Bo confronts Stefano, but gets nowhere fast. He goes to the Java CafÃ© where he runs into Justin, who warns Bo that Carly has only come to Salem to breakup his marriage. Earlier, Justin tries to sand bag Carly's chances of a position at Salem University Hospital, but his attempts are thwarted when he learns Carly and Daniel are old friends. In fact, Carly introduced Daniel to his late wife, Rebecca. They catch up and Daniel tells Justin he didn't appreciate what he was trying to do. Later, Daniel thinks Carly has a good shot at the position and she reflects on what Justin said concerning her more than friendly feelings for Bo. Later Bo tells her that Justin told him "everything" and she nervously blurts out that it's not true. Sami wants to be the one to trap Stefano into admitting that he has Sydney. EJ is on board with her confronting him at first, but later thinks it might be too dangerous. Rafe arrives and thinks it's a great idea for Sami to get Stefano, and says she should wear a wire. They convince EJ, and Sami goes into the DiMera mansion ready to confront Stefano while EJ and Rafe wait outside.
