At the sorority house, Stephanie finds Chelsea waiting around for Nick to
talk to him. Stephanie asks what is going on? Chelsea says she knows what she's
doing. Stephanie says they said they wouldn't tell. Chelsea says Nick knows
something is going on, Nick will protect them. The doorbell rings, Max and Nick
show up. Chelsea wasn't expecting Max, she said this was a private party.
Stephanie tells Max that she could use a little company if he doesn't mind
hanging out with her.
Max and Stephanie hang out, Max sees she's jittery. He says talk to him, tell
him anything. She begins talking about her classes. Stephanie says they can't
pretend their lives are normal. Max says something has been wrong for awhile
now. He says even before Ford's accident she's been different. Stephanie doesn't
know where to start. He says tell me what is wrong. She says it started when he
was dating Morgan, she hated it. Max says he noticed. She says she took off one
night and went to a party to find someone new. Max asks if she found someone
else? She nods. Max asks if he knows him? Stephanie says it was Ford. Stephanie
says she thought she could take care of herself. Max asks what happened? Max
says he won't judge her, what happened? Stephanie says he drugged her, she tried
to fight back, but couldn't. She says she felt like she was drowning, everything
was in slow motion. Stephanie says all she could do is lie there as he raped
her. She says she wanted Ford to feel like she had, but he didn't deserve to
die. Stephanie says Max could go to jail for this, but he says he can take care
of himself. He says Ford hurt her and still is. He thinks she hasn't had a good
night sleep, so he wants her to sleep now. He says he will stay here tonight
with her. He sits in a chair by the bed. As she sleeps, Max is crying.
Chelsea and Nick are alone talking. Chelsea says they promised not to keep
anymore secrets. He asks if she's dumping him? She says no. He says then they
can handle this. Chelsea says she has to tell him what happened when Ford
disappeared. Chelsea tells Nick that Ford didn't show up that night drunk,
they invited him over. She says they wanted to confront him, they spiked his
drink with the same drug he used. She says but Ford came prepared and drugged
her. She says he was going to rape her, but when he figured out what they were
doing, he came after her. She says the drug they gave him kicked in, he
lost his balance and fell down the steps. She says the seconds felt like hours.
Nick asks what happened after Ford woke up? Chelsea says he didn't, he was dead.
Nick asks if the others were here? Chelsea says yes, they all kept it a secret.
Nick asks what they did with the body? She says they buried it, but later moved
it. She says Max moved it somewhere. Nick thinks they should have called 911,
they should tell the truth even now. He says Ford's parents are on the news
every night begging for information on him. He says Ford's mother looks like
death herself. She says they didn't mean to kill him, but Nick says they did.
Nick says a man is dead, he can't be a part of this. Nick then walks out!
In the cell, Carmine is saying EJ needs to stay out of his daddy's business.
Meanwhile Sami shows up at the jail to see Lucas, but the officer says visiting
hours are over. They hear a commotion, EJ and Lucas are attacking Carmine in the
cell. The guard and Sami run to see what is going on. Carmine is hauled off,
Sami asks how that monster got in his cell? Lucas says ask EJ, his old man sent
him and he knew it. EJ says he saved his life. Lucas says yeah other way around.
Lucas thinks it's convenient that he became the hero and this is just a play for
Sami. EJ says this isn't a stunt, and if his idea of courage is shooting a man
in the back and lying about it, then he's a braver man then him. EJ is let out
of the cell.
Sami and Lucas talk. Sami says she talked to Will, she can't believe Lucas
told him what he did. Lucas says he didn't tell him, he figured it out. Lucas
says he can't lie anymore. Sami says it's late for that. Lucas says he told Will
if things got bad he would confess. Sami asks how he'll explain it to the twins,
in their weekly visits to the state penn? Lucas says he will not fail Will or
the twins. Sami says he already has. Sami says they can't fix this. Lucas says
he didn't put their kids in this feud, she did. Sami says if she was with EJ she
could have still been there for them. Lucas says she'd be no freer than he is
now. Sami says they'll never find out now.
At the pub, Shawn is dressed up to start the academy. Hope has a camera and
is recording this. She tells him to give Claire a message for the memory box. Bo
and Shawn then leave to grab a donut. Meanwhile, Crystal is waiting around to
meet Marlena. She makes a call saying they need to pick up. Hope continues
filming Shawn, who has returned. Bo gives Shawn a gift, it's a St. Michael
medal, he's the patron saint of cops. Bo says grandma got him and Roman one when
they joined up. Shawn thanks them and says he never would have gotten this far
if it weren't for them. Shawn gives them hugs before leaving. Hope tells Shawn
that she's sorry she didn't tell him about Belle, she just wanted to make things
perfect for him. He says it's a new year and heads out.
