Update written by Joseph

Xander waits in the interrogation room at the police station.

Sarah is finishing her work at the hospital when she gets a call from Justin and asks what the news is. Sarah excitedly tells him she’ll be right there and hangs up, then hurries out of the hospital.

At the hospital, Chanel tells Paulina that she still doesn’t understand what happened but calls it the best day ever. Johnny comments on Paulina not needing a heart transplant while Abe calls it a true miracle. Paulina says having them all there made the difference. Johnny says they wouldn’t have had it any other way and as a bonus, they got to see Eli and Lani. Chanel talks about seeing Lani free and the twins getting so big. Paulina says they are a happy family again and it warms her heart. Paulina jokes about having to move the FBI headquarters to Salem so Eli can work local. Abe wishes her luck with that as Paulina questions if he’s underestimating her.

Ava decides she will go get Harris his pain meds and she will be right back. Ava exits the bedroom and then Stefan arrives at the front door, saying he needs to talk to her as he needs her help. Ava tells him it’s not a good time and he needs to go but Harris comes out of the bedroom and acknowledges Stefan as his would-be assassin. Harris declares that Stefan is not going anywhere, leaving Ava confused in between. Harris reveals to Ava that Stefan lured him to the loading dock and shot him in close range. Ava is shocked and questions Stefan shooting Harris. Stefan tells Ava that Clyde didn’t give him a choice. Ava calls Stefan a bastard and slaps him. Ava calls Stefan a lying son of a bitch. Stefan repeats that he had no choice as Clyde would’ve taken out Gabi. Harris argues that there was a choice for both of them. Harris tells Ava that he begged her to tell him the truth but she dodged the question and said she didn’t want him caught in the crossfire but that didn’t work out. Harris argues that none of this would’ve happened if Ava just told him the whole story and then Tripp and Wendy might not have been kidnapped. Ava agrees that she should’ve trusted Harris.

Sarah goes to the interrogation room and informs Xander that Justin called her and said he’s getting out, asking how that happened. Xander explains that Harris couldn’t positively identify him as his shooter so Justin convinced the judge to let him out on bail. Sarah is excited but can’t believe that EJ didn’t push back on that. Xander agrees and comments on a DiMera setting a Kiriakis free. Sarah says she has to call Justin back since she basically hung up on him to get here. Xander informs her that he’s downstairs getting his bond posted and once that’s done, he’s out of here. Sarah says he’ll be home as they kiss.

Paulina says at least Lani is now free to come and go as she pleases. Paulina hopes to see a lot of Lani and the grandbabies, even if Eli is off saving the world. Abe points out that maybe they can visit them in the summer. Chanel says she and Johnny will go with them. Paulina says before they make family plans, Chanel and Johnny will need some alone time together. Paulina encourages them to go home and rest. Johnny promises that they will. Chanel and Johnny say goodbye to Paulina and Abe. Johnny adds that next time they see Paulina, she will be home as they exit. Paulina says she loves them so much but jokes that she thought they’d never leave as her and Abe kiss. Paulina can’t wait for them to live together again. Kate and Roman then arrive to visit. Paulina says she’s so happy to see them. Roman says they are even happier to see her so happy and healthy. Abe asks how they got in so late. Roman reminds him that his sister is chief of staff. Roman and Kate mention seeing Johnny and Chanel on their way out and congratulating them on their marriage. Paulina calls their wedding the best news while Kate and Roman says the best news is Paulina being healthy and Abe getting his memory back. Abe confirms he remembers everything even back to their old days. Paulina is just glad they came and announces they are going home tomorrow.

Chanel and Johnny walk through the town square. Chanel says even though it was crazy last minute and worried about Paulina, their hospital wedding was perfect, simple, and sweet. Johnny agrees and says there was no pressure to perform in front of everybody. They talk about all the issues they avoided. Johnny points out that since they didn’t have a wedding reception, they never got to have their first dance as husband and wife. Chanel asks what they shall do about that. Johnny calls it a bit belated and says there’s no dance floor or band, but he’s in the mood right now so he asks her to dance which she accepts.

Sarah brings Xander home and apologizes for things being a bit of a mess. Xander swears to never take it for granted again. Sarah says she’s going to text Maggie to check on Victoria but Xander points out that it’s late so Sarah decides she’ll just call her in the morning as she’s sure everything is fine. Sarah says Victoria will be so happy to see him again and they will pick her up first thing in the morning. Xander declares that tonight is all their’s as they kiss.

