1st Week of April 2008 Daily Summaries
March 31, 2008
EJ rushes into Sami's
apartment, lifts her up and twirls her around. She tells him to stop barging
into her apartment. "Our apartment," he snips, explaining that he has
"marvelous" news. Smiling, he tells her Immigration is actually looking into his
case, which suggests they may not be in a rush to kick him out after all. Now,
they just need to convince Immigration officials they are married in more than
name only. She reminds him that their vows were lies. He tells her to do what he
knows she does better than anyone else: "I want you to lie through your teeth."
He gets out Johnny and plays with him. She tells him to beg for her help. "I'm
not afraid to sacrifice my pride to spend time with my son," he says solemnly,
before insisting that lying to the government can be fun. She offers to stomach
it for the sake of her son. He tells her that she needs to love him. She tells
him to be realistic.
EJ and Sami get dressed up and
go over to Chez Rouge to meet with the Immigration agent. Maggie shows them over
to the waiting agent where they begin sharing several awkward pauses. EJ says
they're planning a trip to keep the passion in their relationship. He starts to
detail their sex life while the agent rolls his eyes. Sami calls the waiter over
to complain about EJ's overcooked fish and sends it back. She starts to eat and
they start to bicker. He tells the agent that they spend all their time looking
after the kids or making love incessantly. "When's he's able to perform," she
snipes. He laughs uncomfortably. The agent asks them why they have separate
addresses. EJ explains that he hasn't eased into giving up his apartment yet.
The agent asks him why he hasn't gotten a job. Sami says they'll have to cut
into their love making time so he can find one. Maggie interrupts to say that EJ
has a call. He leaves the table, kissing Sami on the way and making her
uncomfortable. Maggie tells EJ that she doesn't like the way the agent is
looking at them and called him away because she has an idea.
Nick arrives at the mansion to
find Chelsea getting some therapy from her nurse. He has some news for her but
the nurse warns him not to get her excited. He refuses to tell her the news
until Stephanie and Max arrive. Morgan arrives first, bearing some flowers to
check on her sorority sister. Morgan wants to stay and hear the big news and
bugs Nick for a hint. Steph and Max wander in and Nick smiles before excitedly
telling them that he's received his grant. They congratulate him and Morgan
starts to hug him, much to Chelsea's chagrin. Steph notices that Max doesn't
seem excited but he insists that he is fine before running off. Nick starts
explaining his plans and everyone is soon bored except for Morgan. They all
admit that they have no idea what he's talking about.
Ava is excited about getting
back with Patch. Hope is just excited this will soon be over. Hope points out
Steve may not want her back, particularly after she sabotaged a plane and killed
three people. Ava insists that none of that was her fault and the plane never
should have taken off. Patch should have gotten off of it and found her wearing
his favorite hat. Then they could have gone off together to chat about the good
old days and remember their love. Things went wrong though. Patch was angry when
he got off the plane so she hid and he leapt back on. She knows saying sorry
won't bring back the dead. Hope graphically tells her the story of the ordeal on
the plane and Shawn's death. All of this is enough to make Ava cry. She asks for
Shawn's last name and then calls Angelo in to look after Hope while she goes
out. Angelo whines a bit before Ava walks out and Hope starts to anxiously play
with her hair until she's left alone. She searches around the room before
grabbing a bust and trying to break through the balcony doors. When she gets
them open, an alarm goes off. Angelo runs in and grabs her, throwing her down
and threatening he will have fun with her.
Max goes to his father's
gravesite and pours him a beer. He tells him that Nick's a smart guy but he
needs some guidance because he makes mistakes. He confesses that he isn't happy
running the pub, but he's cool with doing it and looking after mom...still, he
needs to find something else so he can take care of Stephanie too. Ava
interrupts his moment with his father. "Who are you?" he asks. "I'm nobody," she
says, explaining that she heard Shawn was an amazing man and she just wanted to
pay her respects. She kneels down and puts some flowers by the stone before
asking Max to tell her about him. He sadly describes his father in glowing terms
and speaks of how full of love he was. When Ava reaches out her hand to him, he
backs away. After he leaves, she drops down and starts to cry, "I'm so sorry."
