Marlena walks into her penthouse to find John playing the piano. Marlena is surprised by his new found talent. John tells her he didn't have any lessons, and he didn't have a memory breakthrough. John tells her that he installed a computer in the piano that will play music by itself. Marlena feels so lucky to be engaged to him. John asks her to marry him, again, and she says yes. MArlena wishes they could set the date right away. John tells her they will as soon as Sami is found. Marlena is still concerned that John might have a wife and family somewhere, but John tells her that he was a priest, he has no wife or family. John asks her to stop worrying until they hear back from Bo and Greta. Marlena asks John if he wished he had gone with them? John says no, his future is with her and the children. John and Marlena have dinner and then do some dancing. As they dance, John promises Marlena that they will marry this time. Suddenly, John begins to have memory flashes of Princess Gina. Marlena asks John if he is all right? John says he is and tells her that he's perfectly in love with her and gives her a kiss.

In Lilly's hotel room, Lilly and Gina toast to the return of Princess Gina. Gina asks if Lilly can keep this a secret and she says of course. GIna tells Lilly that she needs to ask a favor from her, and she'll need her help. Lilly offers her anything she wants. Gina tells her she just wants to act like Gina when she's with her. Lilly tells her that she'd be disappointed if she didn't! Gina then tells Lilly that she knows who her heart belongs to, it's not Bo, and she's determined to get him back. Lilly asks her who her one true love is GIna doesn't tell her (at least we don't hear her tell her), she just says that there is another woman in his life. Lilly tells her that no woman can compete with her. Gina says that she was devastated when she lost him the first time, and she won't lose him again. She refuses to let anyone get in her way. Lilly says that Gina always got what she wanted. Gina says with her help she knows she will be reunited with her lost love, and if anyone gets in her way they will be sorry.

At the hospital, Eric asks a crying Taylor what is wrong? Taylor tells him about the photo shoot and how Nicole told her Lucas arranged to shoot only to make her jealous. Eric asks why Nicole would do something like that and she says because Nicole won't be happy until she (Nicole) has it all and she (Taylor) has nothing! Taylor then stomps off.

Roman is with Roberto and is pressing him to tell him the truth about Franco's murder. Roberto is coughing and choking and suddenly flatlines. Lexie rushes in and Roman tells her not to let Roberto die, he needs him to clear his daughter!

Roman is busy chastising Eric for what he did when Abe shows up. Craig comes out and tells Abe and Roman that they are doing all they can for Roberto. Craig tells them that Roberto has suffered a major cardiac arrhythmia and may not wake up. Abe leaves and Roman tells Eric that Abe doesn't believe the mob hit story, the only way Sami has a chance now is if Roberto survives.

Out on the street, Austin wonders why Carrie would bother marrying him if she was going to break them the second someone better came along. Austin hops in his car and drives away. Austin says that Carrie is still his wife and decides that he needs to talk Carrie.

Austin sneaks into the hospital dressed in a surgeon's uniform to see Carrie and confront her about her affair. He then begins to think about his past with Carrie. Eric spots Austin in the stairwell and goes to talk to him. He tells him about Roberto, and then suggest Austin get out of here. Taylor finds them and Eric sneaks out before she can see Austin. She asks Eric who he was talking to? Eric lies to her and then looks at the pictures from her photo shoot. He tells her she is a natural, but is curious what Lucas is up to, so he leaves to find out. Back in the stairwell, Austin spots Carrie with Mike and decides it's time for him to move on as well.

Roman goes to see Abe and asks him to use this new information for Sami. Unfortunately, Abe is called away for work. Roman asks God to please let Roberto pull through.

Craig and Ali return from their appointment with Gregory. Craig is all riled up, but ALi isn't. Craig asks Ali not to tell him that she's considering changing her mind. Ali says the lawsuit will get her her wonderful Mike. Ali calls her mom and brags to her about how she's going to sue Mike. Claire tells Alison that this is not normal behavior and she wants her to go back to therapy. Claire tells Alison that she needs to come down to earth, so Ali tells her mom to go to hell and hangs up. Later, Craig asks Ali if she thinks this lawsuit will win Mike over? Ali says that when Mike sees the length she'll go to for him, he'll come back to her.

