At the DiMera mansion, Nicole flashes back to her black and white nineteen-thirties fantasy. She suffocates Sami in her bedroom. She takes the pillow off of Samis face. She stares straight ahead, seemingly dead. Suddenly, she sits up and starts choking Nicole. Nicole comes back to the present and sighs. She knocks her drink over, shaking.
In her fantasy, Lucas sits in his office. He thinks about catching Chloe with Phillip last night. He admits to himself that it hurt. Without those glasses and that bun, Chloe is one hot tomato. Even though hes married, he thought Chloe was someone he could trust. Not like his two-timing floozy of a wife. Lucas pours a drink and sips it. Finding out she stepped out on him hurt, but not as much as seeing Philly kiss Chloe. We flash back to Lucas walking in while the two kiss. Chloe sees him and gasps.
Nicole pushes Sami back on the bed, wondering how many times she has to kill her. She smothers Sami with a pillow a second time. Sami kicks and struggles. She stops moving. Nicole sighs, wondering if she is really dead this time. She doesnt think she can go a second round. Sami is motionless. Nicole gets up, satisfied. She thinks she looks better than Sami ever did. Anyhow, this is what she gets. No one messes with her man and gets away with it. A door slams nearby. Nicole gasps, saying that must be EJ.
Nicole comes back to the present, thinking that she has to get away with this, since its her fantasy. She goes back to the past where Nicole is dragging Samis body behind her full-length mirror. EJ comes in, calling Samis name. Nicole says she isnt who he expected. She thought he was going out of town. He says he is, he just forgot something. Nicole thinks it must be his mistress. She says Sami Horton isnt here, and she isnt coming, either. Nicole asks if he is going to deny it. He says theres no point, since hes caught. Nicole asks if she wasnt woman enough for him. He says that he loves her. She walks over to the balcony, wondering why he cheated on her. He says its just the way he is. She should have known that when she stole him from Mabel. Nicole thinks shes good for him. He agrees, but he cant stay faithful. This isnt her fault, its his. Hes a no-good lousy bum, a grifter. She doesnt deserve him. Nicole doesnt think hes so bad. She thinks shes the right woman for him--definitely better than that floozy he was meeting here and planning to run away with. EJ explodes. Doesnt she understand? He would have cheated on her in time, too. Nicole guesses this was all for nothing. EJ asks what she did. She stares at Samis legs poking out from behind the mirror.
Chloe tries to explain, but Lucas tells her theres no need. She doesnt work for him anymore. She can do whatever she wants. Phillip asks if Lucas has a bone to pick. He heard she and Lucas had a relationship. Lucas says it was nothing. Besides, hes a married man. Chloe says that she doesnt fool around with married man, but assures Lucas that what he walked in on wasnt what it seemed. He says he knows what he walked in on and heads outside. Chloe starts to follow, but Phillip stops her. He thought she didnt date married men. She says she is in love with Lucas, not him. The only reason she quit her job was because she couldnt stand to be so close to him everyday and hiding her feelings. Phillip thinks shes doing a pretty bad job. He can tell how she feels about Lucas, and how he feels about her. Chloe says that she realizes that leaving was a big mistake. Phillip tells her going after Lucas is a mistake. Phillip can give her everything he cant. Chloe says she doesnt care about money. Phillip reminds her she was singing a different tune just before he offered her a job. Chloe insists that she will be fine. Phillip thinks shell be eating soup down at the mission. He tells her to go get dressed for the first show, and to wear something tight and low. Chloe runs off.
EJ asks Nicole if Sami was here when she got here. Did she do something to her? Nicole denies that Sami was here or that she did anything. She would have, though, if she thought she would get EJ back. EJ thinks shes a real hellion. She thought that was what he liked about her. He says it was that, and the fact that shes a real class act. Shes too good for the likes of him. She never should have married him. She asks him to stay. He says he has to go. Hes sorry, but those are the breaks. Nicole begs him not to leave. EJ heads out. Nicole sighs. Shes down, but shes not out. She just has to figure out how to get that hot broken sucker of a shamus to do her dirty work. We pan down to Samis motionless body.
