He tells Phillip that when he pulled that evidence he not only put his career at risk but he put his family at risk too. Phillip tells him he will never forget what he did for him.

Harry tells Roman and Hope that he traced an email and it looks like it came from the Kiriakis mansion. Roman said Phillip is much smarter than to send an email from there knowing it could be traced. Harry clicks some more on the computer and he says it looks like the email came from Java Café. Hope says that sounds like a setup to her. Roman says he thinks John is in this way over his head. She says she hopes he isn’t the only one and she heads over to Java to talk to the waiter there.

Hope gets the guy at Java to go look on the security footage from their cameras to see if he can figure out who was using the computers there around the time frame that the email was sent. When he walks off to look, Doug walks up and wants to know why Hope wanted him to meet her there. When they sit down she asks him if he would break the law in order to protect his family. Doug admits to Hope that back in his day he did some things that he isn’t proud of that broke the law but it wasn’t to protect his family. He says but if it comes down to it yes he would do it to protect his family if he had to. Doug worries that she did something but she assures him it isn’t her and not o worry. ‘

She sees the guy at the bar so she goes and asks him if he had any luck. He tells her he loaded the DVD into the laptop and asks her if she wants to see and she says yes.

He says while he was in prison all he could think about was Allie and what would happen to her if he died. Maggie tells him she wants him to do her a favor to promise her that he will think long and hard about his feelings for Sami. He promises to think about it and Maggie tells her that she is going to hold him to that.

Cloe is standing at the door listening. She goes in and says she brought him some green tea. Maggie decides to leave. When she is gone Lucas tells her about Maggie giving him the key to the cabin. She asks if he is sure he wants to go there or would he rather stay there and patch things up with Sami. He says no. He would rather spend some time alone. Cloe just stands there staring.
