John Murphy first met Emori in Rubicon while searching for the City of Light in the Dead Zone.

Throughout the SeriesEdit

In Rubicon, Murphy is in the Dead Zone with Thelonious Jaha and a few other Sky People trying to find the City of Light. They noticed an abandoned cart and go over to investigate it. A female Grounder jumps out and threatens them with a knife. Jaha tells her that they are looking for the City of Light. She tells them that her name is Emori and that she and her brother were on the way to the City of Light when they were attacked and he was killed. She offers to show them the way if they pull her cart. Murphy offers her some water and she thanks him.

On the way, Murphy asks her why she is going to the City of Light. Emori tells him she was kicked out of her clan for having a deformity and shows him her hand. He tells her that she should not cover it up. He also tells her that he killed two people, but had his reasons for doing so.

After walking for a short while, a Grounder appears on horseback and aims a rocket launcher at the group. Emori puts a knife to Murphy's throat and tells everyone to put their supplies in the cart or they will die. Jaha tries to convince her that they can work together, but Emori tells her no. She whispers something into Murphy's ear before knocking him out.

In Wanheda (Part 1), Murphy is on the shore of the island when a boat horn is heard in the distance. Thelonious Jaha tries to convince Murphy to come with him but he refuses. When the boat arrives Emori is driving it. She calls out to Murphy, he smiles and he asks her who she stole the boat from. After refusing to leave with Jaha, Murphy eventually gets on the boat.

In Wanheda (Part 2), Murphy asks Emori what she is doing there. She tells him that she and her brother were recruited by a woman who comes to them in drones. They collect technology for her and bring it to Gideon on the island. Later, while Emori and Murphy wait for her brother Otan to return with Jaha, she tries to still the gray case from Gideon because she has other buyers. As she reaches for the case, Gideon opens his eyes and grabs her by the throat. Murphy tries to help her but Gideon's grip is too strong. Emori grabs a knife from her waistband and stabs him in the neck, killing him. She grabs the case and runs towards the boat with Murphy following behind her.

As they wait for Otan to arrive, Emori tries to open the case and tells Murphy that she will split whatever is in there with him. She kisses him on the cheek for trying to save her earlier. She is able to pry the case open and inside they find technology with the infinity symbol on it. Murphy realizes that the case houses A.L.I.E. and Jaha had brought her with them. Later, Otan shows up and Emori asks him why he's not wearing the cover for his face. He demands Murphy gives him the case and grabs his sister and holds a knife to her throat. Jaha arrives and tells Murphy to hand him the case. Murphy holds the case over the water and tells him to let Emori go first or he'll drop it. Jaha tells Otan to release Emori. Murphy throws the case into the water and boards the boat with Emori while Jaha and Otan run to retrieve the case.

In Hakeldama, Emori has now recruited Murphy into the con game she had with her brother Otan. After their latest heist, Emori expresses her desire to search for her brother, but Murphy tells her that's it's a bad idea. Later, during another con, Murphy is lying in the road as bait, while Emori hides in the trees. Three Grounder warriors from Polis appear. They begin to search Murphy and quickly realize that he is the thief they have been looking for. They question him regarding Emori's whereabouts but Murphy's tells them that he is alone. One of the warriors search his bag, while another prepares to kill him. Suddenly, the Grounder searching the bag stops the other from killing him when he finds the blue pill Jaha gave to Murphy. He tells the other warrior that the pill contains “the sacred symbol”. They arrest Murphy and take him to Polis.

In Fallen, a chained Murphy watches as Ontari undresses. She proposes for them to have sex. Murphy refuses, telling her that he can't because there's someone else: Emori. Ontari indirectly threatens his life while comparing herself to Emori. Murphy ends up giving in and it is assumed that they have sex.

In Demons, Murphy finds Emori in Polis. They reunite and head to a room, where they sleep together. Murphy then tells Emori that Ontari isn't the real Grounder Commander. Jaha later appears in Polis, and he claims to know that Ontari isn't the real Commander. He then reveals that Murphy told him this knowledge, leading to him discovering that Emori has taken the City of Light chip. Murphy is then locked up, as Jaha persuades Ontari to take the chip as well.

In Red Sky at Morning, A.L.I.E. and Jaha request Emori's help to prevent Murphy from destroying Jaha's backpack that was being used as a mobile transportation unit for A.L.I.E. Emori enters and tells Murphy that the backpack contains a nuclear fuel cell which, if destroyed, will irradiate the entire city causing Murphy to stop and work more carefully to destroy it. A.L.I.E. uses Emori to stall Murphy and prevent him from destroying the backpack until her migration is completed. Emori warns Murphy that if he destroys the City of Light then all of its residents will be gone including her causing him to stop. Pike destroys the backpack instead and Murphy runs to Emori to ensure she is okay and she tells him he is too late. Murphy then covers her face and leaves her to prevent her from following them.

In Perverse Instantiation (Part 1), Murphy mentions to Bellamy that he is working to save somebody that he loves (Emori) just like Bellamy.

In Perverse Instantiation (Part 2), Emori is part of the group under A.L.I.E's control sent to prevent Clarke from destroying the city of light. When the City of Light has been destroyed, Emori like the other residences regains her control and freedom. Emori and Murphy reunite and hug as she apologizes to him.

In God Complex, Murphy did everything he could to protect Emori from being tested on. When they were tied up, Emori seemed to accept her fate and tried to persuade Murphy to live. She begged him to "Survive, please", showing her feeling for him. When Miller went to drug her, the last thing she did was look at Murphy. Murphy repeatedly begged for Emori's life, stating that he loves her and he will kill anyone who hurts her. When she is taken and the doors close, he let out a painful yell of anguish.
