Philip emerges from the closet to find Shawn in the entryway. Belle comes out shortly after asking Philip what he is doing. Shawn sees them both and asks what kind of party game this is. Philip says it is not what it looks like. Belle asks Shawn what he is doing here. Shawn says they had a date. Belle says she knows, up at Lookout Point. Shawn tells Belle that she was a no show. Philip starts to defend Belle by saying it was his fault but Shawn interrupts and says he’d rather hear this from Belle. Belle tells Shawn that he has no idea what kind of night she and Philip have had.

The officer is leading Cassie into the station. Cassie is asking the officer if he has any idea who her father is and that Tony will have his badge for this. Roman tells the officer that he will take it from here and the officer says all yours captain and leaves. Roman tells Cassie to sit but Cassie tells Roman that he has been trying to pin something on her since Colin Murphy was killed. Roman repeats that he told Cassie to sit. Cassie sits and tells Roman that he is going to pay for this. Roman asks Cassie if she wants to add threatening a police officer to the charges she is already facing. Marlena comes in the station at that point and asks Roman what he means, what are the charges. Cassie runs over to Marlena. Roman tells Marlena that he is glad to see her. Marlena asks what is going on and Roman says that Marlena’s daughter is under arrest for solicitation. Cassie looks to the floor as Marlena looks shocked.

Rex leads Mimi into his room as they kiss. Mimi tells Rex to pinch her so she knows she isn’t dreaming. Rex says that is even better. They move onto the bed. Mimi asks who knew that making love would be so everything. Rex says he knew the first time he kissed her. Mimi asked if he knew they’d make love. Rex says he hoped. Mimi starts to say that this keeps getting and Rex completes her sentence by saying better and better and that he loves her. Mimi tells Rex that he doesn’t have to keep saying that even if it is what every woman wants to hear. Rex repeats that he loves Mimi and Mimi says she loves him too. Mimi says she keeps thinking about the dead guy Rolf. Rex tells Mimi not to go there. Mimi asks if it creeps Rex out that they dropped a dead guy off at the morgue as a John Doe and asks what if someone found out, that they’d lock them up. Rex says no one is going to trace a dead body to two innocent college students. Mimi points out that Rex isn’t in college anymore. Rex says he is innocent though. Mimi says she knows and sighs. Mimi asks Rex if he remembers how he felt when he found out that Marlena and Tony were not his parents, how he felt his whole life was falling apart and compares it to how she would feel if she lost Rex and doesn’t think she could stand it if that happens.

Brady and Nicole are standing outside of the stall Nicole hid Rolf’s body in. The ice is melting on Rolf’s body and is dripping onto the ground. Brady tells Nicole to stop playing games. Nicole says she is not playing games. Brady tells Nicole to stop stalling. Nicole says she can’t think with Brady looking at her like that. Brady tells Nicole to stop it and asks what this secret is that she’s been so anxious to tell him. Nicole says she has done something, something bad and has been afraid all night that Brady would find out.

Nicole tells Brady that he’s right; she has been trying to hide something. Nicole continues to add that she has been through hell tonight. Brady tells Nicole that he thought she was just acting like a bitch to torture the rest of them. Nicole says she doesn’t blame Brady for being angry but Victor just sprang this party on her without any notice and she hates surprises and starts to ramble on. Brady interrupts and tells Nicole to cut to the chase. Nicole says she heard Victor and Brady arranging Brady’s moving in. Brady tells Nicole that she already gave him hell for that. Nicole tells Brady that he could have asked her first. Brady says that the Kiriakis mansion is a big house and if they work hard at it, they could never have to see each other. Brady asks Nicole what bad thing she has done besides jumping into the pool and pretending to not be able to swim. Nicole says she wasn’t pretending. Brady tells Nicole to stop stalling because she has obviously been working overtime to distract him and asks what is really going on. Nicole says alright if Brady must know, the stable has been her hideaway, the only place she can be alone until today when Brady came along. Nicole says that she feels safe there, it’s her only escape. Brady asks what she needs to escape from; she has everything a woman could possibly want.

