December 31, 2007
At the pub, Shawn and Belle are decorating for 2008. They kiss, Shawn says
this Christmas was the best of his life. He says he was so proud of her
for telling Phillip off. Belle thinks she snapped a little. Shawn says she had
the nerve to call him out, she finally told him once and for all to get lost.
He says he felt so good when she did that. Belle says she should have done it
a long time ago. Shawn says it's a whole new year and a new beginning. He has
a new resolution to trust her completely as she deserves it. They hug, Belle
of course thinks about being with Phillip.
Outside the pub, Phillip is watching them. He gets a call from Chloe, who
is in the park. She needs his help. someone is following her. She's sure it's
the police and she's about to be arrested. Phillip thinks she's exaggerating,
but says if the police are after her then there isn't much he can do. She says
he is Phillip Kiriakis, he can do anything. Phillip says call him if she's
busted. He hangs up and goes back to spying.
Back in the pub, Shawn tells Belle they have to put this year behind them,
start over with a clean slate. Caroline shows up asking for help. She sees how
they've decorated, she says they've done a great job. Caroline asks Shawn to
help her with some champagne. After Shawn leaves, Phillip comes in to wish
Belle a happy new year, and talk about their future. She tells him to get out
and stay away from her. He says he is sure she does want that. He touches her
face and says they both know what happens when he gets close like now. She
says stop it, get out, this isn't fare. Phillip asks who that speech was made
to impress, him or the Bradys? She says it wasn't an act. She says Shawn will
be back, so go. Phillip thinks she's trying to impress others and not living
her life. She says she wants to be with Shawn, she wants more children, she
wants safety and security. Phillip thinks he can give her that and more, he
won't let her throw her life away. Belle says she didn't marry Shawn out of
guilt, she thought about it and wanted to marry him. He tells her to think
with her heart and not her head, that is where the truth is. Phillip says part
of her does love Shawn, but he thinks she chose him because he's Claire's
father and it is what her friends and family expected. He wants her to stop
pretending. She says she listened to him, now listen to her. She says she
loves Shawn, everything about him, especially when he runs his hands all over
her body. She says Phillip isn't the only one who makes her heart beat fast,
now get out. Phillip says this isn't over and she won't get rid of him that
Shawn soon returns and asks what he's doing here? Phillip says he was just
here to check on Belle. Belle says she asked him to leave, if he doesn't then
she'll get a restraining order. Shawn tells him to get out or he'll throw him
out. Phillip leaves. Belle says she's sorry, this is her fault. He says she
hasn't done anything wrong. Belle says no she made a big mistake. He says they
both did, they are moving on and starting over. She says they can't until this
is out in the open. She says she has to tell him something, something she
should have told him weeks ago. Belle says he should have been told before
they got married. She says she was afraid to lose him, she told herself it was
only once and it didn't matter. Shawn says just tell him. She says she cheated
on him, she slept with Phillip.
Phillip leaves and gets a call from Chloe, she was arrested. Phillip says
keep her mouth shut and he'll be right there. Phillip arrives at the station,
he finds Chloe in an office with an inspector from the Austrian embassy who is
there to arrest Chloe. Chloe is saying she doesn't know any more than they do.
Later Phillip and Chloe talk in private. Chloe tells Phillip the truth. She
says some men broke in during the night, they grabbed Brady and took him. She
says Brady knocked over a glass, that is how he cut himself and got blood
everywhere. She says the men just took him, but they left her. She says she
wanted to call the cops, but all she could think was that the cops would
suspect her given all their fights. He says so she's protecting herself?
She says no Brady. She says she looked, but then she got messages saying to
stop looking or asking questions if she ever wanted to see Brady again. She
says she knew only one person could help her, him. She says if she had gone to
the cops right away then she may have had a chance, but not now. She can't
help Brady in jail. She begs Phillip to help her, she'll do anything he wants.
Phillip asks what she could do for him? Chloe doesn't know, she doesn't have
anything to offer. Phillip says maybe there is something she can do.
At Sami's, EJ holds Allie and tells her that her mommy will be home soon,
she just went to find his daddy. There is a knock at the door, EJ answers it
to find Stefano, a huge man and a baby carriage. Stefano says he has come to
take his grandson, for a walk in the park. EJ asks who this guy is? Stefano
says Carmine, his body guard. EJ wonders why he needs this guy? Stefano says
he has to ask? He says a few people in town are wary of the DiMeras, with
Carmine on the job there will be no worries. Stefano wants to take the child,
but EJ says no. Stefano walks in and asks what he means? Is he not this
child's grandfather? EJ says he's not, this is Allie. Stefano asks for Johnny,
he wants to take him out. EJ says that isn't a good idea. Stefano asks
why it isn't a good idea? Is the boy sick? Does he have a cold. Stefano says
this pram is the best money can buy. EJ says that isn't it, Sami is not here.
