The Salem Moose.

and Chad are stalking Anne in the square. He doesn't know why they are
bothering to help Cam. Anne shows up and suggests that they discuss
what happened in Chicago. She thanks them and apologizes for all of the
acrimony. Anne just wants a fresh start. Abby's baffled. Anne jogs off.
They're not sure what to make of that. Chad tells Abby that he's glad
they've been spending time together so she could see he's not a total
jerk. She says he's been useful. He starts to run his mouth and tries
getting her to admit they've had some laughs.
Theo and Abe drop by the hospital to see Cameron. The kid goes off for
his therapy. Abe asks the doctor why he hasn't been making time for
Theo lately. Cam is jumpy. Abe wants his son to have stability and a
family member who isn't a DiMera. He demands to know what's really
going on with him. Cam explains that he's been working an 80 hour week
to pay off his loans. Abe's concerned and Cameron gets emo. "We're not
family. Theo is my family," Cam snaps. The doctor plods off. Maxine has
been watching. She bustles over to chat with Abe. The nurse tells him
that Cameron is trying too hard. Abby and Chad arrive at the hospital.
She spots Cam and apologizes again for last night. He tells her to put
him out of her mind forever. After he storms off, Anne walks by with a
smile. Abby asks Maxine if she trusts Anne. The nurse doesn't. Deveraux
asks her to keep an eye on Milbauer because she's gunning for Cam. Abby
goes down the hall to use a printer. She bumps into Cam again and he
apologizes for being an idiot. He asks for another chance and they
kiss. That's just a fantasy though. In reality, Maxine calls her after
discovering that Anne is still on Cameron's trail.
Sweaty Vargas joins Nicole in the rectory to discuss granola bars and
paperwork. He fetches her some food and helps her merge her mail. They
eat fried chicken and flirt. He pulls out a cream donut, covers it in
whip cream and then licks it off her fingers. They climb on the desk.
At Casa DiMera, Maggie tells Brady about the days of the Salem Moose.
She realized back then how deep John's feelings for Kristen were. He
starts snapping so she heads out. Kristen calls him and they chat about
the missing envelope. She surmises it must be at Caffeinated.
Meanwhile, John wanders around and thinks of his past with Kristen.
Brady calls him and they meet up. Brady is miffed. He accuses him of
being jealous of his own son. John crinkles his forehead. Brady accuses
him of having feelings for his fiancee and orders him to stay away.
In Caffeinated, Ciara opens the envelope and finds the picture of
Kristen. She shoves it in her bag when her mom comes over. The little
girl claims she has a surprise for her dad in the bag. Hope has some
news: Bo is coming back soon. They go off to tell Caroline. Kristen
comes in looking for the envelope. The waitress says she saw it in the
trash. The DiMera jumps in the dumpster out back. The waitress comes
out and says the trash the envelope was in already went to the dump.
Kristen's relieved that it must have been destroyed. She bumps into
Maggie back in Caffeinated. They chat about Victor and Maggie
reminisces about the Salem Moose and when John first fell for her.
Kristen hurries off. Maggie bumps into John in the square moments later
and asks him what he was trying to do by sending Kristen the jersey. He
refuses to discuss this and walks away. Meanwhile, Ciara is eating
chowder at the pub when she takes out the envelope to look at the
picture again. Brady and Kristen walk in. Ciara recognizes her.

