You're Not Exactly Virginal.
the hospital, Stephanie gets frustrated when she can't find anything to
watch on TV other than violence and cooking shows. Philip's machine starts
to beep. She gasps and shakes him before suddenly waking up. It was a dream.
Philip tells her that she's fine and promises never to leave her, but he
thinks she shouldn't know what's coming next. Steph's afraid the
retaliations will never end. He says this was all started with him and has
to end with him too. She's sure that he will never change. Philip is sure
that running away will just change the location of the war. "I love you, but
I can't live like this!" she declares, running out.
the corridor, Kate tells Daniel that Chloe was whoring around on her son.
"The man she was whoring around with was you," she accuses. He asks her
what's next and defends Chloe, reminding Kate that she saved her life. Kate
can't believed he's acting like he did nothing wrong. "You're not exactly
virginal," he tells her, refusing to allow her to take any moral high
ground. He continues defending Chloe and tells her that she can take her
vengeance out on him if she has to, but if she goes after Chloe, she will
regret it. Kate guesses he still loves Chloe. Daniel is sure that anything
Kate does will just make things worse for everyone, including Lucas. "She
hurts. He hurts. Trust me on that," he warns.
at the pier, Lucas walks in on Chloe telling Father Matt that some secrets
should be kept from a husband. The priest doesn't exactly agree with her.
Lucas interrupts and assumes they are talking about Nicole. The priest
changes the topic and brings up the idea of them exchanging their vows in
the church. Lucas thinks that's a great idea but Chloe says they need to
talk it over first. Father Matt leaves and Lucas asks his wife why she isn't
wild about this idea. She claims she's happy just the way they are. After
listing all of the things that make her happy, she kisses him. They go to
the pub for lunch. Lucas tells her that hearing about secrets got him
thinking. "Don't think. It's tiring," she advises. He doesn't want any
secrets between them. She assumes he's talking about Sami and doesn't want
to hear it.
the Java Cafe, Rafe tells Arianna that he loves her and no one will ever
take her place in his heart. As they hug, Sami walks in and spots them.
After Arianna walks out, Sami walks over and confronts him. "You know what
the problem is?" she asks. "No one ever knows what you're talking about?" he
asks. She rants at 'Agent Casanova'. He finally stops her as she begins
crying... then she starts up again. He finally explains that he's known
Arianna forever - she's his sister. Sami twitches, but she's glad he has
someone to talk to. They begin arguing about EJ. "Are you really through
with EJ?" he asks. She says it's about the kids. He knows that's not true.
She admits she wishes she was in Nicole's place. He's about to walk out but
she begs him to stay. Sami explains that she's always wanted to give her
kids the 'Stepford' life but reality got in the way. She's tired of letting
her past ruin her future. Rafe is strong and funny and makes her feel safe.
Unfortunately, she'll never be able to tell him that she hates EJ. While she
knows what he and his family are capable of, her son will always be part of
that family. After she finishes her explanation, he tells her that he'd be
crazy to leave anyone as wonderful as her. They joke around and then worry
about Grace. He promises to be in his goddaughter's life no matter what.
After he finishes his croissant, he offers to help her forget about EJ and
gives her a kiss.
goes to see Chelsea. Her mother's condition hasn't changed. They hug. She
weighs her suitcase and admits that she doesn't know how long she will be
gone. He understands that she needs to take care of her mom. Leaving him is
the worst thing, she explains, hugging him close. Max says that she doesn't
have to go alone. She wonders how he can leave his sister behind. Max points
out that Mel ignores him anyway and asks Chelsea if she simply doesn't want
him to go with her. She loves him and wants him but she's afraid that he
would have to give up everything by going to London. If they broke up, she
couldn't forgive herself. He doesn't understand. She leaves to get her final
paycheck and asks him to stay and wait. Stephanie arrives and he tells her
that her roommate is moving out. "Dammit! What's next?" she wonders. He
probes. She tells him everything that's going wrong in her life. He suggests
that she go to Greece on her own.
goes to see Philip in his hospital room. After he talks to Billie on the
phone, Chelsea asks him where Steph went. He has no idea. When she goes
home, she's surprised that Max is still there. He's not mad at her for
leaving to help her mom and apologizes for before. He says he'll be waiting
for her. She doesn't think it's fair to ask. Max wants to wait. They kiss.
