application to take a leave of absence. The doctor walks over to the Java
Cafe. Chloe spots him before she can walk in and ducks away. Daniel sits at
the table and begins filling out the application form. As he thinks of
Chloe, he crumples it up to throw it in the trash. She walks in. He tells
her that he won't leave because it wouldn't change anything. No matter where
he lives, he still won't be able to sleep at night because they aren't
together. All he wants is for her to be happy, but this is maddening. "I'm
not happy. Not at all," she admits. That doesn't mean that her decision
about Lucas wasn't final... but Kate has been horrible lately.

Bo that they've found Stefano's body in a van but they don't know if he's
at the morgue, Owen helps Stephanie out of the drawer. He tells her that he
couldn't turn her over to the DiMeras. "I want to save you," he says. He's
not a monster and can't do what EJ wants. Owen just wants to see her happy,
far away from here. She begins tearing up. As he helps her down, he tells
her that this was fate. She promises not to tell the Kiriakis' anything. She
starts to worry when he tells her that they will be leaving together.

It Was Owen.
hurries over to the hospital to see EJ. He worries about his father. Lexi
rushes over and demands to know what happened. He fills her in and she rants
at him for all of the danger he has put his family in. As she runs off to
treat their father, Elvis says that he has to stop this mess. "Don't listen
to her. Lexi is dead wrong," Nicole tells him. He blames himself for
everything that's gone wrong and wants to tell his rivals where Owen is.
She points out that if he comes clean, he could end up in prison. Nicole
can't bear the thought of losing him. Lexi returns and explains that there
could be permanent damage to their father's organs and mind. After Lexi goes
back in, EJ says that he will make this right. Nicole reminds him that they
are married and need to make decisions together. Meanwhile, Lexi sits with
her father and holds his cold hand. Watching how he and Theo get along has
meant a lot to her. She wants a relationship with him too. "Please don't
leave me," she cries. As she tells him how much she loves him, he opens his
the pier, Victor accuses Brady of being a traitor. Bo defends him. Victor
repeats that Philip is out of town and they argue over what to do to prevent
Stephanie and Philip from being killed. They finally send Brady away and
continue to argue. Victor tells him to throw 'the book' away and points out
how many people's lives are at stake. He warns Bo that if anything happens
to Stephanie, it will be on his head. They bicker and Victor thinks this is
all about Bo's ego. He tells Bo that he acts dismissive and superior to him
all the time, treating his own father like a pariah. "You are not the father
that raised me," Bo says, and he's glad about it.

thing. EJ presses the ring into his father's hand and kisses him. He kisses

lesson about the Phoenicians and tells her that the ring makes him
the mansion, Melanie tells Philip how she found Steph's earring and saw his
gardener drifting around. As Owen comes down the stairs, he listens as
Philip tells Mel that it couldn't have been Owen. She points out that it had
to be an inside job. He accuses her of being behind this. She laughs until
she notices he's being serious. "You're insane," she says. She may be
annoying and self-absorbed but she's not bad enough to do something like
this. He has her go over the evidence again and then calls Henderson. The
butler explains that Owen took his latest check and left on vacation. "It
was Owen," Philip realizes, vowing to find him and kill him with his bare
hands. Hearing his, Owen sneaks out. "Sorry Stephanie. Major change of
plans," he says to himself. Back inside, Melanie tells Philip that he'll
need her help lying low while they search. They get Owen's file and discover
that they know virtually nothing about him. Brady comes to the door so they
run out the back.
returns to the mansion and finds Brady searching for Philip. He calls
Henderson and orders him to show Brady out and never let him in again.
Before Brady goes, he apologizes, but it doesn't mean anything to his
grandfather. Brady tells him that this mansion is a terrible place full of
bitter and angry people. He doesn't want to be a Kiriakis if he has to be
miserable and power hungry like the rest of them. "You're nothing but a
backstabbing bastard and I have no use for you," Victor barks. Brady walks
out. Meanwhile, Mel and Philip run around town. She digs up Owen's father's
address and they head to the morgue.
gasps in the morgue drawer while she runs out of air. Owen returns. When he
opens the drawer, he panics as he discovers that she's not breathing. He
gives her the breath of life. When she starts breathing, she slaps him away.
"I wish you hadn't done that," he says. When he threatens to put her back in
the drawer, she begs him not to. "Nothing is going the way it's supposed
to!" he shouts. He throws a tantrum and announces it's too late.
Hyperventilating, he pulls out a gun. "I'm sorry Stephanie," he says.

and Sami are rolling around in bed. His phone rings and wakes him up. That
was just a dream. Sami's on the phone. She wants to go over to the pub and

but she'll make sure that Steph knows. After storming off, she meets with
Sami at the pub. She admits that she sometimes wishes she had never told Bo
that Victor is his father. Sami tells her the good news about the adoption.
"You can't be serious?" Caroline asks in shock. That's not the reaction Sami
was looking for. Caroline thinks she shouldn't be giving parental rights to
a man she barely knows. Rafe walks in and announces that he just got a job.