Stefano saw her running off, probably looking for Lucas. He says EJ is
Johnny's father, it's up to the man to make decisions. He wants to take Johnny
to the park. EJ says and then what, he'll take him on a plane so they never
see him again. What is his plan. Stefano says EJ's obsession with this woman
is making him weak and clouding his thoughts. EJ says he has never been
stronger or seen things more clearly. Stefano says she's manipulating and
controlling him, but EJ thinks that he is the one doing this. Stefano says it
pains him to see EJ as a paid baby sitter with no voice or authority. EJ says
it's his decision, Johnny is his son. EJ says if Stefano takes him, he doesn't
believe he'll bring him back. EJ says it isn't acceptable to Sami or him. He
tells Stefano to take his pram and leave. Stefano says this disrespect is
ill-advised. EJ asks if he's threatening him? EJ then gets a call from Kate,
who realizes EJ is the one who helped Sami find Lucas. She asks what is wrong
with him, he could have had Sami to himself. He says this isn't a good time,
he's with the twins. He hangs up. Stefano then tells Elvis that he always
counted on him to be a good soldier. He says he failed on occasion, but he
gave him a chance to redeem himself. Stefano says youth and inexperience leads
a man astray. Stefano says the time does come when a man must make hard
decisions, that time is now. Stefano says EJ will either be a devoted son and
soldier, or the enemy, there is no in between. Stefano says he wants to see
Johnny and now, this is his last chance. EJ says or what, finish his threat.
Stefano says he thinks he wants to harm him? He's his father. EJ says he is a
man who doesn't like to be crossed. He asks if he'll do what Santo did to the
Bradys? Is he going to do what he did to Tony, send him to an island? Will he
do what he did to Renee? (This is NOT a blooper referring to Lexie/Renee
Jones. Stefano had a daughter in the 80s named Renee DuMonde). How far will he
go to get what he wants? Stefano says what a dark day this is, he never
foresaw this. He never thought EJ would turn on him. He says his other
children perhaps, but never him. Stefano wishes he knew what he did to deserve
this. Stefano asks if he's not shown him love, given him everything? EJ says
yes in many ways he was a wonderful father. Stefano asks then why is he his
adversary? EJ says he's not denying him access to Johnny, he's just being
careful. He won't let Stefano see him without him, or take him. Stefano says
this hurts him more than he can tell him. Stefano says when the chips are
down, watch out as he intends to win. Stefano then leaves, saying keep the
pram as a gift. EJ tells his father they have lots of secrets and skeletons in
their closets, but don't take his son from him. Stefano thinks that is threat
number two he's made. He tells EJ he's an ingrate, a turncoat! EJ says he
raised him a DiMera, that makes for a dangerous enemy. Stefano finally leaves.
At the airport, Sami shows up and begs Lucas not to leave. She says he
promised they would talk about this. Lucas says he can't stay, he explained in
the letter. She begs him not to go. She says she believes he is innocent. Sami
says they will prove it, he doesn't have to run. Lucas asks how she found
them? Sami says it doesn't matter. Kate says they don't have time for this,
the truck driver is waiting. Sami thinks this is Kate's idea, but Kate says
Lucas made up his own mind. Lucas tells Kate to give him a moment. Lucas talks
to Sami, he says his mind is made up. Sami tells Lucas that she is sorry what
she put him through, she's sorry she took him for granted while being stuck on
this vendetta. She says they can work through this. Lucas says they can't,
it's too late. Sami asks why? Lucas says he has done something that he has to
pay for. He says he tried to stop her from marry EJ, and he basically handed
her over to EJ. HE says they kept saying it was temporary, it was a marriage
in name only. However he knew if she married him, it would be over for them
for good. He says it was his job to protect her and he couldn't do it. Sami
asks if he's saying he . . . . She says he told her that he didn't do it.
Lucas says he lied. Lucas says he did do it, he's the one who put the bullet
in EJ's back. Sami says that can't be true. She says he wouldn't lie to her
about this. Lucas says he was protecting her, with EJ around he knew nobody
was safe. Lucas says he didn't plan it, after she left something inside him
snapped. He says that is when he remembered the gun. He says he got it out,
but put it back as he thought he could stop the wedding without violence.
However he says that wasn't possible, he knew there was only one thing he
could do. We see flashbacks of the gloved hand behind the curtain shooting. He
says he took the gun and shot, his only regret is that EJ didn't die. Sami
says this will start a new war, he just put them in even more danger. Lucas
says that's why he's going, they'll come after him. Sami says they will go
after everyone connected to him. Lucas says he did this because he loves her.
