Jennifer looks at Jack in shock as he suggests that they bring the music inside and hell make his famous jalapeno dip. Jennifer hides her face as Jack dances backwards out of the garage. Jennifer and Frankie note once alone that the behavior displayed a moment ago by Jack wasnt his true self. Frankie assures Jennifer that hes made sure that the trouble with Jack is not legal trouble or another woman. Jennifer wishes she knew what was wrong with Jack.
Jack feels that Frankie is a perfect replacement for Jennifer when he dies. Jack imagines how Frankie will comfort Jennifer once he dies as well as banishing Patrick from Jennifers life.
Rex asks Mimi to tell him what she and Jan were arguing about. Mimi reiterates her story about how she and Jan were fighting because Jan considered it Mimis fault that Mimi couldnt get pregnant. Rex doesnt believe the story because he wouldnt have broken up with Mimi simply on Jans word.
Belle and John walk up close to Lexie as she tries to find the words. Lexie warns that Marlenas condition is critical because shes got hemorrhaging from the miscarriage and head trauma from the fall.

Belle heads over to comfort John and John tells her that having her here means the world to him. Belle pulls away from their hug when her stomach starts to hurt again. Belle brushes off Johns concern and uses calling Brady as an excuse to leave. Lexie comes back around the curtain and both Roman and John ask to see Marlena. Lexie explains that Marlena is still unconscious but it might help to hear a familiar voice and chooses John to come see Marlena first. John heads behind the curtain.
Sami starts to protest that John shouldnt be near Marlena right now because she blames John and thinks Marlena wouldnt want to see him as the first person she sees when she wakes up. Roman tells Sami to stop, insisting that there is enough blame to go around for everybody.

Frankie and Jennifer laugh at the old picture of them together as Jack comes back into the living room with his jalapeno dip. They are shocked when Jack suggests playing truth or dare with the dare being that they have to try some of his dip. Frankie agrees to go first and chooses truth. Jack asks Frankie for his idea of the perfect woman. Jennifer listens intently as Frankie lists that the perfect woman has to be intelligent, kind, beautiful and have a great sense of humor. Jennifer sarcastically teases Frankie about how he doesnt ask for much but laughs when Frankie explains that he isnt finished. Frankie adds that the woman has to be a good wife and mother and be able to put up with him. Jennifer takes offense when Jack refers to Jennifer as the perfect woman Frankie just described. Frankie tries to change the focus by piling a huge amount of dip onto a chip and eating it all in one bite. Jack and Jennifer rush over in alarm as Frankie dashes for a drink. Frankie insists he is fine as he shakes off the effect of the jalapenos and downs more drink. Frankie asks Jack next and Jack chooses truth. Jennifer is appalled when Jack easily answers heaven when Frankie asks where Jack sees himself in five years. Jack claims he meant that being with Jennifer is heaven. Jennifer declares that they are now going to play a game that she always wins and storms out.
Marlena now sits up in bed, in obvious pain. John tries to give her something to drink but Marlena pushes it away, insisting on knowing about her baby. Belle and John exchange looks before John tells Marlena that the baby didnt make it. Marlena is in disbelief as she sobs. Belle and John comfort Marlena as Roman listens to Marlenas sobs through the curtain.
Kate walks past Rex and Mimi in the cafeteria. Rex demands to know what Mimi is keeping from him. Mimi avoids answering by noticing that Philip has come into the cafeteria.

Philip tries to tell Sami to stop but Sami ignores his attempt. Sami threatens to expose Kate to Roman as evil.
Sami continues to insult Kate and ignore Philips attempts to stop her. Sami taunts the fact that Kate isnt replying with her own insults but is caught by Roman. Roman pulls Sami aside to yell at her for not abiding by his wishes and stay away from Kate. Kate tells Philip to go check on Belle and Philip leaves. Roman and Sami turn back to Kate and Roman notes that Sami and Kate shouldnt be together. Kate agrees and tells Sami to leave. Sami refuses to leave before telling Roman what Kate just said. Roman asks Kate to clarify but Kate doesnt reply. Sami tells Roman that Kate claimed she was glad that Marlena lost the baby. Kate scoffs at the way Sami phrased her comment. Sami, to Roman, refers to Kate as pure evil and demands that Roman tell Kate that he wants a divorce.
Belle holds her stomach as she and John stand by Marlenas bedside. They become concerned when Marlena doesnt show any response but instead sits motionless with a stoic expression. John calls Lexie over. Lexie checks Marlenas pupils and then tests her reflexes by lifting up Marlenas arm only to have it fall right back down. Lexie becomes alarmed and checks Marlenas vitals as she has John and Belle wait behind the curtain.
Shawn steps away from where he, Rex, and Mimi are talking and walks over to ask Belle about Marlena. Belle starts to tell Shawn that Marlena isnt okay when the monitors start to beep wildly and everyone whips around as Lexie calls for a code blue on Marlena. Belle doubles over in pain and when Shawn asks what is wrong, she faints into his arms just as Philip returns.
Jennifer, Jack, and Frankie are now playing Scrabble. Jack commends Frankie on spelling a long word. Jennifer is glad that they have Scrabble to keep them from playing Truth or dip and Jack calls them jalapeno wimps. Jack complains that Jennifer only likes to play Scrabble because it means she can dazzle everyone with her word tricks. Jack asks Frankie if hes ever heard of a certain word and Jennifer gloats when Frankie recalls the correct definition of the word. Jack teases Jennifer about her using suffixes to make words and Jennifer teases him about his tactic of using prefixes. Jack tells Frankie to hang around for more fun. Jack imagines Jennifer and Frankie playing Scrabble and including him via a picture next to the board while they talk about how Frankie is with the kids. In the fantasy, Jack appears as an angel and his picture winks at him as he watches Jennifer and Frankie play. Back in reality, Jack announces that Jennifer and Frankie tied for the best score and Jennifer protests that Jack must not have added right until she checks the math for herself. Jack takes both Frankie and Jennifers hand as he does a three-way handshake. Jack rushes off with an idea for celebrating the co-winners. Jennifer and Frankie look at each in shock.
Lexie makes sure that Belle, now conscious, is okay enough to leave as Belle sits on another exam bed. Lexie steps outside of the curtain to tell John, Philip, Rex, Mimi, and Shawn that Belle is fine and theyve drawn more blood for more tests.

Lexie warns that Marlenas injuries are worse than they thought and John tells Lexie to do her best. Lexie tells everyone to keep praying and tells John that theyve called in two specialists for Marlena. Philip asks Lexie if more tests for Belle means something more serious than an ulcer.
