Belle waited while Chloe got dolled up to meet Shawn at the Brady Pub. When they arrived and found Philip there too, Chloe vowed to make him pay for canceling their date even though he apologized.

It was John who took Baby John from the front porch without Hope's knowledge, to try to get a DNA sample. When confronted by Bo and the barrel of his gun, John made up a story about the baby crying and he took him in an effort to comfort him without thinking about the consequences. Hope then told Doug, Julie and John that the baby has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, and John immediately said he would find the best doctors in the world to treat him, a suggestion that Bo turned down, saying that Dr. Maxwell is tops in his field. Doug and Julie said they would stay in Salem for as long as Hope wanted them to offer all their hope and support. John told Bo that he is having visions and although he can't see the face of the person giving him orders, he knows the voice is Stefano's. He said that he doubts that all of the visions he is having really happened. In the wake of this, John advised Bo to lay off Stefano.

Rolf returned from his vacation in the Cayman Islands and promised to get a DNA sample from Isaac as soon as possible. He started a plan to kidnap Isaac even though Stefano told him not to.

Fayearrived at the police station to talk to Abe about Brandon, but fled when she saw that Lexie and Isaac were also there. Upon learning she had come and gone, Lexie got very nervous and insisted to Abe that they use their home security system and keep their doors locked at all times. Fayedecided to wait for Abe in her car, hoping that Lexie and the baby would not come out of the station with him.

Due to mechanical problems, the Kiriakis jet won't be able to take off as scheduled. Kate takes a little time out to drag Lucas out of Victor's earshot so she can get in a few shots at Nicole, then have a little gal-fest about whose love life is worst. When Lucas' comments don't sit well with Kate, she moves to strike...but he stops her. She admits that being alone with Victor might jump start the relationship, but when she offers Lucas some romantic advice, he doesn't listen. He loves Nicole -- no way she'd run off with Eric! Inside, Nicole is making a phone call, begging for a chance to talk -- the mystery person on the other end finally agrees. Victor has been eavesdropping on her conversation, and calls her on her cattiness. After a few traded barbs, the conversation takes a distinctly sexual turn when Nicole starts flashing compliments at Victor, who is merely amused, before heading off. Suddenly Kate appears, telling him that the plane is ready. Victor's fishing for compliments, but it's Nicole that catches the bait on her way back through the room, giving her 'tiger' a kiss before she leaves, brushing Lucas off on her way out. Before heading off, Lucas, Kate, and Victor toast to Sami's imminent demise. Lucas accompanies the two to the airport, to get a few last minute instructions. Victor assures Kate that they will defeat Sami, no matter what they have to do.

At the hospital, Roman relates to Marlena the tale of Eric's leaving town, and she's surprised that he didn't say goodbye before he left. (Like she would have even noticed?) They trade guilt sessions about not being around when their children needed them, but what the heck -- what's done is done. Roman still feels like it's his fault -- he didn't support Eric, and they even fought before he left. Their conversation pretty much dies when Chloe and Belle (who is there to pick up her timetable) stop by. They jet, and Roman says he was just trying to make sure that Eric never felt as he did when Marlena left him. She reminds him that they still have their kids, and Roman says that's not enough, then heads out. Nicole is at Salem Place, and it turns out her phone conversation was with Roman Brady. The discuss her past with Eric, and she wants to know if he, like Eric, will give her a second chance. She says she can get him something -- full custody for Sami without Lucas having any! say in his son's life. Roman wants to know how, but all Nicole wants to know is, if she gets Will back for Eric, will he forgive her? She says she'll be with Eric no matter what, but she would like his blessing. The two almost end up in blows (prompting a concerned shopper to interject). They finally reach an agreement -- once Sami has full custody of Will, Roman will not stand in her way. To herself, Nicole reiterates her plan to get Lucas drunk.

Craig and Nancy continue to clog their veins with caffeine at the hospital. Craig wants to know what's up with Nancy, and she admits that she doesn't know how to reach Chloe. Craig's not too interested -- he's got a hospital to run. He tells her that if she'd calm down with Chloe, they'd get along better -- just like he and Chloe do. Belle and Chloe are at the hospital, talking about their plans for Mimi's family, when Chloe suddenly comes right out and accuses Belle of thinking she's a witch -- luckily Belle is saved by Nancy's appearance. They say howdy, but Chloe high-tails it out of there. Nancy is left with Marlena there looking in on her. She tells Marlena all about her problems, with Chloe, with the Lockharts...she feels like she and Chloe are competing for Craig's attention, with Chloe doing her best to get Craig on her side, but Nancy isn't going to stand for that anymore. She's tired of doing all the work in their relationship. Marlena tells Nancy she needs to calm down, and maybe see someone. Nancy says she'll think about it. Chloe and Belle see Craig give a nurse a lecture about worrying about her personal life rather than the welfare of her patients. They joke about his dictatorial tendencies (refering to him as Zeus), which Craig likes, joking that he should ask Nancy about a new name tag. Chloe scoffs that she'll never go for it if she knows it's her idea. Craig tells her to give Nancy a chance, and she agrees to get hi to go away. Chloe says she wishes Craig were the parent instead of Nancy. Belle says she should give Nancy a break, but Chloe says that if Nancy doesn't give HER a break, she'll regret ever having found her.

John visits Stefano, looking for information about his feud with the Bradys -- all he learns is that the feud started when Bo was just a child, and that it's apparently Shawn he hates. John realizes something else -- he's becoming Stefano's puppet. They talk about the paternity of Hope's baby, and about removing the chip from Hope's brain, and it's consequences. Stefano reminds John that learning what he did with Hope on the sub will destroy the Brady's. John thinks this is the only way out, and storms off.