Sami tells him not to touch her! Sami says he can't make this better, nothing
Kate shows up again telling Lucas they have to go. She says don't throw
everything away for a woman who will always need another man. She says Sami
found them via her good friend EJ, they tracked them in the company car. She
also says right now EJ is at their apartment taking care of the twins. Sami
says she had no choice but to leave them with EJ. She says if it weren't for
what Lucas did, they'd all be at home happy. Sami asks how he could do this?
How could he shoot EJ? She says they can't fix this, they can't go back.
Suddenly the sirens are heard. Kate tells Lucas the police are on their way,
walk away. Sami says sure listen to mommy, take the easy way out and make his
son proud. Sami says maybe Kate is right, she's sorry. She's sorry she hurt
him, just go. Lucas doesn't want to lose her. Kate tells Lucas they have to
go. Lucas tells Sami he loves her. Suddenly Roman shows up with the cops. Kate
begs Roman to give them a running start, but Lucas says it's over. Roman says
he's sorry, but he has to do this. Roman arrests Lucas for EJ's murder. Sami
runs off in tears as Roman reads Lucas his rights.

January 2, 2008
Marlena is at home. Outside people are screaming "Happy New
Year!" The neighbor rings her doorbell to see if she'd like to come over
to her party? Marlena says she thinks she's going to stay in with a good book.
The neighbor says she understands and wishes her happy new year. Marlena
starts reading a book, but hears the music from next door. She looks up at a
photo of John and thinks this is a sign. She says she gets it.
At the station, Bo and Roman are eating pizza and discussing
Chloe, who is in the other office with Phillip. They don't know if she's
telling the truth, thinking Chloe should have come here immediately asking for
help and not gone to her class reunion. A man delivers a bunch of stuff for
Bo, he signs for it. It's from Hope, it's a card and a tux. She says get
himself over to Chez Rouge, she has plans for his lips at midnight. Roman lets
him go, saying he can handle things here.
Phillip is still talking to Chloe about the people who took
Brady. Chloe insists she's innocent, but Phillip says she hid a kidnapping and
lied. Chloe says she tried to find Brady but someone sent her a note
threatening to kill him if she didn't stop. He asks where the note is? She
says she threw it away, she packed that night and flew out. Chloe asks Phillip
what he wants from her for his help? He hopes a woman who would hide her
disappearance won't have a problem with what he wants. He says in
exchange for his help, move in on Shawn, get as close to him as humanly
possible. She says he's pimping her out? He says Belle is already in love with
him, he just needs to come between them more. Chloe can't believe him, he and
Shawn used to be such good friends. She says she doesn't know about Belle, but
Shawn is in love with his wife. Phillip says take the deal or they'll say
goodbye forever. Chloe says Shawn is a great guy and she won't use him.
Phillip says she is already defending Shawn, that's all she has to do to real
him in. Phillip motions to the lawyer he brought for her, if she does what he
asks then he'll keep her out of a Austrian prison where she'll be eating
Vienna sausages on a dirty plate. Chloe asks how long until she's out? Phillip
says they could ring in the new year together. She asks if he's buying?
Phillip says of course. Later the lawyer takes care of the bail and
everything. Chloe then remembers one last thing, the men that took Brady, they
said something about Belle and took a photo of her. Phillip says he has to
find Belle right away. Phillip runs off.
At the pub, we see a replay of Belle tells Shawn that she
slept with Phillip. She says it happened once, after her dad died, she was
confused and it meant nothing. She says she is sorry she lied. She didn't want
to start the new year this way, she loves him. She begs Shawn to look at her,
to talk to her. He says talk to Phillip, that is what she does whenever she
has a problem. She says it will never happen again. Shawn asks if it was
before or after they got married. She says before. He thinks she's been lying
to him. She says she loves him. He says she loves Phillip too. She says she
wants them to be a family. She says they can get passed this if he forgives
her. He says so what, they just get passed her cheating on him? She says they
can work towards trusting each other. He says he did trust her, he forgave her
for so much already . . . he doesn't owe her a damn thing. She says but they
have a daughter. He asks if she thought of Claire when she was in bed with
Phillip? Shawn asks how many times are they supposed to start over? Belle says
she can't take back what she did. Shawn asks why she married him? She says she
loves him and wants to spend her life with him. She says she doesn't want to
see Phillip again. Shawn says so that job she set up to get him out of town,
that was for them too? She says yes. He says he fell for it all, all the lies
and excuses she came up with to be to him. He says he basically handed Phillip
the key to their bedroom. He blames himself for trusting her too many times.
