Mimi complains as Shawn insists on having stopped by the hospital to see Belle instead of going straight home. Mimi points out that it was normal for Lexie to want Belle and the baby to come to the hospital to get cleaned up and get the baby registered. Shawn repeats that he only wants to make sure Belle is all right. Mimi points out that they saw that Belle and the baby were fine at the church. Mimi asks Shawn why he just cant leave that family alone.
Belle, with baby in her arms, Philip, Victor, and Lucas visit and chat about the new baby. Victor advises Belle and Philip that a baby is born with a personality all their own and will soon let them know what she likes and dislikes. Philip tells Victor that he learned how to be a dad from the best and Victor tells Philip that he is proud of him. Everyone laughs as Victor mentions being proud of baby K when she beats up her first boy. Victor promises to keep his opinions to himself but Lucas speaks up to say that Belle and Philip are doing it right by being married and giving baby K the right start in life because she has two parents who arent insane. Belle assures Lucas that Will is a great kid and apologizes for Samis behavior. Lucas hopes that the stress of today didnt prompt Belles labor but Philip complains about Kates way of revealing the truth about Stan. Lucas isnt surprised that Kate would make such a show of it because she needed to humiliate Sami. Philip wonders what will happen to Sami as far as paying for her crimes but Lucas says he doesnt care because both Sami and Kate are out of his life for good.
Kate steps off the elevator with an armload of baby gifts. Nicole walks up and congratulates Kate on getting revenge on Sami. Kate admits that it felt good but Nicole warns that it might come back and bite her in the ass.
Sami dressed in her wedding dress still and Austin step off the elevator. They run into an older female neighbor who stops to talk upon noticing Samis wedding dress. The neighbor notices that the man with Sami is not her groom but does recognize Austin even though she cant recall the name at first. Austin re-introduces himself and the neighbor assumes that Sami and Austin were the ones who got married.
Mimi calls Shawn on already breaking his promise to not interfere with the new family and to respect their marriage and commitment. Shawn insists that he wont interfere but that doesnt mean that he is going to stop caring about Belle.
Lucas would rather put the focus back on baby K and Victor notes the special bond between a father and daughter. Shawn and Mimi enter the room to check on Belle and the baby and Philip fills them in on the harrowing delivery. Philip and Lucas step aside to let Shawn and Mimi get a close up view of the baby and then Mimi tries to make a hasty exit with Shawn. Shawn declares that before he leaves, hed like to say something.
Kate pulls Nicole aside to question her about why this could come back to bite her. Nicole explains that Roman and Lucas will want nothing to do with Kate for the way she exposed Sami but Kate still has confidence that things will work out. Nicole now realizes why Kate threw her out of the apartment when the disguise arrived and gloats about how even though she wishes she had been a part of it; Sami and Lucas are now history. Nicole is taken aback when Kate retorts that Nicole is now history too and wishes to end their relationship since it is no longer of use to her. Nicole scoffs and calls Kate an ungrateful bitch.
Austin corrects the neighbor by letting her know that he and Sami didnt get married and dont plan on getting married. The neighbor remembers that Sami planned to marry Lucas and offends Sami when she refers to Will as their illegitimate son. The neighbor chuckles as she refers to Sami as a walking disaster when it comes to weddings and though she gets the names wrong, she recalls all of Samis past fiancés. The neighbor taunts Sami by asking why she wasnt invited because it must have been some show. Sami lunges at the lady but the neighbor stands back while Austin holds Sami back.
