Jane consults with Stefano and decides it’s time to kill Bo. Unfortunately, her police accomplice is unable to do her dirty work, so she must do it herself. Jane returns to the hideout to finish off Bo, but is shocked to discover he’s gone! Hope surprises a sleeping Nathan and grills him about his connection to the prison. Nathan is beyond shocked as he explains the mix-up between his phone and Ben’s. Hope realizes Nathan is not involved; Ben is. Nathan follows Hope’s wishes and gets a message to Jennifer, who’s had some bonding time with Carly. Jennifer meets Hope at the boat and promises to help. Later, Jennifer crosses with Ben and realizes he has a key to the infirmary. She formulates a plan. Brady rescues Vivian and Gus from their island “vacation” after getting her to sign paperwork. Victor shows Maggie the rescue in progress, and she agrees to let him make dinner plans.

Philip talks to Kate about Parker. Chloe is more convinced than ever that Parker is the key to Daniel’s heart. She is upset when she finds Carly at Daniel’s apartment and even more upset when she meets with Philip, who wants to change Parker’s name. Meanwhile, Victor offers Melanie his support. Later, Nathan goes to Melanie and tells her he wants to be with her regardless of the fact that she’s carrying Philip’s baby. Emotional, Melanie explains she isn’t ready, and asks Nathan to leave. EJ sends Nicole to pick up Sydney from Sami. Stefano tells EJ that their plan to remove Rafe from Sami and his children’s lives can move forward. Meanwhile, Rafe bonds with Johnny and tells Daniel he’s wary about EJ’s change of heart. Nicole tells EJ that Sami is late with Sydney. EJ is cool with it and even lets Rafe be with Johnny, knowing well this will be one of the last times.

Hope tells Leo about sending Jennifer off to find the connection between Ben and Jane. Hope remains concerned that she has put so many of her loved ones in danger. Meanwhile, Jane believes that Bo has escaped, but he’s trapped behind the door of the hideout. He jumps Jane and insists on knowing what she’s up to. Jane stalls for time and Bo comes face-to-face with the state investigator on her payroll. They chain up Bo, and plan to kill him that night by making it look like he was fleeing arrest. Jennifer, meanwhile, faces obstacles as she tries to get Ben’s key to the prison infirmary. She, Ben and Daniel go to the Brady Pub. Jennifer and Daniel bond while Ben is on the phone. Daniel inadvertently makes Jennifer realize that helping Hope is more important than betraying Ben. When Ben comes back, she deliberately hugs him and her hand goes to his pocket and pulls out his keys.

Victor sets up a “safe” brunch for Maggie, instead of dinner, to make her feel comfortable. Vivian’s return with Brady interrupts their warm moment. Maggie leaves and Vivian tells Victor she’s divorcing him and leaving town for a while. She regrets the time wasted on him. She goes to Maggie and says Victor will soon be free. Maggie can no longer hide behind Victor’s marriage to keep him at arm’s length. Maggie is unsettled. Victor thanks Brady for getting Vivian to sign over control of Titan. He’s a chip off the old block. However, alone Brady says more than Victor knows. Sami is thrilled to be getting shared custody of the kids with EJ. Rafe admits he was wary, but the custody papers all seem in order. Sami and Rafe start to make love, but Sydney interrupts. Sami has a moment alone with Sydney and tells her how things are all finally working out for them. Nicole questions EJ about the noise from the basement. EJ doesn’t confide in her but says it’s almost time for the signing of the custody papers. Nicole thinks Sami isn’t going to like all the terms. When Sami and Rafe meet with EJ, she is ready to sign until Nicole comes in. Sami is stunned to learn that EJ is still marrying Nicole, and he stipulates in a new addendum that Nicole has rights to the kids if anything happens to him. Sami explodes and almost comes to blows with Nicole. Rafe tries to talk her down because he believes it’s the best deal they’re going to get. Furious, Sami refuses to sign and storms out. Philip finds Chloe out drinking alone and wonders where their son is. Chloe says Parker is with Maggie. They exchange words over changing Parker’s name. Philip thinks Chloe isn’t herself. Maggie shows up with Parker, and reveals that Chloe was supposed to pick him up over an hour ago. Philip takes Parker out for a walk as Chloe admits to Maggie that her life is falling apart and how hard it is to take care of the baby. Maggie, alarmed, insists that Chloe and Parker stay with her for the night. Kate brings Melanie a gift for her soon-to-be grandchild. Melanie tells Kate to forget about her and Philip getting back together. Kate plays on Melanie’s past of growing up without her father and tells her she must put her child first. Then she introduces the idea of Melanie and Philip raising Parker as well, as brother to their child. Melanie says she’s not interested, and Chloe wouldn’t give up Parker anyway. However, Kate’s wheels are turning.

