It's Just Wrong.
the convent, Rafe looks away as Father Matt christens the baby: Grace
Raphaela Brady. Rafe is moved. The priest wishes them the best and leaves.
"I just hope the big world is ready for Grace," Sami says, worrying how her
family will take its latest addition. Rafe promises that he's got her back.
Sami tells the baby how great Rafe is. He tells the baby that he doesn't
even have a job. "Your godfather is about as crazy for you as your mother
is," he says, promising not to let anything bad happen to her. Sami smiles
as she watches him talk to the baby.
go over to the pub so Sami can let the baby be seen in public. After
rehashing the story she is going to tell everyone about adopting an orphan,
she sits at a table while he orders lunch. Will walks in. "Whose baby is
that?" he asks. She changes the subject and says that she's disappointed
that he blew off his dad so he could play basketball. They don't have
anything in common, not even the same sense of humor, he explains. She
wishes he would cut him some slack and then introduces him to his new
sister. "Shut up," he says. He assumes she's joking when she tells him the
baby's name. "We could start a show," he sarcastically remarks before
telling her she is nuts. She gives him her story but he accuses her of lying
to his face as usual. Sami wants to talk this through with her son. He tells
her that she's been neglecting all of her children and he's angry that she's
just found 'a new toy'. Sami objects but Will refuses to talk if she is
going to cry all the time. Everything was screwed up when he was a kid, but
he's okay now, in spite of the fact that she wasn't there for him. She knows
she was never a perfect mom. He tells her that having another kid 'is just
wrong'. She's sorry he feels abandoned but she's always loved him.
Tearfully, she tells him that Grace will need a big brother. He's finished
dealing with her tears and walks out. He runs into Rafe outside. He can
understand why he would be ticked off about this but there is something else
he needs to know.
the hospital, Stefano rants at Daniel when he admits they can't do much for
Tony. Stefano doesn't want anyone associated with the Kiriakis family
looking after his son. He wants Lexi to look after Tony and demands that she
be put in charge. Daniel agrees to call her, but they have done everything
they can. He suggests that he call the family and prepare everyone for the
outcome. Stefano paces, worries and weeps. It breaks his heart that this has
happened after he had a fight with Tony. Lexi arrives, out of breath and
stuttering. They explain what happened and Stefano levels the blame on
Philip. She checks out the medical report and her father tells her to take
over. Lexi is sure that Daniel is better left in charge of this. Her father
continues vowing revenge on Philip. She doesn't want to hear that kind of
talk and orders him to sit down.
Philip tells Bo that Nicole saw everything and can back
up his story. He repeats that Tony stumbled and fell. Bo calls Hope to take
care of this. He can't work it since they are brothers. Philip is tense but
he's glad Hope's on the case. Bo is sure that he is still keeping something
from him. Philip can't tell him any more about why they were fighting. Hope
arrives. Philip doesn't want to explain any more. They threaten to call
Victor. He opens up and tells them his story but worries what Nicole will
slips into Tony's room so they can have a little chat. He looks so awful she
actually feels bad for him, but she's sure that he would have enjoyed
destroying everyone's lives. "One way or another, I am going to make sure
that you never say a word," she warns. She taunts him and watches his heart
rate go up before telling him that she saved his life. That means he owes
her. As she shouts at him, a nurse comes in and informs her that he can't
say anything to anyone. The nurse ushers her out. She sneaks back in and
warns him that he better play nice. His heart rate goes up. Daniel walks in
and asks her what she is doing there. The defibrillator is brought in with
Lexi running in behind it.
wanders over to EJ and Stefano. She tells them that she was with Tony and he
is dying. Daniel comes out. Tony's heart stopped but they got it going
again. When the doctor walks away, Nicole tries to give Elvis some hope. He
admits that he was relieved his brother was leaving. Across the room,
Stefano eavesdrops as Hope questions Daniel about the injury. He says that
Tony definitely fell but it's unclear if he was pushed or not. Meanwhile,
Lexi gives Tony a paper and pencil. She tries to keep him calm as he writes
'EJ'. She rushes off to get him. Nicole wants to go with him but Hope stops
her to ask some questions. Stefano and Philip pace the room and try to
listen in. Once EJ is left alone with his brother, Tony begins writing on
the pad again.

