The Most Hateful Bastard On The Face Of The Earth
Brady reacts to the news that Nicole is marrying EJ, "Holy crap."
Vivian points out that Brady and Nicole are, "still having their way with each other, as it were."
Victor informs Maggie Phillip is the Parker's father. Maggie can't wait to get this lollapalusa to her bridge club. Victor is upset that Caroline played God with his family, "Everyone knows that’s my job."
Daniel tells Chloe about Caroline's stroke and says he wants to hold Parker. Don't drag me into this," says Parker, "I just got here." Chloe fakes to the halfback and hands him off to Daniel.
Melanie says, "I want to wake up and have someone say this is a nightmare." Phillip says he loves her and puts a hand on her shoulder.
Carly thinks Kayla is accusing her of causing Caroline's stroke. She reminds Kayla Caroline isn't innocent in this.
Melanie is on a rage roll, "Go to hell. We are done." Phillip insists they will never be done.
Daniel holds a picture and tosses it in the trash, "It's just you and me, Chloe. So talk. For once, tell me the truth."
Chloe insists she had no idea what Caroline did until today. Daniel says things are making a sort of sick sense, like the patient at St. Mary’s was her. Chloe admits it. She moves toward him. Daniel freaks, "DO NOT TOUCH ME!"
There isn't' much touching with Melanie and Phillip, either. Phillip tells her it was just once. Melanie screams, "I can't believe you just said that you disgusting womanizing creep!"
"There was a reason," says Phillip, "I thought you had betrayed me."
Oh, so it's my fault," says Melanie, "So you decided you had to have unprotected sex because of your undying love for me. Do you think I'm gonna buy this? No more lies! Just shut up and leave me alone."
Phillip consults the Guy Manual. Even that can't get him out of this one, though.
Brady claims Nicole marrying EJ doesn't upset him. Translation: it upsets him. He reminds her Sydney isn't her daughter and that won't change if she moves in with EJ. Nicole says she'll be satisfied if she can just be with Sydney. She says she loves Brady and things don't have to change between them. "Things will change," says Brady,"You're marrying the most hateful bastard on the face of the earth."
"We can keep doing what we're doing," says Nicole, "Two for the price of one... that's suits me."
EJ says Vivian it too kind to bring him this information. She sends her best to Johnny and leaves. EJ looks at the pictures and slams them on the table.
Maggie admits Caroline made a bad decision but says this is all Clhoe's fault. Victor says Caroline, Clhoe and Carly, The Three "C's" of deception are responsible.
Nicole says she knows EJ will think those pictures are doctored, "So that gives us time to figure things out." She moves in and shows him how to start figuring.
Kayla defends Caroline. Carly knows Kayla won't change her mind about this. Kayla tells her she's right.
Melanie backs Phillip off. Can you imagine? She's not buying the fact he slept with Chloe because he loves her. Phillip gets a text from Bo, "Tell her you thought it was her. It works for me every time." Phillip snivels and begs. Melanie says she feels sorry for Parker, "His daddy may have a lot of money, but he has no soul."
"Usually money makes up for having no soul," says Phillip.
Chloe says, "After my hysterical pregnancy I wasn't in my right mind." Or before, either. Daniel goes into a rage worthy of Sami Brady. Chloe continues to try to defend herself, "Tell me you understand I believed all that."
"You were supposed to believe in me," screams Daniel, "And I know you were tricked."
Chloe asks if he can ever forgive her. Nope. Negatory. Nosiree.
Daniel gets quiet and contemplative. He remembers all the times the wedding was on and off and wonders if she was waiting for a paternity test. She says she wasn't but it was because she was trying to talk Carly out of blabbing, but eventually Carly agreed to keep the secret if the baby was Daniel's. Daniel wonders if this is why Father Matt was reluctant to marry them. He also wonders if she confided in Nicole, "So all these people knew but they kept it from me?" Yeppers.
