At the DiMera mansion, Sami comes downstairs to find EJ working. She asks if he could sleep, and he explains that he was hungry. Sami admits that she is, too. EJ is visibly disappointed as he hands over a sandwich. He thought she might have come down to apologize for saying she didnt like kissing him. Sami snorts.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Chloe finds Victor sifting through some papers. He asks her what the hell shes doing there. He had Henderson pack her bags. Chloe sneers. She had Henderson unpack them immediately. She just came down for a drink. Victor tells her to enjoy it, as shes shortly going to be charged with trespassing.
Medical personnel swarm around Kayla, who is groaning in a hospital bed. She cries that its too soon. Dr. Elman notes that she is dilated three centimeters. Kayla begs her to stop the contractions.
Bo and Hope wait outside her room and fret. Hope makes a call. Bo tries to stop her, saying its too soon to call Caroline. Hope says that she isnt.
At Steve and Kaylas place, Chelsea and Stephanie snack on popcorn and watch TV. Chelsea admires the rear of some of the men on TV. That reminds Stephanie of Daniel and she asks if Chelsea has seen him. Chelsea says that Daniel doesnt see a future with her, but she plans on changing his mind. Hope calls Stephanie and tells her that her mom is going into labor. Stephanie flips. Its too soon for the baby to come!
Dr. Elman tells Kayla that she is doing everything she can to stop the contractions. Theyve put a drug in her IV that will help. Kayla frets about the baby coming early as Elman informs neonatology to be ready for a new baby. Steve tries to comfort Kayla as she moans and groans.
Sami says she would rather have bamboo jammed into her fingernails than kiss EJ again. He laughs. So it was like purgatory, eh? Anyway, he has to get to bed, since he has an appointment with Nicole in the morning. Sami grumbles and says he should say hello to the money-grubbing bitch for her. Before EJ goes to bed, Sami wants to discuss possible preschools for the twins. EJ agrees. They can start thinking about secondary school and college as well. Before he can finish, his phone rings. Someone from Lucas prison is on the line.
Chloe tells Victor that she is family, whether he likes it or not. Victor huffs. She is the worst thing that has ever happened to his family. Chloe disagrees. She thinks Nicole and her dog would fill that role. Victor tells her she isnt wanted here. Why is she trying to force herself on himself and Phillip? Chloe says she does it because she can. Besides, why should she show him any respect after what he did? He made it look like she killed Brady. Victor thought Brady was divorcing her. What in the hell is she still doing sticking around? Phillip walks in and tells Victor that he invited her.
Stephanie tells Chelsea that her mom is going into labor. The girls head off for the hospital in a panic.
Bo and Hope head into Kaylas room as she comes back from an ultrasound. Elman assures Kayla that the baby isnt under and duress. She just needs to relax. One of the nurses tells Elman that Kayla is dilated to four centimeters. Steve sighs and tells the baby to slow down. He pulls Lexie aside and asks if the baby can survive if it comes now. Lexie assures him that theyre doing everything they can to make sure the baby will be safe if it arrives.
EJ briefly talks to the warden, and then hangs up. Sami asks if Lucas is coming home.
Phillip tells Victor that Chloe is staying. Victor demands to speak to Phillip alone and throws Chloe a withering glance. She huffs off. Phillip cant believe Victor. He can justify anything, cant he? Hes been keeping secrets about his grandson. Victor sneers. What about the secrets Phillip has been keeping from him?
Stephanie and Chelsea arrive at the hospital and Hope fills them in on Kayla and the babys conditions. Bo rushes off to see if Stephanie can see her mom.
Kayla groans and frets. She worries that the baby will die if it comes now. Steve tries to reassure her.
EJ apologizes to Sami. The warden called to tell him that Lucas didnt make the cut for the list. He wont be coming home. Samis face falls.
Victor tells Phillip that he knows all about the man Phillip hired to break into the DiMera mansion. Phillip smiles and nods. He was able to get the disc, but its encrypted. Victor wonders hoe he knew about the disc, and Phillip mysteriously replies that he has been monitoring Johns mansion. He knows it has something to do with what Stefano did to John, but they wont know more until the disc can be decrypted. Phillip has men on it right now. Victor asks what he will do about Chloe. Phillip assures Victor that he can handle her. Victor nods. Actually, he has to admit that Phillip has been highly successful in handling their business affairs. Victor was thinking that its time for him to handle some more.
Stephanie goes in to see her mom, and talks worriedly with the doctor. Kayla moans and thrashes.
