Abe is sitting on a bed in one of the hospital rooms having his hand bandaged up by a doctor. Abe complains that despite what Lexie thinks, he wants to be able to do things on his own. The doctor assures Abe that he is still adjusting to being blind. The doctor offers to page Lexie but Abe refuses, not wanting to bother Lexie while shes working. Lexie is standing in the doorway and having heard Abes last comment lets her presence be known to him by assuring that it isnt a bother. Lexie complains to Abe that she had to hear that he was here from an intern instead of from him. Abe brushes off the extent of his injury as nothing. Lexie asks what happened and Abe explains that he burned his hand on the stove and then called Celeste to look after Theo before calling a patrol car to drive him to the hospital. Lexie grabs for Abes hand, wanting to take a look but Abe jerks his hand away, not wanting her to see. Abe uses his hands to feel around the room and locate his coat. Lexie asks Abe to stop trying to cook for himself until he is better acclimated and Abe is furious at how long it is taking to become acclimated. Lexie tries to plead her case by pointing out that Abe is not only putting himself in danger but also putting Theo in danger, which Abe takes offense at the mere thought that he could be intentionally hurting Theo. Lexie points out that Abe didnt intend to burn his hand either. Abe grows frustrated as he asks if he has to call for Lexie every time he wants something as simple as a cup of tea. When Lexie suggests doing that, Abe mentions having heard about the crash and couldnt fathom dragging Lexie away from Abbys accident just to make him some tea. Lexie leads Abe out of the room as Abe asks about Abbys condition. Lexie assures him that Abby will be okay. Lexie straightens Abes coat as she rattles on about Jennifer still being in mourning for Jack but suddenly stops and gasps at what she sees across the room. Abe desperately asks Lexie to explain what she is seeing and Lexie tells Abe that Jennifer is kissing someone. Abe points out that Jennifer is entitled to move on. Lexie is ecstatic as she realizes that the man Jennifer is kissing is Jack. Abe cant believe it because as far as he knows, Jack died on the island. Jack and Jennifer walk up to Lexie and Abe as Jack jokes about how reports of his death have been greatly exaggerated. Abe is shocked and questions how Jack could still be alive. Jennifer empathizes with Lexie about how it felt to have Abe come back to her. Jack quips about there werent anything that could keep them from the women they love and kisses Jennifer. Lexie happily watches Jack and Jennifer but then notices Abes sad expression.
Bonnie rushes up to where Mimi and Tek are talking. Tek warns Mimi that he now has Jans statement on tape and if Jan dies, the statement is more than enough for the DA to charge Mimi with murder one and ask for the death penalty. Mimi swears that she is innocent and Jan is lying. Bonnie insists that Mimi didnt try and kill Jan. Tek repeats that Jan is telling a different story. Bonnie refers to Jan as a tramp whos never told the truth in her life and remarks that she is going to kill her herself as she heads toward Jans room. Mimi rushes after Bonnie to stop her by blocking the doorway to Jans room. Bonnie yells through the open door at a sleeping Jan that she better tell the truth or shell pull the plug and strangle Jan with the cord. Mimi is shocked at Bonnies exclamation.
Nicole, dressed in scrubs, is reading a book called Surgical Procedures For Nurses. The color step-by-step pictures in the book gross out Nicole. Nicole is even more grossed out when she turns the page and skims the postoperative complications. Nicole slams the book shut as she declares that that is what shes going to make sure happens to Chloe.
Chloes clinic room:
Chloe is tossing and turning in her sleep. In Chloes dream, Brady brings Chloe a bouquet of flowers to her in the clinic. Chloe admires the beauty of the flowers and Brady hands them to her as he adds that the flowers are almost as beautiful as her. Brady exclaims that the surgery was a complete success and Chloes face is shown completely healed. Brady wishes that Chloe let him be with her during the surgeries so she wouldnt be alone but Chloe points out that she had Nancy. Brady tells Chloe that she should have told him the truth about being alive. Chloe explains that she didnt want Brady to see her until she was completely healed. Chloe asks Brady if she waited too long and now Brady is in love with Nicole.
Brady grabs Stan and pulls him close, demanding to know who he is. Sami thinks that she is Sami, referring to herself as Bradys wicked stepsister, here to get revenge on all three of them. Stan pushes Brady away. Shawn gets angry and grabs Stan as Sami continues to think about how shes also here to get revenge on John, Hope, Bo and Kate, hoping that they all rot in hell together. Shawn demands an answer to Bradys question and Stan sticks to his story about being a freelance reporter. Rex doesnt buy Stans story. Brady pulls Shawn and Rex aside as Shawn keeps his gun on Stan to confide in them that hes seen Stan before but while he cant place him, he knows that Stan is trouble. The three guys agree and Brady decides that he must frisk Stan to find out if he is armed. Sami begins to worry that if Brady frisks her, hell find out that hes a she.
