Mason Treadwell pays a visit to Amanda, still believing that she is Emily Thorne. He wants to ask her about her friendships, and shows her a photograph from Allenwood Juvenile Detention Center in which both Amanda Clarke and Emily Thorne appear. He tells her that she can either tell him the truth now or she can read all about it in his next New York Times bestseller. After sending him on his way with no real answers, Amanda meets Aiden for breakfast and they discuss their plans for Grayson Global. Amanda tells Aiden that he has 24 hours to position Daniel to take over as CEO. She knows that the charges against Conrad are going to be dropped and that the Initiative plans to send an envoy to the investors meeting at the Graysons’ home.
Victoria and Conrad are also discussing the investors and the attaché from the Initiative. He is fairly certain that they’re going to deliver the marching orders Victoria and Conrad are to follow. She is determined to take the sinister group head on and take them straight to hell right along with the couple. After they are through talking, Kara announces that she’s leaving and asks Victoria for a credit card number to confirm her flight.
While Jack and Emily are talking wedding plans – and dropping fashion designer, Narciso Rodriguez’, name – Mason calls, asking Emily to meet him for lunch. He tells her that he would like to get her side of the David Clarke/Grayson Global story. When Emily tells the real Amanda about his request for an interview, Amanda tells her to cancel it. He is to stop calling or Emily is to get a restraining order against him.
A brief and strange conversation takes place between Kenny Ryan, Jack’s new partner, and his brother Nate – great, double the trouble. Nate is very interested in more of the businesses along the dock and seems to be willing to take down the Porters to achieve his goal.
Aiden meets with Nolan to talk about Amanda’s plan to infiltrate Grayson Global, as well as drawing out the Initiative. She’s adamant that Daniel must take over as CEO and that the investors have to believe that the company has major holdings in NolCorp. In order to make that happen, the 20-year-old check and note from David Clarke to Nolan has to be offered up as proof. Nolan says he’s willing to do it because he cares about Amanda. Aiden says that his interest in helping is because he’s trying to make amends for hurting Amanda and would do anything to win her and her trust back. We all know that he’s crazy about her and that’s a huge incentive. Having agreed to serve the cause, Aiden calls Daniel to tell him about the David Clarke check.
Mason drops by the Porters’ bar, telling Emily that he’s not there to see her but to show Jack the Allenwood photograph. Faux Amanda tells him that it was all faux Emily’s idea as she is obsessed with everything about her and David Clarke. She agrees to meet Mason at his place but warns him that faux Emily can’t know.
The investors’ meeting has begun at the Graysons and, just as they thought, the Initiative has sent their favorite envoy – Helen Crowley. Aiden gives the David Clarke papers to Ashley and tells her to hand them to Daniel. Amanda has been tracking Kara through Victoria’s credit card number and knows that she’s headed to Colorado Springs.
Emily has met Mason at his home and sees his amazing dot to dot work on his cork board. He tells her that he’s going to write a book that will clear David Clarke and will also expose the faux Emily as a crazy stalker. When he brings up Frank Stephens’ murder, Emily moves to club him over the head but is stopped when the real Amanda enters the room. Amanda tells Mason that she is, in fact, Amanda. She recounts their interviews when she was a young girl. He, in turn, lets her know that he regrets not doing what he had promised – which was to write the truth about David Clarke. While they talk, Nolan calls and tells Amanda that Kara has gone rogue. Amanda tells Mason that it’s about time he made amends. Mason then calls Kara and tells her that he has information about Gordon Murphy’s murder.
Kara and Mason meet and he shows her the pocket watch with her picture inside. While Amanda listens and coaches his side of the conversation, Mason tells Kara that she should get as far away from these people as possible. Then he decides to go a little further than Amanda wanted. Mason takes it upon himself to tell Kara that David Clarke is innocent. Amanda is angry and tries to remind him that Kara is off of her medication and is very unstable. Amanda has good reason to be concerned.
While Conrad is trying to convince investors that he and Grayson Global are doing just fine, Daniel is doing is own pitch to become CEO. He then tells them about the NolCorp connection and money, hoping that the information will seal the deal and put him in charge.
Kara has made her way to the Graysons, and while the men of the family are busily cutting each other’s throats, she cuts off a few of their security cameras. A maid tells Conrad that Victoria has a matter of utmost urgency and needs to see him. The urgent matter is Kara and she has a gun trained on Victoria. She then tells the newlyweds that they have to confess their part in framing David Clarke and killing the plane passengers. Conrad says that he did it to get back at David for stealing Victoria. Victoria tries to reach for her own gun but Kara already has it. Victoria then tells Kara to look in the lining of her jewelry box and Kara sees the other half of the prison picture where Gordon Murphy killed David Clarke. The Graysons also tell her that Gordon was the one who blew up the plane. Kara doesn’t want to hear any of it and tells Victoria and Conrad to put on blindfolds and kneel down in the dressing room. Before she can exact her own revenge, Aiden knocks her out with chloroform. She wakes up in Amanda’s car and Aiden and Amanda are trying to convince her to save herself before the Initiative finders her and kills her.
Mason has been arrested for Gordon Murphy’s murder thanks to a few well-placed tips to the police – the flight recorder that was put in his house and found during the execution of a search warrant. Amanda visits him at the police station and tells him that his time has come to set things right. He is to confess to the crime he didn’t commit and go to prison. When she is ready and her work is done, Amanda says that she will free him with her own confession. Until then, she says, he should write the book that he should have written in the first place. He agrees to the deal.
Victoria and Conrad are convinced that the glitch in their security system was the work of the Initiative because they still need their services. Mason is seen giving his confession to the police. Amanda and Aiden are kissing like two people who share more than Revenge School. Best of all, Padma tells Nolan that she would like him even if he was simply Nolan Ross – with or without NolCorp and all of the money.
Revenge won’t be back with a new episode until Sunday, November 25th, and then we’ll get to meet Victoria’s mother.
