Days of Our Lives Recap for June 19.
An Eye For An Eye.
Brady runs into Arianna at the Java Cafe. They are both going to the funeral. She’s afraid for her brother. He’s told so many lies for Sami that he could be in danger. Brady tells her just to worry about EJ.
EJ and Nicole are at the church when Sami and Roman arrive. Roman instantly gets in EJ’s face to back him off. Elvis isn’t impressed. Bo reminds him that he’s in a church. “I wouldn’t dream of disrespecting my daughter’s service. It wasn’t me that made her entire life a lie,” he snipes. Will and Mia arrive. He doesn’t want to talk to his mother. As Sami and her family go into the chapel, Will explains to Mia who Grace’s father is. After they walk off, Nicole tells her husband to wait until after the service before he tries to get revenge. She tells him he needs to take some time to grieve.
In the chapel, Rafe tells Father Matt how angry he is that God took baby Grace. Sami joins him and he tells her that Grace will always be with them. They can make it through this. As she cries on his shoulder, EJ walks in and stares. Will and Mia stand in the corner and he explains what a liar his mother is. He understands why his mother lied to keep EJ from Grace though.
Elvis gets upset and walks out. He tells Nicole to leave him while he says a prayer. When she leaves, he calls to make sure that the paperwork has been prepared. When he turns around, Stephanie walks in and begins ranting at him for having a psycho lock her in a morgue drawer. He doesn’t care. She tells him he doesn’t deserve to have children or be alive. When he shoots back at her, she slaps him across the face and threatens him never to threaten her again. Philip walks in. Elvis tells them that he is exercising his self control and suggests that she show some of that herself. After he walks off, she apologizes to Philip but he doesn’t think she needs to.
Will and Mia sit while the family files in. Caroline approaches and takes him away while Mia weeps. Nicole sits behind her and puts a hand on her shoulder. “I know you’re here for Grace and you should be,” she says. Caroline wanders over to Sami. “You always said that God gives us what we can handle,” Sami reminds her. Caroline thinks she can handle it. Sami can’t handle the lies. As Nicole gets up to leave, she bumps into Brady. He tells her she must know how Sami feels. Maybe she should have had a ceremony for her own baby. She insists that what she did was what was right for EJ.
Roman turns to EJ and flashes his badge. He threatens to turn it in if he hurts one more member of his family. Then he can deal with him without having to play by the rules. Across the aisle, Steph and Philip stare daggers at EJ. She can’t stand watching EJ play the grieving father. Arianna walks her brother down the aisle and tells him she knows how hard this is for him. Meanwhile, Brady commiserates with Sami and tells her that he loves her for what she did for her kid. Hope comes over to hug her next. Then Bo takes a turn and tells her how hard the coming weeks will be. Father Matt asks everyone to sit while he begins the service. Caroline goes up to read from The Bible, then Will tells stories of Grace until he can’t go on. Elvis stands up. He doesn’t remember anything about Grace, he says, bitterly. The reason he gets up every day is to make sure his children are safe. He talks about how perfect and unique children are and how lucky Sami and Rafe are to have memories of the little girl. “You will always have those memories, but I never even held her and have nothing,” he says. After he returns to his seat, Mia begins singing ‘Amazing Grace’. When she breaks down, Caroline continues the song and everyone else joins in. As everyone takes communion, EJ asks Sami if she’s been to confession to have her sins absolved. “At least I’m sorry for them,” she says. She and Rafe lay flowers before Grace’s picture and tell her they’ll always love her. EJ walks up and vows never to forget her. Steph pays her respects to Sami and then crosses over to EJ to rant at him again. “Next time you see him hold your child, remember the blood on his hands,” she tells Nicole. Elvis tells Philip to control his woman.
Arianna comforts her brother and asks him if not telling EJ was a mistake. He thinks letting him find out was the only mistake. His sister hopes he doesn’t take this all on himself. She leaves with Brady. Sami’s family tells her how strong she’s been and hugs her. EJ watches and broods. Rafe tells her it’s time to go home to take care of Allie and Johnny. “Thank God for them,” she weeps. Father Matt comes in to say the nuns are there to see Sami. Nicole freaks as she remembers her meeting with them. Meanwhile, EJ hands Sami a court order. He’s taking Johnny from her. “An eye for an eye,” he says.
When Stephanie and Philip get home, she tries telling herself that she’s fine and then begins popping pills. Meanwhile, Mia gets back to work only to be surprised by Chad as he pops up at the counter.
Max goes down to the hospital to ‘disenroll’ from med school. He bumps into his sister and she explains that she isn’t going to London after all. He tells her that she can always come and visit him and then teases her. “I’m glad you’re staying here to do something important,” he says. She stares at Nathan as he walks in. He walks over and talks in French. Mel introduces him to her brother and Max guesses he is why she’s staying. Max teases his sister and Nathan walks away. “Are you freakin’ kidding me?” he asks his sister. He doesn’t think that she should be making abrupt life choices whenever she meets a cute boy. She argues that she can’t screw up Nathan’s life, but she could screw up his if she moved in with him and Chelsea. He gives her an open-ended ticket to London anyway. She cries and tells him he’s the best brother in the world. “You’re the most uh… interesting sister,” he says. They hug and he wishes her well on her boy hunt.
