At Carrie's apartment., Lucas & Carrie talk about Will and how Austin wants to build a life for him. She knows she can't compete with his son.

Sami comes out of the apt. wearing an ugly hat, and wearing an orange blouse, with long black coat. Hat is black with two pink silk roses centered on the brim. She goes to the hospital and walks to the blood lab. A nurse saw her and called her name, but Sami didn't hear her. At the desk she tells Dr. Mike and he thinks she must have been mistaken as Sami can't walk yet. Mike calls Carrie to see how she's doing . Mike asks Carrie if she knows where Sami is right now.

After hanging up, she goes to Austin's (with Lucas following) and asks for Sami. He tells her she's in bed asleep. They see the wheelchair and realize it must not have been Sami. Austin goes in the room and finds Sami gone. He rushes out to the hall and tells Carrie and Lucas she's not there.

At the hospital, Sami needs the keys for the room where the computer is and goes to Mr. Quinn's locker. The nurse opens the door looking for Mr. Quinn also, and Sami hides. She overhears Mike asking the nurse where the girl that looks like Sami is. After they leave, Sami opens the locker and gets the keys. Sami is sitting on the computer ready to change the blood types when we see Carrie/Austin/Lucas/Mike as they're looking for Sami now. Sami is going to change Will's blood type so no one will ever know Lucas is his real father.

In Rome, Bo and Billie rejoice being alive and the case being over. The Rome Police will pick up the rest of King's men. Billie, looking wonderful and dry remains cloaked in the blanket. Bo calls Abe and tells him what happened. Bo calls for plane tickets and Billie tells him she's not going back to Salem. She wants to stay in Europe as it would make a transition into her new life easier.

Flash to Salem where Hope tells Franco she knows she should move on, but for some reason just can't. Franco tells Hope he needs her like she needs him and kisses her. Nope, nadda Franco..she opens her eyes mid-kiss, not impressed. Franco trys to get Hope to his room, but Abe pops in and says he has incredible news about Bo. Abe tells Hope and Franco what Bo and Billie were really doing. Much to Franco's dismay, Abe tells Hope that Bo never stopped loving her. A very happy Hope hugs Abe and he leaves. She rushes off to call Bo. The next scene we see Hope (with very straight hair again) on a plane for Rome and Franco is with her.

Over at Marlena's penthouse, she and John finally stop kissing. John tells her he couldn't even look at her lately as he was afraid he would give away his real feelings for her. She tells him she overheard him when he said his real feelings for and was filled with joy. She tells him she really loves him and he tells her the same. He always has, always will. Although they have a lot to talk about, all they want to do is hold each other. Roman's name comes up and she turns around when thinking of him and what happened to him. John said they need to discuss Roman, but he promises her that he's never going to let her go again. Marlena and John tell each other about the letter Roman sent them, forgiving each of them. Then he asks Marlena for the truth about Kristin and wants to know everything, now.

Marlena said Kristin was a decent person when they first met her. She thinks the letter he wrote her in Aremid started what happened. John's confused that she knew about the letter and didn't tell him, but she explained it was due to Kristen's pregnancy and she was afraid of putting any more stress on her that would endanger the child. She agreed to keep quiet until the baby was born. John can't understand how Kristen kept quiet about losing his baby and Marlena said Kristen was desperate, afraid of losing him and so clever. John realizes she must have become so desperate and Marlena tells him in a whisper that she became evil.

She said she was going to tell him after the baby was born, but she couldn't ask him to choose between her and his beliefs in the Church. She went to St. Luke's for guidance after the baby was born and saw John there and heard him. She admits how hard it was seeing Kristen with him. John tells her she'll never be alone again. John admits the more he digests about what happened he feels like a fool. He has to face dealing with losing a child and the loss of a child he didn't know wasn't his. Marlena tells him not to feel that way. In spirit, Kristen is just like Stefano and she had Stefano's help and encouragement too. John tells Marlena they now have each other and love each other and they hug. John tells Marlena it's up to her, but there's nothing more in the world he would rather do than take her upstairs with a seductive look in his eyes. Marlena said how long she's waited for this moment. John said he understands if it's too soon and she said no, she wants that with all her heart too. He picks her up in his arms and carries her upstairs.
