Kate spots Sami and Lucas making out at the square. Elsewhere, Rafe calls Nicole to check up on her. Later, Kate starts in on Sami and Lucas. "My eyes actually hurt," she yells, adding that Lucas needs shots. She thinks Sami was planning this. Kate goes on and on... "She's like a drug to you," Kate cries. She tells her son to go back to "Summer," but Lucas yells that Autumn dumped him. This makes it worse. Sami starts in on Kate, calling her a "gold class slut." She slings more insults and then drops the bombshell that Lucas is working for CW. Kate feels betrayed and implores Lucas to get another job because Sami will lose the company money. "You'd lose money selling lemonade in the Sahara," she quips. Things almost get physical when Lucas steps in. Kate takes off and Lucas doesn't want Sami to use him to help get revenge on Kate. What happened to their drama-free day? He refuses to be played again and lays down the law. If Sami does anything underhanded at work, he's out. Sami notices that Lucas has changed. He asks what the kiss was for. She claims it was to thank him, and then leans in and gives him another lingering kiss.


At the pub, Madison and Justin discuss him handling her divorce to Ian. She thinks Ian's leading her into a false sense of security and doesn't trust him. Madi's desperate to be free of Ian and has some tricks up her sleeve, much to Justin's chagrin. He'll start proceedings. He leaves and Kate arrives. Madi spots her and can see she's having a bad day. They get a table and Kate admits she tried turning down the Co-CEO position but Ian told her he thought they could work together because they're so competitive and will be able to bring Sami Brady down together.


Hope and Bo make out on the sofa at home while somebody watches from outside.


While walking through the park, Marlena is attacked by Stefano's goon. He wants to know where the coin is. Roman and Carrie turn up and Roman pulls a gun while John whispers for him to take a shot. Marlena uses self-defense on her attacker and he runs off. Roman calls for back-up and Marlena worries for Bo and Hope. Roman calls Rafe who can't track the goon. John's never seen Stefano more desperate. Roman spoke to Spencer and an agent will take them all to a secure safe house. Apparently they have an inside scoop from Stefano. He's going after all of his enemies. Agent Harmon arrives to take them home to pick up a few belongings before they head out.


Hope and Bo grab their guns as someone tries to open their door. Rafe turns up and tells them about Marlena's attack as the goon watches from outside. Bo cringes when Rafe informs them they're going into the safe house as well. Caroline will be taking Ciara on a class trip so they'll be out of the way.

At home, Stefano talks to one of his henchmen on the phone, asking if the fake attack looked real. Now they understand how far he's willing to go to get his coin back. The henchman agrees to keep him informed.


John, Marlena, Rafe and Roman accompany Agent Harmon and Agent Spencer to the safe house. Hope's sick of living their lives in reaction to Stefano. John thinks this is an opportunity to put Stefano away. Rafe doesn't like that Carrie's on her way with groceries. It'll put her at risk. Spencer tells them the place is secure. There is no phone or wifi that can be breached. Rafe's lack of trust irks the ISA agent who asks to enlist him into the ISA at least until this is over. Spencer says they are sending an exact replica of the coin to Stefano. The partial code they have reads, "Yvette" but Stefano's will be "gobbledygook." John and Bo think they're closer than ever to winning the war against Stefano. Carrie arrives with food. She makes jokes about Marlena and Hope's cooking.


Stefano receives the replicated coin at home. "Finally," he says, examining it. Later, he does an internet search for gases causing brain tumors just as Agent Harmon arrives to tell Stefano that the coin is a fake and what's on the real coin. Stefano tells Harmon to take care of all of them.
