At The Brady Pub, Hope tried to make Bo understand that being a nun was not right for Colleen. It may have been at one time but once Santo came along, the plans went out the window, so to speak. Bo argued that she was a nun and Hope made the comparison of how their relationship was in the beginning compared to Santo and Colleen. Bo was a bad boy on a motorcycle and hope was a good girl from a rich family. To make Bo understand the attraction Colleen had for Santo, she used the analogy of Santo riding up on a motorcycle, just like Bo used to do.
The flashback continues: Santo and Colleen went for their picnic and let Shawn and Stefano play. Colleen was very worried about getting caught without a chaperone. Santo kept trying to dismiss it and Colleen basically told him that she is on to him as to why he wants to spend time with her.
Bo says that he doesn't like being compared to Santo. Hope says that she wonders if Colleen wanted Santo the way Hope wanted Bo back then. Bo says he doubts it because she made a promise to God. Hope points out that Colleen was a novice nun and still a woman. They decided to keep reading the letter.
More flashback: Santo assured her that he just wants the pleasure of her company. Santo questions why she chose to be a nun. Colleen tells him that a lot of the women become nuns and that it is an honor to do so. Santo protests that she is too beautiful. She tells him that it is only outer beauty that he speaks of. Santo says that it is beauty given to her by the Lord. She tells him that she wanted to be a nun since she was a little girl. Santo tells her that it is "a pity" not to experience life. That makes Colleen mad.
Hope continued to explain to Bo her analogy. That if you hop on the back of the motorcycle you hold on to that temptation that only comes around once in a lifetime and you never want to let it go. Poor Colleen, she says, never stood a chance.
Flashback: Colleen continued to protest and defend "her calling." Santo promises that as a gentleman, he will respect her calling, on one condition. He wants to see her in a beautiful simple dress. Colleen gets mad and calls Shawn to leave. He tells her to meet him tomorrow and she says that it is a sin. He asks her what she is thinking and she is thinking. She says that she is thinking that she cannot let him shame her or her family. And then she left.
Bo tells Hope he thinks Santo crossed the line and Hope pointed out that Bo has crossed the line himself a few.
Flashback: Colleen showed up to meet Santo in her dress without her habit. She tells him that God sent him to her to prove she can stand up to temptation. She tells her she wants to be free from him. He tells her that no matter how far he goes, he could never be free of her. Colleen asks him what it is like out there in the world. He tells her he has been to New York. He tells her what it is like and tempts her with love, passion and freedom. He pleads with her to let him show her what it is like. She says that will never happen. He doesn't believe her. He confesses that he wants more from her and draws her in for a gentle kiss. Colleen pulls away and protests that she has made her choice about her life and Santo insists that he has made his too. He pulls her in for another kiss. Just then, little Shawn walks up and sees them kissing.
