Bo is at the pier. He's on the phone with Abe, he says he followed Andre
here. Bo needs a favor, Steve was stabbed by Andre and he had to leave him at
the funeral home. He says he called an ambulance, but Steve ran off before they
came. Abe says he's at the hospital now, and he's headed to Kayla's so
he'll tell her what is going on. Bo says it was a bad wound, so they have to
find him before he bleeds out. Later Bo watches as Andre sneaks into a
warehouse. He says gotcha!
At Kayla's, Kayla and Stephanie are arguing. Stephanie wants to leave, but
Kayla says Abe is coming over to take her statement about Jeremy. There is a
pounding on the door, Kayla thinks it is Abe and tells Stephanie to answer it.
It turns out it is Steve, who collapses! They get him to the couch. He says he
has to get to Bo, Bo was trailing Andre. Kayla sees he's been stabbed and
knows he needs to be at the hospital. Stephanie calls for and ambulance as Steve
passes out. Kayla tells Stephanie to get blankets, they have to keep him warm.
Kayla is putting pressure on the wound. Steve wakes up, he's agitated and
needs to call Bo. Stephanie says let him call if it will settle him down. They
give him a phone.
Abe is about to knock on the door of Kayla's place when Bo calls, saying he
has Andre cornered in a warehouse, there is only one way in and out. Abe wants
him to stay put until back-up arrives. Bo says he'll be careful, but Abe says
Andre could have that place set to blow up, it's his MO. Bo says fine, get the
back up here. He asks Abe if he's seen Steve yet, Abe says no. He is at
Kayla's place now, he'll let him know when he knows more. He tells Bo not to
Later Bo gets a call from Steve. He asks Bo if he got Andre, is he okay? Bo asks
where he is. Steve says he came home. He wants to know about Andre. Bo says
he's cornered in an old shoe factory, he's waiting for backup. Steve thinks
Andre must have Roman there. Bo says if Andre makes a move he isn't going to
sit and watch. Steve says he'll be there in ten minutes.
Abe arrives as Steve is insisting he go help Bo. Abe tells Steve to relax, Bo is
fine and backup is on the way. Steve says that is what he needs to hear. Kayla
wonders where the ambulance is. Stephanie holds pressure on the wound as Kayla
goes to see where the ambulance is. Abe then talks to Stephanie about Jeremy,
how he needs to stand up for what he did and deal with his punishment. She asks
if they can deal with this later. Abe gets a call from Bo, he has to go but says
they will talk about this. Abe then leaves. Steve wakes up and asks Stephanie
for the truth, he heard what Abe said to her about harboring a fugitive. He knew
something was up when he found Jeremy's ID here. She says she doesn't need
another lecture. Steve doesn't want to lecture her. Steve fades out, Kayla
returns with the paramedics. They take care of Steve, who has a strong pulse.
Kayla says he'll be fine, it takes a lot more than this to stop her dad. The
EMS take Steve to the hospital. Kayla is frantic, Stephanie offers to stay here
with Pocket while Kayla goes with dad. Kayla says you? Stephanie says yes me,
unless you don't trust me. Kayla asks Stephanie is she saying she forgives
her? Stephanie says for narcing on Jeremy, no. However family does come first,
she knows that. Kayla says she is proud of her. Kayla says call her if there is
any problem she'll have her cell. She'll also call with updates on Steve.
Later Stephanie thinks about doing some studying. She then grabs the phone and
calls Jeremy to check up on him. Se asks if he's still on the road? Is he
still going to Seattle? She knows he's getting her messages, stop ignoring
them and call her.
At the pub, Sami and Lucas have a bunch of volunteers helping them pass out
fliers for Roman. Lucas tells Sami she hasn't gotten any sleep, let him do
this. Sami says she won't go home and rest until they find her dad and end
this vendetta. Lucas says the vendetta won't end, the DiMeras are in this
forever. Sami says she has to do this to protect their family. Lucas wants their
family to be safe, and stress isn't good for her or the babies. Sami says she
can't sit in the apartment stress free while everyone looks for her dad. She
says she knows he doesn't think they can end this vendetta, but she does and
so does EJ. Lucas says EJ doesn't want this to end, the only thing he wants is
her. Suddenly EJ walks in! EJ heard on the radio they were looking for
volunteers, he wants to help. Lucas doesn't think he cares, but he says he
does for Sami's sake. Lucas thinks he probably know where Roman is and is
waiting for the right time to release him, to play the hero. EJ offers to help
them anyway he can, they need a DiMera who knows how a DiMera thinks. Sami says
they are posting fliers, she wants Lucas and EJ to go out and put fliers up.
Lucas doesn't want to, so Sami threatens to go with him instead of staying
here! Lucas and EJ agree to work together. She begs them both to find her dad.
EJ says they will. EJ tells Lucas they should go. Lucas tells Sami to call if
she needs anything at all. She says she will. Lucas promises to return with her
Outside the pub, Chelsea finds Max hitting on some girl, saying after they pass
these fliers out they can go back to his place. She says she must be Elizabeth,
Max told her about her. The woman says no, so Chelsea starts rattling out names,
causing the woman to run off. Max asks what she's doing? Chelsea says saving
him. He says from what, celibacy? She says from himself, the last thing he needs
is another bimbo. She says he goes through women far too quickly. She goes down
the list, ending with Stephanie. Max says they are just friends, Chelsea says
friends who make out? Max asks why she's so interested in them? Chelsea says
because he likes her. She wonders why he's ignoring Stephanie. Max says he's
just busy. He tells her that girl he chased off, he likes that there was no risk
with her, that he wouldn't get burned. Chelsea says he thinks Stephanie would
hurt him? Max says not on purpose, but if Jeremy comes back yes. Chelsea and Max
later pass out fliers as Chelsea says Jeremy left Salem, so Max needs to be
honest and tell her how he feels. He claims he is like her buddy. Chelsea knows
what is going on between them, she says don't miss out on a chance for love as
it's all they have in life sometimes. He says then what happened with Nick,
didn't she dump him for Jett? He won't talk about this anymore and walks of.
