Kate and Victor arrive in the doorway and listen as Philip tells Claire about how he and Belle used to play together as kids. Kate and Victor step away from the door to talk about telling Philip the truth. Kate continues to advocate for never telling Philip that Claire isnt his daughter. Kate and Victor watch Philip dote on Claire through the window. Victor threatens to still call Roman and asks Kate if she is really that coldhearted not to care about risking Shawns life. Kate insists that shes not coldhearted because she did change the records back. Victor points out that Kate only did so because she got caught. Kate wants to drop the issue and focus on Philip but Victor refuses because the other affected party is his grandson, Shawn. Victor brings up the theory that Philip and Belles love may not last once they find out the truth. Kate tries to rationale not telling the truth but Victor insists that Philip must know the truth. As Victor is saying this, Philip comes out of the room and asks what he needs to know the truth about. Victor defers the question to Kate by saying that she has something to tell him about Claire. Philip fears that its something Lexie told her but Kate claims it isnt and tries to put it off for later. Philip demands to know what it is now and Kate claims that Victor is upset over her giving the nurses extra cash under the table to ensure better care for Claire. Philip agrees with Victor that the supposed action was wrong and Kate pretends to feel outnumbered. Victor insists that Kate has something more to tell Philip but Claires monitor going off interrupts them. The nurse notes that Claires blood pressure is high and pages Lexie. Philip returns to Claires side. Nurse Jennifer receives word that Lexie is on her way. Philip asks about Claires blood pressure and Nurse Jennifer explains that its because of the medication they have to give Claire that could be damaging to her kidneys. Philip is relieved when Nurse Jennifer notes that Claires blood pressure is going back down. Nurse Jennifer leaves to check on Claires labs. Victor consoles a now crying Philip who fears he is only sitting here watching Claire die. Kate pulls Victor aside to warn that if shes made to tell the truth, itll kill Philip. Nurse Jennifer returns and informs them that Lexie is busy with another patient right now but the labs show that Claires kidneys arent normal but arent to the point of needing extra treatment right now. Nurse Jennifer assures Philip that they are doing everything they can to help Claire. Nurse Jennifer leaves. Philip thanks Victor and Kate for being there together and has them stay with Claire while he leaves to find Belle. Victor glares at Kate and insists that Philip be told the truth. Kate tries to convince Victor that they shouldnt tell Philip. Victor reluctantly agrees not to tell Philip the truth for now.

Frankie finds no one in the front yard but spots a gold locket in the snow. Frankie picks up the locket and looks around for an explanation. Jennifer considers what Jack said to be crazy but Hope starts to believe that this really could have been Jacks ghost. Jennifer refuses to believe it and both Hope and Jennifer sob as they hug. Hope tries to convince her that Jack was only coming back long enough to say goodbye.

Sami bursts into the bathroom loudly complaining about the stain on her dress so she doesnt notice Carrie spotting her and ducking into a bathroom stall. As Carrie wonders why Sami is in LA, Sami asks the cleaning lady who happened to also be in the ladies room to help fix her dress. The cleaning lady assumes first that Sami spilled the drink on herself but when Sami negates that by saying that someone threw the drink on her, the lady assumes it was her date. Sami explains that shes not here on a date even though she wishes she were. Carrie continues to eavesdrop from the bathroom stall as the cleaning lady talks with Sami about her dating prospect during the attempt to clean Samis dress. Sami tells the lady that this man is too interested in his business to care about her but the lady urges Sami to tell the man the truth before its too late. The lady is able to clean the bulk of the stain off of Samis dress. During the talk, Sami mentions being with the mans brother for a long time and Carrie realizes that Sami is talking about being here with Austin. The lady asks why Sami didnt try and get Lucas back and Sami claims she tried. The lady theorizes that Sami doesnt know which brother she is in love with. Sami starts to cry as she complains of having unknowingly messed up her entire life. Carrie wonders how she can manage getting out of the bathroom without Sami seeing her. Sami feels bad for bearing her soul to a stranger but the cleaning lady suggests that that could be the best way to do it rather than let the feelings bottle up inside but also subtly slips the tip jar towards Sami. Sami claims she cant understand why every relationship shes been in ends in disaster. Sami flashes back to her latest wedding day disaster. Sami mentions that the man she is with tonight isnt available to her and the lady asks about the mans brother. Sami insists she isnt getting back together with Lucas. Sami thanks the lady for being so easy to talk to and the lady nods toward her tip jar. Sami slips some money in the jar as she laments that she doesnt have anyone else to talk to. The lady asks about a mom or siblings and Sami tells her of Marlenas amnesia and how she can rarely reach Eric. Sami tells the woman about having two half sisters but that she isnt close to either of them. Sami laments that her two half sisters have everyone else thinking that they are perfect. Sami tells the lady about Claires illness and that it seems lately that Carries name keeps coming up. Sami admits that she and Carrie dont get along because of the man she is with tonight. Sami and Carrie each flash back to arguing with Carrie about stealing Austin from her. Sami admits that she purposefully did everything she could to keep Carrie and Austin apart. The lady notes that breaking up Carries relationship didnt make her very happy. Carrie listens as Sami cries over the fact that she misses her and wishes the rift between them could be changed. Sami tells the lady that Carrie is living happily ever after with another guy in another country but laments that things only worked out for Carrie and not her. The lady urges Sami to let Austin know that shes interested in him because he may be more interested than she thinks. Carrie drops her shoe and it slips out from under the stall door. Sami is surprised to learn that someone else is in the room and the lady asks if Carrie is okay. Carrie tries to speak in a high-pitched disguised voice as she assures the lady that she is okay but Sami recognizes something. It turns out that Sami recognizes Carries shoe brand and not her voice. Sami hands Carrie back her shoe. Sami slips a bit more cash into the tip jar as she thanks the lady and heads out of the ladies room. The lady asks Carrie if she is sick but Carrie comes out of the bathroom stall and tells her that she is fine now that her sister is gone. The lady looks at Carrie confusedly.
Sami joins Austin at the bar and asks about the deal. Austin informs her that he doesnt think there is going to be a deal because he and Mr. Giles have some philosophical differences. Austin looks across the room and spots Lucas at the table but his view of Carrie is blocked by a bar patron. Carrie quietly informs Lucas that Sami and Austin are here in the restaurant and desperately wants to make a quick exit. Lucas looks across the room and spots Austin and Sami looking at him from the bar. Austin and Sami continue to peer through the bar crowd as Carrie begins to get agitated at the thought that shes been spotted. Lucas believes that they only saw Carries back so they havent realized who she is yet. Lucas and Carrie decide to try and make a quick unnoticed exit by cutting across the crowded dance floor. Sami and Austin push through the bar crowd only to get to Lucas table moments too late. Sami is saddened to hear Austin note how Lucas was here with a date and Austin decides to cheer her up by asking to dance.
