Austin came to sit with Will and Carrie came to catch up on some work. Nancy and Craig both know that Carrie is here to see if Mike returns from Ali's.

Austin and Carrie talk about the charity boxing match and Austin tells Carrie that he's happy to be back in the ring and he's happy to be working with her again. He also says that he's happy that they are going to take care of Will if Sami has to go to jail, because it's a load of his mind. Carrie drifts off and begins thinking about work. Carrie tells Austin that she is thinking about who is on Rose's list for head nurse. Austin tells Carrie that he doubts Mike will be returning tonight. Austin leaves to check on Will and Carrie decides to go to her office. Austin sits with Will and reads him a bedtime story. He tells Will that he and his aunt Carrie love him and will take very good care of him.

At Ali's place, Ali, who is dressed like a sexy nurse, brings Mike some dessert in bed. Ali says she this is her hospital and she is head nurse, so she will give him his medication, which is strawberries in chocolate. After dessert, Ali gives Mike another shoulder massage. Ali tells Mike they make a great team and she'd be his head nurse any day. Mike says that with her body, there is no other nurse on his list. Mike starts talking about the requirements for his head nurse and the special skills she'll need. The two end up kissing and go at it again. Afterwards, Mike tells Ali that he really should get going because he has to work on his speech for tomorrow, but he definitely wants to do it again. Mike gets dressed and tells Ali that they should keep their intimacy a secret. Mike leaves and Ali says that Craig was right, why shouldn't she have Mike AND the head nurse job.

A nurse at the hospital calls Craig, who is in bed with Nancy, to give him some test results and he overhears that Mike is there. Craig becomes worried and decides to give Ali a call. Craig asks Ali how it went and Ali tells him that her night with Mike went better than she hoped. Ali says she shared a passionate evening with Mike, plus he thinks she'd make a great head nurse. Ali thanks Craig for getting her on the head nurse list. Afterwards, Craig tells Nancy that the groundwork for their plan has been "laid." Craig then tells "mama" to come to "papa" and they take a roll in the hay.

Carrie starts working on Mike's speech and dreams about Mike reading it. In her fantasy, she and Mike are a couple and they kiss after he gives her speech. Mike shows up and sees Carrie daydreaming.

Down in the bayou, Stefano hears Wayne and Earl talking about how they want to find Bo and get their revenge on him for stealing Swamp Girl. Stefano emerges from the shadows and tells them he wants revenge on Bo as well. Bart disarms Stefano is angry with them because he knows they lied to him and told his men that Swamp Girl was dead. Stefano says that they must pay and he tells Bart to get rid of these two fools. However, Stefano says he knows a way to spare their lives, if they will help them. Wayne asks what he wants them to do and Stefano tells them to come to Salem with him and take Greta, aka Swamp Girl, away for good. They agree to help, but only because Stefano threatens to have Bart blow a hole in them. Stefano tells them to go home and get ready.

Wayne and Earl find Erlene. She is standing over Georgia's casket, which was uprooted during the twister. Wayne and Earl tell their mom that they have to go to Salem to get Swamp Girl. Erlene tells her boys to take Georgia back to Salem so she can have a proper resting place. Back in Maison Blanche, Stefano realizes that Bo probably knows the truth by now. Stefano says that he can't help that, but he must get her out of Salem before she sees John.

Upstairs in the Brady House, Greta tells Bo she's not ready to meet everyone just yet. Bo tells her she doesn't have to if she doesn't want to. Hope leaves to say hi to everyone and Greta tells Bo that she wants to leave. Bo asks her not to leave, she can have dinner up here. Bo says that he just thought she'd might like to see someone else for a change. Greta tells Bo that she wanted to do this, but can't. Greta says when she was an actress she loved to be the center of attention, but she's not like that anymore. Greta tells Bo that when she agreed to work for Ernesto she thought it would be a whole new world, but instead it destroyed her life. Greta says she'll never act again and will never make people smile again because she's a freak. Bo tells Greta that he doesn't see a freak, he sees a strong woman who has the confidence to overcome a terrible accident. He goes on to say that he sees a tender and caring woman as well. Greta tells Bo that she feels so alone, but Bo reminds her that she has him. Greta looks at him and asks "Do I Bo?" No tells her he is here for her, she is not alone. Bo reminds her that he promised her a home cooked meal, so he leaves to get it for her.

At the pub, John is telling Marlena that he wishes he could find someone who could tell him about his past as a priest. Marlena reminds him that Stefano doesn't want him to remember, but John says he can deal with anything. Hope shows up and says "they" can deal with anything. Everyone is happy to see Hope and everyone hugs her. Roman brings up Greta and Hope tells everyone where Bo has been and who he found. Everyone is shocked by Hope's story about Greta. John says that Greta must have looked a lot like her because it fooled them all. Hope says that even though Greta's face has been scarred, there is still a bit of a resemblance left. Hope tells them all that Greta has come back to Salem, but she's very frightened. Billie tells everyone that she knows Greta and that Bo is being very insensitive by bringing Greta here. Hope reminds Billie that she brought Greta back with Bo, but Billie says it was a huge mistake. Hope tells Billie that Bo is trying to introduce Greta back into society. Still, Billie feels she knows what is best for Greta and then she leaves the room. Billie tells herself that she has to get rid of Greta before it's too late.

