That's A Bad Idea.
and Stefano are at the hospital bickering about Madeline and whether things
are under control. He demands to be informed of things immediately in the
future. Meanwhile, on the pier, Madeline and Chad argue. When he storms off,
she rushes after him. He pulls his arm away and she tumbles down three
stairs to her doom. After he calls an ambulance, she tells him she lied for
him. The ambulance comes and they rush Madeline into the OR. Chad sits down
to quake in a chair. Stefano and Kate walk by and spot him. Charles arrives
and Chad explains that he was fighting with his mom when she fell. "What the
hell were you fighting about?" Charles demands. Chad won't explain. Lexi
comes out and informs them that Maddie didn't survive.
Philip goes home and makes out with his wife in the kitchen. She tells him
she's throwing Chloe a baby shower. "That's a bad idea," he says, claiming
it's too soon. Mel realizes she left one of Maggie's spoons on the beach and
leaves to get it.
and Chloe are on their couch discussing baby names. She thinks about having
sex on the floor with Philip and sighs. He thinks she's upset because he
wants to name the baby Ichabod and assures her everything will be fine. She
worries about how Victor will react when he finds out she's having a baby
with his son. "Uh, godson," Daniel corrects her. He tells her how much it
bothers him that Victor is mean to her and then leaves to get their dinner.
Once the doctor is gone, Philip jogs in. She tells him that Viv was behind
everything. "I am going to break that bitch's neck!" he says. Chloe forbids
it and says there is still a chance that everything could work out. She
admits that she told Father Matt about their indiscretion but assures him he
can't say anything. They're glad they are still friends.
and Steph get out of the water at the beach, admire each other's bodies and
then he hands her a gift in a little pink box. It's a bracelet. They make
out. When she climbs on top of him, Mel walks by and gasps. Steph accuses
her of stalking them. Mel tells them to get a room and Nate tells her to
back off. They have another swim and then she informs her that her roommate
is moving out. He suggests that she let him move in. Meanwhile, Mel goes
home. Philip comes through the door. She kisses him and tells him she's
lucky to have him. They go up to bed. She suddenly realizes that they can
have a baby by having sex and he could be an amazing dad.
Daniel gets to the pub, he runs into Father Matt and starts winking. Daniel
asks him again if he'll perform the ceremony. The priest tells him there was
no problem with the annulment. Daniel's confused so the priest suggests that
he speak to his fiancee. Daniel goes home and tells Chloe about his
conversation with Father Matt. She claims that she and the priest aren't
getting along anymore and she changed her mind about him performing the
ceremony. "You canceled the wedding plans and you didn't tell me?" he asks,
demanding to know what her issues are.
drops by Casa da Bo and Beauregard explains all of Hope's strange behavior.
Roman hasn't noticed it and tells him to back off. Once Roman leaves, Bo
runs off. He drops by the mansion and chats with Ciara about her 'stories'.
She insists that the stories are real and tells him that her mom was hugging
a man, maybe the man who swiped her treasure. He sends her off to bed and
Henderson comes in to say that Hope isn't in the house.
the gambling den, Hope admits to Baker that she's going to knock off Bo
tonight. They look at her bag of Bo-killing material and he says this isn't
right. "Time for Bo to die," she sings. He stops her from leaving and starts
talking about his feelings for her. After admitting that he's falling for
her, he begs her not to go through with her plan and offers one of his own.
He suggests that they knock Bo out and clean out his accounts, then leave
town. She's touched that he wants to make her happy. She agrees to think it
over but still demands that he get her stuff together. He leaves and she
tells herself that no one will talk her out of this. She heads to Bo's and
cries that she has nothing to look forward to but destruction and death. As
she's about to leave, she runs into Bo in the doorway.

I Wonder Why...
is startled to walk into his place and find Hope there. She claims that
Ciara asked her to stop by and get a video game. He hands it to her. "Hang
in there Beauregard," she says, giving him a kiss. He's bewildered and asks
her what she did with Hope. She seems different to him. Hope says she's
undercover. Beauregard is sure something weird is going on and he worries
about her. She gets snarky and tells him to stop listening to 'the gossip
fairies' about her. He's frustrated and demands to know what is going on.
