October 5
At Nicole's place, Eric helps Nicole up and wants to take Nicole to the hospital, but Nicole refuses to go. When Eric attempts to call the police, Nicole stops him and says she's not filing charges. Eric asks why her cousin would try to rape her and Nicole says he was probably strung out. Nicole says she won't let Jay get away with this and knows someone who will take care of him. Eric asks Nicole what she means and Nicole says it was just something she muttered out of anger. Eric warns Nicole about going after someone for revenge, but Nicole says she never wants to see him again. Eric asks what happened with Jay and Nicole says that he tracked her down and wanted money for drugs, but she refused and he got abusive and tried to rape her. Eric doesn't understand why her cousin would do that, but Nicole says she doesn't want to talk about it. Nicole bends down to straighten up things and Eric sees the "N+J Forever tattoo." Eric confronts Nicole and says "Jay isn't your cousin, he's your lover!" Nicole admits to Eric that they were lovers, but she didn't want anyone to know about her past with a sleaze-ball boyfriend. Eric asks if Jay is even a drug addict, and Nicole says he is. Eric asks if he came for money or to sleep with her and Nicole tells him both. Nicole says that she wouldn't give him money, so he tried to rape her. Eric doesn't know if he can believe her. Nicole swears that she is telling the truth and she hasn't been with Jay in years, she only wants to be with him. Eric says trust is very important and that he can't believe she lied to him after he asked her if there was anything he should know the other day. Nicole cries and says she cares for him so much, but she didn't want him to know about her lousy past with men. Nicole says she wants a future with him, but Eric doesn't know if she means it or is lying again. Nicole says it was easier to lie about Jay then to answer his questions. Eric says all he ever wanted was the truth, which she didn't give him. Eric says if she lied about Jay, what is to stop her from lying about something else? Eric tells Nicole he needs to do something he did along time ago, he walks out. Nicole blames Jay for ruining her life and starts smashing things.

Jay calls the man in prison and says they have to talk in person. As he gets ready to leave, Taylor sees him and asks what happened to his face . Jay says he got into a fight and tries to leave, but Taylor stops and asks if he got into a fight with Eric. Jay says that wasn't what happened and that he went to see Nicole, but she wasn't much help. Jay tells Taylor that Nicole has messed with his head for the last time and he's returning to LA. Taylor asks if he got the money, but Jay says it doesn't matter because "he" is going to get out of prison with or without her help and Nikki will be in big trouble. Taylor says she doesn't want Nicole to get in trouble, but Jay tells her to think about her own life. Jay tells her she deserves a shot at the good life, unlike her stuck-up sister, and hopes her dreams come true. With those words, Jay leaves.

Bo and Hope are on their way to the hotel to meet Greta. Hope is excited to meet Greta and she also tells Bo about all the new talents she acquired as Gina. She also says that it almost seemed as Stefano was accepting her as Gina again. Hope admits that when she came face to face with Stefano on the Empress Express, she felt a connection. Hope then fears that maybe Gina and Rudolpho had more than a plutonic relationship. Bo tells Hope that he's sure that never happened, even if she didn't have her memory.

Billie succeeded in putting doubts about Bo in Greta's head. Greta feels that Bo deserted her for Hope just like Billie said he would. As she attempts to leave the hotel room, Billie catches her and asks where she's going and what happened to her make-up. Greta tells Billie that make-up won't change who she is. Billie says that she's just upset that Bo hasn't returned and if she eats she'll feel better. Greta reminds Billie that she was the one who told her Bo hurts others when he's with Hope, but Billie says he only hurt her. Bo calls from the car and tells Billie that he and Hope are on their way over. After she hangs up, Billie tells Greta that Bo is bringing Hope over. Billie then panics and fears that Hope may sweet-talk Greta into telling her the truth about the baby, which she can't let happen. Billie starts telling Greta how beautiful Hope is and how she is a super model. She goes on to tell Greta how Bo won't be there for her whenever she needs him. Greta runs off and when Bo and Hope arrive, Billie tells them that Greta just left. Bo goes after Greta and Hope tells Billie that for some reason, she feels this is exactly what she wanted to happen. Meanwhile, Greta flags down a truck and is about to climb in.