Lucas watches the group through binoculars from his hiding spot. Lucas observes Stan turn his back on Brady, Rex, and Shawn long enough to re-affix his mustache. Lucas declares that he knows who Stan is.
Chloes clinic room:
Chloe continues to toss and turn as she dreams. Chloe tells Brady that she knows that Nicole loves Brady but has to know the truth about how Brady feels about Nicole. Chloe gulps when Brady admits that he does love Nicole.
Nicole uses an orange to practice incisions with the scalpel she stole. Nicole is spooked when a patient approaches her without saying anything. The patient complains about getting the same reaction a lot when people see her and her face is shown covered in scars. Nicole tries to make small talk by asking about upcoming facial reconstruction and the patient points out that she already had the surgery and it didnt work, leaving her to look like this for the rest of her life. Nicole sees the patient morph into a scarred Chloe and drops the scalpel onto the counter. Nicole thinks that she cant do this to Chloe, even if it is the only way to keep Brady.
Brady approaches Stan and starts to frisk him but Stan tries to push him away. Brady yells at Stan to shut up and put his hands in the air. Brady continues to frisk Stan and Stans gun falls out onto the sand. Brady picks it up and discovers that it is loaded. Brady demands to know how a reporter who just escaped captivity ends up with a loaded gun. Stan claims that he bought it after escaping to protect himself from the rebels but the guys dont buy his story. Stan wants the guys to trust that he can help them find Philip.
Lucas continues to watch them through binoculars. Lucas flashes back to when he met Stan on the pier and talked to him about their respective sons. Lucas pulls out his PDA and uses it to send a message to Brady before going back to watching them through binoculars.
Brady pulls out his PDA and reads the message. Brady tells Shawn and Rex to keep an eye on Stan and walks away. Shawn gets in Stans face and vows that they are going to find out the truth. Sami mentally scoffs that shes not afraid of the three stooges when Tony is in charge.
Brady joins Lucas and Lucas tells Brady that he met Stan once but doesnt know his name. Brady tells Lucas about Stans cover story as a reporter and Lucas doesnt buy it either. Lucas asks Brady to let him question Stan, guaranteeing to get the truth.
Mimi urges Bonnie to stop because she isnt helping. Tek threatens to arrest either of them if they threaten Jan again. Mimi makes Bonnie promise with her that theyll be good. Tek walks away. Bonnie wants to take advantage of being left alone to confront Jan for the truth but Mimi stops her. Bonnie insists that she is here to help and demands that Mimi get out of her way. Bonnie storms past Mimi and into Jans room. Mimi frantically looks around before following Bonnie into Jans room. Bonnie yells at Jan, who is still sleeping, to wake up. Mimi warns that theyll end up in jail but Bonnie ignores her, demanding Jan again to wake up. Jan wakes up and sees a blurry image of Bonnie and Mimi hovering over her. Jan starts to go back to sleep but Bonnie calls her attention back. Bonnie gets in Jans face and demands that Jan recant her bogus statement and Mimi begs Jan to tell Tek the truth. Bonnie yells at Jan that she knew it was an accident and Mimi reminds Jan that she slipped and hit her head. Bonnie threatens Jan with only being able to leave the hospital in a pine box if she doesnt recant. Jan declares that shell never recant and that Mimi is toast.
Jack gushes about how glad he is to see Jennifers face. Abe recalls how he memorized Lexie, Theo, and Brandons faces the moment he saw them again so hed never forget them. Jack claims he feels the same but Jennifer informs him that when Abe said that, he was talking about losing his eyesight. Lexie explains that Abes blindness is due to severe head trauma. Jack hopes that there is a treatment but Lexie insists that its permanent. Jack offers his condolences and asks if Abe is okay otherwise. Abe jokes about how hes now turned into a klutz and Jack jokes about how he can relate to that. Abe complains that the worst part is not being able to work and having to spend all day trying to negotiate his way around the house. Lexie assures him that itll only take time. Abe jokes about how Bo would love to return to the field and would gladly give Roman back Abes old job. Everyone is saddened for a moment as they recall that Caroline and Victor didnt make it home. Abe curses Tony and Jack assures Abe that Tony is dead. Abe isnt so sure because there is no body but Jack insists that after shooting Tony and seeing him fall through the floor during the explosion, there is no way that anyone could have survived. Jennifer asks Lexie to give Jack a complete physical. At first Jack objects but Lexie decides that a physical is a good idea and asks Jack to wait for her after rounds in the exam room. Jack suggests getting together later with Abe and reaches out his hand but then thinks better of it. Jack pats Abes shoulder instead before following Jennifer into the exam room. Abe complains that Jack came home fine while he came home blind and with complications that could ruin their marriage.
