Lucas goes to his room and calls Sami. Sami complains that she had been texting him all day. Lucas tells her that he had to put his phone on vibrate so Chloe wouldn't hear. Sami questions Chloe still being there. Lucas says that's because Chloe thinks he's dying. Sami suggests it could actually work. Lucas asks what Chloe's going to do when she finds out he's not sick. Chloe then enters his room.
Brady and Nicole work at Basic Black. Nicole looks at the teddy bear that she and Rafe got, then she thinks back to arguing with Ava about Ava's relationship with Rafe, where Ava accused Nicole of wanting Rafe for herself. Brady notes Nicole being distracted and asks where she went.
Rafe comes home, where Ava is cleaning. Rafe notes that it smells good. Ava tells him that her lasagna will be done in 20 minutes and suggests he pour a glass of wine. Rafe says he could get used to this. Ava asks how his day was. Rafe admits it was not great as Melinda came up with more evidence, tying Belle to Charlie's murder. Ava brings up that Rafe thought Belle had nothing to do with it. Rafe says that Melinda is more convinced now and he's worried that she's going to shut down the investigation too soon. Rafe and Ava toast their glasses of wine and take a drink. Ava calls Rafe a good guy, who always wants to do the right thing. Rafe thinks they need to talk about what happened earlier. Ava asks if he means when he kissed her.
Abigail enters Gwen's hospital room. Chad informs Abigail that Gwen lost the baby. Abigail says she's so sorry. Gwen argues that it's exactly what Abigail wanted to happen. Abigail claims it's not and that she was trying to keep Gwen from going downstairs but she pulled away and it was an accident. Gwen accuses Abigail of pushing her down the stairs on purpose and killed their baby. Abigail says it's not true that she pushed her.
Nicole tells Brady that she was just thinking about projected summer sales. Brady argues that she's been distracted all day so he wants to know what's going on and hopes she's not trying to figure out a way to push he and Chloe together again.
Lucas tells Sami he has to go and hangs up. Kristen as "Susan" then comes home and asks Sami if Lucas just hung up on her. Kristen hopes it's not a sign, because of Lucas doesn't keep Chloe away from Brady then she will call EJ to tell him about her night with Lucas.
Gwen questions Abigail denying what she did. Abigail insists that she didn't push her down the stairs. Gwen argues that Abigail went mad the moment she saw her. Abigail argues that she was trespassing. Gwen says she needed to talk to Chad and then Abigail attacked her. Abigail says she just told her to leave. Gwen tells Chad that Abigail said horrible things about their baby and then she wouldn't let her leave and then pushed her down the stairs. Abigail insists that's not how it happened.
Ava says she knows Rafe is not the biggest fan of talking. Rafe just wants to make sure he wasn't taking advantage of the situation. Ava says Rafe has so much on his plate to worry about so he doesn't need to worry about her too. Rafe jokes that he's not good talking about it. Ava says she will handle it and goes over how Rafe just found out that Hope wasn't coming home, so he acted without thinking and now he's trying to figure out how to let her down easy. Ava tells Rafe not to worry, because she's pretty tough. Rafe tells her that he didn't kiss her because of how he felt about Hope, but because of how he feels about her.
Nicole tells Brady that she does think he'd be happier with Chloe than Kristen but she knows how he feels, so she will back off. Nicole adds that she can't push him to seeing the truth about Kristen, but remarks that one day her mask will fall off. Brady argues that Nicole doesn't know what backing off means. Nicole agrees and promises from now on she will, even if he is being a damn fool.
Sami tells Kristen that she gets that she's going to call EJ if she doesn't keep Chloe from Brady, so she doesn't have to keep reminding her over and over. Kristen warns her about banking her marriage on Lucas's charms. Kristen doesn't think Chloe is as needy and vulnerable as Sami is. Kristen warns Sami that she wants to stay on her good side. Sami tells Kristen that Chloe has dropped everything to be by Lucas's side and is waiting on him, hand and foot. Kristen asks why she's waiting on him, feeling that doesn't sound romantic. Sami tells her not to judge. Kristen questions what she's not telling her and threatens to call EJ. Sami then reveals that Chloe thinks that Lucas has a brain tumor. Kristen asks why she would think that. Sami admits that Lucas told her that he has a brain tumor.
Abigail says that Gwen is lying as she did not push her down the stairs and it was an accident. Gwen asks if it was an accident that Abigail chased her out of the room and grabbed her arm because she said she needed to speak to Chad. Gwen adds that Abigail said to her face that she wished their baby didn't exist. Abigail argues that's not what she said. Gwen accuses Abigail of taking care of it herself, because whatever Abigail wants, she gets. Gwen argues that Abigail has their father and her two children while she has nothing. Abigail repeats that she's sorry but Gwen calls her a liar. Gwen declares that Abigail asked her to abort the baby and when she wouldn't, Abigail decided to do it herself. Gwen calls Abigail a murderer. Chad asks Abigail to go. Abigail insists that she did not push her while Gwen continues accusing her. Chad tells Abigail that they will talk about it later. Abigail repeats that she's not lying as she exits the room.
