Assassins and Wise Asses.
the pub, Maggie tells Bo and Hope how hard it was to tell Nick's parents
that he's been charged with murder. She weeps and prays that Mickey can get
him a light sentence. Chelsea asks Bo if Nick could plead temporary
insanity. He concedes his chances aren't looking good. Chelsea wants to
visit Nick. Bo doesn't think it's a good idea and Hope thinks Nick needs
psychiatric help. They tell her that Nick is obsessed with Melanie the way
that he was once obsessed with her. "He was my first love. Feelings like
that never go away," she says. Bo suggests that she join Kate's welcome home
celebrations instead of visiting Nick. Chelsea slouches away. Maggie leaves
to check in with Mickey. Hope sighs.
the cabin, Nicole is experiencing pains. She tries calling for help but gets
no response. She tells herself that everything will be fine and then doubles
over in pain. She searches for her cell phone but has no luck. Instead, she
finds Brady's number and calls him.
drifts over to Lucas and Chloe at the pub. She invites him to join them,
though Lucas is blatantly uncomfortable. He congratulates him on being sober
and asks if Chloe's told him their good news. They tell him about the new
house and then Chloe informs him that Kate is being released today after her
chemo treatment. Brady wishes them the best. As he stands up, Nicole calls.
She cries and tells him she's in the middle of nowhere and Elvis is in
Argentina. After she fills him in, he runs off. Chloe begins accusing Lucas
of being jealous. He laughs and admits he is. She insists that Brady is her
past and he is her future.
the hospital, Kate tells Daniel that she's dying to get out of there. "I
can't let you go. Not yet," he says. She will have to cut way back on her
work routine, he insists. Kate will try, but she isn't going to pull back
much. He warns her that her cancer is aggressive and could come back. She'll
rest when she's in Ibiza. Daniel worries she'll compromise her immune
system. Kate is defiant and tells him to back off so she can live her life.
He grabs her and seals her mouth with kisses. Then he agrees to back off,
not that he has a choice. She explains that she needs to embrace life and
that includes being with him.
and Daniel arrive at the pub. Her family gather around and welcome her back.
They eat cake. Philip sends a text to say he'll be there in an hour. Lucas
is left alone with his mother for a moment. He hopes she won't be running
back to work. She wants things to get back to normal; she can't stay home
and watch Daytime TV. At the bar, Daniel offers Chelsea his sympathies about
Nick. She's not receptive and walks away. Daniel walks outside and Chloe
follows. She tells him that Chelsea is just being a drama queen. They decide
they should get to know each other better. She promptly walks inside to
Lucas and he stares through the window at her. Meanwhile, Kate thanks
Chelsea for coming. Chelsea tells her that she is a great person and she
respects her. Kate admires her too and wants her to stop being angry; life
is too short.
arrives at the cabin and offers to take Nicole to a hospital. She wants to
sit and calm down. When she asks him to stay with her, he refuses to stay
there. As he helps her up, he notices that there is blood on the couch. She
cries. He lifts her up and they head out the door. When they get to the
hospital, they're brought to a room to wait. Brady worries and the nurse
begins running tests. Nicole dissuades him from calling EJ. The machines
begin to beep and the baby's heartbeat vanishes. "Am I losing my baby?"
Nicole cries. The doctor comes in and checks her out. He tells her the
placenta is decaying and warns that a premature birth will mean the fetus
isn't viable. She cries. The doctor leaves her and Brady alone. He tries to
calm her. She opens her purse and takes out a locket. She was going to put
the baby's picture in it. Suddenly, she begins losing consciousness, the
machines beep and the doctors run back in.
levels his gun at Marlena's assailant. She begs him not to shoot. Breaking
free from her captor, she attempts to knock the gun from John's hand. It
goes off and she falls to the floor. The assailant runs off and John helps
Marlena up. She's unharmed but he's angry that the killer has run off. She
tells him it's his fault that the killer has escaped. Bo and Hope soon
arrive to take statements. John complains that Marlena didn't let him shoot
the guy. He and Bo accuse each other of being 'wises asses'. Bo worries that
there may be multiple assassins. John tells 'Beauregard' to go back to the
station and put his feet up. They bicker until Marlena stops them. John says
that he will continue protecting the 'civilian' since the police seem
incapable. Bo and Hope leave and Marlena tells John that he won't be welcome
there, around the babies, until his behavior changes. He's annoyed that
she's ungrateful for the help he's offered. "You frighten me," she admits.
He needs help and if he doesn't get some, he can't be part of her life.
