As they talk, Vin gives Chaz a white powder to slip into Shawn's drink. Chaz pours it into Shawn's drink and Vin eagerly watches in the background. Just as Shawn is about to take a sip from the contaminated soda, he spots Vin and goes to confront him. He notices Vin's fascination with his cup; Belle is about to take a sip from Shawn's cup when he realizes that something is wrong with the drink and knocks the cup out of her hand. Vin takes off and Shawn grabs Chaz by the collar, demanding to know what was in the drink. Chaz claims ignorance, so Shawn calls Bo to get the police out there to investigate...

Cassie uses Chaz to boost her self-esteem and takes him upstairs to her room. They gear up to have sex, but she backs down once she feels better about herself.

At Salem Airport, Kate watched Roman's name on her cell phone ID but wouldn't answer his messages. At Kate's request, John refused to tell Roman that she was on her way to Rome. A quick call from Kate to Lucas left her son curious about her hasty and unexplained departure. Recalling memories of Roman, she was tempted to call him before boarding.

Marlena was expressing concern to John about the example Tony was setting for the Twins when Belle called about the disturbance at the party. Leaving neighboring rooms at The Echelon, Tony and Lucas ran into each other but Tony left immediately when Marlena called to advise him about the party.

At the DiMera Mansion, Chaz denied any connection to Vin Ramsel's plan to spike Shawn's drink. When Bo & Hope arrived, Bo quickly put together Ramsel's scheme, threatening Chaz with additional charges if he ran. Upon his arrival, Tony was disturbed to learn that Belle had almost drunk what was later identified as cocaine and arsenic. He scolded Cassie about an unknown boyfriend and for serving liquor, until she tearfully admitted not wanting anything to happen to her sister. At that, Belle sent Marlena to help Cassie.

But at the Salem PD, where everyone gathered to give statements, Cassie and Belle were not on good terms. As Marlena reached out to Cassie - understanding her need to fit in - Belle watched with resentment. Belle told Hope everyone felt too guilty to give Cassie the tough love she really needs. As John and Tony traded accusations of blame, Tony's resentment grew when John also reached out to Cassie. Playing a cunning game, Cassie used tears to win Tony's sympathy, and then moved back to John's side.

Sami was home alone when an unknown sound frightened her. Finding Lucas in the hall, she asked him to discover the source. Although it was only wind chimes on the fire escape, Lucas infuriated Sami by pretending to be in trouble. The two exchanged words about the past - with Lucas reminding her that he had saved her from death row but had heard Sami wish him dead when he was in a coma. Asking if they really still wished one another were dead, in a serious moment, they each simply admitted that Will loved them. A silent glance exchanged was interrupted when Sami finally sent Lucas home without thanking him for his help.
