Nicole is in her hotel room, "Maybe if I dim the lights this won't look like such a hovel." She turns the lights off, "Oh, a dimly-lit hovel. It looks like the Addams Family guestroom." She flashes back to her conversation with EJ and vows to make him pay through the nose. Her phone rings. Nicole picks up.
A mystery voice says, "I need to meet you. You want a story?"
"Who is this?"
"Meet me at the pier, now," says the voice.
"I'll be there."
Rafe, the mystery-voice-revealed, hangs up, "I won’t."
Sami and EJ are in the rumpus room. She tells him she's a little surprised she can now trust him. He says he knew when he was doing it, it was wrong. Sami thinks they both have a lot to answer for. EJ insists it's only him, "I'm the one who did things and needs to ask your forgiveness."
Roman suggests they not call people and worry them about Bo. Carly thinks things are horrible. Abe tells Roman it's good Dr. Dan showed up when he did. "Bo is a lucky man." says Roman, "He's been in Salem Hospital for nearly an hour and is still alive."
Hope gets closer to Bo. She kisses him and says she loved him so much, "That, my dear, was the kiss of death."
Bo wakes up, "What's unusual about that. There is never any life in your kisses."
Maggie sits in her kitchen. Victor calls and says he just finished the foundation plans and wants to show her, "Come on over Victor. A good spreadsheet is just what I'm looking for."
Nicole leaves. Rafe stalks up and uses the old credit card trick to get into her room.
Sami chuckles, "Who are you and what have you done with EJ DiMera?" EJ says she has every reason to have her guard up around him. Sami disagrees. She thinks he's changed and is now his own man.
That means a lot to EJ, "It's not just who I am it's what I've done."
Daniel tries to reassure Carly that Bo is OK as Bo turns blue and gags.
Abe tells Roman he thinks Hope has the right to know what happened to Bo. Roman says he doesn't want her down there with Carly around. Abe wonders who could hate Bo this much, proving that as a pair, they can put two and two together, but can't come up with an answer.
Hopeless prepares a syringe, "An air bubble in your IV won't be as slow and painful as I planned, but you will die and that's all that matters."
Bo asks, "Do you think I'll go to hell?"
"I would think you would want to," says Hope, "After all, you want to be with Carly forever, don't you?"
Vivian finds Victor in the den. She suggests a nightcap. He says he can't because he has a meeting. Vivian wonders what it's about and hopes he's not headed over to you-know-who's place. Victor warns her, "Don't go there."
Vivian goes there, "You're going to Maggie's."
"Yes," says Victor, "But it's none of your business."
Nicole gets to the pier and finds no one.
Rafe rifles through her things. He finds a picture of Sydney.
EJ flashes back to telling Sami about Sydney's death. Sami wonders what's wrong. He says he was thinking. That's wrong all right. He says he's been keeping something from her. Sami says she didn't mean to bum him out when she said she trusted him. EJ says she doesn't bum him out. He's a bum all on his own. He reminisces about when he moved in across from her. He says he had a plan to hurt her family, but fell in love with her.
"That always happens with me," says Sami, "Then they get to know me and dump me like yesterday's trash."
Hope starts to shoot air in Bo's iv. Bo wakes, "What are you doing?"
Vivian tries to change Victor's mind about going to Maggie's, "Oh, Mr. Grumpy-Grump, you need to sit down and I'll bring you a brandy."
Victor growls, "You don't have to treat me like I'm a kid."
"I'm not," insists Vivian, "But I'm your wife. I'm your soul mate."
"Yeah," he grumbles, "My penance for past sins."
Vivian thinks Maggie is manipulating him. She says she's taken care of things and hands him a business plan for the Mickey Horton scholarship fund, "I've taken care of everything."
Sami thinks they have worked through all their problems and are getting along. She mentions the kids, and Sydney cries on cue. EJ goes to take care of her.
Nicole calls the number that called her and finds it was a pay phone, "SOB, I was set up!"
Rafe searches and flashes back to hearing the conversation between Nicole and EJ. He finds something in a drawer.
Victor looks through Vivian's proposal, "I notice you relinquished the fiduciary responsibility to an outside source." Vivian gives him a blank stare. "THIS IS CRAP," he booms, "You hired someone to do this!"
Vivian says she wants time with Victor, "I can make you happier than that red-headed cow." Vivian realizes she has crossed the line, "I didn't mean to say that."
"But you did," says Victor, "And I will never forget it. And in fact, I'm headed for the cattle barn right now." He leaves. Vivian flings the proposal.
Nicole is on the phone with God-knows-who. She rants and suddenly stops, "OMG it's a trap!"
Rafe has found a book, "What do you have for me Nicole?"
EJ returns, having solved the kid problem. Sami gripes because Sydney likes EJ best. She goes to get the twins. EJ picks up a picture of Sydney and vows to make things right, "We'll be together. Just one big happy family. And then that microsecond will pass, and we'll go back to being at each others' throats again."
Hope answers Bo, "I'm doing what I should have done a long time ago." Suddenly, she hears voices. Carly and Daniel come in as Hope skedaddles. Delirious Bo mumbles, "Hope? Hope?"
Outside, Roman tells Abe he thinks this has nothing to do with the muggings. He thinks this is personal.
