Baker Is Dead.
the park, Brady confronts Ari about what he just saw between her and Troy.
She insists he's overreacting and tells him that Troy was just high when he
hassled her and came to the pub to apologize. "You are a very forgiving
person," he says. She tells him he's taught her to see that people change.
He apologizes and hugs her. They make out. He wants to be alone with her but
his grandfather calls him and asks him to come home. She offers to go home
with him. He's impressed by the way she thinks and they run off. When they
get to the mansion, she jokes about smashing an ancient vase. She wonders if
they will ever be able to understand each other since he never had to
struggle to support himself. He suggests that the difference could make
things interesting. They make out in the living room and then he suggests
they swim. She doesn't have a suit. "I don't either," he says. That sounds
good to her. After their naked swim, they make out as they share a towel. He
asks her if she wants to go further. She doesn't want to stop.
stumbles around the pier with his shirt open. As he drinks, he calls Kate
and tells her he doesn't want things to end the way they left them. He's
sure there are more 'dark twists and turns' for them. She accuses him of
taping their conversation but he begs her to trust him and listen. He asks
to meet her in the flesh. After getting off the phone, she paces and wonders
if he is playing her. The phone rings. She answers and snaps before
realizing it's Lucas. He sadly tells her he needs her help deciding what to
do with Chloe.
and Nathan go down to the pier to meet Daniel. The intern is still reluctant
to help unless Daniel can convince him that he isn't out to finish the job
on Chloe. Daniel says that he was set up and only wants to save her. If Nate
says no, he will find another way, but he thinks that Nathan should remember
the oath he took to protect patients. Nathan agrees to go along with him. "Yay!"
Melanie cheers. As Nathan gets Chloe's chart, Mel warns Daniel that the
clock is ticking because Lucas is going to pull the plug tonight. When Nate
returns, Daniel grabs the files and says he has to give her the drug
himself. Nathan gets an idea.
meets his mother at the Cheatin' Heart. He tells her that it may be time to
take Chloe off of life support. "You just made me so happy," Kate blurts
out. He's shocked she can react like that. "Her mind is already gone," Kate
says. Her son explains that this means Daniel could be facing murder one.
Kate says that Justin may be able to save the doctor. They wonder what goes
on in Daniel's mind and then she reminds him he has a decision to make. She
tells him it's time to bring this painful chapter to a close.
the hospital, Melanie begins chatting up the guard outside Chloe's room.
Nathan slips past them and places the drug beside Chloe's bed before
knocking on the side door. As he slips back out, Daniel comes through the
side door. He stares into Chloe's eyes and weeps before reaching for the
drugs. As he fills the syringe, Kate and Lucas arrive outside. Lucas decides
he can't go through with this. His mother tells him to give himself some
peace and do it. He agrees. When he walks off to see the nurse, she decides
to go see Chloe for a final chat. As she approaches the door, Daniel
finishes the injection and tells Chloe how much he loves her.
the mansion, Nicole calls Stefano and tells him she needs to talk to him.
Elvis walks in and asks her why she is so desperate to speak to him. She
claims that she has pictures of Sydney to show him. He grabs her and tells
her to stop playing him for the fool. "This stops. I've had enough of it,"
he says. She claims she isn't hiding anything. He's fed up with her
deflections and furtive conversations. He orders her to prove how much she
cares by telling him what she wanted to talk to his father about. Stefano
wanders in and tells her to go ahead. He explains that they were planning a
surprise kick off for the honeymoon. Elvis hangs his head and apologizes.
The baby cries so he runs off to see to her. Stefano tells Nicole she is
losing her touch. She thinks everything is going to Hell in a hand basket.
He assures her that Dr. Baker isn't a problem anymore. She doesn't follow
what he just said and keeps worrying so he mocks her. She's sure that Rafe
will be pumping the doctor for information. "Perhaps we can kill two birds
with one stone," he says. EJ returns and Stefano makes himself scarce. He
apologizes for his paranoid predisposition. As they hug, Stefano interrupts
and sends his son off to take a business call. Nicole asks for an
explanation again. "Baker is dead," he tells her, spelling it out. She
thinks this means it will never be over. Nicole tells him about the letter.
"Who has this accursed letter?" Stefano demands.
arrives in the Dominican and sneaks into Dr. Baker's room. He tries talking
to him until he notices that he's turned purple and there is a rope around
his neck. Two people in masks ambush him and knock him to the ground. A
moment later, Sami comes in and finds him on the floor. She wakes him up.
When she tries to do the same for the doctor, she starts to scream. He knows
she may think he's a killer but he promises that he didn't kill Baker. She
stops hyperventilating until a knock comes to the door. It's housekeeping.
Rafe yells at them to go away and then tells Sami that he must have been set
up for this. He searches Baker's body, taking his phone and wallet. They
jump out the window when they hear the cops outside.
September 1, 2009
and Rafe are on the plane asking each other what they were doing in the
Dominican. She came looking for him. She tells him about Baker's call and how it
made no sense to her. Sami thought that Rafe might have real evidence against
the doctor so she followed him down. Still, she has the feeling he's not telling
her something. They bicker and that makes them soften to each other. She
remembers the lawyer's card they found on the corpse and wonders if he can help
them. When they get back to town, he walks her home and thanks her for rescuing
him. They share a lingering look until a text message from Doug and Julie
interrupts. They say goodnight and she asks him to stay safe. "I'll try," he
the mansion, Nicole tells Stefano all about the letter which Dr. Baker left
behind. He's outraged that she never told him about this. He rants and tells her
that all of her lies will now become public knowledge. "Isn't there a way we can
stop it?" she asks. A call comes in for him. After taking it, he explains that
he tried to frame Rafe but he left the Dominican before he could be captured.
Nicole has had nightmares about this. Stefano worries that his only son will
despise him for this. He calls around and tracks down Baker's lawyer before
sending his men off to fetch him. The lawyer soon arrives after being searched.
Stefano asks him about the letter. The lawyer claims it's a confidential matter.
Nicole tells him to name his price. Stefano warns him that his reputation is
well-deserved and he doesn't take no for an answer. The lawyer pulls out the
letter. Nicole looks it over. Stefano takes a call and then asks him not to talk
to Rafe. He suggests that he move far away and offers him a generous check.
After Stefano walks away, the lawyer admits to Nicole that there is something
else... there were two other letters he was told to mail and he already sent
them. One was for Mia and the other was for Sami.
walks out to the patio and interrupts Brady and Arianna as they make out under a
towel. "You have a room Brady, try using it," Victor growls before he walks
away. They get dressed, go up to his room and undress again. He tells her she's
beautiful and they have sex. They talk about when they met first and always used
to argue. When he slips off, she calls Troy and he tells her she has ten minutes
to get to the pier for a meeting with the boss. She gets dressed as Brady
returns and explains she has to go. As she heads for the pier, Victor is already
there waiting for her.
the hospital, Mel and Nathan are trying to cover when Lucas comes in to see
Chloe. She asks him what his decision about his wife was. He tells her it's none
of her business. She babbles. "You're ridiculous," he says, stomping off.
Meanwhile, Daniel finishes injecting the antidote into Chloe. He tries to tear
himself away as Kate looms at the door outside. The doctor tells Chloe he will
always be there for her. Nate runs up to Kate to stop her from going in. He
explains that he needs to check on the patient and take some notes first. When
he gets into the room, Daniel has just left. Mel smuggles him out to the park.
inside, Nate asks Lucas if he has second thoughts and suggests he wait a few
days. Lucas refuses. Kate is already in Chloe's room, telling her that Daniel
will never save her. As Lucas and Nate walk in, Chloe's heart rate suddenly goes
up. Nathan checks her out and says it seems to be a miracle. Kate smirks. Nathan
slips away and calls Daniel to tell him things are looking good but she's not
out of the coma yet. He returns to Lucas and Kate, telling them that they will
put things on hold for now. The intern calls Daniel again to tell him things are
still going well. He promises to keep Kate away from Chloe. Daniel walks through
the park and tells Chloe how much he loves her. At that moment, Chloe opens her
mouth and says, "Daniel."

