The Parent In This Relationship.
runs into Carrie at the office. He tells her that Sami proved that she
despises EJ enough to have sex with him. Their marriage was all one big lie.
He wonders if he failed her but Carrie assures him that none of this was his
fault. She also tells him that her sister must have treated him so roughly
because of her guilt. He thinks she's being incredibly generous. Carrie
leads him out to the pub for chowder. As he spoons it down, she tells him
that marriages are tough and then regales him with the tale of Victor and
Caroline. She urges him not to walk away from his commitment. He's not
convinced. The topic turns to her relationship with Austin and she awkwardly
says she's working on it. As they leave, he admits that he will probably not
be able to trust Sami again.

who filled Rafe in. They both plead innocent. She blames her mother for all
of this and tells her she's hurting everyone. Sami rails about how she keeps
ruining her life. Will points out that she had sex with EJ on her own and
she needs to stop blaming other people for her mistakes. Sami keeps ranting
about how her mom destroyed her family. "For once in your life, please stop
talking," Marlena tells her daughter. She urges Will to finish what he was
saying before they were interrupted. He can't talk with his mom around and
leaves. Sami keeps complaining. Her mom tells her to be there for her son
for once. "For years, Will has been the parent in this relationship...
maybe now you can be the parent he deserves," the shrink says. Sami moans
more. Her mom asks her if she's ever noticed 'signs' from Will. Sami is
clueless. Marlena tells her he needs his mom right now. Sami turns the topic
back to herself. She grunts about losing Rafe. Her mom is sorry about that,
but if it happens, it's her fault. Marlena tells her again to take
responsibility for her life. Sami refuses to listen to her anymore and
finds Will in the square. Will tells his friend that his grandma took his
news well but their conversation was cut short by his 'lunatic' mother. "I
have no family anymore," Will says. Changing gears, Will tells him that he's
not gay just because he kissed a guy. Sonny though he'd figured more out but
Will is still confused. He's been fighting his feelings for so long... "I
have no idea what to do," he admits. Will can't stand the thought of his
family rejecting him. His friend tries to be optimistic but Will is still
afraid of losing his messed up family. Sonny promises that things will get
easier, but first he needs to accept the truth for himself. He tries
convincing him of this with some Oscar Wilde quotes. Will is still skeptical
but Sonny promises to be there to help him.

stand up, she collapses. He takes her to the hospital. She wakes up and he
explains that he's running some tests. The doctor thinks he should call
someone but she insists on taking care of herself. Daniel urges her to vent
to him. "It's the same old stupid story," she explains, relating her latest
relationship woes with Elvis. He made her fall in love with her and then
cheated on her with Sami. She feels like she deserved that for being dumb
enough to let him back into her life. As she becomes distraught and cries
about how much she hates EJ, the doctor holds her. He knows what she's going
through and thinks it was very brave of her to opening herself up again.
When he offers to call Brady for her, she repeats that she's on her own from
now on. After he leaves, she weeps. Later, the doctor returns and informs
her that she's pregnant.

talk out her problems and tells her how much he cares about her. She's still
annoyed that he didn't let her take the job at Titan and accuses him of stabbing
her in the back. He thinks she's really wrought up about something more
personal. She asks him to let her go. "I don't feel like a wife, I feel like an
acquisition," she explains. She's grateful for the things he's done for her but
she's changed and wants different things. He assumes this is about Brady. She
explains that he's her soulmate. Ian felt that way about her once. She thinks
she's about to get what she wants, but she's wrong. He's not about to let her
go. He announces that they are going out so she needs to stop looking like a

all of that again, even if she wants a baby more than anything in the world. The
doctor asks her to relax while he checks the results again. As soon as he
leaves, EJ shows up and demands to know if she's okay. "I'm here because of what
you did to me," she says. He's sorry. "Sorry doesn't cut it," she says. They

all. "Some people are, some people aren't," he philosophizes before announcing
he has to get back to work. They share an awkward hug. He returns to Nicole's

been spying for Madison. Kate's in denial. Ian says the partnership is done

this out. Hope doesn't want to do that but he thinks they need to face this
head on. Abruptly, he decides to give her some space. She guesses he's up to

people. The doctor urges her to ponder her options. She insists on having
the baby, regardless of it being EJ's. He suggests she tell her husband
about her situation but she refuses. Daniel tells her to think this through

going to be working out of town and needs a babysitter. "You miss the kids,
don't you?" she asks, admitting that she hasn't bothered asking anyone else
for this favor. He agrees to help out but rejects her offer to stay at the
loft. Pacing, she tells him how hard this has been for her and wonders if
they have a future. Sami apologizes for everything. He thinks they just need
to move on but she can't accept that she's lost him. Rafe could have

family and begs for another chance. "I'm sorry," he says, walking out.

sister right now. "We'll see," she says before walking off. When he turns
around, he notices Sami moping. She tells him to go to hell. They rehash
their screw-up and he tells her he's lost the only person who ever loved him
for who he is. Sami doesn't care and says Nicole is a 'stupid cow' who will
go back to him. "You are a selfish little bitch," he groans. They trade
insults. He thinks that the karma coming to her will destroy her. EJ has no

same reason she had sex with EJ. They discuss their son's latest behavior. He
assumes that Will will open up to him. They sit down and he questions how she

are delivered to the spa. There's no name on them but Gabi signs for them and

they are a couple now. When they walk off, she smashes the flowers and curses
herself for being too nice. Mel and Chad return and she claims it was a karate
lesson mishap. Abby strolls in and asks Mel to head up north with her to the ski
lodge. She invites Chad to come along but he thinks that would be a little
weird. Mel and Abby run off to check on reservations. Gabi advises Chad not to
be an idiot. Moments later, he tells Mel he's not going. After the two friends

and Austin arrive at the ski lodge. She's annoyed that he made her pack her

she is the one who screwed up. They go skiing. When they get back to the lodge,
she's eager to get back to their bedroom. They head up. After some scarf play,
the easy listening music comes on and the clothes come off. Downstairs, Abby and
Mel arrive. As they get their skis, Austin and Carrie wander by. "We all ended
up at the same place! What are the odds?" Abby asks. Austin narrows his eyes.
Brady stumbles out of the pub, distracted by thoughts of Madison. He heads to
her place to see her. She assumes he's there to lecture her again but he's not.
Brady tells her how much she hurt him, but he knows that's only because of how
much he loves her. Losing her would hurt him even more than what's happened.
He's done with being angry. "I need you," he says. They kiss and he assures her
this is for
keeps. She warns him that getting Ian out of her life won't be as easy as it
sounds. She's afraid of what Ian might do to them. Brady insists that he can
take care of this but she will have to give up something that she loves:
MadWorld. Madison loves Brady more than her company. They leap into bed.
In Alamainia, Hope is disoriented by her flashbacks. John assures her that this
is all meaningless. She knows, but it doesn't feel that way to her. Suddenly,

situation and assures them that whoever they are waiting for should be along
eventually. After making a lot of vague comments, he walks off chuckling. John
and Hope ponder their next move. He tries calling his ISA contact but has no
luck. They head back to the hotel and find Agent Walsh's corpse in their room.
