Gabi explains that she showed up and Megan was lying in the bed, she had her right where she wanted and she was about to tell her the truth when Dr. Rolf grabbed her from behind. Gabi says they struggled but he got the better of her. Kate question what prompted Dr. Rolf to come back. Gabi reveals that he was apparently keeping tabs on EJ and Kristen and when he found out what happened, he showed up to whisk Megan away to safety. EJ asks if she has any idea where they went. Gabi says she doesn’t but that Dr. Rolf mentioned something about a submarine. EJ then rushes out of the room.

Leo pleads with Kristen to spill the tea. Leo adds that it’s not about him but about Gwen and she deserves to know. Leo reminds Kristen that she and Gwen were cellmates in prison, so they must have had a special bond. Kristen points out that they were only cellmates for 24 hours. Leo argues that Kristen owes it to Gwen to tell him if she knows that Dimitri is going to break her heart.

EJ adds that afterwards, he went to confront Megan only to find that she had escaped from the hospital. Nicole asks how. EJ says it appears that Dr. Rolf provided a helping hand. Eric asks if he has any idea where they could’ve gone. EJ responds that he thought it was here but apparently others had the same idea as when he got to Megan’s room, Gabi was in handcuffs thanks to Dr. Rolf but she mentioned that Dr. Rolf said something about a submarine which is why he came to the docks. EJ states that if Megan was there, it appears she is long gone.

Kristen blows it off that she’ll just send him an edible arrangement. Leo complains about her treatment. Kristen responds that the DiMeras protect what is theirs and warns him to go before she does call the police. Leo agrees to go but warns that this is not the last she’s seen of him. Leo then goes to the front door, opens it and shuts it to make Kristen think that he left. Leo then sneaks upstairs behind her back.
Gwen and Dimitri lay in bed after having sex. Gwen thinks Megan will be quite pleased to know what kept her waiting but suggests leaving out the specifics of why they were delayed.

Dimitri then asks why wait and suggests they could go to the courthouse now and be legally married by the afternoon. Gwen questions if he’s serious. Dimitri calls it striking while the iron is hot. Gwen admits she was hoping for something a bit more romantic. Dimitri asks what could be more romantic than them proclaiming their undying love for each other, just them. Gwen would rather do it on a tropical island. Gwen then admits she doesn’t know what she wants which is why she hoped for time to figure it out before they say “I do.” Gwen questions what the hurry is.
Shawn questions Gabi about Megan escaping in a submarine. Gabi admits that she doesn’t know but that Dr. Rolf mentioned having one. Shawn hopes he can still catch up with them and rushes out of the room. Kate remarks that if Shawn thinks he’s going to catch up to them, he’s an idiot.
EJ tells Nicole that the police are on their way but he doesn’t think it will do much good as Megan is gone by now. Nicole encourages that justice will catch up to her eventually. EJ asks Nicole how it went with the doctor. Nicole responds that she said the same thing that Tripp said, that the baby is perfectly healthy. EJ calls that brilliant news and mentions making arrangements to fly the specialist back in. Nicole repeats that the baby is fine. EJ says he has every faith in her physician but he wanted to bring the specialist back in to the fold because he hated missing the first appointment with her, especially since she gave her such excellent news. EJ declares that in the coming months, he wants to learn everything he can about what they need to do in preparation for bringing their baby in to this world and he wants to do that as a couple, together. EJ and Nicole kiss as Eric stands by, looking annoyed.
Dimitri tells Gwen that there is no rush but he’s been waiting for someone like her for his entire life, so he’s a little impatient. Gwen knows the feeling but points out that she’s never been married before, so she really wants to make it something special. Dimitri promises that it will be. Dimitri asks how the end of the month sounds. Dimitri points out that it would be just in time for his 40th birthday. Dimitri mentions that he promised himself that he would be married by the time he turned 40 and he hates breaking promises. Gwen asks why 40. Dimitri claims it just feels like a significant milestone and a time to become the man he’s meant to be, who is mature and settled and the man that Gwen deserves. Gwen agrees that they will celebrate his 40th birthday the night after their fabulous wedding as they kiss.

EJ and Nicole return home to the DiMera Mansion. EJ prays that the Salem police department step up to the plate this time and finds the submarine. Nicole is sure they are highly motivated after all the havoc that Megan has inflicted on everyone. Nicole brings up EJ showing up to the docks and seeing her hugging Eric. EJ says she doesn’t have to explain as she was visiting Abe’s memorial so it makes sense that she would seek comfort in a friend. Nicole assures that’s all it was and is grateful that EJ understands. EJ declares that they love each other and they are having a baby together so that’s all that matters. EJ promises that his priority from now on is her and him and their precious baby as they kiss.
Kate joins Roman and Belle at the Brady Pub. Kate calls it a rough morning and mentions being at the hospital as she went to go check on Harris Michaels to make sure he doesn’t cause more trouble. Kate notes that Megan escaped while she was there and that Shawn showed up as she was leaving so hopefully they find her.
Shawn goes to the docks and calls Hope to inform her that Megan is on the loose again. Shawn hates scaring her like this but wants to make sure she’s being extra careful so that her and Bo don’t get hurt more than they already have been. Shawn tells Hope that he loves her and to tell Bo the same and that he’s thinking about him every second of every day. Shawn adds that if anything changes, he will let her know as soon as possible. Shawn then hangs up and pulls out a bottle of alcohol to take a drink.
Gwen walks through the town square and runs in to Kristen. Gwen tells her that she heard about her ordeal in the DiMera secret room. Kristen says it’s nothing a bitter cappuccino won’t fix.
