Update written by Joseph

Marlena gives Eric his old Christening gown for Jude to wear. Marlena comments on there probably not being a crib for him at the DiMera Mansion and admits she doesn’t understand the change in venue from the Brady Pub to the DiMera Mansion. Eric explains that Nicole wanted to host the party. Marlena asks how Sloan felt about that. Eric admits she wasn’t thrilled, especially because he said yes to Nicole without asking Sloan which shocks Marlena. Eric asks how he was supposed to say no to Nicole after everything she has been through.

At the DiMera Mansion, Nicole tells Holly that Eric is going to want to take a ton of pictures tomorrow and asks if they should set up outside. Holly complains about the portrait of Stefano as a backdrop. Nicole asks Holly if she wants to go outside as she thinks they could both use some fresh air but Holly says she just wants to go to her room. Nicole stops her and asks if everything is okay. Holly says it’s not.

Tate sits in his room at the halfway house, reading back what he wrote in his journal as his therapist suggested he do. Tate states that he just needs to get out of here.

Stephanie meets Everett in the town square and questions him having caffeine. Everett thanks her for meeting him. Stephanie says she’d be wanting to talk with him too and that she tried to reach him at the Spectator but Chad says he’s barely been around. Everett responds that he’s had a lot on his plate. Stephanie informs Everett that she thinks it would be best if he hired a new law firm to work with the Spectator because she doesn’t think it’s a good idea for them to work together anymore.

Harris sits in his room until Xander shows up at his door. Xander asks if he’s going to let him in or if he’s afraid he’s going to shoot him. Harris asks what he can do for him. Xander says he came to thank him for helping him make bail and says he owes him. Harris disagrees and claims he just couldn’t positively identify his shooter, so the judge made the right call. Xander acknowledges that he’s done terrible things in the past but says he’s a changed man because he’s a father now and nothing is more important to him than being a good person for his daughter and the woman he loves. Xander wants Harris to know for certain that he did not shoot him and he is innocent.

Everett asks Stephanie not to punish herself because she’s angry with him. Everett says he hired her to do PR and social media because she’s the best but if she doesn’t want to deal with him directly, he’s sure Chad would. Stephanie states that she doesn’t want to deal with him in a professional setting and remarks that she doesn’t even know what to call him. Stephanie asks if he’s finally admitting that he was married when they were together in Seattle and that he cheated on Jada with her. Everett doesn’t fully understand what happened as there’s still a lot more questions than answers, but he has come to realize that there are a lot more gaps in his memory than he initially thought. Stephanie asks what kind of gaps. Everett informs her that he can’t remember his father.

Marlena tells Eric that he knows Sloan has issues with Nicole for good reason. Eric asks if she wants him to uninvite Nicole to the Christening. Marlena says he can’t do that since he already has Nicole planning the entire reception at the DiMera Mansion. Eric says that Nicole and Holly are like family to him. Marlena asks how Sloan feels about that. Eric admits she’s not exactly happy with him. Eric mentions that Nicole stopped by this morning and kind of bonded with Sloan which Marlena questions. Eric explains that Jude was fussy and Nicole calmed him down which Sloan seemed to be grateful for. Marlena calls that a very positive step but she’s still worried that Eric’s relationship with Nicole is very complex, so he has to be sensitive for other people. Eric says he’s trying his best but thinks she needs to stop worrying. Marlena just wants he and Sloan to be happy. Eric asks what that’s supposed to mean. Marlena says she wants them to be happily married and asks what he thought she meant.

Holly tells Nicole that she’s just upset about Tate because she thought he would be released from the halfway house when she told her that the drugs weren’t his, but she didn’t believe her. Nicole argues that it’s not that she didn’t believe her but that Holly said herself she doesn’t remember everything from that night. Holly argues that she remembers everything before it and she never saw Tate using drugs ever. Nicole remarks that there’s a first time for everything and that Tate was acting awfully suspicious that night. Holly argues that it’s not like she can prove Tate roofied her and complains about the restraining order. Nicole informs her that she and EJ agreed that Tate and Holly should keep some distance from each other. Holly complains that they act like Tate is a horrible influence on her when they went on one date. Nicole says to look how that turned out. Holly says it wasn’t because of Tate. Holly tells Nicole that what happened on New Year’s Eve wasn’t Tate’s fault, it was her fault.

