October 22, 2007
On the docks, Bo and Shawn continue their talk about how he and Hope don't want him to be a cop. Bo tells him to think about Claire, what it would be like for her to grow up without him. Shawn says you can't go around living life worried about what could happen. He doesn't want his mom walking around all night worrying about him. Bo says Marlena probably didn't sleep last night, and these last few years, he would catch Hope pacing around worrying too. Bo says she wouldn't say what was worrying her, he knows it was always Zack. Bo tells Shawn that being a cop is dangerous. Shawn says he'll be careful. Bo says John was careful, he had a family he adored and loved. Shawn says John wouldn't tell him to quit and be a shoe salesman. Bo agrees he wouldn't. Bo admits to Shawn this isn't just about what mom wants for him, if something ever happened to him then he couldn't take it either. Shawn talks to his dad about how he won't quit active duty and go work at the academy. Bo says the bottom line is it is hard watching someone you love do it. Shawn reminds him when he told Grandma and Grandpa he wanted to do this. Bo remembers, they didn't like it either. Shawn says the bottom line is they respected his choice. Bo says they had to, he was going to be a cop no matter what. Shawn says he made some bad choices these past few years, he wants to make a difference, he wants to make the world better for Claire. He says he's learned from John's death that the good guys need all the help they can get. Bo can't argue there. Bo tells him to just be safe, they hug.


Later Sergeant Iron Pants, aka Commander Flynn from the academy shows up. He meets Shawn, they discuss if he has what it takes? Bo does, he got top scores on his examines. Shawn says he starts tomorrow. Commander Flynn says he has some making up to do, and he invites him to have breakfast with him and the new recruits tomorrow. Shawn says he will be there. The Commander heads off. Shawn thanks his dad for putting a good word for him. Bo says he just told the truth. Bo is proud of him, he's taken on a lot of responsibilities. He says speaking of that, when are he and Belle marrying? Shawn says when the time is right. Bo tells him not to wait too long, Claire might end up being her mom's maid of honor. Shawn decides to leave to go see Belle and tell her the news. Shawn leaves, Bo tells himself that Shawn will be okay. 

At Marlena's, Marlena insists she doesn't need a baby sitter or to be taken care of. Belle and Sami tell her that they all need each other. Marlena can't argue with that. She says what she needs is John, and their families need them right now. She asks what their fellas would say if they told them that they were choosing her over them? Belle says they'd understand. Sami says Lucas would be glad she's choosing her over EJ. Marlena and Belle can't believe that she's still doing this. Belle says the DIMeras shouldn't get rewarded for killing her father, tell EJ to go to hell. Sami says and then someone else would die. She won't let that happen. Marlena tells Sami nobody wants or expects her to protect the whole family. Belle says this is the dying wish that drove Colleen to suicide, that is a wish to be spit on, not honored. Belle tells Sami to let the DiMeras know they can't run her life. Sami says they hurt those they love, they could go after anyone. Sami says pretending Stefano won't carry this to the end means people will get hurt. Belle says what if this is a trap, look at what they've done to John, Steve, to Hope. Marlena says to her. Sami says if they don't end it then she'll get out. Belle asks how? Sami says EJ loves her, she doesn't love him, that means she has power over him. Marlena says that won't keep her safe, Stefano said he loves her and took away one of the most precious people to her. She says EJ is Stefano's son, he has a black heart, she can't control it. Sami says she has to try. Marlena says she's taking on something dangerous that could end with her life. Sami says thanks to the DiMeras, the body count keeps rising. Marlena says that won't end by her becoming a DiMera. Sami says she'll never be a DiMera, she'll always be a Brady and Lucas' wife. Belle says her dad wouldn't want this. Marlena thinks she believes this will really satisfy Stefano? Sami says what else would he want. Marlena says an heir, to carry on the bloodline. Sami says she won't sleep with EJ, EJ said he would lie to Stefano and say they are. Belle says EJ could force himself on her again. Sami says Stefano won't survive another year, once he's gone then she'll leave EJ. Marlena says and she thinks EJ will just let her go? Sami says she's trying to do what is right for this family. Marlena says there are limits. Sami says they've both risked everything for their family, she can do no less. Sami is done arguing with everyone about this. Marelna tells Belle to tell her that this is the biggest mistake of her life. Belle says she doesn't know if she can. Marlena asks Belle if she's lost her marbles? Belle says she did crazy things on the run to protect Claire and even Marlena has gone up against the DiMeras. Belle agrees, Stefano can't live forever. Marlena is beginning to wonder. Marlena tells Smi after Stefano dies, EJ won't let her leave him for Lucas. Marlena says EJ would rather see her dead than married to Lucas. Marlena says this is making things unbearable for her. Sami wishes she could take her pain away. Marlena says she can't, no one can. Sami says she'll leave them for awhile, if her mom changes her mind about her living here then tell her. Sami promises to turn this vendetta back around on Stefano. Sami then leaves.


