Max meets Jeremy at the Brady Pub. Jeremy says Ilsa has found all the girls, but
it will take another day to round them up. He says they'll be at the hotel
tomorrow night. Max says and Rawlings doesn't know? Jeremy doesn't think so.
He says he's arranged for a plane, they have to get them on it and gone, then
they can breath and chill. Max thinks they still need to go to the cops. Jeremy
won't. Jeremy says Max will get off scott free given his brothers are cops,
while he'll go to the grey bar hotel. Max says he won't as he's a Horton,
but Jeremy says with his rap sheet, he'll be put in jail. Max says trust him,
it will be cool. Max says first they have to get those girls safe. Stephanie
shows up and tells Jeremy they should go, beach time, Jett and Chelsea are
outside. Jeremy asks for a second and leaves.
Jett and Chelsea are outside listening to Chelsea's ipod. Jeremy says he needs
to talk to Jett, alone. Chelsea mocks Jeremy for just ignoring her and not
saying hi, but leaves. Jeremy tells Jett he knows he has the hook up, talk to
the cops and tell them that he's trying to make things right. Jett asks why he
thinks he has the hookup with the cops? Jeremy says be straight with him, Jett
claims he is. Jett asks what is going on? Jeremy doesn't want to go to jail,
just tell his cop friend he's ready to name names and come clean. Jett says if
the cops are onto him, what makes him think he's not too late? Jeremy thinks
Jett did go to the cops, but Jett says he didn't. Jeremy thinks Jett sold him
out. Jett says the cops have been onto him for months. Jeremy thanks Jett, but
Jett says he got himself into this mess. Jeremy asks what they know? Jett says
he's on his own on this one. Jeremy says so Jett will just walk away and leave
him hanging? Jeremy says he's saved his life, it's his turn to save his.
Jett says this was their dream, they both wanted to be the youngest guys to own
an airline. Jett says when Jeremy started smuggling those girls in for
prostitution, he killed their dream. Jeremy thinks the cops told him, but Jett
says give him credit. Jeremy asks how close they are? Jett says closer than he
thinks. Jett says if he's serious about doing damage control then get on it
Back in the pub, Max and Stephanie talk. Chelsea shows up, but quickly leaves as
she thinks she's interrupting something here. Max tells Stephanie things got
out of control the other night, he's sorry if he made her uncomfortable, he
shouldn't have gone that far. Stephanie says she was not in control either,
she could have stopped it but she didn't. Max asks where that leaves them?
Stephanie says with a serious problem. She says he's single, she's tied down
. . . well has a boyfriend. She should have stopped things before they got as
far as they did. She says whatever it was, it can never happen again. Max says
never. She says ever Chelsea shows up as they look like they are about to kiss
Jeremy goes into the pub and tells Steph they have to split. He then asks if
something is going on between Stephanie and Max? They brush it off, Jeremy asks
Steph if she's coming or not? Shee's not. Stephanie says this is their last
chance for a beach trip, she wants to go to the beach. He can't and takes off.
Jett and Chelsea walk in, they ask where Jeremy went? Stephanie doesn't know,
she wants to go to the beach. Jett invites Max to come, he says the beach sounds
great. Chelsea smiles and looks at Max and Stephanie.
Roman shows up to see Bo at his place. He's doing some chores around the place
that he's been slacking on. Bo asks Roman what is up? Roman and Bo go inside
to discuss Andre. Roman thinks Stefano ordered Andre to destroy the folio and
make himself scarce. Bo says he thinks Stefano is faking this thing, but Roman
says no. He says the doctors say he's not faking, his liver is failing and the
old guy is about to check out. Roman says Bo doesn't look happy. Bo isn't.
He says him dying now could be the worst thing to happen to them. As they talk,
Roman gets a call. He learns EJ is about to have surgery to save Stefano. Bo
says now they have the upper hand. Bo has a plan, which he tells to Roman. He
wants to get EJ out of the hospital before the surgery and then force Stefano to
end the vendetta to save his life. Roman doesn't know if this will work, they
are asking Stefano to turn his back on his father and his right hand man. Bo
says come on, this guy will sacrifice anyone to save his own life. Roman says
lets go then.
At the hospital, EJ is a bed and is almost about to go in to have the surgery. A
doctor tells him what he's doing is admirable. EJ thinks it is crazy and stupid.
Stefano shows up with Rolf. Stefano's in a wheel chair. Stefano says when he
learned EJ was a match he rejoiced. Stefano says they are the same. EJ says they
have had their differences. Stefano says if he has even the slightest doubt
about this, he must tell him now. He says he won't hold it against him, but
Elvis must be honest with him. EJ says fine, let's be honest. EJ says there
was a time when he worshipped him, wanted to be like him. HE says he was warm
and generous, but in control. EJ says he's come to see how many people he's
hurt. Stefano says so he must pay for his sins. Stefano says he sensed some
reluctance when he was so eager to put up Lexie and Benjamin for this, but not
himself. He tells him however not to act like he's morally superior, he knows
EJ was going to put Lucas Roberts on ice. The Salem PD think it was Andre, but
that caper has his finger prints on it. EJ says it was for the love of a woman,
but Stefano says he did what it took to get what he wanted. Stefano says EJ is a
DiMera, if he can't accept that and him then they will stop this surgery.
Stefano says he wants to leave, he'd rather then die at home alone then be in
the company of someone who is turning his back on his father. EJ tells Stefano
they are more alike then he'd like to admit, but he wants to rid himself of
this curse. HE wants to be a better person, someone capable of loving and being
loved. He says when he looks at Stefano he is terrified. Stefano says there is a
saying, it is better to be feared than respected. Stefano says friends let you
down every time, and he's had love from more women than he's needed or
wanted. Stefano says love gets in the way, women work at the weakness of a man.
