Rolfe tells Lexie that he's going to kill Barb. Lexie tells him no way, then this will never end. Suddenly, Abe shows up and and demands to know what is going on. Lexie tells Abe a half truth, that Barb is blackmailing her, but she says that Barb thinks she and her father blew up the lab to hide the DNA results. Abe asks her if she is guilty? Abe says he's always known there was evil here, and now he is looking at it! Lexie can't believe that Abe is calling her evil for trying to protect her own son. Lexie tells Abe that she will always protect Isaac, and she'll never let him make her feel like doing that is sick and wrong! Lexie runs up to her room and locks herself if.

At the hospital, Glen is stunned to learn that his son is alive. Barb says their baby is fine, but Glen says she said Marlo's baby, and demands to know what she knows. Barb tells him that the baby Bo and Hope are are raising is his son. Glen doesn't understand how this could be, Abe and Lexie adopted Marlo's baby. Barb says there was a mistake at the hospital, and the babies were switched. She explains everything to Glen, and says she is sorry. Glen is furious, and says he's going to get his son! Barb begs him not to go, and she says she has a plan to get his son back, for good!

At Bo and Hope's, John and Marlena leave Bo and Hope to talk. Marlena hopes Bo knows what it means to love someone so much you can't imagine not forgiving them, because that is what she says it will take for them to get through this. Bo and Hope go inside, and Hope puts JT down. Bo looks at a photo of himself and JT, and remembers when their family was happy. Hope returns and tells Bo that she is so sorry, but feels relieved that the secret is out. Bo tells Hope that everything they had together ended tonight, for good! Bo tells Hope that he thinks he's never known the real her at all. Bo is upset that she went to John tonight for help, and not him. Hope asks Bo if he is going to leave her? Bo asks her if she really think he would walk away from the committment he's made to their family and marriage? Hope says she doesn't want him to stay becuase he feels obligated. Bo tells her not to push him, because he knows now that he can never trust her again. Bo then walks out the door! Hope follows Bo, and tries to talk to him. Bo says he is glad to be JT's father, but he cannot go back to being the Bo he was before tonight. Bo asks Hope are there others who know that are laughing at him behind his back. Hope says that Lexie knows, she figured it out. Bo asks why she didn't convince Lexie that she was wrong, like she did when he thought he figured it out! Bo thinks maybe she only lies to her husband. Hope says that he wanted to kill the man who did this to her, and she also knew that if he knew he wouldn't love JT. Bo says that he was able to love JT because part of him from her. Bo says he will keep loving JT as if he was his own, but he will never forgive her for always wondering "what if I can't!" Hope goes back inside and breaks into tears. Shawn returns home and asks her what happened. Hope says that she and his dad just had a fight, and he is upset with her now.

Barb says that kid is sick, and they will need a lot of money to take care of him. Barb says they have to be smart about this, they should get the money before they snatch the kid. Glen doesn't care about the money, but Barb does. Barb convinces her what they can do with the money, such as send their kids to college. She claims they wouldn't be doing this for them, they'd do it for their kids. Glen, however, refuses, and says it is too late.

At the mansion, Abe catches Lexie and Rolfe consipiring once again, and he wonders what they are up to. Lexie says that Rolfe was just going to run and errand for her. Rolfe leaves, and Abe knows Lexie is lying to him. Lexie says she isn't not lying, Barb and Glen are blackmailing her because they think she and her father blew up the DNA lab. Abe knows she is lying and wants the truth, so Lexie admits that is not why she is being blackmailed. She then lies AGAIN and says that they are blackmailing her because they somehow found out that John is the father of Hope's baby. Abe is shocked, because he didn't know, and he asks her how she knows this? Lexie says that she overheard Marlena and Hope talking, and John confirmed it. She says that Bo just found out last night, that is what the uproar was about. Abe then wonders why Barb is blackmailing her instead of Bo and Hope? Lexie says she was trying to protect their friends. Abe is not happy and wants to arrest Glen and Barb for blackmail, but Lexie says he can't do that. Abe says blackmail is a crime, but Lexie says that Bo and Hope's marriage is at stake, and she thinks that she can convince Barb to stop blackmailing her if she lets them know he was going to arrest them. Abe agrees to look the other way, for now, for Bo and Hope. Abe appologizes to Lexie for accusing her of lying, and Lexie says she's sorry too.

