This Is A Total Nightmare.

At Nicole's, Rafe gets the CD to play and he hears the whole lurid tale. Nicole pouts and Rafe smiles smugly since he finally got what he's been looking for. She tells him Sami isn't worth it because she would break his heart for a box of popcorn. He tells her this is all her fault. She worries that she could end up dead because of this and begs him to show he cares. He assures her that she will have FBI protection, but that doesn't impress her much so she walks out. Rafe chases her down and they go to the station. He says she's in his custody until they have ink on a deal for her. Agent Lou comes in and starts the paperwork. Rafe gets a message from Gabi and she tips him off about the wedding. He rushes out the door.

The wedding ceremony continues at Casa DiMera. The judge rushes through it and everyone watches uncomfortably. When they get near the end, a loud banging begins at the door. Will smirks. Since the staff are all busy, Kate walks off to answer the door. It's Roman and he's there to arrest someone: Sami. Everyone is shocked but he thinks this is the only way to stop his daughter from making the biggest mistake of her life. EJ gets his knickers in a twist and Will almost falls over laughing. The judge goes outside to admire the flowers and Sami tells her dad she doesn't need his protection because she's in love. When she begs him to let her be happy, he agrees to back off and apologizes. They go off to the foyer and she asks him to stick around. They discuss Rafe and she claims that he turned out not being who she thought he was. She insists that she loves EJ and will be happy with him. Meanwhile, Stefano admits to his son that he thought Roman was going to arrest him for the Sydnapping. Sami returns and announces that it's time to continue. They skip to the end and EJ talks about how great the family is and how the children taught him to love. He can't imagine living without all of that love. Sami says it has always been her dream to marry someone who loves her for who she is. She's sure he will be the best husband she could ever hope for. He agrees to honor her for all the days of his life. Rafe runs in before they can kiss and stops the wedding.

At Daniel's, the doctor and his daughter go off to get the cider while Philip barks at Chloe to keep it together. Their loved ones return and they all toast to the birthday girl. Daniel declares that everything will be better from this day forth and all of their dreams will come true. Philip suddenly declares that they have to go. He claims he has a business call and leads Mel out. Chloe and Daniel go to bed. She sleeps and he says he would do anything for her. Then he wanders down to the pier with his blackberry and urges himself to do something.

Carly paces at St. Anne's. The nun hands her the results of the test and then takes them back to explain that 'Miss Scott' didn't sign the right form so she can't hand it over. She offers to call Miss Scott but Carly says she can't be reached and claims that the form must have been misplaced. When the nun goes off to look for it, Mel calls and tells her mom about the birthday party. The nun returns with the form and Carly checks the results. Simultaneously, Philip makes a call, asking someone to pull something off for him and Mel logs into her computer and types away. "That's that," she says.

At Steph's, Ian hacks into the hospital computer and gets the results. "This is a total nightmare," she gasps as she sees them. She's sure that she will lose Nate to Mel now. Ian is baffled by all of this so she explains the entire convoluted situation. She runs to the pier in tears and he follows her. He attempts to give her a pep talk but she's pretty sure she is screwed. Unless... They go back to her place and she asks him to hack into the computer again and change the test results. He's reluctant, but she makes a pouty face so he agrees. When he gets in, he says he can't touch them because someone else already has.

August 24, 2010
Annoying Interlude.

At the hospital, nurse interrupts Nate while he putters around on his computer. He shuts it down and runs off. Meanwhile, at her place, Steph and Ian ponder who could have changed the test results. Since Chloe can barely spell her own name, she's not likely to be the computer genius behind this. He tells her the result is all that counts. Nate walks in and asks what's going on. Ian heads out, leaving the couple to argue about which of them is more on edge. She gets confused and thinks he's onto her, but he just thinks she's a bit slow with the new program at work and was getting tutored. They go to bed. After their romp, she tells him that things between them are 'too great' and she worries she will screw them up.

Mel is at home telling herself that what she just did was best for everyone. Philip shows up thanking God he just took care of things. Before he and Mel can slip off for some afternoon delight, he notices she was on the St. Mary's website. She says that they offered her a job but she doesn't want it. They begin talking about where they want to buy a house. His phone rings. Mel notices that it's Chloe sending him a text and she wonders what's up with that. He says that she has good news and wants to see them.

Carly show up at Chloe's to tell her the news: the baby is Daniel's. Chloe's thrilled and they hug. Daniel wanders to the door, telling himself that he just did the right thing. He goes in and asks why the other doctor is there. Carly gives Chloe a baby gift. The mother-to-be wants to buy a cradle and tell the town about her pregnancy. There are loads of hugs and Daniel tells his fiancee that he got them tickets to "Carmen." She thanks him and rushes off to call her parents. Daniel wonders why Carly has a sad look on her face. She claims that she's just been worrying about a patient and then begins sobbing and hugging him, hoping she didn't screw up his life. He says everything has worked out fine. Philip and Mel arrive and they all get a glass of sparkling cider so they can toast. Chloe thanks everyone, saying that her life is perfect and toasts to the baby.

