At the hospital, EJ shows up to meet Steve. They are in a common area. Steve
wants EJ to get him out, but EJ has a problem. It seems Kayla accused him of
having Steve kidnap JOhn and take his kidney. Steve swears he didn't tell
Kayla, she must have assumed it. EJ says she is a problem and he is going to
have to deal with her. Steve gets angry and tells him not to touch a hair on
her head! The guard checks on things, but EJ assures him that everything is
fine. Steve tells EJ he'll do whatever he wants, he'll be a good soldier, just
don't hurt Kayla. Steve also tells EJ to get him out of here. EJ says that
will take time, it seems Kayla wants him to get well and she has friends in
powerful places. Steve says so does EJ. EJ says he has to go, he has other
things "gestating" right now. He tells Steve not to call him again.
After he leaves, Ella Kraft shows up and confronts Steve about stealing her
cell phone. He says he's sorry, she can't blame him for trying. She orders
Steve to be taken to his room and restrained. He's dragged away screaming
"No, not the straight jacket!"
At the church, Sami tells Celeste that she can't be serious. Celeste is,
if Sami wants to get rid of EJ then she'll have to kill him. Sami says she's
no killer. Celeste tells her to think of the people she loves, the people EJ
could hurt. Sami says she can't kill another man, but Celeste says this is
Satan they are talking about, not a man. Sami says he's still Lexie's
half-brother. Celeste says and he may have killed her! Celeste promises to
help Sami, together they will rid the world of Stefano's heir. Sami asks how
they do this without being caught. Celeste doubts the police will go looking
for EJ's murderer. Sami says they will, she knows her father, he'll consider
it his duty. Celeste tells Sami that she has something EJ wants, herself!
She says Sami needs to promise to give herself to EJ if they meet up
somewhere, a rendez-vous. Sami says so what, she lures EJ away and kills
him? Sami says she won't do it. Celeste says then godspeed and good luck.
At Mythic, Sami shows up to see EJ. She tells him that she'll do it,
she'll have the amnio. However she says there is a condition, something she
wants from him. She asks what happens if the baby is Lucas'? EJ promises her
that if it is then he'll leave her alone. However if it is his baby, then
that means they will have an unbreakable bond. Sami says there will be no
bond between them. She leaves and makes a call to someone, saying she needs
At Billie's, Chelsea can't believe that her mother and Nick slept
together. They want to explain, but she says she doesn't want to hear the
details of their sex games. They tell her it wasn't like that. Billie says
it was the night Steve wrote her that note. Billie says she was upset, she
drank a whole bottle of wine. Nick says he came looking for her to tell her
about Lonely Splicer that night, but she wasn't home. He says Billie was in
bad shape and he knew she shouldn't be alone. They say it just happened.
Chelsea says she should have known this wouldn't work out, Billie could
never take the place of her real mother. Billie says she is her real mother.
Chelsea says no, she's nothing to her. Chelsea heads to her room as Nick and
Billie discuss the fallout. They hope she'll cool down and get over it, but
she shows up with her suitcase and says guess again. She says she's getting
out of here, she can't be here anymore. She then heads off as Billie is in
Billie and Nick call around. Nick calls Abby and warns her that Chelsea
found out, by accident. They can't find Chelsea, so Nick tells Billie to
call the police. She says and say what "Is slept with my daughters
boyfriend so she ran away?" Billie then wonders how she will tell Bo
about this. Nick thinks she has to, Bo will know what to do. He says call Bo
up and go see him. Billie realizes she has no choice.
At the garage, Max ends up asking Abby out to dinner as a way to thank
her for everything. HE wants to go to Chez Rouge, but she says no! She says
it's so expensive, they should just go to Buddy's Burger Barn. Max wants to
take her some place nice, so she suggests the Penthouse Grill. After they
leave Chelsea shows up looking for Abby. She sees the phone book open and
the ad for the Penthouse Grill had been circled.
At the Penthouse Grill, JEd and Willow are having dinner. Willow shows
him the check she got, which she says is for a new legit job. She thinks if
they move in together it will save them both tons of money. Jed wants more
information on this job of hers. All she will say is that it's not illegal.
Later she asks him to take her check and hide it under her mattress at the Y
Abby and Max show up at the Penthouse Grill. They sit down and are having
a good time. Jed shows up to say hello. Max invites him and Willow to join
them, but Abby makes it clear that is not a good idea. After Jed goes back
to Willow, Abby asks Max why he wanted to invite Jed over? She thought this
was a date? Before he can say anything she is phoned by Nick and Chelsea.
Later Max tells Abby that this is a date. He says he likes her, she is a
beautiful woman. Maggie then shows up and Abby panics. She goes to see
Willow and Jed, apologizes for her attitude earlier and invites them both
over. Willow says Jed should go, she has to do an errand.
Jed joins Abby and Max, Abby sits Jed very close to her. When Maggie sees
them she assumes Jed is Abby's date and says take care of my niece! Later
Chelsea shows up, so Abby heads to the bathroom to talk to her. Jed lets Max
know that Abby likes him, she made that clear. Max says Abby may like him,
but her aunt doesn't.
In the bathroom, Chelsea cries to Abby about what has happened. She wants
to leave town, but Abby says that is a bad idea and people would miss her.
