When Emily was nine, her father was framed for a horrific crime by the people he trusted most and was sentenced to life in prison. Emily never saw her father again and spent her childhood consumed by loss, betrayal and rage. Seventeen years later she returned to the Hamptons, determined to take down every person involved in the conspiracy against her father. Lying squarely in her crosshairs are the Graysons, led by matriarch and renowned socialite Victoria Grayson (Madeleine Stowe) and shrewd business tycoon Conrad Grayson (Henry Czerny). Carefully and methodically, Emily chipped away at the foundation of this once powerful and untouchable family, using their blue-blooded son, Daniel (Josh Bowman), as a pawn in her intricate plan. Grayson daughter Charlotte (Christa B. Allen) also became a casualty after discovering she is not who she thought she was, but rather the product of an affair of Victoria's. Amidst all this unraveling, Emily's former friend, Ashley Davenport (Ashley Madekwe), strategically aligned herself with the Graysons, deviously climbing up the social ladder.
In Montauk, Emily's childhood love, Jack Porter (Nick Wechsler), took ownership of the Stowaway Tavern and continues to try to be a father figure to his kid brother, Declan (Connor Paolo). His undeniable draw to Emily, though, has inadvertently put him into harm's way. As for Emily herself, in these moments when her past starts to catch up to her and her heart clouds her focus, she has Nolan Ross (Gabriel Mann) to turn to -- one of the very few people who knows the truth and who is significantly linked to her past, her present and her secret. She will need his help more than ever as she continues her quest for vengeance against the Graysons, who grow only more dogged and dangerous when threatened, willing to do anything to keep their house from crumbling.
With the ante even higher and the conspiracy even larger, what will Emily's next move be? And can she keep her heart from getting in the way of her resolve to avenge her father?