Stefan tells Harris not to put this on Ava because they all know Clyde is the bad guy here. Ava agrees that they should’ve trusted Harris. Stefan argues that Harris is fine now and Tripp and Wendy are safe, so no harm, no foul. Ava complains that Harris was in a coma while Tripp and Wendy nearly died. Harris asks Stefan if it’s supposed to be okay that he’s only an attempted murderer and calls him a real disgusting piece of work. Stefan asks what about Ava and if Harris knows what Ava was doing when she was so lonely and guilt-ridden, calling it nothing to be ashamed of.

Paulina repeats that she and Abe are going home tomorrow morning and as wonderful as everyone at the hospital has been, she can’t wait to go. Roman comments on them being roommates once again. Paulina says then she’ll be back to work as Mayor again. Abe reminds her to make sure she heals. Paulina responds that she feels so strong like she can face anything. Kate calls it amazing and doesn’t understand what exactly happened. Kate asks if Paulina was misdiagnosed with a heart condition. Paulina asks Abe if she should tell them. Abe says to go ahead, so Paulina reveals that she flatlined. Kate and Roman asks if the doctors brought her back. Paulina explains that it wasn’t the doctors, but Abe was holding her hand and then put it over her heart. Paulina talks about the beeping getting louder and then seeing a bright white light and then she was healed. Kate doesn’t know what to say to that and calls it really miraculous. Abe says it definitely was. Abe adds that the other miracle is that he got his memory back at the same time. Roman calls that a story for the ages. Abe decides he and Roman will go get coffee. Kate sits with Paulina as she wonders what they are up to. Kate knows Roman is thrilled about Abe getting his memory back.

Xander carries Sarah to the couch as they continue kissing.

Johnny tells Chanel that now they have had their first dance. Chanel calls it lovely as they kiss. Johnny says there’s still one more thing they haven’t done yet as husband and wife this time. Chanel asks if they should head home. Johnny says a house full of DiMeras is not exactly romantic, so they look over to the Salem Inn. They then head to the Inn.

Ava asks Stefan what the hell. Stefan says he’s just trying to point out that none of them are saints. Ava tells Harris that it’s not like that as she was only pretending to be in a relationship with Stefan to protect Harris. Ava admits that one night, they drank too much and it was stupid. Harris says he doesn’t care as that was then and this is now. Stefan argues that she should be grateful that he didn’t tell him before. Harris brings up Stefan trying to kill him for a second time. Stefan complains about Harris making him agree to take the fall for their misdeeds and asks why he would do that. Harris argues that Ava didn’t try to murder him twice. Stefan declares that if he goes down for this, he’s taking Ava down with him. Harris says no as their agreement stands so Stefan is going to turn himself in for drug trafficking and money laundering, then he’s going to confess that it was him and only him that was acting as Clyde’s partner while Ava was coerced, threatened, and an unwilling participant. Ava questions why he would do that. Harris says there’s a real good reason because he’ll get a lighter sentence than he would for attempted murder of a police officer, so he’s going to take the fall for those crimes and then the man who shot him will remain unknown forever. Harris asks Stefan what’s it going to be.

Johnny and Chanel get a room at the Salem Inn and start kissing as they begin to remove their clothes and move onto the bed.

Xander tells Sarah that he had a dream after they fell asleep together where he couldn’t find her or Victoria. Sarah assures that it was just a dream. Xander says he knows why he had that dream, because the charges against him haven’t been dropped so he could still be charged with attempted murder and go away for a very long time. Xander worries that he couldn’t handle being away from Sarah and Victoria again. Sarah kisses him and they hug.

Roman tells Abe that he’s glad to have him back. Abe says he’s glad to be back. Roman talks about missing their times at the Pub. Abe says his heart beats for his wife and family, but his blood will always run blue which Roman toasts their coffee to.

Kate tells Paulina that she’s so happy to see her as her wonderful and energetic self as she was worried about her. Paulina responds that she was worried too but God had other plans for her and Abe. Paulina then admits that now that she and Abe are going to be living together again, she was always worried that she wasn’t really Abe’s type. Kate asks what she’s talking about since he adores her. Paulina says she knows that but worries about being in her presence all the time when Abe is more mellow and easygoing. Paulina calls herself a real handful. Kate jokes that she’s no walk in the park either and never thought she was Roman’s type. Paulina decides they are just like her and Abe, so she and Kate ended up with their opposites. Kate guesses someone up there knew better than they did. Paulina responds that someone up there took really good care of her. Paulina repeats that she feels so strong like she can face anything. Kate says that’s always been the case and everyone who knows her always knew that, so now she knows it too.

