July 14
Bo is wandering around wondering why Hope doesn't want to see him. He call's Alice's place just as Hope walks in with Franco. Hope says she's not going to answer the phone, and Bo eventually gives up. Bo sees a note from Alice about John and Marlena's party, and she says she's glad they found happiness. Hope says she knows what she has to do, and they leave.

Hope and Franco are driving around, and Hope says she needs some time alone. Hope and Franco eventually end up on Smith Island, and Hope is flooded with old memories of Bo. Hope goes inside and gives Alice a call to let her know where she is. Hope says she needs a night alone to think about how to go on without Bo, and she asks her Gran not to tell Bo where she is. Bo shows back up, and Alice has to tell Bo that Hope doesn't want him to know where she is. However, a sneaky Mrs. H. lets Bo know where Hope is by saying "This is a lovely picture of you and Hope at the cabin." Bo heads out to the island, hoping Hope will forgive him. Back at the cabin Franco gives Hope a friendship ring, and Bo arrives just inside to see Franco put it on her finger.

In Rome Billie is running around, and Max is following with a gun. Max confronts Billie, and he tells her they have unfinished business, and if she tries to escape she's a dead women. Max takes Billie back to his room and ties her up. Billie tells him Bo won't let him get away with this. Billie asks what he is going to do with her, and Max says King has big plans for her.

Stefano is at one of his hideouts when one of his manservants tells him that John is throwing an engagement party at the penthouse grill, he and Marlena are getting married in two days. Stefano says he'll never let Marlena marry that fool. Stefano then puts on his waiter disguise, and shows up at the party.

At the Penthouse Grill Kristen tells John she won't let him marry Marlena. Kristen tells John that he doesn't love that bitch, he loves her, and won't let that tramp steal her husband! Lexie tells Kristen she needs some fresh air, and she takes Kristen out to the terrace. Marlena tells everyone she's not going to let anything upset her happy night, and tells everyone to go on partying. On the terrace Lexie agrees to get John, only to prevent her from making another scene. John goes to see Marlena, and Stefano decides to go for Marlena.

On the terrace John tells Kristen he can't believe the hell he put Marlena through. Kristen is delusional, and goes off about how nobody loves and makes him feel the way she does. John and Kristen kiss, but Kristen wakes up, it was all a dream. This time John really comes out to the terrace, and tells her he despises her. Kristen starts crying about it being her birthday and how he said they'd celebrate. John tells Kristen he doesn't want to see her, and she's out of his life forever. John walks away, and Kristen gets onto the ledge and yells if he won't be a part of her life then she won't be a part of anyone's lives! Maggie rushes to get Marlena, and Stefano misses his chance to grab Marlena once again. On the terrace John is trying to talk Kristen down by telling her she does have a good soul and may become a good person again in time. Kristen asks if he'll love her then, and John says she has to prove she's worthy to be loved. John grabs Kristen, and everyone arrives on the terrace. Laura stays to talk to Kristen, and John leaves. Kristen tells Laura that this is all her fault, and she should have let Stefano take him away. Kristen says she didn't want to hurt anyone, and Laura says if she has a shred of decency she'll tell everyone the truth about Peter. Kristen tells Laura Stefano will help her, and she will make her and Marlena pay for everything they've done.

Back inside Marlena and John both think Kristen wouldn't have jumped, and they say they'll be together forever in 2 days. Lexie is feeling bad for Kristen, but Abe says Kristen doesn't love John, she's obsessed with him. Stefano overhear's Abe tell Lexie she's not a DiMera and she proved that at the spa when she saved Marlena. Stefano tells himself one day Lexie will accept him and become a true DiMera, one more loyal than Kristen ever was.

Sami tells Lucas that whenever her mom and John get together someone gets hurt, this time it's Kristen. She also says if it wasn't for her mom and John's sleazy affair her dad would still be alive.

Austin talks with Mickey at the party, and Sami wonders if Mickey knows Will's blood type. Mickey tells Austin about a similar case to his, and if that case comes out well, they can try the same tactics. Austin thanks Mickey, and asks him not to mention it to Carrie, he doesn't want her to get her hopes up. Later Austin tells Kate the news, and when he sees Carrie dancing with Mike he says he hopes Mickey can come through before Carrie gives up on them.

