Mickey is the one truly standing over her and asks if she is all right. Mimi asks if she is going to jail and Mickey vows not to let that happen.

The marines order them to drop their weapons, which they do. Rex notices that the marines are American and declares that they are Americans too.

Stami lets the marine know that he is a journalist. The marine asks if there is any other civilian out there.
Lucas watches the situation through his binoculars.
Brady insists to the marine that they are the only ones out here. The marine puts down his gun and refers to the rescuers as the Salem Squad who has come to rescue their friend. Brady wonders how the marine knew about their plan. The marine explains that ISA operatives tipped him off about their plan. Shawn begs the marine to let them go through with the plan. The marine insists that he is sending them back home to their mothers and if they really wanted to fight a war, they should have enlisted. The marine orders them to follow him. Sami worries that her cover will be blown and begins to regret choosing to work for Tony. Brady stops the Captain to declare that he should know the truth about Stami.
Tony stands by casually sipping coffee as Bart frantically sorts through papers, begging Tony to help him destroy their paper trail. Bart is convinced that Stami will start talking and incriminate them. Tony tells Bart to remain calm because the world thinks they are both dead and no one will believe anything Stami says. Tony is confident that he can still use Stami to accomplish his goals.
Bo defends his actions in the pit by reiterating that he hit his head and the poison gas made him hallucinate and think that Billie was Hope. Bo accuses Billie of taking advantage of the situation. Billie insists that she wasnt trying to break up Bo and Hopes marriage; her only thought was that they were going to die. Bo scoffs at Billies attempt to defend her behavior. Billie claims that she never made her feelings for him a secret and when she thought it was the end, she was scared and needed Bo. Billie reiterates that Bo being there touching her and kissing her only fed her need. Bo repeats that he was only doing that because he thought she was Hope. Billie proclaims that she wasnt thinking about coming between Bo and Hope or that Hope and Patrick would walk in and see them, only that she didnt want to die like she had lived her life, alone.
Hope has Belle sit down and asks her if Shawn mentioned anything about his location that could help the ISA find him. Belle fears that the Salem Squad is headed into more danger by the way Shawn spoke and blames herself. Hope tries to convince Belle that it isnt her fault. Belle blames herself for being the reason Shawn conceived this rescue mission and not being able to stop him in time but Hope points out that Shawn lied to them all. Belle brings up how Shawn dragged Rex and Lucas into his plan and how Kate blames her for that too. Hope encourages Belle not to think about that right now, rather focusing on praying to God to bring them all home safely.

The captain quips that John is a smart man but it looks like it doesnt run in the family. Rex points out to the captain that they already rescued the two contractors and with Stamis help, could rescue Philip too. Shawn is worried that if theyre held there too long, Philip might be moved before they can get to him. The captain asks Stami if he has an exact location or can identify who was holding him but Stami claims he can do neither.
Tony is listening via headphones to Stamis conversation with Captain Owens. Tony sees this as a test of Stamis character. Bart begins to worry that Stami wont be able to hold up to Captain Owens questioning pitting the DiMera organization against the US military. Tony doesnt understand why Bart is being so dramatic. Bart is worried that Stami will blab and send the marines knocking down their door for some serious shock and awe. Tony decides that Bart is right and wonders how to make sure that Stami doesnt expose them. Bart suggests, dead Samis tell no tales. Tony calls in his two enemy soldier henchmen, William and Charles. Bart begins to worry that Tony really is going to take his advice and kill Stami. Tony tells William and Charles to go undercover and infiltrate the US Marine Corps. Tony hands them marine armbands.
Mickey encourages Mimi to stay positive because she is innocent. Mimi is convinced that once Jans tape is played and Tek testifies that she fled the scene, lied, and her fake fingernail was found at the scene, she is going to look guilty.

Billie vows to keep her promise to Mrs. Benson feeling that since she may never have a daughter, at least she can help someone elses.
