Ciara’s shocked to see Claire on her doorstep at Salem Inn. After a beat, she lets her aunt in. Ciara thought she’d go back to Hong Kong after her release.

She says they were best friends, almost sisters, which makes what she did worse. Ciara forgives Claire but Claire says she’ll never be able to forgive herself unless she can repair their relationship. Ciara has never thought of her as a psycho killer. In fact, Ciara says she hasn’t always been kind to her. Ciara has moved on. Claire says if she forgives her, “Then let me be your maid of honor.” Ciara is caught off guard. Claire says she can make sure it’s a wedding nobody in Salem will ever forget. Ciara says she just got out of Bayview. Shouldn’t she be taking care of herself? Claire wants a purpose. She tries hard to convince Ciara to say yes and Ciara says she’s just not sure. Claire says Ben killed people and she forgave him, which proves she thinks people can change. Why won’t she give her a second chance? “We’re family.” She sees Gwen’s photo in the flyer and says she knows her.
