Lucas bursts into Samis place. He wants answers from Austin as to why he thinks hell be with Carrie. Sami opens her mouth, but Lucas tells her to shut up and get out. Austin says this is her house and he shouldnt talk to her like that. Lucas asks Sami if she could please leave, but Sami wont go as this is her apartment and concerns her as well. Lucas says he wont have this discussion in front of Sami. Sami tells him to leave then. Austin tells Sami that they need to talk so do this for him. Sami says okay, but only because Austin asked her to. Sami leaves, and she listens at the door. Lucas knows shes doing that and opens the door to catch her. He says shes pathetic and predictable. She says she was just looking for her car keys. He says they are where she always keeps them. Sami then storms off. Lucas and Austin then begin their argument. Lucas tells Austin that he knows what is going on between him and Carrie and he wont get away with it. Lucas says Carrie wont dump him, they are engaged. Austin says engagements can be broken off. Lucas thinks Austin wants Carrie to dump him. Austin says he wants Carrie to do what Carrie wants to do. Lucas asks Austin when hell accept that Carrie is with him. Austin says he will never accept it, Carrie belongs with him and Carrie knows it too. Lucas says if Carrie is questioning anything then it is because Austin put the squeeze on her when they were handcuffed together. He says what they had is over and Austin is holding onto this desperate hope that it isn't. Lucas says he feels sorry for Austin, this cant be easy for him but he has to get over Carrie. He says Carrie loves him now and wont ever love Austin again. Austin says hes not giving up on Carrie and he doesnt think Carries given up on him. Lucas says he understands, if he was going to lose a woman like Carrie then he wouldnt give up on her either. Austin asks why he gave up on Sami then? 

Mimi and Shawn arrive at the hospital, they are going to meet with Lexie about the in vitro fertilization. Mimi says she never dreamed theyd have their own baby. Shawn says he told her that hed make her dreams come true once they got married. Mimi asks if hes sure hes okay with adopting if this doesnt work. Shawn says yes, he told her that he was. Mimi just hopes IVF works for them. Shawn cant wait to spoil her rotten when shes pregnant. She says but shell also get big and fat and have swollen ankles and he wont want to have sex with her. He says hell always want to have sex with his wife. Mimi says they shouldnt get ahead of themselves, this is expensive. Shawn says so is adoption. Mimi says does it feel selfish that they are doing this when there are so many kids who need homes. Shawn says if they feel that bad then they can adopt as well. Mimi still doesnt know if it will work, but Shawn thinks the odds are good. Mimi just doesnt want to get their hopes up, but she says just imagine that in nine months they could be at the nursery looking into their own baby. To herself she thinks if she can give Shawn his own child then it will make up for not telling him about Claire. Mimi tells Shawn that she knows he wants a boy, but a girl would be okay right. He says sure, as long as she likes soccer and race cars. Mimi says but it would be okay if she was a girly girl right. He says sure, but shell be athletic. Mimi says he better be kidding, and the same goes for a boy, if he wants to be a fashion designer as opposed to a baseball player then that is fine. Shawn says sure . . . he could . . . design clothes for his dad. Mimi says she doesnt think they will have much decision in what they will be. Shawn says speaking of they, the research shows the chances at having twins with IVF is much higher. Mimi has a vision of having twins, a boy and a girl. Mimi ends up liking Erin for a girl's name, and Shawn likes Aaron for the boy. Shawn says they cant use the same name, so Shawn suggests they flip a coin. Mimi thinks she gets to chose because she did all the work. Mimi doesnt know which baby shes holding, and so Shawn checks the diapers and says Mimi has the girl. Mimi soon snaps back to reality.

