Next is Rick who is at Company. Phillip says hes like his brother. He knows that Rick knows what loyalty is, which makes what hes done all the more unforgivable.
Buzz, Frank, Coop, and Harley are at Company. Phillip states Frank, Buzz, and Coop all humiliated his family and tried to take Zack and Lizzie away from him. He tells Harley) she could have stopped all of this. But, she pushes people into corners and then wonders why they push back. He says because Harley thinks shes right and always morally superior to the rest of us. Phillip elaborates that she thought she could make a fool out of him by masquerading as Ruth. He states Ill be serving that dish, Harley, and its a bitter, bitter pill that shell have to swallow.
Phillip is now outside of Company and continues to speak to himself. He states I loved you all in one way or another. My family, my everything. Theres just one thing left to do.
Frank asks if they are ready to go. He wants to take different leads to find the kids. Harley asks what do I do? Frank wants Harley to go upstairs as shes too emotionally involved. If she doesnt, Frank states hell take her down to the holding cell. Coop, Buzz, and Rick all agree they know whats best for her. Rick tells Harley hell call her. Harley says to herself please bring my babies back to me.
Coop states hell go the Spauldings. Buzz doesnt agree. Coop wants to make sure Lizzie is okay and feels hes in good terms with Alan since saving Lizzies life.
The clock on the mantle in the Spaulding study says 12:30 pm. Coop arrives at Spaulding study, and Alan says this is not a good time, and tells Coop to get out. Alan states her family is taking care of that. Coop replies like you took care of your son? Beth and Lizzie want him to stay, and Alan eventually agrees. Coop and Lizzie head to the kitchen to get something to eat. In the hallway, Alan says what Coop said is true.
This is crisis is somewhat my fault. Beth states all that matters is getting the children back. Beth is going to make more calls as Alan leaves to check security.
Beth returns to the study, and finds Phillip waiting for her. He states I had to see you.

She states Joe is on the upstairs phone about it with Frank and that they have to move because its not safe. Brian goes upstairs to check with Joe as Harley slips out unseen.
Beth asks Phillip what he has done with their son. Phillip states he is safe. Beth screams out for Alan, but Phillip puts his hand over her mouth. Phillip says he’ll give James back to her but first, he wants to explain, for her to listen, and asks her to be quiet. He takes his hand away from her mouth. Beth asks if he’ll return all the children. Phillip replies only James to her. Beth states that he tried to take Lizzie by force. Phillip admits he was wrong to try and force Lizzie to go since she is an adult, and believes Beth is a good mother unlike Harley and Olivia who don’t share the same values. He only trusts Beth.
She grabs onto Phillip, hugs him, and begs him not to do this. Phillip says what you and I had was the first and the best for both of us. They are holding each other tight. He says and not matter what I ever do, you are my family, and I’ll always love you. Beth tells Phillip she loves him. She is crying, touches Philip’s face, and begs him not to do this.

In Olivias bar, Phillip is making the same deal with Rick. Rick states he has to tell Harley and Beth. Phillip says if you want Jude back, you will except these terms and wont convince him either wise. He says hes going away and wont be back. Phillip states I dont want last night being the last memory of you when you came after me with a hypodermic. He says you are my best friend. Rick states you know in your heart this is wrong. Phillip states Im trying to do the right thing and ask if he accepts his offer. Rick says since I want to see my son, Ill have to accept your offer. Phillip asks how many years did you want to be a father. You lost Abby because of it, and then God smiled upon you and gave you Jude. He says dont make me take him away from you. Phillip tells Rick to be at Company at 9 oclock and not to tell anyone. Phillip leaves.
Frank returns to Company and says after five hours, all dead ends. He asks Buzz if he’s okay. Buzz states I thought this war was over and no one else would get hurt. Buzz states we are reactive instead of proactive. He says we have to think about the future.
Buzz says the Cooper’s should be more Spaulding-like. He says they need to play hardball and go after what they want, especially their livelihoods and their children. Think outside the box gorilla warfare. Buzz says for example Phillip took Jude and Zack. We take Lizzie, hold her hostage and threaten to kill her. Frank asks you are kidding right? Buzz replies he doesn’t even know. Frank’s cell phone rings. He learns Harley gave the officer the slip. Buzz and Frank leave to find Harley.
Olivia is on the phone trying to find the location of Phillip. Bill says well keep brainstorming. Billy arrives and wants to help. He called the INS and told his friend he made a mistake. Billy states Phillip is the enemy not me. Olivia is very upset and says her daughter is gone and to hell with everything else. She leaves. Olivia enters the elevator, and Phillip is also on it, but is standing behind her.
Phillip asks Olivia is she wants her daughter back. Olivia grabs onto Phillip and pushes him, and he asks what is with her and elevators. Olivia demands to know where Emma is.

He claims he cant get her back until tonight and in the meantime, she cant tell anyone that he is here, or the deal is off, and shell never see Emma again. And he means, Rick, Harley and Beth. Phillip claims Emma needs a mother; even Olivia. Olivia asks just Emma why? Phillip states because shes a baby. He says you play dirty and dont give up. He would be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life. Phillip believes in time, Rick, Harley and Beth wont be as angry at him. Olivia tells Phillip he has truly lost it. Phillip states if you want Emma back, be at Company at 9 pm and if she tells anyone, the deal is off. Olivia doesnt believe Phillip and wants to know what hes up to. They reach the floor of the restaurant, and Phillip pushes Olivia out of the elevator.
Olivia walks into the restaurant at Towers and says Wait! 9 pm. Bill comes up to her and asks what is wrong. She apologizes for running out on him. Bill suggests they sit down and have a drink and figure out how to contact Phillip.
Beth arrives at Towers and orders at drink. She says almost 6:15. Bill and Olivia asks if shes heard any news. Beth asks you? They say no and are out of people to call.

She says besides that Phillip kidnapped my son. Alan says Beth doesnt seem to be herself. Beth states its stress. She asks if Alan has had any luck tracking down the corporate jet and Phillip must have paid off a lot of people as he cant get any information. Alan believes Phillip wont be found unless he wants to be found. Alan says dont worry we will find the children. Beth really wants to tell Alan about Phillip and begins to, but then changes her mind and only thanks him for everything hes done. Alan says you dont have to thank me as my family is in crisis. He loves everyone. Beth states she has to go and leaves. Alan picks up the phone receiver.
Outside of the Beacon, Gus is leaving a message for Harley and then receives a call from Alan. Alan wants his help before things spin out of control. Gus states its already out of control. Alan says I know you are angry with me, but this is the time that a family pulls all it resources together. Gus says he has to go and ends the call. Alan says dont go and angrily says dont hang up on me! He slams down the phone receiver.
Gus says hello to Phillip. Philip says keeps your hands where I can see them and away from that revolver on your belt. He has a message he wants delivered to Harley. Phillip will return Zack and Jude if she agrees to meet him at Company at 9 pm tonight. And Gus, or Harley, cannot tell a soul. But if they tell anyone, Harley and Rick wont see their children again. Gus tries to ask if the kids are in Springfield. Phillip says either do what I tell you to do, or try and play hero, and screw everything up. Its your choice. Phillip says Hero? Harley? Gus states yeah Company 9 oclock. Phillip nods his head and leaves. Gus says its almost 7 oclock now. Gus is trying to call Harley again.

Phillip takes out a gun and prepares to load it. Alan asks for him to bring back the children and he it takes it any further, he won’t be able to help him. Phillip believes he’s now smarter and stronger than Alan. Alan says if you are, then you’ll bring hose children home. Phillip says it’s too late as my plan is already in motion.
