Tripp sighs she is with Ben as they speak ... Hope angrily whispers Ben was and is a natural born killer. Ciara is confused. Ben wants a word alone. She says to state his case now so he does.

Alone with Ben, Shawn shares how glad he is he will no longer be able to get near his loved ones. Ben suggests Hope is no saint and urges smart Shawn to do the math. The timing was too coincidental and Hope wanted him gone so she planted that proof. Shawn pauses and remembers her vowing to protect Ciara, promising to remove Ben the problem ...

Rafe returns and asks Hope if she forgives him. She talks protocol but Rafe believes he did the right thing regardless of the consequences. He asks about Ben. Hope shows him the new improved proof that was just found. Rafe gives her a dubious stare ... Claire is thrilled and gets off the phone, gushing to Tripp they got their miracle. Marlena woke up!
