Aiden Mathis: Are condolences or congratulations in order?
Emily Thorne: [opening voiceover] If we choose to, we can live in a world of comforting illusion. We can allow ourselves to be deceived by false realities... or we can use them to hide our true intentions.
Victoria Grayson: And here I thought you were offering me a way out of this.
Conrad Grayson: Never.
Emily Thorne: [closing voiceover] To successfully create illusion, the first thing you need is trust. But to perfect an illusion, the false reality must appear as authentic as the one it hides. Careful attention must be paid to every detail. The slightest of imperfections can, like a pin to a balloon, burst the illusion. And the truth behind the illusion becomes revealed.
Victoria Grayson: They said it would take an act of Congress to get you out on bail tonight.
Conrad Grayson: No, no. No, all it really took was the Initiative.
Victoria Grayson: What did you promise them?
Conrad Grayson: I don't think I'll know until it's too late.
