At the Brady Pub, Rafe asks Austin about staying with them after getting him fired. Austin continues to tell him that he didn't turn him in. Austin tells Sami it's his fault and he shouldn't have accepted her offer in the first place because he'd still have his hotel room and wouldn't have to worry about hotels being booked.

Rafe suggests Austin stay with his mother Kate at the DiMera mansion but Austin tells him that doesn't work for him.

Jennifer tells Daniel that she doesn't know what to say. Daniel says a huge part of him thinks she should be in his arms and they should be together all day long.