That Is so Not True.
the pub, Sami tries telling Grace that Will will come around and be happy to
have her around. Roman walks in and asks her who the baby belongs to. "It's
mine Dad," she says, explaining she adopted her. "No you didn't," he says in
disbelief. He has to sit down. She tells him her story. He reminds her she
has three children already... and he doesn't buy her story either. Roman
digs but she won't answer questions and claims that the baby is a gift from
God. Her father isn't convinced that this is the best time for her to be
adopting children. "What's done is done," she says. He refuses to pretend
that this is a good idea. She rants at him and forbids his trying to tell
her what to do. "You're making me feel like you don't have faith in me," she
weeps. She's sure Will can take care of himself and she has enough love for
everyone else. Caroline comes over and orders Roman to stop being so hard on
Sami. She sits down and tells them that adopting Max and Frankie wasn't at
the best of times but it worked out. Sami announces that she has to leave.
Caroline congratulates her. Roman admits he is proud of his daughter, even
though he meant everything he said to her before. He agrees to be there for
her. She hugs him.
Rafe tells Will he understands why he is ticked off, but is sure that Sami
is doing a good thing by helping the baby. Will thinks she's just 'playing
mommy' again until she finds another distraction. "That is so not true,"
Rafe says. Will finds him hard to believe. Rafe explains that the reason she
adopted Grace was because of him. He tells him how terrified Sami was and
how Grace gave her focus. Will isn't impressed. Rafe thinks he's being a
jerk and tells him that his mother did nothing but worry about her children.
"Do the right thing," he tells him. Will thinks his mother will go nuts with
another kid but Rafe continues being positive. Although Will refuses to
accept the kid as his sister, he will help out. Rafe keeps gushing about
baby Grace but Will is sure she will end up alone. That doesn't stop Rafe
from lecturing Will to let go of the past. After Will mopes away, Sami comes
out and tells Rafe that she sold her story to everyone. Will returns and
tells his mother that he wants everything to be cool with them. She hugs him
and tells him he's the best son a mother could ask for.
the hospital, Hope questions Nicole about Tony's fall. She wants to talk to
EJ. Hope continues to question her. Philip shouts at her to tell the truth.
She needs time to think. Bo drags his brother off and tells him to stay out
of this. Stefano begins prodding Nicole to talk. Bo walks over to him and
repeats what he just said to Philip. Victor arrives. "Don't say another word
Philip," he instructs. Victor admits that he's to blame for what's happened;
he pushed his son too far. Philip doesn't blame him for being disappointed
after he bungled everything at work. As father and son talk, husband and
wife chat and decide that Philip is innocent. Meanwhile, Stefano badgers
Nicole to tell the cops that Philip is guilty. Lexi finally stops him. Hope
asks Nicole again for a minute of her time. Nicole doesn't want to talk to
her; the last time she did, she arrested her for a murder she didn't commit.
Stefano rants at everyone and Hope wonders why he seems more interested in
blaming Philip than worrying about Tony. After he storms off, Nicole asks
Lexi if Tony will live. "His chances, they're not good," Lexi admits. She's
sure that's why Tony is with EJ right now.
wanders over to Victor and Philip. He warns them that, in the long run, it
isn't the authorities they are going to have to worry about. Stefano wonders
how they managed to live and work in the same town for decades... but then
Philip took over Titan and everything blew up. If Philip turns out to be
responsible, "You can expect me to do what any father would do," Stefano
sits at his brother's side. Tony tries to write on the pad, eager to see the
look on Elvis' face when he finds out that Nicole never gave birth. EJ
suggests he wait. Tony grunts, groans and keeps trying to write. The pencil
is no good. Elvis leaves to find a new one but comes back with a pen and
tells him that Anna will be there soon. Nicole walks in and Tony's heart
rate shoots up. Lexi runs in and kicks the couple out. Elvis wonders why his
brother is so upset. Hope chases them down and demands a statement. As EJ
returns to his brother, Nicole begins her statement to Hope. Bo arrives and
pulls her away for a moment. Hope returns a moment later and Nicole clams up
again, refusing to speak until she knows what's going to happen to Tony.
