It shows Lexie talking in the garden about how she made videos for Theo and wanted to make one for Abe too.

Roman finishes a phone call with his contact and informs Rafe that he couldn't get the search warrant. Rafe states that without the warrant, they won't get EJ so they need it. Nicole arrives and tells Rafe that he doesn't need a warrant because he's got her and she has a surprise for him. Rafe reminds her that he told her not to get involved since this is an official murder investigation so they can't have people breaking in and stealing evidence. Nicole informs him that EJ invited her in so she didn't break in. Rafe questions if she stole something. Nicole says she might have since she found something to link EJ to Stefano's murder. Roman thinks they could have found it when they got the warrant. Nicole says they were never going to get the warrant with EJ's people. Nicole asks if they want what she found but Roman says they can't use it in court without the warrant. Nicole decides to leave but Rafe stops her. Roman reminds him that they can't use it. Rafe thinks Nicole is right that they will never get the warrant so they might as well look at what she got. Roman reluctantly agrees so Nicole reveals that she searched everything and found a box of bullets. Nicole asks what they think.
Ian questions what happened to Brady since he was so collected when he met him and now he's a mess. Brady tells him to stop and not put it on him since it's all his fault. Ian says they both know the truth that Brady can't handle the pressure of being with a woman out of his league. Brady assures him that Madison loves him. Ian questions if she will still love him with his addiction. Brady grabs the office phone off his desk and throws it across the room. Brady tells Ian that he's keeping Madison no matter what he does.
Rafe examines the box of bullets as Roman tells Nicole that they appreciate her effort but it's not really evidence since a lot of people have guns. Nicole recalls living with EJ and knows he wouldn't leave bullets around especially since when he wanted someone dead, he hired others. Rafe asks Nicole for a moment alone with Roman so she exits the room. Rafe tells Roman that they can't dismiss that EJ has a box of bullets that matches the murder weapon since a bullet is missing. Roman reminds him that the gun was Abe's and only fired once so he doesn't think it makes sense. Roman declares they have nothing here. Rafe thinks they at least have some interesting questions like why EJ has a box of bullets that fit the murder weapon and why was he hiding them.
Brady throws things in Ian's office and then sits down. Ian asks if he feels better which he says he does. Ian asks if he needs to get an ambulance. Brady tells him he's fine. Ian says he hates to leave him like this but he has a meeting to go to. Brady assures him he will let himself out. Ian stops before leaving and tells him that he will be billing him for all the damage. Brady grabs him and says he knows what he did and he's going to prove it. Ian wishes him luck and then exits as Brady slams the door behind him.
Kayla, EJ, John, Marlena, and Abe leave for Lexie's memorial. Abe stops and realizes he forgot his keys so he heads back in to get them. Abe looks at a family photo and says he misses Lexie and feels like half his heart is missing. Abe says he's going to keep the promise he made to Lexie to make her proud. Abe says he loves Lexie and then exits the house.
Nicole goes back in and asks Rafe and Roman if that closes the case. Rafe tells her that they can't do much since the bullets came to them illegally. Nicole thinks it proves EJ. Roman says they have nothing but Rafe thinks they have a link and need to figure out what it is. Nicole asks Rafe if he believes EJ is guilty. Rafe declares that he knows EJ is hiding something and is not going to stop until he finds out what it is.
