Lady Macbeth And Bambi.
is at home drinking wine when her mom shows up. Her car just died. Jenn
isn't happy to see her daughter having a glass of wine. Abby suggests
she borrow her car and then accidentally spills the wine on Jenn's
outfit. Abby orders her to change her clothes. Before Jenn can leave,
Lucas shows up. He explains that Kate needs someone to book her a hotel
suite and they can't trust her to do it herself. He begs her to call
around. Jenn books her a week in France. When Lucas hears his sister is
going out with Daniel, he grimaces and groans. "I can't believe you're
so stupid," he says. Abby heads out. Lucas lectures Jenn about the
doctor's sleaziness. She insists that she loves Daniel and nothing will
get in their way.
Daniel is shocked to open his door and find Chloe standing there. He
reluctantly lets her in. She assures him she's not in any trouble. He
tips her off that Jenn is on her way over. She grumbles and explains
that being around him again is harder than she'd thought it would be.
Jenn sends the doctor a text saying she will be delayed. He prompts
Chloe to tell him why she's there. The doctor grits his teeth as she
meanders around the point of this conversation. Eventually, she
explains that something 'great' has happened for them. He gets tired of
her not explaining anything and asks her to go. "Parker is your son.
Our son," she finally explains. Over at the pub, Kayla check up on
Caroline and thinks she's doing great, even if she forgot someone's
name. Stephanie calls her mom with some distressing news. Kayla offers
to take care of it. She runs off to find Daniel.
Sami lectures Kristen and Brady at the hospital. "I'm going to have
them disinfect your mouth and throw you in the psych ward," Sami tells
him. He sends Kristen out and tells his sister that she has to deal
with him being in a relationship with the DiMera. Sami fumes and
lectures. He shakes his head. They argue and he defends his lady. "So
you're not Lady Macbeth and Bambi like I thought?" she sarcastically
asks, stomping off. She finds Kristen in the hall. Sami huffs and
puffs. Kristen reminds Sami of her own faults. "Brady's always had a
thing about slutty bitches so he was easy prey," Sami grunts. Kristen
reminds her that she's the kids' aunt and suggests they get cocktails.
Sami would rather stick needles in her eyes. "I might be more than your
children's aunt soon," Kristen smirks. She returns to Brady and worries
that his family is at war over her. He just wants to go. She takes him
back to her room. He admits that he's falling in love with her.
Back at the hospital, John quizzes Marlena about what she knew of his
son and Kristen. She admits she knew and hated knowing what she knew.
This has been killing her inside. He nearly falls over when she
confesses that she's known for a month. John's furious. She rants at
him for not believing her earlier. The shrink is sick of being the
villain. She's sure he would have kept his mouth shut too. He doubts
that. Sami interrupts to say that Brady has 'drunk the Kool-Aid' and
they need to get him back. She hugs them and runs off for air. John
asks Marlena if she is keeping something else from him. She insists
there is nothing. He doesn't quite believe her. That infuriates her.
They squint up a storm. He declares that he's getting a hotel room so
he can be alone.
This Never Should Have Happened
January 8, 2013
Daniel's, Chloe blurts out that Parker is their son. He thinks she's
playing a sick game but the diva insists otherwise. The doctor says
that's impossible but she explains that the results were tampered with
twice and Caroline accidentally turned them back into the right ones.
Dan thinks she's bonkers but she insists that this is for real. Kayla
arrives and backs up Chloe's story. She even hands him a confession
from Ian, the computer geek who helped Stephanie do the record
switching. Daniel looks over the evidence. This all seems random. Kay
says that Ian was in rehab and needed to get it off his chest. Philip
had another DNA test done and it confirmed everything. "This never
should have happened," Kay summarizes. Daniel and the diva decide to
pay the kid a visit.
Nick and Maggie stroll the square and he brags about his new job with
Kate. She thinks he'll be a great dad. Gabi shows up to second that
emotion. After the redhead heads off, Gabi asks Nick if his parents
think this wedding is a bad idea. He insists that they are thrilled
about it. She wishes her mom would feel that way. He stops her from
calling and giving her mom a heart attack. Nick gets her to call her
brother instead so he can break the news more gently.
Jenn is at home blathering to Lucas about how much she loves Daniel. He
tells her she'll regret going on a date with him. She's about to
flounce off but trips on a random box. Billie shows up with more boxes
and realizes this is her fault. Jenn wakes up. They want to take her to
the ER. Billie decides she'll look after her and they send Lucas off to
his party. Dan sends a text asking Jenn to delay. Billie takes Jenn to
a hospital for an MRI. They wait on the results. Jenn talks about how
boxes are always getting in her way. When Jenn finally gets to
Daniel's, she finds Kayla waiting for her.
At Sonny's, he helps Will tie on his bow-tie. They smooch. Then Will
gets changed so they can go to Nick's bachelor party. They head down to
Caffeinated to tell Chad and Cameron they are having the party there.
Lucas joins them. They all make fun of Nick. After they mention he got
out of prison around Labor Day, a light bulb appears over Cameron's
head and he bustles off. Will panics and calls Gabi to say that Cameron
must have figured out Nick is not the father. Nick eventually shows up
and orders some decaf. Awkward conversation dominates. Lucas notices
his son seems to resent Nick for having a family with Gabi. Meanwhile,
Gabi rushes over to the hospital to corner Cameron. He confirms that
everything they say is confidential, but asks her if Nick knows the
child isn't his. Someone eavesdrops.
Across town, Henderson informs Victor that Philip is in the mansion
with Parker. Later, Maggie returns and finds Victor moping. He explains
what happened and says that Parker will still be part of his life. He's
worried about how Philip will deal with saying goodbye. Eventually, he
points out that this means the kid is her grandson. They get sappy
about it. Daniel and Chloe show up while Maggie plays peek-a-boo with
the kid. Chloe gets Parker to toddle over to Daniel.

