see his wife. Meanwhile, down at the pier, Sami tells a confused Rafe that
Will is finally safe. She hugs him. He's baffled so she explains that
Stefano thinks Will is innocent. He doesn't think that's good news if he
actually did it. Rafe thinks that Will will become a prime suspect in the
investigation unless someone can take his place. He points out that Will is
hardly acting innocent. His sister calls and informs him that EJ is waking
up. They run off. Lexi has calmed her brother slightly but he starts to
freak out when he realizes he's in the hospital. Again, he demands to know

is under control. Nate wanders by so she gets off the phone. They begin
talking about Daniel and the man himself pops up as the intern blurts out

breaking up their friendship but she doesn't feel like she can ever trust
her again. Nicole apologizes some more. "Maybe this is why you're alone now.
It's nobody's fault but your own," Chloe observes. Nicole pouts even more
and refuses to accept that no one loves her. Crying, Nicole declares that
there's someone who will always love her and runs off to be with them. She

bush and wonders what's going on.

It's Like A Nightmare.
the hospital, Sami reluctantly goes into EJ's room. He stares. She remembers
braining him with a bullet. "I'm so happy to see you," he sighs. She cocks
her head when he begins referring to her as his wife and talking about their
honeymoon. Sami asks him what he remembers. When he tries to do that, he
begins freaking out and demanding to know who put him in there. Outside,
Lexi sobs and tells Rafe that Elvis seems to be miraculously healing. He
worries about what that could mean for Sami. Lexi goes to see her distraught
brother and gives him a sedative. He demands to speak to Sami some more.
Lexi, Rafe and Sami speak in the corridor. She warns them that they have no
idea what her brother knows or doesn't and they need to act like Sami is
married to him. The truth would kill EJ. Sami returns to EJ's room. He
grumbles about being shot and then notices she's not wearing her wedding
ring. She claims she just took it off when she was washing Syd. He asks her
to bring the kids in. She goes out to Lexi and tells her about the request.
Lexi begs her to just go along with everything. "It's like a nightmare,"
Sami sobs into Rafe's pecs. He says that they can handle this. She fetches
the children and slips on the rings. The kids run into their father's room.

that he doesn't live in the mansion anymore; he lives with Rafe. EJ's eyes

had a fight with her mom. He assumes it was about him but she insists it
wasn't. She worries that she can't be who her mom wants her to be.
Steph's, Kayla talks to Daniel about Chloe. He doesn't know why because he
thinks that Chloe's the best. The topic turns to Carly, who Kayla really
does not like. They debate Carly's choices and he talks about how much he
loves being a dad. When he mentions that Chloe is pregnant, she aggressively
bites her lip. He guesses something must be wrong and tells her how terrific
his life is. He gets a call, invites her to the wedding and heads out. Steph
returns and her mom explains that they need to make sure the test results
were actually changed. She says that it could have just been a clerical
error. Kayla suggests they just keep it quiet. This makes Steph excited.
Kayla says they have to make sure it was a mistake first.

I Remember Everything.
the pet cemetery, Keith, the undertaker, offers to get Brady Sparkle's
remains as soon as possible. He grudgingly goes off to dig them up for
transfer. Brady bumbles about how sorry he is to have to do this for his
mom. Nicole eavesdrops in the shrubs. Brady swears about Viv and starts
drinking out of his flask. The undertaker returns with the paperwork and
Brady signs off on it. After he grouchily walks off, Nicole rushes over to
chat with Keith and flashes him a big smile. She tells him how much she
admires his warmth and compassion and asks about the man and his orangutan.

as a TV reporter. She claims that's not the case and then sneaks off.
is in the mausoleum talking to the sarcophagus about how much he misses his
daughter. Viv listens and squeals. He leaves. Brady arrives soon after and
they argue about Victor. She's sure that he will rescue her but Brady's sure
that his grandfather is thrilled to think she's long gone. They accuse each
other of being delusional and he says that Victor would dump her in the pet
cemetery if he found out where she was. In the mansion, Nicole slips into
the main room to grab a drink when Victor catches her. He barks and she
begins asking if Viv had a pet orangutan. "Yes, we've got several
orangutans. A couple of wombats too," he says before walking off. Nicole
feels like she's in a nightmare. Henderson comes in and suggests she look
for Brady in the mausoleum. She rushes outside and eavesdrops at the door as

