Lani kisses Rafe in his kitchen and pushes her away. He asks where this came from. She says they’re both free. They can be together. “You, me and David.” Rafe admits he was self-involved and is sorry he didn’t see how this was affecting her. He thinks this is because of David’s loss. Lani has a meltdown. “David’s not your baby and he never will be. He’s Jordan’s.” Lani says she may never get out of the psych ward and Ben’s a murderer. Neither can care for David. Rafe clarifies that there’s no family here. “It’s fantasy.” To her, it’s real, she cries. Why can’t he see that? Her love for David is real and she knows he loves her. “I have so much love to give my little boy,” she says, before realizing David’s not her kid. Rafe hugs her as she sobs and apologizes. She says a loving goodbye to David and Rafe encourages her to try to get back together with Eli.
In the park, Ciara’s rocked to hear that Ben threatened to strangle Rory. Eli turns up and starts asking questions.

Eli runs off to find him while Ciara asks more questions. Rory calls Weston a psycho and Ciara blows a gasket and swats him. Rory dashes away.
Claire starts a fire in the woodpile at the Horton Cabin and burns Haley and Tripp’s fake passports in it. She takes off and Tripp and Haley smell smoke and assume it’s coming from a campfire.

Inside, Tripp and Haley finally realize the cabin’s on fire. Eli arrives with two officers. Ben tells them about the two trapped inside and he has the officers cart Ben off while inside, Haley runs for the back door and hits her head on a round table and falls unconscious. Later, Eli drags them outside and starts CPR on Haley while Tripp coughs up a lung.

Ben’s brought into SPD and Eve looks thrilled. A cop hands her the lighter he was holding and she says she’ll take it from here. She takes a statement and Ben tells Eve that Claire set the fire and the one that almost killed Ciara. He tells Eve about Claire almost setting fire to Tripp’s clothing with the lighter and opens up about being hypnotized by Marlena and remembering hearing Claire’s cell phone ring tone at the first cabin fire. “Sounds to me as if the cheese is sliding off the cracker,” the police commissioner says to the mentally ill man. She calls him a freak, a delusional psychopath and says he’ll pay for what he did to her daughter.
