It's Arianna's christening and someone shocking crashes the party...
At St. Luke's, EJ asks Abigail to stay quiet about Nick until after the christening. Hope and ask where Gabi went. They tell her she stepped out. Hope asks if Abby knows what happened to Nick. Abby has no idea and takes Arianna into the vestibule where Will and Sonny are worrying. She shares her concerns that something may have happened to Nick. Back inside, Hope stops EJ who doesn't think the church is an appropriate place to grill Gabi. Hope finds it odd he's so protective of Gabriella.
Rafe and Lucas discuss the christening at Club TBD. Rafe learns Jordan can't make it due to work. Rafe asks if Lucas is bringing Sheryl. Lucas grins. No, he barely knows her and she works for the company. He looks guilty about the reason for Sheryl's move.
A frantic Gabi and Kate meet Sami at the Horton Square. Gabi tells Sami Julie is suspicious about the text messages from "Nick." They run to the park and try to soothe Gabi's fears. She receives a text that Hope's at the church asking questions about Nick and has a hairy canary. Sami coaches her to breathe and they race back to the church.
At the Brady's Pub, Caroline excitedly tells Roman she emptied the grease traps and cleaned the fryers. It's the first time since Nick left. She notices his suit and asks who died. He reminds her it's Arianna's christening. She's upset that she forgot but Roman reminds her there's still time to get ready. She runs upstairs.
Eric picks Marlena up at the hospital. She hopes he's up for the christening and guesses his ordeal with Nicole was a bonding experience. He doesn't want to discuss it. She hopes he's up to being at the church.
At the Horton house, Jennifer and JJ are dressed for the big event. He's down in the mouth about the judge's decision which is on the horizon and asks that she let him handle Theresa if she is a guest at the christening.
Kate and Sami arrive at the church. They gush about how perfect Abigail is as Godmother. Abby looks ashamed. Julie turns up. Doug's stuck in Miami. In another room, sexy guitar music plays as Gabi tells him the one mistake she'll never regret is the night they made Arianna. Will's the best dad she could have and Gabi's best friend. They hug. Elsewhere, Hope continues to grill EJ but he reminds her Gabi helped find his son's cancer and that's when he started caring about her. Sami and Kate enter the room and hope they can keep Gabi calm. Jenn arrives. She says Maggie and Brady are bowing out because they're ill and don't want to expose the baby. Rafe finds Sami and Kate and Sami asks about Jordan, his bossy coach. It's awkward. Rafe says they're friends. He takes a seat and Kate whispers to Sami, "Sometimes I really like you. It's so disorienting." In the vestibule, Lucas tells Sonny he hopes someday soon he and Will will have their own ceremony. Caroline arrives and hugs Sonny. Eric turns up and Caroline's been so worried. He assures her he's fine. When he goes into the church, Julie talks loudly to Hope. "So brave of him to show up. Last time was on a screen seven feet tall." Hope shushes her. Sami hugs Eric. Lucas notices Abby. He tells her she has the DiMera scowl on her face. She frets. He thinks she's thinking of Chad and tells her she'll find someone who deserves her. Meanwhile, Rafe tells Gabi he spoke to their mother and they'll send photos after the ceremony. Everyone heads in and Father Matt begins the ceremony. Sonny and Abby talk about what they'll do to help Arianna in her path. Father Matt baptizes the baby and Gabi flashes to Nick going underwater. Once the ceremony's over, Will invites everyone to the DiMera mansion for a party. Father Matt talks to Eric about how it feels to be back there. He says it's like home. They agree to meet later to talk. In the vestibule, Kate and Sami urge EJ to shut Abigail up once again. He flashes to sex with Abby and goes, "Not a good idea." They sigh, exasperated so he tells them he'll give it a try. They head inside. Jenn and Lucas agree to dinner next week. Once Jenn goes, EJ takes Abby aside. Marlena leaves and the party breaks up. Julie and Hope look for Abby but she's in a private room where EJ tries to get her to stay quiet. She questions his motives for having sex with her and he turns the tables and asks why she "slept" with him. He teases her and she stammers and runs out. EJ follows and as Abby's about to talk to Hope, someone enters the church. Everyone's jaw drops as Nick closes the doors behind him. "Sorry. Am I interrupting?"
