Kate is surprised that there is a new shoot and Nicole mentions that Sami probably forgot to tell her. Kate says that Sami no longer works at Titan and she is running the "New Faces" campaign. Nicole asks Kate if she's fired, but Kate says no. She tells her that as long as she stays silent, she'll have a job at Titan.

Eric tells her that he knows she didn't want people to know they were sisters and asked Nicole to lie for her. Taylor tells Eric it's about time he knew the truth about Nicole. Eric refuses to let Taylor speak and starts saying how he never thought she'd lie to him because they were getting so close. Taylor asks Eric why he thinks Nicole decided to tell him the truth about them being sisters now and Eric says Nicole was trying to prove her honesty. Eric tells her not to keep turning this around and blaming Nicole because if she hadn't told him they were sisters, than she (Taylor) would still be standing here lying to him. Taylor says she is not the liar and what Nicole told him is not how it happened at all.

Nicole arrives at Titan and is about to enter the photo lab, but she's stopped by another employee.

Ali and Mike are taking a walk in the park. Mike is very quiet, he's thinking about his argument with Carrie.

Nancy suggests to Carrie that they play some pool, but Carrie doesn't feel like playing. However, Nancy coaxes her into a game and questions her about her fight with Mike. Nancy suggests Carrie talk to her because it's not good to keep feelings bottled up. Carrie says she told Mike he shouldn't be dating Ali. Nancy becomes upset and tells Carrie she wishes she hadn't done that. Carrie asks why and Nancy says that she obviously regrets it. Carrie says she did sound like a jealous girlfriend, but then strikes that from the record. Nancy tells Carrie that she knows she's devoted to the hospital and is only worried about its and Mike's reputation. Carrie says that if Ali becomes head nurse, Mike could be accused of favoritism. Nancy slyly mentions that she's already thought about that. Carrie tells Nancy that Mike is more involved with Ali than anyone realizes. Nancy tells Carrie that Mike is too smart to fall for any of Ali's tricks. Still, Carrie still can't stop worrying about Mike. Nancy tells Carrie that she needs to back off and give Mike some space.

In the Horton kitchen, Hope is grating some cheese for Bo's chilli. They talk about Greta and how sad it is that John doesn't remember Greta. Bo tells Hope that he would like to get Greta's scars fixed, but Hope is more concerned for Greta's safety. Little do they know that Wayne and Earl are watching them from the bushes, but they don't see Swamp Girl. Earl suggests maybe Billie could help them, but Wayne thinks that is highly unlikely. Earl mentions that Bo's chilli smells good and they watch Bo and Hope eat it. Hope starts telling Bo about all the fancy food she ate in Europe with Lily. Bo chuckles that if he was with her he would have embarrassed her because he doesn't know which fork to use. As they are about to end up in a food fight, they hear something outside. However, Hope attributes it to Halloween pranksters. Still, Bo can't help but wonder if it could be Wayne and Earl. Bo and Hope begin talking about Princess Gina again and Hope tells Bo that she wants to go back to Europe to find out about Princess Gina. Bo says he'd love to go with her, but they need to make sure Greta is safe first. Bo asks Hope if she minds if they wait awhile before returning to Europe and she doesn't. Bo is happy and says they will find out the information together. Bo mentions all Hope's personality changes when she was playing Gina and hopes she won't revert to them when Lily comes to Salem for a visit and that she won't let Gina take over and prevent them from having a future together. Hope tells Bo that her Gina habits won't take her over, but she's not sure if they can have a future together. Bo says they can reclaim the life they once had, even if they Billie can't let go of her anger. Bo says he wants to ask Billie for a divorce, but he didn't think she could handle this news right after Georgia's death. Hope says that Billie will never get over it and will play the victim till the day she dies. Bo tells Hope that if she can get past her guilt about Georgia's death, they can have a future together.

At the Kirkiais mansion, Roman tells Billie that she has to let Bo go just like he let Marlena go. He tells her that if she loves Bo, she should want him to be happy with Hope. Billie laughs and says if she can't have Bo than neither can Hope. Roman tells Billie that this unrequited love she has for Bo has turned into hate for Hope. Roman tells Billie she needs to move on, but Billie screams she can't when she has to relive Georgia's death! Roman asks Billie what in the hell she's talking about. Billie says she just meant every time she sees Hope she remembers the argument with Hope that caused Georgia's death. She then starts telling Roman that Hope is trying to make Bo hate her (Billie) to absolve her own part in Georgia's death. Roman becomes angry and tells Billie that Hope isn't the only one to blame, she didn't force Billie into a car and run her car into a ditch. Roman says Hope does take some responsibility for Georgia's death, which Billie says means her daughter didn't die completely in vein. Roman tells Billie that her hate for Hope is going to eat away at her until there is nothing left. Billie says she'll never stop hating Hope and she'll never stop loving Bo. Roman tells Billie what she needs to do is divorce Bo and move on, her marriage was a sham as is. Billie says it is still a legitimate marriage and if Bo wanted a divorce he would have asked for one by now, so there could be a chance. Roman says Bo would have told her that by now if it were true, but Billie says he's been mesmerized by that witch Hope. Billie says it's been a long night and thanks him. Roman says he was hoping they could have more nights like this, but obviously they can't if she keeps obsessing about Bo. Roman leaves and Billie tells herself that she can't let Bo and Hope learn the truth about Georgia. She realizes she has to bury Georgia's casket and who can help her. On his way out, Roman runs into Kate and he tells her that Billie needs some serious psychiatric help getting over Bo and her hate for Hope.

