Monday November 16, 1998

Taylor shows up at the Kiriakis mansion and is amazed by the house and grounds. Billie asks Lucas what he's hiding, but he says he just doesn't feel good. She then tells Lucas that she knows what it's like to live with a lie that your future depends on. She tells Lucas that she's here if he needs her. Billie goes to leave, but Lucas stops her. As he is about to confess the truth to Billie, Kate walks into the room.

Kate starts harassing Sami and says that when Sami goes to prison she'll get what she deserves. Billie tells Kate that she feels sorry for Sami and doesn't believe Sami murdered Franco. Lucas recalls shooting Franco and blurts out "it was self defense!" Billie asks Lucas if he remembered something he didn't tell the police when the doorbell rings. Lucas tells Billie that all he meant was that if Sami shot Franco it must have been in self defense. Henderson announces that Taylor has shown up. Kate tells Lucas that she asked Taylor to take Lucas to his AA meeting. Lucas says that tonight's meeting is about how to stop lying to yourself. Kate introduces Taylor to Billie and Lucas mentions that she is Nicole's sister.

Kate tells Lucas to show Taylor around, so he does. Kate notices Billie is still wearing her wedding ring and she tells her to end her marriage. Billie says that is probably a good idea and removes her wedding ring.

Kate promises to help Billie move on with her life. Kate asks Billie about her problems with Roman. Billie hopes that she can get back to the relationship they once had. Kate asks Billie what type of relationship they had? Billie recalls kissing Roman and tells her mom that she isn't getting romantically involved with someone else, especially Bo's brother. Kate tells Billie she's glad of that because she feels it could be a mistake to get involved with someone on the rebound.

Lucas takes Taylor up to her room. They start talking about family and Lucas apologizes to her because he knows she doesn't like talking about her family. Taylor doesn't think his family could be as bad as hers, but Lucas tells her that his family has secrets too and tells her that his mom lied to him about his father. Taylor tells Lucas that she admires him for working to get his son back and says that everyone has done something they regret. Lucas asks Taylor what she's done that she regrets. Taylor tells Lucas that she regrets being talked into keeping a secret that could impact someone else's life. She says the person who deserved to pay walked away scot-free and the innocent person was the one who suffered. Lucas thinks about how Kate talked him into keeping their secret and Lucas tells Taylor that he understands completely.

Stefano goes home and talks to Rolf, who is working on the satellite. Stefano is upset that Greta didn't come back with him. He tells Rolf that he promised Princess Gina that he would watch over Greta, and he intends to do that. Stefano fears Hope may try to return to Count Olenska's, which is why he has to turn her back into Princess Gina ASAP. Rolf says they have to wait for the next lunar eclipse, which will be in a few weeks. Rolf tells him that as long as John and Hope have the chips in their brains, their pasts are gone for ever and they can't regain their memories unless he replants them.

Roman stops by the townhouse to talk with Vivian about Kate. Vivian apologizes for the way she behaved at the Penthouse Grill and fears she's suffering from dementia. Vivian tells Roman she could be losing her memory, so he should ask questions about Kate while she remembers who the bitch is. Roman asks Vivian about Kate's past and where she comes from. Vivian tells Roman that she's white trash, she just wears designer dresses. Roman questions her about Kate's relationship with Franco and if she knew Franco was an illegal alien. Vivian asks Roman why he's so interested in Kate's past and he says that they are linked via Will and that his son still works for her. Vivian tells Roman that soon, Eric will be working for her. Roman asks Vivian what secrets she knows about Kate and Vivian says she doesn't know the specifics, but Sami does. Roman asks what she means and Vivian says that she knows Sami has the information he needs.

Stefano shows up to see Vivian and Ivan tells him she has company, but Stefano could care less and barges in. He apologizes for interrupting and says he only wanted to check on Vivian. Vivian is thrilled that he brought her roses and she decides to put them in a vase. Roman thanks Vivian for her help and decides he needs to get going. Roman questions Stefano. Roman says it's odd that tragedy strikes everyone who hooks up with him. Stefano tells Roman that he is a model citizen and he should be worrying about keeping his daughter out of jail. Vivian returns and tells Roman that Stefano has done nothing but help her and it was Stefano who convinced her to give John power of attorney. Roman leaves and Stefano tells Vivian that he has a wonderful surprise planned for her.

