Arianne Zuker (Matthew Mitchell)
Birthday: June 3 1974
Nicole arrives with Dr. Baker, at the hospital and the doctor tells him he may not remember much of anything. She calls EJ and leaves a message and calls Mary to explain she’ll be home soon. She goes to see Dr. Baker and tells him he had an accident. "Accident? You tried to kill me, witch," he says.
EJ calls Dr. Baker and asks him to drop over to the mansion once his shift is up, which is approximately in three minutes. Nicole comes upon him and is rankled to find EJ has invited the doctor over. She questions him, but he reminds her he doesn’t need to clear everything through her. Nicole calls him a liar for telling her he called off the investigation until Stefano gets home. EJ admits he doesn’t know when that is. Stefano’s missing! Nicole is puzzled, but doesn’t appear to care, and EJ notices. He comments on it and yells that Stefano’s not answering his cell phone or emails and he’s very concerned. With the current situation, it’s even more unusual. Nicole realizes he assumes Baker had something to do with this and EJ plans to grill the doctor, who he calls a low-life, until there’s no stone unturned. Nicole starts to worry!
Nicole gets the door and Dr. Baker arrives. EJ sends Nicole upstairs and Nicole tries to stay with the men, but EJ won’t have it. She spies on them from the foyer, while EJ confronts Dr. Baker. Nicole starts to cry, from the foyer, as EJ blames Dr. Baker for Stefano’s disappearance. Dr. Baker has nothing to do with this but knows somebody who could be involved. "The Kiriakis’." EJ takes a call from Victor, who tells him to meet him at the pier, behind the third warehouse. EJ tells Nicole and Dr. Baker to stay put. He leaves and Nicole begs Dr. Baker to leave town. He tells her to relax and Nicole tells him not to think he’s got the upper hand. His calm demeanor upsets Nicole, who thinks they’ll kill him if they find out the truth. Nicole asks him to follow her. She’ll show him the answer to all his problems. She heads upstairs with him, and he asks for $50,000. She can’t give him that much and during the argument, Dr. Baker falls down the stairs.
Nicole sits at Java Café and remembers her conversation with Dr. Baker. She sighs when she finds he has left his keys at the café. Rafe and Sami arrive at Java and they agree that while she likes to talk, he likes to drive her crazy. They kiss and Sami thanks him for agreeing to spend the day with her and her kids. They hug and kiss, but are interrupted by Nicole, who slings a few insults. Rafe tells her to take a hike and Sami agrees, but Nicole rants about how she interrupted her wedding. Sami wonders why Nicole’s in such a bad mood, since she just got married. She wonders if EJ clued into her schemes. Nicole says EJ reminds her all the time that he’s lucky not to be involved with a shallow air-head such as Sami. Rafe and Sami have had enough and move away, but Nicole follows Rafe. "I’m not through with you, yet." She wonders if he found what he was looking for when he was on his tour of the manse. "Yeah, I sure did," he says, smiling wide.
Sami waits for Rafe and sees Sydney. She asks Marco if she can talk to her and he agrees. Sami takes her out of her stroller and holds her.
Nicole asks why Sami asked him to break into her home, but he says he was spying of his own accord. Nicole sees Sami holding Sydney, but she doesn’t want her holding her. Nicole rants to Marco that he shouldn’t be allowing people to hold her kid. She tells Sami to stay away from Sydney and out of her life.
Outside the café, Dr. Baker arrives and Nicole panics. She starts yelling, "I forgot my keys!" Sami shakes her head and tells Nicole to stop yelling. They’ll find them. Dr. Baker gets the hint and leaves and Nicole says she must have left them at home. She leaves and Sami asks Rafe how her life got so caught up with Nicole’s. Rafe understands now, why she doesn’t want her kid around her.
Outside the café, Nicole bumps into Dr. Baker and gives Baker his keys and tells him that was a close call. Too close. Baker says, "If you act as though something’s wrong, people will pick up on it." Nicole thinks him staying in Salem raises suspicions, but he’s not going anywhere. If they keep their mouths shut, they’ve nothing to worry about, says Dr. Baker, but Nicole doubts that. She reminds him of Stefano’s investigation and Dr. Baker tells her it’s her job to stop the investigation. He calls himself one of the good guys and they go around and around about this until Dr. Baker tells her to relax and leaves. Nicole cries to Sydney that the truth will come out and when it does, she’ll never let anyone take her away from her. She’ll have to take care of this herself.
Back inside the café, Sami and the kids watch Rafe do magic tricks and Arianna arrives, and isn’t happy to see Sami or to be introduced to her, but she tries to be nice by saying Sami looks like a good mother. She asks to talk to Rafe alone, and once they’re alone, Arianna tells him, "You can’t be with that woman. Are you out of your mind?" She leaves and Rafe invites Sami on a date.
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.
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!
Nicole and EJ are in bed making out. EJ tells Nicole he loves her, but when he looks at her, he sees Sami. EJ is shaken by this and Nicole asks why he went pale. He says it’s nothing and smiles, but Nicole worries. EJ tells her to let it go. It’s none of her business and just because they’re married, private thoughts don’t need to always be shared. He blasts her for turning it into an argument, but she wasn’t! When Masi calls, Nicole leaves the room and Masi says he’s about to finish the job his father hired him to do. EJ’s phone breaks up. He tells Masi they’re not taking any more steps just yet. Masi can’t hear him and knows he can pull this job off this time. The phone continues to crackle when EJ yells, "Whatever you have planned, stop it." Masi doesn’t hear.
Nicole takes Sydney downstairs and plays with her and fantasizes about her future. Mary finds her and Nicole thought EJ gave her the night off. Mary says her fishing charter was cancelled. Cook will be unhappy. No fish for breakfast tomorrow! Mary heard the wedding was beautiful and offers to feed Sydney and put her back to bed.
Nicole gets back to bed and EJ starts kissing her. They resume lovemaking. EJ takes a call again and has to take care of something. Nicole removes her robe and they start kissing again.
Back at the mansion, Nicole and EJ try to bask in the afterglow of lovemaking, but Nicole becomes sullen when EJ refuses to tell her what he and his father are into. EJ says she knows he doesn’t talk business with her and reminds her he fell for her because she’s independent. "No guy’s going to tell you what to do," he says. Nicole wonders what that’s got to do with her needing a bodyguard but EJ has to keep her in the dark and if she can’t accept it, their marriage will fail. Nicole doesn’t like the sound of that, but EJ says when he confronted her with her work with teenagers, she told him she didn’t have to report to him. Nicole thinks that’s different. Her volunteering doesn’t affect him, but his business affects their family. EJ shuts down and tells her their conversation is over. He leaves to check email and Nicole thinks Sami’s distracting him.
Nicole makes a call to Dr. Baker, and worries the truth can come out. He should leave town before it’s too late.
Meanwhile, downstairs, EJ stares at Stefano’s portrait with champagne and tells him nobody will be doing anything about Philip yet. EJ gets an email from Stefano about Dr. Baker and realizes his instincts about the doctor were right!
EJ calls Nicole from outside, and tells her Stefano went away for a few days, but nobody is to know. She tells him that’s fine. He’ll return home, he says, after his errands. She hangs up and holds Sydney, then flashes back to her last meeting with Mia. Nicole considers that one problem, solved!