the pub, Ciara recognizes Kristen as the woman in the photo she found.
She approaches her and Brady across the room. The couple runs off
before she makes it to their table. Kristen and Brady head back to her
room to rip off their clothes. After sex, he gives her some bling. She
tells him he's a good man. Kristen assures him he doesn't have to worry
about his father. "We're going to make it," he tells her.
Daniel and Parker are with the babysitter in the square. Jenn shows up.
The sitter bustles off. Jenn pulls out a toy train for the kid. They
kiss and gab about how they are finally where they belong and then
putter over to the Horton house. She has more train accessories for the
'little dude'. Maggie shows up to apologize. Daniel takes his son away
for a cookie break. The women discuss how people always think Hortons
are saints. Jenn explains she would have left Salem behind for Daniel's
sake. "Bless your heart," coos Maggie. Jenn kicks herself for using
Jack's memory in all of this but the redhead is sure he would have
understood. Daniel returns. Jenn has to get to the hospital to meet
with Seth about getting her job back. Maggie hangs out with her son and
Cameron stops by Caffeinated where Chad and Theo are playing
videogames. The three of them hang out. Abe pops up. Cam apologizes for
snapping at him earlier. Meanwhile, Maxine calls Abby into the
hospital. They worry about Anne, sure that she has it in for Cameron.
Abby tells the nurse about the stripping. Seth Burns, the hospital
administrator, arrives. Anne gabs with him. Abby follows the two of
them around. Maxine joins her and they eavesdrop on Anne telling Seth
that Cam is a stripper and news of that could be bad for the hospital's
reputation. Seth is skeptical. She suggests that they catch him in the
act. The nurse and Deveraux wonder how to stop Milbauer. Jenn shows up
and her daughter asks for help. They plan. Abby calls the club in
Chicago to speak to 'Apollo'. The manager tells her to come in person
and hangs up. Anne and Mr Burns arrive at the club and take seats near
the stage. Jenn, Abby and Maxine bustle in and start teasing Anne,
suggesting that she comes there all the time. The curtain goes up and
Anne is shocked by what she sees.
In the rectory, Nicole starts undoing Vargas' belt as they make out on
the desk. Eric walks in on them and slams the door. Vargas leaps off
her and starts apologizing. The priest sends him out. Nic barks at
Eric, calling him a hypocrite. She tells him he pushed her and Vargas
together. He lectures her for violating the trust he placed in her. Nic
accuses him of not letting her be a woman. The priest reminds her they
are on hallowed ground. She heads for the door. He grabs her. After
they stare into each other's eyes, she declares she's quitting and
storms out. She goes up to her room and calls Vargas in. He's worried
about upsetting the priest but she tries to tempt him. They make out on
her bed. Once they are naked, she blurts out, "I want you so much
Eric!" That's a turn off for Vargas. Back in the office, Eric is
tearing his desk apart when Father Matt enters. The young priest asks
him to hear his confession. Eric confesses that he gave in to rage and
judgement. Father Matt senses there is more and pushes him to say it
out loud. He thinks there may be more than friendship between Eric and

Chicago, Anne, Jenn, Abby and Mr. Burns are all at the strip club
waiting for Cam to come on. When the curtain goes up, Daniel appears on
stage, dressed as cowboy. Kristen, Caroline and Sami arrive. They start
shoving bills down the doctor's pants. Mr. Burns wants to leave.
Kristen starts chatting with him about DiMera funding. Anne is fuming
and tells Jenn and Abby that their plan won't work. Sami and Caroline
get filled in about what's going on by Jenn. Brady comes up on stage
next. Sami and Kristen snark at each other and the DiMera wonders if
her brother is backstage, waiting to go on. Anne continues trying to
stop Burns from leaving. Rafe comes out next. Sami looks really
uncomfortable. Kristen teases her. All three men go on stage and are
joined by Cameron. Once the dancing is over, the ladies debate about
what Burns will do. Cameron comes out and tells Abby they have one more
move. He and Daniel tell Burns that the performance was a fundraiser
for the hospital. Burns says that's great. Anne is flabbergasted. Burns
leaves and Anne trails after. Cam thanks all of his friends. Abby
babbles to him until he takes her hand and leads her backstage. She
rambles about how she needed to do something to help. He kisses and
thanks her. The doctor thinks she's amazing. Meanwhile, Rafe and Sami
have some awkward small talk. Kristen comes over and tells him that
Sami is going to be her sister-in-law soon. She tells Brady next. He
leads his lady away. Sami apologizes for Rafe finding out about her
engagement like this. He's only ever wanted her to be happy. She
expected him to tell her she was stupid and self-destructive. "See? You
already know it. I don't have to say a thing," Rafe points out.
In the rectory, Father Matt asks Eric if there's more than friendship
between he and Nicole. Eric admits it but says nothing has happened
between them. He confesses that he loves her... but insists he's not in
love with her. The Brady tells him that men keep breaking her heart and
she keeps ruining every chance she has at happiness. He tells him about
the 'inappropriate actions' Nic was committing in his office. Father
Matt reminds him that they serve God, they don't play God. He needs to
start thinking about Nicole like she's just another parishioner.
Vargas is on top of Nicole in her bed. "I want you so much Eric!" she
blurts out. That turns him off for a second. She's in denial. He says
that as long as she doesn't talk, they can get back to sex. After he
admits it's obvious that she has the hots for the priest, she tells him
he's a buzzkill and gets out of bed. She worries he'll tell Eric. He
gets snide and leaves. When she walks out, she bumps into Father Matt
on the street. She tells him that she quit. He thinks she should be
talking to Father Eric. Back at the rectory, Vargas apologizes to Eric
and assures him that nothing will happen between him and Nicole. After
he leaves, Eric starts praying. Nicole looks in but doesn't interrupt.

