Bo continued tailing Vin Ramsel and was going through his hotel room when he was overcome by several thugs. As the hotel owner sanctioned the gang tossing Bo out of the hotel, Bo didn't realize he'd lost his cell phone. Going through Bo's things, and realizing who Bo was, Ramsel was determined to kill him.

At the Penthouse Grill, Mickey gave a beaming Jennifer away to Jack. Surprising his bride, Jack touched family members by reading the words Jen had said to him when they'd first married. And with a little help from Abby, Jen pledged her love to Jack.

Despite the celebration, both Marlena and Kate were distracted by thoughts of Tony's affect on their families. John confronted Lucas regarding his affiliation with Tony. Unsuccessful at convincing John that his work was legitimate, Lucas turned to remind Victor about honoring the deal they'd made. Trying to learn what she could about the deal, Nicole was threatened by Victor if she continued to pry.

At the DiMera Mansion, a delivery came for Rex. Intent on watching the televised wedding, Tony did not hear Rex reveal the contents to Mimi - DNA confirmation that Marlena is not his mother. Eager to learn if he was a DiMera, Rex got a sample of blood by letting a slicing knife cut Tony's hand. Suspicious about Rex, Tony was taken off-guard by Cassie's observation that he kept his eyes on Marlena during the wedding. A visit to Echelon surprised Tony with an unexpected face - for he was seeing Marlena instead of the women of Echelon. Tony announced he wouldn't return there because he had somebody else on his mind.

And as wedding traditions continued at the Penthouse Grill - Kate caught the bouquet !

Bo and Hope were camped away from danger, planning a strategy to get Vin Ramsell, and debating whether or not Hope should return home. Thinking they were safe for the night - a sleeping Bo was unaware of a gun pointed to his head.

At University Hospital, Abe and Lexie were enjoying the new baby while Lucas learned about the paternity test switch from Eugenia. Thrilled to have Sami's fate locked up, Lucas assured a relieved Eugenia she would not lose her job. Arriving to visit his new nephew, Tony was met by Lucas who was eager to tell him about Sami. But although Lucas tried to discuss how it would affect Tony's family, Tony left any action to Lucas' discretion. Lucas phoned Kate and Nicole to have them there for Sami's downfall.

Fearful of losing Brandon once the paternity results were revealed, Sami made an emotional plea that they elope immediately - weeks before their scheduled wedding date. Although he was confused about her motives, Brandon finally gave in.

Before leaving her locked room to join Victor, Nicole received the invitation call from Lucas. As she tried escaping through a window, Victor walked in and gave her a head start by pushing her out - to a waiting Nico below who caught her. Not expecting it, Nicole got permission from her husband to join Lucas and Kate. But when the "gruesome threesome" - as Tony called them - found Sami and Brandon gone, Lucas realized Eugenia's planned announcement had sent Sami running.

Lexie felt a need to be honest with Abe and admitted having slept with Brandon. And at the DiMera Mansion, Rex was ruling out guests at "the luncheon" when DNA results showed he was not related to Belle, Marlena or Tony.
