At the pub, Philip thanks someone over the phone for the bachelor party as Kate interrupts. Kate wants to know why he hasnt called her back. He claims he was busy. Kate sighs, saying that she needs to warn him. He assumes this is about her having to share the spotlight with Vivian. She says that isnt it at all, and that she wants him to be happy. She then snorts that she isnt the one causing trouble, and adds that she thinks Vivian is the one trying ruin everything. Philip says abruptly that he has to go, but Kate asks him to wait. She claims she understands he has lost his trust in her, but he has to listen to one thing. Philip sighs as Kate warns him that Vivian is plotting something, and that he has to keep her away from Melanie.
Melanie sleeps in bed at the Kiriakis mansion. Vivian brings in a breakfast tray and greets her. She asks how Melanie slept, and she says the whole night was awful. Vivian claims she has chronic insomnia, so she can sympathize. She takes one look at Melanie and suggests that she take a nap before the wedding, but Melanie shakes her head, saying they already talked about this, and she cant marry Philip, as it isnt right. Vivian thinks she is just having pre-wedding jitters. Melanie sighs, saying that isnt it at all.
At the Java Cafe, Daniel talks to a little boy about a game hes playing on his laptop. The boy explains that he cant seem to get past level two, but Daniel thinks he knows the trick. He quickly shows the boy how to finish the level as Brady walks in. He watches the two and smiles.
Chloe strolls along the pier. She takes a pregnancy test out of a paper sack and sighs. She wonders why she is so nervous and tells herself to go home and take the test already.
At the pub, Bo orders coffee from Pete and checks his phone, wondering where Carly is. He decides to hunt her down since she isnt answering his calls, and asks Pete to cancel the coffee order.
Carly is outside the Kiriakis mansion. She flashes back to asking Kate how the two can help one another. Kate, in, turn, asks about the connection between Carly, Vivian, and Melanie. Carly comes back to the present and decides that since Vivian knows about Melanie, all bets are off, and Melanie has to hear the truth from her. She bangs on the door of the Kiriakis mansion.
Melanie claims that she has to talk to Philip, but Vivian say she cant until she says I do. Melanie doesnt think she understands, but Vivian says she does, and vows not to let Melanie humiliate her and her son by backing out of the wedding. She then adds that she has brought Melanie one of her wedding presents. She gives her a necklace, saying its her mothers, and that she dreamed of having a daughter of her own to wear it. She puts it around Melanies neck, saying tearfully that its perfect. Melanie sighs. Vivian apologizes, saying she feels emotional. She practically sobs, telling Melanie that she is so beautiful and full of life. Melanie wonders why that makes her sad. Vivian says she isnt, and that she is happy because Melanie and Philip are going to get married. She strokes Melanies face. Melanie starts to panic.
Philip doesnt think Kate sees the pattern here, and claims that when things start going well for people, Kate has to make trouble. She claims she isnt doing that, and that when Vivian first came to town, she thought it was all just about a competition for Philips affection, but now she thinks something else is going on. Philip isnt so sure, but Kate claims she can feel it.
Melanie says that she appreciates the necklace and that it means a lot to her. Vivian stops her before she can go on, saying that she is not going to break the commitment she made to Philip. Melanie, upset, wonders why Vivian thinks she is a bad person. Vivian retorts that Melanie is weak and fickle. Melanie claims she isnt weak; shes just young and has made mistakes. Vivian thinks marrying Philip was the right decision. Melanie huffs that Vivian isnt being helpful, as she is just berating her and making her feel terrible for confiding in her that she didnt want to marry Philip. She then accuses Vivian of forcing liquor on her to make her stay the night here. Vivian scoffs that that couldnt let Melanie drive home in that condition. Melanie groans, saying that she is going to go, but Vivian vows not to let Melanie go until nagging these doubt of hers go away. She then swears that Melanie will marry Philip even if it kills her. Melanie gapes.
