alright. Carly's impressed that Hope has so much integrity. She babbles. He
assures her that she's the woman he wants and needs. He and Hope have
outgrown each other. Bo thinks that Carly shouldn't throw away a chance to
stick around and prove to her daughter that she loves her. Hope walks up to
them and explains that Mel still won't change her story and is determined to
punish Carly. He's called off to the station. Hope tries to be optimistic
but Carly informs her that she will be pleading guilty. She's sure that her
going to prison will be best for everyone. She thinks Bo will go back to her
if she's gone. Hope tells her that's very 'noble', but she's being sarcastic

calls and asks her to meet him at the cottage and tells her to bring Elvis
along. She rushes off. EJ doesn't look excited to go. They hurry over. Rafe
explains that the cottage must have been where Syd was kept. "You don't have
any evidence... do you?" EJ asks. He's agitated and accuses Rafe of bringing
them there just to torment them. The men bicker until the caretaker arrives.

Anna refuses. Nicole's sure she will come. After she hangs up, she gets a
visit from her mother. She tells Fay that she has hope again for the first
time in a long time. That sounds like bad news to Fay. She doesn't want her

his incompetence at growing facial fair. Bo tells him his life has become
very complicated lately. "I don't judge," Max says, although he doesn't

and then he gets called off to work. Philip walks over to Max and tells him

Cafe and she explains that she never gave him a letter that Mel had asks her
to give him. He stares and then demands to know exactly what was in the
letter. She claims she doesn't know and explains that she told Mel he
refused to read it. He explodes and tells her she can't pull his strings

The Only Baby Stealer In This
Room Is You.
is meeting with Nicole at the prison and playing stupid about why she's been
asked there. "You bitch, you stole my daughter!" Nicole blurts out. Anna
keeps trying to play ignorant but Nicole claims she's finally recognized her
voice. Anna breaks down and admits it, which leads to a tirade from the
convict. Eventually Anna has to cut her short and remind her, "Face it
honey, she was never your baby. The only baby stealer in this room is you."
When she attempts to walk out, Nicole threatens to call Roman. They bicker
about who he would believe and Nicole lays out all of the reasons Anna would
be involved in the kidnapping, like revenge and money. Anna explodes. "Yes.
I hate you, Nicole, and the whole DiMera family... and anyone who was
involved with Tony's death... but I have moved on. I have known true love
and didn't have to steal a baby to make a man love me," she claims. Nicole
throws it back in her face and continues accusing her of the kidnapping. She
threatens to call Carrie and check out Anna's story and then threatens to
call Roman and Rafe as well. Eventually Anna gives in once more. "I'm not
admitting anything but... what do you want?" she asks.

townhouse when Sami calls to tell him she's having a great time in the park
with the kids. Getting off the phone, he smirks at Syd and tells her, "This
is much better than the original plan. With me here, I'll be able to make
her fall in love with me and I'll break her heart and get to watch the whole
the court room, the judge prepares to pass his sentence when Melanie bursts
in and asks to be heard. Everyone stares as she explains why she should get
to speak. Justin objects, but Carly asks to let it go. He and Bo bicker with
her about it but she won't back down. Melanie goes up to speak. She regales
them with the story of her life as Carly's secret love child and her awkward
relationship with Carly. "Not once has she ever told me the truth and I
don't think she ever will," Mel says. Bo squirms and yelps. The judge and DA
Woods tell him to back off. Melanie continues to talk about her situation
and finally says that Carly didn't mean to shoot her; it was all an accident
and she couldn't admit that to herself before because she was too angry.
"She didn't try to hurt me. She's not guilty," Mel states. The judge clears
the room of everyone except for the two lawyers. In the corridor, Bo and
Carly get excited, expecting that things are about to go well. It turns out
they're right. The judge brings them back in and declares the shooting
accidental. Carly is placed on probation and the judge tells her she can go.