In Lexies office, Lexie tells Carrie that shes let Tom Horton down and shes let Carrie down. Carrie asks how she let her down? Lexie says she knows how she feels about Austin and she really does belong with him. Before Lexie can tell her anything, Abe shows up and asks if he can come in. Carrie tells Lexie to give her a call once she finishes looking at the tests and then theyll talk. Abe comes in with flowers, hes sorry to interrupt. Carrie says its just a follow up visit. Abe says he saw these flowers and through of Lexie, he has realized how much he cherishes her and how he and Theo couldnt bare to have lost her. Carrie says shell leave them alone, but Lexie asks Carrie to stick around as she does need to talk to her. Carrie says okay. Carrie leaves, and Abe tells Lexie how he knows its been hard for her because he hasnt been able to be a real husband to her. She says he is a real husband and she doesnt want to lose him. Abe says before this cancer scare he was beginning to think she had had it with him and wanted out. Lexie says no, and that she never wants to lose him. Abe is happy and says he loves her so much. They hug. He tells her he was so late last night because of a drug raid at Dune. Lexie asks if he found any drugs. He says no, everything was clean. However he says a couple of people escaped through a window, hes pretty sure they were hiding something. Abe tells Lexie how nothing means more to him than his marriage and family. He says hes sorry for thinking she was pulling away from him, he was the one pulling away. He says he wants to fix that. She says that sounds good to her. He says he has to get back to work, but he loves her.

Carrie waits outside of Lexies office. She thinks about kissing Austin at the club. Later Lexie finds that Carrie is still here. Carrie says she signed up to volunteer at the nursery and was just getting the orientation packet. Lexie hopes it wont be too hard for her working with the babies. Carrie doesnt think so. Shawn and Mimi show up to meet with Lexie. Lexie tells Carrie that shell call her with any results, and Carrie heads off. Lexie talks with Mimi and Shawn and details to them how the procedure will go. Shawn asks what are the odds that it will work. Lexie says the fact that Mimi is young is in her favor, its the same success rate as a naturally conceived pregnancy. Lexie says the pregnancy will be like any other pregnancy, so shell have to take all the same health precautions. Mimi asks when they can begin, and Lexie says right away. Shawn thinks then they should start now. Lexie says today may be too soon. She suspects they have been making love a lot since they are newly weds. She says for IVF to work they have to abstain for a few days. She also gives Mimi a prescription for pre-natal vitamins. Lexie then sends them to OB to meet with a specialist. 

Carrie runs into Sami at the hospital. Sami asks Carrie why shes here. Carrie says Lexie is running some tests. Sami says she is here looking for her earring she lost. They end up at the nursery, and Sami talks about how adorable the babies are. Sami remembers when Will was that small. She says Will has been through so much, and when she first found out she was pregnant she did everything wrong. She says shes glad Will turned out healthy. Sami says she hopes she has another baby again. Sami tells Carrie how her kids will be perfect, and it was sweet of her to donate that charity money to families with children who have birth defects. She says their own family has had some scary baby issues. Sami talks about mom's miscarriage and Claire's health problems. Sami says she cant imagine having to go up against genetics. Sami says Carrie doesnt have to worry about that though, she and Lucas will have perfect kids. Carrie becomes upset and says she has to go. Sami says she does too, she has a meeting. 

Carrie returns to Samis place where Austin and Lucas are still arguing. Austin tells Carrie that hes glad she stopped by, they need to talk. Lucas tells Carrie that he knows Austin is pressuring her, but she needs to tell Austin that its over between them and that shes marrying him. Carrie hopes Lexie will hurry up and call and tell her that she can be with Austin.

Back at the hospital, Sami drops by to see Lexie. Lexie of course isnt happy to see her, she asks what she wants now. Sami says she wanted to remind her that if she says anything to Carrie then she will lose her husband and family. Lexie tells Sami that she just helped her make a decision, shes not putting up with this anymore. She says shes calling Carrie and telling her the truth!

In the woods, Billie and Bo wake up in each others arms. Billie wakes up first and is all smiles. She gives Bo a kiss. He of course says Hopes name, which throws Billie. She tells him to wake up, hes not with Hope. Bo says hes sorry. Billie thinks he was dreaming of her. Bo doesnt think so, but she does. Bo says hes sorry, but he didnt call her Hope last night when they were making love. Bo says he wanted her last night. Billie says she believes him, but she also knows he did it to forget about Hope. Bo says he wasnt using her to forget Hope. Billie tells Bo this might make it easier for him, she never would have slept with him if she thought he had a chance with Hope still. Bo and Billie discuss how it really is over between Bo and Hope. Bo says he doesnt know if hell ever be free to move on and love again, and he doesnt want to lead her on. Billie says shes a big girl, and she just wants to help him anyway she can. He says she has and he appreciates it more than hell know. Bo says they better get back to town now. 