Jennifer steals Ben’s prison infirmary key, and breaks in to find files on the dead inmates. Jane and Lee almost catch her, but she manages to take photos of the files and slip out. Later, Jennifer looks at the files and realizes she needs a doctor to decode them. She eyes Ben when he returns to the Brady Pub looking for his keys. Jennifer plays innocent and Ben finds his keychain, but she keeps the infirmary key. A mysterious woman makes plans to come to Salem while looking at pictures of Nicole. Sami has rejected EJ’s offer and Rafe tries to do damage control. Sami goes to Justin for legal advice and realizes she’s got no real legs to stand on. EJ admits he didn’t handle the presentation of Nicole’s role in the childrens’ lives very well. He offers to call Sami, but Rafe thinks he needs to talk to her alone. Rafe goes home and pretty much tells Sami this is the way it has to be. At home, Nicole and EJ celebrate. EJ tells Nicole she’s a part of his family. Back at the loft, Sami storms out on Rafe. She gets in her car and drives. Rafe follows and gets in an accident when a deer jumps into his path. Chloe makes a desperate attempt to get Daniel back by bringing Parker to the hospital and lying that he is sick. Daniel, Maggie and Victor all realize something is wrong with Chloe. Chad asks Adrienne for a job but is turned down for the time being. Lexie talks to him about what it’s like being a DiMera. After his talk with Sami, Justin visits Adrienne at the Cheatin’ Heart, and they reconnect… which culminates in the two of them making love! An injured Rafe is rushed to the hospital and Sami begs for him not to leave her. At the same time, EJ and Nicole inform Stefano of Sami’s outrage about the custody agreement. Stefano receives word that Rafe was in a terrible accident and worries this could unhinge his and EJ’s plan. Nicole overhears but EJ covers. They all leave for the hospital. EJ and Nicole find a guilt-ridden Sami, who agrees to sign the custody papers. Stefano peppers Ben with questions about Rafe’s physical condition. After a bit of worry and grief, Ben informs everyone that Rafe will recover – though it’s too soon to tell if he will have brain damage. Stefano realizes the accident will play nicely into his and EJ’s plans. Bo tries to get the upper hand with the crooked state investigator, but in his current state, he is no match for his guard. At the same time, Hope has a close call with a cop. Elsewhere, Jennifer enlists Carly’s help in decoding the medical files. The photos are too blurry so Jennifer takes Carly to the infirmary. After browsing the original files, Carly realizes the warden is killing inmates for organs. Jane and Lee come in as Carly and Jennifer hide. They overhear the plan to execute Bo, and after Jane and Lee leave, Jennifer and Carly split up to warn all. Jennifer calls Hope about Bo, then Lee discovers her and tells her the jig is up. Ben calls in a request for a heart, and Lee says she just might have one as she looks to Jennifer! Meanwhile, Carly and Hope arrive in the forest just as the state investigator is about to shoot Bo! Victor tells Kate about Chloe’s latest stunt. Kate thinks it’s wonderful; it’ll make it easier to steal Parker away from her. Victor doesn’t want to upset Philip or Daniel, so he chooses not to involve himself in Kate’s campaign against Chloe. He thinks they should let things play out. Kate can’t believe Victor won’t help her. Daniel tells Melanie about what Chloe tried at the hospital. He asks her to be for there for Parker no matter what happens and she agrees. Meanwhile, Chloe continues to wallow in depression and Maggie tries to comfort her. She calls for Daniel’s help and he rushes right over. Chloe is overjoyed that Daniel has come back to her, but is upset when she realizes he’s there for a different reason. Daniel gets real with Chloe, who realizes she lost everything. At the same time, Kate moves in on Melanie and tries to enlist her help.

    Thank you.

    The Justin and Adrienne stuff was the best part this week. I hope we get more of them.

    I also love how Justin is the only one that can control Sami and tell how things are when she goes off the handle. I love seeing Justin in lawyer mode. Need to see more of that. :)
