Janice’s Spoilers

Motel: Chelsea, Bo, Billie, Abby

Chelsea is curled up on the floor against the bathroom door and crying. Both Bo and Hope try to reason with her. Chelsea is still sure that they are lying and that the only reason Billie wants to claim her as their daughter is to break Bo and Hope up. Billie looks very embarrassed. Bo warns Chelsea not to talk to her mother like that, but Chelsea just says that Billie is a tramp and that Bo isn’t her father.

He explains that the parents she grew up with were not her biological ones. Chelsea isn’t listening. She gets dressed and decides to take off via the bathroom window. In the next scene the window slams down with her still in the bathroom. Bo and Billie hear the crash and demand to know what she is up to. Bo tells her gently that they won’t stop her if she wants to leave, so she might as well use the front door. He just wants her to give them the chance to prove to her that they are her real parents.

Chelsea comes out of the bathroom and Billie gives her the file with the DNA results. Chelsea is sure that Billie paid off the lab or even Lexie to get the results she wanted. Billie finally offers for the three of them to go back to the hospital and take more tests. Chelsea decides to look at the tests and focuses on the “99% chance that they are her biological parents. She’s shocked and wants to know how this could happen. Bo promises to find out how she came to be with the Bensons and how she got taken away from Billie in the first place.

Chelsea sits down on the bed and asks them to leave so she can have some time to think about things. Just then someone knocks on the door. Chelsea wants to know where Max went. Bo opens the door and it’s Abby. She hugs Chelsea and tells her how happy she is for her...now she’ll never be alone again. Abby notices the tense atmosphere and apologizes for bursting in on them. She decides to leave and Chelsea wants to go with her.

A shell-shocked Chelsea asks her parents to understand that she needs some time to assimilate all this. Billie really wants to touch her but Bo holds her back. She tells her daughter that they understand. Abby asks her friend if she is still going with her to the bridal showers but Chelsea hasn’t decided. The girls leave and Billie starts crying. Bo tells her that Chelsea has just gotten a big shock and they have to give her time...and hopefully one day she will accept their love. Billie is worried that Chelsea will hate them instead.

Out in the parking lot, Chelsea tells Abby she is grateful that she came. Abby tries to convince Chelsea that Bo and Hope are good people and have waited forever to find their daughter. She just hopes that Chelsea will give them a chance. Chelsea tells her that her whole world has just been turned upside down and all she knows is that someone is going to have to pay for that.

Patrick’s House: Patrick, Hope, Jennifer, Jack, Frankie

Jack and Frankie are ragging on Patrick when Hope and Jennifer come upon them and want to know what they are talking about. Jack tells them Patrick is just upset that he wasn’t invited to the bachelor parties. Patrick rolls his eyes. Hope still doesn’t want to go after Bo and Billie. She thinks she will just be in the way.

The women are talking about Sami’ and Chloe’s joint wedding showers at Alice’s and how they sure hope Sami’s wedding goes off this time. Jennifer tells Hope that Lucas swears that Sami has turned over a new leaf. Jennifer tells Jack not to have too much fun at the bachelor parties. Jack tells them that the bachelor parties for Lucas and Brady are being held at Alice’s as well. Jen is glad and asks if he is going home with her to get ready. He tells her that he has something to take care of first and will see her later.

After Jack leaves, Frankie continues to make powerless threats. Patrick wants to know what he has on him. All Frankie knows is that there are huge dossiers on him but they are sealed...and even with his clearance, which goes pretty high, he couldn’t find anything out. This tells Frankie that Patrick is even more dangerous than he thought... lol...
Patrick grins and surmises that Frankie must work for a government agency and that he just blew his cover. He tells Frankie that it will probably cost him his job.

Frankie wants Patrick to tell him who he is working for...obviously someone much more powerful than Tony Dimera. Patrick just laughs and tells the other man that he has absolutely nothing on him...and isn’t it interesting that the women have no problem with him but the men think he’s such a threat.

Frankie gets a call from Jack asking him to meet him at the hospital. After he leaves, Patrick murmurs that junior g-man shouldn’t have shown him his hand because now he has the advantage. He makes a phone call and tells someone that Frankie almost has him made and he is going to have to move their agenda up much faster.

Lexie’s Hospital Office: Lexie, Tek, Jack

Tek walks into Lexie’s hospital and she doesn’t seem too thrilled to see him. He keeps nagging her to admit that she loves him and not Abe. She tells him that she does have feelings for him but loves Abe and refuses to leave him. Tek reminds her of how they made love in the office. She tells him that Abe is the father of her child and she made a promise to stay with him. He rags a little on Abe...grrrr...

There’s a knock at the door and Lexie opens it. Jack tells her he’s sorry to be late for their appointment. He apologizes to them for interrupting. Tek leaves and Jack and Lexie sit down. She admits to Jack that the news isn’t good...that things have accelerated and that his death could happen any day...she just doesn’t know. He asks to use her phone and Lexie assumes it’s to call Jennifer. Jack admits that he hasn’t told his wife yet.

He tells her that he won’t let Jennifer find out until the very end. In the meantime he is making plans so that his family will be taken care of after he’s gone. He calls Frankie and asks him to meet him at the hospital.

When Frankie arrives, Jack plies him with questions about Patrick. Frankie admits that he doesn’t know anything yet. Jack tells him about his imminent death. Frankie tells him how sorry he is. Jack doesn’t want to hear it. He just wants Frankie to make Jennifer fall in love with him even faster.

Hope and Bo’s Home: Alice, Hope, Jennifer, Zach, Jack Jr.

Hope has a box of Zach’s outgrown baby clothes out. Jennifer is thrilled that she is giving them to her for Jack Jr. Alice is playing with the little ones...awwww....who are on the floor next to her chair. Jennifer comments on how attentive Jack has been lately. She thinks she might even be pregnant again even though she hadn’t thought of having more children.

LOL...Alice asks them what they are whispering about. When they try to fob her off, she comments on her philosophy that healthy S.E.X. is a sign of a good marriage. Jen is surprised at her grandmother, but Hope says Alice is absolutely right. Hope talks about how great things are between her and Bo, especially with Tony behind bars. Jennifer wonders if Hope is worried about how Chelsea will affect her family. Hope says she is a little worried considering the way Chelsea is.

Both of them hope that Sami actually gets married this time. Alice pipes up that Sami’s isn’t the only wedding that didn’t go smoothly...in fact every wedding after her and Tom’s has had problems...lol...

While Alice is upstairs reading the boys a story, Jennifer comments to Hope how amazing that three generations have heard Alice’s storytelling. Hope and Jennifer talk about how great it is to have each other as friends and cousins. Hope tells Jennifer that Jack is probably being more attentive because of what happened to him...being held captive. She believes that her marriage is solid, however, now with Bo and Billie now knowing the identity of their daughter, things won’t be getting any better.

Previews:

Hope says to Bo that Chelsea is not her biological child. (kind of a question statement)

Bo tells Hope that Chelsea is Billie’s and his daughter. He also tells her that she can’t get past that.

Marlena has her eyes closed and says to Alex: “It’s you!” Just as Alex, leans down to kiss her and says “you remembered!”

Janice’s Spoilers

Bo & Hope’s House: Bo & Hope

Bo tells Hope that Chelsea is having a very hard time accepting him and Billie as her parents. She hates them and doesn’t want anything to do with them...she has accepted the DNA evidence but said some terrible things to Billie. Hope tells him that most of them are probably true. Bo isn’t pleased and asks Hope to give Billie some slack because she’s gone through a hard time herself lately...looking for her daughter... dreaming of being with her...

Hope says she’s sorry and trying to be as supportive as she can but nothing will make her ever forget what Billie did to him while he was under the influence of the poison gas. Bo reminds Hope that he that he thought it was her he was making love to. Hope says she knows that but so did Billie. She asks him how he expects her to ever trust that woman again after that. He tells her that it’s not a matter of trusting Billie...but a matter of trusting him.

An upset Hope tells him that he’s so blind to the tricks Billie uses...and she will now use Chelsea to get closer to Bo. Bo says that she doesn’t need to use tricks because they share a daughter together and are dedicated to being there for her. He also says that Hope is part of the picture too and they have to find a way to deal with the situation.

Hope asks Bo if Billie has asked for some alone time for the three of them. She tells him that she is sure if Billie hasn’t...that she will. He ignores that and tells Hope that they should put the focus back where it belongs...on his daughter who is going through a tough time and he wants to be there for her. Hope tells him that his daughter is beautiful and very smart...she knows how to play people off of each other...look at the way she manipulated Patrick, Bo, and Max against each other.

Bo defends Chelsea and asks Hope if she isn’t being a little hard on her...after all she was in an accident...lost her parents... just found out about her biological parents...so she’s acting out.

Hope tells Bo that Jennifer agrees with her take on the situation and that Bo needs to see that Chelsea is out to get whatever she can. Bo thinks Hope is being cynical. She tells him it’s easy for her to be objective because Chelsea is not her biological daughter. He believes that Hope can’t get past that fact that he and Billie are Chelsea’s parents. She tells him its not just about that and admits to not being thrilled that Bo and Billie share a daughter...but its true and that makes Chelsea her stepdaughter...so she wants to help...but he needs to be prepared that Chelsea is a very troubled teenager...all over the map emotionally, and also very manipulative.

She knows that Bo blames himself for not being there for Chelsea when she was growing up, but he can’t keep looking the other way. Bo tells Hope that he wants things to work out and they will. He kisses her and she tells him that she is pulling for him. He talks about Shawn and Zach having a new sister and them having another daughter and then kisses and hugs Hope again.

Alice’s Restaurant: Brady, Chloe, Victor, Caroline, Sami, Kate, Shawn, Mimi, Belle, Philip, Billie, Abby, Jennifer, Chelsea, Lucas, Bonnie, Bo, Hope, Bart

Brady and Chloe are standing outside with Chloe dithering about going inside. He finally convinces her. They go inside and Belle rushes up with a smile and hug to greet Chloe. Chloe tells Belle that she’s nervous but Belle is supportive and she starts to feel better.

Shawn is working behind the bar and Mimi comes up with a new order. Bonnie tells them both that she’s sorry they have to work tonight and that if Shawn wants to join the guys later, she will tend bar for him. He smiles and thanks her and she leaves. Mimi notices Shawn glancing at Belle and calls him on it.

Sami is mad that she has to share her shower with Chloe. She rags on how Chloe wanted everyone to think she was dead. Caroline wants to know why she is in such a bad mood. Sami tells her she’s nervous because of her wedding track record.

Abby and Chelsea arrive. Abby wants to know if Chelsea is handling the news of her birth parents any better yet.
Chelsea is in a bad mood and says she isn’t thrilled about having Billie or Grandma Kate as relatives.

The camera spans to Billie and Kate as they arrive. Billie is upset about Chelsea and Kate tells her to be patient and not to push or she might just push Chelsea away for good. She goes on about how Bo and Billie belong together...yada... yada... Billie wants her to stop already and get it through her head that this is all about Chelsea.

In another room, Brady and Phil are sitting at the table. They talk about Chloe...Phil’s prosthesis...etc...he’s on a waiting list to get a better one.

Roman is arguing with John about letting Marlena go with Dr. North. John agrees and says he hasn’t been able to get through to her.

Bonnie sidles up to the bar and notices Shawn looking at Belle. She rags on Belle marrying moneybags Kiriakis and treating Shawn so badly...she tells him what a great listener and compassionate person Mimi is. He smiles and tells Mrs. Lockhart that they are just friends but she likens them to a fine wine that just gets better with time....and that Mimi gets her passion from her. Bonnie leaves and Mimi comes up. Shawn is grinning and she wants to know why.

Caroline tells Sami that this time she will have her wedding. Sami wants to know why she is so sure. Caroline lists all the things that Sami and Lucas supposedly have...love, honesty and trust. Sami gulps at the last one. Kate comes up to their table and rags on Sami, saying that all the guests are there for Chloe and that Caroline is probably the only one their for her. Sami tells Kate that she’s just upset because Lucas is marrying her. She leaves and Sami wants to go after her but Caroline stops her.

Kate’s next stop is the bar. She sees Shawn looking over at Belle and tells him that Belle is married so hands off. She also tells him she’s glad to see he is putting his college education to such good use and then walks off. Bonnie comes back and tells him that no matter how you dress it up...trash is trash...lol... Out comes Shawn’s smile again. She tells him to go over to the bachelor party and she will tend bar. Shawn leaves and Bonnie calls someone...Mimi walks up and overhears her mom berating someone for being late. She wants to know what is going on.

In the other room, Victor wants to give Lucas some advice but Lucas says if its about not marrying Sami, that he doesn’t want to hear it.

John finally tells Roman that Marlena is his wife and the decision is his. He tells Roman that he is to blame for everything because he made love to her at the castle.

Kate decides to go over and introduce herself to Chelsea. Chelsea reminds her that they have already met and that Kate turned her down for a job. Kate ignores that and says they should start over and that if she had known who Chelsea was, things might have gone differently. Billie comes up and Chelsea asks her how she could just lose a daughter. Billie wants to talk about it privately and Chelsea takes offense. Billie finally tells her that she and Bo were told that Chelsea was stillborn and then mentions the Dimera family.

Chelsea tells Billie that she had a mother and doesn’t want to call Billie mom. Billie suggests that she call her by her given name. Chelsea is being very nice. Later, Abby wants to know why. Chelsea talks about her moneybags grandma and how if she wants a new car, money...etc...she needs to play nice.

Two guys dressed as cowboys with come in. Bonnie rushes up to them and one of the cowboys, with a facemask, (Bart) starts flirting. She flirts back. Bonnie introduces them and they start their act...stripping...dancing... The women are shocked...laughing...etc... Jennifer comes up behind Abby and covers her eyes...lol... Bart and Bonnie are dancing...his pants down around his ankles (not a pretty sight...sigh). Mimi isn’t impressed with her mom.

Sami is sitting away from it all and she isn’t impressed either. Bart, boxers and all, goes up to her table and demands that she dances with him. He pulls up his mask and tells her that he has a message from the count. Then he pulls her out of the place. Kate murmurs...trust Sami to run off with a male stripper.

Victor tells Philip how proud he is of him and that the baby will have everything. He tells Phil that he is very brave. Shawn is listening in the background and leaves. He comes back in from the bachelor party and tells Mimi he’s going home and will see her later.

Hope walks in and Chelsea sees her from afar. She tells Abby that Hope better enjoy her marriage while it lasts. The first people Hope sees are Billie and Kate. She tells Billie that she heard what happened and is sure that things will turn out just the way they should. She leaves and Billie gets in a snit...lol...she asks her mommy if Hope wasn’t being a tad bitchy back there. Kate is sure that Hope is running scared because Billie and Bo are now a family.

Bo walks up to Victor and Philip and tells them about Chelsea (I wish he had told Shawn first...sigh...). Philip gets a call about the prosthesis and says he has to go because it is ready (boy that didn’t take long...lol...). He’s going to get Belle to drive him.

Alex tells Marlena that he wants to try a new treatment on her. He asks her to trust him and she says she does. He wants her to give herself to him completely. Marlena talks about how hard it was back in Salem with everyone expecting her to remember them. She’s happy that she is with him because he makes her feel safe. He mentions that John keeps calling and she says she has listened to the messages...wants her to go to some weddings for her children but she is nervous.

In the next scene, Marlena is lying down with nothing but a blanket/towel? covering her. Alex places hot rocks on her back for her stress. She starts to relax and he tells her that he wants to use hypnotherapy as well. She asks if its controversial and he tells her that she used it herself many times in her practice.

Alex gives her some herbal tea that he has doctored. She lies back with her eyes closed. He tells her he is going to hypnotize her but that he might go into some areas that are sensitive so he wants her as relaxed as possible. Once she is under, he wants her to go way back to a time that nobody else would remember...to a time when she was in love with a man...a man she still loves today. We get flashbacks of early Marlena and Roman (Wayne) kissing. Marlena says...it’s him. Alex is pleased that she remembers. They start kissing and John walks in on them.

Pat’s Spoilers

Cabin: John walks in on Marlena and Alex kissing. He demands to know what is going on. He accuses Alex of using Marlena’s amnesia to have sex with him. As John advances towards Alex Marlena tells him that if he hurts Alex he will lose her forever. John doesn’t believe that Marlena would do that. She tells him that if he doesn’t come to terms with Alex being in her life he will lose her forever. She informs him that he shouldn’t be here and then she runs up the stairs. John wants an explanation. Alex tells him that he walked into a session. John finds that hard to believe considering the two of them were kissing. Alex says it might have looked that way but Marlena was just reacting to a memory. She wasn’t kissing him but kissing the man she loved. John asks him if he’s trying to tell him that Marlena thought she was kissing him. Alex tells him not to get ahead of himself. He told John that Marlena was kissing the man she loved – there’s no way to know at this time that that man is actually John. Marlena goes upstairs and has a fantasy about Alex kissing her neck and saying that she wants him as much as he wants her.

Alex tells John that he was encouraging Marlena to remember being in love and that’s when she kissed him. John reminds Alex that he assured him that Marlena would remember being in love with him. Alex says only if that is the truth. Marlena comes down and wants to know if the two of them worked things out. John tells her that there is something she needs to know. Alex North is a fraud. He goes on to explain that he heard from the woman who was Marlena’s mentor and the reason Marlena went into psychiatry. She told him that Dr. North’s practices are unorthodox and extremely high risk. The doctor also told him that amnesiacs are more likely to recover their memory if they are in a familiar environment. Alex asks Marlena to excuse him and John. He takes John aside and warns him that he is quite possibly undermining all of the progress he has made and asks John if that is what he wants. John tells him that his little experiment is over. He turns to Marlena and tells her that he will help her pack her bags and then he is taking her home. Marlena tells John that she feels safe there and doesn’t want to go back to Salem. John tells her that all her family is there. He tells her that her step-son, a boy she thinks of as her own, and her own daughter are getting married and they would want her to be there. Alex tries to interrupt but John tells him to stay out it. John tells Marlena that he is her husband. He loves her and he wants her to trust him. He asks her if she trusts him and will she come home with him. She looks at Alex and then John and tells him no she won’t go with him.

Alice’s – There was a lot that went on there in today’s episodes. I won’t go into too much detail – just the highlights. Abby and Chelsea’s conversation boils down to this – Chelsea is in no way shape or form giving up on Patrick. She intends to get oust her mother from Patrick’s affections. She also believes that every thing revolves around money. Abby tries to tell her that Patrick is not hung up on money like his mother is but Chelsea says everyone is. She then decides that even though she doesn’t like her new family she’ll make sure she gets what she deserves. She thinks they should pay for Billie and Bo abandoning her – she doesn’t believe that they couldn’t know their daughter was still alive. Chelsea goes and plays nice with Kate and has this smart business woman completely snowed in under two minutes. Sami tries to warn her newfound cousin about Kate but Chelsea knows how to play Kate. Kate offers Chelsea Sami’s old job and off course Chelsea falls all over herself praising Kate. Sami just rolls her eyes as she walks away. Chelsea comes back and continues her talk with Abby. She warns Abby that her parent’s marriage isn’t as solid as she thinks it is. Chelsea overheard Max confronting Frankie about still having feelings for Jennifer. Abby tells Chelsea she is crazy – her parents are in love and will be together forever. Chelsea tells her no one is together forever and that Bo and Hope’s marriage is doomed. Chelsea then goes and makes nice with Bo. Billie is ecstatic – Hope can see what Chelsea is up to.

Sami is outside with Bart – I like Bart – he’s hysterical. Sami makes a rude comment about his ‘body image’ when he maintains that no one recognised him because he’s there as a stripper. After her insult he says – but I’ve been working out – the expression on his face is priceless. The conversation between them is nothing more than Bart holding the Stan card over Sami’s head telling her that until he hears from Tony that he has escaped she’s not off the hook. Sami tells him her job is done – she gave them the information they asked for. Bonnie comes out and asks Sami if she looking to have one more fling before she gets married. Sami says she was just asking the Lone Ranger if he’d do another routine – LOL! Sami goes inside and Bart and Bonnie flirt and than Bonnie plants a big kiss on Bart. I think I’m going to enjoy watching these two together.

At the bachelor party Bo and Roman talk about Roman’s plan to capture some of Tony’s people with the false information he left on his computer. They congratulate themselves on having a plan in place that ensures that Tony will not escape. Victor makes a couple of toasts. First one for Brady saying that no matter who tried to come between them, Brady’s and Chloe’s love prevailed. (Hmm… wasn’t Victor one of those people??) And then he starts to talk about Lucas’ fiancée. Lucas gets up – he doesn’t want to hear anything bad about Sami. Victor says the only thing he wanted to say was that he wished the two of them would have got together much sooner. He tells Lucas that he knows how love can change a person and he’s happy for him. Lucas thanks him – he knows that Sami has changed. Sami and Lucas end up dancing together as do Chloe and Brady. Kate and Roman have a bit of an encounter that doesn’t go well for Kate – Victor is there to comfort her. Brady takes Chloe back to the cottage. She is surprised when he says goodnight – he doesn’t want the groom to see the bride before the wedding. She wants him to stay – he can see she is scared but he convinces her that everything will be alright.