He says EJ knows this because of Sami, and Tony has affections for Anna and any
woman with a pulse. He says women have turned Tony into an idiot, is that what
EJ wants? To be a joke like Tony? He asks EJ if he wants to be a man or not,
because a man keeps his word. EJ says he does love him, and he cares about him
very much, he will give him the piece of his liver. Stefano says this means so
much to him. He tells EJ that he's a good son. Rolf takes Stefano back to his
At the Salem Gym, Lucas and Sami are on treadmills. They are looking for Andre
and trying not to look conspicuous. Lucas goes off to by Sami some water. Andre
then shows up and Sami sees him. He has the folio. Sami tries to hide and
watches as Andre heads off somewhere. Lucas returns, she says Andre is here in
the juice bar! He is hanging out in there with the folio. Sami asks Lucas what
the plan is? Lucas was hoping she'd tell him! Sami doesn't know, she thinks
they should just go get it. Lucas decides this is the point where they have to
call her dad. Sami doesn't seem to want to. She goes to the the juice bar and
orders an orange juice. Andre then walks up behind her and asks what the hell
she's doing here. She asks what anyone does here Andre. He says losing
pregnancy pounds? He grabs her and calls her a little twit. He says if she's
thinking of pulling a stunt then think twice, he won't hesitate to snap the
life out of her. As Sami pretends to faint, Lucas sneaks in to steal the folio
from the table where Andre left it. A man runs to help Andre with Sami. Before
Lucas can grab the folio, some blond shows up thinking he's Mr. Fry and
she's been looking for him. Sami pretends to wake up and thanks Andre for
helping her, says he's her hero. Meanwhile Lucas tells the woman she has the
wrong guy here. She says she's sorry, he really doesn't look like he needs a
personal trainer. Lucas again tries to get to the folio, but Andre gets to it
Lucas tells Sami this is it, they are calling her dad. As he calls, Sami
realizes Andre is gone! Roman shows up and says they searched the whole club,
Andre is gone. Sami thinks they blew the one chance to get the folio. Roman is
not happy with Sami. Roman wants them both to go home and watch a dvd or play
tiddleywinks. He says he will put an APB out on them, if they step out of that
apartment then they'll be arrested! Lucas tells Sami they need to go, but Sami
is sure Andre is somehow still here. Roman leaves, Sami tells Lucas that they
have to find Andre. Lucas says Andre tried to kill her, and he'll beat Andre
to it if she doesn't get her butt in gear! Sami then sees a woman with the
folio go into the steam room. Sami says they have to follow her! Lucas says she
can't as she's pregnant, but he'll do it. Sami waits, wondering what is
taking Lucas so long. In the steam room, Lucas confronts the woman, who is Andre
in a wig! Andre pulls a gun on Lucas! Andre tells Lucas he's going to make an
ugly stain on the wall!
Back at the hospital, EJ is about to be given a sedative when Roman and Bo show
up. They have an arrest warrant and tells the doctor to stop. They want to
arrest him for parking violations. EJ says they can't be serious. Bo and Roman
say they are cracking down on this. EJ says they have chosen this opportunity to
follow the rules. He says this tantamount to murder. Roman says the DIMeras
would know about that. Roman and Bo suggest he puts some pants on unless he
wants his butt hanging out. The doctor removes the IV under orders. Bo decides
to go visit Stefano, he hopes his life insurance is paid up! Roman is left with
EJ. Roman tells him to get going. EJ says turn around, this isn't a peep show,
he wants privacy! EJ then sees the sedative the doctor left behind. EJ gets
dressed as Roman reads him his rights. EJ is furious and ends up stabbing Roman
with the sedative then takes off!
Bo goes to see Stefano and tells him slight change of plans. He says there will
be no surgery, EJ has been irresponsible and has been arrested. Stefano says he
was just with his son. Bo says Roman is reading him his rights as they speak.
Rolf says but Stefano will die! Stefano says obviously he wants something. Bo
says end the vendetta and hand over Andre, or cash in his chips.
August 28, 2007
At the hospital, we see a repeat of EJ stabbing Roman with the hypodermic to
sedate him and then run off. Roman falls to the ground. He tries to get up
and get to Stefano. Meanwhile, Bo is in Stefano's room, telling him about
arresting EJ. Rolf says he must have the liver transplant. Bo heard he was
begging people for a slice of their liver. Stefano says he called on the
loyalty of the family, Elvis is proud to be his donor. Bo says well Elvis is
going to jail. Bo tells Stefano to either end the vendetta and hand over
Andre, or prepare for a warm welcome in hell. Stefano says he will not
sacrifice his flesh and blood to the blood thirsty Bradys. Suddenly EJ shows
up. Bo asks where his brother is? EJ says he'll tell him, but he has to be
Stefano's donor. Bo then arrests EJ and puts him in cuffs! EJ says if he
takes him now this is murder! Bo doesn't care. Roman soon shows up, saying
EJ drugged him. As Bo tends to Roman, EJ tells Stefano to give them what
they want, Andre must be stopped. Stefano won't give up Andre, so Bo says
he will die then. EJ asks Stefano if Andre is really worth dying for?
Stefano says he has nothing to say to these people.
Later EJ asks Bo to talk to Stefano. Bo says Stefano choose death over
giving up Andre. EJ says if Andre stays out there then it will be a
bloodshed. Bo doesn't think EJ cares about his family. EJ admits he did
terrible things, things in the name of this vendetta, but Sami showed him
what a family could be and he wants to help. Bo lets him go talk to Stefano.
Meanwhile Roman is looked at and told the sedative will wear off shortly.
Roman is acting odd, telling Bo is Bo short for Boseph?
