Loose Lips Sink Ships
Sami and Rafe cuddle as Rafe assures her things will be OK. Sami ain' buyin' what Rafe is sellin'. Rafe says she can pay EJ back by getting sole custody of the kids, who, by the way, are halfway through their climb up El Capitan at the moment.
Kate and Stefano are in the rumpus room. He tells her he'll take care of the situation. Kate thinks he's doing a rotten job of it so far.
Sami says if they go to court EJ will pull out a list of the horrible things she's done. Rafe tells her to negotiate it with EJ personally, not in court, and use the CD as leverage. "You mean the CD of his conversation with Stefano," says Sami.
"No," says Rafe, "Use any John Mayer CD. Threaten to play it and he'll cave in immediately."
EJ calms down, "Sorry, it's been a rough day." Nicole falls for it and approaches him. Suddenly the crazed, booze polluted maniac jumps up and grabs her by the throat. Nicole turns blue and her tongue rolls out across the dock as she struggles to breathe. Then...
SUPERDOC TO THE RESCUE!
EJ backs off, points to Nicole... points to himself... points to Nicole... points to himself... "It's not over."
"I have no qualms about putting drunks out of their misery," says Daniel, "In fact I enjoy it." EJ leaves. Daniel and Nicole sit on the bench. Daniel asks, "What happened to George?"
Nicole huffs and puffs, "EJ... EJ... he was gonna kill me. Bwaaaaaaaaa...."
Rafe says the one thing EJ cares about is his kids. Sami hopes the plan works, "One way or another I have to keep those kids away from him unless there are no other babysitters available."
Daniel tries to calm Nicole down. He asks why EJ was going to kill her. Nicole blubbers, "I just kept talking..."
"I'd kill you for that, too," says Daniel.
Nicole drops the big bomb, "EJ paid Anna DiMera to kidnap Sydney to make Sami pay."
Daniel gives his most intelligent response, "Huhwha?"
"EJ is a horrible person," says Nicole.
"Why is he so mad at you?"
"I found out about it and blackmailed him." She tells him the story.
"Let me get this straight," says Daniel, "You blackmailed EJ and then handed the evidence to the FBI? Well, you're right. He is going to kill you."
Kate tells Stefano she's scared Will is going to find out he was involved with EJ, and then think Kate had Stefano's back, "When the Time comes you need to make it clear to Will I knew nothing about this. If that doesn't happen I will walk out that door and bring down this house."
EJ walks in and overhears Kate's threat, "Get out!"
Not only is EJ drunk, he's proud of it, "Yep." He turns to Stefano, "Get her out. We have family business."
Will is at the pub with Caroline. He says it doesn't make sense Stefano would have anything to do with the Sydnapping.
"Hurting your mother is his favorite sport," says Caroline, "You're trying to tell me Stefano has changed? How dumb can you be?"
"I'm Lucas Horton's son," says Will, "That should answer that question."
Kate seethes, "I will not let that drunk come between me and Will." She leaves.
EJ hoists a glass, "Cheers." Stefano tells EJ his performance is pathetic. EJ tells him Nicole recorded the conversation and Rafe got hold of it.
The blood drains from Stefano's face, "Can't we get it suppressed?"
"No," says EJ, "Some kid turned it into a video and it's all over YouTube. I'm not taking any chances. I'm taking my kids and getting out of here."
Stefano gasps, "Good God, haven't you done enough to the children already? All you think about is yourself." Kate eavesdrops.
Sami and Rafe are plastered together. Sami declines a sleeping pill. Dr. Hernandez prescribes medicinal brandy. He goes to get it. Sami gives herself a pep talk as her phone rings, "How dare you call me here!"
It's Kate, "Shut up and listen. EJ just told Stefano he's taking the children and going to disappear." She tells Sami EJ is too drunk to do anything tonight, but she'd better do something. Rafe comes back with the booze. He asks who Sami was talking to. "Grandma," she lies.
EJ paces in the bedroom. He swills liquor and contemplates Sami's unused nightie, then a family drawing.
Sami flashes back to the conversation with Kate we just heard just in case you weren't paying attention.
Daniel comes up with an answer, "Did it ever occur to you that you that blackmailing a monster is a bad idea?"
