Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown.
the pub, Sami accuses Nicole of using her unfortunate dog to try and get EJ into
bed. Refusing to stand by and let that happen, she yanks EJ into a kiss.
Everyone has a shocked expression at this. "I have some breath spray and it's
anti-bacterial," Nicole offers. Sami wonders what she was thinking. EJ thinks
she was just reacting. "No no!" she screams before running away. She runs into
the pub and begs her grandmother for some water or rubbing alcohol. Caroline
laughs and wonders why she looks like she's on the verge of a nervous breakdown.
"I need to talk to Lucas," Sami panics, pulling out her phone. She makes the
call but he refuses to talk to her and she starts to cry. Caroline suggests that
he may just feel too guilty for ruining their lives. Sami thinks he needs to get
over it so they can see each other and start moving on.
Nicole for helping him with Sami. She's livid; she was actually upset about her
dog, Sami just happened along. EJ starts to probe her about Sami's reaction:
Does she seem genuinely jealous? "The way she threw herself at me was
wonderful!" he oozes. Nicole cringes. Sami's bad news, she thinks, and she'll do
anything to get what she wants. At least Nicole doesn't pretend to be good. EJ
still wants Sami. "If you're that stupid, maybe you shouldn't be my lawyer," she
bites before lambasting his twisted relationship with Sami. Why does she care so
much about it? EJ wonders. She cares about him... as his lawyer; she doesn't
need him getting googly-eyed. He keeps his personal and business lives separate
and suggests that she is jealous and doesn't want Sami happy. She doesn't, but
she's more worried about Pookie right now. He begins analyzing her needy
relationship with her dog and she calls his verdict on her emotional health
"manure" before stomping away.
the middle of the night, Philip drinks a glass of milk and paces around the
mansion. Henderson comes in with a package and offers him something to eat.
Philip's not hungry. He opens the package and remembers his confrontations with
John over the docks. The package contains the stolen disc. He promptly puts it
in his computer and discovers that the disc is encrypted and he can't read it.
Immediately, he calls the computer department. Before things can get anywhere,
Chloe announces her presence. He jumps up. "Where's Brady?" he asks. She looks
uncomfortable at this. "I came back alone," she says, explaining that Brady is
in rehab and making progress. He wasn't thrilled to see her though and still
blames her for his addictions. Philip wonders why she came back; why didn't she
stay to work things out? Brady wants a divorce, she says. "There's one person to
blame for our marriage ending and you and I both know what that is," she states.
He doesn't think she can blame Victor for everything. She rants about what
Victor has done to her. Philly wonders what other reasons she's had for coming
back. He suggests she's come back to get revenge on Victor by using him. What
they had was a long time ago, she reminds him. He understands, but she's back
and in the game. "I'm good at the game and love to play it," he smiles. She
thinks he's conceited and insists that she just wants a friend. He nods his head
and smiles deviously. He offers her a room in the mansion. Reluctantly, she
agrees and tells him that he's right about the best way to get revenge on
Victor. After ripping his shirt open, she starts kissing him. "I like being
friends with you," he smirks. Before she can start rubbing his abs, they're
interrupted by Nicole: "Oh please God! Let me be hallucinating!"
walks into the pub and watches Sami crying to her grandmother about Lucas
refusing to see her. None of what Samantha Jean says makes sense to her
grandmother. Sami has no idea what's going on anymore. EJ creeps over and
whispers: "How can I help?" Caroline starts telling EJ about her problems, much
to Sami's consternation. "She's desperate to hold onto what she used to have,"
EJ smirks. She's not desperate; she still has true love with Lucas, she insists,
something EJ will never know anything about. She stomps away. He explains to
Caroline that Sami caught him comforting Nicole and flipped out. She reminds him
that Sami still loves Lucas and he's only part of her life because Lucas can't
be. "Tell me something I don't know," he admits grimly.
goes back to the mansion and thanks Rolf for looking after the twins. He's
exhausted and covered in baby vomit. He asks her for a drink and reminds her
that rocking babies is not in his job description. Sami tells him that she's
misjudged him; she used to think he was a creep. He had to be that way to work
for Stefano, he explains before bringing up her worried expression. "What
happened to freak you out?" he queries. She doesn't want to talk about it. "What
do you think of EJ?" she asks. Rolf thinks he's finally becoming his own person,
for good or bad. What does Sami think? "He's trying," she sighs. "Trying to be a
better person or trying your patience?" he jokes. Rolf's tired and goes to bed,
but before he can get away, she asks him if he thinks John and Marlena will get
back together. Rolf thinks there's as much chance of them reuniting as there is
of her forgetting about Lucas and falling in love with EJ. As he walks out, EJ
walks in and Sami jumps. She tells him he can check on the twins and walks off.
