Susan eats a sundae at Julie’s Place when Kristen calls from Statesville. Kristen says Brady’s coming home today from the hospital and she has to make up her mind. Will she switch places with her or not? Susan says she saw no romance in Chloe and Brady’s future. Kristen calls her gullible. “She wants Brady.” Susan calls Brady a hunka-hunka burnin’ love and is annoyed that her Valentine’s Days sundae is melting while they talk. When Susan hears that they have a build-your-own-sundae each Thursday in prison, with two Maraschino cherries on top, she perks up. Still, she’s not convinced enough to want to live in a prison cell. When Marlena calls, Susan disconnects, leaving Kristen frustrated. Marlena asks Susan to return to her place.
Chloe finds Brady antsy to be released from the hospital. John’s supposed to pick him up. Chloe gives him a little red heart cut out of paper. It’s a Valentine’s Day card.

He says he and Marlena had food poisoning because she decided to make a frittata for breakfast. Brady grimaces, knowing Marlena can’t cook. He’s ready to go home. John says he’ll stay at the townhouse. Chloe vows to visit him.
