Sergei is picked up by the police for vagrancy. An officer phones Felicia and said Sergei claimed to live with her. She agrees to go to the station to clear up the matter. When she gets there, Sergei is trying to tell the officer that he was just taking a quick nap on a park bench, but doesn't live there. He asks Felicia to help explain things to the officer. Felicia isn't too happy with Sergei at the moment, but can't refuse his pleas for her help. She tells the officer that he does in fact live with her... he's her full-time Russian tutor.
Tito spies on Remy and Nick. She's still upset with the prank Tito pulled, and he overhears her tell Nick that she's glad she kicked him out. Nick walks Remy home, and asks what she thinks Tito will do now. Remy says she hopes he goes back to school, but Nick is skeptical. However, he's just happy having Tito out of their lives, and he can have Remy to himself.
Toni puts pressure on Paulina after finding the key to the strongbox at her house. Paulina is obviously distraught with Toni's questions and doesn't give answers. Toni asks where Joe is, and Paulina tells her that she doesn't know. On the docks, Joe tries without success to revive Freeman using CPR. A man who saw everything calls Joe a killer and runs off. Joe calls for an ambulance, but refuses to give his name to the dispatch operator. He cleans up the scene as well as he can and leaves just before Josie and the paramedics arrive. He leaves the strongbox behind. Josie recognizes Freeman, and the paramedics say he's too far gone to save. Josie finds the strongbox beside Freeman. Paulina becomes more and more upset, but Toni refuses to leave. She's determined to talk to Joe. Toni assures Paulina that she has great respect for Joe, but if he's stealing evidence, she has to know why. Josie calls for Toni and reports finding the strongbox and Freeman. Toni leaves to meet Josie at the station.
Tito goes to Paulina's, looking for a place to stay. She tells him she'd love to have him there, but it's not a good time and she thinks it would be best for him to return to school immediately. He tries to make her feel guilty, but she says that it's because she loves him that she wants him to go. She doesn't want him involved in what's going on around there. As Joe comes inside, Tito asks her exactly what it is that's going on. Paulina sees Joe and asks if everything is all right. He says yes and switches the topic to Tito. She says he'll be staying for the night. Joe is about to go to bed, but Paulina says she has to talk to him. Joe doesn't want to talk in front of Tito, so Paulina calls Remy and asks her to let Tito stay there for a few days. Remy tries to say no, but Paulina pleads with her, and Nick tells Remy to go ahead and say yes. Paulina rushes Tito out. He asks if there's anything he can do to help with whatever has her so upset, but she says the best thing he can do, for her and for himself, is to stay away for a while. Alone with Joe, Paulina asks him where he was. She tells him about Toni's visit, and says he's in trouble and they both know it. She begs him for answers, but Joe just says it's all over now and neither of them are in trouble any more. She tells him she knows about Freeman, but Joe says he didn't kill Freeman and there's nothing to connect them. Paulina tells him Toni found the strongbox key on their floor. Josie and Toni meet at the station. Josie says it should be obvious that Joe didn't steal any evidence. Toni shows her the key she found at Paulina's and is about to try it on the box when an officer reports to her that only Freeman's fingerprints were found on the box. Josie tries to convince Toni that it must have been Freeman who stole it from the evidence room. Toni wonders if he'd done it before and taken Cindy's shoes or Grant's tape out of evidence. Josie says she'll check it out. Toni also wants to find out who made the 911 call, and why a healthy young man would drop dead with a heart attack. She then tries the key, and it opens the strongbox. She comments that Joe isn't making things any easier. Josie tries to convince Toni that the key doesn't prove that Joe did anything wrong. She also suggests that maybe Toni is being hard on Joe so she won't be accused of favoritism. She thinks they should focus on proving Freeman was Cindy's accomplice in Grant's murder. An officer interrupts to give Toni a tape of the 911 call.
