Victor meets Philip at Chez Rouge and tells him that he promised he'd handle this situation. Philip will. He has good people working on this. Victor thinks Paul turned state's evidence already. He wants the situation contained. Philip asks for Victor to trust him. When Morgan comes into the room and looks at him with a twinkle in her eye, Victor goes nuts. "What was that? Are you sleeping with Paul's daughter?" Philip reminds him of the old saying. "Keep your friends close and your enemies closer!" Morgan comes to meet Victor and asks Philip what's up. Philip wanted to take her mind off of her father and offers to buy her a drink. Victor tells Morgan he hopes there is good news regarding her father soon and the pair leaves Victor. Morgan asks what Philip really wants! He accuses her of being suspicious and she reminds him he has a girlfriend. He says this wasn't a romantic gesture. He wants to be her friend, but admits he's attracted to her. She thinks he wants to find her father and that's why he's attracted to her. Philip denies it and wants to leave. He tells her his father is an integral part of the Kiriakis /DiMera war, but that's not why he called her. He wanted to cheer her up.
Morgan freaks out when Chloe tells everyone that Paul smelled of gasoline when she found him at the pier, the night of the fire at John's warehouse. Roman asks why Chloe would lie. Morgan thinks she's covering for someone. Philip has no ideas either and they wonder if it was John Black. Roman says there is no evidence. He takes Chloe aside and asks her to start at the beginning and tell him everything.
At the pub, Max rants about Trent to Stephanie and tells her that his book is a load of rubbish and that Trent is a ruthless, heartless bastard. Steve overhears this and tells him he'll be making a big mistake. Max is confused but Steve tells Max that he doesn't know Trent. He wants him to get the truth first, before he spouts off. Kayla agrees with Steve but Max is too angry to listen.
Roman questions Chloe about meeting Paul Hollingsworth. Morgan interrupts and tries to stop Chloe from talking. She accuses Chloe of being jealous after finding Philip kissing Morgan. Chloe denies it. When Roman asks Chloe what Paul was wearing that night, she goes blank. She wonders what difference it makes and when he asks her to try, she asks for a glass of water. Once he's gone, and calls Salem PD to get an APB on Paul, Chloe text messages Lucas to ask what Paul was wearing the night he saw him.
Meanwhile, at the DiMera mansion, Lucas worries whether Chloe got his last text.
At the pub, Philip tries to get Morgan to relax, but her dad's missing and her mother doesn't care. She worries that John's hunting her father. Philip will make sure John pays, if he finds out he's behind this. Morgan is thankful and they kiss.
At the pub, Steve and Kayla and Roman discuss the John Black mess. Stephanie and Max come downstairs and Steve asks to talk to Max. The two men go off while Stephanie sits with Roman and Kayla. Morgan rushes in and interrupts, telling Roman that she thinks her father is missing. She saw him last night and he said he'd call. It's not like him to not call her back. Roman says it's too soon and they need to wait 24 hours. Morgan freaks out. She tells them that he knew his life was in danger. Chloe and Philip arrive and Chloe has news about her father. She couldn't keep it to herself, she says but saw him on the pier, the night of the fire. He smelled of gasoline, say Chloe.
Steve tells Max he's upset that Max kept secrets from his daughter. Max has been keeping a secret, he says and tells him it's because of his father. He doesn't want to be anything like him. He's back in Salem. Steve reminds Max that his father was just as bad as Max's and Max admits he may know what he's going through. He feels awful for picking fights and lying to Stephanie. Steve understands. It doesn't excuse things but since Max and Stephanie love each other, he has nothing to lose by opening up. Max will soon, he says and accepts Steve's offer of help, if he ever needs it.
At the Pub, Hope tells Bo that she still can't believe Phillip would have had anything to do with the fire. Bo notes that he is the number one suspect, like it or not. At that moment, Chelsea comes in and surprises them by asking to speak to Hope alone! Nearby, Morgan and Chloe have another little run-in as Chloe thinks back to the kiss on the dock. As Hope and Chelsea go off to talk, Caroline approaches Bo and says she gave Max the morning off 'under the circumstances'. Bo asks what is going on, but Caroline won't tell him because Max told her in confidence. Nearby, Chelsea asks to borrow a pair of earrings from Hope and admits that she has a date. She gets a very disapproving look from Hope, however, when she asks to keep it a secret from her dad! Caroline and Bo watch, and he tells his mom that he has waited a long time for Hope and Chelsea to have a mother/daughter moment. Hope asks Chelsea why she doesn't want her father to know about her date. Chelsea admits that it's Daniel. Hope tells her she is very concerned about the age difference. Chelsea asks if she is going to back her, and Hope sighs. She then asks Chelsea if he asked her out, which Chelsea confirms. Hope is glad of that, and reluctantly agrees to wait to mention it to Bo. She says there is one condition - if there is going to be a second date, they have to tell him!
Chelsea and Morgan are working out at the gym. Morgan asks her what she's up to that night, and Chloe tells her she has plans. Morgan says, "Oh!" Chelsea admits that Daniel - Dr. Jonas - has finally asked her out. Morgan is wary and asks if Chelsea would actually do anything with him on the first date. Chelsea says that you never know - a girl can dream! Morgan isn't as enthusiastic, however, and an irritated Chelsea asks why she can't just be happy for her?! When Morgan questions the age difference between Chelsea and Daniel, Chelsea orders her to stop - she wouldn't turn down a date with Johnny Depp would she?!
Stephanie joins Chelsea and Morgan at the gym. As she is listing off her complaints and frustrations with Max, Chelsea's phone rings. She sees it is Daniel, but misses the call. The girls are amused when she immediately calls him back! He confirms their date, and Chelsea triumphantly turns back to Morgan and Stephanie saying, "Nine o'clock at Chez Rouge!" Morgan, however, is still disapproving. She asks what Chelsea's father would think of this date, and admits to the girls that her own father had to leave. She is upset but assures them that he'll be back.
Stephanie, Morgan, and Chelsea arrive at the Brady Pub, passing Dean Robbins as they go inside. Morgan is disappointed to see that Chloe is at the Pub, calling her a 'harlot'. Stephanie spots Caroline and asks if Max talked to her, and is frustrated when she says he didn't. Max comes downstairs and Stephanie again presses him to tell his mother the truth. Max sighs and approaches Caroline, asking if she's got a minute. "It's about my biological father." He tells her about Dean Robbins and she thanks him for confiding in her. Nearby, Chloe and Morgan have a run-in, which ends with Morgan saying to Chloe, "You must be really threatened by me, and you know what? You should be!"
On the docks, Morgan continues to kiss Phillip, who protests that they need to stop. "This isn't right." Just then, Chloe arrives and spots them! She approaches and wastes no time in starting to make a scene, in spite of Phillip's protests! Chloe is extremely caustic and rude to Morgan and Phillip, and Morgan says the kiss was a mistake and she's leaving. Phillip tells Chloe, "Enough!" Morgan tells Chloe that Phillip has a heart of gold and he was helping her father. She notes that obviously Chloe and Phillip have some things they need to talk about, and she leaves. Chloe tells Phillip she is sorry, it wasn't supposed to happen, but she's started to develop feelings for him. He says he cares about her too, and he didn't want to make her angry or jealous. Chloe retorts, "That's nice, but you don't have the same feelings for me that I have for you!" Amused, Phillip tells the defensive Chloe that she's the only one he wants. Just then he takes a call and says into the phone, "Just make sure he doesn't talk. The police already suspect our connection." He turns back to Chloe and suggests that they carry on the conversation at her place. She agrees, but warns that they'll only be talking!
