Lockhart House:

Chelsea ignores Abby’s warnings and heads into the bathroom. Chelsea drops her towel and pulls the shower curtain back with a flourish. Instead of Patrick, she finds a very surprised Billie.

Deveraux House:

Patrick stops by to pick up the last of Billie’s things and makes small talk with Jennifer in the entryway. Jack comes downstairs and is angry that Patrick is in his house and alone with Jennifer. Jennifer refers to Patrick as a friend but Jack insists that Patrick was no friend except to Tony.

Frankie and Max pass by the front door on the way to their apartment. Frankie notices Patrick and Max teases him about having to compete for with Patrick for Jennifer’s affections. Frankie denies his desire for Jennifer.

Jack pokes Patrick in the chest as he orders him to get Billie’s things and get out. Jennifer steps in between them, and declares that she has an idea for getting Jack and Patrick to get along as well as celebrate Chelsea and Billie’s new start.


Philip asks to go to his physical therapy session alone and Belle agrees. Belle kisses Philip goodbye and he wheels away. Mimi rushes up to Belle and is shocked when Belle didn’t automatically guess that Mimi was at the jail because she was visiting Shawn. Belle defends her decision to stay with Philip. Mimi begs Belle to go visit Shawn.


The guard brings Lucas back to see Shawn and gives them five minutes to talk. Lucas can’t believe the bad deal that Shawn got after the reason he missed his court date and Shawn tells Lucas to talk to Kate about that.

Kate’s office:

Kate gives Judge Karen Fitzpatrick a generous donation for her re-election campaign. Kate defends the amount by pointing out that they have the same ethics when it comes to Shawn even though Kate is adamant that the contribution and Shawn’s arrest have nothing to do with each other. Kate is determined to give Philip the chance to have happiness with Belle.

Eugenia’s apartment:

Sami sneaks onto Eugenia’s fire escape and watches Eugenia through the window. Eugenia hears the noise Sami makes when she bumps against a potted plant and grabs a bat to check it out. Sami cowers against the wall in hopes of not being seen from the window.

Kate’s office:

Kate scoffs when Karen claims she can’t guarantee that Shawn will go to jail for life.

Eugenia’s apartment:

Eugenia throws open the window to the fire escape, armed and ready with the baseball bat but sees no one. Sami hangs from the bottom of the stairs leading up to the floor about Eugenia’s place. Sami barely holds on as Eugenia checks on her plants before closing the window. Sami drops down with a loud clang and Eugenia decides, this time, to simply lock the window. Sami now wonders how she will be able to get into the apartment.


Mimi continues to beg Belle to see Shawn. Belle sticks to her decision but Mimi persists. Belle steps away to lean against the counter in pain and tells Mimi that she might have an ulcer. Belle becomes angry when Mimi suggests that it is her body’s way of telling her she made the wrong decision. Mimi asks Belle to at least be Shawn’s friend and go see him.

Philip returns and spots Mimi but not Belle, because as Mimi tells him, Belle went off to run errands. Philip tells a surprised Mimi that he doesn’t like the idea of Shawn being in jail and wants to use his connection as part of the Kiriakis family support to talk to Judge Fitzpatrick.


The guard brings Belle back to see Shawn.

Deveraux house:

Frankie denies that he wants Jennifer. Max uses a boxing analogy to urge Frankie to win the fight by taking the first punch and bounces around like a boxer in the ring. Max is surprised when Frankie actually hits him.

Jennifer tries to convince Jack that throwing Chelsea and Billie a housewarming party is a good idea. Frankie and Max walk in and Jennifer announces to them that it’s party time. All the men exchange angry glances.

Lockhart House:

Billie has now shut off the shower and both she and Chelsea wrap themselves in towels. Billie apologizes for being in the way when Chelsea wanted to take a shower. Chelsea defends throwing open the curtain by explaining that she thought Patrick was in there. Billie guesses that Chelsea planned to hop in with Patrick but Chelsea claims she didn’t hear the shower and thought she was alone. Billie doesn’t believe her and explains that she and Patrick decided to switch rooms so that Patrick, as the only guy in the house, could have his own bathroom. Chelsea and Billie try to appease the situation by joking about how Patrick wouldn’t want to come in to use the bathroom and have to deal with all of their clothes sitting around. Chelsea heads back into her bedroom, instantly changing her expression to a scowl. Billie does the same once alone.

Abby notes Chelsea’s expression. Chelsea explains that Billie switched rooms and Abby agrees that it makes sense. Chelsea is now convinced that Billie did it on purpose so that she can have Patrick for herself. Abby worries as Chelsea vows that Billie will get hurt if she keeps coming between her and Patrick.

Bonnie has bought a large above ground pool for the backyard and fights with the salesman over the phone about waiting to pay for it until she’s sure she likes it. Jennifer, Jack, Max, Frankie and Patrick arrive with tons of food and Jennifer introduces Bonnie to Frankie and Max. Chelsea and Abby join them, now in swimsuits as well as everyone else. Max offers them a drink and Billie walks up to insist that Abby and Chelsea will not be doing any underage drinking and hands them each a soda can. Patrick carries over a cooler and Chelsea rushes to help him as well as suggesting that he cool off by removing his shirt. Max pulls Abby aside to note how obvious it is that Chelsea has a crush on Patrick.

Jennifer shares her hopes with Frankie that this party will be relaxing for Jack. Frankie tries to calm Jennifer’s fears. Jack pulls Billie aside to criticize her for moving in with Patrick. Jack then decides that it’s okay as long as Patrick stays away from his family. Billie doesn’t see why Jack doesn’t like Patrick. Jack complains that anyone, even Frankie, would be better for Jennifer than Patrick. Billie scoffs at Jack’s commentary because he’s talking like he won’t be around and alarms Jack when she jokingly asks if there is something seriously wrong with him.

Sami walks in and while Joelle is in earshot, claims to Lucas that she is only hear to clean out her desk. Joelle continues to watch them as Sami pulls Lucas aside to admit that she’s really here to find evidence that Kate set her up. Lucas refuses to believe that Kate would stoop that low but Sami insists that she never slept with Brandon. Sami tells Lucas about overhearing Eugenia’s phone call but Lucas doesn’t consider that proof. Sami convinces Joelle to go to lunch and then Lucas watches Sami as she sorts through the papers on Joelle’s desk.

Kate’s office & Hospital:

Kate writes out another check to Karen as payment for a conviction in Shawn’s case. Before Karen can react, her cell phone rings and it is Philip asking her to consider releasing Shawn on bail. Karen puts Philip on hold while she tells Kate what Philip wants her to do. Kate angrily whispers that Karen can’t do that.

Max tells Patrick that whatever he and Chelsea do or don’t do is none of his business and walks away.

Philip wants to know if Karen will grant his request. Karen puts Philip on hold again to relay what Philip is offering, adding that Philip’s offer and threat to take away the family support is a better offer than Kate’s money.

Basic Black:

Sami shows Lucas that the calls between Eugenia and Kate go on for months and sometimes were as frequent as several times a day. Sami quickly drops the phone log when Joelle returns.

Kate steps out of her office, already ticked, and upon seeing Sami tells Joelle to call security. Sami claims that she’s only here to clean out her desk. Lucas questions Kate about having so many calls from Eugenia and Kate claims, after glaring at Joelle, that she’s been helping Eugenia ever since Sami got her fired but Sami doesn’t buy it.