Hope rushes back to the Kiriakis mansion. She stops at the door and ponders, "He knows I tried to kill him."
Bo tires to tell what happened, "Hope... she was... AAACCCKKKKKK!"
"CODE BLUE," screams Carly.
"He looks more like deep purple to me," says Dan.
Carly yells, "OMG get the crash cart STAT!"
Daniel screams, "Don't call me 'Stat!'"
Carly turns back to Mr. Purple, "Bo?"
Nicole calls EJ. She tells him she's on a wild goose chase and reminds him what she has on him. EJ says he knows nothing. Nicole tosses more threats and hangs up. Sami walks back into the rumpus room, "What did Nicole do now?"
Rafe finds an encoded page in the book:
"OMG, this is complex," says Rafe, "What the hell does it mean?" Use your advanced algebra skills, Einstein.
Sami says Nicole should know enough to stay away from EJ. EJ asks her to trust him to handle the situation. He says Nicole is jealous of them.
Hope walks into the den and asks if something is wrong. The babysitter says Ciara wouldn't go to bed until Hope got home. God forbid the babysitter should be in charge. The babysitter leaves and Hope strokes sleeping Ciara. She tells her she loves her more than anything and did all of this for her.
"CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP! "CLEAR!" ZAP!
Carly panics, "He was stable. what's going on?"
"I don't know," says Daniel, "Get a doctor in here, STAT!"
Carly screams, "Don't call me 'Stat!'"
Vivian is at the pub with Gus. She gripes about Victor, "Put another nickle in the machine and make the music soft and sad." Gus suggests she stop drinking and reaches over to take your glass. Vivian slurs, "Get your meathooks off my martini!"
Gus asks, "Are you going to take it laying down."
Vivian snorts, "Ill take it sitting up in a canoe if that's what he wants." She decides that may have been inappropriate and she probably shouldn't have said it. She's wrong. We'll take anything that livens this show up a little.
Gus suggests, "It's time Mr. Kiriakis and his candy-stripier found out whom they're dealing with."
Victor says his life has become a 30's gangster movie with Vivian as the moll. Maggie doesn't want to talk about the scholarship. She wants to talk about their relationship.
EJ says he and Sami have everything Nicole wanted and Nicole can't stand it. "There is one difference," says Sami, "I'm only your house-guest."
Sami thinks she's behind in the parent popularity poll and goes to spend time with Sydney.
EJ mumbles, "Damn you Nicole. Nobody will find out what I did."
Rafe photographs the page of code in the book.
Maggie says she asked Victor to come over because she can't sleep, "I'm kinda blue."
"Like Bo," asks Victor.
"No," says Maggie, "He's purple. Victor reminds her they are friends. "Maybe we shouldn't be." says Maggie.
Vivian rants about Victor and wonders what she can do. Gus doesn't think a 4th martini would be the thing. Vivian makes her decision, "Get me a car. I'm going to Chicago."
Gus thinks that's a good idea, "Everyone should drive after three martinis. Not only that, you'll be off somewhere and Mr. Kiriakis won't know where. It will teach him a lesson."
"That's not it," says Vivian, "His favorite store is there and I'll get him some Greek things. Maggie Horton is getting on my nerves."
Gus leans in, "Don't get sad. Get even."
Nicole gets back to the hovel. she sees her room has been tossed and finds the window open, "Someone’s been here." Great detective work, Sherlock.
Sami comes back. She asks about the new dress in Sydney's closet. EJ says that was supposed to be a surprise. He says he's arranged for a family portrait. He got new outfits for everyone, and a suit for Will. Sami is surprised Will agreed to be in it. She asks if EJ picked something out for himself, because he should be in the picture, too. EJ agrees and it's smiles all around.
Daniel says Bo is responding to treatment. Carly calls Hope.
Hopeless says she has to protect Ciara, "Zack died because your daddy didn't care. All he cared about was his daughter. I've tried and now I don't know what's going to happen." She gets the call and doesn't answer, "So Bo told Carly and now they're coming for me. I'm sorry. I am so sorry, Ciara."
Nicole thinks EJ sent her to the pier to do this. She finds her code book in the drawer and thinks maybe it was a false alarm, "The wind must have blown in through the open window and torn my room apart."
Rafe is back in his office, "I'll figure this code out and then you are going down, DiMera, in flames." He reaches into his drawer and pulls out his Captain Marvel Decoder Ring.
Sami can't believe EJ did this. She decides to go up and get some beauty sleep for her big day tomorrow. EJ gives her a smoochie-kiss, "Goodnight."
Sami pants like an overacting porn queen, "Right... goodnight."
Maggie reminds Victor he's married. She says she wants Victor to talk to her lawyer about the foundation from now on.
Roman asks, "Shall we state the obvious?"
"Abe asks, "You mean, Stefano? I don't think so. This isn't the DiMera M-O."
"If not them, who," asks Roman.
Hope is in bed. She tosses and turns, "This is goodbye."
Bo sucks on his tube. Carly tells him it's OK. Bo yanks.
Carly commands, "Stop it! Stubborn man! You really want to tell me who did this to you don't you?"
Bo says the most intelligent thing he's ever said on this show, "Gablorbamurf."
