Justin tells him that no one will ever forget what he did to Hope and who he is. Aiden says in any other town, Justin would be going to jail so he should be thanking him for not bringing the evidence public.

Caroline says she's sorry but she's afraid it was Victor so Maggie breaks down crying.
Sonny and Justin sit at the Pub. Sonny tells Justin about not prosecuting Victor but Justin reveals to him that he is no longer the DA as he resigned last night. Sonny is shocked and asks why. Justin says he did something really stupid trying to help Victor and it blew up in his face. Justin explains that he tried to get information on Deimos from Victor so to prove himself, Deimos gave him a test. Justin says he made evidence against a crook disappear but someone caught him doing the whole thing so he's out. Justin says he's lucky that he only lost his job. Sonny asks how he didn't get arrested. Justin says it was a low level guy and Abe understood that Deimos was a threat to his family but he broke the law so he had to resign. Sonny asks if it will go public. Justin says no publicity and no trial as it would be worse for the police department. Justin adds that he kept Victor out of it and Abe let him resign for personal reasons. Sonny blames it all on Deimos. Justin says too bad the truce didn't start sooner. Sonny believes there is no truce and that this was all a smoke screen so Deimos could set Victor up for the kidnapping. Justin notes that he sounds sure. Sonny states that Victor wouldn't kidnap Tate.
Brady joins Theresa at home with Tate and talk about things being perfect. Theresa asks how it went. Brady says it wasn't pretty and Victor is under arrest. Theresa still can't believe it or understand how Victor would stoop that low. Brady says Victor has been harsh ever since Bo died so it wasn't just about getting back at her but implicating Summer too. Theresa admits Summer did help them in the end but she's so glad she is gone. Theresa says maybe they can get back to normal now. Brady asks what is normal for them anyways. Brady doesn't want to take his eyes off her or Tate. Brady declares they are together again and kisses her.

Aiden says he will be reviewing all of Justin's cases, open and closed. Abe thinks the open cases will keep him busy. Aiden wants to make sure he doesn't inherit any problems. Roman assures that Justin was a good prosecutor. Aiden thinks it's best to get fresh eyes on everything then exits the office.
Justin tells Sonny that he will represent Victor. Sonny adds that he will find a way to prove Deimos is behind this. Justin tells him not to worry as he's on it.
Maggie asks Caroline how she can think Victor is guilty. Caroline explains that when they were in the first hotel room, she envisioned Victor on the other end of the phone. Caroline says Victor avoided it, got very upset and told her to keep it to herself. Caroline felt Victor wasn't being straight with her then.
Victor is brought in to the police station. Victor asks for a word with John before he is booked. Victor asks if he came to make sure the door gets locked.
