What do you Want Princess?
a French jail cell, Max yells and complains, wishing he had a cell phone to
make call. Feeling defeated, he flops on the cot. Stephanie gets an idea.
She gets "vamped up" and calls for the guard to try and impress him with her
womanly ways. A butch female guard shows up. "What do you want princess?"
she spits at Steph. Max laughs. The guard leaves, he teases. The next guard
arrives. He's a man and he's quickly distracted by Stephanie who he
recognizes as a race car driver. He complements her on how well she handles
her curves. She flirts her way into getting her phone back and tries calling
her parents but only gets their voice mail. Max suggests that they call
Daphne for help. She doubts they should call the editor of a tabloid. She
checks her messages and discovers that Nick is in Marseilles.
stumbles into a bistro and bumps into Melanie and her friend. They push past
him and he listens to them sizing up people they can mooch off of. Thinking
quick, Nick pulls out his phone. "I want six figures no less!" he announces
loudly as he walks by their table. Overhearing this, Melanie decides she's
found her new man. Her friend suggests she wear glasses to try and impress
Nick. She pops some on and bounces over to his table, asking to see a
section on his paper. He invites her to join him, buys her some overpriced
water and tries to get to know her. She tells him that she is a student and
he tries to be mysterious. Stephanie calls him and tells him that she and
Max are in jail. She fills him in and tells him that Melanie is a con
artist. They give him the address for the jail. Melanie asks him who he was
talking to, was it his girlfriend? He says "no". She asks him for a bite to
eat. He has to run an errand first and invites her along. She slips over to
her friend and gloats about her new meal ticket before he returns and takes
in jail, Max is relieved that Nick is in France. Stephanie wants to go home
to her own bed. Max says that he might stick around for awhile. He's barely
gotten to know his sister yet. Steph says she's known plenty of selfish,
manipulative, shallow people like Melanie and there's no point in sticking
around; family doesn't mean anything to someone like her. Nick soon arrives
with Melanie. "What is this? Some sort of ambush?" she asks as she spots her
in Salem at the pub, Nicole cringes as Trent sits with her. "When my wife's
not happy, I'm not happy," he smirks. She tells him to go to hell. They
banter about the "bondage of matrimony". From what he can tell, she can
still barely look after herself. She's a helpless little girl who craves
attention from men, he says. Nicole is ready to walk away when he threatens
to expose her to Victor if she doesn't do him another favor. Disgusted, she
agrees. He informs her that there is a young woman Max has come in contact
with. She demands to know who. After taking a drink, he tells her that she's
his daughter. Nicole sneers and laughs, surprised he told her anything. He
wants to keep Melanie as far away from Max as possible. Nicole guesses that
he's afraid Max will tell her what an S.O.B. he really is. He denies this,
but refuses to explain the real reason.
the hospital, Marlena looks at John and asks him who he is. He tells her
he's John and is relieved when she tells him she remembers. She knows how
ironic it would have been if she'd forgotten who he was, but she hasn't. He
seems giddy. She seems depressed and recounts her attack but she's not sure
what happened after that. He fills her in and she realizes that Stefano must
have been behind this and given her the same drug she gave him. She
remembers his taunts and cries. John begs her not to cry and promises she
will be alright. She's sure that nothing will be alright as long as Stefano
is free. Lexi arrives. Marlena wants to go home. Lexi tests her memory and
Marlena asks to go home again. John asks the doctor if she's good to go.
Marlena asks him why he keeps pretending to be concerned. "You know that
you'd still be lying in a coma if it weren't for me!" he snaps, annoyed.
