Days Of Our Lives Recaps
DAYS Week of June 28, 2010
Rafe went to see Sami at the DiMera mansion. "I missed you," said Sami, drawing him into a hug. Rafe explained about Anna and Calliope and being in jail. He never found out who put Sami through hell, and came home empty-handed, lamented Rafe. So the whole time he was gone it was for her? asked a touched Sami. He wanted justice be served, sidestepped Rafe. Good luck with that, snapped Sami. The conversation's tone changed, and they bickered about Arianna and EJ. Rafe asked just what was going on between Sami and DiMera. The kids like it at the mansion, said Sami, adding that it got lonely at her place. "So you turned to EJ," sneered a disgusted Rafe. He walked out on her, so he doesn't get a say in her life, pointed out Sami, and accused him of being jealous. Rafe pulled her into a passionate kiss.
A teary Kate visited Alice's gravesite after the service to say goodbye. Bill found her there, and overheard Kate talking about regrets. "Nobody can help me," sighed Kate.
Chad was upset that Mia left town with just a text message. Without mentioning that she'd paid Mia to get out of town, his mother urged him to give Mia space. Will also wondered about Mia, but Maggie couldn't explain why Mia had just "up and left." Later, Madeline confronted Kate about the incriminating tape she'd snatched. "I hope you're happy," she snapped.
Kim was furious that Shane had appeared out of nowhere. Where was he when she was fighting for her life with leukemia? cried Kim. He never got the messages about her illness because he was imprisoned, explained Shane. "I wish I could have been there," he said earnestly, apologizing for letting her down. He never stopped thinking about her. "I had to see you right now...to see if there's a chance for us." Go to hell, spat Kim — he doesn't care about her or their children. Breaking down, Kim ordered Shane out. "This isn't over," said Shane as he walked out the door.
Back at the house, the family looked through a photo album as they reminisced about Alice. Ciara wanted to hear the story of how Alice had saved Bo and Hope. "I wish Great Grandma could save you and Daddy now," she sighed. Kayla encouraged Hope to reunite with Bo — somebody has to make the first move, she urged. Hope objected when Bo and Roman discussed the case against Arianna. "You don't think I have the chops to solve this case, admit it," she accused. The case isn't getting solved and she obviously needs some help, countered Bo — Hope's spread a little thin and she's under a lot of stress. Ciara told Theo she missed her treasures. Hope overheard her daughter talk about Hope hugging a strange man. "What kind of stories are you making up now?" she asked. Meanwhile, Dr. Baker thought back to a conversation he'd had with Hope, and realized she was a bomb about to go off... "and the next victim will be her husband."
One by one, visiting family departed. Carrie found Lucas to say goodbye. "Give Austin my best," said Lucas sincerely. She always felt bad about the way the ended, admitted Carrie; the exes embraced. "I'm sorry I missed saying goodbye, Grandma," said Mike, having escaped from his hospital bed, but acknowledged, "You haven't left us." Alone, Maggie held a photo of Mickey to her heart.
Sami and Rafe’s argument led to a passionate kiss, which EJ interrupted. Then, Stefano walked in. Rafe explained he was there with news: He’d found Anna. Rafe said Anna confessed to her part in Sydney’s kidnapping, but then became incapacitated. She was poisoned, went to the hospital, and disappeared. “You idiot!” growled Stefano. Rafe stormed out. Sami followed. Inside, Stefano sensed something was amiss. He asked EJ if something happened before he got here. EJ swore nothing had. Outside, Rafe and Sami spat about her moving into the mansion. Sami asked why Rafe kissed her. "That was goodbye," he noted. It didn't feel like goodbye to Sami. Rafe left. When Sami returned inside, EJ laced into her about reconciling with Rafe. Sami swore nothing had changed. EJ said Sami knew how he felt. He brought up their kiss and admitted he loved her.
Kate told Madeline she knew “everything,” after returning the contents of her safety deposit box. She’d gone through things. "Did you tell Stefano?" asked Madeline. “Not yet,” retorted Kate, noting she just wanted them to move on. Madeline asked if that meant Kate would keep mum. Kate wasn’t sure, admitting she was in a bad position. Later, Stefano met Kate on the pier. He explained that Rafe was back in town and still searching for the truth about Sydney’s kidnapping. The matter was upsetting EJ. Stefano vowed to find out why.
Carly and Jennifer bumped into each other at Alice's grave. Jennifer sensed something was bothering Carly. Carly explained her guilt over keeping Melanie from Daniel and the dilemma she had right now: Daniel thought something wonderful had happened, but it could turn out to be very sad. Jennifer encouraged Carly to get things right this time. Carly thanked Jennifer and left. Alone, Jennifer knelt at Alice’s grave and sobbed about never forgetting her.
Melanie walked in on Philip trying to phone Chloe. The pair discussed Daniel and Chloe and why they’d put off their wedding. Melanie wanted to call Carly, who might know. Philip suggested letting Chloe and Daniel handle this and left. Chloe woke up and Daniel assured her she wasn’t dreaming; they were having a baby. Chloe was thrilled, until she remembered romping with Philip. She asked Daniel how far along she was. Daniel told her two months. Chloe looked concerned. Daniel thought it was because she was worried her elevator accident might have affected their child and assured Chloe the baby was fine. Chloe bemoaned all the time she spent being insecure. Daniel assured Chloe of his love. Chloe said she had something to tell him, but Daniel stopped Chloe from confessing. He insisted he should have been there for Chloe, when she was feeling insecure. A nurse walked in with Chloe’s release forms, and Daniel left. Carly arrived, reminding Chloe her baby may not be Daniel’s. Chloe flipped, insisting this was Daniel's child.
