[Forum] RE: em dash, capitalization?
Hi, and welcome to the forum! To address the question, I really don't think the dash is needed in that last quotation. Were it mine to edit, I would just delete any that are used that way. (You do, of course, want the dash in that first one.)

I suggest you read this thread from four years ago. https://www.chicagomanualofstyle.org/forum.html?php=showthread&tid=3489&pid=24092 This is really an exact repeat of that conversation with exactly the same examples and arguments offered. There is no need to discuss this again.
