At Annas hideout, EJ watches Sami at her place via her webcam. She watches the video of Sydney and sobs. EJ flashes back to burning the ransom note so that Sami cant show it to Rafe. He comes back to the present, saying that its now time to see if Sami can keep her word.
Sami watches the video and moans, saying that she cant believe Sydney is still alive. Rafe walks in just then and asks Sami what she said. She looks up, startled.
Nathan heads into his and Stephanies cabin at Alpine Valley and explains that the bill has been paid. Stephanie grumbles and continues packing. Nathan shows her a photo taken of her on one of the slopes, but Stephanie thinks she looks demented. Nathan disagrees, saying that she can really ski well. He picks up his coat and notices his lift pass attached to it. He notes that he really hates guys that return from skiing trips with their lift pass still clipped to their jackets, as it seems as if they just want to show off. Stephanie, uninterested, suggests he just tell people he went skiing, but Nathan stops her, saying that he is keeping the pass as a souvenir of the best trip he ever had. He offers to help Stephanie pack, but she says that isnt the problem. Stephanie then flashes back to ripping up the note Melanie wrote Nathan. Nathan wonders what the problem is. He then admits he doesnt want to pack, because he doesnt want admit to himself that theyre really leaving. Stephanie sighs, telling Nathan that they need to talk about Melanie.
At the pier, Carly calls Daniel and leaves him a message, saying that she was wondering if he talked to Melanie, and asking him to call her back, even though she knows he is angry with her. She then adds that she thinks Daniel was right to not tell Melanie that he is her father right away, as they need to be concerned with how much information Melanie can handle right now. Carly hangs up with a sighs and asks herself who she is kidding, as she is really just concerned with what Melanie will think of her when she finds out about another swell piece of her mothers history.
Melanie wakes up in her room at the hospital to find Daniel sitting by her side. She grins, admitting that she had a dream someone was staring at her. She yawns, admitting that it take a few minutes for her to wake up. Daniel jokes that he felt that way during his first E.R. rotation. He takes Melanies pulse. She asks abruptly if his jokes are his way of stalling from telling her something bad. Daniel claims that isnt true, but Melanie asks if he sure, since he looks so worried--as if he is bracing himself to give her some bad news. Daniel sighs.
Sami tells Rafe that she didnt hear him come in. EJ chuckles from Annas hideout, warning her that Big Brother is watching. Rafe asks Sami what is going on and if something happened. She admits something did. EJ glares.
Chloe heads into the pub and greets Philip, who is talking to Max over the phone about Melanie. He hangs up and Chloe remarks that he seems happy. Philip admits he is, and that Max is, too. Chloe figures he would be, since he is the only family Melanie has other than the mother that shot her. Philip chuckles, saying he thought he had a complicated family. He then asks Chloe how she is doing. She says she is doing much better thanks to him, and counsels him to finish his food, as he cant just live on coffee alone. Philip jokes about how maternal she is, then stops short, apologizing. Chloe says its alright, and begs Philip not to feel as if he has to walk on eggshells around her--especially since he has been so good to her and has talked to her about her problems. Philip asks how things are going with Daniel. Chloe admits that they havent had a chance to talk, but she thought about what Philip said, and he was right--Daniel is going through the same thing she is, and hes also facing that he will never have his own child.
Daniel apologizes for worrying Melanie, explaining that her recovery can actually be categorized as remarkable. Melanie jokes that its probably because of all the peace and calm shes been getting. Daniel sighs, admitting she has been through hell the last few days. Melanie smiles, saying she thought getting shot at her wedding was the most interesting thing that would happen to her this week, but it turns out that Carly was just getting started. Daniel smiles wanly, admitting that she could say that. Melanie, concerned, asks if something happened to him. Daniel says nothing did, really. Melanie wonders why he is still being so serious then, if its true that she is fine. Daniel says its just because he is a doctor, and they tend to be serious. Melanie thanks God for that, since she wouldnt be here if it werent for Daniel. His mouth drops open. Melanie, astonished, asks what she said.
EJ grumbles that Sami just made a very big mistake. Sami stammers that EJ just sent her a video of Sydney that Nicole had taken a while ago. Rafe wants to see it, too. Sami hesitates. EJ growls, Dont you dare.
