Sami tells him that he'll be very happy that she's there because she's come to save his life. EJ assumes it's a metaphor. Sami tells him that she's serious so EJ tells her to begin. Sami explains that she saw a guy installing a security camera and it reminded her about the safety cameras all around Salem. Sami tells EJ that they are everywhere so there could be proof out there that EJ threw the gloves away and that someone else picked them up. EJ excitedly hugs Sami and thanks her.
