Days Of Our Lives Recaps
DAYS Week of May 31, 2010
At the Kiriakis mansion, Vivian tossed her bouquet. Carly caught it — just as Hope walked in with Ciara. Bo pulled her aside and told Hope about Vivian's surprise wedding to Victor. Ciara noted that Carly caught the bouquet and asked Bo if he was going to marry Carly. Awkward! Ciara wanted to hold the flowers. Hope and Bo went outside to talk.... Justin chatted with Carly, who told him about her weird encounter on the pier with Hope. Carly asked if Justin had noticed a change in Hope. He said Hope seemed more stressed than usual. He added that it couldn't have been easy for Hope to walk in and see Carly with the bouquet.... Bo and Hope talked about Ciara's lying. Hope mentioned the treasure box Ciara thought she had. Ciara heard them and said, "You do have the box, Mommy. I saw it." Bo questioned her further. Ciara insisted she wasn't lying and stormed off. Bo wondered if Ciara was telling the truth. Hope was offended, but suggested they go upstairs and look under her bed. Bo found a box, which mystified Hope. He opened it.
Brady bid his grandfather farewell so he could go visit Arianna. Nicole saw that he was leaving and told him that Ari was meeting with her lawyer so he should stay. They chatted with Daniel and Chloe. After, Brady decided to go anyway. Nicole ran after him. Victor pulled Daniel away. Carly approached Chloe, who was panicked that Dr. M was going to spill the beans. Carly just wanted to make sure Melanie was included in Daniel and Chloe's wedding plans, but urged Chloe to tell Daniel the truth about her one-night stand. She warned Chloe that secrets come back to haunt you.... Victor counseled Daniel not to rush into marriage with Chloe. Daniel didn't think Vic should be giving advice, seeing as how he just married Vivian. Viv overheard their exchange. After, Victor talked to Maggie. He asked why she convinced everyone to stay for the wedding. Because these people love you, Maggie explained. "What about you?" Victor wondered. Before a surprised Mags could respond, the bride interrupted and asked Vic to take a photo with her. Maggie headed home and cried as she spoke to a photo of Mickey. Victor arrived to check on her. She was touched.
On the terrace at the K manse, Philip and Melanie talked. She called him the perfect husband. He flashed back to having sex with Chloe. Before he could say anything, Carly came out to talk to Mel. Phil excused himself. Melanie admitted to her mom that she didn't trust Chloe and didn't want Daniel marrying her. "I have this awful feeling that she's really gonna hurt him," Mel explained.... Phil checked in with Chloe and congratulated her. They both kicked themselves for believing Melanie and Daniel were cheaters. Phil said he never wanted to lose Melanie, which his wife overheard and asked him to explain. He quickly covered.
Vivian searched for her hubby, but found Carly instead. They traded barbs. Kate came upon them and offered Carly a friendly ear. The conversation turned to Chloe. Kate revealed that Chloe had cheated on Lucas and wasn't to be trusted.... Daniel was called to the hospital. Carly told Chloe they had to talk in light of the new information she learned. She told Chloe she knew it wasn't the first time Chloe had cheated. Chloe realized Kate opened up her mouth. Carly felt like she had to tell Daniel the truth and walked out. Chloe was upset. Vivian offered to help.
Dr. Baker watched Nicole on the news, reporting Arianna's arrest. Baker flashed back to planting the bogus evidence to implicate Ari. He worried what Hope would do when she found out and decided to hit the road.... At the station, Ari met with Joanne, her public defender. Joanne admitted she didn't have a lot to work with.... EJ listened to Nicole's broadcast via laptop at the Brady Pub. "Rubbish," he said, then headed out. He arrived at the cop shop and offered to represent Arianna. She agreed. He told her he believed in her innocence.... On the pier, Baker approached Nicole. He asked her for money, but she said no way. He threatened to spill about framing Ari.... Brady entered the room where EJ was with Ari and spied her hand in his.
