At SPD, Hope asks if Kate owns a gun. "I do, doesn't everyone?" She reminds Hope she knows that. She didn't have it with her the night Nick was killed. If she had the last few times she saw him, she'd have been sorely tempted to use it. Hope's surprised she's admitting that on tape. Kate says why not, she didn't kill Nick. She leaves. Roman arrives and Hope says the lab's trying to reconstruct the bullet. He goes and Abby arrives. She's distracted by thoughts of Nick calling her EJ's w**** and tells Hope she felt like Nick tricked her into giving him Aiden's name to use in the custody battle.

At the Brady's pub, Will flashes to Sonny having Victor's gun on him and Marlena encourages him to open up. He only tells her he feels guilty because he feels relief and gladness he's dead. Marlena thinks that feeling is understandable. Later, Kate meets Lucas. They discuss how Allie's shut down. Kate says she was "grilled by the pride of the Salem PD" and told her if she had a gun the last few days she saw Nick she might have offed him. Lucas looks nervous and he starts panting. Kate doesn't notice but when she leaves, he recalls deleting Nick's text.
Will arrives home to Sonny. They're alone. Sonny says he took the gun back - after he was questioned by the police. Will freaks. He admits he confessed to have threatened Nick before his murder. Will reassures Sonny, reminding him that since he put the gun back, they can't tie anything to Nick's murder. "They can't prove a thing." They agree they'll get through this together, and start making out.
Marlena arrives at the mansion. Sami asks her to care for Allie while she goes out. Sami feels this is her fault but Marlena calls that hogwash. They head into the great room where EJ and Allie are. Allie's quiet. Marlena tries to get Allie to engage but when EJ mentions how tired she looks, Allie worriedly yelps, "I don't want to take a nap!"
