Revenge s02e10 Episode Script

Power

EMILY: Previously on Revenge Tell me who hired you to take my sister.
She's probably dead.
Marco here claims he set up an account that was mysteriously drained a week before Nolcorp went public.
I'll write you a check.
and your continued good faith as its CEO.
The Ryans think your dad killed their old man.
Is it true some old-timer nearly bought it out there? Hey, Daniel.
- Ashley.
- Hey.
ASHLE Y: Daniel, this isn't what you think it is.
- What is it exactly, huh? - No! - Get off me.
You disgust me! - Hey, that's enough! We need to discuss your son's future.
VICTORIA: You so much as lay a hand on my son, and I will kill you myself! So it's official.
He's the new CEO.
There's no room for you on the board unless someone willingly vacates, and I don't see that happening anytime soon.
I'd like to speak to you about a matter of grave importance.
It's about Daniel.
EMILY: Power Born out of nature, coveted by man.
(BOTH GRUNTING) Wars rage on, and victors are crowned Ugh! (GRUNTS) But true power can never be lost or won.
True power comes from within.
(GRUNTS AND PANTS) You're in top shape.
(EXHALES) I have to be.
(PANTS) The sun's nearly up.
Round two? How about we switch gears? (HORN HONKS IN DISTANCE) Morning, early riser.
Well, that's an encouraging sign given your hard-won new title.
Being CEO of a global investment firm isn't exactly a 9-to-5 commitment.
Then I promise, I'll only take a moment of your time.
(CAR DOOR CLOSES) I gather this meeting isn't as impromptu as it feels.
The conglomerate I represent is very particular about where we invest, in business and in people.
I agree.
It's important to know who you're getting into bed with.
Before you delve deeper into our complex association, let me suggest you dig a little closer to home.
Meaning? You've already uncovered one of your father's secret assets in Nolcorp.
Apply the same principle that led you there, and you will find that there's far more buried inside Grayson Global than meets the eye.
Secrets that will make you wealthier and more powerful than your father ever dreamed.
Morning.
Must have slept through my alarm.
I turned it off.
You were tossing and turning all night.
I wanted you to sleep in.
What's going on, Jack? Is there something I need to know? Yeah.
I've, uh I've been keeping a secret from you.
(LAUGHS) Our sea glass? I was thinking you could wear it to our wedding.
It's something new from something old.
It's something borrowed from the sea.
- And something blue.
- (DOOR OPENS) I love it, and I love you.
Mm.
- (DOOR CLOSES) - I'd tell you two to get a room, but, uh, look what that led to, your own little stowaway.
(CHUCKLES) Hey, Nate.
What you got there? Uh, supplies.
Hey, uh, why don't you put your hands to better use, JP, huh? Maybe wipe down the bar before we open.
You got it.
Since when do you take orders from the Ryan brothers? Just trying to keep the peace, babe.
They're our partners now.
At least for the time being.
AMANDA: Something's not right about 'em, Jack.
I can feel it.
(CELL PHONE RINGS) Are you going to answer that? (RINGING CONTINUES) (RINGING STOPS) (EXHALES) Need I remind you that Daniel is having his coffee in your former office right now.
Yes, an office he's vastly unprepared for.
Why do you think the phone keeps ringing? The investors are probably in a panic.
They're not the only ones.
The longer Daniel remains in power, the more likely the Initiative is to use him the way they used us all those years ago.
Daniel's shortcomings will soon readily become apparent, and they will just move on.
How can you be so glib? Because Daniel refuses to listen to either one of us.
And short of telling him the truth and sealing his doom, we've done everything we could to try and get through to him.
(SCOFFS) Not everything.
I just got off the phone with Patricia Barnes.
She and her husband are going to be spending the weekend with us.
Patricia and Judge Barnes? The man's weeks away from a Supreme Court confirmation.
You'd think our home would be the last place he'd want to be seen.
Oh, but not Patricia.
I just bought us the head table at her annual Liberty Project benefit.
And why, pray tell, would you want to do that? Because her organization is dedicated to helping the falsely convicted appeal their unjust verdicts.
