Deals With the Devil.
walks into the Kiriakis mansion. Victor isn't happy to see him. EJ repeats his
offer for a quick divorce settlement. Victor tells EJ that he's just as rude and
thoughtless now as yesterday. EJ apologizes, acts concerned about Kate and asks
to be heard. "I don't make deals with the devil," Victor states. EJ threatens to
drag him through the mud and have him charged with fraud. He points out that the
only witness Victor has against Nicole is Jan Speers and she's in a coma. Victor
refuses to be blackmailed. EJ starts bringing up all of Victor's past wives and
threatening to have full disclosure of his assets published. Victor sits down
and ignores EJ before he thumps a request on the table. "Did he take the deal?"
Nicole queries as she walks in. "Hell no!" Victor barks. She could buy a small
country with what she's asking for, he says, and she isn't worth it. Henderson
comes in and she begins ordering things for a big party. He stands with his
mouth open as the list expands. Victor tells him to go. Nicole wants an ice
sculpture in the likeness of pookie. Victor offers to settle things now... if
they cut her offer in half, they have a deal. EJ tries to argue, but Nicole
jumps at it. EJ's disturbed, but she just wants this over with. She accepts it,
which makes Victor relatively happy. EJ leaves to start the paperwork. When she
offers to make peace with her soon-to-be ex, Victor suggests that she's just
getting set to run off to her new victim.
and Roman are walking by the docks. Abe seems absent-minded. He tells Roman that
work is the only thing keeping him sane right now, but he doesn't want to talk
about it. They chat about Marlena instead. Roman's sure she'll be better off
living on her own, though Sami might not be. As they analyse the situation,
Chloe eavesdrops. They wonder if Lucas is stupid enough to run. Abe leaves to
check the warehouse and Eric calls to check in with his father.
the DiMera mansion, Lucas is reading the TV listings in the paper when a sweaty
Sami comes in. She's been jogging and they chat about how hot it is. She
suggests they go to the lake and uses this to segue into discussing how he could
get his ankle monitor off. He shifts the conversation, telling her that living
there isn't working for them: She should go live with her mother, he suggests.
She refuses. "Then let EJ go," he suggests. The doorbell rings: It's Chloe. Sami
isn't welcoming but Lucas is. She asks to talk to him alone. Sami tries to stick
around by pretending to look for her sunglasses. They're on her head, he points
out, closing the door on her. Sami continues to eavesdrop. Lucas kicks the door
and tells her to give him some privacy. He tends to the twins before returning
to Chloe. She asks him why he risked everything by going down to the pier. He
continues to deny it. She doesn't believe him and soon tricks him into admitting
it. He explains that he just needed to get away and clear his head. Nobody knows
he can slip out though and he wants to keep it that way.
arrives at the pub to see his daughter. She updates him about Kayla and the
baby. She wants to talk about Lucas. Roman needs some coffee first. Sami doesn't
order any food because she still has baby bulge. She jumps into exasperated mode
and worries about the Lucas and EJ situation; no matter what happens it will
upset the twins. It sounds to Roman like she doesn't want EJ to leave. She
doesn't. As she repeats that she is only interested in him as a father to her
child, Nicole and EJ walk in. Sami bites. Across the room, EJ agrees to settling
things as long as she's happy. She tells him they should celebrate some other
time, when Sami isn't around to get upset by the sight. She's sorry that this is
all ending; she's really enjoyed getting to know him. He's enjoyed getting to
know her too. After giving him a hug, she walks out, glancing inside through the
window. As she stands there, Dean Robbins comes up to her. "Nicole Walker. So
nice to see you," he smiles. She's as beautiful as the day he met her. She's
clearly disturbed to run into him. He tells her they've got lots of catching up
to do. "We both know you can never say "no" to me," he says. Back inside, EJ
sits with Sami and tells her about Nicole's settlement. He invites her out to
dinner. She can't do that: How would it look? He reminds her that she was in bed
with him before Lucas returned and she started running after him again. She
doesn't have any answers. That's why they need to talk, he says. They need to
have a conversation about something else first, she says. Lucas says that one of
them has to move out and it won't be her.