Later, she climbs into her limo and calls her father to set something up. She
flashes back to her bedroom escapades with Patch. The limo stops and she stares,
waiting for someone to come out.
Max returns to his friends at
the mansion. The girls keep probing Nick for information about his invention.
Nick starts to explain again while Max keeps his distance. Morgan strolls over
to him and asks him why he was sabotaging Nick's project. She can't understand
why he was trying to ruin his friend's plans, but Max remains elusive during her
questioning. Stephanie takes him away and Morgan grins.
April 1, 2008
Things Have Changed Baby
EJ gets a
job from Mickey, Ava takes Steve to see "Kayla", Bo tries to get out of the
twists in pain in his hospital bed. He begins to pull off his medical supports
and climb out of bed, instantly collapsing. As his machines begin to ring, Lexi
and a nurse run in to help. "She is in trouble...Hope..." he gasps. Lexi asks
him what he's talking about. He says it was just a dream. Kayla arrives and
announces she will be looking after him. She asks him if he's seen Steve. He's
not helpful. They gang up and ask him how he's feeling as they try to figure out
what he was up to. Again, he's not helpful. Lexi is called away and leaves,
commanding Bo not to get up. Once she's gone, Kayla asks again: "What's going on
with you and Steve?" Bo plays dumb, but she is sure he's keeping something from
her. As they bicker, she gets a pain and they call Lexi back in. She stops
Kayla's cramping and then leaves to page her doctor. Once Bo is left alone, he
starts climb out of bed again, vowing to save "Fancy Face".
her limo, Ava anxiously waits for Patch. She's about to give up when he sticks
his head through the door and tumbles in. "Good to see you again," she says. He
immediately asks if his wife is alright. She says it would be good if he forgot
about her, but she's fine. It's clear Ava's not about to let him see Hope. She
reminds him they were once supposed to see a preacher together. "Things have
changed baby," Steve says. No one calls her "baby" anymore, she explains; they
call her by another "b" word instead. She doesn't want to talk about that though
and she's not crazy...she just has issues. He asks again to be taken to his
wife. They drive along and he wonders how she found him and she answers by
explaining how much she wants to make love to him, even if he seems whiny and
negative now. "I can't remember you being so stupid," she says, reminding him
she has all the power and it's up to her if he ever sees his wife again. They go
over the plane crash again and she repeats that "Ava Baby" would never hurt
someone on purpose. He points out she just threatened to kill his wife and
unborn child. "That's different," she protests. He tells her she should be upset
about what happened on the plane, but she doesn't want to hear about it. Steve
proceeds to tell her all about Papa Brady's death and Ava explodes, screaming
that she hates him and he's causing her brain to split in two. She tells him
that Shawn's death was his fault and none of this would have happened if he
hadn't abandoned her. "I don't want to hurt anyone, but I will if I have to,"
she threatens. She just wants wants to go back in time and get back the life he
promised her. "I can be that man again...if you still want me to be," he offers.
She smiles and cozies up to him, offering to give him plenty of children. Then
she begins kissing him and rests her head on his shoulder.
Hope continues to search for a way out. Digging under the mattress, she
discovers a scrapbook. "What happened to you Ava?" she asks as she leafs through
it and thinks over all of the things her captor has told her.
Steve and Ava arrive. Hope says she's hardly been treated like a princess. Ava
warns her not to push her and explains that she still doesn't trust either of
them. She doesn't like the "boring, whipped" man that "Kayla" has turned Patch
into. She pulls Steve away from Hope and asks her if she has any idea how happy
she and Patch were. She's sure she knows; she can see that Hope's been going
through her stuff.
