Not Half Bad.
shocked to find Dr. Baker at the hospital. He's the new pediatrician. She's
not happy. He thinks she should be glad that the baby's doctor already knows
all about her. "We are done," she says, telling him to leave town. He needs
the job. She accuses him of coming back to blackmail her. "If I were ever in
need, I would have a wonderful friend to help out an old pal," he admits.
She repeats her old threats. He tells her that she is frighteningly sly
sometimes, but right now she is being an idiot. Nicole doesn't like his
smirk. Her threats don't scare him anymore because she has more to lose than
he does. He threatens her until she agrees to stop making threats... but she
refuses to let him be her baby's doctor. Baker thinks that's a bad idea and
points out how complicated things could get if Sydney had a different
doctor. She still refuses and tells him to stay away. He warns her how upset
Mia will be if she finds out what happened and then walks away.
Sami's, Will asks Mia to take Grace in her arms. She can't. She explains
she's been around babies before... sort of. "Adopted babies get lots of
extra love," she says. He's confused. She explains that a friend of hers was
adopted and always wondered who her real parents were. Still, she thinks
that what his mom did was awesome. He agrees. She holds the baby and tells
him how good it feels. As they begin changing diapers, Nicole calls Mia and
asks her to meet up urgently. After she leaves, Will tells Grace that she's
not half bad.
and Mia meet at the pier. Nicole tells her that Tony is dead and out of the
picture. Mia thinks she should be relieved but Nicole explains they have
another problem - Dr. Baker is back. Nicole accuses her of coming back for
the baby. "Kind of," she admits, but she promises to stay away. Nicole
doubts she can stay away and decides to lay down some rules, warning that,
if she breaks them, it will hurt Sydney. She tells her to stay away from her
and the doctor, or leave town. Mia agrees to stick to the rules. Nicole
suggests she pursue her dancing dreams in New York. Mia wants to finish high
school in Salem first.
finds Philip moping in the pub. Stefano walks in and groans to himself when
he spots them. She rushes over and tells him how sorry she is about what
happened. Philip stands up. He knows that Stefano must want to break heads,
but says, "I'm not the man to blame for Tony's death. That person is his
father. It's you," he accuses. Steph gets between them. "You have no idea
how I feel and you should pray to God that you never do," Stefano threatens
before he trudges off. The couple sits down. He hates Stefano but isn't
happy to see him go through this. He knows exactly how Tony felt though.
Philip feels like a failure since his father fired him. "The way I see it,
he just set you free," she suggests. He smiles when he realizes that he's in
control of his own life. They go over to the mansion and he tells her how
lucky he is to have her. After packing, he leaves a note for his father.
They go back to her place and she tells him he can stay there as long as he
wants. He's not sure that's a good idea, especially since she lives with
Chelsea and she's dating Max. Steph still wants him to stay and invites him
into the bedroom.
shows up at the mansion to hug EJ and tell him how sorry she is about Tony.
He tells her how hard things were between Tony and the family before he
died. He's not sure that his brother knew how much he loved him. Sitting by
the fire, he tells her how still the house is. The rooms seem empty now. She
knows how hard it is to say goodbye but she might have something to make him
feel better. They play with Johnny and then put him to bed. He says that
losing his brother has helped him understand why she is adopting a baby.
She's impressed by his change of heart and thinks he's such a good dad that
she should tell him something about Grace. Sami hopes he's not a resentful
person... Before she can explain why, Stefano storms in yelling about how
Philip should be dead. Sami and Stefano begin arguing. Stefano insists that
the DiMeras will look after themselves since the Bradys are looking after
the Kiriakis family. After he walks off, EJ asks Sami what she was going to
say about Grace. She just wanted to make it clear that her baby is a Brady
and their families need to steer clear of each other. This doesn't make
sense to him. She freaks and runs off, refusing to explain. Meanwhile,
Stefano goes down to the scene of Tony's death. He sits
by the stake where he was impaled and cries.