She says she won't give up, she loves him. Shawn says those are words, she
doesn't know how to love anyone, he was too blind to see it. He asks why he
should forgive her? He says he bent over backwards to give her and Claire a
house and a life. He says she's taken the one thing he has left, his pride. He
says she doesn't care about them, that is the truth. Belle asks if he loves
her? He says yes. She says then they can fix this. She says they can learn
from this and be stronger. She says tell her that he wants that. He says what
he wants is a divorce! She says no, they have a good marriage. He says they
never had one at all. He says he won't fight over Claire, she's a good mother.
He says he'll pay support and get as much visitation as he can. He says Belle
should go to her mom's house for the night, Claire is a sleep so don't wake
her. He says his family will be here soon, so go. Belle packs her bag and says
this is it, he's not going to fight for them? Shawn says there is nothing left
to fight for. Belle then leaves.
Outside the pub Phillip finds Belle crying. He asks what is
wrong? She says just leave her alone. He asks where she's going? She says she
told Shawn about them, it's over. Phillip says he's sorry. Belle asks why he's
here? Phillip says Chloe says she could be in danger. Belle says Chloe can go
to hell, so can he. Belle then walks off.
At Chez Rouge, people are dancing, including Steve and Kayla.
Kayla says this feels wonderful. She says it's like they've done this every
year. Steve says they will do it every year from now on. Steve tells Kayla how
beautiful she is, she says he's so handsome in his suit. Soon Bo shows
up, Maggie tells Bo and Hope she may have to name them the most beautiful
couple in the room. Maggie asks if they spoke to Marlena, is she going to
come? They don't know, but Marlena shows up and says she and John never missed
a fabulous party. Maggie says John would be so proud of her. Marlena says he
practically insisted she come.
Steve, Kayla, Bo, Hope and Marlena all gather to wish each
other happy New Years. Steve tells Marlena she looks wonderful. He dips her
and kisses her and says that is for showing up tonight. They all sit at their
table. Marlena makes the first official toast, to cherished friends and
wonderful memories. Marlena looks over and sees the back of a man who looks
like John, until he turns around. Hope soon toasts to a girls weekend at a
decadent spa. Kayla likes that idea. Bo then toasts to Hope, his one and only
great love. He also toasts to his sister Kayla, who sees the good in everyone.
He says she is his hero. Bo then toasts to Marlena for joining them, she is
part of this family. He says she's smart, beautiful and funny. He says John
was a lucky man and smart enough to know it. Steve says hey Bo left him out! A
song plays, Steve asks Marlena to dance, he promises not to step on her toes.
She says maybe later. Kayla dances with him.
Steve and Kayla dance, Steve thinks Kayla has a look . . . the
look she gets when she's about to drop a bombshell. Kayla says she made an
appointment with the fertility specialist, they have to do a few tests. She
says it is nothing major. Steve starts doing a silly dance, saying it's a
fertility dance. She says this isn't a big deal, all he has to do is give a
sample and his part is done. Steve says he can do that. He then makes Kayla do
his silly dance with him.
Back at the table, Bo asks Marlena how she is holding up? She
says fine, and she doesn't want anyone to feel guilty about celebrating. She
says she misses John, she's trying hard to feel like she hasn't let him down.
Hope asks how she could let him down? She says right now John would be on a
plane to find Brady. Bo says he and Roman are looking for him as they speak.
Marlena says she made a resolution to pull their family back together. Bo and
Hope offer to help her keep that promise.
Hope and Bo dance, Bo thanks her for the surprise at the
station. He thinks Roman was glad to get rid of him and work all night long.
She says he could have come with Marlena. Bo says they shouldn't go there. Bo
says seeing Marlena here, it hits home that every dance counts. Hope says
she's really worried about Brady. Bo knows she can't take another loss. Hope
makes a new years resolution to spend more time with him and the kids. Bo says
he doesn't have a resolution as much as a wish, he'll show her later.
Marlena sits at the table and looks at the photo of John as a
boy. The man she saw earlier asks Marlena if she'd like to dance? She says
maybe later. He says he looks forward to it. Later Marlena sees Crystal come
in. They lock eyes and Crystal leaves. Marlena follows her. Marlena asks why
she's here? Crystal has been looking for her. Marlena confronts her about her
lies about her store, it's been closed for months. Crystal says she's trying
to help her. Marlena says about John? Crystal says no, his son. Marlena asks
if she knows where Brady is? She says Brady is in danger, she needs him. She
says the picture will guide her, the one John got. Marlena asks how she knows
this? Crystal can't say, all she can tell her is that Brady's destiny is
involved. Marlena wonders if she thought she was an easy mark seeing John's
obituary in the paper of something? Crystal runs off when she hears footsteps.
Bo, Hope. Steve and Kayla show up wondering what's going on. Marlena says
nothing and she has to go.