Nancy talks with Mike about the lump in her breast and how scared she is that she might have cancer. Nancy doesn't want to have the biopsy here because she doesn't want Craig to know. Carrie says Craig should know, but Nancy says Craig counts on her to be optimistic and knows she rarely cries. Carrie tells her that Craig loves her and when two people love each other that much, nothing can come between them. Nancy says her mom had breast cancer when she was her age, but they didn't catch it in time. Mike tells her that she caught it early and the odds are in her favor. Mike promises to do the biopsy for her and he will be discreet. Nancy asks why he is doing this for her and Mike tells her because she is his friend and he cares about her. Nancy leaves and Carrie tells Mike that she was so wonderful with Nancy, which is why she loves him. Later, Mike tells Nancy that the lump is benign. Nancy thanks them both and tells them that she'll never forget what they've done for them. After Nancy leaves, Mike tells Carrie that he wants to take her out tonight for her birthday.

Craig goes to talk to Nancy and tells her that it won't be long before Mike is gone. Nancy exclaims "No! We can't let that happen!"

Sami is driving and is positive that she'll be cleared soon and will live the life she was meant to live with Austin and Will. In the car behind her, the Moroni hitman pulls out his gun to shoot Sami. Sami wonders if the car behind her is following her, but she loses him on a sharp turn. Sami goes to see Tracey and tells her what she did. Sami says she is also going to do the right thing for Austin, she's going to turn herself in. Tracey thinks Sami should wait till Austin gets back, but Sami says Austin will just try and change her mind.

Sami heads back to Salem and is positive that she is doing the right thing. Suddenly, her car swerves off the road. Sami gets out of her car and begins to walk to the police station. Suddenly, Sami is shot and collapses into the snow, which turns red.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Billie asks her mom if she knew that Franco was tied to the mob before Sami's wedding. Kate laughs and tells Billie that she had nothing to do with the mob or Franco's murder. Kate tells Billie that she is the one who lied to Roman and she doesn't know if Roman will forgive her. Billie says that Roman will understand, but Kate says she's not so sure. Kate hopes this means that Sami will be bringing Will home soon. Billie says of course she will, but what about Austin? Doesn't she care about her son? Kate says of course she does, but Austin has been made some serious mistakes and she hopes he can salvage his marriage.

Kate sneaks into Roberto's room at the hospital and tells Roberto that he better not sell her out.

Billie goes to see Roman and he asks her why she didn't tell him what she was up to?


March 16
Eric is pissed about what Lucas has done to Taylor. He calls Nicole, but she's not home, and Eric realizes that Nicole is probably with Lucas.

At the station, Roman refuses to even hear Billie's explanation about what she's done. He tells her that he doesn't want to hear anymore lies, he can't believe anything she says. Billie says that she did everything to clear Sami, but Roman says that they have nothing until Roberto names Franco's killer. Billie says that she promised Austin she wouldn't talk, but Roman says that she lied to her best friend and lover. Billie asks if Roman will forgive her? Roman reminds Billie that she promised never to lie to him after the baby fiasco. Billie says this was about her brother and thought he would understand. Roman tells her she thought wrong. Billie tells Roman that he's making too big of a deal out of this. Roman says she could have been beaten, raped, or the one lying in ICU. Billie asks if he'd care and he says of course, he can't deny that he cares about her, but he doesn't know if he can trust her again. Billie tells Roman that he cares about her and Sami and she only got involved with Roberto to prove Sami's innocence.

At the hospital, Kate goes to see Roberto and tells him that he has to stay quiet about the fact that she knew about the contract out on Franco. Kate asks him if he told the police that she made him keep quiet? Roberto just mumbles that Sami shot Franco. Kate says yes, but Roman is trying to pin it on someone else. She warns Roberto that if he tells Roman that she knew about the hit on Franco, he will wish there was a contract out on his life. Roberto says he will keep her secret. Kate is then kicked out of the room when a nurse comes to check on Roberto.

