Rex is anxious to go in to see Mimi as soon as Marlena is done but Roman cautions Rex not to get Mimis hopes up. Rex and Patrick are confident that the tapes prove Mimis innocence. Roman assures them that he isnt the one who needs convincing but the judge will want to know why this evidence is only being introduced now.

Roman cautions Rex that he is letting his emotions get the best of him and Rex agrees by pointing out that the woman he loves is in jail for a crime she didnt commit. Roman reminds Rex, in a raised voice, that Mimi confessed and Rex claims that people confess to crimes they didnt commit all the time because they get browbeaten. Roman assures Rex that Mimi was not browbeaten and tries to assure Rex that he understands that Rex loves Mimi. Rex agrees and says that Roman would do the same thing for the woman he loves.
Mimis jail cell:
Mimi apologizes again to Marlena and advises that John will understand the circumstances that led to Roman and Marlena sleeping together.

Mimi agrees, at Marlenas request, to keep the pregnancy a secret. Mimi empathizes with Marlena by recalling how she never expected to wind up pregnant either and then confirms that Marlena would never consider an abortion. Mimi concludes that she lost the love of her life because she decided not to have a baby and Marlena may lose the love of her life because she decided to have a baby. Mimi recalls that Marlena advised her to tell Rex the truth and confirms that Marlena will tell John the truth. Marlena is glad that she doesnt have to worry about finding the right moment to tell John today because he is still in Europe.

Jail visiting room:
Mickey is pacing the room as they continue to wait for the judges call. Rex thanks Patrick for his help. Patrick brushes off Rexs appreciation by pointing out that Mimi is his sister so he has the same desire to get Mimi out as Rex. Rex thinks that if people who think Patrick cant be trusted would watch how he is with his family, theyd realize that Patrick is a good guy. Patrick says he can blame his past partly on his family because the weakness for petty larceny and the occasional con game is passed down from mother to son. Patrick thinks that Bonnies scams are usually harmless and she only ends up hurting herself. Mickey speaks up to agree with Patrick because Bonnie would do anything for her children. Rex wishes he could understand why Mimi pleaded guilty. Patrick advises Rex to put the whole ordeal behind them once Mimi gets out. A female police officer comes in and tells Mickey that he has a phone call from Judge Fitzpatrick. Mickey glances at Rex and Patrick and then decides to take the call out at the officers station.

Belle tries to convince Shawn that their relationship is over. Shawn tells Belle that he loves her and will not accept this decision because it isnt right.

Marlena doesnt think that Sami really slept with Brandon and Roman brings up how Kate thinks that Sami did even though he agrees with Marlena. Roman rationalizes Kates behavior by pointing out that Lucas is her son but Marlena tells Roman that she doesnt like Kates attitude. Roman asks if it is because Kate cant get along with Sami but Marlena says it is because Kate hates Sami. Marlena warns that if Kate cant find a way to get along with Sami, then she and Kate will have to have this one out.

Marlena believes that Sami wanted Lucas and not Brandon and would not have willingly slept with Brandon on the eve of her wedding to Lucas. Roman reiterates Samis claim that Kate set her up. Marlena isnt sure that Sami isnt telling the truth about that. Marlena however doesnt believe Samis claim that Kate and John spent the time while she and Roman were gone, ganging up on Sami. Roman tells Marlena not to make excuses for John just like he cant make excuses for Kate. Roman proclaims that if he does find out that Kate set Sami up, then their marriage is over. Marlena is surprised that Roman would be that drastic. Roman tells Marlena that if Sami is telling the truth then they both have to stand by her and help Sami get her life back on track. Roman hopes that it wont call for Marlena to have to choose between Sami and John. Marlena bends over and grabs her stomach and Roman expresses his concern. Marlena excuses herself and runs out of the room to be sick in private.
