At the hospital, Sonny jokingly asks if Gabi has frankincense. It’ll remove the hex from Will because the necklace doesn’t seem to be working. Will’s taking it seriously.

He protests and Chloe wonders how he really feels. She takes off and returns with Holly. Stefan decides to have a picnic with her since hers was canceled today. He’ll make Brussels sprouts with chocolate. They laugh. Later, they dine on sandwiches on the floor on a blanket.
Eric meets Brady at the park about the blackmail. Eric chooses not to be blackmailed. Rex already knows Sarah kissed him because she told him. Brady seems disappointed but assumes this still means Eric’s in love with her. Talk turns to Chloe moving in “with the latest DiMera sociopath,” and Eric says this is Chloe’s call. Brady will place the blame on his brother if something happens to Holly. Eric thinks his brother is being ridiculous. He should rethink his tactics with Chloe if he really wants to help her.

He picks her up and makes love to her on the sofa. Afterward, Sarah says she’s off to tell her mama their news.
Sarah visits Maggie and Victor at the Kiriakis mansion. She tells them her engagement news. “How lovely,” Victor says, “Did Xander knock you up that night?” Sarah can’t believe her mama told him. He says not to worry. He burned the sheets. Sarah says she’s marrying Rex and Victor’s disgusted since he cheated on her twice. Later, Victor’s gone and Maggie worries this marriage is a bad idea. She asks if Rex knows he’s “the winner by default.” Sarah claims she’s over Eric now but Mags isn’t buying it. “You’re getting married for all the wrong reasons.” Sarah tries to disagree with that and in the end, Maggie just wants her happiness. She cries.
Rex arrives in Will’s hospital room. Roman and Kate listen as Rex says Will wasn’t poisoned. His white blood cell count is elevated so they need to run more tests and Will needs rest.
