AIRED:
PREVIEW Shawn's day in court is disrupted by an outburst; Victor visits Larry in jail and blackmails him into a confession; Nicole reacts to Sami and Brandon's news. SUMMARY At Sami's apartment, Nicole shows up there looking for her brother. Sami says Brandon is at home – he has moved in with her. Nicole loses it and goes off, and says this is the worst idea Brandon has ever had! Lucas comes around the corner and agrees with Nicole. Sami tells him to mind his own business, but Lucas says this effects him because it effects Will, who is at an impressionable age. Brandon comes out and calms down Sami and states that they need to talk rationally with Lucas. Sami refuses but Brandon pulls her aside and convinces her. Sami says she will do this for him only. Lucas wants to know if they asked Will about this before they moved in together? Sami tells him that she doesn't have to ask his permission because she is his mother. Brandon tells Lucas to come inside to talk to Sami and he and Nicole will talk in the hall. Lucas comes inside and the two exchange some ugly words and Lucas tells her that Brandon doesn't really love her. He then threatens to take Will from her again. She warns him not to even think about trying that! Lucas says that Will is now old enough to pick which parent he wants to live with, and they both know who he would pick! The two continue to go back and forth, and Lucas says he is going to lay some ground rules which Sami will follow or else. Lucas tells her that number one is he doesn't want Will calling Brandon dad and he can't act like a father figure to Will. Sami refuses, and then flaunts in Lucas' face that one day Brandon will be Will's stepfather. Lucas laughs and tells Sami that she is pathetic if she thinks Brandon will ever marry her. Sami tells Lucas to get out, and starts throwing things at him. He doesn't leave at first, but more things go flying through the air. He eventually leaves… Meanwhile, in the hallway, Brandon talks with Nicole. She tells Brandon that she thinks Sami is manipulating and controlling him, but he says that she is the one being controlled and manipulated. Nicole whines and Brandon asks her what is wrong now? Nicole tells him that she is as good as dead. Brandon asks Nicole not to talk like that, and he asks what did Victor do to her? Nicole covers and says that Victor got mad at her for running off to the bars, and he was right to do so. She then says that Victor didn't marry her so that she could go boozing at trashy bars, and it is time she grows up. They then see Sami chase Lucas out, and Nicole tells Brandon to get back to his girlfriend because she has to get home. Nicole leaves, and Sami and Brandon go back inside. Sami then begs Brandon never to leave her alone with Lucas again because she hates him. Brandon says that he can't worry about Lucas right now because Nicole is in a bad place. Sami tries to distract him and she suggests they focus on one another. Sami begins telling Brandon how good it will be for Will having him here and showing him what a normal family is like. She tells Brandon maybe they should make things official. Brandon asks if she is talking about what he thinks she is talking about? He tells her that he loves her and is committed to her, but he wants to take things step-by-step to make sure it lasts. Sami is obviously hurt, but tells him that she understands… Nicole is waiting for the elevator in the hallway and runs into Lucas. He wonders why she isn't in a better mood. He tells her he will help her if he can, so she asks him to lend her some change. He isn't sure what is going on, but digs into his pocket and hands her a penny, and then snaps that is all she is worth. Nicole says she will flip the coin and that will decide whether she should stay or run. The coin says she should stay, so she decides to turn herself in, and she gets into the elevator. She leaves behind a very confused Lucas… Over at the police station, Victor shows up and says he wants to visit Larry. Larry wonders what he wants, but Victor just tells him that he wants him to help him solve the murder of Colin Murphy. Larry says everyone knows that it was Shawn that killed Colin. Victor snaps at Larry and tells him to shut up and listen to what he has to say. He shows Larry the bullet shell with Bo's name on it, and he says he knows what his plan was. He asks Larry how the plan went so wrong? Larry admits Colin was supposed to kill Bo for him, but he was an "incompetent hit man". Victor then taunts Larry with the list of charges against him. Larry tells him that he is beginning to feel a sense of day-ja-vous. Larry tells him the last time he visited him in jail, he made him take the wrap for a crime he didn't commit. But he asks Victor what wants him to take the fall for this time? Victor tells him to guess, and Larry knows what Victor wants. Larry tells Victor that he refuses to put his ass on death row to save Shawn Douglas. Victor tells him to do exactly what he says or else he will have him off'd in prison – and he knows he can do it. Victor then gives Larry instructions on what exactly what to say to the police… Meanwhile, Lexie shows up with some food for Abe. He is not in a good mood because Shawn is facing a life sentence. The two talk and Lexie lets her false alarm last night slip, and it worries Abe. She says they were just braxton-hicks contractions, and that she was checked out. Abe makes her promise to tell him if this ever happens again. Lexie tries to convince him to stop worrying about her. An officer comes in and says she needs to talk to Abe alone and Lexie heads home. The officer tells him about Larry Welch's visitor. Abe heads down to the cells and asks Victor what he