Rouge, the Immigration agent continues to ask Sami if she loves EJ. She becomes
indignant and repeats that she does. Meanwhile, EJ tells Maggie how much he
loves her plan and gives her a hug and a kiss. He returns to the table and he
and Sami pass barbed jokes back and forth before he announces that Mickey Horton
has offered him a partnership in his practice. "Wouldn't you have to be an
attorney to do that?" the agent asks. EJ explains he isn't good at arguing just
because he's married, he's actually a certified, Oxford-trained lawyer and, now,
a gainfully employed one. The agent is less than impressed by Mr. Wells' work
ethic though. EJ defends himself and the agent asks them again why they don't
live together. They insist they do. He tells them he'd like to see their
extended families more involved in their lives. The "couple" kick and snipe at
each other as they promise to
accomplish this. He limps away after she stomps on his foot.
agent leaves and EJ returns to tell Sami he wishes she'd be happy now that he's
got a job.
Sami why her nose is so out of joint. Sami asks her why she's on EJ's side. "I'm
on Gianni's side," Maggie says. They both miss Lucas, but EJ really cares about
his son. Sami's shocked when Mickey pops up and announces he really wants to
hire EJ. Sami doesn't think he can even practice law in America. EJ returns and
explains that he can, thanking Mickey and shaking his hand. "He better not be
anything like his father," Mickey says, asking Sami what she has to say about
him. She says that he's not a typical DiMera. Mickey's happy to hear that and
tells EJ that he will be in a probationary position, doing lots of hard work for
very little money. After he strolls off, Maggie tells EJ not to make her out a
liar. He thanks her again and she walks away. EJ turns to Sami and thanks her
for her help. They wonder what they can do about his family now... it's not like
John will be running over to see his nephew!
thanks Mickey for giving EJ a chance. He admits that he has a hard time saying
"No" to her, but he also still has problems with EJ. He returns to Sami and EJ's
table while they bicker. EJ thanks him again and they explain their problems to
him and quickly start bickering again. Mickey leaves the "love birds" alone and
EJ accuses her of lacking "decorum". They keep arguing while he downs a martini.
She gets up, announcing she has a plan.
April 2, 2008
All Kinds of Weird
DiMera mansion, Rolf is using tongue twisters to try to lose his accent.
Frustrated, he starts to grumble that the exercises are causing him brain
damage. He begs John to stop forcing him to do this, but John reminds him his
accent gets on his nerves. John wants a valet like Victor's: "A better butler,
not a bitter butler." Rolf changes topic and informs him that a new shipment for
the Kiriakis' is coming in. John takes a drink and grins, saying that's one more
shipment that the Kiriakis' won't be getting. Rolf shakes his head, unable to
understand why John is so intent on making enemies.
doorbell rings and John send his bitter butler off to prove he can be a better
butler. Rolf grimaces when Marlena walks through the door. She strolls in before
Rolf can even announce her. John asks "Blondie" what she's doing there. She asks
Rolf to give them some privacy so John orders him to, "go butle something." She
still can't understand why he keeps the mad scientist around. "He spent a lot of
time torturing me, so now I'm torturing him," John explains. She says that Sami
invited her over there. "I've killed people for less," he jokes. The doorbell
rings and Sami and EJ rush in to say that Marlena and John are the only people
who can help them. Before they can explain, Marlena asks Rolf to leave again.
John hands him his tongue twister book and sends him off. Sami explains that
Immigration wants to deport EJ. "The problem is?" John asks. Sami explains that
the twins need a father. John doubts it; he never knew his parents, "And look
how I turned out." Sami and EJ list their problems to Marlena, but it just
sounds like they need money to John. He offers them some cash if it will keep
them away from him. Sami insists that it's more complicated than money. They
have to prove they have a real marriage and they need to spend more time with
their extended families...and they have to live together. "Mom, we were sort of
hoping we could live with you," Sami says. John raises an eyebrow and seems to
stifle a laugh. Marlena is mildly shocked and says that her place isn't big
enough...but she could move if it would help. The women wonder if there is
another option and then look over at John. Marlena says it's not a good time for
them to move in with her and suggests they move in with John instead. Sami
thinks that's crazy, but Marlena insist it's only "unconventional". At least
they would have a place to stay and, what's better, it would be with their
extended family. Maybe the twins could help John regain his "lost humanity," she
suggests. Sami repeats that this is crazy and "all kinds of weird". Rolf
interrupts to offer them some schnapps. After he gingerly strolls off, Marlena
explains that John is much better than he was and they need to be sympathetic to
him. Sami thinks it over and asks her mother to move in too. Marlena's eyes
widen and she looks over at John as he puffs on a cigar. "That man is not my
husband," she says, but maybe she
can find a way to bring her hubby back. Then she laughs and refuses to move into
the "parallel universe," before suddenly changing her mind and agreeing to talk
to John about it.