EJ goes into see Stefano. He tells Stefano that they need to stop playing
these games or he'll walk out this door. EJ asks why he will not turn
Andre in? Stefano says he's his nephew and hasn't turned on him, unlike
EJ. EJ says Andre is a psychopath, he is out there killing people as he
enjoys it. HE says Andre is not here trying to help him. Stefano says EJ has
sided with the Bradys, he is no better than Lexie and Benjy. EJ says Andre
will destroy what is left of this family's name. Stefano says he's doing
what his father asked him to do. EJ thinks it may be a little too much to
have asked. He says Stefano will die, he'll go to jail and Andre will keep
going on killing people, like Renee. Stefano says leave his daughter out of
this. EJ says no, why protect Andre for killing her? Don't let his
daughter's death amount to nothing. Bo comes in and tells EJ his time is
up, he's going to jail. Stefano tells Bo that Andre will be meeting Kate
at the health club to give her the key that ends the Vendetta. EJ thanks
Stefano and kisses his forehead. EJ asks Bo to let him find Andre and end
this without violence.
At the gym, a woman tells Sami that the club is closed and she'll have to
leave now. Sami says she's waiting for her husband to come out of the
steam room. The woman asks to see her membership. She looks for her card but
can't find it. She gives the woman her name, saying she's Mrs. Roberts and
she's friends with the owner. The woman says she'll go look her file up,
stay here. Sami says sure, but runs off the minute the woman leaves.
Meanwhile Lucas confronts Andre, who is in drag and has the folder. Andre
pulls a gun on Lucas and says he's about to make an ugly stain on the
wall. Lucas says just give him the folio. Andre says and let the Bradys
learn how to end the vendetta? Sorry! Andre hits Lucas on the head with the
gun and then starts kicking him while he's down. Lucas says Andre kills
him then Bo and Roman will hunt him down. Andre says that is what he wants!
He is just bait. Andre tells him to get up, but Lucas won't go anywhere
with him. He says Andre can't beat the Bradys, just as Stefano. Andre says
Stefano is going to die and he will take over. Andre tells Lucas he is a
pawn and a fool, now it is time to die like a man. Andre soon hears Sami
coming, he drags Lucas off. She finds some blood and Lucas' wedding ring.
Sami goes to call for help. She calls her dad, who unfortunately is still
drugged from the sedative and doesn't know who Sami is! Sami says it's
her, Sami. Roman asks if her mommy knows she's on the phone? Her mom was
so upset when she called Tokyo last week. She says that was a long time ago.
She asks what Stefano did to him? He says he was stuck with a needle. Sami
asks if Bo is there, Roman says yes. Sami asks him to get Bo, but Roman
passes out! Sami then calls Bo. She tells Lucas is in trouble, they came to
the club to meet Andre. Bo asks what she was thinking!
Back at the hospital, while Bo is busy talking to Sami, EJ steals the keys
to Roman's cuffs and escapes. Bo soon learns EJ is gone. Stefano is
laughing at Bo. Bo says they'll see who has the last laugh. Bo goes to get
Roman and says they have to go now.
Back at the club, the woman returns to where Sami is. She says Sami is not a
member, Kate is and she is not Kate Roberts. Sami says she never said she
was Kate, she is Mrs. Roberts. She is positive her husband is stuck in the
steam room, her father and uncle the cops are coming. She doesn't believe
Sami at all and says it is time for her to go! EJ shows up, he has a
membership card and says Samantha will be his guest. The woman says too
late, they are closed. EJ tries to convince Sami to go with him, but she
doesn't want to leave as Lucas needs help. EJ says he knows. The minute
the health club woman is gone, they run off to look around. Sami shows him
the steam room. EJ says he'll check it out, she should stay here. EJ then
goes into the steam room looking for Lucas. Andre soon shows up. She asks
what he's done with Lucas? Andre says she'll be reunited with him very
soon! EJ opens the door and sees Andre, who pushes him and Sami inside and
chains them in!
Outside in an alleyway, Lucas is in a car and is tied up with duct tape. He
soon wakes up. He realizes Sami is still inside with Andre. Lucas works to
free his hands. He finally gets free of the tape, only to find there is a
mean and very large dog outside!
Bo shows up at the club looking for his niece. He talks to the woman there,
she realizes Sami was telling the truth. Roman then walks in, he's still a
bit nuts from the drugs. Bo explains that Roman usually isn't like this.
Bo asks the woman if he knows where Sami is. She says he left with Mr.
Wells. Bo calls Lucas, who is strapped in the car still. Lucas tells Bo what
is going on, how he's trapped in a car surrounded by dogs. Bo says he and
Roman are here, they are on the way.
Back at the hospital, Stefano is alone in his room and listening to opera.
It is the aria from the first opera his father took him too. Santo shows up
to pay a visit to Stefano. Stefano is shocked to see his papa. They talk
about the opera, how it moved and changed Santo. Stefano thinks his Papa has
come to reclaim him. Santo says no. He says he was a good son, he followed
his wishes, he never doubted him. Stefano says now he is dying and he has
wasted his empire. Santo says no, he wasted it. Santo says Colleen Brady was
the great love of his life, he had to have her, and when he couldn't he
wanted vengeance. Stefano says he did try, but he failed. Santo says no, he
is the one who failed Stefano. Santo says it was his job to protect his
innocence, instead he betrayed him. He says he put him in the middle of
this. Stefano says sometimes he dreams and remembers the time before the
vendetta. Santo says he is sorry. Stefano says sorry? He wasted his life
avenging him. His children has abandoned him. He is dying alone! Stefano
says sorry does not seem enough. Santo says it's not. Santo says he has
come to tell him something. He says it's not over, the Phoenix will rise
again. Stefano says if he is not going to die then why is here? Santo says
he's here to help Stefano fulfill his destiny, he has much to accomplish.
He tells Stefano not to give up. Stefano doesn't understand what he is to
do. Santo then vanishes. Rolf shows up to check on Stefano, who tells Rolf
that the end here! He then laughs hysterically.
