Nicole tells Eric that as hard as it is to pass up living with nuns next to her ex-lover, she will make the difficult choice to let that opportunity go. Eric tells her that there won't be much other opportunities for her so he asks what she will do for money. Nicole says she has money left over from previous jobs.

John questions if Marlena was upset because Brady apologized to Kristen. Marlena responds sure and says Brady had been her ally. John tells her it's not a war.

Jennifer says she didn't insist and would've stopped it if he wanted. Maggie says Daniel never denies anything from Jennifer. Jennifer doesn't want to be blamed. Maggie informs her that Daniel told her that he told Jennifer that he still loved her. Maggie thinks Jennifer is guilty because she can't say she loves him too. Jennifer calls it not true and says that's not why she's doing this. Maggie thinks Jennifer is doing this to make it up for Daniel by giving him back the other love of his life. Jennifer wonders if that's so bad. Maggie says it is if it jeopardizes Daniel's future and accuses Jennifer of trying to ease her guilty conscience. Maggie demands that Jennifer talk Daniel out of this before it's too late.
Nicole tells Eric that she already tried talking to Daniel and couldn't go through with it. Eric wonders how it could be worse than talking to Jennifer.

John responds that it won't because he won't let it as he hugs her.
Kristen tells Brady that he did his damage control for Marlena and wonders why he's still there. Brady responds that he doesn't know. Kristen doubts it's the beginning of a beautiful friendship but it's nice to be in the same room without him attacking her character. Brady jokes with her about it and brings up being on the church board together so they should get along for everyone's benefit. Kristen agrees. Kristen tells Brady that he has to leave now as she has things to do since she spent all day at the hospital. Kristen goes to leave but gets a pain in her arm when she tries to open the door.

Jennifer tells Maggie that she wants to help Daniel do this and talks about the low percentage in the risks. Jennifer talks about Daniel being a surgeon again and can't believe she'd want Daniel not to do this. Maggie wants Daniel to wait until the odds are better and doesn't think Jennifer isn't thinking clearly. Jennifer says she is and how Daniel feels about her is irrelevant because he's doing the right thing. Maggie disagrees and calls Jennifer dangerously naive for not seeing that she pushed Daniel into this. Maggie declares that if Jennifer won't stop Daniel then it's up to her. Jennifer stops her and asks if they are okay. Maggie says she'll always love Jennifer but she wishes she would butt out of her son's life as she then exits.

Nicole tells him she's so sorry for accusing Jennifer of killing her baby as she was a desperate grieving woman but it doesn't excuse it. Daniel tells her that she doesn't have to do this but Nicole insists that she does. She had to say it to Jennifer and needs to say it to him. Nicole recalls Daniel being so good to her and she did nothing but pay him back with lies and deceit because she thought it was the only way to hang on to him. Nicole adds that he has every right to hate her for the rest of his life but she hope some day, he can find it in his heart to forgive her for what she did.
Marlena goes to the rectory to see Eric. She brought him cookies and hugs him. Eric mentions Marlena ditching lunch. She apologizes for that. Eric asks if everything is okay.

John tells him that he knows what happened between him and Kristen. Brady asks if he means letting her off of the hook. John asks if there was something else. Brady says no and he just thought it was the right thing to do since he's gotten so many second chances. Brady hopes he's not making a mistake and comments that she's not easy to read. John tells Brady that forgiving her for what she did in the past doesn't mean he has to deal with her in the present. Brady sees he got a call from Eric and says he needs to explain why he rushed out of the Pub earlier so he walks away to call him back.
Marlena tells Eric that she never thought she and John would be in this position again. Eric understands why she would be completely wary of Kristen. Marlena calls him the only person that understands as Kristen then arrives. She says she should've waited but had church business to discuss.

Eric remembers that Marlena has every reason not to trust her.
Daniel paces as Nicole comments that he's not saying anything and asks if she should leave. Daniel accepts her apology. Nicole is happy and thanks him then stops from attempting to hug him and says she should know when to leave. Nicole notices the research on his table and asks about it. Daniel tells her it's information on a new treatment for hand tremors. Nicole asks how he arranged it. Daniel tells her that it was all Jennifer. Daniel adds that there are risks but if it works then he could be a surgeon again. Nicole knows he wanted that more than anything and comments on Jennifer making it happen for him. Nicole wonders why she never thinks to do things like that. Nicole is glad that Jennifer is still looking out for him. Daniel calls Jennifer a good friend and says he needs to get going. Nicole asks when he does his treatment. Daniel says the injection will be in about an hour so he should know if it works later today. Nicole wishes him luck and says she'll see him around as she exits. Nicole says to herself that Daniel said he and Jennifer are just friends so she wonders if Jennifer is keeping him at arms length and if she's stupid. Nicole decides she's going to find out for sure and heads to the elevator.

Eric tells her it will take time and a lot of hard work. Kristen responds that she knows exactly what she has to do.
Nicole goes to Jennifer's and Abigail answers the door. Nicole tells her that she apologized to Jennifer but knew she needed to say something to Abigail too.

Daniel says he's sorry but he's made up his mind on this as he walks away leaving Maggie looking tearful.
Kristen looks through her purse for a check for the chuch from DiMera Enterprises. Eric has to go so Father Tobias says he will wait on Kristen.

Brady arrives and hides behind the door listening in as Tobias asks if there's anything he can do. Kristen says maybe if he has a little time now.