Stefano arrives home and talks with Rolfe. Rolfe asks about Vivian and Stefano tries to hide the truth, but he can't lie to Rolfe. Stefano tells Rolfe that he had to use the device to put Vivian into an up mood to keep her from going to the hospital. Rolfe is upset, but Stefano says that he couldn't let the doctors find the device in her tooth and Vivian would have figured it all out. Rolfe asks Stefano why he didn't get Vivian to sign over power of attorney. Stefano says he tried, but Vivian backed down at the last minute every time. Stefano fears that now that John and Marlena are involved, he may never get his treasures back. He then remembers how much fun he and Gina had stealing treasures. Rolfe is concerned about Hope's transformation back into Gina, but Stefano says he would be happy to turn her back into Gina so she can help him again. Stefano remembers back to Count Olenska's ball and "Gina" tells Stefano it all went perfectly. Stefano tells her that he wants to give her something and hands her an emerald brooch. Gina jumps into Stefano's arms to thank him. Stefano comes back to reality and says that is the Gina he wants back, the one he trained Hope to be after he took her from Ernesto. Rolfe hopes Hope never learns she was never scarred. Stefano says Ernesto certainly won't talk and the only other person who knows the truth, Greta, is dead. However, Stefano says that both Bo and Hope will pay for trying to uncover the secrets of Maison Blanche by turning Hope back into Gina again.

Roman arrives at the Kiriakis Mansion and tells Kate that he has more questions to ask her about Franco and what she knew of his immigration status. Once again, Kate tells Roman that Lucas didn't see anything that night and Sami just has to pay the price. Roman refuses to believe that and tells Kate that he knows Franco was in danger of being deported and that he knows she knew about Franco's greencard status. Kate admits that she knew about Franco's status, but not until agent Raskin told her. Roman asks her why she'd withhold that information from Sami and if she was using it to hurt Sami. Kate says that she assumed Sami knew the truth and that she didn't know that Franco was cheating. Kate says that she wasn't the person who should have been protecting Sami, he should have. Kate tells Roman that in no way is she responsible for Franco conning Sami and the only person to blame for it is Sami. Kate tells Roman that she told Sami that nobody could ever love her and Roman calls her a cold bitch. Kate says she learned from the best and then asks Roman to leave. Roman leaves and Kate says that Roman will never find out why Franco was terrified to go back to Italy. Meanwhile, Roman knows Kate is still holding out on him and now he has to tell Sami the truth.

At the hospital, Sami catches Lucas in Will's room. Lucas tells Sami that he's sorry for what he did to Will, but he won't let her go to prison for a crime she didn't commit. Sami asks him what he means and Lucas tells her that he knows she isn't capable of killing someone in cold blood and he knows what she's going through. Sami accuses Lucas of trying to lay his guilt trip on her, and then she says she wishes she had run into him instead of Franco because she would have killed him and no jury would have convicted her. Sami tells Lucas that he doesn't deserve to Will's father and she's taking steps to revoke is rights as a father. Sami then takes delight in telling Lucas that if she is unable to be with Will, Austin will have legal custody of Will. Lucas refuses to allow that to happen and calls her a lying two faced bitch. Lucas says that he can't believe he was going to tell her what his mom did. Sami's eyes widen and demands Lucas tell her what Kate did. Lucas covers quickly and says that his mom hired a lawyer because she knew she'd do something like this. Sami tells Lucas that he doesn't deserve to be Will's father and she'll make sure Will hates him for the rest of his life. Lucas tells Sami that she deserves much worse then rotting in jail and says that he now knows why Franco was sleeping around on her. Sami says she'll kill Lucas and he tells her to go ahead, it is only one more murder on her record. Sami tells Lucas he is so right and then begins to strangle him.

Nicole is angry that "he" sent Jay to spy on her and she says it is all his fault. Nicole calls the man in jail and tells him that Jay tried to rape her. The man calls Jay a bastard and says he only sent Jay to get money to help him get out on parole. Nicole laughs and tells him he won't get anything from him and he can rot in jail as far as she is concerned. Nicole then hangs up the phone. Nicole looks at a picture of her and Eric and tells herself that she just can't let Eric go.

