Sami had help. She suggests it was EJ, who was also in the area. Lucas says
no way. He says Sami hates EJ, they were up there to get away from him. He

made a deal to help him get away. Lucas won't hear of it. He thinks his

her father. She tells him that he sounds like Victor. She says if this is
how he treats his friends, she wonders what he does to his enemies. She goes
to leave but he stops her. He says that he is the way he is because it's a
cold world out there. He says he left Salem broken and ready to give up, but
when he went back into combat he realized Claire was everything to him. He
says he is her father and won't give that up. He also tells Mimi it's easy
for her to act like she is Shawn and Belle's friend, but he reminds her of

truth if . . . . he gives her a kiss. She says he used to like doing that
among other things. Shawn goes to kiss her, but she pushes him away and
