Down at the Salem docks, Mimi struggled to figure out how the mysterious stranger, Stan, knew she had an abortion. A light bulb went off when Meems spotted Jan at the opposite end of the peer. Mimi confronted a bewildered Jan who insisted she told no one. Getting increasingly angry, Mimi punched Jan, knocking them both into the Salem River. Once the two climbed out, looking like drowned rats, they went another round in the blackmailing blame game.

Frustrated, Jan told her to worry more about Stan telling Rex than her.
Back at his motel room, Sami, as Stan, swore over Mimi, almost blowing his cover just to get even for Mimi's badmouthing Sami to Lucas.

At the penthouse, John lifted free weights, while Kate spotted his work out. John blamed himself for the ISA plan failing, saying the drugs and pain clouded his judgment, prevented him from staying three steps ahead. Kate brushed his blaming off and went to take a shower. With Kate out of the room, a tortured John went for his stash of drugs. John was horrified to find the bottles were empty and panicky, began to tear apart his dresser drawers looking for a back up supply. Mid-search, Kate came out and saw the painkiller bottles. Quick thinking, John said they were empties he was throwing out. Kate told him how proud she was of his kicking the habit and of Phil she said, "you are on the case, you're drug free and I trust you more than anyone in the world." After Kate went to her room, John dealt with his pain and Stan called him to offer a fresh supply of drugs. John said no but Stan insisted that without them, he couldn't help Philip, and John would never want to disappoint the women he loves. John hung up and checked on a sleeping Kate. Once dressed, John swore to find out who Stan is and why he knew all about him.
