Nicole is shocked by Brady’s
threat to turn her in for Deimos’s murder if she doesn’t end things with Eric
and leave Salem. Nicole pleads with Brady, hoping to get through to him, but is
unable to change his mind. Left with no options, Nicole goes to Eric and says
that things are over between them. Not surprisingly, Eric doesn’t take the news
well. In shock, Eric insists to Nicole that they are meant to be together.
Nicole realizes that for his own good, she has to make a complete break and
declares that the time they spent together meant nothing to her, it was just
sex. Eric sees through Nicole and thinks she is hiding something. Seeing Eric in
such pain is too much for Nicole so she leaves, devastated by what she has done
to him. Nicole informs Brady that she has followed his demand, effectively
destroying Eric. She then crosses paths with Jennifer and urges her to look
after Eric. Nicole then packs her bags, and with Holly in her arms, she leaves

Double Wedding Begins!
As Paul and Sonny’s wedding day
approaches, the two take time to have a serious talk about Will. Sonny admits
that Will will always be in his heart, but he has chosen to marry Paul. Abigail
and Chad’s wedding plans hit a snag when Justin informs them that her annulment
was not granted. Even worse, Abigail could potentially serve prison time because
she only married Dario so that he could get a green card. Fortunately, with
quick thinking on Justin’s part, and help from Gabi, the annulment is granted.
The night before the wedding, it’s time to party. Hope, Lani and Kayla throw a
bash for Abigail, while Andre arranges a party for Sonny and Chad that is

past. Later, the stripper quietly approaches Paul and suggests that they have a
blast on his last night of freedom. Sonny walks in on what appears to be an
intimate moment between the two. As the evening winds down, Chad, Abigail, Paul
and Sonny devote personal time to working on their wedding vows. Paul, who is
