Brady sleeps in bed and has a nightmare about Kristen holding John and Marlena at gunpoint and shooting John. Brady dreams of Marlena questioning why he didn't do something and if he can save anyone he loves. Brady wakes up in a panic.
Marlena and John sit at the Pub. Marlena doesn't have an appetite as she can't stop thinking about how Kristen can hurt Sami. Marlena doesn't like Sami working for Kristen. John suggests Kristen could have changed but Marlena says they can't know. Marlena insists that Kristen is evil and will never change.
Kristen tells Kate that she has a message for her from Stefano. Kate asks what it is. Kristen hands her an envelope and tells her to sign where indicated. Kate opens it and inside are divorce papers. Kristen tells her that Stefano thinks it's time to make it official so her marriage is over as soon as she signs the papers.
Sami goes to Jennifer's and apologizes if it's a bad time but she had to tell her. Sami says Nicole was trying to work her and she wants Jennifer to explain it to her so she can figure this out.
Nicole calls Rafe from Daniel's and asks if he has a minute. Rafe is at the coffeehouse. Nicole tells him that she and Daniel are leaving for Hawaii tomorrow. Rafe comments that it's quick. Nicole says they still had some last minute things to do but they figured it was best. Nicole asks if Rafe can stop by to talk about one last thing.
Daniel looks over and sees the baby shirt in the lost and found. Daniel thinks back to having the matching piece in the box of clothes that he donated. Daniel picks up the shirt and reads the tag that reads "Exam Room B 10/8/12 11:45 AM". Daniel notes it is the same day that Nicole lost her baby but notices the time and wonders if Nicole was at the hospital that morning. Daniel thinks back to Nicole telling him that it had been awhile since she'd been to the hospital on that day. Daniel declares that it makes no sense as he then hurries out of the room.
Jennifer tells Sami that she doesn't want to talk about Nicole. Sami tells her that Nicole is always around until tomorrow. Sami informs Jennifer that Daniel and Nicole are leaving for Hawaii tomorrow. Jennifer is surprised that it's happening so soon. Sami says Nicole claims it's because of EJ. Jennifer doesn't want to be part of the conversation and says she can't help her. Sami thinks Nicole must be desperate to call her for help. Sami says Nicole wants to leave Salem but EJ is on the warpath. Jennifer thinks it just sounds like EJ. Sami agrees but says that's the problem. Jennifer tells her that it's been a long day. Sami apologizes and says she'll make it fast. Sami wants to understand why Nicole let her off the hook. Jennifer says it's because she didn't push her. Sami says Nicole is never one to tell the truth. Sami says Nicole would let Jennifer take the blame forever to get EJ off of her back but she changed her story and Sami wants to know why.
Rafe goes to Daniel's to see Nicole. He comments on it being real after he sees packed boxes. Nicole tells him that they need to get out as soon as possible so they decided that they just need some distance from what happened. Rafe notes that she sounds jittery. Nicole admits it's EJ. Rafe wants her to tell him. Nicole says EJ just wants someone to blame for the loss of the baby and he was fine with it being Jennifer but now he wants someone new to blame. Rafe wonders if it's her or Daniel. Nicole worries that it could be Rafe. Nicole says she tried talking to EJ but he was so angry that he wouldn't listen to reason. Rafe asks if she thinks going away will stop him. Nicole thinks it will buy them time but worries about Rafe. Rafe says EJ will do what he's going to do. Nicole thinks she knows of a way to stop him.
Daniel goes to check on donations and asks the woman if they received a box from Salem Gives. She directs him to the box. Daniel looks through it and finds the piece that matches the shirt from the lost and found. Daniel says it's definitely a set and there's no question that they belong together. Daniel says to himself that Nicole must have been an exam room B that morning but wonders why she told him that she hadn't seen the doctor. The woman at the desk asks if everything is okay. Daniel responds that he's not sure.
Marlena tells John that she's sorry. John tells her that this isn't like her. Marlena says Kristen does not bring out the best in her and questions if he can blame her. John says no but Kristen's not going anywhere. Marlena wishes they could just stay out of her way all the time. Brady arrives and offers to join them. John tells Brady to keep Marlena company because he has an errand to run. John exits as Brady sits with Marlena. Brady notices that Marlena is worried about Kristen. Marlena admits that she's worried sick. Brady tells her not to be since he warned her to stay away from their family. Marlena worries about him. Brady says he can take care of himself and their family. Marlena tells him that Kristen is already going after Sami so he shouldn't put himself in the line of fire.
Kristen questions if Kate is really surprised by the divorce. Kate says it's no way to end a marriage. Kristen reminds her that she cheated on Stefano by sleeping with another man who then tried to kill Stefano. Kate hands her back the envelope and refuses to sign. Kristen calls it her choice but says in the end Stefano always gets his way. Kristen adds that the question is how much hurt Kate is willing to take during this as she walks away.
Nicole suggests Rafe try and talk to Sami but Rafe quickly tells her that won't work. Rafe explains that Sami is the last person he could get to do anything. Nicole is surprised things are still bad between them. Rafe says nothing has changed since Sami will never trust him again. Nicole thinks they just fight and then get back together but Rafe proclaims that there's no going back as he and Sami are over.
Jennifer tells Sami that she can't explain Nicole and doesn't want to. Sami questions if it's Daniel. Jennifer wants her to leave but Sami continues. Jennifer asks for a break.