Loft – Belle and Philip arrive home. They’re excited about the new prosthesis he is going to be fitted for. She would like to go with him. He tells her that she can’t miss her brother’s wedding. She offers to help him pack but he tells her that he has some time. She smiles back at him and they make love. They’re lying on the couch – naked afterwards and they start talking about baby names. Cute scenes – they both seem excited about the baby and very happy. They list off the three boys name and the three girl’s name. Philip decides to go upstairs to pack – Belle enjoys the view as her husband drops the blankets and heads upstairs. She then realises that the loft door has been left ajar – anyone could have walked by and seen her and Philip making love. She goes to the door and overhears Shawn and Mimi. She stays at the door and eavesdrops on the conversation. Mimi is thanking Shawn for the ride home. He tells her it’s not necessary – it’s not like they were even headed in different directions. He offers to look at her car. She says it’s probably the spark plugs or something. She just can’t afford to fix it until payday. He doesn’t know if he’ll be much help but he will look at it. She thanks him for doing that for her and hugs him. He says that he would do anything for her. Belle is upset when she hears this. She continues to listen. Mimi wipes off some gloss from Shawn’s cheek (she gave him a peck on the cheek). They talk about working together at Alice’s. She says it helps that he is there because every time she glances in the direction of the bar she thinks of Rex. She asks him how is was seeing Belle there again tonight – she wants to know if it’s getting any easier for him. Shawn tells Mimi that Belle has made her decision and he has to move on – he can’t think of her anymore. Belle looks very sad. Mimi mentions some kind of marathon on TV and offers to make popcorn. He doesn’t have his keys and she teases him about him leaving them behind again – it’s a good thing she never does. Except this time she has. She goes over to Belle and Philip’s place to get the spare key.

Philip comes up behind Belle as she’s listening to Shawn and Mimi and asks her what she is doing. She tells him that she noticed the door was open. They close it and kiss. When the knock comes on the door Philip wonders who it could be. It’s Shawn and Mimi asking for the spare key. Belle goes to get it. Philip asks Shawn how things are working out at Alice’s. Shawn tells him its okay. Mimi puts her arm around Shawn and says the best part is that he gets to work with me. Shawn agrees – Belle is not happy at all and it shows as she hands them the key. After Shawn and Mimi leave Philip says I told you that something is going between Shawn and Mimi. Belle doesn’t look like she wants to talk about it and is saved by having to say anything by the sound of the buzzer. Philip leaves. Shawn tells Mimi he’s going to take the key back – he hears Belle crying out. She’s doubled over in pain. He asks her what is wrong – she thinks it’s the baby.

Preview: Chloe to Brady (standing in the doorway) – That’s not the real reason you came back. Brady – No. Lucas to Sami – You were just all hot and bothered and now you’re pushing me away. Why? Alex to Marlena – I think you should go back to Salem but only if I am there and able to continue to monitor your treatment. John – Over my cool, dead body. Belle to Lexie (with Shawn and Mimi looking on) – Please tell me I’m not going to lose this baby.

************************************

Wednesday Sept 7

Pat’s Spoilers

Alex’s Cabin: There was a lot of dialogue today so I’m just going to touch on a few things. John tries to convince Marlena to come home for her daughter’s wedding. He tells her that Sami would be heartbroken if she wasn’t there. She remains steadfast in her decision not to go back to Salem. Alex tries to speak several times but John doesn’t want to hear from him. John tells Marlena that one day she will get her memory back and then she will feel terrible that she wasn’t there. Marlena coldly says she can look at the photos. John says yeah but you won’t be in them. He then tells her there is another reason she should come home. Her daughter Belle needs her – she is going to have a baby. Marlena lights up when she hears that. She says my daughter is having a baby. John says our daughter. Marlena says she should be there for that – she can’t miss it. John warily hugs her and tells her he’ll help her pack. She tells him she didn’t tell him she is going home. She wants Dr. North’s opinion. Alex asks her what her instinct is telling her. Marlena says that she is a mother and she should be there for her children. She doesn’t want them to ever feel abandoned. Alex tells her that it appears she has made her decision. He agrees that she should go back as long as he is there to continue to monitor her treatment. John says over his cold dead body.

Marlena confronts John. She thinks John is threatened by Alex. John says he is not threatened he is afraid of Alex and what he is doing to Marlena. Marlena repeats that she trusts Alex and feels safe with him. She talks about what it was like to wake up in that hospital bed with a bunch of strangers around her expecting things from her. She gets very emotional. John sits next to her and tells her he only wants the best for her. He wants her to get back to what she was, a wife, a mother, a doctor. She tells him she will go home for one reason and one reason only – her children and Alex has to come back with her. John has no choice but to agree.

Chloe wonders where Nancy is. She hates being alone the night before her wedding. She opens the door to see if she can see Nancy but instead finds Brady sleeping on the bench. She wakes him up and asks him what he’s doing there. He says he was half way to his Dad’s place when he turned around and came back. He felt guilty for leaving her on her own. She says that’s not the real reason you came back is it. He says no. She says you came back because you were afraid that I was just going to disappear and not show up for the wedding. He says – well were you going to do that? She tells him truthfully yes. He knows she is worried about the scar but she should know that no matter what he loves her. She is worried that he might be marrying her out of pity. He asks her to look in his eyes and tell him if she sees pity there. She says no. He says that because there isn’t any, only love and desire. Chloe doesn’t know how she got so lucky to have a man like him love her. They kiss. Brady’s cell rings. He goes inside the cottage to take the call. Nancy appears and tells Chloe she heard what she said and she is so right. Nancy reminds that she told her all along that Brady would stand by her no matter what. I really like what Nancy says to Chloe about marriage – it was beautiful. I’m not going to type it out because I wouldn’t do it justice. Brady comes out in a blindfold. It’s a really cute scene with both Nancy and Chloe teasing him and Brady making fun of himself. He doesn’t want to see the bride the night before the wedding. Nancy tells him that applies to seeing the bride in her gown before the ceremony – not before midnight.

Sami and Lucas are in the hallway outside of Sami’s door. Lucas says this is the last night they can spend together as single people because the day after tomorrow they are going to be husband and wife. Sami can’t wait to be Mrs. Lucas Roberts – that’s all she wants to be. Lucas tells her he can’t wait to make her his wife. She reminds him that she promised that she would strip for him. He says it’s perfect because Will is spending the night at Arthur’s. Lucas fumbles with the keys as Sami slips the strap of her dress down. They go inside and she starts to strip, she throws her bra back at her but Arthur catches it. Sami is totally mortified. That kid’s reaction was so funny. I really laughed when he told Will that Hillary Duff had nothing on his mother. It was funny when Will snatched his mother’s bra out of Arthur’s hands. Lucas gets the bra from Will and tells the boys to turn around and give Sami some privacy. Sami runs off to the bedroom. Lucas asks Will what he is doing at home. Will says they just came for some DVD’s. Will tells Lucas that they’ll leave now and they get back to doing what they were doing. In the bedroom Sami is flustered and she starts to take her dress off and sees Bart who is obviously liking what he is seeing, staring back at her. She screams and all three guys come running. Bart hides. Sami tells them she saw a mouse. Lucas tells the boys they can leave he’ll take care of it. When the boys leave Lucas starts kissing her but Sami sees Bart in the window again. She pushes Lucas away and he wants to know why. She tells him she is still feeling mortified by what happened. She says that has to make the top 10 most embarrassing moments. Lucas is very relaxed and teasing about Arthur’s reaction. Sami tells him to go and check that the boys are really gone and to shut the lights and she’ll change into some more comfortable (she’s now in a bathrobe). Sami wants to know what Bart is still doing there – she did her job. She wants everything that Tony has that could implicate her. Bart says not until Tony has escaped without any injury. They don’t trust that her information is valid. She says she betrayed her father to get it – the deal she made was to get them the information off the computer – nothing else. Bart warns her that nothing better happen to Tony or her wedding could end up being her funeral. Lucas tries to get in to the bedroom and the door is locked. He knocks on the door and calls out. He thinks he hears someone in the room besides Sami. Sami tells Bart to leave. She quickly changes into something sexy and opens the door. When Lucas asks her if anyone else is there she says no just me and you and they end up in bed.

Shawn helps Belle to the couch. Belle tells him it’s the baby. Mimi comes inside and Shawn asks her to see if she can catch Philip he just left. He then tells Belle that he is going to phone Dr. Bader. Belle says she is on vacation, Lexie is covering. Shawn calls Lexie and tells her that Belle is having cramps. Lexie tells her that she will be right over. Shawn comes back to the couch and asks her if the pains are getting worse. She says about the same and then she moves to lean on his shoulder saying she can’t lose the baby. Mimi comes in to see Belle in Shawn’s arms. She tells them that she didn’t see Phil and he must have his cell phone off because she can’t get hold of him. Lexie shows up and starts to examine Belle. Belle asks her if something is wrong with the baby. Lexie wants to do a more thorough examination. Shawn and Mimi go and wait in the hallway. Shawn is really worried about Belle. He tells Mimi that it was lucky that they were there because who knows what could have happened. Mimi doesn’t say much. Lexie tells Belle she is not in labour and the baby is fine. There is no physical reason for her pains. Belle wants to know what could be causing them. Lexie asks her if there has been any stress in her life lately. Belle flashes back to lashing out at Shawn for being with Mimi. She tells Lexie there have been a few things that have been stressful. (They do talk about having sex and Lexie ensures her that it’s safe for her and Philip to have sex). Shawn wonders what is going on and if Belle is okay. He asks Mimi if she knows what could be causing the pains. Mimi says she’s not a doctor. Shawn says but you were pregnant… he then apologises. Mimi tells him its okay. She thinks that if Belle was in danger of losing the baby that Lexie would be getting her to the hospital. Lexie comes out and tells them that Belle is fine. The pains were caused by stress – she just has to take it easy. Shawn walks Lexie to her car – Mimi says she’ll go in and talk to Belle.

Belle thanks Mimi for being there – she was so worried. Mimi says she’s sure she was but not because of the baby. Belle says excuse me. Mimi says your worried but not about losing the baby. You’re worried that you’re losing Shawn. Belle wants to know what she is talking about. Mimi says the pain, the cramps, the drama. Belle asks Mimi if she thinks she was faking it. Mimi thinks that Belle is using her unborn child to reel Shawn back in. Belle says that’s crazy. Mimi says maybe not consciously but that’s what you were doing and it’s going to stop now. Belle gives her a smug smirk as a response. Belle lashes out at Mimi – gets up and holds her stomach and walks to the counter. She tells Mimi she has a lot of nerve. She’s supposed to be avoiding stress. Belle asks her if she wants her to lose the baby. Mimi tells her that was low. Of course she doesn’t want anything to happen to her baby. She also says but nothing will because there’s nothing wrong with you. She’s doing anything she can to hang on to Shawn even though you’re supposed to be happily married you don’t want anyone else to have him. Belle says that is ridiculous. Mimi says she can deny it all she wants but she can see that it drives her crazy that Shawn and her are friends and have fun together. For once she is on the outside looking in. Belle asks her to admit that she wants to be more than friends with him. Mimi says well that is really none of your business is it Belle. What matters is that Shawn is her friend and she doesn’t want to see him get hurt. Belle says ‘by me’. Mimi says by anyone. But yes especially by you. You’ve hurt him enough. You and I both know that so leave him alone. Shawn returns. He’s happy that Belle is okay – he tells her that she had the both of them (him and Mimi) worried about her. Belle appreciates what they did for her. He asks her if there is anything else he can do. She says she is fine then asks him if he get her more pillows. They’re on her bed. He says fine – pillows and goes up the stairs. Mimi just shakes her head. She tells Belle that she is warning her. Belle mimics you’re warning me. Mimi says you married Philip even though we both know he wasn’t the man you loved. Then you chose to stay with him rather than admit your mistake. Now you’re pregnant and I realise that you’re trying to make the best of it so good luck. I wish you and your baby and Philip a happy life but don’t try and drag Shawn back into it. Belle says she’s not, she wasn’t … Mimi cuts in and says he’s starting to get over you and you can’t stand it. She goes on to say that she doesn’t know what the future holds for Shawn or for me but she wants Belle to stay out of her life. And if she has any sense of decency she’ll stay the hell out of Shawn’s.

Preview: John to Kate – I want you to help me find out what her shrink is really up to. Marlena to Alex with a shocked Brady looking on (in the penthouse) – I’m so glad you spent the night with me last night. Mimi to Shawn - (with Belle looking at her) – Leave it to Belle to ruin her good friend’s big day. Brady (on the phone) to Chloe – Are you ready for a dream wedding. Chloe – I can’t. Brady – What are you saying Chloe? What? Do you want to call off the wedding?

Thursday Sept 8

Pat’s Spoilers

At the police station Abe pays a visit to Roman. Roman without thinking tells Abe to take a look at something. They joke about Roman having to pay a dollar every time he says certain words. Roman says before to long you’ll get your eyesight back and we’ll be working together. Abe wants to know about Roman’s plan – Roman fills him in about the phoney information on his police computer. In the precinct room Bart disguised as a delivery man delivers a package for Roman. Tek signs for it and takes it inside. Bart puts in an earpiece and listens in on what is being said in Roman’s office. Roman discovers the hidden bug and Tek whispers to Abe. Bart hears that the transfer is going down as planned so he leaves and is gone by the time Tek goes to look for him. Roman has to leave to do something. An officer delivers a folder to Tek and Abe. It’s a report about something that Tony apparently said to someone in his cell. Abe is excited – he thinks this means they will get Stan. (Every Stan is talked about in Roman’s office the next scene is always Sami). Roman comes back and Tek tells him the news. Abe doesn’t think this is right. He says he’s been investigating the DiMera’s too long not to know that they probably have someone inside the jail to plant information. Besides the conversation doesn’t sound like anything Tony would say. Roman reads it and agrees with Abe.

At the penthouse Brady comes downstairs and sees Marlena. He kisses her on the cheek. She looks a bit tentative but she smiles at him. She calls him by his name and says she understands it’s a big day for him. He says he is marrying Chloe. He’s happy that she is at home with his dad. Before she can correct him Alex comes downstairs in a robe and Marlena tells him she is so happy he spent the night here with her. Outside the door John and Kate are arriving. He asks her for her help. He wants her to try and find out what Alex is up to. They go inside. Brady wants to know what is going on. John says Marlena slept in the master bedroom, Alex in the guestroom and he slept in the den. He then tells Brady that the only way Marlena would agree to coming back was if Alex came as well – he’s the only person she trusts. They talk briefly about this being a big day for Brady. John then tells Marlena that he brought her bagels and her favourite toppings and some coffee. She says it’s strange what she remembers and doesn’t remember about the food she likes. She remembered that she liked lobster and asparagus when Alex cooked it for their supper. She says Alex and her will have the coffee and the muffins she made. John is shocked to learn that she baked something. Marlena tells him it’s something she discovered she liked to do. She pours coffee for Alex and says just cream, right? He jokes and says you have a good memory. They ignore John and Kate. Kate agrees with John.

Roman arrives and John is rude to him as is Kate. John tells them it’s an important day for their family with Brady’s wedding and they don’t have time for visitors. Kate tells Roman to leave. She was definitely playing the lady of the manor. Roman talks to Marlena and hopes that when she attends their daughter’s wedding tomorrow that she might get her memory back. Roman asks Kate if she told them the news yet. Kate doesn’t think it’s the right time but Roman blurts out that they are getting a divorce. Marlena says she’s not surprised. He slept with her and got her pregnant so their marriage couldn’t have been that strong. She turns to John and says maybe we should get a divorce too. Alex tells her not to be so hasty. She shouldn’t be making any life altering decisions at this time. Before Roman leaves he gives John the I told you so speech about not letting Marlena go away with Dr. North. John admits that it was a mistake. Roman tells John if he can’t find a way to bring her back, he will. John goes to Brady on the balcony and tells him that he can’t be his best man. He feels that he should be by Marlena’s side. Brady understands. John hopes that he can get someone else to do it. Brady has someone in mind. He makes a call.

Alex works on Kate. He knows that she was engaged to John. She tells they thought that Roman and Marlena were dead. He says so now you are in love with two men – just like Marlena was. He wants to know if she has decided she wants to be with John or does she still want Roman. She tells him it’s none of his business. He says it is but her decision will affect his patient. She tells him that she and Roman are divorcing and that John is devoted to Marlena and no one will come between them. John talks to her after her chat with Alex and Kate tells him he is right. Alex has an agenda. Alex sees John and Kate hugging. Alex has another chance to talk to Kate. He tells her that it’s possible that Marlena won’t want either man when she gets her memory back and Kate would have her pick of the two. Kate asks him if that is what he wants. Marlena comes down the stairs in an absolutely gorgeous gown. Alex is already in his tux. John hasn’t changed as yet. John tells her he’ll just go and change and then they’ll leave for the church. Marlena says she is going with Alex. As they are leaving Alex tells John that he should take Kate to the wedding.

Sami wakes up Will and tells Lucas they have a lot to before they leave for the wedding. Lucas is working on the computer. He tells her that he is going to send a picture to the newspaper with their wedding announcement. He asks her to look at it – she is shocked by what she sees. It’s a picture of Stan. She asks Lucas if he was going to send that picture – he opened the wrong file. He shows her the picture. Her phone rings and its Bart calling her Stan. She sends Lucas and Will back to Lucas’ apartment to get ready. It’s just more of the same threats – nothing new. Lucas and Will show up all dress and Sami looks gorgeous as well. Lucas and Sami kiss. She wishes they were getting married today. She asks Lucas if he thinks his mother is going to try and get into the wedding. He tells her that nothing will spoil their perfect day. She thinks to herself, nothing except Tony.

Chloe decides she can’t wait for the doctor so she rips off her bandage revealing a big ugly scar – Nancy sounds horrified – of course it’s a dream. Nancy wakes her up. Chloe tells Nancy she can’t get married if she is going to be scarred for life. Same old same old. Nancy tells her to look around the room. It’s filled with flowers from Brady. She hands Chloe a gift Brady wanted her to have. It’s a diamond bracelet with the inscription Marry me Chloe Forever Brady. Brady phones her and asks if she is ready for her dream wedding. She says I can’t. He asks if that means she is calling off the wedding. He calls her name loud enough for her to hear because she was no longer holding the phone to her ear. She says I can’t wait to marry you. She was so choked up with emotion she couldn’t speak. After they hang up Nancy tells her that she was worried for a second. Chloe is still not sure she can go through with the wedding.

Belle has a dream about Shawn…Shawn is sleeping on Phil and Belle’s couch and he has a dream about Belle. They may be sleeping but these are not dreams they are flashbacks of them at Lookout Point before Shawn crashed his motorcycle again. She wonders why she can’t forget about him. She goes downstairs and caresses his cheek while he’s sleeping – boy, I wonder what her loving husband would think about that? He wakes up. She tells him he didn’t have to stay. He tells her he was worried about her and the baby. There’s a knock on the door. It’s Mimi. She tells Belle there’s a phone call for Shawn and she didn’t know if it was important. Belle tells her they both just woke up. Mimi asks them what is going on. Shawn says he spent the night on the couch. He goes to take his call. Mimi asks Belle what Phil would think if he knew that the minute he left town Shawn was trying to move in on his wife. Belle says it wasn’t like that. Mimi wonders why Belle couldn’t spend the night alone. She claimed to be healthy. Belle says Shawn wanted to stay. Mimi asks her if she didn’t think of asking him to leave. Belle doesn’t want them to argue today – its Chloe’s wedding day. Shawn comes back and tells Mimi that Belle is right. Mimi says of course – Belle is always right. She is perfect after all. Mimi wonders if Belle should go to the wedding – what if she has these pains again. It would be just like Belle to ruin Chloe’s day. Belle gets a call from Lexie – she is all smiles and glowing when she tells Lexie how much she misses Philip. Shawn makes Belle breakfast and tells her she has to eat. Mimi declines. Shawn goes to take a shower. Mimi tells Belle not to make a scene today at the wedding. Belle asks her why she would do that. Mimi says you would do it to get Shawn’s attention. Belle coldly tells Mimi she is going to go and get ready.

I have no idea why Shawn goes with Mimi and Belle to Chloe’s. He looks just a little out of place when they start talking about something old… etc. Chloe mentions that her face is burning. Nancy says that means she is healing and when Chloe is going to start on her pity fest Nancy jumps in and tells her to show them what Brady gave her. They all ooh and ahh appropriately. Nancy has the something old. It’s a locket she bought when Chloe was born even though she wasn’t allowed to keep her. She kept the locket to give to her on her special day. Mimi has the something blue – it came from Bonnie – it’s an off colour fortune from the party at Alice’s. Mimi then hands her a jewellery box – Bonnie has given her sapphire earrings to wear. Chloe says they cost too much. Mimi says knowing her mom she probably stole them from Maggie Horton. Everyone laughs. Belle has the something old – her gold cross. Her and Brady have identical ones given to them by their father. Belle’s phone rings and its Brady. He tells her that John isn’t going to stand up for him and asks her if it alright if he asks Shawn. She says sure. He tells her he is going to phone Shawn and she say you don’t have to, he’s here with Mimi and me. Brady asks him to be his best man – Shawn clears it with Belle first because he doesn’t want her to be uncomfortable. She says she won’t be. He goes to change into his tux. It ends with Chloe saying she doesn’t think she can go through with the wedding.

Preview: Hope to Bo – What Patrick and Billie do in church or out of church is none of your business Bo. Nicole to Sami – You’re still working for Tony DiMera, aren’t you? Will hears and says Mom? Nancy to Chloe – Are your scars healed? Chloe peels back the veil covering her face. Nancy – Oh my god. John to Marlena – Being here is triggering something. Marlena takes Alex’s hand.

Friday Sept 9

Pat’s Spoilers

With this being a wedding day or week or whatever a lot of people were on and all of them had some screen time but not much so this is going to be just little tidbits. Most of the action was at the church except for a bit at the cottage and of course today was the big jailbreak day.

