Belle says that Austin can't come either, but Lexie and Abe might stop by. Carrie is there and wishes Marlena a happy birthday. Shawn, Caroline, and Maggie all remember the fifties.

Lexie says no, but if they want a child they have to wait for the green light.

At the Kiriakis mansion, Nicole tells Austin that he is so naive where Sami is concerned. She tells him that Sami's only agenda is to push Lucas out of Will's life. She tells Austin that the best thing he can do for Will and everyone else is to move out. Austin says he has just as much right to live her as Lucas does. They start fighting about Sami again, and Austin turns the argument around to the reason she really married Lucas. He asks if she married Lucas to help him get custody of Will?

In the helicopter, Lucas and Sami are still arguing. Lucas tells Sami that if she wants to sue for full custody then don't sign the papers when they get to the capital. Sami says she just may do that! They arrive at the capital and meet with the judge. The judge thinks Lucas is being fair and generous offering to share custody with Sami. Sami says that Lucas tricked her into signing that agreement, it is all a charade just like his phony concern for his son! Sami asks the judge if she thinks she could get full custody of her son? The judge says she has a chance, and Sami says that's all she needs. Sami tells Lucas she will not sign any agreement, she is going to fight him and win!

Lucas calls Nicole and tells her that he and Sami should be home soon. When she asks about the papers, Lucas says he'll tell her when he gets home. Lucas says he is looking forward to Chicago tonight, but Nicole says he will probably be tired. Lucas says he wants to go, so Nicole says she'll pack a bag. After the call, Austin tells her that she doesn't sound to happy to hear from her hubby. Nicole tells Austin that she knows what he is doing, he's trying to get her to admit marrying Lucas instead of Eric was a mistake, but she's not going to. Austin tells her that maybe when she lets her guard down the two of them can be friends. Nicole doesn't see how, but Austin says they both come from similar places. Nicole says she needs another memosa. Austin tells her that if she ever needs to talk, she can talk to him. Austin leaves and Brandon shows up. Brandon asks her what she and Austin were talking about? Nicole says they were just shooting the breeze. Nicole then tells Brandon that when he fights Austin, don't hurt him because he's a nice guy. Brandon says she should be worrying about Austin not hurting him. Nicole tells Brandon that she has every faith in him, he will win.

On the helicopter, Lucas and Sami are still fighting. Lucas tells Sami that if she goes to court than she'll never see Will again. Suddenly, the pilot is hit with chest pains and passes out.

In Paris at the castle, Eric and Greta ask Kurt what secrets he is keeping from them? Kurt gets out of answering their question by asking them what secrets they are keeping from him? Greta and Eric don't understand what he means. Kurt asks Greta why she was pretending the woman at the ball was her mother? Greta turns around and asks him why he kept the truth about her mother a secret, did Stefano pay him to keep quiet? Kurt says he's never met Stefano until tonight. Kurt asks her again why she pretended to be that woman's daughter? Greta says that she was protecting two of her friends. Kurt asks which friends and why they need protecting? Greta says she can't answer that without putting her friends in jeopardy. Greta asks Kurt if his mother is here, she'd like to speak with her. Kurt tells her that he put her on a train back to Germany because seeing all her old friends tired her out. Greta asks Kurt what he means "her old friends?"

Hope/Gina says of course she wants her revenge. Gina tells her to take it, destroy Stefano! Gina/Hope says she can't risk it, but Gina tells her that she must. She tells Hope/Gina not to give the last Rennet to Stefano. Gina/Hope says she can't do that, right now she is confused. She says she is hearing voices asking her to choose between Gina and Hope, she does not know what to do. Gina tells her that she has only one choice. Gina asks Hope/Gina to join forces with her to defeat Stefano! Hope/Gina says it is not possible, Stefano always wins. Gina says this time it shall be different because they have the advantage. Gina says Stefano does not know she is onto him, and he does not know she (Hope/Gina) is not following his orders. She tells Hope/Gina that she may not be able to get back her stolen years, but if they join forces she can get back her future. Suddenly, someone rings the doorbell and knocks on the door. Hope/Gina leaves to answer it, and when she is gone, Gina removes her veil. Hope/Gina answers the door thinking it is Bo, only to find Stefano. Stefano grabs Hope/Gina, shakes her, and tells her that he wants the Rennet now!

She tries to get up, but faints yet again.

