Throughout the Series Edit

In Mr. Santiago, he visits Amy in Brooklyn for Thanksgiving and it's also the first time Jake is meeting him. They arrive together at Amy's apartment since Jake picked him up from the airport. Jake tries to win him over by making a binder about Victor and impresses him with the new information. Victor finds Jake binder that he hid in the stoop and points out Jake's comment on a case he wasn't able to solve 20 years ago. They set out to solve it.

When they got to the suspect's house, it turns out that Victor already thought of Jake's idea that the sons might have done the crime. Jake then confronts him about setting him up. Victor then reveals that he has his own binder for Jake and sees him unfit to date Amy.

In the car back to Amy's, they get a call from her and they get a lecture on how it's Amy's decision to date Jake. They cut her off as they realized that the robbery was done by the daughter.

After the daughter confessed, they get back to Amy's apartment and even though Victor still doesn't think highly of Jake, he says the only thing that matters is what Amy thinks.
