Air Date: 4/2/07
Director: Albert Alarr
Summary: Kayla urges Max to go for it with Abby…while Jack orders Abby to stay away from Max…EJ is devastated over Sami’s news, but Celeste is sure he is playing her…Philip and Kate question Gabby about Shawn and Belle, but she protects them.
On the plane…
They talk about what happened as Kayla says she now has the proof she needs and they toast burying EJ Wells. He talks about how much he misses Frankie and how he is lost without him around. Kayla can identify, saying she felt the same as when she lost Steve. Max jokes that Frankie is NOT the love of HIS life. He talks about finding that someone special and Kayla asks if that could be Abby Deveraux. Max is a bit embarrassed about it but Kayla thinks Abby could be good for him. She asks about Mimi and he says they have both moved on. He talks about how he has never felt this way before and it’s a bit scary, but Abby is different. He talks about how he screwed up other relationships but Kayla assures him that he will be okay. He talks about how innocent Abby is, but Kayla says taking it slow is a good thing. He is only afraid he may break her heart. She tells him that he needs to go to Abby and tell her everything but he is unsure. An announcement is made that the plane will be landing at JFK in 15 minutes. Kayla says it’s his decision…he can stay on the plane with his sister…or he can go and find the love of his life.
At her Hotel…
The new Abby (played by Emily Montegue) is on the phone talking about how wonderful her trip is (not sure who with) when there is a knock at the door and she opens it to be surprised by her dad, yes, it’s Jack. She hugs him, telling him she loves him. He talks about meeting some singer in the elevator (acting like he didn’t know who it was) and we learn it was Gwen Stefani. He even got her autograph. Jack offers a carriage ride in the park, but Abby thinks that may be for lovers. Jack says, speaking of that, he talked to her Aunt Maggie and knows about Max. He isn’t too happy about it, but Abby swears they are just hanging out and having fun. Jack wants to know what KIND of fun, but then decides he doesn’t want to know. She swears it’s innocent and says she knows about Max’s past and that is just what it is…his past. Jack tries to discourage her but she is determined that Max is the one. He says he and Jennifer talked about it and both agree, they want her to get her education…and it’s not just Max, but don’t want her distracted by any guy. They want her to enjoy her college life. Abby says if it will make them happy, then she promises that Max will not interfere with her education. They hug and then decide to go down to Times Square as Jack goes to change. Abby gets a phone call from Max asking about her trip. She talks about how her and her dad are having a great time. He tells her about taking a trip with Kayla and they had a layover at JFK. Abby is a bit bummed that he was in New York and didn’t see him. Just then, there is a knock at the door and she opens it to find him standing there. She is excited to see him and they hug, but then she tells him he has to go, because her dad will think she planned it this way. Too late…Jack is at the door knocking.
On the Island…
Philip questions Gabby as Shawn watches and listens nearby. Kate is there as well, complaining about having to hitch a ride on a chicken truck (as she brushes away feathers, lol). Philip shows Gabby a picture of Belle and Shawn, but Gabby says she hasn’t seen them. Kate and Philip talk about checking elsewhere as Shawn sneaks back up to the room and warns Belle that they have to get out of there. They rush around packing as Belle worries that it all depends on what Gabby tells them. Gabby covers for Shawn and Belle, but Philip isn’t convinced. Kate goes to the bar to help herself to a drink and finds a teething ring. Gabby makes up a story about a neighbor kid, but Philip calls her a liar. Belle and Shawn continue t pack as Shawn says he can distract them if she and Claire make a getaway. And he will join them later, but she refuses to be separated from him. Philip grabs Gabby and shakes her demanding the truth as she finally calls him a jerk and tells them that yes, Belle, Shawn and Claire were there, but they are gone now. Kate has to drag Philip away from her as Gabby continues to tell them that Shawn and Belle are gone. Shawn has sneaked back downstairs to see what is going on as Gabby whips out the ring and shows it to Philip, telling him that they left it with her as payment on their debt. Upstairs, Belle remembers that she never got her ring back. Gabby tells Philip that Shawn, Belle and Claire are long gone and there is his proof.
