Sick And Sicker.

At the Sapphire Club, Viv notices Quinn is distracted by Mel's TV ad for Carly. He pretends he's watching baseball. She goes on and on about revenge. He stutters and runs away. She picks up the paper and see the artist's sketch of the man who rescued Carly. "I'd swear that was Quinn," she says. When Quinn gets to his room, he discovers that his blanky is a mess and Carly is gone. Meanwhile, Carly runs around the gutter in her new plaid shirt. Knowing that her family knows about her problem crushes her. A junky comes up and he offers to sell her a hit. She doesn't buy it but sits in garbage and cries until Quinn shows up. The doctor explains how everything just fell apart for her. "I need help," she admits. As he promises to help her, Viv arrives and watches quietly.

Victor is at Maggie's hospital bedside. He promises not to let this happen again and then walks out to Daniel to announce he's taking Maggie to his estate to be watched by his security team. The doctor says he can't move her. Jenn tells him just to get a guard for the door. Hope shows up and says Victor has the right idea. Lexi pops in and takes Jenn aside to say the hospital board now know that Carly's a dope fiend thanks to Mel's ad. She warns her that if she uses hospital resources to search for her again, she'll be out of a job. She orders Jenn to go on TV to say that Carly has been fired for abusing her position. Jenn is furious and quits. Meanwhile, Victor and Mel go to see Maggie and apologize for being hard on each other.

Taylor and EJ are outside the pub. She asks him not to lie to her anymore. He sits on the fence and agrees. Elvis can't understand why she keeps hanging around him. They rehash the 'you deserve better' argument until the junky walks by and panhandles some change. EJ puts his coat on Taylor and tells her she's not safe.

Chad and Abby are making out on the pier while Dimitry watches. She pulls away and they start bickering about their families. He can't turn his back on his. Sonny pops up. When Chad asks him about what he would do in his position, Sonny puts his arms on his shoulders. Chad throws his arms up. Dimitry misinterprets this and shoots him. Elvis hears the shot and runs over. Meanwhile, at Casa DiMera, Kate fills her husband in on the latest Maggie news. He worries about retaliation. EJ calls to say that Chad's been shot. He tries to stop his brother's bleeding and says this shot was meant for him. He yells at Sonny and Taylor to go and then drags his brother to the hospital. When they get there, Chad's rushed into surgery. Victor notices EJ is covered in blood. "Is that what I think it is?"

Jenn and Hope are at the station talking. Hope complains about the cases she's been kicked off of. Jenn offers to get her some publicity. When Hope putters away, Jenn gets a call and runs off. She meets with Daniel and Mel, who also received a weird call about Carly. Quinn sends Carly inside. She cries to her family and tells them she needs their help. Meanwhile, Viv goes down to the pier cursing her old enemy.

Nicole shows up at the mansion and asks Brady why Dimitry called. Brady explains he needed permission but doesn't explain what for. She can see he's wired and offers him some 'distraction'. He turns her down because things are 'a little volatile'. Dimitry calls to say his job is done. Taylor bursts through the door and accuses Brady of having Chad shot. He's startled. She rants at him for nearly getting a bunch of people killed because of his paranoia. "You are sick and you are sicker. I am done with both of you," she says. The sisters bicker and Taylor storms off.

You Swine!

Quinn runs into Viv at the pier and she decks him for helping Carly. "You swine!" she says, tearing into him for betraying her. He claims that Carly isn't a monster and he was just trying to do the right thing. He thinks fate brought Carly to him so he could do the right thing. She doesn't like him using her mortal enemy to make him feel better about himself. Quinn tells her that she's had her revenge. Carly's life has been ruined. Viv still isn't satisfied.

Nicole drop into the Cheatin' Heart to see her sister. She stands up for Brady and tells Taylor to drop the self-righteous crap. They argue about who the biggest hypocrite in town is.

"This ridiculous blood war is going on because of you," Taylor accuses, repeating her argument that EJ has changed and then running away.