Lexi takes him out and says she doesn't need anymore aggravation. They still
don't know what the residual effects of the toxins will be and have to take
this one step at a time. He goes back to see Blondie and apologize for what
he said; whatever happens, he will protect her from Stefano. "As soon as
they let you out of here, I want you to come home with me," he says. She
turns him down.
the mansion, Lucas tells Sami that he is taking their daughter. EJ reminds
him of what the consequences of taking the child would be and threatens him
with jail. Sami wants to talk this through. Lucas doesn't want to talk to
her and claims this isn't about her at all. She says this is about "us". He
reminds her that there is no "us". EJ decides to leave and check on the
children. She tells him to make sure everything is secure. Lucas starts to
worry, sure that Stefano is on the loose and after the kids. If that's the
case, he has to keep his daughter away to keep her safe. He announces that
he's calling Mickey to end this once and for all. EJ goes upstairs and
checks that everything is secure and the baby monitors are working. He
returns and tells Sami that everything will be fine but they still snap at
and Mickey arrive at the door. They ask Lucas if he's really thought this
through. Mickey isn't sure that he can get him sole custody and leaves to
talk to Sami and EJ alone. Maggie holds Lucas back to chat. Sami tells
Mickey she doesn't understand what Lucas is up to. EJ is confident that
Lucas' case doesn't have a chance but Mickey is less sure. He and EJ argue,
but Mickey is sure that the Stefano threat could trump Lucas' problems.
Meanwhile, Lucas repeats to Maggie that things are really over between he
and Sami. She wants to know if he will be moving on with Chloe. He likes
Chloe, he admits; she has Sami's qualities minus the temper and the rage.
Still, he's not getting his hopes up. It sounds to Maggie like he's falling
for her. The only thing that matters to him right now is taking his daughter
and leaving. He strides into the main room and challenges Sami to take this

The Obsessions Ends Here
France, Melanie isn't thrilled when Nick brings her to see Max and Stephanie
in jail. She says it stinks that she left them in there, but she's not made
of Euros and can't get them out. Steph claims that she is the only reason
they are in there and tells Nick the story of the stolen bracelet. The
bickering ends and Steph suggests that Mel get in touch with Georges. He's
gone, she explains, suggesting they get Professor Nick to come up with
something. He doesn't have any money, but he asks Mel to step aside and
discuss things. Max and Steph try calling home. She has no luck getting a
hold of her parents and worries about what could be happening. He tries
calling his mother. Meanwhile, Nick wonders how someone as well connected as
Melanie is can't call in a favor for her brother. "This isn't about money is
it?" he queries.
the pub, Nicole probes Trent for the reasons why he is keeping Melanie and
Max apart. He refuses to discuss his children. She's sure she's hit a nerve.
Before she can saunter off, he grabs her and forces her to sit down. Again,
he threatens to reveal her secret to Victor. She doesn't like his threats
and offers to reveal her secret herself. He gets a call that Melanie has
maxed out another credit card. He hangs up, annoyed. Nicole says Melanie
sounds like a girl after her own heart. When she leaves to powder her nose,
he overhears Caroline talking to Max on the phone. He asks her not to tell
Trent where they are. After hanging up, Seb comes in and tells Max and Steph
that bail has been set at 15,000 Euros. Melanie laughs. Nick is angry. Max
threatens to call Trent. Melanie freaks out, worried that her father will
throw her in a convent if he discovers what she's been up to. Max tells her
to figure something out. She worries that her friends will never let her
live this down. "Neither will our father," he warns.
catches up with Chelsea at the pub. In a few months, Chelsea could be a
licensed therapist. Her grandmother is impressed and leaves to get her some
coffee. Victor and Henderson walk in and pay their regards to Chelsea before
sitting across the room. Caroline promptly walks to Victor and informs him
that he is no longer welcome there. He asks her what she is accusing him of.
She's confident that he was behind the mess that Bo is embroiled in. Victor
doesn't deny it and asks her to sit down. She angrily demands some answers
and he bluntly explains everything that's happened. "So Philip is safe and
Bo could lose everything because of you?" she summarizes. She's sure that he
manipulated both brothers through this mess and can't forgive him for it. He
guilted Bo into this predicament. When he rises to leave, she tells him he
should never have come here. "I wish Bo had never found out that you were
his father!" she adds. He insists that knowing Bo has been very important to
him but she is still furious. She's turned a blind eye to the way he
conducts his business, but this is their son and he's crossed the line. "I'm
not going to let you drag him down with you," she threatens, ordering him
the hospital, Dr. Daniel gives Philip an inspection and tells him he's
healing well. Kate arrives to drive her son home. He insists that he can get
himself home. Daniel tells him that he's lucky to have a mother like Kate.
