Roman is at the pub with the other Bradys. They are waiting for news on Kayla and Steve. Unfortunately all the experimental drugs arent viable, and one guy wont be reachable for four days. Caroline says Steve and Kayla are running out of time.
Outside the pub, Lexie tells Abe that she cant go in there. Abe says the Bradys are their friends and they need their support. Lexie thinks they dont want her there, not after what she did to Carrie. Abe says she can either run or face the consequences of what she did. Abe asks if they are going in or not? Lexie says she wants to tell them how sorry she is, but she doesnt know if she can take the look on their faces. He tells her that she has to start making amends for what she did and that begins with the Bradys. He promises to be there to support her. She agrees to go in.
Back inside, Bo and John are talking about EJ and Patrick and what they are up to. Bo says he knew something was going on with Sami and that envelope at the time, something she wasnt telling him. Bo decides to go ask Sami about that note. Roman hears this and asks what did Sami do now? John says easy, Sami isnt in trouble. Bo says not yet at least. Roman joins them, John and Bo begin to fill Roman in on their investigation on EJ and Patrick. Roman offers to talk to Sami, but Bo thinks if Sami is hiding something then she wont tell him. Roman says Bo is suspended though. Bo says Abe gave him the okay to work with John on this.
Abe and Lexie walk in, everyone gives her dirty looks. Roman tells Abe this isnt a good time. Abe says he knows, they wanted to offer their help with Steve and Kayla. Roman thinks there isnt much they can do, especially Lexie. Abe says Lexie has read a recent study on biotoxins. Roman doesnt want to hear it, but Frankie and Caroline do. Roman thinks the doctors must know of this study. Lexie says it was an obscure medical journal actually. She says she knows they dont trust her and may never be able to again. Caroline says they have all made mistakes and she can forgive Lexie, she and Abe are always welcomed here. Caroline also says Sami played a major role in what happened to Lexie. Roman admits that is true and what is important now is Steve and Kayla. Roman asks Lexie for help if she knows anything. Lexie explains about an article on an experimental drug for biotoxins. Frankie offers to check it out with Lexie, they head to Frankie's PC to look on the internet.
John tells Bo that he should probably deal with Sami on his own, Sami doesnt really like him. Bo takes off, John also takes off and tells Roman to let him know if he can be of help with Steve and Kayla. Meanwhile Lexie finds the article which could be a chance for Kayla and Steve. She gives them the number of the person to call, they all thank her for giving them this hope. Lexie is thrilled that she seems to have earned back some of the Bradys trust, she and Abe hug. Abe tells Lexie how proud he is and how hell always stand by her as long as she doesnt give him a reason not to. She says she never will, she loves him so much.
Roman, Frankie and Caroline go to the doctor at the hospital with the study. Hes impressed, it could work but it could also be fatal. He asks if they are really willing to take this chance? Roman says they could die anyways, they all agree that the risk is worth it. They ask the doctor to give them the drug. The doctor needs to have the papers drawn up. While he does that he says hell have the CDC deliver the drug.
At Samis, Sami tells EJ that he cant ask her to choose between Lucas and Will and him. She says its an impossible decision. She says she never thought theyd forgive her. EJ says they cut her out of their lives, they bring nothing but grief into her life. EJ says she drops everything for them every time they walk back into her life. HE says hes the one person who has never let her down. She says shes sorry. EJ says so is he and he cant be there for her anymore. EJ goes to leave, Lucas tells him its best he hit the road as this doesnt concern him. Sami begs EJ not to take this personally, it is about her son. She asks him to understand. She says being a good mother is the most important thing in the world to her. Will asks if that is true? She says he has to ask? Will says he does. Lucas says they thought theyd find her crying her eyes out and not celebrating with EJ. EJ, who hasnt gone, says Sami was very upset and he was trying to calm her down all day. Sami tells EJ that its okay and he should go. EJ tells her that they will let her down and when they do, dont come crying to him. EJ leaves, Sami thanks Lucas and Will as EJ probably wont talk to her again. Lucas says its probably a good thing. Sami yells at them that EJ is a good person and likes her for who she is. Lucas says lots of men like her and he knows why, it's not usually for who she is. Will tells them to stop, Lucas promised not to argue anymore. Sami asks what Lucas promised? Lucas says he told Sami but she was distracted by EJ and didn't hear him. Sami says she heard him, she just didnt believe it. She says he wants to be a family? Lucas says he wants them to act like a family. He thinks they should call a truce, to be friends for Wills sake. Lucas says just friends if that is okay with Sami. Sami says of course shes willing to try. She says she wants Will to be happy. She says she is willing to do whatever it takes. Will and Lucas agree to do the same. Sami asks if this means they are moving back in? Will says not right now, hes going to stay with dad and Grandma Kate. She says okay. Lucas says they need to take things slowly and see what happens. Sami asks if this was a test? Did she set him up? If she doesnt pass will theyll walk out on her again? Lucas says its up to will. Will says that she claims shes changed, he wants to believe it. Sami says she as changed and she will prove it to him. She says shell prove it to them both. At this point Bo shows up to see Sami and talk about EJ. She asks if this can wait, but he says no. He says its a police matter, he either talks to her here or at the station. Will says here we go again. Will and Lucas end up leaving, Sami thanks Bo for ruining their attempt to work things out. Sami asks what this is about? Bo says its about EJ Wells. Sami asks what EJ has to do with police business. He questions her about the envelope she found and had dusted for prints, EJs were on them. Sami says he was here when she got it, it doesnt mean he did anything wrong. He wants to know what was in the letter. She asks why it matters. He says Steve and Kayla have been poisoned, someone is targeting their family and it has to stop. Sami says it isnt EJ, he couldnt! She asks why nobody told her about Steve and Kayla, then again it doesnt surprise her. Bo says it shouldnt given what she did to Carrie. Bo asks again what was in that envelope. Sami says EJ is a good friend, why does he suspect him? He says he doesnt trust EJ and if Sami is smart then she shouldnt trust him either. Bo ends up leaving.
EJ shows up at Kates place to see her. She asks what hes doing here? EJ has a status report for her. He says Sami has chosen Lucas and Will. Kate tried to call and warn him that they were on the way over. EJ says he is giving up on trying to come between them and Sami. EJ says hes really had enough. Kate asks what that means? EJ says it means hes off the case. He says shell have to deal with Sami and Lucas. Kate tries to keep him around as insurance as he does seem to have a thing for Sami. EJ says hes getting over that, hes used to getting what he wants. He kisses her neck, she says shes starting to realize that. Kate offers to do something to help convince him to keep playing along. They end up kissing and going at it. As Kate is busy taking off EJs clothes, Lucas and Will show up and bang on the door. Lucas tells his mom to open the door. He opens it but the chain is on. He asks what is going on, let them in. EJ hides and somehow escapes. Kate eventually lets Lucas and Will in. She claims the chain was just a habit, she's used to living alone. She asks what is with them, she can tell by the looks on their faces things didnt go well with Sami. She thinks they shouldnt go back again. Will says shes wrong and mom might need them more than ever now. Kate begs Lucas not to fall into Samis trap. She says Sami is like alcohol, unless he gives her up completely then shell destroy his life.

