Kayla assures him that she will be fine. Steve asks what if it doesn't go away. Kayla says she will have surgery then. Steve asks how this happened. Kayla admits it's from Ava knocking her out.
Abigail tells Chad to take Thomas. Chad goes over that Abigail plans to kill a human being and that's not her. Chad encourages her that Thomas needs them and Ben will never be able to hurt them again unless she murders him. Chad points out that Thomas would then grow up without a mother. Chad reminds her that the police are on their way. Abigail breaks down crying. Chad encourages that they won't let Ben destroy their lives as they are stronger than that. Chad agrees they don't have a lot of time. Ben begins to slowly make his way down the stairs while Chad is talking with Abigail.
Joey tells Jade that he feels like he shouldn't be away from his parents for a week when they are at it again. Jade goes over what happened the last time he tried to help his parents get together with Ava. Joey decides she's right that maybe they don't need his help.
Steve apologizes to Kayla. Kayla knows he's sorry. Steve blames himself for Ava ever being in their lives. Steve says he's understanding more why she can't get past the way he lives. Kayla asks for space instead of going around and around. Steve asks for a chance to help her through this. Kayla argues that she doesn't need him hovering as she took care of herself and Joey for a long time without him. Steve agrees that everything she is saying is true but she left out one thing; that she loves him. Steve states that she is in a serious situation so there is no reason to push him away other than fear. Kayla thinks she's earned the right to be fearful. Kayla doesn't blame him for what's happened but they can't erase the fact that she is in this bed because of the danger he brought in to their lives. Kayla adds that their son could go to prison for murder. Kayla declares she has learned the hard way that love does not conquer all. Kayla tells Steve to just go if he wants to help her. Steve reluctantly exits the room.
Chad continues to encourage Abigail as she cries. Abigail talks about thinking she was crazy when she saw Ben. Abigail admits to Chad that she made Ben think that she wanted to be with him in order to get him away from Thomas. Chad praises her for being smart and brave to keep Thomas safe. Abigail cries that she really wanted to hurt Ben so he would feel as much pain as he made them feel. Abigail tells Chad about stabbing Ben with the scissors and then tying him up and lihting him on fire. Chad tells her that he's sorry that he wasn't there and she had to do all of that alone. Chad tells her that she did what she had to do to protect Thomas in self defense. Abigail argues that it wasn't self defense as she wanted to kill him. Chad tries to stop her as she repeats it. Chad tells her to tell JJ that it was self defense because of how much Thomas needs her in his life. Ben makes his way to the bottom of the stairs where Chad catches him and knocks him out with a punch.
Steve talks with Fynn about Kayla's condition. Fynn tells him that Kayla told him not to talk about her condition so he goes back to Kayla's room. Steve looks in through the window. Fynn tells Kayla that he wants her to stay at the hospital for the night. Kayla assures that she will be careful at home and more comfortable. Kayla promises to come right back if anything happens. Fynn tells her to call any time. Kayla thanks him as he exits.
The police arrive, along with the ambulance. They strap Ben to the stretcher as JJ orders other cops to follow in a squad car and to shoot Ben if he makes a move. Ben tries to speak about what happened but JJ says he's a psycho so it doesn't matter what he says as they take him out. JJ tells Chad that Ben has second and third degree burns. Chad goes over the story that Ben dragged Abigail upstairs and she stabbed him in self defense. Lani says she wants to hear it from Abigail but Chad argues that she's in no condition to be questioned. Lani states that isn't his call. Chad responds that it his and blames the police for Abigail going through this. Chad threatens Lani with lawyers while JJ calms him down. Chad says he will only agree after Abigail has seen a doctor. Chad thought they would be treating Abigail as a victim instead of a witness. JJ asks if he can talk to her. Chad tells him to keep it short because she's exhausted. JJ heads in to the living room. JJ tells Abigail that it's over and Ben won't ever bother her again. JJ tells her that he loves her and Thomas, insisting that they will make sure everything is okay. JJ adds that he will stick around for awhile and say goodnight before he goes while Abigail remains silently looking at Thomas.
Steve walks outside of the town square and sits down on the bench. Steve looks at a photo of Kayla on his phone.
Kayla returns home to find Steve's flowers and note.