Meanwhile, Steph returns to Philip's room. She admits that, even if she
doesn't like living like this, it's better than living without him. He says
she's the best thing that's ever happened to him. After they nap, a nurse
interrupts. She sends Stephanie home so she can administer some more drugs
to Philip. As she begins injecting his IV, Philip remembers that he wasn't
supposed to get anymore meds. It's too late. He loses consciousness. "Good
night sweet prince," the nurse says as she places a pillow on his face and
begins suffocating him.
the hall, Kate tells Daniel that she is going to give him and Chloe a pass.
She's lost her taste for vengeance... this time anyway. He assures her that
Chloe is doing everything to keep Lucas happy. "She is way better than both
of us," he insists. When Kate marches off, she runs into Chloe by the pier.
She was just trying to call the doctor. Kate interrogates her about it. "I
just told him how much I owe him for what he's done for my family, but you,
I don't owe a damn thing," Kate spits at her.
May 5, 2009
Honey, I'm Just Getting Started.
the hospital, Hope is questioning Melanie. She pouts and tells her that the
new nurse has kept her waiting while she tends to Philip. Hope panics.
Meanwhile, the 'nurse' injects Philip's IV with more drugs and places a
pillow on his face to suffocate him. Hope runs in with her gun out and
orders the woman to step away. The guard holds her while Hope questions her
and Mel tries to get Philip to start breathing again. She gives him 'the
breath of life'. He smiles. "Anything to kiss me," he says. Baker runs in
and then notices that he's awake.
the pier, Kate is confronting Chloe. Kate thought she was generous when she
gave her bone marrow, but then she showed herself to be an amoral bitch.
Chloe is taken aback. "Honey, I'm just getting started,"
Kate warns. Chloe suggests they get coffee and talk. Kate's disgusted by the
innocent act. They bicker until Kate screams at her about her affair with
Daniel. "You're stupid and you're careless," Kate barks. Chloe begs her not
to tell Lucas. Kate won't, but only because she thinks it would knock her
son off the wagon. Since she doesn't want to see her any more than she has
to, she fires her. Lucas walks over and angrily asks what's going on. "Do
you want to tell him or should I?" Kate asks. Chloe says she never wanted
the job in the first place and they ran some tests for the show that didn't
work out. Kate says the tests were so awful she erased them. Lucas wonders
why his mother has suddenly turned on his wife. Kate claims that she simply
has no talent. Chloe backs her up. After Kate leaves, Chloe continues
insisting that she is glad this happened. Now she can have her life back. He
sends her ahead to meet him later at the pub. When he's alone, he calls his
mother and demands to know the real reason she fired Chloe.
the mansion, Nicole finds EJ talking on the phone about Dr. Baker. He tells
her that this is just business and none of her concern. She grabs his paper
and gasps. He takes it back and orders her out. She refuses to budge so he
explains that Stefano has been investigating the doctor. He asks her why she
fired him. "Is there something I should know about?" he asks. She insists it
was only because he's a gambling addict and because EJ doesn't like him and
then suggests that he cancel the investigation. After some more badgering,
he agrees to cancel it... for now. The baby cries. He ushers her off to look
after her. Once he closes the door, he wonders why she is so determined to
stop the investigation. "He could be very useful to us," EJ thinks. He gets
on the phone with Masi and begins screaming at him when he learns of the
attempt on Philip's life. "You're going to deal with me!" he screams,
smashing his phone.
arranges to meet Dr. Baker at the Java Cafe. She makes it clear to him that
they have to pretend this is an accidental meeting because her bodyguard is
nearby. He refuses outright to listen to any more suggestions that he leave
Salem. Nicole suggests that he reconsider that if he wants to live. Stefano
is investigating him and knows all about his debts. She's managed to kill
the investigation for a little while so he has the chance to run. He can't.
