I Blew It Big Time.
wakes up at the convent and drowsily looks around for Rafe. As she panics,
she bumps into a nun who informs her that Rafe just left for a meeting. Sami
has a bad feeling, like she will never see him again. Later, Rafe returns
and tells Sister Theresa that Sami will have to get used to him not being
around. His meeting with his boss was a disaster. She surmises that he could
lose everything for the sake of Sami. After the nun leaves, he waits around
for Sami. When she arrives, she demands some answers. He tells her that they
can stay there a few more days and, lying, tells her that everything is okay
between he and his boss.
goes to see Bo at home. He needs to know what happened with the shooting. "I
blew it big time," Bo admits. He blames himself for not telling Hope about
his vision. Abe needs an explanation. Bo tells him about the vision that may
have saved Theo's life. Then he explains his second vision and Abe tells him
that what happened wasn't his fault.
goes to see Kayla at the hospital and begs for forgiveness. Kayla forgives
her and asks her over for a hug. She tells her not to blame herself for
this. As Hope sits down, she tells her about Bo's vision of the shooting and
how he kept it to himself... except for one person. Steve walks in. They
stare at him. Kayla asks him if he knew. He asks for a moment alone. Once
Hope is gone, he admits that he knew and they tried to prevent this. He asks
her what he can do to make up for this. They cry as he climbs in bed and
cuddles with her. She's just grateful to be alive.
Hope gets home, Bo has a surprise for her - tickets to Hawaii. She turns
them down; she isn't prepared to forgive either of them and orders him never
to be so dismissive of her feelings again. She kicks herself for making a
rookie mistake by laying down her gun. Bo tells her just to blame him for
everything. She needs to make some changes so she is moving in with her
parents. They're away right now so she can have time alone to think. He
doesn't understand. She runs upstairs to pack. He chases her around and asks
for an explanation. Hope can't explain. Bo assumes she is trying to punish
him when he needs her the most. "I'm sorry," she weeps, walking out.
arrives at Titan and tells Phillip that, after hearing him talk to his
father about Melanie, he's not the man she thought he was. She's never
threatened to bury someone like he has. "So you're a nicer person than I
am," Philip says. He reminds her of how valuable the patent is and what a
pain Mel is. He'll do whatever it takes to keep the project. She's shocked
that he would destroy someone over money. He accuses her of resenting his
being rich; he refuses to let 'some lowlife little bitch' take advantage of
him. He yells at her until she yells back. "This company didn't get to where
it is by playing nice," he says. Now that she has a better idea of who he
is, he says, maybe she should walk away. She thinks he must want her to
break up with him and tells him that he has no respect for her. He says
she's wrong. She repeats that she is falling in love with him, and not just
a fantasy of him, but the man she knows he could be. They continue to argue
about what's right and wrong. He tells her to stop eavesdropping on his
conversations and attempting to reform him. After he stomps away, she
calls EJ to leave another message threatening to bring her project back to
Titan if he won't call her back. Max wanders over and asks her what trouble
she is getting into this time. She tells him that she is giving the project
to the DiMeras. He thinks she's screwing everything up. She brings up Philip
and Steph sleeping together and then tells him to stop breathing down her
neck. Before she can run off, he stops her to ask what this is really all
about. He wonders if she is in love with Philip. She claims she's not, but
he's easy to look at... and rich. Max is sure that Philip has no feelings
for her. She tells him not to be so sure; Steph is too 'schoolteachery' for
him and he'll get bored. "I'm going to play EJ against Philip and it's going
to be a rip-roaring success," she says. He doubts it. He throws some mixed
metaphors at her and she counters by announcing that she will take Philip or
take him down trying. She plans to use the fuel project as bait to trap him.
the DiMera mansion, EJ is laying into Brady for always hovering around
Nicole. As he demands to know what is going on, Nicole screams that there is
something wrong with the baby. Elvis and Brady rush over as she explains
that the child is not breathing. They rush her to the hospital. Lexi takes
her in to check her out and EJ cradles Nicole. She thinks back to taking
Sami's baby. "She can't die. Not after everything I did to bring her home to
us," she whispers. Brady watches them as Nicole cries that her life will be
over without the baby. After EJ leaves to get refreshments, Nicole turns to
Brady and tells him that this is all her fault. He thinks it's all random
and no one is to blame. If the baby dies, she doesn't want to live anymore.
