their combined intelligence will let them push the company ahead... that and
their shared hatred of Sami. Lucas starts defending his ex. Kate thinks Ian
should fire the other woman and make her CEO. He refuses. Lucas thinks his
mom should take the offer. She shruggingly agrees but wants her son to work
with her. Ian's okay with that. Lucas protests and says he's returning to

life like his father. She reminds him that he is the mayor and has a family.

her and kisses her neck. She tells him that she will only take him back if

his mother. He shakes his head and says he won't work for Stefano. "You know
you want to," she goads. He say he'll be in touch and leaves.
Nicole's, EJ is shocked when she suggests that they leave Salem behind. She
says this is the only way he can have her. He's still reluctant. She thinks
this must be because of Samantha. He thinks that's preposterous and claims
he just wants to start afresh. His phone rings and he leaves. She breaks
into tears. Later, she heads down to the coffee house and reads about Sami's
new job in the paper. Samantha strolls in. "Congratulations bitch!" Nicole
says. Sami accuses her of being jealous. Nicole guffaws. Sami rubs her nose
in her success and Nic tells her she doesn't deserve any of it. "Rafe

the oven?" Sami asks. They bicker and Nicole stomps away. When she gets to
the square, she starts having pains.

in my heart it is not your time," he says. She thinks it's time to tell

outside the room. They go out to see him and John barks at him to back off.
Lexi rushes by and hugs her father. Kate tells them what's happening and
asks them to leave him alone. Embarrassed, John and Marlena leave to find
Abe to tell him how sorry they are. "There's no hope," he says. The shrink
tells him there's always hope. Abe is overwhelmed. He doesn't know how he
can go on without Lexi. The couple go to see Bo and Hope, who have also been
trying to digest the news. Bo is eager to hold his daughter again.
Meanwhile, EJ and his sister cry together. She tells him that she needs to

condolences and Lucas takes her away. Stefano offers to make calls but his
daughter insists there is nothing they can do. He hugs her as she cries. EJ
arrives. When Dr. Yu shows up, Stefano sends the children away and the
doctor tells them all they can do is keep Lexi comfortable. That's not good
enough for him. She explains that the tumor likely developed from exposure
to a gas, particularly the kind found underground. He asks her to explain
this again and becomes pensive. "This can't be my fault," Stefano gasps to
himself. Abe overhears this.

understandably, just wants to break her heart for breaking his. Kate tells

would even take you," Abby jokes. Gabi puts a brave face on but Mel insists
that they can't go to Chicago if they are worried about her. Abby offers to
stay with Gabi but that's not good enough so Mel suggests that the Gabster