At Bo and Hope's, Hope and Steve are having a baby changing race. Kayla
shows up with tea. The doorbell rings, Kayla goes to get it. It's Benjy.
Steve asks how Benjy knew they were here, Benjy just guessed. He needs to
talk to Steve and Bo, but they say Bo is working. Steve and Benjy go outside
for a few minutes to talk. Outside Steve is telling Benjy to slow down,
he's out of practice with signing. Benjy tells Steve that Stefano is
dying, which puts his life in danger. Later they go back inside, Steve
explains what is going on with Stefano. They say it took guts for him to
come here and tell them this. They tell him to hide his car in the garage,
Andre knows what it looks like and they need to get it off he street. They
offer to let Benjy hide out here. Benjy leaves, Steve watches over Pocket.
Kayla thinks he'll make such a good dad, which she whispers to Hope. Steve
knows they are scheming. He says if they want to have a talk then ask away.
Kayla and Hope ask if he likes having Pocket around? Steve says it's all
right, he likes when he wraps his hand around his fingers. HE says he likes
the sound he makes when he's happy. Steve also likes when he falls asleep
on his chest. Kayla knew he'd love being a dad. Steve says whatever makes
her happy. Hope says he's still not answering the real question, does he
want to be a dad again? Honest answer? Both Hope and Kayla want the truth.
Steve says the truth is that life, especially his, is unpredictable. He says
he loves Stephanie and doesn't regret having her, but he still feels
guilty for leaving Kayla and her. She says that wasn't his fault. Steve
fears the DiMeras could take him again. He says it's all he can do to try
and protect what he has. He thinks Kayla did the best she could with
Stephanie, but the damage was done. He says she's insecure and doesn't
trust, he doesn't want to mess up another kid. Soon Steve realize Benjy
hasn't come back, he should be back by now. Hope realizes she didn't
hear the garage door open. Steve runs outside looking for Benjy. Steve
returns, there was no sign of Benjy other than his suitcase. He promises
Kayla they will find him though.
August 29, 2007
At the hospital, Rolf is trying to calm Stefano down. Rolf gets a page, he says
hopefully this news will make him happy and he leaves. Stefano's father returns.
Stefano asks if he's come for him now? Santa says no. Stefano doesn't know
how much longer he can hang on. Rolf returns and says they have found a donor
for him. Stefano doesn't understand. Rolf says it is with the help of his
remarkable nephew. Rolf instructs the surgeon they've fond another donor, the
operation will go one. Meanwhile Stefano talks to his father again, when he
returns. He tells his papa to go away, leave him alone. Rolf asks Stefano who he
is talking to? Stefano tells his father this is his fault. Rolf says nobody is
there? He tells Stefano they have to get him ready for surgery. Stefano keeps
saying he's in this mess because of his obsession with a woman. He tells his
papa to go away. Rolf is trying to get Stefano to relax, take deep breaths.
Stefano then speaks to Rolf, he says the folio must be destroyed, nobody must
know how the vendetta ends, the Brady's cannot find out. Rolf says he will
destroy the folio for him.
At the health club, Andre has locked Lucas and EJ in the steam room. He finally
takes his wig off and wonders where Kate is? In the steam room, Sami is in
tears. EJ tells her to relax, but Sami says she's not supposed to be in here
as she's pregnant. EJ thinks they'll be out of here in no time as she called
her dad. EJ starts taking his clothes off, she asks what he's doing? He says
they are trapped in a steam room, their clothes will make them hotter. He
suggests she do the same. She thinks he'd love that. He gives her a towel
to cover up with. He says he won't look, she is pregnant and needs to keep
cool. Sami cries, she asks EJ if he thinks God would let the babies die? EJ says
of course not. Sami blames herself, she should have listened to Lucas, he wanted
her to leave. She thinks now Andre has done something to Lucas. She bangs on the
door hoping someone, a cleaning crew, must be out there. EJ tries to calm her
down. Sami is convinced Andre has done something to Lucas, but EJ doubts he'd
kill someone in a public place. Sami asks what he's doing to them! She is
having trouble breathing. She asks how long they can survive in here? EJ says a
couple of hours at least. She wonders where Bo is, why isn't he here helping
them. EJ says Bo is a smart man, they'll find them. EJ keeps asking her to
calm down and relax, but she says she can't. She says she can't breath, her
babies can't breath. She says her hormones are all riled up, so if he tells
her to relax one more time then she'll kill him!
In the alleyway, Lucas is still trapped in the car surrounded by the dogs.
He's on the phone with Bo. Bo, still in the club, says they need to get him
out of the car, but Lucas asks where his wife is? Bo says she left with EJ.
Lucas is sure Sami was forced to go with him, something must be wrong. Bo tries
to convince Roman to stay put, but he refuses saying he's the commissioner;
he's giving Bo an order and he's coming. Roman is still doped up. Bo says
fine, they'll go save Lucas together. Back in the alley, Lucas starts his car
alarm to scare the dogs away. Bo and Roman show up to help him. Lucas ask what
took them so long. Bo stops the car alarm, Lucas asks any word from Sami? Roman
says Samantha is great, she really is. Lucas asks Bo what is wrong with him? Bo
says Roman needs a little time to clear his head. Hope then calls Bo and tells
him that Benjy is missing, there was blood found. Bo says he'll be there in
ten minutes. Bo says he has to go, Lucas thought they were looking for Sami?
Roman says he'll help him. Bo says he'll be back as soon as he can. Lucas
begs Bo not to leave him with Roman, something is wrong with him. Roman tells Bo
not to worry, he's got it covered. Bo leaves as Roman gives Lucas noogies!