Abe thanks Roman for letting him be part of something again. He wants to be there when they catch Tony trying to escape because Tony is responsible for him being blind. Roman promises him that he can. Tek comes in and tells them there has been a security breach. Abe tells Roman they have to cancel Tony’s transfer. Roman gets on his computer and says that everything is going according to plan. Bart approached Tony’s cell with a tray of food. Tony thinks it’s a guard and says he’s not interested. Bart says Oh I think you will be. It’s a turKEY sandwich. Tony is happy to see them. From their conversation we learn that Tony doesn’t trust the information they got from Sami. Bart tells him she swears it’s legit. Tony says he doesn’t trust Roman – he knows the keystone cops to well. On his computer Roman and Tek are waiting the footage from the security camera in Tony’s cell. Roman immediately knows that is not one of their guards. He zooms the camera in and they see that it’s Bart. Abe asks him if he’s going to arrest Bart now. Roman says no, we’ll let them think their plan will word and we may get more of Tony’s men. Bart sprays the security camera and they lose their feed. Roman and Tek start scrambling. Tony and Bart come out in alley – they went through the sewers. Tony says that was quite the experience. Bart tells him that smelling bad is nothing – he’s free. Roman and Tek yell for them to freeze. Tony says to Bart Roman is a little smarter than we thought. Bart throws a canister of tear guess and they all start running (there are others there to help Tony) and Roman and Tek and some other cops start shooting. They must have fired off 60 shots or more and not hit a thing and to top it off all that gunfire caused the tear gas to explode and they all ended up on their asses. I have to say that I burst out laughing. One of Tony’s men is shot, Bart escapes and Tony is captured. He tells Roman you may have captured me but by doing so you destroyed the life of someone you love.

At the cottage Chloe won’t get dressed until the doctor shows up. When he does get there she insists on seeing him alone. We don’t know what the doctor tells her – we just see him telling her to leave the bandage on until just before the ceremony. She had refused to look when he took it off. She says it didn’t work did it. Again and again we hear her telling Nancy that she won’t marry Brady looking like the bride of Frankenstein.

At the church – this is who is there and I’ll try to remember at least some of what they did. Brady, John, Marlena, Alex, Sami, Lucas, Will, Nicole, Victor, Kate, Belle, Mimi, Patrick, Bo, Hope, Zach, Shawn, Patrick, Billie, Chelsea, Abby, Craig, Nancy and Joy… I don’t think I missed anyone. Apparently Mickey and Maggie are there in some room looking after Joy until the ceremony begins but we don’t see them.

Nicole looks absolutely beautiful. She is dressed all in white and she is carrying a bouquet – you would think she was the bride. She hears Sami talking to herself about how happy she is and of course she tells Sami that unless she helps her stop the wedding she will tell everyone that Sami and Stan are one and the same. Sami tries to tell Nicole that Brady doesn’t love her – he loves Chloe but Nicole doesn’t want to listen to what she has to say. When Sami refuses to help her Nicole says she has no choice but to tell everyone the truth and she is going to start with Lucas. Sami says you have no proof and by the time I’m ready to get married all the evidence that I was Stan will be gone. Nicole says you’re still working for Tony aren’t you. Will comes up and in a shocked voice says Mom. He just wants to know why she is talking to Nicole. Sami tells Will that she is telling her that she is not invited to her and Lucas’ wedding. Will and Sami walk away. Nicole is furious and when she sees Kate she tells Kate that if she stops Chloe and Brady from getting married she’ll help her make sure that Lucas and Sami never get married. Before Kate can answer Victor comes up and ask Nicole what she is doing there, she’s not invited. Kate says she was asking her the same thing. Victor throws her out. Kate asks him what he would do if she tries to stop the wedding. He very coldly says he will kill her.

There are a very few really sweet Bo and Hope moments as they arrive outside the church all smiles and kisses and teasing. Bo tells her that he thinks a guest shouldn’t be more beautiful than the bride. Hope tells him that she doesn’t think Chloe has anything to worry about. Chelsea is excited about the dress Kate bought her. Her other parents could never have afforded a dress like this. Billie says that is her way of welcoming you into the family. Patrick comes up and gives them each a flower. Bo wants to know what Patrick is doing there. Bo asks Chelsea to excuse them. Shawn is with Bo and Hope when Billie tells him that Patrick is her date and Bo says that Patrick is a bad influence on his daughter. So obviously Shawn knows???? Chelsea meets up with Abby and she’s all excited about how she can ‘work’ her new family to get what she wants. And she wants Patrick. Abby tells Chelsea that Patrick could end up being her stepfather. Abby wanted even consider that. Billie asks Patrick what they’re going to do about Chelsea’s little crush on him and he says they will have to show her that he is interested in someone else. They kiss. Bo is furious when he sees this. Hope tells him it’s one thing to worry about the influence Patrick may have on your daughter it’s another thing when you are jealous of him and Billie. She tells him whatever Patrick and Billie do outside the church in the church or wherever is none of his business. Chelsea is all excited that Alice Horton wanted to meet her (apparently she’s there but we don’t see her) and Victor Kiriakis told her that there is room for her at the mansion. She thinks she’s living like a princess now and that will give her the confidence to go after Patrick. Inside the church Patrick and Billie are very close. Chelsea tells Abby that her bitch of a mother is rubbing against Patrick like she’s in heat (boy I like that dialogue coming out of Chelsea’s mouth – not). Patrick says it looks like we’re getting to Chelsea. Billie says and Bo too. Patrick thinks Billie enjoys making Bo jealous. Hope calls Bo on his actions. He says she is the only woman in his life besides his daughter. She tells him that his daughter is her daughter. He thinks that underneath all that attitude she’s a good kid, she’s just had it rough. LOL – you can tell what Hope is thinking and I don’t think she agrees with hubby on this one.

Marlena seems to be very nervous in the church and tells Alex that she shouldn’t be here. She wants him to take her back to the cabin – all these strangers are making her very anxious. John and Kate come in and he hears what she says. He says Doc you can’t leave. She tells him coldly that her name is Marlena. John repeats what he said but using her name this time. Alex backs up what John says about being there for her stepson. Alex and Marlena step away and John asks Kate what he should do to get through to Marlena. She tells him that he has to separate her from Dr. North. John wants to talk to Alex alone. John says as a doctor you take an oath to do no harm. Alex says that is correct. John says by keeping him separated from Marlena he is doing her harm. Alex tells John that Marlena is his patient and he is not harming her. He also tells John that even though Marlena has amnesia she is competent and able to decide who she wants treating her. Unless Marlena tells him that she does not want him to treat her he will continue to do so. John is not happy. Sami approaches Marlena and asks her if she has any memories yet. Marlena says no. Sami tells her that she wants her and her dad to walk her down the aisle tomorrow. Marlena refuses but Sami won’t take no for an answer. Marlena gets agitated and tells Sami that she won’t do it because she doesn’t know Roman and she doesn’t know her. Sami says everyone in town knows you’re my mother and he’s my father. You have to do it you’re my mom. Alex and John come up to them and Alex takes Marlena away to calm her down. John tries to talk to Sami but she tells him this is his fault for letting that doctor take her away to treat her – he’s turning her mother into a zombie. Lucas comes and tells her to calm down. Lucas gets her to promise to stay away from John and not cause a scene at Chloe and Brady’s wedding. All she has to do is remember that tomorrow it will be them. They kiss and Kate watches. When Sami walks away Kate approaches Lucas. He doesn’t want to talk to her and he tells her that she is not invited to his wedding. Belle approaches Marlena. Alex is getting her something to drink. They talk. Belle says it seems like just yesterday that she was a flower girl at Marlena’s and John’s wedding. Marlena is confused by that and Belle tells her it’s a long story. Marlena says she’s sorry but she doesn’t remember.

Brady and Lucas talk – mostly about Brady hoping that Chloe shows up. Lucas and Shawn talk – about whether Chloe will show up. Mimi tells Belle (Shawn is there) that the last time she was here was when her and Philip were getting married). Shawn asks Belle if she is alright – no cramps. She tells him she is fine. Mimi asks Shawn if he is going to be okay standing up at the altar with Belle. He tells her that Belle is married to Philip and that isn’t going to change no matter what. Lucas and Shawn talk about all the paparazzi there trying to get the first picture of Chloe after the accident. They see that Craig is there. They ask him if Chloe is here. He tells them he was waiting at the curb but the limo was empty. Brady says don’t tell me that she changed her mind. Craig assures them that she is in the church. The limo was a decoy and Nancy and Chloe arrived in Nancy’s car. Nancy comes out and tells them no one saw Chloe enter the church. She’s in the bride’s room getting ready. When the guys go inside the church Nancy tells Craig she is worried. Chloe wouldn’t tell her what Dr. Travis said and she doesn’t know if she is going to go through with the wedding. Nancy tells Craig to go look after Joy she is going to talk to Chloe. After some persuading Chloe reveals her face to Nancy – she says oh my god. Belle phones Philip and tells him she wishes he was there and she tells him that she loves him – Shawn hears this. Victor asks Brady if he’s enjoying his last few minutes as a single man. Brady tells him that he can’t wait until he is married to Chloe. Victor says she will be good for him – he didn’t always think so but he was wrong. Brady thanks him.

Finally everyone gets seated. John is next to Marlena and Alex is on the other side of her. He asks her if she is remembering anything about their wedding. She says she is not remembering anything and she takes Alex’s hand. John says you will – he does not look happy when he sees them holding hands. Zach comes down the aisle and gives the cushion with the rings to Shawn – it’s a really cute moment between the two brothers. Bo is snapping pictures…LOL! Joy comes down the aisle dropping flower petals. When she gets to the front she hugs Brady and he gets her to throw some more flowers and they clap. Mimi starts down the aisle and trips. Love the look on her face and the smile Shawn gives her. Belle comes down the aisle and Shawn helps leads her to her spot. Belle has a fantasy of a wedding she could have had if she would have had a backbone. Craig holds out his hand to walk Chloe down the aisle but she hesitates. Outside Nicole is hoping that when Brady pulls back the veil everyone will scream in horror and that Chloe will run out of the church and disappear for good. Finally Chloe and Craig walk down the aisle. It ends with a freeze frame of the expression on Brady’s face when he pulls back her veil.

Preview: John sitting on a bench next to Marlena – I was hoping that you would remember something. Marlena – I did. The priest saying Do you – Belle fainting and Shawn rushing to her. Chelsea to Billie – But all you wanted was Bo. It’s always about a man with you. And now you’re doing it all over again. A crying Nicole to Kate – What do you want Kate? Kate – I want Sami’s head on a silver platter.

Monday Sep 12

Pat’s Spoilers

There was a wedding today but with everyone getting up and to argue or to talk or to eavesdrop I’m surprised there was anyone left in the church to witness the vows. So much was going on that I don’t think I could possibly put this in any semblance of order. I’ll just try and touch on what the people were doing.

Inside the church while the ceremony is progressing…Poor Craig – so many people took off while he was singing a lesser man might have got a complex or something.

Chelsea asks Billie if being at a wedding is hard for her. She asks the questions because she was once married to Bo. Billie tells her that at one time in her life all she wanted was to be married to Bo and have his children. Things are different now. She refers to Bo and Hope being devastatingly in love and for her to be happy she has to move on. She looks at Patrick and Chelsea gets in a huff and runs out of the church. Billie follows.

Marlena has a memory of her last wedding to John. John says he was hoping that watching Brady’s ceremony would help her remember something. She says I did. She then gets up and leaves. John follows.

Tek is outside the church (in a tux) on his cell phone telling whoever he is talking to that they have to learn who Tony’s associates are. Nicole is so angry with Sami for not helping her that she says to herself that Tek is about to get a tip. Tek goes inside the church to tell Roman that he needs to talk to him about Tony.

Outside the church…

Kate follows Tek and Roman and tries to hear what they have to say. She can’t. Tek tells Roman that Tony is not talking. Roman tells him to go through the list of all of Tony’s visitors. Later on Tek tells Roman he got the list and there is one person on there that Roman isn’t going to like. Roman tells Tek he knows that Kate was there. They see Kate and Roman asks her if she wants to tell them what she went to talk to Tony about before he does. She doesn’t want to talk to him. He wants to know how she got in when Tony was not allowed visitors. She says she called John. He says so you went behind my back – he wished he would have known what she was like before they married. He knows that she was trying to get Tony to say something about Sami. She tells him that he’s going to look like a fool when the truth does come out.

Chelsea doesn’t want to talk to Billie but she goes on to insult her pretty good. Billie says she would do anything for Chelsea. Chelsea wants to know why she is flaunting her relationship with Patrick in front of her. She doesn’t understand why Patrick is interested in someone as old as her. She also accuses Billie of abandoning her stating that if she had really loved her she would have known that her baby was alive and she could have been raised by her real parents. She tells Billie that first it was Bo and now it’s Patrick – it’s always about men with her. She flounces off leaving Billie in tears to be comforted by Patrick. Later on Patrick finds Chelsea sitting on a bench and he tells her he has something to ask her. She says if you’re going to ask me when I’m going to ease up on Billie the answer is never. Patrick asks her to go to the reception with him? She smiles.

John finds Marlena sitting on a bench. I’m not really sure if Marlena is telling him the truth or not because what they showed in the church was a memory of their wedding ceremony in the penthouse but she tells him she made up a memory. She ‘imagined’ she was getting married to Roman and then to him because these were things she must have done. John tells her that they went through a lot to be together. He tells her that she was married to Roman when… she stops him and tells him she knows all that. She tells him he should go back inside before he misses his son’s wedding. (He does). He tells her that he is her husband and although it may seem like he’s pressuring her all he wants is a chance to show her that they belong together. She tells him that she knows that she doesn’t want to be with him or Roman right now. Alex is in the background and he is very pleased to hear this. He suggests that Marlena come back inside with him. John tells him he would like some time alone with his wife. Alex challenges him and says that is up to Marlena. Marlena tells Alex that she wants to sit with John for a bit so he moves away. John tries again but Marlena gets agitated and runs inside with both John and Alex following. By this time the wedding is over so Belle tells John that she’ll go after her and talk to her. Shawn asks Belle is she is sure that she is alright and if she wants to go home. John finds out that she had a cramp and fainted. Belle assures them she is fine. John tells Alex that if anything happens to his daughter and her baby he is holding him responsible.

The other drama going on inside the church (but not where the ceremony was taking place) was Nicole lurking around. She’s in the bride’s room with one of Brady’s jackets or something crying wondering how he could be marrying Chloe when he loves her. She’s sitting on the floor. Kate is outside the room sending up a prayer that Sami will be found out when she hears the crying. Nicole clutches Kate’s legs and cries. She finally comes to her senses and stands up wondering why she was getting sympathy from a woman that hated her. Kate says Sami didn’t come through for Nicole but she could. She can’t get her Brady because he’s going to be spending the rest of his life with Chloe but she can help her get revenge and some of that bling bling back but she won’t do it for nothing. When Nicole asks her what she wants Kate tells her she wants Sami’s head on a platter with an apple stuffed in her mouth. Nicole says she will stop the wedding – she won’t help Kate.

Nicole is about to make her move when Victor catches her and threatens her. Nicole tells him that she isn’t scared of him – she might as well be dead if she can’t be with Brady. Victor says she deserves to be locked up and he locks her in the bride’s room. He then phones Nico and tells him that he has a job for him – he wants him to get rid of his soon to be ex-wife. Caroline overhears this. Nicole is trying to get the window open when she hears a key in the lock. At first she is happy but then she realises that Victor had the key so it’s either him or one of his goon’s coming to ‘whack’ her… LOL! She takes the flowers out of a vase and stands behind the door. When the person comes in Nicole hits them over the head. It’s Caroline. Nicole flicks some water on her and begs her to wake up – the last thing she needs is to have killed Caroline. Caroline is so funny when she comes to. She says I’m on the floor and that she’s never seen the bride’s room from this position before. Nicole helps her to a chair and tells her that she thought she was one of Victor’s goons. Caroline says she came to rescue her so she better take off before one of those goons show up. Nicole tells her she’s not leaving without Brady and takes off. Caroline says that girl is not playing with a full deck.

The wedding…(complete with appropriate Chloe and Brady flashbacks)

We have a replay of Craig walking Chloe down the aisle. He tells Brady to take care of her. Brady says he will. Brady then asks Chloe if she’s ready and she nods. He pulls back her veil and smiles. He says now everyone can see you the way I always did – no trace of scars. The priest announces that Brady and Chloe wanted the bride’s father to sing at the beginning of the ceremony. Craig sings the song The Sweetest of Days and the Finest of Nights. Lots goes on during the song. Bonnie tells Mimi that soon it will be her and Shawn at the altar. Mimi doesn’t even bother replying. The other stuff I already mentioned. During one of the readings Bonnie leans forward and says to Mimi that her and Shawn will be next. Mimi tells her mother to give her a break and find a man of her own to walk down the aisle with. Bonnie then has her fantasy of getting married. First it’s Shawn. She’s really into the kiss when she stops herself and says can’t go there he’s Mimi’s. Then it’s Brady next. She thinks he’s a good kisser but too serious for her with all of that opera and symphony stuff. Next is Craig and she is really into the kiss but decides she doesn’t want to have to deal with Nancy. Next is John – LOL – she says Now that’s what I was talking about. That’s a fact. Her fantasy ends with John scooping her up into his arms.

The priest is just about to ask Brady and Chloe some questions when Belle faints. Shawn rushes to her. Sami rushes to her. Craig rushes to her. When she comes to she says oh Chloe I ruined your wedding. Chloe assures her that she didn’t. Belle says she is fine. Shawn asks her if wants to go home. Bonnie urges Mimi to flirt with Shawn instead of letting him moon over Belle. Mimi tells Bonnie that she has officially lost her mind. Bonnie continues telling Mimi that she and Shawn belong together. Mimi tells her mother that Shawn doesn’t know that. As far as Shawn is concerned the only woman in the world is Belle. Craig tells Belle to sit in the front pew with him and Nancy for the rest of the ceremony.

Brady and Chloe have written their own vows. They then exchange rings and the priest introduces Mr and Mrs. Brady Black. Everyone claps and cheers (those that are left in that part of the church that is). After Brady and Chloe are in the bride’s room celebrating their marriage. Nicole is watching them vowing that it’s not over.

Preview: Frankie to Jack – She needs to be told what is going on. She has a right to know. Jennifer approaches them – A right to know what? Bonnie to Patrick – Why are you acting so interested in Chelsea Benson? Bo – That’s what I’d like to know. Alex to John – Can you put aside your fears, your mistrust and do what is best for your wife? Marlena to Belle – Darling I can’t even imagine how difficult this is for you, being pregnant with the wrong man’s child. Belle – What am I going to do?

Pat’s Spoilers

This will be a brief report as I have a meeting this evening. Besides not a lot of anything really happens on the show today. Some people were only seen very briefly. I’ll cover those that were on for more than a minute.

Bo and Hope – Bo is not happy that Billie let Chelsea go to the reception with Patrick. Hope points out that Billie probably didn’t have much choice, Chelsea is a grown woman. Bo grumbles that he thinks Patrick is taking advantage of her because she has a crush on him. Hope says Patrick would never do that - she tells him to trust her on this. They dance. Bo keeps an eye on Patrick and Chelsea.

Jack, Jennifer & Frankie – Jack is being very romantic and Jen is loving it. Jen excuses herself and Frankie approaches. He wants Jack to forget his plan and tell Jen – she deserves to know the truth. Jen overhears this part and wants to know what she deserves to know. Jack covers and makes it seem like Frankie didn’t want to intrude by joining them for a drink. Jen insists that he does – her and Jack have an entire lifetime to spend special moments alone. Lexie comes along and her Jen head to the powder room. Frankie doesn’t like doing this anymore. It’s not right. Jack won’t back down. Frankie insists the only reason he’s going along with it is because Jack guilted him into it. Jack points out that it’s not a real hardship. Jen comes back and wants to dance. Jack twists his ankle and urges Jen to dance with Frankie while he gets Lexie to check his ankle. Abby wonders what is going on when she sees this. Lexie tells him that he is getting worse and that the pain will increase in intensity. She will write him a new prescription and urges him to tell Jen the truth. Abby wants to know what they are talking about. Jack tells her that the prescription is for his ankle and he thinks Lexie is making more of it than she needs to, that’s why he asked her not to worry Jen.

Nicole, Victor & Nico – Nicole watches Brady and Chloe toasting each other in the brides room. She hears someone coming and takes off. Nico catches up with her outside. He tells her Victor wants her taken care of permanently and shows her his gun. Inside the church Caroline urges Victor to not do anything foolish or Nicole just may have the last laugh after all. Nicole pleads with Nico to let her go. Brady married the wrong woman and if she gets the chance to show him what she has in her purse he’ll realise. Victor comes along and tells Nico to take care of her now. Nicole takes off and Nico goes after her. He catches her and says it’s over. At the reception after Victor introduces Brady and Chloe Nico calls and lets him know that Nicole has gotten away.

Brady and Chloe – They were barely on. Showed them toasting each other in the bride’s room. They shared a dance. Chloe thanks Brady for never giving up on her.

Sami and Lucas, Roman, Tek and Abe – Sami is checking the web using her cell phone for any details on Tony’s escape. She says out loud nothing can ruin her and Lucas’ wedding. Lucas hears her and asks her why she thinks something could to wrong. She lies and says that the seamstress has called back about the alterations to her gown. Lucas tells her everything will be perfect and they will soon be a family. Roman tells Abe that he is having Tek check out all the visitors Tony had. Everyone checks out except this one female attorney. Tek is pulling the surveillance tape so they can get a look at her. Tek brings the photos. They look at the pictures (Sami is eavesdropping). They can’t identify the woman – her back was to the camera all the time. Sami is happy. Later on Roman cuts in on Sami and Lucas dancing so they can practice for the father daughter dance. She tells him that he should cut in on Marlena and the quack doctor but he says he’ll leave them alone. She mentions that she noticed him with Abe and Tek and wants to know if anything is wrong and if could interfere with her wedding. He says nothing would keep him away. He tells her that Tony escaped. She pretends to be upset and worried – he then tells her that he was recaptured. Now Sami does have something to worry about.

Marlena & Belle – Didn’t pay too much attention to them. Marlena is not so sure she can be in love with John. Belle insists she is. Marlena wonders how much in love if she had an affair with her ex-husband and got pregnant with his child. Belle tells her that it wasn’t an affair. Marlena bluntly tells Belle she noticed that she didn’t take her eyes off the best man during the service. Belle tries to deny it meant anything. Marlena says you’re still in love with Shawn. Belle snaps that she loves her husband. Marlena says yes but in a different way. She says it must be very difficult to be pregnant with the wrong man’s baby. Belle starts crying asking what she should do. Marlena says she knows what she would have done if she hadn’t lost her baby but she doesn’t tell Belle what that would be. She tells Belle that she has to make her decision and it should be what’s best for the baby. Marlena says she probably wasn’t much help. Belle says she was – she always knows what to say.