Back in the room, Lexi takes Tony's pad away because writing is elevating
his heart rate. She begs her brother to stay calm and leaves. Elvis sits by
his brother and offers him the pen and paper if he will relax. Tony begins
scribbling again but then flatlines. The nurses rush in. Lexi tries to
revive him but there's no chance. Elvis stumbles into the hall and looks at
the paper. "B?" he asks, reading it. He walks back to the waiting room and
tells Nicole that Tony just had another heart attack. Lexi follows. "He's
gone," she tells everyone before breaking into tears.'
April 1, 2009
shows up at Sami's and checks out the baby. "Why don't you tell me who that
baby really is?" he asks. Sami says she is her daughter... in her heart at
least, and repeats her story about losing the baby. Lucas has heard her lie
before and assumes she is doing that now. "Why don't you give me the name of
the agency that gives babies to women who have paid assassins coming after
them?" he demands. He's sure it is really her baby with EJ. They bicker and
he continues to demand to know the truth. He even asks for Rafe's number so
he can check out her story. Sami rants until the baby begins crying. He puts
the baby back to sleep. "Putting girls to sleep: That's my specialty," he
jokes. She continues trying to convince him of her lie and he finally
leaves. Sami plays with her kids and promises them that she is never going
hurries home with a pregnancy test. She begs God not to let her be pregnant,
or, at least to be pregnant with Lucas' baby. Kate arrives and Chloe lets
her in. After Kate drops some pointed criticisms, she tries to be friendly
and tells her that she thinks her daughter-in-law is more open with her than
her own son. Chloe gets nervous. "I am going to make you a star," Kate
announces. Chloe is bewildered. Kate explains that she wants to produce a
show for her. Chloe assumes she is joking but Kate is insistent. When she
turns around, she knocks over the pregnancy test. "For God's sake, tell me
you are not pregnant?" she demands. She says she needs to make sure, since
this could also be her cancer returning. "A pregnancy would ruin everything,
wouldn't it?" Kate asks, disappointed that the pregnancy will be getting in
the way of her plans. She refuses to leave until they get the results from
the test. As the diva takes the test, Lucas arrives. He's not happy to see
his mother crashing his honeymoon. She tells him that his wife is taking the
test. They argue about whether this is even any of her business. Chloe
stumbles out. Kate prompts her for the answer to the test.
Anthony!" Stefano exclaims at the hospital after he is told that Tony is
dead. Philip apologizes but insists it was an accident. Stefano stares and
Elvis pulls him away. When Stefano leaves to see his son, Elvis spars with
Philip. Victor takes his son away to have his hand looked at.
Stefano walks to his son's deathbed. "No one should
outlive their children," he says. He used to laugh when people would call
him arrogant, but now he knows that he has been. He thought that he could
toy with his son and bring him back into the fold at the time of his
choosing... but that will never happen now. "I'm never going to see you
smile again... hear you call me father," Stefano grimly says as he stares
into Tony's face. He will pay for the rest of his life, but so will the
people who did this. "Your death will be vindicated or I will die trying,"
tells his son that this was an accident. Philip admits it wasn't entirely an
accident. He was there with Tony and he had a hand in this. Victor doesn't
know how his son ended up being so introspective but he's proud that he's
trying to be honest with himself. He just hopes that he's on good terms with
Nicole or she might end up saying something to send him to jail.
continues to badger Nicole and asks her what really happened with Tony.
