One Step at a Time.
a noise, Nicole runs to the front door which blows open in the wind. As she
runs back inside the mansion, she finds EJ standing before the mantle. He
turns and unfurls the baby wrap in his arms. There's nothing there. She
screams. She wakes up in the clinic. It was a nightmare. She goes to see Dr.
Baker. He begins talking about her miscarriage when she cuts him off. She
gave birth to a baby that was never able to take a breath, she gasps; she
lost her miracle baby. He asks her why she is there. "I need you to give me
something that no one else can. My life depends on it," she says. She needs
to know if she can conceive again. He tells her that the chances of that are
virtually non-existent. Even if she did conceive, her scarring would not
allow her to carry the child to term.
the Kiriakis mansion, Kate tells Daniel how much she enjoyed the celebration
with her family. He has a worried look. She asks him what it's about. He has
new test results and they are going to have to start even more aggressive
treatment. The primary tumor in her lungs is shrinking, but it is also
metastasizing to the lymph nodes, blood stream and bone marrow. With tears
running down her cheeks, she asks him how much time she has left. He can't
say. When he attempts to be optimistic, she becomes depressed, sure that her
bad karma is coming back to bite her. She wants to be alone and won't
tolerate his platitudes about being brave and strong. He puts his arms
around her and tells her never to suggest that she brought this on herself.
Taking her face in his hands, he tells her that she will have hope and he
will do whatever it takes to help her beat this. She makes him promise that
she will come out of this. He takes her hand and makes the promise.
has a surprise for Chloe. She begs for it. He unveils a ring box and then
hides it, teasing her. She dances around and asks for her present. When she
opens it, she finds a key and seems rather disappointed. He explains that
it's a key to their 'dream house'. She gulps. He fills her in on all of the
details about the house and then pulls out another box. This one has a ring
in it. Lucas tells her how amazing she is and that he loves her with his
heart and soul. Getting down on one knee, he proposes. She gulps again. He
slips the ring on her finger. They giggle and kiss. His phone rings. It's
Kate. She tells him her news.
and Chloe arrive at the hospital. Daniel tells them that they are going to
kill Kate's immune system and rebuild it from scratch. She will need a bone
marrow transplant. Later, he notices Chloe's ring. She admits that she and
Lucas are engaged but asks him to keep it quiet for now. He agrees.
Meanwhile, Kate tells Lucas that she tends to worry about him the most but
there is an important way that he can help her. She needs him to prove to
her that he will be alright without her. Crying, he begs her not to talk
like that. She needs him to promise that he will be okay. They hug.
meets with Marlena at the pub. As he sits down, she tells him that his
father will be joining them. She thinks she's finally getting the old John
back. After John almost killed a man, she managed to convince him to enter
therapy. John pops up, unhappy to see that she is sharing their business
with other people. He berates her, refusing to go through with the therapy.
She stops him from walking out. He sarcastically prods her to tell everyone
else about his problems... including Tony and 'old man Stefano'. Brady is
confused so his father explains that they are both DiMeras. Brady becomes
livid and rants. His father tells him to 'suck it up and be a man'. Brady
claims that he is not even his father anymore, just some robot who thinks he
is superior to everyone else. Brady orders him to put his family first and
get his life together then storms out. John smirks. Marlena urges him again
to meet with the therapist. He gives in but tells her not to shoot off her
mouth anymore. She tells him that he saved her life and she wants to return
the favor. John's still sure this won't work. "One step at a time," she
says. After she walks out, John bumps into a woman and knocks her files on
the floor. He discovers that she has his file and demands to know where she
got it. She introduces herself as Dr. Charlotte Taylor.
wanders around the mansion looking for Nicole. The maid tells him that
Nicole left early that morning... and she was crying. She tells him that
Nicole hasn't been the same since Brady brought her back. He becomes
agitated and rushes off to see Dr. Baker. Elvis asks for the prognosis. The
doctor tells him it's complicated and pulls out the chart. Baker searches
the chart and sees that EJ is not listed as her husband or the father. He
refuses to say anything and walks out. EJ follows him and demands some
answers. The doctor refuses. EJ threatens to get an injunction. Baker
suggests he just talk to Nicole himself.