She gets a call and walks out to wait. Daniel follows. He's confused to see
that she seems alright with everything. She confesses that she still has a
sense of dread that Chelsea will find out about them. He is sure she'll
never know and is sick of hearing about this. She tells him he's not very
good at reassuring her. "Do you want this to get out? Do you want Chelsea to
know?" he asks. They badger each other. He suggests that she resents that
he's moved on. She claims that she only loves Chelsea and doesn't want her
to go through more pain. He apologizes and swears to do whatever it takes to
protect Chelsea. That's all she wants. "Don't worry, the obsession ends
here," she promises. As she goes to leave, he reaches out to her. She bats
him back. "I care about you," he says. She cares about him too, but she has
no regrets that they ended their relationship. She worries about Philip and
the ordeal with Bo. "I know about the evidence Bo tampered with," she
admits, but what they've done has only been to protect the people they love.
He tells her what a good mother she is and puts his arms around her.
has his wound re-dressed by a nurse and walks out, bumping into Chelsea and
one of her charges in the hall. A nurse takes the child down to the activity
room and Philip tells Chelsea how impressed he is with her. She asks where
Daniel is. He's with his mother. She brings up what happened to Bo and tries
to get answers about what has been going on. He gives her the silent
treatment. She continues to probe. He refuses to get specific, but admits
that the evidence Bo got rid of was related to him. She's outraged that he's
let his brother get in trouble for this. "Sometimes people make bad
choices," he shrugs. She rants about how he should accept responsibility for
his actions. He repeats that he hasn't done anything. She compares what he's
done to what she did to Zach. She walks away and soon discovers Daniel with
his arms around Kate.
and Hope drift around outside of the pub. He promises her that he won't let
her get implicated in his scandal. She just hopes that Roman can keep a lid
on this. Roman appears. He reminds Bo that he can't talk about the
Hollingsworth case. Bo reminds him that he is his brother and asks him to
throw away the book. "You mean like you did?" Roman asks. Bo and Hope beg
him to hear them out. He refuses. Bo tells him to get off his high horse and
listen. He hands Roman the original tape and explains that the tape that was
destroyed was only a copy. Roman is shocked that they've let this fiasco go
on. Bo and Hope explain that they have only been trying to smoke out the
person who framed Philip: "The new and rather strange John Black." They ask
him to bend the rules so they'll have enough time to find out what's
happened to Hollingsworth. Roman gives them 48 hours. Hope is confident that
is all it will take. Victor walks out and asks to speak to his son alone. He
apologizes, though he knows he has no excuse. He offers to help in any way
that he can and explains that he told Caroline the truth about what
happened. Victor walks away and Hope returns. Bo tells her they need to go
after John now. Philip calls and tells his brother that the mess they are in
has gone too far. "I want you to know that I'm not going to let you take the
fall for this," he promises.

Oh my Gosh!
runs into Morgan outside of the pub. She's not thrilled to see him and doesn't
know what to say: He threatened to kill her father and yet he took a bullet for
her. "How did you do it? Did you strangle my father?" she prods, sure he is just
another Kiriakis. "You really don't know me at all do you?" he asks. "Apparently
not," she pouts, running off. He chases her down and begs her to listen. She
can't get over what he's done. He wasn't playing her, he claims. She's sure that
whatever was between them was only a fantasy. He shuffles away as she stares
off, imagining dancing with him by candle light.
and Hope sit down in the pub. She worries that Roman will put the tape into
evidence and Philip will go to jail. He's still confident that John is behind
all of this. Hope worries they could lose everything. They're anxious for Philip
to arrive. Kiriakis arrives forthwith and tells his brother that this situation
has gone far enough. This is his mess and he needs to take responsibility for
it. Bo insists that he has this under control. A woman pops up and drops a
subpoena into Philip's hands. They squirm. A moment later, Abe arrives and
reminds Bo that he only has 48 hours to sort this mess out. Bo explains that
Philip was just served; he wishes they could just find Hollingsworth and sort
joins Morgan across the room and promises they are doing everything they can to
find out what happened to her father. Her concern doesn't sit very well with
Morgan. Hope is sure that she knows that Philip is no killer and Bo would have
never done what he did if he didn't know that. As they talk, Morgan peers out
the window and spots someone. She runs out. "Daddy?" she shouts as she searches.