Greta tells Hope that she understands why Bo doesn't trust her, but she swears to Hope she's not working for Stefano. Hope says it is hard to get past what they saw. John tells Marlena that he doesn't believe Greta is working for Stefano. Marlena is skeptical and thinks perhaps Greta and Marlena were long lost friends. Marlena says that whatever he finds about his past could hurt them. Bo tells his mom and dad about what happened between Greta and Stefano on the mountain. He hates to think she is working for Stefano, but can't ignore the possibility. He tells them that he really wants to believe Greta, but doesn't want to risk being hurt by Stefano. Greta explains to John, Marlena, Bo, and Hope what really happened on the mountain.

She tells them that she was grateful to Stefano for saving her, but she'd rather be dead than see the doubt in Bo's eyes, and then she runs off. Bo thinks he should go after her, but Marlena says that maybe it's for the best she leave. Hope tells Bo that he should go after Greta because he promised to protect her. Bo says his first priority is to protect Hope but can't ignore the what he saw. Marlena is positive that Greta is a danger to both Bo and Hope and it would be best if she leave Salem. Both, John and Hope disagree because she is too important. Bo tells them that he can't shake the feeling that they are walking into one of Stefano's traps.

Greta goes upstairs and remembers Bo convincing her to return to Salem. She tells herself that she can't stand seeing the mistrust in Bo's eyes and wishes she had stayed in the bayou where her secrets were safe. Greta recalls the operations on her face and looked at the picture that Hope thought was her.

Greta goes back downstairs and hears everyone talking about why Stefano saved her life. Greta screams that she doesn't know why he did it, but she's grateful he did. Hope asks Greta not to leave and Bo asks her to stay because she is a victim as well. John asks her to stay and help them and she decides to stay. Greta thanks them and says that she's been alone most of her life and she ran away to the bayou to avoid the operations on her face alone. Caroline takes Marlena aside and tells her that she doesn't look very happy. Marlena says she's not because she fears that Bo, Hope, and John are making a terrible mistake. John finds Marlena and tells her that he hopes she lets go of this idea that Greta is working for Stefano. Shawn breaks out the apple cider and they all propose to their futures, and to Greta.

Ali bumps into Mike and makes sure they are still on for their date tonight, which they are. Later, Craig tells Ali not to let Mike slip away from her. Ali tells Craig that she plans to get the head nurse job AND Mike. Nancy interrupts them and tells Craig that she has been called to jury duty and can't avoid it. Nancy is furious that this has come up now that her plans are taking off. They both say that all they need to do is get Carrie to realize how close Ali and Mike have gotten and then, KABOOM! Nancy and Craig asks Ali out to dinner, but Ali tells them that she is planning to go out with Mike tonight.

Austin and Sami are still talking. Sami feels that Carrie doesn't believe her about Lucas hitting Will and being a danger to him. Austin tells her that he believes her because she's not the same manipulative person she once was. Suddenly, Roman walks in and tells Sami that he was hoping she could give him some answers regarding the murder. Sami says she's told him everything she knows. Austin leaves them to talk and Roman tells Sami that he talked with Vivian and learned that she knows something about Kate's past. Roman says that if it's true, it explains why she gave her the job at Titan, let her live in her home, and threw her the wedding. Sami tries to say that Kate did it for Will, but Roman tells his daughter that he wants the truth. Roman asks her if she has something on Kate which she used blackmail her. Sami says that he can't believe Vivian because she isn't in her right mind. Still, Roman suspects that Kate has a lot of secrets that could help her case and he asks Sami to tell him if she knows something. Sami says she doesn't understand how Kate's past can help him.

