Ep. #9675
AIRED:
Cassie gets her brother to admit that he has no memory of where he went last night; Rex then makes an unexpected, seemingly sinister visit to Marlena in her office; John and Shawn put Belle on a plane to Italy. At the pub, John meets with Shawn to discuss his plan to keeping Belle safe. John says he needs Shawn's help to convince Belle to live Salem. Meanwhile, Belle arrives at MArlena's office, and she has not slept. Marlena tells her that she needs to make sure she sleeps and eat properly to maintain a sense of equilibrium. Belle says she is too upset to eat or sleep because both her dad and her are possible targets. Belle says her dad has already challenged the killer, and she says the killer knows she is helping Maggie with her memories, so that makes her a possible target. Belle doesn't want to hear her mom says she will be all right because she can't guarantee that. Belle tells her mom that she's afraid Rex could be the killer and that she may lose someone she loves. Marlena tells Belle that she has to have faith that her dad and Roman will solve this crime. Belle just wonders how many more people have to die first. She says she could bear to lose her, dad or Shawn. Marlena's phone rings and it turns out it is Shawn calling for Belle. Shawn asks Belle to meet him because he has some news that could change her life forever. Back at the pub, John asks Belle to help him with a fashion project in Milan, which involves a big wig designer. She is stunned and asks why her? John says Kate can't leave town right now, and she proved herself with the fashion show for Basic Black. Belle is not sure because this is an important assignment, and she says she can't do this. John tells her that he really needs her help doing this, and with Shawn's help, they convince her to go to Milan. John thanks her, and after he leaves, Belle tells Shawn that she knows exactly what is going on here. She knows she is being railroaded and sent out of town because of the serial killer. Shawn admits that is what is going on, but he says her dad wouldn't trust her with this assignment if he didn't think she couldn't do it. Shawn says they just don't want to see her get hurt. Belle doesn't want to go anymore now that she knows it is all a ruse. Shawn begs her to just go to Italy and give her dad some peace of mind. Belle is worried if she goes that Shawn will go after the killer. She asks what she can do to stop him from investigating, but he says there is nothing she can say to stop him because this is who he is. He asks her to please go to Milan for him. Belle comes to a decision and says she will go to Milan. He says she is doing the right thing, and he says the jet is ready now so they have to say goodbye. The limo pulls up to the pub, and Belle and Shawn share an emotional goodbye. Shawn promises to email Belle every day. Belle tells Shawn that she loves him, and he tells her that he'll love her forever. He also tells her not to worry. At the station, Phillip shows up and tells Bo and Hope that he thinks Rex is the killer. Phillip tells Bo and Hope about tailing Rex to each of the crime scenes. Hope asks why he didn't report this right away. Phillip says Mimi and Cassie asked him not to, but he realized he had to. He says after Rex went to the crime scenes he suddenly disappeared and no one could find him. Phillip begs them to arrest Rex, but Hope says this isn't enough evidence to do so. Rex asks them to trump up some charges, but Bo says they can't do that because they are under close scrutiny. Bo suggests Phillip just sticks close to Cassie and see if he can find anything out. Later, Bo and Hope continue to work on the case. At Rex's place, Cassie shows up to check on Rex. She asks him where he disappeared to yesterday and what has he been up to? She says he looks horrible, and wonders if he is hung over. Cassie continues to question him where he went yesterday? He asks what is with all the questions. Cassie tells him that they followed him to the crime scenes yesterday, which he is not happy about. He wonders whose side she is on. Cassie tells Rex that she loves him and is on his side of course, but she is worried about him. She recounts all the evidence she knows about against him, and she begs Rex to tell her the truth. She asks why he went to the crime scenes yesterday. Rex says he doesn't know and he doesn't remember anything he did after he left her and the others. Cassie is worried about him, and he ends up flying into a rage. He grabs a baseball bat and says if Shawn or Phillip come after him than they will regret it. He then begins trashing his apartment. Cassie screams at him to stop it, and he grabs her! Rex regains himself and can't believe what he has done. She cries that she thought he was going to kill her. HE says NEVER! He says he is so sorry. Cassie wonders what is happening to him. She fears this could be part of Stefano's plan for him, and she worries that he might be programmed to kill. Cassie thinks they should tell MArlena and Tony the truth because they may be able to help him, but Rex tells her no way! Later, Rex reads the news paper story about the attack on Maggie, and how MArlena is working with Maggie to name the killer. Rex decides it is time to pay MArlena a visit. Rex takes off, and says he needs to take care of MArlena once and for all. Cassie wonders if she should call MArlena and warn her, but then she realizes she doesn't know what Rex is up to. Phillip shows up to see Cassie, he learned from the mansion that she was here, and he is stunned to see the place is a mess. He wonders if Rex did this. She asks him not to tell anyone about what they saw Rex doing, but he says he already told the police. Cassie asks how he could do this to Rex? Phillip realizes that Cassie thinks Rex is the killer. Cassie says she doesn't think he is the killer, but what he has done has made things worse for Rex. Cassie asks Phillip to just back off Rex because he is innocent. Phillip tells Cassie the problem is she isn't really sure he is innocent. Back at Marlena's office, John tells Marlena that with Shawn's help he has gotten Belle to agree to leave town. MArlena is relieved, and then she begins to talk to John about Rex's polygraph test. She thinks it is a good sign that Rex has nothing to hide, but she also knows that John probably thinks he manipulated the test results. John tells Marlena that there is something she needs to know about the test results. John tells Marlena that there is a possibility that Cassie and Rex are not her and Tony's children after all. He tells Marlena how Rex missed the question about his parents. Marlena says perhaps there was a glitch in the machine, or perhaps it was just an emotional reaction because he resents that they didn't raise him and Cassie. MArlena says she remembers giving birth to the twins, but John says it is possible she was just a surrogate. Marlena says she has a link with them, but John says she has an emotional link but possible not a biological link. He reminds her that they have never been able to confirm the twins are biologically her and Tony's kids. Marlena is devastated and damns Stefano for once again playing with their lives. Marlena asks if anyone has spoken to Rex about this? John says not yet. Marlena asks if the test results have been analyzed carefully, but John says no because the test results are missing. He says he thinks Tony stole them, but has no proof. However, when questioned about the twins he says Tony became very defensive that the twins are his children. Marlena wonders if the twins aren't hers and Tony's, than whose are they? John doesn't know, but he does think that the twins may have been programmed and sent her for a purpose. As they discuss Rex's headaches and behaviors, Rex shows up and hears MArlena ask John if he is saying that Rex is the killer? John says it is possible that Rex is a new generation of DiMera mercenaries genetically programmed to kill. Marlena is glad Belle is leaving Salem, but she is worried about John. John says he is worried about her because she was the object of Stefano's desires for years. He also thinks she should stop her sessions with Maggie. Marlena says she can't do that because Maggie needs her. John is beeped, and he says needs to get back to work. He kisses her before he leaves. Later, Marlena is alone and on her couch when Rex walks up behind her! In his hands he has a rope, and it appears that he is going to strangle her!moreless
