Thank You, Carly.
the pub, Elvis and Sami continue to battle over who is to blame for their
daughter going missing. EJ sneers. Sami barks. "You should be ashamed.
Shacking up with him with your daughter missing. We both have to face
reality," EJ says. This challenge outrages her. She stands up for Rafe. EJ
trashes him. "To hell with you. To hell with Rafe!" he finally curses. She
thinks he's gone mad with grief... and just as they were starting to get
along again. "That was before Rafe. He is the reason your daughter is gone.
Think about that the next time he holds you," EJ bellows. They bicker some
more and she flits off. Later, she returns to the pub and Rafe joins her.
When she tells him about her little battle with EJ, he nearly explodes. She
calms him down for once and he promises once again to find Syd.
Elvis arrives at the chalet to see Anna and Syd. "She's supposed to be alone
but instead she's shacked up with a hack! I will not stand for her to be
happy with any other man," he rants as Anna cringes and Syd plays with her
kangaroo. EJ won't rest until Sami is left with nothing. After he thumps
away, Rafe calls Anna and tells her they need to talk. He asks her to meet
him at the station. As they are sorting out the details, Elvis returns. Anna
spots him and gulps. When she gets off the phone, she stutters an excuse. He
tells her that when she gets to the station, she better stick to the script.
"I really need to know what you are going to do. Are you going to kill
Sami?" Aunt Anna asks.
at the Kiriakis compound, newlywed Philip starts prodding Brady about when
he's going to tie the knot. Across the room, Ari is busy telling Mel how
worried everyone was when it looked like she was bailing on the ceremony.
Mel insists that she wasn't having any second thoughts; she just wanted
things to be perfect. The wedding photo session is about to start so she
goes looking for Steph. Viv intercepts her on the way to the door. "I have a
life changing gift I want to bestow on you," Viv declares. She has
information about her mother. Mel's startled. Vivian leads her upstairs so
they can talk alone.
Outside, Stephanie tells Nathan that she got his text. He's eager to leave
for their vacation. Before that happens, she tells him that she wants the
kind of love Philip and Melanie have. "I really want to find true love. I
think I can find that with you," she says. He claims that he feels the same
way. They head to Alpine Valley and slip into their room to make out. Before
things get too intense, she stops to ask him if he still has feelings for
Mel. He claims he doesn't. She remembers the note Mel wrote him. They start
making out but the mood is ruined when he receives a call telling him that
he left his car lights on. He runs off to take care of this. She looks
through her purse and then reads Mel's note to him again before crumpling it
into a ball.
Bo rushes into the cannery and discovers Hope lying
face down under some crates. "Fancy Face! Fancy Face!" he yelps. He yanks
her out and carries her off to the hospital. After she's checked over, a
doctor explains that she will be okay. He sits by her side and begs her to
wake up. Moments later, she does, and she wonders what happened. "Carly," he
starts to explain, asking her to stay calm. She begins convulsing so a
doctor runs in to stabilize her.
pops in at at the hospital to see Daniel. He called her over for a special
afternoon surprise and she came as soon as she was done with her morning
sickness. He takes her in for a sonogram. Her pants have been getting
tighter for awhile so she wonders how long she's really been pregnant. The
doctor comes in and they begin. As they start to look at the monitor, the
doctor soon becomes rather disturbed. "There is no easy way to say this. I
can't find evidence of a baby. I am so sorry," the doctor explains. Chloe is
flummoxed. Daniel stares at the monitor. He tries to explain that there is
no baby. Chloe can't believe it.
at the Kiriakis mansion, the guests continue to mill around. Will and Mia
get together. "So... what do you think of Valentine's Day... on the
cheesiness scale?" Will asks Mia. She doesn't think it's cheesy at all so he
decides he should give her a gift. He hands her a box. There's a necklace
inside. She smiles and has him put it on her. They show it off to Lucas. He
tries to force some enthusiasm until Philip pulls him away. "Your dad still
doesn't like me," she surmises. They sneak off. Across the room, Brady has
tracked down his date. "I never got Philip and Melanie as a couple, but
Philip seems happy. It makes me want to go down on one knee right now," he
tells Ari. She laughs, embarrassed.
Victor approaches Maggie. He's sure today must have
been hard for her, but he's glad she came. "We welcome Melanie with open
arms," he says. As he walks away, Carly storms in, desperate to find Mel.