Stephanie joined Nathan at the Pub. He told her he had been offered a research fellowship at Johns Hopkins. She asked if he was going to take it. He wondered if she would go to Baltimore with him, but wasn't sure if they were at that point in their relationship yet. He then decided that he was happy with his life in Salem and would stay. Philip and Melanie arrived at the Pub. They said hi to Nathan and Mel and told them about the nups. Once alone, Steph and Mel bickered again over Nathan. Steph got a call from Kayla and went outside. Nathan returned. Melanie asked if it was true that he turned down Johns Hopkins to be with Steph. He said it was for a lot of reasons. Outside, Philip queried Steph about her plan to trap Nathan by getting pregnant. Steph couldn't believe Melanie blabbed to him about it. He noted that Melanie didn't tell Nathan. She scoffed that if Mel did, it would look like she was still into Nathan. Philip got testy. They headed back inside. Nathan said he and Stephanie had to leave.
Sami answered the door at the DiMera manse to a panicked Gabi, who was looking for Rafe. She explained Arianna was in trouble. Sami apologized and said that he was on an undercover assignment and she couldn't reach him. Gabi asked if Sami could talk to Roman on Ari's behalf. Sami was sure Roman was on it. Gabi got annoyed that Sami wouldn't make the call. "You think Ari's guilty, don't you?" asked the teen. Sami noted that she never said that, but Gabi wouldn't listen and stormed out. Sami left Rafe a message, telling him that Ari needed him.
Brady walked into the interrogation room to find Ari's hand in EJ's. She explained that EJ was her lawyer. "He believes I'm innocent," she added. EJ excused himself so they could be alone. Brady insisted to Ari that he believed in her. She didn't think so and told him she needed to focus on her case. EJ returned and revealed that he had her arraignment moved up and it would be in two hours. She needed something to wear. Brady offered to get something, but she said Gabi could do it. He insisted he would and refused to give up on her. Once alone, EJ and Arianna went over her case and the times of the attacks. She realized she had an alibi for one of them: She was with Nicole. EJ wondered why Nicole hadn't put it together already. Ari cried that it was the first moment she had hope since they brought her in and thanked EJ. He took off. Sami came in after he left and checked in on Arianna. She told Sami that EJ was representing her and Brady wasn't too thrilled about it.
On the pier, Nicole warned Dr. Baker not to threaten her for cash. She asked where the wallets he stole were. He explained that his partner had them. Nic urged him to get rid of them and demanded to know who he was working with. He refused to give up Hope's name.
Bo and Hope opened the "treasure box" but it was empty. That's because Ciara had all of the wallets in her backpack. Hope felt it proved Ciara was lying. Bo wasn't so sure. He put his arm on Hope to comfort her. She asked him not to. He insisted he cared about her, but she didn't want to hear it. "When you say things like that, it's painful for me," she explained and suggested they just focus on Ciara. Bo said he would take their daughter home so he could spend some time with her. After he and Ciara left, Hope popped a pill.
Carly came upon an excited Daniel at the hospital. He explained he was marrying Chloe the next day. She couldn't mask her disapproval. He asked her what was up. She was reluctant to speak at first, so he pressed her to reveal what her problem was. She was about to tell him when his pager went off. She said she would wait, but he told her not to. "I am going to marry Chloe tomorrow. End of discussion," he declared.
Chloe chatted with Vivian at the Kiriakis manse. Vivian offered to help Chloe get rid of Carly for good. Chloe claimed that she didn't have a problem with Carly and left. She ran into Nicole on the pier. Nic could tell something was wrong. Chloe said that she feared when her secret came out, Daniel would never forgive her. Nicole urged her to marry Daniel ASAP then. Chloe headed home, where she was confronted by Carly, who insisted Chloe talk to Daniel that night. She urged her to be honest and pointed out that Daniel would probably forgive her. She said if Chloe didn't tell Daniel, Carly would. She left. Daniel came home with flowers and told Chloe they would be married that next night. She turned it around and said she worked it out so they could be married in Brookville immediately. He thought it was a great idea, but wanted Melanie to be there, so he asked if they could wait. She smiled like everything was fine, but when he left, wasn't so sure. "I don't want to lose you, Daniel. I have to find a way to stop Carly," she sighed.
