Sami apologizes to Hope and says she understands that she's angry for how she treated Ciara and she's sorry for it. Sami says that doesn't make her a suspect. Sami asks how Hope would react if she lost something that Bo gave to her. Sami says it doesn't make her guilty of anything. Hope points out that she never said she did. Hope apologizes and hugs her.

EJ returns home and heads into the living room where Sami is seated with work. Sami asks when he got there. EJ says just a moment ago. EJ mentions that he was there earlier while she was talking with Hope so he gave her some privacy. Sami thanks him and talks about getting work done. EJ mentions taking a walk down by the river. Sami says EJ obviously heard her conversation with Hope and says maybe she should've told him about the earring. Sami suggests a lot of things get left unsaid around here. Sami says all is well that ends well. EJ wonders if Sami lost anything else by the river aside from the earring. Sami tells EJ that she explained to Hope that she was never actually by the river. EJ calls it a coincidence. Sami asks what he's referring to. EJ reaches in his pocket and pulls out the tag from Nick's backpack. EJ says he found it by the river just a few feet from where Theo found her earring.
