PREVIEW: Shawn is released and rushes to find Belle; Jennfier stops the presses with word of Larry's confession. SUMMARY: At the DiMera, mansion, we return to Marlena and Tony telling the twins that they're their parents. Belle and Brady walk in and overhear from the foyer. John explains that they were conceived in a lab and that on the island, Marlena remembered giving birth to the twins, and it appears that Tony is their father. Marlena reminds them that she once had a strong maternal sense towards them from the first time she saw them in the Brady garage. Tony promises Cassie and Rex that they are part of the family they've always longed for, but Cassie thinks they can't be a family because Tony and Marlena aren't married. Marlena rationalizes this notion and attempts to explain that there is more to being a family than just a marriage and she tells the twins they have a place in her family. Rex says that can't be because the two of them don't even like each other. Tony disagrees, he says he likes their mother very much. John also tells the twins that he knows he was harsh with them at first, but that's because his focus has been on protecting his family and that's why he's acted in the way he has to them, but in lieu of this news, he's willing to reevaluate their relationship. Cassie snaps at John and tells him "too little, too late". She then says they will never have enough love in their hearts for her and Rex because they only love Belle and Brady and will only feel contempt for them. John tells Cassie that he knows how she feels because he felt the same way when he came to Salem with no memory and no one to care for him. He says that he resisted love from others and asks her not to do the same. He tells her that the most wonderful mother in the whole world is standing right there and he suggests to Cassie that she let Marlena do that. Brady walks over and hugs Rex and welcomes him to the family. He stands in front of Cassie and she cries. Marlena hugs Belle while Rex asks Tony if he's sure about this. Marlena tries to help the situation and tells them that when she remembered their birth, a cloaked figure took them away on a boat and she screamed for them. Everyone watches as Marlena remembers and Rex and Cassie can see Marlena's pain, and the love she feels for them. Tony and John ask Marlena if when they found her on the cliff, if that was the memory she was having. She says yes. She remembers calling out, but forgot about it until now. She stands up and Rex goes to her open arms. Cassie is unsure and watches. She finally rushes into Marlena's arms in tears and calls her mom. Marlena assures her everything will be alright. Belle is having a hard time with this and runs out. Brady privately tells John that he is impressed that he is taking this so well and John says he'll accept the twins for Marlena's sake, but still vows to bring down Tony… At the police station, Bo and Hope are visiting Shawn celebrating the news of Larry's confession when suddenly DA Palmer bursts in, furious that his "no visitors" order has been defied. Bo and Palmer go head to head, and Palmer accuses the Brady's of running the department single handedly, which he vows to bring to and end. Bo tells Palmer a.k.a. the "little man" that his loud mouth and arrogance prevails. Hope and Shawn try to keep Bo calm as Palmer shouts in Bo's face telling him to hit him. Abe and Roman walk in and Abe tells them both to shut up. They tell them that they have retrieved the murder weapon and the lab just confirmed it. Palmer thinks this is great news, just what they need to charge Shawn. When asked where they found it, they say it was right where Larry said it would be. Palmer accuses the Brady's of covering up again and Roman tells Palmer to back down. Abe pulls both Palmer and Roman into the hall to talk. Alone in the visiting room, Hope and Shawn hug as Bo takes in Palmer's reaction. Bo overhears Roman going to bat for Shawn and is touched. Palmer returns to the visiting room and tells Shawn he's free to go. Bo tells Roman he overheard him with Palmer in the hall and although still upset with him, he appreciated it. Shawn tells his parents he'll see them at home later as he's anxious to see Zack.. There's someone else he's got to see right now. Hope winks at Bo and tells him ok. Shawn just walks out, big smile on his face… Shawn rushes to the dorm room, and he is standing outside of Belle's room. He remembers their discussion in the visiting room before knocking softly. He receives no response and he walks into the dark room and sees Belle is asleep. He quietly walks over to her bed and kisses her hair. Mimi jumps up as he falls to the floor! She says that she has a nasty cold because her immune system was down because of worrying about him and asks if he's really there? Mimi just keeps rambling on and finally hugs him. She tells him her coughing was keeping her little brother up all night, and she thought Belle is in Paris, so that's why she's in her room. She continues rambling. Even Shawn laughs, saying it's good to be around her and laughing again. The two friends hug. Mimi's cell phone rings and it's Belle. She doesn't tell Belle about Shawn, she suggests Belle come to the dorm and talk, but Belle tells her she's got a lot of thinking to do and is going for a walk along the pier. Mimi hangs up and tells Shawn, who rushes off to the pier as well… Bo and Hope return home as the clean up crew is replacing their broken window. The furniture is draped with cloths and the foreman tells him they'll be done soon. Bo and Hope go back outside. Bo suggests they go somewhere else, but Hope says that she knows she has to work through it and Larry's not driving her out of her own home. Bo suggests she tell him what happened and they'll work through it together. They walk back inside and the crew leaves, saying they'll be back tomorrow to finish up. Hope says she is going to get some clean clothes to take back to the pub for the night. Bo suggests they stay there, but frantic, Hope says no. Bo thinks they should spend the night in their own bed and try to expel her demons with Larry. Bo wants to fill her mind with happy memories and carries her upstairs... At the Salem Spectator, Jack and Jennifer are desperately trying to find a spin on Shawn's story to help him with public opinion. Jennifer suggests to Jack that they point out how he saved his mother and girlfriend's lives. Harold interrupts and brings Jennifer the mail and she finds a letter from her father, saying he's sent her a surprise and he hopes she will be home to receive it because it should arrive soon. They just hope it's good news… Later, they are still hard at work when Harold answers the phone and comes rushing into Jennifer's office and trips over the wastebasket in the process! He has come to tell her that there is breaking news at the police station. Jennifer picks up the phone and learns new evidence came in and Shawn is free because Larry has confessed to Colin's murder. Jennifer calls for a staff meeting and orders them to "STOP THE PRESSES!" Jack teases her about her always wanting to say that as they focus on re-doing the front page. Jennifer issues assignments and she sends Harold to the police station for the full story. Jack asks Jennifer for something and she kisses him on the cheek, willing to get him anything he wants. The two share a big kiss right on the lips as he types away like crazy. Later, the story is off to the presses. Jennifer sits on Jack's lap saying that they can't go home until the papers hit the street. Jack says that's OK and he closes the blinds, locks the door and turns off the light as they fall to the floor. We hear Jennifer saying, "Oh Jack" as the scene closes… Meanwhile, back inside the DiMera mansion, Tony smiles at Cassie and Rex and promises to always take good care of his family. Marlena smiles while looking at the twins as well, but looks up to find Tony smiling at her when he said that he will always take good care of his family and her smile falls and freeze frame and fade…moreless