Mimi sits up in bed and says she can’t believe this is happening, she has gone from Love Is Blind to armed and dangerous. Rex says Mimi’s name but Mimi continues to say they have to leave town right away before the cops come after them, they can pack their bags and head west. Rex says nothing is going to happen to them, they didn’t do anything wrong. Mimi says that they drove around with a dead guy in the car, they took him rollerblading and they are going to find Dr. Rolf in the morgue and throw the book at them. Rex says no one is even looking for Dr. Rolf. Mimi asks Rex how he knows and Rex says he has been using his PA to check the news for any reports of finding an unidentified corpse. Mimi says they will find Rolf eventually and do a DNA thing and find out who he is and start investigating. Rex asks so what if they do because they can’t connect him to us, his death was an accident. Mimi says they could have done more to help him. Rex says they couldn’t have and tells Mimi to stop feeling guilty and concentrate on them. Mimi says she can’t wait until they are alone again. Rex points out that they are alone. Mimi says they can’t make love here. Rex asks why not and says they tried before. Mimi says that Rex’s father almost caught them. Rex says Tony is not his father. Mimi says he almost walked in and she nearly suffocated to death hiding under the covers. Rex tells Mimi to relax and that they’ll just hold each other. They lay down on the bed as Rex wraps his arms around Mimi. Mimi asks Rex what he is thinking. Rex says he is thinking how perfect his life is and how he loves being here with Mimi. Rex adds that he is happy being a DiMera and doesn’t want anything to change. Mimi says it already has, that Tony is not Rex’s father, Roman is. Rex says that they are the only two that know that and they are going to keep it that way. Mimi sits up and asks Rex if he can really go on pretending that Tony and Marlena are his biological parents. Rex says yeah and asks Mimi why he should change for some guy he hates and some mystery woman who just happens to share the same DNA as him. Rex asks Mimi to promise him that she won’t tell anyone. Mimi says she promises but he has to tell Cassie the truth, she deserves to know that Roman is her father too. Rex says no, the truth would kill Cassie. Mimi says that living with the truth will kill him.

Marlena asks Roman why anyone would accuse her daughter for prostitution. Roman explains that Cassie came on to a guy at the pier and was about to take money for sex. Cassie says that that is a lie. Roman continues to say that the guy was a cop and there is hard evidence here or Cassie wouldn’t be here. Roman adds that he heard the cop call in the report and that’s when he called Marlena at the hospital and asked her to come down here. Roman tells Marlena that this is serious and Cassie won’t be able to just walk away from this one. Marlena says that this is clearly some misunderstanding and asks Cassie what happened. Cassie says that this is all a joke and she’ll be out of here in no time. Roman asks Cassie what part of arrest she doesn’t understand. Cassie asks Roman if she has rights and says she is going to make a phone call. Roman walks over and picks up the phone for Cassie as he says she gets one phone call. Cassie takes the phone and begins dialing as Marlena tells Cassie to tell Tony that she would like to speak to him too. Cassie says she isn’t calling Tony. Marlena tells Cassie that she needs his help. Cassie says she doesn’t want Tony to come down and see her in handcuffs; it’s bad enough that Roman involved Marlena. Rex picks up the phone. Cassie tells Rex that she needs his help and has been arrested. Rex asks what she has been arrested for. Cassie says it is some trumped up charge and that Roman Brady is out to get her. Cassie tells Rex to hurry and Rex says he is on his way and they hang up. Roman tells Cassie that she just wasted her one phone call. Cassie tells Roman that Rex is going to help her, he always has and there is no way he is going to let Roman get away with this. Roman tells Cassie that what she needs right now is not her brother but a lawyer and the best lawyer Tony’s money can buy.

Shawn says he is listening. Belle tells Shawn that she and Philip got caught in a tight spot. Philip explains that Belle was trying to help him and Belle adds that it backfired. Philip says that he couldn’t take the party scene anymore so he left without telling Belle where he was going and that Belle came looking for him and it was dark and somehow her dress got caught. Belle adds that she couldn’t get it loose without ripping her dress and the only way to get free was to take it off. Shawn asks Philip what happened to his clothes and asks if he comes to a party dressed like that. Philip says it was hot so he took his jacket off to cool down. Belle explains that Philip got dirty helping her and that she knows how this looks but it was all innocent and she swears to him that that is the truth. Shawn thinks this over and walks out of the mansion slamming the door behind him. Belle cringes at the sound and sighs.

