PREVIEW: Marlena and Roman confide in each other; Rex plants his mysterious device; the dating game tears relationships apart. SUMMARY: At the hospital, Chloe tells Brady that Victor won't stop until she is out of his life, and that is what her dream was trying to tell her. He tells her that his grandfather has reservations against her, but he won't let him control him, but Chloe says he came between her and Philip. Brady is worried by this and reminds her that she is the one who broke things off with Philip, not Victor. Chloe agrees but says that Victor set the stage. Brady is unsettled by this and asks her what she means, does she wish she hadn't broke things off with Philip? Before she has a chance to answer, a nurse comes in to draw blood from Chloe. Brady asks if this can wait, but she says no it cannot. Chloe thinks something is wrong, but the nurse says everything is fine and explains that she is on a deadline because Dr. Wesley just has a rush on them. Brady returns after the nurse takes Chloe's blood. He wants to continue their discussion, but she doesn't. He says it is important and Chloe tells Brady that he doesn't understand how his grandfather feels about her. He says he does, and when she was with Philip, Victor didn't see her as daughter-in-law material, and he was right. She asks him what he is saying? Brady explains that Victor knew she and Philip weren't right for each other, but the two of them should think about maybe talking about getting married in the near future and he kisses her forehead. He tells her like it or not she is stuck with him. Later, he congratulates her on eating all her dinner. She wants dessert but he says that was the Jell-O. She is disappointed and he promises her whipped cream and chocolate sauce after she gets out of the hospital. He tells her he loves her and she falls asleep on his shoulder… Rex is wandering the underground tunnels of Salem with a flashlight and Stefano's map looking for coal. Eureka! He found it. Meanwhile Belle, Mimi, and Gabby head to the DiMera Mansion to pick up Cassie for the next taping. Cassie tells Mimi and Belle that they both look like losers in those outfits. Cassie tells Mimi to go upstairs and look in her closet to find something decent to wear. Mimi says she likes what she has on, and Belle says that Mimi looks beautiful. Tony shows up and is furious with them for arguing in his home. Suddenly, Shawn comes around the corner and asks to speak to Belle. She agrees and they head outside. Tony speaks with Gabby, who tries to come onto him. Tony says he's a very busy man, and they eventually leave. Meanwhile, Shawn and Belle are talking outside. Shawn tells her that he misses her, and says that they belong together. He says he knows that, and he thinks she does, too. He tells her that he is ready to change, and he asks her if she is ready to try and stop being so disappointed in him. Mimi, Cassie and Gabby walk past them outside and are telling Belle they have to go. Shawn is pushing Belle for an answer, they are yelling at Belle from the car that they have to get going. Belle runs off without answering Shawn… Later, after the taping is over, it's now dark out and they return to the DiMera mansion. Mimi comments that she loves the spotlight and Cassie asks her if she was leading her brother on? Mimi tells her no, but it is hard to make a relationship work when the guy keeps shutting her out. Rex and Shawn come in and Gabby comments that she likes what she sees in Rex. She asks him to be on the next show of "Love is Blind", which makes Mimi jealous. Rex isn't sure but excuses himself and heads upstairs. Mimi is unsettled and follows him upstairs and asks him why he is pushing her away. Mimi goes on about how great their kiss was, citing Hollywood couples as an example. Rex makes it clear he doesn't want to talk to her and closes the door in her face, and she ends up walking off. Rex then sneaks back out with a big duffle bag… Meanwhile, back downstairs, Shawn has pulled Belle aside and asks her to quit the show now. Belle doesn't want to bail this late in the show and says the "hunk" seems nice. She also says she signed a contract. Shawn tells her that he loves her, and he knows she loves him. He tells her he loves her body, mind and soul and she has him repeat it again. He says that he loves every thing about her, even that she's a perfectionist and knowing he's not perfect. All he can do is promise never to make that mistake again. Belle is touched and tells him that there is something she needs to tell him about the show. She tells him that she purposely did things to try to turn the hunk "off" because he is the only guy she wants. Shawn kisses her passionately. Belle tells Shawn that she wants to get back together, but it has to be different this time… Meanwhile, back in the foyer, Gabby is talking to Cassie about