camps out at Philip's table in the Java Cafe. She's annoyed that he doesn't
want her help planning the wedding. He gets rude and reminds her that he
doesn't want her in his life at all. When she agrees to back off, he assumes
she's up to something. "I just want to have a relationship with the boy I
carried in my tummy," she claims. He guffaws and wonders why she wants to
show him support. She insists that he's the closest thing she has to a son
and she just wants him to be happy. Viv offers him a jewel that Victor once
gave her and asks him to pass it on to his bride. Philip's taken aback, but
thanks her, takes it and walks out.
the Kiriakis mansion, Victor mocks Brady for his ongoing support of Nicole.
"When are you going to learn? The woman is a whore," Victor says. Brady says
that people change if you give them a chance. "That woman has had more
chances than a roulette wheel," Victor barks. Brady repeats that people
change. Victor says that people get older but that's about it. His grandson
isn't going to take romantic advice from someone who has hooked up with
Vivian. Once Brady leaves, Vivian drops in and tells him that she's been
bonding with Philip 'like crazy'. She informs him that her men have dug up
more on Carly. He looks over the latest report and tells her how eager he is
to be rid of Carly. Vivian says that when Carly finally finds her daughter,
she'll find out what it's like to lose someone she loves.
Carly's room, she and Bo fly into a passion and begin making out. She pulls
away. He tells her that they shouldn't feel guilty. They tear off each
other's clothes as she sucks on his ears. Post coitum, he feels like they're
back on the boat.
tracks down Nathan and breaks the news of Mickey's death to him. They return
to Maggie's to comfort her and offer to help her in any way they can. Maggie
thanks them and sobs. They sit down and Maggie slowly explains how her
husband passed away. While Julie is comforting her, Nate goes into the
kitchen and calls his mother to tell her the news. He glumly looks down at
the note Mel left behind about eloping. Julie approaches him and they talk
about the loss. He wishes he could have been there when it happened. Julie
suggests he move back in with his aunt.
of the pub, Troy is on his phone berating his hit man about picking up a
silencer. Mel walks into the pub with her wedding dress. She notices that
Ari has been staring at the newspaper article about Brady helping Nicole.
They change the subject and talk about Mel's wedding plans. She doesn't have
anything borrowed so she thinks she'll stop by Maggie's on the way out of
town. Ari gives her a hug and tells her to be happy. Before Mel leaves, she
reminds Ari of how much Brady loves her and then runs out the door. Brady
saunters in and tells her he's done with Nicole. "Who are you kidding?" she
asks. He doesn't want to lose her and offers to prove that he is over
Nicole. She agrees to try again and hugs him. She wants to pretend that
everything is normal and there are no more threats.
at Maggie's, Doug and Julie are trying to get her to rest when Mel walks
through the front door. "Nice welcome! Who died?" Mel asks. Maggie runs off
in tears. After she's filled in, Mel finds Maggie in the kitchen to
apologize. Maggie and Mickey taught her that it is possible to love someone
for a long time. "You and Mickey are like the parents I always dreamed about
having," she says, hoping that she and Philip have half the happiness they
did. Maggie talks about how lucky she was and then tells Mel that she needs
to run along and be with the man who makes her eyes so bright. "Don't waste
time," Maggie advises. They hug as Nathan watches them from across the room.
Maggie returns to her other guests. Nathan can see that Mel's talk with
Maggie helped her so he thanks her. They're awkward. He tells her he'll miss
her. As she heads for the door, she drops something. When they reach down to
grab it, their hands meet. Meanwhile, Maggie checks her text messages. She
accidentally deletes the last one that Mickey sent her.

