Bo fills Hope in on what went down between him, Billie and Chelsea. He
tells her that Chelsea said terrible things to Billie. Hope says most of
them were probably true. Bo says if ever there was a time to be supportive
of Billie it is now. Hope says she is sorry but she cant forget that
Billie took advantage of him in that pit. Hope asks how she can be expected
to trust Billie? Bo says this is about trusting him not Billie. Hope says he
is so blinded to Billies tricks to try and get him back that she cant
see what shes doing. Hope says Billie is not above using her daughter to
get him closer to her. Bo says Billie doesnt have to use tricks to get
closer to him, they have a daughter and that will bring them closer whether
they like it or not. Hope warns him about Chelsea as well, but Bo thinks
Chelsea needs to be given a break. Hope says Chelsea is out to get whatever
she wants and he cant see that. Hope says Jen agrees with her where
Chelsea is concerned. She says its easier for her to be objective because
Chelsea isnt her daughter. Bo says no she is his and Billies, and Hope
cant get over that. Hope says shes not thrilled they share a child,
but she is her step-daughter. Hope says all she is saying is Chelsea has
problems and is manipulative. She says she knows Bo has guilt over not being
there for her, but he keeps looking away and not seeing her faults. Bo says
everything will work out and everything will be fine. He says they are a
family now, Shawn and Zack have a new sister and they have a new child to
share their lives with.
Brady and Chloe arrive at Alices. Chloe says this isnt right, Belle went to so much trouble. Brady says yes, but she went to trouble for Sami and Lucas too. Brady insists she go in and allow them to celebrate her. Chloe walks into the shower, and Belle gives her a big hug. Belle says she is married and soon Chloe will be too. Belle says when they were in high school they never thought it would end like this. Chloe says she knows.
Shawn is bartending, and Mimi is waitressing. Bonnie thanks them both for working tonight as she knows they were invited to both of these parties. Mimi says she can use the money so its no big deal. Bonnie tells Shawn if he wants to drop in on the bachelor party shell cover for him. He thanks her. Mimi sees Shawn looking at Belle and says Shawn! Mimi takes Belle and the others drinks, but Belle says she cant drink, Mimi says oh yeah, pregnant, I forgot. Meanwhile, Bonnie talks to Shawn about how sad it is Belle and Mimi are on the outs, and it is a shame the way Belle strung him along. She says she is so glad he and Mimi found one another. Shawn says they are just friends. She says sure, maybe thats how they will start out. Bonnie says they are like a great wine or champagne, they will get better and better with every year. Bonnie walks off, and Mimi returns to the bar. Shawn smiles at her and she says what. He says nothing. She then heads off again with more drink orders.
Sami is whining to Caroline that she shouldnt have to share her party with Chloe. Caroline says it is a miracle Chloe is alive. Sami says they thought she, mom, Jack and dad were dead; Chloe let people think she was dead. Sami says that isnt a miracle. Caroline asks Sami why she is in such a bad mood? Sami says at this point she thinks it will be a miracle if she and Lucas get to the part of I do in the ceremony. Caroline toasts to Sami and Lucas celebrating their silver anniversary. Sami tells her grandma not to jinx it. Sami doesnt want to think about how many times she has been to the alter. Caroline says it will work this time because she and Lucas have love, honesty and most important of all trust.
Abby talks with Chelsea, and Abby asks Chelsea if she has accepted Bo and Billie as her parents. Chelsea says hell no, she has a lousy mother and an even worse grandmother, how thrilled should she be about that. Chelsea talks about how Billie and Kate are witches. Abby says well she must have the same witchy genes.
Kate and Billie are there and apparently overhear Chelsea bitching about Billie. Kate tells Billie that she needs to stay strong as Chelsea will come around. Kate says Billie did. Billie says she just waited so long to find her and she thought the wait was over. Kate says think of this as an opportunity, and she basically tells Billie to use this to get Bo and in the end if Chelsea doesnt want her, by the end Bo will. Billie tells her mother once again she and Bo dont have a future together, how many times does she have to tell her. Kate says okay shell stop. Kate says but she needs to stop pushing Chelsea. She says if she pushes then Chelsea will push her away.
