Gwen tells Jack that she understands the pregnancy was a bomb to drop on him and apologizes for rushing out right afterwards. Jack points out that they are alone now if she feels like sharing. Gwen assumes Jack wants to know when the last time she slept with someone was and who the baby's dad is. Gwen informs him that she's sorry to say that the last time was New Year's Eve, so the only person who could be the father is her brother in law, Chad. Jack points out that was over three months ago.

Brady assures Chloe that he is committed to Kristen. Chloe knows you can't talk people out of their feelings but as someone who really cares about him, she thinks Brady is making a terrible mistake. Chloe calls Brady a good person and a great dad but she thinks he's throwing his life away by being with Kristen.
Sami argues that she and "Susan" are both mothers and she knows how protective "Susan" is of EJ but if she told him what she thought, it would just hurt him and EJ has been hurt enough which "Susan" agrees with. Sami asks what she can do to prove her commitment. "Susan" declares that she will keep Sami's secret but Sami will have to keep hers. Sami promises to take it to her grave.

Eli questions Chanel saying Xander is her husband. Xander jokingly calls Paulina mom. Chanel says it's true that they did it last night. Paulina asks why she would do a dumb thing like that.

Sami asks if she is spying on Brady then. Kristen says she's doing more than that and comments on how hard she's been working to keep Chloe and Brady apart. Kristen complains that Chloe walks around pretending to be just friends with Brady but she finally admitted she had strong feelings for him. Sami tells Kristen that she doesn't even care about this. Kristen continues to complain about Chloe pretending to be sweet while trying to poison Brady against her.
Brady tells Chloe that she's not the first person to have reservations about his relationship with Kristen. Chloe thinks anyone who cares about him would be worried. Brady gets her point but decides this conversation is over. Chloe disagrees and says Nicole didn't call him here so they could talk about Kristen but because she's been wanting to tell him something for a long time now. Brady tells Chloe that she doesn't have to say anything but Chloe says she wants to. Chloe then tells Brady that they should be together again as she thinks it's what is best for him. Brady asks if this is about Chloe looking out for him or saving him from Kristen or himself. Chloe argues that it's her going for what she wants and going for it. Chloe says she's not thinking about Kristen but about what it would be like to be in his arms again.
Sami suggests Kristen just talk to Brady. Kristen admits she almost outed herself earlier but she knows that would be a big mistake. Sami guesses Brady would think what she's doing is crazy. Kristen brings up how Brady freaked out when she broke out of prison to check on him after Chloe almost got him killed so if he found out she was out again, he'd just tell her to go back. Sami asks if Kristen thinks Brady really has feelings for Chloe. Kristen notes that he says he doesn't and he said Chloe isn't a threat but they know the truth about Chloe. Kristen declares that a woman like Chloe cannot be trusted which is why she has to do whatever it takes to save Brady from her. Sami asks what that means exactly. Kristen tells her that there is only so much she can do as Susan, but now she has a partner in crime. Sami has no idea what scheme she's coming up with but declares there is no way in hell that she's getting on that crazy train.
Abigail picks up her phone but tells Chad that she can't do it because just looking at Gwen's name makes her mad so hearing her voice might set her off. Chad suggests she call Jack then and have him get them together again.
Gwen and Jack talk about waiting for the pregnancy test results. Jack asks how she feels. Gwen admits she's scared. Jack guesses that's why she came over to take the test. Gwen admits she didn't want to be alone when she got the answer. Jack then gets a call from Abigail but chooses to ignore it. Gwen then gets her test results and announces she is definitely pregnant.
Kristen argues that Sami swore to keep her secret while Sami argues that she thought she was Susan so the deal was under false pretenses. Kristen says a deal is a deal. Sami refuses to be her partner in crime. Sami brings up Kristen kidnapping her and drugging her as well as what she did with Eric. Kristen argues that Sami's list of crimes isn't short either. Sami says she isn't saying she's a good person but she's a better person than Kristen. Sami adds that Brady would be better off without Kristen in his life. Kristen asks who she is to judge. Sami declares that she's going to call Brady and tell him what's going on right now and that Chloe would be great for him. Sami tries to call Brady but Kristen takes her phone.
Chloe asks Brady to let her finish because she kept it in for so long that if she doesn't say it, she never will. Brady tells her to go ahead. Chloe says she knows how she feels about him but she wouldn't have said anything or hoped they had a chance if she didn't feel like she felt signs from him as well. Chloe knows Brady never said anything but the way he's been acting and the way he sometimes looks at her. Chloe brings up Brady's reaction when he thought she slept with Philip. Brady argues that he just thinks Philip is bad for her. Chloe argues that it wasn't the face of a protective friend. Chloe brings up helping Brady put his shirt on in the hospital after he was shot. Chloe argues that Brady can't tell her that he didn't feel anything between them. Chloe promises that if he feels the same and there's a chance for them then he won't regret it.
Kristen takes Sami's phone and threatens to call EJ. Sami argues that EJ won't take Kristen's word over hers. Kristen says if she can convince Salem that she is Susan Banks then she can convince EJ that Sami is a lying whore. Kristen states that she's a woman who knows what she wants and how far she's willing to go to get it. Sami says she's willing to take the risk. Kristen argues that Sami loves EJ more than she hates her. Kristen adds that Sami just said she was devoted to EJ and how devastating it would be to her marriage if he found out about her and Lucas. Kristen believes Sami won't expose her if it means exposing herself. Sami asks if she's sure about that. Kristen remarks that she has a lot to lose but so does Sami and if the truth comes out, EJ is gone and may never come back. Kristen asks if she really wants to take that chance.
Eli and Paulina walk through the town square. Eli wants her to calm down but she questions if he would calm down if his daughter married that meathead. Eli talks about thinking of all the things that could go wrong for his daughter. Paulina asks Eli what kind of man Xander is. Eli responds that he's trying to think of an answer that won't make this situation worse.
Xander tells Chanel that they need to talk. Chanel says she's sorry about her mom. Chanel tells Xander about wanting to order room service. Xander suggests she dial that back because he's not really that rich. Chanel brings up him being CEO of Titan and shows him his card from his wallet. Xander responds that she's behind on the times and suggests she just order some cereal.
Chloe asks Brady if he doesn't feel anything when she touches him. Chloe promises to never mention it again if Brady tells her there's no chance for them. Brady tells her that he has to go see Rachel because he left her with "Susan". Brady then exits the office.
Kristen tells Sami that it's her choice and asks if she's going to stop Chloe from doing to her what she did to EJ. Sami responds that she doesn't care what Chloe does to her. Kristen argues that she does care if she calls EJ to tell him that his loving wife just crawled out of bed with another man. Sami tells Kristen that she hates her but gives in and agrees to help her. Sami asks what she's even supposed to do and how she's supposed to keep Chloe and Brady apart. Kristen is sure she can figure it out since her scheming is one of the best next to hers. Sami asks what Kristen is going to do. Kristen says she'll go back to being Susan Banks while Sami goes back to being the long suffering wife of EJ DiMera. Kristen tells Sami that her secret is safe with her and gives her phone back to her.
Gwen cries to Jack that she's pregnant and the dad is Abigail's husband. Jack admits it's terrible but there's no way he will let her deal with it alone. Gwen thanks him and knows it's hard on him too. Jack tells her they just have to be careful. Gwen remarks on how Abigail would react if she found out that she's pregnant with her husband's child as Abigail enters the house.