She becomes distraught and tells him how painful it is to watch Carly sashay
around the place she used to call home. He says that she is part of his
family and he still loves her. She's moved by this and tells him they'll
always have a connection. He gets a call from Carly and that ruins the mood
a bit. Since Carly will be in surgery all night, Beauregard offers to chat
with Hope. When he drifts off to make coffee, she plays with her pills and
declares that her job will be finished soon... and so will Bo. He returns
and puts the coffee down before walking away to make a call. She drugs his
Daniel's, the doctor is demanding to know what the hell is going on with his
fiancee. Chloe claims she just changed her mind about what kind of ceremony
she wants. He doesn't buy it so she says Father Matt think she's a nasty
piece of work. He's not buying this and offers to talk things over with the
priest. She kind of talks him out of that and apologizes for making
everything 'confused'. They have sex to get less confused and then he
suggests they talk to one of the other priests in town. She suggests they
wait a month or so but he's eager to get married right away. "Absolutely
not," she says. He flips out and starts to accuse her of not wanting to
marry him at all. She wishes she could explain but she can't.
the hospital, Lexi breaks the news to Chad and his dad that Maddie didn't
survive her injuries. Charles storms across the room. "You son of a bitch!
You killed her," he tells his son. As he rants at Lexi, Stefano stalks over
to defend his daughter until Kate backs him off. Charles rails at his son
for being selfish and a killer. Chad tells his father he loves him and needs
him to understand. "Stay away from me," Charles says, walking away. Chad
follows him and begs him not to cut him out. Lexi explains that Madeline was
on medication for a very serious condition and the fall didn't kill her on
its own. Madeline died of a ruptured brain aneurysm. Charles doesn't want to
listen to this and trudges off. Stefano walks over to Chad to tell him that
his mother loved him and was a good woman. That doesn't make Chad feel
better and he walks away. Kate later approaches the young man and tells him
he should be with his father. Chad's starting to blame himself for what
happened. He's sure his father will always blame him... not that he's ever
acted like a father. "I wonder why..." Kate mumbles to herself.
stops in at the pub to see Steph. He thinks they need to have a serious talk
about moving in together. She thinks he's backing out but he just wants to
make sure this is what she wants. Steph says it is. They make out. He
wanders off as Adrienne walks in. Steph happily tells her the news about her
new living arrangement.
gets out of his bed and goes downstairs. Mel feeds him chocolate and talks
about Chloe before babbling about how important honesty is. They make out
and she offers to tend to his needs. He picks her up and they go upstairs.
After they have sex, she goes back downstairs in only a shirt and Nate walks
in, startling her. He's returning Maggie's bowl and spoon. Philip comes down
and asks his wife back to bed. She bids Nate good night and he putters off.

Maybe I'm About To Get Stupid!
walks into the station and runs into Rafe. She's just bringing him his mail.
They discuss the nuances of forwarding mail and he wonders why she came in
person. She informs him that her mom is selling the townhouse so she will be
living with EJ permanently. Rafe gets sarcastic. Sami defends EJ's fathering
skills and says he's very loving. "Loving to the kids or to you?" Rafe asks.
She has a hard time admitting that Elvis loves her. She's decided to give
him another chance and then loudly defends her decision. Rafe continues
being sarcastic and says he's happy for her and EJ. Sami insists that she's
just looking out for her kids. He doubts her kids will be happy if she's
not. Sami says her life will be easier with lots of servants but he thinks
her life will be hell. The secretary interrupts to drop off a file and flirt
with Rafe. Once she's gone, Rafe notices Sami staring. She moans about the
secretary and then talks about her future with EJ. Rafe asks if she loves
him. She evades the question and tells him to respect her decision.
drops by Casa DiMera to fire EJ. He's shocked and asks for a severance
check. She explains that she feels like a burden to him and worries because
he's leaving town. He's changed his mind about going away. Ari keeps
panicking and doesn't want to be a distraction from his other issues. He
says she will be his top issue. When she asks him how he will get the dirt
on Nicole framing her, he starts to mutter. Johnny runs in and leaps into
his father's arms. Ari decides to make her exit and agrees to officially

has feelings for Ari. He tells her his head is all over the place and he
can't consider another romantic entanglement. She burbles and tries to
leave. He stops her to explain his emotions. Nicole wonders if he will ever
get over Ari. Brady states that he'll never get back with her. They talk
about their kiss and he says he's still going to do all he can to get Ari
free. She advises him to back off of the case, claiming that she can put her
terrible past behind her if she has a future with him. He says they will
always be friends and they need to take things one step at a time. She
leaves and runs into Elvis down by the water. After he blinks maniacally at
her, she tells him she will be blackmailing him until the end of time. They
hurl threats around. She didn't think he could get stupid like this. "Maybe
I'm about to get stupid!" he screams. She orders him to prove Ari innocent
fast. As they argue, Rafe lurks around the corner.
