Segment 1: Nick tries to leave the lounge but Sonny and Will stand in front of the door. Nick - Are you serious with this? (Now his sleeves are rolled up again). Sonny - Don't you get how this looks for you Nick? Will - Every minute you don't tell the truth you look more guilty man. Nick - What! You're accusing me of trying to beat my brother-in-law to death. That's insane! Will - Okay. Just deny it then 'cause all you're doing right now is not answering the question. Did you attack Rafe? Nick - You ... Will - What? What were you going to say to me?
The cop asks Hope if she knows why Hernandez would have that. (He's referring to the jacket). Hope - It's a gift for his stepson. Cop - Maybe that's our first lead. Do you know who he was taking it too? Hope - EJ DiMera.
Cue repeat of Kate's shocking statement that she and Rafe were lovers. Sami - Excuse me ... What! Is that supposed to a joke. Is it funny? Kate - No. Sami - You and Rafe! Kate looks at Stefano - OMG. You didn't know.
Kayla calls out Come on, come on as Cam shocks Rafe yet again. I'm not getting anything. Kayla - Charge it again. Cam - We're losing him. Gabi rushes into the room. Rafe, OMG, Rafe please come back to me. Please.
Abby comes into the coffeehouse and is surprised to see quite a lineup. Chad comes out of the storage room. Okay you guys, I'll take your orders in order. Abigail says hi. The guy at the front of the line starts complaining. If you wait on your little friend first ... Abby - Hold on there Speedy. She asks Chad if he's here alone. Chad tells her Sonny is off and the other person called in sick. The two options I have are to shut down for the night or me doing it all. Abby - No, there's a third option. She puts on an apron. I can make coffee. Next!
Nick - You're baiting me; is that the strategy? Sonny - Is that why you had to stop Rafe from finding Gabi so he wouldn't tell her what you call guys like us. Will - You were missing when Rafe was found half dead in an alley. Nick - That's enough. I didn't do it. Will - Can you prove it? Nick - I don't have to prove anything. Will - You're going to want to if you're a suspect so why don't you tell me where you were when it happened. You see ... that doesn't look good for you. Nick - I wasn't anywhere near Rafe when he was beaten up. I wasn't. Sonny - He's lying. Will - Yup. We need to tell Hope. Nick - Wait, no.
Kate - I'm going to get out of here and go to the hospital. Sami - On no. You're not going anywhere until you answer a couple or 67 questions. Kate - Sami, let it go! Sami - Let it go! You come barging in here and announce that you are having an affair with my ex-husband and that affair lands him in the hospital without explaining yourself. What the hell is going on? EJ is on the phone. Can I have the front desk please. Sami shrieks - Who are you calling? EJ - I'm calling the hospital to find out Rafe's condition. Sami grits her teeth and turns back to Kate. That's not the point. It isn't true. I know it's not true because you and Rafe ... Kate - What ... is it so hard for you to imagine that you can't even say it. Sami - Yes! Because it's Rafe. He's not that desperate. In fact I can't imagine anyone being stupid enough to get into bed with you. Kate - Really? Because these two did! LMAO at the look on EJ's face!
Maxine pulls Gabi away from Rafe. Let them do their job. She pulls her out of the room. Gabi cries. He's my brother. I need to be with him. Maxine - What you need to do is take a deep breath and calm down. You're not doing yourself any good or him or the doctors standing there at his bed screaming at him. Please honey, you need to shore up for yourself and that baby you're carrying and for Rafe too.
Segment 2: EJ ends his call. No news yet but I have a contact that's going to give me a call. Kate - I'm leaving. Sami grabs her. Wait a second. Kate - What? Sami - You do not walk out of this house without giving me an explanation. You owe me an explanation and you know it. Kate - It's over. We ended it. It never meant anything but I am not made out of stone contrary to public opinion. And I want to know how he is so I am leaving and I am going to the hospital. She leaves. Sami - I swear to God Stefano I am only going to ask once and I will know if you're lying. EJ - Samantha! Sami - Did you have something to do with Rafe being hurt? Did you make someone hurt him? Stefano walks out of the room. Sami - EJ ... EJ - Stefano had nothing to do with it. Sami - How can you be so sure?
Hope hands off the jacket to be bagged. I'm not sure why Rafe was here unless this was where he was going to meet EJ. He was lying on the ground here facing this direction, correct? The attacker I believe came up from behind ... she crouches down and asks for a flashlight. Get the forensics guy from the van. I want a mold of this print.