Sami and Kate end up getting into a tiff. Kate tells Sami nobody is here for her, and the only one who cares about her here is Caroline. Sami goes to attack Kate, but Caroline stops her. Kate then heads to the bar and orders a drink. She tells Shawn hes using his college education wisely, and tells Shawn that Belle is married to her son and dont forget it. Kate walks off, and Bonnie tells Shawn no matter how you dress it up, trash is trash. Bonnie tells Shawn to leave, go have a good time at the boys party. Shawn leaves, and Bonnie makes a call to find out where he is. Mimi asks what she is up to now?
Kate goes to see Chelsea, and Chelsea asks Granny Kate what she wants. Kate thinks they should get off to a new start. Kate admits she was rude when they met at the coffee shop. Kate says people always hit her up for work, but if she had known she was Billies daughter then things would have gone differently. Billie walks up, and Chelsea asks Billie how she loses her own kid? Billie says it is a long story and shell tell her later. Chelsea thinks shes being blown off. Billie says it is personal and shell explain in private. Billie says the gist is that she and Bo were told Chelsea was stillborn, and it has to do with a bad family named the DiMeras who are out to destroy everyone in Salem. Billie says to be honest they dont know all the answers, but they do know that they are her parents. Chelsea asks what shes supposed to call her, mom? Chelsea says she had a mom and that is what she called her. Billie says how about Billie, and Chelsea says that would be okay. Chelsea says she doesnt mean to make this hard, but she needs more time. Billie says fine, theyll talk later. Chelsea leaves, and Kate comforts Billie.
Abby asks Chelsea why shes being nice for them all of the sudden. Chelsea says she does need time to think this out, but she also has a plan up her sleeve. Chelsea says she wants things she cant get without money, and having Billies DNA may be the best thing that happened to her.
Two strippers show up at Alices, and one is Bart dressed as the lone ranger. Bart likes what he sees in Bonnie and says her swagger makes him hot. Bonnie tells him to stick around as he hasnt seen anything yet. Bonnie then introduces the strippers, who take to the stage and strip to the tune of Im Too Sexy. All the girls scream and dollars are shoved in their pants. The real stripper works the crowd, and Bart in his boxers works Bonnie! Mimi scolds her mom for making a spectacle of herself, but Bonnie says you only have one life. Bart ends up going over to see Sami, but she says shes not into it. He says first she disses him as a clown and now she wont tip him when hes in his skivvies? Bart reveals himself to Sami and says he has a message for her from the count. She says she cant talk to him here, but he gives her no choice and drags her off. Kate watches and thinks it is just like Sami to run off and sew her wild oats before marrying her son.
Chloe talks to Belle about her scars. She worries that they havent healed, she saw the way the doctor looked at her face when he changed the bandages. She doesnt think they are getting better. Belle says she will be a beautiful bride no matter what, and Brady will lover her always no matter what.
Hope shows up, and walks up to Billie and Kate. Hope tells Billie that Bo filled her in and she is sure everything will work out the way it is supposed to. Hope walks off, and Billie thinks that was rather bitchy. Kate says she is just scared that Billie will end up with Bo like she is supposed to. Billie says once again her life is about Georgia, er Chelsea and that is it.
Chelsea says and there is her new step mom. Abby likes Hope, but Chelsea doesnt. Chelsea thinks that Hope better enjoy her marriage while it lasts as it will soon be over.
Outside of Alices, Bart and Sami are talking. Sami wants the costume back as her DNA is all over it. Bart says if the Count escapes theyll arrange that. However, he says if the escape doesnt work out, shell end up in a grave.
In another section of Alices, Brady and Lucas bachelor party is going on. Phillip wishes Brady all the best. Brady thanks him, and Phillip discuses how there was a time he hated the idea of being without Chloe, and now he couldnt be happier for her. Brady says he better be as hes married to his sister now. Brady and Phillip talk about Phillips leg, and Phillip is waiting for a more advanced model. Brady asks when theyll play some one on one? Phillip says ASAP, as long as Brady can handle getting his ass kicked by a one-legger.
Meanwhile Victor talks with Lucas about his marriage and just hopes he knows what hes doing marrying Sami. Later, Victor tells Phillip how proud he is of him, and how his family will want for nothing. He says when his child is born there will be dancing in the streets. Shawn hears this and walks off. Bo shows up and tells his dad that he has another new grand child, he and Billie found their daughter. Victor says hes happy for him. Later Philip gets a call from the hospital, its good news. He says his new prosthesis is in and he has to go get fitted for it.
