HTS - Part 1: Sami runs into Will. She was just going to call him. I have a little gift for you back at my place. Will - Why, it's not Christmas or my birthday. Sami doesn't need an excuse to buy her son a present. Will - What do you want Mom? Sami - So you heard EJ resigned? Will - As Mayor? Sami - Well what else would he be resigning from. Will - When did this happen? Sami - Yesterday. He made the statement that he wants to spend more time with his family. Will - Really! Sami - Really. Will - I'm guessing he doesn't mean Stefano. Sami looks away. Will - Then I'm right. You're thinking about getting back together with him.
Brady Pub - Part 1: EJ is outside the pub talking on his cell waving his free hand around - The cost is not important. This evening has to be perfect. Think the height of romance and then top that. Thank you. He goes inside the pub and hears Jennifer talking on her cell to her Dad. The house did feel empty until Nicole moved in Dad. Now it doesn't feel ... EJ - What! Did you just say Nicole is moving in with you? Jen - Excuse me Dad, I am being rudely interrupted by someone right now. Can I call you back? Alright. You know EJ you need to not listen in on other people's phone calls. You might get a bad reputation. EJ - Is there any particular reason Nicole has decided to take up residence at your inn. Jen - I'm already late for something. EJ steps in front of her preventing her from leaving. EJ - Don't underestimate Nicole. If she's moving in with you to hide from some sort of storm you're going to need to up your disaster insurance.
Alice's house - Part 1: Nicole thanks Rafe for coming over. Rafe - No problem. How are you feeling? Nicole - Actually really, really good. I have news. It's a boy. Rafe - So you decided to find out huh. Are you happy? Nicole - Totally. I'd probably screw up a little girl. Rafe starts to say something then stops - No comment on that. Nicole - But seriously, the moment I found out I made a decision and I want to run it by you. You have been amazing pretending to be my baby's father and keeping EJ away from me. Rafe - It's a no-brainer as far as I'm concerned. Nicole - Good. Now as long as you feel that way I want to see what you think of the name. Okay. Daniel Raphael Hernandez. Rafe - I love the name. It's so ... I'm honoured. Nicole - Great. Yes. Thank you. Rafe - You're welcome. Nicole - Oh come on, are you just saying that, really? Rafe - No, I'm not just saying that. It's just that now that the baby is going to have my name it makes that responsibility that I'm going to be looking after the both of you that much more real. Nicole - Obviously the last name, we have to keep that for appearances but I really wanted your name in there too ... kind of as a thanks, you know. Rafe - The first name ... Nicole - Daniel. He's been just as supportive in this as you have. Rafe - I get it just don't you think EJ's going to get it too. Nicole - Get what? Rafe - The guy that did the paternity test proving EJ isn't the father is now going to have the baby named after him! Nicole, you don't think he's going to be suspicious of that? Nicole - Anything I do from now on til I die will make EJ suspicious. I want my baby's name to be meaningful and you and Daniel, for right now, are the two most meaninful men in my life until Daniel Raphael gets here of course. Rafe - Hey, it's your baby. You can name him whatever you want alright. Nicole - I hear a but coming. Rafe - No, just wondering if there's something else going on between you and Daniel besides this enormous favour he's done for you.
Common Grounds - Part 1: Dan is cursing his cell phone for some reason. Sonny greets him and asks what he can get him. Dan gives his order. Sonny - For Melanie, that's the only thing she ever orders. Dan - Yeah. I've been trying to get through to my daughter for 20 mins already - come on! The phone doesn't reply. He tries again ...
