At the hospital, Daniel asks Chloe what she is doing here. She hands over his medication, reminding him that he forgot to take his pill. Daniel thanks her as Melanie throws herself into Philips arms. She tells him how cool the surgery was, and how Carly and Daniel had to work on a patient whose organs were reversed. Melanie leads Philip off to tell him about it as Chloe remarks that she didnt know that Carly helped Daniel with the surgery. Daniel claims it was no big deal, but Carly says Daniel really saved the day, and apologizes to Chloe for stealing him from her. Daniel suggests they go get some coffee, but Chloe reminds him coldly that he needs to take his pill and test his blood pressure before they go anywhere. She huffs off to his office. Carly asks Daniel if he still thinks its a good idea for her to stay with them. Daniel says he does and heads off after Chloe. Just then, Vivian walks in and greets Carly, saying its a surprise to find her here without some man hanging around. Carly glares.
In a waiting room nearby, Melanie sighs, admitting to Philip that she thought Chloe was lightening up a little since she invited them both over for brunch. Philip thinks Chloe is trying really hard to make things work. Melanie pours some coffee, saying that she thought she and Chloe were getting along until Chloe walked in and gave her that look a few minutes ago. Philip assures Melanie that it had nothing to do with her and everything to do with Carly. Melanie thinks its more complicated than that.
Stephanie sips a martini at the Cheatin Heart. She picks up a pool cue and prepares to take a shot as Nathan heads in. He chuckles, telling her how sophisticated she looks. She glares and starts to hurry off, but Nathan begs her to wait.
Sami mopes at the police station. Roman heads in and asks whats wrong, and Sami says everything is. She goes on to explain that Rafe is in a holding cell because he would rather be there than with her, Will has moved out because she is unbearable, and the worst part of it all is that Will and Rafe are right about her--she has made a mess of her life and this is all her fault.
At the DiMera mansion, Stefano guesses that the truth is too much to ask for. He starts to head off with this laptop, but EJ shouts at him to wait, finally admitting that he was the one that kidnapped Sydney. Stefano vows that he will live to regret it, but EJ doesnt think so. Stefano admits that he may be right, and that Annas confession may not be enough to convict him of kidnapping, but he thinks it is more than enough to give Sami custody of his kids, and a restraining order against him to boot. EJ, shaking, admits that may be true, but Stefano wont take that video to the authorities. Stefano scoffs, asking how EJ plans on stopping him. EJ vows, By any means necessary, old man.
At the Java Café, Kate tells Will that she wants his moving in to be his decision, and that she doesnt want him to feel as if she has manipulated him in any way. Will nods. Kate thinks he seems upset, and wonders if he is having second thoughts, but Will shakes his head, asserting that its impossible for him and his mother to continue living together. He adds that he does have one fear--that if his mother finds out he is living with his grandmother, she wont allow him to see Sydney anymore.
Roman asks Sami why Will moved out, and she explains that Will is angry because he took Sydney out for a walk, ran into Nicole, and let her say goodbye to the baby. Tearfully, Sami goes on to say that Will told her that Sydney called Nicole Mama and that she was upset about him letting it happen, so she let him have it. Roman thinks Will has certainly found a way to pay Sami back and threatens to go talk to him. Sami doesnt want him to, but Roman thinks Will was idiotic for letting Nicole anywhere near that baby. Sami explains that Will is angry about more than just that, and that a big part of it is the fact that EJ is still living with her. Roman scoffs. Sami reminds him she told him to begin with that this was all her fault, adding that Rafe is in custody and is furious at her too. Roman wonders why, and Sami reluctantly admits that she wanted Rafe to have an alibi, so she lied to Hope. Roman groans. Sami guesses he is angry, too. Roman pulls a chair over, admitting that he thought things would be peaceful for a while after they got Sydney back. Roman hopes she sees what is at the root of all her problems. Sami says she does, and that its obviously just her. Roman shakes his head, saying he thinks its EJ. Sami stares in surprise.
