PREVIEW: Hope and Shawn both decide to confess to Colin's murder; John prepares to return to DiMera island. SUMMARY: At the hospital, Cassie is resting after giving blood, and Rex gives her some juice. Shawn comes in, and Cassie sends Rex out for breakfast and some magazines. Shawn tells Cassie that Belle is gone and that's good because he wants to talk to her. Shawn takes this opportunity to tell Cassie he can no longer keep the secret, and cannot ask her to either. He is going to tell. Cassie tells him it's her decision, and that she wants to keep the secret. Shawn tells her that too many people get hurt, and secrets have a way of coming out anyway. He goes to leave, and Cassie is agitated and jumps up to stop him, and faints in his arms. Shawn helps her back into bed and she says that she just got up too quickly. Shawn explains how the Salem P.D. all think that Tony is responsible for Colin's murder, and Cassie protests that Tony says he's always blamed for everything, and he's always found innocent and since he was out of the country, it's not possible. He says he can't keep hurting people the way he has, like Belle. Cassie asks if he broke up with Belle? Shawn says he tried but she won't let him unless he can tell her that he doesn't love her. Cassie doesn't look pleased by this, but still tells him that he cannot confess. Shawn says he is going to go confess, and abruptly leaves. Rex returns, and he stops Cassie from getting up to stop Shawn. He says she needs to get better, and he wants to know what has her so freaked. Cassie says nothing, and that everything is going right. She says not only are they DiMera's, but they can both have what they want, Belle and Shawn. Cassie happily tells him that Shawn and Belle broke up, that she has Shawn, and he can go for Belle. Rex says that won't happen, because they would be cousins if Tony turns out to be their dad. He then says he did some research and any number of people in the world could have the blood markers she does… Meanwhile, in other areas of the hospital, Sami overhears Lexie ask Brenda to pull up her blood work on the computer, as she wants to check to see if she has her brother's marker. Sami gets worried, and wonders if something will show that will indicate the results of the paternity test were tampered with. Sami snaps at Brenda that the computer not be touched as she was working on something. Brenda assures Sami that she saved her work, and will get Lexie's info in a minute. Brandon comes up, telling Lexie he is sorry about her brother and wishing luck, as he knows Tony is in surgery now. Sami sees this and tries to put a stop to it quickly as she tries to pull him off to the side to "tell him something….privately". Making a long story short, Sami and Lexie are going at it - insults are flying, and Sami almost lets it slip that she knows her and Brandon slept together, but Brandon stops her and Sami covers. Brandon then tells Sami he wants to talk to her NOW, and Sami is all "finally" and they go out to the balcony. Brandon lays into her, letting her know he is very angry. Sami tries to shush him, but he is too angry. They argue and he tells her to stop obsessing over his friendship with Lexie. She hurries up and apologizes, don't me mad at me, I'll do better, etc. etc. etc. They agree that they will be OK now that there are no more secrets between them. They hug and Sami thinks "just one more secret, one you can never know" and Brandon thinks the same as Sami can never know why he feels so protective of Lexie's baby... At the Brady house, Bo comes downstairs searching all over the house, calling Hope's name, but she is no where to be found. We see her outside in her car, deciding she can't do this anymore, and that she must go to the police station to confess to Colin's murder. She is just getting ready to drive away when Bo gets in the other side. He wonders what she is doing and she tells him that she's going to see Abe and Roman. He refuses to believe she is guilty, and somehow gets her to go back inside. Bo says he can't let her confess alone, but Hope tells him that if he is with her, then Abe will know he tried to cover it up. He then tells her that before she confesses to anything, they have to be absolutely clear. Hope says she would have done anything to stop Colin that night. Still, Bo feels that she didn't do it. Bo says he believes that the killer is someone that they haven't even considered yet. he thinks the killer is someone who would let someone like her or Jack take the rap for this. Bo asks Hope not to do anything until she has all the pieces of that night back and in place. Then they hear Zack crying and Bo sends Hope to take care of him. A few minutes later, Shawn comes in, looking distraught and wanting to talk to his father, but wonders why he's not at the station. They begin to talk about