Outside the deans office, Cordy tells the girls she cant testify. She came here, and thought she could do it, but now she cant face him. The dean comes out and asks to start the hearing. Billie pleads for a few more minutes. Carmen and Sloan show up. Cordy whines. She has really let them all down. Chelsea and the other girls think she shouldnt let Ford intimidate her. Chelsea kind of knows what she went through. When she worked at the hospital, an older doctor took her out to dinner and tried to take advantage of her afterwards. Meanwhile, Stephanie flashes back to Ford raping her. Chelsea had a really hard time sleeping and trusting people afterwards. It helped a lot when she reported it. Cordy asks if anyone believed Chelsea. She says they did, and the doctor was fired. Chelsea knows it feels like the odds are stacked against her, but Cordy has to try.
At her apartment, Sami tells Colleen to go away. Colleen wont leave until Sami promises to be true to herself. Sami is the only one who can get through to EJ and make him listen. Sami already tried. He wouldnt listen. Why is he even her responsibility? He doesnt want her around. He told her to go home to Lucas. Colleen tells her its a load of rubbish. EJ wants her.
In EJs hospital room, Dr. Berman asks a nurse to escort Stefano out. Stefano protests, but the doctor tells him he doesnt want to be here. Stefano wanders out as a team works on EJ. Stefano sits in the waiting area and prays to God to save his son. Tony walks up and smirks, What makes you think he's going to listen to you? Stefano sighs. EJ is not well. He needs their prayers. Tony thinks he needs a real father. Dr. Berman comes out. They are stabilizing EJs fever and trying to bring down the infection with antibiotics. If it works, he has a good chance of pulling through. He leaves. Stefano curses and moans. Why is Elvis surrendering? He has given up hope. That is why Stefano called Tony. He can help restore Elvis will to live. Tony thinks this is Stefanos job. After all, he was the one that almost destroyed EJs life. Stefano says Elvis has to take over the empire. Tony asks if he means the vendetta. Stefano sulks, To hell with the vendetta. Tony scoffs. If he had said that years ago, EJ would be fine right now. Kate rushes over. Stefano is glad she is here. He wants her to talk to Elvis. Stefano has tried, but he wont listen. Kate thinks this is a job for Sami. Stefano doesnt want to hear her name. She is Elvis wife, and she walked out on him. Kate thinks she is the last person EJ wants to see right now. She held a gun on him. Stefano thinks this is a way she can redeem herself. Kate agrees, but tells Stefano not to blame her if he dies. Tony smirks. How does it feel to be in the twilight of your life and realize what a complete fiasco it is?
Sami doesnt think EJ wants her. If he did, he would have wanted her to stay. She is finally through with EJ, and its what they both want. Colleen tells her to stop fooling herself. She is afraid of what she feels for EJ, thats all. Sami doesnt think Colleen knows her. Colleen smiles sadly. They are two peas in a pod. Sami waves her off. She wants her to go away. Colleen wont leave until Sami listens, so Sami walks over to the CD player and blasts it. Lucas comes barreling out of the bedroom and tells her to keep it down. He sees her peaked face and backtracks. Is something wrong? Phillip shows up just then. Lucas takes him out in the hallway to talk. Colleen twists the knife and asks Sami if she could live with herself if EJ dies.
Outside, Phillip asks Lucas whats going on. Lucas tells him Kate said he had her gun. Lucas needs it back. Phillips not giving him anything until Lucas tells him why he wants it.
Morgan and Carmen encourage Cordy. She cant let Ford get away with this. Billie stops them. Cordy needs to make this decision on her own. However, they do have reason to believe Ford has done this before. Hell keep doing it until someone comes forward. Cordy doesnt think this is fair. If there are other girls, why dont they do something? Chelsea thinks that if somebody with Cordys reputation told the dean what happened to her, he would have no choice but to believe her. Cordy saw how close the dean is with Fords dad. Hell never believe her. Cordy makes more excuses. Her family doesnt have any money to fight this, and everyone will stare at her in school. The girls work on her. Stephanies uncle is a lawyer. He might take the case free of charge. Morgan jumps in. The other students wont be staring at her. She didnt do anything wrong. Cordy sighs. Why is she even trying to explain this? None of them know what she is going through. Stephanie pipes up, I do. Chelsea whispers, OMG. Stephanie says it happened to her mom a long time ago. She had the same concerns Cordy had, but she pressed charges anyway. Carmen and Sloan want her to take a stand against Ford. She cant be a victim anymore. Cordy nods. Shell do it. Just then, Ford pokes his head out of the deans office. He glares at Cordy. She moans. She just cant do this.
