Stephanie interrupts a close moment between Melanie and Philip; Stefano worries that Melanie will ruin the DiMeras. For the week of February 16th:
---Philip interrupted Melanie and EJ's little tete-a-tete. When EJ left, Philip grabbed Melanie and told her he knew what she was up to. Melanie promised to keep the fuel project with Titan, if Philip did something for her in return. What might that be? She wanted him to dump Stephanie! Philip refused, and promised to destroy Melanie if she double-crossed him.
---These two finally admitted something was up between them, besides friendship. Actually, Chelsea was the first to admit it, saying she wanted more than a friend. They kissed, and, naturally, Melanie witnessed this and congratulated them. Chelsea told Stephanie, who was surprised and, surprisingly, okay with it. Chelsea urged her friend not to give up on Philip.
---While EJ let Melanie know, in no uncertain terms, that he was the boss, across town, Victor was doing the same thing with Philip. Victor pitted him and Brady against each other, causing Philip to declare he could handle the fuel project alone. His next step was to show up at the DiMera Mansion to confront EJ. Tony tried to intercede, but EJ said he'd already won because Philip had insisted on making things personal with Melanie. Philip headed over to confront Melanie, next. With a hot kiss......
---Stephanie confided in her parents and realized that maybe, just maybe, things weren't really meant to be with her and Philip. He tried to make amends, but she told him she just couldn't do it. She decided to confront Melanie, but really didn't like what she saw there – the lip-lock between Melanie and Philip; Philip insisted he was in love with Melanie. Crushed Stephanie left, leaving Melanie to tell Philip she was onto him. She kicked him out, just in time for Stephanie to return, and slap her in the face.
---Chloe ran into Lucas, and realized she still loved him. She found herself sobbing on a park bench and a priest, Father Matt, approached. Chloe confided her troubles and Father Matt suggested she ask God for a sign. Chloe got a call – from Daniel – and decided that was her sign. She went to meet him at his apartment, where he told her that Kate was in remission. That meant they could leave town together. Daniel got a page and headed for the hospital, while drunk Lucas headed for his apartment. Instead of Daniel, Lucas got hit in the face -- with a huge explosion.......
---Maggie had a busy week, as well. She started it by laying into Daniel, telling him he needed to clue Kate in about his affair. Then, she heard from Melanie that Lucas had fallen off (way off) the wagon. She tracked Lucas down at the Cheatin' Heart, where she found him feeling extremely sorry for himself, and drunk. Maggie told him about Chloe's affair. He tricked Maggie to get her out of the bar, then went to track down Daniel.
---There continued to be trouble in paradise for Nicole. She got another call from Mia, who she told to never call again. Then Brady showed up and tried to find out exactly what had happened between Nicole and Dr. Baker. Nicole managed to cover, then called Dr. Baker, who insisted Brady was in love with her. Flustered Nicole asked EJ to make love. When EJ pointed out that she'd just given birth, she managed to cover, again. Then she learned that Sami was coming home. EJ reassured her, but Nicole still had a nightmare that he took Sydney and returned her to her real mother. Just how long before that comes true? Especially now that Philip has overheard Nicole and Brady conspiring.
---Hope's hearing took place. Both Bo and Kayla tried to defend her, but Hope was forced to give Bo her gun and badge. She was reeling from her suspension and the possibility of losing her job when Bo begged her for another chance, but there seems to be no sign of reconciliation yet.**UPDATED 2/10**Daytime Dial spoilers