The young boy thanks Daniel profusely as Brady greets him, joking that he can pass down all that game knowledge to his own kids. Daniel makes a face. Brady asks if something is wrong. Daniel nods, telling Brady that its not going to happen, so he needs to just drop the subject. Brady is taken aback.
Arianna runs into Chloe, who drops her paper bag. The pregnancy test tumbles out of it. Arianna picks it up and hands it back as Chloe stuffs it back in the bag. Arianna asks if she thinks she could be pregnant. Chloe sighs. Arianna asks if that wouldnt be a good thing.
Melanie says that she has to go as Carly bangs on the door downstairs. Vivian gasps, suspecting that Melanie is in love with someone else. As the knocks grow louder and more insistent, Melanie, irritated, yells for someone to answer door.
Outside, Carly begs someone to open the door so she can talk to Melanie. Suddenly, she slips on the ice on the stoop and pitches backwards.
Victor heads downstairs, thinking all the ruckus may have been the paper arriving. He opens the door and finds Carly outside, sprawled unconscious on the front stoop. Victor sighs and shakes his head.
At the police station, Hope heads in and greets an officer, asking if Roman is back. The man shakes his head, explaining that the commissioner is out working on a case. Hope starts to head off, but the officer stops her, telling her that they miss her and are wondering when she is coming back to work. Abe walks in just then, saying he wonders the same thing.
Philip snaps that it probably isnt the best idea to let wacko gut feelings rule the day. Kate is surprised that Philip isnt worried about Vivians weird obsession with Melanie. Philip says that he thinks Vivian has changed and that she is just happy for him and Melanie. He adds that he is sure Vivian isnt out to destroy anyone. He tells Kate pointedly that he will see her at the wedding and heads off. Kate chases after him.
Melanie admits there is another man. Vivian groans that the plot thickens. Melanie then admits that she isnt proud of her fickleness, but she doesnt want to be ridiculed over it either. Vivian cant believe that Melanie accepted Philips ring and agreed to be his wife all while she was pining after that boring Doctor Horton. Melanie, shocked, wonders how she knew about that.
Victor gingerly steps over Carly and picks up the newspaper. He then steps back over her body and heads back into the mansion. Henderson heads into the foyer to tell Victor that breakfast is ready. Victor informs Henderson nonchalantly that some trash has piled up outside the front door. Henderson offers to get the maid, but Victor thinks this is going to take more than just a dustpan. He then advises Henderson to call an ambulance. Henderson hurries off.
Carly comes to and moans, calling out for Melanie, her baby.
Brady apologizes to Daniel for being so pushy. Daniel says he is sorry too, as he shouldnt have snapped. He then explains that Chloe isnt able to carry a child to term or become pregnant because of the chemotherapy she endured. Brady, stunned, says he had no idea. Daniel assures Brady there are other options, like surrogacy and adoption, but he and Chloe havent discussed it yet as the subject is tough for her. Daniel confides in Brady that the last thing he wants to do is put any pressure on Chloe.
Chloe admits to Arianna that her being pregnant is good thing if it turns out to be true. Arianna apologizes, as she knows this is personal. She does say that she hopes the test turns out positive if Chloe and Daniel want to have baby. Chloe sighs. Arianna, confused, says that she thought a positive test would be good news. Chloe says that even if she is pregnant, things could go wrong, so she cant tell Daniel. She goes on to say that Daniel cant know about this--no matter what the results are.
