PREVIEW: Jennifer allows Jack to spend the night; forensics offer new insight into Colin's murder; Chloe heads back to the hospital. SUMMARY: At Jennifer's house, she is dressed for bed and she listens as Jack talks on the phone. He hangs up, telling her that Jo will bring Abby home, so they do not have to go pick her up. Jennifer begins rambling on and on about having no food in the house, market is closed, but there is a 24-hour deli that is open... Jack stops her, saying that they have to talk before Abby comes home. Jennifer is very upset, and feels guilty because she doesn't know why she thought she could take on Colin alone. Jack tells her that he knows she was only thinking of saving his life. Jennifer tells him that she blames herself because she knows that she only did it to save the man she loved. Jack tells her that Colin victimized her, making her feel she had no other choice, just as Lawrence Alamain did years ago when he raped her. Jennifer says she has always thought that was the absolute worse time in her life, but now, this is. She questions what she did, and Jack asks how he can help her, but she tells him that she doesn't think he can. He tells her he should go but she asks him not to. Jack talks of the New Year, and how they saw it in together, and it is a new beginning. They kiss, and share an emotionally charged moment and just then, Abby walks in. They all share in telling each other Happy New Year, and Abby asks Jennifer if it would be OK for Daddy to spend the night, since it is late, and he'd have to go home alone. Jennifer says sure it's OK if he wants to. Jack makes sure it's noted that he wants to. Jack and Abby race upstairs to get ready for bed and Jennifer just watches and smiles. She then puts her hands together, looks up and says, "Thank You". She turns out the lights… Meanwhile, at the Wesley house, Nancy is relaxed on the couch, when the doorbell rings. Craig answers the door and it's Brady. They want to make dinner but Craig and Nancy tell them that they can handle it and Craig suggests they go for a walk. Nancy is concerned about Chloe going out in the cold but Craig assures her everything will be fine. So, Brady and Chloe leave. Once alone, Nancy tells Craig that she knows something is bothering him, and he tells her that he thinks it's important to get her medical records from when she gave birth to Chloe. They could be important…but the papers need her signature. She eventually agrees, but she makes sure she tells him that if she ever thought for a minute that Chloe was his daughter she would have never given her up… Chloe and Brady are on their walk and they wish on a shooting star. Chloe talks about Colin and how life can be suddenly cut so short. Brady kisses her and says he got his wish and wonders what she wished for. She tells him that she wished for gray hair…this confuses him, but she tells him that she wishes that she will live long enough to acquire it. They walk and suddenly see a chopped down tree, and Chloe wonders what happened to it…She remembers back to the carved initials, "P & C forever" Brady asks if the tree had special meaning, and she tells him about it. She then talks about that part of her life being over, and a new year is upon them, with good things. They kiss, and she bends over to pick her gloves up, and her nose is bleeding. Brady worries about this and Chloe says she feels fine. He asks her if she's sure, maybe they better just tell Craig to be sure. Chloe then remembers that this whole thing started when she first got a bloody nose, before she knew she was sick…She agrees to go home, but she turns and looks at the tree again and thinks, "nothing is forever"… They arrive back at the Wesley house and Craig comes downstairs and they tell him what happened. Craig thinks it's a good idea to do another blood test, just to be sure. He tells them to go on to the hospital, he will tell Nancy he has to check on a patient and meet them there... At the Police Station, it is a zoo and Marlena comes to see Bo, but he is in a meeting. She says she will wait, just as John shows up, both saying how they were trying to call the other. John apologizes for storming out of the penthouse and mentions Tony being brought in for questioning. Marlena, not surprised, tells him of Tony's visit, looking for John. She continues on, saying that she thinks the exhumation of Daphne DiMera is a mistake, that she is a doctor, and she studied the DNA results, and the sooner John accepts the results as true, the better. It will not change the man he is...and he should let his mother rest in peace. John tends to agree with her and he says he just doesn't want to hate anyone… In Abe's office, Bo says he thinks Colin's letter saying if anything happens to him, to check on the Brady family, is a fake. He says that since everyone knew that Bo and Colin didn't get along that doesn't matter and that was just a way to point blame. Roman agrees. The lab results arrive, and it proves that the letter is authentic, it is Colin's handwriting and his fingerprints were all over it. Roman wonders if maybe Colin could have been coerced into writing it. The DA barges in, insisting that the Brady brothers be taken off the case. Abe tells Palmer that it is HIS department, he has no authority, and to go talk to the Commissioner. Roman says he wasn't even at the wedding, and Bo says all his movements have been accounted for. Palmer wonders about the rest of the Brady's, do they all have alibis? Abe says they are all in the clear. Palmer says he will leave, but warns that if a Brady turns out to be responsible, he will NOT cut a deal… John and Marlena come in, and get filled in on the investigation. They learn of the letter, the lab results, of Sami's involvement and how she ran to Tony. Marlena can't believe any of this, but Roman also tells them how Sami stole Roman's gun, accidentally fired it in the Salem Inn parking lot, and then returned it. Her story checks out. John realizes that once more that the Brady's are a target of the DiMera's. Roman tells John he is not a Brady, but John replies that anyone who attacks a Brady also attacks him, because he is a Brady in his soul… Bo and Marlena talk about Hope. He tells her about Hope's strange behavior, beginning with when they were decorating the Christmas tree, and she went into basement, and he heard a "blood curdling scream", over a supposed mouse. He tells her how she doesn't seem to want Zack at home, and how she left the wedding. Marlena suggests that if Hope is having problems, she may feel Zack is safer away from her. Bo agrees that is possible. Marlena asks if perhaps Hope came upon something at the wedding that scared or bothered her, but Bo replies that it could not be cause she would have told him. Marlena tells him that it would be a good idea for the family to be supportive… Meanwhile John and Roman talk of their pasts, and how they have both suffered at the hands of the DiMera's. Roman agrees, but says at least John was able to keep the woman he loved. John suggests they work together, and Roman finds no fault in that, as they both look through the window to Abe's office and see Marlena talking to Bo. Marlena comes out, and tells John what a special man he is, her husband, her hero, and they kiss… The photos from the crime scene arrive, Bo, Abe and Roman talks of perhaps Victor being involved. He knew about the contract that was put out on him, and perhaps could have hired someone? They agree to bring Victor and Nicole in for questioning as soon as they return from their honeymoon. Bo hates the idea his father could be involved. Roman then says he wonders why (Grandpa) Shawn wants to have a memorial service for Colin, but Bo reminds him that family is important to him, and that Colin was a cousin. They wonder if Tony would show up. They state that the more they narrow down the suspects, the more it looks like Tony. Bo moves some names around on the Suspect Board, pinning Victor's under Tony's, and takes a long look at Hope's before he moves it to the bottom... Fade to black & white…moreless
