Kristen says no, she can't go through with this! Stefano is shocked that she won't help him and Kristen says she'll help him only if he tells her his plan.

At the cabin Carrie is telling Mike, who she thinks is Austin, she wants to be with him forever. She says she's so thirsty and when Mike gives her a bottle of water she thanks him and calls him Austin. Carrie eventually comes around and Mike tells her what happened. Carrie says she's okay, a little tired but okay. She asks what happened to her clothes and he tells her he had to take her out of her clothes because he was afraid she was going to get pneumonia. Mike apologizes for undressing her, but it was the only thing he could do to help her. Carrie says that she had some wonderful dreams about being with Austin, but that somehow she felt Mike was there. Carrie says the one thing she does remember is kissing Austin, and how it was the most beautiful kiss. Carrie says kissing Austin was so real, so passionate, it was like nothing she's ever experienced before. Mike remembers kissing Carrie, and she says she doesn't understand why it was so different. Carrie says if only reality could be like her dream and doesn't understand what happened to them. Mike gets up and walks over to the window and confesses to Carrie that he was the one that kissed her, and that he has fallen in love with her.

At the DiMera Mansion Marlena and Kate can't believe their eyes when they see Sami in Austin's arms. Kate tells Marlena she fears Austin is growing closer to Sami and Marlena says no! Out on the patio Lucas spies on Sami when she agrees to marry Austin. Austin tells her he's only marrying her for Will's sake and Sami says maybe one day he can grow to love her. Austin wants to go to tell Roman to make him feel better, but Sami says since he thinks they are already married they should tell him they are renewing their vows. Sami and Austin go inside, where Kate, Marlena, and now Lucas are. Sami announces her engagement and Sami says she's so happy and wants to get married tomorrow! Sami says she really wants to hurry because of her dad's condition. Marlena asks to talk to Austin and Sami grabs her mom and hugs her and says she's so happy about this. Austin goes outside with Marlena and she asks what the hell is going on here. Austin tells Marlena about the annulment, but he never told Carrie because he thinks she's in love with Mike. Marlena says Carrie doesn't love Mike and tells him that the hotel was full, they had to share a room. Austin says he talked with someone at the hotel, and that he said that Carrie had dumped her boyfriend for Mike. Austin says Mike can give her what he can't, and his place is with his son and to be as good of a father as he can. Marlena wonders if Sami is orchestrating this, but Austin is sure she's not the same person she was. Austin says this was his decision, not Sami's. Marlena says Carrie has never spoken of any feeling for Mike, but Austin knows Mike loves her and he thinks Carrie loves him as well. Austin says Mike will love Carrie totally and won't hurt her the way he has. Austin says he won't have his son grow up resenting his father for leaving him and he won't be like his father. Marlena says he's nothing like Curtis and Austin says that he is marrying Sami to provide Will a good home. Marlena says he doesn't love Sami and Austin says he's explained that to Sami. Marlena tells him he's making a big mistake, but Austin says what he is doing is right. Austin says if it wasn't for Carrie wouldn't she want him to marry Sami and take responsibility. Marlena says there must be another way but Austin says this is the best way.

Inside Sami tells Kate she has won and everything is so perfect. Kate leaves and Lucas tells Sami she will need her help getting Carrie away from Mike. Sami says that shouldn't be too hard, Carrie isn't as close to Mike as Austin thinks.

Marlena goes in to see Sami and talks so her about what's happening. Sami says this means a lot to her and that she doesn't know how things will work out, but she's willing to try. Out on the patio Austin sulks and says he is doing this for Carrie. As he talks Kate overhears her son and asks God to forgive her.

In Roman's room Roman is talking to Eric, and Eric tells his dad he admires and respects his father. Eric tells Roman he wants to be there for his dad and he feels so bad he's been gone so long and missed out so much. Eric wishes he could be stronger for his dad but Roman tells him he's proud of him. Roman says he wants to grow old, see his children married, play with his grandchildren, but that's not going to happen. Roman says he's accepted this and then falls asleep. Eric says he won't accept it, he does not want him to die, he needs him now more than ever.