In Paris at the lab, Stefano and Rolfe are working on the satellite.

Stefano tells Rolfe that there will be no waiting, this transformation will take place as he has ordered! Rolfe reminds Stefano that he doesn't have the Rennet yet. Stefano tells him that is why he must delay the satellite's trajectory until she hands the Rennet over to him. Rolfe says he's not all powerful, but Stefano slams his hand down on the desk and orders Rolfe to do as he commands.

The real Gina, who is on the phone with John, is speechless. John asks who this is, but she says nothing. John says this is annoying and he wants them to stop calling his house and harassing his family. Marlena tells John to just hang up. John takes the phone away from his ear and does not hear Gina finally calling to him. John hangs up on her, leaving Gina devastated. Kurt shows up and asks Gina what is wrong, she looks like she's seen a ghost? Kurt asks her if she called someone? Gina says no, she knows no one and no one knows her. Kurt decides to make her some camamille tea to sooth her nerves. Gina looks at herself in a mirror and tells herself that John can't see her like this, time has not been kind to her. She says she would do anything to see her John again, but not like this. She looks at an older picture of herself, the way she looked last time John saw her. She wishes she could turn back the years, and then thinks it is possible and she knows exactly how she can do it. Gina opens a secret panel and looks into the lab where Stefano and Rolfe are working. Gina sees Stefano leave to take a call from Marlena (see below), so she goes into the lab, but sees Rolfe is still working. She turns the heat up in order to get Rolfe out of the lab, and once he's gone she enters. She searches the place and comes across a file which she reads.

Bo is still sitting in jail waiting to be released. He ends up grabbing a guard through the bars and demands to be let out so he can get to Hope. Bo is released from his cell and signs the release papers. He gets his cell phone and calls the townhouse hoping that Gina/Hope is there, but there is no answer. He calls the airport and learns Stefano has not left Paris, which means Hope must still be here.

Back in Salem, John calls Bo and learns he has lost Hope. John thinks he may have a way to help Bo, so he leaves. Before he leaves he tells Marlena and Belle that he thinks he'll have their number changed and unlisted. Marlena doesn't like the idea of giving up, so Belle says they should dial *69 and have it automatically dial the number of the last person who called. Marlena dials *69 and gets the number of who called them. Belle looks it up and learns whoever called was in Paris, France. Marlena realizes that Stefano is in Paris. In Paris, Rolfe's phone rings, and he hands to Stefano. Stefano asks who is calling? Marlena tells Stefano to stop making harassing phone calls to her. Stefano has no idea what she is talking about, and excuses himself to go to the study. Marlena tells Stefano that she wants this harassing phone calls to stop, but Stefano says he did not order any phone-calls to her home. He wished her and John all the best and meant it, he also assumes John gave her a wonderful birthday party today. Marlena asks how he knew it was her birthday? Stefano says "You can't think I'd forget your birthday?" Marlena tells him to leave them alone, and she hangs up. John returns, and Marlena tells John that Stefano's number was where the calls where made from, but she believes he didn't call them.

