At the police station, Jennifer interviewed Hope about her new job as commissioner. After concluding the interview, Jennifer thanked Hope for reinstating J.J. on the police force. The two women chatted, and Jennifer asked Hope, off the record, about Dr. Rolf. Hope told Jennifer that Ben had given the police information about Will.
At the farmhouse cabin, Sami visited Eric with a birthday cake. Eric complained that he was not good company, but Sami insisted that they blow out the candle on the cake and make a wish. Sami added that neither should wish for something they knew they could never have. With sad eyes, Eric looked over at a picture of Nicole on the table. After blowing out the candle, Eric asked Sami if she had been referring to Will. Sami said she needed to investigate Ben's story to find out the truth.
Sami informed Eric that Andre had agreed to track down Dr. Rolf and lure him into a meeting. While Eric retrieved silverware from the kitchen, Sami spotted the photo of Nicole on the table. Sami joked about grudgingly sharing their cake with Nicole, but Eric grumbled that Nicole had dumped him. Eric told Sami the rough details of the breakup. Furious, Sami said she wanted to give Nicole a piece of her mind. As Sami bad-mouthed Nicole, a frustrated Eric warned Sami to shut up. With a nod, Sami whispered, "You still love her."
Shaking his head, Eric commented that he and Nicole had appeared to finally be in sync and happy together, but everything had changed after she had talked to Brady. Eric wondered aloud what Brady had said to Nicole. "I wonder if I'll ever know what happened," Eric said. Sami muttered to herself that one of them should learn the truth. With a smile, Sami abruptly excused herself to leave. Suspicious, Eric asked Sami what she was "up to." Sami promised to behave.
Nicole and Brady met in the park, and she confirmed that she had broken Eric's heart, as instructed. With a sigh, Brady lamented that it was the low point of his life. Confused, Nicole asked Brady what he wanted. Brady said he wanted Nicole to hurt because she had ruined his life, and she did not deserve to be happy. Hoping for a second chance, Nicole quietly pleaded with Brady to let her leave town with Eric. Fighting back tears, Brady said he did not like to blackmail Nicole, but he was not the same man he had once been.
"Look what being a nice guy has gotten me," Brady said. Brady vowed that he would never let another woman walk all over him again. "I am giving you your freedom and your daughter. You just can't be with the person that you love, Nic. Welcome to my world," Brady said softly. Choking back tears, Nicole nodded and walked away. As Nicole walked into the square, Sami walked over to her.
The two women made chitchat, but Sami cut her off, citing no need for a "fake friend reunion." Sami growled that she had heard that Nicole had hurt both her brothers. Sami sniped that Nicole had never been good enough for Eric. Frustrated, Nicole blurted out, "As usual, you have no idea what you're talking about." When Sami pressed Nicole to explain what she meant, Nicole backed off of telling the truth. Nicole called Sami mean and vindictive, and Sami said she felt the same way about Nicole. Sami wished Nicole luck then left.
Jennifer spotted Sami walking away, and she rushed over to ask Nicole if she had just been talking to Sami. Nicole nodded yes. When Jennifer asked Nicole if she was okay, an exhausted Nicole said she had never wanted to hurt anyone. Nicole added that she felt it was best to take Holly and leave Salem. Jennifer reached out to Nicole and said she was sorry. With a nod, Nicole said, "You don't always get what you want." Nicole looked into Jennifer's eyes and asked her to check on Eric at the cabin. Fighting tears, Nicole ran off.
At the cabin, Eric picked up his box of photos of Nicole and flipped through them. Despondent, Eric threw the box of photos across the room. Still upset, Eric flipped the table then destroyed all the items in the living room. Eric looked down at his hand and saw that it was bleeding. Overwhelmed with emotion, Eric sat down on the floor, his eyes brimming with tears. When Jennifer arrived, she found the front door ajar. Jennifer walked in and saw Eric sitting on the floor among the wreckage, staring blankly into the distance.