Abby suggests Chelsea talk to her dad, but Chelsea doubts he'll care and say
she brought this on herself. Abby doesn't think so. As Chelsea cleans
herself up, we see Willow spying on them in a stall. Abby and Chelsea leave
and Willow steals Chelsea's hairbrush, which she left behind. Later Chelsea
calls Bo and says she's coming over to the house to see him. Willow hears
this, looks at the brush and smiles.
March 13, 2007
At the YWCA, Jed puts Willow's check under her mattress as asked. EJ shows
up pounding on the door. Jed answers and EJ demands to know Jed is. Jed says
none of his business. EJ says Willow is his business, explain now or explain
to the police sunshine. Jed explains that this is his sisters room, he is
Willow's brother. EJ suggests Jed leave, but Jed says he has to lock up.
EJ says he'll take care out that. Jed leaves, assuming EJ is some
official. EJ then decides to find out where Mr. Cool put that check. He
looks under the mattress and finds the check. He ends up burning it and
flushing the check.
Sami shows up at Billie's place. Nick is waiting there in case Chelsea
comes home, Billie is out looking for her. He starts explaining, but Sami
says she doesn't care . . . well she does, but she doesn't have time to
hear it all. She says she needs Nick's help. She needs a report showing
Lucas is the father of her baby, he can do that right? He asks if she's
saying that Lucas isn't the father? Sami says he is, but there is this guy
giving her a hard time as he thinks he's the father. Sami says he's not,
she need proof. He says get an amnio. Sami doesn't want to, she just needs
his help. Nick says he could lose his job, he's sorry but the answer is
no. Sami says nobody will find out, but Nick says he hears she is a magnet
for trouble. She says not anymore, but he thinks she must be in trouble if
she's asking him to do this. Sami says maybe it is just the teeniest of
problems. She admits okay it is a big problem, they are talking about her
child, her marriage, her future. She begins crying, which he asks her not to
do. He says she wins, sort of. Nick says he will get a blank report for her,
she can do whatever she wants with it. Sami thanks him and hugs him for
doing this. He says he's working tomorrow morning, but Sami needs it now.
Nick says he said he'd stay here and wait for Chelsea. Sami says she'll
stay here and he can go to the lab. Nick says that isn't a bad idea,
Chelsea would leave if she came home and found him here. Sami says good, he
can go to the lab and she'll stay here. As they open the door, they are
shocked to see Lucas. Lucas asks Sami what she's doing here? Nick says he
needs to do an errand and runs off. Lucas asks what is going on, why is she
here? He says he thought she was coming home from the church for the video
and chocolates, but she didn't. He says he saw her car here when he took
out the trash. He is worried about her. She understands and says she's
sorry, she feels like she's driving him crazy. Lucas says he's not mad,
but tell him what is going on. He says if it is about him or the marriage
then tell him, but if it is something else then maybe he can help her. He
says if she can't talk to him about this then he'll understand. He says
he'll start believing it isn't about them if she sees a professional.
Sami says like a shrink? He asks what she says? Perhaps her mom can
recommend someone. She says she's pretty lucky that he still wants to
marry her. He says nothing could stop him from standing at that altar with
her. Lucas says they should go home and watch the video. She says she
can't, she has to wait for Nick. Sami says it's about Chelsea, it's
some girl thing and they are worried about her. She says she'll be home
soon, just keep dinner warm for her. Lucas leaves.
Later, Nick arrives with the blank report for Sami. She thanks him. She
promises that she will never forget this. He says forget what? She says
right. She tells him that she owes him. She then runs off. After
leaving Billie's place, Sami runs into EJ in the hall as she's holding the
fake report in her hand. She tells him to stop sneaking up on her, she'll
mace him next time. He says he still lives here. She hopes that changes soon
and says she's sick of looking at his scruffy face. He says he wants the
results of her amnio. She screams at him about that. EJ says calm down as he
doesn't want to raise her blood pressure. As Sami walks off, she faints.
EJ catches her and screams for Lucas. Lucas shows up, he wonders what EJ did
to her. Sami comes to and says she's fine, she's just a little light
headed. She says she didn't eat earlier, that is it. She says she's
fine, she just needs a minute. Sami sees the report is on the floor. Sami
insists she is okay. EJ asks Lucas to have someone look at Sami, make sure
the baby is okay. Sami says she is fine as is the baby. EJ says he hopes she
feels better and leaves. After EJ is gone Sami quickly gets the paper. EJ is
watching from behind the corner and is smiling.
Billie meets with Bo at Chez Rouge. Billie tells Bo that Chelsea ran away,
and this time it is her fault. Billie reminds Bo of telling him about the
guy she had a one night stand with. Bo remembers. Billie says she never said
who it was, but he knows the guy, as does Chelsea. Bo says she didn't
sleep with Nick Fallon did she? Billie tells him to hush, as he basically
screamed this. Bo says this happened after she got that letter right? Billie
says yes, she drank a lot and Nick showed up. Bo says it happened and he's
not judging her. Bo says she needed a shoulder, he was there, it happened,
no hard feelings. Billie says Nick gets that and has been great. Billie says
Nick cares about Chelsea and she cares about him, until this. Billie says
Chelsea found out and she ran away. Billie says he knows Chelsea, when
Chelsea gets hurt she gets herself into trouble. They talk about Chelsea and
how Bo wanted nothing to do with her after Patrick's statement. Bo admits
that was an overreaction on his part. Billie says Chelsea needs him, she
needs her dad. Bo says maybe but who knows, last time they spoke . . .
