Lucas is shocked to learn Sami is back. Lucas asks her what she remembers, and Sami says the last thing she recalls is her warning Austin not to drive his car, and she remembers the accident, but nothing else. Lucas asks her if she remembers Austin, and Sami says it's getting clearer, and she thinks Austin and her are in love and are living together. Lucas asks her if she remembered how she got him, and she said they schemed together, no big deal. Lucas tells her it's a very big deal, she was in a serious accident. Sami says she remembers the hospital, and that she can't walk. Lucas helps her to stand up and get back into the chair.

Sami refuses to believe that Austin would do something like that, but she is sure Austin loves her. Lucas tells her she's living in a fantasy world (Hello you are too Lucas) and he's not going to let her ruin his plan. Lucas tells Sami he's paring up Mike and Carrie in hopes that Austin will give up on Carrie, and he can snatch her from Mike. Sami says it sounds like a good plan, but Lucas says she has to keep pretending to have lost her memory. Sami says she doesn't see the point because her life is the way she wants it so she doesn't care what he does with Carrie and Mike. Sami says when Austin comes through that door she will tell Austin everything. As they argue about it Austin comes in and asks what they are fighting about.

Suddenly John and Abe show up, and John says all he needs is one lead on Marlena to figure everything out, but the most important clue is on the Sofa behind him!
