Eli suggests Hope and Lani suggests Rafe but both turned him down before so Jack asks if Eli’s interested. He goes and Lani urges Eli to take the job. Eli considers it and agrees. The money will come in handy for their wedding and all the kids they’ll have. Lani laughs and they canoodle. Lani told her mom about the wedding and she’s thrilled.

Eve takes off.
Ben and Ciara wake up together at the cottage. Ben’s reading about DiMera Enterprises and says it looks like Stefan’s being kicked out. Ben’s positive Stefan is innocent. Maybe he can help prove it. It’ll also mean they can keep living there. They kiss. At the main house, Stefan and Gabi are on a call about their wedding. Gabi pressures him to hurry up. They need to marry before the board ousts him. When he asks, Gabi says yes, she’ll be proud to take his surname, too. Later, Stefan appears at Ben’s. He shares the wedding news and asks them to be witnesses, explaining the situation. Ben and Ciara have misgivings. Stefan says they’ve developed a bond. He doesn’t want to discuss it further so they agree to witness the marriage. He goe and they dress and make out. Ben finds her beautiful.
At Rafe’s place, Gabi disconnects and Rafe, who was eavesdropping, says she’ll marry Stefan DiMera over his dead body. Gabi explains it’s business. She knows the charges are bogus. Rafe asks if it’s slipped her mind that he framed her for murder. It hasn’t so Rafe assumes she’s fallen for him. Gabi insists she hasn’t so Rafe knows she’s not giving him the entire story. He asks if she’s ready for Stefan to be Arianna’s step-father. Gabi is doing this all for her kid’s financial stability that they never had. Rafe won’t try to stop her but feels it’s a mistake. Gabi goes.
