Philip explains that Deimos followed them to the doctor and demanded a paternity test. Kate tells them that the truth always comes out and now will but Philip says it won't if Kate cooperates since she hates Deimos and this is her chance to stick it to him. Philip states that Deimos has everything he wants except a kid and she has the power to keep it that way. Kate questions how she would do that. Philip says he did research on Chloe's doctor and found out that Kate helped raise money for his clinic. Philip asks Kate to get the doctor to say he's the dad. Kate says he's a very ethical man and won't do it. Philip tells her to get to the lab he uses then. Kate admits she loves the idea of sticking it to Deimos. Philip asks if she's in.
