Brady threatens the man, saying that his whole world is going to blow up in his face if he doesnt take that video down.
At the hospital, two candy-stripers stand in a waiting room and watch the video of Melanie and Philip having sex. Cheesy music plays in the background. Stephanie and Nathan walk over. Nathan jokes, asking why they werent invited to the party. Without a word, one of the girls turns the laptop around. Nathan and Stephanie stare at the screen and gape as Melanie and Philip writhe around in bed.
At the pub, Sami kneels down and coos at Sydney, asking if she is ready to go see her mommy. A customer walks in and compliments Sami, telling her how beautiful Sydney is. Sami thanks her, and the woman adds that the baby looks just like Sami. Sami is taken aback.
At Samis townhouse, Nicole reads over the letter Baker sent to Sami. Just then, someone knocks at the door. Nicole stuffs the letter into her purse as Rafe puts his key into the lock and lets himself in. He asks if Sami is here, but Nicole says she is out. Suspiciously, Rafe asks Nicole why she is here, then.

Rafe suspiciously asks Nicole if Sami knows that she is here. Nicole claims she does, and that she took Sydney to the pub, but Rafe doesnt buy it. Nicole reminds him that he told her before that he was supportive of her and Samis connection, especially since Sami needs a friend right now. Rafe admits that he did say that. Nicole asks him angrily why he broke in to Samis house. Rafe claims that he still has the key, and that Sami knows that, but Nicole insists he broke in, since he and Sami arent together anymore. Nicole demands to know what Rafe is up to.
Melanie tries to claim the video is a fake, but she bursts into tears. Nathan sighs, saying that he has to get back to work. Stephanie, who is also in tears, claims that she is a fool. She lays into Melanie, saying that she thought she had changed. Melanie claims she has. Stephanie demands to know if she and Philip were even broken up at the time, and Melanie says they were. She tells Stephanie that she was trying to get Philip and Stephanie back together, but Stephanie kept rejecting him. She turned Philip down, but he made it very clear that he wasnt with Stephanie anymore.

Chad claims that Mia is just shy, and that she probably forgot to mention him coming over to Maggie. Maggie notices the lawyers letter in Chads hand and demands to know what he is doing with Mias mail. Chad claims he was going to give it to Mia, but Maggie takes it, saying shell make sure Mia gets it herself. She tells Chad angrily that he takes a lot of liberties for someone that Mia has never breathed a word abut. Just then, Mia walks in. She greets Chad and Maggie asks if she knows him. Mia nods, saying she knows him from school. Maggie tells Mia that Chad is claiming that he is here to meet her. Maggie asks Mia if that is true.
Rafe claims that he isnt up to anything, and that it is none of Nicoles business why he is here. She wonders why it is his business why she is here, then. Rafe admits he came for his mail. Nicole grabs her purse worriedly and asks why he didnt leave a forwarding address. Rafe sifts through the envelopes, saying that he did, but that sometimes the mail doesnt come through. Nicole scoffs as Sami walks in. She greets Nicole, but stops short when she sees Rafe, asking what is going on. Nicole stands up suddenly, saying that Carolines clam chowder didnt agree with her. She rushes off for the bathroom.

Maggie claims that she doesnt have a problem with that, but she tells Mia that her giving Chad her keys was a bit inappropriate. Mia gapes. Chad gives her a desperate look. Mia gulps and tells Maggie that what she did was wrong, and that it wont happen again. Maggie starts to head off to give the two some privacy, but Mia stops her, saying that Chad isnt going to stay.
Sami asks Rafe if Nicole was sick before, but Rafe says it came on her suddenly. He explains to Sami that he dropped by to pick up his mail. Sami says he could have called. He apologizes and says that he thought no one was home, but Nicole was sitting right by the mail. Rafe stops suddenly and excuses himself. He rushes off to the bathroom. Nicole has ripped Bakers letter up into little pieces and is getting ready to flush them. Rafe bangs on the door, demanding to be let in.

Philip isnt sure what to say. Stephanie scoffs. Philip tries to explain that all this happened after she ended things between them, but Stephanie retorts that she thought he loved her. She adds angrily that she is sick of hearing herself say that she thought Philip had changed. She thinks all those promises that Philip made to be a better man were just manipulations.

Stephanie vows never to forgive him for that.
Brady lays into the manager, calling him scum. He adds angrily that the man puts people out on the internet like that to hurt and exploit them.

The man growls that he wants his lawyer as the officers prepare to take him away. Arianna stares at Brady in horror.
Chad demands to know if Mia has feelings for him. She admits she does--disgust and anger. She asks him why he thought it was ok to track her down and break in her house, adding that it feels as if he is stalking her. Chad claims he is doing no such thing, and Mia asks what he was trying to accomplish, then. Chad tells her that he was just desperate, and that Mia drives him crazy. Mia wonders what that even means. Chad says that he cant stop thinking about Mia. She rolls her eyes and starts to head off, but Chad stops her, saying that she claims to be with Will, but he knows she is having the same problem forgetting about him.
Nicole claims that Rafe is just jealous of her friendship with Sami. She adds viciously that he is a control freak that cant stand the fact that Sami isnt under his thumb anymore. She also thinks that Rafe is out to hurt her. Rafe admits that Nicole is right, and that he cant stand her. He adds that he never liked the idea of Sami and Nicole becoming friends. Sami tells him angrily that it is none of his business. She adds that she trusts Nicole completely, so he can keep his opinions about her to himself. Nicole says she has to go and Sami apologizes again as she shows Nicole and Sydney out. Sami whirls on Rafe, asking if he is proud of himself.