Brady rushes in and asks her what she did. That only makes the cop more
suspicious. "Was it an accident or not?" Hope asks. Elvis walks in and
announces that his brother is dead and it's Philip's fault. Brady urges
Nicole to tell him it's not true. She asks if Tony said anything before he
died. "He left me a message," EJ says. Hope asks what it was and he hands
her the note. She doesn't know what the solitary letter 'B' is supposed to
mean either. He is sure that this is all Philip's fault and wants him
charged with murder. Elvis tells Nicole to tell the police what she saw;
only she can make the call on what will happen next. She tells Hope what she
saw and explains that Philip had nothing to do with it. "Wrong answer
Nicole," Stefano says as he arrives. He throws accusations at Philip until
Hope stops him. He's sure that Salem PD will do nothing. "I know what
happened and I know what needs to be done," he says, warning Nicole that he
will never forget what she's done. After Stefano stalks away, Brady tries to
comfort Philip and Nicole tries to comfort EJ. Elvis feels guilty for the
way he treated his brother. She repeats that the death was an accident. He
doesn't blame her for telling the truth. "It's lies that kill," he says.
asks Nicole if she is okay. She's not. He wonders why she was on the pier.
She claims that she was only going to talk to him. "You got what you wanted,
didn't you?" he asks. Nicole repeats that she told the truth. Hope butts in
and asks if there is something she should know. They claim there isn't.
After she leaves, Nicole decides to talk to Philip alone. He thanks her for
telling the truth. She didn't do it out of the kindness of her heart. He
wonders what she expects in return. Stefano walks over. He's disgusted to
see her talking to Philip. Meanwhile, EJ sobs over his brother's body. He
stares down at the note he left and wonders what it could mean. He promises
that he will figure it out.
April 2, 2009
comes out of the bathroom and tells Lucas that she doesn't know if she is
pregnant. There was something wrong with the test. Kate offers to get her
another one. Lucas barks at his mother to stay out of it. Everyone bickers.
Chloe needs to know the answer. "There's a chance that I'm going to have
another grandchild and my heart is pounding," Kate claims. Chloe thinks back
to sleeping with Daniel. On cue, he calls Kate. The doctor tells her that
Philip is at the hospital and she should get down there now.
walks into the pub with a bag full of expensive clothes and gifts. After
showing them off to Max and Chelsea, she admits to her brother that she has
already spent all of the money she received. Max breaks the news, "Tony's
dead." He explains and she is sure that this is her fault. Worrying about
Philip, she decides that she needs to see him and runs off.
arrives at the hospital and gives Philip a hug. He tells her how awful
Tony's death was, but guesses that she thinks this was his fault. She
doesn't think that at all. He admits that he deserves some of the blame. His
father has been there with him and was, relatively, supportive. Philip
wonders if all of this was set into motion before he and Tony were even
born. When Philip steps away, Melanie arrives. Steph wants to get rid of her
but Mel needs to talk to Philip. Stephanie taunts her about the project and
insists that it is dead.
at the pub, Max is left alone with Chelsea. She worries about Steph and
Philip and how dangerous he can be. They worry about a conflict between Mel
and Steph. Mel returns. "The project is over Max. It's done. We're done!"
and Lucas arrive at the hospital. Daniel tells them what happened and
explains that Philip won't be charged thanks to Nicole. After the doctor
wanders off, Kate tells her son to go home and keep his eye on Chloe. He's
happy at the thought of having another baby. His mother is much less
enthusiastic. She tells him that she wants Chloe to be a host for 'Hearth
and Home'. He reminds her that pregnant women are allowed on television and
hurries off. When Lucas gets back to the cabin, Chloe tells him that she's
not pregnant. "Not right now," he says with a smile, offering to try again,
promising that it will happen. Kate calls. He gives her the news. She thinks
it's for the best. After she hangs up, she pretends that she is still on the
phone and loudly discusses Chloe's possible pregnancy as Daniel walks by. He
approaches. "Chloe's pregnant?" he asks. She says 'no' and she makes some
pointed remarks about what a caring doctor he is. They talk about her meds
and she gets him to sign off on some so she will have his signature.
