Sami shows up at Lexies house to see Brandon, and gets read the riot act by Lexie. Lexie demands to know if Sami has feelings for Brandon, and Sami says yes she does. Sami says she has strong feelings for him, which is why she wants Brandon out of town. She says if Celeste is telling the truth about Brandonthen her happiness could be ruined by his staying in Salem. Sami tells Lexie that Brandon has to leave town tonight. Lexie says she hates to disappoint her, but she has asked Brandon to stay the night. Sami says she and her mother are doing this on purpose, and that they are trying to ruin her life! Sami says she wont let them do this to her, and she begins chocking Lexie! She lets go of Lexie and decides to go find Brandon, but Lexie says hes not upstairs. Lexie says Brandon turned her offer down and didnt stay. Lexie tells Sami that shell have to ruin her future all by herself, and tells her goodnight. Sami leaves, and Lexie says she has to keep Sami away from Brandon. Just then, Brandon comes down the stairs. He asks if someone was here as he heard voices. Lexie says she was just watching Law and Order. Brandon was spending time with Theo, and he says it made him realize he wants to spend one more night in Salem. Lexie is stunned, and he says one night wont make a difference. He asks Lexie if there is a problem? She says no, she just thinks he should go back to Chicago. She says they will come visit him often, its not far away. Brandon says he can tell she is hiding something, so cut the crap. He asks if this is about Sami? He realizes it is, and wonders what she thinks. He asks if she thinks hes going to run out for a nightcap with Sami and some hot sex? Brandon says he has told her it is over between them. Lexie says as long as he stays in Salem he will be drawn to her. Lexie says Sami will run into him, and then shell pull one of her old tricks. She says she cares about him because he and Theo are all she has left of Abe. Brandon says nothing will happen, and his family is here so he cant stay away from Salem forever. He says he wants to see his mom and Nicole. He says he hasnt heard back from Nicole, and asks where she is. Lexie says she may be out of town. Brandon says the point is Sami is with Lucas now and that is where she belongs. Still, Lexie fears Sami may still sink her claws into him, so she begs Brandon to leave. Brandon eventually agrees to go, and packs a bag. He says he wishes he could have stayed longer, but she says he made the right decision to leave. She thanks him for doing this for her, and she says they will visit him soon. Lexie tells Brandon that she loves him and he heads off. Lexie says Brandon just has to find someone special to be happy with. She then looks at a photo of Abe and wishes he was here because she and Theo need him so much.

Meanwhile, Lucas goes to Samis place and realizes she is gone. He says she has gone to see Brandon, and hes through with her. Lucas says he cant marry someone he doesnt trust. Will hears this and says no! Will tells his dad that he cant give up on mom so easily, he cant let Brandon win. Sami returns later, and Lucas asks where she has been. She says she went to the store, but it was closed. Lucas knows she is lying and that she went to see Brandon. Sami says she did. He says he knew it, its over, hes not marrying her. She asks for a chance to explain, but he says no more chances. He says he is sick of listening to her theories about his mom and Eugenia trying to set her up. Sami says it is true, and does he really think the whole thing was one big coincidence? She says it was all a set-up. Lucas says five seconds after saying she loved him tonight she was out the door running after Brandon. He says she is predictable, and he cant believe he is falling for her old games. Lucas says he wants her whole heart otherwise he wants nothing to do with her. Sami tells Lucas to listen to her. She says she went to LExies to make sure Brandon was gone. She says she didnt even see him, hes left town. She asks what he has to do to convince him that Brandon is not a problem for them. She swears the only reason she went there was to make sure he left town. She says it is like why she burned his stuff earlier, she did it to get rid of any memories or thoughts of Brandon. Sami says she just wanted to be 100% sure he was out of her head, heart and Salem. She says there is only room in her heart for one man, and that is him. Sami tells Lucas that he is the only man she could ever love. She says she has made so many mistakes, and has ruined every relationship shes been in because she has been selfish, but she doesnt want to do that to him. She says she wants them to be a family with Will, she wants Will to have two parents that he can depend on, and she wants him to have a wife he can trust to be faithful. Sami says she will always love him with all of her heart as long as she lives. She says she is so afraid of losing him, and if that would happen she doesnt know what shed do. She says she doesnt think she could live without him. Lucas says he loves her and he does want to marry her. They kiss, and head back to the bedroom to make love. 

