At the Salem PD, Lexie questioned the possibility of Abe being alive, while Tek called the signal a vicious hoax. Speculating that the signal's code might have been obtained by Stefano during Roman's captivity, John believed Marlena's missing body was a set-up. Bo's only solution was to exhume the rest of the victims' bodies while John argued not to put other families through his torment if the bodies would be missing.