Later Max returns and finds Chelsea is waiting around. She demands he talk about
this, she wants him to admit the truth. Max says the truth is she is getting on
his nerves. Chelsea wants to know if he likes Stephanie, as she really likes
him. Max asks if she said that? Chelsea thought he wasn't interested? Max
tells her to stop talking. Chelsea tells her that Stephanie likes him a lot,
maybe enough to forget Jeremy. However there is no for sure with love. Max tells
her she should start writing a blog, she can call it butting into other
people's business. Chelsea walks off, Max again thinks about being stuck in
the cave with Stephanie.
EJ and Lucas show up at the warehouse where Bo is waiting for backup. Bo tries
to convince them to leave, but Andre grabs and holds a gun on Lucas. He is glad
to see them all here and tells Bo to put his gun down now! Bo won't and tells
Andre he's stuck, back up is on the way. Andre says it's not here yet, so
he's in charge. Lucas tells Bo not to put his gun down, but EJ says he's not
bluffing. Andre says he's not. He says if Bo shoots him, he'll shoot Lucas
and he's the only one who knows where Roman is as well. Bo eventually puts his
gun down. Andre says well done. Andre tells him to kick it over to him, so Bo
does. Andre says Lucas has a chance to break a little longer now. The
helicopters begin showing up. Bo tells Andre to tell them where Roman is, his
time is running out. Andre says his time maybe, Roman's definitely. He pushes
Lucas toward EJ. He plans to take both EJ and Lucas hostage to get away! Andre
says so Bo isn't tempted to follow, he shows him a grenade. He says Roman is
in the warehouse, he better get in there soon. He throws the grenade in and runs
with EJ and Lucas. Bo runs to the warehouse door, which is blown open by the
Later Abe shows up, he and Bo look in the warehouse which is on fire. Bo
explains to Abe what happened, how Andre took Lucas and EJ as hostages and Roman
wasn't in the warehouse. However he did find the folio in there. Bo thinks if
it can help end the vendetta it may help find Roman.
Back at the pub, Sami is calling various hospitals to find out if Roman may have
been checked in as a John Doe, but she comes up with dead ends. Grandpa Shawn
shows up, she asks where he's going? He says to look for her father. Sami says
there is a way he can help, tell her what happened in Ireland. She says he
can't keep this story any longer, he can't sacrifice his son over something
that happened fifty years ago. Sami says she believes in him and that he'll do
the right thing. Sami says she knows he's scared, but they all are. She says
this can't go on, not knowing when the DiMeras will strike next. She says they
have to find a way to end this, to find dad, to stop the bombings and
kidnappings. She says he's the key and he can't be angry at them all for
wanting to know what happened. She says dad's life is at stake here and he can
help them understand how this vendetta started. She begs him to tell her what he
knows, they can end this. Shawn says he is ashamed, it's not fear that has
been holding his tongue, it is shame. Sami tells him that he has nothing to be
ashamed of, this family has forgiven her for everything she's done. She says
they love him and nothing he can do can change that. Shawn knows that. Sami says
he is a good man, they all know what a wonderful man he is. She says he has to
tell them what he knows, daddy's life is at stake. Shawn pours a shot of
booze. Sami says they are running out of time, tell her what he knows. He says
he can't go back, he can't changed what happened .
Shawn leaves the pub, then Andre shows up. Sami thinks he's Tony at first, but
realizes it's Andre. She demands to know where her dad is. HE says he has two
other hostages right now on his mind, and he has to make a difficult decision.
She asks what he wants. He says he wants her to choose who lives and who dies.
She says if he doesn't know who he's talking about, but he says she knows
them intimately. She says Lucas? Where is he? Andre says that is one. He says
Elvis is the other, and she must make a choice to save only one. She says one?
He says now don't be greedy. He gives her the address where to meet him with
the answer as to who will die, her husband or the man she claims to hate. Andre
leaves as Sami cries she can't.
September 25, 2007
At the hospital, Steve is in a room and hooked up to machines. Stephanie
comes in to visit her dad. He asks what she's doing here. Stephanie says mom
said he was doing okay, but she wanted to see for herself. She left Pocket with
Grandma Caroline, she had to come see him as she was worried. She says besides,
she doesn't think Mom completely trusted her to take care of him. He says if
mom trusts him, she'll trust anyone. She says thanks! He says she trusts their
completely sound minded and grounded daughter. She says except when it comes to
men. He asks about Jeremy, she says he's probably on his way to Seattle. She
begs her dad not to tell the cops, he says he and the Salem PD are on a need to
know basis. She says she hasn't heard from him, he said that was were he was
headed and to forget about him. Steve asks if she can do that, forget him. Steve
says Jeremy is a no good punk, she almost died because of him. Steve wants to
know if she's still in love with Jeremy? As she says she guesses she is, Max
shows up outside and hears this. He is upset, but knocks on the door and asks if
he can come in. Steve tells him to get in here. Kayla then shows up, she asks
what Stephanie is doing here and where is Pocket? Stephanie says with Grandma
Caroline, she wanted something to take her mind off of Roman. They all talk
about Roman still being missing. Steve says it gets worse, Bo called and it
seems Andre has taken EJ and Lucas hostage too. Kayla asks when this will end?
Stefano walks in and thinks they can end it together.
Stefano talks with the Bradys, he asks why all the warm faces. Kayla says he has
a hell of a lot of nerve showing his face here. Steve and Kayla ask Max to take
Stephanie home. Max asks Stefano where his brother is. Stefano doesn't know.
Max quotes the bible, saying how it says an eye for an eye. Stefano says he
always preferred turn the other cheek. They leave, Stefano says what lovely
children, and they say there is no hope for today's youth. Steve asks DiMera
what he wants. He says what they want, a peaceful solution to this. Kayla says
then tell them were Roman and Lucas are, start there. Stefano says he has
nothing to do with that, Andre took Elvis too and there is no telling what he
will do. Kayla asks what they are supposed to do about that? Stefano says he
needs their help to get his son back. Steve tells him to go to hell. Stefano
says if EJ dies, the chance to end the vendetta dies too. Steve says Bo found
the folio and knows the terms of ending the vendetta, but he says the terms are
impossible to meet. Stefano says they are possible. He suggests he Brady's
have a family meeting, discuss the terms assuming Lucas, EJ and Roman are
returned safely. He says if the terms are met, then he will diffuse Andre
permanently. Steve says so Stefano won't tell them what the terms are,
they'll have to wait for Bo. Kayla asks what if the terms aren't met?
