He baits Jack with the paper and later anonymously gives Jack and Jennifer all the information on the twins to run in The Spectator. Meanwhile, John is befuddled when Spector shows him the security tapes and he sees that Sami was near the area, fearing she may be the leak. He confronts her, but she covers about getting lost while delivering a report to the morgue. Lucas also takes a couple shots at Sami and they blame each other for Will's behavior. Jennifer questions Colin about the twins and he continues the pretense of being honest. While Jack's attempt to get into the basement is foiled, Tony surprises John down there and points out all the coincidences regarding the Gemini twins; Tony thinks that they may be connected to his father and offers a subtle suggestion that he and John work together to find the "key" that will unlock this mystery...

He confides that he's suspicious of Sami, but can't prove it. Later, he announces that the twins are not a threat and that they're definitely human. Back at the loft, Brady and Chloe are forced to deal with their feelings as Isabella watches them; they agree there's chemistry, but the priority has to be to find Chloe a bone marrow match.

Shawn wakes Belle up with a kiss; a hung over Philip barreling into the room interrupts them. Philip swears off drinking and Chloe- cold turkey. He thinks that if Shawn and Belle can overcome so much and together, so can they. He promises not to make the same mistakes again. The trio gets dressed and heads to the Homecoming 2002 "Heartbreaker" Awards. Cynthia is there with Dozer, she is sure she won. The winner is announced. Isabella Black. Belle is stunned. She goes to accept her 'award' and is given a paper heart that is to be torn in half. She refuses, remembering her 'I Love You' heart from Shawn. You have too, it's tradition, she's told. Cynthia thinks the contest is rigged. She tells the group that Belle has to live up to her title, to break someone's heart this year. Pointedly looking at Shawn, Cynthia wonders who the poor guy will be. The president of Hartley House tells Cynthia to grow up and act like a college student, not a high school student. Everyone laughs and Belle leads the way to the football game. Dozer asks Cynthia to the parties after the game. She tells him if he wants to date her he has to get Belle to break someone's heart.

Sami surprises Brandon with a brochure for a romantic getaway. He agrees to go when she tells him it's all paid for. As they hug, Victor and Nicole appear. Nicole asks to talk to Sami alone. Brandon refuses, but after Nicole gives a believable excuse for the talk (She wants to apologize to Sami for everything). The girls head to the terrace. But all is less than cozy. Nicole blames Sami for her infertility. Sami denies everything claiming she never pushed Nicole toward the bullet and that she was only defending herself in the morgue because Nicole was trying to kill her. They try to come to a compromise, both keep their mouths quiet and all will be well. Nicole isn't playing; she demands the photos of her and Colin plus the cassette tape Sami made in the hospital. She gives Sami one half hour or she talks. Brandon meets Sami back inside and is surprised to see her upset, Sami excuses it as worry for Nicole and leaves. Victor takes Nicole back to her room, Sami arrives and Nicole sends Victor on a teddy bear mission. Sami hands over the pictures and tape, which Nicole destroys and throws away. Sami confirms that Nicole will never say anything to Brandon. Nicole agrees, but has her fingers crossed behind her back. As Sami goes out the door she runs into Kate. Through an unusually civil conversation, Kate and Sami realize they both have a common enemy-Nicole Walker. As they eavesdrop on Nicole and Victor's conversation they learn their possible fate. Victor plans to destroy them as a wedding gift to Nicole.

Marlena telephones John at Basic Black telling him to come and get her; she is ready to go home. He excuses himself from a short meeting with Kate, (concerning Titan via Nicole taking all of Basic Black's accounts, Kate promised in a month she would have them all and more.) and heads to the hospital. A bittersweet reunion for the two, Marlena has other agendas. Due to the success of Cassie and Rex, Marlena feels the hospital will not help them gain any more memories lost due to amnesia. The twins tell John and Spector their wish is to leave their "room." Shock befalls the two men, but after a little talking by Marlena, Spector leaves to sign release forms. John wants to know where the twins will go, considering they have no family, no home, no connections or any memories if they did. Marlena throws another curveball by announcing that Cassie and Rex can move into the penthouse, stating they do have two empty rooms since Belle and Brady are gone. John strongly disagrees -"over my dead body."
