Sami waits for word on Lucas condition as Roman rushes into the hospital. She frantically tells him that Lucas is in shock, has hypothermia, and a broken leg, but he will make it. She tells him of their plans to go to Green Mountain skiing, but their car broke down and they had to find shelter in an abandoned cabin. The roof collapsed and a beam fell on Lucas legs; she tried to call for help but there was no service. She tells him she ran to the road to find help, and then she has a vision of getting into a car and seeing EJ, but she tells Roman that she couldnt find anyone. She says that she went back to the cabin and Lucas was unconscious. She was so afraid he wasnt going to make it so she figured out a way to get the beam off him. She has another vision of herself and EJ arguing as EJ pulls the beam off Lucas legs. She tells Roman that she wrapped him up in a blanket and pulled him to the road where a trucker stopped and drove them to the hospital. Roman says, Sami, that is the most incredible story Ive ever heard. Sami thinks he is calling her a liar.
Abe and Lexie have a dinner at Chez Rouge and Lexie just picks at her food. She doesnt feel that she deserved to get the third degree from Roman, but Abe explains that EJ was sent here to kill John and she is their only witness. She asks, What if I wasnt a witness Abe. What if I didnt actually see EJ shoot John? He sits back in his chair and tells her that he would want to know why she told Roman that she did see him shoot John then. Maggie is in front scheduling reservations as Chelsea walks in and greets her. Maggie assumes Chelsea wants a table, but when she tells her that she didnt come here to eat; Maggie knows she must want something. Chelsea tells her that she wants a job.
Billie comes home calling out for someone; anyone, but she is there alone. She takes off her coat and goes through the mail until she finds a letter from Steve. She opens it up and sits down on the couch to read:Dear, Billie. Saying I didnt know what to say was lame, even for me. You deserve so much better, so if you havent already burned this without reading it, Im going to try to answer your questions. Tell you as best as I can what you meant to me.
Steve looks at the devil card and his eye rolls up in the back of his head and he falls faint to the floor just as Kayla comes around the corner. She runs to him and calls out his name.
Nick and Abby walk together and she wants to know what he is going to do about Chelsea. He believes that Chelsea will hate him forever if she ever finds out he is Lonely Splicer, but if he tells her the truth himself, maybe she will look at him differently. They walk into the Café as Nick tells her that Chelseas bad girl attitude is just an act. Abby urges him to tell her the truth because she adores him. Nick corrects her, telling her that she adores Lonely Splicer, not him. Abby reminds him that HE is Lonely Splicer and believes Chelsea will come around. Nick knows Chelsea wants the book to match the cover and thinks she could never love a guy like him.
Maggie questions why Chelsea would want a job here, and she tells her that it is because of this guy she met over the internet, and because of him, shes changing. She talks about how great this guy is and the fact that he likes her for who she is; that makes her want to be a better person. Chelsea also tells her that she wants this job for her mother too, who has been devastated by her recent break up. She thought if they put their money together they could get a place of their own and start fresh. Chelsea tells Maggie that Abby told her that the pyro-hooker got thrown in jail and she figured she would need someone to cover her shifts. Maggie says, Now thats the Chelsea I know and love.
Billie continues to read Steves letter: I know its hard to explain what I dont know myself but Ill try. The guy you met before I got my memory back wasnt the real me, but the feelings we had, they were real. You are a good woman who took a chance on me and I let you down. Im sorry for that. I dont know if telling you this will make it better or worse, but if things had turned out different, if I was still that guy you used to beat at darts, you were good for me Billie. You helped me look toward the future instead of always wondering what Id left behind. Parts of my life are still missing and I might not ever remember everything, but Ill never forget the time we spent together. She folds the letter up as she cries and says, Neither will I.
Kayla pleads with Steve to wake up and he finally does. He wonders where they are and she tells him that they are in the hospital and why they are here. He cant remember anything, and as she helps him to his feet, he asks her to tell him what happened. She is adamant that she needs to get a doctor to examine him, but he wants her to do it.