On the coast guards ship, Abe meets up with the others. Abe says Tek saved his life, he really owes him. Hope says Tek saved Gran and Maggie too. Hope asks where Tek is, and Abe says they have him on oxygen down below. Abe asks for the bad news, and Bo tells Abe the list of those missing and presumed dead. Hope cant believe theyve lost them all over again, but Bo refuses to believe they are gone. He says he wont believe it without bodies, this isnt happening again. John says no its not, and they need to get out there in the water, but Brady tells his dad that hes in no shape to go anywhere. Abe fears that Victor isnt going to last long out there, and Jen begs them to go search for Jack because her baby needs his father. Abe, Bo, Brady and Patrick prepare to search, but the coast guard tells them no way. The coast guard says there is no need to risk their lives, they have sent out a deep sonar probe to locate anything else out there. Bo says theyll sit tight for the time then, and Hope says they just have to pray the coast guard saves the others. Nicole whispers under her breath that she hopes Victor isnt found. Brady asks if she said something? Did she just say she didnt want Victor to make it? Nicole says she wont lie, and she says her future would be brighter without Victor in it. She says she loves him and wants to be with him, but Victor wont let that happen. Brady says theyre talking about his grandfather, how far would he go to see him dead? Nicole says she could have killed Victor back on the island, but instead of crushing his skull with a chunk of concrete, she saved him. Brady says he remembers, and he knows shed never kill anyone because shes not capable of murder. Meanwhile, Bo worries about the others. He thinks his mom and Victor may not be able to survive, but the others are strong. Bo asks why them, why do the Bradys have to suffer? He says even with the DiMeras dead, will this ever end? Later, Bo tells Hope has checked on Billie and she is weak, but her condition is improving. Bo says Billie also still has the computer disk with Tonys plans on it. Bo says even with Tony dead, the information on that disk on how to control world power sources is very dangerous. Bo says they must get that disk to t he ISA. Elsewhere, John prays to God for Marlenas return. Later he asks the coast guard commander what the latest is? He says they have radioed everyone in the area and none of them have found any more survivors. He says one ship hasnt responded, a Japanese trawler. John thinks maybe they are busy rescuing people and that is why they havent yet responded. John says the rest of them could be on the boat. Abe says with the weather conditions their radio may not be operable. John says he doesnt care, he wants that boat to be contacted with. The coast guard agrees to go rendezvous with the boat, and everyone hopes the others are onboard. 

A Japanese fishing boat picks up Roman and MArlena in their net, and they look very dead! They arent dead at all though, and are taken to a small room. Marlena thanks them for saving them. Roman asks the fisherman if they found others? They nod, but dont understand English. They think he is just thanking them and have no idea what he is asking (subtitles indicate this). Marlena tells Roman that she is so scared for John, she doesnt think he could have made it through the waves. Roman tells Marlena that they have to face the possibility that they are the only two who survived. Marlena says she needs to know if John is all right and if theyll be together again soon. Roman says he understands, hes worried about his family too. Roman says Cassie cant even swim. Marlena says she is sorry, but Roman says it isnt her fault. Roman says this is DiMeras fault. Roman says he hates to think about losing Cassie, but if they did, how is he going to tell Kate? Roman says they need to find out about the others, but when he tries to leave the room theyre in he finds it is locked! Roman worries, but MArlena says Tony is dead and cant hurt them. Marlena has a bad feeling as Tony could have left instructions for their destruction. Roman says it is a possibility. Marlena says they need to come up with a plan, and Roman says he has an idea. 

Elsewhere on the boat we see Caroline tending to Victor. She asks God to please help Victor pull through. She says she thought she lost him until the Japanese fishermen rescued them, and she wonders if they are the only two survivors? Victor is very pale and white looking, and says he feels like hes in heaven. He asks Caroline about the others, but she says she doesnt know and they need to pray. Victor gets up and decides to go check to see if anyone else has survived, and he finds the door is locked! Caroline thinks it is just stuck until she tries it. She says they have locked them in! Victor feels they have been locked in on purpose, and he wonders why. He begins banging on the door and demands to be let out. Caroline asks him not to get to upset and to think about his heart. 