Roman says that Kate could be a crucial witness, so she should tell him if Kate is hiding anything. Sami recalls Kate warning her that Austin would turn on her if the truth that she was blackmailing her came out, so she tells her dad all she knew was that Kate hired Franco. Roman says that Kate is hiding something because he suspects Kate heard the gunshot and may have seen who killed Franco. Roman tells his daughter that if she has something on Kate that gives her a good reason to see her put behind bars, she should tell him. Mickey walks into the room and tells Sami that he just learned that jury selection for her trial starts tomorrow. Mickey tells her how important this jury selection is, especially if they can get jurors with children who would sympathize with her. Roman decides to leave Mickey and Sami alone so they can discuss their case, but asks Sami to call him if she remembers anything that could be of help.

Mike talks with Carrie and apologizes for standing up to Austin, he just thought someone should stand up for her after he stood up for Sami. Carrie tells him that it's not the same thing because of their feelings for each other. Mike says he is aware of their feelings. Carrie says that they have to put their feelings aside. Carrie tells Mike that Austin spends all his time with Sami, and if Sami goes to prison, they will remain connected because of Will. Carrie just doesn't understand how Austin could take Sami's side after all she's done. Mike tells Carrie that she has to find a way to deal with it to keep peace in her marriage. Carrie responds by saying that she doesn't know if it is worth it. Mike says that she doesn't mean that, she's just upset. Carrie says she's just hurt that Austin keeps taking Sami's side. Mike tells her that it will be all right and she should just trust him. Carrie says she does, always. Austin walks in and asks Mike if Will can leave the hospital today. Mike says he'll have to talk with Craig. Carrie asks why he wants Will released so soon and Austin says that he thinks it will make Sami feel better. Mike leaves to find Craig and Carrie tries to leave as well, but Austin tells her that he wants to ask her something. Austin would like it if they stop fighting and Carrie agrees, but she doesn't like all the time she is spending with Sami. Austin says that he doesn't get down on her for spending time with Mike. Carrie tells Austin that is different and points out that they work together. Austin says that doesn't matter because he knows Mike has feelings for her Carrie is stunned, but Austin says that Sami just wants to be friends, just like she and Mike are friends. Austin says he needs to go say goodbye to Sami and Will and then he'd like to take her out for a romantic evening. Austin kisses her and then leaves.

Mike finds Craig and asks if Will can be released. Craig asks why and Mike says that Austin wants Will released for Sami's sake. Craig makes a smart comment about Austin spending too time being concerned with his sister-in-law. Later, the board members find Mike and tell him that Rose wants to retire right away, so he needs to make the head nurse decision soon. Ali approaches Mike and asks if he's ready to go out. Mike and Ali leave and Nancy comments to Carrie that she hopes Mike won't pick Ali. Carrie is sure he won't, but she says if he does, she'll wish Ali luck. As Mike and Ali step in the elevator, Carrie and Mike lock eyes as the elevator doors close.

Vivian tells Stefano that Roman seems very interested in Kate lately. Vivian quickly changes the subject to Titan and how he's going to help her throw Kate out. Stefano says nothing and Vivian asks if he's been misleading her. Stefano tells her that now is not the time because she isn't well and can't run Titan right now. Stefano tells her that he came over to take her out to dinner and give her a big surprise, but Vivian says she's tired and doesn't feel like it. Stefano uses the control, because he says he has no choice, and Vivian's spirit picks up and says she's ready to go out and hopes the evening includes dancing. Vivian returns and Stefano tells her that tonight, she'll get everything she wants. Vivian is thrilled and says he is giving her Titan!

Billie tells her mom she isn't getting involved with Roman. Billie asks her mom why she's so curious. Kate says she was hoping to get inside info on him from her to find out what he's up to. Billie says that he's only trying to protect his daughter and tells her mom she's do the same thing for her children. Billie tells her mom that once everyone learns what she's done, she'll be the town pariah. Kate tells Billie that the same thing happened to her when she had her affair with Bill Horton, but she ran away instead of staying. Billie says that the difference is that she returned as a powerful business woman. Billie asks her mom how she went from nothing to what she is today? Kate says that everything she did in those days she did for Lucas because she thought her and Austin were dead. Kate says that she saw Lucas as a second chance and she wanted to give him a good life. Kate tells Billie that she put her way through college with menial jobs. Billie asks how she got to the top of her field and Kate says she made the right connections with the right people.