Kristen questions Lucas telling Chloe that he has a brain tumor. Sami admits it's not how she would've handled things but it seems to be working. Sami complains that she's giving her good news about keeping Chloe from Brady so Kristen should be thanking her. Kristen concedes that Lucas has gotten Chloe's attention but points out that Chad used the same scheme and it blew up in his face. Kristen argues that people with brain tumors usually get sicker and need a doctor so she questions how Lucas will explain that away. Sami assures that Lucas will think of something.
Chloe informs Lucas that she managed to talk Dr. Dunn in to staying in Salem tonight but he has to get back to New York tomorrow so their appointment is early in the morning and they will redo all his tests. Chloe says she will clear her schedule for tomorrow. Lucas says she doesn't have to but Chloe doesn't trust him to go alone so she's going to the office to take the day off. Lucas comments that she thought of everything.
Jack tells Jennifer that he's going to see what he can find out about the baby and hangs up. Abigail comes from Gwen's room so Jack asks what's going on. Abigail confirms that Gwen lost the baby and is saying that it's her fault.
Gwen asks if Chad doesn't believe her and that he's on Abigail's side that she's making all of this up. Chad thinks she's really upset. Gwen remarks that the news was horrible for her but an answer to Chad's prayers.
Rafe wanted Ava to know that she wasn't just a substitute. They joke about being terrible at talking about it. Rafe calls it an awkward situation as she moved in and they got to know each other. Rafe tells her that they can just forget about what happened earlier if she wants. Ava responds that she doesn't want to forget about it and calls it the nicest thing that's happened to her in a very long time. Rafe points out that a lot of bad things have happened to her in the last few months so the bar is really low. Ava assures Rafe that it was very nice, but after he left, she told Nicole what happened and she did not think it was a very good idea.
Chloe goes to the Basic Black office and greets Brady and Nicole. Chloe apologizes for not showing up to work and says something came up. Nicole asks if everything is okay. Chloe says not really as a friend of hers got some bad news so she wanted to ask for tomorrow off as well. Brady agrees to give her the day off. Brady notes that he has to go too so he can go see Rachel. Chloe then gives Brady a birthday present for Rachel. Brady says she didn't have to while Nicole calls it very thoughtful. Brady tells Nicole that he will see her tomorrow and exits the office. Chloe asks Nicole what she missed.
Kristen doesn't have the same faith in Lucas as Sami does. Sami argues that Lucas is keeping Chloe from Brady so Kristen can keep it to herself. Kristen argues that she sent a puppy to a man's job. Sami then gets a call from Lucas. Lucas complains that he has an appointment with a cancer specialist tomorrow because Chloe rescheduled everything so he has to go. Kristen asks Sami if Lucas screwed up. Lucas blames Sami for everything. Sami tells Kristen to stop interrupting. Lucas informs Sami that the doctor is staying in town just to see him and asks what's going to happen when they run the tests and find out that nothing is wrong with him. Sami encourages that Lucas will think of something. Lucas tells Sami to find something because it's no skin off his teeth if EJ finds out about them. Sami claims for Kristen that Lucas has come up with something. Lucas asks what Sami wants him to do. Sami tells Lucas that she's hanging up to tell Kristen the good news. Lucas argues that there's only terrible news and questions why he had to walk in to Sami's bed room. Sami hangs up and tells Kristen that everything is fine. Kristen says they'll see about that.
Jack questions it being Abigail's fault and calls it an accident. Abigail says that Gwen just told Chad that she pushed her down the stairs because she wanted her to lose the baby. Abigail insists it's not true and that they just argued and Gwen pulled away then fell. Abigail asks if Jack believes her.
Chad tells Gwen it's not true. Gwen argues that it has to be because Chad hates her but the baby tied her to him forever and now thanks to Abigail, he's free. Chad doesn't think they should be talking about this right now. Gwen feels it's the only chance she has because this is probably the last time she is going to see him. Chad asks what she's talking about. Gwen points out that there's no baby now, so they can all just get rid of her and move on like nothing ever happened. Chad argues that after what she did to their family, they could never just move on like nothing happened. Gwen complains that Chad does hate her and is glad the baby is dead. Chad tells her to stop telling him how feels. Chad says he feels horrible about the baby and her pain but he did not want the baby to die. Gwen then says she knew he was happy when she told him the news. Chad says he was not happy but he just doesn't think children should be brought in to the world because of revenge and he hates that she tricked him. Chad adds that they didn't decide to have a baby or talk about how it should be raised. Chad admits that he may not have handled it the best when she told him but it wasn't an ideal situation. Chad declares that he would never have let what happened to her, happen to any child of his, so he would've taken care of the baby and loved her.
Sami suggests she and Kristen stick to separate corners. Brady then comes home and says he didn't expect to see Sami and "Susan" together. "Susan" says they were just talking about EJ. Sami claims she was filling her in on his progress. "Susan" questions the gift in Brady's hand which he explains is from Chloe to Rachel. "Susan" questions when he saw Chloe. Brady reminds her that they work together. "Susan" points out that they were at the office together and repeats that to Sami.
