In the Traditional Sense.
the pier, Melanie tells Philip that he can 'get back in the saddle' and be
'king of the hill' if he dumps Stephanie. He refuses. "Then your loss is EJ
DiMera's gain," she says. He thinks she's playing a dangerous game. She
accuses him of blowing everything for his girlfriend and reminds him that
Steph only likes his nice side while she likes all of his sides. They're two
of a kind and, together, they could come close to perfection. He thinks
she's out of her mind. She repeats that he can have a lot of money, his
father's respect, and her, if only he drops Steph. Philip shakes his head
and calls her a 'bitch'. He threatens to do everything in his power to
destroy her. "God I hope so," she sighs as he strolls away.
returns to the mansion and finds Nicole already getting ready for bed. She
begins to kiss him and asks him to make love to her. He reminds her that
it's too soon since she just had a baby. "Yes, in the traditional sense,"
she says, kissing him and pushing him onto the bed. They snuggle up and get
'creative' until the baby wakes up. As Nicole gets some milk, Roman calls
him. Elvis worries about when Sami is returning; his son misses her so much
he cries himself to sleep. Roman says they are doing all they can. Nicole
overhears all of this. Elvis explains that the killer has been caught and
Sami will be back. Nicole launches into a rant about how she will soon
become an afterthought in his life once Samantha is back. He insists that
she has nothing to do with them. Nicole reminds him of how Sami loves to
stir up trouble. He promises that she will never come between them. They
feed the baby together until his phone vibrates. It's Stefano. She tells him
to take it while she feeds the child. After he walks out with the phone, she
wonders how she will keep her nemesis from ruining everything. She goes to
bed and falls asleep. When she wakes up, she finds the baby gone. EJ walks
in with the baby in his arms and stares at her. He announces that they are
in 'a nightmare of monumental proportions'. He threatens her with a
'terrible revenge' for what she's done and orders her to pack up and leave
while he takes his baby to see her real mother. Nicole snaps out of it. It
was only a dream.
walks out of the courtroom and hands Bo her badge. Before she can walk away,
he stops her to say how sorry he is. He offers to do whatever he can but she
reminds him that there is nothing he can do. This is about more than losing
her badge, she adds. "Isn't there some sort of protocol for us too?" he
asks. He loves her and wants to make up. She can't see a way out of this. He
continues begging her to come home with him but she continues refusing and
walks away from him.
the pub, Max is confused when Chelsea suggests they should be more than
friends. "I'm a normal person with normal needs. Why shouldn't I want
something more?" she blurts out. They sit down and she blathers. Max is
still confused but tries to clarify his feelings. He tells her that he isn't
interested in Stephanie anymore and begins talking about his 'out of
control' feelings. He admits to Chelsea that he's had feelings for her for
awhile. After watching her with Theo, he doesn't know how he ever could have
ended things with her. They kiss. Melanie pops up and Chelsea decides to
make herself scarce. Max gives a goofy laugh as she leaves. Mel gives an
even goofier laugh and teases her brother. "You've traded up. I approve!"
Mel says. He doesn't want to talk to her, but that's no deterrent. She tells
him about how she is playing Philip and what a fun adrenaline rush it is.
goes to see her mother at the hospital. The family worries that Hope will be
suspended for the shooting. Kayla worries that Hope's marriage could also be
in trouble. Steph pouts and talks about Philip and how much she wanted a
relationship with him before she discovered his ruthless side. Patch tells
her to end things for good. She pouts more and tells him to leave her alone.