Phillip agrees Parker deserves better than him for a father. Melanie says, "Then it's a good thing I'm not pregnant." Translation: I wonder how far along she is. Phillip tells her if he loses her he'll lose everything. In reality that means he must not have a whole lot, "Do you still love me."
Melanie sniffs, "BAWL... yes."
Nicole is back with EJ and says she thinks his proposal is a great idea. She agrees to marry him. EJ isn't as enthusiastic and he shows her the naughty pictures.
Carly and Kayla toss resentments at each other. Carly asks how Kayla knows so much about this. Kayla tells her to stay out of her life.
Melanie says she will always love Phillip, "But even if I could forgive you for what you did to me, how could I forgive you for what you did to my father."
Chloe says she knows Daniel still loves Parker Kiriakis. She totally falls apart and says they can still have a life together. She grabs him and plants a big one.
Kate finds Brady in the den, "I have had an epiphany. I think we're acting like fools and cowards." Fools and cowards and bears, Oh my! "Vivian is bebopping around Salem plotting against us while we sit here waiting for the other shoe to drop."
Brady says he gets it, "I just got a hell of an idea."
Nicole claims the pix are Photoshopped. She says Vivian already showed him those and that's why she wasn't shocked when he pulled them out. EJ says she has lied to him for the last time. Translation: The last time this hour.
Phillip says he realizes this is about more than him and Melanie, "It's about your father, too. But don't forget Daniel slept with Chloe when she was engaged to Lucas."
"Don't go there," says Melanie, "My dad is a good, honest low-thario. He and Maggie are all I have left in the world." She stomps out.
Daniel pushes Chloe away and tells her not to do that again. Too many times, that is. He leaves as Chloe begs him not go go and tosses her last shred of self respect out the window.
Maxine tells Kayla they're starting rehab on Caroline. Kayla follows her to Caroline's room. Victor comes up and asks Carly how she can live with herself.
Brady reminds Kate about Vivian poisoning her coffee all those years ago and leaving her for her fish slicing adventure.
EJ rages about Nicole bringing Brady home. Nicole says she loves Sydney but needs to be loved, too. EJ says she will suffer the consequences for what she did.
Carly reminds Victor his entire life has been a travesty. "Good thing Bo left you to rescue his wife," says Victor, "At least he's finally gotten a little class."
Melanie wheels her suitcase out. As she opens the door, Daniel stands there. He tells her he knew Phillip was unfaithful, but didn't realize it was with Chloe. Likewise, Melanie knew Chloe was unfaithful, but didn't know it was with Phillip. She doesn't want Daniel pointing out no stinkin' silver linings in this situation, either, "because there isn't one."
Phillip shows up at Chloe's place. Chloe says she doesn't want him there when Daniel comes back. "He's not coming back," says Phillip, "And Melanie isn't coming back to me."
Nicole asks EJ to hear her out. EJ isn't in a listening mood.
Nicole asks to see Sydney one last time, but EJ says she is napping, so Nicole starts to sulk out. EJ stops her and says he's giving her one last chance to choose. Translation: It may be her last chance, but you can bet it's not her last last chance.
Chloe insists Daniel is coming back to her. Daniel says he's there to see his son. "Tyler isn't here," says Chloe.
Melanie says Phillip and Clhoe don't deserve to have Parker. Suddenly she realizes Daniel is legally Parker's father, "Take Parker away from them."
Brady and Kate reconnoiter at the pub. Brady tells her Victor has many private islands and one is so small and insignificant it's uninhabited. "Not for long," says Kate. I'll bet its name is Sikairik.
Nicole is skeptical, but George Bush the elder comes into the room and announces, "Read my lips... This is the kinder, gentler EJ DiMera."
EJ says she has to choose between marrying him or being with Brady. He moves in on her gives her his best seductive voice and grabs her butt... then yanks her cell phone out of her back pocket. He tosses the phone at her, "Either call Brady or get out."
Phillip tells Chloe, "Everything is different now."
Melanie flings a picture.
Sami says to EJ and Nicole, "She's a total lowlife bitch." Nicole flings her drink at her.
