Out For Blood.
At the Safe loft, Sami cries when Rafe announces they
should get married tonight. She hopes this is a plan to solve all of her
problems. That's part of it, but a big part of it is that he loves her. He
warns her that Bo said he might have to arrest her. She huffs and puffs so
he tries to calm her down and claims the evidence against her isn't good
enough. Sami is sure it would take a miracle to get her out of this and she
doesn't deserve one. She's exhausted with all the damage control everyone
has to do but he won't let her go through this alone. Rafe loves her because
she makes his life less boring and asks her to marry him again. "Marrying
you is the wedding of my dreams," she coos. She doesn't know how she could
have gotten so lucky. Sobbing, she sends him off to get things ready so they
can have a wonderful night. She wakes up the children and announces that
she's getting married tonight. Johnny's happy but Will is concerned and
assumes there is more going on. His mom's not explaining. Meanwhile, Rafe
heads to the pub and asks Gabi to be his best man or person. Considering Ari
is barely cold and he's marrying Sami, she's not exactly in a wedding mood
and doesn't want to go. He says it would mean the world if she was there.
Later, Caroline drops by Sami's with something borrowed and something blue.
They head down to the park with the kids for a candle and fairy light

Seduced By A Coupon Cutting
wakes up on the floor of the mausoleum with Viv standing over him. She
taunts him and he tells her to shut up. She continues mocking him for being
'seduced by a coupon cutting suburban siren'. He'd rather die with Maggie
than live with her. Viv's about to stab him when Brady runs in and pulls her
away. They pop the sarcophagus. Maggie looks dead. Victor finds her pulse
and tells her he needs and loves her. Viv cries as Maggie's eyes open. He
tells her he loves her again and she passes out.
and Julie drop by the prison to visit Hope. She wonders if something is
wrong and asks if Bo has a
message. Julie starts to wonder what Bo has done now. They drill her but she
says she's fine. Julie accidentally mentions the holidays and Hope says
she's trying not to think about them. She thanks them for their visit. The
guard announces that she's leaving for a minute. Hope's perplexed so Doug
explains that he bribed the guard to leave alone so they could hug.
Meanwhile, the warden is kicking herself for assigning Hope to the
infirmary. Lee suggests they make her 'step out of line' so they'll have an
excuse to be rid of her. The warden leaves and Hope comes in. They talk
about how weird it is to be in there for the holidays. Lee gets defensive
when Hope asks about her family. Lee suggests that she stop being so nosy.
the pier, Nicole encourages EJ to let her into Syd's life for her sake.
Elvis dismisses her claims that she loves Syd and will be good for her. He
promises that he will do what he thinks is best for his daughter and strolls
off. Nicole follows him back to Casa DiMera. He orders her to go away. She
doesn't. They keep rehashing their past and it doesn't go well for her. She
throws his crimes back at him and tells him he's being mopey and stupid. He
thinks she's stupid to talk to him like this. She thinks he needs her to
help balance him as a parent. "No one is ever going to need you in their
life for balance," he says. When he orders her to get out, she accuses him
of being afraid to have her in his life. He accuses her of being delusional
but she keeps pushing. She says that he can't keep denying what she says or
he'll end up alone and sad. She gets him a drink and offers him a massage,
telling him that he will think about all she's said whether he wants to or
not. Marco calls and tips him off about the wedding. He drops the phone and
then smashes a glass. "Damn that woman!" he bellows.
Rafe, Caroline and the kids join the park for the wedding. Gabi and a
minister are there and fairy lights fill the trees. It's the middle of the
night but birds are singing. Sami begins crying uncontrollably as the
ceremony starts. They stand aside and she worries about how horrible
tomorrow will be. Rafe tells her they can get married any time but she
insists that they get married tonight. The ceremony starts again. He regales
the guests with tales of the safe house and how he fell for her. Then he
tells the kids how much he loves them and begins calling Sami 'blue eyes'.
When it's Sami's turn, she tells him he's 'alright or whatever'. He might
not be Harrison Ford but he's her hero. She loves him for his big heart and
how he wants to protect her and the kids. She vows to always be true to him
and thanks him for loving her. They join hands and exchange the final vows.
