Nick tells Will that Gabi won't listen to a word he tells her about him. Will says he's known Gabi for a lot longer than him so if he tells her that she's marrying a lying, blackmailing, homophobic idiot then he's pretty sure she will have a big problem with it. Nick tells Will that he would have a bigger problem as would everyone who covered up his shooting EJ. Nick declares he has no problem with gay people but he just thinks they should have nothing to do with children. Nick warns Will to never try to turn Gabi against him because it won't work and he will use everything he has against him. Nick says it's his wedding day and that's the only reason he's there instead of at the police station. Nick adds that as long as he and Gabi are still in Salem then they are going to run into Will and he doesn't want it to be unpleasant. Will comments on never seeing his daughter. Nick thinks it's all for the best. Will asks why Gabi can't know about it then. Nick says he did it for Will because if Gabi finds out what Will did then she could tell Rafe and Will would spend his life in prison.

Stefano thinks they can work together to get back to their old days. Stefano tells Chad that he's his son and that's all that counts.
Sami says she doesn't need to be reminded how Stefano operates but will do anything for her kids including selling her soul to Stefano if it means Will gets to be in his daughter's life. EJ admits he'd do the same for Johnny. EJ tells her they don't talk to Stefano until they go through every other option. Sami asks what other option there is that doesn't involve EJ going to the darkside. EJ talks about looking into lawyers. Sami says all Gabi has to do is write Nick's name on the birth certificate. Sami begrudgingly agrees to wait to talk to Stefano. They kiss. EJ thanks her. Sami says unless Will's back is against the wall then she won't hesitate to go to Stefano and ask for a favor.

Sonny joins Will at the town square and Will says things didn't go so well as now he knows what he's been doing wrong and that was treating him like he was the same person he was before he went to prison and went nuts. Will says Nick honestly believes that everything he's doing is right. Will says trying to be reasonable is a complete waste of time since Nick doesn't care what anyone wants but himself. Will calls it such a losing battle. Sonny hugs him.
EJ tells Sami that he thinks she's right that at some point that Stefano will be the best option. Sami calls him the only option. EJ says after speaking with Stefano, there is something they can do to assure his help. Sami says whatever it is, she'll do it. EJ warns her as she asks what he's thinking. EJ says he and Sami and the children would have to move in to the DiMera Mansion together.