Maggie says she went upstairs with Viv. As Carly runs up the stairs, Philip
starts asking this guests if they've seen his bride anywhere. Stefano gets a
business call and tells Kate he has to leave. Before he can, she tells him
that she's had a change of heart about Viv. She's afraid that if her son
found out he offed his other mommy, he would never forgive her. Stefano
promises that Viv is no longer on his radar.
and Mel are out on the balcony. Melanie is terrified of heights but Viv
prompts her to look over the edge to take in the view. "It's like being in
heaven. Look now because you'll never make it there," Vivian says. She
explains that she has a long history with her mother. Mel is anxious to hear
more but Viv keeps pulls her to the edge of the balcony. Carly suddenly
rushes in yelling. She points a gun at Viv and orders her to back off. As
Viv stumbles, Carly shoots and hit Melanie. She freaks out and runs to her
bleeding daughter. Vivian soaks it in, "Thank you, Carly. You've done my
work for me," Viv snickers. Philip rushes up to them. "I shot my own
daughter!" Carly moans. The rest of the guests start rushing up. Philip
screams at Carly to get away from his bride. Lexi rushes over to try and

the roof of the Kiriakis compound, Carly is dragged off of Mel while Philip
yells at her. Vivian reminds everyone that Carly just said she was Mel's
mother. Carly wails and screams. The EMT arrive and take Mel away. The cops
cart away Carly. Victor corners Viv. He confronts her about her murder
attempt and disobeying him. He warns her that things will go very badly for
her if Mel dies... but if she lives, things could turn out very well indeed.
He advises her to pray for Mel so that Carly will go to jail. They go back
downstairs. Kate is eager to get over to the hospital. Lucas gets in their
way to ask about the situation. After Viv and Victor depart, Kate wonders
why Vivian is jumping out of her skin. "If she hurt Philip, she's going to
pay," Kate says. Lucas groans.
the chalet, Elvis tells Anna that he's not going to kill Sami. He orders her
to go and see Rafe and stick to the script they've discussed. EJ tells her
to get him the clothes Syd was wearing when she took the baby. He takes the
clothes down to the pier and dumps them in the water. They're all stained
with blood from a nosebleed Syd had. He calls Sami and asks her to meet up.
the pub, Sami complains to Rafe that none of the interviews he plans to
conduct will help. She's frustrated so he asks her to sit in his lap. He
tells her he'll always love her and they will get Syd back. He goes over to
the station. Anna is waiting for him. They sit down to talk. She's nervous
when he begins recording it. Anna rambles and agrees to answer any of his
questions. He gets a call and then tells her she's free to go before running
out the door. Anna goes back to the chalet and plays peekaboo with Sydney.
arrives at Casa DiMera. EJ shows her the new picture of Syd he just had
framed. "Sorry, I didn't mean to upset you," he says, offering to give her
the picture. She's confused. He apologizes for judging her lifestyle
choices. They begin bickering about her lifestyle choices. She continues
defending Rafe's role in her life. They argue some more. Rafe shows up. He's
dour and informs them that they've just fished out some of Syd's bloody
clothes from the river. Sami cries and wonders how someone could do this to
Syd. EJ tells her that the evidence isn't conclusive until they hear from
the hospital, Daniel explains to Chloe how she could have had a positive
result on her pregnancy test without being pregnant. She rants and rambles
until he finally makes her stop. "Your body is mimicking pregnancy," he
explains. She wanted it so badly that she convinced her body it was true.
Chloe cries. He reminds her that they have other options. Dr. White sticks
her head in to tell him there is an emergency. He rushes off. Chloe stares
at the blank monitor and weeps.
Lexi and the others arrive at the hospital. Maxine is
shocked to see them wheel Mel in. Daniel comes out and is shocked too. Lexi
tells him that Carly shot her. They rush Mel into surgery. Philip asks Carly
if Mel is really her daughter. She confirms it and insists that she was only
trying to save Mel. "If she dies, trust me, I will save you the same way,"
he threatens. Chloe drifts in, confused by everything. Philip rants about
Carly. Chloe gives him a hug and then leaves with Ari to get some take-out.
Maggie tells Philip that Carly would never hurt Mel. Abe advises Carly to
call a lawyer. Chloe and Ari go to the pub. Chloe tears up and twists around
before explaining that she isn't pregnant after all. "Sorry baby," Ari says.
Chloe says she'll never be able to give Daniel a baby.
Back at the hospital, Bo is in Hope's room. Maxine
comes in and tells him that Mel was just brought in. He's confused. "Who
would want to kill that wonderful, spirited child?" Maxine wonders. Bo
wanders out to the waiting room and begins questioning Carly. She doesn't
much. Instead, she starts screaming death threats at Viv. As Bo promises her
that Viv will pay, Victor pops up to explain that it was actually Carly who
shot Melanie. Justin goes in to see Hope. "I love you Bo," she mumbles. Down
in the operating room, Melanie flatlines.
