Daniel confirms the awful truth – Nicole’s baby was dead before she fell down the stairs – and Nicole knew about it. Meanwhile, an unaware Nicole – while counting down the moments until her and Daniel go away together – gets an unexpected and unwelcome visit from Jennifer. Nicole kicks her out – but not before Jennifer sows some seeds of doubt in Nicole’s mind and heart. Later, Daniel returns home to confront Nicole with what he’s learned but finds her gone. Nicole’s paranoia and guilt have brought her to Jennifer’s doorstep – armed and dangerous. Victor implores Brady to stop Daniel from leaving town. He suggests Brady throw himself (and his money) at Nicole to get her away from Daniel. Brady refuses this cold-hearted scheme. However, he does try to reach Daniel and Nicole to talk them out of leaving – but they don’t answer his calls. Kristen assures Stefano that her efforts to bring the DiMera clan together are on track – then heads to a church board meeting where she runs into John, who is also on the board. John is suspicious about her agenda but then starts to thaw as Kristen’s reason for being there gets Father Tobias’ blessing. Later, Marlena challenges John’s lack of vigilance and wants to know what it will take before he recognizes the threat Kristen poses. Meanwhile, Kristen has a memory of a fraught moment with John.
