Susan Banks paces in prison, wondering why she is still there if people know she's not Kristen. Marlena arrives so Susan apologizes for everything and swears she didn't mean to do everything and that she did it for Marlena and John.
John is at home, on the phone with Steve. John mentions Brady taking off from the hospital so he needs help looking for him. Brady then walks in the door so John says nevermind and hangs up. Brady apologizes for worrying him. John questions where he went. Brady responds that he went to see Kristen.
Kristen remains in the interrogation room. Chad enters and questions what the hell is the matter with her for putting Kate in a coma.
Jake sits at Kate's bedside in the hospital. Jake encourages that she's going to be alright and calls her the strongest person he knows. Kayla enters and announces that she got Kate's latest scans back.
Gabi goes to Rafe's and comments on Ava being there as she asks where Rafe is. Ava responds that Rafe is working late, so she's bringing him food. Gabi questions them still playing house. Ava says Rafe has been incredibly generous in letting her stay so she's doing anything she can to help. Gabi complains that Rafe is a sucker for a damsel in distress. Gabi then tells Ava that if she really wanted to help, she would pack up and move out.
Nicole goes to leave Xander's hotel room, right as Rafe arrives. Nicole tells Rafe that she can explain. Rafe hopes so because he can't understand why she would be in Xander's room after the hell that he has put her through. Nicole tells him that she does not want to be here but she needed to talk to Xander. Xander adds that he asked Nicole to come see him. Rafe questions what is going on between them.
Gabi tells Ava that Rafe is loyal to her first and that Ava is nothing to him, but he's too nice to throw her out. Ava remarks that unlike his sister, Rafe is very nice. Ava then reveals that they are dating. Gabi argues that it's only a matter of time before Rafe gets tired and moves on. Gabi tells Ava that she came to tell Rafe there has been no change with Kate and mentions that Rafe and Kate used to be close. Ava agrees to pass on the message. Gabi says to tell Rafe that she will be in the hospital with Jake in case Rafe wants to stop by. Ava thought Jake was dating Kate. Gabi explains that she and Jake got back together, and they are madly in love.
Kayla tells Jake that she has left messages for Philip and Lucas, as the swelling on Kate's brain has receded so they are going to start taking her out of the coma. Jake calls that great. Kayla warns that when Kate wakes up, she could be perfectly fine or she could possibly have brain damage but they won't know until she fully wakes up.
Marlena talks about Susan always leading with her heart and sometimes getting in to trouble because of it. Susan says that's just who she is and she doesn't want anyone else to get hurt. Marlena informs her that Kristen is now in custody, so she persuaded the warden that Susan should be free to go. Susan excitedly hugs Marlena and asks how she did it. Marlena admits there was some concern that Susan should be held responsible for helping Kristen escape, but she was able to help the authorities understand that Kristen took advantage of Susan. Marlena gives Susan clothes to change in to and informs her that she's going to take her home with her.
Kristen tells Chad that she's really sorry about Kate. Chad asks about kidnapping Chloe and stashing her in a car. Chad questions again what the hell is wrong with her. Kristen shouts that she didn't want any of this to happen, but she did it all for Brady. Chad asks if this is her idea of love. Kristen tells him that Brady now wants nothing to do with him. Chad questions what she thought was going to happen. Kristen doesn't want a lecture and says she needs Chad's help. Kristen declares that she needs to get out of here, and Chad is the only one who can make that happen. Chad asks if she's lost her mind. Kristen argues that Chad has the money and power to give her a new life. Chad questions if she's going to come up with another crazy scheme to run away with Rachel and hope that Brady will follow. Kristen complains that she can't go back to prison. Kristen brings up their father and how Stefano would say family is everything. Kristen declares that no matter what she has done, they are still family. Kristen repeats that she needs Chad's help. Chad responds that they may be DiMeras and he loves her as a sister, but he didn't condone the things Stefano did and he sure as hell doesn't condone what she did to Kate.