Bo and Hope sit around and talk about Shawn, how he'll make a great cop. Bo
says he will be a great cop. Hope wants him to find a woman who will fight for
him. Bo says maybe he already has, it ain't over till it's over. Bo asks if
Shawn can forgive her, can Hope? Hope says she would be their biggest supporter.
Bo goes to get a beer. She hears Crystal on the phone talking about how Marlena
didn't show up so she has to go. Hope confronts her, she knows her, she's
Crystal isn't she. Hope asks why she told her that John's alive. Crystal says
give Marlena a message, she's in danger.
Belle is at the station with Claire. Phillip shows up, Belle called him. She
says her mom went to meet that woman, she and Roman are going to go find her.
Belle asks Phillip to watch Claire. She says Shawn has orientation today, she
needs to find her mom. Belle then heads off. Phillip says this feels like old
times, maybe they can help mommy remember what she's missing. Chloe soon shows
up, she asks why they are meeting here? Phillip says the only other choice was
Marlena's, he didn't think she wanted to run into her. Phillip tells Chloe that
she must have heard about Shawn and Belle by now. He says this doesn't change
their arrangement. He is afraid Shawn might forgive Belle, he wants Chloe to
give him a reason not to take her back.
In the alley, Marlena has a gun on a mystery man, who is approaching her with
a knife. Her phone is ringing, she becomes frightened and gets in her car. The
man only clears her windshield. Roman shows up with Belle, the man runs away.
Marlena tells them both that she's okay. Marlena says this strange thing
happened. She says a man with a ski mask showed up, he had a knife. However he
didn't hurt her, he helped her by fixing her car wipers. Marlena says she's late
to meet Crystal. Roman says he'll give her a ride.
Later Stefano and Rolf are in the alley. Rolf says he was here, the man
should be in a passive state from the drugs. Stefano says he's reckless, he
needs a servent who will do his bidding. Stefano says if this man is useless to
him, what good is Rolf to him? Rolf says certain factors are beyond his control,
he's a person not a machine. Suddenly the guest grabs Rolf from behind and
chokes him! Stefano orders the man to let Rolf go, which he does.
Back at the pub, after Crystal leaves, Hope talks with Bo about Crystal and
her message. Bo then gets a call from Abe. Abe tells Bo about the incident in
Lucas' cell, Stefano sent a hitman it seems. Abe says believe it or not, EJ was
there and saved Lucas. Bo says he's on his way there. Bo relays the message to
Hope about Lucas. Bo leaves and Roman, Belle and Marlena show up. They learn
about Lucas' attack. Roman plans to head to the station and Marlena insists she
go too. She says she won't be the victim any longer.
At the station, Marlena talks with Lucas. Lucas says he saved EJ in there,
for the record. He says Sami was there, but she thinks this whole thing was his
fault. Meanwhile EJ tells Bo that he had himself thrown in jail to save Lucas,
but he has no proof that Stefano arranged it. He says he's done a lot to hurt
his family and he's sorry, but he's drawn a line with his father. Sami says she
is afraid for Lucas. Bo says they are trying to cut a deal and have Lucas
released. EJ can't believe this, they are letting him go? Bo says they are
trying to keep him alive, and if Stefano sends someone after Lucas again,
they'll send someone after him. EJ tells Sami this is just great. He says does
she have any idea how betrayed Stefano is going to feel about what he's done
today? Marlena walks in and knows how Stefano feels.
Belle shows up and talks to Sami. Sami says mom is talking to EJ, she wasn't
going to argue with her. Sami tells Belle that at least Shawn isn't in jail to
help her with Claire. Belle says Lucas is a great father too, and he loves her.
Sami just doesn't know how Lucas could keep this from her. She says after
years of him lecturing her about honesty and secrets, how is she supposed to
forgive him for this? Roman walks out and says why not, he's forgiven her so
many times. He remembers their wedding and how Lucas stood by her. Sami says
that was different. Roman says why, because she says so? Roman says cut Lucas a
break. Roman tells them to go across the street to the diner, catch up and talk.
Roman says if anything happens they'll be in touch.