goes shopping for pregnancy clothes. The clerk straps a fake pregnancy belly
on her so she can wear it while she tries on outfits. After Nicole slips a
dress over, she announces that she'll be buying the belly as well, much to
the clerk's confusion. When she returns to the mansion, the maid offers her
some sympathy and then walks off. Nicole drifts over to the nativity scene,
picks up the baby Jesus and cries. Brady shows up at the door. She tries to
get rid of him. He just found out that he's a DiMera and needs to talk. When
he barges in, he notices her fake baby bump and asks what's going on. He
worries that she is in denial. "I'm painfully aware of what I've lost," she
says. If she thought she could conceive again, she would have the courage to
tell EJ the truth... but there is no hope. She's sure that EJ is only with
her because she was pregnant; she can't lose him on top of losing the baby.
She needs more time before she can tell him the truth. Brady agrees not to
say anything. As they embrace, EJ walks in and asks 'what the devil is going
December 2, 2008
Tell him Everything.
drops by the Cheatin' Heart to see Max. He's got the box that Trent left for
him in his will. Max still doesn't want it; Trent never gave him anything
but misery. Bo groans and hands it over anyway, telling him that he'll have
to get rid of the box himself. He invites him over for dinner. They knock
knuckles and Bo walks off. Max stares at the box.
shows up at Maggie's to see Melanie. She's surprised that he's offered her
the job. He surprises her again by telling her that she is starting today.
She's not ready. He hands her a USB stick and tells her to get familiar with
Titan's holdings by tomorrow. As they turn around, Stephanie walks in,
aghast that he actually hired Melanie. The women begin taking swipes at each
other and then Philip tells Melanie to study... he might quiz her in the
morning. Later, as Melanie sits and goes over the files, Max arrives. She
tells him that Philip gave her a job and complains about how boring it is.
He warns her not to cut any corners and then takes out the box. He's giving
it to her. She shakes her head and refuses it. He puts it back in his bag
and wishes her good luck. Before he can leave, she suggests they open it
together. He's not ready for that.
and Philip walk outside. She still doesn't understand why he hired Melanie.
He explains that he reconsidered her circumstances and had a change of
heart. She's vulnerable and told him he's a cold insensitive jerk with no
real world experience. Stephanie points out the major points in his
biography, like growing up a Kiriakis and fighting in the war, but he thinks
he's had a cakewalk compared to Melanie. If someone doesn't stop her, she
will ruin her life. He'd like to help out someone who has had a tough life.
Steph tells him he's a good guy and kisses his cheek.
the safe house, Sami sarcastically tells Rafe that she's glad he's back
after being left alone with 'broom Hilda'. She wonders why he was gone. He
explains that he was gone on a fact finding mission and discovered some
things about EJ. He suggests that she and Elvis might be able to work things
out. She claims she has no such desire... besides, if he knew how she was
deceiving him, he would never forgive her. When she flits around the room, a
medallion falls off of her. He recognizes it as one from the local convent
and guesses that she must have snuck out after he left. Annoyed, he asks her
why she went there. She missed her kids and it's almost Christmas; she
thought that praying would help, she explains. When she adds that she met a
nun, Rafe becomes even more worried. She asks him if they can go back to the
convent. He thinks that's a bad idea, but since she'll do it anyway, he
agrees. They go over to the convent. When they sit down, Sami remarks on how
familiar Rafe seems with the place. He was there a lot as a kid. There was a
nun who helped him out; he wouldn't be alive today if it wasn't for her
help. He used to be a street punk until the nun got a hold of him and made
him realize he could turn his life around. Putting up with Sami has been
hard, he admits, but he's getting used to her. They joke around, poke fun at
each other and he wishes she would be more mature. She says she'll try and
admits that he does make her feel safe.
the mansion, Nicole tells Brady that she will tell EJ the truth when she is
ready. She begs him not to say anything until she does. As they embrace, EJ
walks in and demands to know what is going on. Seeing that she is upset, he
asks if something is wrong with the baby. She downplays things. He decides
that Nicole needs time alone to feel better and asks Brady to leave. Brady
has something to say before leaving: He wants to talk about being a DiMera.
EJ asks him if he's having an identity crises. "I'm in serious denial,"
Brady says. EJ gets a call and walks out. Nicole begs Brady not to say
anything; she doesn't want to risk losing her future. He warns her that
she'll only make things worse; the DiMeras are not people to mess with.
