Operation Save Chloe is underway in Salem as the town residents gather at University Hospital for a bone marrow drive, coordinated by Belle, Shawn, and the rest of the teenage gang. However, despite the fact that everyone is gathered for such a charitable event, it wouldn't be Salem if a few sparks didn't fly off during it. A discussion between Belle and Shawn over the alien sighting turns into a full blown argument. Belle accuses Shawn of taking the situation too lightly just as she says he did with the Jan situation. Shawn then calls Belle crazy, and walks away. While talking to Brady about why she can't completely forget or forgive Shawn for the Jan incident, Belle encourages Brady to tell Chloe about his love for her. An obsessed Philip overhears the conversation, and later confronts Shawn and then Belle about what he'd heard. He accuses Shawn of knowing about Brady's feelings all along, and accuses Belle of taking Brady's side. Shawn reminds Philip that he's behaving selfishly at a time when Chloe's health is all that really matters. Philips cools down some, but he tells Belle warn Brady that he better stay away from Chloe once she recovers. Meanwhile, Caprice spots Celeste at the hospital, and tries to avoid her, but to her dismay, the two women run into each other. When Celeste asks Caprice if she knows her, Caprice tells her no.

Sami spots Brandon at the hospital, but before she can talk to him, Lexie appears and asks Brandon for a few moments of his time.

She then tells Roman she has the situation under control, and calls Tony DiMera. She arranges to meet with him later the hospital. Meanwhile, Roman and Bo anxiously await the arrival of a new officer who has requested to train with Roman.

At the DiMera mansion, Tony receives a house call from John Black. John brings him a house gift, and the two have a very artificial and sarcastic conversation about Tony's adjustment to Salem.

Tony assures him that no one has ever broken into the mansion and lived to tell the tale.

The Wesleys are paid a special visit by the teen aliens. Nancy sees them and faints.

However, he and Nancy do discover that boy and girl stole Nancy's robe, along with Craig's shirt and tie. Craig later reports the incident to the Salem PD

After escaping from the Wesleys', The aliens retreat to a park, where they pull out a picture of Belle and Shawn. While looking at the photo, they lovingly reminisce over their encounter with the teen couple. Back at University Hospital, Sami again tries to convince Brandon to stay away from Lexie, telling him that she and Abe aren't over. Brandon tells her to mind her own business. Tony arrives at the hospital to talk to Sami, but is distracted by Lexie who tells him about her ordeal with Abe. The DiMera pair then runs into Craig, and immediatly a confrontation ensues. Tony threatens to sue Craig for defamation of character for his verbal attacks on Lexie. Later, Tony makes a $50,000 donation to the bone marrow drive. In a rival like move, John matches his donation. Lexie then tries to convince Brandon to quit University hospital and work at the Salem Clinic. Meanwhile, Sami and Tony finally sneak to a quit place in order to talk, but to their surprise, a suspicious John Black follows them.

Choice people around Salem received dinner invitations to the DiMera mansion from Tony. Marlena strongly protested although John thought they might have a good time. Marlena thought otherwise. Lexie tried to get Brandon to agree to accompany her, but he, too, was reluctant. Lexie was under the impression it will be only her, Brandon and Tony. Lexie told Brandon it would be a chance for Brandon to get to know Tony better. Brandon said he knows all he needs to know about Tony. Lexie finally talked Brandon into agreeing to dinner with Tony. Just then, Lexie noticed that Sami also was at the Brady Pub. Lexie was furious that Sami is following her and Brandon. But, she reasoned, she won't bother us tonight.

Bo confronted Billie about their past. He wanted to be sure she is "over him." Although Billie denied having any residual feelings for Bo, he didn't seem convinced. Bo suggested that Hope might have a problem with Billie being around. Billie questioned Hope's trust of Bo and Bo and Hope's relationship. Billie assured Bo that her only motives are to become a good cop. She insisted that Bo has nothing to do with it. Later, Bo told Roman and Abe if Billie wants to work a beat, he won't stand in her way.

Marlena asked John to cancel their dinner invitation with Tony, but John insisted he was going with or without Marlena. He told her he prefers to go with her, to present a united front. He asked Marlena to do it for him.

Sami talked to her grandmother at the pub. Sami won't tell who she's having dinner with. Caroline told Sami about a nice guy she'd like to fix her up with. Sami says absolutely not.

Sean and Belle met up with the alien teenagers in the park. The girl alien is clearly smitten with Sean, as she showed jealousy at seeing Sean and Belle kiss. The Salem teens tried to communicate with the aliens. The boy alien embraced Belle after she reached out a friendly hand. Sean got her away from him. A confrontation began to brew between Sean and the boy alien. Sean and Belle tried to demonstrate what a handshake means. Something spooked the aliens and they ran off through the park with Sean and Belle right behind. After a long chase, Sean gave up. The two humans decide they need to find the two aliens to protect them from getting into trouble. The aliens found their way to the docks, where a group of thugs were starting trouble.

Hope, John, Marlena, Caroline and Sean all get special delivery letters. The special delivery letters were invitations to the reading of Stefano's will. Each wondered why they would be named in Stefano's will.

Lexie continued trying to convince Brandon to leave the hospital and work at the clinic. Sami overheard and put in her two cents worth. Brandon refused to let Lexie pay for dinner even though she is an heiress and he's a working boy. Lexie finally agreed and got up to leave. Lexie and Sami exchanged snide remarks as the couple exited.

While Bo, Abe and Roman were discussing reports of the aliens, a call came in about trouble reported at the peer. Billie is off with Roman on her first assignment. The hoods on the pier found the alien couple and cornered them. Billie and Roman arrived.

Bo offered to help Abe by viewing the tapes from the hospital from the night of the baby switch. Bo said he was not looking forward to telling Hope that Billie is back and working in the police department.

John and Marlena gave Belle and Sean their instructions for the evening. John jokingly said he hoped the two had not been out chasing aliens all afternoon.

Bo encouraged Hope to attend the memorial and reading of the will as a means of closure. Hope sensed that Bo was hiding something and pressed him for answers. Bo finally gathered up the courage to tell Hope that Billie is back.

Brandon was the first to arrive at the DiMera mansion. Lexie was quite surprised when John and Marlena showed up, followed by Sami.
