Allie questions Tripp about Chanel and Johnny almost having sex, asking when Chanel told Tripp that. Tripp tells her it was when he ran in to her in the town square earlier. Allie argues that it’s a very private thing to tell a guy that she barely knows. Tripp agrees but thinks that Chanel was just really excited as she seems very in to Johnny.
Chanel asks if Johnny believes her now that she’s over Allie. Johnny calls it a start but thinks he’ll need more convincing so they continue kissing.
Philip is at the Brady Pub when he gets a call from Chloe. Philip asks how New York is. Chloe reveals that she’s not there yet because the DiMera Jet had some type of mechanical problem mid-flight. Chloe says she’s fine but she and Brady are stranded in the middle of nowhere.
Shawn finishes a call with Claire as Ben and Ciara enter. Ciara asks how Claire is. Shawn says she’s good and loving her job in South Africa. Ciara asks if Claire said anything about Theo. Shawn assures that he’s doing alright. Shawn asks what Ciara and Ben are doing here. Ciara then informs Shawn that she and Ben are leaving Salem. Shawn questions them leaving town right after Claire. Ciara clarifies that they aren’t leaving permanently. Shawn says she should’ve said vacation then instead of leaving town. Ciara apologizes. Shawn says he was just getting used to having her back. Shawn asks what it is. Ben brings up that they never had a real honeymoon, so they are going to take off for a little while.
Philip asks Chloe where they are. Chloe says they are on a private air strip near Wilkes-Barre and they are stranded until they fix the jet. Philip calls it a nightmare. Chloe says she had to tell Parker she won’t be seeing him tonight and they had to reschedule their meeting. Philip knew this trip was a bad idea and hopes that Brady is taking charge to get her out of there as soon as possible. Chloe assures that it’s not Brady’s fault. Chloe mentions staying at a motel. Philip gets upset and questions her and Brady staying in a motel. Chloe assures that it’s just for tonight. Philip says it better be and tells her to call him when she gets to New York. They say goodnight and hang up. Brady then shows up at Chloe’s door, soaking wet and declares it’s officially the business trip from Hell.
Belle enters the Brady Pub and sees Philip slam his laptop shut. Belle asks what’s wrong. Philip responds that Brady is still after Chloe and he’s not being subtle about it.
Tripp hopes he didn’t betray Chanel’s confidence by telling Allie about her and Johnny. Allie says that Chanel would’ve told her eventually and asks if she mentioned why they didn’t hook up. Tripp says it was because neither of them had a condom. Allie says thank God for that which Tripp questions. Allie points out that Chanel could get pregnant. Allie says she loves Henry but he deserves to have a father. Tripp asks if she doesn’t think Johnny would step up. Allie calls Johnny more of a love em and leave em type, which is why she doesn’t think it’s a good idea that he and Chanel are dating. Allie declares that somebody is definitely going to get their heart broken.
Johnny tells Chanel that it’s the cook’s day off so all he has is peanut butter and jelly sandwiches which she accepts. Chanel looks to the portrait of Stefano and asks who he is. Johnny informs her that it’s Stefano DiMera. Chanel comments that he looks like the guy you don’t mess with. Johnny admits a lot of people were afraid of Stefano, but he was always good to him. Johnny adds that Stefano is the one who called him Giovanni. Chanel asks which he prefers to be called. He says he’s used to either one, so she can call him whatever she wants, as long as she calls him.
Philip informs Belle that now Chloe and Brady are staying in a motel tonight. Belle doesn’t see how Brady is trying to take Chloe away from him. Philip doesn’t think the jet just happened to have mechanical problems as Brady could’ve paid off the pilot to fake an emergency landing. Belle asks what he’d get out of that since they were staying overnight anyways. Philip argues that in New York, Chloe would’ve been with Parker and her parents while now Brady has her all to himself in the middle of nowhere. Belle questions him believing that Brady would deprive Chloe of seeing her son just to get her alone. Philip thinks Brady would stoop to anything to get Chloe back as he does not trust him one bit.