Meanwhile, Roman tells John that this Dr. North guy is suspicious, and he cant believe John has no problem with him and Marlena being up there and not hearing from them. John says he went with Lexies recommendation, and he does have a problem with it. John eventually admits he probably made the wrong call, but what is eating Roman up is it wasnt his call to make. John tells Roman he got Marlena in this mess by taking advantage of Marlena and getting her pregnant. John says he knows Roman blames himself as he should. Later, John ends up making a call to someone who has been investigating Dr. North, and the news he gets isnt good. John says that is just what he thought.
At the cabin, Dr. North tells Marlena he has a special treatment that he
has been waiting for the right time to try on her. She asks if it is
experimental? He says no, but it requires her giving her trust to him
completely. He asks if she trusts him? She says of course she does. She says
before coming away here it was just torture for her. She says everyone else
grates on her, they push her to remember, but he gives her the freedom of
not remembering. Dr. North says her husband keeps calling. Marlena says she
knows, he wants her to attend a wedding or something, some of her children
are getting married. She says she doesnt want to, and she guesses she
should feel guilty. He says she shouldnt, she cant help what shes
living through right now. She says there he goes again, hes making her
feel normal. Marlena says she would just disappoint people if she went to
the wedding, and she cant handle everyone staring at her. Dr. North says
that is why he hasnt called John back, and he thought shed have second
thoughts about attending. Marlena asks what hed like her to do? He says
he wants her to do something shes never experienced before in life. He
says it is one of lifes great pleasures. The oven timer goes off, and he
goes to get whatever it is. He ends up giving her hot stone massage therapy.
She loves it, and Dr. North says hed like to do some hypnotherapy on her
later. She asks if it is dangerous? He says if it is used by someone who is
devious and unscrupulous then yes. She says that would be someone the
opposite of him. He says all he wants to do is help her. Later they prepare
for the hypnotherapy, and he wants to her drink some herbal tea first to
calm her nerves. As he prepares the tea he dumps something into it. We
dont know if it is just tea or not, but the bad guy music is playing. He
hypnotizes her and takes her back to a time when she was happiest, a time
nobody in her life but her knows about. She says she remembers. He asks her
to remember the man she loved, the man she swore to always love, does she
remember him? She remembers being with a young Alex (real Roman flashbacks).
Marlena says it is her. He says yes, she remembered. They kiss, and as they
do John walks in on them.
September 6, 2005
Phillip and Belle return to the loft. Phillip feels bad that they had to
leave the party early, and he hopes they understand. Belle says of course
they will understand. Belle says hes been waiting for news on this new
prosthesis for awhile now. Phillip says this new prosthesis is supposed to
be amazing, it will be like having his leg back. Phillip is insisting on
going on his own, but he says they still have some time before he goes. They
then kiss. Later they are on the couch, and they have just made love. They
then look over a list of names Belle has come up with for the baby. Belle
says she pulled the most popular names off the social security website, and
then used their family bibles to narrow the list down. She says so far they
have Conner, Tyler and Luke for boys and Claire, Margaret and Hillary for
girls. Belle says now they all have to do is come up with a middle name.
Phillip decides to go jump in the shower, and he says hell be right back.
Belle then realizes she left the door open, what if someone saw them making
love. She goes to close it and sees Shawn and Mimi have just come home. They
are in the hallway being cute together, and Shawn is offering to help fix
her car. Mimi thinks that is sweet and kisses him on the cheek. She also
knows her mom bullied him into this job, but shes glad hes there as
its nice to see a friendly face. Mimi also knows it was hard for him to
see Belle tonight. Shawn says Belle made her decision so he has to move on
with his life. Phillip comes down the steps, sees Belle by the door, and
asks what she is doing? She says she left the door open and someone could
have seen them. Phillip isnt embarrassed though and kisses her. Back out
in the hall, Mimi remembers the Dark Shadows marathon is about to start.
