Hope tells Lilly that she could sense a deep connection between herself and Stefano. Hope says for the first time she's actually terrified about what she might learn.

Hope doesn't understand why this is happening to her now, just when everything was going right. Lilly asks Hope if she's told Bo and she says no because she doesn't want to upset Bo. Lilly asks Hope what she is going to do now and Hope says she can't commit to Bo until she knows the truth.

Rolf is working on the satellite, which is almost in position. This pleases Stefano, but Rolf tells him it will only be a little while longer. Stefano says Hope is most likely remembering her times as Gina and he can't let her remember he was involved with him or that she was a master thief. Rolf says the transformation should occur soon, unless Salem is hit by a major storm or dense cloud coverage, which would block the satellite's signals from activating the chip in Hope's brain.

Stefano tells Rolf that he better make sure this transformation happens. Rolf tells Stefano that he's unable to control the weather. Stefano tells Rolf to strengthen the signal, but Rolf says that may make Hope remember the truth. Stefano says he can't have Hope remembering she was an art thief. Stefano says he has to come up with something to distract Bo and Hope from digging into Hope's past, and he thinks he knows just what to do. Stefano makes a call and tells Rolf that everything has been taken care of. Shawn D. goes to the movies and is suddenly grabbed by a mysterious hand!

Ali talks with Nancy at the hospital and tells Nancy she has a gift for Mike. Nancy says she thought she and Mike broke up and Ali tells Nancy that is the farthest thing from the truth. Mike is trying to work in his office, but all he can think about is the psycho. Ali shows up to see Mike and wishes him a merry Christmas. Ali gives Mike a present and he tells her she shouldn't have. He opens it and its a watch. Mike tells her its too extravagant, but Ali says she can't return it because it's been engraved. On the back of the watch it says "With love, forever, Ali"

Ali tells him this way she can be with him all the time, forever. Ali tells Mike that he says he doesn't want a commitment, but their kiss on Christmas Eve told a whole other story. Mike tells ALi that it is time he tells her the whole truth. Ali tells him that there is no need. Ali tells Mike that since Judy has been away, she's been carrying out some of her duties. She tells Mike that Dr. Renault should be arriving today and she has already set up a room for him.

Austin and Carrie return home and Austin can't stop talking about Sami remembering what really happened. Austin tells Carrie that she could be happy for Sami, but Carrie just can't get by the fact that Sami was found with the gun in her hand and confessed to killing Franco. Austin and Carrie then begin to argue. Austin says Carrie of sounds like she doesn't want Sami to be found innocent. Carrie says she wants Sami to be found innocent because than she can raise Will herself. Austin looks at Carrie and tells her that she can't believe she said that.

Austin tells Carrie she is selfish and doesn't give a damn about Sami's well being. Carrie tells Austin he is twisting her words around and making her look like the bad guy. Carrie asks Austin if he so sure Sami didn't kill Franco, than who did? Austin tells Carrie that she's so obsessed with getting revenge on Sami and then tells her that perhaps the old Sami has been reborn in her! Carrie tells Austin that is cold and that the old Sami is right where she has always been. Carrie tells Austin that Sami is tearing them apart, but Austin says she's doing that on her on.

Carrie goes to work and Mike shows up to see her. Mike realizes this is a bad time, but Carrie tells him it isn't. Mike asks her if she's finished the press release on Dr. Renault and she says she forgot, but will get right on it. Mike asks Carrie if she's talked to Austin about Sami's breakthrough and Carrie says "Oh yeah!" Mike says that he finds it hard to believe Sami. Carrie tells Mike he seems to be the only one who agrees with her on that point. Carrie starts crying and asks Mike to hold her. He tells her of course, and holds her. Ali runs back into Nancy, who tells her that she might be deluding herself about Mike and calls her desperate. Ali says that she is not deluding herself, Mike loved her present and told her that he loved her when they were in bed together on Christmas Eve.

