Abe tells Paulina that they make a pretty good team. They are interrupted by Paulina getting a text message from the app of her security alarm, alerting to her that her door is open. Paulina decides she better go check it out but she's sorry to skip out on their walk. Abe says there will be another time. Paulina says bye to the twins and says she has to get home to make sure a stranger isn't going through her personal things.
Chanel uncovers the large paper in Paulina's folder marked as Plans for the Horton Town Square. Chanel declares that it doesn't make sense and wonders what her mom is up to.
Dr. Snyder asks Xander what brings him in to the hospital today. Xander responds that he has a nasty pain in his neck and a friend of his told him that Dr. Snyder is the guy to see if he wants to make it go away. Dr. Snyder asks who his friend is. Xander informs him that it is Gwen.
Kayla goes to see Gwen at home and says she wants to talk about Dr. Snyder. Gwen confirms that he was her physician after her accident. Kayla questions him still treating her. Gwen says there is follow up visits and asks why. Kayla calls it a rather delicate matter. Gwen asks to know what is going on.
Nicole sits at Julie's Place and pulls out her fake Salem Inn receipt as she thinks back to showing it to Sami as proof that she did not sleep with Xander. Nicole declares that Sami won't give up until she proves that she cheated on Eric.
Lucas goes to see Sami, who questions what took him so long. Sami tells Lucas that she needs his help desperately and it's a matter of life and death. Lucas asks how he can help. Sami tells him to take his shirt off. Lucas jokes that he thought they weren't doing that anymore. Sami instructs Lucas to wear a wire which he questions. Sami declares that Nicole cheated on Eric with Xander and Lucas is going to help her prove it.
Nicole is typing an e-mail to Eric, saying she hates to do this but she hasn't been able to reach him by phone. Nicole types that she will just cut to the chase that she slept with Xander and she's so sorry.
Dr Snyder remarks to Xander that Gwen is a lovely young woman. Xander questions that and calls her obnoxious and annoying with a definite attitude problem. Dr. Snyder thought he said Gwen was his friend and questions what exactly is going on here.
Kayla informs Gwen that someone relayed some disturbing news involving her and Dr. Snyder so as chief of staff, she's concerned about how a member of her staff might be treating her. Gwen asks what this person said. Kayla says that there was a possibility that Dr. Snyder was threatening her. Gwen questions what the hell Xander told her. Kayla questions what Xander has to do with it.
Xander tells Dr. Snyder that he misspoke, as Gwen is the daughter of his friend. Dr. Snyder questions Gwen recommending him to Xander. Xander claims that Gwen said he gave her excellent care after her accident and gave her some really strong painkillers. Dr. Snyder acknowledges that she was in a great deal of pain. Xander remarks that would explain why Gwen has a great big bag of them but it doesn't explain why Dr. Snyder is making her deliver them to other people.
Nicole can't believe she's going to send the e-mail to Eric but Abe arrives with the twins so Nicole shuts her laptop before sending it. Nicole is glad to finally meet Abe's grandchildren. Abe notes that it's been awhile and asks how she's been. Abe mentions that Roman told him that Eric extended his stay in Africa which Nicole confirms. Abe points out that Eric has been gone a long time. Nicole notes that it's been 8 months and how she and Holly miss him like crazy. Nicole knows Eric is needed there but cries that she needs him here too. Nicole admits that she's gotten angry and resentful that he chose to stay there so long which brings her a huge guilt. Abe questions why she feels guilty.
Lucas thought Sami said this was a matter of life and death. Sami argues that Eric deserves to know that his wife is a lying, cheating skank. Lucas argues that Sami only saw Nicole go in to the Salem Inn with Xander, who she hates, which is not hard evidence so he thinks she should let it go. Sami insists that she's going to get proof if Lucas helps her. Lucas refuses to help and doesn't want to hear her idea. Sami wants Lucas to go to Nicole while wearing the wire and convince her that they had a huge fight and that Sami is obsessing over the idea that Nicole had an affair with Xander. Sami instructs Lucas to give Nicole the "Lucas eyes" to make her want to confess everything to him by convincing her that he is on her side, and then she'll have the whole thing on tape. Lucas tells Sami that it's never going to work. Sami insists but Lucas says she has lost her mind and refuses to help.
