Anna and Duke are about to move into the bedroom -- don't ask me how Cesar was planning to pull that off -- when there's a knock at the door. The artist formerly known as Faison answers the door, believing it to be room service. Though they bring fondue, the waiters are dressed in street clothes because they're not waiters - it's Robert Scorpio and John McBain.
Anna demands to know what Robert is doing there. "You didn't get my message," he guesses, and proceeds to tell her that Faison is alive. Anna knows that and tells them that Duke was bound and gagged. She saw both men.
On further questioning, Anna does admit that she was unconscious for some of the time. Robert informs her that Dr. Obrecht denied knowing Duke but called "Duke" as soon as they left.
"Duke" loses his temper. He doesn't know anything about any of this! McBain pulls out the phone and calls the last number dialed. "Duke's" phone rings. This incenses "Duke" even more. Suddenly, everyone starts perspiring; McBain has turned up the heat. Masks, you see, don't sweat. Robert realizes that Faison didn't need plastic surgery -- he was, in fact, in black ops, and all he'd need was a mask.
"Duke" says he's leaving, and asks Anna to accompany him. She agrees. But she wants to go to the inn at Andermatt where they were snowbound. He agrees to take her there. Anna pulls away. They never went and they were never snowbound.
"Duke" is now desperate and sputters that he forgot a lot and he wanted to please her. He turns to leave, but Robert stops him. He then throws the fondue oil in "Duke's face" and the mask begins to melt. "Duke" covers his face as he screams, then finally removes what's left of the mask. Faison! Faison is handcuffed as he cries that he only wanted Anna to return his love. Anna punches him.