wants with Larry? Victor tells him that he just wants to make sure Larry pays for what he did to Hope. Victor leaves and Abe goes to leave and Larry stops him, telling him he has to get something off his chest… At the courthouse, Grandpa Shawn tears into Roman for betraying his family. Meanwhile, Cassie continues to whine that she wants to talk to Shawn. Belle tells her to shut up! Meanwhile, Bo and Hope continue to plead with Shawn to take back his confession and plead not guilty. The hearing begins, and the judge tells Shawn that he is charged with the murder of Colin Murphy and how does he plead? Shawn says nothing. Shawn thinks about killing Colin, and Mickey tries to persuade him to change his mind. Shawn refuses, so Mickey enters a plea of guilty. Belle suddenly stands up and says, "Shawn, no!" Grandpa Shawn turns and gives Roman a nasty. Kate just holds Roman's hand, letting him know to ignore it. Belle then begins pleading to Shawn and begging him to plead not guilty. The judge threatens to throw Belle out if she does not stop this. She is convinced she can save him and she continues to plead with Shawn, but the judge has her taken out. Caroline and Jennifer go out to check on Belle. Shawn is asked once again if he wants to plead guilty? He turns and looks at his parents, stands up, and changes his plea to not guilty. The entire courtroom is relieved. The judge tells council to make their pleas and DA Palmer says that bail should be denied because he is a danger to the community as well as himself, and he is a flight risk because of favoritism in the police department. Bo stands up and yells that they cannot keep his son in jail! Bo is warned to sit down, or he will be joining Miss Black outside and Hope gets him to sit down. DA Palmer then continues that Shawn is a danger because he is a drug addict. Mickey tries to argue that Shawn didn't know what he was taking were dangerous but the judge agrees with the DA and decides to deny bail. Shawn is taken out, and the DA decides that Shawn will get no visitors other than his lawyer. Bo is furious and tries to attack Palmer. Roman gets Bo to calm down, but Bo refuses to take advice from him. Bo tells him if he had talked to Shawn first before arresting him then he would have realized Shawn was innocent. He tells him about Shawn's statement about shooting Colin in the back, and Roman says that's great, he is innocent. But the two get into a huge fight over Roman's betrayal of his family. Roman offers to help clear Shawn, but Bo says he doesn't want his help. However, Hope accepts it because the more help they get the better off Shawn is… Rex goes outside to tell Bell the news and Cassie wants to stay back to see Shawn, but he drags Cassie with him. Outside the courtroom, Belle is crying to Caroline and Jennifer that Shawn is in trouble and she couldn't help him. Just then, Rex comes out and tells Belle that she did help Shawn - he changed his plea to not guilty. Belle, Jennifer and Caroline are all relieved, and Caroline tells Belle that she did good. The three hug and Cassie looks very annoyed. Belle convinces Caroline and Jennifer to go back inside, she is OK now. Rex tells Belle that what she did was very brave. She says she wasn't trying to be brave. Belle then tells Cassie that she will probably be called to testify, so she needs to be very careful about what she says. Cassie says she will help Shawn any way she can. The head back inside the courtroom and Belle sees Shawn as he is being taken away, and she tells Shawn to remember that she loves him. Belle hugs Shawn, and once again, Cassie is extremely annoyed. Shawn does not take his eyes off of Belle and he tells her that it will be okay, and he is dragged off. He is still focused completely on Belle. Bo stops the cops and tells Shawn that he will find the real killer. Hope hugs Shawn and says she loves him. Once more, Cassie is more than a little annoyed when Shawn tells them that he loves them all, and he asks his parents to take care of Belle. Hope takes and holds Belle and tells him they sure will...moreless

      • Nicole: Could you spare some change?
        Lucas: You want change? Like what, like a nickel or a quarter or something?
        Nicole: Just a coin. Any coin.
        Lucas: Let me see what I got here. [Reaches into his pocket] Oh, yeah. I got a penny for you. It's about all you're worth. [Hands her the coin]
        Nicole: Heads, I stay. Tails... I run.
        Lucas: Isn't it a little late to flip a coin? I mean, the wedding's over. You, uh, you made your bed, as they say.
        Nicole: [Flips the coin] Heads. Looks like I'm turning myself in.
        Lucas: Ah. Really? Turning yourself into what? [Nicole gets into the elevator and the door closes] Hey, give me my penny back.

      • Victor: There's quite an impressive list of charges against you.
        Larry: [Proudly] Thank you.
        Victor: There's one missing. I'd like the you out with that.
        Larry: You know, Victor... I feel a case of déja vu coming on. Years ago, you had me take the fall for a crime I didn't commit. Is that why you're here?
        Victor: You're smarter than you look.
        Larry: Mmmm... Well, I'll bite. What do you want me to take the fall for this time? I'm not saying I'm going to do it. I'm just curious.
        Victor: I'll give you three guesses, but I'll bet you can do it in just one.
        Larry: Colin Murphy's murder. No damn way. I am not going to put my ass on death row so your grandson can skate!
        Victor: Keep your damn voice down.
        Larry: I'm not doing it. No way.
        Victor: You'll do exactly what I tell you to do, otherwise you're dead. And you know I can arrange that, even in prison…
