Kristen points out that she told Brady where Chloe is so now she needs him to answer if he still loves her. Philip then returns to the interrogation room so Brady asks if Chloe is alright. Philip reveals the car wasn't there so Kristen lied again. Kristen insists that was where the car was and asks why she would lie about it. Philip argues that Kristen lies about everything and warns that if Brady doesn't get the truth out of her now, they might never find Chloe.
Jan forces Claire to drive Kate's car and directs her on where to go. They hear pounding in the trunk. Claire questions what the hell that was. Claire worries that something might be wrong with the car. Jan suggests she just ran over a squirrel or something. Claire then suggests that maybe someone is in the trunk.
Xander goes to his room at the Salem Inn, complaining that he should've shot Sami when he had the chance. Xander pulls out his phone and calls Nicole. Nicole questions why the hell he's calling her. Xander demands that she get to his room at the Salem Inn. Nicole tells him there's no chance. Xander warns that if she doesn't come, Eric will find out all about how they slept together.
Sami asks Lucas why else EJ would take the money back. Lucas asks how he found out. Sami guesses Kristen must have told him. Lucas asks why she would do that. Lucas declares that if EJ knew they slept together, he wouldn't just take the money back, he'd be on the first plane to Salem and knocking on the door right now. There is then a knock on the door so Sami worries that it's EJ. Sami tells Lucas that he has to get out of here but Lucas refuses to leave her alone and declares he's not scared of EJ DiMera so he's got this. Lucas answers the door to see Rafe, leaving Sami relieved. Rafe asks if they were expecting someone else. Sami says not at all and asks what's going on. Rafe says he came to ask them both questions about how they ended up in the DiMera basement together. Sami talks about how they thrown in separately, making it clear they were not together. Rafe says he gets that but now needs them to go back to the beginning on how they got mixed up with Kristen in the first place.
Kristen insists that she told the truth. Philip tells her that he just came from the parking lot. Kristen argues that Kate's car could've been stolen or towed. Philip calls her a liar. Kristen swears on Rachel's life that she does not know where Chloe is and begs Brady to believe her.
Jan tells Claire not to be silly as there is no one in the trunk. Claire feels it couldn't help to check but Jan urges her to keep driving. Jan hopes that Belle is confessing to killing Charlie now so Belle will go off to prison and she will get a chance with Shawn. Claire questions her getting a chance with Shawn after kidnapping his daughter. Claire thinks it would be better for her if she just let her go. Jan says she told Belle that she would think about it. Jan blames Belle for turning Shawn against her and that being why she kidnapped Claire. Claire tells Jan that she gets that she's angry but she doesn't want to see her let emotion get in the way of making the right choice. Claire suggests they turn around now but Jan refuses to make any decisions until she knows that Belle held up her end of the bargain. They continue to hear pounding in the trunk so Claire asks if she still thinks that's a squirrel. Jan then orders Claire to pull over. Claire worries about having to hotwire the car again and if it doesn't work, they'll be stuck. Jan tells Claire that she won't leave her in the driver's seat with the engine running. Jan says she will check the trunk and warns Claire to not even think about making a break for it, reminding her that she has a gun. Claire points out that Jan said she wouldn't shoot her. Jan clarifies that she said she wasn't going to kill her, but if she tries to run then she will shoot her in the leg, but at least she won't be dead.
Brady tells Kristen that he believes her. Philip calls him an idiot and says he better pray they find Chloe alive. Philip then exits the room. Kristen thanks Brady for believing in her. Brady says he believes that she doesn't know where the car is but he can't believe that she kidnapped Chloe. Brady questions what Kristen's plan was after putting Chloe in the trunk of a car. Kristen cries that she doesn't know. Brady assumes she planned to put a hit on Chloe and asks if she told Xander to shoot her too.
Nicole goes to Xander's room and says that he swore he would keep his mouth shut. Xander tells her that the situation has changed and he's in a precarious position financially speaking. Nicole thought he was CEO of Titan and had plenty of cash. Xander says not anymore as he had big debts to settle from his past. Nicole suggests he start putting cash away now and tells him to have a nice life. Xander tells him that all his credit cards have been cut off and he's about to be evicted. Xander adds that he had a way out but Sami screwed him out of 10 million dollars. Nicole is not surprised but says it's not her problem. Xander then reveals to Nicole that Sami saw them stumbling in to the Salem Inn together. Xander says he didn't say anything to her but threatens to if Nicole doesn't pay him. Nicole asks if he's seriously asking her for 10 million dollars. Xander warns that if she doesn't then he will be forced to tell Sami that her suspicions were correct.