Chad's place - Part 1: Melanie reads a note that Chad left her. You're sexy when you sleep. Love, your future husband. Her phone rings. She answers - Is this my future husband? Chad? She recalls encountering Nick at the mansion. She hangs up the phone when no one answers. The phone rings again. Hi Melanie, it's Dad. She tells him she was in the shower. Dan tells her he's going to be over in a little bit. Mel - That's fine but I'm fine just like when you asked me last night and Maggie this morning. I know everybody thinks I'm freaked out about Nick being here but I'm fine, okay. Dan - Well that's all nice and neat but I'm coming over anyway. Dan hears a noise - Is that a knock on the door. Mel - Sounds like it. Dan - Honey, you need to ask first. Mel - I'm not 4. She hangs up, checks the peephole and opens the door. Hi Brady. Brady - I want to talk to you about ... Mel - Nick Fallon. Yeah, big surprise. Go ahead and ask your questions about how I'm doing, if I'm freaking out or still having nightmares or if it worries me that Nick is running around Salem loose. But you've got to be fast about because Maggie is going to call me soon to make sure my head hasn't exploded. In case that's not enough my Dad's going to come over to physically see for himself if my head has exploded. And I'm pretty sure that Chad has a DiMera
bodyguard standing outside the apartment watching me ... Brady - Can you stop. Mel - You're driving me crazy. I'm going to scream my head off if you've come to give me a safety lesson. Brady - If you do that ever again could you promise to give me a head's up so I can put cotton in my ears please. Mel smiles - Whatever. Brady - Maggie told me you were very upset when you saw Nick over at the mansion. Mel - Yeah, well I was surprised. I'd probably have the same reaction if you were behind me and I didn't know you were behind me and I turned around and saw. Maybe it wouldn't be the exact same reaction. I love you all but if you don't back off I'm going to pull all my hair out. Brady - I'm just concerned, I'm sorry. Mel - I'm sorry. I know you're going through so much losing Madison the way you did. I don't know what I'd do if I ever lost Chad.
Alice's house - Part 2: Nicole - Well, uh, my feelings for Daniel evolved over time which is good. He did an incredibly brave thing for me, for us and the more time I spent with him, especially after he saved the baby, I had a moment of clarity. And once I knew I was all in. Rafe - Interesting. Nicole - What is? Rafe - Nothing, just the two of you through this friendship have developed something romantic. Nicole - I'd like to think so. Rafe - Why do you say that? Nicole - I have a lot of clarity about Daniel but Daniel doesn't have a whole lot of clarity about me.
Common Grounds - Part 2: Adrienne is talking to Dan. You know your daughter's boyfriend is Sonny's business partner, right? Dan - Yeah. Adrienne - Initially Justin and I were very concerned about Sonny getting involved in a business relationship with a DiMera but Chad really does seem to be a good guy. Dan - Yeah, he is. I should have said this sooner. I'm so sorry about your brother. Jack's death is a terrible loss. My condolences to you and your family. Adrienne - Thank you Daniel. I really appreciate that. People have been tremendously wonderful. Very kind and supportive. I just wish Jennifer could lean on the people who love her as much as she lets them lean on her.
Brady Pub - Part 2: Jen - Oh EJ, I really hate hyperbolic threats. EJ - I'm not threatening you. Jen - No? Well I'm warning you. Stay away from my house and Nicole. EJ - I'm just protecting what's mine. Jen - What's yours! Nicole is pregnant with Rafe's baby. Nothing is yours. Cue flashback of EJ imploring Nicole not to deprive him of his child. Jen - Maybe it's time for you to move on EJ, don't you think?
HTS - Part 2: Sami - You are my son and you're smart. Will - No, I'm not smart. It's just that you're transparent. Sami - Yes you are smart and maybe I am a little with you but I thought you liked EJ. Will - I do but how I feel about him doesn't matter. I think we discussed this before ... about your disastrous history together. Why would you want to repeat that? Sami - Okay, you make a good point. What? Will - I make a good point! Who are you and what have you done with my mother?
Sami's apt - Part 1: Sami hands Will a large gift wrapped box. Will - Wow, you do want to get on my good side. Sami - Be nice please. Will - I'll try. Sami - When EJ resigned he talked about how important it was to be with his family and I hope you know that's always been my first priority. Will - That is good. I have to say though that it seems that a lot of your reasoning for your decision making has kind of revolved around what EJ is doing. Sami - Look, if EJ and I going to ... you know ... to potentially having a relationship, we're both aware that it affects a lot of people besides us. Will - Okay, maybe he's having a better affect on you then I thought. Sami - I do appreciate your advice. One thing I don't want is to repeat the bad history that's happened between us. Will - Wow, you're freaking me out a little bit with all this reasonableness. Sami - I want you to be honest with me about your feelings. Will - I've been doing that. Sami - I know but about EJ. Do you think I'm making another mistake by thinking about getting back together with him?
Brady Pub - Part 3: EJ is outside on his cell again. Justin, EJ DiMera, since they say an attorney who has himself for a client is a fool, I was wondering if I could ask you for some legal advice regarding a personal and delicate matter. It concerns my ex-wife Nicole Walker. I would be very grateful if you would give me a call.