Eric runs into Taylor at Titan and she is concerned about him because she can see he was in a fight. Eric tells Taylor he's had a lousy day and he just found out that the woman he was involved with has been lying to him. The two talk about relationships and Taylor tells Eric that without self-respect and trust, there is nothing. Eric tells Taylor that's pretty heavy for someone so young and she tells him that she's had to grow up pretty fast. Nicole shows up at Titan and runs into Taylor. Taylor tells Nicole that Eric is in the photolab and then storms off when Nicole gets an attitude. Nicole walks into the lab and hears Eric wondering what else Nicole lied about to him. Nicole tells Eric the one thing she never lied about was how she felt about him.

At the Penthouse Grill, Mike and Ali are dancing as Craig and Nancy watch. Craig and Nancy see how sad Carrie is watching Mike and Ali dance. Carrie is still bothered that Ali took the credit for her party, and Austin senses it. Austin asks Carrie if she likes Ali and Carrie says Ali is very pushy and doesn't give Mike any space. Austin thinks Ali is crazy about Mike and he thinks Mike likes her. Nancy asks her husband if Austin can be so dense that he doesn't realize how Carrie feels about Mike. Craig tells Nancy that denial isn't just a river in Egypt. Craig then tells Nancy he has a new scandal to involve Mike in and Carrie will run to his defense, but it will be too late this time. Mike returns to the table and admits that he is glad Ali chose a low key way to celebrate his birthday. Ali returns from the bathroom and unfortunately, Mike is beeped. Mike goes to check in with the hospital and Craig asks Ali to dance. Nancy has no problem, so Ali dances with Craig. Nancy sits down next to Carrie and starts telling Carrie that she doesn't think Ali is right for Mike because she stole Carrie's party idea and lied to Mike. Carrie tells Nancy it's no big deal and to let it go. Carrie switches the topic and tells Nancy she's going to schedule the charity boxing match Austin suggested and that she could use her help. Nancy is touched and says she knows Carrie suspected them of setting up Mike. Carrie says that is water under the bridge and she'd like her to be her assistant. Nancy accepts the offer and then hopes they can be best friends. Meanwhile, Austin thanks Mike for being there for Carrie and that he hopes one day he'll have a relationship like he and Carrie have, and perhaps it could be with Ali. Carrie asks Austin and Mike what is going on and Austin says he was just thanking Mike, and then he leaves to pick up the tab. Mike thanks Carrie for celebrating his birthday with him and how happy Austin seems. Carrie makes a snotty remark about Ali, but then apologizes. Mike tells her it is okay, but this is the best for both of them.

In Will's hospital room, Sami chokes Lucas. Roman rushes in and saves Lucas. Lucas wants Sami arrested for attempted murder, right here and now. Lucas tells Roman if he doesn't do it, he'll call Abe. Roman screams at both of them to shut up and then wheels Lucas back to his room. Lucas wants Sami arrested, but Roman tells him that he provoked Sami and also violated the restraining order against him. Roman tells Lucas if he has a brain in his head he will shut up and stay away from Will. Lucas says his mom is right about him, he's in total denial about his lying, evil, bitch of a daughter. Roman returns to see Sami and asks her what the hell was going through her head. Sami says she was just upset after seeing Kate and Lucas started provoking her. Roman asks when she saw Kate and Sami tells him she went to the mansion to get some clothes. Roman tells her she should have done that and Sami says she knows because now she knows what happened. Roman asks Sami what she remembers and Sami says she remembers being furious with Franco and storming to the house to confront him. Sami says she went in, got the gun, and waited for him to show up so she could shoot him. Sami cries and Roman hugs her and asks if that is what she remembered, or if it is what Kate told her happened. Sami says that Kate told her, so it must be true. Sami admits that she doesn't know what happened. Sami says she doesn't know why she gets so crazy, like she did with Lucas, and like she must have done with Franco. Sami says if she had only given Franco a chance to explain, maybe things would have been okay because he did want to marry her. Roman tells Sami he wishes that was true. Sami asks Roman what happened, but before he answers, Austin shows up to see Will. Austin asks Roman what is wrong and Roman tells Austin he knows why Franco wanted to marry Sami.

