Steve meets with Belle in the town square and shows her the photos of Ava's shrine, calling it proof that she was coming after them. Steve points out that she had writing in blood on the pictures of Kayla. Steve insists that he killed Ava in self-defense. Belle says it doesn't prove a threat but it gives her something and does document that she was blackmailing and terrorizing him. Steve thought Belle would be more excited. Belle says she has to see what Justin thinks. Belle feels he wouldn't want to go trial and she exits to go see Justin.
John struggles with remaining handcuffed to a pole. Yo Ling talks about his time in China. He mentions tracking a bacterial disease and says that he has the same disease that Caroline had.

He admits that he hired someone else to do it for him. John blames him for Bo's death. Yo Ling remarks that Marlena and Arianna would have been collateral damage. He says sometimes lives are the price to be paid for the greater good.
Belle brings the photos to Justin as clear proof that Ava was a threat to Steve's family so she thinks he has to drop the charges. Justin calls her argument laughable and says no jury will acquit Steve when he explains self defense. Justin argues that he would be getting away with murder. Justin claims that Ava could have been dealt with by a restraining order or going to the police. Justin argues that it doesn't change the facts that Steve will have to stand trial for murder.

Joey tells Jade it's okay if she hates him. Joey states that what he did was horrible but letting his dad take the blame is even worse. Jade understands he was drunk and pushed to the edge. Jade says what Steve is doing is pretty great. Joey knows Steve loves him. Jade suggests he's doing what he thinks is right.

John asks what Yo Ling wants from him. He says it's something very personal.