follows Daniel into the steam room to confront him about his wife. "Hands off,
seriously," he warns. She assumes that they could have had something if he
didn't have "the dark past thing" hanging over him. He tells her she'll have one
too when she gets older. She accuses him of using his past to let her down
gently. As she prods him, he tells her to bail. She insists there is something
between them and he shouldn't resist. "You think what happened to your wife will
happen to me," she explains to him. As she gets wet from the steam, he tells her
he's uncomfortable and she should leave. They keep arguing and she taunts him
for his fears. He refuses to make the same mistake twice. She starts lashing out
at him, accusing him of being a coward. "I'm not going to change who I am," he
says. He's not good boyfriend material, he suggests, before he starts to talk in
circles. She begins kissing him and caressing his shoulders. He finally admits
that he feels something; that's the problem.
May 13, 2008
Before I do Something Stupid
hurries down to the docks. Max is clearly uncomfortable having her there. She
needs to know what he really did to Nick's grant proposal. He tries avoiding
this, but finally says that he was just fixing the financial accounting etc..
Stephanie doesn't believe him and doesn't understand why he won't trust her
enough to tell her what he's really up to: None of this makes sense. He tries to
change the subject and kiss her but she pushes him away. She wants the truth,
not a distraction. He says he's given her the truth already. She doesn't believe
him and walks away. Max sighs and remembers bringing beer to his father's grave
and telling him that Nick makes mistakes and needs guidance. He told his father
that he was cool with running the pub, but he still wants something else,
At the pub,
Nick is busy at work when a student, Alicia, starts badgering him with
questions. Agitated, he brushes her off. Moments later, he walks over to her
table and apologizes. He explains that he is just under a lot of pressure. They
begin talking about his grant and how worried he is about his deadline. With a
confused grimace, she explains that it was already delivered to the
administration building. He's confused by this. She explains that she works in
the Dean's office, sorting his mail, and Nick's stuff arrived already.
walks into the pub for a meeting with EJ. He reminds Mr. Wells about their past
and that it's not easily forgotten. EJ starts to ask about Steve's past
"interesting couple of weeks" as Ava's prisoner, but Steve just wants to get
down to business. After settling some details, EJ offers him a handshake but
Steve still doesn't trust him. EJ promises him that he won't regret getting into
business with him. Steve looks around nervously. When EJ offers to buy him
breakfast, Steve ignores him and glares around strangely as a mysterious man
looms outside the pub door. "Are you okay?" EJ asks. Stephanie walks in and asks
her papa what he's doing there. They start talking about Kayla and the
wanders over to Nick and asks him how he's doing. He says that he's okay, but
he's clearly not. When she sits down, they talk about Chelsea; he still doesn't
know why they broke up. When she inquires about his proposal, he explains how it
suddenly appeared in the Dean's office. Before he can say anymore, Max arrives
and jumps into the conversation. He plays dumb as Nick talks about what a
disaster his work was and how he can't understand why someone would send it in
rather than simply give it back to him. Stephanie tries to come clean but Max
cuts her off, telling Nick that they looked, but couldn't find it. After he
walks away, Stephanie burbles some condolences about Chelsea and walks away.
Nick flashes back to his strained arguments with Max over the grant but he still
can't understand his friend's behavior. Meanwhile, Stephanie corners Max and
tells him that she can't lie to Nick anymore. Immediately, she hurries back to
Nick's table and finally comes clean with him. "You and I need to talk," Nick
announces to Max who promptly explains that he was only trying to help. Nick
blows up at him and storms away, leaving Stephanie to demand some answers. When
she doesn't get any, she leaves as well.
the station, Roman hands Bo a new file when Sami rushes in panicking. She tells
them that Lucas has refused to talk to her. That's nothing new, Roman points
out. Sami insists that she needs to talk to him right away, "Before I do
something stupid," she explains. She thinks of kissing EJ and tells Roman how
worried she is about Lucas. He'll talk to Mr. Roberts/Horton, but can't promise
anything; if Lucas still refuses to see her, there's nothing anyone can do about
it. Later, after Roman has talked to Lucas, he tells Sami not to get her hopes
up. Lucas still refuses to talk to her, but he may call. Sami gets her hopes up
so Roman tries to dampen them. He thinks that she left a lot of things unsettled
with Lucas and she easily owns up to this. A cop walks in with an email for her
from Lucas. She's surprised at the quick and rather impersonal reply. The men
leave her alone to read it. The note tells her to forget about him and move on
with her life. She starts to cry.
