Sami’s apartment:

Lucas and Sami are kissing in front of a roaring fire. Lucas picks up Sami’s plaque to admire it but Sami can’t believe that she really got such an award. Lucas assures her that the whole ceremony was real and that Sami has really changed. Lucas tells Sami that he can now trust her with his life and it makes Sami so uncomfortable that she backs away from Lucas. Lucas asks what is wrong but Sami claims it’s nothing. Lucas complains that Sami is lying to him again.

Penthouse:

Kayla brings out a tray of tea for her and Marlena. Marlena comments on the switch her two daughters have made from their usual behaviors. Sami, who is usually getting into trouble accepted an award today and Belle, usually the good daughter, is on the run tonight. Kayla assures Marlena that Steve is on his way to Belle and Shawn and will know what to do to help.

Abandoned Church:

Belle and Shawn wait for Steve to arrive. Belle asks Shawn about Claire’s stuffed bunny but he doesn’t know where it is. They spot a delivery truck pulling up and wonder who would be delivering packages to the church. Shawn spots Steve stepping out of the truck and relays that to Belle. Steve comes inside and tells Shawn that it’s better if he doesn’t know how Steve was able to get a delivery truck.

Outside in the snow, Philip finds Claire’s stuffed bunny.

Sami’s apartment:

Sami now sits with her back to Lucas on the floor by the fire. Sami’s face shows her confusion and relief when Lucas assumes she’s upset over Philip barging into the pub and accusing everyone of helping Claire be kidnapped. Sami allows Lucas to think that’s what was troubling her. Sami insists to Lucas that she had nothing to do with Belle and Shawn running off with Claire and Lucas assures her that he never thought that. Sami jokes about how odd it felt not to automatically blamed for the situation, especially by Kate. Lucas thinks Kate’s speech in front of everyone about wanting a truce with Sami is a sign of a fresh start. Sami isn’t so sure. Lucas asks Sami to meet Kate halfway. Lucas finds Sami’s agreement sexy and Sami jokes that Dr. Freud would have something to say about that. Sami laughs as Lucas kisses her in between words and they continue to make out on the couch.

Penthouse:

Kayla suggests that Marlena get some rest but Marlena refuses to sleep until she hears some news. Steve calls Kayla and lets her know he’s with Belle and Shawn and they are getting ready to leave. Kayla relays the news to Marlena. Kayla asks Steve to keep in touch but Steve warns that once on the road, he won’t be able to use the same phone. Kayla urges Steve to be careful and hangs up. Marlena begs to know everything Steve said and Kayla relays that Steve is with Shawn and Belle and that they are fine. Marlena takes comfort in knowing that Steve won’t let anything bad happen. Kayla decides to step away and check in with Stephanie. Marlena holds a picture of John close and curls up on the couch.

Abandoned Church:

Steve notices footprints in the snow and realizes that they are not alone.

Belle and Shawn gather up their things to leave but Philip enters the church intent on keeping them from leaving.

Sami’s apartment:

Sami and Lucas have stripped off their clothes and are in the throes of making love. Sami stops to ask if Lucas is really happy with her right now. Lucas insists that he is and doesn’t understand why Sami would be asking. Sami is sure that once all the accolades and praise dies down, she’ll end up going back to her old ways that usually tear their family apart.

Penthouse:

Kayla returns to the living room still on the phone with Stephanie filling her in on Belle and Shawn’s adventure. Kayla lowers her voice and ends the call when she notices that Marlena has fallen asleep. Kayla gently takes John’s picture out of Marlena’s arms and covers her with a blanket. Marlena calls out John’s name in her sleep.