Roman and Lucas head to the hospital. Roman is finally back to normal. They go
to question Stefano about EJ and where he is. Rolf says they don't know, they
haven't seen him. He says another family member has come forward to make the
donation, so they are preparing Stefano for surgery. Lucas asks Roman who else
would donate a liver and would want Stefano to live? Roman says Andre . . .or
maybe the liver wasn't donated at all, maybe it was stolen. Later Lucas makes
calls, he's convinced Sami still has to be in the gym. He goes to the gym,
Roman goes to meet up with Bo. Lucas asks Roman if he's sure to drive? Roman
says he won't take chances, a unit will pick him up.
Back in the steam room, EJ suggests they play a game to take their mind off this
She says she doesn't want to spend her last moments on earth playing 20
questions. He suggests that is a good idea, but then he says they should play
truth or dare instead. Sami won't play, this isn't a sixth grade slumber
party. EJ asks Sami if that is her natural hair color? She says excuse me? She
says fine her turn. He says wonderful she's going to play! She asks if he set
this up? Is he working with Andre to get them stuck in here. She can't believe
she didn't be this before. EJ asks if she really thinks he did this to make a
move on her? He can think of better more romantic places. She says then he
wanted to save the day again. EJ swears he had nothing to do with this. She asks
what about the other times, rescuing her from the car and saving Lucas. She says
like Lucas says, he's always in the right place. EJ says Andre alerted him to
the car, and she showed him where the meat truck was. Sami says maybe he's
just always getting them into danger then. EJ says he's saved her life and her
husbands a couple of times, he cares for her and what happens to her. Sami says
if that is true then help her get out of here and save her babies. She thinks
Lucas won't be too happy to find their naked bodies in here, it will be his
last memory of her. He tries to help her by fanning her. She says that helps,
she should do it to him. He says she can when he's pregnant with twins. She
says spare her the martyrdom. He laughs and thinks she'd miss him. He says
stop talking, he's sucking oxygen out of the room. EJ then sees the ceiling
fan, he thinks he can short circuit it. He takes her bra and decides to use the
under wire from it. Sami thinks he's getting off on touching her
unmentionables. EJ says it's called a brassiere, but Sami says it's a bra.
He says she used to be a lot more fun. She says it's not exactly a party in
here. He says when they get out of here he'll take her shopping and buy her
whatever she wants, something red and sexy that he's sure Lucas will enjoy. EJ
begins working on the fan trying to short circuit it and shut it down. Suddenly
there is a zap and EJ falls to the ground! Sami runs to his side.
Meanwhile, Lucas shows up and runs into the woman working at the health club.
She again says the health club is closed. Lucas says his wife was here with
another guy, an English guy. She remembers, they left together. He thinks they
never left, they are still here. Lucas demands she help him look for them. They
soon fine the steam room locked. The woman runs for help getting it open, while
Lucas asks if Sami is in there? Sami tells him to hurry, EJ is here with her and
she thinks he's dead.
In an alley, a homeless man finds Benjy, shirtless, in a dumpster with a bloody
sheet over him.
At Bo and Hope's, Kayla is upset when she sees there is blood on the suitcase
of Benjy's. Steve hugs her, he says he promises they will find him and they
will. Steve feels this is his fault, he shouldn't have let Benjy out of his
sight. He feels he needs to go find Benjy, he tells Kayla to stay with Hope and
runs off. Bo later shows up, he fills Hope in on what is going on with Lucas and
Sami. Kayla is afraid for Benjy. Bo says the DiMeras are warped, why would they
go after their own? Hope asks if Stefano would really hurt his own son? Bo tells
Kayla to think positive, he'll put out an APB. Bo leaves to make the call.
Steve returns having seen Bo's car. Steve has something, Kayla asks what that
is? He tries to hide it from her but she grabs it, it's Benjy's bloody
shirt! Steve says he found it down by the docks. Hope says Bo's put out an
APB, but Steve says that won't do good if he's in the bottom of a river! Bo
returns, he says a homeless guy has found Benjy in a dumpster by the river,
he's barely alive, he was wrapped in a bloody sheet. Bo says he's going down
there, Steve insists he go with him. Bo thinks that is a bad idea. Steve tells
Bo not to say he still doesn't trust him. Bo says with Benjy involved, he
doesn't trust Steve. Steve says well they've made a lot of progress. Bo says
he trusts Steve with his sister, his kids and his own life; but he knows how
Steve gets when something happens to those he cares about. He doesn't need
Steve playing vigilante with Stefano. Steve says he only cares about Benjy. Hope
says Steve will only follow him anyways. Bo says fine, but if Steve loses it,
he'll lock him up. Steve says he understands. Steve and Bo leave, Hope and
Kayla stay behind.
Kayla and Hope have a talk. Hope is glad things have worked out for Steve and
he's back to himself. Kayla says deprogramming him was so hard. Hope asks how
she did it? Kayla says all she knows is she hope's she won't have to do it
again. They talk about Steve, Hope realizes that Kayla fears Steve could slip
back to the old DiMera ways. Kayla wants to trust him and wants him to believe
in himself. She says that is why she wanted Pocket, to give him a sense of
purpose. Hope asks though what if he does slip away? She says she worries about
that every day, but it won't happen. She says she just tries to concentrate on
the every day and their future, it's all they have.
At the pier, Benjy is put on a stretcher and taken to the hospital. Steve learns
there was a slice under Benjy's ribs, like a surgical procedure. Steve decides
to go to the hospital with Benjy. Roman shows up, he tells Bo that Stefano is
going to have the operation, he found and new donor. Bo figures out it came from
Benjy. Bo says Roman needs to contact the ambulance and say their patient is
missing part of his liver. Bo is headed to the hospital to stop the transplant.
Back at the hospital, Stefano continues to see Santo and wants him to go away.
Rolf wonders what medicine they have Stefano on. Santo tells Stefano he's been
a faithful soldier, but his work is not done. Stefano asks what more he wants?
Santo says whatever Stefano has left. Stefano suddenly smiles and tells Rolf
that the phoenix will never die! He begins laughing.