At the Java Cafe,
Chad hands Gabi her coffee and sugar sludge. Mia strolls in to interrupt
their banter. He and the blond one share a longing glance and think of their
lip lock. Gabi snaps him out of his fantasy as Will joins Mia at a table.
She plays with the necklace he gave her and they talk about being
'exclusive'. She stares past him
at Chad. Gabi picks up the vibe and Mr. Peterson Woods senses it. "I don't
think it's fair to you for us to go out when I'm... you know," he
explicates. While Gabi is swallowing this, Kate calls Will to tell him she
just splurged on gifts for he and his sister. She's just looking for an
excuse to check in on Syd. Will arranges to meet her and hurries off. The
second he's gone, Mia drifts up to Chad. He informs her that he dumped Gabi
because their relationship was 'bogus'. Mia responds by claiming that her
relationship with Will isn't serious. They arrange a date but she tells him
it needs to be kept hush-hush. That idea bothers him but she doesn't want to
drop Will while his family life is such a mess.
Will arrives at the townhouse where EJ informs him that his mother is off at
the park with the twins. Elvis gets a business call and has to run off. It's
actually a ruse manufactured by Stefano, who arrives at the townhouse with
Kate soon after EJ has left. Kate unloads the gift bag on her grandson and
Stefano creeps in behind her. Will is not amused to see him. "Mom and EJ
don't want you around," he says. Stefano begs him to open his heart and let
him see his granddaughter. Will gives in and Stefano sits down for a yack
with Syd. Kate and her grandson leave them alone and head over to Java. He
worries that his mom will catch them and flip out. Kate assures him that
Stefano's spies will keep him safe. As they chat, EJ wanders by and spots
them. He jumps to a conclusion and hurries back to the townhouse where he
catches his father putting Syd in her crib. EJ launches into an instant
rant. "You have no rights with Sydney. None. None!" he wails.
Mia and Chad walk down to the docks and make out. They were going
to go to the movies but they suck face instead. While they tie tongues, her
necklace falls off. She decides that making out in public isn't wise if
they're trying to keep this a secret. "We could find someplace private," he
suggests. They arrange to meet up later and she goes back to work for her
paycheck. Gabi wanders by and asks Chad if he knows how to get in touch with
Kinsey. After he tells her and leaves , she sits down and finds the
necklace. As she calls Chad to tell him he dropped something, Will walks up
and sees her holding it. She explains that Chad had it.

