Stefan was tied to a chair in the wine cellar. He tried to get out of the restraints. He tried to reach for his phone, but it fell to the floor. He took his foot out of his shoe and used it to answer a call from Statesville. The call was from Vivian. He begged his mother to send him help. She called him out for not visiting her since he was reincarnated. He groveled and she agreed to consider helping him. Li came out of the shower and noticed that Gabi was trying to leave his room.
