Dealing With Disaster.

On the pier, Viv tells Gus how delightful is was to stick it to Carly. They start plotting to break into Casa DiMera. He tells her Kate will be out for a facial. "Isn't that like sweeping the beach?" Viv snipes. Later, Philip and Chloe wander down to the pier and she tells him how nice he is. Viv returns looking for her scarf and starts sniping at Chloe. "Dealing with her is like dealing with disaster," she snipes. He threatens to throw her into the water. Viv continues trashing Chloe. He starts strangling her with her scarf and then stops and pats her on the back. "When you come to the waterfront, you run into the scum of the earth," he says as he leads Chloe away. They go to the pub and she worries about Parker. Philip's more worried about her and encourages her to go back to singing. A random guitar player walks in and asks her to sing. She doesn't think she can do it. After some goading, she goes up and butchers a classic negro spiritual.

At the hospital, Carly thinks of her fight with her son and resists taking some pills. She dumps them and walks to the nurses' station where she runs into Lexie, who asks her to work in the OR. Carly thinks that's a bad idea and talks her way out of it.

RoboRafe goes into Fay's room and tells her she has to die. She wakes up and starts begging for mercy. He unplugs her machines and tells her that he's not happy about how things have turned out but there's nothing he can do. He suffocates her with a pillow and then sneaks out.

Nicole and her sister return to Casa DiMera. Nicole continues to wonder what her mom was trying to tell her. Inside, Elvis complains to his father about Chad's bad taste in music. When he wanders into the foyer, Nicole is there. She makes a joke about her car problems but he thinks it's lame. They start bickering about who should be with Fay right now. The sisters head back to the hospital. Carly assures them that their mom is sleeping peacefully. They hear Fay's machine start beeping. The doctors rush in while RoboRafe sneaks out. EJ arrives and tries to keep the sisters calm. Carly comes out and tells them their mom is dead. They all go in to see her. Nicole is outraged and starts blaming Lexie. She demands an autopsy but her sister says she looks peaceful. EJ holds his wife as she breaks down. Carly explains that Fay must have suffered an instant, massive stroke. That's not enough for Nicole. She returns to her mom's side to weep. EJ joins her and assures her that nothing could have been done. Taylor offers to call Brandon and leaves. Nicole asks for a moment alone and asks him to be nice to Taylor. When he wanders out, he tries to comfort Taylor but she doesn't appreciate it and jumps away. She weeps about losing her mom. He hugs her. Meanwhile, Nicole promises her mom that she will discover EJ's secret.

RoboRafe goes to the station and Roman lectures him for going out without his partner. He tells him he's being dumb. RoboRafe tells him not to get his panties in a wad. Roman has to leave to take a call from Lexie. When he gets back, he informs RoboRafe that Fay died of natural causes.

Gus and Viv sneak into Casa DiMera. She sends him upstairs and is shocked to discover Chad on the couch. "You're one of Stefano's past indiscretions, I'm one of his past wives," she says, claiming she's just there for a visit. He tells her to leave and ring the bell next time. Stefano returns and he shudders to see her. He sends his son upstairs and she begins making excuses. He scowls and threatens her until he gets a call. Once he gives her the boot, he mumbles to himself, "Dead?" Later, Viv meets up with Gus and asks him if he found anything he liked in Kate's closet. She lectures him for screwing up their scheme. He explains that the DiMeras have a jail cell in their basement. "Who doesn't?" she asks. He explains that it's been used recently

A Dumb Rebound Thing.

Outside of Casa DiMera, RoboRafe thinks about killing Fay when Dario calls and says he wants to help pay the rent. Inside, EJ checks in on Taylor when he runs into her in the living room.

