At Lucas' place, Sami shows up to check on Will. Lucas says Will is spending the night at the pub with his grandparents. Lucas says he has some plans for tonight. Sami says what with some girl. Lucas says yes and he thinks he knows who. She looks around and sees her favorite flowers out. She thinks Lucas wants to have her over tonight. He says no, he made a mistake and confused her and Carrie. He says his plans are for him and Carrie. Sami says fine, be with Carrie, she'll be with Austin anyways. He says not after the way she's burned Austin, neither one of them will have anything to do with her. She says just watch, she will end up with Austin.
In the hallway, Austin and Carrie run into one another. Austin was hoping he'd see her, he'd like to talk to her about some things. Carrie fantasizes that Austin tells her how much he loves her and kisses her. Austin simply asks if they can meet later tonight to talk. Carrie says she'd like that.
At Salem Park, Lexie runs away from Tek after he grabs and kisses her. She then runs into Carrie. Carrie needs some advice, so they sit down to talk. At this point Sami shows up and spies on them from the bushes. She spies on them as they talk. Carrie wonders if it is possible to be in love with two men at once. Lexie says yes, but who are the men? She assumes one is Austin. Carrie says yes, she thought she had gotten rid of her feelings for him after he took over her company, but she hadn't .She says the other is Lucas. Carrie says what makes this even more complicated is that Sami wants them both as well. Carrie says Sami is still in love with Lucas, but since he wants nothing to do with her she is moving on. Carrie says Sami was honest with her about her intentions towards Austin, and at the time she was still angry with Austin so told Sami to go for it. Lexie says and now she regrets that. Carrie does. Lexie suggest Carrie not worry about Sami in all of this. Carrie says Lexie is right, after all Sami had her chance with both of them and blew it. Sami is furious when she hears this and thinks maybe Carrie should find a new guy or go back to Mike. Lexie says Carrie needs to figure out which man she loves more. She says close your eyes and say the name of the man you feel you love more. Carrie of course says Austin. Lexie tells her then she knows what she has to do. Lexie says tell Lucas the truth, the sooner the better. Carrie thanks her and leaves. Then Tek returns and grabs and kisses Lexie. They head into the bushes where Sami is hiding, causing her to have to move a bit and hide elsewhere. Sami watches as Tek and Lexie make love! She can't believe what a hypocrite Lexie is and how this information could be useful. Sami then sees Carrie sitting on a park bench and doubling over in pain calling out for help. Sami makes a face like Carrie is faking.
At the Brady Pub, Austin shows up to see Caroline. He says he's planning a surprise dinner for Carrie, he'd like all her favorite foods. Caroline says okay, and he should have a seat and wait. Once Austin sits down, Lucas comes down the steps and thanks Caroline for letting Will stay the night. Caroline says Shawn will love having someone to watch the game with. Lucas then asks Caroline for a favor, he needs Carrie's favorite desert, he's surprising her with a romantic dinner tonight. Lucas says oh boy! Lucas asks Caroline if she thinks he has a shot with Carrie. Caroline says yes, and she likes him very much. She says she liked him with Sami too. She asks Lucas if he thinks there is no hope for him and Sami, but he says none. Later the boys orders are ready, so she gives them to them and they head off.
Back in the hallway at Sami and Lucas' building, Austin and Lucas run into one another with their bags of food. Lucas thinks Austin is having a late working night with Sami, but he says no. He asks Lucas what he's planning? Lucas says he has a hot date with Carrie. Lucas heads into his apartment and Bo says he's afraid he can't let that date happen.
On Morgan Island, Hope falls over the cliff as she goes to save James, whom she mistakes for Zack. However she only falls to a ledge below where James happens to be standing. However the added weight is making it crumble. Patrick rushes to save them. He lowers a rope and James climbs up first. Before Hope can, the ledge gives way. Hope hangs onto a tree branch, and Patrick moves the rope over to her. He pulls her up, but something is wrong, she can't feel her legs. Patrick thinks they need to call Bo, so he calls Bo on his phone. He hands it to Hope, but she just hangs up. A doctor is brought in and examines Hope. He says she has some swelling in her back/spine which is causing the loss of sensation in her legs, it shouldn't last too long. He says she will need bed rest. Patrick insists he look after Hope at her place. Later Hope wakes up in Patrick's bed. She didn't even realize she had fallen asleep. He brings her tea and insists he take care of her until she's better.