Meanwhile, Lucas realizes his mom was right and Sami deserves to spend her life in jail. He says as soon as Sami is out of Will's life, he'll have a chance to bond with his son.

Nancy thanks Carrie for inviting her to Mike's party tonight. She also tells Carrie that she wouldn't be surprised if Mike and Ali came in together in the morning. Carrie refuses to believe that though. Meanwhile, Ali tells Mike that she has a special birthday present for him at her place. Mike tells her that he'd love to come to her place and asks what his gift is. Ali says it's easy to unwrap and is the gift that keeps on giving, and then she kisses him.

Greta hops in a man's truck and Bo throws himself in front of the truck to stop it. The truck hits Bo and knocks him unconscious. Greta panics and jumps out of the truck to check on Bo. Bo is all right, he just got the wind knocked out of him. Bo begs Greta to stay, so she stays. Bo apologizes for not returning sooner. He tells her that both he and Hope want to help her, but Greta tells him to forget about her and go back to Hope. Bo tells Greta that he doesn't want to forget about her and then asks if Billie said something to her to make her believe otherwise. Greta remembers what Billie said to her and Bo asks once again if Billie said something to upset her. Greta dodges the question and says that Billie helped her leave the bayou and that she knows Billie loves him. Bo says he loved Billie once, but Hope has always been his true love. Greta asks if that was true even when Billie was pregnant, which sends Bo for a loop because he didn't know she knew about the baby. Bo admits he made a mistake, but Hope is who he loves. Bo asks Greta to return with him to see Hope. Greta agrees, but then she says she's going back to the bayou. Bo tells her that this isn't just about Hope, it's about her as well. Bo reminds her that he promised her a life without pain and he intends to keep it. Greta doesn't say anything and Bo asks her if she believes him.

In the motel room, Hope accuses Billie of somehow forcing Greta to leave to cause problems. Billie tells Hope she wouldn't make Greta run away because she helped Bo talk Greta into returning to Salem, and then she gives Hope the short verion of the story that went on in the bayou. Billie takes delight in telling Hope that Bo wouldn't be here if it wasn't for her help. Hope remains cautious and tells Billie that she suspects she is using Greta to cause problems between her and Bo. Billie just laughs it off, but Hope is serious and tells Billie that she is sick of being blamed for every little thing that goes wrong in her life. Billie tells Hope that she is to blame, she's to blame for her losing Bo and her baby. Hope says the death of her baby was tragic, but it's not the reason she isn't with Bo. Hope tells Billie the truth is that Bo doesn't love her and she has to accept it and move on. Billie tells Hope that she knows all about Bo's love for her, but she doesn't think he'll feel the same passion for "Gina." Billie starts saying how much she looks like Princess Gina and she suspects that Bo was disappointed with the change. Hope laughs and says that she is not Gina, she is Hope. She says that Bo understands her search for the past, but he won't understand her attempts to sabotage her search for the truth by sending Greta away. Billie screams she didn't have anything to do with Greta running away, but Hope doesn't buy it and wonders what it is happening to her. Billie says that she did not hurt Greta, Bo did by breaking his promise to protect her. Suddenly, Bo and Greta walk in and Hope hugs Greta and strokes her hair.

Marlena tells Sami she loves her and will always believe in her and stand by her.

Nancy goes to Carrie's office and lets her know that Ali has taken Mike home. Nancy goes on and on about how it's not appropriate for Ali to hang all over to Mike and then says at another hospital where Craig worked, one of his colleges got involved in a terrible sex scandal. Nancy leaves and Rose, the head nurse, stops by. Carrie tells Rose that Mike is saddened that she's leaving the hospital. Rose says that she's making a list of people she thinks are qualified within the hospital to fill the position. After Rose leaves, Carrie hopes Ali isn't on the list. However, Carrie feels that Mike will hire someone older with more experience. Meanwhile, Craig tells Nancy that the head nurse is retiring. Nancy realizes that that Ali is seducing Mike to get the job. Craig tells Nancy that they need to change focus and make sure Mike hires Ali, the woman he's sleeping with, as head nurse. Nancy says the only problem is that Mike won't hire Ali and they aren't sleeping together. Craig says that is where they come in. Nancy still doesn't think the idea will work because Carrie won't stand for Ali being with Mike. Craig tells Nancy that is where she comes in, she must convince Carrie that Mike would never fall for Ali.