Billie's phone rings and it is Abby. Abby tells Bo that Chelsea was headed
to his house and may be there. Bo decides to find out.
Hope is home with her doodlebug. She says she has her daddy's eyes and
nose, but the Williams smile. Hope finally names her Ciara Alice. She says
Ciara is the queen of queens, Irish royalty. She says Alice is her great
grandmother and head of the Horton family. Hope says she will make both of
those strong ladies proud. Hope decides to put her down for a nap.
Chelsea arrives outside Bo and Hope's. She still has her suitcase. She hopes
her dad is home, if she can't talk to him then she doesn't know what
she'll do. Chelsea starts having second thoughts about seeing Bo, she
thinks he'll just slam the door in her face. She says she can't blame
him, she pushed everyone away and there is no going back. She says she has
to find someplace else, anyplace else. She decides to leave, but stops to
write Bo a note. She writes Dear dad, I'm leaving tonight, but before I
go I have to tell you this. She writes I'll always love you and I
wish that things could be different, I love you so much. As she writes
the note, Willow shows up and spies on her. Chelsea continues to write her
note, saying how she wanted a new dad so bad that she pushed too hard. She
says she would trade places with Zack in a moment if she could. She says she
is sorry for making a mess out of so many people's lives. She says she
loves him and always will. She leaves the note in the door and says
Goodbye Salem, Goodbye Dad. After she leaves, Willow shows up and
heads to the door. She's about to pick the lock when the phone inside
rings. She runs off to hide.
Inside, Hope gets a call from Bo. Bo asks if Chelsea came by? Hope says
nobody has come by or called. She asks if something is wrong? Bo says
Chelsea got rough news and could have run away. Bo says she mentioned to
Abby that she might come by their place. Hope says maybe she's on her way
now. Bo says he'll be home soon. Hope tells Ciara that her sister is
coming over so they should go upstairs and change her.
After Hope heads upstairs with Ciara, Willow breaks in. This time HER phone
rings so she runs off to answer it. It is EJ calling her. She asks if he
wants her to get caught. He's glad to find out that she is keeping up her
part of the bargain. She says she's doing the job now. He says he won't
keep her, have fun.
After the call from EJ, Willow breaks in and goes looking for Hope's
jewelry. She hears Hope upstairs saying Be right back sweetie. Willow
goes to hide as Hope comes down to the living room. She grabs what she needs
and runs back upstairs. Willow then makes her way around the house with a
candle for light. She ends up grabbing some jewelry, but drops it. She sets
her candle down to pick up the jewelry. The candle ends up catching some
curtains on fire. She tries to put the fire out with water from a plant, but
she ends up running off. She says she knew this would come in handy and
drops Chelsea's hairbrush before leaving. After Willow leaves we here Hope
calling out Bo, is someone there?
Chelsea heads to the garage to try and find Abby or Max. They aren't
there, but Jed shows up. He says nobody is home, he was looking for Abby
too. He asks if she's okay? She says she's fine, she just came here to
see if she could crash. He says so she doesn't want to go home, what is
the problem? She says the problem right now is him. She says she doesn't
need his help. He says if she is nice to him then he could probably open the
door for her. She asks why he'd do that for her? He says for her charm,
why else. Jed breaks into the garage and lets Chelsea in. She thanks him,
even though she doesn't like him. He asks if there is anything else she
needs, since he loves to be punished. She just wants to sleep. She says
she'll be gone before the sun comes up, nobody will know she's here. She
also thanks him, she had a bad day and didn't mean to take it out on him.
Jed says forget it and he leaves her. Chelsea heads into Max's office. She
pulls up a chair and throws a blanket over herself. As she is sitting there,
her phone rings. Bo calls her and asks where she is? Bo says Billie told him
what happened, they should talk. Chelsea says nobody can fix this, she's
leaving town. He says her problems will go with her. Bo says he'll pick
her up and take her to his place. She thought he didn't want to see her
again. Bo says that was a mistake, even Hope said he should give her a break
as they've all done things they are sorry for and in the end, nobody is to
blame. Bo says Hope wants to help and so does he. He says tell him where she
is and he'll come get her. She says she doesn't believe him, mom
probably put him up to this. She says she's sick of them lying to her. She
says they all call her a liar, but they do the same thing to her. She says
she's leaving, she's going someplace where nobody knows. Bo begs her to
tell him where she is going. She hears Billie in the background and knew mom
put him up to this. She says her bus is here and she's leaving. She then
Back at Chez Rouge, Bo tells Billie that he thinks Chelsea was bluffing
about the bus, there was no noise in the background as they were talking.
Billie still doesn't know. She thinks Chelsea will attract trouble. Bo
says they'll go look for her and they will find her. Billie thanks him.
Back outside Hope's, Hope has the baby and calls for help as there is a
fire. She says get someone here soon as the fire is still small and can be
At Chez Rouge, Bo gets a call from Hope as he's about to leave with Billie
to look for Chelsea. She tells him about the fire. She says someone broke in
and did this, they could still be here. Bo says he's on his way.
Willow goes to her place and hides the jewelry in the refrigerator. She goes
looking for her check, but it's not under the mattress. She wonders where
Nick is laying on the couch at Billie's saying how sorry he is about what
happened. Meanwhile, Chelsea is trying to sleep at the garage.
