At Sami’s place, Rafe is on the phone with Sami’s security detail, telling them to keep an eye on the back entrance of the building, as Nicole managed to walk out of Stefano’s house with Sydney, so she clearly isn’t stupid. EJ heads in as Rafe hangs up, surprised that he is still here, since it took so long to get Sydney down. Rafe wonders what Sami is doing. EJ replies that she is reading the twins a story in order to get them to sleep. He then asks pointedly if it’s wise for Rafe to be here right now, since Sami wants them to spend some time apart. Rafe replies that he actually came by to talk to EJ, and he wanted to do so without Sami around. EJ asks what is going on, and Rafe explains that they need to talk about Anna.

At the DiMera mansion, Kate chides Stefano for forgetting to take his pills. Stefano curses, claiming that he wouldn’t need them if he knew Nicole was still in prison. Kate sighs, saying that she realizes that Nicole is the root of all evil, but she doesn’t control his blood sugar. She then assures Stefano that if Nicole has half a brain, she’ll stay away from Stefano and his family. Stefano pulls Kate into his arms and kisses her, telling her that he feels better already.

At a café in Santo Domingo, Brady warns Nicole to zip it. He then begs Arianna not to do this, as he came here to marry her, not to talk about Nicole. Arianna cries that Nicole is free, and that that changes everything, but Brady claims that will only happen if she lets it. He adds that the ball is in Arianna’s court, and he needs to know if she wants to marry him or not. Arianna replies that she does love him and want to marry him. Nicole smirks that Arianna doesn’t have a prayer. Brady whirls around, telling Nicole that she is his friend, and he knows what she has been through, but if she butts in one more time, he’s going to knock her down. Nicole grumbles and walks over to the bar. Arianna reminds Brady of the first time he asked her to marry him and how she refused, claiming that she was afraid to be happy. Brady remembers, of course. Arianna claims that that was true, but that there was another reason she refused. She then explains that she thought that because Nicole was in prison, she and Brady could start a life together and put down roots. She thought by the time Nicole was released, those roots would be strong enough for them to handle Nicole. Brady claims that Nicole isn’t a threat, but Arianna reminds him that she showed up here the second she got out of prison, and Arianna caught her with her tongue down Brady’s throat. Brady claims she was just saying goodbye, but Arianna think it looks as if she was really saying hello. She asks Brady to look at what Nicole has done to them n their wedding day, and asks him what he thinks she is going to do to the rest of their lives. Brady doesn’t reply. Arianna snaps that if he can’t answer that, then she doesn’t want to marry him today after all.

Stefano lets Will into the mansion, and Kate crows over her favorite grandson. Will remarks that he forgot to tell her that he is grounded, and the only reason he is allowed out of the house is because he came to bring Kate’s gift back to her. Kate insists that he keep it, but Will thinks they all know it was a bribe--including his mom and EJ. Stefano doesn’t think it’s right that Will was punished for allowing him to spend time with his grandchild. Will snaps that what isn’t right is that the two of them played him. Kate swears that she never played Will, and that she was telling the truth when she said she wanted to spend time with her grandson. Will sighs, asking Stefano and Kate if they’ve ever considered that the way they live their lives has something to do with why his mother doesn’t want them around. He adds that whenever someone has it in for the two of them, a member of their family ends up getting flipped on the table like the ante in a poker game. Will vows that he won’t be a poker chip for them or anyone else.

EJ wonders why Rafe wants to question him privately. Rafe replies that it was widely knows that Anna didn’t approve of her husband’s dealings with the DiMeras because of their lawlessness. EJ agrees with that. Rafe wonders why Anna kidnapped a DiMera baby, and then ripped her clothes up and made everyone think she was dead, claiming that that makes no sense to him. EJ doesn’t think Rafe understands how Tony’s death really pushed Anna over the edge. Rafe guesses that might have happened. EJ, for his part, wonders how Anna came up with all of this on her own. Rafe guesses EJ hasn’t heard the latest--Anna wasn’t working on her own. EJ stares.

