On Wednesday, Hope is alone on the boat preparing for her upcoming wedding [meaning going through stuff and tossing things out -- whatever that has to do with preparing for a wedding] when she comes across an old video of Bo and Billie. Unable to resist, Hope takes a look. Hope is surprised to see how happy and very much in love they were. Although she tries not to let it bother her, Hope can't help but wonder if unattached Billie could be a threat. [Hope has a heart-to-heart with Alice, who is not sure that inviting Billie to the wedding is such a good idea.] Meanwhile, Kate is not convinced that Billie has moved on in her life. She still has those unresolved feelings for Bo. [Kate is surprised to hear that the man in Billie's life is Franco Kelly. He stops by to show Kate his portfolio, and ends up visiting with Billie and going down to Victor's stables, where he tries to teach her how to ride a horse. Things get steamy as Franco tells Billie how to mount, and helps to show her how to move in the saddle. Bo (who came to see Victor) and Kate walk in at an inopportune moment. Hope arrives shortly afterwards to deliver the wedding invitations. Kate is not certain that Franco is the man for Billie, but she is impressed with his work, including a striking photo of Franco with blue eyes. He explains that sometimes he wears contact lenses during photo shoots to achieve a different look.] Jack finally gets the information from Daniel that will prove to Jennifer that Peter is a DiMera through and through [he forces Daniel to put it in writing before he pays off his debts]. Jack immediately passes the information along to Jennifer [who was about to spend a final evening in Paris with Peter before they leave on their cruise], and of course she doesn't want to believe it. Jack tells Jennifer that he has proof, and then he brings in Daniel. [Daniel tells her every word is true. Peter tries to discount Jack's attempt to discredit him, but he's sweating bullets and wonders if his time is up.] Vivian demands that Ivan get her out of prison *now* [and she tunnels over to Ivan's cell because she can't stand to be in this place any longer.] Before Ivan can explain the situation to Vivian, Ivan's new cellmate gives an exciting twist to the situation [he insists on escaping with them, or he'll turn them in], with some interesting information about someone in Salem [sounds like he knows someone there.]
