Taylor walks in as Bo, Hope and Sami recreate the moment Rafe2 threw Fay down the stairs. She is stunned to hear “Rafe’s” admission that he killed her mother. Sami tries to cover, but Taylor says she heard him with her own two ears. Rafe tries to stop Kate from entering the DiMera mansion before she discovers the commotion going on inside. She gets a call from Quinn and leaves. Sami takes Taylor to the loft and urges her to trust her. Taylor thinks Sami is just trying to save her husband’s neck. She wants to tell Nicole but Sami talks her out of it. When Sami goes to check on the kids, however, Nicole shows up at the door. Rafe, Bo and Hope get the imposter out of the mansion and back to the hideout. While videotaping him, Bo and Hope get him to confess to Fay’s murder – and also implicate EJ and Stefano. However, the imposter knocks the camera off the stand and it goes crashing to the floor. When Kate meets up with Quinn, he refuses to help her get proof of Chloe’s prostitution; he tells her she must do that on her own. Later, Quinn comes upon Vivian and Gus discussing his various businesses. Quinn realizes his mother’s been checking up on him. He admits to Vivian he came to town because of her; he would rather have a viper mother than no mother at all. He offers to help her exact revenge on her enemies. A skeptical Vivian says she’ll think about it. Kate happens upon them and wonders about their connection.

Chloe’s first client, Rob, awakens and she’s relieved that he doesn’t remember being drugged. Thinking they had sex, Rob wants another round, but she manages to fend him off. She runs into Justin at the club and Rob assumes he’s Chloe’s next customer. Chloe manages to cover and promises Justin she’ll be on her best behavior so she can get Parker back. Kate runs into Chad and learns he’s decided to work for Stefano in the “gray area.” Abigail reveals to Adrienne that she’s seeing a DiMera. Adrienne cautions against it. Abigail defends Chad, saying he’s not like his family. Chad enters in time to hear this. He feels guilty when she says she knows he’d never get involved in anything underhanded.

At the clinic, EJ briefly regains consciousness with Daniel. Carly, Jennifer and Melanie are relieved to hear he doesn’t remember who attacked him. Daniel gets EJ to the hospital, where Lexie buys Daniel’s story that he found EJ and brought him in immediately. Meanwhile, Melanie seeks out Brady, who’s being evasive with Victor about having been in a fight. Melanie provides a cover for Brady, then, in private, urges him to set aside his vendetta against EJ. Jennifer takes Carly home after treating EJ. She helps her exhausted friend into bed and then finds white powder residue on a table. Jennifer studies it, recalling how out of sorts Carly has been all night. Bo, Hope and Rafe are crushed when they play back the videotape. They discover that while the imposter’s confession is still there, his indictment of the DiMeras has been erased. As they process this, the news comes that EJ was injured in an apparent mugging. All three sense an opportunity – with EJ injured and possibly off his game, they just might be able to bluff him into thinking they got the imposter’s entire confession. If EJ confirms what they already know, they’ll have him.

Despite promising Sami she’d keep quiet, Taylor sneaks out with Nicole and reveals that Rafe Hernandez murdered Fay. Since she believes that EJ brainwashed Rafe, Nicole realizes that he is indirectly responsible for her mother’s death. Nicole keeps this revelation from Taylor and rushes to the hospital where EJ is recovering from his attack. She’s ready to confront him with what she knows, unaware that if she does, she may ruin Bo’s chances of sandbagging EJ by catching him off-guard. Bo and Rafe are on a mission to get EJ’s confession but are waylaid at the hospital. Nicole is about to tell EJ that Rafe killed Fay when Bo interrupts. Bo ushers Nicole out of the room and begins to show EJ the imposter’s taped confession when his blood pressure plummets and his monitors sound. Meanwhile, Nicole confronts Stefano. Taylor panics when Rafe tracks her down at the pier. He questions her, and she lies that she’s told no one about him killing Fay. Hope relieves Rafe and takes over watching Taylor. Taylor is appalled that Hope is letting her mother’s murderer get away. Hope learns that Taylor and EJ are in a relationship. Desperate to get to EJ and frustrated at being detained, Taylor pushes Hope out of her way and knocks her unconscious.

