Emily tells Jason of Lukes plan to free Nikolas. She tells him she wants that but admits that when her husband is free, he will want everything the way it was. And that is what scares her. She is not the same person. And that is why she asked him for a divorce. He needs to be free. He asks her if Nikolas has a vote in whether to stay together. She tells him that if Nikolas knew about the rape, hed stay with her out of loyalty. And she admits to Jason that shes trying to keep everything together with work and school.

Luke asks her how shes going to pull that off, when Nikolas is rotting in prison for a murder that didnt even happen.
