She panics and doesn’t know what to do, while Franco gently takes her hand that is holding the knife and tells her Silas is dead. Nina gets agitated and asks him to stop the bleeding, but there is no pulse.. she tells Silas she was angry and is sorry, but Franco stops her – she can trust him, and wants to know what happened? She was angry at Silas and wanted to confront him, pounded on the door, but he wouldn’t open it.. she turned the knob and found him lying there.. a knife in his back. She tried to pull the knife out, and asks if he believe her? He says he believes her completely because he loves her. He hugs her close.. then says no one else will believe her, so they need to get out of there. He wants her to sneak back in to Shadybrook – a perfect alibi – and she can’t tell anyone she knows Ava is alive, or Silas kidnapped Avery. They would be motives for murder. She agrees, but first wants to say goodbye to Silas. She lies down on the floor next to him and remembers when they first met.. and all their shared moments.. this isn’t fair and she will never forget him. Franco says they need to clean up and cover her tracks.. she tells him she loves him and they kiss over Silas’ body. After she leaves, Franco wipes the knife clean, and talk to Silas about Kiki – poor kid has enough to deal with.. a lying mother, cheating bastard boyfriend.
