March 99 Week 4


March 22
Sami asks her dad why the DA doesn't believe him and Abe? Roman tells her that the DA won't budge without a sworn statement from Roberto. Marlena tells Sami that they are working as hard as they can on an appeal. Sami asks about Austin and Roman says the DA won't drop the charges. The guard comes and tells Roman and Marlena that their time is up. Marlena promises they'll return in the morning and Roman tells Sami to hang in there. Sami dreams of Austin freeing her and them becoming a family again, and she asks God to make it happen. Later, Sami has a nightmare of going to the gas chamber when Lucas and Will show up together in horrendous yuppie country club golf outfits. Lucas tells Will to say goodbye and good riddens to his mommy.

In Roman's office, Marlena wonders how they will get through this. Roman holds her and says they'll get through it together. Marlena eventually leaves and Billie shows up. Billie asks Roman if he'll ever be able to forgive her? Roman tells Billie that he realizes he owes her for trying to help Sami and thanks her. He says he realizes this because the legal system let him down today, and now he just prays they can save his daughter.

Lucas shows up and demands that Austin tell him where Will is. Austin refuses. Kate shows up and tells Austin that he's a fool to side with Sami, she's why he's in jail in the first place. Austin tells mommy dearest that he'd rather stay in jail than see Lucas get his hands on Will. Kate asks Austin not to throw away his future for Sami, but Lucas says he's already thrown away his future. Lucas then tells Austin that Carrie has moved on, he blew it, his marriage is over! Lucas tells him that Mike and Carrie went out last night for a very romantic evening to celebrate Carrie's birthday. He then asks him if he even remembered it was Carrie's birthday? Billie, who has shown up, tells Lucas to stop it. Lucas offers to leave and says that he'll go set up Will's new play room. Kate asks Billie for a moment alone with Austin. Once she's gone, Kate asks Austin what Sami has done to him. Austin says that he believes in Sami's innocence and couldn't set by and see her convicted for a crime she didn't commit. They start arguing and Kate threatens to press kidnapping charges against him if he doesn't say where Will is. Austin tells his mom if she does that, she'll lose him forever. Kate thinks Sami has turned him against her, but Austin says she's done that on her own. Kate tells Austin that Sami may cost him his marriage. Austin tells his mom that Sami and Will are his only concern right now.

Lucas goes to see Sami and tells her that she's going to have to deal with him, now. They argue and Lucas vows to get custody of Will and make sure Sami never sees her son again!

At the townhouse, Stefano is livid because he can't find Gina anywhere. Stefano says that Gina needs to be reminded why he allowed her to return. Stefano and Rolfe argue about Gina's intentions. Stefano believes Gina might have a secret with John. Rolfe says when they transferred Gina's memories to Hope, any secrets the real Gina had have been transferred to Hope. We then see a flashback of Rolfe transferring Gina's memories to Hope in some Frankenstein like contraption. Back in the present, Stefano wonders what secrets Gina gave Hope. Rolfe says that Gina was never the same from the time that he brought John to Maison Blanche, that's why he had to make a replacement of her. Stefano says that when John left Europe, Gina lost her confidence. However, Hope was much more confident than the original Gina, but Rolfe says the new Gina has reconnected with John and Greta now. Stefano says that he can't let them find out the truth. Rolfe tells him to relax, Gina would never reveal anything about her criminal activities. Stefano says that his concern is how far Gina would go, she was after all very close to John Black for many years. Rolfe chuckles and says that the closest John got was to hearing her confession. Stefano then reveals a huge secret, John Black was never a priest!