Narcissistic And Promiscuous.
the mausoleum. Maggie wavers back to consciousness so Victor can tell her
loves her. She passes out. He finds her pulse and Brady calls 911. The cops
and ambulance arrive in record time. Maggie is wheeled away on a gurney.
Brady tells Viv to pray that she survives. They head over to the station.
Brady gives his statement to a detective. Viv frets when she hears Brady
knocked out Gus. Brady explains the sarcophagus story and the cop finds this
all rather bizarre. When the cop leaves them alone, Brady begins warning Viv
about what she's facing but she throws it back in his face and vows to take
everyone down with her. He offers to take the blame but doesn't see why she
would destroy everyone else. "I want my sweet, sweet revenge," she says...
before offering him a deal. She wants him to have all charges against her
dropped. Maggie is no witness, she claims, because the drugs probably made
her think she was being held captive by Liza Minnelli. He's reluctant to
accept her offer. The cop returns with his statement typed up but Brady
won't sign it.
the prison, Hope is in the infirmary when Lee shows up with Pam, whose
tendon was slashed. They talk and Hope starts to worry when Pam tells her
that she has no family on the outside. Hope whispers to her to insist on
having her surgery at University Hospital or risk death. Pam tells Lee to
take her to the real hospital. The warden steps in and says that's not going
to happen because they have the Loma virus over there. Later, Hope notices
that the order on Pam's paperwork says that she's to be cremated. That sets
off alarm bells to the ex-cop. She tries to wake up Pam but she's been
heavily sedated. Hope breaks into a locker and whips out a cell phone. When
she tries calling Jenn, the warden catches her and rips the phone out of her
hand. Hope claims she was just calling her family but the warden is furious,
revokes all of her privileges and decides to place her in solitary.
At Casa DiMera, Elvis flips when Marco calls to tip him off about the
wedding. "Samantha is marrying that Neanderthal!" he yelps, furious that his
children are witnessing 'the farce'. Nicole tries to calm him by pointing
out that Sami won't see her children again after tonight. She reminds him
that Sami's marriages only last a day to six months. He hopes this one
sticks. Spending a lifetime with an idiot seems an appropriate fate for both
of them. Nicole offers to help him with the kids.
the park, Sami and Rafe exchange their rings. All of a sudden, Gabi brings
out Christmas ornaments and they decorate a tree. The clergyman takes out
some cords and Caroline starts reading the Bible to explain the ritual they
are performing. Everyone takes a cord and they are tied together to
symbolize how they will be bound together for all of the days of their
lives. The ceremony eventually ends. The bride and groom kiss and she cries.
"For the first time in my life, I feel like anything is possible," she says.
A star shoots down from the sky and they wish on it. EJ shows up to announce
that their time is up. Sami sends everyone else away and Elvis tells her
that her time with her children is up. They keep bickering and he gets
nasty. When she flips, Rafe pulls her off EJ. Elvis accuses Sami of never
putting her children first and declares that he is taking them away from
their 'narcissistic, promiscuous' mother. The children return and EJ tells
them they're going to live with him. Johnny doesn't want to leave Sami and
Rafe. He starts doing the twist and his father talks him into moving back to
Casa DiMera. As he holds his son, he prompts Nicole to take Syd from Sami's
arms. Sami cries. Nicole cringes. "I gave you a chance," Nicole reminds her.
Sami keeps crying and hands the child over. EJ tells Johnny his mom is
crying because she's so happy to marry Rafe because he means more to her
than everyone else. Sami tries to say goodbye but EJ yanks the kids away. As
he and Nicole leave, Sami cries so hard that it turns into uncontrollable
jogs into the hospital to get an update on her cousin form Ben. They begin
apologizing to each other for the other day when Maggie is wheeled in. Jenn
freaks. Ben rushes off to treat Maggie. Jennifer questions Victor. Ben soon
returns and tells them that Maggie is doing surprisingly well. Jenn rushes
in to see her. Victor goes in later and she asks him if he put Viv in the
sarcophagus. He says that he did, but he wasn't going to let her die, just
leave her in there until she was brain dead. Maggie says it was horrible in
there and he took pleasure in torturing his wife. It scares her to know he
could do that and she blames all of this on him. He nervously repeats that
he loves her. She believes it, but she orders him to leave her alone
forever. Sadly, he shuffles out.