is in his bed with Stephanie. He remembers his fight with Dean Robbins, wakes up
and pulls on his pants. Soon, Stephanie wakes up and notices him gone. She
hurries downstairs and searches for him without luck. She calls Nick and asks
for help. Meanwhile, Max stalks across town to Dean Robbins' room at the Salem
Inn. He breaks in. He tears the room apart searching for something. Without
luck, he stops and breathes deep. Looking down, he finds a photo. He can hear
the Dean in the hall and ducks into the bedroom.
the hospital, Steve and Kayla worry about their daughter. "Max is going through
a lot of things right now that you're not really aware of," she informs him.
After she tells him about Max's veritable double life and how he's alienating
all of his friends, Steve wonders why he's so tweaked. As Steve worries about
his daughter, their new son is wheeled out by the nurse. They get into their
hospital gear and cuddle with the quiet baby. Stephanie and Nick arrive,
watching them through the glass. They go in and tell them how happy they are to
see the baby getting better. Kayla leaves to start making arrangements for the
nursery. Nick leaves to search for Max. Steve asks Stephanie to tell him about
what's going on.
in the hospital, Kate still refuses to let Daniel perform the surgery on her. He
is more than a family friend and she demands a different doctor. This doesn't
make sense to Chelsea and Daniel objects. Kate insists that this is her
decision. After having Chelsea leave, Daniel asserts: "I know exactly what this
is about." She repeats her decision. Leaning in close to her, he tells her that
she is the one who will have to explain this to Chelsea. He walks out and finds
Phillip in the corridor waiting for an update. He tells him the situation and
Phillip offers to talk some sense into his mother. Going in, he tries, but has
no luck. A nurse comes in to prep her. She breathes deep as she says goodbye to
her son and granddaughter.
Victor arrives and is baffled to see that Daniel isn't performing the operation.
The doctor offers to go and see how things are going. Victor wonders what's
going on with Kate. He and Phillip discuss the divorce settlement. "We better
count the silverware before she moves out," Phillip jokes. Victor apologizes to
his son for what he said last night; he's already ahead of where he was at his
age and he trusts him with the business. Daniel returns and tells them that the
surgery went well and Kate will soon be back to her normal self. Daniel then
takes Chelsea aside and asks her out to dinner. Victor watches and grimaces.
June 17, 2008
and Hope are hungry from "crime busting" so they go to the pub. Bo wishes
they actually got more "busting" done. John sticks his head in, interrupting
them and flatly accusing Bo of protecting his little brother. "Why hasn't he
been arrested for torching my goods?" he demands before going into a
paranoid rant. Bo reminds him that drugs were found on John's ship and he
assaulted a police officer. John is unconvinced and continues to pressure
them, repeating his accusations. Bo gets tired and refuses to argue. Hope
promises that Phillip is not getting preferential treatment. Bo repeats that
they can't make an arrest without proof. John's sure they won't get any
sitting around so he leaves to find some himself. After he stomps off, they
sit around the table and discuss John's accusations. Bo hopes that Philip
wouldn't be stupid enough to be involved in all of this. Phillip promptly
arrives to answer their questions. He adamantly refuses that he had anything
to do with the fire or the drugs. Hope leaves to check on Paul's alibi. Bo's
questioning gets interrupted by a call. Before he can run off, Phillip
repeats that he's telling the truth. "I hope so," Bo says.
the DiMera mansion, Lucas wants Chloe to keep his little venture out for
fresh air a secret. Since he's reached out to be her friend when no one else
was offering, she's happy not to turn him in. He thanks her for not saying
anything. They talk about the Sami and EJ situation. She wonders if they
will take his ultimatum seriously and one of them will actually move out. If
they don't, he'll know he has no future with Sami. Chloe thinks she'd be a
fool to give Lucas up. He says that Phillip would be a fool to give her up.
She talks about her problems with his brother until John walks in, jumping
into the conversation and laying into Phillip. Chloe takes the cue to leave.
