    Episode 246
    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

    PREVIEW: When the clock strikes 12, Celeste's premonition comes true and Abe is shot! SUMMARY: At Salem Place, Roman tells Kate that he has something special to ask her later. She smiles and asks what he has to ask her, but he tells her he can't say it right now. He says after the Christening he has to meet Abe, but once he's done that probably after that he will take her to dinner and ask her the question later. Kate then remembers she has something to do. She tells him she'll meet him at the church. She then tells him she loves him and he repeats back he loves her too. Kate starts to look worried and Roman asks is she all right? She smiles and just says that ceremonies make her upset. Later Sami breaks into the guards box and steals the guard's gun. She then mentions that Abe has crossed the line! Meanwhile at the Kirakis mansion, Brady asks Nico where are Victor and Nicole? Nico just replies he doesn't know. Now they show Victor, who has a gun now, saying he's tired of his wife's messes. Somewhere Tony is still refusing to let Abe pin the Bo and Hope attack on him. He has a gun, so does Rex. At the church Lexie announces that Abe will be just fine. Still worried she knows he'll be fine. At Jack and Jennifer's place, Jack leaves around twelve and at the Carvers (flashback) we hear a shot and Abe grabs his gun and walks outside and then we see Abe lying in a pool of blood. Outside in the woods, Tony is talking to Stefano on the phone saying what they discussed earlier was taken care of. We then see Abe lying in a pool of blood. Back at church, Rex has another one of his headaches and drops his gun. He hits a pot, knocking the pot over, and has Caroline running over to him checking on him. He says he's fine, but has a headache and needs something to drink. Caroline leaves to get him something to drink and Rex picks up the gun. Later Jack tells Jen that it is getting late and he heard a gun shot when the clock had struck twelve. Shawn is still suspicious of Rex. He tells this to Belle and she's tired (of the subject) thinks they should talk about something else. They later sneak into the bride's room and fool around. Back at Salem Place Sami goes back to put the gun back, but as she does a guard catches her! Summary contributed by: Answer Girlmoreless

Rex is horrified and disgusted to think that Cassie has slept with their half-brother, and struggles to get Cassie on her own. Once an exasperated Lucas finally leaves, Rex tells Cassie that she just slept with their half-brother! Cassie is shocked to learn that Kate Roberts is their mother, but admits to Rex that she and Lucas didn't sleep together. Rex swears Cassie to secrecy, and she tears out of the hotel room. Back at the apartment, Sami is furious that Lucas stood her up, and doesn't believe his explanations that Will didn't tell him about the dinner. Lucas tells her that it's none of her business who he dates, and suddenly, Cassie is at the door. Sami is initially furious to see Lucas's new 'girlfriend' at her home, until Cassie tells Lucas that his touch makes her sick and she never wants to see him again. Shawn and Belle meet Philip at the pub, and demand to know what he's up to. He tries to cover, but eventually is forced to admit that he's investigating Tony DiMera. Shawn is furious...Philip's extracurricular activities could have gotten Belle seriously hurt! Belle is less than thrilled to be considered unable to protect herself, and storms out. Alone, Philip and Shawn continue to talk. Shawn agrees to investigate Maya for Philip, but only reluctantly agrees to keep the truth from Shawn. When Brady offers Belle his old loft, she eagerly invites Philip and Shawn over to see her new place, but Philip is uncomfortable watching Shawn and Belle get romantic. Roman and Kate are on a date at the Brady pub, talking about their children. Kate admits that she's not thrilled with Lucas dating Cassie, but anything would be better than him dating Sami. Roman reminds her that Sami is his daugther, and that she isn't the only one responsible for the problems between her and Lucas. They agree not to discuss their children anymore. Victor and Brady are suspicious when they catch Nicole looking for bullets. Larry is getting tired of all this waiting, and goes out to get his own bullets. When he and Nicole meet up later, they decide to kill Victor that same night. Summary by IGotBluemoreless

    PREVIEW: Cassie seduces Lucas; Tony gives Sami a lavish gift; Nicole buys a gun to have Victor killed. SUMMARY: At the DiMera mansion, Bart packs up Rex's laser, and Rex walks in on Tony with the mysterious vial of goop. Tony doesn't tell him what it is, but assures him that he trusts him because he is his son. Rex wonders if that is the only reason why. Rex realizes that very soon, he will be in on every level of the DiMera family business… In the living room at the DiMera mansion, Lucas has another daydream about Sami – that she is able to speak again. She comes onto him and asks him where his voice is. Cassie comes in, and he loses his concentration and she asks him if he is thinking about Sami again. Trying to cover, he kisses her. She responds as Tony comes downstairs and almost catches them, as Rex warns Cassie to stay away from "coma-boy"... Meanwhile, John tells Philip that they're waiting for the test results on the substance Philip found on the ship. Tek arrives and tells John about Tony's plans: He is taking a mysterious cruise on his yacht to South America, and that just happens to be where the cargo ship is also headed. John decides that he needs to follow Tony. He goes to Marlena's office to tell her he is going. Back at the DiMera mansion, Tony prepares to leave and he tells Bart to keep an eye on Lucas and he privately tells Lucas to keep an eye on Cassie… Once Tony is gone, Cassie comes onto Lucas again – very hot and heavy. They share a few drinks and Lucas can no longer resist her. They are headed out the door presumably to find a private place to have sex… Meanwhile, John stows away on Tony's yacht and sneaks into one of the rooms without being seen... Earlier, Marlena brings Sami home from the hospital. She wonders if Sami is hungry and tells her she will bring her dinner, but Sami writes down that she will be having dinner with Will and Lucas. Marlena is unsettled by this news, as she blames Lucas for the accident. Sami tells her she is tired and Marlena leaves so she can rest. Once Sami is alone, Tony comes by to see Sami, who is at first reluctant to let him in. She eventually lets him in and is taken aback when he gives her a diamond necklace. He hopes this will soften Sami's heart. He tells her that he is going away and when he returns, he wants Sami to be fully recovered, and able to speak the words: "I forgive you." Sami is affected… Over at the Kirikas mansion, Brady, Victor and Nicole are having breakfast together. Nicole freaks out when she sees Larry walking around outside – just as Brady reads that Larry Welch "died" in a car accident. Nicole is uncomfortable and tells Victor it is time for her ride, Nicole goes outside to find Larry, who demands that she feed him. Nicole tells him that she has something better...the cash to buy a gun. He tells her he can't do it, remember, he's dead… Meanwhile, Brady is inside singing Victor's praises until he agrees to let Nicole to work at the Blue Note. Brady is excited and cannot wait to find Nicole to tell her the good news. He goes outside, just to see him driving off. Next, we see Nicole in an alley approaching a guy to purchase a gun. We then see Brady peering around the corner wondering what Nicole is doing…moreless

    PREVIEW: Bo and Hope attempt to escape; Lucas confesses his love for Sami. SUMMARY: At the hospital, Kate and Roman come to visit Sami and interrupt her and Lucas as they hug. Kate takes Lucas outside, and demands to know if he's falling in love with Sami? Lucas tells his mother that is crazy and there is no way. He claims he feels for her because she is Will's mother. Inside, Roman isn't sure what to think either by Sami's sudden change in attitude toward Lucas. Roman and Kate decide to leave so Sami can rest and Lucas comes back inside and blasts Sami and tells him to stop playing whatever game she's playing. She is hurt by this and he storms out. A little later, Lucas is a little uneasy by what he said to her and returns to her room. Lucas tells Sami he is sorry and that he loves her and they start kissing. They begin to undress each other and it looks very much like they will make love. It turns out that Lucas was daydreaming all of those events! He is actually standing outside of her room, but he leaves, still upset, without saying anything to her… Over at the Blue Note, Shawn tells Belle that he, too, was on the ship and he saw her and Philip. He tells her that the only reason he invited Maya out was to get her off of the ship so that Belle and Philip would not be noticed. Belle is relieved by this news, but Shawn tells her she has to tell him what she and Philip were up to. After a lot of dancing around the subject, she finally tells Shawn that Philip does have a secret – but it is his secret and she can't tell him. Shawn tells Belle that he understands, and she tells him that she has the best boyfriend in the world… In other areas of the Blue Note, Brady and Nicole are there and she is blasting Brady telling him that the atmosphere really needs a change. Before Brady gets a chance to question her, Larry calls her cell phone and tells him she still needs to get him a gun. She tells him she will take care of it, and Brady happens to overhear part of the conversation. He wonders who she is talking to and wonders what she meant by "it will kill Victor", but she covers, claiming she was talking to a contractor. She says that if the work isn't done right, it will kill Victor. She manages to change the subject quickly and they start talking about the Blue Note again. She gives him some ideas about the food, the music, the drinks, etc. Impressed by Nicole's ideas, Brady offers her a job as a manager. Nicole is thrilled but says no because Victor will never let her. Brady tells her he will take care of that and tells her he is sure he can get Victor to agree, Nicole accepts the offer. She then asks him for a $200 advance, of which he gives her... Kate and Roman also show up at the Blue Note after leaving the hospital. Roman tells Kate he doesn't want her son, Tony's lackey, anywhere near Sami. Kate takes offense to this, saying Sami is no saint either. Both agree to table the discussion and move on to kissing and are heading back to Roman's place… Meanwhile, Jesse and his two guys have left Bo and Hope chained to the chair with the car exhaust beating down on their faces. The two of them work brilliantly together and manage to wiggle out, and then they use some motor oil to slip out of the cuffs around their wrists. They are free and head outside for fresh air. Just as they get out, Hope is breathing nice clean air, and Bo notices that they have taken their brand new SUV. Now, Bo and Hope are out for blood…moreless

    PREVIEW: Things heat up between Shawn and Maya; Cassie unveils big news to John. SUMMARY: At the Kirikas mansion, Nicole is trying desperately to come up with a cover story for Brady about why she was in his shower and she ends up telling him that she got covered in mud when she was out in the stables earlier. She can tell that Brady is hesitant to buy that story, so she drops her towel, hoping that he will look at her all naked and that would distract him. To her surprise, Brady gently tells her that she should not be using her body when she has so much more to offer. She scrambles around and eventually takes off out of Brady's bathroom so he can enjoy a peaceful shower. She hurries out to the stables to see Larry, who is angry with her for leaving him there with no food and he tells her he will take off and not do her dirty work. He makes it known that there is one thing she can do that just might change his mind. Nicole remembers back to what Brady said to her upstairs and she puts him back in line. Larry agrees to go through with it, but she better hurry! Nicole heads back inside and up to Brady's bathroom and she apologizes to him for her behavior earlier and tells him that she acts that way because she's bored. Brady is confused by this and asks her to leave so he can get dressed to go to work at the Blue Note. Nicole hears this and she begs him to take her along. She then realizes there is no way Victor would let her go and tells Brady this. Brady notices the desperation in her voice and tells her he will see what he can do… Back on the ship, Maya's henchmen threaten Philip and Belle's lives. Philip is pretty calm about the mess they are in and this scares Belle a little. Philip uses a tear gas to distract the men so they can get away, but the men still follow them. Phillip and the men strike a fight and Belle ends up injured. Philip is angry that Belle was hurt and is fighting for his own life just as Belle comes to. She thinks quickly and uses a cargo hook to knock out the guy Philip was fighting with. They get away and are searching for a way to get off the ship. They find a safe haven for the moment, but hear the guys coming and Philip points out that the only way off the ship is by jumping through a porthole and swimming to shore. Belle looks at him and he tells her that, once again, she is going to have to take off her clothes… Over at the Brady Pub, Shawn meets Maya and isn't sure what to think when she suggests they go someplace more private. He covers his fidgeting by telling her that he is afraid of who might see them together, including, Belle's father, who just came in. He tells her that he wouldn't want Belle to find out about Maya from her father before he's had a chance to tell her on his own. They decide to leave and is stopped by John. He dodges as many questions as possible and tells John that Maya is strictly a client and it's all business. Tony pulls Maya aside and they have a heated conversation about the diamond shipment being ready to go. Shawn and Maya leave and end up going to the Blue Note and when Shawn has a minute alone, he calls and leaves a message for Belle and is caught by Maya. He covers and tells her that he owes Belle an explanation. Shawn is soon distracted and forgets about Belle when Maya licks chocolate off his fingers… Meanwhile, back at the Brady Pub, John confronts Tony about Maya. Tony covers smoothly and tells John he is associating with her because of the antiquities… Over at the DiMera mansion, Rex is still upset that his tests revealed that he is not really a DiMera. It is obvious that him being a DiMera means everything to him. Mimi comes by and drops off a CD that she downloaded all of the data from the hospital computers that he asked her to and tells him hopefully they will find out who his mother is. Tony manages to catch Rex and tells him and Lucas both that Maya is double-crossing him, forcing him to speed up the process of creating the fake diamonds. He tells them that he will personally transport Rex's laser to South America. Tony tells Rex once again how proud he is of him… Also at the DiMera mansion, Lucas pulls away from Cassie after he learns that she is willing to sleep with him. Lucas tells her it can never happen and Cassie leaves. Hurt by Lucas, Cassie goes to the Brady Pub and gets drunk and picks up a man and they are headed out the door when John stops them. He tells the guy he cannot take advantage of her. The guy takes off and Cassie blasts John for that and when he tells her that her mother would be very disappointed, she blurts out that Marlena is not her mother!moreless

SUMMARY: At Jack and Jennifer's, they are getting ready to go live and find out that their guest has cancelled. Jack rushes out and leaves Jennifer alone to open the show. She is not sure what to do or to talk about and tries to get Barry to come on the air with her, but he refuses. Just then, Jack returns, he has gotten Nobu, a sushi chef from down the street, to guest on the show. Nobu makes some sushi for them to sample and Jennifer is wary of eating the uncooked fish. She mentions that she read somewhere that pregnant women should not eat raw fish – and this news almost makes Jack nearly choke on his sushi. Barry right away assumes that she is telling everyone that she is pregnant, but she assures him – and Jack – that she is not pregnant. Jack seems to breathe a sigh a relief. They thank Nobu for coming by and he leaves and Jennifer takes the opportunity to demonstrate a few self-defense moves – and manages to wrestle Jack to the floor and she takes him into a very passionate kiss… Over at the hospital, Sami is asleep and has a dream about Lucas confessing his love to her and she suddenly awakes, really freaked out. Imagine her surprise when she opens her eyes and looks around the room and sees Lucas sitting in a chair reading a book. She hurries up and closes her eyes so it looks like she's sleeping before he sees her. Tony comes into the room and he and Lucas have a long conversation about how guilty Tony feels for Sami's accident and how Tony can't believe that Lucas is sitting there with her. Lucas assures him that he is there for Will's sake only – since Sami is his mother. The more they talk, the angrier Sami gets and she clenches the sheets with her fists. Lucas eventually leaves and Sami finally opens her eyes and sees Tony. Tony gets the nurse and then tries to leave. Sami motions to the nurse to get him to stay and she writes him a message on her message board, "go to hell!"… After leaving the hospital, Lucas goes to the DiMera mansion where he finds Rex and Cassie coming home and Lucas asks Cassie what happened. She tells him she was arrested and cries on his shoulder. Just then, Tony comes home and asks what is going on and Cassie tells him that she was arrested for prostitution. Cassie heads upstairs to rest as do Rex and Mimi, who has just come by to visit Rex. Once alone, Tony learns from Lucas that Maya has been playing him. Tony realizes that he will need more diamonds, so he heads upstairs and interrupts Rex and Mimi preparing to make love. Mimi takes the queue to leave and goes downstairs for a drink. Once alone, Tony asks Rex to go into business with him. Rex quickly agrees and tells Tony he would be happy to, "father". It is quite clear that Rex wants to be a DiMera. Tony leaves and Mimi returns. Rex tells Mimi everything and they start to make love. Meanwhile, back downstairs, Cassie comes back down and turns to Lucas to help her forget what happened the night before. They start to make out and are almost caught by Tony, but manage to cover. Tony tells Rex he will take care of business and he leaves. Cassie starts to kiss Lucas again and he responds, but they are interrupted when his cell phone rings – it's the hospital, they are calling for Sami, she needs to see him. Lucas quickly takes off, leaving behind a hurt Cassie... Meanwhile, across town, Nicole is walking down the street, dressed in disguise, and manages to get Larry's police escorts out of the car by pretending to be injured. While she distracts them, Russell goes to the car and cuts Larry's handcuffs and lets him out of the car. Nicole pretends to still be hurt when the police car suddenly blows up and is on fire. She acts really surprised and the policeman go to check it out, wondering how they are going to explain this. They think the "woman" will help with the explanation, but when they turn to her, she is gone. A little later, we see Russell driving a car with Larry and Nicole safely in the backseat and Larry kisses Nicole's neck – as he promises to kill Victor for her… Over at the police station, Bo is talking to one of the guards and he tells Bo that Vin Ramsell made a deal with the DA for a reduced sentence. This angers Bo and he pays a visit to Vin in his cell and Vin makes it clear that he is not afraid of Bo… Meanwhile, Hope is visiting Alice and is telling her about having to sell the Fancy Face to fund her and Bo's new business in bounty hunting. Hope tells her that she doesn't want to sell the boat and thinks that maybe she might withdraw the interest off her trust fund until Alice tells her that due to the economy; Hope's trust fund is not what it once was. Upset by this news, Hope realizes that the only way is to sell the boat. Alice tells her that she would like to help and tells Hope that she can lend them the money they need. Hope appreciates Alice's support, but tells her she cannot take her money. A little later, Bo comes by Alice's house and Hope tells him about her talk with Alice – including the part about the money not being in her trust fund. And since they don't have much in savings, they will have to sell the boat. Suddenly, Bo's cell phone rings – it's Vin. Bo asks him what he wants and Vin tells him "your life"… Bo is not threatened by Vin, but doesn't tell Hope what he said exactly. Bo assures Hope that they'll survive... and he'll keep his family safe from Vin… Over at the Brady Pub, Belle is sitting at the bar, still suspicious of Philip. He takes a phone call and Belle overhears him mention pier 32 to the caller. Philip abruptly takes off and Belle is even more suspicious and she tells Shawn that she believes Philip is still up to something – she just doesn't know what.

    PREVIEW: Marlena finds Cassie behind bars; Shawn confronts a half-clothed Belle; Brady almost finds Rolf's body! SUMMARY: At the Kirikas mansion after Shawn catches Belle and Philip coming out of the closet, half dressed, Belle does her best to explain what happened. Shawn doesn't say anything, he just walks out the front door. Belle is worried that Shawn is really angry at her and she instructs Philip to find her something so she can go after him. Philip is headed upstairs just as Shawn comes back in with his jacket. He tells Belle that he understands and tells Belle that he trusts her. Just then, they run into Maya, who is a little too excited to see Shawn. Shawn makes sure that he makes a point of letting Maya know that Belle is his girlfriend just as Belle discovers that Maya is hot for Shawn. Once they have split up, Shawn and Belle go outside and decide to take a dip in the pool to cool down. The two are kissing and flirting around. Once Shawn jumps in, he loses his shorts and they spend time looking for them… Meanwhile, back inside the house, Maya questions Philip about Shawn and Belle. Philip is distracted by watching Shawn and Belle in the pool through the window and assumes that Philip has the hots for Belle, much in the same way she has the hots for Shawn. Then Maya propositions Philip – she tells him that she wants Shawn, and she knows that he wants Belle and that maybe they can be of assistance to each other. She has this idea that maybe they should join Shawn and Belle for a skinny-dip in the pool and she heads outside. Belle is very clear that they are not welcome and that they are going to call it a night. Philip also tells Maya he will not be a part of her plan. Once Maya is gone, Philip calls Tek and says the mission will work, but he may have to use his best friend to get closer to Maya… In other areas of the Kirikas grounds, Brady follows Nicole into the stables and questions her about what she's been hiding. She doesn't admit anything and Brady tells her he will search the stables until he finds whatever it is that she is hiding. Desperate to keep Brady from finding Rolf's body, she pretends to open up about her life. She plays the victim saying that the stables are the only place she feels free and that's why she's been spending so much time out there. Brady starts to understand what is going on in her head. They agree to call a truce since they will be living under the same roof and decide to shake on it. Inside, Henderson was unable to find Nicole for Victor, so he goes looking for her himself and finds her seemingly holding hands with Brady and demands to know what is going on. He insists that she tell him why her dress is soaked? Brady quickly responds and he covers for Nicole by saying that Nicole fell in the pool and then they went to the stables to talk over the arrangement that Brady will be living with them now. Nicole is obviously surprised that Brady didn't rat her out to Brady and is grateful to him. Victor tells her to get back into the house and change into some dry clothes to wish the remaining guests a good night. Nicole heads back inside and is relieved that nobody found the body…yet… Over at the police station, Marlena gets there, sees Roman and cannot believe that her daughter has been arrested for prostitution. Cassie insists that this is all a big misunderstanding. She tells him that he has no idea who she is dealing with – her name is DiMera! Roman comforts Marlena as Cassie insists that she get her one phone call. Marlena and Roman assume she is calling Tony and Marlena tells her she would like to speak to him as well. Cassie tells her she is not calling Tony… Over at the DiMera mansion, Mimi and Rex have returned to Rex's room and are getting hot and heavy again, both floating on clouds, as they cannot believe the feeling they both have. They are talking about the fact that Rex hates Roman Brady. He tells Mimi no body can ever know the truth because he would rather be a DiMera. Mimi asks Rex a difficult question: doesn't Cassie deserve to know Roman is her father? This obviously gets to Rex in a way he wasn't ready to think about. He doesn't have a chance to say anything else because the phone rings. It's Cassie – she's called Rex because she knows that Tony would be angry… Once Rex and Mimi arrive at the police station, he insists on time alone with his sister. Roman sends them into Abe's office and he decides to come clean with Cassie and tell her everything. He tells her that Roman Brady is their biological father. Cassie is absolutely beside herself – she doesn't know what to say or what to think. Rex tries to comfort her… Meanwhile, Mimi is outside talking to Roman and Marlena and almost spills the beans to them, but covers her story quickly. A policeman comes in and says the judge is out sick so Cassie cannot be arraigned until the morning. As much as it hurts Roman to tell Marlena this, he tells her that he has to follow the letter of the law – he will have to lock Cassie up overnight. This makes Rex even more furious, because Cassie has a phobia about being locked up – since they were locked up for most of their childhood. Marlena is also upset and Roman tells them he is sorry. Later, we see Cassie in the jail cells, as the bars close, she remembers all the time she spent locked up as a child and lays on her cot and cries…moreless

After the three of them talk it over, Shawn realizes it is for the best and tells them he is OK with it. Shawn takes off and Bo and Hope relive some more memories in an emotional montage. They head back downstairs to make love again… Mimi and Rex are in the afterglow of having made love for the first time. Mimi is in heaven, especially when Rex tells her that he is in love with her. Mimi can hardly contain herself and tells him that she loves him too. Rex continues to woo Mimi by telling her everything that he loves about her – and Mimi is just loving it up! She tells him she is the luckiest girl in the world! The two are hungry, so they head to the Brady Pub for some dinner, but are having trouble keeping their feelings to themselves… Belle is outside of the Kiriakis mansion waiting for Philip to arrive just as Philip coordinates with John and Tek in a van. They have equipped Philip with a microphone and a camera so they can keep in touch. Philip mentions Belle is waiting for him and John is not too pleased that he has gotten his daughter in the middle of this. Philip assures John she will be OK and he takes off… Still waiting for Philip, Belle sees Cassie and Tony approach the front door to the mansion. Cassie cannot believe Belle's nerve she has for openly "dating Philip" while she and Shawn are going out. Belle tells her that they're just friends, but Cassie is convinced that Belle is leading Shawn on. They go inside and Cassie vows to teach Belle a lesson… Once inside the party, Philip spots his target talking to Tony and Philip asks Belle to distract Tony. Belle hesitates but agrees and Maya walks off and Philip follows her into Victor's study, but Victor gets there before Philip has a chance to approach her. Victor warns Maya that she wants to stay clear of Tony. As he leaves, he sees Philip and wonders what he is doing, but Philip covers saying the guests wonder what happened to their host. Philip tries to make his move again; only this time Tony beats him to it… Meanwhile, Belle realizes that Philip is nowhere to be seen and calls Shawn and asks him to come over. Shawn tells her no, but asks her if she will join him at Lookout Point. Belle exicitely says yes and hangs up. Little does she know, Cassie was standing behind her and overheard Belle making the plans to meet Shawn… Brady has changed his mind, and has decided to attend the party. As he arrives, he overhears Victor and Nicole fighting and Victor calling Nicole a "cold blooded murderer". Victor covers saying he was referring to the way Nicole is dressed, "to kill". Nicole claims she needs to freshen up and slips out, Brady is intrigued and follows her into the stables. She is putting more ice over Rolfe's body and Brady almost catches her. Nicole panics, but covers once again. Brady isn't buying it, so Nicole places a big kiss on him to distract him! Brady pulls back and reams her because "you are married to my grandfather!" Brady tells Nicole that she has a serious drinking problem and that she needs to get her life together. Brady takes off leaving behind a very angry Nicole, who snaps maybe she should use Brady's body instead of Rolfe's… Once all are back inside, Victor confronts Brady about Nicole, but he covers saying he hasn't seen her. He then tells Brady that he is sorry about Chloe and comments that it must be lonely at the loft and invites Brady to move into the mansion so he doesn't have to live alone. Brady resists at first, but Victor tells him it would be good since he is setting up the recording studio on the grounds. Brady sees Nicole looking extremely unhappy and he agrees. Victor is thrilled and says he will have Henderson make the arrangements tonight and leaves. Nicole approaches him and makes it known to Brady that she is not happy. We see Victor on the phone a little later talking to Cecelia Marin and he thanks her for getting Chloe out of Salem and out of Brady's life… Since Cassie found out where Shawn was, she heads to Lookout Point. Shawn tells her to leave and she tells him that Belle just couldn't "tear herself away from Philip" and tells him she can give him exactly what he needs… Back at the study, as Tony goes inside to speak to Maya, Philip has taken off his jacket and crawled in the air ducts above the room to eavesdrop on their conversation. As he is crawling, he drops the earpiece and Tek and John cannot get a response from him and are worried. He gets into position and is soon stunned to find out that Belle followed him. She is extremely confused and wonders what he is doing, but he keeps telling her to get out of there. Frustrated, she goes to leave, but discovers that her dress is stuck. Philip tries to help free her but he can't rip the dress without drawing Tony and Maya's attention. Philip then tells her she will have to take off her dress…moreless

    PREVIEW: John's spy skills pay off; Ops rescues Lexie but her baby's life is in danger; Roman risks his life to save Kate. SUMMARY: Still trapped in the sauna at the Titan gym, John exhausts himself trying to get free. He realizes there is a connector on the inside to the thermostat and using his spy skills, he frees the cover and manages to disconnect the heat. He then uses all of his strength and tears a board from the bench and uses it to break the window and pry the machines and weights away from the door – he's free! Shortly thereafter, Ops arrives looking for him and John tells him that Tony left him there to die… Meanwhile, at the hospital, Tony runs into Marlena in the elevator as they head to find Cassie and Rex. Another tremor hits and the elevator gets stuck and they are trapped between floors. Marlena asks Tony about John, knowing they were together earlier but Tony covers and says the last he saw John was at the gym and he managed to get away before the last tremor hit. He tells Marlena what a bad guy John is because he picked a fight with him earlier but Marlena notices the bump on his head and confronts Tony but Tony says his is fine. They continue to talk about John and just as Tony suspects Marlena is onto him, he uses his injuries to distract her by saying he feels light headed. Marlena comforts him - she has Tony lay down and stretch out and put his head in her lap. Tony is playing the moment and realizes what is going on and smiles, but the moment ends shortly thereafter because the elevator starts up again. The two part ways; Tony wants to go look for Cassie and Rex and Marlena says she is going to find John. Marlena is clearly unnerved by her time alone with Tony... Over at the DiMera Mansion, Lexie is still trapped in the pit and she tries desperately to escape. She realizes something isn't right with the baby and cries out in prayer that she not be in labor. Ops has arrived at the mansion to check things out since no one is home and he hears Lexie crying. He rushes to the pit and sees that Lexie is trapped and she begs him for help because she's pregnant and thinks she's in labor. He manages to get Lexie out of the pit and calls 911. He returns to Lexie and she begs him not to leave her. He hears the ambulance approaching and disappears before Lexie has a chance to thank him or even get his name. Lexie is then taken to the ER and her contractions are becoming more intense. An officer told Abe about the 911 from the DiMera mansion and he meets Lexie at the hospital. He soon sees Brandon and orders him to stay away from Lexie. Dr. Bader is called in and confirms that Lexie is in labor and they will try to stop it, but if they can't, there is a chance the baby may not survive... Across town, Kate is still trapped in the building and cannot get the elevator to work and the door to the stairway is stuck. Roman has managed to figure out that Kate must still be trapped in that building and goes upstairs in the building next to it to try to calm Kate and to help her get out. She will have nothing to do with him carrying her across a dangling line connecting the two buildings. Roman tells her this is her only chance and she fights him with everything she's got. He tells her to trust him and tries to calm her with a passionate kiss. She continues to struggle, but Roman has her tied up and at to the window and she begs him not to let go of her. He promises just as she faints, as she mentioned earlier she was afraid of heights. He makes a joke that that will make it easier and he takes her and they both make it safely to the other building. Roman then wakes Kate up and he insists that she get checked out at the hospital. She tells him that she is fine and once she is all back together and realizes what just happened, she is furious with Roman because she thinks that he would rather risk his life than admit that he loves her... Brady and Nicole rush Victor to the ER and the words "cardiac arrest" are being thrown around and this worries Brady. Nicole tells Brady get out of there and to go visit Chloe, but he tells her he is staying until they hear about his grandfather's prognosis. Once he gets word on Victor, Brady does go to visit Chloe. Brady tells her he cannot believe that she risked her life to find him… Meanwhile, Sami and Brandon return to the hospital and Sami lays into Eugenia for interrupting Brandon's proposal to her. Sami tries every chance she gets to convince Brandon to leave so they can go back to the retreat and he can "finish that question he started earlier". Brandon quickly shoots her down every time saying he is needed here. Sami is also very worried that Eugenia will tell Brandon about her changing the paternity test results and threatens to tell on her for screwing up another patients lab results if she spills the beans. A little later, a light that was loosened from the tremors breaks from the ceiling and almost hits Eugenia, but Brandon sees this and pushes her out of the way. Sami is unnerved by this as she saw the whole thing happen. Sami is even more panicked when Eugenia tells Sami that Brandon saved her life and she owes him so she wants to tell Brandon the truth…moreless

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.

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.