Kate recalls having "relations" with powerful businessmen. Kate sits down and Billie asks her mom if she is okay. Kate says she is fine, she just doesn't like thinking about the past because it is today that matters. Billie tells her mom that is right because she is a huge success and owns Titan. Kate says that Titan is her children's legacy and she won't let anyone take it from her. Kate tells Billie that she won't let Vivian, Stefano, or Roman take her down. Billie says she doesn't like hearing her talk like Roman that way, but Kate says the man is trying to take her down. Billie says that as long as she is hiding nothing, she has nothing to worry about. Roman calls Billie and invites her to the Blue Note, but she says she is tired and asks to take a rain check. Roman tells her okay and he'll be there in case she changes her mind. Billie says she won't, but hopes he has fun. She tells him that his invite means a lot to him. When Billie turns around, Kate has vanished.

Kate goes to the Blue Note and gets a call from Stefano. He tells her that Roman is asking questions about her. Kate tells Roman that she is working to correct the Roman problem tonight. Stefano is glad and tells her that Vivian will no longer be a problem after tonight. Kate goes in and sees Roman. She sits at the bar and starts to tell the bartender what a horrible day she's had.

Ali is trying to convince Mike to spend the night with her. She senses something is wrong and Mike tells her they have to talk about their future.

Ali tells Mike that she dreams of a future for them which includes making University Hospital the best in the country, getting married, and having a child to carry on the Horton tradition. Ali apologizes and Mike tells her that he has dreams as well, thinking about Carrie. Mike says he just needs space to make this decision.

Kate spots Roman and starts telling the bartender all about her troubles. Kate tells the bartender that the police think she is lying about the Franco Kelly murder. Kate says she didn't hear anything, but if she did she could be forced to testify against Sami and she wouldn't want to be the one who sent her grandson's mother to jail. She says she doesn't love Sami, but she loves her grandson and doesn't want him to grow up without a mother, so she'd do anything to help Sami.

Kate tells the bartender that she thinks Sami could have shot Franco in self defense, but there is no way to prove it. Kate turns around and sees Roman and asks him when he'll stop hounding her. Roman says he only came here to unwind. Roman says that he's never seen her here before, but Kate says she used to come here with Victor a lot. Kate says she misses Victor and how she could use his support. Kate says she's very concerned about Billie and Roman says he is too. Kate asks Roman if there is a chance of a future relationship between him and Billie. Roman says he cares for Billie, but right now his main goal is to keep Sami out of jail. Kate tells Roman that she understands that, but she has told him everything she knows about the murder. Roman says that they would both do anything to help their children, but she went over the line when she hired Franco to break up Bo and Hope.

She decides that they need some time alone, so she'll take a walk. After she leaves, Bo tells Hope that he wants to prove to her that there is nothing keeping them apart now. Hope still is hurt by his betrayal with Billie. Bo tells Hope that he will never doubt her love again and will prove that she can trust in his love.

John tells Marlena that as long as they are together, Stefano can't hurt them. Marlena tells John that she wishes he'd give up this search for his past. John says that he can't do that and he thinks that once she gets to know Greta she will see that she is a good and honest person. Greta spots a falling star and wishes that Bo and Hope have a good night. Greta calls John and thanks him for believing in her. John says that he was just talking with Marlena about her. Greta says she hopes to get to know her better because she must be a wonderful person. Greta suggests that he invite Bo and Hope out to dinner because they deserve a night out. John suggests she come, but Greta says she would be a fifth wheel and she has plans. John asks her what her plans are and Greta says she wants to do something she needs to do.

