PREVIEW: Shawn breaks Belle's heart; Brady and Tony are in critical condition. SUMMARY: In Belle's room, she impatiently waits for Shawn. She calls and leaves a message for him. She tells him that she is still waiting for him. Rex waits with Belle and tries to assure her that Shawn will be here because he loves her. Not wanting to cause any trouble, Rex goes to leave but Belle convinces him to stay. Belle admits that she fears Shawn and Cassie are together, but Rex doesn't think so. He tells her of their visit with Marlena earlier and how Cassie was so upset that she rushed off. He says he believes Cassie has some kind of need inside and needs to fill it. Belle thinks her need is Shawn. Belle wonders how he took the news from her mom and he assures her that he is okay. He assures her that Shawn will show up and goes to leave. She thanks him and tells him that he will find that someone special for himself someday. With a smile, he leaves. Belle continues to pace the floor and worry about Shawn. She looks out the window and says she fears that Shawn is going to break his promise... Meanwhile, still outside Tuscany, Shawn and Cassie are discussing what happened the night of the murder. He admits that he fought with Colin killed him. Cassie questions him further as he explains in detail, (we see in the details in flashbacks). He was looking for his mother and saw Colin looking through the window, muttering about killing Bo. Shawn jumped him and they struggle for the gun. Shawn grabs it and demands to know why he is after his dad. They argue and Colin says that Bo should not be aloud to live. What makes him so special? Shawn tries to force him inside to tell Bo everything. Colin refused and didn't think Shawn would shoot him because "mommy and daddy wouldn't approve". Colin continues at Shawn and called him a coward. Suddenly, there is a noise in the bushes that startles both of them, Colin turns around and Shawn fires the gun, hitting him in the back. Back to reality - Cassie tries to justify it all to Shawn, but he calls himself a murderer. She tries to convince him that he isn't a bad person and that he was doing it to protect his family. Shawn realizes that she saw it all and then we see the shooting from her point of view in the bushes. Cassie flashbacks - It was HER that made the noise that frightened them, by stepping on some branches. Back to reality - She promises to keep his secret and never tell. But he wants to confess and says he intended to, but because of his mother's condition and then his grandfather having a heart attack, he didn't. He says he must go to the police and confess and walks off, but Cassie stops him. He goes onto tell her that there is one thing he doesn't understand…he was sure that they would find the gun with his fingerprints all over it, because he dropped it, right there on the terrace. But it seems to have disappeared. He says they will find it eventually and he must go and tell his family and Belle, as he can't lie to her again. But Cassie won't let him, telling him that he can't involve Belle. She says that Belle will try and protect him and put herself in danger in the process. She convinces him that she knows everything and can talk to her and not to put Belle at risk of going to jail... Just then, Rex shows up asking what is going on. He is not happy to find Shawn with Cassie. He reminds Shawn that Belle is waiting for him and is worried about him. Shawn says he knows but just stands there. Rex wonders why he doesn't go to Belle? Cassie tries to stop him, but he knows he has to go and he leaves. Once Shawn is gone, Rex snaps at Cassie for trying to break up Shawn and Belle. Rex tells her to stop trying to take Shawn away from Belle because he belongs with her. Cassie says not anymore he doesn't! She tries to leave, but Rex demands to know what she is up to. She says that Shawn needs her. Rex still wants to know what is going on. He says he hates seeing her clinging to people like Marlena and Shawn who can't give her what she needs. Cassie says what she and Shawn have is more than just love, they are destined to be together - and she has known that since she first saw him at Lookout Point. She refuses to abandon Shawn when he needs her now more than Belle and flounces off… Back in Belle's room, she puts on her coat just as Shawn comes in. She hugs him tight, telling him she was worried. He takes her hand as she asks what is wrong. She asks if something is wrong with his grandfather or mother? He says the problem is with him…he is what is wrong. He tries to leave, but she wants to know what he is talking about. He promises that he loves her but more than she knows, but he can't involve her. She gets upset, thinking he doesn't trust her. He asks her to trust him, but she says he can't talk about trust when he can't trust her. She then realizes that it has to do with Colin's murder because that is when his behavior changed, but Shawn covers and tells her that his family having such a rough time and doesn't want to