At Spencer Publications, Hope demands to know why Justin has Thomas’ phone. Justin covers that Thomas came by for a follow-up on the feature in Eye on Fashion and left his phone. He says Thomas told him he was heading out of town and would stop by to get it, but he didn’t arrive. Hope’s stunned — Thomas never told her he was going out of town. She can’t imagine him not giving her a heads-up. Justin tells her he has to get back to work and assures her where Liam’s concerned, he’s doing everything he can to make sure justice is served.
