Videos with Emma
Emma Wharton is Jonas's trait positive adopted sister. At first she resents Jonas for lying to her about the Order, but soon becomes close to him and the rest of TAAG, becoming a key member of the team.
Shortly after Emma met Jonas, it was revealed that she was trait positive and had been chosen to be the new ceremony girl. Jonas and Daniel quickly drugged her and took her to a remote location, and asked Sarah to bring Spencer's serum, to try to make her "Trait Negative." Although they told her a false story about meeting her parents for a vacation, she soon searched the Internet and discovered that her parents had been shot, about Bree’s death and the Hymn of One. She made a meager attempt to run away, but soon decided to stay, making Jonas promise to never lie to her again.
In the video "Shadow of Death", Emma, Jonas, and Daniel found themselves surrounded by the Order. In the midst of the ordeal, Sarah appeared . In the end, they made an escape when Emma charged at a Shadow, grabbed him and he mysteriously died. The remaining Order members fled , Emma and the rest departed without resistance. This led Jonas to believe that she had special powers capable of killing Order members.
The LaRezisto Affair
Soon after the confrontation, LaRezisto released a video about Emma. In the video a male voice tells Emma that she has a power, that she should help LaRezisto and that the Order fears her. The video ends with the male voice calling her "Angel of Death". Daniel reacted with his own video, expressing his mistrust for LaRezisto.
In the video "Decision Time", it is revealed that Emma began taking injections to convert her to trait negative. In the following video, Emma is shown boarding a train with her parents. Emma then posts a vlog telling us she wishes to live a normal life and announcing she will be taking the last of her injections.
After being gone only six days, Emma returns to Jonas and Daniel offering to help. Two days later, LaRezisto posted another video saying that she was a trait positive woman, named Claire, wanting to help Emma hone her powers. Amid much protest from Daniel and Sarah, Jonas takes Emma to a remote place in the woods to meet with Claire. He then allows her to take Emma even deeper into the woods alone, and a Watcher comes out of the woods and calls Claire a "LaRezisto Shadow" and says Emma is in danger.
With Jonas unable to find her, videos have been posted from LaRezisto in which Claire warns TAAG not to make any attempts to find them. They also include clips of Emma, apparently forced to say that she's fine. With TAAG doing all they could to find her, and Emma only in captivity for less than a month, Claire and Emma posted a video saying that she would indeed be doing the Ceremony and saying goodbye to Jonas, Daniel, and Sarah. Emma was eventually rescued by TAAG, however, her father told her she would not be bothered by Jonas again.
Becoming Trait Negative
While in hiding with her parents, Emma continued to post videos giving us updates on how she was doing, which included being sick and having strange dreams. After being silent for 15 days, Emma finally posted another video where she tells us that she is back at school and has changed her name, but can't reveal what it is. In the same video, she told us that while she was not completely well, but feeling about "seventy to seventy five percent" and had developed a rash that she called a butterfly rash. Days later, she was unable to sleep and posted a video expressing her concerns about the rash and her similarities to the girl in the VHS tape Jonas had posted.
A few days later, Jonas and Dr. Hart were disrupted by knocking at their door, afraid they had been found by Verdus, they began to flee, however, before they could, the hotel manager got into their room with Emma, who had made her way to Jonas. Jonas later explained that Emma had run away after showing her parents Gina's videos and they wouldn't listen to her. Emma and Dr. Hart seem to have bonded as they were seen sharing cookies and a lot of laughs. After Dr. Hart and Jonas were took Emma to a new undisclosed location, she posted a video sitting against a blank wall and telling us that her parents had put out an APB on her. Although she said very little, Jonas felt that her reference to fattigmann cookies tipped off Verdus and led them to ambush him and Dr. Hart. Days later, Emma posted another video expressing her concern for Sarah who had logged into the chat and said she belonged with the Hymn of One. Emma, along with Jonas and Daniel, then followed Jennie to Mexico and rescued Sarah.
The Ceremony and Aftermath
Surprisingly, it turned out Dr. Hart had been working with the Order all along, in an attempt to capture Emma. Emma was kidnapped, and Dr. Hart claimed he had no other choice. A few days later, however, he was a lot colder about it, explaining in detail how he had struck a deal with the Order in order to save Gina - if he got Emma for the Ceremony, Gina wouldn't have to do it. Fighting against time once more, on the day of the ceremony, the TAAG was able to find Emma at William Porter's house, but Lucy managed to escape with her and brought her to Porter's house block. The group managed to locate her there at well, but for an unknown reason, Daniel left without her and took Gina instead. The reason for this became apparent when Dr. Hart started the Ceremony - seconds after it began, the Elder's heart failed and Dr. Hart helped Emma to escape, possibly dying in the process.
