Lucas sits on a stool at Brady's Pub, and ices his hand. He turns to look at a glaring Roman

At the Pub, Roman finds Lucas icing his hand at the bar. Lucas explains his fight with EJ, who had the gall to accuse him of kidnapping Sami. Roman still has a lot of unanswered questions about what happened. He’s not convinced EJ is guilty of that crime, but he does consider him a creep. Lucas says Amen to that. Lucas stammers as he moves on to a new topic. He wants to get things right from the start this time and asks Roman’s permission to marry Sami.

“Like Sami wouldn’t do exactly what she wants to do whether I bless it or not,” Roman quips. Lucas says it’s not about Roman and Sami, it’s about Roman and Lucas. “Do you think I’m good enough for your daughter? Your opinion matters to me.” Lucas admits his history isn’t the best, and Roman agrees. “But you’ve also been a great dad to Will and Allie,” says the older man. “I love Sami very much. You’re good for her. I think you understand her in a way that nobody else does. So yes, you do have my blessing.”

When Kate and Marlena arrive at the Pub, Kate gets Lucas alone to urge him to come clean about kidnapping Sami. Lucas thinks he’s in the clear, as long as she and Chad keep their mouths shut.

Besides, everyone seems to have moved past it all. She declares she’s going to find out the truth. Chad tells her she doesn’t have to go anywhere to find out who kidnapped Sami. He knows who did it — it was Lucas.