window, John offers EJ a cigar. EJ turns it down; he finds them nauseating. John
offers him some pity on losing everything thanks to Stefano. EJ insists that
he's a changed man and doesn't want anything of his father's. John is a changed
man too; he's kind of upset about not having much of a memory though...he never
knows if people are lying to him or not. He asks EJ if he and Sami are moving in
and admits that he doesn't want Stefano's kid around. Turning to Rolf, he asks
him if he can handle looking after EJ, Sami and the babies. Rolf would sooner
choke on a schnitzel. That's how John feels too, but he'd like to keep an eye on
EJ, just in case he attempts a DiMera coup. They eat some of Rolf's cheese puffs
until Sami and Marlena walk over to discuss their "solution". He blows his cigar
smoke in her face and tells her her plan stinks. She says she will be moving in
too. Rolf begins to protest, saying that Marlena is dangerous and crazy. That
seems to make John excited.
the Kiriakis mansion, Philip and Chloe join Victor in the dining room. Chelsea
comes in and Victor says that having all of them there makes his heart feel
good. The doorbell rings and Dr. Daniel drifts in, shaking everyone's hands.
Chloe smiles flirtatiously and they sit down to dinner. They begin to down some
champagne as Victor toasts to his son, his granddaughter and Daniel. Chloe is
left to toast to herself. The doorbell rings and Kate stomps in to check on
Chelsea. Victor asks her to join them and Chloe rolls her eyes while everyone
guilts Kate into staying. Victor repeats his toast and then grimaces at Chloe,
who is trying to get drunk and get the evening over with. The guests begin
toasting their host as the meal is served and Daniel talks about a death-defying
case he had in Italy. Kate toasts to Daniel, their "knight in shining armor." He
proceeds to tell them about surfing in France and all of the casinos he
frequented. After he comments Kate on her body, Victor cuts the flirting short
to announce dessert and everyone talks about how wonderful it is to have the
whole family together. Chloe makes a sarcastic remark about it being just like
Little House on the Prairie and Victor grits his teeth. Some decadent
chocolate cake is brought in. Everyone enjoys it and Victor continues to snipe
at Chloe. Daniel tells Chloe that he saw her perform in Vienna and passes her
some compliments. "You were the talk of Vienna," he offers. "They haven't
stopped talking yet," Victor growls. Chloe drops her napkin and walks away from
on the stairs and flashes back to her rejection at a recent audition. She
wonders if she will ever live down the scandal. Philip interrupts her
ruminations to tell her not to let his father get to her. She's tired of
people's suspicions and of having her name dragged through the mud. "You're
gonna sing again. Now what can I do to make things better?" he asks. She wants
an apology from Victor. He half-laughs.
at the table, Victor apologizes for his outbursts, but he can't stand Chloe.
Kate advises him to stop overreacting or he'll just drive Chloe into Philip's
arms. Daniel sits on the sidelines, terribly confused by everything. Chelsea
tries explaining the situation to him. He's still confused. Kate and Victor
start to talk about her time as a Kiriakis until Philip and Chloe return. Victor
tries apologizing, but it comes out like an insult. Before Chloe can blow her
top, Kate changes the subject by flirting with Daniel a little until the
doorbell rings again. Victor slumps in his chair, angry that he can't get any
peace and quiet. Chloe and Victor start levelling insults and shouting at each
other until Nicole arrives, toting her little dog and filling the room with

I Always Enjoyed Playing With Fire.
goes to visit Max down at the docks where he is putting in his community service
hours. She hands him a cup of hot chocolate and starts to massage his exhausted
shoulders. She tells him, sooner or later, he's going to have to deal with
what's really bothering him. They start talking about Chelsea instead and Max
suggests Stephanie move in with her friend. She'd rather be with Max, she says.
