They then start arguing about Nicole again. Lucas tells his mom that he and Nicole will be together, and he doesn't care what she says. Lucas tells his mom that if he loses Will, he will never forgive her for this. Kate promises he won't lose his son, but Lucas says her promises don't mean a thing because she lies to him like she lies to Austin. Billie walks in at this point and asks what she's lying to Austin about? Kate makes an excuse and says that they were talking about her reason for hiring Franco.

Austin says he still loves Carrie, but asks what is there to go back to? Austin says it is obvious that Carrie rather be with Mike. Sami urges him to talk to her because she might think he ran away from her, but Austin doesn't think that is the case. He says that the moment she ran to Mike was the moment she gave up on him. Austin says he only wants to concentrate on proving her innocent. Austin says they need to get in touch with Eric and Billie to see what they've come up with.

He says that he doesn't like her turning to another man for support when things between her and her husband are rough. Roman asks her if she still loves Austin and Carrie says of course.

Greta asks Bo where they start and Bo fills Greta in on Gina's last days on the island of Capri. Greta says that her mother loved Capri, so they decide to start there. Bo says that aside from learning Hope's connection to DiMera, he wants to know who the great love of Gina's life was.

At the penthouse, John pulls out of Gina's arms and asks "Hope" why she wants him to keep searching for his past? "Hope" says it is because his past is tied to hers. John tells her that she should be turning to Bo and if she won't talk to him, talk to Marlena. John leaves and Marlena confronts "Hope" and tells her that she thinks she knows exactly what is going on with her. "Hope" asks what she means and Marlena tells her that she thinks she's pushing Bo away to protect herself. "Hope" says maybe she's right, she wishes Bo wouldn't pressure her so much. Marlena thought she wanted a future with Bo, but "Hope" says she wants a future with the man she loves. "Hope" asks Marlena how she is to get over the fact that he's been with another woman, that he fathered her child. Marlena understands, but says that Bo wants to marry her now, but she keeps putting up walls. "Hope" says she wants to marry Bo, but couldn't bear the heartbreak if she was torn apart from Bo again. Marlena tells her that every decision in life involves a risk. Marlena tells her if she doesn't take a chance with Bo, she'll lose him. Hope snaps back at Marlena and accuses her of not wanting John to search for his past. Marlena says that is not true, she will support John's decision. Marlena says she doesn't understand why what John does matters to her, it doesn't effect her life. "Hope" responds with "the hell it doesn't!" Marlena asks "Hope" why John is suddenly so important to her? "Hope" says that John is the only one who understands what she's going through, what it's like to feel lost and empty. Marlena tells her that John has a very full and happy life. Marlena returns to the subject of Bo and asks "Hope" if she loves Bo anymore? "Hope" says she loves him with all her heart, but she can't get by all the times her rejected her for Billie. Marlena tells her what is important is the future, the past is dead and buried. "Hope" shouts "no your wrong!" "Hope" tells Marlena that she's being very selfish and insist John search for his past.

He excuses himself quickly and makes a call to Lexie to see if she has checked the results on Vivian to see if a mistake has been made.

However, Bo says that DiMera could have been controlling him, so he could have been involved with someone else. John says even if he was, Gina (interesting, they only mentioned a woman, not GINA) is dead so it doesn't matter. However, Greta says that she thinks her mother is alive in Hope. Bo wonders if the car accident could have something to do with this, but Marlena says a concussion can't change behavior. Bo says okay, but they all know DiMera could.

However, little does she know that Roberto was listening from the bathroom door. Eric leaves and Roberto grabs Billie and pulls a knife on her.

Up at the cabin, Sami admits to Tracey that she's begging to think she and Austin might have a chance, she has hope for them.

Carrie begs him to turn himself in, but Austin refuses to return until he's proven Sami innocent. Carrie tells Austin that she's been so worried about him and has missed him so much. Carrie tries to hold him, but he doesn't respond. She asks what is wrong with him? Austin says that a lot has happened. Carrie says that being on the run must be hard, but Austin says it's actually a positive experience, Sami is getting to spend a lot of time with Will. Austin refuses to let Lucas get his hands on Will. Carrie says that Will needs both his mother and his father, but Austin says Lucas doesn't deserve to be in Will's life. Carrie says fine, but what happens to Will when he and Sami are caught? Austin has no intention of letting that happen. Carrie says "then to hell with everything else, including our marriage" and that Sami is pulling them apart again. Austin gets angry and asks when she's going to stop blaming everyone else, she's no one to judge Sami. Carrie asks how she made him so angry? Austin says that he thought she understood why he had to do this, why he had to protect Will from Lucas. Carrie says that they can't ignore all Sami's bad deeds and not Lucas', she can't have it both ways. Austin tells her neither can she, and she has to make a choice. Carrie doesn't understand what choice, when suddenly, the cops arrive. Austin makes a run for it as Carrie begs him not to leave. The show ends with Austin coming face to face with a gun.
