At the hospital, Sami is drinking plenty of fluids as Lucas says good
girl. Sami can't believe they lost that folio. As Lucas rants about all
this and these stupid letters, EJ shows up to hear him saying he's sick of
all these DiMeras. EJ thinks he came at a bad time. EJ says he only came by
to thank Lucas for saving his life. Lucas says he regrets it already. Lucas
gets a call from Kate and leaves to answer the phone. EJ tells Sami he
didn't mean to set Lucas off. She says of course not, Lucas never objects
to him showing up. He asks how the babies are, she says fine. Lucas returns,
Kate is convinced Andre is after her. Lucas says he'll have to go see her.
Sami says hurry back, she and Lucas kiss. Lucas tells EJ he'll help him
back to his room. EJ says he can make it on his own, but Lucas says this
isn't a request. In the hall, Lucas tells EJ to stay away from Sami, she
doesn't need his visits or his concern. EJ says it's time for his sponge
bath anyway and leaves.
After Lucas leaves, EJ returns to Sami's room. He brings up the kiss they
shared in the steam room while she was giving him CPR, he knows she felt the
passion between them, he didn't imagine it. Sami asks EJ why he's doing
this? She says she loves her husband, she doesn't want him. Not in her
dreams, not in the past, not in the present. What does she have to stay to
make him believe it? He says she doesn't believe it herself, so why should
he believe her. She asks what it will take to make him get this? She says
she loves her husband and her family. She is married. EJ doesn't believe
she's going to morph into a modern version of a stepford wife. EJ
continues making various comments to her, which causes her to call him a
pig. He says there is the Sami he knows and loves. She later asks why he is
still here? He says he just saw that wicked girl he loves, why would he
leave. She says because she wants him to. HE tells her life is a risk, one
you jump into. She asks what he's talking about? He says he's talking
about life, she knows who they both are and what it takes to make them
happy, no matter how much she tries to deny it. He then snatches the new
letters from Sami, which she was going to read. EJ says these letters belong
to both their families. She says he's as much of a pig as his grandfather.
He says Colleen loved Santo. She thinks Colleen was under his spell. EJ says
they were in love. Sami says love shouldn't cause such pain. She says
Colleen begged Santo to stay out of her life but he wouldn't, he was
always in her face. She wants the letters back as she's reading them with
Lucas. EJ says they are a lot like the two of them, Santo and Colleen. Sami
says yea, she gets confused for a nun all the time. EJ says they were two
people from two worlds, they were drawn together and not fate, not their
family, not the church could separate them. Sami's phone rings, it's
Lucas calling to ask if she got any rest or if EJ popped in? She says of
course he didn't. Lucas says he has to help his mom move her stuff,
he'll explain when he sees her. She tells him to hurry back. EJ tells Sami
if Lucas is on his way back then they better hurry up and read these
letters. She says she's not reading them with him. He says she is, he
learned a few things from his grandfather. She asks like what? He says how
to persuade the woman you love that she loves him.
At the pub, Kate tells Lucas that Andre is trying to kill her, she almost
got into an empty elevator shaft today! Kate is sure Andre is after her.
Lucas asks if maybe she could stay with Roman, since Phillip is out of town.
Kate says Roman isn't happy with her lately, she told him about what
happened with Stefano. Lucas asks why? She says she thought it would make
her feel better. She says there was a time that seeing herself through his
eyes made her feel good. She talks about how she knew he wouldn't judge
her if she told him. Lucas says he's not judging her, he knows what she
did to raise him, what she had to give up. Kate says she would do it again
in a heartbeat. Lucas wants to help her, but she says it's not his
problem. He says it is. She asks why, because he called the SEC? He says
because she is his mom and he loves her. She says mention that at the
eulogy. He says nobody will kill her. Kate says the night is young. Roman
then shows up and says she can always go back to sleeping with the enemy.
Kate asks why he's here? Lucas says he called him. Kate thinks she can
handle herself. Roman says they're looking into the elevator thing, it
looks like a simple mechanical failure. Kate thinks it was engineered by
Andre. Roman says if not she can sue the building, he's sure the money
will come in very handy when the IRS comes knocking. She says she's happy
that her life is a source of amusement to him. He says there is nothing
funny about losing her, some people make the world a more interesting place.
Roman agrees that Andre is up in arms, he won't be happy with her, Lucas
or Sami for what happened. Roman asks Kate to stay at his place. She says
he's not serious. He gives her his keys and hopes she takes his offer. She
takes them and thanks him. Lucas says he'll help his mom get her stuff
together. Lucas excuses himself to call Sami and tell her. Roman tells Kate
that Lucas is a good man. She says yes, so is he. Roman says he'll see her
at home. Kate asks Roman why? Roman asks why does she think? Roman then
Back at the hospital, Bo visits Stefano's room where Tony is. Tony says
he's stable. Bo needs to talk to Tony, they leave the room. Bo says Rolf
wants Stefano released, he needs him here. He needs Tony's help with that.