Roman, Abe and Bo talk, the DA is on her way for a meeting. he DA finally
shows up to meet with them. Roman thanks her for coming down. Bo wants to pleade
down the charges against Lucas. They explain how Lucas was under extreme stress,
they talk about how EJ was after his wife, he shot Sami's step father, he was in
a organ theft heist. They of course don't have proof of any of this. The DA says
it's still illegal to run around trying to kill people, no matter what others do
to you. They say Lucas is in danger, Stefano sent a hit man after him tonight,
but EJ saved him. However EJ won't testify against his father, so they still
have no proof it was a DiMera hit. The DA says a private cell, tighter security
and minimum visitors. Bo says Lucas is a good guy. She says save their character
witnesses for court, Lucas will need all the help he can get. She is betting
Lucas will be in jail for a long time. The DA says Kate and Marlena are already
on the street because of deals they worked out. She says she's getting heat,
people are saying the Bradys are using this department to protect their family.
She says sorry, no deal with Lucas. She then leaves.
Marlena has a talk with EJ, she wonders if he's here to impress Sami? EJ says
he's not carrying on Stefano's legacy, he won't let his son be afraid of him the
way he is of Stefano. Marlena says prove it, give Roman something that will help
them put Stefano away for good.
Belle and Sami return from the diner with some food for their mom, but she
says she's not hungry. She says EJ tried to persuade her that he was a new man,
but she believes Lucas is a good man and good father. Marlena says Lucas loves
her, he put himself at risk to keep her from being a DiMera. Marlena says Lucas
is a member of their family and they will do all they can to help him. Marlena
and the girls then confront Roman, Bo and Abe. They want to know what they are
going to do to keep her family safe.
Back at the pub, Shawn returns from orientation. Chloe is waiting there for
him. She says there is something about a guy in uniform. Chloe says he came by
to give him a message from Phillip, Belle had to leave Claire with him and he
can pick her up from Marlena's.
Outside, Crystal is on the phone. She says people are getting suspicious,
they are running out of time. She says they'll have to take Belle and Claire by
January 8, 2008
In Roman's office, Marlena confronts Roman, Abe and Bo as Sami and Belle
stand by her. She demands to know what they will do about Stefano, when they
will arrest him. Roman says they have some leads. Marlena wants more than leads.
She says John is dead, Brady is missing, someone tried to kidnap Belle and
Claire. She demands Stefano be brought in, if they won't do it then she will.
Abe says she doesn't mean she's going to become a vigilante. She says she would
like to do it their way, but they aren't getting results. She says they don't
get the depth of her grief over John. She's afraid every time the phone rings
it's the call saying someone else she loves is gone. They tell her they are
doing everything they can right now and urge her to go home and get some rest.
Belle and Sami say they are right and she should go home, so she leaves.
Abe tells Roman and Bo that Marlena is right, Stefano should have been taken
down years ago. Abe fears if they don't take him down, Marlena might take
him out, or vice versa. Roman says they've all made careers trying to bust
him, and they do have some promising leads. Abe tells them to stick on them.
Roman and Bo search for leads on Crystal and come up with nothing. Roman gets an
idea and looks into her shop. He finds the shop is owned by a DiMera, but not
Stefano. He says they have a new player. Bo reads the deed, it's for CB DiMera.
He wonders who that is?
At Marlena's, Shawn and Chloe arrive to get Claire. Shawn confronts Phillip,
saying he may have taken Belle, but he won't take his daughter. He says this is
the last time he'll see her like this, he hope he enjoyed it. As Shawn goes to
get her things, Phillip tells Chloe to hang out with Shawn and badmouth him. He
wants Shawn to see her as an ally. He also wants Belle to see how Shawn blew up,
thinking it will make her see who she needs. Chloe says she doesn't know
him anymore, calling him the bad guy here. He throws Brady in her face, but she
won't talk about Brady with him.
Later Marlena and Belle show up. Belle learns from Phillip that Shawn picked
up Claire for the night, he wasn't happy that she left her with him. Belle says
she thought he would appreciate that she didn't bother him during orientation.
Phillip says he was pretty angry. Marlena says he should have been, what was
Belle thinking? Phillip quickly leaves as Marlena lectures Belle, saying instead
of calling Maggie or Hope to baby-sit she once again went to Phillip! Belle
doesn't know why she did. Later the two end up having ice cream and movie night.
Belle tells her mom how she really scared her the was she was talking today.
Marlena says Stefano is a threat to their family and she won't stop until he's
been dealt with.
