At the Kiriakis Mansion, Nicole was about to spike her orange juice when Brandon comes in. He accuses her of getting a late start drinking, so she makes him taste it to prove that there is no booze in it. Lucas returns from the fund raiser meeting at Will's preschool and he tells Nicole that he's volunteered her to help with the fund raiser in the spring. Sami shows up and scolds Lucas for schmozing the fund raising committee into letting him chair the event. She warns Lucas that come spring, he won't even have custody of Will. Lucas tells her that will never happen because she has the credibility of Beavis and Butthead. He says he could kick her out of this house and forbid her from seeing Will, but he won't. However, if she sues for soul custody, he will match every dirty trick of hers with one of his own, and she will lose. Sami leaves, as does Brandon, and Nicole wishes Lucas wouldn't let Sami put him in such a foul mood. Lucas says that isn't the only reason he is in a bad mood, he heard about her and Eric's photo shoot. Nicole says it was nothing, she was only helping a friend. Lucas thinks it must have been more than just a friend helping a friend because she didn't tell him about it. Nicole tells her husband that if he really wants to know the truth, she'll give him every gory detail. Nicole tells him about Eric's interview and that the people at the job wanted to see sexier photos, so she posed in lingerie for him. She tells him that it got so intense, she stripped down to nothing, and the two of them made love three times! She asks if he needs anymore details? Lucas knows she is lying and wants to know why. Nicole says it is what he suspects and she hates that he doesn't trust her. She tells him that she married him, not Eric, so he shouldn't be jealous or suspicious of her. She tells Lucas that Eric has moved on with Greta, just like she has moved on with him. Lucas says he has been a jerk and apologizes. Lucas asks to make it up to her somehow. Nicole tells Lucas that she wants him to prove she trusts her and is not jealous of Eric by offering Eric his job back. Lucas isn't so sure and thinks perhaps Eric could go to Paris and work with Billie, and Greta could go with him. Nicole thinks he doesn't trust her, so she storms out of the room screaming that she's going to pack her bags. Lucas runs after her begging her not to.

Brandon finds Sami hanging out in the park dreaming of the day Lucas is no longer part of her life. She tells him that she and Austin will have a new beginning. She tells him that she and Carrie have forgiven one another, and Carrie is happy with Mike and that he's even given her a ring. Brandon asks her where her ring is? Sami says it is to soon for that. Brandon asks her if they have slept together yet? Sami becomes angry and tells him that is none of his business! Brandon gives Sami a little unwanted advice. He tells her that Austin will never marry her as long as they are shacking up, so she should move out if she hopes to have a real relationship with Austin. Sami refuses to move out and give up being close to Will, so Brandon says Austin should move out and court her. Sami asks Brandon why he's being so negative? Brandon says he's only being realistic, and she should to. He tells her that Austin is on the rebound and is getting everything what he wants from her, except sex, but he'll probably be getting that soon to. Sami tells Brandon to get a life and stay out of hers!

Eric and Greta meet in Salem Place and Eric tells Greta that he didn't get the job in New York. Greta doesn't understand, the photo shoot with Nicole was very sexy. Eric begins feeling guilty about the shoot and tells Greta that he has to tell her something about the photo shoot. However, he chickens out and apologizes for making her feel very uncomfortable during the shoot and he doesn't blame her for leaving. Greta is surprised that he didn't get the job. Eric is too, but he says that there will be other jobs and he plans on passing his work around to some agencies. Greta looks at his work, especially a photo of Nicole, and she is wowed by Nicole's sophistication and worldliness look. Eric tells Greta that people aren't always as they seem, and he tells Greta that what he and Nicole had is over. He gives her a little kiss, which embarrasses her. She tells him that she has to go, but she will see him later.

Gina says that Bo loves her so much, but Lily says that Bo loves Hope, not her. Lily warns Gina that she is playing a very serious game and could find herself locked up in a federal prison for a very serious crime for a long time. Gina says that this is not a game she is playing, she is taking back the years Stefano stole from her. Lily tells Gina that Bo has loved Hope all his life, he will know she's not Hope, especially once they become intimate. Gina says that she knows Hope as well as she knows herself, and she is most certain that Bo will never know the difference. There is a knock at the door, it is Greta coming to see "Hope." Gina, who was smoking, makes Lily hold her cigarette and pretend she was the one who was smoking. Lily leaves, and Gina asks Greta what has brought her here? Greta tells "Hope" that she needs her help with something. Greta asks her to teach her to be sexy and alluring. Gina tells her that she is a beautiful young woman, both inside and outside. Greta tells "Hope" that she when she compares herself to her mother she comes up short, and she thinks she'd be a disappointment to her mother. Gina tells her that is not true, her mother loved her very much. Greta says during the last years of her life they didn't communicate very much because of her depressions. Gina tells her to focus on her earlier memories of her mother, like the time she was invited out on her first date. Greta remembers that she was invited to a school dance by Nathan.

