Brady tries to wrap his head around the truth about Kristen, Gabi's baby goes missing, and Will wakes up.
Security guards keep John in Kristen's hotel room after she leaves. He calls Brady, whose phone is still on the ground at the square. Roman arrives. His plane just landed and he heard there was a disturbance in Kristen's room. John says he and Kristen argued. Roman thinks John made a pass at Kristen and it didn't fly. John assumes Roman would like that. He'd have ample opportunity to make a play for his wife!
Kristen walks into the DiMera mansion and finds Brady holding the photo of her paying off Sy. "Who are you?" he demands. "You played me!" Kristen blames Marlena. "I love him more than anything in the world," Kristen gripes to his mother. She accuses Marlena of photoshopping the photo. Marlena is sorry it had to come out this way. She leaves them alone and Brady gets in Kristen's face. He assumes she paid Sy to mug him so she could come to his rescue. She tells him she had an epiphany tonight but he just wants answers. She reminds him neither of them were sweetness and light in the beginning. She admits to lying and using tricks to get revenge on John and Marlena. Was he collateral damage? She denies it and says she finally knows what he means to her. He wants to know what happened to bring on her epiphany. She admits she was with John, who wanted her in bed. Brady seethes. She explains John wanted Brady to walk in on them in bed but she chose Brady. She doesn't need revenge - just him and his love. She didn't realize she was capable of love because of John and Marlena. She says she fought her love for him. He weeps and tells her she doesn't know what love is. Maybe he doesn't either because she fooled him. He crumples the photo of Sy and tries walking out on her but she wants to be with him forever. She latches on to his leg and begs him not to leave. He says she killed their love. "It's dead and all we have to do is bury it." He walks out on her. She sobs on the floor.
Adrienne and Sami visit Gabi at the hospital. She panics when she notices Arianna's missing. Meanwhile, Nick walks into Will's room with the baby. Will wakes up and Nick flashes to blackmailing him. He weeps. Across the hospital, Maxine walks into Gabi's room and hears the baby's missing. She goes to page the pediatrician. Sami follows her out. While Maggie and Sonny discuss the possibility of Nick and Will getting along, Sami learns that Maxine can't find the baby. She assumes "that crazy son-of-a-bitch" took her, and rants to Maggie about it before running off with Maxine. Back in Will's room, Nick introduces Arianna to her father. Sonny finds Nick's crying and apologetic. He hands the baby over as Maxine brings Sami in. Sami relaxes and Nick takes off. He finds Maggie in the waiting room. She can tell he's upset. In Gabi's room, she gushes to Adrienne about Sonny being a hero. Maxine returns and tells them Arianna's visiting her daddy. Gabi wishes she could have seen his face when he saw her for the first time. Back in Will's room, Sami tells Will that Sonny delivered his baby. Sonny relays the story but plays down his part in the delivery. Back in Gabi's room, Adrienne offers to babysit before leaving.
Marlena marches into Hope's office at SPD. She shows Hope the photo and they find Sy's mugshot matches the photo. Hope's astounded to learn Ciara had the photo. She has to focus on picking up Sy or they won't have a case. Marlena heard about the shooting and asks if she's alright. She acts nonchalant and says she is. She had no choice but to shoot Jensen. Hope asks if Marlena feels vindicated. She does but it comes at a price.
Maggie follows Nick to the park. He tells her Will saved his life after everything he did to him. He talks about Jensen and isn't sure he can hold on. Maggie asks who Jensen is. Nick starts rambling unhappily. He says he pretended like "it" didn't happen. How else was he supposed to survive? He sobs, "Over and over..." Maggie starts to cry and holds him in her arms. She's so sorry. She urges him to tell Gabi but he calls himself a sick freak filled with hate. Maggie knows he can get through this if Gabi's with him. She deserves the truth. They leave and later, Brady arrives, broken-hearted. John finds him.
Maxine goes to Gabi's room at the hospital. Nick walks in and she asks him to tell a nurse next time he takes the baby from the room. She leaves and Gabi looks at him happily and starts to talk about the wonderful birth and their future. Nick asks her to stop. He's so ashamed. It's way past time she knew the truth about him. Back in Will's room, Adrienne and Sami watch as Sonny and Will kiss and profess their love for one another.
Brady is approached by a drug dealer.
