January 4
John and Greta meet up at the hospital. Greta just met with Dr. Renault, who told her that he can remove her scars. Greta tells John that they shouldn't worry about her and asks what he and MArlena are going to do. John tells Greta about his surprise for Marlena. Marlena shows up and Greta tells Marlena how John has a surprise for her. Marlena asks Greta how she feels about having surgery and Greta says she is nervous, but she has her friends to support her. John wishes Greta a happy New Year and John and Marlena leave.

John leads Marlena to his plane and Marlena asks if she is going to New Orleans. John tells her good guess, she's right! John tells her that he has many surprises for her tonight. John presents her with bells for her charm bracelet. John asks her what they make her think of and Marlena says ringing in the Belle, and spending time with the man she loves. John tells her that he has a question for her, will she marry him? MArlena tells him anytime anywhere. John says he just wanted to make sure he asked her at midnight so he could get an answer this year. Marlena promises they will marry this year. John tells Marlena that he wants her to plan the perfect wedding and they kiss.

Greta says this isn't how she was hoping to spend New Years Eve and then daydreams about John. Greta's scars are gone and John tells her that her mom would be so proud of her. John tells her it is time for her to find the man of her dreams and he wants her to be happy because they are family. John says before her dance card fills up he'd like the first dance, so the two dance. Greta wonders if she could have that type of life.

Craig and Nancy are discussing how long Mike and Carrie have been in Mike's office. In his office, Mike tells Carrie that he is in love with her and he knows she loves him too. Carrie says she doesn't know what to say and Mike tells her that she doesn't have to say anything. Mike tells her that he knows she is committed to Austin and he respects that, but he can't keep denying his feelings. Carrie says she doesn't want to stop him from having a relationship with someone else. Mike tells her she is not to blame. Carrie tells Mike that she has to tell him how she really feels. Carrie says she can't back out on her commitment to Austin. Mike tells her that he didn't expect her to and suggests she go be with Austin to ring in the new year. Carrie agrees and says goodbye to Mike. However, she stops at the door and tells him a gift was at his door. She tells him good night again and they wish each other a happy new year, and share a tiny peck on the cheek. Carrie leaves and Mike tells himself that was a stupid thing to do. Mike opens the gift, which are his favorite cookies and a note from Ali saying she's happy to be in his life as his special friend. Ali walks in and asks Mike if he feels like celebrating. Mike says he just has too much work to do, but thanks her for thinking of him. ALi gives Mike a kiss and just says "until later." Ali leaves and Mike daydreams about spending New Years, and the rest of his life, with Carrie. Later, Mike runs into ALi right as New Years rings in and she says it's fate that they are together and kisses him.

At the penthouse, Austin asks Sami what she thinks Carrie and Mike's relationship is. Austin asks her if something is going on between Mike and his wife. Sami says that she just doesn't want to see him get hurt. Austin asks if Carrie is going to hurt him and Sami says she doesn't know, all she knows is that he and Carrie are always arguing, mostly about her. Austin says Carrie is always running to Mike for comfort and if she knows something then he deserves to know. He asks Sami point blank if Carrie is in love with Mike. Sami says that maybe Carrie has feelings for Mike that she can't admit. Austin says he has to know be with Carrie tonight and leaves, but wishes her a happy New Year. After Austin leaves, Sami says Carrie will answer to her if she hurts Austin.