Nicole blubbers, "I really did like stickin' it to EJ and I know that was stupid. I really did love him. I know he's bad and we were happy before I lost the baby. Waaaa. I don't know what's happening to my life." Daniel cradles her in his arms as she falls apart.
Caroline apologizes for being tough on Will. "Aren't people supposed to be innocent until proven guilty," asks Will.
Roman sits at the table behind will and overhears. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA! OMG! That's a good one. Mind if I write that down and use it when I emcee the Policeman's Ball?"
Caroline says, "EJ couldn't have pulled this off without Stefano."
"You have no proof," insists Will, "You say that because you hate him."
Kate comes back in and says she just saw EJ storm by. Stefano tells her things are bad, "It seems Hernandez has produced a CD with all this on it."
"Loose lips sink ships," says Kate.
"Not as fast as Shawn Brady," says Stefano, "And I'm also on the CD which proves I knew what he was doing."
Kate predicts, "And now Hernandez will give that CD to Sami and Sami will tell Will."
"I told you I will fix it," insists Stefano, "You will not lose your grandson."
Kate asks, "At least EJ can't do any damage now? Right?"
"Right," says Stefano. He suggests getting out and spending the night on the yacht. Kate wonders if it's a good idea to leave EJ alone. Stefano says EJ will be fine.
"Yes," agrees Kate, "He has his father to take care of him, doesn't he?"
George shows back up. Daniel leaves.
Rafe sleeps. Sami kisses him, "I have to do something." She sneaks out of bed."
EJ rages and yells, "GET OUT! OUT!"" He goes into the rumpus room, staggers around, pours another belt and stares out the French doors. He flashes back to the card game he had there with Sami and the kids swills more booze, looks at family pictures, stares at the desk drawer and opens it.
Stefano and Kate are outside the pub discussing who should have told whom what when. Kate tells him she feels the same about her family as he does about his, "The ball is in your court."
"Fine," snorts Stefano, "But get one thing straight. I'm not doing this because you threatened me."
"Because I love you." He leaves.
"The DiMeras never tell eh truth." She follows.
Inside, Caroline tells Stefano he missed his chance to find Will, who has come and gone.
EJ staggers back into the bedroom sniffin', snortin' and drinkin'.
In an exciting turn of events, Rafe rolls over, "Sami..."
Sami comes into the DiMera mansion calling for EJ. She remembers what Kate said, "There is no way that's happening. EJ where are you?"
EJ contemplates the drawing. He remembers meeting Johnny and cries like a little girl. Then he flashes back to Sami's meltdown at the wedding, and a Stefano lecture. He picks up the pistol he has been carrying around.
Caroline says Will now has a clearer picture of what Stefano is like. Stefano insists he had nothing to do with the kidnapping. Kate says she had no idea herself. Caroline suggests, "Tell Will that and see if he believes you. It's over. My Sami has been hurt for the last time and she has Rafe to make sure of that." Translation: Sami will be hurt for the final time when she's left standing at the altar at age 90, but by that time will at least have one heckuva collection of wedding dresses.
Daniel, Nicole and George arrive back at Daniel's place. George apologizes for letting EJ get to Nicole, "It won't happen again, unless the FBI decides to let me keep my job after being sucked in like that."
"From your mouth to God's ears," says Nicole.
"No way," says God, "I've had this whole episode on mute."
Daniel announces Chloe is out somewhere, "She left a note: 'So many men, so little time.' What would you like?"
"I don't know," says Nicole, "Vodka, gin, rubbing alcohol..." Daniel prepares a drink while Nicole wonders if EJ will kill her.
EJ holds the pistol and stares. We watch in the mirror as he bawls and puts it to his head. Sami searches and heads upstairs.
Daniel tells Nicole she's safe there. Nicole isn't convinced. "Being a good guy is exhausting," says Daniel, "I'm headed for bed." He leaves.
"Well," sighs Nicole, "I guess it's over." She has a flashback to her argument with EJ and decides, "No, this isn't over while EJ is still alive." She goes and pours another dink and then takes a slug from the bottle."
In an exciting twist, Rafe sleeps.
EJ is unconscious on the bed.
Sami rushes into the bedroom, "EJ where are... Wake up! Get up! You are not taking my children from me! Get up!" Sami flashes back to Kate... EJ telling her Sydney is dead... That he loves her... Flashbacks swirl by and all meld together. Sami grabs the gun from EJ's hand and points it toward him...
