It's Too Late
and Nicole rush home and find that his father and Kate are gone. She starts
congratulating him for winning but he's not ready to celebrate quite yet.
They make out anyway. He can't get over the fact that there is suspicion on
Abe. "How did you fix this?" he asks. She shakes her head and doesn't want
to talk about that. A call comes in making his victory official. He picks
her up and spins her around, thanking her for believing in him. EJ wants to
call Lexi but Nicole says that's a bad idea at the moment. They're sure that
Abe's fall will lead to Lexi returning to the family fold. He runs upstairs
to work on his acceptance speech. She gets pensive and makes a call before
going upstairs to leap into bed with her husband. He pours champagne and
toasts to her. After sex, he falls asleep and she slips away to make a call.
"We both know the truth and need to talk," she tells someone on the phone.
and Ian are kissing outside the square. She slaps him off and reminds him
she's married. He's sure she feels the same way he does. They start making
out again. This time he pulls away so she'll be left wanting more. She
accuses him of just being a seducer but he says no other woman has made him
feel the way she does. Letting her go was the biggest mistake of his life.
Kate thinks this is just an act and tells him to find some naive woman to
try it on with. He's sure she will remember how well they 'fit' together and
walks off. She's exasperated. When she gets back to Casa DiMera, she finds a
note from her husband. It says that he's leaving for awhile but explains
her place, Madison digs out her wedding ring and puts it on her finger as
she thinks of Brady. He appears at the door. He sees the ring and demands
the whole truth. She explains that she met Ian when she was in college and
trying to get her company off the ground. He quickly swept her off her feet
and helped her build MadWorld. She claims that Ian never loved her. Ian
seemed like Mr. Wonderful but was really cold and controlling. He had lots
of other women. There was one he put above all the rest: Kate. Seeing how
intimidated she still is by Ian, Brady gets confused. They argue and she
insists that she still owes Ian. Although she kept trying to push Brady
away, he wouldn't go and she fell for him. She apologizes profusely and
insists that she despises her husband. Brady can't understand why she is
still married. Ian walks in and explains that she's tried to end the
marriage, but he won't let that happen. "Divorce is not an option," he says.
home, Abe finds Lexi packing and asks her not to go. He insists that he did
not fix the election. She doesn't want to listen to his excuses. Lexi admits
that most of their problems have been her fault but the trust they've
developed amounts to no more than words. He says that he loves the town and
couldn't stand idly by for EJ to take over. When he talks about making
sacrifices for the greater good, she gags. She says that he's not the same
man anymore and no one will look up to him from now on. Jenn calls to inform
him that EJ won. Abe goes back to begging his wife not to leave. "It's too
late," she says. He thinks they should be bigger than this. She's not. She
feels like a fool. Abe says that this is all going too fast and they need to
slow things down. Lexi won't change her mind. "I'm taking Theo," she
announces. He begs her to stay once again. Since she refuses, he offers to
leave so their son's life won't be disrupted.

is on the phone doing damage control from home. Jack walks in and she yelps when
he startles her. He has something important to talk about. Abby rears her head.
"I hate fighting!" she blurts out. She starts talking about modelling, which
doesn't make her mom happy. Jack tries to referee. Jenn makes her case against
it. Abby makes her case for it and asks her mom to trust her. Jenn still finds
it hard to believe her little girl has grown up. She gives her daughter a hug
and agrees to support her. They all agree to have dinner and Abby runs off. Her
parents talk about how great she is. "Sometimes I wonder what we did without
you," Jenn tells Jack, adding that he really has changed for the better. He
thinks he's the same jerk he's always been but she insists that he's become more
mature. All of these compliments confuse him. She's realized again that she
loves him. Throwing her arms around him, she declares that she wants them to be
a family again. He doesn't know what to say. He's afraid that he will hurt her
again and can't risk putting her through that. "It's better that we're
separated," he says, explaining that he is doing this because he loves her. They
kiss and he runs out.
drops by the loft to see Sami. Eventually, her daughter lets her in. Rafe walks
in, wanting to take the kids to school. They're already gone. Things are
awkward. Marlena tells her daughter to talk to Rafe. Sami doesn't like her
swanning in to dole out advice. The shrink lectures them about how good they are
together. Sami orders her out but her mom won't budge. Rafe says he is the one
who has to make things right. After he leaves, Sami challenges her mom to blame
her for everything. Marlena squints and then taunts her. Sami starts to shake
and accuses her 'mommy dearest' of teaching her how to tear a marriage apart.
Marlena can't believe they're having this conversation again. "It's about time
you grew up," she tells her daughter, explaining that hurting Rafe is hurting
the children. Sami wishes her mom would defend her for once and claims she never
hurts her children. Her mom keeps lecturing her about Rafe and accuses her
daughter of repeating her mistakes. Sami claims she would never do that so her
mom points out she has already done it to Will. "You tell me what you know,"

and he's sorry. She's not sorry. He loves his wife and tells Abby bluntly that
there can never be anything between them. He offers to get her a new work-study

confess to Carrie... today.

