In the park, Taylor informs EJ this has to be the last conversation they have about their feelings. EJ can see how much this hurts her. It has to stop. He calls himself a persuasive man but she's resistant to him. He admires her integrity and loyalty and will keep his distance. Taylor wonders if he's playing her but he insists he's not, though he had thought of it. He could never do that to somebody he loved. Taylor softens and he admits he has loved her since the first moment he saw her. He's trying to be a better person and doesn't want her miserable. Taylor sighs as he walks away.

In her room, Faye shakes and struggles not to cry. She flashes to asking Taylor if there was something going on between her and EJ and tells the nurse to get her daughters to her room as soon as possible. The nurse returns with something to help Faye sleep. Faye pretends to take the medicine.

In the great room, EJ tells Stefano he did the right thing with Taylor. Stefano reminds him the last time he did the right thing, Samantha got partial custody of the kids. RoboRafe saunters in, larger than life. Stefano says everyone's out except Faye, and he had the nurse give her a sedative, so they can talk openly. RoboRafe boasts about how he spent last night on the sofa and EJ thinks he's looking for praise but RoboRafe claims this job isn't easy. He asks EJ to be useful and tell him what comes next. EJ's offended and they start to bicker and push each other around. Stefano stops them and says Robo needs to tell Samantha that they need a break. RoboRafe agrees and apologizes to EJ for being out of line. After all, he gets to live the rest of his life with this new face and piles of money. Faye eavesdrops as EJ apologizes and they discuss how nobody will be the wiser.

She's going to move out of EJ's house and life for good. She has to tell Nicole the truth, first.

They discuss giving Mel five million dollars plus what he already gave her in the settlement. Philip's thankful that she won't have to ever worry about money. Dario steps out and tells himself money's not going to be a problem for him, either. Nurse Melanie's worth more than what he thought.
