EJ informs Philip he has Stephanie. At first Philip doesn't believe him and he rails on EJ, telling him this feud is between them, not their loved ones. EJ disagrees. Philip has his father and he'll do anything he can to get him back including taking Stephanie. EJ proves to Philip that he has her and gives a list of his demands. Philip says he can't release Stefano and EJ thinks he will if he wants to see Stephanie again. EJ tears up the contract for Titan to buy DiMera industries, saying it's null and void. EJ returns to the DiMera mansion convinced his father will come home alive. Meanwhile, Philip calls Victor saying the DiMeras have Stephanie. Philip meets with his father to plea for Stefano's release for Stephanie and Victor says no. At the morgue, Owen opens the drawer for Stephanie, who plays calm. She realizes Owen's a bit sweet on her. She also learns it's the DiMeras who have kidnapped her. Stephanie tries to scare Owen at first, and then tries to sweet talk him. Later, she convinces Owen to let her out of the drawer and she knees him in the groin. Just as she is about to escape, her cell rings and thinking its Philip, she answers to EJ. Stephanie cries for help and EJ reacts. Arianna accidentally spills hot coffee on Brady and she attends to the burn. Melanie arrives and checks it out and says he'll live.

Arianna is intrigued to learn that Brady's not a fan of Sami either. Meanwhile, Melanie is considering posting Stephanie's stray earring online for auction, but decides against it. She leaves a message for Stephanie telling her she has her earring. Later, Brady offers praise on her decision, but a miffed Melanie can't believe she hasn't heard from Stephanie.
