Segment 1: Dan tells Jen she doesn't mean it when she tells him they need to take a break from each other. Jen doesn't want to do this but she doesn't know how they can go on if he's not willing not to have any contact with Chloe whatsoever and she doesn't think he's ready for that. I hear the words coming out of my mouth and I know it sounds like an ultimatum but that's now what I want it to be. Dan knows but it's an ultimatum. Jen - The most important thing for you is to be with your son but Chloe is not going to stop. It's just going to get worse and worse. Dan - And you can't live like that, I know. Jen - I know that she's not going to get you back but I also know she will eventually end up killing whatever we have between us.
Nancy calls Chloe to let her know that she's got her plane ticket, her bags are packed and she can't wait to see her and her precious grandson. Chloe doesn't know if now is a good time. She wants her to come it's just that everything is a lot more complicated than she thought. Nancy tells Chloe to tell her all about it.
Abby apologises for walking in on a naked Cameron. Cam - What's wrong? Cam stops her from leaving. I can tell you're upset about something.
Rafe rubs Gabi's stomach - Arianna Grace, that's a beautiful name. Gabi is already asking Ari to watch out for her. Kate comes in. She just wanted to see how Gabi is. Gabi - Thank you, I'm fine so goodbye. Just go okay. Kate - Sure, I'll leave this here for you. Get some rest. She puts down a gift bag and is about to leave when Rafe asks her to wait. Rafe looks at Gabi - I know you're upset but she's just trying to be nice. She's worried about you and the baby. Gabi - Why are you defending her?
Sami - Will, why don't you wait? Why don't we think this through before you do anything. Nick - You know what the choice is here Will and trust me, you don't want to spend any time in prison. Will - If I could go to prison without dragging anyone else down I would. At least she could come visit me, I could see her when I got out. (It's hard to understand what he's saying but it ends with) 'she'd be better off without me.' Sami grabs the pen - I just want a second. Just give me one second. Sami turns to Nick. I have something I want to say to you. Just the 2 of us. Lucas doesn't think that's a good idea. Sami does. I think it's important for Nick and I to talk, just the two of us. They all leave the room. Nick - You can threaten me and Gabi all you want but I'm not backing down. Sami - I'm not here to threaten you, I'm here to make you an offer. I will do anything to make sure that Will does not lose his daughter. Nick - Unfortunately there's nothing you can do. Sami - You're wrong. There is something. I will take an oath, I will sign anything, I will swear that I will stay out of that baby's life.
Segment 2: Sami - Get an injunction that will keep me away from the child, I won't fight it, I will sign it. Think about it. I am the one who made the mistakes, I'm the one you have a problem with, not Will, so punish me not him. Nick - This is not a punishment Sami, do you understand. I'm protecting Gabi and our baby. Sami - Yeah but you don't have to protect that baby from Will. It's his child. He's totally committed to her. Nick - Oh really, was he totally committed to her when he took Gabi to get an abortion? Sami - You don't understand what he ... Nick - You need to face facts here Sami. Will is just like you. He will not commit to anything unless it's convenient and those committments have a tendency to subside very quickly. Sami grabs him - You're talking about his child. This is Will's baby girl and that has to mean something to you. You love Gabi right? You love her and this child that she's carrying but Will being a part of this baby's life doesn't have to change that for you. It's me you have a problem with and I totally understand that so if you promise that Will will be part of his daughter's life I will disappear. I will stay away from that child forever. Nick - You know what Sami I think you actually mean that.
Rafe scoffs. Defending her? No, just wondering why you're so tough on her. Gabi - I'm tired and I'm upset and I also can't forget how hard she was on Nick. Kate - We were in negotiations. He was hard on me too and I respect him for that. None of that really matters. You're having Will's baby and that's what's important to me. You have the upper hand because I will do practically anything to be part of that baby's life. This gift is just the start ... if I have to buy you a new car, send you on a trip to Europe ... Rafe - So you think you can buy her affections? Kate - I'm going to try. Go ahead and open it, see how I'm doing so far.
Cam - Is this about the other day. I'm sorry I ran out on you. Abby - No, that's not with this is about. Something really terrible happened today. Something awful. I got in this huge fight with Chloe and I think I screwed up my mom's life completely. Cam hugs her.
