Behind locked doors at the DiMera Mansion, Rex was looking over a box of items for his experiment when Shawn came unexpectedly. Shawn left for Dot.Com once he learned about Belle's appearance on the dating show.

Strained feelings between Cassie and Belle increased when Shawn arrived during the taping of "Love is Blind" at Dot.Com. Intrigued by their reactions, the producers let him stay. While Shawn said he loved her, Belle offered to forfeit the show if he was the mystery date, thinking he was afraid of competition.
