Bo watches Chelsea sleep. He hears her murmur Daniel's name in her sleep and his mouth drops open. Once she's awake, she tells him she's craving a caramel macchiato from the Java Café! Bo reminds her she can't leave the house for a week and brings up her sleep-talking. He asks if anyone has ever told her she talked in her sleep. "Yeah Nick…" She starts off and then quickly tries to cover it up by saying, "No, my sorority sisters!" Bo chooses to pretend he heard nothing and when Bo tells her he's on the way to work, Chelsea says she is working with Hope to try to keep him home. Morgan's arrival gives Bo the chance to dart out the door!

Morgan brings Chelsea coffee and muffins and they discuss Bo's guilt over her inability to have kids. Morgan can relate to tough times and Chelsea flashes back to kissing Daniel and tells Morgan that she is not sure how she feels about her infertility. She's sure it'll affect all of her relationships in the future, if she and Nick don't stay together. Morgan thinks that she has other options such as adoption and surrogacy and suggests that she take things as they come.

Kate breakfasts with Martino at the pub. Kate says, "I have to say you've changed a bit." Martino is positive it's because of her. Suddenly, Dr. Daniel rushes into the pub looking confused and is ushered over to Martino and Kate's table, where he angrily explains that he was paged moments before he was to take his flight on the premise that he had to consult with a colleague. A sheepish Martino admits that he was paged to do a consult with him about his daughter. Daniel snorts and Kate comes to Martino's defense. She says she suggested Daniel would be the person to talk to but after Martino explains the situation with Ava, Daniel says Ava needs a psychiatrist, not him, and he storms out, with Kate on his heels.

Steph enters the pub and greets Max with a kiss. He's been working on Nick's grant proposal all night and thinks he has fixed it. He asks Stephanie to mail it to the administration building without letting Nick know that he redid his work. Stephanie is confused. She thought he just cleaned it up a little. Nick walks in the pub and asks what's going on but Max covers and hands Steph the envelope under the table. Stephanie leaves; claiming she has to work and Nick takes a seat and apologizes for dumping on Max, yesterday. Max was happy to listen, he says. Nick says he left his grant proposal there yesterday and asks where it is. Max kicks it under the table and lies that he hasn't seen it. Stephanie returns and says today wasn't her day to work. When Nick asks, she tells him she hasn't seen his proposal. Nick says he promised Chelsea he'd put her first, so he tells them the grant will have to wait. After Nick runs off, Stephanie asks Max to be honest with what's going on. Max claims that Nicks' a very protective person and claims not to know much about the proposal. She doesn't believe him and thinks there is more he's not telling her.

Abe arrives at University Hospital to meet with Lexi, who informs him they've an appointment with a therapist. Roman arrives and Lexi tells the men that she's releasing Ava Vitali as she's not in immediate danger. We see Ava sitting in her hospital bed while Lexi explains that Ava's medically fit to face the consequences for her actions.

Later, Lexi releases Ava and gives Roman a copy of the forms. "Ava is officially yours," she says. Ava appears catatonic as Roman tells her he's taking her to the police station for booking.
At Salem PD, Abe tells Roman Ava's lawyer is causing issues for them. He doesn't want Ava to be cut loose on a technicality like her father has in the past. On the way to processing, Ava bumps into Bo, who sneers at her and tells her she must feel helpless. He yells that her new buddies in jail will make mincemeat of her and she deserves it for killing his father and putting a bullet in his wife. He continues to yell until Roman stops him. Ava apologizes and says she deserves to be punished for what she did. Roman's confused and says detox works miracles for her disposition! After Abe and Roman tell Bo that Dr. Nusbaum's drugs made Ava crazy, Bo thinks it's time he had a chat with Martino Vitali! Roman says they've got him under surveillance and tells Bo he's currently breakfasting with Kate at the pub. A cop enters Roman's office and tells the men that Dr. David Nusbaum's body was dragged from the river. Bo storms out of the room.

Kate finds Daniel and asks him to reconsider taking Ava's case. She tells Daniel the man loves his daughter. Daniel doesn't trust him and doesn't want him around his colleges or anyone else he cares about. "That includes you." He tells her if she's around him, chances are that Chelsea will be around him. Kate realizes Daniel cares for Chelsea and asks if that's why he's running out. Daniel denies it.

Kate returns to her table at the pub and Martino asks if she'd like to have dinner with him. She asks, "Just dinner?" He counters, "Was it ever just dinner?" Kate thinks that some things are better left in the past and she says these days she likes to get to know a man before they're intimate! She asks after Ava but Martino doesn't know where to begin.

Back at the Brady home, Chelsea tells Morgan she's trying not to keep thinking about the future but wonders how long she should wait to tell a guy that she can't have kids. Morgan lightens up Chelsea's mood with jokes and when Nick arrives, Morgan leaves for work. Nick asks how Chelsea's feeling today and she tells him she's better. Nick nods and from the door we hear, "Glad to hear it!" Daniel stands at the opened front door. Chelsea tells Nick that she and Daniel were supposed to have a final examination before he left town and rushes Nick out the door, asking him to call later. Daniel shakes his head while she does it and he says he's there to tell her he was asked to stay and consult on another case, but it all depends on her. He says he really didn't want to leave Salem, or her. He tells her this is wrong and it has to stop because she's his patient. Chelsea tells him to stop pushing her away and when he tells her he's not, she grabs his face and kisses him, passionately.

Back at Salem PD, Roman tells Abe that Ava's arraignment went fine, but she refused bail. When Abe tells Ava that Dr. Nusbaum was found dead, Ava's not surprised and assumes her father killed him.

 image

Nick returns to the pub and tells Max that Daniel showed up at Chelsea's house. He thinks that Daniel's hitting on Chelsea. The two are interrupted by an incensed Bo, who pushes his way into the pub and finds his way to Martino's table, where he tells Martino who he is and what Ava put him through. Martino apologizes and Bo asks Martino to have his goons step outside. He warns the man that he could review their gun permits. "No telling how long it could take." The men step outside, Kate moves to the bar and Bo hits Martino with a good right hook!
