I Annoy Myself Too.

At the station, Rafe is trying to crack Nicole's code. He finds a clue and runs off. Over at the pub, Caroline is trying not to say much to Sami after the blond tells her she's considering EJ's proposal. Caroline doesn't want to talk to her about all of this stuff. She knows it's a waste of time and tells Sami to stop asking for her advice when she doesn't actually want it. Sami makes faces, twitches and sighs. Caroline notices she's not happy. Sami feels like Rafe doesn't even notice that she exists. "I annoy myself too," Sami admits. Caroline tells her EJ is no consolation prize and then bustles off to make clam chowder. When Sami turns around, Rafe walks into her. They talk awkwardly until he says he misses her and asks her to have coffee with him. She tries to tell him the latest about EJ and then begins babbling. The minutes roll by and then his phone rings. He leaves to take it and she gets annoyed. When he returns, she decides he's too busy to talk. He doesn't understand why she is so angry. They bicker about that until he gets another call and leaves. "Jerk!" she shouts at him.

In her dive, Nicole pulls out a copy of her recording of EJ and Stefano's conversation. Her phone rings. She assumes it's Baker so starts to spazz. It's just her mom. Fay wonders what's going on so her daughter hangs up on her. She calls Elvis and orders him to meet her at the pier. When she arrives, he's waiting and in a pissy mood. After some bickering, she tells him she needs to use Marco. He agrees to send him to her. When she gets to her place, Marco arrives and she orders him to pay Baker a visit. Back at the pier, Sami stumbles onto EJ wearing a fishing cap and holding a rod. She laughs at him. He claims he's trying something new and hands her a pole. "I just wanted to show you I can be a regular kind of Joe," he says. He gets excited and tells her she has a bite on her line. When she reels it in, there's a ring on the hook. Elvis drops to his knee and blinks as she quivers. He loves her and wants to spend his life loving her. "Will you marry me?" he asks. She cries.

Over at the station, Theo explains Ciara's treasures to Bo. Abe returns so they send Theo off to draw pictures. The men mull over what all of this means. Abe offers to help him question Ciara but Bo wants to do it alone. He heads down to the park and chats with the babysitter, who tells him that Ciara is really easygoing. That's news to him. Ciara runs over and Bo begins asking about her mommy's treasures. She refuses to discuss that. He probes and says he just wants to help her mom. She asks him to promise not to get a divorce. He can't make that promise but says he wants them to be a family. Ciara tells him all about the wallets and who they belonged to.

Hope is confusing Carly at the mansion. The doctor doesn't understand her weird twists of attitude. Viv strolls in and begins suggesting that Carly could have tried to kill Bo like she did Lawrence. Carly explodes and orders her to shut up. Hope tells Viv to go away too. Viv advises her not to trust Carly and walks off. They discuss what Viv said and Carly admits that there is always a kernel of truth in what Viv says. Hope asks her if she knew she was going to kill Lawrence before she did it. Carly claims she was just desperate and regrets it but she did it to save her daughter's life. The cop tells her she was very brave. Carly leaves so Hope can get some sleep. When she goes up to her room, she discovers that she's out of pills. After digging one out of the bottom of her purse, she gulps it down, sleeps for a minute and then wakes up. Meanwhile, Carly runs over to the pub to confront Viv and orders her to treat Hope with kid gloves. Viv smirks and Carly storms off. Vivian guesses she must have a new secret.

Baker is at his place talking to himself and packing his Hawaiian shirts. He keeps thinking of Hope and guesses things will only get worse. Meanwhile, Rafe shows up at the hospital where Fay works and begins questioning her.