Claire is inside crying. Belle is trying to get Claire to settle down. Shawn
rings the doorbell when Belle doesnt answer. She finally answers, he says
he wants to help with Claire. Belle says hes the last person either one
of them needs and she slams the door in his face! Shawn refuses to leave, he
bangs on the door and says hes not leaving. She opens the door and tells
him to go away, its late and she just got Claire down. Shawn says he
wants to see Claire, but she says no. He says he has rights, he is her
father. She says a father with no job, no place to live, has wrecked a car
and a boat and is now dating a hooker. He says that is what really upsets
her, that hes dating Willow and not running back to her. He thinks
shes punishing him by keeping him from Claire. Belle says shes not
punishing him and shes not going to let him wake up Claire at this hour
just because he suddenly wants to play daddy. Claire begins crying, Belle
thanks him so very much. He says he can get her back to sleep, but she says
he is going no where near her. She says hes made it clear that he
doesnt give a damn about her or Claire. He says he only walked away to do
what was best for her, Phillip and Claire. He says now that Phillip is gone,
things are different. She says he is different, he is not someone she wants
around Claire. Shawn says he wont keep her from Claire. He says he
didnt go for joint custody to do what was best for them, but if he needs
to get a lawyer to see Claire then he will. He also threatens to sue for
full custody if she pushes him too far. Later John shows up, he asks why
Belle looks so upset. She tells him about the fight she had with Claire.
John understands Belles reasons, but he points out that Shawn is Claire's
father. He also doubts Shawn would really sue for full custody and he
wouldnt get very far with such a law suit. Belle tells her dad how she
still thinks she and Claire need their own place, a real home for Claire.
John thinks what Claire needs is her father. John suggests Belle give Shawn
some ground rules, he needs a job and a place to live in order to be
involved with Claire. Belle says Shawn will hate that. John says she needs
to make this about Claire and what is best for him. He says this is about
them being good parents to their daughter. Belle says for Claires sake
shell give it one more try.