Felicia returns to the Lucky Lady. Etta Mae starts giving Sergei a piece of her mind, but Felicia says she just wants to talk to Sergei, so Etta Mae leaves them alone. Sergei thinks all is well between him and Felicia again, but she lets him know that she's still hurt by his deceptions and wants nothing to do with him. She suggests he think about returning to Odessa. He refuses to leave America. He says he's not going to give up the dreams that brought him to America in the first place. Felicia warns him that immigration will catch up with him. Still, he says he can't leave America and he can't leave her. Felicia tells him women would take him more seriously if he wasn't always hitting on them, but he tells her his feelings for her and for America are not a joke. He agrees to leave her alone, but says he'd rather die than leave America. He leaves, and suddenly is stricken with pain in his side.
Remy questions Nick's sudden change of heart, but Nick explains that having Tito around will give them the opportunity to learn if he's pressuring Paulina for money. Remy is reluctant to snitch on her friend, but Nick reminds her that Paulina gave her a chance when no one else would, and if Tito is scamming her, she deserves to know the truth. Remy agrees. Tito arrives, and Remy blasts him for making Nick think that they were sleeping together. He tries to pretend he's innocent, but she won't let him off the hook. She makes him apologize to Nick in order to be allowed to stay at her place. He gives in, but inside, he is fuming about it. Tito is ready to sleep, so Remy and Nick give up the couch to him. Tito is surprised when Nick makes no move to leave, and Remy tells him Nick is going to be living with them, too. Tito is furious.
Paulina tells Joe that they need to come clean with each other. She wants to know what Joe has done to cover the fact that she sold her child. He doesn't want to talk. He says what's done is done and can't be changed. Too much has happened, and there's no turning back. He tells her they shouldn't tell each other any more than they already have. He says Toni will be back with more questions, and the less they know about what the other has done, the better. Meanwhile, Toni and Josie listen to the 911 tape, and instantly recognize the voice that placed the call as Joe's.
Lila and Matt are on the terrace with Jasmine and commenting about her 'excellent check-up'. Matt invites Lila to go to the park with him and Jasmine so they can celebrate but Lila tells Matt that she can't and that he needs to learn how to do stuff with Jasmine by himself. He says that he can but he thinks they should celebrate and Lila reminds them that they are divorced.
At Cass' office, he gets back from Chicago and is greeted by Anne. She starts talking about how Lila found the divorce papers and he is not happy to learn that they actually met face-to-face. Anne says that she didn't seem to recognize her anyway and Cass says that is good and he leaves. Anne is rummaging through his files when he finds one on Frankie. She also finds a movie where Charlie was first born and starts to watch it.
At the Lucky Lady, David is going over his ideas and Amanda is supposed to be listening but is staring off to space. When he asks if his ideas are that boring she apologizes and says that she just can't concentrate. She also apologizes for going over to his apartment the other night. He says it is ok and hands her a book about gardening. She starts reading it and it is in French, however she has no trouble reading it (it is actually Amalie that is reading). She is startled she knows how to read it that well even though she has no idea what it says. David suggests that they go to the garden later on that night and name flowers, just for fun. She agrees but has to get home so leaves.
Back on the terrace, Matt and Lila are arguing. Lila says he needs to accept that they are divorced.
Inside, Rachel makes arrangements for a cruise to leave the next day. Alli and Rachel are talking about it when Amanda comes in. Rachel asks her for lunch and Amanda replies in French. Rachel answers back in French and Amanda asks her what she is doing. Rachel tells her she answered in French because Amanda did. Amanda doesn't even remember doing that and gets another headache. She goes to lay down and Rachel calls the cruise place. She makes it so that the ship leaves tonight. Alli asks her grandma how she is going to get Amanda out of the house and Rachel says she has know idea. Alli comes up with a plan. She tells her grandma that David can help them. She sets up a meeting w/David and Rachel says that she wants to meet him also. The doorbell rings and Rachel answers it; it's Cass. Cass asks where Lila is and Rachel replies that she is on the terrace, with her husband. Ex-husband Cass informs her. He goes out there and Lila is thrilled that he is home. Matt goes inside and Rachel tells him that she will need his help to find out what is wrong with Amanda, but that means he will be working with Cass.
