Flavor of the Month.
the school, Kristen prepares to speak to the bishop as the guests
arrive. Marlena furrows her brow at the DiMera and Brady stares.
Kristen tells the bishop that she has a confession to make. "It's about
me and Father Eric," she explains. Victor and Maggie interrupt and joke
around with the holy man. Brady asks Kristen out to the garden. Across
the room, Father Matt tells Eric how proud he is of him. Eric's parents
get in on the loving while Nicole stomps over to EJ to tell him how
much she hates him. She's miffed that he told Eric she has feelings for
him. "He's your flavor of the month," he teases. She says that's
disgusting so he taunts her some more. Meanwhile, Marlena takes her
daughter aside and repeats that she's uncomfortable with her marriage
plans, but she wants her happy and will support her. Sami sobs and hugs
her. Later, Nicole and Victor chat with the monsignor. She's impressed
that Victor isn't hating on her. They share their mutual disdain for
Sami and the DiMeras.
Adrienne heads over to her son's place. Will answers the door. Sonny
doesn't want to talk to her and won't let her finish any of her
sentences. He angrily lectures her. "You can lock the door behind us,"
he says, storming out with Will. Adrienne sobs. She heads over to the
station and corners Abe. She explains that she has important evidence.
He calls in Melinda, the prosecutor. Adrienne requests immunity for
someone involved in the case. Melinda reluctantly agrees. Once they
sign some paperwork, Adrienne hands over the video. Melinda calls for a
warrant to arrest Sami. That doesn't take long. Abe thinks she's moving
too fast. Meanwhile, Will and Sonny make it over to the church and
apologize to Sami for being late. She joins up with EJ and they chat
about her brother. He thinks it's time for them to share their wedding
news with everyone. They make out and then share their news. Sami asks
her family to pretend to be happy. Roman does his best. "When I grow
up, can I get married as many times as Sami?" Ciara asks. Over in a
corner, Eric tells Nicole that none of this would have been possible
without her. He wanders over to his sister as she yaps to the Bishop
about her wedding.
Brady and Kristen meet in the garden. She keeps cutting him off until
he finally explains his father confirmed what she said. Although he's
sure that her feelings for him are real, he can't forget the pain she
cause. They can't go back, but they can start over. She says it's too
late. He's still in love with her and thinks they still have a chance.
Kristen can't handle this and runs off. When she gets inside, the
bishop corners her to resume their conversation. Kristen calls for
everyone's attention. She reaches into her purse and then says she lost
the check she was going to give him. She makes a little speech about
the underprivileged and her plan to give more to the school. The bishop
is happy, but a bit confused. Kristen smooths that over. After he
strolls off, Marlena comes over to needle her. "What are you up to?"
asks the shrink. Kristen chomps on a cookie and warns her that she just
dodged a bullet. After the DiMera strolls off, Marlena warns Hope that
Kristen seemed 'armed and ready'. While Eric makes a speech, Abe,
Melinda and a cop arrive. Abe tries to get Sami to leave. She won't so
he has to arrest her in front of everyone.

murder. Everyone gasps and burbles. The bishop isn't thrilled about
this and asks Eric what's going on. EJ reads the warrant and Caroline
promises that all will be taken care of. Melinda tells Roman to stay
out of this and he accuses her of showboating. While Elvis calls
Justin, Hope declares herself back on duty and pawns Ciara off on
Maggie. Sami demands to make a public statement. Roman throws a
journalist across the room so his daughter can talk about how great
Eric is and how this should be his day. Finally, she lets the cops
escort her out. A donor declares that he wants his money back and
storms off. Roman tells the family that they should let Justin handle
this and stay away. The bishop tells Eric they need to get this
ceremony done because he has other stuff to do. Everyone files off to
consecrate the school. Roman and Marlena discuss what could be going on
with Will and Sonny. Roman thinks there could be new evidence.
Meanwhile, Nicole and Kristen discuss Sami ruining Eric's big day. "I
thought that would have been you," Nicole says. She wonders why the
DiMera is even there and suspects she was there for trouble. Kristen
teases her about Eric. "Man plans and God laughs," she muses before
wandering out. She runs into Brady in the garden. He tells her how
betrayed and full of hatred he felt. Now that he knows the truth, his
feelings have changed. She wonders if he is looking for revenge. Brady
isn't and he can't move on from her. He wonders if she has. Back
inside, Eric tells Nic he needs to lay low for awhile. "You've worked
your priestly ass off and you deserve a few bows," she says. He's too
worried about his sister for that and blames himself for this mess. Nic
tells him that no one could have stopped Sami from acting like 'Ma
Barker'. She insists that Sami is just 'a selfish bitch' and he's
another of her victims. The priest orders her to stop. "We're done," he
Adrienne is pacing at the station as Marge is led in. She complains
about how the Brady clan are always stomping on justice for her Joe.

shoulder. Down the hall, Sami and EJ meet with Justin, Abe and Melinda.
The DA explains that they need to clear some things up with Mz. Brady.
Justin tries convincing his client to keep her trap shut. That fails.
"This is starting to sound like a fishing expedition," Justin says as
the questioning goes on. Eventually, Melinda shows them the video.
Justin takes his client aside and lectures her for lying to him. Sami
guesses she is 'screwed'. Melinda tells them she now has motive and
will go back to the grand jury for an indictment. Hope's annoyed Abe
didn't tip her off about this. He reminds her that it wouldn't be
allowed. "I guess," she shrugs. She leads Sami off to a cell,
apologizes and advises her to keep her head down. Back upstairs, Justin
demands to know where the video came from. Adrienne and Marge enter.
Melinda thanks the Kiriakis for her help and leads Marge off to a press
Caroline, Victor and Maggie take Ciara to the pub. She's worried that
Sami won't be able to get married in prison. Victor says prison
marriages are common. Maggie takes her off for cookies. Caroline wishes

involved in it. He's sure they will both suffer for it.

he's not the one who hid evidence. Abe challenges him to produce
evidence that Bernardi was guilty. EJ can't. Meanwhile, Justin and
Adrienne argue outside of the square. He's furious that she never told
him about the video. She reminds him that she kept trying to tell him
and he wouldn't listen. He thinks she is so desperate to get their son
away from Will that he would send a woman to prison. She insists she
was just protecting their son and shows him the immunity papers. It
dawns on her that no one told him about the video. "Nice clients you
have," she says. He's pissed and walks off.

place to wait for Justin. The lawyer has been intercepted in the square
by EJ. Elvis wants to throw Adrienne to the wolves. Justin doesn't like
that idea and is annoyed that EJ risked putting Sonny and Sami is
prison to avoid sidetracking his plot against Stefano. "Find yourself
another lawyer," Justin declares. At their place, Sonny explains to
Will that he accidentally sent the video to his mom. Will assures him
it's okay and gives him a hug. Justin strolls in and demands to know
everything. William tells him the whole story, including the fact that
he shot EJ. He blames himself for everything and begs him for help.

to claim attorney-client privilege. Justin tells them to stay quiet.

her. He beats himself up for being a 'train-wreck'. Over at the

really changed. Eric hopes he doesn't live to regret this and urges him
