Hospital archives at New Mercy Hospital in Manhasset, New York at night. In a lab coat and glasses, Ems rifles through records with a flashlight. She finds Carole Miller's file, but there's a records request form in it as late as 2006. Emanda calls the doctor listed and pretends she wants to cross reference a common patient. He says he has a Carole Thomas who's still alive and well. Interesting.
Emanda has driven out to Lancaster, Pennsylvania to meet this Carole Thomas. She walks up to the door and knocks, but Carole appears behind her. Ems holds up a fake badge from Homeland Security and asks to talk about Conrad. Inside, Emanda asks to verify if Carole was Conrad's personal secretary for 18 years, which she was. Ems next asks what she knew about David Clarke. Was she surprised by his conviction? Everyone was. Emanda wanders over to the mantel and notices a framed photo of Carole and Nolan together just as she hears a shotgun cock behind her. She turns to find the barrel in her face. Carole demands to see her badge more closely, but before awkwardness or blood baths can ensue, Nolan comes running downstairs, yelling, "No, no no... Aunt Carole, just put the gun down!" Emanda is like, "Say whaaaaaaa?!" Both ladies are very confused, so Nolan timidly introduces Carole to Amanda Clarke. Carole looks like she's just seen a ghost.
The three have taken seats at Carole's breakfast table to go over what happened back when she worked at Grayson Global. Nolan had told her after he met David in prison that he believed David had been set up, so she began investigating on her own. She hooked up with Grayson Senior Accountant, Roger Halsted, who had discovered discrepancies in their books connecting Conrad to the terrorists. They were too late to relay this info to David before he was murdered. FLASHBACK: A young, badly coiffed Nolan urgently calls Carole while he drives. He tells her without explanation to get up from her desk at Grayson Global and leave to go into hiding. She walks right past Conrad and briefly makes eye contact with him, but gets out of the office. /FLASHBACK. Carole credits Nolan for saving her life by faking her death. Nolan asks Carole to tell Emanda about "the white-haired man." She goes on to describe a man who regularly met with Conrad in meetings off the books. He had icy blue eyes and a full head of white hair. He terrified even Conrad. When Carole gets up to tend to a kettle, Nolan gets closer to Ems to quietly explain that he couldn't provide Emanda the final journal because protecting his family was more important than her revenge. She understands completely because she would've done the same thing if she had the opportunity to protect her family.
