Sami and EJ arrive at Salem PD, where Mr. Burke awaits in Roman's office. Roman explains they are meeting there because Roman was busy with work and couldn't get away. Marlena and John arrive and much to everyone's surprise, Nicole shows up. Nicole's there to testify about EJ and Sami's unholy matrimony, she says with a grin. An angry Sami demands that Roman kick Nicole out but when he doesn't, Nicole confesses her confusion. She thought EJ was born in the USA, and asks if that would mean he had dual citizenship. EJ explains that would have been true but when he was born, his mother tried to pass him off as someone else's baby, so his original birth certificate became null and void. They moved to the UK and his mother married Edmond, a UK citizen, and EJ became a UK citizen because of it. He is legally a citizen of the UK. Nicole is confused and snorts that she could use a drink after that confusing back story. John goes inside Roman's office to talk with Mr. Burke. While John's with Mr. Burke, Sami paces. Marlena and Roman ask Sami to stay calm. Nicole munches on a doughnut and says she's there to help. EJ threatens Nicole not to say a word against he or Sami while talking to Mr. Burke. Sami thanks him for sticking up for her, but she worries it's not enough to help.
Mr. Burke asks John questions about EJ and Sami. Later, Nicole comes out of Roman's office giggling with Mr. Burke. Nicole grins as Mr. Burke kisses her hand and Nicole teases Sami when she says Johnny will have a nice time visiting his father in the UK! Sami jumps Nicole and is pulled off her by Roman and Marlena. Mr. Burke calls Sami and EJ into Roman's office.
At the pub, Chloe wants proof that Victor knows where Brady is. Nicole says she hacked into Victor's computer to find out about how much he's worth and found checks for a rehab clinic in Switzerland. She hired a private investigator, who found out that it was Brady.
Quietly, at the bar, the mystery man holds a knife to Stephanie's midriff and escorts her out of the pub. Max returns, confused to find her gone.
Back at the pub, Nicole shows Chloe a photo of Brady at the rehab unit and comments that it doesn't seem like Brady would do drugs. Chloe says, "I tried to get him away from them…. I respected his addiction." Victor and Philip interrupt and Victor tells Chloe that Brady's addiction was her fault! Philip is confused until Nicole brings him up to speed. Chloe is astounded and calls Victor a bastard, for lying to everyone. Victor tells her to let them know her part in this. Chloe admits that Brady was lonely, so she introduced him to her friends. Victor shouts that they were drug addicts. Chloe says she tried to help him but Victor blames her for Brady's addiction. Chloe is angry that he let her take the blame for this and calls him a heartless bastard. Nicole grins and comments how much fun this is. Chloe leaves with Philip and Nicole laughs at Victor, then leaves.
Back at the DiMera mansion, EJ and Sami argue about their arrangement and Sami admits that she would prefer to live in separate apartments and for things to go back to normal. EJ is upset and tells her she's incapable of hiding her true feelings. He wonders if they should give up but Sami suddenly has a change of heart. Nicole lets herself in, ready to discuss her divorce. Sami is annoyed at her presence and they bicker before Nicole shares the news that Victor kicked her out of the house. Sami giggles and Nicole says she spilled a big secret to Chloe about Victor. Sami's interest is piqued and she agrees to make Nicole a dry martini if she spills the beans! Nicole tells them that Victor was hiding Brady at a drug facility in Switzerland. Sami is shocked.
When Victor arrives to Chelsea's room, Nurse Jenny tells him Chelsea's getting tests. He can wait for her. Nicole arrives and asks him, "What part of we're married don't you understand?" She is angry that he kicked her out of his house and refuses to go. She asks if he threw Chloe out. "I did, I've thrown out all the trash," he says, without a trace of a smile. Nicole threatens to tell his dirty little secret and Victor accuses her of becoming more dramatic each year. Nicole threatens to spill his secret if he doesn't do things her way. She storms out of the room.
Back at the DiMera mansion, Marlena reminds John they're still married and married people do not date others. John likes that she's jealous and calls it very sexy but Marlena denies being jealous. "I'm upset," she says. She wants him to act like her husband and he retorts that he will, if she treats him like his wife and comes to his bed! Once the doorbell rings, he tells her that the dinner is strictly business. "I was toying with you," he says! Marlena is happy to hear it's business and wants to dine with them but he refuses. Nicole arrives dressed to seduce and Marlena leaves. Nicole wants to discuss Marlena but John would rather talk about them and how good they could be together. Just as he says this, Marlena overhears and finds Rolf and tells him to help her get the old John back. He denies knowing how to.
