Philip breaks down the safe house door and hears a baby crying. Philip uses a flashlight to look around and calls out Belles name. Philip spots a woman holding a crying baby wrapped in a blue blanket that has her back to Philip and Philip feels that hes finally caught Belle.

Shawn tries to convince Pete that Claire is his baby but Pete doesnt believe him. Nick suggests that Pete call Roman to verify his story. While Pete steps away to make the call, Nick tells Shawn that Mickey explained to him that since Shawn and Belle are Claires real parents, by law they didnt technically kidnap Claire and thus only are guilty of violating the court order. Pete returns from the phone call claiming to now know the whole story.
Sami jokes that her hair wasnt this nice that night and Bruce explains that they need the audience to fall in love with Sami first and directs her to sit in front of the camera and tell her story from the beginning.

Bruce stops Sami mid-story and instructs her to lift the beam again so that viewers can see Sami actually in the situation.
Steve fills Kayla in on why EJ is a free man. Steve wants to confront EJ but Kayla tries to stop him. Steve would rather confront EJ in hopes of getting immediate answers rather than wait until tomorrow to talk to Benji.
