At the DiMera mansion, Sami studies a painting. Johnny rushes in asking her to take them to a theme park with daddy. EJ walks in and it's uncomfortable so Sami tickles Johnny and cackles. She'll try to make it happen. He runs off happily and Sami assumes this was EJ's doing. He denies it and asks why the Jackson Pollock painting is out. She says she sold it for five hundred thousand dollars which makes EJ nuts. It's worth more than that and is part of their children's inheritance. Sami has plans to invest the money wisely. He gets back to the theme park idea and reminds her of the time they took a ride on a carousel. Sami says, "Yeah, but that was before you took a ride on Abby Deveraux." EJ reminds her they've faced worst crises than this. Sami harrumphs and leaves to get a restraining order on him.

Jenn debates calling Daniel but Hope calls, so she asks to meet.
In the truck on the way to Salem, Daniel tells Kristen their stop is near the Salem Police Department. Kristen's eyes nearly pop out of her head. She glances at the box cutter and picks a fight. She agrees to back off if he lets her go. He knows she's lying. It's his mission to make "crazy cakes" pay for all the lives she has messed up. She starts to feign bawling and grabs the box cutter.
