Recap written by Michele and Cheryl
Alex and Xander ran into each other at the pub. Xander made fun of Alex for Bella not doing well. He said Alex shouldn’t have put Theresa in charge. While defending Theresa, Alex wondered why he would take advice from the person his father hired to mow the lawn. Xander tried to make peace by suggesting they break bread at Maggie’s Christmas gathering. Alex said they would break more than bread if he kept starting with him. Konstantin was upset about Theresa thinking she could walk away without consequences. He decided to call her. When Theresa’s phone rang, she saw Konstantin’s name. She ignored the call and hugged Andrew. Andrew told her Shane gave him Victor’s case. He said he saw Theresa’s face in one of the enhanced pictures. Theresa lied about Konstantin wanting to impress Maggie. She said he came up with the save the baby idea. Theresa said she wanted to help because Maggie was lonely. Andrew believed her because it sounded like something she would do. He said it made her an accomplice to kidnapping. Konstantin showed up and overheard Maggie talking to Sarah about Victor. Maggie told Sarah how sad she was. Sarah asked if Konstantin moving out made her feel lonely. Maggie said he had nothing to do with it. It was time for him to go because he put her family at risk. Sarah said she didn’t want her unhappy.

When Sarah and Maggie finished talking, Maggie ran into Alex. Konstantin continued to listen to her conversation. Maggie told Alex how upset she was that Bella outweighed the ad revenues. Alex said it was a one time start up cost. She ripped into him for putting money in a dying commodity and for putting Theresa in charge.
