She's A Total Psycho.
sits at the Java Cafe remembering giving birth. Will snaps her out of it and
asks her what she's reading about in the paper. She's been reading about
Nicole and EJ's wedding and says they seem perfect. Will looks down and
explains that the bride used to be his step-mom. She asks him if Nicole was
a bad mom. He can't really remember but he heard that she only married his
dad for money and drank a lot. "Why do you care so much?" he asks. She
admits that she knows her and claims that she was a mentor to a high risk
friend of hers. Will explains that Nicole has major issues and begins to run
through the catalog. He doubts her new marriage will last more than a few
weeks. "She's a total psycho," he says before telling her about Nicole's
porn past. She needs more specifics to tell her friend. He suggests that
Nicole has softened up. Maybe she won't try to kill someone this time... Mia
is shocked and demands an explanation. Will wants to shut up and tells her
she can read up online. His father calls and he walks off. "I will not let
you keep my little girl Nicole," Mia vows.
wanders the chapel hoping that Nicole doesn't go through with the wedding.
Meanwhile, Melanie is at the Java Cafe ordering a salad and belittling the
waitress. She realizes that she can't afford to buy it. As she eats, she
plants a bug in her salad and begins yelling. The waitress accuses her of
putting it there. They argue until Brady shows up and offers to cover it. He
sits with her and she rants until he tells her to drop the charade. She
wonders why he is so nice to her and asks him if he is single because she
thinks he registers high on the hotness scale. "You're still in love with
that awful woman, aren't you?" she asks. He tries to change the subject but
it turns out that she's talking about Chloe. Brady says she was a sweetheart
but he's happy for her and Lucas. She guesses he's in love with someone
else. He doesn't want to talk about it. After talking about how unpopular
she is, she tells him that she wants him to be happy and offers him some
advice - being honest freaks people out, but he still needs to tell his
mystery woman how he feels.
the hall, Nicole spots Sami and Rafe arguing in the townhouse. She remembers
that he came to the mansion as the cable guy. She hurries off. Inside, Sami
tells Rafe that she's afraid her daughter will resent her if the truth
doesn't come out now. When Rafe doesn't seem supportive of her plans, she
tells him that he is wrong about everything. No matter what she decides to
do about EJ, she doesn't want Rafe to leave Salem... but she still doesn't
know what she is going to do. He thinks it's funny that she's trying to make
him promise things when she doesn't know what she wants. He is going to do
what he thinks is best for Grace. She cries as he walks out.
wanders around the streets and remembers his time in the safe house with
Sami. Back at the townhouse, she sits with Grace and tells her that she just
wants to do what's best, even if she doesn't know what that is. Her phone
rings. It's Rafe, but he can't say anything and hangs up. He calls someone
else – Sister Agnes. When he visits her at the convent, he complains about
how stubborn Sami is. He's sure that there is no space for him in her life.
Rafe has already bought a ticket and plans to leave tomorrow. The nun gives
him a hug; she'll miss him. He asks her to check in on Sami.
mopes around the mansion when his father walks in. Stefano wonders where
Nicole is. Elvis doesn't know. He doesn't even know if there will be a
wedding. After seeing Steph hug Nicole, he felt derailed. "She is a traitor
through and through. To Hell with her!" Stefano declares. Nicole steps in
and says she can prove who the real traitor is. She explains that she was
bringing Sami Johnny's medication and she saw her with Rafe. He was in the
mansion months ago, pretending to be the cable guy and snooping around. She
suggests that Sami was spying on them while she was in hiding. Stefano runs
off to check out the story. Sami calls. He hangs up on her. Nicole tells him
how much she believes in the truth, claiming that is why she stood up for
Philip, and asks him if the marriage is going to happen tomorrow. Stefano
interrupts to say that the story has checked out. EJ asks for a moment alone
with his fiancee. He smiles. Before he can answer her question, Sami
arrives. Elvis refuses to let her in after she's spied on him. "You don't
want to have me but you don't want anyone else to have me either!" he
accuses. Nicole asks her why she sent Rafe there to spy on them. Sami says
she was worried about her child. Elvis closes the door in her face. Sami
tells herself that she still needs to come clean. Inside, Nicole has a smug
smile. EJ apologizes for how he has been lately and thanks her for proving
her loyalty. He thinks she's a wonderful and kind person and they can be
incredibly happy. Getting on his knees, he asks her to marry him again. She
giddily accepts and kisses him.

