A sleepy eyed Lucas opened his front door to find a chattering Kate ribbing him for not being ready to go visit Philip. Shifty eyed, Lucas didn't say much until a bathrobe clad Sami came out of the bathroom. Horrified, Kate lit into Sami who explained that her shower was broken. Sami continued to blame Kate for the Brandon incident, until Lucas told Sami she should probably leave. A willing Sami agreed but asked for a moment alone with him first. The two went down the hall to her apartment and Lucas briefly questioned her about Nicole again. They quickly changed the subject, and Sami re-asked Lucas whether he would give them a shot again if she found proof that Kate set her up. Lucas did not think Sami could find proof because Kate had an alibi. A smirking Sami explained her belief that Eugenia helped Kate because at the time, they were hanging out a lot together and because that is what she would have done. Lucas finally relented and agreed that if Sami managed to find proof, he would give their relationship another shot. Thrilled, Sami hugged him and sent him on his way. Convinced Eugenia would have kept evidence of the conspiracy, Sami set out to find the proof.

Back at Lucas' apartment, Kate received a phone call from a desperate Eugenia reminding Kate that she had not fulfilled her end of the bargain to find her employment. Kate noted the vague threats of blackmail, but Eugenia denied she had any leverage. "It isn't like I have tapes of our phone conversations," she said as she caressed a box of tapes. Just as Kate told her she appreciated her help, Lucas entered the apartment. Kate quickly covered and asked Lucas if Sami was trying to convince him she broke up their marriage again. Lucas admitted that was what Sami wanted and asked Kate again if she was to blame. Kate denied she had anything to do with it, and Lucas said he believed her because she couldn't be that stupid. "If you were, I'd never forgive you. And you'd never see me or your grandson ever again," he said.

At Eugenia's apartment, she carefully placed her phone tapes back into a hollowed out book on the table in her bedroom, muttering that she would use them if Kate did not come through on her promise. After Eugenia left, Sami entered the apartment through a window, looking for evidence. Unfortunately, Sami sat down and leaned on the book while she thought about where the evidence would be, never looking at the book underneath her hand.

At the loft, Mimi woke up next to Rex and they made love again. Rex told Mimi he always knew she was innocent, and wondered why Mimi never fought the charges or why she was arguing so intensely with Jan. Mimi did not want to talk about it, so Rex said they would finish the conversation later after he got her surprise.

In the living room, Shawn paced obsessing over whether Belle and Philip were making love. When Rex came into the room, a dour Shawn congratulated Rex for freeing the woman he loves. Rex disputed Shawn's happiness, but Shawn explained that he was upset about Belle. When Rex told him to accept it, move on, and respect Belle's choice, Shawn tried to draw a parallel between Rex not giving up on Mimi and him not giving up on Belle. Shawn announced that he was convinced that once Philip recovered, Belle would ask for a divorce. At this, Rex left without a word, and Mimi entered the living room to tell Shawn that their situations were different. Hurt that Mimi wasn't supporting him, Shawn sulked and refused to answer a phone call from Bo. When Bo called the house, Mimi covered for Shawn. While Shawn explained that he held tight to the belief that Belle would only act as Philip's nurse, Mimi went through the mail and pulled a letter from the courthouse for Shawn. Shawn ignored the letter, but before Mimi could make him look at it, Rex returned and made breakfast. Later, Shawn left the couple alone and Rex sat Mimi on the couch and demanded she tell him Jan's secret.

In Belle and Philip's loft, Philip struggled in the kitchen to set up a sponge bath for himself. Belle interrupted and insisted she wanted to help him through this difficult period. Philip expressed his frustration, wondering how long it would be until Belle became sick of taking care of an invalid but Belle disagreed, stating he was her husband and nothing less. Belle pep talked, telling him he would be able to do everything he did before soon enough, and Philip agreed but lamented that right now he couldn't. Exclaiming that they were a team, Belle insisted on giving Philip his sponge bath. Uncomfortable, Philip expressed a desire for a nurse, but seeing through his grumping, Belle told him if he did that was fine, but until then, she would take care of him because she was his wife. Aroused by the sponge bath, Philip stopped her to thank her and kiss her passionately. After a moment, Philip whispered he wanted her and pulled her onto his lap. Unfortunately, the doorbell rang, ending the attempt, and Belle let in a visiting Kate and Lucas. Lucas talked to Philip who stayed positive, and told his brother how proud he was of his wife for sticking by him.

In the kitchen, Kate thanked Belle for standing by her husband and for being such a good wife. Pushing the envelope of meddling, Kate suggested that Belle needed to also be there for Philip emotionally and physically, adding that he needed things to be like they were before his accident to aid his recovery. Driving home the much hinted at point, Kate told an uncomfortable Belle that she needed to let Philip make love to her just as Shawn entered the loft and overheard the statement.

At the Brady home, Bo and Hope were excited about the new boat but the joy was short lived when the conversation turned to Shawn. Neither had heard from him since he returned from Germany but Hope was sure Shawn would get a continuance. Bo was less convinced and worried the judge might see Shawn as a drugged out criminal and drop out. "If he keeps screwing up, it won't matter because he'll be in jail," Bo grumbled. As Hope tried to calm her husband, Roman called with an assignment. A devastated Bo turned to Hope and told her that the continuance was denied and a bench warrant had been issued for Shawn's arrest. Roman had ordered Bo to arrest his son.

Philip suggests Kate call her friend Judge Fitzpatrick and try to intervene on Shawn's behalf. Hope is tweaked that Kate has influence with the judge and accuses her of being behind the change in the hearing date and Shawn's arrest. Kate denies and Roman stands up for Kate. Lucas wonders if it could be true and if she also could be behind what happened to him and Sami? Bo arrests Shawn and takes him off to jail.