Belle tells her mom to lay down and sleep. Marlena wishes she could, sleep would be some wonderful relief. Belle has to go, she has to pick up Claire. She says she'll check on her later. Belle then leaves. Marlena is alone again in her room. She sees the American flag on her bed. She makes a call. Sami later returns, Marlena called her back. Marlena didn't like the way they left things. Suddenly Sami is hit with labor pains. Marlena thinks it's time to get her to the hospital, but Sami soon realizes these babies are coming now! The contractions are far too close.

At the hospital, Phillip keeps arguing with Steve and Kayla. Steve says Phillip isn't going to take their son. Phillip says he is his son, but Steve says they haven't proved that yet. Steve tells Phillip he chased Claire half way around the world and she wasn't his, he's not doing that with Pocket. Kayla tells them to stop it, Pocket is sick and they need to find out why. Steve doesn't get Phillip, he didn't want this kid before, what has changed now. Is he just another trophy for him? The doctor and Mrs. Meyers show up, Phillip wants to know how his son is. The doctor says excuse me? Mrs. Meyers says this is the young man saying he's the boys father. The doctor explains Pocket has MMA, a disorder that causes the body to produce chemicals that interfere with the body's digestion. She says that it's serious, but treatable with medicine and diet. Steve asks if the case with the DA against them has been closed? Mrs. Meyers says yes. She also tells Phillip that she's still working on the DNA test with family court. The new foster parents come in, they've been waiting all night for word. They are told what is going on and  they meet Steve and Kayla and Phillip. The new foster parents are still calling him Pocket as the name fits him. When they learn about Phillip, they knew this would happen one day. They say they've just fallen so in love with him. Everyone watches as Wayne and Ruth, the new foster parents, check in on him. They all see how much they love Pocket. They've brought in a blanket for him. 


Later Mrs. Meyers tells Phillip, Steve and Kayla that the baby will stay with the new parents. She says a DNA test will be performed for Phillip. However she says these new parents have bonded with him, they want to adopt him. Phillip says it won't happen. Mrs. Meyers says they are aware Steve and Kayla love him too, and of Phillip's claim. Mrs. Meyers says Pocket has won over everyone. She leaves, Phillip and Steve watch Pocket as he bonds with the new parents. Phillip tells Steve he knows what he's thinking, he has more than money to offer his son. Steve wonders what Pocket has to offer Phillip? Steve says if he's lonely get a pet, get a dog. Steve then walks off. Kayla tells Phillip that they both love that baby. Phillip asks if they'll trade him in for a dog too? Kayla says no. She suspects Phillip is the father. She tells Phillip he can go to court, or he can do what is right for this baby. Phillip says he was a good father to Claire. Kayla says she is sure he was, but right now Pocket comes first and he needs healing. She says sometimes they have to do the right thing and let go. She knows he has a hole in his heart where Claire and Belle were, but Pocket can't fill that. 

