Sami hides the reason for her upset, and after they leave, Sami goes to Roman and asks him to get some information about Meredith and family. Kate pilfers Chloe's cell phone before she's discharged from the hospital. Later, Kate poisons the brownies on the talk show set, and plans for Chloe's demise to occur on Daniel's last day of taping. Chloe and Daniel have a private conversation in Maggie's kitchen in which Chloe realizes that Daniel is not seeing another woman. She confesses her feverous dreams of him and her feeling that she will never love Lucas the way he deserves to be loved. When Daniel learns Chloe got sick again, he refuses to leave Salem until he figures out what's wrong. Chloe is moved to beg him to stay. She blurts that her near-death experience convinced her she should leave Lucas. She loves Daniel and wants to be with him forever. They kiss. Meanwhile, Kate uses Chloe's cell phone to place a call to Maggie, who hears Kate's spliced-together tape and becomes alarmed at what sounds like Daniel making a veiled threat toward Chloe. Philip throws himself into life after Stephanie. They run into each other at the hospital, and Stephanie realizes that Philip's on the hospital board, and won't be as "out of sight, out of mind" as she was hoping. Stephanie and Nathan bond a bit, but she is clearly not looking for love in the near future. She wishes him a nice dinner with Melanie. Later, Melanie and Nathan's date has hardly begun before he's paged back to the hospital. Arianna talks to Melanie while she waits, and we see Melanie's torn between nice guy Nathan and her attraction for bad boy Philip.