John & Alex – More of the same between these two. Alex says bringing Marlena here was harmful to her treatment. John says bringing her home can’t be harmful. Alex proceeds to tell him that a home is where a person feels safe and Marlena doesn’t feel safe here. John feels Alex is the one that is causing harm to Marlena. They go back and forth. First Alex tells him that Marlena may only get part of her memory back and that may be the part where she remembers being in love with Roman. He also stresses that the last thing Marlena remembers is losing her baby so she may only remember being in love with Roman. John says what happened between Roman and Marlena wasn’t love. Alex then says that Marlena may never regain her memory and then she will be lost to him, Roman and everyone else. John says that’s not likely. Alex agrees but stresses that it is a possibility and if that happens John will have to accept it. John tells Alex he doesn’t know him very well. Alex again uses the ‘for the good of your wife’ can’t we put our differences aside argument. Alex goes inside and Marlena asks him to dance. John watches them.

Shawn, Mimi and Belle – Shawn and Mimi arrive together. She thanks for giving her a ride and says she really needs to get her car fixed. He tells her it was no problem. She’s happy they didn’t have to walk in alone at least – like two losers. She then tells him that he doesn’t have to stay with her – he can go off and see who ever he wants to. He says he couldn’t think of anyone else he would rather be with than her but he does have to go say hi to his parents. Shawn sees Belle outside by herself and asks her if she is okay. She says no. He asks Belle what is wrong and she tells him that she was talking to her mother about Roman and John. Shawn says I thought she doesn't remember anything. Belle says she doesn't but her mother doesn't think she could still be in love with her dad if she got pregnant with another man's baby. Belle than says she knows all about that. Shawn asks her if she is saying that she is still in love with him. (Mimi hears the conversation).

Chelsea & Patrick: They are the first to arrive. Chelsea wants to get a soda. Patrick wants to talk. He brought her there to talk about Billie. Chelsea doesn’t want to listen but has no choice. Patrick wants her to cut Billie some slack. She asks why. He says for one thing she is your mother and he knows from personal experience that Billie risked her life looking for her. Chelsea doesn’t know how Billie let someone take her baby from her in the first place. Patrick says it was the DiMera’s. She comments that the DiMera’s get blamed for everything. She agrees to lighten up on one condition – that he dance with her. He agrees. After the dance she goes to get more soda. Bonnie asks Patrick what he thinks he is doing acting so close with Chelsea Benson. Bo wants to know the same thing.

Preview: Bo to Patrick – Now that I found Chelsea I’m going to protect her. Patrick – So what’s the problem? Bo – You’re the problem. Sami faints – both Lucas and Roman call out her name. Kate watches. Jen to Frankie – Tell me what’s going on with my husband. Frankie – Alright I’ll tell you what’s going on with Jack. Mimi to Belle – You’re trying to keep Shawn from being happy and I think that is being cruel and selfish. John to Alex – If you hurt her or I learn that you have played with her mind I will kill you.

Pat’s Spoilers

The entire episode compromises of the reception and all the little subplots. Again a lot of people on so I’m just going to touch on what took place.

Victor: He’s on the phone to Nico who has Nicole again. Victor tells Nico to tie her up if he has to. He doesn’t want her freed until Brady and Chloe leave on their honeymoon. Nicole wants to talk to him so he listens. He doesn’t care what she has in her purse. (We don’t hear Nicole at all) He repeats you have love letters from Brady. Victor then talks to John who is watching Marlena with Alex. He tells John that although it’s difficult now Marlena will get her memory back and remember how much she loves him. John says not if Dr. North has anything to do with it. He goes on to say that he was misled about Alex’s credentials and the doctor now has Marlena totally dependent on him. Victor tells him to fire him. John explains that Marlena can make her own medical decisions. That is why the doctor is here because the only way she would come was with him. Victor says she is home now and that will help. He goes on to say that when he and Caroline were held captive, certain smells or sounds would remind them of home. John says he has tried that but Dr. North says he is trying to make his memories hers. Victor tells him to ignore the doctor and do what he has to do. Victor and Caroline go and wish Brady and Chloe all the best. Caroline recites a poem of Victor Hugo’s. Victor thanks her for remembering. Brady figures out that it was Victor that originally recited the same poem to Caroline.

John, Marlena & Alex: Alex tells Marlena that she has done her duty by Brady and they can leave now. He offers to take her home. She says she would like that. John stops them and when Alex says they are leaving John says he doesn’t think so. He takes Alex aside to talk to him. He reminds Alex that Marlena is his wife and he doesn’t want her harmed in any way. He says if he finds out that Alex messed with her mind or any other part of her body he will kill him. Alex replies that knowing John’s mercenary past he certainly is capable of killing him but he won’t because if he does he will lose the one person that can help Marlena get her memory back. Marlena doesn’t want them to fight. She asks John what he wants. He tells her he wants to dance with her. Alex doesn’t think it’s a good idea. Marlena doesn’t see any harm in dancing with John. She tells John the music sounds familiar. He says it’s one of their special songs. Alex watches as they dance. Marlena tells John that she had a memory of being in his arms. John is thrilled.

The Bradys, Lockharts & Max – Bonnie tells Bo to stop harassing her son or she’ll call the cops. Bo reminds her that he is the cops. Bo and Patrick go outside. Bo tells Patrick that he was kept from his daughter for 18 years now he’s going to look out for. Patrick says that’s the fatherly thing to do and he’s about to leave. Bo isn’t done. He goes on about how Patrick has some of the women in the town snowed but he knows that once you work for the DiMera’s your always tied to them. Patrick says I’m not working for them – Tony is in jail because of me unable to hurt anyone – but he knows that Bo doesn’t want to hear that. Bo tells him to stay away from his daughter. Patrick asks Bo if he’d like to know why he was with Chelsea – it was to get her to ease up on Billie. Bo doesn’t know why he had to put his hands on her to do that. Patrick says it wasn’t like that. Bo warns him again.

Chelsea makes a fake apology to Billie. Billie falls all over herself accepting it. Chelsea sees Max and makes a beeline for him. Billie tells Hope that the ice has been broken, Chelsea apologised to her. Hope says just out of the blue like that. Billie gets all huffy. Hope says she had us all believing that Max attacked her and look at them now. Hope says if Patrick doesn’t stay away from her I don’t know what Bo will do to him. Bo comes back inside. When Hope finds out where he was she tells him that she hopes they weren’t fighting. He silences her with a kiss. They dance. Patrick comes inside and asks Billie if she’d like to go get something to eat – he’s in the mood for dessert. She thinks that is a great idea. Bo and Hope watch them leave. Bo suggests that they leave as well. Hope tells him he was reading her mind.

Chelsea dances with Max (who is now sporting facial hair…Hmmm). She asks him what is wrong. He says his agent called. He hasn’t been on the circuit lately. Chelsea says because of me. He says for several reasons. One of his sponsors dropped him. It’s very difficult to find a sponsor. Chelsea tells him that she will get him one. He says just like that. She says she’ll get Basic Black to sponsor him. Billie’s her mom, Kate’s her grandmother and she runs the company. He says would you really do that for me. She says of course. She asks him if he’d like to go to the lake and pick up where they left off. He says it sounds good but they’ll do it later.

Frankie & The Devereaux’s: Abby has a long talk with her father. She wants to know why Frankie is dancing with her mom. Jack says they belong together. Abby is shocked to hear him say that. Jack says they belong together on the dance floor because I can’t dance. Abby says there is more to it. She keeps pushing him. She can’t believe he’s not jealous. He says that Frankie and Jen were high school sweethearts and now they are very good friends. He is not threatened by their friendship. Abby says there is more to it than that. You have been pushing them together more and more. Frankie stops dancing with Jen and says he can’t do this anymore. Jen asks him what he means. He tells her that he doesn’t want to monopolize her time – she should spend the rest of the evening with Jack. She tells no she wants to stay with him. Frankie is surprised and asks her why. She points out that Jack and Abby are having a father daughter talk and she doesn’t want to disturb that besides she wants to talk to him about Jack. She is relentless and no matter how much Frankie tries to squirm out of answering Jen knows that he is lying to her. She tells him she catches him and Jack in deep conversation and as soon as she comes along they change the subject. She sees the way they look at each other. The two of them are keeping a secret and she wants him to tell her what is. He tries to lie but Jen tells him that he can’t lie to her. She knows him too well. He finally says that he will tell her what is going on with Jack.

Brady and Chloe – very happy and very much in love. She tells him that she know realises that even if she still had her scars she would be the luckiest woman in the world because she had him. They talk about how the time is flying and Brady says some very beautiful words explaining what the day has been like for him. They’re happy with the reception. Caroline asks them where they’re spending the night and going on their honeymoon. Brady says they are spending the night at the cottage. Caroline tells John that she is so happy he never sold the cottage. She knows that he never went there after Isabella died. John says it was too empty but with Chloe and Brady there filling it with love and happiness he may go there more often. Chloe says they are going to Paris first and then anywhere the spirit moves them. Brady says as long as one of the places is a beach. John has flashbacks of his and Marlena’s Hawaiian honeymoon. They cut the cake and feed each other. They do the typical throwing of the bouquet and the garter. Bonnie wants Mimi to get in the line – Mimi tells her mother that she should get in the group. Bonnie flirts very briefly with Victor – Mimi is mortified. Brady says whoever catches the bouquet and the garter is guaranteed to get married next. Sami says just pass it to me then. Brady says he knows that she is getting married tomorrow so she should let someone else have a chance. Chloe throws the bouquet and Bonnie pushes Mimi – and Mimi catches it. Brady removes the garter and tosses it – Bonnie pushes Shawn and he catches it. The look on his face as he smirks at Bonnie is cute and funny. Shawn and Mimi dance. Belle scowls. Brady and Chloe sing. Brady thanks Victor for throwing the wedding and his Dad as well.

Lucas, Sami, Roman and Kate: All Kate does is hover in the background trying to hear the conversation between the other three. Roman says that not only did they capture Tony but they caught some of the people working for him. They were always one step ahead of Tony. They think they can bring down the DiMera organization. Lucas brings up Stan and wonders if he helped with the escape but then he figures that Stan isn’t in town because he knows everyone is looking for him. Roman tells them Tony’s getaway car blew up but forensics is going through what is left for clues. Roman gets another call. He tells them that recovered some stuff from the trunk – lists a lot of stuff including a case of disguise. Sami faints.

Shawn, Belle, Mimi: Shawn asks Belle to answer his question. She says she still loves him and she always will. Mimi hears this and leaves upset. She runs into Chloe and Brady. They see she is near tears. Chloe asks her if she is okay. Mimi tells that she’s always emotional at weddings. Chloe tells her that she will have her happily ever after some day. Mimi and Bonnie talk. Mimi tells Bonnie what she heard Belle say. Bonnie refers to Belle as a spoiled brat who is trying to hold on to both Philip and Shawn. She tells Mimi that she can’t let Belle get away with that. Shawn tells Belle he guesses he knew that. Belle tells him nothing has changed. She’s not leaving Philip – she is going to honour her vows. She is having his child. Shawn asks her if she can look him in the eye and honestly say that she would be happier with Philip than with him. She tells him she is growing to love Philip more every day. Shawn tells her that isn’t an answer. Caroline comes out and says you’re missing the festivities. Belle uses that as an excuse to avoid answering. After the Mimi and Shawn dance Shawn asks Bonnie if she knows where Belle’s wrap is – Bonnie pushes it under the table. She says no. Shawn says he doesn’t know what he’s looking for. Bonnie asks Shawn to look after Mimi. She’s really hurting – this wedding reminds her of what she lost. Shawn asks her what she thinks he can do. Bonnie tells him he can help her pick up the pieces. Mimi finds Belle on the terrace. Belle says Shawn. Mimi says no it’s me. Disappointed? Belle says Shawn was getting my wrap. Mimi says – you can’t even get your own wrap. You’ve always been spoiled but now you’ve turned into a slut. Belle is shocked. Mimi says you’re not satisfied with Philip you have to have Shawn too. Belle tells her she is not leaving Philip. Mimi says you’re not letting Shawn go either. You’re trying to keep Shawn from being happy and I think that is cruel and selfish.

Preview: Abby to Jack – I want the truth, Daddy. I’m not a baby. Are you sick? Mimi to Belle – Step aside. Belle (very haughtily) – Like Shawn would have be interested in you anyway. Lucas to Sami – Whatever they find in Tony’s car I hope it busts that bastard Stan. John (to himself) – I’ve got to get her out from his control. If he tries to stop me I’ll have to kill that bastard.

They make their exit.

John, Marlena & Alex – Marlena tells John that she didn’t really have a memory it was more like a feeling. It was trying to see through a fog but she knew she was in his arms. John asks her if she wants to remember. She says yes, she’s living a nightmare. He wants to take her some place. Alex stops them and wants to know where they are going. When Johns says out Alex tells them it’s not a good idea. He gives the I am the doctor speech. Alex learns about Marlena’s memory flash and tries to dismiss is at being nothing. He tells John the worst thing he could do is to try and force her memory at this time. John is not listening and asks Marlena to come with him. She asks him where he is taking her. He tells her not far – just to the park. Marlena doesn’t think it would do any harm to go to the park. When they get there Marlena is genuinely happy. They go on a carriage ride. John tells her it was one of her favourite things to do. She tells him she isn’t remembering anything but she is enjoying herself. He tells her they would lean back and look at the stars and try and pick out the constellations. He finds one and asks her if she can see it. She can’t so he points it out and tells her the legend of Perseus. How he fought off an army because he couldn’t live without the woman he loved. John tells Marlena that he knows the feeling. They almost kiss but Alex stops the carriage and insists that Marlena. John doesn’t want her to leave but she says he’s the doctor and he knows best. Alex takes her arm and says let’s go home. John vows to get her out from under his control and if Dr. North tries to stop him he will kill him. Alex had a short encounter with Victor. Victor very subtly threatens the doctor – loved that scene. Victor is definitely back. Alex also has a short encounter with Kate. They exchange barbs. Alex leaves her with the thought that Marlena could love Roman more than John.

Kate, Roman, Will and Lucas – Sami comes to and asks what happened. When she finds out she fainted she tells them it was because she is so excited that she is marrying Lucas tomorrow and because it’s warm in here. Kate butts in and says Sami is lying. She fainted because she was listening to her father talk about all the evidence they had on Tony and that evidence was going to prove that they worked together. She calls it cause and effect. Will and Lucas both defend Sami. Roman gets another call. Sami asks Lucas to go and take Will to the bar for a soda she wants to talk to Kate alone. Neither Lucas nor Will want to leave her alone with Kate. Sami promises them no bloodshed. I’m really tired of their arguing so I’m not going into detail. Kate makes reference to who Sami was disguised as. Not Stan but it’s the lawyer she is talking about. Sami admits going to see Tony in disguise but she also knows that if Kate tells him that he won’t believe her. Kate accuses her of working for Tony. Sami denies it and says there is no proof. The argument gets heated and Lucas and Will return. Lucas and Will both yell at Kate and tell her to leave. Roman tells them that everything in the trunk was destroyed and there is no DNA evidence on the disguises. Sami is happy that nothing can link her back to Stan.

Chelsea tells Max that Chloe and Brady look very happy and in love. Max makes it clear that he isn’t looking for that time of relationship – he can’t see himself having to stay faithful to one woman. Chelsea looks kind of sad when he says this. Max has a short talk with Frankie. Max mentions that he saw Frankie spending time with Jennifer. Frankie says he was being a friend. He points to Jack and Jen who are dancing and talks about how in love they are. Max says you never stopped loving her. Frankie tells him that when you love someone you want them to be happy. Frankie tells Max that one day he’ll find someone like that to love. Max isn’t looking for that kind of relationship. Frankie asks him to Max an interesting question – he says when you are Mom and Pops age are you going to want what they have or are you still going to be on the prowl trying to score a chick. Max and Chelsea meet up again. Chelsea wants to go to the lake and have some real fun. Max wants to slow things down. She taunts him about not living up to his hype for being fast. He tells her that he wants a relationship with her. He wants to get to know her first but he promises if things get boring he’ll speed them up. He asks her if she’s willing to go along with him. She says yes.

Abby asks her Dad if he’s sick. She wants the truth; she’s not a little girl anymore. He says that he hasn’t been feeling well since he returned but he went to Lexie and she checked him over. Abby wants to know if he’s okay or sick. He says he will be there watching over his family always. Abby then talks about the wedding and how beautiful it was, like a fairytale. Jack gets sentimental and says I can’t imagine what you’re fairytale wedding will be like. He tells her he’s though about walking her down the aisle, the father daughter dance. She tells him it will be a long time before that happens. After high school, there’s college, maybe grad school, starting her career and finding the right guy. Jack tells her that they should practice that dance know because he wouldn’t want to embarrass her on her big day. They dance and he imagines Abby is the bride. The song is beautiful.

Jen tries to get Frankie to tell her what is going on. Frankie admits that Jack did confide something to him but he swore him to secrecy. Jen finally convinces him to tell her what it was. Frankie says he is madly in love. Jen wants to know with whom. He says you. Jen can’t believe it was just that. He says it’s very difficult for one man to tell another man how he feels about a woman. He tells her that he kept tabs on them when he was away and he knew they had split up. She is surprised to hear that. He tells her he didn’t have her spied on, he just kept a subscription to the Spectator and with satellite TV he saw both her talk shows. He says seeing them together he knows she made the right choice. He tells that she should enjoy every minute with him and her family. They watch Jack and Abby dancing. Jen makes a comment about how one day they’re learning to walk and the next…

Bonnie tells Shawn that she is very worried about Mimi. Mimi is putting on a good act but Rex broke her spirit. She needs a good friend. Shawn promises that he will be there for her. Bonnie pours it on saying she can’t sleep for worrying about Mimi. Rex leaving her like he did robbed her of her will to live. Shawn says he’s sure she can understand why Rex was upset. He needs time to cool down. He really loved Mimi. He’ll come back. Bonnie says that’s never going to happen. Shawn tells Rex loved Mimi just like I… He stops and says Rex won’t give up. Bonnie tells Shawn that he hasn’t seen the letters and emails Rex has been sending. They are hateful – they have destroyed Mimi’s self-worth. She believes that she doesn’t deserve to be loved. Shawn thinks that is ridiculous… he starts listing her good qualities including her loyalty. He thinks she’ll be fine when she finds a new guy to be with. Bonnie asks him how she’ll do that. In high school there was always a group of them together so she had the chance to meet new people. Then she and Belle would have a girl’s night out but that’s over with now that Belle is married. Shawn promises he will be there for Mimi and help her through this. Bonnie says you two can help each other. Bonnie tells him to get her out of the apartment even if she doesn’t want to go. Shawn says he has to find that wrap and get it to Belle. Bonnie says we wouldn’t want the little mother to get cold. He finally finds it and heads off to the balcony. Bonnie says to herself give Belle her wrap and then focus on Mimi.

Mimi accuses Belle of never wanting Shawn to be happy. Belle says that is not true. Mimi asks her why does she keep giving him signals that he still has a chance with her when they both know she is never going to leave Philip. Belle denies that she is sending any signals. Mimi says then why did you have him spend the night the minute Philip left to get his new prosthesis. Belle goes oh please he slept on the couch and it was his idea. Mimi says it’s strange how the cramps didn’t start until Philip, didn’t start until Belle heard her and Shawn talking and laughing in the hallway. Belle says that was a coincidence. Mimi continues and strange that Dr. Carver couldn’t find anything wrong with you or your baby. Belle says that didn’t mean anything. Mimi says of course it did. You were faking it. Belle says she was in incredible pain. Mimi says if she was it was psychosomatic. The perfect way to tug on Shawn’s leash again the minute he decides to walk away from you. Belle – why would I do that? Mimi – Because you can’t let him go Belle. You still love him. That’s why you have him on hold. Admit it Belle, if it wasn’t for your baby and Philip’s leg you would say to hell with your marriage vows and race back to Shawn.

Mimi keeps pushing. I’m right, aren’t I? You love Shawn more than you love Philip it. Belle asks Mimi why she is doing this. Mimi – Answer me, damn it. You love Shawn more than you love your husband, more than you love the father of the baby you are caring, don’t you? And you make sure Shawn knows it. I heard you telling him that tonight. He deserves better than that, Belle. Belle – Oh my god. You’re in love with him. That is what this is about. You’re in love with Shawn. I knew Shawn was your first crush but you’re really still in love with him, aren’t you. You’ve been in love with him this whole time. Rex was just… Mimi yells Hey I loved Rex. Belle sneers – but not the same way you love Shawn. Mimi – Shawn had given you his heart Belle and I respected that. I always have. But you didn’t. No you ripped it up, stomped on it and threw it back at him when you married Philip. Belle – Shawn’s the one that left me and ran off with Jan Spears. Mimi – Because she drugged him. Belle – I didn’t know that then. Mimi – He tried to tell you that he couldn’t remember how he and Jan hooked up. He said there was something suspicious about it. You should have believed him. If you really loved him you would have believed him. I did. But no, you didn’t care. You were too busy falling in love with Philip. Or were you just using Philip to get back at Shawn? Belle – Of course not, I love Philip. Mimi – Well good, good because you married him and you’re having his baby and like you just said you love him. So why can’t you let Shawn go? Because you love him to or because you’re still punishing him for leaving you? Belle – No. I would never want to hurt Shawn. Mimi – well you are. You have made it perfectly clear that it is impossible for the two of you to be together. But at the same time you’re making sure that he isn’t with anyone else either. Belle – What am I supposed to do? Mimi – The decent thing. Step aside the way I did. Belle – Right, like Shawn would have been interested in you anyways. Mimi – I can’t believe you said that to me. What you think I was too much of a loser back then for Shawn to have been interested in me? Belle – That’s not what I said Mimi. He wouldn’t have been interested in you because he was in love with ME. Mimi – But now he can’t have you so why don’t you stop being such a selfish whore and let him go. Belle – I’m not holding on to Shawn. Mimi throws up her hands (she’s not the only one) – Give it a break, Belle. Belle – I’m not. I can’t help it if he doesn’t want to move on. Mimi – He does. He does want to move on but you keep playing him. Every time he’s about to let you go you come up with some crisis to reel him back in with. Every time he and I … Mimi stops … That’s why you’re doing this. It’s because of me. Because you’re afraid if Shawn falls in love with me you’ll never be able to get him back. Shawn is there and he looks from one to the other.

