keeps apologizing. He suggests they might be wrong about Kristen. "Oh
no! Not you too?" she gasps. The shrink explains her latest run-in with

head. It makes the DiMera look innocent. "It's a set up!" blurts the
doctor. She squints until Kristen threatens to call the police. Brady

changed and hopes she will continue 'extending' herself to others. He's
sure she can take the higher ground with Marlena. She agrees not to
call the cops and he promises to protect her. Kristen wants to call his
father though. He begs her not to and she relents, hanging up after

calls Kristen back at Marlena's behest. The DiMera tells him there is
something he needs to know. She covers for Marlena. John hopes they can
all co-exist. The calls ends and Marlena goes along with the cover,
hoping this means they are all keeping their distance from now on.

fist. She wonders if he's having second thoughts but he insists on
going ahead. When she gets off the phone, her daughter starts quizzing
her about Daniel. Meanwhile, Maggie interrupts Daniel eating his
chocolate Cheerios to panic about the treatment he is seeking. Her head
almost falls off when he says he's getting the injection in an hour.
Maggie goes straight to Jenn's and accuses her of pushing Daniel into
this because she feels guilty since she can't love him. "I demand that
you talk him out of this insanity!" says Maggie. They argue bitterly.
The redhead wishes she would butt out of her son's life.
Sister Margaret brings Eric the church's financial papers and tells him
they've had no applicants for church secretary. After the nun leaves,
Nic shows up. She complains. He suggests she get her mind off her
problems by working for him. She laughs in his face. He wants a
secretary, not a nun... but the job includes a room at the convent. Her
jaw drops. She turns the room down but agrees to think about the job.
The priest encourages her to make things right with Daniel. She can't
face him because she still loves him. He pushes her to do it. She heads
straight to the doctor's and apologizes for what happened. Daniel paces
and then accepts her apology. Nic notices the treatment papers and he
explains that if it works, he could be a surgeon again. She's glad Jenn
is still looking out for him. Since he refers to Jenn as 'a friend',
she bustles off to find out what that means. She heads to Jenn's and
starts babbling to Abby, who snaps at her about her mom getting back
with Daniel. Nicole heads to Caffeinated and calls Eric to accept his
job offer and smirk to herself.

runs off. She looks for her check for the school and chats with Father
Tobias. Brady shows up but stays in the hall. Kristen wants to make a
confession. "Would you like to hit the box?" the priest asks. She can
do it face to face. She admits she's afraid she may be making the same
mistake again. Meanwhile, Roman and Kayla arrive at the pub. Hope is
working the tables. Caroline comes out and surprises them. She
convinced the doctor that going home sooner rather than later was a
good idea. Roman sits down with her and they catch up until he has to
run back to work. She mopes about Daniel. Eric shows up and notices
the hospital, Dr. Lewis asks Daniel if he's ready for the treatment.
Daniel stares at his hands. Jenn asks for a moment alone with him. She
wonders if he's having second thoughts. He thinks out loud and she
holds his hands. He decides to plow ahead and calls Lewis back. After
he gets the shot, the doctor tells the doctor that positive affects can
start within the hour. Maxine shows up to hug Daniel and says that all
the nurses want to help him out in surgery as soon as he's better.
Will drops by Caffeinated to see Sonny. He doesn't want to discuss the
Gabi-Nick-Chad mess. Actually, he's horny so they run off to Sonny's.
After sex, Will plays video games. Sonny guesses something is up. Will
won't explain. He made a promise not to say anything. He asks him if
it's true that he loves him. Sonny confirms it. He just wishes he
hadn't told Lucas first. Will says he loves him too. Sonny is still
grumpy about the secret. They head back to the coffee house. Chad is
there and he wants some answers about what's going on with Gabi. Will
runs away. Chad tells Sonny something is going on and urges him to find
out the secret before it's too late.
Nick brings some breakfast to Gabi's room. They apologize to each other
about their fight yesterday and make out. After they hit the sheets, he
admits he's glad she didn't have the abortion. So is she. He wants the
three of them to have a future and be a family together. She reminds
him it's Will's baby. Nick says no one needs to know that. He's sure
that Will will be relieved if he doesn't have to look after the baby.
They get dressed and he urges her to think over his offer. She wants to
discuss it with Will first. Will arrives.
At the pub, Eric notices something is wrong with Caroline. She tells
him there's something she'd rather forget. Caroline admits she hurt
Daniel badly. She brushes off the priest's dandruff as he tries
comforting her. As she fills him in, he helps her do the dishes and
then has to head back to work. Once he's gone, Daniel and Jenn wander
in. Jenn has to take a call. Caroline approaches the doctor and tells
him she wants to make up for what she did to him. He just wants to look
forward right now and insists that he has forgiven her. Jenn returns
and Daniel thanks her for all the hope she's given him. They go back to
the hospital. Lewis gives him a test. Daniel starts shaking again. He's
told the procedure has failed. Meanwhile, Eric returns to the pub.

since her chat with the doctor.
At the rectory, Brady eavesdrops as Kristen confesses to Father Tobias.
She hears Brady make a noise and jumps but doesn't see him. Kristen
continues talking about how she is tempted to make a past mistake
again. She fills the priest in about John and Marlena and how the
shrink violated her privacy. Kristen wanted to strike back, but someone
convinced her not to... someone 'amazing'. Brady's jaw drops as she
talks about her confusing feelings for this 'person'. The priest
randomly lists the ten commandments. She doesn't think she can fight
her feelings. The priest wants details but she can't go on. DiMera runs
out. Brady follows her back to her room. The door is wide open. He
finds her sitting on the bed.
