In the Kiriakis mansion, Abby stopped by to drop off a hand mixer she had borrowed from Maggie. Daniel thanked Abby for offering to babysit Parker so that he could attend Brady's wedding. Changing the subject, Daniel asked Abby if J.J. was happy to be home in Salem. Unsure of how to answer, Abby sighed. Abby noted that J.J. had loved boarding school and had not been home since his father's death.
Abby noted that she had helped her mother clear out her father's things and that J.J had not been there to share in the experience. Abby theorized that J.J. was finally confronting the fact that his father was gone.
In the Horton living room, Jennifer asked J.J. if he still had Daniel's MP3 player. With a smirk, J.J. thought about when he had returned the broken MP3 player to Daniel. When Jennifer asked J.J. if he had spoken to Daniel, J.J. admitted that the MP3 player had stopped working while J.J. was using it. Upset, Jennifer wondered aloud if she could get the player fixed for Daniel. Before J.J. could say anything, Jennifer received a text message from her assistant.
Annoyed that his mother was reading her text message instead of talking to him, J.J. stood up and started to leave. Jennifer stopped J.J. and demanded to know where he was going. When J.J. said he wanted to get out of the house, Jennifer told J.J. that he needed to stay out of trouble. J.J. swore that his roommate had been the one to drink and do drugs. Jennifer reminded J.J. that no matter what had happened in school, J.J. had been the one to be expelled.
Jennifer's phone rang, and she noted that she needed to take the call. Jennifer told J.J. that he could not leave until they talked. Annoyed, J.J. sat on the couch and waited. After Jennifer's phone call, she sat down next to J.J. and told him that she loved him. Jennifer asked J.J. to talk to her. As J.J. looked at his mother, Abby entered the house with Daniel. Jennifer kissed Daniel hello.
As Jennifer told Daniel that she would have his MP3 player fixed, J.J. interrupted to explain that the player could not be fixed because it was smashed. Stammering, Jennifer noted that J.J. would earn the money to replace Daniel's MP3 player. Daniel shook his head and noted that J.J. did not need to replace the player. Sighing, J.J. admitted that in addition to breaking the MP3 player, he had also broken Parker's toy train set.
When Jennifer asked what had happened, J.J. explained that he had left the train set running for a couple hours and burned out the circuits. Furious, Jennifer ordered J.J. to get a job so that he could pay to replace the MP3 player and the train set. J.J. apologized to Daniel, and Daniel told J.J. not to worry about replacing the items.
While Jennifer and Daniel talked in the living room, Abby walked with J.J. to Horton Town Square. Abby asked J.J. to give Daniel a chance because he made Jennifer happy. Upset, J.J. argued that Jennifer had moved on with Daniel before Jack had died. J.J. admitted that he missed Jack, and Abby noted that she felt the same way. Abby told J.J. that she had felt responsible for Jack's death, but she had realized that Jack's death had not been her fault.
J.J. confided that he had not felt like Jack had died but was instead off on one of his adventures. "I kept waiting for him to show up," J.J. said. Abby assured J.J. that the family would help him grieve for Jack and move on. As J.J. nodded, he looked across the square. Abby turned and asked J.J. about the man across the square. J.J. explained that he had met the man at registration for school and he excused himself to talk to the guy.
In the Horton living room, a frustrated Jennifer worried about her son. Jennifer noted that she should have pulled J.J. out of school after Jack's death so that he could have mourned with her and Abby. Jennifer swore that J.J. was not himself and she hoped that J.J. would be able to get past his anger and start fresh with Daniel.
After Sami and E.J. made love, she asked him to tell her about the phone call he'd had in the pub. When E.J. resisted, Sami asked him to tell her the truth. Sighing, E.J. said he did not want to defend himself. Sami noted that she believed E.J. had not ordered the beating but that she was concerned that E.J. did not want to talk about a phone call that made him look guilty. When E.J. refused to talk about the call, Sami asked him why she was engaged to him if he felt he could not tell her the truth.
E.J. noted that he loved Sami and that he was not being dishonest with her. "If it doesn't have anything to do with Rafe then why can't you tell me? Is it illegal?" Sami asked. Smiling, E.J. noted that if he told Sami the truth, she would keep asking questions. E.J. promised that he would never do anything to hurt or disappoint her. Smiling, Sami kissed E.J.
Outside the pub, Justin asked Kate about Rafe. Kate informed Justin that she believed the DiMera family was to blame. When Justin asked if Stefano had ordered the beating, Kate shook her head. Kate said that she believed E.J. had ordered the beating. Not buying Kate's theory, Justin reminded her that E.J. did not need to remove Rafe from Sami's life. Shaking her head, Kate noted that E.J. had ordered the beating in order to assure that Rafe would never be an issue in his relationship with Sami again.
After talking to Justin, Kate walked to the coffeehouse and ran into Sami. When Sami noted that she was looking for Will, Kate said that she was waiting for Will as well. Sami said that she had not spoken to Will since Rafe's beating. With an accusing smirk, Kate asked Sami if she meant when E.J. had ordered Rafe's beating.
When Sami defended E.J., Kate countered that Sami was blind. Narrowing her eyes, Sami said that it was clear that Rafe had dumped Kate. Shocked, Kate asked if Sami was accusing Kate of ordering someone to beat up Rafe. As Sami glared, Kate called her insane and walked away. Sami chased Kate and noted that Rafe was in a coma just as Chloe had been after Kate had exacted her revenge. Kate slapped Sami and called her a bitch.