Preview: Chloe to Brady – I have a confession to make to you. Brady – Confession? Chloe – I haven’t been faithful to you. Philip walking into the loft – I’m home – sees Belle and Shawn – Want to tell me what the hell is going on here? Sami sitting on her couch talking to herself – All my dreams are coming true. This is the happiest day of my life. Marlena – I want to remember this. Split screen – John and Alex.

Janice’s Spoilers

Isabella’s Cottage: Chloe & Brady

Brady carries the smiling bride over the threshold. Chloe gasps in amazement when she sees all the flowers he arranged for her to have. She tells him that he has created a paradise for them. He says that he did it because he knows how much the cottage means to her. They start kissing and fall back on the bed.

Chloe comes out in a beautiful negligee. Brady pours them both flutes of champagne and makes a toast to his beautiful wife and to their future...may it be everything they want it to be...this is only the beginning. Brady asks her if she is excited about their honeymoon. They talk about going to Paris and then on a Mediterranean cruise with his father’s yacht...private Greek islands. Chloe thinks it sounds amazing.

Brady says and then they will come home and start accepting visitors. She gets a strange look on her face and he asks her if something is wrong. Chloe talks about the miracle of losing her scars and how his love has transformed her...made her strong...he is her rock. She kisses him and tells him that before they make love as husband and wife, she has a confession to make...she hasn’t been faithful to him.

Brady doesn’t think Chloe could ever be unfaithful to him. She starts crying and says that she was unfaithful to their love because she let him think she was dead and that was a horrible thing to do to someone you love. She apologizes for keeping the truth from him. He tells her that he can’t accept her apology. He smiles and says there is nothing for her to apologize for. He wishes that she would have trusted him more because he wanted to be there for her, but he loves her and understands. She’s surprised but Brady says that the worst thing they can do is start their marriage off with regrets. He promises that they will never be separated again and vows to love, honor, and trust her for the rest of his life. They start to kiss and make love.

Brady tells Chloe that they are invincible. They start to make love again.

Outside Wedding Reception: Mimi, Belle, Shawn

Mimi realizes that Belle is afraid of her. She thinks it’s because if Shawn falls in love with Mimi then Belle is afraid that she will never get him back. Belle looks shocked. Shawn walks in on them at that moment and gives Belle her shawl. He asks if she is okay and says that she looks pale. She tells him she’s fine. He asks both girls what is going on.

Shawn tells Mimi and Belle that it seems pretty obvious that something was going on, and asks if either of them want to fill him in. Mimi tells him they were just talking about the wedding. He looks skeptical and tells them they both look pretty unhappy. Belle replies that she’s exhausted and going to grab a cab and go home. Her dad already took her mom home so she doesn’t have a ride. Shawn offers to take her home. Mimi murmurs that it’s pretty convenient. She tells him she’s going to stay and talk to her mom and get a ride home with her. She tells them to run along.

Bonnie comes up to a despondent Mimi and berates her for letting Shawn run off with Belle. She tells her daughter that she had better start working harder or she will lose her chance to be Mrs. Shawn Brady. She can’t believe that Mimi is her daughter sometimes. Mimi wants to know if it’s because she doesn’t feel comfortable chasing a man like she does. Bonnie warns her that she can’t let Shawn slip through her fingers when she is this close to reeling him in. Mimi drolly explains that Shawn is not a trout...lol...and asks what makes Bonnie think that she can get him anyway. Bonnie admits to talking to Shawn and Mimi is mortified. Bonnie tells her that she told Shawn that Mimi and Rex were finito and that Mimi was heartsick about being alone. Mimi can’t believe she did that and says that her mom made her sound so pathetic. She doesn’t want Shawn to ask her out because he is sorry for her.

Bonnie says: “You love him right?” Mimi thinks this is so humiliating. Bonnie wants her to answer the question...does she or doesn’t she love Shawn Brady? Mimi admits to liking him...okay...liking him a lot...and yes the more time they spend together the closer she feels to him. She admits to her mom that she doesn’t want to lose him to another woman. Bonnie tells her to make the most of what she has. Mimi looks confused. Bonnie tells her to check out the mirror... she’s a knockout...has a body that won’t quit and besides... she and Shawn live together. Mimi says they are only roommates. Bonnie says that he is a man and she is a woman and she should flaunt it...make him realize what he’s missing...make him weep. Mimi is shocked and tells her mom that she is not going to use sex to trap Shawn and that if anything happens between them if has to happen naturally.

Bonnie persists but Mimi stands strong and tells her that she is sorry if she is a disappointment to her mom but she is not going to lower herself like that. Bonnie asks: “Even if it means that you could lose Shawn forever?”

Belle’s Loft: Belle, Shawn, Philip

Shawn asks Belle if there is anything else he can do. She asks him to make her a cup of herbal tea and lowers herself to the couch. She mentions that she is too wound up and probably won’t be able to sleep. Phil comes in and says that he got back early and wants to know what the hell is going on around here.

Shawn explains that he brought Belle home from the wedding reception. Belle tells Phil that Shawn was just making some tea for her. The phone rings and its Lexie. He asks Belle if she was sick and she tells him about the cramps. He wants to know why she didn’t call and she tells him that it happened right after he left...that Mimi tried to call him but there was no answer...she’s okay and so is the baby. Belle walks away to talk to Lexie. Phil tells Shawn that it was good of him to look after her. Shawn says that he’s just glad that he and Mimi were close by and that Lexie said it was nothing to worry about...probably a false alarm.

Belle comes back and Phil says he overreacted and should probably apologize but he didn’t expect to walk in and find Shawn there. He models his new leg for them and says it’s fantastic. He can’t believe how much all of their lives have changed...Brady and Chloe married...Lucas and Sami getting married tomorrow...him and Belle married and expecting a baby... Shawn decides to go and tells Belle to take care of herself. They stare at each other for a few seconds and then he leaves. Philip looks at her strangely and says: “You have something to tell me don’t you?” And she nods.

Belle tells Phil that Shawn has been a good friend but that’s all he’s been. She starts to smile because the baby is kicking up a storm and puts Phil hands on her tummy. He starts talking to the baby and tells Belle that they will be much closer now and he loves her. He’s glad that Shawn and Mimi were there for her and is sure that she’s still upset because of Mimi. Belle isn’t so sure that Mimi will come around. Phil thinks that Mimi and Shawn can be happy together. He talks about how great it would be if Shawn and Mimi fall in love...get married...have kids...then their kids could play with each other.

Shawn’s Loft: Shawn & Mimi

Shawn comes in looking upset. Mimi walks out in a bath towel and tells him that she used his shower because the plumbing in hers is a mess...she thought he would be a little longer with Belle. He tells her that Philip came home and that he’s doing fine. She says that she is happy for both of him and he agrees. Mimi hears her mom’s voice telling her to go after him. She asks him if he is really happy for Belle and Phil. Shawn says he doesn’t want to talk about it. Mimi tells him that she is going to bed. Shawn hears Bonnie’s voice again telling him about Mimi. He tells Mimi to wait up...he has a proposition for her.

Shawn suggests that they watch Jurassic Park III because he remembers how much Mimi loved the movie. She reminds him that they went with Belle and how they were too busy making out to watch the movie with her. He tells her that is why he wants to watch it this time. Shawn offers to make popcorn. Mimi is going to go and get dressed but he tells her that she’s fine the way she is.

Penthouse: John, Marlena, Alex

The three of them return to the penthouse. Alex says that their doorman was right and that it is suffocating in there. John tells him that it’s just too bad he cut their carriage ride short. Marlena tells John that she’s fine. He suggests that she go take a shower and getting into something lighter and says that he has a surprise waiting for her. Marlena leaves. John tells Alex that he is working really hard to help his wife remember and that they almost had a breakthrough before Alex interrupted their carriage ride... and what he has in mind could be just the thing to trigger Marlena’s memory...because she is going to Samantha’s wedding tomorrow and WILL remember her daughter.

Marlena comes downstairs in a beautiful negligee and robe. John plays the song from the wedding reception for her. Alex butts in and tells Marlena that she has had a long day and should go upstairs and rest. Marlena asks him what could be more restful than listening to the beautiful music. She can almost remember it but not quite. Alex persists. John suggests that Marlena go out on the balcony and enjoy the breeze...she can hear the music from there. She asks him to join her and he tells her he will be out just as soon as he says goodnight to Dr. Norton.

Marlena leaves and John tells Alex to get out. Alex repeats that Marlena is his patient and he has a responsibility to her. John tells Alex that what he really wants to do is throw him off the balcony...lol...but Marlena wants him there and he doesn’t want to do anything to upset her. He says that he is going out to join his wife and tells Alex not to come out there.

John joins Marlena on the balcony and gives her a gift. It’s a blue topaz necklace...Marlena has always had a thing for that stone. Marlena gasps and says she guesses she still does. She tells John that he makes her feel so......... He finishes her sentence and says “loved? Good because you are!” She says she was going to say...protected...cared for. John puts the necklace on her and tells her it’s beautiful just like her. He thinks it’s a shame to let the music go to waste and they start to dance. Alex moves into our vision then and watches them. Marlena likes the song. John tells her that they danced to it before. We get a quick flashback of them dancing in the past. Marlena asks John if it was at a wedding. John wants to know if she remembers whose wedding it was.

Marlena tells John that she feels she is close to remembering. He thinks that maybe if she stops trying so hard and keeps dancing that it will come to her. She goes into his arms again and then pulls back saying she is feeling tired and maybe Alex was right and she should get some rest...it’s a very big day tomorrow. John agrees and tells her that they had a breakthrough tonight and if they keep working at it maybe they will see some progress. He asks her to promise not to stop trying. She tells him that she wants to remember this.

John tells her to get a good night’s sleep and in the morning they will pick up where they left off...maybe something else will come to her. She looks skeptical but tells him she believes him and kisses his cheek before going inside and up to her room. John walks back in and Alex tells him he’s going to call it a night as well. John warns him to stay in his own room and shows him an electronic device that will tell him if anyone goes into his wife’s room.

John is outside of Marlena’s bedroom and whispers...sleep tight my love. Then he turns on the security gadget. Marlena is asleep and has the necklace in her hand. Alex is inching his way outside of her room and jumps in.

Sami’s Apartment: Sami & Lucas

Sami and Lucas come home and she tells him that she is on a wedding high. She also says that Chloe was a beautiful bride. Lucas agrees and tells Sami that everyone will be saying the same thing about her tomorrow. Sami can’t believe that Lucas isn’t nervous. He tells her that he is marrying the woman of his dreams. She tells him that they are having the wedding of her dreams but that she has so much do to before the ceremony. She doesn’t want him to leave though. Lucas suggests that since their son is asleep, they take some alone-time for them. They start kissing. Sami stops him...superstitious about sleeping with him the night before the wedding. She is sure he thinks she is crazy but he tells her that he thinks its sexy and that they should live dangerously. They start kissing again.

Sami reminds Lucas that he isn’t supposed to see her until she walks down the aisle. He tells her that their wedding day doesn’t officially start until midnight...lol...so why doesn’t he set the alarm and then he’ll go when it’s time. Sami asks him what she is going to do with him. He tells her he has a few ideas and then sets his watch. They have one hour and twenty-one minutes left. She doesn’t want to tempt fate. Lucas realizes how worried she is. She mentions her history with weddings but he promises her that it won’t happen this time because he loves her and he won’t let it.

Sami and Lucas are lying on the couch after making love. She accidentally leans on the remote and the television goes on. They hear a reporter saying that Tony Dimera has been recaptured but the car he was in was destroyed and everything in it. Lucas says they have to capture that son of a bitch Stan. Sami doesn’t think it will happen because he’s probably not going to show his face around Salem again. She tells Lucas that his obsession with Stan is going to ruin their marriage. He tells her he can’t forget about him until he gets what’s coming to him. She knows he hates Stan but wants to know why he is going to let this ruin what is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives...they are getting married tomorrow after so much misery...isn’t this more important to him than some guy who used to work for Tony Dimera?

Lucas tells her that he can see how upsetting this is for her and promises not to bring up Stan’s name until after the honeymoon. They kiss and Sami says that the Sami Brady wedding curse has officially been lifted...no one can stop them now...not Kate...not Tony...and certainly not Stan. She realizes that it’s almost midnight. Lucas begs her for one last kiss and tells her he loves her...Sami Brady...tomorrow he will say he loves Sami Roberts. Lucas leaves and Sami whispers that Tony Dimera has nothing on her and she is going to marry the man of her dreams. The screen splits to show Sami and Sami changing into Stan.

Janice’s Spoilers

It’s morning again...lol...yesterday was probably the shortest day in Salem so far!

Jack & Jennifer’s House: Jennifer, Hope, Bo, Abby, Chelsea

Bo and Hope are dressed for Sami’s wedding and talking to Jennifer. Chelsea and Abby come into the room and one by one it looks as if the older generation’s eyes are going to pop out over Chelsea’s clothing choice...er...lack thereof...tight red mini-skirt and a flashy gold halter top...lots of skin showing. Chelsea talks about how her Grandma Kate is the best thing since sliced bread...generous...bought her all these wonderful outfits from Paris, etc. She and Abby go into the kitchen. Jennifer looks at the others in shock.

Bo looks shell-shocked as well. He stumbles over his words saying that he can’t possibly talk to Chelsea about clothes...and why would Kate do such a thing...lol... Hope thinks it’s probably the hottest thing in Paris at the moment. Jennifer chimes in dryly...or Vegas! Bo looks at both of them but Hope tells “Beauregard” to buck up...it’s his daughter...go in and be a dad.

Chelsea is showing Abby her new outfits. Abby tries to convince her not to wear the outfit but Chelsea wants to impress Patrick and is sure he will notice her now. She rags on Billie being over 30. Abby tells her that Patrick is too but Chelsea tells her it’s different for guys. She wants Abby to dress so the guys will notice her as well and pulls another mini-skirt and halter top out of the pile for her. She thinks the guy from the Java Café is a nerd.

Jennifer mentions how long Abby and Chelsea have been friends, but that if Chelsea is going a bad influence on her daughter...Jennifer won’t let Abby be with her. Bo says he understands. He tells them that he can’t let his daughter go out looking like a... Hope finishes his sentence... “hooch”...lol...and he looks like a drowning man.

In the kitchen, Abby doesn’t want to accept the clothes but Chelsea insists. Abby can’t help but be excited and mentions how when they walk in the church no one will notice the bride. She leaves just as Bo walks in. He tells his daughter that there is no way she can wear the outfit she has on.

Jennifer and Hope are talking when Abby makes an entrance...eye-popping scene #2. Both Jennifer and Hope are shocked to see Abby with so much make-up on...a sophisticated hairdo...mini-skirt and halter top. When she tells them that she got it all from Chelsea, Jennifer orders her to march right back up the stairs before her dad and grandmother see her. Abby complains that she doesn’t have any clothes to wear. Jennifer suggests her black dress...the one Abby wore to Jack’s funeral. Abby wants to know why Chelsea can dress like this but she can’t. Hope is sure that after Bo’s talk that Chelsea won’t be dressed like that either. Abby stomps away to change.

Chelsea does a number on Bo...playing on his heartstrings...poor little me...my parents are gone...I feel so alone...this outfit makes me feel good...etc... Chelsea tells Bo that she thinks he doesn’t like her...she’s been looking forward to spending time with her new family. They compromise and she agrees to wear a shawl or something else. She calls him dad and they hug. Bo tells her that he doesn’t want other guys to get the wrong idea about her. Chelsea leaves and Hope comes in. Hope starts looks at the clothes on the table. She looks at Bo...shakes her head...and says...OMG you are going to regret this.

Bo explains about the good talk he had with Chelsea and that he feels good about it. He tells her that it’s not like dealing with Shawn or Zach. Hope says that is because the boys don’t have Chelsea’s bag of tricks. Cue an exasperated look from Bo. He thinks it’s too bad that Hope sees his daughter in a negative light and mentions how he did crazy things at that age but still turned out to be a responsible person. He thinks that a trendy Parisian outfit isn’t going to send Chelsea on the road to hell. Hope says it’s not trendy and that Chelsea needs discipline...she needs to learn to behave appropriately. He wants to know if she is implying that his daughter is a tramp.

Abby comes downstairs in a different dress and Chelsea rags on her about it. Chelsea is a little better covered now. She tells Abby that the guy of her dreams could be at the wedding but he’ll never notice her dressed the way she is. Bo and Hope overhear them. Hope turns to him and says: “Well dad, you’re going to have to live with the consequences of this one”...lol... Jennifer comes downstairs in a beautiful dress. She tells them that as soon as Jack gets downstairs, they can go. They talk about the wedding with hope saying that whatever else, it won’t be boring.

Billie’s Apartment: Billie & Kate

Both are not dressed for the wedding and sitting on the couch bemoaning the fact that Lucas is making a huge mistake. Kate tells her daughter that she wasn’t invited to the wedding.

Kate hopes that Sami gets struck by lightning...just as they hear thunder, and Kate says in surprise: “It could happen you know!”

Penthouse: John, Marlena, Alex

We see Marlena having a conflicting dream. She turns her head and sees John giving her a beautiful flower and talking about her having to get her memory back. She turns her head the other way and we see Alex telling her to rest and that he will take care of her.

John is downstairs when Alex comes down. He is sure that no one came into his wife’s room. We see a flashback of Alex climbing in through the window with a cassette tape. He whispers to her that it’s just what the doctor order and that she will have a peaceful night and wake up in a perfect mood. Marlena is still holding on to the pendant in her sleep. Back in the present, Alex tells John that he just wants Marlena to become more like herself.

Up in her room, she wakes up and looks at the mirror. She says in a monotone...and now for a perfect day. We get another flashback of Alex in the room with a sleeping Marlena. He turns on the tape recorder and she repeats everything he says...Marlena needs him...he will always be there for her... Back in the present he tells John that he is not a doctor and he doesn’t have the control he thinks he does. John says its because Alex is getting in his way. Alex reminds John that he hired him to help his wife.

We get the rest of the flashback with Alex telling a still sleeping Marlena that she is swimming and when she gets into trouble she will call for help. Marlena whispers that it’s John who swims out to save her. Alex counters that as says that it is Alex who swims out to save her...Alex will always be there to protect her...to help her... Marlena repeats his words. Alex slips the tape recorder under her pillow. Downstairs John is sure that they made progress yesterday and that Marlena might even have a breakthrough today so she won’t need Alex around anymore. Alex says that he will go and pack.

Marlena overhears him and demands to know what John said to him. She threatens to leave with Alex and begs him not to go. Alex goes up to dress for the wedding. John reminds her about the night before. Marlena is angry and cold and accuses him of contradicting her and the rest of the family of threatening her. She says if Alex leaves then she is going with him. John says no she’s not...it’s her daughter’s wedding day. She tells him she doesn’t know Sami and that Alex is the only one she cares about...she wants to be with him....he’ll always protect her... John looks as if the bottom just fell out.

Outside the church: Roman & Abe

Abe tells Roman that he might have some news that will help him about Stan. Some noise from an informant about Tony. He says the ISA put out a secret government warrant and Tony’s cell is bugged. Roman can’t understand why Tony is still protecting Stan. He’s worried about Tony’s threat after his capture...that Roman had just ruined the life of someone he loves. Roman can’t help but wonder if he was talking about Sami.

Inside the church (bride’s room): Sami, Caroline, Roman

Sami receives a beautiful bouquet from Lucas. She reads the card...all my dreams will come true today when I marry you. All my love, Lucas. Sami smiles dreamily and talks about how all her dreams are coming true as well. She reads from the paper about Tony Dimera’s failed escape. Then she reads about Tony’s accomplice “Stan” still being at large. Sami is sure that she is free now. She spins around in shock as Caroline walks in and says: “Sami how could you?” They share and laugh and hug once Caroline explains that she wants to help her get ready for the wedding. Caroline tells her how happy she is for her.

Sami wishes her mom could be there and thinks it would be great if Marlena got her memory back at the wedding...then she could realize that Roman is her true love...etc...etc... Caroline tries to explain to her that it might never happen but Sami is worried about her dad living his life alone. Roman comes in and tells Sami that he has some advice...her marriage will never go wrong if she has honesty and integrity. Caroline adds how important forgiveness is and wonders if Roman could forgive Kate. Sami goes ballistic and wants her dad to be back with her mom. He tells her he doesn’t want to talk about it today...it’s her wedding day and he wants it to stick. Sami panics and wants to know why he had to say it like that. She wants to know if everyone is laughing at her. Both Roman and Caroline assure her that he was kidding.

At the penthouse Marlena tells John that if Dr. North goes so does she. John says he doesn’t want her to leave. Marlena demands that he tell Alex he can stay and that he apologise to him. John very reluctantly and insincerely does so. Alex adds to his smarmy factor and preaches that in his experience amnesia can be even harder on the family than on the patient.