Shawn forgot his keys, and Mimi scolds him. It turns out Mimi forgot hers as
well, and Shawn laughs at her. They wonder what theyll do. They go over
to Phillip and Belles and say they locked themselves out and need their
spare key. Belle says shell go get it. Phillip asks how the jobs are
going, and they say good. They get their key and wish Phillip good luck with
his leg. Shawn and Mimi leave, and Phillip is positive something is going on
with them. Phillip is then buzzed (well the apartment it), his car is here
so he has to go. He says hes heading off and hell see her soon. It
appears hes missing Brady and Chloes wedding because of the fitting,
but he will be back for Lucas and Samis wedding. He tells Belle to just
rest and take care of herself. As soon as Phillip leaves, Belle is hit by
pains. Shawn happened to be in the hallway and hears her crying out. He runs
to Belle and asks what is wrong? She says it is the baby!
At the bachelor party, Bo and Roman discuss the plan to capture Tony. Bo hopes they be able to capture the rest of DiMeras crew, and Roman says especially Stan. Meanwhile, Lucas and Brady celebrate together and discuss how they both learned about Nicole the hard way. Lucas says but now Brady has Chloe. Victor joins them and says nothing will ever come between Brady and Chloe again. Victor takes the moment to toast both Brady and Lucas. He says these fine young men, along with Shawn and Rex Brady, risked their lives to rescue his son Phillip. He then tells Lucas that it is a shame that he and Sami didnt admit their love sooner, and he knows love can change people. He hopes that is true of Sami and he wishes them all the best. Victor says he does hope it works out this time. Lucas says it will as Sami has changed.
At the shower, Abby tells Chelsea that she needs to try and be more social with her new family. Chelsea and Abby argue about her new family. Abby tells Chelsea she needs to get used to them as Billie isnt going anywhere. Chelsea says Abby is wrong. Chelsea says Billie is the only thing standing between her and Patrick. She says however Billie wont be around for much longer. Abby urges her to forget about Patrick, she has Max. Chelsea says Max is a boy and Patrick is a man, a real man. She says she just has t find a way to use her rich family to her advantage. Abby asks what she is planning? Chelsea says shes going to play the lottery and win.
Chloe is opening all her presents, and Billie wonders where Sami is. Kate says the last time she saw her she was running off with one of the strippers. Billie asks her mom to just be happy for Lucas, but Kate says Sami is ruining his life. Billie says fine, be happy for her. Kate says she is happy for her. Chelsea approaches them and asks if they are having fun? They say they are. Chelsea then sucks up to Kate, saying she doesnt think she likes her cousin Sami that much, and she tells Kate how stylish she is and shed love to have her sense of style. Kate thanks her and tells Chelsea she has good style herself. Kate decides she and Chelsea get to know one another better, and its time for a chat alone. Chelsea says shed like that, so they go off together.
Outside, Sami tells Bart that she has done what she was asked and to leave her alone. Bart says he needs to make sure shes not pulling a fast one. Sami insists shes not. Bart says she better not be, otherwise hell out her as Stan, Tonys cross-dressing accomplice. He also says her future with Lucas will be bye-bye! Sami says she risked a lot to get that information of her dads computer, she could have landed in such trouble if she was caught. Bart says not as much trouble as shell be in if the information is bogus. Sami says she is tired of his threats. She says she gave Bart what he wanted so its time she gets what she wants. He says after Tony escapes. She tells him to get out of here, she cant be seen with him. He says they think hes a stripper. Sami says please, with that body? Bonnie walks out and tells Sami everyone has been looking for her, and what she is doing? Sami says she was asking the Lone Ranger to give them another performance as everyone enjoyed his first so much. Sami heads back in, and Bonnie thinks Sami is her competition. Bart tells her not a chance, and Bonnie plants a big kiss on Bart.
Chelsea talks with Kate and warns her how she is her idol. Chelsea says she used to cut her photo out of W magazine all the time. Sami walks up and says since they are cousins she should warn Chelsea that Kate is a bitch. Chelsea says she likes her, and Kate says likewise. Kate says in fact she was just about to offer Chelsea Samis old job at Basic Black. Sami wishes Chelsea luck as shell need it.
Lucas runs into Sami, and she jumps. He wonders why shes so jumpy? Chloe asks them if theyve seen Brady since the bachelor party seems to be over. Lucas says hes around here somewhere. She heads off, and Lucas dances with Sami. He tells Sami that she has made him the luckiest man in the world, shes making all his dreams come true. Sami says she loves him so much, and they kiss.