Kayla informs Jake that she has dialed back the medication so Kate can begin to wake up. Jake asks if he can stay with her. Kayla thinks Kate would like that.
Ava questions Gabi and Jake being back together while Kate is in a coma. Ava asks if Kate knows. Gabi responds that she doesn't know the details but she did find them in bed together. Ava argues that falling in to bed doesn't make a relationship. Gabi insists that she and Jake are in love and Jake is going to tell Kate as soon as she gets better. Gabi warns Ava not to mess with Rafe because he has had his heart broken way too many times, so if Ava hurts him, she will find her. Gabi then exits.
Xander informs Rafe that he asked Nicole to see him because he had a proposition for her. Nicole explains that Xander just wanted a job at Basic Black. Rafe brings up Xander kidnapping her and blackmailing her in to marrying him in the past. Xander remarks that they have had ups and downs, but sometimes one has to be practical. Rafe responds that it's great that Xander is looking for legitimate work but there is no way that Nicole would ever hire her. Nicole then admits that she is considering it which shocks Rafe.
Marlena goes home with Susan. Susan rushes to Brady and asks if he's okay since Marlena told him about the car crash. Brady says that he's fine. Susan says she never wanted anyone to get hurt and she truly thought she was protecting him from Chloe. Susan adds that she should've known what Kristen was up to. Brady understands her heart was in the right place and admits he got caught up in Kristen's lies too. Susan asks if he can forgive her. Brady says there's nothing to forgive, but forgiving himself for what happened to Kate and Chloe is another thing. Brady is glad he saw the light and was able to end things with Kristen. Marlena guesses that must have been so hard for him. Susan offers to do anything she can to make it up to him, like watching Rachel. Marlena says that's sweet of her but she thinks Roger is going to want Susan home soon. Susan admits she misses him. Marlena goes to make tea to welcome Susan home while Susan goes to wash off.
Chad knows Kristen is in pain but tells her that while she is in prison, she has to find a purpose other than Brady. Chad reminds Kristen of when she was going to become a nun and suggests maybe she should reconnect to her faith. Kristen responds that she will do that. Chad encourages her to think of Rachel and how much she will need her. Kristen cries that she thinks about Rachel every minute of every day and that's why she will have to find the good inside of herself again. Chad encourages that he knows it's there. Kristen appreciates him saying that. Chad adds that he will be there for her daughter like a lot of people will be. Kristen asks Chad to talk about her to Rachel and tell her how much she loves her, which he agrees to do. Kristen says she has to ask him a favor. Chad says as long as it doesn't involve breaking the law. Kristen tells him that she needs a pen and paper to write an important note.
Jake informs Kayla that he and Kate are no longer a couple. Kayla admits she did not know that. Jake explains that he still cares about her and wants to be there for her in any way he can, so he asks if he can still stay. Kayla agrees as she doesn't know how long it will take Kate to come out of the coma, but it would be better if she wasn't alone when she does. Jake thanks Kayla as she exits the room. Jake sits back at Kate's side and holds her hand, telling her that he definitely still cares about her as she is so important to him and always will be. Jake adds that he's so sorry for disappointing her and letting her down. Jake declares that when she wakes up, he will explain everything. Jake prays that Kate can understand it.
Rafe argues that Nicole cannot be serious about hiring Xander since she hates his guts for good reason. Rafe needs Nicole to explain. Nicole tells him that Chloe is missing and Brady is still recovering, so she could really use the help. Xander adds that Nicole has realized he has a lot to offer. Rafe knows something is going on here and questions what it is. Nicole insists that it's just Xander needing a job and her needing help, adding that it's only temporary. Nicole asks Rafe if there is any news on Chloe. Rafe informs her that Kristen finally started cooperating but they still have not found Chloe. Nicole hopes they find her soon. Rafe says that's the plan. Rafe argues that he understands Nicole is overwhelmed but Xander is not the answer. Rafe adds that Brady would never okay her hiring him. Xander remarks that Brady would ignore a brilliant opportunity over a silly grudge. Rafe questions what value Xander offers to Basic Black. Nicole points out that Xander did work for the competitor, so he would know about Titan's strategy. Rafe then reveals that Xander tried to kill Sami and Lucas and asks if that changes her mind.
