Nicole and Dario hide in the closet as Kate walks around the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Kate starts to approach the door but Philip arrives to question what type of mess she has gotten in to this time.
Chad thinks what's bothering Ciara is that he came home wasted the other night and didn't show a good example of being a father. Ciara understands it's difficult every time he goes to see Abigail. Ciara feels it's like Abigail abandoned him but Chad argues against that, saying she will get better and come home. Chad declares if he loses faith in that, he loses faith in everything.

Kate pretends to cry about Deimos being gone and claims that they fell in love then went to Vegas and got married. Kate says she had everything she wanted and then it was gone forever. Kate says life goes on so she has to think about Titan being on her shoulders. Kate says she has to ask Philip to step in and they will make a great team as she needs him to be her co-CEO.

Steve screams at Simone to get out so she exits. Steve hugs Jade as she cries.

Kate screams at him to get out, calling him ungrateful and selfish for trying to hurt her more when her heart is broken. Philip mocks her tears and says he's not sure she really has a heart. Philip tells her to enjoy the money as he exits. Kate pulls out her phone and makes a call for someone to come quickly.

Nicole asks why. Dario suddenly kisses Nicole until the cop interrupts. Dario tells her he's been wanting to do that all night as the cop escorts him out of the room.
Kayla tells Steve that she has no clue what is next for them. Steve asks if she's sure about that. Kayla says he makes it so hard to push him away.
