A reluctant Chloe arrived at her bridal shower at Alice's, and Belle greeted her with open arms. Chloe was worried her scars were worse, but Belle told her that it would not matter because Brady would still think she was beautiful and marry her no matter what.

At a nearby table, Sami was unhappy that she had to share her bridal shower with Chloe. Grandma Caroline told her it was a miracle that Chloe was not dead, but Sami disputed that by saying that Roman, Jack, and the rest of them not being dead was a miracle but Chloe's death was her own faking. Caroline asked her what was really wrong and Sami admitted she was nervous that another wedding would go south. A smiling Caroline toasted Sami and Lucas and told her things would work this time because their relationship was built on love, give and take, truth, and honesty. Kate stopped by to remind Sami that she was a disaster before sauntering off, and Caroline held Sami back by reminding her that Kate had her own problems.

A sullen Chelsea stood in the corner with Abby at the party, complaining that her new mother was after Patrick. Additionally, Chelsea felt that her grandmother Kate was even worse since she refused to give her a job. Abby reminded her that they were her biological parents whether she wanted them to be or not. Later Kate stopped by and asked Chelsea if they could meet later. Barely showing her distaste, Chelsea reminded Kate that they had already met when she asked for a job and Kate turned her down. Kate immediately apologized for being rude and said that had she known she was Billie's daughter, things would have been quite different that day. Glaring, Chelsea looked at Billie when she came over and asked, "How do you lose your daughter?" Uneasy, Billie told her that it was personal and she would prefer to fill Chelsea in later in private. Still, Billie did manage to explain the DiMeras were involved and that she and Bo believed Chelsea was stillborn. When Chelsea mentioned that she called her dead mother mom and did not know what to call Billie, Billie suggested she just call her Billie. Chelsea agreed and asked for more time before walking over to the corner with Abby. Once out of earshot, Chelsea admitted to Abby that this was the best thing to happen to her because now she could get money out of her new family.

While Shawn was tending bar at the party, Kate went over to remind him, "Belle is married to my son. Don't forget that." After Kate stalked off, Bonnie came over to comfort Shawn by telling him that "trash is trash" about Kate, and then sent him over to the bachelor party. He left and Bonnie made a phone call to some strippers. When Shawn later returned, he saw Belle having a good time, and smiling, Shawn told Mimi that he could not work at the job anymore.

A little later, the strippers arrived, and one of them was Bart dressed in disguise with a Zorro mask and a cowboy hat. Both stripped and danced, but while the one entertained, Bart snuck off to Sami's table where she rebuffed him. Insulted, Bart lifted his mask and told Sami he had a message for her from Tony. Sami was not interested but Bart dragged her off while a disgusted Kate watched. Out on the terrace, Bart told Sami that she had better hope Tony escaped his transfer. In return, Bart promised to return her Stan disguise so she could destroy it and the DNA which was all over it.

At their home, Bo told Hope that Chelsea believed she was Bo and Billie's daughter, but she still hated them. Hope told Bo to be careful of Billie, but Bo told Hope to give Billie a break. Hope apologized but said she could not forget the gas incident. Bo said that Hope did not need to trust Billie but just trust him. Hope worried that Bo was blind to his daughter's faults and warned him that Chelsea was smart and manipulative, and that Jennifer agreed with her assessment. Bo disagreed and insisted she was having a hard time adjusting to everything that was going on and that she was acting out. When Hope was still suspicious, Bo told her he felt that she just did not like that fact that she was Billie and his daughter. Hope disagreed and said his guilt let him overlook Chelsea's issues. Hugging his wife, Bo said they just needed to all pull together because they now had another child to share their lives with.

At the bachelor party at Alice's, Phil congratulated Brady on his wedding. Later, Victor found Philip and told him how proud he was of him. Then Bo joined the party and told Philip and Victor that he had found Georgia. Then there was more good news when Philip received a phone call from the waiting list to tell him they found him a better prosthetic leg for him.

On the other side of the room, Roman continued to berate John for letting Marlena go up to the cabin with Alex. John admitted it may have been a mistake but that he trusted Lexie's judgment. Roman could not shake the feeling that something was wrong, and John argued that Roman was just upset that it was not Roman's decision to make. Angry, he told Roman that after he took advantage of Marlena and getting her pregnant, if anything went wrong, he would hold Roman responsible. After Roman left, John got a phone call with news about Alex.

Up at the cabin, Marlena told Alex that she trusted him implicitly and that it was a relief to be away from the torture and stress of her family. She further said that Alex reassured her because he gave her the freedom to be okay with not remembering her life. Alex reminded her that John kept calling and Marlena said that she had listened to his messages. She then explained that she felt bad that she did not want to go to her children's weddings, but Alex told her that it was not her fault and that it could not be helped. Alex then proceeded to put Marlena on a table and use hot rock therapy on her back to relax her. Once relaxed and dressed again, he put something in her herbal tea and gave it to her to drink. After sipping her tea and allowing him to use hypnotherapy on her, Alex asked her to remember her life from long ago, which she had forgotten and no one knew about. He told her to remember the man she loved back then, and Marlena's mind was flooded with memories of making love to Alex. She whispered, "It's you," and the two began to kiss for real. Suddenly, a stunned John came through the cabin door and saw Marlena sitting on the couch, passionately kissing Alex.
