Written By Kristy
Steve comes into the room to tell Billie that Stephanie and Max are alive, but that no one would tell him anything else. He is very upset and Billie grabs his arm and tells him that shes going to take him to the hospital. He cant go. He says that he wants to, but he just cant show up there.
Stephanie is wheeled into the emergency room with Kayla running in behind her. A nurse stops her, but Kayla tells her that she is her mother and wants to go in with her. The nurse asks her to let the doctor examine her before she sees Stephanie. Her father Shawn comes into the emergency room and tells Kayla that Max is banged up, but will be fine. He asks about Stephanie, but Kayla doesnt know anything.
Lexie is with Tek, who has just told her of Abes deception regarding their relationship. Lexie cant believe that Abe would question her involvement with the threats against the Bradys or with Eve Michaels murder. He tells her that is why Abe has been spending time with her. She still believes that Abe wouldnt do this to her, but Tek tells her to ask Abe for herself.
Roman has given Abe the contents of everything Abby found in Maxs garage in plastic bags. This obviously turns the investigation around and eliminates Lexie as a suspect. Roman also thinks this may eliminate Patrick Lockhart as a suspect as well. He knows Bo will not be happy about this. He also tells Abe that he can cancel his date with Lexie now that they have eliminated her, but Abe just stands there. Roman can tell that he is having a hard time with this and feels like Abe does want to spend time with Lexie anyway.
In the court room, Patricks lawyer asks the judge to throw out Bos perjury testimony and his tainted evidence. Bo speaks out saying that his evidence wasnt tainted, but the judge orders him to keep quiet. His lawyer continues, and says that Bo has a personal vendetta against her client. She feels like Patrick is being railroaded and Bo has allowed his personal life to get in the way of his public responsibility, but the judge tells her that those are very strong accusations and tells her that she had better be able to back up her story. The judge wants to know more about this vendetta with the Bradys, and Patricks lawyer tells her that it involves Bos wife.
At the hospital, in Belles room, the doctor tells Phillip and Shawn that the only way to save Belle would be to terminate the pregnancy. Phillip wonders if the medication that Belle had refused would be able to help, but the doctor tells them that her situation has worsened; the longer she is pregnant, the greater the risk. If Belle keeps the baby, she will die, and the odds of having a baby at this point are very low. She leaves the room for Phillip to make a decision. He sits down beside her and tells an unconscious Belle that he promised her he would do everything to protect the baby, but he cant risk loosing her. He is holding the forms in his hand that, when signed, will give the hospital permission to terminate the pregnancy. Shawn watches from behind.
Lexie asks Tek how Abe could betray her like this; how could he think she could be involved in murder. Tek tells her that he went to Abe about the threats the other day, asking for protection for her, but Abe told him that she was probably making up the story about the threats to her. He tells her that Abe has been gaming her for months. She says that she can understand him wanting to get back at her, but she can never forgive him for using Theo like this. She is upset, and asks him to excuse her; she has a date with her husband and has to go get ready.
The judge asks Ms. Reece, Patricks lawyer, if she is saying that Patrick is totally innocent in all this. Ms. Reece agrees that this is her testimony, and that all Patrick did was comfort Mrs. Brady at a time when she and detective Brady were estranged; he took care of her when her husband did not. She says that Bo was eat up with jealousy and set out to destroy her client. The D.A. objects, but Ms. Reece asks the judge if her client can speak for himself. She allows it, reminding the D.A. that this is only a hearing, not a trial. Patrick stands up and tells the judge that he is sorry that Mrs. Brady has to be dragged into this, but its unavoidable. He says that Hope is carrying his baby and it made Bo jealous and crazy. He goes on to say that Bo told him that he would make him pay for all this. He accuses Bo of planting the evidence in his house and tells the judge that he wanted to spend the rest of his life with Hope, and would never do anything to jeopardize his future with her or their baby. Hope watches as the judge turns to Bo, offering him equal time to defend Patricks accusations. The D.A. stands up to remind the judge that Bo isnt the one on trial here today, and that he is one of Salems finest detectives; he would never tamper with evidence. Bo tells the judge that it is true; he doesnt like Patrick at all, but he would never frame an innocent man for murder. He says that he will take a polygraph if she wishes, but that the evidence speaks for itself. He says that there is nothing to suggest that Patrick isnt guilty. Roman has just walked into the court room and, speaking out loud, says that isnt entirely true. He walks toward the front of the room.
Shawn and Willow wake up in the bed together. She tells him that this feels special because shes never woke up with one of her Johns before. He is caught a little off guard by her comment, and he wonders if she thinks of him the same way she does about the other guys that she has sex with. She reassures him that he is different; he is her angel. She cant believe everything he has done for her; helping her get off the street, and finding her a job. Shawn thinks that she is smart and fun to be around, and feels like he has found a great new friend. She asks him if thats the way he thinks of her, and he tells her yes, while wondering if that is a problem. Its not, but shes just not had any real friends since she ran away from home. She rubs his face as they talk and then she starts kissing him passionately, asking him if friends do this.
Hope comes into the Pub to meet Bo for breakfast. She tells him that she is very worried about Shawn. Bo wants to talk to him, but Hope feels that it may be better if she is the one that talked to him. Bo understands, but he wants Shawn to know that he is there for him also. Hope agrees to let Bo, but asks him to be gentle with Shawn because he already feels like hes lost everything that he has ever believed in. Bo is determined to prove otherwise to him, but hopes he hasnt gotten himself into any more trouble since last night. Patrick walks into the Pub and straight over to Bo and Hope. He and Bo bicker back and forth for a minute, and then he tells Bo that he is here to speak to hope.
Lauren, Mimis surrogate, walks up behind Bonnie in the hospital. She tells her she has decided that allowing Bonnie to raise Mimis baby is the best thing for the baby.