Greta hopes Bo has a wonderful evening with Hope tonight. Bo gets dressed up and asks Greta what she is going to do. Greta says she's going to get out and see Salem now that she doesn't have to hide from Stefano. Hope comes downstairs and Bo tells Hope she looks like a princess.

Thursday, November 19, 1998

At the Java Cafe, Greta is being teased by some young boys. They taunt her with mean statements, when Billie shows up and pours milkshakes on their heads. The boys says that was mean, but Billie says that they were mean too. They decide to leave and Greta thanks Billie. Billie says she would have done it for anyone. Billie says she's leaving, but Greta asks her to stay because they need to talk. Billie gets upset, saying that she really doesn't feel like hearing Greta chew her out for her lies. Greta says she's not going to do that, they both deceived Bo. She continues saying that she is mad at herself for lying to Bo and that when she found out the whole story she should have told Bo right away. Hearing this, Billie starts in again about how Hope killed her baby, but Greta stops her and says no. Hope was now where near when Billie lost the baby. Greta tells her that she needs to get rid of her anger or it will consume her. Billie turns the conversation back to Bo. Greta says she doesn't expect anything more than friendship from Bo because she knows that Hope is the only woman Bo will ever love. Billie tries to convince Greta that Hope will not allow Bo to have anything to do. When Billie leaves, she recalls Bo's promise in the bayou that he will always protect her. Greta does not believe what Billie told her. The waitress comes by and brings her some food on the house. The waitress continues to say that Greta had a rough day, first with the boys and then with the lady. Greta looks up and says the lady was just trying to convince her of something but she knows she is wrong.

At the Blue Note, Kate and Roman decide to call a truce and be friends. They each offer to buy the other a drink and Roman says since it's the 90's, he'll let her buy. Roman comments on Kate's two sides - one being a lioness protecting her children and the other being a sweet and caring person. He asks which one she really is and she counters with which one he prefers. He just says it's not fair to answer a question with a question. Finishing their drinks, Kate buys the next round and they head to a table where they talk about Kate's past. She tells him how she believed Austin and Billie were dead and how when she got pregnant with Lucas. Being her only child (she thought) she swore she would do everything in her power to protect him. Roman says that is must have been hard being a single mom. Kate agrees and to protect them, she lied about Lucas being born out of wedlock. Roman perks up and asks her to elaborate: she explains she told everyone Lucas' father was a decorated war hero who died in action. Roman switches topics and asks about how she got ahead. Kate explains it was through hard work, 18 hour days and absorbing all the information she could from the people around her. Then Roman asks about her relationship with Stefano and when it started.

Kate has a flashback of seeing Stefano in a restaurant reading a paper with a headline about President Carter, but she lies and says her association with him began when he inherited Kristen's stock. Kate is getting nervous about all the questions about her past and tries to deflect the conversation. She says that since Hope and John looking into their past perhaps they will find something to put Stefano in jail. Roman hopes so too and they leave. They arrive back at the Kiriakis mansion; he followed her and walked her to her door. Taking the keys from her, he opens the door. After saying goodnight, Kate enters and Billie is there, wondering if that was Roman. Kate says that it was; they "ran into" each other at the Blue Note. Billie is suspicious, but does not say anything. Outside Roman has called Abe to update him on what he learned. He tells him that Kate is a very complex woman and thinks she has many secrets.

Lexie is in Mike's office and he congratulates her on becoming the surgical resident. The conversation turns to Mike and he confesses that he kissed Carrie last night. Lexie is worried about this and tells him it's not fair to use Ali to try to get over Carrie. Mike agrees and laments that it could have been a great relationship if it wasn't for Carrie.

