Eve walks out of the town square and calls Vincent, complaining that Ben is on his way to Marlena's office now to find out why he was having a nightmare last night. Vincent asks what she wants him to do about it. Eve wants him to make sure the session doesn't happen and to give Ben another dose guaranteed to make him have absolutely no feelings for Ciara so that he will kill her, no more excuses.
Jake tells Gabi that Gwen was not happy last night when he walked out on her to help Gabi. Gabi complains that her jealousy is really annoying her. Jake thinks there is more to it than that. Jake tells Gabi that he got home last night and told Gwen that she needed his help on the meeting because Chad flaked out and that it didn't go so well. Gabi points out that Chad was suddenly back. Jake adds that Gwen just said to him a few moments ago that she's certain Chad is putting an end to Gabi's manipulative ways as they speak. Jake feels it's like she knew Chad was there. Jake then says there's no way as she wouldn't do it. Gabi then declares that Gwen tipped off Chad.
Gwen tells Chad that there's no shot in hell that Jake could pull off a business dinner. Chad says it's a good thing that Shin is looking for a CEO, not a mechanic. Chad adds that almost everyone he knows wants something bad to happen to Gabi. Chad says he has to clean up the mess they made and thanks Gwen for the heads up. Gwen tells him that it's been nice working with him and screwing Gabi over. Chad calls it a good arrangement and says as long as they keep their alliance a secret, he thinks they can stay a few steps ahead of them.
Gabi insists to Jake that Gwen tipped Chad off about their dinner with Shin. Jake points out they don't know for sure. Gabi argues that Gwen can't keep her mouth shut and calls her a tramp. Jake argues that Gwen is not a tramp, she's a one man woman and he's that man.
Rafe puts Hope's badge back on her and they get close until Ciara walks in. Ciara wonders if she was interrupting.
Ben goes to Marlena's office but instead finds Vincent at her desk. Ben shuts the door and grabs Vincent, asking where Marlena is. Vincent responds that he's afraid she won't be joining them and they are going to pick up where they left off.
Claire walks out of the town square and bumps in to Eve. Eve tells her that she doesn't have time for this. Claire argues that they both know the only reason that she's back in Salem and she's not going to let her hurt Ben, Ciara, or anyone else. Eve questions what she's doing. Claire tries to call the police but Eve takes her phone and says she can't let her do that.
Rafe informs Ciara that he was just welcoming Hope back to the police force. Hope explains that she thought maybe she could make up for some of the damage she caused. Ciara points out that she was brainwashed so the damage wasn't her.

Gabi mocks Gwen's devotion to Jake. Gabi argues that Gwen went straight to Chad to ruin any chance Jake had at being anything but a mechanic. Jake repeats that they don't know for sure. Gabi decides she knows how to find out.
Chad tells Gwen that one setback won't stop Gabi. Gwen says she has noticed the way she flings herself at Jake. Chad insists that Gabi wants money and power more than anyone he's ever met so this war won't be over after one battle. Chad asks if he can continue to rely on Gwen's support. Gwen tells him that she will do anything it takes to bring Gabi down. Gwen adds that she does have a favor to ask since she's helping him so she thinks it's only fair he sweetens her end of the deal. Chad asks what she wants. Gwen responds that she wants him in her bed and drops her robe.
Rafe tells Ciara that they still haven't found Eve but having Hope back on the case will help because she's the best detective there is. Ciara reminds them to go after Vincent too. Hope says they won't stop until they find him. Ciara notes that it seems Eve has left Salem. Hope says they can't be sure and warns them not to let their guard down.

Ben questions why he let Vincent go. Vincent sits Ben down and says he will get used to doing what he tells him to. Ben has flashbacks to being tortured. Ben says he tries to remember but he can't remember what Vincent did. Vincent says that's because he doesn't want him to and he won't remember this session either. Vincent adds that Ben won't even remember seeing him here. Vincent says he is getting Ben's will under his control and conditioning him to do as he's told. Ben asks what he was told. Vincent says he was told to murder his wife.
Chad tells Gwen that she's being ridiculous. Gwen clarifies that she said she wanted him in her bed, not that she wanted to have sex with him. Chad questions if she just wants to cuddle. Gwen explains that she sent Jake to get her coffee so he'll be back any minute and she wants him to come back to Chad pretending to make love to her. Chad questions if she stole Gabi's playbook. Gwen knows Jake may have a wandering eye but he loves her and tends to make her jealous at times so this will make him crazy. Chad says Jake will take the crazy out on him so he's not going to get beat up for Gwen's revenge. Gwen sees someone coming so she grabs Chad and kisses him as Gabi then walks in and sees them.
Ciara questions Eve coming back to town. Rafe says she might already be here. Ciara argues that she can't possibly take the risk. Hope doesn't think she focuses on the risk.

Ciara informs them that he's seeing Marlena now.
Ben has more flashbacks to Eve and Vincent trying to get him to wrap the necktie around the mannequin with Ciara's face displayed on it. Ben questions Vincent telling him to kill Ciara.

Ben says Vincent may mess with his mind and try to brainwash him but there's nothing anyone can do to make him hurt Ciara ever. Vincent says when it comes to killing pretty young women, Ben can't help himself.
Eve tells Claire it's her duty to get revenge on Ben. Claire argues that Eve blew up a church full of innocent people. Eve argues they were celebrating a murderer getting everything he wanted. Eve asks if Claire stopped to think when she set the cabin on fire. Eve argues that Claire felt she had the right to burn Ciara alive. Eve says that Ben strangled the life out of her daughter and killed her. Eve adds that everyone else may forget what Ben did so if there was a death or two, it would've just been collateral damage. Claire says she is scaring her which Eve says is good. Eve reminds Claire that when she was going through her personal hell, she didn't turn her in and was there for her so Eve asks Claire to walk away and forget she ever saw her so she can get the justice she deserves.
Gabi pulls out her phone and tells Gwen and Chad not to let her stop them as she will send it to Abigail. Chad questions if they were in this together since they think alike.

Ciara tells Rafe to try not to let Hope go this time as she exits the room. Hope assures that Ciara was talking about them working together. Rafe calls it excellent advice.
Vincent tells Ben that randomly strangling young women isn't a bad habit but a compulsion. Ben responds that he's not that same person. Vincent says he might not want to be but he is. Ben shouts that he's not crazy. Vincent calls him a murdering psychopath and says he couldn't make him kill anyone if he wasn't, but part of him likes to kill and he knows how to get to that part of him. Ben tells Vincent that he may have messed with his mind but he'll never hurt Ciara. Ben says he will get as far away from her as possible and never see her again if he has to. Vincent says as much as Ben hates it, he's the boss of him. Vincent states that Ben's conscious mind is trying to battle his subconscious and he's about to give his subconscious a power boost. Vincent raises a syringe and calls it a performing enhancing drug for psychos. Vincent brings up that Ben killed four people and made headlines then got caught and convicted but got out and married the police commissioner's daughter.

Claire says she was crazy and dangerous but now now while Eve still is. Claire repeats that Eve needs help, not revenge, because killing Ben won't bring Paige back but it will kill any chance she has of being a human being. Claire calls Eve pathetic so Eve then slaps her. Claire adds that Paige would agree with her and would want her to get help. Claire suggests maybe they bumped into each other so that she can help her. Claire asks her to let her help her for Paige.
