They wonder if these muggings were targeting lawyers... unfortunately, everyone hates lawyers. Justin arrives. Hope hopes his head feels better and runs off. Adrienne asks him to talk. They go to the Cheatin' Heart. She's already got a buyer for the bar, she says, before changing the subject to her return. Although she was angry about being tricked into coming back, being there has helped her realize something. Seeing him with his head bashed in made her realize that he was her rock. They're both sorry for what happened and want to move forward.

At the mansion, Hope is popping pills when Ciara comes in. Hope swears so her daughter berates her. "I'm sorry puppy," Hope says, ushering her daughter upstairs to read a story.

"Maybe some day, Uncle Justin can be your new daddy," Hope says.

Rafe and EJ are down at the pier reviewing Elvis' relationship with his father. They bicker and taunt. Rafe vows to discover what his father has on him and then put him away for good.

She's nauseous at the thought and tells him that she will always loathe him. He tells her she's arrogant, stupid and has just sealed her own fate. Stefano doesn't know how Marlena could give birth to 'something' like her. Frustrated, he growls and nearly lets it slip that his son is smitten with her. She cuts off visitation. He apologizes and asks her if they be civil. They bicker and she doesn't understand what's going on or care about being civil with him. He reminds her that Will lives with him now. After she loads the children in a car, she frantically searches for a penguin. Kate arrives to say the penguin got into the diapers. Sami runs out. "I loathe that woman," Kate says, offering to bake some special brownies for Sami. He tells her about EJ's feelings for Sami. "I don't understand it. She must be like one of those whistles only dogs can hear," she says. He cringes and assumes his son has some kind of post traumatic stress. Elvis arrives and kicks  Kate out. EJ informs him that Anna is in custody. He mopes. Stefano explains that the woman who was caught was just a decoy.

Sami runs into Rafe at the station. He tells her that they have Anna in custody. She's impressed that he never stopped looking. Another call comes in. This one tells him that it wasn't really Anna.

"We girls know these things about other girls," she says. Viv goes inside and eavesdrops on Nicole's warnings about Carly. She fantasizes about Chloe throwing Carly into the harbor and smiles.

She explains it's all about revenge and tells him to go hop on a plane. Meanwhile, Chloe heads over to the Mercer and asks the dude at the desk if Carly or Daniel have checked in. She gives him a bribe so he looks for the names but there's no match so she shows him a picture of Daniel. He stares and says that he could be there with some chick and they probably aren't playing checkers. Chloe gasps and runs off. The clerk calls Viv to tell her what happened. She giggles as she relates it all to Gus. He worries her plan could backfire.

Rafe wonders what the offer was so she explains. He giggles. She stares and shrugs. He tells her that he will always love her, but EJ is full of crap and he's manipulating her.

"Like father like daughter," he groans. She says that Mel doesn't deserve him. He sucks on her lips and they leap onto the couch. A fire erupts in the fireplace as they tear their clothes off. Their phones vibrate on a table as they gyrate on the couch. After sex, he begs her not to talk. Her phone keeps vibrating so she checks her messages. He hobbles over and checks his.

Stefano calls Rafe with information about Sami. Meanwhile, Will goes over to the townhouse to see his mom. He asks if his siblings are going to be at the mansion all the time. When he mentions Stefano, she decides that Rafe was right, "Dammit EJ!" she blurts out. She storms out.

Hope and Dr. Baker meet in some basement to chat. He makes a pass at her but she's not interested in what he has to offer. She talks about cash and winks. Hope likes to rescue people. He explains that people think he's dead. She whips out her gun. They get cryptic and talk business. The doctor goes off on his own and runs into Elvis on the pier. "You! You're dead!"