Billie is shocked, but as it turns out Chelsea only wants her to go to support Bo. Once again the two argue. Billie warns Chelsea if she keeps pushing this then she'll only push Bo out of her life.

She says she wants him to be a good father to Claire, and she knows he hasn't had a chance to be and that's why he doesn't know how to be one.

Bo thinks he can help Shawn out, Shawn can stay with him until he gets off his feet. Shawn thinks that will only make him look like more of a loser to Belle. Bo asks if this is about impressing Belle or taking care of Claire?
Back at Billie's, Billie is stunned when Hope shows up to see her. Hope lets Billie know that she should be at the hospital for Steve. Billie doesn't think anyone wants her there.

She says they arent thrilled that Kayla is sick, she needs Steve and Steve is thinking of her (Billie). They sit down and talk. Billie doesnt want to get involved with another married man ,especially another Brady. She doesnt know what it is with her and the Bradys. She hurt Hope and she doesnt want to hurt Kayla. She promised to get out of the way if Steve remembered, and she doesnt want to stand in the way of Kaylas recovery. Billie says Steve has become important to her. Billie thinks Marlena must think shes horrible. Marlena doesnt, she says Billie has every right to go after what makes her happy. Marlena says she cant help but who she falls in love with. Billie says even if Steve and Kayla are a family. Marlena says but Steve and Kayla havent been a family for years. She also tells Billie as a psychiatrist that the chance of Steve regaining his memory is slim. She reminds Billie of the man shes married to, his past is a blank. Marlena says he could have had a wife and family, they may never know. She says she loves him with her whole heart though. Billie says that is different, Steve has Kayla. Marlena says Kayla is strong and has lived most of her life without Steve. Marlena says if Kayla recovers then she will accept what Steve feels. She tells Billie that if she finds love then hold onto it. Marlena says shes learned sometimes you have to let go of the past to have a future.

At Maxs garage, Max is talking to Mimi. She wants Max to give Shawn his job back, it would save Max a lot of time. She promises to stay out of Shawns way, she can even do a lot of the book work at home. He asks why she cares, is this her way of getting Shawn back into her life? She knows they wont ever get back together, but she feels responsible for what Shawn is going through. She says if he wont give Shawn his job back then she will quit. She says she cant undo the mistakes she made, but she can do the right thing from now on. She asks him to give Shawn a break.
Shawn arrives at the Lockhart house. He tells Patrick he has a delivery for him. Patrick opens up the envelope and sees it is from EJ. EJ tells him in the note how Shawn is now their new form of communication, he will be paid 500 dollars per message. EJ says hes already paid him for this, but Patrick should pay him again just to keep him around. Patrick wonders what is going with Shawn, suspicious he's been set up by Bo. Shawn claims EJ gave him a job. Patrick says he owes him some money, but Shawn says hes been paid already. Patrick says he knows. Patrick opens up a huge lock box full of money and pays Shawn. A spying Mimi, who is at the door, sees this. Patrick says this is a bonus to keep him motivated. Shawn heads out and Mimi confronts him outside. She asks what is going on with him and her brother? He says its a job and walks off. Mimi then goes in to see her brother. Shes moved back into the house. He says he didnt expect to see her back from work so soon. She says she came home to get something to eat. She asks him about the wad of cash she just handed Shawn. She says hes unemployed, where did he get all that money. He says he cashed in stocks.
