PREVIEW: John gives Tony some ground rules about Marlena -- and confides his true feelings to Kate; Chloe begins her treatments. SUMMARY: In Chloe's hospital room, she is laying there and Brady is staying right by her side. She has just had her first radiation treatment and is being told what lies ahead for her. She asks Brady to hold her as she is very scared. Brady gets up on the bed next to her and tells her he will help her through this time. Brady compares this experience with a caterpillar to butterfly metamorphosis. She'll be re-born in a sense after this procedure. Later, Craig comes in and Brady excuses himself to check some cell phone messages. Craig tells Chloe that he talked with her oncologist about her tests and she is going to be okay. Craig gives her a kiss and says everything will be okay. Chloe tells him that she's dreamed of this day for so long, and tells him how when she was young and burst her head open and needed stitches. She whacked her head on a dresser while doing ballet spins and was taken to the ER. While in the ER she remembers praying that her daddy would come and kiss her owie and tell her everything would be okay. Craig bends over and kisses her forehead gently and tells her everything will be OK (very touching scene here). Later, Chloe wake up and finds Brady fluttering a stuffed butterfly he got for her at Barron's Department Store. She tells him she wants him to take a nap with her and he kisses her, agreeing. We return to Brady thinking Chloe is asleep cuddling her butterfly and tries to get up, but she opens her eyes and asks him not to leave… In other areas of the hospital, Nancy is still in labor. She is extremely frustrated that they won't let her go to Chloe's bedside, but Craig assures her that Brady is by Chloe's side. Nancy kids with Craig that their new daughter is already causing problems by taking her time. As time goes on, Nancy grows more and more frustrated about not being able to be near Chloe when she has a strong contraction. Craig tells her she can't get up with the epidural. She continues to have strong contractions and she realizes that she can feel his hand on her leg, saying the epidural has worn off and she wants to go be with Chloe! He tells her no, but she tells him either he helps her or she's going on her own… At Dot.Com, Lucas is talking with Kate about Brandon and Sami moving in together, and he is furious because Sami did not consult with him before she moved in with Brandon. Lucas damns Sami for doing this to him and Will and he wishes he could ring her neck. Roman shows up and suggests he not do that. Roman catches on after listening to Kate defend Sami's having someone live with her as the way of the times. Roman shocks Lucas and Kate when he agrees with them, this is a bad idea because Will is impressionable and he doesn't want to see him getting attached to Brandon and have him leave. Lucas continues to badmouth Sami, saying she can't hold onto a man, so this will keep happening. Roman tells Lucas to stop pushing it. Kate asks Lucas to excuse them, and he agrees and comments on how "subtle" that was and goes to the counter for more coffee. Kate and Roman talk in private. Roman wishes Sami would have told him about this. He also thinks they should make a commitment and marry. Kate tells Roman that he is a hypocrite; they have been sleeping together for months without talk of a commitment. Roman disagrees and says he and Kate aren't living together, nor do they have a small child to worry about. Kate asks why they can't just have a few laughs and good sex then? Roman suggests they can fix that. Kate jokes if he is talking about making an honest woman out of her? Roman gets embarrassed and she laughs and tells him not to worry. Roman says he has to take off, he will call her later and he leaves. Lucas returns and asks what happened. She tells him, and he asks her if she would really want to marry Roman. Kate tells a surprised Lucas that Roman's probably been the best guy she's ever involved with. After Lucas mentions Roman's virtuous tendencies, Kate admits that's why she knew their relationship was doomed from the start... Later on, Lucas is listening to some music and bumps into a gal, but can't place her. We learn she's Nurse Deb from the 3rd floor nurses station. She is very open that she is hitting on him and they hit it off, and talk about jazz singers they like. They discover they both like older jazz and how she's not seeing anyone right now. Lucas suggests they go back to his apartment for some food, jazz and whatever else might happen. She zeros in on him and accepts, saying she thinks they'll be on the same wavelength about a lot of things… At the Hartley House, Marlena has gone there to see the twins. She heads to Rex and Shawn's room and catches Rex just as he was leaving, but he decides to make time for her. Marlena is impressed by his room and she inquires about an object and is told it's an atom smasher. He explains he made it, not even a school project. Marlena was hoping to see Cassie as well and learns Cassie aced another history test. Marlena is shocked to learn Cassie doesn't even go to class yet aces everything. Rex tells her he goes to his classes, but Cassie kids it's only to check out the girls in them. Cassie automatically assumes Marlena's surprise at their intelligence as thinking they're freaks. Marlena says no, she thinks of them as incredibly gifted. Cassie and Marlena admit they couldn't sleep thinking about this new development. Cassie asks how she could have forgotten giving birth to them? Marlena can't explain how come the memory was lost to her about their birth, but felt the connection the first time she met them. She'll love them forever now. Rex says she isn't to blame, she was a victim of Stefano just like they were. Cassie worries that they may be like Stefano, but she says they won't. Marlena asks them to go to breakfast and talk, but Rex says they have been invited to brunch at the mansion. Cassie tells Rex she'll drive herself and she'll meet Rex there. Once alone with Marlena, Cassie asks if this is only temporary again, like before. Marlena assures her it's not and she would do anything to change what happened to them. Cassie sees Marlena is crying, and is touched. Cassie asks if she's going to work now, but Marlena tells her she's going to stop by and see John first… At the DiMera mansion, Tony is having some sort of a "meeting" with two gentleman in the living room with the doors closed and Eliana disturbs him to let him know John Black is here and won't leave until he sees him. Tony goes to see John, who wants to talk to Tony about some rules for their little family. Tony questions John's sincerity in welcoming the twins into the family. John tells him he came in peace. He realizes Tony is trying to cover something and pushes him to learn more and suggests they go in the living room and talk, but Tony says no. John pushes and Tony tells him that he's expecting Cassie and Rex for brunch and the staff is preparing the living room for it, so it's off limits. John doesn't believe him, and decides to lay down the ground rules. He says #1: Marlena is not to be hurt and #2: Tony is not to feel anything about his wife. Tony warns John to control the green eyed monster. John warns him to listen to what he said or the twins will lose the father that they just found. John takes off and once alone, Tony tells "bro" they're playing this game by his rules, not John's… At Basic Black, John arrives and Marlena walks in right behind him. John tells her about seeing Tony and that he tried to make a truce with him for her sake and for the twins, but things didn't go so well. She tells him that she hopes they didn't have another sword fight. He chuckles and tells her no. She tells him about her visit with the twins and hoping things will work out in time. Cassie is standing in the doorway and overheard her say that and says she can start now. She asks Marlena if they could still have that late breakfast together, "Mom". Marlena is thrilled until Cassie mentions having it at Tony's. Marlena doesn't think that's such a good idea, but John disagrees and tells them to have a good time. Marlena agrees and after she and Cassie have left, tells himself "damn, damn, damn"...just as Kate walks in. He tells her about Tony and Marlena being the twins parents and Marlena's heading to the "lions den", with his blessing. Kate inquires if John has investigated Tony, knowing his ex-cop background. He agrees and asks her to keep it from Marlena. Kate's secretary buzzes in that she has a visitor and Kate exits to find Roman waiting for her in the lobby. He apologizes for running out on her earlier and she tells him she was only teasing him about a wedding and thought he liked playing games. He tells her he does, but his way as he grabs her into a big kiss. A black man watches from behind a plant and has a big smile on his face. Roman suggests they leave, but Kate tells him they can go to her office and lock the door… Back at the DiMera mansion, the two men Tony was meeting with leave. They leave saying they'll contact him when "it's" over. Rex comes to the door just as they've left and when he questions who they were, Tony tells him they are accountants, tax season. Rex shrugs it off and Tony questions where Cassie is and Rex tells him that she's with Marlena. Listening to Tony talking about how Marlena is the most caring, unselfish woman, Rex tells Tony he know that he loves her. The two sit at the chess board and Tony explains that Marlena is married to John Black and doesn't trust him in lieu of everything his father did to her. There's no point in loving a woman who can't return his affection and therefore there is no point in him answering the question. Cassie and Marlena show up, and Tony thanks Marlena for coming. Tony sends Rex to tell cook they're ready to eat and Cassie offers to hang up Marlena's coat. Marlena tells Tony that it was John's suggestion she come and Tony feels they have to work together to make the twins feel loved. Tony agrees and says they should work together to do what is best for the twins… Once again at Basic Black, the strange black man enters John's office saying this place is alright and thought John was expecting him. John doesn't know him, but his eyebrow raises as the man says the magic words. "I have what you need to take Tony DiMera down". Freeze frame on John's face as that statement is said...moreless

