Emily promised that she wouldn’t let anything separate them. That changed when she burned down their house. In the present day, Emily reveals to Aiden the news about her foster brother showing up at the cemetery. She hasn’t seen him in 14 years. She can’t help but wonder why he’s returned and what he wants.
Later at the Stowaway, Emily runs into Eli. After some small talk, he drops the bomb that he knows her true identity. Emily offers him money to leave town. She also says she can wipe away his criminal past. Eli waits until he has his past wiped clean and the check in hand before reneging on the deal.