Stefano thinks he and EJ have reached an impasse. EJ disagrees, saying that this is very much like his stupid chess games--Stefano makes a move, and he responds. Stefano admits that eh could fold and hand Annas confession over to EJ, or he can defy him. EJ dares him to try, warning Stefano that that video wont be leaving this room. Stefano scoffs that this isnt the only copy, and that all he has to do is pick up the phone, but EJ vows not to let him. Stefano wonders if EJ plans on following him around all the time. EJ remarks that he wont have to do that if Stefano is dead.
Carly asks if Vivian is here because shes sick, and hopes its nothing trivial. Vivian explains that she is actually waiting for Victor to get out of his board meeting, as they have a lot of plans to make for the wedding. Carly snaps that she at least Vivian has the something old part covered. Vivian ignores the comment, saying pointedly that Carly must miss Bo terribly now that he is out of town. Carly replies she does. Vivian wonders if she feels vulnerable with no one around to protect her. Carly claims she doesnt. Vivian remarks that Lawrence felt safe too until Carly drove a knife into him. Just then, Daniel walks over. He warns Vivian to back off before he calls the men in the white coats and submits Vivian to a long overdue psychiatric evaluation. Carly grins.
At the pier, Madeline confides in Gabi that she was afraid that the two of them had started off on the wrong foot and that this situation with her husband and Gabis brother wouldnt make things any easier. Gabi claims that there is no situation, as her brother would never do anything like this. Madeline thinks Rafe is lucky to have such a beautiful and loyal sister. She then asks Gabi for a favor, explaining that her husband has a volatile temper. She hopes Gabi wont hold anything he does against Chad. Gabi vows that she would never do that. Madeline is glad to hear it, as she think Gabi has made quite an impression on her son. She goes on to say that Chad actually questioned his fathers story, something one just doesnt do when it comes to Charles. Gabi is surprised, but Chad jumps in, saying that he just asked his father if he were sure, because the more he thinks about it, the more he believes that Gabi was right all along, and that her brother wouldnt do something like this. Gabi smiles gratefully.
Kate doesnt believe that her grandson will lose ties with his sisters and brother, as Sami loves her children, despite her faults. Kate suggests that Will move in with her for now, as she is sure that after things have calmed down, he and his mother will be able to work things out. Will thinks this is weird, as he is moving in with the DiMera family because EJ moved into his place. Kate sighs. Will wonders if she knows what EJ is up to.
Sami claims that EJ staying with her is just temporary--until he is able to handle his father. Roman doesnt think handling Stefano is a temporary job. Sami reminds Roman sternly that EJ is the father of two of her children, and that he has talked her off the ledge again and again. Roman curses, wondering if she has forgotten Graces funeral, and the way EJ served her with custody papers while she was burying a child. Sami thinks EJ has changed, but Roman claims that EJ is a DiMera, and they dont change.
Stefano, shocked, asks if EJ is really threatening to kill his own father. EJ reminds him that he played God with his life and sided with his greatest enemy. Stefano protests that he tried to protect EJ, but in a voice full of emotion, EJ shouts back that Stefano took his child once before, and he cant believe he has the nerve to threaten to do so again. EJ shakes his head, vowing not to let Stefano do it.
Sami grabs her coat angrily, telling Roman with sarcasm that its great to be at the end of your rope and have your father tell you what an idiot you are. Roman wonders if Sami has forgotten what EJs last name is. She says she hasnt, but she also knows what it feel like to want people to think you have changed. She adds that EJ has agonized with her over Sydney, and that he is the only person in the world that knows what she was going through. Roman doesnt think Rafe was exactly a disinterested bystander. Sami snaps that Rafe is the one that cant seem to forgive her, not the other way around. She adds that she feels right now as if EJ is the only person that really accepts her for who she is. Roman thinks EJ has Sami right where he wants her, then.