Brady asks Nicole what she could have to escape from; she lives the life people dream about. Nicole says those people don’t know what it’s like to be Mrs. Victor Kiriakis. Nicole adds that Victor expects her to know the rules, to conduct herself accordingly. Brady says that she knew what she was getting into when she married Victor. Nicole says she didn’t know she was going to lose her freedom, her whole identity and her job at Titan, the one thing she was good at. Brady tells Nicole to tell Victor, not him. Nicole says she can’t. Brady says that Victor did not marry her to make her miserable and if Nicole is unhappy Victor would want to know. Nicole tells Brady that he doesn’t know. Brady says that Nicole can’t spend her entire married life hiding out in the stables. Nicole says she and Victor’s thoroughbreds have a lot in common, luxurious housing and servants to groom them and care for their every need but they share the same longing. Brady asks what longing that is. Nicole says that is to be free. Brady asks free from whom, free from what, Victor. Nicole says when she is riding her favorite horse, she is totally free, anything is possible doing what she wants, being what she wants, her whole future ahead of her. Brady asks if she means her whole future without her husband.

Victor is seeing some party guests out as he tells them that Nicole will be sorry that she missed saying goodbye. Maya walks up after Victor closes the door behind the guests and says that Victor’s family seems to be missing in action. Victor tells Maya that she is stuck with him then. Maya says it is her good fortune as she hands Victor a glass. They drink to their continued association as they clink glasses. Maya says it was a wonderful party and thanks Victor for inviting her. Victor tells Maya that she made a lovely addition to the party and adds that she made quite the impression on Tony. Maya says Tony is charming but Victor tells Maya if she scratched the surface, she’d find that Tony was a pit bull. Maya thanks Victor for the warning. Maya asks Victor if he knows where Nicole is because she doesn’t want to leave without thanking her. Victor says he has no idea because he hasn’t seen her in quite some time.

Philip peeks outside of the closet again and tells Belle that it is all clear. Belle says she can’t keep hiding in the closet; she has to go put some clothes on and go find Shawn. Philip offers to go get her something to put on but Shawn comes back in and tells Philip not to bother. Belle tells Shawn she thought he left. Shawn says he only went as far as his car and hands Belle his baseball jacket as she puts it on. Belle asks Shawn if he is mad but Shawn says that he just had to get some fresh air and that he knows Belle wouldn’t lie to him, he’s just had a rough night. Belle says to tell her about it and Shawn asks if she is ready to go. Belle says yes and they start to leave. Philip asks Belle and Shawn not to mention this to anyone else because he’ll never land another date in this town. Belle and Shawn both agree to keep the secret. Shawn asks Belle if she wants him to go rescue her dress but Philip offers to do it and have it repaired for Belle. Maya comes in and says look who made the party after all. Shawn goes to introduce Belle as his girlfriend but Belle interrupts to say they’ve met. Maya says she thought Belle was Philip’s date. Philip says Belle wasn’t exactly their date as Belle adds that they are friends and grew up together. Maya says that is sweet as she notices what Belle is wearing and says that is attractive. Shawn says there was an accident and Maya says she thought Shawn’s girlfriend was into cross dressing.

Marlena asks Cassie if she was at the docks tonight. Cassie asks if that is a crime too. Marlena says it is dangerous if she was alone and asks Cassie if she was alone. Cassie says there was a cop there and Marlena says evidently. Cassie says all she did was talk to him. Marlena asks Cassie if she knew that he was an undercover policeman. Cassie says the policeman wasn’t wearing a sign. Marlena asks Cassie what she said, that she said something that made him think she was a prostitute. Cassie says that maybe the policeman had the hots for her. Roman overhears this as he walks up and hands Marlena a folder telling her that this should answer all of her questions. Marlena asks what it is and Roman says it is a copy of the police report and says it includes a transcript of Cassie and the policeman’s conversation verbatim where Cassie asked the policeman if he thought he could satisfy her because she isn’t cheap and when the policeman offered her $50, Cassie asked for more. Marlena asks Cassie if this is true. Cassie asks Marlena why she is asking her for Roman has all the answers. Marlena asks Cassie what she was thinking. Roman tells Cassie that whatever she was trying to prove backfired because what she did before was kid stuff and this isn’t kid stuff and she isn’t going to walk away from this, she is looking at jail time. Cassie asks Roman to please shut up. Marlena implores Roman to back off but Roman tells Marlena that what Sami needed was tough love but it hurt too much to give it to her but the last thing Cassie needs is special treatment. Roman continues to say that what a lot of kids who start going down the wrong path need is jail time. Roman tells Marlena that no matter how fragile she thinks Cassie is, her daughter is on the way to self destruction. Mimi and Rex arrive as Cassie asks Roman where he gets off telling her what to do. Cassie tells Roman that he is not her father and he just hates her because she is a DiMera. Roman says that is it and tells the officer to book her. Marlena says she is calling Mickey and goes to the phone. The officer starts to lead Cassie away as she sees Rex and tells him to help her. Rex confronts Roman asking him what the hell he thinks he’s doing.

