Eric reminisces about Nicole to Sarah. He misses Nicole and feels guilty for letting her down. Sarah reassures him. Nicole would want her to find love again. He mentions they never found her body, which makes closure harder.
They start talking about him being the photographer at her wedding. Sarah thinks Rex will ask him to be best man.
Marlena arrives. She hopes she’s not interrupting anything. She asks if Eric has spoken to Sami. No, not for a few weeks. Marlena brings up Eric’s “promise to God.” Sarah asks about it. Eric changes the subject and asks to speak to Marlena privately. Sarah leaves the room.
Marlena says he shouldn’t be the one to document Sarah’s wedding to Rex. He should tell Sarah how he feels. Life is too short. Eric asks her to drop it and warns her not to say a word to Sarah. Sarah appears in the background.
Marlena leaves. Sarah wants to know what he and his mother were arguing about. Eric says it had to do with Will. Sarah presses about his pact with God. Eric changes the subject. She wants to know why Eric won’t be the best man at their wedding. Eric thinks Rex isn’t over the fact he had feelings for Sarah, besides Rex hasn’t asked him to be best man. She admits she heard a little of the argument he and Marlena had and insists he tell her the truth.
