MURDER AT MIDNIGHTPREVIEW: Belle lets out a blood-curdling scream after finding a dead body at the Kiriakis wedding. Also, Bo finds Hope with blood on her hands. SUMMARY: The summary is written a little different today. Since 95% of the episode took place at the Kirikas mansion, I thought the best way to write it up was in the exact order it took place… Part One: The guests gather and wait for the start of the wedding. Chloe and Brady slip away to the front hall as Bo and Jennifer exit to get something to drink. Chloe comments on how tense everything is. Brady tells her he wishes it were over already so they could be alone… Sami walks in the dining room and pulls out the gun and says, "if there was any other way…" Just then, Belle walks in and wants to know what she's doing… Upstairs, Nicole is still reading the letter from Collin and he tells her the 5 million dollars was only a down payment and how she should save her pennies. He lied to her about there being no copies of the tape and he will be back for more. She doesn't realize Victor is standing there, and he wants to know who the letter is from… Back downstairs, Fay talks to Brandon and she tells him she is worried about the wedding to and she also feels it is a mistake, but he needs to fake it... Bo hands Jennifer a drink and they discuss what she did. Bo promises to make Collin pay for what he did and goes off to find him... Jack approaches Jennifer and tells her what Collin told him earlier, about the two of them sleeping together. He asks her if it's true and she looks to the floor… See the replay of Hope walking outside for some air and she overhears Collin on his cell phone, saying he is going to kill Bo Brady tonight. He turns around and she hallucinates that it is Larry Welch pointing a gun at her. She runs back inside the house and runs into Shawn, which startles her… Part Two: Shawn catches up to Hope and wants to know what is wrong, but she assures him that she is okay and rushes off, but he is clearly worried about her. Standing alone, she says aloud, trying to convince herself that she what just happened is all in her head – there is no gun… Fay can tell that something is bothering Brandon and wants to know what. All he tells her is that Collin Murphy has hurt Nicole and he may be a DR, but he is still scum… Jack begs Jennifer to tell him that it isn't true, as she lowers her head, apologizing and tries to explain... Back in the dining room Sami hurries and puts the gun back into her purse just as Bo comes in, asking if either of them have seen Collin. They tell him no, and he leaves. Once he's gone, Belle asks Sami what is wrong. Sami covers and says this is the first wedding she has been to since her and Austin and she is just upset. Belle tries to comfort her and asks if everything is OK with her and Brandon. Sami tells her she will make sure it is. Belle then asks her if she wants to sit together during the ceremony, but Sami suddenly tells Belle that she has to take care of something and rushes off. As she's leave, Shawn comes in. Belle comments on Sami's weird behavior and Shawn says that everyone there is acting strange… Back upstairs, Nicole hides the letter from Victor as he asks why she is so upset. She covers and tells him that the letter is from her mother. He wonders why that would make her upset and she says her mother told her not to mess it up. He wonders why Fay would say that? Nicole remembers sleeping with Collin and then later seeing the tape. Once again, Victor asks her what is wrong. But suddenly, there is a knock at the door. Victor opens the door, and it's Bo, asking to speak to Victor alone. They step outside and Nicole still looks panicked… In the hallway, Bo asks Victor if he's seen Collin and Victor tells him no and wonders why he's looking for him. Bo tells him that Collin has hurt some people he loves and is going to stop him. Victor tells Bo to let him handle Collin. Bo wonders why him? Victor tells him that he has his reasons and he assures Bo that he can take care of it and Bo leaves. Once alone, Victor calls Nico and tells him to "take care" of the good doctor – now. Back downstairs, Chloe and Brady go outside and share a kiss as Collin watches from the bushes, gun in hand. He says to himself for the lovebirds to get out his way… Part Three: Victor returns to Nicole's room as she is beginning to get dressed. He suddenly grabs her and asks if she is committed to him and asks if she has anything to confide in him. She tells him that she loves him and looks forward to starting their new life together. He thanks her for re-assuring her love for him and he kisses her on the cheek. He says he is looking forward to giving her the life that she deserves and walks out. She