She kisses his cheek and opts to go for a walk alone. Tripp looks a tad disappointed ... Hope warns Ben she should and she could keep investigating or close his case. She would be willing to close it if he did not stay in Salem or go anywhere near her daughter. He soap stares. She suggests he choose to be a free man anywhere in the world ...
