Victor realizing that he had been set up. ("It's Time to Move On")

After the death of their parents who they were accused of murdering, Victor and his firm were hired by Caleb and Catherine Hapstall. During the trial, the prosecutor asked Helena Hapstall about what she witnessed on the night of her brother and sister-in-law's murder. She explains that she heard screaming and went to the window to see what was going on at the mansion. She claimed to have seen both Caleb and Catherine running past the window. The prosecutor then gave Helena over to the defendant's attorney who then introduced some surveillance footage into evidence which showed Helena at a spa during the murder meaning that she couldn't have seen the murder as she wasn't there. The prosecutor later introduces further evidence to disprove the defendants one as the new footage proves that Helena was at the spa during 2013, not at the time of the murder. Victor instantly knew that the evidence which his assistant obtained was planted by Annalise Keating as a way to get the Hapstalls to fire his firm and hire her. The judge then called both attorneys to her office to talk about the evidence which the prosecutor claimed the defense doctored to get Helena's testimony thrown out. After being approached by Annalise personally, the Hapstalls fired Victor and hired Annalise. ("It's Time to Move On")