At the church, Father Jansen warns Mimi that if she doesn't tell Shawn the truth about Claire then he can't marry her. She says if she tells him the truth then she'll lose him, SHawn has very strong feelings about family and that a child should be raised by its parents together. Father Jansen says he cannot marry her and Shawn in church when there is a lie between them. Mimi leaves the confessional and finds Bo and Shawn still arguing. She goes to Shawn and says she has something important to ask of him, she needs his forgiveness. She asks SHawn to forgive his father, do this for her. She says this wedding should bring people together, not drive them apart. He agrees to forgive Bo, saying it is what Zack would want. Bo just hopes Hope can forgive him now. Bo gets a strange feeling that Hope is in danger right now. He gets a phone call, but nobody speaks, and the number is blocked. Bo goes to light a candle and pray for Zack. Later Mimi and Shawn continue their talk. She brings up Claire and their duty to them. He says they have an important duty as her godparents. She tries to tell him that he's the father of Claire, but she chickens out. Shawn then begins talking about how he hopes to start a family with her soon, and he is glad she made him forgive his father. He says his dad was good to him and Zack, and he is just being good to Chelsea as well. Shawn says he doesn't know what he'd do if he found out he had a child and had been lied to about it, he'd hate the person who didn't tell him. Later they prepare to leave, and Shawn tells Father Jansen they'll see him tomorrow. Father Jansen says "then Mimi told you."
Back at the Brady Pub, Bo arrives to talk to his mom about Hope. He says Hope left him a text message saying she'd be back for Chelsea's trial and that he has to choose between her and Chelsea. Caroline feels terrible for the position Bo has been put in. She feels Bo needs to go after Hope, but Bo says Hope made it clear she wants to be alone right now.
Alex comes into Marlenas room to see her. Marlena says shes been
thinking about something, the bracelet he gave her seems like it should have
been engraved, why didnt he engrave it. To himself he says because he dug it
out of a hospital trashcan. Alex says he wasnt sure shed like it or not.
She says of course she does, she likes everything he gives her. He says then
hell have it engraved. She asks what hell have it say? To himself he says
Dear Bracelet, I found you just in time, you saved me from the hangmans
noose. Ill always love you, Alex. Alex tells her that hell keep it
simple. He says Lexie is here to see her, and Marlena says shed like to see
her. Alex lets LExie in. Alex then leaves them. Marlena asks Lexie how she is.
Lexie says shes fine. Marlena asks how Abe is doing. Lexie says hes been
home for some time, hes getting his sight back but is having trouble with his
night vision. Marlena says shes so great standing by him all this time. Lexie
says well he is her husband. Lexie says the reason she is here is because John
is worried about her. Marlena asks why? Suddenly Alex rushes in saying that
Marlena is his wife, she is none of Johns concern. Alex says once they renew
their vows then John will be out of their lives forever. Alex says he wont
let Lexie continue to be Marlena's doctor if she continues to undermine her
confidence in him. She says she understands. Alex says if he seems
overprotective it is because Lexie pronounced a few dozen people dead, including
Marlena. Alex says he only has Marlenas best interests at mind. Lexie also
points out that she was the one who recommended John bring in Dr. North as a
consult. Lexie asks Marlena how shes been feeling. She says shes fine,
shes not sleeping well thought. She says shes just taking an over the
counter medication for sleeping. Lexie asks to see it, so she gives it to Lexie.
Lexie asks if they help her sleep. Marlena says yes, they make her a little
groggy. Lexie asks Dr. North to excuse them and let her examine Marlena. Dr.
North says no, she is feeling fine as se said. North says thank you for stopping
by, but now he will see her out. Alex basically drags Lexie out of Marlenas
room, and she finds that a bit odd. Later, Marlena asks Alex if he thinks he was
a little rude to Lexie. Alex says no, she was here spying for John. He changes
the topic, he has a surprise for her. He says he has found the perfect place for
their second honeymoon. He shows her a brochure and says its the perfect
isolated hideaway, nobody will find them and interrupt them. Marlena asks how
long they will be gone? He says long enough to forget about John, Lois and all
the other bad things that have happened these last few months. Marlena says she
feels so bad about Lois. Alex says shed still be with them if John hadnt
given her that truth serum. Marlena says she knows, and the only person she had
to help her was Alex. Alex says speaking of Lois, he just got a letter naming
him the executer of her estate. He says he wont do it though. Marlena thinks
he should, she feels guilty about what happened. Alex says it was John who
caused Lois death, she has nothing to blame herself for. Marlena thanks him,
but she thinks they should at least be responsible for the burial. She also
wonders what they are to do with her belongings. Alex thinks about his time with
Lois up at some cabin of hers. Alex hoped she didn't have any photos of them
lying around, it would ruin their plans if someone found them. Lois said she had
them tucked away. Alex tells MArlena he has to go run an errand, he just
realized he has a few things to do at the travel agent for the honeymoon. He
then runs off.