Shawn leads Belle out onto the terrace. Belle asks Shawn if they can still have their date. Shawn says he thinks it is a little late for that. Belle says she is sorry and that they could have been alone underneath the stars. Shawn says they are alone right now and they kiss. Belle asks why she ever agreed to come to this party with Philip. Shawn says it is alright and don’t ever let it happen again. Belle says she better watch her step or Maya might move in on Shawn. Shawn says not a chance. Belle says she thinks Maya’s interest is Shawn is more than professional and she’s glad Shawn moved her away from Maya or she might have scratched her eyes out. Shawn says he thought he was the only person who had reason to be jealous. Belle asks if Shawn means Philip and says no way. They hug and kiss. Shawn asks Belle if she figured out what is going on with Philip. Belle says she isn’t sure because Philip is being really guarded. Shawn says he remembers when Philip used to tell them everything, didn’t keep any secrets. Belle says maybe being a marine has changed him and it started last summer when Philip and Chloe broke up. Shawn says a lot of things have changed since last summer. Belle says that Chloe is gone and Shawn adds that Rex and Cassie are now Belle’s siblings. Shawn adds that one thing hasn’t changed, that Shawn and Belle are still together. Belle says they are forever and they kiss. Shawn asks Belle if she wants to go in the pool as he pretends to push her in. Belle shrieks. Belle asks Shawn if he is kidding but Shawn says he is dying and asks Belle if it isn’t hot out here as he takes off his shirt. Belle says this isn’t their pool. Shawn says that the party is over, no one will care. Belle says they don’t have their swimsuits. Shawn says so and Belle says she will die if anyone sees them. Shawn says he dares Belle. Belle says he’s on and takes off Shawn’s coat. Shawn asks if Belle is going in the pool with her slip on and Belle says she isn’t and takes off her slip, revealing her underwear. Shawn notices that Belle isn’t wearing her day of the week panties. Belle says no she definitely does not as Shawn tells Belle to get into the pool because soon he will not be responsible for his actions. Belle says okay and gets into the pool. Belle says it feels great and splashes Shawn as Shawn takes off his pants. Shawn asks Belle what she is doing. Belle says she thought Shawn wanted to cool off and Shawn says he will make Belle pay for that as Belle tells Shawn she wants him to do his Tarzan yell. Shawn doesn’t want to do it because it would cause a scene and people would come out to see what was going on. Belle asks why he can’t do it for her if he can do it for his baseball team. Shawn does the yell and jumps in. Belle laughs and says she wishes she had a camera. Belle notices that Shawn is uncomfortable and asks what the matter is. Shawn says he has lost his shorts and that this isn’t good. Belle asks Shawn if he isn’t happy to see her. Shawn says he is very happy to see her as they kiss.

Philip is finishing dressing in his dress blues by fastening his belt as he is talking to Maya. Philip asks Maya why he hasn’t seen her at any of Victor’s other parties. Maya points out that Philip has been away at boot camp. Philip says he has some catching up to do as he asks Maya for the whereabouts of her date. Maya says she is alone tonight. Philip asks Maya if she didn’t come with Tony DiMera. Maya says Tony is a little old for her. Philip says he thought Maya and Tony looked a little tight. Maya says that Tony could be a potential client but in her personal life, she prefers younger men as she rubs her hand on Philip’s face. Philip asks her what kind of business she is in as he walks into the living room. Maya laughs and follows Philip into the living room. Maya says her business is arts and antiques and she inherited an import/export business from her father and he and Victor worked together for years and that she supposes Philip will inherit Titan one day. Philip says not to put that on him because he is not the business type. Maya says unlike Shawn. Philip says he doesn’t believe Shawn is the business type. Maya asks how he knows and Philip says they grew up together, having been best friends since they were kids. Maya asks Philip when Shawn and Philip started competing for “the little blonde’s” affections. Philip tells Maya that there is no competition, that Belle is Shawn’s girl. Maya says Belle is lucky because Shawn is sexy and has the makings of a fine attorney since he’s been helping her with the lawsuit she’s filing. Philip says he can’t picture Shawn working behind a desk. Maya says Shawn may surprise him in more ways than one. Philip asks Maya why she is so interested. Maya moves in close as she repeats that she said she was interested in younger men. Philip says that Shawn is taken. Maya says that doesn’t stop Philip from lusting after Belle and not to deny it because it is written all over his face as she moves her hand around in front of his face.

