Bedroom at Maggies house:
Chloe and Daniel are getting dressed for the television show shoot. Chloe starts to head for the door but Daniel stops her. Daniel wants to explain his earlier comment about it being fate for them to be together but Chloe interrupts him. Chloe insists she understands what Daniel meant by his comment. Daniel tells Chloe that he does respect her desire to fight for her marriage to Lucas. Chloe starts to head for the door but Daniel calls for her to stop. Chloe turns back to Daniel looking hopeful but Daniel moves in close as he explains that he only called her back because the back zipper on her dress was undone. Chloe breathes a sigh of relief and Daniel steps behind her to help pull up the zipper. Kate peeks through the door in time to see Daniel zipping up Chloes dress. Kate sighs angrily and walks away.
Lucas, alone, looks at his watch and complains that the shoot is taking too long. He also complains that he is starving and searches the contents of the fridge for a snack. Not finding anything he wants, Lucas walks across the room and spots the plate of poisoned snacks left unattended on the table. Lucas feels that since hes the producer, no one will mind if he takes one egg off the plate to eat. Lucas holds up the egg and admires it.
Outside the pub:
Will is leaving the pub as Rafe walks up. Rafe stops Will but Will doesnt want to stick around and talk. Rafe insists but Will is still hesitant since he knows Rafe will want to talk about Sami. Rafe tries a different approach by referring to how EJ has forced Sami to give him custody of Johnny. Will isnt fazed by Rafes attempt to paint the DiMeras as murderers because Will feels Johnny would still be better off with them than with Sami.
Nicole is exhausted from the long emotional day. Stefano walks in and confirms that Sydney has now fallen asleep. Nicole takes offense when Stefano claims that all the pain and anger was for nothing. Stefano points out that EJ is grieving over a child that wasnt really his but Nicole points out that Sami loved Grace even though Grace wasnt technically her child either. Stefano would rather focus on how Johnny is now in EJs custody and they no longer have to deal with Sami. Nicole delights in the thought of Sami being in pain with EJ pouring salt in her wounds, a situation that works in their favor.
Kiriakis mansion (back patio):
Sami begs Philip and Stephanie to help turn EJ in for hiring Owen to kidnap Stephanie so that she can get Johnny back. Philip tries to placate Sami but Sami continues her heartfelt plea. Stephanie looks nervous but still claims that she doesnt know how to help Sami. Sami takes out her cell phone and holds it out to Stephanie, imploring her to call Bo and tell the truth about EJ hiring Owen to kidnap her. Stephanie continues to look nervous while Philip glances back and forth between Sami, Stephanie, and the phone.
Bedroom at Maggies house:
Chloe becomes worried that Kate might have seen Daniel zipping up her dress and gone off thinking something happened between them. Daniel points out that he and Chloe have had many opportunities lately for something to happen but have refrained from acting on those impulses. Chloe doesnt feel like they should be proud of themselves for refraining. Daniel would rather refer to it as feeling relieved that theyd passed such a test. From downstairs, they hear Kate yelling in horror.
Outside of Pub:
Rafe is offended at Wills comment. Will points out that ever since meeting Sami, Rafe has told a lot more lies than hes ever had. Rafe claims hes only trying to help Will but Will lumps Rafe in with all the other losers Sami gets to do her dirty work for her. Will starts to turn away but Rafe tries to stop him. Will spins back around with his arm raised in an attempt to hit Rafe but Rafe grabs Wills arm before he can connect. Rafe lowers Wills arm and looks at him with anger and shock.
Kiriakis mansion (back patio):
Philip tries again to placate Sami but Sami remains steadfast. Philip tries to convince Sami that Stephanie shouldnt have to relive what Owen did to her because it would be too traumatizing but Sami is too focused on EJ being behind the kidnapping. Henderson walks in to tell Philip that there is a business call for him. Philip argues with Henderson about taking a message and Henderson finally gives up and heads back inside. Sami calls Philip on his reluctance to leave Stephanie alone with Sami. Stephanie tells Philip that its okay to go take the call and Philip leaves. Sami plays on the fact that she and Stephanie are family and asks her to consider how she wouldnt think twice if this were her baby brother Joe. Tears roll down Samis cheeks as Stephanie insists that she does want to help her keep Johnny away from EJ.
Kate yells at Lucas to stop before eating the egg. Lucas balks and considers Kates demand absurd. Kate is flustered, as she quickly comes up with the excuse that the egg shouldnt be eaten because it is a prop. Lucas doesnt care and raises the egg to his mouth to eat it. Kate knocks the egg to the floor and smashes it with her shoe. Lucas complains that his hand is now covered in egg too. Kate takes the plate to the sink and washes all the eggs as Daniel and Chloe come in to find out what happened. Lucas refers to Kate as the mayor of crazy town. Daniel asks Kate what the problem is. Lucas jokingly asks if the eggs were poisoned and Kate whips around to look at them in horror.
Stefano feels that Sami got what she deserved. Stefano asks where EJ and Johnny are and Nicole explains that EJ took Johnny to his day camp so EJ could spend the time explaining the new custody arrangements to Johnny. Stefano hopes this means that EJ will make it clear that Sami is to have nothing to do with Johnny anymore. Nicole points out that Sami still would have to pick up Allie from the same day camp and wouldnt be able to simply ignore Johnny. Stefano wants to find a new day camp for Johnny then but Nicole doesnt want Johnny to be separated from Allie too. Stefano complains that Nicole is too late to be developing a conscience.
Will pulls his arm back. Rafe gives Will the chance to hit him but Will remains stoic. Rafe points out that they love the same person in Sami. Rafe tells Will to be mad at him instead of Sami because Sami doesnt need that right now. Will quips that he cant say hes no longer mad at Sami because that would be a lie too. Rafe suggests that Will simply tell her the truth about loving her.