Stefano is being wheeled off to the OR when Bo confronts them. He takes the
cooler with the liver section and asks where they found the donor? Rolf says he
already told this to his brother Roman. Bo asks again where they got the liver?
Rolf claims a family member from Italy. Bo says so it's a coincidence that
Benjy was found in a dumpster with a deep laceration? Bo says Benjy might not
make it, he's in the OR fighting for his life. Rolf says Stefano will be upset.
Steve then shows up and grabs the liver from Bo. He says they can't slice
Benjy open and take half his liver. Bo tells him to cool down, but Steve
won't. Steve won't let Stefano get this, he'll flush it first!
August 30, 2007
At the pub, Billie and Phillip meet. Billie has a lead on Lauren, she was
seen at a battered woman's shelter in Tulsa. Phillip says they should go.
Billie says hold it, she says by the time the cops went to check it out, she
was gone. Still it's the first real lead they've gotten. Phillip thinks they
should go then, but Billie can't as the University needs her, the semester
is starting up (no clue what Billie is doing for them). Phillip says he'll
go on his own then, but Billie thinks that is a bad idea. She says he does
need a woman to go with him, someone to say play the role of Lauren's
concerned sister. She doubts these women will give Phillip any answers.
Phillip doesn't know who to take, Billie suggests Belle would be perfect.
Phillip agrees, but then remembers the fight he witnessed between Belle and
Shawn. He doubts Shawn would allow this. Billie says so what if this gets
him on Shawn's black list? Phillip talks about how once again he's chasing
down someone for a kid, this feels familiar. Billie says it will work out.
At Bo and Hope's, Shawn and Belle are there, Shawn is looking for his set of
tools. He doesn't like always having to use Max's, he wants his as they just
feel right. Belle needs to go to the University to get some books, but thinks it
will be okay if she does it in the morning. She goes to call her parents to
check on how Claire is doing. When she's out of the room, Max shows up to see
Shawn. He tells Shawn he has some bad news, he's going to lose the garage, they
are both out of work. Shawn asks why . . . how? Max explains he borrowed against
the garage to finance Jeremy's business as well as a side deal. Shawn gets the
feeling this side deal isn't exactly legal. Max says no, and now it's gone bust
and they will lose everything. Belle returns and sees Max is here. He says he
came to give Shawn some news about the garage. Belle thinks he came to make
Shawn a full partner! Shawn is shaking his head at Max not to tell her the
truth. Max just lets her believe the news is about some new gadget they got in
that will really help business and all. Belle says she needs to go to the
university after all to get her books. She doesn't have her credit card and asks
Shawn for some cash. He gives her some, she says he was so right. She says
living at the pub, paying their own way, it really feels good. She then leaves.
Max warns Shawn, he better tell Belle the truth before she finds out from
Later Max and Shawn sit outside and share some beers. Max has apparently
filled Shawn in on the whole story about the shuttle and the girls. He says once
the girls are safe, the cops will come in, all the books and records will be
taken as evidence, it won't be good and he'll probably end up in jail. Shawn
says he never knows, he could just get a slap on the wrist or something. Shawn
says Max is a good guy, he has a good moral compass. Max wonders how his moral
compass points the right way but he does the wrong thing. Shawn says he's been
there and done that, remember how both he and his dad warned him not to get
involved with EJ last year? Max says it's hard to do the right thing when the
money is so tempting. MAx returns to what he was saying earlier, when will Shawn
tell Belle the truth? Shawn knows he has to, but he can't shake this feeling
that he'll never be good enough for Belle. Max says that is foolish talk. He
says Belle loves Shawn, she went half way around the world with him. He says
Shawn has Belle and Claire, don't lose them. Shawn knows Max is right, he needs
to tell Belle, but this isn't something he can do over the phone.
Back at the pub, Belle shows up having gotten Phillip's text. She sits down,
he tells her about the lead with Lauren. Belle says that is wonderful news.
Phillip then says he really needs a woman to come along to help him get
information from the women at the shelter, he and Billie think she'd be perfect.
Belle says yes, she'll do it. Phillip says and Shawn? Belle says she promised
him that she would help him find his son and she meant it. Phillip doesn't think
Shawn will like this, but Belle says leave that to her. Phillip goes to make
some calls, he arranges for them to fly out tomorrow and be back in the
afternoon. She says Shawn probably won't even miss her, he'll be at the garage.
He thanks her for this and they hug. They they look at one another as if they
are about to kiss!
At the health club, Lucas arrives as Sami screams at him to get them out, and
something is wrong with EJ. Lucas turns down the temperature and says they are
working to get the lock cut. Meanwhile Sami realizes she has to give EJ mouth to
mouth. She says this better not be a stunt to get a kiss out of her! As she's
giving him mouth to mouth, EJ kisses her! She however doesn't know if it really
happened or if she's hallucinating. She continues as Lucas finally bursts in
wondering what is going on. They get Sami out, Sami explains EJ isn't breathing,
he needs CPR! The woman at the club says the paramedics are on their way. Sami
insists Lucas save EJ. He hesitates but gives EJ CPR and saves his life. EJ
comes to and thanks Lucas for saving him. Lucas says now they are about even. EJ
jokes that his lips are as soft as rose petals. Later the paramedics show up and
as they are carrying EJ out, EJ hears Lucas tells Sami he fears in saving EJ, he
ruined their future.
Later, Lucas and Sami are alone as EJ has been taken to the hospital, they
are waiting for another ambulance for Sami. Her blood pressure is down and she
has a low grade fever, they want to admit her. Sami asks Lucas about his comment
earlier, but he tries to dismiss it. She won't let it go. He tells Sami how EJ
wants her, and in saving EJ's life he may have given her over to him. Sami tells
Lucas she doesn't care what EJ wants, she loves him. Lucas says EJ is always
around, always getting to her and he's sick of it. He says EJ is quickly making
his way into Sami's life to take his spot in record time. Lucas says it worries
him that Sami can't see this. He has to wonder if deep down inside her that EJ's
initials already aren't there. Sami can't believe she's hearing this from him.