Dan - Love is what we have between us and she's not going to kill that. Jen wants him to hear what she's saying because it's so important. I don't want to give up on us. I want to fight so hard for what we have so I don't understand why we can't draw this line in the sand for Chloe and ask her to honour that. Dan - If we draw this line in the sand what is going to happen to my son? You were okay with this before. Jen - That was before all this trouble happened; before I knew how obsessed she was with you; before she dragged my daughter into this and taunted her with the memory of her dead father. Dan - What! Jen - Oh, she didn't tell you about that? Wow, how unusual for Chloe to leave out a pertinent detail like that. Dan - I am going to make sure ... Jen - I know what you're going to say. You're going to make sure that it never happens again. You can't. Dan - You don't think it's going to get even worse if I don't talk to her. Jen - I have no idea. I don't know how to get through to her obsessed, sick mind right now because she is out of control. I see what she's doing to you and I feel for you in this situation, I really do but now that she's dragged my daughter into this I am not going to go down this road that you are proposing. Letting us believe that everything is going to be okay and deluding ourselves into thinking that Chloe just wants to be a good mom to Parker when her agenda is so clear. We don't have to talk about it anymore. You know why I made this decision and you know how I feel so now it's up to you.
Segment 3: Chloe doesn't know if there's anything she or her mom can do if Daniel agrees to what Jennifer wants I'm not sure I'll be able to get close enough to him to win him back. Nancy - Listen to me. Everything will work out. We'll find a way for you to get him back. I promise you that.
Dan has to go and tuck Parker in. Goodnight. He kisses Jen.
Cam - She spoke about your father? Abby - Yeah she acted like we didn't even care that he had died and she accused me of pimping out my Mom to Daniel because I'm trying to get back at my Dad for deserting me for all those years. Then I attacked her physically. Cam - Well I hope she's missing teeth. Abby - What if she's right? Cam - She's not right. I was there. I saw how much that affected you and how much you loved him. Abby - I just ... why was he so determined to save me! Cam - Don't say that, don't think that. Abby - It should have been me on that elevator!
Gabi - Thank you so much. It's a gift certificate to the spa for the whole day. It's perfect. Thank you. Kate - Great, so does that mean I don't have to buy you that new car?
Will asks EJ - Is there any way if I take responsibility for my actions, I can just serve the sentence and not drag anybody else down with me? EJ - I think under the circumstances Nick has a pretty good case. Sorry. I don't think the Board of Inquiry would understand what your grandfather did. Bo and Hope not properly investigating evidence that implicated you and then there's what your father did. Lucas - Don't worry about me, I'll be fine. EJ - Lucas, you already perjured yourself twice. Will - I do worry about you Dad. You've suffered enough because of my stupidity and I don't want to hurt anybody anymore. Lucas - What about your own daughter? Do you really want her to be raised by a blackmailing murderer?
Sami - I do mean it. Nick - Yeah, you do. That's why people keep falling for your lies because when you say them you actually mean them. Sami - I'll put it in writing. I'll sign anything right now. Nick - It doesn't matter because tomorrow morning you'll wake up and try to find some way to change it. You don't change Sami, no matter what you promise. Sign something, put your hand on a bible ... I do not believe you.
Segment 4: Nick heads to the door but Sami grabs him. No, I'm offering you something that is so precious to me. I am offering you my time with my granddaughter for Will. So think what you want of me but no one will argue that I do not love my children. Nick - Sami, you just tried to blackmail me by sending Gabi to prison, the mother of your unborn granddaughter to prison. Sami - I was desperate ... Nick - And you still are. Do you really think for one minute that if Will were to be able to see this baby, hold in her his arms, spend time with her that you'd be able to prevent yourself from elbowing your way in on that. You would not be able to stop yourself from interfering and making Gabi's life totally, totally miserable. Sami starts screaming over top of him - You don't have rights to this child. You are a blackmailer and a murderer and you are trying to steal another man's child. You don't deserve to raise any child never mind my son's daughter. Nick - Huh. Sami - I didn't mean that. Nick - I think Sami we both know that you did mean that. Listen, this conversation has ceased to be productive on any level so I'm going to go get the notary and Will to sign his paper.
