Casa DiMera, Kristen tells Brady that she's not turning her back on her
family and, if he can't handle it, they should call the wedding off.
This doesn't make sense to him. She explains that he's too good and
she'll hurt him. Kristen begs him to take the exit she's giving him.
He's still confused. Maggie barges in with a wedding gift. Kristen
leaves them alone. Maggie starts prying. Brady tells her that his
father is the problem. He storms out.
JJ interrupts Jenn and Daniel making out at the Horton house. "You sure
are around here a lot," JJ observes. They have a passive-aggressive
conversation and JJ asks if he can play with Parker's train. He heads
upstairs. Jenn hands Daniel her copy of "Revolting Rhymes." He blabs
about his MP3 player. JJ returns and listens as this conversation drags
on. Eventually, he asks if he can borrow his mom's MP3 player but
Daniel lends him his instead. JJ jogs away. After the doctor goes,
Maggie drops in and Jenn talks about how great Daniel is. JJ later
drops by the hospital to see Daniel and explains that his MP3 player
was hit by a truck. He hands him the pieces. "Bummer," he adds.
Lucas drops by the hospital to see Sami and Rafe. "I can't lose him."
she moans to Lucas. She tells him that his mom was sleeping with Rafe.
"She always has a talent for humiliating herself," he says. They argue
about whether or not EJ was involved in the attack. Gabi shows up to
hear this. Sami tells her not to listen to Lucas. He and Sami bicker
about that until she flounces off. Over at the station, Hope is in her
office worrying about Rafe. Kate shows up. The detective wonders why
Kate didn't tell her that she was sleeping with Hernandez. Kate insists
Stefano didn't know until after the attack. Hope questions her about
the relationship. Kate says they didn't talk much and doesn't
appreciate all of the condescending remarks. She walks out. Kate meets
her son at Caffeinated for more condescending remarks about the Rafe
affair. They're both sure that Sami will always suspect EJ. Meanwhile,
Sami heads to the station to answer some questions from Hope. The
detective soon says this repetitive conversation is unconvincing. Gabi
suddenly shows up and says she remembered something. She tells them
about the call EJ got at the pub after the attack. Across town, some
dude reads about Rafe's attack in the paper then crumples it up and
dumps it in the trash. He heads to the hospital with some flowers and
hangs around outside of Rafe's door.
Outside of the pub, Marlena is shocked that John wants a divorce. He
thinks she deserves better. The shrink slaps him for that. "You disgust
me!" she says. He used to be action man, now he's nothing man. She
storms away. He chases her down. They rehash everything that's happened
since Kristen came back. Kristen suddenly pops up. "I guess I'll go,"
Marlena says. She leaves. John tells Kristen about the divorce and
wipes away a solitary tear. Kristen hopes he meets someone new and
walks off. Brady shows up. The two Blacks bicker. "I'm done with this
conversation," John declares. He leaves. Kristen comes back. Brady says
he's not marrying her family, he's marrying her. He thinks she should
become Kristen Black and make him the happiest guy on the earth. She
has to think it over. Brady wanders off and runs into Marlena. She's
sobbing. Back outside of the square, John corners Kristen and asks if
she is still going to marry his son.