Nicole warns him that he'll end up in Stefano's pocket. He doesn't seem too
worried but admits that he's in danger. The doctor can't see the point of
running though; Stefano can always find him. Nicole worries about Sami and
her baby. He's still undeterred and tells her to look after EJ herself. "If
he finds out about me, he finds out about you," he warns.
returns home and finds Chelsea crying. She explains that she's breaking down
under all of the sadness. Steph tells her that she'll feel better when she
starts helping her mother. Chelsea worries about how much things can change
while she's away. Her friend will miss talking with her about shoes in the
middle of the night. Melanie calls and tells Steph that there has been
another attempt on Philip's life. They run off.
at the hospital, Philip asks Hope what happened. She doesn't know. He's
already sure that the DiMeras were behind this. She warns him not to do
anything and promises that there will be new security protocols to keep him
safe. When she leaves, he gets out of bed. As he tries to walk out, Mel
walks in. He's weak and collapses. She helps him into bed as Steph walks in.
He's not happy Melanie called her. Lying in bed is driving him crazy; he
feels like a sitting duck. Steph blames herself for not being there to help
him. He orders her not to feel guilty. After kissing him, she gets an idea
and hurries out. In tears, she runs to the DiMera mansion and confronts EJ.
"It stops now!" she shouts at him. He plays stupid. She tells him that
revenge only leads to more revenge. He kicks her out and then calls his
father, begging him start returning his calls. Elvis picks up a photo of
Tony and stares at it.
at the hospital, Chelsea is talking to Hope in the waiting room. She panics
when she hears that Bo is on the way to Chicago and worries that she won't
be able to say goodbye. Hope assures her that everything will be okay.
Chelsea thanks her for everything she's done for her in spite of everything
she's done to her. Hope loves her and knows that she's good inside. "I'm so
proud of the person you have grown to be," Hope tells her. They cry and hug.
"You are my daughter," Hope says.

It's Hard To Reason From Underneath A Pillow.
arrives at the hospital and rants at security for nearly letting Philip get
killed. He goes to see his son. Philip is feeling better but he wants some
answers. Victor says they can't tie the nurse to the DiMeras yet but he
won't let them get away with this. Philip wants them to pay. Brady walks in
and asks them which DiMera they plan to kill first. They talk about
'unforeseen catastrophes'. Brady is sure that a killing spree is about to
transpire and demands to know when it will be over. Victor tells him to stop
spewing sanctimonious crap. "Are you on drugs again Brady?" he asks. Brady
tells him to go to Hell. Philip apologizes for his father and tries to calm
everyone down. He doesn't think Brady needs to know what's going on though.
Brady insists that he is part of this and wants to help, but he doesn't
think revenge is the answer. Victor orders him to stay out of this. Brady
tells his grandfather to look inside himself for once and evaluate his
morals. He encourages Philip to try rising above all of this and walks out.
Victor makes some calls and then tells his son that everything is going as
is cringing at the Java Cafe as she mulls Dr. Baker's threats. She notices
that he left his keys on the table. Before she can walk out, Sami and Rafe
walk by gabbing about Grace. Sami is super happy, even if 'Agent Ruiner'
nearly ruined everything. She kisses him and thanks him for spending the day
with her. Nicole walks over and spoils the moment. Rafe tells her to get
lost. Nicole reminds her that she ruined her wedding without explanation.
She rants at them and claims that EJ is finally happy now that he's not
stuck with a shallow airhead like Sami. Rafe walks away but Nicole follows
him and he tells her to get a life. She lays into him for spying on her and
then notices that Sami is holding her daughter. She rushes over and says she
doesn't want her within a mile of her baby. "You stay out of my life,"
Nicole orders. As she goes to the door, she notices Dr. Baker outside. She
begins shouting that she lost her keys. Baker takes the hint and ducks away.
Nicole leaves. Sami tells Rafe that Nicole is certifiable and worries about
how tangled up her life is with hers. They play with her children and his
sister walks in. "You're the famous Sami Brady, right?" she asks. Arianna
has heard all about her at the pub and some of it was even good. She takes
her brother aside and tells him he's out of his mind to be involved with
'that woman'. He returns to Sami and asks her out for a romantic date later.
