I Did All Of It For You!
on the other side of the world, Lawrence and Carly are busy calling each
other names. She ends the argument by shoving a knife in his guts. "You will
never find..." he gasps as he collapses. She wipes his blood off on his coat
and then grabs her bags before walking out. She jumps on a plane in some
sunglasses. As she drinks, she admits to her nosy neighbor that she is going
back to Salem.
drops by Chez Rouge to ask Maggie for a job. "Give her a job and I'll never
eat here again," Kate quips as she arrives with Stefano. Maggie defends Sami
for a second until Stefano stops her. Sami and Kate exchange barbs until the
new Mrs. DiMera turns her nose up and walks off. Maggie takes Sami aside and
tells her the economy is in bad shape but maybe she can come up with
something. She gives her an application and walks off. Meanwhile, Kate pouts
as Stefano orders a fattening meal. She worries about his diet. He assures
her he can take care of himself. Maggie returns to Sami and looks over her
holey application. She suggests she try at the pub instead. Sami would
rather work somewhere she doesn't know anyone. Maggie offers her work in the
office but Sami turns down the sympathy offer. She begins talking about how
much she's missed her children. "You're one hell of a mother," Maggie
assures her. Maggie returns to Stefano and Kate. As he stuffs his face,
Philip sneers from across the room.
bumps into Mia at the pier. He tries to assure her that everything is cool
for the moment. She's not that convinced and turns pale. She admits that
several people know that she had a baby. Brady worries but she assures him
that things have been taken care of. She even gave up Will to get back with
Chad and keep him quiet. "I'm sorry about that," Brady offers. Mia says it's
worth it if it helps her baby. After he leaves, Chad arrives. She admits
that she's upset about breaking up with Will. He's annoyed and wants her to
get over him quick. "Stop pressuring me!" she blurts out. He wonders how
things got so screwed up. She just wants to be normal and have fun but she
can't do that anymore. Chad says everything has changed for him too. As they
hug, Will arrives. He's hurt. Mia asks for time alone with him. Chad makes a
point of kissing her before he leaves. She tells Will that she cared about
him but still had feelings for Chad and they have stuff to work out. "If
that's how you want it," Will says. Mia wishes things could have been
different. As he walks away, she cries.
the mansion, Elvis is sure that his baby is dead. He orders Nicole to tell
him she lied. "Yes, I lied," she confesses in tears. He makes her say it
again and then demands every detail. Elvis accuses her of only caring about
the baby so she could use her to get money out of him. She admits that
Sydney isn't their biological child. He accuses her of laughing her ass off
all of the times she rejected his sexual advances and then tells her that
she's just as bad as Sami. He beats himself up for defending her when she's
turned out to be 'a lying, selfish piece of trash'. "I did all of it for
you!" she screams. He refuses to listen and drinks, accusing her again of
being after his money. Nicole asks him to imagine what it was like for her
to lose her baby. "My child is dead. I had two daughters. They both died,"
he says. After he polishes off a bottle of booze, he accuses her of buying
the baby. He puts his hand around her throat and asks for the answer.
strolls into the pub and sits with Bo who tells him he needs a lawyer.
Justin points out that domestic law isn't his thing. Bo rants about how the
separation is the wrong this for Ciara. He still doesn't want to make it
legal, so he asks Justin to talk to Hope for him. Justin urges him to be
careful and let things cool off. Bo can't be cool when someone takes his
child. He's never been this angry in his life.
runs into Daniel at the hospital and tells him that Lexi just gave her a
clear bill of health. They kiss and agree to meet up at lunch. She crosses
the room and runs into Philip. He feels awkward. "I'm sorry my mom tried to
kill you," he says. They talk about Lucas in rehab. She hopes he'll come out
alright. He gives her some annulment papers and a snide remark. Then he
notices her new engagement ring. They catch up on his mother's nuptials.
"The woman who tried to kill you married the man who tried to kill me," he
points out. After he walks off, Daniel returns. She weeps and shows him the
papers. She's still feeling guilty. He tells her that this is the first time
Lucas has been a man and made a hard decision so she shouldn't feel bad. "I
guess we are free now, aren't we?" she says.