all. "Everything I need to know," he insists.

this just to see the look on Steph's face when she realizes that she owes
her. He calls his father and Victor suggests that he take a trip.
the morgue, Owen ties Stephanie's hands. She doesn't think he'd shoot her...

his father, Gordon. Owen explains that he needs to keep a low profile for
awhile. Their conversation is interrupted when Mel comes to the door. Owen
returns to Stephanie. In the parlor, Mel weeps to Gordon about her dying
grandmother. Meanwhile, Owen ties Stephanie's wrists tighter. She begs him
not to put her back in the drawer. When he hears a voice, he muffles her
mouth, threatening to kill anyone who comes looking for her. As he drags her
into hiding, Mel and Gordon walk in so she can check out the set up. While
Gordon leads her out, she notices one of Steph's earrings on the floor. The
body deliveryman comes and Gordon ushers her out. Mel leaves and catches up
with Philip in the graveyard. She tells him what she found. He stops her

How Could You Do That To Me?
the pier, Mia tells Nicole that Sami is so nice she is letting Rafe adopt
Grace. Nicole says it's a great idea. Mia doubts her honesty and tells her
that she's sick of all of these secrets and lies. She's lived up to her end
of the bargain and doesn't want Nicole bossing her around anymore. She warns
Nicole that if she doesn't stay away, she will be sorry.
the pub, Sami catches Rafe telling Grace all about junk food. She teases him
and they talk about Caroline's reaction to the adoption. He's sure that they
can win her over but Sami thinks there may be something else wrong with the
idea. It's going to be harder telling her parents than anyone else. She
worries about what they'll say and wishes he really was Grace's father. He
tells her that he will be and, soon, she won't have any problems to worry
about. Nicole walks in and tells them that they look cute. They're defensive
and accuse her of being up to something. When she walks away, Rafe admits
that he wants EJ to find out about the adoption. Rafe is sure it will keep
EJ and Nicole off of their backs. Sami is still sure that Nicole is up to
something else. Nicole goes home and tells Sydney that it looks like Sami
has been neutralized. This means that they can concentrate on being happy.
Right now, she has to find out how to get EJ out of jail.
returns to the Java Cafe to see Will. She stumbles over her excuse about
where she was and he asks about her living arrangements. Mia complains about
it but has nowhere else to go. When he asks about her parents, she doesn't
want to talk about it. She doesn't want to drink any more coffee either so
she leads him out. They go out and play ski ball then return. He offers to
teach her how to bat. They leave again. After playing ball, he mocks her
co-ordination skills. She claims that she is 'poetry in motion' and does
some dance moves. He tries to mimic them and trips into her arms.
heads over to the hospital looking for Melanie. He discovers that she is
later than usual. A nurse tips him off that she saw her upstairs. Meanwhile,
Melanie and Philip are sneaking around the hospital. They hide when they
hear a man being brought in in a body bag. Once the men leave, Mel and
Philip figure out how to get him into a body bag and into the morgue. She
tells him to get naked and crawl into the body bag so she can bring the
spare stiff down to the morgue. She's distracted by the bullet hole he
reveals as he takes off his shirt. "I always thought this would be a once in
a lifetime thing," he says as he climbs into the bag. She offers to be his
back-up when he goes in. "What's in it for you?" he asks. She claims she
owes him. As they prepare to leave, Brady walks in. "What the hell are you
two doing?" he asks. They explain and Brady insists they go to Bo for help.
Philip is sure that this is the only way. Brady agrees to help them and they
zip Philip into the bag. Two men come and take the body away.
the morgue, Owen has his gun out. Steph insists that no one knows she is
there. He is paranoid about Melanie. They bicker but he insists that he
can't get out of this. Before he can duct tape her mouth shut, she warns him
that there is something he needs to know about Mel. She claims that Mel is
in love with Philip and wants her out of the way. Steph lists all of the
ways that Mel has tried to steal Philip and then begins coughing and asks to
be untied. He says that she can call her folks after they get to Canada. As
she thanks him for taking care of her, she peers up at his gun as it rests
on the slab. She tells him how nice he is and wonders what would have
happened if she'd met him first... They kiss. She picks up the gun but he
grabs it from her hands. "How could you do that to me?"
he asks. She claims that she is just scared of guns. He accepts this and
then gives her something to drink. She refuses but he forces her. Stephanie
passes out and he puts her back in the drawer.

and Brady lurk around by the graveyard. Suddenly, Owen leaps out and knocks
Brady out with the butt of his gun and levels the barrel at Mel.
the hospital, Lexi checks in on her father. He snarls at her. She says he's
recovering well. He's eager to get revenge. They begin arguing. He wants a
telephone. She won't allow it and tells him that he is a murder suspect.
Stefano wants his lawyer. "No problem," Abe says as he walks in. He wants a
little talk first though. The two men begin insulting each other until
Stefano demands that Abe leave. "Don't you let him die until we find
Stephanie. After that, I don't give a damn!" Abe growls. Outside, Abe makes
some angry calls. Lexi comes out and tells him that her father is stable but