Sami and Austin go upstairs and tells Roman she and Austin are renewing their vows at Saint Luke's. She asks Roman to walk her down the isle and Roman says he'd love nothing more. Roman tells Austin this means a lot to him and thanks him. Roman then starts coughing and Sami tells Roman they will get married tomorrow. Roman is happy he's going to get to walk his little girl down the isle, and he thanks Austin for making Sami feel happy and loved. Roman says he wants the very best for Sami, and Austin says it's the best for everyone. In her head Kate says this isn't the best for Austin, and says she's so sorry. Lexie comes to see Stefano, but the guard tells her to wait while he checks with his supervisor. Kristen shows up and she tells Lexie they are sisters, she's just like her. Lexie tells Kristen she's nothing like her, what she has done is horrifying. Kristen says she had no choice and she tells Lexie she is a fortunate person, she has a loving husband and has never had a threat to her relationship so she shouldn't judge her. Lexie says she'd never stoop to evil, but Kristen asks her if she's ever been tested. Kristen says she's always thought she was always a good person, but when she began to lose John she did everything she could to hold onto him. Kristen says at first the lies were small ones, but they got bigger and bigger and she couldn't turn back. Kristen says that's when Stefano came along and made her an offer, and she had no choice but to accept it. Lexie asks her what type of love is that, and Kristen says that it wasn't her choice to become the town outcast. Lexie says she will never have anything to do with Stefano, but Kristen asks her what she is doing here then? Lexie says she needs to talk to him about some questions that have been haunting her. Kristen says she's opening her door to him and she says that Stefano will manipulator her. Kristen says if she wants nothing to do with Stefano she will leave. Lexie says Stefano is going to be in jail forever but Kristen assures her that Stefano will get out of prison. Kristen warns Lexie one last time to stay away from Stefano or she'll end up just like her.

At Stefano's cell Stefano tells John there is a cure for Roman's illness. John doesn't believe Stefano when he says he has the cure and accuses him of lying. Stefano tells John that by turning his back on him he's really turning his back on Roman. John says if he did have a cure how would he get it and Stefano says he is the only one who knows how to get it, for a price. Stefano tells John he'll give him the cure, for his freedom. Stefano tells John he knew every move he and Abe were making and said he would never let John and Abe catch him and put him in this cell unless he was absolutely sure they'd release him. John tells Stefano he's onto his game, he can't help Roman and he is done talking with him. Stefano then says if he's so sure he won't mind taking the chance away from the Bradys, Roman, MARLENA. Stefano says that he could care less if Roman dies and will sleep great when he dies. However, he asks John how he will sleep knowing he could have saved Roman? He says the Bradys will hate him, and so will Marlena.

John leaves and Kristen comes to see him. Kristen asks what happened and Stefano says as he anticipated John didn't believe him. However, Stefano says he knows soon John will come back to him and take his deal to protect Marlena. Stefano says when he does, checkmate, and he looks at the queen piece of his chess set. Stefano says John loves Marlena so much he would sell his soul to him, and he promises Kristen he'll be out of jail sooner than she thinks. When John returns to the DiMera mansion he hears Marlena tell Eric if there was some way to save Roman she'd give her life for it.

John tells Marlena that Stefano claims he can give them a cure for Roman's illness on the condition that he is released. Although John is skeptical, Marlena insists that they must be willing to take any risk if there is even a small chance that Roman could be saved, or she would never forgive herself. Remembering Stefano's words in the prison cell, John is forced to consider the request. Finally, he tells Marlena that the only way they can ensure that Stefano comes through with the cure is for John to go with Stefano. Marlena is horrified at the thought.

Roman is thrilled that Sami and Austin are "renewing" their vows for his sake. He has a heart-to-heart with Eric, telling him how proud he is of his son. Eric starts thinking about whether Sami is up to something or not, and decides to track her down.

Sami is thrilled when Austin tells her the wedding plans can go forth immediately. She spends some time gloating with Lucas, but accidentally leaves Will's baby book, containing the crucial blood type information, on Kate's sofa. Sami goes shopping for a gown and encounters Susan at the department store. A clerk tells Susan that her child looks nothing like her, and Susan says it's because he looks like his father. Sami is reminded of Lucas holding Will and Kate saying that Will has Lucas' eyes. Dread fills her as she realizes she left the book out where it could be found. As she turns to run out of the store and go home, she bumps into Eric. When he asks her what's wrong, she doesn't even take the time to make up an excuse - she just runs out. Eric knows something is up.

Kate keeps trying to talk Austin out of marrying Sami, but finally he tells her he just needs her support, since his mind is made up. Kate gives up, although her heart is filled with regret because she can't speak out against Sami. Suddenly, Austin gets an overwhelming feeling that Carrie is in danger. He tries to call, but her cell phone is dead, and the hotel says she is still out with Mike. Austin decides he has to forget about Carrie.