Kate admits that she has no idea what is going on with EJ, and all that she knows is that he and Stefano have locked horns, and that she feels badly for both of them. Will thought things would settle down once they got Sydney back, but nothing has. Kate agrees. Will then confides in her that it feels to him as if something is really wrong.
Stephanie tells Nathan that she isnt leaving, as she is on a date. Nathan apologizes, but Stephanie tells him not to be sorry, as she isnt. Just then, her date, Aaron, walks over, telling her he was able to score those tickets she wanted. Stephanie is glad to hear it, and introduces him and Nathan to each other. She then explains that she and Aaron are celebrating his recent promotion. Nathan congratulates him begrudgingly, and then asks him if the tickets are for the concert next Friday. Aaron admits that they are. Nathan tells him angrily that Stephanie wont be able to go that night, as she has other plans. Aaron stares, confused. Stephanie is stunned.
Melanie reminds Philip that Chloes fiancé has a kid, and the mother of his kid works at the hospital with him. She thinks Chloe walked in, saw the three of them together, and felt they were family unit that she isnt a part of. Philip thinks that would make anyone insecure. Melanie sarcastically remarks that Chloe is both beautiful and talented, so she really has a lot to be insecure about. Philip asks Melanie to cut her some slack, but she assures him she doesnt have a problem with Chloe--Chloe has a problem with Carly.
Vivian wonders how Daniels godfather will feel when he hears that Daniel has been threatening her. Daniel snaps that he doesnt care what Victor thinks, and that if he marries Vivian, then that will give him grounds to commit Victor, too. Vivian gapes. Chloe walks over and watches as Daniel warns Vivian to never to harass another member of the staff here while they are on duty. Carly smiles triumphantly as Daniel threatens to call security and pres charges if she does so again. Vivian squeaks. Daniel adds that he isnt scared of Victor, either. Carly notices Chloe glaring and loudly say that she has kept Daniel from Chloe for too long. She adds that nothing is going to happen here anyway, and grins at Vivian. Daniel admits that he needs to get back to Chloe. Carly apologizes to her for this, but Chloe admits begrudgingly that its alright, as she had better get used to changes in plans if shes going to be the wife of a doctor. The two then head off. Vivian asks sarcastically if Daniel is Bos understudy. Carly snaps at Vivian to shut up and listen to her carefully. She goes on to say that she doesnt need Bo or Daniel to take care of her, especially as she took care of Lawrence herself. Vivian protests, but Carly snaps at her to shut up. She adds that its clear that Vivian came here to rattle her and to pick a fight, so shes going to get one. Vivian glares as Carly explains that while Vivians weapon of choice may be a hair comb, hers is a syringe, as all it would take is one little air bubble, and the world would think that Vivian had a stroke. She adds hastily that she really doesnt want Vivian to die, as she wants her brain to be working perfectly while she tells her stories about Lawrence. Vivian grumbles. Melanie and Philip head over as Carly shouts that its time for Vivian to leave--now.
Stephanie claims she has no idea what Nathan is talking about, as she doesnt have plans next Friday. Nathan squeezes Aarons shoulder and asks him pointedly how his shoulder is doing. Aaron stammers, telling Stephanie that hell call her about next Friday. He hurries off. Stephanie scoffs. Nathan tells her that he wouldnt count on Aaron calling if he were her. Stephanie demands to know who the hell Nathan thinks he is.
Sami sarcastically thanks Roman for all his support. Roman reminds her that she just told him that she thought her life was a wreck, but Sami snaps that she didnt expect him to agree with her. Roman admits that no one should have to go through what Sami did, and while he even understands why she got closer to EJ while Sydney was gone, she mustnt forget who EJ is. She insists that EJ is Johnny and Sydneys father, but Roman doesnt want her to forget how EJ reacted when she told him Grace was his. Sami claims EJ was angry at the time that she lied, but he has forgiven her. Roman thinks that is something else DiMeras never do.