Hope serves Kayla some tea and offers to take her to her doctor's appointment
today. Kayla is sure that Steve put her up to this, since he's still worried
about the Vitali clan. Although Kayla insists that she can look after herself,
Hope thinks she chould could still use someone watching her back. Even if Ava's
behavior was all thanks to her being drugged, she is still a Vitali and
dangerous. She encourages Kayla just to focus on her baby and they leave for her
the hospital, Angelo tracks down Ava in the hallway to get an update on her
health. She's doing well and wants to start living in the present again. She
tells Angelo that Nussbaum must have been drugging her to keep her as his
patient and bleed her father for all he was worth. Angelo shrugs. Hope and Kayla
walk in. They have an awkward moment with their former captor before Ava thanks
Kayla for figuring out that she was on the wrong medication. Hope and Kayla walk
away. "You don't have to thank her," Angelo groans. He starts to blame
everything on Patch and says that her father thinks he's to blame for everything
too. "What else do you know Angelo?" she asks. He starts to stutter as she
interrogates him but he continues to assert that her father is doing nothing
against Patch and his family. They go over to the pub. She notices Stephanie and
tells Angelo how pretty she is. "She's not as pretty as you twinkle toes," he
smirks. They sit down and she asks him how he knew she had an appointment today.
They dance around it until she demands to know why he's keeping tabs on her.
He's reluctant and she threatens to walk away. Grabbing her hand, he tells her
that she's right: Her father wanted him to keep her busy today because he didn't
want to risk her getting in the way of what he had planned.
appointment, Kayla and Hope return to her place. Kayla's agitated and doesn't
want to follow the doctor's orders to go back to bed. Hope tells her that her
only job right now is to worry about her baby and take care of her. When Hope
leaves to get some pie, Kayla starts to get a twinge. Meanwhile, Patch walks
down to the docks while the man who has been following him all day clings to the
shadows and prepares a sniper rifle. Patch starts to play harmonica and stays
behind some barrels. Clearly aware of the threat, he slips out of sight and
calls Bo with some news about his dangerous situation.
goes home to the mansion to get caught up on some work. Sami stumbles in. "Are
you alright?" he asks. She says she's fine. "It doesn't look that way," he
suggests. She snipes at him and says she hasn't slept well. "Because of what
happened between the two of us?" he asks. Nothing happened, she insists. He asks
if he can help out. She asks him to drop Nicole. He won't. She seems very sad,
he observes, but she refuses to talk about that as well. When he offers her a
hug, she cringes. She swallows some booze and cries, avoiding him and trying to
leave. As she runs to the door, his phone starts to ring. After a delay, he
picks it up: It's Nicole. Sami stays in the doorway and listens in.
May 14, 2008
The Concept of us is Just not Happening.
arrives at the mansion but, when she sees Chloe and Philip eating dinner,
she loses her appetite. She starts sniping at Chloe and her lackluster opera
career. It doesn't take long before the 's' word starts coming out. Philip
watches as Nicole lays into Chloe over Brady and lambastes him for jumping
all over his nephew's lady, "Chloe Lame". He doesn't remember when she
joined the morality police and brings up her various infidelities to Victor.
She admits to these and doesn't see why she should even care about this when
Pookie is in the hospital. She's just trying to help Philly. "Despite what
you think, I really do care about you," she admits. He smirks. She still has
feelings, she begins, but her phone starts barking (Pookie's bark is her
ringtone) before she can finish. It's EJ setting up a meeting with her. She
leaves "the kids" behind. He tells Chloe not to let Nicole get to her. She
admits that Nicole is actually right and they shouldn't be fooling around.
Chloe has trouble letting Brady go, even if she has Philly as a distraction.
