I Owe You Nothing.

Theo brings his mom a rock and hopes they can go camping with Cam this summer. She hugs him and looks pensive. When she gets her brother alone, she asks if he will continue to be part of her son's life after she is gone. He assures her he will. She's happy because Theo needs some positive role models from her side of the family. They hug. Celeste shows up and suggests that they make videos for Theo. Her daughter likes that idea and starts right away, looking into the camera and telling her son how much she loves him. She breaks into tears and has to stop. Later, her son runs down and gives her a card. She uses it as the cover for the DVD she made.

In the square, Billie goads EJ about Stefano betraying him to help John. EJ scratches his ear and claims he doesn't believe it. She keeps badgering and explains about the IOU to Alice until he asks her why she's so determined to drive a wedge between him and his dad. Over at Casa DiMera, Agent Harmon assures Stefano that they have the edge. Harmon makes excuses about the explosion and Stefano barks at him to get the damn coin. Later, the mayor arrives. Stefano is sarcastic. EJ confronts him about the IOU and demands an explanation. "I owe you nothing," Stefano says. He explains anyway, admitting that he let John slip away because of a debt he accrued for EJ. Elvis assumes that must be why he's so angry. He reminds him of all that he has taught him about being ruthless and warns that he will use that against him. "You don't want me as an enemy. Why don't we just declare peace?" Stefano suggests. It's not that easy for EJ. He won't let the empire slip away and mocks him for placing himself in a prison of his own making. Elvis repeats that it doesn't have to be this way and then calls him a 'soulless bastard'.

At the station, Bo, Hope and Shane discuss how to use their edge on Stefano. Hope decides to have another crack at decrypting the coin. She babbles about jewelry. Shane makes some calls. Billie shows up and they happily chat about how EJ and Stefano must be tearing each other apart by now. Shane gets a tip about the jewelry and learns that it must be from a jeweller in Italy. Bo and Hope think they should be sent over to track down the lead. Shane and Billie leave. Bo and Hope make out. Meanwhile, Agent Harmon shows up in the office and starts looking for the coin. Hope can hear him at the door. The couple hides as Harmon comes in looking for the coin.

At the safe house, Rafe and Carrie are furiously kissing in her room. Austin arrives with Roman. They shut the door loudly so the couple can hear them. Rafe runs down to act casual. Austin is terse and goes to look for his wife. Roman starts grilling Rafe, who aggressively swallows his coffee and attempts to act aloof. Roman reminds him that he and Carrie and are still married to other people. Rafe justifies himself. "Just because you love each other doesn't mean you should be together," Roman tells him. He lectures him about the trouble being with Carrie would cause. Meanwhile, Carrie acts surprised to see her husband. He sucks on her face until she leaps away and stutters. He hates being stuck on an emotional roller coaster and wishes her could take her home. "I'm counting the minutes until the insanity is over-with," he declares. When he tries to kiss her again, she pushes him away. He assumes she wants to have sex so he locks the door. She corrects his assumption and explains that facing death made her reflect on her life. She's about to explain what she came up with, but he stops her and whips out the scrapbook. He flips through the pages and talks about their good hair days. Roman interrupts to say time is up. Austin tells his wife to remember how good they are together and promises her a lifetime of happy memories. After he leaves with Roman, Carrie admits to Rafe that she couldn't end things with her husband. He tells her not to beat herself up. She's starting to have doubts.

I'm Gay!

"I"m not only your grandma, now I'm your boss!" she declares. She randomly bought the spa last week when she was looking for something to invest in. They talk about how Victor is coping with losing Bo. Maggie reminds Mel that she needs to spend more time with her and says she wants to get to know Chad. They sit around and he assures her he will never be like Stefano. Since he isn't getting much modeling work, she asks him to join an ad campaign for the spa. Gabi walks by and eavesdrops on this. When Mel takes Maggie away to tour the spa, Gabi comes out and tells Chad that a guy was following her. He gets protective. She claims she's embarrassed by having to ask for help. Mel returns. She wants to call the police. Gabi stops her, claiming that Will will get EJ to arrange protection.

John paces around the safe house going crazy. Marlena makes him sit down. He tries taking his stress out on a pillow as they recap the situation. Shane shows up and assures them that Harmon won't run into Bo and Hope at ISA HQ. At that moment, Harmon is at ISA HQ searching for the coin as Bo and Hope cower in the background. He randomly pulls out his gun, then changes his mind and opens the safe, finding the coin. A cell phone starts ringing. It's Shane. He's shocked to hear Harmon on the other end when he was expecting Bo and claims that he just lost his phone. The agent shrugs and leaves with the coin. Bo and Hope head back to the safe house. "Bloody hell!" Shane curses as he learns what happened. They don't understand how they got out-manoeuvred. Shane makes calls to complain. He gets a call about how a big arms dealer named Vladimir Nevsky is headed to town. They strategize. "I don't even know what we're talking about and I already hate it," Marlena says. She worries John is planning to kill Stefano. Meanwhile, Harmon shows up at Casa DiMera. Stefano is grumpy. The agent hands him the coin. "At last," Stefano sighs. He examines it. Harmon gets a call from Shane, who feeds him misinformation about Nevsky. Stefano asks him to track the dealer.

He's about to explain about his dad when Kate and Ian walk in. They trade barbs and then condolences before discussing their meeting with Serge. Madi and Kate go off to get some papers. Brady runs off for a shower and Ian dumps some drugs in his protein drink. Later, Brady drinks it down and jogs off. He bumps into Nicole and is speaking erratically. She wonders if he's baked. He tells her about his meeting. She's not sure he should be going. Once she gets him to sit down, she runs into the pub to drag Madi away from the meeting. Brady arrives before she can. Sniffing and dribbling, Brady rambles and ruins things until Madi asks Nic to take him away. She drags him outside. Serge declares that Brady is a liability and he can't support them while he's around. Madi runs out and asks Brady what's wrong with him. She says that was not acceptable. Ian strolls by and Madi leads him away.

At the safe house, Bo, Hope and John fill Rafe in on their plan to corner Stefano making an arms deal with Nesky. They want to go undercover to force Stefano to reveal himself. Shane calls to say that Nevsky won't meet them. John and Bo make some calls and pull some strings. They go to meet Nevsky at the docks.

John offers him a briefcase of cash. Nevsky gets a text and has his goons pull their guns. "I know who you all are and exactly what you are doing her!" the dealer declares.

At Sami's, Will explains to his parents that he's gay. Lucas nods. Sami doesn't understand and goes into denial. Lucas defends their son and insists he's not just 'confused' and trying to annoy her.

He admits that he's disappointed for him because he knows how hard it must be. Will tells him how hard he's tried to be straight but he's finally come around to who he is. Lucas is happy about that but still worries. Will admits he thought he had feelings for Mia and Gabi because he was desperate not to be gay. His father asks him about Sonny and if they are together. Two gay guys don't make a couple, Will explains. Lucas admits this is not what he expected for him. Will has come around to being okay with being gay and wonders if his dad feels the same.

EJ's known that he's gay for quite some time. He's amazed she never figured it out. She feels like the world's worst mother. "Your son is very good at keeping secrets because he takes after his mother," he says. She thinks it's her fault that he's gay. Elvis thinks she's being absurd. "Darling, if poor mothering made children gay, all of Kate's children would be waving rainbow flags," he says. She insists that she isn't homophobic, just in shock and points out she also found out Will shot someone today. Elvis says this isn't about her but about her son. He advises her to actually listen to him.