picks up the letter again and reads it again. She says she has been waiting for so long for the life that Victor can give her and swears that no one will take it away from her. Downstairs, Fay and Brandon continue to talk about how nasty Collin is. Brandon tells her that Collin has hurt both Nicole and Sami. He tells her that he needs to take care of him and decides to go for a walk. Fay begs him to not do anything foolish. He agrees and Fay leaves to go freshen up…Brandon walks the other way and asks a man at the door for his coat…Jack and Jennifer continue to talk and Jennifer eventually admits that she slept with Collin. Jack asks her if Collin forced her to do what she did. She tells him no and tries to explain, but he tells her that he can't listen anymore and can't even look at her and walks off. Jennifer breaks down into tears and Hope comes by and wants to know what's wrong. Jennifer asks her to get her out of here and the two walk off… Bo enters the living room, still looking for Collin, and asks Henderson if he's seen him. Henderson tells him, very bluntly that he can't keep track of individual guests and excuses himself to the kitchen. As Henderson is leaving, Victor comes around the corner and tells him to tell the staff to be on the lookout for Collin Murphy. Bo tells him good luck, he's searched every room and closet in the place and can't find Collin. Just then, Victor sees the chairs are empty and wonders where his guests are. He then yells for Henderson to round up the guests, he's ready to get married. Back outside, Brady and Chloe are still kissing, with Collin watching from the bushes. Henderson comes outside to gather them and tells them the wedding is about to start. They head inside and Collin goes around to the window wondering where Bo is. He looks inside and sees Bo with Victor. Collin says, "best man…try dead man." Part Four: Hope and Jennifer are standing outside, and Hope wants to know what is wrong. Jennifer tries to explain. She rambles on about that on Christmas her and Jack said they loved each other. Hope is happy to hear this but can't understand why that makes her upset. She says it's Collin. She tells her that she actually heard Collin say that he was going to kill Jack and how she had to do it to save him and now Jack hates her. She says it doesn't matter what it takes, she will make it right and she takes off… Hope stands there looking off deep into space and she remembers hearing Collin's phone call and him saying he was going to kill Bo… Inside, Henderson does his best to get the guests in place. Bo is worried because he doesn't see Hope anywhere but Victor asks him to stay and wants to start the wedding… Back outside, Collin is still looking in through the window, gun still in hand. The music starts, but there is no Nicole. Victor asks Henderson to find out what's going on but comes back empty. Victor asks Bo to say something, he's going to check it out. Bo explains that there has been a delay but will get going soon. Bo asks Shawn to go look for his mother. Brady and Chloe wonder what's going on and Brady jokes that maybe her hair is messed up or maybe she gained a pound and her dress doesn't fit…The guests just wait and the justice of the peace asks Bo if there is a problem and Bo chuckles and says it is a big house, maybe the bride got lost. Back outside, Collin prepares and he suddenly hears rustling in the bushes. He turns around and has a panicked face… Part Five: Bo tells the justice of the peace that he must leave to go and find his wife and son and runs into Victor and Nicole just as they are the living room. Nicole doesn't look too pleased to be going through with this all of the sudden. Bo tells Victor that Hope is missing and he is going to look for her, but Victor insists that he stay by his side during the ceremony. Bo agrees. Bo announces that the wedding will begin and the music stars. Victor walks Nicole down the aisle, still not looking too happy. She almost stumbles and looks as if she is going to faint when they almost reach the alter. At this point, the only guests that are seated are Fay, Belle, Brady, Chloe and Marie. Hope, Shawn, Jack, Jennifer, Brandon and Sami are all nowhere to be seen. The justice of the peace starts the ceremony…The words, "dearly beloved" fade into the ending when he pronounces them man and wife and tells Victor kiss the bride. He kisses Nicole, but she still looks very shaken up. Everyone applauds. Suddenly, Shawn stumbles in at the back of the room, rubbing and shaking his head and appearing very disoriented. Bo sees him and congratulates Victor and approaches Shawn. Bo thinks he's acting this way because he couldn't find Hope. Shawn tries to talk, but Bo keeps cutting him