Sami tries to convince herself Colleen is a figment of her imagination. Colleen sighs. Part of Sami wants her to be here, or she wouldnt be. Part of her wants to help EJ, too. Now is not the time to be deceiving herself.
Lucas tells Phillip the gun belongs to him. He gave it to Kate for protection, and now he wants it back. Phillip wonders if Kate had anything to do with EJs shooting. Phillip looks closely at Lucas. Maybe shes even protecting someone. Lucas tells Phillip he was babysitting the twins during the wedding. He really doesnt have time to argue about this. He just wants the gun back. It will be better if he gets rid of it. Phillip says it looks like he did Lucas a big favor, then. He already got rid of the gun.
Kate walks into EJs room and tells him he gave Stefano quite a scare. She is really sorry for threatening them the day before. She was very upset, but she would never hurt EJ or Stefano. She hopes he knows that. She wishes she could do something for him. EJ whispers. He has something he wants Kate to bring him.
The dean comes out and tells them time is up. Cordy has had plenty of time to prepare herself for the hearing. Billie grumbles. Cordy was fine until Ford intimidated her. He stood in the doorway and stared her down. The dean wasnt aware that he did that at all. Billie thinks it sounds like the dean has already made up his mind. Crawford thinks he has already wasted enough time here this morning. If no one will testify against Ford, then they cannot have a hearing. Morgan glares. She would be more than happy to testify against him.
Sami insists that she doesnt have feelings for EJ. Colleen notes that she is still wearing her wedding ring. Sami claims its stuck on her finger. Colleen knows Sami doesnt want EJ to die. Sami doesnt know what she is supposed to do. Its not as if she has some sort of control over EJ. Colleen wants her to go to him and tell him she loves him. Sami thinks shes crazy, but Colleen tells her that if EJ lives, Stefano would be grateful for the rest of his life. Is that not worth three little words?
Kate tells EJ she can get Sami on the phone if he wants. EJ doesnt want her. Her father told him to take the things he wanted. He took Samantha, and look what happened. He cant force her to love him. Kate wants to try to get Sami down her, but EJ stops her. He wants his father. Stefanos the only one he can count on.
Morgan tells Crawford that Cordy isnt the only girl his son attacked. She wants to testify, if that is ok. The dean finds this all highly unusual, but he invites Morgan into his office for a chat before the hearing begins. Cordy thanks her. Morgan says its nothing. Sisters have to stick together. Chelsea, Sloan, and Carmen agree to go with Morgan for support. Stephanie wants to stay outside with Cordy. Stephanie tells Chelsea to make sure Ford doesnt walk.
Sami refuses to lie to EJ. Colleen reminds her she is doing all this to protect her family. Sami does want that, but she isnt going to tell EJ she loves him when she doesnt. Even if she did tell him, he wouldnt believe it. He knows she loves Lucas. Colleen tells her to quit making excuses and o to EJ. Sami cant. Colleen reminds her that lying to EJ wont change her feelings for Lucas. Or is that the very thing she is afraid of?
Phillip tells Lucas he tossed the gun in a lake. Lucas curses. Phillip doesnt get it. Wouldnt Lucas have done the same thing? Phillip thinks he wants it to see if it has been fired. Lucas tells Phillip about the bullet hole in Samis dress. He fears that she may have been a target. Phillip asks if Lucas thinks Kate did that. Lucas doesnt know what to think, but this is killing him. He needs to know if that gun was fired.
Stephanie asks Billie if they have a chance. Billie isnt sure. Stephanie whines. This is so unfair. Why do guys always get away with stuff like this? Billie sighs. Its just that date rape is hard to prove. Prestigious universities like this one usually want to keep this kind of stuff swept under the rug. Stephanie sighs. The dean and Crawford are going to rip Morgan apart. No wonder Cordy didnt want to do this. Billie wants her to stay there and be string for Cordy. Billie has to go check on Jett.
