Nicole goes back to the pier and flashes back to Tony’s fall, and then meets Brady and tells him she told the truth, and she had nothing to do with Tony’s death. She tells Brady she may have killed her future with EJ. Stefano will always think that she was involved in this mess. "It’s like I’m tainted," Nicole says, no wonder EJ wouldn’t want to marry her, now. Brady admits that he thinks this is a good thing. Nicole isn’t pleased to hear that, but Brady doesn’t like the lies. He wishes her luck, if she wants to marry EJ.
At the hospital, Stefano is horrified that Tony’s dead and Philip tells him how sorry he is. "It was an accident," he tells Stefano. EJ takes Stefano to see Tony, while Hope tells Nicole to stop stalling. "I just need to be sure," Nicole says, and Hope wonders what type of deal she struck with Philip. Hope calls it obstruction of justice and when Brady arrives, he asks Nicole what she did! Nicole tells them both that Tony and Philip got into a fight. Brady knows Philip would never hurt Tony intentionally, but Hope disagrees. She asks if it was an accident or not. EJ comes out of Tony’s room and tells everyone his brother’s dead. Nicole rushes to his arms and Brady urges Nicole to tell EJ that it was an accident. Nicole wants to know if Tony said something. EJ denies this but Tony left him a message. Hope asks what he said and EJ says Tony left him a note.
In Tony’s room, Stefano says this never should have happened and nobody should outlive their children. "I would have given my life for yours," Stefano says. People have called him arrogant, making him laugh, but now he calls himself arrogant. "I toyed with you, with my own son," he says. Stefano thought he could teach Tony a lesson and then bring him back to him, when he chose. Stefano realizes he’ll never hear Tony call him ‘Father’, again. Stefano will feel guilt for this forever and he’ll vindicate Tony’s death or die trying, he promises. He weeps, as he calls Tony’s name.
Back out in the waiting room, EJ says he wants Philip arrested and charged with murder. Brady knows this isn’t his call. EJ agrees. It’s Nicole’s call! Hope tells her she’d better come clean, and be honest, or Hope will charge her with perjury.
Nearby, Phillip wants a do over. Victor knows it was an accident. Philip says it wasn’t an accident that Tony was there or that they fought. Philip will have to deal with this for the rest of his life. Victor doesn’t understand how Philip has this introspective streak, considering Kate’s his mother and he’s his father! He’s proud of his son and asks if he and Nicole are on good speaking terms. Nicole will determine whether he goes home or to jail.
Nearby, Nicole says that Tony’s death was an accident. Philip had nothing to do with it. Stefano returns from Tony’s room and tells her that this was the wrong answer. Nicole says this is the truth. Stefano calls it an accident that was planned and solved a lot of problems, for Philip, who he calls sniveling. Philip jumps at Stefano but Hope tells Stefano she’s sorry for his loss. Stefano knows what needs to be done, he says, and won’t forget Nicole’s lies. Brady asks why Nicole was there, but Philip has no idea. Victor goes to talk to the doctor, while EJ rants to Nicole that he enjoyed the fact that Father put him ahead of Tony. He will have to live with that forever. EJ looks at Philip and blames him, though Nicole says she told the truth. It was an accident. EJ says not to worry. Stefano’s lashing out, but EJ’s not angry with her for telling the truth. "It’s lies that kill," he says. Brady watches Nicole from across the room. Hope tells Victor that forensics and Dr. Jonas think the death could have been accidental and she is doubtful Philip will be prosecuted.
Brady goes to Nicole and reminds her she went to the pier to make sure Tony didn’t tell anything about Sydney. Nicole says it wasn’t like that. Hope asks if there’s something she should know. Brady denies this. Hope thinks it’s interesting timing that Nicole was there during Tony’s fall. Nicole goes to talk to Philip, who thanks her for telling the truth. Hope watches as they talk, and Philip asks what Nicole wants. She’d like him to stop blackmailing her and Brady. Philip realizes he was wrong about her. Stefano is upset to find Nicole talking to Philip. Nicole says Philip was apologizing, and this leaves Stefano disgusted with her.
Inside Tony’s room, EJ reads the note and promises Tony that somehow, he’ll find out the truth.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Philip congratulates Brady on becoming CEO of Titan. Brady is shocked to learn Philip was fired and disowned. He asks what the hell happened. Philip says he couldn’t get the blueprints back from Tony. Victor is trying on his own. Brady wants to fix this, but Philip doesn’t want his help. He’ll do all he can to get them back. Brady admits he tried to steal the blueprints back from Tony and Philip is very curious about why he’d do that.
