Why Do I Have To Do Everything Myself?
the church, Stephanie tells father Matt that she's starting to think her
fiance is a liar and worse. She doesn't want to be a part of the kind of
family who Philip has. When he brings up her family, she gets paranoid. The
priest worries about how much her trauma has affected her. "You're a very
moral person and you are involved with people who are less so," he says. She
agrees, but the worst of it is that she's in love with someone who will
never change. He tells her that his mother came to him twenty years ago with
a similar problem. Steph is sure that Philip isn't Patch; he won't change.
She cries as she says that it's a sin to be in love with a man who does bad
things. "I don't think I can help you," the priest admits. He explains that
she already seems to have chosen what her future with Philip will be.
Fitzpatrick arrives at the DiMera mansion to see Stefano and EJ. They tell
the judge that there is clear evidence that Sami is an unfit parent.
Fitzpatrick tells them that the case is solid, but a trial would make things
complicated. Elvis gets irate so they begin threatening her. She warns them
not to bully her and Elvis repeats that they expect her help. They walk her
to the door but she refuses to promise anything. EJ says he finally
understands why his father always claimed he would do anything for his
children. He just kicks himself for getting involved with Sami. Stefano
tells him to forget the past and be happy he is with someone as loyal as
the pub, Philip asks Mel what she thinks is wrong with Steph. Melanie

wanders around town making calls about Mia and Nicole. When he spots Brady
in the Java Cafe, he goes in to talk to him about Mia. Brady doesn't have
any information to give him. Arianna comes in and he excuses himself. She
sits down with her brother and he asks her what's going on between her and
Brady. After she tells him that Nicole tried to set them up, she runs off
and tracks Brady down to talk. They sit down at the pier and she tells him
that Nicole trying to set them up made her uncomfortable. She tells him that
she's not pushy or desperate. "Sure you are girl!" Melanie exclaims as she
walks up on them. Arianna barks at her and Mel teases her for blushing.

goes back to the Java Cafe. Her brother thinks she looks rattled and quizzes
her some more about Brady. She's not admitting to anything. Rafe announces
that he has to go to the cemetery to visit Emily's grave. He admits that he
hasn't told Sami anything about her and he's not going to. As she walks off,
she bumps into Mel again and tells her not to try and set her up with Brady
since neither of them want to go out with the other. "Why do I have to do
everything myself?" Mel asks. As she thinks of all the people she has to set
up, she wonders who will set her up so she can be happy.
anxiously waits for Nicole to come by with Johnny. When they arrive, Sami
clings to her son and tells him what a great time they will have. She sends
him into his room and tells Nicole how grateful she is that she is doing
this. "I'm doing this because it's right," Nicole explains. Sami assumes she
must have another reason. She says that she doesn't agree with what EJ's
doing and this is all she can do to help... but she might not be able to do
that for long since Rafe keeps digging around. Nicole tells her Rafe will
have to stop snooping if she wants to keep seeing her son. "I'm on your
side," she claims, repeating what's at stake. She ushers Sami off to play
with her son and prays that this is worth it. After Sami plays with her son,
she hands him back and he leaves with Nicole. "I lost Grace but I'm not
going to lose Johnny," she cries. When she goes to the cemetery to visit
Grace's grave, she cries and tells her that she will come to visit her all
the time. She turns around, she sees Rafe in the cemetery. As she walks over
to him, he's placing flowers on Emily's grave. "Who is Emily?" she asks.

seeing his mother. EJ walks in on them.
wakes from another nightmare about Zack and calls out for Ciara. Hope points
out that she's sleeping right beside them. He tells his wife that he had a
vision of Zack, who told him that something bad will happen if Ciara loses
Tommy Bear. "We're in this together," Hope reassures him and warns him not
to torture himself over meaningless visions. He's sure they have to trust
what their son is trying to tell them.

arrives at the mansion. Philip begins quizzing him about Steph's medication.
The doctor can't say anything, but Philip needs answers. "You need to talk
to her," Daniel says, walking away. Meanwhile, at the church, Stephanie
tells Father Matt that she will be leaving Philip. He advises that if she is
going to break away, she has to truly mean it. Philip calls and asks her if
everything is alright. "No," she admits. The phone line breaks up. She
rushes off to the mansion. Philip confronts her about the pills, eager to
sort things out. She claims she's done with the pills for good, but things
have changed between them. He's given her a lot, but he can't give her peace
of mind. If she lives with him, she can't live with herself. "We've been
through this before. We've broken up a few times. We can work this out," he
says. She knows she can't change him so she's leaving him for good. He's
sure this is all just 'post-traumatic stress stuff'. She agrees, but it has
shown her the truth about her situation. As she pulls off her ring, he grabs
her hand and refuses to let her go. Stephanie can't handle benefiting from
his crimes and the suffering of other people. He tells her that he loves her
and wants her to be happy. Crying, she tells him she loves him too, but she
can't hide from the truth. She places the ring on the table, kisses him and
tells him she wants him to be happy. "Goodbye Philip," she says, walking
away. He picks up the ring and stares at it.
her new home, Chloe thinks about Daniel. She confesses to Maggie that she's
always thinking of him. Maggie suggests she must still feel guilty. "No, I'm
still in love with him," she confesses. She still has feelings for Daniel
and doubts they'll go away. That doesn't mean she is any less committed to
Lucas; she's just in love with someone else. From now on, she just has to
goes to see Daniel at the hospital and makes some cryptic remarks about
Chloe. She tells him he can make this situation go away if he has strength
and discipline. He knows that she means well but he's had enough of her
advice. Nothing will take away what is in his heart for Chloe.

