Sami asks what if she asked the manager of the Salem Inn if Nicole booked a room under her own name. Nicole guesses he would tell her those records are none of her damn business. Sami says Nicole did not sleep alone that night. Sami guesses that Nicole paid Eric back for everything he's ever done for her by sleeping with a creep he despises. Nicole thinks back to being with Xander, but tells Sami that she doesn't know what she's talking about. Sami reminds her that she saw them together. Nicole argues that she would never cheat on Eric and certainly not with Xander.
Jack tells Xander that he's not sure him staying at his house is a good idea. Xander questions Jack not wanting to help him and assures it would only be temporary until he's back on his feet. Xander mentions that he's about to get a job at Basic Black. Jack asks why they would hire him. Xander responds that he's very charming. Xander insists life is more fun when he's around and asks Jack again. Jack agrees to let Xander stay but Julie walks in and says over her dead body.
Rafe and Ava kiss in her bedroom. Ava removes Rafe's shirt as they kiss on to the bed and continue undressing.
Gabi reminds Jake that she asked him a question before Lucas showed up. Gabi asks again if he's going to tell Kate about them. Gabi then starts to panic that Jake is going to bail because she could see his guilty conscience. Jake says it's not guilt so Gabi asks what it is since Jake said he hated that Kate saw them in bed together. Gabi asks if Jake is just going to imagine that it never happened and questions if he's just going to go back to Kate now that she's hurt.
Kate tells Dr. Snyder that she can't see a thing, so to her that is being blind. Dr. Snyder informs her that her exam was normal and she followed him with her eyes when he stepped away from the bed. Kate says she has excellent hearing. Dr. Snyder supposes it could be hysterical blindness but usually that's a response to emotional trauma, not a physical one. Kate tells him to try being bound and gagged and thrown in to a dungeon for days, then falling from a moving car. Kate calls that emotional trauma and then reveals that she remembers staggering all the way home to tell her lover that she was still alive, only to find him in bed with a bitch named Gabi. Kate declares that would make anyone hysterical.
Rafe and Ava lay in bed together after having sex. Rafe asks if she's okay. Ava assures that she's great as they kiss. Rafe feels they took a really big step after only one date. Ava points out that they've been living together for months. Rafe agrees that they just did it backwards and he did not have a problem with it. Ava asks if he's sure. Rafe asks why he wouldn't be. Ava jokes that he just slept with an ex-mobster. Rafe says that everyone has a past and they are two consenting adults that didn't do anything wrong. Ava brings up knowing someone who may disagree.
Sami states that Nicole cheated on Eric. Nicole denies it but Sami doesn't believe her. Sami repeats seeing her and Xander stumbling in to the Salem Inn so she refuses to believe that nothing happened. Nicole says nothing happened. Sami points out that they were awfully close. Nicole goes over getting drunk and barely being able to stand up, so Xander helped her out but she got her own room because she needed to sleep it off. Sami laughs off her story. Nicole questions Sami accusing her of cheating on her husband when Sami cheated on her own husband.
Julie asks if Jack is determined to turn her family home in to a refuge for wayward strays. Julie argues that he already moved in Gwen. Jack calls that not fair. Julie says that rolling out the welcome mat again to Xander is not fair. Julie declares that she's putting her foot down. Xander says she has every right not to trust him. Julie brings up Xander being naked on her sofa the last time he was here. Xander assures that would never happen again as at that time he was celebrating his impending wedding. Xander promises that was a big mistake. Julie brings up Xander showing up at her restaurant, demanding liquor when he was already drunk. Jack admits he had to drag Xander out of there.
Rafe asks Ava who would have a problem with them sleeping together. Ava responds that she could think of a lot of people and says Gabi for one. Rafe asks why she would say that. Ava informs him that Gabi came by yesterday and told her that if she really cared about Rafe, she would move out of the house. Ava jokes that Gabi does not like her at all and that Gabi would have some choice words if she found out about this. Rafe tells her that he will talk to Gabi but Ava tells him not to because she doesn't want to cause any more trouble. Rafe declares that what they do is none of Gabi's business. Ava worries that Gabi could make things difficult for Rafe but Rafe says Gabi doesn't have a time because she has her own messy love life to deal with. Ava still asks Rafe not to say anything to Gabi.
Jake tells Gabi to take it easy but she remains upset. Jake insists it's over with he and Kate, he doesn't want to be with Kate, and he's with Gabi. Gabi questions not telling Kate that. Jake assures that he will tell Kate the truth but not today. Gabi asks when then, arguing that he could just ease her in to it. Jake says he just needs to find the right time. Jake talks about Kate laying in the bed blind and scared, expecting him to be there for her because she thinks he is her partner. Jake repeats that he just needs to find the right time. Jake declares that it's over between he and Kate and he's going to tell her soon. Lucas then appears at the hospital and says like hell he is.
Dr. Snyder tells Kate that he's a little confused since he was told she had memory issues. Kate remarks that she and Jake would still be together if it wasn't for the backstabbing Gabi Hernandez. Kate reveals that she does remember every detail. Dr. Snyder asks if her amnesia is exaggerated then. Kate responds that she's not a doctor. Dr. Snyder guesses that Kate is not blind at all.
