PREVIEW: Shawn tries to convince Belle to quit the show; Sami is fed up with Brandon; Marlena and John reveal secrets. SUMMARY: At the Hospital, Lucas pulls Sami from her receptionist job to make copies of material for his board meeting. She refuses, but Brenda tells Sami to do as Lucas says and she has no problem covering for her as she's use to covering for Sami's two hour coffee breaks. He wants 5 copies collated before the meeting starts, 3 hole punched and in covers. Sami is furious as Brenda tells her the main copier has been having problems and she'll have to double check everything. Brandon approaches Sami and she vents that she is angry that she has to be Lucas' errand girl, but Brandon tells her to be nice to Lucas because he has a lot riding on this meeting. He tells her that his department is hoping to get a chunk of money from the board. She agrees to be nice, but Lucas was lurking and suggests that she listen to Brandon. Lucas tells Sami that he can withhold money from Brandon's department unless she is willing to cooperate. She tells him that she won't kiss his butt, but he tells her she might have to. Later, the board meeting begins and Lucas explains that Mrs. Horton Victor Kirikas won't be able to attend. Sami arrives with a coffee tray and Lucas offers coffee to the rest of the board and orders Sami to pour it. He warns her what might happen to Brandon's money if she doesn't go along. Sami argues, but goes along and pours their coffee. Lucas is enjoying watching Sami squirm and he asks her for individual lumps of sugar and then some milk. He intentionally bumps her arm and makes her spill the milk, then yells at her for it. She tries to control her anger and keeps her cool and wipes up the table and Lucas then asks her for a muffin, saying she can call it a day after getting it. She brings the muffins over and goes to leave just as she overhears a board member commending Lucas for the email yesterday about all the money he allocated to Brandon's department! Sami is furious and approaches Lucas and chastises him for humiliating her. They go back to the nurses station and Lucas tells her he thinks they work well together and they should work together more often. Sami refuses to take orders from Lucas any more, and she swears that she will get him good! Brandon tries to break things up between them. When he learns what Lucas did for his program, he thanks Lucas. Lucas takes off, and Sami reams Brandon wondering how he can thank him. Brandon tells Sami that Lucas is not the one embarrassing her, she is doing that all on her own… In Marlena's office, she arrives just in time to meet with her new patient, Mr. Smith. He turns out to be John's ISA friend "OPS". Meanwhile, John shows up and Kelly tells him that Marlena is with a new patient. John tells her that he will wait for her to finish up. As he does, he notices a black briefcase on the chair in the waiting room and panics… Inside, OPS is talking to Marlena about how stressful his job is and how it is affecting his health. OPS says people at work make mistakes and then blame him because he is in charge of supplying his co-workers with equipment. Marlena is confused and says she really doesn't know how to proceed with therapy since she doesn't know what he does for a living. Suddenly, John bursts in and tells him that he doesn't want to answer that. Marlena is furious with John for bursting in, and by the looks John is giving OPS, she asks them if they know one another. OPS covers and shay he knows of him, everyone in town does. Marlena is interrupted by Kelly because one of her patients is on the phone. Marlena leaves, and John demands to know what OPS is up to. OPS says he was ordered to check out his wife. John is angry and OPS says that Shane said he would be but they need to know if Marlena knows John is ISA. Marlena then comes back and tells John that she already knows everything! Marlena says she has known for some time that he has been working for the ISA. She says she'll support him if this is something he feels passionate about. She just hopes it isn't a way to go after Tony. John says of course it is! OPS excuses himself so they can talk, and John tells Marlena that he feels Tony is taking over the family business. He then asks Marlena if she's okay with the fact that he's investigating the father of her children? She tells him to do what he has to do, and she will deal with the fallout if and when it comes. John has to call his ISA contact and assure him that security won't be breached by Marlena. John tells her he's only doing it to protect her and their family. Asking for a kiss from her favorite spy and makes light of the situation saying the safety of the free world depends on it. She smiles a little and agrees to do it for her country...

Shawn tells him he is there to return a book he left at the dorm. Rex hopes Shawn isn't mad at him for bailing on him. Shawn says he isn't. Shawn then asks Rex for some advice about Belle. Rex tells Shawn to take action before she hooks up with some other guy. Shawn thinks it is a little too soon for Belle to be dating again. Rex tells Shawn not to be so sure, and he tells him that she and Cassie are going to be contestants on that new show, "Love is Blind". Shawn doesn't seem happy and rushes out and Rex opens the box to find circuit boards galore in it. Later, Eliana knocks on his door and offers him breakfast. He refuses but asks in the future, she announce any of his guests. She apologizes and agrees. He pulls out a box and starts working on it. Later on, we see him check out a digital counter on the box, turn if off again and carefully puts it in his backpack… Over at Dot.Com, which has been turned into the TV studio, Belle, Mimi and Cassie are being beautified for the show. The producer shows up and gives them the low down on what is going to happen. Gabby encourages them to go crazy and wild, do whatever it takes to come out on top. She says after today, one person will be eliminated. She tells them that the two finalists will go on to have lunch dates with the hottie, and then he will make his decision. She also the hottie's face will be covered, so he can't see them and they can't see him. As they all begin arguing with one another, mainly over Cassie's outfit, Cassie notices the newspaper and reads that Chaz was arrested in a drug bust. She says this must be a mistake. Belle says that it is no shock to her that Cassie would be attracted to a criminal! Cassie warns Belle that she might end up in jail after all – for her murder! They soon begin to argue once again, and Mimi tries to break things up. The girls are then introduced to Randy, the director of the show. He tells them not to hold anything back once the cameras start rolling. He explains that the hottie will come through those doors and points to the doors and in comes Shawn. Belle makes a crack that she will forfeit but he comes over to her and begs her not to do this because he loves her. He says he knows she is mad at him, and doing this stupid dating show is no way to get back at him. Belle gets even angrier with Shawn, and she tells him that she will win this show! The show goes on the air, and Gabby introduces the three girls. She then brings in the mystery man, who is wearing a hat, a blindfold and a scarf over his face, as well as a sweat suit to cover up his physique. He talks through a microphone which alters his voice. The guy makes his choice, but we don't know what the choice was. Gabby tells the girls that they have to keep the choice secret until the next show. After the taping of the show, the girls do a photo shoot. Shawn continues to watch Belle, and he doesn't like how she is acting. During a break in the photo shoot, the host tells the three girls that next time the girl who lost will narrate the other two girl's dates with the mystery man, and it is her chance to be brutally honest about the other two. The photo shoot starts again, and the three girls begin to argue again. The photo shoot eventually winds down, but the arguing between Belle and Cassie keeps going. Shawn pulls Belle away from Cassie, and she lays into him! She tells him to stay out of her life, and walks off. Once alone, Shawn is hurt and knows they are in trouble. Then, Jordan, a girl from Salem U, sees Shawn and wonders if they can have a cup of coffee. He agrees and they head to the counter. Belle then comes back inside just in time to see Shawn and Jordan together and she can't figure out why she keeps pushing him away…and fade…moreless
Randy: You're welcome. Now, we're going to do a quick intro with the three of you, and then our mystery guy is going to make his entrance right through that door. (points at door just as Shawn walks in) Belle: Oh. Hey, wait a second. If that is our "mystery" guy - then I forfeit!
