Holly and the others on her team are sent to New York to work with Lance Armstrong and stop Teddy. They just miss him when they determine that he has sat next to Holly at the Met Opera, and gone undetected as he is now a master of disguise. They narrowly miss him at the Opera Music Store. He gets away from them Sax 5th Ave by posing as Santa after shooting someone who is out to hurt Holly while Skating in Central Park.
