EJ doesn’t believe it. Holly admits that she should’ve told everyone sooner. Nicole questions Eric knowing. Holly explains that Eric knew something was bothering her, so she had to tell him because she couldn’t keep it in any longer. Nicole questions why she went to Eric and not her.

Theresa says they have been praying that Holly would wake up and clean up the whole mess, but instead she threw him under the bus. Theresa doesn’t believe Holly is a good person and declares that she is bad news. Theresa calls Holly a selfish little liar, who she despises.

Nicole tells Holly that she could’ve come to her. Holly apologizes as she thought she was protecting her. EJ questions why Holly confided in Eric. Eric says it’s because they are close. Brady argues that it doesn’t matter and shouts that Tate has been going through Hell because Holly has been lying for weeks.

Holly informs him that she has proof and reveals that it’s in her room. Nicole tells her to show her so they head upstairs together.

Sarah tells Xander that she will be home a little late. Xander says he’ll probably be in the same spot and jokes that he’ll be checking on Victoria every ten minutes.

Nicole and Holly return to the living room where Holly presents the drugs to EJ, Brady, and Eric. Holly promises that Tate was shocked when he saw them and refused to take any when she offered them. Holly repeats that Tate tried to stop her from taking the drugs. Brady points out that Holly still let Tate take the blame for her overdose this whole time.

Tate asks Theresa to quit yelling at him. Theresa asks if he doesn’t know how upsetting this is and how it’s been hell on all of them.

Theresa hopes Tate will take this to heart. Tate doesn’t want another lecture on relationships. Theresa calls it just a few words of wisdom. Theresa then sits with Tate and tells him that relationships are complicated and she’s had her fair share of them and learned a lot. Tate says this isn’t like when she was younger as everything is different now. Theresa agrees that maybe they didn’t use apps, ghost each other, or communicate on social media but those feelings are exactly the same. Tate argues that he’s not a little boy anymore. Theresa asks him to let her finish. Theresa talks about the rush feeling of infatuation when involved with somebody. Theresa calls that a crush which is exciting but temporary and not the basis of a strong, healthy relationship that can last decades. Tate argues that’s not what he’s looking for. Theresa insists that he’s ready to start thinking about relationships, so he has to understand the key to a successful relationship is mutual respect. Tate questions her thinking he doesn’t know that. Theresa complains that he must’ve forgotten that with Holly because she clearly doesn’t respect him or care that he was falsely accused of a terrible crime or else she would’ve come forward. Tate responds that he’s sure Holly has her reasons for not being able to tell the truth. Theresa remarks that Tate is making excuses for inexcusable behavior. Theresa admits this is turning in to a lecture so she will stop there. Theresa wants Tate to ask himself if he trusts Holly enough for her to be honest and will she always have his back.

Paulina declares that she and Abe will be just fine then as they hug.

Holly tells Nicole that at first, her memory was a little fuzzy but after a day or so, she remembered everything and after she heard what Nicole said about blaming herself, she lied and didn’t know how to take it back or she was too much of a coward to take it back. Brady declares he’s done with talking as he gets that Holly decided not to hurt Nicole and hurt Tate instead.

EJ angrily follows him out. Nicole tells Holly that EJ will take care of this but Holly cries that she made such a mess out of everything that nothing will ever be fine again. Holly runs out of the room while Eric tells Nicole to let her go. Eric hugs Nicole as she starts to cry. Nicole asks Eric how long he has known. Eric says that Holly told him today after the Christening, but he felt it was her place to tell Nicole and not his. Nicole calls him one of the few people she knows that still keeps people’s confidence. Nicole brings up that Holly almost didn’t go to the Christening.

Sarah reminds Paulina to check her records online and make a follow up appointment. They say goodbye as Abe and Paulina then exit the hospital. Sarah calls Xander and asks if everything is okay. Xander says he’s just super frustrated as he’s been searching for hours but it’s an endless maze of dead ends. Sarah encourages that he will find something and she will help him when she gets off. Sarah suggests Xander take Victoria for a jog and clear his head. Xander calls that an excellent idea to try out the new stroller that Maggie got them. They say I love you to each other and hang up. Xander tells Victoria that they are going to play with her new stroller and mentions that he will change in to his jogging clothes, but then stops and says that Rafe said one of the witnesses described his jogging clothes which he wears every time he runs and are pretty distinctive. Xander then goes back to his laptop and reads over the witness statements.

Paulina is excited to spend a cozy night at home with her husband. Paulina says she’s never loved their humble abode as much as she does now. Paulina knows she’ll have to spend several days at the hospital for the iodine treatment but for now she’s not going to worry. Abe encourages that it’s just standard procedure and she’ll get through it with flying colors.

Nicole tells EJ that she is grateful for Eric helping out and encouraging Holly to be truthful. EJ says Holly obviously loves and trusts Eric which gives him credibility to him. Nicole admits they have a very special connection. EJ confirms he had the charges against Tate dropped. Nicole thanks him and knows Holly will be relieved as well. EJ says it’s obviously been weighing heavily on her and she obviously cares about Tate a great deal, but they’ve known that for awhile. EJ now wonders who did Holly get the drugs from or if she went off on her own looking for them. Nicole says she doesn’t know but they will have to question Holly about where the drugs came from and who gave them to her, pointing out that the drugs nearly killed her. EJ knows that would’ve destroyed Nicole but now the most important thing is to support Holly and help her though this very difficult time. EJ declares that they will do that together as a family as they hug.

Tate asks about Holly confessing. Brady confirms she did to him, Eric, Nicole, and even EJ. Tate can’t believe that Holly really came through for him. Brady says he’ll call John when they wrap up because he and Marlena will be very happy. Theresa suggests they go out and celebrate at the Brady Pub. Tate feels he should call Holly. Brady suggests waiting until he’s settled in. Theresa tells Tate not to go overboard in thanking her because she’s still very angry over what Holly put him through. Tate responds that he was angry too but he’s not anymore. Tate mentions that he even told Holly she didn’t have to tell the truth the last time they talked which Brady questions. Theresa asks why Tate keeps protecting Holly like this when she almost ruined his life. Tate says it’s okay because it’s over now. Theresa agrees that they’ve been vindicated. Brady tells Tate to start packing now. Tate says he can’t wait to get out as they hug.