And as a man wrongly accused of a crime yourself, this benefit is the perfect venue for you to begin rehabilitating your image.
Well, if they sold stock in irony, I would be richer than the sultan of Brunei.
When Daniel inevitably falters as the head of Grayson Global, the board is sure to welcome you back with open arms.
Well, the question remains, how do we convince Daniel to abdicate? - We don't.
- Hm? Emily Thorne does.
"Dear Mr.
Clarke, "As Dr.
King once said, "'Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.
' "I'm afraid you've suffered a grave injustice.
"My position during your trial "afforded me an inside access to the system, "a system I truly believed in "until I witnessed a man charged with upholding the law "act outside of it.
"Judge Barnes has failed you, as have I.
" It isn't signed.
Yeah, but I'm almost certain that James Palmer wrote it.
Who's James Palmer? The courtroom clerk during my father's trial.
My father's theory was that Palmer alerted Judge Barnes to the one member of the jury who still believed my father was innocent.
And then Barnes passed that juror's name on to To the Graysons.
Exactly.
(CLICKS KE YBOARD KE Y) I've expressed the court's heartfelt condolences to juror number seven and his family, and have recused him from service.
An alternate juror has been added to the panel.
The trial will proceed without delay.
- Thank you.
- (CLICKS KE YBOARD KE Y) EMILY: That's Palmer, right next to Barnes.
He was killed in a subway accident three days after this was postmarked.
They got to him before you.
(SIGHS) If I can position myself in front of Barnes, and raise the specter of James, maybe I can trip him up.
You'd think if there were any evidence of judicial impropriety, that the Senate subcommittee would've found it by now.
(SIGHS) I don't know.
Maybe.
Maybe not.
(PAPERS RUSTLING) Hey.
It's okay.
(SIGHS) If you need to leave, you need to use the back door.
I can't have Victoria seeing you here again.
(WHISPERS) Okay.
VICTORIA: So glad you could make it, Emily.
What a lovely view of my beach house.
I hardly noticed.
You certainly did the other night.
Well, I do apologize for interrupting the evening with your new paramour.
(CHUCKLES) (GLASS CLINKS) You said Daniel's in trouble.
Yes.
I'm afraid he's gotten himself in over his head with this new job.
How so? Running a company like Grayson Global requires a ruthless temperament, and I That's not a quality that comes naturally to Daniel.
It seemed to come naturally when he unseated his own father.
I assume Conrad didn't go willingly.
No.
(CHUCKLES) I'm not sure I understand your concern.
Ever since your engagement ended, I've witnessed some disturbing changes in Daniel's behavior.
He's become petulant and angry.
I'm sorry to hear that.
I knew you would be.
Unfortunately, my son has walled himself off from me completely, but I believe that you still have the power to reach him.
And what makes you think that? Because in spite of my interference and your transgression last winter, I'm of the opinion that my son is very much in love with you.
And assuming that you ever loved him, too, I'm asking you to step in and help stem the tide before it's too late.
Unless of course your feelings for him were less than genuine all along.
Of course not.
I loved him very much.
Then remind him of the man that he aspired to be when he was with you.
Persuade him to drop his interest in Grayson Global, and I will stand behind you every step of the way, come what may.
(SIGHS DEEPLY) You really believe he still loves me? I would bet my life on it.
Hm.
(CHUCKLES) (INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS) Victoria.
Robert.
(LAUGHS) (BOTH KISSING) - Patricia.
- Hello.
(KISSES) It's so lovely to see you both.
I'd like to introduce a very dear family friend and neighbor, Emily Thorne.
Very nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you, too.
Judge Barnes, this must be a thrilling time for you.
Indeed.
Pleasure, Ms.
Thorne.
PATRICIA: Victoria, we are so grateful to you for offering to host us while we're in town.
It's a much-welcomed respite from the hearings.
Well, you're about the only thing that both parties can agree on.
You're a shoo-in.
From your mouth to Congress' ears.
(LAUGHS) Mm.