At the penthouse, Gina tells herself that she's finally getting somewhere with John. John comes downstairs after tucking Belle in, she had a nightmare. Once again, Gina tells John that he has to deal with his past for his kids sake. Still, John doesn't want to jeopardize his future with Marlena. John turns the table on her and asks why she pushed Bo away from her when he wanted to help her? GIna says that it is not his search, it is theirs and they need to find out about their past together! John says they do not share the same past. Gina then has a flashback of herself and John running from the cops and John promising Gina that he'd always be there for her. John encourages "Hope" to go to Europe, but Gina says she wants to stay here and reclaim the life she once had when Stefano turned her back . . . . John asks "Hope" what she means? She says she meant when Stefano turned her from Gina to Hope, she lost so many memories. She says that is why it's so important they find what happened to them during their missing years. Gina tells John that she thinks there was another man in her life while she was Gina, maybe she has another family. She tells John that she only lost four years, he lost more. Still, John says he was a priest, there was no woman in his life. GIna tells John that he was under Stefano's control and he erased all his memories of being Father John. She tells him that he could have left behind a heart broken family in Europe. John then blurts out "like little Greta and Gina." Gina tells John that Gina cared for him deeply and was heartbroken when she lost him. She tells John that he was a man, he had to have felt something for Gina. John admits to feeling something and he tells Gina about his hypnosis session and how he felt a warm connection to Gina. Gina says she felt it too. John lets out an "Ohhhh myyyy Godddd" John asks her how much she remembers about Gina. Gina says she knows a lot, but someone is standing in her way. John thinks it is Stefano, but it's really Marlena. John becomes upset and says that Stefano has made them into freaks. Gina says they are not freaks! John apologizes and hugs her, he tells her that he knows exactly what she's feeling. Gina leans back and looks into John's eyes as if she was about to kiss him. Gina tells John that even if they were under Stefano's control, they may have realized Stefano was their enemy and joined forces to save each other. John strokes Gina's hair as Marlena walks in on them.

In Capri, the manager suggests Bo and Greta try another hotel, but they refuse. Bo once again ask the manager if Stefano stayed in this hotel with Gina, but the manager refuses to divulge records. A fed up Bo makes this a police investigation and demands he hand over the records. The manager still refuses. Greta tries to reason with the manager, but it does no good. Bo is positive that Stefano has paid the man off. Bo and Greta take a room in the hotel and Greta is moved to tears when she feels her mother's presence in the room. Bo tells Greta that Princess Gina would have been proud of the way she turned out. Bo apologizes for being insensitive to her feelings. Greta finds some candy in the room and remembers how her mom would bring this candy back whenever she stayed here and she and Father John would divide the candy up. The bellboy brings up there bags and Greta asks him to please tell her about her mom. The bellboy tells Greta that her mother would stay in this room for days on end, painting out on the balcony. The mysterious part was that she never showed her paintings to anyone. Greta asks where her mom went to relax and the man says she used to hang out at a place where poor young artists hung out. Bo thanks him and then makes plans to have dinner at Gina's hangout.


March 23
Craig is kissing Nancy in their hotel room and telling her how much she means to him. Nancy promises Craig that she'll never keep secrets from him again. Still, Craig is upset that she went to Mike for help during her cancer scare. Nancy says Mike helped her, but Craig says he could have done the same. Craig tells Nancy that they can't stop their plan to oust when they are so close, but Nancy thinks Ali is so wacko right now. Nancy realizes Ali has been gone for some time, and she begins to worry.

Ali is spying on Mike and Carrie, who are in Carrie's room. Carrie has asked Mike not to go, and then says it is because he forgot his speech. Mike tells Carrie that he wants to stay with her tonight and every night. Outside, Ali begins to freak out. Mike and Carrie then decide to play a game of poker. Ali sees this and says they aren't having an affair, if they were thy wouldn't be playing cards. Ali then fantasizes about playing strip poker with Mike, and making love to him. However, Carrie ends up closing the curtains because she can see Mike's cards reflecting in the window. Nancy eventually finds Ali and drags her away from the window. Ali says Mike and Carrie are only playing cards, so they must only be friends. Nancy suggests they are playing strip poker. Inside, Mike and Carrie are kissing. Ali doesn't believe Mike would cheat on her. She then decides that she has to know what they are doing. Nancy and Ali hide when the door to Carrie's room opens. Mike exits and goes back to his own room. Ali tells Nancy that she was right, Mike and Carrie aren't having an affair.

