Marlena walks through the town square where she comes across Andre and Kate. She tells Andre that she has been looking for him. Andre asks what he has done now.

Kate comments on her judge of character so Andre responds by bringing up Kate sleeping with Clyde.
Steve rushes to the pier in a panic but finds a romantic table setup with lights and flowers as Kayla comes down the stairs. Steve admits she scared him by saying she needed help. Kayla says she didn't mean for that. Steve asks what this is all about. Kayla calls it new beginnings.
Rafe tells Hope that he knows about the dress and questions if Aiden is dressing her now. Hope stops him and understands he's upset. Hope tells him that he's only making things worse. Rafe remarks that he's going to kill Aiden because she doesn't deserve this. Rafe says there is no question that Aiden is sick and they can stop him together. Rafe asks her to just tell him how he found out about killing Stefano and then they will make a plan. Hope says no as she has to handle this her own way. Roman interrupts and tells Rafe that he needs to talk to him now as Lieutenant Raines wants him in his office. Rafe tells Hope not to do anything until he gets back as he heads to the office.
Kayla reminds Steve of how they used to spend a lot of time together on the pier when they first met. Kayla remembers it as a really nice place so she calls it the right place to start over. Steve is surprised feeling it's a little fast. Steve says he's not complaining as he had been campaigning hard for this but she wanted to take things slow and now this isn't slow. Kayla says after the past few weeks, she thinks going slow is presuming they have the time and she knows anything can happen so she wants to spend her time with him. Steve feels the same way and says they make a good team. Steve adds that he will never lose sight of that again as they toast their drinks.
Hope goes to Aiden's hotel room wearing the dress he got her. Aiden invites her in where he has a candle light dinner set up with bottles of wine. Hope wants to back to work but Aiden says he's already taken care of that by putting her in a conference with the DA. Hope states that she's not hungry. Aiden says they have all the time in the world and asks how she would like to start. Hope just wants to get it over with as they sit down at the table.
Rafe and Roman come out of the office with Roman calling it a waste of time. Rafe looks around for Hope but she's gone. Rafe checks her desk drawer and sees the dress is gone. Roman asks what it is. Rafe takes Roman in to the interrogation room to talk privately. Roman questions what's going on. Rafe says it was all a setup as Lieutenant Raines didn't want to see him, he just wanted him out of the way. Roman thinks he's being paranoid but Rafe says it's all because of Aiden. Roman tells Rafe to explain this. Rafe guesses he hasn't heard that Hope dumped him for Aiden. Roman questions why she would do that. Rafe informs Roman that Aiden is blackmailing Hope as he knows about Stefano which shocks Roman.
Andre asks Kate if he hit a nerve and says sometimes he can be indiscreet. Marlena felt like he was deliberately putting Kate down. Andre gets a call and steps away as Kate remarks that they should never do this again. Marlena sits with Kate and questions her about bickering with Andre. Kate comments on not getting close with a snake. Marlena advises her to be careful here because Andre's bravery does not mean she can trust him.
Aiden pours wine so they can toast to new beginnings but Hope doesn't go along. Aiden brings up the night of their first kiss. Hope points out that everything after that night was a lie which Aiden calls not true. Aiden tells her that he fell for her and he knows she fell for him. Hope says she will not forget what a fool she was to fall for him. Aiden insists that he's going to make it up to her because he loves her. Hope argues that this isn't love.
Roman goes over with Rafe that Aiden lied about closing Stefano's case and just wanted them to let their guard down. Rafe explains that Hope won't tell him how he found out but he knows she is with him now. Roman wants to go beat the crap out of Aiden. Rafe points out that Aiden knows they covered for Hope in Stefano's murder. Rafe wants to figure out a way and then decides he can confess to Stefano's murder which wipes away everything Aiden has against Hope.
Kate goes home to the Martin House where Eduardo joins her to ask how she's doing after her accident. Kate says she's okay and asks about him. Eduardo says he's been having some dark dreams but blames it on his responsibility for what happened. Eduardo talks about how bad he felt when Dario was hurt and can't imagine what Jennifer and Theo are going through. Kate encourages him to stop beating himself up because he only intended to protect his family. Kate asks if he plans to stay in Salem which he confirms. Kate says she's glad because she thinks it would be nice for them to have a chance to get to know each other. Eduardo calls that excellent as he has been thinking the same thing.
Steve and Kayla talk about how nice it is being together. They joke about not talking much but Steve admits he should talk more and adds that he will continue going to therapy because he thinks it will help keep him from screwing this up again. Steve assures that he's choosing to go so she isn't forcing him. Kayla surprises him with that she ordered the premium cable package so he can watch all the sports games from home. Steve feels it will be a great season and declares they are going to be a family again. Kayla responds that they were always a family but maybe now they can be happy. Steve recalls when he first met her and how he thought she was so out of his league which he says is still true. Kayla disagrees. Kayla asks him to dance with her so they get up and dance together.
Roman questions Rafe deciding to claim he killed Stefano. Rafe says it would clear Hope completely. Roman points out that it would send him to prison for life. Rafe argues he'll claim self defense but Roman says no one would believe it. Rafe says it doesn't matter what happens to him. Roman points out that Aiden will know he's lying so he'll turn it against him and Hope. Rafe argues that Aiden can't get away with this so he's going to stop him one way or another.
Aiden tells Hope they are going to work this out. Aiden hates himself for lying to her but says he will never lie to her again so they just need to get past all of that. Hope says there are plenty of reasons why they can't move past it all. Hope brings up how he lied to her repeatedly about so many things and worked for Stefano. Hope adds that she will never believe or trust him no matter what comes out of his mouth. Aiden plays the song they danced to at the gala and tells her to dance with him. Hope says no so Aiden plays the recording of her confessing to Stefano's murder on his phone. Hope then gets up and dances with Aiden.
Steve and Kayla continue dancing together. Kayla tells him this is heaven. They get interrupted by Kayla getting a text from the hospital so she has to go. They kiss goodbye and say I love you to each other.
Kate asks Eduardo if he's still in danger. Eduardo says probably as he gets closer to Kate. Kate guesses that is never going to change which Eduardo agrees with as he takes her by the hand.
Roman guarantees Aiden will do everything he can to bring them all down. Rafe says not Hope as he could've done that already but he cares for her in his own twisted way. Rafe adds that Aiden will never give up his hold on Hope. Roman doesn't think Rafe confessing would be enough as he needs someone to back him up which Hope wouldn't. Roman declares that he could by admitting he covered for Rafe. Rafe questions Roman giving up his life and career. Roman responds that Hope is family to him so they both need to do whatever it takes to help her.
Aiden continues dancing with Hope until she pushes him off and says she can't do this. Aiden tells her that she has no choice. Hope questions Aiden thinking he can force a woman to do what he wants whether she wants to or not. Hope says Aiden is so determined to have it his way but it's not happening this time. Hope declares that Aiden is not going to do to her what his son did to her daughter.