Lucas and John argue until Lucas decides to find something else to do. John
wants some peace and quiet... or something else and gets on the phone to
Ava. "I've decided to take you up on your offer," he says as he gets her on
quickly arrives at the mansion to lend John her expertise. He makes it clear
that he's not trying to put out a hit on anyone. She offers to help get the
truth out of Paul. If the cops won't go after him and Phillip, she will.
Picking up her phone, she calls Angelo and orders him to pick up Paul and
bring him over. This impresses John, who sprouts a big smile. They begin
discussing his war with the Kiriakis' and the way he's bribed Paul in the
past before he betrayed him. Betrayal is frowned upon in her family. "We'll
make him pay," she promises. She can even make Paul "squeal like a pig".
They wonder what she is capable of now that she isn't on drugs or under her
father's thumb. John reminds her that they are both the inheritors of
substantial "business interests" and should be respectful and stay out of
each other's territory. Blondie thinks he should do good with his new power.
Ava thinks they should combine their powers. "Interesting," he says. Before
he can think it over, Angelo drags Paul in. Paul isn't happy to be there.
John offers to forgive his betrayal if he'll tell him the truth about the
warehouse fire. Angelo and his goon threaten Paul and John repeats his
accusations while Paul protests. Angelo begins slapping Paul while he pleads
his innocence. Angelo takes out his gun. Paul still refuses to admit to
something he didn't do. John stops Angelo from shooting and tells them to
throw him out on the street. "You mean alive?" a baffled Angelo asks. John
says they'll leave him to think things over. They drag Paul out. Lucas looms
around the hall, recognizing Paul from the docks as they bring him out.
returns to his mansion. His thoughts are interrupted when Nicole runs in
searching for Victor. They bicker, but he assures her she won't get any more
money out of his father. She doesn't want money - she wants protection, even
if she has to knock some cash off her settlement. He makes light of this,
but she really needs help. She's reluctant to explain who she needs
protection from and asks him to forget it. Distraught, she runs out, bumping
into Chloe on the way. They wonder what Nicole's problem is, she actually
seems scared. "The only thing I've ever known her to be afraid of is running
out of vodka," she quips. Phillip gets a call tipping him off that the
Vitalis have picked up Paul and brought him to John. He gets off the phone
and tells Chloe that everything is going to be fine. They start making out
but she stops, worried that Victor could walk in. Besides, she's upset about
being such an outcast in town. Phillip smiles and hopes that she considers
him a friend. They start making out again.
the hospital, Steve explains to his daughter that fights with no reason are
not okay. Maybe she should give Max some space while he's going through
something heavy? She defends herself, insisting that she needs to be there
for him. Kayla walks in and the argument heats up. Steve doesn't like the
way Max is keeping things from his daughter and treating her wrong. She
kicks back, reminding Patch that he's put them all in danger himself and has
no right to tell her what to do. She walks off. Patch admits she's right.
Kayla says she has no right to advise her either; Stephanie is a grown up
now and Max is a good kid, even if he has issues. The nurse comes out and
tells them they can see their baby. Kayla tells Steve that they have lots to
be thankful for and he should just be happy. He agrees to back off, but
doubts they even know half of what's going on with Max.
are you living in a hotel room? So you can get a quick getaway?" Nicole asks
as she and Dean Trent Robbins slip down the hall of the Salem Inn to his
room. He laughs with a crude smile. He's preparing to buy a house and
looking forward to "reconnecting" with her. She doesn't seem nearly so
eager. When they walk into the room, he discovers that it is in disarray. He
assumes he's been broken into and calls security before he begins searching
around. Nicole slips off while his back is turned. He calls after her but
she's gone. As he searches the room, Max hides in the shadows behind the
bedroom door. Trent hears something and goes searching in the bedroom. The
room is trashed but empty and the balcony door is open. Bo soon arrives and
checks out the scene. There's not much he can do. Trent is upset. Bo asks
him if he has any enemies. He has no idea. After Bo leaves, Trent calls
Nicole and asks her why she ran out. He still needs to see her again; they
have some catching up which is "long overdue".
