Philip's private detectives still made no progress in finding Brady. Nicole asks and gets to see him on the subject during a lavish dinner. E.J. is amused that his public display of family harmony in Chez Rouge for Immigration's benefit is interrupted by Nicole, who is clearly impressed and asks about the validity of her marriage to Victor. Nick promises Chelsea he'll make time again despite his demanding energy research and is assured she doesn't mind but supports and loves him still. John agrees to hypnosis from Marlena about his bran-washing, which fails, and holds her to the promise that ends her therapy.