Eric tells Marlena that he’s sorry as he just thought Marlena was trying to tell him something that Nicole might have said in therapy. Marlena says that would be an ethical breach. Eric agrees and apologizes for Jude being asleep. Marlena says it’s okay as she’ll see plenty of him tomorrow. Marlena adds that she and Brady are looking forward to tomorrow, noting that Brady is taking his duties as Godfather very seriously. Marlena is glad that Eric asked Brady because he needed this with everything going on lately. Marlena adds that they are all hoping that Tate is released as soon as Holly remembers what actually happened on New Year’s Eve, but it seems she doesn’t remember where she got the drugs. Marlena mentions that Brady thinks Holly is not telling the truth and he wants to believe his son. Eric points out that Nicole wants to believe Holly is telling the truth. Eric hates to say it since he loves Holly, but admits that Brady’s not the only on who thinks Holly is not telling the truth.

Nicole tells Holly to stop blaming herself for that night since the drugs were not her’s. Nicole brings up that Marlena made her realize that self blame is a coping mechanism to deal with trauma but it’s not good for anyone. Nicole says that terrible night, she thought there was no chance the drugs were Holly’s but then self doubt started creeping in and she started questioning herself as if she was oblivious to what was going on under her own roof with her own daughter. Nicole says she started blaming herself as a mother for not being attentive and worrying about her. Holly understands she was going through so much and asks her not to be so hard on herself. Nicole declares that she realized that Holly does not do drugs and she was the victim on New Year’s Eve as someone maliciously put drugs in her drink without her knowing and almost ended her life. Nicole remarks that she blamed herself for no reason just like Holly is now. Nicole asks what Holly could possibly be sorry for.

Tate continues reading his journal, questioning why he would want to be with someone who doesn’t even care about him and that Holly only dated him to get over Johnny. Tate rips up the page and remarks that he needs to get over her.

Stephanie questions Everett never realizing until now that he doesn’t remember his father. Everett guesses it was sort of an out of sight, out of mind thing but when he was in a session with Marlena, she asked about his mom. Everett says even though his mom died when he was younger, he could still see her face but when Marlena asked about his dad, he was totally blank. Stephanie calls that really strange. Everett asks if he ever told her anything about his dad. Stephanie admits that he didn’t. Stephanie remembers asking about him once but he just kind of zoned out on her, so she figured it was a sensitive subject and she never asked again.

Xander thanks Harris for his time and says he’ll be on his way. Harris questions that being it. Xander says he just came to say his piece. Harris offers him a drink of scotch which Xander accepts. Xander questions how Harris can so calmly share a drink with someone who everyone else believes tried to kill him. Harris responds that he has a gun and he believes that Xander didn’t try to kill him. Xander says it obviously means a great deal to him that Harris believes in his innocence, but questions why he does. Harris responds that he knows what it’s like to be accused of something you didn’t do. Harris talks about being guilty in the past but he’s worked really hard on himself and turned over a new leaf which he feels Xander is trying to do as well. Xander confirms that and repeats he’s done some terrible things in the past but that he would never be stupid enough to shoot a cop, especially now that he and Sarah are back together with their daughter. Xander asks why he would risk it all to put a bullet in Harris when he doesn’t even know him. Xander wishes there was some way to track down who sent him that text and deposited money in his account. Harris asks if Xander has any idea who might have set him up.

Marlena questions Eric thinking that Holly might be lying. Eric admits he thinks it’s possible and says that Holly was evasive when he spoke to her. Marlena is sure that Brady will be grateful that Eric talked with her. Marlena hopes the truth comes out soon. Eric asks how Marlena is doing since Brady said that John has been out of sorts lately. Eric asks if there’s anything he can do. Marlena says no but he’ll be her first call if she decides to talk about it. Marlena says she should get going and hugs him as Eric thanks her for coming by.