There's Plenty Of Blame To Go Around.
the cabin, Kate is giving Chloe pointers on how to segue and pretend she
cares about things she's talking about. Chloe is overwhelmed. Kate thinks
she's underestimating her ability to fool people. Maggie arrives and chats
with Chloe while Kate talks to Victor on the phone. He's worried about
Philip and explains that he's moved out of the house. They bicker over
what's wrong with their son. "He left you and you can't take it," she
suggests. When she gets off the phone, she finds Maggie giving Chloe a copy
of The Bible. They sit around and drink tea. Chloe doesn't know how to let
it steep properly. Kate runs off to volunteer at the hospital and leaves
them alone. Chloe doesn't understand why Kate wants her to do this; Kate's
niceness seems fake to her. They wonder if Kate knows about Daniel, but
assume she would have come after her by now if she did. When Maggie glimpses
that Chloe has an appointment with Daniel in her day planner, she blows up.
Chloe explains he's the only doctor qualified to treat her. She swears on
The Bible that things are over between her and the doctor.
sits at the crime scene. A cop comes by and begins to clean up. Stefano
insists that his son was murdered and Philip will pay for it. He gets a call
from one of his men who informs him that the Kiriakis mansion is now under
surveillance, in spite of some hiccups getting in there. Stefano gets off
the phone as Victor arrives. He doesn't want to talk. Victor offers to go
somewhere else. "Is there anywhere else that my son is not dead?" Stefano
asks. Victor repeats that this was all an accident and admits that they are
both to blame. Stefano has been staring at Tony's blood all day and decided
that he needs to make his enemy know how this feels.
and Stephanie are making out on her couch. Chelsea walks in, sees them,
walks out and then rings the bell. When she comes in, Philip apologizes.
Chelsea brushes past and Steph wonders what her problem is. Philip is sure
he's the problem. Steph explains the situation to her friend. Chelsea
worries about how complicated this situation is. Once she flounces away,
Philip tells Stephanie that Chelsea may be right to try and warn her away
from him. She gets his shirt off and they make out. As she climbs on his
lap, he looks down and sees Tony on the front of the newspaper. That ruins
the mood. While he puts on his shirt, he tells her she doesn't want to share
his messy life. She complains about his father and tells him that she likes
that, without Victor around, he has the chance to be the real him. They make
out until Victor comes knocking at the door. "I'm sorry," he offers. Victor
wants to be a better father and asks his son back to Titan and the family.
Steph goes to her room and leaves them alone. "I know you want change, I
just don't know why," Philip says. Victor doesn't want to give up on his
dream of working side by side with his son. Philip thinks he's sacred. His
father warns him that there is plenty to be scared about. Before he leaves,
Philip offers his apologies. "There's plenty of blame to go around," Victor
says as he leaves. Steph returns and tells him he can't go back to his
the hospital, Mel is in her candy-striper uniform and standing with the
nurse. She spots Dr. Daniel. "That's Dr. Don't-you-go-near-him," the nurse
advises. Mel instantly runs over to him and introduces herself. He tells her
to stay with nurse Maxine and walks away. Maxine advises her to wash her
hands and change her attitude so she'll be ready for the lunch rush. As it
starts, Melanie gets into a fight with an old man who throws creamed kale in
her face. Meanwhile, a fellow doctor asks Daniel out. He tells her it will
have to wait. When she walks off, Kate arrives and tells him he'll be seeing
her around. Melanie paces around the nurse's station when Chelsea arrives,
disturbed to see her working there. "My love for mankind kicked in... and
this is the only job I could get," she says. She wanders over to Kate. They
chat about Philip and Chelsea notices her grandmother is staring at Daniel.