Happily Ever After.
saunters into Sami's and notices the giant love pinata. "OMG! I just
reduced your sister's wedding to an ethnic stereotype," she realizes.
He fobs it off and they make out. She reminds him that they need to go
to the pub. He tells her she can let her guard down and then suggests
she tell EJ what's happening between them. She promises to tell him
soon. Rafe suggests they start their own 'happily ever after' once the
wedding is over.
Gabi joins Nick outside the pub and tells him that Cameron knows he's
not the father. Someone eavesdrops on them from the bushes. Nick gets
paranoid but she assures him that he will keep his mouth shut. He calms
down. Inside the pub, Abby is putting out the party favors while Will
helps her. She senses he's bugged about the wedding. Gabi and Nick come
in as Abby leaves to take a call. Nick isn't happy to find out that
Will already knows Cam knows. Will doesn't like getting the blame for
things. Sami and Rafe show up and fuss over Gabi while Nick apologizes
to William. Later, they all sit around a table and Sami reads a prayer
to them in Spanish. Everyone claps. Sami tears up and asks Gabi to
think of her as a substitute mom. Rafe takes his sister aside and
explains that their mom will get her news in the morning.
Jenn is startled to find Kayla at Daniel's. The doctor won't explain
what's going on. Meanwhile, Daniel is at the mansion hugging Parker.
Maggie and Victor tear up. Chloe declares that they are finally a
family. Daniel doesn't look so convinced. The diva explains that she
left her job and apartment so she can stay as long as he wants. Chloe
putters off. Vic explains Philly is breaking the news to Kate. As
Victor hooks the kid up with milk and cookies, Chloe heads for the
door. Jenn is standing there and startled to see her. The diva keeps
mum. Jenn spots Parker and the doctor explains what happened. Chloe
gives Parker his bunny and leaves. Kayla shows up and apologizes to
everyone for what Stephanie did. Later, Parker wanders back in because
his bunny's ear is busted. Daniel gets some thread to fix it. Jenn asks
him how long Chloe is sticking around. He admits he won't let the kid
get away from him again. Maggie and Victor show up to fuss some more.
"He's a monkey. He takes after his father," Daniel says. Off in the
corner, Victor worries about what this will mean for Jenn and the
doctor. The blond says she won't worry about that right now. Before she
can slip away, Daniel catches her and makes it clear that he still
wants her in his life. They kiss.
At the church, Nicole senses Eric has problems and tries to get him to
open up. He won't gossip with her about his family. He's snippy so she
gets stroppy and strides out. Nic meets Chloe at Caffeinated. The diva
talks about how her life has really turned around. Nic is happier to
hear about that than her own crummy life. She wonders what her friend
is planning. "I'm going to have everything that should be mine," Chloe
says. Her friend guesses that means she's after Daniel and warns her
that he's in love with Jenn. Chloe remains confident. Back at the
church, Sami hears Nick being congratulated about his new job and
starts interrogating him. She was going to give him a job offer at the
reception and demands to know what Kate offered him. Sami tells him she
won't hold this against him, but the same doesn't apply for Kate. Eric
eventually shows up and talks about marriage. Rafe and Sami recall
their wedding as someone lurks in the distance.