Jack and Jennifer are making out. Jennifer stops Jack because Lexie could walk in on them at any moment. Jack points out that Lexie wont be coming back until after rounds but Jennifer still fears that someone could walk in on them. Jack suggests that they go home for a little while and after seeing Abe and his condition, he wants to relish the fact that they can do anything they want and starts kissing along Jennifers neck. Jennifer suggests that they wait until they can bring Abby home and then visit the Horton cabin. Jack is surprised that Jennifer brought up the cabin and flashes back to being there with Madison. Jack has Jennifer sit down before telling her that he betrayed their marriage vows.
Jennifer wants to know which marriage vow Jack betrayed. Jack begins to tell Jennifer about his first return home from the castle. Jennifer starts to assure Jack that he already told her all this but Jack goes on to tell her about going to the cabin with Madison and sleeping with her.
Lexie tries to assure Abe that his complications have not and will not ruin their marriage but Abe declares that they no longer have a marriage since Abe is impotent. Tek had been walking toward them but suddenly stops short at Abes last comment. Only Lexie is able to tell that Tek is there.
Brady asks how Lucas knows Stan and Lucas tells Brady about running into him while he was talking to Will. Lucas is confident that something isnt right with Stan. Brady admits that he knows Stan from somewhere too. Lucas begs for a chance to confront Stan but Brady advises against it. Lucas persists but Brady points out that right now Stan thinks that there are only three of them and that they know nothing about him, wanting to use that to their advantage. Brady tells Lucas to stay low so Stan doesnt see him and heads back to Shawn and Rex. Lucas vows that if Brady doesnt find out what is not right with Stan, then he will.
Shawn is pushing Stan around. Brady walks up behind Stan and wants to know what is going on. Rex declares that Stan is definitely lying and Brady begins to frisk Stan from behind to try and see what else Stan has on him. An explosion hits and everyone is thrown about.
Abe starts to plead his side but Lexie interrupts to greet Tek by name so that Abe realizes that hes there. Tek explains that he is here investigating the Jan Spears case and inquires about Abes bandaged hand. Abe brushes off the questions and asks about Jans case. Tek tells Abe about getting Jans statement in which she named her attacker (without mentioning Mimi by name) but that the attacker is claiming it to all is an accident. Abe thinks that Mimi is only making excuses but Tek wants to wait and make sure before making an arrest. Abe yells at Tek not to waste money and time and if he still ran the department hed have Tek arrest the attacker and move on. Lexie stands up for Teks desire to continue pursuing the case and Abe is offended. Lexie claims she isnt taking Teks side against Abe but Abe questions whether something is going on between Tek and Lexie. Tek denies it and Lexie tries to calm Abe down. A nurse walks up and refers to Abe as Commander Carver as she tells him about needing him to sign insurance papers. Abe snaps that he is now Mr. Carver and Lexie tries to take Abes hand to lead him but Abe pulls back, insisting that he can do it himself. The nurse takes Abes arm and leads him away. Lexie fights back tears as she tries to assure Tek that Abe wasnt really angry with him, only angry because he cant work or be hands on father to Theo like she can. Tek points out to Lexie that blind people can live productive lives but Lexie isnt sure that Abe is ready yet, complaining that this is killing Abe. Tek notices how much of a toll its taking on Lexie too and Lexie sighs.
Jack paces the room, with his back to Jennifer. Jennifer cant believe that Jack slept with Madison. Jack starts to defend his actions by reiterating that he had dreamed of being with Jennifer for so long but Jennifer cant understand how Jack couldnt tell Madison was wearing a mask. Jack, now yelling, reminds Jennifer that the DiMeras have done this type of thing in the past by recalling the Hope/Gina switch and the John/Roman switch. Jack lowers his voice as he sees how much this is hurting Jennifer. Jennifer cant believe that Jack made love to Madison. Jack fights back his own tears as he apologizes and begs for Jennifers forgiveness.
Chloes clinic room:
Nicole sneaks into Chloes room and overhears Chloe say, in her sleep, that the only way to be with Brady is if her surgery is successful prompting Brady to spend the rest of his life with her and not Nicole. Nicoles expression shows signs of anger. Nicole imagines Brady cutting Chloes bandages and going back to her upon seeing that her face is completely healed. Nicoles fantasy includes walking in on them and being told by Brady that now that Chloe is back, they can no longer be together. Nicole vows not to let that happen. Chloe talks, in her sleep, about being with Brady forever. Nicole holds up the scalpel and decides that Chloe has given her no choice. Nicole starts walking toward Chloes bedside.
Shawn begins to come to and stand up as Rex crawls over and wakes Brady. Rex explains to Brady that someones missile must have gone off course from the fighting in the village next to them but Brady suggests that it could mean that someone knows that theyre there. Rex insists that it had to have been a fluke since there was only one. Shawn checks to make sure that Rex and Brady are okay as well before noting that Stan used the distraction to get away. Brady, Rex, and Shawn decide to split up to look for Stan.
