Upstairs in the Kiriakis mansion, Sarah and Xander plan to shower together but are interrupted by a call from Jan. Xander sends Sarah to get started without him. Over the phone, Jan tells Xander she decided to call the cops on Philip. She thinks she’ll end up with Shawn who will be upset when Belle inevitably comes to Philip’s legal aid. Xander thinks it sounds convoluted but as long as it gets Philip out of his way he doesn’t care. Sarah comes out of the shower after Xander hangs up the phone. She tells him to get in the shower so they can go to Maggie’s dinner party. He thinks she’s probably still dirty and kisses her as they both head back to the shower.