    PREVIEW: Jennifer and Jack's first show shocks Salem; Shawn grows concerned about Hope; Kate offers Belle an exciting opportunity. SUMMARY: At Basic Black, Brady arrives to talk to his father, who is in the midst of a meeting with Kate. Kate excuses herself so the two of them can talk. Brady starts off by thanking John for giving him time off to be with Chloe, especially after he begged him for the job. John can tell there is more on Brady's mind than that and he tells Brady just to spit it out, so Brady says that he is quitting. He goes on to explain that he helped Chloe make a list of things she wanted to do and that got him thinking about his own life. He says that beyond the superficial perks of his job there, he hates it. John says they both knew that he wasn't going to make it his career. John tells Brady he did a good job, and hopes that he has a plan and asks him if he's going back to school? Brady says no, he's going to work for Victor at Titan. John tells him no way. John tells him that he doesn't want him working for Victor because of his "other" dealings. Brady tells him that he made sure what he would be doing was legit, and that Victor would never put him in any danger. Brady also points out to his dad that he isn't the safest person to work with either because of his own dealings with Stefano and Tony. John realizes Brady is making sense, and Brady asks for his blessing and John slaps his arm and wishes him luck. John then asks Brady what he is going to do at Titan? Brady says perhaps starting a music division and John wonders maybe creating a record label so he could sign on new talent like Chloe? Brady says maybe and now that the Blue Note is up for sale, that could be a venue to showcase new talent. John knows Brady will be a success and make his mark upon the world. Brady then asks John how things are with Marlena and the twins. Brady says he hopes that Marlena has an easier time with them then she did with him. John tells Brady he's very proud of him and knows his mother would be, too… Meanwhile, Belle comes in to also see her father and she is obviously upset about something. Kate runs into her in the lobby after leaving John's office and she tells Belle that her dad is in taking to Brady right now. Belle says that figures - because she's always waiting in line to talk to her parents these days. Kate and Belle end up back in Kate's office and they are talking about Belle's problems. Belle says she feels bad because her problems are so trivial compared to others – like Chloe. Belle opens up to Kate, and says she feels horrible about her behavior towards Shawn. Kate asks her if she wants to talk about it? Belle flashes back to the fight with Shawn over her panties and she explains to Kate what happened. Kate looks a little surprised and confused, but suggests that she talk to her mom about this. Belle says her mom already feels like a failure as a mom as is, so she doesn't want to bother her with this. Kate tells Belle that she used to be an advice editor and tells Belle to just let it all out and she'll see if she can help. Belle tells her everything. She tells her that Shawn is responsible and trustworthy with everyone but himself. She tells her that Shawn runs around half naked with girls at away baseball games. She doesn't know why he can't be responsible about his own life but he can when it comes to others. Kate asks Belle if it is possible that she has outgrown Shawn? Belle says she hasn't been acting all that mature either. Belle says that she needs something else besides school to balance her life and Kate has an idea. After commenting on how days of the week underwear are hard to find, and Belle agreeing with her, Kate calls it a retro fad and she asks Belle to help her research underwear trends for Basic Black. Belle looks confused and Kate offers her a summer internship at Basic Black… Later, Kate and Belle go to John's office and Kate introduces Belle to John as the newest employee. Belle tells John that Kate offered her a summer internship. John is happy and hugs both Belle and Brady and Brady tells him that he should feel better now that at least one of his kids will be working there. John winks at Kate and Kate smiles… Meanwhile, Lexie has arrived at Carson Palmer's office and he invites her in but before she can explain what she's doing there, he gets a call from the female officer contact at the police department informing him of Vin Ramsel's arrest. He apologizes to Lexie and rushes off... Over at the Salem Police Department, a surprised Shawn arrives to see his father Bo and finds his mother there. She tells him for once there is some good news. She explains that Bo made a big drug bust. Suddenly, Bo hauls Vin into the station. Vin is laughing at Bo and says some people in high places will make him pay for this mistake. Bo tells him that he is not scared. Vin refuses to talk without his lawyer present. Abe says it is a good idea to let Ramsel sweat a little, so Bo helps Vin up out of his chair, by grabbing him by the scruff of his shirt and tells him he's going to sit in a jail cell for a few hours to contemplate his miserable existence before he goes on record. Vin head-buts Bo, and Bo punches him in the face and slams him down on the desk in front of everyone, including the DA, who has just entered, and tells him that he is playing by his rules now! He turns him over to the officers who take him to his cell. Carson Palmer applauses and everyone looks at him. Bo asks Palmer if Ramsel will ever see jail time. Palmer plays it cool and says that it depends on if Bo followed the law. Abe snaps that Palmer owes Bo a thank you for catching Salem's most dangerous criminal, not a reproach. Palmer coolly makes an exit, but runs square into Lexie who was waiting for him in the hallway… Lexie tells Carson that she knows he is in trouble and she may be the only person who can help him. Carson looks interested and Lexie explains that she heard that Jack and Jennifer are going to be starting their talk show today, and they are going to discuss the Vin Ramsel case. Lexie plays it cool and explains to him that she is worried that they will expose confidential information which will cause the case to be thrown out and that could blow his ability to prosecute him. Palmer appreciates the tip, but asks why she is telling him this? She covers again and says she's about to have a baby and wants the world a safer place and she wants to make their neighborhood a safe place. She then throws in there that she has known him since high school, so, why wouldn't she tell him? Carson agrees to check it out and Lexie says that she knows a short cut and will drive him over there… Over at Tuscany, we find Bo, Hope, Shawn, and Zack having lunch. Bo tells them about Jack and Jennifer's show going live today. Hope says she didn't even know about the show. Bo says he has sources that let him know about it, and they will have a "special" guest. Maggie offers to bring a TV over to their table so they can watch it. Hope comments that Shawn is quiet, but he says he is just hungry. Hope tells him he should call Belle and invite her to join them, but Shawn quickly nixes that idea. She asks him if something happened between him and Belle? Shawn covers and tells her no. Maggie then brings over the TV and they turn on the show… Over at Jack and Jennifer's, Jack is shocked when he returns home just before their first show is about to air. The living room is filled with the crew and Jack is going on and on about how the show was supposed to take place in the studio. Jennifer tries to calm him and explains that "Hannah's Household Hints" contract wasn't picked up so they needed to start today, LIVE. Jack is rambling on a mile a minute and Jennifer tries to keep is calm and says that Ralph has everything under control. They strip Jack down and cover him in make up and he frets. Jennifer is sure that making funny comments should be easy, as only Jack can do that. Jennifer and Jack rush to the front door and the countdown begins. They are on the air! Jennifer introduces herself as Jennifer Horton and Jack Deveraux as her husband, well, her ex-husband. Jack is nervous and just stands there and listens while Jennifer attempts to run the show. Jennifer tells the audience that they used to work for the Salem Spectator and that they thought a talk show format would be fun. She turns and finishes buttoning Jack's shirt for him as he manages to utter single syllables and asks her if the opening song will be used all the time? She explains that it is their theme song, so yes, it will. Jack makes it known that he doesn't like it. Jennifer jokes and tells him if they get cancelled and picked up again, he'll get to choose the next theme song. He says he needs 24 hours to prepare, mumbling that this is a deal breaker. She agrees with the 24 hours and shakes his hand to seal the deal as they smile going and break for a commercial. Ralph is off camera, hiding his face in his hands and shaking his head in disbelief… During the commercial break, Jack promises to be better when the doorbell rings. Jennifer tells him that is their first guest and goes to answer the door. Jack realizes they're coming back and panics, but welcomes everyone back to his house, as Ralph keeps correcting him they're in the house. Jack then says that it is time for his pet peeve for the day. He uses his own "TA-DA" sound because there is no other sound effect available. Jack explains that his pet peeve is getting French fries at a fast food restaurant and you have to ask for catsup and then they only give you a couple. And man, are those things hard to open and they don't hold much. He demonstrates that you need to open with your teeth and warns "granny" to watch her dentures as to what you have to do to open the bags as Ralph cringes... Meanwhile, Jennifer has opened the door to find Palmer and Lexie and Palmer threatens to stop what she's doing. Jennifer covers and tells him that they have all the proper permits. He tells he knows what she is doing and he knows about her story on the Vin Ramsel case, and she looks at Jack in the distance doing the show. She tells them he's presenting some hard hitting news right now, as it's obvious he is showing how to open catsup bags. She invites Palmer to come inside and talk to the masses on their show. As journalists they feel it's their duty to present what they found out. Palmer declines, saying he doesn't want her to grill him on TV. Jennifer feels it's their right to say their thoughts then and tells Palmer he's right not to want to face Jack as he knows what a wild card he is. They turn and see Jack talking and waving hands at the camera. Palmer changes his mind, says it is the perfect time to set the record straight. He comes in and heads to the living room and Lexie whispers to Jennifer that she wouldn't miss this for the world and they exchange satisfied smiles and Lexie also heads to the living room. Jack is wrapping up and he tells the viewers to put about 30 packets of catsup in some boiling water for a lovely tomato bisque. Meanwhile, at Tuscany, Shawn wonders if they are going to talk about catsup all the time? Hope says they are probably just trying to make people laugh. Jack then sees Jennifer walking Palmer in and says they're going to commercial and will return with a very special guest. When they return, Jennifer introduces District Attorney Carson Palmer and Jack offers him coffee, tea or catsup? He quickly makes it known that he is not amused and they get on with the show. Jennifer and Jack right away mention Maria Annendel and Vin Ramsel and how they hope they'll be prosecuted. Palmer promises he will do just that. Jack then asks if Palmer knew about Maria's record when he was seen dining with her recently. Palmer is very uncomfortable and they tell him they know the full story. Palmer realizes that they are on live TV just as Jack tells him that they know he and Vin Ramsel are in cahoots and – ta-da! In walks Abe and arrests Palmer live on the air! Jack and Jennifer high five each other and Palmer realizes Lexie set him up. The Brady's are still watching at Tuscany, looking very satisfied. Abe has the officers handcuff Palmer as he reads him his rights, still live, on the air… Back over at Tuscany, we return to the Brady's after Abe has arrested Palmer and Bo said he wouldn't have missed this for anything…moreless

Cassie tells Belle that since they are still family, she can still come visit her. Belle tries to apologize for their fight before, and then asks Cassie what she is doing there? Cassie says she is looking for Chaz. Chaz is walking past and happens to hear his name, comes in and tells Cassie about another party. Cassie tells him that it sounds like fun and asks him to call her. Belle gives him the cold shoulder and is rude to him. He tells Cassie that he is headed to the party house and will call her later. Chaz takes off, and Cassie lays into Belle for being so rude to Chaz and Belle tells her to get out if she wants to hang out with creeps like Chaz. Cassie leaves and heads up to Rex's room. Up in Rex and Shawn's room, they are doing homework and Mimi comes by, letting Shawn know that she wants some alone time with Rex. Shawn takes Mimi's queue and takes off. Once alone, Mimi tries to see what Rex has been working on, but he hides it from her. Mimi asks him how Cassie is doing, but he has been so busy he hasn't heard of her problems. She begins to fill him about Cassie's brush with the law. Cassie gets to Rex's room just in time to overhear Mimi telling Rex what happened with her. She finishes the story for Rex, and then she begs him to move home with her to the mansion. Rex thinks it might be a good idea, but Mimi lets it known that she doesn't like that idea. Mimi tells him that she doesn't want him to move because she won't see him as much. Rex assures her that she can visit him at the mansion. Cassie convinces Rex to start packing now. Rex thinks he could get more work done at home, but he's not sure.

This makes Rex decide to move back home, and Mimi tells Rex that she doesn't have to visit him and leaves. Once alone, Cassie tells him that he made the right decision to move back to the mansion with her. Back in Belle's room, Shawn comes by and tells Belle they should try and settle this. Belle gets upset and tells him that she thinks they are just too different. She thinks they have tried so many times to make love, and it never happens, and she thinks there is a greater reason. Shawn thinks it is because of circumstances, but she says deep down in her heart she feels she doesn't want to make love to him. Shawn asks what can he do to prove himself, but Belle feels that he can't, she feels that they have no honesty and that they just don't belong together. Belle reminds him of the Jan situation. Shawn is upset that Belle won't let that go and Belle turns and picks up a box and gives him his ring back. He says fine, and that if she doesn't trust him, he will just find someone who does… Mimi goes back to Belles room, and both of them complain and moan about Cassie running their lives. Belle tells Mimi about the breakup with Shawn. They both celebrate as well as wallow in their singledom. Shawn returns to his room just as Cassie is leaving and he tells them about the breakup. Cassie returns to Belle's room to get some of her things and rubs it in Belle's face about her and Shawn. Then, Penny comes in with some flyers, telling the girls about a new reality dating show that is casting at Salem U. The girls read the flyers and all decide that they are going to try out… At the Brady house, Hope is still listening to the police band radio. She hears the officers at the station joke with Roman about his lady friend. They are calling him "Captain Romeo" but neither he nor Bo answer calls. This begins to worry Hope and Abe. Hope can't take it anymore and she calls Julie and asks her to come watch Zack while she goes to the station… Meanwhile, at the Police Department, Abe discovers that they have had no contact with Bo or Roman and Jack and Jennifer are talking about the show, and they see Carson Palmer come in. He is there to grill Abe about what the Brady Brothers are up to now. Abe orders Carson to get out or he'll arrest him for obstructing offers duties. Jack and Jennifer are listening from the hallway and hide as they see Carson leave. But before he leaves, he pulls a female cop aside and instructs her to keep him up to date, he wants to know what the Brady's next move is. She agrees and he leaves. Jack and Jennifer decide to follow him back to his office. Hope arrives at the station to see Abe, frantic, sure that something has gone wrong. She wants Abe to order backup, but he says that he can't spare anyone right now. She fears that Bo will try to do it alone. Abe tries to reassure her that everything is under control. Meanwhile, the female cop calls Palmer and tells him that the brothers are ready to move… Jack and Jennifer have followed Palmer back to his office and have caught him in a secret meeting. They hear him talking to someone but can't see who. Jack informs Jen that he placed the bugged pin he gave her in Carson's office so they listen. It's Maria with him and they talk about "taking care" of Jack and Jennifer. When Maria leaves, Jennifer follows her, much to Jack's protest. He is going to keep an eye on Carson. Down in the parking garage, Maria realizes she is being followed and sneaks up on Jennifer and knocks her out with her purse. We later see Jennifer tied up and gagged in the trunk of Maria's car… Meanwhile, on the stakeout, Bo and Roman snoop around the house. Bo picks the lock as Roman scolds him for doing this illegally. Bo knows this is a drug house, but Roman says they won't be able to use any of the evidence without a search warrant. Roman suggests an easier way, and they peer through an open window. When they look inside, they see a table full of drugs and Bo says "Jackpot". They hear a car pull up and they hide in the bushes. It's Vin and he goes inside and gets a warning call from Palmer, "code blue". Jack overhears this and heads to the police station. When he gets there, he tells Abe what he heard, but Abe thinks Jack has nothing. Jack says Jennifer will get the goods from Maria, but when he tries to call her, she doesn't answer. Jack begins to worry that something has happened to her… A while later back at Vin's, Maria shows up and tells him that she spotted the guys out front. (She remembered Bo from the other night). Bo and Roman make it back to the car and radio for backup and to tell Abe what they found. Abe says they have no available units right now and orders them to sit tight until backup arrives. Maria continues to fill Vin in and she tells him about Jennifer. He isn't too happy and tells her to dump her somewhere…he doesn't care what she does with her, do whatever it takes to get rid of her. Vin grabs a gun and says he'll take care of the cops. Bo and Roman are waiting for the back up, but it never comes. Meanwhile, Jack is still trying to call Jennifer, and still no answer. We see Jennifer again in the trunk as she comes to with a panicked look on her face… Back in the car, Bo becomes very impatient and mutters and moans about having to wait. He wants to rush the place and Roman tries to talk him out of it. They see Maria drive off and Bo wants to follow her, but another car pulls up. This time it's Chaz. He goes inside and Vin tells him that he got a "code blue" from Palmer and it's time to go to war. He opens a drawer full of guns. Bo and Roman see Vin come out of the house and stare at them and Bo says he can't wait any longer and tells Roman, "I'm going in" and jumps out of the car….freeze frame on Bo's face…and fade…moreless

Sami feels bad because her husband is having an affair and she doesn't even know it. A nurse points out that some women can't see what's right in front of them and motions to Sami that Brandon is with that pregnant woman again. Sami says he won't be with her for long and takes off. When she returns, she has a guy named George, who works in the pharmacy, over to meet Gwen. She introduces George to Gwen and it is obvious that she is trying to make a love connection between the two. She takes Brandon off to the side and says they should let them talk, but Brandon tells her that this isn't going to work. Sami hurries up and says what a crush George has on Gwen, but Brandon tells her that he knows she did this to get him away from Gwen. Lexie then comes up and says that, for once, she agrees with Sami. She thinks that Gwen and George look good together and they may make a beautiful new family. Brandon asks Lexie to excuse them, and drags Sami out to the terrace. She thinks he wants to make out, but he pushes her off and tells her to quit working him, he doesn't like it. Brandon then tells her that he will be Gwen's birth coach, and she should get used to it. Brandon goes back inside and goes over to Gwen and asks when the next class is, but Gwen tells her he doesn't need him anymore, George has offered to be her partner.

Lisa comments that he looks tired and he says he didn't sleep much. She offers to bring him his usual, and John comes in and sees him and goes over to talk to him. Shawn comments he is tired and John lets him know that he knows that he and Belle slept together, but Shawn quickly lets him know that nothing happened. Shawn is not in a good mood, and he's upset that Belle went to her father with their problems. Shawn wants John to know what happened so he doesn't cross examine Belle that they had a fight and she threw him out. John tells Shawn that maybe Belle was the mature one and men have to be patient and not push. Sami and Brandon walk by at that moment and Sami takes the opportunity to taunt John about how he "waited" for her mom. Brandon pushes her ahead to their table as Shawn takes his breakfast and assures John that he is not giving up on Belle, and takes off. OPS comes into the pub just as Shawn is leaving to talk to John, he has a delivery for him - a report on Tony DiMera. OPS tells John that Tony has a new security system, but he hasn't come up with a way to bypass it - yet… Alone at their table, Sami comments that John has some strange friends as she watches OPS leave right after John did. Brandon tells her to mind her own business. Sami finally asks what Lexie has that she doesn't? Brandon tells her that she is overreacting, and tells her that he just wants a rational discussion. She finally tells him she's not going to put up with him preferring to be with a married woman over her any more and rushes out. Brandon tries to stop her, but she runs off. Outside, as Sami is storming off, Lexie is walking into the pub and notices Sami running off. She walks in and asks Brandon what happened. He tells her that the problem is his fault and there is something that Sami doesn't know about. Lexie tells him secrets are no good and she wants him to be as happy as she is right now. Over at the Hartley House, Mimi comes to see Belle to get the details about last night with Shawn. Belle tells her that it was the worst night of her entire life. She explains that they had a fight and she kicked him out. Mimi asks what Shawn did? Belle says she can't say because it was over something stupid. Mimi assures her that she can talk to her and Belle does tell her that she was wearing her days of the week panties and Shawn made fun of her. Mimi says those are for everyday – not the first time you have sex! Belle continues and says the fight didn't end there, and she tells her about finding out about Shawn's partying. Belle says she and Shawn are just too different. Mimi doesn't know what to say, because she doesn't have any experience with this, so Belle decides to go home and talk to her mother. A little later, Mimi is still in Belle's room working on a paper, and Rex comes in. He says he is there looking for Cassie, but Mimi reminds him she got kicked out. Rex thinks she maybe came to get some of her things. Rex talks to Mimi about Cassie, and he asks her to try to be Cassie's friend. Rex tells Mimi that he thinks she is sensible and it would be good for Cassie. Mimi reluctantly agrees, and this eventually leads to a very passionate kiss. A little later, Shawn comes to Belle's room, looking for Belle, but he only finds Mimi and Rex. They have trouble pulling away from each other but when they do, Shawn eventually asks Mimi if she thought maybe Belle picked a fight with him so she didn't have to have sex? Mimi says that she doesn't think that sounds like Belle, but maybe subconsciously it was? Mimi turns and asks Rex, who tells her he goes to Shawn for advice about girls. Shawn leaves and Mimi asks where they were? Rex tells her that they have a problem. Mimi disagrees. He tells her that he doesn't want to do anything that will hurt her - look what happened to Shawn and Belle who were so close.

Belle tells her that she doesn't want to talk about Shawn because they had a fight. She says she came here to talk to her mom, but she is finding DiMera's everywhere. Cassie snaps at Belle that if Shawn were her boyfriend - then she would find better things to do with him than fight! Cassie and Belle then end up in a huge fight! They are attacking each other and rolling on the floor and Tony and Marlena hear the commotion and run up and break up the fight.

Cassie and Tony make up and hug, and she says she wants to feel like she belongs to someone. Marlena and Belle come downstairs, and Marlena tells Cassie that she is welcome there anytime. She thanks Marlena and hugs her, and gives a smug look to Belle. Cassie and Tony leave, and Marlena asks Belle what she wanted to talk to her about. Belle refuses to say anything and says that her coming here has been a mistake. She goes to walk out and her father is coming in and when he calls her, "tink", she bites his head off and storms out… Meanwhile, on the limo ride home, Cassie tells Tony how John and Belle are so close and she says that she needs that from him, too. She says that John rescues Belle and makes her feel safe. Tony says he won't promise to turn himself into John Black, but she'll always be loved and protected. He then says that if Belle Black's nose gets pushed out of whack, that's too damn bad. Cassie laughs... Over at Brandon and Sami's apartment, Brandon comes home and is surprised to find his bags packed and sitting in the hallway.

Belle is confused and asks him what he means and he says her panties are tomorrows. She stops and says that since it is after midnight she changed them. Shawn thinks this is funny and starts laughing but Belle doesn't think it's so funny. Shawn chalks his laughter up to he is just nervous. Shawn has trouble quitting laughing and this sparks an argument. Shawn tires to get her to calm down and eventually suggests that they start over and forget about it. They begin kissing again, and Shawn is telling her how when he's not with her, he's always thinking about her. Even when he was away on his baseball trip he couldn't stop thinking about her, even with all the guys and girls coming in and out of his room all night. The "girls" part angers Belle, and she questions Shawn what he meant by that. Shawn says the other guys invited the girls over to party, and some of them stayed there all night. Shawn assures her that it didn't mean anything, he did nothing with them. Belle snaps at him that he should have told her about it if it was no big deal, but he still tries to assure her, but Belle has a hard time believing him. She gets up and opens the door and tells him to get out! He gets up, in nothing but his boxers and tells her that she is over reacting, but Belle doesn't think she is.

She comes in and Shawn asks "Amy, what are you doing here?" Turns out she goes to State and is here visiting. And, as it turns out, she was one of the girls in Shawn's room that night. She calls Shawn "Tarzan" because of their night of fun. Amy proceeds to tell Belle a story about Shawn jumping off the roof of the hotel into the pool in nothing but his boxers, but when he hit the water, he lost his shorts, and that resulted in him having to drape a little towel around him. She says that everyone chanted "Tarzan!" and he did the "tarzan" yell. She tries to get him to do it again, but he sternly tells her no. Amy goes onto say that after that is when he crashed, even though the party moved to Shawn's room. Belle tells Shawn that there is a side of him that she has never seen. She tells him that he must have grown bored with her, so he jumped at the chance to party with some sexy cheerleaders. She once again tells him to get out and tells him to go party with people who appreciate the real Shawn Brady… At Club Echelon, John is there and is quizzing Tony when John's cell phone rings. It is Cassie, she has been arrested for public drunkenness, and asks John to come help her.

He wonders if she can help. She tells him no at first until he gives her some money. She tells him she will see what she can do and she takes him to a house, and tells Bo to wait in the car, she will handle it. Bo doesn't stay, in fact she barely gets out of the car, and he is right behind her. Maria knocks on the door and Vin answers it and tells her the party is almost over - where has she been? Bo then comes up to the door and says he wants to party. Maria snaps that she told him to wait in the car, but Bo says he wants to party now. Vin asks Bo for references and he tries to get smart with him by naming some dead presidents but Vin tells him he won't sell him anything. Maria goes inside and Bo takes off, upset that he got nowhere. He returns to the club and meets up with Jack and Jennifer. He explains to them what happened and gives Jennifer the address to the house, so they can run a check on it.

Natasha says that Maria is a hard one and anybody else would be fired for treating the guest that way, but Maria gets away with it.

    PREVIEW: Marlena accuses John of treating her like a criminal; Jennifer and Jack confront Palmer, but he plays it cool; Belle is stunned to discover that Cassie is completely recovered from her hangover. SUMMARY: At the Black penthouse, Marlena comes downstairs, adjusting her earring in silence. John approaches her and tells her that she came to bed in silence, and she has been cold and distant all day. Marlena is very angry about the bug John put in her purse and tells him that she does not like being treated like a criminal… Over at the Hartly House, Belle enters her room, only to find Cassie on the floor doing sit-ups. Belle is surprised that she is feeling so well. Cassie tells her that Chaz came by and he gave her a Prairie Oyster. It contained a raw egg and Worcestershire sauce that seemed to do the trick. Add that to a couple shots of whiskey and she's better. Belle says she cannot believe she would drink again after being so sick, but Cassie shrugs it off. She tells Belle that her and her boyfriend, Chaz, are going to a party tonight, thrown by some guy named Vin. Belle tries to reason with her, but she refuses to listen. Belle tries to call Marlena, but is told she will have to handle it herself, that it was not a good time. Belle hangs up and Cassie looks a little too pleased. Once Marlena hangs up with Belle, John tells her that he just wants to protect his family, but Marlena will not hear of it. She tells him he is irrational, and he says if that is what she thinks, he has nothing more to say. He turns away and she asks him where he got the bug, and wants to know what other little tricks has he acquired, but he is now silent. She talks about their relationship and how it has always being based on trust, and wonders what has happened to them? John says he must protect his family, no matter what, but Marlena will not put up with it. John asks why not, unless she has something to hide. They argue about Tony, and Marlena points out that she thinks John is afraid that Tony will take Marlena away from him, just like he took Kristen from Tony. John argues back, pointing out Tony's motives. Marlena has had enough and says she is going for a walk. She picks up her coat, and checks all the pockets, telling John she is looking for a tracking device. He assures her there isn't one and she takes off… Meanwhile, back at the Hartley House, Mimi and Rex are talking about math, and Rex offers to help her, but Mimi says could never concentrate, while looking into Rex's beautiful eyes. She tells him she could see into his soul through them, but he doesn't believe in something he cannot see. Chaz then comes downstairs, and they ask what he is doing there, and he tells them he is helping a friend. He tries once again to convince them to come to the party but they refuse again and they leave. Once he is gone, Mimi makes a crack about getting drunk, just as Professor Bahlah walks in and tells them he hopes they know that Hartley House has a zero tolerance policy for drinking, and you could be expelled from the house for doing so. They assure him they were talking about an off campus party they have no intention of attending. The professor asks Rex for some help and Mimi excuses herself to go find Belle. The Professor shows Rex a math problem the PHD candidates in his department cannot seem to solve, and a lot of grant money is riding on it. Rex agrees to take a look at it, but only if the Professor promises to give him all the tests he needs to graduate early, and that he speaks to his other teachers to get them to do the same. Since so much prestige and money is riding on it, the professor agrees, and Rex solves it in a matter of minutes. Bahlah thanks him, making a joke about his humor needing work, but his math talents are otherworldly. Rex gets upset and tells him not to call him "otherworldly" as he is not an alien. Bahlah assures him that it was a joke, and see, his sense of humor does need work. Rex relaxes and the professor offers Rex a job after his early graduation, but Rex says he has an experimental research project he wants to work on first. The professor seems interested and asks about it, but Rex refuses to say what it is, only that it is top secret, and that people will be blown away… Back upstairs, Belle and Cassie are now arguing about John, and Cassie remarks that John never liked the twins to begin with. Then they argue about Belle and Belle flashes back to the day she learned that the twins were her mothers kids, and Mimi comes in. Cassie quickly takes off for a shower, and Belle tells Mimi that Cassie is not going to ruin her night. Mimi asks if that means her and Shawn are going to have sex, but Belle doesn't say anything. When Cassie comes back in, they argue more about being sisters, partying, drinking, Chaz being bad news, and on and on… Rex has arrived but mostly just stands here and listens. Belle tries to talk to her, but Cassie refuses to listen to reason, and flounces off. Rex goes after her and they argue. Cassie tells him they may be twins, but she wants to find herself and discover who she is, apart from him. Meanwhile, Belle is having several flashbacks to various arguments she has had with Cassie over Shawn. Rex comes back in, saying he made no headway with Cassie, and wonders what they are going to do. Belle says she is through worrying about her, and she will stay out of Cassie's life… Downstairs, Cassie arrives in the lobby and she asks another student if they have seen Chaz, but the gal has not seen him. She asks Cassie how she is feeling, and says that she heard that she has a bit of "the hair of the dog". She tells Cassie that she has more if she wants it, and she pulls a cold can of beer from her purse. Cassie thanks her, and the gal leaves. Cassie looks relieved and she opens the can, just as Professor Bahlah comes over to her looking for Rex. He realizes Cassie is hiding something behind her back, and when trying to hide it, Cassie drops the opened can, he sees that it is beer and reminds her of the zero tolerance policy, and says he will have to report her. She tells him that she can explain… Jack and Jennifer arrive at Carson Palmer's office and they pretend to be exterminators, telling Palmer's secretary that the place is overrun with mice. She says that she hasn't seen one, and Jack then holds up a dead, white mouse up by the tail. The gal screams and runs out. Jennifer smiles, and opens her purse, and Jack puts it in her purse. Inside his office, Carson is on the phone, telling someone that Bo Brady and Jack Deveraux are getting too close…just as Jack and Jennifer burst in. Palmer is angry, but Jack and Jennifer start right in with questions about the woman he was with. Palmer covers and says he picked her up at the bar. Jack and Jennifer know that is a lie, and tells him that they know her name and ta-da! She is a woman he prosecuted in the past! He then digs himself in deeper and says he was just picking up an attractive woman, but later recalled prosecuting her, so that was the end of it. He then orders them to leave, which they do, but not before promising to be back for the truth. Jack and Jennifer return to the Spectator, excited to know they are getting close. Harold comes in with a file, filled with more goodies on Palmer. Jack and Jennifer study it and discover that Palmer is excellent at raising campaign money, but doesn't account where it all went. Jack has an idea to "shed more light" on the situation, and they take off with some mini flashlights. Later on, back in Palmer's office, he is on the phone with Maria trying to warn her, that Jack and Jennifer know who she is and to stay away from him. He goes to leave and gives his secretary Carol some explicit instructions, of which we do not hear. He leaves, and Jack and Jennifer are hiding around the corner, and they try to sneak in, but are stopped by Carol, who is on to them now. She tells them she knows they are Jennifer Horton and Jack Deveraux, two reporters at the top of Palmer's blacklist! They leave but hide around the corner again and once Carol is gone, they try once again to break it, only this time they are stopped by a security guard. Jack covers and says he is a process server who was unable to deliver a summons, and wanted to leave Palmer a note. The guard tells him too bad and tells him to call and leave a voice mail message. Jack pretends to leave, and he and Jennifer go back again. This time, Jennifer takes off a brooch, and picks the locks on both doors. They get into Palmer's office, and Jennifer gets an idea to hit the redial on the phone to see who Palmer may have called after they left. A sexy voice answers "Club Echelon". Jennifer quickly hangs up, and Jack tells her that is a "Gentlemen's Club". Jennifer wonders how he knows that. Jack quickly changes the subject and says he will go and tells her to go home to Abby, he will see her later. Jennifer wishes him luck, but no luck with the ladies. He tells her that she is the only lady he wants to get lucky with. They kiss and he tells her they have all the luck in the world, and he leaves. Once alone, Jennifer tells him to be careful…and fade…moreless

Mimi comes in whispering and Cassie speaks up and tells them not to talk so loud. Belle walks over to her and uncovers her and Cassie asks for water. Belle smiles and hands the watering can to Mimi, who dumps it on her. Cassie jumps up and says that she feels like she is dying and needs a doctor.

Belle tells her they were talking about drinking with a guy she hardly knew and Belle tosses her the aspirin and a bottle of water and they leave for class, telling her to have a nice day… Back downstairs, Shawn asks Rex what he wants to do about breakfast and Rex goes into a speech about being bored with college and wants to get out there and experience life. He goes on and on about how people pretend to be your friends and then stab you in the back and you can't trust anyone. He says the golden rule should be "Do unto other before they do unto you". Shawn points out that he sounds like Tony DiMera talking. Rex defends Tony, saying he is the only one who has been consistent with them since being in Salem… Meanwhile, over at the Salem Police Department, Hope arrives with Zack to see Bo. Bo is in Abe's office on the phone with the parents of Ben Wells and he tells them that he will catch who did it. Just as he hangs up, Hope and Zack come in and Bo is glad to see them and picks up Zack and holds him tight. Bo rants that Ben died and the shooter was set free. Hope tries to comfort him and tells him that it wasn't his fault, but Bo is beating himself up. He says that there is something wrong with the system and the victims have no rights. He is very passionate and questions his own effectiveness and considers quitting the force. Hope gives him her support and leaves… Meanwhile, back at the Hartly House, Hope and Zack come in to see Shawn. She runs right up to him and gives him a hug and a kiss.

