At his place, Ben grabs beers, as Jake vents about Gabi backstabbing him with “Johnny”’s help. Ben shares his theory that Johnny is possessed by the devil. Though leery at first, Jake thinks it would explain how he got Gabi to believe Jake had that meeting with Maggie. He then recounts how “Johnny” glibly suggested he morphed into him, but then fought and he can’t remember the rest. Ben thinks maybe he got sucker-punched by the devil. Jake says it makes no sense, yet it explains everything. Ben tells him Susan is with “Johnny” right now, so if he is possessed, she will know.

Susan visits “Johnny” in his room at the mansion. She’s there to figure out if he’s really her grandson. After she tells him of Ben and Ciara’s accusation, “Johnny” suggests they just got confused because his movie is called Possessed. She counters that the devil could have easily jumped from Marlena to him during the exorcism. He points out a lot of other people were in the room. She brings up Ben and Ciara’s upside-down cross, but he thinks if he were possessed, she’d know it, considering her own impressive powers. She agrees, and since she’s not sensing any weirdness from him, he must not be Satan. He recalls using his powers on her during their last visit to wipe her memory of JoDevil.

She freaks out — “Dear sweet Jesus. Belle Brady is the devil”— as JoDevil secretly flashes yellow eyes.