Daniel evades Stefano and Lexie’s questions and successfully pulls off his cover story regarding finding EJ on the pier. Meanwhile, Jennifer confronts Carly about the powdery substance in her room. Carly lies that it’s aspirin. Jennifer remains slightly suspicious, but Daniel unwittingly offers corroboration for Carly’s story. Victor deduces that Brady beat up EJ and chastises Melanie for lying to him. Victor warns Brady that he’s started a war. Later, Melanie talks to Victor about his relationship with Maggie. Meanwhile, Maggie confides to Julie that she’s decided to give up on the idea of having a relationship with Victor. Melanie then comes to Maggie and says the fragile peace in Salem has been disturbed. She suggests Maggie take Victor out of town, away from the danger.

EJ is taken to surgery, preventing Bo from trying to trick him into admitting his link to Rafe2. Meanwhile, Taylor gets away from Hope and rushes to the hospital to see EJ. Adrienne and Justin find unconscious Hope on the pier and revive her. Hope calls Bo and tells him about Taylor and EJ’s relationship. Bo realizes the surgery will keep Taylor at bay for now. Later, Bo meets up with Hope at the Cheatin’ Heart, and they discuss how to best trap EJ.

At the hospital, Stefano impresses upon Chad how important family is and the need to stick together, especially now that EJ has been attacked. Alone with Kate, Stefano talks about how happy Chad makes him. Kate later sees Abigail comfort Chad. She remains convinced the young girl is an impediment to Stefano’s bond with his son.

EJ’s surgery turns out to be minor. Stefano vows to unconscious EJ he will find out who tried to kill him. EJ comes to and sees Taylor at the door. Stefano orders her out, but EJ wants her to stay. Stefano goes, and EJ sees something’s upsetting Taylor. She reveals that Rafe murdered Fay. A shocked and guilt-ridden EJ realizes the imposter is responsible. Nicole vents her grief to a vision of Fay. She vows to her mother she’ll get revenge for EJ’s part in her death. Gabi, Will, “T” and Kinsey prepare for graduation. Kinsey blabs to “T” that Gabi and Will haven’t had sex. Gabi tries to put the moves on Will, but he backs away. Caroline gives Gabi some advice and explains Will’s past with his parents may have something to do with his reluctance. Gabi decides to take it slow with Will. Abigail greets a hot young guy with a big hug, which Will and Gabi witness. After Gabi leaves, Abigail introduces Will to the guy – it’s her cousin, Sonny Kiriakis. He’s in town to visit his parents, Adrienne and Justin. Later, Sonny goes to see Adrienne and Justin, who are thrilled to see him. Sonny learns his mom and dad haven’t told great-uncle Victor or anyone else the truth about him.

Hope has an idea how to keep Taylor from talking to EJ. Unfortunately, she’s already at the hospital revealing to EJ that Rafe killed her mother. Weak EJ is so sorry and it looks like he might confess, but doesn’t. He says he’d do anything to break the guy’s neck. Bo and Hope arrive at the hospital and arrest Taylor for assaulting Hope. At the station, Taylor tells Bo she thinks Rafe is behind EJ’s attack. Bo finds this interesting. At the same time, Hope learns from Jennifer that Brady was responsible. Carly overhears and is mad at Jennifer for telling Hope since it endangers Melanie. Hope calls Bo and alerts him. Hope tries to reassure the two women that she will do what she can to protect all parties. Carly is called away and Hope notes Carly seemed on edge. Jennifer, on her own track, covers and says she’s under a lot of stress. Hope goes to Carly and reassures her that she will protect Melanie and everyone else involved.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Nicole checks on Brady, and Victor flies off the handle. He says her presence could lead the DiMeras to Brady. Bo arrives and thinks Victor has a point. He arrests Nicole to get her out of the way and then blasts Brady for his actions. Brady wants to know if his uncle is going to arrest him. Bo says there might be a way around it, but all hell may break loose. Jennifer is reminded of the missing meds at the hospital. Her suspicion falls on Carly and she decides to investigate. She swipes the key to her friend’s room. Melanie comes clean to Maggie about Brady and her involvement in the cover-up. Maggie is reluctant to go away with Victor; however, she wants to help Melanie and will see what she can do. Meanwhile, Detective McCarthy questions Dario after someone reports having seeing him at the pier the night of the attack. Adrienne starts to cover for him, but he won’t let her. McCarthy decides to take Dario down to the station, just as Melanie arrives.
