Daniel goes to Brady at John's hospital bedside. Brady doesn't understand how he turned into someone who could do this to their own father. By the hub, a pale Theresa flashes to hitting John. Abe and Hope approach hoping she'll repeat her story. She yells that it's not a story. Abe says they lifted two sets of prints. Brady's and a partial of Victor's. Theresa snaps that it makes sense. Vic does live there. Abe says somebody wiped the poker clean. Theresa panics and babbles that the mansion has maids. They ask why she moved Brady and John. They must have been moved quite a distance for Brady to have hit John as hard as he was hit. Aiden arrives. Theresa hired him to protect her husband since Justin is in Dubai. Hope's taken aback. Brady walks up and says he doesn't need a lawyer. "I'm guilty." Theresa walks Aiden to the elevator and Brady asks her to leave him be for now. He tells the cops his memory's a blank. He doesn't see how it could be self-defense. They notice he's not wearing his wedding ring yet he married Theresa last night. Could she have been the reason for the argument? He just doesn't know. Daniel arrives and says John is in stable condition but has slipped deeper into a coma. They don't know if he'll ever wake up. His brain 'went into safe mode' to give it time to heal. Eve finds Theresa a mess in the community room. Theresa spills coffee. Eve says, "Don't get any coffee on your tacky dress." She asks what her sister has done now and spots the ring. Theresa asks her to keep the marriage quiet for now and throws Eve out of the room. Back by the hub, Brady goes to see John and Daniel's handing John's case to the staff for long-term care. He's swinging by the pub to eat. Eve eavesdrops and Maxine hopes Daniel goes home to sleep. He goes and Eve follows.
Aiden returns to the hospital and advances toward Hope. She flashes to their intimate dance. He's there to see more clients and they discuss how well the gala went. Theresa yells at Abe nearby and then takes Aiden aside. She says the cops are trying to put words into her mouth. She goes to John's room and flashes again to beating on him. Brady asks if she's lying about what happened. She denies it and hugs him. Brady says he needs an AA meeting. Things need to change. Outside, Hope and Abe comment on how jumpy Theresa is. Either she's telling the truth, lying, or she did it herself. They have to wait for Brady or John to fill in the blanks. Later, Hope and Aiden share an awkward moment, deciding not to meet alone anymore. Aiden goes and Hope flashes to almost kissing him. She gulps. At the hub, Maxine tells Jenn where Daniel is, in the hopes she'll follow.
In the hospital, Daniel tells Brady John's in critical condition. Brady remembers nothing but can't believe he would do this. Theresa flashes to hitting John and Daniel says they removed the clots and pressure but there's still more fluid inside John's head. His vitals are strong but Dr. Dan can't make guarantees though they're hopeful. Theresa wonders if he'll be able to talk once he recovers. Daniel furrows his brow. He doesn't know yet - John could slip into a coma. Marlena arrives and Daniel takes her aside and fills her in as Theresa takes Brady to the community room. He's beside himself. He doesn't even know why John was there. Theresa lies that he asked her to call him to share their wedding news. He's jarred. He removes his ring and needs to see his dad before he can deal with this. He goes to tell Marlena that he hit John. She's pissed. Abe's taken away by another cop and Brady goes on to say he was drunk but apparently hit John in self-defense. Marlena shoves Brady. "How could you?" She doesn't believe John would ever hurt his son. Daniel returns. John's slipping into a coma. Marlena goes to see him. Daniel pulls Brady aside and asks if he's sure he really did this, while Abe presses Theresa for more details since according to forensics, Brady and John were moved. Theresa says she was frantic and moved John to see if he was alive. Abe says the hit shows John may have been blindsided. He goes to talk to the cop again and Brady accuses Theresa of covering up for him. He goes to call Maggie. In John's room, Marlena knows she told John they were through but she can't lose him. Meanwhile, at the hub, Theresa asks Daniel if John will be able to talk when he wakes up. Daniel asks what she has done. Later, Abe returns and tells Theresa there were two sets of prints on the poker.