Brady assures Arianna that getting off drugs, coming to Salem, and meeting her was one of the best things that has ever happened to him, and that he has never been happier than he is right now. Arianna claims that she knows exactly how he feels, and that she can’t even put into words what the past few months with him have meant to her. Brady thinks that is great, but wonders how she can stand here and talk about the possibility of them not getting married if she really feels that way. Arianna claims that she does want to be married to him, but she doesn’t want to be married to him and to Nicole. Brady vows that it would never be like that, as he can be Arianna’s husband and Nicole’s friend at the same time. Arianna claims that he can’t, and asks Brady to imagine a candlelit dinner. Nicole will call and interrupt, and she’ll be left to clean up and blow out the candles because Brady will be gone helping Nicole. Brady sighs. Arianna grumbles to herself, wondering how Nicole even got pardoned. Brady claims he doesn’t care, and again tries to assure Arianna that Nicole can only interfere with their lives if she allows her to. Arianna demands to know what Brady will do if Nicole calls him on the phone sometime, wanting him to talk her off a ledge. Brady vows that he will hang up the phone and come back to that candlelight dinner she was talking about. He asks Arianna if she’ll forgive Nicole for calling if he promises to do that. Arianna softens, saying she’ll think about it. Brady suggests that they get married today, then. Arianna smiles and agrees. Over at the bar, Nicole tries to hold back tears.

At the Java Café, Mia and Chad make small talk about how busy the place was all day. Mia then tells Chad that she broke things off with Will. Chad is surprised, as he thought she wanted to wait until things got more settled with his family. Mia claims that that was stupid of her. Chad wonders how Will handled the breakup. Mia admits that he was a wreck, but she’s sure Will can get over her. She adds that he has no choice, as Chad is the only one she wants. Chad moves in and the two kiss. Just then, Gabi walks over and orders a coffee. She scoffs, asking if the two can stop pawing one another long enough to make it, or if she should just come back there and make it herself.

Will slams chess pieces around as Kate tries to assure him that she would never bribe him. She reminds him that she gives him gifts all the time just because she loves him. Will reminds her angrily that she never came to visit while Sydney was missing. Kate reminds him that his mother wouldn’t allow it. Will scoffs, saying that if Kate thought his mom hated her before, she ought to try her now. Kate demands to know what Sami said. Will think she can guess, and claims it’s nothing compared to what EJ said. Will thinks it’s even worse because of EJ’s accent, saying that no one ever called him a bloody bastard before. Stefano snaps that EJ has no right to treat Will that way and he gives Will his word that he will never do it again.

EJ thinks that theory is very interesting. Rafe is sure that Anna must have had a cohort, as she came to see Sami, and went to the police station, so someone must have been watching Sydney while she was out. EJ reminds Rafe that Anna kidnapped Sydney, so childcare was probably the last thing on her mind. He thinks Anna probably ran errands while Sydney was sleeping. Rafe disagrees, thinking it would have been too risky to leave a baby alone like that, as she may have cried and attracted attention. Rafe is sure Anna had some flunkey working for her. EJ makes a face as Rafe remarks that it’s too bad that Sydney isn’t little bit older, as then she could have told them what happened

Brady tells Arianna that life is messy, and people are complicated. He thinks she has a choice, and that she can throw everything away, or fight for what she wants. Arianna thinks he is right. Brady grins, joking that he loves being right. Arianna and Brady talk about finding the justice of the peace and getting the marriage license. Brady is just glad that their first fight is out of the way, as this means that the rest of the day will be perfect. The two then hurry off. Nicole rolls her eyes and instructs the bartender to keep the drinks coming. Just then, the justice of the peace heads in, asking if Nicole has seen the couple he was supposed to marry. Nicole explains that they just left. The man frets, explaining that he got delayed. Nicole flirtatiously asks him if he remembers her. He says he does of course, as no one could ever forget her. Nicole thinks that if he suddenly has some time on his hands, then perhaps he could find a way to fill her time. Nicole bats her eyelashes.

Kate asks Stefano what he plans on doing to EJ. Stefano claims that he just wants to talk to EJ. Kate vows to take care of that idiot herself, as no one talks to her grandson that way. Stefano reminds her that he is EJ’s father. He promises Will that he will make sure that EJ understands that he isn’t his father, and that he can’t tell him what to do. Will wonders how Stefano is going to make that clear when EJ isn’t even speaking to him. Stefano smiles, telling Will to leave that part to him.

