He finds he can't press the button and starts to walk towards the door. Andre wakes and manages to push his own button, shutting off the machines and sounding the alarm. The doctor and nurses burst into the room. The officer informs Stefano that Andre is dead.
He confronts Shawn and claims that because of his actions, the vendetta is back on.
He demands that Shawn be arrested but the police claim there is no evidence justifying an arrest. At the Pub everyone is thrilled when Sami finally rips up the annulment papers.