At the penthouse, Marlena asks Sami if she knows who shot Franco. Sami says she doesn't know. Mickey is there as well and tells Sami that he needs more information to convince the judge of her innocence. Suddenly, Sami exclaims "I know who shot Franco!" Sami says what if Franco caught a drunk Lucas kidnapping Will and he used the gun he gave Sami to keep Lucas from leaving with Will, but perhaps they struggled, Lucas got the gun, and then killed Franco. Sami says that if Lucas kidnapped Will, Franco knew she would call off the wedding to find him.

Marlena thinks Sami's theory makes sense, but Sami still can't explain how the gun ended up in her hand. Roman says perhaps Lucas tossed the gun and maybe Sami picked the gun up before fainting, or Lucas could have framed her. Maggie doesn't think Lucas would do such a thing, but Roman says it would explain Lucas' phone call to Kate and that they must be covering the truth up. Roman says all they need to do now if prove this theory. Austin shows up, without Carrie, and Mickey and Maggie leave. Sami tells Austin that she thinks she found a way to prove her innocent. Roman tells Sami that he will prove she didn't kill Franco.

Roman says Lucas probably figured nobody would believe Sami anyway, and Abe asks how they can believe her now?

Roman says if Sami was going to lie about this, why did she wait this long? Roman says that he think Kate helped Lucas cover up what happened and they have to reopen the case. Still, Abe says there is no evidence to place Lucas in the room, or even in the house. Roman begs Abe to reopen this case.

Austin is back with Sami and they are talking. Austin is afraid Abe won't reopen the case because this sounds too good to be true. Sami asks Austin if he no longer believes her?

Carrie continues and says that Marlena thinks Carrie is using her fights with Austin to stay close to Mike. As she says the words, she realizes that this is what she is doing. Mike agrees, and Carrie, hurt, starts to walk off. He grabs her and tells her that he has made it too easy for her to talk to him.

On the new Fancy Face 2, Hope is frantic to learn who is on the phone. The kidnapper does not reveal himself, just warns her that they better deliver the $2 million. Hope says that her son is with friends, but the kidnapper says not any more. Shaken, Hope gives the phone to Bo, saying ShawnD has been kidnapped. Bo tells them he wants to speak with his son. Putting the phone to S.D.'s mouth, he says "Help." Bo makes sure it's not a recording by asking him what the name of the boat is. S.D. answers correctly and Bo knows it is true. Outside where they are keeping S.D., the kidnapper is on the phone with Stefano, who is using a voice disguiser. He tells the kidnapper to lay low for a while; he wants to see them sweat for a bit.

The kidnappers tell Bo and Hope not to involve the police, they will contact them. They hang up and Hope is frantic. They hold each other. They try to rationalize, and Hope wonders if it was someone that Bo busted. He does not think so and begins to dial Abe's number. Hope is shocked and grabs the phone away, saying the kidnappers said no police. Bo assures her that this is the best thing and talks to the commander. He gets off the phone and says that Stefano is the one behind the kidnapping because she is getting to close to the truth. Hope agrees that it is possible and Bo takes off. Hope remembers a Gina memory, telling Stefano that she feels so loved when she is with him. Back in reality, Hope wonders why Stefano just can't leave them alone.

He starts to cough and a kidnapper gets him a soda. With the gag off, he asks why they are doing this. The other kidnapper, a woman, tells him the less he knows the better.

Rolf comes in to the living room at the mansion and Stefano tells him that it is time for Bo and Hope to get a surprise. Stefano turns to Rolf and tells him that now that Bo and Hope are occupied, he will concentrate on Vivian and making her well. Rolf says that taking the device out of her tooth now is risky, but since he is not using the device on her anymore, let it be. Meanwhile, Vivian comes down the stairs dressed to the hilt. She is getting ready to go out. She looks in the mirror to primp her hair, when her tooth begins to hurt. She decides to make an appointment to have the dentist look at it. She's making the call, when suddenly the radio cuts in and she hangs up the phone, shouting, "No." Stefano hears this and rushes out. Vivian tells him that she is hearing voices again, but not to worry. They start their romantic dinner with a dance, and Stefano tells his bride that he wants to make her better.