John meets with Abe and Tek at the pub. Abe doesnt like having Lexie go over there, if this puts her life at risk . . . John says Lexie is the reason North is in their lives to begin with. Abe says Lexie was just trying to help, she had no way of knowing any of this would happen. John says the bottom line is that Lexie is responsible for Marlenas treatment, especially after last night. Abe asks what John was thinking breaking into the penthouse. John says he was looking for the evidence to prove what Alex said to him. John tells Abe and Tek what happened last night, that Marlena knew him said she loved him, but was also confused about Alex. John tells Abe and Tek that they would have acted the same way if they had seen how Marlena was acting. He wanted to take her out of there right then, but LExie insisted she leave her there as he could have placed her in more danger from Alex. They ask John how he got out of the penthouse? We see flashbacks of John going out on the terrace to hide as Alex checked on Marlena. Once Alex left, he snuck out. Abe tells John that he has to be more careful, hes playing into Alexs hands. Abe says John is being too careless, what would have happened if Alex found him last night. Lexie shows up and says that is what she told him. Lexie tells John that she observed Marlena carefully as they were talking, she saw no evidence that Marlena was under the influence of any psychoactive drugs. She also looked at the medicine shes taking, its a common sleeping pill. John says last night Marlena was completely out of it. Lexie says the simple explanation is that Marlena was groggy and confused last night. John says so she thinks Marlena was so out of it that she didnt know it was him that she was kissing. Lexie says shes sorry, she may have thought he was Alex. John doesnt know what to do anymore. Abe says he needs to stay away from them. John asks Abe what hed do if some jerk was out to get Lexie, would he stay away from them? Tek and Lexie casts looks at each other. Abe says he wouldnt stop until he ran the son of a bitch out of Lexies life. Tek asks John what hes going to do though, every time he tries to do something he comes off looking like the bad guy. Abe believes Alex killed Lois and framed John, but he says they have no proof against Alex for anything. John suddenly realizes there is a way for Lois to tell them everything they need to know, from the grave. He tells Abe they should go. Abe asks where, and John says hell see. Abe doesnt want to leave Lexie alone right now if Alex is getting suspicious, so Tek offers to stay with her. Lexie says that is fine with her. John and Abe then leave. Tek tells Lexie he had a great time with her in the park. Lexie tells Tek that they cant do that again. She tells him that she cant do this, but Tek says she can. He says shes just feeling guilty, come with him and give into what they both want. Lexie says fine, shell leave first and meet him at his car. Lexie leaves, followed by Tek.
Alex goes to Lois cabin and begins looking for photos of him and Lois together. Later, Alex begins rigging the furnace to blow the whole cabin up. As Alex leaves the cabin, John and Abe arrive at the doorstep and wonder what hes doing here. Back at the penthouse, Marlena begins having memories of being in bed with John last night. She wonders why she cant stop thinking about John when shes married to Alex.
Outside of the church, Belle, Phillip and Claire arrive. Bonnie is someone nearby. Phillip and Bonnie are on their phones, it seems like they are talking to each other about some kind of plan.
In the church, Father Jansen thinks that Mimi has told Shawn the truth. He says the truth about what? Father Jansen says about Claire. Shawn says they had a long talk about Claire. Mimi flashes back to their talk about Claire, but she did not tell Shawn the truth. Mimi tells Father Jansen that they talked all about Shawns responsibilities to Claire. Shawn says they did, and they are ready to get married. Father Jansen thought Shawn would want his own child in his life. Shawn says yes but he loves Mimi so much that he doesnt mind adopting with her. Father Jansen misunderstands and thinks Mimi has told Shawn. He gives them his blessing and says hell be happy to marry them tomorrow. As they are leaving, Shawn tells Mimi that he has something special planned for her, he wants to take her somewhere nice.
Shawn takes Mimi to someplace in the park where a gazebo has been decorated for them. Belle and Phillip soon show up and see them together, as does Bonnie. Shawn tells Mimi he wants to spend the rest of his life with her. Belle doesnt look too happy as they kiss. Shawn says this is kind of a rehearsal dinner for tomorrow, to thank them all for what theyve done for them. Shawn them makes a practice toast to Mimi, saying how lucky he is to have her, how much he loves her and how hell always be faithful to her. They toast and Shawn and Mimi share another kiss. Belle slurps down her champagne. Mimi thanks them all for this, this was sweet. Phillip says it was all Shawns idea. Phillip then asks Mimi for a dance, and Shawn shares a dance with Belle. Shawn talks about how he can't believe he is getting married tomorrow. Belle says she can't help but wonders if hes going to change his mind about this marriage. Shawn says he loves Mimi, and she and Phillip have each other. Belle says the two of them . . . . Shawn says are over, so stop torturing them both and pretending they arent. He says if she cant be happy for them then he doesnt want her there. Later, Phillip tells Shawn not to sweat the small stuff tomorrow, just enjoy his day. Shawn says it means a lot that they are still friends after what he did to Phillip and Shawns wedding. Phillip says he is happy for Shawn and he and Mimi will have what he and Belle have. To herself, Belle says she has to stop this wedding.