In another part of the ship, Jack is tending to someone and tells them that they have to make it. The person starts coughing, and its Cassie! Cassie asks where she is and what happened? Jack says theyve been picked up by a Japanese trawler, and the people dont speak English so he doesnt know who else survived. Cassie wonders if it is bad to be glad Tony is dead, and Jack says no. Jack tries the door only to find theyve been locked in. Jack begins to call out and asks to be let out because the door is locked. Cassie says she has a bad feeling about this, and Jack says so does he. He says something is going on and it is not good.

We see Bart on the ship dressed up as a Navy man. He says thanks to the counts escape plan, he survived, but the count wasnt so lucky. He says he has his orders though, and none of his enemies will get out of here alive. Bart spies on the Japanese fisherman and learns that the radio is not working on the boat, which means the survivors cant call for help and wont get off the boat alive. Back in Roman and Marlenas room, a they talk in walks Bart holding a gun! Bart says the captain would very much like to see them. In walks Tony, who tells them not to leave on his account because they dont want to miss the killer reunion!


November 9, 2004
Sami wakes up and finds Lucas and Will are gone. She finds a note from Lucas, who tells her last night was wonderful and he now knows she is over Brandon. He says they let her sleep in, and he dropped Will off at school on his way to his job interview. Sami remembers Celeste telling her about his premonition about Brandon staying in town, and Lexie insisting Brandon left town. Sami says Brandon is gone, and now she, Will and Lucas will be a family.

Jan and Shawn show up at the loft, and they run into Belle in the hallway outside the two lofts. Belle thinks they are up early, and Shawn says he just came back from Salem U. She asks if he is registering early, but he says no hes dropping out and getting his money back. Belle says she cant believe this; he was going to be a lawyer and work for his Uncle Mickey. Shawn says he woke up and realized there were better things to do. Jan says they have enough money, Shawn doesnt need to work. Shawn says he can live off the Horton and Kiriakis trust funds, he has woken up and realized school is a waste of time. Belle cant believe him, and she doesnt like this new Shawn. Shawn says he doesnt care what she thinks. Jan says she loves the new Shawn, and he loves her. They kiss, and Belle gets a call from Sami. Sami asks her to come meet her for breakfast and discuss the wedding. Belle says its not a good time. Shawn tells her to do whatever the hell she wants because he has nothing more to say to her. Shawn and Jan go into their loft, and Belle agrees to meet up with Sami.

Jan and Shawn sit on the couch in the loft, and Shawn reads the paper. Jan tells Shawn they should move back to her country house where they can be alone. Shawn says that would be nice, and Jan is pleased. She says they wouldnt have to worry about running into that bitch Belle or her marine, or be bother be Rex and Mimi. She says theyll finally be alone. Shawn says right now they are alone, so they should take advantage of it. Shawn then uses the opportunity to get it on with Jan! They make love, and as Jan talks about their future, Shawn rubs his head. When she talks about moving to her place, he lashes out and says he doesnt want to talk about this anymore. She asks if he doesnt want to get away from Belle and Phillip? He says of course. Jan says they should begin planning their wedding, but Shawn says there is no reason to rush. Jan asks if he is okay? He says yeah, but there is a lot of stuff he doesnt remember. He says he doesnt even remember asking her. Jan says she has her ring and he asked her. Shawn says he believes her. Jan says they should at least think about starting to plan for the wedding. She says she wants to make him happy. Jan begins kissing on his neck, and Shawn continues to rub his head and wince. 