I'll leave you two to get settled.
Victoria, thank you for the lemonade.
Ms.
Thorne, I hope to see you again.
Oh, you will.
Emily, you are coming to dinner tonight, aren't you? Daniel will be there as well.
Who can say "no" to Victoria? (CHUCKLES) (LAUGHS) CHARLOTTE: Don't you think my parents should pay for Jack and Amanda's wedding, considering Amanda never even called a lawyer after cartwheeling off the second-floor balcony? They'd be stupid not to offer.
Earth to Declan.
Come in, Declan.
Okay.
When Nate and Kenny come back in here, I need you to help me do something, okay? Sure.
What? (DOOR OPENS, SWITCH CLICKS) Okay.
Mm.
Get this.
My mom's latest charity case? Ex-convicts.
Which is cool, but But I don't know.
They're all so damaged.
Prison seems like hell.
(CHUCKLES) What? Did I say something wrong? KENNY: Don't, little brother.
She doesn't want to hear about that.
Where'd you boyfriend go to get more bourbon, Kentucky? Yeah, you know what? I'll go check on him.
He probably got lost.
Wait.
What? You don't want me to hear? Oh! Son of a bitch.
Okay.
Well, back when I was young and dumb, I used to live with a bunch of guys who were, uh, what? Purveyors of recreational Curiosities, shall we say.
(BEANS RUSTLING) The DEA busts in.
They raid the place.
Guess who's the only sucker at home? You.
Oh, my God.
(EXHALES) (SIGHS) I went inside for five years for something I had nothing to do with.
And I'll tell you something else.
It isn't like hell.
It is hell.
Seriously, I never would've guessed.
Yeah, well, I guess I clean up nice.
Obviously, your boyfriend did get lost.
- I'll be right back.
- Wait.
I'll go get him.
(CHUCKLES) No.
I'll tell you what.
You stay here.
I'll go get him.
Okay? (BOTTLES CLINK) What the hell is taking you so long? Nothing.
It's just really hard to find stuff with all your junk in the way.
What is it anyway? Wholesale coffee beans.
It's a side business, and it's none of yours.
(CRUNCH) Hey, Grace, if you could hold all my calls till after lunch.
- Yes, Mr.
Grayson.
- Thank you.
(AIDEN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY) Okay.
Hi, Grace.
Uh, Daniel have a minute? I'm sorry.
Mr.
Grayson's gone to lunch.
- You just missed him.
- Ah.
Would you like me to give him a call? Nah.
No, the poor guy deserves an hour to himself.
Uh, let him enjoy his sushi in peace.
Actually, I had him down for a reservation at the Rider House.
Oh, well, even better.
I'II, I'll catch him later.
Okay.
(AUTODIALING) (RINGING, LINE CLICKS) He's headed to Rider House on Fulton.
EMILY: Then so are we.
Hurry down.
DECLAN: They're running drugs through the bar, Jack.
What are we gonna do? We're not gonna do anything.
What if they'd caught you? But they didn't.
One of them is always here when they try to move that stuff, so I How else was I supposed to find out? Not by involving Charlotte, for starters.
I just told her that I needed to make sure they weren't skimming inventory.
Just leave her out of it from now on.
I want us all out of it from now on.
Mr.
Duncan is still in the hospital after the ass beating they gave him.
I know, Dec.
I know.
(SIGHS) Do you remember Eddie Solomon? Yes.
The guy used to jump me when you two were in high school.
He's a cop now.
Well, that's shocking.
I think I might have a way out of this.
Fazzio.
- Hi.
- Hi.
Hey.
I expected you to go at least a month before waving the white flag.
Oh.
Well, I'm sorry to disappoint.
I'm here because I've heard rumors you stashed away a number of secret investments inside the company walls.
I haven't the slightest idea what you're talking about.
Oh.
That's how it's gonna be, is it? Oh, yeah, Daniel.
This is pretty much exactly how it's gonna be.
You stole my company.
If there's anything else you're after, you're just gonna have to steal that, too.
(MAN SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY) Ooh.