Shawn tells Philip and Belle that he wishes them all a happy healthy life and that they are going to be great parents. Belle breathes a sigh of relief and she and Philip thank Shawn for his kind words. Shawn and Mimi leave. Victor and Belle note how generous that was of Shawn and Mimi to come by given how theyve recently felt about the new parents. Philip remembers that he went and got bubble gum and chocolate cigars. Lucas decides to take one of each to give to Will. Lucas asks about a name for baby K. Belle mentions narrowing down the list from 80 to six. Lucas is touched when Philip tells him that they had narrowed the boys names down to Luke. Lucas points out that since baby K is a girl, theyd have to change it to Lucille. Belle likes the idea of Lucy but Philip points out that that wasnt on the list. Belle explains that she had to make a list because she doesnt want something trendy where the baby will be in kindergarten among several other girls with the same name or something too different where shell have to spell her name all the time. Philip jokes about how hes stuck having to spell his name all the time and teases Victor about how they always have to spell Kiriakis. Belle complains that she wasnt able to just know by looking at baby K and Philip asks Victor and Lucas for their input. Everyone laughs as Lucas suggests that baby K should be named Kiki. Lucas explains that it would be short for Katherine but Philip vetoes the idea because it wouldnt be fair to Lucas to be naming the baby after Kate. Belle notes how everyone in her family is named after someone else and she used to hate being named Belle. Philip doesnt remember how Belle got teased because of her name and its ability to rhyme with almost anything. Belle wants to prevent baby K from being called geeky Kiki. Philip promises baby K that he and Belle are going to be the parents she deserves.
Shawn and Mimi watch the scene through the room window. Shawn confides in Mimi that if he had done things differently, hed be in Philips place right now. Mimi notes how if shed done things differently, it would be her and Rex in there now. They wrap their arms around each other and leave.
Nicole complains that Kate should be grateful to her and had promised her money. Kate points out that she did give Nicole some money but Nicole admits that she spent it all on the dress for Bradys wedding. Kate points out that it was Tony and not Nicole that enabled her to stop the wedding and while they both hate Sami, thats where their common interests end. Kate adds that she still hates Nicole for her treatment of Lucas when they were married because she is convinced it led to Lucas alcoholism. Nicole uses the reference to bring up Austin but Kate tells Nicole that Austin is not back in town yet and vows not to let Nicole get to Austin before walking away. Nicole makes a face in Kates direction before proclaiming that Austins return could not have come at a better time.
Austin forcefully gets Sami to head into her apartment even though Sami and the neighbor are still exchanging insults. Austin closes the door in the womans face and neighbor walks away. Sami is still angry about the womans remarks and Austin has to keep her from rushing back out of the apartment to confront the woman again. Austin asks Sami why she cares about the opinion of a crazy old woman whom she hardly knows. Sami complains that the woman doesnt know her either but was still judging her. Sami is shocked when Austin proclaims that what the lady was saying is the truth.
Philip notes that they are still down to three names and everyone laughs as Lucas tries one last effort to name the baby Kiki. Belle wonders if Marlena will have an opinion too and hopes that her full memory will come back. Lucas adds that he wishes he could forget what Sami and Kate did to him. Victor looks up and spots Kate walking by the room. Kate stops when she catches his glance and then steps away from the door. Victor excuses himself and leaves the room.
Victor walks over to Kate as she finishes signing the card to go with her gifts. Kate asks about Belle and the baby and Victor tells her about how they were talking about a name. Kate wants to go right in to see the baby but Victor stops her.
Shawn and Mimi return home. Shawn apologizes for how hard the hospital visit was for Mimi. Mimi admits that seeing Belle with baby K prompted her to mend their friendship but then adds that she didnt because she still cant forgive Belle for telling Rex about her abortion. Mimi maintains that while she knows her choices were wrong, if Belle was really her friend, she would have respected Mimis desire to tell Rex in her own time. Shawn questions whether Mimi would forgive Belle if she had Rex back but Mimi is sure that Rex will never come back. Shawn assures Mimi that after some time passes; Rex will miss her and come back whereas for him and Belle it really is over. Shawn makes Mimi get up and answer the knock at the door and teases her by locking his legs around her as she walks past him. The visitor turns out to be a deliveryman with a package for Mimi. Mimi signs for the package and asks Shawn to tip the guy. The deliveryman leaves and Mimi notices that the package is from Rex.
Sami yells at Austin to get out if hes only going to criticize her and Austin heads for the door. Sami stops him from leaving by apologizing for telling him to go. Austin points out that Sami never stops to think before anything she says or does that she might regret later. Sami starts to defend her behavior by blaming it on the neighbor but becomes frustrated. Austin corrects Sami by pointing out that it was her own behavior that is making her upset. Sami grunts and groans as she tries to pace around her apartment in the cumbersome wedding dress. Austin advises her to change out of the dress and Sami asks him to hand her the storage bag from the closet as she sits down on the couch to take off her shoes. Austin rummages in Samis closet, pulls out two handfuls of her old wedding dresses in storage bags and confronts Sami about them.