Vivian and Ivan run right into Stefano at the party. Suddenly Abe and the hostess show up, and Abe lets them in hoping they can at least calm Kristen down. Vivian wheels in a huge statue under a cover and says she brought this as a peace offering, she only cooperated because Stefano threatened her life. John rips the cover off of a statue to reveal a statue of a phoenix, and everyone is shocked. Abe then escorts Vivian and Ivan out of the party. Outside Vivian agrees to turn states evidence against Kristen and Stefano in order to stay out of jail. Later Kate tells Abe she has some information about Vivian's finances, which she'd be happy to share with him.

Marlena asks Carrie to be her matron of honor in her wedding, and she is delighted. Carrie says she has a way to test Sami's memory, she asks Marlena to ask Sami to be a bridesmaid as, because the old Sami would never be in their wedding because of her hatred for them as a couple.

Lucas asks Sami to talk for a moment, but she says not now. Sami and Austin then begin dancing. Carrie walks up to Sami and asks her to be a bridesmaid in Marlena's wedding, and Sami says no, she won't do it!

Outside Kristen screams she won't lose John, and only Stefano can help her now. Kristen calls Bart and asks to see Stefano, but Bart tells her that he doesn't want to see her. Kristen says she won't let Stefano desert her now, not after all she's done for him. Stefano then makes a quick retreat from the party, and Kristen sees him and goes after him. Stefano returns to his secret hideout and damns Kristen for causing him to lose Marlena. Suddenly Kristen shows up and asks him for help, but Stefano tells her she can rot in hell for all he cares! Kristen grabs him and tells him not to turn his back her, she's his daughter.


July 15
Bo is standing outside the cabin watching Franco put a ring on Hope's finger. Inside Hope says she can't take the ring because it's his mothers, but Franco insists she take it as a symbol of his friendship. Bo then bursts into the cabin and tells Franco to get away from her. Bo asks to speak with Hope alone, but she says Franco is staying. Bo says that Abe told her about the operation and he came home as soon as he could, and he thought she'd be waiting for him. Hope tells Bo to go back to Salem, because it's over. Bo says it can't be, because he loves her, and everything he did was because of her, he went through hell to be with her. Bo tries to explain everything about what happened, and why he had to marry Billie, and why he had to go to Rome. Hope says she tried so hard to believe he still loved her, but he disappointed her. Bo says he'll never disappoint her again, and Hope says she can't believe anything he says anymore. Bo says everything he did was to fool King, and nothing was going on between him and Billie. Hope tells him lying has become so easy to him now, and when she says it's over, she means it. Hope tells him to go, and turns her back to him. Bo tells her he loves her, and only her, and then he leaves. Hope then says "Oh my god, what have I done" and runs after him. However, Franco stops her and says he can't let her do this. Franco says Bo didn't have to make love to Billie, and she saw it with her own eyes, and just heard Bo lie to her. Hope knows Franco is right, and she hugs him. Later Hope looks up at a star he named after her, and on the pier Bo looks at the star as well.

At the party Carrie tests Sami's memory by asking her be a bridesmaid. Sami says she won't do it, and yells at Carrie to stop pressuring her. Austin asks why she doesn't want to be in her mother's wedding, and Carrie says she understands quite clearly. Carrie says that she must remember the affair, so she must have her memory back. Sami says that she may not remember the affair, but she knows about it because they told her. Sami then says she doesn't want to be in the wedding because if she falls everyone may pity her, and she'll take the attention away from Marlena and John's day. Carrie says she could use the wheel chair, but Sami says if it would make Marlena happy she'll be a bridesmaid. Marlena and John come over, and Carrie tells them Sami will be in the wedding. Marlena hugs Sami, and John thanks her. Sami decides to go get a drink, and Lucas goes as well. Marlena says she's sorry to Carrie, who was so sure she could trap her. Austin then tells Carrie that they will be together very soon, and not to lose hope.

