MEanwhile, BRandon finds Sami in tears after her encounter with Victor. Sami sees him about to walk off, but tells him to wait. He says it is none of his business what is bothering her, or why she's even here. Sami accuses him of trying to make her jealous by dancing with Jen. Brandon says he is here with Jen because she is sexy, beautiful, and fun. Sami, however, says Jennifer can't give him what he wants, which is happily ever after.

Suddenly, Victor shows up to see Nicole, but Nicole says Jack just invited her to dance and she drags him out onto the floor with him in order to avoid Victor.

In the ladies room, Collin corners Jennifer. He tells her that sending her away in Ireland was the last thing he wanted to do, and he was close to being head over heels in love with her. He also knows she felt something for him, and he wants her to know that she did matter to him. Jen accuses Collin of having the largest ego in the world, so Collin dares her to kiss him and see if there are sparks. Jen tells Collin that he is the most arrogant man she has ever met, and he is the last man she'd ever get involved with!

Sami and Belle hang out in Salem Place, and Sami tells her that soon she'll get Shawn back. Belle says she doesn't want Shawn back. Sami says she knows her better, she knows she still loves him. Sami tells BElle that Jan is going after Shawn, and if she doesn't go after him, she will lose him! Jan and Shawn show up, and as Jan puts on a show for Shawn's sympathy, Sami tells Belle how Jan is working the situation because she has played all these games before. Sami tries to get Belle to play games too and talk to Shawn. Belle decides to take Sami's advice and go for it.

Jan talks to Cynthia about how sweet Shawn has been, and how she will be there for him like Belle hasn't been. MEanwhile, Collin talks to SHawn and begins asking questions about Jan and if he got Jan pregnant. Shawn says he didn't hurt Jan on the island, but he did get her pregnant. Collin tells Shawn that Jan needs counseling, but Shawn says she won't go back and he doesn't know how else to help her. Collin says secrets and lies never help, they only cause more trouble. Later, Belle approaches Shawn, but Jan swoops in. Belle refuses to keep letting herself get hurt and says goodbye to SHawn.

Phillip apologizes for being a jerk to her and asks her out on a date sometime. She says sure, he can buy her a coffee right now! Chloe and Mimi are amazed how easy this is.

At the DiMera mansion, Abe comes to see Lexie and demands to know what in the hell is going on with her. He says he heard she is changing her plea to guilty, and he asks if this means she realizes what she did was wrong? Lexie says the only thing she did wrong was get caught. Lexie says Cameron is working on a deal for her if she pleads guilty. Abe knows she is not defending herself to keep people from digging and uncovering secrets. Lexie says she is guilty and she has to move on with her life. Abe says if that is the way she really feels, then he has a proposition for her. He asks her to turn her back on her father, but she says no. LExie says her father loves her and her son, and he turned her back on both of them! Abe tells her that if it weren't for her father, they wouldn't be going through this pain, and she wouldn't be facing charges! Lexie says she ran because she had no choice, the court ordered her to give up her baby and she wouldn't do that. Abe says the court didn't order her to give up custody until after she ran! Lexie is furious that everyone has betrayed her. Suddenly, Cameron shows up for payment, but Lexie refuses to pay her for ruining her life! She accuses her of setting this whole thing up. Abe questions Cameron, who says the order she got looked official, she had no idea it was bogus. Abe doesn't believe Cameron at all, and he tells Lexie that her father tried to get her to run, so when will she turn her back on him? Abe tells her that until she washes her hands of her father, he's washing his hands of her. Abe tells Lexie that it is over, and walks out. Lexie summons Rolfe, because she knows Rolfe was behind this. Cameron decides to make herself scarce, and Lexie slams Rolfe for what he did to her. Rolfe says he gave her her only option to keep Isaac. Rolfe says all is still not lost, but Lexie refuses to go through with his evil plan to kill Isaac. Outside the DiMera mansion, Abe runs into Cameron and tells her to just fess up and tell the truth, but she says she is bound by attorney-client privilege. She then gloats and tells Abe once Lexie's criminal issues are resolved, she'll be moving onto her divorce!

In Paris, Doug and Julie have breakfast with Bo, Hope, and Isaac. Julie asks Hope if she is any closer to finding out who the father is?

Bo says they are planning to check out Gina's townhouse today and they hope to find more answers there. BEfore heading out, Hope and Bo decide to call home and talk to SHawn. They call home and talk to SHawn. Hope asks about Jan, and Shawn says she is doing better. Hope is glad she is getting better, because they need to talk about the situation with her living with them. Shawn says they don't have to get into this now do they? Hope says they will talk about it when they get home, but Jan can't live with them forever. Shawn asks about his dad and grandma and grandpa, but not Isaac. This hurts Hope, so she tells him that Isaac would like to say hello to him. Shawn says that this call is probably costing them a fortune and says he'll see Isaac when they get home. Hope hopes that in time Shawn will come around. Later, Bo and Hope head to GIna's house. Bo tells Hope how Gina drugged him here, and when he came too, she was taking care of him. He says whatever DiMera wanted her to do to him, she couldn't do it. Hope begins to have more memories, and she remembers the drug she was supposed to give Bo to turn him into a pawn. Hope tells him Stefano's plan for him, and then she remembers cleaning the mime make-up off of Bo and making love to him!


