Rafe2 sneaks into Fay’s hospital room and begins to smother her with a pillow. She tries to fight back, but in the end, he kills her! He quickly exits her room as her monitor alarms go off. Despite Carly and Lexie’s best efforts, they cannot revive Fay. Nicole and Taylor are led to believe their mother died of a stroke, and they ultimately decide to forego an autopsy. Lexie breaks the news to Roman about Fay’s demise. Rafe2 is relieved to learn that Fay’s death is being chalked up to natural causes. Remembering her mother’s last words to her, Nicole vows to uncover EJ’s secret. Meanwhile, Taylor allows herself to seek comfort in EJ’s arms.  Vivian has fun tormenting Chloe, then sneaks into Stefano’s house with Gus. Chad discovers her, and then Stefano berates her. Gus has better luck and informs Vivian that there was recently a prisoner in the DiMeras’ basement. Philip takes Chloe out for an open mic night at the Brady Pub. She sings and begins to find her joy again in music and in life.  Rafe2 decides not to tell EJ and Stefano that he was responsible for Fay’s death. Meanwhile, Nicole and Taylor console each other as they grieve over Fay. Nicole, however, can’t stop thinking about their mother’s last words – that EJ has a secret. Nicole confronts her husband, who insists he has no idea what Fay was talking about. Privately, EJ is worried. Later, Nicole overhears EJ tell Stefano he thinks Fay was trying to tell Nicole about Rafe.  A masked man follows and threatens Melanie, and tells her to drop the reward for information on Arianna’s hit-and-run. Dario saves her, but the man escapes. Melanie and Dario go to “Rafe,” who is not at all interested. Dario decides he will get to the bottom of this himself – and Melanie insists she will help him. Carly feigns an elbow injury to get a prescription from Lexie. Daniel catches her with the pills and insists on looking at her elbow. Carly snaps at him. Daniel and Jennifer are forced to face their attraction, but each discount it as a “rebound” thing. Each privately resolves to stay away from the other.

Nicole eavesdrops on EJ and Stefano as they talk about their secret that involves Rafe. Before she can get the full story, EJ and Stefano are alerted to her presence. Nicole covers. Meanwhile, Rafe2 and Sami have it out when she learns he asked Johnny to fetch him a beer. A frustrated Sami decides to take her children to visit her brother, Eric, for a short break. Rafe2 is secretly triumphant; convinced this is the final nail in the coffin of their marriage. Sami goes to EJ to let him know she’s taking the kids out of town. He pretends to be sympathetic to her troubles. At the same time, Nicole decides to investigate EJ’s secret regarding Rafe. She drops by the loft to question Rafe. Rafe2 misreads her intentions – and pulls Nicole into a major kiss!  Bo and Hope are ready to start over as a family, but Ciara misunderstands and uses an opportunity to run away with Theo. The kids hop on a truck headed out of town. A horrified Bo and Hope soon realize what has happened, while Ciara and Theo make camp in the woods. Carly struggles to keep her cool as Daniel offers to examine her “injured” elbow. On edge, Carly blows up at him. She doesn’t want Daniel to find out she faked the injury to get pain medication. Jennifer arrives, and she and Daniel express concern for Carly’s emotional state. Carly warns them to back off – and then pops a couple of pills in her office. Under the calming influence of the drugs, she later apologizes to both of them. Daniel senses something is wrong, but Carly insists she’s just upset about Nicholas rejecting her. Later, Daniel and Jennifer continue to fight their feelings for each other.

Nicole slaps Rafe2 for kissing her. She thinks he’s using her again to get info on EJ. “Rafe” denies this and blames his accident for his behavior. He and Nicole agree not to mention this to EJ. Alone, Nicole is still determined to discover Rafe’s connection to EJ. Meanwhile, EJ tells Stefano that Sami took the kids and went to Eric’s. Later, EJ comforts Taylor in her grief over Fay’s death. He then goes to Rafe2 to congratulate him on driving Sami away. Cocky Rafe2 lets it slip that Nicole dropped by to see him, which worries EJ. Meanwhile, Nicole tells Taylor that the secret Fay spoke of has to do with Rafe. Bo and Hope search for Ciara and Theo, convinced they haven’t gone far. Hope finds a note from Ciara and realizes why she ran away. Meanwhile, Lexie comforts Abe, who grieves for Fay, as well as Brandon, the son he never got to raise. Lexie reminds him he has a second chance with Theo. Hope calls Lexie about the children. Abe and Lexie show up at Bo and Hope’s house. Bo reassures everyone the children will be found. Meanwhile, Ciara and Theo are farther away from Salem than everyone thinks. Ciara is confident her parents will get along better now that she’s gone and she vows to stay away forever. Abigail invites Chad to join her in a summer internship at the hospital but he says he’ll be working at DiMera Enterprises. Abigail tries to hide her dismay but Chad realizes she’s worried he’ll be asked to get involved in the shadier parts of the business. Chad admits he wonders about that himself. When Kate and Stefano join them, Chad says he’s reconsidering working for his father. Kate and Stefano realize Abigail has influenced him. Kate, off her own anger towards Chloe, advises Stefano to get Abigail out of his son’s life before she turns son against father.

Bo and Hope continue to frantically search for Ciara and Theo. Abe and Lexie check the hospital, then she breaks down and he consoles her. Bo and Hope grow closer as they work as a team to find their daughter. Meanwhile, Ciara refuses to answer her phone when Hope calls. She insists Theo not answer either. Later, Ciara falls and is knocked unconscious. Theo panics when he can’t wake her. He’s torn when Hope calls again, wondering if he should go against Ciara’s wishes and answer. After hearing from Rafe2 that Nicole came by for a visit, EJ fears she overheard him and Stefano talking about replacing Rafe. Stefano says they have to get the imposter out of town while Nicole is in Chicago for her mother’s funeral. That way she can’t question him any more. EJ and Stefano tell Rafe2 to leave town for good but first he has to play out all the goodbyes to make it look authentic. Nicole almost voices her concerns about EJ to Taylor but decides to keep it to herself. Taylor covers her feelings for EJ in front of Nicole. Taylor confesses to Maggie she’d like to have someone special in her life, especially at a time like this. At the mansion, Nicole talks with a vision of Fay and theorizes that EJ caused Rafe’s car accident in order to get rid of him. When EJ returns home, he and Nicole play a game of cat and mouse, trying to get information out of each other. Taylor returns and senses the tension. Nicole secretly wants to question Rafe more about her theory, but is thwarted when EJ says they have to leave for Chicago immediately. Alone, Nicole guesses she can wait to talk to Rafe until she gets back.

Rafe2 decides to ignore EJ and Stefano’s warning to play things out – he’s leaving immediately. He packs up and heads out, only to be stopped by Gabi and Will, who decided earlier they need to have an intervention to get Sami and Rafe back together. Philip relays the bad news to Chloe that Social Services is still denying shared custody. He leaves to talk to a lawyer and runs into Kate. They have it out over Philip getting sucked in by Chloe again. Kate then approaches Chloe, who is drowning her sorrows at the bar. Kate blasts her for being a horrible mother and vows to keep Chloe out of Philip and Parker’s lives. Chloe throws a drink in her face and storms off.
