She wants to make sure that David wasn’t involved in Nolcorp’s finances.
Aiden is listening into their conversation. She wants to make sure that years ago when Nolcorp invested in Grayson Global, David wasn’t associated with the company as she doesn’t want a terrorist handling the company’s finance. Daniel tells her he will look into it. Ashley is relieved to hear this. But Daniel isn’t as he tells her that Tyler approached Nolcorp for the first time last year; this means they haven’t invested with them before. At the hospital, Kara meets Emily and Emily tells her that she is Carl’s godmother. They begin talking about Amanda when Mason Treadwell arrives. He is glad to be introduced to Kara Clarke.

And Kara’s arrival is a revelation. Amanda arrives and Treadwell helps her out of the wheel chair. He stares at her back. Emily tells Kara that they should leave and that since Amanda is staying with her, she could visit them at her place. Kara is upset that Amanda didn’t recognize her. Nolan finds the framed check from David on the table and asks Padma what she did with it. Padma tells him that she didn’t do anything. He then tells her that he will take her for breakfast and since it is only ten in the night, they have some time to kill. At the bar, Ashley tells Aiden that Emily and Daniel were engaged and she cheated on him. Aiden is glad that she did.

Just then Gordon’s phone rings and Aiden is pissed. Emily warns him from taking the call. He leaves. Emily calls Nolan and tells him that Padma was inquiring about her father’s investment in his company. Nolan is shocked but doesn’t say anything to Padma. At home, Emily tells Amanda that she needs to make Kara leave and tells her how Kara tried to kill her when she was five. It is the best for Carl. Amanda agrees. Aiden arrives to meet Daniel and tells him that he knows about the Nolcorp request.
He tells him that it is possible that Nolan came to David for start-up money and David would have given him from his personal account. If this is the case, then it means that Grayson Global still has a control over Nolcorp and if this is proven then Aiden gets a seat in the board and Daniel gets to sit behind his father’s desk.

Amanda tells her that they should tell Jack the truth as he deserves to know it. Emily feels that if jack knows the truth now, it will only break his heart. Next, Emily is standing on the beach and Kara arrives.
Kara wants to know if Amanda really forgives her and she says that she thinks so. Treadwell meets Amanda. He knows that the real Amanda Clarke suffered from burn injuries at one of the foster care and he saw no marks on her back at the hospital. Amanda tells him that she had it removed. He tells her that she might be many things to many people; but she is definitely not David and Kara’s daughter. The episode ends.