Morgan rehashes her story before the dean and Fords father. They had a party, but Morgan drank soda all night. Ford was drunk and threatening to drive, so Morgan took his keys and drove him home herself. He drugged her drink and then tried to rape her. Crawford scoffs. So, supposedly, Ford was so drunk he could barely stand, but he suddenly sobered up enough to drug and rape Morgan? Morgan glares. Obviously, Ford was faking being drunk to get her over to his place. Crawford reminds her she has no proof Ford drugged her drunk. Morgan tells him everyone at the party saw Ford trying to violate her on his webcam. Crawford says they already have testimony from one of the partygoers. The young man stated that he saw nothing that couldnt be construed as consensual. Chelsea says thats a lie. Crawford grins. If theres anyone that can swear under oath that Ford attempted to rape Morgan, he would love to see them come forward. But no one will, because it is all a lie.
Tony wants Stefano to admit it. If he hadnt been so blinded by revenge Elvis would be fine. Stefano groans. He knew it was a mistake calling Tony. He isnt even a DiMera. Kate comes out and tells Stefano that EJ wants to see him. Stefano rushes into EJs room. He tells Stefano he loves him, but he cant live like this. He needs Stefanos help. Stefano agrees. EJ wants him to get him a gun. Stefano gapes.
Lucas asks Phillip if Kates gun was fired. Phillip doesnt want to say. But this could get complicated. If the DiMeras consider a suspect, she needs protection. Phillip isnt sure Lucas can do that.
Sami tells Colleen that saying I love you isnt some miracle cure that can save a dying man. Colleen says it will, since EJ is willing himself into his grave. As the phone rings, she tells Sami she is EJs only hope. Sami answers. Its Kate. Shes at the hospital, and Sami has to get down there right away. EJ is dying.
Crawford and Ford come out of the deans office smiling. They leave. Stephanie is in shock. They let Ford go? Sloan dejectedly tells her that Crawford twisted everything Morgan said to make it look like Ford was the victim. Morgan sighs. She was apparently drunk and chasing Ford, so the dean said the charges were without merit. Ford is free to go. Chelsea fumes. This is far from being over. Theyre going to make sure that everyone on campus knows what Ford Decker did. Its time for retaliation.
Phillip refuses to tell Lucas anything about the gun until he promises he will stick up for Kate. Lucas wont make any promises. Phillip tells him hell never find out if that gun was fired. Lucas smiles. He thinks he already has a pretty good idea as to whether it was fired or not. Phillip stops him. He knows he and Kate dont exactly get along, and most of the time she deserves what she gets, but not this time. He begs Lucas not to sell her out. Sami comes out. She has to run some errands. Lucas asks her how long she will be gone, but she brushes past him without a word.
Sloan doesnt know if it will work. They couldnt convince the dean Ford was a rapist. Why would it work on someone else? Chelsea mobilizes the sisters. They need a picture of Ford, some paper, and a laser printer. Theyre going to post flyers all over campus. If people dont know hes a rapist now, they will by tomorrow. Theyre reluctant. They could get into trouble, or even kicked out of school. Chelsea keeps urging. If they stick together, people will have to listen to them. They have to do this for Cordy. They all huddle and put their hands in the middle. Stephanie flashes back to Ford raping her.
Lucas has to go inside with the twins. Phillip wants to know if theyre cool. Lucas says he would never deliberately hurt Kate, but if she put a bullet in EJ, theres nothing either one of them can do for her.
Stefano come out of EJs room and tells Kate and Tony Elvis is in there asking for a gun. Its not right for such a young man to be in despair. When he finds out who did this, God help them. Tony advises him to look in the mirror the next time he wants to go after someone. Stefano snaps, Get the hell out of my sight. Tony rolls his eyes and tells Kate to give Elvis his best. Sami rushes in. Is it true? Is EJ dying? Kate tells her EJ has a serious infection. Its touch and go right now. Stefano grumbles. It isnt the infection. Hes lost his will to live. Sami wants to see him. Stefano cautions her not to upset Elvis. She goes inside and apologizes to EJ for fighting with him. He tells her to get out of here and go be with Lucas. He is the one she loves. Sami swallows. What if hes not?
Bo asks Kate, I want the truth this time. Where the hell is the gun?
Shawn comes upon Steve rooting around where he hid his gun. Shawn says, Hey, Steve. Steve coughs and backs away guiltily. Shawn asks, What's, uh, what's going on?
Lucas tells Billie, Give me the name and the number of a good lawyer you know. Billie gapes, Why do you need a lawyer? Lucas snorts, Just trust me.
