Kate says it sounds like the board is pleased. Sami talks about continuing to liquidate Stefano and EJ's assets. Kate asks what she's planning now. Sami shows her a folder. Kate asks if she's seriously prepared to cross this line. Kate says it's one thing to go after Stefano's businesses but a whole different thing to humiliate him personally. Kate says Stefano has no choice but to accept what they are doing right now because they are bringing in record profits. Kate tells Sami to stick to destroying EJ. Sami asks if she wants more time to keep Jordan away from Rafe. Kate says Sami already took care of that for her. Sami tells her that she's welcome.

Rafe goes to see Jordan at the hospital.
Sami tells Kate that it's clear that she has a pathetic hope for a future with Rafe that isn't going to happen. Sami argues that Rafe only slept with Kate in the first place to get back at her for choosing EJ which is a big mistake. Sami says she was the love of Rafe's life and then he found comfort in Kate and then a crutch in Jordan. Kate questions Sami thinking Rafe is still in love with her. Sami asks if it's that hard to believe. Kate laughs at her and calls her the most delusional woman on Earth.

Victor tells Sonny that he had nothing to do with Will writing the story. Sonny argues that Victor knew the editor would give the story to Will.

Rafe argues that he wasn't thinking at all. Jordan feels Rafe felt he couldn't come to her while he was hurting. Rafe didn't want to let her down like he did Gabi. Jordan says he let her down now. Jordan tells him not to say what happened with Kate didn't mean anything because it meant a hell of a lot.

Ben praises her and says no matter what she does, she will be brilliant at it as they kiss.
Will works on his computer as Sonny returns home. They talk about Arianna. Sonny asks how the article is going. Will says it's slower as he asked EJ to come by and he said some things which made him question whether this is the right thing to do. Will says he doesn't want to hurt Sami but she's out of control. Will adds that maybe writing the expose isn't the best way and maybe she needs a voice of reason.
Adrienne doesn't believe Sami. Sami informs her that she found the proof in Stefano's safe while cleaning the house and they have a lot of information on a lot of people. Sami says her instinct was to burn the photos. Adrienne continues to accuse her of lying. Sami goes to put them away but Adrienne grabs the envelope and opens it. Adrienne sees inside that it's just Sami's wedding photos. Sami teases her that for a moment, she believed and now knows how Sami felt. Sami says it was a little taste of what it's like except for her it will never go away. Sami hopes Adrienne now understands why she is doing what she's doing. Sami warns her that if she can't understand then she should stay out of her way. Sami encourages her to show some compassion and think about Abigail's behavior. Adrienne declares she should've known it was a mistake to come. Sami agrees as Adrienne storms out.
Rafe knows he hurt Jordan and tells her how terrible he feels. Rafe wanted to be the one to tell her the truth and he was going to yesterday. Jordan asks if it was before or after he said he loved her. Rafe insists that he loves her with all of his heart. Jordan wishes she could believe it but says Sami was right all along that she was fooling herself. Jordan says she helped him get back on his feet and he was grateful until he didn't need her anymore. Rafe tries to stop her but she exits.
Kate meets EJ at the club and tells her about her and Sami's latest moves. EJ complains about needing his funds. Kate tells EJ that he no longer has a job, a home, or a family. EJ responds that she hasn't given him much choice.
Sonny suggests Will call the editor and say he no longer wants to do it. Will gets a call from Adrienne. She wants him to hear from her before Sami gets him involved. She tells him about Sami's mission to make Abigail pay. Will says he knows and asks what Sami did now. Adrienne informs Will that Sami forced Abigail to resign from the hospital or she would've made Kayla fire her.

Kate exits the club and runs into Jordan. Jordan asks if Kate thinks she won Rafe back. Kate says she was telling the truth that it was all her fault. Jordan calls every word of hers a lie.
Victor finds EJ in his living room. EJ brings up the idea he had of them working together. Victor questions him saying that and asks if he really bought his offer. EJ says he knows he called him to gloat. EJ tells Victor that he still stands to lose money if the companies he bought don't produce and he knows how to make them produce. EJ is willing to share his expertise with Victor if he's willing to do his part.
Will can't believe Sami would do that. Adrienne tells Will about Sami's lie about Justin and Kayla. Will says he's so sorry. Adrienne tells him that he has nothing to be sorry about as it's Sami who is a one woman destruction machine that is hellbent on destroying Abigail and anyone who defends her. Adrienne declares that Sami needs to be stopped. Will agrees and asks if she wants to talk to Sonny but she says she will call him later. Will thanks her and they hang up. Will tells Sonny that he's now made up his mind that he is definitely writing the article.