Nathan sighs, wondering why they have to talk about Melanie all the time. Stephanie claims that the subject seems off-limits with Nathan, and that worries her. Nathan wonders why. Stephanie explains that he wouldnt mind talking about Melanie if he were really over her, and the way he refuses to discuss makes Stephanie think that things arent settled between them. Nathan reminds Stephanie that it is settled, as Melanie married Philip and theyre probably halfway to Timbuktu, or wherever theyre going for their honeymoon. Stephanie grumps that theyll come back eventually. Nathan assure Stephanie that Melanie is his past, and she is his future. She wonders if he really means that. Nathan vows to prove it to her and pulls her in for a kiss.
Philip is on the phone, shouting at someone that he wont help them since the guy saved his wifes life. He hangs up angrily. Chloe asks whats wrong, and Philip explains that the hospital board wants to take disciplinary action against Daniel for letting Carly into Melanies room. Chloe groans, telling Philip that Carly is like a one-woman demolition derby. Philip says he is sorry, but reminds Chloe that Daniel knew about the restraining order. Chloe snaps that Carly did, too, and she cant believe that Daniel has to pay because Carly broke the law. Philip soothes her, reminding her that they dont know that. He then promises to do everything he can. Chloe thanks him. Philip then says that he had better get back to the hospital to see Melanie. He asks Chloe not to worry about Daniel, as Philip is sure that he will be fine. Chloe sighs as Philip heads off, saying that if he is, it wont be thanks to Carly.
Rafe wants to see the video, but Sami shuts it off, saying that she doesnt think he should upset himself that way. Rafe angrily reminds her that she just watched it, but Sami claims she got too upset and had to turn it off. Rafe retorts that when he walked in it seemed to him as if Samis eyes were filled with light and hope for the first time in a long time. Sami claims she was just remembering Sydney. Rafe sighs and starts to head off, but Sami stops him, telling him there is something she has to tell him. EJ glares, snapping at Sami not to dare blow this after shes come so far.
Daniel sniffles and rubs his eyes, saying theres something in his eye. Melanie thinks he is in a weird mood today. Daniel gets up, saying that he had better go weird out another one of his patients, but Melanie says she doesnt buy his excuse that he is a serous man. She wonders if whatever is bothering him has something to do with Carly. Daniel wonders why she would say that. Melanie claims its because Carly has ruined everyone elses life, so Melanie figures she probably had a go at Daniels too. She adds that Daniel usually defends Carly when she insults her, but his time he chimed right in. Daniel claims he is just tired. Melanie replies that she knows Carly has Bo eating out of the palm of her hand and wonders if Carly has something on Daniel, too. Daniel says that isnt it, exactly. Before Melanie can question him further, Philip walks in, glad that Melanie is awake. She asks ruefully if he has gotten any sleep, but Philip begs her not to worry about him. Daniel starts to head off, but Philip asks to speak to him for a moment first. The two head out to the nurses station, and Philip explains that he heard the board might discipline Daniel for letting Carly into Melanies room. Daniel sighs, asking Philip not to tell Melanie. Philip agrees, and vows to have Daniels back, as he knows about everything that Daniel has done for Melanie. Daniel shakes his head, saying that actually, Philip doesnt know everything.
Carly heads into the pub and greets Chloe. Chloe glares, saying pointedly that she was just thinking about Carly. Carly is surprised at the coincidence, since she has been trying to get in touch with Daniel. Chloe scoffs, saying that she thinks Carly has done enough damage. Carly stares, confused. Chloe snaps at her not to play innocent, as she knows everything.
Rafe asks Sami what happened. She stammers. EJ curses and takes out his phone. He calls Sami and interrupts her conversation with Rafe. EJ asks if she is alone, but Sami says she isnt. EJ sighs, asking Sami to stay calm. He then tells her that he made the ransom drop, and everything went fine. He adds that he knows she probably has a million questions, but she cant stay on the phone too long or Rafe will get suspicious. Sami agrees. EJ adds that he knows its difficult for her to keep this from Rafe, but they cant have a repeat of what happened last time. Sami says she doesnt need EJ to keep reminding her of that. EJ then tells Sami that he has been feeling agitated ever since he made the drop, and could really use someone to talk to. He asks Sami if she can make an excuse to drop by the mansion.
