Gabby gives Shawn a job, Sami and Lucas get a new roommate and Willow finds out she was duped!
On the Island, Shawn comes downstairs in the morning and refuses breakfast from Gabby. He wants to find their own way and work for their room and board. As soon as Claire's fever breaks, they're leaving the island, he shares. Gabby leaves him an open ended invitation to get some food from the kitchen when he, Belle and Claire need it. She goes back to work and Belle runs cheerfully down the stairs with Claire in her arms. She's happy to announce that Claire's fever is down! The two fawn over their little girl and Shawn tells Gabby that they're leaving now that Claire is better. Belle wasn't consulted in this decision and asks Shawn to be realistic. She figures that they need time to relax for a while before trekking off into the unknown. They argue and she ends up putting her foot down. They're staying on the island; she informs him and goes on to tell him, "End of discussion." She asks Shawn why he's so opposed to staying on the island and he admits that Duck reminds him of Victor and how he used to look at him with contempt because he doesn't have a job or prospects. Gabby comes forth and out of the blue, throws Shawn a piece of rope and asks him to tie a sheepshank knot! He does so at wicked speed and throws it back, much to her astonishment! She goes on to ask him a few questions about the engine of a boat and is satisfied with his responses. She offers him free room and board if he will fix her boat and lets him know that she can order parts for the boat if he'll fix it, but it'll take a week to come in from Guam. Shawn is surprised and Belle jumps in and answers that he'll do it! Gabby allows him to work for her on her breaks in the meantime. Duck comes to the bar with a beer in hand and stares Shawn down. Shawn tells Gabby that he'll stay if Duck is okay with it, but when Shawn goes to Duck, he's cranky and doesn't think it's a good idea. Shawn goes to him to let him know that without his consent, he'll leave. Duck tells him, "I'm just the worthless owner. My daughter runs the place. Keep the kid quiet and stay out of my way." He leaves and Gabby tells the two that Duck is a good man and a proud man and has helped many people when the tsunami hit. Belle takes Claire to the kitchen for food and Shawn asks Gabby why she's being so nice to them. She admits that she liked his face, "It's a good face. It's kind." She tells him he looks trustworthy. After the three go up to their room, Duck notices the way that Gabby has been looking at Shawn and he tells her in no uncertain terms that she's wasting her time. "They're a couple and they have a kid." He says, but with a smile, Gabby claims not to have seen a ring on his finger!
Sami and Lucas have coffee with Billie at her apartment while they listen to Billie's rants about Chelsea. Sami sticks up for Chelsea when Billie fears that Chelsea may have set the fire to Bo's place. All eyes are on Chelsea as she walks into the apartment. Chelsea is heartbroken as she declares that Bo thinks she set the fire to his house. Sami and Lucas tell her that Bo is just covering all bases as a cop, but Chelsea feels as though she hasn't anyone to turn to. Billie starts to remind her that she still has her but she cuts her off and lets Billie know that she isn't her mother. She starts to yell at Billie and insults her by calling her a failure an addict and a back-stabber. Lucas and Sami stop her mid sentence and tell her that Billie doesn't deserve that. "She's your mother," Lucas reminds his niece. Sami adds, "She feels bad enough as it is." Chelsea appears drained and admits that she feels awful. She goes to Sami for comfort and receives a hug. Chelsea wants to leave but tells her family that she has no place to go. Tears stream down Billie's cheeks as she begs Chelsea to forgive her but Chelsea looks at her mother with resentment. When Lucas tells her that he and Sami have plenty of room, she agrees to stay with them. Billie is fine with the arrangements and stops Chelsea before she leaves. She reminds her daughter that she has always shown her love and forgiveness even when others turned their back on her. She asks for the same consideration and lets her daughter know that she's not the only one who's hurting. Chelsea listens but doesn't respond. Instead, she turns to Sami and asks if she can leave. Chelsea and Sami take off while Lucas stays behind to comfort Billie.
