Nancy lets Chloe know that she is going to get ready for the party and she hopes that Chloe will too.

John asks them if they are going to get changed, and Belle tells him that she is wearing what she has on (blue dress). John asks her why she is not wearing a pink dress that she wore at some wedding and Belle reminds him that she was 10 at the time. She says that she is practically old enough to have a wedding of her own and John is taken aback. Brady and Belle laugh when she tells him that she likes to see all John go pale over stuff like that. Marlena calms John down by saying that he is just having a hard time letting go of his little girl. She remarks that she is comfortable knowing that Belle is responsible and beautiful. Brady pouts his lip and asks about himself, and Marlena says he is too. Belle tells John and Marlena to leave without her because Shawn is picking her up. She says that going with them would be "lame", and John asks Brady if him going with them is "lame" as well. He agrees. Brady leaves and John tells him to be careful. John asks Marlena what she meant by the comment that she made about Belle being responsible while giving Belle a "look". Marlena says she she doesn't know what "look" she gave Belle, but Belle just tells John that it has to do with a conversation that they had earlier about if her and Shawn were making "mad passionate love". John looks stunned.
Bo races down the stairs and Shawn leaves to go get Belle. Hope notices Bo's wet hair and they kiss. Bo admits that he was dragging his feet while getting ready because he did not really want to go to the party but he remembered how Hope said that it was really important for him to go. He tells her however, that he still does agree with John that going to the party might not be a good idea because he has a feeling that something bad might happen there.

Bart asks Rolf if he is sure that the machine works or not and Rolf tells him not to worry, that he is ready for war.
Hope gets mad at Bo for being as bad as John about Lexie. She tries to comfort him by saying that they are going to a party thrown by her best friend, so nothing could go wrong, plus, if she falls, he will be there to catch her. Bo tells her that he doesn't like to be at the DiMera mansion for any reason, and they hug. Bo asks her if they have some time left before they leave....
Dr Rolf flicks around the video cameras that are installed and wonders what will happen with Lexie that night.

Abe tells her that he did not send her a gift, and she wonders who did.
Jack spies on Jen getting ready and he had another flashback to that same day when Jen had her fake eyelashes on. In the flashback he removes the eyelashes and tells her that he is going to save them to remember how he told her how beautiful she was.

He asks Jen if she remembers the first time that she wore them and she tells him that of course she does, how could she have forgotten???
Chloe gets mad at Brady for speaking to Phillip and how he had no right to intefere. Brady tells her that it was not the reaction he expected, and she tells him that her and Phillip were together for over a year, and that it's not something that is easy to forget and throw away. Brady says that there is nothing left to say and leaves.
At the party, Dr Rolf interrupts Lexie and Abe and asks to speak to her. Rolf tells her to stay calm/in control and she worries that she might not be able to. Rolf asks her to look at the black pendant closely in the light, and she sees an image of a moving Phoenix. Rolf tells her that Stefano wants her to remember that the Phoenix ultimately rises above and that she is a DiMera, just like her father.