Brady goes to Victor and demands to know what he has done to Philip. Victor says Brady’s the new CEO, but when Brady wants to discuss it, Victor refuses. Kate marches into the room, also demanding answers. She yells that he hasn’t changed and doesn’t mind hurting his own flesh and blood. "I despise you. I have had enough of you. You are out of my life," Kate rants, before leaving. Brady shares that Philip’s not in good shape, and planning to do something destructive.
Nicole finds Brady at the pier. She didn’t know who else to turn to and says everything is wrong. She starts to panic as she tells Brady that Tony confessed to knowing about the baby switch from Mia. Nicole explains that she lied and called Mia mentally ill, but he didn’t buy it. Instead, he threatened to tell EJ the truth. Nicole cries that it’s only a matter of time before she loses everything. "My life will be over," she cries. Brady comforts her with a hug, but tells her that she knew this could happen. He’d like to help, but isn’t sure how he can. He needs to know more information. Nicole says Tony just wants revenge on EJ and Stefano and thinks he can do it by dropping this bomb. Nicole can’t let it happen and suddenly has an epiphany that involves Brady. "Tony DiMera is going down!" She thinks they should steal the blueprints for the fuel project. They can break into his bedroom and steal them and use the blueprints as ransom for Tony’s silence. Brady doesn’t like this at all, and after Nicole pleads with him, he finally relents. She’ll be the one to steal the blueprints while he acts as a distraction, knowing that he couldn’t possibly get around Stefano’s security system.
Brady calls Tony and says they need to talk. Tony already had one with Philip and has exhausted all ways of saying no. Brady asks Tony to meet him at the pier in a half hour, and against his better judgment, Tony finally agrees to go. Meanwhile, Nicole listens in on the conversation from the hallway in the manse. Once Tony leaves, Nicole goes into his bedroom and starts rummaging! When the doorknob turns, Nicole panics and hides behind the bed, but it’s only Alfred, who has Tony’s dry cleaning. Instead of opening the door, he calls Tony’s name and says he has his dry cleaning. He’ll bring it by later.
Brady calls Tony’s cell phone but he doesn’t answer.
Later, Nicole winds up at the pier and explains she couldn’t find the blueprints anywhere. Tony calls her and says she and Brady make quite the team. Nicole acts innocent, but Tony says it’s a shame they couldn’t work this out peacefully. Tony tells her the truth will come out and hangs up on her. She rushes off.
At the pub, Bo tells a Salem Spectator reporter, Jake Donahue, that he’s having a hard time not taking things personally. Jake wonders what it’s like being his big brother’s boss. Hope comes up behind him and jokingly tells Jake to forget about Bo’s brother. "Ask him about his wife," she says with a big grin. The man asks how her job affects them and Hope says they try not to take their work home. Roman arrives and Jake steals him away to ask a few questions for the piece. They hope Jake didn’t suspect anything off about Bo’s visions. Hope makes light of his vision and jokingly asks Bo if he has seen her in the backseat of a car with this mysterious man. Bo is extremely uncomfortable, but Hope tells him they have to take this lightly, because it’s never going to happen! Bo admits he doesn’t know who the man is but the last vision was more intense. "It seemed like you really wanted to be with this guy," he says. Hope wants him to ignore this vision, but Bo reminds her that the last ones came to fruition. Hope asks him to trust in their love. Bo does, he says and kisses her hand. He agrees he’ll find a way to let this go. Hope calls him her life and says nothing will change. Bo tells her to call the sitter. "Impromptu date night," he says. They grin and start kissing. At a nearby table, Jake and Roman watch and Jake comments on what a great couple they are. Roman agrees completely and says nobody could ever break those two up! Hope goes off to call the sitter and Roman is happy to know she and Bo are back on track. Roman takes off and Bo grins to himself, but then has another vision. This time, the man in the vision is his brother, Roman! "Can’t be. It’s impossible," he says.
Brady arrives on the pier, about to call Philip again. Philip is there and says he turned off his phone. He needed to think. Victor needs him, says Brady. Brady assumes he took his advice and didn’t go after Tony. Philip makes a joke about it and insults Brady, who leaves. To himself, Philip says he’s not going down without a fight.
Rafe calls Sami from the pub and demands to know why the heck she disappeared like that. He hangs up and Brady asks if he’s talking to Sami and they introduce themselves. Rafe finds out Sami’s Brady’s step-brother. Rafe asks if they’re close, but Brady says it’s not the best blended family. Rafe wishes that weren’t so. Sami could use somebody to talk to. They discuss Sami’s history and Rafe admits mostly, when you’re stuck in a safe house with somebody, it’s boring. Sami was different. Brady laughs and calls Sami an ‘in your face’ type. Rafe laughs and says she’s tough. Talk turns to the DiMera’s and Rafe asks if Brady likes any of the DiMera’s.
