Lilian arrives at Leonid's and, keeping up her flirting, hints at what he keeps in his safe. Dropping the pretence, Leonid opens the safe and puts his emeralds on Lilian before throwing her Nikolai's phone. He tells her to call Matt and ask him to join them.

Matt has been trying to call Lilian but she has left her phone in the hotel room. Brenda answers and confirms where Lilian is. Matt asks Brenda to find out from Dmitry where Leonid's house is. Then he receives a call from a distressed Lilian telling him to get to Leonid's. Brenda goes to Dmitry and asks for his help. Dmitry speaks to Tatyana in Russian and goes to help Matt. At Leonid's, Dmitry and Matt enter together. Seeing Lilian in danger, Matt tears up his contract - he doesn't want the money. Leon isn't buying this and asks Matt about the rest of the deal he is trying to take over. Dmitry steps in, declaring he is the one initiating the takeover and that as they speak his sister Tatyana is buying the rest of the shares: it's over. Leonid goes crazy, screaming and smashing up the room, as Dmitry, Matt and an hysterical Lilian flee the house.

The next morning Brenda tells Dmitry she will not be going to Russia to work with him but tells him she will treasure the memories he has given her forever. Dmitry is devastated but gives her a gift to remember him by: the diamond they saw when they first met. Meanwhile Matt wakes up with an amorous Lilian who thanks him for giving up the whole deal and potentially a lot of money to save her. When Matt realised she was in danger he realised none of the past mattered: she risked everything for him. He tells her she's the bravest woman he's ever known. Lilian realises she has her old Tiger back...