He's sceptical, but she insists that, even if she was out with Morgan, she would
just be thinking of him. His supervisor interrupts their relationship chat to
tell him to get back to work. Stephanie thinks he's rude but Max reminds her
he's "just a grunt" down there. He worries that she'll miss out on something by
being with him. "I don't want you to come down here anymore," he says. He likes
having her down there, he quickly explains, but this place isn't safe. "I would
do anything for you. Now, can you do something for me?" he entreaties, kissing
her hands. She doesn't get it, but his wish is her command. She'll still follow
him around the pub though. "You're my hero," she says, kissing him until her
cell phone interrupts--Kayla has just been admitted to the hospital!
her mansion, Ava starts pressuring Steve to kiss his "wife". She knows how much
he likes to have an audience. Hope takes a pass on listening to Ava's naughty
anecdotes, so Ava continues pressuring them to kiss. She stands back and watches
Patch and Hope embrace before stopping them in disgust. She's not impressed by
their passion. Hope says being a hostage just doesn't turn her on. Ava rolls her
eyes and Patch asks what happens next. "I'm the one you want. You can let Kayla
go," he points out, but that's not good enough for Ava. She knows Kayla has his
"bun in her oven" and won't easily forget him. Hope tries to rationalize her
release, but her logic isn't working for Ava. Patch starts calling her "babe"
and she smiles, but only for a moment before accusing them of trying to trap
her. She becomes manic and reminds Steve that he broke her heart. Hope says that
she can't have a relationship with Steve if she doesn't trust him. "Trust is
something you earn," Ava says. Suddenly, she starts to get a throbbing headache
and everything begins to echo. Pacing and flailing around, she starts to pop
some pills and explains she has mysterious migraines. He offers to fix things
and she demands he prove it by having dinner with her so they can talk about
"us". When he brings up Kayla again, she touches Hope's belly and realizes that
she's pretty flat for a pregnant woman. "When are you due?" she queries. Hope
says that it's early and she's just not showing yet. Ava talks of how she wanted
children with Patch and wonders why Hope hasn't been having morning sickness.
She's sceptical and thinks they should have a doctor check Hope out. Hope
insists she only trusts her own doctor. Ava shrugs and finds it odd Hope doesn't
seem angrier that she's taking Patch away. Hope says that she is angry, but
she's hiding her emotions. Ava calls Angelo in and tells him to take Hope away
so she can have dinner with Patch alone. After he takes her away, Hope asks
Angelo what happened to Ava. He explains that it's Patch's fault that Ava is the
way she is. If it was up to him, they'd kill him right now. Meanwhile, Ava walks
over to Patch and kisses him.
the Kiriakis mansion, Nicole hands Henderson a bottle and asks him to get her a
new one. Victor tells her to get out, but she isn't going anywhere. She sends
her dog, Pookie, away with Henderson into the kitchen while she flops down at
the table. She starts prodding the guests on their plastic surgery secrets until
Kate finally asks her what she's doing there. "I'm back. I couldn't stay away,"
she says with perky malice. Victor threatens to have her thrown out. She reminds
him they are married and he reminds her she tried to kill him and Colin ended up
dead. He warns her she's playing with fire. "I always enjoyed playing with
fire," she smiles, shaking Dr. Daniel's hand. As she starts to drift around the
room, Chelsea starts to fill the doctor in on what's been going on. Kate
suggests that Victor have Nicole arrested, "or something..." He reminds Nicole
again that she tried to kill him. She's glad she didn't because then she
wouldn't have a place to stay; she just wants somewhere to rest her weary head.
