Unfortunately for Charlotte, Emily's new plan is to kidnap Charlotte and use her to get the Graysons to publicly confess their involvement in the flight 197 crash to clear David Clarke. Emily tells Conrad using voice distortion that he has until the end of the night to confess to ensure Charlotte's safety.

The detective Margaux was talking with stops Emily outside of her car to talk about Pascal's death. He wants to bring her down to the station to talk more about it. At the station, he shows Emily a still from the security footage that Daniel identified as her running down the stairs. As she's talking, Emily dials Nolan so he can hear what's going on at the police station. The detective also asks Emily if she knows why Pascal was wearing a wire when he died, since he wasn't working with any other police organizations. Daniel is at the station, too, making sure the detective doesn't go easy on Emily.
Nolan recruits Aiden to help with the police station, but that means that Jack has to stay and help with Charlotte. At first, he doesn't want to, but Aiden convinces him to by saying that Emily is never going to be Amanda Clarke (the girl Jack used to love) again until she takes Conrad down.
Victoria gets the DNA results from her PI. And we all know that it says that Carl and Charlotte aren't genetically related. She tells Conrad she won't be at the press conference because she thinks he's setting her up. Conrad pleads with her, saying that she's costing Charlotte her life, but she's not going to confess with him in front of the cameras.
Charlotte begs to talk to the kidnapper, and now Jack's the only one there. He can't bear to listen to her cry, so he tells her to put the blindfold on and he puts his mask on to grab her and tell her he's letting her go. He brings her to the beach where he leaves her with a knife to cut herself free of her ties. Then he walks away without her knowing it's him.
At the police station, Aiden attacks Daniel, unprovoked. I'm not sure what this is achieving exactly, but it's satisfying to see Aiden really knock Daniel on his feet. The cops take Aiden away, and Daniel meets with Margaux who demands to know what's happening. Daniel ends up telling Margaux the truth about her father's involvement in everything. Not surprisingly, she's upset to find out what a real scumbag her late father was. But this knowledge brings Daniel and Margaux even closer together. The two are probably going to do it at some point in the near future. Confession
Conrad is practicing his speech minutes away from his conference when Charlotte walks in the room at Grayson Manor. He's elated to see that she's unharmed, but Charlotte immediately lays into him, blaming him for all of those people's deaths on flight 197, and especially for framing her father and killing Amanda. She says if he can't look her in the eye and tell her she's wrong, she'll go to the cops herself.
Conrad turns on her, calling her an ungrateful bastard. He says he was about to confess to everything to saver her life, and he has the power to take her out at any time he wants. He says yes, he's still here, and David Clark was just a patsy to his freedom. He says he's the last man standing, and if she even thinks about crossing him, he will erase her like so many others before her.
A light blinks on Charlotte's jacket. A secret camera caught the whole thing and broadcast it out on the news instead of a press conference. Conrad turns on the TV and sees himself and realizes he's been caught. Emily watches, too, and gets emotional when she sees that Conrad is finally done for.
Victoria plays the piano in Grayson Manor as they wait for the authorities to arrive. She's surprised he isn't running, but he says running would be undignified. He's also sure that Charlotte was as surprised as he was that the whole thing had been caught on camera, and he suspects it was Victoria's trap that he walked into because she bowed out of the press conference at the last minute. As the FBI comes to take him away, Victoria tells him, "Goodbye, Conrad. Do rot in hell."
Aiden suggests that he and Emily should celebrate Conrad's demise by doing it. She says the war is not over, there's still Victoria. Jack interrupts their make-out session. Emily tells him it was all a part of the plan letting Charlotte go early and allowing her to do the rest of the work by getting Conrad to confess to her. Jack tells her about the letters that Charlotte was getting from someone pretending to be David Clark. She seems unsettled when he shows her the ring he found with the initials 'DC' on it. She says it did belong to her father.
On her balcony, Victoria is triumphant that Conrad has been taken away. Daniel is shocked to find out that she gambled with Charlotte's life by not agreeing to the ransom. She says she's sure no harm would have come to Charlotte because Emily was behind it, and she now knows for certain that Emily is Amanda Clarke and would never hurt her own sister.
Emily goes to see Conrad in jail. He asks her if she did this and she says yes, in memory of David and Amanda Clarke. And she's not finished yet. But at least for now, she can put a big red X over Conrad's face.