tries calling around for Max without any luck. He goes into the pub and asks
Hope if she's seen him anywhere. She hasn't. He tells her about Steph's
worries and she suddenly arrives. As she worries, Max pops up. She tells him
she's worried sick. Hope wanders off and Nick asks where he vanished to. Max
claims he just went for a run; he's not a little kid or crazy so he can take
care of himself. Meanwhile, Bo returns with news that the Dean's room was
broken into. Nick overhears and asks about it. Bo asks if he knows anyone
who would do something like this. He has no idea and they quickly shift to
talking about Steph's little brother. Max slips into a corner and stares at
June 18, 2008
meets with Paul at the docks. Paul is still livid about John having goons
pick him up. Phillip coldly tells him that he already knows about the
threats. Paul realizes that Phillip has been keeping an eye on him and would
readily leave him to die. Paul is desperate for help, "We're in a mess
here!" he says. Philly slaps him, accusing Paul's creativeness of ruining
everything. As Phillip pushes Paul around, Hollingsworth explodes. He was so
sick of John acting high and mighty and pushing him around, he needed to
bring him down and make him feel like dirt. Phillip tells him he's been
stupid. "You made a mistake Paul and now you are going to have to suffer the
consequences on your own," he states. Paul begs for a chance to fix things.
He even gets down on his knees. The fire he set burnt all of Philly's good
will; he advises him to leave town immediately and strides off.
the DiMera mansion, John hands Ava a scotch. He doesn't like the mess he's
in with Hollingsworth. They toast to their friendship. The moment is
interrupted when EJ storms in shouting for Lucas. John asks for some
privacy. EJ thuds around, pouring a drink and shouting. He informs them that
Lucas is in and he is out; Sami has asked him to move away. "I'm only her
husband... I don't have any rights I suppose," he complains before droning
about how he has the right to live with his own uncle and Sami is so
infuriating he wants to "ring her bloody neck". Lucas walks in at that
point. He knows exactly how EJ feels. EJ doubts that and tells Lucas that
he'll be the one moving out, not him. "EJ stays... if he wants to," John
says. Nicole hurries in asking to speak with Ava alone. Ava agrees, telling
John she'll call him later to hook up. The women run off and John excuses
himself, telling the boys that if they break anything, they're paying for it
and they better not wake up the babies.
together, EJ wonders why he got Lucas out of prison in the first place. So
does Lucas. He begins analysing EJ and admits that he can't get over some of
the things Sami's done and he can't get her the life she wants. He tells
Elvis that Sami is confused about her feelings for him. EJ wonders why he
would be telling him this. Lucas throws some platitude in his face. EJ warns
him that he isn't going anywhere. As he walks away, Lucas smirks.
and Hope meet up at the pub. Hope fills her friend in on John's problems,
but more significantly, she thinks that John seems to have become more
accessible than he was. Maybe now would be a good time for Marlena to try
and get through to him? Marlena doesn't think he wants her in his life.
"He's lost... he needs you now more than ever," Hope says. Marlena is
skeptical. Hope wonders if she thinks John is guilty or not. Marlena doesn't
know. Hope worries about the war between the DiMera and the Kiriakis
families heating up. Ava and Nicole walk in. Ava spots John's two former
flames. She isn't crazy about shrinks or cops but decides to say hello. Hope
isn't happy to see her. Marlena is friendlier, at least superficially since
she knows that Ava is dating John. "You know nothing about what we have
together," Marlena breaks after some forced pleasantries. She asks her to
stay and drone but Ava thinks making nice is a mistake. Hope accuses Vitali
of just baiting them. Ava walks off. Marlena goes back to talking about John
to her friend. Hope repeats her urge to reach out to John again. Marlena
agrees to try a final time. John walks in at that moment. Hope excuses
down with Nicole across the room, Ava asks her what the problem is. "My
past, once again, has come back to haunt me," Nicole quivers. When she was
young and stupid, she made a huge mistake with someone and now he's back.
