Mimi and Max arrive at Victor's place. Victor tells the two he has known about Philip's injuries the whole time. Mimi confronts Victor. "You lied to Belle and Shawn." He asks them to lie for him as it's crucial to Philip's safety. He lies that Philip is being held in a safe house in an undisclosed location - by the CIA! He was held in a private, covert operation overseas and is being debriefed. He tells them, "I would hate for anything to happen to you two, because of information I shared with you." It would be dangerous if they mentioned any of this to anyone, he lies. Victor thanks them for being good friends to Philip, and once outside, Max tells Mimi, "Everything he said was a lie!" He is certain that Victor wouldn't have told them as much as he did if Philip was really involved with the CIA. They continue to search for Philip.
Inside, Victor tells Philip "I assume you heard. Let's hope they stay out of it."
At Hudson Street Diner, Belle cries when she sees the item that Bo found in the street. Jessie Faraday walks in (the man who made a fuss over Claire yesterday) and Bo grabs him. Roman pulls his gun and they take him outside to question him. Jessie tells them that he came back to the diner to see how Belle was, because he was concerned for Claire. Hope worries that Shawn won't get to see his daughter again. She comments that he's on his way over. Roman wonders why nobody has contacted them with a ransom note, and Victor offers $50,000 to whoever can bring Claire back. Shawn arrives, fuming. "How could you let this happen?" he asks Belle. Sami runs into the diner, and hugs Belle to her. Victor asks Shawn to stay with Belle, but Shawn doesn't think she wants him around. Shawn apologizes to Belle for what he said to her.
The red-haired woman has Claire in her car. She tells Claire she's a good little girl and explains to Claire that she once had a daughter but had to give her up when she was sent to jail. She takes a phone call. "Don't worry. I know what to do." She promises.
Later, at Hudson Street Diner, Sami and Shawn are interrupted by Roman, who is carrying Claire. He is followed by the red-haired lady - in cuffs! The lady lies when she explains that she found Claire in her car and was bringing her back to the diner. The police believe her story and agree to let her go.
The red-haired lady shows up at Victor's mansion to receive her payoff. He tells her to get out of town and never return, so she leaves.
Victor goes in to see Philip. He tells him that their plan to take Claire away from Belle is working.
At the penthouse, Belle speaks to Victor on the phone. She asks that he meet her at the Hudson Street Diner. He agrees to meet with her and hangs up as Lucas arrives. Victor apologizes for calling him there on his vacation, but asks him to run Titan while he's out of town! Lucas is surprised but happy to do so, and agrees to get the company jet on standby in a week. He and another passenger (Andrew Spivey) are off to Montreal. Lucas agrees to complete confidentiality. Lucas leaves and Victor and tells Philip they are waiting on a new face for him, and afterwards he can get his life on track. Victor makes a phone call to Belle at the diner.
Belle arrives at the Hudson Street Diner with Claire. She orders lunch and tells Claire that her great grandpa is coming to visit her! A man comes over to see Claire, and makes a fuss over how cute she is. After he leaves, a red-haired woman is shown sitting behind Belle, looking at Claire suspiciously. Victor calls the diner and asks for Belle. Belle goes to the counter to take his call, thinking Claire will be fine at the table alone. Victor apologizes that he is running late; explains he couldn't get her on her cell phone and this is why he is calling the diner. He shares the news that he wants to give Claire a quarter of a million dollars in trust for Christmas! Belle is dumfounded. She doesn't understand why he'd want to give Claire the money, but he explains he is her Great Grandfather and has the money to give. After the two hang up, Belle turns to go back to Claire but she is nowhere to be found! The waitress and Belle search for Claire, frantically, and when they don't find her they call the police.
Dr Weinstein (plastic surgeon from Montreal) shows up to the mansion. Victor thanks him for coming, but the plastic surgeon tells him that he doesn't do vanity surgery. Victor isn't deterred. He tells the doctor that Philip is a war hero, who lost his leg but was determined to serve again. He shares that Philip went back to war and when his jeep was bombed, it left him disfigured beyond recognition. He'll require a "face transplant"!
Back at Victor's mansion, the doctor prepares to remove Philip's bandages, as Victor takes a call from the journalist who saw Mimi and Max. He is angered. "Nobody can know where Philip is," he spouts. Dr. Weinstein thinks he may be able to help Philip, but can't guarantee anything. It's expensive, he goes on to say. Once he finds a donor, he'll transfer Philip to Quebec and is obviously happy to receive a huge check from Victor, who says, this is the first installment. "I promised my son I'd get him his life back, and I'll do whatever it takes," he pledges.
At the mansion, Philip is out of bed, and in some pain, so Victor offers to help him back to bed. Phil looks at a picture of Claire, and Victor tells him, "I know Claire is the only one who makes you feel better." then a nurse gives Philip pain medication. He promises to Philip he won't let him down again.
At the mansion, Victor and Lucas discuss business, and he asks Lucas to pick up a Dr Hubert Weinstein, at the airport for him. Lucas is puzzled but accepts, then asks for time off to take Will on a ski trip. Victor is okay with this, and there comes a knock at the door. Kate comes into the mansion, as Lucas is leaving. She shows him the San Diego Standard. She shows him a photo of the soldiers from the marines, in particular, she points to a photo of a guy in the back row, saying "Tell me that is not our son!"