Stephano says he won't be to blame for the terrible hell they will have to
Max takes Stephanie home. She is upset over this feud, how much can one family
take? She says she came back because of what happened with her dad, but all she
did was fight with him the whole summer. She says he was down on Jeremy the
whole time, and he was right and she wouldn't see it. Max says love can do
that. She asks who said anything about love? Max says she did at the hospital.
He says he walked in at the right time to hear her tell her dad. She doesn't
know why he puts up with her. He says she's still into Jeremy, he gets it. She
feels like she led him on. She says she felt like she was over Jeremy, but she
guesses she isn't. Stephanie tells Max how Jeremy wanted to crash here for a
few days, and her mom agreed to let him stay here if he turned himself in. Max
says but of course he ran. Stephanie says she knows she should hate him, and
he's not even the kind of guy she sees herself with. She always wanted a guy
like her dad, he is loyal to his friends and there is nothing he wouldn't do
for his mom. Max says he admires her parents a lot. Stephanie says sometimes he
reminds her of her dad. He wishes he didn't say that, as he was about to kiss
her. She tells him that she has to get Jeremy out of her system, and she knows
he won't wait around. He says because he's a player? She says it's common
knowledge. He says he's trying to change. He says he wants what she wants. She
says someone who reminds him of her dad? He says a girl who shares common
interest, someone who could go to Chez Rouge for dinner one night and hag out at
the Cheatin Heart the next. He wonders if she knows anyone like that? She
wonders how they will do this friends without benefits thing. How will they make
this work? Max says it won't be easy.
At Nick's place, Jeremy is entertaining the boys with magic tricks. They want
him to teach them, but Nick tells them it's bedtime and they need to brush
their teeth. The boys head to brush their teeth. Jeremy grabs chips and Nick
says there is no eating in the living room. Jeremy says what the hell is he
supposed to do then? Nick says and no profanity! Nick thinks Jeremy should go,
but Jeremy says give him till morning, one night won't make a difference. Nick
agrees, why he doesn't know. Then Chelsea shows up banging on the door. Jeremy
hides as she says to let her in. Nick answers the door, she asks what is taking
so long? He says the boys were brushing their teeth. She asks if he is going to
let her in? He says it's not a good time. She brought comic books for the
boys, but hhe says he'll give them to them in the morning and they'll love
him. Chelsea won't let Nick do this, she barges into the apartment and thinks
Nick is still mad at her for breaking up with him. She says she knows she was
harsh on him that day, she said a lot of things she regrets. She thinks he hates
her. He says no, he doesn't hate her, he could never hate her. She says she
knows it's not an excuse, but she was in a bad mood and she felt he was
letting China Lee take advantage of him again, so she imploded. She sees know
she was wrong and she sees he's really good with those kids. She asks for a
do-over. He asks if he is wants a second chance? They go back and forth about
what they are going to be, friends or boyfriend and girlfriend. Nick makes it
clear he has no intention of just being her friend.
Later the boys call out they want a story, so Chelsea asks let her read to them,
then they'll order a pizza and talk. Nick says not a good idea, maybe they can
have lunch tomorrow. She sees a closed door, she thinks he has a girl here. He
says he doesn't, so she asks if Nick will invite her out or should she? He
says he has two kids living with him, there is no girl here, she is only the
female here. She says so he expects her to believe he's hiding a guy? The boys
come out asking for more of Uncle Jeremy's magic tricks. Chelsea realizes
Jeremy is here. Jeremy comes out, knowing he's been busted. Chelsea says
he's harboring a fugitive. Demarquette asks what that means? Nick claims
harboring is when you go fishing in a harbor for fugitive whales. Artemis says
it means hiding someone, he asks if Uncle Jeremy did something wrong? Is he
going to jail? Chelsea says they can hope. Nick gives them the comics Chelsea
brought over for them, he tells them to take them and go to bed, which they do.
Jeremy thanks Chelsea for that, he was getting along with those kids. He asks
what he ever did to her. She says he treated her best friend like dirt, he cost
Max his garage, then there is what he did to Jett. She thinks Jeremy is taking
advantage of Nick. She doesn't understand why Nick is letting Jeremy stay
here. Jeremy eventually agrees he will go, he can't deal with this and
doesn't know how Nick ever put up with Chelsea. There is another knock at the
door, Jeremy can't believe this. He hides again. Nick answers the door, it's
the mystery man. He says his name is Umar Abud and he's here about the boys.
Nick plays clueless, he says their mom came back for them. Umar says and their
mother is the woman known as China Lee? Nick says this is a bad time, so he
tries to close the door. Umar says he knows they are here, he also knows who
Nick and Chelsea are. He says Nick was probably told these boys have a powerful
father with many enemies. He wants to talk, but Chelsea asks how do they know
he's not here to hurt them. Umar says they don't, but maybe they can
convince them to trust him. Umar explains that China Lee was hired by a Sudanese
politician with many enemies. He says he had her bring his sons here and away
from danger Chelsea asks who would hurt kids? Umar says people who want to
destroy the legacy of their father. Nick thinks China Lee put him up to this.
Umar tells Nick the boys lives are in danger and he has no idea of the gravity
of this situation.
Bo comes to the pub as Sami is trying to call Lucas on his phone. She's trying
to find out if Andre really has Lucas. Bo confirms this to Sami, that Andre is
holding Lucas and EJ hostage. Sami wants to help, but Bo says the only place she
is going is home to take care of her babies. Sami argues with Bo, but Bo says
nobody will let her help with this. Bo finally says since Sami can't seem to
sit still, she can ride with him and they'll look for them together. Sami says
she appreciates the offer, maybe she'll go to the church and light a candle.