EJ thinks Stefanos arrogance has gotten the better of him, and that he cant comprehend what the stakes are. Stefano scoffs. EJ cant believe Stefano would have the gall to take his child from him even though he was just paying his father back for what he did, and that he would hand his grandchildren over to a woman he hates. Stefano claims that he is thinking of Sydney and Johnny, as a man that would use his precious children as pawns, and make everyone think that they died a horrible death doesnt deserve to have children at all. EJ snaps at him not to dare say that, adding firmly that Stefano is no longer his father.
Chloe and Daniel head into the pub and take a seat as Daniel explains to Chloe that he thinks Bo has a point, as Vivian cant be expected to keep her promise to stay away from Carly. Shocked, Chloe asks if this means that Carly would move in with them. Daniel nods, saying that it would only be until Bo gets back. Chloe isnt so sure that will work out, and wonders if theres another option. Daniel nods, saying that they could move into Bos place, or he could. Chloe stares, stunned, as Daniel assures her that theyll do whatever works best for her.
Vivian claims that Carly is cracking, and she likes that. Carly snaps that she wont like what comes next. Philip intervenes at this point, asking what Vivian is doing here. She claims she was simply fending off a maniac, and asks Philip if he didnt see Carly attacking her. Philip claims that all he saw was Vivian provoking Carly, and he suggests that she get out of here, go home and go to hell. Vivian admonishes him, but Philip doesnt care if she tells his father or not. Vivian complains that everyone is on Carlys side and huffs off. Melanie heads over, saying that it looked as if Carly might hit her. Carly apologizes, explaining that she normally doesnt lose control like that, but Melanie understands, as Carly had a tough surgery earlier. Carly thinks her father was amazing. Melanie agrees, and admits that Carly did pretty well herself. She guesses she has good genes on both sides. Carly agrees. Melanie then asks Carly for a favor, saying that she wants to get back into nursing school, and would like Carly to put in a good word for her. She adds hurriedly that she knows she fell behind, but she would work really hard to make it up. Carly think the timing is perfect, telling Melanie that this is the best news shes heard all along time. She hugs Melanie, who smiles, surprised. Vivian watches from around the corner and glares.
Kate heads off to get some coffee for herself and Will as Madeline, Chad, and Gabi head into the Java Café. Madeline promises Gabi that while they are waiting for Charles to come around, shell do everything in her power to expedite her brothers release. Gabi is surprised, but Madeline doesnt think it makes sense to treat a decorated FBI agent like a common criminal. Gabi thanks her profusely, wondering if there is anything she can do. Madeline asks her not to worry, as it would be a shame to put any lines on her pretty face. Just then, Will walks over, asking Chad how his father is. He says hes fine, and that theyre going to be keeping him in the hospital for a little while for observation. He adds that Rafe is in custody for attacking him. Will, surprised, says that Rafe shouldnt be in jail, as he would never do anything like this. Madeline then asks Chad to get her some coffee while she grabs a table. Chad heads off with Will and Gabi, noting that thats his mom. Gabi thinks she is great, as she is going to help Rafe. Chad wonders why shes interested in doing so. Kate comes back with her and Wills coffee, and she Madeline catch sight of one another. Clearly recognizing one another, they both stare in surprise.
Sami sarcastically suggests that Roman gather Brady and Rafe together, and then all three can start the Everything is EJ DiMeras Fault club. Roman smiles, saying that not everything is EJs fault, as Stefano has a hand in it, too. Sami sighs, telling Roman that she has to do what she thinks is right for her kids, and that means having a good and honest relationship with their father, even if it drives Roman crazy. She huffs off.
Stefano tells EJ with emotion that the truth is that he will always be his father. EJ sniffles tearfully, and tells his father that the saddest thing is that he was just remembering being a child, and what life was like before he knew Stefano existed. He then admits that he wishes he could go back there again.
