At Austin's place Sami keeps wondering why she's having memory flashes of Marlena being angry with her and asks Lucas to tell her. Lucas tells her it's best that she remember on her own, but Sami refuses to quit until she remembers everything that went on with her and Austin. Sami then tells Lucas to be quiet so she can try to remember on her own, and she recalls everyone in Salem yelling at her, Carrie, Marlena, and Caroline, but she doesn't understand a word they are saying to her. Lucas tells her she should just let it go, but Sami says she thinks he does know what is going on, and says she will ask Austin when he comes home to tell her the truth. Once again Lucas tries to convince her not to tell Austin, and Sami says for a best friend he sure isn't helping her. Lucas tries to convince her that her subconscious doesn't want her to remember past mistakes, and Sami says "So I did do something wrong!" Sami says she will asks Austin to tell her what she did unless Lucas fills her in. Lucas says if she asks Austin to tell her what she did she will throw away her chance to be with Austin forever. Suddenly Austin returns and asks them what is going on. Sami remembers Lucas' warning, and tells Austin that nothing is wrong.
Mike takes Carrie home, and runs into a cheery Lucas in the hall. Mike says he doesn't trust his half brother, and gives Carrie a hug before leaving.

Out in the hall Austin asks Carrie if she's had a good time tonight, and Carrie says she guesses. Sami then calls Austin to come back in and says the waters cold ????
At the Brady Pub Laura shows up to see Caroline, but Lisa the waitress tells her that Caroline is in bed. Laura sits down to have some tea when Lynn shows up. Lynn tries to give her her pills, but Laura refuses to take them. Maggie then shows up to sit with Laura. Maggie sees that Laura is upset about something, and Laura tells Maggie she had a terrible dream about what happened during her disappearance but can't put the pieces together because Lynn gave her a sedative. Maggie suggests Laura have a talk with Marlena, and Laura thinks that is an excellent idea. When Laura can't contact Marlena Lynn tells her that Dr. Evans would prefer she takes her pills. Laura tells Lynn she is a doctor and knows what is good for her, and excuses Lynn. Caroline comes into the pub and then tells Laura and Maggie that Marlena is missing, she was surprised they didn't know.

Susan has on a garlic necklace which Kristen asks her to remove, but Susan says it's to keep her safe from the vampires. Kristen says they aren't vampires, and that if she doesn't keep quiet Stefano will take her away just like Marlena and then burn down Graceland. Susan says oh no I'm so scarred, when John comes in. John asks what she's scarred of, and Kristen says she's just afraid of everything. John says he needs to go join the search party, and when Susan asks what the search party is for he tells her Belle's mother has been kidnapped. Susan thinks Stefano has kidnapped another woman, and when John says I hope you never have to meet Stefano Dimera Susan accidentally blurts out she already has. Kristen says Susan's just confused, and Susan than says she just meant she's met a lot of evil people in Salem. Susan then leaves to fold some laundry, and John says he's going to take off.

Billie goes into work and Bo is upset that she is working so soon after her stabbing. Billie says her night in jail made her realize she must make use of all the time she has. Bo tells her once this charade is over everything can get back to normal, but first he has to find a way to keep everyone safe. Billie asks him how he's going to keep Shawn D and Hope safe, and Bo says he's sent Shawn D. to a Dude Ranch out of state, but will need her help keeping Hope safe. Billie says she'll do anything she can to help Hope, and Bo tells her he knows she will. Kate then comes to see Billie and is relieved that she got off on the charges, but is upset to hear she was stabbed. Billie asks Kate if she caused any damage with the company, but Kate says not to worry about that now that the charges have been dropped. Billie then says she wants to setup a photo shoot for Hope and Franco, far far out of Salem, but it must look like it was Kate's idea. Billie says that she could use the time to try and win Bo over for good, and Kate thinks it's a wonderful idea. Billie says they need to leave town today, and Kate says she'll do everything she can to help her.
Franco tries to make Hope realize Bo and Billie are in love and are getting married, but Hope refuses to believe that and won't give up until she learns the truth. Hope is sure that Bo wanted to tell him something about Billie's arrest, but he didn't. Hope is determined to find out why Bo didn't arrest Max for planting drugs in Billie's purse. Hope decides to have a little talk with her friend Max at the Snake Pit, and when Franco wants to tag along she tells him that this is something she must do alone.
Hope goes to the Snake Pit to meet Max and says she has some information that could put him away for a very long time. Hope says he saw him selling drugs to Billie, but will overlook it if he gave her his boss' name. Meanwhile Bo has also shown up at the Snake Pit, and manages to distract Hope so that Max can slip away. Hope and Bo argue over the situation, and Bo says he has everything handled, and says he's sending Shawn D to a Dude Ranch. Bo then realizes if Max tells King Hope came after him King may go after Hope so he leaves to try and stall Max. Bo finds him and manages to convince Max to keep what happened between them.