Back at Bo and Hope's, the fire is out. Bo, Hope and Billie go in to check
things out. Billie suggests they stay with her, but Bo has a hotel booked
for the night. Hope wonders who could have done this to them? Bo says good
question. The camera pans to the brush on the floor.
March 14, 2007
Bo is at the house speaking to the fire marshal. He goes outside and tells
Hope and Billie that they'll know what started the fire soon. Hope knows it
was arson, she heard someone downstairs and she knows the door was jimmied.
Billie wonders if it could be Chelsea. Hope asks why she'd think that? Hope
asks Bo what he's not telling her? Hope asks if Chelsea is involved? Hope
remembers Bo called her and said Chelsea would be stopping by. Billie says
Chelsea has a key doesn't she, she wouldn't have to break in. Bo says no, he
took the key away. Billie says then she wouldn't have knocked or rang the
bell. Hope says Billie brought Chelsea up, so what happened? Billie says
Chelsea is leaving town, she's not here, she wasn't here tonight. Hope
asks why she is leaving town? Billie says she and Nick had a fight, something
bad happened and she is leaving town. They don't seem to want to tell Hope
what really happened. Hope knows something more is going on here than Chelsea
having a fight with her boyfriend. Billie says it was her, she is the reason
Chelsea ran off. Billie says she had a one night stand with Nick. Hope can't
believe this, she asks Billie if she's that desperate? Billie says she was.
She says she just got dumped, she drank a bottle of wine and then Nick showed
up. Hope says so Chelsea found out and paid them back by setting their house
on fire? Billie and Hope begin arguing and slinging accusations back and
forth. Bo suggests they stop this and not jump to conclusions before talking
to Chelsea. Hope says she just can't believe Billie would sleep with her
daughter's boyfriend. Billie says and she takes responsibility for what she
did. She says for now, Chelsea is out there alone and she needs help. They all
agree to help try and find Chelsea.
Abby meets Nick outside the garage. She says Jed called her, Chelsea locked
herself up in the office. Nick says at least she hasn't left town. Nick asks
Abby to let him in, but she says he needs to figure out something to say to
her first. Nick realizes Abby is right, he needs to find something to say to
her. He doesn't know what to say to her. Abby goes in to see Chelsea first.
Abby tells Chelsea it is only her, so Chelsea lets her in. Abby talks to
Chelsea, saying she has to go home. Chelsea refuses to go back to Billie's
bordello. She says her mom is dead to her. Abby says so what will she do?
Chelsea says get enough money to leave this town and go far away. Nick soon
walks in and says he won't let her run away. Chelsea can't believe Abby
lied to her, she thinks she's surrounded by liars. Abby says she just hoped
that she and Nick could come to an understanding. Chelsea says she understands
that she never wants to see Nick's lying face again. She lays into Nick, who
says he's been a good friend to her. Chelsea says that is why this is so
hard. She says he's made her believe in herself and others, he's been a
freaking superhero. She says now he's nothing but a liar to her. Nick says
she made some mistakes. Chelsea says well because of his mistake she has a
porn going through her head of her mom and her boyfriend. Nick says her
boyfriend? He says most of the time he treated him like crap. Chelsea tells
Nick she wants nothing from him anymore. Nick offers up his debit card to
prove how much he cares about her. He says she can take his credit card and
skip town. She says it won't do her any good without him and his pin number.
He says he'll go with her, but she doesn't trust him not to sell her out.
Abby leaves them at this point and makes a call. Later Nick tells Abby that
Chelsea has agreed to let him drive her to the bus station so she can get a
ticket to Chicago. Abby thinks this is a bad idea, he's sending her to a
homeless shelter. Abby decides she will stop Chelsea from leaving. Chelsea
asks what she'll do, tie her up. Abby says she did get a badge in the girl
scouts for tying knots. Abby wonders what she gets for being her best friend?
Chelsea says she'll send her a postcard. Abby says she can't leave.
Chelsea says the memories aren't enough to keep her here.
Billie, Hope and Bo go back to Billie's. Chelsea still isn't home. Bo has
had Roman put a watch out for Chelsea, he had to claim she was a witness to a
crime. Billie doesn't like this. She asks him to find Chelsea first. Bo then
gets a call from Abby, who tells him where Chelsea is. Bo says he is on his
way. Bo suggests Billie stay behind, Billie is the last person Chelsea wants
to see. Bo thinks she could just run if she sees Billie. Billie agrees.
Bo takes off and Hope follows. In the hallway, Hope asks Bo for the truth,
does he think Chelsea started the fire? Bo says a few hours ago he would have
thought this was EJ, but this fire has amateur written all over it. He says if
someone wanted to get them, they would have burned their house down. He says
if it was someone in the heat of the moment . . . . Hope says then it has
Chelsea written all over it. Bo wishes he could trust his daughter, he wishes
he didn't think this. Bo says when he finds her that he'll say he loves her
and he's sorry he doubted her. He hopes it will give her the strength to
tell them the truth. Bo leaves and Hope heads in to see Billie. Billie tells
Hope she really is the worst mother in the world. Billie looks at a bottle of
wine saying it is what cost her Chelsea. Hope says she isn't a bad mother,
she gave up a lot to try and make a relationship with Chelsea work. Hope says
she is a good mother. Billie thanks her. She says she and Chelsea were just
making real progress and now this. She says she doesn't know if she can
trust that Chelsea didn't start the fire. Billie says the minute she and Bo
learned about the fire both she and Bo thought it was Chelsea. Hope tells
Billie that life is too short to hold onto the hurt and anger, she has to let
it go. Hope says if she can't then the bottle will be all she has to hold
onto. Hope suggests they both get rid of their bad habits together. Hope helps
Billie poor out the booze left in her place.
