Gwen was upset when she saw an article online about Jake’s death. Leo reminded her that Jake cheated on her with Gabi. Gwen still remembered the good times she had with Jake. Leo suggested that she focus on getting Sarah away from Xander. Gwen thought she might have a chance since Sarah was considered a person of interest in Abby’s murder. Chad went to see Sarah at the Salem Inn. He asked if she was there the night Abby was killed. Sarah said she would tell him if she could, but she didn’t know. She told him about her hallucinations. He said Abby experienced the same thing. He asked if it was possible she had a hallucination the night Abby died. Sarah said she did. He asked if it was possible she thought Abby was Kristen and stabbed her to death. She said she didn’t remember being at the house, but she couldn’t rule it out. He said she usually remembered her hallucinations. She said her dosage was off and her brain was hazy. He thanked her for her honesty. He left. She said she needed to find out if she killed Abby. Leo and Gwen got into an argument over whether or not she killed Abby. Chad showed up while they were arguing. He wasn’t surprised to see them together.

Chad said she was gone and there was nothing they could do about it. Chad apologized to him. Thomas ran away from him. Xander went to the interrogation room. He threatened Lucas if he didn’t tell the police He made up his memory of Sarah. Lucas said he only told the police what he remembered through hypnosis. Xander said the therapy was garbage. Lucas said Marlena was highly respected. He said he knew he saw Sarah there. He said he couldn’t prove it, but the police found the knife he used to cut lemons and it only had his blood on it. He said the knife that was used to kill Abby was a steak knife. Xander said that didn’t prove his innocence or Sarah’s guilt. Lucas said it proved that his story was starting to make sense. Xander left the police station and ran into Gwen and Leo. She told Xander not to give up on Sarah. Gwen said she thought Lucas was the killer. Xander said it looked like Lucas was innocent.

Orpheus was in Marlena’s office. He wanted her to listen to him. She agreed to do it. He told her that Evan was unstable. He asked her to be his psychiatrist. She didn’t want to.
