Billie comes back into the office and proclaims that everyone should be thanking Patrick instead of blaming him. Bo assumes that Billie is merely defending Patrick but Billie insists that Patrick is innocent and she can prove it.
Sami wants to know how Lucas thinks he can find Stan. Lucas explains that since he used to work for Tony, he has a high level clearance and can tap into the Dimera mainframe. Sami cautions against it for fear that Tony will come after Lucas but Lucas claims to not be afraid of Tony, even believing that the success of finding Stan will be worth any wrath from Tony.

Lucas uses the keyboard to work his way further into the mainframe but is shocked when Sami pulls the connection.
Hope at first tries to convince Billie that Patrick is guilty but Billie explains that wiring Tonys boat for explosives and knocking Bo out was all part of Patricks plan that he sent to Billie via her PDA while she was out alone in the jungle. Hope questions why Patrick didnt tell either Billie or Bo in advance and Billie explains that Patrick knew neither of them would go for it. Bo refuses to believe it but both Billie and Patrick, having been relieved of his gag by Hope, insist it to be true. Bo turns to Tony for confirmation but Tony will only answer ominously.

Jack warns Chelsea that it past curfew but Chelsea insists that since she is 18, she doesnt need to follow a curfew. Jack points out that while Billie is out of town, Chelsea chose to stay under his roof, which means she must follow his rules.

Bo agrees and tells Billie not to touch the computer. Billie ignores him and aims her gun at Tony to make him give her the password. Tony relays the password, a random sequence of letters and numbers and Billie types it in. It prompts a full file uploading and Hope rushes over to determine that all the files are being linked to another location such as a satellite and are simultaneously being deleted from Tonys computer.
