Stephanie I'm worried about," she says. She tells him that she is totally
over Philip... but she kissed him last night. "Did I just ruin everything?"
she asks. He doesn't know what to say so she glosses over what happened and

call, she hits the wrong button and sees all the calls he's made to Nicole.

up wanted posters. "You're the one who helped Nicole escape," he says.

Bo joins Roman to strategize at the pub. Roman's more

end up alone.

the air between them. "You're going to admit you came back to Salem to steal
my husband?" Hope asks. Carly tells her that wasn't her intention. Hope
wants some enlightenment about her intentions. Carly assures her again that
she has no interest in Bo and suggests she try healing things with him once
she moves out. Hope isn't terribly impressed and says that, even if she's
not in the same house with Bo, he won't walk away from her. "I won't walk
away," Bo affirms as he walks in on them. Carly gives them some space. When
Bo sits down, Hope says that his continued involvement with the other woman
affects them. As she tries to leave, he kisses her and tells her how much he
loves her. She walks out.
and Victor are birdwatching. She teases him about Kate and assures him he
will have the last laugh. She explains that Kate is already burning up with
jealousy. Inside the mansion, Philip is leaving messages for Mel until his
mom storms in. She tells him that Viv is back and has attached herself to
Victor. "Could be he's looking to get married again," Philip suggests. "Not
to that old hag!" she blurts out. She never wanted to see Viv again. Philip
doesn't care either way, but he's sure his mother is afraid Viv will take
her place. Vivian and Victor walk in. "Philip... my baby!" Vivian cries as
she hugs him. Kate grimaces. Victor drags her out and tells her that Viv is
a 'breath of fresh air'. Kate reminds him about all of the misery the woman

and then kicks Kate out. Meanwhile, Philip sits down with Vivian and tells
her to drop the smile and tell him why she is really back.
the Java Cafe, Will is blaming Gabi for helping Nicole escape. Ari comes in
and stands up for her. Gabi tells her not to bother and walks out. Ari
follows her and they begin arguing. Ari tells her that things aren't always
what they seem to be. The drugs may be hers, but she is not dealing or
using. Gabi doesn't get it and storms off. Ari calls Roman and requests a
sit down. They meet at the pub and she explains that she has a new boss now
and she's eager to take him down. He wonders why she is so enthusiastic all
of a sudden. She just wants to put all of this behind her. He warns her not
to take any unnecessary risks.
calls Elvis. She tells him Syd is safe and she's sorry things ended badly
for them. All she tried to do was protect him and Syd but he was abusive the
whole time. "This is a goodbye call," she says. He tells her she's out of
her mind. She admits that the kidnapping wasn't planned, but after hearing
him arguing with Sami, she couldn't leave the child there with them. Nicole
tells him he threw away any claim he had over Syd when he threw her out of
the house. He says that she will be caught and starts getting irate. She's
sick of talking to him and hangs up. EJ calls the police to see if they
traced the call. They already lost the signal. Stefano comes in and offers

making a terrible mistake by putting his faith in the cops. EJ tells him
that if he tries getting involved, he will never be able to see his
grandchildren again. Stefano wants to prove how much he cares by being the
one to bring the baby home. EJ refuses to allow it. After he walks out, Kate
returns. Stefano tells her his son is making a terrible mistake and he feels
like he could lose everything. She tells him to brace himself for some news.
When she tells him Vivian is back, he chuckles, especially after he hears
she's getting cozy with Victor.

I Started Out Life As A Stolen Embryo.
and Sami are at her place searching for leads. He comes up with another dead
end. Sami is still determined to make Nicole wish she was never born.
Meanwhile, at the pub, EJ walks in on Ari and Roman's sit-down. They cover.
She tells EJ her sister feels awful for helping Nicole. After she leaves, EJ
informs Roman that he has some news. He tells him about the call from Nicole
and then they call Rafe and Sami over to tell them. She's impressed that
Elvis is working with the police. Whenever the phone rings, Sami nearly
explodes. It turns out that the Salem PD failed to trace the call from
Nicole. Sami screeches and stomps and weeps. Rafe calms her down. She rants
and pouts in a chair as EJ stares. When she's left alone, EJ sits with her
and assures her that they will get their daughter back. "I hope we can put
everything between you and I behind us," he says.
the mansion, Vivian wants to take a picture of Philip with her phone. He
refuses. "You're not my mother! You never were and you never will be," he
says. She talks about the joy of having him grow inside her and wishes he
never had to get stuck in the middle of so much chaos. He tells her to stay
out of his life. She gives him a sob story about how much she has always
cared and wanted to be the mother he never had. He's still not impressed and
wants her gone. "I'm not going anywhere," she says.
the hospital, Nathan is treating Steph's sprained ankle. She seems to like
him touching her ankle a little too much so he asks what's going on. He
thinks things are awkward. She thinks Mel has been telling him that she has
the hots for him. Nate confesses that she is someone he 'could potentially
want to be with', but he doesn't want all the drama. She asks him what would
happen if she does have a thing for him. That makes things more awkward. He
stutters and then tells her that she's amazing but Mel is the person for
him. Before she can walk away, he stops her and apologizes if he led her on.
She wishes him good luck and leaves.
walks into the Cheatin' Heart with flyers for Sydney. He bumps into Mel. She
babbles until he tells her he broke up with Ari again. She guesses it was
over Nicole. Brady defends Nicole, much to Mel's chagrin. "You can't choose
who you fall in love with," he tells her. That shuts her up. Ari walks in
and Mel makes herself scarce. The ex couple bickers about Nicole and she
hopes he can get through to her. Across the room, Mel gabs to her new friend
about how gorgeous Nathan is. Philip walks in. Mel gulps. Her pal leaves and
Mel goes to the bar to see Philip. He tries to push her away but she wants
to know what's bothering him. Philip tells her about his life as a stolen
embryo in Vivian's uterus. "How could I be a success if I started out life
as a stolen embryo?" he asks. She understands; she had a tough childhood
too. Mel takes his hand. As they get close to kiss, Nate walks in and his
Cleveland, Nicole packs up and is about to run off with Syd when her
landlady, Marge, stops her at the door. "What's the hurry Mrs. DiMera?" she
asks. Nicole tries to get rid of her but it fails so she tells her that
she's been abused. Marge won't let her leave until she gives her money to
keep quiet. Nicole warns her that calling the cops could be bad for her
rather dubious business. Growling, Marge tells her to get out. Nicole goes
to the bus station to get her fake passports. The guy takes the rest of her
money. Now she can't pay for bus tickets. Dejected, she sits down and some
woman begins chatting to her baby. Nicole lets her make goo goo faces at Syd
so she can swipe her phone while she's not looking. After the woman leaves,
Nicole assures Syd that they can have a great life in Canada... but she'll
miss Brady. She starts to worry that he might be in trouble and calls him.
She tells him that she and the baby are okay but she's worried about him.
He's the only person besides Syd who she cares about. "Come home right now,"
he begs. As he starts talking her around, she tears up and the phone battery
dies. "Sydney, what should I do?" she asks. Meanwhile, Brady goes to the pub
to tell everyone that he just talked to Nicole and he's hoping she'll come

