Inside Daniel's hospital room, guilt-ridden Chloe can't take it any more. She breaks down and shouts, "I AM SO SORRY! PLEASE FORGIVE ME!
"For what," asks Melanie.
"I almost started to sing something," says Chloe, as she has a fleshback to her little peccadillo with Philadillo.
Nathan and Stephanie are at the Cheatin' Heart having a couple brews. Stephanie says she's having a great time on her date. "I can guess why," says Nathan, "A certain someone isn't here with us." Nathan has all the confidence of a guy about to jump out of a plane using a hankie for a parachute.
Rafe shows up at the DiMera mansion and Stefano welcomes him. Stefano says he's concerned about Sami coming to live there, "I thought we should discuss it. Rafe says his situation with Sami is none of Stefano's business. "What," asks Stefano, "You don't love her any more?"
Sami attempts to help EJ. She searches for a cell phone to call for help, but can't find either hers or his. She says she has to go for help. EJ doesn't want her to do that, "You stay here." He mumbles and starts to get up. They fall into each other's arms. Closer... Closer... Closer...
Stefano asks again if Rafe has feelings for Sami. Rafe thinks Stefano is really asking if Sami moves in, will Rafe make trouble, "Next time you have a dumb question use the phone." Stefano says he's the head of the family and has to be aware of everyone's feelings. Rafe assumes it's EJ that wants Sami to move in. He can't understand why EJ wants to be there since he hates Stefano's guts. I can answer that," says Stefano, "One big happy family — Familia feliche."
"No thanks," says Rafe, "I already ate. What I want to know is why did EJ change his mind?"
Sami screams for help. She turns back to EJ and begs him to wake up, then panics and calls for help again. Sami takes panic to new levels as Rudyard Kipling walks by crafting a poem, "If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs..." He see's Sami swirling into the abyss of hysteria, "Oh, hell, forget it. It was a bad idea for a poem anyway."
Carly insists she hasn't done anything to Chloe. Vivian, naturally doesn't agree and they bicker, "This is all about you, you homewrecker!"
Daniel breaks in and asks what Chloe did. Phillip steps in, "She didn't tell you?"
Chloe tosses her big mouth into the ring, "Daniel, I'm sorry, but you need to hear the truth."
Stefano pontificates, "Time heals all wounds, or is it time wounds all heels..."
Rafe says this doesn't have anything to do with time, "EJ did a complete 180°." Stefano claims his illness had something to do with EJ's about-face. Rafe doesn't agree, "If EJ knew you were at death's door he'd grab a shovel and start digging."
Sami performs CPR and screams, "You are not going to die, EJ. You are not dying. Don’t you dare die on me, EJ!" CENSORED.
Sami dives in with mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. EJ gasps and breathes.
Phillip gives Chloe a look that could kill. Not surprisingly, she decides what she was going to say was not important. Daniel tells her to go ahead anyway.
"Phillip and I are old friends," says Chloe, "Friends with benefits. I told him about our fight. He told me how upset he was." Magnanimous Daniel stops her and takes all the blame, "I'd like to have a do-over."
Phillip looks at Chloe's boobs, "I'd like to have a do-over myself."
Daniel turns to Phillip, "I just want to thank you for (say it with him) being there for Melanie."
"Well," says Phillip, "Look at that. All of our problems got worked out." Tra-la, tra-la.
Nathan says Melanie told him what she wrote in that letter. Stephanie is on the edge of her seat, "And..."
"And...," says Nathan, "she made it clear that she and Phillip are 100%, and I know I'm over her."
Stefano says he and EJ put their differences aside for the children. He says they also agree Samantha is an unfit mother, "She's impulsive and lies at the drop of a hat."
"There aren't enough hats in Salem for that," says Rafe.
Stefano says his grandchildren come first, "So if that means Samantha lives here so we can keep an eye on things... so be it."
Doc Baker twirls EJ's platinum card and flashes back to the mugging, "If he never wakes up I'm home free. Either way the money is there." He makes a call, "Santos, it's Dick Baker. I need you to hack in and get a bank card PIN number. The card is in the name of... Elvis DiMera."
Sami whines and blathers. She assures EJ they will get help. He tries to get up and they again slip into each other's arms. This time... they kiss. Out in the audience, the sun comes out on the Ejami side. Birds chirp and flowers bloom. The Safe's throw tomatoes.
Outside, Phillip gets a call from Shanghai. He leaves to take it and Chloe walks up to Carly. She says she's sorry for what she said earlier. No prob for Carly. Vivian listens. Chloe thanks Carly for saving Daniel's career. Carly insists it was Dr. Yang and they form a lifelong friendship right on the spot.
Stephanie says she's trying to believe Nathan. Nathan insists Stephanie is in his heart as Adrienne walks up. She tells them Justin recovered from the mugging, "Not that I'm in the loop." Nathan goes for more beer. Adrienne gushes over their relationship and Stephanie tells her Nathan's thing for Melanie has played itself out. Translation: Nathan and Melanie will set a wedding date just as soon as she finds out what Phillip did and kicks him to the curb.
Sirens sound in the background as Sami grabs herself a heapin' helpin' of EJ. EJ grabs back. Sami comes up for air and calls for help, "We're over here!"
An EMT tech comes up and calls, "Mobile 62... Mobile 62, I need an ambulance at pier 16." An ambulance comes careening down the dock and splashes into the river.
Stefano and Rafe say... not much new. Rafe says, "I know the real reason that EJ wants Sami back."
Daniel asks what happened between Melanie and Phillip. Melanie tells him about telling Phillip about her feelings for Nathan, and the fact that Phillip saw Nathan kiss her, "It was a goodbye kiss but Phillip thought it was a 'hello there' kiss. Melanie says she assured him she has no more feelings for Nathan, "I think it made our marriage stronger."