EJ - I know because I saw something that you missed. When Kate said she was having this affair with Rafe ... Sami - It's impossible! EJ - It's not. When she said that I was watching Stefano. Now I know him just about better than anybody and he's not very often caught off-guard but he was by that. Sami - Because it's a fake. EJ - No, it's true. Sami - How do you know that? EJ - When Kate said that to my father she concocted this entire story about how and why Rafe was attacked and when she realised she was wrong she went pale because she knew she had opened Pandora's Box. Sami - So she wouldn't come barging in here making those accusations if she was making it up. EJ - Exactly. Sami - So who did attack Rafe and why. The phone rings. EJ answers. It's the hospital. Okay thank you. EJ - We better make our way down there. Sami - What!
Will - Okay, I'm waiting. Nick hands him a receipt of some sort. Will - A parking receipt. So? Nick - Do you remember what Hope said about the time that Rafe was probably beaten up. Well you can see by the timestamp on that thing that I was halfway on the other side of town when it happened. There's an entrance time and an exit time and it's not even close to the time Hope said it happened. Okay. Will - Wow, that's kind of convenient. Nick - Convenient, really? You guys hassle me for an alibi and I give you one and you tell me it's too good basically suggesting I parked my car, ran over to where they found Rafe, beat him up and then ran all the way back to my car. Seriously? Sonny - There's still one thing that doesn't add up. Nick - What? Sonny - When you left the coffeehouse before you were fired up to find Rafe so he wouldn't tell his sister what a lousy homophobic bastard you are. Will - And according to Gabi you were on your way to the Pub which I don't think is anywhere near wherever this is. Sonny - What were you doing on the other side of town away from the Pub where your wife said you were headed? Will - Answer me that then maybe I'll believe you.
Kayla keeps administering CPR. Outside the room Maxine reminds Gabi that when she was hospitalized a while ago her brother was here to stand by her. Now you have to do the same for him. Rafe would be very upset if you aren't taking care of yourself. Kate returns as Maxine is telling Gabi - You and that baby are his world and he needs you both. Kate - Listen to Maxine, she knows what she's talking about. Sweetie, what can I do for you? Gabi cries - There were machines and alarms ... his heart stopped beating. Kate holds her close.
Segment 3: Nick flashbacks to talking on his cell. I do not have time to talk to you Vargas; I'm handling your investment. How? By taking it to a contact before the market closes in Hong Kong. Nick - Can I have that please. I think I answered your question and that's way more than I owe either of you. That's the end of the story so if that's not good enough for you; if you want to go and tell Hope that you have a lead and I'm it then go ahead. Let her waste the time and the manpower on nothing. Meanwhile the guy who actually did beat up Rafe will be halfway to the Canadian border. He leaves the room. Will - Well, he may be telling the truth. Sonny - And what if he's not? Will - His alibi seems solid. The way he's acting doesn't but it could be about something else. Outside he room Nick checks the progress of the stocks by looking at various charts.
Gabi - What's taking so long? Kate - Hey, I'm going to let you in on something, okay. Rafe is going to be okay and you know why I'm so sure of that. Gabi - Why? Kate - Because there is nothing on this earth that could ever keep him from being with you when your baby is born. Nothing! He's going to be part of that little girl's life for years and years to come. Gabi - Yeah, he's real excited about the baby. Kate - And you know what else ... I shouldn't be telling you this ... but he has already bought her Christening gown. We saw one in the window of Caplan's and I tried to talk him out of it because I told him it was your choice but he wouldn't hear of it. And it gets worse. If I hadn't been there he would have bought her 1st Communion dress as well. I'm not making it up. Gabi - I know you're not. I'm really glad you told me. Thank you. When she sees Nick she goes into his arms. Nick - Is there any word? Sami and EJ get off the elevator. Sami - Where is he? Where's Rafe? When Gabi sees Kayla come out of the room she goes to her. How is he? Kayla - He's stable. Gabi - Thank you both so much. Cam - You're welcome. He's very strong Gabi. Gabi - I know. Kayla - He's still unconcious but at least we got him back. Gabi sobs - Is he okay? Kayla - Not yet, no.
Chad and Abby work together. Abby screws up an order. The customer is not happy. Chad figures the only reason they're not throwing things at her is because she's one beautiful girl.
Gabi - I thought you said Rafe was stable. Kayla - He is but he's also critical. There's brain swelling. Sami - Dear God. Kayla - We're going to run some tests right now. We'll get the results back, we'll plan our course of action then okay. Gabi - Okay, I understand. Nick suggests she come and get a drink of water. Sami - Who would do this to him? Kate stares at EJ. Nick takes Gabi into the lounge. Hopefully now we can relax a little bit; we got through the worst part. Gabi - What if it's not the worst part? Nick - He survived the cardiac arrest. Gabi - He has swelling on his brain. Nick - I know. Gabi - Why did this happen? I mean, who would do this to my brother? Nick - You guys keep thinking there must be a personal reason for this because Rafe's a cop but the fact is a thousand different things could have happened. He could have been mugged. He could have come upon a robbery and tried to stop it. We're just going to have to wait until Rafe wakes up. Until he does there's no reason to assume that someone necessarily targeted him.