Lucas comes back to his own office, thinking about what a horrible day it has been. He thinks he deserves a drink and pours himself one, thinking that he got jilted by two dames in one day. Maybe he should just give it all up and go join the French foreign legion. No dames over there, just sand and camels. His phone rings just then. Its Nicole, telling him that she took care of Sami. Lucas doesnt understand. Nicole tells him to come over and shell show him. She gives him the address, saying she did this for both of them, and hangs up.
Chloe practices her piece in the empty club. Phillip comes in and listens. She asks if he needs anything. He knows she thinks hes going to make a play for her. He assures her that he isnt going to make her do anything she doesnt want to do. He isnt that kind of guy. She worries that hell fire her if she doesnt play ball. Phillip says he wont. The customers love her, and hes been making more money than ever since she started. Chloe says she cant go back to Lucas anyway, now that he knows how she feels about him. Phillip thinks they might be able to work things out. Chloe knows Lucas wont leave his wife. Phillip thinks she needs some way to get over him. Chloe doesnt think it will be easy. Phillip doesnt think anything in life is easy. He kisses her.
Lucas comes into Nicoles room to find her filing her nails. He wants to know whats going on. What did she mean when she said she took care of Sami? Nicole offers to make him a drink, saying hell need one. He grabs her by the shoulders. What has she done? Where is his wife? Nicole shows him Samis body. Lucas cradles her in his arms, saying he isnt taking the rap for this. Nicole shrugs. There isnt much he can do. She came to him because his wife was sleeping with her husband. She was murdered in Nicole and EJs apartment. Lucas thinks shed be as much of a suspect. She laughs. He has clearly forgotten who she and her father are. Lucas might get the electric chair, or worse, life. Lucas reminds Nicole that she didnt have to kill Sami. She says she couldnt help it. Sami gave her lip and she got out of control. She wants Lucas to help her hide the body. Lucas refuses. Hes not dumping his wife in the river. She didnt deserve this. Nicole thinks its a little late. Lucas pulls a gun on her. He thinks its time she paid for what she did. Nicole wonders if he is man enough to pull the trigger.
Phillip pulls away. She asks whats wrong. He says that he wants her, but he wants her to want him. Chloe says he is right. She is in love with Lucas. She thanks Phillip for being a better lug than she thought. She gets up to leave. Phillip tells her he meant what he said. If she walks out that door, shes not welcome back. Chloe rips up her music. His customers deserve better than someone who only sings the blues. Phillip hopes she finds a way to forget about them. She tells Chloe to go after Lucas. She thanks him, kisses him on the cheek, and leaves. EJ comes in afterwards, asking for a whiskey. Phillip pours and asks him why hes here so early and alone. Wheres the little twist he brought in the other night? EJ says that they are supposed to be going away together today, but she never showed. Phillip guesses she ditched him. EJ says no piece of skirt has ever ditched him. He thinks something happened to her. He doesnt know what, but he has a bad feeling about it.
Nicole thinks Lucas has a big gun. Lucas thinks she should see the size of the hole it makes. She tells him to go ahead and plug her if hes going to do it. She wants him to. He puts the gun away, saying he doesnt rub out dames, no matter how much they deserve it. Nicole wonders what she is going to do now. Lucas doesnt know or care. Nicole wails that she has nothing left to live for. Lucas shrugs. If she wants to take care of that, shell have to do it on her own. Lucas offers her his spare piece. It has no serial numbers and cant be traced. She asks what she should do with it. He says thats up to her and leaves, tossing the gun on the bed. Nicole picks it up and stares at it.
Chloe heads into Lucas office, but he isnt there. Shes sure she lost any chance she had to be with him. We pan in on a photo of Sami as Chloe sighs and stares out the window.
EJ tells Phillip that he cant imagine what happened to Sami. Phillip tells him to clam up as Nicole comes in. He asks what shes doing here. He told her they were through. Nicole says she knows, but theres something she has to tell him.
Chloe leans out the window, marveling at how high it is. Just then, Lucas comes in and rushes over, telling her not to do it. He hauls her away from the window. Chloe says she was just climbing out onto the fire escape. She could never jump, no matter how much she wants to. Lucas wants to know whats wrong, but shes hesitant to burden him with her problems. Finally, she admits that she quit her job. Lucas assumes Philly K. put the moves on her. She says no, thought she knows he wanted to. He was nothing but a swell gent the whole time she worked for him. Lucas asks why she left, then. She says its because she had everything but him. He is the only man for her. Lucas says thats music to his ears and pulls her in for a kiss. She pulls back, asking about his wife.
