set-up. "Why are you being such a bitch?" Nic asks. She admits that she
wanted her to see it as revenge and babbles about 'baby boy Hernandez.'
Sami goes to the pub to meet her mom and excitedly tells her that she
thinks Rafe is coming around. She tells her Marlena about what just
happened with Nicole. She gags about having to share parenting duties

sure she could be a great role model for the child.

she remarks. He says she just threw him under the bus. "C'mon!" he
groans, explaining he had a date with Sami tonight. Nic asks if it's
serious. He shrugs. She wishes him good luck and he walks out. He heads

reality, she opens up, dressed in glitter with her tiny pink purse.

herself in a blanket so he won't see the dress. He tells her how

about Nicole and her photo scheme. Meanwhile, Maggie joins Daniel at

acting too desperate. Maggie explains that Mel and Nick had a
rapprochement and she feels elated about it. The doctor thinks that's

Sami stroll in. The cop takes the doctor aside for a second and asks

didn't think I'd need cab fare," she says. She probes about Nic and
acts glad to hear she's fine. He assures her that he is not dating
Nicole. She's sure he'll be a great dad. As she babbles about it, he
stops her. When he tries to explain the truth, she stops him to babble
some more. She says EJ is out of the picture now because the way Rafe

it's not funny. She's furious and kicks her out. "You okay?" Chad asks.
She guesses he knew all about this. He admits it and makes excuses. She
doesn't like being treated like a wounded bird. When she sees his
bloody hand, she starts crying. He says he was too scared for her and
wanted to protect her. She thinks he sounds like a stalker. She
declares that the wedding is a no go.

back off and guesses Chad must have attacked him. Maggie angrily storms
off. Nick tells Gabi she's a good person. He asks her what happened at

while EJ sits in a dark office thinking about them. He gets a call
about his finances and barks some orders. He heads over to Sami's and
interrogates her about her date with the other man. "If it's children
first, job second, what does that make Rafe? A child or a job?" he
asks. She admits something happened with Rafe. Sami claims she's just
trying to do the right thing. He gets annoyed when she says Rafe is
still the man she loves. EJ insists he's not and reminds her that Rafe
knocked up Nicole. They bicker and he says men always come back to her
like moths to a flame, but he likes the heat. He starts smelling her
ears and then kisses her head before leaving. He goes back to his

square and tells her about his chat with his mom. Hope just wants him
to be happy and urges him to dream big. They make out.

up. The doctor lectures him. Chad justifies himself but Daniel thinks
he sounds 'unbalanced.' He informs Chad that Mel has postponed the

her in. She decides to confess everything to him. "That was pretty
bad," he says.

out. Chad arrives to admit he messed up. He thinks they still have a
chance. She gulps and says she's going to visit her mom. He thinks

is. Mel won't be sending the cops after her because she doesn't care
