At the castle:
Marlena and Roman remain chained together at the ankles. Marlena is upset and slams her hands on the television. She is angry that Tony gives them a glimpse of their families, but then shuts it off. Roman tells her that shes playing into Tonys hands and letting it get to her. Roman tries to convince her what Tony is letting them see is highly selective and could be out of context.
Marlena comments that the closeness of John and Kate that they saw didnt look out of context. Roman reminds her that they are getting closer too. They both flashback to their earlier kiss. Roman says that they have to talk about it and Marlena agrees.
In Johns bedroom at the penthouse:
John lies in bed, writhing in pain. He flashes back to earlier in the day when Kate took the pain killers from him. Back to reality, John sites up and shouts out, scratching at his bare skin. Kate rushes in. John jumps up from the bed and hugs her. She sees that hes burning up with fever and she wants to get a washcloth to cool him done. However, John holds onto her and tells her twice that hes not going to make it.
At the loft:
Shawn, Belle and Philip are in the loft of the newlyweds. Shawn demands that Belle tell them who she has feelings for, him or Philip. Then Shawn tells her that he already knows the answer, that she married the wrong guy. Philip tells Shawn to shut up. Meanwhile, Belle flashes back to different moments of intimacy with Shawn and Philip.
Just as Belle opens her mouth, Jan enters and cuts in, and Shawn and Jan bicker over what Belle feels (cant the girl speak up for herself and end this seemingly endless night?). Rex comes in and chimes in as well, saying that Belle made her statement at the church through her vows.
Philip wants to talk to Belle alone (no wonder, everyone is cutting her off). Jan asks if its about the phone call Philip received. Philip says that hes shipping out even sooner than he thought, and that this is their last night (good thing its 400 hours long).
In the boys loft:
Mimi and Sami verbally go at it. Sami threatens Mimi that she should watch her step around her. Mimi is genuinely confused and doesnt think that Sami has anything with which to threaten her. Sami flashes back to hearing Jan and Mimi talk on the roof about Mimis abortion. Just as Sami says that her threat isnt idle, Rex comes in and asks to know whats going on with the two of them. Then, Lucas comes in and asks the same thing.
In the newlyweds loft:
Belle cant believe that Philip is leaving, and she doesnt want him to leave. She flashes to an image of Philip in combat. Shawn, however, says that the sooner he goes, the happier everyone will be. Belle scolds Shawn for saying such a thing and talks about Philip risking his life for his country. Jan takes this as a cue to leave and she tries to get Shawn to leave with her. Shawn backtracks, trying to soften his comment by saying that he meant that everything is wrong right now and that Philip pressured Belle into marrying him. Shawn and Philip argue and Belle says she cant take this anymore.
Philip reminds everyone that this is still Belles and his wedding night, and that he wants everyone out of there to spend it with her. Jan again tries to get Shawn to leave, but Shawn again refuses without an answer to his question.
In the boys loft:
Lucas pulls Sami aside and demands to know what Sami is doing here. Sami explains that shes there to give Belle her wedding present and to apologize to her. Lucas says that he got her note explaining that, but he wants to know why shes arguing with Mimi and still holding the present.
Sami wants to know why Lucas is so suspicious of her, when shes trying to do something good.
Mimi starts to shout that Sami is only here to create trouble. Lucas wants to know what kind of trouble shes causing, and Mimi says that Sami blabbed to Philip about his wife being on the roof with Shawn. Sami defends why she did it and blames Mimi for trying to ruin Philip and Belles marriage. Its Mimis turn to defend her actions, as she explains that she was trying to help her friends sort out their feelings.
Sami and Mimi go at it, with both of them calling the other a liar. Sami lets slip a little of her newfound secret by saying that if Rex knew what she did, and Mimi counters saying that Sami doesnt know anything. Rex tells Sami to tell him what it is that she knows.
Back at the castle:
Roman and Marlena talk about what their kiss signified. Marlena thinks it happened because they were married once and where in desperate need of comfort.
