Sami awaits her bail hearing in court. Eric shows up for support. The proceedings begin. Justin asks that Sami be released on her own recognizance. DA Melinda Trask laughs and tells the judge there's new evidence. She also calls Sami a flight risk. They recess while the judge reviews the video. Melinda reminds Abe the mayor instructed him to help her. He knows. He has already had to arrest his friend's daughter in public. Wasn't that enough? He wonders what difference he makes. The judge returns and is about to set bail when Melinda says she has a witness who can attest that Sami is a flight risk. Justin argues that Sami has young children and family in Salem. She was saving the life of a man she cares for. Trask asks if they've interviewed Rafe yet and EJ jumps up and yells that Rafe was in a coma. Sami tries to keep quiet but asks who Trask's special witness is. The judge shuts them all down and Trask tells the judge that the DiMeras have a private jet with a private island in Morocco which currently has no extradition treaty with USA. She overheard EJ telling Sami he'd do what it takes to get her out of jail. Abe Carver can confirm this. Abe purses his lips and takes the stand. He did hear EJ say EJ knew what to do to keep Sami safe. Melinda tells the judge that last year EJ was involved in a high stakes case. He removed his ankle monitor and fled Salem while he was out on bail - all with Sami's help. The judge denies bail and Sami's taken, sobbing, to her cell.