At Abes house, Celeste shows up because Lexie called her. Lexie asks her mother about her premonition about Sami and Brandon. Celeste says she did tell Sami that her future was at stake if Brandon stayed in town. Lexie says Sami showed up here last night and basically attacked her and accused the two of them of trying to ruin her life. Celeste asks if Brandon stayed, and Lexie says no he went to Chicago .Lexie offers to make her mom breakfast, but she says she has to go run errands. Celeste leaves, and Brandon walks down the steps. LExie asks him what hes doing here? Brandon says his car broke down outside of town, so he came back and spent the night. He says he didnt want to wake them, so he used the key she gave him, which he forgot to give back. He asks Lexie if she isnt glad to see him? She says honestly no. She says she doesnt want to see him be hurt by Sami. He says hed have to be involved with her. Lexie says he may not have a choice. He says of course he has a choice. Lexie says not according to her mother, and she tells him about her moms prediction. Brandon says well the night is over and they didnt see one another. Lexie says maybe he wont be hurt, and maybe she should have asked him to stay after all. Lexie says her moms prediction only said Samis future happiness would be ruined, it said nothing about his. She says seeing Sami miserable would make her so happy. Brandon tells her not to worry about Sami, and he asks to borrow her car to run some errands. She says sure, and then Brandon realizes it is Lexies birthday. He says hes sorry he forgot, and she says dont worry. She says she doesnt feel much like celebrating anyways. After Brandon leaves, Lexie looks at a photo of Abe and cries that she wants him back.

Sami meets Belle at the diner Faye used to work at. Sami is in a good mood, and Belle asks what has her so happy. She says Brandon is no where near Salem. Sami tells her sister about Celestes premonition. Belle thinks it is silly and says the only person responsible for Samis happiness is Sami. Sami says she knows, so Belle asks why shes so freaked out? Sami says Celestes premonitions about the Salem Stalker all came true. Belle says so what, the real issue is her feelings for Brandon. She says if Sami still has feelings for Brandonthen she cant marry him. She says that is what she finally realized about Shawn. Sami and Belle get down to the business of planning the wedding. Belle has ideas for reworking Carolines wedding dress for Sami. She says Caroline really wanted her to wear it, and then she remembers she was going to wear it when she married Shawn. Belle fantasizes about her wedding to Shawn. Belle soon begins to cry, and Brandon shows up and hears a young girl crying. He wonders if he should go offer help. The waitress tells him not to worry about them, so Brandon orders some pancakes. Meanwhile, Sami tells Belle not to think about Shawn, he is blaming her for things that are not her fault. Belle says it was her fault, she lied about mom and because of that his grandfather died (not a blooper, referring to Doug). Sami says what she did she did for family, and she still believes mom is innocent. She tells Belle to forget about Shawn, hes obviously forgotten about her. Belle says Sami is right; she needs to forget about Shawn and move on. Sami says when she was with Brandon she thought he was the love of her life, but he wasnt. She says she found love again with Lucas, and she thinks Belle will find love again soon. Sami asks her about Phillip, but Belle says it is too soon. Sami remembers she has a meeting with Father Jansen at the church, and she runs off. Sami leaves and narrowly misses running into Brandon. Brandon ends up canceling his breakfast because hes running late for his meeting at Saint Lukes.

Bonnie cant get Celestes premonition out of her head that Maggie is still alive. Bonnie is on the phone with the airlines, she and Mickey got bumped from their flight to Vegas the night before and she is trying to get a flight out today. The airlines tell them there are no seats on any flights, which upsets her. Mickey shows up and asks Bonnie who she is yelling at? She tells the person on the phone to call her back ASAP, and she hangs up. She tells Mickey that she is upset because she wanted to wake up to be Mrs. Mickey Horton. Mickey says maybe her not being able to book a flight is an omen, maybe they arent supposed to get married this morning. Bonnie ends up freaking out, almost lights up a cigarette, but instead calls Celeste for help. She asks Celeste to come over and bring her cards. Celeste shows up and doesnt know why she is here given the way Bonnie treated her last night. Bonnie apologizes and begs her to read her cards again and tell her about Maggie. Mickey shows up and asks why Celeste is here? Bonnie says she asked her to come over so she could apologize for calling her readings a bunch of bologna. She tells Mickey to go finish getting dressed so they can go get married. He says okay, but doesnt know why shes in such a rush. After he leaves, Celeste reads Bonnies cards. Celeste says nothing has changed, she still sees Maggie very much alive and coming home soon. Celeste swears it is true, and Bonnie says this is not good. Bonnie tries to get rid of Celeste, but Celeste knows Bonnie is up to something. Celeste tells her not to do something she will regret. Bonnie tells herself the brass ring is in reach and she will grab it, she will be Mrs. Mickey Horton! Mickey returns all gussied up in his rhinestone outfit, and Bonnie tells him the airlines havent called but she has a better idea. She grabs Mickey and drags him out the front door.

