When Jack saw Frankie and Jennifer reminiscing about the past, a worried Frankie insisted that he did not want Jack to get the wrong idea about his relationship with Jennifer. A smiling Jack told them both that he hoped they would always be close and that Frankie could stay as long as he would like. Overly happy, Jack exclaimed that he would go make his famous jalapeno dip. While Jack contemplated how perfect Frankie would be for Jennifer after he passed, Jennifer and Frankie wondered what was wrong with Jack. Later, Jack brought out his jalapeno dip to play truth or dare with. Jack asked Frankie what his perfect woman was. When Frankie described her, Jack said, "In other words, Jennifer!" Uncomfortable, Frankie took a big bite of dip and nearly choked on it. After a gulp of water, Frankie asked Jack where he saw himself in five years and a confident Jack said, "Heaven!" When Jennifer questioned his answer, Jack told her he meant with his family because it was like heaven. Suspicious and a touch uncomfortable, Jennifer broke out the Scrabble board and the threesome had a fun time playing. Jack daydreamed about Frankie being his children's stepdad and playing scrabble with Jennifer and Jack's photo. After Frankie and Jennifer tied the game, Jack dressed up in his cowboy gear and insisted they enter the dance contest at Alice's.

At Salem Hospital, Lexie informed the group that she couldn't save the baby. When John asked about Marlena's condition, a downbeat Lexie said she was still critical. John went in to see Marlena, and Sami stayed behind to berate Kate. Roman begged her to leave Kate alone since there was enough blame to go around for everybody. The two parted and Kate walked to the corner to talk to Philip who recommended she support Roman. A stoic Kate said it wasn't her place and ran off to the cafeteria.

Inside Marlena's room, John talked to Marlena who woke up. Soon after, John told Marlena about the miscarriage and she broke down into tears in Belle's arms. The crying was brief as Marlena went catatonic, staring straight ahead without acknowledging anyone. Belle and John left the room so Lexie could examine Marlena.

In the Salem Hospital cafeteria, Rex and Mimi talked about Marlena. Soon, Rex once again asked about Mimi's secret and Mimi put him off until Philip came in and told them about Marlena's miscarriage. As Rex and Mimi went off to check on Marlena, Philip went over to Kate and asked her about being there for Roman. A tearful Kate admitted things would have been worse if Marlena had had the baby. Sami overheard Kate's statement and swore to tell Roman what an evil woman he was married to.

In the hallway outside Marlena's room, an increasingly pained Belle clutched her stomach. Moments later, Lexie called a code blue on Marlena who was in cardiac arrest. Overwhelmed, Belle passed out into Shawn's arms as Philip sat helplessly by watching.

Lexie informed the group that Marlena's injuries were more serious than she thought, but specialists were on the way. A worried Philip asked about Belle and Lexie said they were running tests but that she should be fine. Philip went in to see her and Shawn asked him if he could tag along. Philip reluctantly agreed and they went in to find a smiling Belle. When Philip blamed himself for Belle's ulcer, Shawn tried to take some of the blame too, raising Philip's suspicions. Belle brushed it off and asked for Mimi.

Back in the cafeteria, Roman showed up and chided Sami for not staying away from Kate like he had asked her to do. When Sami told Roman that Kate admitted she was glad Marlena lost the baby, Roman told her to shut up and stop telling him what to do. As the fight began to escalate, Rex ran in to tell them about Marlena's cardiac arrest.

Mimi went in to visit Belle and update her on Marlena's condition. Seeing Mimi's sad face, Belle asked her if the situation reminded her about her own baby. When Mimi admitted that it did, Belle asked her why she still had not told Rex. Mimi exclaimed that she was afraid to lose him but a frustrated Belle said if she kept lying she would lose him anyway because lies destroy relationships. "You were pregnant with Rex's baby and he deserves to know," Belle said just as Rex walked in. Devastated, Rex asked her about it, to which a stuttering Mimi tried to cover. Fed up, Belle wouldn't cover for her and Mimi was forced to admit that it was true. Hurt, Rex ran out leaving a fuming Mimi to tell Belle, "Damn you, Belle!" A tearful Mimi ran out after Rex, while a relieved Belle was comforted by Shawn. Belle admitted she dreamed of her future with Shawn and promised to ask for an annulment from Philip once he had recovered. Optimistic, the two kissed.

Mimi caught up with Rex down the hallway and he demanded to know when she was pregnant and why she did not tell him about it. Beginning to understand, Rex stated that she was never going to tell him. Her silence speaking volumes, Rex asked why she did not tell him. When Mimi began to explain that at the time he said he wanted kids SOMEday, he realized the situation and asked her if she had an abortion. Looking him in the eyes, Mimi said, "Yes."

The tests came back on Belle and the nurses discussed the results. "Belle doesn't have an ulcer. She's pregnant!" the nurse said.

Back in Marlena's room, John spoke to Marlena promising to make everything right. Sami entered with Roman and a tearful Sami pleaded with her mother to come back to them. Kate entered the room and lurked at the back, just in time for Marlena to wake up and look at her. After a minute, Marlena looked around at everyone and finally asked them, "What are you all doing here? And who are you?"