He says maybe this will change her mind, he pulls out the folio. She asks if he
read it, does he have an answer? Bo says yes, and she won't like what is
inside it. Sami reads it and says this is impossible! She thinks it proves only
she can end this vendetta. Bo says no, it means she's not in this alone. She
says she doesn't feel good, this has given her a stomach ache. Bo leaves to
get her some toast. Andre then calls Sami asking where she is, how she must not
care about her husband at all. She says she's on her way now and not to do
this. Sami runs out. Bo shows up, he finds Sami is gone and tries to chase after
Later Bo is on the phone making calls to have people look out for Sami. Julie
and Doug show up at the pub and learn Sami is missing now. They worry what will
happen to her. Bo says Sami won't be hurt, the DiMras have something else in
mind for her. Bo has to head out and find Shawn Sr, hoping he'll tell him how
this vendetta started. Doug and Julie have the final batch of letters. Bo tells
them to stay and read them, they may be their only hope of finding out anything
if his dad won't talk.
Sami shows up to meet Andre at a warehouse. He pats her down, saying she is
late. She says her uncle Bo showed up, she had a hard time getting rid of him.
She asks where is Lucas, where is her father! He says all in good time. She says
he'll do anything he wants, just tell her where they are. Andre says that is
tempting. He never understood what EJ saw in her, but the more he looks at her
beautiful face. She says he has to be kidding her. He tells her that EJ is not a
reformed DiMera, in spite of what she thinks. She asks where they are. He talks
about how he is fascinated by her concern for Elvis, the man who shot her step
father and made several unreasonable demands of her months ago. He says she
doesn't have feelings for him does she? She says she does, it's called
hatred. Sami calls out to Lucas and EJ to answer her. Andre says she claims she
doesn't care for EJ, but she is calling out for him. She tells him to stop
playing games and tell her what he wants. He says she never had a choice months
ago, and EJ never paid for his crimes, well now she does have one. He finally
shows her EJ and Lucas, who seem to be out cold and under a sheet. He says she
can look, but she can't touch. She asks what he wants. He says they discussed
this, to save her father, one of these two must die and she has to make that
Roman is shown in his coffin, he's very weak and saying Bo, where are
you. Later it seems Roman is passed out!
September 26, 2007
A Nick's place, Nick asks Umar who the boys father is? As they
are arguing, the boys are in their room listening. Nick asks Umar if he is their
father? Umar says no, he is here to protect them. He asks for the boys, they are
in danger as is Nick as long as he has them. Nick says he doesn't have them,
but Umar knows he has them and wants the boys. Nick claims they are with a
sitter right now, and they tell him to just go knock on every door in the
building looking for them. Umar says they are making a grave mistake. Nick says
it won't be the first time. Umar then yells for the boys, who come running
out. Nick and Chelsea run to the boys' sides, they won't let them go with
Umar. Umar tries to bribe Nick, but Nick won't sell the boys. Umar punches
Nick and tries to take the boys. Jeremy runs out and attacks Umar! Jeremy holds
a gun on Umar, they demand to know who he works for and who wants those boys. A
neighbor begins banging on the door demanding to know what is going on. Jeremy
demands Umar tell them who he works for, who wants the kids. Jeremy gives him to
the count of three. Nick and Chelsea tell Jeremy to put down the gun as he
doesn't need murder added to the list of charges he's facing. The boys have
gone into the other room, Chelsea and Nick talk Jeremy into giving them the gun.
The neighbor keeps banging on the door, Nick goes to see him and tells him
he's sorry about the rough housing, they are settling down though. The
neighbor says he's calling the cops. Umar gets away and runs off. Nick later
tells the boys everything is okay, they should go look at their comics. One of
the boys gives Jeremy a big hug before heading off. Chelsea asks what he is,
some kind of avenger. Jeremy says he doesn't like people messing with kids.
Chelsea asks if he would have shot him. Jeremy says well he thought he would.
Nick returns, he thinks they should call Marlena to talk to the kids. The police
are on their way, so Jeremy says that is his cue to leave. Chelsea says she
won't turn him in, but Jeremy doesn't believe her. She says she won't. He
says if he's caught here, they'll lose the boys. They say then get lost for
awhile and come back in a while. They want him around in case Umar returns. He
agrees. He asks Nick if he gave Steph that letter. Nick says no. He says trash
it, it's best Steph not know where he is and just moves on. Jeremy leaves,
Chelsea wonders if that was really Jeremy? She also tells Nick she is very proud
of him. Nick jokes he'll take Umar down when he comes back. Chelsea says he
showed those boys how far he'll go to protect them. Nick says he's all they
have. Chelsea says he's all they need. She gives him a little kiss. He tries
to give her a real one, but she backs off. He says you can't blame a guy for
Hope, John, Marlena, Doug and Julie read the last of the letters at the pub.
Colleen had spent days in solitude trying to figure out which path was right for
her, she felt God had answered her prayers.
In the past, Santo showed up at the church to see Colleen. He asked Father
Mallory if he had seen her. Father Mallory hadn't, but she had sent a message
to him that she wanted to speak to him as well. Santo sat and waited. Colleen
showed up and put her hand on his shoulder. He asks where she's been, he's
been going mad for days. She went to the cloisters, she can't live in both
worlds any longer and knew what life she must choose. Colleen says it was always
her dream to serve the lord, but her answer to him is yes she will marry him.
Santo picked her up and spun her around.
The vets discuss how she did it, she left the church. Hope feels she made that
decision long ago really. Marlena says this was a big decision. John says if
Colleen agreed to marry him then what went wrong? Hope says Santo claims Shawn
killed her, which she doesn't believe, but he does feel guilty about what
happened. Julie says they should find out what happened by keep reading.