Gina told her that she is as beautiful on the inside as she is on the outside. Greta tells "Hope" that she's right, her mother was always there for her. Gina tells Greta that her mother loved her with all of her heart, she has no doubt about that. Greta asks "Hope" how she knew about her first official date? Gina says that all girls share the news of their first date with their mother, so she just assumed. Greta remembers another situation from her past when she had a bad day at school and her mother comforted her. Greta told her mom that the teacher asked everyone what they wanted to be when they grew up, and when she said happy, everyone laughed at her. Gina told her that was a wonderful thing to wish for. She told her daughter that she will be happy when she grows up and will find a man who is right for her. BAck in the present, Gina asks Greta if Eric is the right man for her? Greta says maybe, but she has insecurities about his feelings for Nicole and whether he'll ever get over her. She says that she saw what happened to her mother after she lost John, she never got over him and died of a broken heart. Gina blurts out "that is not true!" She quickly changes the topic and tells her that this talk is upsetting her, and tells Greta to go see Eric and talk to him and make him see that he is the man for her. Greta thanks "Hope" for making her feel better. "Hope" suggests they both go on a shopping spree, and Greta accepts this invitation.

Kurt's phone rings again, and it is Gina. She is furious with Kurt for hanging up on her and she knows something is wrong with Hope. Kurt tells her that Hope is secure, just a little difficult to manage. Gina tells Kurt that he better keep Hope in that castle because from this day forward her identity belongs to her! Kurt understands his orders, and Gina hangs up on him. Hope asks Kurt if that was his boss again? Kurt says it doesn't matter, but Hope says it matters to her. She says she has had it with him keeping things from her, she wants to know what is going on, why are the police chasing them. Hope begs Kurt to help her. Suddenly, Hope remembers running through the same swamp earlier from Kurt, and having him grab her viscously. She looks at Kurt and tells him that she was ruining from him! Kurt says she did run from him, but it was after they lost their daughter and she was very upset. Hope remembers that it was more than running, she was hiding from both Kurt and the police. She tells Kurt that something more happened, she was trying to escape from someone. Suddenly, Hope bolts. Kurt grabs her and tells her to stop fighting her because the police are after her. Hope says it is for something she didn't do, but Kurt says they can't prove that to the police right now. He tells her that he is all she has, so she has to stay with him. Hope thinks that perhaps her mind is playing tricks on her, and she believes that he is all she has. She asks him to hold her, so he does. He tells her that he'll always be here for her, her past doesn't matter because he can give her a whole new life with him.

Back in Salem at the Salem Inn, Gina is sitting on her couch reading her copy of Hope's life, the manuscript version. There is a knock at the door, so she hides the book and blows some air freshener around to cover up the smoke. When she answers the door, Greta tells her mother that the game is over! The package she received earlier where chocolates from Paris, the type her mother sent to her, and she knows "Hope" sent them to her. Greta tells "Hope" that she doesn't need her pretending to be her mother and using Gina comments to make her feel better about herself. Greta accuses "Hope" of holding onto her mother's memories and using them to mess with her mind. Gina tells Greta that she's only trying to help her and fill the void in her life. Greta tells "Hope" that she can't fill it, but Gina says she is wrong and that there is something she's been trying to tell her for a long time. Greta doesn't want to hear anything "Hope" has to say to her. Gina tells Greta to trust her, she wants to help her. Greta tells "Hope" that right now she feels alone, scared, aching for her mother. Greta tells "Hope" that she used to remember sitting in the dark praying her mom would come to her in the Bayou, but she never did. However, she says her mother did come to her in France, but it was just a dream. Gina tells Greta that her dream is about to come true. Greta asks "Hope" what she is saying? Gina tells Greta that her dream of her mother's return is no longer a dream, her mother has come back to her. Greta tells "Hope" that she is not her mother, she may have her mother's thoughts and memories, but not her heart and soul. Gina tells Greta a story about when they first moved to France and how she had such a hard time adjusting. Greta says this is just another story, so Gina asks Greta to look inside of her and see who she is. Gina tells her that all she ever meant to do is love her, not hurt her. Gina's phone rings, so she answers it. It is Bo calling to make sure his "Fancyface" is okay. Gina tells him that she's fine, she was just sleeping when the phone rang. He tells her to go back to bed and that he loves her. Greta asks "Hope" why she lied to Bo? Gina tells her that she didn't want him calling back and disturbing them, because tonight will be the night that changes both of their lives forever. Greta asks how their lives will change? Gina tells her that she knows, she's just to afraid to accept it. Greta says this isn't possible, but Gina says it is, and calls her "Mon petit choux." Greta cries, and Gina tells her that she never stopped loving her. Greta cries out "Mother?" Gina nods and wipes away Greta's tears.
