When Rafe was ready to leave, Carrie stopped him.  They talked about things ending the way they did.  Carrie brought up how he got Nicole pregnant.  Bo opened up to Hope about his experience with Zack.  Bo didnít want to leave Zack, but Zack told him he had to go back.  Zack told Bo he would see him again.  After that, Bo opened his eyes.  Hope suggested that they continue their therapy with Marlena.  Bo was willing to do it to make their marriage better and stronger.  When EJ went back to the mansion, he wanted Stefano to show him what he was going to show him.  Stefano didnít have time to show him.  Stefano had to take care of something.  EJ brought up how Johnís name was cleared.  Stefano wanted to know why he brought that up.  EJ said Stefano stole Johnís money and got him out of jail.  Stefano said a father would never betray his son the way EJ is accusing him of doing.  EJ said he did betray him by stealing the money and taking the election from him.  Stefano said those things were lessons.  They talked for a little while until Stefano left.  While Sami and Lucas were talking about EJ asking about Johnís trial, she got a text saying that Countess Wís biggest clients were canceling their summer orders because Kate was no longer in charge.  Lucas said they would fix the problem.  Rafe and Carrie continued to talk about Nicoleís pregnancy.  Carrie wanted to know what Rafe wanted to tell her about the baby.  She said it was his last chance to say something.  Lucas was able to save the day with the Countess W customers.  While EJ was searching through drawers, he found an envelope taped to the bottom of the drawer.  He read the letter and was in shock.  Rafe told Carrie that he never meant to hurt her.  Carrie didnít want to listen to him anymore.  Carrie was ready to leave the safe house.  John stopped Carrie from leaving because they didnít disarm the system.  Agent Harmon was on his phone and asked if everything was all set.  He was happy that it was.  While John was keying the code, Agent Harmon could be heard saying that the next time a window or door was opened, everyone in the safe house would die.