Tony asks why ? Bo needs him somewhere he can easily get to him . . . as
he's going to kill him! Tony asks if he's out of his mind? Bo says
it's a con, to bring Andre out of hiding at Stefano's funeral. Tony says
for this to work it must be believable, someone Andre would believe would
kill Stefano. Tony says it can't be a Brady, but knows who should do it . .
. Steve Johnson! Abe then shows up, he has been brought in on the plan
from Roman. Bo says Tony wants Steve to do it. Abe asks what if Steve flips
out? Bo thinks Steve can do this. Abe says he better be sure before Steve is
put into play again. Tony is called in to Stefano's room by a nurse, she
needs to talk about Stefano's condition. Abe continues talking to Bo about
using Steve. He agrees, but warns Bo that he still has to convince Kayla!
Tony goes in to see Stefano. Stefano seems out of it still. He asks Tony
about the surgery? Tony says it was a success, he'll be fine. Stefano says
he hides his disappointment. Rolf says Stefano is being released in his
care, but Tony says he must stay here in case anything happens. Tony says
nothing will happen to him. Stefano says he'd be a fool to trust him. Tony
promises him he will be safe. Stefano says why the change of heart? Tony
says he is still his son, they have both disappointed one another over the
years. Stefano asks Rolf to excuse them, he does. Stefano asks Tony if he
believes in dreams? Tony does, he dreamed for years of being rescued from
the island. Stefano doesn't mean the waking kind. He says he dreamed he
was helpless in this bed and that the Brady's murdered him in cold blood.
Stefano tells Tony to please get him out of here. Tony says he'll see what
he can do. Tony says despite of all the times he's denied it in his heart,
he'll always be a DiMera. Stefano asks what that means? Tony says it means
that in the end, his loyalty will always be to him. Stefano says they both
have regrets. Stefano says a man has to belong to something bigger than
himself. Tony realizes that now. Stefano says to his family, to his destiny.
Tony says he is his family, biology be damned. Stefano says he is ready to
be a true son then. He says Tony is his eldest, which means he is the one
closest to his heart. He says if Tony protects him, he will reward him with
everything he has! Tony says they'll talk about that later. Stefano says
despite all the suffering, look who is sitting by him now? He says he wants
Tony to carry on the DiMera Legacy. Tony says it would be an honor. HE then
kisses his father on the cheeks.
Stephanie shows up at her parents. She's in tears, she could use a hug and
didn't know where to go. Steve hugs her. She didn't want to come see him
about this, but he's the only person she can turn to. Stephanie says
Jeremy got into trouble, he's been smuggling girls into the country. Steve
can't believe this. Stephanie says he thought he was only helping them
share in the American Dream, but he is trying to fix it. Steve asks her if
she knew of any of this? She says no, and it's okay to say I told you
so. Steve says he won't do that, he loves her more than he loves being
right. Steve says until they know what is going on, she needs to stay away
from Jeremy. She won't, she loves him and he loves her. She says he's
trying to fix things, she knows he loves her and means it. Steve says of
course Jeremy loves her, he'd have to be a fool not to. Steve says so she
wants to give him another chance. Stephanie says yes, and she won't be too
trusting this time. Steve says good, steer clear of his trouble. Stephanie
asks if Steve will help him if he needs it? Steve says he will help her, if
that helps Jeremy then so be it. However he says it's not her job to fix
his life. She says isn't that what you do when you love someone? Stephanie
later heads out. Steve tells her that he has her back, nobody messes with
his little girl.
Kayla comes out of the bedroom, she was dealing with Pocket. She thought she
heard Stephanie? Steve says she was here. Steve tells her that it seems
Jeremy got himself into some trouble, not to worry though as he's on top
of it. Bo then shows up, he's here to talk about DiMera. Kayla says what
about him? The baby cries, Kayla says wait on this until she's back. Kayla
leaves to take care of Pocket. Steve asks Bo if the buzzard is still living?
Bo says unfortunately. Steve says son of a bitch. Bo says he filled Tony in
on their plan, he's for it and wants Steve to be the assassin. Steve
laughs. He's excited, Bo trusts him to do this? Bo says if a Brady does it
then Andre will know something is up. Steve says that is what they get for
having such squeaky clean reputations. Bo asks Steve if he can do this.
Steve says there is nothing to worry about. Steve says he'll talk to Kayla
and let him know. Kayla returns and Bo quickly runs off. Kayla asks Steve
what they are up to? Steve says he and Bo were kicking around life. She says
what about it? He says things like knowing Pocket is here safe and sound,
and that his daughter thinks what he says matters again. Kayla asks if he
feels okay? Steve feels better than okay, he thinks he's happy. Kayla says
well they are all happy, but she still wants to know what is going on. Steve
says he and Bo were talking about the stunt he pulled at the hospital. Kayla
says he was angry. Steve says he was, but his head was clear and he was in
control. He doesn't want Kayla to be afraid of what happened. Kayla says
she's not. Steve reminds her of Bo's plan to trap Andre. HE says Bo
needs him to help out. Kayla asks what he'll be doing? Steve thinks
she's going to hate this. When she hears the plan, she is not happy. Steve
says he's the only one that Andre would believe would kill Stefano. He
knows the Brady's have cause, but there isn't a killer in her family.