Nancy tells Craig that she no longer wants to oust Mike. Craig doesn't understand and she tells him about the lump and what Mike did for her. Craig tells Nancy that he loves her and wants to be there for her always. Nancy tells Craig that if Ali sues Mike it will ruin his life! Craig says if she doesn't, he'll never have a shot at being chief of staff. Ali shows up and asks where Mike is. Nancy says that he took Carrie to dinner for her birthday and Ali says "figures." She then tells them that she thinks Carrie was the one who arranged for her transfer. Ali says she is going to sue Mike and can't wait to see the look on Carrie's face. Ali goes to Carrie's office to take a call from her mom and Craig asks Nancy who she wants to be chief of staff here? We don't hear Nancy's answer, but Craig calls Gregory and makes sure that he won't be connected to Ali's lawsuit. Craig tells Nancy that LA might be good for them, it will give them a chance to relax, and when they returned he will become chief of staff. Still, Nancy doesn't look happy about it.

Carrie and Mike are at Tuscany celebrating Carrie's birthday. Mike invites Carrie to drive out to LA with him. Their song, How Do I Live, plays and Carrie thinks he planned this, but he swears he didn't. They decide not to waste the song and dance.

In Carrie's office, Ali and her mom continue to argue. Claire asks Ali to move back home because she's living in a dream-world, which is very destructive. Claire tells Ali that she can't expect to be loved when she doesn't love herself. She then tries to pair Ali up with a local guy, but Ali says she's not that desperate! Ali tells her mom that she will prove she is wrong about her. Claire tells Ali that she needs psychiatric help. Ali says if she does it is because of her put downs. Ali says that every guy she had always ran from her when they met her mom. Ali tells her mom that she's been beeped and leaves. She hides in the closet because Carrie and Mike show up. She overhears them planning their trip to LA.

Mike takes Carrie by her place to pack her stuff and then they hop into Mike's convertible. Following Mike and Carrie are Nancy, Craig, and Ali!

Austin is driving back to the cabin and can't get the picture of Carrie and Mike out of his head. He says after he sees Sami and Will he will let Mike and Carrie know how he feels about being played for a fool. Austin arrives at the cabin to read Will a bedtime story. Austin asks where Sami is and Tracey says she went to the Police Station to turn himself in. She tells her all about Sami's plan. Austin realizes he has to stop Sami and heads back to Salem to stop her. Austin stops by the side of the road and ends up finding Sami's bloody wallet.

Nicole says that she thinks Austin and Carrie are in love, but Lucas says love isn't always enough. Nicole asks Lucas if she's finished at Titan and Lucas tells her she's not. She then asks what about Eric? Lucas says he shouldn't hire a photographer who publicly accused him of murder. Nicole says she thought he was guilty at one point to, but Lucas says she wasn't quick to judge him, probably because of her own past. He tells Nicole that everyone, including Eric, would be shocked if they knew what she was hiding. Nicole and Lucas take to the dance floor. Eric shows up and gets into argument with Lucas. Lucas vows that Sami will behind bars and will give Will a loving mother and father. Eric says Will has a loving mother and doesn't need a father who hits him. Lucas says that is the biggest lie Sami has told. Lucas tries to have Eric kicked out, but Nicole gets Lucas to give them two minutes to talk. Eric wants to leave, but Nicole says she can't walk out on Lucas. Eric asks her why not? Eric doesn't understand her sudden loyalty to Lucas and tells her that he knows about the photo shot with Taylor. Eric tells her that Lucas only does what his mommy tells him and he doubts Kate approved of the photo shoot. Nicole remembers Kate warning her what would happen if she uses Lucas. Eric and Lucas get into a fight and eventually Eric and Nicole leave. Kate shows up and Lucas ends up arguing with his mom. Kate tells him that Nicole isn't worth it and he should trust her, but Lucas says he's the last person she'd trust.

Nicole lays into Eric and tells him that he had no right to force her to leave. She tells him that he doesn't own her, no one does!


