surprises in him. "Life would be dull without surprises," she says. The

mine," says Maggie. Brady doesn't know how Nic can survive this. Maggie

flabbergasted. Elvis rails. Rafe says he would do it again. After EJ
walks out, Rafe tells Sami how much he hated lying but he needed to
protect Nic from Elvis. "I didn't realize any damsel would do," she
snipes. He reminds her they weren't even a couple when this started.

but he can't get any. He goes in to see Nicole. She tells him she did