Chloe gives Brady a towel and asks why he’s so wet. Brady informs her that he walked in to his motel room and found an elderly couple going at it. Brady says he tried to leave but the old man called him a pervert and dumped a bucket of ice water on him as he was walking out. Chloe laughs at the story. Chloe jokes that she’s grateful that the old man didn’t hurt him. Brady jokes that he’ll never be able to forget what he saw in there. Chloe guesses they double booked the room. Brady mentions that they don’t have any other rooms available because they are painting. Chloe asks what he’s going to do then. Brady was hoping he could stay in Chloe’s room. Chloe questions if Brady is telling her the truth.
Shawn asks Ben and Ciara where they are going for their honeymoon. Ciara mentions that Ben wanted to just go back to the cabin. Ben points out that he just fixed it all up. Ciara tells him he did a great job but they just got back from there and it’s not honeymoon material, which Ben and Shawn agree with. Ciara informs Shawn that they decided on a place important to Hope and Bo, New Orleans. Shawn recalls Hope and Bo’s first wedding being there. Ciara calls it a big turning point for them. Shawn says they had some great years after that. Ben says they will too.
Brady questions Chloe thinking he made this up. Chloe says it sounds a little convenient and that he has been open about his feelings for her. Brady jokes about the idea of paying off the pilot and the desk clerk then the old man who dumped ice water on him. Chloe points out that he still hasn’t answered her question. Brady tells her no, he did not plan any of this and he thinks she knows her too well to do something this underhanded. Brady remarks that it’s more Philip’s style. Chloe tells him not to start on Philip since he’s not a saint either. Brady admits that he doesn’t like that Chloe is with Philip, but he respects her decision. Brady adds that if she’s not comfortable with sharing a room with him, he will go sleep in the lobby. Chloe stops him and agrees to let him stay the night. Brady thanks her but Chloe notes that Philip won’t be happy about this.
Belle tells Philip that he’s being paranoid as no one is trying to take anything from him. Belle adds that his fries are getting cold while he’s ranting about Brady. Philip insists that he’s not wrong about this and that Belle could help him prove it. Philip says Belle works for DiMera, so she must know how to get in touch with the pilot. Philip asks Belle to give him a call and say she heard about the emergency landing. Belle tells him that Brady is still getting over Kristen, so he’s not spending his time trying to win Chloe back. Philip points out that Brady found time to take Chloe as his date to Eric and Nicole’s anniversary party. Belle calls that platonic but Philip points out that Brady also kissed her. Belle points out that Brady being interested in Chloe doesn’t mean she is interested in him. Belle tells Philip that Chloe chose him and asks if he trusts her. Philip tells Belle to call the pilot.
Chanel and Johnny finish their food. Chanel asks what they do now. Johnny suggests going to the pool. Chanel notes that she doesn’t have a swimsuit. Johnny says he doesn’t either but they can still go. Chanel doesn’t want everyone looking and says she was raised with class. Johnny doesn’t know if she will like his next suggestion then. Chanel says she’ll probably go for it if it’s not being naked in front of everybody. Johnny suggests they run upstairs to his room and pick up where they left off last night. Johnny adds that he came prepared this time. Chanel asks how she could say no.
Tripp tells Allie that he thinks Johnny was just as in to Chanel as she was in to him. Allie argues that if Johnny truly liked Chanel and respected her, he wouldn’t have tried to get her in bed after one date. Tripp guesses the feeling was mutual but Allie insists that Johnny is using Chanel. Allie decides that she has to go have a talk with her brother and it can’t wait. Tripp offers to go with her but Allie says this is between her and Johnny, so she’ll be back in a little while. Tripp questions if that’s really a good idea as Allie hurries out the door. Tripp then wonders what just happened.
Brady questions Chloe thinking that Philip would have a problem with them sharing the same room for just one night. Chloe argues that he knows that he would since he hates the idea of them even taking a trip together. Brady informs Chloe that Philip said he would kill him if he was inappropriate. Chloe notes that Philip would definitely think it’s inappropriate that they are sharing a motel room. Brady asks if he really has to know. Chloe questoins lying to Philip. Brady suggests just not telling him. Chloe calls that a lie of omission. Brady jokes about it then says she can tell Philip and watch him freak out, but adds that he’s not afraid of him. Chloe asks how she gets herself into these messes. Brady thinks she should ask herself why she wants to be with someone that she can’t be honest with.