Lucas compliments Philip and Belle by telling Philip that hes got it all with both Belle and baby K as the two best women in his life. Belle is touched by the remark. Lucas insists that even though he wasnt on speaking terms with Kate after her part in his first wedding, it is over for good now.
Kate wants to know why she shouldnt go in and see the baby and Victor explains that Lucas is in there now. Victor prefaces his next comment by mentioning how he feels he can speak freely to Kate given their history. Kate agrees that she respects Victor enough to listen to him but not necessarily agree with him. Victor tells Kate that how she exposed Sami was wrong and asks if she has any idea how much this will cost her. Kate notes that this is the second time shes heard this and hints at how it was Nicole who said it. Victor reluctantly agrees with Nicole and points out how furious Lucas was with Kate after messing with the first wedding. Kate is confident that Lucas will eventually realize she was right. Victor insists that that isnt going to happen and advises Kate to watch her back as far as Sami is concerned.
Sami tries to grab the dresses from Austin but he spreads them out on the table. Austin picks up each one as he recognizes them from the three almost weddings between him and Sami. Sami, now enraged again, reaches into her closet and pulls out the other three dresses and describes them each as the one she wore to marry Franco, the one to marry Brandon, and the first one to marry Lucas before slamming those down on top of the others on the table. Sami asks Austin where he was planning on staying and Austin reluctantly explains that he had planned to stay at Lucas apartment while they were off on their honeymoon. Sami starts to cry again at the mention of their honeymoon but Austin insists that she calm down. Austin asks to use the shower while Sami changes out of her wedding dress and she says its fine. Austin heads into the bathroom. Sami looks over each of her wedding dresses as she begins to sob.
Mimi has now opened the package and fights back tears as she shows Shawn how Rex has sent back every little thing from pictures of them to gifts from her and little trinkets from their time together. Shawn adds that hes got a trunk full of items from his time with Belle. Mimi feels that this is a sign that Rex wants nothing to do with her anymore. Mimi tosses the box onto the table and Shawn wraps his arm around her.
Kate claims to not be worried about Sami because Samill be too busy paying for her escapade. Victor points out that Sami as Stan could very well have killed Kate but Kate doesnt think Sami would ever go that far. Victor warns Kate not to assume anything after what she did to Sami. Kate feels that she must remain confident that Lucas will eventually realize she had to do what she did and forgive her. Victor warns that whether Kate did it for Lucas own good or not, all Lucas is going to see is that Kate ruined his chance at happiness and will always blame her. Philip comes out of the room and greets Kate. They talk about how Kate missed the babys birth and how Philip must be feeling having to be on his feet for so long. Philip vows to work extra hard on his recovery so that baby K will feel safe in daddys arms as hes walking around with her. Kate wants to go in and see the baby but Philip tries to spare her by leading her away from the room with the claim that Belle is preparing to nurse the baby. Lucas steps out and angrily announces plans to leave should Kate be planning on coming in to see the baby. Kate tries to get Lucas to stay but Lucas angrily tells Kate that he never wants to speak to her again and right now, he can barely get his mouth to form the word mom. Lucas tells Kate that in his eyes, she is far worse than Sami could ever be.
Sami angrily shoves the wedding dresses back in the closet and shuts the door. The doorbell rings and Sami rushes to answer it thinking its Lucas but its actually Nicole. Nicole calls Sami the runaway-from bride and then stops Samis attempt to slam the door in her face as she pushes her way in and asks for more cheap vodka. Sami refuses the request and tells Nicole to leave. Nicole wants to speak her mind first and Sami allows it. Nicole gloats about how Sami got dumped and how it serves her right for not wanting to help her with Brady. Sami orders Nicole to get out but then realizes that Nicole had to have told Kate about her disguise.
