Kate declares that Shawn must be Belles father and wonders how Belle could have done this to Philip. Philip walks up to Kate and tells her that he doesnt need this right now. Philip thinks Kate was blaming Belle for Claires sickness and defends Belle. Kate decides to take advantage of Philips misjudgment and claim that Claire is sick because she can sense when shes been neglected. Philip insists that Claire hasnt been neglected because Shawn and Mimi have been helping baby-sit. Kate bashes Shawn and accuses him of picking up whatever bacteria while working as a mechanic that got passed on to Claire. Philip insists that Shawn never comes close to Claire until he is completely clean but Kate claims that a mans idea of cleaning up leaves a lot to be desired. Kate becomes uncomfortable when Philip insists that Shawn loves Claire like she is his own. Kate insists that Philip and Belle should be the only ones here for Claire and Philip points out that that leaves out Kate and the other grandparents. Kate walks away with the claim that she needs to make a phone call. Philip slams his fist down on the counter in frustration.
Belle is furious at the news that Marlena and John are breaking up. John tries to assure Belle that they will get through this but Belle insists that she needs them together. Marlena tries to explain her decision but Belle accuses her of destroying their family. Marlena glares at John when he tells Belle that Marlena doesnt really want to destroy their family. Marlena assures Belle that she isnt destroying their family. Belle thinks simply talking through their problems will keep John and Marlena together. John promises Belle that he wont give up on Marlena or their relationship. Marlena asks to speak to Belle alone so John walks away. Marlena tells Belle that she knows how deeply John loves her and how she must have loved him too and Belle tries to convince Marlena that she still loves John. Marlena tells Belle about being married to Alex and her first account of hysterical amnesia. Belle thinks Marlena should still remain with John because Alex is her ancient past but Marlena admits to having strong feelings for Alex. Marlena tells Belle that her feelings are deeper than her feelings for John and apologizes for her insistence on exploring those feelings. Belle doesnt understand how Marlena would want to be with a total stranger but Marlena points out that to her, everyone is a total stranger. Marlena insists that Alex was the one person she recognized and Belle walks off. Marlena follows after her and likens their current situations. Belle doesnt think they are in the same situation. Marlena uses how Belle called out Shawns name during labor as an example for how she can still love her first husband. Belle insists that their situation is still different because Shawn was her first love but not her first husband. Marlena warns that if Belle still has such deep feelings for Shawn, she may have to choose between Shawn and Philip once again. Belle insists that shes already made her choice in Philip but Marlena can see that its tearing her apart. Belle vows to remain true and faithful to Philip no matter how she feels about Shawn. Marlena asks Belle what she does with those feelings for Shawn and Belle admits that she would change things if she could go back. Belle doesnt think that they should be talking about this right now because Claire is fighting for her life and Marlena is abandoning the family. Marlena assures Belle that she would never leave her and that she loves her. Belle warns that if Marlena leaves John for Alex, shell be making the biggest mistake of her life. Philip joins them and Belle tells him that she wants to spend the night with Claire. Philip agrees and Belle steps away to call Mimi to ask her to bring some clothes. Philip assures Marlena that he is going to take care of Belle and Claire. Kate watches from down the hall as Philip comforts a now tearful Marlena.
Alex yells at the airport clerk for keeping him on hold too long but then apologizes. Alex wants to get out of Salem tonight but the clerk points out that the airport is closed due to the ice storm. Alex asks to be booked on the first possible flight out no matter where its headed. Alex finishes ordering his plane ticket and turns around to find John standing behind him. John admits to overhearing Alexs plan to leave and commends him for doing the right thing. Alex feels that under the circumstances its the only thing he can do but refuses to leave until he says goodbye to Marlena. John follows Alex into the corridor but stops talking when he sees Marlena standing there. Alex tells Marlena that he accepts her choice and respects it. Alex claims that he has no reason to stay in Salem now that Marlena has chosen John and will refer her case to a colleague. John tries to quickly get rid of Alex but it doesnt work. Alex tells Marlena that he never stopped loving her and would have come back sooner if it wouldnt have disrupted Marlenas life. Alex adds that all he ever wanted was for Marlena to be happy and turns to go. Marlena calls him back. John tries to get Alex to leave under the premise of giving Marlena time to think. Alex disregards Johns attempt and tells Marlena that while he wishes she had chosen him, he will sign any divorce papers she gives him. Marlena tells Alex that she doesnt want a divorce and doesnt want him to go. Alex doesnt understand why Marlena wouldnt want to divorce him when she chose John. Marlena explains that she chose Alex and not John. Alex is ecstatic and enthusiastic for the chance to have the future he always dreamed of with Marlena. John, with a tear running down his face, vows to not let that happen.
