At the DiMera residence, Sami kisses EJ. A folder is delivered, but before Sami can look inside, she gets a call from work. EJ takes the envelope, which contains a photo of him kissing Abigail. Sami hangs up and EJ kisses her. Sami mentions her mother is coming and goes to do emails. EJ returns to the folder and looks panicky. He closes the parlor doors, paces, and flashes to Sami saying she trusts him... Suddenly Sami is there. She gasps at the photo and asks if this is a sick joke, but realizes it's real. EJ says it meant nothing and it was months ago. Deflated, Sami asks, "Why?" EJ replies that there's no good answer to that, and says he loves only Sami. Tears run down her cheeks. EJ tells Sami he did it for her, to protect her. He had to stop Abigail from talking. She slaps him and lunges at him, thrashing. He hollers that it was when she took the jet - he thought he was losing her forever. Sami screams, "What were you thinking?" EJ now says it was only twice. Sami demands to know where. He blurts, "The men's locker room." Sami realizes she was there that day. EJ says he won't let her go. Sami brings up Abigail's pregnancy scare - it would have been his. She cries. EJ reminds her how long he's loved her and waited for her. Sami becomes ferociously angry when he says he wanted her then, but she was nowhere to be found. Sami attacks the photo. "This isn't a mistake. This is a betrayal!" He insists his heart never left Sami. EJ touches her and she threatens him with the letter opener. Sami eventually turns her attention to her handwritten wedding invitations in which she tries tells her loved ones she can trust EJ now, and everything's going to be perfect. She destroys them. EJ shakes his head. Sami is relieved this didn't happen at the altar. EJ says his transgression was insignificant; it meant nothing. Sami growls that he threw it away the second he touched her. EJ says she's not being rational, which prompts her to angrily rampage around the room smashing things. He struggles her to the floor. She sobs into his chest. "I love you so much." EJ sobs as well. Marlena arrives. EJ yells at her to get out, but Sami fills her in and implores Marlena to get her and her children out of there. Marlena tells EJ there's no going back from this betrayal... EJ arrives at Abigail's house to warn her Samantha knows. He spots a pregnancy test in a plastic baggie. She confirms she is pregnant. Sami appears. "Isn't that special." EJ holds Sami back as she lashes out at Abigail. Jennifer appears. Sami announces that her skank of a daughter had sex with her fiance and she's going to be a grandmother. Abigail runs up the stairs and Sami follows. EJ reaches them and there's a lot of shoving. Abigail goes over the railing by Sami's hand... EJ stares at the photo of him and Abigail and snaps out of his imaginings. Sami appears, laughing about something and notices the stark expression on his face. He assures her everything is fine. EJ glances at the letter opener as Marlena arrives and goes off with Sami. EJ curses at Stefano's portrait, wondering if he wants a war, but then questions if Stefano's responsible. At the front door, Marlena tells Sami she seems so happy. Sami cries happy tears. "We're whole." In the parlor, EJ vows not to lose Sami.