Alice's house - Part 3: Nicole - Actually in the beginning Daniel was the one pursuing a relationship with me but then Melanie got kidnapped and Nick Fallon is out on parole and he's focused on his daughter. He's a good father and I get why he has to make her a priority now. I'll do the same thing when my son is born. Rafe - Sounds all very neat and tidy. Nicole - Oh okay fine, there's more to the story. You cops, you're so annoying. Rafe - So? Nicole - Everything I've told you is true. There's just another layer now that Jack has passed away unexpectantly. Jennifer is back on Daniel's radar. Rafe - So you think Daniel still has feelings for Jennifer. Nicole - Let's not get carried away. Daniel has a big heart and he would help anyone that he cared about no matter the cost to him. That heart needs to go to the right person. Rafe - And that would be you. Nicole - Just saying.
Chad's place - Part 2: Dan asks who was at the door earlier. Mel - Brady. He was just doing the same thing you're about to do. Dan - Buying you coffee loaded with soy products? Mel - No, driving me crazy. They both say I love you at the same time. Mel - You can stay here and you can talk about whatever you want as long as it's about what normal people talk about which means no kidnapping, no parole boards, no nightmares. Dan - I'm sorry, you're having nightmares? Are you having nightmares now? Mel - You didn't listen to a single word I said. We can talk about the Cubs, the election ... Dan - Why don't we talk about this engagement ring on your finger. Mel - It's pretty. Chad proposed last night. Dan - I don't even know what to say. Does your mom know? Maggie? Mel - You're the first. Dan - Can I ask you a simple question. What in the hell are you thinking! Mel - What? Dan - I'm serious. This is out of nowhere. Mel - I know you like Chad. Dan - I do like Chad but I'm not expecting you to be engaged to the guy. Mel - Well we've been more than friends for a long time. Dan - Friends, exactly! But this. You know what this is? This is impulsive and it reminds me of Philip. Mel - Philip? Dan - Yeah. Mel - Really? Are you trying to make me freak out. Dan - No. In fact I'm not someone who can stand here in judgement. Mel - No you're not someone who can stand there and judge. And really I don't understand why you're not more happy for me. Dan - You don't understand? I'm sorry, but it's the timing of the whole thing. Now, right now? Mel - As opposed to what? I shouldn't get married to Chad. Dan - Why don't you tell me why you want to get married to Chad because right now with all this drama with Nick ... tell me right now, why you want to get married.
HTS - Part 3: Brady is staring at a leaflet entitled 'Living With Loss'. Jen comes through the arch and sees him there. Are you here for that? Brady - This? Yeah, you too? Jen - I'm so late. Brady - I'm late for it too. Jen - On purpose? Brady - Maybe. I don't know. These bereavement groups probably help a lot of people but honestly I don't feel like I want to focus on my loss. Jen - You know what, I get that, I do. She sits down on the bench with him. Brady - I'm sitting here with this giant pretzel. I used to get one for Madison each time the guy with the cart was here. She used to eat the whole thing and I can't finish this. Is this the biggest pretzel you've ever seen? Jen laughs - Gi ... normous! Brady - Would you help me out with this thing? They share the pretzel. Jen - I don't really like the crust. Brady - It has a crust. Jen - Yeah. I would just dig out the middle amd Jack would eat all the crust. I'd leave those for him. Brady - That's a great system for eating a pretzel. Jen - It's a really good system. And it's these little memories that really get me the most. Brady - The little things that only you and he knew; they're the best. Jen - Yeah. Brady - I spoke to Melanie this morning. That actually helped me out a little bit; focusing on somebody else's problem. It's amazing. Jen - I know it's really rough for Melanie with Nick back here but I'm telling you he's changed. I really believe that. Brady - I hope that you are right. Jen - Well she's lucky, she has you. Brady - Well thank you. She has me, she has Chad, she has her father too. Jen - Yeah Daniel's a great dad. The way he is with Melanie reminds me of how Jack was with Abigail. Not that they wouldn't get into it like cats and dogs sometimes. They laugh. Brady - They're supposed to.
Common Grounds - Part 3: EJ is talking on his cell again. Yes Florence I'm well aware it's a custom order and I've given you no time but my dear, you've never let me down before and you know I pay very, very well. She's extremely special but she's also prone to flip-flopping which is why this gift has to be extra special.