Mike goes up to Ali's place and pours some champaign for them. Ali tells Mike that she doesn't think Carrie likes her much because of her feelings for him. Mike says that Carrie likes her, but Ali says she doesn't think Carrie wants anyone on staff to date him. Mike says that she's just being protective of the hospital's reputation. Mike says they can see each other, they just have to keep their relationship low profile. Ali says their relationship will be the best kept secret, and then she excuses herself to change into something more comfortable. She returns in a sleek black body suit and feeds Mike some home baked goods. Ali hints to Mike that one day, she'd like to be head nurse. Mike tells Ali that he'd like to hear her plans for outside of work. Ali tells Mike she'd like their relationship to move to the next level. Mike tells Ali that he has feelings for her, which surprises her. Mike tells Ali that he likes being with her a lot, and then he kisses her. Mike's cell phone starts ringing and it's Craig. Craig learns Mike is at Ali's and he says he just wanted to tell him about Will's test results. Will has a tiny fever and Mike becomes concerned and says he'll be right over. Ali tells Mike that she won't let him leave unless he promises to return tomorrow night for a special dinner. Mike agrees and then leaves. After he's gone, Ali wonders if there isn't any reason that she can't be head nurse and married to the chief of staff.

Craig tells Nancy that Mike is with Ali, but he's coming to work to check on Will. Nancy says perhaps they can use this to their advantage after all.

Austin goes to see Sami and tells her that he has bad news about Franco. Sami tells Austin to spit it out, so he tells her that Franco was an illegal-alien and only wanted to marry her because he was going to be deported. Sami freaks out and runs off. Will begins to cry and Austin tries to calm him down.

Carrie finds Austin and says she's ready to go home, but Austin says he needs to stay here and be with Sami, then he leaves to find Sami.

Nancy tells Carrie that she has good news. Nancy says Mike isn't falling for Ali because he was at her place, but used Will's fever as an excuse to leave her and come to the hospital.

Austin finds Sami and Carrie overhears Austin tell Sami that she deserves to be loved, after Sami tells him she doesn't deserved to be loved.

In the motel room, Hope tells Greta that for so many years she thought she went through horrible surgeries, but it wasn't her. Hope tells Greta that she's so sorry. Greta turns her back on Hope and asks her to leave. Greta says she doesn't want anyone's pity and asks Hope to leave again. Hope wants to ask Greta questions, but Billie stands up for Greta and asks Hope to leave. Hope tells Greta that she may not have endured the physical scars she did, but she did endure the mental torment and that's why she feels sorry for her. Hope tells Greta that they are both victims of Stefano's schemes and they can help each other by bringing down Stefano. Greta looks at Hope and says "Your not Hope, your someone I used to know." Greta has a flashback of Hope reading Evangeline (sp?) to her at Maison Blanche while she was bandaged. Greta says she remembers her voice and presence there and how she would read to her, play her favorite music, hold her hand, take care of her, etc.... Greta says sometimes she was there, sometimes she wasn't. Hope asks if she was there the whole time and if she knows what she was doing for Stefano. Greta says she doesn't remember anything about her and Stefano, she just remembers that she was very kind to her and she would comb her hair with a beautiful comb. Hope realizes the comb is the one from Lugano and she asks Greta if she remembers a compact. Greta remembers the compact, but tells Hope she doesn't remember anything about it. Hope starts asking if she knows anything about Lily Faversham, Count Olenska, but Greta doesn't remember anything. Greta is tired and Hope offers to stay with her, but Billie says she'll stay with Greta. Hope tells Greta that she'll see her tomorrow and then she and Bo leave. After they are gone, Billie thanks Greta for not saying anything about the compact. Greta tells Billie that she remembers Hope and that she was a very nice and compassionate woman. Billie says Hope only cares about two things, herself and Bo. Billie tells Greta the only way to have Bo in her life is to get rid of Hope. Meanwhile, Bo tells Hope that they will bring down Stefano by finding the secrets of her past, together.