Mel finds her dad at Java and wonders why he skipped out of a PR meeting with Jennifer. He thanks her for nagging and changes the subject. She explains that her reward offer brought in some tips. He's impressed, hugs her and leaves. She stares at donuts and then jogs outside. When she gets down to the pier, a masked man with a knife grabs her. He orders her to pull the reward. Dario runs over and the men pummel each other. The dude runs off and Dario asks her what that was all about. "I think that was the guy who killed Arianna," she says. They head to the station. RoboRafe fobs them off on some other cop, which infuriates Dario. RoboRafe blows up at them and plods off. "That's so not my brother," Dario comments. He decides to get to the bottom of this. She insists on going with him. Meanwhile, RoboRafe heads back to the loft. He sends Johnny to get him a beer.

At the hospital, Jennifer thinks of Daniel and then spills her coffee all over the office when Maxine walks in. They start talking about the doctor. "Damn that man is fine!" the nurse says. Dr. Jonas shows up. He and Jenn awkwardly start working. Maxine feels out of place and leaves at the first opportunity. "I think we need to talk about us," the doctor tells her. Jenn claims there is nothing to talk about and refuses to be honest about what's going on. After some prodding, she admits they have chemistry. He thinks it must just be a dumb rebound thing. They talk about how they don't want to use each other and agree not to act on their chemistry. After they shake hands, he heads out and she tells herself that this won't be a problem.

Down the hall, Carly tells Stefano his latest checkup was really good. He starts telling her about Chad and how having a child around makes life worth living. She thinks about her son saying that she was dead to him. She tells him about her problems and he offers her sympathy until his daughter shows up. After he leaves, Lexi is weirded out that her friend was just opening up to Stefano. She suggests that Carly needs a break from work. Carly insists that she's fine and then claims that she banged her elbow so Lexi writes her a prescription for pain killers. Carly adds an extra number to it. Later, she bumps into Daniel and he offers to take a look at her elbow but she gets defensive.

Nicole goes into her dead mother's room. Holding her hand, she tells her that she has to find out EJ's secret. Fay leaps up in bed and starts screeching, "You have to know!" over and over again. Nicole snaps out of it. This was a dream. Taylor comes in and tells her about the strange vibe downstairs. She goes back down and tips EJ off that her mom told Nicole something before she died.

He stutters and tells her this isn't important. Taylor returns and pulls her sister away as Stefano arrives. His son tells him that something is not right.

April 13,
Sounds Good To Me.

At the loft, Johnny gets RoboRafe a beer. Sami walks in on this and sends her son away. She starts lecturing her husband for drinking in the morning. When she rants at him, he blows up at her and then explains that Fay died. She's baffled that he cares so much. They repeat the same argument they just had. It gets heated and he assumes she's looking for a divorce. She explains that they need some breathing room while she figures things out. She's going to stay with Eric. "Have a nice trip," he says, turning on the TV.

At Casa DiMera, Nicole eavesdrops as Elvis and Stefano discuss their secret involving Rafe. As she backs away, she bumps into a table and makes some noise. EJ goes out to investigate and finds his wife. She plays dumb. Stefano heads off and Elvis does his best to downplay everything. Once Nicole leaves, she has to keep herself from crying and wonders what the secret could be. Sami arrives and goes in to see EJ. She's there to offer condolences and then explains that she is taking the kids to Eric's... without her husband. EJ senses something is wrong so she says she's just giving her husband some space. He claims that he's very proud of how she's handled this situation. Elvis walks her to the door assuring her that all will be fine. As soon as she's gone, he starts chuckling about this.

Nicole shows up at the Safe loft. RoboRafe lets her in. She thanks him for offering his condolences and appreciates that he's been making an effort to be civil. Nicole coughs until he goes off to get her some cough drops. She searches for a spare key and picks up Eric's number. When he returns, she asks him what's going on so he explains Sami left him. She gives him a hug and he starts smelling her hair. It takes some effort to get out of his grip. She offers him a pep talk about his marriage, tells him to take the opportunity for some 'R & R' and then winks. "Sound good to me," he says before pulling her into a kiss.

Bo gets his newspaper on the porch and thinks about sex with Hope. She comes out and they cuddle. They go inside and tell Ciara they need to have a talk later.