Philip cuddles Melanie in bed and asks her to imagine being on a beach in Greece. Melanie sighs, saying denial isnt something shes good at, and she cant imagine a beach and that crazy woman shooting her at the same time. She adds that she keeps thinking about Carly, and how she has a father out there, and how that infuriating woman wont tell her who he is. Melanie thinks that can only mean one thing--that her father is worse than Trent, a thing she didnt even imagine was possible.
Carly tells Chloe that she doesnt think she knows what she is talking about. Chloe snaps that Carly has a pretty good idea. Carly replies that she didnt realize that Daniel had already told Chloe. Chloe retorts that Daniel didnt tell her, as he is trying to protect her. Carly wonders how she found out, but Chloe explodes, asking angrily if that is what really matters to her after she has ruined life after life since her return to Salem. Carly suggests she and Chloe take a walk and talk things over. Chloe replies that she doesnt like Carly, and has no desire to talk things over with her. Carly sighs, saying that she understands Chloe is upset. Chloe agrees, saying that Daniel has finally found a life he loves after years of pain and suffering and it infuriates her that Carly has come back and destroyed it. Carly doubts that this will destroy his life. Chloe thinks it will, and asks Carly how she can live with herself after what shes done and demands to know if Carly even gave Daniel a second thought. Carly says that she did, of course, and that she thinks its horrible that Daniel only found out the truth after so many years had gone by. Chloe, confused, asks what she is talking about. Carly doesnt seem to pick up on the confusion and assures Chloe that she and Daniel will be able to work through this. She rambles on about how she believes in a higher power and that she thinks its more than coincidence that she knew Daniel--knew him and respected him. She reminds Chloe that she saw how hard Daniel worked to save Melanies life, and she is sure he loved Melanie long before he knew she was his daughter. Chloe gapes.
EJ asks Sami to be strong for Sydneys sake. She says she has to go, and abruptly hangs up. Rafe asks who that was, and Sami admits it was EJ. She stammers that she promised to drop Johnny off a little early. Rafe offers to do it for her, but Sami claims that she needs to do this on her own, as it would be good for her to spend some time with Johnny and get out of the house. Rafe agrees and Sami kisses him. She grabs her coat and purse and heads off. Rafe stares after her suspiciously.
EJ cuddles Sydney and tells her that her mother did very well, and did what she was told for a change. He explains that he has to go now, but that hell be back soon, and then theyll be together for a long time. EJ grins, saying that Sami and Rafe wont know what hit them. EJ calls out for Anna, telling her that Sydney is awake.
Rafe mutters to himself that it doesnt sound as if that call was about Johnny. He opens her laptop and hunts for the video she was watching, wondering why EJ would send it to her. He adds to himself hat Sami also seemed very nervous. Just then, Rafe gets a call. He takes it, listens, then tells the person theyve done good work, promising to be right there. Rafe hangs up and heads out the door.
Sami rushes into the DiMera mansion and asks EJ excitedly if he saw anything when he made the drop. EJ says he didnt. Sami sighs in disappointment, but admits she didnt think he would. She adds that she knows this is crazy, but she really feels like they might get Sydney back today. EJ reminds her that they cant be too hopeful, as they arent even sure that Sydney is alive. Sami thinks the video proves it, but EJ thinks they need to keep their wits about them. He again reminds her of how important it is that they dont involve Rafe in this. Sami snaps that she knows that, and doesnt need to be reminded. EJ apologizes, saying he knows she didnt tell Rafe anything on purpose, but he needs to know if she thinks Rafe suspects something. Sami replies that she thinks he does.
Stephanie and Nathan lie in bed together. He asks if she thinks Maggie would be disappointed if he gave up being a doctor to become a ski instructor. Stephanie jokes that he should learn how to ski first. He throws a pillow at her. Stephanie giggles, and reminds him of how much theyve talked about not wanting to go back to Salem. She asks if his fantasy life involves living in the country. Nathan says that his fantasy just involves Stephanie, so the cast is much more important than the location. He then adds that real life is intruding, as theyre going to be paying for an extra night if they stay much longer. Stephanie thinks they should, especially since Nathan doesnt have to go back to work until tomorrow. She asks him to really think about it as Nathan checks his phone. He gasps, telling Stephanie that he has twelve messages from his grandmother. Nathan panics, sure that something is wrong.
