At Salem PD, Sami finds Rafe on the phone discussing his theory about the woman in Morocco being a set up. Sami tells him he’s right. Stefano is up to something. Stefano finds Kate flashing back to being threatened by Madeline. They discuss the threat and Stefano makes a call to Madeline, saying he’ll handle it. Rafe says Stefano told him EJ doesn’t trust Sami to raise their children. Sami doesn’t believe Stefano. She doesn’t think Rafe’s exactly agent objective. They argue and Rafe says EJ wants to be with her. She must see it. Sami asks how he knew. "Did you see…" she starts to say but stops herself and says she cares for EJ as the father of her children and was on her way to confront EJ when she found him. She’s tired of people budding into her life. Rafe tells her to be honest with herself. Sami doesn’t have feelings for EJ, she says and flashes back to the kiss and tells Rafe she’s not stupid and knows it’s nuts to move into the DiMera mansion. She can’t let Kate turn Will against her. Rafe takes a call and tells the caller he’ll be on the next flight out. He hangs up and tells Sami he’s going away. He asks her to hold off on her decision until he returns – whenever that is. Sami turns him down. She’s off to see EJ. "Bon Voyage," she says and slams the door behind her. Rafe cryptically says he can’t tell her or she’ll just tell EJ. Once she’s gone, Rafe tells a cop this time he’s off to see Anna face to face.
