Nick asks who else knows since he knows he told T. Nick then realizes Will had told Sonny too. Nick asks Will if he really wants his boyfriend, father, and his friend T to have to testify in court. Nick tells Will that he has him dead to rights so the question is what Will's going to do about it. Nick claims he's not trying to ruin Will's life but that he's trying to take care of his family. Nick asks if Will wants to take care of his and brings up Hope, Roman, and Rafe having to investigate the case. Nick adds that Lucas would have to testify and get charged with perjury for lying the first time. Sonny calls it blackmail. Nick says it's a choice since Will claims the baby and Gabi mean so much to him then he can either put them first willingly or he can force his hand to make sure the entire world finds out what he did. Nick tells him to take some time and think about it. Nick warns him that prison is not fun, especially for someone like Will. Nick then exits. Sonny hugs Will.
Nicole tells Eric that she doesn't think she deserves love. Nicole says Eric told Kevin that everyone deserves a second chance but she's gotten 20 and ends up where she is.

Brady asks if it's about John and Marlena. Kristen says it kind of is but much more. Kristen says she tried to erase it and pretend it never happened to her. Brady asks what she's talking about.
