Episode Summary

EDIT
Ep. #7960
AIRED:
Vivian is outraged to discover Kate has moved her office at Titan to a sub-basement, and that Kate is calling a board meeting to have Vivian ousted from Titan altogether. Kate calls Vivian a "loser" and they almost come to blows, but Ivan steps in between them. Vivian threatens to find out what Sami has on Kate and to expose her, but Kate feels secure in knowing that Sami is in a coma. Vivian and Ivan go to Sami's hospital room and try to use music to awaken her, but Kate and Mike Horton catch them and throw them out. Kate is alarmed to notice Sami's hand moving on her blanket. Outside the room, Kate tries to convince Vivian that Sami has nothing on her, but Vivian doesn't believe her and promises to expose Kate as soon as possible. Kate tells Vivian Sami will never wake up before the board meeting, but just then, Ivan reports that Sami is regaining consciousness.

Carrie dreams that Sami has regained consciousness and is more determined to hold on to Austin than ever. When she awakens, Austin reassures her that no matter what, nothing will stand in the way of finalizing the annulment. Austin calls Mickey to make sure Sami cannot stand in the way of his marriage to Carrie once she wakes up, and Mickey is reassuring. Carrie and Austin go to the hospital to discover that Sami is opening her eyes and regaining consciousness. Mike warns them that Sami may say or do unusual things when she wakes up. Austin and Carrie stand at Sami's bedside as Sami opens her eyes.

Marlena's suspicions are aroused when she hears Kristen tell John she doesn't know the baby's sex. Marlena, who heard the baby was a boy from the nurse, points out that the doctor and nurse told Kristen what sex the baby was and challenges Kristen to tell John. Kristen is completely clueless because Susan, who had been disguised as Kristen during the false labor incident, never told Kristen that she knew the baby's sex. Just then, gifts Marlena ordered for the baby are delivered early, and their blue wrapping clues Kristen in on the baby's gender. John is overjoyed to learn he is having a son, but Kristen, shaken by her close call, claims she is upset that Marlena spoiled her surprise by revealing the baby's sex to John. Kristen, saying she is going out for some air, goes to Susan's house. Kristen is furious with Susan for forgetting to tell her about knowing the baby's sex, and makes Susan write down details for the labor and delivery. She tells Susan to go to a private hospital where she is not known, and not to call John and Marlena until the baby is delivered and Kristen has taken Susan's place. Kristen frets that she and Susan are not the same blood type, but Susan reminds her that since Dr. Robbins has only taken blood from Susan, it won't be a problem. When Kristen leaves, Susan shows signs of instability. She talks to herself and sings to a baby doll, calling it her little girl.

Kristen returns home and apologizes to Marlena for overreacting when Marlena spoiled her surprise, and they all go to the hospital to check on Sami. On the way up, they run into Dr. Robbins, who asks how Kristen is feeling. John points out that Kristen did not want to know the baby's sex in advance. Dr. Robbins is flabbergasted, since Susan, disguised as Kristen in the labor room, seemed very eager to know the baby's sex. Kristen explains it away as waffling, but Marlena is suspicious. Dr. Robbins then remembers that he never took Kristen's blood while she was at the hospital the previous day, and asks her to go to the lab to have blood drawn. Kristen panics, remembering that Susan's blood type is on record as hers, and the doctor will certainly notice the difference. Kristen claims she is too queasy to have blood drawn, but Dr. Robbins and John insist, while Marlena looks on with increasing suspicion.moreless