As she cries in his arms, Elvis returns and tells Brady that Nicole only
needs one pair of shoulders to cry on. He demands to know what is going on
between them. Brady explains that he is just obeying the 12-step program and
healing old wounds. "You're an idiot," EJ says. Brady excuses himself.
Nicole tells Elvis that she's been a fool and she screws up everything she
touches. "I have to yell you everything," she says.

The Week After Never Would Be Perfect.
the hospital, Nicole tells EJ that she can't keep him in the dark anymore:
This is all her fault. He thinks that's madness. Lexi returns before she can
explain. "Is our baby going to live?" Nicole asks. Lexi tells them that the
baby is fine; she just wants to run some tests and needs more information
about Nicole's family history. As she runs through the possibilities, Nicole
becomes exasperated at the thought of SIDs. She nearly faints. Elvis holds
her up. They sit down and she is about to say something when Stefano storms
in. "You irresponsible idiot! What did you do to her?" he demands. EJ blows
up at his father for 'waddling in' and blaming Nicole. Stefano mumbles
Italian profanities to himself until Lexi returns, giggling and telling them
again that the baby is fine. The parents run in to see her. "There's
something wrong there," Stefano mutters to his daughter. She scoffs but he's
sure there is something nefarious going on. Lexi tells him he's blowing this
up and he concedes he may have overreacted. After some browbeating, he
agrees to apologize.
shows up at the Kiriakis mansion and runs into Philip. She seems upset but
she says it's nothing. He leaves and she goes in to see Lucas and Kate.
They're eager to set a wedding date. Kate suggests Valentine's Day. Victor
drifts in and suggests they put it off. "The week after never would be
perfect," he jokes. Chloe agrees to Valentine's Day while Kate and Victor
bicker. He's sure this whole thing will go up in smoke before it can happen.
Kate looks at the kissing couple and worries.
turns up on Melanie's doorstep and pushes his way in. He accuses her of
being jealous of he and Stephanie. "How hot do you think you are?" she asks.
He announces that he and Steph are finished. She doubts it. He says they
broke up... and it was over her. Mel hates to see true love fizzle and die.
Philip admits that he was a jerk and then warns her that if she takes the
patent to the DiMeras, she will lose what she really wants - him. She shoots
back sarcastically at 'Pumpkin' Kiriakis and asks him what he would do to
get the patent back if the deal with the DiMeras was done. He starts to blow
up at the suggestion but she cuts him off, saying that he always wants what
he can't have. A man comes to the door and serves her an injunction. Philip
explains that it forces her not to take her patent anywhere else. She tells
him that he may have won this round but not the war. "Honey, we don't have
to be at war; we're on the same team," he says. She's not pleased. "You're
stuck with me pumpkin," he says, walking out.
at the hospital, Nicole cradles the baby and tells her that she almost told
EJ the truth. She would have done it to make sure she was healthy, but
luckily she didn't have to. "Mommy's secret is going to be safe forever,"
she says. EJ just happens to be standing in the doorway when she says this.
He walks in and asks her what she was talking about. "Girl stuff," she
claims. He tells her that he feels blessed to have her and the baby. She
promises to be with him forever. They go home and he gets a call from Mel.
