A Miserable Human Being.

At the court house, Kayla meets with Justin and EJ. She's convinced that another autopsy would exonerate Sami. Meanwhile, Marge pays Sami a visit in her jail cell. Sami calls for a guard but there isn't one around. Marge pulls out a picture of little Timmy and tells Samanther that he sobs all night. She yells at her for hating Joe. Sami can't explain anything. Later, EJ arrives as Sami sobs. She tells him about Marge's visit. He informs her that the hearing has been delayed but they are cautiously optimistic. Elvis tries comforting her. Justin finally calls and explains they got a court order to exhume the body. Sami is sure this means her nightmare is over, but Marge corners Justin and declares that they will never exhume her husband's corpse.

Daniel and Eric are shocked when they arrive at Ventura's office and he explains that the woman hiding in his bathroom just destroyed all the evidence he collected. Daniel tries to talk Kristen, disguised as Susan, out of the bathroom. She shoves a note under the door that reads she's too embarrassed to come out. Eric tries getting her to open up. She knocks over some toilet paper so the men guess she's in danger. The three of them manage to barge in. She's gone out the window. Daniel assumes that the mystery woman was sabotaging them. The priest remembers meeting a woman at the hotel. Ventura thinks this was just an accident and declares that the evidence has been totally loss.

In his hospital bed, Rafe recalls Marge's words about Sami until Nicole interrupts. She catches him up on her life. When he mentions Eric, she gets defensive. Later, she meets with Daniel at the mansion and they discuss their concerns for Eric. The topic turns to JJ. She urges him not to let the kid get between him and Jenn. She explains that she caught him with something and it was 'nothing good'. When she urges him to go back to Jenn, he says he can't.

Jenn and Brady are at the Horton house. She tells him to be wise about getting back with Kristen. Over in the park, JJ probes Theresa about the man she's interested in and then pretends he doesn't care. He suggests she call her new boyfriend the next time she needs blow. She heads back to the office. Jenn is there and lectures her for not going to HR. She calls Anne in. Theresa starts to panic and accuses Jenn of being a sexually frustrated, uptight priss. Anne arrives and eavesdrops for awhile before interrupting. Jenn stomps out. Theresa says Jenn's a 'miserable human being' and Anne agrees. After seeing her in action, Anne has decided that Theresa is exactly the kind of assistant Jenn needs. Down the hall, Jenn visits Rafe. He reminds her of how great Daniel is and she thanks him for the reminder. Meanwhile, JJ heads back to school and meets with Rory. He's decided that Theresa isn't his type. He spots Bev and she asks him to hang out. Cole looks on angrily. Cole lays into JJ, gets territorial about Bev and warns that JJ is screwing with the wrong guy. Bev and JJ wander off. She invites him to the "Twilight" marathon in her basement. He'd rather find a party. Theresa calls and asks him to hang out with her later. Across town, Jenn shows up at the mansion and throws herself into the Daniel's arms.

Kristen heads back to Casa DiMera. Brady shows up and she claims she is just jittery from coffee. He thinks she's hiding something and wonders if she is seeing someone else. "You are the only man that I've thought of," she insists. He's worried that she's not wearing her bracelet anymore. She realizes she must have lost it at the rectory. After she promises to find it, she kisses him and sends him off. "No one will ever know that I defrocked your priest, okay? But why does this have to be so damn complicated?" she asks God. When she heads to the rectory and grabs her bracelet off the floor, Eric spots her.


August 6, 2013

Theresa calls JJ and tries to tempt him out. He's reluctant. When he hangs up, he makes an excuse to Bev and they arrange to meet up later. He kisses her cheek. Cole grimaces in the background. Meanwhile, Nick is outside of the square. A potential job interview calls to cancel. He wanders through the square and bumps into Theresa. She knocks over his papers and asks if he's a stockbroker. He dabbles. She lays it on thick and offers to buy him coffee. Nick has to go off to make a call. JJ shows up and tells her she's an idiot if she's trying to snag Nick. He fills her in on some of Fallon's past. She likes 'edgy' men and accuses JJ of being jealous. JJ laughs when he realizes she thinks his cousin in rich. He decides she's no fun and asks her not to call him again. After he heads off, Nick returns. Theresa freaks out at him when he admits he's unemployed. "If there's one thing I can't stand, poodle, it's dishonest people!" she bleeps as she blusters off.

Jenn and Daniel make out in the doorway of the mansion. He pulls away for some air and they jog off to his apartment to hit the sheets.

When she gets to work, Maxine gives her some messages. Jenn won a PR award. They hug and Jenn runs off. She finds her son waiting in her office. He notices she's in a good mood and asks if there is something she wants to share.

At the courthouse, Marge informs Justin that he won't be exhuming her husband's body. The lawyer explains that no one thought the shot from Sami could kill Joe. They still don't know the whole picture. Marge points out that her husband was cremated to save money. She says his client can kiss her life goodbye. Down in the cells, EJ promises Sami that she will be home soon. Johnny calls and speaks to his mom about what he's been doing lately. She sobs through the small talk. After that, she and Elvis discuss their wedding plans and she promises that this will be her last. Justin calls with the bad news. Sami has a fit. "What do we do now?" she asks.

Nicole runs into Brady at the pub. She offers a truce on Kristen if he will keep Eric safe. He assumes there is more to what she's saying. Nic admits that Eric has caught on to her being in love with him. She worries about how Father Matt keeps prodding her to head to the confessional. "Just tell him... tell him how you feel," Brady suggests. She thinks that would ruin everything. "This is the least bad that I've ever been," she says. Brady doubts that trying to protect Eric by lying to him when he already knows the truth will work out. Meanwhile, Eric walks into his office and finds Kristen crawling on the floor for her bracelet. He guesses there is something she's not telling him. She claims she is just there to tell Nicole that her affair with Brady is now over because he's all hers again.

They wonder why Jenn didn't tell her they are back together. After he runs into JJ, and Deveraux says nothing, Daniel guesses he doesn't know either.

At the rectory, Eric asks Nicole if she is sleeping with his brother. "It was short term," she admits. Nic tries to explain.