Rex asks Roman why he is treating Cassie like this and asks what she has done. Roman tells Rex that Cassie committed a crime and he would suggest that Rex would calm down. Rex tells Marlena that they have to help her. Marlena tells Roman that she understands that Cassie needs a firmer hand but asks if there isn’t something else they can do to help her. Marlena adds that given Cassie’s childhood, she panics when Cassie is confined so jail is not going to have the healthy result that Roman is hoping for for Cassie. Roman tells Marlena to phone Mickey again and tell him to get down here. Marlena goes to make the phone call as Rex asks Roman to tell him what Cassie is charged with. Roman says Cassie has been charged with prostitution and Mimi is shocked. Marlena asks for Mickey and tells the secretary that it is an emergency. Mickey isn’t in so Marlena says she’ll leave a message in which she tells Mickey that Cassie has been arrested, and it is a long story but Mickey needs to call her as soon as he gets the message. Marlena thanks Mickey and hangs up. She turns to notice that everyone is watching her and explains that she left a message. The officer brings Cassie back into the room and Cassie runs to Rex. Rex complains to Roman that he treated her like a criminal. Roman tells the officer that Cassie can stay here until night court but the officer says that there is no night court tonight because the judge is out sick. Marlena asks what that means and Roman says it isn’t good. Cassie tells Rex that he has to get her out of here and Rex asks if they can have some time alone. Roman allows them to use Abe’s office and tells the officer to stay on the door. Rex and Cassie go into Abe’s office and Mimi offers to get some coffee for Marlena. Marlena accepts and Mimi leaves. Roman asks Marlena if she is okay. Roman tells Marlena that he didn’t mean to make Marlena feel but Marlena interrupts and says she knows and she feels bad for Cassie because she wants to help but doesn’t know how.

Rex tells Cassie that they are going to get her out of here because “Mom” called Mickey Horton. Cassie says she wouldn’t still be here if it weren’t for Roman Brady. Rex says there is something Cassie needs to know. Cassie asks if it is about the charges against her. Rex says it is bad but Cassie says nothing can be as bad as being arrested and strip searched and asks Rex to tell her.

Rex tells Cassie that he wishes she never had to find out. Cassie tells Rex that he scares her and asks what it is. Rex tells Cassie that he has been doing some work on their DNA. Cassie asks why and Rex says that he wanted to unlock the code but in doing that he also found out that Tony and Marlena are not their parents. Cassie doesn’t understand. Rex says he doesn’t know who their mother is but the tests conclusively prove that Roman Brady is their biological father. Cassie is shocked and shakes her head no.

Roman tells Marlena that he will talk to the arresting officer and see if there aren’t any mitigating circumstances. Marlena thanks him and tells Roman that Cassie has had so little self experience that she may have done or said something without realizing what the consequences might be. Roman says he will try but can’t promise anything. Marlena thanks him for trying. Roman says he is sorry she has to go through this and asks if Marlena went back to the hospital tonight. Marlena says she did and Sami was asleep when she got there. Marlena adds that then Sami woke up and wanted so badly to talk and she was too tired to write but Marlena wants so badly to know what is going on in Sami’s head. Roman says that a day ago they weren’t even sure Sami would survive and now they know she will so whatever else is in front of her, they’ll see her through it. Marlena says she wonders if losing Brandon was more than Sami could bear because she had her reason for living wrapped up in the man she loved. Roman says that Sami has Will, that he has always been reason for Sami to keep fighting no matter what went wrong in her life. Marlena says it is different this time because she was watching her as she slept and she seemed so small, so young and Marlena would give anything to get back the time she lost with Sami and Cassie. Marlena turns toward Abe’s office and they watch Rex comforting Cassie. Marlena apologizes to Roman telling him that he has enough to worry about, that he doesn’t need to worry about Cassie too for what she is going through has nothing to do with him, nothing at all.