Sami - I just don't understand how something like this could happen. EJ - Do you think it would help if you could go and see him. Will holds Kate's hand. Maybe you can ask Kayla if you can go in and see him. EJ calls Kayla over. I know that Rafe is unconscious but do you think that you'd let Samantha go in and see him. I think it may help her and you never know, it may actually help him too. Kayla - Alright Sami make it brief alright. Sami goes into Rafe's room. She puts her hand on his arm ... EJ watches.
Segment 4: Cam places a call. I need a rush on those results. Will and Sonny go up to him. Sonny - We were wondering if you could tell us anything about Rafe's injuries. Cam - Like what? Sonny - Like how he got them. Cam - I don't have a whole lot of experience in forensics but from what we can tell, he didn't have a chance to defend himself. Will - Was he concious very long? Cam - I'm not sure. The injuries to his head were from mulitple blunt force blows. Whoever did this to Rafe was not trying to land him in the hospital; they were trying to send him to the morgue. Sami sits down next to his bed. Rafe, I care about you. Everyone outside cares about you. When you wake up, you are going to hate this. You are a terrible patient. Everyone fussing over you ... but right now everyone's really worried. Your sister's really worried. You did so much for me, for my kids and Johnny thinks you're a hero. For a long time you were mine. I just want you to get better. We're all waiting for you to get better. She leaves and goes into EJ's arms. Hope returns and sees EJ.
The coffehouse is still pretty full but everyone has been served. Abby - We did good. Chad - No, you did. I was ready to walk out. Chad wants her to take half of the tips. You deserve this and the hourly rate. Abby - Stop. I'm just paying it forward. Chad - Thank you. Abby - It was fun although I don't think my brother JJ will like it that I made him wait so long for his latte. Chad - You're brother's home. School's out already? Abby - No school's not out. At the ripe old age of 17 JJ has discovered trouble. Chad can relate. Abby - You were way, way worse. Fortunately you've outgrown it. Chad - I still find ways of making trouble. Speaking of trouble, Will's mom is a real ... you'll see what I mean. Abby's phone rings. Chad - It's your doctor friend.
Will and Sonny find Kate in the lounge. Will - Grandma, you disappeared. Kate - Yeah, I needed a minute. Will - I understand. You don't want EJ and Mom to find out why you're so upset about Rafe. Kate - Actually that's not even an issue anymore since they all know. Will - How did that happen. Kate - Essentially I told them because I stormed over to Stefano's. I thought he had ordered the beating. It just came out of nowhere and it was so brutal that I thought it had revenge written all over it; Stefano's kind of revenge and it turns out I was dead wrong. Will - He denied it. Kate - He didn't have to. I saw the utter shock on his face when I told the others about me and Rafe. It was obvious Stefano was hearing it for the first time. Will - And my mom was there? Kate - Your mom was there, EJ was there, Stefano was there so they all know. I only have myself to blame.
Stefano is in the living room drinking. You son of a bitch. He throws the glass against the fireplace.
Sami sees Hope and goes and hugs her. Do you know how this happened to Rafe? Do you have any evidence? Hope - Yes we do actually. On the ground next to Rafe was a childsize FBI jacket. Sami - For Johnny. Hope - Yeah and when Rafe was attacked he was on his way to give it to you to give to Johnny, wasn't he EJ? Sami - EJ, is that true?
Segment 5: Cam thanks Abby for understanding. I'm in the middle of an emergency and I don't think I'll get out in time for us to make our date. Abby - We'll reschedule. It worked out well because I'm at the coffeehouse helping Chad; he got swamped. Cam - I'll talk to you tomorrow. I'll make this up to you. Abby can't wait. Chad - How's Apollo? Abby - Be nice. Chad - Told you I was a troublemaker. Abby - You want to make trouble for me and Cameron, is that it? Chad - I think it's too late for that or is it?
EJ - Rafe called and asked me to meet him at the Pub. He told me had Johnny's FBI jacket and he asked if I could meet him so I could give it to him. Sami - And you're just telling me this now? EJ - I didn't want to tell you earlier because I didn't want you to get Johnny's hopes up until I had the jacket in hand. Hope - Weren't you wondering why Rafe was a no show at the pub? Weren't you curious? EJ - Of course I was. I assumed that in your line of work things happen; you get called out on emergencies. I had no idea the reason he wasn't there was because of this nonsense. Sami - Of course you didn't. Honestly Aunt Hope I can't believe you're asking questions like this. You're talking to him like he's a suspect. Hope - That's because he is. Nick asks Gabi if she's ready to go back in. I'm going to be here for you. Everything's going to be okay. His cell rings. I think this is work calling. You go ahead and I'll catch up. Nick checks the charts - It's going up. He looks at a different receipt and recalls when Vargas first met up with him in the park and talked about Nick having connections. Then the encounter in the coffeehouse.