Back at the Lucky Lady, Alli meets David and they are wondering how to get her mom on the ship. He comes up with the plan that he will call her and tell her he has a photo shoot he wants her to do and the photo shoot will be on the boat. Alli thinks it is great and says that so will her grandma. She tells David that she wants to meet him and David starts getting nervous. He leaves and says that he can meet Rachel any day but he has to plan for the 'photo shoot' right away and he leaves. Rachel walks in and Alli says that she just missed David. Rachel's cell phone rings and it is Jordan Stark. He tells Rachel that he needs to see her right away because he wants to tell her the truth. The whole time he is speaking he is coughing (really he is on the dock and is just pretending). Rachel leaves to go meet with him. Back on the terrace, Lila and Cass are talking about how much they missed each other and how they can't wait until they are married. They decide to go see if getting married is ok with Charlie and they leave.
Inside, Cameron is at the door and he tells Matt that something is definitely wrong with Amanda. They start arguing over it and Amanda comes down the stairs. They ask her how she is doing and she says fine. She tells them David just called and wants to do a photo shoot. All of a sudden, she starts crying and she doesn't know why. She says that maybe she should just call David and cancel but Alli says that she can't. After all, he has everything already booked and Matt and Rachel wanted to tag along.
At Cass', Lila and Cass ask if it is ok with Charlie if they get married. Charlie says it is about time they do and she doesn't mind at all. Cass goes to get some wine and sparkling water for Charlie and Lila and Charlie start talking. Charlie tells Lila that she can't wait to have Jasmine as her sister since she is such an adorable baby. Lila says that she is sure Charlie was to so Charlie goes to get some baby pictures and show her. As she is showing her the pictures, Lila sees what Frankie looks like and realizes that she looks just like the girl in Cass' office (Anne).
At the docks, Amanda, Alli, and Matt are at the ship and Amanda is waiting for David. She sees her luggage and demands to know what is going on.
At Lumina, Rachel is in Stark's office and tells him that she is here just like he wanted. He doesn't turn around so she goes up to him and tells him that she is not going to talk to the back of the chair. She spins it around and realizes Stark is unconscious.
Back at Cass' office, Anne says that she can make Cass and Charlie love her, just like they loved Frankie.
Charlie showed Lila family photos of her when she was a baby. Lila spotted a picture of Frankie and freaked when she noticed the resemblance between Frankie and Anne. Cass came out of the kitchen with champagne to celebrate his and Lila's engagement and snapped at Charlie for showing Lila the photo album. He apologized for his behavior. Charlie felt bad showing pictures of her mother to Lila on the day of their engagement. Lila told Charlie that she was happy to see photos of Charlie with her mother. However, she clearly was hurt and confused that Cass has kept Anne's resemblance to Frankie such a secret.
Charlie went to call her cousin in Mississippi, Katie about her father's engagement. After Charlie left the room, Lila yelled at Cass for not telling her earlier. The two argued over the secrecy and the fact that Cass hired Anne as his legal assistant. Lila wasn't angry because Cass has feelings about the whole Anne/Frankie situation, she was angry because he didn't tell her about it. Cass assured Lila that he didn't tell anyone except Felicia. That didn't sit too well with Lila. She became angrier.
Lila told Cass that she wouldn't have hired a Shane lookalike if he came to town.
Charlie walked and heard an angry Lila tell Cass, "If you don't want to discuss this, fine. But maybe we should discuss what this means for Charlie." When Charlie questioned what they were talking about, Lila covered saying that she was worried about how she was going to living with her. Charlie assured Lila that she should not worry.
At the pier, Amanda was becoming irritable. She wondered where David was. Matthew and Allie were worried about Amanda and Rachel's whereabouts. Matthew reminded Amanda that they have always been able to rely on each other. Amanda seemed to be in a daze. Matthew questioned her behavior and whether she had seen Jordan. Amanda assured him that she hadn't. Matthew was really worried about his sister. Matthew noticed a similarity to Amanda's behavior and the way he acted once he went to Lumina. Just as Amanda was about to open up to Matthew about something important, Allie came back to the pier with David.