Bo arrives at the garage as Chelsea is saying to Abby that the memories
aren't enough to keep her here. Bo asks if he's enough to keep her here?
Chelsea thinks Nick stalled her so Bo could show up, but Abby says she is the
one who called Bo, not Nick. Bo says he just wants to help her. Chelsea says
she wants to get out of this town. Bo says why didn't she stop by the house?
Chelsea says she did, nobody left the lights on for her so she wrote a
note and slipped it under the door. Bo says no note was found at the scene.
Chelsea says what scene? Bo says there was a fire at the house, a fire that
could have killed Hope and her baby sister. Bo explains that Hope and the baby
are okay, but this was arson. Chelsea asks who would do something like that?
Chelsea soon realizes that Bo thinks she did it. Chelsea lashes out at her
dad, saying the detective solved the case in record time. Bo tell her to stop
it. He says this has nothing to do with her, Nick or Zack. He says this has to
do with a crime at his house. He needs to know when she was there, who she was
with and where she went. He needs the truth, not the version according to
Kate shows up at the church, she is to do a reading for Midnight Mass. The
priest says he believes God called her here for another reason. He directs her
to Phillip, who is in the chapel praying. She goes to him. Phillip was praying
for Claire and lit a candle. Phillip says he got information, but he doesn't
know if he should believe it. He says Claire may not be dead, she could be
lost out there. Kate tells Phillip if she is still alive them someone will see
her and recognize her. Phillip doubts the pacific islands get the latest amber
alerts. Phillip says he has thought about bugging Marlena or Bo's phone, but
Victor told him that was too risky. Phillip says that is why he is here
praying. Phillip says he has to face it, he failed Claire. They soon begin
arguing about Victor and his advice to Phillip. Phillip says dad wanted to
make him a man, he told him if he wanted Claire then he'd have to be
ruthless. Phillip says he had to tell Victor the truth when he came home
without Claire. He says Victor could barely hide his contempt. Kate says
Phillip will never satisfy Victor. She says Victor wants him to be just like
Victor, but he never will be. Kate says Victor loves him for the man he is and
the man he's become, though he may not admit it. Phillip says some fine man,
he's lost his wife and daughter. Kate says he won't get them back by
acting like Victor. Kate tells Phillip he's not like Victor and never will
be. She thinks it is time for him to remember that and she knows just how he
should begin. She tells him to extend an olive branch to Bo and Hope, that he
doesn't want to pursue this all or nothing agreement. Phillip says that
would be like giving up, a Kiriakis doesn't surrender. She says he is a
Roberts too. She says he tried it Victor's way and that got him nothing. She
says she's having dinner with Billie and Chelsea tomorrow, he should join
them. She says he needs to change tactics. Phillip says thanks but no thanks,
he wants to deal with this on his own. She says stop being such a martyr. He
jokes that this is the place for it. Kate says for months he's talked about
wanting a family for Claire, well she's handing him one. She begs him to
come to dinner, lay a foundation. She says tomorrow night, 7'o'clock, Chez
On an island, Shawn is running around looking for help, screaming his daughter
needs a doctor. A man shows up with a gun, points it in Shawn's back, and
asks who the hell he is. The man says the bar is closed, he thinks Shawn is
trying to steal his booze. Shawn says he's not a drunk or a thief, he and
his girlfriend got washed up in the storm and his little girl needs attention
or she could die. The man suggests Shawn lead the way.
Belle, Shawn and Claire are with the guy, whose name is Duck. He says is no
doctor though. A woman shows up and asks her dad what is going on. Belle
explains they need a doctor. Gabby, the woman, tells her Dad to go get Dock
Mulder. She speaks in French to her dad that this is a matter of life and
death. Belle speaks French, this worries her as she understood. Gabby tells
them she hopes the doctor can help as the closest hospital is a good two hours
away. Gabby gets some water for them, Claire's temperature is 103 and
rising. Shawn and Belle worry about Claire. Belle wonders what they tell this
doctor. Shawn says they'll claim they were on vacation. He says first
they'll take care of Claire, then they'll deal with the questions. Gabby
returns with some more water. As they try and cool Claire, she is screaming.
Shawn asks about this doctor. Shawn wonders why he is practicing way out here?
She says he's lost his license. She says most of the people who live here on
Tinda Lau are outcasts or fugitives. She asks which ones they are? Belle says
they were vacationing on his boat, the storm hit and they got washed over.
Gabby suggests they go up to her room and Belle change into something dry.
Shawn thinks it is a good idea. He holds Claire as Belle and Gabby leave.
Later the doctor shows up to check out Claire. Shawn and Belle are both in dry
clothes, as is Claire. The doctor gives her some penicillin to knock out the
infection. He then says that is fifty bucks for the house call. They don't
have anything, but Gabby says they'll pay. Duck says what does she mean we,
they aren't giving them money. Gabby says she'll take it out of her tips.