Later Phillip leaves. Kayla and Steve say goodbye to Pocket before giving him to the new foster parents. The new parents are then able to take him home. Steve tells Kayla he'll miss him, he loved him. Kayla says she did too. Steve says that baby could be Phillip's and they could have still lost him. Kayla says she knows. Steve suggests they just focus on their little family right now. He says maybe some day they'll have a baby, never say never. Kayla says he's a wonderful father and one day they'll talk about it, but only if he's ready. They kiss and hug.


Belle and Phillip both end up at the church. Phillip finds her lighting a candle. He tells her that he's so sorry. Belle was thinking about how she used to go to the carnival as a kid with her dad. She remembers one time they got separated and she was so scared, but he found her. She says even though she's a grown up, she's still daddy's little girl. She wonders who will hold her hand now. Phillip takes her hand. Belle asks him how things are with Tyler. Phillip explains he met his new foster parents. Phillip says they are amazing, and Tyler has been found to have a disorder making him sick, it's treatable. Phillip says his new parents were wonderful. Belle says but he'll take him home soon. Phillip says he can't believe he's about to say this, but he thinks he has to give his son up. She doesn't understand, he explains he has to do what is best for his son and he can't fill the hole in his heart. She asks who can? Phillip says she can. He says he loves her and wants her back. They kiss. Meanwhile Shawn arrives outside the church and is about to walk in as they are kissing!


October 23, 2007

At the pub, Bo is upset when he sees someone reading a story on John's death. Bo and Abe talk, Abe says the headlight has been traced to a used car lot in Chicago. The last owner was a Harry Jenks. Abe says he checks out clean. Bo says it could be his first job for the DiMeras or just a random hit and run. Bo decides to have this guy staked-out. Bo then gets a call from Flynn at the academy. He needs to speak with Shawn, there is apparently a problem. Bo says he'll find Shawn and bring him into the station. Bo tells Abe he has to go, he doesn't like the way Flynn sounded.

EJ and Lucas meet at the pub, EJ asked him there. EJ reminds Lucas about their conversation a few months ago about the twins, when they thought he was the father. Lucas promised to love and raise the kids as his own and not prejudice them against EJ. Lucas says well the twins are his. EJ feels it is only fair he honor the same commitment he made, when he and Sami are married he wants them to all raise these kids together. Lucas says when there is a cold day in hell. EJ says Sami won't forgive him for putting her through a court battle for the twins. Lucas says as soon as Stefano dies, Sami will come home to him. EJ says in a perfect world. Lucas asks what he thinks will happen, she'll get Stockholm syndrome and fall for him? EJ says like Beauty and the Beast? They keep arguing, Lucas thinks EJ called him here to stick it to him. Lucas says he picked the wrong day. EJ says he will raise these children as if they are his own. Lucas and EJ keep arguing and bickering, John's death ends up being brought up. Lucas tells EJ to save it, his phony sympathy for John's murder makes him sick. EJ thinks Lucas enjoys vilifying him. Lucas says he shot John and put him in a coma. EJ calls it a rumor, saying no evidence was found and no charges were filed against him. Lucas thinks it bothered him when John didn't die. EJ tells Lucas these crazy conspiracy theories could cause him a lot of suffering. Lucas asks if that is a threat? EJ says he's just saying his perfect world doesn't always meet his expectations. Lucas thinks this is sounding like a threat to him. Will he shoot him? Hit-n-run? Maybe he'll throw him in a freezer truck. Lucas then gets a call from Sami and learns Sami is at at the penthouse and in labor. Sami says the twins are coming, get here. Lucas says he's on his way. EJ asks what is going on with Sami?