Kayla says she could do it for what he did to him. Steve says she
couldn't, but he could as he has a history of violence. He says nobody
knows what crazy Steve will do thanks to the DiMeras. She says this is too
risky. Steve says it's the only way to save the people he loves and keep
them safe. He says if she says no then he won't do it. Kayla asks if it is
okay for her to be scared? He says he's scared too. They hug. He says how
about they scare them for a change. Kayla is worried she'll lose him
Bo returns to the hospital. Tony tells Bo that Stefano is paranoid, he's
dreaming the Bradys will kill him. Tony says Stefano has no control here, he
wants out. Tony says Stefano won't be kept here past tomorrow. Bo hopes
Tony isn't having second thoughts. He says he's not. Bo says good,
because Stefano will have to die tonight.

At the pub, Nick is having lunch with the boys. He's quizzing them in
chemistry, they seem to know all the abbreviations from the periodic table of
elements. Billie soon joins them. Nick says he needs to talk to this lady,
he'll be right over at the other table. Billie tells Nick he seems comfortable
with this step-father thing. Nick tells Billie he has a problem, a big one. She
says fatherhood not as easy as he thought it would be? He says it is work, but
he feels guilty they are stuck with him given he hasn't even babysat before.
Billie says it gets easier. Nick just hopes if he takes care of them, that maybe
he'll get another chance with Chelsea when China Lee gets out. One of the boys
comes over and please asks for the ketchup. Billie didn't think kids said
please. Nick says something is off with these kids, he's been thinking about
it. He says these kids are geniuses, they speak French and other languages
he's never heard of. Billie wonders if this is just a case of proud parents
syndrome, but Nick says it isn't. He says these kids have had an amazing
education, something China Lee probably couldn't have given them. He says that
means these kids aren't China Lee's. Billie says if the Las Vegas
authorities gave the kids to him, then things must check out. Nick says he's
the step-father, that's all they looked into. Plus they wanted to get the kids
off their hands. Nick worries, what if these kids were kidnapped? What if
they've been threatened not to tell him this? Billie offers to do some digging
for him. He says she's awesome. Billie says she knows, she just hopes she can
get him some answers. Nick says if China Lee is their mom, he'll personally
put her up for mother of the year. If not, he has to reunite them with their
parents. Nick gives her as much information as he has on the boys. She says
she'll do what she can. Later Nick and the boys leave the pub and are followed
by a man in a grey suit and white hat.
On the flight to Vegas, Chelsea asks Max if he wants a drink? He says no thanks.
She says turning down free alcohol, is he okay. Max says yeah. Chelsea says
Stephanie told her everything. Max says why don't they put up a billboard! Max
is furious, he's losing his money, the garage and who knows what happens to
the girls if they fail. Max says right now the most important thing is getting
those girls away from Rawlings.
In the service area, Stephanie talks to Jeremy. She says she kinda sorta told
her dad he was in trouble. Jeremy asks if she's out of her mind? Stephanie
says he'll help them, but Jeremy says help him to jail is more like it. He
says when they land that he's running for it, he's going to Canada or
Mexico, anywhere but jail. She asks how could he! What about them? He says come
with him! She says but her friends, her family. He says they'll have each
other, it will be an adventure. She says this isn't white water rafting. Where
will they sleep? What will they eat? She says Shawn and Belle did this, it was a
disaster. Jeremy asks if she has better idea? She says her dad will help them.
Jeremy doesn't trust him or anyone but her. HE says he'll need an answer from
her, they will be landing soon.
After Jeremy leaves, Chelsea shows up and Steph cries on her shoulder. Stephanie
tells Chelsea that she told her dad about Jeremy, hoping he'd help her. She
says Jeremy is furious she told her dad. Chelsea says when this is over he may
cool down and realize she only wanted to help. She says it will be too late,
Jeremy is planning to run when they land. Chelsea says this is messed up.
Stephanie says there is more, Jeremy wants her to come and she hasn't given
him an answer. She says if she lets him go then she'll lose him, but she
doesn't want to lose him. Chelsea tells her to relax and take a break,
she'll tend to the clients.
Jett finds Chelsea and says as soon as they get to Vegas, go to the hotel and
lock her door, don't answer it for anyone. She says he is scaring her. He says
things are going to get ugly. She says so he's going to bust Jeremy? Jett says
he has a job to do, he can't give him a pass. Jett soon realizes Chelsea knows
something and isn't telling him. He says if someone gets hurt, can she live
with it? Chelsea tells Jett that Stephanie says Jeremy is going to bail out when
they land, he wants Stephanie to go with them.