Shawn and Mimi are now taking a shower together. Shawn and Mimi have taken their lovemaking session back to Shawns bed where they lie in each others arms. Mimi reveals to Shawn that back in high school she used to be late to class because she would purposefully walk in the wrong direction just to be able to pass Shawn in the hall between classes. Shawn now thinks that one should date more than one person in high school and Mimi brings up how she only ever dated Kevin right before he went away to college. Mimi mentions how she never kept in touch with Kevin and confirms that that wont happen with her and Shawn. Mimi smiles as Shawn tells her that shes the only one he wants to be with. Shawn suggests that Mimi move into his bedroom and then they can use the other bedroom as a game room. Mimi likes hearing Shawn say that he wishes they could spend every night in each others arms. Mimis cell phone rings and it is Belle who tells her that she is calling because of an emergency. Kate eavesdrops on Belles phone conversation. Belle fills Mimi in on Claires condition and asks for a change of clothes and Claires stuffed bunny. Mimi tells Belle that she and Shawn will be there as soon as they get dressed and Belle pressed for more information on what they were doing together. Mimi dismisses the question and promises to head for the hospital before hanging up on Belle.
Belle returns to Claires exam room and yells at Nurse Molly for there not being a diagnosis yet. Nurse Molly leaves to try and find out more information. Belle assures Claire that she and Philip are here and they are going to make it like her crib at home. Belle promises Claire to be there for her from now on because families are supposed to stay together.
Philip joins Kate again and Kate admits to overhearing Belles phone conversation. Kate warns against Mimi and Shawn coming down to visit. Philip disagrees because he thinks Belle can use all the support she can get and adds that he and Belle are all for Mimi and Shawns relationship. Kate is surprised to hear that Belle would be for the relationship and Philip tells her how Belle and Shawn had decided to wait before taking that next step in their relationship. Kate is skeptical that Shawn and Belle never made love but Philip insists that he was the first man Belle was with based on what Belle told him. Kate is overly relieved which leads Philip to question why Kate is so curious about Belles sex life. Kate claims its because shes amazed that a girl these days could stick to the choice of being a virgin until her wedding night. Philip steps away to check on Claire. Kate feels relieved to learn that Shawn and Belle never slept together and that would mean Shawn couldnt be Claires father but then considers whether Belle could have lied.
Mimi and Shawn meet up with Belle and ask about Claire. Belle says there is no change and Belle and Shawn step away to get coffee. Belle becomes flustered as she complains to Shawn about there being no change and how she cant lose it now. Shawn helps Belle with the coffee and promises Belle that he and Mimi are here to help as well as Philip who is the best father a baby could have. Philip asks Mimi to talk with him about something else and brings up how close Shawn and Mimi were at dinner. Mimi blames it on the spices and Philip calls her on how shes blushing now. Mimi hints that she and Shawn got a lot closer since dinner. Philip is happy for Mimi and is glad that after all theyve been through theyve straightened things out and remained friends as he and Mimi spot Shawn hugging Belle.
Kate sneaks into the records room and brings up Shawns file from his motorcycle accident on the computer. Kate checks Shawns blood type listed in the record and doesnt like what she finds. Kate realizes that Shawns blood type matches Claires therefore proving that Belle lied about never sleeping with Shawn. Kate returns to the waiting room in time to see Shawn comforting Belle.

Patrick warns Hope and Billie that even with Bos wet suit and oxygen, he cant last underwater much longer. Hope rushes over to the EMS workers and asks if theyve heard from Bo or know how much longer he can stay down there. They merely shrug their shoulders. Patrick warns that this doesnt feel right and Hope calls out to Bo.

Billie tries to comfort Hope as Hope, sensing that something is wrong, frantically calls out to Bo. Bo uses everything he can including his air mask to try and free his trapped foot.

Patrick points out that Bos air hose was cut and he could have died. Hope wants to know why Bo risked it and Bo reveals that he brought up Jacks license plate. Billie grills Bo about the rest of Jacks car and wants him to go back down but Bo says he cant because the river currant is too strong. Bo believes that even if Jack made it out of the car, the current of the river would have swept him away.
Chelsea, Abby, Jennifer, and Frankie have gotten a lot of decorating done. Abby hears a car pull up and Jennifer rushes to the door thinking its Jack.