EJ nods, saying that he likes where Rafe is going with this. Rafe admits that one thing doesn’t work, and that is the fact that Anna’s accomplice was her flunkey. Rafe then tells EJ that Anna said something odd to him when he first met her--she told him that it wasn’t her idea, and that someone put her up to it. Rafe thinks that she might have been talking about the kidnapping, and how someone else was pulling the strings. EJ isn’t so sure, reminding Rafe that Anna was at Sami’s apartment because of Roman, and had kidnapped Sami’s child and Roman’s grandchild. Rafe nods, saying that Anna’s statement simply could have regarded Roman forcing her to come see Sami. EJ thinks that’s it. Rafe sighs, saying that he still can’t believe Anna was here in Sami’s apartment consoling her when she knew she had taken Sydney. EJ then tells Rafe that Anna called him a few times while Sydney was gone. He suggests Rafe check the phone records to find out where she called from, but Rafe says they already have. He tells EJ not to worry, assuring him that they will get Anna--and the person she was working with. EJ gulps.

Nicole flirts, telling Gordon that she has never met a justice of the peace before. He admits that the work is stressful, but fulfilling. Nicole then asks what Gordon likes to do to let off steam. He replies that he likes to go bird watching. Nicole asks him if he knows what she likes to do to blow off steam. Just then, Faye walks in, telling Gordon to say no if he has a brain in his head. Nicole gasps. Faye asks her what the hell she thinks she is doing. Nicole, in turn, demands to know what her mother is doing here. Faye reminds Nicole that she wanted money, but Nicole hisses that she was supposed to wire it to her. Faye claims that she was worried, and that she had a right to be. She hands Nicole an envelope, telling Nicole that this is all, and would have been less if her friend Marge hadn’t loaned her some money. Nicole thinks there would have been more money if Faye hadn’t bough a plane ticket. Faye reminds Nicole that the last time she saw her, she was in a prison. Gordon, confused, asks if Nicole was really in jail. Nicole snaps that she got a pardon. Faye wails that she tried to run off to Canada with Stefano DiMera’s grandchild. Gordon wonders who he is. Faye replies that he’s like the godfather, but with nine lives. She think Nicole would be safer in prison after what happened with Sydney. Gordon asks who he is. Nicole snaps at him to shut up. She then assures Faye that she is at the bottom of Stefano’s list of enemies. Faye, shocked, asks Nicole if she is saying that she knows who grabbed that baby. Nicole shrugs, saying that no one said that. Faye guesses that whoever kidnapped Sydney is the same person that sprung her from jail. Nicole smirks.

Kate, now alone with Will, says that she thinks something more is going on than him just being upset with EJ. She pleads with Will to talk to her, and he asks her if she remembers that girl Mia. Kate does, and also remembers that Will was serious about her. Will nods, admitting that he found out Mia was two-timing him. Kate frowns, asking for Mia’s last name. Will shakes his head, saying that he doesn’t want Kate hatching any plans, and besides, he took care of it by dumping Mia. Kate is thrilled to hear it. Will thinks he was clueless, but Kate disagrees, telling Will that he is loyal and true, and that one day, he’ll find just the right person. Will isn’t so sure, as he doesn’t have much faith when it comes to true love.

Faye reminds Nicole that she caught a real break getting out of jail the way she did, and she thinks this is her chance for a fresh start. She sighs, saying that she hates to see Nicole waste it by drinking in this bar and putting the moves on a loser. Gordon huffs that he has a couple to marry. Nicole begs him to wait, but Gordon hurries off. Nicole sighs, thanking her mother for ruining everything. She explains that the happy couple Gordon is going to marry is Brady and Arianna, and now she won’t be able to stop him. Fay, upset, asks Nicole if she came here to wreck Brady’s wedding. Nicole claims that she didn’t even know Brady was getting married, and that she just came to see him and to talk to him. Faye sadly tells Nicole that she doesn’t realize what she is doing. Nicole claims she does, and that Brady is the one. She thinks that if she hadn’t lost him, then she would be happy right now. Just then, Brady and Arianna head into the café. Nicole congratulates them, noting that that was the quickest wedding in history. Brady introduces Arianna to Faye, calling her his fiancée. Nicole picks up on the word, and surprised, asks Brady if he and Arianna didn’t go through with the wedding.

