They discuss Will being close to death and Xander almost absconding with Holly’s hospital files. Ted looks guilty while he flashes to Xander telling him that Holly’s alive. Hope calls Xander pure evil. Hope cuts her date short and takes off. Ted comes up with an idea to prove himself to Hope.

At the Kiriakis mansion, Xander tells Sarah that she needs Dr. Rolf’s diary in order to save Will’s life and he can make it happen. Sarah asks why he cares. He tells her about bonding with Maggie and in return asks for “another roll in the hay.” Sarah smacks him and starts screaming that she doesn’t want his lips anywhere near her again. He thinks he loves her. Sarah laughs and calls him a con artist, greedy and self-absorbed. This is why he wants to get the journal for her. Maggie and Brady stroll in and Maggie thanks Xander for their talk and he asks how she’s feeling. She’s much better. He smiles and goes. Sarah’s baffled. Maggie reveals she fell off the wagon. Upstairs, Xander’s happy the journal has become so valuable. Does he sell it to the highest bidder or give it to Sarah to score points with her? Back downstairs, Sarah’s so sorry and hugs her mother. She thanks Brady for protecting and helping her mom and then delivers the terrible news about Will. Xander later answers the door to Ted.