October 6, 2009
You Are Sydney's Father.
the mansion, EJ continues to badger Nicole for details. "Are you enjoying
yourself?" she asks. He becomes outraged and screams at her, accusing her of
buying a baby from Dr. Baker. She reminds him that they have a beautiful
little girl and the only thing that will ruin their dream is him. He asks
her what she'll do when someone comes to the door looking for their baby.
She says that will never happen. He wonders if she would have been so
deceptive if she didn't think he was a pig. She admits that she's never been
convinced he loves her... just the baby. Elvis can't believe she's shrugging
these lies off. She reminds him that he's done far worse and only lied to
keep him happy. "I turned myself inside out for you," she says. He
sarcastically thanks her. His bellowing wakes up the baby. Nicole gets the
baby and asks EJ if he wants to hold her. He refuses. Nicole insists that
her love for him and the baby is real and she is their child in every way
that matters. "She's not my daughter," he says. Nicole urges him not to
punish the little girl. When he looks at her, he says that she's perfect,
but he can't do this. "I'm kissing her for the last time," he declares after
kissing Sydney. Nicole repeats that he is her whole life, but that's not
enough for him. Her lies put the child at risk. He would have sacrificed
himself for the child but it would all be for nothing because he has no
connection to her. "You do. You are Sydney's father," she says.
bumps into Philip at Chez Rouge. She tries to joke about Stefano and Kate.
He doesn't laugh. He thanks her for getting his brother into treatment. They
stare at Kate and Stefano as they eat. He assures her that there will be
consequences for what his mother has done.
tells Stefano that her son thinks they only got married as a form of revenge
for Philip killing Tony. Stefano thinks that's a vile idea. Kate beats
herself up as her son gawks at her. He finally wanders over to them and
begins accusing Stefano of coming there just to taunt him. "This is your
life," Philip tells his mom before walking out. He brushes past Daniel and
Chloe as they come in. They walk across the room after spotting Kate. They
sit down and order champagne, trying to pretend they are alone. The doctor
hands her a little box. It's a key to his apartment with the word 'love'
emblazoned on it. He knows it will be torture for them to live together when
they can't have sex yet but he'll look forward to it. As they kiss, Kate
watches and gets nauseous. When she rises to leave, Stefano convulses and
collapses. Daniel rushes over and they call for an ambulance. Kate asks if
he's going to be alright. "That depends on what you did to him," Daniel
snipes at her. The paramedics take Stefano away. Maggie and Chloe begin
sniping at Kate. "You go to Hell. Both of you!" Kate says, walking out.
goes to visit Grace's grave. She tells her that she is trying to be strong
for her but part of her is missing. "I'm afraid that I'm never going to be
whole again," she weeps. Will comes by and startles her. He comes by at
least once a week. They discuss the dreams they have of Grace and what her
laugh was like. After some sobbing, she tells him that Mia came by looking
for him and seemed upset. He tries to downplay it and they talk about Rafe
instead. They still can't believe he disappeared the way he did. Will tells
her that they were great together. Sami thinks she's blessed to have such
the pub, Bo tells Justin that what's happening with Hope doesn't make sense.
They talk about Justin for a change and he admits that he's having a hard
time with Adrienne. Bo thinks it's amazing how someone you feel you know so
well can take you completely by surprise. A call comes in. It's Carly but he
can't really make out her voice. The line goes dead. Bo says the voice
a plane, Carly drinks and thinks over her last fight with Lawrence. She
thinks about stabbing her husband and hopes that Bo can help her. She
remembers the early days with Lawrence and then the bad ones. On the other
side of the world, a servant finds Lawrence on the floor. He rolls him over
and checks his pulse. "He is dead," he gasps.

I Didn't Fall Off The Turnip Truck.
is running around at Sami's. Will tells his mother that they should just
have a fun night with the kids. She grumpily tells him that it's EJ's night
to have Johnny. She's been calling EJ all day but he hasn't called her back.
