Fake Rafe tries to convince Sami that Real Rafe is the imposter and that he’s the one who has been held captive for months.  There is a tussle, Sami is knocked unconscious, and the two Rafes fight for control of the gun.  The gun gets dropped and Sami picks it up when she comes to and breaks up the fighting Rafes.  When the two men won’t stop trying to convince her that the other is the imposter, Sami shoots!
Fake Rafe is winged, and Real Rafe calls her a lousy shot.  Sami tells his they can’t kill Fake Rafe, much as she’d like to.  They also can’t go to the police she tells him after filling him in on his career as a police officer and that her father and uncle are high ranking officers on the Salem PD.  EJ has the means to just disappear with her kids, says Sami as she fills him in on their life together.

Chloe tells Maggie that she’s moving out.  She later also tells Brady who sees her with the wad of cash at the Brady pub.  When Brady tells Victor that Chloe is moving out of Maggie’s house, he assumed that Red got wise to Chloe, and rushes over to Maggie’s house and pretends to be contrite and apologizes for telling her who could stay at her house.  Maggie however is wise and tells him not to play her.  They break up, several times, and finally (reluctantly) agree there can be nothing more between them.
EJ tells Stefano that he’s decided to stay with Nicole for the sake of the children, without mentioning that Nicole is blackmailing him.  Nicole finds it fascinating that EJ hasn’t told his father about her blackmail, and is disappointed to learn that Lexie convince Taylor (who moved out of the mansion) to stay in town.

At the Cheatin Heart, Brady comforts a tipsy and teary Taylor.  Nicole witnesses the hug, and once Taylor leaves tells Brady not to fall for the little match girl act that Taylor does so well.  They are a lot more alike than people think, Nicole tells Brady.  Brady tells that they are over, and to move on.