Sami says that she can tell something is going on with Rafe and she demands to know what it is.
Stephanie tells Philip angrily that she knew something happened between him and Melanie. She reminds him that she gave him every opportunity to tell her what happened, but he claimed Melanie was just a shoulder to cry on. Philip admits he was a coward. He thought that he if he lied, everything would be fine, since Stephanie never could have forgiven him if he had told her the truth. He asks her if he was right about that.
Rafe thinks that Sami is reading too much into all this, but she claims that she can see the tension between Rafe and Nicole. Rafe admits he was surprised to see Nicole here, and adds that he cant trust her, no matter what Sami thinks of her. Sami retorts that she thinks Rafe is the one she shouldnt trust. She demands that Rafe give her back her keys, saying that she is sick of all the lies. Rafe sighs and hands her the keys. Sami says goodbye to him pointedly.
Mia tells Chad to leave. The two continue to argue as Nicole sneaks into the kitchen from the living room. It seems Lucas gave her a key to Maggies when they were married, but Nicole admits to Sydney that that wasnt a happy time in her life. Nicole hears Mia and Chad arguing outside and grimaces, saying that that doesnt sound good. Suddenly, Nicole spots the letter from Bakers lawyer in the table. She snatches it up and grins. Just then, Mia walks back in, asking Nicole what she is doing.
Stephanie tells Philip that she might have forgiven him had he been honest with her from the beginning. Philip thinks that thats a lie. He tells Stephanie that he never told her the truth because he knew she would never forgive him, and also because he knew what happened between him and Melanie was never going to happen again. Philip adds that he was wrong to sleep with Melanie, but the fact that he did doesnt change anything between him and Stephanie. Stephanie promptly accuses him of being delusional. Philip pleads with her, saying that he nailed the interview Chicago. He just wants to move there and start a new life with her. Stephanie storms off.
Brady approaches Melanie at the hospital, telling her that the video is officially off the web. She bawls, telling Brady that its too late, and that both Stephanie and Philip saw it. She sobs and throws herself into Bradys arms, saying that she has ruined everything. Brady hugs her and tries to soothe her.
Rafe nurses a cup of coffee at the pub and sulks. Arianna comes in, guessing that things arent going so well. Rafe admits that that is true, and tells Arianna about the letter Baker sent Sami. He tells Arianna that he is positive Nicole got her hands on the letter first and destroyed it. Arianna wonders why he doesnt just tell Sami about it, but Rafe says that he has no proof. He cant just go to Sami and tell her that he thinks Baker and Nicole had something to do with Graces death. Arianna asks what he is going to do, then. Rafe sighs, admitting he is thinking of forgetting all about finding a connection between Baker, Nicole, and Grace.
Mia asks Nicole what she is doing with a letter addressed to her. Mia snatches the envelope from Nicole. Nicole stammers, explaining to Mia that it is from her lawyer. She admits she did a terrible thing, and tells Mia that she had her lawyer take out a restraining order against her. Mia gapes, saying that she did everything Nicole asked of her and wonders why Nicole did this. Mia adds that she stayed away, and that she didnt even tell her ex about the baby. Nicole says that she knows that, and she admits that Mia has been great. Thats why she regrets her decision and has decided to make the restraining order go away. Nicole asks Mia to hand her the letter so she can have her lawyer rip it up.
Victor speaks to one of his men outside the pub, who promises to contact him as soon as they know more about Arianna. Victor thanks him and hangs up, heading into the pub. Arianna greets him, asking him if she can get him anything. Victor tells her that the two of them need to have a little chat--alone.
Sami cries quietly and opens her mail. She finds Sydneys giraffe toy under a stack of letters on the ground and guesses that the baby will want it back. She sobs, hoping Nicole knows how lucky she is to have Sydney.
Nicole tells Mia that she doesnt want to cause her any more pain and asks her for the letter. Mia hands it over and bursts into tears. She admits that it was difficult to let Sydney go, but she knows that EJ and Nicole love her. Nicole nods, saying they love her more than Mia can imagine. She adds that Mia deserves to be happy, as she has a good heart. She tells Mia that she made the right decision in regards to Sydney and heads off. Outside, Nicole sighs, telling Sydney that this is finally all over.
Rafe heads to the pier as his phone rings. Its Sister Teresa. She explains that she is back from her retreat and heard that Rafe wanted to speak with her. Rafe admits that he does.
Stephanie throws her engagement ring on the ground, I need to give you back this.
Victor barks at Arianna, Lie to me once more, and by God, I'll have you arrested here and now.
Rafe shows Sister Teresa a picture of Nicole, Do you know her? She replies, I do.