Amanda found out the plan her family cooked up to get Amanda out of Bay City. Amanda yelled at Matthew and Allie, and she told them to go find their mother because she didn't want to talk to any of them. Allie wondered why she wasn't angry with David since he was in on this too. Matthew and Allie went back to the Cory mansion and discovered that Rachel was still not there. Matthew told Allie to wait there for Rachel and for Claudia to stay with the twins. He went to search for his mother. A dazed Amanda told David that she wanted to talk with him and not her family. They both agreed the garden would be the best place to do that. He took Amanda to the secret garden. Once in the garden, he began calling Amanda Amalie. Slowly but surely, Amanda became Amalie. She remembered everything that she once shared with Jordan. She remembered their wedding. Jordan vowed to Amalie that he would do whatever it takes to keep them together. He then told Amalie that before they can be together, Amanda must finish out the scenario.
At Lumina, Rachel noticed Jordan sitting in his chair unconscious. She ran to get help. Jordan opened his eyes and glared at Rachel with this scary look on his face as she ran for help. It was obvious he was pretending. Ms. Allen came in and tried to talk Rachel out of calling 911. Finally, Ms. Allen said she would do it. Rachel and Ms. Allen helped Jordan to the floor. Jordan demanded to talk with Ms. Allen so Rachel headed for the door. As she looked back towards Jordan, she noticed Ms. Allen taking something out of Jordan's pocket. Jordan then called out for Rachel. As Rachel sat down next to Jordan, she kept a close eye on Ms. Allen.
Jordan wanted to get up, but Rachel was insistent that they wait for the doctor. Ms. Allen was growing more defensive. The paramedics came in and took Jordan out. Ms. Allen followed. Rachel grabbed the item that Ms. Allen took from Jordan's pocket, which appeared to be some sort of a remote control. Rachel closed the door and began to explore the office. She had to hide when someone came in the office for a few minutes, but she managed to escape being found.
Rachel turned the television on using the remote control and watched Mr. Stark hypnotizing Matthew into believing his family was in danger and into loving Lila. Next, she saw when Lila and Zack found Jasmine's cradle up in the tree top and the cradle falling. Rachel immediately stopped the tape and suddenly understood why Lila did anything Jordan asked. Rachel attempted to take the tape out to use as evidence but Jordan appeared on the screen and warned Rachel that it is not going to be that easy. He told her that once she leaves with the tape, the tape will no longer contain what she viewed on it. It will, instead, show a short informational film of the services at Lumina. It will not mention any of Jordan's manipulations.
After Jordan's message to Rachel played, another shocking video filled the television monitors on the wall. It was Amanda standing at the top of a clock tower crying that she was worthless. Rachel tried to convince herself that it was just more of Jordan's hallucinations. Wondering whether or not Amanda really was in trouble, Rachel headed to the clock tower. Matthew went to Jordan's office in search for Rachel. Ms. Allen told Matthew that Mr. Stark wasn't there. Pushing his way into the office, he said he was looking for his mother.
Inside the clock tower, Rachel went to each side of the tower where the clock is displayed and shouted for Amanda. When Amanda was nowhere to be found, Rachel decided to leave. She tried opening the door but it was locked. She called for help but there was nobody around. Locked in the tower, Rachel realized that she had just become the next victim of Jordan's hallucinations.
Jake and Vicky go to Carlino's where they argue about who's at fault for Marley's lawsuit against them. Jake wants to get Paulina's opinion. He has a hard time getting her attention; she's quite distracted. Jake and Vicky can see how tense she is, but she insists she's fine. Toni and Josie arrive and ask Joe to go to the station to answer some questions about Grant's murder. Paulina is so startled that she drops her tray. Joe helps her pick up, and tells her to remain calm, like this was any other case. He leaves with Toni and Josie. Jake and Vicky see how upset Paulina is. When they question her, she tells the something awful is happening and there's nothing she can do to stop it. She says Joe is in trouble because of her, but before she can say more, Tito arrives. Jake is leery of him, and Paulina sends Tito to the kitchen to make some food and then blasts Jake for being so cold to her son. Jake says he's not 100% sure about Tito, but Vicky tells Paulina to listen to her heart. Paulina talks to Tito, and promises him unconditional love. She tells him there's nothing she wouldn't do for him. Paulina tries to call Rachel to discuss the trust fund money, and learns that she's missing. She sends Tito back to Remy's, then digs up an envelope that had been sent by Rachel. She uses it to forge Rachel's signature on the trust fund document.