Kate is moping and talking to herself when there’s a knock on her door. She opens it to Nicole and tells her she doesn’t want to talk to her because she hates her. Nicole tells Kate she hates her too but they both hate Sami more than they hate each other. Kate concedes that is true and lets her in. They talk about Lucas and Sami and Sami not coming through for Nicole. Nicole complains that Sami wouldn’t help her stop Chloe and Brady’s wedding – she could have if she would have given Chloe the love letters Brady had written her. Austin calls and tells Kate his flight was delayed. He’ll be going straight to the church when he arrives. Nicole’s ears perk up when she hears that Austin is returning. She is happy he got out of Sami’s clutches. Nicole than bemoans the circumstances – citing bad timing for her and Austin as she remembers their goodbye. She wishes she would have just chucked everything and went to New York with Austin. Kate tells her Austin is off limits. She wants to know if Nicole is trying to torture her. Sami with Lucas. You with Austin. Kate says God take me now. Kate wants to know why Nicole didn’t tell her what she had on Sami when there was time to stop the wedding. Nicole was still counting on Sami helping with Brady. Nicole asks her if she wants to know what she had on her. Kate says it’s too late. Nicole tells her anyway. Sami was Stan. Kate chokes on her drink and asks how that is possible. Nicole fills her in on how Tony provided everything. It all falls in to place for Kate now – she knows why Sami was so jumpy. Kate tells Nicole they have to go and tell Lucas. Nicole says and why would he believe either one of them. There is no proof. Kate thinks the disguise was probably in Tony’s car that blew up. Kate has a plan – to get good and drunk. She and Nicole are sharing a drink. Nicole decides to go and powder her… whatever at the prospect of seeing Austin again. There’s a knock on Kate’s door. No one there – she looks down and says what’s this?

Belle is talking to Philip who is still upstairs telling him to hurry up. They can’t be late. She promises not to faint. She doesn’t think Sami will be as understanding as Chloe and Brady were. Belle is shocked when Philip (wearing his dress blues – yes, I’m rolling my eyes) comes down the stairs without a cane. He marvels at what his new prosthesis can do. He talks about all the people that he met. He talks about the plight of the country where land mines are left mine and poor, innocent people lose limbs. They don’t have the chance to get a prosthesis – they’re lucky to find a stick to use as a cane. He wants to put on a benefit concert to raise money. She says they’ll do everything they can. He tells her that when he was injured all he could think about was having one more chance to tell her he loves her. He also talks about having lots more kids because he can do anything he could have done before he lost his leg now. He tells her he loves her very much. She says she loves him and they kiss.

Mimi is cleaning up the soda cans from the couch – she’s already to go. She yells at Shawn to hurry up. He tells her he slept through his alarm. He wants to know how late they were up watching TV. Mimi has a flashback to them watching Jurassic Park. Shawn reaches for his soda and the channel changes to a porn flick. Their expressions are hilarious as they try and figure out just how the heck those on screen are doing what they’re doing. They stop and watch for a second and then start looking for the remote. By the time they flip the channel the movie is over. Mimi tells Shawn that it’s on in 30 minutes again. They can watch it. She’s not sleepy. He gives her a quick peck on the cheek and tells her she’s the best friend a guy could have. He comes out – he tells her she looks hot. She returns the sentiment. He asks her if she can help him with his tie. She does. They leave their apartment the same time Phil and Belle do. Mimi is amazed to see Phil walking. Phil says they should go to the church together. Mimi says we’ll take my car, it’s fixed now – Shawn can drive. Shawn pulls out her keys. They get to the church. Belle tells Philip that she is going to find Sami. Phil goes to find Lucas. Shawn comes inside the church. Belle tells him he looks great, more like a groom than an usher. He tells her that he better start seating the guests. Mimi confronts Belle and tells her to give it up. Belle pulls the innocent act. Mimi tells her that everything says and does is calculated to keep Shawn at her side. Belle tries to tell Mimi that she doesn’t do it consciously – Mimi tells her she has a problem and she should see someone about it.

Lots going on at the church. In the bride’s room Sami is still urging Roman to go after Marlena. Thankfully Caroline tells her enough – she should be focusing on her wedding. Caroline says you we haven’t even started on your hair and makeup. That’s Roman’s cue to leave. He runs in to Lucas and Will who have arrived. Will surmises they arrived early to ensure that Sami didn’t do something to screw up this wedding. Roman tells Lucas he hasn’t been very easy on him. Lucas says he deserved it. Roman tells him that he thinks he’s the best thing that ever happened to Sami. He made her straighten up and become a better person, something that he as her father could never do. He thanks Lucas and they hug. Sami is being the typical nervous bride worrying about everything that could go wrong. Caroline is very patient with her. I love how Caroline uses humour to try and calm Sami down. Sami asks her grandmother to pass her the mirror. She drops it and it shatters. Sami is immediately a basket case. She is going to have seven years bad luck starting now. Caroline tells her that is superstition. People make their own luck. When Marlena arrives at the church Roman asks her if she would walk Sami down the aisle. She looks to Alex and he nods yes. John tells her that she can make decisions on her own – she doesn’t need to turn to Alex. She tells John that she wants Alex’s advice.

Roman and Marlena go to the bride’s room. Sami is very happy that Marlena is there. She says you remember that you love Daddy. Marlena says no. She does know the baby she lost was his. She asks Roman how he feels about that. He tells her that he wants her to know it was conceived in love. She makes a reference to Kate – describing her as a friend. Sami starts a tirade but both Roman and Caroline stop her. Belle shows up. Caroline gives her a garter – something new and blue. Belle gives her Marlena’s pearls – something old and borrowed. Sami asks Marlena to put the pearls on. Meanwhile John is confronting Alex. He doesn’t do know how he did it but John knows that Alex got to Marlena last night. Alex makes fun of John by saying he used his alien powers to turn invisible. All John knows is that last night she wanted to be with him, she was close to remembering and today she’s like a zombie. Alex goes on the attack saying he wants what is best for his patient. He wants her to remember what she was feeling before the accident all John wants her to remember is that she is in love with him. John has a feeling that Alex has an agenda – not to help Marlena remember him, Roman or anyone – but that he wants her for himself. Alex basically tells John he is delusional and he should see someone.

The wedding starts. Shawn and Mimi sit behind John – very cute how he puts his arm around her as soon as he slides into his seat. Belle arrives and is all smiles for Philip. Sami comes down the aisle with Roman and Marlena. A bit of confusion as both Roman and John expect Marlena to sit with them but she goes to sit with Alex. The priest asks if anyone has any reason why these two can’t be wed. Everyone looks at everyone else – LOL! Lucas gets to say I do. The show ends just as its Sami’s turn. (Austin lands late so he’s not there yet).

Preview: Sami and Lucas at the altar – Sami is just about to say I do when Roman, with Bo, Hope & Tek, yells outs this wedding has to stop. Billie, finding Patrick and Chelsea in a heated kiss – What’s going on here? What the hell are you two doing? Shawn to Mimi (in Caroline’s bridal gown) – You look beautiful. Mimi smiles – Belle does a slow burn. Lexie catching Alex hypnotising Marlena – What are you doing to her?

Pat’s Spoilers

This will be a very short report tonight because I’m running very late.

Roman asks Tek what was so important that he dragged him out of church just while Sami was about to say her vows. Bo and Hope follow them out concerned. Tek tells them that they have received numerous reports from the ISA that an international terrorist was seen in Salem. The last report was that he was seen in the vicinity of St. Luke’s Church. Roman immediately ties it to Tony. With the Brady and Horton extended family at the wedding plus three police commanders what better place for Tony to get his revenge. Just as Sami is about to say I Do Roman et al burst into the church and Roman orders that the wedding be stopped. Sami goes ballistic. She is furious with Roman and doesn’t give him a chance to explain. She tells him she will never forgive him for ruining her wedding day. Roman tells everyone about the attack and not to panic. They have everything under control. Sami launches into Roman again. She can’t believe he stopped the wedding for this. The ceremony was almost done. All she has to do is say I Do and for the priest to pronounce them man and wife. She tells Father Jansen to finish the service. He says he can’t – he has to go by what the police want besides he can’t endanger any of his parishioners.

John suggests that Marlena go and talk to Sami. He says he knows she doesn’t remember Sami but Sami remembers her. Marlena goes to comfort Sami and she gets her to calm down a bit. Sami just wanted her day to be perfect. John asks Roman if he can do anything to help. Roman tells him to check out the rec room and make sure it’s secure and then they’ll move everyone down there. John does his check and Roman announces that he wants everyone to remain calm and go downstairs. Shawn is panicked because he doesn’t know where Mimi is. LOL! I loved his reaction. Shawn tells John that they can’t go until they find Mimi. John assures him that they will find her. Belle tells them she left her purse in the bride’s room. Phil offers to come with her but she tells him she will catch up to him.

Chelsea and Billie – I really don’t like Chelsea so I’m not saying much about it. I hated the Chelsea/Patrick fantasy. I didn’t mind the talk between Chelsea and Billie. I don’t know if Chelsea was playing Billie when she gave her the sob story about how the dress she was wearing made her feel. She brought up being poor and what it felt like having to borrow clothes from Abby or going to the thrift store to buy them. Absolutely hated the way Chelsea talked to Sami although Sami did start it by taking one look at Chelsea’s dress and saying she didn’t invite any streetwalkers to her wedding. In a war of nastiness with Sami Chelsea didn’t come out on the winning end. She runs out and Billie tries to stop her telling her the church is in lock down mode. She runs, Patrick and Billie run after her. Chelsea goes charging towards the exit and Bo points his gun at her. She runs outside … Patrick goes after her. Bo wants to stop Patrick but Billie says to let him go. He’s the only one Chelsea listens to. Patrick tries to get Chelsea to talk to him but she walks off.

When Marlena enters the rec room she gets unnerved by the large amount of people down there. Alex ushers her into a different part of the church. Marlena is not sure they should be there. I loved how she felt she should be there for her family because they might need her. She thinks she can give them good advice. Alex tries to make her believe that her family isn’t concerned about her only about themselves. I didn’t like the way he talked about them. Marlena thinks that without the history she can see things very clearly and she cites Belle’s attachment to a man who isn’t her husband as being very bad for her as an example. Alex explains that she’ll never remember her past if her mind is clouded with the present which is why he took her to the cabin to isolate her from all this. Marlena tells him that John won’t let him take her back there. What will they do? Alex says the first thing he will do is get rid of all the damage that was done by bringing her to Salem and he pulls out the necklace and hypnotises her. Lexie sees what he is doing and comes in. She is not pleased. She knows that the type of hypnotherapy he is using is a very strong form of mind control. Alex tries to tell her that for amnesia patients it’s a great way to get them to remember. Lexie isn’t buying it so she insists that he gets John’s permission. Alex tells her that she will say nothing but good things about him and she will not tell John or he’ll tell her husband that she is having an affair with Detective Kramer.

All during the entire time the church is in lockdown and Roman, Bo, Hope and Tek are running around the church with guns drawn … someone in a hooded sweatshirt and black leather gloves is skulking through the entire church carrying an envelope addressed to Sami.

I’m so late that I won’t go into a lot of detail about the scenes in the bride’s room. These are scenes you need to watch for yourselves. There’s no way to describe the look on Shawn’s face and in his eyes when he sees Mimi in his grandmother’s wedding gown. It made my heart melt…sigh. It starts with Mimi entering the bride’s room. Two weddings in two days are just too much for her. Caroline comes in and asks her what is wrong. Mimi talks about how she messed up things with Rex. She thought they would spend the rest of their lives together. Caroline tells her she’ll fall in love again. Mimi doesn’t think so. Caroline tells her she’s beautiful, smart and fun to be with – she will find love again. Mimi thinks that Rex may come back to her if she just waits long enough. Caroline tells her not to put her life on hold because it may never happen. She then says that now that Shawn is free maybe the two of them will … Mimi tells her they are just good friends. Caroline tells her that is how she and Shawn were at the start and that good friends make for the best couples. Caroline offers to make a hope chest for Mimi when she gets married. Mimi is very touched and says you would do that for me. Caroline says of course. Mimi and Shawn have been friends for practically all of their lives. She thinks of her as a granddaughter.

They’re just talking about Sami’s bad luck with weddings when Belle enters and says it hasn’t gotten any better. They find out about the terrorist attack. They’re pretty worried and when Tek barges in they jump. He tells them to stay put and not let anyone in unless it’s the police. Belle sees the gown and talks about putting it on the day of Theo’s christening. Caroline talks about catching them in the room, her with the gown on and Shawn with his grandfather’s tux on. Belle says that was a long time ago. Mimi holds the dress and says they don’t make lace like this any more. Caroline urges her to try the dress on. Mimi is reluctant but Caroline tells her it will take their mind off the terrorist. No comment on Belle’s look. Mimi comes out and Caroline says it’s as if the dress was made for her. There’s a knock on the door. It’s Philip. (Loved the scene with Philip and Shawn prior to this when they find out that Belle and Mimi are in the bride’s room. Shawn doesn’t know if he likes the idea of the two of them being left together. Philip doesn’t either. Shawn says what are we going to do about it – and off they go…LOL). Belle goes to unlock the door. Philip comes in and Shawn comes in and closes the door behind him. He turns around and sees Mimi and his face breaks out into a big smile. He tells Mimi she looks beautiful. He continues staring at her and qualifies his statement. He says the dress is beautiful and you are beautiful. Philip also says she looks beautiful. Mimi smiles. There’s a knock on the door that the wedding is back on. Mimi says she better change. Sami wouldn’t want to see someone else wearing a wedding dress. Shawn says he’ll wait for her. Belle decides that she and Philip can wait as well. Caroline tells her that Sami would want her attendants at the altar. They leave. Caroline talks about Mimi to Shawn – about how beautiful the gown was on her. Shawn agrees. Caroline says she thinks that Mimi will be wearing that gown one day – Shawn just beams – a huge smile. (Earlier Caroline told Mimi that Shawn always hoped that his bride would wear her dress).

The wedding resumes. Lucas says I do again. It’s Sami’s turn. The door opens and ‘Stan’ walks in and pushes back his hood and says Hello Sami. Did you miss me?

Preview: Roman holding ‘Stan’ to Lucas – Are you sure this is the guy. Lucas – Yeah I’m positive. I’d know him anywhere. ‘Stan’ – Probably as well as you’d know your own bride. Isn’t that right Samantha? John to Alex – You’re going to tell me why you are hypnotising my wife and you’re going to tell me right now. Shawn to Mimi – I have to move on with life. Mimi – So what do you say we move on together? Billie (to herself) – Don’t let her be in any trouble. John to Abe – Stan’s here. Abe – DiMera’s Stan? ‘Stan’ – The only one who’s getting what’s coming to them is Sami.

Pat’s Spoilers

Here it is in a nutshell.

Chelsea (yawn) – She goes to the Java Café mumbling to herself. She’s upset because Patrick isn’t hanging on to her every word. She thought he would follow her which is the only reason she left the wedding. Josh likes the way she looks. Max shows up. She cries on his shoulder telling him how Sami called her a whore. She proceeds to insult Sami and in the process lets it slip that Sami is mad at her because Grandma Kate gave her Sami’s old job at Basic Black. Max thinks they should go out and celebrate. He’ll go home and shower and change and then they can go out on the town. Chelsea at first says no but then she sees Patrick outside and tells Max she changed her mind. She kisses him. He tells her she just went from first base to fifth. She kisses him again and suggests that they go to the beach and pick up where they left off. Max just wants to go out on a date and get to know each other. She tells him to forget it and walks away from him and goes to Patrick. She starts playing with his tie. She thinks it’s so sweet that he left the wedding to come and look for her. Billie phones again – the only Patrick and Billie scenes are those where he tells her he will go and look for Chelsea and the check-in phone calls. Patrick lets Billie talk to Chelsea. Chelsea says she will let Billie know if she decides to come to the reception. She then tells Patrick she wants to renegotiate the terms of their one dance agreement. She’ll be nice to Billie if Patrick takes her on a real date.

Alex repeats his threat to Lexie. She wants to know how he found out about her and Tek. We see him remembering seeing the two of them in the exam room. Lexie tells him that she won’t let him hurt Marlena. He tries to convince Lexie she doesn’t know what she is talking about but Lexie is not buying it. He asks her if she’d like her husband to find out what she is up to. Abe is in the doorway and asks Lexie what she did now. She tells him that Dr. North was going to tell him that she was moonlighting at the wedding. She was consulting with him about Marlena. She tells Abe that she is in the room. Abe asks Marlena if she is alright. Marlena doesn’t respond. Alex says she is under hypnosis the stress of the past few days has been too much for her. Abe wants to know if she will be alright. Alex says she will be once he finishes her therapy session. Lexie asks Abe to give her a few minutes with Dr. North. Lexie tells Alex he can threaten her all he wants but she won’t let him hurt Marlena. Marlena chants – Alex will always protect me. Alex will help me. I need him. Lexie says it sounds like she has been brainwashed. Alex maintains he is doing what is best for his patient and warns Lexie to stay out of his way.

John runs into Abe in his search for Marlena. Abe tells John where Marlena is and John tells him that Stan is here and helps Abe back inside. John then runs into Lexie and asks her what Alex is doing to Marlena. Alex is continuing his session with Marlena. He calls her his beautiful sweet Marlena. He knew bringing her back to Salem was a mistake so he needs to strengthen the bond they share. He tells her that from now on she is not to be concerned with her husband or children. They only want to hurt her. He is the only one who can help her. Marlena understands. He then tells her that when he counts to three she will come to feeling refreshed. She will not remember their conversation or the interruptions. In the meantime after Lexie has a flashback to Alex threatening her 20 minutes ago she tells John that Marlena is upset and Alex was trying to calm her using hypnosis. John says he didn’t consent to that. Lexie tells him that he should put a stop to it then. He charges into the room and wants to know what is going on – he didn’t give him permission to hypnotise Marlena. When Marlena defends Alex John tries to tell her that it’s time to make a change. Marlena makes it very clear that Alex is her doctor and she is not going to give him up. Alex is very smug and ask John if he’s satisfied and then leaves the room behind Marlena. John isn’t – he knows something is going on and he’s determined to find out what.

Again with the repeat of Lucas’ I Do’s – what’s that – the third time now? Stan makes his entrance shocking the entire congregation. John, Lucas and Philip all have flashbacks to encounters with Stan. Sami flashback to the transformation from Sami to Stan. Stan asks Sami if she is happy to see him. Lucas lunges toward him but Tek holds back telling him he doesn’t need to be arrested on his wedding day. Lucas says that’s Stan, Tony’s right hand man. Roman asks him if he is sure. Lucas says he would know him anywhere. Stan says as well as you would know your own bride, isn’t that right Samantha? Sami faints. When she comes to she wonders what is going on. When she finds out Stan showed up she says it’s true, he is here. Stan says he couldn’t miss Sami’s big day. Sami wants Stan out of there. Roman can’t believe he’d show up – he’s a wanted man. Stan says he has a score to settle. Sami wants her dad to arrest Stan – calls him crazy and evil. Of course Stan can’t let that slide asking Sami how she can have the nerve to call him evil. Stan says he’s not going anywhere – the only that is going to them is Sami.

Stan admits to working with Tony and causing more pain and suffering to the people in this town than some of them can even imagine. He’s every bit the monster Tony is and no punishment would ever be too great. Roman is going to haul him off to jail. He had previously listed off a whole list of charges against Stan. He says I admit that Stan is guilty but I’m not Stan. The contraption comes out of the mouth. Then the black leather glove comes off revealing Kate’s hand. She removes the moustache and asks Sami if this looks familiar. Then she removes the wig and mask. Lucas says Mom, Sami says Kate. Roman says he knew she wanted to stop the wedding but why is she dressed like Stan. Kate asks Sami if she wants to tell him or should she? Freeze frame on Sami’s shocked and guilty face.

Mimi is having trouble getting the dress off. Shawn tells her they’ll be lucky if they miss the ceremony. She knows he’s wishing he was marrying Belle just like she’s wishing she was marrying Rex. Shawn tries to get the dress unzipped. Mimi tells him she is more depressed then ever. It’s not just the wedding. She also talks about how she screwed up her chance of a happy life with Rex. She talks about just seeing families walking with their child and she thinks that could have been her and Rex. That’s all she ever wanted. A normal family. Shawn asks her what family she knows that is normal. She feels her and Rex could have been. Now she’s stuck with nothing. Shawn doesn’t think so. Mimi says she has a waitressing job, a class load she can barely handle and bills she can’t pay if you want to call that something. Shawn says at least you have me. Mimi is thankful she has him. He has been such a help just by being there for her. He says ditto. He can’t get the zipper unstuck so he says they should look for a candle or something – maybe wax would help. Mimi says that would work – she saw it on Martha Stewart. They can’t find any candles in the bride’s room so Shawn suggests they have some champagne. Lucas doesn’t drink and Sami won’t be toasting herself. Shawn pops the cork and pours them each a glass. Mimi suggests they toast the bride and groom. Shawn would rather toast something that will last forever – he suggests a toast to their friendship.

Mimi asks him if he has thought about life without Belle. She still loves Rex but she knows he’s not coming back and she’s accepted that. Shawn says he has accepted that Belle isn’t coming back to him even though – he stops but Mimi urges to continue – he says even though she still loves me. He tells Mimi that she told him that but that doesn’t change anything. Part of him still wants to be with her no matter what but the other part knows that can’t be. He says he has to move on. Mimi suggests that they move on together. Mimi explains that she meant they live together, they’re going through the same thing – they need to do go out and have fun. She doesn’t know if she remembers how to smile or laugh. Shawn says he’ll have to remind her and starts tickling her. We here a ripping sound. Mimi hopes the dress isn’t damaged. Shawn says the good news is that the zipper works now. She goes to change. She tells him this is further proof she was never meant to be a bride. He tells her one day she will make a very beautiful bride. She smiles at him. She says maybe they can catch the end of the wedding. Shawn doesn’t know why she’d want to the wedding – he thought they were going to have fun. She says if the most cursed bride in Salem can get her man there’s still hope for me. (LOL – little does she know that Sami is going to lose her groom AGAIN).