Moments after Bo leaves to get Greta dinner, Greta decides to go meet Bo's family and friends. As she is about to leave the room, Billie shows up. Billie asks if she is coming down to join them and Greta says that Bo just went to get them dinner. Billie tells Greta that it's best she not meet Bo's friends and family because the news of her would spread quick and Stefano would find out about her. Billie suggests that Stefano could harm Bo's friends and family to try and find her. Billie tells Greta that it is definitely better that she stay up here because Stefano's daughter is downstairs! This upsets Greta greatly. Seeing that her job is done, Billie leaves. Greta realizes that Billie is right and she better leave Salem.

Back in the pub, Hope is telling everyone about her life as Princess Gina. Roman comments that he couldn't find any pictures of this Princess Gina, but he believes Stefano slipped up somewhere and they have to find where and how. Bo and Hope go up to get Greta and find that she is gone. Greta is out front and looks in the pub to say goodbye to Bo, but she sees John. Greta recalls sitting with John when she was little and he was a priest. Greta exclaims "it's Father John!"

Carrie asks what is wrong and Mike tells Carrie that he's very nervous about speaking in front of everyone tomorrow. Carrie tells Mike that he can give the speech to her for practice. Mike says she has stuff to do, but Carrie says there is nothing she'd rather to do to be with him, then she corrects herself and says to help him.

Suddenly, Austin walks in. Austin says he is ready to go home with his wife and asks Mike if his date went well. Mike says it was great and Austin says he doesn't think he could go back to work after a night with his special lady.

Austin and Carrie go home and when Austin starts kissing her she tells him she's tired. However, they eventually end up in bed together. Carrie recalls her little slip up with Mike in his office and tells Austin to just make love to her.

Mike says it was fun, but he feels awkward about it. Lexie asks if he feels like he's cheated on Carrie.

Eric and Taylor return to Titan after the prayer meeting. They end up talking about work and how Sami hasn't been able to schedule anymore photo shoots lately.

Taylor damns Nikki for making her lie to him because she hates it. Back in the lab, Eric starts tearing up pictures of Nicole when he finds a letter from her. Eric reads the letter, which says he's so wonderful and caring, but she thinks they can get past this. In the letter, Nicole tells Eric that he loves him and hopes he can forgive her and love her as well. She ends by saying the next move is his.

In jail, Nicole tells the mystery man Paul that she can't help him right now and she plans on keeping him secret from everyone else in Salem. Paul asks for just a little bit of money, but Nicole says that she doesn't even know if she has a job anymore. Nicole tells Paul that she was making a good life for herself, but when the letters started coming she had to lie. Nicole says if the people found out that he was her . . . that he was in prison . . . that she was nothing but trash. Paul says he understands and she can yell at him if she wants, but nothing will break their special bond. A tearful Nicole asks him to forget her and runs out. Paul says "Oh Nikki, my sweet daughter (or it may have been darling)" and then asks a guard to let him use the phone.

Nicole calls the Titan photo lab, but Eric just left and Taylor has shown up to clean and answers the phone. Nicole tells Taylor that they have to talk and tells her to meet her at her place.

Rolfe asks about Greta and Stefano tells him that she's in Salem with Bo, but he has a way to take care of her and looks at Wayne and Earl. He tells Rolfe that he plans to use the stone age boys to bring Greta back to the swamp. Stefano fears the thought of John and Greta reuniting because she could remember because they weren't able to perform the "procedure" on her. Meanwhile, Wayne and Earl get high off of the oxygen masks and then have a food fight with the caviar. Bart tells them to clean everything up and then asks them what is in the crate they brought aboard. They tell him it's just something their mom asked them to bring to Salem.

Bo finds Greta staring into the pub window and Bo tells her that they are his family and friends, he's known them most of his life. Greta asks who they are and Bo points them all out. When Bo points out John Black, Greta says "Father John, I knew it!" Bo brings Greta into the pub and she jumps into John's arms and says "it's you, it's really you!" John asks her if she knows him and Greta says of course she does and then thinks he's teasing her. Greta says "Of course I know you, Father John, but your clothes are different. Aren't you a priest anymore?" John is shocked and asks if she knew him when he was a priest. Greta is hurt that John doesn't remember and Hope explains to her that Stefano brainwashed John. Greta realizes that Stefano brainwashed Father John just like he did to Hope. John shows Greta the picture of himself in Lugano and Greta says she knew him when he looked like that, in Europe.