their grandson and rails about Chloe. They go outside and he insists
that they haven't lost Parker. He actually thinks everyone has behaved
themselves and they should just accept how things have panned out. Kate
refuses to accept that. Her eyes bug out when he tells her Chloe is
back for awhile. "The slut is part of the package," he says. She
realizes he's still the grandfather either way and storms off.
Daniel wakes up at the mansion and finds Chloe reading to Parker. She
leaves the doctor to finish the book. The diva returns a moment later
to announce she got a job as a music teacher in town. She's sure this
is a new beginning for her. They vaguely discuss how things will work.
Later, Kate shows up, demanding to see her grandson. "Will isn't here,"
Chloe declares, making it clear she won't let her see Parker again. She
reminds Kate of all the things she did to her in the past and says
she'll never let her hurt her son. Eventually, Chloe shuts the door,
leaving Kate to swear to herself. She realizes that Daniel still
doesn't know that Chloe was a prostitute. Meanwhile, Victor drops by
the hospital to check on Daniel. The doctor tells him his dreams are
coming true. Victor isn't happy to learn that Chloe is sticking around
but Daniel insists she will accept that he's moving on with Jenn.

appears. Chad congratulates her. Being mad at her was too exhausting so
he stopped. Gabi grunts as he and Abby hold hands. He heads out. The
pregnant chick encourages her friend to ask Chad to be her date.
Meanwhile, Rafe corners Nick at the pub. Nick is expecting a lecture so
he tries to impress him with spread sheets about their finances and how
he will look after the family. Rafe's actually there to give him
tickets to Cancun. Gabi arrives to hear about this and is thrilled. Her
mom calls Rafe, rants and hangs up. Gabi guesses her mom hates her.

has been up to. They agree not to let that get between them. She makes
some wedding calls and he cleans his fingernails. Johnny runs in and
his father offers to take him to school. EJ babbles to Sami about how
normal and happy he feels around her. "We make a great team," she says.
He says he's in love with her... again. She tears up. Johnny drags his
dad out the door before she can offer much of a response.

closet. Will's thrilled. He wants to start moving stuff in now. After
he leaps into the shower, Sonny makes a call about his Valentine's
gift. Sonny meets up with Abby at Caffeinated. She wonders why he
didn't move in with Will sooner. He encourages her to give Chad a call.

up. Rafe puts his jacket on without a shirt and leaves. Sami is
panting. Hope helps her get dressed and quizzes her about Rafe. She's
thrilled to hear they are trying again. Sami jumps up and down.

old times. They discuss pediatricians and then she suggests they get
coffee. He has other plans and makes it clear to her that he is with
Jenn now. She claims she has no illusions about that. When she wanders
off, she overhears Anne mocking Jenn "Her Royal Hortonness" to one of
the nurses. She rails about all of the Hortons and their 'saintly'
reputation. Chloe decides to ask her out for coffee.
At Caffeinated, Sonny is perplexed to hear that Chad is going to the
wedding. "What the what?" asks Sonny. Chad explains he's tired of being
mad all the time. Besides, the wedding is an excuse for a date with
Abby. Meanwhile, at home, Abby interrogates her mom about what she did
with Daniel last night. Jenn explains it wasn't what she expected. She
breaks the news about Parker. Later, Daniel shows up to tell Jenn that
Parker doesn't need to change their relationship. She promises to
always be there for him. They agree to have a 'shopping date' to get
things for the kid. When he heads back to the mansion, he finds Chloe
with Parker. She tells him she's always sensed that he was the boy's
real father so she wants them to change his name to Parker Daniel

is back," she announces. She fills him in about Chloe's return and the
child. He finds this hilarious. Billie shows up. Lucas makes it clear
he wouldn't go near Chloe 'with a chair and whip'. He's just happy
that Chloe will go after Daniel and get him away from Jenn.
At the pub, Nick clamps down when Gabi suggests that Will be the
child's godfather. This annoys Will. Nick defends his point of view.

time and never be able to tell it the truth. Will still wants to be
involved. They tell him again that he's already done enough. Gabi goes
off to get into her wedding dress. Sami joins her and advises Gabi 'not
to get on the hormone train'. She says that she will always be a sister
