Greta says perhaps Jack is finally ready to fully admit he is gay and can't live a lie anymore. Jack shows up and tells both Jen and Greta that he doesn't know what they are up to, and even though he may have played games in the past and bent the truth, he has never purposely set out to hurt them or play with their emotions, so he has no idea what they are up to in regards to him.

Bo and Hope are surprised, and Bo demands that Shawn go for a drive with him and talk. Bo tells Shawn that he's not happy that he just dumped this on them, because his mother has a lot to deal with right now.

When she presses Jan for answers, Jan gets nasty and tells Hope "aren't you the one who just had a baby with someone your not married to!"

Lucas says he's been given a second chance, he wants to make peace with Sami and be a man that Will can look up to. Lucas also knows he's treated Austin horribly, and asks him for forgivingness as well. Austin says of course he forgives him, and he is proud of him. Kate is shocked speechless by Lucas' new attitude, but Austin thinks it is great. After Austin leaves, Kate asks Lucas to please tell her that the things he said about Sami were just to please his brother. Lucas says he meant every word, he knows what he has to do. At Sami's place, Sami and Marlena pack for the wedding and invite people. They also talk about Lucas and Kate. Sami thinks Lucas is trying to trick her by claiming he wants to change, but Marlena says people who survive such a trauma often have breakthroughs. Sami thinks Kate and Lucas have gotten to her mom, and she's falling for their tricks. Marlena says she hasn't fallen for anything, Lucas has had a miracle happen to him and she believes both Lucas and Kate will make a fresh start because of this miracle. She tells Sami to stop looking for trouble and stop holding grudges. Marlena uses her and Roman's relationship as an example, in spite of everything they have been through they are the best of friends. Sami says she will never be friends with Lucas, and since she brought it up, perhaps her and dad will get back together one day. Marlena says that will never happen, she loves her husband. Marlena says Roman will always have a place in her life, but John IS her life. Marlena tells Sami that she needs to begin thinking about how she treats people, and perhaps she should think about becoming someone a bit better as she starts this new life with the man she loves. Austin shows up and asks if she is packed and ready to go. Sami says she is, and she's so happy about this. Marlena, however, has her doubts about this wedding.

Brandon says to just tell him when and where, he'll be there!

At Jack and Jen's, Jack asks Greta to fly to Vegas with him, but she's unsure because of her hangover. Jack begs Greta not to desert him now, and Greta agrees to go as long as he stops shouting at her. However, Greta doesn't know if they will like it when they find out he deceived them and is gay. Jack says they won't find out, and when he gets the job he has a big announcement to make, he just hopes she won't hate him. Greta asks what could make her hate him? Jack says not to worry about that now, and after he gets this job, he will help her find a man. Greta says she thought she had with him. Jack says if it was possible, and his heart was free, who knows what would have happened. Brandon calls Jen and invites her to Las Vegas for Sami's wedding. She tells Brandon that Jack and Greta are going to Vegas too, it seems they are jinxed. Jennifer says she'll understand if he wants to take someone else, and then explains the whole Jack/Greta/Gay thing to him. Jen admits she's having doubts about whether Jack really is gay or not. Brandon says he'll talk to her later about the flight details, and hopefully they can make sure they aren't on Jack and Greta's plane. At the Brady's in Shawn's room, Bo and Shawn continue to talk. Bo still doesn't believe Shawn is the father of this baby because he's going to give it up for adoption, yet he's fighting tooth and nail for JT. Shawn says all he can say is that nothing is more important to him than what happens to JT. Shawn walks out of his room, and out on his dad. Downstairs, Jan apologizes to Hope for causing these problems. Hope asks how Shawn ended up sleeping with her? Jan says she is the school tramp, she puts out for everyone! Hope asks "then how can you be sure Shawn is the father?" Jan says she was joking, but she does have that reputation. Jan tells Hope that she was a virgin until she got pregnant. Still, Hope asks how she got involved with Shawn? Shawn shows up, and tells his mom to stop cross-examining Jan. Shawn pulls Jan aside and asks how she is doing? Jan says she is okay, and she got up early to cook breakfast for everyone since she screwed up their lives. Shawn says Belle's life is the one that has been screwed. Jan says at least she's not having a monster's baby. She also tells Shawn that he can't tell Belle the truth, and Shawn says he knows. He says he knows he and Belle are meant to be together, and one day they will work this out. Meanwhile, Bo and Hope both agree that something fishy is going on with Shawn.

Belle asks Phillip about Chloe, and if they are getting back together? Phil says who knows, they were just out walking and talking, when she said she couldn't go to Vegas, and then ran off! Belle says she never thought she and Shawn would ever break up, and when Phillip says something about perhaps one day they may end up with one another. Belle says that would never happen, things wouldn't work between them because she's not pretty enough. Phillip says she is gorgeous, and he'll prove it. Phillip suggests their Vegas trip be about them having fun. Belle tells Phillip that he is sweet, but she'll be okay. Phillip begs her to come with him on his dad's jet, and she eventually says yes.

CHloe tells Shawn that she knows he is lying, and she's not leaving until he tells her why! Shawn tells Chloe that she is a good friend, but his life is messed up and there is nothing that he can do. Shawn says his family is probably going to lose JT, and he's hoping Jan will give "their" baby up. Chloe finds it odd he's willing to hand Jan's baby over, but not his own brother. Chloe knows Shawn is hiding something, but he says he isn't. Chloe looks in on Jan, and tells Shawn that she's sorry. She says whatever he is hiding she knows it is killing him. She thinks he needs to tell someone, so he says there is something. Shawn just asks Chloe to tell Belle that he loves her, but Chloe knows that is not what he wants to really tell her. Shawn goes back inside, and back to Jan. Chloe says something still feels wrong, and she vows to find out what.
