Ben responds that Jordan is trouble and he thinks in her mind she believes she's doing something good. Hope asks him again about Ciara's phone as Ted appears behind Ben and tackles him, leading to a struggle over the gun.
Roman asks John if Leo knows he is his son. John says no and Diana wants to keep it that way as she doesn't want anyone to know but he can't keep that from Marlena.
