Brady and Chloe argue in Salem Place. She congratulates him on his actions and talks about what a manipulator he is, especially with Dr. Evans. They argue over who is the worst brat. He calls her humorless, boring, untalented and not so attractive. They continue to argue and trade insults and she insinuates that when he got shot, he got what he deserved for hounding Dr. Evans. He gives her the poor me story about how he was mistreated by Marlena when he was raised. She doesn't buy it and says something about him pouring out his sad little heart to someone who was given up at birth and raised in foster homes. He tells her to go away and leave him alone. He hobbles off, but she follows snipping at him like a little dog after the mailman. He calls Philip a fool and says that she has no friends...or a soul. She calls him a sickening broken record. He insists that he is only trying to help her, but she wants none of his help.
He tells her that she needs to forget her pettiness and hurt feelings and listen to his advice. He also tells her that she may try to deny it, but they are cut from the same cloth and are a lot alike. Together, they just show the world. They talk about when they first met (pier flashbacks). She admits that when she met him, she saw a piece of herself in him. He tells her that he wants to teach her and that all she has to do is listen to him and she will be a star.
Belle and Mimi are at dotCOM as Belle berates her for spending time with Jan, the bad seed. Mimi gets upset because Belle always takes Chloe's side and warns Belle, that Chloe may dump Philip and go after Shawn next. Belle tries to act unconcerned, insisting that she and Shawn are just friends. Belle denies her feelings for Shawn, so Mimi says if she doesn't want him, she may go after him herself. Shawn comes in pushing JT in his carriage. His friends give him a hard time and all the girls all gush over little JT. Jan comes in and motions Mimi over as Shawn and Belle wonder what they are up to now. Jan tells her that it is time to put "Operation Opera Girl" into motion. Mimi is more interested in Shawn and Jan tells her to forget about him. (She calls Shawn and Belle, Ken and Barbie - complete with a little junior).
Mimi has flashbacks of Shawn kissing her in Paris but Jan snaps her back with an envelope of pictures of a fellow student (Susan Adamson). They look at them and laugh and make cracks about her weight (apparently she is heavy). Mimi has second thoughts about the plan, but Jan reminds her of all the things Chloe has done to them. Mimi is afraid they will get caught and expelled, but Jan assures her they WON'T get caught and if Chloe accuses them, no one will believe her. Jan informs Mimi that their plan hinges on Kevin Lambert. She says that she almost has him under her spell and that he is going to help them set Chloe up.

Shawn informs her that he wants to travel and see the world first (like his dad did) which doesn't sit too well with Belle. She says she would like to do that too, but with the right person and that Salem will ALWAYS be her home. Belle goes to get them drinks and when she returns, Shawn and JT are playing a video game (cute). They talk some more and Belle turns to JT for advice and notices something is wrong with him (we don't see.)

Stefano and Rolf are playing chess, and Rolf brings up how Stefano no longer seems to have any interest in his pawn - John.

They discuss the problems, and Stefano says that Lexie has to realize that in order to keep her son, she must divorce Abe. Rolf suggests offing Glen, as he would be very willing but Stefano refuses to even consider the acid bath. Rolf says Stefano never used to hesitate getting rid of those that crossed him or stood in his way, and Stefano says if he tried to do away with everyone who got in his way, well there are other ways.
Lexie arrives, very upset, and tells Stefano about Glen at the police station, and that Celeste told her to come to him. He consoles her, tells her to remain strong and focused.

Hope calls Bo, as Brady asks Belle and Shawn about Chloe. He does not understand why she lied about Philip and the rape, and Belle says she has no clue either.

He tells her to sit and wants to talk with her about crying rape against Philip. She tries to explain, but he berates her. In anger, she lets it slip that Victor is still alive.

At the hospital, Glen gets the info he needs from the blabbermouth nurses as Barb continues to work on Bo and Hope. Nurse Ellen takes JT to show him off in the nursery as Hope questions Barb on what happened at the police station. Barb talks about how everyone is stonewalling them and continues to question Bo and Hope. Glen comes back and tells her they need to leave. He smarts off to Bo and Hope and after they are gone, Bo and Hope talk about how all this scares them. Glen fills Barb in on what he learned and tells her that he has a plan. Bo and Hope talk about Abe and Lexie losing Isaac. Bo believes that Abe should come clean now and face the music, instead of later. But Hope begs Bo not to tell, assuring him that the adoption was on the level. But, Bo tells her that if Glen is indeed the father and he didn't know about the adoption, the whole picture changes. The nurse brings back JT and they are just glad that no one will take him away.
Abe shows up at DiMansion, upset with Lexie (for summoning him there) and demands that they go home. Stefano demands to know what Abe told Glen and Barb as Abe insists that it is none of his business. Abe and Stefano almost come to blows, as Lexie steps in and calms them both down. Abe tells them what happened and is sure that Glen and Barb will find the truth. Lexie begs "father" to do something to stop them. Abe objects to Stefano's involvement as Lexie bets him to reconsider. She tells Abe that if Stefano doesn't help, he will lose his son and HER as well. Abe is taken aback by this and finally gives in, saying that Isaac must be protected. Stefano points out that they will insist on DNA tests to prove that Glen is the father. If they match, he is sure that Glen can be paid off. Stefano also assures them that they can tie it with red tape up in court for years and it would eventually bankrupt Glen. Lexie is thrilled but Stefano and Abe begin to argue again. Abe wants to go home so they leave (with Lexie thanking Stefano on her way out). After they are gone, Stefano says thanks to him and the baby switching, there is NO WAY the DNAs will match. Outside, Abe gets beeped by the station and must go by there. Alone, Lexie thinks that she must take care of the situation. The only way to fix it is to make sure that Glen's DNA doesn't match her son's.