Marlena shows up at the station to see Chloe. Marlena demands
to know where Brady is. Chloe says her lawyer says she can't talk about it.
Marlena grabs her, Chloe's lawyer wants to press charges for assault. Chloe
says it's fine, she can handle this. Marlena asks Chloe who Crystal is, are
they in on this together, is this a DiMera plot? Chloe says she doesn't know
and she'd never hurt them, if she has more questions then call her lawyer. She
then stomps off.
Later everyone gathers at the pub. Hope asks about Belle,
where is she? Shawn says she went over to see Marlena. Bo says they have time
for another toast before the new year. Kayla says not another one. Bo toasts
to their kids, may it bring good fortune, good health, love peace and
Belle goes to her mom's and hugs her, saying she didn't know
where else to go. Belle says he won't talk to her, he wants a divorce. Marlena
says give him time. Belle says he couldn't forgive her, it was too much too
much to expect. Marlena says forgiveness is never too much to expect from
someone you love.
As the new year is rung in, Shawn and Belle are apart, while
Phillip is with Chloe.
Belle ends up falling asleep on her mom's couch. Marlena looks
at the photo of John on her mantle. She says she made a promise to put this
family back together, God help anyone who tries to stop her! At the pub, Bo
and Hope and Steve and Kayla are all kisses, while Shawn drinks a beer and
sneaks off. Over at Chez Rouge, Phillip is with Chloe. Phillip is all smiles.

be lost in his arms, to feel loved. Mrlena says understanding why she did it
is a big step, now she can explain it to Shawn. Belle says it was just a
moment, she thinks she and Shawn can move on. from this. Marlena is worried,

Belle decides to go check on her. She goes to get Claire, Roman then shows up
as Belle and Claire are heading out.
Roman realizes Marlena hasn't told Belle about that psychic Crystal, as
Marlena cut him off before he could say anything. Marlena says Belle has
enough on her mind right now. Marlena asks if there is news on Crystal? He
says no, but he found something on the medallion in the photo. He says it's a
Celtic design, the mark of a warrior woman. He doesn't know where it was made
or who by, but he'll keep working. He says he needs to ask her something, why
is it so important for her to track down this so called psychic. Marlena
doesn't know if she's a so called psychic. Roman says so she thinks she's the
real deal and John is alive? Marlena says she knew about the picture of John
as a child, she told only him and Hope. Roman says he's been a cop a long
time, there are ways people can pull cons. She thinks Crystal is up to
something, she doesn't think she's a con though. Roman has a feeling this is
all Stefano, but Marlena doesn't get the sense he's involved. Roman says if
Crystal shows up again, let him know. He says he'll keep looking into the
picture. Roman then heads out. Marlena picks up her phone and calls a number.
At the pub, Shawn returns and tells Hope that Claire was glad to see her
mother. Shawn doesn't want to talk about it, he's told her that Belle cheated
but doesn't want to talk about it. Hope says she has to talk, she has to tell
him something. Hope confesses she knew about the affair, she didn't know what
to do. He says she should have told him. She wants him to let his anger out
and not do something stupid. He says like what, drive my car through a wall?
He says he won't. He says this is the last time he lets Belle and Phillip make
a fool of him. He says his life is going the way he wants it to, he won't let
them screw that up. Hope says once he calms down maybe he can talk to Belle.

is in danger. Phillip says Belle could get hurt, he has to talk to her and
Chloe about this. Shawn says he's done talking and tells Phillip to get the
hell out. Phillip says he's going. He leaves and makes a call to Marlena.

something about Claire's school and records. Marlena says she's not here,
she's at Sami's. Back in the pub, Hope apologizes to Shawn for lying him. She
says she just wanted to protect him. He says he gets it, he won't get angry
like he would have. He says it's a new year and he will deal with all his
problems on his own. He then heads out.
