EJ Eavesdrops and Learns the Truth About Nicole's Baby on Days of Our Lives
Rafe (Galen Gering) and Sami (Alison Sweeney) were well on their way to hot and heavy couch sex, as EJ (James Scott) stewed in a brine of his own making. However, Rafe got a call from Daniel (Shawn Christian) saying Nicole needed him at the hospital. After he left, there was a knock at the door. Sami opened the door to discover an angry EJ. He tormented her for a bit before seeing the Caller ID on the phone. She threatened to call the police, and EJ surprisingly left quickly.
Daniel arrived at the hospital to visit Nicole (Arianne Zucker). It didn't take long for her to tell him Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) pushed her down the stairs, causing her to lose the baby. Through tears, Nicole recounted all the things she could have done to avoid such a tragedy. When Rafe arrived to comfort Nicole, she wept in his arms. Nicole certainly proved the old adage that the best lie is one that has an element of truth in it. In this case, Nicole’s truth is grief over losing a child. Unfortunately, when EJ arrived at the hospital, he overheard Rafe and Nicole admit Rafe isn’t really the father.
At the jail, Jennifer recalled to Abby (Kate Mansi) and Hope (Kristian Alfonso) what led up to the altercation with Nicole. Hope suggested they call Justin (Wally Kurth) because he would bring sanity to the situation. Daniel arrived at the jail to speak with Jennifer after Hope and Abby left. He told her he needed to understand what happened. Jennifer told him what she remembered happening didn’t match up with Nicole's side of the story.
At Sonny’s (Freddie Smith) coffee house, John (Drake Hogestyn), Marlena (Deidre Hall), Will (Chandler Massey) and Sonny all shared some coffee. The foursome chatted about how both their relationships were in a good place. When Marlena and Will went to get coffee, Sonny asked John if he’d be interested in participating in a new idea he had for the coffee house.
Meanwhile, Stefano (Joseph Mascolo) continued his attempt to convince Kristen (Eileen Davidson) to return to Salem and help him salvage the family. She didn’t seem particularly convinced by his sales pitch.