Mike goes back to his room and calls Carrie, neither can sleep. Mike says he knows they will be together someday and she just has to trust in their love. Carrie tells Mike that he is incredible. They both say I love you and good night.

At the penthouse, Marlena walks in as John is stroking "Hope's" hair. She is not pleased and slams the door to grab their attention. John asks how long she's been standing there, and Marlena says long enough to wonder what they have been doing? Marlena asks if she is interrupting? "Hope" says no and says she came to apologize for the things she said earlier. SHe also says she's sorry about Sami. Marlena cries that Sami is going to death row tomorrow. John comforts Marlena, which upsets Gina. Gina decides to leave, but not before getting a hug from John. Marlena asks John why he had his arms around "Hope," and why was she looking at him in a certain way? John says "Hope" is confused these days, but Marlena doesn't understand why "Hope" is so fixed on having him help her instead of Bo? John says that he believes "Hope" feels only he can understand what she is going through. John tells Marlena that if he ever gets to the bottom of this, he may have to work with Hope. Marlena asks John how far this little investigation will go? John tells Marlena that he hasn't made any decisions about investigating his past, with or without Hope. John tells her that he knows this is not the time though, and that he loves her and wishes they could set a wedding date.

Rolfe can't believe what Stefano has told him, John was never a priest. Stefano says that John was never ordained, he was under his control from the very beginning! Stefano says that a man of God would never do the things he ordered John to do. Stefano says that John was one of his best operatives, he was cold blooded, ruthless, and completely without remorse. Stefano tells Rolfe that he kidnapped a very young Forest and he was the one who sent him to the seminary. Stefano says John and Gina were very well aware John was not a priest. However, Stefano says that John doesn't know he wasn't a priest, and he must never know that. Stefano chuckles that not even Gina knew what John was capable of. Rolfe says he did John a favor by erasing his memory. Stefano says that John and Marlena would be shocked if they knew what John really did. He says that Marlena would question her love for John if she knew the truth, so this information could be valuable to him one day. Stefano says there are times he misses the old John. Rolfe says Gina does as well. Stefano says that Gina must finish the paintings and then he'll send her back to Europe. Rolfe comments about the crude chip in John's brain, and how Gina may slip up and drop hints to John about their past. Gina shows up at this point and hears Stefano's fears about her betraying him. GIna goes to see "Steffie" and acts very sweet and charming with him. Gina tells Steffie that she wants to go back to Europe and have fun. Stefano says she can have that life back, once she finishes the paintings. Gina then agrees to paint. Stefano asks to be brought up to date with Bo's doing. Gina says that Bo went to Europe to investigate her past, but she doesn't think he'll find anything because Interpool and the ISA never caught her. Still, Stefano says they could research her past with Father John. Gina says that would be a dead end, but Steffie isn't so sure. He asks her if she is keeping something from him. Gina tells him to relax, she'd never keep anything from him. Gina and Stefano then have a flashback of meeting at Gina's hangout to do business. Stefano thinks it's a shame that she has to stay in the hotel on her own. Stefano asks when she will return to Maison Blanche? Gina says perhaps after she pays a visit to Lilly Faversham. When Stefano leaves Gina, some man almost kills Stefano, but Gina saved him. Gina tells Stefano to please stop checking up on her all the time. Stefano leaves her to paint, but warns her to stay away from John. Gina says it would be easier not to breath. Gina vows to get John back, and to never lose him again.

Bo and Greta go to Greta's hangout, but Greta can't believe her mom hung out here or was a painter. Inside, some beatnick is giving a speech performance. Bo and Greta take some seats and order some food. Bo then asks the owner about Princess GIna, and he becomes very defensive. Greta explains their predicament. The man says he saw Gina maybe five, ten years ago. When Bo shows him the picture of Stefano, the man says he's never seen him. Bo, however, knows better. The man then tells someone else that Bo and Greta are asking too many questions and need to be gotten rid of. As they eat, some poet walks by their table saying something about Princess Gina. Bo follows the man outside and is beaten up by two thugs. Back inside, two men make advances on Greta, but Bo enters and decks them. She asks what happened to him and he tells her he's fine, and then they leave. Bo tells Greta that they have been given a warning, and he's more determined than ever to get to the truth.