After he leaves, EJ returns. Nicole wonders if he's being jealous about
Brady. He just wants to focus on their child. She claims that she's just
being hormonal and the doctor told her they can't be 'intimate' right now.
He tells her that he went to see her doctor too and asks for the facts.
Nervously, she asks what the doctor said. He couldn't say anything, he
admits, which is why he wants them to go and see him together right now. She
keeps his hands off her belly and then grabs her phone and makes a call
while he gets the car. "I need some information right away," she says.
EJ and Nicole arrive at the clinic, she wants to go. He refuses and asks a
nurse to announce them to the doctor. Dr. Baker comes out and EJ asks him
for all of the details about Nicole's scare. "Tell him everything," Nicole
meets Bo at the pub. They sit down and catch up about the family and how
strange things are. Bo advises him to stay away from Nicole; she's more
dangerous than ever. Brady's sure that Nicole will show her true colors soon
enough. He asks Bo what he really thinks of EJ. Bo explains that Elvis has
sent mixed signs and explains what he did to save John, but adds that he has
a lot of sins to atone for and can't be trusted. Brady is sure that Nicole
has changed and worries about her. "Hell hath no fury like a DiMera
scorned," Bo warns.
December 3, 2008
wanders around the church, remembering how sister Agnes whipped him into
shape when he was a kid. Sister Theresa comes out to talk. Sami wants a
private discussion with the nun. Rafe forbids it. Sami drags Rafe across the
room. She claims that she just wants to talk to the nun about spiritual
matters. He'll follow her into the confessional, he threatens. She begs. He
refuses. She continues to plead until he walks past her and straight to the
nun. He asks her if she knew Sister Agnes. She did. Sami mumbles while a man
walks in. Rafe spots him and instantly rushes over to him, grabbing him and
aggressively questioning him. The nun intercedes and asks him to back off.
Rafe apologizes for overreacting and decides it's time to leave. The nun
agrees. Sami and Rafe walk out. She swipes a notice with the nun's number on
it as they leave. When they get back to the safe house, she tells Rafe that
she needs to go back to the church to apologize for him. He forbids it and
orders her to stop trying to manipulate him. As he mocks her, she blows up
at him. She needs to see the nun; she tells him a story about nuns she knew
growing up and how much she needs contact with the church during the
Christmas season. He still refuses and walks into his room. "My little
reunion is going to happen whether you want it or not," she says to herself,
taking out the nun's number.
arrives at the pub looking for John. She finds Kayla instead. Kayla asks if
there's been a change in John's condition. Marlena explains that he's agreed
to see an old professor of hers. Sitting down, she complains about the way
John has been with his son. She's confident that Dr. Taylor can help him if
and Dr. Taylor meet in the park. She informs him that he had an appointment
with her father, but he has passed away and she inherited his caseload. He
brutally quizzes her about her father's death. She tells him he was a
private man and didn't publicize his funeral. "Funerals are overrated. I had
one last year," he gruffly states. When she sits down to start their
discussion, he spots Steve and walks over to him for an update. Steve's
found nothing new. John sends him away and returns to the doctor. He asks
her why she isn't asking about the 'shady looking guy with the eye patch'.
She thinks it's irrelevant. Moving on, she asks him if a lab experiment is
responsible for the changes in his character. He insists there is nothing
wrong with him. She agrees. It's not uncommon for someone who has suffered
trauma like his to experience amnesia and for their loved ones to be
resentful and pressure him to resume his past identity. He smiles. She says
that if a patient has become comfortable with who they are, everyone should
defer to that. He smiles more.
and Nicole arrive at the clinic to talk to Dr. Baker. Elvis wants to know
everything about Nicole's 'scare'. Baker leaves to get the file. EJ thanks
Nicole for giving him the chance to find some peace of mind. She cringes as
they wait. He begins kicking himself for being in Argentina while she was
having problems. Promising never to leave her again, he pulls her into his
arms. She pushes away. "I hate that lodge! I wish I never stepped foot in
that place!" she blurts out. He doesn't understand. She explains that it
ruined everything; it was supposed to be their first romantic trip but it
all went wrong. Now she can't be with him until the baby is born. He knows
how to be patient when it comes to sex. When the doctor returns, she cuts
him short and asks him to do a follow up first. Stefano calls EJ. Nicole
pressures him to go outside and take the call. As soon as he's gone, Nicole
reveals to the doctor that she hasn't told EJ the truth yet and no one else
can. While Elvis bickers with his father about business, Nicole implores the
doctor to lie to EJ until she's strong enough to tell him the truth herself.