him and they tease each other. She offers to get together in the park later.
Meanwhile, Victor is meeting with Constantine, his head drug dealer, and
Troy. He wonders why they want him to meet a dealer. Troy says Arianna moves
drugs faster than anyone else. Victor's ears perk up and then he hides as
she arrives. Troy introduces her to Mr. Constantine as the boss. She doesn't
believe he's really the boss and, if he is, she's out of this. After
threatening to take her business elsewhere if they don't give her a meeting
with the real boss, she walks away. Victor comes out of the shadows. "She's
very smart. I don't like this, I don't like it at all," he says. He orders
them to keep working with her until he figures out what to do. "Man Brady,
you sure know how to pick 'em," he mumbles.
the hospital, Kate tells Craig that Chloe's signs of recovery are just a
fluke and they should make 'Doogie Howser' pull the plug. He can't believe
her. Everyone walks into the room as Lucas stands there and Chloe mumbles
'Daniel'. Kate bites her lip as Chloe groans. They file out as Lexi checks
her over. Kate reminds her son that he made a decision and he should stick
with it. Lexi says that Chloe slipped back into the coma but her vitals are
much stronger. Craig thinks this is a great sign. Lexi explains that Chloe
actually spoke to her. She couldn't make it out though... Kate is dismissive
and Lexi wonders why she seems so insistent that Chloe won't get better. The
doctor explains that the choice is no longer Lucas' and they will be keeping
her on life support. Craig is thrilled and leaves to call his wife.12
is pacing around the park. Melanie wonders if he's okay. He thinks he's
losing it. Nathan calls and tells him that Chloe woke up and said his name.
Daniel is stunned speechless. He has to sit down. Nate explains what
happened to Mel. She laughs and hugs Daniel as Maggie arrives. Mel tells her
the news. Maggie gets giddy and Daniel runs off. He goes back to the mansion
and tells Brady the news. But things aren't over yet, he warns. They still
have to protect her from Kate and administer a few more doses of the
antidote. Brady urges him to stay calm and then leaves for the hospital.
Daniel picks up a photo of Kate and vows to make her pay.
gets to the hospital and Mel and Nathan fill him in on everything. They tell
him Craig is with Chloe now. Remembering their history, he gets
uncomfortable, but goes in anyway. Nathan asks Mel out to a 'mutual dining
situation' and they run off. Meanwhile, Daniel calls Brady and tells him he
has to stop Kate before she makes her next move. "Time to give Kate a taste
of her own medicine," the doctor says. Across the room, Kate is still trying
to convince her son to take Chloe off of life support. She insists that
everyone is grasping at straws and not really thinking about what Chloe
would want. "When you opened your eyes, it was like the sun came out... and
then you asked for him," he mutters as he stares in at Chloe. Maggie
arrives. She's surprised that Lucas looks so miserable. He tells her what
Chloe said and claims he can handle this on his own, regardless of what the
doctors think. Lucas goes into Chloe's room. He thinks of her saying how
much she loves Daniel. "I hate you," he tells her.
and Stephanie are at the Cheatin' Heart playing pool and making out. The
sleazy motel clerk walks in and, after leering a bit, calls a friend to
gossip about Philip's latest woman. Steph thinks they should clam down and
order some nachos. Philip tells Steph that he needs to prove himself to her.
In his family, they lie about everything. "There's something I think I
should tell you," he says. He wants her to know what a 'great dude' he is
and asks her to put the engagement ring back on. She thinks that's the next
logical step. As he slips it on her finger, Mel and Nate walk in. They get
called over to look at the ring. Mel and Nate awkwardly congratulate them.
Philip and Mel go to the bar to order champagne. She makes some pointed
remarks about him lying to get what he wants. He begs her not to start
crying. "You don't care if I cry. You just don't want Stephanie to see," she
says. She offers to keep their secret safe. While they argue, Steph tells
Nate that she's a lucky 'dudess' and she's learning to trust Philip. She
takes a piggyback ride on Philip's back and Mel and Nate decide it's time to
leave. The intern reminds her to feel happy about what they did tonight.
After they leave, Phillip and Steph also leave to take the next step in
their relationship. The sleazy clerk smirks and calls his associate to say
that they are going to make a killing on the video of Philip and Mel.

