    Days Recap: He's At Peace.

    Monday, May 12 2014
    Family mourns as Nick passes away, and his enemies secretly cheer.


    (NBC Universal Inc.)

    At the Horton Square, Rafe calls in Nick's shooting while Julie holds a bloodied Nick and screams. Nick holds his hand out as if trying to point at someone while EJ, Abby, Gabi, Ben, Rafe, Will, Sonny, Sami, and Kate gawk. Nick falls unconscious. Sami rushes to Allie and she and Lucas try to get Allie to focus on something else. Julie tells Rafe to get back and yells, "All of you hated Nick and one of you did this. He knew it!" Jordan checks Nick's wounds and asks Gabi for a clean cloth from the bag she's clutching. Kate is able to distract Allie. She and Lucas take a walk with her.


    At the Brady's pub, Hope asks Maggie to talk to Nick about being in the midst of the custody case between Will and Gabi. Maggie already tried but he's stubborn and doesn't see that he's done anything wrong. They laugh that they should turn Julie loose on him. Hope takes a call and runs out.

    Hope arrives at the square. Nick's barely hanging on. The EMS arrive and Julie goes with Nick to the hospital. Rafe fills Hope in, saying Nick walked into the square already shot. Nobody heard the shots. Another cop gets contact information from everyone and Rafe and Hope follow the trail. Jordan tells everyone she's surprised Nick's still breathing. She takes a shocked Gabi to the hospital while Ben takes a crying Abigail.

    Kate, Lucas, and Allie arrive outside the pub and Allie's in shock. She wants to see Nick and asks if he's going to die. Lucas doesn't know. She agrees to stay at the pub. They head in and Lucas takes Allie to Caroline. Kate nonchalantly tells Maggie Nick was shot. Maggie rushes to the hospital. Lucas returns and Kate hopes Nick's dead. Lucas deletes his conversation with Nick and they run to the hospital. Kate hopes there's something to celebrate.

    Will and Sonny arrive at the hospital. Julie says Nick just went into surgery. She's beside herself. Abby and Ben arrive. Julie has to call Melissa but can't. She accuses everyone of hating Nick again and goes to sign forms. Gabi arrives late. She says she was in the emergency room. Julie rushes to her, worried. She asks who hated Nick enough to do this. Maggie arrives and bawls in Julie's arms. In the community room, Will says Caroline's staying with Ari. Will tells Sonny to get that gun back to Victor's. By the hub, Jordan comforts Gabi. Will and Sonny return and EJ and Sami arrive but hear there's no word. Julie tells Maggie when Nick wakes up, he'll tell her who shot him. Julie points fingers again and Maggie calms her. Rafe, Lucas, and Kate arrive. Rafe comforts Gabi.

    Hope and Rafe find the crime scene at the park. Hope asks Rafe if everyone who was at the square was there when Nick dragged himself there. Hope tells him everyone there is a suspect. They return to the hospital.

    At the parkette, Sami's in a panic, thinking Nick was trying to point the finger at them. EJ grabs her, "Trouble, breathe." This doesn't calm her down. EJ says even if he saw the hitman, he can't connect him to them. She fakes a smile and they head to the hospital.

    Hope and Rafe go back to the square and Hope feels guilty for not talking to Nick sooner.

    Sonny arrives home to Will holding the gun. They agree to get rid of it first thing in the morning. Each confesses they'd do anything for the other.

    Ben takes Abby home. They each apologize to each other for the way they've acted and Ben goes. Abby flashes to Nick calling her EJ DiMera's w**** and to Nick dying.

    At the hospital, a doctor arrives and tells everyone Nick died ten minutes ago. Julie, Maggie, Gabi, Hope, and Abigail break down while everyone else looks stunned. Julie asks Gabi to go with her to see him once more. Rafe steps down from the case so it's all on Hope. EJ calls someone to find and destroy all photos - now. Sami overhears and questions 'what photos'? He says the ones of them dragging Nick's body into the river. In another room, Hope says a tearful goodbye to Nick. She feels she let him down and is sorry. Gabi, Julie, and Maggie are next. The ladies feel they've failed him. "Sleep well, my angel," Maggie sobs. They go and Gabi flashes to better times with Nick when they were together, and then married. She touches him and then pulls away, fast. In the community room, Rafe's not sure how to comfort Gabi. Gabi comes out and tells Rafe Nick's at peace. By the hub, Hope questions Julie who tells her Nick was trying to point at the killer. Julie recounts who was there, "Sonny Kiriakis, Will Horton, Lucas Horton, Kate Roberts, Rafe and Gabi Hernandez, Jordan Ridgeway, Ben Rogers, Abigail, and that snake, EJ DiMera, and Sami Brady." Later, a nurse covers Nick's face with the sheet.

    Sami and EJ arrive home. Sami's miserable.

