During a TV Interview Tom is asked if he can reveal what made him a believer but refuses to answer the question, leaving Owen's son Eric Crawford wanting to know what made Tom change his mind. Tom later finds out that his sister Becky is having an affair with Eric. Tom persuades Becky that Eric is doing it to find out the truth about Tom changing his mind.
