At the square Chloe runs into Anne while out and about with baby Holly. Madame Milbauer has good memories of the old days. She gushes about her new job at the Spectator and admires the baby in the carriage, assuming Chloe remarried after Dan. Chloe explains she did not.

Brady insists Nicole is no longer with dangerous Deimos but Chloe has her doubts. Brady warns Chloe her own questionable past will come out. In addition, Holly will hate her when she grows up. Chloe boasts at least Belle believes in her, unlike Brady, who is no longer her friend.

Back at the Kiriakis mansion Deimos states Andre is to blame for starting the war. He adds he is going to change as soon as he has tied up a few loose ends. It is all rather vague. Nicole wants no more violence. He assures her he will never order a hit again. However he does not promise not to approve one of his henchmen ordering one. Nicole is too emotional to notice ...

They have been friends years but is she doing the right thing? Chloe sighs ... Deimos encourages Nicole to go upstairs and look at the room he thinks would make a great nursery for Holly. Once she leaves, he shuts the living room doors and makes a call to a certain judge, getting his call through by boasting he is the brother of Victor Kiriakis. He declares to the judge on the line he would like to discuss the child custody case. He has a proposition ...

Nicole returns and smiles she liked the room for the nursery. Deimos knows it will work out. Nicole wonders how he knows. Here comes Brady with Dan's heart! He disapprovingly deduces Deimos and Nicole are getting back together ... Back in Prague, Steve and Kayla invite Austin and Carrie to their Salem wedding. They accept and Kayla and Steve share a kiss ... Rafe is Stefano's next visitor. He drawls he is happy for Marlena and the Bradys and adds maybe now Sami will let the family know where she is hiding with the kids. Hope is coming home and he will never be able to hurt her again. He leers he lost and look out for the rats. Then he walks away. Stefano stares darkly considering his next move ...

Sonny admits there was something more in the docks investigation but would rather not discuss it. He gives him a vinyl gift in a bag. Their old song on a 45 record! Paul loves it and laments he did not get him a gift. Sonny smiles helping get Stefano was a great gift. Paul must return to work and stands up. Sonny stands up with a smile and gushes first he has to do something. He kisses him on the lips. Paul has stars in his eyes ... Anna attempts to invite herself to the Valentine wedding and decides to join Carrie and Austin. She and Tony's ashes have unfinished business with a certain someone in Salem ...

Marlena now gets a call from unseen unheard John. She tells him Stefano is in a cell and agrees the nightmare is over ... Back at the Brady pub Shawn notes Belle will win her case and they kiss.