Abandoned church:

Shawn demands to know how Philip found them and Philip gloats about how easily it was to force the location out of Mimi. Belle demands to know what Philip did to Mimi but Philip is vague in his answer. Belle wants to know why Philip is doing this to them when they’ve always been friends but Philip scoffs at the mention of friends insisting that Belle was his life even though he was the only one to know Belle still wanted Shawn. Shawn accuses Philip of simply wanting revenge but Philip insists that he only cares now about Claire. Shawn tries to walk right past Philip and leave with Belle and Claire but Philip stops them gloating about how the cops are already on their way. Belle vows that Philip will have to kill her before he ever gets Claire and takes off out of the back of the church with Claire. Philip tries to go after her but Shawn stops him and they struggle.

Philip and Shawn continue to fight until Philip knocks Shawn to the ground where he is unable to fight back. Philip looms over Shawn and repeats Shawn’s previous gloat about Claire being his daughter. Philip looks up and realizes Belle has been standing there watching them. Philip yells at Belle to stop looking at him with disappointment because she brought this all on herself. Philip walks up to Belle and holds out his hands for Claire but Belle turns her back to Philip refusing to give up Claire. Philip is so preoccupied with trying to get Claire out of Belle’s arms that he doesn’t notice Shawn starting to get up.

Penthouse:

Marlena wakes with a start sensing that someone is in the room. Marlena hears John’s voice calling for her but she can’t see him. John yells that he’s right here and needs her help. Malrena turns and sees the open balcony doors and is sure that John is out on the balcony. Marlena steps out onto the balcony but instead of the cool night, she is suddenly surrounded by pink fog and drapes that seem to trap her in one spot. John continues to call for Marlena and she fights against the drapes trying to find a way to break through to John. As Marlena makes some progress, she can see John standing just beyond the last few drapes and asks what he wants to tell her. Marlena asks if it was about Steve but wakes with a start from this dream just as she was reaching John. Marlena calls out for John and Kayla comes rushing back to assure Marlena that she was only having a nightmare. Marlena insists that John was here trying to tell her something and looks around the room for him.

Sami’s apartment:

Lucas insists that Sami has changed and is a different person now. Sami asks if Lucas would still be so loving towards her had she not been the one to save his life. Lucas insists that he’s always loved Sami and makes her laugh when he claims that it takes every ounce of strength he has not to corner Sami and make love to her every time he sees her. They resume kissing but suddenly Sami has to run into the bathroom.

Abandoned church:

Claire begins to fuss as Belle yells at Philip to get away from her. Philip insists that Claire is coming home with him. Philip grabs Belle’s shoulder but Steve sneaks up behind him and knocks him out. Belle rushes over to check on Shawn and he insists he is fine though in obvious pain. Steve wants to hurry up and leave before Philip wakes up but Belle is worried that Philip could really be hurt. Steve insists that Philip will be fine and repeats his desire to leave but Shawn insists on staying behind for a moment. Belle heads out to the car with Claire. Shawn wants to take care of Philip and asks for Steve’s help.

Shawn stows Philip in the basement where Max and Mimi had been locked up while Steve holds open the trap door. Shawn climbs back out and he and Steve rush out. Philip comes and yells to be let out.

Penthouse:

Kayla brings Marlena a glass of water. Marlena insists that she wasn’t dreaming and is sure that John is still trying to get a message to her. Kayla asks Marlena to explain and Marlena admits that she believes the message to be about Steve.

Steve’s truck:

Steve is driving while Belle and Shawn sit next to him with Claire in Belle’s lap. Belle complains that they don’t have Claire in a car seat and Steve apologizes for not thinking of that. Shawn notices that Steve is shutting his eyes tight but Steve insists that he’s fine.

Sami’s apartment:

Lucas is on the phone with Roman telling him that they haven’t heard anything and will call if they do. Sami comes out of the bathroom apologizing for suddenly not feeling very well and asks about the phone call. Lucas tells her that Roman was calling to see if they’d seen Lexie because Lexie is now missing. Sami is shocked by this news. Lucas relays to Sami how Abe found out that Lexie was covering for Tek when she claimed to see EJ shoot John.