Abe tells Hope they need her back at the station, and that he doesnt think her living at the Kiriakis mansion will undermine her integrity. She thanks him for saying so and admits that she wants to get back to work. She adds that shed like to start immediately if possible, as she needs some sort of structure and routine, especially when it comes to Ciara. Abe admits he know she is having a hard time. Hope nods, but vows theyll get through it. Abe wonders if there is any chance Hope and Bo can work things out. Hopes face falls. Abe apologizes for saying anything, as this is none of his business. Hope replies that she knows he is trying to be helpful, but there is no working it out between her and Bo, as he is with Carly now.
Bo heads into the hospital and runs into Lexie, asking if Carly is at work. Lexie admits Carly is here, but as a patient, not for her shift. Bo, panicked, asks what happened. Lexie then explains that Carly fell and hit her head on some ice. He asks worriedly if she is ok. Lexie says he is and takes Bo to see Carly in her room. He greets her, asking if she is ok. He then asks how she fell. She asks him to tell her.
Philip heads into the Kiriakis mansion and slams the door behind him. Kate bangs on the door. He yells at her to go home, but she refuses to do so until he opens the door. Philip groans and opens it, asking why she is doing this. She explains that she has to make him understand. Philip sighs, telling Kate that while he does want her at the wedding, he really cant deal with her conspiracy theories anymore. She ignores him, claiming that Vivian is planning something. Philip thinks the only plan here is Kates plan to ruin his day, and refuses to let her do anything other than just be happy for him. Kate tries to say something, but Philip fumes that he has had it with her. He then threatens to have her thrown out of the wedding at the first sign of trouble. Kate groans as Victor walks in, saying that he agrees wholeheartedly with Philip.
Melanie asks if Philip talked to Vivian about her and Nathan. She says he didnt, and promptly demands to know if Melanie cheated on Philip. She claims she didnt and that she and Nathan never did anything while she was with Philip. Vivian wonders what is going on, but all Melanie can say to explain herself is that she and Nathans breakup didnt take. Vivian rolls her eyes, wondering if Melanie knows how ridiculous that sounds. Melanie, frustrated, says that she has to wonder why Vivian would want Philip to marry someone that isnt fully committed to him. Vivian ignores her, saying that she thinks Melanie should have thought of all this before she made wedding plans and agreed to Philips proposal. Melanie stammers. Vivian then tells Melanie that she has to marry Philip, and then shell see that everything will turn out to be heavenly--or maybe not. Melanie stares at her suspiciously as Vivian grins.
Abe and Hope head into an office, talking about the fact that Bo is seeing Carly. Hope declares that they live together and are in love. Abe asks if she is sure about that. She admits Bo never used those words, but she can only assume that its not just a little crush since Carly has moved in. Abe sighs, saying that this must painful for both her and Bo. Abe claims that he knows Bo made this choice, but the person he feels most sorry for is Ciara. Hope insists that Ciara is her first priority. Abe isnt so sure, though he knows Hope will hate him for saying what he is about to say. He then claims that if Hope and Bo cant work this out, then Ciaras world will be turned upside down. Hope, upset, doesnt want to talk about it, but Abe demands that she listen. He then begs her to work on her marriage and think of her daughter. Hope protests. Abe claims that he knows Bo chose to move in with Carly, but he thinks Hope should fight for Bo and not give up-- for Ciaras sake if not for her own.
Arianna is surprised that Chloe wouldnt want to tell Daniel if the test is positive. Chloe then explains to Arianna that she is going to have problems conceiving and carrying a child to term because of her chemotherapy treatments. Arianna thinks her having a child is possible, but Chloe shakes her head, saying that she read all about it on the internet, and learned that its most likely impossible.. Arianna still doesnt think Chloe can be sure it wont happen, but Chloe claims that she cant give Daniel false hope.
Lexie asks Bo to call her if he needs her and heads off. Bo jokes with Carly that shell have to wear his hockey helmet the next time she goes out. She groggily explains she tried to call him.