Chloe asks Carly what she just said. Carly stammers that she said that she thinks Chloe and Daniel can work through this. Shaken, Chloe says that she meant the part about Daniel being Melanies father. Carly turns white, saying she thought Chloe knew. Chloe replies that what she knew was that Daniel might be facing disciplinary action for letting Carly into Melanies room. Carly gapes. Chloe assumes this means that Carly told Daniel that he was Melanies father. She tells Chloe how sorry she is. Chloe says she cant believe Daniel bought it, and guesses angrily that Carly lied to Daniel about it to get in to see Melanie. Carly claims that isnt true. Chloe snaps that she wont let Carly con her the way she has conned Daniel. Daniel heads into the pub just as Chloe hisses that Carly will never get her to believe that Daniel is Melanies father. Aghast and angry, Daniel asks Carly if she told Chloe. Chloe stares up at him in shock.
EJ shouts at Sami that she has blown it. He adds in a rage that she must have said something to tip off Rafe. Sami yells back that she is doing the best that she can, and that Rafe is suspicious because of EJ, and because of the fact that he is an FBI agent and was just born that way. EJ reminds her of what happened the last time, and says they have one last chance. He wonders if she realizes what that means. Sami says she does, of course. EJ snaps that if this doesnt work out, and if they dont see their daughter again, then it will be because of that man.
Nathan calls Maggie and leaves her a message letting her know that they are on their way back. He hangs up with a sigh, worrying about the fact that she didnt answer. Stephanie is sure she is fine, as they left Maggie with a lot of people around her, but Nathan reminds her that Mickey is gone and Melanie moved out. Stephanie assures him that they are leaving right now, and will be able to get home soon and find out what is going on. Nathan calms down a bit and thanks her, telling her hes had a wonderful time here, but now they have to go. Stephanie agrees. Nathan heads out the door. Stephanie follows, taking one last wistful look at the cabin.
Philip thinks Melanies father might be a great guy. Melanie doesnt think the odds are good, considering he hooked up with a husband-stealing piece of trash. Philip disagrees, saying the odds are great. Melanie scoffs that he has awful taste in women, and doesnt use protection, so his track record isnt good thus far. Philip reminds Melanie gently that she is tough and smart like Carly, but shes also honest and kind, even if she doesnt let other people see it. He has to wonder where she gets that from.
Carly explains unhappily that by the way Chloe was talking, she thought she knew. Daniel demands to know who else she told. Carly admits that Bo knows. Daniel asks sarcastically if the two were just sharing a little pillow talk, but Carly explains that Bo has known everything about the situation since she returned to Salem. Daniel tells Carly to get the hell out of here and to keep her mouth shut. He asks in a rage if she can handle that. Cowed, Carly apologizes. Daniel threatens that her life wont be worth living if Melanie finds out from anyone other than him. Carly nods and heads off quickly. Daniel sits down across from Chloe with a sigh. Tearfully, she snaps that his dreams have come true, and he is finally a father.
Melanie giggles, saying that she was just picturing Mothers Day, and asks Philip jokingly how he feels about taking Carly, Vivian, and Kate out for lunch. She thinks theyd have to go through a metal detector. Philip admits that hed go as far as getting a food taster, and ensuring that the silverware was plastic. Melanie chuckles, saying shell just take Maggie out. She then tells Philip that she ought to be happy, as she has him and Maggie, and that is a lot. Philip thinks more people than that care about her, and says that he really thinks that Daniel cares for her more than just as a patient. Melanie reminds Philip that she helped save Chloes life. Philip jokes that he forgot she was a hero. Just then, a nurse comes in to take her vitals. Melanie notices that she is new, and the two make small talk. Philip heads off to get Melanie a coffee from the café. The nurse notices Melanies name and assumes shes family to the people that run the research center. Melanie nods. The woman thinks shes lucky to have a fiancée that is both rich and handsome. Melanie agrees and tells the nurse she also used to work here. She asks about one of the other doctors, Nathan Horton, and if he has asked about her, but the nurse doesnt think she has met him. Melanie explains that hes young, with dark hair, and is handsome, but the woman doesnt recognize the description, either. Melanie frowns. The nurse asks if something is wrong. Melanie sighs, admitting that she was just wondering why Nathan hasnt come to see her.
