Sporting her new incognito disguise, Nicole opens the door to her mother, Fay. Nicole pleas for her help in getting out of the country. Fay balks, realizing she will never see Nicole again. Nicole plays the guilt card, and Fay finally acquiesces when Nicole lies and tells her mom she married an abuser just like her dad was. Fay feels she owes this to Nicole to atone for her lousy upbringing, and the mother and daughter share a loving moment. After Fay leaves, Nicole picks up her disposable phone and calls EJ. Rafe grills Gabi about her interaction with Nicole on the pier, and based on Gabi's answers, he is able to narrow down the search radius for Nicole and Sydney. Meanwhile, Sami goes to EJ with Nicole's bracelet and pleads that they work together to find their baby. They talk about the pain Nicole has brought them, and EJ tells Sami about Sydney's first days, and they share a warm moment. Meanwhile, Rafe discusses with Roman the possible whereabouts of Nicole and Sydney. They both agree she couldn't have gotten far. Rafe makes his way to the DiMera mansion. He witnesses the moment between EJ and Sami, but brushes it off and takes Sami home. Rafe declares that he will bring Sami's daughter home, and Sami vows to put all her faith in the man she loves. Meanwhile, Arianna and Gabi have words. Brady comes to Arianna's defense, and Brady and Arianna bond. However, the thaw between them is halted when Arianna borrows Brady's phone and realizes he's been trying desperately to get in touch with Nicole. She feels that Nicole and their respective pasts will always come between them. After learning Sydney is missing, Will starts canvassing town with flyers. He runs into Gabi doing the same. However, he lashes out at her when he realizes she's the one who helped Nicole escape. Melanie confides in Nathan that she kissed Philip, but she swears Nathan's the one she wants and that nothing will ever happen between her and Philip again. Meanwhile, Philip deduces that Stephanie has feelings for Nathan and suggests they work together to make everyone happy. Stephanie refuses, but Philip thinks fate will intervene sooner or later regardless.