"What have you done now?" he asks. As Victor and Nicole walk off to argue over
arrangements, everyone wonders if things could get any worse. Daniel doesn't
seem to understand; in fact, he thinks Nicole is "pretty hot." Kate warns him
that Nicole isn't just bad, "she's worse."
This is all
a nightmare for Chloe. She'll never forgive Nicole for the cruel things she did
to keep her from Brady. Philip doesn't think Victor is going to have much choice
and will have to let her move in. Maybe he and Chloe will both have to find a
new place to live. Meanwhile, Daniel continues admiring "firecracker" Nicole
while Kate explains how she tried to kill Victor and used to be married to
Lucas. While Kate admits she's done some nasty things, she's always done them
for her family, while Nicole only does things for herself. Chelsea is looking
tired, so Kate sends her to bed.
takes Chelsea upstairs and comments that Daniel always puts a twinkle in her
granddaughter's eye. Chelsea admits it, but says he's just a distraction from
worrying about her dad. They start laughing about the return of Nicole and Kate
blames Victor for what's happened. "That's what happened when you don't think
with your head," she explains. Meanwhile, Victor accuses Nicole of being broke
and desperate. She reminds him that her husband, namely him, is a rich man and
she thinks she can get a sweet settlement. He has a few nasty words for her but,
before she can slap him, he grabs her hand and tells her he doesn't have to pay
her liquor bills. She vows she won't be going anywhere and requests Henderson
unpack her bags. He warns her not to do that just yet and shakes his head as he
watches her saunter upstairs.
table, Philip gives Daniel more details of Nicole's nefarious past. "From
what I can see, things are going to get interesting," he comments. As he rises
to go, Philip thanks him for saving Bo's life. The doctor goes upstairs to check
on Chelsea. Kate leaves them alone and Chelsea asks him if he is going to
officially "poke" her. He says it's only semi-official and asks her to come to
the hospital for a checkup tomorrow. After saying goodnight, he bows out and she
sits down on her bed with an irrepressible smile on her lips. Meanwhile, Kate
goes downstairs to the dining room to see her son when Nicole and Victor walk
in. He informs everyone that Nicole will be staying until his lawyers can figure
out a way to get rid of her. Kate decides it's time to leave. After Nicole
offers a few insults, Victor tells her that she can't insult his guests. She
reminds him that she is not a guest: They are at war!
April 4, 2008
walks in on a grumpy John. The children kept him up all night. Marlena finds
this amusing, but he's just annoyed. She leaves for work with a smile and he
continues his paperwork. Hearing someone walk in the door, he expects Marlena
and asks, "Did you forget to kiss me goodbye?" It's not Marlena though, it's
Philip. "I'd prefer you bought me dinner first," he quips, advising John that he
might need a stiff drink after hearing what he has to say. John asks him not to
throw a tantrum; he's been listening to baby's scream all night. Philip issues
some threats about the cargo John is moving around and flashes him the
newspaper. "You gotta be kidding me?" John says as he looks it over. Paul
Hollingsworth has been indicted for taking bribes and abusing his position as a
customs official. Philip suggests this could turn into a huge scandal and
wonders if Paul will name names. John is defiant, but Philip offers to work out
a deal with him, one that would suit them both. John won't make any deals. He's
going to fight for the docks until the end. "Don't say I never gave you the
chance to end this peacefully," Philip says. "Does this mean we can't be
friends?" John grimaces. Philip already has friends, namely Paul's replacement,
and they've already become close. John concedes Philip has the upper hand, but,
"the game is still young." Philip smugly walks out and John laughs to himself.
Looking up at the portrait of Stefano on the wall, he says, "If Philip and
Victor thought that you were ruthless, just wait until I get through with them."
