Everyone gapes in shock as Daniel walks into SPD with Kristen. Sami stops Marlena from lunging and Kristen smirks. She didn't realize she'd attract such a crowd for her homecoming. "Miss me?" Sami and Marlena yell at her while Hope and Eric come between them. Abe shows up and Jenn and Nicole listen in horror as Daniel explains about the kidnapping. The harpies start again while Eric stares Kristen down. Hope takes Kristen into her office. Daniel collapses and Abe takes him to the hospital. Sami can't reach Brady - he left his cell home so Nicole learns from Henderson that Brady left home a while ago. Meanwhile, Kristen asks for her lawyer. Hope goes back to the others and asks her lawyer, EJ, to come with her. Roman walks in as EJ's led to Kristen. Nicole snipes she'll hold Sami responsible if EJ gets Kristen off. Jenn goes to check on Daniel while Hope cuffs Kristen and leaves a guard by the door while Kristen explains the kidnapping. In the main room, Sami and Nicole go at it. Roman comes between them. Sami and Nicole elect to watch Kristen since some of the SPD guards are on the DiMera payroll. Roman gives both ladies the boot and Hope asks Nicole for no press. Roman and Marlena head to the DA's office. In Hope's office, EJ calls his sister a twisted psychotic little b****. He tells her his access to everything DiMera has been curtailed because he agreed to keep her secret about Eric. Kristen thinks it started when he did Abigail. EJ says that was one of the biggest mistakes - another was not staying away from Kristen. "We are finished," he says. Kristen attempts to make a deal. She'll get Samanther back if he helps her out of this bind. Roman and Marlena return. There's enough evidence to charge Kristen with sexual assault and drugging Eric. She can't get bail. Hope refuses to allow Marlena a minute alone with the prisoner so she goes off to find Brady. In Hope's office, EJ refuses Kristen's help. She reminds him they're family. He tells her Samantha and his children are family. He'll help the DA put her away. Kristen warns that if he betrays her there'll be a steep price. "I'll destroy you." EJ grins and nods. He jokes to the guard that he's being threatened by someone cuffed to a chair. Hope arrives and EJ refuses representation.
