    Bring It On!

    Tuesday, June 23 2009

    Nicole weeps at Grace’s grave, saying that she’d do anything to bring her back, as Rafe approaches. Nicole tries to excuse herself, but Rafe asks what she’s doing there. Nicole tearfully answers that she’s there to pay her respects. Rafe asks what she meant by saying that she would do anything to bring Grace back, and Nicole cries that it’s not fair Grace was cheated out of life. Rafe asks why she’s so heartbroken if she had no real connection to Grace, but Nicole reminds Rafe that Sydney will never get to know her sister, Grace. Rafe suggests that Nicole focuses on the fact that she still has her daughter and they both agree that life is fragile. Nicole admits that she’s concerned for Sami and that even though they will never be friends, she admits that Sami is a great mother, and Johnny is proof of that. She sympathizes with Sami, saying that she must be in hell for what is going on with Johnny. Rafe asks her talk to EJ about the custody injunction. Arianna walks by as Nicole leaves, and once again Rafe asks Nicole to at least think about it. Arianna listens intently as Rafe painfully recalls memories with Grace. He says that even though he couldn’t protect Grace, he will be there for Sami, to honor her memory. Later on, Rafe visits another grave with the name Emily Hudson on it, and as he touches the gravestone, he says he’s sorry.

    Appetizers To Die For!

    Monday, June 22 2009

    At the church, EJ gives Sami the court order and Sami realizes EJ’s taking Johnny from her. He calls it an eye for an eye and blames her for this. Will comes upon them and asks if this is true. "Are you really taking my brother from my family?" Sami asks EJ not to do this. He’ll be punishing the family, not just her. Will thanks EJ when he says it’s fine for him to visit Johnny at his place. Sami is surprised that Will isn’t siding with her but Will explains that Rafe and Sami were in the wrong for lying to EJ this whole time. He thinks EJ has a right to take Johnny from her!


    In the vestibule, Father Matt is grateful that the nuns from the Holy Cross made it to the funeral. When Sister Agnes arrives, Nicole panics. Sister Agnes recognizes her! Father Matt introduces them and the sister says she didn’t come alone. Sister Claire drove her there, though Sister Theresa has been reassigned to a new convent. Nicole is relieved to find Theresa left Salem a few days ago. Will stomps out of the church, and Nicole calls after him. "Will, what is it?"

    Inside the church, EJ and Sami argue about EJ taking custody of Johnny. Sami threatens to tell all about what he did to the mayor and to Stephanie. Nicole arrives asking what’s going on and Sami blames her for EJ’s custody order. EJ stands up for Nicole and tells Sami to get Johnny to his place in one hour. Father Matt interrupts and Rafe and Sami leave while Father Matt tells EJ that God commands that we all forgive. EJ thinks he should tell that to Samantha, who played God. "She’s the one who is going to regret it."

    Nicole goes to Sami in the vestibule and tells her she had nothing to do with this custody arrangement but Sami thinks she looks guilty and asks what she has done! Nicole says what she did was unconscionable. Sami retorts, "I thought you would understand. Now, EJ will always be thinking of us!"

    Nicole goes back into the church and asks EJ if they can take the photo of Grace, and breaks down, saying, "This is all wrong!" EJ hugs her. She blames herself and tells him to go home. She cries for Grace.

    Sami paces the townhouse after talking to her father and says her family has told her she has no choice but to give up Johnny. She cries, saying she’s not sure she can handle this. She has to take Johnny alone, she says, in order to explain to him what’s going on. Rafe assures her this isn’t over. They’ll fight and win this custody case. Rafe leaves and later, Lucas arrives at Sami’s townhouse. He apologizes for EJ taking Johnny away, hoping she’ll fight it and wants to help her overturn this. Sami smiles and will take him up on that. Lucas makes sure she knows she can always count on him and they hug. He leaves and Johnny runs into her arms, asking to play. Sami says she’d love to but there’s no time. They’re going to daddy’s house.

    Nicole goes to Grace’s gravesite and tells her how perfect and beautiful she was. Nicole wonders if she caused all of this. "Or maybe it was just your time." She cries that Grace leaving this world will make her life better, knowing EJ will never forgive Sami for what she has done. Nicole cries to God to forgive her and rocks while she sobs. Rafe comes upon her crying.

    The Most Interesting Sister!