At Sami's, EJ shows up to warn Sami that he fears his father may do
something to Lucas. He tells her how he has stood up to his father where
Johnny is concerned, saying they will raise him how they see fit without his
input. Sami says Stefano isn't just going to listen to him, unless EJ has
something on Stefano? Does he? EJ says all he has on his father is that
he's his favorite son. Sami asks EJ why he's here offering to help Lucas? He
says he made a promise to his son to change and he means to keep it. Sami says
Lucas has Kate and he's sure she has some lawyer and a plan. She says she's
sick of it, she loves him, but sometimes she thinks . . . . Sami says
Lucas knew she was willing to sacrifice a lot to end the violence. EJ says so
it was a sacrifice. She says she divorced her husband to marry him, that's a
sacrifice. He says he was shot at the wedding, but turned out not to be as
hurt as they thought. Sami asks EJ to go to his father and talk to him. EJ
says he'll do what he can. Sami says everything he can, please. EJ then
leaves. Sami looks at a photo of her, Will and Lucas. The babies cry so she

Belle and Sami talk. BElle tells Sami she's sorry about Lucas. Sami says she's
been better, how about her? Belle says Shawn wants a divorce, she told him
about Phillip. She says she couldn't live with the guilt anymore, now her
marriage might be over. Sami says Shawn will forgive her. Belle says she loves
him with all her heart, Phillip is out of her system, she knows who and what
she wants. Sami says she knows then that they'll get back together. They soon
start talking about Lucas, Sami is afraid she and Lucas are worse off, Lucas
shot EJ. BElle is stunned, she thought Lucas didn't do it. Sami says Lucas
lied to her and finally admitted he shot EJ. Sami says she thought she
knew Lucas, but maybe she didn't. Belle says that is how Shawn felt, it was
like she was a stranger to him. Sami says she made a mistake. She says in fact
she loves her a little more for not being perfect. There is a knock at the
door, it's Crystal and a man. They say they just moved in upstairs, a silver
car is in their space. Belle says that's hers. She says they'll move it, she
and Claire will head back to Grandma's. Claire and Belle then leave.
In the hall, Crystal tells Belle that she can't explain, but the have to
come with them. They say they are here to help. Belle gets upset and screams
for Sami. Phillip shows up and asks what is wrong? Crystal and the man run
off. Phillip hugs them, he says they are safe. Belle and all get inside Sami's
place. Phillip says he told her that she was in danger. Phillip says he's
driving her back to her mom's, he will get a bodyguard on her too. She says it
won't be happening, she doesn't need another strange man in her life. After
they leave, Sami gets a call from Lucas. The answering machine gets it, he
says pick up, he misses her. She listens but doesn't answer. Lucas says just
remember that he loves her.
At Stefano's, Stefano is on the phone and learns that Lucas is in jail and
has been arrested. He then asks his bodyguard Carmine to do something for him.
Later Stefano is playing chess when Rolf shows up. Stefano is not pleased,
Rolf is falling further and further behind with their houseguest. He keeps
promising he'll be ready, but he's not. Stefano says when he gets new
information he needs his soldier ready to act. Rolf says he will be. Stefano
says he doesn't think so and he'll have to take matters into his own hands.
EJ shows up at the mansion. Rolf is at the door and won't let EJ in. He
says his father is very busy. Suddenly there is a huge scream (clearly John's
voice!). EJ asks what that was? EJ barges in, he asks who that was? Stefano
shows up and asks Elvis if there is a problem? He says their guest doesn't
want to be disturbed. EJ asks what he's doing? Rolf says it is a project
of his. Stefano says it isn't his business anymore. Stefano asks why he's
coming here, has he come to apologize, has he come to his senses. EJ says he's
not going to keep him from seeing Johnny, just no unsupervised visits. Stefano
asks EJ what he wants from him then? EJ wants Stefano's word that Lucas won't
be killed before he goes to trial. Stefano is furious, he can't reject who he
is, the family code, traditions. He says he's supposed to do this for him, so
EJ can pretend to be less than he is? Stefano says it's too late, the wheel is
already in motion.
Down in Stefano's lab, we see the patient reaching for a ringing cell
phone. He goes to answer it. Back at Marlena's, the number she called is this
cell phone! She asks if someone is there? She says she's looking for Stefano.
She asks who this is, answer her? The patient hangs up on her.
Meanwhile in jail, Lucas is taken to a cell where Carmine is already
waiting . . . .
January 4 , 2007
At Marlena's, Belle talks with Marlena about what happened outside of
Sami's. Belle says the way the woman was talking, it was like there was a
sense of urgency in her voice. Marlena asks exactly what happened? Belle
says it was a man and woman, they claimed they just moved in. They said she
had to come with them, they'd explain why if they did. Phillip says that's
when he arrived. He thinks this is strange, the guys who took Brady were
interested in her picture. Marlena wonders what the hell is going on here, her
husband is murdered now this. Belle says nothing happened, she and Claire are
fine, no reason to worry. Phillip says he found her pounding on Sami's door
afraid for her life. Marlena agrees with Phillip, they have to take this
seriously. Phillip wants a bodyguard on her, Marlena wants an officer watching
Claire when she's away from the house. Belle asks if she gets a say? She says
she doesn't want a bodyguard or Phillip's help. Claire wakes up, so Belle goes
to tend to her. Marlena tells Phillip she will take care of Belle, he needs to
do what is best for Belle and leave. Belle returns with Claire, Marlena takes
her into the kitchen for animal crackers. Phillip says her mom isn't happy
with him. Belle says she wonders why? She says her husband died, Brady is
missing and now her daughter's marriage is falling apart. Belle says her mom
doesn't need him around pushing. Phillip says he gets it, tell Claire he said
goodbye. Belle tells him to wait. She says he keeps trying to help, but he has
to stop. She can't fix things with Shawn if he's always around. Phillip says
he cares about her and Claire, if anything happened to them then he'd never
forgive himself. He says they were a family, he still feels a responsibility
to keep them safe. He says if she ever needs anything to call him, no ulterior
motives, just a friend helping another. Phillip then leaves.
