Meanwhile EJ learns Melanie has left Salem, thwarting his plans to reunite Chad with her. When EJ learns Rafe successfully completed his demands, he heads to Sami’s feigning ignorance of Rafe’s actions. As Sami breaks down, EJ is offers just the kind of comfort she needs – just as he planned.

When Chad shows up demanding an update, he almost exposes EJ’s blackmail!

With nothing more to lose, Chad prepares to unleash his DiMera wrath on a vulnerable Gabi.

Rafe interrupts EJ and Sami’s intimate moment, dying to expose EJ’s machinations but can’t because of Gabi. He used a moment alone with Sami to again remind her that EJ is not the man for her. Tired of Rafe’s inconsistent behavior, Sami demands an explanation from him but gets none. EJ and Sami return home to find an upset Chad, furious that Gabi won’t pay for her crimes. EJ departs with Chad from Sami’s place to the Horton Square, where he learns that because of Chad’s deal with Nick, Gabi cannot be exposed! And just who happens to overhear this convo? Sami!

EJ is livid to learn his leverage over Rafe is gone and can’t be undone! Meanwhile Sami confronts Chad about what she overheard and is able to piece together that EJ is blackmailing Rafe. Chad realizes EJ had his own agenda all along! The young Dimera races to confront his older brother and tells him that Sami has figured everything out. EJ panics and tries to find Sami but is too late, she’s already found Rafe. Sami and Rafe come together in a passionate kiss just as a horrified EJ arrives to see!
