A heavily bandaged and bloody Chloe lay recuperating in a hospital bed in Austria with Nancy at her side, pleading for her to tell Brady that she was alive. Chloe refused saying that with her vocal chords gone and her face slashed to bits that the girl Brady loved was gone. Pushing a little harder, Nancy told Chloe that she was afraid viper Nicole would take advantage of Brady's grief. Sensing a weakness in Chloe's defenses, Nancy picked up the phone, called Brady, and held the receiver to Chloe's ear.
Brady drowned his sorrows at Alice's bar as a plotting Nicole asked him to dance. Beer goggles firmly in place, Brady imagined Nicole was Chloe and danced with her.

Rex cut Brady off from the alcohol and Nicole promised to take him home. Once in the parking lot, Brady again mistook the widow Kiriakis for Chloe Lane and began to kiss her. Back at the mansion, Nicole took advantage of the situation and the two continued to kiss in his bed.
In Austria, Chloe pushed the phone away. She explained to Nancy that she wanted Brady to be happy. "He doesn't deserve to be saddled with a washed up, bitter, invalid who could never make him happy," she said. A tearful Nancy watched as Chloe ripped off her bandages to reveal the massive scars on her face.