At the Java Café, Nathan tells Stephanie that he is going to stop by the hospital and keep trying to get hold of Maggie. Stephanie suggests that he check to see if Maggie is at the hospital. Nathan agrees, admitting that he needs to check his schedule and go over his caseloads, too. Stephanie groans that vacation is officially over. Nathan agrees that it is, but that now that Melanie and Philip are gone, they dont have to leave Salem to be together, and can even indulge in public displays affection. Nathan kisses her. Stephanie wishes he didnt have to leave. Nathan promises to be back as soon as he catches up on what he missed while he was gone. Stephanie nods and Nathan heads off. She sighs.
Daniel explains that he just found out last night, and has been waiting for the right time to tell her. Chloe thinks he must be very happy. Daniel says that he is actually overwhelmed and furious with Carly. Chloe realizes that Carly was telling the truth, and asks Daniel if its true. He thinks so. Chloe asks if he loved Carly. Daniel says it wasnt like that and that it wasnt serious between him and Carly. Chloe thinks it is now. Daniel agrees. Chloe tearfully remarks that Melanie was so nice to her when she was in the hospital, and now it makes sense that she was so good at her job, since she has two parents for doctors. Daniel hopes this wont change things between him and Chloe, but Chloe thinks that remark is a little naive since he is a father now, and things are never going to be the same.
Carly runs into Rafe at the pier. She finds him staring into the water and jokes that she hopes he isnt planning on taking a dive, as she doesnt want to have to fish him out again. Rafe thinks Carly looks like she is in about a good a mood as he is. Carly nods, saying that when people talk about having one of those days she understands, as she is having one of those lives. Carly then apologizes for complaining and explains that Bo told her about the baby. She asks how Sami is holding up. Rafe isnt sure. Carly thinks she must be reeling. Rafe admits that one minute she is a mess, and the next minute, shes a mess. Rafe says quietly that he knows something is going on.
Sami nervously asks EJ how long he thinks he it will be. EJ isnt sure, but admits that it could take a while. Sami tells EJ how scared she is. He squeezes her arm as she admits that she wishes Rafe were here. EJ recoils. Sami explains that Rafe is her rock, and its hard for her to do this alone. EJ kisses the top of her head, smiling and saying that she isnt alone--she has him.
Philip heads into the Java Café and runs into Stephanie. Shocked, she asks what he is doing here.
Nathan heads into the hospital and over to the nurses station. The new nurse asks if she can help him, and Nathan explains that he is a doctor here. He introduces himself, and the woman says that a patient in room 306 was just asking about him. Nathan asks who that would be. The woman says its Kiriakis--the gunshot victim. Surprised, Nathan asks if Philip was shot, but the nurse says it was his wife. Nathan dashes over to Melanies room and flies inside. Melanie catches sight of him and grins sheepishly.
Carly asks Rafe if he thinks Sami needs to see a professional. Rafe says he isnt sure, admitting that the last thing Carly needs to be thinking about right now is his problems. Carly says that she thinks Sami is lucky to have Rafe, but Rafe says that he doesnt seem to be able to take care of Sami anymore. Carly wouldnt say that, but Rafe sighs, saying that he just isnt sure of much of anything anymore.
Sami apologizes to EJ, admitting that she should be stronger than this. EJ says he understands the kind of pressure she is under right now. Sami still thinks she ought to try to be strong for Sydney. She adds that she wants to thank EJ. He doesnt think she has to do that, but Sami realizes that; she just wants to. She adds that it means everything to her to see all that he has done to help bring Sydney home. She adds that its also nice to see the guy she has always known was inside him come out again.
Carly tells Bo, There's only one person who can take care of Vivian, and that's me.
Daniel rages at Vivian, Cut the crap. And you listen to me.
Nathan tells Melanie, I think you still care about me.
