The Human Thermometer.

Billie strolls into the day spa and checks out some guy's ass. She's startled when she realizes it's Daniel's. They chat about how hard she's been working and he says that it must be helping Bo that she's by his side. She just wishes he'd wake up and asks him if Bo can really recover. Billie boxes a bit. That impresses the doctor but he thinks her footwork should improve. They start hopping around and she punches him in the gut. He's winded but checks her hand to make sure it's okay. That makes her uncomfortable. "I know your MO. You feel someone's glands, take their liver out and... all of a sudden, Dr. Dan is in love!" she moans. She accuses him of trying to seduce three generations of her family. He insists he has no interest in her. She backs down.

Abe runs into Lexi at the pub. She lets him sit with her. They awkwardly talk about Theo and then her 'evil family'. Abe wants her and their son back. He misses them so much and doesn't think their marriage should end over the election scandal. They discuss their son and she admits that she told him the truth about what happened. "He knows that you're not one of the good guys anymore," she says, explaining that Theo doesn't even want to see him. This upsets him. He asks her to tell their son how much he loves him. "The most important thing my mother taught me was to keep the faith," he says. Lexi's not sure she can trust him again. He vows to prove he can be trusted. She walks away.

Rafe shows up at Nicole's. She hides her pregnancy pamphlet and lets him in. He just wanted to make sure that she's okay after being harassed by EJ. She beats herself up for helping Elvis get elected. They discuss food and he opens his paperbag full of greasy food. She pukes. He feels her head. "What are you? A human thermometer?" she asks. After some probing, he guesses she is pregnant. She confirms it. He nearly pukes. Nicole tells him this has to stay a secret. Rafe reminds her that it didn't work when Sami tried to pull that. She admits that she's having mixed feelings. The baby is a miracle, but she thinks she'll die if anything happens to it. They discuss what she will do. She thinks she'll leave town. He keeps telling her to stay hydrated and see a doctor. She admits she's seen Daniel and then pukes again. When comes out of the bathroom, she collapses on the bed.

Lucas stops by Sami's office and offers to help her with the mole investigation. "You don't have to play whack a mole with me. Your son needs you," she says. He explains what happened with Will and Elvis. Lucas thinks that their son will be okay in the end but Sami has a fit. She worries that she screwed him up for life. They argue about whether their son knows what he's doing or not. He starts searching the computer for info on the mole. She confesses that she's the mole. He's furious. This gives him a headache. She insists that she's totally loyal to his mom now. "It's just so you!" he complains. He lectures her. She's tired of the 'Sami bashing' but Lucas keeps it up and accuses her of ruining their son.

Man's Best Friend..

Rafe is at Nicole's fussing over her. She doesn't think he should be worrying about her since he doesn't even like her. He calls Daniel over. When she tries to stand up, she falls over. The doctor sets up an IV for her. He lectures her about eating properly and insists that someone stay with her. She doesn't have anyone so Rafe offers. Once Daniel leaves, Rafe asks Nicole again if keeping her pregnancy secret is really wise. He knows how much suffering it caused Sami and doubts it was worth it. She wonders if he plans to take Sami back. "No," he says. When he admits that he kissed Carrie, she asks if he loves her. "You really are in trouble," she says. Once she gets into her jammies, she challenges him to truth or dare. He dares her to go to sleep. They both recognize how weird all of this is but she thanks him for sticking around. She feels stupid. He touches her hand and assures her that everything will be okay.

EJ is at Casa DiMera trying to write a speech about how he is man's best friend. Kate comes in, looks at it, and ask if Johnny wrote it. He wants his PR person back. Kate thinks a blow up doll could do Nicole's job. EJ feels lost without her. He mopes. She tells him to get over it. "DiMeras don't sulk," she says, telling him to concentrate on his career and children. Kate vaguely explains that she's working on something involving the children which will right past wrongs. He orders her to stop whatever it is she's up to and then walks off. Elvis heads over to Nicole's and walks into her room. He finds a shirtless Rafe standing by her bed. "You didn't like to keep your bed very empty for long Sweetheart!" EJ says. Nicole doesn't appreciate him breaking in and acting like a victim. "Once you're a whore, you're always a whore," EJ sneers. Rafe punches him the face. Elvis flicks his blood at Rafe and tells him he'll regret this. "Get yourself checked out mate. Believe me, you don't know where she's been," EJ quips before walking out. Nicole screams and throws a glass at the door.

Mel meets up with Abby at the coffee house. She starts congratulating her on coming clean until Abby stops her to explain that she didn't. Mel lectures her. Abby explains that Carrie left Austin for Rafe. Mel still think she should come clean so they can have a 'secret free' relationship. Abby swallows that. When she leaves, Daniel shows up. He chats to his daughter until Kate interrupts and starts sniping. Mel runs off. Kate quizzes Daniel about Billie. "You stay away from my daughter," she orders. He says she has no idea what she's talking about and suggests she see a witch doctor for her paranoia.

Gabi drops in on Chad at his place. She shows him their first magazine ad and says they will be famous. She gets excited about this and hugs him. He's not that thrilled about fame and fortune. She thinks that's because he was spoiled and tells him tales of how she has had to struggle to earn a living. Mel calls and plans a date with Chad tomorrow night. As they make plans for the Burger Barn, Gabi hides one of her earrings in the bedsheets.

Austin is drinking at the pub and chatting with Kayla. Jack arrives and sits down with him. Austin is uncomfortable. They begin discussing Austin's love life. He's nervous but Jack obviously doesn't know the Abby story. Jack explains that he's writing a book about his time in Afghanistan. When Austin mentions he has to write some articles, Jack offers to help. Later, Abby shows up. She's about to talk to Austin when she notices Jack is there. She asks her dad to leave them alone to discuss work. Kayla interrupts to see that she got a tip Bo might be recovering and asks one of them to lock up. Austin offers and rushes away to start getting ready for close.
