Conrad steps on the podium. Emily rushes around looking for Jack. She tells him not to do it when she finds him and that everything does have to do with her. She says, "Jack, look at me." He sees Amanda Clark as she confesses it.
What an incredible season finale. There was so much going on and so many people to worry about next season that it is hardly a let down to finally have it come out that Emily is Amanda. What happened to Nolan is certainly a bothersome cliff hanger. Do we dare buy into Nolan being the Americon Initiative? If justice does not come at the hands of Jack Porter, where will it come from next season is the big question.