off telling him that he feels the same way whenever Hope is out of his sight. Bo tells him not to worry and to go have a good time and he will go and find his mother. Even after Bo walks off, Shawn still seems very disturbed… Part Six: Everyone is congratulating the couple, but Nicole is extremely fidgety. Belle approaches Shawn, who is still distraught. She tells him that the wedding was nice but he didn't miss anything special. She realizes that something is wrong and thinks he's worried about his mom. She says his dad is looking for her and he is still freaking. She volunteers to go with him and look for Hope. He agrees and takes her hand and they walk off. Victor, with his hand on the back of her neck, bluntly asks Nicole why she was so late for the wedding. She just looks off as Fay approaches them and congratulates them. She tells Nicole that she is worried about Brandon because he left before the ceremony and hasn't come back yet. Nicole tells her not to worry, there is nothing to worry about anymore… Brady and Chloe are glad it is all over and Chloe wants to know if they can leave. They go up to congratulate Victor and Nicole and Brady tells them he has to take Chloe home and they leave. Fay suddenly notices that Nicole isn't wearing her veil. Nicole very coolly says that she forgot it. Fay seems a little surprised by this…Brady and Chloe walk out the front door, and the camera pans to the ground and we see the veil lying in the snow... Part Seven: Brady and Chloe return to Brady's loft and they both scream (literally) about how bad that wedding was. They are glad to be alone and Brady can't help but worry about Victor making the wrong decision. Chloe wonders if Victor really loves Nicole. Brady says someone has to...after all, she IS beautiful (if don't know, Kyle Lowder (Brady) and Ari Zuker (Nicole) are married in real life). Chloe says sure, if you like that type. Brady says this is his type and kisses Chloe. Brady wonders what to do now and Chloe drops some hints of how they can celebrate. But Brady says first thing is first and he pulls out party hats, sparkling cider and noisemakers. They have some fun, and lots of kissing… Back at the wedding, Fay tells Nicole that she is going to look for Brandon and walks out. Victor tells Nicole he can't believer she forgot her veil and he won't tolerate that type of lax behavior now that they're married. He tells her he knows that's not why she was late. She assures him that she just needed more time, as she told him already. He tells her that she's lying. Fay walks outside, and runs into Jennifer and asks her if she has seen Brandon. Jennifer tells her no and Fay walks off… Jack approaches Jennifer and she begins to apologize. Jack tells her he doesn't want to hear it if it's about Collin. He tells her that he wants to just forget about Collin. She tells him that she can't. She says, "he's always gonna be with me now, always…" Part Eight: Chloe and Brady kiss and wish each other Happy New Year. They discuss resolutions and she says she is just going to live in the moment and take it as it comes. He asks if he can join her and she says she is counting on it. He tells her he has confetti and they both take a handful and throw it in the air. They begin kissing again…Back at the wedding, Victor and Nicole get more congratulations then Victor grabs her by the arm when she tries to leave. He tells her that he knows why she was late. Outside, Fay is walking around and is yelling for Brandon. Then we seem Sami returns to Roman's house and takes the gun out. She says "I did it for us, Brandon"… Shawn comes back inside the house and asks Victor and Nicole if they've seen Hope or Belle. He tells them he can't find either one and he and Belle split up to look for Hope. They tell him no and he walks off. Jack and Jennifer came back inside and are now standing in the foyer and he asks her if she wants to be with Collin. He wonders this because she said Collin will be a part of her. She says no, she never wanted to be with Collin, she hoped and prayed for to be dead. She then tells him that her prayer had been answered. Jack looks confused… Outside, Belle hears Fay yelling for Brandon and she begins yelling for Hope. Bo rushes in the front door at home and calls for Hope, with her coming out of the kitchen. He explains that they've been looking everywhere for her. Back at the mansion, Belle is still looking for Hope and when she goes around the corner, she screams at the top of her lungs…she has just found Collin's lifeless body in a puddle of bloody snow... Back at the Brady's, Hope isn't saying anything, she just rubs her head. As she does this, Bo notices blood on her hand and asks, "What happened to you?" ...Fade to black.
