Shawn and Mimi lie in each others arms after making love. They joke about Mimis knack for burning things like the scarf and dinner. They kiss and come close to making love again but Shawn needs a break so he gets out of bed to oblige Mimis request for a glass of water. Mimi reaches for a magazine on the nightstand but ends up knocking it to the floor instead where she notices a picture of Shawn and Belle on the floor.
Shawn returns to the bedroom and notices that Mimi is looking at the picture of him and Belle. Mimi explains that it was in the car magazine. Shawn insists he didnt know it was in there and only took out the magazine because it included a car he is currently working on. Shawn insists that while he and Belle will always be friends, there is no future between them. Mimi is hesitant to reply and Shawn thinks its because she doesnt believe him. Mimi assures Shawn that she believes him but wants to make a confession before they go any further.
Mimi confesses that while she was with Belle earlier, they went from being happy like old times to Belle acting possessive when Mimi mentioned her and Shawns date for tonight. Mimi adds that she asked Belle if she was still in love with Shawn but tells Shawn that Belle gave them her blessing. Mimi admits she was worried that Belle might come between them and she was afraid of getting hurt. Shawn assures Mimi that Belle is married with her own life now. Mimi worries that six months from now something might happen with Belle and Philip but if she didnt think that she and Shawn were planning on a serious relationship, she wouldnt have let tonight happen. Shawn agrees. Shawn is glad to hear Mimi say that Belle still has feelings for Shawn but is committed to Philip. Mimi asks Shawn if he is still in love with Belle.
Shawn assures Mimi that while a part of him will always love Belle; he knows that they both are ready to move on. Mimi wants to know if the sex they shared tonight meant something more and Shawn is glad that they are talking about this. Mimi rambles about how girls talk more about feelings than guys do and admits that she used to write Mrs. Shawn Brady all over her notebook in high school. Mimi continues to ramble on but Shawn interrupts her so he can answer her previous question. Shawn assures Mimi that this was not casual sex for him and is glad that they are talking now because he has something to tell Mimi. Mimi stops him and tells him that if its that he loves her, and then dont say it. Shawn doesnt understand why Mimi would ramble on about feelings if she didnt want him to say he loves her. Mimi explains that she doesnt want Shawn to say it after shes spent the night pushing him to do so. Shawn stops Mimi from explaining further by telling her that he thinks she is wonderful.

Lexie claims she doesnt know but tells Belle to remain positive. Lexie leaves and Philip holds Belle close.
Kate, with the photocopied paper from Claires file in her hand, thinks that she must find out if what the paper says is true. Philip walks up to Kate and asks about the paper. Kate claims that the paper is from work and asks about Claire. Belle tells Kate about how Lexie said they could go in for a few minutes but its too hard to see Claire sleeping like that. Kate assures Belle that this is all part of motherhood and Belle has a future of nursing Claire through cuts and bruises and colds etc with each and every time wanting to be in Claires place instead. Kate tells Philip and Belle to be there for each other to be there for Claire. Philip allows Belle to go in to see Claire alone for a few moments. Philip shares his fears for Claire and how much Claire has helped him and Belle bond more with Kate. Philip is worried that Belles postpartum depression will hinder her ability to deal with Claires condition. Kate assures Philip that Belle will be fine because he is there for her. Philip heads in to join Belle and Claire. John joins Kate and they mutually agree at how right Belle is for Philip and vice versa. John is grateful that Belle has Philip because he believes he and Marlena havent been good parents lately since they arent together. Kate assures John that Belle understands the complicated situation. Kate steps away to make some phone calls.
Once alone in the records room, Kate begs God to let her be wrong. Kate discovers that the last staff member to use the computer neglected to log off. Kate uses the paper to guide her computer search and finds the results upsetting. Kate stops a medical student to ask if it is possible for a child to be neither blood type of their parents. The student says it is possible and Kate asks for confirmation using Belle, Philip, and Claires specific blood types. The medical student becomes concerned and asks why Kate wants to know. Kate claims that she was asking because of a bet with a friend. The medical student tells Kate that it is genetically impossible for someone of Belles blood type and someone of Philips blood type to have a baby Claires blood type.

Alex says he understands and suggests that Marlena go tell John the news. John walks back into the waiting room as Alex tells Marlena to tell John her decision. Marlena walks over to John and tells him that he has something important to tell him. John asks if this is good news or not. Marlena tells John that she has decided whom she wants to be with but before she can say whom, Belle and Philip come back out. Belle is in tears so John and Marlena become concerned. Belle explains that its hard to see Claire in pain and not be able to help her. Marlena assures Belle that by holding Claire and talking to her, it helps more than anything else. Belle thanks her and she and Philip head back to Claire. John brings up Marlenas earlier comment about her decision but is surprised when Marlena gasps at his comforting touch. Marlena declares that shes chosen to be with Alex. John refuses to believe that Marlena chose Alex. John asks Marlena to reconsider her decision and stay with him. Marlena uses the passionate reasons John used as why she cant be with him and adds that she must choose the person she first pledged to spend her life with and that is Alex.
Alex apologizes to Lexie for blackmailing her about the affair with Tek and insists he never would have followed through on it. Lexie asks if Alex is still afraid of what she might find from digging into his past but Alex claims that there is nothing left to hide and his only concern was having Marlena find out before he thought she was ready. Alex laments that the bulk of Marlenas past is still a mystery to her and sighs when he claims that he has lost her. Lexie claims that Alex couldnt have lost Marlena because he never had her. Alex reiterates that he and Marlena were married but Lexie is skeptical. Alex claims that he didnt come back until now because Marlena had already moved on. Alex explains that he came back to Salem because he felt he was the only one who could treat Marlena. Alex acknowledges Lexies disagreement with the methods he chose to use. Alex is confident that the tools were working but laments that Marlena chose John. Lexie is surprised that Marlena would tell Alex that and Alex says thats the gist he got from their conversation and that is why hell be leaving Salem soon. Lexie is surprised that Alex would give up that easily. Alex insists that he must respect Marlenas choice and Lexie apologizes for misjudging Alex. Alex advises Lexie to deal with her feelings for Tek and Abe. Lexie admits to avoiding Tek and Alex asks if she is avoiding him because she doesnt want to see Tek anymore or because she wants to avoid having to make a decision. Lexie insists that she made a mistake with Tek and wants to be with Abe. Lexie thanks Alex for his advice and Alex apologizes again for the perceived blackmail. Lexie notes how when it comes to love, people can do things completely out of character. Alex admits to acting unprofessionally driven more by his love for Marlena that now he feels will never be fulfilled.