They talk about how Marlena is worried about Belle and John and that they may never get back to Salem. Roman says that he wants to remain optimistic, but that if they dont, then theyre all they have for the rest of the days of their lives (sorry, couldnt resist).
Marlena laments that John and Kate think that they are dead. She brings up the fact that she and Roman know that John and Kate arent dead, and that they are married to them and in love with them. She says that shes not going to give up on them. Roman says that he isnt either.
Marlena believes that if John and Kate have turned to each to other, that its only because they are going through the same pain and grief. Roman worries that they may fall in love by the time they get back to Salem. Marlena doesnt want to think about that. Roman presses on, saying that John and Kates feelings for each other may not disappear when he and Marlena get back to Salem.
Back in Johns room at the penthouse:
John and Kate are still hugging, as John groans from the pain killer withdrawal. Kate tries to soothe him and tell him that hes going to make it, while John tells her how awful the pain is. He tells her that he feels like he has spiders crawling under his skin trying to eat their way out. Kate sits John down on the bed and tries to coax him into accepting that the pain is necessary. John pleads with Kate to give him back some of the pain killers, and Kate finally agrees and gets up and goes into Johns bathroom. John smiles at the thought of getting more pain killers.
Back in the boys apartment at the loft:
Mimi tells Sami to spit out her crazy lie. Sami warns Mimi shes going to regret talking to her like that. Lucas pulls Sami aside and gives her the I thought you were going to be good from now on speech. Sami says that shes trying, and that its Mimi who is mistreating her. Lucas scolds her and brings up how Sami was going to turn in John for the drug theft without any evidence.
When Rex comes over and tells Sami to tell her what she know, Sami claims theres nothing to tell. Lucas and Sami leave, with Belles present, but not before Sami threatens Mimi again.
Back at the Newlyweds loft:
Shawn and Philip are still talking, as Shawn demands that Belle give an answer and Philip demands that Shawn shut up so that Belle can give her answer (now, if they both would shut up, Belle can answer and maybe this night can finally be over). (Not able to grasp that concept,) Shawn tells Belle that theyre waiting for a response and Philip tells Shawn to shut up so that Belle can give her response.
Finally, Belle says that shes in love with Philip (and somewhere, hallelujah, a rooster must be crowing, signaling an end to this endless night). Shawn doesnt accept the answer, as he starts to bad mouth Philip. Belle and he argue about Philip and his prior intentions.
Belle tells Shawn that she called him from the church because she needed closure and she recites a laundry list of adjectives about how wonderful Philip is. Belle says that, for the last time (please, God, let that be true - at least for tonight), she is in love with Philip. Philip tells Shawn that he finally has his answer and he kisses Belle. Philip tells everyone to leave as he takes Belle by the hand and they go upstairs.
Back at Johns bedroom in the penthouse:
John is lying in bed again, clutching at the sheets and scratching his arms, when Kate returns with a bottle of sleeping pills. John is upset that Kate has brought his sleeping pills instead of his pain killers. Kate refuses to give him his pain killers, because then hell be letting the addiction win. Disappointed and annoyed, John takes the sleeping pills. Still in pain, he shivers, saying that he is so cold. Kate pulls up the blanket and then takes off her robe and crawls into bed, hugging John and telling him to get close to her.
At the castle:
The television turns on, and Roman and Marlena see that John and Kate are in bed together.
At the Newlyweds loft:
As romantic music plays in the background, Philip is standing behind Belle with his arms wrapped around her as they look out the window. They talk about Shawn not going to bother them anymore. Philip wants to know why Belle met Shawn on the roof that night. Belle starts to cry, saying that its not about Shawn, its about Philip.
In the boys loft:
Shawn is angry, saying that he would have bet his life that Belle wouldnt have said that she loved Philip. Rex tells Shawn that hes in denial. Shawn believes that Belle is caught up in some patriotic duty, because Philip is shipping out to combat. Rex wants Shawn to accept that Philip and Belle are married. Rex goes to Jan and tells her to do something with Shawn. Shawn pleads with Mimi to help him to arrange to talk to Belle again that night (Nooooooo!!!!!!! I just want this night to end - talk to her tomorrow.).
