Marlena offers to get something from the hospital to help Susan sleep, but she says she doesn't want anything. John says that Stefano needs to be notified and Marlena offers to do it. Marlena calls Stefano, who is hoping it is Kristen. Marlena asks Stefano to come over to the Blake House right away. Stefano agrees and he wonders what Kristen has done now. Out by the pool, Abe asks Roman to head up this investigation and Roman accepts. Abe says there are a lot of questions to be answered, but Roman believes she was murdered. Stefano shows up and asks Marlena if Kristen has been arrested. Marlena says she hasn't been arrested, she's dead. Stefano doesn't believe it's true, but Marlena tells him it is. Stefano storms out of the house and goes out to the pool. Susan comes out of the bathroom and Marlena offers to take her back to the penthouse. Roman tells Abe that something is wrong and he believes that Susan isn't telling them everything that she knows.
Stefano goes back to his hideout and puts on some opera music and cries.
Sami is hugging a picture of Austin and saying how she has to get Austin back. Lucas comes into the room and tells her that she never had him to begin with.

Over at the Blake House, Roman and Abe are waiting for the coroner's report. Abe wishes they had someone to question, someone who saw Kristen. Roman says he has a gut feeling that Susan saw Kristen last night. Roman also says that he finds it odd that Susan would leave Salem not knowing Sister Mary was safe, unless she already knew she was safe.

Later, Abe gets word that the letter opener was covered with Susan's fingerprints.

The phone suddenly rings and it's Susan. Edmund takes the phone and asks her when she's coming back. Susan says she doesn't know because Kristen is dead. Susan asks about Elvis and Edmund tells her that he is fine. Edmund suggests that he come to Salem, but Susan says that she thinks she'll be returning to Salem really soon. Susan says she doesn't want to run up the phone bill and she hangs up quickly. Edmund tells his mum that there is something wrong with Susan. Violet tells Edmund to call Susan back, so begins to.

They talk and Roman tells John and Marlena that they have new evidence which places Susan at the scene of the crime. Marlena and John don't think that Susan could have killed Kristen and Abe says they aren't accusing her of anything. As they talk, Susan stands at the top of the stairs and listens in on them.

Franco goes to the Kiriakis Mansion to see Sami, but he finds Austin instead. Austin tells him that Sami is gone and he's not sorry. They begin to argue about Sami and Franco says that Sami is insecure and doesn't know what real love is.

Franco asks Austin to tell Sami he stopped by and will return again later. Austin talks to Will and hopes that Sami will find the happiness she deserves, even if it is with Franco.

Mike tells Carrie that he's thinking about applying for the position of chief of staff at the hospital. However, Mike thinks he may not have a chance against some of the other applicants. Carrie tells Mike to go for it, so he decides to go for it.
Sami is also in Salem Place and trying to think of a way to undermine Austin's confidence in Carrie. Franco shows up and tells Sami to forget whatever she is thinking.

