Emori's brother, Otan, asks Jaha if he has really been to the City of Light. Jaha takes Otan off on a walk while Gideon sits and thinks his way into the City of Light. Emori tells Murphy that she and her brother were recruited by a female who comes to them in drones. They collect technology for her and bring it to Gideon on the island. Emori decides to go after the case while Gideon is sitting there in oblivion while he visits the City of Light. She tells Murphy they have other buyers and as she is about to take it, Gideon catches her and holds her by the throat.

She grabs the case and takes off back to the boat. Murphy follows after.
Emori and Murphy are at the boat, waiting for Otan to arrive. Murphy tries to open the case and Emori tells him she will split whatever is in there with him. Murphy comments how all she had to do was kill a guy and she thanks him for saving her life, kissing him on the cheek. She pries open the case with her knife, revealing technology with the infinity symbol, which is the same logo stamped on the chip Jaha gave to Murphy. Murphy realizes the case is housing A.L.I.E. and Jaha had brought her with them. Otan shows up and demands the case from Murphy, taking Emori hostage. Jaha arrives as Emori asks what is going on. Murphy says that Otan "ate the damned chip" that Jaha gave him and threatens to drop the case into the water unless they let Emori go.

Later,Murphy meet Emori at the old flamekeeper's room where she asks if him if he is ready to show her how much he missed her. The two enter and kiss but Emori recognizes some of the tech.

She asks him if he is sure that nobody will come in and Murphy says he is and the two have sex.
Later, Emori and Murphy are dressing and Emori asks how he pulled it off. Murphy explains that Ontari isn't really commander as she doesn't have the flame and she believes Murphy can help her become commander. Murphy is called for by Ontari's men and he tells Emori to stay put as he will return later. Later, Jaha reveals to Ontari that he knows she is not really commander and he can help her. Ontari is angry that Murphy told Jaha, but Murphy didn't tell Jaha anything. Emori then enters and it is revealed that she took the key to the City of Light and A.L.I.E. heard what Murphy said which is how Jaha knew. Murphy sadly looks at Emori when he realizes she is chipped. Ontari is confused as Murphy said he didn't know Emori. Emori tells Ontari that she is Murphy's lover.

They figure out how to destroy the backpack without irradiating Polis. A.L.I.E. tells Emori she needs to stall them until migration. Emori tells Murphy that it's not just A.L.I.E. in the backpack, it is everybody in the City of Light. If he destroys it then they will all be gone. Pike destroys it anyway and Murphy asks if Emori is okay but she just smiles and says they are too late. They cover Emori's face as they leave and when some chipped guards appear, the three of them are gone.
