Before this instance, no one related to the diner had ever heard of or seen Howard Lane. However, he does not care whether they know him or not and walks into the diner to handover the Eviction notice to Victoria. Howard informs them that his deceased father had never actually sold the land. If he would have done something like this, he would have recorded it on their property papers. Therefore, he serves the family of Victoria with the eviction notice. Victoria and Greg decide not to evict the place without indulging into a battle of ownership with Howard Lance.