Laura barges into the DiMera Mansion and yells at Kristen that she is going to tell John everything. Laura knows that Stefano and Peter are alive and she helped them kidnap her! Kristen panics and tells Laura to get out, but Laura says she's not leaving until she tells John everything. Laura goes into the living room and Kristen plots to lock Laura up with Marlena when John comes down and asks Kristen who she was talking to. Kristen says Laura is here and is talking nonsense, but John wants to talk to her anyways.
John goes in to see John, who assures her that Marlena's abduction was all his fault, he didn't protect her well enough. Laura tells John that Marlena loves him and wonders if he talked to Marlena about it before she disappeared. John says he didn't so Laura says it's time the truth came out, Laura tells John that Kristen helped Stefano kidnap Marlena. Laura tells John that Kristen helped Stefano and Peter kidnap her and somehow erased her memory. Kristen asks Laura if she's taking her pills, and Laura says no. Laura yells that if John ever wants to see Marlena again he has to force Kristen to tell him the truth. Kristen swears she doesn't know where Marlena is. John is unsure who to believe, but Kristen manages to make him believe her over Laura. (Note: Through this whole Susan was listening in and learns that Kristen is Stefano's adopted daughter and that Marlena is the woman John is looking for, and Marlena is Belle's mother.)
John tells Laura he's sorry, but he believes she's just confused. Lynn then shows up to give Laura her medication, and Kristen says this is why she is upset, she needs her pills (Marlena learns on the spy-cam that Lynn is involved with Kristen).

Carrie finishes her shower and then she talks to Mike about Sami's possibility to get her memory back, and Mike says he thinks she will, it's just a matter of when. Mike gets out of the shower and Carrie comments how good he looks. Suddenly Austin shows up and finds Carrie with Mike, who is shirtless. Mike assures her that they just went for a run and forgot a shirt. Austin says he doesn't want to interrupt them and when Carrie asks him to join them for breakfast he declines, but says Mike's sure making himself at home. Carrie wonders why Mike is here so much and Carrie says he's been a supportive friend to her. As they hug Mike comes in an suggests that he eat breakfast at the hospital.

Jen apologizes and then she is more than happy to sign the petition on Jack's behalf. Jen promises to calm her mom down and then she leaves. Afterwards Lynn tells Kristen that Laura is having Peter's body exhumed, and Kristen screams out "No she's going to ruin my life!" Vivian and Ivan run into the foyer to see what's wrong. Kristen is pacing around screaming about Laura and tells Viv Laura is going to dig up Peter's grave. Kristen tries to contact Stefano but he can't be reached. When Vivian suggest they let Laura exhume Peter Kristen tells them Peter isn't in that coffin (Ivan faints). Kristen says that if Peter's grave is dug up people will ask questions and they will assume that Kristen played a part in arranging Peter's "death", which she didn't. Susan sneaks downstairs and listens to Kristen and Vivian talking about how they can stop Laura from digging up Peter.
Back at Jen's place Laura and Mickey are still discussing exhuming the grave and the legalities about going about it. Jen returns home and Laura says she has something to ask of her. Jen is annoyed that Laura suggests that Peter isn't dead and they get into a huge fight. Jen tells Laura that she needs to find someone who can help her with reality, and Laura tells her that she's in denial because Peter is alive and Kristen kidnapped Marlena. Laura says Kristen is as evil as the rest of her family, but Jen refuses to listen to her mother and goes upstairs to call the prison about Jack. Mickey says without Jen's signature he doesn't know how to get the body exhumed. Laura pleads with Mickey to find a way to get the body exhumed and says he knows her better than anyone and knows when she is or isn't crazy. Mickey tells her she needs to calm down and Laura says she knows he's thinking she's nuts. Laura thought at least he would believe her, but she doesn't care and asks Mickey to do it. Mickey tells her he'll do what he can.

Austin asks her if it's Hope, and Billie says yes, but this time she's not stepping aside, she's going to fight for him. Austin doesn't want to hurt Billie, but he asks her if she think she really has a chance with him, or is she fooling herself. Billie asks him what his problem is, and Austin says he's just so upset because Carrie is so unhappy and maybe he's not the right guy for her, maybe Mike is.

Lucas asks how long she's been able to do this, and she says he learned about it just this morning. Sami says she's going to show Austin when he gets back, but Lucas doesn't think she should tell Austin about this right now. Sami says that over the last couple of days it seems like he doesn't want her to get better, and this news is important to her. Lucas says that maybe she should wait till she can take a few steps, and she says that if she doesn't tell Austin she'll feel deceptive, and that's not natural to her. Sami does say it seems natural to Lucas, and asks if Carrie doesn't want to be with him because he is manipulative. Lucas just says he's an analyzer and analyzes the situation and says what he sees. Sami apologizes and says she didn't mean to attack him, and Lucas says he just believes that timing is everything and she needs to trust him.

Laura says she just hopes to have proof from a very good source, and Jen says she's getting her hopes up over nothing because Kristen is just such a good person. Laura leaves and Jen asks Mickey if he's encouraging her mothers delusional fantasies. Mickey just says he hopes that she will realize Peter is dead and she'll seek the counseling she needs.
Mike shows up at Jen's place and everyone goes to see the new car. Laura comments how nice Carrie and Mike look together, but Jen says Carrie's in love with Austin.