Carrie goes home and asks Austin if he is here, but he doesn't answer, so she thinks he's with Sami. Carrie finds a note from Austin and heads to the roof, where Austin has a huge celebration planned for them. Austin tells Carrie that he loves her and all he wants to do is be with her tonight, and every New Years after. Austin and Carrie celebrate New Years together with a kiss, but Carrie can't help but remember kissing Mike. She snaps back and tells Austin that this New Years will bring them closer. Austin says it already has and they kiss again. Sami is alone at the penthouse and toasts to getting everything she wants this year.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Roman has set up a little demonstration for Lucas' benefit. There is a Franco dummy on the floor and a Sami dummy as well, with a gun in her hand. Roman asks Lucas if this brings back any memories and if he'd like to tell him what really happened the night Franco was murdered. Roman tells Lucas about his theory of how he shot Franco and framed Sami, with Kate's help. Roman tells Lucas that if he confesses now, he will save himself a lot of heartache. He says if he killed Franco in self-defense, than the jury will be sympathetic, but if he keeps lying, he will go to jail for good. Roman tells Lucas that he can't let Sami go to prison for life, or possibly be executed, for something she didn't do. Lucas says he does have something to tell him when Nicole screams. Nicole "falls" down the stairs and Lucas rushes to her. Nicole whispers to him not to say anything because it's a trap. Nicole says she just tripped, but has to go. Lucas walks her out, but before leaving tells Roman he won't let him frame him for Sami's crimes. Lucas and Nicole leave and Billie shows up and asks what is going on. Roman damns Lucas and says he was just about to tell him the truth. Billie tells Roman to relax and they should celebrate New Years together. Billie serves champagne and they toast the New Year together.

At Nicole's place, Eric is arranging a surprise for Nicole. When Nicole returns home she sees that Eric has decorated the place and he gives her a dress. She says she doesn't deserve this, but then quickly says she meant she can't believe he is being so nice to her. Nicole leaves to change and Eric calls his dad and learns Lucas didn't confess, but Roman doesn't tell him about his suspicions concerning Nicole. Nicole returns in her dress and she and Eric kiss. However, Nicole can't forget Lucas telling her that if she sticks with him he'll see to it that she gets it all. At the Kiriakis Mansion, Lucas says his resolution is to be with Nicole.

Hope confides in Lilly that Shawn D. has been kidnapped. Lilly doesn't understand who would do this and Hope says Bo believes Stefano did it, and she agrees. Lilly says Stefano would never kidnap a child! Hope asks Lilly why she would say something like that, is there something she is keeping from her about Stefano. Lilly says that she knew Stefano as Rudlopho and he was a very caring man, not the monster she describes. Hope says that Stefano is a monster and he's kidnapped Shawn D. to distract her from finding the truth about her past. Lilly learns that the kidnappers want 2 million dollars and she offers to pay it. Hope thanks her and says she prays this will be over soon. Hope tells Lilly about her memories of Stefano and wonders if they were intimate. Lilly says she doesn't know, but that Gina and Stefano were always happy to see each other and shared secret smiles. Hope wonders if Gina was in love with Rudlopho and if he was the man she always spoke of that was in her heart.

Bo confronts Stefano at the townhouse and demands to know where his son is. Stefano tells Bo that he has no idea what he is talking about. Bo tells Stefano that he knows he arranged Shawn D's kidnapping and if he doesn't talk, he's a dead man. Stefano says he had nothing to do with it and even offers to pay the ransom, but Bo says he doesn't want his money. Stefano says he has no reason to kidnap Shawn D, but Bo accuses him of trying to keep Hope from remembering the truth. Stefano reminds Bo that he saved Hope's life. Stefano says nobody knows like he does what it is like to lose a son. Bo asks Stefano "then how could you take my son from his family?" Stefano says he did not do this. Bo says that he will find his son and he will make sure he never terrorizes his family again. Stefano offers Bo his help and Bo simply asks Stefano to let Shawn D. come home unharmed. Bo leaves and warns Vivian that she could be her husband's next victim. Vivian goes into the living room and hears Stefano on the phone telling the kidnappers that he's paying them to do a job and not get caught. Vivian asks what is going on and Stefano says he was talking to his broker. Vivian asks why Bo was so upset and Stefano tells her that Bo won't let Hope's missing years go. Stefano tells Vivian he doesn't want Bo to celebrate their celebration and he produces a gift for Vivian, a diamond bracelet. Stefano proposes a toast to Vivian, who is picking up New Year's music on her tooth.

