Rafe feels the same and says they could use a good night sleep but he will miss her. Rafe says he will see her whenever is good for her. Hope suggests tomorrow after a good night sleep. Rafe tells her to take care. They say goodnight. Hope thanks him for everything as they hang up.
Aiden goes to the bed and breakfast but Julie tells him to get out now, believing he's the man who tried to murder Hope. Aiden explains that he's already spoken to Rafe, Roman, and Hope so it's all been a misunderstanding. Julie doesn't believe him and threatens him.

Maggie is with a friend from her meeting and tells her that she needs to go talk to Nicole. Maggie goes to Nicole and asks what it is. Nicole tells her it's Daniel as she misses him so much.

Julie suggests he stay somewhere else. Aiden says the Salem Inn is booked and he needs to stay in town. Roman says they need to keep tabs on him so he convinces Julie to let Aiden stay. Aiden tells her that she has nothing to worry about. Julie says they will see about that.
Maggie hates that her wheelchair invokes pity and sympathy sometimes which doesn't help her. Maggie says what matters is that she and Victor are alive while they have been through nothing compared to Nicole. Nicole says she lost Daniel but Deimos stole from her. Maggie suggests maybe God has another plan for her and Victor. Maggie doesn't want anyone, especially Nicole, risking Deimos' wrath.

Victor says if that wasn't enough, they have Summer in the guest room who he calls a bipolar con artist. Victor jokes about not having to lock the safe since they have nothing worth stealing. Justin questions fighting depression with anger and frustration. Justin wants them to be happy. Victor says he won't be until getting revenge on Deimos. Justin warns him about being stupid.

Kate calls him cunning and ruthless then asks what else she could ask for. Deimos asks why she would want a husband after all of her divorces. Kate says this time would be for love which Deimos laughs at. Kate says if they had souls, they would be soulmates. Kate encourages being spontaneous and flying to Vegas to tie the knot.
Rafe goes home and has a drink while looking out the window where he thinks back to he and Hope dancing together out there. Eduardo comes in and hopes he didn't mind that he let himself in. Eduardo mentions being with Adriana at the hospital and says she's worried about him as he was upset about something. Rafe says it was Gabi and Arianna being sick but Eduardo says that Adriana thinks there is something else. Rafe blows it off but Eduardo says he will listen if he ever wants to talk. Eduardo says he will tell Adriana that he's fine. Rafe brings up Dario thinking Eduardo got off easy so he said taking a bullet for him wasn't easy. Eduardo knows it doesn't make up for 30 years of neglect and turn him in to family so he knows he's still a stranger to them.

Rafe responds that it's a woman which doesn't surprise Eduardo.

Hope confirms to Julie that it really is Aiden. Julie explains Roman saying that he needs Aiden to stay in Salem because of unanswered questions.

Victor feels Justin's trying to get rid of him but Justin says he's trying to save his life.
Nicole goes to the Kiriakis Mansion and rings the doorbell. Deimos comments on the bell ringing after Kate's proposal. Kate says she told their butler that they wanted their privacy so no visitors but Nicole is brought in anyways.

Aiden gets settled in his hotel room.
Victor questions Justin warning him about Deimos while going ahead with his own mission. Justin talks about Victor sending Nicole to seduce Deimos who is capable of poisoning people.

Deimos asks Nicole why she stopped by. Nicole says she was shopping and found a Greek print so she asks him what the text on it means. Deimos translate it to "Love is composed of a single soul inhabiting two bodies." Nicole calls it beautiful and feels she has so much to learn from him. Deimos responds that he feels he could learn a thing or two from her as well while Kate watches on. Deimos reminds Nicole that he and Kate were in an important conversation so Nicole wishes them luck and exits.
Rafe talks to Eduardo about not going with his gut and letting Hope figure this out herself which he hates. Rafe doesn't like Aiden's story or his vibe, not believing he just came back to atone. Rafe questions Aiden not calling or writing and just showing up at her house to freak her out. Eduardo encourages Rafe to find out why his story isn't checking out but not to tell Hope until he has something concrete.
Hope tells Shawn that Aiden coming back is going to have a huge effect on everyone she loves like Shawn, Julie, and Rafe. Hope says all of that is nothing compared to what it could do to Ciara as it just hangs over both of them that she invited Chase into their home and lives. Shawn argues that she tried to do a good thing by helping Chase but it was too little, too late. Hope doesn't understand since Chase was a good kid and Aiden was a good father. Shawn questions that and if it just looked that way. Hope tells him that she needs to figure this out herself. Shawn knows it doesn't matter how he feels but he doesn't want her hurt again and can't stand that Aiden's come back to put her in this situation but he knows it's her decision.
Aiden falls asleep and dreams about when he was locked up and then to the night he got kidnapped until he wakes up in a panic.

Justin goes to the Kiriakis Mansion as Nicole is leaving. Justin asks her what's wrong now.
Kate gets that Deimos wants to play her and Nicole against each other but it doesn't give him the upper hand as she's been around too long to fall for that. Kate insists that Deimos is playing games. Deimos brings up her marriage proposal and questions her accusing him of playing games. Deimos doesn't think Kate's proposal was real but a test. Kate suggests it was both. Kate says she's going to ask an important question and depending on his answer, she will either talk to him later or leave right now. Kate asks Deimos if he is wasting her time.
Rafe tells Eduardo he was right that he's a good listener. Eduardo jokes about getting a free beer out of it. Eduardo says when he hears Rafe describe Hope, he pictures a woman genuinely struggling to do the right thing.
Hope asks Shawn if he would be upset if she gave Aiden the opportunity to prove himself. Shawn says that's not his decision but Hope asks if he would be upset. Shawn responds that he would be concerned and hopes she would proceed with caution while taking things very slowly. Hope knows she has to be careful.
Aiden sits up in bed, nervously looking around the room.

Nicole warns that if Justin or Victor do anything to mess with what she's put in motion, they will regret it. She tells him not to underestimate what she's capable of as she walks away.
Maggie tells Victor that she would go anywhere with him but questions why they are talking about it now and asks if something happened with Deimos. Victor says it was just a hypothetical question. Maggie repeats that she would go anywhere with him but she would never help him run away as then he wouldn't be Victor Kiriakis. Victor knew there was a reason he married her. Maggie says they are down but not out. Victor then calls Salem the best town in the world.
Deimos tells Kate that he doesn't like ultimatums. Kate doesn't care and wants to know if he's serious about this or if it's something he's just doing to prove to himself, Nicole, or Victor because if so, she's out. Deimos asks if she's finished so he can answer the only important question about tying the knot. Deimos says yes to her proposal to get married.