Later the phone rings so Belle answers it. It's Crystal on the phone. She
thinks Belle is Marlena, Crystal tells her that she's so sorry but they didn't
mean her daughter any harm. Belle asks who this is? Belle hands the phone to
her mom, Marlena asks who this is. Crystal says it's her, she wanted to
apologize, she may have upset her daughter earlier. Marlena says that was her
who attacked her? Crystal says she did no such thing, she was trying to help
her. Marlena says by scaring the daylights out of her? Marlena asks what she
wants from them? Crystal says she's in danger, she can't say any more over the
phone. Marlena says she's done with this, leave her and her family alone.
Crystal says if Marlena wants answers then meet her at the Brady Pub in
fifteen minutes. Crystal then hangs up. Marlena plans to go meet her, which
Belle doesn't like. Belle thinks something more is going on here. Marlena says
she'll take care of it, she'll be okay. Marlena then leaves. She checks her
purse, we see she has a gun! Marlena goes to meet Crystal, only to find
her car is all frozen up. Belle calls her mom's cell phone, but by the time
Marlena gets to it, Belle has hung up. Suddenly someone shows up walking
towards Marlena. She pulls out a gun and tells them to stop!
Roman is at Sami's, Sami is calling Carrie telling her that she needs to
talk to Will. Will is apparently off ice fishing. Sami says this is important,
he needs to call her back. Sami knows Will is just making excuses not to take
her calls. She tells her dad this is serious, she has to tell him that his
father has been arrested so he can hate her even more. Sami gets this is all
her fault for marrying EJ, and she is worried what the DiMeras have planned
for Lucas. Roman says Lucas is safe at the station, nothing will happen to him
there. Roman says they can make arrangements for Lucas to call Will and
explain this to him. Sami says Lucas can't make overseas calls from jail.
Roman thinks they can make it work. Later Sami tosses a ball into the glove
she bought Will last Christmas. She says she wanted to send it to him, but she
wanted to make some sugar cookies and send some of the licorice he likes too.
However once he sees it is from her, he won't want it. Roman suggests he try
calling Will. Roman calls Will, we hear his voice on the phone. Roman talks to
Will about what he's been doing. Will says he missed not being at home with
them all. Roman says he has someone who would like to talk to him. He hands
the phone to Sami. Sami asks how he's been. He says Uncle Austin taught him
how to snowboard. Will asks if dad is around. Sami says that is why she is
calling .Will asks if something happened to him? Can he talk to him? Will
hasn't heard from him since Christmas. Sami says he hasn't called because he
is in jail. Will says he knew he'd get caught. Sami asks what he means. Did he
know? Will says just tell his dad that he loves him. Sami says she will, and
he'll try and call as soon as he can. Will has hung up on Sami. Sami ends up
in tears. She can't believe Will knew about this, she thinks Lucas told him
and then shipped him off to Europe. Sami thinks Will will never want to come
home now. Roman says Will does miss her, but she says he won't want to
leave as he doesn't have to put up with this crap form Carrie and Austin. Sami
thinks Will has been made an accessory to Lucas' crime. Roman says he knows
she is upset, and what Lucas did was reckless and irresponsible, but remember
how much she loves him. Sami feels for the twins, they won't have a normal
childhood now. She says when she had Will she made so many mistakes, she was
obsessed with Austin, she cost Lucas years with Will. She says that is the
biggest regret of her life, she didn't want to make that mistake with the
twins. She thought it was her second chance to get it right. Roman says this
was beyond her control. Sami says all she wanted was for Allie and Johnny not
to worry about the DiMeras, but now they will. She thinks the vendetta will be
up and running, now the burden is on the twins. Roman says he did it for her,
in his own twisted way. Roman says he did it for her like she did when she
married EJ. Sami says he lied to her, how could he do that. Roman says their
children need both of them. Sami asks how when he'll be serving life in
prison. Roman says they don't know that, but even more a reason to work things
out. Roman says Lucas wasn't thinking, he was following his instincts. He says
when people do that, it's not pretty. Sami tells her dad not to look at her
like that, like she's made a million mistakes and expects to be forgiven but
can't forgive Lucas for his. Roman says what he's thinking is that Lucas is
the father of her children, she loves him, it would be nice if she at least
went to see him. Roman gets a call from Belle, she's worried about her mom.