May 2
I'm building off of NBC's summary for today due to an ear infection which has left me VERY hard of hearing (I just can't keep up with the show fast enough to type everything, as I rely more on listening than watching)

In Paris, Hope remembers making love to Bo when he had been drugged with a mind control potion and was a mime. Bo is unsure, but Hope says she remembers, his love saved her. She says for a time she was no longer Gina, and he was himself and not under the influence of Stefano's drug. As she remembers, it also dawns on both of them that Bo could possibly be Isaac's father. They are thrilled about this, but Bo is wary, not sure if the memory is legitimate. Hope says it makes sense, and that is why he had odd flashes when he held Isaac, his subconscious was trying to tell him that he was holding his son. Hope then realizes as long as they continue to use the name Lexie gave him, he is still partly hers. They decide to rename him Zach. Bo is still unsure about Hope's memory, so she decides to jog his. As they begin to make love in the townhouse, Bo remembers. The two make passionate love to celebrate the revelation.

In Salem Place, Jan continues to try and worm her way into Shawn's heart, but it's obvious that he only has eyes for Belle. When he wants to go talk to Belle, Jan flips out. Jan apologizes and says that he and his family are just so important to her, and she has only been a burden. Jan tries to buy some more time to live at the house, but Shawn can only promise that he won't kick her out right away. He suggests she try and patch things up with her own family.

Meanwhile, Sami tells Belle that she should make love to SHawn to hold onto him, but she refuses. Sami then moves onto her backup plan, and convinces Belle to buy some suggestive clothes to get Shawn's attention. Guys totally go gaga when they see Belle, and she's mortified by reactions from Mimi and CHloe to her outfit so she goes to change. Later, Belle's furious when she sees Philip cozying up to Cynthia and wonders if Chloe is equally as enraged. Mimi and Chloe can't tell Belle that they've enlisted Philip's help and that he's spying on Cynthia to get the goods on Jan. Shawn is about to move in to talk to Belle, but the sight of Mimi talking to her stops him. He overhears Belle admit she didn't mean to hurt Jan's baby and how terrible she feels about it. Shawn is affected and realizes that he's been too harsh on Belle. In the meantime, Phillip makes inroads with Cynthia and convinces her that CHloe isn't for him, she is. She tells him to call her, sooner rather than later! As the two cuddle, Brady is sickened. Later, Brady yells at Philip for hanging out with Cynthia and hurting Chloe again.

Elsewhere in Salem PLace, Sami runs into Victor and is forced to hand over the blackmail pictures of Kate, as well as the Kate and Roberto hospital confession. When she asks for the tape from Las Vegas, Victor says no. Sami is frustrated, but Victor insists on keeping it to make sure no copies of the pictures of Kate or the other tape ever surface. He doesn't trust Sami and she is stuck and very displeased.

At the Wesley's, Nancy and Craig try to find out where Cecelia Marin is staying in New York. Craig manages to fake out the school by claiming he is her personal physician and must treat her throat so she can be in top voice, so they give him her hotel address. The two pack and get ready to head off to try and convince her to give Chloe another chance to audition for the master class. Chloe comes home, and Nancy claims they are going on a romantic trip. However, after they leave, Chloe gets a call about a limo rental in New York, and sees Cecela's address written on a piece of paper.

Chloe thinks her dream is over, but Brady says they will offer more master classes. Chloe says she just can't stand not knowing what is going on, so Brady tells her to call them. CHloe says she's tried, but they aren't answering their cell phones or her voicemail messages. Brady decides to take her mind off of this, and tells her to grab her purse because they are leaving. Brady takes her out for ice cream, but CHloe is still a gloomy-guss about her future as a singer. Brady lectures her, and she apologizes for being so mean to him when he's been so supportive of her.

In New York, Craig and Nancy arrive at Cecelia's suite, and hear her inside throwing a fit.

NAncy talks Craig into posing as a masseur with her. Cecelia is a diva with a tude, a bad one. Nancy sets up some music and warms the oils while Cecelia changes into a robe. Nancy does NOT like Cecelia at all. Craig works his magic on Cecelia, which ends up making Nancy jealous. Cecelia invites Craig on to be her tour masseur, and he remembers why they are here and asks Nancy to turn on the music. Nancy puts on a tape of Chloe singing, and Cecelia criticizes the singer and says she has no idea what she is doing. Nancy goes nuts and says that is her daughter, she sings like an angel, and they came here to try and get her an audition for her masters class! Cecelia realizes she has been set up, and Craig has to hold Nancy back. Cecelia begins screaming at them to get out, and screams for help, only to lose her voice. Craig reveals he is a doctor, and helps Cecelia get her voice back. Cecelia and Nancy try to patch things up, and Cecelia realizes how much Nancy loves her daughter. She says if they had only written to her and told her that her daughter was sick, they could have avoided all of this. Nancy thinks they have gotten Chloe an audition, but Cecelia says she said she would have rescheduled IF they had written her, but she won't now after what they have done!