Preview: Kate – You Sami Brady are Stan. Alex to Marlena – The two men you loved may now very well be in love with Kate. Frankie to Jen – If I had kept in touch you and I would have had a family of our own. Jack – It’s time for you to die Jack old boy. Belle to Lexie – They’re stronger than the last time. Please tell me I’m not losing this baby.

Pat’s Spoilers

Jack is not feeling well and Jen refuses to go to the wedding. She goes to make Jack some tea. Frankie knows this is not just a flu bug. Jack reminds him of the promise he made and Jack is going to hold him to it. Jen asks Frankie to go and get a heating pad. It’s in the garage in a box. Jen phones Lexie and asks her to come and see Jack. Jack catches her on the phone and says I hope you didn’t call who I think you did. Lexie comes to the house and asks Jen for some tea. This gives Lexie the opportunity to talk to Jack alone. Lexie tells Jack the dizziness and the periods of feeling week are only going to get worse. She urges him to tell Jen. He refuses. She gives him a prescription that will help a little but not for long. She persists in her efforts to get him to talk to Jen. Jack has a plan. He’s going to disappear. Lexie thinks he’s talking suicide. Jack says no, he wouldn’t do that. If he did Jen would kill him. He is going to disappear and he will find a way to let his family know that he died a quick and painless death so they won’t worry. Lexie says as opposed to worrying when you disappear. Lexie gets a call and has to leave. Jen comes back to find out what was wrong. Jack says it’s just the flu. She goes to make the tea.

Jen realises it’s taking Frankie a long time to find the heating pad. She then recalls that it’s in the same box as a letter she had written to him a few months after he left for Columbia. She hopes he hasn’t read the letter. She rushes out to the garage but she’s too late. I’m not going into any depth talking about these scenes just to say that Billie Warlock is riveting. For anyone watching the show tomorrow you are in for a real treat. The gist of the letter and the conversation is based on the fact that Jen wrote him and told him she knew the difference between a school girl crush and the real thing and he was the real thing. She was preparing to come to New York. He wants to know why she didn’t mail it. She tells him she hadn’t heard from him either. He tells her that he missed her. If only he had written it would have been them that were raising a family together. She takes the letter from him and tells him to forget what he read. He tells her he can’t. She says we can never have a future together – I love Jack. He has a flashback to Jack asking him to marry Jen after he dies. There is also talk about Jennifer feeling destined to be with Jack and Frankie agreeing that he is a great guy. Very good segments.

Marlena scared me again today … LOL! She gets very anxious inside where Kate is holding court. They go out of the sacristy. Marlena can’t understand why the dark haired woman is trying to stop the wedding. Alex tells her it’s normal to feel that way when her daughter is so upset. She tells him she isn’t upset about her at all. She doesn’t know her. She wants to leave. Alex is about to take her out of the church when John asks her where she is going. She tells him she is going to leave. John tries to get her to stay. He tells her that this is her family, her daughter. Marlena says she doesn’t feel like my daughter. She is leaving. He says if you want to go fine but you’re not going with him. Marlena very coldly tells John that Alex is her psychiatrist. She trusts him and needs him. She tells John goodbye. Alex takes Marlena to another room and tells her what he thinks the problem is. The condensed version. Marlena is upset that the two men she loves are not both in love with Kate. He also thinks that is why she may have amnesia. He says that Roman is divorcing Kate but he still loves her. John and Kate were engaged and living together while her and Roman were being held by the DiMera’s. Tony made her well aware of the living arrangements which probably led her to seek comfort in Roman’s arms. He also thinks that being the type of woman she is – a woman that developed a dependency on both men it must be difficult to face that they both love another woman. It all makes sense to Marlena. She wants to leave. Alex says he’ll take her home. She doesn’t want to go back to John’s place. Alex suggests the cabin. As they are walking out the church Mimi stops Marlena and asks her to check on Belle because she isn’t feeling well. Marlena does. Belle is in pain. Marlena tells Alex she can’t leave now and phones Lexie.

Belle isn’t feeling well. She tells Philip she can’t believe what Kate is doing. Shawn notices that Belle doesn’t feel well. Mimi suggests that he let Philip take care of her. Billie asks Kate what she is trying to do. Kate says she is stopping the wedding. Billie asks her how she thinks Austin will feel when he returns to find his family imploding. Austin is on the plane drinking a toast to Sami and Lucas hoping that nothing goes wrong for Sami at this wedding. After Kate accuses Sami of being Stan Roman and Lucas both say that’s impossible. Kate says she has proof. There’s a bit of laugh when she says she doesn’t know where it came from – it arrived in a pizza box. She opens the envelope with all the pictures of Sami’s transformation into Stan. They are passed around for everyone to look at. Belle refuses to believe that Sami would do this. Philip is not so sure. Stan knew a lot about them. He also states that if it wasn’t for Stan he would have escaped earlier and not ended up on that landmine. It would be her fault he lost his leg. Philip asks her if she is alright. She says she just needs so air. He’s going to come with her but she tells him to stay and be with his mom. Shawn sees her leaving and takes off after her. Mimi follows. Belle tells Shawn and Belle that she just needs to get off her feet for awhile. She’ll be fine. She goes into the bride’s room. Shawn is tempted to go inside. Mimi tells him he can’t be Belle’s protector any more, that’s Phil’s job. She understands that it must hurt him that she is married and pregnant with Phil’s child. She feels that it would just increase Belle’s stress which is the reason for her cramps if he continued to be the protector. It would be different if Philip is away but he isn’t. Marlena comes along. Once Marlena is with Belle Shawn feels better. Mimi says let’s get out of here and they leave.

Sami denies being Stan. She says pictures can be doctored. She asks everyone if they believe her. Kate tells her to prove it. She picks up a bible and tells Sami to go up on the altar and raise her right hand and swear on the bible if front of God and everyone that she wasn’t Stan. Sami says she doesn’t have to no one believes her. Caroline says she believes her. Will and Roman stand by her. Sami asks Lucas – what about you. She asks him not to let his mother destroy their wedding. She says will you marry me. Lucas says yes. Kate says she anticipated this head in the sand so she brought more evidence. She pulls out a folder. It’s from an ISA crime lab and they confirm that the DNA found on Stan’s disguise belongs to Sami. The report also states that the DNA couldn’t have been there unless Sami was wearing the clothes. Everyone stares – freeze frame on Sami.

Preview: Lexie to Alex – I know what you’re trying to do to Marlena. You want her for yourself. Alex – The way you want Detective Kramer for yourself. Shawn to Mimi – She’s having his baby. They need to be together. Belle to Philip – Oh my god. Philip – What, what? Belle – The baby’s coming. Sami crying – I hate everyone and I know you all hate me. Austin (standing behind her) – I don’t.

I honestly don’t know where to start on this. I enjoyed the majority of the show – this one is ‘must see TV’. The scenes in the bride’s room were boring so I’ll start there. Belle is in pain. Marlena calms down and has a memory of giving birth. Lexie tells Caroline to get towels and water. Belle screams Shawn’s name. Excuse me – but your husband’s name is Philip. Caroline says she is still in love with Shawn. Outside the room Alex is worried that Marlena may start remembering – if she does he’s going to have to put a stop to that. Inside Marlena has the same memory again. Lexie examines Belle. She says someone should tell Philip he’s going to become a father today. Marlena goes to get him.

The Shawn and Mimi scenes were so cute and so much fun. How come I don’t look that good in a bowling shirt? I love their banter! She tells him she bought the shirts but the matching bowling shoes were 80 bucks a pair. Shawn repeats that – he’s surprised. He tells her they should just walk out with the rentals. Mimi says that’s shoplifting. Shawn says I’ve been in jail – Mimi says she has to. They laugh about being Bonnie and Clyde – but they say – What kind of an example would that be? She asks him if he thinks Sami really was Stan. He doesn’t know. Sami has made a lot of mistakes. Mimi knows that – but being Stan. Shawn says he and Belle made a lot of mistakes. Mistakes they wish they could have taken back but they can’t so you just move on. Loved the comment when Mimi was teasing him after she got two strikes in a row – he tells her that he loves her wild side. Patrick and Chelsea come over to say hi. Well Patrick says hi to Mimi but Chelsea ignores them. When they walk away Shawn tells Mimi to tell Patrick to stay away from Chelsea because she’s trouble.

Shawn phones Caroline to find out if it’s (the wedding) is over. Caroline misunderstands and says that Belle is still in labour. Shawn says he’ll be right there. Mimi says – reality check. This isn’t your baby. Shawn just wants to be there for her. Marlena and Caroline go to talk to Philip. Marlena tells Philip that Belle has been calling out. Shawn hears this. Marlena tells Caroline that there is no way you can tell a man that his wife was calling out for someone else when she’s about to give birth to his child. She tells Caroline not to say anything to Shawn. Mimi tells Shawn – you knew this would happen. He knows she is right but he kept pretending it wasn’t going to happen. She’s having his baby and they need to be together. Phil tends to his wife. Marlena tells Alex that she was remembering – not clearly. He tells her that he can help her – he hypnotises her. Lexie tells him that she knows that he wants Marlena for himself. He throws Tek in her face. Lexie won’t back down – she tells him she is going to tell John. Abe and Lexie talk. He tells her that after everything that happened at the wedding he wants to make things right. He was wrong to push her away He wants to try again. She is very happy. Of course Alex sees this and tells her that if she wants to stay happy with Abe she can’t say anything to John. Shawn watches Belle and Philip together. He asks Caroline if Belle will be alright. She says yes. Shawn says he hopes that they will be happy. Every baby deserves a happy home. Caroline and Shawn hug. She says she is so proud of him. He says I love you Grandma! (It’s so long since we heard him say that). As he’s leaving he reaches for Mimi’s hand and takes it in his.

Patrick makes it clear that the only reason he brought Chelsea bowling was because of the agreement they made. He takes her out and she is supposed to call Billie and include her. When Billie calls Chelsea pretends she can’t hear her and hangs up. Patrick tells her to call her back – it was the deal they made. She says he was supposed to take her out to have some fun to relieve her stress and right now Billie is the main cause of her stress. Patrick suggests that they go out together – her with a guy her age and him and Billie. She plays him and says she’ll bring Max. He reacts exactly how she expected him to. He says no you can do better than that. She agrees. She’ll wait for the man of her dreams.

Loved seeing Austin today. As for Kathy Griffin … I thought the dialogue was good. I’m not going into detail. There were a lot of witty inside jokes giving Days the opportunity to poke fun of themselves. My favourite one was when the cabbie said she was a big fan of soaps. She tells Austin you got to really watch the flashbacks so you don’t miss out on anything. (Austin had just had a flashback – LOL). I liked how they had Austin kind of go his and Sami’s history through dialogue and lots of flashbacks.

The church scenes. I am not even going to attempt to write this up. This is one episode you want to tape and you definitely want to watch these scenes. Bryan and Ali were phenomenal. Everyone from Chris, Josh, Drake, and Lauren put in stellar performances. I was furious at Philip for blaming Sami for the fact that he lost his leg. Sami stays in denial mode. John gets a call confirming the findings. Sami keeps denying saying that both John and Kate hate her. Roman is great when he grabs her and tells her to just tell the truth. When he had to admit that Sami was Stan – Tony’s right hand man, Roman was just crushed. Sami finally admits that she was Stan and that she worked for Tony. She tells them she didn’t know it was Tony until it was too late. Once she was caught in his web she couldn’t get out. She also says that Tony gave her proof that both Roman and Marlena were still alive. She had to do what he asked. The scenes where Sami lashes out at Kate are just amazing. Sami also learns that she is going to be arrested and that she will be punished to the fullest extent of the law. She pleads with Roman not to do this but he tells her it’s out of his hands. She runs out of the church. Kate tells Lucas she’s sorry she didn’t get the proof earlier so he didn’t have to anticipate the wedding. Lucas lashes out at her. He tells her he can’t forgive Sami for what she did but what Kate did was worse. She tells him she did it for him. He screams at her that she did it for revenge. She is worse than Sami. He tells her that he never wants to see her again. Caroline talks to Roman and says that Kate was right about Sami being Stan. Roman says yes she was but he agrees with Lucas – what Kate did was far worse than what Sami did. Both Lucas and Roman blame Kate for pushing Sami over the edge. Billie asks Kate if it was worth it. Kate says yes it was because she finally got Sami out of her son’s lives, both Lucas’ and Austin’s. Outside Sami is crying and someone waves a handkerchief over her shoulder. She says go away. I hate everyone and I know you all hate me. Austin says I don’t. Sami turns around looking shocked. Freeze frame…

Preview: Philip hanging on to Marlena (John in the background) yelling –She’s going into labour right now. She’s going to lose the baby. Marlena – I don’t know … Philip – Do something. Shawn to Dr. North – Why would I listen to you? Dr. North – Because I’ve been in your shoes. I lost the woman I love. I know what it’s like. Austin to Sami – I’m sorry Sami but the truth is you only have yourself to blame. Bonnie to Nicole – You’re planning on making a move on Austin Reed, aren’t you?

Chez Rouge: Bonnie is sampling the food when she sees Mickey at a table. She joins him. He asks how she’s doing. She says good considering … she changes the subject. She says I guess there will be no wedding reception today what will Sami’s wedding imploding. She tells him it reminds her of the time she walked in here all gussied up thinking she was … Mickey stops her. She says it’s all water under the bridge. He mentions the credit card charges. She says more water under the bridge. She talks about the fact that they didn’t take any reservations for tonight because of the wedding reception – with that not taking place tonight she offers to take the food off their hands. Mickey tells her to talk to Maggie. She says she can’t and asks Mickey if he will. He says he’ll see what he can do. Bonnie notices Nicole and goes to talk to her. Maggie asks Mickey what the two bit home wrecker wanted.

Bonnie asks Nicole what she is doing there. Nicole points out the obvious – she’s drinking a martini. Bonnie asks her why here when they’re ten bucks a pop and you’re broke. Nicole tells her that she is crashing Sami’s wedding reception to talk to Austin. Bonnie says she hates to tell her but Sami’s wedding crashed at the altar and she’s probably crying on Austin’s shoulder right now. Bonnie tells Nicole what happened. (I won’t repeat it – we all know what happened). Nicole laughs so hard she almost chokes. Nicole is pleased. Kate got her revenge and she didn’t even have to … Bonnie says ‘do what?” She saw that Nicole and Sami were thick as thieves. Nicole says they were never tight. She broke Austin’s heart in Vegas – if the timing had been right she could have had Austin. She bemoans the fact that she always lets the good ones get away. Bonnie glances in Mickey’s direction and commiserates with Nicole. She tells her that she is determined to marry off her kids to rich spouses. Mimi enters and says are you trying to mess with our lives again. She tells Bonnie that she is no better than Kate. She wants to know why she called her to come here. Bonnie wishes she had brought Shawn – she could use some muscle. Mimi asks her for what. Bonnie says to move the food. Mimi says you can’t just take the food. Bonnie informs her that Mickey said she could have all that she wants. Maggie says over my dead body and the fight begins. At least they don’t show it. I did get a chuckle out of Nicole’s expressions as she watched it – she’s hilarious!

The fight is broken up and Maggie yells that she wants Bonnie out of her restaurant. Bonnie says part of the food was for the battered women’s shelter. Maggie says and where was the rest going – into your chili. She says just take and get out. Bonnie makes a call to the shelter. She finds out their walk in fridge is not working. She says the least she can do is bring them enough food for a hot meal to feed everyone tonight – she’ll take the rest to the middle school for their bake sale – NOT. She’s quite happy with herself. She sneaks up on Nicole who is doodling Austin’s name on a napkin. She says she knew that Nicole was planning to make a move on Austin.

Sami and Austin: I absolutely loved their conversion. There is too much dialogue to go in to detail. It’s so great that Austin is willing to listen to her. She swears she didn’t know she was working for Tony. She tells him the story about Stan. He listens but tells her she’s in the position she is because of the choices she made. Now she has to live with the consequences forever. He tells her instead of learning from her mistakes she builds on them. He reminds her of their almost wedding in Vegas. Sami tells him she doesn’t need to be reminded of that. He tells her that it’s pretty much a miracle that he’s standing here talking to her and that she and Lucas were at the altar about to get married – he wants to know if they can forgive and forget why can’t she. She says she won’t forgive Kate. Sami admits to making a mistake but she says it was Kate’s fault. Austin can’t believe she’s blaming his mother. She tells him how Kate set up her and Brandon, drugged them, put them naked in a bed together and made sure Lucas found them. Austin is even more surprised when Sami tells him that Kate admitted it all but it was too late by then. She tells him the story of the make-up artist transforming her appearance so she looked like a man. She tells him everything that happened in the war zone. Austin is finding this all pretty unbelievable – LOL. She tells him how she saved the guys lives but none of them give her credit for that – they just blame her for what she did as Stan. Austin says that she has outdone herself. She will never top this. Sami hopes not. She wishes she could take it all back. She didn’t mean for it to happen. Austin tells her that she never does. He tells her that she has to start taking responsibility because the truth is she only has herself to blame. Sami tells him she’ll probably spend the rest of her life in jail. She thanks him for being there for her and being so nice to her. She doesn’t know what she would have done without him. He tells her that he’ll always be there for her. They hug.

The church: Lexie confronts Dr. North. She tells him that the therapy he is using is old and outdated and dangerous. He tells her that he is doing what is best to help his patient regain her memory. He tells her that if makes one complaint to John about the therapy he is using he’ll have to tell about the therapy she used to assuage her loneliness, it’s called adultery. Lexie threatens to bring him up on charges. He tells her that he will make sure she loses her son. He tells her to keep quiet. John comes along and tells Lexie that Belle is in labour and needs her. Lexie goes out to the car to get her medical supplies. John tells Alex that once Belle has her baby Marlena will get her memory back. As he leaves Alex thinks to himself that John could be right.

Shawn lights a candle and kneels down to pray. He says he doesn’t know why things turn out the way they do and he probably never will. He says Belle is in a lot of pain and he asks God to keep her … he pauses and changes it to ‘them’ safe. She deserves to be happy. He ends his prayer. Mimi comes up and says it’s hard to know what to pray for. Are you praying for Belle and her family or for a miracle for you and her? Shawn tells Mimi that he just wants Belle and her baby to b happy. That means that Philip and Belle will be together forever. He tells her that family is sacred to her. He could never break up a family. He mentions what is has done to Will. He talks about when he was young and he and his Dad had to learn to get along without Hope. They got a miracle. He says now I have a half-sister and he can see how much it hurts his mother because his Dad has to spend time with Billie and their child. He says and Mom has to deal with the step-daughter from hell. Mimi tells him that her mother called and she’ll meet him at the apartment. As Mimi is leaving she tells him to steer clear of Belle.

Once Mimi leaves Dr. North has some advice for Shawn. I found this very intriguing because Alex’s flashbacks were of Roman and Marlena when he left her after they found out that Belle was John’s daughter. Shawn questions why he should listen to him and Alex tells him that he has been in his shoes. He lost the woman he loves so he knows what it is like. He tells Shawn he knows how painful it is to walk away from the woman you love but sometimes you just have to let go and move on. Sometimes you don’t have a choice. He wishes someone would have given him that advice. Shawn asks him if he would have listened. Alex is honest – he says I doubt it. Shawn thanks him for trying. Alex says one more thing – it makes you hurt like hell and do things you would never do. Shawn says he’s going to make sure Belle is okay. As he walks away Alex says ‘You’ll never give up on Belle just like I’ll never give up on Marlena.”

Belle, Philip, John, Marlena and Lexie – Philip is trying to get Belle to relax but she’s not in the mood to listen. Outside the bride’s room John is telling Marlena she can’t leave. He says Sami is devastated – she needs her mother. Marlena begins to protest but they hear Belle scream. They rush in the room – Philip begs her to do something – Belle is in labour. Marlena is flustered and doesn’t think she can help. John encourages her. Belle keeps screaming that she is in a lot of pain – she doesn’t want to lose the baby. Marlena starts remembering what to do. She asks Belle’s some questions and determines that the baby is in the breech position. When they ask her what to do – she says a caesarean. Then she says but we can’t do that here. John keeps encouraging Marlena – she remembers what she has to do to get the baby in the right position. Lexie comes in and Marlena fills her in. Lexie does a quick examination and says that the baby’s head is in the right position. She congratulates Marlena for just saving two lives. Shawn is standing outside the door as the baby is being delivered. Philip, John and Marlena offer Belle loving words of encouragement.

Lexie says it’s a girl. Phil and Belle bond and gush over their baby. Grandma and Grandpa bond as well. Shawn watches the happy family for a moment and than walks away. Alex comes to the doorway when John is hugging Marlena and telling her that she remembered her skills as a physician. Alex swings the pendant and Marlena flashes back to the session where Alex tells her that she will no longer be concerned with John or her children. She brushes her hand back. Alex tells himself that he lost her once before, he won’t leave her again. Lexie notices him and tells him she won’t have to say anything to John – it looks like Marlena is getting her memory back. She walks away. John tells Marlena ‘Congratulations. We have our first grandchild. This is a day we will never forget. Not only because of the baby but because this is the day we started to get Marlena back.’ Marlena asks John to take her home. John smiles and says that’s a good place to start the journey. Alex isn’t too pleased. He walks away. Shawn is back at the door when Mimi returns. She asks him what is wrong. He says just mixed emotions. It’s a new beginning for them and an ending for me. She tells him that endings bring new beginnings. She then says let’s go home. Shawn watches as Belle tells Philip they have a wonderful life ahead of them. Philip keeps marvelling at how perfect their baby is. Belle says I love you Philip and I love our baby. Freeze frame on Shawn – he’s smiling.

Preview: Sami confronting Nicole – You told Kate about my disguise. You helped her ruin my life. Lucas (with a new look – like the haircut) to Kate – You destroyed my life. You’re far worse than Sami could ever be. Philip to Belle – I promise you right now, both of you, I’m going to treasure and protect you for the rest of my life. Shawn to Mimi- I just want to make sure she’s alright. Mimi – Why can’t you just leave that family alone?