Hope follows her out. Morgan tells her she just saw her father. Hope runs back
into the pub to announce what's just happened. Everyone rushes out to begin the
search. Philip takes Morgan aside and tells her how much he hopes that she gets
her father back; he knows how much it would mean to her and to their future.
the hospital, Chelsea walks in on Daniel and Kate while they embrace. After an
awkward moment, the three of them discuss the situation with the lock down and
Daniel tries to make small talk. Chelsea's more curious about why the two of
them are together. She doesn't get much of an answer. Chelsea asks Daniel out
for dinner. Kate ducks out of the conversation and the couple agrees to meet up
later. He hands her the keys to his place and runs off to a meeting. She's giddy
and hops away. Kate hangs around the hospital until Daniel finds her. She
worries that Chelsea suspects something. He reminds her that what happened
between them was before he was even with Chelsea. "She can't ever know," she
goes over to Daniel's place and lights candles before taking some wine to bed.
When he comes home, he's surprised to find her in his bed rather than making
dinner. "I think what I have planned may be just as satisfying," she says,
kissing him. He asks her if she's sure. She tells him not to talk. They kiss
again. He leaves to take a shower. His phone starts to ring. When she picks it
up, she's shocked to see the text message that pops up. She leaps out of bed and
dresses. He walks out in no more than his tight jeans and asks what's wrong.
"Thank you for tonight, but I think we'd better not speak of what happened
between us again," she reads aloud, before throwing down the phone and running
out. She calls her grandmother to meet at the hospital. When Kate arrives,
Chelsea confronts her: "I know about you and Daniel." Before Kate can admit to
anything, Daniel runs in and tells Chelsea that what he and Kate had is over.
the hall, John wakes Marlena and starts apologizing for upsetting her earlier.
He repeats that he will protect her from Stefano. He wants her to come home with
him. "I can't do that," she says. He doesn't understand and even offers to start
smoking outside. It's not that; she's just not ready, she explains. John
imagines it's the trauma Stefano caused her, but that's not exactly it either.
He reaches out to her while she explains the thoughts racing in her brain: He is
not the man she married and never will be - they don't even know each other. He
wants her to slow down; he's realized, thanks to his hallucinations, just how
much he cares about her. The new John will protect her just like the old one
did. "Oh my gosh... I'm so sorry. That isn't what I want," she sadly admits.
This doesn't make any sense to him and he assumes that the fumes have done
something to her brain. She repeats that they have just met recently and have
little in common. He becomes uncomfortable and jumps back.
walks in to check on her. He's happy to see she's okay. John doesn't think she
is. "I'm thinking more clearly than I've ever thought," she insists, explaining
that she has decided who she wants to spend her future with... and it's not
John. He claims that she is confused. Listening to them, Roman actually is
confused. John accuses Marlena of giving up. She's moved on before and he wasn't
the only great love of her life. "Before you, there was Roman," she reminds him.
"You can't be serious?" John groans, sitting down. Marlena tells him how much
she loved him before John came along; she even fell in love with John believing
he was Roman. She doesn't love the man that John is now. He's sure this is all
crazy and she needs to come home with him and sleep on it. Roman doesn't think
he can protect her from Stefano while living in Stefano's mansion. They bicker
until John asks Roman outside to discuss things.