Later Bo sees Lucas about to rush off. Bo asks what is going on? Lucas says Sami is in labor, Bo says congratulations then. Lucas asks Bo for a major favor. We don't hear it, Bo later says he's happy to help. EJ then asks Lucas what he's doing talking to Bo, he heard Sami is in labor. Lucas tells EJ they should call a truce now that Sami is in labor. They shake, Lucas handcuffs him to a booth at the pub! Lucas says he'll be back later with the key, when the twins are about 18. Lucas leaves, Bo and Abe laugh at EJ. EJ tells them to help him out. Bo and Abe say okay, but then of course realize Lucas has the key. EJ says then get him some bolt cutters. Bo asks if this looks like a hardware store? EJ says this is outrageous. Bo says what is outrageous is John being taken out by a DiMera hit. EJ says his family had nothing to do with it. Bo says he's heard that before, from a DiMera. 


Kate later shows up to find EJ trying to break free. EJ says her grandchildren are being born as they speak, does she have bolt cutters. She says no, she left them in her other purse. She asks how this happened, he explains. EJ asks her to help him get out, but Kate says call a lock smith, she's off to see her grandchildren. EJ eventually breaks out, Kate's having car trouble or something (missed it) and they plan to head to see the twins together. 

Shawn shows up at the church as Belle and Phillip are kissing. Of course he doesn't see them, Belle pushes Phillip away and says this is wrong. Shawn walks in and asks what is going on? Belle says she was lighting a candle for her dad, Phillip came for his son. Belle explains Phillip has decided to give his son up. Belle is glad to see Shawn and hugs him, saying she feels like nothing is the way it should. She wants to go home, she belongs with him and their daughter. As they go to leave, Phillip watches. Shawn continues to support her. As they are leaving, Bo calls and asks Shawn to meet him at the station. Shawn says he has to drop Belle off first. Belle tells Shawn it's okay, she has her own car. Shawn says he has some news, good news, but he won't tell her to later. He then walks her to her car as Phillip watches. 

After Belle and Shawn leave, Phillip prays and talks with God. He believes he should be with Belle, and he believes Belle's reluctance to marry Shawn is a sign. He admits maybe it's what he wants to see. Phillip says the first year he and Belle were together with Claire, it was everything he's ever wanted. Phillip says he loves Belle, he never stopped. He says he wants Belle back, if God can help then he'd be grateful. Belle then returns and finds him praying. She says sorry to interrupt, but her car won't start. She asks if he can look at it? 


Phillip couldn't get the car working, so he took Belle home. For some reason they end up making Belle's bed, which isn't made. She does a terrible job, Phillip shows her how it is supposed to be done, saying she has to learn this to be a nurse and make those hospital bed corners. Belle says just like old times. Belle says they've moved on, but Phillip says he's still in love with her and wants her back. They discuss their marriage failing. Phillip says he should have called her out on her feelings for Shawn earlier. Belle thinks their marriage would have failed all that much sooner. They discuss their marriage, Phillip admits walking away cost him everything he loved. Phillip says it's not too late to put them back together. Belle says she's with Shawn, they are engaged. Phillip says when he kissed her, she kissed him back. She asks him to leave, but Phillip knows she wants him as much as he wants her. He asks why she's fighting it? She says this is wrong. He says he's not talking about sneaking around or having an affair, they love each other and never got a second chance. Belle says she can't do this, and she kissed him back because he made her feel safe. She says Shawn loves her and she loves him. Phillip says but if Shawn was all she needed, she would have slapped him and not kissed him. Phillip says he loves her and wants to make love to her. Belle asks him to go. Phillip says if she wants him to walk out of he life then he will, she's the only one who can stop him. He goes to leave, but of course she stops him and they begin to kiss. 


