The Porters rejoice over Jack's newborn son Carl, but the dangerous past of their father and Declan's rebellious behavior lead them to troubled waters. Amanda is publicly accepted as part of the Grayson family but still hides her demons from Jack. The secretive Ryan brothers buy the Stowaway to free Declan from theft charges, however, more deeply rooted motivations are revealed to be ruling their decision.

Nolan becomes attracted to the clever Padma Lahari, whom he appoints as CFO of his company, but Lahari has a secret agenda of her own. Finally, a man from Emily's past, Aiden Mathis, re-enters her life and becomes a partner in her plans for revenge.

Victoria thanks him and says that Jack was responsible for Emily and Daniel's breakup last summer. Victoria confronts Allison Stoddard about her encounter with Conrad. Allison says that they are meeting because she is sabotaging her husband's campaign, because he has a serious heart condition and may not survive another term as governor. Aiden asks Nolan to help him make Emily forfeit her quest for vengeance, saying that he didn't find "closure"; his quest for his sister's murderer only made him suffer and this vendetta will make Emily suffer too. He asks Nolan to hack the Amanda Clarke Foundation bank account and withdraw all the money from it while he still has access to it as treasurer of the foundation, thus withdrawing all the Graysons' fortune.

The newspapers reveal Allison and Victoria's conversation about Mark Stoddard, leading Conrad's campaign to almost certain victory. Emily finds out about Aiden and Nolan hacking the Foundation's bank account and tries to convince them to stop the transfer, unsuccessfully.

The blackout of Manhattan is in full effect. Charlotte has just told Daniel that she is pregnant, Conrad is getting his campaign ready for victory, and Victoria is at the Stowaway with Jack (Carl is said to be out of town with his grandmother). Jack tells Victoria his whole plan for getting revenge. Victoria tells Conrad that Jack and Ashley have been working against him. Emily and Nolan find Takeda's body, and Emily realizes that it was Aiden who killed him. Aiden tells Emily that Takeda has been using her all along; Takeda's fiancée was on Flight 197. Regina and Declan are trapped in a bank and Declan realizes that Regina is actually in love with Charlotte. Regina plants money in Declan's coat and bruises herself to show Charlotte later that Declan is wrong for her. Victoria finds out that Charlotte is pregnant with Declan's baby. As Daniel works feverishly to turn Aiden in to the authorities, Emily and Nolan become aware of an assassin, Gregor Hoffman, who has been hired by Conrad to bomb Grayson Global. This is a plot to show his voters how he reacts in a disaster. Conrad sends Jack a message from Ashley's phone, telling him that he found Emily's computer that contains incriminating information on the Graysons, and where it is - Grayson Global. Emily, who disposed of the laptop herself, realizes it's a trap and rushes to Grayson Global to save Jack, knowing the bomb will go off when he arrives. As Emily tries to intercept Jack, Conrad is speaking to his supporters, surrounded by Daniel and Victoria. Everyone in Manhattan suddenly receives a text message declaring "Long Live David Clarke". Then the bomb goes off.After the blast, Emily rushes into the Grayson Global building to save Jack; she sees a man lying on the ground, but is rushed out by firefighters before she can see who it is. It is confirmed to not be Jack as, across town, he shows up at NolCorp and asks Nolan how he knew about the bomb. Conrad takes the lead in rescue efforts, making him look good in front of the cameras. It is revealed Declan was the one injured in the blast, and is now in hospital. Jack, who agrees to pretend to be dead for the time being, sneaks into the hospital in a stolen uniform without being noticed, and speaks with his brother. Declan insists he is fine, although he will need heart surgery, so he cannot leave. Declan also tells Jack that Charlotte is pregnant with his baby. Nolan visits Declan and remains while he has surgery. Jack comes back to find Nolan sitting in Declan's room with an empty bed. He shows Jack a video Declan made of Declan saying goodbye. Declan is dead. Aiden, knowing he will be held responsible for the Manhattan blackout, flees New York, but the media reports Aiden, now a terrorist suspect, has been captured by the FBI attempting to cross the border to Canada. Later, all charges are dropped and Aiden is released, with federal authorities going after Nolan instead. Nolan suffers the same fate as David Clarke: he is arrested by the FBI, who storm his office on charges of treason against the United States. The feds don't believe his claims of innocence because of his recorded friendship with Clarke, he learns the Falcon has denied everything and claimed he was behind the blackout, and finally a video is shown of deceased Padma Lahari. Padma, clearly forced to speak by the Initiative, declares Nolan is the "blind disciple" of David Clarke, and her lover was and is an anarchist and genius believing his judgment should affect the world. She finishes by stating "Nolan is Americon Initiative" (or a terrorist mastermind like Clarke). Nolan realizes he has been blamed for the Initiative's actions, which was their plan from the start. Daniel and Victoria each individually turn on Conrad; the former when he finds out that Conrad knew about the bomb beforehand, and the latter when she learns that Conrad joined "The Initiative" earlier that year. He had become a member of a private group of businesspeople who profited from these attacks, all for the sake of his own fortunes and family. The heartbreaking death of his brother leaves Jack frantic and unsure of his own sanity; deciding he has nothing left to lose, he goes to Grayson Manor and steals a gun. Running into Victoria, he threatens her with it, knowing she betrayed him. He decides, instead, that it is a worse punishment to make her live with all the guilt she has. Charlotte returns to recover from the bombing, and Victoria comforts her, deciding against telling her about Declan's death for the time being. Jack goes to Conrad's speech, with it now official he won the election and he is Governor-Elect of New York State. Emily rushes to find Jack before he kills Conrad. Daniel shows up at Emily's house where he finds Aiden. The two men fight and Aiden defeats his former boss, finishing by crashing him into Emily's desk. Aiden says he’s giving Daniel a pass to live, and tells Daniel to let Emily go. Daniel, lying on the floor and overcome with rage, notices he has landed within a foot of Emily's gun, which has spilled onto the floor with him. Daniel comes to Conrad's speech with blood on his shirt sleeve, suggesting that he killed Aiden with Emily's gun - Aiden is not seen again afterwards. Victoria, alone with her guilt, is sitting at home watching Conrad's victory speech, when her door bell rings. She goes to answer it and it is Patrick. Emily locates Jack. She rushes up the stairs to where he has the gun pointed at Conrad, who makes a point of praising Declan in his speech, using it as capital for his popularity. Emily says that he can't do this; Jack says this has nothing to do with her. She proclaims that it has everything to do with her. Emily, forced to evaluate her quest for revenge after so many heartbreaking deaths, steps in front of the gun and says that she should have left him out of "all this" (her revenge). She begs Jack to really look at her and announces to him that she is Amanda Clarke.