Meanwhile, Bo tells Hope that he's tired. She thinks he isn't eating and
orders him away to have a healthy meal.
the DiMera jet, Elvis wakes up Stefano to ask him about his new job. EJ
seems concerned about the moral implications of his new career. Stefano
chuckles. EJ complains about Sami and then tells his father how wonderful
Nicole is. In the interests of his child's future, he's happy that he has
this new business opportunity. Stefano brings up Sami. EJ doesn't want to
talk about her. Stefano worries if Nicole is good enough for his son. His
son tells him that Sami is his past and Nicole is his future. Stefano offers
him a drink to toast. EJ is abstaining while Nicole is pregnant. His father
is impressed that he cares so much and thanks him for the 'new beginning'
the family will have.

Training Wheels for Craziness.
shows up at the station to see Nick. He has a headache. She's sorry that
he's become someone he's not. Nick doesn't understand why she's sorry; he
just wishes that someone loved him. All that he wants is to take care of a
girl, but whenever he tries, they stop liking him. She suggests he cares too
much. He's tired and wants to go away. Melanie doesn't love him and it's
time for him to give up. Maggie arrives, she weeps and reaches out to him.
He needs her help with Melanie. She has no friends or family, he explains,
and he insists that she can't trust her brother. Nick asks Maggie to let
Melanie stay with her so someone will look out for her.
drowses on the jet when the stewardess wakes him. He smiles as he tells her
what a surprise his family will be in for thanks to his sudden return. When
he gets back to the mansion, Nicole is nowhere to be found. He calls the
cabin and is told that Nicole left with a young man.
the hospital, Nicole clings to the locket she wanted to put the baby's
picture in. As she tells Brady about her plans for the child, her machines
begin to beep and she loses consciousness. The doctor and nurse rush in and
throw him out. After stopping the labor and calming Nicole, the doctor tells
Brady to call the father. Nicole's contractions begin again. She screams for
EJ. The nurse runs out to Brady. He's been trying to contact EJ without
luck. He can hear Nicole's screams and looks in. She passes out again and
dreams of meeting her baby. Meanwhile, the doctor walks out to Brady and
informs him that the child has been lost. Brady wonders how he can tell EJ.
Nicole returns to consciousness and begins thanking the nurse for saving her
baby. Brady walks in and she becomes upset, asking him where the baby is.
"The baby didn't make it," he tells her. She breaks into tears. Later, once
she's stopped for a moment, he tells her that it was a girl. Nicole begins
to cry again, wishing that there was something she could have done. The
nurse brings her painkillers and explains that there hasn't been any
permanent damage and she shouldn't have trouble getting pregnant again.
"Miracles don't happen twice," Nicole says. As she dresses to leave, EJ
her condo, Marlena is tired of trying to get through to John. He thinks she
can't handle his macho personality. She repeats that she is incapable of
helping him. He tells her to skip the jargon so she gives him an ultimatum
– "You get help, or you are out of my life." She tells him about an
associate who is an expert on abnormal brain activity. John's condescending.
She's offended and accuses him of being dense. She's already sent the doctor
his files. Handing him the doctor's card, she repeats that she will have
nothing to do with him until he seeks treatment. He stops her from kicking
him out and they bicker. He thinks she is trying to run his life. She
refuses to stand by and watch him destroy himself. Maggie comes to the door.
Marlena tells her this isn't a good time. Maggie says it's important. John
goes into the kitchen to drink coffee and clean his gun. The women sit down
and Maggie tells her how scared she is for Nick. Marlena offers to do what
she can and suggests that Maggie get some help herself. She tells her that
Nick requested Melanie stay with her, but she has to admit that she doesn't
like her. Marlena suggests that she make it clear that she can't stay
forever. Maggie thanks her and leaves. John comes back out and, after a
little more prodding, agrees to see her doctor, but not at a hospital and
only once. "This is not speed dating," she says, warning that if he is using
this to blow the doctor off, they're finished.
at the station, Chelsea knows Nick feels bad. "If I didn't, I'd be a
sociopath," he says, before jumping to a pre-emptive defense of Melanie. He
repeats how much he loves her and how he can't change anything. He knows
that he's going to prison, but he can't stand the thought that Melanie hates
him. Chelsea suggests that she may forgive him in time. Nick doubts it. He
suggests that everyone must be wrong and maybe Melanie is the only person
who knows the real him. When he suggests that she look after Kate instead,
she becomes even more upset. The guard suggests she leave. She promises to
come back. He tells her not to. She wants a hug. He can't stand up because
his pants would fall down; they took his belt.
hotel management calls Melanie and tells her that she has an hour to leave.
She instantly gets on the net to search for a place to live and a way to
pay. Discovering a job listing at Titan, she sends an application and runs
off to the pub. Approaching a man hidden by a newspaper, she announces that
she is the answer to all of his problems. The paper is lowered. Philip is
sitting behind it. Somehow he doubts that she is the answer to his problems
but asks her to sit down anyway. Flipping through her resume, he mocks the
obvious lies it contains. She's about to stride off when he stops her and
says he hopes things get better for her. "Then give me a job," she demands.