He reminds her of how much she wants to annoy his father and tells her to
stop thinking so much. She still doesn't think it's right for them to hook
up. They start kissing. He tells her to admit to what she wants: She really
came back to Salem for him. "No," she says, moving away. "Call me what you
want, but you can't deny what's between us," he says. She's lost her
appetite and leaves the dining room. He shrugs and pulls out John's memory
the mansion, Sami finds EJ in his exercise outfit, leaving for the gym.
After he walks out, Sami asks her mother to look after the twins while she
trudges off to the gym. Marlena wanders into John's office while he
continues to search for who broke into his home. She's put out some feelers
herself. "I'm helping," she says perkily. He's not that impressed. Daniel
walks in and John calls him the "Big Kahuna" and begins talking about his
surfing career. John soon drifts out of the conversation and Daniel tells
Marlena he needs some personal advice. Marlena asks John to step out. He
refuses, reminding her that they were in the middle of something. "Please?"
she asks. "Make it quick," he barks before leaving. Daniel sits down with
Marlena and she begins to probe. He tells her how he's been traveling the
world looking for an adrenaline rush to get over his loss and stay detached,
but he doesn't know if he can avoid it anymore. "Are you saying that you're
getting involved with patient?" she asks. He needs her to tell him how to
fall out of love and move on. Marlena doesn't know how to help him. John
eavesdrops as they talk. Daniel wants a guarantee, but Marlena doesn't think
there are any. She tells him to imagine his wife. He closes his eyes but
can't get the vibe. He tries again and imagines his wife telling him that he
should allow himself to love someone. "That's very good advice," Marlena
says. He doesn't want any more questions, just some more solid advice. His
problem is that he doesn't know what he wants, she explains. He has
intuition in the operating room, but he would rather surf than think about
his personal problems. She thinks he knows what he wants, he's just afraid
of the risk and needs someone to tell him it's okay to go ahead. "Damn...
you're good," he smiles. She cautions him to go slowly so that he's
comfortable and it feels right.
After Marlena walks Daniel out, John steps out of the
shadows. She asks him why he was eavesdropping. It's his house, he'll do
what he pleases, he asserts. They return to the topic of his missing disc.
She says that she's gotten Roman involved in the search. He doesn't want her
involved. "That's too bad because I love you very much," she says. He smokes
follows EJ to the gym and spies on him, knocking over protein supplements
while he helps a woman exercise. As she starts to exercise, the man next to
her, Chris, starts calling her a cutie before noticing EJ. "that tall drink
of water", and the woman who seems to be into him. It's Nicole. She and EJ
wander over and taunt her. "Instead of doing laps, let's work out a few
kinks in the steam room," Nicole suggests. She takes him away and Sami asks
Chris to follow them into the steam room to eavesdrop. He high fives her and
jogs off. EJ and Nicole lock themselves in the steam room and start to make
out as Chris runs down the hall. He listens at the door and gasps. He runs
back out to Sami and tells her that he heard a lot of moans. "It sound like
he was really good," he comments. Sami grumbles. She runs down the hall to
the steam room but stops herself from barging in. Inside, EJ stops making
out with Nicole. "You're a beautiful woman but I love Samantha," he reminds
her. "Who said anything about love," she says, pulling him into more kisses.
Kate takes Chelsea out for dinner at the pub. Chelsea is
feeling better now that people have stopped asking her how she feels. Kate
wonders how she is doing emotionally. Chelsea wants some advice: How do I
make a guy realize that he loves me? "I have a feeling that you're not
talking about Nick," Kate assumes. Chelsea wants a relationship with Daniel:
He's hot and smart and she's dumped Nick. Unfortunately, Daniel has problems
and she explains what happened with his wife. Kate tells her that a
relationship with Daniel isn't what she needs, she should actually get as
far away from him as she can. That doesn't sound like good advice to
Chelsea. Kate is sure that Chelsea would always take a backseat to his dead
wife. Chelsea begins mocking Kate for her past and brings up Martino, who
suddenly walks in. Kate assures her that Martino wasn't a hood when she was
with him. "I have known enough men with issues that prevented them from
being in a relationship," she explains. Daniel has to deal with what
happened or he will never be ready to move on. Daniel drifts in and sits at
the bar. Kate repeats that she'll never be happy running after Daniel. After
she leaves, he sits down with Chelsea. He tells her that, "The concept of us
is just not happening right now." That's what Kate told Chelsea too, but she
thinks that she is wrong. She won't argue and play games though. "I hope you
figure all your stuff out," she says. When he does, he can call her. She
the pub, Ava starts to demand some answers from Angelo. "Your father wanted
you out of the way today so he and some of the fellows could take care of
Patch," Angelo confesses. She wonders why he's admitted to this. He's sick
of being treated like a puppet and he's sick of how her father has been
treating her. "Daddy's days of controlling me are over," she says. Martino
arrives and sits down. She asks him what he is going to do to Patch. He
plays ignorant. "You better call it off daddy or you will be sorry," she
Hope and Kayla are drinking tea when Bo calls. He tells
her that Steve is in trouble but she can't tell Kayla about it. Hope leaves
her friend behind and rushes away. At the docks, Steve plays the harmonica
while a sniper takes aim at his head. Before the sniper can take his shot,
Bo interrupts him, levelling a gun at his head. As he reads the guy his
rights, Hope searches him and finds something. They hurry over to the pub
and arrest Martino for murder and attempted murder. Meanwhile, Kayla gets
bored waiting around and decides to call Steve. When she stands up, she has
a spasm before collapsing on the couch. "Oh God! This is it!" she screams,
getting on the phone for an ambulance: She's gone into labor.