On the coast guard ship, Maggie tells John that he shouldnt be on his feet. John says he is fine. Maggie asks if he took any medicine. He says no, he wants his head clear when they rendezvous with the Japanese trawler. Abe shows up and asks John to come have breakfast to keep his strength up, but John says he needs to focus on the Japanese trawler right now. The coast guard says perhaps they shouldnt check out the trawler, John needs medical attention because if he doesnt get itthen he could end up paralyzed. He says the others need medical attention as well. He says if their loved ones are on the boat, they are safe. Abe says they took a vote to check out the boat before heading back, and John says they want to know if their relatives are alive or find proof they are dead. Maggie says she cant wait to be home, to put her arms around Mickey and to call her daughters. Maggie says she wants to throw a big party at Tuscany when they get home. Abe remembers Lexies birthday is coming up, and he wonders what to buy her. John thinks just walking through the door will be enough. Suddenly, Abes vision becomes blurry, but he doesnt say anything about it. Abe says he cant wait to see LExie and hold his boy. Abe says not only are they alive, but the truth about the stalker will be revealed. Maggie says Marlenas good name will be cleared. John says Marlena is alive, he can feel it. The coast guard captain says they are approaching the Japanese trawler. Maggie prays that the others will be safe and on the trawler.

On the Japanese fishing boat, Marlena and Roman wake up, and they both remember their encounter with Tony the day before. Roman and MArlena discuss how Tony could be alive, and what hell he has in store for them now. Bart shows up later, and he says he had the guys in the kitchen make them coffee and eggs for breakfast. Bart says they were actually making green tea and sushi until he straightened them out. Roman asks Bart where the others are, and if they are alive. He also asks where Tony is? Bart says hes nursing the neck wound the late John Black gave him. MArlena asks if John is dead? He says he doesnt know, he is just assuming. He tells them not to get their hopes up about any of the others still being a live. Roman says even if Bart did know he wouldnt say, hes too afraid of Tony. Bart says thats right, he is afraid of Tony. Bart says he just works here, if they want answers theyll have to talk to Tony. Roman says fine, go get him. Bart says no can do, he has his orders. Later, MArlena and Roman hear the coast guard outside asking for permission to come aboard. They think they have been saved.


November 10, 2004
On the Japanese trawler, Bo, Hope and Abe search for their friends. One of them men insists they only have fish onboard, but they are welcomed to search. Bart watches them from around a corner, and when Roman and Marlena scream for help, Bart orders them to shut up. He makes them follow him elsewhere. Marlena ends up dropping her ring in the hallway, and they are put below by Bart. Once alone, Marlena says she did something that might help them, or it might hurt them. Roman asks what? She says she dropped her wedding ring, but if it gets into the wrong hands it may do more harmthen good. She says what if Tony finds it? Roman says the have to hope that someone else does

Meanwhile, Bo, Hope and Abe show up and Hope finds a ring in one of the fishing nets and asks the fisherman to explain this to her. She says this is MArlenas wedding ring, and it wouldnt be on board if she wasnt. The fisherman says he has no idea how it got here, and he suggests that since it was in the net it could have been pulled out of the sea. Bo says along with the woman with it, where is she! The man says he doesnt know, perhaps the wave pulled it off her finger. The coast guard captain believes him and says he has no motive to lie. Abe says he is right, maybe they need to face the fact that the others are dead.

Back in the room they have been put in, Roman and Marlena hear a helicopter outside, and they see their loved ones boarding the helicopter from the coast guard boat. They are unhappy to see the others leaving without them, and begin screaming to be let out. Tony listens to them scream and says they have no clue what he has planned for them next, for them or their friends. Roman tells MArlena that they cant let Tony get to them. Marlena says she just cant stand that hes controlling their lives again. Roman says they are still alive and they will get out of here to be reunited with their loved ones. Tony walks in and says they will reunite with their loved ones, but will it be in Salem or hell? Tony says their loved ones have left. He says the searched the ship but they couldnt find these hidden compartments. Roman says they will get out of here. Tony says yes, but in the meantime enjoy themselves! Tony leaves them, and Roman says they will get back to Salem, but until then, they still have each other.

