Recap written by Michele and Cheryl
Marlena told John about the gift Steve gave them. He didn’t care about the gift. He was upset with Steve because he defended Tripp. Marlena wanted him to see it from Steve’s point of view. She reminded him how their kids have done some bad things, but they didn’t turn their backs on them. She thought Steve’s gift was a peace offering. She hoped he would see it that way. Steve went to Kayla’s office and told her how he wanted to clear Tripp’s name. He told her about his conversation with Allie. He mentioned how she remembered the rape and saw a hand. She didn’t say for a fact it was Tripp’s hand. He asked her if it was possible that someone else broke in her place and attacked her. Kayla told him how the DNA test matched him. He thought someone related to Tripp assaulted Allie. Kayla wasn’t completely sure, but thought it was possible. John showed up at Kayla’s office with his gift. Steve thought he was giving it back. John wanted to have a drink with his friend. Allie went to see Marlena. She told her about her conversation with Sami. She said Sami wished she could hold her. Allie wished she could too. Marlena assured her how she was there for her. Rafe looked at Ava’s file when Nicole showed up at the station. Nicole saw Ava’s file so he told her about Tripp’s theory about that.