At the station, Bo and Shawn meet with Commander Flynn. Flynn says Shawn's enrollment in the academy has been postponed pending review. This is because of Shawn's defying a court order and taking Claire when Phillip had custody. Shawn tries to explain, but Flynn says Shawn isn't what they are looking for at the Salem PD. They want to know who brought this up to him, but he isn't at liberty to say. Flynn says it doesn't matter, it would have come up in the background check. Shawn says he doesn't believe that some anonymous informant just happened to give him one sided information. Bo says no charges were filed and his record is clean. Flynn says he will be brought up before the board. Bo promises to appeal this if it doesn't go their way. Flynn says Shawn's rejection is far from a done deal, but Shawn doesn't think it sounds that way at all. Flynn says he'll call them with the decision. Shawn is furious, he tells his dad he's going to do what he should have done a long time ago. Shawn says he thinks Phillip did this, and he found Belle and Phillip at the church talking. However he thinks Belle was looking very guilty, and now Phillip is giving up his kid for adoption. He thought this kid would take Phillip's focus off Belle. He says Phillip wants Belle back. Bo says he's afraid she'll falter? They continue to talk about this, Shawn talks about how Phillip constantly milks Belle for her sympathy, and Belle of course feels guilty and that she's the only one who understands him. Shawn says he's sick of it. Shawn says he's going to find Phillip and force the truth out of him about this stunt. He wants Belle to see what Phillip is really about. 

At the penthouse, Sami is in labor and thinks it's too soon, she's not ready. Marlena says she's ready all right. Sami says the apartment isn't ready though, she hasn't finished baby proofing it or setting up the room. Marlena says the babies are coming. She tells Sami to focus on the twins, that is her job now. She says she'll call her doctor and have them meet them at the hospital. Sami cries out she doesn't think there is time, they are coming now! Marlena calls the paramedics and assures Sami that if they don't arrive, she'll deliver the twins. Sami says she's a shrink. Marlena says she is also and an MD, she did her rotation in OB and gave birth to her own children safely. MArlena continues to monitor Sami's progress as the babies are coming. 


Lucas soon shows up to be with Sami. He asks where the paramedics are? Marlena says there is a five car pile-up on the high way. Lucas tells her she was supposed to wait for him. She says she tried. Marlena says the first baby is coming, Marlena guides her through labor and when to push and not to push. The baby boy comes first. They are happy to meet him, but MArlena says a baby girl is still waiting. 

Lucas and Sami discuss the baby boy's name. Instead of Roman Thomas then name him John Roman. Marlena thanks them for that. Sami's hit with another pain, the next baby is coming. However there is a problem, the cord is wrapped around the little girl's neck. Sami begs her mom to save her baby, do whatever it takes, cut her open. Marlena says she won't have to do any cutting. Marlena manages to get the baby free and continues with the instructions on pushing and not pushing. 

Later both babies have been born. Lucas and Sami can't believe this. Suddenly Kate and EJ show up, Marlena asks how the hell they got in here? EJ and Kate say they just want to see the babies. Marlena says please have the good manners to get out! Why is he still standing there? EJ says the twins don't look alike, almost like they have different father. He then walks out. Kate tells Lucas she knows he's angry with her, but she's happy for him.


October 24, 2007
In Belle and Shawn's room, we see a replay of Belle not letting Phillip leave. She closes the door when he offers to walk out. She says she doesn't want him to leave, she couldn't bare it if she never saw him again. They kiss and soon end up in bed. Belle says she can't, but doesn't stop. They begin ripping each other's clothes off and soon make love. During the process Belle kicks over a vase. Belle later tells Phillip to get out, this was a mistake, she's engaged. Phillip says there is nothing wrong with what they did. She asks how he can say that? She says it was just sex and it will never happen again. She tells him to go, he left them a long time ago. Phillip says it was a mistake. He says she isn't happy, if she was then she would have married Shawn by now. He says he loves her and will never stop fighting for her. Belle basically shoves him out of the room. 