Over at the Hospital, Victor comes in and asks the nurse if she has seen his grandson, Brady Black. The nurse tells him to try Chloe's room and see if he can convince him to take a cat nap, or at least get something to eat. In Chloe's room, Brady is watching Chloe sleep and Isabella suddenly appears. Brady is more than surprised to see her, but she tells him that she is there to offer him support. She notices the butterfly he bought and reminds him how fragile they are. She reflects about when she was a little girl and trying to help a butterfly emerge from its cocoon and when she tried, it died. She tells him that Victor explained to her that sometimes things need to struggle to survive and live on their own. Just then, Victor opens the door and says, "Isabella?" Brady thinks he can see her, but he says that seeing Chloe lay there brought back memories of his daughter. He has flashbacks of Isabella's wedding day, and him giving her her mother's pearls and then of her telling him she has cancer. He tells Brady that he can very strongly feel her presence there. Brady looks at his mother, but she tells him that Victor cannot see or hear her. Victor apologizes for the way he treated Brady earlier and asks how Chloe is doing. Brady gives him an update and Victor asks if there is anything he can do. Brady appreciates the effort but says he feels there is nothing that he can do for her. Victor tells him about Isabella and says that they can keep her alive through their memories. Brady tells him that he can't help but look at Chloe and think how his mother fought the same battle, and Victor says he is proud of him. Isabella speaks to Victor, although he cannot hear her, saying she feels that Victor has changed and would hate to see him fall back to his old ways, but she has faith in him. She asks Brady for some help and Brady tells Victor that Isabella loved him. He goes onto say that he should let go of the bitterness and anger, because that is what Isabella would want. Victor talks about when Isabella died and the last time he saw her. He wishes he could hear her voice once again and Brady tells him that he can always talk to him.

Brady tells her that now she knows it wasn't a dream... Outside, in the hallway, Nico rushes up to Victor, and tells him that Tony DiMera wants to meet with him…NOW. Meanwhile, back at the police station, Bo has dragged some kid named Tommy into the station for info. Bo reminds him that he is going to be an informant for them. Tommy tells him that there is someone powerful out there and if you are down with him, he can hook you up with what you need. Bo demands to know who it is, but Tommy claims he doesn't know. Bo tells him to find out and Tommy agrees, but only if Bo makes it look like he isn't volunteering info. Bo tries to resist and Tommy finally convinces him to punch him. Bo punches him right in the side of the face and then drags him outside and tells the other cops to get him out of there. Just then, Hope arrives back and they talk about the "Mr. Big" and Bo vows to find out who it is. He asks her to keep quiet and she asks what she can do. He only wants her to stay safe. She tells him she doesn't want him to fight it alone. As she leaves, she thinks that she will help him. She then calls her dad and asks if he and Julie would watch Zack for a while. They agree and she leaves. Back inside, Bo gets an urgent call and asks "how big?" He then tells them to get down there now – RIGHT NOW!…and fade…moreless

    PREVIEW: Marlena remembers the past; Nicole attempts to turn the tables on Victor; Jack and Jennifer team up to investigate Carson Palmer; Kate woos Roman with a night of romance. SUMMARY: At the Blue Note, Jack and Jennifer walk in, ready to celebrate. As they sit down, she pulls out a bridal magazine, saying they have a lot of decisions to make. He tells her that the only part of the wedding he wants to talk about is the honeymoon, the rest of the wedding is her department. He tells her that he will read all the magazines later, even the ones that she has stuffed under their bed. Jennifer is giddy that he even knows about those. She proceeds to tell him about the call from her dad and Jack says that he knows that Bill wasn't happy to hear they're together again. She explains her dad is just concerned for her. They soon see Carson Palmer walk in with a woman who may as well have just walked in from the streets. Roman and Kate also arrive. As Roman and Kate are seated, Roman discovers that Kate had pre-ordered his favorite beer on ice, corn-nuts and BBQ corn chips. He is impressed that she did all of this for him. She just teases him that he loves the "blue collar cop" role. They enjoy each others company and he wonders how he will repay her for her thoughtfulness. He then says maybe he should pay some guy to stop the Penthouse Grill elevator between floors for a couple hours alone with her again. Jack tells Jennifer that Palmer will lose his title once he's finished with him. Jennifer then has to stop him from approaching Palmer just as Kate and Roman come over to congratulate them on their engagement. Jack asks them if they have wedding bells in their future and Jennifer tries to subtly kick him under the table and he stops. Kate just smiles and says that Roman, like all divorced guys, finds that wedding bell tones don't ring in their frequency. Roman then spots Palmer and Kate suggests they ignore him and return to their table. Roman can't stop looking at Palmer, but he is in his own little world at his table and hasn't managed to spot any of them yet. Jack tells Jennifer that you can't buy champagne and caviar on a DA's salary and heads over to talk to him. Jennifer tries to stop him, but she is too late. Palmer sees Jack, but tells him to leave as he is on a date. Jack asks her for her name but Palmer interrupts before she has a chance to say anything and asks Jack when he'll stop being a reporter. Jack says when Palmer will be stop being such a DA, and this causes Palmer to stand up. Jack learns that Palmer is planning on going into politics just as Jennifer escorts him away. Once back at their table, Jennifer notices that Palmer's date is doing all the talking and wonders why. Jack then says that he recognizes that woman from somewhere. They see her get up and Jack wants to follow her until they realize she's going into the ladies room, so Jennifer follows her. Once alone, Jack proudly says, "that's my girl". In the ladies room, Jennifer "accidentally" knocks the woman's purse to the floor and offers to help pick it up. Jennifer scoops up her belongings and goes to walk out. As she goes for the door, the woman tells "blondie" to stop. She says that her wallet is missing and tells Jennifer to give it back. Jennifer plays innocent, but opens her purse up anyway and acts surprised when she finds her wallet and returns it. The woman checks it and says that everything is there, and she leaves. Jennifer breathes a sigh of relief. Back at Roman and Kate's table, Roman is obviously distracted by Palmer's presence, and he excuses himself to talk with him while his date's away. Palmer tells Roman that he should have checked who was there before coming. Palmer tells Roman that he is keeping a close eye on him as well as his brother Bo. Kate walks over to take Roman back to their table. Palmer greets Kate and asks Roman how it feels to date Victor's ex-mistress. Kate stays cool and takes Roman away, but Palmer continues about Bo being Victor's son. He wonders if the Salem PD is in bed with the world famous Greek tycoon? Or maybe the Brady brothers are on Victor's payroll? Palmer hopes that Jack is listening to all of this and looks over at him and Jack waves in acknowledgement. Kate returns and very coolly, but very softly tells Palmer that men who talk big are making up for their own "deficiencies". Roman then pulls her away and says that he doesn't want Palmer targeting her too. He tells her that he will protect her, but she tells him that she is worried that it might cost him his career. Roman tells her not to worry about that and tells her that he wants to be with her now and in the future. He tells her that Palmer can take his threats and shove them. Just then, Palmer's date returns to their table and gives him a hug and kiss. Jennifer follows and when she returns to her table, she tells Jack what happened. She tells him that she tried to get her wallet, but she got caught and she says that she also found out what kind of a person she is, and she is and more then a "tad" cheap! Jack isn't sure what that means and Jennifer tells him that she would never be invited to the Salem's Woman's Club. Kate notices that Palmer is looking at them, but Roman says that Palmer's date is a dog compared to her and Palmer is just jealous. Kate tells him the woman is gorgeous, but Roman says she's not his type… Jennifer then asks Jack if Palmer is dangerous and Jack says that if Palmer feels that getting involved with pinky rings and a line of thugs backing him up would improve his career, that could make him very dangerous… Meanwhile, over at the Kirikas Mansion, Victor is on the phone threatening what will happen if a shipment doesn't arrive on time when Nicole walks in. Victor is dressed for bed and Nicole tells him that she's onto him and she's not going to let him get away with it. He wonders what she is getting at and she says that she had to walk in the cold from the garage because he changed the locks on her car to keep her prisoner there. He tells her to get out of his room and slams the door in her face. Victor then tells Nico to track down the "Mr. Big" in Salem. He says that he is glad that Bo came to him to see if he knew who this guy was, because he wants to improve their relationship by getting the information. He tells Nico that if this guy has any connection to his own business, he doesn't want to know about it. Nicole is standing outside the door and hears everything and smiles. Victor sends Nico to work and asks him to turn off the lights on his way out. Victor gets into bed and Nicole comes in, quietly and approaches him in bed and straddles him. He turns on the lights and tells her to get off him, but she tells him she overheard him talking to Nico about all his illegal activities. She demands her freedom or she will tell Bo that he is involved in organized crime. She tells him that a murder against the mob is no big deal. Victor tosses her to the floor and laughs and tells her that she is a loser, and she was stupid for losing her five million dollars. Realizing she's been defeated, she stomps off, threatening to make him beg for mercy one day. He just lays there and laughs... Meanwhile, Marlena and Tony are in Tony's limo on their way to see Rolf. She says that she needs to call John, but Tony asks her not to. She tells him that John has a right to know what's going on, but Tony tells her that they should spare John's feelings on this. He then says that John's temper will rise and he'll go after Rolf when they want to get information out of him instead. Marlena silently agrees… Meanwhile, over at the Black Penthouse, John is leaving a message for Marlena wanting to know why her cell phone is turned off. He then calls Caroline to see if Marlena went back to the pub. With no luck, he turns on a device that he pulled out of his pocket... At the DiMera mansion, Tony and Marlena have arrived and are walking to the front door. Tony admits that he is nervous about what they'll find out. Just then, John approaches them, wanting to know what's going on. He is very upset with Marlena that she didn't call and invite him to join them. Tony speaks up and admits that it is his fault, he asked Marlena not to call him. John then thinks that Tony is trying to bond with Marlena. Marlena asks Tony if he could give her some time alone with John and he goes inside. Marlena asks John how he knew where she was, and he asks for her purse. She things he's trying to stall, but gives it to him and he opens it and pulls out a tracking device. She is very upset, and says that she feels like he doesn't trust her. John tells her that it's Tony he doesn't trust. Tony opens the door and tells them he wants to get on with the interrogation, so they go inside. Marlena firmly tells John they'll talk about it later. They enter the living room, to find Rolf tied to a chair. As soon as Marlena sees him, she has another flashback to the babies being born. John then says that he recognizes him, too. He says that he remembers him being with Stefano in a lab somewhere. Bart whispers an apology to Rolf and unties him before being dismissed. Tony tells Rolf to tell them the truth. Rolf admits delivering the twins. Tony yells at Rolf for the truth, and he is upset they didn't even know their children existed. Rolf then says that he supervised their upbringing. John asks about a closet full of toys and baby furniture on the island. Rolf commends him on his memory and said they had to airlift the twins off the island. John damns Stefano for controlling the twins just like they did him. Tony demands details and Rolf calmly tells him that Stefano paid him for his brains and loyalty and he will not tell them anything. Tony threatens to kill Rolf but he doesn't budge. Marlena asks Tony to let her try to talk to Rolf and he agrees. She implores him to know more about her children. Rolf tells her that she had the babies with her for "several months" before they were taken away. Marlena yells at him that she'd remember that if it were true. John then speaks up and he reminds Rolf that Stefano is dead and won't know if he talks now. John grabs Rolf and pulls him up and reminds him that Stefano trained him as a highly effective assassin and unless he wants a most uncomfortable experience, he better start talking! Rolf then reluctantly agrees to tell them everything they want to know…and fade…moreless

Abe and Bo argue over gangs; Nancy takes Joy to visit Chloe; Cassie tells Belle to sleep with Shawn. SUMMARY: Brady runs through the halls of the hospital towards Chloe's room after hearing the page for him to return there. He gets there and finds Craig and asks him what is wrong. Craig tells him she is OK, she just had another chemo treatment, and she is feeling depressed. He says he tried to help but she told him to "scram" so he thought maybe Brady could give it a shot. He goes into her room, but Chloe tells him that she wants him to leave her alone. He refuses to go anywhere, but she pleads with him and he eventually does as she asks, and as he steps into the hall, Chloe starts to drift off to sleep… Over at the Black Penthouse, John runs downstairs to open the door to Belle, who is crying. She comes in, and tells John that Shawn is away, and when she called his cell phone, a girl answered. John tries to calm him Izzy B down and does his best to reassure her and to tell her to give Shawn the benefit of the doubt. The doorbell suddenly rings again, only this time, it is Brady. He thinks he's interrupting but they tell him to stay, as Belle asks him about Chloe. Brady fills them in on her progress and Belle asks Brady to give Chloe her love. Belle says she remembers she has to be somewhere and she leaves. Once alone, Brady asks John about how he dealt with Isabella when she was dying. He asks him if he felt as helpless towards her and he feels towards Chloe. Brady explains that Chloe had more chemo, and is pushing him away. John just simply tells him to hang in there. He tells him to be there for her, but not to push... At the Salem PD, Hope comes in to see Bo and he asks her how her session with Marlena went, and Hope tells him that Larry was there. Bo looks concerned, but she quickly replies that he was there in her mind only, as Marlena told her to imagine Larry was there, so she could lay into him for all the wrongs he's done. She tells Bo she feels so free now. Lexie comes in, and comments how happy Hope looks and says she is upset because Abe working so hard, just as he comes out of his office. Abe walks up and hugs Lexie, but he drops a file. Bo picks it up, and sees that is stays that Eddie Monel has been released. Bo is steamed, and blasts Abe about the gang-bangers making the streets unsafe. Bo is ready to go after him, but Abe orders him not to leave. They are interrupted by Lexie feeling the baby kicking, and takes Hope's hand so she can feel also. Lexie says that she has nearly completed her Community Service and thinks she may return to being a doctor again. Hope mentions that since Zack is starting pre-school, she will have time on her hands, and she might rejoin the force. Bo quickly voices his opinion that he doesn't think that is a good idea. Hope tells him that is such a double standard: How come is it O.K. for him to be in danger but not her? Abe mentions to Lexie about not being able to make a Lamaze class, so Hope volunteers to be her coach in his absence. Lexie says that would be great and worries about what has happened between them. Hope hugs her and tells her the past is the past and they can be friends again. Lexie suggests they all go to Brady Pub for the St. Patrick's Day celebration, but Bo says he's not interested. Hope voices her opinion about wanting to help protect Salem's kids in some way or other, and vows to Bo that she will think of something. They all walk out to head to the pub and they are very loudly singing "Oh, Brady boy" to the tune of Oh, Danny boy"… At the Heartly House, Cassie is alone in her room and has decided she will snoop through Belle's desk. She finds a box labeled "private" and when she opens it, she finds a necklace that Shawn gave Belle, and she picks it up and "thanks Shawn", and then she reads a letter he wrote. In the midst of the letter, Marlena walks in, saying she is shocked. Cassie looks so guilty, but says that she can explain. Marlena doesn't realize what Cassie is really doing and she thinks her genius daughter was studying because of some books on the top of the desk. She says she thought Cassie supposedly never needed to open a book. Marlena says she came because she wanted to spend some time with Cassie. Cassie plays it out and says that everyone in the dorm has gone to parties celebrating "some saint", and no one invited her. Marlena tells her OK, get her coat, they're going out… Back at the hospital, in the hall, Nancy is in a wheel chair, waiting to pick up Joy so they can go home. Craig arrives and starts to push her and Nancy asks him if he will take her to see Chloe. Craig tells him she is very tired after her treatment and Nancy insists she needs to go. Craig takes her and Chloe doesn't look too upset and the three of them chat a while and Nancy gives Chloe a picture of Joy to hold on to. This brings tears to Chloe's eyes and she tells them she's worried, but Nancy comforts her, telling her it is OK to be scared. Craig and Nancy leave and Chloe holds onto Joy's picture. Once outside, Nancy expresses her concern to Craig that she doesn't want to leave Chloe while she's like that. Craig tells her to worry about herself and Joy and to let him worry and take care of Chloe. A little later, Chloe seems to fall asleep, and Brady has retuned and just watches her sleep through the window. Craig and Nancy come back so Joy can say bye to her big sister and they hold Joy up to the window and knock and Chloe wakes up and sees Joy looking at her. This makes Chloe smile… Over at the Brady Pub, it is a St Patrick's Day celebration! It is filled with St. Patrick's Day decorations, green beer and punch, loud Irish music, and lots of people. Mimi is dressed for the occasion and she sees Rex come in, and goes to greet him. He wishes her a "Happy St. Patrick's Day" in Gaelic, saying he researched the day on the internet, and studied the language for a couple of hours. Rex notices that everyone is wearing green, but says that he forgot. Mimi assures him it's OK, and tells him that her Irish "Granny" made her striped socks that she is wearing. Grandpa Shawn is telling jokes and Caroline tells everyone to dance! Rex quickly refuses, because he doesn't know how. Mimi tells him that he doesn't have to be perfect, but he says he does! A couple of people dance a jig, and Mimi does a solo number. Rex stands and watches her, and is seemingly impressed and he smiles at her. Marlena and Cassie come in, and Mimi sees a guy checking her out and tells her there's a guy there that wants to be with her and Cassie immediately assumes it's Shawn. Mimi tells her no, and points to the guy checking her out. Cassie doesn't seem too excited and Mimi tells her to forget Shawn, there's lots of cute guys right there, and teaches her how to dance an Irish jig. Cassie learns fast, and is dancing solo when Belle arrives. Cassie realizes the eyes have gone off of her and are focused on Belle and is not happy. Marlena sees that Rex has been watching Mimi, and she tells him he should pursue it. Rex quickly tells her that he doesn't want to be vulnerable, and says you lose you power that way. He storms off, and Marlena looks concerned… Mimi eventually convinces Rex to dance a slow one with her and he is seemingly enjoying himself. He abruptly breaks away and Mimi asks what is going on. Marlena sees Belle and goes to talk to her and Bo, Hope, Abe and Lexie come in. Everyone is enjoying themselves, as there is lots of laughter, music and dancing. Cassie walks up to Marlena and Belle, and Marlena walks off, leaving Belle alone with Cassie. Belle is clearly not happy about this and tries to walk away, but Cassie follows and takes the opportunity to ask if she and Shawn have had sex yet. Belle tells her it is not OK for her to be asking these questions but Cassie keeps at her and tells her that she is going to have to put out. Belle tells her that she is not one to give advice, since she has no experience in that area. Cassie tells her that it is easily fixed, and grabs the guy checking her out earlier and asks him to dance. The two dance and Cassie looks as though she has another agenda in mind… John comes in and finds Marlena. He tells her how happy to see his two favorite girls in same place and tells her about the visits from Belle and Shawn. Marlena seems surprised, as Belle didn't mention anything. John says that he doesn't like the tension between them, and he asks her how to end it. Marlena suggests they dance. Bo, Hope, Abe and Lexie are sharing a table and having a good time when Bo's cell phone rings. He seems upset and when he hangs up, he tells Abe that Ben Wells died earlier. The poor guy never regained consciousness. Bo lets on that he is very angry, but Abe orders him off the case, saying he is putting Roman in charge. He tells Bo to say put, but Bo takes off anyway. Abe turns to Hope, and tells her that Bo is making a big mistake…fade…moreless

    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

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 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

    PREVIEW: John gives Tony some ground rules about Marlena -- and confides his true feelings to Kate; Chloe begins her treatments. SUMMARY: In Chloe's hospital room, she is laying there and Brady is staying right by her side. She has just had her first radiation treatment and is being told what lies ahead for her. She asks Brady to hold her as she is very scared. Brady gets up on the bed next to her and tells her he will help her through this time. Brady compares this experience with a caterpillar to butterfly metamorphosis. She'll be re-born in a sense after this procedure. Later, Craig comes in and Brady excuses himself to check some cell phone messages. Craig tells Chloe that he talked with her oncologist about her tests and she is going to be okay. Craig gives her a kiss and says everything will be okay. Chloe tells him that she's dreamed of this day for so long, and tells him how when she was young and burst her head open and needed stitches. She whacked her head on a dresser while doing ballet spins and was taken to the ER. While in the ER she remembers praying that her daddy would come and kiss her owie and tell her everything would be okay. Craig bends over and kisses her forehead gently and tells her everything will be OK (very touching scene here). Later, Chloe wake up and finds Brady fluttering a stuffed butterfly he got for her at Barron's Department Store. She tells him she wants him to take a nap with her and he kisses her, agreeing. We return to Brady thinking Chloe is asleep cuddling her butterfly and tries to get up, but she opens her eyes and asks him not to leave… In other areas of the hospital, Nancy is still in labor. She is extremely frustrated that they won't let her go to Chloe's bedside, but Craig assures her that Brady is by Chloe's side. Nancy kids with Craig that their new daughter is already causing problems by taking her time. As time goes on, Nancy grows more and more frustrated about not being able to be near Chloe when she has a strong contraction. Craig tells her she can't get up with the epidural. She continues to have strong contractions and she realizes that she can feel his hand on her leg, saying the epidural has worn off and she wants to go be with Chloe! He tells her no, but she tells him either he helps her or she's going on her own… At Dot.Com, Lucas is talking with Kate about Brandon and Sami moving in together, and he is furious because Sami did not consult with him before she moved in with Brandon. Lucas damns Sami for doing this to him and Will and he wishes he could ring her neck. Roman shows up and suggests he not do that. Roman catches on after listening to Kate defend Sami's having someone live with her as the way of the times. Roman shocks Lucas and Kate when he agrees with them, this is a bad idea because Will is impressionable and he doesn't want to see him getting attached to Brandon and have him leave. Lucas continues to badmouth Sami, saying she can't hold onto a man, so this will keep happening. Roman tells Lucas to stop pushing it. Kate asks Lucas to excuse them, and he agrees and comments on how "subtle" that was and goes to the counter for more coffee. Kate and Roman talk in private. Roman wishes Sami would have told him about this. He also thinks they should make a commitment and marry. Kate tells Roman that he is a hypocrite; they have been sleeping together for months without talk of a commitment. Roman disagrees and says he and Kate aren't living together, nor do they have a small child to worry about. Kate asks why they can't just have a few laughs and good sex then? Roman suggests they can fix that. Kate jokes if he is talking about making an honest woman out of her? Roman gets embarrassed and she laughs and tells him not to worry. Roman says he has to take off, he will call her later and he leaves. Lucas returns and asks what happened. She tells him, and he asks her if she would really want to marry Roman. Kate tells a surprised Lucas that Roman's probably been the best guy she's ever involved with. After Lucas mentions Roman's virtuous tendencies, Kate admits that's why she knew their relationship was doomed from the start... Later on, Lucas is listening to some music and bumps into a gal, but can't place her. We learn she's Nurse Deb from the 3rd floor nurses station. She is very open that she is hitting on him and they hit it off, and talk about jazz singers they like. They discover they both like older jazz and how she's not seeing anyone right now. Lucas suggests they go back to his apartment for some food, jazz and whatever else might happen. She zeros in on him and accepts, saying she thinks they'll be on the same wavelength about a lot of things… At the Hartley House, Marlena has gone there to see the twins. She heads to Rex and Shawn's room and catches Rex just as he was leaving, but he decides to make time for her. Marlena is impressed by his room and she inquires about an object and is told it's an atom smasher. He explains he made it, not even a school project. Marlena was hoping to see Cassie as well and learns Cassie aced another history test. Marlena is shocked to learn Cassie doesn't even go to class yet aces everything. Rex tells her he goes to his classes, but Cassie kids it's only to check out the girls in them. Cassie automatically assumes Marlena's surprise at their intelligence as thinking they're freaks. Marlena says no, she thinks of them as incredibly gifted. Cassie and Marlena admit they couldn't sleep thinking about this new development. Cassie asks how she could have forgotten giving birth to them? Marlena can't explain how come the memory was lost to her about their birth, but felt the connection the first time she met them. She'll love them forever now. Rex says she isn't to blame, she was a victim of Stefano just like they were. Cassie worries that they may be like Stefano, but she says they won't. Marlena asks them to go to breakfast and talk, but Rex says they have been invited to brunch at the mansion. Cassie tells Rex she'll drive herself and she'll meet Rex there. Once alone with Marlena, Cassie asks if this is only temporary again, like before. Marlena assures her it's not and she would do anything to change what happened to them. Cassie sees Marlena is crying, and is touched. Cassie asks if she's going to work now, but Marlena tells her she's going to stop by and see John first… At the DiMera mansion, Tony is having some sort of a "meeting" with two gentleman in the living room with the doors closed and Eliana disturbs him to let him know John Black is here and won't leave until he sees him. Tony goes to see John, who wants to talk to Tony about some rules for their little family. Tony questions John's sincerity in welcoming the twins into the family. John tells him he came in peace. He realizes Tony is trying to cover something and pushes him to learn more and suggests they go in the living room and talk, but Tony says no. John pushes and Tony tells him that he's expecting Cassie and Rex for brunch and the staff is preparing the living room for it, so it's off limits. John doesn't believe him, and decides to lay down the ground rules. He says #1: Marlena is not to be hurt and #2: Tony is not to feel anything about his wife. Tony warns John to control the green eyed monster. John warns him to listen to what he said or the twins will lose the father that they just found. John takes off and once alone, Tony tells "bro" they're playing this game by his rules, not John's… At Basic Black, John arrives and Marlena walks in right behind him. John tells her about seeing Tony and that he tried to make a truce with him for her sake and for the twins, but things didn't go so well. She tells him that she hopes they didn't have another sword fight. He chuckles and tells her no. She tells him about her visit with the twins and hoping things will work out in time. Cassie is standing in the doorway and overheard her say that and says she can start now. She asks Marlena if they could still have that late breakfast together, "Mom". Marlena is thrilled until Cassie mentions having it at Tony's. Marlena doesn't think that's such a good idea, but John disagrees and tells them to have a good time. Marlena agrees and after she and Cassie have left, tells himself "damn, damn, damn"...just as Kate walks in. He tells her about Tony and Marlena being the twins parents and Marlena's heading to the "lions den", with his blessing. Kate inquires if John has investigated Tony, knowing his ex-cop background. He agrees and asks her to keep it from Marlena. Kate's secretary buzzes in that she has a visitor and Kate exits to find Roman waiting for her in the lobby. He apologizes for running out on her earlier and she tells him she was only teasing him about a wedding and thought he liked playing games. He tells her he does, but his way as he grabs her into a big kiss. A black man watches from behind a plant and has a big smile on his face. Roman suggests they leave, but Kate tells him they can go to her office and lock the door… Back at the DiMera mansion, the two men Tony was meeting with leave. They leave saying they'll contact him when "it's" over. Rex comes to the door just as they've left and when he questions who they were, Tony tells him they are accountants, tax season. Rex shrugs it off and Tony questions where Cassie is and Rex tells him that she's with Marlena. Listening to Tony talking about how Marlena is the most caring, unselfish woman, Rex tells Tony he know that he loves her. The two sit at the chess board and Tony explains that Marlena is married to John Black and doesn't trust him in lieu of everything his father did to her. There's no point in loving a woman who can't return his affection and therefore there is no point in him answering the question. Cassie and Marlena show up, and Tony thanks Marlena for coming. Tony sends Rex to tell cook they're ready to eat and Cassie offers to hang up Marlena's coat. Marlena tells Tony that it was John's suggestion she come and Tony feels they have to work together to make the twins feel loved. Tony agrees and says they should work together to do what is best for the twins… Once again at Basic Black, the strange black man enters John's office saying this place is alright and thought John was expecting him. John doesn't know him, but his eyebrow raises as the man says the magic words. "I have what you need to take Tony DiMera down". Freeze frame on John's face as that statement is said...moreless

    PREVIEW: Shawn is released and rushes to find Belle; Jennfier stops the presses with word of Larry's confession. SUMMARY: At the DiMera, mansion, we return to Marlena and Tony telling the twins that they're their parents. Belle and Brady walk in and overhear from the foyer. John explains that they were conceived in a lab and that on the island, Marlena remembered giving birth to the twins, and it appears that Tony is their father. Marlena reminds them that she once had a strong maternal sense towards them from the first time she saw them in the Brady garage. Tony promises Cassie and Rex that they are part of the family they've always longed for, but Cassie thinks they can't be a family because Tony and Marlena aren't married. Marlena rationalizes this notion and attempts to explain that there is more to being a family than just a marriage and she tells the twins they have a place in her family. Rex says that can't be because the two of them don't even like each other. Tony disagrees, he says he likes their mother very much. John also tells the twins that he knows he was harsh with them at first, but that's because his focus has been on protecting his family and that's why he's acted in the way he has to them, but in lieu of this news, he's willing to reevaluate their relationship. Cassie snaps at John and tells him "too little, too late". She then says they will never have enough love in their hearts for her and Rex because they only love Belle and Brady and will only feel contempt for them. John tells Cassie that he knows how she feels because he felt the same way when he came to Salem with no memory and no one to care for him. He says that he resisted love from others and asks her not to do the same. He tells her that the most wonderful mother in the whole world is standing right there and he suggests to Cassie that she let Marlena do that. Brady walks over and hugs Rex and welcomes him to the family. He stands in front of Cassie and she cries. Marlena hugs Belle while Rex asks Tony if he's sure about this. Marlena tries to help the situation and tells them that when she remembered their birth, a cloaked figure took them away on a boat and she screamed for them. Everyone watches as Marlena remembers and Rex and Cassie can see Marlena's pain, and the love she feels for them. Tony and John ask Marlena if when they found her on the cliff, if that was the memory she was having. She says yes. She remembers calling out, but forgot about it until now. She stands up and Rex goes to her open arms. Cassie is unsure and watches. She finally rushes into Marlena's arms in tears and calls her mom. Marlena assures her everything will be alright. Belle is having a hard time with this and runs out. Brady privately tells John that he is impressed that he is taking this so well and John says he'll accept the twins for Marlena's sake, but still vows to bring down Tony… At the police station, Bo and Hope are visiting Shawn celebrating the news of Larry's confession when suddenly DA Palmer bursts in, furious that his "no visitors" order has been defied. Bo and Palmer go head to head, and Palmer accuses the Brady's of running the department single handedly, which he vows to bring to and end. Bo tells Palmer a.k.a. the "little man" that his loud mouth and arrogance prevails. Hope and Shawn try to keep Bo calm as Palmer shouts in Bo's face telling him to hit him. Abe and Roman walk in and Abe tells them both to shut up. They tell them that they have retrieved the murder weapon and the lab just confirmed it. Palmer thinks this is great news, just what they need to charge Shawn. When asked where they found it, they say it was right where Larry said it would be. Palmer accuses the Brady's of covering up again and Roman tells Palmer to back down. Abe pulls both Palmer and Roman into the hall to talk. Alone in the visiting room, Hope and Shawn hug as Bo takes in Palmer's reaction. Bo overhears Roman going to bat for Shawn and is touched. Palmer returns to the visiting room and tells Shawn he's free to go. Bo tells Roman he overheard him with Palmer in the hall and although still upset with him, he appreciated it. Shawn tells his parents he'll see them at home later as he's anxious to see Zack.. There's someone else he's got to see right now. Hope winks at Bo and tells him ok. Shawn just walks out, big smile on his face… Shawn rushes to the dorm room, and he is standing outside of Belle's room. He remembers their discussion in the visiting room before knocking softly. He receives no response and he walks into the dark room and sees Belle is asleep. He quietly walks over to her bed and kisses her hair. Mimi jumps up as he falls to the floor! She says that she has a nasty cold because her immune system was down because of worrying about him and asks if he's really there? Mimi just keeps rambling on and finally hugs him. She tells him her coughing was keeping her little brother up all night, and she thought Belle is in Paris, so that's why she's in her room. She continues rambling. Even Shawn laughs, saying it's good to be around her and laughing again. The two friends hug. Mimi's cell phone rings and it's Belle. She doesn't tell Belle about Shawn, she suggests Belle come to the dorm and talk, but Belle tells her she's got a lot of thinking to do and is going for a walk along the pier. Mimi hangs up and tells Shawn, who rushes off to the pier as well… Bo and Hope return home as the clean up crew is replacing their broken window. The furniture is draped with cloths and the foreman tells him they'll be done soon. Bo and Hope go back outside. Bo suggests they go somewhere else, but Hope says that she knows she has to work through it and Larry's not driving her out of her own home. Bo suggests she tell him what happened and they'll work through it together. They walk back inside and the crew leaves, saying they'll be back tomorrow to finish up. Hope says she is going to get some clean clothes to take back to the pub for the night. Bo suggests they stay there, but frantic, Hope says no. Bo thinks they should spend the night in their own bed and try to expel her demons with Larry. Bo wants to fill her mind with happy memories and carries her upstairs... At the Salem Spectator, Jack and Jennifer are desperately trying to find a spin on Shawn's story to help him with public opinion. Jennifer suggests to Jack that they point out how he saved his mother and girlfriend's lives. Harold interrupts and brings Jennifer the mail and she finds a letter from her father, saying he's sent her a surprise and he hopes she will be home to receive it because it should arrive soon. They just hope it's good news… Later, they are still hard at work when Harold answers the phone and comes rushing into Jennifer's office and trips over the wastebasket in the process! He has come to tell her that there is breaking news at the police station. Jennifer picks up the phone and learns new evidence came in and Shawn is free because Larry has confessed to Colin's murder. Jennifer calls for a staff meeting and orders them to "STOP THE PRESSES!" Jack teases her about her always wanting to say that as they focus on re-doing the front page. Jennifer issues assignments and she sends Harold to the police station for the full story. Jack asks Jennifer for something and she kisses him on the cheek, willing to get him anything he wants. The two share a big kiss right on the lips as he types away like crazy. Later, the story is off to the presses. Jennifer sits on Jack's lap saying that they can't go home until the papers hit the street. Jack says that's OK and he closes the blinds, locks the door and turns off the light as they fall to the floor. We hear Jennifer saying, "Oh Jack" as the scene closes… Meanwhile, back inside the DiMera mansion, Tony smiles at Cassie and Rex and promises to always take good care of his family. Marlena smiles while looking at the twins as well, but looks up to find Tony smiling at her when he said that he will always take good care of his family and her smile falls and freeze frame and fade…moreless

