In the hospital, Victor barks at Justin by phone to get Maggie out of prison. Xander enters and relays that Maggie’s had a weight off knowing she didn’t kill anyone. Vic asks if he told Sarah the news. Xander can’t find her and wonders if she reached out to Brady about the baby. Xander will never stop trying to prove how much he loves her. In Abigail’s room, she hallucinates that Gabi’s trying to jab her with a needle as Chad rushes in. He assures her Gabi’s not there, but relays that she tried to inject a guy who looks like Stefan last night. Eli and Lani enter and Chad updates them that Gabi struck again. They listen and agree to check it out. At the nurses’ hub, Gabi informs Kayla that something was stolen that belongs to her…by Ben Weston. They debate whether Stefan’s alive. Gabi insists it’s true – her injection would have restored his memories, but Ben took it. In Victor’s room, Ciara shares her engagement with her grandfather, who feels she deserves better than ‘the neck-tie killer’. Ciara defends Ben, then tells Victor she’s quitting Titan since he doesn’t trust her. He needs her to keep an eye on Xander and offers a raise. Ciara will return if he changes his mind about Ben. Victor agrees to accept Weston. Ciara’s thrilled. By the hub, Kayla warns Gabi she nearly committed a crime. Gabi argues the only crime was Ben stealing her serum.

She worries he’s committing her again. He reassures her, but they’ll have to travel there. Abigail doesn’t want to uproot the kids – she’ll go by herself.
