Does A Body Good.
Sonny's place, he and Will take off their Groucho mustaches and then
peel off their clothes before leaping onto the bed. Lucas comes to the
door, barking at them to open up. The lads pull on their clothes. Lucas
is concerned to see his son's shirt unbuttoned. He tells him it's time
to say goodbye to Caroline right now. Flustered Will babbles about the
boxes. Lucas offers to help Sonny take care of them and sends his son
off. The men bicker. Lucas thought they were supposed to be taking it
slow. "I think you're not ready for this," Sonny suggests. Lucas talks
about how his son never does anything 'head first'. He's always
cautious and Lucas won't let anyone ruin their relationship. Sonny
shows him the door.
At the pub, Caroline informs Nick and Gabi that she's leaving for
California so they'll have to manage without her. Over at Rafe's place,
he recalls some of Sami's ranting about grief sex and her inability to
forgive him. His sister calls and tells him about Ma Brady. He hurries
over to the pub to tell her that she will be in his prayers. Caroline
speaks to him about Sami. She's sure they still love each other and
that's all that should matter. Later, Will shows up to say goodbye to
his great-grandmother. She tells him to count his blessings. "Where
there's faith, there's hope," she muses. "You're the boss," he says.
She's happy to see him so happy looking. "Does a body good. Keep it
up," she says. When she putters away, Nick and Gabi offer him some
supportive words. Will runs off. Billie strolls in and hands Nick a
letter. It's a job offer from Kate. After she heads out, he reads it
and whistles. He's not sure he should take it though. Gabi asks him
about the weird vibe Billie gave him. He assures her she doesn't need
to be jealous. Outside, Lucas runs into Billie and moans about what he
just walked in on. He's suddenly sure that Sonny is using Will.
Meanwhile, Sonny meets Will in the square and they chat about Caroline
and they hold hands.
In the square, Marlena rails at John for keeping secrets from her. Sami
creeps up. She tells her mom about Caroline. Marlena tells her to take
care of herself. Sami mopes over to the couch and has flashbacks of
Rafe. He suddenly appears and tells her how much everyone will miss her
grandma. She was the only stable person around. As she worries, he
tries comforting her. When he says that he's never given up on her, she
becomes upset. He starts apologizing. She demands to know how he can
hurt her so much. "I love you," he says.
Bo drops some of Ciara's stuff off at the mansion. He informs Victor
and Maggie that he's going to California with Caroline so Ciara will
need to spend more time with them. They discuss Ma Brady and Bo says
this treatment should be good. "You're going to be her anchor in a
strange place," says Maggie. Bo talks about finally being able to make
up for being a crummy son. He explains that all of his siblings are too
busy so he's taking it on his shoulders. He heads over to Caffeinated
to get some coffee. Billie bumps into him and says Chelsea wanted to be
there to say goodbye. He assures her his Ma will be coming home one
day. She tells him to take care of himself. John and Marlena show up to
say goodbye. John says he knows what it's like to have a blank mind.
When the shrink steps away, John tells Bo he understands why he's been
so restless lately. He's sure that he's out to get Stefano. Bo admits
it, but his Ma comes first for the moment. After he goes, John tells
Marlena that he believes in miracles. They can talk about Kristen later.

Pip Pip Old Man.
drops by Jenn's and informs her that all of the charges have been
dropped. Meanwhile, the charity shop guy drops by Daniel's to pick up a
box of baby clothes. After he hands them off, Jenn calls. He doesn't
pick up. Over at the hospital, Nicole can't wait until she and Daniel
get out of town. He's looking forward to watching her work on her tan.
Jenn barges in and yelps that Nic is a liar. The baby was already dead.
Nic gasps and wakes up from this nightmare. Maxine comes in to check on
her. She tells Nic that dropping the charges is a good sign that she's
leaving the bitterness behind. As she leaves, Dan bursts in with the
tickets for Hawaii. Maxine announces there is a hold-up with the
paperwork so they are stuck there. She putters off to the nurses'
station and rants at one of her underlings for swiping the twosie from
the lost and found. The nurse curses and leaves it on the counter. Rafe
shows up as Daniel runs off to take down the baby clothes receipt that
was left on his door. The cop goes in to see Nic. She informs him that
she and the doctor are going away. Plus, she's not pressing charges so
there will be no trial. Rafe tells her to take care of herself and
Jenn corners Daniel in his hallway. When they go into his place, she
finds the tickets to Hawaii and plotzes. "You bought my freedom with
your life!" she blurts. He insists that this is what he wants. "This is
stupid!" she complains. The doctor tells her to think of herself and
her children. "I want to protect her because I love you!" he bellows.
At the pub, Roman and Bo discuss snowblowers. Roman assures him he'll
look after Hope and Ciara. Caroline and Kay start teasing them for
showing emotions. Ma takes Roman outside for pictures and Kay orders
her brother to be blunt with her about what happens when he gets to
California. Ciara arrives with a picture she drew of everyone. They
have their names written next to them so her grandma can remember who
they are. "I'll love you even if I call you Claire or something,"
Caroline says. Later, Bo asks Hope if she's okay with him going. She
tells him how brave he is and then hands him some CDs. One is full of
family pictures and the other is full of dirt on the DiMeras. "You're
the best partner I ever had," he says. They pinky swear to be partners
for life. Fancy Face cries. He assures her he'll be back before she
knows it. They kiss and he goes.
Marlena walks into Caffeinated and notices her shrink, Dr. Patel, is
there. She arranges an appointment. As soon as Marlena steps aside,
Kristen arrives to meet Patel. Marlena has a fit. Her shrink isn't
impressed. Kristen insists on her innocence. "Maybe you should shoot me
your calendar so I know where not to be," Kristen tells Marlena. She
walks out. Patel has never seen Marlena so upset. "You've never seen me
with someone who tried to kill me before," the shrink tells her shrink.
In the square, Sami rips into Rafe again for hurting her. He reiterates
that he loves her. EJ interrupts. The men snipe at each other. Elvis
explains to Samanther that he's not pressing charges. He says he will
be making sure that Jenn sees justice. Rafe bickers with him about
that. After EJ leaves, Sami tells Rafe that he's acting stupid and
mean. He's sure that Elvis is up to something. They bicker and she
tells him to go to Hell. "Talk about stupid," he groans, walking away.
EJ calls and says he didn't want to make things worse. She rushes over
to him to asks if she is selfish. He says no. She thinks her family
would disagree. He tells her not to be so hard on herself. After she
leaves, Kristen comes out of the bushes to tease him. "Pip pip old
man," she says, urging him to let her help in his Sami seduction plan.

