Nicole comes back to her hotel room, telling her baby that her pre-natal workout was tough. She heads off for the shower, but a knock sounds at the door. Nicole groans, hoping it isnt the hotel manager. Its EJ, telling her that he has come by to pick her up for their date.
At the DiMera mansion, Stefano reads the paper and chuckles, saying that Abe has made a huge mistake. Just then, John comes in, wanting to talk. Stefano tells him its too early, as he hasnt even had his coffee yet. John thinks Stefano will want to hear this. Stefano grumbles, but acquiesces. John tells him that its over, and that Stefano has won.
Chloe comes to see Marlena in her office. Chloe is sure she is the last person Marlena cares to talk to, but she really needs her help with Lucas. She adds that she could use some advice on what to do.
At the Horton cabin, Lucas tells Sami that he has a meeting to attend, but will be back soon. He asks if she told EJ about the pregnancy, but she says she told him good-bye instead. Lucas doesnt understand. Sami goes on to explain that she told EJ that his having a baby with Nicole is a sign that they arent meant to be. Lucas groans. He tells Sami that he has tried to help her, but shes bound and determined to screw everything up. He tells her she is on her own from now on.
Nicole tells EJ that she didnt realize that their date was this morning, apologizing for how she looks. EJ tells her this was a last-minute decision. He has to go to Chicago to deliver some papers to a client, and heard that her favorite restaurant was there. He grabs Nicole and dances with her, saying that he thought they could take in a show, and go to a museum. He adds that this has been long overdue. Nicole agrees. EJ admits that he has been chasing something that wasnt meant to be for a long time. He isnt sure if he and Nicole are meant to be, but he knows that it will be fun finding out. She asks for a half-hour to make herself as beautiful as possible. EJ says she is already stunning, but agrees to wait for her. Nicole heads into the bathroom, all smiles.
Stefano doesnt think he heard John correctly. John says that the game is over, and Stefano has won. He had an inside track to getting Stefano deposed as CEO, but he has decided to pack it in and hand over all control of the empire to Stefano--effective immediately. Stefano gapes. John tells him he will be out of the mansion by the end of the week. He is sure even Stefano can follow that line of logic.
EJ flips through a magazine while Nicole showers. A knock sounds at the door, and EJ answers. Its the hotel manager with an envelope for Nicole. EJ asks what is going on, and the manager tells EJ that its an eviction notice. Nicole has until one oclock to leave, or her and all of her belongings will be put out on the street.
Sami grumbles about Lucas lack of support. He tells her that he is sorry, but he doesnt approve of what she is doing. In fact, he thinks its the biggest mistake she has ever made. Sami is sick of his lectures. Lucas tells her that she wont be able to hide this pregnancy for long, and Sami admits that she has been thinking of going away for the last couple of months of her pregnancy. Lucas scoffs, saying that EJ will figure it out. Sami doesnt think so. Men are terrible with dates, and he wont put two and two together regarding their tryst and her absence nine months later. Lucas disagrees, saying that night is probably seared in EJs mind. Sami tells Lucas that she has to protect her child from Stefano, but Lucas thinks EJ is capable of doing so. He may be a jerk, but he does care for his children. Sami doesnt think caring is enough. EJ has too much on his plate with Nicole and her baby, so Sami has to protect her kids herself. Lucas knows that EJ and Stefan will find out eventually. They arent stupid, and theyre going to be furious when they learn Sami hid this pregnancy from them. Sami suddenly gets an idea, saying that there is another way. Lucas asks what that is, and she tells him that they could pretend the baby is Lucas. Its her only hope.
John doesnt think Stefano seems as pleased as he should be. Stefano says that he has been thinking, and this whole idea of war between two brothers is silly. Stefano thinks he has made a wise decision, but guesses it wasnt for his benefit. He knows altruism isnt Johns strongest suit, so he wants to know why John has had a sudden change of heart. John says that he is doing this for Marlena. Its what she wants.
Marlena isnt sure that she can help Chloe, as Lucas is practically a part of her family. Chloe says this is really more about her than Lucas. She has a problem, but isnt sure if it is a problem, or if she is just letting her insecurities and paranoia take over. Marlena asks whats going on, and Chloe admits that she thinks Lucas is cheating on her.
