Gina is flirting with Rolfe, telling him that he's the one person who understands him. Gina tells him that Stefano is being mean and won't let her spend time with Greta or John. Rolfe says that is because they are the two people who could blow her cover. Rolfe asks Gina if she would ever cross Stefano? Gina dodges his question and whines about how draining it is to be both Hope and Gina. Gina spots Mickey and Maggie coming, so Rolfe takes off. She talks to them about the Fancy Face II, and how things are going with her and Bo. Later, Gina refuses to stop pursuing John until he remembers everything. Rolfe goes back to see Gina and commends her on a brilliant performance. Gina asks Rolfe how he changed her and John's identities? Rolfe tells her it was extremely complicated. Gina starts telling him how brilliant he is and he hopes Stefano appreciates him. Gina starts telling Rolfe that John could be a threat because he was Gina's partner, and they can't be so sure that John won't remember the truth. Gina tells him that Marlena is hypnotizing John and Greta is telling him stories about his life with Gina. Gina tells Rolfe that there could be a chance that he turned John back into Father John when he turned Hope into her. Rolfe says that is preposterous. Later, Rolfe runs into Stefano and tells him that they have a big problem. Gina goes back to the townhouse and starts working on paintings and is sure that she's gotten to Rolfe, and soon Father John will be reborn! Gina tells herself that after she finishes these paintings, she, John, and Greta will fly to Europe. However, she has to find a way to get rid of Marlena Evans for good first!
Bo can't stop thinking about what is going on between "Hope" and Stefano and vows to get to the truth. Bo goes to see Lilly and tells her that "Hope" isn't sharing her new memories of Gina with him. Lilly says that is odd because Hope has always wanted to remember her life to rebuild her life with him. Bo is hoping she can help him, and asks her to tell him everything about Gina and her connection to DiMera. Lilly says she doesn't know if she can help, her memory is so poor. Bo asks if she's said anything to her recently, and Lilly remembers Hope telling her about her scary memories of Stefano. Lilly tells Bo that Hope has had terrible memories about being with Stefano and maybe that's why she won't tell him, she's afraid. Bo asks Lilly if she's encouraging Hope to be more like Gina? Lilly says while she wants her Gina back, she's with the angels. Bo asks Lilly if she knows if Gina spent any other time with a man other than DiMera. Lilly tells her that Gina lost the great love of her life, he left her and her heart never mended. Bo asks Lilly to tell him everything she knows about this man Gina loved. Later, Bo goes and finds John and Greta and asks them if they might know who the love of Gina's life is that she lost in Europe.

MArlena asks what they were talking about and Billie was talking about finishing a campaign. Eric asks why they have come and Roman says he was wondering if they've been talking to Austin, and by the way they are acting, he's guessing they have. Eric says they haven't and Billie says Kate was asking her the same thing earlier. Roman says that Kate would like nothing more to see Sami put away, or to death, but he won't give up till he proves Lucas killed Franco. Eric suggests that perhaps Lucas wasn't the one who did it. Roman asks him who it could be? Roman asks Eric if he knows something he hasn't told him, but Eric says no. Mickey gives Roman a call about Sami's sentencing, so Roman and Marlena plan to go.

Back in court, Roman begs the judge to spare Sami's life so he can prove her innocence. Marlena says that what Austin and Sami did was wrong, but it was out of love and desperation for Sami's son.

Sami doesn't think they would, but Austin says he thinks Mike would, and he's not sure about Carrie's loyalties. Mike and Carrie reminisce about the trip in LA when Carrie got sick and Austin listens in as Mike tells Carrie that she kissed him when she was asleep. Carrie asks why he didn't tell her that before and Mike says because she was in love with Austin, but now that he's left, he doesn't have to hide his feelings anymore.

Rolfe says that John is going through hypnosis, but Stefano doesn't think Marlena can bring back John's non-existent memories. Stefano asks Rolfe if John's memories are non-existent or not. Rolfe says the memories have been erased, but the chip is far less sophisticated than the one in Hope's brain. Rolfe says he doesn't believe he'll remember, but he can't be totally certain. Stefano asks Rolfe if he has any idea how dangerous this could be? Rolfe says that is why he thought they should bring Father John back to their side. Stefano says never and asks where he got such an idea. Rolfe says that it was Gina's idea. Stefano says Gina has been spending too much time getting to know Greta and John and not enough time working on the paintings. He says once she is done, he will accompany Gina to Europe. Rolfe asks "what about Vivian," but Stefano says the marriage is doomed because all she wants is the stocks. Rolfe tells him that Vivian does love him, but Stefano says it's irrelevant now. Rolfe says "even if . . . ." Stefano asks Rolfe if he thinks she's onto him? Rolfe says, no, but he thinks Vivian could die. Stefano says that the other day he thought the device wasn't working and that she knew the truth, but he thanks God he was wrong. Rolfe says he will keep looking for a cure, but must pray she hangs on long enough. Rolfe begins to worry about John, but tells himself not to consider crossing Stefano.

Austin decides to confront Mike and Carrie, but as he goes out to see them, they are on their way out with Tracey. He's heartbroken and decides that he can't desert Sami now. Sami tells Will that she prays they don't take Austin away from him too. She tells Will that she's being punished for all the horrible things she's done and she's let him down. However, she says the one good thing that has come out of this is that Austin has become her friend, he is her rock. Sami tells Will that she wishes Austin could stay with them, but she can't ask him to give up anymore of his life for them. Austin listens in as Sami tells Will all of this, she thinks he's gone. He tells Sami that they aren't giving up. Austin tells Sami that he couldn't leave her to face this alone, he's going to keep his vow to prove her innocent. Sami asks what they will do?