Pat’s Spoilers

Hospital: Lot’s went on there – lots of dialogue so I’m just going to touch on the highlights.

Mimi says we were on our way home. You just said that you had to let Belle go. Why are we here? Shawn says that was before he knew she ended up in the hospital. Mimi tells him that they saw them after she gave birth, they were fine. Of course Lexie was going to bring Belle to the hospital. They needed to clean up the baby and Belle and get the baby registered. She asks him why he just can’t leave that family alone. He tells her that he isn’t going to interfere but that doesn’t mean he is going to stop caring about her. Victor and Lucas are in the room as well. Loved Victor’s little promise that he wasn’t going to interfere in how they raised her. Lots of talk about how their lives have changed and about how much they love the baby. Victor says there is no bond like that between a father and his daughter. Shawn and Mimi come in. He says he just wants to see how they are doing. Philip gives the story about the difficult birth. Belle asks them if they want to see the baby. They do the stuff you’re supposed to do when you see a new baby and then Mimi says they should leave. Shawn has something to say. He tells them that he wishes them and their baby a healthy happy life. He knows they will be great parents. The parents thank him and Shawn and Mimi leave. Victor feels that was very generous of Shawn. Lots more gushing over the baby and discussion of names. Shawn and Mimi watch the happy family from outside the window. Shawn tells Mimi if he would have done things differently that would be him inside there with her. Mimi says if she had done things differently that would be her and Rex inside. They walk away – Shawn puts his arm around her shoulders and she puts hers around his waist. Lucas is bitter about Sami but he tries not to let that overshadow the happiness they are feeling. Lucas comes up with the name Kiki. They do talk about Kate. Philip thinks that she was wrong to do what she did. Lucas makes it clear that she is out of his life for good.

Speaking of the devil, I mean Kate she saunters out of the elevator carrying gifts. Nicole congratulates her. Kate is happy about having a new granddaughter. Nicole is talking about busting up Sami’s wedding. She tells Kate that she has a feeling Kate’s little stunt is going to come back and bite her in the ass. Lucas and Roman will never speak to her but Kate made sure that Lucas and Sami were history. Kate tells her they are too. They were a team for about a second and now there is no reason for their relationship to continue. Nicole calls her an ungrateful bitch – doesn’t faze Kate any. I’m sure she’s heard it all before – LOL! Nicole reminds her that she said there would be money in this for her. Kate says she gave her money. Nicole spent it all on the dress she wore to Brady’s wedding. Kate tells Nicole that she wasn’t the reason she could stop the wedding – Nicole sat on the information too long. Tony is the one who gave her what she needed. Kate will never forgive Nicole for the way she treated Lucas. Nicole says you paid me 5 million dollars to marry him. Kate only did that because she was the lesser of two evils. Kate holds Nicole responsible for Lucas becoming an alcoholic. Nicole brings up Austin and tells Kate she hasn’t had a chance to see him yet. Kate warns her to stay away.

Victor sees Kate outside Belle’s room so he excuses himself to go and talk to her. He tells her that this is not a good time for her to visit because Lucas is there. Victor tells Kate that the way she exposed Sami was a mistake. He hates Sami too but this wasn’t the way to do things. Kate tells him that’s the second time she heard that in 30 minutes and he’ll never believe who beat him to it. Victor says Nicole can be right sometimes. He tells her that Lucas is furious with her. Kate is confident that he will come around. Victor tells her that will never happen. He also tells her to watch her back. Sami walked around disguised as a man and no one recognised her. She could have killed her. Kate says even Sami wouldn’t go that far. She goes on to say that eventually Lucas will realise I did this for him – for his own good. Victor tells whether or not that is the case Lucas will always blame her for his unhappiness. Philip comes out and Kate is so proud. She wants to see the baby. Lucas says if she is there to see the baby he is going to leave. Kate tells him they should be there for his brother as a family. Lucas ties into her. He tells her that she destroyed his life. He never wants to see or speak to her again. As far as he is concerned she is far worse than Sami could ever be. Kate is stunned. Philip says he feels bad for the both of them and he loves them both. He goes back to the room. Victor asks Kate if it was worth it. She says yes. Philip vows to love and protect Belle and the baby forever. Lucas talks to Will. It’s a very good –one sided conversation. He tells Will that Sami is never going to change but she is still his mother and he will never try and stop him from seeing her. He also tells her that Sami could go to jail and that no, Kate won’t but she’s already paid. She’s lost him and Roman forever.

Sami’s apartment: I’m not going into the scenes with the slightly crazy old neighbour lady. It was just a history lesson for anyone that doesn’t know about all of Sami’s failed weddings. It gets to the point where Sami is so angry that she is about to attack the lady and Austin is forced to scoop her up and get her inside the apartment with the old lady yelling that Sami should be evicted – than she changes it to Sami should be committed. Sami is furious – Austin tells her that what the woman said about Sami was true. Sami tells him if he is going to criticize her he can leave. Austin says okay and heads to the door. Sami tells him not to go, she didn’t mean it. Austin tells her that is her problem – she never thinks before she says something. Sami defends herself by saying the old woman got to her. Austin says, no, what you did, got to you. Austin tells her she should get out of her dress. She agrees. She tells to get the garment bag out of the cottage. Austin opens the closet and starts pulling out other garment bags that contain wedding dresses. The first one was the one that she wore in Paris for their wedding of convenience – the gown Carrie was supposed to wear. Then there’s the dress she was going to wear when Carrie told him the truth about Will. Then he holds up the dress from their Vegas wedding.

Sami tells him there’s more. She pulls out the one she was wearing when she was going to marry Franco, the one for the wedding her and Brandon were supposed to have and the one from her first attempt to marry Lucas. She asks Austin where he was going to stay. He says he was planning on staying at Lucas’ while they were on their honeymoon. Sami is happy he is there. He tells her he needs to freshen up. She tells him he can use the shower. He does. Sami cries while holding up several of her dresses. Nicole shows up. Sami is in no mood to deal with her taunts so she is going to kick her out. She stops and says you told Kate about my disguise. You helped her ruin my life. Nicole denies it. She reminds Sami that she didn’t have the disguise – Kate could have only gotten it from Tony. She tells her no matter what someone was going to get her – she was Stan. Austin walks out wearing a towel (that didn’t many days, did it?). Nicole asks him what he is doing there. He says he is there to help Sami. Sami tells him the first thing he can do is get that drunken bitch out of her apartment. She goes to change and she tells Nicole she wants her gone before she comes out. Nicole still can’t believe he’s there. He says everyone needs a friend. Nicole asks for a hug. He says you’ve been drinking – she says and you’re still preaching. She suggests they get together before he goes back to New York. Austin asks her where she is living. She says she better call him. He gives her his cell number. Nicole leaves but stays outside the door. Sami comes out in a bathrobe. He tells her to get dressed, they are going out – he doesn’t want to listen to her whining and complaining all night. He’ll take her to Chez Rouge. She says that’s where her wedding reception was going to be. He says they’ll have room for us. She’s going to have face everyone sooner or later – better start now. She says okay but she won’t promise that there won’t be any whining and complaining.

Shawn and Mimi arrive home. Shawn loses the bowling shirt and grabs some bottled water. They sit on the couch. Mimi tells him that seeing Belle and her baby made her want to put everything behind her and be her friend again but she just can’t. Shawn gives her the look – you know the one. She says I know it was my fault. I had the abortion and I lied to Rex but if Belle had been a real friend she would have let me tell Rex in my own time and my own way. Shawn asks her if it would be easier to forgive her if she had Rex back. She says he’s never coming back. Shawn doesn’t think that’s true. He says he’s had time away from you – time to miss you. The doorbell rings. They look at each. Shawn says can you get that … she gets up to answer the door … cute moment between them as he stops her forward progress with his legs. It’s a delivery – a package from Rex. She opens it. It’s all the little things she gave Rex and stuff he saved. She goes through the box talking about the items. She tells Shawn that even though she said Rex wouldn’t come back a part of her always held out hope – now that’s gone. He’s never coming back. Shawn hugs her and tells her he is sorry. She thanks him for being there. He says where else would I be. She says they are quite the pair. Shawn refuses to sit at home all evening feeling sorry for themselves. He says how about I take you out for dinner. Mimi says no and then changes her mind and says yes. Off they go to change.

Preview: Chelsea to Billie: Why would she make it sound like you were both a couple of prostitutes? Don’t tell me Sami was telling the truth. Hope to Bo – Brady if you put yourself in the middle and Chelsea thinks that you’re siding with Billie against her you could love your daughter forever. Bo – But…Hope – Is that a chance you are willing to take? Nicole to Austin – What about me, Austin? Do you still have feelings for me too? Kate to Sami – Aren’t you going to congratulate me? Sami – I think I’m going to kill you.

Pat’s Spoilers

Billie & Chelsea: Billie serves Chelsea a TV dinner which doesn’t impress Chelsea. She complains that her real mother would make her dinner from scratch. Billie offers to make her a sandwich, or eggs… Chelsea tells her to stop – she’ll never be her mother and Bo will never be her father. Billie assures her they are not trying to replace her parents. She was created out of love. Chelsea tells Billie she is trying to hard and it’s driving her nuts. Billie asks her how come she doesn’t have a problem with Kate giving her gifts. Her reply is that she never had a grandmother before. She doesn’t want new parents she wants her old ones back. She doesn’t think it’s fair that her and Bo come alone and tell her they are her parents. Billie understands it may be difficult to accept but they are. Chelsea wants to know if her parents were still alive would she be trying to take her away from them. Billie says no she would hope that they could have to agreement about sharing her. Chelsea isn’t impressed. Billie says it’s awkward for her to but she thinks Chelsea is worth it. Chelsea delivers a crushing blow and says maybe you’re not. Billie sucks it up and asks if they can be friends. Chelsea says she has friends and walks out.

Chelsea comes out in something that is supposed to be a designer outfit … I think my eyes rolled into the back of my head … LOL! Billie doesn’t like it. Chelsea spouts the young designer line spiel. They end up talking about what Sami said to her at the wedding. Chelsea notices the look on Billie’s face after she had gone on and on listing all the reasons why Sami couldn’t have been telling the truth about her and Kate being hookers. Chelsea realises that Sami was right. Billie gives her the entire story. Chelsea is shocked to learn she comes from a family of hookers and wonders if it’s genetic. Billie tells her she will break the cycle. (Not dressed like that she won’t). Chelsea says you can’t promise me that. She must be cursed she yells and runs out and phones Bo – “I really need you Daddy).

Absolutely loved the Bo and Hope scenes. So romantic and so much fun. They were both planning this little romantic getaway as a surprise. Bo likes to sail but he likes the boat the most because it gives them a place to be all alone. And because of Sami they have this time to be together. Bo can’t believe that she got involved with DiMera. Hope is going through the bags and realises that the pie didn’t packed and that was their dessert. Bo kisses her and tells he has his own ideas for dessert. Needless to say they start with dessert. They are lying in bed and Hope says she could stay there forever – just listening to his heart beat, feeling his skin against hers but they do have to make dinner. She’s pretty confident that they both worked up an appetite. Bo is thinking about what Sami did and says she could have gotten Shawn killed. Hope says Shawn is home safe and sound – all of them are. It’s in the past. Bo says that Sami has done a lot of stupid things but what was she thinking. Hope says she wasn’t. Roman and Lucas will never trust her again. She feels really sorry for Will. He’s just a kid and now he has to deal with another one of his mother’s messes. Bo asks Hope how she thinks Shawn is dealing with Belle having a baby. Hope’s reply is not well. Bo says you still think that he and Belle should be together. She says yes. Bo warns her that pushing him to get back with her would wind up being bad for everyone especially Shawn. Hope agrees with him. She watched Philip and Belle while they were standing at the altar and she could see that Belle loves Philip – that they love each other. She doesn’t know if it’s the same as the love she has for Shawn but they have a baby now and their love will only grown. Bo says having a baby can do that. Hope whispers with her back to Bo ‘you’re right about that’.

Hope is making some sauce – more really loving, fun moments between them. Hope is going to get some dessert. Bo says he will call Chelsea. Hope says she doesn’t think that Chelsea and Billie can have a healthy relationship. Bo asks her why. She doesn’t want to say anything because he’ll get upset and it will ruin their evening. He tells her he will be upset if she doesn’t tell him. She says the two of them are exactly like. Bo knows that things sometimes get out of hand between the two of them but that’s common between a mother and daughter. Hope warns him not to put himself in the middle because if Chelsea thinks he’s siding with Billie he could lose his daughter forever. He tries to argue but she cuts him off and asks him if that is what he wants. She leaves. A while later Chelsea comes barrelling down the stairs into her daddy’s arms. Before Bo can find out what’s going on Billie comes rushing in. She tells Bo how she took off speeding in her car – running red lights… Chelsea tells Bo she had to get to him – that’s all she could think about. Bo tells her when you’re behind the wheel of a car you have to be responsible. Chelsea is angry – she says I should have known you would take her side…cue Hope’s entrance just at that moment.

Kate and Nicole – Not going into much detail here. They spent practically the entire episode with Nicole telling Kate they were going out to Chez Rouge for dinner and Kate saying no she wasn’t going anywhere – she’s trying to get in touch with Austin. Finally Nicole tells her it’s about Sami. They get to Chez Rouge and order drinks – Nicole checks out the bartender. Kate says she is going to the ladies room and coming back and finishing her wine. If Sami isn’t there by then she’s leaving. Nicole wonders where Austin and Sami are. She spots him sitting by himself. She joins him and comments on him being alone. He says he isn’t, he’s with Sami. Nicole says ever the gentleman. He gives Sami a shoulder to cry on even though she almost ruined his life in Vegas. He says doesn’t mean I don’t sill care for her. Nicole asks – what about her – does he still care for her.

Sami and Austin – When they arrive outside the restaurant Austin receives a call he has to take. The valet points out the Closed for Private Party sign and says the restaurant is open. There was supposed to be a wedding a reception but the bride turned out to be some international terrorist and the groom left her at the altar. By the time Austin comes back Sami is upset. Austin says the guy doesn’t know you were the bride, does he. Sami doesn’t think so – but it doesn’t matter – he’s talking about her like she is garbage. Austin says are you sure it isn’t because you feel like garbage. Sami doesn’t know if it was a good idea to come out for dinner with him. Austin asks her why she let what the valet had to say upset her – only children worry about being called names. He asks her when is she going to grow up and stop be her own worst enemy. Austin tells her to stop lashing out. She can change – empower herself. She will find love again and the next time it will be forever.

Sami goes inside the restaurant. Mickey and Maggie are surprised to see her but gracious nonetheless. Maggie asks her if she will be okay dining alone. Austin comes in and says she’s not alone. Very nice reunion between the three. They are seated at their table. Sami can’t believe Austin cares about her – no one else does. He tells her that he is not like anyone else. She says you never were. He knows what it feels like to have your world fall apart. Sami says yes you do, because of me. Austin says it’s worse if you don’t have someone to lean on. He tells her to go freshen up and then they’ll have dinner. Sami is in the ladies room crying over losing Lucas when she encounter when very smug Kate Roberts…grrr. Kate really digs the knife in and twists it a few times for good measure. She asks Sami if she isn’t going to congratulate her. Sami says congratulate you – I think I’m going to kill you. Freeze frame on one very angry Sami going after Kate with a candlestick raised over her head.

Maggie is calling her regulars to tell them the restaurant is open for business. Mickey says she is ever the business woman. They start talking about all of Sami’s wedding disasters. They can’t believe she got involved with Tony. Maggie asks him what he’ll do if Roman and Sami ask him to defend her on charges of treason. Shawn and Mimi enter the restaurant … okay that suit and tie… looking good. I liked Mimi’s outfit as well. Very demure…LOL! Mimi apologises for the way her mother acted earlier and tells Maggie that she really did take the food to the women’s shelter – at least most of it. Maggie tells her that she doesn’t hold anything Bonnie does against Mimi – she is always welcome here. Maggie asks about Belle. Shawn says they had a baby girl. Maggie is happy that at least there is something to celebrate. They mention dinner. Mimi says they are on a budget so they’ll only have appetizers. Maggie tells them nonsense; they have all this food left over from the wedding that will spoil. Besides it’s all paid for. After they are seated Mimi says it’s been quite a day. Shawn tells her he couldn’t have gotten through it without her. Maggie points them out to Mickey – she thinks they look so cute together – if I remember correctly she even says the word ‘love’ in there somewhere. Mickey looks quite happy.

They are enjoying their meal. Shawn says it’s a lot better than those microwave meals he usually happens. Mimi mentions the smell of cooking from Belle and Philip’s apartment. Shawn drifts off. Mimi says ‘earth to Shawn’. He is thinking about Belle. He knows it’s over but seeing her with her child made it real. Mimi says we really are adults now aren’t we. Mickey tells Maggie that he told the chef to prepare a chocolate mousse cake for Shawn and Mimi. He’s very romantic with Maggie. He tells her that he heard chocolate was an aphrodisiac. She says she doesn’t know about him but she doesn’t need one. Mickey takes the cake over and serves it. He talks about how he and Maggie think they are so good together – talks about how nice it is that they are dating. LOL – love the looks on Shawn and Mimi’s faces. Shawn says we aren’t dating. We’re good friends. Mimi is the type of friend I wouldn’t want to be without. Mickey tells them to hang on to that – a friendship like that is rare. Maggie comes over and asks them to do her a favour. She gives them a long story about the DJ getting a complex because no one is dancing. She asks if they would dance and save the kid years of therapy. They do so. Maggie watches them dancing and says to Mickey – Look at them. They are perfect together. He says you have it all wrong. They aren’t dating. Maggie says maybe not now but they will be.

Previews: Belle to Shawn and Mimi – It would mean a lot to both Philip and me if you both would do us the honour of being our daughter’s godparents. Bo to Billie and Hope – She (Chelsea) said she had a problem relating to you guys. (Love the look Billie and Hope share). Nicole to Austin – You must have a bunch of women waiting for you in New York. Austin – Trouble is I left my heart here in Salem.

He reminds her that the baby shower wasn’t supposed to happen until next month but promises that they will have everything they need by the time she and the baby go home.

They talk about baby names and decide to each write down their favorite name on a piece of paper and see if they match. They both pick the same name, and baby will be called Claire.

The brothers hug and Austin is so pleased that Philip is okay. He congratulates him on having a wife and baby and is amazed at how well Philip is doing with his walking.

Austin walks back to the table and Nicole comes out of hiding after eavesdropping. She is dying to know what Austin meant but also wishes she knew what happened to Kate and Sami. She goes back to the table and Austin talks about how amazed he is that so much has happened since he was away. Nicole mumbles that he probably heard that half of Salem’s population died and came back. She murmurs that she wished some of them had stayed dead.

Ladies Room: Sami & Kate

Sami is holding a heavy candlestick and brandishing it at Kate. Kate warns her that she wouldn’t do that unless Sami wants to spend her wedding night in jail. Sami tells her that it would be worth it but she isn’t going to kill her...because she would have to touch her and the idea makes her skin crawl. She tells Kate that she will hate her eternally.

Kate goes on about how she won and Sami lost. Sami is heartbroken and rages at Kate that it wasn’t a game...she was good for Lucas and he was good for her...but that Kate lost as well...she lost Lucas and he will never let her see Will again...Roman is divorcing her...and John doesn’t want her either. She says that Kate was a bitter and miserable woman before but that now she will be a lonely, bitter, and miserable woman. Kate agrees that she paid a high price but that it was worth it. Then...cough...cough...Miss Kate actually says that unlike Sami, she puts others before herself....talks about real love and making sacrifices and how someday they will all realize that she did all of this for Lucas and Will.

Sami reminds her about the drugs and Brandon and says that if it wasn’t for Kate and her disgusting plotting, she would be married right now. She doesn’t call it a victory. Kate rags on Sami for insulting Chelsea. Sami tells her that she feels sorry for Chelsea because Kate will probably ruin her life just like she did Lucas’s and Will’s. Sami mentions the 5 million Kate spent to by Lucas a bride—Nicole—and how bad that turned out. She cries that what she and Lucas had was real love.

Kate calls Sami crazy. She thinks that Sami and Nicole were the worst things that could ever happen to Lucas and swears that Will and Lucas will never have anything to do with either of them again. Kate wonders why Sami would even come to the restaurant on the night of her botched wedding reception...and alone. Sami asks Kate what makes her think that she came by herself. Kate is sure that if someone did come with Sami it must be a lowlife. Kate leaves and Sami thinks that she is in for quite a shock.

Kate sees Austin and they hug. Then she sees Nicole and isn’t a happy camper. She wants to know what he is doing with her and tells Nicole to leave. Austin tells his mom not to be rude but Nicole goes anyway. Kate is busy making plans for them to have dinner but he tells her he’s not alone.

She talks about the good food, good music, and good company. They she mentions the bouquet and garter toss and how her mom practically shoved them into it, acting like they should get married to each other. Shawn smiles and says that at least they didn’t have to do the chicken dance.

They go back to the table and talk about being friends for so long. He wonders if they could feel this relaxed if they were a couple. Mimi tells him that dating sucks because there are all these awkward stages with long silences. She mentions Belle and then Kevin and Rex. A waiter comes along with a bottle of champagne for them, compliments from Mr. Horton. Shawn gives a toast for their long friendship.

Mimi talks about feeling sorry for Sami and thinks maybe they should say a toast to her because the champagne was supposed to be for her wedding reception. Shawn reminds her of Sami’s crimes. Mimi decides to toast to each other instead...that they will find happiness. Shawn looks at her and says: “To second chances...may we find...” Mimi interrupts and says: “and keep”, Shawn smiles, agrees and continues: “May we find and keep true love.” He asks her if she wants to dance again and she agrees. Just then Shawn’s cellphone rings. It’s Philip. He wants them to come to the hospital right away.