Will tells her that means Johnny can stay with them. She frowns.
the mansion, EJ continues lashing out at Nicole. She finally tells him that
he is Sydney's real father. Nicole glosses over this and says that he'd
believe her if Stefano was here. "She is your child," she insists. He
punches at the air and grunts. Before she can explain, Chloe comes in and
says that Stefano is in the hospital. Elvis orders Nicole to stay there and
plods off. Chloe asks what that was about. "He knows," Nicole says. She
explains that Sydney isn't her baby. Chloe's confused. Nicole tells her the
long story of losing her child and covering it up. Chloe doesn't know how
she thought she could get away with it. She advises her to take a step back
and not try talking to EJ right now. Nicole's afraid of giving him time to
throw her out. She asks her if Stefano will die. "I dunno," Chloe says.
Nicole decides to run off and see her husband and leaves Chloe with the
baby. Sydney laughs. Chloe rolls her eyes. Sami comes to the door with
Johnny. Chloe partially fills her in and hands her Syd before running off
and leaving her with the sippy cup. Sami tries calling Nicole and EJ so they
can take the kids off her hands.
calls Bo and tells him that she loves him and all is well. He wonders who
has been calling him then... Meanwhile, Carly is on the plane complaining to
the stewardess about the bad phone reception. She tries calling Justin, who
is baffled when he sees that he's receiving an in flight call. He and Bo
stare at the phone while Carly flashes back to her fight with Lawrence
again. The turbulence is really bad. The man next to her asks her to pray
with him. She freaks out and begins imagining Lawrence sitting beside her.
"You killed me Carly! Now you'll join me in death!" he says.
the hospital, Daniel orders Stefano tested for every possible poison. Maggie
is in the corridor with Kate, bickering. Maggie refuses to let her see
Stefano. "I didn't fall off the turnip truck," Maggie says. Kate reminds her
that her husband is a diabetic and he's been gorging himself. Maggie claims
that she saw her sprinkling something on Stefano's food. Kate strides off
and straight into Daniel. EJ rushes in and Daniel tells him that his father
had a heart attack and they are running a toxicology test. As the doctor
bustles off, EJ begins bickering with Kate who insists that Stefano will
vindicate her... unless he dies and then she will have controlling interest
in DiMera Enterprises. Daniel returns and takes Kate away. He explains that
while the heart attack was diabetes based, she exploited his weaknesses so
he would self-destruct. She insists that she would never turn on the man who
saved her. He bans her from going to her husband's room.
arrives at the hospital. EJ doesn't want to see her. "You mean nothing to
me," he says, ordering her to go home, take her daughter and get out of his
life. She begs him not to turn on his daughter. He refuses to listen and
suggests she has some kind of lying disease. He keeps calling her names and
wonders how he could have been so deluded. He storms into his father's room.
His sister tells him there has been no change with their father. He informs
her that Nicole is no longer part of his life.
is at home ordering a hot air balloon ride. After hearing him talk about
balloons, Victor guesses he's planning something involving a woman. He hopes
it's not Steph because she's depressing. Philip says it's someone 'unique'.
"Good God! It's Melanie Layton, isn't it?" Victor grouchily asks. Philip
doesn't want to chat about it, or any other woman he's interested in since
his father is a cynic and a misogynist. He brings up Mel saving Steph.
That's another point against her for Victor. He trashes Steph. Philip is
about to walk away when his father asks him to try 'selling' Mel to him.
goes home and walks in on Melanie and her flaming meat loaf. Since it's
chard to the core, he offers to take her out for dinner. He bashfully says
it doesn't have to be a date unless she wants it to be. When he asks her
what her ideal date would be, she draws a blank. He suggests jetting off to
Europe. She suggests Salem instead and decides to go to the Cheatin' Heart.
She needs to drop by the hospital first but tells him they better make their
first official date memorable.
