(Fairwinds) Paul opens up the envelope with the DNA results and is a little surprised when the DNA results state that Mick’s DNA matches that of James Stenbeck.

Paul vows to find a way to stop James latest plan before he can hurt the people that he loves.

(Police Station) Mick tells Margo to ignore the young face and voice and to go with her gut and believe that he is James because she knows its true. Margo tells Mick that she knew James very well and that is why she knows he isn’t James Stenbeck. Mick tells Margo that she has to let him go because she has no proof of the charges against him. Margo tells Mick that she can’t let him go until a judge tells her to let him go. Margo leaves Mick in the interrogation room and goes back to her office. Mick gets a headache and talks to himself as if he has a split personality and tells James to let him go because the only thing he wants is a life with Alison.
