runs into Rafe outside of Caffeinated. He tries to run away. She pulls
out a gun and shoots him. This is all a dream of his. His machine beeps
up a storm. Kayla, Gabi and Kate rush into his hospital room. The
doctor says he just had a nightmare. She's sure he will wake up
eventually. Rafe dreams of being in bed with Kate and Stefano attacking
him with a bat. Abe joins everyone in the real world where Kayla is
explaining that Rafe will likely be confused for weeks. Kay and Abe go
down the hall. She wonders what will happen if Rafe doesn't remember
the last year and thinks he's still married to Sami. He returns to
Gabi. They chat about what Bernardi was up to and why. Neither of them
have a clue.
Daniel runs into Jenn in Caffeinated. She tries some small talk but he
refuses to take the bait. He explains that he took his son to see
Chloe. He'd love to talk all about their lives, but reminds her that
she asked for a break. She needs time to focus on her son, even though
she knows he's manipulating her. The doctor can't handle all of this
'idle chit-chat' and walks away. She gets a call from the school and
fumes. Meanwhile, Rory and JJ are in the woods drooling over Theresa.
Rory offers to be his wing-man but JJ wants to fly solo. He strolls
over to Theresa to turn on the charm. She escapes. His mom calls and
angrily orders him over to her office. She's taking away his lunch
money and tells him he'll have to brown bag it from now on. She also
bans him from bringing anyone home. "If it sounds fun to you, don't do
it," she instructs. He departs. When he returns a few minutes later to
get his bag, he finds Theresa sitting in his mom's chair. Jenn comes in
and Theresa informs her that she's her new assistant.
EJ and Sami are at Casa DiMera slurping coffee and swapping spit.
Justin calls Elvis to say they have a problem. She gets a call about
Rafe coming out of his coma and EJ suggests she go and see him when he
wakes up. She's amazed he's being so mature about this. After he sends
her out the door, he calls Justin back. EJ starts yelling at his
father's portrait. He calls Mr. Shin to threaten him as Justin rushes
over. After making some more calls, EJ calls Shin back and tries
bribing him into siding against Stefano. Moments later, they get a call
confirming that EJ has complete control of DiMera Enterprises. Justin
explains that means the house as well. He heads out and EJ chuckles to
himself. Meanwhile, Stefano is on his jet drinking champagne with his
special lady. He starts making calls to quash what Justin and EJ are up
to. After they land, they head over to Casa DiMera. Stefano sends his
lady upstairs. "I want you out of my house," EJ tells his father. "Ai
ai ai," Stefano sighs with a laugh.
Sami arrives at the hospital. Kate grabs her before she can get into
Rafe's room. She lectures her about what she did to Rafe and accuses
her of just trying to make herself the center of attention. Sami stomps
off to Rafe's room. Kate grabs Daniel next. He fills her in about
Rafe's condition and refuses to comment on her relationship with the
patient. They join everyone else as Rafe groans in his room. He slowly
opens his eyes. When he sees Sami, he starts beeping and his eyes pop.
It takes some convincing, but Sami finally agrees to leave. Once she
does, his vitals return to normal. Daniel refuses to let Sami back into
is in the park on the phone with her video editor, reminding her she
wants the edits ASAP. She spots some lovey-dovey couple and cringes.
Over in Jenn's office, she refuses to believe that Theresa is her new
assistant. Kayla comes in to explain that Theresa is actually her
niece, Jeannie, Shane and Kim's daughter. Since Theresa is giving
attitude, Kayla sends Jenn and her son out. She lectures her niece for
treating Jenn like she's stupid. Theresa declares that she doesn't want
to be a schnook like her mama. Her aunt advises her to make things
work. "This is probably your last chance," she adds. Out in the hall,
Jenn and JJ bicker about Theresa. Kristen shows up and compliments JJ
on how grown-up he looks. He drifts off. Jenn fills Kristen in about
Daniel. The DiMera tells her that she has already moved on from Brady.
Horton heads back down the hall and Kay tells her how grateful her
niece is for the job. Once the doctor leaves, Jenn asks Theresa why she
was at her house. Theresa claims she was just asking for directions.
Jenn offers to buy her a map so she won't have to drop by again.
At the nurse's station, Daniel tells Maxine about Rafe. She hands him
Eric's test results. Meanwhile, Sami runs over to the rectory to moan
to Eric. He nearly falls over. Eric explains his condition. She
threatens to call his mom but the priest doesn't need anyone hovering.
Sami has a fit when he says Daniel isn't sure what's wrong with him.
The doctor shows up moments later with the test results. Sami won't
stop talking. Daniel finally explains that he is waiting for a
specialist to give him their opinion. Eric kicks his sister out and she
continues talking to herself. Sami heads to the hospital and bursts in
on Jenn and Theresa. They yap it up until the newbie goes off to fill
out some forms. "She reminds me of myself when I was her age," Sami
comments. Jenn shudders. Sami asks her about Eric but Jenn can't pass
along medical information. After she leaves, Anne calls to moan about
Theresa not showing up at HR. Meanwhile, JJ heads home and starts to
google around about Theresa. After he sends her a message, she shows
up, tells him she's a 'bad influence' and reminds him that there's
something she wants. He fetches her a bag of spliffs. Back at the
rectory, Daniel takes some more blood from Eric and advises him to take
it easy. The priest prays while the doctor suddenly notices something
off in the results. "What the hell?" he ponders.
Stefano laughs in his son's face when EJ orders him out of Casa DiMera.
Elvis advises him to check his messages. When he does, he stops
laughing. His son declares that he's beat him at his own game. This is
his revenge for what Stefano did when he thought he wasn't his son.
"You are not my father," EJ says, explaining his father's love kills
people. Stefano vows to make him pay. Elvis is smug and declares the
Phoenix will not rise again. They start arguing about Sami shooting
Bernardi. Kristen shows up. Her brother explains that he's kicking him
out and has taken over all of his companies. "I wouldn't dream of
sleeping here," says Stefano. After he leaves, Kristen is annoyed with
her brother. She thought they were going to be a real family. He
wonders whose side she is going to be on now that the family is at war.
"Oh EeJ... but I love you and Stefano so, so much," she says. He gets a
call from Sami. She moans about her day and fills him in about her
brother needing a specialist. Kristen congratulates her brother on his
little coup and then leaves to call Chyka. They meet up in the park and
she panics about Daniel calling in a specialist. Back at Casa DiMera,
Stefano stops by on his way out to warn his son that one day he will
beg him to take back what he has stolen. Once he leaves, EJ suddenly
looks very worried.

