She barges in to see Sydney but EJ tells her to move out of the mansion and then she can see Sydney. Nicole needs to find a new place first so he suggests she move in with him.

Rafe isn’t impressed but sucks it up and shows EJ a photo of Johnny, asking him to have a look. EJ thinks this is about Sami but Rafe assures him it’s not but doesn’t tell him why he should have a look. He just wants EJ to have Johnny’s left eye examined. He leaves EJ mystified and looking at the photo of Johnny. He tells Mary to let him know when Johnny’s awake.


Rafe returns to the loft, worried. Lexi turns up, stark raving mad at Sami. She’s not there but Rafe says they need her help.