She tells him that his foot dragging may have cost him the project. She
needs to see him immediately. After he walks off, Dr. Baker shows up on her
doorstep. "What the hell do you want?" she asks. Meanwhile, Melanie meets EJ
in an alleyway. She tells him that they won't have a relationship if he
doesn't solve her problem. "Eliminate Philip," she orders.
the hospital, Daniel is giving Kayla a checkup when she suggests that he
take part in the charity auction for the hospital. He doesn't want to be
auctioned off. As he awkwardly walks out, Stephanie comes in. Kayla asks her
daughter what's wrong. Steph tells her about her problems with Philip and
how she can't be with someone dangerous like him. Kayla used to say the same
thing about Steve but advises her daughter not to settle for someone who she
can't respect. Kayla says that love can change a person, but it probably
can't change Philip enough to make him right for her.
greets Kate as she arrives at Chez Rouge for the hospital charity auction.
Kate tells her that they've set a wedding date and asks her to do the
catering. Maggie turns her down. Lucas and Chloe wander over and Maggie
tries to be polite. When Kate and Lucas walk off, Maggie digs into Chloe.
The diva repeats that she and the doctor are finished forever. Chloe and
Lucas begin to dance. She notices Daniel and Victor walk in and stares at
them. Kate stands up and makes a speech about her cancer treatment and how
excellent the care at the hospital is. She asks everyone to open up their
checkbooks and give. Maggie starts the silent auction. The guests circle
around the room. Stefano arrives and asks Kate why she didn't put herself on
the auction block. She doesn't want to be for sale tonight. He takes her
hand and asks her out. She turns him down and sighs. As the evening winds
on, Maggie discovers a check for $100,000. It's an anonymous donation made
in Kate's name. Everyone claps.
Chloe is called up to sing, Victor begins to snipe at her and Daniel snaps
at him, telling him to shut up. Victor wonders if there is something going
on between them. Daniel tells him he's sick of these insinuations. Victor is
worried of the disaster that Chloe could bring to him, warning him that
Lucas is already doomed now that he's set a date. Everyone listens as Chloe
sings. Daniel stares into her eyes and begins to clap. She runs off as soon
as she finishes. Philip arrives and tells his father that everything went as
planned. Now he has 'the fox in the cage'. He looks around for Stephanie and
soon bumps into her. Meanwhile, Daniel tries calling Chloe to tell her that
he loves her. She's outside in tears. Lucas approaches her. "I'm sorry Lucas
but I can't marry you," she cries.
February 11, 2009
an alleyway, Melanie tells EJ to eliminate Philip. He asks if she means he
should kill him. She just means that they have to do whatever it takes to
keep control of her patent. He whips out his phone and makes a call. She
thinks he's putting a hit out on Philip and starts to panic. When he mocks
her for taking this seriously, she calls him a jerk. He explains that he has
a 'foolproof plan'. He tells her that getting a copy of the blueprints will
be enormously helpful. She cockily assures him that it won't be a problem to
hurries over to Titan and sneaks in so she can hack into the computer. She
gets stuck when she's asked for Philip's password and the machine begins
bleeping at her. Pretending to be Steph, she calls security and tells them
not to come. She finally hacks into the system and laughs. "EJ you are so
going to thank me," she says.
Chez Rouge, Maggie strides over to Daniel to tell him to stay away from
Chloe and Lucas. He says it's none of her business and trudges off. He
returns to the hospital to check in on Kayla. She asks him how the auction
went and teases him. He seems lonely to her. "Nah," he says. He steps out to
make a call to Chloe. When he returns, Kayla assumes he was making a date
and digs for information. She's concerned that he hasn't been his
'effervescent self' lately and wants to see him smile again.
finds Victor sitting at the bar. Victor doesn't want to talk but Stefano
thinks they need to discuss Melanie. They issue some polite threats before
Stefano leaves. Brady drifts over, two hours late, and apologizes,
explaining that there was a problem with Nicole. "I don't want to hear that
girl's name cross your lips again," Victor forbids. Brady wishes he would
let him decide who to be friends with. "Where's your family loyalty? Where's
your pride? Where's your brain?" Victor prods. Brady refuses to shut the
door on a friend. Victor threatens to shut some doors on him and walks out.