March 25
This has NOT been proofed. I will try and do it at a later date, I have a ton of school work to do right now.

At the hotel, Greta puts an ice pack on Bo's beaten-up face. Bo tells Greta that uncovering her mom's past will be more difficult than he thought. "Father" John calls Greta to see if they've made any progress with their investigation. Greta tells John what little they have found out, which is her mom spent a lot of time painting on the balcony. She also tells him about the restaurant and Bo's run in with thugs. She then tells John about the hotel and asks him if he remembers the candy? John says no, and asks if anyone knows if Gina traveled with a priest. Greta says she doesn't know, this hotel doesn't like giving information away.

Back in Salem, John hangs up the phone and Marlena asks him why he hung up so quickly, was there something she wasn't supposed to hear? John tells her that he was trying to be sensitive to the fact that she has so much on her mind as is. Marlena apologizes for snapping at him. She asks what they have found out and he tells her. She asks if he wants to go there, but John tells her that he's not leaving until Sami is free. Marlena realizes Sami is being transferred today. John asks if she needs him with her, but Marlena says she thinks she should do this alone. John asks Marlena to tell Sami "To believe is to be strong." Marlena leaves for the station and John remembers dancing with Gina. He wonders what it all means. He finally begins to suspect that something was happening between himself and Gina.

Back in Capri, Greta decides to check out leads on John. Bo is puzzled by why Gina lead such a secret life, and what happened to her art work? Greta thinks she knows a way and calls the local art gallery. Unfortunately, the gallery has no records of her works. Bo says he knows someone who might know, "Hope." Bo says that "Hope" also has the ability to sketch, which she developed a year ago. Bo hopes that he just doesn't regret this. Greta excuses herself so Bo can have some privacy.

Greta goes to see the manager and asks him if John Black was ever a guest? The man looks at the picture

At the Horton House, "Hope" tells Shawn D that she made some calls and he can start classes at a private school on Monday. Shawn D thanks his mom, but Alice is suspicious. "Hope" says she will miss him terribly, but she wants the best for him. Shawn D thanks her, apologizes for their fight earlier, and goes off to pack. Alice can't believe she is sending her son off to school as if it was no big deal. She asks "Hope" if she's discussed this with Bo? "Hope" says she has, but Bo doesn't approve. "Hope" says it's what the kid . . Shawn D wants, but Alice knows better. She tells her to at least wait till Bo comes back. "Hope" says who knows when he'll be back, he went off on that foolish trip. Alice tells her that she should have gone with him, but he's probably tired of being turned down by her. "Hope" tries to leave, but Alice asks what is happening to her, she doesn't even know her anymore. "Hope" tries to change the subject, but Alice is too sharp to fall for that. "Hope" says everything will be just fine and she has things to do before going to the airport. Alice asks her if she's going to call Bo and tell him about Shawn D, but "Hope" says she doesn't even know where he is.

Gina goes to the townhouse, smokes, and then decides to paint. She says the sooner she is done, the sooner she can reunite with John and Greta in Europe. She says that everything is finally coming together. Gina gets a call from Bo, which surprised her. She tells Bo that he's wasting his time, but Bo says that is not the case, he already knows that Gina was an accomplished artist.

At her cabin, Tracey gets Will some breakfast and promises to take care of him until she hears from Sami or Austin. Tracey turns on the TV and realizes that both Austin and Sami have been caught.

Abe finds Roman in the office, he fell asleep working on Franco's murder file. Unfortunately, he's found nothing. He fears he'll never save Sami if Roberto dies. Abe thought the new lead would have been enough, but he says that Carson Palmer is out to make her record look good, and a death conviction does just that. However, Abe thinks that Roberto may be willing to squeal on the mob considering they want him dead. Suddenly, a ton of reporters show up for Sami's transfer to death row. Abe has to hold Roman back from killing a particular reporter. Abe then gives Roman a lecture in controlling his emotions.