how Shawn couldn't find his mom that night, and he was worried because of how upset she was. Bo says, yes, she thought she saw Larry and was freaked. Just then, Hope comes down stairs, and insists to know what Bo is doing. She says she thought they weren't going to talk about this? Shawn asks, "not talk about what?" Bo explains that Shawn already knows about her Larry visions. Shawn heads upstairs to see Zack… Upstairs, Shawn talks with Zack and apologizes for letting him down. He tells him he did something wrong, he has to make it right, and he may have to go away for some time, so they will not see each other for a while. He explains about being scared, about not wanting to hurt Grandpa and Mom, tells him how sorry he is, and is more or less saying goodbye. He turns to leave, but breaks down crying at the door… Shawn goes back downstairs and when pressed for what he wanted to tell them, he tells them about the tension between him and Belle. They wonder if Belle is OK after Brady's accident. When Shawn tells them he doesn't know, they start asking more questions. He then tells them they are giving each other space. Hope tells him that she doesn't want their family problems to come between them. Hope thinks there is more, but Shawn says he can't talk about this anymore and runs out of the house… Once outside, Shawn tells himself that he can't confess with his mom there, he can't let her know that her son is a murderer. Back inside, Hope is glad that Shawn doesn't know she is the murderer. Bo tells her to stop saying that because it isn't true and that he is going to find the murderer and personally escort them to prison… Back at the hospital, Lexie goes to see the twins and they are talking about being DiMera's, and having a real family. Cassie sees Lexie and says she is part of the family too. Lexie says she can't think about them being related to Tony right now because she's too focused on Tony's surgery. They ask Lexie about her history with Tony. They see that she and Tony are very close. She agrees, but reminds them they were not raised together, as they were. She says she already had a wonderful family, a mother, and a loving husband…when she found out she was a DiMera. They were not too pleased, as they did not think much of the family. However, she says she learned to get along with everyone. She says if they are DiMera's, then they are related to John and Belle. Cassie says Rex doesn't want that because he likes Belle in a girlfriend kind of way. Lexie says would be great if they were family. Lexie says she's going to see what the status is on Tony and she leaves. Cassie then tells Rex that if they are DiMera's, then Belle will be off limits to him. Rex says she already is off limits, but Cassie says she won't be for long. Rex tells Cassie to stop, but Cassie says Shawn is her true love. She admits if she couldn't be with Shawn because he was family then she would be devastated… Back at the Nurses station, Lexie learns that she doesn't share the same blood marker as Tony, and hopes that Cassie giving blood is enough. Then, Brenda gets a phone call and tells Lexie that Tony is out of surgery. She worries that it is too soon. She goes back to the twins to tell them that Tony is out of surgery already. Early. They wonder if he will walk again… In Marlena's office, John is pacing the floor, and just about to go looking for her, when she comes in. She asks him to look at the papers she brought….they may have answers to the questions they have had about the twin's parentage. Marlena tells John that she's felt more emotionally connected to the twins then she's been willing to admit. She also tells him that she has had vague memories that include a lullaby, and a sense of loss. She didn't tell him before because of what he was going thru learning about Tony being his brother. She says at first she thought it was her being separated from Sami and Eric when they were younger, but that was not it. So she had some research done to try and show her blood type, mixed with Tony's could not parent the twins….but it showed just the opposite. She could be their mother. Marlena is very upset, and John assures her that if they got through Tony being his brother together, they will get through this. She reminds him of how connected she feels to the twins, and he says that he understands that, but asks her not to expect him to feel the same way. They talk about the research, and Marlena wonders what if Stefano is the father. She is horrified at the idea. John tells her that until they know for sure whether she and Stefano are the parents, they must be very careful, and they are going to research the past. John tells her the one way they may get their answers is to revisit DiMera Island….and since Tony is laid up, now would be the best time to do so. Marlena, drying her tears, agrees…moreless