She whips out her needle and injects some of them with poison. She hides
until Chloe comes out and picks up the basket. Kate pops up and asks for a
tour of the house and begins making digs about the doctor. Pulling out an
apple, she hands it to Chloe and tells her to take a bite. Before she can,
she remembers that she has to pick up Allie. Kate offers to go with her.
They drive over to the pub. As Chloe gets a cup of coffee, Allie reaches for
the apple. Kate freaks out and Chloe wonders what's going on. Kate covers
and then offers to go with them on a walk to the pier. When they get there,
Kate encourages Chloe to eat. Before she can take a bite, Daniel appears.
Kate gives them some distance and Chloe takes a bite of the apple.
is chatting with Johnny at the mansion when EJ walks in. He asks them what
secret they're sharing. She claims it's about ice cream. He's happy to see
they're getting closer and takes his son off to lunch. When he returns, he
tells Nicole that she will be the most important woman in Johnny's life from
now on. He's disappointed that she doesn't think gaining sole custody is
wonderful news. She loves Johnny, but she can't replace his mother. EJ's not
asking her to. She tells him that the boy cries over his mother. He's sure
the pain will be eased with time and difficulty in life breeds character. He
tells her to stop empathizing with Sami and empathize with him instead. "I
lost a daughter. Me, not you," he says. "I lost a daughter too," she sobs.
She corrects herself and says that she feels like she's lost a daughter. He
begins ranting about Sami until his father steps in. After EJ walks out,
Stefano asks why Rafe was there. She doesn't know but is sure he doesn't
know anything. "Not yet," Stefano warns. When she starts to panic, he tells
her that he will be taking an active interest in Rafe.
is in the graveyard leaving flowers for Emily. Sami walks up on him and asks
him who Emily was. He says it's a long story and maybe he'll tell it to her
someday. "Why are you hiding this from me?" she asks. He won't say anything.
She backs down and brings up Nicole. He's surprised to learn that she snuck
Johnny out to see her. As he leaves, she peers down at Emily's grave. When
she heads over to the pub, she talks with Arianna about her trip to the
cemetery. When she brings up Emily, Arianna gets uncomfortable. "What the
hell are you doing?" Rafe asks as he walks in. Ari makes herself scarce and

the pier, Kate watches as Chloe bites into the apple she drugged. Chloe
cringes after a bite and readies to throw it out, explaining that it tastes
weird. When Kate tries to guilt her into eating the whole thing, Chloe stops
and takes another bite. Kate begins gabbing about the next episode of the
show. Daniel and Chloe try to brush her off, claiming they have other plans.
Kate drags them to the Java Cafe and explains that she wants to do a special
segment about their true relationship. Lucas walks in and asks what she's
talking about. Kate says it will be all about cancer and how Daniel and
Chloe saved Kate's life. Chloe is embarrassed by the praise and suddenly get
woozy. She claims she's fine and says goodbye to Lucas as he leaves with
Allie. Kate gets called away on business and leaves them alone. Daniel
offers to drive Chloe home since she's looking pale. When he takes her home,
Chloe suddenly collapses. Meanwhile, Kate gives Lucas some work to do and
they argue about whether Chloe is smart enough to know how lucky she is. He
accuses his mother of always being disgusted with his wife.
goes home and finds Maggie packing up her cleaning supplies. Mel encourages
her not to go along with her so she can clean the cabin alone. She adds that
she doesn't want Nathan there either; she just has two friends who she wants
to play matchmaker with. Maggie wonders what's in it for her. She explains
that she's doing this for good karma so she can get someone who will love
her for who she is.
Arianna walks out of the pub, she bumps into Brady again. After apologies,
she asks him to try and convince Sami to stop seeing her brother. He thinks
that's a bizarre request. She claims Sami's all wrong for her brother. When
she walks off, he wonders what her deal is. He follows her to the park and
tells her he's worried about her. She seems too highly strung and he wishes
she would relax some more because her relaxed personality is very
interesting to him. Ari says he's nice, but... "Me neither," he agrees. He
wasn't hitting on her, he claims, and she claims that she enjoys being
single. They ramble and then part ways. He smiles.
goes to the pub to meet Melanie. She tells him that she volunteered to clean
the cabin but she needs help. "Why do I feel like I'm Tom Sawyer and you're
trying to get me to paint a fence," he says. She doesn't follow the analogy,
but he agrees to go along for a distraction. He goes over to pick Maggie up
for an AA meeting. She notices that he seems distracted. He admits that
there is a woman he can't stop thinking about. He's sure that she will never
admit that she likes him though. "I'm in junior high all over again," he
says. Maggie advises him to take his time. He agrees. Meanwhile, Melanie
corners Ari and asks her to help clean the cabin on her day off. Ari agrees,
but only if they don't have to talk about guys.
the pub, Rafe makes Sami promise never to bring up Emily again. She tells
him that she loves him and wants to know everything about him. He tells her
that if she keeps lying and invading his privacy then they are over. Sami
can't believe he's threatening to leave her over this. He claims that there
are things he needs to keep private. She doesn't see how that's fair and
accuses him of being dishonest with her. Sobbing, she walks out. He follows
her to the townhouse and they continue arguing. Rafe wants to work through
their trust issues because he loves her. "You don't even know me," she says.
She's impulsive and questioning and if he has a problem with that, they
don't have a chance. He tells her that fighting is part of life; that
doesn't mean they need to give up on each other. "I love you so much," she
says. They kiss, they tear off their clothes and then leap into bed. After
sex, they pick their clothes up off the living room floor and he makes fun
of her cooking. When he goes to take a shower, she gets ready to order some
dinner. Since she has no money, she looks in Rafe's wallet and finds a
memorial notice for Emily.
