Max asks, "Have you seen Chelsea tonight?
Nick is still out of breath, "No."
"Well," says Max, "No one can find her."
Nick asks, "Did she turn sideways again?"
Max says, "No, it's not that we can't see her, she's actually missing... gone."
Max gives him the details. Nick thinks it's weird. Morgan tells him about the rapist. Nick calls Billie.
Sami and Lucas sit in her hospital bed. "I wish it could be like this forever," says Sami.
"You mean just us, together," asks Lucas.
"No," says Sami, "I mean with you not talking." Smooches. EJ watches and leaves. Sami tells Lucas there is no choice. Lucas wishes Stefano would wake up dead. He wonders why Sami doesn't just string them along until Stefano dies. Sami says Stefano is smarter than that and tells him about the quickie divorce in Santo Domingo. It looks like Ludicrous may soon be 3 for 3 when it comes to his marriage-quickie divorce ratio.
Kate looks at the kids in the nursery and flashes back to one of her many disownments. A significant zapping opportunity if there ever was one.
Kate sighs, looks at the kids and says, "Your daddy is angry at me right now but I will find a way to make sure we are together for all the Days Of Our Lives. I will spoil you like your father."
EJ comes up behind her, "Which father?" He asks if when Lucas takes them home she will ever see them again. He thinks it was a nice performance in Sami's room when Kate told them the boy looked like Lucas. EJ thinks she's terrified Lucas has banished her, "What would you say if I said I could give you your son back?"
The group at the sorority house fills Billie in on the things that happened at the party, and Chelsea leaving because of the call from security. Billie calls to verify her office called Chelsea. Jett gets right on it. "What did Chelsea look like," asks the security whiz.
"Has it been that long since you've seen her," asks Max.
Billie asks for more details. Her phone rings. She goes off to answer it as the group organizes a search. A somber Billie returns, "That was Jett. No one from our office called Chelsea. She was set up."
Lucas argues. Lucas accuses. Lucas huffs. Lucas rants. He ain't grantin' no stinkin' divorce. Sami says, "You agreed I had to marry EJ."
Lucas snorts, "Yeah, well I take it back. I don't agree to anything."
John Kerry watches, "And they accused me of flip-flopping."
Kate asks what EJ wants. He wants Kate to convince Lucas to divorce Sami. "Been there done that," says Kate, "It doesn't work. Besides I think Sami is already planning to divorce him without me getting involved."
EJ thinks she is but Lucas isn't on board. EJ guarantees Lucas' forgiveness if she cooperates, "What do you say?" Kate stares.
Bambi bounces downstairs with flashlights. The search party assembles. Billie announces that she got the police working on it.
"Darn it," says Morgan, "We were really hoping to find her. Besides, I thought you had to wait 24 hours before the cops would look for a missing person." Billie says she was able to pull strings because Chelsea's father is a cop.
As Billie leaves, Ford comes in, "This better be good. I was in the middle of a hot, crazy dream."
Max tells Ford about Chelsea's disappearance, "Do you know where she is?"
Johnny cries and interrupts Kate and EJ. Kate goes over and quiets him. "You have a way with kids," says EJ.
"There are a lot of things about me that would surprise you," says Kate, "When Lucas was a small kid I could quiet him just by whispering in his ear. It really didn't even matter what I said. But now the last thing he wants to hear is his mommy's voice. The bond between us is broken." EJ insists the bond between them is stretched but not broken. He works on Kate to let him help her. Kate is skeptical. She thinks she's better off playing the contrite mother, "EJ, this time you are on your own."
Sami and Lucas argue about whether or not she should marry EJ. Sami thinks the DiMeras are dangerous and Lucas shouldn't mess with them. "I'm dangerous too," says Lucas, "It's time I proved that."
Ford insists he doesn't know where Chelsea is. Nick leaves to start looking for her. Outside, he gets a call. Chelsea blubbers, "Nick... I'm in trouble. You have to help!"
Lucas decides he isn't going to play fair. When he goes trick-or-treating at the DiMera mansion, after they give him his candy, he'll trick them anyway. Sami says she knows EJ is in love with her and she will use that to destroy him and his entire family.
EJ continues to work on Kate. Kate tells him to get lost. "Your son has a lot of clout with Samantha," says EJ.
"That's love," says Kate, "You wouldn't know anything about that."
EJ points out he and Kate have common goals and he will be disappointed if Sami and Lucas don't get divorced because Kate failed to help.
The Glove yanks the phone away from Chelsea, "If you ever want to see her again, do want I say. I'm going to give you an address. If I see the police I'll kill her." Nick gets the address and writes it on a piece of scratch paper.
We here at Prevuze have an advantage you don't. We have seen the rest of this ridiculous episode. At this point, the only thing that makes sense would be, instead of heading for the mystery address, Nick runs home and leaves the piece of paper with the address on it sitting out where it is visible. The DOOL writers do not have to thank us for clearing up this gaping hole in the imbecilic plot. You may now continue reading but, as always, have those barf bags ready.
Ford gets defensive with Max. They trade threats. Ford is looking forward to wiping the floor with Max. Max is looking forward to cleaning the floor himself. Ford snorts, "I'm outta here."
Sami thinks it will be fun running EJ around in circles. Then she can go back to Lucas and run him in circles. Lucas says EJ won't let her go. He refuses the divorce. Sami gets nasty, "I'm doing this, Lucas, with or without you."