Sami asks Lucas why he didn't warn her, and he tells her he was trying. Austin then asks Mickey about the annulment, and Mickey says the moment her hears something he'll tell him.

Mike drives Carrie home, and she's happy and tells Mike that Austin may have a way to be together very soon. Carrie then tells Mike she's going to find the perfect woman for him, and Mike says he may all ready know the perfect woman, but she may not want him. Carrie says she'll have a talk with her and change her mind, and she asks Mike who this perfect girl is (we never hear his response).

Back at home Sami notices Austin is so happy and says he probably is happy because Carrie's trying to prove she has her memory, and then accuse her saintly mother of being part of the scheme. Sami can't sleep that night, and looks at Austin and wonders what he's dreaming about. We then see Austin's dream, he's telling her about the annulment. Austin talks in his sleep and Sami hears him says he's free to marry Carrie. Sami calls Lucas about what she overheard, and she thinks maybe Mickey is working on a way to get her marriage annulled.

Kate is furious with Abe about how he and Bo let Billie put her life in danger, but Abe says she should be very proud of what Billie did. Kate says she's just afraid she could still be in danger. Later Kate finds Bo on the doc, and he tells Kate he's lost Hope. Kate doesn't understand, and Bo says Hope doubts his love, and has lost faith in him and their love. When Bo leaves Kate gets a twisted smile on her face and says she has to call Billie with the news.

After the party John and Marlena hold each other, and Marlena talks about how she had faith that they'd be together again, and then they kiss. Back at home when Marlena goes to put on some hand lotion she finds Roman's letter. Marlena tells John she's so greateful to Roman for forgiving them, and John says he is too. Marlena looks at the letter, and says it's one of the most precious gifts he gave her. Marlena says that part of her life is over, and in two days she will start a new part. John says that he hopes that Stefano has given up on her, and says they may have seen the last of Stefano DiMera.

In Rome Billie is still tied up in Max's room. Max tells Billie that King has big plans for her. Billie tries to reason with him about getting him a deal, but Max says that JL will be out and back in business very soon, and she has to pay big time! JL King calls Max and says that he's ready to put his plan into action, and he'll check back soon. Max eventually leaves the room, and Billie searches for a way out, but realizes she's trapped.

Kristen and Stefano are fighting, Stefano blames Kristen for his loss of Marlena. Kristen says she understands his pain, but they can still be with the people they love. Stefano tells Kristen he wants nothing to do with her, and he's leaving Salem. Kristen laughs and says the great Stefano DiMera is a lousy coward. Stefano tells Kristen to never call him a coward, and how dare she show disrespect for him after what he did for her and Peter. They argue and Kristen blames him for her parents death. Kristen tells him that her and Peter were just trophies of their mother, the one person he couldn't have. Kristen yells that he abandoned her mother, and now he's abandoning Marlena, he must not love her as much as he claims. Stefano says he loves her with every fiber in his body, and Kristen tells him to go after her then. Kristen asks him if he's going to do it, and Stefano says he will think about it, but he must get out of town. Kristen starts whimpering and groveling about how he corrupted her from the good person she was, so he can't abandoned her now. Kristen says she has betrayed everything she believes in to keep John, and she won't let him turn his back on her, he OWES her! Stefano says he doesn't owe her anything, and Kristen says that he doesn't love Marlena, this is just a sick game he's playing with John, and tells Stefano to run away. Kristen smashes a picture of Marlena and sulks for a bit. Stefano returns and says perhaps Kristen is more clever than he gave her credit for. Stefano picks up the picture of Marlena and says he can't imagine is life without her, and Kristen says she can have a life with her, and she with John. Stefano says there is not much time to stop the wedding, and Kristen says if anyone can it's him. Stefano answers "Perhaps."

They then argue about whose fault it was that Kristen lost John, Stefano blames her and then washes his hands of her. Stefano makes a few calls, and learns about John's security measures.

Suddenly Bo runs in to save her and tells her he loves her, but it's just a stupid dream, though she really is gagged. Billie is delusional and thinks Bo does love her and will save her.