Max tries to talk to Chelsea in the service area. She can't talk to him, every
time she sees him all she thinks about is . . . Max says the kiss? Yeah he wants
to rip her clothes off too! She asks him not to do this. Max says there is
something going on between them, they can't ignore it. She can't deal with this
now. Max says fine he won't push until they get back to Salem. She says she
might not be, she might be running away with Jeremy once they hit Vegas.
In the hospital, Sami wants EJ to give her the letters back, but he won't. He
insists they read them together. He thinks they are more like Santo and Colleen
than they realize. Sami says they look like them, that is where the similarities
end. She says Colleen was headed for the convent, she's a married woman. Sami
says Colleen didn't have any sense to stay away from anyone named DiMera, she
does! EJ says they should begin, he begins to read Santo's letter, using the
Santo accent. Santo wrote the letter after Sister Mary Anne had appeared and
frightened her away. He had finally realized he placed unreasonable demands on
her, to choose him over her family and the world. He apologized and swore to
make things right, even if it meant ruining his own good name. Santo says he
knew what had to be done. Sami says poor Colleen, she wonders what Santo had
planned for her. EJ says Colleen wasn't as innocent as she appeared. He says
her father sent her to the church to keep her out of trouble. Sami says back
then in Ireland there weren't many options for a woman. EJ says she was trapped
in the church like Sami is trapped in her marriage. Sami says she is not
trapped, she chose to marry Lucas, she loves Lucas. EJ suggests they keep
reading. Sami reads Colleen's letter.
In the past, Father Mallory asks Colleen if there is something she should be
telling him? Sister Mary Anne has said that she saw ten toes poking out from
behind the drapes at Santo DiMera's place and her scarf on the bed. Sister
Mary knows Colleen was with that man. Father Mallory asks if that is true?
Colleen is speechless, Sister Mary Anne knows she was there and her silence is
her confession. Sister Mary Anne says she doesn't belong in God's services,
she will lead the others into sin. Father Mallory says he is here not to judge,
but to listen. He says if she says she wasn't there then she'll believe her,
but God will know the truth. Colleen said she wasn't with Mr. DiMera. Sister
Mary Anne asks how her scarf ended up in his room? Colleen says she isn't the
only one to own a scarf in town. The Sister knows it was her scarf as people
complement her on it all the time. Suddenly Santo shows up. He says he has come
to apologize to the sister for his rudeness earlier and a donation to the
Back in the hospital, Sami says he was inventive. EJ says and caring, he was
saving her reputation. Sami says it was his fault her reputation was on the
block. EJ says this wasn't about a quick roll in the hay, he loved Colleen and
would do anything for her. Sami says he'd do anything to get what he wanted,
something he passed down to the other DIMeras. EJ makes a comment (missed it)
and Sami calls him arrogant and says she hates him. She yells at EJ to get out!
Sami calms down, EJ says they need to put everything in prospective here. He
says this whole vendetta isn't about their families, it's about one man and
Back in the past, Santo had brought a woman to the church with him. She runs the
inn and has been helping Mr. DiMera take care of his son. Santo says both he and
Mrs. Fitzpatrick lost spouses recently. He talks about how they have formed a
bond, and when the sister came knocking, well they were consoling each other. He
asked Mrs. Fitzpatrick to hide behind the drapes, he didn't want her to get
the wrong idea. He says he's sorry for deceiving her. Father Mallory thinks
Sister Mary Anne should be apologizing here. Mrs. Fitzpatrick is wearing
Colleen's scarf, which she's passing off as her own. Father Mallory thinks
this was a huge misunderstanding, he makes Sister Mary Anne apologize to them
all. She does and then walks off. Mrs. Fitzpatrick then asks to speak with the
Father in private. Santo tells Colleen he hopes he has kept her out of trouble.
Colleen says Sister Mary Anne is right, she's not fit to serve the church. She
says she has lied, she never lied before in her life, before meeting him. She
begs Santo to go away and stay away from her. Santo says every time she denies
how she feels, it too is a lie. He says the lord knows this too.
In the hospital, Sami thinks if Santo loved Colleen then he should have let her
go. EJ says Colleen was in denial, just like Sami. Sami says she's in denial?
EJ says in spite of everything Colleen was taught, she didn't want to be a
nun. She wanted to see the world, watch the opera, his grandfather could have
given that to her. Sami says Colleen was young and Santo took advantage of her
youth and her innocence. She thinks Santo shouldn't have used her and her
innocence to get what he wanted. She says the proof is in the letters. She reads
Colleen wrote how she was weak and she knew it, she begged God to protect her
and keep her in the arms of the church, but he was far away that night yet
Santo's accomplice Mrs. Fitzpatrick was right there.
In the past, Colleen was praying at the church altar. Father Mallory said he
wanted to thank MR. DiMera for his generosity, but he had left. He asked Colleen
to do something for him. She said she would do anything to make up for upsetting
Sister Mary Anne. Father Mallory says Mrs. Fitzpatrick is watching the
neighborhood children, but it's more than she can handle. He volunteered her
to help, she'd be working at the inn a few days a week!
