Birthday: July 27, 1971
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.
Back at the pub, Brady finds out from the hospital that Philip’s sleeping peacefully. He tells Victor that he let go of Nicole. Victor says he had a nice chat with EJ, but he was called away on some emergency. He grins at Brady, knowingly.
Mia and Will arrive at the pub and Mia is thrilled to pieces when she gets to hold Grace.
Nearby, Victor asks Brady how things went with EJ. Brady calls EJ a jerk and Victor says they can fix it so the jerk never smiles again. He asks for patience.
Brady brings Victor coffee at the hospital and Victor sees his face again and starts bashing EJ, thinking he’s behind Philip’s shooting and Brady’s beating. Victor threatens the DiMera family. Brady reminds him they’re dealing with a homicidal maniac who likes to kill and torture for sport. Victor thinks Brady’s mocking him but he’s concerned for Victor. They continue to argue. Victor tells him to let him deal with the DiMera’s. "It’ll be all over soon." He won’t rest until this suffering is over. "I’m going to hit them where their heart is," says Victor. Brady doesn’t approve, but will support him.
Mia stares at a photo of Sydney and tells herself she’ll see her baby today. Later, Nicole calls Dr. Baker to tell him, and says if Mia slips up, they’ll both take the fall. Dr. Baker finds it amusing, because Nicole doesn’t even have her baby!
Outside the pub, Nicole runs into Brady, upset with his appearance. He says it looks worse than it feels and they discuss the wedding. He says he realized she was exactly where she should be and they part. Nicole goes inside and sees Victor and his bodyguard. Victor says they’ve got catching up to do and trashes EJ and his family for beating up her buddy Brady and shooting Philip. Nicole’s face falls and Victor tells her to get used to being in the dark.
Melanie helps Brady clean up his cuts and he tells her he doesn’t’ have a concussion. Melanie says there was a huge bus crash earlier and she feels she’s gotten used to dealing with blood and the pain. "I guess I found my true calling. I’m a sadist," she jokes. Melanie becomes emotional, realizing she could have found his dead body at the pier and asks him not to go back to the church. Brady won’t. He thinks Nicole’s wedding was meant to happen. Melanie doubts he feels this way. She rants at him and tells him Max calls her passive aggressive but she says she can be nice and when she goes on and on, Brady takes her face in his hands and asks her to stop talking and listen. He asks her just to be his friend. She will, but wishes he was in love with somebody who loved him back. Brady says he’ll move on. He has to! Brady goes to the nurse’s station and is told he has to have somebody drive him home. Melanie decides to. Just then, Philip is brought into the hospital. Stephanie, still in her robe, cries and is refused entry into the ER room. Melanie grabs her and holds her while she sobs. Brady comforts her and he and Melanie ask her who did this. It was some mysterious man. She admits she called Victor and Melanie goes off to get her extra clothes and helps Stephanie change. Melanie comforts Stephanie, saying he’s got nurses and doctors and she has her and Brady.
