John returns to Roman, Marlena, and Kate to declare that he has bad news.
Belle assures Mimi that she isnt having second thoughts but is still worried about how Philip is going to take the news.

Brady tells Philip that while he doesnt agree with Philips decision, hes sure Victor would be proud and to be careful. Philip thanks Shawn for organizing the rescue mission and asks him to tell Belle that he loves her when he sees her and leaves.

Jack suggests adding to the celebration by opening up some champagne and heads into the kitchen.

Mimi quips that the best day of their lives really sucks. Mimi and Belle wrap their arms around each others backs and sigh as they put their heads together.
The lights continue to flicker. Rex rejoins Brady and Shawn after checking in with the marine command center and reports that Philip is getting ready to head back out. Shawn complains that Philips hero complex could end up breaking Belles heart. Lucas rejoins the group and defends Philip to Shawn. Brady wants to know where Lucas was and Lucas explains that he combed the bunker to look for Sami but couldnt find her. Lucas hopes that Sami isnt outside of the bunker for fear she could get herself killed.
Sami makes her way through the desert terrain as explosions go off around her. Sami feels that dying out here is better than having anyone find out that she was Stan. Another explosion hits close and Sami is knocked back.
John tells Kate that Philip has volunteered to go back into active combat. Kate begins to cry and Roman comforts her as Marlena heads over to hold John. Kate worries about Philip not making it home.
