bed, EJ tells Nicole that he knows she isn't telling him the truth about
something. "You're scared and I know that it has something to do with our
daughter... you're not Sydney's mother," he says. She panics but he explains
that he means that Sydney's mother is calm and rational and she hasn't been
her old self. They bicker. She worries that their daughter will be walking
soon and be in danger of falling down the stairs. He says that she must be
more protective of Sydney because Grace died and she was the same age as
their child. He's had some dark days lately, but he can see that she is in a
lot of pain and wants to know why. She accuses him of projecting what he's
been doing onto her. He is the one who is obsessed. "Why does everything
always come back to Sami?" she asks. Elvis accuses her of avoiding his
questions. She knows that he only married her because she was pregnant and
doubts he would have if he had known that Sami was pregnant as well. He
laughs this off. After they fall asleep, he dreams of being in bed with
Sami, talking to the baby. He wakes up with a shock.
arrives at home and finds that Rafe has lit candles and set things up for an
indoor picnic. "I don't need surprises. I just need you," she says. They
make out and wish they could have picnics every day. As he gets something,
Roman calls and tells her where Meredith is staying. He won't dig any more
until she tells him more about this woman. She hangs up as Rafe returns with
smores. After eating one, she suddenly announces that she has to run to the
pub and get Allie's smock. Once she runs off, Roman shows up at the door.
Meanwhile, Sami runs into Meredith by the pier.
shows up at the mansion. Philip tells her that Chloe may be dying. He
doesn't want to talk about it. She explains her fight with Mel. "I came here
to tell you that I'm sorry and I made a huge mistake," she says. She knows
how bad he must be feeling about Chloe right now. He feels worse about
losing Steph. Steph wishes she could take back some of the things she said
and admits that she's still in love with him. They come close to kissing
when Henderson interrupts to say that Lucas will arrive in two hours. Philip
tells Steph she's lucky they were interrupted. He's the same guy and he
won't change. If she can't deal with that, there is no future for them. They
agree to be friends and she walks out, dejected.
runs into Maggie and Nathan at the hospital. As Maggie looks at her two
wards, she wonders if everything is alright. They aren't saying anything.
She leaves to call and warn Mia about the poison in the kitchen. Mel begins
apologizing to Nathan for running out on their date. He doesn't think that's
necessary and offers to reschedule. She smiles, "Yeah okay."
the hospital, Daniel stares at Kate and tells Bo and Hope that he knows who
poisoned Chloe. He tells the cops that Kate was in his apartment and she
must have planted it. Kate has been jealous of him ever since they broke up.
When the police bring this up to Kate, she turns on the tears and whines
about how she has always defended him as a good man. Crying, she insists
that there is no way she wanted to see this happen. Daniel gets angry so Bo
forces him to back off. Maggie walks in and admits that she told Lucas about
the affair earlier, after he started drinking again. Kate nearly explodes
but Hope grabs onto the lead and begins questioning her. Maggie insists that
Lucas never remembered the facts thanks to the explosion. Bo and Hope start
putting things together and wonder if Lucas is guilty. Kate defends him and
insists that she knows for a fact who did it. Lexi comes out and explains
that Chloe isn't responding and could use a family member by her side. Kate
offers to do it but Daniel begs the cops not to allow it. "I don't know why
Daniel thinks I'm such a monster," Kate says, pushing past him.
Maggie is talking to Brady, filling him in on what's
happened to Chloe. She cries as she talks about how this tragedy has
unraveled in her home. He calls Chloe's parents, who Kate never contacted
about any of this. Daniel approaches Brady and begs him to keep Kate away
from Chloe, sit by the diva's bedside and help her through this. Meanwhile,
Kate holds Chloe's hand and tells her that no one loves her and she should
do herself a favor and let go. Brady comes in and sits with his ex-wife.
He tells her that he still loves her and wishes he
could have helped her. "Fight," he begs, holding her hand. She seems to
respond. Outside the room, Bo tells Daniel not to leave. Brady runs out and
says that Chloe could be waking up. After Lexi checks her out, she says it
was just an involuntary movement. Daniel begs for a chance to spend time
with Chloe. The forensics report comes in and it proves that the doctor's
fingerprints were on the vial of poison. Bo tells him to get a lawyer.
Daniel is outraged. They drag him out as he screams about how much he loves
Chloe. Kate smirks.

