September 01 Week 3


September 17
I only got to see 15-20 minutes of the show and a news conference interupted the rest. This is NBC's summary. Sorry!

A hurricane continues to approach the island as Belle, Philip, and Shawn enter the cavern. They find the next clue, which gives the exact location of the treasure. Shawn is lowered down on a rope. He is almost caught in a deadly booby trap, but he manages to avoid it. Shawn find the treasure, and he puts the red ruby in his pocket. As Philip pulls Shawn up, Paul enters the cavern, pulls a knife on Belle and holds her hostage. Shawn gives Paul the jewels. Philip attempts to attack Paul, and Shawn falls back down into the cavern. Philip and Paul struggle. Paul knocks Philip unconscious. Belle tries to help Shawn but manages to fall into the cavern, too. Paul escapes. He looks at the jewels and becomes furious. The red ruby is not there!

Meanwhile, Victor, Nicole, Brady, and Chloe are en route to Puerto Rico. Nicole says that if Paul has done anything to those kids she will kill him. Brady and Chloe reflect on their friendship and how they have become good friends. As they approach Puerto Rico, the plane is forced to fly to the hurricane. The plane is hit by uprooted trees and loses an engine as well as its landing gear. The plane begins to nose dive to the ground. Will they survive?

In Salem, Bo has a nightmare. He dreams about the day JT was born and how Hope mentioned how different her baby looked. Bo awakens and Hope wants to know what's wrong. Bo tells her that he feels the babies were switched. Hope insists that JT is her own. Bo tells his wife that they should have a DNA test done just to make sure...

At the DiMera mansion, Abe tells Lexie that they should have dinner with Hope and Bo one night. Lexie refuses. She will not go until Bo gets this baby switch idea out of his head. Meanwhile, Rolf tells Bart that he has received a call from Stefano. Stefano is worried about Bo snooping around about the babies. Rolf suggests that they distract the Bradys by reactivating Princess Gina's memories into Hope. However, there are some complications. Hope could be lost completely if the transplant occurs. To be sure, he needs to adjust the chip in Hope's brain with radio waves. He could do this, but needs to be sure she's within 100 feet of him. Rolf pitches his idea to Lexie who says she has a perfect idea to make sure that Hope is within 100 feet... She agrees to throw a "coming out" party for Princess Gina at the DiMera mansion...

Two press conferences/event coverages interupted the show, so I didn't get to see most of the first half, and a chunk in the middle. I'm using NBC's summary and adding a bit onto it from what I got to see.

Once Paul realizes the ruby is missing, he returns to the cavern. Shawn agrees to give him the ruby if he will help get them out. Paul agrees, but when Shawn and Belle get out, Shawn refuses to hand over the ruby. A struggle between Paul and Shawn ensues until Belle hits Paul on the head with a rock, and he is knocked out. Shawn and Belle decide to grab Philip and get out of there, but Paul recovers and pushes Belle back into the cavern. Philip wakes up and sees what is happening to his friends. He spots a knife on the ground and stabs Paul in the shoulder. Paul pushes Philip into the cavern followed closely by Shawn. Paul tells them that they can keep the ruby. He'll just return to get it when they are dead. Phillip begs Paul to at least take Belle, and he agrees. However, Shawn refuses to let Belle go with Paul, because he knows Paul will rape her.

Elsewhere on the island, a search party has been formed to find Belle, Philip and Shawn. Jan says her gut tells her that Paul may be responsible but, not wanting to mention the rape, she refuses to explain why. Before they can locate them, everyone prepares to be evacuated because of the hurricane. Mimi refuses to leave, but Mr. Woods says that Shawn. Belle, and Phillip are resourceful and have probably found shelter. He says once they get on the boat he'll radio the coast guard and have a search team sent out to find them. Mimi becomes hysterical and has to be dragged to the boat...

Although the landing gear is gone, the pilot is able to land the plane without crashing it. The pilot sends everyone down the emergency chute, and Victor accidentally goes down head first and hits his head on the tarmac. He is okay, but Nicole insists that he goes to the hospital. Brady and Chloe check into the hotel. Chloe mentions to Brady how she has butterflies in her stomach concerning Philip. She has to see him. Brady is crestfallen that Chloe still cares so much for Philip. At the hospital, Nicole admits to Victor how much she really cares for him. She doesn't know what she would do without him. Victor guarantees her that he will be around for a long time and he will protect her from her father. Nicole says she's waited her whole life to hear a man say that to her.

Back in Salem, Rolf suggests to Lexie that Greta and John should be at Hope's "coming out" party. If her memories do return, she will have a distinct reaction to them. Lexie says she will put it together as fast as she can before Bo convinces Hope that the babies were switched...

At home, Bo tries to persuade Hope to do a DNA test on JT. Hope, however, doesn't think that is a good idea. She knows JT is her son, but even if, for some reason, he wasn't... Hope says she doesn't want to know. Later, Hope leaves to meet Lexie and Bo goes to the pub...

In the pub, Colin tells Caroline and Elizabeth that there's a chance he may be hired at University Hospital soon. Elizabeth is upset and tells Colin that she can't stand Salem. Colin storms off. Bo enters the pub and Elizabeth flirts with him. Bo resists her charms and she leaves in a huff. Meanwhile, Lexie tells Hope about the party. Lexie tells her friend that she deserves it. She guarantees it will mark a new chapter in Hope's life. Meanwhile, Bo tells his mother that things are great and that they will only get better. Little does he know about the jeopardy his family is in...

Outside the pub, Elizabeth runs into Colin. Colin says that Dr. Wesley was called away on an emergency, so he has to meet with him later. When Colin suggests they postpone the wedding, Elizabeth begins pouting and suggests a round of love making at home will make him change his mind.
