As Xander and Gwen dine in the Square, he asks if she’s decided to go see Rolf with him. She declines. Xander assumes she doesn’t want Sarah to get better. She wonders why she would be in such a rush for that to happen, assuming it’d lead to them reuniting. Xander knows this is difficult for her, but points out their kind of connection doesn’t come along often. She doesn’t think it compares to his and Sarah’s “epic love story.” He declares he loves her. She reminds him she’s his fiancée now, but what happens when Sarah gets better. Will he still want to marry her, or Sarah? Xander wishes he had an answer. He doesn’t blame her for being upset, but he has to see this through for Sarah.

Craig walks into his Salem Inn room to find Leo in bed with Chad. He fumes and orders Chad to get dressed. Chad “insists” he didn’t intend for Craig to find them, but Leo says he did. He explains he texted Craig to come home, that way they could have a threesome. Craig is speechless, but Leo thinks this will bring them closer. When Craig starts coming around to the idea, Chad jumps out of bed. This is not what he signed up for. Leo knows. He spotted his and Abigail’s bad acting from a mile away. Chad counters Abigail is a great actress. He hastily dresses, but before he can leave, Craig asks what his stake is in trying to break them up. Chad was just helping his friends who wanted to open Craig’s eyes to this “dirtbag.” Once Chad’s gone, Craig assumes Chloe’s involved. Leo wishes there was a way to convince her he’s truly in love with him. Craig says there is something he can do… “Marry me.”
