The nurses explain the records don't lie and that is why they ordered some tests since the figured it was only right to prove if there was some descrepancy or mistake.

Mimi tells them both to shutup and says she has something important to tell them that may change everything and give Philip back his will to live. Belle and Shawn are confused.
Mimi: Belle, Shawn. Not everything is what it seems. You see...I just heard some nurses and Lexie talking and they found something odd while researching Philip's medical record's and history. Claire's info was on the same page as they had yet to change it to reflect Shawn as the father so they were able to cross check both Philip and Claire's records since they were listed of the same family...
Belle: What are you talking about?
Mimi: I am talking about Claire, Belle. She is not Shawn's daugther. There was some sort of mistake. Claire is Philip's biological daughter!!!
Belle: What?!!! NO!! That is impossible.
Shawn: We just found out from you on the island that I was the father.
Lexie enters with the nurses.
Lexie: It's true. Mimi's right. Shawn is not Claire's father...Philip is.
A stunned Belle and Shawn look on as Mimi wonders if maybe she still has a chance left with Shawn as the screen fades to black and the credits roll.
