he needs. She informs him that what happens will actually be Sami's
decision. Stefano explodes. His daughter explains that EJ legally empowered

things out. Mel joins Chloe and Philip and asks her if she can throw her a
baby shower. She wants a theme shower with lots of glitter. Philip decides

covers. Philip returns to his wife and the shower discussions continue.

shot instead. He tells EJ to fight and vow to find who did this to him.
the waiting room, Sami takes Daniel aside and they talk about EJ's
condition. She worries about having to make the decision to pull the plug
and wonders when it's the right thing to do. He explains that there are no
clear cut ways of knowing; it's more of a wait and see thing. After the
doctor leaves, Rafe comes over and they discuss letting things 'play out'.

just letting EJ go to make their lives easier. As she heads for the room,

with her plans for his sister. She tells him all about her ideas and he
wonders what she's up to. Viv claims that she's just trying to prove she
cares. He tells her that no one cares she cares. "You can't fix a marriage
made in hell by moving dead bodies around!" he shouts as Victor strolls in.

tells herself that Philip and Victor are all she has so Maggie has to go on
a long trip to nowhere. Meanwhile, Philip urges his father to find someone

and decides she has to find a way to keep it shut. As she ponders what to
do, Nate walks in and demands to know what the other man is doing there
again. Ian decides to leave and Nate asks for some answers.

kids and fill her grandma in on what's happening. Kate corners Sami again

have I done?"
