Marlena is lying in bed thinking about the night that John was killed when suddenly she hears a noise that startles her. When she sees nothing there she picks up his picture and asks him how she is going to get through Christmas without him. She hears the noise again and gets up to investigate. When she gets downstairs she finds Sami who tells her Merry Christmas. She brings her a Christmas present which is a double framed picture of the twins.

Marlena calls Roman and asks him to come over. When he gets there she asks him if he can call and find out where Brady is. Marlena tells Roman now that he is there Sami can give him her good news. Sami tells him that she has left EJ for good. She is going to file for a divorce. Marlena says it is odd because they can’t even find Cloe in Vienna. Sami says she can’t believe she didn’t know it but Cloe is there in town. Marlena is mad now that Cloe never let her know she was back in town. Marlena calls Cloe and tells her she wants some answers about Brady and she will expect to see her within the hour.

While Marlena and Roman and Sami wait on Cloe, Roman’s phone rings and he says it is from Vienna and says he will take the call in the other room. Cloe comes in and Marlena drills her about where Brady is. She tells Marlena that she doesn’t know where Brady is. She says they had a bad fight and he ran out on her leaving her alone. She says she didn’t know what to do so she came home. Marlena tells her she should have come to her to let her know. Cloe swears to her that she doesn’t know where Brady is but Marlena doesn’t believe her. She says she is hiding something, but Cloe says that’s not true. Marlena says she wants to know where Brady is now. Roman walks in and says that is what the Vienna police want to know to. He says they want to question Cloe about it too.

Cloe goes to see Phillip and he tells her that his sources confirm that she and Brady are not divorced even though she claims they are. She tells Phillip she had to find a way home because the Vienna police were looking for her because she was there on an expired Visa. She hasn’t seen Brady, she has no idea what happened to him. She tells Phillip Brady isn’t the same person he was before, he has changed. Phillip offers to make some calls to see what he can find out but she asks him not to yet. She says she is in some trouble and she promises to explain it more to him when she can but asks that he be there in case she might need his help.