Sami tells Nicole that she did not cheat on EJ. Nicole clarifies that she's talking about when Sami cheated on Rafe with EJ. Sami calls that ancient history. Nicole argues that Sami hasn't changed at all since then. Sami can't believe Nicole would throw that in her face when she thought her son was dead. Nicole asks if Sami could dish it out and not take it. Nicole points out that Sami got awfully defensive when she thought she meant that she cheated on EJ. Sami says she won't listen to baseless accusations from her. Nicole points out that Sami came here, accusing her of sleeping with Xander. Sami insists that she did. Nicole tells Sami to get the hell out. Sami agrees to leave but warns that this isn't over as she's going to get to the bottom of this. Sami then walks out.
Ava kisses Rafe and asks if he really doesn't care that Gabi doesn't approve of her. Rafe says if he only did what Gabi approved of, he'd lead a very different life and probably wouldn't be a cop. Rafe jokes that they definitely would not be doing this as they continue kissing. Ava stops and says she really enjoys this but wants to go to the kitchen because she's starving.
Lucas questions what the hell is wrong with Jake and Gabi. Jake tells him there's a lot. Lucas doesn't want to hear it. Lucas argues that his mother is scared out of her mind and Jake is going to walk in to her hospital room and dump her. Gabi argues that he doesn't understand and calls it none of his business. Lucas argues that his mother is his business and reminds Jake of what Kate has been through. Jake says he knows and feels horrible. Lucas tells Jake not to walk in there and tell Kate that he wants to be with Gabi. Lucas declares that is not going to happen on his watch.
Kate admits to Dr. Snyder that she's not blind and she never lost her memory as she remembers absolutely everything Kristen did to her and then finding Gabi and Jake in bed together, which made her wish she was blind. Dr. Snyder asks Kate to explain why she putting on this charade. Kate responds that when she woke up, she heard Gabi and Jake discussing how they were going to break it to her that they were now together. Kate complains that she's in the hospital while they are discussing their future together and she could not let that stand. Dr. Snyder questions her pretending to be blind and suffering from memory loss. Kate tells him not to say a word about it to anyone.
Xander tells Jack that he was hoping he would back him up. Xander tells Julie that she's right that his behavior was unforgivable, but his fiancée had just left him and his life was falling apart. Julie questions him getting drunk because he was happy and then because he was sad. Xander admits he wasn't in his right mind and when she asked him to leave, he did. Julie accuses him of stealing a bottle of his most expensive whiskey on his way. Xander tries to deny it but Julie says she saw the security footage.
Rafe cooks food for Ava and says he's going to get the paper then they will head back to the bedroom. Rafe then opens the door to see Nicole has arrived with the newspaper.
Lucas reminds Jake that Kate believes they are still together and that Jake still loves her. Jake says he's not looking to hurt her. Lucas tells him not to then and to wait until Kate feels better until telling her that he wants to be with a snake in Gabi. Gabi reminds Lucas that she's the mother of his grandchild. Jake adds that it was uncalled for and that Gabi didn't deserve that. Lucas agrees and apologizes but says he's worried about his mother and wants her to feel better. Jake says they are worried and upset about it too. Lucas just wants this crisis to end. Gabi gets that Kate has been through hell. Jake says he still cares about Kate. Lucas tells Jake to step up and do the right thing then.
Kate asks Dr. Snyder again if he will not repeat a word of what she just said. He assumes she's invoking doctor-patient confidentiality. Kate remarks that they both know he has a history of not following that law. Kate reminds him that he's had quite a few accusations of misconduct against him with the hospital board. Kate says the accusations never stuck, but not because he wasn't guilty. Dr. Snyder asks what she wanted then. Kate warns that if he says one word about her condition, she will persuade her fellow board members to fire him from the hospital. Dr. Snyder calls that extortion but Kate calls it one colleague helping another. Kate asks if they have an understanding. Jake then enters the room and asks how everything is going.
Gabi hopes Lucas is happy with himself and asks if this is really what he wants for his mother. Lucas says he wants her to get well. Gabi argues that Jake doesn't want to be with Kate anymore, he wants to be with her. Lucas accuses Gabi of undermining Kate. Gabi argues that Lucas has Jake in there lying, acting like nothing has changed. Gabi asks how Kate will feel when she finds out that this was all just an act. Lucas says he'll worry about that then as he just wants her to live, so he will deal with the fallout when she recovers. Lucas declares that right now, Jake belongs with Kate as that's his place. Gabi reminds Lucas that he lives in a house that she owns. Lucas asks if she's threatening him. Gabi declares that if Lucas is going to be an enemy of her relationship with Jake, then he doesn't get to live under her roof. Lucas asks if she's asking him to move out. Gabi orders him to go back to the DiMera Mansion, pack up his stuff, and get the hell out.