On a pier in France, Gina/Hope sees an apparition of Gina standing next to her. Gina tells Hope/Gina that she wants some insurance that she will continue to exist. Hope/Gina asks what she meant when she said she'd have to kill her to make her go away. Gina tells Hope/Gina that she was just upset. Gina tells Hope/Gina that she is well aware she wants to return to her former life as Hope, but she cannot ever return home again! Hope/Gina says she can't stop her, but Gina asks her what she is going to do about moi? Hope/Gina says she just won't exist any longer, but Gina asks how she will pull that one off? Hope/Gina says Bo's love will save her. Gina laughs and says John's love wasn't able to save her, John betrayed her when he forgot about her. Gina tells her that the minute she hands the Rennet over to Stefano, Stefano will betray her, and then Bo will betray her. Hope/Gina doesn't believe her, so Gina calls her a fool. She tells Hope/Gina that the only way for her to survive is if they work together. Hope/Gina tells herself that this is not real and that Princess Gina is dead and her soul belongs to Hope. Gina tells her that she owns her soul now and forever! Hope/Gina says Stefano couldn't take John's soul, so why isn't it the same for her? Gina tells her that Stefano had other plans for John, but Hope/Gina says John still had control over who he was. Gina reminds her once again that her soul belongs to Princess GIna, that is who she is now. Hope/Gina tells her no, the real Gina is dead and she was a creation of Stefano's. Gina reminds her that she was oh so happy to live as Gina all those years ago, and to have John in her bed. Gina tells her that she can still have John again, does she really want to throw John away for Bo, who will forsake her? Hope/Gina says she knows she can trust Bo, that is the one thing she doesn't have to question. Gina reminds her that Bo has let Hope down, disappointed her, even devastated her before. Hope/Gina says Bo is not perfect, but he is flesh and blood. Hope/Gina says she has faith in Bo, and there is nothing she can do or say to change that. Hope/Gina tells Gina to get out of her life now and forever! Gina says she cannot get rid of her, but Hope/Gina says "Watch me!" Hope/Gina turns her back on Gina, who begins to fade away. Gina doesn't understand why the satellite didn't eradicate Hope. Hope/Gina says it probably would have if Bo's love hadn't saved her. Hope/Gina tells Gina that Bo is her soul mate and nothing can keep them apart. Gina tells her that there is one thing that can keep them apart! Gina says death will keep her and Bo apart, because that is what is waiting for her if she tries to leave her behind. Hope/Gina says she won't leave Bo. Gina tells her that Stefano will not let Bo survive, it is her turn to rescue Bo by letting him go back to Salem where he has people who love him. She says that Bo will live, and so shall she as Gina. Gina asks Hope/Gina to give her her hand. Hope/Gina reaches her hand out to Gina, but Bo suddenly shows up. Gina tells Hope/Gina to get rid of Bo for his own sake. Hope/Gina is confused and looks at both Bo and Gina. Bo asks her what she is looking at? Hope/Gina says she is looking at Gina. Bo is confused and asks if she is no longer inside her? Hope/Gina reaches out to Gina, but Bo stops her and asks her what Gina wants? Hope/Gina tells him that she wants her to be Gina again. Bo asks Hope to look at him, so she does. Bo tells her that he doesn't remember not ever loving her, even when they were separated. He tells her that their love still lived on in his heart and dreams. He goes on and tells her that he cannot survive without her love. Gina tells Hope/Gina not to listen because Bo will just go back to Salem and find another Fancyface. Bo tells Hope that both her son and him need her, he asks her to trust him. Hope/Gina says she wants that. Bo tells her all she has to do is believe in the love they share, it will set her free. Hope/Gina looks at Gina and says Bo's love will free her from the hold she has on her. Hope tells Gina that it is over, and as Bo holds Hope, Gina vanishes as she sobs. Hope asks Bo what he is doing here? He says he came to find her. She asks how he knew where to look? Bo tells her that their souls are connected. Hope can't believe he still loves her so much. Bo tells her that he will always love her, forever. Bo realizes he has Hope back, and they hug, and finally kiss. After he kisses her, Bo is positive she is his Fancy Face. Bo tells her that he's never letting her go, and Hope says good!


October 14
At the Kiriakis mansion, Austin accuses Carrie of being jealous of Sami because she lives here with him, while she (Carrie) is feeling lonely. Carrie says she is not jealous of Sami, and Sami is trying to convince him that they can play the part of the happy family. She realizes she is once again attacking Sami, and tells Austin that the last thing she ever wanted to do was hurt him. Austin says he knows she doesn't mean to hurt him, she is a good woman and he's never stopped believing that. Carrie says that it is a relief to hear him say that, but she can't leave it at that because of what they once meant to one another. She asks Austin if there is a way that she can make it better between them, is there any way she can make it up to him? Austin tells her no, he cannot go back and he cannot tell her that it was okay that he found her in bed with another guy. Austin tells her he knows now it was not solely her fault, but it is over now and they have to move on. Austin looks outside and sees it is storming pretty bad, and he begins to worry about Sami and Lucas. Nicole walks into the room to poor herself some more booze, and Austin asks when she last heard from Lucas? Nicole says it was early this afternoon, Lucas said he'd be leaving for home shortly and he couldn't wait to spend the night in Chicago with her. She also says that Mickey Horton called too, Sami refused to sign the custody papers. Carrie lets out a "surprise surprise." Austin wonders what happened between them, Lucas must be furious. As Nicole continues to down drinks, Austin grows more and more concerned about Sami and Lucas. Austin asks Nicole if she isn't the least bit concerned about her husband? Nicole says of course she is, but she's sure they'll be home soon. Austin makes calls to other family member and learns that nobody has heard from Sami. Austin gets a call from the airport and learns that the Titan Chopper hasn't returned, they lost radar contact in the storm. Carrie becomes concerned, but Nicole just keeps on drinking.

