Max (Darin Brooks
) is at the coffee house on today's Days of our Lives
. Philip (Jay Kenneth Johnson
) joins him so that they can discuss the shipping wars that are going on down at the docks. Max wants nothing to do with the Kiriakis versus DiMera turf war. Philip asks Max what he knows about Morgan Hollingsworth, the daughter of the customs guy whom John Black has in his pocket.
Stephanie (Shelley Hennig
) and Morgan (Kristen Renton) stop by with flowers and chocolate for Chelsea (Rachel Melvin
). Chelsea might be able to go home from the hospital today, but she doesn't look too happy about it. Lexie (Renee Jones
) checks in on Bo, who has been having fitful dreams about Hope. He tries calling her, but her phone goes straight to voicemail. That's because Hope is still being held captive by Ava.
Kate Roberts (Lauren Koslow
) stops by at Tony's (Thaao Penghlis
) office to announce that she's decided to go with him to handle her company's advertising. Just as the words are out of her mouth, Anna calls Kate to inquire if she's made a decision yet. Kate tells her that she's going with Tony for the majority of her company.
Max is wary about Philip's motives regarding Morgan. He warns Philip not to mess with Morgan or use her to get to her father. Max leaves, and Stephanie and Morgan show up at the coffee house for some pre-internship mocha lattes. Philip swoops in and pays for them. He says that he is treating them to coffee as an apology for treating Morgan's father so rudely. The girls settle in with their coffee, gossiping about their internship bosses' love lives. A random professor finds them and informs them that in order for them to get full academic credit for their internships, they will be filmed by communications majors who are making a documentary about their internships.
Morgan shows up to work with her cameraman to find Tony and Kate in a compromising position - Tony accidentally spilled his celebratory drink on her blouse and is helping her clean it up. The film crews are not hits with either Tony or Anna. Philip and Max, who show up to visit Tony and Stephanie, respectively, don't like the cameras either. Philip wants Tony to handle some kind of advertising for the Kiriakis shipping. I'm not really sure what's going on here. I just zone out whenever Days of our Lives
doesn't have sexy, exciting things like infidelity or plane crashes, honestly.
Bo (Peter Reckell
) keeps trying all of Hope's numbers and gets increasingly worried about her. He calls Caroline and learns that Hope hasn't gone over there to pick up Sierra. The nurse wheels Chelsea into the room so that she can say hi for the first time the pancreatic transplant. Bo thanks Chelsea for her hugely kind gesture. I wonder if Hallmark makes a "Thanks for giving me your pancreas" card.
Abe (James Reynolds
) sneaks away from the police station to have an impromptu meeting with Lexie. They complain about how their demanding jobs prevent them from spending any time with each other.
Hope (Kristian Alfonso
), pretending to be Kayla, questions Ava about what she wants. Ava lays down the law, saying that Hope isn't going anywhere, until Steve shows up and joins them. Ava wants to win Steve back, and then she'll let Hope go. Hope questions her about the plane crash, and calls her crazy. This is obviously a sore spot for Ava because she gets prickly whenever anyone calls her crazy. Hope tries sympathetically to convince Ava that she's a smart, strong woman and that she doesn't need a man to complete her. This flies right over Ava's nutty head, though. Ava plans to get Steve over there by making Hope call him and convince him to come.
Next on Days of our Lives
: There might be something wrong with Chelsea, Chloe has an audition, Bo sneaks out of bed and faces Lexie's wrath.
