As Sami admired her wedding dress, Lucas entered her apartment. Sami was not pleased he saw her dress and even less pleased to hear Lucas talk about how Tony was in custody and would spill his info on Stan soon enough. When Lucas went off to get his tuxedo, Sami sat on her couch to cry about her dilemma. Suddenly, Roman entered and saw her teary eyed. Worried, Roman asked her what was wrong, but Sami played it off as just nervous jitters that another of her weddings would go south. Roman was suspicious, but Sami cut him off and stated that she was worried Tony would retaliate for her refusing to help him by making up stories about her. Roman pushed her to tell the truth, but Sami changed the subject to Marlena's recovery. When Sami began to prattle on again about a Marlena and Roman reunion, Roman reminded her it was science fiction because she was with John. The two said their I love you's and Roman left Sami. Immediately upon the door closing, Sami teared up again, and she fell to the couch exclaiming that if Tony got in her way, she would just have to kill him. Later, Lucas returned and was angry that Tony had yet to talk. Anxious to change the subject, Sami told Lucas to concentrate on them and their future happiness. Sweeping her off her feet, Lucas carried her into the bedroom to work on that future happiness.

At Billie's house, a sulky Chelsea continued to rant at Billie for embarrassing her in front of Max, ruining her life at school. Driving in the knife, Chelsea told Billie that last night was the first time she was happy since her parents died but that Billie ruined that. Chelsea shoved Billie out into the hallway to find a waiting Patrick. When Patrick suggested that Chelsea might be Georgia, Billie scoffed at the coincidence. Patrick pointed out that they had the same rare blood marker, and determined to end the mystery, Billie set off for answers.

Out in the backyard later, a bikini clad Chelsea watched Patrick skim the pool. After Chelsea continued to rag on Billie, Patrick asked her to stop because it wasn't fair considering how kind and loving a person she is. Surprised, Chelsea asked if Patrick was hot for Billie and told him Billie was too old for him. Determined to make a move, Chelsea squirted sun tan lotion in Patrick's hands and told him that he should be with someone like him, a risk taker and not a rule follower like Billie. With Patrick reluctant to rub the lotion on her, Chelsea took his hand and rubbed it along her arm, then grabbed him and kissed him. He did not fight back.

Down at the ISA holding cell, a dressed up Billie went in to visit Tony. She sat across from him and pleaded for the truth. When he asked why he should tell, she simply stated that she remembered the old Tony. "I've waited 18 years. Don't be a bastard," she said as she held his hand. Tony was unsure, but finally told her that it was Chelsea.

At the Brady pub, Kate entered and sat with John as a glowering Caroline looked on. John tried to cheer Kate up by telling her that Lucas would come around. The two then talked about Marlena's isolation therapy. As John caressed her hand, Kate whispered, "Roman could take lessons from you on being an understanding husband." John lamented that due to the amnesia, the old Marlena would probably never return, even with her memory. Kate muttered that she probably lost Roman long ago and that he probably never got over his love for Marlena, but John told her not to sell herself short because she was a hell of a lady. Kate thanked him and said she wanted to concentrate on getting her family back together. Right on cue, Kate looked across the pub to find a Bloody Mary swilling Nicole unable to pay for her take out. Kate walked over and whipped out her credit card to pay. When Nicole asked why, Kate asked for information in return for $500. At first Nicole declined but desperate, took the money and pointed Kate toward Tony for answers.

Roman entered the pub and after sniping at Kate that he preferred to eat alone, got an earful from John. A bitter Roman told John that if Marlena was hurt by the isolation therapy, it was his responsibility. "Even specialists can have ulterior motives, yet you sent her off with him," Roman complained. John stood his ground and as the exchange got heated, a motherly Caroline broke up the argument. The two apologized to one another and Roman admitted he was on edge since he broke it off with Kate.

Up at the cabin, Marlena woke up to find Dr. Alex North staring at her. At first unnerved, she softened when she saw that he prepared breakfast in bed for her. Marlena said she was embarrassed about crying the night before, but that it was because she remembered being in love with Alex. Alex insisted it was transference because she was vulnerable, but to go with the memories. He also offered her a third possibility to Roman and John: that there was another man she loved. As Marlena fussed over familiar flowers, she blurted out, "I don't want to lose you!" Alex recommended she take a bath to clear her head. Once she went in the bathroom, he said, "This is going better than I thought."

In the bath, Marlena remembered taking a bath with Alex and kissing him passionately. After she got out of the tub, she went into the other room and kissed Alex.
