WHM hops out of his unmarked brown van (creeeeeper) and walks around to the back of it. Emanda gets out of her vehicle and silently follows. When she reaches WHM, he pulls a gun on her and orders her up against the van for a pat down. WHM: "No wire, no phone, no weapon. This is a very dangerous game you're playing. And for what... payback for your father?" Emanda responds that she has evidence in her possession that implicates him and his friends at the Initiative. She demands he take her to Nolan. WHM cordially opens the back of the van and hands her a bottle of chloroform, citing the need for secrecy. He says if she refuses, Nolan dies.
Now... I may not be the smartest man in the world, but I don't think I would willingly knock myself unconscious after I just threatened an armed man with evidence that would destroy him and his employers. What's to stop him from dumping me in a harbor with cement shoes, assuming no one else knows about the evidence? But that's just me, and I am not Emanda because she pours some chloroform into a handkerchief and huffs until WHM's face goes blurry.
FLASHBACK: Little Amanda and David unpack boxes at the beach house. Amanda is distraught because she forgot to pack her mother's photo when she hears a loud noise. She walks outside to find an injured bird. /FLASHBACK.
Emanda wakes up chained against a wall next to a bloodied Nolan. "Good morning, sunshine. If you came here to rescue me, you might want a do-over," he weakly quips. WHM enters the room carrying a case. He tells Emanda he'd rather she tell him where Conrad's evidence is now that way he won't have to go on a wild goose chase... or kill Nolan. He unwraps his case to reveal torture instruments. Emanda says Nolan doesn't concern her. Nolan: "Gee, don't sugarcoat it, Ems." In that case, WHM decides he'll just take a scalpel to Nolan's neck. Emanda stops him and rattles off an address where the evidence is mostly likely not located. What's to stop WHM from killing them both now? Ems says she could be lying, plus she's alerted the authorities. She'd tell him how much time he has but the chronometrophiliac stole her watch. WHM checks her watch and finds a lockpick and sees that it is now 2:30. He has one hour, Ems notes. WHM sees the inscription on the inside of the watch from Victoria to David, and taunts Emanda that her father didn't know what hit him. Emanda: "Tick tock." WHM heads over to Emanda's keys, grabs the key to the safety deposit box Emanda described and walks out. Ems watches him leave on his security video monitor, worried.
