Marlena still thinks she knows Alex from somewhere. Alex makes light of it by asking if its his charming bedside manner that is putting Marlena at ease. Marlena asks if Alex is fishing for a compliment and Alex admits that its been a while since hes treated a private patient and he worried that he lost his touch.

Hope tries to talk Bo out of following the course given to them from a bunch of numbers and becomes annoyed when Bo uses the fact that the numbers were sent to Billie as a defense.

Brady tries to convince Chloe that they should simply concentrate on having found each other. Chloe fears that Bradys lack of ability to see her scars will go away.

Chloes chin quivers as she fights back the tears.
Kate is taken aback by Johns question and evades answering it fully by pointing out whom each of them is married to. Kate continues to evade the question as she complains about how instead of being happy they are living a nightmare and John calls her on it.

Nicole sneaks up behind Eugenia and pretends to knock the toiletry and tape bag out from under her arm.
