Brady told Madison that he feared that she was hiding something from him that could end their relationship. Will had a serious with talk with Sonny about what it felt like to be gay and finally come out to family and friends. Sonny suspected that Will's interest was more than casual conversation.

Carrie and Rafe, excited to have solved their first paid case, acted on their long-held feelings for each other. Abigail told Jack and Jennifer that she intended to model for Mad World Cosmetics even though Jennifer was strongly opposed to the idea. Hope and Stefano opened the safe deposit box, but were apprehensive about how the contents might affect their lives. Abe scored well at the debate by giving E.J. a taste of his own medicine. Nicole accused Abe of knowing the contents of the questions beforehand and playing dirty politics. E.J. admitted to Nicole that he kept Will around because Will, not Lucas, had shot him, and that he was using the information to blackmail Will. Nicole, confused why E.J. showered Will with gifts, seemed convinced that Will was also blackmailing E.J., but E.J. denied it and Nicole believed him. Later, Will packed his bags and prepared to leave the loft and move into his new apartment, but not before a confrontation with Sami. Sami pressured Will to tell her what was wrong, but instead, they got into an intense argument. Will, furious and frustrated with his mother, blurted out that he had seen her and E.J. having sex the night that they found Johnny. Sami, horrified at the revelation, tried to explain to Will what had happened that night, but he refused to listen and called his mother a common whore. He told her that he wanted no part of her excuses and that he never wanted to see her again, and then left. Sami, seeking comfort from Rafe, went to his office and walked in on him and Carrie in a passionate kiss. Madison placed another call to her mysterious contact and advisor, and the call went to a woman's phone at Heathrow Airport.