Bo returns to the Horton house and tells Hope that Stefano pretended to know nothing. Hope tells Bo that Lilly will pay the 2 million dollars and Bo says no, but she says she won't take no for an answer. Lilly leaves to get the wire transfer and Bo promises Hope that they will find Shawn D. and nail Stefano for it. Hope and Bo wait for the kidnappers to call and Bo tells Hope that everything will be ok.

January 5
Sorry this is so late, it was a loooooooooooong day
Austin an Carrie celebrate the New Year on their rooftop. Carrie thanks Austin for the wonderful surprise, but Austin says he has another. He gives her an orchid and tells her it reminded him of her, precious and delicate. Carrie remembers the night they first got back together on this rooftop. Ausin says he's sorry for some of the things he said to her earlier, but Carrie tells him it wasn't his fault. Austin tells Carrie they should agree to communicate openly and honestly with one another this year and not let anything or anyone come between them again. They dance and tell one another that they love each other. Austin says their love will just keep growing. Later, Carrie and Austin begin to undress each other by a fire Austin has built and they make love.

Roman returns to the penthouse and tells Sami that Lucas did not confess, and he doesn't think they can prove Lucas killed Franco. Sami asks her dad what kept Lucas from confessing and Roman doesn't tell her about Nicole, he just says Lucas must have pulled it together just in time. Sami goes to check on Will and Roman says he hopes Nicole hasn't betrayed Sami, for both her and Eric's sake. Roman gives Eric a call about Nicole and then later Roman tells Sami it looks like they are back to square one because Lucas is on to them now. Sami asks her dad not to give up, but Roman says he's done all he can, it's up to her now. He tells her that she has to testify. Sami says she can't do that, but Roman says it's her only choice. Sami agrees to take the stand.

At Nicole's place, Eric and Nicole are kissing pretty intensely. Eric tells Nicole that he's sorry he wasted so much time with her and wants nothing to get in the way of their relationship again because he wants them to trust each other. Nicole remembers what she did for Lucas earlier and tells Eric that he can trust her, she promises. Eric tells Nicole that he wants her so bad and then he carries her to the couch. However, a phone call from Roman interrupts them. Eric asks his dad what is wrong and Roman says he wanted to check on Nicole because she fell down the stairs at the Kiriakis place. Eric had no idea and Roman tells Eric he had a feeling she wouldn't mention it to him. Roman tells Eric that he doesn't think he can trust Nicole and asks if he told her about their suspicions about Lucas. Eric says he did and Roman tells Eric that he think Nicole tipped Lucas off about their trap. Eric thanks his dad for the call and says goodbye. Eric sits down and asks Nicole what she told Lucas tonight. Nicole plays innocent and Eric asks her if she told Lucas Sami had her memory back and that they were trying to prove Lucas killed Franco. Nicole is insulted and says he should leave if he doesn't trust her. Eric says he's sorry and says he trusts her, he just had to know. Nicole says she knew his dad didn't like her, but she didn't know how much. Eric says his dad just wants Lucas to confess. Nicole says perhaps Lucas is innocent, perhaps he has nothing to confess to. Eric just tells her that he's sorry he doubted her and they hug.

Kate returns to see Victor and tells him how much she misses him and needs him. Lucas shows up and tells his mom that Roman payed a visit to him tonight and almost got him to confess. Lucas tells his mom that it was Nicole who saved him by telling him that Roman was trying to trap him. Kate asks how Nicole knew and she says maybe Eric told her. Kate says that Roman broke their deal, so she's going to have Sami arrested for attempted murder and will have Roman thrown off the force. Lucas tells his mom he told her from the start that he wanted to tell the truth, but Kate says it's too late now. Victor eventually yells at them to stop fighting. Victor tells them that they have to play it cool, if they go after Roman they will only make things worse. Victor says Roman will start pushing back if she pushes him and he will eventually learn the truth. Victor tells her Roman only has an unprovable theory and only she can give him a way to prove it. Kate tells him that he is right. Victor also tells them that if they need to, they can use the fact that Sami tried to kill them and Roman bargained with them not to call the police.