    PREVIEW Shawn's day in court is disrupted by an outburst; Victor visits Larry in jail and blackmails him into a confession; Nicole reacts to Sami and Brandon's news. SUMMARY At Sami's apartment, Nicole shows up there looking for her brother. Sami says Brandon is at home – he has moved in with her. Nicole loses it and goes off, and says this is the worst idea Brandon has ever had! Lucas comes around the corner and agrees with Nicole. Sami tells him to mind his own business, but Lucas says this effects him because it effects Will, who is at an impressionable age. Brandon comes out and calms down Sami and states that they need to talk rationally with Lucas. Sami refuses but Brandon pulls her aside and convinces her. Sami says she will do this for him only. Lucas wants to know if they asked Will about this before they moved in together? Sami tells him that she doesn't have to ask his permission because she is his mother. Brandon tells Lucas to come inside to talk to Sami and he and Nicole will talk in the hall. Lucas comes inside and the two exchange some ugly words and Lucas tells her that Brandon doesn't really love her. He then threatens to take Will from her again. She warns him not to even think about trying that! Lucas says that Will is now old enough to pick which parent he wants to live with, and they both know who he would pick! The two continue to go back and forth, and Lucas says he is going to lay some ground rules which Sami will follow or else. Lucas tells her that number one is he doesn't want Will calling Brandon dad and he can't act like a father figure to Will. Sami refuses, and then flaunts in Lucas' face that one day Brandon will be Will's stepfather. Lucas laughs and tells Sami that she is pathetic if she thinks Brandon will ever marry her. Sami tells Lucas to get out, and starts throwing things at him. He doesn't leave at first, but more things go flying through the air. He eventually leaves… Meanwhile, in the hallway, Brandon talks with Nicole. She tells Brandon that she thinks Sami is manipulating and controlling him, but he says that she is the one being controlled and manipulated. Nicole whines and Brandon asks her what is wrong now? Nicole tells him that she is as good as dead. Brandon asks Nicole not to talk like that, and he asks what did Victor do to her? Nicole covers and says that Victor got mad at her for running off to the bars, and he was right to do so. She then says that Victor didn't marry her so that she could go boozing at trashy bars, and it is time she grows up. They then see Sami chase Lucas out, and Nicole tells Brandon to get back to his girlfriend because she has to get home. Nicole leaves, and Sami and Brandon go back inside. Sami then begs Brandon never to leave her alone with Lucas again because she hates him. Brandon says that he can't worry about Lucas right now because Nicole is in a bad place. Sami tries to distract him and she suggests they focus on one another. Sami begins telling Brandon how good it will be for Will having him here and showing him what a normal family is like. She tells Brandon maybe they should make things official. Brandon asks if she is talking about what he thinks she is talking about?

Sami is obviously hurt, but tells him that she understands… Nicole is waiting for the elevator in the hallway and runs into Lucas. He wonders why she isn't in a better mood. He tells her he will help her if he can, so she asks him to lend her some change. He isn't sure what is going on, but digs into his pocket and hands her a penny, and then snaps that is all she is worth. Nicole says she will flip the coin and that will decide whether she should stay or run. The coin says she should stay, so she decides to turn herself in, and she gets into the elevator. She leaves behind a very confused Lucas… Over at the police station, Victor shows up and says he wants to visit Larry. Larry wonders what he wants, but Victor just tells him that he wants him to help him solve the murder of Colin Murphy. Larry says everyone knows that it was Shawn that killed Colin. Victor snaps at Larry and tells him to shut up and listen to what he has to say. He shows Larry the bullet shell with Bo's name on it, and he says he knows what his plan was. He asks Larry how the plan went so wrong? Larry admits Colin was supposed to kill Bo for him, but he was an "incompetent hit man". Victor then taunts Larry with the list of charges against him. Larry tells him that he is beginning to feel a sense of day-ja-vous. Larry tells him the last time he visited him in jail, he made him take the wrap for a crime he didn't commit. But he asks Victor what wants him to take the fall for this time? Victor tells him to guess, and Larry knows what Victor wants. Larry tells Victor that he refuses to put his ass on death row to save Shawn Douglas. Victor tells him to do exactly what he says or else he will have him off'd in prison – and he knows he can do it. Victor then gives Larry instructions on what exactly what to say to the police… Meanwhile, Lexie shows up with some food for Abe. He is not in a good mood because Shawn is facing a life sentence. The two talk and Lexie lets her false alarm last night slip, and it worries Abe. She says they were just braxton-hicks contractions, and that she was checked out. Abe makes her promise to tell him if this ever happens again. Lexie tries to convince him to stop worrying about her. An officer comes in and says she needs to talk to Abe alone and Lexie heads home. The officer tells him about Larry Welch's visitor. Abe heads down to the cells and asks Victor what he wants with Larry?

The hearing begins, and the judge tells Shawn that he is charged with the murder of Colin Murphy and how does he plead? Shawn says nothing. Shawn thinks about killing Colin, and Mickey tries to persuade him to change his mind. Shawn refuses, so Mickey enters a plea of guilty. Belle suddenly stands up and says, "Shawn, no!" Grandpa Shawn turns and gives Roman a nasty. Kate just holds Roman's hand, letting him know to ignore it. Belle then begins pleading to Shawn and begging him to plead not guilty. The judge threatens to throw Belle out if she does not stop this. She is convinced she can save him and she continues to plead with Shawn, but the judge has her taken out. Caroline and Jennifer go out to check on Belle. Shawn is asked once again if he wants to plead guilty? He turns and looks at his parents, stands up, and changes his plea to not guilty. The entire courtroom is relieved. The judge tells council to make their pleas and DA Palmer says that bail should be denied because he is a danger to the community as well as himself, and he is a flight risk because of favoritism in the police department. Bo stands up and yells that they cannot keep his son in jail! Bo is warned to sit down, or he will be joining Miss Black outside and Hope gets him to sit down. DA Palmer then continues that Shawn is a danger because he is a drug addict. Mickey tries to argue that Shawn didn't know what he was taking were dangerous but the judge agrees with the DA and decides to deny bail. Shawn is taken out, and the DA decides that Shawn will get no visitors other than his lawyer. Bo is furious and tries to attack Palmer. Roman gets Bo to calm down, but Bo refuses to take advice from him. Bo tells him if he had talked to Shawn first before arresting him then he would have realized Shawn was innocent. He tells him about Shawn's statement about shooting Colin in the back, and Roman says that's great, he is innocent. But the two get into a huge fight over Roman's betrayal of his family. Roman offers to help clear Shawn, but Bo says he doesn't want his help. However, Hope accepts it because the more help they get the better off Shawn is… Rex goes outside to tell Bell the news and Cassie wants to stay back to see Shawn, but he drags Cassie with him. Outside the courtroom, Belle is crying to Caroline and Jennifer that Shawn is in trouble and she couldn't help him. Just then, Rex comes out and tells Belle that she did help Shawn - he changed his plea to not guilty. Belle, Jennifer and Caroline are all relieved, and Caroline tells Belle that she did good. The three hug and Cassie looks very annoyed. Belle convinces Caroline and Jennifer to go back inside, she is OK now. Rex tells Belle that what she did was very brave. She says she wasn't trying to be brave. Belle then tells Cassie that she will probably be called to testify, so she needs to be very careful about what she says. Cassie says she will help Shawn any way she can. The head back inside the courtroom and Belle sees Shawn as he is being taken away, and she tells Shawn to remember that she loves him. Belle hugs Shawn, and once again, Cassie is extremely annoyed. Shawn does not take his eyes off of Belle and he tells her that it will be okay, and he is dragged off. He is still focused completely on Belle. Bo stops the cops and tells Shawn that he will find the real killer. Hope hugs Shawn and says she loves him.

SUMMARY At the DiMera compound, Tony has the tower room set up like it was when Marlena was held there. Marlena looks all around and says that something very important happened here. John is obviously uncomfortable with this idea, but Tony refuses to let him disrupt what is going to happen. Marlena tells them that she will do whatever it takes to remember what happened to her. Marlena gets up on the bed and lays down (almost looks like a hospital bed) and before long, she begins to have memory flashes. She remembers being in that very bed the night of a terrible storm and seeing a doctor at the end of her bed as she is in a fetal position, giving birth to the twins! Dr. Rolf was the doctor who was there and encouraged her to deliver them (although at this point, Marlena makes no reference that she knows who the DR is). As she is telling John and Tony about this, Tony grabs Marlena's hand and says, "You gave birth to the twins here. Our babies. Yours and mine"… Meanwhile, in Salem, at Jack and Jennifer's, Jack is laying on Jennifer's bed looking at a picture of Abby. He soon finds that Jennifer saved their wedding album, because he sees it lying on the table. He is about to look at it when Jennifer walks into the bedroom in a long, white, sexy nightgown. The two begin kissing and Jack takes off that nightgown. The two kiss some more and end up on the bed, and the two make love. In the after glow, they reminisce about their wedding day. Jennifer says she just recently found the wedding album in the attic, which is where she packed it away. Jack tells her that he never stopped loving her. She tells him that the person she was when she married him was crazy about him, but now she is deeply in love with the man that she married. Jack is flattered by this and he tells her he has a surprise. He pulls out her wedding ring. He says she sent it back to him after their divorce was final, but he kept it. He tells her that he would like for her to wear it again, until he gets her a new ring for their new life. He puts the ring on her finger and they start kissing again… Over at Green Mountain Lodge, Chloe and Brady return after having come from the Wesley house. Chloe states that she is tired, and she also says she feels sad because of what happened at the house. She then says that things have changed between her and Nancy for the better, and that she knows that Nancy wouldn't have given her up if she was given a choice, it was all her grandfather. Brady wants to help Chloe take her mind off of that and he convinces her to join him in the hot tub. The two share a very romantic evening in the hot tub, where Brady sings to Chloe. Later, Brady carries Chloe to bed. Once Chloe falls asleep, Brady says a prayer for Chloe to live… Over at the hospital, Bo leaves and tells Shawn to rest.

Meanwhile, Kate is still trying to be there for Roman. She again asks him if he wants to talk? Roman finally tells Kate that he over heard Shawn confessing to Bo about killing Colin. Roman tells her that he has to arrest Shawn - because it is his job. Kate is baffled by this news that Shawn could be a murderer and she tells Roman that the choice he has to make is a difficult one, and she doesn't know if she could make it if she were in his place. He knows what he has to do and he goes to find Shawn. Once he gets to Shawn's room, he can't find Shawn anywhere… He soon learns Shawn went home and all hell has broken loose and he heads out... Back at the Brady house, Larry comes to in the basement where he passed out and Hope remains unconscious upstairs and Belle grows weaker by the minute. Bo gets home and talks to the cops watching the house. As he is talking to them, Larry sneaks through the bushes, but makes a little shuffle noise. Bo is ready to head inside, he is worried as the cops said all has been quiet and they explain that a teenage girl with blonde hair went inside a while ago. Bo figures out that it was Belle and really worries because Hope isn't answering the phone. He is headed to go inside just as he sees Larry head into the sewer. Bo follows Larry down into the sewers, just as Shawn arrives home to find the cops banging on the door. They explain the door is locked and he gets out his keys but sees that the lock has been rigged to stay shut. Shawn breaks the living room window open and goes inside. He sees his mom passed out and Belle not far behind. He wonders what Belle is doing there and she tells him there is carbon monoxide in the house. The cops eventually break down the door, and he tells them they have to get them out of there. The cops take Hope and carry her out and Shawn tries to break Belle free and ends up breaking the railing to free the handcuffs and he picks her up and walks out the front door with her… Once outside, the medics are there and Belle and Hope are given oxygen, and Shawn asks Belle what she is doing here? She tells him all about Larry, and that she loves him. Hope has come to and tells Shawn that she loves him too. Shawn holds both Belle and Hope's hands as the paramedics take care of them. Shawn realizes it's Belle and he asks her how she got here, and why didn't she stay in Paris? She explains that Rex came with her and convinced her to come home and face her problems. Belle says she couldn't stay away, she had to come home to him, even if he kept turning away from him… Bo chases Larry around the sewers, and eventually corners him and the two struggle. Larry pulls a gun, but Bo gets the upper-hand and beats Larry to a pulp, trying to knock him out. Larry taunts Bo and tells him that Hope is dead because of the carbon monoxide he let into the house. Back outside the Brady house, Bo brings Larry up the driveway and asks the other cops to book him. He then sees Hope and goes to her, very relieved that she is alive. Not long after this, Roman gets there just as Larry is taken off. Bo tells Belle how sorry he is that she got caught up in this mess. She just tells him that she couldn't stay away from Shawn. Shawn grabs and holds her tight, and Roman looks on, worried about what he has to do. Roman approaches Shawn and tells him he is under arrest for the murder of Dr. Colin Murphy.

Not wanting either of them to go out, she tells them she'll call Maggie. Bo calls and tells Hope about the fact that the fingerprints on the matchbook were Larry's and he says that he has tightened the security around the house and not to worry. Shawn in the meantime, has taken some more pills. When Bo asks Hope what is wrong, she tells him that she thinks they're coming down with the flu. Bo asks to speak with Shawn and he tells him that he wants him to come down to the station, now, to clear something up… Back again at the police station, Shawn arrives to see Bo. He takes another pill before going in. Roman and Bo take him into Abe's office to ask him questions about Colin's murder. Bo tells Shawn about the tuxedo stud they found, and they ask him how it was ripped out of his shirt? Shawn flashes back to his struggle with Colin, and we see that during this time, the stud fell off of his shirt and to the ground. Shawn doesn't say anything, he just stands there. Bo asks Roman for a minute alone with Shawn and after Roman leaves, he pleads with Shawn to tell him the truth. Grabbing his leather jacket and holding his face, he continues to plead that the quieter he is, the worse it looks for him. Bo begs Shawn to tell him the truth about the night Colin was murdered because he is under suspicion now! Shawn asks for a minute to himself and Bo agrees, walking to the other side of the room for some coffee and Roman comes back in. Shawn takes some more pills – in fact, he takes the rest of the bottle… Bo is upset that Roman called the DA and Abe, but Roman knows covering up doesn't help anyone. Bo angrily says that his son had no reason to kill Colin Murphy, and says that he still thinks it was DiMera's doing. Shawn jumps in and asks them to stop fighting, he will tell them everything. Cassie and Rex rush in just as Shawn says this and Cassie tells him not to do it! Shawn tells Cassie thanks for everything, but he has to get it out in the open. Cassie tells him again not to say anything! Shawn suddenly starts ranting that Roman wants him to be the murderer so they can wrap up the case. They all just look at Shawn, not believing what they're hearing and seeing because next Shawn throws the suspect board to the ground! Bo tries to calm him, but Shawn eventually collapses right into Bo's arms… Meanwhile, back over at the Brady House, Hope is in the driveway and she yells goodbye to Gran as Maggie is driving her home. Belle then walks up the driveway, and Hope is still a little out of it, but she realizes it's Belle and they talk in the driveway. Larry is hiding in the bushes and he overhears Hope telling Belle about the matchbook that Bo found and they know that Larry is still alive. Belle can tell that Hope isn't feeling well and suggests they go inside. Hope agrees as the two walk inside. Larry can't believe about Bo finding the matchbook and his smoking habit is helping his plan go up in smoke. He sneaks away – and straight into the Brady basement… Upstairs, Hope and Belle talk about Shawn. Hope tells Belle that she's sorry about all the problems she and Shawn have been going through. Hope tells her that Shawn was so upset when he missed her at the airport…Belle is happy to hear this, saying she knew Shawn didn't want to break up with her…As the two of them talk some more, Hope is still trying to figure out why they had broken up in the first place. Belle tells her that she wonders the same thing, but Hope tell her that Shawn told her they it was a mutual decision for him and Belle to give each other space. Belle gets upset, denying her wanting space. Hope offers to talk to Shawn for Belle, but Belle says that won't help. She explains that for some reason Shawn is pushing her away and punishing himself. She says that is why she came back to Salem – to try and find the reason why Shawn has been pushing her away and why he feels he doesn't deserve her. Hope tells Belle she loves her very much and is proud of both her and Shawn. She tells her that she wants to help and promises not to be defensive of her son. She tells him that if has hurt her, she wants to know. Hope is starting to feel dizzy again and Belle asks about her headache. She offers to leave, but Hope says she wants her to stay. She explains that Zack is with Doug and Julie and asks Belle if she would mind getting her some antacid. Belle heads upstairs and Hope, holding her stomach, struggles up out of the chair. She sees a man in blur across the room. She thinks it's one of the cops and tells him she was feeling sick. It's actually Larry, and he approaches her and says, "sick?" Hope freaks, but knows there are police guarding the house. This time she doesn't have the strength to approach him, and he grabs her by the wrists as she falls to her knees. She says that she isn't crazy, he is alive. He tells her it's him, in the flesh as he strokes his face with her hands…moreless

    PREVIEW: Bo and Hope rush home after a call from Alice; a letter from Stefano is unearthed on the island. SUMMARY: **from** Shawn returns from the airport and takes another pill to ease the pain of missing Belle. Alice sees him pop the pill and he covers; she senses that something is wrong and calls Bo and Hope, who are still enjoying their romantic getaway at Green Mountain Lodge. Bo sees Hope's concern and they go home. Larry, still in the basement, overhears Alice/Shawn talking and realizes Shawn is taking the poison pills. When Bo/Hope get home, Shawn loses his temper that Alice called them; they think he's so frazzled because he couldn't stop Belle from leaving. Bo gets called away to the station with urgent news about Larry; his prints were on the matchbook that Bo found, proving that Larry is indeed alive. Alice seems to be out of sorts a bit (because of the gas) and Hope tells Alice she should stay the night...

He knows what she's been going through with Shawn and thinks she already regrets leaving Salem. Belle admits he's right and is overcome with a sudden urge to return home... John/Marlena are rocked to find Tony at the island compound; Tony thinks he should be part of the search for the Twins' parentage, which displeases both of them. John/Marlena privately discuss teaming up with Tony and are interrupted when Tony returns with a letter from Stefano he found in the bedroom. It mentions the items bequeathed in the will and warns Tony to tell Marlena that the more she searches for answers from her past, the more she will wish to be back in a long and dreamless sleep. Stefano also mentions the Twins and calls them Tony's destiny, which enrages Tony because the veiled comments still lead to nowhere. Tony refuses to have his strings pulled and tears the letter to pieces. Shocked by this denouncement of Stefano, John and Marlena finally agree to form an alliance with Tony to solve the mysteries of the past... Roman/Kate are at the Tuscany bar and Roman probes about Kate's secret past with Stefano.

    PREVIEW: Tension increases between John and Marlena; Brandon asks Sami to move in with him and she accepts! SUMMARY: At the Green Mountain Lodge, Doug and Julie are in their room and Julie is in the other room putting Zack down to sleep and Doug, dressed in a tux, is on the phone and he orders candy, and roses for Julie. She comes out and she is dressed in a beautiful blue dress and tells Doug that Zack is asleep, poor little guy, he's coming down with a cold. The two of them discuss that they are glad that they are in the bridal suite, and they had plans to go out to celebrate, but since Zack is sick, they decide to stay in and have their own Valentines Day celebration. Julie tells Doug how much she loves him and how jealous her friends are of their marriage. She says their friend Roberta got Trivets for Valentines Day because her husband doesn't "get it" like Doug does. They happily recall other Valentines Day celebrations around the world they've celebrated. He tells her his favorite was in Salem in her apartment when he kissed her for the first time. She quickly tells him that wasn't Valentines Day, but he tells her that everyday with her is Valentines Day. The two of them go to kiss and suddenly Zack starts crying from the other room. Julie goes to check on him and when she comes back, she tells Doug that she rubbed his little back for about five seconds and he went back to sleep again. She says he dropped his favorite stuffed animal and that was what woke him up. Doug tells her that he remembers how devastated Hope was when she lost her Winnie the Pooh at that age. Julie listens, trying not to laugh. Doug sees that she's holding back and asks her why, and she tells him that Hope's Pooh had a "Hoover Accident" She explains that it's head got sucked in and burned up the vacuum cleaner as she demonstrates by a slash across the throat saying it got decapitated. Gran and Julie decided not to tell Doug because he is such a blabber and would have told Hope. They toast and go to kiss again and this time there is a knock on the door. Doug goes to answer it and it's room service with dinner for two, flowers and chocolates. She looks at him and he tells her it's for the most beautiful girl in the world. The two look very lovingly into each others eyes… Also at The Green Mountain Lodge (although at this point, no reference is made that that is where they are…) Brady and Chloe come inside, as they had just been skiing and are frozen. Brady offers to warm Chloe up and they cuddle with each other. She tells him she has a gift for him and she gives him a CD containing love songs she's singing for him. They begin dancing and kissing and make love. Later, they are cuddling in bed and the two of them recite a poem written by William Blake: To see a world in a grain of sand And heaven in a wild flower, Hold infinity in the palm of your hand And eternity in an hour The two start kissing again… Back in Salem, Sami and Brandon arrive at Tuscany for dinner, see the place is packed and Sami gives Brandon a hard time for not making reservations. Maggie approaches them and says she will try to find a table for them, and tells them to enjoy a drink on the house. They sit at the bar and Sami tells Brandon she will make sandwiches at Brandon's if they can't get in. Maggie returns, and whispers to them that she snagged a table for them. She seats them just as Mickey comes in with a bouquet of flowers and wishes Maggie a Happy Anniversary… Once Sami and Brandon are seated, Sami watches enviously as Mickey tells Maggie how much he loves her. He tells her he has arranged for her to have the night off. He escorts her to a reserved table and she sees that it is reserved for them. The two of them discuss the 25 years they have been together, while Sami watches, happily. Maggie and Mickey discuss the odds of Sami and Brandon staying together and she reminds him how so many people thought the same thing about them 25 years ago… Back at Sami and Brandon's table, Sami tells Brandon she is unsure why he brought her here? Perhaps to dump her? He tells her he chose it as because reminded him of their time in Italy. She tells him that she has a gift for him, but it isn't something you can find in a store. Brandon looks a little nervous as she pulls a plastic baggie out of her purse. She assures him that it is nothing illegal, as she tells him she's an Irish girl and it's a four leafed clover she got when she was a little girl. Feeling like she got luck out of the clover, she wanted to give it to him for good luck, too. She then tells him he's the man she's been waiting her whole life for. He kisses her and thanks her. He then tells her that he has all the luck he needs… A little later, they have finished their dinner and Brandon tells her he hopes she saved room for dessert. She tells him she is full, but Maggie comes by and Brandon tells him that they will have the "special" for dessert. Sami is confused because she saw Brandon and Maggie sort of "signal" each other when he ordered that. Turns out the "special" for dessert is a bowl of candy conversation hearts. Sami is confused, "this is the special?" Since she has just stated that she was full, she just politely nibbles on one of them. Brandon stops her mid-way and tells her she has to read the hearts. She is still confused and she picks one up, "be mine". She eats in and picks up the next one, "be mine". She wonders if they all say "be mine"? Brandon challenges her to find one that doesn't say "be mine" and she starts picking through the bowl, but they all say "be mine". She keeps digging and she finds a key in the middle of the hearts…!!! She looks confused, but Brandon asks her to move in with him! Once past the shock, Sami jumps up and lands on Brandon's lap, saying "YES!!" Maggie and Mickey watch from their table, and she tells him that she helped Brandon when he came by earlier. Mickey comments that Sami and Brandon would be living in sin, but Maggie tells him it's 2003 and not the dark ages. She tells him that she knows Roman will be OK with it and Maggie stands up and starts an applause. Sami then realizes and it completely embarrassed and quickly returns to her seat. She tells him she is excited and how she will cook and clean for him and that she hopes he won't regret the decision… On the DiMeria Island, John strokes Marlena's face as she is sleeping and he tries to wake her up as we hear a mans muffled voice telling her to sleep. She finally wakes up and she sees that John has decorated the room with candles. John tells her Happy Valentines Day. He tells her he wants to fix them some dinner and he has brought some filet mignon steaks for them. She wonders how? But he tells her that it is the miracle of dry ice. The two talk and they begin to make love. Later, John offers to start dinner. He has a small bottle of champagne and they toast each other. He then gives her a beautiful Valentines Day card. She then reminds him why they're there – to get to the truth. He hands her some pictures, she looks at them – one of Eric and Sami and one of Belle and Brady. She looks at them and John tells her that if it turns out that Cassie and Rex are her children too, that it will be an incredible gift to them. She hugs him in appreciation. John holds her tight, promising to get at the truth. He tells her he does want to find the truth and face it together. Later he has grilled their filets over the fire and the two start kissing again. Suddenly, they hear a noise in the other room. Marlena freaks out and John tells her they are not alone…moreless

    PREVIEW: Bo whisks Hope away for a romantic Valentine's weekend; Brandon tells Lexie he can no longer be her friend. SUMMARY: At the Police Department, Bo and Roman discuss the case and try and trace the tuxedo stud back to Larry. Roman tells Bo that there are many on the force that do not believe that Larry is alive, and that Bo is only trying to divert attention from the real killer. Bo says that is ludicrous, and he wants to know who came up with this idea? Roman says it was the DA, and he's pressuring the commissioner not to put too many officers on the search for Larry Welch. Bo vows to find Larry and says that he will throw him in prison and that will prove he is alive! Abe is in his office and Sami barges in, telling him that Lexie needs him right now. He wonders what she is up to, but she covers and says that she has learned that Larry may still be alive and tries to persuade Abe that Larry may come after her. Abe suddenly gets a call from a cop that is watching his house. Abe has given them orders to tell him if Lexie has any visitors and tells him that Brandon Walker has just arrived. Abe rushes out, leaving Sami standing there... Meanwhile, at the Carver House, Brandon drops by, unannounced, and Lexie isn't sure what to think of his visit. He tells her that he has decided to respect her wishes and is going to lay off Abe. She is happy to hear that but isn't happy with his just dropping by. She hopes that they can be friends again and asks him how Sami will feel about all this. Brandon says she will just have to accept it because he and Lexie have a "connection", and he looks down at her stomach as he says this. She tells him that she doesn't like the way he said that or the fact that he looked down at her "baby" when he did. He insists that she's seeing things and she tells him that he has no connection with her baby. Brandon tells her to calm down, she is crazy just as Abe comes in wanting to know what is going on. Brandon tells Abe that he won't bother them anymore, and he leaves. Once alone, Abe asks Lexie what he wanted and she tells him that Brandon told her that he is going to quit the "I hate Abe" routine, but Abe doesn't believe him. He goes on about how he has tried with Brandon and he should get over it and quit blaming him for his dad's behavior and his mother falling in love with him. Lexie tells him that she doesn't want to talk about this anymore and Abe pulls out a Valentine's gift for her. It's a heart shaped ring with a place in the center for the baby's birthstone. She feels bad because she has nothing for him, but he tells her that in a few months, she will give him the greatest gift of all… Back at Brandon's loft, he has come home and Sami comes by, asking how it went with Lexie. He tells her what he told Lexie and Sami is impressed. Brandon asks why she is there and to stop pushing him. She wants to talk and he tells her she should have waited for him to call her. He then tells her that he can't promise that he won't see Lexie again and Sami wonders where does that leave them? They are interrupted by Lexie calling, and she tells Brandon to leave her alone. The baby is not his and for him to stay away from her, he is no longer welcome at her house. Sami isn't thrilled to learn that was Lexie on the phone and he asks her to leave. But Sami says she is sorry for being sarcastic about Lexie. Sami then begins talking about how much he turns her on and how much she needs him and they kiss… Over at the Hartley House, Shawn apologizes to Mimi and she urges him to work it out with Belle. She says she loves both of them and they hug. Belle and Rex come in and she asks what is going on. Belle and Shawn are both uncomfortable so Shawn leaves. Belle then tells Mimi and Rex that she still has packing to do, so they leave. Once outside, Mimi tells Rex she needs his…they have work to do before Belle leaves, she grabs him by the hand and they walk off… Later on, Mimi and Belle walk up at Lookout Point and Belle wonders why they're there. Mimi tells her that she has a gift for her. Just then, Shawn and Rex pull up in Shawn's truck and Belle realizes what they're up to. Mimi walks away as Rex and Shawn get out of the truck and walk over to Belle. Mimi honks her horn and Rex takes off, leaving Belle and Shawn alone. They realize what has happened and he tells her not to worry, he will give her a ride back. They get into the truck and Shawn realizes that Rex took his keys. They realize they're stuck there and Belle realizes where they are – they're in the spot where Shawn built the snowman last year. Belle is uneasy and gets back into the truck, but cannot even turn and look at Shawn. When she is turned away, Shawn takes another pill. She expresses her wish that they could go back in time, but he quickly tells her that they can't go back in time as he grabs her and starts shaking her, telling her to stop! She asks, "stop what, what am I doing?" He tells her to stop loving him. Belle is scared and can see that there is something terribly wrong. He covers and tells her that Larry might still be alive and he is worried about his mom. She says she is sorry and goes to hug him. He backs off, yelling that Larry has to die. Belle is very frightened of him and tries to run off. He tries to stop her but she keeps going… Belle is back at the dorm and Rex comes by. She tells him that she is furious with him and Mimi for what they did. She tells him that Shawn has become a different person, and he is scaring her. She says this man is not the Shawn she fell in love with… Mimi goes back to Lookout Point and sees Shawn and he is upset with her as well. He tells her about Belle running off and flagging a bus at the bottom of the hill. Mimi apologizes. She gives him his keys and he breaks down, telling Mimi that he has lost Belle. Mimi doesn't understand what he is going on about and he tells her to stay away from him. She notices his hands shaking and he tells her to just leave… Over at the Brady House, Hope is asleep on the sofa when there is a knock at the door. She opens it to see a bouquet of roses and Bo's voice saying "Happy Valentine's Day Fancy Face". She tells him he shouldn't have, and the flowers lower and it's Larry! He comes right on in, taunting her. She tells him it isn't real – he is dead. He pulls out a gun and tells her that he is alive and real. He says that she is his for life and pulls her into a kiss after asking her to be his valentine. Hope is scared just as Bo rushes in, yelling for him to let her go as Larry turns and shoots him. Hope freaks out and yells, "NO!". Cut to Bo putting a wet rag on Hope's forehead and she jumps up, wondering if Bo is OK. He is a little unsure what she's worried about, and she tells him that Larry shot him. Bo then tells her she was just dreaming. She tells him about it and says that Larry was right, he will always be with her and will never go away. Bo holds her. Bo tries to calm her fears, telling her if she going to beat this, she must keep the faith and keep fighting, but she is scared and not sure if she can. Bo says he knows how… In the meantime, Larry is in the sewers drawing on a map as rats squeak in the background. He says that it's time this sewer rat pays a visit to the happy home… Later, Roman drops by the Brady's, as Bo has called him over, and he assures them that he will take care of things while they are gone. Hope is surprised to learn that Bo has made arrangements for them to go to Green Mountain Lodge for a few days. He has even invited Doug and Julie along to watch after Zack. Hope is excited by this and Roman is going to leave. Hope thanks him for looking after her. Outside, Roman talks to one of the cops as Larry listens through the sewers. After Roman has left, Larry crawls out of his manhole, saying "Honey, I'm Home"… Back inside, Bo calls Shawn to tell him they are leaving and Shawn assures him he will be okay. As Hope takes the phone to talk to him, we see Larry in the basement listening through the furnace vent. Bo hurries her along, telling her that Doug and Julie are waiting. They gather their things and head out. But, downstairs in the basement, Larry smiles, and says, "While you're gone Mr. & Mrs.…I'll be doing a little house keeping. When you come back, your home will be your own private HELL!"…Fade...moreless