She thinks the phone call had something to do with Melanie, but cant remember why she called Bo about her daughter.
Melanie tells Vivian that her lecture isnt having the desired affect, as Vivian is freaking her out by being bossy and scary. She sobs that she wants to go home and talk to Max and Maggie, who will both soothe her and assure her that she doesnt have to go through with this wedding. She adds tearfully that neither of them will accuse her of being flighty or fickle. Vivian tries to calm Melanie down as she bawls that she cant do this. Just then, Philip walks in, asking what it is Melanie cant do.
Hope begs Abe not to lecture her. He agrees not to anymore, but then tells her about his and Lexies problems and how it affected Theo.

He opens it, takes out Hopes gun, hands it to her, and welcomes her back to force.

Victor warns Kate not to say another word and calls for Henderson.

She then adds that before he does that, she needs him do something else.
Philip asks if this is about them getting married. Melanie admits she told Vivian that she couldnt marry him because she doesnt feel worthy of him. Philip scoffs, asking if she really expects him to believe that.

Brady explains that he brought her a gift. He pulls a small ring box out of his pocket. Arianna is taken aback. Brady urges her to open it.
Daniel explains that the favor does have something to do with Chloe, and Allie, too. Lucas asks what he means, and Daniel replies that Chloe misses Allie and he was hoping that Lucas would allow Chloe to spend some time with her. Lucas wonders how it could be healthy for Allie to spend time with her ex-step mom. He adds angrily that he thinks Allie is having a hard enough time getting along without Chloe around as it is. Daniel is sorry Lucas sees things that way. Lucas nastily suggests that Daniel give Chloe a kid of her own so she wont pine after his. Lucas storms off. Daniel sighs.
At her and Daniels apartment, Chloe takes out the pregnancy test and stares at it. She sighs.

Kate comes by the police station, asking if Bo is there. Hope says he isnt, and asks if she can help, but Kate says that this isnt exactly police business. Hope thinks she ought to be getting ready for the wedding. Kate agrees, but says she cant, as she is worried about Philip and Melanie. She then tells Hope about Vivians odd obsession with Melanie and tells her about Vivians gift, and how she took it because she felt weird about the whole thing. Hope listens, interested, as Kate relates that Vivian went insane when Melanie nearly opened the gift. Kate then tells Hope that Vivian called a strange man to discuss Melanie, and she heard her tone and knows she is up to something. Hope asks if Kate thinks that Vivian would do something to hurt Melanie. Kate says that why she is here, as she doesnt think it-- she knows it. She urges Hope to tell Bo or anyone else that will listen that Vivian needs to be stopped.
Gus brings Vivian Melanies gift. She thanks him, asking him to go find out about what is going on with Carly.

Vivian snaps that now she knows what it feels like to lose someone she loves. Vivian comes back from her reverie, promising that Carly will know how it feels very soon.
Arianna takes a deep breath and opens the box to find a bracelet inside. Surprised, she tells Brady that it is beautiful. Brady then explains that it belonged to his mom and Arianna thanks him, saying shes touched. Brady admits he feels a little stupid, as he gave it to her in a ring box, and he saw the look on her face. She tells him not to worry and claims she loves the bracelet, especially as it was his mothers. Brady admits he didnt know her well, but he has pictures and some memories, but he feels like he knows her and is sure she would have been proud of him for choosing to love Arianna. She thanks him again and the two kiss.
Hope asks if Kate has spoken to Victor and Philip about this. Kate says she has, of course, but they both think she is just trying to cause trouble. She explains that the problem is that Vivian has sucked them both in, and they think shes changed and is trying to be part of the family. Kate claims that she knows for a fact that that is untrue and begs Hope for help before something catastrophic happens. Hope asks her not to worry, vowing to look into it immediately. Kate hugs her and thanks her.
Daniel heads into Carlys room to check on her. She asks groggily how she is doing. He says she is fine, but that he wants to run some more tests.

She guesses disappointedly that she doesnt have a choice and sighs, saying that she wishes she could remember what happened. She then asks where the EMTs picked her up. Daniel says that she was at Victors. Carly, surprised, wonders what she was doing there.
Melanie wonders why Philip doesnt believe that she has insecurities. Philip replies that he doesnt think she should have them anymore. Melanie asks if he thinks all of it will magically go away after the wedding. Philip nods, saying he does think so, especially since he tells Melanie time and time again how perfect and wonderful she is. He kisses her. Melanie kisses him back. He asks if she feels better and more secure now. She admits that she does. Hes glad to hear it and kisses her again. He then promises to see her at the altar and heads off, bumping into Vivian outside. She asks if he and Melanie worked everything out. Philip says that they did and that everything is fine.