Stefano tells Rolfe that he knew he could find a cure for Vivian, his serum is working! Rolfe tells Stefano that the drug is experimental, so he doesn't know how long it will last. Rolfe tells Stefano that the lunar eclipse will take place any day now and that the satellite will be in position to turn Hope back into Gina. Stefano says Gina will be his permanently soon, and Bo will have lost Hope permanently.

The female kidnapper take Shawn D. to a boat and Shawn D. attempts to escape, but is caught and the male kidnapper tells him he just made a huge mistake. However, the female kidnapper saves Shawn D from the male, who was about to kill him, or at least do permanent harm to him. Stefano calls the kidnappers and gives them more instructions, which they are to follow to the letter.

Bo and Hope are still waiting for the kidnappers to call. Hope is agitated and says she needs to know Shawn D. is okay, she needs to hear his voice. Bo tells her that he's sure Shawn D. is okay and they will bring him home. Lilly arrives with the money and the kidnappers call Bo and Hope. Bo speaks with Shawn D, who tells his dad that if he doesn't do what the kidnapper say, they'll kill him. The kidnappers tell them that they will be in touch again and tell them where to drop off the money, and if they double-cross them, they'll never see their kid again.

The kidnappers talk about their plan. The female is afraid their boss will learn that they are asking for two million instead of one. The male says that everything will work out and they'll be long gone with the money before anyone is the wiser, as long as the kids parents play along.

Bo gets another call where to drop the money, but this call is a recording from Stefano, which is a trick to throw Bo off track. Abe traces the call and it is from a voice service downtown. Abe says they better play Stefano's game. Bo says he will follow the instructions and hopefully when he returns he'll have Shawn Douglas. Hope wants to go, but Bo tells her she must stay behind to see if the kidnappers call back. Hope tells Lilly she is afraid what Stefano might do to Shawn D, but Lilly says Stefano would never kill anyone. Lilly asks Hope if she thinks Stefano is capable of murder and Hope says she just doesn't know how far Stefano would go to get what he wants, which makes the situation even more terrifying.

Back at the townhouse, Rolfe tells Stefano that the satellite is nearly in position. Stefano laughs and says his ultimate plan is about to go into effect, he will have Gina, and Bo will have Shawn D, if he doesn't play the hero. Stefano gets a call from a cop from his spy at the Salem PD and learns that Bo double crossed them, so he calls the kidnappers to warn them.

Bo and Abe go to drop off point. Bo is going to drop the money off and Abe is going to have the kidnappers nabbed when they pick the money up. Bo goes to drop off the money. Back on the boat, the kidnappers are preparing to pick up the money. Shawn D says he's hungry, so the female gives him some food. Shawn D pretends to choke and when she tries to Heimlich him, he makes a break for it. Unfortunately, Shawn D. falls right into the icy Salem River.

Wednesday

January 6
Court is back in session and Sami asks Mickey to let her take the stand. Mickey says absolutely not and MArlena agrees. Sami says it is her only defense and Eric agrees with his sister. Mickey agrees to put Sami on the stand. Roman holds off the reporters outside the courtroom. Kate shows up and slaps Roman and then calls him a liar. Kate tells Roman that he finked on their deal. ROman says he backed off of her, so he did not betray her. Roman says he refuses to back off because he knows Lucas killed Franco. Kate tells Roman that he has no proof and Roman says he does, Sami has her memory back and knows what happened, she found Franco already dead and passed out, and when she woke up the gun was in her hand. Roman tells her that they both believe Lucas framed her and Sami is going to take the stand and tell everyone. Roman goes into the courtroom and Kate takes a deep breath and tells herself not to freak out. She hopes Lucas can keep Nicole from learning the truth.