Speaking of lost assets, looks like Takeda's boy is following right in your footsteps.
That Emily's a real man-eater.
EMILY: Whatever your problem is with Daniel, it has nothing to do with me.
My problem isn't with Daniel.
It's with this restaurant.
You knew he was gonna be here.
- EMILY: That's crazy.
- AIDEN: Oh, is it? Because I'm beginning to think that the only reason you've been dating me is so that you can keep tabs on your ex.
Oh, that is hilarious.
You asked me out.
If I'd have known that you were this insecure, I wouldn't have said "yes" in the first place.
Well, maybe you shouldn't have bothered.
Believe me, wish I hadn't.
Good-bye, Aiden.
Don't call me again.
(SIGHS) - Are you okay? - Daniel, I'm sorry.
Emily, wait.
- What's going on? - What's it look like? Your ex-fiancée just broke up with me.
(TELEPHONE RINGING IN DISTANCE) Nolan, I see you found my office.
Isn't this where I wait to get my Grayson Global ID badge? When I said I wanted to meet, I figured we'd get one on the books.
Haven't you heard? Books are obsolete.
What's up, boss? I need to know if you can create a program to identify rogue files intentionally hidden inside our computer system.
Oh, listen to you, trying to sound all Techy.
What am I looking for? That wasn't the question.
Can you do it or not? Mm.
Only because I want to make a good impression my first week on your payroll.
Where's the London Fog? I thought you two were attached at the hip.
Probably off somewhere licking his wounds.
Emily broke up with him today.
Oh.
- Really? - (SCRIBBLING) Hmm.
Quelle surprise.
Hey, toss me that pacifier.
Words I never thought I'd hear you say.
(CLATTERS) Going somewhere? Actually, you are.
I'm gonna need you and Carl to go over to Emily's for a couple of nights.
Give us a minute, okay? Yeah.
I grew up around a lot of crappy families, all different kinds of messed up people.
But the one thing they all had in common? They lied to each other.
We're not gonna be those people.
(SIGHS) You're right.
The Ryan brothers aren't good guys.
They rigged it so they could buy into the bar and use our slip to move drugs through here.
They're the ones that put your dad's friend in the hospital.
Which is why I need you to take Carl and get out of here tonight.
Jack, we're a family.
I'm not gonna leave you here to fend for yourself.
I won't be.
I reached out to my buddy on the force.
- Oh.
- He's gonna bust 'em.
- Look, they'll never know I was involved.
- (SIGHS) I know it's not your style to run away from a fight.
But I invited these people into our lives.
I need you to trust me to take them out.
- I do trust you.
- Okay.
I can't tell you how much I hate this.
I know.
Me, too.
(WHISPERS) I love you.
Prince Oedipus just granted me access to the Grayson Global intranet to snoop for him.
It could provide the access we need to unearth the Initiative.
Well, that's great news.
Well, lemons to lemonade.
Ohh.
BT Dubs, I was so sorry to hear about your breakup with Remington Steele.
Though there really wasn't enough room in your sidecar - for both of us.
- Hello, Nolan.
(GASPS) Hey, buddy.
Mmm.
What? Wait, wait, wait.
Wait, wait.
You two (SIGHS) A fake up? Color me impressed.
If I didn't know better, I'd say Daniel's already thinking (SINGSONG Y) Make up.
- That's the idea.
- For now.
I still think I can win back Daniel's confidence.
Well, bros before hos only works if he's not still in love with the ho, bro.
This has nothing to do with love, Nolan.
I have an opportunity to expose Judge Barnes for his part in my father's conviction.
If I have to play nice with Daniel for a little while, then It's a small price to pay.
(CLEARS THROAT) - I'll call you later.
- Yeah.
Mm.
(DOOR OPENS) NOLAN: Hmm.
Could get tricky.
If memory serves, the line between Emily and Daniel and the Initiative has always been decidedly blurred.
- Then you do me a favor.
- Hmm? Help me stay one step ahead of the boy.
Any information about the Initiative you uncover, in particular a woman by the name of Helen Crowley, you let me know first.