Kate is leaving Alices and runs into Roman. Roman asks what is wrong, is she not having a good time? He thinks she is upset at seeing Lucas and Sami together and happy. She says no, it isnt true. Roman says it is, and what is sad is they could have been happy, they could have had everything. She tells him to just stop. Roman says breaking her promise to him ruined everything, and he doesnt know how he could have married a woman like her. Victor shows up and asks if there is a problem? Roman says not anymore, and she is all his. Roman walks off, and Victor comforts Kate. Kate asks Victor for help nailing Sami. He says he cant find anything so far, is she sure shes not imagining it? Kate isnt, she knows Sami is involved with Tony somehow. Kate says she has to bring Sami down.
Roman returns to the bar, and later gets a phone call and runs off. Sami asks why hes leaving in such a hurry? He just says police business. Sami thinks Tony has escaped, and she just hopes he isnt caught again.
Chelsea talks to Abby about how Grandma Kate isnt just the lotto, shes the tri-state mega ball. Shes going to make Grandma Kate pay in cash for Bo and Billie abandoning her. Abby says they didnt abandon her, and she needs to think before she does something she regrets. Chelsea tells Abby to stop being so naive, even her problems have problems. Chelsea says she heard Max and Frankie talking, Frankie still loves Jen and would love to get Jack out of the way. Abby says her parents love each other and no one will come between them. Chelsea says that is what Bo and Hope think to, but they will be toast soon. Chelsea goes up to Bo and tells him goodnight. Bo says goodnight to her too and he hopes to see her soon. She also apologizes to him for how horrible shes been. She then gives Bo a hug. Billie watches and is in tears, while Hope is suspicious.
Brady is left alone after the party ends. Hes trying to call someone when the lights go out and music comes on. Chloe walks in, and they share a dance under a disco ball. Later they return to the cabin, but Brady doesnt plan on staying as it is bad luck for him to see her before the wedding. She asks him not to go as she needs him here. He tells her not to be afraid, she wont be alone. Brady says he called her mom to come spend the night. He says hell miss her too, but once they are married theyll be together forever. She says okay, go to your dads and shell see him tomorrow. Brady says goodnight and heads off. Chloe looks around the cabin and then looks at her face in the mirror. She asks God for a miracle and please let tomorrow be perfect so she and Brady can have their dream wedding.
At the cabin, we see a replay of Marlena remembering Alex and sharing a kiss with him just as John walks in. John asks what in the hell is going on here. Dr. North says he can explain. John says how can he explain using his wifes amnesia to get her into bed? Marlena tells John to stop it. She says if John hurts Alex then hell lose her forever! He says she doesnt mean that, but Marlena does. She says if he wont come to terms with Alex in her life then she can never see him again. She tells John that he shouldnt be here. She runs upstairs, and John asks Alex what is going on here. Alex says he walked in on a session, and Marlena wasnt actually kissing him. He says Marlena thought she was kissing the man she loves. Alex claims Marlena had a memory and projected the man onto him. John says you expect me to believe that Marlena thought Alex was him (John). Alex suggests they not get ahead of themselves, there is no way of knowing that man she remembered was John. John thought Alex assured him that hed remember him. Alex says its not his job to convince her that she loves him. Upstairs, Marlena wonders why she kissed Alex, what was she thinking. Alex appears and says she couldnt help herself, she wants him as much as he wants her. It is all a fantasy of course. Marlena heads downstairs and asks John and Alex if they have worked this out? John says Marlena needs to know something, hes done some research and discovered that Dr. North is a fraud. Marlena doesnt believe him, but says why dont they ask Dr. Estrada. She doesnt know a Dr. Estrada. John says she does, she is a close friend of Marlenas from med school. John says that she warned him that Dr. Norths tactics are highly dangerous and risky, and most patients remember in a familiar environment. Alex scolds John for filling Marlenas mind with doubts as he might reverse the progress theyre making. John doesnt see any progress being made, he is taking Marlena home as this experiment is over. Marlena doesnt want to go back, but he says her children are getting married. John says he is her husband and only wants what is best for her. He asks Marlena to trust him and come home. She says no, she wont go back with him.
September 7, 2005
Lucas and Sami return home, and Sami and Lucas get a little bit frisky.
