The Next Victim.
Eric brings Ciara to the pub. She starts yapping to Brady about Kristen and asks why they aren't getting married anymore. The priest sends her off for cookies and apologizes. He tells him that Kristen will be at the reception. Brady assures him it's no big deal. "I pity whoever she picks to be her next victim," he adds. Meanwhile, Nicole walks in on Kristen having a fit in the rectory. After lecturing her, she notices that there are sex sounds coming out of the purse Kristen hurled at the wall. The DiMera grabs her bag. There is much hollering and name calling. A nun comes in with a ticket to the reception for Kristen. Nic's gobsmacked and asks her not to ruin the event for Eric and his family. The priest pops up and the DiMera heads out. Nicole warns him about Kristen again. "I like to think of you as my guardian angel," he says.

At the hospital, Rafe demands to know why Sami shot him. His machines beep and Kayla tries getting him to relax. Abe takes Kate into the corridor. She worries to Maxine. The nurse assures her that she has been nothing but good for Rafe and everything will work out. Kayla joins them and explains that she thinks Rafe still can't differentiate between dreams and reality. They worry about how bad his short term memory might be. Since he might not recall his affair with Kate, she decides to call in someone else. Meanwhile, Nick and Gabi meet at Caffeinated. They discuss the annulment and he makes sure she is okay with money and everything. She's sorry that he must be feeling left out of Arianna's life.

He heads over to the rectory with Eric's toxicology report. They send Nicole away. The doctor explains that there are no traces of a poison or virus. It's like someone didn't want it found and must have used a masking agent. "You were deliberately poisoned," Daniel suggests.

Maggie drops by the Horton house to apologize to Jenn for being so nosy. Then she tells Jenn that she's a fool for letting JJ ruin her love life.

He wonders if she wants a quickie or closure. Kristen tells him he's all wrong about her. She chose him over revenge and loved him more than anything in the world but he threw her away. He's heard all of this before. The DiMera points out that John can confirm what she's saying. "I chose you," she repeats. She runs off. He stares.

Theresa takes a walk through Salem. "This whole place is one major suck," she observes.

His father admits that Kristen backed out of the lovemaking. "She was dead set on marrying you kid," John says. His son shows him out. "An attack of conscience at the last second doesn't undo a damn thing kid," John says as he leaves. Brady is shocked to admit to himself that Kristen really loved him... but does she still?

In her office, Jenn nags Theresa about being useless. Jenn wishes she would show more initiative. Theresa doesn't want to waste her youth under compact fluorescents. They bicker. Jenn suspects she's trying to get fired and won't make it easy for her. Theresa calms down. She says everyone is just 'up in her grill' and that's made her uptight. She complains about having to deliver a gift. Her boss sends her off to do it. Theresa drops by the rectory to give Eric a gift from her mom. It's Grandpa Shawn's Bible.