Brady ran into Nicole on the pier. He told her he was fetching clothes for Arianna. Nicole replied that she would be at the Cheatin' Heart if he needed to talk. After he left, Nicole vowed to get Brady for herself once Ari was locked away. Nicole headed to the bar and sat at a table. She felt a hand on her shoulder. She happily assumed it was Brady, only to see it was EJ. He said he knew what she did to Arianna.
Victor sat with a weepy Maggie in her kitchen and comforted her. She said she missed Mickey, adding it was the second wedding he had been to since he died. "The more time that passes, the more often that I think, ‘Do I still remember the sound of his voice? Or the touch of his hand in mine?' " she sighed. Victor promised nobody would ever forget Mickey. His cell phone rang: It was his wife. "What?" he snapped. "Victor, where the hell are you?" Viv asked. Maggie excused herself to check her e-mail. Vic told his bride he was at Maggie's. Vivian demanded he come home. He refused and bid her goodnight. After, he and Maggie resumed their chat and he offered to create a scholarship in Mickey's honor. Maggie was thrilled. At the mansion, a lonely Vivian walked on the terrace and laughed through her tears at being alone on her wedding night.
Ciara and Bo arrived home to find Carly waiting. "Hi, Carly," Ciara said unenthusiastically. Carly asked Bo what happened with Hope. He admitted that things were taking a toll on Hope and Ciara. He went to call Caroline. Carly asked Ciara if she could read a book to her and reached for the child's knapsack. Ciara clutched it to her, saying they were her secrets.
Hope got dressed up in her nighttime gear and called Baker. "Up for some fun tonight?" she asked. She said she wanted to do serious damage — and knew exactly where they could go.
Vivian told Gus about the wedding. She was thrilled to report that Chloe believed Carly was trying to ruin her life and the timing was right to take action against Dr. Manning. Viv's phone rang: It was Chloe. She then came to the mansion. Vivian offered to help her with her Carly situation. Viv was reminded that Carly was very claustrophobic and got an idea. She gave Chloe a number of someone who could help "give Carly exactly what she deserves." Chloe wanted more information, but Vivian simply told her to have Carly at the exact elevator at the exact time. Chloe realized that the end result would be Carly dying and got spooked.
Daniel found Melanie and Philip at the Pub and revealed he was marrying Chloe the next day. "No!" exclaimed Mel. Daniel was surprised by her strong reaction and asked if something else was going on. She downplayed it and said she just thought it was very sudden. Daniel tried to make her see how happy he was. "I just hope that Chloe doesn't hurt you," Mel told him. He insisted it wouldn't happen. Daniel asked Philip to walk Chloe down the aisle. Awkward! Phil agreed to do it. Daniel took off.
Arianna had a tearful conversation with her mom about her arrest. At the Cheatin' Heart, EJ confronted Nicole over what she did to Arianna, causing Nic to spill her drink. "You're letting her rot in jail for something you know she didn't do," he concluded. He added that Ari had an alibi — Nicole. He explained that Ari was with Nicole during Justin's attack and believed Nicole was setting her up to take the rap. Nicole insisted she was innocent and denied his accusations.
Brady ran into Caroline outside the Pub and revealed that Vivian and Victor had married. She became apoplectic. After, he went to visit Ari and asked how things were. She said she was optimistic, but couldn't talk about the case. The guard kicked Brady out since it was after visiting hours. EJ arrived and reported to Ari that Nicole was going to check out the dates of the attacks to see if she could back up Ari's account.... A frustrated Nicole was hoping Ari got the dates wrong. Brady came to the Pub. Nicole told him that she might have a way to exonerate Arianna.
Ciara wouldn't show Carly what was in her backpack because that's where she hid the stolen wallets. She told Carly to stay away from her. Bo came in and asked what was going on. Carly left. Ciara explained that Carly was trying to take her secret treasures. Bo asked what they were. She said she would show them to him. He opened the backpack, but the pocket was empty. Before he could get to the second one, there was a knock at the door: It was Caroline, still furious over the nups news. Bo tried to calm her down. Ciara took her grandmother into the kitchen to bake cookies.
Hope called Baker and told him to meet her on the pier. She approached him with a gun, angry that he framed Arianna against her wishes. She revealed she was done with the muggings and planned to go after her real target: Bo. They arrived at the Brady house, where she saw Ciara about to show Bo her treasures.