Sami wakes up and comes out of her room. Lucas is trying to throw her a guilt trip, saying that he is sure she had a good nights sleep while he had to sleep on the couch.

She is very upset with the stunt he pulled in front of Will last night, and promises him that if he ever does that again, he will be out of her apartment for good.
Patrick wants to talk to Hope alone, but Bo isnt going to leave her. Hope tells him that she really needs to talk to Patrick, and she wants him to go see Shawn; he needs him more right now. Bo agrees, and gets up to leave, warning Patrick to watch it. Patrick sits down with Hope and tells her that he does not want to upset her, and thats why he has stayed away from her since the hearing. He wants to make a decision about their future, and he wants the three of them to be together. He tells her that he is prepared to do whatever it takes to make that happen.
Mimi walks up to a very chipper Bonnie. She tells her that she was here for an appointment with the director of human resources for a job. Unfortunately, there was no job available, and Bonnie offers her a job at Alices. Mimi says that she needs a job making real money, to which, Bonnie replies that she should have hung onto the Kiriakis baby the surrogate is carrying. Mimi tells her that baby was a mistake, and that baby is part of her history and she never wants to talk about it again.

Chelsea comments on the way E.J. ran out, saying that you wouldve thought she asked him if he was going to be her new grandpa. Kate plays it off, but Chelsea congratulates her anyway on landing such a sexy guy. She tells Kate that she is a little confused though; she thought Kate paid him to do Sami so that she couldnt do Lucas.

She also says that she doesnt believe that there is a rule saying that she cant enjoy him even after he becomes a couple with Sami.

(Another guilt trip) Sami assures Lucas that she can date E.J. and still be there for Will. Lucas continues to try and make Sami feel guilty, saying that its okay because Will is used to be put in second or third place anyway.

Lucas definitely doesnt look happy about it.
Willow is finishing up showing Mimi around the restaurant. One thing leads to another and Willow ends up telling Mimi that she was a prostitute. Willow explains that she ran away from home and had to do whatever she could to survive; shes not proud of it though. Mimi says they have a lot in common. Not that she was a prostitute, but that she also lived on the streets. Mimi tells her that her husband left her and that he was in love with someone else when he married her. She also tells her that she had a hand in their separation. Mimi asks Willow how she made it to Chez Rouge from the streets.