Mia snaps that she is sorry Gabi walked in on them the way she did, but that’s no reason to get nasty. Chad heads off to prepare Gabi’s coffee. Gabi wonders what she ever did to Mia. Mia asks if she means besides finding her medal and giving it to Will. Gabi sarcastically apologizes for keeping Mia from jerking two guys around. Chad walks over with her coffee, but the two girls are oblivious. Gabi wonders why Mia is so angry, since Will dumped her and she now is free to be with Chad. She demands that Mia get off her case from now on.

Brady and Arianna explain that the garden they meant to have their ceremony in was completely flooded thanks to the sprinkler system. Nicole is surprised they decided not to get married over something so minor, and the two explain that the justice of the peace actually found a perfect place on the beach for them to get married, and they’re just waiting for everything to be set up. The two decide to go upstairs to wait on the car that’s being sent over to take them to the beach. Faye calls after them that she hopes they have a lovely wedding as the two head off. Nicole demands to know what is wrong with her. Faye snaps that she is surprised that Nicole didn’t learn anything after what happened with EJ, as she lied about her miscarriage, stole a child, and at the end of the day, EJ still loved Sami more than he loved her. Nicole vows that she will never do anything like that again. Faye is relieved to hear it. Nicole then admits that she was happy with EJ for a little while, but that is nothing compared to what she could have with Brady. She claims that Arianna pushed this wedding, and she saw the look on Brady’s face. She thinks he was relieved the garden was flooded because he secretly wants to marry her, not Arianna. Faye sighs.

Upstairs in their room, Brady wonders how much time they have. Arianna claims that she has to get ready and notices the broken pearls in their box. She sighs and shows Brady what happened. He assured her that she has no need to worry, as they will just get them restrung once they return to Salem. Arianna then confides in him about the woman that helped her get ready, and how she claimed it was a bad omen. Brady doesn’t think that was a nice thing to say, but he reminds Arianna that they love each other, and that they can make their own fate. Arianna admits that she actually believes in fate, and she thinks the universe might be trying to tell them something, as the pearls broke, then Nicole showed up, and then the garden flooded. She knows they love each other and she doesn’t think there should be any hurry for them to get married. Brady wonders what she is trying to say. Arianna explains that she isn’t sure this is the right time or place for this, and that they should probably just wait to get married.

Stefano opens the door to let Will out and finds EJ outside. Will hurries off as Stefano asks if EJ got his message. EJ says he didn’t actually. Rafe shows up just then and breezes in, claiming that he was suspicious the moment EJ got that call about a meeting. He claims that he got to thinking that perhaps Stefano knows more about Anna DiMera than EJ does. Stefano wonders what he is talking about, and Rafe explains that Anna kidnapped Sydney. Stefano stares in shock, asking EJ what the hell is going on.

Mia pretends to put whipped cream on Gabi’s coffee and dumps salt in it instead. Gabi doesn’t notice and she heads off with her coffee. Chad, angry, asks Mia if it’s true that Will was the one that dumped her. Mia thinks Gabi would say anything to make her look bad, but Chad snaps that Gabi isn’t a liar--Mia is. He guesses that all that talk about them having to keep this a secret for a little while was bull, just like her excuse over agreeing to go with both him and Will to the winter dance. Chad accuses Mia of playing games and stringing them both along, but it’s over now, and she has no one at all. He starts to storm off, but Mia begs him to wait.

Stefano scoffs, asking if Rafe and EJ really believe that Anna kidnapped Sydney. EJ snaps that Stefano has already used Sami’s son to get into her home, so he has a hard time believing that Stefano has no idea who might have been working with Anna. Stefano rages that he doesn’t give a damn what EJ thinks. EJ retorts that the FBI thinks that Anna wasn’t working alone on this, and had an accomplice helping her. Rafe asks Stefano if any of this sounds familiar to him. Stefano glares.

Faye tells Nicole that she deserves a man that only wants her. Nicole asks sarcastically if she should follow in her mother’s footsteps and marry a wife-beating rapist. Faye assures Nicole that she wants her life to be different from the one she had. Nicole wails that she is an idiot, as Brady was there for her all along. Faye reminds her that she can’t rewrite history. Nicole cries that everything would have been different if she hadn’t gotten pregnant with EJ’s baby, and that Brady gets her like no one else does. Faye reminds Nicole that Brady is marrying another woman. She thinks that if Nicole truly loves Brady, then she will let him go.

