The Last Blast is in full swing as John and Hope watch from the sidelines. She starts on him about her wanting to remember what happened. Out on the dance floor, Belle tells Shawn that she is worried that something is up and that Mimi is involved. Mimi finishes her mission (with the slides as Brady sees her) and Jan says all they have to do now is sit back and enjoy the show. Jan says that she can't wait to see Chloe "naked as a jaybird" on the big screen. Meanwhile, Philip confronts his mother and demands she leave immediately, to which she refuses. While this confrontation is going on, Brady watches and (to Nicole) calls Philip a loser for talking with his mommy. Philip tries to get her to leave, saying he is worried about her. She informs him that he isn't worried about her, but about himself. He storms off to Chloe and tells her all about it. She takes up for Kate and then THEY argue. He wonders what else could go wrong. Shawn and Belle talk about Mimi as Susan comes by and talks with them. Belle compliments her on how nice she looks and is glad she came.
Hope reminds John that he promised to tell her the truth, but he refuses to tell her anything. Roman walks up and asks them what is going on. Hope lies and tells him they were disagreeing about the music at the dance. John is extremely rude to Roman as he takes Hope and they leave to talk privately. On their way out, they run into Belle and Shawn (who are both anxious for them to leave). Shawn reminds Belle that if they are going to win the dance contest, they need to practice and they hit the dance floor. Jan and Mimi keep arguing over the slides. Mimi keeps trying to back out of it, as Jan berates her, calling her a wimp. While observing Philip and Chloe, Brady points out that Philip loves her, but she doesn't love him back. Nicole thinks that is because Chloe has the hots for Brady. Brady says that she hates him, but Nicole disagrees and says that Victor would be so pleased with him if he stole Chloe away from Philip. He denies feelings for her, but Nicole says that he protests too much.
Nicole spots Kate by the punch bowl and doesn't pass on the opportunity to give her a hard time. She makes a beeline over there and they exchange barbs. Nicole really rubs it in about her new life and how Victor is so good to her. Kate turns around and Nicole warns her if she throws that punch on her, she will stick her head in the punch bowl. Kate calls her an ignorant slut. Nicole comments on Kate's dress and asks her if Janet Reno had a yard sale.
Belle and Shawn are sure that they will win the dance contest. Kevin tells Susan that he is really glad she decided to come and she admits she is having a good time. They talk about how next year they will be competing for Valedictorian. She tells Kevin he can have it, because she doesn't want to give a speech. She says that there would be too much name-calling. Mr. Woods tells her that if he hears any name calling there tonight, that person will wish they never came to the dance. Meanwhile, Brady is eavesdropping on Mimi and Jan. Mimi is worried they will get in trouble and will go to jail. Brady hears Jan say something about a website and he wonders what is going on. The dance contest is ready to begin but Chloe refuses to dance in it. Philip gets upset, but she points out that they were king and queen last year and that they should give someone else an opportunity to shine...like Shawn and Belle. Kevin starts the slide show and the first slide is of Philip covered in blood, which he doesn't like one little bit. Everyone is laughing and Mr. Woods shuts them up.
There is something wrong with the sound system and Kevin decides to stop the slide show for now. The contest starts as Kevin and Susan are the first to take the floor and they really do a good job as they do a sort-of tango dance. Jan and Jason are next and they aren't bad either, but their dance looks more like a make-out session to me...lots of touching and rubbing. Shawn and Belle are next and right in the middle of their dance (as Shawn dips her) they go into a fantasy sequence of just the two of them dancing alone in the gym to a slow song, bathed in blue light. They pop back to real-time for their big finish. After the contest. Belle and Shawn are announced as the winners. They go up to accept their trophy as Shawn jokes and says that he'd "like to thank the academy." Belle takes the microphone and says that they don't deserve it and walks over and hands the trophy to Susan and Kevin. Susan is beaming until some guy calls her "Gigantor." Kevin informs him that her NAME is SUSAN. Belle adds "...and she ROCKS." Everyone starts applauding (lead by Shawn and Belle). Meanwhile, Philip and Chloe argue again about how she won't tell him what her summer plans are to make money.
After her run-in with Nicole, Roman comes over to Kate to see if she is okay. He asks about Lucas and she informs him that there is no change, she calls and checks on him every day. He tries to comfort her, but she tells him that she doesn't want or need his condescending or hypocritical sentiments. She KNOWS he hates Lucas and it's all because of Sami's lies. She defends Lucas's honor and says that Sami walked all over him. Roman suggests that Kate try to get along with Sami. She grabs him by the arm and he tells her to let him go. When he jerks away from her, her dress rips, exposing her famous black bra. Everyone standing around there starts laughing at Kate, which infuriates Philip. He tells her to leave and she does. Roman asks Philip if he is proud of himself. Roman follows Kate and offers her a ride home, which she refuses. Outside, Kate says to herself, sorry about that Philip, but you reacted exactly like she wanted. Roman spots John and Hope and wonders what is up with them.