Will asks Kate if she wants some real, good coffee. Kate is alright. Why don't the two of you go. It's going to be a long night. I will call you if anything changes. Will - Are you sure? Kate - I want to be here. I want to be close to Rafe. Will - He's going to make it. Kate nods. He has to. Cam goes into Rafe's room and asks Kayla if there's any change. She sees the folder in his hand. Are those the lab reports. Yeah. They look at them. Kayla - Not much leeway here. Cam - No. Sami - Look Aunt Hope, I don't know what you're talking about but just because he had plans to meet with Rafe does not make him a suspect. Hope - Sami I can't discount anything this early ... Sami - Did you see Rafe? He was beaten half to death. Gabi rushes over to Kayla when she comes out of Rafe's room. What is it? Kayla - Gabi, we need something from you. Gabi - Anything. What? Kayla - Your permission.
Segment 6: Kate walks up as Gabi is saying - I don't understand Kayla. My permission for what? Cam - We've been monitoring your brother's condition and running tests but we have to get the swelling off his brain. That's our main concern. Gabi - Okay, what does that mean? Cam - He needs rest. His brain needs rest. Kayla - And the best option to make that happen is to put your brother in a medically induced coma.
Abby - So us getting closer, Cameron and I, came out of that really. Chad - Everyone showing up at the strip club, coming to his rescue. Abby - Right. It kind of just washed away all the problems that we were having. We sort of picked up right where we left off. What are you thinking? Chad - Nothing. Abby - Chad. Chad - It's not my business but I was wondering if you and Cameron ... I repeat, it's none of my business ... Abby - You're right, it isn't any of your business but the answer to your question is that Cameron is being really cool about my being a virgin. Chad - That's not what I was wondering. God this is awkward. Abby - Awkward for you because I'm totally cool. Chad - It's your favourite topic I'm sure. Abby - It's obviously yours. Chad - No it isn't. I keep thinking about New Years Eve, probably more than I should, when we kissed. Cue flashback. And after Gabi's wedding I could have had a shot with you and I was a jackass ... Abby - Don't shortchange yourself. You were a colossal jackass. Chad - Okay I was. Set that aside, I may have ruined the chance of something great with you. Abby - You may have!!! Chad - Did! But is it too late. Do I stand a chance? Abby - You have customers and I think you can finish this up. Goodnight Chad. She leaves. Chad smiles - She didn't say no.
Will and Sonny stroll hand in hand through the square. Will - It was really hard seeing Rafe like that. My mom looked like a ghost. I know she was with EJ for a long time but she was with Rafe for a really long time. Sonny - He's a great guy. Will - Yeah, he is. He's got to be the same when he comes out.
Nick - How does that work, inducing a coma? Kayla - We give him a controlled dose of an anesthetic, a very powerful one. It puts him in a temporary but very deep state of unconsciousness. Gabi - Isn't he already not awake? Kayla - He will be so sedated that his metabolic rate will slow to almost nothing which is a good thing. That way the swelling on his brain can go down because it's not doing all the work it normally does. Gabi - Isn't it dangerous? Kayla - We will be monitoring him closely but yes, there are some risks. Sami - Kayla, is it the only option? Kayla - Well at this point we think it's the best option. In fact we're sure of it. We did this with my brother Bo and it really did get him through his crisis. Gabi - We have to try, right? Kayla - Right but we can't do it without your permission. Gabi - I have to make this decision? Kayla - You're next of kin so yes you do. Gabi - Yeah do it. You have my permission. Cam - I'll get the paperwork. Kayla tells Gabi she made the right choice.
Segment 7: Kayla, Cam and another Dr are in Rafe's room. Kayla - Let's do it. The other doctor administers the drug into the IV.
Will - I'm sorry. Sonny - For what? Will - For making your life so complicated. Sonny - That's unfair for you to say that because when we weren't together I may not have been in love and happy but at least my life was simple. Will - It didn't have to be me though. You're a handsome man. You can have any guy you wanted. You could at least have someone who doesn't have so much ... Sonny - Don't say baggage. I'm really sick of that word. Will - You know, someone who's not about to be a father. Someone who doesn't behave recklessly and doesn't live with regret, guilt ... Sonny - What happened to Rafe is not your fault. Will - Well indirectly it could be if it turns out Nick was the one who did it. Sonny - But he didn't. You heard his alibi. It seemed solid. Will - Yeah, I hope so. Sonny - I know this is rough but I'm not letting you take it out on yourself. Will - If I did not have you ... Sonny - Stop. You do have me. You always will have me. Will - I better.
Everyone waits arounnd outside Rafe's room. In his room the doctors watch Rafe.
