On the pier Stefano and John are arguing about Roman. Stefano accuses John of wanting Roman to die because he's insecure about Marlena's feelings for him (John). John tells him that is not true, Marlena was only granting Roman his dyeing wish. Stefano says he saw the way Marlena was gazing into Roman's eyes and says it's possible that Marlena has realized she loves Roman instead of him (John). John tells Stefano he's had enough of him for tonight and walks away. Stefano gets the call from the nurse and both Stefano and John go to the hospital.
John and Stefano arrive at the hospital. Eric tells Stefano that his cure didn't work and now Roman is going to die. Doctor Marcus tells the family that it looks like Roman won't make it through the night unless they somehow find the correct dosage and drugs to give Roman. Of course, Stefano knows exactly what drugs Roman needs to survive. Stefano claims he had to use these same drugs to save his life and he writes down the drugs Roman needs. The doctor doesn't want to trust Stefano, but Stefano points out that this is the only way to save Roman's life. Stefano reminds Marlena of her promise to forgive him and asks her to please believe him. Shawn asks why they should believe anything he says, but Caroline wants to try it. A nurse notifies them that Roman's blood pressure is dropping and Marlena says to do it. The doctor refuses to administer the drug so Marlena says she will do it. Marlena prepares the drug and administers it to Roman, and it works! Marlena and John leave the room and decide to get some fresh air. Eric tells Stefano that just because he brought a cure back for his dad that they will forgive him then he's dead wrong. Eric also tells Stefano to stay away from his mother. Stefano says if there is anyone he should protect his mother from it's John! John and Marlena go out to the terrace to talk. John tells Marlena he loves her, but he has to know if she still wants to marry him or is she falling in love with Roman all over again.
At Jonsey's place, Jonsey is chasing Vivian around the house trying to make whoopee to her. Jonsey throws Ivan out so he and Vivian can get down to business.

In prison Jack asks Herb to get a message to Jen about Trent/Travis. The message is "Danger, Trent is Travis, send Mickey." T.C. returns to Jack's cell and asks him to hand over the laptop computer he has. Jack says he traded his laptop for phone calls awhile back, but T.C. doesn't believe him.

Susan is strolling thru Salem Place (hurrah, we have it back!) with little Elvis. She sees Stephano, Kristen and Lexie from a distance at Johnny Angels and decides to head the other way. She runs into Celeste (in her cat-in-the-hat look). Tells Celeste she doesn't want to hurt her feelings but she wants her to stop confusing her and leaves. Celeste sees Steph & Co. and prances up to them and she proceeds to rail out Stephano (as Lexie rolls her eyes). Celeste and Stephano argue over Lexie and Celeste says she knows from experience...she gave years of her life to Stephano as well as her love and look what it got her. Kristen acts like a total bitch during this time. (She whines "Oh, please...you're making me cry"). Steph tries to assure Celeste that they can SHARE Lexie, but Celeste wants no part of THAT. Steph & Kristen leave and Celeste & Lexie argue over Stephano. Celeste says he will end up hurting her.
Later, Susan runs into Shawn and Caroline (out buying some new clothes for Roman). She talks about Marlena's "pickle" having to choose Roman or John. She says she is rooting for John (then realizes she has put her foot in her mouth) so she says Marlena will win either way...she excuses herself and she and Elvis leave. Susan later runs into John. John plays with the baby as Susan calls him a hero. Watching John and Elvis, Susan is sad and begins to cry. She tells him he is a fine man and is sorry for all of the trouble she caused. John tells her it was all Kristen and Stephano's fault. Kristen is watching this all from a distance and daydreams that it is HER, John and Elvis strolling through Salem Place and that they are all so happy together. She joins them and asks Susan if she can hold the baby. Susan refuses and abruptly leaves. Seeing she is upset, John tells her she must learn there are consequences for all of her actions. She tries to explain which leads to apologizing to begging to crying. Sorry Krissy, none of it is working on John. They rehash all the rotten things she did and John tells her they are finished, over...he loves Marlena. Steph walks up and proclaims that Marlena loves Roman now. John gives him one of those patented "rotten egg smell" looks, tells him it is none of his business and leaves. Back to this story later.
