Until The Cows Come Home.

At the pier, Victor promises Kate that he won't let Viv hurt her. Stefano approaches them and gets snide, demanding to know what's going on. She claims they are just talking about family issues. He assumes she is keeping something from him again. Victor insists that there is nothing going on between them. Viv eavesdrops on the arguing and slips off. Stefano mopes away.

At the pub, Gus is skeptical about Viv's plan for epic revenge. She orders him to step up to the plate and help her. She goes over to Casa DiMera to see Stefano and offers him all the answers he's looking for. Viv spills about being locked in a sarcophagus and how the Kiriakis clan kept her in there, even Kate. This doesn't bother him much but she insists that his wife has made a fool of him by working with Victor behind his back. He doesn't see why he should believe a troublemaker like her. She hints that there is more but leaves as Kate arrives. He tells her that he applauded her part in Viv's ordeal but she should have told him about it. She insists that he's the only man she cares about. He thinks she has a strange way of showing that. Stefano pours a drink and explains that Chad is his son after all. Since he doesn't want to discuss it, she decides to give him time to cool down. "It's a lot worse than you think. Much worse," he grumbles.

Jennifer takes Maggie home and mollycoddles her. Maggie urges her to go Christmas shopping. They get weepy and hug. Jenn agrees to go because she knows Philip and Mel are on their way over. Once she's alone, Maggie sobs and talks to Mickey's picture, hoping she will have the strength to put her ordeal behind her. Brady shows up. He worries about her but she's more worried about the fact that he left Viv to die. Brady justifies what he did and says he would do it again. She thinks he sounds like Victor and lectures him. "You can compliment me until the cows come home, but you're still a disappointment to me," she says. He says that he's realized he's a lot like Victor and that's not such a bad thing. After he storms off, Victor shows up and tells her again that he loves her. She shuts the door in his face. Meanwhile, Brady goes down to the pier and drinks when Viv approaches him. He yells at her to get lost.

Bo is in Carly's hospital room telling her about Hope's latest mishaps in prison. They realize something rotten must be going on in there. Meanwhile, Jenn arrives at the hospital and runs into Ben and Maxine talking about a dying patient who needs a heart transplant. Jenn goes in to see Carly and tells her that she knows the whole Bo and Hope mess was not her fault.

At the prison, the warden tells Lee about her chat with Bo. They're jumpy and Lee is angry when the warden tells her that Hope thinks she has homicidal tendencies. They bring in Charlene and inform her that they are going to transfer her. She's furious and gets threatening. Down in solitary, Hope isn't happy when Keisha tells her that Lee and the warden are super tight. Hope realizes that the warden knows everything. As Keisha eats Hope's fish sticks, the former cop knocks her out and runs out. She's easily caught and brought to the warden's office. Charlene recognizes her as the cop who arrested her and starts pounding on her. Charlene is dragged out. Lee wants to take Hope to the infirmary but Hope doesn't like that idea. The warden mocks her and accuses her of having paranoid delusions. She declares that Hope has lost all rights and will be transferred to a high security prison up north. Hope accuses her of trying to get rid of her. The warden gleefully talks about what a paranoid Hope is. The ex-cop is dragged off to be transferred with Charlene. Lee thinks this is a bad idea. Ben calls the warden and tells her that he needs a heart quick. She tells him she can get him one by tomorrow. After she hangs up, Lee starts to panic but the warden assures her that Hope will be handcuffed when they send her off and Charlene won't be.

Steph is bursting to explain. When she starts, he gets beeped off to work so they agree to meet up later. She heads to the pub to confront her grandma again but Caroline doesn't like her 'getting fresh' like this. She claims that Bo and Roman would never let her skate out of jail if the truth came out.

I'm The Nice Guy.

She reminds him that she has cards of her own and claims she only used his cards because she like being a DiMera. He follows her out to the garden and lectures her for getting EJ shot. Kate says that she was hardly the only reason for that. She reminds him that he knew what she was like before they got married and she refuses to change for anyone. They admit that they've made each other happy, but she doesn't think they can live together if he keeps punishing her. He refuses to compromise for her so she accuses him of being addicted to revenge and decides it is best for her to go. "I wish things could have gone differently," she says, kissing him goodbye.

At the mansion, Brady and Victor joke about Viv coming after them for revenge. Victor assures him he will take care of Viv. He doesn't actually have a plan though so he wants to set up a meeting to create one. Victor worries that they won't be able to rely on Kate or Nicole. Brady assures him that they can trust Nicole.

He reminds her that if Sami is going to be seeing Syd, she won't be. "I'm the nice guy," he says, telling her to stop mewling. She wonders why he seems determined to make her suffer.