In the cave, Lucas tries to keep Sami warm with body heat, but she yells at him to get away from her. Lucas says he was just trying to warm her up. Sami says she is thirsty, so Lucas gives her some of his water, but tells her to only take a sip since there is not much left. Sami tells him to fill it with rain water, but Lucas says there is no need because they aren't staying the night. Sami tells Lucas that she can't move. Lucas says he will go for help, but Sami accuses him of leaving her here to die just like he killed Franco. She says Austin will nail him to the wall for this. Lucas says he will not leave her here to die, he has compassion and a heart, unlike her. Lucas walks out of the cave, leaving Sami alone. Sami hears Austin's voice telling her to hang on because both he and Will need her. She tells Austin that she promises to come back to him and Will. Suddenly there is a cave in and rocks and dirt begin to fall all around her. Lucas soon returns to find Sami conscious, but surrounded by huge boulders. Lucas tries to make her more comfortable, but all Sami can do is cry due to the pain. Lucas tells Sami that he found his cell phone, but it was smashed. He tells her that they are on a hillside in the middle of nowhere, nobody will find them unless the helicopter is reported missing. Sami is convinced she is going to bleed to death. Lucas works to stop Sami's bleeding, and Sami thanks Lucas for coming back. He tells her that he wasn't going to leave her to die. Sami tells him that Austin must have realized they are missing by now. Lucas says he's sure her hero will find her soon. Sami tells Lucas not to talk like that, Austin is the only one who stood by her when she was on death row, and there is probably no one missing him right now! Lucas says that his grandmother and Maggie are probably missing him, but Sami says Maggie probably thinks he's on another bender. She also points out that he forgot to mention Nicole. Lucas asks Sami to do him a favor and shut up. Sami tells Lucas to face the facts, Nicole doesn't love him, she doesn't give a damn whether he lives or dies. Lucas says he is positive that Nicole is very worried about him, but Sami laughs and says "yeah right, she's probably thinking of the millions of dollar she is going to inherit!" Lucas tells her that she would have been dead if it wasn't for him, so she should shut her mouth and show some appreciation! Lucas tells her that they will get out of here. Sami doesn't know how, it is dark out and nobody can see that the helicopter crashed. Lucas tells her to calm down. He turns off their light to save energy, and suddenly wolves begin to howl.

In Paris at the Paris house, Gina has the disk containing Hope's memories. Kurt returns from searching the entire neighborhood for her, and he asks her where she has been? Gina says she was finding her future, finding a way out of this hell that Stefano has condemned her to. Gina tells him that it is time to turn the tables on Stefano with a vengeance. Kurt asks Gina what she is planning? Gina says Stefano stole her life, and she wants to get it back. She says that Stefano thinks he can play God, but now it is her turn to control fate, her own and others. Kurt asks her what she means? Gina tells him that he will see in time, right now she has to find Greta and her beloved John. Kurt reminds her that it has been many years since she's seen John. Gina tells Kurt that she knows time has been cruel to her. She picks up the picture of herself when she was younger and tells Kurt that she is about to turn back the clock, John will see her as the woman he remembers, inside and out! Gina calls a Dr. Hobblemier and schedules an appointment with him. Kurt tells her that what she is proposing is dangerous, if she goes to see John she will only end up heartbroken. Kurt tells her that John is married, has children, has a happy life now. Gina asks Kurt how he knows all this? Gina pounds her fists on Kurt's chest and demands to know why he never told her this. Kurt says John came to the chateau, but not for her. He tells her that John came to help Eric and Greta exhume her grave, and it proved to him that she was really dead. Kurt says he didn't tell her because he didn't want to break her heart. Gina tells him that she'd rather have a broken heart rather than think he was dead. Gina tells Kurt that if he wants to prove his loyalty to her then he will follow her instructions to the letter. Kurt says he will do whatever she wishes. Gina puts the CD into a notebook computer and goes to work. She orders Kurt to go and follow the orders she has given him. Kurt leaves, and Gina says her plan for Hope is about to begin.

