Sami is dreaming about Austin (flashbacks of them making love) but in her dream, he changes to Brandon, who tells her that they belong together. Meanwhile, Austin is in his apartment, tossing and turning. He wakes up and says that he should have not let that happen...it was a big mistake and is mad at him for giving in. As Sami continues to sleep, Will comes in and wakes her up, wanting his daddy. He tells her that Lucas was there earlier and she is furious. He asks if daddy can live with them. She says no and Will says that he wants his daddy and runs off. Sami is really mad as she spits that Lucas is going to ruin everything. She calls Austin and tells him that she's having a problem with Will and asks him to come over. Austin goes right over and Will tells him that he misses his daddy. Austin talks with him and puts him back to bed. Sami thinks to her that once she has Austin, all will be perfect. When he comes back, he tells her that she can't keep him from his daddy.
Sami's phone rings it's Brandon, who's at a bar drinking his troubles away. He wants to come over, but she brushes him off. When she gets off the phone, Austin asks, "How is Brandon?" She lies and swears it was Roman on the phone. Austin starts again about Sami keeping Lucas and Will apart. He says that Will will end up hating her in the end., Sami just wants Austin to hold her. She is in 7th Heaven as she prattles on and on about them. He says that they need to talk. She talks about how wonderful what they did earlier was. He tells her that it was a huge mistake and that it can't happen again. Cue a shocked and hurt look from Sami.
Meanwhile, back at the Cheatin' Heart, a woman hits on Brandon. She asks him about his wedding ring and explains about Angela, but now she is gone. Sandy encourages him to move on with the living. She challenges him to a game of pool, which Brandon wins. She tells him that the winner gets what ever he wants (he fantasizes about making out with Sami on the pool table). When he snaps back, he tells Sandy to leave him alone and she storms off.
Brady and John are at the penthouse, talking about how well Brady is doing with his walking. He tells him that when Belle and Marlena get home, they need to talk. Belle shows up and John can tell something is wrong, but she doesn't talk about it. Brady gets upset because both Belle and Marlena know what the meeting is about as Belle tells him to shut up; she is no mood for it. Looking over the balcony, Brady spots Roman dropping Marlena out front off and assumes the worst.
Out front, Marlena and Roman talk about how happy they are for Sami. Roman is bound and determined to go after Kate and Lucas, but Marlena talks him out of it. She tells him to let it go, Sami is happy and doesn't need the revenge. He finally gives in...for now. But if Sami changes her mind, he will help her out. He gets a call on the radio about a fire in the "mansion district" and he takes off. Upstairs, Brady continues to make cracks about Marlena and Roman and John tells him to quit spying and Belle pops him one and goes inside. Brady follows and she jumps him. She tells him that she had a bad night and to cut it out. She goes on to give him a brief explanation of what happened with Chloe and Philip. She informs him that Philip did NOT rape Chloe and that she stayed with her during her exam.
Brady wants to know why Chloe lied about it in the first place. Belle clams up and won't say anymore. Marlena comes in as Brady and Belle head for the kitchen. She joins John on the balcony and gives him her good news about Sami. Belle and Brady hear her and come out to the balcony. Belle is thrilled for Sami (John is as well) but not Brady. He acts like an ass and starts mouthing off about Marlena and Roman spending so much time together. John tells him to shut up and not ruin this moment for Marlena. As Brady goes on and on, John looks as if he could shove him over the edge of the balcony. John again tells him to let it go. Belle tells her mom not to let Brady get to her when she is so happy. But Brady keeps on and says something about Roman having an extra X chromosome...since he can't stay away from his "EX." Marlena tells them they need to have their family meeting. To which Brady says she sounds like the nun in the "Sound of Music." John tells him to shut up and that there are new rules in this house and he will obey them. He tells him that everyone is to treat everyone with respect and courtesy. And whoever breaks this rule will have to find a new place to live. Brady explodes and says he is out of there and storms off.
Outside the mansion, Kate tries to convince herself that she did the right thing as the mansion goes up in flames. She thanks God that Philip and Lucas weren't at home. Meanwhile, we see Philip in the house yelling for her as Nicole searches for Victor. Nicole finds Victor and they try to get out as the house begins to collapse around them. Philip rushes upstairs but no one sees Lucas in the floor. Outside Chloe yells for Philip as Victor and Nicole finally escape through a side door. Once outside, Chloe rushes up and tells them that Philip is inside. Victor rushes back inside for him. Philip is in Kate's room and opens the window. Kate sees him and begins yelling for him to jump. Roman arrives and Henderson goes to find a ladder. Philip jumps out the window to a tree and shimmies down (just as flames burst out the window). He gets to the ground as Kate hugs him and he tells her that he was looking for her. Nicole is holding Victor back from going inside as Chloe runs around the house and tells them that Philip is okay.
Philip asks Kate what happened and she begins telling him about her "nightmare" of seeing Victor. Philip realizes that Victor must be inside and starts back in but Kate stops him. Chloe comes back around the house and hugs Philip and whispers to him that Victor is out back and is okay. Philip tells Chloe what happened and that he must find his dad and talk to him. He says this MUST stop (talking about torturing Kate). Henderson tells Kate the house looks like a total loss and she agrees, as we see Lucas lying in the foyer. Nicole notices that Victor's head is bleeding and he tells her that Kate whacked him with a poker and that he thinks she started the fire.
Philip and Chloe sneak off to talk and return to the infamous stables. They talk about what all has happened this evening and he holds her. He tells her he is so sorry she got hurt, but she tells him it's not his fault. She knows whom to blame...Nancy. They kiss and Philip tells her that he loves her.
The fire department has now arrived and Davis (the driver) shows up. Kate asks him where Lucas is and he tells her that he dropped Lucas off here earlier and he said he was going to bed. Kate starts screaming and rushes to the house to save him. Roman restrains her and goes inside himself. Around back, Victor hears Kate's screams for someone "to save him." He realizes that Lucas must be inside and heads in, but Nicole stops him, telling him it's too late. Roman finds Lucas as the ceiling starts to collapse. Outside, Kate is devastated and says if he dies, it's all her fault. Roman carries Lucas outside to waiting paramedics, who rush him off in an ambulance. Roman confirms to Kate that it WAS Lucas inside as she screams/cries "NO...NO...NO!!!" and collapses to the ground
