It's So Not That Simple.

Ari is spouting off at Nicole when the justice of the peace announces there is a hurricane headed for Santo Domingo. "We're supposed to be getting married!" Ari objects. He tells her that won't be happening today. Brady runs out to book a flight off the island. Ari and Nicole bicker until the bride-to-be runs off to pack. Brady returns and tells Nicole he's sorry. She doesn't think there's anything for him to be sorry about. He advises her not to go back to Salem. Nicole has nowhere else to go. Brady explains that he's starting a new life and implies she's not going to be part of it. Fay runs in and urges her daughter to leave. Nicole moans about how Brady's heart belongs to her. Brady goes upstairs to get Ari. She promises that she won't let a hurricane or his crazy ex stop them from getting married. He runs into Fay as he goes downstairs. She asks him if he still has feelings for her daughter. He feels worry and concern for her. Ari comes by and ushers him away. Nicole pops up and her mom says she can see in his eyes that he loves her. Pretty soon, Nicky is sitting on the plane with Ari and Brady. "I'm never giving up on you," Nicole thinks.

Hope walks into the mansion and begins profusely apologizing to Justin for bringing his ex-wife to town. He rants at her for messing up his life. As he flounces off, Julie wanders in and asks her daughter what she did to peeve off Justin. After her daughter explains, Julie wonders how she could be so stupid. Hope feels like a fool and adds that she lied to Adrienne to get her there. Her mom thinks she's lame and says it's obvious that she's still smitten with Bo. "It's so not that simple," Hope says. Julie advises her to fix things and fight.

Steph runs into 'hot mama' Aunt Adrienne at the Java Cafe. She tells her niece what a catastrophe seeing Justin was. Justin wanders over to them. Steph runs. He apologizes to his ex about Hope bamboozling them. She says she's actually been missing Salem so he wonders why she didn't come back earlier. He gets called off to work and Steph returns. She and her aunt go over the collapse of her marriage. Hope wanders in. "This is so ironic," she says. Adrienne doesn't want to see her. Hope says she's been a fool and repeats that Justin still loves her. Adrienne accuses her of projecting and tells her to get lost. Hope keeps her there to argue for awhile. When Hope finally leaves, she runs into Justin by the pier. He doesn't want to listen to her 'victim routine' anymore. Hope insists that she's only been trying to help. He rants at her for humiliating him and storms off.

Daniel runs into Mel in an alley by the pub. They're cold so they go inside as Chloe circles the corner. She follows them in as they order pie. Chloe politely excuses herself. Mel babbles about how swell she must be if Daniel loves her. He gives her his mother's locket. She thanks him, cries and hugs him. They chat a little about his family and he points out that he's not her only family. Mel gets upset when he begins defending Carly. She still refuses to forgive her.

Philip shows up in Carly's office to have a talk with her. She rolls her eyes. He orders her to stay away from his wife. She refuses. "Then we've got a big problem," he says. She refuses to back off when it comes to protecting her child. After she storms out, he walks across the hospital and runs into Chloe. She's there for her therapy appointment. They talk about Carly and he wonders if she's going to be a problem for her. Chloe doubts it. He's sure Carly will use Daniel to get into Mel's life. She realizes he's right... but she will be Daniel's life and Carly will just be 'the slutty bitch' he had a one night stand with.

Carly arrives in the pub and walks in on Daniel and Mel. She tells her daughter all about the pain she's suffered and how her life has revolved around making things up to her. Mel says she's not about to forgive her. Carly vows never to leave this alone. Mel sneers at her and barks at her never to refer to herself as her mother again. Carly repeats what she just said. Mel yells that she only has one parent and tells Carly she doesn't exist. When she stomps out, Daniel runs after her, slips on some ice and cracks open his head.
