Sarah enters the Basic Black office and is shocked to find Kristen inside. Sarah asks why she's not in prison. Sarah then sees the wig and glasses nearby and realizes Kristen is pretending to be Susan Banks. Kristen knows it looks crazy. Sarah complains that Kristen broke out of prison again and is pretending to be someone else again. Kristen argues that she had to because Chloe is trying to steal Brady from her and there's no way she's going to let that happen.
Chloe joins Brady at the Pub and tells him about "Susan" bringing her flowers at the office and apologizing for being so rude to her. Brady admits he didn't see that coming. Chloe talks about how "Susan" said she felt guilty over Brady's shooting and took it out on her. Chloe says she'd rather Susan be her friend and adds that she's a bit more insightful than she gave her credit for. Chloe informs Brady that "Susan" helped her realize something that she wasn't admitting to herself. Brady asks what that is. Chloe thinks back to her conversation with "Susan" about her feelings for Brady.
Claire remains with Shawn as they wait for the ambulance after Shawn was shot. Shawn says he'll be fine and wishes he could say the same about Ciara. Shawn knows Ben is desperate to find Ciara but he wishes Ben would've waited for backup. Claire says so many people have tried to tear Ben and Ciara apart but their love is too strong. Claire believes somehow they will be together again.
Ben forces Christian to bring him to the room where Ciara has been held but when he pulls back the curtain, the room has fallen apart with no sign of Ciara. Ben then holds the gun on Christian and questions where Ciara is. Christian guesses she is underneath the rubble. Ben questions what he did to her. Christian explains that when he left, Ciara was alive and well but it looks like she found a way to blow the place up. Ben demands Christian let him in to the room. Christian responds that it looks kind of unstable. Ben insists so Christian allows him in but warns that he doesn't think he will like what he sees. Ben enters and screams for Ciara. Christian remarks that they need to get out and he can come back for Ciara's corpse some other time. Ben then knocks Christian out with a punch and declares he's not going anywhere without his wife as he begins searching for Ciara.
Sarah questions Kristen as to how long this has been going on. Kristen says it's been a couple of weeks. Sarah realizes this is why Chloe said Susan was being so possessive over Brady. Kristen complains that Chloe can't stay away from Brady and whenever she turns around, she's seductively changing Brady's bandages. Sarah tells her that Chloe and Brady are just friends and co-workers. Kristen feels Chloe is using Basic Black as an excuse to stop by and get in Brady's bed. Sarah tells Kristen that Chloe told her that Kristen is the only woman that Brady loves. Kristen responds that it's not what Chloe told her which Sarah questions. Kristen explains how she pretended to be Susan and apologized to Chloe then over the course of their conversation, she asked Chloe if she's in love with Brady. Kristen says Chloe denied it at first but then admitted that she wants Brady. Kristen adds that Chloe and Brady are having dinner together right now which means Chloe's plan is working. Kristen worries that Chloe will try every trick to steal Brady from her.
Brady asks Chloe if she's okay. Chloe says she is. Brady points out that she's blushing and he doesn't know why. Brady assures there's nothing she can't say to him. Xander and Jack then enter the Pub. Xander excitedly announces he's buying drinks for everybody because tomorrow is his big fat Greek wedding. Chloe remarks that Xander doesn't have any friends so she questions how he's having a big wedding. Xander admits it's a rather intimate affair. Brady says he doesn't care. Xander wants to thank them for Sarah getting her dress from Basic Black so he offers to buy them shots. Brady reminds him that he doesn't drink and says if he did, he wouldn't want to drink with him. Chloe remarks that she told Sarah that it was a huge mistake to marry Xander but she wouldn't listen to her. Brady and Chloe then exit the Pub together. Xander decides that's just more drinks for he and Jack then.
Sarah asks Kristen what happened to the real Susan Banks. Kristen assures that she did not kill Susan and that Susan is in prison, looking exactly like her. Sarah questions Kristen forcing Susan to switch places. Kristen insists that Susan volunteered. Kristen claims that Susan understood Chloe trying to steal Brady was wrong so she jumped at the chance to help her. Sarah argues that she can't keep this up forever so she asks what her plan is. Kristen responds that she wants Chloe to stay away from Brady and to drive home the message that she needs to back off. Sarah doesn't like this. Kristen swears that Susan wants to help her but no one can know what they are up to. Kristen asks Sarah to keep her secret. Sarah responds that she's sorry but she can't.
Ben digs through the rubble, yelling for Ciara to hang on because he can feel that she's close and that she's still alive.
Kristen questions Sarah saying she can't keep her secret and tells her to just pretend she never saw her. Sarah says that's not possible. Kristen asks why not when she gave Xander a pass. Sarah remarks that Xander changed. Kristen questions if she believes that. Sarah informs her that she is marrying Xander tomorrow which shocks Kristen. Sarah adds that she came here to pick up her wedding dress. Sarah declares that she loves Xander with all her heart. Sarah knows Xander did terrible things, just like Kristen and he became a different person.

Claire and Belle get Shawn set up in a hospital bed. Belle talks about being floored to hear that Ciara is alive. Claire prays that Ciara is okay and mentions Ben taking Christian/Evan off at gunpoint. Belle worries about the fact that Christian had the gun pointed at Claire. Shawn assures that he already told Claire to never take a risk like that again but notes that Belle would've made the same moves. Belle is just glad they are okay. Shawn declares that he has to get out of here and go help Ben find Ciara.

Sarah adds that she's sure Brady feels the same way. Kristen tells Sarah to go ahead and throw her life away but she's not letting her walk out the door without swearing not to tell anyone that she is masquerading as Susan.

Kristen claims she just needs to keep an eye on things. Kristen swears that she's not going to do anything. Sarah wishes she could believe that but restraint is not exactly Kristen's strong suit.
