Nicole fretted over Fay's warning about EJ, while Taylor assured her that Fay was well cared for in the hospital. EJ was surprised when Nicole and Taylor returned unexpectedly to the mansion. "Car trouble," Nicole shared. EJ volunteered to take them to the hospital and they accepted. Meanwhile, Rafe 2 disguised himself as a doctor and slipped into Fay's room. Fay frantically tried buzzing for help, but the chord broke. Rafe 2 explained, "You know I can't have you around knowing what you know." Fay pleaded for her life, but Rafe 2 was unmoved. Instead, he grabbed a pillow and held it over Fay's face until the fight — and her life — slipped away. Wearing a surgical mask, Rafe 2 quietly slipped away. Near the elevator, he avoided being detected by EJ. At the nurse's station, Nicole and Taylor panicked when they heard distress alarms coming from Fay's room. A nurse barred the sisters from the room, while Carly and Lexie tried to revive Fay. A moment later, Carly stepped out of the room and told them, "I'm so sorry." Nicole and Taylor broke down in tears. EJ comforted a weeping Nicole. Carly explained that Fay suffered a stroke and added it couldn't be helped. Nicole wanted an autopsy, but EJ advised her against it because the ordeal would be rough on both her and Taylor. Nicole stepped into Fay's room for an emotional farewell. A moment later, Taylor and EJ joined Nicole. EJ gently led Nicole away from her mother's bed. Taylor stepped out to phone Brandon. Nicole asked EJ to be nice to Taylor. "I have you," Nicole noted.

Philip defended Chloe, while Vivian took pleasure insulting her. Fed up, Philip wrapped his hands around Vivian's neck and advised her to step off. At the Brady pub, Philip encouraged Chloe to do something for herself. Chloe was surprised when she saw her musician friend, Jimmy, enter with his guitar. "It's open mic night," Jimmy smiled. "Are you going to sing?" Chloe protested to Philip that she wasn't prepared to sing. Philip threatened to sing "Macarthur Park" if Chloe didn't perform. "I love to hear you sing," he assured. Finally, Chloe consented. Philip rose and introduced her to the crowd. While Jimmy gently strummed the guitar, Chloe captivated the crowd with her rendition of "Motherless Child."

Stefano instructed Chad to go up to his room while he had a chat with Vivian. Vivian lied that the door was ajar and she stepped in to say hello. Stefano didn't believe her. "You broke into my house," Stefano insisted. "We have to decide how you will pay for this mistake." Stefano was interrupted by a phone call. Distracted, Stefano ordered Vivian to leave his home.

Nicole had a nightmare regarding her mother's mysterious warning about EJ. While Taylor looked at a photo of Fay, EJ entered the room. He wanted to talk, but Taylor insisted it wasn't the time. The doorbell interrupted them. EJ was irked that Rafe 2 once again showed up at the door unannounced. Rafe 2 offered Taylor condolences. When Taylor questioned how Rafe 2 knew Fay, he claimed it was FBI business. Taylor excused herself to check on Nicole. Rafe 2 informed EJ that he and Sami had a huge fight and he doubted the marriage would last much longer. "Thought that would cheer you up," Rafe 2 remarked. After Rafe 2 left, Nicole confronted EJ and asked if he was keeping a secret from her. EJ denied it. She and Taylor left to make funeral arrangements. "Something's not right," EJ confided to Stefano. EJ also updated Stefano on Rafe 2's meeting. "I don't trust the guy," EJ protested. Stefano reasoned that once Sami and Rafe's marriage was over, they would no longer have to deal with Rafe 2. Nicole overheard EJ and Stefano talking about Rafe and it aroused her curiosity.
While Melanie was jogging, a masked man approached her from behind with a knife. He warned Melanie to drop the reward for information on Arianna's hit-and-run accident.

Rafe 2 was thrilled by Sami's departure. Sami visited EJ and received his permission to take Johnny and Sydney with her to see Eric. At the loft, Nicole paid a surprised visit to Rafe 2, intent on questioning him about the secret he shared with EJ and Stefano. Nicole saw the piece of paper with Eric's name on it and asked Rafe 2 about it. He informed Nicole that Sami took the kids and left him. Nicole gave Rafe 2 a sympathetic hug.