"Poor Daniel. I don't think he knows what's coming," she says as she walks
away. Kate stands there and fantasizes about killing Chloe while drinking a
cocktail and forcing the doctor to watch.
walks around the hospital making beds and complaining to herself. Maggie
comes in to check on her and tells her she needs to remake the bed. She
offers to help and starts showing her how to make a bed properly. Melanie
begins asking her about Daniel and giggling. Later, she is delivering pills
when Kate bumps into her. She knocks the pills on the floor. Kate swipes a
key and Mel flounces off. Chelsea walks in and reminds Kate that she's met
Mel before. Stefano arrives to pick up his son's death certificate. Kate
tells him how sorry she is; her son is beside himself over this. He tells
her to cherish her son's life. "Life, as we've learned time and time again,
is only temporary," he says. She wanders over to the medicine cabinet.
Before she can get to the pills, Melanie catches her. They exchange threats
until Mel cowers. Kate hands the key over and Mel sulks away.
walks into the pub and sees Chloe. He almost walks out but then decides to
sit down with her. She thinks this is a bad idea. He says pretending they
aren't casual friends would look more suspicious. She's paranoid about Kate.
"I have this weird feeling that she is somehow torturing me," she admits. He
tells her that Kate quizzed him about them before but is sure she knows
nothing. As she pokes at her salad, he asks about the pregnancy and wonders
if she would have told him if it was his child. She makes her excuse. He's
sad she went through it alone. "You're not the guy I go through things
with," she reminds him. He leaves her alone. Chelsea walks in and asks Chloe
if she's seen Kate. Meanwhile, Stefano wanders down to the pier and talks
about Philip in Italian on the phone.
April 8, 2009
She Always Needs A Babysitter.
is disturbed to hear Philip announce that he is returning to Titan. He tells
her that his father is really sorry for how he's treated him. She doesn't
think Victor can change. He knows she wants him to be his own person, and he
wants the same thing, but he has to sort out the mess he has made. Although
he may not have wanted to kill Tony, he did want to hurt him. Steph can't
take it anymore. "I guess this is goodbye," she cries. He asks her if she
knows how many times she's broken up with him; it's lost all impact by now,
and just when he was used to having her in his life. Philip asks her to help
work this out. She can't stand to watch him turn into someone she doesn't
like; she just wants to be his girlfriend, not his conscience. Walking out,
he wishes that he could be the guy she wanted. They both know that's not
possible. As she falls on the couch in tears, Chelsea arrives. Steph
explains that he is gone for good. She pouts and Chelsea suggests that
Philip wanted her to dump him for her sake. Chelsea tells her to cut her
losses. Steph starts to worry about the danger Philip is in and decides what
she wants to do about it. As Philip returns to the mansion, Stephanie shows
up. "If you want me to leave, you're going to have to make me," she says,
calls Will and asks him to meet up so she give him back the book he lent
her. He agrees to see her after his mother comes back to look after the
children. Rafe comes through the door. Will isn't thrilled to see that he's
not Sami. Rafe isn't thrilled to hear that Sami has gone to see EJ. He
questions him and Will is defensive. Rafe apologizes and asks if he can hang
out and wait for Sami. Will offers him a seat and asks him if he is hung up
on his mom. Rafe claims he's not. Will is sarcastic. Rafe needs beer. "I'm
pretty sure she's not into you the way you're into her," Will tells him. He
advises him to keep it simple and tell his mom the minimal.
bumps into Dr. Baker at the Java Cafe. He asks her why she's come back. She
tries to avoid him but he asks her how she is. "Have you seen your little
girl?" he queries. She tries to get rid of him so she can start her life
over. He apologizes and walks away as Will walks in. He asks who the old guy
was. She makes an excuse and asks him about the baby, reminding him to treat
her like a real part of the family. She offers to babysit whenever Sami
needs it. "She always needs a babysitter," Will says. Mia admits that
something about Grace really got to her and she wants to help take care of
the mansion, EJ and Sami are bickering. She worries that Stefano is in the
mood for revenge and doesn't want him conducting 'business' anywhere near
her son. As they argue, Nicole arrives and listens from the foyer as Elvis
promises Sami that he will never let anything happen to her. Sami rants
about Stefano and Elvis defends his father until Nicole interrupts and asks
her why she is so upset. They talk about the situation and Nicole admits
that she's worried about how dangerous things are. Elvis bellows at her. She
tells him they should act like adults, even if that means agreeing with
Sami, and invites Sami to bring Johnny to the wedding. Sami is stunned that
they are going through with the wedding. Nicole wants to do something
positive. "It's going to seem tacky," Sami suggests. "It's going to be
magical. Every girl's dream," Nicole insists. Flowers are delivered to the
door. Nicole asks if they are for the wedding. "They're condolence flowers,"
Elvis explains. He begins barking at Nicole for letting Philip go free. Sami
thought she'd have known better than to betray the family. Nicole throws a
fit and stomps out. Sami doubts that Nicole understands why he is siding
with his father over her. He changes the subject. She reminds him he has
children to think about. "I don't need the reminder," he says.
