Philip woke up in the loft and panicked a little when he couldn't find Belle. He rolled his wheelchair into the hallway outside to find Mimi returning to her apartment. Mimi was vocal about her anger toward Belle, but Philip continued to remind her that she should not have kept that secret from Rex. Frustrated, Mimi blurted out that Belle shouldn't keep secrets either. When Philip asked if there was anything he did not know, Mimi could only mention that Shawn was still in love with Belle. Philip said he already knew that. When he wondered whether Belle was getting fresh air up on the roof, he asked Mimi to help him up the stairs. Worried that Belle was with Shawn and an interruption could get them back together, Mimi avoided the confrontation by saying Belle was probably checking on her mother.

An insulted Roman couldn't believe John supported Kate, but John told Roman he had no idea how awful Sami was to Kate when she tried to reach out to her. John also argued that Kate was just protecting her son. Incensed, Roman said Lucas did not need protecting. Roman then told John that Marlena knew that John was not too helpful to Sami while she was gone and that might be why she did not tell him about the affair or the baby because she was not sure she still wanted to be with him. Then Roman asked him why he wanted to be with Marlena when he had so much in common with Kate, including their feelings about Sami.
Chuckling, John said that Roman clearly just wanted to get Marlena back. Kate tried to intervene and Roman verbally smacked her down saying, "It makes me sick to think that I ever loved or trusted you."
