Jennifer resigns to waiting out the storm in hopes of a tow truck coming by to help. Frankie turns on the radio and they marvel at how the song that comes on is one they danced to. Jennifer brings up their old art teacher, Mrs. Fullette and tells Frankie about how Mrs. Fullette was so sad because she lost her husband in the war in Korea shortly after they were married. Frankie asks when Jennifer last saw her and Jennifer says that she saw Mrs. Fullette about 10 years ago and she had been so sad and felt she had made a huge mistake by not remarrying. Frankie starts to say something but Jennifer interrupts to wonder if she is going to end up the same way and then begins to get upset at how she's talking like Jack is already dead. Frankie makes Jennifer feel better by revealing that he ran into Mrs. Fullette a few years ago and saw that she was on her honeymoon with Coach Olsen. Jennifer is shocked to hear this news and Frankie goes on to tell her how they were high school sweethearts and each other's prom dates. Frankie and Jennifer flash back to dancing at their own prom. Jennifer is surprised to learn that Coach Olsen waited all that time for Mrs. Fullette. Frankie concludes by saying that after a real tragedy good things can still happen. Jennifer is happy for the couple but still doesn't think anything like that could happen for her. Jennifer insists she'd never expect to find a love like Jack again. Frankie points out that Mrs. Fullette realized that she didn't need to replace her husband and was then free to move on. Frankie recalls how Coach Olsen gave him the advice of never giving up hope. Jennifer points out that Coach Olsen's case was different because Mrs. Fullette was available and asks Frankie for an explanation about why Coach Olsen would give him such advice. Frankie claims that he doesn't remember. A horn honks and an approaching salt truck interrupts their conversation. Frankie promises to get behind the salt truck for a safe ride home and Jennifer assures Frankie that she always feels safe with him.
Billie performs CPR on Jack to try and revive him. Billie, exhausted and sobbing, cries out Jack's name as she sits down next to him. Jack, still unconscious in reality, dreams that he is now dressed as an angel and surrounded by white light. Jack looks around and feels relieved that his suicide attempt was successful and he is now in heaven. Jack begins to wonder if he is really headed to hell and looks around frantically as the white lights change to red. Billie calls out to Jack in an effort to bring him back. Jack looks around at the red color and realizes this means he isn't going to heaven. Jack hears Billie calling to him and regains consciousness. Billie helps Jack to the couch and tells him after learning what Jack had seen that God is mad at him. Billie informs Jack that his suicide attempt didn't work and now she is going to make him regret it. Jack moans as he feels the effects of Billie giving him ipecac syrup. Jack complains of how hard it was to take the pills only now to have to do it all over again. Billie refuses to let him do that and tries to get him to see that there is a reason he didn't die tonight. Billie claims that Jack came back because he regretted doing this to his family. Jack insists that he was doing it for his family. Billie claims that if he does so, Jack will go to hell and never see his family again. Jack insists that God gave him this death sentence and needn't curse him anymore. Billie pleads with Jack to stick around and give his family the time to spend with him. Jack insists again that he was trying to end his life for Jennifer but is overcome with pain. Jack screams in agony as he complains that he didn't want his family to have their last memories of him in this condition. Jack accuses Billie of ruining it all. Jack insists that Billie not tell Jennifer of his suicide attempt. Billie reluctantly agrees. Billie adds that she only agreed for Jennifer's sake because if she ever did find out, she'd never forgive Jack and Billie doesn't want to put Jennifer through that pain. Jack agrees but is overcome with pain again. Billie helps him to the couch in an effort to get him to lie down and the empty pill bottle falls to the floor. Jennifer walks in and is instantly worried when she sees Jack in pain. Jack lies and claims that he stubbed his toe and Billie caught him before he could fall. Billie catches Frankie's eye as he watches her silently slip the ipecac syrup bottle into her pocket. Jennifer fills Jack in on how she talked to Abby who has decided to stay at Chelsea's house. Jennifer tends to Jack and helps him get comfortable on the couch. Frankie also watches Billie silently pocket the empty pill bottle from the floor. Frankie pulls Billie aside to ask what happened. Billie tells Frankie that she got to Jack just in time and Frankie isn't at all happy to hear that his suspicions of Jack's plan were confirmed. Billie hopes that Jack doesn't try it again because he is in such horrible pain. Jack breathlessly tells Jennifer that he is so glad to see her and Jennifer notes how Jack said that like he thought he'd never see her again.

Sami rushes over to Lucas' desk and grabs a paper that Lucas quickly gets upset that Sami is looking at. Sami is shocked at what she reads on the paper. Lucas grabs the papers from Sami and Sami questions him about the legal documents. Lucas insists that the documents are none of Sami's business and doesn' t buy Sami's claim that she was only going to hand them to him. Lucas insists that he's not ready to show the papers to Sami yet and wants to wait so she and everyone can be surprised.
Nicole is confident that they are the better company since she believes that instead of working hard after losing the account, Lucas went home with Sophie. Austin is concentrating instead on how seeing Will reminded him of how much he missed Will especially since for a while he thought he was Will's father. Nicole recalls how Sami has hurt Austin and insists that Sami can't be the woman Austin came back to Salem for. Austin laments about Nicole's persistence in finding out this woman's identity. Nicole admits that she'd like a personal and professional life with Austin and can't be blamed for being curious. Nicole demands to know the woman's identity now. Austin appears close to conceding. Austin agrees to give Nicole a description of the woman and describes her as patient and not pushy getting Nicole to realize his point. Austin repeats that he won't tell Nicole the woman's identity until the company gets off the ground. Nicole reluctantly agrees and claims it's motivation for her to work harder. Nicole warns that she's only doing this under the premise that she's the woman he wants and Austin agrees to let Nicole work under that assumption. Nicole notes how Sami isn't back yet and shares her hope that Lucas will forgive Sami so they can be a family. Austin doesn't want that to happen for fear that Sami could switch and tell Lucas all of their company secrets. Nicole points out that Sami has already done that and they would be better off with Sami working for the enemy. Nicole celebrates how they've secured the loans, capital to stage a takeover, and enough left over for the lease and renovation of their new offices. Nicole shares her impatient desire to see Austin's company become a success so he can announce the woman he came back for. Nicole gets in Austin's face as she insists that it better be her.

Alex insists that he won't take advantage of Marlena in her condition. John claims that Alex should have used the time to come up with a better story because no one will believe what he's claiming.
