She accuses her of stealing her John and then ruining her romance with Brady, hence her hatred. Time to pay!

Back at the loft Ciara insists she is really ready. Tripp brings up Ben. She feels badly about that. He clumsily claims she does not owe him. She fears he does not trust in their feelings and blames herself. He suggests they stop talking so they kiss again and again. Then they head to her room ... Rafe swears he believes Hope. However, someone planted that proof which makes her look bad for finding it. She sighs it did seem too good to be true. Rafe now wants to know who planted it ... Stefan grins he had the place cleaned so Sami would only get herself arrested for trespassing if she called the cops. She claims he is like Stefano. Stefan likes the sound of that as they never met.