day and doesn't want to do that anymore. As they make out, Victor arrives
and interrupts. He has something to tell them both.
meets with Justin and tells him that there may be evidence to support his
theory that Kate has been behind Chloe's coma. He tells the lawyer about
Kate wearing gardening gloves and being protective of her appetizers. The
doctor explains that the poison will still be on the gloves if they can find
them. Justin warns him not to take the law into his own hands. Henderson
walks in and explains that Kate will be gone until tomorrow morning. Daniel

daughter in his care if they don't straighten a few things out first. Craig
has to leave to look after his family, but he needs to know that Lucas will
live up to his responsibility. They bicker. Craig knows his daughter had

he will never forgive her.

hides amid her dresses, she checks on her shoes before walking out to take a
shower. Once the water is running. Daniel finds the gloves conveniently
poking out of a dresser drawer. When he rushes to the door, Kate comes out
and demands to know what he is doing there. He claims that he just stopped
by to talk. She smells the booze on him. He tells her he came to apologize.
He's had time to think and has realized that she threw him for a loop when
she dumped him. Daniel claims that Chloe was just an attempt at revenge and

the Brady's. After seeing Ciara is awake, he offers to leave. Hope takes her
daughter into the kitchen. Dean tells Bo he's never killed anyone before and
is thinking of using the reward money to take time off. "I'm sorry but
you're not eligible for that reward money," Bo says. Hope comes in and
offers to work something out. She wants to make sure he's compensated. Dean
apologizes for barging in and leaves. "That man saved our daughter's life!"
Hope barks at her husband. He tells her they can't violate policy. Ciara

claims. Mags thought they would have been a done deal by now and tells her
to let Nate make the first move. Mel is baffled and says that she's not good
enough for Nathan. Maggie tells her to be proud of herself just like she is
proud of her. She would be 'totally okay' with them getting together. Nate

she can cheerlead. He brings up her mother and she refuses to talk about
her. "We're like going out and I don't know basic stuff about you," he
points out. "We're not officially official," she reminds him. He asks about
her diary and tells her that his mother's diary was stolen once and it
ruined her life. Meanwhile, Kinsey goes into the Java Cafe in her neck brace

She's right. Leaving her gloomy brother behind, she heads to the mansion to
make out with Brady. As they grope each other on the couch, Mel barges in
and tells Brady that he owes her. "There's... this video... the sex kind,"
she explains. It's her and Philip and it's on the internet. She worries that
this will ruin things for Philip and Steph, not to mention the fact that she
doesn't want every old perv she gave a sponge bath to watching it. She has a
pretty good idea who is responsible and tells him. Brady says he will take
care of it. She runs off to take her exam. Brady and Ari go to the sleazy
motel and take the same room Mel and Philip did. They corner the clerk.