Nicole slapped Rafe 2 for kissing her. She assumed that once again Rafe was using her to get information on EJ. "How many times do you think you can use me?" Nicole asked. "When EJ finds out that you kissed me he is going to kill you!" Rafe 2 quickly backpedaled and blamed his head injury for his inappropriate behavior. Nicole agreed to act like it never happened. Alone, Nicole was clearly determined to uncover the mysterious connection between Rafe and EJ. Meanwhile, EJ informed Stefano that Sami took the kids and went to Eric's. Stefano said that he was worried about controlling Nicole. Later, EJ consoled Taylor, who was deeply grieving Fay's death. Later, EJ visited Rafe 2 and congratulated him for pushing Sami away. Rafe 2 let it slip that Nicole dropped by, which alarmed EJ. Nicole confided to Taylor that the secret Fay spoke of involved Rafe.
Bo and Hope realized that Ciara deliberately ran away. Hope called Ciara's cell phone, but she refused to answer. "If I go back home, Mommy and Daddy will get divorced," Ciara confided to Theo. At the hospital, Lexie sensed Abe was hurting over Fay's death and comforted him. Hope phoned Lexie and informed her that Theo ran away with Ciara. Lexie and Abe headed directly for Bo and Hope's house, where Bo assured everyone that the children would be found.
Abigail encouraged Chad to join her in a summer internship at the hospital. Chad responded that he accepted a job at DiMera Enterprises.

Chad protested that he had to learn to trust his dad. "Okay, just don't jump in with both feet," Abigail warned. Stefano invited Kate to join him for dinner with Chad. At the Brady pub, Chad announced he had second thoughts about working for his dad. Stefano and Kate realized that Abigail held a strong influence over Chad.

Bo and Hope continued to frantically track down Ciara and Theo. Abe consoled Lexie, who fretted about Theo's safety. "Let's get out there and find them!" Lexie pleaded. Abe and Lexie went to the hospital and checked the database for injured children. Roman updated Bo and Hope on the hunt for the children, but didn't have any solid leads. Bo and Hope grew closer as they worked as a team to find their daughter. They checked the e-mails on Ciara's computer and realized she ran away because she thought her parents were unhappy because of her. Ciara refused to answer Hope's call and secured a promise from Theo that he also wouldn't answer, no matter what. Later, Ciara fell and was knocked unconscious. Theo panicked when he couldn't wake her. He was torn when Hope called again, wondering if he should go against Ciara's wishes and answer.
EJ questioned Rafe 2 about Nicole's visit and he didn't provide a satisfactory answer. Rafe 2 accused EJ of being jealous. Later, EJ worried that Nicole overheard his conversation with Stefano about Rafe. Stefano suggested they get Rafe 2 out of town while Nicole attended her mother's funeral in Chicago. That way, Nicole would lose access to Rafe 2. EJ and Stefano informed Rafe 2 it was time to leave Salem, but first he had to play out all his goodbyes to make his exit look authentic. Meanwhile, Nicole resisted telling Taylor that she didn't trust EJ. While talking to Nicole, Taylor covered her feeling for EJ. Taylor met with Maggie and admitted that she'd like to have someone special in her life, especially in the aftermath of Fay's death. EJ and Stefano arrived home and found Nicole talking to thin air. They didn't realize that she was having an imaginary conversation with Fay about her warning. "I was telling my mother how much I missed her," Nicole explained. "It was comforting." Later, EJ and Nicole played a cat and mouse game, trying to get information out of each other. EJ told Taylor and Nicole they needed to leave for the funeral immediately.
After chugging down a beer, Rafe 2 decided to ignore EJ and Stefano's instructions to make his proper good-byes. Instead, he wanted to leave Salem immediately. Rafe 2 packed his bags, but was stopped by Will and Gabi, who wanted to arrange an intervention to get Sami and Rafe back together.
Philip informed Chloe that Social Services decided against her having shared custody of Parker. He left to talk to a lawyer and ran into Kate. They argued over Philip's concern for Chloe.
