Oceans Of Men.
drops by the mansion and tells Brady that she wants to put one of
Madison's final plans into action. He's all for that. That makes her
happy. She wonders how they will destroy his step-sister. He knows
she's a 'barracuda' but hopes she's just planning to ruin Sami's
company. They toast to making Samantha pay for her bad choices. Over at
Sami's, Will refuses to talk to her about his love life. He lets it
slip that Adrienne said something upsetting. Sami plotzes. Will lists
his faults. "Even when I was little, I couldn't color between the
lines," he says. He's come to realize he's just like his mom and he
hates that. Will walks away. He bumps into Kate outside the square and
tells her he's a loser. She tells him anything can be fixed but he
doesn't think that's possible. He thinks it's time to carry on the
penchant for disaster that's in his DNA.
the hospital, Jenn confronts Daniel for being involved in Nicole's
paternity fraud. She tells him that he is Nic's latest victim. He won't
explain anything. Jenn can't understand why he would jeopardize his
career for Nicole. The doctor walks off. Brady finds her sobbing. She
says she's just overreacting to everything lately. It's ruining her
sense of compassion. Over at the Horton House, Nicole tries explaining
the 'complicated situation' with Jenn to Abby. Nic claims she wants to
protect 'saintly rock star' Jenn from the lies that are flowing. She
wants to get Abby on the same page with her about this. "I don't even
think we're in the same book," Abby says. Nic starts probing her about
Cam. She says she's been with 'oceans of men' and is happy to give
advice if she wants it. Abby walks away instead. Nicole calls Daniel
over. He tells her about his run-in with Jenn. Nic starts getting
paranoid but the doctor is sure that Jenn won't rat them out. His
feelings are hurt because Jenn is so disappointed in him. She worries
that he's starting to have second thoughts about keeping the secret.
He's not, but it's hard. After he leaves, she drops Jenn's portrait on
the floor and stomps on it.

phone. He checks his messages and learns Will cancelled the date.
Meanwhile, Adrienne runs into Sami in the square. Sami lashes out at
her. Kate arrives as Sami is tearing in and Adrienne is defending
herself. Kate piles on and orders Adrienne to apologize. That's not
going to happen. Adrienne's amazed Will isn't more screwed up with
women like them in his life. She's sure that Will will do something to
break her son's heart and storms off. Kate and Sami discuss Will and
then return to threatening each other. Sami goes home and tells her son
he can still learn to colour between the lines. Meanwhile, Mel returns
to Caffeinated. Abby joins her and they yap about dresses. Cam walks
in. Mel pushes her friend to tell her about the break-up.
stands outside the pub spying on Gabi and Nick. He starts hallucinating
that they are discussing Mel. When Nick heads to the kitchen, Chad
storms in and demands to know what they were talking about. Gabi says
it was nothing and he starts manhandling her. Nick tells him to let her
go. Chad doesn't appreciate that. Caroline gets between them. She tells
Chad to steer clear and points at the door. He slinks out, telling Gabi
to watch her step. Caroline makes a call to a supplier, complaining
that she didn't receive an order when, in fact, she did. She then turns
to interrogate Nick about what happened earlier and orders him to look
away the next time Chad comes in. She reminds him he's on parole and
has to be careful. Later, Gabi thanks Nick for taking the blame and
slips a few bucks in his pocket to help pay for all the dishes he's
been breaking. Meanwhile, Chad goes home and continues getting
paranoid. When Mel gets home, he desperately asks her if she loves him.

When Did You Become So Boring?
joins Bo at the pub. They discuss what he can do if he leaves the SPD.
He doesn't have any ideas. "When did you become so boring?" she asks.
She's been reading "Sailing Life" and suggests that changing careers to
do something you want will help you live longer. Theo and Abe arrive.
Theo runs over to see Nick but Abe leads him away. Abe tells Bo that
losing him at the department will be a huge loss. He and the kid leave.

was on the bottom of the list. She encourages him to follow his dreams.

