Hope picks up a picture of herself and Rafe as she cleans out her office. She holds it close. Meanwhile Rafe has seen Sami back to her room. She complains about Will hating her. Rafe is sympathetic and tells her to give him time. Mama Sami states they are all overreacting over what she did. Rafe is astounded she actually got Ben to attack poor Will all over again. He is not sure how to react ... At the hospital Abe finds out Lani and JJ are really over. Abe is relieved. She is here for the family now. They hug. Val enters and asks for a word alone ... At the square Claire and Tripp tell curious JJ there is nothing new to report on Theo. JJ is so sorry. Claire wonders how it all happened. JJ laments he must live with what he did and departs ...

Val sadly states she has been giving Abe space though she wants to be here for him from now on - unless it bothers him that she is to blame for Theo's unsuccessful surgery. She cries on his shoulder and he hugs her ... Gabi thinks Eli is barking up the wrong tree as JJ has a black girlfriend. Eli talks racial bias and what is happening in the world they live in. White kids breaking the law get excuses but not black kids. He believes it was in the back of JJ's mind that the black kid with the hoodie meant danger.

Gabi comes to see JJ. She brought him a burger in a bag plus his fav fries. He wonders why she is not with Eli. She cannot deny they had conflicting opinions. JJ notes he and Lani are over. The guilt about gunning down Theo was getting to him ... Tripp sits with Claire at the square. She hates feeling this helpless about Theo and the others who are suffering. Tripp gets an idea ... Claire texts Lani and Abe. She is amazed by the good response on social media about the candlelight vigil Tripp suggested for their Theo. She hugs him in thanks ... Gabi assures JJ that she knows he did not intentionally harm Theo. She mentions the almost firing thing and JJ asks what she means. She updates him on Abe firing Hope for refusing to fire JJ. Thank goodness Rafe the new commissioner convinced Abe not to fire JJ. JJ blames himself for ruining Hope's career ... Jen tells Hope it might not be over. Hope laments she does love Rafe but is afraid of losing him the way she lost Bo ...
