Sarah flashes to talking with Marlena about still being in love with Xander, despite her anger. Brady arrives, “Hey baby is this guy bothering you?” Xander knows this relationship is an act. He knows he’s made terrible mistakes but it’s all out in the open. Brady asks if he’s sure about that. Brady reminds Xander he tried to take Sarah’s embryo from her and have it implanted into Kristen’s womb. Xander tries to deny any wrongdoing but comes clean. It didn’t happen and she was there to have an abortion. “It’s not like you wanted to have a baby.” Sarah slaps him across the face and tells Xander how disgusted she is. They’re done. She and Brady go.