Belle argues that Philip isn’t thinking this through. Philip asks what there is to think about. Belle says even if Brady paid off the pilot to make an emergency landing, the pilot wouldn’t admit it. Philip agrees and suggests offering him a lot of money. Belle says she won’t help him bribe somebody. Philip calls it a favor for an old friend. Belle notes that he’s starting to sound a little desperate. Philip says that he is as he feels like this is his last chance at getting things right with Chloe, so he can’t let her slip through his fingers again. Belle calls it a short trip and asks what could happen. Philip brings up the time Brady and Chloe went to North Dakota to find Chloe’s biological father in the summer after high school. Philip notes that things were going well for he and Chloe but Brady came in and stole her away from him. Belle argues that Brady didn’t set out to do that and was just trying to help her. Philip feels it doesn’t matter because he still lost her. Philip declares that he’s not going to let history repeat itself, so he’s going to get himself to Wilkes-Barre, Pennyslvania before it’s too late.
Shawn asks when Ciara and Ben are heading out. They say they are leaving tonight. Ben says they should get going but Shawn invites them to stick around for dessert that Belle is bringing from the Pub. They agree to stay. Shawn adds that as they wait, he can give them their wedding present which ties in to their honeymoon.
Ava goes to Allie’s apartment where Tripp answers the door and asks what she’s doing there. Ava explains that she made too much food for dinner so she thought she’d use it as an excuse to come see her grandson. Tripp informs her that Henry isn’t there as Steve and Kayla are babysitting.

Philip argues that Brady could be making his move right now. Belle suggests they play this out. Belle says if Philip goes to Wilkes-Barre and barges in to Chloe’s room, where she’s most likely sleeping alone. Philip points out that she said most likely so she left room for doubt. Belle asks how that will make him look to Chloe. Philip feels like a man in love while Belle says he’d be like a total psycho. Philip says he can bring flowers and champagne and say he came to surprise her. Belle feels she would see right through that and that Philip doesn’t trust her, which could drive her right in to Brady’s arms. Belle tells Philip to stop his paranoid jealousy and chill out.
Chloe tells Brady that she can be honest with Philip about everything except Brady. Brady asks why that is. Chloe says for one thing, they used to be married. Brady reminds her that a couple months ago, she said she wanted him back. Chloe reminds him that he said he wasn’t interested so she got over him, even when he kissed her. Brady notes that he wasn’t aware she had gotten over him when he kissed her. Chloe assures that she has and she’s still over him. Chloe states that Brady is just a touchy subject with Philip. Brady says that Philip is just insanely jealous. Chloe argues that Brady pushes his buttons. Chloe feels there was no reason for her to come on this trip and that Brady only asked her to come because he knew it would upset Philip. Brady says he asked her to come because she’s a vital asset to the company. Chloe questions him having no other agenda and tells him to be honest. Brady admits he likes spending time with her and asks if that’s wrong. Chloe says it is wrong since she has a boyfriend. Chloe declares that the problem here isn’t Philip, it’s Brady.

Allie questions if they are going upstairs to finish what they started last night. Johnny asks how she knows about that. Chanel apologizes for over sharing. Johnny argues that it’s not a problem. Allie says it is because she doesn’t want Johnny charming her friend in to bed like he does every other girl he meets.

Chloe tells Brady that she gave them a chance to be together and opened up about her feelings for him, but he couldn’t do that to Kristen. Chloe declares that Brady made his choice and even though she thought Kristen was bad for him and that she could make him happy, she kept her distance and even offered to quit her job to give him space. Chloe cries that now that she’s chosen to be with Philip, Brady won’t do the same thing and she doesn’t think that’s fair. Brady argues that Chloe only made that choice was because Philip said that if she was with him, Kristen would be a threat. Chloe stops him and calls it a rotten, long night.