Back in the hospital, Sami calls Santo a manipulative Italian gigolo. EJ thinks
he rescued Colleen from a life she hadn't chosen. Sami can't believe EJ is
defending him. She says Santo seduced her. EJ says Santo knew this was destiny,
he can feel it and he knows Sami feels it too. Sami continues reading the
letter, Colleen said that she had sought sanctuary in the church, but Santo was
tearing down those walls with Father Mallory's help. She says her sinful
desires were too strong, not even her faith could save her. EJ and Sami keep
arguing over Santo and Colleen. EJ says they both know that Colleen and Santo
were meant to be together. Sami says for him to stop with that, it wasn't
destiny. She says Santo wouldn't give her a choice, he wouldn't take no for
an answer. She says reading these letters is like reading Colleen's
destruction, it's hardly romantic. EJ keeps saying it was fate, their first
meeting was fate. Sami says they had a choice. EJ says exactly, to choose their
fate or reject it.
September 6, 2007
On the plane, Jeremy is packing to run. Stephanie says he can't do this,
he promised to help Max with the girls. Jeremy says Max will figure
something out. She says he can't fly this plane! She says he came here to
make things right. Jeremy goes off, how he has to look out for himself, how
can't trust anyone but her. He asks again if she is coming with him? She
says fly the girls out, then she'll go with him. He says no way, the plane
will be tracked and he'll be arrested the minute they land. She thinks
they'd know he was making things right. He says yeah and he'd only get 5
years instead of 10. Stephanie warns him that he could end up on the DiMeras
hit list after this. Jeremy says they won't find him either, no one will.
Jeremy then takes off!
In a bar/casino in Vegas, Chelsea tells the girls not to worry, Max and
Jeremy will get them out of this mess, they can trust them. Chelsea talks to
Max, the girls are scared and not sure they can trust them. Max doesn't
blame them, the last person they got on a plane after trusting was Andre,
and he sold them into prostitution. They discuss how the plan won't work
if Jeremy doesn't fly them out. Chelsea says Stephanie said she wouldn't
leave with him unless he flew these girls out first. Max refuses to let
Steph run away with him, even if he has to carry her off. Chelsea says
she'll help him. Max tells Ilsa that the car is here, they are going to go
to the plane now. He says no more Vegas and no more Rawlings. Ilsa kisses
Max on the cheek and says he's a hero, just like in the movies, only for
Jett talks with two agents about the plan to bust Rawlings and Jeremy. Jett
says he will go to Rawlings and tell him that Jeremy needs to see him, there
is a problem with the cargo. The two agents wish they had Jeremy in custody,
but Jett says they can't take the chance something could go wrong or get
blown. Jett says his first and only priority is Rawlings, he'll handle
Horton on his own. They wonder if he can bust Jeremy, given they go so far
Jett meets with Max and Chelsea. He tells them that it is Andre and Rawlings
they want, if Jeremy comes clean, he can avoid jail. Chelsea says not to
worry, Stephanie will work her magic, Jeremy will be onboard. Stephanie
shows up in tears and says think again, Jeremy took off. Jett says his is
not good. He says he could fly them out, but he needs Rawlings in custody
first. Chelsea says that is dangerous for him, but he says he's in enough
trouble as is. Max heads to the plane, Jett wants Chelsea to go to her room
and lock herself in. She refuses, she says she's staying. She won't let
him face Rawlings alone. He says he has two agents and is ISA. She says
she's staying. Jett says she's such a pain, something could go wrong, he
can risk the chance of something happening . . . especially not to her. He
says he'd die before he let anything happen to her. Meanwhile in the
plants, a gun is aimed at Jett! Suddenly the gun shoots, Jett is hit in the
back and goes down! During the commotion, Rawlings slips out with a gun.
Chelsea stays with Jett and tells him to stay with her. She's in tears.
On the plane, Stephanie and Max are there, Isla asks what is going on?
Stephanie explains Jeremy had a change of heart, he saved himself. Ilsa said
Jeremy wasn't a bad guy, he just got mixed up with the wrong person. Later
Stephanie and Max talk, they talk about the two of them. Stephanie admits
that after Max, she swore not to be hurt again, and Jeremy was perfect. She
just seems to be going from one jerk to bigger ones, not that she means
he's a jerk . . . even though he did go from Chelsea to her to Mimi to
Abby. Max says so he's a jerk. Ilsa interrupts, she asks if Jett
shouldn't be here by now? Suddenly the news cuts in over the speakers on
the plane about a shooting on the strip. Max decides to find out what is
going on, JEtt should be here. Rawlings shows up and says their buddy
can't make it, he knows they don't have a pilot now, so he's happy to
give it a shot.
At the hospital, Sami and EJ are still bickering over Colleen and Santo.
Sami says Santo left Colleen with no choice but to go back to that inn and
temptation. EJ does agree there, but knows there is more. Colleen goes back
to the inn, when Santo opened the door and smiled at her, she wrote that she
knew this was right. EJ says see, Colleen knew this was the right thing to
do and didn't feel any shame. Sami doubts that. She reads the letter, how
even though she knew this was right, she was eaten alive by guilt and was
sure she'd burn in hell.
