Johnny runs to Sami and clings to her. Sami sees the warning look in EJ's eyes and without speaking to Johnny gently moves him away from her. EJ moves off with upset Johnny, and Nicole follows with Sydney. Sami cries in Rafe's arms. Back at the loft, Sami tells Rafe no more tears â€“ she'll find a way to get through this. Rafe confides to Gabi that while Sami is putting a good face on things, he fears something bad will happen. Later, Sami comforts Allie, and vows she will fix everything. Alone with EJ, Nicole lashes out at him for his treatment of Sami as well as herself.

She tells Brady of her decision, but he refuses to let her walk away. Later, Johnny is still upset over Sami's rejection, and EJ assures him that he will always love him.