"Wait until John reads this,"
Victor laughs as he reads the newspaper at his breakfast table. Nicole
interrupts to ruin his morning mirth. He still wants to get rid of the "gold
digger" but she explains that she's well-rested and ready to redecorate the
place. When Chloe comes in, Victor grouches, "Now my day's complete." The two
women start to bicker and Victor
out while Chloe eats the last of the breakfast. Sitting at the table, Nicole
asks Chloe if she killed Brady herself or hired someone to do the deed. Chloe
thinks she's just jealous because she couldn't compete. "Maybe he killed himself
'cause he couldn't stand living with you," Nicole sneers, taunting her until
Chloe tells her to, "shut her stupid mouth." She accuses Nicole of never earning
a respectable living and of just being a sponging porn chick and, what's even
worse, she botched her reconstruction surgery. "Looks like your face could still
use some work!" Nicole barks before they start throwing breakfast rolls at each
other. As they run around the table, Nicole throws a cup of coffee at Chloe but,
instead, hits Philip as he walks through the door.
Victor arrives at Marlena's
office to start their session. He instantly tells her that his life is a
complete disaster and he fears for his sanity. Brady's missing and Chloe is
after Philip. He doesn't want his son to fight the same fights he did. He lost
part of his soul along the way and doesn't want the same for Philip. If that
wasn't bad enough, Nicole is back. "That must be a bit awkward," Marlena
guesses. Victor reminds her that Nicole tried to have him killed and now she is
living with him. At least she and Chloe are mortal enemies and might kill each
other. He has other problems, but they're John-related so he's not sure he
should say anything to her.
goes to the hospital to rag out her mother for getting out of bed and
endangering the baby. Kayla insists she doesn't need a babysitter and demands to
know where Steve has gone. Stephanie tries to keep the secret, but she quickly
breaks down under Kayla's pressure tactics. Steve is trying to protect her from
his crazy ex-girlfriend, she explains. Stephanie has never seen her father so
scared. Kayla hates being lied to and is upset the two most important people in
her life have been hiding things from her. She doesn't think she needs
protection and vows to hunt Patch down and give him a piece of her mind.
Chelsea goes to the hospital to
rag out her father for getting out of bed and jeopardizing his life. He sends
her out to fetch some water while he flashes back to speaking with Steve about
the situation with Hope. When she comes back, she tells him he needs to stop
risking his life. "I wanted some fresh air," he explains. She tells him he has
to get better to get out. Daniel pops in to echo her sentiments. "Listen to your
daughter. She's a smart lady," he
He tells them doing rounds isn't as fun without her around, even if Bo is "Mr.
Fun". Bo doesn't buy this and Dr. Dan sends Chelsea off so he can see what's going on in Bo's
head. Bo points out to Daniel that his daughter obviously has a "thing" for him.
Daniel thinks he's delusional and insists they're just "comfortable" with each
other; she's a cool girl... but just his patient. He's been down that road
before, he explains, and he won't go down it again. Bo asks when he's getting
out. There's still a long road, Daniel says. Bo just wants to see his wife.
"She's smoking hot," Daniel comments, but it'll be awhile. When he walks out,
Chelsea is waiting for him. He just wants to wrap things up and check out early,
he says. She offers to take him to the Java Cafe and he agrees to ditch his lab
coat. She starts to develop a fever as he prepares to go. He tells her they're
just good friends. She says that's a good thing because, otherwise, her
boyfriend might be uncomfortable.
Meanwhile, Caroline goes to
visit Bo. He thanks her for bringing Ciara to see him. She says that the little
girl is missing her mommy and wonders where Hope has been. He tells her that
Hope is in danger but she can't tell anyone about it. He asks her to find a way
to get him out of there as soon as possible.
At Ava's hideaway, Hope asks
Steve what happened at dinner. He tells her there wasn't any dinner: Ava passed
out before they could eat. "There's something way off about her," he observes.
Hope tells him Angelo thinks he's to blame. Ava walks in before Steve can fly
handle. She asks if she's walked in on a "little lover's spat". Steve says that
Hope is just jealous. Hope starts playing it up, accusing Steve of enjoying
being there too much and claiming she can't stand all of this anymore. Ava asks
for a moment alone with "Kayla". Ava gets her some food and Hope demands to know
what she and Steve got up to last night. "The truth is we made love," Ava says.
Hope acts shocked and then says Steve has been acting differently lately; he's