Over at the ski lodge, Nathan accidentally knocks over
Steph's purse. She returns and grabs her stuff away from him before he can
find Mel's note. He stares at her cleavage. She admits that she's nervous
that they're about to have sex. They get naked and play mattress tag.

At Casa DiMera, EJ tells Sami to keep up
hope. She asks Rafe how long it will take forensics to confirm things. He
makes a call. Sami cries; she can’t even talk about what’s happening. Elvis
attempts to reassure her and accuses Rafe of upsetting them pointlessly.
Sami tries to be optimistic. She weeps into Elvis’ shirt. He suppresses a
smirk. Rafe returns with no news. Sami asks EJ to tell her some Syd stories.
Rafe suddenly gets a call saying that the results are in. DNA tests confirm
that it’s Syd’s blood on the clothes. Sami sits down and cries. “So sorry,”
Rafe offers. He promises to find out who is responsible for this. She
doesn’t care about that; she just wants her back. As Sami sobs, EJ
fantasizes about Syd’s new life. Sami’s tears shake him out of it. They
rehash everything that’s gone wrong. Sami starts blaming Rafe for this.
At the chalet, Anna is packing Syd’s clothes for her new life. Elvis arrives
and tells them that he finally has things set up and is ready to give his
children a stable life. Anna’s not happy when he explains that he’s let
everyone think that Syd is dead. He says that’s fair considering what Sami
did to him. He’s sure that she could never give his children a good life. “I
have a new life with them. We’re going to disappear,” he says. Meanwhile,
Sami goes to meet Rafe at the pub. She went to check on her family but they
were all asleep or busy. When he walks off to make calls, she calls Lucas
over. When he arrives, she worries about how she will tell Allie, again,
that she’s lost her sister. He promises to be there for her. She cries on
his shoulder and stares at Rafe. “I can’t stay here. Not with him,” she
says, running off.
At the hospital, Vivian is declaring that Carly should be arrested for
shooting Mel. Bo tells her to shut up. “Just because you’re sleeping with
her…” Viv starts. Abe tells Bo that he better arrest Carly now before they
have to find someone else to do it. Carly asks Bo to let her into the OR so
she can help. Philip forbids it. Lexi comes out of the operating room and
explains that they are doing all they can. Carly offers to donate blood.
Philip grouchily allows it. As Bo leads Carly away, Viv begins offering
Philip profuse apologies. Kate storms in and begins accusing Viv of trying
to kill Mel. Philip orders his two moms to shut up. Viv turns to Victor. He
worries about his son and warns her that she’ll be in trouble if Philip
loses his bride. Kate tells her son that her heart is breaking for him and
she is praying for Mel.
Daniel and Lexi are in the operating theater fiddling with Mel’s guts. Once
she’s stabilized for a transfusion, Lexi breaks the news to Daniel that
Carly is Mel’s mom. He stares. Meanwhile, Bo takes Carly down the hall so
she can give blood. She explains that Vivian had her kidnapped so she could
force her to watch Melanie being killed. Bo says Viv won’t get away with
this. “She already has,” she points out. She explains that Victor switched
the combs and she took Hope’s gun. “I never should have come back to Salem,”
she whines. He tells her that it wasn’t a mistake, but she won’t listen.
When they return to the others, Victor says, “If she’s done bleeding
herself, please escort her out.” Bo defends her. Abe points out that he
should actually arrest her now. He then turns to Viv and says she’s being
taken in as well. Kate smirks. After Viv and Carly are taken away, Kate
begin laying into Victor for letting Viv back into their lives and hurting
their son. He thinks her concern for Melanie is rather disingenuous. She
accuses him of being responsible for all of this. Philip walks over and
interrogates his father about his involvement. Victor assures him he only
wants his happiness. They hug. Kate sneers. Daniel and Lexi come out and
tell Philip that he can go in and see Mel. When he goes in, he slips her
ring on and tells her that she is too feisty to let anyone take their love
away from them.
Bo questions Viv at the station. She’d rather remain silent. He confronts
her about her crimes and how poorly she’s covered her tracks. “Blah, blah,
blah, blah,” she says. He tells her to pray to whatever she worships that
Mel survives. He takes a call and then informs Viv that she is free to go.
