After Henry’s checkup, Allie runs into Kayla at the hospital. She asks her aunt if Tripp is upset she didn’t say she loved him back. All Kayla knows is Tripp cares about her a lot. Allie cares about him too but she was caught off guard. Kayla thinks she did the right thing by not reciprocating. Saying I love you is a big deal and shouldn’t be said just as a conditioned response. Allie isn’t sure she loves him but she does like being with him and misses him when he’s not around. She marvels over Tripp’s capacity for forgiveness but wonders if she what she feels for him is out of guilt or gratitude for how he takes care of her and Henry. Kayla is sure she’ll figure it out in time. Allie doesn’t think she can ask him to put his life on hold for her. Kayla is confident he’ll wait for her.

Bonnie insists she didn’t do it. Calista moves on to accusing Bonnie of shooting her own husband to death. When Bonnie threatens to have her thrown out, Calista pulls out the gun Bonnie used to kill Harrison — and her fingerprints are still on it.
