She witnesses the surprise in Father Paul's face when he sees the photos.
Margaux apologizes for their tryst when Daniel comes to the office. He accepts her apology and suggests working in a separate location – Montauk.
When Victoria meets with Aiden, he expresses concern over her checking out his story with Nolan. She doesn't trust Aiden yet. Aiden presents the deed to Nolan's house with Emily's name on it. Emily took Victoria's money. They are all her pawns.
Emily lights candles in the church while she tells her dad she's sorry. Conrad comes in to see Father Paul. She alerts him there was incident and he's left. Conrad thinks he has no one left to talk to. Later she visits Nolan and tells him he was right. Now she has to fix it so she can get Conrad to confess to Father Paul what he did to her father.
Emily may have learned a valuable lesson tonight - innocent people can get hurt when it comes to revenge. Lucky for her she has Nolan, more than Conrad admits having now, he has nobody after Charlotte found out he knew about the bomb. It's too bad the best Emily can do with what she learned is just use it to her advantage to go after Conrad, but then, she is after revenge. Charlotte is becoming a strong person throughout everything that keeps going on in her life. Perhaps in the end she and Emily can make amends…but will it be a relationship further bent on more revenge?
