Nolan confronts Emily about her true identity and pledges to
help her take down the Hampton elite who betrayed her father.
"Remember I witnessed first hand what these people did to your father..."
Emily's dad invested time and money in Nolan when he was first starting out, and was the one person who believed in him.
"When I met your dad I'd already been laughed out of every boardroom in New York. I was an MIT misfit with a vision nobody got but him. The only reason Nolcorp exists is because your father gave me cash from his personal account to develop it. And that's because he believed in me."
Nolcorp is a Fortune 500 company which pushes the boundaries of cellular technology. Its success has made Nolan one of the richest men in the world. In business circles he's known for a brazen attitude and a take-no-prisoners leadership style.
It turns out Nolan met teenage Emily outside the gates when she was released from Juvie .
He told her that her father had died six weeks ago; that she now owned a 49% share in Nolan's company; and passed on David's infinity box which contained details of all the people who betrayed him.
