Ciara asks if Chad called her but he asks why he would do that. Chad steps away to let them talk. Hope says she came on her own and wanted to talk. Ciara is sick of talking and says she's either getting her own place or one with Claire because she can't live with her anymore. Hope doesn't think this is the best time for Ciara to be on her own but Ciara does and says she's 19 so she can't stop her. Chad interjects to suggest letting Ciara live in the guest house. Ciara is excited. Hope tries to argue but agrees to try and be okay with it. Ciara asks if Claire can share with her. Chad says sure while Hope points out that it's up to Shawn and Belle. Ciara thanks them and goes to call Claire. Hope tells Chad that she doesn't like the idea because she doesn't want Ciara moving out but at least she knows she will be safe here. Hope knows Chad is not like Stefano otherwise Abigail never would have fallen in love with him.
Kayla returns to the hospital where Fynn asks how it went with Steve. Kayla says it went about as bad as it possibly could.
Steve sits in his hotel room looking at a photo of he and Kayla when Joey arrives. Steve says it's good to see him. Joey jokes that all he seems to do is screw up these days. Steve knows what he's dealing with. Joey talks about how he can't stop seeing killing Ava in his head. Steve blames himself for Ava being here and encourages Joey to get help from a therapist. Joey cries that he should've told the truth as being sent to prison would've been better than how he feels now. Joey feels that would have been taking his punishment like a man. Steve argues that he's still a kid. Joey says all he can do to keep sane is keep moving. Steve asks what that means and what he's not telling him.
Kayla calls this one of her worst days ever after Joey's arrest and then getting in a big fight with Steve.

Steve says he would do it again in a heartbeat. Joey says he loves him as they hug. Joey then exits.
Hope returns to the station and apologizes to Rafe for taking so long. Rafe asks if she saw Ciara and how it went. Hope says she heard what he said loud and clear so she decided he's right that the best way to not lose Ciara is to step back so that is what she is going to try to do.
Ciara greets Theo at the DiMera Mansion and asks what he's doing here since Abe will kill him. Theo says he'll just be mad but he doesn't care because he can't stop him from being with her since she means too much to him. Theo tells Ciara that he loves her and always has as they kiss.
