Abby and Chelsea are putting the finishing touches on Jacks birthday cake. Abby thanks Chelsea for her help and notes how hard it must be to be decorating her dads birthday cake when she just lost her own parents. Chelsea notes how she used to help each parent decorate the other parents birthday cake. Jennifer rushes in and warns them to hurry because Jack is almost done putting the stuff away. Hope and Bo walk into the kitchen through the living room and Hope explains that they saw Jack outside and he told them to come right in. Hope asks why they arent camping and Jennifer explains that after they got halfway there, they heard that the weather report was forecasting rain for the entire week on Smith Island and with Jack Patrick having the sniffles; Jack didnt want to be out there in the rain so they came back home. Jennifer asks Hope and Bo about the homecoming party at Alices Bar and if they were excited to see everyone come home. Bo realizes that Jennifer hasnt heard the news about Philip and fills her in as Abby and Chelsea also listen as they finish with the cake. Bo and Hope also inform Jennifer that Philip was taken to a military hospital in Germany and that Belle, Kate, and John are headed there to be with him. Billie walks in and glaring at Hope, declares that that is good news because Philip needs to be surrounded by those who love him, especially his wife. Abby declares that the cake is finished but suggests putting it away because she assumes that they arent going to have a party given the recent news about Philip. Bo, Hope, and Billie insist that they are still going to celebrate Jacks birthday. Abby agrees that they are right and carries the cake toward the door to the living room. Jack bursts in from the living room side of the swinging door and bumps Abby. As a result, Abby drops the cake and it falls face down to the floor.
Bonnie and Max rush into Mimis loft and Bonnie calls out to Mimi but there is no answer. Bonnie spots the wine filled glasses and after making sure no one is looking, takes a sip. Bonnie rushes over to the open window leading out onto the fire escape and fears that Mimi isnt here because Mimi told Rex the truth, Rex left, and Mimi used the wine to drown her sorrows before throwing herself of the fire escape. Max whimpers in reply and Bonnie responds as if Max was telling her that it is her fault because she should have never encouraged Mimi to lie to Rex about the baby, which caused all the other problems to occur leading up to Mimi pleading guilty. Bonnie sighs and complains that she feels guilty. Patrick appears in the doorway and tells Bonnie that she should feel guilty.
Rex makes Mimi repeat her declaration that she is going to jail. Rex thinks that Mimi must be joking and looks around to try and find the hidden cameras, convinced he must be on a practical joke reality show.

Rex asks what Mimi could have done and Mimi tells Rex that shes done something really bad.

Marlena tells him that there is nothing to forgive for they are all under so much pressure here.
Belle tells Kate that she doesnt want to argue anymore but Kate explains that she didnt come back in to argue, she came back to admit that she should have never flown off the handle like that and only did so because she is upset about Philip and only wants him to get better.

John takes Kates hands and assures Kate that they will find Tony and when they do, hes going to let Kate kill Tony with her own bare hands. Belle drops her jacket on the aisle seat across from Kate and John and asks John if it is okay for her to make a quick call. John tells her that they still have a few minutes before take off and Belle pulls her cell phone out of her purse and steps off the plane. John thanks Kate for making a truce with Belle. Kate wishes that Belle would give Philip a chance to work things out and John agrees that he wants them to stay together too. Kate thinks that if her plan works to keep Shawn out of the way, Belle and Philip will stay together.
