In Dimitri’s cabin, Harris accuses him of bluffing about another hostage. They found no one else. “Who says anything about my hostage being on this ship?” Dimitri queries, still tied to the chair. However, he won’t reveal their identity until he gets blanket immunity for himself and another. If that doesn’t happen, his unnamed hostage will soon have an appointment at the pearly gates.
When another picture that Xander hung falls, he worries their apartment is haunted. Chloe scoffs, but Xander frets over Susan haunting him. He blames himself for her death, but Chloe urges him to move on and learn from it. He’s trying to learn from his mistakes, but trouble always finds him. Usually stemming from his desperation over money. Maybe this place isn’t haunted, “But I am.”

As Brady rants about Xander, John points out he shot both Brady and Marlena. Brady doesn’t think he should get a pass just because they survived, which, by the way, not everyone was as lucky. Marlena reminds Brady that Ava was the one who killed Susan. Brady knows Xander had a hand in it. Plus, he kidnapped Rachel and never takes responsibility. He worries Xander will drag Chloe into his next scheme, when he should be in prison.
On the fishing boat, Harris demands to know who else Dimitri wants immunity for. Dimitri chuckles as he reveals it’s Harris’ old mentor, Megan Hathaway.

Megan assures Kristen her plan is in the works, “they” just needed to get things organized. Kristen demands to know who she’s talking about. Megan says her guy on the outside is Dimitri Von Leuschner.
Chloe brings Xander tea on the couch. He assures her he doesn’t truly believe that Susan is haunting him. She’s sorry he’s so tortured over what happened to her. They lean in close as they agree they shouldn’t make a habit of ending up together in the middle of the night. Chloe backs away from their near kiss and wishes him a good night. Xander’s gaze lingers as Chloe leaves for her room.
As they lay in each other’s arms, Roman tells Kate about her urn at the Pub. He admits he talked to it, and she talked back. Kate says that feels familiar. Maybe she was reaching out to him while she was in a deep freeze. All matters now, Roman says, is that she’s there in his arms. Kate says it feels like a dream. Roman never wants to wake up.
