Phil is seen working at the Sector 19 Remote Refurbishment Facility when Blaine Bellamy bursts in and tells the staff that the Hosts have started killing guests. He is followed by Dolores Abernathy, Teddy Flood, and Angela. Dolores makes Phil show Teddy his history, using the tablet device to show the Host the many deaths he had suffered. Teddy questioned why he could not remember this, and why they did it. When Phil answered "for fun," Teddy attacked him.
Phil later reactivated the Lieutenant Dunleavy Host on Dolores orders in order to track down the Confederados. After finding the Confederados led by Major Craddock, Dolores, Teddy, and Angela killed them. Dolores then had Phil reactivate Craddock in order to make him believe in and follow her.
Trying to stay alive, Phil is forced to follow the orders of Dolores Abernathy.
Phil is terrified by the members of this group, but wanting to stay alive, he goes along wit them and reactivates hosts, making them loyal to Dolores Abernathy and her alone.
