At the hospital, Carrie tells Mike that she feels Austin wants to take Will in just to spite her. Mike tells Carrie that isn't the case, Austin is concerned for Will's wellfare. Carrie still believes this is Austin's way of starting a family, because for some reason she is not ready to have a baby. Mike tells Carrie that starting a family is a huge decision. Carrie says that even though she loves Will, she believes Will belongs with Lucas. Carrie then says that Sami is largely to blame for Lucas problems, but Mike points out that Lucas is also to blame here. Carrie says she has to face the fact that if Sami goes to jail, she will be Will's mother. Austin asks Carrie if Will will stop her from having her own child. Carrie says she doesn't know, but she still wants to wait to have a baby. However, Carrie admits there is something else stopping her from have a baby. Carrie says that she wants to put her job first. Mike tells Carrie that her marriage should come first and she should consider having a child if Austin wants one, but she has to work it out with her husband. Carrie thanks Mike for the talk and says she feels much better. After Carrie leaves, Mike calls Ali to tell her how much he's looking forward to their party tonight.

Kate overhears Austin and Sami talking at the hospital. Sami admits to Austin that she doesn't remember killing Franco and wonders how she can plead guilty to something she may not have done. Austin says that Mickey is just looking out for her best interests to make sure she doesn't go to jail for life. Still, Sami thinks she may have a chance, but Austin tells her she's taking a big risk. Sami asks Austin what she should do. Austin tells her that is her decision, but he'll stand by her no matter what. Kate panics at first, but knows exactly how to make sure that Sami pleads guilty. Sami leaves to go see Will and Kate walks in to talk to Austin. Kate asks Austin what is wrong with Sami and Austin tells her that Mickey wants Sami to plead guilty. Kate tells Austin that would be for the best because a murder trial would only be worse. Austin tells Kate that Sami is terrified of going to prison and hopes Mickey can get her aquitted. Kate tells Austin that will never happen, Sami will be convicted if she goes to trial, and Will will lose his mother forever. Kate tells Austin that Sami needs to plea bargain for Will's sake and he should convince her to plead guilty. Kate leaves to check on Lucas

Taylor tells Lucas to make this the first day of the rest of his life. Lucas asks Taylor what she is doing here and Taylor says she is studying this in school and she took this job for money and experience. Lucas doesn't like the idea of training with someone who isn't a full therapist and wants wait until one comes along. Taylor tells him that it's her or nothing and says if he wants to get better, she is his only chance. Lucas eventually accepts Taylor's help and they proceed through Lucas' therapy, which includes walking. Lucas doesn't think he can do it, but Taylor tells Lucas that she knows he can do it if he wants it. Lucas says he does want it because he needs to rebuild his life and get his son back. Lucas tells Taylor that walking hurts, so Taylor tells Lucas to focus on Will instead of the pain. Lucas manages to walk and Kate comes in and tells him that she is impressed. Kate thanks Taylor for doing such a wonderful job with her son. Lucas asks Taylor to get him a glass of water so he and his mom can scheme. Kate tells Lucas that she's almost positive Sami will plead guilty to manslaughter. Taylor returns and Kate leaves so Lucas and Taylor can work. Kate likes Taylor because she's helping Lucas get motivated.

In the hotel room, Hope tells Bo that Sami was supposed to marry Franco, but she shot him dead in stead. Bo feels bad and blames himself for not nailing Franco when he first came to town.

They tell her of course not and Bo leaves to get them some coffee. Hope tells Greta that she's glad they are alone because they have so much to talk about.

Billie tells Roman about Greta and her involvement with the entire cage explosion scene. Roman sees the hurt in Billie's eyes and knows she went to the bayou to get back together with Bo. Billie doesn't deny it, but she can't understand how Bo could have forgiven Hope for the death of their child. Roman tells Billie that she needs to stop blaming Hope for the death of Georgia. Billie says she hopes Bo won't hate her for what she's done, which prompts Roman to ask her what she's done. Billie remembers Greta telling her about the death of Georgia, but she tells Roman that she hopes he doesn't hate her for not being able to let him go. Roman says he's sure Bo understands that. Billie cries that she'll never be able to replace Bo in her heart. Roman and Billie hug when Roman gets a call from Bo, who wants him to know he's sorry about Sami and is here for him. Roman thanks Bo and says goodbye. Billie realizes Bo is with Hope and she asks Roman why she can't get over him. Roman tells Billie that she is a beautiful and sexy woman who has so much more to live for, and they still have a lot to wrap up. Billie asks if he is talking about the ISA case, or "us." Roman tells Billie that he'll never forget what happened between them, but right now he has to focus on Sami. However, he tells Billie that they'll be time to pick things back up after Sami is cleared.