enjoying this aren't you?" John taunts his presumed rival. Roman tries to
clarify the situation but John won't listen. Roman just needs to protect Marlena
and John is not what she needs right now. "Stay away from my wife!" John
threatens. They go back to Marlena's side. John apologizes to her again and
claims that if he hurt her, it's only because she hurt him by making him compete
with a ghost. He asks her not to push him away anymore so they can work on
bringing the old him back. "That will never happen," she says, explaining that
Stefano has already destroyed the disc. "Doesn't matter anyway Blondie. I'm not
giving up," he promises. She says he's wasting his time. He wants to be there
for her now and begs her to come back to the mansion with him. She asks for time
to think about it. John leaves but she asks Roman to stay. She tells him how
confused she feels. He tells her that she is doing the right thing, but he won't
let her go home alone: He will be going with her... as her police guard, just
like when they met, he'll even sleep on her floor. A nurse interrupts to run a
blood screen. He waits outside but returns with John to say goodbye. John wants
an answer to his offer. "It's too little too late," she says. She's sorry but
she won't go back with him. "I'm sorry too," he says, kissing her head and
walking out. Roman promises her that he will keep her safe just like in the old
days. Outside, John snipes at him: "Congratulations commander. You just may have
your shot after all." After Roman walks away, John gets a call informing him
that Paul has escaped.
August 28, 2008
Boys can be a Handful
the pub, Caroline serves Steve coffee and they talk about potato soup and
Kayla. His wife is still shaken up by Stefano trying to kidnap Joe. Caroline
tells him to go home and relax. He's busy setting up a website for his new
business. He hands her a business card: Steve Johnson, Private Eye. She's
impressed. He needs to do something to keep himself from going crazy. She
laughs; this doesn't seem like the answer. The only other things he knows
how to do are play harmonica and get into trouble. She congratulates him and
he explains that he's trying to help Kayla cut back on her time at the
hospital. She's barely gotten any rest thanks to worrying about Joe.
Caroline says that's because she's a mother and that never goes away. He
wants to make sure she gets all the time she needs with Joe. They discuss
Max. He worries that Stephanie hasn't called. She's sure that everything is
France, Melanie pops by the jail to see Max. She throws him a candy bar she
stole and she even brought one for Steph, although she doesn't like her. She
tells him Nick is kind of cute and might be rich soon. He's more eager to
hear if Tiffany will be dropping charges against him. She doubts it. He
threatens to call Trent. They bicker. He accuses her of not caring about
anyone but herself. "I care about my father," she says, asking him what's
going on between them. Max downplays it. She pushes him to call their father
but Tiffany strides in before that can happen. Melanie refuses to apologize
for stealing the bracelet, but announces that Max is sorry. She explains
that he is a famous driver and would like to make this up to her over
dinner... he just needs to get out of jail first. Stephanie returns just as
Tiffany announces that she will have the charges dropped as long as he comes
out with her alone. A deal is struck and Tiffany runs off to sort things.
Max explains things to Stephanie. Tiffany returns, announcing that they are
free and escorting Max out. "They sure make a cute couple," Melanie snipes
sits in the bistro listening to accordion music when Trent calls to quiz him
on why he's bailed on a conference they were supposed to have. Nick says he
has a family problem he's dealing with. Trent offers to have some notes on
Nick's project sent to him and asks for an address. Nick fobs him off and
in Salem, Trent drifts into the pub and introduces himself to Steve. He
tells him that he is interested in hiring a P.I. to find a colleague of his:
Nick Fallon. Trent explains how worried he is that Nick has suddenly
vanished like this. He suggests that he may be in Europe, perhaps France.
Steve is willing to check into it and they set up financing. Trent brings up
Stephanie and Max. Steve says that he really doesn't like Max but isn't
allowed to say anything. Trent wonders if the couple would know where Max
is... They exchange numbers and Trent leaves. Caroline rushes over and
wonders what he wanted. He tells her that he's been hired to find Nick; this
could be the best way for him to keep his eye on Trent. Meanwhile, Trent is
on his phone outside, concerned that Max has already found Melanie. He
promises his interlocutor that he will handle this and hangs up.
at the hospital, Daniel explains to Kate that Chelsea knows they slept
together. "I'm sorry," Kate apologizes. Chelsea pushes Daniel away and
announces that she needs to think. When she turns, Theo leaps into her arms
with Lexi chasing behind him. "Boys can be a handful," Kate remarks. Chelsea
wants to take care of Theo and offers to take him over to his appointment.