arrives at Chez Rouge to see Philip. They sit down and she explains that she
went to her mother for advice. Kayla thinks she should dump him. Steph wants
to say goodbye, but she can't because she loves him. They kiss and then
notice that everyone else is gone. Music plays and they dance and flirt. She
leaves to change so they can go out. His henchman arrives and Philip pays
him off for giving Melanie the fake injunction. They laugh at how scared she
was. Stephanie watches this from across the room. When she walks over, she
accuses him of ambushing Mel. He makes excuses and refuses to apologize.
"Goodbye Philip," she announces, walking out.
Chloe repeats to Lucas that she can't marry him. He needs a reason but all
of her excuses are lame. She loves him, she says. That doesn't explain
anything to him. She wanted to be a good mother and wife, but the best thing
she can do for him is to walk away. As she lists all of her failed
relationships, he begs her to stop. Lucas thinks that what they have is
perfect and special; she could never break his heart. "I already have," she
cries. He asks for an explanation. "I'm a horrible person," she insists. He
demands to know what she's done. She thinks he deserves better and has to
trust that this is what's best for him. He doesn't believe that giving up
their future is what's best. Chloe hands him the ring he gave her but he
refuses to take it. "I'm so sorry," she cries, running off.
goes to Daniel's. As soon as he opens the door, she begs him to run away
with her tonight.
Baker shows up at the mansion to issue a new threat to Nicole. She tells him
that their deal is off and threatens to have him locked up. He says he has
nothing to lose. "How about your life?" she challenges. He scoffs. She tells
him that they already had to take the baby to the hospital. He tells her
she's not being noble, no matter how hard she tries to convince herself.
When she opens the door for him to go, he refuses to budge. They continue to
threaten each other until he finally leaves. She instantly gets on her
phone. "I need your help," she begs.
shows up at the mansion to see Brady. She tells him the baby is fine but Dr.
Baker won't go away. He asks how much she needs to make him go away. She
needs $10,000, and, since he's a trust fund baby, that must be small change
for him. He can't help. She asks him to borrow from Titan. He can't and he's
heard all of this before. When he warns her not to get more attached to the
baby, she blows up at him, claiming that the baby might not even be alive
without her because Sami... She stops herself and he asks what Sami has to
do with this. He doesn't get an explanation, just more complaints. "How
would not helping that baby be the right thing to do?" she asks him. He
wrestles with what to do, knowing that helping her could lead to being
kicked out of the family by Victor. Nonetheless, he can't say no to her. She
hugs him. He walks across the room and opens the safe to get her some money.
"You're a life saver," she says, hugging him as Victor walks in. "What the
hell is going on here?" he demands.
returns to the mansion and Stefano asks him how the meeting with Melanie
went. Elvis is sure that she took the bait. Stefano is still concerned
because he knows what a 'nut burger' Melanie is. They toast to this working.
When he sees the maid taking milk up for the baby, EJ offers to do it and
asks where Nicole is. The maid tells him she's out.

Prepare to Feel Like a Jerk.
takes a wad of cash from Victor's safe and hands it to Nicole. She thanks
him but then Victor walks in and demands to know what is going on. Brady
says the reason for this cash giveaway is private. Victor's money is private
too and he wonders how Nicole could have gone through the DiMera fortune
already. Brady claims that he owes Nicole money. He offers to pay his
grandfather back. Victor refuses. Brady threatens to leave with her and the
money. Victor's offended. Nicole walks out and Brady continues to argue with
his grandfather about trust. Brady claims that he's glad to have been caught
– now he can be really honest. If Victor has no faith in him, he's not sure
that he should be working for him. His grandfather doesn't like this
challenge and continues to snipe at Nicole until Brady announces that he's
leaving and walks out the door.
agitated EJ calls Nicole, furious that she has left the baby with the maid.