Shawn realizes that he should have never driven the car through Victors house, but asks Bo how he (Victor) or Mimi could have kept something like this from him. He asks Bo why Belle had to loose their baby. Bo wishes that he could help him sort all of this out, but all he can tell him is that he isnt alone in all of this, and he tells him that he loves him and will always be here for him no matter what. Shawn asks him if he is here for him the way that he was there for Zack, or the way that he was there for Chelsea; he just wants to know what to expect.

Patrick wants Hope to go away with him for a couple of days, and just long enough to get away from the things going on in Salem for a while. He wants to give her a chance to think clearly about what she wants for herself and their child. He also wants them to take separate rooms so there is no pressure; the point isnt for them to make love, its to reconnect. He tries to convince her by telling her that they owe this to themselves so they can make sure that whatever decision they make is really thought through. She says that he is right about that, but if they do go away together, she thinks it should be a place that isnt full of memories. He recommends Chicago, but Hope tells him that Shawn is going through a really rough time and she isnt sure she should leave him right now. He asks her to think about it, but in the meantime, hes going to do a little research on Chicagos restaurants. He gets up and kisses her on the cheek as he leaves the Pub.
Sami and E.J. finish their kiss and Sami points out that Lucas is standing behind them. E.J. comes inside and Lucas leaves to do a little work. He reminds Sami to pick Will up after basketball practice and not to get too distracted and forget as he walks out the door. Sami is still frustrated with Lucas and slams the door behind him and stomps back through the apartment. E.J. wonders why she came into the office looking for him last night. She wanted to apologize to him about the whole Will/Lucas fiasco last night. He understands what they did, not that he excuses it, but he can see what they were fighting for. She promises that it will never happen again. He makes a joke about dressing up as the Village People the next time so as not to be recognized, but Sami stops him. She says that when she said it would not happen again, she meant she cant go out with him again.
Kate admits to Chelsea that her decision to keep Bo and Hope apart is very ambitious on her part. Chelsea says that is why she came to the best for help. Kate tells her that she is so strong and driven that she reminds her of herself when she was her age. Chelsea asks if that means Kate will help her, and Kate tells her that she should be prepared for this to become very ugly because shes going to be starting a war. Chelsea says that she is prepared and she doesnt care as long as she wins. Kate asks her what her parents have in common, to which Chelsea answers, herself. Kate agrees and tells her that SHE is the largest weapon in her arsenal and she has to learn how to use herself to shake them up, to get their attention, and force them back together again. Chelsea has a vision of Sami telling her that her grandmother and mother was a whore, and that there is no reason why Chelsea wouldnt follow in their footsteps. She smiles, and Kate notices, saying that it looks like she must have come up with something. She asks what it is, but Chelsea cant tell her yet. She leaves.
Bo apologizes for blowing up at Shawn when he came in the room and found him and Willow together. He wasnt expecting to see that, but knows that he needs a place to live. Bo suggests Shawn stay on the Fancy Face and he will stay in a room above the Pub. Shawn agrees as long as there are no conditions. Bo says that there is one condition; he does not take HER out past the last buoy. Shawn smiles and says that he can live with that. Bo hands over the keys and Shawn thanks him. As he gets ready to leave, Bo tells Shawn that he is here for him always.
Abe comes into the Pub and Hope stops him. She asks him to sit down because she values his opinion and needs some advice. She reminds him that she is pregnant with Patricks baby, and pretty soon, she is going to have to make some powerful decisions; whether Patrick will be a part of this babys life. She knows he and Bo are friends, and does not want to put him in an awkward position. He reminds her that she is his friend as well. She says that Bo thinks Patrick is a criminal, but she wonders if she is wrong to trust Patrick. Abe says that Patricks arrest record is based on a lot of evidence which appeared credible, but he says the fact that she is even having this conversation with him makes him realize that she must have her own doubts about Patrick. He tells her that not guilty is not the same as innocent; somebody killed Eve and somebody is targeting the Bradys. Until they find out who that is, everybody is a suspect.