She can't wait.
runs into Dr. Baker by the pier and hands him his keys. She whispers about
what a close call they just had. He tells her to deal with it. She thinks
he's hoping the truth will come out. He's not, but if she keeps acting like
something is wrong, people will notice. "You're an idiot," she says. "That's
debatable," he suggests. Nicole repeats her warnings about all the danger
they could be in. She worries that someone will put the clues together. "I
can't let that happen. I won't," she insists. Sami may not exactly be a
genius but she could still figure things out. Nicole warns him again about
Stefano's investigation. He repeats that it's her job to stop it. Once he
leaves, she picks up the baby and tells her that the truth will come out,
but she won't let anyone take her away.
and Max are at the airport anxiously waiting for Bo. He arrives and she runs
into his arms. They sit down and she updates him about her mom. Although
Chelsea knows that going to help her mom is the right thing to do, she still
finds it hard to leave Salem. "This is your home," Bo says before telling
her how proud he is of her. They hug. She knows what a pain she was when she
first came to town. "You're my daughter. You're part of me and part of my
heart. I love you," he says. After they say their goodbyes, Max hands her a
bag of stuff and they talk awkwardly. She tells him that they both need to
accept she will be gone for awhile. He doesn't want her to go. They hold
hands and he tells her he wishes he could be cool about this, but he doesn't
know how he can say goodbye to her. She tears up and they kiss. "I'll be
waiting for you when you get back," he promises.
meets with Brady at the pier for an update on the situation. Brady worries
that things are escalating too fast. Bo says he will take care of it and
walks off. He heads straight over to see his father and brother. Philip
accuses the cops of just replacing crime scene tape with red tape. Victor
wonders if Bo is there to give them a lecture. "Stop the insanity," Bo
lectures. Victor doesn't think he'd being saying any of this if it was
happening to his children. Bo can't protect them if they go out on their
own. His father isn't impressed. He gets a call and leaves. Bo tells his
brother to listen to reason. "It's hard to reason from
underneath a pillow," Philip shoots back. Outside, Brady arrives and
tells Victor that he just closed a deal. Victor asks him how his chat with
May 7, 2009
It's Time For Me To Strike.
arrives at the hospital to pick up his son. Their plan is going ahead. When
they get to the mansion, Stephanie is waiting with a 'welcome home' sign.
Victor asks her to excuse them for a few minutes. She's annoyed and tells
him that's not going to happen. Victor imagines she's drunk if she's acting
this insolent. Philip stops their battling and sends her out so he can talk
to his father. He tells him that they should cut her some slack. Victor
shrugs and informs him that the first phase of their plan is complete. "Then
it's time for me to strike," Philip declares. His father leaves to set
things in motion and Steph comes in. She's angry when he jokingly accuses
her of eavesdropping. They kiss and make up. When she starts to unbutton his
shirt, she's traumatized to see the bandages on his chest. She tells him how
freaked out she was when he got shot. She even went to see EJ and gave him
hell. Philip's not impressed by this and orders her never to do that again;
it was reckless... particularly considering what's about to happen. "What
are you planning?" she asks. He refuses to say. "I've been a potential
casualty ever since I fell in love with you," she points out. Philip accuses
her of romanticizing things and doesn't want her to get hurt. She refuses to
goes over to the townhouse to see Will and the baby. Sami comes out and
shows off the dress for her date. Mia, Will and Grace leave and Sami wonders
if she should change her clothes. As she mutters to herself, Rafe comes to
the door. "Wow!" he says as he sees her. She thought they were going
somewhere romantic but he looks like he's going bowling. He hands her a
flower and ushers her out the door. He takes her to the woods on the south
side of town. There's a picnic set out and the stars are shining. She asks
him how many girls he's brought up there. He lists half the phonebook, but
he's just kidding. She's really the only person he's ever brought up there.