Nicole tells Chloe that Brady accused her of plotting to put them together and then he told her to butt out. Chloe thanks her for sticking up for her but thinks Brady is right that they should all just stick to business. Nicole agrees to stay out of other people's lives, Chloe and Brady, and Ava and Rafe. Chloe questions what is going on with Ava and Rafe.
Rafe asks Ava why Nicole would even care. Ava thinks Nicole was worried that she was taking advantage while Rafe was vulnerable because of Hope. Rafe feels if anyone was using anyone, it was him since he kissed her. Ava brings up that Rafe's a cop and she was mafia so she doesn't think that Nicole thinks they're right for each other. Rafe feels that doesn't seem like Nicole to bring up someone's past, especially to get worked up over a kiss. Rafe asks why Nicole even cares about what they do. Ava thinks back to accusing Nicole of wanting Rafe for herself. Rafe asks if there is something Ava is not telling him.
Nicole explains to Chloe that Ava told her that Rafe found out Hope wasn't coming back and he was upset so she comforted him and they ended up kissing. Chloe says that happens sometimes but notes that Nicole doesn't look happy about it. Nicole doesn't feel they are made for each other. Chloe jokes that they are kind of in the same business just on opposite ends. Nicole tells her this is not funny so Chloe apologizes. Chloe asks if Nicole shared her concerns with Ava. Nicole says it just kind of came out but she shouldn't have said anything because Ava took it the wrong way. Chloe asks what was the right way to take it. Nicole argues that they are from two different worlds and both are vulnerable so a relationship could end with unfortunate consequences. Chloe asks how Ava took it. Nicole admits that Ava thinks she wants Rafe for herself. Chloe asks if Ava is right about that.
Ava tells Rafe that Nicole just said she thought he should be with someone else. Rafe asks if there's anyone in particular or just not Ava. Ava says that she didn't exactly say. Rafe guesses Nicole was just in a mood so he's sorry she took it out on her. Rafe declares that what they do is none of Nicole's damn business. Ava blames herself for saying anything. Rafe asks if they are done talking. Ava guesses they covered that topic. Ava asks if they're not going to talk, then what should they do? Ava and Rafe then lean over the table to kiss.
Gwen apologizes to Chad as that was a horrible thing to say to him. Chad understands she's in a lot of pain and suggests they just forget about the things said tonight. Chad doesn't want her to be alone but he's not the right person to be here with her. Chad asks if there's anyone he can call. Gwen says they both know there is no one. Gwen blames herself for being all alone in this world. Gwen tells Chad not to tell her what he thinks she wants to hear. Gwen adds that she hasn't forgotten what she's done to him, Abigail, and their family. Gwen thought maybe the baby would be her way out of that and if she could love and care for somebody else instead of herself, then maybe she could change and she wouldn't be this hateful, vindictive person that her mother created. Chad tells her not to say that. Gwen remarks that people only say that when they hear the truth. Gwen thought the baby would be her second chance and if she could be a good mother, she could just erase the past. Chad encourages that she would've been a good mother. Gwen states that they will never know now, thanks to Abigail. Gwen knows Chad doesn't believe her but insists that it's true.
Abigail needs to hear Jack say that he knows she wouldn't push a pregnant woman down the stairs. Abigail argues that Jack believed Gwen about not killing Laura so she needs Jack to tell her that. Jack responds that he needs to go see Gwen.
"Susan" argues to Brady that Chloe is trying to bribe Rachel with presents to get to him. Brady tells her that it's none of her business and goes to check on Rachel. Kristen argues to Sami that Chloe apparently isn't spending all her time with Lucas and has time to go shopping for presents for Rachel. Kristen warns Sami to either get her proof that Lucas is keeping Chloe away from Brady or she will call Rome and Sami's marriage will blow up in her face.
Rafe and Ava lean in to kiss but get interrupted by Rafe getting a text on his phone. Rafe says he has to get to the station and apologizes. Rafe invites Ava out to dinner tomorrow night, like a date. Ava says she would like that. Rafe then exits.
Nicole reminds Chloe that she's married and Eric is coming home soon so she questions how Chloe could even ask if she has feelings for Rafe. Chloe is sorry if she offended her. Nicole says she's not offended, just amazed that Chloe had the nerve to ask her that. Chloe points out that Nicole didn't actually answer the question.
Jack enters Gwen's hospital room and asks if he should come back later. Chad says he was just leaving, so he exits. Jack sits at Gwen's side and says he just spoke with Abigail. Jack tells Gwen that he's so sorry. Gwen cries about losing her baby as Jack hugs her.
Chad walks out of Gwen's room and tells Abigail that Jack is in with her now. Abigail insists that she did not push her and asks if Chad knows that. Chad says he believes her, but points out that Abigail knew Gwen was pregnant, so he questions why she was fighting with her at the top of the stairs. Abigail asks if he's saying it's her fault. Chad then turns and walks away.