Daniel asks Chloe in surprise if shed be comfortable staying at Bos hose. Chloe demands to know if he would. Daniel reminds her that this is about protecting Carly, and asks Chloe if she thinks moving in with Bo would be best. Chloe protests that she doesnt want that at all and begrudgingly agrees to let Carly move in with them. Daniel thinks it sounds as if she still as some doubts and hopes Chloe isnt threatened, as she ought to know by now how much he loves her. Chloe claims she does know that, but she doesnt think this is a good time, as Daniel is still recovering from hitting his head. Daniel swears that he is fine, and that it isnt as if he plans on duking it out with Vivian, though that would be fun. He adds that he just wants to make sure that Vivian knows someone is looking out for Carly. Just then, Daniels pager goes off. He groans, telling Chloe he has to get back to the hospital. He promises to call her and hurries off. On the way out, he hurriedly greets Father Matt. Father Matt heads over and joins Chloe. He explains that he came by to see Caroline, who is still in L.A., but hes glad that Chloe is here. He wonders if she got her secretarys message about Chloe and Daniel finishing up their pre-cana marriage classes. Chloe apologizes, as things have been crazy lately. Father Matt reminds her theyre running out of time, and that hed hate to have to change their wedding date. Chloe sighs. Father Matt wonders if everything is alright.
Melanie and Philip head into Maggies kitchen. Philip barks at someone over the phone that he is working on it, and that they cant expect him to make the first person he sees Titans new roving reporter. Suddenly, Philip catches sight of Melanie and tells himself that actually, that isnt such a bad idea.
Nathan gets that Stephanie is angry at him for butting in, but he assures her she doesnt know this guy, as he comes into the hospital a few times a month complaining about various injuries, but he never wants an x-ray; he just want a prescription for oxycodone. Stephanie hopes that isnt true, but Nathan says it is. He adds that Stephanie has already had to deal with a guy like him, so she doesnt need a jerk like Aaron on top of it. He apologizes for not handling the situation correctly, admitting that he is just worried about Stephanie.
Sami heads into her place and finds Will packing up a few last things. Sami is glad to see him, as she really wants to finish the conversation they started. She admits that she was just talking to her dad, and she admitted to him that she overreacted about Will letting Nicole say goodbye to Sydney. She adds that she also should have explained to him that EJ staying here is simply temporary. Will sighs, explaining that he wont be moving in with his dad and Nathan. Confused, Sami asks why his bags are packed, then. Will informs her that he is moving in with his Grandma Kate. Sami gapes.
Stefano sighs, telling EJ that he doesnt know what has happened to him the past few months. EJ picks up a picture of Sydney and stares at it sadly as Stefano declares that he has always tried to do what is best for his family, and what is best for Johnny and Sydney. EJ bites his lip and puts the photo down. Stefano says he is sorry, but he has to do this. EJ picks up a letter opener, telling Stefano that he has no choice but to stop him, then.
Chloe finishes telling Father Matt about the debacle with Carly, explaining that Daniel thinks he needs to protect her for Melanies sake. Father Matt guesses that doesnt sit well with Chloe. She hopes he doesnt think she is a terrible person. Father Matt jokes that most women would be thrilled to have the mother of their fiancés child as a houseguest. Chloe smiles ruefully as Father Matt asks her if Daniel really doesnt get that he is asking a lot from her. Chloe shrugs, saying that Daniel gave her the option to refuse, but if she had, he would have moved into Bos house with Carly while Bo is away. She adds that Daniel told her she could come too, but he didnt seem as if he really wanted her there. Father Matt jokes that Chloe is marrying a clueless man. She laughs, saying that Daniel is actually very nice, and would do anything for his daughter. She just doesnt think he understands, though. Father Matt thinks that Daniel doesnt realize how Chloe feels about this. Chloe shakes her head, saying that what she meant is that Daniel doesnt see that Carly is a manipulative bitch.
