Jack says no and that he’s getting a version of the same treatment. Jack remembers how hurt she was by the way he talked to her when Gwen had her miscarriage.

Chad thought it would be a good idea but he didn’t think she would be gone this long. Jack asks if there’s anything he can do. Chad responds that there actually is.

Jack informs him that he’s thrown Xander out after the drug dealing. Jack then declares that Xander is out of Gwen’s life for good.

Xander apologizes to Gwen to have to leave her. Gwen says it’s alright and Jack will be wondering where she is anyways. Xander will be glad to be past his legal troubles, even if it will cost him a fortune. Gwen wishes he didn’t have to take the fall for her and that she was honest with Chad about losing her baby before the fall so that Dr. Snyder wouldn’t have had anything over her. Gwen worries now about Jack finding out the truth. Xander assures that he won’t. Gwen doesn’t know how to thank him. Xander responds that she already did. Gwen admits she’s going to miss him because Jack would hate if he knew they were seeing each other and it wouldn’t make sense to him, so he’d be determined to get to the bottom of it and find out the truth. Xander tells her that he gets it, but asks if they could keep it a secret. Gwen questions another secret in this town. Gwen tells Xander that she’s afraid this is going to have to be goodbye.

EJ argues that Melinda has no right to confiscate Xander’s money. Melinda asks if EJ is worried about his payment. EJ informs her that the money was paid to Xander by Sami and it’s his money. EJ adds that he didn’t know about the transaction until after and suggests she contact Sami for details, but she’s left town.

Calista warns Bonnie to come up with the money or she will be staying single.

Johnny and Chanel go back to the DiMera Mansion. Johnny says they didn’t get to have dinner, so he can ask the cook to make some, but Chanel says she’s not that hungry. Johnny notes her not saying much and asks if that has to do with the scene Allie made. Chanel can’t believe Allie and Johnny are brother and sister. Johnny says the last couple of days have been fun, but her having a thing for Allie makes things complicated. Chanel asks if it does for him or for her.

Chad responds that he doesn’t intend to.

EJ and Xander walk back through the town square. EJ says it was a pleasure doing business with him and he’ll take the money now. Xander says not until EJ gets him his old job back at Basic Black. EJ says that Brady is on a business trip to New York while Nicole has been out sick all week, so when they are back in the office, he will follow up. Xander argues that EJ is the top man at DiMera Enterprises, so he could snap his fingers and make this happen. EJ says he’s done everything he said so far. EJ argues that the money belongs to him. Xander argues that Sami paid him willingly and that he did EJ a favor, since exposing Nicole got the ball rolling or else Sami could still be cheating on him, so he should be thanking him. EJ tells Xander to shut up and give him the briefcase now.

Bonnie heads back inside where Justin comments that Calista is quite the character. Justin is surprised Bonnie never mentioned her before. Bonnie says she was out of sight, out of mind, and then appeared out of the blue, so she felt she had to invite her to the wedding. Justin relates to similar experience with family members being on the spot. Bonnie thanks him for understanding. Bonnie then claims to Justin that the caterer wants the full payment before the wedding, so she thought he could just write a blank check and she would fill in the amount later. Justin tells her there’s no need, as it’s all taken care of. Justin tells her not to worry as all she has to do is show up looking beautiful and then they can start their new lives together. Bonnie cries that she wants that life so much. Justin adds that it’s great that Calista is there to have someone from Bonnie’s side of the family since her kids can’t make it.

Johnny doesn’t care if Chanel kissed Allie as long as she is sure that she’s over her. Chanel assures that she is. Johnny hopes so because he doesn’t want to be in a rivalry with his sister over her. Chanel states that Allie is with Tripp now and Allie’s happy, while she is too. Johnny says he is happy too then as they kiss.

Tripp asks Allie what bothers her about Johnny and Chanel dating. Allie talks about Johnny being her best friend growing up and now she feels she doesn’t even know him. Allie says Johnny was a total jerk tonight and worries about him being a jerk to Chanel. Tripp encourages that Chanel can take care of herself. Allie hopes they break it off before it gets serious. Tripp then reveals that Chanel told him that she and Johnny almost slept together last night.

Jack finishes a call. Gwen comes in and asks what’s wrong. Jack informs her that he just got some news that upset him. Jack reveals that Xander hired EJ to represent him and EJ found a way to get his case thrown out, so Xander is going to walk and get away with what he did to Gwen. Gwen tells Jack that it’s okay. Jack warns that Xander better stay away from Gwen.

Xander tells EJ that he can challenge him to a duel or he can make good on the rest of their agreement while he holds onto the money. Xander adds that when he gets his job back at Basic Black, he’ll hand over the million dollars. EJ warns him about trying anything. Xander gives EJ his room number at the Salem Inn and they walk their separate ways. Calista comes around the corner in the town square and gets a call from Bonnie. Calista asks if she got the money. Bonnie admits she tried to con Justin in to writing a blank check but her heart wasn’t in it and she failed which upsets Calista. Bonnie suggests that maybe after the wedding, Justin will open her up a bank account. Calista complains that after Bonnie marries Justin, she’ll never see her money. Calista informs Bonnie that she has a better idea, as she knows exactly where she can get a million dollars.
