At the DiMera Mansion
Belle and Brady overhear Marlena say she remembers giving birth to the twins. Belle has a hard time believing it could be true, and thinks this means that Marlena and Tony slept together. John tells her that the twins were made in a lab and Marlena carried them and gave birth to them while she was on the DiMera Island. Cassie doesnt believe they are a real family because Tony and Marlena are not married. Marlena tries to explain how different families sometimes are and John steps in. He tells Cassie and Rex that he will open his heart to them regardless of how he used to feel and apologizes for his previous suspicions. He tells them that they should reevaluate their relationships with one another and Cassie steps in saying they should start with Marlena. She starts by saying that Marlena cant stand Tony and tells John he is too little to late with opening his heart to them. She believes that John will resent them even more now, knowing they are Marlenas children. Cassie also mentions how Belle already believes she is trying to ruin her life and sarcastically comments that this development will really make their relationship better. Cassie says that John and Marlena worship Belle and Brady and there will never be enough room in their hearts for her and Rex, stating that they will only ever feel contempt for them. John tells Cassie that the two of them are a lot alike. He tells her about his arrival in Salem and how he lashed out at people and turned away friendship and love. He tells her not to make the same mistakes he did and tells her that Marlena is a wonderful mother and wants to love them. Brady, silent up until this point, walks to Rex and hugs him and welcomes him to the family. Marlena goes to Belle in an effort to comfort her when Rex asks Tony if they are really sure about this. Marlena explains that while on the compound she remembered everything from who was born first, Rex, and the fact that the both of them had incredible lungs-they both cried loudly after their birth. She tells them that they were beautiful and believes it was the last time she held them. The twins are confused and she tells them about the memory she had of crying babies and has another memory, this time of someone putting the babies in a boat. Tony asks Marlena if this is the same memory she had when he and John found her on the cliffs and she believes it is, only this time it is much more vivid, saying she remembers it all now. Rex comes to Marlena and hugs her as Cassie watches crying.

Palmer believes it is another Brady cover-up and Roman gets really upset with him until Abe steps in telling them they need to go outside and talk. Inside, Bo, Hope, and Shawn listen to Roman chewing the DA out. A few minutes later Palmer comes back in and tells Shawn that due to new evidence he is free to go. Roman turns to leave after the DA is gone but Bo stops him. Bo tells him that he still has a problem with how Roman handled Shawn but appreciates what he said to the DA for them.
