Victor assures Nicole that once her divorce is settled, they will be married and he will take great pleasure in ruining Kate and Sami's lives. Bo catches Billie as she handles Hope's itinerary and accuses her of being involved in Hope's disappearance. Roman orders her to back off and then suggests that Bo use Billie so he can keep an eye on her. At the mansion Lexie decides not to tell Abe that someone is setting her up and instead, asks him to drop the divorce proceedings. Abe offers her more time to consider helping them find Hope and Zack. After he leaves, Lexie threatens Bart and demands that he tell her all he knows about the kidnapping but he insists he knows nothing. She then wonders if this could be Rolf's scheme. Abe returns to the station house and tells Bo and Roman that he will take care of investigating his wife, especially after Bo threatens to strangle confession out of her. Concerned about her continuing with her work with the twins, John offers Marlena some special high-tech inventions to help her spy on Tony and then turns some playfulness into a romantic lovemaking session. Kate announces to Lucas that she has joined forces with Sami to stop Victor from marrying Nicole but intends to hurt Sami too. Billie stops by and, discussing Roman, reminds Kate about past mistakes she's made with men. Roman tries to make up with Billie for what Bo said earlier. She later calls Larry about the close call at the station.
Sami returned to find Kate at the Java Cafe contacting Eric hoping to use his past with Nicole to stop to the marriage to Victor. Lucas surprised them with the announcement not just that his divorce from Nicole was nearly final, but that he's taking Victor's side - since he owes him for his help in taking Will from Sami.
At Salem U - Brady handed Chloe a mysterious envelope she dropped inviting her to go to the Java Café for more clues...Chloe had her suspicions who was behind it, but had no idea that Philip was watching her every move. Chloe and Mimi convinced Philip to help them "crush the crushes" Rex and Cassie have on Belle and Shawn. The plan is for Philip and Chloe to invite Cassie and Rex to a Halloween party.
Scheming to humiliate Rex and Cassie, Cynthia didn't see an intruder disguised as The Grim Reaper hiding as she rummaged through Belle's closet. Minutes later, The Reaper emerged with a tracking device to find the infamous blue key lying on the floor in the Belle's room. As he removed his mask, the voice of Dr. Rolf declared, "Mission accomplished... The Phoenix has risen."
At University Hospital - Jen insisted that Colin isn't involved with the DiMeras. Still suspicious, Jack taped a telephone conversation of Colin discussing putting a plan into motion. The conversation and his medical connection to Tony was explained away by Colin, who then put Jennifer on the defensive demanding her trust.
Seeing Sami and Brandon reunited at the Java, Nicole still tried to persuade her brother to give Sami up - While Kate and Sami decided that without the incriminating photos - their only weapon was to convince Victor of Nicole's infidelity. And, as Cassie and Rex started their Bioethics/Genetics Class, the students' instructor introduced himself as Prof. Charles Putnam - but was in reality, Dr. Rolf in disguise.
Colin delivers to Tony a bottle of truth serum to use on Marlena. Meanwhile, outside in a van, John waits to listen to Marlena and Tony using the listening device in her earring. When Marlena arrives, Colin secretly exits. She fails to drink the serum-laced water. Alone for a moment, Marlena snoops and finds the photos of the island and remembers the sound of waves which triggers her into her own "fugue state." Knocking her earring into the glass of water, Marlena mumbles to Tony that Stefano has put her to sleep to save the future of the DiMeras. When she wakes, Tony decides not to tell her what she said. John rushes to rescue her and she later mentions being disoriented but can't remember why. Disguised as Professor Putnam, Rolf lectures the class about making fun of Cassie and Rex. Belle and Shawn are suspicious when the professor asks to speak to the twins after class. Belle has a nagging feeling that she's met the professor before. In his office, he puts the recovering wristbands on them and as they sit in a trance, orders them to use their strength against any of their enemies. They come out of their trance and have no memory of what happened while Rolf awaits the arrival of Halloween. Chloe continues her scavenger hunt search and picks up a Mardi Gras mask, a dress and finally a candelabra because of the clues left for her. Brady argues with Philip about following Chloe. Chloe ends up collecting a lace dress, a mask and a candelabra and ends up at the pier where Brady, not Philip surprises her.