Colleen called her Da, Shawn and Father Mallory to church. She had to speak to
them all. Santo showed up, Pete Brady asked why the Italian was here. She asked
for a moment. She went to him and told him to go, she had to tell them this on
her own. Santo gave her a gift, a reminder of their life together. He gave her a
huge rock! Colleen said it was beautiful, but a simple band would do. He said
this was an engagement gift. She thinks it is too extravagant for her. He said
they would be married soon. She says soon as they can. She says her life would
have been peaceful as Sister Mary, but it will be complete as his wife. She
asked him to go before he started a war. Pete eventually asked what business he
had with his daughter. Santo says he was just leaving. Pete said then be quick
The vets don't understand what happened, something had to have happen to
change the course of events. Hope continues reading, Father Mallory had seen the
truth in Colleen's face and she had to say the words.
At the church, Father Mallory told her that she was not to be without her habit.
Colleen says she left it in her cell, she will not be wearing it again. She says
she chose to dedicate her life to the church when she was seven. She says Father
Mallory has been her spiritual advisor since she was seven, and taught her that
people can serve God as a laborer. She feels she can't honor God as a nun, she
has found her true vocation is as a wife and mother, and she would be leaving
the convent. Pete said this was the work of the devil, it was the Italian and
his fancy sweet talking ways. Sami says she has lost her devotion to the order,
but not her love for the church. Little Shawn is in tears, Pete tells her she is
bringing disgrace on their family.
The vets read the letters, how Colleen knew they were threatening her and
damning her with insults in order to protect her virtue and honor. However she
would not be swayed, she knew her life was a gift from God and it was her gift
to use as she pleased. Hope reads there was no end to their tirade, so she ended
it the only way she knew how.
Colleen told her Da she loved him, but she can't live the life he chose for
her. She says she loves Santo, but it doesn't mean she loves them any less.
Pete told her she was no daughter to him and no sister to Shawn. Shawn asked
Colleen not to go. Colleen told Shawn he is as sweet and dear to her as the day
he was born, and she'll never forget him. Pete told her to go and take her
lies. Father Mallory asked her not to rush this decision. Colleen says she knows
where she belongs, she belongs with the man she loves. She looked at the ring
Santo gave her, she gave it to Father Mallory to use to help those who are in
need. She says she'd never forget the lessons he taught her. She then ran off
Marlena says the girl knows how to make an exit. Julie can't believe she left
the ring. Hope asks why they didn't go through with the ceremony? John says
only one side hated Santo enough to stop the wedding. Hope says he thinks the
Brady's started it? MArlena says it doesn't matter who started it, they have
to stop it for all of them.
At the warehouse, Andre told Sami she had to choose a man. She says Lucas,
Andre says she chose door number one. He unveiled Lucas, who was tied up under a
tarp. Andre says he'd let each man beg for his life. Lucas is ungagged and
tells Sami to run, leave, Andre won't tell her where Roman is. Sami says she
can't kill anyone, she won't. Lucas tells Sami not to believe Andre, Roman
could be dead already. Andre says he's not, but he will be soon as time is not
Roman's friend. Lucas tells her to leave, leave now for him. Andre says Lucas
is wrong, Roman is alive but he'll let Roman know that Sami didn't have the
courage to save him. Sami tries to make Andre an offer, let them go and take her
as a hostage, she's way more valuable to her family and he'll get anything
he wants. Andre says this is a strange turn of events. Lucas asks to talk to his
wife alone. Andre says he's a sucker for love, okay. He walks away from them.
Lucas tells Sami not to do this, if anything happens to her then he might as
well be dead. He wants her to walk away and raise those kids, give them enough
love for both of them. Sami says she can't leave him. Andre ungags EJ and says
maybe he can convince her to shut up. EJ agrees with Lucas, to do as he says.
Sami says she can't leave and she won't kill anyone. Andre says the sooner
she does, the sooner she'll find Roman alive and well. Andre give her gun,
which she of course turns on him. He said she had one shot, make it count. Lucas
told her to shoot him. Andre says yes shoot the one man who knows where her
father is. Sami realizes she can't shoot him. Andre told her to choose, shoot
the ever loyal Lucas or the EJ, the virus who has infected her soul. EJ tells
her Lucas right, they have children and a family, nobody is depending on him. EJ
tells Sami to do it, think of everything he put her through, she can do this.
Sami raises the gun, aims at EJ, and as she fires Andre hits her from behind.
She ends up shooting Lucas in the leg, she says she's sorry. Sami then knocks
Andre out, he falls down and she keeps kicking him. EJ and Lucas say find his
knife and cut them loose. Lucas thought she was going to shoot EJ? Sami says she
was but Andre bumped her. Sami tells Lucas she's sorry. He says look at his
leg, do something. EJ runs to get a signal on his cell and call 911. Sami tries
to put a tourniquet on his leg. Lucas asks if she was really going to shoot EJ.
She says yes, but she knew if she killed him it would make things more
complicated. She says she needs him. maybe more than she needs Lucas. She says
she needs him, she doesn't love him. She says she knows he doesn't like it,
but she needs him to end the vendetta. Sami says two sides started the vendetta
and both sides have to end it. EJ returns saying the cops are on the way. Andre
gets up and then runs for it. EJ chases after him. Sami continues to explain how
her Uncle Bo got the folio, they know how to end the vendetta. EJ returns, Andre
got away. Sami asks to speak to her husband alone right now, so EJ leaves. Sami
tells Lucas they can finish this conversation at the hospital. He wants her to
stop stalling, does she love him, does she want to be with him and their family?
She says yes. He says then why is EJ getting in the middle of their marriage
again. Later Lucas is put into the ambulance. Sami says she'll be at the
hospital soon and will explain everything there. She says she's so sorry.
After Lucas is gone, Sami tells EJ that they have to see Stefano. Sami knows how
to end the vendetta, it's all in the folio. She says it is up to them to end
this and it has been since the day they were born.
Roman is still in his coffin, he's alive, but having trouble
breathing and banging on the coffin lid. Soon the sound of dirt falling into the
coffin is heard, someone opens the lid and shines a light in his face.
