Eric hopes Chloe is always welcome to come out. Eric tells Nicole about a neighbor having a girl near Holly's age. Nicole informs him that Holly is not moving in.

Eric doesn't understand as Nicole told him on the phone and told Brady that they were going to be together. Nicole says she told Brady but she changed her mind. Nicole claims she was packing and realized she couldn't do that to Brady as she hurt him so much and never saw him like that before. Nicole knows Eric won't be happy knowing Brady is in so much pain and he would end up resenting her. Eric disagrees but Nicole says he would have to give up his entire family.

Nicole cries that maybe she doesn't want to be the woman who rips two brothers and an entire family apart so she's taking Holly and leaving Salem. Eric says she can't do that.