begins ranting at Nicole for changing his child's doctor without telling
him. He also rants about Baker being at the hospital and demands to know
what is going on. She accuses him of becoming more like his father. Watching
Tony die was painful and scary for her but all she got was the cold shoulder
because she refused to perjure herself. He doesn't trust her anymore and
tells her they need to stop and think about this wedding. She assumes that
he wants to call it off and doesn't know what to do. As she cries, he
guesses that she is sad. Although she claims otherwise, he knows the
difference. She thinks they are exhausted and grieving. "I think we need to
spend some time apart," he says before kissing her and walking out. She sits
down and weeps.
Sami gets home, she finds Rafe with the baby. He asks her what's wrong but
she doesn't want to talk to him about EJ. She wishes she could have gotten
Elvis out of there. "It's not like you can put him in a car seat and drive
him away," Rafe reminds her. She knows another way - telling him the truth
about Grace. When he blows up at this, she accuses him of being jealous. He
doubts she would even think of telling the truth if EJ wasn't walking down
the aisle with someone she hates. Sami is starting to feel like she is
denying her daughter the truth about who she really is. He thinks that would
be dangerous but she is sure that delaying things will only make it more
dangerous. "You're not telling him!" he forbids. This isn't his decision,
she points out, weeping and running off. He tells Grace that her mother
doesn't think he's part of her life. He walks out as Sami returns.

This Marriage Is Doomed.
arrives at home and finds Chelsea attempting some carpentry. She tells her
friend that she doesn't have any doubts about Philip anymore but she thought
they both needed some time apart to process stuff. She worries that Philip
is in danger. Chelsea suggests she focus on the good things and enjoy her
time with the person she loves. Steph is inspired and rushes off.
goes down to the pier and looks at the memorial for Tony that's been set up
under the police tape. "How can this be all that's left? I will avenge your
death, even if it's the last thing I do," EJ vows. Max steps up and asks him
if that's the last thing he wants to do before he gets married. Elvis
doesn't want his advice and refuses to let bygones be bygones. Max doubts
Tony would want his death to set off more fighting. As they bicker, Chelsea
arrives. She tells him to take Max's advice and reminds EJ that he and his
family have been terrorizing the town for years. They should leave Philip to
live with his guilt. Elvis isn't impressed and thinks this is a waste of
time. After he flounces away, Max tells Chelsea that he loves her because
she's feisty. She doesn't want him to patronize her. He worries her
'feministic spunk' could get her into trouble.
is with the wedding planner, Monique, at the church. She worries that
someone could get killed at the wedding. She feels like everything will fall
apart and flashes back over everything that's happened lately. "This
marriage is doomed," she declares.
and Chloe are having lunch at the pub. He doesn't want to be one of those
couples who never spend time together. She worries about her new job and how
it could take up all of her time. This job isn't for her and she can't do
it. He suggests that she try it for awhile. The wedding planner calls and
asks her to come down to the church right away. Chloe rushes over to see
Nicole and find out what's wrong. Nicole talks like the wedding won't
happen. "I didn't ruin things because I told the truth, I ruined them
because I lied," she explains. Before, she always got married for money. She
thought it was different this time but now she's not so sure. "Do I really
want to marry a man who isn't one hundred percent in love with me?" she
asks. Chloe says there are different kinds of love. Nicole admits that Sami
is getting in the way. Chloe tells her that love should be stable and safe.
