The Queen Is Not Amused.

Jenn nearly catches Carly stuffing her face with pills in front of the pub. They go inside. Jenn's phone isn't working so she goes through Carly's purse for hers. They start talking about when they were in boarding school. Jenn asks her about her feelings for Daniel. The doctor insists they are just friends but urges Jenn to go for it with Dr. Jonas. She jogs out

Quinn and Chloe are in his hotel room smooching and talking about how much fun they're having. She asks him about his traveling salesman job. He tells her it's boring but he'll be around town a lot more to see her. "That's better than being alone," she says. They make out and then he leaves for a meeting. She seems happy. As he wanders through the alleys, we see he has her on video.

In the pantry, Sami sticks the fake credit card in RoboRafe's face. He smugly tells her it was canceled. Rafe sends Sami off to run an errand and then stands quietly so his doppelganger will talk his head off. He loses his cool when RoboRafe trashes Sami. She shows up with a laptop. When RoboRafe makes another snide remark, Rafe punches him out and then hacks into his account. He digs around but doesn't find any connection to the DiMeras. She starts to think he might be giving up but he's not. Sami starts crying again about how she should have known that she was with a fake Rafe. When she tells him that RoboRafe rescued the kids, he wonders why. As they talk, it comes out that Sami knows all about EJ's dummy corporation, the same one that paid off RoboRafe. He thinks it's time to bring in the cops.

Chad shows up at the hospital with flowers. He runs into Lexi and starts stuttering until Abby drifts over. Lexi leaves as Chad hands Abigail the flowers. She didn't know being a bitch would get her flowers. "You and me... I don't think it's going to work," she says, pointing out how annoying she is. He thinks that's just because she cares. Chad wants to have lunch with her every day. She'll have to think about that but kisses him. When he leaves, she runs into Carly, who spills her purse. Abby manages to pick up Carly's pills.

Taylor paces at the pier and thinks about EJ's assurances that he's not a criminal anymore. Nicole shows up and starts mocking. Taylor accuses her of being conniving and blackmailing EJ. The sisters argue and Nicole accuses her of getting 'friendly' with every man she's been with. Nicole insists that she, EJ and the kids are a family. He might be upset right now but he'll get over it. She barks at her sister to go far away and get her own life. They part ways. Taylor goes to see Lexi and wonders how she could have screwed up so much. Lexi lays all of the blame on Nicole. Since Taylor knows her sister will never back down, she decides to take action.

EJ is shredding his drug files at Casa DiMera. He explains to his father that he's pulling out of everything except the legitimate side of the business. His father chuckles and doesn't see the big deal. EJ admits he might still be implicated in some crimes. Stefano wants more information about what's up but his son is evasive. When Stefano walks off, Nicole shows up to confront her husband about opening up to Taylor. She orders him to keep his mouth shut. He guffaws. "You're at the pleasure of the queen and right now she's not amused," she reminds him. He reminds her that she never holds the upper hand for long. She goes down to the pub to see Chloe, who tells her she met a guy. "Have you slept with him?" she asks before complaining about her sister. The diva tells her she can't go after her own sister. "She's dead to me," Nicole says. Meanwhile, Taylor calls EJ and asks him to meet her in the park.

Chad meets with Stefano at the Cheatin' Heart. He complains about his lunch schedule changing and asks his dad to have it changed.
