What Did Everyone Think?

Regarding Emma Hollis:

I don't believe that she betrayed Frank at all.

Order of Events:

She is told by Peter Watts that her father's brain can be healed.

She is told this again.

Her pager goes off 3 times.

She goes to the retirement home & her father is gone. Emma seems confused, asks where he is, and is told that "SHE CALLED" to have him transferred back into her care. Emma seems very upset & helpless.

Then she's in front of a computer, and like Frank's virus program the computer suddenly shows the Ouroboros. But she seems slightly surprised again. She expected as much, but it does not appear that she was connecting to the Millennium Group, and instead rather that she was being connected remotely.

Then her dad's like, "Emma, you shouldn't have done it." But she DIDN'T DO IT! The group made her choice for her. Restoring her dad's mental facilities is all that is necessary to prevent her continued struggle against them. Basically, she was made a puppet & a slave by the group. THey preferred her to make that choice but the fact that she doesn't choose them has no bearing on the eventual outcome.

I think Emma's decision to go forward and tell Peter happens off screen. She calls him and tells him she can't go through with it, which I took as meaning she has re-thought it and now says no. The other way to look at is that the postion that Emma was in was similar to Frank's in "The Time is Now," the Group vaccinated Frank and therefore expected him to join. He feels guilty over having been saved because he stayed involved with the Group. Emma could have just told Peter to f*** off but she didn't. She hid her invlovement with him for many episodes from Frank. Her father is healed, which is good but she has sold everyone out. She failed to do what is right, which is eloquently explained by Frank in the V.O. to Jordan.