Hope and John are walking the hallways of the school as John asks her if she is really ready to learn the truth about her life as a criminal. Hope asks John if Gina planned on having a child and John informs her that he (John) was the love of Gina's life. He warns her that this is NOT a game and that Gina is still there, in her head, and that Stefano could bring her back at any time and that he has already done it twice before. This startles Hope who asks if he thinks that Stefano would try to punish her, since he was driven from Salem, away from his daughter and grandson. He tells her that Stefano called him and insinuated that he would get revenge against the Brady's. He tells her that he has a way to fix things if Stefano ever plans on using her again. He spots Roman watching them and changes the subject, then the two of them return to the dance.
Kevin gets the problems with the slides fixed as they start showing them again. We see scenes flash across the screen...Belle as a cheerleader, Belle and Mimi studying, Philip and Chloe at last years dance, etc. as LeAnn Rimes' "I Need You" begins to play. Philip and Chloe head to the dance floor as two girls note that they are perfect for each other. Belle catches up with Mimi and demands to know what is going on. She denies that anything is going on, but then says it wasn't her idea. When Kevin walks away, Brady starts messing around with the slides, trying to stop what is about to happen. Chloe sees him and wonders what he's doing. Jan and Mimi also see him and panic. Kevin comes back and runs Brady away from the slide projector as Philip and Chloe continue to dance. As everyone watches the slide show and applauds, Mimi is shouting at Jan that it's wrong and she has to stop it, but Jan holds her back. All of a sudden, everyone starts laughing and hooting as the picture of Chloe flashes across the screen with "opergirl.net" across it. Someone yells that Chloe is selling herself on the internet. Philip turns to her, furious, and screams "So this is how you are going to make your money?...How COULD you?" He storms out of the gym. Belle yells "Who did this?." Kevin yells "He did it...I saw him" and points at Brady as everyone stares in his direction. Chloe looks at him as he shakes his head no and she is in tears.
At the dance, Hope continues her attempt to get information about her life as Gina out of John. She reminds him that he promised her he'd tell her what she wanted to know, but John is angry that she would use his love for his son to get information out of him. Roman interrupts and asks them what's going on, but Hope covers, saying that they were just discussing the music. They quickly excuse themselves, but Roman is obviously not convinced. Later, in the empty hallways of the high school, Hope once again tells John she is ready to hear about Gina's past. John takes it a bit further this time, and asks if she is ready to remember living a life of crime and being in love with him the whole time. Hope is shocked- she doesn't think that they were together for the whole year- but John tells her that when they WERE together, their love was real and intense. Hope wonders if Gina planned to have a baby, and John admits that he isn't sure- but he IS sure that he was the love of Gina's life. He reminds Hope that Gina is still alive, locked somewhere inside of Hope's mind, and that Stefano could unlock those memories whenever he feels like it. Hope wonders why he would do that again, when he's already done it twice, but then realizes that he would do it because they tore him away from his family. John tells Hope that he got a call from Stefano, and that he said he was going to get back at the Brady's. John says he thinks he has a way to prevent Stefano from turning her into Gina again, and that when Stefano decides to make a move, John could be ready for him.
Mimi nervously checks the slide projector to make sure that Chloe's slides are in place, as Brady watches her. Jan assures her that all they have to do now is sit back and watch Chloe's public humiliation along with everyone else. Mimi is still worried that they will get put in jail for what they are doing. Jan assures Mimi that they won't go to jail because they didn't do anything illegal, but Mimi isn't convinced. Brady listens in on their conversation, and hears Jan mention the web site, which piques his curiosity.
Belle tries to enjoy herself with Shawn, but she can't shake the feeling that Mimi and Jan are up to something horrible. When Susan walks by, Belle tells her that her hair looks really nice. Shawn asks her to join them on the dance floor sometime when she's not busy, which pleases both Belle and Susan. John and Hope stop by to compliment the couple again, but Shawn politely reminds them that they are on a date and would like to be left alone. After John and Hope leave, Shawn suggests that he and Belle get back on the dance floor to practice for the competition. After tearing up the dance floor, Shawn jokes that they are a shoe-in to win.
Philip is appalled when Kate walks in wearing her second-hand dress, and demands that she leave immediately. She tells him that she can't leave the dance because she is a chaperone, and it seems that her plan is working perfectly. Philip doesn't want to take "no" for an answer, but Kate once again puts him in his place, reminding him that not everyone is as rich as the almighty Kiriakis family. Philip heads back to Chloe and shares his complaints with her, but she thinks he's being superficial. Philip insists he's only worried about his mother, because Nicole is at the dance and he's afraid of what she might say to Kate.