She blames herself for everything. The doctor tells her that it's random and
the fetus wasn't viable. She doesn't want to hear any boring medical
explanations; she lost her child and may lose the man she loves. The doctor
understands, but he can't help. She explains that she had a friend do a
background check on him and discovered all of his ex-wives and various
children. He realizes she's about to blackmail him. She offers to wipe out
his debts in return for one favor. EJ returns. After a long pause, the
doctor tells him that the baby is fine. A nurse rushes in and calls the
doctor away. Nicole just wants to go home. "Don't hide the truth from me,"
EJ says to her. He knows how worried she is and doesn't want her to hide it;
what they have is a blessing. As he hugs her, back at the mansion, Stefano
sits in his office talking to a doctor from Zurich. He's going to bring him
over to check out Nicole.
talks to some 'dude' on the phone and is annoyed that there are still no
leads on the mayor's killer. He walks into the pub and finds Kayla sitting
with the baby and some wine. Marlena returns and tells them what an angel
their baby is. As she sits down, she and Steve discuss John. She suspects
that he is finally getting the help he needs. After she leaves to take a
call, he watches TV for awhile before he and Kayla begin flirting. He
suggests that they go home, 'get liquored up, light candles and put on some
Barry White'. They make out and giggle. After they walk out, John and
Charlotte walk into the pub laughing. He tells her that if his mind is
anything, it's open. Marlena pops up and pushes past John to introduce
herself to the doctor. As they shake hands, Charlotte tells her that she is
Dr. Taylor. "No, that's not possible," Marlena says.
December 4, 2008
walks in on Max while he tries to fix something behind the bar at the
Cheatin' Heart. She dourly tells him that she has really bad news about her
grandmother. Max gets her a drink. Chelsea stares; she feels numb. Max
suggests that she try to be positive but she's too burned out to be. She
feels useless since she can't even be tested as a match. This annoys him;
the only reason she can't save Kate is because she already saved her father.
She's glad to have someone who won't listen to her whine, but he doesn't
need to make her feel stupid.
park, Lucas gets off the phone. He turns to Chloe and tells her that Austin
and Will are sending their test results over and Billie's will follow soon.
He worries that there will be no bone marrow match for Kate. Chloe tells him
not to be scared. They go back to their room and make love. He apologizes;
they just got engaged and this should be a happy time. Instead, they are
keeping things secret. She says that most of her secrets have been sad ones,
but now she has a happy one inside of her. She is just happy to have a
future that she can look forward to.
Maggie's, Melanie is having a hard time concentrating on studying Philip's
files. She decides to take a break and leaves Maggie a note asking her not
to touch her computer. She goes down to the pier and is shocked to run into
Maggie. She sarcastically talks about leaping in the water. Maggie wonders
why she is so worked up. She explains that she's been studying for work.
Maggie's happy to hear it. Melanie suspects that Philip has given her a test
he knew she would fail. Maggie reminds her that he's busy worrying about
Kate right now. Mel wishes she could help. Maggie suggests that she could
have herself tested as a bone marrow match. "I could help someone else?" Mel
sits with his mother in her hospital room. She wakes up. "I must look like
hell. So nice you're here to see me," she says, ordering him to go back to
work. She tells him that she will be fighting like hell. He promises to be
there to help. Daniel comes in and tells them that everyone is sending in
their tests. She begins to scream in pain. Daniel offers her morphine but
she turns him down; she wants to feel alive while she still can. Again, she
asks her son to go; she can't stand watching him watching her in pain. She
needs to know that he will have the strength to go along with whatever she
decides to do. Philip and Daniel look more worried. She explains that she
will take every chance there is, but if she runs out of chances... She knows
that Philip is the only one who can handle what she is asking him to do.
After holding his hand, she sends him out so she can talk to Daniel alone.