In Salem, Celeste is reading the paper when suddenly her crystals begin to glow. She says there is great apprehension among the spirits, and as one chapter comes to an end, another one begins.

Bonnie drags Mickey to the Justice of the Peace to be married. He doesnt understand why they just dont wait and have Elvis marry them in Vegas like she wanted. She says she doesnt want to wait, and he asks why? Julie shows up and asks yes why? Bonnie asks if Julie followed them? Julie says she saw them speeding down the parkway and wondered what they were up to, so yes she followed them. She asks Bonnie why shes so hell bent to get married today? Does she know something they dont? Mickey thinks they should take time and do this the way she wants, but Bonnie says no. Bonnie says she wants to marry him today, right now because she loves him. Mickey says he knows she does, and theyve gone about this all the wrong way. Mickey says hes made up his mind and they arent getting married. She asks what he means? Mickey asks Julie to leave them be for a moment. Julie says okay, but dont let Bonnie talk him out of his decision! Mickey says he loves Bonnie and they dont need a wedding or a big fancy wedding, they can live as companions. Bonnie says she is touched hed live in sin for her, but she doesnt want to ruin his good name or tarnish his familys reputation. She says she wants to be his wife. Mickey says if it will make her happy then they can get married. Mickey goes into a room to get the paperwork started, and says shell be right in. Bonnie pulls out a cosmetics mirror to freshen up. She ends up dropping it, and it shatters. Bonnie says not another seven years! Julie shows up and says it seems like an omen to her, and she walks into the room where Mickey went. Bonnie vows she will marry Mickey and there is nothing anyone can do to stop her. Bonnie goes in, and the Justice of the Peace starts the ceremony. When asked if anyone has just because why these two shouldnt wed, Julie cries out. However she says its just a Charlie Horse and to go ahead. Julie says to herself that she objects, and knows Maggie would too. Meanwhile, Maggie arrives home and calls out to Mickey, but he doesnt answer. She walks into the living room and is stunned by what she sees. She says oh my god, no!

Belle is walking outside and remembers Shawn telling her that he was dropping out of school. Belle says she has to get over Shawn, if he wants to drop out of school and be with Jan then so be it. Belle heads to Bo and Hopes house for her play date with Zack, and shes stunned when Shawn answers the door. She explains to him that shes been coming over to play with Zack so he isnt so lonely. Shawn invites her in, and they sit down and play with Zack. Shawn grabs his head again, and she asks what is wrong. He says not much, he just cant believes hes here and his parents arent. Belle says she understands, she hasnt been back to the penthouse since her parents died. Shawn says hes been thinking about selling the house, but he doesnt know yet. Shawn also says he doesnt know how to tell Zack their parents are gone. Shawn looks at an old picture of him and his parents. He says he has so many memories of them, but Zack wont have any. Shawn says hes too young to remember all their traditions, like decorating the Christmas tree or sailing around the world in the Fancy Face. She says maybe he can make new family traditions with Zack, theyll have their own family memories to share. Shawn says he doesnt think so, not without her in his life. Shawn rants and raves about his parents being gone, and then he apologizes to her for the way he treated her back at the loft. He says he knows she was only concerned about his dropping out, and he hopes shell accept his apology. He says he really is sorry. He is hit with another headache, and she again asks what is wrong. Shawn says it is nothing, his head has just been hurting since the accident. Belle thinks he should get it checked out, but he says no. He has to go take Jan shopping and asks her if she can take Zack back to Lexies? Belle says she will. Shawn gets ready to head out only to run into Hope and Bo! Hope screams, and they all hug one another.