March 17
At the Dimera mansion, Vivian wonders if she overdid it with the make-up. Celeste says it looks fine. Lexie, however, isn't getting a kick out of tricking her father. Celeste explains to Lexie once again why they are doing this. Elsewhere, Stefano orders Rolfe to work day and night to find a cure for Vivian. Rolfe says he hopes Vivian can hang on for a few more days until Gina complete's the artworks so they don't fall into John, Celeste, and Ivan's hands.

Vivian collapses and says that everything is so dark. Stefano tells her that she just tried to do too much today and that she will be fine. He then leaves to get her some hot tea.

Gina sneaks out of the Horton House to have a smoke. She says she hates this house and hates pretending to be someone she's not. Shawn D catches his mom as she finishes smoking and she uses some breath-spray to cover her breath. She then plays the good mommy to Shawn D. Shawn D tells his mom that he wants to go to boarding school, but dad said no. Shawn D says he was hoping she would be on her side because she went to boarding school at his age. Gina tells Shawn D that he'll have to speak to his dad first, but secretly she loves the idea of getting rid of him. Gina asks where his dad is and Shawn D tells her that he and Greta left the country. Shawn D doesn't understand why he didn't tell her and Gina says he must not have been able to find her. Shawn D also says he knows there are problems between her and his dad and he thinks his dad went alone because she turned down his marriage proposal. Gina says that she needs to find out about her past before she can make a commitment to his dad. Shawn D says that is what his dad is trying to do now! Gina snaps and tells Shawn D. "Who the hell asked him to!" Shawn D says whatever and goes upstairs.

Bo and Greta are on John's play flying to Capri. Bo tells Greta that they aren't returning to Salem until he gets the information he needs to reunite his family. Greta mentions her theory about John and Gina being more than friends, but Bo refuses to believe that John betrayed his vows. Greta tells him he would if Stefano was in control. Bo agrees and is troubled by what Stefano could have made Hope do, could she have killed for him? Greta tells him no way! Greta refuses to believe the kind man who took care of her wood have Hope kill anyone, but Bo says that is Stefano's game, he uses debts against people. Bo tells Greta that he will make sure Stefano goes to jail for the rest of his life for what he's done to his family. Greta asks if this has anything to do with a possible relationship between Stefano and Hope? Bo says he will no longer hide from the truth, he will learn everything.

Bo and Greta arrive at the hotel in Capri and Greta says the hotel is exactly like her mother described it. When they go to check in, the man at the counter is stunned when Greta tells him her last name, Von Amburg. The man, Mario, says he knew Princess Gina and is delighted to learn that Greta is her daughter.

Austin finds Sami's bloody wallet by the side of the road and fears the worst. Austin realizes he has to go to her, and to hell with the consequences.

At the penthouse, John and Marlena are in bed. Marlena tells John that he makes her so happy. When John pours some champagne, Marlena touches his tattoo. John tells her that he's been meaning to have that removed. Marlena says she's worried about inner scars and wants to help him find out about his past. John tells her all he wants is her. Marlena asks if he wants to go to Capri, but John refuses to leave until they know Sami is okay. John says they will be married in the spring, and then the next wedding they'll celebrate will be Bo and Hope's. Marlena doesn't understand why Stefano would transformed Hope into Gina. John doesn't know either, but thinks the answers are somewhere in his subconscious. Marlena tells John that his relationship to Gina was important because of the looks "Hope" has been giving him. Marlena tells John that Hope accused her of not wanting him to investigate his past and she admits that she's been afraid of what he might discover. Later, John and Marlena take a shower and then look at a picture of their wedding day. He tells her the next one will be real and last forever. The phone rings and Marlnea learns that Sami is back, but she's been shot. Marlena tells John she has to go and asks him to pray. John finds a rosary and then begins to have flashbacks of being trained as a killing machine, being the pawn, being a priest, and being with Princess Gina. Gina shows up at the penthouse to see John, who is furious about what Stefano has done to them.

