Guess How Much I Love You?
is sharing pudding with Sydney at the pub. She tries to reassure the child
that they will be back with EJ soon. Chloe comes in and joins them. Nicole
talks about how hard it's been but she's sure EJ won't turn his back on his
little girl. Chloe suggests it might be better for her to walk away
considering what kind of man Elvis is. Nicole has no illusions about her
husband and ignores her advice, announcing that she is going home. When
Nicole leaves, Lucas calls to make sure that the annulment papers went
through. He's on step nine of his program and needs to make amends, that's
why he signed the papers. He'll never forgive her for what she's done to his
daughter though and bans her from having any role in her life. "Why can't
you leave my son alone?" Kate asks as she hovers over Chloe. She sits down
and tells her she wishes she had died in the coma. Chloe points out that
Lucas called her and that neither of Kate's sons are calling her. She rubs
her 'happy ending' with Daniel in her face and walks off. Kate doesn't think
Victor is going to let her have a happy ending.
paces the mansion and begins reading Sydney's book, "Guess
How Much I Love You?" Kate sticks her head in. She sits down and tells
him he's going to be much better off not having Nicole in his life. He
forbids her to bad mouth Nicole in his presence. She smirks. He starts
packing her stuff when Nicole walks through the front door to announce she
is back to stay. She plays up how guilty he must feel about turning his back
on Syd. He tells the baby he misses her, but in spite of all they've shared,
he won't take her back. Everything that happened between them is just a
memory and he no longer has a heart. Nicole begs. "Don't grovel," he orders,
opening the door and telling them to leave. He shuts the door in their
called Bo over to the mansion to ask him why Kate is still walking the
streets. Bo doesn't have any evidence of her crimes and thinks that his
father may be jealous of Stefano. "He's more than welcome to the shrew,"
Victor says. He shows Bo an article about Lawrence's death. Bo thought he
would never die and wonders what is up with Carly. Victor is less
sentimental, he was married to her once after all. He reminds Bo of the
vulnerable position he's in now and tells him to stay away from Carly. Bo
doubts he'll ever see her again. Victor tells him he's the only man in the
family who has gotten it right when it comes to women and advises him not to
screw things up the way he has. He even offers to go and get Hope and bring
her back to town. Bo turns him down, sure that his wife will come home when
she is ready.
drives out to meet Hope. They catch up and she says that staying away has
helped her heal, but before she does anything else, she needs a lawyer. She
hands him a form. He looks it over and tells her she doesn't need a lawyer.
Hope insists that she needs to put Ciara in a special school and this is the
only way it will happen. Justin isn't sure that this is a good idea and
tells her how crazy Bo is going without her. She makes it clear that she
doesn't want her marriage to end and assumes Bo knows that. Justin tells her
that making assumptions is a mistake and suggests she call her husband. She
can't handle that right now and is sure he will understand. After Justin
departs, Hope hangs out with Ciara. She misses her father and wonders when
they can go home. Hope promises it will be soon.
is on a boat reading the paper and remembering stabbing Lawrence. When Omar
comes in, she thinks back to living on a boat with Bo. She confesses to Omar
that she stabbed her husband and doesn't regret it and claims that he did
something horrible. Carly doesn't elaborate. There's a flashback of her
telling Lawrence that he took her life away from her because of what she
did. They argue about their son and he reminds her that she knows why she
isn't allowed out of the house anymore. Snapping out of the flashback, she
asks for a phone. While Omar gets one, she thinks back over her last fight
with Lawrence as they bickered over her plans to stop him. Omar comes back
and tells her that any call will be monitored so they decide not to risk it.

I Need You To Stay Quiet.
Sami paces her house and calls Nicole, leaving a
message offering her help. Roman arrives with Ari. "Oh God! It's about Rafe,
isn't it?" Sami asks. That's not it. Meredith has vanished. The two women
assume that this is suspicious, especially since they got messages from Rafe
the day before she disappeared. Ari rushes off and Sami worries to her
father. After he leaves, she paces around and decides to look for a way to
help Rafe. She goes over to the cemetery to visit Grace and asks her to look
out for Rafe.