They kiss. After drinking some wine, they look at the stars and he tells her
the legend of Orion's Belt. She giggles as he talks about the Flea God and
he tells her that he wanted to be an astronaut when he was a kid. Sami jumps
when a fish jumps in the water. She had no idea a fish could jump too so she
runs down to the water to see, immediately falling in. Sami flails. He pulls
her out and puts a blanket on her. She shivers so he helps her out of her
wet clothes. He joins her under the blanket and they make out. She tells him
that this feels right.
the mansion, Elvis calls Dr. Baker and tells him to come over after his
shift. When he gets off the phone, Nicole demands to know what he is doing
with the doctor. "He's a charming man. I crave his company," EJ claims.
Nicole isn't laughing at this bad joke. She reminds him that he was supposed
to call off the investigation. Junior comes clean and tells her that his
father has gone missing. He's jumpy and barks that nothing has happened to
his father... but he's sure that Dr. Baker is a lowlife and could be working
for the Kiriakis family. "When he leaves here, there is nothing I won't know
about him," he claims. Baker comes to the door. Nicole flings it open and EJ
sends her upstairs. Taking Baker into the great room, Elvis accuses him of
not being who he claims to be. Elvis lays into him and warns him that he
knows all of his crimes. When he suggests that the doctor could be involved
with Stefano's disappearance, Baker protests his innocence but suggests that
he look at the Kiriakis family. Nicole walks in as Elvis continues his
questioning. He suddenly gets a call from Victor requesting that he meet him
on the pier. After Elvis runs off, Nicole begs Baker to leave town. He
thinks that he could get some money out of Junior. She panics and is sure
that he'll end up digging his own grave. Baker says he doesn't have enough
money to pay off his debts. Nicole offers to give him 15,000 dollars. He
needs 50,000 dollars. She refuses. As he turns to walk away, he trips and
falls down the stairs.
and Will are at the Java Cafe. She plays with Grace. He asks his sister to
let them study and tells Mia that he owes her for talking him into accepting
her. She thanks him for making her feel like she fits in. Tad and Kenzie
come over. Kenzie reminds Mia that they went to school together. Looking at
the baby, Kenzie says, "You've been busy, huh?" Kenzie interrogates Mia and
accuses her of being a drama queen. Mia leaves to powder her nose. Kenzie
sits down and explains that Mia was 'prom queen popular' before she dropped
out. Will is shocked. Kenzie gossips and
that Mia must have been on meth or bulimic and ran off to rehab. Will
defends his friend. "I'm like 95 percent sure," Kenzie insists. "You're also
like 95 percent bitch," he shoots back. She calls him a jerk and Tad drags
her off as Mia returns and asks him what they said about her. With some
awkwardness, he tells her Kenzie's accusations and asks if they are true.
After staring at the baby, she tells Will that she was in rehab for drugs.
Assuming he won't want her around anymore, she walks out.
Elvis and his goons go down to the pier to meet Victor.
"We have him," Victor says. EJ guesses he means Stefano.
May 8, 2009
You Ready To Sell Your Soul?
the mansion, Stephanie refuses to let Philip keep her in the dark. She feels
entitled to know everything. "You ready to sell your soul?" he asks. He's
joking, but she's not laughing. He claims that he and his father are merely
taking care of the family. Tony's death still haunts him but what he and
Victor are doing is for the greater good. Wouldn't the world be a better
place without the DiMeras? Hearing him talk like that makes her scared. She
refuses to let anyone hurt him again and threatens to go back to EJ. He
threatens to kill Elvis if he ever lays a finger on her. Philip tells her
that he loves her and wants to go to bed and wake up with her every day.
"Will you move in with me?" he asks, looking into her eyes. She thinks this
is a big step."I need you so much," he says, kissing her. She agrees to move
in. He wants to celebrate. She leaves to get champagne. Whipping out his
phone, he makes a call and asks, "Is it done?" He grins. She returns and
asks him what that was about. He takes her hands and leads her to the
garden. Owen, the gardener, has prepared the yard for romance. They drink
champagne and he tells her that he likes who he is when he is with her. She
may not approve of what he does, but she has stood by him. Looking into her
eyes, he tells her she's beautiful, witty and wise, then gets down on his
knee to propose. She tears up and shouts, "Yes!" He slips the ring on her
meets with Victor at the pier. He soon guesses that Kiriakis has Stefano.
