On Christmas morning, Marlena receives an odd call from the dry cleaners, but when she shows up, she meets Crystal, a psychic. Crystal tells Marlena that John is alive! The Hortons gather at Alice's to hang their ornaments on the tree, while Lucas says good-bye to Allie at his apartment. Sami rushes home but misses Lucas, finding only a good-bye letter from him instead. Max (dressed as Santa) and Nick (as an elf) read the Christmas story to sick children at the hospital. Stephanie tries to open up to Max, but she has flashes of Ford raping her and pushes him away. Later, Kayla comforts Stephanie. EJ surprises Stefano by revealing that he can walk again. He begs his father not to retaliate against Sami for leaving him. Later, Stefano and Rolf tend to a mystery man in the laboratory.