Bo and Billie head to the pub for some breakfast. Caroline serves them, she doesnt seem to be happy to see Bo with Billie. Caroline tells Bo that she left a lot of messages for him, why didnt he call her back. He says hes sorry, is everything okay. She says yes. Billie and Bo order some breakfast, and Caroline asks Bo if hes heard from Hope? When is she coming back? Bo says he doesnt think Hope is coming back. Caroline tells Bo he has to talk her out of the divorce. Bo says hes tried, she wont speak to him. Caroline tells Bo not to accept that hes lost Hope, he has to fight no matter what. Billie says she told him the same thing, she knows better than anyone that Bo and Hope belong together. Caroline says everyone knows it, but she thinks if Billie is honest that it wont break her heart if they split up. Bo becomes upset and defensive of Billie. He tells his mom to get them breakfast so he can go to work. Caroline walks off, and Bo tells Billie that hes sorry about that. She tells him its okay, she doesnt blame Caroline for hating her. Bo says she doesnt hate her. Billie says its okay, she is the reason Hope left him. Bo says no he is the reason, he is responsible for his own mistakes with Hope, Shawn and Zack as well as with her and Chelsea. Billie says no, hes been so good to her. Billie says he made her realize she deserved happiness. Bo says she does, and hes glad she got rid of Lockhart. They begin arguing over Patrick and if hes guilty of being a killer. Bo says hes bringing him in before he hurts other women. Meanwhile, Caroline calls Frankie and asks for a favor, she needs Hopes phone number.

On Morgan Island, Hope is in bed with Patrick and shes remembering the night before. Patrick wakes up first and looks over at Hope. He caresses her hair. She smiles and calls out Bos name. Hope also says Good morning Brady. Patrick says good morning, and Hope tells him that shes so sorry. He says its okay, they both know her heart is still with Bo. Hope says a part of her is with him, but hes moved on and she has to do the same thing. Hope tells Patrick that last night was very special, but shes afraid it was a mistake. Patrick says hes sorry if he pushed her, but she says he didnt. Hope says she just realizes shes not ready, she doesnt see herself as a single woman yet. Patrick says he understands, she feels like shes cheating on Bo. Hope remembers seeing Bo sleeping with Billie, she doesnt understand why shes tied to her conscious when he isnt. She says even though the ring is off her finger she still feels married. She wishes things were different, but they arent. She says its over with her and Bo, and she doesnt want to talk about it anymore. There is a knock at the door. Patrick goes to get it, he ordered breakfast for them. A man brings in breakfast for them. Underneath the cart are tons of gifts all for Hope. They are all sorts of perfumes and things. Hope thinks Patrick did this for her, but he says they are compliments of the hotel. She asks why? Patrick says hes done them favors in the past. Hope wonders what favors, but she says he doesnt have to tell her. Hope tells Patrick she doesnt want to lead him on, but she cant make love to him again until the divorce is final. Patrick says thats okay, and he hopes they can still kiss till then. They share a kiss. 


May 9, 2006

On Morgan Island, Patrick and Hope are sitting on their balcony of their hotel room. Patrick suggests they bike to the other side of the island and do some diving and snorkeling. Hope thinks that sounds great. Hope's phone rings, so she takes it. It is Caroline calling, so Patrick lets her have some privacy. Caroline wants Hope to talk to Bo, to give him another chance. Hope says that won't happen, Bo is moving on with his life and she has to do the same. Hope talks about Bo being with Billie now, and Caroline admits Bo has been spending a lot of time with Billie. However she feels Bo and Hope belong together. Caroline knows Hope still loves Bo, and Hope admits she does. However she says that's not enough. Hope becomes upset with Caroline and eventually hangs up. Meanwhile, Patrick gets a call from someone, he's a bit angry that they tracked him down here. He says he's on vacation, he's not working. Patrick learns Alex North asked for him personally, so Patrick asks what he wants. Later, Patrick returns to Hope, and she cries on his shoulder. He says divorce is hard, especially when the attorneys are family. He thinks it was the lawyer calling.