At the cabin, Carrie wakes up, not knowing that Mike has just spilled his guts to her. She tells him she had a wonderful dream that someone was telling her he loved her, and assumes it had to be Austin. Mike keeps his feelings to himself, and doesn't confess about the kiss. Mike goes to the road to get Carrie's cell phone while Carrie dresses in her dry clothes, unaware that a deadly rattlesnake is in the cabin with her. Mike finds the phone is dead, but hails a passing motorcyclist, who promises to send a tow truck. Mike returns to the cabin and they prepare to leave, but they disturb the snake who begins rattling and hissing. Carrie screams and Mike jumps in front of her. While attempting to cover the snake again, Mike is bitten on the arm.

Kristen runs into Susan and they have a semi-normal conversation. Kristen tells Susan she's trying to become a better person, and offers to spend the day shopping with her and Elvis. Susan agrees, and in the pricey department store, they run into Vivian Alamain, who is trying to convince the clerk that she is still the rich Mrs. Kiriakis. Susan unwittingly blows Vivian's cover while Kristen looks on in vengeful amusement. The clerk humiliates Vivian and demands all the free samples back. Vivian and Kristen exchange hostile words, and Kristen tells Vivian she'll never work with her again. Vivian goes home to her cruddy apartment with Ivan, where he has an assortment of disgusting foods for her to eat. Vivian collapses dramatically onto her bed...which promptly folds her up into the wall!

Marlena tries to talk John out of accompanying Stefano to get the cure for Roman, but he tells her if he doesn't, Stefano will just disappear. Finally, Marlena agrees to let him try, although she is very fearful. Roman calls her into the room and they chat about Sami's wedding, while Marlena conceals the truth about Sami and Austin and Carrie. Roman asks Marlena to lie down with him. She falls asleep and dreams about John...first an erotic dream, and then a nightmare that he is in danger. Roman wakes her up and tells her she was calling John's name, and that she sounded frightened. Marlena tells him she just had a nightmare, and Roman comforts her.

John goes downstairs and runs into Kristen, who grills him about whether he's going to release Stefano. He tells her he will try, even though he doesn't trust her or Stefano - he'll try for Marlena's sake. Abe stops by and John asks him if he can get Stefano released. Abe reacts with uncharacteristic anger and says that it's another trick and Stefano will never get out of jail. Kristen asks him whether his anger has anything to do with Lexie, and Abe tells her that Lexie wants nothing to do with her father. John tells Abe not to let his anger get in the way of a chance to help Roman. Abe says it's out of his hands anyway and the DA would never agree to the deal. He makes the call, and the DA tells him to forget it. Abe leaves, and John tells Kristen that although Abe's hands are tied by rules and regulations, John's are not...

Carrie is horrified to see Mike bitten by the snake, but Mike manages to maintain his composure long enough to shoo the snake out the door. Then he collapses in agony as Carrie applies all her knowledge as a candy striper to minimize the effects of the venom. While Mike is delirious, he tells Carrie he loves her. Carrie only hears the words "love you." The tow truck driver arrives and takes Mike to the doctor's cabin. The doctor injects Mike with an antivenin and tells him that Carrie's quick thinking probably saved his life. Then he tells them that he's had a chance to study Roman's file and the only thing he can offer is a drug cocktail which could enhance and prolong his life, but would not cure the infection. Carrie is ecstatic and the doctor writes the prescription for her. She tells Mike that now she can focus on the other parts of her life, such as her relationship with Austin. Mike is disappointed, but hides it. Carrie tells him he was talking about love in his sleep, and that when they get back to Salem, she will help him find the woman of his dreams. Carrie decides to try to call Austin one more time. Getting no answer at the apartment, she calls Kate's to see if he's there.

Back in Salem, Eric follows a frantic Sami back to Kate's. He asks her what she's hiding and she claims it's just wedding nerves, but he obviously doesn't believe her. Sami bursts into the living room to find Lucas and Will reading the baby book. Sami says, "Oh no" before she can stop herself. She snatches the book from Lucas and tells him to quit reading her private material. Lucas asks her what the heck her problem is, and tells her he found something disturbing in the baby book. Sami dreads that he noticed the blood type discrepancy, but actually he just noticed that she misrecorded Will's time of birth. Sami relaxes and says she'll fix it and hurries upstairs. Eric tries to confront her again, but she dodges him. Eric takes a look at the baby book himself when Sami is gone, but sees nothing out of line. He vows to find out what Sami is hiding. Sami goes downstairs to drink champagne with Lucas, celebrating her victory with Austin. Lucas tells her not to get too comfortable, because Carrie could call any time and if she found out about the annulment, she'd probably stop the wedding. Just then, the phone rings and Sami picks it up. It's Carrie, and Sami panics, but Carrie tells her she's stuck in the mountains with Mike for another night or so and to tell Austin she won't be back to work right away. Sami takes the opportunity to tell Carrie that she and Austin are renewing their vows. Carrie is devastated.