She pays the doctor. She then suggests they get Claire some food, she has some
milk and bananas! After the girls go, Shawn addresses Duck as Sir and
says that he doesn't know how to thank him. Duck says nobody calls him sir,
his name is Duck. Duck asks Shawn when they are leaving? Shawn says as soon as
Claire is 100%. Duck asks where he'll stay? Shawn says here? Shawn offers to
do dishes or anything he needs. Duck says sorry kid, he got his help and his
fifty bucks already, that is all he's getting. Duck thinks he doesn't need
any extra help. Gabby, Belle and Claire return. Gabby tells her dad they could
always use help. Belle says Shawn is good with mechanics. Duck says he
couldn't keep his own boat from sinking. Gabby tells them they have plenty
of rooms here. Duck thinks they shouldn't get too comfy.
Later Belle and Shawn discuss Gabby's offer. She knows Shawn doesn't want
them to stay in one place for too long, but Belle says it's been so long
since they slept in a real bed. She begs him to take Gabby up on her offer.
Shawn hugs her and says they'll find a way to make this work.
March 15, 2007 On the island, Gabby talks with Shawn. Shawn asks for two coffees, she
offers him a full breakfast. He turns her offer down. She tells him no
offense, but he looks like hell and could use the food. She doesn't know why
he won't accept her help. He tells her that he appreciates what they've done
for them already, but as soon as Claire's fever breaks, they will be
leaving. Belle soon shows up with Claire, he fever is gone! Shawn takes
Claire into his arms, they are thrilled. Gabby once again pitches her offer
with Belle there, they can stay here and help her out. Shawn again says no
thanks, they will be leaving soon. Belle tells Shawn that he can leave, but
she and Claire are staying right here. Belle asks Shawn why he won't accept
their help. Shawn says the look that Duck gives him reminds him a lot of the
disapproving "you'll amount to nothing" looks that Victor gives
him. Belle says he has proven himself to her, that is all that matters.
Gabby begins quizzing Shawn on boats. She has him tie a knot for her, then
she asks how he'd go about repairing a boat. Gabby says she has a broken
boat she needs fixed. She offers the job to Shawn, saying the parts could be
here within a week. She says a lot of people on this island could use help
with their boats too. Belle says Shawn will take it! Shawn asks what they do
until the work starts? He won't sit around for a week. She says they can
both help out at the bar and restaurant. Shawn will only accept this if it
is okay with Duck. Duck says it's not okay! Gabby tells her dad that he
knows they can use the help. Duck says his daughter runs the place, he's
just the owner, whatever. It is settled, Shawn and Belle will take a room in
exchange for working. Shawn thinks Duck doesn't like them, but Gabby says
her dad gives the tough guy vibe, but deep down he's a softy. She says when
the Tsunami hit he had everyone staying here and wouldn't take a dime from
them. She suggests they go rest up now. She even offers to take Claire off
their hands and feed her. Shawn immediately says no! Belle tells Shawn that
she trusts Gabby. Shawn apologizes, but Gabby says it is okay. She says
hopefully he'll trust her more when he gets to know her better. After they
leave, Duck tells Gabby to stop wasting her time with them, they are a
couple. Gabby says she didn't see a ring on her finger.
At Willow's, Willow returns home and looks for her check. EJ shows up,
she knows he took it. He admits he did. She says she did the job. EJ says he
knows, and almost burned down Bo and Hope's house. She says it's okay, she
pinned the crime on someone else, they are in the clear. She asks to be
paid, he can pay her in cash if he wants. He says no. She says but she did
the job, she got the jewelry. EJ says he doesn't care about that tacky
stuff. She realizes he was never going to pay her, that is why he postdated
the check. He tells her let this be a lesson, always deal in cash and up
At the mental institution, Kayla visits Steve, who tells her to
leave. She refuses and wants to know what is going on, why is he doing these
things for EJ. Steve plays innocent, but Kayla says don't lie to her. She
says she saw the sign-in list, EJ came to see him. She demands to know what
EJ wants, if Steve won't tell her then she'll go to EJ herself. They fight
and argue, Kayla doesn't want Steve to screw this chance up. He wants her to
just leave him alone, he's told her that from the beginning. She says she is
fighting for them and she never thought she'd say this, but he is a coward.
She wishes there was a spark of the old Steve. She wonders what he is
planning, to break out and go run more errands for EJ? She asks how he
thinks Stephanie will feel about that. Steve demands she not bring Stephanie
into this or else! Kayla asks if that is a threat? Kayla says Stephanie asks
about him almost every day, what is she supposed to tell her? Steve says
make up lies, but Kayla says she won't do that. She threatens to tell
Stephanie the truth if he doesn't shape up. Later Steve grabs Kayla from
behind as an orderly shows up. HE puts one hand over her mouth and the other
in her back. He claims he has a knife and will use it if the orderly doesn't
get out of his way. Steve makes it into the hall with Kayla. He then shoves
her into the room and locks both her and the orderly in. Steve makes his
escape as Kayla screams at him.
At Billie's, Sami and Lucas are with Billie. They are waiting for Chelsea
to come home, she's being questioned at the station. Right on cue, Chelsea
walks in. They ask how she is. She says great, dad thinks she set the fire.
She says she's still out of here, she won't stay here. Chelsea says she made
such a huge mistake thinking she could replace her real mother with Billie.
Chelsea says she is a Benson, she was raised by two loving parents who were
tragically killed. Billie cries that she made a mistake and she's sorry.
Billie says she wishes she could take away her pain, she'd die for her,
which is what Chelsea probably wants. Chelsea asks if they are done here?