Nicole insists that Holly has nothing at all to be guilty about and asks her to just be kind to herself which Holly agrees to do. Nicole says she has to go get more things for the Christening and invites Holly to come with her but Holly says she’s kind of tired now. Nicole tells her to call her if she needs anything. They say I love you to each other as Nicole then exits. Holly then pulls out her phone and looks up the halfway house.

Tate continues reading over his journal about how he thought Holly came to the police station to tell the truth but she didn’t and now he can’t even see her. Tate decides maybe that’s a good thing and he doesn’t need Holly in his life anymore.

Stephanie asks Everett if Marlena had any idea why his memory was so badly affected. Everett says that she said it was very likely to do with the brain injury from his accident and suggested hypnotherapy. Stephanie says it sounds like it’s worth a try. Everett confirms he said he would give it a try but admits maybe he’s scared of what might come up, especially since he was told that he was a monster that did awful, unforgivable things. Everett suggests maybe he didn’t do those things but Stephanie says it’s pretty clear that he did. Stephanie suggests maybe the hypnotherapy will help him learn that there was another factor and he’s a different person now. Everett supposes it would be too much to ask or hope for with them. Stephanie says she’s sorry that he’s dealing with this mental health issue and she knows he doesn’t have a lot of people to lean on, so she’s not going to disappear on him. Everett says he appreciates that. Stephanie adds that she did have real feelings for him and was starting to have them again. Everett stops her and says he knows where she’s going with this. Stephanie tells him that she’s not saying anything is impossible and declares that if it’s meant to be, they will figure it out. Everett says he’ll take that and asks Stephanie not to give up on him as he then walks away.

Holly tries to come up with a lie to tell the halfway house as she then calls them and claims to be Tate’s mother, Theresa Donovan.

Tate is told that he has a phone call from his mother. Tate shouts back to tell her he’s meditating or something and he’ll call her tomorrow but they say that she said it’s important so Tate agrees to go answer.

Everett runs in to Marlena in the park. Marlena asks if he had any more memories. Everett says he unfortunately hasn’t. Marlena says they’ll keep working on that. They go to leave but then Everett stops her.

Nicole lights candles at the chapel as Eric then arrives.

Stephanie runs in to Jada in the town square. Jada tells her that she has a lot on her mind. Stephanie says she does too but she got the impression at the hospital that Jada was upset with her. Jada responds that she’s upset with the entire Bobby situation. Stephanie says she is too, but they are friends and they were both victims of his lies. Stephanie asks if they can get together and talk about. Jada declares that she doesn’t see Stephanie as a victim since she’s the one who was cheated on. Jada brings up that Stephanie was the other woman who helped break up her marriage. Stephanie is sorry that she feels that way and thinks of her as the other woman. Stephanie thinks she should be mad at Everett. Jada assures that she is. Stephanie knows Jada was hurt and she is so sorry about that, but argues that she didn’t know Everett was married and if she had, she never would’ve gotten involved with him. Jada asks if she’s sure that she didn’t know. Stephanie confirms that she didn’t. Jada suggests maybe a small part of her just didn’t want to know. Stephanie asks why she would say that. Jada questions if Stephanie ever hung out with his friends, met his parents, or looked him up on the internet. Jada points out that he was obviously keeping his life a secret from Stephanie and she had to suspect there was a reason for that, but she didn’t do any digging. Jada suggests maybe Stephanie didn’t want to mess up her life because she was so in love that she didn’t want to find anything that would ruin her perfect life.

Xander tells Harris that Salem is unfortunately home to a number of people who would want to do him in. Xander says that EJ is at the top of the list, so when he got that text, he went to confront EJ but Stefan was the only one home. Harris asks if he no longer thinks EJ set him up. Xander says he doesn’t know why EJ would want to do Harris in and have him murdered. Xander asks what Harris thinks since he’s the cop. Harris responds that he has nothing concrete so far. Xander states that as far as he knows, there was only one eye witness to the shooting and that was Harris. Xander asks if he’s sure that he doesn’t remember anything at all.

