Carly admits who her child is, Mickey's funeral is over, and Ari is saved by Brady.
Mickey’s funeral is over and Hope hugs Maggie while Julie comments that Alice is in the den visiting with Bill and Marie. Doug wonders where Bo is. Maggie gets the door to Melissa, who is in tears about missing the funeral. They hug and later, EJ shows up. Brady tells him he doesn't belong there. EJ wanted to give his condolences. Mickey was a good man. Hope thanks him and hopes Sydney will soon be returned to him.
Bo finds Carly at the hospital. He’s there to get a prescription filled for Alice, whose blood pressure is high. Carly tells him he’d better get a move on and later waits for the elevator as she flashes back to being stuck in the elevator with Vivian. "You can torment me all you want but I’ll kill you before you can lay a hand on my daughter." She takes the stairs.
At the pub, Rafe tells Arianna his investigation has hit a wall and he’s going back to the scene of the crime. He leaves and Troy watches Arianna from the window as he makes a call to Al, saying Arianna’s alone.
At home, Stefano holds the line for Mr. Davis and says EJ thinks he can best the man who taught him everything? He’s about to learn a lesson. EJ turns up and Stefano asks why EJ didn’t think he’d find out he’s been selling DiMera stock for bargain basement prices. EJ wasn’t doing it behind Stefano’s back. "I would like to know why you are doing it," asks Stefano. Rafe wanders into the great room with the same question. Why the sudden need for cash? EJ’s dissociating himself from anything to do with the DiMera name and reestablishing himself. He wants respect. Rafe hands the men an updated sketch of Sydney that looks nothing like her. EJ tells Stefano that when Sydney returns home, he’ll keep Stefano away from her. Later, Stefano shows Rafe the door and taunts him. He had better keep an eye on EJ. He and Sami are getting closer, daily.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Vivian is positive she knows who Carly’s daughter is, but refuses to tell Victor without more evidence. She goes to get the truth, from the horse’s mouth.
Mia and Melanie bring flowers from the funeral to the hospital while Bo arrives at Maggie’s place with Alice’s medication. He is ready to leave when Hope says he can stay if he likes. Doug and Julie leave the room and Bo apologizes for hurting Hope. Hope calls herself a fool. She thought she had time to think. She knows she comes off as self-righteous when she’s upset, but she takes half the blame. Still, she feels like there’s no going back now. Later, Hope remembers Zach’s funeral and they hug. Justin interrupts with an apology for missing the funeral. Uncomfortable, Bo leaves to give them privacy. Hope tries to stop him.
In the living room, Melissa meets Stephanie but mistakes her for Melanie. She’s embarrassed but Stephanie doesn’t mind. Maggie interrupts to take Nathan to see Aunt Sarah. Melissa takes the opportunity to apologize to Stephanie again. She should have known Stephanie wasn’t Melanie. "My mother told me Melanie was a bit of a troubled soul, and clearly that’s not you." Maggie and Nathan return and Nathan is happy to learn that his grandfather got his last arrest record expunged. Melissa overhears this. "Jail?" She’s upset, but Nathan makes light of it. "Both times were so stupid." Melissa is not happy to find Melanie was involved but Nathan points out that they’re through anyway. Melissa’s worried about her son and hugs him.
Vivian finds Carly at the hospital reading. Carly jumps and leaves the room, so Vivian sets her sights on Melanie and Mia, who have just come to the hospital with the flowers. Vivian reminds Melanie they’ve got wedding plans to make but Melanie wants a small wedding. She introduces Mia. Vivian’s intrigued by her and once she leaves, the girls agree she’s strange. Melanie sees Carly. "Speaking of strange…" Carly greets them. They turn to leave but Carly notices Melanie’s engagement ring and asks if she’s marrying Dr. Horton? Melanie says she’s out of the loop. She’s marrying Philip Kiriakis. Carly congratulates her and apologizes for her loss. The girls leave, unimpressed.
Brady arrives at the pub and offers to help open it with Arianna but she refuses him. He thinks something is bothering her but she’s fine. Once he leaves, Al shows up with a ski mask and a gun that he aims at her head. He orders her to put up her hands and then demands all the money in the cash register. Ari grabs all of the money she can as Brady returns. He quietly comes in behind Al and grabs his gun arm. They wrestle and during the scuffle, the gun falls. Ari reaches for it and Al runs off with Brady hot on his trail. Later, Brady returns. He couldn’t find the masked man and neither can identify him. Brady holds Arianna close, realizing how much she means to him. What would he do if he lost her?
Anna complains to Sydney about EJ not returning her phone calls and thinks it is time to shake things up a little. She packs up and tells Sydney spending more time with her is icing on the cake. Later, EJ snuggles with Sydney at Anna’s place and reassures Anna that the ransom drop is happening soon.
Back at Maggie’s place, the family is seated in the living room. Each member has something pleasant to say about Mickey. Julie says everyone’s a better person for having known Mickey Horton. Hope shares a story about the last time he visited with Ciara, who thought he was the kindest man in the world. Nathan talks about how Mickey used to visit them in Nashville and tell them stories about his love for Maggie. He hopes he can meet somebody he can love that much one day. Melissa talks about her parent’s unconditional love and how lucky she is. Melanie tells everyone Mickey was away a lot, so they didn’t know each other that well, but he was smart. He chose the most caring and generous woman in the world to share his life with. Melanie hopes she is like Maggie when she grows up. Maggie thanks everybody and reminisces about living on the farm when a handsome stranger came to them. The scene is shown in a flashback and Maggie thanks them all for lifting her spirits today and always. Doug raises his glass to Mickey. Later, Julie, Doug, Hope, Nathan, Stephanie and Melissa leave and Maggie stays behind to reminisce. She flashes back to marrying Mickey, spending Christmas with him and struggles not to cry as she kisses Mickey’s photo goodbye.
Later, in the kitchen, Melanie cries as she looks through a photo album.