Brady wonders if Arianna is getting cold feet. She says she isn’t, but that she has been in this dress since morning, and they still aren’t married. Brady thinks he can take care of that. He kisses Arianna’s shoulder and slips her dress off. It puddles around her ankles. Arianna sighs, saying that she thinks they are doing this backwards. Brady reminds her that they should have been newlyweds by this point anyway. He then kisses her passionately.

Stefano demands to know what is going on. EJ patiently explains that Anna kidnapped Sydney and that she didn’t do it alone. Stefano guesses that EJ thinks he knows who Anna might have been working with, but he claims that’s ridiculous. EJ thinks if anyone knows, it would be Stefano, but he claims he doesn’t know anything. Rafe asks Stefano if he knows what kind of a financial position Anna was in after Tony’s death, as she may have needed money. Stefano doesn’t give a damn what Anna needs. He pleads with Rafe, saying that Sydney is his granddaughter. He assures him that his grief was real, and that he thought Sydney was dead, just like they all did. He then swears on EJ’s life that he had no idea what Anna was up to.

Mia whines that Chad can’t just walk away, as they had a baby together. Chad snaps at her to never use Grace to make him feel sorry for her, as she never even told him she was pregnant to begin with. Mia claims that she misses Grace, but Chad retorts that Grace might not have died if Mia had taken better care of herself. Mia sobs that that isn’t true. Chad rages that Mia didn’t care about her, and doesn’t care about him or Will either. He thinks Mia only cares about herself, and that’s a good thing for her, because she is the only person she’s got now. Chad huffs off. Mia stares after him, stunned.

Nicole rolls her eyes at her mother’s advice, but Faye tries to assure Nicole that she is smart, and beautiful, and deserves a brand-new start. She adds that that start won’t be with Brady, as it is too late for the two of them, but she adds that it’s not too late for Nicole to have a happy life. Nicole thinks she is right. Elated, Faye asks if she means it. Nicole nods, saying that if she truly loves Brady, then she needs to start a new life--and she will.

Brady and Arianna lie in bed after having made love. The phone rings, and Brady answers. Their car has arrived, and Brady thanks the person. Arianna decides to get showered and dressed again so she won’t be late for her own wedding. Brady asks if she is sure about this. She nods, saying that he convinced her that she was crazy to let Nicole come between them. Arianna hurries off for the bathroom. Brady stares off into space, “Crazy.”

EJ asks if Rafe believe Stefano. Rafe admits that he does. EJ wonders who was working with Anna if it wasn’t Stefano. Rafe thinks there is only one way to find out, and tells EJ that he will have to hop on a plane, go to Santo Domingo, and find out exactly what Anna told Nicole.

Faye can’t believe she got through to Nicole, but Nicole assures her that she did. Faye then admits that she knows she’s not mother of the year, but she does have a daughter that is smarter and stronger than she ever was. She adds that she knows what it’s like to want a man that you can’t have, but Nicole has to grab this second chance. Nicole agrees that that is exactly what she has to do.

Rafe gets a call and hurries off to take it. Stefano wonders why in the world EJ would think he helped Anna kidnap Sydney. EJ admits that he isn’t sure what to think anymore. Kate heads in and asks Stefano for a moment alone. The two head into the living room as Rafe comes back. He informs EJ that it looks like he wont be going to Santo Domingo after all.

Arianna and Brady head down to the café, wondering if the justice of the peace is lost again. Just then, he heads in, and Brady tells him that they are ready to get married. Gordon informs them that that is what he needs to talk to them about, saying that there’s been a shocking turn of events. Just then, Arianna spots Nicole, who is now alone, across the room. She demands to know what Nicole has done now. Nicole sips her drink innocently.

Anna walks into a spa in her robe. An attendant welcomes her to paradise, admitting that not many Americans come here. Anna replies that she wanted to get away from everything and everyone she knows. The man thinks she has come to the right place. Anan chuckles and eyes the attendant, turning her wedding ring around.

Kate guesses that Stefano is shocked. He admits he is, as he never though Anna could do anything like this. Kate replies that it makes her wonder if someone talked Anna into it.


Hope tells Julie, "I messed up. I messed up big time."

Melanie informs Daniel, "You can't forgive her."

Phillip snaps at Carly, "She doesn't want you in her life, so stay out of it."
