At the Brady Pub, Nick (Blake Berris) told Rafe (Galen Gering) he wanted to spend the rest of his life taking care of Gabi (Camila Banus). Later, Ned Ashton, oops, wrong soap! I mean Justin (Wally Kurth) showed up and Rafe left.
Nick quickly gave Justin a dollar, so their conversation would be covered by attorney/client privilege. After Justin accepted it, Nick said he wanted to know what his and Gabi’s rights to the baby were. Nick also wanted to know what it would take to prove Will (Chandler Massey) would be an unfit father, so he and Gabi would get full custody. Justin told him he wanted nothing to do with Nick’s plan and gave him back the dollar.
Gabi asked God for forgiveness at the church. Nicole (Arianne Zucker) showed up and the two talked. I’m not sure what I think of Nicole becoming a talk-to, instead of being the one causing drama. Seems like a waste of talent to me.
Sami (Alison Sweeney) grilled Will (Chandler Massey) about his child. She told her son that if he wanted rights to his kid, he was going to have to fight for them. Will said maybe she should listen to the child’s father and do less talking. Sami said she was doing the talking, because Will hadn’t come to grips with things yet.
When EJ (James Scott) showed up, she left so that he could talk to her son alone. EJ provided a supportive shoulder for Will to lean on. Finally, he was able to get out how he felt about everything, without Lucas (Bryan Dattilo) or Sami pressuring him.
At the hospital, Daniel (Shawn Christian) confronted Jennifer (Melissa Reeves) about the phone number to Child Protective Services being on her desk. Meanwhile, Chloe (Nadia Bjorlin) lurked about the hospital to see how the little plot to set Jennifer up worked out. When it did, she was ecstatic.
Confused, Jennifer went to Maggie (Suzanne Rogers) for help in trying to figure out how the piece of paper ended up on her desk. Jennifer quickly speculated that Chloe was the one behind the note. Maggie recommended Jennifer should have a conversation with Daniel. By the end of the episode Daniel and Jennifer had met at the hospital and apologized to one another.
The single best moment of Tuesday’s Days of Our Lives is when Nicole bumped into Sami and greeted her with: “Oh hey, how’s it going there, granny?” The look on Sami’s face was priceless. I need more Nicole vs. Sami in my soap life.
EJ came to Sami's defense when she and Rafe went at it over Will and Gabi's drama. It's nice to see EJ and Sami actually being there for one another, no manipulation, no sinister agenda. This time around their reunion appears to organically be on the horizon.