    PREVIEW: Belle bids Salem "adieu" for Paris. SUMMARY: At the Harley house, Belle is finishing up packing for Paris. She realizes that she has too many clothes and not enough room. In the hall, Cassie runs into Shawn as she is bringing more luggage for Belle. He tells her that he is more nervous, but she insists the pills probably haven't kicked in yet. They go into Belle's room, but Belle is not sure what to think when she sees Shawn. Cassie leaves to give them some time alone. They aren't alone long when Shawn gets a call from his dad. Belle realizes it's Bo and tells Shawn she is going to get her laundry and leaves. Bo explains to Shawn about the possibility of Larry still being alive and Shawn flies off the handle. Bo tries to calm him, but Shawn says he's going to kill him, and Bo says that this is a police matter. Shawn is upset because "that will be the day" and hangs up on Bo. He then moves restlessly around the room, eventually putting his fist thru the window. Belle comes in, shocked, and wants to know what is wrong. Shawn says things are bad, really bad. Belle tries to tend to him but he backs off from her telling her to stop. She demands he go to the hospital, he probably needs stitches. He tells her no, but threatens to call 911 if he won't go with her. He agrees and they walk out. They run into Cassie in the hall and she insists she go along. Belle tells her no and tells her to call housekeeping and have their window fixed… At the Dew Drop Inn, Bo is outside, gun drawn, and outside the door, disguises his voice and says "Delivery for Larry Welch". He kicks the door down, and bursts in, but the place is as clean as a whistle. Bo looks around but realizes that Larry has taken off, as he found an open window in the bathroom. Roman shows up and wants to know what is going on. Bo tells Roman about his suspicions that Larry may be alive, tells about the planted bloody towel which was really chicken blood, about Hope's visions, and how the last time Larry turned and ran, instead of just vanishing. He tells him that he found the match book which led him to this motel. Roman wants to know why Bo didn't tell him, as this was police business. Bo tells him, "for the same reason you kept quiet about Sami taking your gun…..until you knew that she didn't kill Colin.". Roman doesn't respond to this. The room is scrubbed clean with no fingerprints anywhere. They call the manager in, who claims the man who rented the room a couple weeks ago had long blond hair and a mustache. He cannot I.D. Larry's picture, but Bo tells him he is getting an artist to come in and modify the picture. The manager agrees and leaves. Roman is still confused about why Larry is trying to make Hope think she killed Colin. Bo explains everything, and Roman and Bo wonder if maybe Larry killed Colin. Roman tells Bo he is going to call Shane and see if he can come up with a Larry/Colin connection. Larry, meanwhile, has entered the sewers, damning Bo and threatening Hope. He gloats that no one knows about him, but he knows what they are up to. He talks about the pills, deciding that if Shawn starts taking them, Hope will be watching her son self-destruct, while accusing herself of murdering Colin. He chuckles… Later, back at the police station, Bo tells Roman that he's going to have to break the news about Larry to Hope, and he just hopes she can handle it… Meanwhile, at the hospital, Craig is taking blood from Chloe, and Brady stands by. Chloe is in a depressed mood, thinking that nothing will work out for her. Craig tries to reassure her about her upcoming bone marrow transplant. She isn't convinced everything will be OK, but Craig and Brady are sure it will be. Craig takes off and Brady tries to cheer her up, and they decide to work on her list of things to do before she goes back into the hospital and is confined to isolation. The first thing is for her to say goodbye to certain people, and another is to sing her favorite arias from a stage. Brady tells her she will not have to say good bye to anyone. Belle arrives at the hospital with Shawn. Craig takes Shawn back into the ER and Belle stays back and talks with Chloe. Belle says she is worried about Shawn, but she's not going to be able to be here for him because she's going to Paris… Meanwhile, at the nurses station, Sami tries to talk to Brandon, but he is busy. She is then stopped by Lucas, who informs "Scami" that he has a lot of work for her. She objects, but he tells her he is in charge of entire hospital clerical department, and that includes her. Brenda comes up, and says that's true. Sami is not pleased by this, but just then, Kate comes by, and asks her for a number to reach Marlena. Sami tells her that she was told to contact Marlena's assistant if they needed to get a hold of her. Lucas then teases Sami about "studly" not being around, and tells Sami he wants the files of all patients in the past two years who did not have insurance. She says she is on break, and Lucas replies, yeah, he heard she that she is always on a break. Brenda tells her that she can take a break, but she must follow Mr. Roberts' orders first. Sami smirks, "Mr. Roberts…" Meanwhile, Nicole has arrived at the hospital for a check-up, and has sunglasses on. Brandon spots her and he sees that she is suffering from a major hangover. They go out on the terrace, and Brandon lectures Nicole on the mess she has made of her life. Nicole says her life is great, a dream come true! She says that she is Cinderella. He asks if Victor is Prince Charming. Or, he wonders if he more like the Beast, as is "Beauty and". Brandon presses Nicole, and he wants to know why things are strained between her and Victor. Nicole finally admits that Victor knows of her affair w Colin. She then says that Colin cashed her $5 million dollar check and she says that she is glad he's dead. Brandon asks if she killed Colin. She can't believe this and he asks about Victor. They argue more and Nicole says her life isn't any more screwed up than his, but the difference is she has the guts to admit that it was their lousy parents who left them with messed up lives. Nicole tells him that is why he's with Sami, Salem's resident psychopath. Nicole then tells him that he should run far from her! Brandon says they are talking about her, and he asks her if she is any danger from Victor. Nicole says not as long as they stay married. Brandon asks what would happen if she left Victor? She says he would never hurt her because he loves her. Brandon then asks if she was investigated by the cops for the murder, would they find anything?… In the meantime, Cassie arrives for her therapy appointment with Dr. Griffith. Brenda says he has not arrived yet, so she asks about Shawn, but Brenda has not seen him. Cassie tells her about Shawn's accident and she says that if he came into the emergency room, that's where she'll find him. Cassie takes off to find him just as Kate comes by, and bumps into Cassie. Kate introduces herself, because the two of them haven't officially met. Kate says Tony is thrilled that she may be her daughter, and she also hopes they find their mother. Cassie comes back with wanting Marlena to be their mother, and she goes into a rage about how she hates her for it. Kate tells her how she lost her own two children, being told they were dead, and how wonderful to have found them again. Cassie leaves, and Lucas is standing by and he tells Kate he overheard some of that. He tells her that he thinks he knows why she is upset. She gets when she thinks of her lost time with Austin & Billie. She says yes, those memories are painful. Kate walks off and she goes out to the terrace, where she has interrupted Nicole and Brandon before Nicole had a chance to answer Brandon. Nicole and Brandon go back inside. Kate calls Roman, telling him she wants to see him right away, and is coming to the police station… Meanwhile, Sami returns with the boxes of files to give to Lucas. She then is tempted to go listen to Brandon & Nicole on the terrace, via the intercom, but changes her mind. She decides to take her break and heads out to the stairwell… Meanwhile, outside the ER, Belle has walked off to find Sami and finds her in tears in the stairwell. The two talk and Sami tells Belle that she and Brandon had a fight and he is taking a time out. Sami tells Belle that she was right before, she has messed up every relationship she has been in. Sami says Brandon is talking with Nicole right now, and she says she has to know what they're talking about and tries to walk off. Belle stops Sami from going to spy on them, and they continue to talk about their boy problems. Sami tells Belle she is making a mistake leaving Shawn and giving Cassie a chance to sink her claws into him. Belle says that Cassie claims she doesn't like Shawn that way, but Sami says she doubts that. Belle says she can't think about Shawn right now because she has to focus on Paris. Sami says that she should follow her heart, and maybe things will work out for her and Shawn. Sami says she wants her to be happy, but she's just not convinced that her running to Paris is the right thing. The two finish their talk and Sami says she needs to go back to work, and she wishes Belle a wonderful time in Paris and to be happy. Belle tells Sami that no matter what happens with Brandon, she will be okay… Once Sami is back to work, she bumps into Brandon, and asks him to talk, but he says he has to talk to Lexie first and takes off. Lucas stops her next, saying he wants her to deliver all those files to his apartment tonight!… Meanwhile, back in the ER, Craig examines Shawn and says his pulse is racing and asks if he is on any medication. Shawn avoids answering that question by saying it just hurts like hell. Craig tells him that the anesthetic might cause a reaction if Shawn is taking anything. Shawn just tells him to give him the stitches without any. Craig does this and Shawn expresses him pain by facial expressions only. Once done, Shawn goes to walk out and runs into Brady and Chloe, who tease him about hurting himself. Brady makes a joke about if he was trying to get onto fear factor. He blows up at them both, shocking them, and then storms off… Belle returns after her talk with Sami and Cassie also shows up. Belle says her good byes to Chloe and Brady since she is leaving tomorrow. They hug… Cassie approaches Shawn and he tells her he is no calmer, he is more upset than ever. He tells her he is afraid of what he will do, or who he's going to hurt next. Belle comes over to try to talk with Shawn, but she tells him goodbye because she is leaving tomorrow, and she flashes back to their breaking up…moreless

    PREVIEW: Hope confronts Larry and confides in Bo; Roman turns his back on Kate. SUMMARY: John and Marlena arrive at the DiMera compound. She is a bit shaken, but John assures her that she will be okay. They are able to just walk in, which makes John think that someone was expecting them. Marlena is once again drawn to the painting of the ocean. She tells John that she is stronger now and is ready to face her memories…but that she is also afraid of what they may find there. John assures her that she had no power over what happened to her when she was there, reminding her that she was drugged and frightened. She asks what if they find out she gave birth to the twins and then gave them to Stefano to raise. Marlena begins to remember more as she looks at the picture and hears the sound of the crashing waves. She says she thought at first it was fear she was feeling when she heard the sound, but now she knows it is grief. She then realized that the sound of the ocean calmed her. Marlena then has a flash of the operating room, and she is singing "rock-a-bye-baby". A voice tells Marlena that she did the right thing and she won't regret it. Marlena cries and tells John that "he" told her that she wouldn't regret it. Back to reality, Marlena is crying and she tells John everything, but he wonders, "regret what?"… At the Hospital, Craig and Dr. Ash are with Tony and he is very anxious to get out of there, demanding to Craig that he be released today. Craig tells him that he is not ready to release Tony. Dr. Ash says he will take full responsibility for Tony's rehab. Dr. Ash convinces Craig to leave with him and they will talk in Craig office. The two leave and Tony tells Rex that Craig is being too cautious. Rex says that he agrees with Craig and Tony says how he always gives everyone the benefit of the doubt. He tells him that he is such an independent thinker. Rex tells him he wishes everyone would quit thinking that, but Tony tells him that they will all make up for lost time when he gets home. Rex tells Tony that he shouldn't be worrying about him, it is Cassie that is desperate for love and family and that she still thinks this fairy tale family is going to come true. Tony says that they can count on him and the DiMera's. Rex says it was the DiMera's that locked them up and turned them into freaks! Tony says that they are not freaks, and he will try to make right his father's wrongs and give them the life that they deserve and give them as normal of a life as possible. Rex tells him to only worry about Cassie. Dr. Ash returns to them and Rex leaves to go back to school Dr. Ash says Dr. Wesley insists he stays in the hospital. But, Tony says he wants out of the hospital NOW and tells Dr. Ash to make it happen. He says that they both know that he is far better off recuperating at home. Later on, Craig comes back and releases him, but says he is putting in the report that is against his better judgment. Once alone, Tony gets a phone call from Rolf, who informs him that John and Marlena are at the compound. He says that they are right on time and just too predictable as he chuckles… In the Lobby of the hospital, Belle sees Cassie and offers her a ride back to school, giving her a chance to talk to her about Shawn. Once they arrive back at the dorm, Cassie is going on and on about everything under the sun and Belle suddenly stops her, wanting to talk about Shawn. She asks Cassie to respect Shawn's wishes and give him space so he can sort through his problems. Cassie then realizes that Belle doesn't want her to see Shawn while she is away, but she promises to be there for him, because she isn't going anywhere, unlike Belle. Belle tells her that she has had a crush on Shawn since the night they gave them CPR, when she experienced what felt like a kiss. Cassie says it isn't a crush… at least not anymore. She says she and Shawn have grown closer, more like best friends, and they share things. Belle asks her if Shawn has told her what is going on with him right now and she says yes. Belle is hurt, and asks to be left alone. Cassie, with a very satisfied smile on her face, leaves. Once outside, Cassie says be careful about asking for honesty…you may learn things you don't like. Later, Belle is laying on her bed, holding a picture of Shawn and crying. Rex then comes by and is asking about Cassie. Belle is sure that she is where ever Shawn is. Belle tells him that Shawn can't tell her what is wrong, but he can tell Cassie. Belle says but soon she'll be thousands of miles away, and he won't have to worry about protecting her anymore. Seeing that she is upset, Rex goes over and hugs her… At Basic Black, Kate slept on John's desk and she wakes up to find Roman sitting across from her. She realizes that they are still locked in John's office and she is furious with him. He tells her that he will let her out if she tells him what she knows about Stefano. She refuses and only wants a toothbrush and coffee. Roman refuses to leave her alone and is not giving up. Kate is sick of this game, and she says she knows this is just a game. She snaps that he was only using her for information. He admits yes, at first, but it didn't take long for him to fall for her. They throw insults back and forth and Kate tells him that he "would unzip for anything in a dress". Roman says he cares for her a lot, and he wants to help her. He hates seeing her being sucked into Tony's world, and he doesn't want to see another DiMera hurt her. Kate tells Roman that he is the only person who can hurt her now! Roman says he cares about her, but Kate says she doesn't believe that. Kate thinks that Roman just used her, and Roman says Marlena sure was wrong about her. Kate can't believe Roman talked to Marlena about them, and she accuses him of trying to make Marlena jealous. Roman says he and Marlena's love was in the past, and she is the woman he wants. Kate says he doesn't want her, he is just using her to get what he really wants. Roman says it kills him to see her hurting like this. She tells him to leave her alone and he says if that is what she wants he will. He goes to unlock the door, telling her he is NOT giving up, she needs to trust someone. He leaves and Kate turns around, with tears in her eyes… At the police station, Shawn arrives to meet with his father, per his request. He walks into Abe's office and sees his name and Belle's on the suspect board, rattling him. Bo comes in and startles him, with causes Shawn to nearly jump out of his skin. Bo calms him down, explaining it is routine to list everyone that was there. Bo tells Shawn about the dish towel in the garbage, but never mentions the blood on it. He asks him if he saw anyone put it in the garbage, but Shawn says no, and he wants to know what his dad isn't telling him. He says it is no big deal, Hope is just having some memory problems and is misplacing things. Shawn suggests to Bo to take himself off the case, but Bo refuses, vowing to catch the killer. Shawn asks him why he cares who killed Colin, he didn't even like the guy. Bo says it is his job to find this killer and put them away. Shawn continues to freak out, and says he has to leave. Bo sees how jumpy and nervous Shawn is and asks Shawn if he wants to talk about something? Shawn says no, and races off. Once outside, Cassie calls Shawn's cell phone and he tells her that he has to tell what he did. She tells no and that he has to come and pick her up at the dorm. Shawn agrees and hangs up and walks out. Once gone, we see Bo standing in the doorway with a puzzled look on his face... At the Brady Home, Hope returns from a jog and Larry is watching. She goes inside and sees her pills. She decides she needs to eat something before she takes any and heads to the kitchen. Larry runs in and switches the bottles. Hope returns and notices that the bottle seems to have more pills in it than before. She sees the door is cracked open and walks over to it. She opens it to find Larry standing there. She tells Larry that she will fight him and get rid of him! Larry says the only thing that will get rid of him is for her confess to the murder and she covers her ears. She reaches out to grab Larry and he turns and runs off. She goes back inside and ponders taking the pills until she realizes that she faced Larry on her own. She keeps thinking about it and is unsettled because unlike before, Larry turned and ran away, the last time he vanished into thin air. She heads outside to look around, and doesn't see anything. She then tosses the bottle of pills in the garbage can… Shawn and Cassie come to the house to check on Hope, but Shawn sees that Hope's car is gone. He tells Cassie about Hope's strange behavior lately and how scared she is. He blames himself and kicks the garbage can over, the pill bottle falling out. Cassie tells him he needs to find a way to calm down. Shawn bends down to pick up the mess and sees Hope's pills and Cassie asks what they are. He tells her that they are some kind of tranquilizers. She tells him maybe he should take one... Meanwhile, Hope goes to the station and tells Bo about her latest "vision" of Larry, and how he seemed really real this time. She tells him that is was really hard for her to believe that he was just in her head this time. She is really worked up as Bo tries to calm her down. She tells him that she went to make him disappear, but instead of disappearing he turned and ran! Hope says this time it scared her because she didn't think it was all in her head. She excuses herself to use the rest room as Bo begins to think about all she told him. He begins to wonder if Larry is really dead. He wonders why Larry would be telling her to confess to a murder that happened after he was killed??? He asks "Is Hope seeing the REAL Larry?…Is that bastard still alive?"…fade…moreless

    PREVIEW: Hope unknowingly falls deeper under Larry's spell; Jennifer drops a bombshell on Jack; Tony hatches a new plan. SUMMARY: In Tony's room at the hospital, Kate shows up with a big bouquet of flowers for him. He tells her that he is glad to see her. They begin to talk, and Kate warns Tony that if he continues to press her for information about her dealings with Stefano, then their relationship, or any chance of one between them, is over. He agrees that they will not talk about Kate's past. Instead, they talk about Tony's. Tony tells Kate that he has reason to believe that he is the twins' father. Kate wonders if Marlena is their mother? Tony says he doesn't know. Kate thinks Marlena must be grieving for the time she lost with the twins… In other areas of the hospital, Sami continually tries to talk to Brandon, but he keeps blowing her off. Roman comes in and asks to see Tony: police business. Sami tells him that Kate is in with Tony, and she brought flowers. They get into a huge argument about who Roman should or shouldn't date. Roman tells her that she has no business telling him these things. Sami ends up in tears and says that she had a fight with Brandon earlier and is just taking it out on him. She wonders why nothing ever works out for her. He accepts her apology and she tries to ask him about the murder investigation, Brandon overhears and tells Sami that the murder is none of her business so she should lay off it. Roman wonders what is going on, and if Sami has anymore information to give him? Sami says no, she's already mistakenly fingered Tony, and Brandon is right, she should stay out of it. Brandon asks to talk to Sami in private, and they go onto the terrace. He tells her to stop trying to point the finger at Nicole. Sami claims that she was trying to make sure they weren't investigating Nicole. Sami asks if he brought her out here to yell at her? He says no, he has something else to tell her, something she won't want to hear. Sami thinks it is over between them. Brandon says he doesn't want to end it, but he will never chose between her and Nicole. Sami says the words just came out of her mouth, and she knows they were crazy and that she really didn't mean them. Brandon tells Sami that he loves her, and that he doesn't expect her and Nicole to be friends. However, he says that she does have to accept that Nicole will always be in his life, and he will always protect her. He manages to again squeeze in the fact that Sami was trying to put the idea in her father's head that Nicole is a suspect. Sami claims that she was only trying to make sure that Nicole wasn't a suspect because of the fact that Brandon told her earlier that he would confess to the murder in order to protect Nicole. Sami says she would do anything for him, but he says he doesn't know if she is helping him or herself. Brandon tells Sami that when she wants something she goes after it, and she doesn't care who she ends up hurting. Brandon says one of these days he or someone he loves will be the one to get hurt. Sami says she lost her temper, and she points out that he loses his temper sometimes as well. Brandon says he knows, and he apologizes for the blowup earlier. Sami tells Brandon that she loves him, but Brandon says that sometimes love isn't enough… In the meantime, Roman goes to Tony's room and overhears Kate talking about Marlena grieving for the time she lost with the twins. Roman says Marlena more than made up for the time that she lost with Sami and Eric and demands to know why the two of them are talking about his kids. Kate says she wasn't, she was talking about the Gemini twins. Roman insists that Marlena is not their mother, and he wonders what ideas Tony is putting into Kate's head. Tony tells him that he believes he is the twins' father, and that Kate jumped to the conclusion that Marlena was their mother. Roman asks to talk to Tony alone, so Kate leaves. Roman says he has an update on the hit and run. Roman says the car that hit him was reported stolen that morning, so he doesn't know any more. Tony pushes him for information and Roman tells him that the station will keep him informed and he leaves… Roman heads to Marlena's office and he finds Kate leaving a note for Marlena. He wonders what it is, but she folds it, puts it in an envelope and seals it. She marks it personal and leaves it on Marlena's desk. The two of them walk out and Roman asks Kate to have a cup of coffee with him. She says she doesn't have the time, but he wants her to make time. Roman warns Kate to stay away from Tony because he is just like his father. Kate asks if Roman thinks Marlena is the mother of the twins. Roman says if she is, then it is a new low for Stefano. Roman tells Kate that he'd like to protect her from the DiMera's, but she needs to tell him what she is hiding. Kate says nothing. He tells her that she knows where to find him and he takes off… At Jennifer's, Jack asks her what it is that she's not telling him? Jennifer remembers the bloody towel, and tells Jack nothing. She says they should just leave everything to the police. Jack is confused by this, but when he pressed Jennifer about it the phone rings. It is Bo calling to tell her that the towel is being analyzed, and he hopes he has not put her in an awkward position by asking her to keep this secret. Jack learns Bo is on the phone, and he wonders if something happened at Hope's that has her upset. Jennifer says nothing happened. Bo then realizes that Jack is with her, and they hang up. Jennifer tells Jack that Bo just called to thank her for coming by. Jack asks if Hope is doing any better. She says that Hope is just trying to recover, but she is still having residual effects from the kidnapping. Jack still wonders what is wrong with her, but she says that she is just tired and she doesn't feel well. Jack wishes she would talk to him and tell her what is bothering her. She says she can't tell him. Jack says she said that she loved him, but now she is keeping secrets. Jennifer says she does love him, and it is because she loves him so much that she can't tell. He quickly asks her what? She tells him she can't tell him that she thinks she is pregnant! Jack asks if she is saying . . . she says she is saying that it would be Colin's. She says she was so desperate to save him that she just didn't think. She heard him threaten his life and she would have done anything to keep him from leaving that room. Jack still thinks that perhaps she has the flu. She says maybe she does, she hasn't taken a test yet. Jack is a little relieved by this, but wonders why she hasn't taken the test yet? She says she doesn't want to admit that it is true. Jennifer asks Jack how he will feel if she is pregnant with Colin's baby? He can't look at her, and when she asks him to look at her, he tells her that he's sorry, but he has to go. Jack walks out, and Jennifer is devastated… At the Brady house, Hope makes herself go to the basement and tells herself, it's just the basement. She is fairly calm, but she turns around and sees Larry standing there. Meanwhile, upstairs, Bo walks in after calling Jennifer from outside. He comes in and doesn't see Hope, but he hears a struggle in the basement. He goes downstairs and finds Hope punching a punching bag. She tells him that she signed up for a self-defense course to polish up her skills. Bo says that this is not the way to get rid of Larry. She gives Hope the pills that Marlena prescribed for her. Hope says she signed up for this class to get into better shape and to help herself. She says the victim sign she was wearing around her neck is gone. She says she isn't discounting therapy, but she is doing everything she can to protect herself. Hope says he is going to start taking the pills now, and Larry Welch will never get her again! The two head upstairs. A little later, Hope is in the kitchen and Bo is in the living room. The phone rings and Hope picks it up at the same time Bo did. Hope doesn't say anything, she just listens…It's the lab about the towel. The technician says the blood isn't human blood, and Bo is relieved. They hang up the phone and Hope heads into the living room and asks Bo what that was all about. He tells her about finding the towel in the trash can. She then realizes that Bo believes that she killed Colin. Bo says he still doesn't think that. He tells her that he wanted to check it out and didn't want to worry her. He once again tells Hope that she is not a killer. Bo says the blood was chicken blood, that's all. The two discuss how a rag with chickens blood ended up in their trash can. She remembers having chicken the other night, but Bo said store bought chickens don't bleed like that. She remembers that Shawn took the chicken innards over to the neighbor's dog and maybe he used the towel to clean up and then threw it away. Bo says that is a possibility and he will ask Shawn about it first thing in the morning. Hope says she feels better and wonders if it's the pills starting to kick in. She resolves not to keep any more spooky thoughts in her head and will make an appointment with Marlena. She's going to get well for him and the boys and no one, especially Larry Welch, will stop her… Meanwhile, Larry returns to his motel room with his own pill bottle. He is upset that Bo found the bloody towel instead of Hope. Holding and waving his gun around, he has another plan in mind. Bo can't blame the towel on him, after all, he's dead and a poor innocent ghost. Taking the pills out of the bag, he plans his next move. He says he has one more move before going to Step two and holding the pills, says "Hope honey, you're going down. Once you take these pills, you're never going to need a refill...You know what they say...what doesn't cure you...will kill you"…….moreless

    PREVIEW: Marlena rejects Cassie and Rex; Shawn & Belle share an intense kiss yet Shawn breaks up with her anyway; Brady and Chloe make love. SUMMARY: At Brady's loft, he and Chloe are there and Brady expresses his worries about Tony's condition. He says that he wouldn't be able to handle it if Tony ends up paralyzed because of him. Brady wants to call the hospital for an update on his condition, but Chloe says she will do it. She is, after all, the daughter of the chief of staff, she may have more pull that he does. After she calls the hospital, she tells Brady that Brenda told her Tony's out of surgery, but too soon to know if he's still paralyzed. Brady says that he is to blame. Chloe tells Brady that she can't help but feel grateful to Tony and maybe instead of feeling guilty, perhaps he should try to feel the same way, because he saved his life. She says if it weren't for him, they wouldn't be where they are right now. They talk and cuddle on the couch and she is happy to be there in his arms and looking into her eyes – which is her favorite thing to do. Brady makes a joke about locking the door so they can stay there forever. She says that will be a problem because she has to leave him soon. Chloe explains and says that she will have to go back into the hospital soon and that she will be in isolation. Brady tells her about all the plans he has to do around his place, and he shows her that he has planted a garden on the terrace for her and the flowers will all have bloomed when she is ready to come home from the hospital. He tells her that he promises to make every day from now until she goes into the hospital special and happy, and those memories will hold her over until she gets out, when they will make more happy memories. The two quickly begin kissing and he hints that he wants more, but Chloe hesitates thinking they should wait until he's all better. He says it was only a head injury, the rest of him works just fine. They begin kissing again, and when we return, wee see that candles are lit and "My Destiny" (see the lyrics in the "quotes" section below) playing in the background and Chloe slowly opens Brady's shirt take and starts kissing his chest. Brady responds and slowly takes off Chloe's shirt and they make love on the sofa… At the Wesley house, Craig is trying to put together a crib for the baby. Nancy is sitting on the couch, enjoying watching her husband struggle with it because the directions aren't in English. Nancy tells Craig that they need to find out what happened with her pregnancy with Chloe and they need to find out what happened now. She suggests that they call her father, after all, he was the chief of staff at the hospital when Chloe was born and he should no. Craig quickly tells her he doesn't think that's a good idea. Nancy wonders if he wants to know what happened or not? Craig says he does, but right now, they need to take care of her and Chloe. They return to trying to put the crib together. Nancy tells Craig of her worries that someone may have lied to her about Chloe and she wonders if there was a pay off involved. Craig tells her not to worry about that now. Craig heads to the kitchen to make some lemonade and Nancy calls her father and asks him to come for a visit. He obviously tries to avoid it, but she asks him to think about it and hangs up just as Craig comes back. He asks her who she was talking to, but she covers and says it was a friend from lamas class. Craig has the feeling that she isn't telling him something… At the Hartley house, we see a replay of Belle telling Cassie, Rex and Shawn that she is leaving. Cassie is extremely happy with this news, but Rex drags Cassie out of there so Shawn and Belle can talk. Cassie makes it clear that she is not happy that Rex pulled her out of there, but Rex says they have to go anyway… Inside, Shawn is clearly shocked that Belle is going to leave. She asks if there is any reason she should stay? He tells her no, and the two of them begin arguing. Belle asks him why he can't tell her what is wrong, and then she wonders what is going on with him and Cassie. She asks him if he has decided Cassie is the woman for him? He says no, and he looks into Belle's eyes and says that he doesn't want things to be this way and that loves her. Belle says she loves him too, and she thought that this was it - this was the time she thought they would get it right and be together forever. Belle says that she knows this has to do with Colin's murder, and she tells him that whatever happened, they can work through together. Shawn still won't tell her anything. He just tells her that he will miss her, and Belle begs him not to let her go. She walks up to him and they both resist but once they touch each other, they can't help it and they share a very passionate kiss. Shawn tells her that he wants her and she asks him to make love to her. Shawn pauses for a moment and then backs away and says they can't. Belle asks why he is pulling away from her? He has a flashback and remembers shooting Colin, and then tells Belle that if she loves him then she should go to Paris. Belle says she will go, but it isn't what she wants. Shawn says it isn't what he wants either, but it is the way it has to be. Belle thinks that whatever he is hiding it can't be that bad. Shawn flashes back and remembers Cassie telling him that if he tells Belle the truth, then he is risking her future. Belle says she doesn't understand any of this and Shawn assures her that in time – she will. He tells her that she is better off staying away from him, and the sooner she leaves, the better… At the hospital, Marlena and John are in her office and she tells him that she has invited the twins to come see her so that she can tell them that she's removing herself from their case. John wonders how and why she came to this decision? She says it is because she can't remain objective. They share a long talk and John wants to support Marlena. The twins show up, and Cassie hopes it is something good. Marlena tells them that it could be a whole new beginning for all of them. John leaves them alone, and Marlena tells them that something has happened that changes her relationship with them, and that is why she wants to talk to them. Cassie thinks this means she wants to be their mother now. Marlena says she wants them to stay close. She explains to them about how she has to have distance from her patients to really be helpful to them. She tells them that she has deep feelings for them, and that makes her an unhelpful therapist to them. Cassie thinks Marlena is blowing them off, and that they are nothing but lab rats to her. Marlena says that is not true. Cassie tells her that she hates her and never wants to see her again, and tries to run out. Rex tries to stop her and tells her that she hasn't heard Marlena out. Cassie refuses and runs off. Rex lashes out at Marlena and tells her that she has no idea what kind of hell she is putting her through. Marlena says she just can't be their therapist, that is all. Rex also thinks she is pulling away from them, and that Cassie is feeling rejected by her. Rex tells her that Cassie is changing, she is going after things she can't have and she is keeping secrets from him – something she never did before. Rex then tells her that he thinks it will be better for both of them if they don't see her at all! Rex takes off and Marlena sits in her office and cries… Cassie is tearing through the hallway of the hospital and runs (literally) into John. She demands that he tell her that he put Marlena up to this. He denies this and she tells him that she hates him. She lifts her sleeve and shows John her tattoo and says she is a DiMera now, all DiMera! Cassie says Tony and Lexie are the only people who have been kind to her through everything. They get into a huge argument over the DiMera's. John tries to calm her and tells her that Marlena cares about them and is only trying to do the best thing for them. Cassie says that is not true, Marlena never cared about them. Cassie says Marlena and her daughter are both cruel and selfish, more than any DiMera. Cassie says she hates Marlena for lying to her, and she will never forgive her for this and takes off… John goes back up to see Marlena and to try to comfort her. Marlena tells him that she fears she's done a terrible thing. John says that they will know the truth in a few weeks, but Marlena says that could be too late. Marlena says if she is their mother, she may have already lost their trust. John says the sooner he leaves to go to the island and find the answers, the better for all of them. John tells her that he is afraid to go away and leave her alone right now, and offers to call Sami and Will to stay with her while he is away. She says that's not necessary, she will be fine because she is going with him. John asks her if she is sure? Marlena says whatever secrets they have to find, they will find together… Rex tracks Cassie down back at the dorm, and tells her to forget about Marlena and John. Rex assures her that everything will be okay. She says it won't be okay until Shawn breaks up with Belle and can be with her. She says then she'll have someone who loves her and only her! Rex tries to get her to go stay the night at the mansion, but Cassie says no, she's too tired. She heads to open the door to her room, and Rex tries to stop her saying Shawn and Belle might still be in there. She tip-toes up to the door and listens and hears Belle and Shawn fighting, which couldn't make her happier. Cassie hears Shawn break up with Belle, and she says that her dreams are finally coming true, and now Shawn can be with her… Back inside Belle's room, she tells Shawn that she never really knew him, and that maybe they were never meant to be… fade…moreless

