Esme catches Spencer on the phone in the foyer begging Cam to do him this one favor. After getting off the phone, she asks what that was about. He explains and Cam got into a fight over things he said about her, and he made it clear he wouldn’t continue to tolerate them talking about her that way. Esme is touched. Spencer decides to go to the gallery to work and feels that it is after hours so can avoid Ava and Trina. He kisses her cheek and says, ‘It really has always been you and me against the world.”

Back in the living room, Nikolas gets a text from Ava saying she has plans and for him not to wait up. He throws his phone as Esme enters. She asks if he has something on his mind. He rants Ava is not even taking his calls and flips the table. Esme goes to clean it up, but he tells her to leave it.

Esme blames herself for all of this and doesn’t understand how Ava doesn’t appreciate him. She sees him and wants the kind of passion he has for his wife in her life. She feels neither of them should be stuck in a house without the passion they deserve. Laura enters and says, “Well I bring good news then.” She reveals Esme doesn’t have to hide out here anymore.

Laura explains that she spoke with Sonny, and Esme has nothing to worry about so she can move out. Nikolas suggests they not be so hasty. Esme notes she and Spencer still don’t have money, but Laura says Spencer can go back to work at Kelly’s and everything with Cam has been worked out. Esme hugs Laura and can’t wait to find Spencer and tell him.

After Esme leaves, Laura asks Nikolas about the moment she walked in on. Nikolas explains Esme is blaming herself for Ava ditching his date night, and he was consoling her. Laura feels he should be consoling Ava. Nikolas believes Esme and Spencer will get back on track, as will he and Ava, and then they’ll rebuild this family. Laura thinks he’s being naive and advises him to get that scorpion out from under his roof before she poisons them all. He assures her he knows what he’s doing.

At the gallery, Trina hears someone come in and grabs some pepper spray. She discovers it’s only Rory. He explains he saw the lights on and wanted to check as Jordan said she has had some problems with the press and assigned him to keep an eye on her. She asks if she can do anything for him, and he wouldn’t mind a drink while he sits in his patrol car. She jokes officer invisible once gave her a soda so she can return the favor. He smiles and asks her to call him Rory.

Trina brings Rory a drink and finds him looking at a painting. She asks how the painting makes him feel. Spencer arrives and hears Rory telling Trina he finds that it reminds him of darkness and light. Spencer enters and says it’s called contrast. Trina scoffs, “Well you are the expert on all things shady.” She asks why he’s there. He explains he came to start his restitution and thought nobody would be there at this hour.

Rory decides to get back to the car, and Spencer asks Trina why he is there. She explains Jordan assigned him to watch over her. She offers to leave if he wants to work tonight, and he notes he just had to get out of the house. She wonders if it’s more issues with his dad. He reveals they are getting along. Trina laughs, “Are you running from your beloved Esme?”  She says she’ll leave him a to-do list so he can get it done and then back to the love of his life. He blurts out she’s anything but that just as Esme walks in.

At The Savoy, Portia asks Curtis if he found Marshall. He says he did, and then lost him again. Curtis reveals he came across some secrets Marshall has been keeping and his dad was so angry he left town. Curtis explains his father was arrested at a protest rally and instead of going to jail, he was sent to a mental institution. She is concerned and questions how he came across all this information, and why he didn’t trust her to tell her. She lived through this with Taggert and won’t do it again. She wants him to promise to put their future first.

Gladys pushes her to sell the photos, but Sasha loses it and attacks him. Dante arrives and breaks the fight up. Gladys warns Sasha not to say another word without a lawyer and leaves to call Brando. Dante asks her about what happened, and she cries that Harmony just ran out into the middle of the road and she tried to swerve. Dante suggests Gladys, who returns, take her to GH to get checked out for shock. He also asks them both to come to the station in the morning for a statement. They walk away, and Dante notices what appears to be a necklace in a puddle of blood on the ground.

Meanwhile, Gladys asks Sasha what is on that card that has her so upset. Sasha breaks down and says she can’t take being judged anymore. Gladys assures her the memory card is safe, and they should get her to the hospital.
