"It's gonna get better," she promises. Hailey hugs Kristen and they both cry. Eric eavesdrops. The girl leaves and Eric talks about her affinity for kids.

Again." Brady asks her to trust that his eyes are wide open.

He presents EJ and Sami's passports and documentation on which shows EJ impounded the DiMera jet. When Justin brings up the children, Trask reminds the judge brings up EJ and Sami going on the run last year.
