Dimitri is still in town!
Theo is alarmed as his angry dad forces his way into the house.
The businessman is furious after Theo's SHOCK accusations against him.

So Dean takes matters into his own hands and corners barman, Ryder Jackson (Lukas Radovich).

She shouldn't be travelling long distances.