Sure.
Greg, we're happy to be a part of your success, right? And long may it continue.
Hello, Daniel.
Oh, forgive me for interrupting.
(LOWERED VOICE) Interrupting is the least of your offenses.
(NORMAL VOICE) Greg, I'll call you back.
It's time we mend fences.
And I've come to offer you my services.
Your services aren't required.
But if I ever need advice on betrayal, I'll be sure to give you a call After Dad.
Well, he does have his considerable shortcomings.
But he did take this firm from a budding hedge fund to a pillar of Wall Street, and he didn't do it alone.
Are you really patting yourself on the back right now? I'm simply giving credit where credit's due.
Where do you think your father brokered his biggest deals, in this office, or over cocktails at polo matches and galas that I hosted? What are you offering to do, Mom, throw me a party? Well, there is a dinner tonight.
And the next US Supreme Court justice will be in attendance.
And if you're serious about your long-term success, so will you.
Oh.
Um Emily Thorne just became a major donor for Patricia Barnes' pet charity.
She'll be there as well, if that helps sway your decision.
(TYPING) (COMPUTER BEEPS) (RESUMES TYPING) You trying to hack into Grayson Global's intranet? Not that it is any of your business, but I am following the orders of my child boss, your pal, Daniel.
You really expect me to believe that Grayson asked you to hack into his own company's files? I don't really care what you believe, Marco.
I am not the bad guy here.
But if you keep siding with Daniel Grayson, the only bad guy here is you.
Nolan, look, we have to stop doing this to each other.
Let's go get some drinks.
(SIGHS) Sorry.
- You had your chance.
- (RESUMES TYPING) - (COMPUTER BEEPS) - Aah.
(CHUCKLES) And I'm in.
Good night, Marco.
(RESUMES TYPING) (DOORBELL RINGS) - Thank you.
- Good evening, Ms.
Thorne.
Emily, you look terrific as always.
Thank you.
(SIGHS) I hope this isn't too awkward.
Are you okay After what happened at lunch today with you and Aiden? Yeah.
Yeah.
Aiden's a good guy.
He's smart.
He's Driven.
But I don't know.
Maybe he's just not for me.
Well, at least you found out before it got too serious.
Luckily, the same can be said for me and Ashley.
Emily.
Oh, you're just on time.
Come join us.
Shall we? (FLAME WHOOSHES) I actually audited a torts class when I was considering law schools in undergrad back in 2002.
- Really? - Mm.
I didn't know that.
Daniel, it seems that your tendency to overlook critical detail is not just exclusive to business.
Mm.
The occasional oversight is far less damaging than willful ignorance.
Oh, enough, you two.
We have guests.
(LAUGHS) Oh, a little competition between men is healthy, Victoria.
After all, it's the foundation of our great nation, huh? (LAUGHS) EMILY: That's what my professor said.
In fact, Judge Barnes, I believe you knew him.
Um, James Palmer.
Yes.
Yes, of course I knew James.
He was a clerk in my court for a time.
Mm.
His accident that winter shook up the entire campus.
Well, he was a good man.
His passion for justice was unparalleled.
Patricia, you knew him, too? Only in legacy.
Which, if I'm not mistaken, includes the infamous David Clarke trial.
I own the man's house.
Conspiracy theorists show up on my doorstep all the time.
To say nothing of David's own daughter Amanda.
She and Emily have become quite friendly lately.
Well, no disrespect to your friend, Ms.
Thorne, but when it comes to that contemptible father of hers, believe me, justice was well served.
Sounds like your certainty gives you great comfort.
I haven't lost a night of sleep over the man, if that's what you're asking.
Mm.
No, that would be my job.
(LAUGHS) (LAUGHS) But, Patricia, surely the Liberty Project has been approached countless times about an appeal.
No.
Actually, it hasn't.
None of my husband's verdicts have ever been second-guessed by the organization.
His opinions are above reproach.
CONRAD: Hence the Supreme Court nomination.
Hear, hear.
Victoria, thank you for the lovely dinner.