miserable. She pries into how his plans to save Nicole went. He admits that
he accidentally smashed Nicole's house of cards apart. She tells him that
love makes people go insane and they aren't culpable if they act stupid. He
explains how he slipped up and the details of the miscarriage and baby swap.
He wishes he had never gone along with any of this. Mel insists that this is
not his fault and he can't blame himself. Nicole would have done this with
or without him. He decides to take a jog and assures her he won't do
anything stupid. "I'm on your side. We're going to get through this," she
says. When he jogs off, he sees some people dealing drugs. He resists the
temptation and tells himself he's fine. Meanwhile, Mel goes to the pub to
tell Ari that she screwed up Brady's life by betraying him.
In an alley, Chad compliments Will on his running. Will

shows up at Maggie's to see Mia and begs for a favor for Sydney. Chad tries
calling Mia and leaves a message, asking if they can meet up later. Nicole
tells her to pay attention to her and not her messages. "It's out. The truth
about Sydney," Nicole explains. She's sure that if she can talk EJ around to
seeing that the baby is his in all of the ways that count, he will forgive
her and take her back into his heart. "I need you to stay quiet," Nicole
tells her. Mia can't do that and won't be bullied. Now that EJ doesn't want
her baby, she won't have any better a life than Mia could give her on her
own. Nicole claims she has everything under control and EJ won't give up on
his daughter. "Is EJ going to give up on you?" Mia asks. Nicole thinks
everything will resolve itself. Mia finds that hard to believe and complains
that she just broke up with Will for nothing. Nicole tells her that everyone
has made sacrifices and Syd is worth it. Mia is sick of being pushed around
and asks her how she thinks Chad would feel if he found out her rehab
counselor adopted her baby. Chad walks in as she says this.

album and weeps. He walks outside and runs into Brady by the pier. Brady is
busy beating himself up about his problems. EJ is looking for someone to
beat up too, for what Nicole has done to his life, and since Brady was
involved, that makes him an ideal candidate.
arrives at the pub to see Bo. He adjusts his tie and tells him he went to
see Hope. He hands him some papers to transfer Ciara to a private school. Bo
agrees to sign. After he does, they chat about Lawrence and Carly. Bo
assumes she must be in seclusion now. He assures Justin that whatever other
relationships he's had, his heart only belongs to 'Fancy Face'.

I'm Her Father.
Maggie's, Nicole tells Mia again that she needs to keep quiet to protect
Sydney. Mia is sick of being pushed around. As they argue about what Chad
would think of her 'rehab counselor' adopting her baby, Chad walks in and
begins ranting at them. He's sick of everyone keeping him in the dark and
refuses to leave until he gets the whole story. Nicole suggests that he get
lost. He reminds Mia that he's her boyfriend again but he doesn't want her
back if she's only doing it to shut him up. Nicole tells him to back off and
leave Mia alone. Mia explains again why she got back with him and Chad
demands to know why Nicole is so concerned. The argument continues and Chad
finally guesses that Nicole must have adopted the baby. After some bullying,
Mia admits it. Chad demands to see his daughter. "Sydney is not your baby,"
Nicole says. Mia weeps and urges him to listen. His mouth hangs open and he
repeats that he has rights. Nicole challenges him and asks him how he could
even raise a child with no job in this economy. Chad continues to bicker
with them and then storms out, determined to see his daughter.
the pier, EJ lays into Brady for helping Nicole deceive him. Brady admits it
and says he would do it again in a heartbeat. EJ thinks he just did it to
make a fool out of him. Brady tells him he pushed Nicole to lie to him.
Elvis rants and throws his arms around, accusing Brady of being in love with
Nicole. They continue taunting each other and Brady repeats that he only
wants his friend to be happy. He's sure it's beyond EJ to understand how
Nicole could love him so much. EJ says she's 'morally vacant' and needs to
be punished. Brady asks if the same is true about the baby. EJ explodes.
Brady says he's glad how things have turned out because he doesn't deserve a
daughter like Sydney. Elvis sulks his way home and remembers telling
fairytales to Syd. The doorbell begins ringing. EJ tries making a phone call

ocean. She notices the blows on his head and worries that he could die if
they don't get him to the hospital. Rafe begins to mumble about Sami and
remembers the sponge baths she gave him. Carly tells Rafe that she didn't
come all this way to watch someone die. Lawrence's ghost appears and taunts
her. She says she's glad she killed him and he deserved to die. He promises
that his people will find her and make sure she is punished. After he
vanishes, she returns to trying to revive Rafe. Carly asks Omar if they can
pull over at the nearest port to get him to a hospital. A few moments later,

