Viktor invites Adalind Schade to Kronenberg Castle where he asks her if she knows anything about the death of Eric Renard. When she replies in the negative, he asks her to compile a list of people in Portland who may have been involved.
When Adalind is in her hotel room standing in front of a mirror rubbing the goo from Frau Pech's body on her stomach, he is watching her on a hidden camera.
Viktor meets with the head of the Verrat, Gregor Danilov. Viktor rages over the Resistance's solidification after seeing the images of members involved: Meisner, Tavitian, and Frenay. Viktor makes the connection between the Resistance and Sean Renard's return to Vienna, and blames Danilov for Sean's escape. Just then, Sebastien knocks and enters with Adalind. He sees the photos of the Resistance members, but is quickly shooed out by Viktor. Viktor asks Adalind if she recognizes the members and she says she doesn't, until she remembers Meisner watching her in the cafe. She does not reveal that information, but admits that she found a note signed by Sean on her dresser in her hotel room. Viktor walks Adalind to the door as she leaves the room. Viktor wonders if Sean knows about Eric's child, but Danilov reveals that Sean had a relationship with both Adalind and her mother. Viktor, while mildly impressed, muses over the consequences of Adalind carrying Sean's child instead. He orders Danilov to find out who the father is, "sooner, rather than later."
Sebastien brings Stefania Vaduva Popescu to Viktor's office while Viktor is observing Adalind on his screens. A brief conversation reveals that Stefania has betrayed Adalind, and has been working for Viktor all along to obtain the royal child from Adalind.
Later, Viktor learns about how Adalind escaped and that the Verrat agents sent to get her are dead. Realizing that Adalind must have somehow been warned prior to the visit from the Verrat, he has his men bring Stefania to him again, having jumped to the conclusion that she was the one who'd told Adalind about his plans. Stefania denies the accusations, telling him that she would never betray him and states calmly that someone close to him has betrayed them both.
Viktor has Sebastien meet him in his office. When Sebastien walks in to meet Viktor, Viktor is pouring drinks and tells him to sit. Sebastien asks if he has done something wrong and Viktor tells him yes, but it's not too late to make things right. Gregor Danilov appears and tells Sebastien that all he has to do is tell them all the names of his friends in the Resistance. Danilov then forces Sebastien's head back as Viktor pours a drink in causing Sebastien to choke a little. Viktor tells Danilov he is all his and Danilov takes Sebastien away.
Later, Verrat agents are waterboarding Sebastien under Danilov's orders. Viktor walks up and says he is very forgiving. He tells Sebastien, "you can either change your mind or choke on your heroics."
Sebastien eventually gives in and takes Viktor and some Verrat agents to where he dropped Adalind, her baby, and Meisner off. Viktor has one agent stay behind to guard Sebastien, while he and the rest head into the forest. By the time Viktor and the Verrat arrive to the cabin, Adalind, her baby, and Meisner are already gone. Viktor notices the fireplace is still giving off heat and says they haven't gone far.
Viktor and the Verrat agents continue looking for Adalind, her baby, and Meisner. When they return to the road where they arrived, they find that the car that had Sebastien inside is missing and the Verrat agent who was guarding Sebastien is dead. Viktor knows Meisner and Adalind rook it and assumes Sebastien is still inside the car, but when one of the agents opens the the backdoor of the other car, he finds Sebastien, who quickly shoots all the Verrat agents as Viktor ducks for cover. Sebastien tries to shoot Viktor, but he runs out of bullets. Viktor walks up to the car and asks Sebastien where his friends went. When Sebastien says he doesn't know, Viktor says he believes him this time and shoots Sebastien, killing him.
Viktor called Gregor Danilov to his office where he expressed his displeasure that Danilov allowed Adalind and the baby to escape the country and allow Meisner to disappear despite the fact that they had intercepted communications from Resistance agents that gave plenty of time to disrupt their plans. He told Danilov his services were no longer needed by the Royal Family and two Hundjäger came into the office and attacked, and killed Danilov.
Soon later, Marcus Ruspoli arrived to Viktor's office and Viktor appointed him as the new leader of the Verrat. Viktor tells Marcus that it is his job to find Adalind and her daughter. He says he is placing every resource they have to assist him and tells him to do whatever he has to, to find them.
Later, Marcus comes to Viktor to give him new information on where the plane Adalind and the baby were on went. Marcus says the last time it was picked up by communications, it was flying over Canada heading West. Marcus pulls out a tablet and shows Viktor the map of where the plane's locations had been picked up. Viktor looks at the map and guesses that Adalind may be heading back home to Portland.
