Do you notice something different about Philip Spaulding? He is much calmer than the Philip that left Springfield a few years ago. Philip faces a rude awakening: he returns to town to find things are very different in Springfield.
When Philip left town, Harley was still in Springfield, trying desperately to keep her son away from Philip due to his deranged behavior. Olivia was also in the same predicament, protecting their daughter, Emma. Since Philip left, Beth & Rick finally admitted they have feelings for each other. Upon Philip’s return, he finds Beth marrying his Father, but in love with Coop, Harley is missing, and Gus is dead.
How long will the new Philip last? What will happen when Philip finds out that Cyrus is Lizzie’s kidnapper? What will Philip’s reaction be when he discovers how Alan manipulated Beth for years? And the ultimate question, will Philip and Beth somehow find their way back to each other?

-Philip is pushed to the limit when he discovers Cyrus is Lizzie’s kidnapper.
-Philip is prevented from seeing his daughter Emma, and meets stiff opposition by Olivia and Natalia.
