Cassie, Rex, and Mimi talk about where the polygraph test results could be. Rex is worried that someone would get suspicious about who the twins’ parents are. Rex declares that he can’t stand being the children of Roman Brady and Kate Roberts just as Philip walks up to confront them.

Jennifer is lying on the bed clutching Jack’s picture as she cries. She looks up when Caroline and Alice call her name. Jennifer tells them about Jack having come to see her. Alice and Caroline are worried about Jennifer not having gotten much sleep but Jennifer is worried that every time she goes to sleep, she dreams about Jack.
Hope explains that there is a police interrogation technique that involves drawing a picture of the killer while under hypnosis. Marlena agrees to try it, warning that if it becomes too much for her, they will stop. Marlena gives Maggie a pad and pencil and asks her to just draw a picture for them.

Shawn offers to spend the day with Belle by cooking her dinner and possibly seeing a movie. Belle agrees and waits for Shawn as he runs to grab a surprise for her. Belle notices a newspaper stand across from where she sat on a bench to wait for Shawn. She reads the headline about who could be the next victim of the serial killer.

Jack is at peace and doesn’t want to pursue this but Jennifer insists that she is his partner and has to pursue this for him as she begs him to tell her the name of the killer.
Jack refuses to tell Jennifer who killed him, explaining that he isn’t allowed to change the course of the future and if he did tell her, he may not be able to come back to her again.