    PREVIEW: Brandon learns about Sami's double-cross; Belle tells Shawn she's leaving Salem. SUMMARY: Shawn and Cassie approach the cemetery. She thinks it's creepy, but he says he is looking for answers. He says that his mothers family is buried there, and he visits his great-grandfather's grave. He explains that he doesn't remember him too well, he was pretty young when he died. But he knows that Hope loved him as well as Alice, who always talks about feeling him near. He wishes he could seek his advice right now. He says that he remembers a time when he was younger and was sick with a fever and his mother put him in a cool bath that he had a dream that someone placing a cool hand on his forehead. He looked up and it was Tom. After that he felt better. He says that he wishes he was there to help him now. He says Hope always says that with her mother, Addie, and Tom up there watching over them, she feels better. Looking upward, he asks what he should do. He feels a breeze and he is sure that Tom is there. Cassie then wonders if he got his answer. Shawn says yes, it's just not the one he wanted. She says will help him, but he says this is something he must do alone and leaves. Cassie follows him… Meanwhile, Rex and Belle return to the dorm and she is still upset about Shawn. She asks Rex to teach her to be independent and take things like he does. He tells her that being free has its price. She says that it can be very hard having a mother that is a shrink because she ends up turning her into another one of her patients. Rex assures her that Marlena loves her, but Belle is having trouble with her advice. Rex admits that he is lonely but she says she has never seen him that way. He tells her he would like to "be hooked" on someone. She assures him that he will find someone someday. Rex, looking nervous, is muttering that he told Shawn that he would be no good at this. Belle wonders what he means? Did the two of them talk about her? Rex finally spills and tells her that Shawn told Rex about the breakup and asked him to watch after Belle. Belle is upset that Shawn told Rex that they broke up, because she told Shawn no. Rex asks if there is anything he can do to help, she says he is sweet for caring, but no. She says if someone doesn't want you, you can't force yourself on them. Then, Penny knocks on the door and says this letter just came for Belle. She opens it and reads it and she is excited. Rex asks her what it is? She says it's "fate…just what I needed". A little while later, Belle sees Cassie and Shawn in the hall and she calls them inside. They go in and she says she has to tell them something. She explains that she applied last spring, before her and Shawn go back together, for a design school in Paris and was put on a waiting list. This letter tells her that there is an opening and she has decided to go. She is leaving in 2 weeks and will be gone for 2 months... At Jennifer's, she comes home from work, still feeling bad. Jack is there and says that Abby had dinner with Alice. Jack still thinks she has the flu, but she tells him that she doesn't think it's the flu. He asks her what else could it be? She then has flashbacks of sleeping with Colin. Jack repeatedly asks what is wrong, but the phone rings, it's Bo… At the Brady house, Bo and Hope come home from the hospital and she explains to him about hearing Larry keep calling her a murderer. In between these scenes, we see Larry applying white make up. He is sure that she is freaked out enough to confess to murder. He says for the "piece de resistance"…and pours fake blood into his hand and smears it on the mirror. Back at the Brady's, Bo tries to keep an eye on Hope but she assures him that she is okay. He has to leave and calls Jennifer to come over and sit with her. Once Bo is gone, she tries to keep busy and she picks up the newspaper and the headline screams "No Suspects in Murphy Murder". Outside, Larry watches from the bushes as Bo drives off. He has a "bloody" rag that he plants under the lid of the garbage can. Back inside, Hope is cleaning up and heads outside with a bag of garbage… Jennifer tells Jack she needs to go see Hope. Jack tries to stop her, but she says good night and she leaves… At Brandon's loft, Sami is on the phone with Jack asking why he doesn't have the evidence yet to nail Nicole. He tells her to relax, he has Harold tailing her and she is now at the Cheatin' Heart. When Sami hangs up with him, she does a "happy dance", just as Brandon walks in. He wonders just who is she trying to nail. She covers and make up a story about throwing a surprise wedding shower for a friend of hers and not letting her find out. She starts kissing him trying to distract him, and she even suggests they go away for Valentine's Day. He quickly changes the subject and talks about the murder investigation. She then changes the subject back, and that makes him suspicious… Bo knocks on the door and comes in and wants to question Brandon. Sami tries to discourage this, but Bo tells her he has to and he needs her to leave. Sami refuses to go anywhere! Brandon convinces her to leave, which she unhappily does, but in the hallway, she fears that he will slip and admit that he murdered Colin. She decides that she needs to move quickly to frame Nicole so she rushes off. Inside, Bo assures Brandon he is not after him, because Brandon thinks that Abe sent him. Bo just wants to ask questions concerning Victor and Nicole. In particular, why Colin was invited to the wedding. Brandon says that they don't need his permission, but Bo wants to know if Nicole and Colin were still seeing each other… Meanwhile, at the Cheatin' Heart, Nicole is enjoying a drink. There is a guy is hitting on her but she reminds him of the murder at her wedding, referring to herself as the "Black Widow Bride"… "Come to my wedding…get a bullet in your back!" She keeps on drinking and talking a mile a minute when Jack shows up and tries to pump her for information. She tells him stay out of her way or he may "end up just like good ol' Colin". Jack keeps at her and she gets quite snappy with him and claims she did not kill Colin. Jack tells her that he saw her kissing Colin in Salem Place and he knows that there was a photographer there. He asks her what happened to the photos? She tells him to leave her alone and she excuses herself to the ladies room, "one place you can't follow me". Once she is gone, Sami approaches Jack and wants to know what is going on. He tells her to leave before Nicole sees them together and gets suspicious, but Sami just sits there. Uh-Oh. Nicole is standing behind them wanting to know why Sami is trying to frame her. Nicole says she is going to tell Brandon what is going on and that she is framing her and takes off. Sami quickly goes after her… Once Nicole arrives at Brandon's loft, Bo has already left. She quickly starts to tell Brandon that Sami is trying to frame her for the murder. Sami barges in, claiming that Nicole is lying. Nicole keeps talking and trying to tell Brandon everything, with Sami interrupting her every two seconds calling her a liar. Brandon flat out asks Sami if Nicole is telling the truth and she tries to convince him otherwise. He then reminds her that they are not supposed to keep secrets from each other anymore and Nicole is heard laughing in the background. Sami then sees there is no way out and admits that she is trying to frame Nicole. Sami and Nicole argue and Nicole says that Sami isn't good enough for Brandon, and storms out. Once alone, Sami tells Brandon she was doing it for him, because she knows that he killed Colin… After leaving the Cheatin' Heart, Jack goes to Alice's house and she said Abby has gone to bed. Alice asks about him and Jennifer and he tells her that they were getting close. He also talks about Jennifer's involvement with Colin and how he used her. Jack says if he weren't already dead, he would kill the jerk. He quickly says that was a figure of speech. Alice tells him that he is the jerk for doubting the love between him and Jennifer. Jack says he doesn't know anymore, but says that he does know that they love each other. He then tells her that a dose of bad medicine from Colin Murphy should not keep them apart, and Alice agrees… Outside the Brady house, Larry has just planted the bloody rag just as Jennifer pulls up and Larry immediately grabs his gun as she walks up the driveway and looks in that direction. She squints her eyes and just stares off into space. Hope comes outside with the trash and she sees Jennifer passed out on the ground and rushes to help her. Jennifer comes to but she can't remember what happened, just that she felt dizzy. She then blurts out, "Oh, my God, I really am pregnant!" Hope gets Jennifer inside, and Hope looks shocked and asks her about it. Jennifer explains that she wasn't sure, but since she just fainted, it has to be true. Hope says that since her and Jack have gotten closer, well, maybe…Jennifer tells her that she wishes it were Jack. Back outside, Bo drives up and Larry hides in the bushes. He is walking towards the house, but her hears a noise in the bushes and goes to investigate. Inside, Hope realizes what Jennifer was getting at and says Colin has to be the father - and Hope is shocked. Jennifer is devastated but Hope tries to tell her that Jack loves her and he will understand. Hope tells her that they can get through this. Jennifer is just beating herself up about Colin. Hope suddenly blurts out "Colin is gone…he is dead…I killed…" and stops herself. Too late! Jennifer seems to have picked up on it. She asks Hope what she just said. Hope tells her that she is sure that she killed Colin. Jennifer just sits there, trying to take in the news. But, back outside, Bo looks around and doesn't see anybody and heads back towards the house. He happens to see the "bloody" rag under the lid of the trash can. He picks the rag up and says, "What the HELL?" and looks toward the house….Fade to black and white, except the rag – it turns bright red…moreless

    PREVIEW: Hope and Shawn both decide to confess to Colin's murder; John prepares to return to DiMera island. SUMMARY: At the hospital, Cassie is resting after giving blood, and Rex gives her some juice. Shawn comes in, and Cassie sends Rex out for breakfast and some magazines. Shawn tells Cassie that Belle is gone and that's good because he wants to talk to her. Shawn takes this opportunity to tell Cassie he can no longer keep the secret, and cannot ask her to either. He is going to tell. Cassie tells him it's her decision, and that she wants to keep the secret. Shawn tells her that too many people get hurt, and secrets have a way of coming out anyway. He goes to leave, and Cassie is agitated and jumps up to stop him, and faints in his arms. Shawn helps her back into bed and she says that she just got up too quickly. Shawn explains how the Salem P.D. all think that Tony is responsible for Colin's murder, and Cassie protests that Tony says he's always blamed for everything, and he's always found innocent and since he was out of the country, it's not possible. He says he can't keep hurting people the way he has, like Belle. Cassie asks if he broke up with Belle? Shawn says he tried but she won't let him unless he can tell her that he doesn't love her. Cassie doesn't look pleased by this, but still tells him that he cannot confess. Shawn says he is going to go confess, and abruptly leaves. Rex returns, and he stops Cassie from getting up to stop Shawn. He says she needs to get better, and he wants to know what has her so freaked. Cassie says nothing, and that everything is going right. She says not only are they DiMera's, but they can both have what they want, Belle and Shawn. Cassie happily tells him that Shawn and Belle broke up, that she has Shawn, and he can go for Belle. Rex says that won't happen, because they would be cousins if Tony turns out to be their dad. He then says he did some research and any number of people in the world could have the blood markers she does… Meanwhile, in other areas of the hospital, Sami overhears Lexie ask Brenda to pull up her blood work on the computer, as she wants to check to see if she has her brother's marker. Sami gets worried, and wonders if something will show that will indicate the results of the paternity test were tampered with. Sami snaps at Brenda that the computer not be touched as she was working on something. Brenda assures Sami that she saved her work, and will get Lexie's info in a minute. Brandon comes up, telling Lexie he is sorry about her brother and wishing luck, as he knows Tony is in surgery now. Sami sees this and tries to put a stop to it quickly as she tries to pull him off to the side to "tell him something….privately". Making a long story short, Sami and Lexie are going at it - insults are flying, and Sami almost lets it slip that she knows her and Brandon slept together, but Brandon stops her and Sami covers. Brandon then tells Sami he wants to talk to her NOW, and Sami is all "finally" and they go out to the balcony. Brandon lays into her, letting her know he is very angry. Sami tries to shush him, but he is too angry. They argue and he tells her to stop obsessing over his friendship with Lexie. She hurries up and apologizes, don't me mad at me, I'll do better, etc. etc. etc. They agree that they will be OK now that there are no more secrets between them. They hug and Sami thinks "just one more secret, one you can never know" and Brandon thinks the same as Sami can never know why he feels so protective of Lexie's baby... At the Brady house, Bo comes downstairs searching all over the house, calling Hope's name, but she is no where to be found. We see her outside in her car, deciding she can't do this anymore, and that she must go to the police station to confess to Colin's murder. She is just getting ready to drive away when Bo gets in the other side. He wonders what she is doing and she tells him that she's going to see Abe and Roman. He refuses to believe she is guilty, and somehow gets her to go back inside. Bo says he can't let her confess alone, but Hope tells him that if he is with her, then Abe will know he tried to cover it up. He then tells her that before she confesses to anything, they have to be absolutely clear. Hope says she would have done anything to stop Colin that night. Still, Bo feels that she didn't do it. Bo says he believes that the killer is someone that they haven't even considered yet. he thinks the killer is someone who would let someone like her or Jack take the rap for this. Bo asks Hope not to do anything until she has all the pieces of that night back and in place. Then they hear Zack crying and Bo sends Hope to take care of him. A few minutes later, Shawn comes in, looking distraught and wanting to talk to his father, but wonders why he's not at the station. They begin to talk about how Shawn couldn't find his mom that night, and he was worried because of how upset she was. Bo says, yes, she thought she saw Larry and was freaked. Just then, Hope comes down stairs, and insists to know what Bo is doing. She says she thought they weren't going to talk about this? Shawn asks, "not talk about what?" Bo explains that Shawn already knows about her Larry visions. Shawn heads upstairs to see Zack… Upstairs, Shawn talks with Zack and apologizes for letting him down. He tells him he did something wrong, he has to make it right, and he may have to go away for some time, so they will not see each other for a while. He explains about being scared, about not wanting to hurt Grandpa and Mom, tells him how sorry he is, and is more or less saying goodbye. He turns to leave, but breaks down crying at the door… Shawn goes back downstairs and when pressed for what he wanted to tell them, he tells them about the tension between him and Belle. They wonder if Belle is OK after Brady's accident. When Shawn tells them he doesn't know, they start asking more questions. He then tells them they are giving each other space. Hope tells him that she doesn't want their family problems to come between them. Hope thinks there is more, but Shawn says he can't talk about this anymore and runs out of the house… Once outside, Shawn tells himself that he can't confess with his mom there, he can't let her know that her son is a murderer. Back inside, Hope is glad that Shawn doesn't know she is the murderer. Bo tells her to stop saying that because it isn't true and that he is going to find the murderer and personally escort them to prison… Back at the hospital, Lexie goes to see the twins and they are talking about being DiMera's, and having a real family. Cassie sees Lexie and says she is part of the family too. Lexie says she can't think about them being related to Tony right now because she's too focused on Tony's surgery. They ask Lexie about her history with Tony. They see that she and Tony are very close. She agrees, but reminds them they were not raised together, as they were. She says she already had a wonderful family, a mother, and a loving husband…when she found out she was a DiMera. They were not too pleased, as they did not think much of the family. However, she says she learned to get along with everyone. She says if they are DiMera's, then they are related to John and Belle. Cassie says Rex doesn't want that because he likes Belle in a girlfriend kind of way. Lexie says would be great if they were family. Lexie says she's going to see what the status is on Tony and she leaves. Cassie then tells Rex that if they are DiMera's, then Belle will be off limits to him. Rex says she already is off limits, but Cassie says she won't be for long. Rex tells Cassie to stop, but Cassie says Shawn is her true love. She admits if she couldn't be with Shawn because he was family then she would be devastated… Back at the Nurses station, Lexie learns that she doesn't share the same blood marker as Tony, and hopes that Cassie giving blood is enough. Then, Brenda gets a phone call and tells Lexie that Tony is out of surgery. She worries that it is too soon. She goes back to the twins to tell them that Tony is out of surgery already. Early. They wonder if he will walk again… In Marlena's office, John is pacing the floor, and just about to go looking for her, when she comes in. She asks him to look at the papers she brought….they may have answers to the questions they have had about the twin's parentage. Marlena tells John that she's felt more emotionally connected to the twins then she's been willing to admit. She also tells him that she has had vague memories that include a lullaby, and a sense of loss. She didn't tell him before because of what he was going thru learning about Tony being his brother. She says at first she thought it was her being separated from Sami and Eric when they were younger, but that was not it. So she had some research done to try and show her blood type, mixed with Tony's could not parent the twins….but it showed just the opposite. She could be their mother. Marlena is very upset, and John assures her that if they got through Tony being his brother together, they will get through this. She reminds him of how connected she feels to the twins, and he says that he understands that, but asks her not to expect him to feel the same way. They talk about the research, and Marlena wonders what if Stefano is the father. She is horrified at the idea. John tells her that until they know for sure whether she and Stefano are the parents, they must be very careful, and they are going to research the past. John tells her the one way they may get their answers is to revisit DiMera Island….and since Tony is laid up, now would be the best time to do so. Marlena, drying her tears, agrees…moreless

Shawn tries to force him inside to tell Bo everything. Colin refused and didn't think Shawn would shoot him because "mommy and daddy wouldn't approve". Colin continues at Shawn and called him a coward. Suddenly, there is a noise in the bushes that startles both of them, Colin turns around and Shawn fires the gun, hitting him in the back. Back to reality - Cassie tries to justify it all to Shawn, but he calls himself a murderer. She tries to convince him that he isn't a bad person and that he was doing it to protect his family. Shawn realizes that she saw it all and then we see the shooting from her point of view in the bushes. Cassie flashbacks - It was HER that made the noise that frightened them, by stepping on some branches. Back to reality - She promises to keep his secret and never tell. But he wants to confess and says he intended to, but because of his mother's condition and then his grandfather having a heart attack, he didn't. He says he must go to the police and confess and walks off, but Cassie stops him. He goes onto tell her that there is one thing he doesn't understand…he was sure that they would find the gun with his fingerprints all over it, because he dropped it, right there on the terrace. But it seems to have disappeared. He says they will find it eventually and he must go and tell his family and Belle, as he can't lie to her again. But Cassie won't let him, telling him that he can't involve Belle. She says that Belle will try and protect him and put herself in danger in the process. She convinces him that she knows everything and can talk to her and not to put Belle at risk of going to jail... Just then, Rex shows up asking what is going on. He is not happy to find Shawn with Cassie. He reminds Shawn that Belle is waiting for him and is worried about him. Shawn says he knows but just stands there. Rex wonders why he doesn't go to Belle? Cassie tries to stop him, but he knows he has to go and he leaves. Once Shawn is gone, Rex snaps at Cassie for trying to break up Shawn and Belle. Rex tells her to stop trying to take Shawn away from Belle because he belongs with her. Cassie says not anymore he doesn't! She tries to leave, but Rex demands to know what she is up to. She says that Shawn needs her. Rex still wants to know what is going on. He says he hates seeing her clinging to people like Marlena and Shawn who can't give her what she needs. Cassie says what she and Shawn have is more than just love, they are destined to be together - and she has known that since she first saw him at Lookout Point. She refuses to abandon Shawn when he needs her now more than Belle and flounces off… Back in Belle's room, she puts on her coat just as Shawn comes in. She hugs him tight, telling him she was worried. He takes her hand as she asks what is wrong. She asks if something is wrong with his grandfather or mother? He says the problem is with him…he is what is wrong. He tries to leave, but she wants to know what he is talking about. He promises that he loves her but more than she knows, but he can't involve her. She gets upset, thinking he doesn't trust her. He asks her to trust him, but she says he can't talk about trust when he can't trust her. She then realizes that it has to do with Colin's murder because that is when his behavior changed, but Shawn covers and tells her that his family having such a rough time and doesn't want to dump it all on her. She pleads with him to tell her, but he tells her that he is letting her go. He says that he is going to give her space as he sorts this out. She says, "you're breaking up with me…" and he says "yes". He then has several flashbacks of shooting Colin. Belle is crying and Shawn tries to go to her, but he just can't bring himself to touch her. They just stand there… We see a replay of Tony waiting for Brady on the street and the car speeding right at Brady. Tony dives at Brady to move him out of the way, but they are both struck by the car. Chloe rushes over as both Tony and Brady lie motionless. Brady is unconscious and Tony lay awake, but doesn't move. John rushes up and says he saw the whole thing happen. He says the driver didn't even try to slow down, almost as though they running him down on purpose. He covers Brady with his coat and calls 911. He tells the operator that he doesn't know who hit them, but gives them the license plate number. Chloe is crying and holding Brady's hand and John finally turns and asks Tony if he is hurt and Tony says he can't move. John tells him that he saw the whole thing happen and he saw him save his son. He then turns back to Brady. Just as he does this, Tony says he can't feel his legs. The sirens of ambulances are heard in the background. Once at the hospital, Craig tells Chloe and John that Brady is okay and only has a mild concussion. Chloe wants to see him and they walk in. John comforts Chloe and tells her that Brady needs her. He wakes up and asks where he is and they explain what happened. In the other room, Craig and a technician check Tony's x-rays and inform him that he has a spinal cord injury and needs surgery. Craig explains that it is a complicated surgery and that there are no guarantees that it will be successful and may still be paralyzed from the waist down… At the Brady House, Hope tries to call Abe but Bo takes the phone from her. She is sure that she killed Colin, but Bo says he will go to his grave proving her wrong. She says she doesn't want to be saved this time and that Bo is in denial. But he refuses to believe it. She is sure that she did it and is blocking it out but Bo says there is no proof and for her to forget it. She says she wants to do the right thing and is afraid that if she did kill Colin that she fears what she may do to someone else. Suddenly, Abe knocks on the door. Bo tells Hope not to mention Colin. Bo answers the door, and Abe tells Bo that they have to talk about the investigation. (See a guilty look from Hope.) Bo suggests Hope go and check on Zack, which she does. Abe tells Bo that Carson Palmer is giving them grief about not nailing the killer, and having him and Roman kicked off the case because he feels like the Brady's are protecting one of their own. There is a crash and we see that Hope was on the stairs and dropped a glass. Bo and Abe see Hope on the steps, and Bo tells Hope not to worry about Carson's suspicions because no one in this family killed Colin. Abe then gets a call and has to leave… Back at the hospital, John has explained everything to Brady and wants to know why Brady was meeting with Tony. Brady explains about the file he downloaded from the server and imagines he would be pretty angry about that. But then they don't understand why Tony saved him. Abe shows up and John explains what happened. Meanwhile, Tony is being told that his spine has been injured, and he will need surgery to restore the use of his legs. Tony asks when they will do the surgery? Craig tells him that there is a lot to consider, and there is a possibility that he may not walk again even with surgery. Tony is devastated by the news that he could be paralyzed from the waist down for the rest of his life. Craig leaves and Bart shows up to explain what happened. Bart says he doesn't know what went wrong. Tony tells Bart that no one was supposed to get hurt, he was supposed to save Brady and come out look like a hero, they would back off, and he would be able to go after Marlena. Tony says if his condition is permanent he and his inept driver will suffer, and John and Brady will pay the highest price of all! Tony decides he will go through the surgery. John comes in to see Tony and ask why he did what he did? Tony says because he is his brother and Brady is his nephew. Tony says he is as protective of his family as John is… In the other room, Craig convinces Chloe to go home. She hesitates but leaves, but not before Brady can whisper that he loves her (and see Craig grinning from ear to ear after hearing that) and Chloe responds and takes off. Once alone, Brady asks Craig about Tony's condition… Back at the Brady house, once Abe had left, Hope panics and is sure that they will find out that she did it. She is sure that because of the letter, the DA will come after Bo and it will lead to her. Bo vows to prove she didn't do it by finding the bastard that did. He says he is going to find Murphy's killer and put them away for life…freeze frame and fade...moreless

Tony plants bogus information in a file so Brady will find it; as he does this, he orders Bart to arrange a "life altering experience."

    Happy 89th Birthday Alice Grayson Horton! PREVIEW: Everyone celebrates Alice's birthday and reminisces about her life; Hope makes a startling announcement. SUMMARY: Family and friends of Alice Horton gather at Tuscany for the surprise party as last minute preparations. Maggie and the head waiter fuss with the flowers and food while Shawn and Mickey try to figure out the DVD player. Belle comes to the rescue and fixes the problem with the DVD player, but Shawn suddenly takes off to get an extension cord, but really some fresh air. Jennifer and Maggie hope they will surprise Alice and Jack and Abby arrive. Sami and Brandon get there and compliment everyone of how nice they look. Maggie tells Sami she's sorry Roman couldn't make it, but Sami says that he's too busy on the investigation. She asks Brandon never to become a cop, as they never have time for their personal lives. Maggie cracks that Roman didn't do so bad in that department, but Sami bites her tongue and doesn't say a word. Sami then tells Maggie that Marlena sends her and John's regrets, as did Caroline, as she's busy taking care of Grandpa Shawn and Zack. Maggie understands, knowing how hard Shawn took Colin's death. Sami figures he'll understand after he learns what a "double crossing, blackmailing slut" Colin was. Maggie just looks at her very plainly and finally says that she didn't think a man could be called that. Sami said for him it's an exception and he got what he deserved… Meanwhile, outside, we see a repeat of Hope carrying the box of box when someone touches her shoulder. She freaks out and says she will kill you, Larry! She realizes it is just Bo and is relieved. She hugs him and freaks about what's happening to her as Larry watches from the bushes and he realizes she's more whacked out then he thought. He thinks it will just take one push and Fancy Face will go over the edge. Jennifer and Jack look at a special photo book for Alice when Will and Lucas get there. Jack tells Abby that her favorite cousin is there and Abby just moans. Lucas sees them together and asks if Jack and Jennifer are back together and Abby replies they're getting along and asks him not to jinx it. Sami and Brandon rush up, as she's happy to see her son. She runs up to hug him and she calls Will "baby" as he groans. Lucas said Will is not a "baby", but a young man. Maggie grabs the kids to help with the special project in the kitchen. Lucas asks Sami, as he cleverly calls her "SCAMI", what she's doing there being she's not related to his grandmother. Jack and Jennifer see this as a queue and take Brandon and walk away. Sami blows up at Lucas about that and said Will is Alice's grandson and she is his mother so of course she is there. She then goes onto say that she grew up next door to Alice, and that she spent more time with her then he has. He tells her it's too bad that Gran's good side didn't rub off on her. She threatens to smack that goatee right off his face if he doesn't shape up!!! Maggie gets a call from Lexie who apologizes for not feeling up to coming. Brandon and Sami overhear that she is talking to Lexie and Brandon looks concerned when he hears Maggie telling her that the sickness will go away. Sami looks a little worried by this, but suddenly, Belle walks up and calls Brandon "sexy". Brandon seems very flattered by this but Sami wonders where Shawn is. Belle looks worried. We see that Shawn is outside having flashbacks about finding Colin's body and he tears apart some bushes. Out front, Bo and Hope talk about her problem and Larry overhears them and refers to Bo as "BOZO". Hope says that she doesn't want to ruin Gran's party and Bo tells her that Mrs. H. just wants Hope to be happy and she's not alone. Together, they'll beat this thing. Larry doesn't agree… Bo and Hope bring in the box as Jennifer joins them. She senses Hope's mood as Bo signals for her to talk to Hope. The two agree they need to be inspired from Gran. Belle joins Shawn on the patio as he continues destructing the bushes. He snaps at her at first, saying she doesn't need to follow him, he's a big boy. She turns to leave but he stops her and she tells him to leave the plant alone or he'll kill it. Larry is listening as Belle tells him that he can tell her anything, she's grown up and can handle things better now. He agrees he needs to tell someone. He tells her about his mom seeing Larry Welch and blacks out, not remembering things. She asks if there's anything else he hasn't told her. He tells her how disappointed he was that their New Years Eve plans were interrupted. She assures him it's not a sign, everything will be okay. Larry smiles, saying this is almost too perfect. Inside Bo and Hope talk about Zack. She tells him about throwing the vase at Shawn. Then we find out that Alice is finally there! Everyone hides and turns out the lights. Julie and Doug bring Alice in. She sees the nice restaurant and comment on how nice it looks as everyone jumps out yelling "SURPRISE!" as the lights come on. Alice is truly surprised (as is Frances, see notes below) and touched as she throws a kiss and almost cries in happiness. The smiles and love her friends and family emit are obvious too… We join the party after they've finished dinner. The fire is crackling as Julie and Doug promise a night of excitement. Alice asks what kind of excitement? They promise a special guest will appear later. Julie says that testimonials are first, beginning with her. She pulls out a huge book and Alice comments on the size of it, but Mickey says it's because she's lived a very full life. Julie says Alice Grayson was born on January 23 and Alice finishes with 1914 and was the daughter of Sid and Abigail (nodding to little Abigail) Grayson. She continues and says that when she was 21, she met Tom Horton. Together they had 5 wonderful children, Tom Jr., Addie [her and Hope's mother], Mickey, Bill and Marie. The grandchildren came next "to cause more problems", Julie, Hope and Jennifer. Jennifer tells her that she is more responsible for giving her the white hair, then the great grandchildren, but no great great grandchildren yet...and the camera pans on Shawn and Belle… Julie then turns it over to Maggie. Maggie said becoming a Horton was the luckiest day of her life. She says that Alice opened her heart and home to her and made her hers. If everyone that Alice has helped over the years stood side by side, they'd reach around the world, and everyone lifts their hands in agreement. Maggie says she hopes everyone is enjoying their wonderful meal. They all pipe in and she credits Alice with the mentoring in food preparation. Her nurturing covers all the bases. It starts with stomachs and ends up touching their souls. She hugs Alice and tells her she loves her. She tells everyone that when most people retire, Alice and Tom started a community center out of their home. She mentions Alice's other careers as Bo speaks up about Alice being an undercover agent and gets up to tell everyone about when Alice helped to bust Roman out of jail as she knew they were trumped up charges. We see a wonderful flashback of Bo stirring cake batter with Alice and Bo wants her to leave the kitchen as he puts the cell key in the batter so she won't be implicated as an accessory. She refuses, and back to present, he said Mrs. H. was the original rebel with a cause. Alice laughs and Bo credits that's how his wife got the gutsy nature and even became a cop when it wasn't something women did then… Mickey stands and calls the Horton women "unique". He tells how his parents were surprised after 50 years of marriage to learn that is wasn't legal and that he was privileged to be at their wedding, to see them recite the vows that they have always lived. More flashbacks of Tom and Alice reciting their vows. We join Alice saying part of the vows and how she stood on the altar and mentions the candle in the window and how she like, that candle, wanted to be that for him. To light the way for him home. Mickey recalls a special bouquet of white roses, as we see the flashback, they gave her at one time...a rose for each child, grandchild and great grandchild. He announces their two latest family additions will give her another bouquet and Abby and Will present her with 22 yellow roses. Parents of Will and Abby smile as they watch the presentation and everyone claps for Alice. Julie makes a toast for all the good times in Alice's life as wine glasses clink. Julie announces the mystery guest. She tells everyone that Dr. Tom Horton was a poet and loved to saunter in beret and disguise to the beach bar to recite his poems. His nom deplume was Norm DePlume. The local TV station taped it, but Tom, in a fit of modesty, wouldn't let them run the tape. They kept it in their vaults and Shawn, resident genius, put on DVD format. The mystery guest is Tom Horton!!! They play it and Tom is reciting a love poem written for Alice. We see Tom in blue beret and sunglasses and goatee. We see everyone's face as they watch, including Alice's, all near tears, as Tom's poem pleads with his wife to never stop dancing with him, as he couldn't bear it if she did… Alice tells everyone that she wants to see all the couples kiss. They remind her it's not a wedding, but she says it's her birthday and her wish, so all the couples kiss... Bo & Hope, Mickey & Maggie, Doug & Julie, Sami & Brandon, Shawn & Belle, and Jennifer gives Jack as kiss on the cheek, which he promises never to wash again. Mickey goes to present gifts from friends and a few that couldn't make it. The family decided to get her something that symbolizes her life…so far. Bo jokes "a new donut maker". They made donations to her name to charities. He pulls out a list and reads them: ~Habitat for Humanity; camera pans to Shawn and Belle ~Leukemia and Lymphoma Society; pan to Doug and Julie ~Make a Wish Foundation; pan to Bo and Hope ~The Heifer Foundation; pan to Jack, Jennifer and Abby, as Jennifer clarifies that Abby bought a goat for a family in Guatemala so they could have milk. ~The Horton Center; see Maggie and Mickey, so they continue their good work Mickey announces that Alice has an announcement of her own to make. She's endowed a "Tom and Alice Horton Fund" for the hospital to continue their good work. Mickey says that Alice is asking Lucas to administer the fund. Lucas is surprised, and Sami is just as surprised that they've asked Lucas. He, Maggie and Alice hope that Lucas will accept and he agrees. He kisses and hugs her and thanks her for her confidence in him. Alice also asks that Jennifer and Hope co-chair the board for the foundation and they both are touched and agree as the hospital has done so much for their families. Jennifer tells Jack that she hopes she can do it all. Jack tells her she's her grandmother all over again...she's got her kind heart, same stubborn streak, same wonderful smile. Jennifer tells him that's the sweetest thing anyone's ever told her… Lucas can't resist gloating to Sami that they'll be working together at the hospital as he'll be handing out money and she'll be serving him coffee. Maggie announces it's time to dance as the song "Always" plays. Belle turns to moody Shawn who finally takes her in his arms as other couples dance. Lucas goes to Alice and takes her hand and sits with her as she watches everyone dance and she remembers her younger years and we see flashbacks of her playing pool, hugging Hope at her and Tom's wedding, putting Christmas balls on the tree, with her granddaughters during special moments and ending when Doug has her and Tom sing the end of the same song as his club. The song ends as she flashes to her and Tom dancing… Julie and Maggie present the "Alice Horton Quilt". It's her life in quilt squares. They got everyone in the family to make a square representing something in Alice's life and the hospital quilters, that Alice organized a long time ago, put it together – for her. There are 12 squares, but they only identify 9 of them. Alice asks if the first one is a donut. Close, but no… ~A life preserver that Hope and Bo made to represent all the times she's saved their lives. Hope goes and kisses her and tells her she loves her. Alice asks if the second one is a donut and Doug and Julie agree partly, but, no… ~it's a circle of life from Doug ~The 3rd one is a ruby and says "more precious than rubies" from Belle and Shawn. Belle repeats, "more precious that rubies" and Alice holds her ruby necklace in her hands. ~The next one is from Mickey. It's a gavel because he learned right and wrong from his parents and became a lawyer because of it. ~Maggie made a pair of red dancing shoes from her and Melissa because she taught them how important it is to do something you love. ~Julie made a square of a brown haired angel to represent Addie. ~Abby made a tree with her and Jennifer's name on it and Abby said she added daddy's name after they got there tonight. ~Jennifer made a candle for Alice to always light the way. ~The last square is a bone. Lucas says it's from his dad to represent all those archeological expeditions he went on years ago. Mickey reads a note Bill sent as well, saying if his mom needs a new hobby, she can become a detective, as Lord knows, no one could keep a secret from her. Look at a worried Shawn as he hears that Jennifer said that's true and Jack asks if Gran inspired her to become a reporter. She tells him Gran called always called her nosy, but he's the one to inspire her to become a reporter and together they'll find the truth about who killed Colin. She won't believe he's dead and gone until they know who killed him. Hope overhears this and Doug worries if she's ok. Hope steps outside for some fresh air. She tells herself that Larry's dead and buried. She then suddenly hears "MURDERER!" and looks around, thinking she's hearing things and flashes back to seeing Colin dead in the snow. She looks up, seeing Larry, and he says, "You killed Colin Murphy, don't you remember? REMEMBER…!" Inside, it's cake time! The HUGE cake is carried in. It's full of candles and they carry it to Alice. Belle thanks Shawn for bringing her. He hugs her as the family sings Happy Birthday to Alice. She asks Abby and Will to help her blow the candles. Hope comes in the back door just in time to see the candles blown out and it gets dark. And Hope worries if she really did kill Colin? Fade…moreless

