Meanwhile, EJ gives Nicole a hard time about working for a priest. Nicole figures out EJ’s trying to get Sami back and assures him that’s doomed. Sami only loves Rafe. Will and Gabi discuss Nick’s offer to tell the world he’s the father of Gabi’s baby. Rafe arrives and she tells her brother Nick wants to marry her. Rafe is supportive.