Meanwhile, Bonnie tells Mimi that this is it, tomorrow all their dreams come true. She says Mimi will marry Shawn and cash in on his trust fund. Mimi says Father Jansen wont marry them if she isnt honest with Shawn. She says she hasnt told Shawn, but Father Jansen thinks she has. She says now shes lying to a priest on top of everything. Bonnie says this is the right thing to do. Mimi cant believe that. Bonnie says well it is the smart thing to do. Mimi doesnt know if she can take her vows while keeping this from Shawn. Bonnie says the vows say love and honor, they dont say anything about telling the truth about babies. Bonnie tells Mimi to just keep her eyes on the prize, make Shawn her husband tomorrow and live happily ever after.
At the park, Sami sees Carrie on the ground in pain. Sami remembers what Carrie said to Lexie about her, and she wonders why she should even care about her sister. She then realizes that Carrie is her sister and she has to help her. Carrie recovers, and so Sami says she should get out of here. Sami then sneezes. Carrie asks if someone is there? Sami pretends to walk out and say hello to Carrie. She says she looks terrible, is she okay? Carrie says she got a really bad cramp, but shes okay now. Sami tells Carrie that they need to get her to a doctor, they should go. Carrie tells Sami it means a lot that they are getting closer, so she needs to be honest with Sami about what is going on between her and Austin. Sami thinks she knows what Carrie wants to say, she wants to move on with her life, but Austin still wants to be with her. Sami says that Austin will have to come to terms with Carrie's decision. Sami wont let Carrie get a word in. She talks about how Lucas and her are finished, and she knows Lucas is interested in Carrie. Sami says she wants Carrie to be happy, and she knows Carrie wants her to be happy too. Carrie says she does want her to be happy, but she needs to be honest. Sami says she knows Carrie wouldnt do anything to hurt her. Sami hugs Carrie and says shes such a great big sister, shes so lucky to have her.
Austin knocks on Lucas door looking for Carrie. Lucas says shes not here and it will have to wait till tomorrow. Austin says no, hes having dinner with Carrie tonight. Lucas says like hell you are. Austin tells Lucas that he knows he has plans with Carrie, but they arent going to happen. Austin tells Lucas that he didnt want to hurt him, but Carrie has feelings for him still. Lucas says yeah she hates him for stealing her company and wants nothing to do with him. Austin says hes dreaming if he thinks that. Austin tells Lucas hes a weasel, he sat back and watched him do what he did to her company. He says Lucas hurt her just as much. Lucas says not his problem, and its not his problem that Carrie doesnt love him anymore. Austin says thats not true and thats not the problem, the problem is Lucas. Austin says Lucas cant accept that Carrie doesnt love him and never will. Lucas says he knows he can win Carries heart, and hes the one living with her. Austin says this is stupid, hes done arguing with him. He says when Carrie gets here then she can decide. Sami and Carrie then walk into the apartment. Lucas and Austin both invite Carrie to have a special dinner with them. Lucas asks Carrie who it will be? Carrie looks at them both, and Sami just looks pissed.

Saint Patricks Day is in full swing at the Brady Pub. Victor talks with Caroline, she says this is the busiest night of the year for them, and with everything they have gone through this year they could use some happiness. Shawn Sr. says that is right, and they all toast to Shawn and Mimi. Caroline makes the rounds as she sees some empty glasses. She finds Belle all by herself and Caroline asks why shes here all alone drinking a pitcher by herself. She says the wedding is tomorrow, shouldnt she be getting some sleep?

Caroline asks what shes going to do? Belle says she doesnt know. Caroline cant believe shes serious. Drunk Belle says she loves Shawn and he loves her, she wont let him to commit to another woman. Caroline asks what about Phillip? She says she loves Phillip, but its not the same. Caroline says she took vows before God, she has a baby girl, how can she destroy their happiness and Shawn and Mimi's happiness. Belle says the last thing she wants to do is hurt anyone, but she loves Shawn too much to spend her life without him. Victor, who is listening, knows she feels a bond with Shawn because Claire is his baby. Caroline tells Belle that if she leaves Phillip for another man, she will have to fight custody for Claire. Belle says Phillip wouldnt do that, he would want Claire to be with her. Caroline says but Shawn is Phillips best friend. She also says Mimi is her best friend. Caroline tells Belle she was hurt and angry when Mimi fell in love with Shawn, so dont expect Phillip to feel differently. She says hurt and anger drive people to do things they normally wouldnt do.