Sami is taken to the hospital and Lexie tells her she will be fine, it was only a superficial wound. LExie tells her that the bullet hit the medallion she was wearing. Meanwhile, Billie ask Roman to let her help him through this. Billie tells Roman that this proves the mob was involved in the murder of Franco. Billie asks Roman to let her help him, and the two hug. MArlena walks in and sees them in each other's arms. Lexie comes out and tells Roman and Marlena that Sami is okay and they can go see her. Sami apologizes for everything, but MArlena says there are no apologizes needed. Sami tells her parents that the person who shot her is the same one who shot Franco. Roman decides to go talk to Roberto. However, he finds Roberto is heavily sedated. Roman tells Sami that Austin has been arrested.


March 18
At the hospital, Sami is upset that Austin has been arrested. Roman tells Sami that Austin is in the hands of the DA. Sami asks to talk with the DA to make a deal to keep Austin out of jail. Marlena asks where Will is and Roman asks her as well, but she doesn't answer. Roman and Marlena have to leave when Lexie checks on Sami. Marlena gives Billie a lecture about what she and Eric did. Billie tells Marlena that she doesn't need to hear a lecture from her, she already got one from Roman. Marlena tells little missy that Roman doesn't like liars and she can't believe he trusted her to begin with. Billie tells Marlena that if Roman has a problem with trust it is because she betrayed him with John. Roman was trying to get ahold of the DA during the fight, but only got his answering machine. Lexie tells Marlena and Roman they can go back to see Sami. Lexie tells them that Sami is fine and can be released. Roman says this isn't good, Sami has to go to jail tonight. Officers from the prison arrive to take Sami to death row and she's ordered to put on prison garb. Marlena asks Lexie if there is anyway to keep Sami here, but Lexie says there isn't. MArlena cries to Roman that they are running out of time. ROman says when Roberto wakes up they'll have the proof, but Marlena says Roberto may not wake up. Sami comes out in prison garb and in shackles and is lead away. A news conference is waiting for her and Roman and Marlena try to protect her from the press.

At the station, Austin demands to use the phone, so Abe lets him use the one in his office. Austin calls Tracey and tells her that he's been arrested and Sami's been shot, but he doesn't know how Sami is. Austin tells Tracey to keep Will hidden and not to talk to anyone. Abe returns and once again refuses to let Austin see Sami. Billie comes to see Austin and she tells him that Sami is going to be fine. Billie asks where Will is and Austin says he's with someone he trusts and he won't come back until Sami is free. Billie tells Austin that Abe wants to have her and Eric locked up as well, but Roman is going to try and talk him out of it. Austin is taken down to be booked and runs into Sami. Austin promises Sami that he will clear her, but Roman tells him to let the police handle this. Sami whispers where Will is and Austin tells her that he's with Tracey. Sami and Austin share one last hug before she is taken away in tears.

At the DiMera Mansion, Stefano tells Vivian that she is going to live a long sweet life. Rolfe calls Stefano, who excuses himself so he can talk safely. When Stefano leaves, Vivian vows to get the Titan stock tonight, and then the fun will begin. In the other room, Stefano tells Rolfe not to lecture him about Vivian tonight. Rolfe says he hasn't called about that, he's at the townhouse, but Gina isn't. Stefano is furious. Rolfe asks if Vivian is still badgering him about the shares and he says God yes, and if he gave them to her and she got better, Kate would be furious. Rolfe asks why he cares about Kate and Stefano says because he may need her in the future. Stefano sees Vivian walking around and is startled. Vivian says she was testing her strength, but overdid it. Stefano asks if there is anything he can do for her and she says there is only one thing she wants, the stocks. Rolfe calls Stefano back and tells him to get over here right away. Stefano tells Vivian that there is an emergency he has to tend to and they will finish this discussion in the morning. Vivian becomes upset and wonders what is so important that Stefano had to rush out of here.

Ivan is going on about his madame and Celeste feels bad that they are keeping him in the dark. Celeste tells Ivan that a miracle could happen, but Ivan thinks Vivian will leave him soon. Ivan chugs down some liquor and vents to Celeste about how Vivian is squandering her final hours with the man who is killing her. Celeste eventually tells Ivan that he's had enough to drink tonight and she sits him down and leaves to make him some coffee. She returns with coffee and Ivan tells Celeste how beautiful she is. Celeste thanks him and says that she admires his honesty and devotion, and his raw emotion. Ivan leans in to kiss Celeste, but Vivian interrupts with a phone call. She rants about Stefano, but Celeste says this can wait and hangs up. Ivan tells Celeste that he wants her, right now. The two then share a passionate kiss.

