At the Kiriakis Mansion the renovator comes to tell Kate that they finished renovating Austin's apartment, but found nothing. Vivian and Ivan listened from around the corner, and after the renovator leaves Vivian confronts Kate. Vivian says she knows Kate was looking for evidence, but Kate pretends that she has no idea what Vivian is talking about. Vivian says the balance of power is shifting, and soon Kate will end up with nothing. Kate laughs at Vivian and says once she learns what Vivian has on Kristen it will be Vivian who loses. Vivian says she has nothing on dear, sweet, Kristen, but Kate vows to find out. Kate says that if Sami did have something on her, she has amnesia now, while Kristen is in her right mind, Ivan sly says "That's a matter of opinion." Kate says if Kristen no longer needs Vivian anymore she'll find out and use it to oust Vivian. Kate leaves, but not before Ivan's body language gives away the fact that Vivian does have something on Kristen. Vivian scolds Ivan, and Ivan asks her what if Kristen doesn't need her anymore.

At the hospital Carrie tells Lucas that she can't work with him on the European issue of Bella because she's going to Hawaii with Austin. Carrie says that they need some time together, but they need time together. Lucas tells her he hopes she's happy, but in reality he hopes Sami will convince Austin to let her come home. Carrie leaves to go shopping in Salem place, and asks Lucas to tell Austin she had to get some things before their trip. Carrie goes shopping, and has fantasies about being in Hawaii with Austin.

Inside Sami's room Sami springs the news on Austin that she is coming home, and will continue her therapy as an out patient. Sami says she thinks if she's home with her son and husband her memory will return. Austin is in shock, and Sami asks him if he's happy that she is coming home. Austin says he's just surprised, especially since Mike was angry she snuck out last night. Sami says Mike didn't okay it yet, and Austin says he doesn't want her to do anything to jeopardize her recovery. Austin says it would make him feel much better if Mike okay'd this, and leaves to talk to Mike. Austin goes out to see Mike, and tells him that he has to make Sami stay in the hospital so Austin and Carrie can go off to Hawaii. Mike says he's uncomfortable about telling Sami not to go home, but he agrees to talk to Sami. Mike leaves, and Austin sees Lucas glaring at him. When Austin asks what his problem is Lucas calls him a hypocrite. Lucas says Austin is playing the happy husband to Sami, but is really jeopardizing her health by seeing Carrie behind her back. Austin tells Lucas that he's the one using Sami's amnesia to further his desire for Carrie.

Back in Sami's room Mike tells Sami he wants her to be prepared as possible before going home, and Sami says she will wait. Mike leaves the room and tells Austin that Sami will stay in the hospital. Austin is relieved, and when he asks Lucas where Carrie is, Lucas tells him she went to Salem place.

Kate shows up at the hospital looking for Austin, but only finds Lucas. Lucas tells her that Austin is at Salem Place buying stuff for his trip to Hawaii. Lucas and Kate get into a huge fight over her favorite son, and the fact that Kate doesn't give a damn against Sami, because if Sami recovers she'll remember what she has on her. Kate denies that Sami has anything on her, but Lucas says he thinks she does, and that when Austin learns it he probably will turn his back on her, but he's the loyal son. Kate says that she loves all her children equally, but Lucas doesn't believe that because she is determined to see Austin with Carrie. Lucas walks off, and Kate says Lucas is right about one thing, Austin would hate her if he learned what she had done. Kate goes back to Austin's and continues to search for the incriminating papers Sami has on her.

At the DiMera Mansion Kristen gives John Jr. to John, and outside Susan rings the doorbell, and starts knocking on the door.

Mike offers her a nurses aid, but Sami says she'll have Austin to help her, it's his support that will get her through this.

Outside Carrie tells Marlena the trip is off, and she can't keep on doing this, maybe it would be better if she gave up. Marlena tells Carrie she must not give up, but Carrie says the Sharade has gone on too long, she should be Austin's wife, not Sami. Marlena says perhaps being at home will trigger some of Sami's memories, and then they can have the marriage annulled and Austin can marry her. Carrie tells her she hopes that happens, and they hug.

Kristen tells Susan that John Jr. is her son, and she is under no condition to call his hers, call him Elvis, or nurse him.

Abe comes to the house with news on Roman. Abe is expecting a call at any time about Roman. John is feeling guilty because it was because of his inability to control his feelings for Marlena that drove Roman away and hurt so many people. John also hopes Roman will forgive Marlena and they can make up because he hates seeing Marlena alone. However, Abe says he's not so sure Roman and Marlena could get back together, but John thinks Marlena only considers him a friend.

John and Abe come up to see the baby, and Susan thinks Abe is going to a costume party as Colonel Taylor Parker (he's in his dress blues), but Abe says he's going to a charity event. John says Abe is the police commander, and Susan says it's nice to know a policeman, you never know when you might need one. Kristen tells Susan it's time she ran along, and Susan leaves to go back to her apartment. John tells Kristen that they are not hiring Susan, she is backwards and weird. Kristen tells John she's a real sweet person and they have to give her a chance.

Back at the Kiriakis Mansion Vivian and Ivan are trying to think up why Kristen hasn't called. Ivan is chugging brandy's and when Vivian asks how he could be so calm Ivan says he's happy that this mad scheme could finally be over. Vivian says if the truth is revealed she'll have no hold at Titan, so Vivian says she has to find that envelope Sami has on Kate. Vivian decides maybe if she went to see Kristen and offered her her friendship Kristen may continue to support her at Titan.

On her way out Vivian and Ivan come to the and Susan tries to shut them out. John and Abe come down stair, and John yells at Ivan carrying a rubber snake in his pocket and scaring Kristen.

Suddenly the phone rings, it's Abe's contact with news on Roman.

Upstairs Vivian asks Kristen what she was thinking, and Kristen says the baby has to be nursed with breast milk because of the surgery. Vivian tells her what she'll do when Mamie Yocum tells John that John Jr. is really Elvis. Kristen says she doesn't know, so Vivian offers to help her try and get rid of Susan once and for all, and Kristen thanks her for all the help she's given her.

At her place Susan puts on Kristen's wig and teeth, says everyone thinks she's Kristen with the wig and teeth (A foreshadow?). Suddenly Marlena knocks at the door, and Susan takes the wig and teeth out and puts them on the table! She lets Marlena in, and Marlena asks where the baby is. Susan says the baby isn't here, but she's going to move in with her husband and the woman he's with now. Marlena doesn't think Susan has thought this through carefully, but Susan says she has a plan to get him back for sure. Marlena says there are other ways to get the baby back, but Susan says everything is okay. Marlena says she is concerned for her, and perhaps she and her husband, and the other woman for a session, and Susan says it might be fun. Susan then offers to fix Marlena a cup of tea, but Marlena has to leave.

Kristen comes in to talk to Susan, but Susan says now is not a good time. Kristen says there has been a change in plans, and shows her an article on Stefano and his crimes. Kristen says if she crosses Stefano she might end up on that list, and nobody would suspect a thing. When Susan asks what she is saying Kristen says she's saying she should forget about John, her, and the baby. Kristen leaves, and after she's gone Susan says she's not going to let anyone get in between her and her Elvis.

Marlena shows up at the DiMera Mansion. She sees the various resumes of the baby nurses, but senses John isn't happy about the baby nurse they hired.
