EJ brings up that John's company is in trouble and it could go under because of the scandal. EJ calls it a mess. John asks what his point is. EJ says the point is that the people who stand to lose in this situation are the investors and employees. EJ informs him that they will lose their jobs after John loses the civil suit and then his company will disappear. Stefano claims that they are trying to salvage what's left of John's reputation.

Stefano tells John that his ego is clouding his judgment. EJ calls John's theory entertaining and creative but the police or FBI have no evidence of it. Stefano tells John that the people are going to find out that he turned down the offer to save their jobs. John tells Stefano that he's good because if he accepts the offer then they would get his company and he'd still go to prison but if he doesn't accept it then they still go to the press. Stefano tells John that there is no better alternative for him but for his former employees there is. Stefano tells John that it's over for him but does not have to be for his employees.

Bo and Hope show Rafe and Carrie the IOU courtesy note from Stefano to Alice. They talk about how Stefano must have been scared to death about losing EJ.

Rafe and Carrie talk to Bo and Hope more about trying to get to Stefano. Hope wants Stefano to think about what happens next time EJ gets hurt. Rafe points out that Stefano's promise was to Alice and nobody else. Hope wants to try and sell him on the idea that it's something Alice would have wanted. Bo suggests it could be why Alice saved it all these years to use it against Stefano. Carrie and Rafe agree that they have nothing to lose since the photo evidence could take weeks or months. Hope really thinks she can get Stefano to honor his promise to Alice.
Marlena asks EJ and Stefano why they are still here. EJ points out that John will lose his company anyways. EJ says they could save his company. Marlena tells them to leave her out of this.

Brady and Madison finish decorating their tree and are happy with it. Madison thanks Brady and calls it an amazing day. Brady then kisses Madison.
Rafe goes over everything with Hope, Bo, and Carrie again. Rafe don't think Stefano will exonerate John without implicating himself. Carrie explains how Stefano wouldn't have to implicate himself and thinks they would still be better off than they are now. Rafe worries about letting the DiMeras walk again. Carrie just wants John to be freed. Hope brings up how Stefano is and says he better honor his promise to Alice or else.
John asks Stefano how he set him up. EJ and Stefano both call John delusional. John wonders if Stefano got to one of his employees or planted someone. Marlena thinks it make sense. John brings up a secretary that was signed who was gone right before the FBI contacted him. John accuses them and thinks the secretary was theirs. John says he put it all together now. Marlena tells them to forget it since they will never have control of John's company. Stefano thinks John is putting his ego above his employees. Marlena thinks John is keeping his employees from the DiMeras. EJ tells them that their money is what will feed these people. John thinks they will start manipulating the people. Stefano compares their reputations and says John is the one serving life in prison. Marlena thinks justice would be for EJ and Stefano to be in prison and thinks it could still happen. EJ claims that they didn't do anything. Marlena points out that they are both beginning to sweat. EJ and Stefano laugh it off. Stefano says John has brought this all on himself and it's a beautiful thing to watch.
Madison finds a present under the tree and asks Brady where it came from. Brady jokes with her about it so Madison tries to open it but Brady takes it and says that they open presents on Christmas day. They joke around about it and end up kissing in bed again.
Hope thinks the letter to Alice can take Stefano back to a time when he was scared for EJ's life and needed Alice. Hope wants to sell him on the idea that it's what Alice would have wanted. Rafe says he's never seen that side of Stefano. Hope says Alice is the one who could show that side.
EJ tells John that their offer expires in 24 hours but John tells them no again. Stefano tells John that he's making a very big mistake. John responds that they will see. EJ and Stefano then exit. Marlena tells John that he did the right thing. John hopes that he did and hugs Marlena.
