At the park, Sami tells Kate she needs her to keep an eye on Gabi and the boys while she's out of town and to keep them from talking.

Kate muses it's exactly how she ended up married to Stefano. Sami is aggravated. Kate agrees to watch out for Gabi and the boys, but thinks Sami's not going anywhere.
At the DiMera mansion, EJ's man gives him a packet containing the evidence they found. Stefano appears immediately afterward and alludes to EJ and Sami having relationship issues. EJ tells Stefano it's not his business. Stefano muses that there must be a way to make her see how foolish she's being; some leverage. EJ says he won't blackmail Samantha into marrying him. He gets a call about the jet and tells the person his fiancee is not authorized to take it anywhere. Stefano muses, "It's a start." Later, Sami tells EJ she has to go to the agency in Chicago. He wonders why she didn't mention it to him. EJ holds the evidence up and says it's the proof she was involved in Nick's murder. He complains they were very sloppy. She wants to destroy the evidence. He says they could do that... She tells him she has to go. He tells her the jet isn't going anywhere. Sami gets angry and they start arguing about trust. He's unhappy about her using him to 'sweep up' while she's keeping him at bay. She tries to placate him, but he snaps, "Do you want to marry me, or not?" She tries to defer the conversation, but he says she's not going anywhere.

Abby joins them and invites Jordan to get together sometime. Later, Kate greets Lucas, who tells her he met Jordan. "She is beautiful." He wonders if Kate's man dug up any dirt on her. Kate mentions information coming in today from Birmingham. Lucas sneers that it's the same place Jordan's from - what a coincidence. Kate says if it turns out she's just private, she'll back off. Lucas doesn't think she'll let Jordan and Rafe walk into the sunset. He thinks Kate will drive Jordan away so she can pick up the pieces. Kate says it's not about her, it's about Jordan or whoever she is.