September 27, 2007
Steve is being released from the hospital. He tells Bo he wants to get back
to work, but Bo thinks he needs to take care of himself. Steve, still sore,
guesses he can take a day off. Lucas shows up and asks if they have seen Sami,
she was supposed to meet him here. Lucas knows they aren't telling him
something. Bo says there is something, it has to do with the folio, something
inside concerns Sami and EJ. Bo explains inside were wedding rings and a
marriage license in the folio, as well as a note from Santo. Bo says the letter
explained when Santo and Colleen's souls were united, peace would be found for
the Bradys. Lucas says there is no way this will happen. He says he doesn't
care what is in the folio, she won't leave him for EJ. Bo tells Lucas if it
will save Roman . . . Lucas says he has to stop her before it's too late.
Lucas takes off. Steve tells Bo that Sami won't marry EJ right? Bo says when
Sami has her mind made up, she'll walk through fire. Bo then gets a call, he
learns Stefano and his pop are at the cemetery. Bo has to go, he ask Steve to
wait here as Abe was supposed to meet him with evidence from the hideout.
Later Abe shows up and meets with Steve. Abe found a chauffeur's uniform,
Steve remembers Andre was wearing it when he stabbed him. Abe says it's the
same officer his man was wearing the night of the fake funeral, he drove the
hearse. They finally realize Roman must be in the coffin!
At the crime scene, Sami is questioned by an officer about what happened with
the shooting. The officer doesn't believe she shot her husband on purpose and
she says they are all praying for her dad. Later EJ tells Sami that she said she
had the secret to ending the vendetta. She shows EJ the folio, they got it back
from Andre. He asks what is inside, she says see for himself. She hands it to
him. He opens it and inside are two wedding bands. Sami says they are for Santo
and Colleen. EJ also finds a marriage license for them. EJ says he doesn't
understand. Sami says read it. He reads a letter inside, which talks about
Colleen and Santo's souls needing to be rejoined. EJ asks how this is supposed
to happen after fifty years. Sami says they look just like Santo and Colleen,
but EJ says Santo couldn't have predicted this. Sami says he couldn't have,
but Stefano sees their marriage as his father's soul having peace. Sami says
there is no other way. EJ asks what she's saying? She says she's saying
she'll marry him. He says she would do that, divorce Lucas and marry him. She
says she loves her family and would do anything for them. EJ tells her that
Stefano gave her this option before and she laughed in his face. Sami says a lot
has changed, Andre is on the loose and his family has taken her father again. If
she can spare her family this pain then . . . He reaches out, but she backs
away. She tells him nothing has changed, she'll never love him and she'll
always love Lucas. EJ asks if she thinks Lucas will understand? She says she
loves her family, if her children can grow up in peace then it is a price she
has to pay. She tells EJ this marriage won't be real, strictly business, they
won't be sharing a bed. EJ says he knows. Sami knows he's loving this, this
is what he wanted all along. Sami says just don't get too excited, he will be
trapped in a marriage to a woman who doesn't want him, to a woman who has her
own bedroom and dreams of another man. She can't imagine a hell worse than
that. EJ tells Sami as long as the union ends the vendetta then he's for it.
Sami says good, let's go tell Stefano of her decision.
Lucas shows up at this point and asks what decision is that? Sami says let her
explain. He says no need, he knows about the folio and Santo's terms. He just
hopes she's going to tell EJ and the DiMeras to shove it. She asks how he
heard? He says from Bo . . instead of his wife. He asks her to tell him that
she's not considering this. Sami says she doesn't know exactly what she's
going to do. Lucas says he understand, it's a no brainier really. Sami says
she and EJ are going to talk to Stefano and work something out. Lucas says let
him know when she comes up with a verdict. Sami tells him not to be angry. He
says he's way beyond angry, and maybe he'll see her later. Lucas then
leaves. Sami, in tears, tells EJ she'll meet him outside.
At the pub, the vets come down to the last two letters between Colleen and
Santo. They say they were so close to being married, what could have happened.
Hope begins reading the final letter from Santo, in which he talks about running
from him, how Father Mallory wouldn't let him near her.
In the past, Santo demanded Father Mallory tell him where she was. Father
Mallory said she was somewhere he couldn't hurt her. Santo said the Father
sabotaged their love by telling her about this eternal damnation.
The vets don't understand what has happened here. Hope says whatever it was
cost Colleen her life. In his letter, Santo felt alone because gossip had swept
through Galloway, nobody would help him and he knew the only person who could
help him see her again was the person who tore them apart. Marlena wonders who
Santo went to the cliffs to see Shawn, he asked where his sister is. Shawn
says nothing. Santo tells Shawn how Stefano loves to play with him, he says
he's like the brother he never had. Santo says sometimes he thinks about how
they could be a family and could go to so many wonderful places. He asks Shawn
if there is anyplace he'd like to go, maybe New York? Paris? Shawn just shakes
his head no. Santo says he'd like to see the cowboys and the Indians. Shawn
likes that idea. Santo says they could all go see the Wild West in America.
Santo wants him and his sister to see so many things. However first he needs to
get Colleen to see him again. Santo asks Shawn to talk to his sister, she'll
listen to him. Tell her that he needs to see her again. Santo gives Shawn his
gold watch if he'll help him, it's very expensive, pure gold. Santo says he
could give it to his father as a gift. Santo asks Shawn to convince Colleen to
talk to him one last time. Shawn through the watch back and told Santo to leave
his sister alone.
Hope says poor Shawn, he was a little boy, how could he be dragged into this.
Marlena says he somehow caused Colleen to run away. They wonder what he did or
said. The letter ends, they don't still have any more answers. Hope reads
Colleen's last letter to Santo. She says she was completely and utterly
destroyed, she gave up everything only to find out she sold her soul to the
devil. She says Santo hurt and betrayed her like no one else, and she thanks God
for Little Shawn for being brave enough to tell her the truth before she made
the biggest mistake of his life.
In the past, Colleen stood before Father Mallory to take her final vows. He
asked if this is what she wants. She says yes, this was her first calling and
true calling, God showed her way back. She feels failed him, but will live her
life making up for it. He asks if she still loves Mr. DiMera? Colleen does, but
those feelings will be wiped from her heart. Father Mallory says those feelings
will fade in time.
Hope continues reading the letter, Colleen told Santo she would take her final
vows and if he ever cared for her, he would stay away forever. Later everyone
worries about Shawn, where he could be. They also atill don't know how Colleen
At the cemetery, Stefano and Shawn run into one another. Shawn is saying he
wishes he had never met Stefano. Stefano says the feeling is mutual! Shawn says
they have nothing to say to each other. Stefano says just like a Brady, sweep
the past under the rug and don't face it. Shawn asks where his son is, where
is Roman. Stefano doesn't know where Roman is and he's done nothing to him.
Stefano says that is the truth. Shawn wishes Stefano was buried in his fake
grave. Stefano says sooner or later he will be. Shawn tells him to go away,
leave him alone. Stefano says when he looks back on his life, he realizes
they've known one another for half a century, now look at them. Stefano says
the irony of it, all this time he tried to destroy his family, yet the Brady's
came together and it was the DiMeras who are in ruins. Shawn asks if that is
regret in his voice? Stefano says it may not be too late, they could help each
other. Shawn won't help him. Stefano tells Shawn to listen to him, it is just
both of them here and they both know the truth, a few words is all it took to
change their families forever. He says Shawn does remember that night in the in,
when they were kids. We see a flashback of Stefano telling Shawn that his mom
was alive in Italy. Shawn says he remembers all too well. Stefano says he did
not realize he was supposed to lie, if he could have changed that moment, how
different things would be. Shawn says everything would have been different.
Stefano says they could have been raised as brothers, who knows what could have
been. Stefano says his father was never the same after Colleen's death, he
went from a loving and gentle man to a bitter and angry one. He says the part of
his soul was ripped out of him, and he doesn't remember a day that went by
when he didn't invoked the name of the Brady's in a way that terrified him. He
says when Colleen died, his father did to. He says he was left alone, he watched
his parents in a sham of a marriage, a family filled with anger and betrayal.
Shawn tells Stefano that is his excuse? He says it was Stefano's fault, he
murdered his sister. Stefano calls him a bastard and says he drove the knife
into her heart. Shawn says he spoke the truth. Stefano says his father loved her
and never would have hurt her. Stefano loses it and screams at Shawn. Bo shows
up and tells Stefano to shut the hell up and pushes him away from his dad. Bo
asks why he's going after his pop like this? Shawn says let him go, it is
ancient history. Stefano says he came here to make peace, but now he knows it is
impossible. Bo tells Shawn they should go. Stefano tells Shawn to remember he
was willing to end this.
Sami and EJ get into Stefano's limo to meet him. EJ thanks him for meeting
them. Stefano is Glad EJ is okay, he knows now that Andre's mind if far gone
and beyond his control. EJ says they both know the terms for ending the
vendetta. Sami knows she has to marry EJ. Sami tells Stefano he was obsessed
with Marlena for years, had he hoped to marry her with the rings? Stefano was
hoping if he married Marlena it would give his father peace. However he knew it
was not to be, when he saw the man his son grew into, he knew it was meant to be
them. Stefano says it is their destiny, the same as it was his to avenge his
father. Stefano tells Sami if she doesn't love his son, in time . . . Sami
says this isn't about love, it's about ending the vendetta and returning her
father. Stefano tells her there is no turning back. She understands his terms,
but understand hers. She will marry EJ, only after Roman is returned. If he
wants this marriage to last then no DiMera must hurt a Brady again. Stefano says
have Mickey Horton get the divorce papers ready. Sami then gets out of the limo
and leaves. Stefano congratulates EJ, he has manage to end a feud and secure a
future with the woman he loves. Stefano says he's won. EJ doesn't look like
he's won anything.
Lucas remembers his wedding day to Sami. He thinks there is no way she'd do
this to them, just no way. He says he won't let her.
Shawn returns to the pub. He tells the vets it's time they knew the truth
about how Colleen died, about the night he killed his sister.
Back at the cemetery, Abe and Steve are digging up the grave to get to the
coffin. Inside is not Roman, but Benjy!
September 28, 2007
Chelsea and Stephanie show up at a sorority house in pink dresses. Chelsea
hates the dress, she thinks this isn't for her. They meet Morgan, the leader
of the house. Morgan compliments Stephanie on her shoes and then invites them
in. Abe and Lexie's house has basically been transformed into the sorority
house for this episode. Chelsea feels everyone is stuck up and wants to leave,
but Stephanie begs her to stay. Morgan introduces Carmen and Cordy to Stephanie
and Chelsea. Stephanie asks for advice how to get in? They say be gorgeous like
Carmen or be smart like Cordy. Chelsea asks isn't that like being exploited?
Morgan says a sorority is only as good as its sisters, if you want in, bring
something good to the table. Chelsea later tells Stephanie how she still
doesn't like this place. She tries to show Stephanie that this place is not
what it is cracked up to be. They talk to some more sisters about how to get in.
They tell them an old family and old money will help them get in. Chelsea tells
Stephanie this place stinks, and she tells the sisters that judging people based
on their shoes, family members and money is really lame, and being in a sorority
is the same as being in a click. They say they'll Morgan know how she feels.
Cordy confronts Chelsea and lets her know that Morgan maybe superficial, but
there is more to her, if you get into a fight you'd want her on her side. She
says nobody ever crosses her. Chelsea apologizes to Stephanie, she probably
ruined her chances of getting in. Stephanie says with her family, especially her
dad, she didn't stand a chance on getting in here. She tells Chelsea she's
right, they don't belong here. Later Morgan made the announcements that she
knows all the ladies here have their hearts set on joining this sorority. They
are going to pass out pins, while wearing them they can't drink or smoke, and
they have to hold themselves up to the standards of the sorority. Chelsea asks
if they are known for anything aside from their looks and brains? Cordy explains
how they dedicate time to helping tutor the homeless and help them get an
education, as well as collecting clothes and food for the local shelters.
Chelsea can only respond Oh . . . Chelsea and Stephanie talk about
whether they want to pledge. Chelsea wonders if choosing not to pledge is a
going to turn out to be another one of her many mistakes, so she is going to
take one of those stupid pins. However Chelsea thinks she won't make it in,
but Stephanie will make it as she's a natural. They both decide to take a pin.