He reminds her of the letters they read, how Sami thought Colleen and Santo were
fated to be together. He says maybe she and EJ are too. He reminds her how angry
she got when he joked about it. He says it was only a joke, but she was upset,
as if she knew he could be right. Sami says right now destiny is telling her to
smack him! She says the only destiny she believes in is that a troubled young
girl went to her first dance with a military brat, who turned out to be the love
of her life. She says got it? He says got it. She says he lost this and gives
him back his wedding ring, which she found earlier. They are told the ambulance
is here, so Lucas helps her to it.
At the hospital, Steve holds the cooler with the liver and threatens to flush
it before Stefano gets it. Dr. Rolf is screaming that this is murder! Steve says
what about Benjy? He could die too. Bo tries to calm Steve down. Another doctor
shows up, Bo informs him what is going on, that this liver was possibly stolen
from another man in this hospital right now, it was not donated. The doctor
doesn't seem to care, unless Bo has a warrant then the surgery will continue as
schedule. He demands the liver be returned. Bo tries to convince Steve to give
it back, they can't do anything, Steve will only end up in jail. Steve is
furious, he wants Stefano dead, he thinks they can end this now. He grabs a
bottle of bleach and is about to pour it on the liver when Bo grabs him. Rolf
gets the cooler and Stefano is wheeled off. Later Rolf comes out to inform them
the surgery was a success, Stefano will be fine, the phoenix has risen again!
Steve says save it, they've heard it before!
Later, Steve is furious with Bo, calling him a coward who is afraid to do the
right thing. Bo says there are rules to be followed. Steve says the DiMeras
don't follow them, maybe it's time they make their own rules. Bo says so Steve
wants to be like them then? Bo again tells Steve the only thing that would have
happened is Steve would have ended up in jail with a cot and a toilet and
nothing else, while everything continues to go on outside without him there.
Steve says so what do they do? Nothing? Let the DiMeras keep coming after them?
Bo says no. Bo does have a plan, if Steve will listen to him. Steve says he
knows that devious look in his eye, does this plan involve bending the rules? Bo
says into a pretzel! Steve says then lay it on him. Bo thinks that the person
they need to get to is Andre, but obviously they can't. He says they have to set
a trap, something that will lure him out. Bo says they need to off the old man!
Steve thinks Bo is kidding. Bo says it won't be a real killing, they'll fake his
death. Bo says they'll have a funeral and everything, it will lure Andre out and
they will nab him. Steve is in for this. Bo says they'll have to run it by Abe,
Roman and possibly internal affairs. Steve offers to do a little tap dance to
sell it to them!
August 31, 2007
At the pub, Phillip tells Belle that he just spoke to the pilot, they are all
set for Tulsa. Belle says he must be excited. She knows the story, she as to
pretend to be Lauren's sister. Phillip asks about Claire. She says she's
with Shawn. Phillip says so it's all good? Belle says not exactly. Phillip
knows she didn't tell Shawn. He thanks her for doing this for him. He talks
about how except for this kid, it looks like he's in for a lonely ride
through life. She says as long as she's around, he'll never be alone.
Phillip tells her again how she is the best. Belle says she has to go tell
Shawn, and says she'll see him soon.
At Bo and Hopes, Shawn and Hope talk. Hope can't believe the garage went
under, Bo did warn Max not to get involved in these illegal deals. Shawn is
sure something new will come along. She says he's very confident. She thinks
that must ease Belle's mind. . . . he has told Belle hasn't he? Hope says
Belle should know about this. Shawn says she will, he'll tell her when he
gets a new job . . . actually a career. He tells his mom he wants to join the
Salem PD and become a cop. Hope tells Shawn that Belle won't like this, she
won't like sending him off to work in a kevlar vest every day. Shawn says
she'll get used to it, mom did with dad. Hope says you never get used to it.
Shawn says she and dad are cops, it must be in his blood, he bleeds like them.
Hope doesn't want him to bleed at all, she's lost one son . . . she
doesn't want to lose another. She doesn't think Belle will want him doing
work that puts him in danger every day. Shawn and Hope argue over his choice.
Hope says she knows all she can do is pray that the lord keeps him safe and
her phone never rings. Shawn asks if this is her blessing? Shawn says he needs
to apply to the academy yesterday, before Phillip finds out about the garage
and uses it against him with Belle. Hope says Belle is wearing his ring, not
Phillip's. She says he needs to tell Belle the truth and live up to his
commitment to her. He says he will, he'll tell her everything tonight.
Belle shows up at Bo and Hope's later. She's glad she caught him before he
went to the garage. He has time. She asks where Hope is? Shawn says she
stepped out. He is watching Ciara and in exchange she's watching Claire so
he can take her to dinner. She asks what the occasion is? He says their
dreams, the future. She says maybe another night, she's going to Tulsa and
may not be back in time. She explains Lauren was spotted in Tulsa, she's
going to help Phillip as the women at the shelter won't talk to a man. He
asks what about Billie? Billie is setting up the security system at the
university. Shawn asks why not Kate or Chelsea? Why must it be her? He
eventually accepts that she's going, he just wants her to be careful.
Phillip then shows up. Shawn asks if he's here to pick up his flight buddy?
Phillip asks if it's a problem? Belle says no, Shawn is cool with it. Shawn
claims he's glad he has a lead on Lauren, he hopes he finds his son. Belle
leaves to make a call to Claire's daycare. Shawn then tells Phillip he knows
what is going on, he's trying to move in on Belle and take her away from
him. Shawn says he'll use every trick in the book to do it too. He asks
Phillip where the hell he gets off asking Belle to go to Tulsa with him?