Sami says she did promise him a strip tease. Lucas says it is perfect timing
as Will is at his friend Arthurs tonight. They head into Samis
apartment and Sami starts taking off her clothes. Suddenly Will and his
friend walk in! Sami is of course horrified and holds her dress up. Lucas
tells them to be gentlemen and turn around. Wills friend thinks Samis
mom looks like Hillary Duff. Sami runs off to the bedroom, and Lucas says he
thought Will was spending the night at his friends? Will says they had to
come pick up a few things, and they will go now. Will and his friend then
leave. In the bedroom Sami says she cant believe she was stripping in
front of Will and his friend, and its not as if she doesnt have enough
to be humiliated about. She turns around and sees Bart on the fire escape
looking in! She screams, and Lucas bursts in, as does Will and his friend.
Sami says it was just a mouse, and Bart is now hiding outside on the fire
escape. Will and Arthur leave, and Lucas giggles and says that boy will
never be the same. Sami says Will and his friend must be mortified, but
Lucas says they didnt get a good look at her. Lucas thinks now that the
boys are gone they can pick up where they left off. As he gets frisky, Sami
sees Bart is still on the fire escape watching. She pushes Lucas away and
says Dont! Lucas asks what is wrong with her, she was just all hot
and bothered a moment ago and now shes pushing him away. Sami says
shes just upset about the Will and Arthur fiasco, and they could walk
back in at any moment. She says shell never forget the look on the
kids face. Sami tells Lucas to make sure Will and Arthur are gone, and
shell slip into something more comfortable. Lucas leaves, and Sami goes
outside and deals with Bart. She asks what is his problem? Bart says they
arent finished yet. Sami says they are, and she wants back the Stan
costume in exchange for the codes. Bart says her part isnt done yet, Sami
isnt off the hook until Tony has escaped. Sami asks what is taking him so
long? Bart says all in good time, but if Tony as so much gets a scratch then
it is on her head. Sami says that isnt the deal she agreed to, she got
them the information. She says betrayed her father. Bart says she betrays
everyone, and that is why they are making sure she hasnt betrayed them.
Sami says if something goes wrong with the escape it isnt her fault. He
says she better hope nothing goes wrong or her wedding could turn into her
funeral. Meanwhile Lucas returns and finds the door locked. He hears Sami
telling someone to get out of here. Lucas asks if someone is in there with
her? Back on the fire escape, Sami says Lucas cant find him here so he
has to go. He wont go until he knows the info is good. She says it is,
she got it off her dads computer. Bart eventually leaves, and Sami
returns to her apartment and lets Lucas in. Sami is now sporting a black
negligee. He says he didnt know what she was doing. He says he just
thought that . . . it sounded like someone was in here. Sami says no, just
her. She says and all she wants is him. She then kisses him.
At the cabin, John tells Marlena that Sami will be so disappointed if she doesnt come home for the wedding, and the time will come that she remembers and will be devastated she wasnt there. Marlena says shell see the photographs. John says and shell cry because she isnt in any of them. John begins to think that Marlena doesnt want to remember, and he doesnt think Dr. North is helping her at all. Dr. North says they are making progress. John doesnt see any progress, and thinks his wife would be better off in Salem. Dr. North disagrees, and he says it is ultimately up to Marlena. John says hes not asking her to come back for him, but for herself and her children. Marlena says she wants to go back and be there for her children, but she cant, it is too early. She says she cant take the pressure of everyone wanting her to remember. Marlena wants Alexs opinion. John says this isnt up to him, but Marlena says she trusts Alex and wants his opinion. Alex asks what her instincts tell her? Marlena says her instincts tell her to be there for her children. She says she doesnt know them or remember them, but she is their mother. Alex thinks she has made her decision. Marlena asks what is best for her? He thinks she should go back to Salem, but only if he is there to treat her. John says over his cold dead body! Marlena says just because she has no memory doesnt mean he is in charge of her. John says hes sorry, and as long as she is his wife that it is his duty to care for her. Marlena thinks then he would want her to have the best care possible, and undermining her trust in Alex isnt helping. John says he is afraid of this man and what hes doing. Marlena says she thinks Johns intentions are well, but she trusts Alex and doesnt care what he or anyone else thinks. She says she is not going anywhere without Alex. Marlena breaks down in tears, and John says he knows she is confused. She says shes not, she has no memory but she does have clarity. She says she knows where she is and what she needs. John says and you think you need Dr. North? Marlena wants to tell John something and she wants him to listen. He says hes listening. Marlena says the only reason she would go back is for her children. She says she doesnt know them or remember them, but she is their mother and it is her desire to be there for them. John says hes glad. Marlena says that is it though. She says if she is going back to Salem then she needs Alexs support and guidance. John says fine if that is the only way. She says it is. He says then he has no choice but to accept it. Marlena says good because Alex is here to stay.
