After being summoned, Belle meets EJ at the mansion. She can’t believe his “life and death” emergency is figuring out how to oust Gabi from DiMera. Her husband is dealing with a real-life and death situation where an actual human being could die. Concerned, EJ asks what happened. She tells him Shawn accidentally shot his father. Munching on a croissant, EJ glibly says it sounds like Shawn really screwed up.

Belle punches EJ in the gut and calls him an insensitive jerk. He stops her from leaving and apologizes. To make up for it, EJ offers Belle the DiMera jet to be with Shawn. He’ll pay for all the expenses. Belle calls it very generous, but she’s in the middle of a trial. Shawn understands. EJ says the offer stands if she changes her mind. As for Gabi, he’ll handle it.

In Greece, Harris turns in his hotel room key and runs into Shawn in the lobby. He asks if there’s any change in Bo’s condition. Shawn relays the doctors don’t know when or if he’ll come out of his coma. Harris is sorry, but Shawn blames himself. Harris insists his actions are what led to Bo’s fate. Frustrated, Shawn concedes that some of the blame lies on Harris, but at the end of the day, he pulled the trigger on his own father.

Harris still feels like he should pay for keeping the truth from Hope. Shawn tersely tells him it’s not illegal, so no one’s coming to arrest him. Harris says he’s still paying for it by losing Hope. Shawn wonders what else he expected. Does Harris want him to feel sorry for him? Harris doesn’t expect that. He knows he’ll have to live with what he did for the rest of his life. Shawn leaves to take a shower.