At the pub, Shawn puts Claire down to bed. He then has a beer with Chloe. She
tells him he's such a great dad. Shawn asks her about Brady. Chloe says it's
hard, and she misses Brady so much. He says so she's not going to get back with
Phillip? She says no, he was right, Phillip has changed. Shawn is glad she sees.
Chloe invites him to the Cheatin' Heart to shoot some pool. He accepts and they
leave laughing about which one will win.
Back at the station, Kate meets with Billie. She asks Billie to convince
Lucas to see her. Billie doesn't think her mom should push. Kate explains Lucas
is in danger, telling her about the attempt on his life and how EJ saved him.
Billie says she'll see what she can do. She goes in to see Lucas, but he still
won't allow Kate to see him. Billie continues to tell her mom to just give him
time. Later Kate calls Phillip to the station. She wants Lucas out, but Phillip
says he hasn't been given bail. Kate thinks they should break him out. Phillip
can't do that, all he can do is post a guard for him. He is sure that Lucas will
At the mansion, EJ arrives to see his father, but Rolf says he's busy and EJ
must leave. EJ hears noises and Stefano yelling for Rolf. EJ guesses their house
guest? He wonders what they are doing to this man. Rolf can't tell him and asks
him to go. EJ leaves, but later breaks in and sneaks down to the lab. There he
finds the patient on a table hooked up to machines. He rips off the tarp over
him and sees it is John! Stefano walks in saying he is his best soldier. EJ
can't believe this, how is this possible? He says what is he doing to this poor
man? Stefano asks what has happened to his son? This isn't him. EJ won't be a
part of this, he's done enough to John. Stefano says this is what John was bread
for. EJ goes to make a call, but Stefano stops him. He warns him if he turns on
him, all EJ has wanted will be gone. EJ says if he doesn't he'll lose Samantha
for sure. Stefano says do him a favor, if he plans to turn on him, give him fair
warning. EJ leaves.
Later Stefano gives John a file, saying this is his mission, study it. He
says he must find this woman, the woman who can keep secrets. He says she can
destroy everything his father worked for. He says when they find where she is,
he must be ready. He says this is his destiny!
At Sami's, Sami is on phone with Eric when EJ shows up. She sees he's upset.
EJ says he stood up to his father, he's afraid. He says he's realized his father
is a psychopath. Sami says hello, he's just now figuring this out? EJ is truly
worried, Stefano may come after her or Johnny. She says then do something, turn
him in. EJ says then what, they live their life in fear or retaliation? She says
she lives that way now. He says he may have something, it's big, but as of yet
he's not sure what his father is planning.

Reminder! I'm on vacation for the rest of this week and next week. The
rest of this week my summaries will not be up until late in the evenings,
possibly the next day. For now I'm using the official NBC recap. This will be
updated as soon as I'm able to see the show.
update: I've added some addition comments of my own
after seeing the show to add a few further details. I literally have 3 more
hours of soaps to do, so these aren't as detailed as my usual summaries
Belle dreads having to pick up Claire from Hope. She and Marlena
have a talk about this at Marlena's new townhouse. Belle thinks Hope hates her,
but Marlena says Hope is just looking out for Shawn, who is her son. After Belle
leaves, Marlena puts a gun in her purse and leaves.
At the pub, Hope and Kayla talk. Kayla tells Hope about how
Steve and her have appointments with fertility specialists to get checked out.
She's worried that Steve is only doing this for her, that he might not want
another kid. Hope says she should just ask him. Meanwhile Roman and Bo bring
Steve up to speed on CB DiMera owning Crystal's shop. They tried to get a
warrant to search it, but the judge said they had no probable cause. Steve
offers to do some unofficial reconnaissance. Kayla stops him and reminds him
they have an appointment, so he can't. Bo and Roman head out and Kayla asks
Steve if he wants this baby, or is doing it for her. He says he does want to
make her happy, but he also wants this baby.
Later Belle arrives at the pub, Hope is cold at first, but the
two reach an understanding about where Belle stands with Shawn and her marriage.
Belle wants to make it work and Hope says she supports this. After Belle leaves,
Hope confesses to Kayla that she's not sure if she wants Belle and Shawn to get
Stefano is stunned when Marlena shows up at the mansion and aims a gun at him.
She sees Rolf and makes a comment that she thought he was dead. She tells him to
stay back or she'll shoot stefano. She asks Stefano about Crystal and if he sent
her to torment her, but Stefano says the only psychic he knows is Celeste. She
demands to know where Brady is. Stefano insists he has no idea, but Marlena
doesn't believe him. John, who is under Stefano's control, eavesdrops. He
remembers Marlena's voice, he was the man who helped her with her wipers.