Candy takes the stand first and tells the court about how Franco strangled her, almost to the point of death. Candy says that Franco was desperate to marry Sami and probably would have gotten desperate with anyone who would have stopped his marriage to Sami. The DA cross examines and asks why she didn't report this to the police? Mickey says Candy is not on trial, so the DA says no further questions. Sami takes the stand and tells her story, how she found Franco already dead, fainted, and woke up with the gun in her hand. Sami says that at first she even thought she killed Franco, but could never remember anything until Christmas Eve. Sami tells the court that she is not making this up, she was framed. Mickey asks who would do it, but the DA objects because it calls for speculation. The DA gets his chance to cross examine Sami, but shocks the court when he says he has no questions and she may step down! The DA then calls Marlena to the stand. The DA asks Marlena if it is not true that Sami kidnapped her own half sister, Belle? Sami looks at the jury, who are shaking their heads.

Lucas goes to see Nicole, he plans to convince her that he didn't kill Franco. Nicole is surprised to see him and Lucas asks her if her fall yesterday was for real or not. Nicole tells Lucas that she fell on purpose to warn him, hello! Nicole tells him that Roman is trying to get him to confess to Franco's murder. Lucas says Roman can't trap him into confessing something he didn't do. Nicole tells Lucas that Sami got her memory back and is accusing him of killing Franco. This troubles Lucas and Nicole realizes it's true, he did kill Franco! Lucas says he didn't kill anyone and is shocked that she thinks he is guilty. Lucas says Sami is a liar and Eric and Roman are believing her lies. Lucas says he didn't shoot anyone and he doesn't need her to protect her. Nicole apologizes and says she didn't mean to upset him. Lucas says she didn't, it just shows him that she has spunk and can't believe she went out on a limb for him. Lucas goes home and Nicole tells herself that she was stupid to lie to Eric. She says she has to do some damage control, but can't piss off Kate and Lucas. Nicole goes to court to be with Eric and support Sami.

Carrie goes to the hospital and remembers her conversation with Mike about their real feelings for one another. Carrie tells herself that she can't face Mike. In his office, Mike tells Lexie that he told Carrie he loved her. Lexie asks what about Ali and Mike says he broke up with Ali, but Ali is convinced they are going to get back together. Mike tells Lexie that he can't believe he told Carrie he loved her and he just made Carrie more confused and uncomfortable than before. Mike says he has to make a decision to undo all this damage, but he has no idea how to do it. Later, Carrie asks Mike to ok a press release. He does it without reading it and Carrie tells him he isn't doing his job. Mike says he did. Carrie refuses to leave until he reads the release. Mike tells Carrie that he will decide how he does his job. Carrie tells Mike she didn't mean to make him angry, she just wants him to read it. He reads it and tells her it is fine. Carrie asks Mike what is wrong with him, other than . . . Mike tells her everything is all right. They try to make small talk about their New Years Eves, Carrie tells Mike about her New Years Eve with Austin. Mike tells Carrie that this just isn't working. Carrie says they work together, they have to see each other. Mike tells Carrie that this is his fault and he realizes they can't work together professionally. Carrie asks if she is being fired. Mike says he is not going to fire her, but he thinks she should quit.

Ali is busy planning a surprise for Mike. Ali runs into Craig, who tries to convince her to once again retaliate against Mike. Ali tells Criag that she is going to marry Mike and will be Dr. and Mrs. Fabulously Happy! Later, ALi tells Craig that she is planning another incredible surprise for Mike, a real show stopper.

Hope is still waiting at the Horton house for Bo to call. Lilly brings Hopes some tea and Hope tells Lilly she has a terribly feeling that something has gone wrong. Hope has another memory of Stefano telling her he'd do anything to keep her smiling. Hope tells Lilly that she needs to go out and Lilly says she will stay by the phone. Lilly asks Hope where she is going and Hope says the only place she can get help for her son. Hope goes to church and lights a candle and prays to Mary for help. Hope says she fears that something in her past has brought on this terrible event. She doesn't know if she had a relationship with Stefano or not and she says all the memories she is having are completely opposite of what she believes about him. Hope says if anything happens to Shawn D she couldn't live with herself and asks Mary to bring her son home safely.