convincing Rex to do the next show. Cassie then offers to help Gabby find two other hunks on campus for the next show. Gabby seems pleased with this idea. A furious Mimi comes downstairs and vows to forget Rex and put all her energy into the show and where it will lead her… Rex returns to the tunnels and sets up his project, which looks almost like some hi-tech gun… At the gym, Marlena runs into Roman. She came looking for him because she needs a favor. He says he will help and she tells him she needs a bug sweeper! Roman asks if someone is spying on one of her clients? She says no, on her. She explains that John bugged her and she is upset that no one is giving Tony a chance to prove himself. She thinks fatherhood has changed him and it is unfair that John won't give him a chance. Roman says he understands why she would be upset, but he also understands where John is coming from. Marlena defends Tony because she thinks he is a changed man. Marlena then says all she wants is peace between her family and the DiMera's. She says she is tired of being spied on, and she asks Roman to help her… Meanwhile, over at Basic Black, John is meeting with Ops and they talk about how to get the goods on Tony. Ops has put a report together for John on all of Tony's companies. As John looks through the report he is shocked to learn that Tony now owns Echelon. He knows that is not Tony's cup of tea and he must be up to something. John thanks Ops and as they talk about their next step, we see Kate impatiently waiting in the lobby for John to finish his "meeting". She answers the phone and it is Tony – calling to ask her out to Tuscany for dinner. Kate agrees and Marlena has arrived just in time to hear Kate agreeing to meet Tony for dinner. Kate hangs up and Marlena admits that she overheard her making plans with Tony and asks about Roman, but Kate tells her they're over. Just then, Ops and John walk out of John's office and John apologizes to the "courier" for taking so long. Ops plays along and leaves. Kate gives John some paperwork to review. She asks if she can leave early, she has a dinner date. He tells her that's fine and she leaves. Marlena asks John if it gets easier to lie to people. He tells her if it's for the greater good. The two make dinner plans and Marlena suggests Tuscany, but wants to stop home to change first… At Tuscany, John and Marlena arrive and are seated just as they see Tony come in with Kate. John asks Marlena if she knew they would be here and if that is why she suggested Tuscany? Later, Maggie herself clears John and Marlena's plates, noting they hardly ate anything. John reminds her she hasn't answered his question. Marlena changes the subject and comments that she likes the food there, even though they didn't eat much. Coatless, Tony returns to his table and tells Kate everything's been arranged. Unsure if she's ready for the next move, he convinces her to live dangerously and takes her hand and pulls her to the dance floor. The two dance a very sexy tango in the middle of Tuscany and everyone watches. John and Marlena are more than shocked, and they see Tony seductively strokes Kate's arm as they continue their performance. Just then, Roman shows up and is furious! Marlena spots Roman and excuses herself and she tells him he should just talk to her, but he says he only came here to give her the bug sweeper, and he shows her how to use it. She thanks him and tells him that Kate really does love him. Roman declines and walks off and Kate and Tony continue dancing. Tony tries to kiss her, but she pulls away. Marlena returns to John, and she apologizes to him and says that she hates fighting with him. Meanwhile, Kate thanks Tony for the dinner and the dance, but it can't happen again because she is in love with someone else. Tony offers to walk her to her car, but she tells him she will be fine and heads out the front door. Bart comes in and tells Tony he has the address he wanted and they head out back to the limo… Outside in the parking lot, Kate goes to give her parking ticket to the valet, Roman interrupts and says she will be going with him. She asks him what he wants? Roman says he wants to settle things once and for all. She refuses, but the tells her he could always handcuff her again and she reluctantly agrees… Elsewhere, Tony knocks on a door and out walks a beautiful blonde dressed in very sexy negligee. She hands him a drink, they kiss and they go inside… John and Marlena return to the penthouse, and he comments that she is being so quiet. She tells him that she isn't sure about his secret life. If they can keep talking they'll be okay. They agree it's a good time for the making up part and they begin kissing. They get very passionate and her purse gets accidentally knocked to the floor and the bug sweeper spills out. He picks it up and asks her what is this?…moreless