After Shawn D. leaves, Alice asks Hope if she and Bo will get back together. Hope says that things are complicated. Lily gives Hope a call to see how she is doing. Hope asks if she's coming to visit her in Salem and Lily says she will. Hope asks Lily to let her know when she'll be coming so she can make arrangements. Lily says she will and they say goodbye. Lily says it's so horrible that Hope/Gina lives in the same town as that awful Vivian Alamain. Back at Alice's place, Hope tells her gran that she learned that she was never scarred during the cruise of deception, a decoy named Greta was in the cage when it exploded. Alice is confused and Hope tells her that Stefano deliberately took her and transformed her into Gina. Alice asks about the birthmark and Hope tells her gran that she hasn't figured that part out yet. Alice hopes that solving the mystery will bring Hope and Bo closer, but Hope asks her gran not to get her hopes up. Hope says she and Bo still have a lot of unresolved issues and she still feels bad about the loss of Billie's baby. Alice tells Hope that it's not right for Billie to keep blaming her for the death of her baby. Hope says it also goes back to when Bo slept with Billie after he lost faith in her. Hope says she doesn't know if she and Bo can ever get back what they had. Alice tells Hope that there is something she needs to know, Franco is dead and Sami is charged with the murder. Hope is shocked, but returns to the former topic and tells her gran that she must solve her past before she can make a commitment to Bo. Hope tells Alice that she needs to go see Bo and Greta and then shudders at the thought of Stefano learning that Greta was alive.

Billie leaves the motel room and Hope shows up to see Bo and Greta. Bo tells Hope that he made it clear to Billie that they are over and his future is with her (Hope). Hope says right now she just needs to figure out her past. Bo says he knows that, and he has an idea to stop Stefano.


October 9
At the townhouse, John and Stefano are still talking about Vivian. Stefano says he cares very much for his aunt. John doesn't believe him and says that he believes his aunt has something he wants. Ivan returns with Celeste and they tell Stefano that Vivian will be at the hair dresser for hours. Stefano knows Vivian has gone to see a doctor. Ivan tells John that he has some papers for him and leaves to get them. Stefano asks what papers and John says he's taking control of Vivian's finances. John decides to go to the hospital to see Marlena and Stefano decides to go see Kate. Ivan stops Stefano and says that Celeste needs to talk to him. John leaves and tells Ivan to keep Stefano from the hospital. Meanwhile, Celeste tells Stefano that she knows he set her up on the train to make it appear she stole Vivian's jewelry. Stefano asks why he'd do such a thing and Celeste says she believes he wants Vivian to trust nobody but himself. Celeste says she also thinks he wants something from her. Stefano says he is right, he wants to take her and Lexie out to dinner. Celeste say no, so he calls Lexie and invites her anyway to force Celeste's hand.

In Marlena's office, Marlena tells Vivian that she and John want to help her. Vivian is puzzled and says she thought she was here to help with John's surprise party. Vivian asks for a drink and Marlena gives her one. Vivian starts to space off and Marlena asks her when she began to have her mood swings. Vivian says that Celeste and Ivan think it happened when she had dinner with Stefano months ago. Marlena asks about her relationship with Stefano. Vivian checks to make sure their talk is in the strictest of confidence. Marlena says it is, but she'd like to tell John. Vivian says that is okay as long as it doesn't go any further because she's about to tell her a huge secret about Stefano. Vivian tells Marlena that she and Stefano are going to take Titan from Kate. Marlena asks Vivian if she can trust Stefano. Vivian spaces out and tells Marlena that Jonsey warned her not to trust anyone. Marlena asks Vivian if she is dreaming about Jonsey, or hallucinating. Vivian says she is not insane, Jonsey is acting as a guardian angel. Vivian becomes angry because she thinks Marlena is trying to prove her nuts, so she begins to walk out. Marlena says she doesn't think she's crazy, she just thinks she needs help. John shows up to take Vivian to her office and Vivian says that is sweet. Marlena asks her not to leave and Vivian asks if she wants to have her committed? Vivian said it as a joke, but when Marlena says nothing, Vivian realizes they think she's insane. Vivian doesn't think she can trust her own nephew when Jonsey's spirit shows up. Vivian starts talking to Jonsey as Marlena and John stare at her.

