Craig decides that he'll have to work a little harder to make sure that Mike doesn't get the job, even if he has to get dirtier. Craig confronts Mike and congratulates him on his speech and then asks him if he's a little bit concerned about spending so much time with another man's wife, especially since everyone knows it's more than business. Mike tells Craig that Carrie is happily married to Austin and they have been friends since they were kids. Craig apologizes and says that it would be horrible if the board thought there was anything more going on. Craig leaves and Mike knows that Craig can't be trusted.

Stefano flashes back to when Hope was Gina and she was putting on some red lipstick.

Celeste shows up at the Horton house and grabs the package she sent to Hope before Hope could open it. Celeste says that sending this to her was a mistake because it can only hurt her. Celeste tells Hope that she lied to her earlier, she was with her the entire time she was at Maison Blanche. Celeste says that Hope had a very painful time and went through many reconstructive surgeries and she just didn't want her to go through that pain again. Hope says that if Celeste is telling the truth then there is no harm at letting her look into the box. Hope snatches the box back from Celeste and begins to open it. Inside is a box that contains some fabric, what appears to be a comb, and a silver compact with a "G" on it. Celeste tells Hope that Stefano made sure that Gina had everything she wanted. Inside the compact is some lipstick, which Hope puts on. Hope thinks about her past and Celeste asks her if she's remembered something. Hope tells Celeste that she hasn't remembered anything because she was at Maison Blanche for the entire for years. Hope also tells Celeste that it may be better that she not remembers the horrible four years of her life. Hope thanks Celeste for her help and Celeste tells her not to mention the box or their talk to Stefano. Celeste leaves and Hope knows that Celeste was lying and that Stefano put her up to it. Hope says that she is more determined than ever to find out what happened to her and to bring down Stefano DiMera. Bo shows up to see Hope later and Hope asks him what is Billie up to now.

Celeste goes to see Stefano and tells him about the lie she told to Hope about her being at Maison Blanche for the entire for years.