Everett tells Marlena that he knows he agreed to try hypnotherapy, but the more he thinks about it, the more afraid he is of what might come up. Marlena says she understands and admits that not knowing could be even more destabilizing while knowing might help him get rid of some of his fears. Marlena suggests they still move forward. Everett sees what she’s saying but he’s not sure.

Tate answers the phone and is shocked that it’s Holly, who reminds him to pretend she is his mother. Tate asks if she’s okay. Holly says she is but she hates what is happening to him. Holly brings up going to the police station but they wouldn’t let her see him and now there’s the restraining order. Holly can’t stand that this is happening to him because of her. Tate tells her that there is something she could do about it. Holly says she knows so Tate questions why she doesn’t do it.

Eric tells Nicole that he was stopping by to see the priest about the reading at the baptism. Nicole is sure he’s surprised to see her as she’s never been much of a church goer, but ever since losing her baby and everything that Holly’s been going through, she’s been talking to God a lot lately. Nicole says she unfortunately hasn’t heard from him yet. Eric encourages her to keep listening and admits he’s actually been doing the same thing lately. Eric declares that running in to Nicole here kind of feels like fate. Eric then tells Nicole that he has a confession.

Harris tells Xander that he’s sorry but he doesn’t remember anything. Xander points out that he was shot in the chest, so they must have been face to face. Harris says even if he does recover some memories, he’s not going to tell the prime suspect anything about the investigation. Harris tells Xander that while the charges against him remain active, he will do everything in his power to clear his name and he just has to be patient. Xander admits that’s not his strong suit. Harris believes they will find the shooter. Xander is unsure about that and says no justice, no peace.

Stephanie questions Jada thinking she has a perfect life and argues that she has her struggles just like Jada does. Stephanie asks where this is coming from and then asks if she’s not supposed to ask questions since she’s not the detective like Jada. Jada agrees that she’s not and questions if Stephanie’s ever had a job where she had to get her hands dirty. Jada remarks that if she found out that a man cheated on her dear friend with her, she wouldn’t be sticking by his side. Stephanie argues that’s not what she is doing. Jada says it seems like exactly what she’s doing and mocks her being sympathetic to Everett. Stephanie states that Everett is going through it as he’s very confused and doesn’t have friends or family here. Jada calls him a poor bastard then tells Stephanie to have a good day and walks off.

Marlena tells Everett that whatever they find out in hypnosis, she will be with him every step of the way. Everett thanks her. Marlena tells him that she will see him at their session and walks away.

Holly tells Tate that she thought telling EJ and Nicole that the drugs weren’t his would be enough. Tate points out that it wasn’t. Holly explains that Nicole was in a really bad place when she lost her baby and when she overdosed, Nicole was about to blame herself for not being there for her and not being a good enough mom. Holly tells Tate that it would kill Nicole if she thought those drugs were her’s and she doesn’t think Nicole could take it as she would totally fall apart. Tate knows she’s just trying to protect her mom. Holly still feels bad about what he’s going through. Tate hopes he won’t be in the place much longer, but admits that Nicole going off the rails could destroy her whole family so she shouldn’t tell her ever. Tate tells Holly not to worry about him. Holly says she is worried. Tate says the halfway house is not so bad. Tate tells Holly to just take care of her mom. Holly tells Tate that EJ just came home so she has to go and hangs up.

Nicole questions Eric having a confession. Eric says it’s something he only wants to tell her. Nicole says she’s listening. Eric brings up when Nicole came by this morning and he was getting out of the shower. Eric admits that he kind of eavesdropped on her and Sloan because he was worried that they wouldn’t get along, but once he saw Nicole help Sloan calm Jude down, it did his heart good. Nicole says she’s glad. Eric adds that after everything they’ve been through, he’s really grateful they can still be friends. Nicole says she is too and jokes that it wasn’t much of a confession. Eric guesses he just wanted to share with her how much their friendship means to him. Eric decides he will let her finish her prayer and he will see her there tomorrow for the baptism. Nicole says she’ll see him tomorrow as Eric then exits.