Victor hands him Stefano's ring. Elvis demands to know where he is. "The
Phoenix is not going to rise from the ashes this time. Not with the help of
a mere mortal," Victor says. He tells Junior that everything needs to end
right now. If he wants to see his father again, he has to send his guards
away. Elvis laughs. Victor reminds him that Tony turned on his own family,
therefore, no loyalty is owed to him. After EJ sends away his guards,
Victor's men grab him. He struggles. Victor takes his phone and explains
that he'll be blindfolded and taken to his father. They drag him to a dark
room and lock him in. When he finds the switch, he turns on the light.
Turning around, he's shocked to see a gurney with a sheet covered body on
at the DiMera mansion, Nicole goes up the stairs and Baker trails after her.
He wants 50,000 dollars. She doesn't have that kind of money to hand out. He
turns to leave and slips. Once he tumbles to the floor, she feels his pulse
and wonders if he's dead. She wonders where he could have hidden her
secrets. When she reaches for his wallet, he grabs her arm and then passes
out. Sydney begins crying. Mary the maid runs in, gasps at Dr. Baker and
begins compressing his chest. Nicole cringes as she leans down to do CPR.
The ambulance and cops arrive. Mary backs up Nicole's story about Baker
falling. She prays that he survives; a doctor who makes house calls is rare.
When Nicole checks in with the ambulance workers, they tell her that the CPR
saved Baker's life. She goes to the hospital with them. A doctor tells her
that Baker may have memory problems because of this. "Tragic," Nicole
comments. Once Baker is stable, she goes in to see him. He's grumbling and
asking where he is. She tells him he had an accident. "Accident? You tried
to kill me bitch!" he accuses.
walks into the Java Cafe and sees Will with his little sister. He tells her
he's not very good at babysitting and his friend bailed on him. Maggie
wonders if his friend is in trouble. He doesn't know, but gossip upset her.
Will wheels his sister away as Maggie's phone rings. As she gabs, Mia comes
in to get the jacket she left behind. Maggie begins probing. Mia's a bit
uncomfortable. Maggie offers to buy her hot chocolate. Mia tells her about
the gossip and how she let her friend believe it was true even though it
wasn't. "No matter how bad that gossip was, it was so much better than what
really happened," she explains. Maggie tells her all about her daughters and
how Melanie is just like another daughter. When she asks about Mia's
parents, she's not helpful.
and Rafe make out under the picnic blanket. She knows he never planned to
get her naked this way, but it feels right to her. Their canoodling is
interrupted when a cop shines a light on them. "Restricted area! You're
under arrest!" he bellows. As they get dressed, Sami tells him that this is
the most perfect first date she's ever had. It was romantic and
unpredictable. She's sure the best is yet to come. When they get back to her
place, they continue making out. The baby is heard crying. Will walks out
with her. Sami picks her up and worries that she has a fever again. After
she checks, she worries that this could be more than just teething. "This
didn't happen with any of my other kids," she says. Her son reminds her that
Grace was adopted. He offers to go to the pharmacy for her. Once he leaves,
Sami wonders how Rafe got so good with babies. He shows her his tickling
techniques. He tickles her into a chair. They make out some more. Grace
cries and interrupts. She's fine so Sami tackles him on the couch until the
baby disturbs them again. Sami shoves a pacifier in her mouth.
goes to the Java Cafe and runs into Maggie. They talk about babies and she
hurries off. He tries calling Mia to apologize and explains that he wants to
talk. After he hangs up, she comes out of the bathroom and sneaks out the
door behind his back. When he goes back to the townhouse, he shields his
eyes as his mother loudly giggles. He finds her and Rafe playing Scrabble.
After shaking his head, he goes off to bed. Sami and Rafe spell out words
like 'first' and 'date'. She apologizes for how the date has gone. He loves
Scrabble and promises her some perfect nights.
