PREVIEW: Hope confronts Larry and confides in Bo; Roman turns his back on Kate. SUMMARY: John and Marlena arrive at the DiMera compound. She is a bit shaken, but John assures her that she will be okay. They are able to just walk in, which makes John think that someone was expecting them. Marlena is once again drawn to the painting of the ocean. She tells John that she is stronger now and is ready to face her memories…but that she is also afraid of what they may find there. John assures her that she had no power over what happened to her when she was there, reminding her that she was drugged and frightened. She asks what if they find out she gave birth to the twins and then gave them to Stefano to raise. Marlena begins to remember more as she looks at the picture and hears the sound of the crashing waves. She says she thought at first it was fear she was feeling when she heard the sound, but now she knows it is grief. She then realized that the sound of the ocean calmed her. Marlena then has a flash of the operating room, and she is singing "rock-a-bye-baby". A voice tells Marlena that she did the right thing and she won't regret it. Marlena cries and tells John that "he" told her that she wouldn't regret it. Back to reality, Marlena is crying and she tells John everything, but he wonders, "regret what?"… At the Hospital, Craig and Dr. Ash are with Tony and he is very anxious to get out of there, demanding to Craig that he be released today. Craig tells him that he is not ready to release Tony. Dr. Ash says he will take full responsibility for Tony's rehab. Dr. Ash convinces Craig to leave with him and they will talk in Craig office. The two leave and Tony tells Rex that Craig is being too cautious. Rex says that he agrees with Craig and Tony says how he always gives everyone the benefit of the doubt. He tells him that he is such an independent thinker. Rex tells him he wishes everyone would quit thinking that, but Tony tells him that they will all make up for lost time when he gets home. Rex tells Tony that he shouldn't be worrying about him, it is Cassie that is desperate for love and family and that she still thinks this fairy tale family is going to come true. Tony says that they can count on him and the DiMera's. Rex says it was the DiMera's that locked them up and turned them into freaks! Tony says that they are not freaks, and he will try to make right his father's wrongs and give them the life that they deserve and give them as normal of a life as possible. Rex tells him to only worry about Cassie. Dr. Ash returns to them and Rex leaves to go back to school Dr. Ash says Dr. Wesley insists he stays in the hospital. But, Tony says he wants out of the hospital NOW and tells Dr. Ash to make it happen. He says that they both know that he is far better off recuperating at home. Later on, Craig comes back and releases him, but says he is putting in the report that is against his better judgment. Once alone, Tony gets a phone call from Rolf, who informs him that John and Marlena are at the compound. He says that they are right on time and just too predictable as he chuckles… In the Lobby of the hospital, Belle sees Cassie and offers her a ride back to school, giving her a chance to talk to her about Shawn. Once they arrive back at the dorm, Cassie is going on and on about everything under the sun and Belle suddenly stops her, wanting to talk about Shawn. She asks Cassie to respect Shawn's wishes and give him space so he can sort through his problems. Cassie then realizes that Belle doesn't want her to see Shawn while she is away, but she promises to be there for him, because she isn't going anywhere, unlike Belle. Belle tells her that she has had a crush on Shawn since the night they gave them CPR, when she experienced what felt like a kiss. Cassie says it isn't a crush… at least not anymore. She says she and Shawn have grown closer, more like best friends, and they share things. Belle asks her if Shawn has told her what is going on with him right now and she says yes. Belle is hurt, and asks to be left alone. Cassie, with a very satisfied smile on her face, leaves. Once outside, Cassie says be careful about asking for honesty…you may learn things you don't like. Later, Belle is laying on her bed, holding a picture of Shawn and crying. Rex then comes by and is asking about Cassie. Belle is sure that she is where ever Shawn is. Belle tells him that Shawn can't tell her what is wrong, but he can tell Cassie. Belle says but soon she'll be thousands of miles away, and he won't have to worry about protecting her anymore. Seeing that she is upset, Rex goes over and hugs her… At Basic Black, Kate slept on John's desk and she wakes up to find Roman sitting across from her. She realizes that they are still locked in John's office and she is furious with him. He tells her that he will let her out if she tells him what she knows about Stefano. She refuses and only wants a toothbrush and coffee. Roman refuses to leave her alone and is not giving up. Kate is sick of this game, and she says she knows this is just a game. She snaps that he was only using her for information. He admits yes, at first, but it didn't take long for him to fall for her. They throw insults back and forth and Kate tells him that he "would unzip for anything in a dress". Roman says he cares for her a