    Friday, June 19 2009

    EJ and Nicole arrive at the church. In the vestibule, EJ mumbles he doesn’t even remember what Grace looks like as he holds the photo of Grace that he finds on the casket.

    By the casket, Father Matt tells Rafe that God’s plans can be bewildering, but it only makes things worse. Rafe blames God for taking Grace from him.
    Arianna and Brady discuss Sami and Rafe and the funeral today. Brady worries about Sami, but Arianna knows she has family support. She’s more concerned about Rafe and all the lies he has told for Sami.

    Back in the vestibule, EJ makes a move toward Sami, when she arrives, but Roman and Bo stop him. Mia and Hope stand by as EJ tells Sami that he wouldn’t dream of disrespecting his daughter’s service. It wasn’t him who made her life a lie. Will comes in after Mia and makes a snide remark about EJ being Grace’s father. Bo asks him to support his mother today. Everyone goes inside the church but EJ and Nicole, who urges EJ to take this time to grieve, before taking revenge. EJ looks inside and sees Mia and asks Nicole who she is. Nicole stumbles over her words as she explains she thinks Mia babysat for Grace. EJ is angered that a stranger knew his kid more than he.

    Inside the church, Will tells Mia that he does understand Sami’s reasoning for keeping Grace from EJ. He knows she would do what she could to stop her children from growing up in that house.

    Nicole goes inside while EJ makes a call, giving orders to somebody to drop the papers off, soon. Stephanie interrupts EJ and tells him what she thinks of him, which isn’t much. She feels for Sami, who lost a child but doesn’t think EJ deserves children. EJ seethes and tells her she’s lucky to be alive, so Stephanie smacks him across the face and points at him, telling him not to dare threaten her again. Philip walks in just after the slap and EJ tells her to exercise a little control, saying he’s sure Philip will side with him on this one. EJ leaves and Stephanie apologizes to Philip. She’s got nothing to apologize for, he says, knowing full well that EJ should be in jail. They enter the church.

    Back inside the church, Mia is unhappy for Sami. Nicole sits behind her and stops Mia from apologizing for being there. "You should be here for Grace." Caroline arrives while Stephanie goes to Sami to give her condolences. Sami knows she didn’t have to be there, considering her recent ordeal with Owen. Caroline goes to Sami and hopes Will has decided to sit with her. He hasn’t. Sami blurts out that she’s sick of the lies. Brady arrives with Arianna. When Arianna takes a seat, Brady tells Nicole she should know how Sami feels. She should have had a service for her lost child. Roman tells EJ if he hurts one more member of his family, he’ll turn in his badge and deal with EJ the way EJ deals with others. "No mercy." EJ takes out the custody papers from his pocket and thinks back to Stephanie’s rant.

    Nearby, Arianna takes Rafe’s arm and says she knows this brings back a lot of memories. She admits she was wrong to tell him he was in the wrong for helping Sami.

    Near the casket, Brady hugs Sami. Brady explains he understands completely, why she lied about Grace. He loves that about her, he admits. Meanwhile, Nicole tells Grace she was the first one to hold her and will never forget her.

    Bo and Hope hug Sami and offer to talk to her anytime. Sami was worried they’d be angry at her but they could never stay angry at her, they confess. Father Matt starts the somber ceremony. Caroline does a reading and then Will tells a cute story about Grace, but has a difficult time finishing it, so Father Matt tells him he has done a good job, and Will takes a seat. When Father Matt asks if anyone else has any memories to share, EJ gets up. "I don’t have any memories to share but I do want to say something," he starts, causing Nicole, and the others to cringe. He goes up to the podium and says his only reason for getting up daily, is to ensure his children are safe. He discusses children and how one loves them before they see, hear or meet them. He says to Sami and Rafe, "I trust you’ll take some comfort in your memories of my daughter," reminding them they’ll always share memories of Grace, while he has nothing. He takes one last silent look around and takes a seat. Mia decides that though she has nothing to say, she’d like to sing. She starts singing "Amazing Grace," and Caroline joins her in song, while Sami chokes back tears. Most of the mourners get up to sing while Sami cries on Rafe’s shoulder. Father Matt gives a blessing and the Eucharist is given out. Later, roses are placed in a basket on top of the casket by everyone. Mia has to go back to work and gives Will a hug before she leaves. Sami and Rafe place a rose on the casket and Rafe tells Grace they’ll always love her. EJ and Nicole go to the casket and EJ says she’ll never be forgotten. Ever. Father Matt says another prayer and it’s time for the final farewell. Stephanie hugs Sami once more and then goes to EJ and blasts him for making Sami feel even worse than she already does. She tells Nicole to remember the blood on his hands next time he holds Sydney. EJ tells Philip to control his woman better.