Marlena fires off six shots as a warning to Stefano. She vows that next time,
she'll kill him. She storms off, leaving Stefano stunned… and in awe.
Later, Stefano tells John that he must memorize the file, he
must be ready when he's needed. He asks John why he's not focused? John says he
wants to go out! Stefano says he cannot, and tells him that he is a wanted
fugitive and if he is seen he will be arrested.
Bo and Roman go to Crystal's building and find Rob, who claims to be renovating
the place. They ask him about the DiMera who owns the building. He denies
knowing the owner, C.B. DiMera, only saying the name DiMera sounds familiar,
hasn't it been in the news? Roman and Bo ask to look around, but Rob won't let
them in without a warrant. Bo decides to stake out the place, hoping Crystal
will come back. He invites Hope along with him.

January 10, 2008
Again I'm on vacation, so am a bit behind (I'm still making my way
through Wednesday's show). This is the official NBC summary until I can see
Thursday's show and add my own. Because of my schedule this week, I may not be
completely caught up with all the episodes until Saturday.
update: I've added some addition comments of my own after seeing
the show to add a few further details. I literally have 3 more hours of soaps to
do, so these aren't as detailed as my usual summaries obviously.
Marlena is home looking at some old photos of John when Roman shows up to
check on her. He knows she misses him. Marlena keeps thinking about what Crystal
said to her. Roman tries to talk Marlena out of her belief that John might still
be alive. He says John is gone and he would want her to move on with life.
Later, Marlena summons Nick to her place and asks him for help. She
lets him know that she's having some issues with John's death and needs to be
sure he's dead. She had John exhumed and cremated to keep the DiMeras from using
his death or his body in some way against her, to play tricks. She wants Nick to
run tests to see if they are John. Nick says it's difficult to do DNA on ashes,
but he can at least start with a test to see if they are human.
Roman returns as Nick leaves with John's urn. He wonders what is going on,
why did Nick leave with an urn. Marlena finally confesses what is going on to
Roman. He tells her Crystal is toying with her, and he feels they should go get
some answers about this once and for all.
Disguised as homeless people, Bo and Hope stake out Crystal's store, hoping to
find out more about the mysterious psychic. They see Rob enter the building and
Hope takes cell phone photos of him to see if they can find information on who
he is. Later Crystal arrives. Bo confronts her and says they need to question
her. She thinks she's done nothing wrong, but Hope says she said Marlena was in
danger, that can be taken as a threat.
Bo and Hope take Crystal to the station to question her. They want to know
why she's telling Marlena she's in danger, along with Brady and Belle. Crystal
says she's a psychic. Bo says her store is owned by CB DiMera, but she says she
just leased it through an agent. She says unless they are arresting her, she's
leaving. Roman shows up with Marlena, who begs Crystal for answers. She wants to
know if John is alive.
At the mansion, Stefano tries to get John to understand his mission but his
"soldier" just wants to be freed. Stefano says he explained why he
can't go out there. John is suspicious, wondering if anyone here knows him, what
Stefano is afraid of. Stefano is afraid of nothing. Later Stefano questions Rolf
about John. Rolf says he could give him more drugs, but then he wouldn't
understand his mission. Rolf suspects John is restless because he's looking for
something… or someone. Stefano says he thought Rolf assured him there would be
no memories. Stefano says he is his soldier!
Kate and Philip visit Lucas in jail and try to convince him to plead not
guilty by reason of temporary insanity. They want Sami to testify in court that
what she put him through caused him to snap and shoot EJ in the back. Lucas
resists and doesn't want to do this. Kate encourages him to write Sami a letter,
explaining that he needs her to testify on his behalf to help him come across
sympathetic in court.
At Sami's, EJ and Sami have a talk. She's having issues with contacting Will
still and tells EJ her troubles. Later Kate arrives to see Sami. EJ leaves
and finds movers taking his furniture away, by order of his father. EJ had
everything put in Stefano's name when Mythic was in trouble, it was to protect
his assets. He has to deal with this and leaves. Kate meanwhile talks to Sami,
saying Lucas needs her, she is the only one who can help him now. They trade
jabs, and Kate comments about how she has really become Mrs. DiMera. She gives
him a letter from Lucas and leaves. Sami reads it and cries. Lucas tells her he
is sorry for what he did, and knows he ruined things. He says he is still her
partner and to trust him here. He says together they can get through this, he
can be back with her, but he needs her help. He asks her to talk to Phillip.
