At the pub, Sami hisses at EJ not to dare blame Rafe for this. Furious, he reminds her that she was blaming Rafe too until he was able to convince her that he is some kind of savior. Sami retorts that Rafe gives her hope, but EJ thinks thats because he has nothing more tangible to offer. He adds that Rafe is the reason that they lost their daughter. Sami says that isnt true, but EJ snaps that they were very close to getting their daughter back until that bastard showed up and ruined everything. He wonders how Sami can take a man like that into her bed and into her life. Sami shrieks at EJ to shut up, as Rafe loves Sydney and wants her back as much as they do. She adds angrily that Rafe loves her like a daughter. EJ snaps that Sydney isnt his daughter and that they have no connection. Sami replies that isnt true, as Rafe is connected to all her children through her. EJ thinks Sami should be ashamed for shacking up with the man that most likely killed their daughter. Sami is sure that Sydney cant be dead. EJ admits he doesnt want to say it or to even think it, but he thinks they have to have the courage to face that horrible reality. He claims that he has faced it, and Sami has to, too.
At the Kiriakis mansion, Philip and Melanies wedding reception is in full swing. Guests mill around as Philip confides in Brady that he has been married less than an hour, and is already the happiest man on earth. Brady chuckles, promising not to tell Philip how sappy that sounds since its his wedding day. Philip wonders when Brady is going to take the big leap, since Arianna is such a great girl. Brady admits that he has been giving it some thought.
Nearby, Arianna admits that they were all worried when Melanie missed her cue. Melanie stammers, admitting that she was freaking out a little. Arianna wonders if she is ok now, and Melanie says that shes fine, though her nerves did get hold of her. Arianna asks if she was having second thoughts, but Melanie claims she wasnt and that she just wanted everything to be perfect. Melanie then asks if Arianna has seen Stephanie, as she wants some pictures with her bridesmaids. Arianna explains she isnt here, and asks if she should go find her. Melanie replies that she will find Stephanie herself and heads off for the foyer.
Stephanie walks outside the mansion and greets Nathan, asking why he texted her. He apologizes for pulling her out of the reception, claiming that he just cant wait anymore to leave for their vacation. Stephanie reminds him that she still has obligations to fulfill as a bridesmaid, but Nathan doesnt think she really wants to sit through all of those boring toasts. Stephanie admits that that is true. Nathan urges her to get out of here with him now, as he needs as much alone time with her as possible. Stephanie agrees, but says there is something she has to tell him first.
Melanie runs into Vivian in the foyer and tells her that she is glad he made it. Vivian grins, claiming that she wouldnt miss this for the world.
Bo rushes into the warehouse, calling out for Carly. Inside, he finds Hope lying unconscious under a pile of boxes. Bo panics, yanking the heavy wooden boxes off of Hope and calling her by name. Hope groans. Bo assures her that she is going to be ok, and that everything is going to be alright.
Abe takes Lexie out on a porch near the roof of the mansion. Lexie wonders what they are doing here, since the reception is downstairs.

Chloe meets Daniel at the hospital. He asks how she is feeling, since she didnt sound so good over the phone. Chloe admits that she had to pull over a few times, as she has the afternoon version of morning sickness. He asks how the wedding was, and Chloe explains that Philip and Melanie looked very happy. She just hopes nothing ruins it. Daniel wonders why she would say that, but Chloe tells him to forget it. She then asks why he asked her to meet him here, since his shift is supposed to be over. Daniel admits that it is, and that he has a very special surprise for her.
Stephanie tells Nathan that hearing Melanie and Philip exchange vows made her realize that she wants what they have and that she wants to find true love. She thinks she can find that with Nathan, but she needs to know that he feels the same way. Nathan claims that he wouldnt be here if he didnt, and that he wants this trip to serve as a turning point in their relationship. Stephanie is glad to hear it and heads off down the sidewalk, suggesting that they go. Nathan agrees, but looks back over his shoulder at the mansion wistfully.
Melanie asks Vivian why she wasnt at the wedding. Vivian explains that she was detained, but now that she is here, she has a gift to give Melanie. Melanie reminds her that she already gave her a comb and a necklace, but Vivian claims that this is a life-changing gift, and one that doesnt come in a box. Melanie asks what it is, and Vivian explains that she has done some research, and that she found some information about Melanies mother. Melanie asks what she found out, but Vivian would rather wait to discuss this until they have some privacy. She leads Melanie upstairs as Maggie heads into the foyer. She stares after Vivian and Melanie suspiciously.
Sami claims that she doesnt care how grim and pessimistic EJ is, as she is never going to give up on her little girl. EJ thinks shes headed for a crushing disappointment. Sami cant believe that he is giving up on his daughter this way. EJ claims that this is killing him, as no one was closer to Sydney than him. Sami begs him to stop talking about their daughter in the past tense. EJ complains that just a little while ago, he had two beautiful children and a loving wife, and he thought he knew what happiness was then, but he has been reminded every day since that he is missing something. Sami softens, saying she gets he has been through a nightmare, but he cant continue to take it out on Rafe. EJ declares that Rafe is the reason he doesnt have his daughter. Sami insists that Sydney isnt dead, and that Rafe is going to find her and bring her home. EJ shouts that both Sami and Rafe can go to hell.
Back at the reception, Will asks Mia what she thinks of Valentines Day. She replies that its more cheesy than Snuggies, but less cheesy than Celine Dion songs. Will chuckles, asking if it would be totally lame of him to give her a gift. She grins, admitting that it wouldnt. He hands Mia a box. She opens it to find a necklace inside. She gasps, telling him how beautiful it is, and that it isnt cheesy at all. She then asks Will to put the necklace on. He does so, telling her he knows theyve been through some rough stuff lately, but hes really glad shes in his life. Mia replies that she is grateful to have him in her life as well.
Brady admits to Arianna that he never really got Melanie and Philip as a couple, but he has to admit that Philip seems happy. Arianna thinks the feeling is contagious, and Brady agrees, saying that it makes him want to get down on one knee. Arianna gets serious, telling him to control the impulse. Brady thinks it would be romantic if he proposed in front of all these people, but Arianna says that it would be embarrassing. Brady jokingly starts to bend down on one knee, but Arianna grabs him, hissing at him to stop. She warns him that people are starting to stare. He kisses her, telling her that he wants them to.

