At home, Theresa asks Brady if he's still mad about what happened yesterday. Brady says he's not. Theresa wants to take Tate to the park with her but Brady says no. Theresa thought he wasn't mad at her.
Rafe talks with Shawn at the police station and gets the file on the fire case from him. Shawn asks if he really wanted paperwork or if he wants to know what's going on with Hope and Aiden.

Aiden joins Hope in the living room of the lodge where Hope has breakfast made for him. Hope apologizes for last night since this was supposed to be a romantic getaway for them. Hope says she really honestly thought their wedding night was behind her. Aiden asks if she really wants to cut this short and go home. Aiden tells her it's time to go. Hope is sorry that he's disappointed but Aiden says he isn't. Aiden says he didn't come with expectations so a few nights alone with her is all he could ask for. Aiden thinks back to their talk the night before. Hope questions him being fine with the way things are and thinks he's lying.
Shawn asks Rafe what he thinks Aiden is lying about. Rafe says he just has a gut feeling since Aiden and Hope started with a lie so he can't let it go. Rafe asks what Shawn thinks since he has good instincts. Shawn says he has the same thought as Aiden wanted to start over. Rafe brings up Aiden buying a property out of town. Rafe informs him that he bought it from the DiMeras and reveals that Aiden visited Andre in prison while using a fake name. Rafe says Andre claims he only wanted to talk about the property. Shawn suggests it could be a cover up, questioning who would believe Andre. Rafe mentions seeing the documents and pictures of the property, wondering why Aiden bought it. Shawn agrees that it's weird but not criminal. Shawn says he has to remind himself that Hope is a smart woman and is loyal. Shawn talks about Hope never being as crazy about someone since Bo until Aiden came around. Shawn mentions them not getting married technically which Rafe questions.
Brady explains to Theresa that he doesn't want her taking Tate out because she's exhausted. Theresa invites him to come with them. Brady says he will make some calls and then meet them in the park. They kiss as Theresa exits with Tate. Summer then shows up at Brady's door. Brady thought she was gone. Summer says she couldn't leave until she gave him this as she gives him her bag full of money. Summer tells him it's the $50,000 she owed him. Brady questions if she really thinks money can make up for what she's done. Brady says there is no cost for what she's done.

Aiden says they would have taken a walk, had dinner together and then make love. Hope asks him what else.
Shawn tells Rafe that Hope loved Aiden enough to marry him. Rafe says that's how they can verify Aiden's version of the story because he says he was switched the night they got engaged which means Hope married a completely different guy. Rafe wants to have tests run.

Brady doesn't believe her and questions what she wants. Brady says he did nothing but try to help her since day one. Brady tells Summer not to go see Maggie because she's been through enough disappointment so nothing she says will make any difference. Summer questions if disappearing would be better. Brady says he will tell Maggie that she left town. Brady says there is nothing more for her to do as she blew it and didn't step up. Summer asks if he doesn't think she can change or help him. Summer suggests there is something she can do for him right now that he would be grateful for. Brady stops her and says he's not playing but Summer repeats that she can help him. Brady doesn't believe her. Summer grabs Brady and kisses him. Brady pushes her off as she shouts that they could've been so good together.