Mickey shows up to see Sami in jail. Mickey has no good news, she's being transferred to death row today. Mickey gives Sami more bad news, the DA is going after Austin and is asking for the maximum sentence against him. Sami thinks God is punishing her, but Mickey tells her that he doesn't believe that, and neither should she. Sami says that she's spent her life being selfish, but Austin taught her how to care about others, sacrifice, and the true meaning love, so she has to help him.

Kate comes to see Austin and tells him that she wants to help him get out, but he has to tell her where Will is. Kate tells Austin that he's sentencing Will to a life without his family. Austin says that he is protecting Will, even if it means keeping him away from his family. Kate tells Austin that Lucas did not hit will and both he and Sami have put Will in more danger than Lucas ever has. Kate tells Austin if he tells where Will is she may be able to persuade the DA to go lenient. When Kate asks AUstin if he's willing to give up Carrie, Austin says he doesn't want to talk about his marriage. They talk about the past and Austin tells Kate that all he has is his strength and judgement, Lucas has her, he always has and always will. Austin is told his time is up, which he's happy to hear and willingly leaves.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Lucas is pacing around ranting about Will. He also wonders why someone wants Sami dead. He then asks Gregory, who is with Lucas, how they will get Will back? Gregory says that is easy, he files kidnapping charges. However, Lucas says he doesn't know if he can do that. Gregory tells him that is the only way to get Will back, and when they do, he better be prepared for a custody hearing. Gregory has to go, but not before reminding Lucas to get married.

Lucas goes to the station and finds Kate, who is upset. She tells Lucas that she thought she could call on the bond between a mother and child to convince Austin to tell them where Will is, but that bond is broken. Kate cries that this is all Sami's fault, Sami has taken her son and grandson. Kate tells Lucas they have no choice but to move on to their next plan. Lucas says he knows what he has to do.

Sami is lead out of her cell and Roman shelters her. Sami sees Palmer and says she has something to say to him. Palmer says he has nothing to say to her. Roman tells him to start with thank you, because she's done a lot for his career. Roman promises Palmer if Sami's sentence is carried out, he will find any and all dirt on him and expose him for using his daughter as political motivation for his career. Palmer agrees to listen to Sami and they go to his office. Austin is then lead out and the hears Sami plead with Palmer to spare Austin. Austin tells Sami "No!" Marlena shows up at this point and hears Sami tell Palmer that all Austin did was risk his life to save an innocent woman from death, so she could have a few more days with her son. Palmer, however, has no sympathy. Sami tells Carson that he got her and she's about to die, so why punish Austin. Palmer just walks out and tells Austin he'll see him in court for his arraignment. Austin thanks Sami for what she tried to do. Kate and Lucas show up and Lucas says he's going to press kidnapping charges against Austin. Austin and Sami refuse to tell Lucas where Will is. Lucas and Austin get into a fight when Tracy shows up with Will.


March 25
Once again, no proofing, sorry!
At the penthouse, John is remembering "Hope" telling John that he and Gina might have been more than friends. He is also thinking about how Hope says she has Gina's memories, but John thinks they are all jumbled and incomplete. John says he wishes the real Gina could give him the answers, if only she was alive. John remembers being a priest, but he doesn't understand his feelings for Gina, unless he was under DiMera's control. John becomes angry and we see more flashes of his past. He finally realizes that he has to find out the truth, and then he leaves.

Stefano comes home and Rolfe asks how Vivian is. Stefano hasn't seen her, and he doesn't want to check on her because all she is talking about is the stocks. Rolfe tells her that it is her dying wish. Stefano says they should talk about something a little uplifting. Stefano says that Gina is finishing her paintings, and soon he will take her to Europe. Stefano thanks God that Gina no longer has to worry about Bo now that he and Greta are on a wild goose chase in Europe.