In Carrie's office, she is listening at the door to Ali and another nurse talk. Ali is certain that she has the head nurse's job, and the nurse says that she wants Christmas day off. When the other nurse leaves, Carrie comes out of her office and confront Ali. Carrie asks if Mike told her she got the job. Ali tells Carrie that when you eavesdrop you don't hear everything right. What she said was that Mike told her she had a good chance. Ali starts to get snippy, saying what she and Mike talk about is none of her business, but Carrie says it is. Ali continues being a witch, saying that since Carrie is the head of the PR department, she is concerned about Mike and Ali causing a scandal since they are dating. Carrie agrees, but Ali tells her that she and Mike have quit dating until he chooses the new head nurse. This pleases Carrie, but then Ali continues and says that when it's over, they are going to pick up right where they left off. Carrie wonders just where that is. Ali remembers being with Mike but tells Carrie that is none of her business. Ali says that she is the only woman Mike has dated for a while and she intends to make sure he never strays. Carrie counters saying until she gets the job that is. Ali is furious and lays into Carrie saying that she is not using Mike to get the job and that if he chooses her then Carrie will have to live with it. She continues saying that as PR director she may control who sees Mike at work but stay out of her and Mike's personal life.

Nancy comes around the corner and asks what is going on. Ali sweetly says she was just giving Carrie some friendly advice and hopes she takes it and leaves. Carrie and Nancy go into Carrie's office where she fills her in on what she heard. Carrie wants to go talk to Mike about it, but Nancy warns her what happened the last time she talked to Mike about Ali. Carrie flashes back to the fight she had with Mike. In the meantime Craig runs into Ali and suggests she get on the good side of the other doctors so they will support her. She is shocked, thinking he means having sex with them but he says no show them you good nursing skills. Later, Mike sees her and says he thought she was done for the evening. She tells him no, another nurse asked her to fill in on a surgery because she thought Ali was more qualified. The surgeon walks up to Mike and is pleased that Ali will be helping him When Ali leaves, the surgeon tells Mike that Ali has his vote for head nurse. This gives Mike something to think about.

Over at the lab, Dr Rolf is working to combine Gina's memories so that it will all be ready when the sattelite is in position. As the computer is working, he suddenly panics as the data is about to be lost. He recovers and breathes a sigh of relief. He then hopes that Stefano can control Gina as he did before, but it's not his problem to worry about. As he is finishing up, he says that Hope might have some memory flashes but they should be so jumbled that it won't make sense.

Stefano and Vivian are dining and she comments that she is weak and perhaps should go home. Stefano convinces her not to saying his surprise will be worth the wait. She reluctantly agrees and goes to the ladies room. As she is returning, she asks the maitre' d who she came with. Rolling his eyes, he leads her back to Stefano. Abe, Ivan and Celeste arrive and are greeted by John, Marlena, Bo and Hope. They are there to celebrate Lexie's promotion. Abe shows them a gold locket he bought for Lexie as a gift. Lexie arrives and Abe makes a toast to her. He says how proud he is of her and her perseverance to become a doctor. As he is about to pull out the locket, Stefano asks for everyone's attention. He says how proud he is of his daughter and everyone applauds. He then hands her a bouquet of red roses and tells her when she leaves to hand the attendant the keys to her new Mercedes. Lexie is so happy and hugs him and thanks him as everyone looks on in shock. She turns back to Abe who pulls out the locket her has for her. Tears well up in her eyes and she says she is so proud of it and ask Abe to put it on. He does so and she wants to dance. John is very sweet and tells Abe that the car became used when it was driven off the lot but the locket will be passed down from generation to generation and one day she will place the locket on her daughter. Abe thanks him and says yes they are working on that family now.

Meanwhile, two police officers arrive and Vivian thinks he is trying to humiliate her in public and is have her committed. He says no as they hand him a big jewelry box. He opens it to display the jewels that Viv wanted while on the Empress Express. He puts them on her and he says he has another surprise for her. The waiter brings in some white roses. Apparently the ring was in them because Stefano picks something off the ring as he says to Vivian something about a poet saying to marry your equal. He then ask Viv to marry him. Ivan hears the proposal and goes ballistic but John stops him from doing anything stupid. Vivian accepts as they head to the dance floor. Everyone wonders what Stefano is up to now.

Bo and Hope are on the dance floor as she has a flashback of when she was Princess Gina and is running in a dark alley. Back to reality, she looks up at Bo with fear in her eyes.
