George comes in and she rants about how if it wasn’t for Daniel she’d be dead. George says if EJ wanted her dead she would be. Later, she flashes to reading to Sydney and starts to weep, explaining to Daniel how she read to Syd. Daniel comforts her while she says she’s a survivor and will land on her feet again.

In the pub, Kate and Stefano argue about spending time on the yacht. Kate worries Sami’s huddling with her lawyer now and she wants to know the plan. Kate thinks EJ will disappear with the kids and promises if he does, it will happen over her dead body.

Maggie goes to see Brady at the Kiriakis mansion but he’s not there. They discuss Brady’s drinking Maggie says a recovering addict is supposed to be staying away from anything that threatens his sobriety and mentions she’s considering going away. She didn’t like being anywhere that reminded her of Mickey but now she’s tempted to go on one of the trips they planned before he died. Victor thinks it’s lovely.