"Philip and I are over. Done," she insists. He just wants her to be happy
and gives her a hug. Deciding to get out of their way, she leaves and her
parents continue to worry about Hope. Roman arrives with bad news: Hope has
been suspended. His phone rings and he leaves. Kayla whips out her phone,
refusing to let Bo and Hope lose everything because of her. Steve tells her
she needs to let this go and concentrate on recovering.
arrives at Titan and remembers that he was supposed to meet with Steph. He
calls her and leaves a message. She soon shows up and tells him that she
isn't interested in him and accuses him of being obsessed with Mel. He
claims that he can't stand her; he only wants her for the fuel project. He
then proceeds to mock Stephanie for her lack of ambition. Stopping himself,
he apologizes and explains that he cares about her but he has to do what's
right for his career. She wishes he could be kind and gentle. He kisses her
and tells her that he wants to be with her. She shakes her head and walks

The Jig Is Up!
meets with EJ at the pier. She's drowsy. He's annoyed; he thinks she's been
up to something with Philip. Yanking her coffee out of her hands, he demands
to know how much Philip knows. She doesn't know what he knows but assures
him that she has handled him like a pro. Elvis thinks she's a child and
tells her that his research team is working on cracking her code right now.
"You are completely disposable," he says before accusing her of using this
deal as leverage with Philip. She claims that she is over Philip's dimples
and is willing to do anything to prove her loyalty to the DiMeras. Elvis
begins feeling her up and warns her that if you wage war, you can lose. He
runs down the stairs of the mansion with an apple in his mouth. His father
asks him why he's in such a rush. Philip claims he needs to get to work to
close the Kaiser account. Victor tells him that Brady already closed it.
Philip is annoyed: that was his account. Brady explains that he didn't mean
to close his deal. Philip flies off the handle and a sarcastically tells his
father to just give Brady his office. He and Victor bicker and snipe. Victor
is uneasy to leave the fuels project in Philip's hands. He wants Brady to
step in and work with Melanie. "No one understands the way that girl ticks
like I do," Philip objects. That's what's worrying his father. Brady has a
rapport with Mel and doesn't want to sleep with her, he says, much to
Philip's annoyance. He asks for another chance to prove himself. Victor
relents but warns him that one more mistake will mean that Melanie isn't the
only one looking for a new job.
the hospital, Daniel calls Chloe to tell her how much he misses her. He adds
that Kate is getting her medical workup done today. After they exchange
their 'I love you's, he turns and finds Kate standing in front of him. He
claims that he was just speaking to a former patient. She's just had some of
her tests done. If the news is good, she's sure it couldn't have been
without him. As she hugs him, Maggie walks in and cringes at the sight. She
approaches and they discuss Chloe breaking her engagement. Kate still has
hope that it will go through. After she walks away, Maggie grabs Daniel and
lays into him. She says that Chloe is just in love with doing something
illicit and is in for a rude awakening. He asks her to appreciate that he
and Chloe never wanted to hurt anyone. Maggie doesn't appreciate it. Daniel
doubts the truth will make Lucas feel better. He's not ashamed of anything
he's done. "You are even more despicable than I thought," she says, pointing
out that he will have to tell Kate the truth too, and it won't be pretty.
at the mansion, Philip rants at Brady until Kate arrives. Brady leaves for
work and Kate tells her son that she is positive that the test results will
be good. "I am finally ready to be back," she giggles. As they have coffee,
Victor returns. She asks if she can take her son away for a few days. Victor
can happily spare him. Philip slouches off after hearing this. Victor
explains that her son screwed up. She tells him there are more important
things than work. Now that she is on the mend, she wants to make things
right for her sons again. He thinks she should back off. She's sure they
need direction. Victor trashes Chloe but Kate defends her and vows to make
things right. "You are a curmudgeonly old bastard with a heart of stone,"
she says, but she likes him anyway. He wonders if she still has feelings for
Daniel. She does and she's going to tell him so. Once she leaves, Kate
returns to the hospital and flatly asks Daniel if they can go back to his
place. There's something he has to tell her first. She assumes it's more bad
gets off the phone and sees Lucas and Allie walking through the park. Allie
runs into her arms, but Lucas tells her they have to go. He lets the little
girl play while he talks to Chloe. He orders her out of his daughter's life.
"I never meant to hurt you," she says. Lucas doesn't want to hear anymore
cliches so she stays quiet for a moment and then reuses her cliche and
cries. "You chose to blow things up between us," he reminds her. He can't
hate her though; he still loves her. She still loves him too. He doesn't
think she knows what she's saying. "I don't know what happened, but I know
that it had nothing to do with you," she says. He's heard enough and walks
away. She sits on the bench and cries. A priest arrives and sits with her.