Paulina goes home and questions what Chanel is doing there. Chanel says Lani gave her the address so she came to show her ideas for the bakery. Paulina questions Chanel snooping. Chanel argues that it was just lying there, waiting to be read, and asks what the big deal is since she's going to be one of the tenants. Chanel thought Paulina would be happy that she's taking an interest, but she's confused because she thought Paulina was combining the buildings to create an indoor marketplace for small businesses. Paulina claims that she is. Chanel points out that the blueprints look like they are for one big building so she questions what's up with that. Paulina claims that it's not for the town square, but a project back in Miami, so her assistant must have put it in the wrong folder. Paulina congratulates Chanel on Abe approving her application for the bakery. Chanel doesn't think Paulina thinks she can do it but swears she's never wanted anything more in her life. Paulina talks about hearing that before. Chanel insists this is different. Paulina talks about how it will be long hours and hard work. Chanel shows her the folder of ideas she has. Paulina acknowledges that she put a lot of thought in this. Chanel declares that nothing is going to stop her from making her dreams come true.
Nicole tells Abe that she feels guilty because Eric is off on a selfless mission, helping people in need while she's here complaining about how hard it is for her. Abe understands Nicole is lonely, sad, and frustrated. Abe asks if she has talked to Eric about how she feels. Nicole says she made it loud and clear the last time they spoke, but he still didn't listen. Nicole doesn't know how much longer she can live like this. Abe asks where that leaves her marriage. Nicole reveals that she was going to send Eric an e-mail and if she does, she's pretty sure it will be the end of their marriage.
Sami questions why Lucas is being so difficult. Lucas tells her that he's not doing this anymore, no more schemes and bad ideas. Lucas brings up Sami having him fake a brain tumor last time. Sami jokes that he could try that with Nicole. Lucas wants to leave but Sami pleads with him, saying she has to protect her brother because he deserves to know that his wife cheated on him. Lucas argues that Sami doesn't know that for sure. Sami argues that she is getting close to proving it and informs Lucas that the manager at the Salem Inn told her that Nicole did not book a room under her own name, so she must have been in Xander's room. Sami adds that when she busted her on it, she produced a receipt claiming that she charged the room to Basic Black. Lucas says that would explain it but Sami assures the receipt is fake, just like she is. Lucas tells her to stop obsessing over this. Sami complains that Nicole broke her vows, cheated on her husband, and shouldn't get away with it. Lucas asks what this is really about and if it's because Nicole cheated on Eric, or because Sami cheated on EJ.
Gwen tells Kayla that she's sorry that she misunderstood and questions her not talking to Xander. Kayla confirms that and reveals this information came from someone who witnessed interaction between her and Dr. Snyder and thought it seemed tense or possibly threatening. Gwen realizes it was Tripp. Kayla confirms that Tripp thought Gwen seemed upset and he was concerned about her. Kayla tells Gwen that if Dr. Snyder is doing anything to make her uncomfortable, she can tell her, and she will make sure he never bothers her again.
Dr. Snyder tells Xander that he would never suggest a person share their prescribed medication with anyone. Xander tells him to save the innocent act and accuses him of pushing pills while forcing Gwen to be his drug mule. Dr. Snyder laughs it off and calls that ridiculous. Xander tells Dr. Snyder that he's not a cop so he doesn't give a damn if he's running an illegal drug ring out of this hospital. Xander warns him to just leave Gwen out of it. Dr. Snyder claims he's not forcing Gwen to do anything as they have a mutually beneficial arrangement where she runs errands for him and he, in turn, keeps her secret about her miscarriage. Xander questions what secret about her miscarriage.
Gwen tells Kayla that it's kind of her to be concerned, but she thinks Tripp misread the situation. Gwen claims she was only upset because talking about losing her baby is still quite difficult. Kayla asks if Dr. Snyder did anything inappropriate. Gwen admits he doesn't have the best bedside manner but claims she has no complaints. Kayla says she will head back to the hospital then. Gwen appreciates Kayla reaching out, knowing that she is not her favorite person considering how close Kayla is with Abigail. Gwen continues to blame Abigail for losing her baby. Kayla tells Gwen to come to her if she ever feels mistreated at the hospital. Gwen thanks her and apologizes for snapping. Kayla stops and asks why Gwen thought she was talking about Xander before. Gwen responds that Xander is always stirring up trouble and poking his nose where it doesn't belong.