At Samis apartment:
Lucas and Sami arrive home. Sami tells Lucas that she knows that Mimi had an abortion, and never told Rex about it or the pregnancy. Lucas is surprised at the information and is disbelieving, but Sami explains how she overheard Mimi and Jan talking about it. Sami wants to go back to Rex and tell him. Sami talks about how good she is being. Lucas wants to know why Sami gets pleasure from turning peoples lives upside down.
Sami talks about the way people have mistreated her. She picks up the telephone to call Rex to tell him about Mimis abortion.
Back at the Castle:
Marlena and Roman continue to watch the feed from Johns bedroom. Roman comments that there is no sound anymore. Marlena says that she cant watch anymore. Roman shouts out to Tony, calling him a son of a bitch and asking him why he is torturing them like this.
John and Kate are lying in bed, in each others arms, as Kate is stroking Johns face. John comments that if someone were to walk in on, they would get the wrong idea. Kate is happy to see that John is able to make a joke. At Kates urging, John starts to drift off to sleep.
Back at the castle, the sound on the t.v. is restored, as Roman and Marlena hear John thanking her for giving her what he thought that he could only get from Marlena. Kate kisses him on the neck and tells him to get some sleep and that theyll talk tomorrow. Meanwhile, back at the castle, Marlena looks devastated, as though shes ready to cry and Roman looks angry, as though hes ready to punch a hole in the wall.
Later, in his sleep, John talks in sleep, saying, I love you, Doc and begging her not to leave him. Kate whispers that shes afraid that wont happen because Marlena, and Roman, are gone.
Back at the castle:
Marlena is grateful that John is alive and that Belle and Brady are okay. She remains upset, though, and brings up her conversation with John on the raft, where she told him that if anything happened to her, that he should move on with Kate. Marlena also tells Roman that John gave his blessing to Roman and Marlena, if the should find themselves in a situation where they were never coming home.
Roman swears to protect Marlena and keep her safe and that he would understand if John and Kate cant let go of their feelings for each other, because hes never been able to completely let go of his feelings for her. Marlena tells Roman that she never really gotten over her feelings for him, either.
Roman wants Marlena to get some rest and he leads her over to the bed. She lies down and Roman pulls a blanket over her. He tells her that hell always be there for her and strokes her arm. She rolls over to face up to him and they kiss.
At the Newlyweds Loft:
Philip and Belle talk about how this is their last night together, before Philip ships out. They kiss and lay down on the bed and begin to make love.
At the boys loft:
Mimi turns down Shawns request to arrange another meeting between him and Belle. Shawn goes over to the kitchen area, where he listens to the romantic music coming from Belle and Philips room while drinking a beer. Jan looks on, thinking to herself that itll just be a matter of time until Shawn accepts that Belle is married. Rex tells Mimi that he hopes shes learned her lesson about butting into other peoples business and he makes her promise that shell never lie to him about anything else again.
Sami goes on about her list of enemies: John and his attacking her at the hospital, Kate trying to break them up, and Mimi and her threats. They talk about Samis penchant for revenge. Lucas warns her that if she doesnt let go of her need for revenge, that she will never have a good life.
Sami tells Lucas that he wins, and that she wont do anything to get revenge, as long as her enemies dont mess with her, first.
Back at Johns bedroom:
John is asleep in the bed and Kate is out of bed, as the telephone rings. Kate answers it and its Eugenia. They talk about Philip and Belle and Bo and Billie, and then Kate says that all she has left to do is break up Sami and Lucass wedding.
Back at Samis apartment:
Sami again mentions that if Mimi, Kate of John messes with her happiness, that she wont rest until theyve been destroyed. The screen splits, to show Sami and Kate.