"I've done a terrible thing," she confesses. She tells him that she has
always struggled and, lately, has felt guilty and weak. "I'm a slut," she
explains before detailing her broken engagement.
runs into EJ outside of the pub and begins mocking him. Elvis tells him that
he won't be invited to the wedding and warns him that if he clings to his
Kiriakis roots, he'll be fair game. Brady brushes him off. As soon as Elvis
is gone, Philip pops up and demands to know what he is doing. He accuses
Brady of talking about the fuel project behind his back. "If you don't back
off from my project, you're going to be the one looking for a job!" Philip
barks before stomping away. He heads to the DiMera mansion and begins
yelling at EJ. "The jig is up!" he says. "We are going to settle this right
here, right now!" Philip yells.
stalks into the pub and sits at the bar. He stares at the booze. As he
orders a Bloody Mary, Melanie asks him if he's Philip's brother. He claims
he's too busy to talk to her. She wants advice. "Leave me the hell alone,"
he advises. After she flounces off, the bartender hands him his drink. Lucas
tells himself not to drink it and then pulls out Chloe's ring. He remembers
her dumping him and then takes a drink. Meanwhile, Maggie's at home taking
pills when Melanie walks in. She tells her that she just met 'the infamous
Lucas' at the pub. He was mean to her and ordered a Bloody Mary. Hearing
this, Maggie whips out her phone.
February 19, 2009
I Am The Golden Child.
is on EJ's doorstep and tearing into him over Melanie. He pushes his way in
and vows that he won't allow Mel to bring the project to the DiMeras. Elvis
snidely laughs and thinks it's 'remarkable' that Philip believes he can
scare him. Tony drifts in and tells them that they're both out of their
minds. That doesn't stop them. EJ begins mocking Philip and accusing him of
letting his feelings for the girl get in the way of his business. He lays
the blame for this entire mess on him. Philip grabs him by the lapels and
threatens to run him out of town. Elvis opens the door and bids him good
day. Once Kiriakis is gone, Tony groans, "My my my... you have a lot to
learn little brother." EJ doesn't want to listen to this. They begin sniping
at each other. Tony thinks his brother is 'an insolent little bastard' for
claiming that the company is his. Elvis tries to fob him off but Tony thinks
that he's been starting a war with the Kiriakis family. EJ could care less
about that and doesn't appreciate being undermined by his own brother. The
siblings argue about who would disappoint their father more. "I'm the chosen
son," EJ smugly insists. Tony thinks he's 'screwing up royally'. EJ
continues to be smug. "I am the golden child," he proclaims. "Golden child?
You are a damned fool EJ," Tony laughs, bitterly.
and Stephanie meet at the pier. "Max and I... I kissed him," Chelsea
confesses. She thinks it really meant something too. Steph's uncomfortable
but says she is happy for her friend. The topic turns to Philip and Steph
says it's over; she thinks he's still chasing after Melanie and she can't
trust him anymore. Chelsea urges her to stake her claim anyway and Stephanie
leaps up to do so.
the hospital, Theo hands his parents a picture he drew of a boat. They're
impressed. When Abe tries to say goodbye, Theo becomes distraught and begs
him to stay. Lexi tells her husband that they can't always give their child
what he wants. Chelsea arrives and Theo runs into her arms. She offers to
take him to his therapy session. "Family," he says.