Down in the pub, Hope is looking through Halloween decorations. Shawn shows up, she asks if something is wrong? Shawn takes it she hasn't talked to dad yet. Shawn says she just got back from the station, his enrollment has been postponed. He doesn't want to talk about it, he wants to go upstairs. Hope tells him to wait. She wants to know what happened, maybe it isn't as bleak as he thinks. He explains his case is being reviewed for violating a court order. He also says this wasn't from a background check, they were tripped off. She asks who would do that? Shawn says Phillip. Hope asks why he'd do that, he was willing to offer to help him get a job not long ago. Shawn says it's the same reason Phillip helped Claire with school and Belle with those close. Shawn says he's playing games, earlier he caught them at the church and they looked guilty. Hope says Belle just lost her father, does he really think Phillip would take advantage of her at a time like this? Shawn says yes. Hope says it takes two, and remember that Belle loves him. Shawn says he's just afraid she loves Phillip still too. Hope says if Belle still had feelings for Phillip then she wouldn't have agreed to marry him, trust in Belle. Shawn still thinks Phillip bad mouthed him to the commander, he saw a way to make him look bad to Belle and took it. Hope says Belle doesn't care what he does for a living, but Shawn says it makes Phillip and his money look better. Shawn thinks that the Commander was paid off. Hope tells Shawn that if he doesn't stop with these accusations, Belle will see his insecurities and that he's consumed with jealously. Shawn says he'd rather look jealous than like a naive wimp. Hope asks so what he'll do, beat him up? Hope says that won't look good to the academy. She tells him to do detective work and find out if Phillip is playing fair or dirty. She also says tell Belle the truth about everything, she might surprise him. Shawn says he guesses it might work. Hope says it will. Shawn asks if she's upstairs? Hope didn't see her car in the lot, but Phillip's was there. Maybe he gave her a ride home. Shawn checks it out, it is Phillip's car, he's not happy. Hope tells him to cool down, not to do anything rash.

Phillip soon comes down the steps and face to face with Shawn and Hope. Hope excuses herself, she leaves with Ciara. Shawn tells Phillip they need to talk. Shawn asks why he's here. Phillip says he gave Belle a lift, her car wasn't working. Shawn the asks what he was doing up in their room? He says he's a gentleman, he walked her to the door. Shawn says that is a joke. He tells Phillip to leave Belle alone, she's off limits. Phillip says Belle is miserable and if he'd pay attention then he'd realize that. Phillip says they both want to see Belle and happy and he's the one that does that for her. Phillip says he'll always love Belle and she'll always love him.


Upstairs, Belle is in tears over what she's done. She looks at the broken vase and then starts stripping the bed of the sheets. Hope later shows up with Ciara and checks on Belle, she's cleaning up the vase. Hope looks around and wonders what happened here. Hope had brought up a pumpkin candy collector for Claire. Hope says it looks like they came at a bad time, what happened. Belle says she was doing laundry and knocked a vase over. Hope sees she's been crying. Belle says it's a week for crying. She says she has missed a lot of classes this week and she has a final on Friday. Hope says she loves her son and there is nothing she won't do to protect him. She wants to know what happened between her and Phillip, she wants the truth. 

Sami is now in the hospital. The babies are next to her, Lucas shows up to check on them all. They talk about how tiny the babies are, how cute they are. Lucas talks about how terrific her mom was. Sami says he was to. Lucas says he didn't do much, but Sami says  he didn't faint and that is more than most guys. Lucas says he wasn't there when Will was born, so he wouldn't miss this one for anything. He says he'll be there for the next ones too. Sami suggests they not talk about any more babies right now. Sami suggests they choose a name for the girl. She'd like to go with the J theme. Lucas suggests Julia, but they realize than name is taken, ie Julia Roberts. Jane is out as it's too 1950s. They continue talking and EJ's comment comes up. Sami tells Lucas not to worry about EJ's comment, they are fraternal twins and don't have to look alike. Lucas says but what if they do have different fathers? Lucas reminds her the first DNA test was screwed up by Nick, but Sami says Kate had something to do with that. Sami says EJ doesn't know what he's talking about, he's trying to stir the pot.