May 15, 2008
Pumph-pumph for Master Elvis?
storms home ranting loudly about EJ "and the slut" when Rolf runs out and
calms her, reminding her that the "kleine kinder" are sleeping. She flops on
the couch, annoyed that she is stuck with an arrogant ass. "I assume you are
referring to master Elvis?" Rolf asks. Yes, she is. She jumps up and starts
to drink, claiming that EJ is not capable of changing, just of driving her
insane. Rolf wonders if there is a "pumph-pumph" and a "pitter-patter" in
her heart for EJ. She assures him no such sounds are going on. Rolf
understands, he never had much use for emotions. The only useful one is
fear; the only way to avoid a pitiable death. Sami decides to take his
advice and cultivate her sense of fear. Rolf stops her and reminds her how
inspirational love can be. She wishes she could see Lucas; he would be able
to help. Rolf suggests that she may be seeing Lucas much sooner than she
thinks. He explains that he overheard EJ on the phone to the warden trying
to get Lucas out of prison. She's glad that Rolf is being so helpful. Being
helpful is his calling, Rolf claims. He'd be glad to help more, but it all
depends on what's in it for him. "I'll owe you one," she offers. He nods,
promising to collect and ducks out. She whips out her phone and calls EJ.
and Nicole are making out in the steam room at the gym. He breaks away from
her. "I can't get over the feeling I'm cheating on Samantha," he admits. She
feels humiliated, but she gets it: He and Sami have a child together. He
insists that he really loves her. "You know that Sami will never care about
you," she explains. When Lucas returns, he will vanish from the scene. EJ
doubts that will be the case for long; he has a plan. Some prisoners are
being allowed out early to take part in a sort of home prison program. The
only way to stop Lucas from playing the poor hero, is to get him back out
and under scrutiny. The sooner EJ can remind Sami that he is actually the
victim here, the sooner he can win her over. Later, left alone, Nicole
wanders around the health club talking to herself. "Time to cozy up to an
old friend," she decides, unscrewing her flask and taking a swig.
arrives at the mansion, Sami glumly mumbles at the chessboard. EJ assures
her that nothing is happening between he and Nicole; there would be nothing
to gain. Maybe a disease, she suggests before bringing up his plot to get
Lucas released. She wonders what his motive could be. He says it's only out
of the goodness of his heart; he wants her to be happy. 'That's a nice
sentiment. I wish you'd have thought of that the night Johnny was
conceived," she shoots back, trying to leave the room. He stops her. She
admits that she can't even look at their son without remembering the way he
was conceived. "I'm not proud of what I did that night. I'm deeply ashamed,"
EJ admits. It was terrible, but he never meant to hurt her. He just thought
that she loved him. "You are so egotistical!" she bursts. He wishes he could
take it all back; it was the biggest mistake of his life. He's scarred her
emotionally and she'll never get over it. He starts to apologize profusely.