"Did he hurt you?" Ava asks, concerned. Nicole feels like she's the only
woman who has ever been victimized by a man. Nicole cuts it short and wants
to go home. Ava offers her the use of her extensive resources if she needs
them. "We're friends right?" she says. They are, Nicole agrees, promising to
call her later and hurrying away.
walks over to the bar and stands by John. "Sorry Blondie my dance card's
full," he says. She asks him to supper. A week ago he would have jumped on
the invitation, but he's tired of grovelling and being compared to someone
who doesn't exist. She offers to stop doing that. He doubts she's capable of
that. She understands his frustration, "I'm not frustrated anymore. I moved
on. Do the same," he advises, walking away and taking Ava's arm. Marlena
watches as they leave.
goes down to the docks to meet with her father. The place creeps her out. He
comes out of the shadows and explains that they couldn't meet in public. "I
don't have a lot of time but I wasn't going to leave without saying
goodbye," he explains. She's shocked. He can't stay, he says. She whimpers
and hugs him. After he leaves, Phillip arrives. She cries and tells him that
her father has left town. He puts his arms around her to comfort her. She
cries on his shoulder. He tells her not to cry for a man like her father.
She jumps back, defending him and his stupid choices. She cries again and
puts her arms around him, begging him to protect her and her father. "I
can't make any promises," he says. She's sure that he has a good heart and
cares about her; he's the only person she trusts. "I need you," she cries,
tracks Max down in his room. She doesn't know why he's being so defensive.
He defends his defensiveness. She has some questions about Dean Robbins:
"Are you and the Dean enemies?" She needs the truth unless he doesn't love
her enough to trust her with it. It's not about trust, he insists. She
continues to prod and he explodes, refusing to have a meltdown so she can
comfort him, refusing to break down and explain. He apologizes a moment
later. She chokes on her tears: She just wants to be part of his life. She's
the most important part of his life,
explains before suddenly admitting that he broke into the Dean's room. He
can't say any more. She tries to empathize, but he's ready to leave: He
still has business with the Dean. She wants to help. He rejects her offer.
goes to see Dean Trent Robbins in his room at the Salem Inn. The Dean he
doesn't want to get into a debate with "a wannabe science geek". Max plows
in. Robbins threatens to call security and suggests that if Max wants to
trash him and his theories, he can start a blog. Max tells him that he's
going down and drops a photo on the Dean's table while his back is turned.
Robbins repeats that he should leave. Max picks up the picture and asks him
who the girl is. The Dean blows up and yells at him to get out. Stephanie
arrives outside and begins thumping on the door, calling Max's name. Robbins
tells Max to open the door and let her in. "Did you say his last name was
Brady?" Robbins asks her as she comes in. She did. He tells them to leave
and threatens to call the cops. Max doesn't think Trent will call, not when
he knows what Max knows. Robbins plays dumb. Max refuses to leave until the
truth comes out. "How did you know?" Trent asks. Max has been following his
tracks for some time and demands that he come clean and tell Stephanie who
he really is.
returns to the Kiriakis mansion and orders some champagne. EJ walks in to
see her and it's not about business. The suspense is killing her. He wants
someone to talk to. Samantha has kicked him out. She's sorry to hear that,
she says. He doubts that since she's grinning from ear to ear. She admits
it; the whole situation was "a tall glass of wrong". He tells her that Uncle
John wants him to stay so he's sticking around the mansion. Nicole's
confused and guesses that Sami has hurt EJ's feelings. He must have come to
her for a little distraction. She could use some of that herself. They have
the house to themselves for the night, she explains, "I wonder what we can
do..." he smiles. They start to make out.
June 19, 2008
You're a Sick Little Puppy
tells EJ that they're all alone in the mansion. He'd like to take advantage
of that. They kiss. She gets inspired and wants to do it in Victor's room
just to spite him. "You're a sick little puppy aren't you?" he sighs. He
can't afford to waste energy going up the stairs and wants to do it on the
couch. After she gets his shirt off, she stops him. He wants to move it
upstairs, but she's having second thoughts. He starts to stutter and flutter
his eyelids. She explains that they aren't having sex. He can't understand.