Penthouse:

Marlena explains that she suspects the message to be about Steve because of how John said “killer” when looking at Steve the night he was brought in to the hospital. Marlena suggests that EJ told John that Steve was the Dimeras next target. Kayla is visibly shaken by this idea so Marlena tries to downplay the thought. Kayla interrupts to say that Marlena could be right and tells her about Steve’s recent episodes. Marlena becomes worried that Steve would hurt Kayla when he becomes violent but Kayla is sure Steve would never hurt her. Kayla goes on to tell Marlena how Steve also has flashes of what used to be done to him and that it started the night they had dinner with Benji. Marlena agrees that there then could be a connection between the episodes and the Dimeras. Kayla hates that she can’t do anything to help Steve.

Steve’s truck:

Belle takes off Claire’s mittens and hat but Steve cautions her to put them back on so Claire’s fingerprints aren’t left on the truck nor any of her things left behind. Shawn tells Steve his plans to head to Montreal but Steve suggests bribing their way onto a cargo ship where they won’t have to worry about passports. Steve is shocked to hear that Shawn didn’t plan ahead and get extra cash. Shawn and Belle insist that once they get to their destination they can handle getting their own money.

Sami’s apartment:

Sami has Lucas sit down with her and tell her everything Roman said on the phone. Lucas tells Sami about Lexie confessing that it was Tek who saw EJ shoot John and that she lied so Abe wouldn’t find out they were together that night. Lucas goes on to explain that Abe kicked Lexie out so she hooked up with Tek. Sami asks how the police can know that and Lucas explains that the police found Tek’s car but it was empty. Sami is sure EJ arranged for Lexie and Tek to disappear. Lucas suggests that Lexie and Tek simply ran off together but Sami is sure Lexie would never leave Theo. Sami starts to worry that if EJ had someone take care of Lexie and Tek, then they’d be next on his list.

Abandoned church:

Philip continues to yell for help. A police officer arrives with gun drawn until Philip calls out and identifies himself. The officer frees Philip from the basement. Philip yells at the officer for taking too long and sends him out to call for backup now that he knows Shawn and Belle aren’t alone.

Steve’s truck:

Steve repeats his warnings about the need to keep moving and the need for cash. Shawn dismisses the worry sure he can just get a random job somewhere. Steve pressures Shawn about needing a more solid plan because there will be many expenses. Shawn gets angry that Steve is pressuring him so much but Steve warns that he knows how hard it’ll be to be on the run from a Kiriakis.

Sami’s apartment:

Lucas can’t understand why Sami fears EJ will come after them. He demands that Sami explain it to him. Before Sami can answer, she runs back into the bathroom to be sick.

Penthouse:

Kayla asks Marlena for her opinion on how to help Steve. Marlena offers her skills as a therapist but Kayla doesn’t think Steve would be open to that. Marlena suggests hypnosis and Kayla hopes Steve would be willing to try that. Kayla knows that Steve is afraid of not knowing what happened during those missing years and what is inside his head. Marlena is confident that Steve will be able to work through this and put those years behind him with their help.

Steve’s truck:

Shawn acknowledges the danger of crossing Victor and wonders how Victor can keep getting away with all these bad deeds. Steve explains that it’s all about money and power, two things Victor has got in abundance. Belle is scared that Victor will get Claire but Shawn vows to protect them both. Steve advises Belle and Shawn to get some sleep. Steve turns on the radio and fights the urge to nod off himself.

Abandoned church:

Philip calls Victor to update him on his efforts to search for Claire. The officer comes back to tell Philip that they’ve got plate numbers from a stolen delivery truck. Philip tells Victor that they have a new lead.

Sami’s apartment:

Sami comes out of the bathroom and Lucas is worried that she was in the bathroom for so long. Sami seems distracted as she sits by the fire. Lucas offers to call a doctor but Sami insists she isn’t sick. Lucas suggests heading to bed but Sami doesn’t answer him. Sami starts to cry and tells Lucas that she’s pregnant. Sami falls into Lucas’ arms and sobs.
