Both tell her she's misunderstood. Nicole wonders if EJ is Taylor's mystery man, which her sister denies. Nicole then assumes Taylor is uneasy because she hates EJ for being a DiMera and hurting Nicole in the past. In private, Lexie gets EJ to admit Taylor is the woman he was trying to track down. However, he states it doesn't matter because Taylor could never be interested in a man like him. EJ takes Nicole home to start their wedding night, as Lexie asks Taylor about her feelings for EJ. Taylor kind of confirms what EJ said about her not being interested in a DiMera. At home, EJ pulls back from making love to Nicole, and she asks him what's going on.