Bo and Abe are waiting for the kidnappers to claim the money, but nobody has shown up. Abe tells Bo that the kidnappers must have been tipped off. Bo fears that they may have killed Shawn D. Bo says he screwed up big time and has no idea how he's going to tell Hope.

The kidnappers are talking and don't know what to tell their boss when he calls back. Stefano calls them and asks them where Shawn Douglas is. The female kidnapper tells Stefano that Shawn D. is fine, they are just hiding out. Stefano tells her not to let anything happen to the boy under any circumstance. Stefano hangs up and the male kidnapper tells the female one that they have to get that money. They are watching the drop off point and see Bo retrieve the money. The male kidnapper is furious because now they aren't going to get the money at all. They decide they better get out of town before their boss learns the truth, but first they should cover their tracks.

Stefano is talking with Rolfe about all his plans for Bo and Hope, aka Gina. Rolfe tells Stefano that Hope will shortly begin to regain her memories about him. Stefano plans to swoop in and save Shawn D, to ingratiate himself with Hope to prove to him that he is still her hero. Stefano leaves, but before going tells Rolfe to finish the satelittle today!

Bo returns home and tells Hope that the kidnappers never showed. They get another call from the kidnappers, who tell Bo that he went to the cops and now Shawn D. is dead! The shot pans to the docks, where Shawn D's jacket is floating in the water. Back to the Horton house, Bo tells the kidnapper he's lying, but the male kidnapper just hangs up. Bo assures a crying Hope that this is just a scare tactic. Abe traces the call to the north side of the river somewhere, so Bo and Abe rush to find them. They search all over the docks and Bo finds Shawn D's jacket in the river and screams "God no!"

Hope remains behind with Lilly and starts remembering more and more about her times with Stefano. Hope tells Lilly that perhaps she should go back to the hotel and rest because she didn't sleep much last night. Hope assures Lilly that she'll call with any news. Lilly says she'll respect her wishes and says goodbye. Hope then begins to have more memories of Stefano, one of toasting to him as her patron, friend, and protector. Hope cries and later, Stefano shows up and tells her that he's come to help.

Thursday

January 7
I was only able to see the last half of the show today due to the trial. This is also from memory

The DA called Eric to the stand. Once there he had Eric admit that at first he believed Sami shot Franco, but in self-defense, but now he believes Sami didn't shoot Franco at all. The DA used Eric to disprove "twin telepathy." Next he called Austin to the stand. He had Austin confirm all the horrible things Sami had done in the past in order to try and win his love, so he asked Austin how he could be sure she was being honest with him now? Mickey asked Austin why he was so adamant in defending Sami and Austin says because he knows she has changed and is a good mother and is his friend. Kate damns Austin for saying those words because he may have gotten to the jury. However, the DA quickly rebuttals by pointing out that Sami has already "changed" once before when she lost her memory, so what is to say this is not just another one of her acts? The DA rests and the judge calls a recess before closing statements are given. Mickey admits to Marlena and Eric that this doesn't look good at all. Marlena cries that they can't send her baby to the gas chamber and Roman tells her that he will find out what Kate and Lucas are hiding.

In her office, Carrie types up her resignation as she cries. She has a fantasy in which Mike came to her office and tore up her resignation. He told her that she is too important to be missing from his life and he kissed her. However, Carrie snaps back to reality and says her quitting is best for herself, Mike, and Austin.

