No one recognized the name.  Marlena suggested that they find out who she Yvette Brown is.  John said they have to find out who she is before Stefano made good on his threats.  Abe comforted Lexie over her illness.  Stefano was on the phone telling someone to get what he wants from John and Hope or else.  Stefano had a flashback of when he was younger.  He was with his dying father.  His father wanted him to continue to do what he couldnít.  His father needed him to find something.  His father said the future of the family depended on it.  Kate showed up at the mansion.  Stefano wanted her out of the mansion.  She wanted to tell him about Lexie.  She told him that Lexie was sick and dying.  He didnít believe her.  He got a call from Lexie.  Lexie wanted him to come down to the hospital so they could talk in person.  When she said it was important, he agreed to go to the hospital.  Kate wanted to go with him, but he didnít want her to go.  She insisted that she go because she loves Lexie too.  The two left the mansion.  Sami offered Lucas a job working with her.  Lucas didnít think it was a good idea working with her.  They talked about the offer until he left.  He let her know that he would be in touch.  EJ didnít think it would be a good idea for them to leave Salem.  Nicole thought it was a good idea.  When EJ kept objecting to the idea of leaving, Nicole thought it was because of Sami.  EJ denied Nicoleís accusation, but she didnít believe him.  When EJ kept coming up with excuses not to leave, Nicole thought he made his choice and chose Sami.  EJ said he didnít choose Sami and that he wanted to raise their baby together.  She said that it wasnít his baby.  EJ got a call and had to leave.  She cried after he left. 

Stefano and Kate ran into John, Marlena, and Hope at the hospital.  John thought he was harassing them about the coin until Lexie showed up.  When Stefano and Lexie embraced, Marlena wanted to know what was going on.  Kate told them that Lexie was dying and she wanted them to leave Stefano alone.  Lexie told Stefano that she has an inoperable brain tumor.  Stefano wanted to talk to the doctor.  Lexie said the doctor was going to tell him the same thing.  Stefano was getting upset, but Lexie tried to get him to face reality.  Stefano told her they were not going to let her give up.  Kate asked if there was anything she could do.  Stefano told her that she could leave.  She left.  Lexie asked why Stefano treated her like that.  He said he couldnít stand her.  Stefano wanted to call a doctor he knew, but she said not to.  She wanted him to accept reality.  When they hugged, EJ showed up.  John and Marlena saw Abe and talked to him about Lexie.  They tried to make him feel better about what was happening with Lexie.  Abe broke down and wondered what he was going to do without her.  Lexie told EJ that the tests were conclusive.  She said there was nothing anyone could do.  Stefano wanted EJ to take Lexie to her office so he could speak to the doctor.  When EJ and Lexie left, Stefano wanted to know what the doctor was going to do to help Lexie.  She said the best thing they could do was palliative care (make her feel comfortable).  Stefano told her the best thing she could do was keep his daughter alive.  He said if she couldnít do it, he would take matters into his own hands.  Lucas went back to Samiís and told her he would take the offer if it still stood.  He warned her that Kate was after her, which was why he took the job.  EJ asked Lexie how much time they had.  She said not enough.  He didnít want her to be strong.  He wanted her to cry on his shoulder.  The doctor warned Stefano that his threats were not going to help cure Lexie.  He apologized.  He wanted to know if what happened to Lexie was genetic.  She said tumors like Lexieís usually result from exposure to a specific gas.  She said the gas could be toxic, even fatal in high quantities.  He wanted to know how she could come in contact with that.  She said anywhere from a power plant or a factory.  She said the gas could be found underground, particularly in old mines and tunnels.  While Stefano thought it could have been his fault that Lexie had a tumor, Abe walked up and asked what did he say.
