Rafe tells Sami that Stefano is not behind Sydney’s kidnapping. He used truth serum on Stefano, and has come to realize that he doesn’t know who has the baby. EJ shows up at Arianna’s door, and interrupts a moment between her and Brady. EJ seeks answers from Arianna regarding Sydney’s whereabouts. Arianna tells EJ it must be hard to be a suffering parent, and this comment inadvertently drives Brady to go visit Nicole. Later, EJ has a plan to find Sydney, and summons Sami and Rafe to work on it. Meanwhile, Anna puts together a note, and it seems she intends to have an enjoyable Christmas with Sydney. Daniel tells Bo and Carly he solved the mystery of the misplaced corpse. After Daniel leaves, Bo talks to Carly about it and the two go back to his house for privacy. Carly learns from Bo that things may be finally over with him and Hope. Carly owns up to her feelings and admits she is falling in love with Bo all over again. After a blown surprise, Chloe and Daniel count their blessings and profess their love to one another.

Rafe tells Sami and EJ that only one woman in Salem purchased the boots Nicole described as the kidnapper’s: Kate DiMera. When Kate returns, EJ, Rafe and Sami confront her. When Kate provides proof that she took the boots back, the group is deflated. A candlelight vigil on Christmas Eve is arranged in order to appeal to the person who took Sydney. Anna continues to cut out letters for a note to EJ and Sami. Bo doesn’t know how to respond to Carly’s declaration of love. Before he can, Hope shows up. She came to tell Bo that the Hortons want Christmas Eve at her and Bo’s house. Hope gets the feeling she interrupted a moment between Carly and Bo. Carly quickly leaves. Brady fires Nicole’s public defender, and decides to pay for a better lawyer. Nicole recalls hearing the woman’s voice, and realizes she recognizes it. Melanie and Philip each denies to the other that they are having second thoughts about ignoring. Meanwhile, Melanie sees Nathan and Stephanie kissing under the mistletoe. Stephanie lets her assume it meant more than it really did. Once Melanie leaves, however, Nathan tells Stephanie he’s looking forward to more kisses under the mistletoe with her. Off his conversation with Justin, Philip takes Melanie to an inn decorated for Christmas. He not only wants to spend Christmas with her, he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. He asks Melanie to marry him!

It’s Christmas Eve in Salem. Bo and Hope have agreed, at Alice’s urging, to have the Horton Christmas at their house. Doug and Julie are the first to show up, and Bo tells them he knows what Alice is trying to do and it’s not going to work. Meanwhile, Hope runs into Sami and gives her a bit of advice about Sydney. She urges her not to cave, and to do what feels right to her. Hope wishes she had done that and paid the ransom. She expresses that Ciara’s life will never be the same. After her conversation with Hope, Sami visits Nicole. She notes that Nicole has been having memories about what happened to her when Sydney was taken. Nicole reveals her latest memory, and explains she hasn’t said anything to anyone else because it’s too vague. Nicole swears she knows the voice of the woman that took Sydney, but can’t place it. Meanwhile, the mystery woman is with Sydney, and might possibly be having second thoughts about what she’s done. The Hortons hang their traditional ornaments on the tree. Julie and Maggie continue to press Bo and Hope to get back together until Doug loses it, and tells them to lay off. No one might like what’s happening, but it is Bo and Hope’s business and they support their choices. Later, Bo slips out, and Hope fights back tears.

Arianna goes to see Brady to give him a gift. She learns of his helping Nicole with an attorney and is surprised. Brady says he tried to tell her, but she was busy with Gabi. Disappointed, Arianna leaves. Brady finds the small gift she left for him. He opens the box, and rushes out to find her. Meanwhile, Arianna confides in Rafe and he sticks up for Brady. Sami arrives at the pier for the candle light vigil and informs EJ and Rafe that Nicole seems to recognize the voice, but can’t place her. EJ thinks Nicole is blowing smoke. After all the family members arrive, the vigil begins and Sami and EJ make an appeal followed by a prayer from Abe. As the candles are lit, it appears Anna has changed her mind, and bundles up Sydney. After a night of love and passion, Melanie happily accepts Philip’s marriage proposal. It’s Christmas Day in Salem. EJ arrives at Sami’s townhouse to spend Christmas morning with Johnny. There is tension between Rafe and EJ, Sami is devastated to learn the lead ended up being a dead end. When EJ returns home, he receives a note from the kidnapper reading: “I have your daughter. Meanwhile, Anna and Sydney celebrate Christmas together. Stephanie and Maggie convince Nathan to read the Christmas story to the kids like Tom Horton did all those years ago, and Maggie fondly remembers Tom on Christmas. While Nathan reads to the sick children, he spots Melanie’s engagement ring.