Sami sighs. She should have known better than to get her hopes up. EJ asks if she would rather he hadnt done anything. She says no, and he promises her to keep trying to get Lucas out. Sami doesnt see the point. She just needs to face the fact that he isnt coming back and that Allie will grow up without a father. She does appreciate the help EJ has given her. EJ simpers. Without trying to sound inappropriate, theres nothing he wouldnt do for her. Sami thanks him for comforting her. EJ sighs. He wants her to know hat he doesnt care what kind of relationship they have. She doesnt have to pretend anymore. Sami cries.
Victor explains that he wants Phillip to take over some more of the operations. Phillip is confused. He thought Victor liked keeping his hand in things. Victor explains that he is just exhaustedphysically and emotionally. He sees that Phillip is capable of getting his hands dirty, so hes giving him more control. Phillip is skeptical. It sounds like Victor is retiring. Victor assures him that that isnt so. Hes just watching the game from farther back these days. Phillip swears that he wont let him down.
Some nurses wheel an incubator into Kaylas room. At this point, shes dilated nine centimeters. The baby is coming, and theres nothing they can do. Kayla groans as the doctor encourages her to push. Kayla cries that its too soon, but she can feel the baby coming. She wails. Steve frets.
Victor worried that Phillip might not be up to running the business after he came home from war. He thought Phillip might not want to get his hands dirty, so he imagined a career in politics for him. Phillip smiles. If he goes into politics, he isnt sure he has enough body parts left to get dirty. Victor talks about Belle and Shawn, and Phillip tells him that he has accepted Belles decision. He wants her to be happy. Victor thinks Phillip needs to start focusing on his own happiness. He excuses himself. Phillip sighs deeply.
Sami apologizes for being so weepy. She has always hated girls that would cry at the drop of a hat. EJ tells her that she has every reason to be upset. Besides, she doesnt cry all the time. Shes just angry right now. Sami says she thinks shes upset about not having control over her own life. EJ says she does have control over her lifeits her lack of control over others lives that is upsetting her. Anyway, he has to go to bed, as he agreed to play tennis with Nicole in the morning. Sami grumbles. What does he possibly see in Nicole? EJ says its what Nicole sees in him. She thinks he is all that. Sami wonders what woman wouldnt think that. EJ blushes. Sami, for one.
Bo brings Hope some water. Chelsea stumbles away, blank-eyed. Bo asks Hope if she is ok, but Hope doesnt think she is taking things very well. Bo heads over to reassure her. Hope remembers Chelsea telling her that her infertility was justice for killing Zach. Hope remembers telling her that it was Zachs time to go.
Kayla moans and groans. Elman announces that the baby is crowning. Kayla shrieks with pain and continues to push.
Sami doesnt get it. Is he trying to confuse her? EJ sighs and says no. He realizes that their marriage is a sham. Since the visa debacle is finished, where do they go from here? Sami isnt sure. EJ says that he just wants to know where he stands. If she doesnt want to be with him, thats fine, but he needs to know. Right now, he just feels like Sami is sending him mixed signals. Sami doesnt understand. He reminds her that she has been telling him that she doesnt care about him, yet she is clearly jealous of Nicole. If she is as jealous as she seems, she must have a reasona reason why he shouldnt be with Nicole.
Victor hands Phillip a leather portfolio. This is his legacy and his future. He tells Phillip that he has earned it.
Hope and Bo fill Chelsea in on Martinos death. Chelsea worries about Bo. She cant believe he would put himself in danger so soon after their surgeries. Bo changes the subject, saying they all have more important things to worry about.
Kayla delivers a tiny baby boy. The doctor takes him and hustles him off to the incubator. Kayla nukes. Why isnt her baby crying? Steve tries to comfort her without becoming completely unglued himself.
Chloe comes back to find Phillip sifting through the papers in the portfolio. She asks if she should leave, but Phillip wants her to stay. He explains that Victor handed over almost complete control of the Kiriakis empire to him. Chloe is surprised. Brady certainly wouldnt approve, but they arent together, so she doesnt care what he thinks. She sidles up to Phillip and grins. Hes rich and handsome. Thats a potent combination. Phillip grins. She forgot powerful. Chloe flirts. Does that mean she shouldnt cross him? Phillip glares, and then grins broadly.
EJ asks Sami what its going to be. Sami says that EJ is her husband, and she isnt letting that slut Nicole sink her claws into him. EJ asks what she is going to do about it. Sami moves in closer and closer. Finally, she kisses EJ. She stops, and then goes back for more.
Kayla cries as her son is wheeled off to neonatal care. What is wrong with her baby? Lexie tells her that the baby isnt breathing. Kayla goes ballistic.
Mickey asks Lucas, You're the reason I'm here. How would you like to get out of Statesville and go home?
EJ tells Sami, It's just the two of us. So whatever happens now is up to you.
Steve says, I want to go down there and see our baby boy. Lexie replies, Im sorry, Steve, you can't go either.