She tells him that she's scared this is becoming too personal for him. "I
think that's out of your control," he says. Kate worries that this is more
about what happened to his wife. He insists this is only about Kate. "Liar,"
the corridor, Stephanie hands Philip some paperwork and asks after his
mother. He signs the papers and they share an awkward moment. She hugs him
as Melanie sticks her head around the corner. Steph tells him to take care
of himself. He's hoping for good news. She tells him that she got tested
just in case. He suggests she take the rest of the day off and enjoy it so
someone can be happy. She smiles at him and leaves. As he slumps in a chair,
Melanie approaches. He jumps at her, accusing her of treating his life like
it's a spectator sport. Mumbling, she explains she was only there to get
tested. He stops her from leaving. She tells him that she understands what
he's feeling and thumps away.
and Maggie meet up again on the pier. Melanie offers to carry Maggie's
groceries. She asks Maggie what it means when trying to do the right thing
ends up making things worse. She wasn't trying to score points with Philip,
she just wanted to help, she insists. She's sure that Philip must not want
her around but she's going to do her best to prove that he hasn't made a
mistake in hiring her. Maggie is sure that she can prove that she is up to
the challenge. "I am definitely up to the job, but I want to do mine and
Stephanie's," she says to herself.
the hospital room, Kate takes a nap. Daniel soon wakes her up by placing a
garish Christmas ornament by her bed. They try joking and he promises her
that she will have many more Christmases. A nurse walks in and announces
that the results are in. Philip returns and asks for news. When he's told
the results are in, he runs off to call Lucas and Chelsea over. Meanwhile,
Daniel goes down to the lab and looks over the results. "That wasn't what I
was looking for," he grumbles. Back upstairs, the family gathers in Kate's
room. Daniel arrives and tells them that he tested the family as well as the
hospital database and has found a match... Chloe.
the pub, Marlena is angry to discover that Charlotte has taken over her
father's caseload, including John's case, without informing her. John tells
Marlena to stay out of it. Marlena advises John against this. He smirks.
Charlotte tells Marlena how much her father admired her. She explains that
she is continuing with her father's research and believes that she can help
John. "I just have one reservation... the relationship between the two of
you," she says. She thinks that John and Marlena's boundaries are blurred
and worries that Marlena will interfere in any treatment. Marlena tells her
how reluctant John is to seek treatment. John pipes up and enthusiastically
says that he would like to continue the treatment with Charlotte. Marlena's
startled. John's phone rings and he leaves to take it. The women sit down
and admit that they are both being played against each other by John.
Although Charlotte tries to be friendly, Marlena finds it hard to
reciprocate when she's informed that the new shrink in town will be joining
the hospital staff and moving her practice in right next door to hers.
meets her parents in the park. When she accidentally spills some hot
chocolate, she gets upset. Steve wonders what's wrong. She explains what's
happened with Kate and how hard Philip is taking it. This has made her
realize how hard it would be if something like this happened to them. Philip
has been so nice to her, she wishes there was something she could do for
December 5, 2008
I Can't Keep Doing This.
the safe house, Sami bangs on the bathroom door and tells Rafe she found
them a ballet to watch. She's sure that will keep him in there for awhile.
Grabbing the paper she got from the church, she heads for the door. When she
opens it, Rafe jumps up and scares her. She's furious that he scared her and
realizes he can escape out the bathroom window. He points out that she can't
fit. She hates him for this. "It's a thin line between love and hate," he
says. That makes her angry. He takes off his shirt. She stares. He explains
that he is going out. When he dresses in a brown uniform, she complains
about how ugly his clothes are and cries because she isn't watching "It's a
Wonderful Life" and wrapping gifts. He tells her that there is a surprise
outside and apologizes for being a jerk. When he acts nice, he annoys her
even more. She needs him to be a jerk so she won't think about Christmas. He
apologizes again. There's a knock at the door. When she runs to the door,
Hilda is there with a Christmas tree. As she sings carols, Sami flips out.
