In court, Abe whips out the razor Bernardi almost used on Rafe. It just came into his possession. Sami gasps and cries tears of joy. Bernardi's prints were found on the handle and the lab found his blood on it from the shooting. EJ flashes to his realization that Stefano's had the razor all along. Abe shows a photo of Gloria Nash, who was a nurse at University Hospital until she got wind that SPD was questioning the nurses again about the case. She took off for Morocco, where there's no extradition treaty. The cops searched her apartment and found the razor, financial records from a bank in Morocco and lifted DNA and prints that match Bernardi. They recovered emails to her from Bernardi. They're not sure the gunshot wound is what killed him. Abe shows Kayla's and the surgeon's testimony which states the cop died of complications after surgery. Gloria Nash was on duty and in the vicinity of the recovery room the night Bernardi died. She had the means and motive to kill him. He had just informed her he'd never leave Marge because of little Timmy. The judge takes Justin and Melinda into his chambers. They return moments later, and the state withdraws all charges against Sami. There are hugs all around.
At home, Jenn worries to Maggie about JJ. She's been telling her and Jack's family not to take JJ in. Maggie worries. The temperature is dropping outside. Does she want him sleeping in the streets?

She's surprised Kristen didn't figure the whole thing out herself. Marlena gets a call and is delighted to hear charges against Sami were dropped. She tells Victor and leaves, beaming.
Kristen pops by the rectory and asks why Nicole came after her earlier. Nicole would rather see Brady with Lindsay Lohan. Kristen doesn't think Nicole was drunk. Nicole snorts at that and Kristen rubs her pre-cana forms in her face. All Nicole can do is imagine how hot Eric is underneath the white collar. Kristen takes a call from EJ and hears Sami's good news. She hurls insults at Nicole, who hisses and shows her claws as Kristen goes.

Theresa meets JJ in the park. She's thankful he didn't tell the cops she was one of his buyers. He asks if he can stay with her but she tells him to go home. Since he won't, she gives him all the money she has. He can take his time getting it back to her.

Smiling, he shoots EJ a look. Kristen arrives. Sami hugs Marlena. They drink champagne. Eric arrives and Sami rushes into his arms. Everyone files out eventually and Sami and EJ go upstairs for sex. Afterward, Sami asks how EJ made it happen. He says all that matters is he made sure she'll never be taken from the kids again.
