Nancy's reaction after the amnio was not serious, but Chloe felt responsible for her mother's health during the pregnancy. As he reassured her, Brady realized he'd been grieving all his life for a lost chance to love his mother - now he couldn't live with regret. And at that moment he declared his own love for Chloe.

Rolf and Tony were confused about possession of the blue key. Tony knew John had the one given to him by Stefano, while Rolf found one in Belle's room. Rolf claimed the key had power to unleash the Twins' "very special talents." The Twins were gathered from anonymous sources in a fertility clinic in Europe arranged by Stefano, but DNA testing would be impossible. They absolutely were not DiMeras, but as Stefano's pawns, they now belonged to Tony. Rolf said that unlike John, the Twins would be unfailingly loyal - "incorruptible." Although he had no clue as to Tony's fugue states, the one answer Rolf did have was that Marlena's connection lies in her love for John which had turned his loyalty against the DiMeras. Taking Marlena away would be John's destruction.

While researching islands on a database, Marlena suffered momentary "fugues" as John showed her pictures. They found similarity in a group of islands to the Gemini pattern on the pillow Stefano had left Marlena, and considered a possible connection to Tony's fugue states and Marlena's time spent on Stefano's Island.

Finding Lexie, Bo grabbed his son from her and furiously asked about Hope. Saying she'd been framed, Lexie misread Abe's taking her hands as a supportive gesture. But instead, he handcuffed and arrested her. At the Police Station, he accused her of having blood on her hands while Lexie demanded a lie detector test. Brandon - following them there, defended her. On seeing Zack, Billie asked for Hope. While it was Billie who was caught on the phone by Roman as she reported Lexie's arrest to Larry, it was also Billie who booked Lexie.

Recalling Marlena's fugue state at the mansion, Tony & Rolf were piecing together a possible plan of Stefano's to reinstate Marlena as "Queen of the Night." Tony spoke of his love for Kristen - stolen from him by John. Saying she died of a broken heart, Tony declared he'd been given a second chance to do the same to John and - "I will get my revenge."

Cameron brings Tony in to see her client and he admits that he blames Stefano for her troubles but whispers that he has a plan. Cameron argues with Bo and reveals that she's obtained a restraining order to keep him away from Lexie. Billie arrives with Hope's bloody sweater and Bo identifies it as his wife's.

Brady tried to give Chloe hope by showing her how bright the future can be, but she fell asleep on his shoulder. Isabella appeared to him and told him now that he has told Chloe he loves her, now give her what she needs: to know her father. Brady decided he could find her father again, and goes to the computer to renew his search. Brady found a picture on the internet of Chloe's father, Dr. Sykes. Chloe woke up and Brady showed her the picture. Chloe was grateful to finally know what he looks like. Later on the docks, Brady thought he saw Sykes and tried to chase him down. After he couldn't catch him, Brady admitted he must've been mistaken.

Marlena and John discussed John going to the island to look for clues about Hope. John told Marlena that since he has the capability, he feels that it is his responsibility to end the reign of the DiMeras. Marlena received a call from Roman asking her to come down and talk to Lexie, hoping that she can give them information on Hope. After Marlena left, John talked to someone on the phone saying that although killing is never his first option, you do what you have to do to protect your family. He then charged the person with the safety of John's family. "You take care of them; I'll take care of DiMera," John told him as he packed a gun and other spy tools in a briefcase. As he finished his phone conversation, John noticed the silent alarm alerting him that someone was coming up the secret back elevator. John, with his gun drawn, waited for the elevator doors to open. He lowered the weapon when he saw that it was Shane Donovan. Shane had news for John from the ISA.

Lexie told Tony to do whatever it takes to get her out of jail. She told him that if she goes to trial, she could never win because of all the support Bo has. Tony told her that the "plan" was already underway. Marlena appeared outside Lexie's cell, but apparently hadn't heard the remark about the break-out plan. Tony refused to let Lexie talk to Marlena. Lexie wanted to talk to Marlena, because she doesn't have anything to hide.

Hope secretly prayed that Bo would understand the hidden clues she put in the note that Larry forced her to write. Outside the room where she is being held, Larry talked (to himself) about Hope learning to be a "lifetime prisoner." Hope decided she needs to figure out where she is being held and tried to open the sliding "peep hole" in the door. Larry talked about moving Hope to a deserted island.

Bo read Hope's note just as Jennifer arrived at the police station to find out news about Hope. Bo confirmed that the note was in Hope's handwriting. Jennifer doesn't believe Hope is dead. Abe let Jennifer read the note from Hope. Jennifer realized that Hope was not asking Bo to rescue her, but telling him goodbye. Bo told Jennifer that there is some kind of message in the letter, or that it is a set-up to make them think Hope is dead. When Abe comes back from the lab, he told Roman that the lab had confirmed the handwriting and the fingerprints on the letter are Hope's. Abe then revealed that the paper the note was written on was a page from Lexie's daybook.

Billie sent her partner for coffee and donuts so she could talk to Larry. Billie told Larry that "this has to end right now." Hope continued trying to open the slide in the door. When she finally opened it, she saw Billie talking to Larry.

Chloe and Brady arrived at the hospital to check on the results of the amnio. They showed Craig the picture of Dr. Sykes. Craig wanted to make a copy of the photo, but told Chloe and Brady not to tell Nancy about the picture. When Craig returned, he had the results from the amnio.