Harris asks Stefan why Xander. Stefan calls him a believable suspect, ex-con and a thug for hire. Harris argues that Xander was totally innocent and Stefan was willing to ruin his life. Harris repeats that Stefan tried to kill him twice and was going to let Xander take the fall, so maybe he’s letting him off easy with this deal. Harris warns that he better take the deal before he changes his mind. Stefan argues that Ava was as deep in it as he was. Harris doesn’t give a damn. Harris gives Stefan until 9 AM tomorrow morning to turn himself in or the deal is off and he won’t like what happens. Stefan then exits the apartment in frustration.

Roman questions Abe about putting his hand over Paulina’s heart and the room filling with white light. Roman asks if Abe has divine powers now or something. Abe sighs so Roman questions what he’s not telling him. Abe reveals it’s about Lexie. Abe knows it sounds bizarre and asks him not to share this with anyone, but says he saw Lexie and she’s the one who brought the miracle to them because Paulina was dying but the white light came and Lexie was in it. Roman asks if Paulina saw her too. Abe confirms that Paulina thought she was there to take her to Heaven but Lexie said they both needed to live. Abe says that is when Paulina’s heart started beating again and his memories came flooding back. Roman doesn’t know what to say but God bless Lexie for giving Paulina her life back and Abe his past back. Abe talks about his memories including the years he was with Lexie. Abe notes that he feels something disturbing which Roman questions. Abe states that even though Lexie is gone, he feels as if he’s disloyal to Paulina. Roman encourages that the woman he loves now is Paulina and his memories of Lexie are important but shouldn’t overshadow what he has now.

Paulina thanks Kate for coming and says she’s so blessed to have her for a friend. Kate says having someone to talk to really means a lot to her too. Paulina says most of her girl friends are back in Miami. Kate admits she hasn’t had many female friends. They joke about men and women being different. Kate jokes that Roman and Abe are probably talking about how lucky they are to have amazing wives like them. Paulina feels lucky right now too, to have an amazing husband and friend. Kate feels the same way.

Sarah tells Xander that they will take things one day at a time and not worry about tomorrow. Xander feels that’s easier said than done. Xander says he’d been so careful to stay on the straght and narrow, so he worries about being punished for his past. Sarah believes people can grow and change which Xander is proving. Xander worries that maybe they’d be better off without him. Sarah says he said that before but they need him here close. Sarah tells Xander not to argue as she wants him in her life and Victoria’s life because he’s important to them and because she loves him as they kiss.

Roman and Abe return to Paulina’s room. Kate asks how the coffee was. Roman jokes that it was terrible and asks what they were talking about. Paulina says it was just girl talk and asks if they were talking about barbecue. Roman says they’ll all get together for barbecue when Paulina is feeling up to it. Paulina says she’ll let them know. Roman says they will let her get some rest. Kate tells Paulina to take care and she’ll see her soon. Kate and Roman then exit together.

Johnny and Chanel lay in bed together after having sex. Chanel says lying in his arms is the one place in the world where she feels like nothing can go wrong. Johnny feels the same and suggests they stay here for a few nights and enjoy the privacy and the feeling that nothing can go wrong. Johnny knows she’s tired as she’s been through so much lately so they say goodnight.

Xander and Sarah continue kissing. Sarah says they have come so far and promises there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Xander asks what he did to deserve her. Sarah assures that he’s got her. Xander says he loves her. Sarah repeats that she loves him and they resume kissing as they then head to the back.

Ava tells Harris that what happened between her and Stefan meant nothing and she’s so sorry. Harris tells her not to apologize. Ava says he’s so calm but she knows he’s angry. Harris responds that they can’t change the past, so all they can do is move forward. Ava asks why he’s doing this for her and making Stefan take the blame when he knows she’s just as guilty. Harris thinks she knows why. Ava responds that she’s not so sure. Harris declares that it’s because he loves her and he knows she loves him as he heard her say it when she thought he wasn’t listening in the hospital. Harris asks if she meant it. Ava cries that she loves him as Harris hugs her.

Stefan walks to the Brady Pub but finds it closed and questions what the hell a guy has to do to get a drink around here. Stefan complains that he has to take the fall for everything while Ava gets off scot free. Stefan declares that they’ll see about that.