Henderson is cleaning up glasses left on a table as Victor comes up to him. Victor says Nicole is not upstairs or out on the terrace. Henderson says he checked the garage and her car was still there. Victor says that Nicole must still be on the grounds somewhere, probably passed out drunk. Henderson asks if he should send Niko to look for Nicole. Victor says no, he’ll handle Nicole himself.

Brady asks Nicole if she wants a future without Victor. Nicole says that is not what she said. Brady starts to tell Nicole that if she is happier out here with the horses than inside with her own husband but Nicole interrupts to say that Brady can’t understand that she wants to be more than legalized arm candy. Brady asks what she is talking about. Nicole says she is talking about being a victim like her mother. Nicole adds that she decided early on that she wasn’t going to let that happen to her. Brady says that Nicole claims that Victor makes her feel like a victim and tells her to tell him what has been going on. Nicole starts to cry hysterically and tells Brady that she can’t tell him, she can’t tell anyone. Brady grabs Nicole and makes her face him as he tells her that she has to deal with this or it will destroy her.

Belle and Shawn are still in the Kiriakis pool. Shawn asks Belle if she wants him to get out of this pool naked. Belle says that if Shawn is nice as she pulls her arm out of the water to unveil that she’s holding Shawn’s boxers, he won’t have to. Shawn tells Belle to give him his boxers as Belle puts her arm back underwater. Shawn grabs Belle around the waist and tells her that she is going under.

Maya and Philip are watching Belle and Shawn from inside the mansion. Maya says that the evening is finally starting to heat up and suggests that they join them. Philip says he doesn’t think so. Maya points out the look on Philip’s face. Philip asks what look she means. Maya says it’s the same look he had on Love Is Blind, that there’s chemistry between Philip and Belle and tells Philip to admit it. Philip says that Belle is in love with Shawn. Maya says they can change that. Philip says no way but Maya says to be honest with each other. Maya says that she wants Shawn and Philip wants Belle, with a little teamwork they could both win. Maya asks Philip what he thinks, do they help each other or not.

Nicole pulls away and asks Brady why she would confide in him because he is the one that ripped off her job at Titan. Brady tells Nicole to stop avoiding him. Nicole continues to say that he moved into her home without even giving her a nod. Brady asks Nicole what she is so afraid of. Nicole says she is afraid of ending up like her mother. Brady says she won’t with the way she comes out fighting and she knows he’s right. Nicole says she used to believe that. Brady says it is still true. Nicole says all she has to do is take back control. Brady says it is okay to ask for help once in a while. Nicole says she has always been better on her own. Brady says he is there if she changes her mind. Nicole asks why she would turn to him because he hates her. Brady says they might as well call a truce since they are living under the same roof and extends his hand. Nicole is reluctant to take his hand so Brady says he doesn’t bite. Nicole takes his hand as Brady adds, much. Nicole pulls her hand away as Brady laughs and says gotcha. Nicole laughs and tells Brady that he could live to regret this. Brady says he’ll take the risk. Victor walks up behind them and asks Nicole what the hell she thinks she’s doing. Nicole and Brady turn to look at Victor.

Victor asks Nicole why she is bothering Brady and that she should have been at the house saying goodnight to the guests. Nicole asks if the guests missed her. Victor tells Nicole that her place is with him. Nicole says that she and Brady had some things to work out and tries to lead Victor back to the house as she says they should go back and she promises to make nice with the stragglers. Victor tells her that the party is over and asks Brady is Nicole has been annoying him. Brady says not at all and they are actually on the same page now about Brady moving in and asks Nicole if that is right. Nicole says that she thinks it’ll work. Victor says of course it will work, they are family. Victor tells Nicole to do something about her appearance. Nicole says she had a little accident. Victor asks what now and Brady tells him that they were at the pool and Nicole fell in. Victor accuses Nicole of drinking again and Nicole thanks him for his concern. Victor says he is concerned that she put herself in jeopardy, ruined a designer gown and didn’t have enough sense to go inside and get into dry clothes. Nicole says it is a hot night and the cold felt good. Victor says the dress is ruined and Nicole says cest la vie. Victor tells Nicole that she is up to something and asks what it is and to start with what Nicole is doing down here alone with Brady.

