Lucas and Sami marry, a surprise at the reception spells trouble for the newlyweds, and EJ informs Steve he's to kill Bo!
Kayla calls security from her room at the inn, while EJ's thugs pound on the door and bust into the room. Steve fights off the men but they overpower them and tie up Kayla while they force Steve into a van. Security shows up and unties Kayla. She yells at him to call Roman Brady.
At St. Luke's, EJ wanders in at the most inopportune moment when Father Kelley awaits anyone in the church to speak now or forever hold their peace. EJ walks up the aisle slowly while everyone strains their necks to see what's going on. Lucas flinches while Sami clutches at her chest. Kate smugly looks on and Roman gets up from where he is seated. Nobody speaks a word! EJ finally takes a seat as the guests whisper around him. Father Kelley tells everyone that he'll take the silence to mean that he can make it official and Lucas and Sami say their vows. Lucas says, "I Lucas take you Samantha to be my wife. I promise to be true to you in good time s and in bad, and in sickness and in heath. I will honor and love you all the Days Of Our Lives." EJ smirks and Kate rolls her eyes. Sami says, "Lucas please accept this ring as a sign of my love and fidelity, in the name of the father the son and the holy spirit. Father Kelley then pronounces the happy couple man and wife. They kiss passionately and Father Kelley announces them as Mr. and Mrs. Lucas and Samantha Roberts. The guests clap and the new Mr. and Mrs. Roberts make their way through family and friends hugs and kisses.
Inside the church, Lucas and Sami get photos taken while Grandpa Shawn and Caroline discuss the farm fresh food that they'll be eating at the reception and Stephanie asks Max for a ride. He has no room for her so she asks him to save a dance for her and goes off to ask Nick for a ride.
Kate sits in the pew behind EJ and asks him why the wedding went off without a hitch. He casually asks her for patience.
Roman gets a call from Kayla, who tells him that two guys attacked her and Steve in her hotel room and took Steve. He tells her he'll be right over and turns to Marlena and Hope to tell them the news. Marlena realizes that's why EJ didn't stop the wedding. He was too busy sending thugs after Steve again!
Once Roman arrives at the inn, he tells Kayla they've got an APB out on Steve and the thugs and Kayla tells him she wants EJ to feel the pain of losing a loved one as she has. She tells Roman to go back to the wedding reception as they can only wait now.
After Roman leaves, a maintenance man arrives to Kayla's room and says the police have given him permission to fix the door. He leaves to go get another drill bit, and Kayla takes his drill and says, "This will do fine!"
Back at the church, Kate asks Lucas if she can come to the reception. She promises good behavior and he accepts. Sami comes into the room and Kate asks her the same question. Sami allows it and Lucas says, "Mrs. Roberts, you're magnanimous!" Kate thanks Sami and Sami jokes, "Would it be okay if I called you Mom now?!" Kate says she thinks it's best if Sami continued to call her Kate instead, and the two laugh. Sami and Lucas leave for Chez Rouge.
Chelsea drives Nick and Stephanie to the reception while the girls joke around about the wedding. Stephanie wants them to ditch the reception and go to a party, but Nick is apprehensive. Stephanie asks Chelsea to open the sun roof and stands through the opening, flailing her arms and yelling, "Whooooo! Say hello to the new Stephanie!" Nick tries to get her to stay in the car and asks Chelsea to slow down but the girls are having too much fun. Police sirens ring out in the distance and Chelsea hits the breaks and screams, "Oh my God, Stephanie!"
At the reception at Chez Rouge, Lucas gets up and shares an old Irish wedding prayer to Sami. "By the power that Christ brought from heaven, mayst thou love me. As the sun follows its course, mayst thou follow me. As light to the eye, as bread to the hungry, as joy to the heart, may thy presence be with me, oh one that I love, till death comes to part us. …" Sami and Lucas share their first dance and Sami tells Lucas that the prayer was lovely. She asks if there are any other surprises in store but he refuses to come clean! Maggie and Will fight over the camera and she asks him to set up the DVD. The guests tinkle their glasses in order for the happy couple to kiss, and they of course do so! Kate appears to be the only one at the reception who isn't happy! She drinks a martini while Billie asks her if she's looking forward to a vacation. Kate says she has her own Irish prayer and recites, "May the road rises up to slap her in the back and the wind always be at her face." Billie asks if she can't just accept defeat for once but she alludes that there is more in store and that the day isn't over yet!
A tied up Steve wakes up in a warehouse where EJ is watching him sleep. EJ tells him that normally he doesn't make house calls. "In this case I'll make exception," he tells him. Steve tries to escape but is tied too tight. He tells EJ if he hurts Kayla, he'll kill him but EJ tells him he can't kill a fly without his permission first. He then shows Steve a map of Tinda Lau and tells him he's going to be looking up an old friend. "What do I do when I find him?" asks Steve. He tells him that Bo's going to make Shawn sign a paper that will make his life difficult, so he's to find Shawn. EJ says, "Your mission, and you will choose to take it, is to kill Bo Brady." Steve refuses but EJ shows him the tarot card and tells him, "Your loyalty is to me, not to your family." Steve repeats, "Kill Bo Brady."
Marlena asks the bride and groom to have a seat in front of the monitor and says they've prepared a surprise for them. Roman arrives and tells Sami he's looking forward to their dance. Roman takes Sami's hand in his and she bawls like a baby while the two dance to an Irish folk song! Behind them, Kate paces.
Once the dance is over, Marlena makes a speech about Sami and Lucas committing themselves to a new green world. She thanks those who have provided something to the eco-friendly wedding and apologizes that Eric (Sami's twin brother) couldn't be here but he had a part of this surprise. Maggie reads a note from Bill Horton telling Lucas and Sami to enjoy their day. She reads an excerpt, "It's where we've been that takes us to where we're going. Love, Dad"
They all watch the monitor as photos from the past are shown of Lucas and Sami. The two flash back to a time when Sami played hopscotch with Lucas when they were young and when Lucas picked Sami up to the prom and a few other montages of their youth. Suddenly, during the montage, the radar photo of EJ and Sami is shown. Roman notices that the license plate is Lexi's and Marlena gasps, "Look at the date. It's the day John was shot!"
Sami jumps up and gasps, "Turn it off." Lucas turns to Kate and asks if she is responsible for this but Kate says she only wishes. She goes on to say that it looks like the luck of the Irish has just run out. Sami tells everyone she can explain and that it's not what it looks like. She admits she didn't want to help EJ. "I just wanted to be with Lucas. I just wanted to be happy." Sami cries and apologizes.
Next on Days Of Our Lives:
Billie tells Chelsea that everyone makes mistakes and that it's okay. "We'll find a way to make this OK."
Hope looks at a map of Tinda Lau and says, "That's where Shawn is." Kayla asks, "And what do you want to bet that's exactly where EJ sent Steve?"
EJ says to Kate, "A life for a life." Kate says, "Lucas' life for a baby."
Sami tells Lucas that there is more to the story. "When I tell you, you're not going to be able to forgive me."
