Nicole says this was Sarah’s secret to tell but Eric says Nicole was thinking about herself. In the 20 years he’s known her, she hasn’t changed. He reminds her she dumped him for 5 million dollars when she married Lucas that one time. Nicole says sitting in judgment is God’s job and that’s how she forgave him after he killed Daniel. Her point, “Who is to say you can’t forgive me?” Nicole apologizes. She says if there is no hope for them, she’ll find another place to live. He tells her to stay or move. He’s not sure how long he’ll be. Nic cries.

Princess Gina strolls into the interrogation room at SPD. Rafe heard she opened Eve’s case. He asks what her first move is. She has none which confuses Rafe. “Hope” doesn’t owe Rafe any explanations and takes off, making Rafe wonder, “What the hell is wrong with her?” Later, Abby and Chad arrive. They tell “Hope” about the specialist they hired to look at the CCTV footage. “Hope” says she can’t let civilians look at it. Rafe appears and offers to use him as a consultant. “Hope” worries but agrees to it. Soon, Buck arrives, (played by Clayton Ferris). Introductions are made and “Hope” walks off to frantically call Stefano to beg for a plane out of the country as Rafe walks up. “Did you just say you’re leaving the country?” Gina thinks fast. She’ll spend Christmas in Hong Kong with Shawn and Belle since they can’t make it. Rafe’s surprised she’ll miss the Horton Christmas. Chad and Abby rush out of the interrogation room. Buck is certain the footage was tampered with. They all go into the interrogation room. The woman was superimposed with another person but he can uncover who the real culprit is. “Hope” looks sick. She fakes a coughing fit and excuses herself, then calls Stefano again from elsewhere. He’s not there. She panics. Chad gets a text that the plane landed in Salem so he goes to find out what happened in Rome. Rafe goes to get Hope and finds her racing out of the SPD. He stops her. Inside the interrogation room, Buck finds out the real culprit. “Oh. My. God,” Abigail says, shocked.

They cut it together and stuff their faces, finding it delicious. They chat about what they would have done during their wedding reception and get romantic as they dance.
Xander closes himself in his office at Titan and throws things off his desk in despair. Ciara arrives with paperwork. He says to leave it. She heard about Mickey and is sorry. He asks her to overnight something to Sarah in Boston. She’ll do that. He takes out his lockbox and says it’s a bracelet – his mother’s. It’s supposed to ward off evil and he’s feeling desperate. Ciara’s nervous when he can’t get his key into the lock. His face grows dark and he asks if she knows anything about it.