Patrick is on the phone with someone, and he tells them that he has their money. He wants to know what he should do with it.
Lucas comes into Kates office and tells her that he received her message and wants to know what is so important. She says that she heard about his living arrangement. She cant believe that he is shacking up with Sami. He gets angry with her, but tells her that he is sleeping on the couch so he can be close to Will. She points out that his apartment is just right across the hall, but he says it is filled with too many memories of Carrie. He gave up the apartment. Kate tells him that she knows what kind of hold Sami has over him, but he doesnt want to hear it from her. She thinks, even though hes moving in there for Will, it wont be too long before he falls for Sami again. He tells her that he knows exactly what he is doing, and hes doing it for Will.
Sami explains to E.J. that her son needs her; he ran away from home and that is a cry for help. She says if that means putting aside her personal life, that is just what she will have to do. He understands her concern, and her need to put Will first, but not at the exclusion of everything else. He tells her that Lucas is manipulating her and shes letting him win. She disagrees, but E.J. tells her that shes not being honest with herself. He thinks she still loves Lucas, or that shes afraid of being happy. He says that she still punishes herself everyday for blackmailing Lexie, and setting up Carrie and Lucas. She says she knows it sounds crazy that Sami Brady would choose motherhood over dating a handsome successful guy like him, but she says that its time for her to grow up and take responsibility by doing the right thing. He says that he should leave, and as he heads out the door, Sami chases him and tells him that maybe when Will is over this phase, they can see each other. She still wants to be his friend, and she hugs him. He pushes her away, telling her that he thinks he should leave. After Sami closes the door, E.J. smiles to himself and walks away.
As Willow goes over a few things with Mimi about waiting tables, Maggie comes out to tell her that she has a phone call. Its Shawn, and he tells her that he found a place to live; his fathers boat. He asks her to join him, and she asks if she could bring a friend who has had a really rough day. He was hoping to spend some time alone, but she feels so bad for this girl. She says that once she is feeling better, they can send her home and then they can be alone together. He agrees and she hangs up the phone. She then tells Mimi that was her angel, but Mimi could tell by the look on her face. Willow tells Mimi that he wants to spend time with her on his boat, and then says that she should tag along with them. She tells Mimi that if they are going to be friends, she wants her to meet this guy. Mimi agrees to go.
Chelsea is walking, no stumbling, in high heels down the pier, dressed up as a hooker. She sets herself up against a mail box trying to look sexy.
Bo comes back into the Pub and tells her about the talk he and Shawn had. He thinks they made progress today, and tells her that he was sleeping on a cot at Maxs garage and that he gave him the keys to Fancy Face; Bo will be moving in here at the Pub. Hope wonders if Shawn being alone on the boat is a good idea, but Bo reminds her that Shawn grew up on the boat and he will be comfortable there. Hope says she is going to go check on Belle, but stops to tell Bo thanks for just being him. She leaves as Abe walks up to Bo. Abe tells him that it has been a while since he saw him smile, and Bo says that its been a while since he had a reason to smile.
Patrick hands an envelope full of money to Dr. Bader and she puts it in her pocket. She tells him that he should be aware that just because she altered the initial test results to make it appear that he is the father of Hopes baby; its not a done deal. There will be a number of tests she will go through which could show that Bo is the real father. He says that there will not be any more tests because Hope will not be here to have them; they will be leaving Salem for good.
Previews for Monday:
Steve: Okay, cheeseburgers for everybody.
Stephanie: It's happening, mom.
Kayla: It's a cheeseburger.
Stephanie: It's the beginning.
Willow: You guys know each other?
Mimi: Meet my husband.
Lexie: Nothing is ever going to come between us again.
Tek: Think again
Billie: Oh, my god. Chelsea!
Chelsea: Hi, mom.
Stephanie is being examined by the doctor, who is ordering tests for her as soon as she is stable. Outside her room, Kayla gives the medal Daddy Shawn had left for Stephanie before the race, which she forgot. He tells her to hold onto it for Stephanies safe recovery. He leaves to check on Max again. As Kayla stands there, Max walks out in a hospital robe. He is very upset and Kayla urges him to go back to his room and lie down. He tells Kayla that he is so sorry, but she hugs him and reassures him that this isnt his fault.
