Nicole walks into the Brady Pub and asks Arianna what’s going on between her and Brady. Arianna says that she hopes EJ doesn’t find out that she’s asking questions like that. Nicole asks her what her problem is, but Arianna says Nicole has a problem with her and Brady. Nicole insists that she doesn’t mind that Brady sees other people, but to be nice to him since he was burned before. Brady walks by and overhears. Annoyed, he asks Nicole where she gets off discussing his personal life. Nicole quickly excuses herself and Brady tells Arianna to just ignore her. While Nicole spies on Brady outside the pub, Mia walks by and thanks her again for arranging for her to hold Grace. Before she leaves, Mia tells Nicole that she doesn’t think about Sydney anymore and she knows that she’ll be a good mother.
Melanie quits working at University Hospital and leaves Maxine standing with a dropped jaw. Melanie bumps right into a cute intern on her way out, who asks for directions. She stumbles over her words and watches him walk away. Brady finds her and pokes fun at her. She tells him she’s moving to London. Brady’s surprised but she explains that Max is leaving. Brady thinks she has a very good reason to stay there. He knows that the minute her life doesn’t seem perfect, she runs. He tells her him, Maggie, Philip and Stephanie are friends of hers. He decides to stand in for Max and be her "bro," and says, "How about that guy you just ran into?" Melanie laughs. She has no idea who he is. Brady’s got to stand in for Victor at the hospital board meeting and makes her promise not to leave town. He leaves and Melanie asks Maxine who the new guy is. The new guy comes up behind her as she asks and embarrassed, Melanie turns to him. She finds out he’s an intern but he doesn’t say his name. She offers to show him around, but he takes a call and makes plans to meet somebody at the Brady pub. He tells her he’ll take her up on the tour later and apologizes but has to dash. Maggie stops by and hands Melanie her wallet that she forgot. Maggie wanted to talk to her about living arrangements at the house but Melanie says that there’s no need. She’s completely fine with it! She has to run and leaves.
Brady walks in on Stephanie kissing Philip. Brady apologizes and Philip tells him about the truce with the DiMera’s. Brady thinks it’s great. "As long as it’s real!" Stephanie latches on to that and while Philip leaves the patio, Brady says he doesn’t exactly trust the DiMera’s. Talk turns to Grace and Stephanie says she’s supposed to go to the funeral. Brady admits the baby wasn’t adopted. It was Sami’s baby and fathered by EJ DiMera. Stephanie hears EJ’s name and her knees buckle. She feels for Sami and confesses she too would have kept it a secret if it were her child. Brady wonders if it’s a good idea that she attends the funeral, but she has to, she says. Philip may have to leave for Chicago, instead of going to the funeral, he says.
Brady stops Nicole at Java Café and confronts her about Grace. He heard about Sami lying to EJ about Grace and wonders what EJ will do to Nicole, when he finds out about Sydney. Nicole yells that he’s not going to find out! She and EJ are closer than ever, and though it’s sad that Sami lost Grace, EJ despises Sami now, making Nicole’s marriage solid. Brady reminds her that one simple blood test and she’ll be outed.
At Java Café, Nicole says she has covered all her bases and thinks she’s safe. "Unless Dr. Baker returns," says Brady, but Nicole brushes his concern aside. When Mia walks through the door, Brady tells Nicole that there’s always somebody who can out her! He gets coffee while Mia thanks Nicole for allowing her time with Grace. Nicole says not to mention it and she leaves. Brady returns and Nicole again tells Brady that Mia’s not going to be a problem. Nicole says if he’d stop haranguing her, he’d be more fun to hang out with. She says she has the perfect life, but Brady argues that love has nothing to do with it.
Stephanie hangs up the phone with her uncle Bo as Melanie and Brady enter the Kiraikis mansion. They came to see how she was. She’s upset as she just learned Owen has escaped.
On the patio, Philip tells Victor that the DiMera’s allowed Owen to escape so that he couldn’t implicate them in the kidnapping. Victor wants to take a meeting with the DiMera’s to set up a truce, but Stephanie can’t implicate EJ, or there won’t be one.
Bo and Hope arrive to the mansion and question Brady, in the living room. He has no idea who Owen is but thinks Stephanie could.
Outside on the patio, Philip tells Stephanie and Melanie about the DiMera/Kiriakis truce and asks if they’d be able to lie about the DiMera connection to Owen. Melanie’s fine with it but Stephanie can’t lie to her uncle. Philip tells Stephanie that if she doesn’t lie, EJ will come after them with a vengeance.
Back inside, Bo and Hope question Melanie and she says she has no idea who Owen was working for. Melanie asks if they can pull strings because she received a parking ticket, earlier in the week. She receives a blunt, "No," from Hope! Melanie leaves and Hope asks the same question of Stephanie. She doesn’t know who Owen worked for, she lies, and when she becomes upset, thinking of being kept in that drawer, Philip tells Bo and Hope to leave. After they’re gone, Philip promises Stephanie, no more secrets and lies.
Brady goes to the Kiriakis crypt and is followed there by Arianna, who says she likes to walk through the cemetery from time to time. Brady tells her the flowers are for his mother, who passed a long time ago. He has decided to come by more often. Melanie runs into the crypt, wanting to talk. Arianna leaves Brady with a lingering look and Brady turns talk to Melanie’s conversation with Bo and Hope. Melanie tells him to never mind that. She wants to talk about Arianna. "You’ve got the hots for her, don’t you," she teases.
Arianna bumps into Brady at the pub and her handbag contents spill out. "First Rafe and now my favorite handbag," she complains. Brady wonders what Sami did now. Arianna’s face falls. Later, they go into the pub, where Arianna explains what happened to Grace. Brady is sad and should call Sami and explains they were never that close. Arianna feels for Sami, but says something seems off with Rafe and Sami. She thinks things are too convenient. Why would Rafe step in without marrying Sami? She thinks they’re covering up something.
Brady arrives to see Victor, who had Henderson send him over. Victor wants to atone for some of the things he has done. He’s not proud of the thing he has done and wonders if Brady might forgive him. "Hell no," says Brady, thinking there’s no way to apologize for disowning him, especially when Brady was trying to help. Victor specifically asked him not to get the police involved. Brady knows if the police wouldn’t have come into it, Owen would have had Stephanie and Brady and Melanie would have died in the mausoleum. Victor wants to thank Brady and offers him pie. Brady refuses it and Victor again apologizes. "Will you come home?" The men shake hands and Brady smiles.
Inside the crypt, Brady looks for a way out. He sees two windows up at the top of the crypt, but Melanie’s not sure if he can climb the wall. Brady ignores her discomfort and climbs up the wall, saying he can break the window and somebody can hear them cry out. Brady falls off the wall and hits his head on the cement floor. Melanie cries, "Brady!" He wakes up and Melanie worries something worse will happen if he climbs back up there. Melanie hears voices from outside. Bo and Hope are nearby, so they start yelling and Bo lets them out. Brady and Melanie are relieved and tell Bo and Hope that Owen has Stephanie and Philip at the morgue. "He has a gun," Melanie warns them, so they all head to the morgue.