But there's much work to be done before tomorrow's benefit.
I'm coming down with a bit of a headache.
Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.
Should I have something sent to you? Thank you.
I think I'll join you, darling.
Good night, all.
Pleasure, Daniel, Ms.
Thorne.
Sorry for dropping in on you like this.
The Stowaway's been rowdy.
Carl hasn't been sleeping, so I haven't been sleeping.
You can stay as long as you need.
AMANDA: "Broken collar bone, fractured wrist"? Whose records are these? - (CLICKS KE Y) - Patricia Barnes.
She's the wife of the judge in my father's trial.
"Dear Mr.
Clarke" Did she write this? I'm beginning to wonder.
(TYPING) It says here, she had a criminal record.
(CHUCKLES) Join the club.
Her judgment was expunged, just like mine.
There must be something here.
Apartheid protest, 1988.
Patricia was a badass.
Maybe back then.
Wait.
I don't believe this.
That's James Palmer next to her.
Who? Barnes' court clerk.
He and Patricia were friends.
Which means, if she did write the letter, whoever killed Palmer believed he wrote it, not her.
That would scare anyone into silence.
Especially if the threat lived under the same roof.
Well, since you've already mastered the links, Grayson, how do you plan to spend the rest of your retirement? (LAUGHS) Retirement is a long way off, Robert.
This is but a respite from my stewardship of the company.
Well, it's just one man's opinion, but I think a man of your acumen, wealth, and guile belongs in politics.
Oh, don't go putting ideas in his head, Robert.
It's the last thing this family needs.
Well, if you'll excuse me, I have a speech to work on.
As do I.
And one without numbers, spin, or projection.
I could get very used to this.
Oh, God help us all.
(TELEPHONE RINGING) So what were you able to find out? Oh Very little.
Until I stumbled across this gem.
What? Conrad has his surveillance system backed up and archived.
This one's from the investors' lunch.
Helen.
Mm.
I enhanced the image And I figured out the number she was calling.
Is it still working? Well, sort of.
It's voice-activated access.
Problem is, Aiden, I can't read lips.
I've tried everything from "integrity" to "Interpol" Ingredi.
She's saying ingredi.
It's, it's Latin for "Entry.
" Very good.
(DIALING) (CLEARS THROAT) (PHONE RINGS, BEEPS) Ingredi.
(BEEPING) HELEN: Mr.
Mathis, I presume? Yes.
I've been expecting your call.
I think it's time we meet.
I couldn't agree more.
(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS) This one is on the house, doll.
Anything else you need, you know who to come to.
Thought we were in this to make money.
And we will when she brings in all her good-Iooking friends, too.
MAN: Ladies and gentlemen, we're closing the Stowaway early this evening - by order of the Montauk PD.
- (DOG SNIFFING) Drinks down, people, and head for the exits.
That means you.
(CROWD SPEAKING INDISTINCTLY) MAN: Drinks down! You're in the deep end now, Mr.
Mathis.
I hope you know how to swim.
So it's true.
You're with the Initiative.
You destroyed my family.
Nothing personal.
You realize I'm three moves away from snapping your neck.
Well, if you do that, how will you ever reunite with your sister? Colleen's dead.
Actually, no.
When you murdered her kidnapper back in 2006, we realized keeping her alive might someday prove useful.
Seems someday is upon us.
So tell me, where have you been these last six years? Hmm? Ah.
Strong and silent.
Good for you.
Bad for Colleen.
Where is she, bitch? - (CLICKING) - One more step and it's all over.
Next time we meet, you bring your manners, and I'll bring an offer.
You mention this meeting to anyone, and you'll never see your sister alive again.
Good-bye, Mr.
Mathis.
(FOOTSTEPS RETREAT) Well, since it looks like we're gonna be here a while, I'd be happy to grind up some of those fine Colombian coffee beans for you officers.
WOMAN: No narcotics here, Sergeant.
Dogs would've found it.
Check the slips.
(WHIMPERS) Nolan, happy Thanksgiving.
What is all this? Because of me, we never had a chance to have this dinner.