lot, and he wants to help her. He hates seeing her being sucked into Tony's world, and he doesn't want to see another DiMera hurt her. Kate tells Roman that he is the only person who can hurt her now! Roman says he cares about her, but Kate says she doesn't believe that. Kate thinks that Roman just used her, and Roman says Marlena sure was wrong about her. Kate can't believe Roman talked to Marlena about them, and she accuses him of trying to make Marlena jealous. Roman says he and Marlena's love was in the past, and she is the woman he wants. Kate says he doesn't want her, he is just using her to get what he really wants. Roman says it kills him to see her hurting like this. She tells him to leave her alone and he says if that is what she wants he will. He goes to unlock the door, telling her he is NOT giving up, she needs to trust someone. He leaves and Kate turns around, with tears in her eyes… At the police station, Shawn arrives to meet with his father, per his request. He walks into Abe's office and sees his name and Belle's on the suspect board, rattling him. Bo comes in and startles him, with causes Shawn to nearly jump out of his skin. Bo calms him down, explaining it is routine to list everyone that was there. Bo tells Shawn about the dish towel in the garbage, but never mentions the blood on it. He asks him if he saw anyone put it in the garbage, but Shawn says no, and he wants to know what his dad isn't telling him. He says it is no big deal, Hope is just having some memory problems and is misplacing things. Shawn suggests to Bo to take himself off the case, but Bo refuses, vowing to catch the killer. Shawn asks him why he cares who killed Colin, he didn't even like the guy. Bo says it is his job to find this killer and put them away. Shawn continues to freak out, and says he has to leave. Bo sees how jumpy and nervous Shawn is and asks Shawn if he wants to talk about something? Shawn says no, and races off. Once outside, Cassie calls Shawn's cell phone and he tells her that he has to tell what he did. She tells no and that he has to come and pick her up at the dorm. Shawn agrees and hangs up and walks out. Once gone, we see Bo standing in the doorway with a puzzled look on his face... At the Brady Home, Hope returns from a jog and Larry is watching. She goes inside and sees her pills. She decides she needs to eat something before she takes any and heads to the kitchen. Larry runs in and switches the bottles. Hope returns and notices that the bottle seems to have more pills in it than before. She sees the door is cracked open and walks over to it. She opens it to find Larry standing there. She tells Larry that she will fight him and get rid of him! Larry says the only thing that will get rid of him is for her confess to the murder and she covers her ears. She reaches out to grab Larry and he turns and runs off. She goes back inside and ponders taking the pills until she realizes that she faced Larry on her own. She keeps thinking about it and is unsettled because unlike before, Larry turned and ran away, the last time he vanished into thin air. She heads outside to look around, and doesn't see anything. She then tosses the bottle of pills in the garbage can… Shawn and Cassie come to the house to check on Hope, but Shawn sees that Hope's car is gone. He tells Cassie about Hope's strange behavior lately and how scared she is. He blames himself and kicks the garbage can over, the pill bottle falling out. Cassie tells him he needs to find a way to calm down. Shawn bends down to pick up the mess and sees Hope's pills and Cassie asks what they are. He tells her that they are some kind of tranquilizers. She tells him maybe he should take one... Meanwhile, Hope goes to the station and tells Bo about her latest "vision" of Larry, and how he seemed really real this time. She tells him that is was really hard for her to believe that he was just in her head this time. She is really worked up as Bo tries to calm her down. She tells him that she went to make him disappear, but instead of disappearing he turned and ran! Hope says this time it scared her because she didn't think it was all in her head. She excuses herself to use the rest room as Bo begins to think about all she told him. He begins to wonder if Larry is really dead. He wonders why Larry would be telling her to confess to a murder that happened after he was killed??? He asks "Is Hope seeing the REAL Larry?…Is that bastard still alive?"…fade…moreless
Tony: My father made many mistakes in his life, but none so grave as bringing you and Cassie in to use you for his own ends. You're not freaks. You're wonderful, sensitive human beings who deserve another chance for a normal life, and I will give you that. Imagine -- home and hearth, family, even a dog, snoozing on a rug in front of a fire. Whatever you need. Rex: Look, we don't need anything that complicated. Just the simple things. They're the things that really matter, especially for Cassie. Tony: What a brother you are, Rex. I've heard you. I'll pay special attention to Cassie's needs for security and love. [ Door opens ] Tony: Doctor! Oh! Good news, I hope. Rex: I got to get back to school. Tony: Oh, I meant every word I said. Rex: Words don't impress me. Tony: Fair enough, but I'll prove to you that I spoke the truth as soon as I'm sprung from this place.