and asks what's on her mind. She'd rather talk about him. He says he's
just 'lame'. They sit down and he recaps the fight, insisting it wasn't
over Sami. She's skeptical and suggests that getting back with Sami
could be good. He feels her forehead. She heads back to the pub and
bumps into Nick. They have a little small talk and he leaves.
Mel gets home, Chad announces they need to leave town forever. "You
serious?" she asks. She thinks he's lying to her about something, sure
this is really about Nick. He wants to protect her. After he gives her
a scarf, he gets a text to meet Sonny and heads out. Over at the
mansion, Brady tells Mel the wedding is in two weeks. Victor walks in
to hear this and thinks Mel has lost her mind. Maggie says they can't
interfere but her husband guesses she thinks this is daft too. He
threatens to make a call to prevent Mel 'marrying the twit'. Maggie
takes his phone away. "She's not pregnant is she?" Victor asks. Brady
and Maggie guess Chad is desperate because of Nick. Brady decides to
have a talk with him. He meets him at Caffeinated after summoning Chad
with Sonny's phone. Chad starts spouting off about Madison until Brady
grabs him and makes him stop. Brady tells him he's obviously under a
lot of pressure and probably shouldn't be getting married right now.
drops by Sami's and snipes about the men fighting over her. He makes it
clear that he doesn't want her and accuses her of being scared to be
alone. "Your abandonment issues are beyond legendary sweetheart," he
lectures, telling her she is 'zilch' to him and he's sick of her
'shenanigans'. They bicker about the games she plays and then he walks
out. Sami plods off and bumps into Kate in the square. Kate lets her
know that CW is in the middle of an overseas scandal because of all of
its slave labor. Sami cringes and says she has no idea what she's
talking about. Rafe randomly appears and warns Kate that this could
'bite her in the butt'. Kate strolls away and calls her minions to stop
spreading malicious gossip about the competition. Sami thanks Rafe for
being so fantastic. She wonders why he keeps going out of his way for
her. Rafe admits he never thought he could get past what happened,
but... She tells him how mad she still is at herself. Sami suggests
they talk some more. Meanwhile, Kate goes to see Victor and asks him
how they can crush Sami. She guesses he has other things on his mind
and prods him to tell her about his feelings.

right reasons. Mel is tired of defending herself. She sulks. Maggie
doesn't understand the rush. Mel has a fit and announces she needs to
go to her dress fitting. Her grandma agrees to support her because she
believes in how smart she is. Maggie goes home and finds Kate talking
to Victor about the 'goody two-shoes' he married. The redhead threatens
to use her shoes to kick her behind. Kate leaves. Meanwhile, Mel tracks
down Nick outside of the square. "We need to talk," she says.

Trite And True.
the square, Rafe admits that he might be getting past what Sami did to
him. She thinks they should have dinner and figure things out. That's
more than he can give. "I know I can be bitchy sometimes," she says.
"Sometimes?" he asks. She says that things have changed between them
since he arrested her. Sami keeps talking about how they need to talk.
Eventually, he wanders away but stops to stare back at her. He returns
and agrees to dinner. Meanwhile, Billie randomly appears to bump into
EJ in the square. She lectures him for fighting Rafe over Sami. Billie
says that most people evolve as the decades go by, but Sami is still a
lonely little girl. EJ strolls around and bumps into Rafe. They lock
horns about Sami again. EJ gets in some jabs about Nicole. Rafe calls
and reserves a table for he and Sami. Elvis looks like he wet himself.
the Horton house, Nicole is babbling to her baby about how amazing he
is. EJ strolls in and says it's his baby as he puts his hand around her
throat. Nic wakes up from this nightmare and babbles to her belly as
she paces. She folds baby clothes and yacks. As she looks at a photo of
Jenn, she decides that a picture is worth a thousand words. After
digging up photos of Rafe, she takes photos of herself in bed and then
photoshops him in. She heads to Sami's and asks her to hold onto some
paperwork she was trying to leave at EJ's. She 'accidentally' spills
her purse so Sami has to pick up the contents. The photo of Rafe is on
top. "What the hell is this?" blurts Sami as she finds it.

him if he's changed. Apologies go back and forth. He assures her that
he's determined to be a new man. Mel babbles about how everyone thinks
he already is. They finally shake hands and wish each other the best.

and Maggie meet the dressmaker.
calls Will to ask him why he cancelled. Will doesn't pick up. He's at
the pub with Marlena. She notices he's tense and gives him a pep talk.
He thinks he's not good enough for the boy he likes. The shrink gives
him another pep talk and tells him he can't be defined by his parents.
"This might sound trite, but that's because it's true. If you don't
love yourself, someone else can't," says the doctor. She advises him to
call his crush. He's reluctant. Sonny rushes in and asks him to talk.
Grannie makes herself scarce. The lads head outside. Sonny knows why he
backed out of their date and asks Will to let him be the judge of who
is good enough for him. They kiss.