Carly ran into Daniel on the pier. She apologized for getting in his face earlier about Chloe. He accepted the apology and revealed that he told Chloe about his wedding plans. Carly asked about Chloe's response. Daniel said she wanted to elope that night, which troubled Dr. M.
Carly got on Daniel's case about marrying Chloe. She didn't understand their rush to elope. Daniel didn't think it was any of Carly's business. "I am marrying Chloe and there's nothing you can say about it!" he spat. Not wanting to ruin their friendship, Carly agreed the subject was closed.
"You want me to kill Carly?" gasped Chloe. Vivian swore she didn't say that. She just hated Carly ruining committed relationships and thought they could guide Carly into another world. Vivian just needed Chloe to get Carly onto the elevator, insisting she had to be stopped. Chloe refused to do Vivian's dirty work and left.
Chloe returned home and thought about the fact she was actually considering killing someone. She realized she had to ‘fess up to Daniel. When Daniel arrived home, Chloe confessed all: she had sex with Philip, because she thought he'd had sex with Carly. Daniel erupted and said they were finished. It was just a fantasy, but it made Chloe realize she couldn't tell Daniel the truth. Chloe remembered Vivian giving her the assassin's phone number, when the phone rang and it was Carly, reminding her to come clean to Daniel. Chloe hung up and started to dial the assassin.
Ciara called out to Bo, wanting to show him her treasures. Hope and Baker watched through the window as she held the stolen wallets. Baker had an idea and headed off. Suddenly, Bo heard an alarm and headed upstairs. Caroline called Ciara to the kitchen, and Hope snuck into the house, swiped the wallets, and ran out. Bo returned and went through Ciara's backpack. It was empty. Ciara told Caroline her treasures were gone, but swore they were there before. Caroline gave the tyke her mother's rosary. Ciara ran off to put it away. Bo fretted about what was going on with Ciara. Hope complained to Baker about having a headache. She wondered why he was still there. He said it was because she was there. Hope was touched he cared. Ciara came back downstairs and asked Bo if he knew what happened to her treasures. He didn't, but told Ciara he had a treasure of his own and went off to fetch it. While Hope and Baker bonded outside, Ciara watched them through the window.
Victor was at Maggie's discussing his marriage to Vivian. Maggie said she'd respect their wedding vows even if he didn't. She didn't want Victor coming over and complaining about the old ball and chain and urged him to head home to his bride. Later, Victor arrived home and found Vivian carrying a bag. She'd packed for their honeymoon. Victor grumbled, noting he hoped this trip was about wanting to be alone with him and not needing an alibi. Victor warned that if anything happened to Carly, Vivian would find out the true meaning of "til death do us part." Vivian swore she'd never hurt Carly.
Daniel showed Maggie the ring he got Chloe. He wondered if she thought it was okay he was marrying Chloe. Maggie wondered if he was getting cold feet. Daniel assured he wasn't, but said not everyone thought this was a marriage made in heaven. Maggie gave him her blessing. Daniel smiled, vowing to make Chloe his wife.
Stephanie and Nathan were sitting in bed, when she suggested they move in together. Nathan seemed taken aback, but said it was an option. Later, after some lovemaking, Nathan was summoned back to the hospital. He told Steph about a young patient named Ben with heart trouble. Steph said Nathan would make a great father someday. Steph met Adrienne at the Cheatin' Heart and went on about a friend who might be pregnant. She admitted it was her and that she'd stopped taking her birth control pills. Adrienne suggested the morning after pill. Steph thanked her.
Melanie was concerned about Daniel and Chloe eloping. Philip suggested they stay out of their lives. Melanie persisted. Philip said Melanie had to accept Chloe wasn't like her or Carly. Nathan arrived and told Melanie about little Ben's condition. Melanie gave him a hug. After Nathan left, Philip told Melanie he understood her relationship with Nathan. They had an intense job and worked closely together. Nathan returned to his place, where Steph had just taken the morning after pill. He found the empty medicine box and asked what it was.
Today's episode was pre-empted.