Justin shows up at the mansion and orders Brady to listen to him for once. The lawyer says that the family is being gossipped about on talk radio. Brady tells him to take his nose out of this. "You're no Michael Corleone," Justin says. Brady suggests that he kiss his ass. The lawyer rails at him for being a drunk who gets led around by the nose by Nicole. He storms out. Nicole shows up to complain about her sister. "If she doesn't understand us, who needs her?" he asks. They hug.

At the hospital, Chad urges his brother to get out of the family. He's tried to make this his family too, but he can't look over his shoulder every day. "We will protect you," EJ promises. However, he's been his their father's son longer than he's been Chad's brother so it's no choice. After Elvis leaves, Abby tells Chad he was pretty amazing. He says everything changed today.

Hope arrives at the hospital. Lexi tells her Maggie isn't doing well and she needs her to sign some papers. Maggie's will has a 'do not resuscitate' order and they have to take her off the ventilator. Down the hall, Victor is angry when Stefano offers him peace. "It's much too late," Victor says. Stefano pleads. Kate arrives to back him up. Hope and Lexi come in. They explain that Hope has power of attorney and she has to follow Maggie's orders. Victor wants to challenge it so Hope speaks to him alone and then leaves him to say goodbye. Sadly, he tells Maggie he was naive to think he could protect her. Outside, everyone mopes for awhile. Lexi goes into the room and explains the procedure to Victor. He kisses Maggie and Hope takes him outside. Stefano and Kate apologize again as EJ arrives. EJ starts questioning his father, but Stefano says nothing matters anymore. Back in the room, Lexi is about to declare Maggie dead when she notices she's breathing on her own. Hope runs out in tears to tell everyone. Victor promises Maggie no one will hurt her again. She wakes up to say she loves him. "Make peace," she whimpers.

They give her a pep talk. Mel goes off to call rehab. They want her to come in today. As Mel takes her mom away, Jenn gets a call about Maggie waking up. She and Daniel hug. Meanwhile, Mel takes her mom home to pack up. She takes her pills away and flushes them.

Back at the hospital, Stefano asks Chad to come home with him. Chad refuses. His father warns him that it isn't safe. "I'm done," Chad announces, saying that this can't be repaired.

Maxine gives the doctor a hug and Carly apologizes. The nurse tells her not to resign: they need more competent doctors. When she steps away, Viv pops up and starts taunting her enemy. "Do you get your drugs from the hospital coffers or do you meet your drug dealer at the toxic waste dump?" she asks. Carly tries to run. Viv keeps her there to explain that Quinn is her son. "Oh that's just mean," Carly snaps, refusing to believe it. Viv tells her that Quinn was part of her revenge plan and he's been providing her drugs. Viv tells her she'll like rehab: all you do is talk about yourself. She shoves some pills in her hand and walks away. Mel returns and takes her mom away.

At Casa DiMera, Chad packs up his stuff. Kate asks him if he'll bother checking on his father when he comes back to get the rest of his stuff. "You care about yourself, no one else," she suggests, telling him not to leave. Chad stares at Abby and then tells Kate that his father just wanted another ally. She insists that Stefano is very sensitive and he's broken his heart. Chad can't risk his life for him. The women start bickering. Kate urges him to be his own man and not let anyone tell him his family isn't good enough for him. "Love and romance are fleeting but family is forever," she says. Kate blames all of this on Abby.

She repeats her 'I know you can change' argument. He takes her by the hand and leads her to the pier. Elvis explains that seeing his brother get shot made him realize he could never walk away from his family. He says that Victor doesn't want a truce so he has to stand by his father. They rehash their usual argument. This time he says that he only gave up his children because he realized he can never change. He asks her to run away. They rehash their usual argument again. This time she says that she is leaving. After she does, he heads home to change his shirt and Kate tells him Chad moved out and broke Stefano's heart. She thinks that he might die.

Carly storms out and pops her pills. Quinn calls his mom to rant at her. Taylor confronts him about the show he just put on. "You should know. You've been the star of quite a few of your own, haven't you?" he snipes. Meanwhile, Carly checks into rehab.