Bo breaks away from Roman and tells him to get his damn hands off him! Roman threatens to take Bo off duty if they don't talk, so Bo agrees to talk, only so he doesn't have to go home. Bo tells Roman that Hope lied to him, she played him for a damn fool. Bo says he's thinking about leaving Hope, and explains that Hope lied to him and he doesn't know if he can get through this. Roman thinks he can, because Hope loves him and their children. Sami shows up to talk to Roman, but Roman says he can't talk now. Bo says he can, and leaves them to talk. Sami does everything she can to get her dad to notice her engagement ring, and he pretends to be clueless. He eventually congradulates her when he sees that she is becoming frustrated.

Austin asks Nicole what his mother has to do with this? Nicole tells him that Kate is working for Basic Black now. Nicole switches the subject and asks when he was going to tell her that he and Sami were engaged? Austin says she knew he was buying the ring for Sami. Nicole says she still would have liked to have heard it from him rather than having to read about it. Austin says he didn't thinks she'd care.

Typed after I saw the show, so shorter than normal.
At the station, Sami talks to Roman about the wedding she wants. Roman tells her that she needs to invite Kate, but Sami refuses. Roman says like it or not Kate is family. Sami says Kate will never be family. Roman tells Sami that she has done some pretty horrible things, but she has changed, so shouldn't they give Kate the chance to change? Sami says she will never forgive Kate for the things she did to her!

At Titan, Nicole talks to Austin about the mascara account. Austin says they have a problem, the inventor of the mascara they want to buy happens to have the hots for Kate. Nicole says this could ruin everything, and she orders Austin to keep his mother from winning this account. Austin leaves to see his mother, and Sami shows up to see Austin. Nicole goats Sami, trying to get a fight started, but Sami says this job means a lot to Austin, so she's not going to blow it for him by getting into a fight with his boss.

Meanwhile, Kate gets a call from John, who tells her that if she can get Basic Black the Perma-Lash account, she has the job. Kate is thrilled, and calls the guy up to arrange a busines lunch. Later, Austin shows up and tries to get Kate to come to his wedding. She refuses, and he tells her that she needs to start acting like a mother to him and a grandma to Will. Kate wants to be part of Will's life, but refuses to have anything to do with Sami, or give him her blessing to marry her. Austin says he doesn't need her blessing.

At the Black's, Brady catches Marlena and John discussing what to do about the kids. Brady lets them know that he knows about JT, and Chloe does to, and very soon Belle will end up finding out. Brady is furious with his father for screwing Hope and screwing up the small chance they all had of being the perfect family. John tells Brady that he doesn't understand what is really going on here, he just hopes he can forgive him for what he's done. They discuss how to tell Belle, and BRady tells them she will need all of them to help her through this, and that it is better she hear it from them than someone else. Marlena says that Brady is right, so John picks up the phone.

At Bo and Hope's, Bo returns home and checks on JT, but ignores Hope. When he finally talks to Hope, he warns her that he's libel to say hurtful things to her. She says that is better than his silence. Bo does hurt her, over and over again. He tells her that he can never trust her again, and he's very close to hating her. He also says it makes him sick to think that she remembers what it was like to make love to John, to conceive JT. He's also sick of her blaming everything on Princess Gina. Hope finally gets tired of Bo's abuse, and throws what he did with Billie in his face. Hope says that was all him, no split personalities, and when things didn't work out, she forgave him and took him back! JT begins crying, and Hope says she's going to go check on him, and she hopes her husband is her when she returns. While she's gone, John calls Bo and he says they need to talk. Bo says when he is ready to talk, if that is ever, he will let him no. Bo hangs the phone up, wrips it out of the wall, and throws it across the room.