Gabi visited Arianna in jail and told her Rafe was back in town. Later, Rafe arrived at Arianna's cell and vowed to get her out of there. Gabi split. Rafe asked Arianna about her case. She mentioned EJ. Rafe freaked and asked what EJ had to do with any of this. Arianna revealed EJ was her lawyer. Rafe said he would take care of things. Arianna asked if this was about her or Sami.
Kayla listened as Stephanie discussed how happy she was with Nathan and mentioned Philip. Steph said they were still involved, but not romantically. She was worried about something he might have done. Steph explained that if Philip hurt Melanie, she’d run back to Nathan. Kayla started to give advice, when she got a call. Philip arrived, and Steph said she thought he'd done something wrong. Philip warned her to stay out of it. Kayla returned as Steph got called off to work. Kayla accused Philip of hurting people, like her and Steve, when he took his son, Pocket, from them and gave the tyke away. She wondered if he might give up on his marriage just as easily. Melanie overheard.
Daniel visited Melanie at Maggie’s and told her she was going to be a big sister. Melanie wasn’t sure she was ready to share her dad. Daniel promised no one could ever take her place. Back at the hospital, Carly and Chloe went back and forth about Chloe’s pregnancy. Carly insisted Daniel deserved to know the truth. Just then, Daniel returned. Chloe said Carly was just leaving. "The hell I am," retorted Carly.
"There's something I have to tell you about you and Chloe and about the baby," announced Carly. Daniel freaked, thinking something was wrong. Carly reassured him the baby was fine. A nurse interrupted, noting there had been a big accident. Carly and Daniel rushed off, and Nicole rushed in, rambling about EJ. She noticed Chloe wasn't wearing a wedding ring and asked if Chloe told Daniel about her fling with Philip. Chloe hadn't, but thought Carly could be telling Daniel the truth now. In the hall, Daniel told Carly he wouldn't have believed something, if she'd told him a week ago. Turned out they were discussing an accident victim and a mother who hadn't strapped in her baby. Carly said the woman made a mistake. Nicole urged Chloe to focus on what she wanted. Chloe vowed not to let Carly take away her happiness. Daniel asked if Chloe had made a mistake, too. Carly said if there was a problem, it was up to Chloe to tell him. Daniel returned and asked Nicole for a moment alone with Chloe. He asked if there was something he needed to know. Chloe swore she wouldn't keep anything from Daniel, and they kissed. As they left the hospital, Carly watched and wondered what to do now.
Melanie probed Philip about why he didn't let Steve and Kayla keep Pocket. Philip claimed he wasn't ready to be a father and didn't want to be reminded of a part of his life he wanted to forget. The couple he gave Pocket to were kind and loving. Melanie understood, and Philip was pleased. Melanie asked if Philip wanted to have a kid again. He said he did. So did Melanie, when the time was right.
Shane found Kimberly in Bo and Hope's living room and said he had something to tell her. Kimberly didn't want to talk and stormed off. Later, Shane turned up at the pub. Kimberly reluctantly let him in. Shane handed Kimberly a paper. "So you're leaving the ISA," she said. Shane said they'd accepted his resignation. His whole life being about the mission was over. He wanted to be near his family and hoped Kimberly would give him another chance.
Sami was stunned by EJ's declaration of love. EJ pressed her to admit she was living at the DiMera mansion because she wanted to be with him. Sami insisted they were "just friends." "That is the biggest lie I have heard you tell, yet," retorted EJ. Sami erupted and tried to leave. EJ stopped her. EJ said Sami's fight was one of the things he loved about her. Then, he asked why she'd kissed him. Sami swore it was a momentary thing. EJ insisted the kiss meant something, that Sami wanted and needed him as much as he needed her. He inched closer to Sami, noting that they belonged together, when his phone rang. Sami pulled away and told EJ to answer it. EJ said it was Arianna. Her arraignment was moved up. He kissed Sami on the lips and left.
Rafe told Arianna to get rid of EJ. He'd help her get out of jail. "Is this about me or Sami?" asked Arianna. Rafe didn't want to talk about Sami. He asked where Brady fit into all this. Arianna admitted they'd broken up and insisted EJ was helping her. Rafe went on about how EJ and Sami connected, while he was off chasing Anna. He got nothing and now he and Sami were farther apart than ever. Arianna didn't think Sami and Rafe were meant to be. Rafe thought she might be right. EJ arrived and asked for a moment with his client. Rafe told EJ he was fired. His sister didn't need him any more. EJ said Rafe was as useful to Arianna as he was to Sami, when he vowed to find Sydney. Rafe fumed. Arianna intervened. She was due in court and needed someone to help her. Rafe calmed down, told EJ not to screw up, and left. Arianna wondered what she'd do if the judge denied bail. EJ said they'd appeal the decision. Meanwhile, Nicole was on the phone with Baker, noting she didn't find out what EJ had on her. But if he stood up in court and said he could prove they planted evidence to frame Arianna, they were dead meat. Nicole turned around and saw Rafe standing there.