As Hilda places the tree, Sami cries. Rafe offers to get rid of it. She
refuses; she can't imagine the tree sitting in an alley somewhere, all
alone. Hilda suggests that Rafe leave before he makes things worse. She sits
with Sami as Rafe heads out the door. Sami notices he's in disguise and
makes him promise to be careful with Stefano. He tells her that he is going
to do everything he can to help her. As he leaves, he asks Hilda to make
sure Sami isn't a 'basket case' when he gets back. Sami worries. Hilda
wonders why two people who can't stand each other worry so much.
the mansion, Nicole stands in her room and wonders how she can tell EJ the
truth. When she walks downstairs, Stefano greets her and offers her a drink.
She reminds him that she's pregnant. That's exactly what he wants to talk
about. "I think it's time we both put our cards on the table, don't you?" he
asks. Before he can probe, EJ walks in and tells his father to stop. Stefano
does, explaining that he becomes 'imperious' about grandchildren. He goes on
to say that he has flown over one of the world's greatest obstetricians to
examine her. She angrily refuses, telling them that no one picks her doctors
for her. Stefano thought concern for the baby would trump her 'hysterical
feminism'. She thinks his negotiating skills stink and reminds him that EJ
has no legal standing when it comes to the child. After she storms off,
Stefano follows. He assures her that this was all his idea and it's not
Elvis' fault. The maid tells him a call has come in. He leaves. She turns to
EJ and he apologizes, telling her that he and his father are just clueless
guys. Smiling, he tells her how much he admires her 'fire' and how sure he
is that she can take care of their child. He doesn't know what he would do
if he lost her or the baby. Stefano returns and announces that they have to
leave on family business. After the DiMeras leave, Nicole talks to herself,
"I can't keep doing this to you EJ, but I know that when I tell you, it's
going to kill you and us."
Nicole puts on her coat, she notices that her baby belly is moving around.
She decides to run upstairs and change clothes. When she goes up, Rafe
arrives, introducing himself to the maid as the cable guy. The maid is
confused. He tells her she can pat him down when he leaves. "It'll be the
highlight of my night," she says, walking away. He searches around the house
before walking into Nicole's room. While he digs through her desk, she walks
out of the bathroom with the belly in her hands.
at the safe house, Sami rants and worries to Hilda about everything. Hilda
tells her to sit down and takes out some photos of her children. Sami gasps,
cries and thanks her. Hilda knows what it's like to be separated from her
children and how awful it can be. She assures her that her kids won't forget
her or grow away from her. That would be Sami's worst nightmare. They bond
and stare at the tree. Hilda offers to get some lights for it. Sami wishes
she could be with the twins for the holidays. Hilda tells her not to give up
the hospital, Kate tells Chloe not to feel bad for not being able to help
her. She wonders where Daniel is, sure that he must be avoiding her since he
gave her the bad news. Lucas gives Kate a gift and she talks about how she
raised him and how domineering she used to be. She can sense that he is
keeping something from her. He confesses that he and Chloe are engaged. "I
thought it was something like that," she says, crying. Chloe walks out for a
minute and then returns. Kate tells her that she misinterpreted her
reaction. She is overwhelmed by the news. She can't micro-manage her sons'
lives anymore, so she just wants them to be happy. She thanks Chloe for
making Lucas happy. Meanwhile, Daniel is down in the lab thinking hard of a
way to help. He soon goes upstairs and announces that he has some good news.
He's found a way that Chloe can still be a donor, even if she had cancer.
His mentor, Dr. Canard, has come up with a method he could use to treat her
blood and then transplant it into Kate. Chloe is eager to start but Daniel
warns that there could be considerable risks for her. Kate refuses to let
Chloe take a risk. Chloe knows she can't force her to accept the donation of
her marrow, but Kate can't stop her from making it either. Kate tells her to
stop. Daniel insists it is only a back-up plan. Chloe wants to be Kate's
safety net. Kate asks to talk to Lucas alone. The doctor and the diva file
out. Kate wants her son to promise that he won't let Chloe go through with
this. He argues with her, insisting that they can trust Daniel with their
lives. In the hall, Chloe is adamant that she will go through with the
and EJ go down to the pier. He explains that he received a call from one of
their Argentinean associates, a smuggler of African diamonds name Senor
Fortin. He soon arrives and shows his diamonds to Stefano. "Beautiful. Is it
any wonder so many lives have been lost to get them here," he says. They
make a deal and Elvis hands over the money. Fortin pulls out a gun and
demands his diamonds back.
