As Emily and Victoria grieve, David springs into action to protect his loved ones.
Daniel was fatally shot by Kate, shielding Emily, who dragged her down in a fatal fall. David warns her mob father Malcolm Black won't rest until everybody present and their loved-ones are savagely slaughtered, so Jack and Nolan work out how to stage Daniel being shot in self-defense by Emily, while David dumps the corpse. Victoria plays along reluctantly, rather then joining Margaux's quest for vengeance except by banning Emily from the funeral, but despite Ben's professional interest, Emily is officially cleared. Nolan thinks he erased all clues while David set up arrival cartel in Miami, but his guest Louise snooped in Kate's evacuated belongings, for Victoria. Malcolm arrives posing as FBI agent and kills police chief Edward Alvarez who found him out.