She reminds him of what a "sleaze" he was afterwards. EJ can't defend
himself, though he continues to apologize, knowing that he can never
apologize enough. Since that night, everything he has done has been an
attempt to redeem himself and become a different person. In his heart he
hopes that one day she can wipe the slate clean. If he wants to be a good
father, he needs to become a role model and stop cavorting in steam rooms,
she says. He tells her that nothing happened with Nicole because he told her
that he loves her. "Fine," she agrees, he can have a clean slate. He's
surprised, but she explains that this is about their son. As she starts to
talk about how much he's changed, Nicole barges in. She tries to kiss EJ but
Sami tells her to stay away. She threatens to call the police and Nicole
tries to kiss EJ again. He resists and Sami drags Nicole out. EJ smirks; he
enjoyed watching her turf Nicole out. She becomes threatening. "What are you
going to do?" he taunts. She pulls him into a kiss. When she realizes what
she's doing, she pushes him away. "Is there a problem?" he asks. "What is
wrong with me?" she panics, running up the stairs.
tracks Max down to the docks. He apologizes for all of the mess around
Nick's grant. He wishes he'd told her the truth earlier. So does she, but
now she realizes that he was just trying to help Nick and be a good friend.
Max explains that this is not the first time that Nick has accused him of
messing with his work and he worries that they can't work through it this
time. What kills him the most about it is the look on Steph's face when she
knows that he's lied to her. It scared her and that scared him. He swears
that trust issues will never come between them again. She can't stay mad at
him and throws her arms around him. He reminds her that couples fight, it's
natural. "I hate that part," she says. He likes "this part" though and
starts kissing her. She asks him to grab some junk food and drive out to
Lookout Point with her. He has a better idea. They start a picnic on the
pier, though it's hard to focus on eating when they'd rather make out. He
tells her how lucky he feels to be with her. "I'm the lucky one. I'm the
luckiest girl in the world," she says. After they make love on a pile of
rope, she realizes that she should go home: She doesn't want her parents to
pub, Bo and Hope arrest and cuff Vitali's men. Martino smirks and Bo wonders
what's funny. Martino assures him that he has nothing on him. Bo shows him
that they found Nussbaum's wallet on the sniper and he's sure that the
bullets in the rifle will match those that killed the doctor. Martino is
unimpressed and doubts they can prove the shooter worked for him. "No, but I
can," Ava says. He tells her to shut her mouth. "You tried to kill the man
that I love," she says. Angelo soon breaks down; he's seen too much.
Watching Ava get screwed up on drugs all this time has been too much for
him: The doctor was drugging her, but only on orders from her father, he
explains. Martino insists that Angelo is lying, but Ava is sure it's true.
This is all because of what she remembered: She remembered what he did to
her mom. "You had my mother killed!" she breaks down, punching at his chest.
Chaos erupts and Martino grabs a gun, pointing it at Bo who quickly takes a
shot. In a flash, Martino is dead on the floor. Ava cries over his corpse,
"How could you do this to me?" As the body is wheeled out, Bo says that he
got off easy. Roman tells Ava that he's sorry, but reminds her that she's
out on bail and can't leave town. She's not going anywhere and
promises to look after her. He puts his arm around his cousin and walks her
out while Roman turns and asks for a rundown from Bo and Hope.
too soon!" Kayla bellows as Steve hurries into Bo and Hope's house. She
twists on the floor while he tries to comfort her and asks her if she's
called 9-1-1. The paramedics soon arrive and load her up. When they get to
the hospital, he calls Bo and Hope to tell them what's happened.
May 16, 2008
You Don't cry all the Time
the mansion, Sami thumps down the stairs and finds EJ sitting at the desk
eating and typing. Neither of them can sleep. He expects she's come down to
apologize for claiming that she didn't enjoy kissing him. She thinks he's
crazy. "Only for you," he shoots back. This makes her hungry. He offers her
a sandwich. She'd rather shoot bamboo shoots under her fingernails than kiss
him again, she says; she still has no idea why she did it. He starts to
ramble about his Latin lessons and murmurs that they will never talk about
her kissing him. She starts eating his apple and he tries to go to bed.
Before he can, she repeats her slanders against Nicole. He reminds her that
they need money and tries to leave. She starts to talk extremely fast about
plans for the twins preschool. "Maybe we should think about college too?" he
jokes. She doesn't appreciate it. Statesville Prison suddenly calls. "You
think it's about Lucas?" she asks. She's breathless as he talks on the
phone. He shakes his head and solemnly tells her that Lucas didn't make the
cut for the release program. She collapses in a chair and almost breaks into
tears. He offers to try again. "I have to accept that he's not coming back,"
she weeps before thanking him. EJ tells her he would do anything to help her
and pulls her into a hug. She cries into his chest as he fondles her hair.
