Eli and Julie sit together in the town square, talking about the Horton house fire. Eli calls it a blessing that they all made it out alive.

Eli says the worst kind and hopes the investigation gives them some solid leads but Julie says she’s not holding her breath. Julie says they are moving forward and going to restore, repair, and rebuild which she’s excited about. Eli asks about the mysterious time capsule. Julie says it’s great but they have no idea what the message is. Eli asks if she thinks the house will get finished or she’ll find the key to the time capsule first. Julie says time will tell and asks about Paulina not needing a heart transplant. Eli calls it a miracle and talks about how happy Abe is.

John and Marlena prepare for breakfast with Eric. Marlena asks if John is up for this since he’s been through so much with Steve lately. Marlena asks if John is still having nightmares. John admits they are getting worse. Marlena isn’t surprised after having to save Tripp and Wendy from the edge of death, feeling that would give anyone nightmares.

Eric and Roman talk at the Brady Pub. Roman thanks Eric for his help with Lucas. Eric asks if there’s any chance of Lucas coming out of hiding anytime soon.

Konstantin says he cherishes their friendship and her. Konstantin calls her a very special woman. Maggie repeats that she’s grateful but says she must be honest. Maggie admits that as much as she’s tried to fight it or that the guilt would subside, it hasn’t.

Ava reveals that she found out at the airfield that Rebecca Goldman is Clyde’s girlfriend which Steve says he didn’t see coming. Ava talks about Clyde taunting her about her son being dead. John complains that they are in this mess because they trusted Ava and didn’t expect her to stab them in the back. Ava tells them to get off their high horse, arguing that they double crossed her first since the original plan was to bust Clyde out and let him go, so she just went back to the original plan and she had no choice. Ava adds that Clyde is out now and there’s nothing they can do about it. John shouts that it doesn’t make it right. John tells Steve that he can’t live with himself knowing that Clyde is out there ruining people’s lives and that they made it happen. Steve knows it’s wrong and not what they do. Ava argues that they’ve all done some really bad things they aren’t proud of. Steve says those things are in the past while John is traumatized by those words. Steve asks if he’s okay.

Eric fills Roman in that Sloan got wasted. Marlena calls it not so crazy and unusual because of Sloan’s hectic job. Eric then reveals that he thinks Sloan sometimes gets jealous of Jude. Marlena asks if they’ve had that conversation. Eric says he’s tried to explain it and admits maybe he is a bit obsessed as he hates hearing Jude cry or being apart from him. Eric thanks Marlena and Roman for being amazing parents to him. Marlena says he always made it so easy and that he has thanked them. Roman adds that it’s still always nice to hear.

Ava thanks Steve for bringing Tripp back and hopes he knows that she’s incredibly grateful. Steve says they have Wendy to thank too for being smart with the sign language. Ava knows Steve hates the way she handled things, but she wants him to know that saving Tripp was the only thing on her mind and she didn’t want to drag Steve in to this mess. Steve argues that if she just would’ve trusted him, maybe he and John could’ve saved Tripp without letting Clyde go. Ava says maybe not, so they agree to disagree. Steve asks if Ava is coming to the hospital. Ava says maybe later but she has a few things to check on at the house first.

Julie tells Maggie that it’s been awhile since they have caught up, so she asks how she’s doing. Maggie admits she misses Victor and talks about sometimes waking up and forgetting for a few seconds that he’s not with her. Maggie adds that she now has a sense of guilt which Julie questions. Maggie tells her that when she’s with Konstantin, she feels drawn to him and she hates herself for it. Julie says Maggie has been a happily married woman twice and she has a lot of good years ahead of her, so she asks why she should be alone.
