In Europe, Stefano begs Kristen to save their fractured family. She's incredulous that after all this time he wants her to make peace between him and the rest of the family. She appreciates the checks he's been sending her over the years but flashes to John saving her all those years ago and to a confrontation with Marlena and says there are too many bad memories. Stefano wants her to meet Chad. "What kind of a name is Chad?" she asks and flat-out refuses to go back to Salem.

Sami and Rafe continue to wait for their sandwiches at the cafe. Rafe calls it a bad omen. Sami gives him a mint to tide him over. He gets a message from Daniel. This prompts discussion about Nicole's true baby daddy. Sami believes Rafe's telling the truth and they kiss as John and Marlena walk in. Sami meant to tell them she and Rafe had reunited. John and Marlena are happy about it. They all agree the idea of Sami with EJ made them sick. John privately tells Rafe he's impressed Rafe won against EJ as Sami tells Marlena she won't screw things up this time. Marlena and John take their own table and talk about how it's smooth sailing ahead. They start making out and Marlena groans, "Oh baby. Oh baby."

At home, Victor refuses to let Daniel get involved with a "neurotic, vodka swilling tramp." He thinks Daniel's being played and reminds Daniel Nicole attempted to kill him. They continue to argue until Brady calls Daniel with the news about the accident. Everyone heads to the hospital.


At the hospital, Cameron and Maxine are with Nicole while she gives birth to her son. Everyone gets quiet and Nicole asks what's going on. The baby was unresponsive, Cameron says. He assumes the child suffered trauma during the fall. Nicole says nothing and then asks how he is. "He didn't make it," Cameron says. Maxine hands the baby over and Nicole smiles at him and greets him and then starts to sob. Maxine cries along with her. Later, Daniel arrives and Maxine tells him the baby didn't make it. Daniel gives himself a moment before heading in and comforting Nicole. He hugs her and she beats on his back and sobs. She tells Daniel Jennifer pushed her. In the waiting room, Brady fills Maggie and Victor in and Billie calls. Brady shares the news about the baby.

Back at the square, Billie tells Jennifer the bad news. Jenn starts to bawl.

Back at the hospital, Roman arrives and Brady gives his statement and fills Roman in on Nicole and Jenn's arguments this past week. He flashes to the last one at the house. Brady overheard Nicole say Jenn pushed her. Roman takes off. In Nic's room, she tells him Jennifer pushed her and killed her baby. He's in shock and later leaves so Cameron can give Nic a sedative. She cries herself to sleep as Daniel goes out to tell Maggie and Victor what Nicole's accusing Jennifer of.