A dejected EJ was so sure that he was the father and tells Sami that he is in shock. He talks about how he wanted to be a father so bad and has himself a pity party. She says she is only happy that he won’t be a part of her life and for him to just get over it. He tells her that it is her loss as well. She says that this is the best news she could have gotten and tells him she has things to do…like plan a wedding. EJ talks about how Stefano told him about Tony’s weakness for the ladies and he was determined that he wouldn’t make that mistake, but his feelings for Sami were real. She agrees that maybe once, long ago, she felt that way too, but not after she found out who he really was…and he shot John…and raped her. She says that now she knows Lucas is the father and they are done forever…and nothing will ever connect them again. EJ reminds her that if he hadn’t picked her up on that road, there would be no wedding, for Lucas would be dead. She only wants one thing from him…to forget that they ever made that deal. As they go to shake on it, he grabs her hand and kisses it, talking about what could have been. On his way out the door, he says she is the only woman in the world that could have made him into what she thought he was in the beginning. After he leaves, Celeste comes by. Sami tells her that EJ bought it, but Celeste says she doesn’t have a clue about what is going on. She says he played her like a violin but Sami thinks his feelings were genuine. Celeste says he was just playing her and she bought it. Sami says it is over now but Celeste says she is being foolish…it is only the beginning…she must either destroy EJ Wells or he will destroy her. She warns her to be afraid for her child. But Sami doesn’t want to hear it when Celeste warns her he will be back for her baby. Sami asks her to leave as Celeste tells her to consider it. Sami tells her he is out of her life now and she would prefer Celeste stay out of it as well as she slams the door.
Later, EJ is in a bar when Kayla calls him. She tells him she has been in Italy. He tries to get rid of her, but she tells him that she now has the proof to put him away forever…then she tells “Elvis” to enjoy his evening and hangs up. He rushes out of the bar. Kayla holds a picture of Steve, telling him that EJ will not hurt their family again.
At Chez Rouge…
Nick is agonizing over his decision. Maggie asks him what is wrong and he tells her how a friend asked him to do something and he did, but now another friend is asking a favor, but he turned them down. He is upset because he didn’t help the second one. He says he could have, easily, but didn’t know if he should have. Maggie tells him that a true friend would never ask him to compromise his principles. Later he goes back to the lab, seeming to have made up his mind to take the brush. He argues with himself over it, but eventually goes on inside…only to find EJ at his work station. Nick goes to call security, but EJ takes the phone and not-so-subtly threatens to strangle him with the cord, then leaves as Nick gulps. In the hallway, EJ stops to place a call and leave a message for Lucas, saying he is a doctor at University Hospital. He says that he needs to come in…there was a problem with Samantha Brady’s amnio…as the previews show…
Philip (to Gabby): Which is why I am not leaving here until I know for a fact that you are telling the truth…
Lucas (to EJ): Why don’t you just get over it?... (EJ): Get over WHAT?... (Lucas): Your sick obsession with Sami, that’s what…
Sami (to Nick): There is NO WAY this baby is EJ’s…(Nick): No way?... (Sami): It is totally and completely impossible…
Steve (holding Kayla down): Stay away from those people…(Kalya): Get off me!...Stop it!...as he kisses her…
And the credits roll…
Dear Early Edition Readers:
It is with heavy hearts and great sorrow that we announce that today will be the final EARLY EDITION for us. As long time followers remember, we started our day ahead spoilers over ten years ago when we started posting on discussion boards, Dustin’s website and then got our own permanent home. Over the years, we have enjoyed hearing from so many of you from around the world as to how our summaries kept you abreast of our Salemites' storylines.
Unfortunately, the time has come and we have unanimously decided to say goodbye. Unlike when we started the day ahead summaries, today’s technology with DVR’s/TIVOs and lots of other DOOL websites and recaps on the internet, it has become easier for anyone to record or read what’s going on without us. We appreciate all of your accolades about our thoroughness in reporting the storylines, but that thoroughness means, rising earlier, a few hours of watching, typing up and posting…time that we just can’t spare anymore. To be honest, the storylines aren’t grabbing our attention that much anymore either, and even we aren’t always watching when it’s not our own day to do a summary.