Rafe questions how Sami ended up in Kristen's crosshairs. Sami guesses it's because Kristen was pretending to be Susan and from day one, she thought something was off. Rafe and Lucas both ask why she didn't say anything. Sami says she wasn't sure but she eventually figured it out and that was when she went to call Rafe. Sami adds that is when Kristen drugged her and dragged her in to the DiMera Dungeon so he can stop grilling her now. Rafe questions why she's so defensive. Sami claims she's just upset from the whole experience. Sami remarks that her and Lucas were stuck there together and don't really get along. Rafe then asks how Lucas got roped in to this. Lucas tells Rafe that he already knows his story. Rafe wants to hear it again. Lucas goes over how he came to Rafe because his mother was missing but he wouldn't help him, so he had to look for her himself. Rafe apologizes for not taking his concerns more seriously but says that Lucas didn't give him much to go on. Rafe asks what happened next. Sami reminds Rafe that Lucas is still recovering from a head wound. Lucas explains that he went to the DiMera Mansion looking for Jake and then Kristen knocked him out with a fire poker. Rafe asks why. Sami guesses Kristen thought Lucas was on to her Susan impersonation too. Rafe feels there is something Lucas is not telling him, like at the police station when he said he thought Kate left town on her own but Lucas insisted that was not the case. Rafe brings up Lucas thinking something bad had happened but he wouldn't tell him what. Lucas says it doesn't matter anymore since Kate isn't missing. Rafe believes that Lucas knew Kristen had kidnapped Kate, but wouldn't tell him because he did not want to betray a confidence of someone else involved or that person may never forgive him. Rafe asks who that person is and if Sami has any idea.
Xander warns Nicole that the clock is ticking. Nicole tells him to go ahead and tell Sami. Xander says her marriage to Eric will be destroyed. Nicole disagrees because she will deny it. Xander points out that Sami won't believe her. Nicole argues that Sami knows Xander is desperate for money, so she'll just explain that he decided to blackmail her when Sami backed out. Xander says he'll just tell her what they did all over the room. Nicole argues that everyone knows she hates him, so no one will believe she wanted to have sex with him after everything he did to her. Xander notes that she did and he's prepared to tell Sami all about it. Nicole argues that everyone in town knows he's a liar since he switched the babies and deceived Sarah for a year. Nicole points out that there is no proof that they had sex, but Xander claims there is a witness.
Kristen tells Brady that she did not have a plan for Chloe. Brady questions her tying Chloe up and putting her in a trunk for the hell of it. Kristen claims she wasn't thinking clearly at all and cries that she was just trying to keep everything from falling apart. Brady argues that her panic could get people that he cares about killed. Kristen swears she feels sick about that but cries that she needs Brady to acknowledge what's going on between them. Brady questions what she's talking about. Kristen states that she told Brady that she loves him but he didn't answer whether he still loves her because Philip came in. Kristen asks Brady if he still loves her.
Philip goes to the police station and tells Shawn that he needs his help finding Chloe. Shawn responds that his guys are on it. Philip informs him that Kristen claims that she put Chloe in the trunk of Kate's car, but the car is missing. Philip argues that even if he doesn't like him, Chloe is Shawn's friend. Shawn tells him to find somebody else because he's already working on something and tells Philip to back off. Shawn apologizes and tells him that he just needs to find Claire because she was kidnapped by Jan Spears.
Jan gets out of the car. Claire tells herself that she could run right now. Jan remarks that she's sure it's nothing dangerous, but if it is then she will just blow it away. Jan opens up the trunk and finds Chloe, tied up inside. Chloe puts her hands up as she cries for Jan to help her. Jan remarks that Chloe has gotten herself in quite the bind. Jan tells Chloe to stop all the banging because it's very annoying. Chloe tries screaming for help. Jan tells her that is not going to happen.
Shawn fills Philip in on Jan faking still being in a coma and snuck out of the hospital to murder Charlie Dale. Philip asks where Jan is now. Shawn explains that he and Belle tried to set Jan up to confess, but she figured it out and took Claire as some sort of revenge. Shawn adds that they believe Jan is armed. Philip asks if he thinks Jan will hurt Claire. Shawn prays that she won't, but Jan is so unpredictable so Belle is with Justin now because she promised to confess to killing Charlie Dale even though it's not true, but it might be the only way to save their daughter.