Billie urges Steve to go to the hospital, but he reminds her of the things Stephanie said to him before the race. He feels like it would be too upsetting to her if he showed up there. Billie tells him that Stephanie only said those things to him because he upset Kayla, but reminds him that she is injured and this is a totally different situation. She says that it is times like this when a little girl needs her father. He questions what kind of father he really is by saying that it was because of him that she went out on the track angry anyway. He paces the floor and can only guess the terrible things that were going through her mind while she was driving 200 miles per hour. He is afraid that he is the reason Stephanie lost control of her car, and breaks down when he thinks she could die and he could possibly be the cause of it.
Phillip signs the papers to terminate the pregnancy as Shawn watches from behind. Phillip tells Shawn that he knows this is his baby, but he says that he has to take care of his wife. Shawn completely understands and tells Phillip that he would do the same thing. The doctor comes into the room and asks Phillip if he has made a decision. He says nothing and hands her the signed paperwork. She calls in a nurse and orders her to take Belle to the delivery room.
Abe has arrived at home, and Lexie opens the door. He is acting like he is in a very good mood and apologizes for being late. Lexie walks over to him and slaps him across the face.
Billie is firm with Steve when she tells him that Stephanie did not wreck because of what happened between the two of them before the race. She says that Maxs car blew up in front of her, making it impossible for her to avoid. He remembers the last thing she said to him before the race; he was the father that was never there. Billie tries to reassure him that he didnt know he had a wife and a child when Stephanie was growing up, and that its not his fault. She says that it was almost the same situation that she went through with Chelsea. Steve agrees, but knows that Billie also still blames herself for that too. She stares for a minute, and tells him that he is right; she does still blame herself. Steve wants to do the right thing and be the father Stephanie needs, but he says that he just cant do it. He says that Stephanie not only wants him to be her father, she wants him to get back with her mother. Billie asks him why he decided to stay in Salem. She answers her own question by saying that he wanted to fight for his family. He feels like they would be better off without him anyway, but Billie disagrees and tells him that Kayla and Stephanie want him in their life whether he remembers them or not. She says that they want to know him, and asks him what he wants. She puts him on the spot when she asks him if he had rather spend the rest of his life wondering what might have been. He doesnt.
The judge has announced to the court that Roman has come in with documentation bearing on this case. She has had time to examine it and is allowing it into evidence. Roman addresses the court and says that there was a very serious accident today between two cars at the Salem Grand Prix. He says that they determined that one of the cars was tampered with, and during their investigation they were led to items in the drivers garage; a glove, a scorched toy car, and a note. The judge asks Roman to read the note, and he does. The note read, Dear Suckers, you have the wrong man in jail. The person who killed officer Michaels and tormenting the Bradys family is still at large. The gun and shoes found in Patrick Lockharts house were planted. He has been framed. Signed, A Friend. Bo stands up and tells Roman that was just a note and anyone could have written it. The judge immediately tells Bo that he is out of order. Roman tells Bo that the note also included some particulars which led them to forged receipts, fake gun registrations, and the like. He says that they were able to trace the origins of the gun and shoes found in Patricks closet, and have verified that the gun that killed officer Michaels was not purchased by Patrick. He also says that he shoes did not belong to Patrick either, just as he has been claiming all along. He says that the note also predicted that when a certain car in the race reached 200 miles per hour, it would explode. Roman says that they are now certain that whoever left this note, while Patrick was behind bars, is the same person who killed Eve Michaels and causing trouble for the Bradys.

She knows this, but this is something she cant think about right now. Again she tells him she is sorry, and then she walks away.