In the past, Colleen arrives at the inn on a stormy night. She takes the
storm as a sign from God that she should be serving God and this is wrong.
Santo tells her that for a long time he thought his cause was to his family,
to a life chosen for him. She asks if that is wrong? He says it is wrong to
live for others expectations. She says that doing your duty is more
important than doing what you feel in your heart. She asks how they can do
that? How can they live for their own selfish desires.
Sami tells EJ she knows just how she feels. EJ says he's sure. Sami asks
what that means? He says Colleen is duty bound to the church like she is to
Lucas. Sami doesn't see her marriage to Lucas as a duty, she loves him.
What she's talking about is this DiMera vendetta, she can't help but
feel it's her duty to do whatever she has to in order to end it. She
understands how she's torn between her duty and her heart. EJ says he
understands too, it's almost as if the two of them live inside their
souls. She says he is unbelievable, he doesn't give up. EJ says Santo felt
duty bound to his family, he felt the same way his whole life until a few
months ago. EJ continues reading the letters.
Santo tells Colleen that he felt not long ago that his power was limitless
and love was for fools. He says then one day he saw the most beautiful woman
he had seen, and in that moment everything changed. He says the more he came
to know this woman, the more he realized, that his life was without meaning
without this woman. He tells her that she's shivering, she will catch a cold
from these wet clothes. Colleen says it's not the cold making her shiver.
He says he will get her some towels to at least dry her hair. He had her sit
by the fire where it was warm. He tells her that she can stop when she
wants, whatever happens or does not, is her decision.
EJ is reading the letters, Santo wrote he really wanted it to be Colleen's
decision. Sami tells EJ if he wants to stay here and keep reading, no more
comparisons. She says they aren't the reincarnations of Santo and Colleen.
EJ says fine, no more comparisons. The reading continues. Colleen put her
hand on Santo's chest and the two kissed. She hopes that God would forgive
her. Sami reads Colleen's letter, in which she talks about Santo
showing her love like she never could have imagined, and she wondered how it
could possible be a sin. Back in the past, the two continued to kiss. They
undressed and finally made love. Sami seems stunned by the letters and turns
from EJ. They continued reading the letters. Santo wanted Colleen to stay
with him, but she says the church is her home. She tells Santo she doesn't
know what she wants right now. She says she does feel free, free as a bird.
He says because she is free. He wanted her to come away with him.
Sami rants that Santo has no right, he's destroying her life, why can't
she leave him alone. EJ asks are they reading the same letters? She is a
willing participant. A nurse interrupts, she needs to give Sami another
injection and tells her to just get some rest. The nurse leaves, Sami keeps
arguing with EJ about Santo and Colleen. EJ felt they were just like them.
They continue arguing, EJ feels about her as Santo feels for Colleen. He
says he loves her and he won't give up on her no matter what. He also says
she must feel the same way. Suddenly Sami's drug begins kicking in. EJ is
telling Sami he is perfect for her, they understand one another. As he's
talking Sami is getting woozy. EJ says maybe now she'll let her guard down
and tell him the truth about how she feels. She says she always tells the
truth. He says sure she does. He says be honest, tell him that this
connection is in his head, tell him she doesn't want to do this whenever
they are together . . . EJ kisses her! In the past, Santo and Colleen
are kissing each other. Colleen has to go, Santo asks if he'll see her
again. She says yes. She then leaves his room. At the hospital, Sami pushes
EJ away and screams at him to get out, which he does.
September 7, 2007
On the plane, Rawlings has a gun and tells Max it looks like he's planning
to take his girls on a field trip without him. Rawlings says he'll be taking
the plane up, but Max says no way. Rawlings knocks Max to the floor with his
gun as Stephanie runs to him. Rawlings says he has a plane to fly, any other
objections? Max says the police are onto him, he won't escape. Max says look
around him, he asks how he's going to beat the odds here? Max tries to smack
Rawlings with a fire extinguisher, but fails to hit him. Max tells Rawlings
that he sold these girls into an escort service, no more. Rawlings tells the
ladies to show Max how upset the really are. They all pull guns on Max and
Stephanie! Rawlings calls them his little angels, his arch angels! Rawlings
says Max is looking a little shell shocked. Max asks what is going on? Max
says Ilsa here, she's the cream of the crop, lightest fingers in town and
one heck of an actress. Ilsa says she's the Meryll Streep of Bucharest.
Rawlings says nobody can fleece a high roller like she can. She shows him wads
of cash she's stolen today alone. Rawlings says flights have been
transporting cash all summer long, loads of it. Max says Jett is onto him, he
works for the ISA. Rawlings says he knows, he's not worried though.