is gone. Back in the mausoleum, Nicole looks around and wonders if Brady is

warns him that there is more he needs to know but she'll tell him in person.
He gets off the phone and breaks the news to Kate. She tries to be
supportive. He kisses her and runs off. Kate sighs and worries that her
husband could still find out that she drove Sami to shoot EJ. She paces and
talks to herself, wondering if this is the right time to tell Stefano about
the son he doesn't know he has.
EJ's hospital room, he asks his son to explain why he's living with Rafe.
Sami decides to rush the kids out. EJ begins demanding answers but Lexi
comes in and orders her brother to get some test. Sami goes out to see Rafe
and dumps Johnny on Maxine. She explains what just happened. "What?" Lexi
bellows as she walks out. She orders Sami to go back in and convince EJ that
she's still married to him. Rafe thinks that this is all idiotic. The doctor
advises them not to cause any brain hemorrhages and plods away. Sami sobs
and then returns to Elvis. He instantly demands to know why she is living
with Rafe again and begins ordering her around. She claims that her son is
just confused and they're living at the pub. He becomes irate and his
machines beep wildly. She promises that all will be okay when he is better.
"You are what I live for," he tells her. Rafe comes in and EJ gets paranoid.

he expresses concern about EJ. After he leaves, Stefano demands to see his
son. His daughter warns him about everything and then he goes in to see EJ
as Sami and Rafe leave. Rafe turns to Sami and whispers that the stress
could kill EJ and suggests she take a shot at it. "Accidents happen," he
says. She cries and tears off the rings, telling Rafe he's all she's ever
wanted. They kiss. In EJ's room, he goes on and on about what an angel
Samanther is. Stefano can't take it anymore. EJ gets him to calm down and
explains that he won't lose Sami as long as she keeps thinking that he
believes they are still married. "I remember everything," he says.
drops by Casa DiMera following a phone call from Kate. She offers him a job
but he doubts that Stefano would want him working for his company. When she
tells him that she'd like to see more of him, he stutters and tells her that
he's flattered but uncomfortable. She laughs and makes it clear that she's
not making a pass at him. He accepts her offer and leaves. Kate chants that
she will make this work.

No No Nannette.
the mansion, Brady wonders what Nicole was asking Victor about. Victor says
that everything is under control. Brady notices that he lost his bluetooth
and starts to panic. Victor furrows his brow. Brady runs off to buy a new
earpiece. His grandfather guesses something is up.
Nicole is in the mausoleum. She finds Brady's bluetooth and slips it on,
hearing Viv begging for mercy on the other end. Nicole tries talking to her
and realizes it's Viv. "Oh no Nannette it's you. Have I told you how
wonderful you look?" Viv says. Nicole refuses to believe this is for real
and assumes she's just been drinking too much and there's no way Viv could
be in Isabella's tomb. Viv begs her for help. Nicole shrugs and tries
opening the sarcophagus. As she pulls on the lever, Brady enters. "Oh no no
Nannette!" Viv groans. Nicole tells Brady that Viv is in the sarcophagus and
not dead. From the look on his face, she guesses he put her there. He tries
to cover but she assumes that Victor made him do this. Brady says that
Victor didn't do anything. If he's changed into some kind of nightmare, it's
because of her. "Victor is a sick son of a bitch," she says. "Well Nicole, I
suppose that makes you my mother," Victor quips as he intrudes. He confronts
Brady for acting weird and tells Nicole to get lost before he kicks out her
teeth. She guesses that he has no idea what's going on. Brady covers by
claiming that he and Nicole are just in there because they are involved
again. "You're having a romantic assignation in a
mausoleum with a woman who gets loaded and talks about monkeys?" Victor
summarizes. He's sick of them and bids goodbye to Isabella, saying that
she's lucky not to have to see what an idiot her son is.
Casa DiMera, Kate informs Will that EJ regained consciousness. "That bastard
is going to make it?" Will asks. She advises him not to talk like that. He
vows to go after them if he goes after his mom. Kate tells him to relax and
he rushes off.
Sami, Johnny and Allie head over to the new apartment he got for them. Sami
smiles and sobs. She's amazed. Rafe takes the kids to show them their bunk
beds. Sami loves everything but she's worried about what EJ will say and
what it will do to his 'brain thing'. Rafe is tired of another man kissing
on her. She talks about how much she wanted to watch EJ have a stroke but
Rafe doesn't think she could do that. They go over what a court case against
the DiMeras will be like and he gives her another pep talk. Will shows up
and she informs him that this is their new home. Will isn't in the mood to
get enthusiastic. Whispering to him, she says that EJ has retrograde amnesia
and he won't remember anything she did. Rafe sticks his nose in and asks her
what she did. Will covers. Sami and Rafe relax, drink beer and discuss his
taste in interior design. "It's awesome," she says. The place reminds him of
the safe house. When Will takes the kids out for ice cream, Sami announces
that she has something big to tell Rafe. She starts talking about how they
are living in sin and it's messing up Johnny's life. He thinks they should
get married as soon as possible to fix things.
the hospital, Elvis tells his father that he's faking his memory loss and
remembers everything. Right now, he has to keep his eyes open and work out
what to do. He recounts what he knows about the wedding and soon starts
ranting uncontrollably. When he nearly has a stroke, Stefano runs off to
call a doctor. Nate dopes EJ up and tells Stefano not to upset his son
anymore. Kate rushes in and he explains that his son remembers everything.
Meanwhile, Nate questions EJ, which annoys him. He screams at him and kicks
him out. The intern informs Stefano that his son is feeling better. He sends
Kate home and then rushes to his son. Elvis explains that he lost all power
over his life when he told Sami the truth. That will be the last time he
ever gives up control. He's going to keep Sami in the dark while he works
out a way to get the kids back. When Stefano asks him if he knows who shot
him, EJ claims he does.