Mel spills to Maggie that she saw Lucas drinking a Bloody Mary at the pub,
Maggie immediately calls him. He doesn't pick up. Melanie realizes that he
must have a drinking problem. Maggie already knows exactly why he fell off
the wagon and hurries off to pull him back on. Philip shows up after Maggie
leaves. Melanie expects him to read her the riot act. He begins kissing her
instead. She's shocked. He takes off his coat. "A couple of weeks ago you
hated my guts... now you have feelings for me?" she asks. "That about sums
it up," he says. He can't shake his feelings or stop thinking about her. As
he kisses her, he tells her how much he wants her. They break apart. He
thinks she's hot when she's angry and he's wanted her since the first time
they met. She wants to believe him. They kiss some more. When he lifts her
onto the kitchen table, Steph arrives outside and sees them at it.
is talking to Father Matt in the park. He tells her that he works with lots
of couples and they commonly delude themselves by thinking that they have to
be happy all the time. She knows that she can't expect other people to be
responsible for her happiness, but she is greedy and immature and still
wants those things. When she gets comfortable and secure though, she gets
bored and wants the man who makes her heart beat faster - Daniel. They sit
down and she explains her situation. When she met Daniel, she felt something
stronger than she'd ever felt before. After acting on her feelings and
sleeping with him, she hated herself. The priest tells her that if she were
truly happy with Lucas, she never would have cheated on him. He suggests
that Daniel may be her soul mate and she shouldn't fight the way she feels
about him. He doesn't know what would make her happy, but maybe God does.
She's sure God has more important things to worry about than her love life.
Father Matt tells her that God always has time for her and this could be a
chance to test that idea. She tries praying to seek advice on which man she
should be with. The priest stifles a laugh and tells her that God will find
a way to get back to her. After he leaves, she tries praying again, begging
for a sign.
the hospital, Kate panics when Daniel has something to tell her. Before he
can, a nurse hands him her latest test results. He looks them over and tells
her that she's in remission. She laughs and hugs him in relief. Now she can
have hope again and relish her own uncertain future. Wishing to embrace her
life, she begins kissing him. Backing off, she apologizes. She explains that
she broke up with him because she was afraid of putting him through her
death. He suggests that she go and tell her family the good news. She
bounces away and he smiles. Now he's in the clear and he can come clean
is at the pub drinking and complaining to the bartender about how
complicated his life is. Then he talks to his drink about how hard his life
is. After a second drink, he heads over to the Cheatin' Heart and gets
another one. Before he can take a sip, Maggie grabs his vodka away. He
begins joking about Chloe, his wife 'not-to-be'. Maggie doesn't find him
amusing. He demands that she tell him whatever it is she seems to know.
"Chloe is having an affair," she flatly states. He prods her to tell him who
she has been seeing. She tells him it's Daniel. "I'm going to kill that
dude!" Lucas gasps. He takes out his phone and begins to dial.
Simultaneously, Daniel takes out his phone and begins to dial. Meanwhile,
Chloe sits in the park and her phone starts to vibrate. She looks at it.
"There's my sign," she says.
February 20, 2009
Maggie's New Year's Buffet.
arrives at Maggie's. She looks through the window and watches Philip making
out with Melanie. Mel spots her and smiles. Steph storms in and grouses.
Philip sputters. "When they say 'get a room', they don't mean the kitchen,"
Steph says. She never thought that Philip would stoop this low. "If you
weren't such a self-obsessed moron, you'd know that this wasn't passion but
the way a Kiriakis does business," she explains to Mel. Philip shakes his
head and Melanie pouts. She tells Steph to leave. Before she does, she gives
him an ultimatum: "Her or me?" He chooses Melanie. "You can't choose who you
fall in love with," he glosses. She flounces out and begins hyperventilating
on the porch before running off. Back inside, Melanie tells Philip that she
won't hold him to what he said. She thinks they should call it a day. He
thinks it's good that he was forced to choose and repeats that he loves her
and can't stop thinking about her. They begin kissing again. He offers to
take her somewhere. She tells him to back off; Steph may be an idiot, but
she's not. His passion for her only seemed to be ignited when she was
bringing her fuel project to EJ. "Don't trip on your way out," she giggles.
He mumbles and angrily walks out.
chases Stephanie down in the park. She asks her what's wrong. Stephanie
admits she caught Mel and Phillip on Maggie's kitchen table. "I don't think
I'll ever feel the same about Maggie's New Year's buffet," Steph mournfully
says. She's sure that he doesn't love Mel, but this is still disgusting.