Stephanie's cell rings, a text is coming in. Rawlings says be his guest. She
reads it, Chelsea says Jett has been shot. Rawlings says like he said, he's
not worried about Jett. Max attacks Rawlings, but Stephanie says let him go as
the ladies all have guns on them. Ilsa grabs Max and Stephanie's cell
phones. He tells his angels if they so much as twitch, ventilate them! He says
it's time for them to take a ride. Ilsa holds a gun on Max. Max wonders how
dumb he could have been, he should have minded his own business. Rawlings
comes on over the intercom and tells everyone to fasten their seat belts.
Stephanie asks Max what plan B is? He says pray. Max tells Chelsea he's
sorry for getting her into this, but she says she was the one who introduced
him to Jeremy and got him into this. She doesn't know what she was thinking,
she actually believed Jeremy loved her. She says honestly she still wants to
believe it, but the minute he had to chose, he ran. Stephanie asks what
Rawlings will do to them. Max doesn't know. Max promises to protect her, but
she says she doesn't want protection, she wants to kick some butts. Rawlings
comes out of the cockpit, they are in the air now. He says he has good news
and bad news. Rawlings says the good news is the autopilot is set for the
paradise they've been dreaming about. The girls cheer. The bad news is the
flight is over booked. He drops a bag in Max's lap. The girls once again aim
gun at them, Rawlings orders them to deplane. Max says if they don't show up
in Salem as the flight plan filed shows . . . Rawlings says he already has a
revised plan filed. He says by time people start asking questions, he and his
angels will be long gone. The girls laugh, Max warns them they'll all end up
in jail while Rawlings goes free. Ilsa tells him to stop making this foolish
noise. Rawlings then demands Max and Stephanie to go touch the sky. In the
bags are parachutes. Stephanie says she's not putting that on. Rawlings says
they'll hit a lot harder if they don't. Max says it's pitch black, they
don't know where they are or will land. Rawlings says it is more about how
they land, so put the chutes on.
At the casino, Chelsea stays with Jett. A guard says EMS is on the way.
Chelsea tells Jett to stay with her. The other agent stays with them too,
people keep saying EMS is on the way. Chelsea feels his hands are getting
cold, she cries he's going into shock. The EMTs arrive, Chelsea calls
Stephanie and leaves a message begging her to call her when she gets this.
Later Jett is in an ambulance, Chelsea is with him. Chelsea tells him to rest,
save his strength. He says there is something he wants to tell her before he
dies. She says he won't die. He tells her to just let him say this. Chelsea
doesn't want him to say anything, she says they'll be back in Salem before
they know it. Jett tells Chelsea that he loves her! She thinks he doesn't
know what he's saying, it's the blood loss. Jett says no, he said it and
he meant it.
Back in Salem, Lucas shows up in Sami's hospital room, he sees a flower pot
has been smashed, it was what she threw at EJ as he was running out of the
room. Lucas wonders what happened, Sami says she was frustrated. Sami asks
Lucas about Kate, Lucas explains Kate thinks Andre is out for revenge so
she's staying with her dad for protection. Lucas sees Sami isn't
listening. She claims she was thinking, but doesn't say about what. He knows
that look, she says she was thinking about Colleen. Lucas looks at the
letters, Sami says she has to confess, she read them while he was gone. He
thinks that's not fair, she couldn't enjoy them without his commentary.
Sami admits to Lucas she didn't read them alone, EJ was here reading them.
Lucas says so he came back. Lucas isn't happy. Sami says EJ was insistent on
reading them. She did it to get him out of here all the sooner. She says
nothing happened, they just read letters. Lucas says okay, fine. Anything
steamy happen between Santo and Colleen? She says he might say that. She says
Santo got want he wanted. Lucas says they both knew it was coming, why is she
sad? Sami says she is sad for Colleen, she had given her life to the church
and was happy, until this guy came and turned her whole world upside down.
Sami says Santo wouldn't stop pursuing her, and the temptation . . . Sami
asks Lucas why he's looking at her like that. He asks if she is talking
about Santo and Colleen, or her and EJ? She says that is a horrible thing to
say! She says she was honest with him, these letters have nothing to do with
her or EJ. He says nothing? He says he comes in here, the place is a mess,
Sami is distant and he finds out she's been reading love letters alone with
the man who raped her, he feels he has the right to ask some questions here.
Sami says okay. Lucas says hew drew a line for his mom, it's time to draw
one for EJ. Sami says she needs EJ to end the vendetta. Lucas says that
vendetta again, he's sick of it, he thinks it is an excuse. She asks how he
could call this vendetta an excuse after all her family has been through.
Lucas says because it is an excuse. He says EJ uses the feud as a reason to
see her, and he's sick of it. Sami says too bad, she needs him. Lucas is
furious. Sami says she needs EJ to end this vendetta. Lucas says nobody can
stop Stefano, but Sami says she and EJ can. He says so they are a team now? He
wants her to admit that she wants EJ around for reasons that don't pertain
to the vendetta. Lucas says do you know what he wants? Take a guess. Sami is
furious, how could he think she'd use this vendetta to spend time with EJ.