Babes In The Big House.
returns to the Kiriakis compound in a chipper mood. She hands Henderson some
champagne. Victor catches her happy vibe and wonders if she's stuffed Carly
in the trunk of a car. "No need for that... Carly Manning's life has already
gone up in flames," Vivian says. She surprised to see the place is decorated
for a party. He explains that he's holding a fundraiser for the governor.
She gets excited but he tells her she's not on the guest list, for trying to
knock off his daughter-in-law among other reasons. He wants Philip and his
bride to move in but he doubts that will happen as long as Viv is around.
She won't take the hint and rushes off to pick out a party dress.
the courthouse, Carly continues trying to warm up to her daughter but Mel
wants her to back off. "Stay out
of my life," Melanie says, reminding her that she's already proven that
she's great at doing that. Carly's impressed when she hears that Mel made
this decision without consulting anyone. Melanie clarifies what this means
for her. "This was my way of cutting ties with you, just like you did when
you gave me away. I grew up with a psycho because of you," Mel moans. Carly
just wants to be part of her life. Mel refuses again. It doesn't end. They
run over it again until Mel starts to come apart at the seams. Philip
arrives, wondering why she never told him what she was planning. She's sure
he would have stopped her. He promises that he'll never let anyone hurt her
again. They head off to look at one of the houses he put a bid on. He leads
her there with her eyes closed. When she's allowed to open them, she
discovers they're at Maggie's. "I thought you were happy here and this could
be our new home together," he says before carrying her across the threshold.
They discuss Maggie's Myasthenia Gravis and he explains that they can help
her out and help keep it a secret. As they kiss, Maggie walks in. "I'm going
to have to learn to knock," she jokes. Philip runs off to make some calls
and Maggie wonders why they are moving in to take care of her. Mel wants to
repay her for all of the help she's given her. They talk about their recent
ups and downs. Mel brings up the latest round with her mother. Maggie points
out that Carly is part of her life whether she likes it or not. "Carly can
fall off the face of the earth for all I care," Mel says.
is chatting to Stefano on the phone outside of the pub. They talk about what
a pain EJ is. She spots her son inside and rushes in to see him. They talk
about Melanie and he gives her the latest news. After she arches her
eyebrows, she heads over to the Java Cafe and walks into Viv while she's
making an appointment for a manicure. Sneers are exchanged. Viv gloats about
the downfall of Carly until Kate can't bite her tongue anymore. "You haven't
heard, have you? She's free. They dropped the charges," she announces.
Vivian nearly dies at the news but it gets worse. Kate goes on to say that
Mel is the one who got her mother off. "I really hate to burst your bubble,
but I tell you what: I'll call Helga and take your manicure appointment
because I really need to keep my nails... well, I need them for
emergencies," Kate says.
Chloe goes to see
Daniel at the hospital. He informs her that his daughter has been released
and rushed off to the courthouse to clear Carly. Chloe's confused. He
explains that this was his suggestion. This confuses and upsets her more. He
worries that she's upset because she can't give him a kid. They argue about
her therapy. The diva claims she's feeling better. He hopes that they can
put all of their secrets behind them and move on. They snuggle a little and
he gets called off to work. Carly pops up and then immediately tries
avoiding Chloe. "We have to straighten some things out," Chloe says. She
thinks the doctor has put Daniel through the ringer and needs to back off
and give him some space. As they argue, Daniel returns and interrupts. He
asks Chloe to meet him at the Java Cafe. She twists and walks off leaving
him with Carly. She thanks him for talking Mel into defending her but he
insists that he only did that for their daughter. Carly tells him how
desperate she is to establish more of a connection with Mel. "I will protect
my daughter. I'm sorry but I can't help you," he flatly states.
continues her uncomfortable prison visit with Nicole. After Nicole hurls
more threats, Anna asks her what she's looking for. "Just a small, little
thing... I want you to get me out of here," Nicole says. Anna's flummoxed
and tells her this isn't a movie like "Babes In the Big House." Nicole wants
out legally and is sure that Anna can throw her weight around and get it
done. She reminds her that she used to date Governor Ford and suggests she
warm up the memories with him and get her a pardon. Anna tries to talk her
way out of this but it only makes Nicole more determined. She threatens to
call Stefano. "He hates you and loves to torment you. If I call the cops,
they'll make you my bitch. If I go to Sami and Rafe, same result. Stefano
doesn't have people arrested, so I prefer the option of you working your
magic on the Governor. You have twenty-four hours. Otherwise, let the games
begin," Nicole says. Anna stumbles out the door and immediately makes a call
to get on the guest list for the Governor's fundraiser. Later, she shows up
on Victor's doorstep. "Well, Little Orphan Annie DiMera.
What a surprise. And I distinctly remember telling Henderson to take the
trash all the way to the curb," he says.
Chloe runs into
Philip at the Java Cafe and they chat. She soon admits to him that her life
is a mess. "I won't tell Daniel I'm not seeing the shrink and and will keep
pretending. I don't know what else to do," she explains. Daniel just happens
to walk in when she says this. Philip decides he doesn't want to be in the
middle of this and runs off. The doctor walks up to the diva with flowers in
his hands but from the look on his face she can sense that something is
wrong. "Why have you been lying to me?" he asks. Meanwhile, Kate runs into
Carly at the pier and congratulates her on her freedom. Carly is still
grimacing about the whole situation. Kate warns her that she better watch
out for Vivian. She knows that she's free and will be on the warpath. After
she drifts away, Carly calls Bo to tell him that her daughter still hates
her guts. As soon as she hangs up, Vivian appears. "You didn't live up to
your part of the deal. What am I supposed to do about that?" Viv asks.