Sami tells EJ that she is going to do him a favor and forgive him for the things he is saying since she knows he isnt himself right now and isnt thinking straight. EJ scoffs. Sami ignores him, explaining that the fear and grief can drive you crazy, and no one knows that better than she does. She then assures EJ that he isnt alone, as they are in this together. EJ snaps back that she is in this with Rafe, so he is actually alone. Sami groans, saying that she really thought they were getting along well lately. EJ claims that that was before Rafe came along, and before Sami started ignoring the fact that Rafe is the reason that she doesnt get to hold her daughter in hr arms at night. He advises Sami to think about that the next time Rafe holds her in his. Sami refuses to argue about this anymore, as she knows her daughter is alive. She claims she can feel it, and EJ would too if he werent so busy being bitter and angry.
Chloe, excited, asks Daniel if they can really do the sonogram now. He smiles and nods, explaining that the doctor had a late cancellation. Chloe thinks that is the best surprise in the world, as this is the first time she and Daniel will see their baby. Chloe adds that she thinks she might be further along than she thought, since her pants are getting a bit tight. Daniel kisses her, saying he likes it. She then says shes ready to go see the doctor, but Daniel says they have an important decision to make first. Chloe asks what he means, and Daniel explains that sonograms can be very revealing when it comes to gender, so they need to decide if they want to know the sex of the baby.
Mia shows off her necklace to Lucas, saying that Will must have gotten his romantic side from his father. Lucas grumbles that Will also inherited his knack for choosing women, but Philip takes him by the arm and hustles him off before he can say more. Lucas apologizes over his shoulder, explaining that he just hates Valentines Day. Mia guesses that Wills dad still doesnt like her, even after his big apology.

Vivian puts her arm around Melanie and grins, saying that it is so beautiful up here, its almost like heaven.
Rafe is back at the pub, alone with Sami. He jokes about how Gabis emergency was that she wanted him to buy her a sweater at the mall that was nearly sold out, or shed die. Sami chuckles, asking if Rafe tested her theory, but he admits that he caved, though they did have a long talk about what constitutes an emergency. He then asks how things went with EJ, and Sami admits it didnt go well, as EJ kept saying that he thinks Sydney is dead and that they will never find her.

EJ storms into Annas hideout. She guesses that Sami took Rafe back, and he nods in a fury, saying that its ridiculous, as any reasonable woman would have hated Rafe for what he did. Anna thinks EJ is getting worked up over nothing, since this doesnt change anything, but EJ rages that it changes everything. He fumes that Sami is supposed to be alone and miserable, but instead, she is shacking up with that FBI hack without a care in the world for her daughter.

Anna admits she is starting to think this is all going too far, but EJ doesnt think he has gone far enough, as what Sami deserves is complete and utter devastation. Anna starts to object, but EJ interrupts, vowing that he wont allow Sami to be happy with another man--he just wont stand for it.
Stefano ruefully tells Kate in the living room of the Kiriakis mansion that Tokyo called, and that he is going to have to leave.

Vivian agrees to cut to the chase and explains that she and Melanies mother have a bit of a history together, and that they go back a long way. Melanie is delighted that Vivian knows her, since her father always refused to talk about her. She asks Vivian to tell her everything, but Vivian grabs Melanies arm, saying that they dont really have time. She grabs a protesting Melanie and drags her to the edge of the porch as Carly rushes outside, demanding that Vivian take her hands off of Melanie.

Rafe asks again if everything is fine. Anna explains that everything is, and promises to see him soon. She then hangs up. EJ asks if she is planning on going to the police station.