Stefano goes to the townhouse and learns that Gina hasn't done any work. Stefano says this is not like Gina at all, she is very different. Rolfe tells her that she has to play Hope this time and she's surrounded by people who knew her as Gina. Stefano thinks there is a way to control Gina and make her do what she is supposed to do, but that would mean taking her out of Salem sooner than he planned.

At the penthouse, John rants to "Hope" about what Stefano has done to them. He then apologizes for not being a gentleman. "Hope" asks John if he knew Bo and Greta went to Europe and he says he did, Bo is determined to give her the future she deserves. "Hope" says what she wants is a future with the man she loves. "Hope" asks if he's had anymore memories and he says no. John asks why she is here and "Hope" says that she wanted to apologize for upsetting her about saying those things about him having a wife or family. John is sure he didn't have any of those because he was a priest. "Hope" asks John if he's positive he was a priest, after all he was under Stefano's control. John says he knows he was a priest, but "Hope" says it is still possible that his relationship with Princess Gina was so much more, what if we were more than good friends? John asks what do you mean we? "Hope" tells John that she has all of Gina's memories. She then says she's had flashes, moments. John says that it has nothing to do with him, but "Hope" says that is not true. John tells her the past is past and he doesn't want to think about it. "Hope" asks why? She says she knows he has had memories of Gina and John says he has, but doesn't know what they mean. "Hope" says he knows he and Gina meant so much more to one another. John asks "Hope" if she knows something that happened between him and the real Gina? John finally vows to search for the truth about his past and he won't rest until he knows everything.

In Capri, Bo asks Mario to tell them all about Princess GIna's last stay at the hotel. Mario tells them that it wasn't that long ago and checks his records. The hotel manager comes out and tells Bo and Greta that they can give them no information because it is an invasion of privacy. Bo refuses to accept that answer. Greta says she is Princess Gina's daughter and shows him her passport to prove it. The man believes her and says he can see her mother in her. Greta informs him that her mother is dead and she's trying to find out how it happened. Still, the man refuses to allow them to see the registration records. Bo asks if he was paid not to give out this information? The man says he can't say. Bo asks if he can at least tell them if Gina stayed with Stefano (he shows him a picture of Stefano)?


March 19
I do apologize for the summaries being so late this week, school has taken over my life!

Eric takes Nicole home and she's in a rotten mood. Eric tells Nicole that he doesn't like her hanging out with Lucas, but Nicole tells him she can make her own decisions and Lucas is important to her future. Eric tells her that she doesn't need Lucas or Titan, but Nicole says she does need Lucas. Eric tells her that Lucas is bad news and he doesn't want to see her get hurt. Nicole says she knows what she's doing. Eric and Nicole then agree not to argue. Eric apologizes for not being around lately, he's been so busy helping Sami. She asks if he came up with anything and Eric says he did, and he's sorry he didn't tell her what he was up to. Nicole says she was so afraid that she had done something to push him away. Eric tells her that there is nothing she could do to change the way he feels about her. Eric unplugs the phone and Nicole and Eric have sex. Later they dance and kiss. After going at it again, Eric tells Nicole that he loves her and dreams about their future.

At the mansion, Kate once again tells Lucas that Nicole is bad news. Lucas tells his mom that she doesn't know half of what he knows about Nicole, and he still loves Nicole. Kate asks Lucas if he knows something she doesn't? Lucas says he doesn't care about Nicole's past, all he knows is she'll be a great mother to Will. He then tells his mom that she scared Nicole away tonight, and thanks to her he may lose his son. Kate says that as long as they stick together, they will come out on top. Later, Kate tells Lucas that the cook is making his favorite dinner, but Lucas, who is looking at pictures of Nicole, says he's not hungry. Kate tells him not to worry about a love that will never be. Lucas tells his mom to stop controlling his life. Suddenly, the TV report about Sami and Austin plays over the TV. Lucas thinks Will must be back, and they both race to the police station.