Nicole accuses Xander of bluffing about their being a witness to them having sex. Xander reminds her about the morning after when she came back for her wedding ring and she heard a phone in the bathroom. Nicole notes that he said that was his phone but Xander reveals that he lied. Xander informs Nicole that someone was listening to the whole conversation where Nicole made him swear to never tell anyone they had sex. Nicole questions who it was.
Kristen knows Brady is angry with her and says he has every right to be after what she's done to him. Kristen knows she was out of control and wrong but says she did it because she loves him. Kristen cries that she was alone and scared so she went to really dark places. Kristen tells Brady that she can't live without him. She asks him again if he still loves her. Brady admits that he does and always will.
Sami asks why she would know what Lucas is thinking since he doesn't confide in her. Rafe guesses Lucas was protecting Sami and questions why Sami didn't want him to know that Kristen had kidnapped Kate. Rafe guesses that Kristen has something on Sami and asks if she cares to tell him what it is. Sami argues that Kristen is a psychopath who hates her. Sami adds that she's in custody and they have nothing that can help. Rafe points out that she completely dodged the question of if Kristen is holding something over her. Rafe asks if Sami doesn't care that Kate is in a coma and Chloe is missing. Sami says she does so Rafe tells her to help him. Rafe brings up having this same conversation when he questioned Allie after she took Kate's gun and he was trying to help her, but Sami didn't trust him enough. Rafe argues that Sami is making things worse again. Sami repeats that she doesn't know anything. Lucas reminds Sami that the last time she kept information from the police, she went to jail. Sami argues that she was protecting their daughter because that's her job. Rafe responds that his job is making sure Kristen pays for what she has done and to find Chloe before it's too late, but he needs Sami to start talking. Sami claims that she doesn't know anything so there's nothing she can do to help him hurt Kristen. Rafe doesn't know why he bothers. Sami complains that Rafe asked her a bunch of questions so her question to him is if he has talked to Xander.
Nicole asks Xander who the witness is. Xander refuses to tell her for free, but says if she pays then he will make sure they keep their mouth shut. Nicole argues that she doesn't have 10 million dollars. Xander says he will take 5. Nicole says she doesn't have close to that either. Xander gets that she can't give him what she doesn't have, but there is one other thing she can give him. Nicole says no chance. Xander clarifies that he's not talking about sex so Nicole asks what he wants from her. Xander responds that he wants a job.
Philip knows Shawn has to focus on finding Claire but asks him to help with one quick thing so Shawn agrees. Philip informs Shawn that Kristen said she put Chloe in the trunk of Kate's car so he went to where she said Kate's car was parked, but it was missing. Philip asks Shawn to set him up with a laptop with the security footage so he can figure out what happened. Philip adds that Chloe's life may depend on it.
Jan tells Chloe that she's not going to shoot her. Chloe continues crying as Jan then shuts the trunk with Chloe inside. Jan gets back in the car and asks Claire if she was going somewhere. Claire says she just scared her and asks what was in the trunk. Jan tells her that there was a person in the trunk and remarks that people say she's crazy.
Kristen tells Brady that hearing him say that he loves her is what she lives for. Kristen knows she's disappointed him and swears to make it up to him. Kristen knows they can get through this and that Kate will wake up, then they will find Chloe and everything will be okay because Brady loves her. Brady says it won't as she didn't let him finish. Brady declares that he still loves Kristen, but he can't be with her anymore.
Claire questions how there is a person in the trunk. Jan says she has no idea how she got there. Claire asks how she can just leave them in there. Jan responds that she already has her hands full with Claire, so she doesn't have time to deal with Chloe too. Jan informs her that Chloe is bound and gagged, but she didn't do it and jokes that maybe somebody didn't like her singing. Claire worries that Chloe could suffocate in there. Jan says it wouldn't be their fault. Claire tells Jan to let her out but Jan says that's not her job, it's on whoever put her in there. Jan adds that whoever did it apparently hates Chloe even more than she does.