We want to say thanks to Jenn, the webmaster of the SALEM PLACE DISCUSSION BOARD for providing an alternate site for posting our summaries over the years. We’ve all made many friends there and will continue to frequent her site. We also thank Dustin for posting our summaries in the earlier days and for continuing to provide links to both Early Edition and Salem Place Discussion Board on his site.
So, friends and fans…thank you very much for visiting our site over the years…it’s been a blast! Please don’t email asking for us to change our minds, because we won’t. We’ve removed our email addresses from the site as well. We’ll leave the site up for reference to our archives.
And last but not least…NO, this is not an April Fool’s joke…sadly, this is for real. Sometimes, LIFE just happens! Thanks to all of you...you have made it all worthwhile. For the show that brought us all together, we wish continued success in the future.
Barb, Laney, Linda & Sandra
PS. On one final note:
We recommend another sight for very detailed day-ahead previews. Just be warned, if you are sensitive to your "favorites", no character is safe there...they are all lampooned on a daily basis. It is completely tongue in cheek and dripping with sarcasm, but personally, (I have a wicked sense of humor and) usually leave the site chuckling...sometimes LMAO! That aside, it is a very detailed write up and you may want to check it out:
Also, if you are a "Marlena" fan...Bev does wonderful day-ahead previews and photos on the days that Marlena will be on the show (which, these days seems like hardly ever).
Her detailed previews can be found at:

Good luck to you, and I will miss the "Early Editions"
sorry to hear that - i really looked forward to coming into work each morning and automatically getting into days. i will really miss you guys. thanks for everything throughout the years.
Good luck with your future...
Will miss the "Early Edition" greatly.
I am both new to days and your site.. I started watching less than a year ago and a friend told me about your site a few months ago.
I will miss your daily postings,
Great work and thanks much. You will be missed.
I wish you all well and thank you.
Enjoy your new freedom!
Thank you for the past several years worth of work. I really appreciate it. - Becky
Best of Luck to all of you!

And on the storylines.....I've found myself not reading your posts for lack of interest in the current plots.:)
Thanks for a great time!
I've appreciated your efforts over the years, even though I taped most shows. It's always been run to read the side comments (noting who has custody of the Salem Brain today).
I will you all the best.
tears, running down my face. Thank you though for all of your hard work, and you will be sadly missed.
Thanks for your hard work . but i sure do hope this is a aprils fools joke!
Good luck to all of you, you will be missed!
I've been reading your spoilers for so long, I think I must have found you in the very beginning. Your site has always kept me linked to Days, as I have not always watched due to school, then work, and for so long now the lame stories. But I always looked forward to the EE. First thing in the mornings when coming into work, I'd get on the SP board and look for your post! Thank you so much for all the time you devoted to this! I can't post on the SP Board but I look forward to reading your future posts there! Take care to you all!
Good luck in all your do and know that we appreciated what you did and we will miss it.
Best of luck and I sure will miss your reviews.
Good luck and best wishes to all....for the best DAYS OF YOUR LIVES
I will check out the other sites you recommend, but doubt it will be even close to the quality and details we have enjoyed here on The Early Edition. I don't get to watch it much anymore and have kept up with my favorite (and not so favorite) charachters here every day! You all will be missed, but completely understand when it is time to say enough. Like sand through the hour glass, so are the days of our lives :-)
I am sure it was a real pain to do such a thorough recap day after day and I know all your regular readers appreciate the effort.
Thanks again for such a great site and best of luck to all of you!
You will be missed
Best to all of you. : )
Honestly, I hope this is an "April Fools" joke but if not, I wanna say thanx for everything.
Thank you so much for your years of wonderful previews. EE was one of the first things I found for Days on the net back in 1998 and I still find your archives to be an incredible source of information.
You will be missed.
Good Luck to you all in your future journey.
I will miss your site. I have been reading it for about 6 years now.