Stan hides between two rocks as he wonders what he got himself into this time. Stan asks God not to let him die out here.
Another explosion is heard in the distance and Lucas notes that it landed too close to them. Lucas looks through his binoculars again and watches Stan duck behind another rock. Lucas decides to ignore Bradys order to wait and heads toward Stan.
Lexie admits to Tek that Abes blindness isnt easy but it will get better. Tek is still concerned about Lexie and Lexie insists that shes handling it because after all she has no choice. Tek offers his support but Lexie insists that shes fine. Tek persists and Lexie quickly uses her rounds as an excuse to leave.
Jennifer acknowledges that while she understands that Jack was a victim of Tony DiMera, no one wants to hear that their husband slept with someone else no matter the circumstances. Jennifer still cant understand how Jack couldnt tell the difference between her and Madison. Jack insists that it wasnt the same as he knew it to be with Jennifer but he chalked it up to having been gone so long. Jack begs Jennifer not to let it come between them and let Tony ruin their happiness. Jennifer declares that its too late.
Jans hospital room:
Frustrated, Mimi smacks Jans bed with her purse repeatedly. Bonnie grabs Mimi and escorts her out of Jans room so that Tek doesnt catch them.
Bonnie calms Mimi down by telling Mimi to trust her and assuring her that Mimi will have the future shes always dreamed of with Rex. Tek walks up to them and Bonnie over exaggerates telling Tek that he doesnt need to worry because they arent bothering Jan. Tek explains that he came back to check if Jan had anything she wanted to add to her statement incriminating Mimi.
Jans hospital room:
A nurse is writing in Jans chart as Tek enters Jans room and tells her that this is her chance to add anything else to her statement. Jan closes her eyes and Mimi, who is watching from the doorway with Bonnie, fears that Jan is dead. The nurse explains to Tek that Jan has only fallen back asleep but tells Tek that he must leave so Jan can rest. Tek shuts off his tape recorder and leaves the room.
Mimi and Bonnie rush away from Jans door when Tek turns toward the door. Tek asks Mimi if she is ready to confess yet but Mimi repeats her story of the accident. Tek tells Mimi that there is no one to corroborate her story and the eyewitness testimony fits Jans statement. Tek advises Mimi to cop a plea because if the jury hears Jans testimony, Mimi will be going to jail for a long time. Tek walks away. Mimi suggests making a deal but Bonnie points out that Mimi didnt do anything. Mimi is scared of what Tek said about no one believing her but Bonnie urges Mimi not to let Tek scare her. Mimi scoffs at Bonnies attempts to calm her, fearing that shes headed for death row if Jan dies. Bonnie tries to comfort Mimi by proclaiming that she is going to take out the big guns but it only makes Mimi groan.
Lexie is walking along looking through charts when she looks up and notices that Abe is sitting there. Lexie walks over and greets Abe, attempting to baby him as she asks if he is waiting for her to take him home. Abe angrily confirms the need. Lexie tells Abe that hell have to wait a while longer because she has paperwork and still has to examine Jack. Abe stands and gently pushes Lexie aside as he sarcastically declares that hell find his own way home so as not to disrupt her busy schedule. Abe starts to walk away but Lexie calls after him so he stops. Lexie urges Abe to be careful getting home and Abe angrily tells Lexie to try not to wake him when she gets home since there wont be any point to anyway. Abe turns to go and walks into the wall. Lexie gasps but Abe insists he is fine and feels his way around the corner, along the counter and down the hall as Lexie watches him go and begins to cry. Tek walks up to see if Lexie is okay. Lexie confides in Tek that she doesnt know how she and Abe will get through this and begins to sob as Tek pulls her into a hug.
Jack wants to know what Jennifer means by being too late. Jennifer tells Jack that it hurts knowing that Tony manipulated Jack into sleeping with another woman. Jack sighs and hangs his head. Jennifer assures Jack that what happened isnt his fault they can only blame Tony. Jack tells Jennifer that he missed her and their family so much. Jennifer tells Jack that she loves him for fighting so hard to come back to their family. Jack wonders if this means that Jennifer forgives him and Jennifer says that she does. They kiss.
The area is clouded with thick smoke. Lucas walks up to Rex, Shawn, and Brady and the three pounce on him because they think he is Stan. Lucas identifies himself and Brady and Rex apologize and let Lucas stand up. Lucas peers through the smoke in the direction that he saw Stan go but realizes that Stan is gone. Rex, Brady, and Lucas decide to leave Shawn behind in hopes that hell catch up to them and head off in the direction that Lucas last saw Stan.
Stan makes his way between rocks as he keeps looking back toward the direction he came from to see if anyone is following him. Shawn jumps on Stan from behind and holds his hand over Stans mouth. Shawn declares that its time to find out who Stan really is.