      • Chloe: Ha, ha. Brady. Where did you find this?
        Brady: She found me, actually. When I was outside the hospital, she landed on my shoulder.
        Chloe: Ooh. Will wonders never cease?
        Brady: Yeah, and on her soft underbelly, you can actually see a Baron's Department Store label.

      • Lucas: Why'd he run off? (speaking of Roman) This coffee was for him.
        Kate: Well, I'm afraid you're going to have to drink it now.
        Lucas: Oh, great. What happened?
        Kate: Well, I was teasing him about playing fast and loose with my affections, having an affair with me without any commitment.
        Lucas: Wait a minute. You brought up marriage?
        Kate: Mm-hmm. Indirectly.
        Lucas: Oh, no wonder he took off.

      • Chloe: And as I lay on the table in the emergency room, I kept asking God to send me my daddy to be with me and to kiss my owie... and to tell me that everything was going to be okay.
        (Craig leans forward and kisses her forehead)
        Craig: Ohhh. Hey. Hey. Everything is going to be okay. All your prayers are going to come true.

      • Kate: Would you go get some more coffee for us, please?
        Lucas: Yes, I will… Subtle, mom -- real subtle.

      • Brady: Chloe, I've got it.
        Chloe: What?
        Brady: I want you to look at this whole experience as kind of a -- a metamorphosis.
        Chloe: What are you talking about?
        Brady: You're a caterpillar.
        Chloe: Is comparing me to a worm supposed to make me feel better?
        Brady: Hear me out. Think about what these little guys go through. In early spring, they -- they do their whole cocoon thing, they cover themselves up completely, and it can't be -- be easy or comfortable, being wrapped up tightly in -- in this claustrophobic pod. But they do it because they have to, and because there's a big payoff. 'Cause in a few short weeks, they -- they come out of their cocoon. And they don't just crawl out. They fly out as beautiful butterflies.
        Chloe: I wish I knew what you were getting at.
        Brady: No, that's -- that's the way that I want you to look at this treatment and this transplant. It's not going to be easy or comfortable, for that matter, going through all of these changes -- this metamorphosis, if you will -- but when it's all said and done, you're going to have a second chance.
        Chloe: I'll be reborn.
        Brady: As a beautiful butterfly.