Phillip says if Shawn had been upfront about the kid and Lauren, his son would
be with him. Shawn says maybe, but this is the last time he gets Belle mixed
up in his business. Belle returns, she asks what she missed? Shawn says not
much. She says she won't be gone long, Shawn says dinner is at six. They kiss
goodbye. Belle runs out the door, Phillip tells Shawn last he heard . . .
Belle was a free woman, she's not his wife yet!
At Steve and Kayla's, Steve and Kayla are arguing over Steve helping Bo with
this plan of his. She thinks he needs to be thinking about the Pocket. Steve
says he is, he's thinking about ridding them of the DiMeras. Kayla says she
needs to go to the hospital, she promised Lexie they'd look in on Benjy.
Steve asks about Pocket. Kayla says she was thinking of leaving him with
Steve. Steve says he's never done kindercare alone, she's usually there
for him to catch when he falls. Kayla says with Pocket at this age it's all
feeding, burping, diaper change, bath time and nap time. Steve thinks he can
handle it, no problem. She asks if she should leave a list? He says no. She
says the bottles are in the fridge, heat it up slowly, test it on his arm so
it's not too hot. Steve says he can handle it all. Steve tells her to tell
Benjy that he's praying for him. She says she will. She then leaves.
At the hospital, Kayla and Lexie are with Benjy. Kayla says he looks the same
way he did when she and Steve found him. Lexie wishes it was her in this bed,
if only she had volunteered when Stefano asked for a donor. Kayla says she
can't blame herself for this. Lexie does. She wants the best care for Benjy,
she knows that is Kayla. She wishes she was still a physician, this is so
hard. Kayla tells Lexie she'll use her expertise and the two of them will
get him better. Lexie says he already got one miracle years ago when he ended
up with Steve and her. She hopes Pocket is as lucky. Kayla says Steve just has
to make it through day one of daddy daycare. Lexie remembers leaving Isaac
with Abe for the first time. She says nothing happened, she watched through
the window the whole time! Kayla and Lexie talk about how hard it was for
Lexie with Isaac, having to give him up after finding out the truth. She says
it was, but nothing like when he died. She still misses him. Lexie tells Kayla
she is sure that things will work out for her, Steve and Pocket. Kayla thinks
it will help Steve a lot. Lexie tells her how Benjy always talks about how
great Steve was, how he still remembers the night they took him in and how
Steve made him feel so safe.
Later Kayla gives Benjy some antibiotics to treat him. His temp is spiking,
his BP is up as is his heart rate. Lexie is worried Benjy can't fight this.
Kayla says they won't let this man slip away while his evil father gets
stronger every minute! Lexie says the phoenix rises again. Kayla says he's not
phoenix, he's a organ thief and is rebuilding himself body part by body part
to get better. She says she could have pulled the plug on him in Tuscany, if she
only had . . . She says God forbid Benjy doesn't make it, she promises Lexie
that Stefano will be next. She knows Stefano is her father and she is sorry.
Lexie says she feels the same way, her father has taken so much from all of
them. Kayla says he took years from Steve, years they'll never get back. She
wants to make sure this time she and Steve last. Kayla suggests Lexie is tired,
she should go home. Lexie won't, she's not leaving Benjy's side until
he's okay. Kayla knows she's worried that Stefano might try something. Lexie
says since being trapped in that pit, she has slept with one eye open watching
out for Andre. She's terrified for Theo as well. Kayla says they shouldn't
have to face the future with fear. Later Benjy finally comes around, Kayla and
Lexie explain to him what happened.
Back at the hotel suite, Steve is trying everything to get Pocket to sleep.
He's dancing around and playing the harmonica. Pocket spits up all over him!
We are talking projectile vomit! Hope soon shows up, Steve called her for
serious help. He can't get Pocket to stop crying. Hope helps him try and calm
Pocket down. It turns out Steve just wasn't feeding him enough, she says
baby's have tiny tummies and need regular fill-ups. Hope asks Steve how he and
Kayla ended up with this little guy. Steve explains, saying she even named him
Pocket. Hope says it is a cute name, but he will grow out of it. She says
imagine when he grows up and is a big handsome guy. Steve knows he'll need a
regular name, maybe the name his real parents gave him. Steve knows he'll be
gone as soon as they are found. Hope says and if they don't, is he ready to
take on parenthood again? Steve asks Hope if she really thinks he's cut out
for this daddy gig? She does, Benjy thinks the world of him. Steve says a
different time and place, before all the brain trouble. Hope says if he was so
terrified and afraid of this, why did he agree? He says Kayla wanted it. Hope
says so he did it all for Kayla? Pocket means nothing to him? Steve says well he
is cute, but if leaving him here was a test, he flunked. Hope doesn't think
so. She says seeing him with Pocket, it was like watching him with Stephanie all
over again. Hope tells Steve he knows a lot more than he gives himself credit
for. Steve remembers why he always called her sweet thing. He thanks her.
Later Kayla returns home. She tells Steve that Benjy is awake, the antibiotics
worked, he's on the mend. Steve says he knew she could do it. She asks how the
baby is? Steve says sleeping like one. She says so everything is okay? Steve
says right as rain. Kayla asks what he did with her husband? Steve says he's
right here! Kayla thinks he's come a long way, parenting must come second
nature to him. She is impressed. She knows he's done all this for her, but she
wants them to raise a child together. She thinks part of the reason he came back
to her is because he was meant to be a daddy.
Hope returns home , Shawn explains to Hope how he didn't get a chance to tell
her anything. He says Phillip conned Belle into going with him to look for his
son. Hope says he can flex all he wants, if he trusts Belle it doesn't matter.
Does he trust Belle? He says he does. She says then trust in that love and let
all the doubts . .. whoosh . . . go away.
