DotCom was the setting for several meetings: Kate & Lucas took a break from visiting comatose / possibly brain damaged Billie; Nancy and Craig were having coffee; and Jennifer and Colin. Colin told Jen his only connection to the DiMeras was as a doctor. He said he was unable to see Tony because he was too grief-stricken after Lexie's murder. Nancy offered her support to Kate mother to mother. Meantime, Craig - noticing Sykes walk in and recognizing him from a picture - was eager to follow him. But he was stopped by Colin to discuss a change in hospital assignment which would affect Colin's responsibility to his "personal" patients.

Brady and Chloe's trip to Hollywood was diverted to Denver due to weather conditions, and they chose to treat the change in plans as an adventure and a blessing. As they continued to bond, their first night in Denver was spent in a stalled 4 x 4.

On Stefano's Island a frantic John found Marlena in a hidden room behind a fireplace panel. She could not recall a memory she'd had just moments before seeing herself in a bed in that room - but on a different island - and hearing a strange voice calling her. Two sets of fingerprints taken by John showed that she had been there years before as well as now. Once out of the room, Marlena watched a seascape painting eerily change to her portrait. Not seeing it himself, John attributed this to Stefano's "mind games."

Leaving DotCom, Colin offered his support to Jennifer - distraught over her Cousin Hope. Jennifer left him saying she just wanted justice served. Once alone, Colin's hope was that they lock up his Cousin Bo and throw away the key "That would certainly make my life a lot easier."

Realizing he was being followed, Sykes did his best to escape. But Craig cornered him in a barn, where Sykes accidentally stepped into an animal trap crushing his foot. As he begged for help, Craig seemed pleased to see Sykes' leg had blood on it - and left him there. And while John investigated a sound on the Island, he returned to find Marlena missing again and what appeared to be the image of Tony DiMera in a mirror.

Jack, Jennifer, Belle and Shawn spend some time at Dot Com before Bo's hearing. Shawn struggles because he knows Bo doesn't want him there, while Jennifer admits to Jack that she spent time with Colin last night; he wants details, but Jennifer is too focused on Bo's current dilemma. Later, Shawn asks Jack and Jennifer for a ride to the hearing... Bo tells Roman and Caroline that he has nothing to live for without Hope and plans to plead guilty for killing Lexie; Mickey begs Bo to reconsider and Caroline reminds Bo that he has two sons that need their father. Meanwhile, Cameron is rueful that she didn't prevent Lexie's murder and tells Abe and Celeste she wants to sue the police force, but Abe doesn't want that, in spite of his own personal loss. When they arrive at the arraignment, Bo allows Mickey to plead not guilty for him. The DA is ruthless and Mickey asks that the charge be lessened to second-degree murder with a reasonable bail. Shawn shows up with Jack and Jennifer in time to hear the judge rule that the first-degree charge stands and Bo will be sent to jail without bail...

Hope's devastated when Larry comes in with news that Bo has been arrested for Lexie's murder and Billie is practically brain dead. Larry taunts her further by telling her that everyone thinks she's dead, too; worried that Billie could wake up and disclose his location, Larry struggles to force Hope out of the warehouse and discovers her inscription on the wall, indicating that she's being taken away by boat. Larry is furious and scratches out the message, leaving Hope fearful that her possible rescue has been foiled...

In the mountains, a cowboy driving a carriage rescues Brady and Chloe. They enjoy a hayride and then he takes them to a cabin, where they wait to get a phone line to call a tow truck...

Sami and Brandon wake up in the afterglow of being together for the first time. Feeling guilty about his affair with Lexie, he almost tells Sami, but refrains because it might hurt her too much. Instead, they make love again; the mood is destroyed when they order room service and Brandon sees the headline about Lexie's murder, telling Sami he has to get back to Salem now...
