Circling The Drain.
meets with Marlena in the coffee shop to talk about what a mess her life is.
She explains that Austin didn't cheat. The whole mess showed her that she
really has feelings for Rafe. Those feelings have not gone away. She recalls
everything that she's gone through to be with Austin. "How did you find the
courage to leave Dad and be with John?" Carrie asks. The shrink ruminates
and says it was the hardest choice she's ever made, but it was the right
one. Carrie begs her to just tell her what to do. Marlena advises her to
listen to her heart. Carrie knows what she wants and runs off. Roman calls
Marlena and she asks him for help with the John issue.
is at the pub with Sami, telling her he needs to go home. She begs him not
to. "You don't need me, you have EJ," he says. She objects to this. He
thinks it's obvious that Elvis still has feelings for her and vice versa.
She's in denial and says he's crazy. "What? Me shooting him in the head is
just a bump in the road to true love?" she moans. He pushes out cliches. She
says this is too stupid. He's relentless. She flashes back to sex with EJ
and smirks. Sami spills on herself. He assumes the wet spot means she's
thinking of EJ. He's starting to feel like 'the best friend in a werewolf
movie' who has to keep her locked up when there's a full moon. "I'm not
going to watch you circle the drain again," he says. She accuses him of
running away when he needs her. This infuriates him. He can't deal with her
anymore until she deals with EJ. After he storms off, Sami chats with
Caroline. She's afraid that some of what Lucas said might be right and then
hops away. "God only knows what she's going to do now," Caroline worries.
Sami chases down Lucas and tells him she actually has unresolved feelings
and Nicole are sitting in the square chatting. She lets it slip that she's
pregnant as EJ walks by, "We're p-p-p-pregnant?" he stutters. She tries to
run. EJ runs after her. Rafe gets between them. Elvis tells her she needs a
doctor and she should be worried. Rafe tries defending her and the men
bicker until she gets them to back down. EJ promises that he will be with
her every step of the way. She says she has a lot to process right now. He
wants her to move back to the mansion. Nicole tells him that they are never
getting back together. EJ aggressively clears his throat. "I really, really
hope you are not going to try keeping my baby from me, Nikki," he warns.
They discuss her medical history and he insists on being an important part
of the child's life. Rafe puts his arm around her and declares that the
child is his. EJ refuses to accept that. Nicole backs the story up. Elvis
says they won't get away with this. Carrie stands by and eavesdrops.
Alamainia, Gina and John are drinking champagne. He's nervous about their
deal with Stefano. He just wants to sell the egg and disappear. They toast
to fun until their guest is announced. Stefano strolls in and declares that
this is just like old times. They talk about how much they love playing
games and then play poker. John proposes that they gamble for a deal on the
egg. He orders that they have a new dealer and a fresh pack of cards. The
new cards and dealer arrive. Stefano still wins. "Now go get me my egg," he
demands. After he leaves, John tells her that Stefano has the dealer switch
the deck. This is exactly what they expected.

promise that they will never become one of those couples who never have fun.

to get lost so they enjoy themselves. She asks the count to go upstairs with
her. He's eager to get his sash off but she says they should eat some caviar
first. As he fetches it, she lets John in by the balcony. He has dope for
her to drug the count's drink. John hides under the bed while the count
returns with treats. She notices he didn't bring a glass for himself. The
princess turns on the peer pressure until he offers to get another glass.
When he looks away, she drugs her glass and offers it to him. After downing
booze they climb into bed. He passes out in the middle of the groping while
John comes out from hiding. They find the egg in a secret compartment. She
sends him off with it to wait for her.

you again!" he declares, storming away. He heads to Casa DiMera to tell his

not. She's sure that's because he's still hung up on her.

her. She doesn't want to talk but he does. He tells her he loves more than
anything in the world. Carrie declares that she wants to make their marriage
work because she's realized they can never have the same thing with anyone
else. They embrace.
Nicole and Rafe arrive at the hospital. Lexi isn't in her office so EJ goes
searching. Nic thanks Rafe for his help but she's freaking out. He assures
her that things will be okay and EJ will not take the baby. She doesn't
understand why he's helping her. He can't stand by and do nothing. EJ
returns to say his sister has the day off but he's sure there must be
another doctor. The men bicker. Nicole declares that this has to end. Rafe
covers. EJ leaves to find a doctor. "This isn't going to end well," Nicole

holds up the egg and she worries he's having second thoughts about their plan.

about the last ten years?" he asks, before calling her 'Hope' and encouraging
her to remember. "Who the hell is Hope?" she asks.

leave her alone. He thinks she's just in crisis mode because she doesn't have a
man. "Whatever it is, you did it to yourself," he says. She accuses him of being