Rolfe calls Stefano and tells him that things are going well with Vivian. Stefano is pleased and says now he has to regain control of "Gina." Wayne and Earl tells Stefano that they haven't been able to find Bo, he didn't return to the hotel. Wayne and Earl are hungry and don't like Stefano's breakfast food, so they say they'll go to the Brady Pub. Stefano tells them that they are not to go near the pub and warns them to be careful. Wayne tells him that they want Swamp Girl back just as bad as he does. Wayne says Swamp Girl is a good luck charm and they want her back in the bayou. Stefano says that Greta has never brought him luck and he wants her out of Salem. Stefano looks at Wayne and Earl and then tells Bart to dress them in something less conspicuous. Stefano realizes that Greta has probably told Bo and Hope about the cage switch, but he hopes she hasn't talked with John. Stefano says if John found out the truth about his past and his (Stefano's) involvement with the real Gina, the consequences would be terrible. Wayne and Earl return dressed up in suits. Stefano asks Bart to take them to Bo's frequent hangouts. Wayne says they have to run an errand for their mom, but Stefano warns them that finding Greta is their number one priority.

Bo and Hope are discussing the real Princess Gina and Greta. Hope has so many questions and Bo says he thinks Greta would have told them more if Billie hadn't saw Wayne and Earl. Hope says that she suspects Billie has a hidden agenda where Greta is concerned, but Bo says if Billie has a hidden agenda it is about her (Hope). Bo asks Hope if she minds if he and Greta stay here at the Horton house with her and she says she is happy to have them here and she likes sleeping under the same roof together. Meanwhile, Greta has a dream about when she was little and John came to visit her. Greta's mom was away on a trip and John had brought her some American rock group albums. Greta thanks John, who makes her thank him En Francais. Greta wakes up and wonders how Father John could have forgotten her. Greta goes into the kitchen, where Bo and Hope are. Greta tells them that she's very worried about what Stefano would do to her if he found out she was alive. Bo tells Greta not to worry about that. Hope returns to the question she asked her last night, did her mother have a birthmark? Greta says she doesn't know, but if she did then she never saw it. Bo sits Greta down to eat and Bo and Hope ask about her and her mother. Greta tells them that she was born in a town south of London, but her mom often traveled and left her behind with nannies. When she was old enough, she went off to boarding schools. Greta says she doesn't know much about her mom because she spent most of her life with strangers or alone, which is why she didn't mind living in the bayou. Hope says that she's sure she's anxious to go back to the bayou, but Greta says she no longer wants that. She says she wants to stay in Salem to be close with Father John again. Greta tells them that Father John was always there for her and was the only one she could rely on. Hope asks "what about your mom?" and Greta says that her mom was always to busy with her jet-setting friends. Hope asks Greta if she could help John with his own past, but Greta says he never really talked about his past, his focus was always on her. Bo and Hope have to go do some things. Bo doesn't like leaving Greta here alone. Greta says she knows someone who can stay with her that she trusts completely.

John is still excited about Greta, but Marlena tells him she doesn't know if Greta can be trusted. John asks why she feels that way and Marlena says she finds it a bit odd that Greta just turned up like this. Marlena tells John that this could be one of Stefano's set-ups. John doesn't believe that because Stefano couldn't have known they'd find her and that Greta was very emotional when she spoke about her mother. John says Greta is his chance to find out the truth about himself. Marlena tells John that she'll support him, but she is afraid that he'll uncover something that could tear them apart. John tells her that no matter what he finds out, it will not affect his love for her. However, John says that he does have to talk to Greta about his past. Brady and Belle come downstairs and Brady asks if his dad would come to the park with them, but John tells him he'd do it any other day, but he can't today.

Marlena has has to leave to check on patients when Greta calls John and asks him to come to the Horton house. John tells her that he'll be right there.

At Titan, Sami tells Kate she can't fire her. Kate says she can't have a murderess working for her. Sami says she doesn't remember killing Franco and will get off. Sami begs Kate not to fire her because she needs her support. Kate asks why and Sami says that she doesn't want Will to learn that her family didn't support her. Kate tells Sami that she'll never support her and hopes Will grows up to learn what an evil monster his mother is. Kate tells her she's fired, hallelujah. Sami reminds Kate that she paid her bail, so firing her will make her look bad to her family. Kate says she doesn't care what people think. Sami asks what about her "New Faces" campaign and Kate says she'll be taking that over. Sami says she will prove her innocence, but Kate says everyone knows she's guilty. Kate tells her to get out and Sami threatens to tell everyone about her past as a hooker. Kate tells her to go ahead and do it, the DA would love that ammunition. She also says Austin would never forgive her for blackmailing his mother. Roman shows up just as Sami yells "You can't do this to me!" Roman asks what is going on and Sami says "Daddy, Kate just fired me." Roman tells Sami that Kate has a company to run and she can't employ Sami if she's too busy working on her case. Sami says Kate is just doing this to be cruel and Roman tells her that she needs to take it easy and keep a low profile until the trial. Roman asks Sami to leave and then he talks to Kate about how happy she must be that Sami is gone and Lucas is coming home. Kate tells Roman that she wished Sami had taken the plea bargain. Roman says he believes Sami didn't kill Franco and could be acquitted. Roman tells Kate that he also believes she knows something she isn't sharing and now would be a good time to confess because the truth always comes out in the end. Kate tells Roman "not this again," and Roman promises her that he'll make sure the truth comes out at the trial. Meanwhile, Sami wonders how far Kate would go to get revenge. Suddenly it clicks in.
