His friendship is especially precious but she also loves his smile. She longs to make him happy. Joey sighs and she asks what is the matter. He apologizes and admits he does not feel the same way.

Kate thinks he deserves better than settling. Chad realizes he has to be honest with his wife. Kate, however, feels honesty is highly overrated. No need to break Abigail's heart ... The Hernandez door is open and the kitchen appears to have been trashed. Hope enters, gun drawn, and calls out to anyone there. Then she goes into the next room, not knowing what to expect. She soon ends up in the bathroom, where Rafe awaits in a bubble bath. He drawls she deserved a break. Hope tells him he is in trouble and calls him crazy. He kisses her, surrounded by bubbles ...
