Chelsea and Melanie get into a catfight in the pub, while outside the pub, Philip takes a business call. A patron tells a barmaid that this is better than pay–per-view, while Melanie and Chelsea continue to go at it. Philip notices banging inside the pub and rushes inside, breaking up the fight. Melanie goes after Chelsea again, but Chelsea runs off. Outside, Stephanie sees her running away and calls her name, but Chelsea doesn’t turn around. Inside, Melanie tells Philip, "Somebody needed to put that dumb girl in her place." Philip tells her to watch her mouth but Melanie tells him to save his CEO crap for somebody that cares!"
An allergenic Hilda shows up at the safe house, unhappy to have to babysit Sami, who is asleep. Hilda’s allergies are acting up and once Rafe leaves she notices Sami’s ever-growing belly and wonders what Rafe’s feeding her. Outside, Rafe looks at a photo of EJ, while back inside, Hilda is upset to find that she purchased the nighttime formula for allergies. She figures it won’t make her sleepy and guzzles half the bottle, before commenting, “Nummers!” She turns on the game and soon passes out. Sami wakes up and is surprised to see 'Hilda the Hun'. She notices the empty allergy bottle and blasts a sleeping Hilda. “You know he’s going to blame me for this!” She looks outside and decides to go for a walk.
EJ continues to call Nicole’s cell phone, and is concerned when she doesn’t pick up. Mary, the maid, tells EJ that Roman has called. Marlena was attacked by Marino’s killer, and Hope is babysitting Johnny at the park. He runs off.
Nicole ignores EJ’s calls and sobs about their loss. Brady comforts her and she sobs that this was supposed to be different this time for EJ. She asks Brady to take her home.
Hope runs into a rested looking Julie, who says she has been through five continents and doesn’t feel rested. Hope lets her know that she’s taking care of Johnny DiMera, after Marlena was attacked by Marino’s killer, while Johnny was at her townhouse. They discuss Nick and Julie says she knew from the moment she saw Melanie that she’d be trouble. She thinks Melanie drove him to killing Trent. Hope disagrees.
Chelsea arrives at Cheatin’ Heart and cries to Max that Melanie’s right. She’s the reason Nick snapped and killed Max’s father. Max doesn’t buy any of this, but Chelsea reminds him of her past mistakes. Max tells her not to let Melanie ruin her confidence and reminds her of all the good work she does at the hospital. Chelsea needs to make amends with Nick, but Max says Nick is responsible for his own actions, not her. The guy has been out of control for months. He knows that while not everything is inherited, Nick’s mother was also out of control. “You are not responsible, so accept it and move on,” he tells her. Chelsea starts to feel better and has to leave. Before she does, Max says he’s happy to hear she’s recovering, and reminds her he’s always there for her.
Philip goes outside and tells Stephanie about Chelsea’s fight with Melanie. Stephanie wishes she had been there sooner. She’d have pummeled Melanie. Philip finds that scary, yet sexy! She tells him she came to give him the file for the Green Initiative for the Riverfront and asks who he’s hiring for the administrative job. She’s unhappy to hear it’s Melanie, but Philip says Melanie’s tech savvy.
Back inside the pub, a patron sees Melanie and calls her a real spitfire! Melanie thinks to herself that she can get money off of the silver fox, as she calls him. She charms Bob, after he introduces himself and after a while, she tells him she’s got to get going.
Outside the pub, Philip thinks Melanie would be a good administrative assistant, but she’s too much of a troublemaker to bother with. Melanie comes out of the pub and overhears this. She tells Philip to shove his job!
EJ arrives at the park and is thankful Johnny is with Hope. Hope asks EJ if Stefano had anything to do with hiring the man who killed Marino but EJ doesn’t believe he did. Nearby, Rafe listens in on the entire conversation. EJ is upset; knowing that a member of his family could be next, considering Marlena was attacked. EJ’s taking his son home and putting him under lock and key and suggests she tell Lucas to do the same. He leaves and Julie says she doesn’t believe that EJ’s being honest. They believe EJ’s probably happy to have Sami in witness protection so he can bring Johnny up the way he wants. Julie comments that with Stefano around, the child will be detestable and they move on to wonder if EJ and Sami will get back together. Julie thinks EJ has changed since the twins were born but he’s still pompous.
A blanket-wrapped Nicole and Brady arrive at the DiMera manse. Brady takes care of Nicole, who wants a drink. Brady gets her water. “Booze isn’t going to help you right now. It’s just going to make things worse.” Nicole realizes that. She wasn’t thinking straight and thanks him for all his help. She isn’t sure how she’s going to tell EJ and can’t believe she has lost her baby. Nicole wants to rest and Brady offers to stay with her. She wants to be alone and sobs while she goes up to her room.
Nicole sits on the edge of her bed and holds her stomach. When the maid, Mary enters the room, she yells at her to get the hell out, and then screams, “Get out!” She sobs after Mary runs out of Nicole’s room then gets into bed.
Shortly thereafter, EJ arrives home with Johnny and Mary tells him that Nicole is back and there’s something he needs to know.
Later, a knock comes to Nicole’s room and she tells whoever it is to go away. EJ tells her, “Hi sweetheart, it’s me and Johnny, darling.” He enters her room and tells her Mary said she was crying.
Melanie goes behind the pub and starts to rummage through Bob’s wallet for cash. She’s interrupted by an angry Bob, who wants his wallet back. He grabs her and accuses her of stealing. He wonders how she thought she’d get away with it!
Sami enters the convent nearby and starts to cry. A sister taps her on the shoulder and asks if she’s alright. She’s not and when asked, she admits it has to do with her expecting. She introduces herself as Colleen. Sister Theresa is not there to judge and wants to help, she says. Sami heard there was an orphanage here. Sister Theresa tells her that’s true. Sami asks. “Do you take children now?” They do, but not that often, says Sister Theresa. She’d be happy to help with whatever the situation is and gives Sami a St. Anne medal. Sam is thankful and has a feeling she’ll return.