Dr. Snyder guesses Gwen hasn't told Xander the whole story. Xander asks him to enlighten him then. Dr. Snyder brings up doctor-patient confidentiality. Xander doesn't think ethics are high on his list of priorities. Dr. Snyder declares that they are done here. Xander points out that he hasn't fixed his problem. Dr. Snyder tells Xander to mind his own business. Xander responds that Gwen is his business since she is the daughter of his best friend. Xander warns that if he messes with Gwen, he messes with him. Dr. Snyder responds that Xander does not intimidate him. Xander then grabs him and demands that he leave Gwen alone, or else he will be the one in serious need of painkillers. Xander then walks out of the room.
Abe asks if Nicole wants her marriage to be over. Nicole says of course not, but there is truths in the e-mail that not even a saint like Eric could get past. Abe doubts that and says what Nicole and Eric have been through would have torn most couples apart, but their love just got stronger. Abe talk about celebrating that on their wedding day. Nicole calls that a perfect day until Sami showed up. Nicole says it seemed they were finally going to live the life they dreamed of, but then a few months later Eric was gone.
Sami asks Lucas what kind of question that is. Lucas points out that Nicole cheated on Eric maybe once, but Sami cheated on EJ twice with him, so maybe it's about herself and not Nicole. Sami argues that he's changing the subject. Lucas argues that she's avoiding the subject. Lucas accuses her of obsessing over Nicole's infidelity so that she doesn't have to deal with her own. Sami calls that ridiculous. Lucas thinks she is projecting and reads her the definition of that. Sami then breaks down and admits that he's right. Sami cries that she hates what she did to EJ and it's just easier to hate Nicole instead. Sami adds that she can't even look at herself in the mirror and asks what she's going to do when she goes home since EJ knows her so well that he will take one look at her and know exactly what she did. Sami points out that even Rafe could tell she was hiding something. Lucas suggests Sami just be honest with EJ. Sami worries that he would never forgive her. Lucas points out that it's as much EJ's fault as it is hers, since she felt lonely and confused without comfort in her life. Sami says that might explain the first time they hooked up but brings up the second. Lucas notes that their lives were in danger and they were going to die. Sami cries that she loves EJ so she doesn't understand how she could hurt him like this. Lucas suggests that maybe Sami is also in love with him.
After Kayla leaves, Gwen sits down frustrated. Gwen then gets a call from Dr. Snyder. She answers, asking what he wants as she's already delivered this week's package. Dr. Snyder warns her to tell her friend to stop threatening him, or his next call will be to her dad. Gwen questions what he's talking about. Dr. Snyder tells her it was Xander. Xander then comes home. Gwen tells Dr. Snyder that she will take care of it and hangs up. Gwen then asks Xander what the hell he did.
Chanel asks Paulina what she thinks of her ideas. Paulina admits she has some great ideas and she thinks she's very talented. Chanel wants her to be excited for her. Paulina is worried about her taking on such a huge project by herself. Chanel points out that one of her besties is going to be her right hand woman. Paulina notes that working with a friend can be tricky. Chanel re-assures her, so Paulina says it's absolutely wonderful. Chanel thinks they should have something from their family like grandma's sweet potato pie and suggests they make one now. Paulina agrees so Chanel says she will go to the store and be right back. Chanel kisses her on the cheek and then exits.
Nicole tells Abe that it's been less than a year and her marriage is already falling apart, so she's starting to think maybe marriage is not for her. Nicole is in awe of people who can make a marriage last forever, like Abe and Lexie did. Abe admits it wasn't always smooth sailing since Stefano was a huge problem. Nicole notes that her brother Brandon was as well. Nicole asks Abe how he got past Lexie's infidelity. Abe admits it wasn't easy as his pride was hurt and their trust was broken, so he almost walked away. Abe brings up that Lexie was the love of his life and there was nobody else that he wanted to be with more. Nicole asks if he thinks it would've been better if he didn't know about her affair. Abe says he doesn't and says they worked together to get past it, so if Lexie had kept it a secret then that lie would've destroyed their marriage...