She says the misery that the DiMeras have caused her family for so many years
. . . . Lucas doesn't want to fight, but Sami says they have to have this
out. A nurse shows up and says there has been an emergency, they need to stay
in here. Lucas of curse insists he go check this out.
In Stefano's room, Rolf tells Stefano that they should be heading home
shortly. Tony and EJ are with him, EJ says he's looking very strong. Stefano
takes EJ and Tony's hands, he says they must forgive one another. He says
otherwise they will all die alone. HE says it is a great comfort to have them
both here by his side. He says they have been through a lot, but family
conquers all. EJ says he believes it is love that conquers all. Rolf leaves to
take care of things, he tells the boys to keep him quiet, no stress. Two
orderlies show up to take Stefano out.
Steve is at the hospital waiting to kill Stefano. A nurse sees him
hanging around and trying to look into Stefano's room. She stops him. He
says he's here checking on his friend Stefano, but she can't discuss
patients with anyone but family. Steve walks off and hides around the corner.
Roman and Bo arrive at the hospital. Roman says he's been waiting for 20
years for this. Stefano is brought out into the hall on a gurney, Roman
insists they talk to Stefano alone. EJ won't leave. Bo says it won't take
long for them to prove Andre sliced up Benjy's liver to save him. However
they are here to make sure Stefano makes it home in one piece. Stefano says if
his survival depends on the Salem PD then he might as well slit his wrists
now. Bo says it's their duty to protect the public, even him. Steve shows
up, EJ demands he be kept from his father. Roman tells Steve to back off.
Steve begins ranting about how Stefano is one tough SOB, he's the phoenix,
he's the man. Tony thanks Steve for his assessment, can they now get on with
this? Steve says Tony and EJ aren't as tough as Stefano. Stefano says
Stephen . . . Steve says he's here boss, whatever he needs. Stefano wants to
hear what Steve has to say. Steve says they have a long history, some good and
some bad. Stefano says he was a good soldier, though he did get confused for
time to time. He says he's not confused now, he has to apologize for what
happened before the surgery. He says he and Benjy are close, he didn't like
what happened, he lost it. Stefano understands. He says Benjy is his son, and
he had no idea Benjy would be hurt. Steve says he realized that, he knew he
couldn't hurt his son, family is everything to him. Stefano says nothing is
more important than family. Steve says this was Andre's doing, he has gone
solo. Steve again says no hard feelings, let's shake. Steve holds out his
hand. Roman says Steve and Stefano can shoot the breeze at Stefano's place,
they have to go. Stefano thinks this isn't necessary, he doesn't need
this. Steve tells Roman and Bo to take a hike, but Tony says Steve is the one
who should leave. Steve says fine he's out of here. Stefano stops him and
says come back. He tells Steve to come to him, they shake hands. Stefano says
he has been a good soldier, they will talk. Steve says they will. He says this
is for Benjy and then stabs Stefano! There is blood everywhere, Roman and Bo
grabs Steve and pull him away. Stefano is in shock and looks at Tony, who
injects him in the arm with a syringe. Steve is cuffed, Tony screams for help.
EJ runs over, Stefano has stopped breathing. EJ screams for a doctor. A doctor
runs over and EJ yells do something. The doctor says he's sorry, this man is
dead. Steve is laughing, EJ tries to attack him. EJ screams he'll kill him!
Tony says he can't be dead, but a doctor says there are too many wounds.
Tony demands to have Steve locked up, Bo says that he will be. Tony doesn't
believe them, Steve is part of their family. Bo says Steve is the way he is
because of Tony's family. As EJ is morning and crying over Stefano, Lucas
shows up and sees what is going on. He can't believe it finally happened,
that Stefano is finally dead. Tony asks Lucas if he's enjoying the show?
Lucas says the nurse said there was an emergency. Tony says Steve stabbed his
father, so nice of the Brady's to pass on their dirty work to a member of
the family related by marriage. It's impressive really, using a psychopath
to do their work. Tony walks off, Lucas tells EJ he is sorry. EJ says like
hell you are sorry, you are not sorry at all. Lucas says no he's not, he's
glad Stefano is gone, he's been shoving this vendetta down their throats for
20 years. He says now EJ can't come near Sami anymore, he has no more
excuses to. Lucas says never come near Sami again.
Later EJ and Tony are forced to stay in a room and watch what is going on in
thr hall. The whole scene is a crime scene, photos are being taken. Tony
can't believe he's gone, EJ doesn't. EJ says father has died many many
times, why should this time be different. He says he's the phoenix, he'll
rise again. Tony says in their dreams perhaps. EJ says no, he will rise and
walk again and will be blood hungry. Tony says not this time, he's sorry.
Back at the crime scene, Bo covers Stefano with a sheet and smirks.
Lucas returns to Sami's room. He says he has some good news. He says ding
dong the witch is dead! Sami asks what is going on? Lucas says Stefano is
dead. Lucas says the vendetta is over, she is safe and she doesn't have to
see EJ ever again. He hugs Sami, who doesn't seem as thrilled as he is.
