Sometimes I Do Things
That Aren't Warm And Fuzzy.
drops by the mausoleum and informs Viv that she's there to move her. The
forklift driver arrives to take her to the crematorium. Viv squeals and then
wakes up. It was a bad dream. "With Kate it might come true," she mumbles.
Inside the mansion, Victor and Kate toast and he asks her to keep her new
knowledge about Viv a secret from Brady. She agrees to stay quiet but
wonders what he has planned for Viv. He explains the poisoned paint and how
it will drive Vivian mad. She warns him to keep Philip and Mel away until
they take care of things.
drops by the prison to see Hope. She starts weeping and talking about how
terrible it must be to be in there. Hope sits down with her and tells her
about the dead inmate. They talk about Jennifer and Hope explains that
Victor came to visit her. The topic turns to Maggie and Victor and she
insists that she couldn't be seriously involved with him. Hope tells her
that love is the only thing that matters. She wishes that she had realized
that when she was with Bo. Hope returns to the infirmary and Lee gets her to
inventory all the aspirin. Once she's left alone, Hope breaks into the
records cabinet to dig around.
their place, Nate smiles and tells Steph that she gives them the happiest
days in his life. He drops on his knees and pops out a ring to propose. She
agrees and they make out. He asks her to think it over but she's been
thinking about it since their first date. They have sex in slow motion. The
world stops spinning and she tells him how she imagined he would propose.
She's impressed that it turned out to be honest and real instead of the bad
version of an Old Spice commercial.
and Philip wander into the hospital and bicker about the hospital board. EJ
thinks they're a lot alike but Philip claims marrying Mel has changed him
into a good person. "Out of the bad guy business?" EJ jokes. Philip accuses
him of having no feelings and Elvis warns him that this could all blow up in
his face. Later, EJ calls and asks someone to meet him. He's figured out how
to prove Sami tried to kill him.
the pub, Caroline tells Kayla to keep her mouth shut about the paternity
test. Kayla doesn't understand the concept. Caroline says that no one wants
Philip to be the father and they should leave this alone. This baffles Kayla
so her mom just explains that she's the one who changed the test. This makes
no sense to Kayla. Caroline explains that she felt bad for Steph because she
used to go on and on and on about Nate and it had to stop. After
accidentally eavesdropping on Steph and Ian, the desperation finally broke
her heart. She's a volunteer at the hospital and just had to log in to
change things. Kayla still refuses to accept that this is in character or
makes sense. They make faces at each other until Kayla accepts this
bewildering development. "Sometimes I do things that aren't warm and fuzzy,"
Caroline says, reminding her about lying about Bo's paternity. She just
regrets that the truth came out because the world doesn't need another
Kiriakis. Kayla accuses her of trying to get revenge on Victor but her mom
insists this is about Steph and forbids her saying anything to anyone. She
begs her to respect her and leave town. Kayla needs air and runs out.
by the pier, Bo tells Carly not to care about what his sister says because
she has a twisted version of reality. He sniffs her hair and she says that
he's the only thing that matters. Chloe shows up and tells them all about
her honeymoon and how nice it is to be back to Salem where she doesn't have
to do anything. She invites them over for dinner. Bo starts stuttering and
asks when they became friends. Carly explains it and he wanders off to take
a call. Chloe hates that her friend's loyalty is costing her so much. Carly
assures her that Mel will be fine without her. Bo returns and tells Chloe
about Ari's demise. Chloe rushes off and Bo questions Carly about the
friendship. "I don't buy it," he says. She makes him back off.
Maggie's, Mel tells her dad that she's blown everything. "Chloe's not a good
person and I will never be okay with her," she says. He asks her to try and
forgive his wife for his sake. The diva shows up to pay her condolences. Mel
lets her in. "Sometimes it's better to have family around when stuff goes
wrong," she says. Maggie crashes the party. She'd like to hear about the
honeymoon but has to pick up some pumpkins. Dan the man offers to help and
they head out. This leaves the two women alone. Mel has no idea why she's
choosing to protect her.

realizes she misunderstood something and explains that the job she's
offering her is actually Syd-related. When Kenzie says no, Nicole accuses

Nicole tries to barter her down but this only pisses the young woman off.
Nic chases her around and Kenzie demands a job at the station. The blonde
offers to do all that she can. As Kenzie does her impression of Caroline's
rant the other day, Sami happens by and asks for an explanation. Kenzie says
that Nicole was trying to bribe her to see Syd. Sami sends her away before
announcing that she will file a restraining order against Nicole. As Sami
threatens, Nicole thinks back to her discussion with Viv. She tells Sami
that she will stay away and just wants Syd to be happy. Sami agrees to back
down but warns that she'll throw her into prison if she makes trouble. After

attitude. She prompts her mom to tell them what she did. Caroline begs her
daughter not to do this. Bo is confused. Steph and Nate walk in to announce
their engagement. Everyone is thrilled. Kayla looks like she wants to puke.

