Bart marvels at how Tony is using Sami to lure the rescuers into his trap, how Sami is Tonys secret weapon and how Stan/Sami has got a secret weapon already. Bart wants to know who the second secret weapon is but Tony warns that it will all come out in due time. Tony jokes about how exciting the show will be and likens Sami harpooning Shawn to Moby Dick. Tony tunes the radio and he and Bart listen in on Rex and Bradys conversation.
Brady and Rex lie on their backs in a foxhole as explosions go off around them. Rex is amazed that Shawn caught Stan and asks if they should bring in Lucas now.

Brady agrees and they count down before taking off.
Shawn demands proof from Stan that he was truly with Philip. Stan hands Shawn Philips dog tags. Shawn tells Stan that they will now trust him but Brady comes up, closely followed by Rex, and negates that.
Mickey urges Lexie to let him talk to Jan. Bonnie adds that Jan is a liar and if Mickey were given a couple minutes with Jan, hed bust her story like a rotten walnut. Mimi doesnt understand whats going on. Belle asks Lexie if Jan is refusing to talk. Lexie explains that Jan has now lapsed into another coma. Belle notes that Jan just woke up from a coma and Lexie explains that Jans latest MRI shows that she has now developed a clot that is reducing the blood flow to her brain. Mimi suggests operating on Jan. Lexie explains that the clot is inoperable and can only be treated with drugs in hopes of shrinking it. Mimi doesnt think that Lexie expects the clot to dissolve. Lexie claims it could happen but on the other hand, its also possible that Jan may never regain consciousness. Mimi begins to feel discouraged and Bonnie consoles her. Mickey assures Mimi that if the victim of an alleged crime makes an incriminating statement that cant be cross-examined by a defense counsel that will raise serious legal questions. Tek and Abe listen in on Mickeys conversation. Mickey adds that he has Maggie looking up precedents now. Bonnie continues to console Mimi until she realizes that Mickey said Maggie was doing the research.

Abe asks to talk to Tek and wants to know why Tek has yet to make an arrest. Tek looks over at Belle and Bonnie comforting Mimi. Tek tells Abe that he is still evaluating the evidence. Abe folds his arms and tells Tek that that was the wrong answer.
Bart is amazed at how Brady is smart enough not to trust Stan. Bart gloats about how none of them know that Sami is there to lure them into being Philips cellmates instead of rescuers. Tony yells at Bart to be quiet so he can hear how Sami gets out of the situation.
Stan yells that he is not working with the enemy. Shawn cautions Stan to keep his voice down and then shows Brady Philips dog tags. Stan claims that he got the dog tags because he grabbed them from a table as he was escaping. Brady demands to know how to be sure that having these dog tags isnt a way of saying that Philip is already dead and to know why Stan didnt give them the dog tags earlier.
Bart fears that Samis luck may have just run out.

John defends his relationship with Kate but Marlena keeps interjecting to say that she understands and doesnt blame them. John thanks her and hugs her as he professes his love for her. Marlena gasps at the feeling of being in Johns arms again and begins to cry. John insists that if he knew she was alive, he would never have been with Kate and Marlena understands. John tells Marlena about how glad he is that Roman was there with Marlena during their ordeal and while she and Roman might have been tempted for comfort, they would never have betrayed their vows because they knew he and Kate were still alive. Marlena starts to tell John about sleeping with Roman but John interrupts her, only wanting to hold Marlena in his arms and never let go. Marlena persists, not wanting there to be any secrets between them. John thinks that Marlena is talking about his secrets and decides that he cant avoid telling her the truth tonight. Marlena asks what John is talking about and John declares that he is a drug addict. Marlena shakes her head in disbelief.
Abe wants to know why Tek is waiting to make an arrest. Tek insists that he is still working on it. Abe is angry that Tek does not have someone locked up by now and accuses him of not doing his job. Abe claims that he sees now that recommending Tek for detective was a mistake. Lexie walks up and asks Abe how he can talk to Tek like that when Tek is only trying to do his job. Abe wants to know why Lexie is defending Tek and Lexie explains that Tek knows the facts in this case whereas Abe doesnt. Abe asks if Tek shared those facts with Lexie and then demands to know what else she and Tek have shared while hes been gone as well as what they have been doing behind his back since hes been home. Lexie and Tek exchange glances.
Stan tells Brady, Shawn, and Rex that when he split, Philip was alive but warns that the guards were probably not happy to see that he escaped. Rex recalls that Stan claims to have paid off the guards. Stan covers by claiming that the guards wont admit that they let him go and are probably taking it out on Philip right now.
Tony smiles as he turns down the radio and gloats to Bart about how he was right about Samis abilities. They continue to listen.

Lexie tells Abe that he should be thanking Tek for being there to do all the things he should have been doing because he wasnt there. Abe insists that hes here now and especially since he cant make love to Lexie as her husband, he has a right to know what is going on. Lexie insists that nothing is going on, unable to understand why Abe wont believe that. Abe says that he knows that Lexie is a beautiful sensitive woman with needs that now cant be filled by him and then accuses Lexie of turning to some other doctor in the hospital if not Tek.

Tony vaguely tells Bart that he has plans for the guys that Sami isnt aware of, at least not yet.
Kate moves a tissue box over to cover Johns half of the picture on her nightstand as she apologizes to Roman for ruining his homecoming. Roman tells Kate that she isnt ruining anything; in fact it is his fault because he is rushing her after receiving such a shock in learning that they are all alive.
