Rex thought he figured out Mimi's secret and rushed to the hospital to look for her at the nursery. Instead he found Lexie whom he told that he wanted to start a family with Mimi but to do so now would be a huge mistake. Lexie took a call from an emotional Mimi and when Rex heard her name, asked to speak with her. Reluctantly, Lexie gave Rex the phone. He reminded Mimi that their anniversary was in December and Mimi played along, finally telling Rex she loved him and hanging up. A worried Rex decided to do something to cheer her up.
Later at the loft, a shaky Mimi stumbled her way to her front door, contemplating the fact that she went through with the abortion. Rex greeted her and sat her down on the couch. An emotionally drained Mimi smiled weakly at Rex who brought out a Teddy Bear and told her, "I know you've been thinking about having a baby a lot lately and even if we had one now, we could make it work." A crushed Mimi laughed to herself, tears falling from her eyes.
Shawn continued to blame Belle for the deaths of his family from her lie about Marlena. Philip stood up for Belle and grabbed Shawn by the shirt. Still worked up, Shawn threatened to kill Philip.

While Nicole was down at the Salem Police Headquarters snooping for info on whether Jan had been caught, she happened to hear Brady questioning Tek. As Tek and Brady discussed the disappearance of John and Bo, Nicole eavesdropped outside the office at the police station. Tek told Brady about the mysterious message Bo translated from his boyhood code with Roman. Brady believed his father might still be alive with the other undead Salemites but Tek wasn't so sure. Full of his dad's spy spirit, Brady planned on catering a Jet to the military area where John and Bo went down. Nicole rushed in to insist on going with him but Tek put his foot down, telling the couple that no one was going because the coordinates were classified. Clever Nicole distracted Tek with talk about how she already knew where the island was because she distracted other officers. With his back turned to Brady, Brady snatched the Melaswen file and memorized the coordinates. Sensing he was beat, Tek joined up with a gung ho Brady, leaving Nicole in the dust. Not one to take the brush off, Nicole followed them down to Key West where they had chartered a speed boat to get to the island.

Shawn returned to his Loft apartment to learn that Mimi was living there now. Refusing Rex's offer to use a spare room, Shawn went to collect his things. Deliberately knocking Mimi's purse over, Jan found the Women's Clinic paperwork, deciding to keep "this piece of evidence...it might come in handy." Moments later, Rex could not get a straight answer as Mimi searched for the papers. Mimi couldn't convince Shawn to change his mind about Belle.

At the DiMera compound John and Hope realized they'd found Bo and Billie. Darts shot through the air as Hope ran to Bo's arms. A struggle ensued causing DiMera's operatives to radio for back-up. Grabbing one of the guns, Billie threatened to kill an operative who threatened Hope's life. "I don't take orders from you. I know what I have to do." But the operative was unable to follow orders as Billie shot him. But as darts cut through the air, each of the captives were cut down, including John after intercepting more darts by hand.
Waking in a holding cell, Hope noted one window with sharks on the other side of the glass. A screen lowered revealing their captor, Count Anthony DiMera, welcoming them to their new home. Reveling in his plot, Tony was like a crazed madman when Hope mentioned staging their deaths. "My personal favorite in all my illusions! ... You should have kept me in jail when you had the chance." As he recounted Kate's bloodcurdling screams on her wedding night, Roman threatened to tear Tony's head off with his bare hands. Saying they were close to 20,000 leagues under the sea, Tony mused how they would die if he opened the doors - by drowning or sharks.
The Count left them to figure it his motives for themselves. Blaming them for their situation, the six listened unhappily as Tony named those left in the safety of New Salem. "You could have been in the Brady Pub with all your friends having a little cordial ... they probably think you all died in the jungle." Threatening vengeance on his half-brother, John watched as a laughing DiMera promised to meet him in hell, and the screen disappeared. Angry as he watched Bo and Hope console one another, the Count gave a command, "Pull 'em out now." Suddenly unable to move, the captives found their feet magnetized to the floor as the ocean window was covered. Helpless, Bo screamed as operatives shot Billie and Hope into unconsciousness and carried them out. Tony said Bo would never see Hope or Billie again.
In New Salem, Abe was startled by a sound outside the house but delighted to find Tek. Asking for news from home, he was stunned to hear that Lexie was fine and had moved on while Tek insisted "not romantically." Producing a satellite phone, Tek hoped to reach the ISA while Abe hoped to reach Lexie. But a surge in power destroyed the phone as they realized it was more of Tony's interception.
Telling Bart it was time for the final stage of his plan, the Count added, "Fortunately, everyone has been accounted for." But lost in the jungle Brady and Nicole caught sight of a jeep bearing the palm tree emblem. Hiding in the back, they got out when the jeep reached its destination where another palm tree emblem was displayed. A curious Brady walked forward unaware that his shoe was about to trip a wire.
