Bo tells Hope not to keep secrets from him, whatever she finds she should tell him and he'll go to Europe to check it out, and while he's there, he'll check out Ireland. Hope accuses Bo of not wanting to help her, he's only using this as an excuse so he can go to Ireland. Bo tells Hope that now she knows how he feels about the secrets she's keeping from him. Hope says perhaps she just wanted to sort through things before talking to him, and she doesn't understand why he can't be more understanding.

Abe says no, and tells her about his troubles at the DiMera Mansion. He hates living there and feels that Lexie is changing, she's so moody. Fay suggests that perhaps Lexie is pregnant. Abe doubts that, because she would have told him, and he thinks it has something to do with Stefano. Faye says that Lexie has been through a lot lately, and things will probably settle down. Abe apologizes for dropping all of this on her, but she says she is here for him anytime. Suddenly, Abe gets a call from Bo, who wants to know why he just got paged.
