At the Kiriakis mansion, Brady orders that an employee at Titan be fired. Victor overhears and tells Brady he did good. Maggie arrives and shows Victor the earring she found at the mausoleum.

Victor isn't sure where she is yet, but he'll be sure to send her everything. Victor asks to talk about the real reason Vivian left. He shows her Vivian's email. Victor recalls his wedding day when Maggie offered him a ride to the airport and wonders if that offer still stands. He reminds her that Mickey wouldn't want her to spend the rest of her life alone.

Carly arrives at the mausoleum and recalls memories with Isabella. Meanwhile, Brady turns on the video system in Vivian's room. Vivian warns that Carly will save her because she won't believe Vivian's gone until she hears it from her own mouth. Bo arrives and Carly tells him she's worried that Vivian is still out there, waiting to strike. Carly gets a text from Vivian threatening to be back. Bo thinks Vivian is admitting defeat.

Philip hopes he's right and leaves. Brady goes back to Vivian and says he sent Carly the message from her phone, so everyone will believe she's gone.

Rafe meets with Will outside the pub and asks if he's okay. Will would rather not talk about it. Rafe says Johnny keeps asking for EJ. Will doesn't think Sami will tell Johnny the truth and Rafe asks why. Will tells him to stop questioning everything he says. Will sighs that he wants everything over with. Rafe asks if that means he wants EJ to die. Will says EJ will get away with everything. Rafe says if EJ dies, the shooter will be locked up for a long time. Arianna arrives and says whoever shot EJ will have to deal with Stefano, which is worse. Rafe scolds Arianna for interrupting as Will takes off. Rafe says he and Arianna need to work some things out. Arianna reminds him that EJ came to her defense, but Rafe insists that EJ was using her and conning her the same way he was conning Sami. Rafe reminds her that EJ kidnapped Sydney, but Arianna reminds him Sami's also done bad things. Rafe says Arianna always had a soft spot for the bad guys. Arianna says EJ never let her down, so she won't let him down either. She tells Rafe to get used to that and walks off.
Lexi wonders what EJ was trying to tell her when he called out Sami's name. Abe arrives and Lexi tells him about EJ calling Sami's name. She's not sure what this means about his brain activity. Abe reminds Lexi that Sami was EJ's focus for the past few months, so it's a good sign that EJ knows who he is. Stefano arrives and Lexi tells him that EJ's brain activity has slightly increased. Stefano asks to be alone with EJ and tells him that he'll make whoever did this pay. Stefano wonders if Will did it, and promises revenge if he's proven right.

Will overhears as Abe tells Lexi it's good that she told Stefano about EJ saying Sami's name. Back in EJ's room, Lexi wonders what Stefano will do to the person who shot EJ.
Back at the mansion, Kate says she's going to have to stop Stefano to protect Will. She imagines slipping something in Stefano's drink and wonders if she'll really need to do that to her husband. Stefano arrives with news about Will, but Kate asks him to share a drink first.