Mike thanks him for his input, but he hasn't made his decision and wants to give everyone a fair chance. Mike tells Craig that Carrie is afraid how it will look if he gave Ali the job. Craig says that Carrie is a little over-concerned because he'd never let personal feelings get in the way of doing what is best for the hospital. Later, Ali tells Mike that she's going home because he's been acting strange all night. Mike apologizes and convinces her to stay. Mike even tells her that Craig wants him to appoint her as head nurse. Ali says she's concerned about that and still thinks she should pull out of the race. Mike once again tells Ali not to do that.

Bo tells her to forgive herself, but Hope says she can't because she saw the look on his face when he learned the baby was dead. Hope says she caused Billie to go into labor, but Bo says he is responsible as well because he didn't pay attention to Billie. Still, Hope can't help but wonder what if she and Billie hadn't fought that day, perhaps her, Billie, and Georgia would be together as a family. Bo says that is not true and if it weren't for Stefano and Kate's manipulations, they would be together. Bo says he can't imagine his life without her, and Hope feels the same. Bo asks Hope why are they apart then? Hope tells Bo that it's not just the baby that is standing in the way, it is the fact that he made love and a commitment to Billie.

Billie apologizes for accusing her mom, but she's just so upset right now. Kate says she knows that and that is why she has to let Bo be happy with Hope. Billie refuses and says that Hope is the reason Georgia is dead. Kate tells Billie that they both know that isn't the truth and she should tell Hope that she's sorry for blaming her, but she doesn't need to tell Hope how and where the baby died. Billie says she can't do that because Hope ruined her life. Kate asks her to let Bo go, but Billie says if she can't have Bo then she'll make damn sure Hope doesn't have him either.

Vivian tells John that he doesn't know how much that means to her. John promises her that he can count on him. Stefano warns Vivian not to trust John, because this is the nephew who let her be arrested in Franco and didn't lift one finger when she had to turn her fortune over to the police. John says they weren't close then, but he wants things to change. Stefano tells Vivian that John is only doing this out of his hatred for him. Vivian asks if that is true and John says some of it, but he wants to make up for being a not-so-perfect nephew. Stefano asks John when the last time he told his aunt that he cared for her.

Taylor tells her sister that she's helping mom now that she's got a job working for Kate Roberts' son. Nicole asks how she manages to get that job and Taylor tells her that some people can make it by being honest and working hard. Taylor tells Nicole that Eric is the type of guy who likes people for who they are, and if she keeps lying, she'll end up all alone.

Austin and Carrie run into Eric on their way back to their apartment. They tell him they are sorry about Nicole. Eric tells them that it's refreshing to see them because they don't keep secrets from one another. Austin and Carrie invite Eric in and he tells them how he wants to have a relationship based on honesty like they do, which makes Carrie feel guilty. Carrie tells Eric that he's lucky he found out about Nicole before making a commitment to her. Austin then adds that if he hadn't found out about Sami's lies, he could be married to her now and Carrie could have ended up with Mike. Eric wonders if keeping a secret that big could be justified, but Austin says not if you love the person. Eric also tells them that Nicole also lied about Taylor being her sister, but she said it was Taylor's wish. Austin asks Eric how he really feels about Nicole. Eric says he misses her, but he doesn't know if he can trust her. Austin tells him that if her feelings for him are real, than what they have is worth fighting for. Eric thanks them for the advice and leaves. Carrie feels guilty about lying to Austin and remembers her vows to him and decides that she can't lie to him any longer. Austin and Carrie get ready for bed and Carrie tells him they have to talk about something important. Carrie tells Austin that she is ready to start a family. Austin tells her this makes him happy and she tells Austin that she's glad. Carrie wants to start now, but Austin says they should wait till tomorrow because this decision deserves a special beginning.

Back at Nicole's place, Eric shows up. Nicole pulls him inside and kisses him. She failed to shut the door and Taylor, who returned for her scarf, sees them.

At Stefano's, Celeste signs the power of attorney papers and Stefano rubs it in John's face. Stefano looks at the papers and then asks what they hell is going on. Vivian smiles like a Cheshire cat and Stefano asks her if she really means this. John asks what is going on and Stefano hands John the contract. John is shocked to learn that his Aunt gave him power of attorney. Stefano tells Vivian that he hopes her nephew doesn't let her down. John tells Vivian that perhaps she should go home to rest, and Celeste agrees. They leave, but not before John hands Stefano a piece from his chessboard and says "check." After they leave, Stefano vows to not let John get away with this.