Will - I know Nick is doing this wrong but he's only doing it because he's scared. He's scared of what Mom did. I mean Gabi almost lost the baby during one of my mom's attacks. EJ - You're not seriously suggesting that man is justified in what he's doing. Will - No, I'm not. I'm just saying that Nick in saying that what Mom did was just one example of the dysfunction of our family. He does not think that is a healthy environment for a child to grow up in and he's going to do everything he can to protect Gabi and the baby from her. Nick steps up - That's right, I will.
Cam - I was there Abigail. Your father is a true hero and I'm so grateful you're still alive. He'd hate it if you felt guilty for what he did of his own free will. Abby - Thanks, when you say it I can kind of believe it. Cam - Believe it because it's the truth. Thank God you're still alive. He kisses her forehead.
Dan - I am not giving up on us. I will make you see that I can make this work and give my son everything he needs. I love you. Jen - I love you. They kiss again and then he leaves. Jen - Maybe love is enough. She flings the door open but Dan's already gone.
Sami tells EJ - He hates me and he's using me to hurt Will and I played right into his hand. Nick - I don't see a reason to put this off any longer. Does anyone else. Sonny - Will, please talk to my Dad. Nick - What is another lawyer going to tell him? We can't wait any longer. Will looks at Nick - Somewhere deep in your heart you know this is wrong. Nick - I only know what's best for Gabi and this baby. He hands Will the papers and the pen. Will looks around and signs them.
Segment 5: Abby thanks Cam for talking to her; she actually feels better. Cam is glad. You're amazing; you should always feel good about yourself. Abby does when she's with him. Cam has to get back to work. Can I see you tomorrow? Abby would like that.
Dan lets himself into his apt. Chloe asks him if he's made a decision yet about Jennifer's ultimatum. Dan isn't here to talk about that. He's here to stay goodnight to Parker. Chloe - You're too late. He fell asleep in his playpen. He was so cute, trying to stay awake, saying where Daddy? Dan - Really! Chloe - Do you think I'm lying? Dan - I think you enjoy making me feel guilty. You need to call your mother and tell her to get here right away until we find a nanny. Maybe by the time we hire someone we'll have made some decisions on how everything is going to work here. Chloe - You mean the Jennifer Horton plan goes into effect? Dan - Did I say that? I don't think I said that. Chloe - Have you even thought about it? If we can't be in the same room how are we going to go to his nursery school interviews or his birthday parties or whatever. Are you seriously going to let Jennifer dictate how we parent our child! Dan - Ssh! Chloe - Sorry. It's hard for me to keep my voice down when we're talking about my son's life. I'm going to go call my mom. Dan kneels down by the playpen. I'm going to do what's best for you. What the hell is that!
The notary tells Nick the papers are in order. I'll take them to your lawyer. Nick - I think we're done here. I think everyone understands the importance of discretion. As far as people outside of this room, this was Will's decision. I say that to protect you Will because the fact is I have nothing to lose if the truth comes out whereas Will, on the other hand ... Lucas - You're great grandfather practically built this hospital. If he could see you now he'd be disgusted. You are not a Horton. Nick - I need to go find Gabi. EJ - Nick, 4 years ago I stood in a courtroom and asked for leniency for you, leniency you got. Leniecy without which you would not have gotten your parole. William is like a son to me and I belong to a family you do not want to mess with. Nick - You don't scare me. EJ - Then you're a lot more stupid than you look. Nick stares him down. Maybe. Then he walks away leaving behind a dumbfounded EJ. Sami is hugging Will crying her crocodile tears. He's a viscious S.O.B. but it's my fault. I'm so sorry. Will - No, I have nobody to blame but myself. He turns to Sonny - Can you take me home? Lucas goes to Sami - You tried. It's not your fault. Sami - He can't get away with this. Lucas - It looks like he just did. He leaves. Hypocrite Sami asks EJ - How can anybody be so cruel?