At the DiMera mansion, Andre told Kate that Dr. Rolf had contacted him about a meeting at the Salem Inn. Andre said he planned to interrogate Dr. Rolf. Kate discouraged Andre from his plan, and she urged him to turn his information over to the police. Kate said she was worried about Andre because it would look suspicious if the police learned he had met privately with Dr. Rolf. Reluctantly, Andre agreed, but he countered that if the police screwed up the lead, it would be Kate's fault.
Andre went to the police station and told Hope about his scheduled meeting with Dr. Rolf. When Andre noted that he was reluctant to hand the matter over to the police, Hope convinced Andre that it was the best course of action. Hope said she believed Dr. Rolf would talk to her, based on their history. With a nod, Andre handed Hope an envelope to use for the meeting. With envelope in hand, Hope went over to the Salem Inn and knocked on Dr. Rolf's door. Hope slid the envelope under the door. Dr. Rolf opened the door and was surprised to see Hope standing in the hallway.
At the DiMera mansion, Kate waited anxiously for news about the meeting with Dr. Rolf. Sami arrived, and the two shared a hug. Sami demanded to know why no one had told her about Ben's announcement about Will, but Kate explained that they had not wanted to upset Sami until they had more evidence. Nodding, Sami said that she still had a vivid memory of seeing her son lying in the morgue. Kate and Sami talked about Lucas, and both women were worried that they would lose him. Sami promised to make another attempt to get through to him.
Talk turned to Andre, and Kate updated Sami on the latest. Sami was frustrated that no one had called her with the new information, but Kate assured Sami that Andre had only told her about the meeting with Dr. Rolf just before Sami had arrived. Andre returned from the police station. With fire in her eyes, Sami asked about Dr. Rolf.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Bonnie and Justin argued in the foyer about her impending nuptials to Victor. At Statesville, a desperate Adrienne used Hattie's calling card to reach out to Justin and warn him about Bonnie. As Justin's cell phone rang, a frustrated Bonnie urged Justin to answer the call. Justin took the phone out of his pocket, but his attention was diverted to Maggie as she struggled to carry her suitcase down the staircase. Justin placed his phone on the table and rushed to assist Maggie.
As Bonnie rolled her eyes, she saw Statesville on the caller ID. Bonnie deftly snatched the phone off of the table and slipped into the living room to take the call. Adrienne confronted Bonnie on the phone. As Bonnie cackled that Adrienne was out of luck, Adrienne explained that her brother Steve was suspicious of Bonnie and had talked to Hattie. Adrienne noted that it was only a matter of time until Bonnie was discovered. With a furrowed brow, Bonnie reasoned aloud that if Steve knew the truth, he would be at the mansion. Adrienne pleaded with Bonnie to confess her scheme to Justin, but Bonnie hung up the phone.
Justin walked into the living room and demanded to know why Bonnie had his phone. With a shrug, Bonnie said someone from the prison had called. Bonnie assured Justin that she had taken care of the unwanted caller. With a devilish grin, Bonnie warned Justin to leave unless he wanted to act as a witness for her wedding to Victor. Justin groaned. Bonnie urged Justin to move on with his life.
While Bonnie went upstairs to dress for the ceremony, Victor met with a man in the living room. After instructing the man to do what they had discussed, Bonnie returned dressed in the white gown she had originally purchased to wear at Sonny's wedding. Victor introduced the man to Maggie as a justice of the peace. With a scowl, Victor pointed at the brooch Bonnie was wearing and noted that it was Maggie's. Bonnie corrected Victor and said that it had been a brooch from Mickey that Maggie had left behind. Grinning, Bonnie fired the justice of the peace.
Victor beamed. With a smirk, Victor asked Bonnie if she had decided to cancel the wedding. Bonnie announced that she had hired her own officiant. Sheila walked into the room, and Bonnie explained that Sheila had been ordained online. Brady walked in and blinked at the sight before him. After a brief explanation by Victor that he had divorced Maggie and was marrying Bonnie, he asked Brady if he would be the witness. Confused, Brady shrugged and joined the party.
Sheila stumbled through the ceremony quickly then asked if there were any objections to the marriage. With a raised eyebrow, Brady mumbled, "I feel compelled to say something." Bonnie shut Brady down. As Sheila resumed the ceremony, Maggie marched in and objected to the wedding.