Sami goes home, insisting that she knows Nicole slept with Xander and that Eric deserves better. Sami then gets a call from EJ and says she was just about to call him. Sami asks why EJ took back the money he transferred to Xander. Sami knows it was a lot of money but her life was at risk so she wonders if there was some other reason he cancelled the transfer or if there's something he is not telling her.
Rafe asks Nicole what he can do for her. Nicole says she came to see Ava as she thought Rafe would be at work. Rafe informs her that he's going in late. Nicole guesses this is a bad time but Rafe tells her it's a great time and tells them to chat while he goes to change anyways. Nicole apologizes to Ava for interrupting. Ava claims they were just about to have breakfast and jokes that she's glad Nicole didn't show up half an hour earlier. Nicole guesses they were in bed, which Ava confirms. Ava says she doesn't even really know how it happened as Rafe came in to bring her coffee then one thing led to the next. Nicole decides she doesn't need to know the details but says she's so happy for them both. Ava says she is really happy too. Nicole offers to go but Ava tells her to stay and have coffee. Ava asks what's going on. Nicole says they can talk about it later but Ava insists so Nicole informs her that Sami paid her a visit and suspects that she cheated on Eric, because she saw her going in to the Salem Inn with that guy. Ava asks if that guy is Xander. Nicole asks why she would say that. Ava brings up Rafe saying he saw Nicole in Xander's room and couldn't figure out why she was offering Xander a job. Nicole asks Ava to promise not to say anything to Rafe, as Rafe then comes back in to the room.
Xander questions Julie reviewing security footage over one missing bottle of alcohol. Jack suggests Xander be honest. Xander apologizes for taking the bottle and says he doesn't even remember doing it as he was going through a very dark time, but he's happy to pay it back. Julie tells him it will be $200 and she wants it in cash now. Xander is shocked it was a $200 bottle and says he's a bit down on his luck at the moment. Xander turns to Jack and says he'll pay him back. Jack agrees. Julie questions why Jack is enabling him. Xander calls Jack his very good friend. Jack pays Julie the money so Xander asks if they're all happy now.
Sami tells EJ that she's just wondering why he would take the money back since he knew her life was at risk. Sami doesn't know what other reason there could be and says that's why she is asking. Lucas arrives so Sami claims to EJ that it's her mother and she has to go, so she hangs up. Lucas jokes with her and guesses that was an excuse to get off the phone. Sami explains that she's worried that EJ cancelled the transfer of the money because he knows about them. Lucas thinks he would've confronted her and raised hell by now. Sami worries that EJ could be playing games but Lucas insists that she's fine. Sami asks Lucas how Kate is. Lucas tells her that she's not good as she's lost her vision and has no idea that Kristen attacked her. Sami calls that horrible and asks about Jake and the breakup. Lucas says Kate doesn't know about that, so as far as she's concerned, they are still together.
Dr. Snyder informs Jake that he's given Kate a thorough exam and it's evident that her traumatic head injury has resulted in the memory loss and blindness. Jake asks if the blindness is permanent. Dr. Snyder says he's not sure of the extent of it yet but they will be calling in a specialist. Jake asks if there's something Dr. Snyder can do. Dr. Snyder says they are doing everything they can and will run more tests, but how they proceed is up to Kate. Jake asks about the memory loss. Dr. Snyder says he can't give a definitive diagnosis as the brain is a mystery, but they are hopeful for a positive outcome. Jake asks if there's anything else he can do. Dr. Snyder responds that what Kate needs most, is the love and support of the people that mean the most to her.
Xander asks Julie if they are all good now as far as him staying here. Julie says hardly but the house belongs to Jack and Jennifer, so she has no choice. Xander tells Julie that he's honored to be housemate and jokes that he thinks it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
Lucas complains to Sami about the nerve of Jake and how he had to strong arm him in to sticking by Kate's side and not going behind her back with Gabi. Lucas adds that Gabi didn't take too kindly to his request which doesn't surprise Sami. Lucas reveals that Gabi kicked him out of the DiMera Mansion so now he needs a place to live temporarily. Sami tells him no while Lucas thinks it's no big deal. Sami tells him that he's not staying here after what happened between them. Lucas says he won't sleep with her anymore then. Sami tells him that he can't stay here, especially not now. Lucas asks what happened. Sami informs him that she talked to Nicole, who denied everything, but she declares that she's going to find a way to prove that she cheated on Eric.
Nicole tells Rafe and Ava that she will see them later and rushes out of the house. Rafe asks Ava what that was all about. Ava thinks Nicole felt a little awkward finding them like they were. Rafe guesses Ava told her. Ava says Nicole probably figured it out on her own, but she did confirm it. Ava asks if Rafe is okay with that. Rafe assures that he is and asks why he would mind.
Dr. Snyder goes to check on running tests for Kate. She and Jake thank him as he exits. Jake asks Kate how she's doing. Kate responds that she doesn't know as it's just overwhelming. Jake calls her one of the toughest people he knows, who can handle anything. Kate cries that she doesn't feel very tough right now. Kate tells Jake that she really needs him so Jake hugs her as Gabi then walks in to the room.