I Know Exactly How That Feels.
the loft, Sami barks at her mom to tell her what Will told her or get out.
Will arrives and is giddy to see his mom being lectured. Marlena thinks they
need to speak alone. Will smiles and admits that he told the shrink
everything. "What did I do to deserve this?" Sami complains. "I think I've
got a list somewhere," Will jokes. Sami thinks her mom must be loving this.
The shrink isn't. Sami bellows but her mom doesn't think that will fix
anything. "Seriously, tell me I'm adopted," Will snipes. Marlena stops his
stream of Sami trashing and asks her daughter to simply let her help. Sami
cries and explains herself. Her mom understands that she was just trying to
avoid facing her grief by having sex with EJ. Sami tells Will she wishes she
could fix this. Her mom promises that things will be alright and they hug.
Marlena says it's time to tell Rafe everything. She's sure he will forgive
her. Sami is sure Rafe will run off with Carrie. She tries to make them
promise to keep her secret. They won't do that so she lashes out at them. "I
can't change who I am. I can't change that I'm selfish. But that comes from
having a mother who only thinks of herself," says Sami. "I know exactly how
that feels," Will adds.

he only wants to run their company successfully and claims he's just there
to mend fences. Brady gags. Victor looks over Ian's new business proposals.
He's impressed. Brady squints up a storm. "You cannot lose what you never
had," Ian whispers to him as he leaves. Maggie and Victor listen to Brady
vent about Madison. He just can't trust her anymore. Maggie is sure that
Brady is really the man in her heart. When he walks off, Maggie starts
aggressively cleaning. Her husband guesses he hurt her feelings. Victor
claims she's the best thing that's ever happened to him, even if that means
he's not the most attentive businessman anymore. "That's just business, you
are the love of my life," he says. They kiss.

and she's miffed that Madison's products are on display. With some
prompting, Quinn explains things bluntly. He is partnering with MadWorld now
and reminds Kate they had nothing in writing. When he leaves the ladies
alone, they level insults at each other. Kate thinks she must have a
personal vendetta. Ian wanders in and kisses his wife. Kate nearly falls
over. Quinn eavesdrops as Kate accuses Madi of being unable to handle the
fact that she had Ian's heart. Kate says that men like her, but Madison
hasn't been able to satisfy Ian or Brady so she'll always be a loser. After
some more barbs, Kate leaves.
hope you're not breaking my heart for nothing," Abby tells Austin in his
office. She thinks he needs to tell his wife about everything that happened
between them. She also thinks they should tell Carrie today. When he tells

she did in the past. She urges her daughter to come clean with Rafe so they
can move on. Will has to go and see Sonny. "Don't let Mom hurt you," he
warns Marlena as he goes. Sami accuses her mom of using her closeness with
Will against her. She thinks she wants to be a mother to him since she never
was one to her. Marlena ignores this and recycles her previous lines before

won't issue visas for Marlena and Bo. John is sure Stefano is behind this.
They pace around. Bo's been thinking of breaking into Casa DiMera to find
Stefano's envelope. They all hope he's miserable. Marlena joins them and Bo

way. Besides, they always win when they go up against Stefano. John thinks
they should leave tonight. Marlena is afraid but John assures her this will
be over soon and they can have another wedding. Bo isn't comfortable with
any of this but Fancyface has absolute faith in them. As John and Hope

it's actually his mom's secret. After some more prodding, Will tells him
what happened. As he explains, Rafe walks in and overhears that Sami had sex

bangs on the door of the loft. As soon as Sami opens up, he confronts her
and wonders if she still loves EJ. "I was just so upset," she says, claiming
it was the worst mistake of her life. He says she's destroyed the family.
She's been lying right to his face for months. Even more disturbing is the
fact that she's good at it. She throws what he did with Carrie back in his
face. "You gotta be kidding me?" he shoots back. She suggests that they work
through their mistakes. He thinks that could have happened if she'd come to
him sooner, but now it's too late. When she accuses him of breaking up the
family, he forbids her from putting that on him. She says she loves him.
"You're not capable of real love," he says, storming out.

him. He runs around to the back door and bursts in. The women yelp as he pummels
Elvis into the floor. Once the men are split up, Nicole threatens to call the
police. EJ says no and Rafe explains that her husband had sex with his wife.
Nicole needs some clarification. Elvis doesn't deny it. His wife is crushed and
slaps him when he tries to explain. Rafe gets to do the explaining. Sami and EJ
claim it was just a mistake. "No, we were a mistake," Nicole tells EJ. Sami
tries to leave but Nicole won't allow it. EJ claims it was like an 'out of body
experience'. His wife thinks this just proves he has feelings for Sami. EJ
thinks that's ridiculous. Rafe declares that he's done with Sami and Nicole
tells Elvis that he threw away everything they had. Elvis pleads for a fresh
start. Sami tries asking Rafe for that. Nicole pulls off her ring. "I hate you,"
she whimpers at EJ as she runs out. Rafe accuses Sami of being self-destructive.
She insists that what happened meant nothing. "It meant something to me!" Rafe
says. He shoves EJ and threatens him. Sami gets between them. Rafe declares that
neither of them are worth the trouble and walks out. Sami tells EJ they have to
fix this. He says they are not a team and tells her to get out. They yell in

that Stefano didn't have enough time to plan any of this. They head over to the
pub. He asks her about the mess with Rafe. She tells 'Uncle Bo' it's none of his
business and throws the Carly affair in his face. He tells her that he's had
feelings that destroyed his marriage too and just doesn't want her to make the
mistakes he has. She opens up, explaining her situation with Rafe. He thinks she
needs to take an honest look at the situation and figure out what she wants. Bo
wonders if a relationship with Rafe is worth everything it would cost her.

Neil away and runs. Sonny chases after his friend. Will claims that never would
have happened if he hadn't had so much to drink. Sonny doesn't think it happened
because of the booze. Will is in denial but his friend knows what he's going
through. Will runs off to Marlena's. He's shaking, pacing and confused. She
holds him as he cries. When they sit down, he explains what happened at the
party. He's surprised when she's not surprised about him kissing a guy. Her
heart goes out to him and she admits she's suspected he's been dealing with this
for a long time but knew he had to figure it out on his own. Will can't remember
