In Jade's hospital room, Jade is told (by Kayla) that she's not responsible for Hal's actions. Joey's there, too. Jade hopes Hal makes it. Steve enters, says he has new info on Tripp. Jade is missing something, learns about Tripp being Joey's half-brother. Everyone at the hospital is nice because of Kayla; Jade thanks the family for having her back. A bit later, Joey has fetched some water, and Jade refuses to retract her groggy confession of love to Joey. His friendship and smile are precious to her. She goes on and on about how she doesn't want to be needy, has been reading about relationships, etc., as he grimaces uncomfortably. Joey does lay it on the line, says she's strong and brave, but he doesn't love her the way he thought he did, or that she loves him. He wants to be friends, they can still be roommates. Jade admits it hurts, but appreciates his telling the truth. Joey leaves, Jade cries. At the police station, Hope is showing "her cousin" Eli her desk. Raines enters, mocks Hope, tells her to get back to work. Eli wonders why Hope is chained to her desk as she avoids telling Eli why she's not on the good side of the force. Rafe, fresh from Deimos's (below) enters. Rafe asks if Eli knows Tim Carter, he does, good guy, the best. Eli is considering transferring to the "FBI post" in Salem. At the Kmansion, Deimos berates his goon for not finding Brady & Nicole. Rafe enters; he has questions for Deimos. Deimos shoos his goon. Rafe wants to know about the missing artifacts, thinks Titan is involved, intends to look in their warehouses. Rafe runs down the ongoing investigations, including Gabi's imprisonment, the stolen computer program, etc. Rafe promises to keep an eye on Deimos, leaves. In his office, laughing between the half-nude Chad and Gabi as Abby enters. She is not pleased. After a moment, the air is cleared; Gabi needs to talk to Abby about the benefit. The ladies leave; Chad chuckles. Deimos is enjoying some booze; the goon enters and asks if Rafe should be taken out. Later, Rafe and Hope talk about Eli transferring to Salem, Rafe could use the help nailing Deimos. He wants to take the snake down. He gets a call that the warehouses were a bust. Later, Hope intends to work overtime to prove herself to Raines. Rafe doesn't understand. In the Square, Abby talks about some of the donations (I need her working on my non profit, LOL) she's gotten, including free belly-dancing lessons because she promised they'd take 6 more classes. Chad arrives; Gabi chooses to skip lunch, leaves Chad and Abby alone, will meet them later. Meanwhile, Deimos has been lurking in the background. After lunch, Abby reluctantly goes to pack the bags for the benefit, she doesn't want to leave Chad. Kate slinks in and helps herself to a seat. Kate has Chad's back, decries Abby's lack of business acumen. Chad could find better, and Gabi is so right for him. Chad knows, needs something to change. Chad is committed to Abby and Thomas. Kate steps back, will be impartial, won't push Gabi, but questions how loyal Chad can be to Abby if he loves another woman. He resolves to come clean, Kate thinks this is a terrible idea. Don't break Abby's heart, blah blah. (Basically every idea Chad has, Kate plays devil's advocate.) Chad resolves to cut Gabi out of his life completely. He is resolute about telling Abby his feelings tonight. At the Pub, Steve tells Kayla that he's run Tripp through a thorough background check, kid has a record. Is she up for this? Kayla affirms that if Tripp's Steve's son, and wants to be part of this family, she'll be the first to welcome him. At the bag table, Gabi and Abby talk about Gabi's company and her decision to start it. Eli enters, Abby goes over to introduce herself. Eli doesn't recognise her name, so Abby says she's "Jennifer Horton Deveraux's" daughter, I'm "your second cousin." Eli acknowledges this, he's met so many people, catches sight of Gabi. She's not a Horton. (Nice scene, but Ed. Note: Eli and Abby are second cousins, once removed. Sorry, I had to say it.) He asks why they're there, they talk about the benefit Chad's throwing to which Gabi donated. Eli thinks lip balm is a bouncy ball. They laugh, Eli says he has good instincts. They talk about Eli's potentially moving to Salem for the FBI, Gabi reveals Rafe is her brother. Abby invites Eli to the benefit as Gabi's date, then takes it back, then pushes. They agree. An officer tells Hope that an alarm is going off at the Hernandez house (the security company must have called his desk) and Rafe can't be reached. Later, she has gone there, enters with gun drawn, sees broken dishes on the floor. She finds him in the bathtub, only way to get her here, the uniform was in on it. Kiss, smooch. Later, they're on Rafe's bed, she cuffs him to the headboard, leaves. Steve and Kayla meet Joey in the hospital by the nurse's station; Jade is sleeping. They tell him they're en route to the airport, they will deal with this together, let's not talk about how you murdered his mom. Joey also reveals that he leveled with Jade. He stops in to see Jade, who awakens, asks for pudding. Joey confirms they're good, goes to get the snack. Jade affirms that she will be with Joey. At the Kmansion, the Goon returns and finds Deimos is back. Deimos orders a change of focus, wants to target Chad. Later, Deimos is on the phone, wants her (Nicole?) brought back tonight. The goon brings in a briefcase. Deimos looks inside, Chad won't know what hit him.