Earlier in the show, John wakes up in bed next to Marlena. She was so exhausted, she fell asleep as soon as she hit the bed. He tells her he was going to sleep on sofa, but wanted to wake up with her. He tells her he wants to get married ASAP and they share a long kiss. He tells her they must tell Roman the truth soon, because neither of them want to hurt him anymore. He reminds her of the letters Roman wrote forgiving them. They also talk briefly about the jungle adventure. He gets out of bed (fully dressed) to go take a shower. (I assume they are at the penthouse?) Eric shows up and Marlena decides to go with him to the hospital and John is going to the police station to see Abe (something about Stephano's pardon). Eric is upset at John and Marlena being together and they argue. She tells Eric she cannot live a lie, even though a part of her will always love Roman, she is in love with John. Eric is afraid the truth will kill Roman. Their argument gets a bit heated and she basically tells Eric that it is none of his business...she, John and Roman will deal with it. He says not to count on his support and leaves. Later, Marlena and Eric are at the hospital. As she watches Roman, Marlena has (faked) flashbacks of the good times with Roman. She remembers how they first met (him protecting her) and his (first) proposal and her acceptance. She steps outside, where she and Kim talk. M tells her what is going on and how she is torn. Kim ends up telling her to follow her heart. John shows up and M fills him on Roman and he says when he awakes, they will tell him the truth.
Sami is getting ready to go see her dad then to work (Sami works???) Kate tells her she has a birthday party planned for Will, but Sami says she is way ahead of her and has already made plans. They get in a little argument and Kate tells her she needs to concentrate on helping her dad, not breaking up C&A. Earlier in the show, Carrie and Mike rush to Roman's room (joined by Austin). Eric, Shawn, Caroline, Abe and Kim (along with a bunch of Dr.'s and nurses) are all there celebrating his recovery. Roman asks where Doc is. Abe tells him she was exhausted and is at home getting some well deserved rest. R asks about Stephano and Abe explains about the cure. Roman questions further, but Mike interrupts and tells them all he needs his rest. Sami shows up to see Roman and tells Mike she'll be in for work in a few minutes. Don't bother Sami...Mike fires her on the spot. He says he doesn't trust her and leaves. She goes into see Roman and invites him to Will's party. He can't but she promises to bring Will by later. He tells her that he and Marlena are getting married soon (as everyone rolls their eyes). Later, Sami is getting ready for Will's party and Austin is there. She keeps referring to Austin as Will's daddy and takes pictures of them. Finally, Austin has had enough and rakes her butt over the coals. She tells him that she isn't worried, cause his marriage will self-destruct and she'll be there for him. Lucas shows up (Sami refers to Austin as Will's daddy again and this doesn't set well with Lucas). Lucas jumps her as Will calls him "daddy" and Sami winces. Lucas asks Austin to take Will to the nanny and he and Sami argue. He tells her to "shut up and listen to him". He says he is leaving and taking Will with him. Sami panics and Lucas says he MEANT to the park (I think they planted a seed here). He threatens (no, he GUARANTEES) he will take Will away from her if she doesn't straighten up soon. Later in the show, Carrie and Mike meet at a restaurant...seems Austin called them both to meet him there. Austin shows up with a gift for Mike from him and Carrie. It's a pocket watch (Mike says just like the one Dr. Tom had). They offer it as a gift for all he has done for Roman. They talk about Sami, then Austin and Carrie sit and kiss in front of him (how rude!)
ON THE PIER
Near the end of the show, Celeste is wandering the pier and runs into Abe. She is upset over Lexie and begins to cry. She says that Lexie years for Stephano's love and approval and she is worried about her. He assures her that Stephano's true nature will emerge soon. Abe comments that the Stephano/Lexie situation is not unlike the Marlena/Sami situation, as all parents and children seek the good in the other. But he is afraid that neither Stephano or Sami will EVER change from their evil ways. Later, Celeste goes to see Susan and to warn her that the baby's father is coming soon. Celeste is terrified, but Susan starts rejoicing, dancing, singing and slinging Celeste around.
BACK TO KRISTEN/STEPHANO
Kristen asks Stephano how to get John to love her again. He basically says "It's your problem" and leaves her. He gets out his cell phone and talks to someone about preparations for "the child". Kristen (eavesdropping) says she will NOT let her take Susan's child. She says that by saving the baby from him, she can make John love her again and starts to leave. Stephano grabs her by the arm and stops her. He says she will tell NO ONE anything...and the credits roll.
At the motel room, Jen asks Travis to please let her go, her daughter needs her. Travis says all she cares about is Jack and that her future is with Peter now. Travis says he won't to jail for anyone! Jen tells Travis that Mickey can get him a deal to stay out of jail but Travis says no deal. Jen starts saying that her family will come for her and she won't help Travis if he doesn't help her, so he jumps her and knocks her out with either.