Billie can't have her sleeping on a park bench, where will she go? Lucas
asks Bo and Hope's? Chelsea doubts they want her living under the roof they
think she burnt down. Lucas and Sami say she can stay with them. She decides
to accept the offer. Before she leaves, Billie tells Chelsea that ever since
she took her in, she has been the one to forgive her when no one else would.
Billie tells Chelsea to try and extend the same consideration to her.
Chelsea leaves with Sami as Billie cries to Lucas about how she's a failure.
EJ arrives at Billie's place as she's with Lucas. He heard about the fire
at Bo and Hope's. He thinks this is a huge opportunity for her security
system. Billie can't believe he wants her to make a hard sell to Bo. Lucas
lectures EJ, saying Bo and Hope are family and they won't use this to their
advantage. EJ apologizes and leaves.
In the hall, EJ runs into Sami. He asks how that amnio is coming along,
daddy is waiting for the good news. Sami tells EJ that he is not the daddy
and they are not having a baby. She says it will take a least a week for the
results. Later Lucas shows up as Sami hugs him and they head into their
apartment together. EJ smiles and watches them from his own apartment.
Back at Billie's, Billie is cleaning up and is stunned when Steve shows
March 16, 2007
At the mental hospital, Kayla is on the phone making calls about Steve to see
if anyone has seen him. Roman shows up, he got her call. Roman says Steve is
dangerous and they need to get him off the streets. Kayla says she thinks she
knows where Steve is, he is with EJ. She thinks that EJ orchestrated this
whole thing. Roman says there is one other possibility, he may have gone to
Billie. She says she thought about that, but things didn't end well with
Billie. Roman says she needs to stop thinking about the Steve she knew, this
one is a stranger and could feel more comfortable with Billie. Kayla agrees to
Steve is at Billie's place. She asks how he is. He says not so good, Kayla
and Bo had him thrown in the state hospital. He says he broke out though, they
were going to keep him their permanently. She asks what he needs from her. He
says he needs money, clothes and a car. He says he can't trust anyone but
her, he hopes. There is a knock at the door, Steve says not to answer it. She
says it could be Chelsea, they had a fight and she has to see. Steve says get
rid of her fast. Steve hides and EJ shows up. EJ asks if he could take her
out? He has a meeting at the Penthouse Grill and thought she could join him
afterwards. Billie says Chelsea is here, they are talking. EJ says that is
fantastic, so he leaves them. After EJ leaves, Steve asks how long she and
Wells have been seeing one another? She says they aren't seeing each other,
they are working on a project. Steve says so it is just business? She says
yes. He hopes she's telling him the truth, he needs to put his faith in
someone and would hate to think she'll sell him down the river too.
Later the phone rings, Billie begs Steve to let her answer it as it could be
Chelsea. Billie answers and it is Kayla. Kayla asks Billie by any chance has
she seen Steve? Steve is literally face to face with Billie at this point.
Billie says she hasn't seen him, she's been stuck in bed with the flu all
day. Kayla tells her that Steve escaped from the hospital and could be
dangerous, so if she hears from him then get in touch with her. After getting
off the phone with Kayla, Billie tells Steve that she doesn't have clothes
but says she can get some from Lucas'. He thinks she may call the cops while
she's there, but she says she is only trying to help him. She says he said he
trusted her. He says he wants to, but he can't. He says find something here
for him. She says she doesn't have men's clothes. She thinks she may have
some old sweats. Steve finds a map and plans their escape route. He says if
someone catches up with him then they won't take him alive. Billie is
petrified, Steve realizes she is scared of him. Steve says he's sorry. He
says the nuthouse did a number on him. He says he's sorry he is scaring her.
He's also sorry he hurt her. He says they were friends once. He says he
needs that friendship now. He asks her to help him. She says get dressed,
she'll pack food and they'll hit the road.
Back at the hospital, Roman and Kayla continue to wonder where Steve is. Kayla
still thinks EJ has him. Roman says he'll call Mythic and find out where he
In a car, Celeste meets with Benjy! She tells Benjy that she needs his help,
EJ is out of control and they must stop him once and for all. Celeste says EJ
has shown an interest in Sami's child. She says he's not the fatherly
type, so she needs to find out what his true motives are. Benjy tells her that
a baby is an obsession with the DiMeras, Stefano considers the baby a gift
from God. Celeste asks what that means? Benjy doesn't know, but it doesn't
bode well for Sami.
Chelsea and Sami are out to dinner at the Penthouse Grill. Chelsea is
complaining about her family, but Sami says she's is a Brady and they are a
great family. Chelsea wonders why Sami is being nice to her. Sami says she
sees a lot of herself in Chelsea, they have a lot in common. Sami says when
things don't go right for them, they scramble to fix them and sometimes make
mistakes. Sami tells her not to give up on herself of the family. Sami asks
Chelsea to be her bridesmaid. Chelsea asks why, last time she was the worst
bridesmaid ever. Sami says she was the worst bride, this time it's a fresh
start for both of them. Sami says this will be the wedding to end all
weddings, she wants it to be a celebration like no other. She remembers she
has to call the videographer, they are having the wedding filmed. She asks so
will Chelsea be a part of her wedding? EJ shows up and says so wedding
planning hey. He wonders if she's taking on a lot. She tells him to mind his
own business. He says her happiness is his business, they are friends. He
doesn't want her to get her hopes up given her track record. Sami asks if he
has a reason to be here other than making them lose their appetites? EJ
leaves, Chelsea says he creeps her out. Sami again asks Chelsea if she will
accept. Chelsea can't, she just can't face all the people she's
disappointed or have been disappointed by. Sami says she gets that. Chelsea
feels she's not meant to be a part of this family. Sami says she can be,
trust her. Chelsea says her life turned around because she saved Lucas, she
can't wait for a roof fall on her dad. Sami tells her that she can't shut
out the world. Chelsea asks what she does then? Sami says hold her head up
high and be her bridesmaid. Sami says the family can be a pain in the ass, but
they are still family. Sami says a real hero is holding your head up high even
when your heart is breaking. Sami says besides, she can flirt with the
groomsmen and make Nick jealous. Sami says plus it will make her happy.