In the lab, Stefano walks into the lab and asks Rolfe why it is so hot in here? Rolfe tells him that the thermostat malfunctioned and he adjusted it. Stefano orders Rolfe to continue working to delay Gina's transformation until he can get the painting back from her. Stefano says that once Gina is transformed back into Hope, she will have no memories of ever being Gina. When Rolfe begins searching for something, Stefano asks him what is wrong? Rolfe tells Stefano that he can't seem to find the computer disk containing Hope's memories! Stefano begins to wonder if someone else has been in here, someone determined to change Gina back into Hope? Rolfe asks who? Stefano says that damn Bo Brady! Rolfe asks how Bo could have broken in, he's been behind bars? Stefano tells Rolfe to be quiet and look for the damn disk. Stefano calls Bart and orders him to find Bart. Stefano tells Rolfe that he's getting very bad vibrations like Celeste used to say. He sits down and begins to think, he refuses to let anyone double cross him again. Stefano's phone rings, it is Bart reporting the news that Bo was recently released from jail. Stefano decides that it is time to put an end to Bo and Gina. Rolfe asks Stefano if he took the disk by accident when he went to the study to talk to MArlena? Stefano is positive he didn't, but they decide to check just in case. After searching the whole house they return to the lab empty handed, where they just happen to come across the CD! Stefano tells Rolfe that he must have misplaced it, but they have found it now and that is all that matters. Stefano says he will have Bart try to find Gina.

On the pier, Bo and Hope are busy kissing one another. Bo tells her that he's been waiting for this moment a long time. Hope tells Bo that his love brought her back, all she wants is a future with him and their son. She asks him to forgive her for not trusting him, but Bo tells her that she was not herself. Bo tells her if anyone is to blame for this it is him. Hope tells him that none of this is his fault, but Bo says he doubted her when she was found at Maison Blanche, he doesn't know why he didn't trust in their love. Hope tells him that he didn't want to go through the pain of loosing her again, but Bo says the truth is that he didn't love her enough. Bo tells her that when she became Gina and rejected her, he felt a fraction of the pain she felt when he was with Billie. Bo says that his love for her wasn't strong enough, that is the reality that he has to come to terms with, he broke their trust, he betrayed their love. He tells her that he doesn't know if there is anything he can do to make it up to her. Hope says she was devastated, but she has realized that as Gina she was using his betrayal as an excuse to push him away. Bo tells her after all this hurt and betrayal, he doesn't know if there is a way she can forgive him. Hope tells Bo that of course she forgives him, she is here because his love saved her from Gina. She tells him that he has proven her love to him against all odds, and never wants to loose him again. Bo and Hope hug, and she tells him that she wants a life with him and Shawn D. Bo asks Hope how they will celebrate? There is a noise from the other side of the pier and Bo tells Hope to stay right here while he busies himself. Hope's cell phone rings and it is "Countess Ilsa" calling. Hope asks her what is wrong, she sounds upset. "Isla" says she has found a way to bring Stefano down, but she needs her help. Hope tells her that she and Bo will do whatever it takes. Isla says Bo cannot be involved with this. "Ilsa" says she knows more details about Stefano's plan, and something could happen to Bo if he becomes involved. Hope tells "Isla" that she cannot lie to Bo. "Ilsa" asks her not to lie, just get away for awhile and meet her. "Ilsa" tells Hope that she must meet hr and hangs up. Bo returns to Hope and gives her a good luck stone for her to rub whenever she needs to feel safe. Hope thanks Bo, who asks her who she was talking to on the phone? Hope says it was just a wrong number. Bo tells her that for their celebration it should be romantic and involve the city of light. However, he then says as long as she is close to him, that is celebration enough. Hope tells him that she doesn't want to miss one second with him, but she is exhausted and needs to rest. She tells Bo that she just needs some time for herself. Bo tells her whatever she needs. Hope tells him that she loves him, and tomorrow will be the first day of the rest of their lives. Hope leaves, and Bo wonders.

Back at the Paris house, Kurt returns after returning the disk to the lab, but not before making a copy. Gina tells Kurt that Stefano shall never know the surprise she has planned for him.