The boy gets upset and Lexi decides to take him herself and leaves. "We
really need to talk," Kate says. Chelsea can't wait to hear why they had
sex. Daniel tries to explain: They didn't have a relationship, just a fling.
That explanation doesn't make her feel better. He says it was before they
were together and he knows they should have told her. They apologize.
Chelsea is insulted and doesn't want to talk about this.
Lexi corners Daniel and asks him if everything is alright. He says that he
and Chelsea just hit a bump in the road, but doesn't want to talk about it.
After some prodding, he confesses that he slept with Kate and Chelsea found
out at an inopportune moment. "I've just screwed up the best thing that's
happened to me in a long, long time," he says. Lexi is shocked. They sit
down. He goes through the details and tries to explain his mental state and
how he hooked up with Kate while he was hammered. She's sure that Chelsea
will calm down and understand. He hopes so. Later, he meets with Kate. She
wishes this had never happened. Meanwhile, Lexi bumps into Chelsea and
offers her some advice: There are always two sides to a story and she should
find out what they are. Chelsea sighs but decides to take the advice. She
goes down the hall and tells Daniel and Chelsea that she wants them to tell
her exactly what happened between them.
at the bistro in France, Stephanie rants to Nick about how much trouble
Melanie is. They glance over at Max and Tiffany. Before he can tell her
about Trent's call, Melanie interrupts. She asks Steph to make herself
scarce and then takes her seat. She thanks Nick for convincing her to do the
right thing. He suggests they get to know each other better. Stephanie steps
outside and talks to her father on her cell. He fills her in on what's
happened but she's elusive. He explains that Trent is looking for her.
Meanwhile, Tiffany cuddles up to Max. "I'm not going to jump you in front of
your girlfriend," she promises. She's just having fun with him and was
already planning to drop the charges. He tells her not worry about it. They
talk about how horrible his sister is, though he tries making excuses for
her. She tells him to do himself a favor and catch the next flight home. She
makes a pass at him. He reminds her he has a girlfriend. "I don't care," she
smiles, pulling him into a kiss. Stephanie spots them through the window and
stomps in. Tiffany tells her she's a lucky girl and skips out. Max makes
excuses but Steph isn't mad. She cleans Tiffany's lipstick off his lips and
gives him a kiss.

A Girl's Grandmother Isn't Even Safe Around You
the hospital, Lexi is taking Theo to see his therapist when John storms in
searching for Blondie and demanding to know where she has vanished to. She
asks him to keep his voice down and stop scaring her son. He barks at her to
find Blondie. She makes some calls and then informs him that she is gone.
"Unbelievable," he carefully enunciates, accusing her and her ill-trained
staff of being irresponsible. She's sick of his abuse. He repeats the threat
hanging over Marlena's head. She reminds him that Marlena works in the
hospital and could be anywhere. He grumbles and leaves to find her himself.
the mansion, EJ is on the phone with Mickey when he hears Anna dragging in
her mountain of luggage. When he arrives in the foyer, he finds his brother
grinning. "We're moving in," Tony announces. EJ is surprised but Tony says
they both have the right to live there. His brother only lives there thanks
to John's good grace and reminds Tony that they were cut out of the will.
Tony explains that the will is invalid now that Stefano is alive. EJ knows
that John has made a mess of things, but he's sure that he can exploit his
trust and find a way to push him out. Tony doubts that John is that much of
a fool and suggests that they be more assertive. Anna wishes they would drop
this. He talks about the family legacy and how it has been tarnished. She
wants to go home. He refuses to back down, vowing to restore the glory to
the DiMera name even if it kills him. Anna doesn't like this one bit and
stomps out. EJ tells his brother that she is right; he's been making inroads
with John and doesn't want him interfering. EJ admits that he's more worried
about their father than about John. Tony doubts that he's a real threat to
their cause. The doorbell rings. They turn and see Anna signing for a
delivery. EJ shows his brother the invoice: It's a big order for Stefano.