Roman promises Sami that he wasnt calling her a liar. He just said it was an incredible story and he still believes it to be. He says that she saved Lucas life and he is very proud of her. She is having flashbacks of EJ touching her and she tells Roman that she did what she had to do. Roman knows of stories where people have gained super human strength in a time of crisis to help their loved ones, but she stops him, saying that it was a horrible experience and she just wants to forget about it. A doctor comes up and calls out for Roman to give him a little of his time so they can talk. The doctor whispers something into Romans ear, and Sami believes it to be something about Lucas. She is frantic and wants him to tell her what is happening. Roman says it isnt about Lucas, and tells her that John was shot tonight. Sami freaks and she automatically knows it was EJ that shot him. Roman tries to explain that the doctors are doing everything possible to save him but Sami is worried about Marlena and wants to know where she is. He tells her that she is in the chapel and Sami screams at Roman, asking him how he could let him escape their trap and get away. Roman asks how she knows EJ got away. He wants an answer and she tells him if he had captured him, he wouldnt be standing here with her; he would be at the station grilling him. Roman tells her that it doesnt work that way, but if John doesnt make it Sami stops him and warns him not to talk like that; John and her mother just got married and everything was going to be perfect for them. Roman knows this and he walks over to get some coffee. Sami wants to know what happened and he tells her that Bo was supposed to meet EJ at the boat house but Lockhart kidnapped Hope and had her held at gun point, so, he sent Bo off to save Hope and let John go in his place. He tells Sami that Hope is fine and Patrick is in custody. Sami says, Dad EJ made him do it. Roman believes that and says they knew he was working for the Dimeras. He knows he should never have allowed John to do this, but Sami tells him that she is sure John will be fine; he will wake up and identify EJ as the person who shot him. Roman tells her that Lexie is a witness to the shooting. Samis facial expression changes with this news. .
Abe thinks Lexie is afraid and thats why she is changing her story about what happened to John. She tells him that she could loose everyone she loves, but he promises that he will protect her and never let that happen. She asks if she didnt actually see EJ shoot John, could they still put together a case against him. He tells her that she is all they have got.
Abby receives a phone call from Maggie and she tells her that Chelsea came in there today looking for a job; as her friend, she wants to know if Abby thinks she should give her a chance. Abby tells her that she thinks its her decision, and she understands she may be afraid to take the risks, but she believes she should give her a chance. Maggie thanks her and they hang up. Abby is surprised with Chelsea and says its amazing to see how far she will go to impress Lonely Splicer. She tells Nick that he should stop playing games and tell Chelsea the truth. He reluctantly agrees that it is the right thing to do and says that he is going to call her and have her meet him at her house later tonight. Abby thinks that, at the very least, he will finally know where he stands with her.
Kayla brings Steve a glass of water, but he thinks she is making too much out of this. She wants him to understand that he passed out and this could be serious. She tells him that he has been through a lot and she wants to schedule him for a complete physical, but in the mean time, she wants to check his vitals. He says no, but she begs him to please do this for her. He agrees, but only for her. She leaves and tells him to stay right there. He takes another look at the tarot card.
Sami wants to know what Lexie was doing at the boat house, but Roman says he will explain that to her later. Right now he needs her help finding EJ. He tells her that EJ stole Lexies car and somehow he got through a road block that was very close to where she and Lucas were stranded. She has another flashback of talking to the officer at the road block that night and then asks Roman how he thinks EJ got through. He tells her that the officers took the license plate numbers of every car that went through, and one of them was Lexies, but she wasnt in there. He is hoping she saw a car fitting the description of Lexies that night. He just needs something/anything that can help them figure out which way he went. Sami struggles, but tells him she is sorry, she only saw the trucker that night. She cries, but he calms her down by telling her that he is so proud of her. She jumps in his arms and he holds her.
Lexie is concerned about Abes visit with the surgeon today. He tells her that the doctor gave him medication to keep the pressure down and thats all he can do unless he is willing to try another transplant operation. She asks how he feels about that and he says that there is a chance that it wouldnt work. He just doesnt know how many times he can put himself through the pain and disappointment. She tells him that only he can decide that, but she is behind him no matter what he decides to do. She does think he should at least think about giving it another try. Lexie knows that going blind is scary, but he says there is something that scares him even more; having her take care of him. He says that hed rather die.
Maggie tells Chelsea that she is short handed tonight and she is willing to give her an opportunity to see how she fits in. Maggie wants her to understand that this is a trial. Chelsea says, Yeah. To see if I like the job. Maggie corrects her and tells her that this trial is to see if she can do the job, get along with the rest of the staff, to see if the customers like her, and if she really can put the customers first. Chelsea promises she can do this. Maggie informs her to go to the back and talk to Margaret and to tell her to show her the drill. Chelsea thanks Maggie as she walks off and tells her that she wont regret it.