dump it all on her. She pleads with him to tell her, but he tells her that he is letting her go. He says that he is going to give her space as he sorts this out. She says, "you're breaking up with me…" and he says "yes". He then has several flashbacks of shooting Colin. Belle is crying and Shawn tries to go to her, but he just can't bring himself to touch her. They just stand there… We see a replay of Tony waiting for Brady on the street and the car speeding right at Brady. Tony dives at Brady to move him out of the way, but they are both struck by the car. Chloe rushes over as both Tony and Brady lie motionless. Brady is unconscious and Tony lay awake, but doesn't move. John rushes up and says he saw the whole thing happen. He says the driver didn't even try to slow down, almost as though they running him down on purpose. He covers Brady with his coat and calls 911. He tells the operator that he doesn't know who hit them, but gives them the license plate number. Chloe is crying and holding Brady's hand and John finally turns and asks Tony if he is hurt and Tony says he can't move. John tells him that he saw the whole thing happen and he saw him save his son. He then turns back to Brady. Just as he does this, Tony says he can't feel his legs. The sirens of ambulances are heard in the background. Once at the hospital, Craig tells Chloe and John that Brady is okay and only has a mild concussion. Chloe wants to see him and they walk in. John comforts Chloe and tells her that Brady needs her. He wakes up and asks where he is and they explain what happened. In the other room, Craig and a technician check Tony's x-rays and inform him that he has a spinal cord injury and needs surgery. Craig explains that it is a complicated surgery and that there are no guarantees that it will be successful and may still be paralyzed from the waist down… At the Brady House, Hope tries to call Abe but Bo takes the phone from her. She is sure that she killed Colin, but Bo says he will go to his grave proving her wrong. She says she doesn't want to be saved this time and that Bo is in denial. But he refuses to believe it. She is sure that she did it and is blocking it out but Bo says there is no proof and for her to forget it. She says she wants to do the right thing and is afraid that if she did kill Colin that she fears what she may do to someone else. Suddenly, Abe knocks on the door. Bo tells Hope not to mention Colin. Bo answers the door, and Abe tells Bo that they have to talk about the investigation. (See a guilty look from Hope.) Bo suggests Hope go and check on Zack, which she does. Abe tells Bo that Carson Palmer is giving them grief about not nailing the killer, and having him and Roman kicked off the case because he feels like the Brady's are protecting one of their own. There is a crash and we see that Hope was on the stairs and dropped a glass. Bo and Abe see Hope on the steps, and Bo tells Hope not to worry about Carson's suspicions because no one in this family killed Colin. Abe then gets a call and has to leave… Back at the hospital, John has explained everything to Brady and wants to know why Brady was meeting with Tony. Brady explains about the file he downloaded from the server and imagines he would be pretty angry about that. But then they don't understand why Tony saved him. Abe shows up and John explains what happened. Meanwhile, Tony is being told that his spine has been injured, and he will need surgery to restore the use of his legs. Tony asks when they will do the surgery? Craig tells him that there is a lot to consider, and there is a possibility that he may not walk again even with surgery. Tony is devastated by the news that he could be paralyzed from the waist down for the rest of his life. Craig leaves and Bart shows up to explain what happened. Bart says he doesn't know what went wrong. Tony tells Bart that no one was supposed to get hurt, he was supposed to save Brady and come out look like a hero, they would back off, and he would be able to go after Marlena. Tony says if his condition is permanent he and his inept driver will suffer, and John and Brady will pay the highest price of all! Tony decides he will go through the surgery. John comes in to see Tony and ask why he did what he did? Tony says because he is his brother and Brady is his nephew. Tony says he is as protective of his family as John is… In the other room, Craig convinces Chloe to go home. She hesitates but leaves, but not before Brady can whisper that he loves her (and see Craig grinning from ear to ear after hearing that) and Chloe responds and takes off. Once alone, Brady asks Craig about Tony's condition… Back at the Brady house, once Abe had left, Hope panics and is sure that they will find out that she did it. She is sure that because of the letter, the DA will come after Bo and it will lead to her. Bo vows to prove she didn't do it by finding the bastard that did. He says he is going to find Murphy's killer and put them away for life…freeze frame and fade...moreless
