Lexie is desperate to flee Salem with Isaac and nothing Abe says can persuade her otherwise. Rolf steps in and informs Lexie that leaving the country would make things worse, it's better to stay and tie Bo and Hope up in court for years.

Hope is in denial about the possibility of a baby switch. Bo admits that he's suspected this all along, but JT's biological parents (John and Hope) won't hear of it. Tensions run high as John is forced to defer to Bo and let him handle Cameron. Roman informs them that they have 48 hours to comply with the court ordered DNA test. Roman and Cameron leave and Bo puts in a call to Mickey Horton. John stuns Marlena and Bo by revealing that he performed his own test on JT that proved he was JT's father. Bo questions how John's test can say one thing and Glen's another. He strongly suspects Stefano's involvement in all this. John tries to reassure a badly shaken Hope.
Lexie lays it on the line for Abe: either he's with her or against her. Abe assures Lexie that he'll do whatever he (legally) can for his family. Abe is torn between his love for his family and his duty to his job/friends. Rolf details their court case, stressing the need to depict John as negligent (for giving up his son), Hope as a liar (for keeping the truth from Bo), and Bo as uncaring. Lexie is all for it, but Abe is unsure.
Sami and Austin take Will to the Brady Pub for ice cream where Caroline gushes over Sami's ring. Austin isn't pleased when Sami talks about planning the wedding and admits that he'll defer all party planning to her. Sami sees Shawn and Belle across the room and goes to speak with her sister. Austin reveals to Caroline that he wishes that Sami and Kate would make peace before the wedding.

Belle understands and says that the only thing that matters is being together. Sami interrupts them and Belle congratulates her sister on her engagement. She's thrilled when Sami asks her to be in the wedding. Belle wonders if Carrie will be invited and Sami dodges by saying that the guest lists are far from being final.
When Sami returns to Austin, he brings up the subject of his mother. Sami feeds him the line about the guest lists not being final, but it's obvious that she has no intention of calling a cease fire with Kate