In their room, Alex is on his PC typing up a letter about a new life insurance policy that he's taken out on Marlena. He says once Marlena is gone he'll be set for life. Marlena walks in and sees what he's doing, she's shocked. He says she wasn't supposed to see this, but she says she did. Marlena wants to know why he's taking this policy out on her. Alex walks over to her and fiddles with the necklace he gave her. He tells her never to take this off, it's a token of his love. She agrees not to. The necklace acts as a hypnotic device, sending Marlena into a zombie like state. She forgets about the life insurance for a moment, but snaps out of it and asks why he's taking it out. He says it is for protection in case anything ever happens to one of them. He says not only will it protect them, but her children as well. She thinks he's thought of everything.

At the station, John shows up to see Bo, he has proof Alex is going to kill Marlena. He says Alex is selling Marlena's penthouse and all her belongings. Bo says that isn't exactly proof. Bo talks to John about how they both agreed to fight for their wives, but there comes a time that they have to give up and respect their wishes. Bo says maybe Marlena wants to be with Alex. John won't accept this. Bo says he has bigger things to deal with right now, like catching Patrick Lockhart. Bo has to leave, and later John gets a call from Alex. Alex is calling to torment John a bit more about Marlena. He tells John he and Marlena are in paradise right now. John says he knows what he plans to do to Marlena. Alex says of course John knows, he told him of his plans that night in the morgue. Marlena comes into the room, and Alex begins calling her his beautiful wife and how he loves her. MArlena says and she loves him. John hears all of this over the phone and yells out to Marlena. She of course doesn't hear John on the phone. John says he won't let Alex get away with this, but Alex says he's already gotten away with it. 

Marlena steps out onto her terrace and is shocked when she sees Hope and Patrick on the terrace next to them kissing. Marlena says "Hope is that you?"

At Mimi and Shawn's, Shawn comes home with a present for Mimi, it's a rocking horse. She loves it. He says it's a family heirloom of sorts, his name is Henry. Shawn says he got it from Zack's room. Mimi thinks that must have been hard for him. Shawn says it was, but Zack, his dad and his mom, that family is dead to him. Bo walks in at this point and asks Shawn if he means that? Mimi welcomes "dad" to their apartment, and she says it feels good calling someone that, she hasn't done it in a long time. Bo says he likes the way it sounds too. Shawn thinks Bo just likes hearing someone call him dad. Bo asks why Henry is here, and Mimi and Shawn explain they are trying to get pregnant through IVF. Bo talks to Shawn about his feelings about their family. Shawn becomes upset with his dad, saying his dad let a stranger in and kill Zack. Bo says that stranger is his daughter, and it was an accident. Shawn just doesn't understand how he can open up and accept someone he doesn't know over his own family. Shawn tells his dad that he made his choice, that is his family now. Mimi tries to calm things down a bit, and Shawn asks his dad why he even came here. Bo says it's about Patrick, he wanted to talk to Mimi. He asks Mimi if Patrick ever spoke of an Alma Delgato. Mimi says yes, he loved her but she died. Bo says she was murdered and they don't know who or how. Mimi says her brother may have done a lot of bad things, but he is no murderer. Mimi says Patrick loved Alma, he would never have killed her.

At the hospital, Lexie is about to call Carrie when Sami stops her. They argue over what lexie's about to do, Sami tells her that she'll throw away her husband, her family and her job if she does this. Lexie can't believe Carrie actually thinks Sami has changed, she's as bad as ever. Tek walks in at this point and says and they've had enough of her. Lexie and Tek begin arguing with Sami, Tek even calls her a terrorist! Sami warns them both of the mistake they'll be making if they tell the truth. She says Lexie will lose everything, and Tek will lose his job because Abe will fire him. Tek says he can always go back to the ISA, but Sami says she doesn't think so. She says John is ISA, and John is best friends with Abe. She says John is dealing with a man stealing his wife, he doesn't think he'll be too sympathetic with Tek stealing Abe's wife. Sami orders Lexie to make sure Carrie stays with Austin and has his babies.

At Sami's place, Austin and Lucas are still arguing over Carrie, and they want her to choose. Lucas tells Carrie to tell Austin that they are engaged and will be married. Austin reminds Carrie of what they've shared and can share again. Carrie has some classic Austin and Carrie flashbacks. Carrie is waiting for Lexie's call, and Lexie finally calls. Carrie excuses herself and steps out into the hall. Lexie tells Carrie that she reran the tests and she's sorry, if she was ever with Austin then it would be a disaster. Carrie is in tears and understands. Carrie returns to the boys, she's made her choice. She tells Austin that she's sorry, but what they had was in the past. She says her future is with Lucas now.

