DRAMA SURROUNDS “VICKER MAN” PREMIER

Todd and Baker’s argument is interrupted by Dorian. Baker convinces Dorian he’s consulting with Todd about amping up security. When Baker gets a call telling him the man with Todd’s original face is still alive, he exits. Meanwhile the man with Todd’s original face is seeking John’s help. When John and the man with Todd Manning’s original face are shot at, John’s doubts about his story are erased, and John takes him to the Angel Square Hotel. Tea appears at John’s room wanting to talk to John, forcing the man with Todd Manning’s original face to conceal himself as she reveals that Tomas was a CIA operative. She further imparts that Tomas was on the scene at Todd’s shooting, but he was there to protect Todd. John takes a DNA sample from the man with Todd’s original face and tells him not to leave the room at Angel Square Hotel. John then goes to Todd’s office to obtain a DNA sample from him, and Todd finds him there. John gives an explanation and leaves, but while he was out, the man with Todd’s original face took a call from Tomas and pretended to be John. Tea and Dani interrupt Tomas’s phone conversation and he and “John” agree to meet at the gala later. When John returns home, the man with Todd Manning’s original face tells him he impersonated him on the phone and committed him to attending the gala. Todd and his family arrive at the gala as the man with Todd Manning’s original face watches them walk the red carpet on television. The man with Todd’s original face is intercepted by Baker before he reaches the gala. Baker plans to kill the man with Todd’s original face, then ambush John and Tomas at the Palace, but the man with Todd’s original face overpowers him and takes his tuxedo and gun. At the Palace, Tomas tells John that he was mixed up with some bad people through his work at the CIA and that Todd was also involved.