Kate thinks she can win her son back on her own. She watches as a nurse walks up to the twins cribs, removes the signs saying "ROBERTS," and replaces them with signs that say, "HORTON." Kate yanks the dagger from her heart and cries.
Morgan comes back. No news. Max is going to the police station to fill them in while Morgan hangs around the house, "I'm sure Chelsea will be OK, but will you."
"Of course," says Morgan, "I'm tough... a steel magnolia." Max doesn't trust Ford and thinks Morgan should tell him he's not welcome back there again.
Nick enters the sleazy dump. As he sneaks toward the interior, Artemis and DeMarquette come running up. He asks how they got there. They found the address in the apartment and caught a cab, of course. They tell him that's something they did in Vegas all the time. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas, unless you're a kid smart enough to catch a cab out of town. Nick wants them out of there. He hears a noise and decides it's too late, so he asks them to hide and stay quiet. They want to help, but Nick convinces them to stay back. He turns and walks into the jaws of death.
"Welcome, Mr. Fallon," says Mr. Creep.
"What have you done with Chelsea," he asks.
"She's fine," says Creepo. Nick says he wants proof, but doesn't wait. He rushes the dude. Creepo brushes him off and says, "Try that again and she dies."
From the bowels of hell, we hear Chelsea whimpering, "Nick! Please help!"
Lucas thinks a quickie divorce is not the answer. Sami argues. "Let me protect my family from the DiMeras," says Lucas.
"Who's going to protect us from you," asks Sami.
Kate drones, "My son has now removed all traces of me from his life. He ran down to the courthouse while Sami was getting her sponge bath and changed his name. My name. He said he would do it, but I thought he was just angry."
EJ asks, "What do you have to lose now? I can get your son back. Let me help you."
Chelsea screams for help. Nick says it will be OK. He asks the guy what he wants. Of course, he wants the kids, "And I'm getting impatient." Nick says they are with the sitter, and then rushes Creepo. They roll around on the floor.
Kate agrees to work with EJ, "Provided you do what I want."
"Lucas will come running," says EJ, "I promise that."
Kate asks, "How will you accomplish that?"
"By hurting you." Suddenly, Kate sees a few flaws in the plan.
Sami and Lucas yammer on. Just let good ole Lucas handle it and things will be OK. Sami agrees. Lucas scoots her over, gets in and hugs her. He asks her to try to sleep. Sami coos, "Lucas, I love you."
"You know I love you too."
Morgan says she can't ban Ford, "He's a Decker. Even though he's a jackass, the Deckers have donated a lot of money to the school."
Max says, "In my world, people like Ford get their butts kicked for being a jackass."
That turns Morgan on, "I'd like to see that."
Max continues, "If I see him pawing another girl around here, he will find out I'm not just talk."
Morgan can't control herself now. "I like a man who's not just talk," she pants. She gives Max a hot kiss, "Hurry back." You can count on that. Max leaves. Outside the house, Max takes a look back and tries to compose himself.
Nick and Creepo continue to roll around on the floor. Artemis and DeMarquette rush up to help Nick. Creepo has Nick in a combo headlock, half-nelson anaconda-vice hold.
Nick looks up and sees the kids, "RUN!"
The kids take off and Creepo gets up to chase them. Nick grabs his foot and DOWN GOES CREEPO. He gets up, turns and punches Nick in the gut. Nick collapses and Creepo shoves him into a dark room.
Chelsea stands there shaking, "I'm standing on a bomb, Nick. If I move, it's gonna go off."
Nick surveys the scene, "You mean your weight is all that's keeping the bomb from exploding?"
"OMG! SALEM'S GONNA BLOW!"
EJ thinks they have to do something to make Lucas think Kate's life is in danger. Kate is sarcastic, "Assuming he cares whether I live or die."
"He's your son," says EJ, "He loves you. We have to set up an encounter where your life is threatened. It will work. Do we have a deal?"
"Lucas can never know," says Kate, "If he finds out, the deal is off."
"My lips are sealed," says EJ. He says he has to go make arrangements, but promises it will be fun.
After EJ leaves, Kate staggers up to the nursery window and looks at the Horton kids, "I have to do it – so that we can be together."
Lucas and Sami snooze. Sami dreams and whimpers. She hears EJ reeling off all the names in the Brady family as well as a few others, "Eric Brady... Carrie Brady... Rex Brady... John Black... Marlena Evans... Max the dog... Sami "wakes up" and gets out of bed. She walks into a dark mass morgue. Bodies lie covered on tables. Sami whines, "Lucas, what's happening?" A hooded figure approaches.
One of the bodies sits up. The shroud covering him falls. John turns and looks at Sami. Sami jumps out of her skin, "JOHN! YOU'RE DEAD!"
Zombie John talks in a monotone, "We're all dead, Sami." Sami looks at a toe tag, "Hope Brady." She looks at another, "Marlena Evans." She backs off crying, "How is this possible." John comes up to her. "Who did this," asks Sami.
Sami cries, "I can stop this."
"You'd better hurry," says the zombie.
All the zombies sit up. Sami bawls, "I'm not gonna let this happen."
The hooded figure comes closer. He lowers the hood. Sami stares at horrifying zombie EJ.
Lucas wakes Sami and says it was just a dream. Sami panics, "Lucas, I'm getting a divorce. I don't care what you say I'm getting it."
