All caught up

I was on vacation last week and am now all caught up. I have a few questions. How on earth did Eve get back to the police station before Eli? Also, why on God’s green earth would Marlena blab to Eve that the police had Claire’s phone with Eve’s messages on it.

I also did not like the hidden agenda over JJ losing his apartment. That wouldn’t even be legal. It’s much harder to evict a tenant than that.

I enjoyed the last few scenes with Claire. Does this mean Belle and Shawn are staying?

Why would Kate and Ted go along with Kristin? It seems she is more of a danger alive and under the radar than if they had just outed her.

Loved Xander stealing that mask, but does this mean no more AZ and the character of Nicole? I hope Nicole is alive and well somewhere and she returns soon.