Lucas tells Sami that she is insane. He refuses to lie to this child and make him or her think that he is their father. Besides, he is sure EJ wouldnt fall for it. Sami thinks he would. He knows that Sami wanted Lucas back when he caught her and EJ in bed together. He will easily believe that she seduced Lucas that night. Lucas reminds her that she did try to seduce him, but he resisted. He just thinks the whole idea is wrong. Sami doesnt think there anything wrong about trying to protect her child, but Lucas disagrees. It isnt fair to EJ, him, or the baby that she even asked Lucas to do this. Sami starts to cry. Lucas says her tears arent going to make him feel badly enough to change his mind. He knows she is scared, but he cant do this. Sami grumps, saying that he baby is doomed, and it will be all Lucas fault. He blows up, telling her not to lay that guilt trip at his door. None of this is his fault. Sami thinks he is acting this way because he is scared to lose Chloe. Lucas chuckles, saying this has nothing to do with Chloe. It has to do with Sami and her inability to do the right thing. Lucas starts to head off, but Sami stops him, begging him to help. He refuses to have anything to do with her scheming. This is about her distorted sense of right and wrong, not about her kids and their safety. He refuses to help her or be a part of this anymore. He leaves. Sami pouts.
EJ oversees the porter pack Nicoles bags as Nicole comes out of the bathroom, wondering what is going on. EJ tells her she is being evicted and Nicole groans, saying she thought she had until the end of the week to pay the bill. EJ has ordered breakfast and tells Nicole to help herself. She grumbles, blaming this all on Trent. Because of him, she and Pookie are going to be out on the streets. EJ promises that that wont happen. She and Pookie and coming to stay with him.
Sami cries and takes out a phonebook. She circles a number inside, telling herself that this is the only way.
EJ closes the door on the porter as Nicole finishes breakfast. She thanks him for paying her bill, saying that he didnt have to do that. He jokes that he did, seeing as how theyd come after her and she cant afford his legal fees anymore. She tells him she isnt sure about moving into mansion. She feels like she would be imposing, and after all, theres always the Y. EJ tells her that the mansion has many rooms, so its no problem. H insists that he wants to take care of her and the baby. She asks about Sami, and EJ says they are through. He wants Nicole to be able to count on him. Nicole says she has never had to do that before. EJ once again asks her to move in. Nicole makes sure Pookie can come and finally agrees, hugging EJ and thanking him. EJ thinks it might be fun. Nicole asks about Stefano. He explains that he doesnt want him to know yet and asks her to let him handle it. Nicole asks about the date, and EJ tells her they will have to take a rain check. She agrees that they can put it off until after they move in together, and EJ tells her he will send a courier to Chicago. For now, he wants to focus on her and the baby. They leave to go pick up Pookie.
Marlena wonders if Chloe thinks Lucas is cheating on her with Sami. Chloe doesnt knows what else to think. When she came back, they were all settled in together. She isnt trying to blame Sami, but if Lucas is cheating on her, shed want to leave him. She hopes Marlena doesnt think shes trying to pump her for information. Marlena thinks Chloe wouldnt turn down any that she had, though. Chloe sighs, saying that she probably seems pathetic because of her jealousy. Marlena doesnt think so. If she were in Chloes position, she would want to know the truth, too. Unfortunately, even if Marlena knew anything, she couldnt tell her. Chloe admits she should have known better. She apologizes and heads off to figure things out on her own. Marlena suggests she talk to Lucas and Chloe agrees, saying she was worried shed sound needy and possessive if she confronted him. She thanks Marlena for the advice and she wishes Chloe luck. Chloe leaves. Shortly after, John comes in, telling Marlena to stop what shes doing right away. This one is hot off the presses.
Lucas comes back to the Horton cabin, but Sami and the twins arent there. He calls and leaves a message for Sami, asking her to come back so they can talk. He sees the open phone book and sees that Sami has circled the number for the Brookville clinic. Lucas reads that their services include family planning and abortion. He flips out and runs out, wondering what Sami is doing.
