In the first instalment of the hit US drama, Emily Thorne is the newest arrival in the affluent society of the Hamptons. She appears to be a friendly and sophisticated 'girl next door', but has a dark family history and is not what she seems.
Seventeen years ago, her father was framed for a crime he didn't commit by neighbours he trusted, and sentenced to life in prison. Emily never saw him again and spent her childhood consumed by rage, loss and betrayal.
Now she's returning under an assumed identity with just one goal - revenge - and every social overture she makes is a carefully planned chip at the foundation of her sworn enemies.
Emily rents the seaside home she once shared with her father and, with the help of her only friend, events planner Ashley, sets her sites on her first target and puts her carefully organised plan in motion.
Her focus wavers when she meets Jack, a friendly face from the past, makes a new romantic connection with the son of her sworn enemy, and is pushed into an uneasy alliance with the only person who knows her secret.