And You Didn't Sell Tickets?
drops by Casa DiMera as EJ is having Stefano's portrait removed. Elvis
smugly informs his brother that it is no longer Stefano's home and he's
taken over the business. "And you didn't sell tickets?" Chad asks. He's
impressed. His brother is giddy. They toast to the victory. EJ tells
him that things are going to change and invites him to move in and take
a wing of the house. Chad has to think about that. He gets a little
woozy and leaves.
Sami sneaks into Rafe's hospital room. She babbles to him about Kate
and can't understand what he was doing with 'that hag'. He seems
listless as she goes on about the FBI jacket. When he opens his eyes
and sees her, she starts rambling about Arianna. He's disoriented and
his machines begin beeping when she mentions a gun. Cameron rushes in
and kicks her out. Kate and Gabi lecture her. Cam lets Gabi in to see
her brother. Sami complains that she's the one who saved his life. "And
now you're trying to kill him," Kate snipes. Cam returns and orders
Sami not to go near Rafe again. After Sami leaves, Chad strolls in. He
chats with Kate and fills her in about the big takeover. She seems
happy about it. When she goes in to see Rafe, he asks her why Sami
tried to kill him. Meanwhile, Sami goes home and moans to EJ about
everyone ganging up on her. He tells her not to worry, gives her a kiss
and then shows her that he's had Stefano's portrait replaced with a
painting of them. Elvis then explains what he did to his father. She's
thrilled until he adds he's been planning it for five months and never
Maggie is at the rectory telling Eric what a great job he has been
doing. He asks her to make sure Victor behaves at the school opening.
She begins talking about how Nicole was his first love. Meanwhile,
Nicole drops by the mansion to get Brady's donation for the school. He
notices papers from the adoption agency in the mail. That makes him
upset. She offers to call them up for him. He turns that down. She
worries that he's thinking of getting back with Kristen. "Why you
bustin' my chops?" he asks. Nic rails about Kristen but he's sure she
genuinely cared, if only in spite of herself. She barks at him to stop
with this; she's the masochist in their little duo. After she heads
out, Maggie comes home and Brady asks her if it's possible to be
addicted to love. He feels like he is going through withdrawal but he's
determined to end this downward spiral. Brady tears up the adoption
Kristen berates Dr. Chyka in the park. He insists the drug won't be
detected but could really use a look at the toxicology work. She stomps
off. Over at his place, after going through Eric's results, Daniel gets
a clue and calls a specialist. Kristen shows up moments later. She
pretends she is there to talk about Jenn. He doesn't buy it and claims
he knows what she is up to. The doctor accuses her of trying to score
points with Brady. The DiMera tells him she knows she has lost Brady
for good. Parker yells for his dad. As soon as Daniel steps away, she
snaps some photos of Eric's toxicology report. The doctor catches her
snooping. Across town, Nicole shows up at the rectory and is worried
when Eric tells her he had a slight relapse. She's glad to hear he's
seeing a doctor about it. After she bustles off, he says a prayer and
suddenly has a flash of the night he was drugged.
July 11, 2013
Casa DiMera, Sami is furious that EJ went behind her back for months as
he planned to oust his father. He thinks she just wants to bitch and
moan because she wasn't included in the plot. EJ yells about how he now
has all of the power and accuses her of acting like 'a petulant
adolescent'. She's sure that his father has kept his need for revenge
and reminds him that Stefano still has things over them. Sami says that
EJ's been too worried about his daddy issues to think about her issues
with her son. Elvis says he would never let anything happen to William.
If she couldn't figure that out, he doesn't know why she's marrying
him. He yells in her face and then yells in her ear about how much more
powerful he is than his father. They throw each other around the room
and do it on the couch. "Tell me that you know I did the right thing,"
he prods after. She does. They giggle and sweat. He promises that they
will have a happy ending.
At his place, Daniel catches Kristen snooping at Eric's medical files.
She claims she was just looking at a note from Jenn and then slips off
as Maggie arrives. He's annoyed at her for getting involved in his mess
with JJ and Jenn. Although he doesn't want to, Daniel tells his mom
that he needs to respect Jenn's wanting a break. After he sends Parker
off with Maggie, he pours over Ericꞌs tests some more and then calls
for confirmation that the priest was poisoned. A specialist tells him
there is no evidence of it. Meanwhile, Chyka meets with Kristen in the
park. He explains that the pictures of the results she sent to him
don't reveal anything. Kristen meets with her video editor next. They