Jonsey then tells Vivian that they are not going back to Salem, not now and not ever.
Carrie & Mike
Carrie is really excited about Mikeís applying for the Chief of Staff position. And sheís positive the board will approve him. Mike warns her there are other applicants and it may all be a waste of time. (yeah, right!) She continues on with how his grandfather had so much to do with the hospital and if he doesnít try, heíll never know if he could have pulled it off! He agrees to try. She hugs him in happiness. He realizes he needs to go clothes shopping. She asks flannel plaid shirts and he said, yeah. She says NO, if you want to be a serious player, you have to dress like one. He groans and asks if he has to go to the responsible adult store to get serious player shirts and she nods and says ties too. She then decides she doesnít trust him and decides to go along with him.
In a menís clothing store, with a new, faster version of HOW DO I LIVE (Trisha Yearwood?) playing, Carrie hands Mike different shirts, ties and a grey suit jacket to hold up to see how they look. Gee, I had to watch it a few times (what Iíll do for you guys, hehe) to catch all that goes on. Mike doesnít try on any of the clothes being heís in his sweatshirt (guess they want to bowl us over when he wears them). She takes away a dark sport coat and hands him a lighter grey one. She hands him a yellow shirt and she takes away the tie he picked and holds up a red tie instead. We donít hear them as the montage is playing, but he tells her NO to the red tie. She goes to put it away, but changes her mind and sneaks it under the other clothes (after making sure the cashier sees it), while Mikeís pulling out his credit card. They walk out of the store arm in arm and laughing with each other. Itís a cute skit where they both get into it and you can tell theyíre having fun doing it. Mike tells Carrie he wished heíd gone back to get his MBA as being hospital chief of staff you really need to know the business part of it. Other applicants have PR firms doing their resume highlighting their strengths. Carrie tells him he can have that too. PR is what she does and sheíll help him. He gives her a loving look. He appreciates her offer, but having a PR person is pretentious. In Tomís time it might have been she said, but after hearing others are doing it, itís not..so he said sheís hired.
Eric & Austin
Eric orders an espresso and lunch at Java Cafť and finds thereís a new waitress there. Heís still being followed by a mysterious person. He gets a copy of the Salem Tribune to have while eating and sees that Kristen is dead. Eric and the waitress discuss Kristenís picture. She said Kristen was always so moody when she came there. Eric asks the waitress her name and she says Nicole. Austin joins Eric (calls him buddy boy?) and they also discuss Kristen. Austin asks Eric if he has any idea who killed Kristen and Eric said the suspect list must be a mile long (no kidding!). Austin tells Eric that he and Carrie are considering a baby, but donít go rushing out to buy any baby gifts as it wonít be for a while. They talk about what theyíd like to be in life. Eric said he has no direction. First he wants to be an astronaut, a professional pitcher, a cop like his dad, or a cattle rancher. Austin said he was a musician, a professional fighter and now a corporate executive, go figure (yeah, weíre still trying to figure that out too Austin!). Barely able to speak (literally), Austin tells Eric about his music background and how he got into boxing again for the money. Eric says Sami wrote and told him about that and he called Carrie while she was recovering. Eric asks if Austin is ok with being a corp. executive and he said itís ok, not what he thought it was though. As long as heís got Carrie, life is good.
Lexie uses the payphone to see if Celeste has checked into the spa yet only to learn she hasnít. (poor Celeste, where ARE you?) She calls Abe and tells him sheís worried that Celeste still hadnít gotten to the spa yet. Abe tells Lexie that the coroner hasnít released Kristenís body to Stephano yet.
At his home, Stephano has been up all night. Bart is concerned and tells him he should get some rest. He tells Stephano at least he gave Peter the antidote for the jungle disease (jungle madness Bart, get with the program!). Stephano worries that heíll screw up his chances with Lexie if she finds out what happened to Celeste. AHA, we see Celeste. She wakes up in the snow (in the park?) sleeping on some newspapers. She sees blood on the newspaper and and realizes itís her own blood (forehead is cut) and wonders WHATíS happening to her. Stephano ponders what happened with Kristen. Did the baby drive her over the edge? Kristen always trusted him to get her out of every situation, but he says he canít rescue her from death. Bart calls for Stephano and he yells I TOLD YOU, but then Bart leads Lexie into the room. She came to offer her condolenses about Kristen. She didnít like some of the things Kristen had done recently, but she like the old Kristen. He tells her it means a lot to him for her to come at a time like this and she takes his hand. Stephano asks Lexie how Celeste is doing and she said she hasnít talked to her. Sheís worried as the last time she saw Celeste she wasnít feeling well, maybe just tired. Lexie asks if he knows something about Celeste. He tells her he hadnít seen her in a while (liar) as she doesnít want anything to do with him. He then said that John and Marlena are doing their best to alienate his family from him. Although heís lost Peter and Kristen, heís happy he still has her, sheís a good person. She tells him to stop his obsession about control and she knows that deep inside of him thereís some goodness. He says thatís sweet, sheís one of the few people that believes that. If she ever learns that he hurt someone she cares about, sheíll never have anything to do with him again and he tells her he understands. He knows he has to find Celeste before Lexie finds out what happened to her.
Back at the cop shop, Edmond introduces himself and then Susan introduces him to Abe, John, and Marlena. He remembers Susan telling him she was just a teeny weeny bit in love with John Black still and protectly puts his arm around Susan. As he asks if Susan shouldnít have a solicitor there while they question Susan, Marlena tells him sheís not a suspect, so itís not required. Edmond says he would like a moment alone with Susan then and they all have this amazed look on their face (like how did Susan catch this nice looking smart person??)
At the convent we see Sister Mary praying. Another nun brings her some tea. Sheís worried about Susan as she hasnít heard from her. Celeste has visions of Susan and Kristen again yelling for the baby and her sister. She has strong feelings of dread and decides to go home. We see her walking through Salem Place holding her head as Eric and Austin are talking. She shows up at the convent and asks Sister Mary for help.
Ironically enough, Edmond asks Susan if her sister is ok and Susan realizes she hasnít called her sissy to find out. Marlena offers to do it on her way out of the office when they leave Edmond and Susan alone. Edmond tells Susan how worried he is about her. As soon as the door is closed and theyíre alone, Susan admits it was a lie and she did see Kristen the night before. He tells her she should tell the truth and wished she had waited for him before coming to America. He had promised to protect her from that mean, mean, mean woman, didnít he? She nods and agrees he did, but she had to get back to save her sister though and he understands, he knows what a good woman she is. Thatís why he lied to the man in the village Kristen and her vampire father had sent to look for her. He admits he had driven past her cottage several times a night after that to make sure she was safe. She asks if he really did that and he said heíd do anything to protect her and they hug. Edmond gives her some tea and they run the scenes of their picnic together that arenít corny. He tells her mum knew about his plane all along. The morale of the story was itís better to just tell the truth and he encourages her to do so as he knows sheís guilty of nothing. Susan doesnít say much during this conversation and just watches and listens (is that a clue to us?). He goes to bring the inspector back in so she can tell him the truth and we see Susanís face with her eyes bouncing all around in her nervous style. Roman starts interrogating Susan and she finally admits she was at the Blake house, but Kristen was alive when she left there, honest! She tells them about having to come protect her sister and leaving the baby in England with Violet. Edmond tells them thatís his mum and Marlena said yes, sheís spoken with her. Susan says she could never hurt anyone. She says that Kristen asked her where the baby was when she got to the house and how Kristen was mad at first, but then was calm and asked her into the living room. Kristen offered her a drink, but she took a can of soda knowing that was one thing she couldnít drug. She started getting woozy and realized Kristen had drugged the can of soda, just like when she had done it before. She was doing everything she could to get her willpower to overcome the drugs to stop Kristen from doing anything. Roman asks what happened next. She went out to the terrace with the letter opener they found and threatened Kristen with it. They fought a little bit and the letter opener went flying. She got scared and ran to her car and drove away as fast as she could straight to the airport, called them about her sister and wanted to go home to Edmond. Watching her, she asks them if they think she killed Kristen and the credits rollÖ.
