- Nicole is at the pub with friend Phil.  EJ walks in so Phil makes himself scarce. EJ notes she is only drinking orange juice. Is she alright? She thinks she has a bug but is otherwise fine. He is happy to join her for breakfast. Nicole admits she is tired of the Salem Inn. EJ wishes he could leave the DiMera mansion with Johnny but he cannot, due to legal complications and problems with fatha. He fills Nicole in on the cocktail party. He cannot figure out why Stefano was trying to win over everyone there, except for John. Nicole complains about her lot in life. EJ suggests she leave Salem for a remote tropical paradise. She replies she does not want to, cos she would have no one to share
it with. They smile at each other. EJ says there is nothing more in the world he would love than to run away to a deserted island with her if only he could. He hopes they will be able to explore their feelings for each other somehow. He suggests they begin with a date. He would start with an early drink, after that, lobster dinner, then a romantic moonlight stroll on the water. She deserves to be treated like a lady.
He would walk her to the door and cap the date with a kiss and
promise to call the next day. Nicole starts to cry. She walks away.
EJ follows. She thinks he is not ready to move on for real. Sami
would need to be out of the picture. EJ reminds her that Johnny has
to take precedence until he grows up so Sami will be in that picture. Nicole respects that. She would have no problem sharing him with Johnny, just Sami. They sit back down. EJ wants her to give a little
so they have a chance. Nicole will be flexible, if Sami does the same. She smiles. And when is he gonna ask her out?
- Outside, Kate coughs. Phil comes up and he is concerned. Kate acts flippant. He calls her assistant Chris and tells him to clear the diva’s schedule for the day. They are going to the hospital!
- At the hospital, Daniel rushes in. He has been called to testify at Lexie's board hearing. He tells a nervous Lexie he was summoned in the last minute. Lexie nervously looks thru her files. Dan feels it is a positive thing, considering his high opinion of her. Lexie fears she has enemies and she has indeed fallen behind on some of her duties. Dan reassures her. Enter diva Julie, who informs Lexie she is on her side! They head off  for the hearing. Victor is in attendance. Mickey is
there as well. Julie, Victor, and Mickey are all supportive of Lexie. However, head gal Eleanor is hard on Lexie and complains there was no fundraiser this year. Why did she not contact the fundraising committee? She thinks Lexie is unqualified.
- At the police station,Abe laments to Roman about the board meeting. Stefano comes into the conversation. Abe vows to nail him! Roman promises his support. Abe leaves. When he returns, Roman tells him
he just got a call from the mayor, who is on his way to meet them.. Mayor Marino sweeps in. The slick dude claims they have a serious problem there is no easy way to make go away. He glances at Abe. There is an op-ed piece in today’s paper criticizing the dept's tepid response to the hospital situation. This is not the first time he has gotten complaints about the Salem P.D. They did not even contact Homeland Security. What if it had been a terrorist attack? Abe
blames the mayor for letting Stefano walk. The mayor replies there
is no evidence that the phoenix was involved. He comes down on the Salem P.D. They need to decide who was to blame, seeing as groups and City Hall are breathing down his neck. The mayor seems to want
a fall guy! Abe is mad and accuses him of scapegoating. Abe is madder still when the mayor accuses him of doing a half-hearted job. He implies Stefano bribed the good mayor. Roman grins. The mayor is smoothly indignant. He has heard enough. Abe now regrets he ever voted for him. The mayor gives him a final warning. Abe says he does not want to work for a corrupt City Hall, he will get Stefano on his own. Roman tries to intervene but Abe whips out his badge, puts it on the desk, announcing "I quit!" and walks out.
- Phil and Kate arrive at the hospital. It is Kayla's day off. Dr. Dan happens along and he has time. Phil does not want Kate near the doc. Dan advises him to put his opinion of him aside. Kate needs tests and x-rays. Phil relents and they discuss her cough. Dan needs Phil's help. When Kate walks back from booking her next appointment with Doc Kayla, Phil presses her to get the x-ray now. Dan seconds the motion. Kate is soon in bed, getting a check-up and tests. She admits to shortness of breath sometimes. Phil is worried. Dan is solemn. He will return soon. Phil wants to take care of Kate the way she used to care for him .. .
- Dan enters the board meeting, disagrees with head gal Eleanor, and compliments Lexie. Eleanor then asks if Dan feels Theo’s autism has affected her work. Lexie answers, admitting it might have affected her performance. But not her commitment. Dan sticks up for Lexie as someone with a heart and compassion so she is the best doc the hospital could have to lead it. He goes on and on with the compliments. Later, the board deliberates. Do they keep Dr. Carver as chief of staff or let her go?
- Meanwhile, Kate is with doting son Phillip and suddenly starts to cough up blood. Phil cries out for help ...!

too much to keep up with. Abe tries to comfort her. Lexie is anxious. Abe does not understand why the hospital review board is being hard on her.

EJ agrees. Stefano insists they remain to see and hear why Marlena and her black heart have been summoned. It is time their families know the truth, what she is capable of. Marlena walks out of the room. John asks her to return. Marlena is dismayed. She did put him in a coma, he is right. John is
on her side, as she injected Stefano for taking away her husband so he got what he deserved! Furthermore, he would kill anyone who would hurt her like that again. Marlena sheds a tear as she remembers that John is right. John then tells Blondie she should feel empowered about having taken matters into her own hands. He can see why he was so
in love with her in the past. Meanwhile, Stefano rants that Dr. Evans put him in the coma. The guests are doubtful. Marlena returns and admits it is all true. She injected him with the coma-inducing toxin and given the chance to do it again, she just might! Anna is shocked. Sami defends her mother. Stefano accuses his former queen of the night of playing god. Blondie explains she is not proud, yet she knew he had to be stopped before he hurt another! The phoenix calls it torture. Sami says he deserved it and she is proud of her mother. The phoenix understands her defense of her mother. He is more interested in his son's view. However, they have no sympathy for him. Stefano stares. "This is the final insult. I am through with both of you. As of this moment, I put you on notice, Vengeance will be mine!" John retorts that he is hereby putting the phoenix on notice! John then meets alone with his brother. Tony and EJ believe they will have to do something. Sami offers Marlena her full support. Marlena is sorry she was so hard on her at the police station. Sami promises to be less impulsive. At the meeting of John and Stefano, the pawn states he wants him to stay away from Marlena and not breathe a word of what she did. Cigar smoking Stefano insists she will pay. John announces that this means war and walks out! The phoenix laughs and pours himself a brandy as EJ and Tony re-enter. He is putting all his ducks in a row!
John heads for Blondie. Exit Sami. John is proud of Marlena. He is ready for the phoenix and will protect her as long as he is alive ...!