He refuses. She rants. Before she can stomp out, Maggie walks in and grabs
her, telling her that she can stay with her, under one condition: It's only
temporary. Melanie accuses her of thinking this is all her fault. Maggie
adds another condition: They don't talk about Nick. After handing her a key,
she walks out. Chelsea comes straight in. Melanie isn't interested in
listening to her defend Nick. Melanie suggests that Nick was crazy all along
and Chelsea just used him up. "You are like the training wheels on his
craziness," Melanie says before complaining about how annoying everyone in
town is. After a few more insults, Chelsea has had enough and they begin to
throw each other around the room.

Sami is Caught in the Middle.
and Melanie are trading insults in the pub when they start to go for the
throat. They push each other around and wrestle on the floor. Melanie
viciously trashes Chelsea, but when she brings up Zack's death, it's too
much. Philip runs in and breaks them up. Chelsea storms off. Before Philip
can say anything, Melanie tells him to 'save his CEO crap' and strides off.
He walks outside. Stephanie asks him what just happened. He explains that
there was a fight. She wishes that Chelsea had pummelled Melanie. After she
hands him a file, she asks who he was interviewing. He tells her it was
Melanie. She can't imagine how she could be qualified to work at Titan.
"You'd be surprised," he says. Steph wants an explanation. She doesn't get
much of one.
inside the pub, Melanie sits at the bar and a silver haired man begins to
flirt with her. She sizes him up. He introduces himself as 'Bob' and offers
to buy her a drink. She takes a soft drink. Bob attempts to entice her to
more, but she turns him down and walks off. When she walks off, she passes
by Philip and tells him she doesn't want his 'stupid job'. When she gets
into the alley, she pulls out the wallet she stole from Bob. As she counts
the cash, Bob pops up and angrily grabs her.
the Cheatin' Heart, Max flips through Trent's book and complains to himself
about how his father ruined his life. He drops the book in the trash.
Chelsea arrives and tells him that she is the reason that Nick snapped. Her
'stupid crush' on Daniel broke Nick's heart and ruined his life. It feels
like she destroys everything she touches. He warns her not to let Melanie
warp her perception of herself. She feels that she needs to take
responsibility. Max reminds her that Nick has been on pills for months and
lost control. She thanks him for making her feel better.
returns to the safe house and Rafe lets her in. She's sneezing thanks to her
allergies. Rafe is eager to run off and leave her to look after the sleeping
Sami. He needs to do some fact checking and Hilda cringes at the sight of
Sami as he leaves them alone. Hilda drinks half a bottle of allergy medicine
and sits on the couch. She watches sports and cheers until passing out. When
she begins to snore, Sami wakes up and she's not happy to see her old
watcher again. Sami looks out the window and decides it's time to take a
goes to the nearby convent. As she kneels to pray, she begins to cry. A nun
approaches and asks if she is alright. "No, Sister... I'm not," Sami
whimpers. The nun, Sister Theresa, asks her to talk. Sami asks her if the
convent still takes children in. They do. Sami claims that her name is
Colleen and then becomes incoherent. Sister Theresa repeats that she would
like to help. She hands Sami a saint's medal and hopes she will return. "I
have a feeling I'll be back," Sami says.
tries calling Nicole. Her phone rings and she stares at it, unable to talk.
Brady offers to answer but she refuses to let him. She needs to tell EJ
what's happened in person. As she touches her belly, she wishes that she
hadn't become so attached. It breaks her heart that EJ has lost another
chance to be a father from the beginning. Brady comforts her and brings her
back to the mansion. She wants a drink. He says that won't help. She thanks
him for all of his help and then worries how she can tell EJ the news. He
offers to stay there as long as she needs him. "Thank you for rescuing me,"
she says before bursting into tears again. He tries to hold her as she
shakes. Nicole morosely drifts up the stairs. She slumps on the bed. When
the maid comes in, Nicole screams at her to get out and begins crying again.
maid tells EJ that Marlena was attacked by the mayor's assassin. Since
Marlena was looking after Johnny, EJ goes into a panic and runs off.
Meanwhile, Hope is babysitting Ciara and Johnny when Julie rushes up and
surprises her. She and Doug are fresh from touring five continents in four
months. They catch up on the problems in town. Julie has already gone to
visit Nick and is sure that Melanie drove him crazy. EJ soon arrives to get
his son. Rafe hides behind a tree and listens in. Julie makes herself scarce
while Elvis asks Hope for details about the attack. He offers his help. She
thinks there is actually something he could do. When she questions him about
his father's involvement in the mayor's killing, he's defensive and insists
that Stefano has nothing to do with any of this. Elvis walks off with his
son and Julie returns. She's sure that Stefano must be behind what's been
going on. "And, as usual, Sami is caught in the middle," Hope adds. They
worry about how Johnny will be turned into a 'detestable' DiMera. Julie
makes fun of EJ, but they both realize that even Sami can't come between he
and his son.
returns to the mansion with Johnny. The maid tells him that Nicole is
upstairs and there is something he should know. He quickly heads up to her
room. She is in tears. He asks if she's alright.

