Nathan went into Jordan's office. She was surprised to see him, since he was supposed to be working the mob case. Nathan explained that he'd found evidence tied to Avery's kidnapping case. Nathan hesitantly admitted that he found a baby blanket at Nina's that was monogrammed with Avery's initials, but wasn't sure it actually belonged to Avery. Jordan told him to show it to Michael, then take it to Forensics for analysis. Nathan explained that Ric had refused to turn the blanket over. Jordan told Nathan to get a warrant, but Nathan was hesitant to do that. Jordan wondered why Nathan brought this up if he didn't want to follow through. Nathan explained that he had a hunch that Ric was framing Nina. Jordan admitted that she thought well of Ric, since he had defended TJ. Jordan pointed out that Nathan was making serious allegations against an officer of the court. She asked if he had proof. Nathan didn't, but he suspected that Ric was trying to get Nina out of the way, so he could take her inheritance. Jordan told Nathan to get the baby blanket, which would offer proof of Nina's innocence or guilt.
Kiki and Morgan were at Silas's cleaning up the kitchen after breakfast. Kiki's bags were packed because she was attending a friend's bachelorette party in the Hamptons. They kissed goodbye and she left. There was a knock on the door a second later, and Morgan opened the door to see Franco. Morgan spat that Kiki wasn't there, but Franco replied that he was there to see Morgan. Morgan refused to let Franco in. Franco began to scream loudly about Morgan's extracurricular activities until Morgan relented and let him in the apartment. Franco explained that he'd put the pieces together and figured out Morgan and Denise had sex. Franco was upset that Morgan was making a fool out of someone Franco cared about. Franco noticed a knife block sitting on a counter. He pulled out one of the knives and announced that he was planning to deal with Morgan in a final way. Morgan stood up to Franco and warned him that Sonny would kill him if he hurt Morgan. Franco waved the knife around and blustered for a bit, but he backed down. Morgan taunted Franco and called him spineless. Franco left after promising to kill Morgan if Morgan hurt Kiki.
Madeline stopped by Ric and Nina's suite. Nina had left early, and Ric thought that was because Nina was afraid she'd hear the baby's cries again. Ric boasted about how well the plan was going, and he and Madeline kissed. Ric told Madeline that Nathan was now questioning Nina's sanity. Madeline wanted details. Ric was surprised that Nathan hadn't told Madeline everything. Madeline grumbled that Nathan had barely spoken to her because Maxie was trying to poison him against her. Ric explained that Nathan had questioned Nina extensively after he saw the baby blanket in her suite. Instead of being pleased, like Ric had predicted, Madeline was furious. She was worried that Nathan would test the blanket and discover that it manufactured evidence and realize that Nina was being gaslighted. Ric wasn't concerned. He told Madeline they could burn the blanket and make it look like Nina did it. Ric thought that Nina was so unsure of her own memory that she might even confess if the police brought her in. Madeline was uneasy about framing Nina for evidence tampering. Ric was taken aback by Madeline's reluctance, given everything else they'd done to Nina. Madeline clarified that she didn't like any of this, but she figured she had no choice but to stick to the plan.

Ava replied that all Franco did was talk about Nina. Ava was adamant that Franco was still in love with Nina. Ava also thought that Nina was still in love with Franco too. Ava theorized that Nina only married Ric to punish Franco for accusing her of kidnapping Avery. Ava assured Nina that Franco knew that was the biggest mistake of his life. Nina asked if Franco said that. Ava thought it was plain to see. Ava felt that Nina was torturing herself by staying in a loveless marriage instead of being with the man she really loved.

Ava urged Nina to ignore her self doubt, end her marriage, and go find Franco. Nina explained that it wasn't that simple Ric was her lawyer who was trying to get her inheritance back, and he was a good guy, so Nina didn't want to break his heart. Ava advised Nina to get another lawyer. Ava added that Ric was resilient, and if he really cared about Nina, he wouldn't want to stand in the way of true love.
