Carrie exits the Pub and runs back into Rafe. Rafe says he came to give her back her pen since it was one that her parents gave her.

They both agree that their feelings were real. Rafe tells her that he still cares about her. Carrie says that if he really cared about her then he never would've slept with Nicole. Rafe questions what she's talking about. Carrie tells him not to lie because she knows Nicole is pregnant with his child.
Nicole can't believe EJ is shocked since there's no honor among thieves. Nicole brings up them stealing millions from John. EJ reveals that was all his plan and not Stefano's. EJ says he planned it, executed it, and brought John down. EJ shouts that he did it to prove to Stefano that he was ready to run his company but he stole that from him like he stole the election. EJ screams in frustration and calls himself a fool. Nicole sees he's upset and very angry but tells him to keep his head on straight. Nicole warns him not to tell anyone that he set up John. Nicole asks why he thinks Stefano was undermining his plot to frame John. EJ points out the folder and calls it plenty of evidence that leaves no doubt. EJ screams about Stefano pulling his strings and probably laughing behind his back.
Austin admits to Billie that there were times he didn't think that he and Carrie were going to make it since she was pulling away. Austin thinks finding out that Abigail lied turned things around. Austin says she can tell now that Carrie wants their marriage to work. Billie thinks it's one thing to say it and another to make it happen. Austin jokes about her support. Billie doesn't mean to negative and just hopes it works for them. Austin thanks her for her support. Billie thanks him for all of his support as well. Austin tells her that he is determined to be the guy that Carrie originally fell in love with and if they get back to the way they were then she will never look at Rafe again.
Carrie shouts at Rafe that he should've said he never slept with Nicole but Nicole ended up pregnant.

Chad and Melanie continue kissing in bed. Chad tells her that he loves her. Melanie says the same as they continue.
Nicole tells EJ that Stefano could have his reasons for what he did and may have been trying to protect him. EJ thinks Stefano does not care about him or anyone but himself. Nicole reminds EJ that he's not the only one that's hurting and brings up the investors that poured millions into John's fund. EJ shouts back that he was going to give them the money back and that was the whole point of the class action lawsuit. EJ states that John was the only person that was supposed to be hurt. Nicole asks what happened to all the money if EJ stole it. EJ reveals that he put it into the folder of offshore accounts that were supposed to be secure but it's now all gone with not a penny left.
Austin brings coffees for he and Billie as Billie says she was just waiting on a business call. Billie suggests Austin call Carrie to check in and say hi.
