Kayla is still cross and excuses herself. Steve sighs she is having a hard time. John gets it ... Stefan stops fake Gabi by warning her that Chad catching her here could cause trouble for them in the Andre case. She conceals herself in the closet as Stefan opens the door. Chad is certain he heard voices. Stefan insists he is alone and had Viv on speaker phone. Stefan suspects he wanted to find a Gabi lookalike and states his suspicions are silly. Chad talks sabotage. Stefan denies knowing Andre before or any sabotage and suggests he back off. Chad will not so he warns he might not like the truth. Chad wonders what he means ... Rafe apologizes to the justice, who makes a joke about jumpy grooms. Rafe is all for this plan although ... Hope raises an eyebrow ...

At the loft Claire is enjoying ice cream with Marlena. She complains about Ciara being a hero with Tripp and adds she is happy they are alright.

Marlena probes and seeks only the facts so Claire produces the evidence on her phone ... John feels to blame but Steve reminds him he has saved him so many times! Kayla returns and acts curt but Steve wants John to stay. The results are in and he is losing the sight in his second eye. Needless to say Steve is stunned ...

Back at the Kiriakis mansion Victor is disgusted and declares he is married. Viv smugly states she saw his Maggie check into the Salem Inn and offers to be his lady Macbeth.

Then when Chad realizes he was wrong to accuse him he will accept his apology. Exit Chad ... Marlena has heard the recording and asks Claire why she did it.

Marlena questions Claire on her sincerity ... Rafe stammers he did not have time to write any vows and praises Hope as the most amazing woman. She takes his breath away and he doesn't know what to say. He loves and wants her forever. Then he puts the lasso around them both and commits to their lifetime of love and respect. He takes her to be his wife and she takes him to be her husband. They giggle and finish for better for worse … forsaking all others. The candles are aglow as he slips on her ring. She smiles and kisses his, then she slides it on his finger. They are now pronounced husband and wife by the justice of the peace. Rafe kisses the bride. Just married in secret!
