EJ arrives home and cannot find Nicole. Sami is praying for answers as Nicole walks in. Kayla enters the room and Marlena tells her the good news. Kayla tells Marlena she expected that John would regain his memories from the tests but also looks upset. Marlena wants to know what else is going on with John. Stefano tells EJ he is going to go save the families fortunes. Nicole has a fantasy about confronting Sami and beating her with a statue. Kayla informs Marlena that John's central nervous system had a catastrophic episode and he will need more care which Marlena vows to find for him.

Sister Theresa brings Sami some food and Sami worries about what is taking Rafe so long. Nicole is hiding and watching as Sami tells Sister Theresa that she needs her to take the baby until she can figure out what to do next. Sister Theresa agrees and inquires where Sami is planning to give birth. Sami realizes she hasn't even considered where she could give birth. When Sister Theresa suggests a hospital in Salem, Sami refuses telling her she has to go where no one will know her. Stefano receives a call from his contact at the hospital about John. EJ refuses to allow Stefano to take the trip telling him he will go in his place. Kayla tells Marlena their is a facility in Switzerland that specializes in the type of care John needs.

EJ calls Nicole demanding to know where she has taken off too. Nicole tells EJ that she just went for a walk and EJ tells her he will be going out of time. Sister Theresa enters the room and blesses Nicole which causes EJ to wonder where she really is. Nicole covers telling him a nun just passed her. After Nicole hangs up with EJ, Sister Theresa wonders why she lied to the person on the phone. Chloe refuses when Daniel suggests they tell people the truth. Kate stops Lucas from calling Daniel telling him she will go and talk to him instead. Marlena tells John that the drug Charlotte injected him with caused him to be paralyzed. John tells Marlena to leave and never come back which Marlena refuses and she tells him about the facility that could help him get better. John asks Marlena to marry him again which she happily agrees to and John says he wants to do it before they leave for Switzerland. Father Jansen arrives and John and Marlena renew their wedding vows. They decided to do personal wedding vows and John promises the Father this will be the last time they do this. At Daniels, he receives a phone call and a knock on the door and he tells Chloe to answer the door while he gets the phone. Chloe is hesitant to answer it and Kate is on the other side but Kate decides to call Daniel before Chloe opens to door. Nicole continues to lie to the Nun by telling her that that her name is married that she needs help because she comes from a strict catholic family and she can't give birth in Salem because her family will find out about it.