After their escape from the hospital and the ceremony, it was thought that Emma may have been shot. This wasn't true, but she was losing blood at an alarming rate. Emma pulled through this experience and the group then went to stay in a cabin in the mountains where Emma sent a secret message the form of a BOGGLE board to her parents. She made contact with her parents and after saying a tearful goodbye to Jonas and the others and receiving financial help from Gina, took a train to meet them. Jonas, after initially acting out in anger, was able to get a hold on himself and send a message out to her telling her he understood and was proud of her.
On March 25th 2008, Jonas was confused when Carl mentioned that Jonas had been the one to push Emma away, however, the comment was eventually forgotten. Not long after this, according to Emma, the Order began closing in on her location. Fearing for their daughter's safety, Emma's parents decided to create a diversion so that Emma could escape to the safety of a secret bunker that had been used by the Resistance. They promised to contact her when it was safe, but they have not been heard from since.
Emma spent the next month in hiding. She spent her time reading, writing, and composing music on her guitar. On May 9th 2008, after avoiding Salinas, Jennie encountered Elizabeth Avery, who told her that Emma is going to be killed, and there's nothing anyone can do about it. Before anything else can be heard, Jonas pulls Jennie away. Injured from the incident, Elizabeth informs the group that Emma had been targeted for the Ceremony by an Elder, and was being tracked down by a Watcher. Jonas pleads for Emma to contact the group, and she sends an iPod with a coded message that would lead TAAG to her location. However, on the way, Elizabeth Avery breaks into their motel room and finds Emma's location on Jonas's computer. Jennie theorizes that Elizabeth is after Emma for her life-extending blood.
Once Elizabeth arrives, she forces open the door, to Emma's dismay, and tries to persuade Emma to come with her. However, a masked figure enters the room and fatally shoots Elizabeth, and Emma escapes through a trap door. Shortly after, TAAG alive and Sarah concludes that the Order captured Emma or killed her. Unable to accept Sarah's explanation, Jonas attempts to send Emma coordinates for a meeting place. Emma sees the video, and sets out on foot with no money and few supplies in order to get there. When she arrives, her new Watcher is nearby, and she and the others make a break for it.
To the Rescue... or Not?
Upon returning to the rented house, Emma says that the experiences she has had over the last few months have made her stronger, and she is ready to take on the Order. She gets her chance when Salinas captures Carl and threatens to kill him unless a member of TAAG surrenders themselves. Emma volunteers to go, pointing out that Salinas wouldn't harm her because she is trait positive and it would anger the Order. Jonas reluctantly allows her to go, and she breaks into the Sacred Spirit headquarters where Carl is being held. Upon locating him, she discovers that there is a security camera in the room, which she uses to force Salinas to cooperate, threatening to stay with Carl and getting herself killed. Salinas disengages the bomb, and tries unsuccessfully to capture them as they leave.
The next week, TAAG go into hiding at Big Bear Lake. Out of boredom, Sarah suggests that they throw a prom, as Emma and Gina have never gone to one. Emma is the only member of TAAG to support Sarah's decision to invite Carl. Jonas plans to ask Emma in order to protect her, but Jennie guilts him into going with her. In the end, Emma asks Daniel to be her date, only to have Gina join as well so that she won't feel left out. At the dance, Emma spends the majority of her time fooling around with Gina, and when Carl and Sarah arrive, she can't resist pointing out how goofy he looks, despite Sarah asking them not to. The dance becomes tense when Daniel hears noises coming from downstairs, and he, Emma, and Jonas investigate. Though they don't find anything, Emma unknowingly catches Lucy on camera sneaking into the house. After Gina is shot, Emma flees the cabin and heads toward the first public place she can find, pursued by her Watcher. After getting away from the Watcher, Emma heads towards Jennie's meeting place, and meets up with Jonas, Daniel, and Jennie.
After they successfully recover Gina's footage of the night from Salinas and Carl, Emma uploads it onto YouTube, revealing to the community that Gina had died. The next week, Emma posted a video mourning Gina, and sings a song she wrote for her. When TAAG captures Carl, Emma tries to guilt him into talking by showing him pictures of Gina's death. However, Emma is not pleased by Jonas's reaction to Carl's presence, and is extremely aggravated by his destructive search of the house for bugs from the Order. The stress gets to Emma, and she confesses that during her stay with her parents she had applied and been accepted to a prestigious boarding school outside the United States. The school with accept her for the Fall term if she enrolls in summer classes, and is surprised by Jonas's support of her decision to go, though she chalks it up to her being out of harm's way. Before she goes, she asks everyone to keep an eye on Jonas, as she is worried by his erratic behavior. She refuses to say goodbye, instead signing off with "I'll see you next time."
