They can’t
legally charge Sam with anything yet, so they need to catch him in the act. In
order for this plan to work, Sam has to think Gabe was successfully framed. So
they have to go to the ceremony and make Sam think they haven’t rumbled him by
making him think they suspect Gabe, a red herring he raised to try and take the
focus off him since the clinical trials he did for their son and the bones
would have connected to him. Therefore, Catherine needs another date for the
party. They all turn to Vincent. Funny how no-one thought of JT. Vincent facial
expression with the bottle in his mouth is absolutely spot on.😀

GABE: “We got to catch him in the act of something. And the best way to do
that is to let him think that his plan is working, con the con man”

CATHERINE: “Well,
his con is to make us think you’re the bad guy”

GABE:” Then you
better find yourself a new date”
