Kate feels woozy and sits on Gabi’s bed. Kate asks why he went from her bed to Gabi’s. Jake’s confused. Does she remember dumping him? Kate never did! “You were played by your sister. Your sister, Kristen, broke up with you.” Gabi and Jake struggle to believe this as Kate tells them what happened. Jake knew there was something off about her. Kate explains how she survived by jumping out of the moving car. Jake tries to comfort her but she laughs. It took him two days to jump into bed with Gabi. “I think the two of you deserve each other,” she says. She goes and Gabi tells Jake how humiliated she is. Jake reminds her nothing has changed.

Lucas is shocked that Kristen stuck Sami with a needle and they assume she’s gone off the deep end and is desperate. Sami hasn’t heard where Kate is yet but she knows she jumped out of a moving car. Lucas worries she’s dead but Sami says it’s Kate. That wouldn’t happen. Sami explains that she refused to help Kristen find Kate so she could kill her and that’s why she’s in there. Lucas knows he has to face the music soon as they get out of there and apologize to Chloe. Sami asks who cares about what Chloe thinks. Lucas does! Sami hates herself for cheating on EJ. She’s practically a “slut” like Nicole. Lucas defends Nicole. She tells him that she saw Nic stumble into Salem Inn with Xander. Lucas has a hard time believing that. Sami blames Nicole while Lucas thinks Nicole’s probably lonely. Sami has a conniption and Lucas tells her not to take her guilty conscience out on Nicole. They talk about the other times they’ve had sex and Lucas reminds her of the time she “slept with” EJ when Lucas was stuck underneath a beam. EJ coerced her into sex before he’d help Lucas get free. Sami yells at Lucas and defends EJ. She yells at him and then they start kissing.
Upstairs, Chloe appears and picks up the fire poker that Kristen left behind. Kristen as Susan comes from the secret door and surprises Chloe. Chloe asks why she was coming from the secret panel that leads to the secret room in the basement. “Susan” acts innocent. Marlena calls to tell her Brady’s out of surgery. They disconnect and “Susan” wants to go to the hospital with her. Chloe asks her what’s going on. She says she got a sign that told her to come here. Chloe doesn’t believe her and wants answers. Since “Susan” won’t spill, Chloe goes to the tunnels herself, but she can’t find the secret button to open it. Kate turns up when “Susan” grabs Chloe and Kate tells her to get her hands off of her. “It’s not Susan, it’s Kristen.” Chloe’s confused. Kate tells her Kristen broke out of prison to keep Chloe from Brady and if she makes the wrong move, “She’s gonna snap your neck like a twig.” Chloe realizes she’s right. That’s why Susan was so jealous of her. She rips off her wig and Kristen reveals Kate was right. Kristen’s tired of playing nice. She grabs Chloe and wrestles an arm around her back. Kate yells at her to stop it. Kate does nothing.