board the bus. She won't give the child to the police so she wonders what to
do. First, she nearly calls EJ, then Brady and finally...

let him out early. He tells his son that he's sorry and will never hurt him
again. Will informs him that Sami has lost her baby... again. Will fills in
the details and explains that Chloe must have told Nicole that Sami was
pregnant. Meanwhile, Chloe shows up at the hospital and tells Daniel that
the kidnapping is all her fault because she turned her back on Nicole. The
doctor tells her that she's not responsible for making Nicole insane. As
soon as he leaves, Lucas arrives and begins berating her for ruining Sami's
life and everyone else's. While he yells at her, Daniel returns and makes
excuses for Chloe, telling Lucas he might want to focus on doing something
useful instead of laying blame. After Lucas is gone, Chloe thanks Daniel for
his help. "I would slay dragons for you," he says.
the pub, Brady tells Sami about his call from Nicole and suggests she might
come back. Sami is hopeful, but EJ is furious. He tells them all that Nicole
is crazy and he's sick of Brady acting like a hero. The two men scream and
bellow until Rafe stops them. Sami still thinks that Nicole is crazy and
desperate and won't be coming back. Rafe gets a lead on the call that Nicole
made to Brady. Brady thinks they should all go to Cleveland but EJ refuses
to let him get involved. Brady and Elvis keep bickering until Rafe stops the
'idiots' again. Sami hopes Nicole is trying to call her. Elvis tells Sami
she's deluded if she thinks Nicole will ever call her. A call comes in from

phone. After, she chats and fakes speaking French with Mia, who tells her
how wonderful she is. Maggs goes on a walk and bumps into Lucas on the pier.
He tells her that he's been acting like a jerk and then complains about
Chloe and his persistent mistakes. He admits that he's really the one who
betrayed Sami's trust and it's his fault that all of this has happened.
She's glad he's starting to take responsibility.
flips out when he walks into the Cheatin' Heart and catches Mel and Philip
nearly kissing. Philip says he deserves to know the truth. Nate wants to
punch him but Mel takes him aside. He asks her if she would have kissed
Philip if he hadn't just walked in. "I have feelings for both of you," she
admits. He thinks this is twisted and can't believe anything she says
anymore. He storms off. Mel weeps. Philip comforts her. She feels like an
indecisive flake. He smirks. She thanks him for standing up for her. Philip
says he wants her in his life for all the right reasons. Mel points out that
they've never made it for more than a day and a half together. Besides, she
still has feelings for Nathan. He still refuses to let her go.

should wait. She tells him she used to be a tough cookie but Lawrence scared
her... and so does Vivian. She thanks Bo for protecting her and making her
feeling strong again. They hug. Philip walks in and sees them together. Bo
introduces his brother to Carly. "Were you going to marry my brother before
or after my father?" he asks her. She decides it's time to leave and heads

for a beer. He informs him that Vivian showed up at the mansion. Bo gulps
and his brother tells him he's now stuck in the middle of a 'mommy war'.

the pub, EJ rants at everyone that Nicole will never call again. Nicole
calls, but she passes out before she can say anything. Sami can hear the
baby crying and yelps into the phone. EJ grabs the phone and yells into it,
telling her she will pay for this. Rafe gets the FBI to trace the call and
says the cops are on the way to get her. Sami wonders why Nicole wasn't
talking. EJ calls for the jet and they all run off. When they board, Sami

outraged. Meanwhile, Rafe and a cop talk to witnesses who claim they saw no
baby. "Who has my baby? Where is she?" Sami frets.
At the Java Cafe, Mel tells Ari that she's realized
that she's not very mature. Mia comes over and says she can't remember what
kind of muffin she ordered. They snipe at each other. Mia walks off and
stares at the poster of Sydney. Mel apologizes to her and then returns to
Ari to babble about her complicated love life. Ari tells her to pick the guy
who floats her boat, not the one she would elect to the Supreme Court. Mel
insists that Nate isn't a stick in the mud and she's wrong if she wants
Philip. Carly comes in and finds Mia at the counter. She tells her that she
is moving in to Maggie's today and begins asking her a million questions.