Brady tells John that he's going to the police department to see if there's any news on Chloe. John stops him and assures that if Rafe or Shawn have any news, they will let them know. John encourages Brady to continue recovering. Marlena comes back and reveals that Susan is not in her room so she asks if anyone saw her leave. Brady says no. John suggests she could've gone out the back way. Marlena wonders where she went.
Susan goes to the interrogation room to confront Kristen. Kristen apologizes for Susan being in prison longer than they agreed. Susan is sorry that she agreed to her plan and says she wouldn't have if she knew people were going to get hurt. Kristen argues that she never wanted that and was just trying to hang on to the man she loves. Susan remarks that didn't go so well. Kristen acknowledges that she lost Brady forever and without him, her life may as well be over. Susan urges her not to say that as there is plenty for her to live for. Kristen complains that she has ruined everything. Kristen repeats that she's sorry for what she has put her through. Susan tells Kristen that she forgives her. Susan relates to loving big and comments that people like them will go to extremes to protect the people they love.
Gabi joins Jake in Kate's room, where he informs her that Kate is being brought out of her coma. Jake notes that it could take awhile before she regains consciousness and Kayla warned that there might be some brain damage, but hopefully she will make a full recovery. Jake assures that it changes nothing for them. Gabi brings up Kate thinking Jake only slept with her because Kristen broke them up, so he didn't get to explain that he never stopped loving her. Gabi asks what if Kate wakes up ready to pick up where they left off and if he's going to tell her the truth. Jake assures that he will and hopes that she will be understanding. Gabi mocks the idea of Kate being a very understanding person. Jake tells Gabi that he loves her and kisses her as Kate then begins to wake up. Jake goes to her and tells Kate that he's here and she's safe in the hospital. Kate's eyes open as she calls out to Jake but then reveals that she cannot see him. Kate cries that she can't see anything. Jake wants to go get Kayla but Kate asks him not to leave. Gabi decides she will go get Kayla then and exits. Kate questions why Gabi is there.
Chad goes to John and Marlena's. Brady tells him that he really is sorry for what Kristen did to Kate. Chad responds that he's sorry too as his sister is out of control. Chad mentions that he just came from seeing her and confirms Kristen told him that Brady ended things with her, which is why he is here. Chad gives Brady a note for Rachel as Kristen wanted to tell her in her own words why she had to go away. Marlena invites Chad to stay and have tea but Chad says he's going back to the hospital to check on Kate. John asks him to keep them posted on that. Chad adds that when he was with Kristen, she wanted him to help her escape. Chad says obviously he didn't, but thought it was something they should know.
Kristen admits she went to extremes but only because she didn't want Chloe stealing Brady or Rachel away from her. Susan points out that now Kristen lost them only because of herself. Susan adds that Kristen will have time to think about all her wrongdoings in prison. Kristen asks if Susan will go back to Memphis now. Susan mentions that she offered to stay and help with Rachel but Marlena said she doesn't need her help. Susan says she will come back to check on Brady and Rachel. Kristen thanks her for forgiving her and asks if they are friends. Susan agrees that they are. Kristen doesn't know if she will ever see her again so she asks for a hug, which Susan gives her. Kristen then uses the hug to choke Susan unconscious. Susan then drops to the floor as Kristen declares she's sorry but there is no way she's going back to prison.
