Lucas assures his mother that Roman loves her. He's just preoccupied with the serial killer running around. Kate wants a future with him so badly and hopes that he feels the same.

She does not say it back.

Hope stops by Belle's loft to see if Shawn is there. Belle informs her that he went Christmas shopping. She offers Hope some coffee. Hope sits down and reads a Christmas card that Belle wrote for Shawn. It says: " I designed these especially for you, Shawn. I can't wait to see you wear them, or not wear them, to bed. Love Belle." Hope is disturbed by this, and believes Shawn and Belle have had sex. Belle tells Hope that she can't wait until she has a baby to go Christmas shopping for, and Hope spits out her coffee, asking if Belle is pregnant.

Roman shows up at Lucas' apartment. He wants to tell Lucas that he is going to propose to Kate tonight. Sami storms in and says she'd rather see Roman dead than married to Kate.
