Chelsea sits on the pool ladder as Max pops up from underwater. Max tells Chelsea that the best part of a summer night is that no one can see what happens underwater. Max lifts Chelsea up off the ladder and into the water where they kiss.
Billie and Patrick walk up to the pool with plans to cool off since Bonnie never saved up the money for air conditioning inside the house. The mood changes when they spot Chelsea and Max already in the pool. Patrick becomes angry and wants to fight Max since Max hasnt been listening to his verbal warnings but Billie stops him. Billie whispers an alternative idea in Patricks ear.
Frankie dons work gloves and cuts open a box. He smiles as he dusts off an old picture of Jennifer.
Jennifer comes downstairs as Jack returns from giving his parents a ride home since they babysat for Jack Patrick. Jack notices Jennifers sad mood and realizes that she is still upset about what happened on the Fancy Face III. Jack tries unsuccessfully to calm Jennifers fears about Bo and Hopes safety in their quest for Tony. Jennifer becomes angry when Jack admits that he volunteered to go with Hope and Bo. Jennifer feels relieved for a moment when Jack explains that he no longer wants to join the quest and that Bo said no. Jennifer then realizes that it isnt in Jacks nature to accept when anyone says no to him. Jack flashes back to hearing of his prognosis but claims to Jennifer that hes glad Bo said no because it gives him more time to spend at home with his family. Jennifer doesnt buy his excuse and practically yelling in his ear, demands to know what is going on with him.

Kate tries to defend Johns attitude but their conversation is interrupted when Sami bursts in. Sami explains to Roman that Belle called and informed her that Marlena fell down the stairs. Roman tells Sami that they dont know anything yet. Sami looks over at Kate and recalls that Belle told her that Kate was there as well so she accuses Kate of pushing Marlena down the stairs.

Philip grills Shawn about why he and Belle were alone on the roof. Shawn starts off by claiming that he simply went up there for some air and saw Belle already upset while on the phone. Philip wants to know what Belle was upset about but Shawn claims he doesnt know. Philip doesnt believe him and demands to know what is going on with Belle. Shawn tells Philip to talk to Belle because it isnt his place to say.
Belle confirms with John the circumstances leading up to Marlenas fall. Belle, figuring she already knows the answer, asks John why he and Roman were arguing. John, thinking that Belle doesnt know the truth, tells her that the baby is Romans. John is shocked to learn that Belle already knew. Belle defends Marlenas reasoning for not telling John right away. John finds it absurd that Marlena didnt feel that it was okay to tell him anything. Belle points out that none of that matters now, it only matters that Marlena and the baby are okay. John pulls Belle close.
Marlena, her seizures now calmed, quietly calls out Johns name as the nurse removes her oxygen mask. Lexie tells the nurse to bring John in.

Chelsea makes small talk with Patrick by asking what he and Billie are up to tonight. Patrick explains that they were working on a project but decided to take a break and cool off. Chelsea claims that was the idea with her and Max as well but then admits that she had something else in mind when she invited Max over.
Billie pretends to flirt with Max by asking why a big shot like him is with a nobody like Chelsea. Max insists he likes Chelsea but then tells Billie that he wouldnt mind being with someone older, like her.
Patrick isnt sure he wants to hear what Chelsea had in mind but Chelsea quickly negates his line of thinking. Chelsea explains that there is a dance contest tonight at Alices Bar and in an effort to convince Max to help her win the prize of a new car, she told him she was willing to do anything if he would. Patrick is shocked and outraged at this news.
Sami refuses to believe Kates denial of harming Marlena.