She hates girls who cry all the time. "You don't cry all the time... some of
the time you're angry," he jokes. She's frustrated that she doesn't have
control over her own life. He tells her that she does; she just doesn't
control anyone else's. It's time for bed, he announces, he has tennis with
Nicole in the morning. She asks him what he sees in Nicole. It's more what
she sees in him: She thinks he's "all that". "What woman wouldn't?" she
says. "You," he reminds her. She's confused. He tries to explain but he's
tired and wants to go to bed, not play stupid word games. "I need to know
how you feel," he states: Where do they go now? She tells him to go to bed.
He demands a real answer; she keeps giving him mixed signals and he needs to
know where he really stands. She can't say she doesn't care about him and be
jealous of Nicole at the same time. If she doesn't want him to be with the
other woman, he needs a reason. "You are my husband and there is no way I'm
going to stand by and let that slut sink her claws into you," she slowly
states. "What are you gonna do about it?" he whispers. She breathes in and
is prowling the Kiriakis mansion looking for a drink when she runs into
Victor in the dining room. "I'm family Victor," she tells him when he
demands to know why she's there. She's the worst thing that's ever happened
to the family, he spits at her. She thought that was Nicole... and her dog.
Why is she forcing herself where she isn't wanted? He asks as they start to
tear into each other over Brady and the mess with the Austrian police.
Things are over between her and Brady so, "What monumental audacity brings
you back?" he demands. Philip jumps in: "I invited her." Victor wants to
talk to his son in private. Chloe just came down to get something to sleep,
she insists. Victor tells her they don't have any drugs and tells her to get

Chloe leaves. Victor accuses him of keeping secrets of his own, "Like the B
and E at John's place." Philip is surprised he knows about that and tells
him about the disc they stole. He's been monitoring the conversations over
there and he knows that there is something important on that disc. Someone
is working on the encryption and Victor is eager to find out the contents.
He tells his son that he admires the way he's handling things and wants to
give him even more responsibility. Victor is getting exhausted and now knows
that his son is willing to get his hands dirty. It makes him a little sad,
he admits; he had hoped he could stay above that. Philip only did it for the
good of the family. Victor knows and he's pleased, but he's going to be
watching things from "a little further back" from now on. Philip will still
want his advice. "Don't worry Dad, I won't let you down," he promises.
Victor tells his son how frightened he was when he was away at war. He
suggests that his son go into politics and tells him not to wait too long to
start a family. "I'm keeping my options open," Philip says. Victor walks
away for a moment while Philip looks out at the garden. When Victor returns,
he hands his son a dossier. "This is your legacy and your future," he
announces. Later, Philip sits alone when Chloe comes in. She wonders if she
should have her bags packed. He tells her that she can stay and he's in
charge of pretty much everything now. "Handsome, rich and powerful" she
summarizes. He tells her she forget "ruthless" and smirks.

too soon! We can't lose our baby," she worries. Steve tells her to breathe
and the doctor explains the tests that they're running. After spilling out a
motley of medical terminology, which Steve can't follow, she offers Kayla a
sedative. The doctor orders the neonatology team to get ready and Kayla
starts to panic again, reminding the doctor that it's too soon. Steve keeps
repeating that everything will be okay and tells the "peanut" to stay in a
little longer. He takes Lexi aside and asks her if the baby can survive if
it comes now. Kayla doesn't think the odds are good. Steve tells her to
trust the doctors. The doctors look worried.
and Bo arrive at the hospital and she gets out her phone. Meanwhile,
Stephanie and Chelsea are watching TV when Hope calls to tell Steph that
Kayla has gone into labor. Stephanie goes into instant panic. They hurry
over to the hospital. Stephanie wanders in to see her mother and Chelsea
stands with Bo and Hope. As Bo comforts his daughter, she remembers her
dream about Zach, the way he used to hide from her and the way she blamed
herself for his death. This situation is only bringing back that pain. Bo
wonders if Kayla has gone into labor because of the Vitali mess. He and Hope
tell Chelsea that Martino is dead. Back in her hospital room, Kayla starts
to scream that the baby is coming. The doctors tell her to push. The baby
starts to crown. A little boy comes out but he isn't crying. The boy is
rushed to neonatal ICU. Kayla demands an answer. "