Rolfe learns what happened and Stefano tells him that he is still in control of Vivian's moods. Rolfe tells Stefano that he was not supposed to use the device for this long and now each push of the button could be the one that kills Vivian. Stefano says if only he could change Hope into Gina now. Rolfe says he's been working on the program, but the satellite isn't in place yet (????). Stefano tells Rolfe that he has no choice but to move onto plan B for Vivian. Rolfe asks what plan B is and Stefano writes it down and lets Rolfe read it. Rolfe laughs and says it's brilliant.

Stefano watches Vivian and John on the monitor as they argue about Stefano. Vivian becomes exhausted and Stefano fears she may die. Vivian excuses herself and leaves. John looks around the place and says Jonsey had an amazing collection. Stefano swears that he'll never let John get his hands on the townhouse or his treasures. As he listens to John and Celeste discuss Vivian, Stefano tells them that he has a big plan for Vivian. Upstairs at the townhouse, Vivian sees Jonsey again and tells him that she thinks Stefano is falling for her. Jonsey becomes angry and tells her that she will be sorry.

At the Horton house, Bo tells Greta that Abe has put out an APB on Wayne and Earl. Greta tells Bo that she's lucky Hope and Mrs. Horton were here to save her. Bo says he wishes he could have seen Mrs. H crack a lamp over Wayne's head. Greta asks Bo where he went and he tells her that he went to see Billie about a divorce, but never got to talk to her about it because Billie was at their daughter's grave, which confuses Greta. She tells him that Billie is stronger than he thinks, but Bo doesn't agree. He tells her that tonight was the first time he and Billie grieved for their daughter and he couldn't make her suffer the loss of their marriage. Greta tells Bo that he can't put his life on hold for Billie. Bo feels it's a small price to pay because if he had been there for Billie, he could have saved them both from this pain and suffering. Greta tells Bo that it wasn't his fault he wasn't with Billie when she lost their daughter. Bo asks what she means and Greta says that things happen they have no control over. Still, Bo still feels guilty, as does Hope. Bo says seeing Billie tonight freed him of some of his guilt, he just wishes Hope would get over her guilt. Bo says he can't change the past, but Greta says she can help him change the future. Bo tells her that there is no way she can help. Greta says that it seems if Billie can't have a future with him, she's going to make sure Hope doesn't have one with him either. Bo doubts Billie is that mean. Greta tells Bo that she has to tell him something she should have a long time ago. Billie tells Bo that she only lied because Billie had been her friend. She tells Bo that Billie lost the baby in the bayou. She tells Bo that the grave they stumbled on down there was Georgia.

At the cemetery, Hope listens in as Wayne and Earl tell Billie that they lost Greta thanks to Alice and Hope. Billie says she can't risk Greta exposing her secret about Georgia. As they talk, Hope realizes that Billie lost the baby in the bayou. Wayne tells her that things will be better for her now that Georgia is close to her mom. Wayne and Earl leave and Hope steps out. Hope stands behind Billie as she kneels and prays to God to find a way to bring her and Bo together again. She says that by Erlene sending Georgia to Salem, she gained a way to get Bo back in her life. She also says that she's more sure than ever Bo will never forgive Hope because she's the reason she lost her child. Hope turns Billie around and tells her "like hell I am!" Hope tells Billie that she's heard enough of lies and can't believe she put Bo through hell. They end up in a huge argument about Bo and who he really loves. Billie says that if Bo really loved her than he wouldn't have let Franco come between them and he wouldn't have pledged his love to her (Billie). Hope tells Billie that when Bo learns what she did he'll want nothing to do with her. Billie thinks Hope is talking about sending Wayne and Earl after Greta and she tells Hope that Bo still won't want to have anything to do with her because she killed their baby. Hope laughs and says she knows she lost her baby in the bayou. A look of terror washes over Billie's face. Billie tells Hope that she is still responsible because she went to New Orleans to tell Bo about the amnio only to find him out in the bayou with her. Billie says she was lucky she went to labor near Erlene because she could have died, but she probably would have liked that. Hope says that is the difference between them, she doesn't want a relationship based on other people's pain. Hope also realizes that Greta must know the truth. Hope tells Billie that she's lost Bo this time and she has nobody to blame but herself. Billie asks Hope what she's going to do and Hope slaps her. Billie calls Hope a bitch and Hope tells her that is nothing compared to the pain she's put her, Bo, and Greta through. Hope tells Billie she doesn't give a damn about her anymore and when she gets finished telling Bo, he won't give a damn about her either. The show ends with Billie groveling at Georgia's grave realizing she's lost Bo.
