Kayla’s worst nightmare has come true when she awakes to a menacing Orpheus (with Clyde) standing over her. Joey finds them, but is taken down by Xander. Steve returns home to find his family being held hostage and is forced to play nice with Orpheus. Clyde gets irritable, asks Orpheus to stop playing with his prey and go in for the kill, and when the convicts begin to argue, Steve leaps into action… only to be shot by Orpheus. Later, Steve wakes up, revealing he came prepared with a bullet proof vest, but Kayla informs him they took Joey… Hope and Aiden share an awkward night at the Brady pub. Aiden cuts his hand by accident and she tends to him. They talk about Chase, and Hope thinks Aiden should join him in Oregon… there’s nothing left in Salem for him. Rafe finally tracks down Hope, then later warns Aiden not to mess with Hope. But Aiden is more determined than ever to make Hope his again – as he clutches the file on Stefano’s murder.... Earlier, Claire roams the square alone, and lets out a scream when JJ surprises her. He lectures her and she brushes him off. Rafe interrupts, asks about Gabi, then rushes off to find Hope. JJ gets a text from Gabi needing help at the mansion, and tells Claire she’s coming with. Theo finds himself in an unbearable situation when the lights go out while being responsible for Arianna and Thomas. As the kids cause problems, Theo has a mental break, locking himself in the study. Adrienne and Lucas return, and plead for him to open the door… and in a huge moment, Theo overcomes his mental breakdown, and lets them in. JJ and Claire show up, and JJ goes to find Gabi. Claire takes Theo aside, and asks if he’s okay. He admits he’s better now that she’s here. Chad and Gabi find themselves trapped in the panic room… and it starts to heat up due to no ventilation. As they sweat, the two continue to bond when they touch back on the past and present, and how far they’ve come since meeting in high school. JJ rescues them, takes in the situation, and Gabi thanks her hero, but JJ is slightly unsettled.