October 8, 2009
I'm Drawn To Women Who Lie.
is at the mansion with Sydney. She's leaving messages for EJ, complaining
about being stuck there looking after the baby. She tries putting Syd to
sleep and tells her about Grace. When the baby won't sleep, she rings for
the butler and orders him to get some food for the child. The butler worries
that the baby might be broken.
the hospital, EJ fills his sister in on Nicole's deceptions. She can't
imagine how painful this must be for him. He muses about how much his life
has changed in only a few hours. Lexi tells him it will all work out. "I
think I'm drawn to women who lie," he says, suggesting that he looks for a
way to punish himself. Lexi suggests that he is very intimidating and the
women he gets involved with can't handle disappointing him. He says Nicole
assumed he was an 'uncaring brute' and played him for a fool. She's shocked
when he tells her he's thrown Nicole and Sydney out. He explains that he has
no rights over Syd. Lexi tells him to fight for custody. He's afraid it will
make things worse. Every day he fell more in love with Syd because he could
see himself in her eyes and he couldn't imagine living without her. That's
over now. All he can feel now is how pathetic he is. Lexi tells him not to
blame himself for trusting Nicole.
pops in to see Stefano. Daniel doesn't know if he'll make it. She asks for
some time alone with him. After the doctor leaves, she sits by Stefano's
side and weighs her options. Nicole has to do what's right for Sydney. She
can't leave town... she loves EJ too much. "You can't help me now, maybe
never... so I have no choice," she says. She thinks she needs to give EJ
some room, but she is going to fight for her family and never give up.
"They'll have to kill me first," she vows. When she walks out, EJ corners
her to tell her to leave. Sami comes in with Sydney and asks them what's
going on. They tell her about the heart attack. Sami asks him if he wants to
hold his daughter. He stares at Nicole.
drops by Maggie's looking for some information from Maggie. Nate hands it to
her. She sniffs at the stench of burning in the room and he explains Mel's
cooking flop. Before Steph leaves, she spots an ad for hot air balloon
rides. They talk about how much they want to take one and she asks him to go
up with her tonight. Realizing that she is being pushy, she stops herself.
He tells her that he already has plans with Mel. She leaves.
the Kiriakis compound, Philip is offended when his father asks him to 'sell'
him on Mel. He says that Mel is refreshing because she is tough and accepts
him for who he is. Victor seems impressed and then gets a call and chuckles.
"Stefano DiMera just had a heart attack," he says. "Mom!" Philip gasps,
runs into Daniel at the hospital and asks him about Stefano's heart attack.
After he rushes back to work, Kate comes in and begins suggesting that Mel
is trying to seduce Daniel. They trade insults and Kate accuses her of using
Philip. He walks in on cue to calm them down and orders his mom to leave Mel
alone. Kate reminds him that he is rich and Mel is not and then walks away.
Mel thanks him for defending her honor. He gets distracted by a business
call and she slips away. He asks Daniel where she might have gone. The
doctor says she's gone to the Cheatin' Heart. After Philip leaves, Steph
arrives and chats with the doctor. She tells him about her personal life and
she's feeling like a fool because Nathan is dating Mel. "I wish them well.
Onward and upward, right?" she says. Steph heads over to Chez Rouge to talk
to Maggie about fundraising. They chat about Nathan and Maggie asks what's
happening between them. Steph says nothing has happened. She was interested
in him until she discovered he was going out with Melanie.
goes back to the mansion. Victor arrives to mock her about her lack of
poisoning prowess. He pushes his way in and she tells him that she will be
Stefano's proxy at DiMera now. This means EJ can't throw her out and Victor
will have to deal with her in the business.
tracks Mel down at the Cheatin' Heart. She's awkward. Nathan walks over and
Philip guesses they are on a date. Mel notices Brady walk in and rushes over
to him and tells him that if he's looking for Nicole, she's at the hospital.
He gets worried about what EJ might have done to her. Mel wonders why.