EJ and Kate show up at the hospital, in the hall he is still saying those twins don't look alike. Kate says if he was the father they'd have a horn and a tail. EJ says then why is Marlena over there talking to a lab tech? Marlena talks with the lab tech about the first test done. She offers to run it again, but Marlena doesn't know how well that will go over with Sami. EJ continues to tell Kate he is sure one of those babies is his, which means he and Sami will be bonded for life. Kate reminds him there is a bond between her and Lucas too. EJ says he and Sami are getting married. Kate says he thinks he's really going to get her to fall in love with him? He says he likes a challenge. He says once Sami knows the truth about the babies, Lucas will become a distant memory. MArlena walks up hearing this and is furious. She says how dare he! She says he raped her daughter and has caused her family unspeakable pain. She says damn you and slaps EJ! She says he looks surprised, he didn't think she had that in her. EJ admits he didn't. She says she'd rather kill him than slap him. Marlena tells EJ to stay away from Sami and the twins. EJ thinks she has doubts too, that is why she was talking to the lab tech. EJ says it is possible that he fathered one of those babies. MArlena says don't send out any birth announcements yet. EJ says he knows she's dying to know just as much as he is. She says you mean if one of those babies was fathered by a rapist? EJ suggests they keep this conversation on an adult level. Marlena says when she looks at him she sees a little boy in a man's body, so she doesn't think they can do that. She says if he thinks he can make Sami or a child love him, he is in for a hard landing.


Back in Sami's room, Lucas tells Sami that they should probably get another DNA test. He says he'll love these babies no matter what, but they have to know. Marlena walks in, Sami asks her mom to help her convince Lucas not to do another DNA test on the babies. Marlena says she agrees with Lucas. Sami thinks Marlena is taking EJ's side. Marlena isn't, but she wants to erase any shadow of doubt in this area. She says they always knew EJ might be the father from the beginning. Sami says he's not, they did a test. Marlena says she doesn't think there was a mistake, but with twins it can be complicated. Sami says maybe she and Eric should be tested too, doesn't that sound crazy? Marlena says it's a different situation and she knows. Marlena says what if something happen to the babies one day, something that was hereditary. She says Sami would need all information she could have. MArlena says one lab tech suggests they re-run the test again. Sami says why now? She thinks it is a convenient timing. What if EJ bribed him. Marlena says if they do the test again, they will make sure it is under the tightest security. Sami says the thing is she doesn't care whose babies they are, she already feels they are theirs. She says EJ has taken so much from them, don't let him take the babies too. Lucas sides with Sami, if she doesn't want another test then they won't do it. He also says if EJ wants to take them to court then they will fight him. Lucas says he won't let anyone break up their family. Marlena asks Lucas for some time alone with Sami. Lucas says she doesn't want the test. Marlena says she knows. Lucas says he'll go to the cafeteria. 

Marlena is alone with Sami. She suggests they do the test without EJ knowing. Sami says are you kidding, he knows more about her life than she does. Marlena says they need an answer. Sami says she doesn't want to be stuck with EJ for life. Marlena says if the tests show Lucas is the father, then EJ might leave her alone. Sami says not likely, she has to marry him and is stuck with him until Stefano dies. Marlena says then she has nothing to lose by doing the test.


Back outside, EJ thanks Kate for the support there. Kate says the woman just lost her husband. EJ says he had nothing to do with that, don't insult him by taking her word over his. Kate says if she ever finds out he had anything to do with John's death, she'll kill him herself!  Later Lucas later fins Kate on the phone. Kate asks how they are, can she look at them. Lucas asks if EJ went home. She says no, he went off to get tea. Lucas asks if Kate put him up to the comment about the twins, but Kate says he came up with it himself. Lucas says every time he turns around she's with either EJ or Stefano. He also isn't buying this idea that she had nothing to do with this. He thinks she'd love it if one or both baby turned out to be EJs. She says those are her grandchildren. Lucas reminds her of Nick's tests, but Kate claims he made that mistake on his own.

Marlena says not taking the test won't make the problem go away, it will just eat her up inside. Sami is scared. Marlena says if EJ is the father of one or both they'll deal with that. Marlena reminds her that Lucas and everyone was supportive in the beginning when they thought EJ was the father. Sami agrees to the test. The nurse comes in, Marlena instructs that two techs do the test, the samples are never to be out of sight. Marlena says she'll walk her to the lab with the swabs.