Sobbing, Mimi arrives home and looks for Rex. When she finds his keys instead, she realizes he's gone for good. She calls his cell phone and leaves a message. When she finds a photograph of herself and Belle, she screams blame. There's a knock at the door. It's not Rex, but Bonnie, asking after him. Bonnie comforts Mimi, then shows her Rex's letter of resignation. Mimi says Belle told him about the abortion; Belle thinks only of herself. Bonnie points out how Belle is caring for Philip. Mimi recounts how Belle repeatedly switches off between Philip and Shawn. It's disgusting! Mimi hopes they'll get wise and leave her, the way Rex left Mimi. Now, she will spend her life alone. Bonnie reminds her that Lockharts don't wallow. Rex wasn't the only bull at the rodeo. The perfect man for Mimi is still there. Mimi groans because she means Shawn. Bonnie explains Shawn will realize Belle doesn't have the guts to leave injured Philip. Then, Shawn will turn to childhood friend Mimi. Mimi says Bonnie just wants her to have access to Shawn's Horton and Kiriakis trust funds. Bonnie says it's just as easy to love a rich man as a poor one. Mimi throws her out, then resumes crying. Who should walk in but Shawn, who had been across the hall. He is flabbergasted about Rex leaving town. Mimi places the fault with Shawn's girlfriend. Belle purposefully blabbed, even though Mimi has kept all of Belle's secrets. Shawn says Belle has a lot on her mind. He tries to assure Mimi that Rex will return. Mimi tells him about the Chicago job offer. As she cries, Shawn holds her and says Philip doesn't know. Mimi wants to rush right over in case Rex calls Philip. Shawn urges her to wait; Rex is sure to call her after he calms down.

Shawn carries groceries as he accompanies Belle and Philip into their apartment. Philip calls Austin to give him an update on Kate. Shawn puts away the groceries. Belle makes a smoothie with which Philip can take his medication. She refuses to discuss their relationship because she's carrying Philip's baby. She wants to tell Philip in private, and won't wait. Philip thanks Shawn and Belle walks him out. Philip eyes them, perhaps suspiciously, perhaps knowingly. Belle tells Shawn she is no longer sure of her future with him. Philip says he thought Shawn would never leave. He can tell there's something on Belle's mind. She tries to prepare him for bad news. But Philip is excited: the baby is a reward for the hardship they endured. It will strengthen their bond. Belle flashes back to times when she declared her love for Shawn and promised to tell Philip. She thinks having the baby is a huge mistake. She lies that she's scared - what if she's not ready to be a mom? Philip wants the truth. Belle begins, "I'm still..." But Mimi barges in, yelling about Rex. Belle tries to explain, but Mimi screams at her to shut up. Perfect Belle always has excuses - nothing is ever her fault. Well, this is, only Belle is too selfish to see it. Belle says Mimi is the selfish one. If she had told Rex long ago, he wouldn't have left her. Mimi slaps Belle. How dare she! It's Belle's fault and Mimi will never forgive her, never!

In her apartment, Sami tries to come up with a plan to expose Kate. With her cell phone's camera and voice recording capability, she is prepared for revenge. Unfortunately, Lucas arrives in time to hear this last. Lucas meant to cut Sami some slack because her mom was hospitalized. But Sami's priorities are out of whack. They argue over whose mom has it worse. Kate's husband impregnated Marlena; Marlena miscarried and has amnesia. Lucas chastises Sami. Marlena would prefer that Sami help her rather than target Kate. The baby's death isn't Kate's fault. Sami stipulates; Roman told her as much. But Kate is a monster for believing the miscarriage was for the best...and for ruining Sami's wedding. Lucas warns her not to frame his mom. He takes a call from his headhunter. Sami thinks aloud: unlike Lucas, she knows what Mommie Dearest is capable of. Sami flashes back to Eugenia crowing that she helped Kate ruin Sami, and she'd be happy to do it again. Sami wrinkles her brow, but her face clears as she settles on a good idea. Lucas knows that look: Sami has a plan. He urges her to stay out of trouble, then leaves to follow up on the job lead. Sami plots aloud: Lucas needn't worry, but Kate should. And Sami knows just whom to enlist on her behalf.

John tells a sleeping Marlena he will remain at her (bed)side until she recovers. Roman refuses to leave, because the baby was his. Kate overhears him say that no one can stop him. Roman admits John has more right to be there. They remove themselves to the corridor. Does Roman want Marlena to think they're still married? Roman wants to help Marlena so she doesn't end up like John: DiMera's amnesiac assassin. The fall and its aftermath are Roman's fault. John accuses Roman of manipulating Marlena into sex. Roman says all he did was say yes when Marlena asked him to make love to her. John laughs mirthlessly, covers his eyes, then rounds on Roman. They trade punches. Screaming at them to stop, Kate tries to push them apart. They stop when she says they'll be thrown out. Roman apologizes and says John owes him an apology as well. John refuses, as Roman has besmirched Marlena's character. Roman says just as Stefano wanted to break them up years ago, now Tony wanted to reunite them. The psychological manipulation was Tony's. All Roman and Marlena talked about was returning home to their spouses. Until...Tony showed them the live feed. The situations were parallel, as John as making love to Roman's wife. Even worse, it meant there was no rescue mission. John is disgusted. While he and Kate were grieving, their spouses willfully committed adultery. John returns to Marlena and Roman looks to Kate for understanding. Instead, Kate asks if Roman stopped for a second to think about her. She is his every thought. Even while he was making love to his ex-wife? Roman starts to answer, but one of the nurses goes into Marlena's room. He stares after her, and Kate has her answer. Deep down, Roman would have been happier had he remained castle-bound with Marlena. The nurse offers John a cot, but he wants to be wakeful in case Marlena should need him. He tells Marlena not to be afraid - he isn't angry. Tony victimized Marlena, and Roman took advantage of her. John vows to make Roman pay.