Meanwhile, Carly paces in the interrogation room. Lawrence’s ghost shows up
to clap and taunt her. “Next time you want to protect the ones you love,
turn the gun on yourself,” he says. Bo comes in an interrupts her
hallucination. She hopes for the death sentence if Mel dies because she
could live with herself. He reminds her that everything she has done has
been for her daughter. Carly prays for her daughter.

Vivian's Already Won.
is in Hope's hospital room. She's grumbling to herself about Bo. When she wakes
up, she has a headache. He explains that Carly shot Melanie. She asks him about
the comb and explains that Viv was trying to kill Mel. Hope leaps up and gets
dressed as he talks about the wedding.
paces around his office yacking on the phone until Carly is led in. Bo asks to
be left alone with her. She cries about her 'baby'. He explains that Mel made it
through the night but she's still comatose. "What if she doesn't wake up?" Carly
says. Bo orders her to stop falling apart and promises that Vivian will pay for
this. "Vivian's already won," she says before complaining about what a drag
being locked up is. He leaves to check on something. She prays and rocks back
and forth. He returns and tells her she can go home. He posted her bail, even
though he doesn't have the money. Bo tells her not to jump bail and not to go
near her daughter. This causes instant argument. He offers to keep her posted
and returns to work. "I can't let you or anyone else keep me from my daughter,"
she mutters to herself, running off. Bo returns after she leaves. Hope pops in
and explains that she's the one person who can help Carly out of this mess. They
discuss Victor's role in this and he admits that he bailed Carly out. She's sure
this means he loves Carly. She'd thought that his saving her again would change
things for them, but now she's sure it's too late. Hope sobs and walks out.
sits by Mel's bedside. Daniel comes in and suggests the groom go and have a
shower. Philip is anxious for her to wake up. The doctor explains that they
don't understand a lot about comas but he knows that Mel needs to feel safe
right now. He calls Maggie in so she can spend some time with the newlyweds.
Maggie and Philip sit with Mel and talk about the honeymoon. When he leaves,
Maggie holds Mel's hands and tells her how much Philip loves her and begs her to
Ari and Brady wake up in her bed. "This is awful," she
says, realizing that she is happy while Mel is comatose. They worry. He tells
himself that Mel will be alright. Brady heads to the hospital and checks in with
Philip. He suggests that he go and change his clothes. Maggie walks out of Mel's
room and Brady offers to take the next shift. As he goes in, Maggie tells Philip
to take a shower. "How could Carly have done this?" he wonders. Maggie calls
Nathan and leaves him a voice message. Meanwhile, Brady sits with Mel and jokes
about how weird it is to be around her with her not opening her mouth. He loves
her; she's like a sister to him.
Daniel runs into Chloe in the waiting room. She senses
something is wrong. He tries to be optimistic about Mel but he can't deal in
false hope. She mopes about her imaginary pregnancy. He tells her she doesn't
have to go through this alone. "I think you need help," he says, claiming he
doesn't think she's crazy; she just needs help. His beeper keeps going off so he
hands her the therapist's card and runs off. "Well Daniel, looks like you have
it all worked out for me," she grumbles. She heads over to the pub and grumbles
to Ari that Daniel thinks she should see a therapist. "Maybe he's right," Ari
says. Chloe crumples up the shrink's card.
Carly tries sneaking into Mel's hospital room. Daniel stops
her. "Are you out of your mind?" he asks her, telling her to be a responsible
doctor rather than threatening her daughter's recovery. He orders her to leave.
She argues that she is what's best for Mel and she needs to be by her side. When
she starts crying, he gives in and lets her in for five minutes. He leaves the
women alone. Carly takes her daughter's hand and begs her to let her be the
mother she deserves. As Carly leaves, Mel coughs and wakes up. Carly runs back
to her and begins stroking her face. Meanwhile, Justin stops by the mansion to
see Philip. He fills him in on everything Hope said about Viv... and Victor.
Philip thanks him and asks him to go. Once Justin leaves, Philip calls Vivian
At the ski lodge, Nathan rolls around in bed with Mel...
but it's only a dream. Steph wakes him up. "Looks like you were having a good
dream. Hope it was about me," she says. He lies and says it was. They go
snowboarding and then return. He pinches her cheeks and pulls her into bed. She
notices he has a message. He chucks his phone away and makes out with her. After
they have sex, he decides he needs a shower. Once he climbs out of bed, she
yanks Mel's note from her purse. As she looks it over, Nathan returns and asks
what she has. "It's a letter from Melanie," she says. He doesn't want to talk
about Mel and orders her into the shower. She tears up the note.
