daughter. Maxine calls and the parents head to the hospital to see Mel. Over
there, Nate is monitoring Mel and telling her that he wants to spend the
rest of his life with her. Before she can say anything, her parents bustle
in and want to run a million tests. She yelps at them and wonders why her
mother is there, although she's happy to have her around. Once the women are
alone, Mel wants to talk about when she gave her away as a baby. Carly
starts sobbing and looking for excuses but her daughter says that she now

get over herself. He gets snide and hangs up. Meanwhile, Taylor is leaving
Casa DiMera when she runs into EJ in the doorway. She accuses him of playing
games with other people's emotions. Nicole interrupts them and tells her

and storms out. Nicole tells her husband he was mean. "What is it with you
two?" she asks. He claims that he's just annoyed because she is so naive.

in the dungeon, Stefano watches Rafe wake up and try to figure out what's
going on. "I think I made a mistake," Stefano mutters. Since he told him
what he was going to do in advance, he'll never know if he's faking it. "Maybe I should just kill the bastard and get it over with," he says. As
Rafe keeps asking where he is, Stefano says he won't be fooled by his act.
He points a gun at Rafe and demands that he tell him the truth or die. Rafe
continues insisting he has no idea what's going on. Stefano goes upstairs as
EJ sends his wife and daughter out. He fills his son in and explains that Rafe's memory is gone. EJ wants to see for himself. His father explains that