Nick asks Gabi how she's feeling. Good, how about you? Nick - Excited, happy. All of our problems are over. Everyone finally came to their senses. Will, his whole family, they all finally realised that you and the baby are the biggest priority. No one, not even Sami, is going to be able to bother us now. Gabi - What did you do? Nick - I did what I had to do and now I want to marry you as soon as possible.
Segment 6: EJ comes into Sami's office. He wants to go home, all of this can wait until the morning. Sami is in a snit. EJ insists she needs to go home and get some rest. Sami whines - Why? So I can ruin the rest of my kids lives? EJ - Would you let me help you?
Sonny and Will return to Will's dorm room. Sonny wishes there was something he could say. Will - It's over now. Will looks at the sonogram - Our little girl.
Gabi - That totally came out of the blue. Nick - You know how much I want to marry you. Gabi - All of a sudden you want to get married right now. You told Rafe that we'd wait. Nick - And we waited over a month. You know how much I want the 3 of us to be a happy family. I wouldn't do anything to screw this up. There's no more reason to wait. Please marry me. Gabi - Yes of course. She hugs him.
Chloe comes back in the room and tells Dan that her mom will be here tomorrow. Dan - Good. And once again you are going to stay away from Jennifer and Abigail. If you happen to run into them you cross the street and stay away from them. Chloe - I said I would do that and I'm going to keep my word. Dan - Good. He leaves.
Segment 7: Abby is at home. Mom, I lost it because of Chloe but I'm fine now. I hate it that you and Daniel are breaking up because you're worried about me. Jen - We are not breaking up. We're just trying to figure it all out right now. Abby - It feels like it's my fault. Jen - It's not. It's not my fault. It's not Daniel's fault. I just hope that Daniel figures out whose fault it is and he gets Chloe out of his life for good.
Nancy calls Dan. It's so good to hear your voice. Dan - Who is this? Nancy - It's your son's proud grandma. Dan - Nancy, sorry ... Nancy - Don't worry about that, it's been a long time since we've spoken but that's all going to change. I can't wait to see Parker again. Dan - It's really nice of you to help us out like this. Nancy - Thank you Daniel. There's something that I want to say. I know a lot of what's going on. I love Chloe to death but I can clearly see that she needs to let go, move on. I'd like to maybe sit down with you when I get back to Salem. Maybe I can help Chloe find her way through all of this. Dan - That would be great. Nancy - Good, then we'll talk when we get there.
Chloe gets a call from her mom. It went great. I stayed on script and he bought it all. Chloe - Thank you so much. Nancy - Don't worry honey. It's all going to work out just the way you planned.
Cam tells Nick not to forget that Gabi needs her sleep. After Cam leaves Gabi tells Nick she hopes she's not too excited to sleep. I love you Nick. Nick - I love you so much and I'm going to make you so happy. They kiss.
Rafe and Kate are in bed together when Rafe's phone rings. Rafe - I really don't want to get that but it's work so I have to. He takes the call. Okay, I'll be right there. Sorry. Kate - That's okay. Duty calls. Rafe - It won't take long. I'll make sure it doesn't take long. Kate - So what are you trying to say? Rafe - Stay here if you want. I'll be back. They kiss.
When EJ tries to touch her Sami starts stomping around. She doesn't want his sympathy and she sure as hell doesn't deserve it. I don't need you. She blubbers. I'm sorry. I do. More blubbering.
Will - I just can't get away from the fact that this is all my fault. Sonny - And Nick, he's just blameless? Would you please talk to my dad? Will - There's nothing to talk about. Sonny - So you're just going to give up after everything Nick did to you? Will - I don't know. I get why he did it. It wasn't fair. Sonny - And it was cruel. Will - Yes, and it was wrong but he's just trying to do what he thinks is best to protect Gabi and what he sees as his family. Sonny - Protect? From you? Will - From my family, my mom. He's right about how screwed up ... Sonny - No, that is just an excuse. I've been thinking about this. I was trying to piece this whole thing together. Nick played you and Gabi and everyone. You think that he just stumbled upon this evidence of what you did. No. He went looking for it and he found it and he sat back and waited for something to happen so he could justify using it. This whole thing was planned. That was why he was so thrilled when your mom got in it. Will - No. Sonny - Yes. You really think he's doing all this because your mother butted in? Will, he's doing this because you're gay.
