Hope tells Rafe not to make this more difficult. Hope says she cares a lot but not as much as Rafe feels for her. Rafe still doesn't buy it. Rafe reminds her that he's his partner so he knows what she's thinking before she thinks it and questions what's going on. Hope says they don't have time for this.

Kate begins talking to Marlena about not believing Jordan when it came to all the things she said Clyde did to her as far as abuse. Kate thought Jordan was just making up lies for revenge on Clyde. Marlena asks if she saw any indication that Clyde could be violent. Kate says no as he had a really good act. Chad argues that Clyde is now very out of control as he got crazier and crazier.

Kate believes taking Thomas is Clyde's ultimate goal which Chad says will happen over his dead body.
Clyde tells Orpheus that he was arrogant and lost track of what's important when all that's really important is family.

Hope says it's complicated. Rafe brings up Hope being unable to tell him what Aiden whispered to her before Abe got shot. Hope argues that this is why she needs a break and she's tired of Rafe telling her he knows her better than she knows herself.