Back at the hospital, Sami tells Lexie she made the right choice, now they can all live happily ever after. Lexie tells Sami that she may have Austin now, but she won't be able to keep him as Austin will always love Carrie.


May 10, 2006

Chelsea shows up at Maxs garage to see him, she just came from Frankies. Chelsea asks Max for a favor. He says this is so typical of her, she treats him like crap and then the minute she needs something its like nothing happened. Max asks her what she wants. She wants him to be a character witness for her at the trial. She says hes a good person and sincere and maybe if he tells the judge what a good person she is then hell . . . Shawn, who was working on a car, comes out from under it and says What, let you walk? Chelsea says she didnt know he was here. Shawn says just because Max is a race car driver she thinks theyll let her out of jail? Does she think she even should even try to get out? Max tells Shawn to take it easy. Shawn says Chelsea needs a reality check, nobody can help her now and she needs to face the consequences of what she did. Mimi shows up as Chelsea is rushing out in tears. Max goes after Chelsea, and Mimi tells Shawn that perhaps it is time he gave Chelsea a break. Shawn says hes not going to make nice with Chelsea, she is the reason his family doesnt exist. He says he knows it was an accident, but it was her fault and she is the most selfish person he knows. Shawn says she may be his sister but he hates her. Mimi says she understands, but Chelsea loved Zack and has to live with this for the rest of her life. Shawn says they all do. Shawn says he doesnt want to talk about this, and he asks how her day is going. Mimi says fine, she has an appointment with the doctor later. Mimi says she wanted to see if he wanted to have lunch at Buddies. Shawn says that would be good, but hes working more to get more money for them so he's put in for more hours. Mimi says shes doing the same thing at the spa and is going to see if she can work weekends at the Java Caf. Shawn says they can always use the trust fund, but Mimi says its for the baby. Shawn says what about the money Gran gave them. Mimi says she wants to save it for emergencies, she wants to get by on their own and set this example for their kids. Shawn agrees. Mimi asks what is wrong with this car hes working on. Hes not sure, hes checked a lot out. Mimi sees the vacuum hose has come loose, that is his problem. Shawn asks how she knows so much about cars? Mimi says Patrick taught her in case some guy tried to convince her that his car broke down somewhere. She talks about how she cant believe his dad thinks Patrick was involved in Almas death. Mimi says he loved her and she wants him to find that kind of love again. Shawn says he hopes Patrick can find it too. Mimi says that is so nice. Shawn says he wants what she wants. Mimi wants Patrick to be as happy as they are. Shawn starts the car up and it runs. Mimi notices that the oil cap is loose too, so when Shawn tries to fix it they both get squirted with oil. This makes them giggle and laugh.

Max talks with Chelsea. He tells her that shell get through this and theyll deal with the outcome of this trial. He says shes not alone, she has him. She says but he was just mad at her two seconds ago. He says hes not going anywhere and neither is she. He wants her to stop hanging out at clubs and getting drunk with guys. He tells her that her image is at stake as is her freedom, stop running wild when she gets bored and scared. Chelsea gives Max a hug. She says shes so lucky to have her believing in him, hes like her guardian angle. They kiss. Chelsea thanks him again and says she owes him. He doesnt want her to forget what they talked about. Chelsea decides to head home, but she says shes feeling better and that things may work out. Chelsea then leaves. 

