Nick confronts Sami in the waiting room and tells her that she blew it and now it's all over. Sami tells him he must be exhausted and it's not a good time for this conversation. Nick disagrees and hopes Sami will for once think before she acts because her actions could've killed her son's child.

EJ warns Rafe about forming an alliance with Kate. Rafe says there's no alliance as he's just relieved that she can be rational. EJ reminds him of Kate's marriage to Stefano for a long time. EJ tells Rafe that it would be a mistake to let his pain over losing Sami cloud his judgment over Will and Gabi.