Chelsea admits Sami has actually made her feel needed. Sami says she means it,
she can't sit around feeling sorry for herself. Chelsea agrees and says she
won't let her down. Sami says fantastic, now they can go to a wedding gown
fitting this afternoon. Sami hopes she likes her new dress better than the
last one. Chelsea says she liked the last one, she was just being a brat.
EJ meets with Dr. Abruzzi again. The doctor says Stefano has responded to the
transplant well, but there is an issue with his blood cell count. If things
don't turn around then they'll need a bone marrow transplant, a family
member is the best option. EJ asks to be kept informed. He says nothing is
more important to him than his father's life and he's holding the doctor
responsible for it. The doctor says he needs to be going.
Meanwhile a man working at the restaurant comes over and hands Sami a note.
She's shocked. She looks over at EJ, who wonders what is going on. Sami
excuses herself to use the ladies room. After Sami leaves, EJ comes over to
join Chelsea. He wonders what is up with Sami. He saw her rush off, earlier
she fainted into his arms. He says he's concerned about her as a friend.
Chelsea says well he could rush into the ladies room and find out. EJ tries to
butter Chelsea up by claiming he doesn't think she the arsonist. Kayla and
Roman show up, wondering why EJ is out with Chelsea. Chelsea says she's out
with Sami, EJ has his own table. Kayla and Roman claim they are here to see EJ.
Celeste meets with Sami in the ladies room. Sami asks what she is doing here,
EJ is right out there. She wonders how Celeste knew she was here. She says she
called Lucas claiming to make sure Abe and Theo were invited to the wedding.
Sami says well EJ could catch them together. Celeste came to warn her about
what Benjy told her. She says Stefano is obsessed with her baby, he thinks it
is a gift from God. Celeste tells her that if she is carrying EJ's baby then
she won't see the baby, the DiMeras will take it from her. She asks if
she's going to let that happen? Sami says is won't happen, she has a
foolproof way to convince EJ that he's not the father. Celeste says she's
playing with fire, the only way is to . . . .SAmi says no, she is not going to
murder EJ so forget it. Celeste says Sami picked a fine time to become moral.
Sami says she has done a lot, but she's not a killer. Celeste says killing
EJ isn't a sin, she'd be saving others from evil Sami says if Celeste
feels that way then she can do it. Sami goes to leave, but says don't let
Celeste see her.
EJ, Roman and Kayla talk. EJ wonders what the evil EJ has done this time.
Kayla demands to know what EJ did with Stve. Roman calms her down. Roman says
Steve escaped. EJ says and they think he had something to do with this? He
says Steve has assaulted him and made accusations against him. Kayla says he
and his family tortured and brainwashed him. EJ tells her to get a grip or she
will find herself next to him in the hospital. Kayla knows he went to see him,
she saw the guest log. EJ admits he did, Steve stole a phone and called him.
He says Steve wanted him to help him escape. He says he told him to get help.
Kayla says he doesn't care about Steve of anyone, he expects them to believe
he visited Steve to tell him to get help? She says if she went to the hospital
to see Steve then it was for some other reason and she wants to know what. EJ
says he's tired of these accusations, he will get a restraining order
against Roman's family if he needs to. He says he doesn't know where Steve
is, maybe he's at Billie's. Roman says they talked to Billie, she's been
sick in bed. EJ says well he'll make them a deal, he'll put feelers out
for Steve and if he finds him then he'll let the Salem PD have him. Roman
and Kayla leave and then EJ takes off.
Chelsea and Sami watch EJ leave. Sami wonders where he is rushing off to.
Chelsea says funny, EJ asked while she ran to the ladies room. Chelsea says
she thinks EJ seems off. Sami asks Chelsea to tell her everything he said.
Chelsea says he was jut concerned about her health, they both made snaky
remarks and then Roman and Kayla came to question him. Chelsea so asks what
the story is, why did she run off? Sami notices the time, she says they
can't sit and talk, they have to go to the fitting.
Still at the restaurant, EJ is on the phone as Celeste heads out and gets into
the elevator. He spots her and doesn't look happy!
Roman and Kayla go to the hospital and look for clues in the cell, but find
nothing. Kayla is still sure EJ knows something. Roman says EJ did seem
surprised that he escaped. Roman decides to call the hospital and have John
guarded, no need to have a repeat of last time. Kayla says Steve isn't a
threat to John, he just wants to get away. Kayla asks Roman to call Marlena,
tell her that she needs her help.
Back at Billie's, she and Steve are about to leave when EJ shows up.
Steve hides as EJ asks why Billie lied to him? He says she said she was
here with Chelsea, but that is not true.
