AIRED:
PREVIEW: John and Marlena learn the truth about John's biological father; Hope continues to have "visions" of Larry. SUMMARY: In Collin's hotel room, he looks at a photo of him and Jennifer in his wallet. He wonders why he ever let Jennifer get away, and he vows that he will not make that mistake again. He says he will have her and he won't let her go. He has fantasies about he and Jennifer making love. He looks at the picture again and thinks about his new life with her in the New Year…He is anxious to have Jennifer for himself – and to get rid of Bo and, vows to himself, to be rid of Jack as well… At the penthouse, Marlena and John are alone understanding Belle and Brady's absences, but missing them. John says he wished Sami and Will had stopped by because he wants Sami to feel comfortable there. He confides in Marlena that he still loves Sami as if she were his real daughter – and heck, for a while, he thought she was. John is very anxious because he is still waiting for Shane's call with the DNA results – he is so worried that he is Stefano's son. He says he thinks that Stefano used him to take Marlena away from her family. Marlena tries to convince him that he had nothing to do with Stefano's plans. The two begin kissing, and John thanks her for supporting him while they wait for the test results. The two of them then have flashbacks to what they thought was their last Christmas together in Aremid. Later, Marlena disappears into the kitchen and brings out some chocolate pudding parfaits with whipped topping for them to enjoy. Marlena starts to feed it to John, but she ends up throwing it at him and getting it all over his face! The two have a whipped cream fight and enjoy licking the spoils off the other's faces! Suddenly, in the midst of all the fun, the phone rings. John knows it's Shane because it's on the private line. They bid each other happy holidays and then John asks for the DNA results. We see John with a straight face and then he hangs up. Marlena asks him if he is OK and he tells her that the DNA shows that he is not Stefano's son. He explains that Daphne DiMera and Phillemina Alamain were sisters, and that Daphne had an affair and quietly gave birth to a son and gave him to her married sister and her husband, Leopold Alamain, to raise. He says they adopted him, and he became Lawrence's brother and their legal son. This means that John and Lawrence are cousins, which is how the previous DNA test showed them as relatives. John believes that since Daphne cheated on Stefano and tried to give her son up in secret that Stefano must have learned this and came after him later in life. John is still concerned – if Stefano isn't is father, then who the hell is??? Marlena says they shouldn't think about that right now, and they head upstairs. She surprises him by putting on a "Mrs.' Claus" little sexy number and the two of them make love. Afterwards the two talk and John is relieved that he is not a DiMera. Marlena tells him that they will face whatever comes their way from now on together… At the Horton Cabin, Larry prepares dinner still using the canned food he found and he proposes a toast to the Horton Family for letting him use their vacation home for the holidays. He then says he didn't get a gift – yet, but he will - Bo's death. He then fantasizes about kidnapping Hope again and telling her that Bo is dead – but he didn't kill him - cousin Collin did... At Jennifer's, Jack gives her a Christmas gift. She says that's funny. He right away says no, it's not funny, it won't squirt water at you. She says it funny because she got him something too. Jennifer opens her gift and it's a Santa Claus holding a pen and paper list. She looks stunned, and Jack looks confused. She just tells him to open his. He opens it up and it's a Mrs. Claus! The two of them are a perfect pair! Jack tells her that everything about her has become a part of him, and he suggests they begin again. Memories of Christmas past, including the one where Jack comes down her chimney dressed as Santa and then him proposing to her. They put Abby to bed, and then they discuss the risks of getting involved with Collin and what's in jeopardy if she messes up. Jennifer assures him that she has to do this for their family. She also says this is about them as well, and they continue to have flashbacks of Christmas pasts. The two of them end up in a very passionate kiss. They stop and look at each other smiling and kiss again. Jack then picks her up off the floor, as the two exchange a very "satisfied" look (see notes below) and he starts to walk to the stairs. Just as they get to the stairs, Abby comes down and wants to know why dad is carrying mom? They tell her that mom stubbed her toe, and daddy was carrying her upstairs. Abby is confused and says she just wanted a glass of water. They take Abby back to bed, and she asks them to stay with her until she falls asleep. Jack hesitates and says OK. Jennifer snuggles up on the bed with her, admitting being tired too. Jack watches both his girls sleep, and tells them he loves them and they each respond they love him too as they both fall asleep. Jack smiles, wishing them a Merry Christmas and softly retreats… At the Brady house, Zack has gone to sleep, and Shawn and Belle have taken off for a drive. They joke that if that's the case, they won't be seeing him for a while. Bo gives Hope her big present, which is himself. He promises to continue to love her with his entire being for the rest of his life. He also has one more thing, the music box with their song playing in it. They flashback to when Bo first gave Hope the music box, and they dance to the song, and then kiss. We see another flashback to when Bo gave her the bearskin rug and Bo wonders where it is? Hope says they'll have to find it. Suddenly, Hope sees Larry watching them outside and she freaks out. She says he is out there! Bo runs outside, but no one is out there. Bo asks her whom she thought she saw? Hope covers and tells him that she thought she saw Collin outside, but it must have been a neighbor looking at their lights. They snuggle in front of the fireplace, and are soon headed upstairs…At the end, we're treated to the two in bed enjoying each other as Christmas music is playing in the background…fade… Episode Pictures courtesy of koolpages.com.moreless

      • The December 30th issue of Soap Opera Weekly Features "Jack and Jennifer Admit their love". (Quotes here are from the article) Today, the duo tries to make love, with a twist. Jack scooped up his ex-wife and attempted to carry her upstairs to the bedroom. "This is the first time Jack has ever picked up Jennifer," notes Matthew Ashford (Jack). "In the past he'd always say, 'My back! My bad back!' Both Missy (Reeves, Jennifer) and I realized that. In fact, Missy wanted to say, 'Hey Jack! You've been working out.' Because Jack could never lift her before." Ashford and Reeves suggested tweaking their lines to accommodate the situation, "but they didn't want to break the moment," notes Ashford. "So instead we gave each other a look like, 'Hey!' We're hoping viewers catch it."
