I Know All About You.

Daniel returns home and tells Mel that he helped Dario move his futon. She makes faces and runs off to work, running into Dario in the hall. He offers her beer or a sangria for being his 'moving dude'. She makes an excuse to avoid it and heads to work. Her father shows up and starts teasing her about Dario. She complains that he gets under her skin like Philip used to.

Chloe meets with Justin at the Cheatin' Heart. She tells him that she's scared she might never see Parker again. The diva tells him about her nightmares. He furrows his brow and doesn't understand why she's talking to him. She needs him to check on her son but he can't do that. She sobs so he wipes his face until she runs away. Adrienne comes over and Justin doesn't know what to do. They leave and Chloe returns to ask Dario if she can hang her ad in the window. Kinsey walks in. "OMG! You're Chloe Lane. I know all about you," she gasps. She starts babbling about "Hearth & Home." Chloe shuts her down and walks out, running into Quinn in the alley by the trash. She's not happy to see him. Back inside, Kinsey bickers with Dario and shortchanges him as she flounces off. As he goes through her purse, Mel comes in, catches him at it and starts lecturing him.

Adrienne and Justin sit at the pier and discuss his options with Chloe. She worries about her. The diva mopes by and then starts hanging her ad on the walls as they leave. Quinn reappears. She asks him to go away but he wants to make up for insulting her. The diva claims that she would give back his money but she already donated it to charity.

At Casa DiMera, Stefano is concerned to discover that RoboRafe hasn't touched his bank account. Kate walks in and guesses something is wrong. She offers to help and then leaves for her meeting. He calls Marco.

Viv is with Gus in the pub wondering who Stefano was keeping in the basement. She wonders how Stefano can stand Kate. "Kate is going to have a very, very, very bad day," she says. Gus worries that she still wants to seduce Mr. DiMera but she's determined to outwit him. "I will bring Kate to her knees. How ironic: isn't that where she launched her career in the first place?" Viv muses. Moments later, Viv barges into Casa DiMera and announces that she has an offer for him. She gives him a chance to screw Titan. He likes that idea. As they toast to 'crawling into bed together', Kate walks in and stares daggers. Kate accuses her of being an old crone sucking up to her husband. Viv runs away. Kate teases her husband and he insists that Viv just amuses him. "It's not amusing to me," she says. Meanwhile, Viv hurries back to Gus and tells him that her plan to drive Kate crazy is working.

At the safe house, Sami catches Rafe trying to get a peak at her as she dresses. He's feeling better and can remember her giving him a sponge bath. She's sure everything else will flood back. He likes hearing her talk and can see how he would have fallen for her. Sami is determined to find the silver lining in all of this. As she babbles, he remembers their wedding. She tells him he has lots of bad memories to remember because of her because of EJ. He asks her if they ever have any fun. They stare at each other until RoboRafe bangs his head against the wall to break the mind-numbing silence. They bring him out and take out the gag. He wants food so Rafe leaves to get some, but stays by the door to eavesdrop. Sami warns RoboRafe that she has good aim and throws things at him, then slaps him. She interrogates him and accuses him of having fun being EJ's scum. "You're that guy who kicks puppies... because deep down inside you know that you're not really a man," she says. He gets nervous as she plays with the gun. RoboRafe says that Rafe is just a 'manny' who cleans up after her. Rafe returns and she flounces off, leaving RoboRafe to gloat about Sami in the sack. This leads to him get a punch in the head. When Sami returns, Rafe asks her if she slept with his impostor.

Jenn is on her phone at the pub, babbling about her upcoming date with Daniel. Justin wanders over to hand her some divorce papers. "It's final," he says before leaving. She reads them over until Hope shows up. Jenn's amazed that she's still thinking about Jack in spite of ending things. Hope starts spewing Alice Hortonisms until Jenn blows her nose on a napkin and runs off to get hiking boots. Then she heads over to Daniel's where he is packing cheese for their trip up the mountain. He senses something is wrong. They discuss the misery of divorce and he agrees to pre-empt their climb. She doesn't think she can be in a relationship right now. Daniel says that what went wrong was Jack's fault. She worries that he doesn't want something serious and this is all pointless. He tries to talk her around but she storms out.

The doctor doesn't know how anyone could abandon Jenn. She just happens to be in the next room and eavesdrops on their conversation. Daniel goes on and on about how terrific she is and wishes she had more self-confidence. When he goes home, Jenn shows up to say that she wants his cheese and won't let Jack ruin anymore of her life.

Nicole brings EJ breakfast in bed only to find him getting dressed. He hurls the tray at the wall and drops his wedding ring in her orange juice. She follows him downstairs, railing at him for getting scrambled eggs on the wall in their love sanctuary. "You used to be such a fun guy, now it's 'clean it yourself bitch'..." she comments. He doesn't understand why she is so immature and self-destructive. She warns him that she will be watching him from now on. He grabs her and threatens her to keep her mouth shut about Rafe. Nicole says that will only happen if he's nice. He rants that extortion is the only way she gets anything. Taylor arrives and eavesdrops. After a minute, she sneaks out. Nicole repeats her warning to her husband. Once she's gone, EJ mopes about being trapped and blames Rafe. Taylor rears her head again. "I know breaking things off with me wasn't your idea," she tells EJ as she approaches him. She demands to know what her sister has on him. Meanwhile, Nicole runs into Abe at the pier and says her sister was heading over to Casa DiMera.

At the safe house, Rafe asks Sami if she slept with the guy who stole his identity. She clams up but finally admits it. He doesn't know how she couldn't know it wasn't him in her bed. Sami tries explaining how he knew everything about her but she could tell something was wrong. He stares blankly. She cries and jumps up and down repeating her explanation. Rafe says he still would have known the difference if he was in her shoes. She knows that this is all insane and she fears that the nightmare isn't over. "I should have known," she sobs. He decides that he hasn't been fair to her. Rafe's just happy that they now have the chance to start over and fall in love again. Sami's amazed. She cries that she has him back and they kiss.

May 20, 2011

She offers to bring him lunch on the job.

Chloe walks into the pub and gasps as she finds Kate talking to Parker on the phone. The diva tries to grab the phone. The women bicker. Chloe worries if he's eating solid food or not. Stefano calls his wife and asks her over to Chez Rouge for dinner. Kate tells the diva that hanging out at bars in the middle of the day won't make her look stable and stomps off. Chloe sits at the bar to cry. Quinn shows up and she fills him in about Kate. This perks her up so she decides to fix herself up for their date. While she's in the toilet, he gets a mysterious call. When she returns, he's ordered her a drink. She spots Daniel and Jenn smooching outside and sucks down her lemon drop. Jenn comes in and chats with Caroline. Chloe has another drink.

Taylor shows up at Casa DiMera to confront EJ about being a murdering drug dealer. He wonders if she really wants the truth. She pouts. After he sarcastically tells her what a saint he is, she throws a drink at him. Taylor doesn't think he's clever and demands the truth. From the look on his face, she can figure it out. He insists that he didn't order Ari's death. Learning of her death made him want to turn himself in... so that's what he'll do. He hesitates and lets her watch a flashback about his father explaining why he shouldn't turn himself in. EJ says he couldn't turn himself in because he loves her. This doesn't impress her. He explains that this is who he is and she's just in love with the imaginary him. He'd like to be a better man and claims he gave up the drug business the day Ari died. She thinks he lets his father run his life so he challenges her to turn him in. Taylor refuses and he tells her that he lives with the guilt everyday. EJ claims that he hasn't done anything illegal since Ari died. She walks out and goes down to the pier to ponder. Meanwhile, EJ remembers giving his drug business to Quinn.