her hotel room, Nicole thinks of calling Eric as she recalls everything
that's happened. Down in the rectory, Father Eric tells Vargas that
they still aren't exactly 'cool'. The priest says Vargas can do what he
wants in his personal life, but not in his office. He sends Vargas
away. Nic calls the priest. He's snippy. She wants her stuff. He tells
her she can come by while he's at his meeting and hangs up. She heads
to the pub and bumps into Vargas. He's snarky and stomps off. Abe sees
this and questions her about it. If Vargas is misbehaving, he needs to
tell the prison outreach program. Nic says he didn't do anything wrong.
She asks Abe for some advice. After she lost her mom and both of her
babies, she felt lost and didn't care about finding herslef again. Abe
admits he often feels the same thing since he lost Lexi. He tells her
to let things unfold naturally and make good decisions.
John sits in Caffeinated smiling smugly to himself and hoping 'crazy K'
takes the bait he left for her. Over at Casa DiMera, Kristen teases
Brady about his stripping. He notices she hasn't thrown away the jersey
and he's not happy about it. She admits it has memories for her. They
ponder what his father's motives in giving it to her was and then start
making out. Brady is impressed by the fact that they get along so well
in bed and everywhere else. She has to go to work. He has errands to
run and heads out. Kristen calls John and orders him to meet her at the
office. When they both get there, she tells him the trouble he's been
causing is going to end today. She chucks the jersey at him. They
bicker and she refuses to let him destroy her life with Brady. He
thinks they need to put all of their cards on the table. She orders him
out. He grabs her flailing arms and pulls her close.
Hope takes Ciara out for breakfast at Mandalay. Ciara has a question
about Brady and his girlfriend. She claims she knows something about
Kristen. Hope gives her a lecture about gossip. Her daughter is
confused. She's about to show her the envelope when Bo calls to say
he's not going to be back for dinner. Ciara is furious and starts
calling her mom a liar. Brady arrives and calms her down. He tells the
little girl that his daddy was away a lot when he was a kid too but
he's sure Bo loves her and wants to be with her. "Do you see your daddy
now?" she asks. That's awkward. She teases him about his girlfriend and
explains that she knows something about her.
Jenn and Daniel lounge in bed and talk about being a team. She still
insists on going to the hospital to see Mr. Burns alone. They stop by
the rectory and chat to Eric. Jenn runs off. The doctor tells the
priest how Nicole helped him keep his son when Chloe went off the deep
end. He thanks Eric for looking out for Nic. Later, Nicole drops by to
pack up her desk. Eric tells her that he doesn't want her to quit. He
explains what Daniel and Jenn told him. She wonders if he's sure he
really wants her to stay. He is. "I want to be friends forever," she
says. They shake hands. Meanwhile, Jenn meets with Mr. Burns at the
hospital. She asks for her job back... even though she screwed up big
time. He explains a lot of people on staff want her back so he's okay
with it. He wanders off and she runs into Maxine's arms. As they hug,
Anne walks in and gags. Jenn has to stop Maxine from tearing Anne's
head off. Anne laughs at the nurse. Jenn tells Anne that they should
all start over again. They begin arguing. Jenn says she must be stupid
if she thought a plot with Chloe would work. The Horton orders her to
get her stuff out of her office and stay out of her way. She heads to
the mansion to see Daniel and Parker. Maxine already called him to
gossip. He has a cupcake ready for her.

can show him the photo. Ciara has a meltdown over them talking about
her like she's not there. Brady goes, and Hope reassures Ciara about
In her room, Kristen tells John to take the damn jersey and go. He
pulls her close and she orders him out again. He grins. He asks if she
remembers the day he gave her the jersey - it was the day he realized
he was falling in love with her. He thinks she can become that woman
again. She says that woman's dead. "You killed her." Brady arrives and
rants at John about playing mind games. John says Kristen called him.
Brady grabs John. Kristen intervenes and sends John out with the
jersey. Brady's upset that John's clearly not over her. He says if that
intrigues her, they're finished. Kristen starts ripping Brady's clothes

find photos and says it was for charity. Katie ponies up $500 for the
cause - and to see his act. Later, they cuddle in bed and Kate regrets
mentioning Sami and sounding insecure. They kiss.

there - he's concerned how it will be for the baby. Adrienne tells him

careful of Nick, and asks what he needs to know.
Nick and Gabi chat with Hope at the pub. She mentions Will and Sonny
caring for their daughter. Nick asks if she really thinks that's an
ideal life for a little girl. Gabi and Hope ask what he means. Hope