drinks and make a vague toast. She promises to win him over. He's not
sure what's in it for her. She wants to be his life coach. They both
perpetually screw up their lives for love, so she thinks she can help
make things better. The topic turns to her and she assures him she's
done with John. "The best way to get over an obsession is to make it a
reality," she tells him. They discuss their father. She assures him
Stefano wants to make amends. Elvis isn't interested. Kristen offers to
help him with Sami if he'll reach out to their father. It's all about
family and Stefano will always be part of their fantasy lives. He gets
a call, fumes and storms off. She stomps her feet.
Nicole spills her purse at the hospital. As she cleans it up, ominous
music plays as the twosie lurks on the counter above. Brady shows up.
She explains that she's leaving town. This place makes her miserable.
He suggests she's running away. Nic tells him there will be no trial.
"Who got to you?" he asks. She makes excuses. He assumes there's more
going on. Nic explains that she and Daniel are headed for Hawaii. Brady
doesn't think much of that. Cam pops by to sign her out and wish her
Jenn shows up at Daniel's to rant at him for ruining his life. He
blurts out that he still loves her and wants to protect her. "You love
me?" she asks. She thinks he's crazy. "Yeah," he groans. He defends his
choice to go away and insists that he is sick of watching EJ destroy
people's lives. She feels like she's losing him and his friendship.
"We've never been friends," he points out. He's sure she'll find love
some day with a man who can find her jokes funny. "He will be one lucky
man," he says, showing her the door. Brady brings Nicole by. She goes
in to take a shower. Brady questions the doctor, who assures him that
time will take care of everything. Later, Nicole spots a baby related

key chain and explains they are adopting. She decides this sounds good.

nurse but he's leaving town. She doesn't understand. Later, two nurses
are arguing over the twosie in front of Daniel. He furrows his brow.
Meanwhile, Jenn goes to see Maggie. "You're my only hope!" Jenn
whimpers. She fills her in. Maggie doesn't think her son will be happy
with Nicole. She agrees to try and stop him.
At Caffeinated, Marlena tells Sami to quit her job with Kristen. "No
one gets to tell me what to do," Sami sulks. Her mom warns her that
Kristen is playing games. "Goodie," says Sami. Marlena tells her what's
been happening. "Ohhh man! She's trying to make me look paranoid," says
the shrink. Sami gets creeped out. John shows up and tells her to stay
away from Kristen. Sami declares that she can take on 'any crazy
bitch'. John squints and smokes an imaginary cigar. "Passive-aggression
is still aggression," Marlena rants. She complains about the scene with
the kid on the bike. Brady wanders in. Sami escapes as John and Marlena
bicker. The shrink spots Brady and vents to him. He promises to back up
his dad if he needs it. She stomps off. John chases after her. She

drive me crazy!" she rails. He says that will never happen. Meanwhile,

Your Own Line Of Crap.
Kristen slips into her bathroom, Brady slips through her door. She
comes out, dripping wet and he's waiting. "Lunch has arrived," she
tells him. He wants her to stop playing games with his family. She asks
him if he has a sandwich for her before she calls the cops. She makes
him wait while she gets dressed and then makes small talk. He lists her
failures. "I made mistakes," she says, insisting she has changed. When
he accuses her of being manipulative and cheap, she slaps him. "I think
you believe your own line of crap... that is scary," he says, walking
out. She smiles to herself. Brady meets with his dad at the pub and
complains about Kristen running around with her 'new software'. John
explains that Kristen was okay once but her father changed her. John
assures him that Kristen is no big deal and leaves.