Billie holds Steves letter in her hands while she calls Kate and leaves a message on her phone. She is crying and telling her about Steve regaining his memory and choosing to stay with Kayla. She says that she hopes they will be happy, and then changes her mind. She says that she is tired of always having to say the right thing and settling for scraps and always ending up alone. She asks Kate to call her because she really needs someone to talk to. She hangs up the phone and walks to a cabinet in the kitchen. She opens it and pulls out a bottle of liquor. She starts to take a drink, but sets it down.
Steve picks up the tarot card and has another attack as Kayla comes through the door. He hurriedly sticks it in his pocket and stares at her. She notices that he has a strange look on his face but he promises he is fine. She tells him the doctors are all too busy and she decides to take his vitals in another room.
Lexie is upset that Abe had rather die than to have her take care of him. She reminds him that she is his wife, but before she can say anything else, Chelsea walks up to serve them. Lexie is surprised to see her working here and asks her what she is doing here. Chelsea tells them that she is working here now and hands Abe the check. Lexie notices that he is having trouble reading the check so she asks Chelsea to leave them alone.
Billie smokes a cigarette and drinks while sitting on her couch. The doorbell rings so she finishes her glass and hides it and the bottle behind the pillows on the couch before going to the door. She stumbles as she gets up and finally opens the door to see Nick standing there. He asks for Chelsea, but she isnt here. Billie invites him in anyway and he notices that something isnt right with her. As he sits down on the couch, he finds the bottle of liquor stuck behind the pillows and says that Chelsea told him she didnt drink and that she was also in a program. Billie smokes and sniffles and tells Nick that she doesnt drink, but tonight is a special occasion. Billie goes to the kitchen as Nick stands behind the doorway. She tells him that she is in a program and warns him not to tell Chelsea about this. He asks again what is wrong with her but she thinks he is too young to understand. He asks her to try him anyway because people have always told him he is wise beyond his years. He thinks he is experienced enough to know she is plastered and she breaks down and starts crying. He wants to call Chelsea, but she freaks out and begs him not to tell her. The phone rings and it is Chelsea telling her that Nick is supposed to meet her there tonight. She wants her to cancel with him and tell him that she will meet him later. Billie whispers and tells her that he is already here, but Chelsea tells her to get rid of him and then hangs up. Billie tells Nick that Chelsea is going to have to reschedule when she notices that he is reading the letter Steve wrote to her. She jerks it out of his hands telling him it isnt polite to read other peoples letters. He apologizes and then she informs him that she isnt a looser.
Abe sits at the table with his hands over his face. He couldnt read the check and that is what he was talking about; her taking care of him. She gets up and pulls him close to her telling him of all the times he has sacrificed for her. She reminds him that it isnt a sacrifice when it comes to taking care of someone you love. He holds her and tells her that he thanks God for her everyday.
Kayla examines Steve in a room at the hospital and notices his blood pressure is a little high. He isnt making the check up so easy and she jokes and tells him that he is such a baby. He tells her he is feeling faint, which concerns her, but he then tells her that he needs a little Kaylaoxygen. She smiles at him and pulls him into a kiss.
Nick tells Billie that he doesnt think she is a looser and apologizes again for reading the letter. She says its okay because the whole town will soon know anyway. He comments on Steves real feelings for her and she tells him that he is so young and romantic. He thinks she is too, but she doesnt feel that way anymore. She starts to cry again and tells him that he doesnt care about her situation anyway. He disagrees and tells her that the two of them arent that different. He turns to her and tells her that he knows how she feels; there is this part of yourself that you really want to show to someone, but only someone that is really going to understand, and look into your eyes, and know who you really are. She asks how he knows all that and he tells her its because he feels the same way. They stand face to face and she puts her hand on the side of his face and says, God help you.
Kayla wants Steve to understand that this isnt a game and people just dont pass out for no reason at all. He thinks he is fine now, but she wants him to know that she buried him once and she doesnt want to go through that again. He knows that she dont want to go through that again and he promises to follow her orders and have a full neurological workup here at the hospital. She tells him to wait at the nurses desk while she makes the appointment. She leaves the room and he pulls out the tarot card again.
Billie sits down on the couch and Nick tells her that, even though Steve is a terrific guy, he isnt the one for her. He tells her that she is a beautiful woman who will find someone else, but if she keeps feeling sorry for herself .She interrupts him and asks what difference it makes because at the end of the day, she still comes home alone when .Nick interrupts this time and finishes out her sentence with, All you want is for someone to hold you. She stares at him and they lean closer to one another and then they kiss. She puts her arms around him and he pulls her closer.