    PREVIEW: Sami hides the truth from Brandon -- and he rejects her ultimatum; Belle helps Cassie & Rex move back to school. SUMMARY: At Brandon's loft, Sami and Brandon are cuddled up on the couch. She tells Brandon that she is not going to hold a grudge about him and Lexie sleeping together. He is happy to hear this, but tells her he wants to forget it. Sami explains that she can't forget and wonders why it happened in the first place. Brandon says they were just two friends trying to comfort each other, and he tells her that he never loved Lexie. He also tells her that he's sorry he didn't tell her earlier because he values honesty so much. He tells Sami this is it - no more secrets from now on. They hug and agree. Later, they toast each another, and they kiss. Sami then remembers changing the paternity test results and starts to feels guilty. She tells Brandon that she hates this feeling - that she is so jealous of Lexie. Brandon assures her that nothing will come between the two of them now. Sami thinks the way he just said that was cold and unconvincing. She apologizes and says that she has never had self-confidence and she has never been the girl who looks so great that she doesn't have to worry about someone taking her boyfriend. She also says she doesn't have a good job or even a degree. She wants Brandon to promise to never see Lexie again, for her sake. Brandon refuses, and says that the two of them are friends. Sami quickly comes back and says that after they slept together, she doesn't see how they can actually go back to being just friends. Brandon tells her that he is sick of spending so much time talking about Lexie. Sami says he has to cut her out of his life. She tells him that if he loves her, he will do this for her. He asks her why she is doing this? Sami tells him that Lexie is still stringing him on, and says that he will not let Lexie and Abe be together. Sami explains that when her mother left her dad for another man that it totally screwed up her life. Brandon says Abe will betray Lexie just like he has done in the past. Sami then tells him that if that happens, Lexie will come running back to him. And we're back to he has to choose between her and Lexie. Brandon refuses to choose, and she snaps that he just did! She tells Brandon that if he doesn't push Lexie out of his life for good, she is leaving and not coming back. Brandon tells her that he can't do that. She heads to the door and Brandon just stands there. She stops and turns and looks at him and says that she can't believe he would just let her leave. He tells her it's her choice. Sami tells him that if he leaves the door open to Lexie, she will eventually come back to him. She says he's going to have to make a choice. Brandon tells her that he won't be forced to make choices like this… At the DiMera mansion, Belle comes over to help Cassie and Rex pack to go back to school. She is intercepted by Tony, who wants to talk with her, as he just wants to take time to get to know his niece. She quickly snaps back that she says she is not a DiMera. Tony tells Belle that he has something to show her, a very special picture. She tells him she is not interested but he takes out a picture of his mother, her grandmother. Belle says she is beautiful, and that she didn't have a drop of DiMera blood in her - but he does. Belle tells him that she agrees with his father, he is not part of their family. Tony tells her that John is wrong, and he hopes she will come to accept him. He then offers her a gift. She tells him that she cannot accept it, but he tells her that it belonged to her grandmother, and she would want her to have it. Belle agrees to take it, only because it belonged to her grandmother. It is a brooch and she pins it on her sweater and comments on how beautiful it is. She thanks him for it. Meanwhile, the twins are in the foyer and wonder why Tony and Belle are speaking. They listen in, and Cassie is angry that Belle gets everything she wants, first Shawn and now Tony. Cassie and Rex go in, and Cassie admires Belle's brooch. When Belle explains that it was her grandmother's, Cassie asks how John will react to her wearing it? Meanwhile, at the Hartley House, Brady and Chloe are carrying boxes in, as they are helping Belle move back to the dorm. Brady is very upset because Belle is nowhere around. Caprice comes in and tells Brady that Marlena told her about John and Tony being brothers. Chloe says that maybe Tony is different, but Brady snaps back that he is just as dangerous as Stefano ever was. Chloe tells him that he needs to let Belle decide what type of relationship she has with Tony, but Brady says she will have no relationship with Tony! Caprice agrees with Chloe, she says that Belle is a big girl and they need to let her make her own choices… At the Black Penthouse, Marlena is outside on the balcony and she has more flashbacks of being in a white room, singing "Rock a-bye-baby" and in real time begins to cry. John comes over and asks her what is wrong? She comes inside and says it is Tony, what if he's right? Marlena says that he needs to accept that he is Tony's brother, and it could be a positive step towards ending this feud. She then begins to talk about the legacy of hatred and violence and wants it to stop - she doesn't want this war to move into their children's generation. John tells her that he believes that Tony has ulterior motives and wants to take her away. Marlena tries to convince him that isn't the case, but he fears for her and his children. They have a long talk and he eventually tells her that she's right, but he doesn't want to talk about it anymore. They plan to have dinner together, and then Marlena leaves. Marlena steps into the hallway and makes a (mysterious) phone call and asks them to meet with her, she needs to talk. Back inside, John gets a phone call and says, "SHE'S WHERE?" and he takes off… Belle finally arrives at the Hartley House a little later, with the twins. Brady is upset when he finds out she was at the mansion. Tony comes in behind them and Brady quickly warns Tony to stay away from his sisters. (Note: Belle has taken the pin off at this point). Cassie starts inquiring about the missing pin just as John shows up. John tells Brady he will take it from here. Brady is angry as he sees Tony pull Belle aside. Brady wonders how his father can let him just talk to Belle. John tells him nothing will happen to her in front of everyone. Tony hands Belle the brooch back, but it's in a box so John or Brady didn't see it. John does finally approach Tony and he tells him to stay away from his family and his wife. Belle tells John that she was only helping Cassie and Rex move. John tells Brady that he doesn't want the war passed onto his children, and so it will end right now with him. As Tony walks out he is furious with John and calls him a hypocrite as he remembers John telling him to say away from his wife… It was Kate that Marlena called and they have met at Tuscany for coffee. Kate is feeling lonely because most of her family is gone, Billie in Paris, Austin in New York and Philip in Basic Training, she only has Lucas and Will left. However, she says Will is having some major attitude problems and has been downright cold and rude. Marlena says she has seen this change in Will also, and she thinks that Will is trying to assert himself. Kate says that Lucas is trying to be the "cool dad" to Will, and that he is convinced that Will is perfect as is and anything negative in Will is Sami's fault. Marlena and Kate realize that this is not good, so they talk about trying to get Will to a child psychologist. Kate says Lucas would never agree to that, but Marlena says she will try to work on Sami and she should try to work on Lucas. The two agree that is what's best. Kate then realizes that Marlena called her there and wonders what is upsetting her? Marlena tells her that she seems to be wallowing in feelings of guilt and regret. She tells Kate that she is in so much pain that she can't even tell John about it. She tells her about Tony and about Stefano holding her captive on the island. She also mentions remembering the lullaby and talks about how when she was held captive, she felt that she wasn't there for Eric and Sami and how Sami suffered because of it. She then goes on about John and Tony being brother and now John has become obsessed with Tony's every move. Kate tells her that she is not to blame, they have both been victims of men who pretended to love them. Marlena feels guilty for talking about the time she lost with her children when Kate lost time as well. Kate tells her it is okay. Marlena gets paged and has to leave. After Marlena leaves, Kate says the only difference is Marlena only lost time, but she lost SO MUCH more…fade…moreless

Jennifer begins rambling on and on about having no food in the house, market is closed, but there is a 24-hour deli that is open... Jack stops her, saying that they have to talk before Abby comes home. Jennifer is very upset, and feels guilty because she doesn't know why she thought she could take on Colin alone. Jack tells her that he knows she was only thinking of saving his life. Jennifer tells him that she blames herself because she knows that she only did it to save the man she loved. Jack tells her that Colin victimized her, making her feel she had no other choice, just as Lawrence Alamain did years ago when he raped her. Jennifer says she has always thought that was the absolute worse time in her life, but now, this is. She questions what she did, and Jack asks how he can help her, but she tells him that she doesn't think he can. He tells her he should go but she asks him not to. Jack talks of the New Year, and how they saw it in together, and it is a new beginning. They kiss, and share an emotionally charged moment and just then, Abby walks in. They all share in telling each other Happy New Year, and Abby asks Jennifer if it would be OK for Daddy to spend the night, since it is late, and he'd have to go home alone. Jennifer says sure it's OK if he wants to. Jack makes sure it's noted that he wants to. Jack and Abby race upstairs to get ready for bed and Jennifer just watches and smiles. She then puts her hands together, looks up and says, "Thank You". She turns out the lights… Meanwhile, at the Wesley house, Nancy is relaxed on the couch, when the doorbell rings. Craig answers the door and it's Brady. They want to make dinner but Craig and Nancy tell them that they can handle it and Craig suggests they go for a walk. Nancy is concerned about Chloe going out in the cold but Craig assures her everything will be fine. So, Brady and Chloe leave. Once alone, Nancy tells Craig that she knows something is bothering him, and he tells her that he thinks it's important to get her medical records from when she gave birth to Chloe. They could be important…but the papers need her signature. She eventually agrees, but she makes sure she tells him that if she ever thought for a minute that Chloe was his daughter she would have never given her up… Chloe and Brady are on their walk and they wish on a shooting star. Chloe talks about Colin and how life can be suddenly cut so short. Brady kisses her and says he got his wish and wonders what she wished for. She tells him that she wished for gray hair…this confuses him, but she tells him that she wishes that she will live long enough to acquire it. They walk and suddenly see a chopped down tree, and Chloe wonders what happened to it…She remembers back to the carved initials, "P & C forever" Brady asks if the tree had special meaning, and she tells him about it. She then talks about that part of her life being over, and a new year is upon them, with good things. They kiss, and she bends over to pick her gloves up, and her nose is bleeding. Brady worries about this and Chloe says she feels fine. He asks her if she's sure, maybe they better just tell Craig to be sure. Chloe then remembers that this whole thing started when she first got a bloody nose, before she knew she was sick…She agrees to go home, but she turns and looks at the tree again and thinks, "nothing is forever"… They arrive back at the Wesley house and Craig comes downstairs and they tell him what happened. Craig thinks it's a good idea to do another blood test, just to be sure. He tells them to go on to the hospital, he will tell Nancy he has to check on a patient and meet them there... At the Police Station, it is a zoo and Marlena comes to see Bo, but he is in a meeting. She says she will wait, just as John shows up, both saying how they were trying to call the other. John apologizes for storming out of the penthouse and mentions Tony being brought in for questioning. Marlena, not surprised, tells him of Tony's visit, looking for John. She continues on, saying that she thinks the exhumation of Daphne DiMera is a mistake, that she is a doctor, and she studied the DNA results, and the sooner John accepts the results as true, the better. It will not change the man he is...and he should let his mother rest in peace. John tends to agree with her and he says he just doesn't want to hate anyone… In Abe's office, Bo says he thinks Colin's letter saying if anything happens to him, to check on the Brady family, is a fake. He says that since everyone knew that Bo and Colin didn't get along that doesn't matter and that was just a way to point blame. Roman agrees. The lab results arrive, and it proves that the letter is authentic, it is Colin's handwriting and his fingerprints were all over it. Roman wonders if maybe Colin could have been coerced into writing it. The DA barges in, insisting that the Brady brothers be taken off the case. Abe tells Palmer that it is HIS department, he has no authority, and to go talk to the Commissioner. Roman says he wasn't even at the wedding, and Bo says all his movements have been accounted for.

Palmer says he will leave, but warns that if a Brady turns out to be responsible, he will NOT cut a deal… John and Marlena come in, and get filled in on the investigation. They learn of the letter, the lab results, of Sami's involvement and how she ran to Tony. Marlena can't believe any of this, but Roman also tells them how Sami stole Roman's gun, accidentally fired it in the Salem Inn parking lot, and then returned it. Her story checks out. John realizes that once more that the Brady's are a target of the DiMera's. Roman tells John he is not a Brady, but John replies that anyone who attacks a Brady also attacks him, because he is a Brady in his soul… Bo and Marlena talk about Hope. He tells her about Hope's strange behavior, beginning with when they were decorating the Christmas tree, and she went into basement, and he heard a "blood curdling scream", over a supposed mouse. He tells her how she doesn't seem to want Zack at home, and how she left the wedding. Marlena suggests that if Hope is having problems, she may feel Zack is safer away from her. Bo agrees that is possible. Marlena asks if perhaps Hope came upon something at the wedding that scared or bothered her, but Bo replies that it could not be cause she would have told him. Marlena tells him that it would be a good idea for the family to be supportive… Meanwhile John and Roman talk of their pasts, and how they have both suffered at the hands of the DiMera's. Roman agrees, but says at least John was able to keep the woman he loved. John suggests they work together, and Roman finds no fault in that, as they both look through the window to Abe's office and see Marlena talking to Bo. Marlena comes out, and tells John what a special man he is, her husband, her hero, and they kiss… The photos from the crime scene arrive, Bo, Abe and Roman talks of perhaps Victor being involved. He knew about the contract that was put out on him, and perhaps could have hired someone? They agree to bring Victor and Nicole in for questioning as soon as they return from their honeymoon. Bo hates the idea his father could be involved. Roman then says he wonders why (Grandpa) Shawn wants to have a memorial service for Colin, but Bo reminds him that family is important to him, and that Colin was a cousin. They wonder if Tony would show up. They state that the more they narrow down the suspects, the more it looks like Tony. Bo moves some names around on the Suspect Board, pinning Victor's under Tony's, and takes a long look at Hope's before he moves it to the bottom... Fade to black & white…moreless

    MURDER AT MIDNIGHT PREVIEW: Belle lets out a blood-curdling scream after finding a dead body at the Kiriakis wedding. Also, Bo finds Hope with blood on her hands. SUMMARY: The summary is written a little different today. Since 95% of the episode took place at the Kirikas mansion, I thought the best way to write it up was in the exact order it took place… Part One: The guests gather and wait for the start of the wedding. Chloe and Brady slip away to the front hall as Bo and Jennifer exit to get something to drink. Chloe comments on how tense everything is. Brady tells her he wishes it were over already so they could be alone… Sami walks in the dining room and pulls out the gun and says, "if there was any other way…" Just then, Belle walks in and wants to know what she's doing… Upstairs, Nicole is still reading the letter from Collin and he tells her the 5 million dollars was only a down payment and how she should save her pennies. He lied to her about there being no copies of the tape and he will be back for more. She doesn't realize Victor is standing there, and he wants to know who the letter is from… Back downstairs, Fay talks to Brandon and she tells him she is worried about the wedding to and she also feels it is a mistake, but he needs to fake it... Bo hands Jennifer a drink and they discuss what she did. Bo promises to make Collin pay for what he did and goes off to find him... Jack approaches Jennifer and tells her what Collin told him earlier, about the two of them sleeping together. He asks her if it's true and she looks to the floor… See the replay of Hope walking outside for some air and she overhears Collin on his cell phone, saying he is going to kill Bo Brady tonight. He turns around and she hallucinates that it is Larry Welch pointing a gun at her. She runs back inside the house and runs into Shawn, which startles her… Part Two: Shawn catches up to Hope and wants to know what is wrong, but she assures him that she is okay and rushes off, but he is clearly worried about her. Standing alone, she says aloud, trying to convince herself that she what just happened is all in her head – there is no gun… Fay can tell that something is bothering Brandon and wants to know what. All he tells her is that Collin Murphy has hurt Nicole and he may be a DR, but he is still scum… Jack begs Jennifer to tell him that it isn't true, as she lowers her head, apologizing and tries to explain... Back in the dining room Sami hurries and puts the gun back into her purse just as Bo comes in, asking if either of them have seen Collin. They tell him no, and he leaves. Once he's gone, Belle asks Sami what is wrong. Sami covers and says this is the first wedding she has been to since her and Austin and she is just upset. Belle tries to comfort her and asks if everything is OK with her and Brandon. Sami tells her she will make sure it is. Belle then asks her if she wants to sit together during the ceremony, but Sami suddenly tells Belle that she has to take care of something and rushes off. As she's leave, Shawn comes in. Belle comments on Sami's weird behavior and Shawn says that everyone there is acting strange… Back upstairs, Nicole hides the letter from Victor as he asks why she is so upset. She covers and tells him that the letter is from her mother. He wonders why that would make her upset and she says her mother told her not to mess it up. He wonders why Fay would say that? Nicole remembers sleeping with Collin and then later seeing the tape. Once again, Victor asks her what is wrong. But suddenly, there is a knock at the door. Victor opens the door, and it's Bo, asking to speak to Victor alone. They step outside and Nicole still looks panicked… In the hallway, Bo asks Victor if he's seen Collin and Victor tells him no and wonders why he's looking for him. Bo tells him that Collin has hurt some people he loves and is going to stop him. Victor tells Bo to let him handle Collin. Bo wonders why him? Victor tells him that he has his reasons and he assures Bo that he can take care of it and Bo leaves. Once alone, Victor calls Nico and tells him to "take care" of the good doctor – now. Back downstairs, Chloe and Brady go outside and share a kiss as Collin watches from the bushes, gun in hand. He says to himself for the lovebirds to get out his way… Part Three: Victor returns to Nicole's room as she is beginning to get dressed. He suddenly grabs her and asks if she is committed to him and asks if she has anything to confide in him. She tells him that she loves him and looks forward to starting their new life together. He thanks her for re-assuring her love for him and he kisses her on the cheek. He says he is looking forward to giving her the life that she deserves and walks out. She picks up the letter again and reads it again. She says she has been waiting for so long for the life that Victor can give her and swears that no one will take it away from her. Downstairs, Fay and Brandon continue to talk about how nasty Collin is. Brandon tells her that Collin has hurt both Nicole and Sami. He tells her that he needs to take care of him and decides to go for a walk. Fay begs him to not do anything foolish. He agrees and Fay leaves to go freshen up…Brandon walks the other way and asks a man at the door for his coat…Jack and Jennifer continue to talk and Jennifer eventually admits that she slept with Collin. Jack asks her if Collin forced her to do what she did. She tells him no and tries to explain, but he tells her that he can't listen anymore and can't even look at her and walks off. Jennifer breaks down into tears and Hope comes by and wants to know what's wrong. Jennifer asks her to get her out of here and the two walk off… Bo enters the living room, still looking for Collin, and asks Henderson if he's seen him. Henderson tells him, very bluntly that he can't keep track of individual guests and excuses himself to the kitchen. As Henderson is leaving, Victor comes around the corner and tells him to tell the staff to be on the lookout for Collin Murphy. Bo tells him good luck, he's searched every room and closet in the place and can't find Collin. Just then, Victor sees the chairs are empty and wonders where his guests are. He then yells for Henderson to round up the guests, he's ready to get married. Back outside, Brady and Chloe are still kissing, with Collin watching from the bushes. Henderson comes outside to gather them and tells them the wedding is about to start. They head inside and Collin goes around to the window wondering where Bo is. He looks inside and sees Bo with Victor. Collin says, "best man…try dead man." Part Four: Hope and Jennifer are standing outside, and Hope wants to know what is wrong. Jennifer tries to explain. She rambles on about that on Christmas her and Jack said they loved each other. Hope is happy to hear this but can't understand why that makes her upset. She says it's Collin. She tells her that she actually heard Collin say that he was going to kill Jack and how she had to do it to save him and now Jack hates her. She says it doesn't matter what it takes, she will make it right and she takes off… Hope stands there looking off deep into space and she remembers hearing Collin's phone call and him saying he was going to kill Bo… Inside, Henderson does his best to get the guests in place. Bo is worried because he doesn't see Hope anywhere but Victor asks him to stay and wants to start the wedding… Back outside, Collin is still looking in through the window, gun still in hand. The music starts, but there is no Nicole. Victor asks Henderson to find out what's going on but comes back empty. Victor asks Bo to say something, he's going to check it out. Bo explains that there has been a delay but will get going soon. Bo asks Shawn to go look for his mother. Brady and Chloe wonder what's going on and Brady jokes that maybe her hair is messed up or maybe she gained a pound and her dress doesn't fit…The guests just wait and the justice of the peace asks Bo if there is a problem and Bo chuckles and says it is a big house, maybe the bride got lost. Back outside, Collin prepares and he suddenly hears rustling in the bushes. He turns around and has a panicked face… Part Five: Bo tells the justice of the peace that he must leave to go and find his wife and son and runs into Victor and Nicole just as they are the living room. Nicole doesn't look too pleased to be going through with this all of the sudden. Bo tells Victor that Hope is missing and he is going to look for her, but Victor insists that he stay by his side during the ceremony. Bo agrees. Bo announces that the wedding will begin and the music stars. Victor walks Nicole down the aisle, still not looking too happy. She almost stumbles and looks as if she is going to faint when they almost reach the alter. At this point, the only guests that are seated are Fay, Belle, Brady, Chloe and Marie. Hope, Shawn, Jack, Jennifer, Brandon and Sami are all nowhere to be seen. The justice of the peace starts the ceremony…The words, "dearly beloved" fade into the ending when he pronounces them man and wife and tells Victor kiss the bride. He kisses Nicole, but she still looks very shaken up. Everyone applauds. Suddenly, Shawn stumbles in at the back of the room, rubbing and shaking his head and appearing very disoriented. Bo sees him and congratulates Victor and approaches Shawn. Bo thinks he's acting this way because he couldn't find Hope. Shawn tries to talk, but Bo keeps cutting him off telling him that he feels the same way whenever Hope is out of his sight. Bo tells him not to worry and to go have a good time and he will go and find his mother. Even after Bo walks off, Shawn still seems very disturbed… Part Six: Everyone is congratulating the couple, but Nicole is extremely fidgety. Belle approaches Shawn, who is still distraught. She tells him that the wedding was nice but he didn't miss anything special. She realizes that something is wrong and thinks he's worried about his mom. She says his dad is looking for her and he is still freaking. She volunteers to go with him and look for Hope. He agrees and takes her hand and they walk off. Victor, with his hand on the back of her neck, bluntly asks Nicole why she was so late for the wedding. She just looks off as Fay approaches them and congratulates them. She tells Nicole that she is worried about Brandon because he left before the ceremony and hasn't come back yet. Nicole tells her not to worry, there is nothing to worry about anymore… Brady and Chloe are glad it is all over and Chloe wants to know if they can leave. They go up to congratulate Victor and Nicole and Brady tells them he has to take Chloe home and they leave. Fay suddenly notices that Nicole isn't wearing her veil. Nicole very coolly says that she forgot it. Fay seems a little surprised by this…Brady and Chloe walk out the front door, and the camera pans to the ground and we see the veil lying in the snow... Part Seven: Brady and Chloe return to Brady's loft and they both scream (literally) about how bad that wedding was. They are glad to be alone and Brady can't help but worry about Victor making the wrong decision. Chloe wonders if Victor really loves Nicole. Brady says someone has to...after all, she IS beautiful (if don't know, Kyle Lowder (Brady) and Ari Zuker (Nicole) are married in real life). Chloe says sure, if you like that type. Brady says this is his type and kisses Chloe. Brady wonders what to do now and Chloe drops some hints of how they can celebrate. But Brady says first thing is first and he pulls out party hats, sparkling cider and noisemakers. They have some fun, and lots of kissing… Back at the wedding, Fay tells Nicole that she is going to look for Brandon and walks out. Victor tells Nicole he can't believer she forgot her veil and he won't tolerate that type of lax behavior now that they're married. He tells her he knows that's not why she was late. She assures him that she just needed more time, as she told him already. He tells her that she's lying. Fay walks outside, and runs into Jennifer and asks her if she has seen Brandon. Jennifer tells her no and Fay walks off… Jack approaches Jennifer and she begins to apologize. Jack tells her he doesn't want to hear it if it's about Collin. He tells her that he wants to just forget about Collin. She tells him that she can't. She says, "he's always gonna be with me now, always…" Part Eight: Chloe and Brady kiss and wish each other Happy New Year. They discuss resolutions and she says she is just going to live in the moment and take it as it comes. He asks if he can join her and she says she is counting on it. He tells her he has confetti and they both take a handful and throw it in the air. They begin kissing again…Back at the wedding, Victor and Nicole get more congratulations then Victor grabs her by the arm when she tries to leave. He tells her that he knows why she was late. Outside, Fay is walking around and is yelling for Brandon. Then we seem Sami returns to Roman's house and takes the gun out. She says "I did it for us, Brandon"… Shawn comes back inside the house and asks Victor and Nicole if they've seen Hope or Belle. He tells them he can't find either one and he and Belle split up to look for Hope. They tell him no and he walks off. Jack and Jennifer came back inside and are now standing in the foyer and he asks her if she wants to be with Collin. He wonders this because she said Collin will be a part of her. She says no, she never wanted to be with Collin, she hoped and prayed for to be dead. She then tells him that her prayer had been answered. Jack looks confused… Outside, Belle hears Fay yelling for Brandon and she begins yelling for Hope. Bo rushes in the front door at home and calls for Hope, with her coming out of the kitchen. He explains that they've been looking everywhere for her. Back at the mansion, Belle is still looking for Hope and when she goes around the corner, she screams at the top of her lungs…she has just found Collin's lifeless body in a puddle of bloody snow... Back at the Brady's, Hope isn't saying anything, she just rubs her head. As she does this, Bo notices blood on her hand and asks, "What happened to you?" ...Fade to black.