October 15
Up on the mountain, Lucas returns to the cave to help Sami. Sami is freezing and looks pretty bad. She thinks they are going to die out here, but Lucas says no one is going to die. Lucas tells Sami that he has to leave to get help. Sami asks him not to go because she might die before he gets back, and she doesn't want to die alone. Lucas tells her that if he doesn't go for help, they are both going to die. Sami asks Lucas to promise her that he will let Austin be a part of Will's life and help Will remember her if she should die, but Lucas refuses because she isn't going to die. Lucas tells her that she is the most infuriating person he's ever met in his life. Lucas leaves, and Sami decides not to give Lucas the satisfaction of her dying. She tries to get up and leave, but she isn't able to. Meanwhile, Lucas returns to the helicopter and searches around for flares. He finally finds one, but it is too wet to light. He later finds an emergency homing beaker, which he turns on. However, a helicopter flying overhead flies past him. Lucas goes back to the cave and finds Sami has tried to move, but she is unconscious again. He covers her back up and thinks it is better this way because he doesn't have to tell her that there is no hope for them. Lucas tells himself that he now knows what it feels like to know your going to die. Lucas tells Sami that she's a lot easier to talk to when she doesn't talk back. He says he doesn't know if she can hear him, but he thanks her for giving him Will. He knows everything she's done was out of love for Will, he just prays their son doesn't remember all the awful things they've done to one another. Suddenly a voice calls out to them, and Lucas runs toward it. A few rangers show up, and the rangers say Sami is barely alive. Lucas asks them not to let her die.

At the Kiriakis mansion, Kate has joined Austin, Carrie, and Nicole the drunk as they wait for news on Sami and Lucas. Kate rants and raves that this entire mess is Sami's fault, and Austin is angry that his mom is once again blaming Sami. Carrie tells Austin and Kate that arguing isn't helping. Nicole staggers into the conversation and tells them she knows what will help them, a drink! Kate tells Nicole that her husband is missing and she wants to break out the champagne! Austin tells them both to keep quiet or they will wake up Will, how would he feel if he saw them handling this crisis! Austin decides to check on Will, he hopes Will hasn't heard anything and that his parents will be back before he wakes up. Carrie calls her dad to see if he has heard anything, but he hasn't. He tells Carrie and Kate that he will let them know when the chopper is found, but because the storm is coming back they may have to wait till it blows over to actually find Sami and Lucas. Roman says he will be in touch. As Nicole continues drinking, Kate calls her a heartless bitch. Nicole responds with "Takes one to know one!" Kate accuses Nicole of not even loving Lucas. Nicole says she does care about Lucas and does want him to come home. Kate says she can see how desperate she is for Lucas to come back safe. Nicole tells her that just because she's not pulling her hair out doesn't mean she's not worried. Kate calls her a wretched human being, even more so when she's drinking. Nicole tells her that they both want Lucas to be okay, but neither of them would care if Sami didn't come back alive.

Roman is at the penthouse worrying about Sami with Belle and Marlena, John is out looking for Sami at this minute. Roman tells Marlena that they got one miracle when Sami was on death row, perhaps they'll get another one. Later, John calls Marlena at the penthouse and tells her that they have picked up an emergency signal on the mountain, but they can't land. He says a rescue team is being send to save them. Even later, John calls Marlena and tells them that Sami and Lucas have been found, but Sami is hurt. Marlena calls Kate and tells her that Sami and Lucas have been found. Marlena, Roman, Kate, Austin, and Carrie all plan to go to the hospital. At the mansion, Kate asks Nicole if she is not going to go to the hospital? Nicole says Lucas is okay so why go? Kate tells her to just put Will to bed. Nicole says she is tired, so Kate tells her to drink some coffee. Kate tells Will that she's going to see his daddy, and to ask Nicole to play go fish because she's really good at playing games. Nicole and Lucas play go fish, Will refuses to go to bed. Nicole tells him he can stay up, but she is sick of playing this game. Will tells Nicole that he's thirsty, but she just ignores him. He gets up and picks up Nicole's mimosa and takes a big drink!

Sami and Lucas are brought to the hospital. Austin asks Lucas what happened, so Lucas gives him the report on what happened.

Doug and Julie meet Bo at La Roulette, they are anxious to hear how his plan went. Bo tells them the good news, Hope is back. Julie asks him to tell them everything. Bo fills them in on everything. He plans to take Hope home when she is finished resting up. Doug and Julie want to say goodbye to her, but they have to go to Prince Otto's wedding in Vienna. Julie says they will plan a visit to Salem in the future, and Doug tells him the next wedding he should plan on singing at is his and Hope's. Later, Shawn gives Bo a call and tells him there is a problem, Shawn D is missing! Bo fears that DiMera is behind this and asks his dad not to call the police just yet. Bo tells his dad that he will be home as soon as he can. Bo says he wants to find Shawn D, but he can't leave Hope now.