Back inside the room, John asks Nicole to fly to Napa with him to sample wine, Saturday. He says they'll fly off to Paris for a week after. Nicole thinks it sounds wonderful but asks if it will interfere with business. She brings up that she knows he and Victor are engaged in a war over the docks. John stiffens and tells her, "Took you long enough. You came here to spy on me." He tells her, "You didn't honestly think this tasteless dress would turn my head." He wants to know who she's working for, Victor or little Philip! Nicole calls him paranoid but he knows it was Philip. Victor doesn't trust her. Nicole gets up to leave and Marlena waltzes in. Nicole says she's sorry for Marlena's loss. John tells Nicole she was a terrible spy and she storms out. John and Marlena are impressed with the way each other handled Nicole and John thinks Marlena's starting to accept him. He tells her Philip made a mistake infiltrating his organization. He's putting an end to this.
Nicole meets Chloe at the Brady Pub. She finds out Philip is with Victor. Nicole rants that he never should have kicked her out and Chloe snorts that he should have at least waited until she tried to kill him again! They laugh and Nicole says she likes the new Chloe. She has a backbone. Chloe takes it as an insult and wants to leave but Nicole stops her by telling her Victor knows where Brady is!
At the gym, Sami runs the treadmill when EJ shows up. He asks where the twins are and Sami says they're with the gym's babysitter. Nicole arrives and tells EJ that he looks good. He returns the compliment and Nicole turns to Sami and tells her it's good to see she's working on her baby weight. They start slinging insults and Nicole says she has a theory about why Lucas shot EJ. He prefers the prison sex to sex with Sami! Sami thinks if EJ doesn't take care, he'll be walking 'Pookie' soon, if he keeps working with Nicole. She stalks off, needing a sauna. EJ follows her and Sami tells EJ that he doesn't know much about her. Nicole stops by and tells them she hopes that the makeup sex is as good as hers was, with Lucas! She decides that's impossible and when Maggie arrives, she slings insults at her and Maggie introduces Nicole to her trainer, Jillian (Trainer from The Biggest Loser - see comings and goings), who tells them her philosophy "No investment, no return." She looks at Nicole, who doesn't think she needs training and tells her that it looks like Nicole's assets are bottoming out! Nicole slaps her butt and says, "There ain't nothing wrong with these assets!" Maggie tells Jillian that the exercises she gave were killer! Jillian thinks they'll see huge changes to her physical stamina if she keeps it up and asks Sami and Nicole to sign up for a few sessions. Sami has signed up but Nicole refuses. Sami slings insults at Nicole and tells Jillian that Nicole hydrates by drinking two quarts of vodka a day. Jillian tells Nicole she's too thin and wanders off. This sets Nicole off. "Could she be a bigger loser?" Nicole asks. "Yeah, if she was you," comments Sami as she leaves the area. Nicole asks EJ if he has time to discuss her case. He does, but beforehand, he congratulates Maggie on "going green" with her restaurant.
Sami leaves the steam room, unsatisfied and found by Maggie. Sami tells her that being in the steam room reminded her of Lucas. She agrees that things aren't going well. Maggie thinks the twins are happy but Sami thinks they're too young to know she's living with the wrong man. She sadly tells Maggie Lucas won't see her.
Nearby, EJ tells Nicole the next step will be to start preliminary divorce proceedings. He excuses himself to check on the twins and later, Sami spies EJ holding Allie with Nicole at his side. Sami goes to them and takes Allie from EJ's arms and says that she is the only one who was authorized to take her out. EJ quietly tells her he's authorized as well, but Sami ignores him and yells at Nicole to stay away from her kids. When the baby starts to cry, Sami blames Nicole and takes her away. When she returns, she tells EJ to keep Nicole away from the children. Nicole retorts that Sami should relax. She didn't even know whose kid she was holding anyway. She thinks it's a good thing Sami didn't have triplets! "Can't tell the fathers without a program!" Sami can't contain her anger any longer and punches Nicole in the face. As Nicole lands on the floor, EJ holds Sami back! Nicole gets up and says she could take a restraining order out on her but Sami replies that she doesn't want to be anywhere near her. Nicole stalks off and Sami seethes as Nicole mumbles that she's got to prepare for her date with John Black.