Austin is sitting in jail and worrying about Sami. He asks God to protect Sami. Billie stops by to see him and asks if she can go see Will, but Austin says that nobody can know where Will is until Sami is free. Billie decides to call Carrie and let her know she's back, but Austin doesn't want to see Carrie. Suddenly, Lucas shows up and demands to know where Will is.

Sami is taken to her cell in the maximum security area. Sami asks to be taken to Austin's cell block, but the guard says she can't do that. Sami asks her what death row is like and she tells her it's quiet and lonely, and everyone prays for a reprieve. Sami says that her dad will prove her innocent.

At the station, Marlena thinks Sami would have been safer on the run. Abe calls the hospital to find out about Roberto. MArlena takes the phone and asks Lexie questions, but eventually lets out an "oh my gosh!" Marlena tells them that Roberto has had a crises and is on a ventilator. Roman hopes they have enough evidence to have the case re-opened and Mickey says he'll give it a try. Meanwhile, Carson is giving a press conference about Sami and how justice will finally be served.

Roman, Abe, and Mickey talk with the DA about their new theory, but Carson refuses to believe anything until he sees a statement from Roberto. Carson tells them that they don't have a case and the evidence they have isn't enough to overturn Sami's conviction. Carson wants Sami put on death row immediately, but Roman begs for a little time to follow a few new leads.

Marlena goes to see Sami and tells her about Roberto. Sami asks about Austin and Marlena says she hasn't seen him. Sami tells her mom to have Mickey make sure Austin gets out of jail. Marlena says that right now Mickey and Roman are working with the DA to try and free her. Marlena asks about Will, and Sami tells her that he is with someone she trusts. Marlena says that Will should be with his family and asks her where he is. Sami refuses and says she will not let Kate and Lucas get his hands on Will. Sami says that Austin has lost everything, she doesn't want him to lose Will too. Marlena asks him what she means Austin has lost everything? Sami says that him helping her has put his marriage in jeopardy. MArlena hopes Austin and Carrie will be able to patch things up and she asks her if there is a reason she should not expect that to happen? Sami doesn't get a chance to answer because Roman shows up and gives Sami the bad news, the DA won't buy their story and wants her taken to death row.

Carrie and Mike are driving to LA for the convention. Mike tells her that last time they came to the convention they were pretending they were in love, but this time they are in love. Mike comments that she snuck off to use the phone at the last truck stop. Carrie says she was checking to see if Austin left a message, but she doesn't know why he'd bother when he's so busy with Sami. They then play the alphabet game. Mike doesn't play the game right, he keeps describing Carrie instead of things he sees by the side of the road. When he gets to L he says Love, because that is what he wants to make to her. Carrie wants that to, but . . . and Mike says he knows she still loves Austin. When a news-break comes on over the radio, Mike turns it off and they don't hear the news about Sami and Austin being captured.

Ali, Nancy, and Craig are following Mike and Carrie in Craig's car. Ali begins daydreaming about marrying Mike. Craig talks to talk to Ali, but Nancy tells him that she's totally spaced out. Back in her fantasy world, Carrie tries to stop Ali and Mike's wedding, but Mike tells Carrie that she does not belong in his life and tells her she's fired! Nancy and Craig hear the report about Austin and Sami and realize if Carrie hears it, she will make Mike take her back to Salem.

Mike and Carrie check into a hotel on the way to LA, and Nancy, Craig, and Ali do the same. Ali asks if the couple who just left were on their honeymoon? The desk clerk says he hopes not because they got separate rooms. Unfortunately, there is only one room left in the hotel, but Ali says they can share.

Mike comes to see Carrie in her room and they discuss business. Mike says he better get back to his room and write a speech for the conference, but Carrie convinces him to let her help him. However, they don't get much work done because Mike turns on his radio and they dance. When Mike decides to leave, Carrie asks him not to.

In Nancy and Craig's room, Nancy says this is a bad idea and they should send Ali, miss looney-tunes, back to Salem and forget they ever knew her. Craig tells her that he has everything under control and to just trust him.