and Daniel are at his place making out when a baby begins crying. He looks
confused. She brings out Sydney and talks about how nice it is to look after
her. Since the baby is frowning, they wonder what's wrong with her. Daniel
changes her diaper and she smiles. "I have a way with women," he says. When
Chloe tells him he'll make a terrific dad, he looks worried. Syd drinks a
bottle and Daniel offers to make an omelet. Chloe reminds him he has no
food. When she mentions children again, he looks unhappy so she asks him
what's up with that. The doctor says they should talk about it some other
time. Chloe says that what she wants more than anything is a family. He says
they need to take this slow. She wonders why he is being so cautious but he

The Tides Have Turned.
is at home flipping through the family album. Memories of his mullet are
interrupted when Ciara rushes through the door and leaps into his arms. Hope
follows but stays in the doorway. Ciara tells him they will come and visit a
lot. "Visit?" he asks. Hope sends her upstairs, and tells him that she
needed to be back in Salem, but not in their house. He tries playing the
nostalgia card and asks her to look at the photo album with him. She's not
in the mood. It feels like their past has come back to haunt them. They've
accumulated resentments over the years, everything from the kidnapping to
Patrick to his covering up for Chelsea. Bo says that he loves her more than
he's ever loved anyone and asks her what else she could want. She loves him
too but they can't ignore their problems. Hope leaves Ciara with him and
is shocked when Brian shows up in the ship's cabin and pulls a gun on her.

was offered a hundred grand to take her out. Rafe suddenly clobbers him and
Carly grabs the gun. Omar comes in and they tie up Brian. Carly tries
talking to Rafe but he passes out again. His fever is bad and she wants to
get him to a hospital. "The baby. Tell her about the baby," Rafe mumbles.
confronts Brady about the lies he's told for Nicole. He goes over the
miscarriage ordeal. The whole thing is still mysterious to Sami, but she's
sure that he must be in love with Nicole. He tries to leave but she
apologizes for presuming too much. She feels bad for Nicole too and wishes
she could help.
"I'm Sydney's father," Chad tells EJ as he stands on
his doorstop. EJ chokes on his rage and asks him for his name and details.

runs over to Daniel's to get her baby. She tells Chloe that her plan has
turned into a disaster. She babbles and says that "some stupid bastard" is
trying to ruin her life. Daniel decides to make himself scarce. Nicole would
like to explain but things are complicated. EJ calls Nicole and asks her to
come by. After she runs off, Chloe and Daniel have a drink and kiss. She
wants to actually have sex again. As they get started, Victor shows up at
the door and interrupts. He asks her to cover up. Daniel lets him in and
Victor explains how badly he feels about calling Chloe a 'whore'. He takes
out the pocket watch which Daniel's father gave him on the day of his
christening. Victor doesn't feel like he's been living up to his role as a
'guardian angel'. Handing it to Daniel, he asks him to take it as a symbol
of his effort to protect and embrace him. Before he can leave, Daniel tells
him that Chloe is living there and will be with him for the rest of his
life. Daniel leaves to take a call and Victor admits to Chloe that he still
doesn't trust her. He thinks she's fickle and eats men up before spitting
them out. However, he will still give her a chance for Daniel's sake. After
he walks out, he mumbles to himself, "That bitch is going to self destruct
and I'm gonna have a front row seat." He wanders down to the pier and meets
with Brady to tell him that Daniel is a fool. Chloe nearly destroyed Brady
and Philip's life so he won't let her destroy Daniel's.
Nicole arrives at the mansion, she's not happy to see EJ standing with Chad.
"What is that boy doing here?" she asks. EJ is sure she knows and tells her
to put the baby down. Chad looks at the baby and then Elvis tells him to
wait outside. Nicole accuses her husband of tricking her to come back. He
asks for the whole truth. "She's not even legally yours, is she?" he asks.
She begins crying. Chad knocks and they let him in. EJ won't let him take
the baby away, but says that he can see her. "This isn't over," Chad vows.
He glares at Nicole and walks out. "I knew you would do what's best for
Sydney. You're going to help us, right?" Nicole asks her husband, assuming
even he can see that 'idiot boy' can't be a better parent than her. "I would
die before I let that jerk take my baby!" she shouts as Sami walks in.

too and hugs him, explaining that she lied about her child - she knows where
she is. Mia explains that Nicole adopted her and now Chad knows and he's
freaking out. She confesses that she just got back together with him to
protect her baby. Mia never wanted to break up with Will but she had to.