Those Two Women Destroyed Your Life!
struggles with Bob in the alley by the pub. He wants to teach her a lesson
for stealing his wallet. When he starts to feel her up, Philip runs over and
grabs him by the throat. Philip tells the guy to get lost before he gets
hurt. Bob tells him the 'bimbo' isn't worth defending and then drifts off.
Philip demands an explanation from Melanie. She thinks it's weird that he's
been following her. She hopes that this is the last time he runs to save her
and suggests he get his kicks some other way. "How about we never speak
again?" he sardonically offers. She doesn't appreciate him talking down to
her all the time. She points out that Nick was the killer, not her, and yet
everyone blames her. No one wants to help her and she's desperate, she
complains. He's not impressed by her self-pity and imagines she wants
everything handed to her. Melanie suggests that he doesn't understand
anything. She snipes at him and he mocks her until she stomps off.
returns to Maggie's. She asks Maggie if she can really stay or if she wants
her gone. Maggie says that what she wants and what she does for family are
two different things. Melanie begins complaining about her day, but Maggie
stops her and tells her she doesn't want to hear it. She hands her a note
which says that Philip has offered her the job at Titan. Neither of them can
and Daniel walk into the pub and run into Lucas and Chloe. Her son explains
that, with Victor's help, they have planned a party for her. She's touched.
As Lucas and Chloe walk off, Kate thanks Daniel for everything; she's glad
she has him in her life.
walks out to his patio to embrace Brady. He's thrilled to see him back.
Brady admits that Salem hasn't been exactly what he expected it to be.
Victor tells him about the party but suggests that Brady skip it because of
Lucas and Chloe. Brady insists that he and Chloe have moved on. He's even
smoothed things over with Nicole. Victor doesn't seem thrilled by the news.
"Those two women destroyed your life!" he shouts, listing the grief both
women have caused them. Brady encourages him to be more forgiving. Victor
doesn't need to be – he's not a recovering drug addict trying to redeem
himself. They get drinks. Chelsea arrives and Brady happily greets her
before running off to answer the door. She talks to her grandfather about
how horrible Melanie is. Kate walks out and thanks Victor for the party.
While she and Chelsea catch up, Victor tells Chloe to get out of his sight.
He sneers at her and brings out the insults until Daniel walks over and gets
between them. Chloe walks off and Victor rants about what a 'sadistic slut'
Chloe is. Daniel says that if he knew how helpful she's been with Kate, he
wouldn't say that. A call comes in and he runs off. When he gets to the
hospital, a nurse hands him some test results. After looking at them, he
asks if there was a mix up. There wasn't. He looks crushed.
the DiMera mansion, EJ and Johnny go to see Nicole. She's crying in bed and
can't talk. He leaves to tuck Johnny into bed. As she hears Elvis singing
lullabies to the boy, she cries. Brady calls to check on her. She can't talk
and hangs up as EJ walks in. He wants to know if she was just talking to the
person she met at the lodge. "I know what you did," he claims. She doesn't
understand. He tells her an employee of the lodge saw her leave with a man
and demands to know who it was. "Something happened at the lodge..." she
begins. She explains that she felt an awful twinge and asked 'some guy' in
the parking lot to drive her to the nearest clinic. He worries. She admits
their baby is not alright. After some more prompting, she claims that the
doctor treated her for a haemorrhage. She cringes when he tries to touch
her, but she tells him the baby is fine. Nicole asks for some time alone
with the baby. Kissing her forehead, he tells her how precious she and the
baby are and then walks out. "Some day, somehow, I will make this come
true," she tells herself. Downstairs, EJ calls the doctor that Nicole saw
for all of the details.
at the mansion, Chloe and Victor continue to exchange insults. She walks off
and drinks while Chelsea explains to her how 'tightly wound' her grandfather
can be. Meanwhile, Brady and Kate catch up. She can sense that something is
wrong but he brushes the concerns off. Philip arrives, apologizing for being
late. He wonders where Daniel is and they begin talking about what a miracle
worker he is. Philip apologizes to his mother for giving her a hard time
about her relationship with the doctor. Across the patio, Chloe rants about
how Victor is treating her. Lucas tells her that he loves her and that's the
only thing that counts. Daniel returns and slouches over to Kate. Philip
hands him a gift in thanks for everything. Daniel can't accept it; he
doesn't take gifts for his work, he explains. After the doctor excuses
himself, Philip feels stupid but Kate tells him it's okay. As he makes a
toast to his mother, Daniel stares off, disturbed. Seeing his expression,
Kate senses something must be wrong.
