Brady lists off Vivian’s misdeeds and angrily throws his glass at the camera. Vivian tells Brady she has thought about all the ghastly things she has done to everyone. She’s grateful he has forced her to see things in a new light and wants to be let go. Vivian’s sure Gus will find her and she’ll rise again but Brady informs her he left town. Vivian calls Gus the personification of loyalty but Brady smirks and tells Vivian that Gus called Maggie to warn her! "That useless little eunuch." Vivian says the inside of the sarcophagus there is toxic substance that’ll make her go insane before turning her into a vegetable. Vivian appeals to Brady but he turns off the feed and goes downstairs. Victor can sense he’s upset. Brady’s fine and will be at the memoriam. Brady heads back upstairs and turns on the feed. He did consider letting her go but instead he’s going to make it appear that she has sent an email to Victor, letting him know she left him and doesn’t want him to contact her. Vivian gasps! She doesn’t think this will work. She starts to cry and cries out, "No!" The email is sent and he starts packing Vivian’s belongings. He finds a second cell phone and texts her friend saying the mission was aborted. He finds Lawrence’s urn and tells her he’ll bury it at the pet cemetery. He turns off the feed.

Downstairs, in the Kiriakis mansion, Maggie tells Victor to accept they’ll only be friends. He will honor her request but won’t like it. Maggie takes off upset and tells herself it’s the right thing to do.

At the pub, Kate pressures Will to tell him what he’s hiding. He flashes to Sami telling him what she did. Kate lets on she wouldn’t have blamed Sami if she shot EJ. She’d have done the same for her kids and grandkids. Kate gets a call from Lexi who tells her to come to the hospital right away.

In the hospital, Sami begs Lexi to help her make this decision. Lexi says EJ doesn’t want his life prolonged by artificial means and the other doctor agrees so they recommend Sami pull the plug. Rafe holds Sami as she ponders what her next step is. Stefano arrives and starts yelling that Sami thinks she’s God. Lexi explains the situation to an overwrought Stefano, who gazes in at EJ. Stefano wants to call Johns Hopkins but Lexi urges him to let go. He can’t. She cries and reminds her father of EJ’s DNR request. Stefano sits with EJ while Lexi flashes to discussing another patient in that position. EJ tells her life’s about feeling alive and he’d want them to pull the plug if it were him in that patient’s shoes. In EJ’s room, Stefano cries and wishes he were there for him as a child but relishes each day they’ve had together. He isn’t sure how to say goodbye and sobs.

Sami and Rafe go to the lounge and Sami rants at how insensitive Stefano’s behaving. Rafe thinks she should consider that as soon as EJ’s off life support, the shooter will go from an attempted murderer to a murderer. Sami turns away and flashes to shooting EJ and slowly turns back to Rafe, “Oh my God. You know.” He nods. Rafe thinks it’s Will but Sami yells, “Have you lost your mind?” She denies this but Rafe thinks it fits. Sami is upset that he’d turn her son into the police. She rants and raves and Rafe finally shuts her up. He has no evidence. He’d protect Will in any case, not turn him in. Sami calms right down and professes to love him.

Outside, Abe comforts Lexi and Kate and Will arrive and learn EJ has deteriorated. Sami and Rafe return. Lexi discusses pulling the plug when EJ’s machines start beeping. Lexi rushes to EJ’s side and Stefano is pushed away. The doctors assist EJ and get the machines on track. Lexi says everything that can be done does has. Sami goes to sit with EJ. She never thought it would end like this and goes to tell the family her decision. They take him off life support. Lexi sobs.