    Arianna goes to Rafe, and they discuss the support Sami has. Rafe thinks it was a mistake to let EJ find out the truth at all. Arianna asks him not to take all of this on himself in order to protect Sami, but she knows this falls on deaf ears.

    Nearby, EJ is angered that Sami named Grace after Rafe. Roman tells Sami she’s strong, just like her mother, and they hug. Hope hugs Sami and then Bo, who tells her to call if she needs anything. The guests file out and all that is left is Sami and Rafe and EJ and Nicole.

    Father Matt tells Nicole he’s glad the nuns from The Convent of the Holy Cross have arrived to see Sami. Their car broke down, he admits, and Nicole goes pale. Meanwhile, EJ hands Sami a court order. "He’s taking Johnny from me," she says. EJ tells her, "Just like you took my daughter from me. An eye for an eye, Sami."

    How Do You Unquit A Job?

    Thursday, June 18 2009

    At home, Rafe tries to get Sami to eat. She urges him to say it out loud - she hasn't eaten since she died - since Grace died! Rafe says if she's going to make it through the service, she has to take care of herself. Rafe asks if she wants him to tell EJ that the day will be hard enough without him being there. Sami says he has every right to be there - she can't tell him not to go. Rafe says EJ doesn’t need to be there, but Sami says there is nothing they can do to make the day easier - they just have to get through it! Rafe says he keeps waiting for Grace to cry. Sami nods and puts her head on his shoulder. Roman comes to the door and rushes to embrace Sami, who reminds him that he's mad at her. He says not today. When Sami leaves the room, Rafe tells Roman he's worried about EJ today! Roman says that EJ is not going to bother Sami! Sami comes back out and says Johnny is asking where Grace is. Rafe hugs her, and she sends him on an errand. Sami asks her dad not to be angry at Rafe. Roman just doesn't understand why she didn't tell him. She says she doesn't have faith in the legal system, and warns that EJ is going to come after her.

    Alone in the church, Rafe breaks down in tears. The minister comes in and asks if he's okay. He says he was once an angry guy, then says maybe he shouldn't be here - he doesn't know if he can ever forgive God for letting Grace die!

    Owen Has Escaped!

    Monday, June 15 2009

    Rafe goes to Arianna at the pub and lets her in on the truth about Grace’s maternity. Arianna is surprised and more so when he tells her EJ DiMera’s the father. Arianna has heard all about the DiMera’s and says she’d have kept the truth from EJ, too! Arianna thinks Rafe’s the one with the problem, not Sami. This situation reminds him of the situation in his past. She doesn’t want to be hard on him after Grace’s death, but Arianna thinks when he’s done grieving, he’ll see things her way. "Whatever happens, don’t let this be like Emily."

    Sami tells Will she went into the witness protection program pregnant and she is Grace’s mother. She gave birth to her. Will questions why she’d keep it a secret. Later, Sami has told Will the whole story. He’s angry when he hears the father is EJ. Sami says Stefano would have taken Grace from them. She didn’t want another innocent child to be put in the same situation as Johnny. Sami admits she wasn’t going to tell EJ the truth, but after Grace passed, she told EJ. Will considers the timing to be bad and doesn’t think Sami would have ever told him the truth. Sami ponders that and is honest. She may never have told anybody this secret- ever, in order to protect her. She apologizes. This angers Will and thinks Lucas will go crazy when he finds out. Sami sighs. "He already knows…" Will is angry that both of his parents have known the whole time. Will grabs the car keys and heads to the door. Sami takes the keys, not wanting him to drive angry. Will storms out of the townhouse, only to bump into Rafe, who asks him to stay and talk. Will refuses to stay and will return for his things, later. Rafe comforts Sami and she realizes she’s got to tell her family the truth. Rafe will be at her side, he promises. Sami thanks him for being so wonderful to them. Rafe says he has done everything because he fell in love with her! Rafe worries he’s a reminder of what Sami lost and that she won’t want him around, but she says it’s a good thing. She looks at Rafe and remembers all the sacrifices he has made for them. "I love you so much," Sami says, before jumping into his arms.
