PREVIEW: Hope freaks out in court; Abby gets a new, African pet; Shawn finds Belle in his bed. SUMMARY: In Salem Park, Brandon has met his mom for lunch, and he tells her about moving in with Sami. She is not happy and he gets upset and she thinks that Sami Brady is nothing but trouble and for him to think with his head. After the two of them go a few rounds about how Sami will break his heart he just asks her to give Sami a chance and she eventually agrees to keep an open mind… At the Hartley House, Shawn returns to his room from baseball practice to find Belle in his bed waiting for him but he tells her that he's coming down with a cold and doesn't want to get her sick. Belle is still very uneasy about the fact that Cassie and Rex are her new siblings. She expresses that she's upset about Larry Welch and how she has been thinking about how she almost died. He tells that he's going off for their first away game, but promises to spend lots of time with her when he returns. She tells him that she feels that she needs to go to the hearing for closure but she is not sure she can face the man who almost killed her. Shawn promises to stand by her as they head out for the hearing... Over at the Kiriakis Mansion, Nicole comes downstairs dressed to go riding, but Victor demands to know where she is going. The two exchange words as she still feels she is being kept a prisoner. They are interrupted by the doorbell and Victor tells Nicole to answer it. She answers it to find Kate. Kate is there to inform them that Larry is being sentenced today. Nicole says that she doesn't care, but Kate is making Nicole extremely fidgety. Victor tells Kate to leave, but Kate mentions Philip. She explains that he has a leave coming up and he is just very busy. Victor listens as she tells him this but informs her that in the future, the news of Philip can be conveyed by telephone. Once Kate has left, Nicole panics, thinking that Kate is suspicious. Victor assures her that they are the only two who know the truth. He assures her that if Larry doesn't plead guilty, he will be killed. He then demands that she change, because she will be accompanying him to the hearing… At the DiMera Mansion, Tony is leaving to attend the hearing when he runs into Lexie. He tells her that he is going to make sure that Larry pays for framing Lexie for Hope and Zack's kidnapping. His talk makes her nervous, and she points out that he sounds too much like their father. He changes the subject and tells her that the twins are his and she is thrilled for him. She is, however, stunned once he tells her that Marlena is their mother. He tells her that he wants to make up for lost years and that he will look out for his family and he will protect all of them, including her. He realizes that he is late and rushes off. Fearful, Lexie follows him as she does not want him to take the law into his own hands… Over at the Courthouse, Hope arrives with Jack and Jennifer. Jennifer and Hope go inside and Jack and Carson Palmer exchange words. Jennifer asks Hope is she is sure that she really wants to be there, but Hope assures her that she needs to be there for her own peace of mind. Meanwhile, Larry is still in his cell and Bo comes to see him and tells him that the judge is going to throw the book at him. Larry proudly says he turned Hope into a "whack job" as Bo grabs him through the bars and begins to choke him. He asks him what it feels like to have his life in someone else's hands. Abe and Roman rush in and pull him off and Larry continues to taunt him, making fun of Hope. Larry just keeps at Bo and eventually Abe and Roman encourage Bo to leave. Before Bo leaves, he tells Larry that they are going to get him out of their lives for good. After they leave, Larry says "Don't bet on it!" Back outside the courtroom, Jack and Palmer are still at it and Jack blasts Palmer for his incompetence in this case, because he first had Jack, Jennifer, then Shawn and wonders if he is he sure that he has the right guy this time? Jack goes in and tells Jennifer head home and take care of Abby, he can handle this. Jennifer doesn't want to go until she gets a call from Abby, who tells her that Grandpa's gift has arrived and that there is a sticker on the box that says "Alive". Jennifer goes home, and tells Jack to cover the sentencing. Later on, Jennifer calls Jack, frazzled, and tells him to come home immediately; he hears a scream and he hears Jennifer yell at Abby to stay away from that and then they're cut off. Jack rushes out of the courtroom… At Jack and Jennifer's House, Jack approaches the front door, and he hears Jennifer yelling at Abby. He quietly goes inside and he grabs an umbrella for protection. He makes his way into the living room and Abby runs over to him and she tells him to look at her gift. He looks ahead and asks what the HELL is THAT? Abby tells him that his name is Horris and the camera pans over so we can see the weirdest black creature crawling across the sofa. (Photo courtesy of fuzzyphoto.com.) Jennifer tells Jack it is a "binturong" but Jack says he doesn't care where it's "been"…what is it? Abby wants to take it to school for show and tell and runs to the kitchen to get it something to eat. Later, Jack has gotten it into its cage, and Jennifer tells him that her father says there are more surprises to come. Jack tells Abby that Horris needs a nap and so does she and he sends her upstairs. A little later, Jennifer gets a phone call from the DA's office with a word of warning that they are not to print a word of Jack's earlier conversation with Palmer. Jack says that he is not afraid of him. They are interrupted by a noise and they turn around to see that the cage is empty and then they hear a crash in the other room... Back in the Courtroom, Kate arrives and spots Victor and Nicole arriving and takes the opportunity to taunt Nicole before taking her seat. Tony and Lexie arrive, and she explains to Abe she is there for Tony. Bo makes sure that Hope is okay as Larry is brought in. He looks her square in the eyes and says, "Hope…always a pleasure". Shawn and Belle also arrive and Larry and Victor share an evil eye and Larry remembers Victor's visit in jail. The hearing begins and Larry has waived his rights to counsel and will represent himself. Hope then remembers back to the night Larry had her and Belle trapped in her house. The judge asks if anyone has anything to say as the door opens and Alice enters, wanting to address the court. She takes the stand, and says that she is speaking on behalf of the Brady's and the Horton's. She looks at Larry and tells him he is a "very bad man". She says that she feels prison is too good for him, but she hopes they lock him up and "throw away the key". Hope mouths "thank you" to her. The judge then asks if anyone else has anything to say and Hope is going to take the stand. She talks about her family and Larry mumbles to himself he wonders if she wants any nachos to go with that cheese. She continues, saying she refuses to be angry anymore because it is sad that all he has in him is hate and bitterness. She says it doesn't matter what his sentence is, his punishment is inside of him, eating away at him until there is nothing but a hollow shell of a man. She says that she prays that he will never get the chance to hurt the ones she loves again. Once she finishes, Bo hugs her to show his support. The judge says they will take a brief recess and Tony approaches Larry and tells him that as soon as the judge passes his life sentence, the sooner he will be a dead man. Lexie hugs Hope, and tells her that she is proud of her. Nicole sees Tony and Larry talking and worries about it, but Victor tells her not to. The judge returns and allows Larry to make his statement. He gets up on the stand and says that he wants to change his plea to NOT GUILTY, the deal is off. He stares at Victor…then Hope…and fade…moreless
