Brady calls Nicole to leave her a message about Mia, and before he hangs up, Arianna leaves the pub and pauses beside Brady to search her purse. Brady wonders who she is and why she’s listening to his conversation! Arianna works at the pub, and Brady asks what she overheard. Arianna denies eavesdropping and asks if he’s always this rude. Brady grins and apologizes. He’s had a rough week. She asks him to join the club and she admits she heard nothing from his phone conversation. Brady asks to start over and introduces himself, but Arianna says after he was so rude, she’ll pass. "Until next time, then," says Brady, who is a regular. He introduces himself again and she finds out his family owns the pub. Arianna worries about what he’ll say to Caroline about her. Caroline makes up her own mind, he says, and he has nothing bad to say about her. Arianna tells him he hasn’t seen the last of her and leaves. Brady grins to himself.
Maggie bakes and tells Melanie she’s hosting the 12 step meeting this evening at home. She invites Melanie to join her but Melanie’s got studying, she claims. Maggie leaves the room and Brady arrives. She’s surprised to see him and invites him to the Java Café, but he lets her know he’s there for the meeting! He shares his story and how the meetings keep him centered. Melanie brings up Stephanie and Philip’s engagement. She doesn’t think Stephanie’s right for Philip. Brady is surprised. He had no idea! Melanie asks if he’s worried about Philip, but Brady doesn’t answer and tells her to let Philip go. Melanie claims not to be jealous, but does a 180 and admits she is a little jealous. Still, Melanie doesn’t think they mesh well and doesn’t think it’ll last, because Stephanie doesn’t accept Philip for what he does.
Melanie and Brady continue to discuss her jealousy and Melanie says deep down, she means well. She looks down and realizes she lost her bracelet. It was expensive for the dumb guy who bought it for her! Maggie interrupts as Melanie runs out the door.
Maggie dishes cookies out for the meeting and talks with Brady about staying sober. She’s touched when he tells her how much he looks up to her. The doorbell rings and Maggie lets Mia in. Maggie is surprised and tells her this is a strange time to talk. Mia tells her she’s there for the meeting, but had no idea it was her house! She tells Maggie that her friend is parking the car, but he’s sober. Mia asks her to keep mum about their earlier talk. Brady comes out of another room and is surprised to see Mia! Maggie lets Will in and Mia is surprised to learn that Maggie’s Will’s aunt. Maggie reassures Mia that what happens here stays here! Will and Maggie go into the other room while Mia wonders if this can get any worse! Brady arrives and she remembers him as Nicole’s friend and asks why she’s there. Last time he saw her, she was pregnant. Brady deserves to know if she has a healthy baby and asks what she was abusing during her pregnancy. Mia stammers but says she would never do that. She has never done drugs ever, nor does she like alcohol. She explains her reason for the lie.
Victor storms into the hospital, yelling for the guard to double security. He goes to Philip, who says he feels stronger, and also wants answers. Victor says the nurse was an assassin. Philip wants them to pay. Brady arrives and asks what they’re discussing, "Which Dimera you’re going to kill first?" Philip’s out in a few days, he says, and considers himself bulletproof! Brady asks when this is all going to end. His anger causes Victor to tell him to spare him from this sanctimonious crap. Brady says he has another for him. "How about, have you ever heard that saying, ‘Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves?'" Victor retorts, "Are you on drugs again?" Philip explains that Victor’s worried about him and asks them not to argue. Victor apologizes and Brady says his loyalties lie with them, but revenge isn’t the answer. Victor invites him to tell him what the answer is, once he figures it out. Brady doesn’t like this at all, so Victor tells him to leave. Brady says he adheres to 12 steps each day and asks if Victor has ever done this. Victor makes light of Brady’s words so Brady asks Philip to rise above. He leaves.
Bo meets Brady at the pier. Brady tells him of the conversation he had with his grandfather and Philip. Brady’s not surprised that they’re going to take things into their own hands. Brady’s worried for Philip’s life. Bo will take care of this, he says, and leaves.
Back at the hospital, Victor takes a call and tells Philip everything’s going according to plan! Bo arrives and says he came to talk sense into these two. He urges them to stop their vendetta. Victor acts innocent and Philip reminds Bo he’s a marked man. Victor wonders if it were Chelsea who was marked, would he be saying the same thing. Bo refuses to answer and says, "You go out on your own and I can’t protect you." Victor never asked for it. He takes a call outside and Bo asks Philip to listen to reason. "It’s hard to reason from underneath a pillow," says Philip. He’s trying to protect himself. Bo tells Philip that when it comes to police measures, he’s the police commissioner, not his brother.
Brady finds Victor yelling at somebody on the phone. Brady says he just closed a deal. Victor wants to know how his chat went with the police commissioner.
Chloe arrives at the hospital to visit Philip, but the guard stops her and tells her she can’t go in there. Brady stops the guard from manhandling her. Brady gets Chloe on the list to get into Philip’s room and tells Chloe that his brother is sleeping, anyway. Chloe will return later. She thanks him for coming to her rescue. He claims that’s what friends are for, and looks at her gift bag. They damn the DiMera’s and Chloe reminds him Nicole’s one now. She thinks that must be difficult on him, but he denies it. Chloe knows he’s in love with Nicole, though he denies it, vehemently. "Not anymore," he says. He only feels anger towards her and has more important things to deal with. He refuses to say what, when Chloe asks. She doesn’t like the cold, hard look in his eyes and begs him not to become like Victor. Later, Chloe tries to talk sense into Brady, but he’s not listening. He does tell her he doesn’t shoot then start asking questions. Talk turns to Lucas and her marriage, and she says it’s been good and chaotic. She feels lucky. Brady is happy for them. Chloe begs him not to avenge Philip’s shooting.
Outside the pub, Brady threatens EJ. He’ll pay for what he did to him and his uncle. He’s not afraid of him but EJ thinks he should be. EJ is looking forward to proving him wrong about being a coward, he warns.
Nicole sits with Victor, who tells her she made a silly mistake and will pay for it, soon. Nicole says Stefano welcomed her into the family, and she’s now protected. She reminds him they take care of their enemies. Victor thinks she’s being used. Her wedding was a charade. They needed an alibi to provide them with one. Nicole disagrees.
Nicole goes outside and asks the guys to knock it off and Brady leaves. She tells EJ they’re taunting them and asks him not to take the bait. When he finds out Victor’s in there, he goes inside. Brady returns, angrier than ever, and Nicole asks how this happened, but Brady’s not sure she wants to know. He says the person who is holding her daughter has blood on his hands and all of her sins and Philip’s sins don’t even add up to what EJ has done.
EJ goes to Victor and apologizes for what happened to Philip. He says he hopes he makes a full recovery. Victor tells him not to worry about Philip, but to worry about his father! "We live in dangerous times." Victor leaves his chair and EJ calls Stefano. When he can’t get a hold of him, he calls a henchman and demands they find his father. Nearby, Victor calls somebody and tells them to get the job done, now.
Meanwhile, EJ stalks around the pub, and blasts his thugs, saying they should have been following him. He receives a call from Lexi, who explains Stefano’s there at the hospital and wants to see him.
Outside, Brady wishes Nicole good luck with her life and leaves, while EJ rushes Nicole to the car, explaining they need to head to the hospital.