She doesn't seem interested in just being distracted. He accuses her of
acting hostile. She asks him to go home to Sami. "I'm not going there," he
says. She reminds him that he still loves Sami and she doesn't appreciate
being treated like a tramp. After he leaves, she's left alone to ruminate on
her relationships. Victor arrives, surprised that she's just sitting there
instead of robbing the house. She asks about Kate. Victor tells her that his
other ex is improving and then says he's happy that their nightmare marriage
is finally over. He offers to toast their mutual liberation. Looking around
the room to the numerous glasses, he begins accusing "the woman that I
loathe" of being rejected by EJ. He asks her why she self-destructively goes
after married men: Does she want to suffer? They bark at each other. She
tells him that she just wants cold hard cash, but that's not really what she
wants, "Not at all," she admits.
goes to the pub and orders a malt. Tony walks in and pats him on the back
and begins beaming about his wedding as he orders a martini. He talks about
how lucky he feels with Anna. Tony toasts to EJ finding happiness... soon,
despite his gloomy demeanor. Tony doesn't know how his fabulous little
brother can be such a "flop" when it comes to love. EJ says that he would
fight for Sami but she doesn't know what she wants. Tony reminds him that
his involvement with Sami and his having a child with her is really about
his relationship with his father. Giving Sami up would be desecrating
Stefano's memory. Is he ready to do that? Tony finds it bizarre, but EJ can
see what he's saying. He's sure there isn't much logic in his love for
Samantha. It's not the logic that Tony worries about, it's the need that
arrives at the DiMera mansion to collect the rest of her things. He asks her
to stay and hear him out. "My behavior at the pub was wrong," he apologizes.
She shouldn't have asked him out, she says. He turned her down because she
had hurt him and he wanted to hurt her back; it was childish. Was Ava part
of this plan? She probes. Ava's a friend, he clarifies, and he doesn't have
many. Marlena never meant to hurt him. John understands and admits that he's
been callous to her. She's stunned but accepts his apology; it's touching.
He insists on making it up to her. She's not sure; she thought he was moving
on. He's not and there's nothing between he and Ava he repeats. She doubts
it and warns him to be careful with Ava. "You don't want someone who is
obsessed with you," she advises. He asks Blondie for dinner, whatever she
wants: French, Italian or Inuit. "Surprise me," she says. His phone rings
and he walks out to take it. He's informed that Hollingsworth is leaving
town. "Oh Paul... you're not going anywhere," John says. Marlena approaches
as he gets off the phone. She asks him about the call, he fobs it off as
business and toasts with her to new beginnings. She tells him how kind his
apology was. He's become comfortable with her and she looks beautiful
tonight. She giggles. They toast to second chances. He slips away and calls
his people, telling them to find Paul and "handle it".
and Morgan are kissing on the pier. He tries to stop, saying that it isn't
right. Chloe arrives and spots them from a distance. She hurries over to
start laying into them. Philly tells her not to make a scene. "This isn't a
scene. This is a prologue. I'm just warming up!" she threatens. Phillip
doesn't think this is the time to talk about this. Morgan says the kiss was
unplanned. "Do you think I'm stupid?" Chloe asks, rather rhetorically,
accusing Morgan of being after Philly since she first laid eyes on him.
Morgan excuses herself but Chloe won't let her leave without warning her
about Phillip's involvement with her father. Morgan defends Philly and
thanks him before walking away. Chloe knows that she and Phillip weren't
supposed to have feelings for each other, but she's developed them. He cares
about her too, he admits. She doesn't think the feelings are exactly mutual
though. "You're the only one I want," he swears. She thinks he's just
telling her what she wants to hear. As he leans in to kiss her, a phone call
interrupts. He steps aside. "Just make sure he keeps his mouth shut. Do not
let him talk," he growls into the phone. He turns back to Chloe and suggests
that they go back to her place to talk. Chloe doubts he just wants to talk
but agrees anyway.
meets her father in the night. She cries as he says goodbye. He makes her
promise to stay away from Phillip. After he hugs her and leaves, she walks
over to the pub and runs into Tony. He catches up with her and asks her to
come back and intern with him again. She thanks him and he walks away.
Meanwhile, we see Paul's limp body rolled off the pier and into the water.