It's a Promise.
the cabin, Chloe is looking at a dress and wondering where Nicole is. Kate
calls. She needs to see her immediately. Chloe groans and tells her this is
a bad time. Outside, Mia surprises Nicole on the cabin's lawn. "You're a
liar Nicole. I hate you," she says. She knows all about Nicole's past and
won't let her keep her baby. Nicole insists that she is a good mother.
"You're an alcoholic porn star who tried to murder someone!" Mia barks.
Nicole claims that is all ancient history. Mia's read all about it online.
Chloe walks out and interrupts. They go into the cabin and Nicole claims she
is mentoring Mia. "Why don't you tell the truth for a change?" Mia asks.
Nicole tries to get rid of her but she won't go anywhere. Chloe has to leave
for a meeting. Once she's gone, Mia tells Nicole that there will be no
wedding. Nicole wants to talk this over but Mia thinks she a monster. When
Nicole claims that she is good and was born to be a mother, Mia refuses to
listen. Nicole admits to everything and tries to make excuses, not that Mia
is willing to entertain them. Getting angry, Nicole reminds her that she had
no resources to raise a child and now Sydney can have a mother and father
and everything she needs. "I would be a helluva lot better mother than you
ever would!" Mia shouts before vowing to get her daughter back and storming
out the door. Nicole chases her outside and tells her how much she has
changed. She talks of falling in love with EJ and being genuinely happy
before she lost the baby. After she's told her sob story again, Mia demands
to know what else she is lying about. "Sydney is my daughter. She belongs
with me," Mia repeats. Nicole refuses to fight but warns her that there
could be repercussions. Things will be bad for her, but they will be worse
for Mia and the baby. Nicole points out that if this goes to trial, it will
look like Mia sold the child. Mia isn't impressed by her threats. "It's not
a threat Mia. It's a promise," Nicole says.
wakes from a nightmare about Roman and Hope. Looking over, he realizes that
today is the day in his dream. He reads a note that Hope left by his bed.
Meanwhile, Hope walks into the Java Cafe and spots Roman. He tells her that
he'll be her new stakeout partner. Half of the force is sick so he has to
step in. Before they can leave, he gets a tip that they'll be working at the
Hacienda Motel. Hope looks worried. As soon as they leave, Bo runs in
looking for them. Maggie tells him that they left together. She asks him why
he seems so distracted. He has another flash of his vision and turns pale.
Maggie leaves. A cop arrives and fills Bo in on the situation. The radio
communications are down and no one knows where Roman and Hope are. They get
a lead on where Roman's informant is but it turns out that he's vanished.
and Hope arrive at the motel. Their communication line gets cut and their
cell phones get no signal so they stay quiet. He watches through the window
until she spills coffee on them. She gets undressed and puts on a robe,
batting him away when he gets too close. He demands to know why Bo wants
them to stay away from each other. She won't explain. As she looks out the
window, she spots the man they are after but worries he spotted her too.
They panic and pull their guns when someone comes to the door.
the pub, Kate sits with Daniel and tells him about the show she is launching
for Chloe. She asks him if he'd like to do a guest spot. He claims he's too
shy. She's sure that's what draws women to him. He agrees to, as long as it
helps people. "I can think of someone who it will help already," Kate
perkily says. He gets nervous when she tells him they are waiting for the
host. Chloe arrives. Kate tells her that she has terrific news - Daniel will
be on their show. Chloe says it's a bad idea. Kate is sure that he's famous
and has a face for TV. Chris runs in and babbles to Kate that there has been
a fire at the studio. "Looks like the show just got canceled," Chloe says in
scarcely hidden relief. She's happy that she can go to Vancouver now. Kate
reminds her that she is under contract and she will make this show work.
Kate doesn't think she knows just how important this is to her. As they
talk, Maggie walks into the pub and asks Daniel if everything is alright. He
explains about the fire and worries that Kate needs to slow down. Maggie has
an idea. She strides over to Kate and offers her Chez Rouge as a set. Kate
enthusiastically thanks her and asks Daniel and Chloe if she can count on
them. They agree to go along with this. Kate says that Daniel can talk about
nutrition and Chloe can sample food she will have prepared.

