reads them over and realizes what they are. They wrestle and he tells her to

Mel has a record in Europe, even if the charges against her there were

money, Philip arrives. He tells her that he is bailing her out and then
talks about how much he admires Nathan for saving Chloe. She explains that
it was all Daniel's idea. Philip is angry and tells her that his mother is

off the ground. He hobbles to the hospital where one of Stefano's men,
dressed as a cop, grabs him. Before he can take him away, Lucas comes out
and punches Daniel. The nurse comes and gets Daniel. They give him an x-ray
and realize he's had a head injury. Lucas calls his mother to tell her that
he's just been arrested for punching Daniel. As she leaves for the station,

out. "Are you doing this because you want to be Melanie's savior?" she asks.

comes in and gives her the release papers to sign and then tells them to
stay out of trouble. Philip returns and Nathan tells him that he won't let

for what?" Bo asks. She informs him that they are leaving. Being in the
house isn't healthy for Ciara and she needs a new environment. They're going
to stay at Doug and Julie's vacation house. She asks him not to take time
off because he's not coming with them. The tension in their marriage is
making things worse for Ciara. "You gambled with our daughter's life," she
says. This makes him furious and he accuses her of trying to put him through
hell. He thinks that she is looking for a reason to leave... just like when
Zach died. "You pushed me away," she says. They argue more and she tells him
that they have nothing without trust. As he gets angrier, Justin arrives to
speak to Hope. Bo walks out. Justin advises her to go after him. "If you let
him go, it will be the biggest mistake of your life," he says. She explains
that this isn't about leaving, it's about healing. He doubts leaving will
help. Later, as Hope packs, Bo plays with Ciara. When Hope comes downstairs,
Bo asks her if Justin was here looking forward to their first night
together. She tells him that his saying that makes her know it's the right
thing to leave. Bo hugs his daughter and tells her that he'll miss her. He
watches as they leave.

and a future full of happiness. "To a beautiful wife who has taught me so
much about love and honesty," he says. She toasts to a new life, but he
stops her, saying that he's perfectly happy with things as they are. He
can't think of any reason why they can't be together forever. However, he
has a confession to make. If she hadn't been pregnant, he never would have
married her. He can only admit this now because he's realized that she and
Sydney are the best thing that's ever happened to him. She looks
meets Victor at the pub so he can fill him in on what happened with Chloe.
Now that he has Daniel off the hook, he knows the suspicion will fall on
Kate and he's afraid that Philip will want his head for it. Victor offers to

of him. Brady decides he should settle things with Philip himself. When

Daniel that he is well enough to go home. He's not leaving until Chloe is
released. Father Matt arrives and Chloe asks for some time alone with him.
She tells the priest that she broke her vow and has been punished. She
wonders if the punishment will ever stop. "How can God expect me to give up

suffered enough. If she embraces what is in her heart, she will feel God's
blessings. She thanks him. After he leaves, Daniel returns. They make out

takes Mel home and asks her what is going on between her and Nathan. "Why?
Do you care?" she asks. He smirks and pretends he doesn't care. When they
talk about saving Chloe, she starts to think he's upset with her for siding
against his mom. He claims that he isn't upset, he just doesn't understand
what would make her risk so much for Daniel. "That would be me," Brady says
as he walks in. After he explains, Philip is outraged that he has been
disloyal to the family. Before they can punch each other, Mel gets between
them. Philip orders Brady to leave Mel out of his hero games from now on.
After Philip storms out, Brady wonders what's wrong with him. She tells him
that Nate and Philip have been fighting over her and starts to giggle.

Lucas reduced. Lucas and Roman file out leaving Kate and Stefano to talk.

evidence is all pointing against her. Lucas returns and tells his mom to
live it up with her new husband because he's all she'll have from now on.
After he storms off again, Roman tells her that they have new evidence
against her... sort of. Everywhere she went has been completely wiped clean
and that means she's had someone's help covering things up. Kate's tired of
listening to this and leaves.

getting hitched again," Stefano explains. His daughter is shocked,

everyone can live in peace and harmony. Lexi is far from convinced that that
is what this is all about. EJ calls her to check in. She tells him their
father is losing his mind. She offers Stefano the phone but he refuses to
speak. After she makes an excuse and hangs up, she asks her father why he is
keeping Elvis in the dark. He changes the subject and asks her to stand up
for him at the wedding. She thinks this is insane but agrees to do it if it

Stefano. "She marries that man and she's not my mother anymore!" Philip
bellows. Lucas tells him that he's the only one who can stop their mother.
He wonders if this could just be cosmic payback for everything their mother
has done. Marrying Stefano must be worse than prison, Lucas says. Philip is
sure that this is just Stefano's sick way of getting payback for what
happened to Tony.

walks into her room at the mansion. She defends herself and tells him that
Daniel is scum. Victor tells her to take what she can carry and get out –
he's making sure that she is completely cut off. She puts on perfume. "You
want to smell nice on your trip to skid row?" he asks. She tells him to
congratulate her on getting married and smugly says that there is no proof
against her. When she informs him that she's marrying Stefano, he laughs
hysterically. He's sure she won't go through with it since it will cost her
Philip. They throw blame back and forth until she admits that she doesn't
want to do this but she can't go to jail. Victor starts to think that it's
best that their son will finally see her for who she really is. "I'm a
survivor," she says. He agrees, but adds that she'll also end up alone. Once
Victor leaves, she calls Lucas and invites him to the wedding. When she

Kate has been wiped clean. Stefano walks over and tells Roman that his
presence will upset his bride. Roman hangs around as Victor arrives. He and
his old enemy trade barbs and Stefano threatens to throw him out. Victor

'till death do us part' a viable option to divorce. He points out that
Philip was storming into the house to see his mother just as he was leaving.
Stefano calls Kate to tell her again that, as long as she is with him, she
is safe. "I'll be right there," she tells him. Hearing this, Philip tells

client. They try to be mature about the situation but he hates doing that.
She gets him some coffee on the house and he taunts her about the man she
left him for. She admits that her ex isn't coming to Salem. "Most imaginary

worse. Sami warns him that if he doesn't stop his downward spiral, she will
never let him see his daughter again. He's heard this from her before. "I
don't have to lie this time. You're the one who is obviously unfit to be a
parent," she says. Until he can get his disease under control, she doesn't
want him being a father. She orders him to check himself into rehab. He
gives in and offers to get help. Maggie and Will come back in so Lucas can
apologize to them. After he does, they tell him they've already found him a
place in rehab... but he'd have to leave Salem. Lucas sends everyone but

I'll see you around," he says. Wiping away some tears, she walks out. Lucas
gets dressed and Philip comes in to tell him about their mother's wedding.
"I never want to see that lying bitch as long as I live," Lucas says as Kate

tells him that Lucas forgave her. He's amazed. "Soon I'll be a free woman,"
she says. "Not for long," he adds, getting down on one knee. He's been
waiting for her his whole life and can't move on without her. The doctor
pulls out a ring and tells her he wants to love her for the rest of his
life. That's what she wants too.

top distributer if they continue refusing to meet with her. She offers to be

rehab. Troy mumbles about donuts and runs. Ari comes back and Brady points
out that she was coming on to Troy. She snipes at him about Nicole. They
bicker and he insists that he isn't jealous. She blurts out that she knows
about his secret with Nicole. "I found out Nicole had a miscarriage," she

to ruin more lives than you can imagine," he says. After he leaves to find
Nicole, he tries calling her phone. EJ picks up the phone. The static is so