Melanie, surprised, asks Philip if he really wants her to be the roving reporter for Titan TV. Philip thinks shed be a natural. Melanie reminds him she has no idea what she is talking about, but Philip claims the girl that just quit didnt either; they just marketed her as having a unique perspective. Philip begs her to do it, as the audience will fall in love with her just like he did. Melanie reminds him that it took a while for him to fall in love with her. Philip smiles. Melanie then says that having a good job she isnt qualified for sounds good and all, but she cant do it. Philip guesses this is because of the nursing program. Melanie admits thats part of it, but theres more to it than that.
Nathan doesnt blame Stephanie for jumping down his throat, since he did cancel their date. Stephanie admits he let her down as nicely as he could, and that if he cant get over Melanie, then it isnt his fault. Nathan wishes he could. Stephanie thinks it will happen eventually, as she and Philip were getting ready to be married this time last year. Neither of them thought they could move on, but they did. Nathan wonders how they managed to do it. Stephanie explains that they both fell for someone else.
Gabi tells Madeline and Chad that she has to get back to work. Madeline tells her how nice it was to meet her, and that she hopes they can do this again sometime. Gabi does too, and thanks Madeline again for agreeing to help her brother. She promises to see Chad around and heads off. Madeline thinks shes a lovely young woman. Chad reminds her that his father thinks shes trash, and he guesses his mother doesnt approve either. Madeline does think that Gabi is too young for Chad. Kate walks out, and Chad says goodbye to her. Madeline stares off into space. Chad asks whats wrong, but Madeleine claims nothing is. The two make small talk about Will moving into the DiMera mansion. Madeline hopes that Chad will steer clear of that family considering all the trouble theyve given him. Chad explains that he and Will arent really friends. Madeline is glad to hear it, as he last thing Chad needs is more dealings with the DiMeras. Kate stares in through the window at Madeline. Madeline stares back. Kate heads off.
Sami tells Will there is no way in hell he is moving into that house. Will wonders why its ok for EJ to move in here, but its not ok for him to move in there. Sami snaps that its just temporary. Will snaps that him staying at the DiMera mansion will just be a temporary arrangement, too. Sami declares that hell only do this over her dead body. Will doesnt care, and informs his mother that hell see her around later--or not. He then heads off with his bags. Sami scoffs.

Father Matt tells Chloe that she needs to have an honest talk with Daniel, and asks her to promise that shell do so. She does, and Father Matt asks her to call him to tell him how it went. She agrees, and Father Matt heads off. Chloe sighs, wondering if shes supposed to tell Daniel she hates Carlys guts. The camera pans over to Vivian who is standing nearby. She chuckles to herself, welcoming Chloe to the club.
Philip brings Melanie some tea. She explains that she thinks working at the hospital will help her get closer to her dad and to Carly. She thanks Philip for offering her the job, however. Philip replies that he just wants her to be happy. Melanie wonders how she could not be happy with a husband like him. She then thanks him for understanding.
Nathan tells Stephanie that he wouldnt have put the brakes on their relationship so quickly if he didnt think she was special. Stephanie says she wasnt complaining, as she knows where she stands. She hopes he understands that she knows there are other guys out there for her, and claims that she isnt as fragile as Nathan thinks she is. Hes glad to hear it. Nathan then tells her he has good seats for the concert Friday, and perhaps she can go with him since things didnt work out with Aaron. Stephanie tells Nathan that she would love to and pulls him in for a kiss.
EJ brandishes the knife at Stefano. Stefano shakes his head sadly. EJs eyes fill with tears. He throws the letter opener across the room and sinks into a chair with a sob. Stefano comes over, and EJ grabs his hand. Stefano tells EJ gently that he will always love him, no matter what happens. EJ nods tearfully. Just then, Sami bursts in, demanding to know what the hell EJ thinks he is doing. EJ stands up quickly and wipes his eyes. Sami stares, stunned.