Rachel is trapped in the clock tower and realizes Jordan tricked her and must have known of her plans to leave with Amanda. She can't figure out who would have told him. Back at the Cory house, Alli and Matt are frantic because they can't find Rachel. David and Amanda return from the garden and when asked where she's been, Amanda answers in french. She and David start giggling and Matt can't understand their behavior in light of the fact that Rachel is missing. David smoothes things over, and Matt tells him about his search for Rachel at Lumina. She was there, but now there's no sign of her. Cameron arrives, and David tries to get rid of him, but Matt says he invited him. At the sight of Cameron, Amanda seems to start coming out of her trance. She fidgets with her necklace, and Cameron says he'll take it off since it's bothering her. Cass and Lila arrive, and everyone discusses theories of what Jordan could be up to. Cameron says he doesn't think Jordan is the problem. He thinks it's David, which David denies. He suggests calling the police, but Lila says if Jordan is behind Rachel's disappearance, the police won't do any good. They won't find Rachel until Jordan wants them to. In the tower, Rachel remains strong. She figures Jordan must have been afraid of her to trap her like that.
At the police station, Toni and Josie tell Joe about Freeman's death, but he plays dumb until they play the 911 tape with his voice on it. Toni asks Joe to explain what happened with Freeman, but he says he has nothing to say. Toni confronts him about the strongbox found with Freeman and the key she found at his house. Joe says they have nothing that puts him on the docks with Freeman, and he's not saying anything, so charge him or he'll be leaving. Toni lets him go, but on his way out, the man who saw Joe and Freeman on the docks is talking to an officer and points Joe out. He says that's the man he saw. He says Freeman was begging for his life, but that Joe killed him in cold blood. Toni tells Joe they now have an eyewitness, but Joe points out Freeman died of natural causes, so how could he have killed him. Josie asks if Freeman was blackmailing him, but Joe denies it and again says to book him or let him go. Toni tells him he can leave, but to stay in town.
Cass asks Lila why she's so sure Jordan is involved, and she tells them how he'd tried to make Lila break up Cameron and Amanda's wedding. Cameron figures that Jordan found out he was the father of Josie's baby. Alli confesses that she's the one who told Amanda after hearing Cameron and Josie talking about the baby. She wasn't going to say anything, but talking to David changed her mind. Cameron confronts David for being in the middle of everything again, and asks him whether he's working for Jordan, or if Jordan is working for him. David denies any connection to Jordan, and says all he wants to do is help Amanda after Cameron ruined her life. Cameron shoves David, and in the process the necklace gets knocked to the floor. Amanda tells everyone that she thinks she knows what's wrong with her. She talks of her headaches, and strange dreams about a face. While everyone is listening to her, David picks up the necklace and brings it closer to her. She goes back to her trance-like state. He tries to put the necklace back on her, but Cameron takes her outside to talk. Cass leaves, and Matt and Lila start making calls to track down Rachel. Alli, alone with David, worries that everything is her fault, but David tells her it's not. Alli asks him if he thinks Jordan is really a threat to Amanda, but David says the only threat to Amanda is Cameron. Outside, Cameron shows Amanda the picture of the fountain that she drew. She claims she can't draw and has no recollection of drawing that picture. She tells him she's afraid; she can't understand what's happening to her. She tells him that at the moment she feels fine, and that she misses him. He says he misses her too, but that lately, even when he's with her, it's like she's not really there. David interrupts and gives Amanda the necklace back. Suddenly, her personality changes again. She says she doesn't know what's wrong with her.
Kate and Lucas are talking about Nicole and his plan to get her to marry him. Kate tries to discourage him, but Lucas is determined and full of hope for their future. Kate tries in vain to talk him out of it and tells him that he can't buy love. Does he really want a wife that just wants him for his money? Lucas says sure, if it gets my foot in her door. Kate continues to argue, but Lucas's mind is made up. He tells her that he plans on sweeping Nicole off of her feet in Chicago and show her the kind of life he can give her. Kate says he is going to make a fool of himself.
Lucas says that he loves Will and Nicole and plans on making them his family. Kate says she just wants to see him happy and wishes him luck and leaves. He says that when they return, Eric and Sami will be the big losers and get exactly what those "self-righteous Brady Brats" deserve.
