EMILY THORNE OR AMANDA CLARKE -- With David Clarke back in the headlines and Victoria in control, Emily needs a new strategy to orchestrate a reunion with her father.[3]



David visits what he believes is his daughter’s gravesite. Victoria is by his side. Throngs of reporters snap pictures of them. Emily sees footage of this on TV. She takes her frustrations about Victoria getting to her dad first on a poor, defenseless punching bag. Later, she’s in a crowd of onlookers when a speeding car tries to run down David, who is determined to find out what really happened to his daughter.

Jack is being harassed by reporters to the point where his sergeant forces him to sit out his shift. His partner, Ben, wonders why Conrad Grayson’s murder case is just gathering dust. He decides to do some digging. He believes that Jack may be the killer until he learns he had an airtight alibi. That doesn’t mean he won’t stop digging. It’ll be tougher to do once his boss forces him to turn over the file.

Emily pleads with Charlotte to help her get close to her father. Nolan fears she is rushing to meet a man who doesn’t exist anymore. As for Emily, she thwarts Margaux’s attempt to get a David Clarke exclusive. She then receives a text from Charlotte. It’s an invitation to her father’s hotel room. David isn’t there. He’s been brought to Jack’s place to meet his grandson (who isn’t really his grandson). The only person waiting for Emily in the hotel room is Victoria, who taunts her to tell David who she is. David arrives with Charlotte at Jack house Jack shock see Amanda dad they hug,David says to Jack that he grown into honourable man and is proud of him for looking after he daughter

Charlotte taunts Jack with veiled comments as David meets little Carl. She’s manipulating things to cause trouble. David visits Nolan when he learns that Amanda was living above a bar. He thinks he may not have given his daughter the Infinity Box and everything else he left for her. Nolan tells him to not believe everything everyone tells him. He later tells Emily that there’s still a chance she can reconnect with her dad.

Daniel continues to get close to Louise, who continues to flirt with him relentlessly. He gives her the idea that he’s a free agent. The two of them succumb to passion. Elsewhere, Emily apologizes to Margaux for how she acted. She wants to do something for David. It helps Margaux circumvent Victoria’s media blackout of David. It involves having Daniel giving him the deed to his old beach house. Margaux gets an exclusive interview as part of this deal.

Margaux wants exclusive rights to cover David Clarke. Victoria makes a deal where she gets final approval before anything airs. As for Daniel, he lets Louise know that their time together in the bedroom was a one-time thing. They can still do business together though. Louise appears to be okay with this. Then she gets angry and calls someone at Page 6. She has a story to tell about Daniel Grayson.

Emily knows her father needs time to recover. She’ll win him back honestly, with the truth. When he’s ready, she’ll let him know that she’s still here. Emily hears music playing from her new neighbor’s house. It’s a song she used to dance to with her dad. Jack lets her know that he doesn’t want to lie to David again about Carl. He also says that he only wants her to be happy.

An intoxicated Charlotte gets into a cab with a strange man. She’s likely looking to feel numb after Jack accused her of being just like Conrad. Back at the beach house, David writes a note to Amanda. He believes she was wronged by someone he trusted. There must be repercussions for this. David vows to his daughter that he will have revenge.

I have come to learn that evil takes many forms, including those that we think we can trust the most. The anger that spread almost cost me the thing that I valued above all else. My memories of you, the daughter I still love, infinity times infinity. And now I can still feel you again which is why I know what I must do, for you were wronged as I was, and by someone I trusted. There must be repercussions, and I swear to you, Amanda, I will have revenge.