Belle is holding Shawn’s boxers in the air as she tells Shawn she gives up. Shawn says Belle asked for it and grabs Belle. Belle drops the boxers when Shawn grabs her so she reaches for them. Shawn says Belle isn’t getting them back.

Philip tells Maya that he is going to pretend he didn’t hear her suggestion. Maya says that it is his loss. Philip says that Belle and Shawn are his closest friends. Maya says they should join his good buddies and beat the heat as she goes outside. Philip says talk about trouble and follows her out. Maya asks Belle and Shawn if this is a private party or can anyone join. Belle says they thought everyone had gone. Shawn asks Maya and Philip how long they have been standing there as he grabs his boxers. Maya says not long and asks if there is a problem. Shawn puts on his boxers and says not now. Maya tells Philip to lose the uniform and asks Shawn how the water is. Shawn says the water is hotter than she thinks.

Cassie is upset and says she can’t believe her own father is threatening to put her in jail and asks how screwed up is that. Roman comes in and says time is up. Rex asks if she can leave now. Roman says no, Cassie will be going downstairs. Cassie asks Roman if he means downstairs to jail. Rex asks about bail but Roman says he can’t post bail until after arraignment. Rex says Roman said that there wasn’t any court tonight. Roman says that was true but Cassie will have to spend the night in lockup. Cassie says she can’t as the officer leads Cassie away. Cassie cries out to Rex to not let them do this to her because she didn’t do anything. Rex tells the officer that she can’t be locked up as he follows her out of Abe’s office. Marlena asks Roman if he can do anything. Roman says it is out of his hands and he’s sorry. Cassie asks Rex not to leave her as the officer leads her out of the room. Rex tells Roman that he is killing her. Roman tells Rex that he has his word that nothing is going to happen to Cassie. Rex says the hell it’s not and to himself says he is so sorry to Cassie.

Nicole tells Victor to stop looking for ulterior motives in everything she does; she came down to the stables to introduce Brady to Rusty. Victor confirms that Nicole brought Brady down to see her horse. Brady says they both love to ride. Victor says it has become an obsession with Nicole. Brady says she was just telling him that. Nicole asks when they are going back to the house. Victor tells Nicole to go ahead; he wants to talk to Brady. Nicole is reluctant to leave but Brady says goodnight to Nicole. Nicole tells Brady not to let Victor push him around. Nicole leaves. Victor tells Brady that Nicole is drunk. Brady says Nicole is not drunk tonight. Victor says Nicole is always drunk, she doesn’t know what she’s saying and by morning she can’t even remember. Brady says Nicole will remember tonight. Victor moves over to lean against the stall that Rolf’s body is in. Victor asks Brady what really went on. Brady says that Nicole was upset but he never found out why. Victor says he can always tell when there is something; Brady says he is sure that Nicole will tell Victor. Victor tells Brady they should get out of there, he could use a nightcap. Brady and Victor leave. Nicole watches them leave and sneaks back into the barn and peeks into the stall with Rolf’s body.

Rex and Mimi return to Rex’s room. Rex says damn Roman Brady and asks how he could do that to Cassie. Mimi says Roman did move kind of fast. Rex says Cassie is Roman’s own daughter but Mimi points out that Roman doesn’t know that. Rex says Roman is never going to find out because once he gets Cassie out of jail; he is never going to let Roman near Cassie again. Mimi tells him not to focus on that, just concentrate on getting Cassie out of jail. Rex tells Mimi that Cassie can’t spend the night there; she’s terrified of being locked up. Mimi hugs Rex.

Cassie is locked in her jail cell. She lies on the cot and gets under the covers. Cassie is crying as she recalls being locked in with Rex as kids. Cassie comes back from the flashback and pulls the blanket over her head.

Maya asks Philip if he is coming in. Philip says he hates to break this up but he has to be going and get back to the base. Belle says they were just getting out too and Shawn adds that they have to work early in the morning. Maya says another time and it was nice to meet Della but Belle corrects Maya that her name is Belle. Maya says my mistake and walks off.
