In the lab, Thomas presses Vinny to prove that he didn’t mess with the paternity test. He demands he log in and show him; Vinny had the know-how and access to alter the test results. Did he do it? When Vinny remains silent, Thomas barks, “Answer me!” Vinny insists paternity results don’t lie. Thomas wants to believe him but a lot of people would be affected if he changed the test results. Vinny urges Thomas to stop getting worked up. “Everything’s cool, I promise.” Thomas smirks; Vinny’s been talking his way out of things since they were kids. Vinny tells him his line of questioning is a dead end and wants to put it all behind them. He shows Thomas the door, but reminds him if Hope does leave Liam, he deserves to be with her.
