Sami and Rafe share their engagement news with Caroline. Their celebration is cut short when Bo arrives with urgent news. In private, Bo tells Sami and Rafe that EJ has been shot.

Once he’s off the phone, Vivian tells Victor she’s changed her mind – she’s not going to Tahiti. She wants to stick around for Isabella’s memorial. Nathan congratulates Chloe on her pregnancy.
