Drowning In Drama.

Lucas and Elvis are trading barbs in the coffee shop. Lucas suspects that he's trying to get Sami back and he's not going to let that happen. Elvis sighs and says he is just helping Sami and the children. They argue about Will and EJ reminds him about the blackmail. Lucas starts rubbing Nicole's pregnancy in his face and accuses him of seeking revenge on Rafe. EJ reminds him that he has a fiancee and wonders why he's even there. They rehash their past disasters with Sami. Elvis starts laughing at him and Lucas threatens him before plodding off.

Nicole wanders the square and sees an ad for maternity yoga at the spa. Rafe joins her and they chat about it and that their paternity ruse will be harder to maintain than they expected. He thinks she should do some yoga to relax but yoga is so relaxing it stresses her out. He keeps giving her a pep talk and encouraging her to think positively. She doesn't know why he's so helpful. He admits he has a thing for damsels in distress. As they hug, Lucas walks by and tells them to get a room. He backtracks and congratulates them before filling them in about EJ giving Sami a place to live. The men talk alone. Rafe says Sami isn't his business anymore and if Lucas has half a brain, he'll walk away from her. "Don't get sucked into her drama, it will drown you," Rafe advises. Meanwhile, Nicole strolls into the coffee house and runs into EJ. He promises to behave himself for the baby and apologizes for what's happened. Elvis says that this baby is proof that they should be together. Elvis urges her to come clean but she thinks he would take her child away and accuses him of running after Sami. Nicole begs him to leave her alone and walks out. He calls Sami and says they need to talk about their future.

Brady runs into Madison at the pub. They start bickering about Ian. He wonders what her husband has on her. When he tries touching her, she pulls away and repeats that he needs to stay away.

She claims that she wants to help Basic Black before he runs it into the ground. She's called over a member of the fashion press so they can do some damage control. They work together to charm the reporter and cover for the dinner party disaster. Brady gives him a scoop and declares that he is doing a cross-branding with Mad World. The reporter is happy and runs off. Madi isn't so thrilled. He says they have to follow through on the promise now or they'll be in trouble. Brady kisses her. She giggles and pulls away, saying that he'll have to behave if they are going to work together.

Ian has Kate in his room and coos about how he has never stopped loving her. They leap into bed. She says that she would have waited for him if she knew the truth about why he walked out on her. He hated himself for leaving her. He declares that he's finished with Madison and just wants to be with her now. She gets pensive. Kate feels like she's been in Marlena's shadow for so long she'd forgotten what it was like to come first. After they work up an appetite, he calls room service to order her favorites. She stares at her wedding ring and thinks of her husband. Suddenly, she starts crying that she has made a terrible mistake. As she gets dressed, he tells her that this is not a mistake.

Meanwhile, Stefano is chatting with his goon about the situation. He plans to leave them in their alternative personalities.