Brady watches Chloe on the dance floor alone, and expresses to Nicole his disbelief over Philip leaving Chloe to talk to Kate. He tells Nicole that she looks bored, and soon after, Philip and Chloe walk over to say hello. Chloe congratulates Brady on being able to dance tonight, and Nicole brags that she's gotten to know Brady tonight and he's a great guy. Chloe tells Nicole that it's really hard to get to know Brady, and then assures Brady that she was being sincere when she congratulated him earlier. She and Philip head back to the dance floor, and Nicole tells Brady that she understands why he said Chloe looked bored- she looks like she'd much rather be with Brady. Brady tries to convince Nicole that Chloe hates him, but she thinks he's wrong. Nicole tells Brady that Chloe only says she hates him to cover her true feelings, and adds that it'd be the perfect way to break Philip and Chloe up. Brady agrees, but insists that Chloe only puts up with him because he is Belle's brother, and promptly excuses himself, obviously upset by the conversation. Nicole spots Kate and heads over to stir up trouble, but Kate seems to handle her well; she tells Nicole that it must be driving her crazy seeing all of these young, attractive guys after spending so many sleep-filled nights with Victor. Roman watches them from a distance. They hurl insults at each other, and as Nicole walks away, she tells Roman that Kate has certainly seen better days. Roman heads over to check on Kate, who insists that she is fine. Roman asks about Lucas, but Kate says there has been no change yet. Kate calls Roman a hypocrite- she knows that he doesn't care about Lucas- and the two argue. Roman accidentally tears Kate's dress, making her look even worse in Nicole's and Philip's eyes. Kevin's camera catches Kate on the projection screen, and the whole room starts laughing at her. Philip tells his mother to leave, and Kate decides to take his advice this time. Roman asks Philip if he is proud of himself, and Mr. Woods yells at Kevin, who insists that someone pushed him into Kate, causing him to get the shot of her on the screen. Roman runs after Kate, and offers to give her a ride, but Kate says she'll take a cab. Roman catches a glimpse of Hope and John talking down the hallway. He wonders what is going on between the two, but John notices Roman before Roman can hear anything incriminating. Roman is still suspicious.
Susan and Kevin are genuinely enjoying themselves, and Kevin tells her that there will be no hard feelings next year, when they are battling it out for valedictorian honors. Susan tells him that he can have it- she doesn't want to make that speech, because she knows everyone will call her names the whole time. Mr. Woods, who happens to be walking by at the time, assures Susan that if he catches anyone calling her names tonight, he will make them wish that they hadn't even attended the dance.
The dance competition begins, and Shawn and Belle, Susan and Kevin, and Jan and Jason are among the competitors. Just then, something appears on the projection screen, and the whole room is filled with laughter. Philip expresses disbelief, but the picture isn't of Chloe- it's of Philip, covered in chicken blood. Mr. Woods makes everyone stop laughing, but Philip is furious. Chloe calms him down, and he asks her to dance with him in the competition, but Chloe tells him they won last year, and she'd like to give someone else a chance- namely, Belle and Shawn. Philip is impressed by Chloe's gesture. The competition begins, but the slide show has been postponed- Kevin thinks the projector is keeping the sound system from working properly. Shawn and Belle heat up the dance floor and ultimately win the competition. Belle and Shawn are happy about the honor, but Belle says that they don't deserve the trophy, and gives it to Susan, who is touched. Two teenagers try to call Susan names, but Kevin and Belle stand up for her, saying that Susan "rocks". Shawn tells Belle that what she did was really nice, but to him, Belle will always be the best.
Philip is excited about spending the summer with Chloe, but Chloe reminds him that he has to study this summer and she has to make money for college. Philip is still upset that Chloe won't tell him how she intends to make the money. Elsewhere, Brady tries to check the projector, but he's too late- the slide show has begun. Jan tells Jason that as long as Mimi doesn't blow it, their plan will go off without a hitch. Belle and Shawn ask Mimi again if something is going to happen, and Mimi insists that whatever happens, it wasn't her idea. When Kevin leaves the projector, Brady starts inspecting the slides, as a curious Chloe watches. Mimi and Jan see Brady inspecting the slides and worry that he has caught them, but Kevin chases Brady off before he is able to find the incriminating slides. Chloe worries about Kate, but Philip tells her not to let Kate ruin their night. Outside, Kate is quit pleased with the events of the evening, and thinks that Victor will take pity on her when he hears about it from Philip. In the gym, Shawn and Belle watch Chloe and Philip, but at that moment, the slide of Chloe goes up on the screen, with the address of the website at the bottom of the slide. Philip is furious- he thinks that the website is how Chloe is planning to make her money- and runs out of the gym. John tells Kevin to turn the projector off, and Belle demands to know who did this. Kevin points to Brady, and says Brady was messing with the projector. Chloe is humiliated.