Worse Places Than Limbo.
and Carly's carnal bliss is interrupted when Hope calls. He's going to let
it go to voicemail but Carly tells him to answer. "It's a bad time," he
tells Hope as he answers. She breaks the news to him and breaks into tears.
"That's terrible... um... where's Maggie?" he asks. Hope asks for a favor:
She wants him to go with her to Mickey's office. Bo uncomfortably agrees,
gets off the phone and fills Carly in. He pulls on his clothes and she tells
him she'll be there if he needs her. "It was a lovely afternoon," she tells
him as he leaves. When he's gone, she takes out a photo of her daughter and
meets with her father at the pub. Crying, she tells Doug that she is trying
to be strong but she still hasn't filed divorce papers. He says that there
are worse places to stay than limbo. She worries. He reminds her that she
and Bo are still in love. "That's what makes it so complicated," she says.
He advises her to take her time and heads out. Hope wonders if she should
just go home. Bo comes in and they hug. As Hope tells Bo all about how
strong Maggie and Mickey were in spite of everything, a doctor walks up and
tells Bo that Carly is lucky that he's been there for her. Hope puts things
together and guesses that he was in bed with Carly when she called. "I'm
sorry," he says. He offers to drive her to Maggie's, but she turns him down
and walks out. A cop comes in with news about the kidnapping for Bo.
Maggie's Nathan pulls Mel into a kiss as she's about to leave. He pulls away
and asks himself what he's doing. She shakes her head and says he just

and asks why she wasn't pushing him away. Outside, Steph finds Philip about
to enter. She breaks the news of Mickey's death to him. They walk in as Nate
and Mel argue. The men go to see Maggie. Steph hands her her earrings so she
will have something 'borrowed' and then advises Mel to take Philip and leave
for the time being, assuring her that Maggie will have plenty of people to
look after her. When Philip returns, Mel tells him about Steph's advice. He
doesn't think they can run off to Vegas in this situation.

voice enough. EJ's busy trying to think. Anna worries that Sami must be

back soon and then departs. Anna tells the baby how lucky she is to have a

what's up. Julie calls and breaks the news to her. Sami sobs. She tells Rafe
the news. He hugs her. She bucks up and tells Rafe that the kidnapping has
changed her. When she finds out who did this to her, "I'm going to kill
him." He's glad that she's not keeping things bottled up, whether they are
good, bad or kinky. She gives him a kiss and then sends him out to track
down Will. As soon as he's gone, she begins grunting and cursing EJ. He
arrives a moment later. She rants at him about not returning her calls and
insists that they tell Rafe about the note. Then she worries about Will and
tells EJ that Mickey is dead. Elvis backs down and says that they can tell
Rafe tonight. He promises that she can trust him and then offers to bathe
Johnny, joking that he is going to put him through the washing machine. He
puts the boy to sleep. They return to the topic of Rafe and she decides that
they should keep their secret. "I really do trust you," she says.

talk and Will decides that he should at least try to be Mia's friend.

accidentally deleted the last message Mickey left for her. Lucas cradles her
as she breaks down. He promises her that he will get a friend of his to get

assures her that Mickey was happy when he died and he was lucky to have her.
Doug arrives and tells her that Mickey's office has closed down for the day
and they are making all of the arrangements. There's a knock at the door.
Mia answers it and finds Carly standing there. Mia tells her this isn't a
good time. Hope comes in and spots the other woman. "You whore! You sleep
with my husband and then you have the nerve to come here!" she says.

excuse herself. Hope thinks they should finish this now. "Is my life your
new hunting grounds?" Hope taunts. Carly gets sick of her taking the moral
high ground and reminds her that she's been pushing Bo away for months and
has never been 'the constant wife'. Hope thinks it's hilarious that she's
blaming her for this. They scream in each other's faces and kick up the
sarcasm. "I am sorry for your uncle, I am not sorry about Bo," Carly tells
her, saying she never meant to fall in love with Bo again. "You murdered
your husband and now you're in love with mine," Hope says. Mel has returned
to listen and jumps into the fray. Mel tells Carly to go. Hope sends Mel off

offers to try and clear things up with Hope. He starts doing damage control
about Carly's confessions. He thinks it would be better if the details of
their private life didn't come out. "Everyone knows," she tells him. Crying,
she begs him to leave. After she collapses in a chair, she pulls herself up
and goes outside to pace.
