Kayla explains that the poison damaged Steve's cornea which is why he has blurred vision. Steve questions the antidote not reversing it. Kayla says the antidote stopped his body from attacking himself but can't undo the damage caused. Steve feels they caught it in time then since blurred vision is better than no vision at all. Kayla is afraid it's going to get progressively worse as it can be just a matter of time before he's completely blind.
Stefan tells Chad to go ahead and search every inch of his room while Abigail hides in the closet. Stefan opens drawers and tells Chad this is his big chance to find the murder weapon and prove he's a killer. Chad doesn't think he would be hiding it in here so he'll pass.

Chad states that he's going to turn his life upside down trying to prove his theory. Stefan tells him that he will expect an apology when he finds the truth. Chad then exits.
Claire plays the recording for Marlena and points out that Ciara freaked out when she thought Hope learned the truth of Rafe and Sami sleeping together. Marlena questions why Claire recorded that. Claire explains that she knew Ciara told Tripp a big secret and she thought it was about her or Theo so she felt she had no choice. Claire questions if she's the bad guy.

She tells him that she will come out when she can and she'll see him around as she exits the room.
