Sami and EJ arrive at Salem PD, where Mr. Burke awaits in Roman's office. Roman explains they are meeting there because Roman was busy with work and couldn't get away. Marlena and John arrive and much to everyone's surprise, Nicole shows up. Nicole's there to testify about EJ and Sami's unholy matrimony, she says with a grin. An angry Sami demands that Roman kick Nicole out but when he doesn't, Nicole confesses her confusion. She thought EJ was born in the USA, and asks if that would mean he had dual citizenship. EJ explains that would have been true but when he was born, his mother tried to pass him off as someone else's baby, so his original birth certificate became null and void. They moved to the UK and his mother married Edmond, a UK citizen, and EJ became a UK citizen because of it. He is legally a citizen of the UK. Nicole is confused and snorts that she could use a drink after that confusing back story. John goes inside Roman's office to talk with Mr. Burke. While John's with Mr. Burke, Sami paces. Marlena and Roman ask Sami to stay calm. Nicole munches on a doughnut and says she's there to help. EJ threatens Nicole not to say a word against he or Sami while talking to Mr. Burke. Sami thanks him for sticking up for her, but she worries it's not enough to help.

Mr. Burke asks John questions about EJ and Sami. Later, Nicole comes out of Roman's office giggling with Mr. Burke. Nicole grins as Mr. Burke kisses her hand and Nicole teases Sami when she says Johnny will have a nice time visiting his father in the UK! Sami jumps Nicole and is pulled off her by Roman and Marlena. Mr. Burke calls Sami and EJ into Roman's office.

Philip has lunch at the pub while he talks to Max about his work. Max admits he not only has to do community work, and tend bar, he has to find a third job, to make ends meet. Philip offers Max a job minding the docks and helping him take down John Black, but Max refuses to spy and help bring Hollingsworth down. Nearby, Morgan overhears the exchange and looks none too happy! She comes to Phil and tells him so. He tries to make it up to her by buying her a drink but she instead invites him to a game of darts. While Philip's removing darts from the board, Morgan throws a dart at him and pins the fabric from his shirt to the dartboard, as a warning! Philip yells, "Hey!" He grins as Morgan says she's sure that he has enough money to get the shirt fixed.

Kate arrives to the Brady home with dinner and support for Chelsea. Chelsea says that the infertility isn't the worst part of all this. She admits Daniel hurt her feelings when he took himself off her case and had another doctor oversee her post operative care. Kate points out they can still be friends but Chelsea wonders if she offended him. Kate's sure that's not true and asks if she thought her and Daniel could be more than just friends. Nick arrives and offers to take Chelsea out in Uncle Mickey's boat, to the Horton cabin. Chelsea grins. Nick asks her to go out in the backyard and jump into Bo and Hope's hammock, but Chelsea shrugs. She tells him she's still tired and wants to rest, and when he kisses her goodbye, she moves and he kisses her face, not her lips. After he leaves, she calls Daniel.

Ava's guard wants Martino to leave, but Martino has a court order that says he's allowed to be there. Martino is upset that Ava is tied to the bed, but Kayla tells him it's necessary and she wants to know why Dr. Nusbaum was on Ava's case, considering the drugs he gave her made her unstable. Martino has no idea what she's getting at and promises that Dr. Nusbaum would never do anything to harm Ava. Kayla's positive that this is not true. The pills were given, knowing that Ava would lose her mind. Martino sits with Ava and comforts her as she comes down from the medication. He promises to find out why her doctor was giving her the wrong medication. Ava cries that all this time, there was nothing wrong with her. He tells her she can blame Patch for this - he does! Kayla asks him to leave and then tells Ava she'll feel better once the drugs are out of her system.

Outside the room, Martino makes a call as Steve watches from the doorway. "It's not a game show, you have no choice. Just get it done." He looks at Steve.

Nick arrives at the pub and tells Max and Morgan what happened with Chelsea. He spills his beer and storms out, and Morgan follows him with his books that he has left behind.

Stephanie arrives to visit Chelsea and hears about what happened with Nick. Stephanie asks if she's considering breaking off their relationship but Chelsea can't make a decision yet. They discuss Steph and Max and Chelsea is happy for her and remembers she used to feel that way for Nick until…"You met Daniel," finishes Stephanie. Chelsea doesn't think Daniel's interested in her but Stephanie isn't so sure.

After Stephanie leaves, Daniel arrives. He tells her he's making one last house-call before he leaves Salem. She tells him Bo and Hope are resting and comments that he seems to run away from establishing roots anywhere. "What kind of life is that?" She wants to know and lets him know that he's thought of in the highest regard. When he asks what she thinks, she says, "Do you even have to ask?" An uncomfortable silence ensues and Daniel has to go. He heads toward the door but turns around and takes Chelsea in his arms and kisses her passionately!

Kate arrives at the pub, where she meets Martino. He hugs her and tells her she hasn't changed a bit. She calls him Marty and he remembers that she's the only woman who ever called him that. He asks her to dinner later and promises it's just a couple of friends catching up. Kate agrees to it and admits she had a horrible experience earlier, when she stumbled upon a murder scene. Martino acts surprised and asks what she knows about it. Kate knows nothing at all and Martino says that kind of stuff gives him the creeps. Kate forgot how squeamish he is. Martino chuckles and they reminisce about their past. Kate has to leave, so Martino walks Kate to her car.

At the pub, Max finds Nick's books left behind and leafs through the pages! Stephanie and Kayla arrive and notice Max working on Nick's notes. Max tells them he's just helping out his friend. Kayla comments that it all looks foreign to her.

He has no other family and begs Burke not to take him away from them. Sami weeps as she listens and Mr. Burke promises they'll hear from him soon. He leaves and Sami tells EJ he did great.