Vivian is on the phone telling Ivan and Celeste that she's positive Stefano will hand over the shares of Titan to her. After the call, Vivian puts more deathly make-up on. Vivian calls to Stefano and pretends like she's about to die. She reminds him that he promised her the stock on their wedding day and how he is a man of his word. She tells him time is running out, but Stefano tells her to be strong. When the doorbell rings, Stefano uses it as an excuse to leave, which upsets Vivian because she thought he was about to give her the stocks.

Stefano answers the door and finds it is John. John wants to see his aunt and Stefano gets a chuckle out of telling John that he's now his uncle. John asks to see Vivian again, but Stefano says he can't allow that. Vivian then rings her bell and calls to Stefano. John barges in and goes up to see her. Vivian pretends like she's about to die when John comes in. Stefano follows shortly and John asks DiMera what he's done to his aunt. Stefano says he has done nothing but love and protect Vivian and he's as concerned about her condition as he is. Vivian tells John that the situation is complicated, but the fact is that she's dying.

In Capri, Greta asks the man at the counter if John Black ever stayed in the hotel, but he says he does recognize something familiar about the man. However, he says that the man only reminds him of the local priest, who is dead. Greta asks him to check the records and begs him to do it as a favor for her. She promises the manager will never know, so he agrees. However, the manager finds Greta and says if she is still looking for information on Gina, then she and her friend will have to leave. Greta says that her clerk was doing no such thing. The manager leaves and the clerk tells her that he couldn't get into past records because of a password. Greta sits down in the dining area and notices a painting on the wall. The signature is a GV and she wonders if it is Gina Von Amburg. She remembers her mom telling her once that she signs her name like an artist would sign a painting. Greta is positive that this is a painting her mom made.

Bo is talking to "Hope," Gina becomes upset when he's close to discovering her art secret. She tells Bo to drop it and come home. She becomes even more upset when she learns that Bo and Greta are at the Capri. Gina asks what he has found out, and Bo says that the manager wouldn't talk to him, even after he told him that Gina was dead. However, Bo does tell her that they found out Gina went to the Isle Gratto restaurant, which is where Gina and Stefano met. Bo shocks "Hope" when he tells her that he's positive Gina met Stefano there, and he's determined to get to the bottom of things. "Hope" begs Bo to please come back so they can have a future, she doesn't want him getting hurt over this. Suddenly, Greta interrupts their chat and tells Bo that she has to show him something important. Bo says goodbye to "Hope" and goes with Greta. Greta shows Bo the painting her mother did.

Gina realizes Bo will never give up and may learn the truth, which could put her and Stefano in jail for years. She says she can't let Bo and Greta find out what she was doing, so she has to go stop them.

At the police station, Tracy walks in with Will and shocks everyone. Roman recognizes her and is angry she didn't come forward. Lucas says that Tracey is an accomplice to kidnapping and should be arrested immediately. Caroline and Shawn show up and Lucas keeps demanding to have Will. Austin asks Tracy why she came to Salem and she says she had to let Sami say goodbye to Will. Everyone starts arguing about Will, so Tracey takes him into Abe's office. Lucas says he is filing papers for Will, but Marlena says that Austin may or may not go to jail. Still, Kate says Lucas has the right to have his child. Roman reminds Lucas that their is still a restraining order out on Lucas and if he makes a move towards Will, he'll have him arrested. Abe tells everyone to calm down for Will's sake. Mickey gets a call about Austin's arraignment, the DA is going to press charges. Austin tells Sami that it will be okay. He swears to try and prove her innocence and will keep Lucas away from Will. Still, Mickey tells Austin that it doesn't look like he will be out on bail, which is what Sami was hoping for. The cops who are going to take Sami to death row arrive and Abe gives Sami a few minutes to say goodbye to her family. Sami tells Will that even though she'll be gone, he can talk to her and she will be able to hear him. Sami is in tears as she hugs Will goodbye, and is lead off in tears. Lucas and Kate are the only ones not effected by Sami's departure, they have smug smart-ass looks on their faces. Later, Roman learns Roberto is off the respirator and leaves to get a statement. Meanwhile, Austin and Mickey leave for the courthouse. Austin says goodbye to Will and warns Lucas this isn't over. Abe then takes Tracey down for questioning. Marlena, Will, Lucas, and Kate are the only ones left. Kate holds Will and Lucas promises him that everything will be fine. Kate decides to take care of Will, but Marlena gives her an "I don't think so!" Marlena says Will can't go to her house while Lucas is there, which is why Will will stay with her and John at the penthouse. She says at least this way Sami will know her child is safe. Lucas warns Marlena that she won't get away with this. Marlena and Will leave and Kate tells Lucas it will work out. Kate then warns Lucas not to feel sorry for Sami, because she is getting exactly what she deserves. At that moment, Sami is shoved in the van which will take her to the penitentiary.


