EJ notes that Sonny sounds like he wants to rip Nick apart. EJ asks what if he told him there may be a way to make Will's pain go away.
Gabi asks Nick what he did. Nick says Will knows his baby almost died because of Sami so maybe he signed his rights away to make sure she left them alone and now he's back with Sonny. Nick says it's exactly where they were before in putting the baby first and he'll be the father so the three of them can be the perfect family they dreamed of. Gabi says no and thinks Nick did something to make Will walk away from his daughter.
Will tells Sami that he doesn't think it's okay to take his daughter away from Gabi as he wants her to have both parents. Sami just wants to make sure he's in his daughter's life. Sami talks about the only evidence Nick has so if it disappears then he would have nothing and couldn't make the agreement stick. Will mocks the idea being simple.

Daniel worries about the thoughts that must have been in her head. Daniel says Chloe will have to answer for what she did but what's important is that he loves Jennifer. Daniel hates that he didn't listen to her before to know that there were bigger problems going on. Daniel apologizes to her. Jennifer says she can see how sorry he is but she still doesn't understand why Chloe apologized for what happened when nothing happened. Daniel informs Jennifer that Chloe came on to him and kissed him that night.
Sonny asks EJ what exactly he means. EJ says it seems that Will is accepting that Nick is calling the shots. Sonny doesn't see any other option.

Gabi brings up Nick saying he had something on the Hortons and never telling her what it was. Gabi asks if Nick blackmailed Will. Nick says he lost his mind after what Sami did.

Daniel says he thought he was finally clear with Chloe and wanted to forget the whole thing for Parker's sake. Daniel adds that that's what he thought Chloe apologized to her for. Jennifer says Chloe was just playing them against each other like she does. Daniel assures her that he loves her and has never been confused about that.

Will can't believe that Sami is moving back to the place where she shot EJ. Sami says she'd do anything for him.