EJ shows up at the door almost immediately and even though Lucas explains that now isn't a good time, he enters the apartment and tells Billie that although he's sorry about the break in at Bo and Hope's place, he thinks that the home security system will now sell itself! Billie's mouth drops as she realizes he's asking her to give Bo the 'hard sell' now, when Bo is vulnerable. She refuses him and dries her eyes as Lucas asks EJ to give it a rest. EJ thinks it is good business sense, but Lucas tells EJ that Billie is having a hard time with her daughter. He apologizes and after they let him in on what's going on, EJ offers money for Chelsea's attorney fees. Lucas stops EJ mid-sentence and tells him that Billie has family to take care of her. "She doesn't need a thing from you," he explains roughly. EJ thinks Billie needs to decide what she needs to do and tells her the offer still stands. He takes off. After he leaves, Lucas mocks EJ. With an English accent he says, "Don't mind those bodies, Billie, just step over them and sell, sell, sell!"
EJ meets with Sami in the hallway and tells her that time is running out. He wants the results of the amniocentesis.
Lucas comes into the hallway and interrupts the two. He lets Sami know that Billie is going to bed and Sami shares that Chelsea cried herself to sleep. The two kiss and go off to bed.
Steve gets an unwanted visit from Kayla in the state mental hospital. She has questions for him about John and the kidney. He tells her he has nothing to say to her and pounds on the door to demand that someone get her out of there! Kayla apologizes for upsetting him but she tells him she's there to ask for help in figuring out why EJ needed John's kidney. Steve heartlessly tells her that he doesn't know why she's there, considering she turned him in to the cops and put him here! Kayla professes her love for him and wonders if EJ had him take the kidney to Stefano or Tony. Steve has no idea, he says. Kayla tells him that he must know something, because she checked the patient log and EJ paid him a visit just before she did! Steve has to admit that he's impressed. He calls her a bulldog, but she tells him she's just a wife trying to get her husband back. He tells her to forget about EJ Wells. "Walk out the door and never come back," he urges her. She calls him a coward, but Steve tells her he has plenty of fight left in him and will use it to get out of there. They argue and Steve's eyes narrow as Kayla asks him, "What do you think Stephanie will think when she finds out what you've done?" Steve doesn't think she'll tell their daughter but Kayla is defiant and tells him, "Just watch me!" He thinks she's bluffing but she stands her ground. They argue about who is going to tell Stephanie the truth and when, and Kayla tells him she'll try anything to get him to see things her way. "You took the gloves off when you gave up on us and now I'm taking my gloves off," she warns him. He repeats her words and then grabs her. A frightened Kayla calls for the orderly. Once the man opens the door, Steve tells him that he has a knife in Kayla's back. He lures the orderly into the cell and then Steve pushes Kayla into him and locks the two in the cell.
Later, Billie is shocked to see Steve in her apartment!
At the YWCA, Willow is frustrated after searching the entire room for the check that EJ gave her. EJ shows up at the door and she tells him that she knows he took the check back. She wants to know why and reminds him she broke into Bo's house and that deserves pay! EJ tells her that setting fire to their house was not part of the bargain! "I make it a rule not to do any business with psychotic arsonists! I either avoid them or eliminate them. Which is it going to be with you?" he asks. Frightened and confused, she turns away. He rubs her shoulder lasciviously as he makes it clear that they've never met and that if the police come snooping around, she's to keep her mouth shut! Willow bats his hand away and lets him know that the fire was an accident. She confesses that she set up someone else for the fall. He rolls his eyes but admits that he's impressed with her. When EJ tells her he's not paying her, she's staggered and becomes emotional. He tells her he gave her a lesson never to trust anyone and gives her a bit of advice, "Never… ever do anything without getting cash in advance!" Tears well in Willow's eyes as EJ starts out the door while giving her a stern warning never to call him again.
Next on Days Of Our Lives:
