Bookstore:

Jennifer picks up a book from the floor and asks if he is seriously buying this book. Jack, fearing that Jennifer is looking at the assisted suicide book, tries to explain but instead is shocked when Jennifer reveals her happiness at the idea that Jack was buying a book on holistic treatments. Frankie looks skeptical but Jack decides to let Jennifer continue thinking this. Jennifer asks why Jack had to come out in the middle of the night to get it and Jack claims he was intending on getting back in time to surprise Jennifer when she woke in the morning. Jennifer hugs Jack and then steps away to see if the store has any of the books she researched online. Frankie confronts Jack about his real intentions.

Mimi’s loft:

Shawn puts Claire back in her bouncy seat even though she is still crying. Shawn rushes to Mimi’s side and tries to wake her.

Kate’s suite:

John paces the floor and complains to Kate about how Alex has convinced Marlena that she is in love with him. Kate suggests that Marlena remembering things means that Alex’s control over her is dissolving. John tells Kate that he has contacted the one person who can talk Marlena into not dissolving the marriage. Kate asks whom that is just as there is a knock on the door. John answers the door and tells the person that he needs a big favor.

Penthouse:

Alex and Marlena return and Alex hopes that they can continue their work without any more interruptions. Marlena reveals that she began having memories flashes while with John. Alex holds the charm at waist level as he tries to convince Marlena that what she was seeing was only mind tricks. Marlena starts to protest but then looks down and sees the charm. Alex claims that John has been using Marlena’s fragile mental state to manipulate her by planting the memories she believes are her own memories. Marlena debunks his theory by pointing out that the memories seem real. Marlena doesn’t have a rebuttal for Alex’s claim that the ISA taught John how to control someone’s mind. Alex catches Marlena’s eye with the charm as he insists that the best thing for her to do is to file for the divorce. Marlena notes how Alex keeps saying that to her and Alex asks if Marlena wishes to change her mind.

Kate’s suite:

John’s visitor turns out to be Father Jansen. Father Jansen can’t believe that Marlena would consider a divorce. John thinks that Father Jansen is the only one that Alex can’t stop from seeing Marlena. Father Jansen agrees to try and leaves.

Penthouse:

Alex talks bad about John even though he’s claiming that it’s Marlena’s choice whether or not she goes back to John. Alex puts the charm in Marlena’s hand and tells her to forget John’s fake memories and remember their time together instead. Alex urges Marlena to follow through with the divorce in order to be happy. Marlena gets up to look at a picture of her and John and can’t understand how they could have had such a bad relationship when they look so happy. Alex pockets the charm and turns on the music box style music. Marlena asks him to turn the music off because she has a headache. Alex claims it’s soothing but Marlena insists that it stay quiet so Alex turns it off. Marlena wants to get ready for bed and Alex offers to make her some tea. Marlena heads upstairs. Alex wonders what keeps breaking his control. Alex vows to not lose Marlena now and holds up the vial of powdered drug.

Kate’s suite:

John complains of tension in his shoulders so Kate offers to help massage out the knots. John takes Kate’s hand in his to get her to stop and says her name in a warning tone. Kate tells John to relax because she doesn’t mean this massage to be a sign of foreplay or anything more. Kate tells John that he made the right decision in asking Father Jansen to talk to Marlena and thinks the plan will work to give John the time he needs to convince Marlena that she loves him. John is confident that he need only get Marlena alone again to have her remember the love they shared.

Penthouse:

Marlena comes back downstairs in her robe as Alex drops some of the powdered drug into Marlena’s tea. Marlena, upon Alex’s inquiry, still complains of having a headache and Alex claims that the tea will help clear her head. Marlena starts to take a sip but then is distracted by the clock chimes. Marlena flashes back to kissing John. Marlena admits to Alex that she is remembering and looks back at the clock.

Jennifer joins them with a stack of books in hand and shares her joy in Jack’s turnaround. Jack pulls Jennifer aside to caution her against getting her hopes up. Frankie listens in on how Jennifer is willing to go through all this trouble for the hope of just one more hour with Jack. Jack looks sad as Jennifer proclaims that they’ll spend the remaining days having fun and doing whatever Jack wants to do even if that means eating pizza and sushi and riding roller coasters or just laying in bed. Jennifer starts to cry and hugs Jack as they each declare that they aren’t ready to lose the other yet.

Mimi’s loft:

Shawn continues to try and rouse Mimi but now Claire has stopped crying. Mimi comes to and Shawn explains that she must have fainted when she reacted to Claire’s crying. Shawn helps Mimi to the couch and Mimi refuses to go seek medical attention. Shawn apologizes again for not asking Mimi first but Mimi sees this as punishment for lying to Rex. Shawn regrets deciding to go take the shower but Mimi complains that she should have been able to handle Claire’s crying. Mimi tears up, as she fears that Shawn has lost all respect for her since she couldn’t put her own feelings aside to care for Claire.

Penthouse:

Marlena is so excited about remembering that she neglects to drink the tea. Alex insists that she drinks her tea and they go back and forth about it so much that the hot tea spills on each of their hands. Marlena wipes up the spill and takes the mug into the kitchen.

Alex is surprised to see Father Jansen at the door. Father Jansen asks to see Marlena but when he won’t tell Alex what he wants to see her about, Alex claims that Marlena isn’t available. Father Jansen still insists to see Marlena and Alex guesses that John sent him over as he keeps checking to make sure Marlena doesn’t come back out of the kitchen. Father Jansen lets himself in and claims that he might be able to bring comfort through speaking with Marlena. Alex fears that Marlena will seem him as another stranger trying to pressure her but Father Jansen wants to leave the decision up to Marlena. Alex claims that Marlena is already asleep but then Marlena comes out of the kitchen. Alex claims that Father Jansen was just leaving but Marlena asks him to stay.

Kate is shocked at what she sees when John opens up the case.

Bookstore:

Jennifer steps away again to search for more books. Frankie makes sure that Jennifer is out of earshot before calling Jack a good actor because he can never tell if Jack is telling the truth or playing them. Jack claims to be an open book so Frankie asks to know what is really going on. Jack flashes back to asking for the assisted suicide books. Jack sticks to his story about doing this for Jennifer and then threatens to come back and haunt Frankie if he doesn’t stick to his promise. Frankie doesn’t buy Jack’s excuse but Jack claims that as long as it makes Jennifer happy, that’s all he cares about. Jennifer walks up to them with a shocked expression on her face. Jack asks what is wrong and Jennifer says she now knows exactly what is going on.

Marlena perks up when Father Jansen assures her that the heart still knows the love they shared. Father Jansen tells Marlena that she must ask for God’s help and be a willing participant. Marlena smiles as Father Jansen recites, “what God has put together, let no man put asunder.” Marlena tears up again as she feels so confused. Father Jansen has Marlena promise to think about what he said and Marlena wipes her tears as she walks him to the door.

Jennifer slams down the other books she’s picked up and tells Jack that there is no sense in lying because she is on to him. Jack denies it until Jennifer mentions talking to the sales clerk about the book Jack asked to have on hold. Jack starts to try and explain but Jennifer interrupts to call Jack a sweet misguided loveable jerk. Jack is confused so Jennifer holds up a book about how to grieve as a family. Jennifer hugs him, as she is touched that he’s looking out for his family while going through this. Jennifer puts the book away as she insists that they put that topic off so they can deal with Jack and picks up the new books she had gathered.

Jack likens the sentiment to Peter Pan but Jennifer compares it to their wedding vows. Jennifer gives Jack the stack of books and tells him to pay for them while she waits outside with Frankie. Jack tears up as he insists that it isn’t in the cards.

Mimi’s loft:

Shawn hugs Mimi and asks her to forgive herself for what happened as a result of her medical procedure. Mimi thinks of herself as a bad godmother and a bad woman in general for freaking out when Claire started crying. Shawn continues to comfort Mimi though Mimi doesn’t think she deserves his niceness. Shawn has Mimi lie down and try to fall asleep. Shawn kisses Mimi once she closes her eyes. Mimi looks up at Shawn as he flatters her and says he’s happy to be dating her. Shawn has Mimi close her eyes again and think about the future. Claire starts to fuss so Shawn carries Claire and the bouncy seat into his bedroom. Mimi relishes in the idea that Shawn wants to date her when a devilish version of Mimi appears on the edge of the couch to claim that Shawn was only being nice and wouldn’t really want to date her because he wants kids. A more angelic version of Mimi rocking a baby carriage argues on behalf of adoption. The two alter egos argue about Mimi’s predicament. Mimi wakes with a start and calls out to Shawn. Shawn comes back out of his bedroom as Mimi tries to find where the alter egos went. Mimi realizes she sounds crazy and stops. Shawn confronts Mimi with a smile about how she said his name in her sleep and wants to know what she was dreaming about.

Mimi claims not to remember what she was dreaming about. Shawn makes sure that Mimi is fine and then heads back into the bedroom to give Claire a diaper change. Mimi is now convinced that Shawn is only dating her out of pity and will soon realize that there is no future between them.

Bookstore:

Frankie brings up how Jack was buying books on grieving as well as Jennifer blames it on Jack’s tendency to be a realist. Jennifer insists that Jack is never going to give up and heads for the car. Frankie smiles at her but then his face drops as he follows her to the car.

Jack brings the stack of books to the counter where he thanks the now younger man for covering for him. The man explains that the older man Jack met earlier was his father. Jack compliments the man on choosing the grief book but the man angrily replies that his father is all for handing out the assisted suicide books but never bothers to follow up by offering grieving information to the families left behind. The man accuses Jack of not believing in assisted suicide either for he wouldn’t be lying to his wife. Jack insists he is sparing his family from having to watch him die a painful death and gets angry when the man claims that Jack doesn’t look like he’s in pain.