Mike, Ali, and Dr. Renault meet with Greta and John. Greta is in a gown and is going to be having surgery soon, Mike is assisting and Ali is the nurse. Dr. Renault asks Greta if she has any questions and she asks if the laser procedure will be painful. Dr. Renault says there will be some discomfort. Ali says that she read about this procedure and the pain will be comparable to a mild sunburn, which Dr. Renault confirms. Dr. Renault, Mike, and Ali leave to prep for surgery and John promises Greta that he will not leave the hospital during her surgery and when she wakes up, he'll be holding her hand. Outside, ALi begins to fantasize about Mike telling her how much he loves her after Ali's surgery and the two go at it hot-and-heavy on a gernie.

Bo and Abe are on the docks still. A boys body was found without shoes and a jacket, he was only wearing a T-shirt and jeans. Bo cries that he doesn't remember what Shawn D was wearing today. Bo wants to go to the morgue, but Abe asks Bo to let him do it and he will call Bo with news. Bo agrees and says he will go home to Hope.

At the Horton house, Stefano tells Hope he only wants to help her, but he slips up and calls her Gina. Stefano tells her that sometimes he still thinks of her as Gina. Hope wants to know what terrible things she did for him, but Stefano pretends like he has no idea what she did when she ran off and lived Gina's life. Hope begins to have memory flash after memory flash of being Gina and spending time with Stefano. We see many different faces of Gina, some are happy faces, others are deadly serious. She is often kissing Stefano on the cheek in the flashes, or he is kissing her. In one memory flash Stefano tells Gina that they are not only partners, but have a very special relationship. Hope breaks down and cries "what is happening to me?" Stefano comforts her and tells her he is here for her, just like he always was. Bo walks in at this point and throws Stefano off of Hope. Stefano leaves and says Hope is becoming Gina again, and soon she will be Gina permanently! Back inside, Hope sees Shawn D's jacket and breaks down in Bo's arms.

January 8
Todays show was a repeat of yesterday's, so I'm summarizing it in two parts, the part I did and didn't see

Part 1
John is with Greta in her hospital room. Ali comes in and says she will be helping with the surgery, so if she has any questions she should ask for her. John says he knows her, she's Mike's friend. Ali says she is Mike's girlfriend. John asks Greta how she is and she says she's afraid of the pain, but having him here means the world to her. John tells her that he owes her for unlocking some of the doors of his own past and is sure they'll learn more about Princess Gina. Greta asks if Marlena has hypnotized him again and he says no. He tells her that Marlena is afraid that he and Hope might have done criminal things for Stefano.

In his office, Mike tells Carrie that she should quit and they should stay away from each other. Mike says he fears if they lose control again, they won't be able to stop.

Marlena takes the stand and is questioned about Sami kidnapping Belle. Austin shows up and tells Sami that he's been subpoenaed again. The DA continues to question Marlena about Sami's kidnapping of Belle, which Marlena confirms she did. The DA points out that the defendant, who said she could never hurt anyone, ruthlessly hurt her whole family by kidnapping her half-sister. The DA asks MArlena why she did this and Marlena explains that Sami learned about her affair with John Black and Belle's true paternity. Mickey gets his turn to question Marlena and he asks her, as a psychiatrist, if she believes Sami could kill Franco. Marlena says that she does not believe Sami could kill Franco. The DA calls Eric to the stand next. The DA questions Eric about his suspensions of Sami when he first returned to Salem. Eric says that when he first returned he felt Sami was up to something, she was pretending to have amnesia and be paralyzed, and lying about the paternity of her son. Kate silently thanks Eric. Mickey asks Eric if he's ever picked up that Sami was guilty of Franco's murder and he says never.

Bo and Abe are searching the docks for Shawn D. Bo is upset over SHawn D's coat and Abe says the kidnappers may be holding Shawn D on the river. Abe launches a river-wide search for Shawn D. Abe also requests divers to dredge the river, which upsets Bo further. Bo decides to start his own search when Abe gets a call, the body of a young boy has been found.

