PREVIEW: Sami hides the truth from Brandon -- and he rejects her ultimatum; Belle helps Cassie & Rex move back to school. SUMMARY: At Brandon's loft, Sami and Brandon are cuddled up on the couch. She tells Brandon that she is not going to hold a grudge about him and Lexie sleeping together. He is happy to hear this, but tells her he wants to forget it. Sami explains that she can't forget and wonders why it happened in the first place. Brandon says they were just two friends trying to comfort each other, and he tells her that he never loved Lexie. He also tells her that he's sorry he didn't tell her earlier because he values honesty so much. He tells Sami this is it - no more secrets from now on. They hug and agree. Later, they toast each another, and they kiss. Sami then remembers changing the paternity test results and starts to feels guilty. She tells Brandon that she hates this feeling - that she is so jealous of Lexie. Brandon assures her that nothing will come between the two of them now. Sami thinks the way he just said that was cold and unconvincing. She apologizes and says that she has never had self-confidence and she has never been the girl who looks so great that she doesn't have to worry about someone taking her boyfriend. She also says she doesn't have a good job or even a degree. She wants Brandon to promise to never see Lexie again, for her sake. Brandon refuses, and says that the two of them are friends. Sami quickly comes back and says that after they slept together, she doesn't see how they can actually go back to being just friends. Brandon tells her that he is sick of spending so much time talking about Lexie. Sami says he has to cut her out of his life. She tells him that if he loves her, he will do this for her. He asks her why she is doing this? Sami tells him that Lexie is still stringing him on, and says that he will not let Lexie and Abe be together. Sami explains that when her mother left her dad for another man that it totally screwed up her life. Brandon says Abe will betray Lexie just like he has done in the past. Sami then tells him that if that happens, Lexie will come running back to him. And we're back to he has to choose between her and Lexie. Brandon refuses to choose, and she snaps that he just did! She tells Brandon that if he doesn't push Lexie out of his life for good, she is leaving and not coming back. Brandon tells her that he can't do that. She heads to the door and Brandon just stands there. She stops and turns and looks at him and says that she can't believe he would just let her leave. He tells her it's her choice. Sami tells him that if he leaves the door open to Lexie, she will eventually come back to him. She says he's going to have to make a choice. Brandon tells her that he won't be forced to make choices like this… At the DiMera mansion, Belle comes over to help Cassie and Rex pack to go back to school. She is intercepted by Tony, who wants to talk with her, as he just wants to take time to get to know his niece. She quickly snaps back that she says she is not a DiMera. Tony tells Belle that he has something to show her, a very special picture. She tells him she is not interested but he takes out a picture of his mother, her grandmother. Belle says she is beautiful, and that she didn't have a drop of DiMera blood in her - but he does. Belle tells him that she agrees with his father, he is not part of their family. Tony tells her that John is wrong, and he hopes she will come to accept him. He then offers her a gift. She tells him that she cannot accept it, but he tells her that it belonged to her grandmother, and she would want her to have it. Belle agrees to take it, only because it belonged to her grandmother. It is a brooch and she pins it on her sweater and comments on how beautiful it is. She thanks him for it. Meanwhile, the twins are in the foyer and wonder why Tony and Belle are speaking. They listen in, and Cassie is angry that Belle gets everything she wants, first Shawn and now Tony. Cassie and Rex go in, and Cassie admires Belle's brooch. When Belle explains that it was her grandmother's, Cassie asks how John will react to her wearing it? Meanwhile, at the Hartley House, Brady and Chloe are carrying boxes in, as they are helping Belle move back to the dorm. Brady is very upset because Belle is nowhere around. Caprice comes in and tells Brady that Marlena told her about John and Tony being brothers. Chloe says that maybe Tony is different, but Brady snaps back that he is just as dangerous as Stefano ever was. Chloe tells him that he needs to let Belle decide what type of relationship she has with Tony, but Brady says she will have no relationship with Tony! Caprice agrees with Chloe, she says that Belle is a big girl and they need to let her make her own choices… At the Black Penthouse, Marlena is outside on the balcony and she has more flashbacks of being in a white room, singing "Rock a-bye-baby" and in real time begins to cry. John comes over and asks her what is wrong? She comes inside and says it is Tony, what if he's right? Marlena says that he needs to accept that he is Tony's brother, and it could be a positive step towards ending this feud. She then begins to talk about the legacy of hatred and violence and wants it to stop - she doesn't want this war to move into their children's generation. John tells her that he believes that Tony has ulterior motives and wants to take her away. Marlena tries to convince him that isn't the case, but he fears for her and his children. They have a long talk and he eventually tells her that she's right, but he doesn't want to talk about it anymore. They plan to have dinner together, and then Marlena leaves. Marlena steps into the hallway and makes a (mysterious) phone call and asks them to meet with her, she needs to talk. Back inside, John gets a phone call and says, "SHE'S WHERE?" and he takes off… Belle finally arrives at the Hartley House a little later, with the twins. Brady is upset when he finds out she was at the mansion. Tony comes in behind them and Brady quickly warns Tony to stay away from his sisters. (Note: Belle has taken the pin off at this point). Cassie starts inquiring about the missing pin just as John shows up. John tells Brady he will take it from here. Brady is angry as he sees Tony pull Belle aside. Brady wonders how his father can let him just talk to Belle. John tells him nothing will happen to her in front of everyone. Tony hands Belle the brooch back, but it's in a box so John or Brady didn't see it. John does finally approach Tony and he tells him to stay away from his family and his wife. Belle tells John that she was only helping Cassie and Rex move. John tells Brady that he doesn't want the war passed onto his children, and so it will end right now with him. As Tony walks out he is furious with John and calls him a hypocrite as he remembers John telling him to say away from his wife… It was Kate that Marlena called and they have met at Tuscany for coffee. Kate is feeling lonely because most of her family is gone, Billie in Paris, Austin in New York and Philip in Basic Training, she only has Lucas and Will left. However, she says Will is having some major attitude problems and has been downright cold and rude. Marlena says she has seen this change in Will also, and she thinks that Will is trying to assert himself. Kate says that Lucas is trying to be the "cool dad" to Will, and that he is convinced that Will is perfect as is and anything negative in Will is Sami's fault. Marlena and Kate realize that this is not good, so they talk about trying to get Will to a child psychologist. Kate says Lucas would never agree to that, but Marlena says she will try to work on Sami and she should try to work on Lucas. The two agree that is what's best. Kate then realizes that Marlena called her there and wonders what is upsetting her? Marlena tells her that she seems to be wallowing in feelings of guilt and regret. She tells Kate that she is in so much pain that she can't even tell John about it. She tells her about Tony and about Stefano holding her captive on the island. She also mentions remembering the lullaby and talks about how when she was held captive, she felt that she wasn't there for Eric and Sami and how Sami suffered because of it. She then goes on about John and Tony being brother and now John has become obsessed with Tony's every move. Kate tells her that she is not to blame, they have both been victims of men who pretended to love them. Marlena feels guilty for talking about the time she lost with her children when Kate lost time as well. Kate tells her it is okay. Marlena gets paged and has to leave. After Marlena leaves, Kate says the only difference is Marlena only lost time, but she lost SO MUCH more…fade…moreless
