And The Gloves Come Off
Inside, Sami continues to tell Grace how much she loves her. Roman walks up, "Who's baby is it?"
"It's mine, Dad," says Sami, "I added to my collection."
Hope grills a reluctant Nicole.
Tony sucks on his tube and writes. He thinks, "I want to see the look on your face when you realize Nicole never gave birth to your baby."
Phillip demands Nicole tell the truth.
"Leave me alone," says Nicole, "I need to think."
"If you need to be alone to think we'd have to clear the hospital." Bo hauls Phillip off and tells him to cool it. Stefano wants Nicole to tell what Phillip did to his son.
Tony struggles and tries to write. EJ wonders if what he has to say can't wait. Tony grunts and continues to write.
Bo tells Stefano to back off. Hope tells Nicole she wants an answer. Phillip struts up and gets in Nicole's face, "Don't be putting a DiMera slant on it, either!"
Bo pushes him away, "Shut your damn mouth. You got to tell your story, now it's her turn to tell hers."
Victor joins the party and tells Phillip not to say another word.
Moody Will stomps off. Rafe catches him and continues to lecture, "The real reason she adopted Grace was because..."
Roman asks, "What do you mean this is your baby?" Sami says, "I adopted her."
Sami says, "I adopted her."
Roman is in denial, "No you didn't." Stunned Roman sits, "Sami, where is this coming from?"
Sami asks, "You don't' know where babies come from?" She gives him a cock and bull story about finding Grace at the orphanage. Roman doesn't buy it, "OK, Sami, now tell me the truth."
Tony breaks the lead on his pencil. EJ runs out to get another.
Tony thinks, "You have no idea what's coming to you, brother."
Rafe says Sami was in witless protection program and thought she would never see Will again so she adopted Grace. Even Will can see how stupid that is.
Roman gives Sami the third degree as Caroline watches. Roman thinks Sami might have been just a little impulsive. Sami insists she wasn't. She asks Roman to support and help her. Roman realizes he raised a nitwit and refuses to play along. Caroline arranges flowers. I believe they might just be Buttinias.
Stefano tells Nicole if she considers herself a DiMera to tell them Phillip did this. Lexie steps in and tells him to back off. Bo does the same. Hope says she wants that statement. Nicole screams, "I'm too upset to make a statement now. Just leave me alone." As she walks away and reminds Hope the last time they talked she arrested her for a murder she didn't commit.
Victor tells Phillip he thinks he was doing whatever he could to get the blueprints after he was fired. Bo interrupts just to tell Phillip he'd better hope Nicole backs up his story.
Rafe tells Will to cut Sami some slack. Will explodes, "I've been cutting my mom some slack for sixteen years. In fact, I must be pretty good at it because everyone calls me a slacker."
Rafe defends Sami. He says her kids were alls she talked and thought about in the safehouse, "You're sixteen. You're not the only person in the world. When I was sixteen... just forget it."
Sami goes bonkers and rants at Roman for trying to tell her what to do. Caroline comes up and defends Sami.
Victor thinks he should give Phillip hell for going up against Tony, but he knows Phillip did it since he was pushing him. He apologizes.
Stefano says he wants answers and wants them now. Hope wonders why Stefano is more focused on blaming Phillip than he is on Tony's recovery. Stefano insists he is concerned about Tony and leaves.
Lexie tells Nicole not to let Stefano get to her. Nicole asks if Tony will live. Grim Lexie says, "His chances aren't good. With me as his doctor, his fate is practically sealed."
Nicole snaps her fingers, "Drat the bad luck."
As she leaves Lexie tells Nicole Tony is trying to write something for EJ.
EJ tells Tony Anna is on the way. He encourages him to forget about the message as Nicole walks in. Lexie follows, "What the hell is going on here?"
Caroline sits with Roman and Sami. She welcomes Grace to the circus known as the Brady family. She reminds Roman the timing wasn't good when they adopted Max and Frankie, "And they turned out OK. Frankie got out of town as fast as he could and Max ruined his racing career and went on a mission to have sex with every niece he could get his hands on." Roman reminds Caroline she had OMB to help, but Sami is alone.