At Belles place, Mimi shows up and finds Shawn with Belle. Mimi asks if it is the baby? Shawn says yes and he asks Mimi to try and catch Phil. Shawn goes to call Dr. Bader, but shes on vacation and Lexie is covering for her. Shawn calls Lexie, and Lexie says shell be right over. Shawn tells Belle that Lexie is on her way now. Belle tells Shawn she is scared, what if she loses this baby? Mimi returns and says Phillip is gone and he seems to have turned his cell phone off. Lexie shows up, and Mimi comments that was quick Lexie examines Belle. Belle begs Lexie to tell her that she wont lose the baby. Lexie doesnt know what is causing this and she needs to give her a more thorough exam. She does say the babys heartbeat is strong so she wont lose the baby. Shawn and Mimi leave, and they discuss the baby in the hall. Shawn says Belle is lucky they were here, if this was something more serious who know what could have happened. Meanwhile, Lexie questions Belle as to what she was doing when the cramps came on, and how regular the cramps are. Belle tries to answer her questions, saying she was having an evening at home with Phillip. Lexie asks if Belle has been sexually active? Belle says yes, and asks if that is a problem. She asks if it caused premature labor? LExie says she is not in labor, and there doesnt seem to be a physical explanation for the cramps. She says perhaps Belle knows what is causing them. Belle hasnt a clue what Lexie is talking about. Lexie thinks it is stress, and she asks if anything has happened to bring her blood pressure up? Belle thinks about a fight she had with Shawn about Mimi, and Belle says there are a few things. Lexie tells Belle she needs to take care of herself, relax and take it easy. Lexie thinks it is all stress. However she wants Belle to see Dr. Bader as soon as she comes back. Belle says she will, and Lexie leaves. Back outside, Shawn worries about Belle and the baby. Mimi doubts Belle is losing the baby, if she was then Lexie would be wanting to get her to the hospital. Shawn just wishes he knew what was wrong. To herself Mimi thinks she knows what is wrong. Lexie comes out and tells Mimi and Shawn that Belle and the baby will be fine. LExie says she thinks the problem is stress related. She says Belle needs to take it easy and not let things upset her. Shawn decides to walk Lexie to her car, and Mimi goes in to check on Belle. Belle thanks Mimi for being here for her as she was so worried. Mimi says shes sure she was, but not about the baby. Mimi says she was worried she was losing Shawn. Mimi thinks Belle was using the baby to reel Shawn back in, and it has to stop now. Belle says that is low, and she thinks Mimi is trying to cost her this baby by giving her stress. Mimi says nothing is wrong with her baby and it drives her mad that Shawn is moving on without her. Belle wants Mimi to admit she wants to be more than friends with Shawn. Mimi says that is her business, and what matters is Shawn is her friend and she doesnt want to see him hurt. She tells Belle that she has hurt Shawn enough and to leave him alone. Shawn returns, and Belle gets rid of him by asking him to go get pillows from her bed. Mimi warns Belle, she married Phillip even though she didnt love him. She says now she is pregnant, and shes stuck with it, so good luck. However Mimi tells Belle not to drag Shawn back into her life now that hes moving on. She says she doesnt know what the future holds for her or Shawn, but Mimi wants Belle to stay out of both of their lives.

She says fine, and she leaves. Roman gets onto his computer and sees something he doesnt like. Detective Adams returns and says the corrections facility needs the info on Tonys transfer. He says he can get them from the PC, but Roman says no. Roman says he trusts detective Adams, so hes letting him on this. He says the information on the PC is bogus in case someone decides to hack into his PC. He says it wont do Tony any good, but hopefully it will help them catch his helpers. Roman says the real information is safely hidden away, and he wont let anything cost them losing Tony now.