Off The Hook.
runs into Ari as he's about to leave the mansion. He lets her in. She wants
him to forgive her and she's worried about him. "You're off the hook. I
absolve you," he says. She asks him what's really wrong and wonders why he
is acting so strangely. He thinks she must be worried that he's on drugs
again. While he admits that he's a mess, that doesn't mean he's using again.
She probes about Nicole and he says this has nothing to do with her. Brady
wonders if she feels threatened by Nicole. She tells him that she was
confused when she broke up with him and he's really amazing. When she stops
herself, he guesses what else she had to say and kisses her.
shows up at Maggie's, fresh from seeing his little girl. Mia thinks he's
ruined everything for Nicole now that he has gone to EJ. Chad says that
Nicole is not keeping his baby and he's getting her back. He can't believe
he was suckered by her promises and calls her a 'whore' for offering herself
to him to get what she wants. Mia admits that she 'whored herself out', but
that only proves how much she loves her baby. She asks for some time alone
with Chad. After Will is gone, Mia apologizes to Chad for hurting him. Her
words don't mean much to him. He keeps ranting at her, but she says this
should be about what is best for their daughter. Chad says that's what
concerns him. "I hate you," he tells her. After he says that he will fight
for the baby without her, he storms out. Will comes in and hugs her, telling
her that he loves her and will help her through this. She loves him too and
wonders who can help them stop Chad.
matter what happens, you can't let anyone take your daughter from you. Don't
you dare let anyone take her from you! No one!" Sami bellows as she walks
into a conversation between Nicole and EJ. Elvis throws her out, which only
makes Sami more determined to help Nicole. He admits to his wife that he was
re-thinking things until Chad turned up. He wants Syd back, but not her.
"What you did was cruel and selfish," he says, refusing to let her keep the
child from her father. She points out that even Mia didn't think that Chad
could be a father. EJ has been in Chad's position before and won't let
another mother keep a father from his child. He screams at her that the
baby's parents want her back and will get her. Nicole urges him to fight for
the child with her and begs him not to throw away the love he still feels
for her. "Get out of my life and take that with you," he orders. Weeping,
she picks up Syd and walks out.
goes to Grace's grave and sobs. Maggie interrupts and gives her a hug. Sami
cries as she talks about the pain of losing a child and how she would do
anything to stop another mother from going through that pain. Maggie advises
her to be safe when helping her friend. Sami hops away. She hurries back to
the mansion and finds Nicole coming out in tears. After Nicole walks away,
Sami storms into the mansion to yell at Elvis. He says she has no idea what
she's talking about and tells her about meeting Syd's father – Mia's
ex-boyfriend. Sami puts things together and is stunned. He relates the
sordid story and she admits that she did the same thing with Grace and would
do it again. She reminds him that he loves Sydney and should help her by
keeping her with the only mother she's ever known. "Help Nicole keep her
baby," she says.
Daniel startles Chloe when she comes through the doors. She drops her
groceries. When he gets down to help her, his towel falls off. She tries to
get him to cover up, but they can't resist jumping on top of each other
before stopping themselves. Father Matt calls and Daniel runs off to take a
cold shower. When Daniel returns, fresh from his shower, she explains that
the annulment went through. He wonders why she seems so unhappy. She hugs
him and explains that she's never been as certain about anything as she is
about them, she just wishes it wasn't at Lucas' expense. He's impressed by
her compassion and tells her they don't have to wait anymore. They make
goes to see Stefano at the hospital and complains about how Chad is screwing
everything up. He'll demand a paternity test and that will only make things
worse. Quickly, the whole truth will come out and she'll lose Syd. "It's
finally over for me," she cries. Refusing to give up, she wonders what
Stefano would do. He'd probably make Chad disappear, by money or
blackmail... but maybe something else might work. She calls him and offers
to work something out.