Her friend thinks that's boring and asks her how her marriage with Lucas is
going. "Are you ready to shoot yourself yet?" she jokes. Unfortunately,
Chloe lost her sense of humor when she got married. Nicole tells her about
the look in EJ's eyes when he thinks of Sami, plus she doesn't believe her
story about the kid. Chloe says Lucas believed her story and he's not dumb.
The blond thanks her for the great advice. They hug. After Chloe leaves,
Nicole promises Sydney that everything will be okay.
runs into Daniel at the pub. She congratulates him on staying away from
Chloe and thinks he's a great asset to the hospital. She reminds him that he
is a doctor, not a monk, and he should do what's right for him. He gets
nervous. Maggie tells him a lot of women in Salem are after him and tries to
set him up. Reluctantly, he agrees to think about it and she leaves him
alone. Maggie walks across the room to bother Lucas. He tells her how bad he
feels for Nicole and for Philip and their troubles with the DiMeras. "That
family better stay the hell away from my brother," he warns. Chloe returns
and Lucas talks about how wonderful things are. Daniel awkwardly watches
them as they plan a post-wedding party. Maggie hurries away and leaves the
couple to kiss. The doctor loses his appetite. Chloe gets a call. "This is
the best news ever!" she exclaims as she gets off the phone. Her agent just
offered her a lead role in Vancouver. "Don't tell me you are thinking of
accepting this," he says. Later, Daniel runs into Maggie at the hospital and
tells her that she is right. He has been 'monastic bordering on masochistic'
and would like to have drinks with a woman. She bustles off to set it up.
goes to the church. "Hey God," she prays. She thanks God for bringing Philip
into her life and hopes he is safe and can find peace. She goes into the
chapel and thanks Nicole for helping Philip. She wishes her well and gives
her a hug. Elvis watches from a distance. After Steph leaves, he walks in.
Nicole apologizes for fighting earlier. He came to apologize too, but after
seeing Stephanie thank her, he's sure that she is hiding something from him.
She's tired of explaining herself to him ninety times a day. While she
understands that he wants to blame Philip, he should remember that Tony is
the one who betrayed the family and they shouldn't be blaming her. She
demands to know if the wedding is on or not. "We'll just have to see what
tomorrow brings," he says.
and Chelsea go back to her place. Seeing the unassembled bookcase, he mocks
her carpentry skills and they start making out. He's distracted by the wood
and wants to put it together. She finds that annoying and tells him she
wants to do it on her own. He tells her that she is inept at this but good
at other things. They kiss. Stephanie shows up and interrupts. Max covers
his shame with a pillow. She explains that Philip won't be staying there
anymore but they haven't broken up. Max thinks she's nuts and is putting
herself in danger. She refuses to be a coward. The former lovers bicker.
Chelsea looks uncomfortable.
April 10, 2009
One Bird Down.
arrives at the convent and bumps into Sister Agnes. He has a major dilemma
and doesn't know how to handle it. She guesses he's talking about Sami. "I
think we're through," he suggests. He complains that Sister Theresa was
giving Sami bad advice about EJ. The nun suggests that Sami has just become
more realistic and wonders if Rafe wants to be the man in Sami's heart. He's
sure that she is in love with the baby's father. The nun tells him to fight
for Sami if he loves her and encourages him to tell her how he feels.
Sami leaps up when there is a knock at her door. She
expects Rafe but it's Caroline. She says that Sami looks like she just lost
her best friend. "I might have," Sami says. She was obviously hoping to see
someone else. As they sit down, Sami asks about how she kept the truth from
Bo about his father. Caroline says she was foolish and very, very wrong. She
wishes she had been honest from the beginning because secrets and lies are
destructive and hurtful. Sami thanks her for the advice. After Caroline
leaves, Rafe shows up. He wanted to apologize for the way they left things.