Back in Salem, Shawn tells Caroline that Bo doesn't want them to call the police just yet. Caroline wishes Stefano would leave their family alone. Shawn and Caroline close up the pub and go upstairs. Outside, we see a person with a knife trying to pick the doorlock. The person gets into the pub, and out jumps Shawn with a bat! Caroline flips the light switch, and they are shocked to see that it is a very grown up Shawn D. He's got greasy black hair and a black leather jacket on, a real chip off the old block! Caroline says that his father feared Stefano might have kidnapped him. Shawn D says "Let that guy try to, I'll kick his sorry butt!" Caroline is shocked by Shawn D's smart mouth. Shawn D tells them that he hates his school and didn't want to stay there with the rich stuck up snobs. Shawn says they will call Bo to let him know that he is okay. Shawn D asks his grandpa not to call his dad, he doesn't want him to know. The phone rings and it is Roman calling, he tells them that Sami was in an accident and they are at the hospital. Shawn tells him that he and Caroline are on their way. Shawn tells Caroline what happened, and Shawn D insists on going with them. Moments after they leave, Bo tries to call.

At the chateau, Gina is pacing around the room and smoking. Kurt brings her some tea to help her calm her nerves, but she doesn't want any. She is furious that Hope did not meet her last night as she promised her. Kurt says perhaps Stefano got to her. Gina says it is possible, but she hope that is not true. Suddenly the phone rings. Gina answers, pretending to be Ilsa and learns it is Hope calling. Gina asks her if she is all right? Hope says she has never been better, and the reason she didn't meet with her is because she was being followed last night. Gina tells Hope to meet her and Princess Gina's chateau. Gina tells her if she arrives first to wait for her at the gate. Hope says there is no need, she still has Gina's memories and knows where the key is hidden. After the call, Gina looks at the disk containing Hope's memories. She tells Kurt that she is so close to realizing her dreams, once she is done it will be Hope and Stefano who are trapped in the nightmare. Kurt asks her if she is positive she wants to go through with this plan, and she says she is.

After her call to Gina, Hope thinks that "Ilsa" is being so kind to her, so she will share her plan for revenge with her. Hope goes to the chateau and remembers the happy times Gina spent here with John. Unknown to Hope, Gina is spying her from behind the wall. Gina tells herself that Hope and Stefano stole her life, so they must pay with their own! Gina, disguised as Ilsa, goes to meet Hope. Hope tells Ilsa that she has the most wonderful news, she is free from Stefano, she is Hope once again. Ilsa asks how that is possible? Hope tells her that Bo's love freed her and banished Gina's spirit forever. Ilsa tells her not to be to sure about that. Hope says it is true, but Ilsa says if she is no longer Gina then they cannot get their revenge on Stefano! Hope says they can and she knows how, but there is one thing she has to do first. Hope pulls out her phone, which rings. Hope answers it, its only Bo. Bo asks her where she is? Hope says she is at a spa resting up. Bo tells her that . . . he misses her like crazy. Bo tells her that he should head back to Salem and fix everything up for her so it is perfect when she comes home. Hope says she would feel better having an ocean between him and Stefano. She assures him that she loves him, and they say good bye. After the call, Ilsa asks Hope what she has in mind? Hope says that even though is Hope again, she still has all of Gina's memories and knows enough to put Stefano behind bars for life. She says she will set up a meeting to give Stefano the painting, but the ISA will also be there to arrest him. "Ilsa" tells Hope that is not the plan! Hope says this is the best way to get what they both want without putting themselves in any dangers. When Hope says she will finally get back the life Stefano tried to take from her, "Ilsa" says she wants her life back to. Hope asks her what she means? Gina pulls back her veil and reveals herself to Hope. Hope is shocked and says it can't be! Gina assures Hope that she is who she thinks it is, she is very much alive. Gina introduces herself as Princess Gina VonAmburg!

Back at the restaurant, Bo tells himself that it is better that Hope not know Shawn D was missing, and by time she gets home he will have found their son, Stefano will be behind bars, and they will be together as a family. Bo calls the pub later and when nobody answers he tells himself not to get paranoid.
