YOU’RE NOT SORRY/HAUNTED

Rafe learns about Nicole’s loss from Daniel and privately grieves with her. Meanwhile a slightly drunken EJ has a confrontation with Sami. He deduces Rafe is at the hospital with Nicole and takes off. EJ arrives just in time to overhear the truth – he is the father of Nicole’s child!
EJ sneaks out unnoticed and arranges for a DNA test to be scheduled. Soon after EJ’s world comes crashing down when a nurse accidentally reveals the baby died. After Rafe leaves, EJ enters Nicole’s room, secretly recording their conversation. Surprisingly EJ is kind to her as they bond over the loss. While EJ is working a sedated Nicole, Rafe returns home and tells Sami about what happened. At the hospital, Nicole opens up a bit when EJ promises to make Jennifer pay. He appeals to Nicole to tell him the truth. With nothing else to lose (or gain) by keeping this secret, Nicole admits the truth to EJ. With proof of Nicole and Rafe’s deception, EJ races to confront Rafe.
Rafe stops himself him making love to Sami, feeling the guilt of his lies. Sami reconfirms her belief in Rafe and they prepare to try again, only for EJ to interrupt. Sami stands by Rafe as EJ confronts him about his lies…until EJ drops the bombshell of the recording. Rafe finally comes clean and defiantly admits he’d do it again! Proud of himself for exposing Rafe, EJ takes off. Sami is disappointed and heartbroken by Rafe’s actions and lays into him for his deceit. Though Rafe believes they can get past this, Sami feels otherwise and takes off. It looks like Rafe didn’t love Sami more than he hated EJ after all.
