There was an accident and she died. Nicole says that she must be missing
some details and encourages her to give him the benefit of a doubt. Sami
finds her defense of Rafe totally weird and says that this must be because
of how she stood up for EJ. Sami sobs and says she is paying for all of the
horrible things she's done. Nicole insists that none of this is her fault.

Elvis goads him, accusing him of being a liar who keeps secrets. After their
little scene, Rafe goes into the pub to inform his sister that he is leaving
town. She assumes this must be because of Sami. He's grouchy and doesn't
want to explain. His boss calls so he leaves to take it and she sneaks out.
She storms over to the townhouse and walks in on Nicole and Sami. Nicole
excuses herself and Ari doesn't waste time. "I wanna know what you did to my
brother," she demands. Sami says this isn't her fault and shows her the
letter. Ari reads it and announces she has to go. Sami assumes this means
it's true. She talks it over with herself and decides she should give him
the chance to explain.
and Will make out in the park. Chad spots them and interrupts to tell them
that he is moving into the neighborhood and transferring to their school.

Kinsey arrives. She and Chad sit down and try to figure out a new strategy.
They return to the gym and she complains that this is all a 'time suck'.
Chad is sure that something must have happened while he was gone and he
wants to find out what it was. Meanwhile, Will and Mia sit down and she
apologizes for putting him in a weird position by not telling him that Chad
was coming to Salem High. He says it's okay; he just doesn't know why she
never told him before. With everything going on in his life, she didn't
think this was important. She promises that Chad means nothing to her.

visit since they missed the baby's party. When Theo looks in the baby's

Lexi and her father talk about how much it breaks his heart to see the
little boy unhappy. "Worry, worry, worry... that's all you do," she says. EJ
returns just as his sister is leaving. Once she's gone, Elvis tells his
father that he feels like his wife is keeping something from him. He also
ran into Rafe this morning and he seemed strange. "You're playing right into
my hands Senor Hernandez," Stefano gloats to himself after his son walks
off. Nicole returns. She tells Stefano that Sami is a 'heartbroken,
blubbering, red-faced mess'. Stefano cringes at the image and tells her to
relax - they nearly have Rafe out of town. He accuses her of being an
ingrate and orders her to express some gratitude to him for cleaning up
after the disasters that she's caused. She cries and tells him she doesn't
like hurting people. Although she's done horrible things, she regrets them.
He tells her that she will have to choose between her own happiness or
Sami's. "What are you two arguing about?" EJ asks as he comes in. Stefano
leaves and she says that she was just being insensitive about Grace and
wants their daughter to be the focus of their lives. As they hug, he stares
and Abe head over to the pub to see if they left the stuffed dog there. As
Abe makes calls, Rafe and Lexi talk about how hard Grace's death hit Nicole.
He searches around and finds the dog. Theo's thrilled. After the family
thanks him, he goes over to the cemetery and sits by Grace's grave. He tells
her that he has to leave and he can't tell her mother the truth, no matter
how much he wants to. When he returns to the pub, he corners his sister and
asks her where she went. She admits that she visited Sami and saw the
letter. He tells her not to stop him from running. "You know I have to do
this," he says.

DA Woods continue bickering and insulting each other. "Stay off the case.
Both of you," the DA repeats before he walks away. Woods walks over to the
pub and meets with Kate. He tells her that Victor has freed Daniel. She's
not thrilled but the DA insists that he will prove Daniel is guilty.

backs Daniel and expects everyone in the family to do the same. Bo tells him
they need to be impartial. "Family first!" Victor barks. They bring up

Kate in jail. "If that's where she belongs," Victor says. They inform him

have to get permission from Lucas. Justin begins tearing apart the DA's

accident so they can move on. "I can't tell you what you want to hear," he
says. No matter what he tells her, she will keep asking questions and there
are holes in his story he can never fix. More bickering ensues. He can't
believe she doesn't trust him after all the times he's saved her. Meredith
coming to town didn't reveal the truth about Emily, but the truth about

the cemetery and visits Grace's grave to tell her that it should have been
him with her and her mother instead of Rafe. His sister approaches. Lexi

to take care of," he says.
