(From ABC)
Emily is in danger as Victoria plans a potentially lethal family reunion -- no matter who is caught in the crossfire.

(Recap From ABC)
Fire rages as the Stowaway is engulfed in flames. Jack rushes inside to find Emily unconscious on the floor. He shields her from the ensuing blasts. The fire department arrives on the scene as Jack carries Emily out to safety. Charlotte watches from afar through the smoke and chaos before exiting the scene. Emily makes no mention of the fact that her suddenly-homicidal half-sis was inside the building with her when the fire broke out.

Jack learns that Charlotte was, indeed, at the Stowaway when the fire started. She lied to an onlooker about nobody being inside. Emily confirms that Charlotte knocked her out and left her for dead. She’ll deal with this turn of events in her own way. She’s going to try to get through to Charlotte even though she has no real plan. As for Jack, he tells Emily that he’s not going to rebuild the Stowaway.

Margaux declines Daniel’s invitation to spend the night after a round of lovemaking. Elsewhere, Victoria wants David to lay low in a cabin until she can see her banker about getting some funds together. She doesn’t want to share him until he has to. Victoria learns that all her assets are either frozen or gone. Daniel clues her in on Charlotte’s latest escapades. Neither of them notices Louise, Victoria’s roomie in the mental institution, watching them from afar.

Louise tracks down Victoria on the street. She offers to help with her situation. Victoria politely dismisses her vowing that she’ll be in touch when things change. Elsewhere, Charlotte’s pill-popping gets put on hold when her mom shows up. She confirms that Emily Thorne is Amanda Clarke. She admits that she tried to kill her. Victoria promises Charlotte that she’ll protect her. She lets her know that her real father is alive. They can’t tell him that his other daughter is also amongst the living. Moments later, David meets Charlotte for the first time.

Emily shows up at the cabin while David is away. Victoria pulls a shotgun on her. Emily apologizes to Charlotte and taunts her archenemy to fire away. Victoria refuses to do so. That would be too easy. She owes her much more than a quick death. Emily heads back to her car where Jack’s partner happens to be on patrol. He offers to get to know Emily better. That’s probably not going to happen anytime soon.

Victoria fills in David on how Emily is now after Charlotte. She wants him to stay put to protect her. David has other ideas in mind as he heads out into the world with a knife hidden on his person. As for Victoria, she needs money. So she heads of to attempt to tap one more source. That would be Margaux, who offers to give her a loan.

Daniel’s friend, Jamie, lets him know that he’s persona non grata in the business world. The hits just keep on coming when Daniel is booted from his hotel room due to unpaid rent. He overhears Louise yelling at someone on the phone while drowning his sorrows in the bar. He perks up when she lets it slip that she’s rich. Let the flirting begin!

A worried Nolan sets up surveillance cameras inside the manor. He sees a hooded figure entering Emily’s bedroom as she sleeps. It’s David. He stares down at his prey with his knife drawn. He doesn’t act though. Moments later, Nolan storms into the room. He fires a shot at the intruder. David jumps out the window. He escapes without Emily or Nolan having gotten a clear look at just who this intruder was.
