their time in Paris. As she tells him how angry he made her, he smells her
hair. "Nobody gets to me the way you do," he admits. He leans in for a kiss

sent. "I never thought you'd ever need a sugar daddy," he says. When she
tries to slap him for that, he grabs her hand and kisses it. "You are such a
bastard!" she spits. He thought she liked that and pulls her into his arms.

his thumbs. Abby feels stupid for falling in love with a man who only wanted
one thing for her. "What an ass!" Carrie moans. "You can say that again,"
Austin groans. He says the guy probably didn't know he was leading her on.
"The first time he kissed me, I could hardly breathe," Abby says. Austin
keeps trying to rationalize the guy's behavior. "What am I supposed to do?"
blurts Abby. Carrie gives her a pep talk, saying the guy must be 'complete
scum' with a clueless girlfriend.

corners her and thanks her for giving Will a job. "You're a good influence
on EJ as well," she adds. Nicole gets sarcastic. Kate claims she's just
giving her her due. Nicole coughs out a compliment for her and then they
head in different directions. Elvis sits down with his father to explain
that this is only a first step for the family on the road to respectability.
The call comes in for Nicole. "I'm so sorry EJ," she says. He can't believe
it. He blinks wildly and starts stuttering. Stefano is smug and thinks they
should have accepted his help. He rants about how his son squandered his
family's name by putting it in the hands of 'some baby stealing bimbo' he's
been sleeping with. "Maybe Abe can appoint you to the school board," Stefano
snipes. EJ walks off. Kate stands up for her step-son but Stefano thinks his
son is just a lapdog. Meanwhile, Nicole starts making calls to fix things.

think," she assures him.

him with his walking stick and shoves him into the floor. Victor is baffled by
this scene. Brady explains that Ian is Madison's husband. Victor isn't happy
about this and rescinds his job offer. Ian tells him it's too late, whether he
likes it or not. He's already signed the contract and is raring to get to work.
Ian excuses himself. "What a jerk!" Maggie moans. She and Victor leave to call
some lawyers. He beats himself up about not checking Ian out more thoroughly. He

runs away instead. Abe makes his speech anyway and then gets down to whisper to
Jenn about what happened. He runs off to find his wife. He finds her outside the
square sighing. Abe tries to explain. She accuses him of being just as dirty as
her brother. He says he had to do something. She tries blaming Jenn but he won't
allow it. Lexi says that the only thing that stopped her from being like her
family was Abe. She walks away in tears. He chews his moustache.
Casa DiMera, Nicole assures EJ that the nightmare of Abe winning will be over
soon. They watch the news footage and wonder where Lexi was. Nicole tells her
husband to wait until he makes his concession speech. He doesn't see the point
in waiting and putters off. "Ai ai ai ai ai," Stefano groans. Nicole assures him
she won't let EJ down. She runs off and Kate shares a loving moment with her
husband before bringing up Alice's envelope. He wants to let sleeping dogs lie.
She stares into the fire and thinks of Ian. He senses something is bothering
her. Kate insists it has nothing to do with them. After giving him a kiss, she
leaves, asking him not to wait up for her. Once she's gone, he takes out the
envelope and finally opens it. "No, no... this can't be," he says as he reads
it. He cries. Meanwhile, Kate runs into Ian in the square. He assumes she's been
thinking about him. "You think enough about yourself enough for both of us," she
shoots back. They start kissing.

out. Meanwhile, EJ corners his sister and guesses something is wrong. He offers
his congratulations anyway. Abe joins them and EJ tries congratulating him until
Nicole runs over to say there were voting irregularities so there will have to
be a recount. Jenn runs over and drags her candidate away. She explains there
was evidence of ballot tampering and assumes they were set up. Roman arrives
with some election officials to say it was rigged. The officials take EJ away to
talk and Roman tells Abe he knows he would never do anything wrong. Lexi shows
up, and she's a lot less convinced. She spills to Roman about her husband's
double dealing with the debate. "I don't know what happened to the man I love,"
she cries, running away. Roman tells his friend they need to go to the station.
