Episode Summary

Ep. #9517
PREVIEW: Marlena blasts John for his secret spy game; Belle gets a surprise when she calls Shawn; Roman digs up dirt on Kate. SUMMARY: At the Hospital, John shows up to see Marlena. It seems that she left this morning without saying good bye. She is extremely cold to him and snaps that she is there because she is a doctor and has patients. But she wants to know where he was last night, and she wants the truth. He avoids the question but she already has her suspicions that he is after Tony, and she lets him know that she is not pleased with him and storms off… Brady is sitting with Chloe and Belle watches the two of them from outside her door. She is having trouble falling asleep and he offers to tell her a bedtime story. She eventually drifts off to sleep and he spots Belle and slips out. He tells her what is going on with Chloe and Belle tells him that she could see from his face that he is in love. She tells Brady that she is still upset that Shawn didn't trust her enough to tell her what he was going through, and now he's away. Brady tries to comfort her. She tells him that she can't believe how Shawn treated her. Craig comes by and tells them that the harvesting of Joy's bone marrow was a success and they are ready to proceed with the transplant as soon as Chloe is up to it. Brady goes back in to tell Chloe the good news just as she is waking up. Later, Belle is sitting visiting with Chloe and they talk about Brady. Belle has brought some more magazines and offers to read to her. Chloe tells Belle that she is impressed with her fashion sense and Belle talks about how she was going to study design in Paris and that it was cut short. Chloe tells her that she thinks that she and Shawn are "star-crossed" and thinks it is romantic. Belle expresses that she feels otherwise. Belle asks Chloe about her and Brady's "closeness" and Chloe wonders if she means sex. Chloe is a little embarrassed to talk about it, but does tell her that they are happy in every way and she believes that they were meant to be. Belle admits she's not sure if she can trust her body with Shawn when he can't trust her completely enough to confide his secrets with her. Chloe tells Belle that maybe she should wait until she's in a good place with Shawn. Just then, Brady walks in and they quickly get quiet. He offers to leave so they can talk some more, but Chloe asks him to stay. He tells her that he has a surprise for her: Basic Black edited their video from Colorado and added some music to it. He puts it in the VCR and they watch. (The music playing in the background is Chloe singing "Easy to Love" as they sang that night in the hot-tub). As the three of them watch it, Belle sees the two of them totally in tune with each other and she quietly slips out. The look on her face as she watched them makes it clear that she is envious of what they have. She goes into the hallway and goes to a pay phone. She calls a number and we hear a female voice on the other end answer and says, "Shawn Brady's number"…and she hangs up… At Basic Black, Kate is deep in thought when Roman comes in, bringing her briefcase that she left it at his place that morning. She tells him that she thinks that she is spending too much time thinking about him and it is effecting her judgment. He asks what is going on with her and she tells him that she was thinking about last night when they spent the evening with Bo and Hope and how she doesn't feel that she fits in with him or his family. She talks about her shady past as he says nothing she has ever done could change how he feels about her now. She cuts him off and rushes out to a meeting… Roman is alone in Kate's office when John drops in. John jokes with Roman wanting to know "when the hell did you start working for me?" They talk about Kate and Roman asks him how things are with the ISA. John tells him about investigating Tony and keeping Marlena out of the loop. Roman asks him since he is his police contact if he needs to tell him anything. John tells him that thinks Marlena would object to him working for the ISA and try to stop him because her children are involved. Roman thinks this would come between them. John blows up at Roman, telling him that he would like nothing better, but Roman explains that he is over Marlena and is moving on with Kate, after all, he's in her office waiting for her. John apologizes and says that he just misses being a Brady. Roman assures him that he will always be one of the family, but John tells him that he can understand how Kate has those feelings of not fitting in. Roman assures John that his family is great and should be proud of them. John thanks him and leaves as Roman waits for Kate to return… Once Kate does return later, she finds Roman sitting at her desk reading articles she downloaded from the internet. She gets very angry with him and threatens to call security. He says he had the right to read them, since they are all about him. She admits to having him investigated and she says that all she learned is that he is a good guy. She says she feels that she is the opposite and has lost her moral center. He thinks she is too hard on herself and he kisses her. She asks him to leave so she can get some work done. On his way out, he informs her that he too is going to be doing some investigating on her to learn all he can about her. Once gone, Kate says she doesn't think that's a good idea… Over at the DiMera Mansion, Tony is having breakfast and is joined by Rex. After talking a bit, Tony realizes just how intelligent Rex really is, as he told him that his IQ test "freaked out" the doctors. Rex asks Tony just what is he up to…he knows he is involved in something and he isn't fooling him. He says that he noticed all the new security cameras around the mansion. Tony covers and tells him that it is to protect the two of them. Rex says he doesn't buy it, and points out that they live at the dorm most of the time. Rex mentions Dr. Putnam and Tony asks Rex if he knows where he is. Rex wonders why all the questions and he asks Tony why he has so many secrets and wants to know what the plan is. Rex can't understand all this, but Tony explains that keeping your secrets is important to build up your power and keep it. Tony advises him to wear a mask and armor at all times and that he must never reveal his real feelings. He tells him who you are is your own business… Tony tells Rex that maybe he doesn't crave power like him but Rex assures him that he does want to control his own destiny. Rex talks about not wanting to be a "normal" person, putting in your time at a job, much like the Brady's. Marlena comes in, surprised that Eliana just let her right in, without announcing her. Tony says that the staff has been told that this is Marlena's second home and can come and go as she pleases. This makes her a little nervous but she says that she is there to see the children and Tony offers to leave her and Rex alone. She tells him about her fight with John and how she fears that John is keeping secrets from her. Tony was listening in and he pipes up saying he knows where John was last night and what he was up to. After excusing Rex, Tony tells her about John breaking in and planting the bug. Tony goes on about how John is after him. Marlena tells him that she will see that John does not disrupt the children's' lives and abruptly leaves. Once she is gone, Tony smiles. Rex returns and blasts Tony for making Marlena upset enough that she left without saying good bye. Tony tries to explain that she only wants what is best for them. Rex demands to know why John was there and if Tony is trying to take Marlena away from him. Tony says it would serve John right. Rex asks if it is because of what happened with Kristen, is he after revenge? Rex asks Tony if he is looking for second chance at love. Rex tells him that it is apparent that Tony is in love with Marlena and asks him about the mask and armor he is supposed to be wearing… Back at the Hospital, John tracks Marlena down after she leaves the mansion and he tells her that they need to talk and that he doesn't want her angry with him. She asks if he has good reason for breaking in and spying on Tony. She is extremely angry with him and says she demands to know what he is up to. John tells her that it is between him and Tony. Marlena barks at him, "The hell it is!" and storms off disgusted…moreless

      • Rex: Look, I know you're new at this -- you've never played the role of a father before -- but you're pretty much blowing it right now.

      • Tony: Wait a moment - you should be taking a Chemistry class, taking notes and soaking up knowledge.
        Rex: I tested out of that class.
        Tony: What do you mean, "tested out"? It was an advanced class!
        Rex: Yeah, they're trying to find a professor who can teach me something I don't already know.
        Tony: Well, maybe we should have your I.Q. Tested.
        Rex: Oh, you're too late. When Cassie and I first came to Salem, the experts tested everything about us. My I.Q. Totally freaked them out.

      • Kate: No. No, it's not you. Actually, I was, um... I was just thinking about last night.
        Roman: Yeah.
        Kate: Being with your brother and your sister-in-law.