  • TRIVIA (0)

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Mimi: (speaking very quickly) I know people always say this when strange things happen, so it's become like this dumb cliché, but I'm not just saying it. I swear, this has got to be a dream.
      Shawn: No, it's real. I'm here. Really.
      Mimi: (still speaking quickly)You do seem to be. Besides, I could always tell reality from a dream, even though I could never tell a dream from reality. Isn't that totally bizarre? You know how you wake up from some insane dream -- like your brother turns into a pencil or something equally outrageous -- and you think, "how could I have just bought into that?" But this -- this is totally buy-into-able, even if it is totally strange.
      Shawn: What are you talking about?
      Mimi: I don't even know. I should just shut up and cry, because that's what I feel like doing.
      Shawn: No.
      Mimi: Why am I rambling on like an idiot?

    • Jennifer: Harold, stop the presses! Everybody, get ready for rewrites.
      Harold: Stop the presses!
      Jennifer (to Jack): Great. Come on!
      Jack: "Stop the presses"?
      Jennifer: Yes. Go…back at the computer, Jack.
      Jack: You always wanted to say that, didn't you?

    • Carson: Go on. Go on! Hit me. That's really the only thing you know.
      Bo: I should knock your arrogant butt into next week.

    • Bo (to Carson): What are you accusing me of, little man?

    • Jennifer: Oh, this is driving me crazy.
      Jack: Maybe -- maybe we should focus more on Colin Murphy.
      Jennifer: As in?
      Jack: As in... what was the mysterious Dr. Murphy, cloaked in a shroud of suspicion, doing outside the mansion window that night -- peeping, stalking prey?… Right, right. Ahem. Any way we cut it, it's still not mustard.

    • Carson: He confessed... after Brady did. Well, well, well. How convenient. I smell the usual rat -- or two or three.