Sami questions Lucas thinking she's in love with him. Lucas points out that they do have that chemistry that has never gone away. Sami tells Lucas that she is married to EJ. Lucas talks about Sami standing by EJ this whole time, but all he does is push her away and shut her down. Sami cries that she has to believe EJ will come around. Lucas asks what if he doesn't. Lucas knows she doesn't like to give up, but it takes two to make a marriage work, and right now he sees her alone in her marriage. Sami asks what he's saying. Lucas thinks that he and Sami should give things another shot.
Kayla goes back to work at the hospital. Dr. Snyder walks by so Kayla asks for a word with him. Kayla says she's trying to find a patient of his but she can't seem to find the file. Dr. Snyder asks which one. Kayla tells him it's Gwen so Dr. Snyder asks why. Kayla explains that she is her husband's niece, so she told him that she would pay special attention to her. Dr. Snyder assures that Gwen has received the best possible care. Kayla still wants to see her file and since she is Chief of Staff, she is entitled to that. Dr. Snyder doesn't think there is anything out of the ordinary to see there. Kayla asks if he has a problem with her looking at Gwen's file.
Xander tells Gwen that he just did her a huge favor by threatening Dr. Snyder. Gwen informs him that Dr. Snyder just called her and she heard lots of anger in his voice, which is a problem because he is blackmailing her. Gwen questions how Xander even knew it was him. Xander admits he was eavesdropping then he went to the hospital to confront him and told him to back off. Gwen tells him that it didn't work. Xander offers to pay him another visit but Gwen says no. Gwen warns that if Xander threatens him, he will destroy her life. Xander asks if it's because of what he knows about her miscarriage, which stops her from leaving the room.
Chanel returns to Paulina with food to make the pies and aprons for them to wear. Chanel thanks Paulina for pushing her to get her act together. She talks about Paulina cutting off her credit cards, but she sees now that she needed some tough love or else she would never be pursuing her dream of opening a bakery. Chanel declares that for the first time in her life, she knows exactly what she wants and it's all thanks to Paulina. Paulina then tells Chanel that there is something she has to tell her.
Sami questions Lucas wanting to get back together. Lucas says he hasn't really thought about it until now, but since she has been back in town, he thinks they have been getting along pretty good. Sami accuses Lucas of being in love with her. Lucas argues that they have been in love with each other since they were kids and now they are the best versions of themselves. They argue about the things they have done recently. Lucas says this is magic that he has with her and he wants it again. Sami reminds him that she is married and talks about what she and EJ had. Lucas points out that Sami said what she had as in past tense, while he is here now. Lucas says he is her present and declares that he is all in if she is.
Dr. Snyder tells Kayla that he has no problem with her accessing Gwen's records but says the records are not yet in the system because he hand writes everything. He says he'll make sure the records are uploaded as soon as possible and walks away.
Gwen warns Xander to never bring up her miscarriage ever again. Xander understands it's a touchy subject. Gwen calls him heartless and says he has no idea what it's like to lose a child. Xander says that's true but he did help Sarah raise a baby for a year before they had to give her up. Xander knows it's not the same but he can imagine a little bit of the pain she must be going through. Xander says that Dr. Snyder is making it worse, so if she decides she does want some help then she can just let him know. Xander then exits the room.
Chanel asks Paulina what it is. Paulina claims she just wanted to say that she's very proud of her and she knows that her and her bakery will be the biggest thing to hit Salem. Chanel feels like she can do anything when Paulina believes in her. They then go to the kitchen to make pies.
Nicole goes to send her e-mail to Eric, but stops and cries that she can't lose Eric, so she instead clicks save to drafts instead of send.
Lucas tells Sami that they have a second chance here. Sami jokes that it's more like a sixth or seventh chance. Lucas thinks what they have is amazing and he would love to get it back. Lucas jokes that he's giving her the Lucas eyes and asks if it's working. Sami reminds him that they don't do happily ever after very well. Lucas doesn't care as long as he's with her and asks what she says. They are interrupted by a knock at the door. Lucas suggests it's probably Rafe again like last time. Sami goes to answer it and is shocked to see it is EJ DiMera (now played by Dan Feuerriegel) at the door, having returned to Salem.