Dean Robbins room at the Salem Inn, Max won't back down. He wants the Dean
to admit the truth: He's his father. Steph asks if it can be true. The Dean
confirms and asks them to leave so he can "process this information". Max
needs to process too and he needs his father's help. Robbins admits that he
came to see him when he was little and learned that he had been adopted. He
watched to see what kind of life the Brady's were giving him. Max thinks he
abandoned him without caring. Robbins says no. Max continues to lash out at
him for abandoning him. Robbins reminds him that he's had a good life with
the Brady's and he doesn't have to justify himself to Max. "The hell you
don't!" Max barks. "The past is just the past," the Dean says. Max threatens
to reveal his past to the university. He accuses him of being abusive to his
mother and demands to know what happened to her. Max doesn't feel any love
for his father, in fact, seeing him, he only feels hate. Robbins asks him
how much it will take to keep him quiet. Max is startled and offended by the
offer of a bribe. This is making Steph sick. The Dean offers to help him out
financially if this is kept out of the public record. Stephanie starts
telling him how brilliant Max is, but Max doesn't care: He doesn't want to
be anything like his biological father because his father, Shawn, was great
man. He offers to work something out with Robbins. If he'll tell him about
the girl in the picture, he'll consider his offer. "I'm completely lost,"
Robbins says. Max accuses him of lying. He demands to know if the girl is
his sister. "You have no idea who you're dealing with," Robbins sneers.
"Actually I do," Max claims. The Dean doesn't see how he can move forward if
he keeps looking at the past. He suggests that Max calm down and they talk
tomorrow. Max and Steph leave.

Girls Mature Faster Than Guys
walks into the pub and orders some "grilled liver smothered in assorted fruits".
He sits down with Marlena and tells her he wishes she'd stayed the night. Maybe
she can even move back in, he offers, claiming that he's had Rolf protect her
old room behind a velvet rope. Marlena's not ready. She wants to talk about Ava.
Before she "goes shrink" on him, he wants to talk about Phillip. "The kid thinks
he can win but he's in for a big surprise," he intones.
Kiriakis mansion, Phillip wakes up beside Chloe. She rolls over. "So much for
just talking last night," she smiles. He ran out of things to say. They start
back at it again. Afterwards, she falls asleep and he slips from bed to dress.
She opens her eyes and asks for an encore. He offers breakfast in bed. He's
interrupted when John calls and demands to meet him at the Brady Pub. Phillip
turns and tells Chloe they're going to the pub for breakfast. She rolls her
the pub, Stephanie can't believe what a jerk Max's father Trent is. He knows.
She tells him he's been a jerk as well and then reminds him that she loves him
and will be there for him. Max admits that he found out Trent was his father
years ago but he's glad that he abandoned him or he would never have met mom and
pop. Steph encourages him to tell his mom about this. He's reluctant, but she's
sure Caroline will be supportive. As she walks off, Caroline walks in and asks
her son what's on his mind. He avoids it, but she's sick of him moping around
and needs an answer. Nick interrupts, handing Max a CD. He's about to leave when
Caroline asks him to stay and talk some sense into her son. Max goes up to his
room and talks to himself until Nick interrupts. He encourages him to register
for summer school. Max isn't interested; the only skill he wants is pouring
beer. Nick reminds him that Max used to be "the man" but he's lost whatever
confidence he once had.
the gym, Chelsea is ranting about magazine models to Morgan. The two women start
mocking the women who wear lipstick to the gym. Morgan spots Crystal, her state
sorority rep. They rush over and chat about the breast cancer awareness walk.
After Crystal walks away, Morgan grimaces and asks her friend if she wants to
help distract her tonight. Chelsea has a date. Morgan asks who the lucky hottie
is. "It's Daniel!" Chelsea squeaks before gushing about what the date could be
like. Morgan asks her if she would "you know" on the first date. Chelsea thinks
Dr. Dan is too much of a gent, but she feels such a connection to him... Morgan
reminds her of how he's treated her in the past. Chelsea gets angry and stomps
away. Morgan follows her and they sit down to a drink. Morgan worries and tells
her to be careful, bringing up the age thing. "Girls mature faster than guys,"
Chelsea argues. Morgan reminds her that this isn't high school and Daniel is old
enough to be her... Chelsea is defiant and wants to talk about her wardrobe.
