hopes they can mend some fences. Brady jogs off to get a gift from her.
Stefano strolls in. He notices Harold and Mary patched up the bullet
holes. Kristen offers to call her brothers over. He's a bit cranky so
she tells him about John's visit. Kristen decides to run off and see
John, asking her father not to scare Brady off. Once she's gone, Brady
returns. Awkward small talk happens. "This is awkward," Brady points
out. He makes it clear that he loves Kristen but doesn't trust him.
Stefano warns him not to hurt his daughter in any way.

jealous and gruffly sends Roman away. The shrink is happy to see him.
He's grumpy and tells her about the Brady situation, making it clear
that he doesn't want her help. John goes down to Mandalay alone.
Kristen confronts him and trashes his story about Isabella, saying it
was just 'a stupid gimmick'. She claims that Brady didn't care for his
gift. He tells her she is clueless. Kristen claims he can't get his son
back with cheap gimmicks. "I can afford more than that," he says. She
flirts and strolls off.
In the square, Sami is waving at Lucas in the background as clueless
Rafe asks Horton about Will and then explains his sister is getting
married tomorrow. He happily strolls off. Sami runs over to Lucas and
tells him her plan to destroy evidence. She explains they can swipe a
key card and grab the evidence. Lucas reminds her Will also signed away
his rights. She says that's meaningless. He agrees to help and they
plod off. At the station, she tries stealing a pass from Hope's office.
She has to hide when she hears her dad talking to Lucas in the hall.
Lucas manages to fob Roman off. Sami decides to steal her dad's pass.
Once they have broken into the evidence room, they pass by all of the
other crimes they've been involved with until they find the right one.
Rafe shows up and they hide. As the cop is on his way out, he can smell
something familiar but leaves. Lucas and Sami try to grab the evidence.
It's hard because he can't lift her. Meanwhile, Rafe realizes what he
could smell in the evidence room.
Chloe begins kissing a drunk Daniel in his hotel room. He stops her.
"You look like you needed a friend," she says. The doctor reminds her
that he's with Jenn and asks her to go. Eventually, he convinces her to
actually leave. He calls Jenn, leaving a babbling message. Meanwhile,
Chloe heads back to the apartment and worries to her mom that she's
overplayed her hand. Across town, Hope arrives at the pub as the party
is winding down. She begins questioning Jenn, who unloads about the
Nancy situation. Maxine spots the Horton and orders her to go and see
Daniel. Jenn checks her messages. She and Hope hear Daniel's and
surmise that he's a mess. Anne is watching this and calls Chloe to give
her a warning. Anne corners Jenn to stall her. They start threatening
each other. At the same moment, the diva grabs her mom's sleeping pills
and runs back to the hotel. When she gets to Daniel's room, he's out so
she drugs his drink and hides in the bathroom, accidentally dropping
the pill box. The doctor returns and drinks down the fluid. She emerges
once he's passed out. Anne calls to say Jenn is on the way. Chloe works

shows up at Daniel's hotel room. Chloe answers the door. Daniel is
passed out half naked in bed."You make me sick!" bellows Jenn. She
storms off. Chloe's happy. The doctor groans. She wonders if she used
too many pills and sneaks out. In the hallway, she calls Daniel to wake
him up. He doesn't know what's going on but offers to take a cab over
to talk to her. Chloe hurries home. Meanwhile, Jenn goes home in tears.
She stares at the couch and thinks of dry-humping Daniel there. She
can't believe that's all over. Chloe calls her and Jenn blows up at
her. Maggie and her mink farm drop by the Horton house with some
recipes. Jenn informs her that 'it's over' with Daniel and she doesn't
want to discuss it. They do anyway. Maggie assumes this is Chloe's
fault and urges her to give the doctor a chance to explain. Back across
town, Daniel stumbles to his place and asks the diva out for some air.
When they get out to the square, he tells her that kissing him was 'out
of bounds'... but he shouldn't have been so hard on her. He threatens
to cut off contact between them if she can't behave. She starts to walk
away but stays in the bushes when Jenn shows up after paying his hotel
room a visit. Jenn slaps him.

couple head upstairs. Father and son discuss returning to the house.

coin. Stefano thinks they are past that and asks EJ to move in with the

come between him and his son. Upstairs, Brady and Kristen are romping
in the sack and talking about doing it in every room. They get
lovey-dovey. He gives her a key ring. "Too much cheese?" he asks. She
likes it. He gets cheesier until he falls asleep. She sneaks
downstairs. Her father finds her walking around. She admits that she
still has designs on John. He thinks she's crazy. She cuddles up with
him and tells him how brilliant her plan is. Brady stands in the
doorway and eavesdrops.
Sami and Lucas bicker in the evidence room as she tries to get the box
on EJ's shooting. They hide as Rafe returns. He sniffs around and then
notices Lucas cowering. "Uh... this isn't Hope's office?" Lucas asks.
Rafe doesn't buy his excuses but Lucas keeps making them. The cop calls
Sami to come out. She does and then tries to leave. Rafe says it's not
that easy. They won't explain what they are doing and challenge him to
arrest them. He guesses this is about Will and Nick. He assures them
that he has thoroughly checked out Nick's files. The cop lets them go
but gives them a warning that 'their asses' will go to jail if this
happens again. Sami and Lucas go to Caffeinated. She's determined to
try again but he doesn't want to go back to jail. They bicker about