Hope asks Stefano what he is doing here. Stefano says he has come to help her find here son, after all he's helped her before. Stefano walks in after she doesn;t slam the door on his face and asks why she didn't slam the door? Hope says she doesn't know and wonders what is happening to her. Stefano tells her that he feels she needs him, now more than ever. Stefano says he will pay the ransom for Shawn D. and asks where Bo is. Hope says he is with Abe, probably closing in on the kidnappers right now, who will probably turn on him for a deal. Hope tells Stefano that he knows he is behind this, but Stefano asks her if she think he'd really turn against her now? What would he gain from this? Hope tells him that he orchestrates disasters and then rides in and plays the hero, just like on the Empress Express. Stefano says he has changes, so Hope tells him to prove it and tell her where her son is and what she did as Gina. Stefano says he doesn't have the answers to either of them. Hope tells Stefano that she knows he was with her when she was Gina because she is remembering things. Stefano asks "Gina" what she is remembering.

Part 2
The DA called Eric to the stand. Once there he had Eric admit that at first he believed Sami shot Franco, but in self-defense, but now he believes Sami didn't shoot Franco at all. The DA used Eric to disprove "twin telepathy." Next he called Austin to the stand. He had Austin confirm all the horrible things Sami had done in the past in order to try and win his love, so he asked Austin how he could be sure she was being honest with him now? Mickey asked Austin why he was so adamant in defending Sami and Austin says because he knows she has changed and is a good mother and is his friend. Kate damns Austin for saying those words because he may have gotten to the jury. However, the DA quickly rebuttals by pointing out that Sami has already "changed" once before when she lost her memory, so what is to say this is not just another one of her acts? The DA rests and the judge calls a recess before closing statements are given. Mickey admits to Marlena and Eric that this doesn't look good at all. Marlena cries that they can't send her baby to the gas chamber and Roman tells her that he will find out what Kate and Lucas are hiding.

In her office, Carrie types up her resignation as she cries. She has a fantasy in which Mike came to her office and tore up her resignation. He told her that she is too important to be missing from his life and he kissed her. However, Carrie snaps back to reality and says her quitting is best for herself, Mike, and Austin.

Mike, Ali, and Dr. Renault meet with Greta and John. Greta is in a gown and is going to be having surgery soon, Mike is assisting and Ali is the nurse. Dr. Renault asks Greta if she has any questions and she asks if the laser procedure will be painful. Dr. Renault says there will be some discomfort.

Dr. Renault, Mike, and Ali leave to prep for surgery and John promises Greta that he will not leave the hospital during her surgery and when she wakes up, he'll be holding her hand. Outside, ALi begins to fantasize about Mike telling her how much he loves her after Ali's surgery and the two go at it hot-and-heavy on a gernie.

Bo and Abe are on the docks still. A boys body was found without shoes and a jacket, he was only wearing a T-shirt and jeans. Bo cries that he doesn't remember what Shawn D was wearing today. Bo wants to go to the morgue, but Abe asks Bo to let him do it and he will call Bo with news. Bo agrees and says he will go home to Hope.

At the Horton house, Stefano tells Hope he only wants to help her, but he slips up and calls her Gina. Stefano tells her that sometimes he still thinks of her as Gina. Hope wants to know what terrible things she did for him, but Stefano pretends like he has no idea what she did when she ran off and lived Gina's life. Hope begins to have memory flash after memory flash of being Gina and spending time with Stefano. We see many different faces of Gina, some are happy faces, others are deadly serious. She is often kissing Stefano on the cheek in the flashes, or he is kissing her. In one memory flash Stefano tells Gina that they are not only partners, but have a very special relationship. Hope breaks down and cries "what is happening to me?" Stefano comforts her and tells her he is here for her, just like he always was. Bo walks in at this point and throws Stefano off of Hope. Stefano leaves and says Hope is becoming Gina again, and soon she will be Gina permanently! Back inside, Hope sees Shawn D's jacket and breaks down in Bo's arms.