Meanwhile, Lucas tells Chloe how great she would be as a host. Plus, they
would be working together. She agrees to take the job.
takes Philip back to her new apartment. He thanks her for being there for
him. Only twelve hours ago the fuel project was the most important thing in
his life, but now it seems worthless. He's fatalistic and worries that he is
already like his father and Stefano. He takes a nap and dreams of Tony's
death only to wake up in shock. She reminds him it's not his fault. It
doesn't feel that way to him.
the mansion, Stefano takes a drink before smashing his glass. "Get the hell
out of my house you lying bitch!" he yells at Nicole. Elvis orders his
father to apologize or he will walk out. Stefano tells him to go ahead. As
EJ holds Nicole, Stefano tears into her, accusing her of dishonoring Tony's
memory. She had one chance to show her loyalty to the family but all she did
was laugh in their faces. Elvis refuses to allow him to talk like this. "The
most egregious thing is the lies to you!" Stefano shouts at his son. EJ
doesn't understand. Stefano brings up the convent and says he doesn't
believe any of her excuses. "You lost one son today. Keep going if you want
to lose another," EJ snaps. Father and son argue and shout. Elvis doesn't
care if Nicole is having an affair with the Mother Superior, it still
wouldn't be any of Stefano's business. "I am your enemy," Stefano growls at
Nicole. He leaves the couple alone so Nicole can tell him the truth.
EJ tells Nicole not to worry and shows her the note
that Tony left. She doesn't know what it means. Elvis begins questioning her
about what she has been doing. He can sense that something is wrong and
knows there was tension between her and Tony and now he's dead. "If that's
what you think, maybe we should call off this wedding," she pouts. He
agrees; he's sick of her threatening to leave whenever things don't go her
way. She says everyone is mad with grief. Elvis says his father was right
and she and Tony clearly couldn't stand each other. Nicole doesn't know why
Tony is suddenly a saint when he was just trying to destroy the family. That
doesn't matter to EJ because he's family. "You have absolutely no idea what
you've done," EJ sneers at her. He accuses her of letting Philip kill Tony
and walk away. Screaming, he accuses her of having a reason of being with
Philip. She refuses to lie to put Philip away. Maybe if he holds their child
for awhile, he'll feel better, she suggests. He doesn't think so.
answers the door. Anna slaps him across the face as soon as he sees her
standing there. She refuses to come in. "I know it was murder and I know it
was you that killed him," she says. Stefano blames Philip and Nicole. Anna
accuses him of lying to himself and repeats that this is really his fault.
She wanted to come and look at him in the eye one last time just to tell him
how much she hates him. He tells her they need to be family now. "I will
make the arrangements alone," she says, refusing to let him have any more to
do with this. She wants him to go to his grave without a chance to say
goodbye. "I have peace and you never will," she vows. "I may never have
peace, but I will have revenge," he intones.
April 3, 2009
I Don't Learn From My Mistakes.
runs into Will at the Java Cafe. She just registered at the local high
school. "I hear this is where all the cool kids hang," she says. He laughs
but he's bummed out by something his mom did. She adopted a kid just when
her other kids need her the most. Mia's sure she must have had a good
reason. Will doesn't think his mother ever has a good reason for doing
things. Mia makes him promise to love and look after his new little sister.
He asks her to go and see the baby with him.
meets with a nun at home. The sister isn't happy that Sami is still hiding
the truth from the baby's father. Sami explains that the story she told is
working. The nun worries that it won't last. After she leaves, Mia and Will
arrive. The women have met before. As he shows Mia around, Sami flashes back
to changing the results of Will's paternity test. "I don't learn from my
mistakes," she says to herself. Sami asks them to look after Grace while she
goes to see EJ. She runs off and tells them to call if they need something.
