Sami tries to call Austin one more time, and this time Austin answers when Sami continues to ask him to pick up the phone over the machine. Sami tells him they are starting the therapy today, and Austin tells her he'll come right over to the hospital, which doesn't please Carrie.

Austin apologizes to Carrie and tells her not to forget they belong together. Austin gets ready to head to the hospital and Carrie says she'll go by the office and talk to Kate.

Kristen gets up to search for him, and downstairs she finds a bouquet of flowers, and John brings her out some breakfast. John tells Kristen he loves her and is sorry to make her feel insecure, and he tells her that after she eats her breakfast they can go to the hospital to see John Jr. Kristen tells John she knows know he loves her, and John says that he thinks that Vivian is behind all of this hogwash, and Kristen says it was just a big misunderstanding.

Austin takes Sami aside to give her a little pep talk to boost her spirit. Austin tells Sami she has to get better so she can play with Will, and when Sami says she really wants to dance with Austin, Austin says they will go dancing one day.

Vivian and Ivan arrive at the DiMera Mansion thinking that Marlena has told John everything and Kristen is probably a miserable wreck by now. Vivian barges in and John tells her she's not welcomed here and he won't have anymore of her lies filling Kristen's head. Vivian is shocked, and says she was wrong and she's sorry. John tells Vivian they are going to the hospital, but Kristen says she's not ready to go just yet, and she'll meet John at the hospital. After John is gone Susan explains that John is committed to her so Marlena didn't tell him! Vivian says thank god they were married by a priest, and when Ivan says John and Susan were married by a priest Kristen tells him to shut up! Vivian reminds Kristen she's still not in the clear as long as Susan is around, and Kristen knows she'll have to get rid of Susan somehow.

John goes to visit John Black Jr., and talks about Marlena and how if she still loved him the temptation would be to great. He also tells John Jr. he loves Kristen and is committed to her. Finally he tells the baby to always follow his heart, and John remembers making love to Marlena in the past. Vivian and Ivan show up at the hospital and sees John with "his" son. Vivian comments that Kristen better take care of Susan if she's going to keep this sharade up, and Ivan says "But Madamn that woman is soooooooooo wired!" John comes out of the nursery to see Vivian, and tells her to just back off of Kristen.

Marlena is at her penthouse looking at her brooch and thinking how she thought she'd be able to wear it again last night when John returned to her. Marlena says she needs John so much, and wishes there was some way he could be free. Suddenly she hears someone downstairs runs to it hoping it's John, but it was Laura leaving a special breakfast for John and Marlena. Marlena tells Laura John isn't here, and explains everything to her. Laura tells Marlena John wouldn't take the vows to Kristen seriously if he knew about the lies and deceit, and that it's the 90's, people get divorced every days. Marlena says John would never do that, and she can't ask him to break those vows. Marlena tell Laura that John and Kristen's marriage was legitimate in the eyes of the church, and the only way out of the marriage was if something was wrong, which Marlena think there wasn't.

Susan is upset about her situation and thinks Marlena will be able to help her and calls Marlena. Laura picks up the phone and Susan asks to speak with Marlena (Her full name is Susan Banks). Marlena tells Susan to meet her at her office in the hospital and hangs up. Laura says at least this will keep her mind off "that woman" and Marlena says Kristen will reveal herself in time. Carrie shows up at the penthouse to see how everything went with John, and Marlena has to explain the whole situation to Carrie. Carrie wants Marlena to tell Kristen, but Marlena is sure in time Kristen will destroy the marriage somehow. Marlena and Carrie hug, and tells her that her situation with John is unlike hers and Austin's situation, and says in the end love will win. Carrie, Marlena, and Laura all go to the hospital (Carrie to see Sami, Marlena to see Susan, and Laura to do paperwork).

At Susan's apartment Susan is getting ready to leave to see Marlena when Kristen shows up. Kristen asks Susan if she is packed and ready to leave for an island in the Caribbean, but Susan doesn't want to leave the baby. Kristen threatens Susan with Stefano's name and when Susan says this is so unfair Kristen makes a little kiddy pouty face and says "Sometimes life isn't fair and you have to roll with the punches." Susan tells Kristen she'll leave, but has some things to do. Kristen gives her some more money and tells her to call her once she's arrived on her Island. Kristen leaves, not knowing the entire time Marlena's card was right in front of her face on the table! After Kristen is gone Susan leaves to see Marlena.

Kristen shows up at the hospital and runs into John and Vivian, and as they celebrate the fact that Susan is off to the Caribbean Laura shows up and sees them hugging. Laura tells Kristen she is happy for her son, and when Kristen walks of Laura tells Vivian she knows the two of them are up to something. Laura also says she feels Kristen was involved in her disappearance and one day she'll remember (little does she know Kristen is right around the corner and heard Laura's speculations!). Laura is beeped away, and when Vivian asks Kristen what that was about she tells her she doesn't want to know. John then shows up with some pictures of the baby, and has extra's for Marlena. John and Kristen then decide to pay Marlena a visit to drop off the pictures!

In her office Marlena is trying to find something wrong with John's wedding, but can't come up with anything. Susan eventually arrives, and begins to tell Marlena how she's gone through an awful time lately. Marlena asks Susan to tell her everything that happened, and reminds her what she says is in confidence.

Carrie shows up at Sami's room and finds Lucas on her bed reading. Lucas tries to comfort Carrie, and says if he had a woman like her he wouldn't leave her for anything. Carrie says Austin always has time for her, and leaves to go see Sami. Meanwhile Sami is sitting in the whirlpool tub after her session, and she asks Austin to join her. Austin says he doesn't think it's a good idea because it's for medical purposes, but Sami manages to talk him into it. As they both sit in the tub Carrie shows up, and just then Sami asks Austin to tell him he loves her face to face, and he does. Then she asks him to kiss her, and as they kiss Carrie is shocked!

Abe knows Bo wants to end this whole thing and explain the situation to hope, but if Bo gets sloppy King could kill them all.

Billie tells Hope she's sorry abut the situation, and Hope tells her she's finally got what she want. Hope says she was the one who pushed Bo away, so she doesn't blame or hate Billie. She says she won't pretend she's not hurt or angry, because she had been hoping for a life with him, but obviously Bo doesn't want that anymore. Billie almost tells Hope the truth, but Hope doesn't want to talk anymore and runs off.

Later Bo is confronted by Max, and Bo tells him not to talk to him while he's on the beat or he will blow their little partnership.

Billie and Hope hear about it at Titan, and Billie imagines Bo being killed and is frightened. Billie thinks that if Hope knew about Bo she could work with him, so she decides she must tell Hope the truth.

Marlena asks if it is her husband, but Susan flashes to her wedding to John and says her husband is the sweetest man and wishes Marlena could meet him. Marlena asks if her marriage broke up, and she tells Marlena it's complicated, that he's with another women. Marlena tells Susan she understands that pain, and that what Susan needs to do is sort out her feelings and pain, and to work through them. Marlena offers to help Susan with this, and Susan thanks her because she thought if she talked to anyone about this they'd think she was bad.
