Jada tells Everett to just sign the papers as Robert Stein so they can get this over with as they don’t want to be married to each other. Jada argues that it’s just a signature and no one will know or care. Everett responds that he’s sorry but he can’t sign the way she wants him to.

Sarah questions Xander saying the nightmare is not over. Xander talks about every night in jail, trying to figure it out because he knew he didn’t shoot Harris but the evidence was stacking up against him. Xander thinks he was framed and whoever set him up did a bang up job, but the only question is why him.

EJ separates Kristen and Nicole and questions if this is the example they want to set for their daughters. EJ questions Kristen attacking a teenage girl. Nicole thanks EJ for sticking up for Holly. Kristen asks EJ if he heard the things Nicole was saying about Rachel.

EJ states that Nicole is his wife and Kristen will show her respect. Kristen calls Nicole a scheming gold digger while Nicole calls Kristen a homicidal maniac.

Sloan puts Jude to sleep so Eric asks if she can sit down and go over the expenses now. Sloan says she would but she just noticed Jude is out of diapers. Eric asks if she’s sure as he thought they had one more pack but Sloan says they are all out, so she will be right back and then exits. Eric wonders where all their money can be going.

Leo tells Everett that he can only imagine what this is doing to him. Everett calls the whole thing a nightmare with Stephanie right in the middle of it. Leo talks about no one seeing this coming. Everett states that he’s not the victim but the bad guy in the situation since Jada thinks he’s a two timing bastard and Stephanie is debating whether he’s that or a nutjob.

Leo decides he will leave so that Everett can clear his head. Leo adds that he’s there for him, but he does agree with Jada that he won’t be able to move forward until he puts this behind him, so he has to figure it out. Leo declares that otherwise, he’ll never get Stephanie back and it’s obvious that he’s in love with her. Leo says he knows the feeling as he exits the office.

Stephanie and Jada go to the Pub. Stephanie thanks Jada for telling her about the divorce snafu and trusting her enough to open up about it. Jada knows it can’t be easy for her either. Stephanie admits it’s been pretty shocking. Jada tells her that she’s sorry for biting her head off more than once as she realizes she’s been taking all her anger out on her. Stephanie says she can’t imagine what she went through when her marriage ended and what she’s going through now. Jada says it’s no excuse since Stephanie is a victim here too. Jada asks if Stephanie can forgive her for the awful things she said.

Xander tells Sarah that someone went through a lot of trouble to set him up, starting with the phone call. Xander thinks back to the night he got that call. Xander says someone obviously duplicated his jogging outfit and planted the gun in their apartment. Sarah adds that they put the money in his account. Xander says it has to be someone who knows him with money. Sarah wonders if it was Clyde. Xander calls it possible that he financed it since he does have a vendetta against Harris, but questions why Clyde would pin it on him when he hasn’t had any contact with him in years. Xander thinks it would be odd for Clyde to go to such lengths to set him up. Sarah brings up the Spectator article saying that Stefan was doing Clyde’s bidding through the Bistro, so maybe Stefan hired the hitman. Xander decides he’s going to visit the jail to see if he can see Stefan. Sarah asks if he’s sure that’s a good idea.

Kristen asks EJ who he thinks he is and says he doesn’t own the house, adding that she’s been a DiMera longer than Nicole has. Nicole tells Kristen that it’s a big house and suggests agreeing to keep their kids away from each other. EJ says that’s settled and now he’s going to DiMera Enterprises to show some leadership as the board made it clear Stefan is out as head of DiMera, so he needs to take the reigns. Nicole asks if he can do that and still be district attorney. EJ says he can and the company needs someone with the family name while Tony doesn’t want that responsibility while he’s traveling with Anna. EJ adds that Chad never expressed interest while Johnny is too young and inexperienced. Kristen argues that there’s a DiMera right here which EJ laughs off and says he doesn’t think so.

Xander asks Sarah why it would be a bad idea for him to see Stefan. Sarah says he’s all free and clear now so she thinks it’s a bad idea to poke the bear. Xander feels he has to figure out who did this to him. Sarah says they are in this together. Xander thanks her and decides he’ll see about visiting Stefan tomorrow. Sarah jokes with him about bringing her cheese in bed which Xander promises to do every night as they kiss.

EJ says he’s off and asks if he can trust Kristen and Nicole to be there alone. Nicole decides she will go with EJ and he can drop her off in the town square as she could use some retail therapy and then they can have dinner out. EJ calls that perfect. Nicole says she will go check on Holly and let her know they are heading out. Nicole and EJ exit the room while Kristen grabs her phone and calls Mr. Shin, saying she thinks they need to have a talk.

Jada tells Stephanie that she really let her have it but it was all misguided anger as she’s not to blame for any of this and she believes that she had no idea Bobby was married. Jada hopes that Stephanie will forgive her someday when she’s ready. Stephanie admits the things that Jada said really hurt. Stephanie knows she was coming from a place of pain and wasn’t trying to hurt her, so she forgives her as she knows she was only trying to protect herself. Stephanie says they just process things differently. Jada calls Stephanie the calm and rational one while she’s a total hot head. Stephanie says she’s had her moments too. Jada says she’s been so wrapped up in her own world that she didn’t take time to think about how this was affecting Stephanie. Stephanie admits it’s been rough. Jada asks Stephanie if she’s furious with Everett. Stephanie confirms she is half the time, but the other half she’s thinking about what he must be going through. Jada asks if she believes his story. Stephanie says she doesn’t know but she feels for him, losing chunks of his life and identity while having nobody. Jada points out that he has Stephanie and guesses she still has feelings for him. Stephanie wishes it was that black and white.

Everett remains at the Spectator office and declares there is no escaping Robert Stein. Everett then grabs his phone and calls Marlena but it goes to voicemail. He leaves a message, saying he needs to see her.

Sloan meets Leo in the town square. Leo asks if this was really urgent since he has a pedicure. Sloan complains that he just had one and her baby comes first. Sloan talks about what Jude needs. Leo remarks that she should be on a budget. Sloan complains that she can’t keep hiding Leo’s expenses as her bank account is drained and she’s late on rent. Sloan points out that Leo is legit working now and compliments his article on Paulina. Leo is shocked that she didn’t insult him. Sloan calls him a decent writer and points out that he’s getting more assignments. Leo talks about those assignments costing money too. Sloan encourages him being a talented writer and asks for a little bit of help. Leo says because of his fondness for Jude, he will cut her allowance by 10%. Sloan was thinking 40%. Leo says they’ll meet in the middle at 25% only because she complimented his writing. Sloan hugs Leo and says he has no idea what this means to her.

Eric continues going over expenses and says he doesn’t get it as something’s not right here. Eric guesses that Sloan must have some big expenses that she’s not sharing with him. Eric declares that he’s going to get to the bottom of this.