Do You have Any Antacid?
the townhouse, Rafe asks Roman why Sami is covering up the calls which she
has been making to him. Roman thinks he's jumping to conclusions but Rafe is
sure there is more. Roman's not helpful but Rafe assures him he is only
trying to help Sami since she is making impulsive choices at the moment.
After Roman leaves, Rafe starts calling around looking for Sami and hopes
she's dropped her obsession with Emily.
startles Meredith on the pier. Sami's glad to see her. "What is it you want
with me?" Meredith asks. Meredith is weirded out and wants to escape but
Sami is desperate to talk about Emily. She promises she's not a stalker.
Meredith begins opening up about how horrible her sister's death was and how
it never should have happened. They talk about grief and how it never goes
away. She and her sister used to tell each other everything, but then Rafe
came and everything changed. Meredith thought he was great at the
beginning... but that all changed. She becomes distraught and runs off. When
Sami goes home, Rafe is waiting and begins interrogating her as soon as she
arrives. "I had an interesting conversation with your father," he says. She
fobs it off but he wants to know why she is lying to him.
is dragged down to the station. Bo threatens to put him in a holding cell if
he doesn't talk. The doctor agrees to tell him everything. Bo wanders out to
Hope and they discuss whether Daniel or Kate could be behind this. Hope goes
in and begins interrogating the doctor after reading him his rights. He
tells her the affair was inevitable. Daniel explains that Kate has been
obsessing for a long time and must have created an elaborate plan. "She is
weird about her son. It's like she has to run his life," he says. She
returns to the evidence and how it all points to him. He tells her that Kate
blackmailed him to work with Chloe and things got out of hand. Hope repeats
that there is no one to back him up. He suggests that Kate could have
confided in someone about her plan... like Victor. The detective thinks that
he's made Kate look like quite an opponent.
and Abe talk about the case. Bo's already sure that Daniel didn't do it.
Abe's a lot less convinced and wonders if Bo will be coddling another
suspect like he did with his brother. "Your ass is on the line," Abe warns
him. As they argue, Bo taunts him to go ahead and fire him. The lab results
are handed to Bo. He soon admits that things don't look good for Daniel. Bo
still thinks he's innocent, but that doesn't change what he has to do next.
the hospital, Kate tells comatose Chloe that she needs to die. As Kate
begins trying to disconnect the IV, Lexi comes in and orders her out. When
Kate walks out, Victor arrives. "Chloe's in a coma. Do you have an antacid?
This coffee is bilge," she groans. He wonders why she is sticking around
unless she's afraid she'll miss the finale. He needs some details and
jokingly asks if she caught Chloe's collapse on tape. Victor is eager to
help make sure that Chloe never wakes up and guesses that this is all Kate's
handiwork. "Bad things happen to people you hate," he says, wondering why
she is still alive at all. She runs into Nathan and asks him for an update.
He tells them about the tox screen and hurries off. Victor is giddy for more
details. She says Chloe was poisoned over a long period of time and had
plenty of enemies. He tells her she should be worried about what her son
will think of this. "You don't think I have that covered?" she says. He
teases her some more about the 'death watch' and she tries to chase him off.
"Good girl. Nice work. See you at the funeral," he says, but before he
leaves, he asks her how she is going to keep Lucas from suspecting her. Bo
calls Victor and tells him that they are about to arrest Daniel and he needs
a lawyer. When Victor gets off the phone, he tells Kate that he doesn't care
what she does to Chloe but she can't pin this on a member of his family.
Lucas arrives and asks what's happened. "Are you going to tell him Kate, or
should I?" Victor asks. Meanwhile, Lexi tells Nathan that the antidote isn't
working, just prolonging the inevitable. "She might never come out of this,"

This Time You've Gone Too Far.