And I, I need you to understand No, Marco.
You knew me.
Oh, yeah, you knew me better than anyone else.
Did you really think that I would aid and abet a terrorist or, or greedily keep a young girl's inheritance, really? I want a chance to start over.
And there are so many reasons why That's never gonna happen.
Not the least of which being, ha, I've fallen for someone else.
Then I will wait.
I'll wait as long as it takes.
W What's this? This is the most powerful piece of coding I've ever seen.
Wait.
Carrion? I found some reference docs while I was cleaning up the system files today No, no, no.
This program is cyber-plutonium.
I abandoned that project for a reason.
Maybe it's time you revisit it.
This could be the most important R&D in the industry, a useful weapon against your enemies, or, in this case, your parent company.
Look Like I said I'm in your corner.
(BAND PLAYING JAZZ) (CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING) (INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS) Well, I'm assuming that Conrad's speech will be coming before yours.
Can we also assume that Patricia will be introducing him? Oh, I'm afraid my wife's migraine has not subsided.
She'd prefer to stay out of the spotlight if she can.
Oh.
Conrad will have the honor of introducing himself tonight.
- Happily.
- (CHUCKLES) There you are.
Didn't think they'd let you in after last night's sparring match.
Well, you'd be surprised what people will put up with when you agree to be a platinum-level donor.
(LAUGHS) Speaking of, I'm sorry things got so intense at dinner.
Oh, don't be.
It was a nice reminder how passionate Emily Thorne can be.
I'm gonna go apologize.
(INDISTINCT CONVERSATIONS) (SIZZLING) You love breakfast for dinner.
What's wrong? Nothing.
It's just gonna suck when you burn this boat down.
You need to relax.
- (DOOR BURSTS OPEN) - MAN: Freeze! - (BARKING) - WOMAN: Montauk Police! Declan, what's going on? - MAN: Don't move! - (BARKING) (DOOR OPENS AND CLOSES) EMILY: Patricia.
I just wanted to apologize for last night.
I didn't mean to Insult you or your husband.
He seemed quite upset.
A man in his position learns to keep his temper to himself.
Last I checked, migraines don't cause bruising.
Victoria mentioned that I'm close with David Clarke's daughter, Amanda.
After She lost her father, Amanda was Forced into the foster care system.
She ended up in a number of abusive homes.
That letter gave her the hope she needed to survive.
The thing is, she thought it was written by James Palmer.
No, it wasn't.
He wouldn't have left it unsigned.
(PAPER RUSTLING) (VOICE BREAKS) He was brave.
(RUSTLING CONTINUES) That letter saved Amanda's life.
Tonight you have the opportunity to save a whole lot more.
Maybe even your own.
- (INHALES DEEPLY) - (DOOR OPENS) (EXHALES) (INHALES) - (DOOR CLOSES) - (EXHALES) - (POLICE RADIO CHATTER) - (DOG BARKING) MAN: We found narcotics and a handgun hidden in the bilge.
Oh, my God.
My brother gives you a pass.
This is how you repay him? What pass? Declan, what's he talking about? NATE: The kid broke into my brother's house a couple of months back.
We never said anything 'cause Kenny figured he learned his lesson.
Obviously, he got it wrong.
Declan Porter, you're under arrest No, wait! Wait, wait.
Stop.
It's mine.
- Jack.
Jack! - All of it.
The boat's in my name.
My brother had no idea there were drugs hidden on it.
Then Jack Porter, you're under arrest for possession with intent to distribute - and possession of a firearm.
- (HANDCUFFS CLICKING) You have the right to remain silent.
Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to an attorney CONRAD: To be falsely accused Is a gut-ripping experience.
And that's why I plan to redouble my efforts to help the wrongfully accused by donating not only my finances but my time to the Liberty Project With the hope that someday we may truly live in a world of liberty and justice for all.
(GUESTS MURMURING) ROBERT: Thank you, Conrad.
Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to introduce my wife, Patricia Barnes.
Thank you.
