Deimos meets Victor in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Victor informs him that he is going to retire. Deimos asks if he's serious this time. Victor wants to spend more time with Maggie as she seems better already since he's been away from the office. Deimos asks who will run Titan now. Victor responds that he has a few ideas. Deimos gets a call and answers, instructing them to go right to the airport and call the minute he gets her. Victor asks what that was about. Deimos tells him that it's his child as he is the father of Chloe's baby. Victor asks if she admitted it or if his guy dug up the dirt. Deimos reveals that Nicole told him.
Nicole visits Daniel's grave and talks about how much she misses him. Nicole talks about helping Chloe keep her baby from Deimos but she came clean and now Chloe won't call her back while Deimos is furious so she's pretty sure she lost both of them. Maggie appears and says it sounds like she could use a friend.
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. Rafe tells Roman that the main thing would be getting Hope away from Aiden.
Aiden argues that this is nothing like what Chase did to Ciara. Hope calls it rape while Aiden says he would never. Hope insists that he is forcing himself on her. Hope points out that he is demanding and threatening while not caring how she feels. Hope asks if he's going to force her to have sex with him next. Aiden questions if she thinks he's capable of doing that and claims he would never do that to her.
Maggie tells Nicole that she didn't mean to eavesdrop. Nicole says it's okay as she could use a friend. Maggie asks what happened. Nicole explains that she found out Chloe's baby was Deimos' child and she begged her not to tell him and now Deimos is livid with her. Maggie asks how Deimos found out. Nicole admits she told him. Maggie knows she just wanted to make things right. Nicole feels terrible. Maggie asks how she feels about Deimos. Nicole doesn't want to talk about that here. Maggie encourages that Daniel would want her to be happy and move on. Nicole notes that Daniel and Deimos are so different. Nicole states that she does care about Deimos and the attraction is so intense it's scary. Maggie relates to feeling the same way about Victor and how she almost walked away in the beginning because of things Victor had done but there was another side to him. Nicole asks if it's enough. Maggie says she's glad she stuck it out because they've made a very good life together. Nicole hugs her as they cry.
Victor questions Deimos about Nicole telling him and jokes that he would double check. Deimos insists that Nicole wouldn't lie about this because it wouldn't serve her. Victor is glad it gets Philip off the hook and out of that mess. Deimos argues that Philip knew and played along with Chloe to stick it to him. Deimos says he needs to bring Chloe back and can't have Philip tipping her off. Victor calls it lucky that Nicole found out the truth but Deimos informs him that she knew all along. Victor says it makes sense with Nicole's history and tells him to ask her about 2012. Deimos knows she had made mistakes but he really thought they had something different.

They walk out of the town square together to talk. Nicole knows he can't understand why she didn't tell him about the baby and she doesn't know if she can get him to understand.

The district mayor argues that it's not a good time to lose any part of law enforcement.

Nicole asks Deimos to say anything. Deimos asks her what she had going on in 2012 like Victor said. Nicole informs him that she lost her baby then and she was determined to keep the father away from her child because she was scared. Nicole says that's why she slapped him when he said those things to her. Deimos says he didn't mean that but questions if she really believes that what she did was okay. Nicole admits she didn't but understood at the time why Chloe was hiding the truth. Nicole says she was wrong and keeping her baby from his father was probably part of the reason she lost him. Nicole wants to help Deimos and Chloe. Deimos argues that she doesn't want him to have a child with someone else. Nicole says that's not true as he has a child. Nicole thought maybe it wouldn't matter as much that she can't have a child. Deimos believed that she was his future. Nicole tells him it's not too late as the baby isn't even born yet so they can all still work together if Chloe will still speak to her. Deimos asks if Chloe is angry with her.

Roman assures they would've done everything they could to protect her as they hug. Aiden comes back and tells Roman that the deputy mayor wants to see him so he goes to see him. Aiden tells Rafe and Hope that he's sorry for all the trouble he caused them. Aiden adds that technically, he and Hope are still married so he will have the divorce papers drawn up and sent to her. Hope thanks him as he walks away. Rafe and Hope hug as Aiden looks on before exiting.
Kayla tells Ciara and Theo that the surgery went very well and Valerie did a great job.
