Marlena admits she erased Kristen’s messages to John. John blows up, angry that her actions prevented him from being there for injured Brady. John asks Marlena to let go of her growing paranoia about Kristen but she refuses, widening the rift between the couple. Brady starts to see Kristen in a different light, believing she may have indeed turned over a new leaf. He tells John he will be stepping back from his role of protecting their family from Kristen – he doesn’t think it’s necessary. Meanwhile, Kristen shows her cards for the first time as she “thanks” Marlena for playing right into her hand. Gabi and Will discuss options regarding her pregnancy. They both do not want to risk their fledgling romances with Nick and Sonny, respectively, and finally agree that an abortion would be the best course. Meanwhile, Sami finally informs Rafe of Gabi’s “condition” – both assuming Nick is the father. They head to the pub so Rafe can talk to his sister. But she is nowhere to be found. In trying to track down Gabi, Sami inadvertently reveals to a surprised Nick that Gabi is pregnant. Lucas visits Sonny, hoping to make peace – and the two agree their love for Will is common ground on which to build a truce. Later, Will goes to Sonny to borrow money for Gabi’s procedure but covers as to why he needs it. Will then meets Gabi with the cash and is surprised to find Lucas with her – and his father wonders what the money is for.