At Samis, Austin apologizes to Lucas and Carrie for putting them both through this. Carrie says she didnt mean to get his hopes up, but what they had is in the past. At this point Sami comes home and hears Austin saying hes sorry for pressuring her, all this time he read her all wrong. Carrie tells Austin that shes sorry. Carrie says she loves Lucas, and they kiss. Lucas and Carrie then leave, running into Sami on the way out. Austin sulks, so Sami offers to make him something to eat. He says no thanks, he needs to get back to work. She shows him the notes from her meeting with the marketing firm and some of her ideas for re-launching high style. She asks him what he thinks. He is impressed and says its well mapped out. He says hell green light this, and hes so lucky to have her on his team. He says he has a new assignment for her. Sami says she doesnt need one, shes working on something for herself. He asks what it is? She says shes decided its time for her to move on with her life without him. Austin asks what shes saying? Sami says its more like what he said. She says he thought Carrie was going to leave Lucas to be with him. Austin says he did. Sami says he said he given Carrie's answer that didnt know if he wanted to be with her (Sami), and she cant put herself through that loss again. Sami says she loves him and probably always will, but she cant spend her life trying to make a relationship work with a man who doesnt love her. Austin says he was honest with her, and Sami says shes being honest with him too. Austin says he just got these vibes from Carrie, it was like she was hiding something or waiting to hear something before making her final decision. Austin says its like Carrie didnt choose Lucas, she was afraid of being with him. Austin asks Sami if she knows what is going on. Sami lies and says she has no idea why she made this decision. Sami says all she knows is Carrie has given up on him, but he hasnt given up on her. Sami says she sympathizes. Austin says Carrie has moved on. Sami says she has to move on too. She talks about how she has always thought she needed a man to be happy, and shes tired of being a pathetic loser when it comes to love and relationships. She says shes going to change her life starting today. She says this relationship is not healthy and she has to get out of his life and he has to get out of hers. Austin says stop it, but Sami says this is important to her. She says she has to become more realistic, and this relationship is not real. She says they shouldnt be living together and he should move out. Austin is stunned. Austin starts telling Sami how wonderful she really is and how much he really does care about her and always has. He asks if she cant see that? Sami asks if he says he cares about her more than a friend. He says he loves her, but Sami thinks hes just saying it because he feels sorry for her. Austin says he isnt. He says he does have feelings for Carrie though. Sami says then they are back where they started. She says he needs to take time and move on and get over Carrie. Austin says he knows and that will take time. He says Carrie is his past and he hopes Sami will be in his future. He says he wont rush into anything with her, if they are to get closer then theyll do it the right way. Sami says she loves him and will do anything for him. Austin says then theyll take it nice and slow.

Carrie and Lucas return to their place. Lucas asks Carrie if she is okay? She says shes not. Lucas says he knows she feels bad about hurting Austin, he does too as Austin is his brother. Lucas says Austin loves her and wants to fight for her, he cant blame Austin for that. Lucas says hes just glad shes marrying him. Carrie says she never wanted to hurt either of them. Lucas says she was backed into a corner and given no choice. Lucas tells Carrie that she needs to cheer up and he knows just what will help. Lucas gives her a package, she opens it and its a bunch of travel brochures. He tells her to choose where she wants to go on her honeymoon. She sees he has private jets, five star hotels, this will cost a fortune. Lucas says his mom is paying for it all. Carrie says she has always wanted to go to Venice. He says then Venice it is. They end up having hot panting sex with one another. Later they lay on the couch and tell one another how happy they make each other. 

At the station, John is on the phone with Alex. He warns Alex that if he hurts Marlena then hell spend the rest of his life hunting him down. Alex says its getting late and he has to go, ta-ta! Alex hangs up on John. Bo returns to the station, Bo asks John if he found anything new out. John says Alex just called and basically told him that hes going to kill Marlena. John says hes at the end of his rope, nobody knows where Marlena is so he cant save her. John plays a tape recording of the conversation for Bo (he just now decided to tape Alex?). Bo says Alex didnt say he was going to kill her, but John says he implied it. Caroline shows up to see Bo, she brought him some food. She tells John to help himself. Bo knows she is here for something other than lunch. Caroline says she wanted him to know that shes talked to Hope. John excuses himself to call in help from the ISA. Caroline cant believe what Bo and John are going through with the women they love. Bo asks Caroline about talking to Hope, don't leave him hanging. Caroline says she tried to reach out to her but she wouldnt listen. Bo realizes she got her number from Jen or Frankie, though Caroline says she cant say. Caroline says she cant let him know where Hope is and she can't give him her number, she promised. Caroline then pretends to drop her purse, only to drop Hopes cell phone number for Bo to find. He thanks her, and she says if hes not going to eat this food then shell put it in the fridge. 

