Lucas and Sami are sitting in a booth, across from each other. Lucas is reading the newspaper while Sami reads The Intruder. Sami looks a model on the page of 2005 predictions and imagines seeing Brandons picture there instead. Sami looks shocked and Lucas notices Samis expression. Sami slams the tabloid down on the table and clears her throat. Lucas asks Sami if something is wrong in the paper. Sami puts the paper aside and dismisses Lucas concerns. Lucas asks Sami again if she is okay. Sami explains that she is annoyed that city hall closed early today. Lucas reminds Sami that city hall closed early because it is Christmas Eve. Sami complains that since other people have to work on Christmas, so should the employees of city hall. Lucas tells Sami to relax for they still can file her annulment papers next week. Sami decides that Lucas is right and feels relieved that Brandon cant ruin their Christmas or their wedding since hes already left town.
Outside of Brady Pub & Outside of Johns penthouse:

Hope runs her fingers over Zacks stocking that is hanging from the mantel. Hope hangs Bos stocking next. A mans voice says Ho Ho Ho and Hope hopes that it is Bo. Hope throws open the door and politely smiles when she sees that it isnt him but Shawn Sr. dressed as Santa Claus.

Jack stands up as he insists that Bo and Billie are looking for him and Cassie. Tony corrects Jack by saying that Bo and Billie were looking for someone else. Jack takes that to mean that there are other survivors being held at the castle. Tony tells Jack to face the fact that they are dead and that there is no one coming to help them. Jack asks where Bo and Billie are now. Tony suggests that Bo and Billie decided to leave when they couldnt find what they were looking for.

Tony is aware that Bo and Billie will surely alert the police but confidently smiles as he tells Jack that the police are on the DiMera payroll. Jack skulks back toward the bed and hangs his head. Tony pretends to be moved to tears as he talks about Jennifer being alone in Salem with two children on Christmas.

On the TV screen, Jack is able to see Jennifer spending time with Patrick. Tony pretends to be surprised that Patrick is moving in on Jennifer.

Abby comes downstairs on her way out the door, dressed in a halter top, but Jennifer stops her to ask where she is going. Abby simply says that she is going out. Jennifer wants to know where Abby is going. Abby says she is going to the mall. Jennifer says that the only place Abby is going is to her room to change because she is still grounded. Abby declares that this will be the worst Christmas ever and storms upstairs. Jennifer sighs and grimaces as she hears Abby slam her bedroom door. Jennifer says that its good that they at least agree on something.

Shawn Sr. says he will be leaving and Hope hugs him goodbye.

Bo says he can barely hear Hope but that they have a bad connection. Hope tells Bo that they all miss him so much. Bo says he misses them too. Billie cries silently as she listens to Bo vow to Hope not to miss Christmas or their anniversary. Hope is touched that Bo remembered their anniversary. Bo says he could never forget the happiest day of his life. Hope asks about Billie. Bo turns to look at Billie who has wiped her tears and pretends to be preoccupied with looking through the files.

Kate cautions John that he is too weak to be on his feet right now and that is why she is here to help him get better. Kate picks up Johns canes. Kate asks if the workmen came by to install the wheelchair lift on the back stairway as she walks toward him. John yells that he took care of it as he snatches the canes out of Kates hands. John throws them on the floor in desperation. He tells Kate to spend the holidays with his family instead of him. Kate says that being here is better than sitting in the hotel suite and missing Roman just like John is missing Marlena. Kate adds that this is the worst time for them to be alone, especially since their kids are busy with their own lives and relationships. Kate says she cant wait until Belle and Philip are happily married. Kate then changes the subject to Lucas and Sami, warning that if they tie the knot, itll be the biggest mistake of their lives.
Sami intertwines her hand in Lucas hand as she tells him that she cant wait for their wedding day. Sami adds that she wants it to be big, beautiful, and before Belle and Philips wedding day. Lucas reminds Sami that this is not a competition and says that they should have one big wedding since theyre all family. Sami says that she has been waiting for this day her whole life, wanting it to be perfect so it doesnt end up like her past attempts at walking down the aisle. Lucas promises that the day will be perfect. Sami smiles as she says that it could only be perfect because she is marrying Lucas. Lucas returns to reading the newspaper.

Lucas says he doesnt want anything because hes now lost his appetite. The waitress leaves. Sami starts to explain but Lucas accuses Sami of not being able to stop thinking about Brandon. Eugenia hides around the corner and listens in on Sami and Lucas conversation. She senses that there is some trouble in paradise. Sami insists that her comment was only a slip but Lucas doesnt believe her. Sami blames it on being upset over not being able to get the annulment papers filed and vows to get the papers filed as soon as the city clerks office opens. Sami vows to get Brandon out of her head and her life forever. Eugenia, thinking, says that theyll have to see about that. Lucas insists that they have a problem if Sami is thinking about Brandon at all. Sami wants to know what Lucas is trying to say. Lucas suggests that they postpone the wedding since Sami cant seem to sort out her feelings for Brandon.
Kate returns with a package and tells John that he got a Christmas present. John is working on exercising his shoulder as he asks Kate whom the present is from. Kate is shocked when she reads that the label says the present is from Marlena. Kate hands John the box.
Hope has come over to help wrap presents. Jennifer thanks Hope for helping her get all the wrapping done. Hope says she is happy to help and has nothing else to do.

He is awoken again by an older gentleman in a business suit and trim white beard who taps Bo with his cane. The man asks Bo if the seat next to him is taken Bo puts his bag on the floor and allows the man to sit down next to him. The man tells Bo that he must make his appointed rounds or there will be many disappointed young children. Bo tells the man about how he is trying to get home to his wife and kids but it seems impossible. The man warns Bo not to be so sure about that because it is Christmas Eve, a time when miracles have been known to happen. Bo smiles as he sees the mans left eye twinkle.
Hope and Jennifer continue to wrap presents. Jennifer cant believe that Bo is spending Christmas and their anniversary with Billie. Hope explains that Bo and Billie are stuck at the airport and cant get a flight out. Jennifer offers her condolences. Hope says that Bo is trying but doesnt have faith that hell make it. Jennifer offers her condolences again. Hope laments that this isnt right because Bo should be here, not only for her and Zack but also for Shawn. Hope worries that Shawn is out of control and Bo isnt here when Shawn needs his father the most. Jennifer smiles politely but hangs her head. Hope suddenly realizes that she is complaining about Bo when Jennifer is facing the holidays without Jack and apologizes as she hugs Jennifer. Jennifer assures Hope that she has every right to complain. Hope adds that at least she knows that Bo is coming home eventually. Jennifer says that it is hard to believe that Jack wont ever be coming home and this is something that shell have to learn to deal with. Hope hugs Jennifer.