Alone, Nicole is happy as she thinks about Eric, but she also starts thinking about Lucas. She convinces herself, however that it is Eric that she loves...besides, what is more important than love? She continues to daydream of her life with Eric and domestic bliss. She smiles sweetly thinking about their future and says it may not be the future that she dreamed of and tries to convince herself that she can live a happy life without fame and money.
She is sure that now that she and Eric are engaged, Lucas will back off and give up on her...Unless...she flashes back to their discussion about her past and fears that he may try to blackmail her. She thinks long and hard about Lucas's warning that Eric will leave her when he finds out the truth. She flashes forward to the future and Eric is holding a tabloid with her story on the front page. He is furious with her. He tells her thank God that they don't have any children yet. He calls her a piece of trash and takes off his ring and throws it at her on his way out. She is crying and pleading with him to let her explain. Back to real life, she is terrified and clearly shaken as Eric returns from Titan. She rushes into his arms and holds on for dear life.
Taylor questions his announcement that Eric and Nicole are engaged. She says he just can't marry her...they are rushing into it. But Eric is determined and says that he is sure that Nicole is the woman for him. Taylor brings up the trust issue, but Eric is blinded by love and tells Taylor that he and Nicole are totally honest with each other now. Taylor says that she just doesn't want to see him get hurt. He assures her that he won't. She says that her sister is lucky to have him. He thanks her and tells her that there is some lucky guy out there for her too. As he hugs her, she looks like she has been crushed. She asks him if they have set a date and Eric says the sooner the better.
As he leaves, she congratulates him and wishes him happiness. With a peck on her check, he is out the door. Once he's gone, she falls to pieces and cries her heart out. On her way out, Taylor runs into Kate in the hallway. Kate can tell that she has been crying and asks her what is wrong. She tells her about the engagement. She says it is stupid, but she just doesn't feel that they are right for each other. Kate agrees and asks her not to tell Lucas. She says he will be devastated. She says that she will tell him when the time is right.
"Hope" tells John that this time he will remember. As Marlena prepares to put him under, Bo asks why "Hope" is so eager for John to remember. She says that her whole future is at stake. She tries to explain about the memory flashes she is having and plays the pity routine. It works and Bo ends up apologizing to her. She tells them that John is the only one who can help her. "Gina" is thrilled...thinking that this time, John WILL remember. Once John is under, Marlena encourages her to tell what she remembers. She describes the room and drinking champagne. John chuckles and "Gina" is thrilled that it is working. John says that he is with Gina and that she looks exactly like Hope.
They are talking about how their plan worked and now they can just enjoy the rest of the evening. Marlena questions him about what he means by the "plan" and Bo says that if John remembers this may help them learn just what they did for Stefano. Marlena encourages him as he remembers dancing with Gina to the waltz and him giving her a present. It is in a gold box with a red ribbon on it. As "Hope" remembers, we see that when she opens the box, it is the silver compact with the G on it. Marlena asks John what the gift was, but he can't remember. As he goes to see, the light reflects off the gold box and blinds him (causing him to writhe in pain in real time). "Hope" shouts "Oh, God John...Not again!" and Marlena eyes her suspiciously, wondering what that meant.
Austin and Roman talk about Roberto's condition and Austin tells him about his visit (and Will's) with Sami. Austin tells Roman about the upcoming custody hearing and that he plans on fighting for custody. He says that Sami and Will are his family. Roman asks him what about Carrie? Austin tells him that Carrie has given up on them and is now with Mike. Roman tries to convince him not to give up on their marriage and that his running away with Sami was a huge mistake and may have been what finally pushed Carrie into Mike's arms. Austin tries to justify his actions and ends up getting mad and turns to leave.
Roman stops him when Austin says that he had no choice. Roman tells him that he DID have a choice...he just made the WRONG choice. He tries to explain things from Carrie's point of view. This infuriates Austin, but Roman tells him that they BOTH have to take responsibility for their actions. He tells him about when he turned his back on Marlena and wallowed in self pity. He says that he gave up on her and it is something he will never recover from and will always wonder 'what if..' He tells Austin not to let his pride get in the way.
