EJ is back on the phone with Mr. Shin and brings up Shin's son looking for a scholarship and how he could make a call to help get him in. They come to an agreement and EJ hangs up. Justin tells him it was nicely done. Justin hopes it holds until the vote so Stefano doesn't turn any board member. EJ tells him the vote is going to happen in the next five minutes and the axe is going to fall so they just have to hope it's on Stefano's neck and not his.
Stefano's plane begins to land into Salem. Stefano wonders why he has the feeling that EJ is not going to be happy to see him.

Sami says she has to go back and see he's okay. Daniel tells him that his heart rate and blood pressure spiked by seeing him. Sami calls it ridiculous since she saved his life. Daniel says he doesn't know that so he won't let anyone that upsets him get near him. Sami agrees to wait a few minutes. Daniel says he won't let her near him until he decides there's no risk. Sami reluctantly agrees as Daniel walks away.
Stefano returns home with Cecily. They enter the living room where EJ sits. EJ asks Cecily to excuse them for a private word. Stefano sends her to her room. She takes champagne and heads upstairs.
