have more faith in the family and walks off. Lexi is confused about why Abe
and Jenn have been so passive. It suddenly occurs to her that her brother
might not be wrong. Abe gets sarcastic and makes her feel bad before
flat-out lying. She swallows that and tells him how great he is before
running off to pick up their son. Abe tells Jenn that was the first lie he

envelope yet. Kate wishes she could cheer him up. He says her love is
enough. They sit at the chessboard and he tells her what he had on Hope.

the Horton house, Bo and Hope continue to mull over what must be in the
envelope. She still can't make up her mind to open it. She plays with her
jewelry and prays for a sign. Suddenly she notices a book of her grandpa's
and opens it. A homily falls out and she takes that as a sign. After she
leaps up and down in tears, she decides to open it. Twenty minutes later,
she actually does. "Oh my God no!" she gasps as she reads the paper inside.
and Rafe are in their office congratulating themselves for saving a marriage
today. They hug and then begin smooching. Sami walks in, coughs and nearly
hyperventilates. Before she can leap on them, Rafe says it's not what she
thinks. "Why? Were you playing princess again?" she asks. Carrie says they
were just excited and it was only one kiss. Sami expected this from her
sister and accuses her of always stealing everything from her. She can't
believe that Rafe would betray her and starts screeching at her sister
again. Carrie wishes she could take back what happened. "Carrie is a slut
and you are a traitor!" Sami barks at Rafe. The sisters start fighting and
Rafe keeps apologizing. Austin walks in. "You and Rafe were kissing?" he
asks his wife. Carrie leaps between the men and insists it just happened.

and it will never happen again. He's not sure she can keep that promise. "Do
you have feelings for Rafe?" he asks. Meanwhile, Sami and Rafe return to the
loft. She doesn't think she can put what just happened behind them. He
points out that it was just one mistake and they can deal with it. "I
can't!" she yelps, smashing their wedding photo and kicking him out.

to cook her dinner. He admits that he's worried about how busy he is going to be
over the next few months. Over in the office, Carrie can't deny to Austin that
she has feelings for Rafe. She claims she just made a mistake. He thinks it's
more. "You broke my heart," he says, storming out. She calls Marlena to tell her
she just did something stupid. Marlena decides to come over and help. When the
shrink gets there, Carrie fills her in on how right things felt with Rafe. She
opens up about her fights with Austin. Marlena thinks it might be good for them

over. Bo looks at the paper and goes into denial. He assumes this is a DiMera
trick. "It says the man I'm really married to is John," she points out. He
points out that it could only have happened when she was brainwashed as Gina.
She doesn't remember much about that and John's brain isn't exactly reliable
either. Looking at the paper, she wants to track down the witness but Bo refuses
to accept this is real. Hope assures him that what they have cannot be broken,
but their marriage is illegal and they have to tell John. They head to the
penthouse. John is alone. He wonders why they look so serious. The cops tell him
the tale of the two envelopes and show him the wedding certificate. He squints

be there for him. "You were here for me?" he asks. Abby confesses that she's
been fantasizing about this for a long time. "I drank a lot," he says, but

while she got undressed, but fails to correct his impression that something
more happened. When she tells him he has nothing to feel sorry for, he looks

was a mistake. Her cleavage heaves and she runs off to class. Later, she

coming home. They compare who screwed up more. He starts begging for
forgiveness but she thinks that she's the one who needs to be forgiven. They
promise to keep it real and hug. She explains that she and Rafe won't be

anything and they can just lie to a judge. Marlena knows that wouldn't work. The