On Morgan Island, Marlena sees Hope and Patrick on the next terrace. Hope is shocked to see Marlena. She asks Marlena if shes okay? Alex walks out and says of course she is. They all think its a very small world. Hope asks what they are doing here. Alex asks what are they doing here and where is Bo? He says he didnt know she ran off with Patrick. Hope says it wasnt planned, she ran into Patrick here. She says she left Bo and is starting over. Alex and Marlena says they just renewed their vows and are here on their honeymoon. Hope says she hopes they enjoy their stay. Hope asks Marlena a favor, dont tell anyone in Salem where she is, she doesnt want anyone, especially Bo, to know where she is. 

Later Hope and Marlena have some girl talk alone. Marlena never expected to see Hope with Patrick. Hope says things just sort of happen. Hope tells Marlena that shes filed for divorce from Bo, and she needs to move on. Marlena asks if she is sure that is what she wants? Hope says it is. Hope asks Marlena about her and Alex, shes been so worried about her. Marlena insists she is just fine. Hope asks if she still has amnesia, and Marlena says she does. Hope says something is bothering her, she doesnt seem like the Marlena she knows. She says something about her and Alex isnt right. Marlena says shes very happy. Hope asks about the wedding. Marlena tells her about the wedding and how John almost killed Alex. Hope says John would only do this if he thought she was in danger, so she must go back to Salem and John. Marlena feels everyone is trying to push John on her, something is very wrong with him. Hope says hes trying to protect her, John is decent and loving. Hopes phone rings and she says she has to go get that.

Meanwhile Patrick and Alex chit chat. Patrick says he got the message he has a job for him. Patrick says hes not in that line of work anymore, but Alex says of course he is. Alex tells Patrick they both need each other now. Alex says he needs a man with Lockharts skills on his team. Any man who can steal Hope away from Bo, well he wants him on his side. Alex says if Patrick wants to stay in Hopes life then hell need his help. Alex says hell need a lot more than a handsome mug and a hard body to keep Hope interested. Patrick says if hes suggesting he doesnt have intelligence or social skills, well he and Hope have no trouble communicating. Alex says no hes talking about his bank account, he and Hope like the good life and will need money. Patrick doesnt think so, Hope isnt high maintenance. Alex says all women are, and hes making him a proposition. Alex says he has plans that require an ally to put them in motion. Patrick asks what the plans are? Alex says they arent kosher, but hell fill Patrick in in good time. He offers Patrick a small advance for the time being. He opens up a suitcase full of money. He gives Patrick some of the bills and says hell be in touch. 

Patrick and Hope return to the room at the same time, Hope sees Patrick holding the wad of cash. She asks if he just won that, and Patrick says he did. Hopes phone is ringing and she asks Patrick to answer, it must be Jen. Patrick answers the phone, its Bo. Bo asks what hes doing with his wife?



May 11, 2006
At the garage, Mimi has cleaned herself up to go to the doctors for her hormone shot. She looks around for Shawn, who is in the back of the garage. Hes on the phone with Belle. He tells her to let herself in, hell be there as soon as Mimi leaves for the doctors. Belle says Phillip is at the park with Claire, so shes all his for the afternoon. Shawn says that second bedroom is calling to them, and hes so happy this is happening. He tells Belle not to do anything to make Mimi suspicious though. Belle is so happy they can do this, shes so glad that shes still special to him. Shawn says of course shes special to him, but they cant let Mimi know what is going on. He says hell see her soon. Mimi walks out from where she was hiding. She asks Shawn if he wants to go to the hospital with her, but he says hes swamped with work here. He also tells her to take the afternoon for herself, go get a pedicure at the spa or something. Bonnie shows up to meet with Mimi and go to the hospital with her. Bonnie can see something is upsetting Mimi. Mimi tells her mom that Shawn is cheating on her with Belle, they are making plans to meet and get it on in the loft. Mimi asks how she could have married a man who was in love with someone else. Bonnie is furious and says she could kill Belle, shes obviously taking advice from Sami. Bonnie remembers overhearing Sami telling Belle to go after Shawn. Bonnie fumes and says Belle always gets everything she wants, a hot hubby and cute baby. Mimi says its Shawns baby and theyll always have that bond whether they know it or not. Mimi says she has to face it, Belle and Shawn belong together. Bonnie says Shawn married her, he loves her.