A Pre-Packaged Baby Deal.
the cabin, Mia doesn't appreciate Nicole's continued threats. Nicole ignores
this and tells her that she better think things through or she could lose
her daughter for good. Mia refuses to let that happen. "Words are cheap,"
Nicole says. She went through a lifetime of pain and humiliation as child.
"What's that got to do with me?" Mia asks. Nicole says she reminds her of
herself; she thought she was tough too and made some pretty big mistakes.
Now she has everything she wanted because she overcame her past. She's sure
that if the truth comes out Mia will only ruin her own future. Mia tells her
she might be right, but her instincts are telling her to get her baby back,
so that's what she's doing. Before Mia can leave, Nicole gives her a copy of
a family portrait and asks her to keep it for Sydney, "No matter where she
ends up." She warns her again that the truth could make her lose the baby to
foster care. Mia cries and wishes things were different. She doesn't want to
risk losing her child again.

well as he leaves. Mia shows up a few minutes later. She's reluctant to talk
about what's bothering her. Will hands her the baby to hold. Her face lights
wanders around by the pier and thinks over Melanie's advice about the woman
in his life. He sneers at a newspaper article announcing Nicole's marriage
and runs off. He arrives at the cabin to see Nicole. She's surprised to see
him and tells him he'll have to make it fast. When he asks her what just
happened with Mia, she tries fobbing him off, but he refuses to go. She asks
him to be supportive of her on her wedding day. "There's something I have to
tell you," he says. She assumes he is going to tell her to come clean with
EJ again. He tells her she will never be happy with EJ and she deserves to
be loved for herself, not because she's part of a 'pre-packaged baby deal'.
He leans in to kiss her. She pulls away. He tries again. She pulls away once
more. "You deserve to be loved. You deserve to be happy," he repeats. She
says that she and EJ are wired the same way; they aren't good like him. She
knows that they are dysfunctional but Elvis is what she needs. Brady needs
her too. Nicole asks him to walk away and reminds him of when he threw her
out of his life. He doesn't want to see her get hurt again. She's willing to
accept that she is damning her own life by marrying EJ. "Find someone who
deserves you," she says, he kisses her tenderly and walks away. She bursts
the Java Cafe, Bo starts gritting his teeth when Hope and Roman seem to have
vanished. He runs around town searching. Over at the motel, Hope and Roman
are stuck with no way of communicating with the outside world. Someone
starts trying to open the door so they whip out their guns. It's just
housekeeping. They pretend to be a couple and get rid of the maid. They get
back into position and wait. Bo suddenly kicks the door in and they almost
shoot him. Looking out the window, they notice that the other cops already
arrested the drug dealers. Roman leaves to help. Hope and Bo hug. When he
picks up the newspaper, Bo says, "I'll be damned!" He explains that his
vision was accurate, but was wrong about why they were there. She tells him
that they will always deal with his visions together and then they kiss and

in and orders some food. They sit and she complains about the hospital. When
the waitress hurts her hand, he runs over to tend to her. As he's holding
her hand, Chelsea walks in and spots them. After an awkward moment, Max
introduces everyone around. When Arianna goes back to work, Chelsea and Mel
start trading barbs until Mel flashes the application for medical school
that Max filled out. Chelsea wonders if he was ever planning on telling her.
"Truth? Probably not," he admits. She thought they were going to be honest
with each other. He claims he was just trying to shield her from
disappointment. She already thinks he's terrific and is sure he will make a
fantastic doctor. Mel leaves them alone and Chelsea teases him.
Brady wanders down to the pier when Melanie pops up.
She can see he's upset and offers to help out since he's always helping her.