"I'm not going to be stupid sweet Stephanie anymore!" she shouts, running
off. Chelsea is left behind wondering how to do it on a table. Steph returns
to the house as Melanie paces in the kitchen and wonders if she's made a
mistake. When she opens the door, Steph slaps her. Mel chuckles.
the mansion, Stefano smiles at his son. EJ smugly tells him, how much he is
enjoying making money and sticking it to Titan. Elvis marvels at what a
shrewd businesswoman Melanie is. "Too bad you aren't," his father says. He
warns his son that Mel isn't greedy, she's needy, and that's dangerous. He's
sure that she's been playing EJ all along and wants more than money, namely
Philip. "I feel so cheap," Elvis jokes. He's made it clear to Mel that if
she crosses him, there will be no happy ending for her. Stefano is impressed
by his ability to threaten teenaged girls and tells his son it's time to
draw up a prenup for Nicole. He repeats that he trusts Nicole. Stefano tells
him to keep telling himself that.
some practicing, Chloe prays to God for a sign. Meanwhile, at the Cheatin'
Heart, a drunken Lucas rants at Maggie and whips out his phone to call
Chloe. Simultaneously, Daniel calls Chloe and tells her that he needs to
talk to her and asks her to meet him at his place. She smiles. Back at the
bar, Lucas is too plastered and has called the wrong number. He starts
dialing again so he can tell Chloe she's a 'slut'. Since dialing is too
complicated, he decides to do it in person. Before he can run off, Maggie
forbids his getting in a car, or doing anything else, while drunk. "You're
to blame for this whole thing!" he barks at her, accusing her of setting his
fiancee up with the doctor. As he
at the bar and continues to drink, Maggie requests a drink for herself.
Lucas is shocked. She's can't leave him alone; she's worried about how
stupid he will be if she does. She's been through this before and he needs
to get himself together for his children's sake. "They'd be better off
without me," he says. She slaps the glass out of his hand and forbids him to
say that again. "That stupid doctor thinks he's so cool. He's not going to
get away with it this time," he grumbles. She demands his car keys and
offers to take him home. When he passes out on the table, she runs out to
get her car. He leaps up and laughs. After he runs into the bathroom to
escape, Maggie returns and panics when she sees he's gone.
Chloe shows up at Daniel's, an alarm starts to go off. Daniel goes out and
checks. The super is fixing the wiring in the hallway. The doctor is
relieved and returns to Chloe to tell her about Kate's good news. Now he
thinks they can go public. Chloe claims that she is still too much of a
coward, but he wonders if she is having second thoughts. She's not, but
she's had an odd day. She saw Lucas and the pain in his eyes and then
confessed to a priest and prayed. When he called her earlier, she took that
as a Divine sign that they are supposed to be together. They make out until
his phone rings. He has to run but tells her that he is 'crazy happy'
knowing she'll be there when he gets back. After he leaves, Lucas arrives.
He bangs on the door and shouts for Daniel. When Chloe rises to answer the
door, a huge explosion suddenly erupts.
finds Nicole sitting in the pub with Sydney. When Brady sits down, she tells
him that Dr. Baker is under the impression that he is in love with her. "Who
knows more about human feelings than a baby stealing piece of human dirt?"
Brady asks sarcastically. Seeing him get this upset makes her wonder if the
doctor is right. Brady ratchets up the sarcasm even more but that only makes
her more sure he is hiding something. "I do love you," he admits. She
reminds him that she loves EJ. He accepts that, but after seeing her when
she lost her baby, he couldn't help but love her for how devoted she is...
but he's not 'in love' with her. "Too bad you're still in love with me
though," he says. He's mocking her. She claims that she's suddenly developed
a conscience and it's been wrong for her to treat him the way she has. He
assures her that he is doing alright and she doesn't need to worry. But he
still thinks that she should tell EJ the truth. He walks her home and
assures her that he will keep her secret. As he does this, Philip stands in
the bushes and listens.