March 26
Once again I do apologize for being so late with the summary. Everything seemed to be due this week for school!

Ali has yet another fantasy about making out with, and love to, Mike. In real life she's grabbing onto Nancy saying "Oh Mike!" Nancy wakes up and then wakes Craig up so they can both watch Ali make a fool of herself. Craig eventually wakes Ali up and she tells them both about her wonderful dream. Ali then goes to get dressed and Nancy tells Craig that they have to send Ali home. Craig refuses because he says they need Ali to sue Mike. Ali comes out of the bathroom, grabs some binoculars, and leaves to spy on Mike and Carrie. Nancy tells Craig that she is never sleeping with her again!

Mike goes over to Carrie's room with breakfast. Carrie wants to go site seeing, but Mike stops her and says that he heard on the news that there was a rock slide, they have to take a detour and she'll miss seeing the sites. Carrie says it is okay and they can do it another time. Carrie tells Mike that she loves spending time with him and not having to rush anything. She says that she knows this can't last forever, so they should enjoy it while it lasts.

Mike and Carrie hit the road and Carrie realizes they have missed their turn. Mike decides to let the people behind them pass them and then they'll turn around. Carrie tells Mike that she has an odd feeling that the car behind them has been following them. Mike tells her they'll find out in a minute, and pulls off the road.

Craig, Nancy, and Ali hit the road and Ali gives her mom a call, and they end up arguing about Mike again. They then start arguing about how Ali's mom favored her sister, Mary. Ali's mom tells her she should go back into therapy. ALi tells her mom she doesn't need one and hangs up on her.

Craig, Nancy, and Ali end up renting a different car and continue after Mike and Carrie, Craig thinks that they are heading for a Native American Trading Post. Ali's mom calls her to apologize and asks Ali to come back to New York. ALi tells her mom that she can't, the rest of her life is booked as being Mike's wife. Claire tells Ali she needs professional help. Ali tells her mom that she's removing the battery from her phone, so don't call anymore.

Carrie and Mike are still on the road and are glad that they aren't being followed. Carrie mentions how men don't ask for directions, Austin doesn't. Mike tells Carrie that it's okay to think about Austin, but Carrie says she doubts he's thinking about her. They stop at the trading post and Mike buys her a bracelet. As Mike and Carrie are about to kiss, Craig is watching through the zoom lense of a camera. He hands it to Ali so she can get the proof she needs.

At the courthouse, Lucas is bitching about Marlena taking Will, but Kate says that he will get custody of Will back. They soon end up arguing about Austin, Kate doesn't want to see him go to jail, Lucas does. Austin shows up for his hearing and Kate tells her son that she's worried about him, and says "shouldn't Carrie be here with you?" Austin tells her that Carrie has other things on her mind right now. The judge enters the courtroom and Austin is charged with aiding and abetting a fugitive and kidnapping William Roberts. When Austin is asked how he pleads, Austin says not guilty. The judge decides to remand Austin into custody, but Mickey asks for bail. However, the State objects. Austin stands up and asks to speak for himself. Austin says that Will needs him right now, and he needs to be free to help clear Sami's name. He says that Sami and Will are his family. Kate rolls her eyes and the DA enters the courtroom with news for Austin. The DA says the state is prepared to drop all charges against Austin, so Austin is let go. Mickey thanks Carson Palmer, but he says it was Sami who convinced him to drop the charges. Lucas boasts to Austin that he is going to get custody of Will and will make sure he (Austin) stays out of his life forever!