Kristen argues that Brady is just upset and doesn't know what he's saying. Kristen says he can be with her if he loves her. Brady states that he loves her but he hates what she does and can't stop doing. Kristen claims she changed. Brady thought she did which is why he was willing to build a life with her. Brady calls it tragic as she's behind bars and he's raising their daughter by himself and now this. Kristen says he understood why she went to prison. Brady says that's why he was willing to wait because he thought they were a team but then she went rogue. Brady talks about visiting her whenever he could and doing everything in his power to assure her that he was devoted to her, but it's never enough. Brady complains that Kristen broke out of prison twice. Kristen asks what she was supposed to do when Brady got shot. Brady tells her that she's not supposed to pull a gun people or switch places with Susan to spy on him and Chloe. Kristen says it's because she loves him but Brady shouts that he doesn't want to be loved like this. Kristen asks what he means. Brady tells her that it's too much. Brady thought her obsession was in the past but it's still here and it's never going to change. Brady declares he can't do it anymore. Kristen begs him not to give up on her. Kristen knows she's done horrible things but argues that he can't blame all of it on her when he just admitted to having feelings for Chloe. Brady argues that it's not about Chloe. Kristen complains that Chloe was trying to replace her and was aggressively working to convince him that he was better off without her. Kristen guesses it worked. Brady tells her that his feelings for Chloe have nothing to do with the reason he can't be with her. Kristen asks him what it is then. Brady responds that the reason is her.
Nicole asks if Xander is insane as she can't give him a job. Xander argues that she runs Basic Black. Nicole reminds him that Brady is her partner and he hates him more than she does. Xander suggests just saying she needs him on the team and points out that Chloe is missing so he can take her job. Nicole calls him a monster and questions wanting her to pitch to Brady that they need to replace Chloe. Nicole tells him to forget it so Xander says he'll have no choice but to tell Sami. Nicole repeats that Sami won't believe him but Xander says it won't matter because she will run with it to Eric because she would love for Eric to be away from Nicole, so she would jump at the chance to tell him about her betrayal.
Rafe mentions hearing Xander went after Sami and Lucas. Sami informs him that Xander was on Kristen's payroll as she sent him there to kill them. Rafe asks why he didn't. Sami explains that she offered him more money not to. Rafe questions double crossing. Sami says he can ask Xander. Lucas hands Rafe the gun that Xander used. Sami asks if they are done here. Rafe says they apparently are but warns Sami that whatever she is hiding, will come out. Sami questions why Rafe is so convinced that she and Lucas have some big secret. Rafe points out that their poker faces suck and then adds that he didn't say Sami and Lucas but it's interesting that she did. Rafe suggests Sami try to act a little less guilty as he then exits the room. Sami complains about Rafe always giving her hell. Lucas asks if she thinks he knows they slept together. Sami says no but he definitely knows that they are lying about something. Lucas worries that it's a matter of time before he figures it out. Sami says not if he listens to her and blames being thrown off her game on thinking it was going to be EJ at the door, so that's how Rafe got suspicious. Sami says they just have to be smoother to keep the secret. Lucas reminds her that Kristen knows. Sami assures that Kristen won't tell anyone. Lucas points out that she's been caught so she has nothing to lose now.
Brady brings up Kristen being the reason that Kate is in a coma, sending Xander to kill Sami and Lucas, and whatever she was planning to do with Chloe. Kristen believes that he will calm down and want to forgive her. Kristen says she will go back to prison and pay for everything she's done. Kristen asks Brady to give her another chance. Brady wishes he could. Kristen asks about their daughter. Brady says that's all he's thinking about. Kristen argues that she's not a threat to anyone but Brady as long as he's with her, she is. Brady declares that it breaks his heart, but for the sake of his family, friends, and their daughter, he has to end this with her. Kristen pleads with him but Brady tells her that he's sorry and it's over for good this time. Brady then exits as Kristen breaks down crying.
Shawn sets Philip up with a laptop and the security footage. Shawn says he'll leave him to it and he's going to find Claire. Philip finds the footage of Kate's car and can't believe that Kate was telling the truth. Shawn wonders why the car is gone today then. They end up seeing Jan and Claire on the footage. Shawn declares that Jan kidnapped his daughter and stole Kate's car. Philip adds that is with Chloe in the trunk.
Chloe remains locked in the trunk as she screams for help. Claire worries about Chloe possibly dying and asks Jan to just call 911 anonymously and they can just leave Chloe by the side of the road so someone can help her. Jan says she's sorry but no can do because Chloe saw her so she would rat her out. Jan declares she'll just have to make the best of it and adds that two hostages are better than one. Claire pleads with Jan not to do this. Jan tells her to just shut up and drive.
Nicole tells Xander that even if she could give him a job, it wouldn't be for awhile. Xander gives her 24 hours to get Brady on board. Nicole complains that's not enough time. Xander says it better be and then once he knows it's done, his lips are sealed, otherwise he will have to call Sami and spill the beans. Xander tells her he will see her at the office. Nicole hates him for this. Xander responds that she brought it on herself by going to bed with him. Nicole then goes to leave Xander's room, right as Rafe arrives.