At Jen's place, Mickey, Alice, and Maggie are wondering why they haven't heard from Jen yet. Suddenly Travis shows up at the door! Travis tells them all that he saw Jen at the airport and asked him to come tell her family she had to chase down a lead. Alice asks if she said where she is going but Travis says she didn't. Travis tells them he has to go and Mickey thanks him for coming by. A Mrs. Saunders show up and takes Abbey to her dance recital. Stacy finally shows up and says she has to give Jen a message. Mickey says they can give the message to Jen but Stacy says she was told only to give it to Jen. Alice and Maggie try to convince Stacy to give them the message, they will make sure Jen gets it. When Stacy learns that Mickey is there she says he is in the message. She looks for the message but she lost it! All she can remember is "Danger . . . Send Mickey." Mickey thanks her and says he will check it out.
Mickey goes to the prison to see Jack but T.C. tells him that Jack is in lockdown. Mickey tells him that he has permission and T.C. lets him by, but listens in on the conversation. Mickey tells Jack that Jen is safe and she's checking out a new lead. Jack tells Mickey that Jen has to know about Travis and Mickey asks who Travis is? Jack says it was explained in the message but Mickey tells him Stacy lost the note. Jack tells Mickey that Jen's neighbor is really his old cell mate Travis, he was working for Stefano! Mickey says that it was Trent that told them that Jen is okay. Jack realizes Travis has kidnapped Jen.
Back at the motel a tied and gagged Jen tries to free herself. When Jen finally gets free, Travis returns and stops her from leaving. Travis tells Jen that he told her family that she is safe and is checking out a lead.
At Marlena's place, Susan is telling Celeste that the King is coming for his baby tonight. Sister Mary shows up and learns that Celeste had a premonition that the King was coming back for his baby tonight. Sister Mary scolds Celeste, but Celeste said she only had a premonition the baby's father was coming, not that he was Elvis. Susan and Mary argue and Mary says that Elvis is dead dead dead! Susan goes upstairs to freshen up and says if Elvis shows up they are not to tell him he's dead, it would hurt his feelings. Susan comes down in this awful dress and Mary tells her it's interesting, Celeste says she's stunned. Susan says all of the sudden she gets a tingly feeling all over. Susan tells them that she is going to fix a couple peanut butter and banana sandwiches for Mr. Elvis Presley. Mary says she will make the sandwiches and Mary and Celeste leave.
In Salem place Kristen tells Stefano that she will tell John of his plans to kidnap Elvis. Stefano says she will do no such thing but Kristen thinks that saving Elvis from him may redeem herself in John's eyes. Kristen paints this lovely little picture of how John will love her and they will raise little Elvis, and says she has a right to the child. Stefano laughs and tells her he has the most rights to the child, because he's the father! Kristen thinks Stefano is joking but he says it is not a joke. Stefano tells Kristen that he had to masquerade as Elvis to get Susan's cooperation. Stefano says he wants the baby eventually, but not now. He wants to see the baby tonight but needs Kristen's help. Stefano says he can't take the baby now because he has made a pledge to be good, when the time is right then he will take him. Kristen argues with Stefano to let her raise the baby because she is a better mother than Susan. Stefano tells her he believes she would be a better mother but he can't make his move now. Kristen tells Stefano she will help him, but only if he agrees to help her later, which Stefano agrees to. Stefano gives Kristen a peanut butter and banana sandwich to give to Susan, it's drugged and she will go to sleep. Kristen doesn't think Susan will trust her but Stefano says she can't refuse this sandwich.
Kristen goes to the penthouse to see Susan. Kristen tells Susan she wants to make amends and to be friends. Kristen tells Susan she brought her a sandwich. Susan says she was going to make one of these but Dr. Evans was all out of peanut butter. Susan sits down and eats her "delicious sandwich." Susan says they can try to be friends, but only if she's just not mean mean mean to her again. Susan offers Kristen half of the sandwich but Kristen says no so Susan continues to eat the sandwich. Kristen picks up Elvis and says he's gotten so big. Susan starts to become hot and sleepy but she can't go to sleep because big Elvis is coming real soon. Kristen tells Susan she'll wake her up when Elvis gets here so Susan leaves to take a nap. Kristen tells Elvis that his daddy is coming to see him.
Celeste has a premonition that something big is about to happen, something involving Susan and the father of her baby. Back at the penthouse Stefano comes to see little Elvis. Stefano tells the baby that he is going to have a wonderful future. Stefano cuts off a lock of his hair when Susan wakes up and screams you!