Lucas wants to get away from Kate but Kate tries to convince Lucas to stick around and share in the happiness of baby K. Lucas accuses Kate of being glad that hes here instead of running after Sami. Lucas insists that Sami is dead to him just like Kate is. Kate protests but Lucas insists that he has nothing to say to Kate ever and leaves the waiting area. Philip offers his sympathy for both Lucas and Kate and assures Kate that he still loves them both. Philip kisses Kate goodbye and heads back into Belles room. Victor asks Kate if getting revenge on Sami was worth losing the son she loves so much. This time Kate isnt so quick to answer.
Nicole maintains that she did not help Kate get the Stan disguise. Sami doesnt believe her. Nicole points out that she couldnt have gotten the makeup and disguise to Kate because even Sami told her that it would be destroyed by the time of Brady and Chloes wedding. Nicole insists that Kate had to have gotten the disguise from Tony and tells Sami that if Kate hadnt gotten her, someone else would have. Nicole reminds Sami that it was her own choices that caused her to lose Lucas and tells Sami that she should stop blaming everyone else. Austin steps out of the bathroom in only a towel tied around his lower body. Nicole becomes flustered at the sight of Austin as he explains that he is here to help Sami. Sami tells Austin to get Nicole out of her apartment and tells Nicole to be gone by the time she comes back from changing out of her dress. Sami slams the door as she heads into her bedroom. Austin explains that he is here because Sami needed a friend. Nicole and Austin hug and Austin smells the liquor on Nicole. Nicole starts to complain about her life but Austin points out that alcohol is not the answer. Sami bellows from the bedroom to yell at Austin to get Nicole out.
Shawn offers his condolences as Mimi complains about her last bit of hope now lost. Shawn feels bad because only a moment before he was helping get Mimis hopes up but Mimi assures him that she is glad he is here. Shawn suggests that they not spend the evening moping around and instead offers to take Mimi out to dinner. Mimi starts to turn Shawn down but then decides that it would be a good idea. They head into their respective bedrooms to change.
Philip thanks Belle for making things good again and shares his thoughts on how baby K will not know him as he used to be. Belle assures Philip that he is the same person but Philip insists that he is different because he is stronger now. Philip promises Belle and baby K that he is going to treasure and protect them for the rest of his life. Philip notes how every decision and every action they do from now on is going to affect baby K for the rest of her life and thats something he cant wait to do. Belle and Philip kiss.
Kate emphatically tells Victor that yes it was worth it. Kate insists that she must believe that Lucas will realize she did it out of love and will eventually forgive her. Kate walks off leaving Victor staring after her and shaking his head.
Lucas talks on the hospital pay phone with Will. Lucas tells Will that even though he doesnt think Sami is going to change, he will never prevent Will from seeing her if thats what Will wants. Lucas then advises Will that Sami may have to go to jail for her crimes but adds that Kate wont be going to jail too for she has paid enough by losing him and Roman. Lucas decides that he and Will are going to go out to dinner tonight.
Sami yells once again from her bedroom to warn Austin that if Nicole isnt gone by the time she comes out, she is going to tear Nicoles bloodshot eyes out.

Nicole suggests going out tonight but Austin would rather stay and keep Sami company tonight. Austin gives Nicole his cell phone number so she can call him tomorrow about getting together. Nicole suggests going to Chez Rouge and Austin recognizes it as the place Sami was supposed to have her reception. Nicole thinks that Sami wont ever set foot in there again and commends the place as having the best drinks in town. Austin quips that to Nicole any place has the best drinks in town. Nicole, yelling, calls Sami Stan the man as she lets Sami know that she is leaving and to enjoy her night of wallowing in self-deserved misery. Sami yells at Nicole to go to hell. Nicole says goodbye to Austin and leaves. Austin tells Sami that she can come out now and Sami steps out of her bedroom in her robe and complains about Nicole wanting to kick her while shes down. Austin tells Sami to get dressed because they are going out. Sami doesnt want to go out but Austin refuses to let her sit at home all night and whine. Sami suggests a dark movie theater but Austin insists that they are going to Chez Rouge. Sami points out that that was the place she was going to have her wedding reception and Austin feels that theyll have room for them now. Sami doesnt want to go and be humiliated but Austin insists that Sami face everyone and get it over with. Sami reluctantly agrees but refuses to promise not to complain or whine.