Sami's apt - Part 2: Will - You always do what you wanna do so why do you suddenly care what I think? Sami - I always care about what you think but now I can ask you because you're old enough. You're definitely all grown up. You're better than most people in this town about being objective about EJ so what do you think? Will - You know that underneath it all I think that he is a good person. Sami - Okay, that says a lot. Does that mean that you think that it will really work for us this time? Will - I didn't at first but I've given it a lot of thought and if you really want to be together then you should try I think. Sami hugs him - Thank you. Will - Thank you for actually talking to me about something before you acually do it. Sami - You're welcome. So are you going to open your present or wait until next Christmas? Will opens it. It's a jacket. Is this the jacket that was in the window we walked by one time? Sami - You definitely stopped, stared at it and commented on how cool it was and I know you never normally do that. Will - Wow, you were paying attention. Sami - I do that sometimes. Will - Thank you. I'm sorry, can I say one thing to you. Sami - Sure. Will - This conversation aside about EJ, you've got to admit that you've been all over the map with men lately. Sami - Okay, you're right. Cue flashback of a moment with Rafe. No question, you're definitely right. Will - Okay. So just, I don't know, can you be sure this time please.
Alice's house - Part 4: Rafe - You want my 2 cents about your feelings for Daniel. Nicole - Depends. Rafe - Well I'm going to give them anyway. You need to tell him. The three of us are already keeping this huge secret about EJ being the father of the baby and now not telling Daniel. Way too complicated. You've got to tell him because the stakes, they're way to high. Nicole - Pot to kettle black, hello! Rafe - What! Nicole - First of all I'm not keeping my feelings for Daniel a secret. Maybe he doesn't know how strong they are but he does know about my feelings. And second you're telling me I should tell someone about my feelings. You're like the worse offender of that ever! Rafe - What are you talking about? Nicole - Seriously. It starts with an S. Sami. Rafe - Sami! Nicole - Yeah. Rafe - Are you kidding me right now? Sami! Nicole - No I'm not because I'd have to have a sleep mask on not to see the way you two looked at each other when you brought her into the hospital after her latest inappropriate debacle. Rafe - I was just making sure she was okay. You're kidding me right now, right? Nicole - No I'm not. I can't stand her! Rafe - Neither can I. Nicole sarcastically replies - Oh, I believe you. Just because you can't stand her doesn't mean you don't want to be with her. And as much as it makes me gag to see you two together I just care about you and I want you to be happy. Do you think you could be happy without Sami? Or is she it?
Chad's place - Part 3: Mel - You just can't help yourself, can you? I tell you Chad and I are engaged and you bring up Nick which I'm pretty sure I remember asking you not to do. Dan - I'm pretty sure that was before I saw the ring on your finger. Mel - But you're so happy for me, right? Dan - How am I going to be happy for you when your boyfriend proposes marriage when you're extremely vulnerable. I don't even think you're thinking straight. Mel - Are you listening to yourself. Dan - Yes. This is your father taking care of you because you are not dealing with how terrified you are about Nick ... Mel - Do I need to ask you to leave? Dan - I am not leaving. I'm going to stay right here and we're going to deal with it, all of it, right now! Mel - We're going to do this? What would you like to know? Dan - What I want to know is how Chad got from being your boyfriend to your fiancé in one day. Mel - Well that's how it works, right? When you're dating to someone and they ask you to marry them you go from girlfriend to fiancée. Dan - You testified in front of Nick's parole board a couple of days ago and then yesterday you find out Nick is living at your grandma's so when did Chad have time to say marry me. Mel - Before that. Dan - So you weren't going to Maggie's to tell you her you got engaged. She shakes her head no. Dan - Because you hadn't said yes yet. So you went there to ask for advice after Chad proposed and you saw Nick there before you talked to her. Silence. Dan - So instead you come here and you tell Chad yes I'll marry you because Nick creeped me out because he's living with my grandmother. Baby, come on... Mel - But I love him. That's not enough? Dan - It would be if I thought that's the reason you're marrying him. Mel - You can't let me be happy? You can't let me have this one, you have to try and hurt me, right Dad. Of course. Dan - The last thing that I want to do is hurt you. Mel - Then tell me congratulations. Dan - If you're happy, I'm happy. Mel - I am. I know you think this is some knee-jerk reaction to Nick being here but it's not okay. Dan - Okay then congratulations. He hugs her.
Alice's house - Part 5: Rafe - Whatever you think you saw between me and Sami, that was history because I'm telling you there is no there, there. It's done. Nicole - Well EJ seems pretty plugged in about you and Sami. Rafe - Oh yeah he does, doesn't he? Because he's using the fact that I'm the baby's father to let her know that I'm unavailable. Nicole - But your not the baby's father and you are available if you want to be with her. Rafe - I do not want to be with her and I'm not ever going back to her again. In fact if I see her walking down the street I'm going to cross to the other side because I don't want to be near her, not now, not ever. Alright! Nicole - Oh that is so not true. Rafe - It is. Nicole - You know it as well as I do.
