Claire is upset with herself as she cries that she had his confession recorded and should've just grabbed her phone and ran. Belle cries that she's just glad Claire is okay, knowing what Charlie is capable of.
Charlie informs John that Claire called and invited him over to her place, saying she wanted to give their relationship another shot but it was all a lie as she was just trying to trick him in to confessing to a crime he didn't commit. John asks what he means. Charlie tells him that Claire said she can't be with him unless he's honest and admitted he's a rapist. John calls him a rapist but Charlie says he's not. Charlie claims he couldn't figure out why Claire was trying so hard to get him to say that he was but she had her phone recording the entire time. Charlie says he noticed or else Claire would have gotten him thrown back in jail. John tells him that he's going back to jail no doubt about it. Charlie argues that the police have nothing on him and neither does Claire. Charlie says Claire could've ruined his life but he stopped her. John grabs him and asks what he did to his granddaughter.

Claire cries that she had him and could've nailed Charlie to the wall and got Allie her justice but she blew it and she's sorry. Allie tells her that she's so grateful that she tried.

Rafe tells Ava to make herself at home as he finishes up work on his laptop. Rafe adds that she can help herself to food whenever she wants. Ava thanks Rafe for his generosity but assures she will be out of here as soon as possible. Ava says once they set a court date for Charlie, she will testify so he will go to prison and then it will be safe for her to go home. Ava knows Rafe didn't want her to stay here and that Nicole had to strong arm him in to it. Rafe tells her it's okay so she thanks him. Ava brings up the court system not being known for it's speed so she's thinking that as much as she wants to be out in a couple days, it might not end up that way. Ava thinks since they will be living together for awhile, that it might be good that they are honest with each other. Ava tells Rafe to just admit that he thinks she's a horrible person.

Charlie asks her to get out of his way but Nicole refuses. Nicole says she will be in his way until he gets what's coming to him. Charlie asks why they can't leave him alone. Nicole says it's because he's guilty and she's sure he feels good about lying about what happened with Allie to the cops so they let him go. Nicole warns that he's living on borrowed time. Charlie keeps asking her to move so he can go in. Nicole responds that Allie may not have been able to send him to prison but Ava will and tells him to stay the hell away from her.

Claire worries that their only chance might have disappeared with the confession. Allie brings up Ava being considered not a reliable witness. Claire asks if it's just over then. Allie responds not necessarily as it maybe time she stops relying on everyone else and just deals with him herself.
Ava tells Rafe that she had a serious conversation with Nicole while in the hospital about her future and her past. Ava says that Nicole basically told her that if she doesn't make big changes to her life, she will jeopardize everything that matters to her including her relationship with Tripp. Ava talks about how a mother is supposed to set a good example for her child but she's done the exact opposite. Ava says Tripp still wants to be close even though she didn't raise him. Ava just wants to be worthy of his love so she wants to take this second chance to be a better person for her son.
Tripp did not like how Charlie was talking. Steve tells him to forget it as he's full of it. Tripp felt he seemed pretty serious. Steve says Charlie just lashed out after hearing Tripp wanted to be part of Henry's life. Steve guarantees Charlie doesn't want to be a father. Tripp feels since he hates them all, Charlie might sue for custody out of spite. Steve argues that they don't grant custody to rapists. Tripp points out that he got off by lying so what's to stop him from telling a judge the same thing.
Nicole comes out with a suitcase causing Charlie to question where Ava is. Nicole responds that she's not here and she wouldn't tell him if she was. Charlie argues that Ava is not the victim here and that everything that has happened is her fault. Nicole brings up Charlie raping Allie. Charlie says he wouldn't have met Allie if Ava wouldn't have sent him to London to spy on Tripp. Charlie complains about how humiliating that was and declares that Ava's obsession with Tripp has ruined his life. Charlie adds that Tripp stole his mother's love from him and now he wants to steal his son. Nicole questions what he's talking about. Charlie tells her to tell Ava that if she thinks she's going to testify against him, she has another thing coming. Nicole tells Charlie that the drugs Charlie gave Ava still give her hallucinations. Charlie argues that she's always been crazy and asks why else she would choose Tripp over him. Charlie complains that he is the devoted and caring son who tried to make Ava proud while Tripp got everything and he got nothing. Charlie declares that Tripp thinks he's going to raise his son but that's not going to happen. Nicole asks why Tripp would want to raise Henry. Charlie complains that he heard Tripp say that Henry needed him as if he isn't enough. Charlie remarks that he'd rather see Tripp dead than anywhere near his son. Charlie then says that's not a bad idea. Nicole questions if he just threatened to kill his own brother. Charlie asks why not, saying that with Tripp out of the picture then maybe Ava would finally have enough love for him. Charlie then walks away, leaving Nicole shocked.
Belle says she knows Claire's heart was in the right place but she made her promise to never take a risk like that again. John says he would've strangled Charlie if he walked in. Marlena tells him to stay calm, thinking Claire is sleeping. John yells about Charlie targeting both of his granddaughters.

Shawn thanks them for coming. Marlena says to let them know what happens in court as she and John exit. Shawn decides to call Rafe to let him know everything that happened. Shawn asks Belle to go check on Claire.
Nicole returns to Rafe's with Ava's belongings. Ava thanks her while Rafe asks Nicole what's wrong. Nicole says nothing but Rafe and Ava see that's not true so Ava asks what's going on. Nicole reveals that when she left Ava's apartment, Charlie showed up, but she made it clear that he is to stay away from Ava. Rafe asks if she's okay. Nicole say she's fine.

Steve says he can't keep going and his road will have to end sometime. Tripp doesn't see how if he's going after Henry.

Tripp declares that he's not taking that chance with an innocent baby. Steve asks what he can do. Tripp says he doesn't know but he's going to figure out something fast.
Ava tells Nicole that there is no way Charlie will hurt Tripp. Nicole says she will fill Rafe in as soon as he's off the phone. Ava worries that Charlie made a serious threat but Nicole says they need to let the police handle it. Ava declares that she's going to handle it. Nicole asks what that means. Ava responds that she brought Charlie into this world so maybe she needs to take him out..
Marlena and John go home. Marlena checks on John and notes his blood pressure is elevated. John can't stop thinking about how Charlie got away with what he did to Allie and Claire. Marlena says she's frustrated too but getting angry won't change anything. Marlena encourages John to relax and goes to make him some tea. John then gets up, grabs his keys, and exits the house.
Belle comes back to Shawn and informs him that Claire is gone.
Claire tells Allie that she can't do this. Allie argues that she knows where Kate keeps her gun and where Charlie lives so she asks why she shouldn't. Claire worries that she will get put in prison and Henry won't have a mother while her life will be over. Allie says not if she gets away with it.
Charlie paces at home, complaining that they are all out to get him but says they can't stop him or take what is his as he won't let them. There's a knock at his door so Charlie answers it. Charlie puts his hands in the air and tells them not to shoot...
