There is Something Off
arrives outside of Casa DiMera, talking on the phone to EJ and inviting him to
the memorial for Sydney. Elvis isn't interested but Rafe talks him around. As he
hangs up, Kate arrives. Stefano opens the door and sees that the Fed is still
hanging around. Rafe pointedly wonders why EJ isn't more upset that his child is
gone. Stefano ushers Rafe away, but he can't shake what he just suggested.
"There is something off about Elvis. He's up to something," he tells Kate.
Meanwhile, his son is busy prodding Anna to put the finishing touches on her
latest task. She worries that he's not thinking things through. He barks at her
and then looks over her latest piece of handiwork. Smirking, he says this is
exactly what he needs to blow apart Rafe and Sami. He heads over to the mansion
to pick up Johnny. Stefano tries to offer him a warning about Rafe. Elvis
doesn't want his advice. In fact, he doesn't want anything from him and warns
his father to steer clear of Syd's memorial. "You are dead to me," Elvis spits.
After he takes his son and stomps away, Kate wonders why he didn't tell him
about Rafe's questions. "Let Mr. FBI take Elvis down. It will serve him right,"
Victor bumps into Philip at the pub and asks after Mel. His son is still furious
and launches into a rant. When he's calmed down for a split second, Victor
explains that Bo isn't Mel's father, not that he knows who the daddy is. They
continue arguing. Philip calls him out for keeping the fact that Carly is Mel's
mom a secret and lays the blame for this entire mess on him. Victor insists that
the blame rests on Carly's head. "You want to make sure somebody gets
punished... she's your target," Victor says.
the park, Daniel is still in shock over what Carly's told him. She explains how
it happened and rehashes their carnal carnival at a medical conference. It was
just supposed to be some 'slumming' between friends. After she found out she was
pregnant, she couldn't ruin his life with Rebecca so she kept it to herself. He
wonders if Melanie knows. "I couldn't tell her," she says. He's still furious
she never told him anything about this. "Lawrence built walls around me," she
adds. Daniel thought that they were friends and could always be honest with each
other. "I couldn't. I could have told you early on, but later it would have
signed your death warrant. Lawrence would have had you killed," she explains,
warning him that Vivian could still kill him for this. Neither of them know what
to say so he promises to protect his daughter. She cries and says that, other
than Bo, he's her only friend in the world. "Do you hate me too, or can you
forgive me?" she asks. He can't answer that. As he walks away, she cries.
at the hospital, Vivian prepares to snuff out Mel with a pillow. Mel struggles.
Viv stares and pulls the pillow away. Mel begins to scream and then stares up at
Viv. "You have to kill me, right? Because of your nephew," Mel gasps. Viv goes
into shock that she actually understands. "Oh God! Oh God! You are such a sweet,
cheerful girl. Melanie... Melanie..." Vivian weeps. Mel weeps too and says that
everything will be better if she dies. She tells her that everything in her life
has always gone wrong. She runs through the list of Trent's sins, her many
mistakes and now having Carly as a mother. "She won't even tell me who my father
is, so if I have to die, then today is a good day to do it," Mel declares.
Vivian starts to break down and begs for her forgiveness.
At the station, Bo
informs Hope that they've brought Gus in. She agrees that they have to take down
Vivian any way they can. They interrogate Gus but all that he will tell them is
that Vivian went home to get a pair of gloves. That's enough to make the cops
suspicious. They hurry over to Mel's hospital room where Philip has just walked
in on Viv with his bullet riddled bride and they are screaming at each other.
Melanie woozily tells them that she just had a dream about Vivian. Viv walks out
and Bo begins lecturing the guard who let his guard down. He gets a call from
Carly and rushes off to meet her at the pub. When he gets there, they hug and
she tells him how angry Daniel is. "All I wanted to do was protect him and
Melanie and I think I have lost them forever," she cries. Meanwhile, Daniel
arrives at the hospital and stares at Mel as she sleeps.
Vivian returns to the Kiriakis compound, Lawrence's ghost pops up. He's angry
that she broke her promise and failed to kill Mel. "I realized she's an innocent
girl," Vivian explains. He's furious but she refuses to do this anymore. After
she bids him adieu, he vanishes. As she wanders inside, she wonders what she's
been doing. Victor interrupts her ruminations and asks her what she was up to.
"I had a sudden realization. I hate to change plans but I have to," she
explains. She couldn't kill Mel, which may be for the best, but at least Carly
will still be going to prison and her daughter will always hate her.
home, Sami attempts convincing Will that Syd is really gone but he still finds
it impossible to accept. She turns to Rafe and thanks him for all of his help.
He's annoyed that EJ got to decide that they are having the memorial at the
pier. He beats up on himself again for failing. They go down to the pier and
Elvis soon arrives with Johnny. EJ asks to speak to Sami alone. In spite of
Rafe's protests, she sends him home with the kids. Elvis explains that he's not
ready to deal with something like this. Sami reminds him that they are all
suffering. When he tries to leave, she demands to know what is going on. He
tells her it's nothing but then picks a note out of his pocket. "I think Sydney
is alive," he says. Sami nearly hyperventilates.
Next on Days of Our Lives:
"Can I say something
to you?" Daniel asks Melanie.
"The more I think about it, the more I am convinced that EJ is up to something,"
Rafe tells his sister.
"He deserves to know the truth," Sami tells EJ.