evidence is against him. Abe tells him he has to move on factual evidence.
Bo thinks they still need to question Lucas before they move ahead.
tells the doctor that his theory about Kate makes her look like an
impressive opponent. He begs her just to keep Kate away from Chloe. Bo comes
in for a second and says that Chloe is slipping further into a coma. Daniel
is distraught. Bo questions him off the record. The doctor assumes that he
and Hope actually think he's innocent. Bo's getting a lineup ready for the
pharmacist. Daniel thinks this is all a puppet show being run by Kate. After
the lineup turns out to be a bust, the DA calls and declares that they will
be pressing charges anyway. Bo is forced to place Daniel under arrest. As
the doctor is led to booking, Bo tells Abe that they just made a big

the evidence against him is overwhelming. "This time you've gone too far,"
he says. Lucas rushes in and asks what's going on. His mother hugs him and
tells him how sorry she is. She breaks the news by pointing him to Chloe's
room. After Lexi fills him in on the poisoning, he's exasperated and returns
to his mother. Philip arrives and explains that he just heard Daniel has
been brought into custody. Victor claims that he's certain the doctor will
be completely exonerated. Lucas and his brother go in to see Chloe. Lucas
sits with his wife and begs her to wake up. Lexi admits that she might not
wake up at all. "This is not how the story ends," he says to his wife. As he
furrows his brow, her hand twitches.
taunts Kate, sure that Lucas will believe anything he says about her. Kate
says that he can't stop this. He threatens to tell Bo everything. "You do
everything you have to to get what you want. So do I and I want Daniel
free," he says. She gets upset that Daniel will go free after everything
he's done. He only believes her tears when she's crying for herself. Victor
makes some more snide remarks about Kate's extraordinary level of empathy as
Philip returns. Kate tells him about the affair. "Good God I thought my life
was a mess," Philip says. He walks off to check on his brother while Kate
tries to hammer something out with Victor. He pushes past her when he sees
Hope arrive. She's not interested in talking to him right now; she's eager
to talk to Lucas. Kate tries to stop her from talking to her son and Victor
tries to stop her from talking to Kate. Although they're acting suspicious,
she goes in to see Lucas instead. Hope tells him that she needs him to prove
he was out of the country when Chloe got sick. She asks him a few more
questions and he tells her about the woman's scarf they found on Daniel's
floor. "You find out who did this and make them pay," he says. Meanwhile,
Kiriakis takes Kate outside and tells her that he is giving her a chance to
fix this. "Or you're facing prison, or worse," he threatens. After he
leaves, Hope comes out and advises Kate to find a way to fill Lucas in as
sensitively as possible. When she departs, Philip returns and his mother
tells him she needs his help. She wants him to tell Lucas about the affair.
When Lucas approaches them, Kate blurts out, "She betrayed you!" Philip
explains about the affair. Lucas plods back to Chloe's room. "How could
you?" he asks her.
arrives at the station and tells Bo everything that she got out of Lucas.
Victor arrives as Hope leaves for the booking. Victor tells Bo that Daniel

department must be. When Bo asks his father if he knows who did the
poisoning, Victor claims ignorance. Meanwhile, Daniel is booked,
fingerprinted and taken down to the cells.

why she is lying to him. She tells him that what she's been up to is none of
his business. They bicker about how he never talks about his past. He tells
her his past hurts. So does hers but she told him anyway because she loves
him. He refuses to say any more. "Then we can't move forward," she declares,
ordering him to tell her everything. He doesn't appreciate ultimatums when
she's been going behind his back. She assumes he's scared that the truth
might change their feelings for each other so she offers to tell him
everything about herself first. He takes a chair and she tells him about her
rapes, her numerous crimes, her time on death row, her life as a man in the
middle east and adds EJ as a footnote before asking Rafe for his story. He
tells her that this hasn't changed anything – she still chose to tell him
this and he refuses to be coerced. She accuses him of having something to
hide. He finally gives in and tells her that he was in a car crash and Emily
was killed. He took her away from her family and they hate him for it.
Upset, he walks out.

daughter-in-law. "I have a feeling something awful is going to happen," she

"What's new?" he shrugs. She's sure that Rafe will get proof of their
deception. When Elvis returns and his wife leaves, his father asks him

drifts away. After she leaves, Nicole comes in to visit her friend. She

their past, but she doesn't feel like she deserves it anymore. "I didn't
want to burden you with my terrible secrets," she says. As she weeps, she
tells her about her miscarriage, meeting up with Mia, swapping babies, the
