Hope finds Melanie at work at the hospital and asks if she knows where Ralph Farrows, head of security, is. Melanie doesn’t know him, nor does she care. She’s busy. She mentions something about the new nurse tending to Philip, and Hope panics. "What new nurse?" Hope runs into Philip’s room, with her gun, just as the nurse is smothering Philip. The nurse backs away from Philip, but claims to simply be doing her job! Melanie runs to Philip and screams. He isn’t breathing! She starts CPR and Philip comes to. "You enjoying yourself? Any excuse to kiss me," he says, and Melanie gasps! She was giving him the breath of life, she says. Dr. Baker rushes in.


At the pier, Kate tells Chloe she risked her life to save hers, showing a selfless side, but then showed herself to be the selfish witch she has always been. She accuses Chloe of having no morals or values, causing Chloe to ask what’s going on. "I’ve never seen you like this," says a confused Chloe, who asks if she’d like to go have coffee somewhere and talk. She asks if it’s about the taping schedule for the show, but Kate tells her it’s not that, and yells that Chloe’s best quality is lying. Kate says there’s no use in denying it. Daniel confirmed. Chloe starts to cry and Kate wonders why she married Lucas. Chloe loves him and begs her not to tell Lucas. She won’t, because she couldn’t bear to hurt him. He could fall off the wagon again. Chloe is thankful, and Kate says she’s no longer the host of the TV Show. "Consider yourself fired," she yells, as Lucas comes upon them. "Whoa, wait a minute, you can’t fire Chloe," Lucas shouts, perplexed. Kate says she did, and invites Chloe to tell him why! Chloe admits she didn’t want the job in the first place because of the Vancouver job and she lies that she and Kate ran some tests and found out she wasn’t a good candidate. Kate agrees. Chloe was stiff as a board and insincere! Chloe’s happy that she can focus on her career, Ali and Lucas. Kate comments that her career always comes first! Lucas wonders why she’s acting like this. What changed? Kate says Chloe was late and didn’t work hard. Chloe agrees. She wasn’t committed. Kate leaves to find a replacement, but Lucas is still not convinced something else is going on. Chloe convinces him otherwise and they snuggle on the bench. Lucas asks her to wait for him at the pub. He has some business to take care of. She meanders away while Lucas calls Kate and leaves a message for her to call him back with the truth!


EJ investigates Dr. Baker over the phone and is interrupted by Nicole, who asks why he’s investigating Baker. She wants to know why, but he refuses to tell her. Nicole snatches a paper from EJ’s hands and gasps. She reads he was a gambler. She demands to know more, but EJ comments on the beautiful day and tells her to go for a walk. Finally, he admits Stefano’s investigating the doctor, but EJ doesn’t know why. Nicole reminds EJ she fired the doctor and finds the investigation pointless but EJ doesn’t care. It’s Stefano’s business. EJ wonders why Nicole fired the doctor, and Nicole stammers. She knew EJ didn’t like him. Since he’s out of their lives, why bother to continue the investigation, she says. EJ says, "Why indeed?" he wonders why she’d suggest cancelling the inquiry. She goes on and on about this and EJ agrees, it’s probably not worth investigating. He finally agrees to cancel the investigation for now, but if Stefano wants the investigation re-opened, upon his return, that’ll be his decision. When the baby cries, EJ ushers Nicole out of the great room and wonders why Nicole’s so determined to stop the investigation.

In the foyer, Nicole calls Dr. Baker and tells him to meet her. She calls for Marco and leaves.

Back inside the great room, EJ takes a call and screams bloody murder at Masi, for trying to kill Philip in his hospital room. He takes a look at Baker’s file again.


Stephanie arrives home to find Chelsea crying on the sofa. She’s been so busy preparing to leave that she hasn’t had time to let things sink in. Stephanie comforts her. She’ll be in London soon, to help her. Chelsea knows, but is also upset that she’ll miss all of her friends. They wonder how they’ll survive and Stephanie suggests webcams! The phone rings and Stephanie picks up to find Melanie on the phone, who explains the night’s events. Stephanie runs out of the apartment with Chelsea on her heels.


Hope tells Philip that they’ve not yet found the identity of the woman who stole a nurse’s identity, but Philip doesn’t care. He knows it’s the DiMera’s. Hope doesn’t want him going after the DiMera’s and lets him know there’s going to be a list of names of those who are allowed into his room. After she leaves, Philip gets out of bed as Melanie walks in. He almost falls and she catches him, and tries to get him back to bed. Stephanie walks in and Melanie lets her know there’s nothing untoward going on. She explains what happened and Stephanie is thankful and upset by the news. Philip didn’t want her to know, he admits, and asks her not to feel guilty. She gets an idea and leaves. Melanie arrives later and Philip tells her he’s feeling fine.


Chelsea meets Hope outside Philip’s room. Hope says they haven’t found out the nurse's identity, but Bo found an envelope of money and is headed to Chicago. Chelsea bursts out, "No!" She won’t get to say goodbye. She has to leave for London tonight. Hope thinks they can get Bo to hurry back. Chelsea thanks Hope for all she has done for her, especially after all she has done to her. Hope loves her and Chelsea credits Hope with being the person she has become and they hug. Saying goodbye to her is the hardest thing she’s ever had to do, Chelsea admits. Hope says she’ll miss her and she has grown into such a beautiful person. "You are my daughter, you know that." Chelsea tells Hope she loves her.


Nicole arrives at Java Café and quietly lets Dr. Baker know that her guard Marco is watching them, so this has to be a surprise meeting. Nicole threatens him that if he wants to live, he had better leave town! She lets him know about the investigation, saying she convinced EJ to kill it for a few days. Dr. Baker can’t leave town. He needs this job!


Stephanie arrives at the DiMera mansion and EJ opens the door. She yells, "It stops now, do you hear me?" EJ acts surprised that there was a second attempt on Philip’s life, but Stephanie knows better and begs him to leave Philip alone. EJ shows her the door and later, makes a call to Stefano, saying they’ve tried to deliver the package again but failed. He asks him to start returning some of his calls.