    I HATE JURASSIC JULIE! Would somebody shut-up that old battleaxe already.
    Hope they got plenty of donor organs from sicNic. Stalking Kate Is acting
    way to obvious to have shot anyone! She all but did a irish jig in Horton
    square. Ejammi is looking very suspicious but when aren't they? Wilson
    thinks each other did it and will cover for each other. Rafe no way Jose
    he is a Dudley do right! Mama's boy Lucas might take the fall AGAIN but
    lacks the stones to do the job. I am liking Gentle Ben or the Queen of
    de-nile Gabbi! Ben HATES any one showing a abusive mature towards woman!
    I hope it is lying IT'S NOT MY FAULT Gabbi. She will point her finger at
    every else and probably frame someone. When her hearing for Arianna comes
    up she will lose. Being a free loader and stupid to boot she will soon be
    a kidnapper too. TPTB went over board to gives us a great week of shows
    but dropped the ball with having poor innocent Alli witness the deadman
    bledding all over Horton square? Where is the town snitch at when you
    need her to point her finger at. If Adrienne doesn't know who dunnit she
    can always find out!

    Who killed NICK;
    either it will be Gabi or E.J.
    (why because they both are leaving the show).
    Gabi will no longer have a story line (she goes to jail and Will and Sonny get the baby

    Days need to go off the air, now.
    It will ne be good, when E.J. and Sami. leaves. I will stop watching it

    SPECULATION: Maybe Percy was related to Jensen and acted out of revenge. He could have been stalking Nick which would explain why he was there the night Nick drowned. He rescued Nick and gained his trust, waiting for the opportune moment to strike. All the other suspects are way to obvious. If the hit man got Nick he never would have walked away, so I think whoever killed Nick got to him before the hit man.

    Happy Monday!
    Up Top ya all! High fives all around with Nick being gone!!!

    Julie, PLEASE! How can she not see what a monster Nick was? Julie is so annoying. She used to so manipulative now they try to make her into some kind of saint? WTH!

    And Why would Hope be the head investigator on this? Nick was her cousin. There must be another cop in Salem.

    And some of us will start watching again after MAY....
    how sweet it is!!

    I still think Gabi did it and will plead guilty for
    a non jury trial and just have the judge hear the
    case and sentence her. Doesn't need to be a long
    drawn out affair. Some things can be brief and
    to the point!! Now on the other hand....had it
    been one of the famous couple that was killed....
    then the story would go on for years...........or
    like with the witch that is returning....that will
    go on all summer and probably mess Brady and John
    up again!!! Need that like we need a hole in our
    heads!!!!!

    HELLLLLOOOOOOOOO J U N E!!!!!!!!

    I think the hit-man was just a distraction to fans. I think Nick did it or at the very least, Caroline. I think thinking that every one from EJ down to Ben shooting Nick is too obvious. It could have even been Victor. I'm sure its somebody we least expect but It won't be surprising when we find out.

    Posted by CoachJack at Monday, May 12 2014 12:02 PM

    I think Caroline and Kayla were watching Ciara so I don't think Caroline did it.

    I think Ben did it, but Lucas saw him from the back, thought it was Sonny and will confess even though he had nothing to do with it.

    It was not the hit man, that would be way too obvious, and besides he was at Brady's Pub, he had just passed Julie when the shooting happened.

    I hope they do a story explaining why Julie was so close to Nick. Where was she when JJ was in trouble? For that matter, she doesn't seem to care at all about Jen almost dying at Liam's hands last week, and that really doesn't make alot of sense. I want to know what Julie's obsession with Nick was. Her acting like she was going to disown everybody over Nick was uncalled for, especially when she got on Nick about arguing with Abby not that long ago. Also Maggie should be the one to break the news to Jen about cousin Nick, that should not fall on Abby's shoulders.

    I hope I'm wrong about Ben because Abby will really question her own judgment if her next romantic adventure turns out to have murdered her cousin. But right now he seems the most likely to me, unless Percy sneaked back somehow from England.

    A couple of points. I watch enough nancy grace and csi to know nobody would have been able leave the scene for numerous reasons, stashing evidence, coordinate stories, and most importantly wash their hand destroying gunshot residue. Second, will left ari at Caroline's. Then Lucas brings Ali there. Poor Caroline. She has Alzheimer's and they should shield her from all this drama. Ali should have gone to the hospital to be treated for shock and interviewed there, letting her block out what may have been a critical detail. She could have seen movement behind Nick and helpful to the situation.

    That last scene where Julie was listing who she saw while we saw every one of them doing what they were doing was very well done. Kudos to the director and film editor.

    Posted by holdingonfordearlife at Monday, May 12 2014 12:13 PM

    Be funny if it was Abby!! That would be a shocker!!

    Maybe Roman did it...............going to be very
    interesting..................waiting for your
    re-caps on that Chrissi!!!