They search through the boxes and find all of Stefano's favorite things.
Tony suggests this must be a joke to unnerve them. EJ suspects he's actually
on the way. "We should be ready," Tony says.
surprises her secretary when she shows up at work. The secretary thinks she
should be at home resting after everything she's been through. Marlena can't
go home. She flashes back to being attacked and drugged and quickly covers
her lingering dread. The secretary informs her that she has a walk-in
patient, Dora, who just came in and broke down. She goes into her office and
meets with Dora. She's frail and stutters her way through the catalogue of
her problems. She feels powerless and doesn't know how to face every day.
Marlena warns her that she'll be paralysed if she doesn't stop living in
fear: She needs to take charge of her life. Only she can be responsible for
her own happiness and destiny.
barges in on the self-help session and orders Marlena to go back to bed.
Dora's terrified and runs away. The secretary offers to call security.
Marlena thinks she can take care of this herself. John rants at her and
tells her she shouldn't be anywhere without him or a bodyguard. She admits
that she's terrified but can't live her life in fear. He asks her to come
home again. "I don't need you to take care of me... I'm not even sure that I
need you in my life," she says. He's baffled, but she's not playing a game.
Almost dying made her realize that she was wasting her life living in the
past. She wants the future and she needs her own life as a single person. "I
didn't realize you were so selfish," he accuses. He doesn't want to lose
her. She says it's too late. He can't tell her that he loves her, he doesn't
know what he feels, but he didn't like to see her dying. He may not remember
their old life, but he knows how it felt to make love with her. She doesn't
have to be alone anymore, he says. She cries, throws her arms around him and
kisses him. They have sex on the couch. He leaps up and yells: "I knew I
could win you back!" She's dismayed. He mutters through a correction. EJ
interrupts with a call about what's happening at the house but John says
he's busy. He repeats that she has to come home with him.
at the mansion, Anna is upset by Tony's attitude and walks off. He follows
and assures her that his father will be staying far away. She reminds him
that his father's anger is far reaching. Tony's still livid about John
taking over. She reminds him that he has money of his own. "This is not
about money. This is about standing up... and getting that ruthless,
arrogant android out of this house!" he claims. This scares her. Tony's not
trying to be diabolical; he just wants what's best for the family. A major
house cleaning is in order and John should be the first to go. Stefano
suddenly calls and asks his son to get his room ready: He's coming home.
Meanwhile, John and Marlena dress and go to the mansion. He insists that
this hasn't been a mistake and kisses her. She makes it clear that this is
only one night. When he opens the door, they're shocked to see all of
Stefano's boxes in the foyer. He pockets some of the cigars and realizes
that Stefano must be coming back. EJ pops up to tell him that Tony has moved
in and his father won't be far behind. "Over my dead body," John grumbles.
paces at the pub with Kate. They're waiting for Chelsea so they can sort
things out. He feels like a dog for keeping the truth from Chelsea; now he
wants to make things right. Chelsea arrives and takes a seat. Kate
apologizes and so does Daniel. She understands that they didn't want to hurt
her but she doesn't know how to get past the fact that her boyfriend slept
with her grandmother. Kate repeats that none of this was planned. Daniel
repeats his story about his dead wife. Kate then tells the story of the
night they hooked up again. Daniel is tired of repeating excuses. Chelsea
reminds him that both he and Kate knew how she felt about him and he knew
how he felt about her. Neither Kate nor Daniel wanted him to get involved
with her because they feared she would be hurt. "What do you know? You were
both right," Chelsea shrugs. But why didn't they tell her before? He says it
would have been awkward. Kate gets a call and leaves. Daniel says there's no
reason why they can't put this behind them and move on. "I don't want to
lose you," he implores, taking her hand. She pulls away and accuses him of
being a player; even a girl's grandmother isn't safe around him. Kate
returns and they repeat how sorry they are. Chelsea can't get over it and
walks out. She heads to the hospital and informs Lexi that she and Daniel
are finished. Chelsea plays with Theo and cries.