Belle says her mom got a phone call from a woman named Crystal and ran off to
meet her, she doesn't know where. Roman says stay right there, he'll find her
mom. Belle says she can't sit here, she'll meet him at the police station.
Sami asks what is going on? Roman tells her that she needs to take care of her
plate which is way too full, he'll deal with this. He just says Belle is
worried about their mom, he's sure it's nothing.
After Roman leaves, Lucas shows up to see Sami and talk about Lucas. Sami
doesn't really want to talk about Lucas. Phillip says he's hired the best
lawyers for him, but he needs to cooperate. Sami says she hopes he rots in
jail, he didn't want her help so he can get himself out. Phillip says that
won't happen without help. Phillip asks Sami to talk to him, convince him to
work with them. Sami says no way. Phillip says doesn't she owe it to Allie and
Will to help him. He says call him, or go see him. Sami says she will go see
him, to give him a piece of her mind. Phillip says go easy on him. Sami says
she has it under control, this was an excellent idea.
At the station, EJ shows up asking an officer to see Lucas. The officer
says he's not family or on the list, so he can't see him. EJ says he doesn't
understand the danger Lucas is in. Lucas asks if Roman, Bo or Abe is here? He
says sorry buddy. Kate shows up. EJ says Lucas is in trouble and this idiot
won't let him see Lucas. HE asks Kate to talk to the officer. Kate asks the
officer to see Lucas, so he goes to check on things. Kate asks EJ why he's
suddenly concerned about her son's safety? EJ says because he cares about Sami
and doesn't want to see her hurt. Kate says if her son is hurt, Sami won't be
the only one hurt, tell his daddy that.
In the cell, Carmine talks to Lucas and asks what they have him in here
for, too many traffic tickets? Lucas says a long story, he doesn't want to
talk about it. Carmine asks if he has a smoke. Lucas says no. Carmine says
he's been trying to quit, it's not easy. Lucas says no offense, but he's not
looking to make new friends. Carmine says that is cool. A guard comes and
takes Lucas to see a visitor, which he hopes is Sami.
Lucas meets with Kate. Kate asks if anyone has threatened him since being
here? Lucas says there is a big guy in his cell who talks his ear off. Kate is
worried about Stefano. Kate says they are working to get him a lawyer and out
of here. Lucas says great, he'll be in the chair before no time. Kate says
she's trying to defend him and she was before he let Sami get in the way.
Lucas wants to go back to his cell, but Kate demands he hear her out. She says
he needs everyone he can get in his corner. He says not her, every time she
tries to help him it ends in a huge disaster. Lucas says he knows what she's
going to do, he's going to ask her to chose between her and Sami. Kate says he
chose Sami and look where he ended up. Lucas says he wants nothing to do with
her, he has her name taken off the visitor list. Kate tells Lucas if Will was
behind bars, would he stand back and let him throw his life away? She says she
doesn't think so. She says she won't stop loving him because he made a
mistake. He says he doesn't need her love. Kate knows he needs Sami's, the
same woman who won't return his calls. Kate says Sami made it clear it was
over. Lucas tells her to go. Kate says remember one thing, when the chips are
down at the end of the day, she is the only one who will be there for him and
won't turn her back on him. She says be careful, she loves him. Kate then
Kate sees EJ, she tells him that Lucas is fine. EJ says he's still
convinced they need to be extra vigilant, they know what his father is capable
of. She thinks he's just trying to play hero to impress Sami. EJ says he'd
listen to his warning if he was her. Later EJ sees some mug shots of
Carmine on the desk. He asks if this man is here? The officer asks why he'd
tell him? EJ punches the officer, so they grab him to lock him up.
Lucas is taken back to his cell. Carmine is still there. Lucas remembers
arguing with Sami when he was caught by the cops. Later EJ is thrown in
the cell with Lucas. EJ tells Carmine that he knows him. Carmine asks pretty
boy what he'll do about it?
At the mansion, Stefano gets a call and asks if it is done? He says enough
with the stalling, Lucas must pay! Later Rolf tells Stefano they have to talk
about the houseguest. Stefano says Rolf should work with him, right now there
is a pest in a jail cell that needs to be squashed. Later Stefano is pacing
around the mansion. He says don't be shy, make yourself at home. He says Dr.
Rolf is making progress it seems. The houseguest was apparently sitting in
Stefano's chair having a cigar. He gets up and leaves. Later Rolf is
talking to the houseguest, telling him it is time for his next injection. He
goes to give it to him, but the guest grabs his hand!