Dr. Baker suddenly walks into the mansion. Baker claims he is just there to
check on the baby and asks to speak with Nicole. When he's told that she's
not home, EJ adds that he would like him to leave her alone. Baker tells him
how proprietary baboons become over their children. This clarifies nothing
for EJ who really starts to wonder what's going on. Moments later, Nicole
arrives and EJ barks at her as she walks in. "Prepare to feel like a jerk,"
she shoots back, shoving the apnea monitor she bought into his arms. He
apologizes. She checks on the baby and then sits on his lap. Her phone
begins to ring and he grabs her purse to shut it off. She grabs it away,
claiming there is a surprise in it. She sends him upstairs while she steps
out. When she gets to the doorstep, Dr. Baker is waiting. She hands him the
cash and tells him this is over. He leaves with a threat. She vows never to
lose what she has.
stands by the pier and tries to stop himself from freaking out. Kate rushes
over to him to ask why Chloe ran off. He asks her to harass Philip instead.
She realizes something must have happened. "Chloe dumped me," he admits.
Kate wonders what he said to her and demands that he track her down and
apologize. He doesn't even understand what the problem is and forbids his
mother to do anything. She suggests that this might not be as serious as it
seems. Lucas blames himself for this and Kate blames herself too. "She was
unhappy and I didn't know it," he says, feeling like he wasn't good enough
shows up at Daniel's and asks him to run away with her tonight. He pulls her
in and asks her to calm down. She ended things with Lucas. Daniel doesn't
seem happy with the news since the news doesn't make her happy. Breaking
hearts doesn't make her happy, she explains. She wants to run away so they
don't have to sneak around; Lucas still doesn't know the reason why she
dumped him. The doctor refuses to run. He pours a drink and says it's good
that a decision was finally made. "You have got to do things for yourself,"
he says. He can't run away and he can't be the reason she broke up with
Lucas. Playing with her hair, he tells her that the world won't end. His
phone starts to ring. It's Kate. He doesn't answer. He tells Chloe how much
he needs her and asks her to stay. She turns him down. They kiss and he
leaves for work. She slumps on the couch and wonders where to go from there.
rushes over to the hospital to see Kate. She tells him how worried she is
about Lucas. One of the only things that has kept her stable lately has been
her son's newfound happiness. She can't imagine what could have destroyed
hacks into the computers at Titan to find the blueprint for her patent.
Before she can print it off, Philip pops up. "You just made a very big
mistake," he says. She thinks his eyes are mean and scrunchy when he's smug.
He shreds the blueprints and laughs; he set her up for this and it's all on
tape. She taunts him about the falling value of Titan stock and threatens to
make a public stink. He threatens to call the police. She repeats that he
doesn't want the bad publicity... or for her to go. He calls in security to
escort her out and tells her she's fired. "One of these days I'm going to
wipe that smug smile off your face," she warns.
runs into Lucas by the water. Lucas gruffly runs off. Chloe shows up and
demands to know what he said. He explains that Lucas seems upset, but he
walked away from the water, which is usually a good sign. When he asks her
to stay and talk, she remembers the prom. "Do you ever think you have to be
really stupid to be happy?" she asks. He gives a slight laugh and tells her
to take it a day at a time. She wishes today was over.
the Cheatin' Heart, Max talks to Nick on the phone. He promises to keep Mel
and the patent safe. Melanie arrives and tells Max about what Philip's done.
He suggests that she talk to a lawyer but she refuses. She admits that she
was caught hacking into the computer. He thinks she should be glad she isn't
going to prison. As they sit at the bar, he pulls out the blueprints that
Nick sent him.
arrives at the mansion and tells his father about catching Melanie. Victor
is pleased until his son tells him that he didn't have her arrested. Philip
claims that, since they have the tape, they can have her arrested anytime.
"I think you and I basically disagree about the definition of 'nailing
her'," Victor growls. Philip enjoys the double entendre but claims he has no
attraction to Melanie.
