Lucas demands Kate give back the gun he gave her so it can't be traced back to him. Kate says she handed it over to Philip, and Lucas freaks out. Lucas questions Kate about whether or not she fired the gun... and if Sami was her target. Kate dodges the question, then turns the tables on Lucas, wondering if he fired his gun - it wouldn't be the first time he shot Sami's groom on her wedding day. Kate insists that if he did, she'd take the fall for him - that's how much she loves him. Sami finds EJ an emotional wreck and tries to use tough love to get him to fight for his life. EJ is in great despair and won't listen. Sami invokes their son and begs EJ to hold on for him. He says he can't be a good father now and encourages Sami to file for an annulment and go back to Lucas. He snaps at her to get out and leave him the hell alone. Sami flees the room, telling Stefano she did what she could, but EJ wishes he were dead. She returns home to Lucas and reports what EJ said. Lucas is thrilled by the news, but Sami is still torn. Lucas looks forward to raising the twins together, while Sami has a vision of Colleen, who tells her not to give up on EJ. Back at the hospital, EJ starts to convulse as Stefano watches in horror.
