Elvis, The DiMera Impersonator.

The cops arrive at Casa DiMera and cuff EJ for killing his father. They know Stefano was not his father. Sami is gobsmacked. Will rushes in. Lucas tells him to stay away from his boss. He starts asking Sami what the hell she is doing there. "You are a bastard!" Sami blurts at EJ before bitch slapping him. EJ is taken away and Lucas bugs Sami for answers. He needs her to make a decision about who she wants to be with. She tells him that EJ is being set-up. He continues lecturing her anyway and demands that she stop lying to herself. Lucas gives her an ultimatum to make up her mind and storms out.

Down at the station, Will sneaks in to see his boss. Roman doesn't want him there but EJ insists they are allowed to discuss his legal issues. Roman advises his grandson to cut his ties now and Rafe warns them that the whole place is wired. Will apologizes to EJ and says that he should have been more careful. "That's okay. You never know when Brady incompetence will kick in," EJ says before ordering him to dig up some surveillance footage. After William runs off, the cops tell Elvis they are getting his cell ready. He threatens their jobs. "Yeesh," says Rafe. As soon as they swan out, Sami shows up making the stink face. She lectures him for lying to her and accuses him of blowing up her life. He tells her that Lucas is the one who leaked the letter and suggests that she should hop along and make amends with Lucas if she really wants him. EJ sniffs at her and she declares that she won't buy his lies anymore. He continues insisting he's innocent. Outside, Rafe remains convinced that there is something wrong with the case. Spencer calls and asks him to chase down a lead.

Madison takes Brady up to a conference room at Titan. He's horny but she needs to pick up her tablet. Kate and Ian arrive and Madi tells them that they are leaving for their honeymoon. "We are going to get married tomorrow," Brady explains. Ian turns red. Brady gets in his face and threatens to put his 'ass in traction'. Ian's not impressed. Madi tells him not to underestimate his enemies. She's finally come to see him for who he is and that makes her free. Lucas arrives as Ian is making insults. Brady and Madi run off and Lucas happily tells the others he just saw EJ getting arrested. He fills them in about Sami's suspicions and the surveillance footage. Ian anxiously gulps his herbal tea and then excuses himself. Kate tells her son that EJ will 'always be the sun' in Sami's orbit. He loves her anyway. She trashes Sami and doubts that prison will keep her away from Elvis. Meanwhile, Brady and Madison are in bed, recalling their segue adventures by candlelight. He tells her that having her with him during his relapse made all the difference. They agree that their marriage will only be about them and no one else.Sonny is with Will at Casa DiMera, aka "The Temple of Doom." They sort through the surveillance footage. As they try to close in on the other figure, Ian is busy using one of his minions to access the footage. Ian orders him to destroy it. As he erases it, the footage vanishes for Will and Sonny.

Nicole is in her room getting a romantic dinner ready. A pensive Daniel arrives. He's shocked when he sees he's lit candles. He can't believe she's trying to seduce him when his daughter is missing. She insists that's not the case. She just wanted to take care of him. He backs down but says he can't have a break right now. The doctor gives her a check-up and tells her how amazing she is. He says that everything will be alright. She tries to make him eat but he has to go.

They hug and she tells him he's brought her nothing but joy. Meanwhile, Carrie corners Rafe outside the square. She says he's the best person she's ever known. Carrie wishes she'd met him first.