At the DiMera mansion, John accuses Stefano of doing this to his aunt and he asks what it is she has that he wants so badly. Stefano tells JOhn that all he wants is her love, but John doesn't believe him. Vivian asks them not to fight, her heart can't take it. John tells Stefano that Ivan thinks he has something to do with Vivian's condition. Stefano says that they all need to get lives instead of trying to blame him for crimes he didn't commit. John tells Stefano that he brainwashed both him and Hope ,those are crimes. John says that he turned a priest into a pawn, does he hold nothing sacred? Stefano tells John that it's apparent he didn't take his vows very seriously. John asks Stefano what he knows about his time as a priest. Stefano says that he knows he petitioned to be released from the priesthood. Once again, Vivian asks them to make peace. John apologizes and Stefano leaves so John and Vivian can be alone. John tells his aunt that he will fly doctors in from around the world to help her, but she says Lexie has already diagnosed her. John feels bad that they fought for so long, and Vivian feels bad that she can't tell John the truth. John says he won't let Stefano get away with this, and Vivian tells John that Stefano will get what's coming to him. John asks what she means and she says that she's left him something in his will. Vivian says she wishes she could help him figure out his past. John says maybe she can, he needs to know when he came into contact with Stefano. Vivian doesn't know how she can help because she thought he was dead for the longest time. John wonders who raised him, who sent him to the boarding school and seminary, how did he end up as DiMera's mercenary. Vivian says she wishes she had the answers, and then remembers that he had a nanny named Bridgett Ferrand (sp?) who could help him. John thanks her for her help. John tells Vivian that he's the only relative he has ever felt close to and he doesn't want to lose her.

Gina is driving and worrying about what Greta and Bo have found. Gina then considers having Stefano put an end to Bo for good. Gina goes to the mansion and tells Stefano that Bo has become a problem. Stefano asks if Bo has found something out about her past? Gina says no, she covered her trial. However, she says that she can't finish the paintings. Stefano tells Gina that she has to finish them before Vivian dies! Gina didn't think Vivian would really die and tells him how sorry she is. Gina tells Stefano that she'll work day and night on the forgeries, after she gets back from Europe. Gina tells him that she needs a special oil base to paint over the originals to make them look authentic, and she can only get them from a man in Naples. Stefano says they can just call him, but Gina says she must be there to verify the color. Gina tells him to just trust her and Stefano says very well, she can use his jet. Stefano tells GIna to get a move on it when John comes down the stairs and asks Hope what she's doing here?

At the hotel, Greta shows Bo the painting her mom did. Bo thinks that Hope could have done it, so he turns it over to find a date. There is no date, but the desk clerk catches them and stops them quickly. Greta explains to Bo how she almost got Mario fired and that the computer can only be accessed with a password. Greta doesn't think John was ever here and says she is relieved because she didn't like thinking about her mom and John in such a romantic place. Greta asks Bo how his conversation with "Hope" went? Bo tells Greta that "Hope" has a problem with them risking their lives. Greta says that "Hope" might be right. Bo says she also misses him, but there was a tone in her voice that . . . He leaves it alone and just says that he thinks "Hope" knows more than she's telling him. Bo sees the manager and asks him all about the painting, but he says he can't help them. Bo won't let up and demands that he tell them everything he knows about Princess Gina. The manager eventually admits that Gina painted the painting. Greta begs him to help her, but he just answers her in Italian. Bo asks if she stayed her after 1990, and Greta tells him that she needs to know what happened to her mother. The manager says he doesn't know and walks off. Bo tells Greta that he's going to get a warrant to search the hotel records.
