Across the square, Maggie fumes to Victor about all of this
and worries about Abe and Lexi. She putters away to see them. Lexi runs over to
her family. "How dare you!" she says. EJ makes excuses but his sister is sure
this is personal. Elvis doesn't see the harm in trying to elevate the family
name. "If you play dirty, you'll have to answer to me," she warns him. She walks
off. Stefano chuckles that she's more of a DiMera than she'll ever admit. The
press run past and corner Nicole. They start asking her about EJ saving her life
the other day. Elvis manages to get rid of them. His wife swats him and says she
won't be used for publicity. She demands to know why he's really running. He
wants his kids to be proud of him. Although he can't change, he can change the
way people see him. Stefano joins them and gets snarky with Nicole. She wishes

dance for her. They decide to chat with Maggie about why Alice would stash money
away. The redhead says Alice had no secrets. Brady interrupts to take Maggie
away. When she joins Victor, he has the lights dimmed and a marriage proposal
projected on the wall. She tears up. Being with her makes him feel like a
teenager again and he doesn't want to lose that. He pops the questions and whips
out a ring. "You didn't have to try so hard," she says.

and Marlena sit in the corner. He tells her to prepare herself for what's
coming. John gathers Abe and Roman around to inform them that something very
serious could be going down tonight. Rafe and Tim approach. They arrest John for
embezzlement, securities fraud and misappropriation of pension funds. Out by the
gate, Jack and his sister sit on a bench and she asks for his story. He gives
her the lengthy version. She's just happy he's home safe and can't imagine what
he went through. Adrienne's sure that this changes everything. Jack doesn't
think he can talk to Jenn while she's so hurt. His sister doesn't let him off
and says that he almost seemed to hurt his family deliberately. He regrets
coming back and thinks he should leave. She tells him to go to his wife, tell
her everything and beg for forgiveness. Jack hugs her and runs off.
At home, Jenn cries to Daniel about Jack coming back. He promises to be with her
always but wonders if she still has feelings for Jack. She feels sad, confused
and angry. "Do you still love him?" he asks. Jenn tells Daniel that she wants to
spend the rest of her days with him. Jack is always either drama or hi-jinx and
she doesn't want that. She just wants to know why he's still hurting her. As
they embrace, Jack arrives at the door.