Meanwhile, Philip taunts Nathan about bringing Mel to the bar for their

Everything Is Wrong.
the hospital, EJ stares at Nicole. Nicole stares at Sami. Elvis finally
tells her just to hand the baby to Nicole, who takes the child and walks
away. Sami asks EJ what is going on. They go into the waiting room and he
tells her that she knows better than anyone that he can't tolerate lies and
betrayal. "Now I've lost another daughter," he says. Sami doesn't get it and
defends Nicole. "That's rich coming from a woman who, just a few months ago,
was telling me what a lying tramp she was," he points out. She says Nicole
used to be awful and selfish but all she cares about now is her little girl.
EJ says she's the same as she always was. She's not the mother of his child
and never will be. "Sydney is not my child," he clarifies. She's confused.
He explains that Nicole miscarried and then faked the pregnancy before
adopting a child. Sami thinks this takes the cake. He doesn't see how this
is any worse than what she did to him. "I had two daughters and I lost them
both," he says. They argue and she tells him that he may have lost Grace,
but he can still have a little girl if he wants her. He worries about how
his family will handle this. She tells him to get over himself. "What upsets
you the most is that Nicole outsmarted you," she suggests. He explains that
she had Brady's help and he will pay for it. Sami tells him not to hurt her
brother. They wonder who Sydney's real parents are. He's clueless and sadly
tells her how he let his guard down because he truly loved Nicole and wanted
to give her his heart. "I think I was blinded by that love," he says, vowing
that it will never happen again. Elvis asks to see his son immediately. They
go to the pub and wake the child up so EJ can cradle him. "At least I still
have you," he says.
the Cheatin' Heart, Nate tells Philip that he's pathetic for chasing after
Mel to substitute for Steph. Meanwhile, Mel and Brady are at the bar. She
asks him if he's worried because Elvis has figured out that he's in love
with his wife. Brady says that EJ may be an ass, but Nicole loves him and
he'll do what he can to keep them together. He hurries off. She walks over
to the men and Nate leaves to take a call. Mel asks Philip if he was
battling for her affection. He tries to play it cool but she coos about how
'dreamy' Nathan is. Philip says he's a lucky guy. Nate returns and his rival
departs. They sit down and joke around about work. He tries to impress her
with his 'party trick' and takes her hand, feeling up her pressure points.
They go outside and she giggles nervously. When she asks him if he has any
more tricks, he leans in to kiss her but has to answer his phone. Then her
phone rings. It's Maggie both times. They don't pick up and finally kiss.
is at Chez Rouge talking to Maggie about Nathan. Maggie's disturbed that Mel
and Nate are dating. Steph admits that she is still in love with Philip but
that's not enough and she can't jerk him around anymore. Maggie runs off
when there is an emergency in the kitchen. Steph turns around and finds
Philip smirking at her. They chit chat. She probes about his problems but he
tells her not to worry. He's reluctant to talk. She asks him to have a drink
and be friends. He doesn't think that's possible. Maggie returns and they
discuss Mel and Nathan dating. She goes back to the kitchen and Philip tells
Steph again that he is trying to move on. Unfortunately, Mel moved on
without him... He's also finally realized that he and Steph will never be
right for each other. Philip drifts away.
takes Syd to the park and assures her that she will figure something out.
Brady rushes up and asks her what's wrong. "Everything," she says, hugging
him. She tells him this is about more than Stefano checking into the
hospital. EJ knows about her miscarriage and getting Syd from Dr. Baker. He
tells her how sorry he is but she's skeptical. "It all happened just like
you said it would," she moans. She blames all of this on him and his
slipups. She's sure he wanted this to happen. He reminds her of everything
he's done for her. He repeats that he will be there for anything she needs
or wants. All she wants is a good life for Sydney. She doesn't know what to
do next. He worries but she assures him she will come up with something.
Brady thinks that EJ might decide that he wants the child but not her. She
won't let that happen. "What if Mia wants her back?" he asks. She can't deal
with that and suggests that Elvis will wake up in the morning and take her
back. Brady seriously doubts that. After he leaves, Nicole sits down and
says, "Oh Sami... I'm so sorry. I never wanted it to turn out this way." She
can't give her little girl up.
