Billie tells him that as long as she claims to feel hurt and betrayed, she won't have to commit to him. Billie tells Bo that he has to forgive himself, even if Hope doesn't.

"Hope" tells Marlena that she has had memory flashes of the hotel in Capri as well, and John's memory matches hers.

Marlena thinks it is just the power of suggestion. "Hope" doesn't understand why she doesn't want John to remember his past? Marlena says she does want John to remember, but she doesn't understand why SHE wants it so badly? "Hope" says she is interested because she believes his past is linked to hers. She says she thinks they can work better together than alone, but Marlena tell her that she has Bo to help her. "Hope" says that Bo has made very little progress.
