the baby. She offers to help keep the DiMera away and assures him she
will never forgive EJ. Sami rambles about how she can help. Rafe
doesn't want to discuss this. She keeps talking and suggests that she
hook up with EJ so she can be like a spy for Rafe. "I want this to work
for us," she says. He's not coming clean and it's getting awkward. He
promises they can have a fresh start. They suck face and plan a picnic.

always happening to me? It's so unfair!" she cries and realizes she has
nowhere to go. After smashing things around, she spots a scalpel and
picks it up. She fantasizes about Daniel coming in and telling her he's
back with Jenn. She snaps out of it as a nurse arrives, mistaking her
for a different patient and babbles. Meanwhile, Jenn tries asking Dan
about Nic. He grunts and gets cold. "Unbelievable!" she huffs, storming

he can change the way he feels. His mom says it will just take time.
She's sure his son will be patient. He thanks her for her great advice
and putters off. Later, EJ mopes in. She assumes he's suffering from
Sami stress. Elvis tells her he spoke to Stefano and makes a point of
telling her that his father had no interest in her. She wonders if

wants this to remain between the three of them. They group hug.
Caroline says she can only play the cards she's been dealt.