Casa da Bo, Hope drugs her ex's coffee. He returns and she places the
drugged mug in his hands. Her eyebrows arch as she watches him nearly drink.
He puts the mug down and says she's not being honest about why she's there.
She admits that she only came there to talk to him. He gulps his coffee and
offers to listen. Hope stares so hard he gets uncomfortable. She wishes he'd
fought harder for them. Bo claims he fought as hard as he could. That's not
very convincing to her. She's infuriated that he won't take responsibility.
Things get ugly and he claims Carly didn't replace her. He asks if it would
change things if he broke with the other woman and had her back. She stares
and then takes away his coffee and begins panting. "Your coffee was getting
cold... but it's empty," she says. Her eyebrows twitch as he explains that
Carly isn't responsible for any of this. "It's all you. It's you," she
accuses. Bo suddenly starts heaving and gets dizzy. Hope tells Beauregard he
gets all the blame and she's taking her revenge. He collapses. She takes her
bag and goes to meet Dick. Baker got the rest of the stuff for her. She
pulls out the gas can and smiles. Baker thinks this is evil but she's
determined to obliterate Casa da Bo. Dick worries when she tells him she
drugged Bo and left him inside. He refuses to let her murder Beauregard...
or help her do it anyway. She sneers that she can do it on her own and
leaves. Hope heads back to the house, douses it in gasoline and then lights

If I Had Half A
bumps into Carly at the hospital. The doctor assures her she won't tell
Daniel anything about her getting a paternity test. The diva tells her the
latest complications and lies. They go over the blame game and Carly
promises again to forget all about this if the test proves Daniel is the
dad. Chloe worries that everything has gotten out of hand and she might not
have a future with Daniel regardless. Maxine comes by and takes Carly away,
leaving Chloe to talk to herself about what to do. She meets Father Matt at
the pier. He's not that thrilled to talk to her since she's been
manipulating him. She tells him she's pregnant and needs him to keep her
confidence. The priest listens as she tells him she couldn't survive without
Daniel. He thinks she has to come clean before she gets in deeper.
douses Casa da Bo in gasoline and then whips out her matches. "Finally I'll
be at peace," she declares. The match goes out as she stares at a photo of
Ciara. Daniel shows up. He tries knocking but the door is open. When he goes
in, he finds Bo on the floor and smells gasoline. Hope has slipped into the
kitchen and drawn her gun. She peers through the door and points it at
Daniel as he attempts to revive Bo. Before she can squeeze off a shot,
sirens start to ring out. Roman and the EMT arrive. An anonymous man tipped
the cops off. Bo is loaded up and taken off. At the hospital, Daniel orders
a tox screen. Carly runs in and starts to flip out. After they get some
results back, he tells her that someone did this to Bo. Carly keeps flipping
out so Daniel orders her out.
the pier, Nicole offers to keep the tape a secret if EJ gets Ari free before
Brady digs anymore. As they agree to this deal, Rafe looms in the bushes and
eavesdrops. After they walk off, Rafe is amazed that everything he's been
looking for just fell into his lap when he stopped looking. "If I had half a
brain in my head I'd forget what I just heard," he grumbles.
shows up at Casa DiMera. Sami answers the door and he asks her if they have
another chance. She claims she would walk away from EJ in a heartbeat. He
kisses her. She wakes up. It was just a stupid dream. She talks to herself
until the doorbell rings. It's Rafe (for real). He tells her that he just
saw EJ and Nicole discussing their 'secret truth'. She refuses to believe
that so he accuses her of believing in EJ even when she shouldn't. The
bickering continues until he leaves. EJ returns and tells her about Ari's
case when she asks what he was up to. He rambles about running into Nicole.