She rests her head on his shoulder. He tells her that he has been pushy and
irrational and she needs to make decisions for herself. She can't make a
decision. Rafe tells her that EJ is rich and powerful and she loves him.
"You can get EJ back and blow Nicole out of the water at the same time," he
suggests. She gasps. He wants to stop interfering in her life but she
refuses to let him walk out.
the church, Nicole asks EJ if the wedding will go ahead. He tells her that
they will have to wait and see. She needs a better answer. As she begs for
one, Brady waits in the corridor. Elvis explains that he's not angry, he
just needs time to think. "I'm calling the shots here," he tells her. He
doesn't think she understands how much his life has changed since his
brother died. She cries as he walks out. Brady comes in and asks her to
explain. She complains about how her life is falling apart and tells him how
Elvis thinks she betrayed him to the Kiriakis family. Brady reminds her that
she didn't do anything wrong. "He's not the right man for you and he does
not deserve you," he says. She refuses to give up and vows to be EJ's wife,
whether he deserves her or not. He doesn't think that her attitude is
healthy and he doesn't want to watch her go through this anymore. Brady
tells her that if she wants to give the marriage a shot, she has to come
clean. The truth isn't an option anymore, she claims. She tells him that
their time is past. Brady insists that he only wants to help her. Nicole is
sure she only has to make EJ remember why he fell in love with her and
begins laying the blame on Sami. He's sure Sami isn't the problem. If Elvis
loves her, everything will straighten itself out. Right now, she should just
chill out. Hugging him, she tells him he's a saint for dealing with her.
Left alone, Brady prays and asks God for help showing Nicole that EJ is the
wrong man for her and she deserves someone else.
Nicole goes back to the mansion. She wants to keep a
clear head but starts drinking anyway and then opts to take a nap. When she
falls asleep, she dreams of the wedding. Elvis declares that he is taking
Sami as his wife because she is honest. Sami gets up and says that she and
EJ have two children together. Dr. Baker backs her up but points out that
Sami's baby is actually Mia's. Nicole runs to the baby and holds her,
telling everyone to back off. She wakes up. "I can't let that happen. I
won't!" she vows. She gets plastered and vows to make Sami 'toast'.
she runs over to the pub, she spots Sami chasing Rafe down to the pub. As he
tells her that this is for the best, Nicole suddenly recognizes him.
Elvis bumps into Mia in the Java Cafe. He buys her a
new drink since he spilled hers. When he walks away, she picks up the paper
and spots a picture of EJ and Nicole. "Nicole's fiance? My baby's father?"
wanders around outside the pub and sends Chelsea a text message. As she
sits, she sees Irene talking to Maggie on the phone, thanking her for
setting her up with Daniel. Kate walks over and tells her that she knows
Daniel. She warns her that he gets around. "Thank God he's a doctor. If he
can't cure it, at least he can give you the prescription to help ease the
discomfort," she says. Irene is grossed out.
and Chloe are in the pub. He's trying to convince her not to take the job in
Vancouver. Daniel walks over and congratulates her on the new gig. Lucas
asks him to join them. Daniel tells them he has a date. The hospital calls
and he walks off. Lucas spots his mother outside and runs off to see her.
Irene walks in. She and Chloe are old friends and they begin catching up.
Irene is there for a date. Chloe guesses it's with Daniel and tells her he's
a great doctor. Irene has heard he's 'a dog'. When Daniel walks over, Irene
tells him that it's not cool for them to be together since they already work
together. Outside, Lucas asks his mother if she is spying on him. She claims
she's not. When he tells her about Chloe's new job in Vancouver, Kate barks,
"No! She can't!" Lucas explains that he and Chloe thought she could do the
hosting job and sing too. His mother groans. He wants his wife to be happy,
even if she will be exhausted. She starts to wonder if a fatigued Chloe
might be useful. Lucas goes back in to get his wife. Kate watches Irene mope
out. "One bird down. One songbird to go," she says.