fit but Victor can't be bothered with this. His son guesses this is about
something else. Victor runs off. Philip searches for him but runs into
Henderson, who informs him that Victor has been spending a lot of time down
in the family crypt. Out in the mausoleum, Viv worries that she's losing her
marbles. She tries to breathe less so that the poison won't seep into her as
fast. Suddenly she's covered with worms and starts screaming. Victor shows
up and snaps her out of it. As he taunts her, Philip pops up and says that
the renovations are done. He wonders what's really going on. Victor explains

him back. Turning around, he spots EJ and thanks him for calling him about
Ari. "I did it for her," EJ says before asking if the dead woman said
anything mysterious before she died. Brady guesses he called him so that he
could get a deathbed hint out of her. EJ admits it and says he wants the
evidence she had. Elvis tells him that Sami shot him and they need to
respect Ari's final wishes by proving it. He explains that Sami sent Will
after Ari and she ran from him into traffic. Brady refuses to believe that

find the proof against her fast. They begin bickering and Stefano offers to

He hates that he can't protect her in there but promises not to let her down
again. They discuss Ciara's reading habits and then she uses code to tell
him to dig into what's been going on. Meanwhile, Lee and the warden worry
about what Hope could be saying to Bo. "Hope Brady is going to have to go,"
the warden decides. She makes calls to get Hope moved but it only makes her
bosses suspicious so she backs off. Later, Hope comes in and Lee tells her

Victor Is My Bitch.
the mansion, Victor fumes on the phone about all the traffic that's been
coming to the mausoleum. Nicole comes in and he grouchily offers her a drink
and moans about Viv. Kate wanders in and declares that she knows all about
it now. She sits by the fire and goads Nicole about how Brady is now in love
with a ghost. "Victor is my bitch," she says with a smirk. She thinks they
should all enjoy watching Viv go mad. "When Vivian does go mad, how can we
tell?" he wonders. Kate keeps taunting them and drinking all of his good
booze. Brady is out in the mausoleum talking to Viv when Philip wanders in
and wonders why people keep visiting the place. Viv begins mumbling 'save
me'. Philip asks him why he's asking someone who isn't there if they are
still alive. Brady's touchy. Philip backs off and starts paying his
condolences for Ari and then offers to call Maggie for him. Brady assures
him that he's not using again. His uncle notices that he has something in
his hand and wrestles the bluetooth away, hearing Viv's voice. "I'm in the
sarfomus, carposal, coffee, coffin," she explains, telling him that Brady
has been a bad boy. He finds this all rather strange and wags his finger at
the monitor. Brady refuses to let him free Viv and explains what she was
planning to do to Maggie. Viv begs Philip to help her but they head back to
the mansion instead. When Brady strolls in, Nicole tells him that Kate knows
everything. Victor begins bickering with her. Philip rears his head and
tells them all that he knows what's been happening. He was ready to save
Viv, but then he heard her talk and realized he couldn't do it. "She can
stay in that box and rot," he says. Nicole thinks that sounds like a toast.
As they drink, Viv continues hallucinating until the hatch opens. "Nice
going Vivian. You're going into the light," she says as someone pulls her
Casa DiMera, EJ explains to his father that he does still want Sami, but
he's more determined to get his children back. As his father badgers him
about wanting Sami in his bed, Elvis gets annoyed and says he doesn't want
to discuss his feelings. EJ calls his spies and gets the latest on what Rafe
has been up to. He expects the former Fed to lead him straight to the
evidence. Over at the Safe loft, Sami talks to her father on the phone about
the memorial they've planned. He agrees to come by and talk about how strong
Ari was. When she gets off the phone, Rafe mopes in. He tells her how hard
it is to accept his sister is gone. She encourages him to spend time with
his mom but he says her sister has got it covered. Sami's sure he wishes he
never met her because she's ruined his life but he insists that she's the
best thing that ever happened to him.
finds Mel at the pub. She's trying to write something about how much she
loved Ari but everything she tries sounds stupid. Maggie advises her just to
speak from the heart. They start to wonder why Victor is now against her and
Philip moving into the mansion. The guests for the memorial arrive. Caroline
cooks and Rafe hates talking about his sister in the past tense. Maggie
commiserates with Rafe. Roman arrives and hugs him, telling him how
incredible Ari was. EJ strolls in. Eyes roll. Rafe says that he can stay so
he can think about what he's done. Everyone stays calm and sits down so the
eulogies can begin. Mel talks about how Ari was her friend and she's never
had many of those because of all the stupid things she says. Then Roman
talks about how brave and gutsy she was. Caroline weeps and speaks of her
kindness. Gabi cries about how she will never stop missing her. EJ downs a
glass of wine and then stands up to say that none of them will ever stop
missing her. "Even after her death, she's still on my side," he says with a
smile. Rafe stands up and talks about how much he loved his sister and how
proud he was of her. As the ceremony ends, Maggie tells Mel that she did
well. Mel wonders where Philip and Brady were. Gabi thanks Mel. Will, Roman
and Caroline leave to get the kids. Sami sighs when she spots Elvis
strolling over. He asks for a word with Samanther but Rafe tells him to get
lost. "Once I find the proof Arianna had for me, it's over," he declares.
Sami accuses him of sputtering nonsense. EJ calls Rafe Sami's lapdog. Justin
arrives and calms them down. He explains that he was Ari's lawyer and she
left some things behind in a box.