A man far wiser and braver than I once said, "There may be times when we are powerless to prevent injustice, "but let there never be a time when we fail to protest.
" (APPLAUSE) (INHALES SHARPLY) When I was in law school, I met a man named James Palmer.
He was young and bright-eyed, full of hope and integrity.
Robert hired James to be his court clerk during the trial of David Clarke.
(INHALES DEEPLY) For years after the trial James had wanted to come forward with information that, at the very least, would've resulted in a mistrial.
(CROWD MURMURING) But out of concern for my safety, he kept that dark secret hidden.
Three days before his death That secret came out in a letter written to Mr.
Clarke in federal prison.
"Dear Mr.
Clarke, "I'm afraid you have suffered a grave injustice.
" Patricia.
- Robert.
- (CAMERA SHUTTER CLICKING) (CROWD MURMURING) "My position has provided me unparalleled access to the system.
"Judge Barnes has failed you, Mr.
Clarke, as have I.
" You see, what James knew is what Judge Barnes knew, which is that the verdict rendered in the David Clarke trial came from a tainted jury.
(GUESTS MURMURING) I believe that this letter cost James the ultimate price.
But James didn't write it.
I did.
(GUESTS GASPING AND MURMURING) And today my husband, Robert Barnes, stands to inherit a great deal more power.
And The greater the power, the greater the potential for abuse.
(GUESTS GASPING AND MURMURING) (CAMERA SHUTTERS CLICKING) (MURMURING CONTINUES) (CLICKING CONTINUES) My wife and I are shocked to learn the true nature of a man we all thought we knew, and I pledge to pool my resources to ensure Judge Barnes' wrongdoings, both judicial and domestic, are avenged.
Rest assured, justice will be served.
- Thank you.
- (REPORTERS SPEAKING AT ONCE) (CELL PHONE RINGS, BEEP) Hello.
HELEN: Hello, Daniel.
I saw you and your family had another interesting public evening.
Well, except this time, the press may actually work in my father's favor.
How are you faring in your hunt for those elusive Grayson assets? If I didn't know better, I'd say you sent me on a wild goose chase.
You turned to Nolan Ross for his assistance, am I correct? Yeah.
In doing so, Mr.
Ross left a trail of digital breadcrumbs, a trail your IT department will be able to follow right back to Nolcorp and its secrets.
One in particular, I think you'll find very lucrative.
I'm listening.
Charlotte get home all right? Yeah.
Yeah, not without a lot of explanation, though.
She deserves it after a night like this Your boat impounded, your brother arrested.
(CHAIR SCRAPES FLOOR) (SIGHS) Jack's a good guy, taking the fall.
Kenny, you know that wasn't our stuff.
(SIGHS) I'm sorry for what happened.
Truly.
Hey, whoever called the cops today made a huge mistake.
(DOOR CLOSES) I just hope that they come to their senses, or things might get worse around here.
A lot worse.
Kenny, you coming? Oh, uh, Declan, be a pal, huh? Clean up a little bit.
(PHONE RINGS) - (LINE CLICKS) - AMANDA: Hello.

(CRYING CONTINUES) - (CONTINUES CRYING) - (BEEP) (WAILING) EMILY: Power can be hoarded by the mighty or stolen from the innocent.
AIDEN: Ems, I'm gonna take a shower.
Okay.
Power provides the ability to choose (RUSTLES PAPER) But has a proclivity for corruption.
- Daniel.
- Hey.
Do you have a second? Yeah.
Sorry to stop by unannounced.
Is everything okay? Yeah.
I just I tried to tell you this earlier, but of course my mother interrupted.
It's what she does.
Mm.
I wanted you to know, the reason I fought so hard to become CEO was to set things right.
You see, the only thing larger than our company's image problem is our charitable foundation.
Emily, you're the most philanthropic person I know, and I could really use your help steering our resources in that direction.
W Well, I'm flattered, but You don't have to answer now.
Just Just tell me you'll think about it.
Okay.
Daniel.
I don't need to think about it.
My answer's "yes.
" The use of power is not to be taken lightly For it is never without consequence.
