On today's episode of Days of our Lives
, EJ (James Scott
) walks up to Stefano's door. He can't get in the mansion because Stefano had the locks changed. Rolf informs EJ that Stefano is not home, and no one is allowed in while he's not there. Just a wild guess, I'm think it has something to do with Dr. Frankenstein's monster whom we were shown glimpses of on yesterday's Days of our Lives
Sami (Alison Sweeney
) is at her wits' end looking for Lucas (Bryan Dattilo
). She calls Roman (Josh Taylor
) over, who tells her that he's put out an APB on Lucas and Kate (Lauren Koslow
Stephanie (Shelley Hennig
) is home alone and Max (Darin Brooks
) shows up and asks her to breakfast. She's very curt with him. He wants to know what's going on, and she breaks down in tears.
Chelsea (Rachel Melvin
) and Nick (Blake Berris
) are having a cozy morning in the sorority house. Chelsea even suggests that they might be ready to have sex too. But they are rudely interrupted by Ford Decker's father who comes barging in looking for his son.
Roman promises Sami that they'll find Lucas, but when they do, he'll have to arrest him for attempted murder.
EJ digs around through Stefano's stuff, but an unknown person dressed in black hits him from behind. EJ falls to the ground. We don't ever see the person's face.
Chelsea tells Ford's father that his son was a rapist. Mr. Decker wonders if that "was" was deliberate on Chelsea's part and that Ford is no longer a rapist. He asks her what she did to his son. Nick calls Billie, and while she's on her way, Ford's father wants to scour the house for evidence.
Max finally suspects that maybe Ford may have hurt Stephanie.
Sami pleads with Roman not to arrest Lucas. Why doesn't she let him look for him first?
Stefano comes into the living room to find EJ lying on the ground. He says it was his houseguest who hit him. By the way, may I please just comment that EJ's recovery is bordering on miraculously fast? Even if he weren't shot in the spine, wouldn't it take a long time to recover from a gunshot wound? It's been like barely a month and he's already skipping down the street. EJ wants to know what Stefano meant when he said that Johnny would be taken care of. Before they get into a full-fledged argument, Rolf comes in to say that their guest almost left the house. Stefano is furious.
Roman promises to send a car for Sami as soon as he finds Lucas.
Just as Max asks Stephanie if Ford forced himself onto her, Chelsea calls Stephanie to ask for their help. At the sorority house, Ford's father asks Chelsea where the basement is, and just as he's about to go downstairs, Billie (Julie Pinson
) shows up and forbids him from searching any buildings on the campus without a search warrant. Ford's father knows a lot about their family history, and accuses Billie of covering for Chelsea, just like she did when Zach died. Billie chooses to ignore his comment, and instead, shares with him the surveillance camera footage from outside of the sorority house. But Ford's father is worried because you can't see his face as he's leaving the house.
Stephanie tells Max that she wants to come clean about Ford's death to Bo.
EJ eavesdrops on Stefano telling his houseguest not to leave the premises. EJ then asks Stefano who the houseguest, but Stefano is not telling. Rolf tells Stefano that a warrant has been placed for Lucas' arrest for shooting EJ. Stefano is furious to hear that it may have been Lucas who shot his son.
EJ goes over to Sami's. She's not really surprised to see him walking because she thinks he was lying all along. She also thinks Stefano was behind everything. But he's glad to see that she hasn't run off with their son. He asks her to forgive him and to let their son form his own opinion of EJ.
Chelsea lies to Billie and Nick about not knowing anything about Ford. On the sly, she calls Stephanie and Max to get over there right away. They need to move the body before Ford's father comes back with a search warrant.
Rolf runs down the stairs in a panic to tell Stefano that their houseguest is gone.
EJ promises to help Sami find Lucas before the police do.
Next on Days of our Lives