Nicole questions Xander trying to kill Sami and Lucas. Xander argues that Sami is a drama queen and she stirs up all kinds of trouble. Rafe decides he needs to question Xander. Xander suggests Nicole take the time to go visit Brady and convince him that hiring him is a smart move. Nicole agrees and exits the room. Rafe wants Xander to tell him his version of what happened with Sami and Lucas. Xander responds that there is nothing to tell, so Rafe questions how they ended up with his gun then. Xander claims they must have stolen it and tries to take it back but Rafe notes that it could be evidence in an attempted murder investigation. Xander questions taking Sami's word. Rafe asks if he's denying that Sami paid him off not to follow through on Kristen's orders to kill them. Xander tells him that he can look at his bank account and see nothing. Rafe adds that the investigation is ongoing, so if he's cleared then he will get his gun back. Rafe advises Xander to stay away from Nicole. Xander remarks that he's awfully protective of her. Rafe says she is his friend. Xander responds that he was just asking her for a job, not trying to seduce her. Rafe comments as if he could and then exits the room.
Kate questions why Gabi is here when she tried to break them up and says she doesn't want her here. Jake tells Kate that Gabi is gone so all that matters is she's finally awake. Kate questions why she can't see and why she's in the hospital. Jake explains that Kristen escaped from prison and was masquerading as Susan Banks then when Kate caught on, Kristen attacked her. Jake assures that she's going to be fine. Kate complains that she can't see. Jake encourages that it's temporary. Kate cries that he doesn't know that. Jake says they will wait and hear what Kayla says. Jake questions Kate not remembering Kristen attacking her. Kate confirms that she does not and says she remembers shopping, then coming home to pack for their vacation and that's when she saw Kristen as "Susan". Jake asks if that's the last thing she remembers..
Kristen changes clothes with Susan. Ava shows up in the interrogation room and questions if Kristen is planning on escaping again, arguing that she can't seriously think she'll get away with it. Kristen says it worked before. Ava declares that she won't let her. Kristen reminds Ava that she would be dead if she didn't have Dr. Rolf bring her back to life, so she owes her and it's payback time. Ava says no because Rafe will never forgive her. Kristen tells Ava to just keep her mouth shut then. Kristen tells Ava to step aside. Kristen exits the room while Ava checks on Susan on the floor. Rafe walks in and asks what the hell. Ava tells Rafe that she found her like this and pretends that it is Kristen. Susan then wakes up and questions what's going on, so Rafe realize it's not Kristen but Susan. Rafe questions what the hell happened. Susan remembers coming to forgive Kristen and wish her well on her way to prison. Rafe asks if Ava saw Kristen. Ava claims that she just came in and found Susan on the floor. Rafe rushes out of the room asking if anyone saw Kristen.
Kristen as "Susan" walks outside. She removes her hat and glasses and declares that she is free, but wishes she could say goodbye to Rachel. Kristen adds that it won't be forever as she will be with her daughter again and she will be with Brady again, insisting that he will forgive her because he always does. Kristen declares that Salem has not seen the last of her as she puts the hat and glasses back on.
Nicole goes to see Brady and asks how he's doing. Brady says he's still breathing. Nicole asks if he has time to talk business. Brady says he always has time for her and invites her in. Brady says he'll just tell Marlena to start Rachel's bedtime story without him. Nicole gets a text from Xander, warning her to convince Brady to hire him or else he will tell Sami that she cheated on Eric and her marriage will be over. Brady comes back and asks if she's okay. Nicole says she's fine and he's the one that has been through hell. Brady informs Nicole that he just ended things with Kristen. Nicole encourages that he did the right thing. Brady remains uncertain. Nicole tells him that she's so sorry. Brady thanks Nicole for holding down the fort at Basic Black with Chloe missing. Nicole says it's going okay but she could really use some help which is why she wanted to ask him about a possible hire. Brady asks if it's anyone he knows. Nicole then reveals that it's Xander. Brady tells her that she's out of her damn mind.
Chad goes to the hospital and sees Gabi. Chad wanted to check in on Kate and give Jake a break. Gabi informs Chad that Kate is awake. Chad asks if she's going to be okay then. Gabi responds that she's not so sure about that.