Phillip makes Nicole a manhattan and heads off to let her and EJ talk. He tells her to make it quick, as he has a train to catch. Nicole tells him his girlfriend isnt coming with him. EJ asks what she said to her. Nicole admits she didnt say much. She killed her. EJ laughs. Hes not falling for that. Nicole says she did. She struggled a lot, and took a long time to die, but shed do it again if she had to. She cant stand seeing EJ with another woman. He thinks Nicole is crazy. She says she is crazy for him. Now that Sami is out of the picture, its just the two of them. She wants another chance. EJ says it isnt going to happen. Nicole guesses she has no choice. She goes over to her purse and pulls out the gun Lucas left her. She tells EJ that if he wont be with her, then she is going to have to shoot him and then herself. Is it going to me him and her or death? EJ says it will be her, of course. He loves her and always has. He was only shacking up with that cheap tart because Nicole took him for granted. She apologizes. EJ takes the gun from her, assuring her that he meant what he said. He cant believe she killed for him. No one has ever loved him that much. She says she does. He asks what she did with the body, and she tells him she dumped it in a trash bin behind Samis building. Was that stupid? EJ says no, but it was impulsive. He tells her he loves her, and says that she has to get out of Salem. Theyre going to find the body pretty soon and come looking for her. He has to keep her safe. Nicole asks if he will come with her. He says he will, of course, but they have to go pack. He hauls her out of the club, leaving Lucas gun behind.
Lucas tells Chloe that theres one thing he has to do before he leaves. Chloe offers to help him pack. Lucas says that he has to make a phone call.
Nicole and EJ start packing back at their place. She cant believe he loves her, and she cant believe she forgave his straying. She admits Sami paid for both their sins. He thinks Sami deserved it. She only seduced him to get her hands on Nicoles money. He hugs her, saying that he wont be taken in like that again. Its just going to be him and her together--forever. She asks him to prove it. He kisses her. Nicole comes back to the present, wondering if EJ would love her if Sami was out of the picture. She decides any hope for her and EJ is nothing but a fantasy.
Back in their bedroom, Nicole and EJ being to undress each other. A knock sounds at the door. EJ offers to get it, thinking its the cabbie. Instead, Roman and Abe bust in, asking if shes going somewhere. She says she and her husband are going on vacation. Abe says shes going away, but not on vacation. Roman tells her they are here to arrest her for the murder of Samantha Horton. EJ and Nicole exchange glances.
Chloe asks Lucas if he turned Nicole in. He says he had to. Sami may have been a lying tramp, but she was his wife. He had to blow the whistle on her murderer. Chloe thinks it took guts. Lucas says he has those. Its lucky breaks he has trouble with, but not so much now that she is around. Chloe knows they will be happy. She didnt think she could love him anymore, but she does. Lucas says he isnt looking for medal, just a fresh start. Hes looking for someone he can trust, and he has the feeling that someone is her. Chloe beams.
Nicole plays dumb, asking who Sami is. Roman tells her the jig is up. They received a phone call. They know Sami was sleeping with EJs husband. EJ swears its a damnable lie. Abe tells them the caller also told them where to find the body. Roman says they found a locket on Samis body with her and EJs picture in it. Roman is fairly sure theyll find the victims prints in the house, and Nicoles prints on the body. Its time for her to go downtown.
Lucas and Chloe leave his office with a few boxes.
Nicole tells Roman and Abe that her daddy wont let them get away with this. They tell her that they have plenty on her daddy. They can use it, and he wont want that kind of scandal. Nicole begs EJ to help her as he calmly lights a cigarette. She begs him to wait for her, at least. EJ says he is sorry, but he isnt that kind of guy. Roman says there wont be much to wait for. Nicole is going to the electric chair. She pleads as they drag her off. EJ takes a wad of bills out of Nicoles purse and smiles. Back in the present, Nicole groans. She cant even get EJ in her own imagination. She heads off, saying she has to find out whats going on at the hospital.
Stefano asks, Have you completed your assignment?
John screams at EJ/Santo, I dont need her! His own voice comes from behind him, Well, youre wrong, John. And thats a fact.
An unseen woman asks Marlena, Have you missed me? She gasps, You!
