Kate wonders when Sami ever cared about what's right. Kate says that the only person important to Sami has always been herself. Kate wants to benefit from Sami's self-absorption.

Kate insists that there's no way Madison could prove that Sami told her anything. Sami thinks the idea is insane. Kate tells Sami that she would be screwing up a once in a lifetime job opportunity. Kate tells Sami that she would move up the corporate ladder by being a team player but if not, she will be fired.
Marlena asks Will when this all happened. Will tells her that it was when Johnny was missing. Marlena doesn't think it makes sense but Will says nothing Sami does make sense. Will points out that Rafe was the one that found Johnny and then Will had to go find Sami. Will explains how he went to the DiMera Mansion to tell EJ that they found Johnny but walked in on Sami and EJ having sex so he got out of there before they saw him. Will wishes he could erase the picture from his mind because he knew Sami was selfish but wishes he never had to know what a heartless, evil slut that she really is. Marlena reminds Will that Sami is still his mother and loves him. Will wonders what kind of mother she is and disagrees that Sami loves him or Rafe or even Johnny.

Brady claims to treat her like he would treat anyone. Madison points out that Brady didn't even want to hear why she thought it was the better idea.

Marlena asks if Rafe knows about what happened. Will says he's sure Rafe doesn't know because Sami would never admit it. Marlena suggests it might not be a good idea to let Rafe know. Will thinks he owes it to Rafe to let him know but he knows Rafe would then leave and Johnny, Allie, and Sydney would lose the only good thing in their life. Will doesn't want that to happen but feels that Sami doesn't deserve Rafe and Rafe deserves the truth. Will admits that he is too scared to be the one to ruin the family so he doesn't know what to do.

Marlena says she know Sami made a terrible mistake but must have been filled with fear when Johnny was missing and she thought they lost him forever. Will questions if she had to have sex with EJ to make herself feel better and thinks it's a poor excuse. Marlena tries to explain that the fear and pain made them do something that they wouldn't normally do. Will doesn't think it matters why Sami did it because she cheated on Rafe with EJ. Will talks about how Sami slept with EJ after he's hurt their family so many times. Will points out that they don't know that it was even the only time. Marlena believes it was the only time and that she loves Rafe which is why she wanted to renew her vows. Will wonders how Marlena can defend Sami.