Sami is sure she's up to something. He claims Nicole is just bored because
her life isn't glamorous, after all, 'this is Salem, not Baghdad'. Sami
decides to trust him and then informs him that her mom is selling the
townhouse and she was hoping she could live with him. He smiles broadly.
tracks down Dick in his gambling den to tell him that they are off the hook
for setting up Ari. She'd love to ruin EJ's life but is going to have to
settle for seeing Sami be miserable with a 'world class bottom feeder'. They
decide that this is the end of their relationship and part ways. He worries
about Hope. She shows up and confronts him for tipping off the cops to save
Bo. "Someone had to save you from yourself Duchess," he says. He didn't want
to see her destroy her life. She rambles and screams, accusing him of
destroying her plan. He wants to help her but she refuses and leaves to
finish what she started. She goes to the hospital just as Daniel stabilizes
Bo. Hope listens to Carly and Daniel and then slips into Bo's room when they

Don't Get Sad, Get Even.
tries turning the lights out in her hovel to see if it looks any better in
the dark. It doesn't. She moans about how much her life sucks. Rafe calls
her using a voice scrambler and asks her to meet him at the pier for a
story. As soon as she bustles off, Rafe slips into her room and starts to
search. He soon discovers a notebook but it's all written in code. He takes
some photos of it. Meanwhile, Nicole gets to the pier but no one is there.
She guesses she was set up.
Casa DiMera, Sami tells EJ she's learned to trust him, much to her surprise.
They rummage through their past and he talks about the terrible things he
did and asks for her forgiveness. He remembers telling her that their baby
was dead and then says he's been conning her ever since they met... but he
fell in love with her the moment he saw her. Syd starts to cry so he goes up
to see her and gets her back to sleep. Nicole calls him to accuse him of
sending her off on a wild goose chase. After she hangs up, he moans to Sami
about Nicole annoying him. When she probes, he tells her that he will deal
with Nicole. "She's jealous of us," he says. Sami agrees and they discuss
how unforgivable Nicole is. She goes up to see Syd. When she returns, he
tells her that he's arranged for a family portrait and even got her
something to wear. She invites him to be in it. He's excited and kisses her
goodnight. Across town, Nicole returns to her room and realizes someone was
the hospital, Roman and Abe try to keep Carly calm and the situation
contained. She's nauseated to think about what happened to Bo. Daniel
decides to chat with her to get her mind on something else. She weeps and he
hugs her. The cops talk over the case and Abe assumes this is related to the
other muggings but Roman thinks it's strictly personal. They wonder if
Stefano could have done it, but realize that wouldn't make sense. Meanwhile,
Hope sneaks into Bo's hospital room and slips on her black gloves. She gives
him the kiss of death and then pulls out a syringe to inject an air bubble
into his IV. He snores and then wakes up. She hears Carly and Daniel
approaching so she runs out the back. The doctors come in. Bo grumbles
Hope's name and then flatlines. Daniel puts the pads on to revive him. He's
soon stabilized and regains consciousness. All the while, Hope heads back to
the mansion and tells a sleeping Ciara that she loves her. She tells her
about how Bo cost her Zach and never listened to her about anything. Carly
calls, but Hope doesn't answer, just assumes the cops must be after her.
Maggie sits in her kitchen fondling her tea pot when Victor calls and asks
if he can come over and show her his plans. She's excited to open his
spreadsheet. Before he can leave the mansion, Viv corners him and tries to
get him to drink with her. He claims he has a meeting but she knows where
he's really going. They bicker and she says that Maggie is exploiting him.
She hands him a business plan for the scholarship and announces she's taken
care of everything so he won't have to. He looks it over and says it's crap.
She's sick of them living like brother and sister. "I can make you happier
than that redheaded cow," she blurts out. He's offended and walks out. She
goes off to the pub and has a martini with Gus. He listens as she groans
about how awful Victor treats her. He tells her to remember who she is and
what she's capable of doing. She decides to go to Chicago and pick up
moussaka for Victor. Gus mourns the loss of the Vivian he used to know. She
feels like a nun and Maggie is getting on her nerves. "Don't get sad, get
even," Gus encourages. Meanwhile, Victor shows up at Maggie's and complains
about Viv before moving on to business. She actually wants to talk about
them. The redhead isn't sure they should be friends, let alone anything
else. He could care less what Viv thinks but Maggie insists on doing the
right thing. The hospital calls to tell him about Bo so they run off.