Mounting The Pink Sarcophagus.
the mausoleum, Nicole tells Brady they need to talk about the fact that he
shoved someone in a coffin. Viv watches on her sarcophascreen and worries.
Brady laughs when Nicole tries to lecture him about morality. She realizes
that she has the upper hand for once. He begins telling her about what a
great crypt Viv has and claims that Viv asked him to put her in there to
atone for her sins. She doesn't buy it so he tells her about Maggie. Nicole
decides that Viv deserves this but worries about what this is doing to Brady
on the inside. He says it's too late to go back and his insides aren't as
fragile as they used to be. They debate what to do and he offers her a deal,
reminding her that they had a good thing, even if only for a night. He
kisses her. She slaps him. Brady says there is always fire between them and
then they start making out. Viv groans.
At their new place, Sami tells Rafe how exhausting it is to be her and how
it must traumatize her kids that they are living in sin. Rafe wants to marry
her as soon as possible and shows her his plan to get married at the Green
Mountain Lodge. He tells her it can be their second chance. She thinks about
putting a cap in EJ. He senses something is up but she won't explain. She
spouts off so he backs off and admits that he's 'agent all up in her
secrets' too much. They suck face until Roman shows up. He informs them that
he's on his way to question EJ. "He doesn't know anything," Sami snaps. They
debate what he could know and Roman vows to find out what 'the worm' knows.
After Roman leaves, Rafe asks Sami to tell him what she knows. "I know who
shot EJ," she starts.
the hospital, Stefano talks to Elvis about what happened and asks him if he
knows who did it. EJ's machines start to beep. "I shot myself," he tells his
father. Stefano doesn't believe it. His son keeps repeating that he did it
but Stefano can prove he's wrong. He explains that the forensics don't back
that up and the gun wasn't in the room. EJ swallows this and says he thinks
he knows who did it. He thinks it's obvious that it was Nicole since killing
her is on his to-do list. Stefano explains that she was surrounded by FBI
agents at the time and points out that there are two more obvious culprits.
He tells him that the forensics say Will couldn't do it so only Sami is
left... and she tried to shut off his life support. Elvis is flabbergasted.
Stefano has an idea of how he can pay her back. Roman shows up for EJ's
Maggie's, Mel uses the interwebs to show Maggie pictures of the house she is
going to get. They take pictures of themselves smiling until Philip comes in
and says that someone trounced on their offer. Mel runs out the door and he
trails after her. Maggie wonders what's going on. Philip and Mel go to the
pub and she says it feels like someone is trying to stop them from getting a
house. Meanwhile, at the mansion, Victor barks at his agent to close on the
house. He feels bad for doing this. He heads over to Maggie's under the
pretense that he is there to see his son. He's not there so Victor decides
to hang out. She's realized that he would do anything to get what he wants.
Philip and Mel arrive and Victor putters off. "This is all your fault,"
Philip tells Maggie, explaining that his father has been buying all of the
houses they've wanted. He calls around to confirm his suspicions. Maggie
realizes that Victor is stalking her in a really expensive way. Maggie
leaves them alone and Mel suggests they move in with his dad. They call
'Papa Vic' in and tell him the news. "Don't ever call me that again," he
says. Mel holds his hand and asks him if they can play mahjong. He runs away
and Mel vows to be disgustingly cheerful to him. They tell Maggie that this
will keep Victor away. She's not so sure that's what she wants.