Lexie says that Celeste is with Vivian, so she'll be safe. Abe says that nobody is safe from Stefano. Later, Abe and Lexie discuss having children.

Roman and Billie arrive outside of the pub. Billie is whining about Bo, but apologizes because she knows he is going through hell because of Sami. Billie and Roman walk into the pub arm and arm, which makes Marlena uneasy. Roman tells everyone that he just spoke to Mickey and that Sami has decided to go to trial.

Bo shows up at the pub to see his dad. Bo tells his dad that he needs him to fix a Brady feast for a very special person. Shawn asks who this person is. Bo suggests to his pop that he sit down. Bo explains the entire story about Greta and Hope to his pop.

Bo goes into the main area of the pub and everyone is happy to see him. Billie takes Bo aside and asks him where Greta is. Bo tells her that Greta is with Hope. Bo excuses himself to talk with John and Marlena and Billie begins to worry that Greta may tell Hope the truth about her baby.

Roman talks with Bo about Sami and Greta. Billie butts in and tells Bo that she's concerned about Greta because Hope is so beautiful and she may intimidate Greta. Bo is confident that Hope can handle Greta. Speaking of Greta, Bo tells Billie that he has to go pick up Greta. Roman approaches Billie and asks her what is bothering her. Billie tells Roman that she feels bringing Greta to Salem was a mistake. Roman asks Billie if she is jealous of Greta.

Austin and Carrie, who are still arguing about Will and Lucas, show up at the pub with Nancy and Craig. Marlena sees that Carrie is upset and Carrie tells her that she's afraid this Will issue is ruining her marriage. Carrie tells Marlena that she doesn't feel it is right to take Will from Lucas. Marlena asks if taking care of Will will impact her decision to have her own family. Carrie says that all she knows is she isn't ready to start a family with Austin anytime soon. Marlena asks what she means, but Carrie tells her to forget she said it and she walks off. Austin tells Carrie that she seems distracted and he thinks she's thinking about Mike and the speech she wrote for him. Nancy and Craig butt in and start talking about how perhaps Titan could sponsor the charity boxing match. Carrie tells Austin that she needs to get back to the hospital to finish Mike's speech. Austin tells her after she is done they will make love all night long.

John and Marlena watch Roman and Billie and John says he noticed how close they were in Lugano. Marlena tells John that she senses he's thinking about being a priest in Lugano. John says that he wishes he could remember. Roman and Abe approaches John and they talk about the picture of John as a priest. John doesn't understand why he was hanging out with Ms. Faversham and Princess Gina. Roman says it would be impossible for him to be with Hope back then because she was in Salem.

Back at the motel, Hope and Greta continue to talk. Hope asks Greta to try and remember anything from the time she spent at Maison Blanche. Greta says she can't because it's like seeing a ghost. Hope is confused and Greta tells Hope that she reminds her of someone. Greta quickly recovers and says it must be the time they spent together at Maison Blanche. Hope ask Greta about Stefano, but she'd rather not talk about it. Greta says that if Stefano knew she was alive, he'd kill her. Hope swears with her life that she and Bo will not let Stefano hurt her again. Hope tells Greta that she's just so frustrated by what Stefano has done to them and she asks her to please help her. Hope tells Greta that she can't ask Bo for help because he needs to be there for her (Greta) right now. Suddenly, Bo shows up. Bo and Hope try to persuade Greta to come with them to the Brady Pub to meet his family and friends. Greta agrees to go, but on the condition that she can leave tomorrow for the bayou. Bo, Hope, and Greta go into the Brady House and prepare to go to the pub.

Down in the bayou, Stefano thinks Bo has found Greta and he can't let Bo find out the secret's of Maison Blanche. Bart finds a wine glass with lipstick on it, which means Bo wasn't alone. Stefano and Bart here noises and realize that someone is in the tunnel. Stefano and Bart hide and Wayne and Earl show up. They discuss Bo and the Swamp Girl, unaware that Stefano is listening in. Stefano hears them says that Bo took the Swamp Girl out of the bayou. Bart knocks something over and Wayne and Earl head to where they are hiding to investigate. When rocks start falling from the ceiling, Wayne and Earl decide they should just leave because Bo most likely took Swamp Girl to Salem. Stefano thanks them silently and says that Greta won't be alive and in Salem for much longer.