Sami jumps in, "I am going into this with my eyes open and my mind closed."
Roman asks if Will has seen her. Sami is silent. Score one for Roman, "Ah... I guess that didn't' go so well, huh?"
The Will vs. Rafe smackdown continues. Rafe tells Will if he backed off that would make Sami very happy.
Lexie lectures Nicole and throws her and EJ out. They leave and Lexie tells Tony to calm down. Outside, EJ says Tony is upset, but having difficulty writing about it.
"The inability to write is common on this show," says Nicole. Hope walks up and continues to badger Nicole for a statement. EJ goes back to talk to Tony. Hope stares. Nicole stares.
Caroline sings the praises of having a huge litter of rugrats around. Sami says she has to leave to buy formula. Caroline congratulates her and granddad. Sami thanks her for her support. Roman softens and smiles.
Phillip says, "I was in charge of the computers when the DiMeras sabotaged them. I would have fired me too." Victor wants to make sure Phillip isn't charged with a felony.
Stefano steps up and threatens, "Charges against Phillip are the least of your worries."
Hope asks Nicole what happened at the pier. Bo pulls Hope away. Nicole whispers, "I swear, Tony, you'd better not say anything to EJ."
EJ watches as Lexie forbids Tony to try to write anything else. "That's OK," says Tony, "I was having a major case of writer's block anyway."
Lexie announces she has to go consult with Daniel, "I want to spread the liability for the malpractice lawsuit to as many doctors as I can." On the way out, she gives EJ the look of death.
EJ tells Tony to relax and gives him a pad and pencil. Tony says, "But this is against doctor's orders."
EJ reminds him, "That doctor was Lexie." Tony decides he'd better start writing.
Will agrees to help Sami but says he won't accept Grace as his sister, "I'll bet in six months she'll forget Grace just like she forgot me." Rafe tells him to get with the program, "Wrap your head around it."
"If I'm going to do that, it had better be a small program," says Will. Rafe leaves.
Roman agrees to be all happy-happy about Grace. He says he meant what he said but he's proud of Sami for ruining the life of yet another kid.
Caroline returns and asks Roman if he's on board. He says he is. Caroline leaves. Roman gets all sappy. Sami thanks and hugs him.
Tony struggles to write. Suddenly, his arm drops and dangles over the side of the bed.
Victor says he hopes that wasn't a threat. Stefano rambles, "You know, in the past, we almost joined forces, but then you take over Titan, can't take the pressure and the gloves come off."
Nicole tells Hope she can't tell her what happened.
Tony's machines go berserk. A doctor rushes in and panics.
Sami and Rafe are outside the pub. Sami tells Rafe Roman bought her orphanage story. Will joins them and Rafe walks away. Will saps out and tells her he wants things to be cool. He says he will help out and see how it goes. Sami hugs. Rafe watches. "I'll be home for dinner," says Will, "as long as you're not cooking." He leaves.
Rafe comes back and Sami says she can't believe the turnaround, "I wonder what happened."
"He's your kid," says Rafe, "Maybe he's bipolar too."
The crash cart team comes flying into Tony's room. EJ stands in the hallway and looks at Tony's scribbled message
Victor says he sympathizes about Tony but says he doesn't want any threats. Stefano insists he doesn't make threats, "If your son is responsible for my son's death, then you can expect me to do what any father would do."
"How can you disown and fire him after he's dead," asks Victor.
Nicole says she has to know if Tony is going to be OK before she makes up her story.
Lexie stands behind the doc as she commands the crash cart team.
"CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP!
Dr. Morbid stops the attempt, "I'm calling it."
Bones looks up at Kirk, "He's dead, Jim."
Lexie the consummate professional orders an assistant, "Please note the time of death." Lexie bawls.
EJ comes out to the waiting crowd. Nicole rushes up, "Is Tony..."
"He had a heart attack," says EJ.
Lexie comes out bearing the bad news, "We did everything we could, except get him a competent doctor. He's gone."
Tears, tears, tears.
Nicole breathes a sigh of relief.
Stefano stares at Phillip.