Mia keeps her distance from the baby. Will finds that odd. The baby starts
crying. He rocks the crib but it makes things worse so she takes over and
Grace calms down. She cries again. Will picks her up and asks Mia if she
wants to hold her.
and Hope are relieved to discover that Philip will not be charged. Roman
walks in and they share the news. Bo flashes to his vision of Hope and Roman
in bed. Roman begins telling his brother how amazing Hope is. Bo asks him to
stay away from her until he says otherwise. Roman's startled but Bo refuses
to explain. When Bo heads over to the Java Cafe, Sami arrives. She reminds
him of when she faked Will's paternity and asks if that caused lasting
problems for her son. Bo doesn't think that Will will ever get over it.
Caroline lied to him for years and it had lasting effects. She decides to do
the right thing and rushes off. Back at the pub, Hope finds Roman at the
bar. He tries to run off. She guesses that Bo must have talked to him. He
claims he is just in a hurry and walks out.
the mansion, Stefano weeps to EJ, furious that Anna has walked away with
Tony's ashes and left them no chance to grieve properly. He blames Nicole,
'the traitorous whore' for Philip walking free. Elvis forbids him to talk
like that and reminds him of how happy he was when she gave him an heir.
Nicole has been good and patient with them, he insists. "I want to think
about the son I just lost, not you," Stefano says. Elvis tells him that he
and Nicole will be exchanging their vows somewhere else. "Great," Stefano
shrugs. He tells his son that, one day, he will think as he does. "You will
know who Nicole is and you will be a broken man," he warns.
is down at the pier. She thinks over the accident until Brady arrives. She
tells him that Philip won't be a problem for them anymore. Brady wonders why
she is so upset. "I may have killed my future with EJ," she says. Now she is
tainted in EJ and Stefano's eyes. "I think it's for the best," Brady says.
She doesn't agree. He doesn't like seeing her in pain all of the time but
wishes her good luck. Nicole doesn't need luck, she needs things to be
returns to the mansion. Elvis drinks by the fire. She wonders if he still
thinks she's failed to live up to the DiMera code by failing to send Philip
away. He's sure that Philip isn't innocent and there are reasons that she
was at the pier. She cries; it hurts her that he has no faith in her. He
wants to be alone. "I need to know if the wedding is still off," she says.
It's not. She's surprised. Elvis explains that this is about Sydney and adds
that, perhaps, in time, they can get over their differences and reconcile.
Stefano stands in the doorway and listens as Elvis tells Nicole that the
most responsible thing to do for the child is get married. Nicole asks
Stefano if he will give them his blessing. He breathes deep and then says he
won't turn his back on her; they have his blessing. Stefano still refuses to
believe that his son's death was an accident. "Philip and his whole family
will pay for Tony's death," he promises.
arrives at the hospital only to discover that Daniel has been assigned as
her new doctor. He tried to find someone else but the closest doctor he can
refer her to is a hundred miles away. A nurse announces the exam room is
ready. They think back to their sex filled afternoons and then go in. She
gets in her hospital gown. After he gives her the going over, she tells him
that she's glad they've moved on. He says that he made the wrong choice
getting involved with her but he's learned from it and would never do
anything like that again. Daniel wants her to have a long and happy life
with Lucas. She asks him what he wants and deserves. He'd like to be loved
someday. She's sure he will be.
uses Daniel's prescription note to learn how to forge his signature. Once
she has perfected it, Chloe calls and asks her if she wants to talk about
her new job. Kate agrees to meet up with her later. After hanging up, she
calls Chelsea and asks her out for lunch and a tour around the hospital.
Nicole and Sydney arrive at the hospital for the baby's
checkup. She's there to see the new doctor and asks Daniel if he knows who
he is. "Here he is," Daniel says. When she turns around, Dr. Baker is
smiling at her. Meanwhile, back at the mansion, Stefano is sure that nothing
will bring his son back so they need to forge ahead with courage and not let
the tragedy mar the marriage. "I will not let anything interfere with your
happiness," he promises. EJ squints.
