Gen­er­ally in Salem, it’s po­lite to wait un­til the wed­ding day to shoot the groom. Dis­traught widow Marge Bernardi (El­iz­a­beth Roberts) is jump­ing the gun when she opens fire at EJ and Sami’s (James Scott and Ali­son Sweeney) en­gage­ment party on Tues­day 13 De­cem­ber. We’re giv­ing her a pass though – ev­ery­one knows that Sami killed Marge’s hus­band Joe (An­thony Tyler Quinn) to stop him from slic­ing off his part­ner Rafe’s (Galen Ger­ing) good­ies on be­half of Ste­fano DiMera (Joseph Mas­colo). But those gun­shots are lead­ing to more trou­ble than blood for the DiMeras…

On Wed­nes­day 14 De­cem­ber, Marge blows a hole in Chad DiMera’s (Casey Dei­drick) chest – and his brain tu­mour story. When Cameron (Schuyler Yancey) wants to warn Daniel (Shawn Chris­tian) about the med­i­ca­tions that Chad’s sup­pos­edly on be­fore he op­er­ates, EJ is forced to ad­mit to Cameron that his brother isn’t med­i­cated: Chad’s been ly­ing about the tu­mour to make Abby (Kate Mansi) feel sorry for him so that she’d date Chad, not Cameron. And as Chad lies on the op­er­at­ing table, his dad Ste­fano sneaks off to the hos­pi­tal chapel on Wed­nes­day 14 De­cem­ber to bar­gain with God. “If you will spare my son’s life, I prom­ise to make up for what I’ve done. I will try to be a bet­ter man,” he vows. Ste­fano DiMera on the side of the an­gels? Good luck with that!

On Tues­day 20 De­cem­ber, Sami’s dad Ro­man (Josh Taylor) warns her: “EJ does what Daddy tells him to do. Think long and hard about what you’re do­ing. Is this re­ally the life you want?” And she later ad­mits to EJ, “I spent all night last night won­der­ing what I would have said to our kids if some­thing had hap­pened to you. We are liv­ing in his house with our chil­dren and he [Ste­fano] is in charge! Do you not un­der­stand what is at stake here for me and our chil­dren once we marry?” But when EJ sug­gests that they post­pone the wed­ding, Sami re­torts, “Post­pone? How about can­cel?” Now there’s a shot to the heart! It looks like Marge Bernardi’s aim wasn’t so bad af­ter all. Gabi tries to let Nick down gen­tly, and JJ con­fronts Kayla about Jack rap­ing her and he’s ar­rested af­ter he goes on a ram­page at the shop where Jack’s book is on dis­play. Ni­cole later saves the day when Kris­ten sends a “mug­ger” to steal her flash­drive from Mar­lena.

Kris­ten’s “mug­ger” claims that he threw her flash­drive in the river, while Eric’s sus­pi­cions turn on Ni­cole as he in­ves­ti­gates who was at the ho­tel the night of his mem­ory loss. Mar­lena throws an en­gage­ment party for Sami and EJ but Marge up­stages ev­ery­one’s drama when she crashes the event and opens fire, shoot­ing Chad. EJ is forced to ad­mit to Cameron that Chad doesn’t have a brain tu­mour, and Ste­fano prom­ises God that he’ll put evil be­hind him if Chad sur­vives. Later, Theresa starts her plot to make Jen­nifer think that Daniel is hav­ing an af­fair with her and then breaks into his flat. The judge sends JJ to live with Jen­nifer, and Eric re­alises that his ho­tel sex dreams are ac­tu­ally sup­pressed mem­o­ries. Sami sug­gests to EJ that they can­cel their wed­ding, and Chad is forced to tell Abby why he lied about the tu­mour af­ter she over­hears him talk­ing to Cameron.