Presumably at the Brookville Clinic, a nurse takes Sami into a cubicle, telling her the doctor will be right in. Sami sighs.
Nicole and EJ arrive at the mansion, and Pookie runs upstairs. Nicole yells for her to come down as EJ asks the maid to have Nicoles bags taken to her room. Stefano comes charging out of the living room, wondering what is going on. Nicole tells him that she is moving in.
John tells Marlena that he is hitting the road. Marlena doesnt understand. He explains that he is a changed man. Marlena reminds him that the last time he told her that, he also said he planned on legitimizing the DiMera empire, a thing that cant be done. John says he agrees with her, and that EJ was right about him. He knows he will lose Marlena if he doesnt take action. Something inside him doesnt want that to happen. Marlena asks what he has done, and John tells her that he has given up control of the DiMera empire. He did it because of her.
The nurse tells Sami that the doctor is running a bit behind, but will be with her shortly. She asks if she has someone to wait with her, and Sami admits that she is here alone. The nurse tells her that the clinic offers counseling for women in her position. Sami says she isnt interested. She just wants to get this over with. The nurse says she understands and heads off to look for the doctor.
EJ tells Stefano that Nicole is moving in. Stefano wonders if he has forgotten whose house this is. How dare he bring in some boarder and her mutt? EJ thinks he would be more understanding if he knew what was going on. Nicole thinks they should tell Stefano the truth. Stefano wonders what is going on. EJ wanted to avoid this, but he sees they have no choice. Nicole tells Stefano that she and EJ are having a baby. Stefano claps his hands and exclaims, saying that there will be another DiMera heir.
The nurse tells Sami that the doctor is on his way, and asks her if she has any last minute questions or concerns. Sami sassy she just wants to get this over with. The doctor comes in just then, asking if Sami is ready. She says she is.
Lucas rushes into the clinic, asking if Sami Brady is there. Meanwhile, the doctor tells Sami that what he is about to do might hurt a little. The nurse tells Lucas that she cant divulge that information, and Lucas claims to be her husband. He is trying to stop his wife before its too late. The nurse heads off to see what she can do as Lucas gets a call from Chloe. He asks if he can meet her later as a nurse answers the phone behind him. Chloe overhears and wonders what Lucas is doing at the clinic.
Marlena is flabbergasted that John gave it all up. She thought he couldnt let go of the shipping line. John says he has given it all up for her. Marlena gapes. John smiles, saying it was worth it just to see the look on her face.
Stefano tells Nicole that she is more than welcome here. He will give her one of the nicest suites and make sure Cook makes all of her favorite food. Nicole thanks him for making her feel so welcome, and Stefano tells her that she is now a member the family, and should treat this as her home. Nicole leans over and moans softly. They both ask if she is ok, but she says she is. She claims the baby kicked. EJ puts a hand on her stomach, but doesnt feel anything. Nicole tells Stefano to see if he feels something and he does. He laughs, saying that the baby will be a little hell raiser, based on the kicking alone. EJ looks on uncomfortably.
Marlena tells John how proud she is of him, and he thanks her, telling her that he has to leave. He has a lot of packing to do, as he is moving out of the mansion. Marlena beams. She wants to go for a cup of coffee, but John thinks the sooner he moves out, the better. Before he goes, he hands Marlena the divorce papers, saying that he has signed them. Now he has done everything she asked, and the ball is in her court. John heads off.
Stefano hands out champagne and sparkling cider to celebrate Nicoles pregnancy. He toasts to new life, happiness, and the DiMera dynasty continuing. They all toast.
Lucas tells Chloe that he has to go as the nurse tells him his wife is in the first exam room. Lucas thanks her and hangs up, telling Chloe he cant talk. She hangs up in a huff, wondering why the nurse called Sami Lucas wife. Lucas rushes into the exam room to find Sami in tears. He groans.
EJ asks Nicole, Would you just do me a favor and keep your distance from my father? She replies, Hes our kids grandfather.
Lexie tells Stefano, Either end your association with Marino immediately or your relationship with your grandson will be a thing of the past.
Stephanie tells Max, Im going to strangle her. Melanie retorts, She wouldnt rather put a knife in my back? Max yells, Would you stop it--both of you--right now!
