Eve has a drink with Daniel, John's surgery doesn't go well, and Eve and Abigail have it out in a public way.
At Victor's, Theresa hits John with a poker and he falls to the floor unconscious. She panics and wipes her prints from the poker then places it in Brady's unconscious hand. He wakes up and walks, then passes out so she moves the poker and starts yelling, "John, no!" She deletes the recording as Henderson rushes in. She hands him John's phone and he calls the police. Abe arrives with the EMS and Theresa lies about what happened. She claims she was out of the room but saw Brady hit John. Brady comes to and they drag him out while John's wheeled into an ambulance.
Eric and Sami argue at the park about her revenge plot. Sami calls Abigail names and admits she enjoyed telling Jennifer the truth. She did it out of revenge for the both of them. She confesses she suspects EJ knew Kristen drugged and raped him before Brady's wedding. Eric is appalled she didn't mention it before and calls her selfish. She could have helped him clear his name! She whimpers that she loved EJ and had two kids with him. She's sorry. Eric asks her to take care of her kids before she plans her next attack. Chin out, she yells that she always does. Eric wants her to be a good example for them. The last thing they need to know is that she married their father for revenge. Sami hyperventilates. She can't turn the other cheek. Eric tells her pushing the pain down isn't going to work. She snipes that she'll wallow in pain later. She stomps off.
At Jenn's, she and JJ fill Abigail in on what Eve wants from the lawsuit. Abigail wants Eve to back off or she'll bash her face in. Her mother gasps. Abby apologizes. She goes off to confess to people about EJ before Sami. JJ wants to tell Sami off but Jenn stops him. Eric arrives and JJ leaves. Eric says he knows Sami was there earlier and why. They dish on the situation. Eric thinks she should call Daniel for support but she can't ruin his evening.
Daniel learns Nancy's doing well while he's on a call with Parker at the Horton square. Eve eavesdrops and then approaches as he ends the call. They discuss their children and Eve's new "killer" shoes which are killing her in more ways than one. She asks to sit and calls him her only friend in town. She babbles about her feet. He compliments her on being so different from Theresa. They get drinks and she asks what it's like to be on call as a doctor. He tells her compartmentalizes. He gets a page and runs off. Eve groans that Theresa's right. Salem's 'no fun' city. Abigail arrives and makes a scene. She yells at Eve for being a money grubber. Eve thinks everyone will still benefit even with the lawsuit. Abby keeps yelling and Eve calls her arrogant. She thinks Jack would be disgusted at how she turned out. Abby hauls off and slaps her. Eve threatens to have her brought up on charges. JJ arrives and breaks them up. Abby can't believe her behavior and apologizes before running off. JJ assumes Eve gave as good as she got just now and asks her to dial it back.
At TBD, Tad comments on a wooden box Ben made himself for Abigail. He hopes she likes it. Sami arrives and Tad covers for Ben while Sami brings him to a table and apologizes for what happened at the wedding. She doesn't want him to get hurt and assumes Abby got to him, just like she got to EJ. Sami drums up some tears and tells him Abby slept with EJ. She really victimizes herself and tells Ben this happened when he and Abby were getting close. Ben's stunned and Sami says she has proof but it's graphic. She leaves and in walks Abigail. Ben's pissed.
Brady, John, Abe, and Theresa arrive at the hospital. Theresa tells Abe this was self-defense but Abe is confused since she said she wasn't even in the room. Brady wakes up and asks what happened to his father. After hearing John's in surgery, Brady runs out to get an update. In the OR, Daniel learns John's got intracranial hemorrhaging. They begin surgery and John flatlines. Outside, a doctor tells Brady he'll find out how John's doing. Brady goes to Henderson for answers but Henderson only heard Theresa screaming. Theresa puts on an act. She says John came over, demanding to talk to him. She left the room and when she came back, Brady had hit John over the head with a poker. Brady's eyes widen. Daniel approaches and says John's not okay.