against Jenn dropped. They yell at each other. She tells him to read
the police report. He starts manhandling her and blinking. Backing her
into a corner, he keeps interrogating her. She says Jenn couldn't kill
the baby. EJ says the amnesty he promised is over now because she won't
come clean. He strides out and calls his sister for a meeting. Kristen
meets him in his office and urges him to be careful after he tells her
the situation. She advises him to think before acting. He's sure the
'holistic hippy' doctor convinced Nic to change her story, but there
must be something else... She advises him to watch the doctor closely.
At the mansion, Jenn begs Maggie to talk Daniel out of leaving. Jenn
heads home. Her daughter comes in and notices Jenn is not 'walking on
air'. Jenn explains that she can't let Daniel sacrifice himself for
her. Over at the hospital, Daniel notices the nurses fighting over the
twosie. He almost takes it away from them when his mother calls and
asks to speak to him in person. The doctor runs off. When he gets to
the mansion, the sense of dread kicks in and he guesses this is about
Jenn. He gets snarky with his mom. She rails about how Nic is not a
good person. He says he isn't either. She doesn't buy that. She used to
think he was a 'predatory jerk' but now she thinks he's 'a dear'.
Maggie turns on the water works. "We're afraid you're going to lose
yourself," she says. He claims this is what he has to do and walks out.

tonight. Two cops arrive and arrest him. That was a fantasy of
Nicole's. In reality, Daniel is leaving the mansion and bumps into
Jenn. He guesses she was in cahoots with his mom and orders her to stay
out of his life. After he storms off, Maggie tells Jenn there's no more
to do. Jenn has an idea. Meanwhile, Daniel arrives at home and agrees
with Nic that they need to leave immediately.
Nick and Gabi are with Sonny and Will in the square. The lads think
they should go on a double date to the indie fest. Nick seems hesitant.
The lads wander off. Gabi asks him what the deal is. He sighs. She has
a problem with prejudice and storms off. Gabi goes to her room and hugs
her pillow until Nick arrives to explain himself. She feels like she
doesn't know him. He explains that he thinks that the way the lads live
is wrong because it's a choice and not a good one. They discuss what
the church says and he tells her she makes him think he can be the man
he's always wanted to be. They make out. Meanwhile, Will and Sonny are
at Caffeinated. Sonny thinks they should discuss the Lucas situation
but he gets a business call. Billie magically appears. She knows her
nephew has a problem and wants to help. Sonny returns and she wanders
off. Will asks his boyfriend what happened with Lucas. Sonny fills him
in. Will goes to meet his father outside the square. He refuses to let
him screw up his happiness. Lucas says he should have been available to
his family when he called instead of 'hooking up' with Sonny.

asks him to be careful with his heart. He understands and gives her a
peck on the cheek, assuring her he won't take Will for granted.
Meanwhile, outside the square, Lucas lectures Will for hooking up with
Sonny instead of being available to his family. Lucas insists this
isn't about him and how he feels about 'this stuff'. Will accuses him
of being nauseated by his sexuality. Lucas tells him to wake up and
claims that Sonny is just using him for sex. "Dudley Do Right?"
skeptical Will asks. Lucas thinks Sonny was doing the gay
'gallivanting' all over Europe. It wasn't just Cathedrals he was
getting into. "Have you asked him how many boyfriends he's had?" Lucas
probes. Will walks off. He heads straight for Sonny's and pulls him
into a kiss. Sonny pushes him off and assumes Lucas must have upset
him. Will asks if he's the first guy he's brought there. "You're not,"
Sonny admits. He's offended and tells him to go. He would tell him
about his sex life, but it's really Lucas who is asking. He declares
that this has all been a mistake and kicks him out. Will mopes away.
In her room, Gabi makes out with Nick. They pull off their clothes and
have sex. She's awkward. He thinks she's amazing and wishes he'd met
her years ago. He doesn't know how he could be so lucky. She thinks
that he's a gift. The roll around some more.

that she's moving to Hawaii. Sami pays her condolences. She knows how
hard it is to lose a child. Nicole asks her how much pull she has with
EJ. She unloads about Jenn and how Elvis wants revenge. Nic pleads for
her help keeping him away. She reminds Sami of how much she hates her
and suggests that this is the best way to get her out of her life for
good. Sami still isn't willing to commit to helping her out. Meanwhile,
Victor corners Daniel at the hospital to see if he can talk him out of
leaving. The doctor hates to hurt his mom but he has to go. He promises
that he will always be part of his life. They hug. Later, Maxine tells
him his necklace has been found. They go down to the lost and found to
get it. He spots the familiar twosie and sees that it was left in exam

in town. She recaps the last week and Nic's deceptiveness. "She
wouldn't spit toothpaste out of her mouth if she thought there was
something in it for her," Jenn asserts. Hope thinks she's being a

help. Hope gets ice cream.