Rafe crashes the wedding at Casa DiMera. Sami tells him she's moved on. EJ points at the door. Sami continues asking Rafe to leave. Roman stands up for Rafe and says that she should listen to the Fed. Stefano tries to threaten Rafe away. Sami gives in and agrees to talk to Agent Hernandez, but promises EJ that nothing he can say will change her mind. Elvis drinks a bottle of champagne and assures his father that he will be keeping the 'Brady Bunch' away from Sami once they're married. The family pace around and Will tells Kate he's used to his mom's drama. Lexie wonders if her brother is worried about this interruption but he claims he's not. Kate sits with the groom next and reminds him that it's not too late to call off the wedding. He refuses to walk away. "Don't say that I didn't warn you," she says. Meanwhile, Sami and Rage stand in the foyer and bicker. She admits she saw him ripping off Nicole's clothes and orders him to go. "This is about Sydney," he says. She begins ranting at him and he tells her that EJ doesn't deserves to be a father after what he's done. She orders him to leave. He begs her to listen to him. A moment later, she returns to the guests and asks everyone to leave... except for EJ. She wants to hear what Rafe has to say, but only with Elvis present. Stefano groans so he his son asks him to let him deal with this 'annoying interlude'. Grudgingly, Stefano and the family trudge off. Lexie gets called back to work.

Soft Sarcophagi.

At Casa DiMera, Sami simpers and asks Rafe if he is there to ruin her happy day. She's sick of this thing he has about EJ. Rafe declares that it is all over because he finally has proof. EJ drinks champagne and Sami cocks her head. Elvis suggests that Rafe has just manufactured evidence against him. "It was him. He ordered Anna to kidnap Sydney. Him," Rafe states. Sami groans. EJ gives him the talk to the hand sign and declares this is delusional. Rafe recounts the whole ordeal and Syd's return. Sami goes into denial. EJ stutters and threatens to throw Rafe out. Rafe whips out the recording and plays Nicole's confession. They listen. Sami furrows her brow. EJ tries to stop blinking wildly and Rafe looks on smugly. EJ rips the recording from his hand. Sami's not impressed so far, since it's just Nicole. When he tells her that he loves her and only wanted to prove what a sick bastard EJ is, she slaps him. Elvis smiles and asks Rafe to leave. Rafe continues to make his case and Elvis and Sami yell at him. She asks Rafe to leave but he has more to say and asks Sami if she'd believe what he claims if it came from EJ's own mouth. He whips out the CD and says it's time for EJ to pay. Elvis goes into a panic, but Sami tells Rafe to play it.

Roman and Bo are at the courthouse. They talk about Hope as Dr. Baker is led in. Bo is determined to make sure he pays.

Carly arrives and they sit Bo down. He mopes. The judge comes in and Baker's lawyer moves to have the charges dropped. The prosecutor objects but the judge isn't sympathetic to her.

Roman heads back to work and Carly goes off to check her messages. Bo tells Baker that he should have stayed dead and warns that he will pay for what he did to Hope.

At the pub, Victor is annoyed when Viv wants to look at sarcophagi for Isabella with him. He thinks this is all crazy. Maggie strolls in and he invites her to join them. They look at the coffin catalog together and Viv shows her her fave. "It's one of the softest looking sarcophaguses I've ever seen," Maggie says. Viv goes off to the Kiriakis tomb where Gus is waiting. They talk about her plan to bury Maggie alive so she can spend eternity with pillows that clash with her hair.

Nicole is at the mansion when bearded Brady walks in. She tells him she needs him and it's a matter of life and death. "EJ's going to kill me," she says. "If he hasn't killed you by now, I think you're safe," he says. She explains that she finally gave Rafe the proof he needs to put EJ away. She has to relate the whole sordid story about the Sydnapping and how she blackmailed Elvis. He lectures her for doing all of this to Sami and then tells her to call the cops if she wants help.

The judge declares that Baker has a constitutional right to be an idiot. Baker pleads guilty again. "I'm not the only one," he says as he looks at Bo.

"You did it. You did it," she says to EJ in tears. He tries to claim it's a fake but that doesn't work. EJ tells them the CD isn't admissible in court. Rafe rants at him and then walks out. She asks EJ to look her in the eye and confess. He does. Sami begins tearing into him. He knows that what he did was wrong, but he wanted her to suffer like she made him suffer.

At Casa DiMera, EJ tells Sami that she heard how much he hated what he'd done to her. He tells her that he couldn't leave with her children in the end and has been trying to make up for what he did ever since. That doesn't make things okay for her. He thinks that, of all people, she should understand what he did. She says that every word out of his mouth is a lie. "I love you and you still love me," he says. She claims love has nothing to do with this but he says it's all about love. He thinks that they've changed and can get through anything with a love like theirs. He gets down on his knee and begs her to marry him. She explains that she turned to Rafe last night to give him a last chance but saw him with Nicole.

He claims that the DiMeras will be going down for this. Sami, Rafe and the kids arrive. The kids run into the kitchen for cookies and Sami tells her dad that she feels like a fool. She worries about what EJ will do next and hugs her father. Roman tells Rafe he did a good job and then leaves him alone with Sami. She thanks him for saving her again and hugs him in tears.