Stephanie arrives and sadly slumps down. At first, she refuses to say anything
and then proceeds to tell them about Max and his secrets. Daniel calls Chelsea
and doesn't leave a message. Chelsea starts to wonder if she should call back.
Stephanie dials the phone for her. He instantly picks up and asks her if they're
still on, or is she having second thoughts? She's not. They end the call and
Chelsea perkily sits down. Steph asks her what she'll wear. Morgan starts to
fret again. The girls go back to working out and wonder what their fathers would
say about them dating older men. Morgan is upset; her father just walked out on
her. She's sure he'll be back though...
and Chloe arrive at the pub. He asks John what this is all about. John says
their dispute has gotten out of hand but he has a fast and easy solution: "Step
down. Accept defeat." Phillip laughs at this and is ready to walk away. John
tells him he has until the end of the day. Phillip won't accept any ultimatums.
"What world are you living in John. You're the criminal," he growls. He tells
Chloe to get some breakfast while he heads to the gym to work off some steam.
Marlena asks John why Phillip didn't accept the offer. "Because he's a fool,"
hospital, Daniel calls Maggie to reserve a table at Chez Rouge before going in
to check on Kate. She tells him to get out. He doesn't. Meanwhile, Lexi is
pulling Theo around the corridors. She tries chatting but he has a grim
expression. She sends him off with Lindsay but he soon runs back and jumps into
Abe's arms. Abe takes the kid to the cafeteria while Lindsay tells Lexi that she
has the perfect family. "Thanks," she sighs. Suddenly, she can hear Kate
shouting at Daniel. She runs in to see what's happening. Jonas backs out. "Is
there something you wanna tell me?" Lexi asks Kate. She's not going to get much
of an answer though: Kate's uncomfortable with Daniel - end of story. Theo
rushes in with Abe behind. The kid starts shaking Kate's hand until Abe takes
him back out to the hall. Lexi's distracted. Kate asks what's wrong. Theo is
getting some tests today; they hope it's nothing serious.
and Marlena go back to the mansion. She realizes that they never finished their
conversation about Ava. Marlena decides to lay things out: He doesn't want to be
the old John and she's not sure she can accept the new one so, maybe, they
should file for divorce. She doesn't want a divorce, but she's giving him
permission to see other women. John's startled at the thought. She tells him to
try things out and see how it works. If he comes back to her, that's fine and if
he doesn't, they can end it.
runs into Daniel at the gym. Daniel starts complaining about how difficult Kate
is. Women are too complicated for him; they ruin everything like some
"mind-altering drug". It's scary for him and he can't figure out when it's just
the thrill of something new or the real deal. Phillip flashes to thoughts of
Morgan. He wishes he knew when it was real. They make various lewd remarks about
the women in the gym and Phillip tells him to go for treadmill Tina. Daniel
already has a crazy thing for someone else. He feels cautions about it, worried
that he'll wipe out", though that's not normally his style. Phillip knows he's
talking about Chelsea and tells him to go for it. They worry about what Kate
will say to them and try telling themselves it doesn't matter.
Nicole, guessing that she is on her way to the pub for a drink. "What the hell
do you want from me?" she barks. She turns around and he suddenly appears,
telling her that their reunion is fate. "I let you go once. I'm not going to
make that mistake again," he says, taking her head in his hands. She begs him
not to do this. There's nothing for them to go back to, she insists while
wondering how he could finagle a university job. He's worried that someone in
town knows him more than he'd like. He lies and tells her it's just one of his
grad students and he's been threatening him. "Sounds like my kind of guy," she
sorority sisters go over to the pub. Morgan complains about her cramps.
Stephanie gives her some Midol and Morgan pops some before she spots Chloe. "I
can't believe that harlot is here!" she grumps. Stephanie starts looking around
for Max. When she finds him, she encourages him once again to tell his mother
the truth. He walks over to Caroline and flatly tells her that he found out who
his biological father is. She gives him a hug and thanks him for telling her.
Meanwhile, Chloe strides over to Morgan and offers to buy her a cup of coffee.
She warns her that Phillip has a pattern of seducing young girls to boost his
ego. "You must really feel threatened by me and, you know what? You should,"
Morgan shoots at her before walking away.