Sami's apt - Part 3: Will is in front of a mirror - Sami helps him with his jacket - It fits you like a glove. Will - Wow, this is great. Sami - You're going to get heads turning in this. Speaking of which, how's it going in that department? Will - What department is that exactly? Sami - Well, we just got through talking about my love life. Will - I think things are a little weird the other way around because you're my mom. That department's closed. Sami - I don't believe that. I think you just need to trust yourself and believe in who you are. If you do that other people are going to see that and respond to it and they're going to love you for who you are too. Will - Thanks. You should take the same advice.
Common Grounds - Part 3: EJ is still talking on his cell when Billie comes in. You'll just have to find someplace where daffodils are in season. Hold on it's my lawyer on the other line, I'll call you back. Try Holland. Justin, thank you for calling me. I wanted to talk to you about Nicole Walker. I need your expertise on the matter. Billie walks up - Excuse me. I don't mean to bother you but this is too good to pass by. Are you still interested in Nicole? EJ - Justin, would you be kind enough to excuxe me, something incredibly annoying just happened. Billie - Nicole, really. Now that we're psuedo related afterall with you still be a DiMera and my mom still married to your father, you could confide in me if you want. EJ - Billie, you and I are not related and I have no intention in confiding in you. As for what you overheard, my relationship with Nicole is over. I'm simply tying up a few legal loose ends, none of which is any of your business. Billie - Well who are the daffodils for then Elvis. EJ walks out.
Brady Pub - Part 4: Will walks up to the bar and tells the server he called in a take out order for Will. She goes to get it. Tad walks up to him. Is this a gay bar now too? Will - That's clever, now go away. Tad - I was a little rough on you the other day. Will - So that previous crack was your version of an apology? Tad - I just didn't want you thinking I was gay too. Don't want to send any mixed messages. Will - Thanks but you're not my type but thanks for the all clear. He grabs his order and tells the girl to keep the change. He starts to leave but stops when Tad says he and Sonny are a lot alike. Will - No we're not. Tad - Sure you are. Will - We both happen to be gay but that's kind of were the similarities stop. Tad - I know you're not into him like that. You're a real heartbreaker.
Sami's apt - Part 4: Sami is dressed up for her 'date' standing in front of the mirror. Will is right. Just be yourself and don't let EJ micromanage you. There's a knock on the door. He's early. She opens the door to Rafe.
HTS - Part 4: Brady finishs his share of the pretzel and throws the wrapper into a garbage can basketball style. Jen says that was a good aim. Brady - Thank you for helping me out with that; couldn't have finished it by myself. Jen - Eating is never a chore for me. Brady - How about the same time next week? Jen - Absolutely. You have to let me buy the pretzel. Brady - Deal. Nicole watches as they banter and laugh.
Common Grounds - Part 4: Adrienne watches Sonny at work. Sonny - What mom? Adrienne - I've just always hoped that you'd find someone who cared about you as much as you deserve. Sonny - That's what you're thinking about when you're staring at me? Adrienne - Someone kind, generous and loving; handsome wouldn't hurt. Sonny - Why don't you sign me up? Where can I find this guy? Adrienne - Stop. I just saw you with a very nice young man. He totally fits the bill. Sonny - You're talking about Brian? Adrienne - Yes, Brian. Sonny - Brian doesn't count because he's a friend of mine. I meant that, we're just friends. Adrienne - Oh. Sonny - Sorry to disappoint you. Adrienne - No. Is there someone that you're interested in? Sonny - Yeah. Adrienne - Who? Do I know him? Sonny - Yes you do. It's Will. Adrienne - Will? Will Horton?
Brady Pub - Part 5: Will follows Tad outside - Wait a second. Tad - Oh now you want to talk. Will - What did you mean about Sonny and me? Tad - It's just that you're not into him but the feeling isn't mutual. Will - Are you sure you know what you're talking about? Tad - Oh I know what I heard straight out of the gay horse's mouth. He walks away.
EJ / Sami / Rafe: Rafe stands outside of CG and calls Sami's place. At Sami's her phone rings. Rafe - Looks like you have plans. Sami - I was just getting ready to leave. Rafe - Going to see EJ? She nods. Rafe - God Sami, you're such a fool. Sami - You came all the way over here to tell me that. Rafe - He's not the right man for you alright. He's not.
