Nicole arrives at the mansion and EJ finds her stunning. He shares the visit to the zoo with Johnny with her and apologizes. He's running late. He asks her to wait for him to shower, but asks what it was she wanted to share with him the other day. She tells him the night is young, and she talks to her baby about being one happy family. John interrupts. "I assume you're here to see junior." He takes in the romantic table and she explains she and EJ are on their first official date. He even bought her a present! John offers her a drink but she takes a rain check. He's surprised, so she claims to have stomach issues and has to lay off the booze for a while. John doesn't buy it, but when she tries to change the subject, he pressures her. She asks where Rolf is and he tells her he's holed up with Stefano. She says with his quirks, she feels he's trustworthy, and comes clean. "I'm pregnant!" John's shocked. "EJ's kid?" She smirks. "No, Stefano's! Of course, EJ's." She tells him about how she was shot in the abdomen once and was told she couldn't have children. She finds it a miracle, and strangely, she is alright with this, even though she never really liked children. "I'm thrilled. I really am!" John says, "I've never seen you this happy without a drink!" John thinks it's sensational and congratulates her. She admits she's nervous about EJ's reaction. She doesn't want to raise the baby alone. EJ arrives and apologizes for being so late, but John says she has entertained him. He leaves and Nicole calls EJ sexy. EJ calls her alluring as ever and he's starved for adult attention.
Back at the DiMera mansion, EJ tells Nicole he has to go to University Hospital for Sami. "What about our date," Nicole asks, but EJ apologizes. They'll have to resume it later. He leaves her with a kiss on the cheek.
Philip meets with some businessmen and EJ leaves, bumping into Nicole on his way out. He stops her. There's something she has to tell him and asks if he has a few minutes. He does, since his client is late, and she tells him she's pregnant. EJ's shocked. "You're pregnant, are you sure?" He tells her he believes in love and she has made him the happiest man in the world. They kiss passionately, and Nicole shakes herself awake from her daydream. She's about to tell him when his cell phone rings. His client cancelled, and he's upset, because he cancelled his day at the zoo with Johnny. Nicole reminds him he has the whole afternoon to take Johnny there. It's not too late! EJ realizes she's right and when he asks what it was she wanted to tell him, she prefers to wait. He asks for lunch tomorrow and Nicole asks for dinner tomorrow. EJ kisses her and asks her to come to the mansion for dinner. Just the two of them! He'll have the chef prepare something special! He's curious as to what this is about but she refuses to give hints. "Prepare for a big surprise," she says.
At the hospital, Daniel tells Kate he's not positive she has lung cancer and needs a biopsy. Kate's shocked and tells him she doesn't smoke. Shame that non-smokers account for 20% of all those with lung cancer. He hopes it's in the early stages, if she has it. She agrees to schedule the tests and asks that he keep quiet until they know what it is, definitely. Daniel is called away.
Daniel finds Nicole, leaning over the nurse's station feeling ill. Kate comes out of her room and asks what's wrong with Nicole. "What's wrong, did you run out of alcohol?" She walks away and Daniel says Kate makes a point. Nicole looks like she's going through the DTs. (Alcohol withdrawal.) Nicole tells Daniel she needs a drink- stat!
Daniel returns to Nicole in the trauma center. She moans that she needs a shot of booze. He tells her this is a fresh start for her. He's not sure it's Caroline's clam chowder, as she thinks, but they need to wait for the rest of the test results to come back. Nicole asks him about Chelsea. He shares that nothing has changed and asks about her own crisis. She tells him that Victor found out her marriage [to Trent] and their marriage is null and void. She has to pay back the money from the settlement. Daniel apologizes and she comments that at least someone is. Victor's ecstatic. Daniel goes to check on her tests. "Burn in hell, Trent," Nicole says, once he leaves.
Daniel calls Kate, who is already at a dinner meeting. She brushes him off and promises to schedule her biopsy later.
Daniel goes back to Nicole and she's writing a list of items to sell. Daniel asks if she's going to fight for her settlement. She is, but she's preparing for the worst. He knows what's making her nauseous. "You're pregnant." Nicole is shocked. "You've got to be kidding me."