EJ goes back to the mansion and confronts Stefano, who calmly reminds
him that EJ put everything he owns in his father's name to protect his assets.
EJ demands his father return everything to him. Stefano in turn threatens to
take everything from him. EJ asks everything or everyone? Stefano says both.
EJ threatens to reveal the identity of Stefano and Rolf's "guest" if
Stefano doesn't return all his stuff.
Sami meets with Phillip and Lucas's attorney, Cameron Reese. They
explain they want Lucas to plead temporary insanity, and for Sami to testify
that her actions pushed Lucas to this. She says so she is supposed to be the
scapegoat? She says she's worked so hard to show people she has changed, but
they want her to admit to being the same old Sami, the one that destroys peoples
lives? She says no, they can go to hell and so can Lucas!
January 11 , 2007
Once again I'm using the official summaries while I'm away. I'm making my
way through Wednesday-Friday's episodes tonight and am doing my best to update
the summaries further.
update: I've added some addition comments of my own after seeing
the show to add a few further details. I had 3 hours of soaps to do, so these
aren't as detailed as my usual summaries obviously.
At the jail, Sami tells Philip she won't take testify that she's the one who
drove Lucas insane. Phillip thinks Sami doesn't love him at all, but she says
she does. She says this is Lucas' life on the line here. She has been to court,
she's been on the stand, the lawyers will twist her words. She admits Lucas
didn't trust her to handle EJ and went off and did this, the lawyers could get
that out and it would be over for Lucas. She tells Phillip that he'll just have
to find another way to help him. She storms off.
At the mansion , EJ continues to tell Stefano he wants his money, cars
and of course furniture back. He says otherwise he'll tell the Brady Boys about
who he has in the lab. Stefano says if he walks out the door, he won't come
back, but he'll always be his son. EJ says and he'll always be his father, but
he won't control him ever again. Stefano says they have an understanding then,
he'll return his things . . . . but never threaten him again.
Back at Sami's apartment, Sami won't talk about Lucas with EJ. He tells Sami
that he stood up to Stefano and is worried, he would like Sami to stand by him.
She tells EJ she understands what he's going through, but he has to understand
what Stefano has done to her and her family for years. EJ says he does. She says
she doesn't trust him, but she will fight Stefano with him.
At the station, Marlena begs Crystal to tell her if John is alive. Crystal says
she hasn't seen him, but heard things. She says John is alive, Stefano has him.
Crystal's lawyer mysteriously appears out of no where and won't let her say
another word and takes her off. Marlena wants a search warrant, but Roman says
they can't get one on this. He still thinks John is dead. Marlena sees they
think she's losing it. Nick soon shows up, he has the results on the ashes and
she won't like it. He doesn't know what they are, but they aren't John as they
are three years old. Marlens feels this is more proof. Roman still isn't
convinced, but Hope begins to believe.
Marlena, Bo and Hope arrive at Sami's place where EJ is. Marlena has news,
John is alive and Stefano has him. Sami says they have to do something. Marlena
says Roman is working on a search warrant, but she was hoping EJ could help
them. He says he can't, sorry. Marlena says he wants to prove he is not like
Stefano, that he's changed, so help them. Sami says if EJ says he can't then
they should believe him. EJ says you shouldn't, Marlena is right, John is alive.
Shawn, Claire and Chloe are at the pub having cake to celebrate Shawn's first
day as a cadet. Shawn leaves Claire with Chloe while he changes, which is
when Belle shows up and is furious. She thinks Shawn is doing this as payback.
She doesn't trust Chloe and accuses Chloe of being involved with her
brother's disappearance. She's shocked when Chloe reveals Philip arranged for
her legal counsel and bail, he believed in her. Shawn is a bit shocked too.
Later ,Belle finds Phillip and wonders what games he's playing with her. She
confronts him about helping Chloe. He admits he did, he believes she had nothing
to do with Brady going missing. Belle says he should have told her, after
everything they've been through . . . She says she can't trust him, and that
without trust they have nothing.
Back at the pub, Shawn questions Chloe about receiving Philip's help,
wondering why she turned to him. She says she didn't want to, but he had
the money and power to help her. He asks her about Brady and her suspicious
behavior. She says the people who took Brady threatened her, she was afraid what
they might do to her as well. Shawn says he believes her. They play darts and