agrees to pray for him, but urges her to try and fix things with
Daniel. Meanwhile, Theresa drops by the pub to see her grandma. She
tells Caroline how glad she is that she's doing better. Theresa jogs
back to Jennꞌs office. The Horton is waiting for her and lectures her
for not getting to HR. They bicker about JJ. Theresa says he's a good
kid. Jenn says they can put that behind them and peppily reminds her
that her son is in high school. After Jenn stomps off, Theresa looks at
the spliffs in her bag that she got from JJ and tells herself that she
will do what she wants on her own time. Back at the pub, Eric drops in
to see his grandma. She tells him about Theresa. When he gets back to
the rectory, Kristen pops in and tells him she has something to share

lives. She doesn't know when he suddenly turned into someone with

about hers. After he storms off, Maggie comes by with Parker. He plays
with dolls. Adrienne shows him a picture of Arianna. She leaves her

ladies are too distracted by lemonade to notice.

Hell, what's the point in trying?" she asks. They discuss redemption.

opening ceremony for the school. She wants to meet the bishop and
promises not to cause a scene. Ciara runs in with her friend Jamie.

children for a tour. "What the hell are you looking at?" Kristen asks
Jesus. She argues with him about Eric and yells that this is all his
fault until she chucks her purse at him.

explains that sleep is his defense mechanism. Outside of the room, Abe

and whatever, whatever'. Will assures him they weren't having sex;

she's twelve," he adds, giving his son a cuddle.