Brandon shows up at St. Lukes to meet with the father. The sister says shell let him know he is here. Brandon looks at the paper and sees Sami and Lucas wedding announcement, and he thinks about his past with Sami. As Brandon goes in to see the father, Sami walks in and wonders what he is doing here. She says she thought she left Salem? She asks the sister if that was Antonio? The sister says yes, he is back in Salem while Father Jansen is away. Sami says she hasnt seen him since junior high, last she heard he left for the seminary. Sami says she always thought he was so hot. Sami apologizes, but the sister says she isnt the first woman to comment on his looks. Sami says she came here in hopes of meeting with Father Jansen about her wedding. The sister says shell check his appointment book, and she drops it. Sami narrowly misses seeing Brandons name on the book. Later Sami gets a call from Kate, and she answers the phone and says Samantha Roberts. Kate says she isnt a Roberts yet. Kate asks Sami when she is coming into work. Sami says she is busy planning her wedding to her son, which is Basic Black business. Kate tells her to just get here within thirty minutes. Sami asks why, is Brandon there? Kate says she has no idea what she is talking about. Sami then gloats to Kate that she knows everything she is up to, and tells her it wont work because Brandon left Salem last night according to Lexie.

Meanwhile, Brandon meets with Father Antonio. Father Antonio and Brandon are old friends, and Antonio is subbing for Father Jansen while hes on sabbatical. Brandon explains he wanted to meet Father Jansen to talk about his charity work with kids, and he hopes Antonio will come onboard his project. Later on his way out Brandon slips right by Sami, who is yelling at Kate on the phone. Neither one see the other. Sami meets with Father Antonio and talks about taking classes for her marriage. Antonio says hes happy shes getting married, but she could have signed up for everything over the phone, she didnt have to come in. Sami says she has a problem and wanted to talk about it. She admits shes been thinking about her ex-husband lately, fantasizing about him. Father Antonio asks about her being able to marry in the church given she was married. Sami says her marriage was annulled, so she never made it to the wedding night with either of her husbands. Sami says she wants to get married but she cant stop thinking about her ex husband. She asks if she is going to hell. Father Antonio says shes not going to hell for having impure thoughts about another man, but they need to know why she is having these thoughts. He asks Sami if she is satisfied with Lucas, does he fulfill her. Sami says he does, she loves him and he is a good father. Father Antonio says perhaps she should talk to her ex and find out why she is thinking about him. He says if she figures out what it is that is missing in her life with Lucas, and if she can do without it, only then she can proceed with her marriage to Lucas.

At the Carver house, Lexie looks at photos of Abe with Theo and wishes he was here. Celeste calls up to check if LExie and Theo are okay. Lexie says yes, why? Celeste says she feels the spirits are wrestles. Lexie says not on her birthday! Celeste is very worried, so Lexie asks what her cards say? Celeste says she has been afraid to ask, but checks them. She says a change has been set in motion, one that will affect all of their lives.

Kate is at the office and calls Lucas up to wish him luck for his interview. She hopes to herself that Lucas gets the job because it will make him one of the most eligible men in Salem and pretty soon hell forget all about Sami. Later she talks to Sami (per the previous paragraph), and then Kate tries calling Brandon. Shes upset when she only gets his voice mail. She then calls Lexies house to ask her if what Sami told her was true. Celeste answers the phone, and Kate asks her about her premonition involving Sami and Brandon (Sami told Kate about it). Celeste says it was true, so Kate asks her if she can consult her cards and give her more information? Celeste does, and then gasps. She tells Kate to go to the hospital right away! 

Kate arrives at the hospital as Celeste instructed her too. She remembers Celeste telling her the person she loves and will spend her life with is in the hospital. She thinks it is Roman, walks in, and sees John lying in the bed!

Back at the Carver house, Brandon has planned a birthday party for Lexie. She goes outside to check on her mom, who ran out to her car, and Brandon follows her. They are stunned when Abe walks up to them. Lexie says this cant be, he is alive. Abe says hes come home to her. LExie runs into his arms and screams. 



November 11, 2004
At the justice of the peace, Mickey and Bonnies marriage ceremony continues. When the justice asks if anyone knows any reason why they shouldnt be married, Julie shoots up out of her seat. She says its just a charlie horse and for them to continue. However, when they arrive at the I do part, Julie finally yells out stop! She says Mickey cant do this, she wont let him. Mickey drags Julie outside and says he has had it with her. He says he cannot take her behavior anymore, and he wants her out of his life. Bonnie hears this and cheers to herself, and Julie cries that she cant believe he is turning on his own family for a cheap gold digging floozy!
