Tyler found the incriminating speech Lydia almost gave at the charity gala and shortly after, started doing Google searches on Emily’s father. Nolan discovered this little piece of knowledge and let his gal pal in on it. Emily wanted to use this to her advantage so she had Nolan pull back his investment. She wanted to push Tyler into blackmailing Conrad, using the speech details as leverage.
Technically, Tyler scored the investment first so he won. Conrad decided to void this win after he received an anonymous email (from Emily) with the sex tape of Tyler and Nolan attached. He stated that Grayson Global didn’t get their investors that way. Tyler was furious threatens Conrad with the truth about their involvement in the downing of Flight 197.