Phillip and Chloe are at the Java Café. Phillip says he's glad Chloe didn't say anything, "What a mistake!"
Chloe asks, "What were we thinking?"
"Thinking," says Phillip, "I knew there was something we forgot to do. Melanie told me everything." Chloe says she also knows Daniel wasn't at a motel with Carly. She wonders who was feeding her lies. They agree their little tryst can never come out.
Vivian and Gus are back at the Kiriakis mansion. Vivian is upset because things aren't working out the way she wants.
Rafe's attention span is shorter than a gnat's tail, so we don't learn the real reason he thinks EJ wants Sami back. We do learn Rafe thinks Sami won't be at the DiMera mansion long if she goes there to live. Stefano says they will do everything they can to have her stay. EJ thinks the whole thing doesn't add up, "You've got something on EJ. What is it?"
They wheel EJ into the hospital. Sami tells Lexie EJ was attacked. Lexie goes into action. EJ survives anyway. He lies on his gurney and moans, "Samantha..."
Stephanie says Nathan knows all about the letter and Adrienne says she hopes things work out. She also tells Stephanie she and Justin are over. Nathan comes back with the beer. He gets a call from the hospital and goes off to take it. Adrienne says she thinks Stephanie really has it bad. "We're on the right track," says Stephanie, "There is no doubt in my mind."
"If there were doubt in your mind," says Adrienne, "It would be very lonely."
Daniel thinks Melanie made her marriage stronger by being honest. He gives Maggie credit for teaching Melanie to do that. Melanie protests, "But you're honest and open."
"I am no saint," says Daniel, "I've made mistakes. In fact, the biggest mistake I ever made is in the room with me right now."
Phillip and Melanie discuss the difference between right and wrong. Finding no significant difference, they change the subject as Carly walks in. Phillip decides to get to the hospital and check on Melanie. He leaves and Carly tells Chloe she looks upset. Is everything OK?
Stefano says EJ is moving back in because they are family. "You got that right," says Rafe, "The Addams Family."
Lexie calls Stefano and tells him about EJ's injuries. Stefano tells Rafe about the attack and they both leave.
Baker tries to convince Santos to hack into EJ's account.
EJ groans and holds his head. He asks what happened and Sami tells him he was attacked. EJ has no memory of it. He says he remembers Sami being there, and thanks her for her help.
Sami smiles, "You're already showed me your gratitude." EJ doesn't remember. Sami flashes back to the kiss and sighs.
Stephanie and Adrienne talk about her relationship with Nathan. Stephanie assures her, "He's the one."
Adrienne asks, "And what was it you said about Jeremy?"
Stephanie thinks for a minute, "I said he's the one."
Adrienne asks, "And what did you say about Max?"
"He's the one."
"He's the one."
"And the Salem U Men's lacrosse team?"
"I get your point," says Stephanie.
Stephanie changes the subject and insists Adrienne and Justin are soul mates. Without a soul. Adrienne advises Stephanie not to let Nathan go. Nathan comes back and says he has to go back to the hospital. He promises to make it up to Stephanie. They share a kiss 'n go. As Nathan walks out, Stephanie looks at a hot guy playing pool across the room, "Maybe he's the one."
Phillip comes in to see Daniel. Melanie has gone to get something so Phillip and Daniel have a little chat. Daniel tells him Melanie told him the truth and he doesn't have to walk on eggshells. That's not exactly eggs Phillip has stepped in. Daniel says, "No father ever thinks any guy is good enough for his daughter, even if he's only known she's his daughter for about fifteen minutes, but you come pretty close. Treat her right just like you did tonight. Hurt her and I'll break your neck."
Robert De Niro walks into the room, "It goes like this..." He holds up two fingers and points them toward his eyes, "I am watching..." He points the two fingers toward Daniel, "YOU!"
Vivian worries, "If Chloe tells Carly what I did... I can't let that happen."
Carly says she thinks Chloe seemed tense when she came in. She advises her to put the argument with Daniel behind her. The hospital calls and Carly has to get back. She leaves. Chloe stares.
Stefano finds Lexie at the hospital. She tells him about the attack on EJ. Rafe stands in the background and watches.
EJ asks how he showed Sami his gratitude. Sami brushes it off as Rafe sticks his head in the door.
Vivian decides she'll have the nurse and the hotel clerk eliminated, then changes her mind, "My goose is cooked." Then she has an epiphany, "Brilliant! I've nailed it, Gus. I've nailed it."
Adrienne tells Stephanie she is glowing. Stephanie says, "I know he doesn't love me the same way I love him but I think he's heading that direction. We are on our way."
Outside, Chloe calls Phillip. She thanks him. "Yeah," says Phillip, "We dodged a bullet tonight. We have to keep it quiet."
"Right," says Chloe, "If Daniel found out I slept with you, that would be the end of us... Of me." Nathan stands behind her and soaks it in.
Baker makes a call, "This is Robert Bishop. I'd like to transfer money from a PIN protected account. I have the number and the PIN right here."
Stefano says he doesn't want to go in to see EJ while Sami is there. He's angry the police can't find the perp, "The competence in the Brady police force is overwhelming. Whoever is doing this will dread the day he crossed paths with the DiMeras."
Lexie is stunned, "Even if you're being sarcastic, that's the first time the word competence and the SPD have ever been mentioned in the same sentence."
EJ says his curiosity is getting to him and wants to know how he showed Sami his gratitude. Sami brushes it off. She says she was terrified and if something had happened to EJ, she doesn't know how that she would explain that to her kids. Rafe watches as EJ caresses her cheek, "Don't worry. I'm not going anywhere."
"That's the best news I've had all week," says Sami. Dejected Rafe tucks his tail between his legs and walks off.
