Julie questions Victor destroying his will and that he and Vivian never divorced. Julie asks if this is some kind of joke. Vivian calls it no laughing matter and states that when Victor passed away, he was her husband and not Maggie’s. Maggie doesn’t give a damn and shouts that Victor was her husband in every way that mattered. Vivian says except legally. Vivian adds that she has some errands to run, so if they are still there when she comes back, she will have to call the authorities. After Vivian leaves the mansion, Julie calls her a bitch.

Gabi argues that Nick was an abusive jerk that she had to defend herself from and compares it to Carly Manning and Vivian’s nephew Lawrence. Vivian asks how dare she bring that up. Gabi complains about Vivian insinuating that she’s not good enough for her son which Vivian calls a fact. Gabi argues that Vivian is the reason they lost years because Stefan took a bullet for her.

Vivian goes over Dimitri being related to Carly and a DiMera, making him a Von Leuschner. Dimitri states that it makes him her sworn enemy. Vivian thinks she better get going. Stefan stops her and says she did a lot of talking and made it clear she’s as bitter as ever, but she hadn’t told them what she’s doing in Salem.
Maggie tells Julie that she can’t believe this is happening as she could lose her home and everything that she and Victor built to Vivian. Julie refuses to believe it and argues there must be something Justin can do. Maggie confirms that Justin looked in to Vivian’s claim and found out that it’s legit that Vivian and Victor’s divorce was never properly finalized. Julie argues that Maggie can’t surrender and she has to fight. Julie declares that a problem like Vivian Alamain can’t be solved over tea. Julie invites Maggie to her house where they can calmly plan her next moves. Julie says Maggie would only be gone long enough to get her bearings and so she doesn’t give Vivian the satisfaction of throwing her out of Victor’s house. Julie says it will better if Maggie leaves on her own so they can come up with a plan to throw Vivian out onto the streets. Julie encourages that Maggie has to fight and she’s going to fight with her.

Kristen suggest she and Dimitri go finish their conversation but Dimitri convinces her that it can wait. Kristen then exits. Dimitri says he should get going too but Gabi stops him and says her question wasn’t answered, so she asks again what Kristen was threatening to tell Gwen earlier. Stefan then tells Dimitri that they’ll save him the trouble of coming up with a lie because they know. Gabi then reveals that they know Dimitri is having an affair with Leo Stark and tells him not to deny it because Rachel saw them in bed together and they know that he got Leo’s hotel in Iceland. Stefan tells Dimitri not to look so rattled, because they are willing to keep his dirty affair a secret. Gabi adds that they do have conditions.