Dream On Cookie.
and Chloe are in the Java Cafe. She thinks he thinks she's impossible to
live with and doesn't see the point in talking about it. He's annoyed that
she seems to be more honest with Philip than she is with him. He concedes
that they probably have big problems and suggests that they go to therapy
sits in her cell doing her nails when Lois the guard comes by. Nicole
suggests she get some real shampoo after she pays her off. Nicole keeps
giving her attitude about getting out. "Dream on cookie," says Lois. Nicole
assures her that she has someone highly motivated on the outside who will
chat the governor up for her. Lois hands over her phone and gives her ten
minutes for two hundred dollars. Nicole takes the phone and wonders what she
will say. She tries calling Brady but hangs up when he answers. She kicks
herself. "You're not going to get him back with tears," she says. Lois
returns and informs her she has a visitor. It's Chloe. She tells her friend
that she doesn't know what to do about Daniel anymore. The diva talks about
Daniel pressuring her to go to therapy and rants about Carly. Nicole offers
her to find a way to fool Daniel so she can keep her relationship alive.

becomes faint and asks for water. He asks why she's really there. They
bicker until Governor Ford arrives. He spots Anna and instantly remembers
her. Victor suspects something is amiss. Ford suggests that Victor make
himself scarce. "Talk about strange bedfellows," Victor snarks as he leaves.
The governor and Anna catch up. When she brings up his wife, he tells her
that they have a flexible relationship. He guesses that she wants something.
She says her friend Nicole is in trouble and he assumes she wants a pardon.
He tells her hell will freeze over before he helps her with this. It would
be political suicide to cross the DiMeras. Anna turns on the tears and begs.
He thinks it's sweet she wants to help her demented friend. Anna weeps
loudly and tells her she'll be in big trouble if she doesn't get his help.
He can't stand to see women cry so he caves in. She offers to do anything to
prove how grateful she would be for his help. They lock lips.
home, Sami googles around while EJ talks about the kids. She explains that
she's applying for a job. Elvis is not pleased and tells her he wants to
take financial responsibility for the family. Brady arrives and he's not
thrilled to see EJ grinning in his face. After Elvis says he's living there
and tells her to pick up some juice boxes, he leaves. Brady wonders if she's
nuts. She explains that he's just staying until Stefano is gone. EJ returns
and tells Sami he'll look after the kids while she goes out with Brady.
After they depart, Lexi and Theo arrive. Theo runs off to see his cousins.
Lexi asks her brother what he's up to. They discuss his past with Sami. He
insists it was just an embarrassing sentimental slip. She's sure there's
more to it but he claims that he's only protecting his children from his
father. "Shouldn't you at least be honest with yourself?" she urges. Theo
runs out to say that Syd is awake. Lexi runs off to see her. Theo talks to
his nephew. "Johnny told me your secret... about Sydney. That she was never
gone. She was safe with you all along," Theo says.
drops by the station to see her brother as he's working. She yacks and then
tells him she's getting married and flashes her bling. "You can only imagine
how many hours he spent at the arcade before he won that," he jokes. They
hug and she says that they can all be happy. She drags him over to the pub.
Sami and Brady stroll in. Sami is shocked to see Rafe out of the office and
suggests he ease up a little. That's not going to happen. She sits and
mopes. They bicker about EJ until Ari and Brady interrupt. Sami explains
that she's looking for a job and plans to apply for a clerical job with the
FBI. Rafe smiles. Sami expects him to give her a reference. He doesn't think
that's a good idea.
the pier, Viv laughs at Carly as the doctor worries about Mel. Viv says
she's going to have to re-think things since Manning isn't being locked up
after all. They bicker. Carly threatens to smash her face in. She taunts Viv
and tells her she'll be 'done with' if she goes after Mel again. Viv groans.
Gus comes out of the shadows and Viv explains that they could kill her right
now. Carly gets sarcastic. Viv sneers at her spunk and tells her that the
sword of Vivian will be hanging over her head. Daniel lurches out of the
shadows and warns Viv to back off. He threatens to put her in a psych ward
so she threatens to put killing him on her to-do list. She bids them a nice
day and walks off. Carly's impressed by how fiercely he stood up for their
daughter. She doesn't want to be his problem though. He says that she will
always be part of his life since they share a daughter. When she wonders if
they are friends again, he says they just have a mutual enemy. Meanwhile,
Vivian calls Victor for a meeting. They meet at Java and she tells him that
Carly has been exonerated. That means that she will have to take care of