has been called off. Nicole cries and explains that the wedding is going
ahead, but as she was trying her veil on, she started to think she was
making a huge mistake. She tells her about what Brady said to her but claims
she's having no doubts. Chloe thinks she's just stressed out. They go
through the wedding routine and Chloe pulls out a necklace from Nicole's
mom. Nicole is shocked to see it. She vows to be ten times the mother her
mother was. Chloe hands her something 'new' – a bracelet she bought for her.
When she tries it on, it breaks. Nicole gasps. They gather up the pieces and
Nicole interprets this as a bad omen. Chloe worries about why she is
freaking out so much and guesses that Sami must be the problem. Chloe
doesn't understand why she cares so much and tells her to, "Forget the
bleach blond witch with a soul the size of a pea." It isn't Sami she's
worried about. She even gloats about how she humiliated Sami for spying on
her. Chloe worries about her karma. As they get dressed, Nicole insists that
she is wrong and nothing bad is going to happen.
your ready to see this happen?" Stefano asks his son. "Are you talking about
the wedding or our plans for Philip?" EJ asks. He's talking about the
wedding. They wish Tony was there and hope they can take care of this mess
today. EJ can't believe his father wants to take Philip out today. Stefano
says that it's a good idea, even if that means they're imitating "The
Godfather." He tells his son not to be sentimental and worries that he has
doubts. Elvis wants Philip dead but he doesn't want his wedding day ruined.
Stefano argues that today is their best chance. EJ finally agrees and tells
his father to make the call. Stefano calls his hit man and announces that
it's time. Stefano brings in Signor Masi, one of the best hit men around. He
asks his son again if this is what he wants. It is. He hands the hit man an
untraceable phone and gives him instructions. As Masi leaves, Stefano looks

a business call. She rolls her eyes. After that call, another one comes in.
As he talks, she tries to leave. He chases her down. She can accept that
he's a workaholic, but she doesn't want to stand around waiting for him. She
is gloomily standing by the pier when Melanie approaches. He warns her to
steer clear but she's used to being around angry people. She tells him that
anger can turn into romantic passion. She kisses him. He breaks away. She
pouts. "We should both put this in the 'way too weird category' and move
on," he suggests. She jokes around, saying that she is used to guys using
her. Although she thinks his strong and silent type routine is cool, she's
sure he's dying inside. They go to the Java Cafe and she orders him donuts.
He doesn't want to think or talk about his personal life. She continues to
pry anyway until she realizes he's in love with Nicole. Mel thinks it's good
that he stay away from her, especially since she's marrying someone who is
'pure evil'. She warns him of how EJ could destroy him and Nicole. "She
doesn't know it yet, but when she says 'I do', she is really signing her
death warrant," Mel says.
shows up at Sami's after she sends him a text. He's not in the mood for
drama and wants to get this over with. She explains that she is about to do
something that will change many lives. Grace is actually her baby and she is
EJ's daughter. Lucas shakes his head and tells her how many people will be
angry... plus EJ will go 'bonkers'. He understands why she lied, and
forgives her, but wonders why she wants to tell the truth now. She says that
a nun convinced her to tell the truth. Lucas suspects she just wants to
'stick it' to Nicole. She claims she doesn't care and then moans about
Nicole. He thinks that she is doing this to get EJ back. Although she argues
otherwise, he's sure about what's going on. Sami is confident that Elvis
will quickly overcome his anger.

guy you can trust," he says.
