She says its because of her that they are all in this mess.

He reminds her that she made him promise that he wouldnt hate her. He wants to know why she made him promise if she did nothing wrong. She grabs the letter, crying, and shoves it back in her purse. He asks her again if she forced Lexi to do anything. She does not want to answer. She finally confesses the truth to him. He comes to the conclusion that maybe whoever sent this letter to her, may have something on Lexi too. She wonders who. She says that eventually the truth will come out now that two people know the truth. She tells him she did it to be with Austin when he wonders what it would have to do with Carrie and Lucas. He suggests going to the police, but she cant because of Roman. She thinks, whoever this is, is going to wait until the perfect time to ruin her, like at the alter. He tells her to burn the letter.

Frankie and Jennifer are sitting by Jacks bedside. He leaves to get her something to eat as Hope enters the room.
Shawn wants Mimi to stop blaming herself. She thinks this will cause Shawn and Belle to get back together. Shawn questions why she would say such a thing. She tells him its because Belle is carrying his child, and that maybe this is Gods way of telling them they should be together. Belle is just trying to keep Phillip calm. He accuses her of wanting this because its Shawns baby, not his.
Sami and E.J. are still trying to access the situation. He tells her to keep her hands clean. He will find out who did this, and they will never hurt her again.

Jennifer cant believe the news Hope has just given her. She questions her intentions with Bo and Patrick. Hope tells Jennifer this baby is a miracle. She wonders if, since this isnt Bos baby, this could be Zacks way of telling her that she no longer belongs with Bo. Jennifer doesnt believe that. Hope is just not sure about anything anymore.

He lets her know that he will be here for her regardless of who she chooses to be with. She thanks him and tells him that he will always have a big part in this babys life.

Phillip says that he wants them to come over now, because there is something he wants to put out on the table tonight. They agree, and the four of them go into Phillip and Belles apartment. He gets straight to the point. He wants both pregnancies to be terminated right now! Belle says, Absolutely not! Shawn says that there is no way hes going to let that happen. Mimi and Phillip are stunned.