Later after the pledges leave, the sisters all discuss the pledges. They talk
about Chelsea, how they feel she's scared they will reject her so she's
rejecting them first. They all agree they like her, they think she will be very
loyal and definitely keep things exciting. Then they get to Stephanie, they
think she's a total stuck-up. Cordy points out she used to be a race car
driver. Morgan says yes to her, as she wants to borrow her shoes. Meanwhile,
Stephanie confronts Chelsea about the pledging, she thinks she's afraid they
will not want her, she is afraid of rejection. Stephanie says that's why she
drops people the minute things go wrong. Chelsea says that is so lame. Stephanie
says it isn't, she starts talking about how she pushed Bo and Hope away, then
she pushed Nick away. Chelsea won't talk about this. Stephanie says talking
about this is a good thing. Chelsea says she doesn't have a fear of rejection,
so Stephanie says then pledge with her. Chelsea says fine, she'll do it.
Stephanie tells Chelsea she's scared too. Chelsea says nobody rejects her, but
she says Jeremy did. Chelsea wants to tell her the truth about Jeremy, but
At the cemetery, Steve sees Benjy in the coffin and rushes to try and save him.
Abe tells Steve that they are too late. Steve wants an ambulance, but Abe says
he's gone. Steve won't accept that and is performing CPR on him. Steve
eventually accepts that Benjy is gone. He holds him and cries. He says this
little boy never hurt anyone. Abe wonders what kind of man would do this to his
own son. Steve says this is one murder Stefano won't get away with. Steve says
this is the DiMeras sick idea of payback for him screwing up their plans. Abe
says so what is he going to do, retaliate? Steve says yes. Abe says that is
where he's wrong. Abe says Benjy would not want this. Steve says Benjy would
want to live. Abe says Stefano will do time for this, but Steve doubts it. Abe
says think of his wife, daughter and that new baby, they can't live without
him if he goes vigilante. Steve says they'll get used to it. Abe says they
went through hell all those years he was missing. Steve knows, but right now, it
is all about Benjy. Steve says he told him he was safe, BEnjy let his guard down
and now he's dead. Steve goes to walk away. Abe draws his gun on him, saying
he can't let him do this. Steve says if Abe wants to stop him then he will have
to shoot him. Steve then walks off.
At the pub, Bo shows up with Shawn. He explains to everyone that pop had an
encounter with Stefano at the cemetery. Shawn tells them all how Santo lied
about his wife. Hope says she wasn't dead! Marlena says what a terrible and
evil thing to do. Shawn says what happened afterwards wasn't only Santo's
fault. Shawn explains how Colleen donated her engagement ring to the poor and
ran off to marry Santo. Shawn says he then made the mistake of his life telling
his Da the truth.
In the past, Colleen ran off and met Santo at the cliffs. Shawn followed and
spied on them. Colleen told him she gave the ring away, it wouldn't have been
right to keep it. She hopes he's not angry, he says he never could be angry.
Colleen couldn't believe she was leaving and could never return home. Santo
asks if that is what her father said? She says she has never seen him so angry,
he'll never speak to her again. Santo says sometimes when you start a new
life, you have to say goodbye to the old one. Colleen knows, and she says he's
all she has. Santo says he'll never let her down. Santo says when they were
these rings, it will be like their past and future coming together. He says she
is leaving Ireland behind and the sisterhood behind, but she takes herself with
her. Santo tells her how much he loves her, how she'll always be his Colleen.
Colleen says he has a way of making it seem like everything will work out. Santo
says it will, they will marry tomorrow and sail away. Colleen hates having to
say goodbye to Shawn. Santo says Shawn could come with them, he could grow up
with Stefano. Santo says they could be a family.
Shawn tells everyone that the thought of Santo wanting to take him and Colleen
away made him sick. Marlena says they Santo wants what he wants and doesn't
care how he got it. Shawn thought his dad could fix everything, but he was
Back in the past, Colleen told Santo they couldn't take Shawn with them. Santo
thought there would be opportunities for him in America. Colleen says her Da
lost her, she can't take his son too. Santo said okay, but when he gets used
to the idea of them getting married, they will buy a ticket to have Shawn and
her Da brought over. Colleen thinks her father will never forgive her for
turning away from the Lord's way. Santo says he will, he'll understand
he's following her own away. Colleen's Da soon showed up and revealed that
Santos wife is still alive. Colleen doesn't believe this. Shawn also reveals
it is true. Colleen asks Santo if this is true. He says nothing, she knows it
is. Colleen runs to her Da's side and cries on his shoulder.
Shawn tells everyone he could see the pain in her eyes, and he put it there.
They all say Santo is the one who hurt her, Santo lied to her and then killed
her. They ask why? Julie says love can turn to hate. Doug says when that
happens, watch out.
In the past, Colleen was devastated by the truth. She told Santo he said he
loved her. Santo says he does love her. Colleen asks how he can explain why he
said his wife was dead. She remembers him standing here, his eyes filled with
crocodile tears. She says may the Lord punish her for being such a silly fool.
She says he lied to her, how could you. Santo says sometimes there is a
different truth. She says these are just fancy words. Santo says they were meant
to be together. Colleen says if they were meant to be together then he
wouldn't be married. She says he had his fun with her. Santo says he lied, he
felt he had the right to, that they had the right to be together. Colleen says
he had the right to humiliate her right? To sin? What right did they have? Santo
says they have the right to choose their own future, the Lord gave them that
right and both their fathers took that right from them. Santo says this thing is
bigger than the two of them, they will be together. Pete took Colleen and Shawn
back to the town and church.
Colleen returned to the church and took her vows to be a nun. The vets asked
Shawn so she did become a nun? Shawn nods. They ask what happened to Santo?
Shawn says he made sure she never got to keep her vows.
In the past we see Colleen becoming a nun. She's dressed in her outfit for the
ceremony and is given her habit. Santo and Stefano arrived during the whole
ceremony. She looked back and saw him standing there. Santo turned and left the
church. Colleen pulled her habit off and ran out of the church.
Shawn explains that Colleen ran and they followed her. In the past they ended up
at the cliffs. They found her habit by the edge and figured she had jumped and