In the park, E.J. met with Justin to talk. E.J. explained that Hope and Sami knew about his phone call with Justin the night of Rafe's beating. When Justin asked why, E.J said that Gabi had overheard the call and told Hope, who had suspected the call was about Rafe's beating. With a raised eyebrow, Justin asked E.J. if he had been involved in Rafe's beating. E.J. grew upset.
"You're indignant with your track record?" Justin joked. E.J. swore that he had not been involved in Rafe's beating, and he did not believe Stefano had been involved either. When Justin asked E.J. if he needed to tell Hope that the phone call had been with him, E.J. shook his head and noted that he did not want anyone to know about their working relationship. E.J. said that he was innocent and that he did not need Justin's help to clear him with the police. E.J. handed Justin three envelopes.
In a shed on Smith island, Will frantically worked to undo the plastic zip tie around Nick's wrists. When Will had almost worked through the tie, he heard Jensen outside, and Will ran to the corner to hide. Jensen returned to the shed and demanded to know where to find Gabi. When Nick asked Jensen to leave Gabi alone, Jensen theorized that someone had helped Gabi escape. Jensen snarled that Gabi was too big to get very far.
Crouched in the corner, Will remained hidden. Jensen told Nick that the next ferry to the mainland would not be for two hours, so he had time to track down Gabi. When Nick renewed his plea to leave Gabi out of Jensen's revenge scheme, Jensen disagreed. Jensen reminded Nick that he had beaten Rafe because he had mistaken Rafe for Nick. When Jensen said that he planned to finish killing Rafe after he murdered Nick, Will struggled to remain quiet in the corner.
Nick urged Jensen to start a new life. Jensen agreed, but added that he planned to start a new life after he cleaned up the loose ends from his old life. As Jensen started to leave, Nick pleaded with him to leave Gabi alone. With a grin, Jensen said that Gabi was alone in the woods and that he would find her. As Nick begged, Jensen asked Nick if he had told Gabi about Nick's history with Jensen in prison.
"Do I have to remind you how close we were?" Jensen asked. Furious, Nick yelled at Jensen to shut up. Jensen asked why Nick had turned on him in prison. Jensen reminded Nick, "You were my bitch!" In the corner, Will gently picked up a wrench. Jensen noted that it was time for Nick to die, and he leveled the gun at Nick's head. Jensen added that he would tell Gabi about his relationship with Nick before he shot her and the baby.
Seizing the opportunity, Will burst from the shadows and hit Jensen over the head with the wrench. Jensen dropped the gun but managed to recover from the blow in time to fight with Will. Nick reached out with his leg to pull the gun closer, while Will and Jensen traded punches. As Nick's shoe brushed the gun, Will and Jensen fell to the ground and both reached for the gun. Will and Jensen rose to their feet, the gun between them, and the gun fired.
Near the dock, Gabi told Sonny that her water had broken. In an attempt to calm Gabi, Sonny reminded her that there was plenty of time between Gabi's water breaking and the birth of the child. Panicked, Gabi informed Sonny that she had been having contractions all day. Sonny told Gabi that he would get her to safety and to trust that Will would untie Nick.
Sonny escorted Gabi to an abandoned cabin and sat her down. When Gabi asked Sonny if he knew anything about childbirth, Sonny admitted that he had watched part of a video in health class but that he had covered his eyes. Scared, Gabi called out for Nick. Sonny timed the contractions and noted that they were two to three minutes apart. As Gabi fretted, Sonny attempted to distract her by joking that it was hard to imagine that the two of them would be working together to deliver her baby.
Gabi growled that she did not want Sonny to pretend that he did not hate her because if she had been in Sonny's position, she would have hated her. Ignoring Gabi's comments, Sonny grabbed a package of clean drop cloths from the corner and opened them up to place under Gabi. As Sonny looked for something to cut the umbilical cord, Gabi apologized for her part in hurting Melanie.
Sonny held Gabi's hand and told her that he would be by her side. As Sonny noted that Gabi would one day tell her daughter about the night of her birth, he mispronounced Arianna's name. Gabi shouted out the correct pronunciation of Arianna and continued to breathe through her contractions. Gabi cried out that the baby was ready, and Sonny urged Gabi to push.
In the rectory, Hope asked Vargas if he had any information that could help her track down Jensen. When Vargas noted that he had no information, Hope blamed herself. Vargas assured Hope that it was not her fault. Shaking her head, Hope explained that she had received a notice from the prison and had failed to see it in time. Hope begged Vargas to tell her everything he knew about Jensen.
Struggling to remember, Vargas noted Jensen had talked about working on the docks of Smith Island. Hope thanked Vargas for his help and left for the island. Hope and two police officers jumped in a police boat and headed out to the island. Once there, they split up and searched for Jensen. Hope heard Gabi screaming and ran toward the sound.
In the cabin, Gabi ordered Sonny to look and see if the baby was crowning. Sonny reluctantly looked under the blanket and noted that he could see the baby's head. Sonny pulled the baby out, but the baby did not cry. Panicked, Gabi asked what was wrong with her daughter.
In the shed across the island, Will collapsed to the ground from a gunshot wound as Nick cried out in horror. "You killed him, you son of a bitch!" Nick yelled. Nick argued that though Jensen had destroyed his life, he had been in prison when it happened. Nick added that Will was an innocent person and had not deserved to be shot. Annoyed, Jensen leveled the gun at Nick's head, and Nick growled that Jensen would pay for what he had done. As Jensen leaned forward, Hope kicked in the door and shot him.