Back at the crime scene, Steve arrives. Hope wants him to continue to investigate Trent's past. They both know that Caroline didn't do it but want to add Nicole to the suspect list. They're sure there are more. Steve doesn't like to speak ill of the dead, but he says he's sure many will be better off without him around. The coroner, Jordan, gives Hope a report. Trent had a bloody lip, he was punched, his wallet was stolen and he was scratched by someone with sharp fingernails. We see a montage of Nick looking at his bruised knuckles, Melanie looking at Trent's wallet and Nicole looking at her fingernails, before resting her hands upon her pregnant belly. Steve says to Hope, "I bet my good eye it wasn't Caroline." They find a piece of clothing on Trent's body. Hope hopes this will lead them to Trent's real killer.
At the Brady Pub, Nicole joins EJ. She is frantic. "We need to do damage control!" She explains that Victor found out about her marriage to Trent and is trying to revoke her divorce settlement. She says it's all because of that big mouth Bo Brady! She explains that Bo and Hope figured out the truth and the only concession Bo made was to let her tell Victor herself. She admits that Victor thought it was hilarious. She says she hates Bo Brady, and she hates her dearly departed husband even more! EJ asks what she means by that. Nicole says, "Did I really say that?" She says now that the whole world knows he pimped out his daughter, he's on his way out! EJ turns back to the matter of her money. He announces that they're going to portray her in court as a victim! Nicole says she earned every penny of her settlement - being married to Victor was no picnic! EJ suggests she say she had no idea that Trent didn't go through with the divorce after she left. Nicole laments the mistakes she has made in her life, trusting the wrong men. EJ asks if she can prove some of the things that happened to her. She says she probably can. EJ warns that if Trent takes the stand, it won't be good for them. Nicole says Trent isn't going to make it to the stand! EJ is suspicious - why are you acting like he's already gone? Nicole suddenly has to go and be sick!
Philip and Lucas dine at Chez Rouge and discuss how Chloe's helping him with Allie. He was able to meet Philip for dinner, because Chloe's babysitting. When Chloe shows up, both men are confused and Lucas is angry that she handed off babysitting duty to a sitter. He goes off to call the sitter, and Nicole shows up and asks for Philip's help. Lucas returns and says Gabrielle is fine and they're watching a movie. Chloe rants, "You mean Gabrielle hasn't smacked Allie around?" She stomps off, and Nicole goes after her. Philip tells Lucas that Chloe meant well.
Nicole and Chloe sit at the bar and discuss how Lucas is probably worried about what Sami would say. Chloe's tired of hearing about Allie. She's not sure she's ready for a family. She adores the child, but she's not cut out to be a mom, just yet. Nicole understands completely, she says. She can barely take care of herself, so she's not ready either! Chloe calls Nicole caring and compassionate. "You'd make a great mom," Chloe admits. Nicole is surprised and urges Chloe to tell Lucas how she feels. Lucas arrives by their side and apologizes for snapping at her. Chloe accepts and they go off to dance.
As they dance, Chloe looks miserable, and Lucas apologizes again. He likes having her in his life. Philip and Nicole talk, nearby. Nicole wonders if he can help her with Victor. Philip likes her. "God only knows why," he admits, but he can't help it. Nicole can't pay back the money she already spent, she says. Philip can't help and points out that she should have thought of that when she married Trent. She blames Bo for telling Victor. Philip says to talk to her lawyer or reconsider the annulment with Trent. Nicole doesn't want to negotiate with Trent. "He should be shot dead and buried in an unmarked grave." She'd do it herself if she had the means. Philip tries to keep her quiet as she rants. Chloe and Lucas finish dancing and Lucas goes home. Chloe notices Nicole's pale. She's not feeling well and Chloe notices. Nicole goes home while Chloe asks if Philip knows what he wants. "Do you?"
Nicole calls EJ, nearby.
Nicole wanders outside the pub, nauseated again. Trent bumps into her, looking for Melanie. Nicole tells him he owes her, ten million dollars. "And I don't take checks!" She says the police found out that she's Misty Circle and married to him. She runs off to get physically ill again and Trent says, "Something you ate?" She thinks it's Caroline's chowder, she admits and asks again for her money. He refuses. She looks just as good as she always did. Maybe 'Locker Room Lolita' will make a comeback, he asks. Nicole has loads of stuff on Trent and doesn't mind coming clean. He offers sex in exchange for money, causing Nicole to call him a pig. Max walks in on the two and calls Trent an SOB! He wants to know what's going on but Nicole brushes him off and goes into the pub. Max tells Trent to get lost and stay away from Melanie, or he'll make good on his threat to kill him. "I'm shaking in my boots," says Trent.