At Marlena's penthouse, Mickey tells Sami that she should plead guilty to manslaughter. Sami believes she honestly killed Franco. Mickey leaves and Sami tells herself that she has ruined both her and Will's lives.

At the hospital, Ali is remembering her kiss with Mike when Nancy shows up. She tells Nancy that she's sorry Craig ruined her plans with Mike, but Ali says they'll pick up where they left off tonight. Ali leaves and Nancy tells her husband that it would have been so much easier if Mike and Carrie gave into their feelings fot one another, but unfortunately they are so damn saintly. Nancy says they have to make sure ALi beds Mike and then becomes head nurse. Craig tells Nancy that he just thought of a problem, Carrie won't let Ali become a candidate for head nurse. Nancy chuckles and tells Craig that Carrie can't contradict an order from the COS.

Nancy and Craig talk with Rose, the current head nurse, and tell her they believe Ali would make an excellent head nurse.

In his hospital room, Lucas and Kate vow to take the secret about Franco's murder to their graves. Ali comes to check on Lucas and Kate hides. Lucas is down and Ali asks if he is ok. Lucas says he is fine and Ali leaves. Kate returns and tells Lucas to stop acting so damn guilty. Lucas asks his mom what will happen if they are called as witnesses in Sami's trial, but Kate tells Lucas that Sami won't go to trail. Lucas asks how she knows that and Kate says Sami isn't stupid, she'll make a deal to avoid the death penalty. Lucas reminds his mom that Roman won't give up his search, but Kate thinks that Roman will never learn the truth.

Mike talks with Lexie about Ali. Lexie isn't very supportive and asks Mike if Ali is what he really wants. Ali butts into their conversation with some information on a patient. Ali happened to be reading a medical journal and tells Mike something she thought he might find interesting. Mike tells her that he's impressed with her medical knowledge. Ali asks if they are still on for tonight and Mike says he wouldn't miss it.

Carrie has another hot dream about Mike when she wakes up. Austin asks her what is bothering her, but she says she just has a lot on her mind. Carrie tells Austin that she was thinking about setting up the boxing match he suggested, but Austin tells her now may not be the best time. Austin tells Carrie that they need to have a discuss. Austin informs Carrie that if Sami is convicted of murder, he will become Will's legal guardian. Carrie asks Austin what he told Sami and Austin says he accepted. Carrie feels that Lucas should raise Will, but Austin disagrees. Austin realizes Carrie doesn't want to raise Will. Carrie says that's not what she meant, she just didn't foresee this. Austin tells Carrie that he knows she isn't ready to have a family and realizes that she doesn't know if she ever will be ready. Carrie says that is not fair, but Austin realizes that Carrie doesn't want to have a family. A hurt Austin walks out on his wife.

Sami shows up to see Will, who is doing much better. Sami tells Will how much she loves him, but she may not have a lot of time left with him. Sami hopes he turns into a handsome young man and says Kate and Lucas can do nothing about it. Sami tells Will to remember all the good times they had together and she knows he'll have more good times with Austin. Lexie comes in to give Will some medicine and Sami thanks Lexie for what she's done for Will. Sami talks to Lexie about how she didn't meet her mom until she was an adult and she asks if she thinks Will would let her into his life when he's all grown up. Lexie tells Sami that she's already formed a bond with Will and tells her to look at her own relationship with her father. Sami says it's a shame that Will's father won't be able to give him that kind of love. Austin walks into the room and says he will. Lexie leaves and Austin asks Sami how her meeting with Mickey went. Sami tells Austin that Mickey wants her to plead guilty to manslaughter. Kate stops by Will's room and hears Sami tells Austin that she can't remember killing Franco, so how can she plead guilty to a crime she may not have committed?

Carrie shows up at the hospital and Nancy tells Carrie that Ali is campaigning for head nurse. Carrie says Ali isn't qualified and Nancy says Mike will probably agree. Nancy leaves and Mike shows up and asks Carrie how she is. Carrie is upset and wants to talk with Mike about her problems. Carrie tells Mike about the fight she had with Austin. Carrie is puzzled by the fact that she can't give Austin the one thing that will make him the happiest.
