Daniel finds an out-of-it JJ and reprimands him for getting drunk or high. JJ insists he didn’t drink and comes to the conclusion that he either drank a spiked soda by accident or someone drugged him on purpose.

He is shocked when he finds the incriminating photos on his phone and wonders if he has, indeed, been set up. 
 
Eric can’t get Nicole out of his mind, even as he tries to look to the future. Abigail is stunned Chad is back in town.

Will receives his first assignment from Zoe - he’s to write about Chad’s return to Salem. Will balks. Tough Zoe says, he’s free to turn it down but then she’ll have to assign it to someone who may not be as protective of Chad as Will might be.

EJ tells Sami he knows they still have a steep hill to climb but is hopeful and grateful she’s giving him a chance. They share a meal, and it leads to a close moment. They share a look, full of meaning and intent… and then EJ leads her upstairs.

Chad then discovers the envelope full of cash that Clyde gave Ben earlier and accuses Ben of stealing from the club.