Austin admits that he does still love Carrie and that he finally realizes that it was wrong for him to turn his back on her and run off with Sami...he never stopped to realize just how much it would hurt her. Roman says for him to tell HER that...or just give up and always wonder what might have been. Roman says he knows he is a fighter...why not fight for his wife? Austin agrees. Roman wishes him luck and leaves.
We get a replay of yesterday's final scene of Mike finding Carrie at his door. He asks her why she is there and she says the same reason you came to my door and kisses him. He says he's not going to let her leave and she asks him to make love to her. He pulls her inside and the do some hot and heavy kissing. He picks her up and carries her to the bed. The robes fall to the floor as the kissing continues. On the bed, Mike stops abruptly and says that it isn't right. Mike says that he wants her more than anything, but it must be perfect.
She asks him again to make love to her and that's all he needs. They begin kissing again and fall to the bed as the bed begins floating through space and the stars. It launches into a long montage of Mike and Carrie scenes from the past year. It ends back in real time, with them kissing on the bed as the bed spins through the stars and ends in a bright starburst.
Carrie says that she never wants this night to end. Mike says that the night will end, but their love and new lives begin tonight and he promises her that will NEVER end.
John comes out of the session with a severe migraine, so "Hope" massages his temples. Marlena asks her what she thinks she's doing? "Hope" says she was trying to help John. John says it is helping. Marlena asks John if he's all right? John says he is. Bo asks "Hope" why she said "No, not again?" "Hope" says she ran into John earlier when he had a migraine, and massaging his temples helped. Marlena becomes concerned and wants to have John checked out, and she says there will be no more hypnosis until then. "Hope" begs John not to stop now, not when he's on the verge of a breakthrough. "Hope" asks John if he saw Gina's gift, but John says he didn't. "Hope" asks Marlena to hypnotize John again, but Marlena refuses until John gets checked out. Bo and "Hope" decide to leave for the night, and hope John feels better. John tells Marlena not to worry he is fine. However, Marlena says that he should have told her about the headaches. John says he didn't want her to worry like she is now. Marlena says "what did you expect, I'm your wife." She then says she really wants to be his wife. John promises her that it will happen.
Bo and "Hope" take a walk and Bo asks "Hope" if she knows what the gift is? "Hope" tells him that she doesn't. Bo asks "Hope" if she thinks John and Gina were lovers? "Hope" says that's impossible, he was a priest. "Hope" then remembers spending time with John and talking about how "Father John" is a fraud. Gina tells John that she longs for the day when they have to stop pretending and can be together all the time. Bo snaps "Hope" to and asks her what is wrong. "Hope" says that it has just been an emotional night. "Hope" tells Bo that she feels like they are on the verge of a breakthrough, they have to convince Marlena to hypnotize John again. Bo doesn't think that will happen. Gina tells herself that she doesn't need Marlena, she needs the compact. She thinks that when he sees it, John will remember everything.
Kate pays a visit to Victor and tells him about Nicole's engagement to Eric, and her fears that Lucas will do something terrible when he finds out. Kate also says that if Lucas doesn't get married, he could lose Will. Kate doesn't like to think about Lucas marrying Nicole, but Victor tells her that there may be no other choice. Victor suggests that Eric see the private investigator's report on Nicole, but Kate says it could backfire and Eric could still marry Nicole. Victor tells Kate that he has a way to help Lucas, but his plan depends on her. When Kate hears Victor's plan, she flat out refuses to do it. Victor tells her that she has no other choice.
Lucas is walking through Salem Place thinking about Nicole. He tells himself that he won't use the dirt on Nicole to get her to marry him. Suddenly, Taylor runs right into Lucas. He asks her what is wrong? Is it Eric and Nicole? Taylor tells Lucas that it's just been a bad day. Lucas offers to buy her a cup of coffee and cheer her up. Lucas tells Taylor that Will's custody hearing is tomorrow and he has 48 hours to convince Nicole to marry him. Taylor tells him that it is too late. Lucas asks why? Taylor tells him that Nicole and Eric are getting serious. She asks him why he's so desperate to get Nicole away from Eric?