    PREVIEW: Hope gets a birthday surprise from Bo; Jen and Colin make love; Brandon vows to protect Nicole from Colin. SUMMARY: At the Brady House, Hope comes downstairs, worried that she slept so late only to find the living room filled with red balloons. Bo suddenly pops up from hiding behind the chair and tells her "happy birthday!" He got up early and had Caroline pick Zack up and decorated the house. He says that there are surprises there, but she must find them. She wonders how? He hands her a pin and tells her to "start poppin'". As the day goes on, we see them running around the room and she is popping the balloons, looking for her present. She finally pops one and out comes a note. It is a day at the Salem Inn Spa and a suite reserved for them for the night. She is happy and she hugs him, but over Bo's shoulder in one of the balloons, she sees Larry's face and remembers him telling her, "I shot Shawn with a camera, next time, I'll use a gun". Her instincts kick in and she wants to know where Shawn is as she is worried about him… Meanwhile, at the Horton Cabin, Larry is cleaning up the place, just in case anyone goes there, he doesn't want to leave a trail. Suddenly, he hears a noise outside and sees Shawn and Belle approaching. He hides behind the wood for the fireplace. Shawn and Belle had come there for some time alone and glad that there are no snooping parents...or no Cassie trying to hug Shawn...or no Rex making goo-goo eyes at Belle. It's cold in there and they decide to build a fire. Shawn goes to get the wood when his cell phone rings…it's Bo. He's calling to see if Shawn wanted to wish his mother a happy birthday. He wishes her a happy birthday and Hope asks him if he's ok. Shawn insists he's fine and he'll see them soon. He then gets back on the phone with Bo and tells him that he and Belle are at the cabin and they are going to build a fire. Bo says that's fine, but to make sure they open the flue, the tool is in the shed. After they get off the phone, Hope is still uneasy. Shawn goes to get the tool and Larry watches Belle, holding his gun. Shawn notices that there are ashes in the fireplace and that the flue is already open, but figure that maybe Mickey and Maggie had been there. They go to get wood and as Shawn takes and knocks a chunk of wood off the back, which hits Larry in the head. (that was just too funny!!!). After they leave with the wood, we see blood rolling down Larry's head and he passes out. Shawn can't seem to get the matches to light because they're too damp so they decide maybe they should just go. Larry suddenly comes to, and is still watching them. As they head to the door, Shawn notices the Santa beard, but pays no attention and tosses back down and they leave. After they are gone, Larry says that they are lucky he didn't have to shoot them...he is after the big fish… In Victor and Nicole's room at the Salem Inn, we see a replay of Victor snooping through Nicole's stuff and finding the check to Collin. He puts it back and Nicole comes out of the bathroom in only a towel. She wonders what's up? He tells her that he forgot he had a meeting and has to go and then he rushes out. After he is gone, she realizes that he must have found the check and panics... Jack is still at Dot.Com calling around everywhere trying to locate Jennifer. Brandon is there as well, looking for Sami. Brandon calls Sami on her cell phone, just after Sami witnessed Jennifer and Collin in the hall. She tells him where she is and that she had seen Jennifer earlier. She tells him to order her a latte and she will be there. They hang up and Brandon tells Jack that Sami had just seen Jennifer at the Salem Inn. Jack suddenly rushes out to go there. Meanwhile, up in Collin's room, he is suspicious about Jennifer coming on so strong, thinking she is up to something. She swears she isn't and he tells her that he loves her and that he wants to hear her say that she loves him, which she reluctantly does. We next see them in bed, kissing and undressed and she is having flashbacks of Christmas night with Jack and their kiss. She thinks she loves Jack and would do anything to protect him. The two of them have made love and afterward, she has her back to him and is crying. He wonders what's wrong? She tells him that she is okay and she loves only him and that Jack is NO THREAT to them… Back downstairs, Jack arrives and runs into Sami in the lobby. He asks about Jennifer, but Sami tells him that Jennifer left. She walks off and thinks she is NOT going to be the one to tell him that Jennifer is two-timing him. Jack picks up a phone and has the front desk ring Collin's room, but there is no answer. Jack is panicked just as Bo and Hope arrive for their day and see Jack. Hope goes on to her facial and Bo volunteers to help Jack out. Jack tells Bo he is worried that Jennifer has taken on Collin all by herself and he needs to stop it. He wants to go up to Collin's room, but Bo insists he will take care of it, and heads up to Collin's room himself… Jennifer and Collin are still in bed when there is a knock at the door. Jennifer freaks and gathers her things and goes into the bathroom. Collin puts on a robe and opens the door. Bo wonders why Collin is in his robe? He tells Bo that he was sleeping because he worked all night at the hospital. Bo comes inside and asks him if he's alone. He tells him he is and Bo seems satisfied and leaves. Collin slams the door wishing him a Happy New Year. Jennifer comes out, fully dressed, telling Collin that she has to leave because she has to go pick up Abby. He tells her again that he wants her to go back to Ireland with him, but she makes up excuses...her job...her family...Abby in school. He thinks it's because of Jack, but she tells him no. She asks him to stay in Salem a while longer until she can work out the details. After she leaves, Collin is more sure than ever that he needs to get rid of Jack… Bo returns to the lobby, informing Jack that Collin was alone. Suddenly, Jack gets a call on his cell phone, it's Jennifer. She's crying and just keeps telling him that she is so sorry...she begins to cry harder and can hardly talk. She covers and tells him that she was chasing down a story and he wants to meet up with her, but she says she can't. As the camera pans back, we see that she is around the corner in the lobby watching him. They hang up and Jack is sure that Jennifer is in some kind of trouble… Hope comes to get Bo for their massages and as they leave the lobby, she sees Larry, telling her that she can't get away from him… Meanwhile, back at dot Com, Brandon meets up with Nicole (who is visibly shaken). She tries to explain it as pre-wedding jitters, but Brandon isn't buying it. She eventually cracks, telling him that she has been unfaithful to Victor and she thinks he knows. Brandon tells her that marrying Victor is a mistake and tries to get her to just call off the wedding. But she won't and eventually tells him about the tape and that someone, she is not naming names, is blackmailing her. Brandon tells her to tell him who it is; he will kill him. She refuses but does tell him about how she suspects Victor saw the check and knows. Sami just then walks up, asking what they are talking about. Nicole is very upset that Sami is there and starts crying… We see Victor on the phone with the wedding planner telling them that he wants one more wedding invitation "Dr. Collin Murphy at the Salem Inn". He makes it clear that Nicole is not to know about this… Just at this time, Collin makes a call to Sami and demands that if she wants to keep Brandon from finding out the truth to meet him NOW! Sami rushes off. Nicole then decides that she needs to go home and feel out Victor, to see if he knows anything and she leaves. But once she is gone, Brandon says to himself he's sorry he went through her stuff, but he had to know. He pulls out the check from his pocket. He sees the $5 Million before anything. But then he suddenly sees the name on the check is none other than the good doctor, Collin Murphy… In an alley, Sami gets there and Collin makes sure he rides her about how long it took. She demands to know what he wants as he tells her that he saw her in the hallway earlier, spying on him and Jennifer. He tells her that he wants her to take Jack out to Lookout Point tomorrow night at exactly 11:30 pm and tell him what she saw and heard. He says that it is only fitting, since she is the biggest snoop in town. She tells him no way, but he threatens to expose her DNA switch to Brandon. Sami says she will do her best, but doesn't understand why Collin wants Jack to know. Collin tells her not to ask questions and to do what he says. She reluctantly agrees and leaves. After she is gone, Collin fantasies about what it will be like and he sees Sami and Jack standing on Lookout Point and her telling Jack. Jack seems very upset and asks Sami to leave. After Sami is gone, Collin walks out and pushes Jack over the cliff. Back to reality - he says "what a tragedy, Jack loses Jennifer and takes his own life." Then he laughs and...fade on Collin's face…moreless

    PREVIEW: John and Marlena learn the truth about John's biological father; Hope continues to have "visions" of Larry. SUMMARY: In Collin's hotel room, he looks at a photo of him and Jennifer in his wallet. He wonders why he ever let Jennifer get away, and he vows that he will not make that mistake again. He says he will have her and he won't let her go. He has fantasies about he and Jennifer making love. He looks at the picture again and thinks about his new life with her in the New Year…He is anxious to have Jennifer for himself – and to get rid of Bo and, vows to himself, to be rid of Jack as well… At the penthouse, Marlena and John are alone understanding Belle and Brady's absences, but missing them. John says he wished Sami and Will had stopped by because he wants Sami to feel comfortable there. He confides in Marlena that he still loves Sami as if she were his real daughter – and heck, for a while, he thought she was. John is very anxious because he is still waiting for Shane's call with the DNA results – he is so worried that he is Stefano's son. He says he thinks that Stefano used him to take Marlena away from her family. Marlena tries to convince him that he had nothing to do with Stefano's plans. The two begin kissing, and John thanks her for supporting him while they wait for the test results. The two of them then have flashbacks to what they thought was their last Christmas together in Aremid. Later, Marlena disappears into the kitchen and brings out some chocolate pudding parfaits with whipped topping for them to enjoy. Marlena starts to feed it to John, but she ends up throwing it at him and getting it all over his face! The two have a whipped cream fight and enjoy licking the spoils off the other's faces! Suddenly, in the midst of all the fun, the phone rings. John knows it's Shane because it's on the private line. They bid each other happy holidays and then John asks for the DNA results. We see John with a straight face and then he hangs up. Marlena asks him if he is OK and he tells her that the DNA shows that he is not Stefano's son. He explains that Daphne DiMera and Phillemina Alamain were sisters, and that Daphne had an affair and quietly gave birth to a son and gave him to her married sister and her husband, Leopold Alamain, to raise. He says they adopted him, and he became Lawrence's brother and their legal son. This means that John and Lawrence are cousins, which is how the previous DNA test showed them as relatives. John believes that since Daphne cheated on Stefano and tried to give her son up in secret that Stefano must have learned this and came after him later in life. John is still concerned – if Stefano isn't is father, then who the hell is??? Marlena says they shouldn't think about that right now, and they head upstairs. She surprises him by putting on a "Mrs.' Claus" little sexy number and the two of them make love. Afterwards the two talk and John is relieved that he is not a DiMera. Marlena tells him that they will face whatever comes their way from now on together… At the Horton Cabin, Larry prepares dinner still using the canned food he found and he proposes a toast to the Horton Family for letting him use their vacation home for the holidays. He then says he didn't get a gift – yet, but he will - Bo's death. He then fantasizes about kidnapping Hope again and telling her that Bo is dead – but he didn't kill him - cousin Collin did... At Jennifer's, Jack gives her a Christmas gift. She says that's funny. He right away says no, it's not funny, it won't squirt water at you. She says it funny because she got him something too. Jennifer opens her gift and it's a Santa Claus holding a pen and paper list. She looks stunned, and Jack looks confused. She just tells him to open his. He opens it up and it's a Mrs. Claus! The two of them are a perfect pair! Jack tells her that everything about her has become a part of him, and he suggests they begin again. Memories of Christmas past, including the one where Jack comes down her chimney dressed as Santa and then him proposing to her. They put Abby to bed, and then they discuss the risks of getting involved with Collin and what's in jeopardy if she messes up. Jennifer assures him that she has to do this for their family. She also says this is about them as well, and they continue to have flashbacks of Christmas pasts. The two of them end up in a very passionate kiss. They stop and look at each other smiling and kiss again. Jack then picks her up off the floor, as the two exchange a very "satisfied" look (see notes below) and he starts to walk to the stairs. Just as they get to the stairs, Abby comes down and wants to know why dad is carrying mom? They tell her that mom stubbed her toe, and daddy was carrying her upstairs. Abby is confused and says she just wanted a glass of water. They take Abby back to bed, and she asks them to stay with her until she falls asleep. Jack hesitates and says OK. Jennifer snuggles up on the bed with her, admitting being tired too. Jack watches both his girls sleep, and tells them he loves them and they each respond they love him too as they both fall asleep. Jack smiles, wishing them a Merry Christmas and softly retreats… At the Brady house, Zack has gone to sleep, and Shawn and Belle have taken off for a drive. They joke that if that's the case, they won't be seeing him for a while. Bo gives Hope her big present, which is himself. He promises to continue to love her with his entire being for the rest of his life. He also has one more thing, the music box with their song playing in it. They flashback to when Bo first gave Hope the music box, and they dance to the song, and then kiss. We see another flashback to when Bo gave her the bearskin rug and Bo wonders where it is? Hope says they'll have to find it. Suddenly, Hope sees Larry watching them outside and she freaks out. She says he is out there! Bo runs outside, but no one is out there. Bo asks her whom she thought she saw? Hope covers and tells him that she thought she saw Collin outside, but it must have been a neighbor looking at their lights. They snuggle in front of the fireplace, and are soon headed upstairs…At the end, we're treated to the two in bed enjoying each other as Christmas music is playing in the background…fade… Episode Pictures courtesy of

    Christmas Eve in Salem! PREVIEW: The Horton family gathers for Christmas with their famous decorating tradition; Chloe and Brady make love under the Christmas tree. SUMMARY: At the Horton's, the family gathers for Christmas Eve. The Brady's arrive with armloads of gifts and are greeted by Doug and Julie, Mickey and Maggie, the Devereax trio, Will and Lucas. Hope comments on how hot it is in there and Julie says it must be 90 degrees and it's been that way for days because she doesn't think that Alice has turned off the oven. Abby squeals that Will's ate so many cookies they had to make more. Jennifer tells Lucas that she's happy that he and Will could be there, as does Julie tells Jack. Lucas and Jack are happy to be there too. Bo teases about Santa going overboard and Will mouths off about knowing WHO went overboard and tells Zack that there is Santa. Lucas assures Abby there is and asks her what she wants for Christmas. She tells him there's only one thing, to spend Christmas with her mom and dad. Jack and Jennifer exchange a satisfied look. Bo tells Doug that they spoke to Glen and Barb earlier and that they thanked him for all the gifts they sent to JT. Hope can't wait for Shawn to see his gift and Bo mentions the hole in his wallet as a result. Hope says she's missing Shawn and she hopes that he and Belle arrive soon… On their way to Gran's, Shawn and Belle stop by the DiMera Mansion, and they bring Christmas presents for Cassie and Rex, explaining they like to share their blessings. Cassie shows them all the presents Count DiMera has for them and asks if Belle and Shawn were sharing blessings when they locked Rex out of his dorm room door that night. Rex scolds Cassie about her manners, but she continues by asking if they set off enough heat to set off the sprinklers. Belle found it strange the sprinklers only went off on the 3rd floor, but Cassie doesn't respond to this. She then lets on her knowledge about sprinklers and that they don't all go off at the same time, they're heat sensitive. Cassie then, rather rudely, tells them that she hopes their evening wasn't ruined. Shawn realizes the time and say they need to go…He bids them a Merry Christmas and they leave. Once gone, Cassie thinks to herself that by next Christmas, Shawn will be hers… Meanwhile, in Nancy's room at the hospital, Craig notices something on her monitor and Dr. Bader is there and Chloe and Brady are not far behind. Chloe fears it's bad news, but Craig assures her it's good news - as Nancy's blood pressure has returned to almost normal. Dr. Bader says with proper rest, medication and avoiding stress, it should stay that way. Craig tells Chloe that Nancy would do anything for her daughters. Chloe says she isn't thinking about her bone marrow transplant right now, she just wants her mother and sister to be okay. Dr. Bader sees that Nancy's heart is speeding up and Craig tells Chloe that probably means she's waking up. Craig goes over to her just as she opens her eyes, so Craig's face is the first thing she sees. He tells her both she and the baby are okay. Nancy worries about how long she was out and Chloe says, "It's Christmas Eve" and Nancy turns her head and Chloe says "Merry Christmas Mom". Dr. Bader tells them she hopes to send Nancy home for the Holidays if her blood pressure continues as it is. Nancy couldn't be happier. Craig suggests to Chloe and Brady that they go celebrate and he'll stay with Nancy. Chloe doesn't want to leave, but Brady says he thinks that Craig wants to be alone with his wife and they leave. Once alone, Craig and Nancy tell each other how much they love each other. Later Craig comes back in a Santa hat and Nancy hopes Santa can tell her that she can go home for Christmas. He gives her a gift and she wonders what it is. Craig tells her it's good news and if she can handle the excitement of it, she can handle anything. She opens it up and sees it's a file folder. She opens it, and sees that it's test results. He tells her it's a paternity test. He says the test shows the DNA bond between a father and a daughter…She asks him, rather abruptly, how he thinks this is good news...She later rants to him how can he think he wasn't the father of the baby, as her blood pressure and heart rate increase. He tries to calm her and tells her he's sorry. He doesn't mean this baby, he means another little girl, "our little girl". Nancy looks confused and Craig tells her, "Chloe. Chloe is ours"… Outside the Kirikas Mansion, Nicole worries about Colin's tape as she stands in the cold. She damns Collin for blackmailing her. She then wonders what she will do if Victor ever sees the tape… Inside, we see Victor and Kate's unhappy reaction about hearing that Phillip has joined the Marines. Kate wonders why? Victor credits the bad decision to Chloe's influence as Phillip feels he still has to prove something to her by risking his life. Phillip says that he's growing up and moving on with his life. He is upset that his parents still aren't proud of him. Kate wants Victor to use his contacts to get him out of this, but Phillip says no. He is still upset and runs out… Alone with Victor, Kate worries their son may be going off to war. Nicole arrives, asking what's up with Phillip? Kate tells her if anyone should risk their life, it's her and to drop dead! Kate leaves as Victor, very bluntly, asks Nicole where the hell she's been. She tells him she was shopping and he tells her about Phillip joining the Marines and shipping out immediately. Surprised, she hugs him and tries to lighten the mood by suggesting they open some presents. Victor pushes her back and tells her to stop it! Nicole figures her life will be perfect, ruined or over, thanks to Collin. She asks Victor what is wrong – is he upset about Phillip or something else? He apologizes to her and she lets out a sigh of relief… Meanwhile, back at the Horton's, Shawn and Belle arrive. Belle comments on the beautiful ornaments and is told how Shawn almost sat on the box a couple of years ago. The traditional Horton ornament hanging begins as each family member takes their turn at hanging their own ornament. Doug and Julie go first, then Mickey and Maggie. Jennifer puts out her hand for Jack to take and they go to the tree with Abby and hang their ornaments in a tight group. Shawn holds Zack as Shawn hangs his ornament next to John Thomas' on the tree. Bo and Hope do the same with their own. Hope kisses Gran and she takes Zack's ornament and hangs it on the tree next to hers and Bo's. Mickey carefully unwraps Alice's ornament and hands it to her standing next to the tree as she hangs it. He then gives her Tom's and she hangs it next to her own. Mickey helps her straighten them on the tree as Alice looks up, telling Tom they're all still there and are so blessed as Hope hugs her and Doug and Julie lovingly watch from behind… At the penthouse, John and Marlena sit and bid each other Merry Christmas. She wishes him she could give him the one present he'd like, not to be a DiMera. He wonders if that's how he got so much hatred – if Stefano turns out to be his father. Marlena tells him he is a loving man and he loves him family. She then says they should head over to Shawn and Caroline's, because that's where their family is. Jus then, the doorbell rings and John tells her to get rid of them. It's Tony – and he's bearing gifts. He has Bart bring in a red draped gift and Marlena unraps it and it is the portrait that she found on the island. Marlena stares at it as Tony tells John that Marlena should have the painting of herself. John wonders why Tony gave her the gift. Tony claims he just wants to prove he's not his father and thought Marlena might want the portrait. John tells him no, they don't want it and asks Marlena to agree. Startled, Marlena tells him they accept it. Tony's takes this as a sign that their family's will get along in the future and bids "Merry Christmas to all and to all, a goodnight" and leaves. John admires the painting saying it's prettier in person than her picture of it. John figures it's time to do a little celebrating and the two head out the door… At the Wesley House, Chloe and Brady come through the door and Brady is carrying a tree on his shoulder. Chloe says she can't believe they got one this late on Christmas eve. Knowing how many ornaments Nancy has, Chloe kids they better get started decorating or they'll be there all night. The two head to the attic to get the decorations. Later, Brady gives Chloe a "Baby Sister" stocking and she tells him she bought her a gift today. Brady kids that he bets it won't fit in that stocking and Chloe says he's right. She takes it and hangs it on the mantle with the others. Brady brought the angel from his loft for the top of the tree and he helps Chloe up so she can place it on top. All the decorations are up and Brady gives Chloe a surprise. It's an envelope that she reads aloud, I owe you a trip to Los Angeles" He tells her for the trip there they missed. He tells her for whenever she wants to go, he figures they can go after the baby's born or after her transplant and she's cured. She gives him her present that she says she bought on her ten minute shopping spree. It's a snow globe with a cabin and a man and a woman outside of it. She couldn't believe how she ever thought she wasn't lucky as she found that so quickly. He tells her he can't believe he waited so long to tell her that he loved her. She tells him she loves him to and they kiss… At the Brady Pub, Grandpa Shawn announces that he is closing the pub for the Brady Christmas Eve party. Just then Phillip arrives, asking to spend a little time with them. Hugging, they agree. We see Bo and Hope are there and Mom and Pop do a private toast to Bo and Hope, saying they couldn't wish them any more love then they already have, so they wish them peace. Kate arrives and taking Phillip aside, asks if he told his friends. He tells her no, he wanted to enjoy the night without questions and worries. Touching his face, she understands. Roman joins her, glad she accepted his offer to come. She tells him she didn't have anyplace else to go. John and Marlena arrive and tell Bo and Hope they need to talk with them about Tony DiMera. They tell them about the painting and about Tony bringing it as a gift. Suddenly, Marlena remembers it's Bo and Hope's wedding anniversary and she wishes them a happy anniversary. She comments how much she's looking forward to spending the evening with her friends, family and turning to John, saying you big guy, the man I love. She kisses him and Hope tells her she took the words right out of her mouth as she turns to kiss and hug Bo. Bo and John look at each other with concerned looks… Back at the DiMera Mansion, Tony opens a gift from Cassie and Rex as they thank him for giving them a home. He finds a framed picture of the twins. Bart comes in and comments on all the "loot", saying there's more to come from upstairs. Tony hands Bart an envelope, Bart wonders what it is? Tony tells him it's his Christmas bonus. Bart is almost speechless, saying Stefano never gave him one. Tony tells Bart this is his house now and compliments Bart that the bonus is for what he lacks in intelligence (through no fault of his own, he adds), he makes up for in loyalty and obedience. Bart whispers to him that Rolf needs to see him in the secret room as Tony disappears. Bart sees the twins and he tells Rex he'll show him how to play his new Game Boy (?). Tony joins Rolf in the secret room and Rolf says he just wanted to give him an update on the Legacy Project. Tony tells Rolf he wants to show him what he got himself for Christmas and walks over and uncovers the Marlena portrait, saying Marlena has no idea hers is just a copy… During the closing montage, we hear "Chestnuts Roasting on an open Fire" softly playing in the background, as everyone is enjoying Christmas Eve with loved ones… At Alice's, Doug and Julie share a kiss under the mistletoe as Mickey and Maggie laughingly kiss, saying they don't need mistletoe. Alice wishes Tom a Merry Christmas while looking up… At the DiMera Mansion, Rolf peeks in the living room as Cassie listens to her walkman while Rex and Bart are still playing with Rex's gameboy(?)… At the Kirikas Mansion, Victor and Nicole toast with champagne as he watches her as she's deep in thought, and she drinks her whole glass of champagne in one gulp...

    PREVIEW: Philip is devastated to learn that Brady and Chloe have been intimate; Nancy's life and that of her unborn child's - hangs in the balance. Also, Jennifer makes a heartfelt apology to Jack, hoping she has a future with him and Shawn and Belle are on the brink of making love. SUMMARY: At the Hartley House party, the lobby is filled with students, all celebrating the joyus end of finals and the start of the holiday season. Shawn and Belle are dancing closely and making out and Cassie, obviously very annoyed, looks at them and vows to stop them from taking their relationship further. Rex tells Cassie they need to pack, Tony is expecting them. Cassie says she's not going anywhere. Shawn and Belle continue to discuss their big night and they both have decided that they are sure; Belle tells Shawn she knows it's right because she loves him so much. The two decide that it's time to head upstairs. Belle is nervous because Caprice is there and she suspects that Rex and Cassie have are watching. Meanwhile, Mimi talks to Phillip about his leaving for New York to go to Columbia, but he wants to talk about Chloe, and how he doesn't want to leave while she is sick. Mimi talks about how she and Kevin had a long distance relationship - and that sometimes first loves work out and sometimes they don't. Mimi tells Phillip that Chloe has moved on, and he needs to as well. Phillip tells her he doesn't want Chloe to be alone and Mimi reminds him that she's not alone – she has family and friends, and she hesitates, but says she also has Brady. Phillip can see where she's going with this. Mimi lets it slip about Shawn and Belle's plans and how Cassie is watching, so Philip says he will take care of Cassie, and he takes her, not too willingly, outside to make snow angels. Rex sees this and he asks Mimi why she is trying to get rid of Cassie. Mimi says they're not trying to get rid of her, just that Phillip needed to go outside and wanted some company. Belle, having seen Mimi's signal that Cassie is gone, takes Shawn and they head upstairs… At the Park, Chloe is walking and Brady spots her and throws a snowball at her. She turns around, as she is not amused, and sees that it's Brady. She tells Brady that she can't hurt him, and that she's not worth the risk Nancy is taking… She then turns extremely cold to him and he tells her to stop being so selfish and they begin to argue. Brady says that Nancy is fighting for her life because of her but she isn't fighting at all and it's letting everyone down. Chloe explains that she is afraid that she will end up hurting everyone. Just about this time, we see Phillip and Cassie walking through the park. It doesn't take long for Phillip to spot Brady and Chloe and he stops. Cassie sees the look on his face and tells Phillip that she's cold and is going inside and she leaves him there. Phillip hides behind the bushes and listens to Brady and Chloe's conversation… There are no words to describe the look on Phillips face when he hears Brady tell Chloe, "you told me you loved me…" He then goes on to tell her that if she doesn't want to hurt him to stop pushing him away, but to lean on him because he loves her and wants to help. He continues by saying that he has no regrets about anything in their relationship and asks her if she can say she does. Chloe can't say anything…Brady then says that when they were in Colorado and they made love, it changed their lives forever and that it is the best thing that ever happened to him. Cut to an even more devastated Phillip. Brady tells Chloe that she has so many reasons to live and she just needs to believe that…This breaks Chloe down and she runs into Brady's arms and they share a long embrace. In the meantime, Phillip, having heard and seen enough, has walked off. Chloe suddenly gets a call on her cell phone from Craig and he tells her she better get to the hospital…Nancy isn't doing very well (explained below). Chloe turns around and snaps at Brady that he was wrong...Nancy is dying and rushes off… Phillip walks down to the river and we see him wiping the snow off the "P & C 4 EVER" tree, and he has flashbacks of their relationship. He remembers everything from the first last blast dance when he first realized he was in love with her and all the times after that. He remembers after they broke up but how she couldn't stay away from him and when he first carved "P & C 4 EVER" into that tree. It is a nice sequence of scenes and they way they played it with the music just fit Phillips state of devastation. He then says that Chloe doesn't need him anymore and he picks up an axe and begins to chop down the tree… In Shawn's room, he is lighting candles and Belle comes into his room, dressed in only a robe. She tells him that she is sure she is ready as he takes off her robe, telling her she is beautiful. The two kiss and fall back on the bed… When Cassie gets back to the dorm, she goes to Cynthia for help, but she is busy making out with some guy on the couch and doesn't have time for her. Cassie talks to Rex and he informs her that Shawn asked him to sleep in Belle's bed and Cassie realizes that Shawn and Belle are having sex right now and she is determined to stop them. Caprice comes in and advises Cynthia to take her display of affection to a more private place, and the two of them head for the door. Just then she runs into Cassie and Cassie tells her that Shawn and Belle are having sex right now and Cynthia advises her to "put out the fire" before it's too late… Back in Shawn's room, Shawn is massaging Belle's back and Belle tells him he thought of everything. The two begin kissing again… But, in the hallway, Cassie says "this will put out their fire" as she opens the fuse box. (I believe by mistake), she turns on the sprinkler and she ends up getting drenched, but it appears she's too late as Belle and Shawn are at the point of consummating their relationship… Back at the hospital, Collin comes up to Craig and informs him that he is leaving Salem, as he got an offer overseas that he can't turn down. Craig tries to talk him into staying, especially since he is Chloe's doctor, but no go. Collin tells Craig that if there's anything he can do…and Craig says yes, he can do him one favor… Later, Craig goes to see Nancy, who isn't doing so good, and she tells him nice try sending Dr. Murphy in, he's very persuasive, but not persuasive enough… She has not changed her mind and is determined to carry the baby as long as she can. She says every day she carries the baby, the better the chances are for Chloe. Craig explains that he is worried about her as she explains that the baby is their miracle and now they must believe. Craig pleads with her to change her mind but she gets really agitated with him and begins to have trouble. Later, Dr. Bader is with them, as Nancy is sleeping, and she explains to Craig that Nancy's kidneys and liver are now in danger and her BP is still too high. Craig tells her to prep for surgery – he wants to take the baby now by doing a c-section and wants Dr. Bader to assist. She says that they can't do that and he tells her he'll scrub in. She tells him he cannot operate on a family member. She tries to talk him out of this by asking him what he would do if it were any other patient. He says this isn't any other patient, this is his wife. Craig breaks down and begins to cry, and says he MUST do something. Dr. Bader tells him that they have to follow Nancy's wishes. (This is when he calls Chloe). At the Salem PD, Jennifer has called a meeting with Jack and Bo by asking them to meet her there and she fills them in on what she overheard in Collin's room. Jack is very upset with her for putting herself in danger as she explains how and what she found out. She tells them about hearing Collin admit that he was on the DiMera payroll and that she is sure neither of them had anything to do with the murder of Raymond Grant, but how they're worried about what the police will turn up in Grant's office. Jack tells Bo that since Jennifer heard it straight from the horses mouth to arrest Collin. Bo explains that they have no proof and that he needs specifics. Jack doesn't understand and says that "we all know" what going on and Bo says they can't go to the commissioner with "we all know…" Jack asks Bo about the evidence at Raymond Grant's office and he explains that they pretty much came up empty there. Jack doesn't want Jennifer in danger, but Bo says in order to get the proof they need, Jennifer needs to continue, or Collin will become suspicious. He says that it has to be her to bring him down. Jack is very uncomfortable with this, but she is determined to follow through. She tells her she will be OK, Collin wouldn't hurt her. She tells him that she can use her relationship with Collin to bring him down. Jack still says no way. Jennifer says she must do this to avenge and protect her family, and Bo offers support and promises to wire her and have backup ready. Jennifer tells Jack that she is upset that Collin played her for a fool and now she wants to "nail him". Reluctantly, Jack tells her to "sign me up" as he wants to help. Bo leaves and Jack offers to take Jennifer home… On the way home, Jack and Jennifer stop in the park…Jennifer tells him that she wants to talk to him. Jack tells her he isn't up to fighting. She tells him that she doesn't want to fight and admits that he was right about Collin all along. She says that she went after the wrong man on purpose and that it is a pattern in her life. He looks hurt by this, but she says a pattern after him…She explains that ever since she was a little girl and they took her mother away, she has had trouble trusting people. She talks about the crazy and risky life she and Jack shared and says that she is ready to take a risk again. She says she knows that she doesn't have the right to ask because of all the times she's turned him down but asks if they could start over…and Jack says no…See Jennifer's face fall. He tells her he doesn't want to start over, because in order to do that, they would have to forget about the past and he doesn't want to forget a minute of it. But, he says, before they can move on with the future, they must put this Collin mess in the past. He tells her to be careful because he worries about her. She looks up a little but and she asks him if he would like to spend Christmas morning with her and Abby. With a smile, Jack says that wild reindeer couldn't keep him away… Meanwhile, Collin visits with Larry, still dressed as Santa. Larry is still upset that Collin isn't following his orders, and he threatens him again. Collin threatens Larry right back, saying that he is a wanted man. He informs Larry that he has a new plan, and he pulls out his gun. He tells him that he will take care of Bo, but in return, wants all the info Larry has on him…or "Santa will be wearing a bit more red this year." Larry reluctantly agrees, but says he will not give Collin the $2 million. Larry walks off and wonders why Collin is eager to kill his own family for no money… After Larry has walked off, Collin says he doesn't need Larry's money when he can get $5 million from Nicole…plus he can have Jennifer to boot…"Lucky me" he says… Bo comes out of a store and spots Collin and he walks right past Larry in his disguise. Collin tells him his plans to return to Ireland. Bo asks about his relationship with Jennifer and Collin tells him not to worry, it will all work out. They say their goodnights, and as Bo leaves, Collin says that once he has his ducks in a row, it will be a permanent goodnight for Bo…and anyone who gets in his way….fade… Episode Pictures courtesy of
