calls Nicole and sends her over to Maggie's, who isn't really thrilled to
see her at the door. "My life hasn't been this exciting since the day my
sump pump broke," Maggie declares, letting her in. The redhead wants to know
who sent her. Nicole admits it was Victor. "He thinks he's in love with
you," she explains before stuffing her face with carrot cake. Maggie rips
the cake away and demands more info. The blonde explains that Victor wanted
her to spin a sob story to make her feel bad for him. She claims that he has
really changed, become less edgy about business and more mopey about
Isabella. That seems to inspire Maggs' sympathy. When Nicole leaves, she
calls Victor to tip him off on how things went. He hangs up.
the mausoleum, Victor tells Maggie that he loves her. As she starts to
swoon, Viv knifes her in the back. This was a dream and Viv snaps out of it,
eager to escape and make her dream a reality. Victor shows up and they
bicker. He's amazed that she almost sounds reasonable. She offers to keep
her mouth shut and return to living in her room as his wife if he lets her
out and stops flirting with Maggie. He decides that he can't keep this from
Maggie much longer so he should let her out. Maggie walks in. Viv listens
and gags as Maggie tells Victor how kind he has been and how she doesn't
want him to be alone with his grief over Isabella. He apologizes for sending
Nicole over and tells her that he's realized there's no way things could
work out between them. "Don't ever come back," he says. He tells her about
what a disappointment he was to his daughter. Maggie is sure that Isabella
would love him no matter what. He may be cynical, but he has a loving heart.
Viv listens and cries as Victor softens to Maggie again.

takes the purse. They leave together and head over to the pub. She sobs
after seeing the yellow police tape on the street where her sister was hurt.

goes off to wash her face. He knocks the purse on the floor and searches

the hospital, the doctor tells Rafe that Ari is lucky to be alive and any
upset could destabilize her. He lists all of Ari's injuries. Rafe grumbles
about memory loss and hopes his sister doesn't remember they'd been
fighting. Meanwhile, EJ sits beside Ari. Her bruises are bigger. Her eyes
open and she tells him that she has the proof. Rafe enters and fumes but Ari
asks EJ to stay. As they argue about this, the doctor orders the men out as
Ari codes. The men pace in the waiting room and Elvis begins pushing him
around about who shot him. EJ claims he's the only person who cares about
Ari. "If she dies in there, that's on you," he accuses. Rafe doesn't like
that and chucks him at the juice counter. Rafe pounds on him until Lexi runs
in and breaks them up. EJ taunts Rafe, declaring that Ari will make it and
tell him the truth. Then Sami or Will will get what they deserve. The doctor
solemnly comes out and explains that they can put Ari on life support, but
she won't recover. He advises Rafe to call a priest.
and Caroline chat at the pub. Kenzie offers to take Syd to the pumpkin patch
and they go off. When they make it to the park, they run into Nicole.
Kenzie's amazed by how the little girl looks at Nicole. She's sure that Syd
still sees her as her mom; after all, it's not like Sami actually spends
time with her kids. Kenzie tips her off that she'll be back tomorrow at the
same time and they head off. Nicole sits on a bench and sobs, telling
herself that she needs to 'keep on trucking' and forget Syd... but she can
never stop loving her.

Kate wants to get rid of him but Stefano lets him in. Master Peterson-Woods
apologizes for being rude the other day but repeats that he doesn't think
working for them would be a good idea. Stefano says 'ciao' and departs,
leaving the duo to bicker about Kate's intentions. He stomps off. "You
little fool. You need me more than you know," she says. She sits down and
talks to Chad's birth certificate, wondering why Maddie put Stefano's name
on it if she never wanted him to know. She's sure that Stefano will be able
to accept Chad as his kid eventually and calls Chris to arrange for a

"It's just a matter of time," the doc says, urging Rafe to call a priest. EJ
stares. Rafe tries to digest this and then goes in to see his sister. He

she nursed him back to health. That was a miracle cat and he wishes God
would give them another miracle like saving her life. He calls Father Matt

he can call Ari's friends. He asks for her phone. The nurse can't find it.

alive to be hooked up to a damn machine," Brady says, telling her that he
will always care about her. Kate stands in the doorway as Brady tells Ari
about his crimes. Outside, EJ corners Rafe and badgers him about what his
sister knew. Meanwhile, Will follows Gabi down to the pier and tells her he

thought it would be so boring sitting in a coffin and waiting for poisonous
fumes to make you go mad?" Viv tells herself in her sarcophagus. Nicole pops up on the sarcophagus. Viv
offers her the opportunity of a lifetime. Nicole doesn't think she can do
squat. Vivian explains that she's a duchess with oil fields and has to give
them to someone. Since she doesn't have an heir... Nicole doesn't trust her
and turns her down. "You'll be broke and alone cookie," Viv taunts. Nicole
hangs up on her and then worries about Brady dumping her. She goes
downstairs, where she finds Kate trying to barge in past Henderson. Kate is
surprised to see her there. "I live here toots," Nicole says. Kate cracks
jokes and then mockingly tells her about watching Brady and Ari and how she
is the love of his life. This puts Nicole's nose out of joint and she walks
off. Kate tries to figure out what's going on and heads upstairs. She

on it. Kate tells her that locking her in there was probably the most
interesting thing that Brady's ever done. Viv offers her the chance to get
revenge on Victor. Meanwhile, Nicole wanders around until she runs into

something wrong with what happened. "Incompetence is not

to cherish each other. Mel only wants to care about honest people. "I know
that even if Daniel wasn't the father, you still would have kept your mouth
shut," Mel suggests. Carly decides this conversation is pointless. Her

sneaks into Ari's room and starts searching around. As she tears the room
apart, Will calls and she informs him she's got nothing so far. She drops

and says they need to chat. Sami claims she just stopped in to get a rosary.

floor. He picks up the box and they begin wrestling over it on the bed. She
grabs what she can and runs out the door. He throws the mattress around and