away. Chloe heads back to the apartment and fills her mom in. Nancy

realizes she left them in the doctor's room. The diva doesn't know what
to do. Her mom has an idea and heads out. Chloe calls Anne over to
babysit while she goes to deal with Jenn. Anne tells her to have fun
making her miserable. Meanwhile, Hope drops by Jenn's place. Jenn
doesn't want to talk. Hope decides to go. As soon as she does, Chloe
shows up and explains that she didn't sleep with Daniel. "Cut the
crap," demands Jenn. She boots her out. The Horton doesn't understand
what's going on. Across town, Nancy shows up at Daniel's. He answers
the door in his underwear. She enters and babbles, peering around for
the pills. She starts coughing up a lung. He walks into the hall to
take a call and she grabs the pills off the floor. The doctor catches

from marrying Nick. Sonny gets worked up about 'precious Gabi and the
homophobe man of her dreams'. He urges Will not to be stupid and walks
off as Marlena arrives. Will tells the shrink he has something he needs
to own up to. As he heads for the door, Sonny tries to talk him out of
his plan again. Will won't listen. Meanwhile, Rafe is at the pub
checking on his sister. He apologizes for being a jerk and admits he
still has 'some reservations' about Nick. But she loves the ex-con
so... why not? She hugs Rafe when he finally confirms he'll attend her
wedding. After big brother leaves, Will shows up. Gabi tells him she's
getting married tomorrow. Hope bustles in and they talk about how great
the Horton family is. Will stares and then decides not to say anything
after all. He wishes her well and leaves. Hope joins Gabi and they gab
about having the wedding in Horton house. This makes Gabi optimistic.
At that moment, Will returns to Caffeinated and tells Sonny that he
didn't go through with his plan. It would have hurt the family too
much. He feels helpless.

explaining her plot to Stefano. She realizes Brady is there and covers.
Brady joins them. Stefano makes himself scarce. Brady assures her that
he loves her, regardless of who her father is. He tells her that he
could get used to mansion life. She gets him to play "Beautiful
Dreamer" on the piano for her. Kristen actually cries. They smooch. He
gets a call and has to run to the office. "It's breaking my heart that
I have to break yours," she admits to herself. Stefano comes down and
talks to his daughter about her plan. She has more planned than just
dumping Brady at the altar. He chuckles after she explains. He's sure
John and Marlena will be miserable for the rest of their lives. "You
are a true DiMera," he says, approvingly. Meanwhile, John jogs around

blurts out that Stefano could help her son. EJ hopes she's not serious.

her that Stefano blackmailed Will too. She still thinks that Stefano
could be her son's 'savior' and asks Elvis to help. EJ refuses. She

would sell her soul for her kids. Elvis explains there may be a way to
guarantee his father's help. They could move into the mansion with the

but then says he's willing to give the family another chance. They joke

moving in. "You are my son. That's all that counts," Stefano says.

hatchet. Kristen smooths her eyebrows. John suggests the three of them
have dinner. "We have to eat, right?" Kristen says. She leaves and
tries to figure out what's going on. The DiMera heads to the hospital
to tell Marlena that Brady wasn't eaten by Satan last night. "Thanks
for that," says the shrink. Kristen puts the boot in about having
breakfast with John and how they are having dinner tonight. Marlena
refuses to get riled up. Kristen shows her a text with the dinner
reservation in it. The sniping continues. Back at Caffeinated, Brady
and his father analyze the situation. John tells him he regrets some of
the things he's said. Brady leaves and meets up with Kristen by the
square. He tells her that he thinks his father has never gotten her out
of his system. Meanwhile, Marlena finds John at the pub. She assumes

as they smooch. EJ smirks. Sami leaps up and blurts that he needs to
know what Nick has done. EJ covers. Rafe wanders off. Sami pants. She
and EJ go back to discussing the move. He's sure his father will be no
problem... and her brother and Kristen live there too. Sami flips. "I
can't do it," she says. Kristen tried to kill her mom. "Everyone tries
to kill someone some time or other," he says. They discuss strategy and
stare into each other's eyes until he gets called away to a meeting.
She decides to make 'sucking up an art form' and then fantasizes about
being Kristen's terrorized minion. "I can't do this," she decides.

about Daniel. The blond can't do this right now. Soon, Rafe arrives and

and groom arrive. Alone, Nick thanks Rafe for being there. "You are
family to me now," he says. They hug. Meanwhile, Hope and Jenn give
Gabi a gift from Jessica and a bracelet from Alice. Rafe makes a little
speech and then the wedding starts. They exchange rings and are
pronounced husband and wife. He vows to protect her and the baby.

and says they are bonkers. Matt takes off. Eric tells Nicole that he
needs to help people, even criminals. She worries that Vargas could
hurt him. He's sure things will be fine. Nic worries some more so he
encourages her to be more compassionate. She doesn't believe in
miracles. He bustles off. As Nicole talks to herself, Caroline shows up
to say that no one will hurt Eric. "What is this about, Chloe?" she
asks. Nic squints and corrects her. She explains an ex-con will be
living there. "You?" Ma Brady asks. She thinks that Nicole should trust
the priest's judgement more. Over at Statesville, Vargas does push-ups
in his cell and strikes off another day on his calendar. He thinks

that he has plans. Eric arrives to pick him up.
