Mush.

Mel and Dario are in the alley. She gets an update from her dad by phone. Mel moans to Dario about what a mess things are. They head to the station to see Rafe. Dario asks his brother to help but he can't step on Bo's toes. The brothers bicker about their trust issues and Rafe reminds Dario that he was not his double. They apologize for not being there for each other. Rafe says he's proud of how he has turned out and hopes they can stop being jerks to each other. They hug.

Viv is interrogating her son in the street and then babbling about Carly's life in ruins. He thinks about rescuing the doctor and tells her that he doesn't enjoy revenge. She gets sentimental and worries about him but he insists he's fine. Viv takes out a gift she tried to give him when he was ten. His father sent it back so she's carried it ever since. It's baseball cards. They both tear up and he thanks her. She goes to the club and Gus arrives. "You're nothing without me," he tells her. Viv guesses he feels unappreciated. He can't stand to see her deluding herself about her son and walks away.

Carly flashes back to her secret coming out as she sleeps in Quinn's room. She wakes up and wonders if it was all a dream. The doctor shakes and rambles. Quinn arrives with her Aspirin. She babbles about her dream and Lawrence. She asks if she can stay a little longer. He doesn't think that's a great idea but she keeps asking for help. Holding the baseball cards, he tells Carly she can stay until she is strong enough to see her son.

Nicole is startled to find EJ standing on the pier. She doesn't think he should be out of the hospital. He says he remembers who attacked him. Nicole defends Brady but he's not impressed. She wonders if he's going to let this go rather than launch a war. "I hate your guts... but I don't want to see you dead," she says. He offers to do her a favor in return for saving him. She asks him not to kill Brady. EJ offers to give her money to move instead. "Go to Hell!" she says. Nicole vows to get justice for Brady if he dies. Elvis smirks.

Taylor walks into the mansion and finds Brady cocking his gun. He tells her that EJ knows and he's just getting prepared. She worries that he actually seems to be enjoying this. He drinks and smiles. Throwing her hands up, she suggests that he take off with Nicole. Brady accuses her of trying to send him packing so she won't end up fighting with her sister over him. When she tries calling the cops, he smashes the phone. He orders her to stay out of this so she knocks him out with a vase and grabs his gun. When she heads down to the pier, she runs into EJ.

Maggie sneaks in the back door of Chez Rouge and finds Victor barking on the phone for people to search for Carly. She apologizes for being hard on him and being scared. He gets flirty. Maggie says he makes her feel cherished and loved. "We're not as young as we used to be but we're not dead," she says. He suggests that they leave Salem. This infuriates her. He explains that he just wants to spend all of his time focusing on her. "That would be more than alright," she decides. They have dinner and she tells him he's a 'mush'. Knowing that made her fall in love with him again. They kiss. He walks her home. "How about you stay for breakfast?" she asks, taking his hand and leading him upstairs.

A Bigger Jerk.

Taylor goes down to the pier with Brady's gun to chuck it in the water. EJ interrupts her and wonders if she's returned to their meeting place to be sentimental. He gets flirty and asks her what's in her bag, but he already knows. Elvis accuses her of protecting one of his enemies. "The person I'm protecting is you," she says. He thinks this is really about Brady. She claims she was just trying to stop a bloodbath. EJ starts yelling that she's betrayed him. "You're an even bigger jerk than I thought you were," she says. He flashes back to getting attacked and then she reminds him about getting her mom killed. She doesn't want to see more people hurt. Sobbing, she admits she still loves him. He gets coy and asks her to marry him. When she refuses, he has a fit. After realizing that throwing the gun away would be pointless, she offers it to EJ and asks him to do the right thing.

Will and Gabi make out all the way to work. They find Sonny in the pub and he asks Gabi to the baseball game. She's not interested and volunteers Will. The men knock fists. When Sonny steps away, T. strolls over and starts making insinuations. This annoys Will, who insists that Sonny isn't some 'perv' who is after him. He threatens to take him outside if he makes one more dig about Sonny. T. declares that he's just joined a frat so he can spend time with people who won't think he's a 'homophobic idiot'. He storms off. Sonny returns and feels bad for costing Will a friend. He starts talking about how gorgeous and amazing Gabi is. Will looks confused.

Kinsey is mooning over Chloe as they walk the alleys. Chloe's looking forward to getting a paycheck for her singing. Quinn calls and orders her over to the club. When he gets off the phone, Kate drops in on Quinn to complain about Chloe's recital. He reminds her that they aren't partners and he's not interested in dealing with her. He walks away and she decides to take care of this herself by getting some leverage. She remembers seeing Viv with Quinn and strolls away to investigate. Moments later, she runs into Gus at the Cheatin' Heart. Saddling up to him, she asks him to buy her a drink. She starts making digs about Viv and then claims she's been looking for new talent. He refuses to turn his back on Viv but slips up and says things were good until 'he' came into the picture. He accuses Kate of roofying his drink and stumbles off.

Chloe meets Quinn at the club and he lectures her for making a career move without consulting him. He says she has a booking tomorrow night but offers to reschedule it for tonight. She cringes but he threatens her. He makes a call and then sends her off. Meanwhile, Kinsey goes to the pub to chat with Gabi. They gab and Kinsey soon guesses that Gabi hasn't slept with Will yet. "What is wrong with him?" she asks. After Sonny leaves, Gabi strolls over to Will. He gives her a kiss and says he wants to be alone with her tonight. They run upstairs to her room. As they make out, Caroline interrupts and asks Gabi if she can come back down to work. Downstairs, Kinsey goes outside and finds T. pouting. They start randomly making out and then check into a hotel. He gets champagne and she gets ice, spotting Chloe having cash dropped between her cleavage as she enters a room with a john.

Nicole strolls into the mansion and finds Brady unconscious on the floor. He wakes up and explains her sister knocked him out. She makes him a drink and guesses what happened and why. Nicole starts blathering about how Taylor must have realized that EJ is trying to change again. Hearing this yet again makes Brady gag. She tells him that she loves him, not Elvis. He says every time they get together it's a disaster and orders her out for her own protection. She pouts and departs. Nicole heads to the Cheatin' Heart to see her sister.
