Sami's apartment:

Sami and Lucas are kissing. Lucas tries to calm Sami's fears about the future but Sami can't believe they are destined for happiness. Lucas reveals that he went out and purchased a heart pendant for their baby girl. Sami is so touched that she kisses him. Sami asks what they will do if the baby is a boy and Lucas jokingly replies that he'll have a football added to the pendant. Lucas declares loudly and happily about the baby news but Sami becomes worried that Lucas is being so loud with the news. Lucas assures Sami that he is still willing to wait to tell everyone their news. Sami suggests they shouldn't buy gifts for the baby just yet. Sami tears up as Lucas tells Sami's stomach that the pendant is for the baby so she'll know he's her daddy from her very first breath.

Hotel Suite:

Kayla begs Steve not to leave as he angrily packs his bag. Kayla doesn't think Steve should be blamed for his actions but Steve considers himself guilty with an excuse. Kayla tries to appeal to Steve's tendency to stick around and fight his battles but Steve points out that he's running away to save Kayla's life, not his own. Kayla insists she doesn't need protection but Steve points out the bruises around Kayla's neck inflicted at his hands. Kayla tries to convince Steve that she can bring him back to reality if he has another episode but Steve refuses to let such a risk happen again.

Cruise:

Philip paces the deck and stops at the railing to look out over the water. Willow walks up now dressed in a sexy evening gown and gloats about the ship being full of suckers. Philip complains that the money he gave Willow was for clothes and not gambling. Willow points out how the money bought her this new outfit and gloats again about using the look to sucker older men into losing their money to her. Willow pulls a roll of cash out of her cleavage to pay Philip back but he refuses to take it. Willow stuffs the money back in her cleavage and mentions heading back to the gambling tables to swindle more men out of their paychecks. Philip grabs Willow's arm to stop her and demands that she do as he tells her because they aren't here for a pleasure cruise, they are here to get Claire back.

Shawn plays with Claire but Belle hugs her tight and worries about when the ship will dock in Australia. Shawn explains that the ship will dock in Australia just after dawn tomorrow. Belle starts to panic that they are only a few hours away from losing Claire but Shawn assures her that no one will break up their family. Belle doesn't think Shawn is in a position to make such promises but Shawn refuses to believe otherwise. Belle realizes that Shawn has a plan. Shawn warns that though it's dangerous, it's their only chance.

Willow defends her decision to enjoy the cruise because Belle and Shawn are locked in their cabin with no risk of getting away with Claire. Philip refuses to trust that Shawn will simply sit around and wait for them to dock. Willow reminds Philip that if it weren't for her, Shawn and Belle wouldn't be as confined as they are now. Philip refuses to relax until he gets Claire back. Willow complains that Philip plans to take Claire to Belgium where a foreign nanny who scares her'll raise her. Willow offers her services to be Claire's nanny.

Shawn plans to steal a life raft but still wonders how they will accomplish getting out of the locked cabin. Belle asks about navigation and Shawn claims he can use the stars. Belle asks about rations and Shawn explains that they'll take just enough to sustain them until they reach a nearby group of islands. Belle is hesitant but Shawn points out that they keep catching lucky breaks just as they feel the end is near.

Sami's apartment:

Lucas wants to mark on a calendar the soonest date they can start telling the world about Sami's pregnancy. Sami takes offense at Lucas' use of the word secret referring to it instead as something private between couples. Lucas points out that Will, Kate, and Billie already know. Sami is adamant that no one else finds out. Lucas jokes about how Sami is superwoman to have saved him and conceived a child all in one night. Sami downplays her heroism and backs off when Lucas playfully pokes at her. Sami claims she doesn't like thinking about that night because of how scared she was. Lucas hugs Sami and tells her to concentrate on all the good that came out of that night. Sami laughs when Lucas talks about taking a full-page ad out announcing the pregnancy. EJ knocks on the door and walks right in once Sami opens the door. Lucas and Sami exchange worried glances when EJ vaguely gushes about Kate telling him "the news" and how he had to rush right over and congratulate them both.

Hotel suite:

Kayla unpacks Steve's bag refusing to let him leave. Steve picks up his things to repack but Kayla insists that they must keep trying. Steve tries to make Kayla see that he can't control what the DiMeras did to him and the best he can do is get away where the DiMeras cant find him.

Sami's apartment:

EJ starts to mention Kate's unenthusiastic response to the news but Lucas doesn't want to hear it. Lucas wants EJ to leave. EJ agrees but first asks to be told of the date so he can mark it in his calendar. Lucas doesn't understand why EJ would want to know of the date, as he and Sami both believe that EJ is talking about Sami's pregnancy. EJ claims he made the assumption he'd be invited. Sami doesn't understand why EJ would be expecting to be invited until EJ clarifies that he's talking about the wedding. Lucas mocks EJ's laugh when he jokes about their past failed attempts. Sami questions whether Kate said anymore to EJ besides the wedding news and EJ insists that was it. EJ asks if there is anything else going on but Sami and Lucas are quick to say that there isn't. EJ wants to bestow a month off work with pay and the company jet and pilot at the couple's disposal as a wedding gift. Lucas doesn't think going away so long will be necessary. EJ warns that they'll need a month just to recover from planning a wedding as well as needing the time to prepare Sami for a lifetime of torment from Kate.

Hotel suite:

Kayla talks of how she refused to give up on Steve when she thought he was dead. Kayla tells Steve how she put on a brave face during the day but crawled into bed each night with sadness. Kayla can't believe that Steve wants to take the miracle of his return away. Steve insists that Kayla has to let him go but Kayla refuses. Steve warns that Kayla would be taking the risk of not waking up in the morning but Kayla insists that's a risk she's willing to take. Steve still insists on leaving so Kayla declares that he's better off just strangling her right now because she's dead without him anyway.

Cruise:

Philip laughs at the suggestion of Willow being responsible for Claire's welfare. Willow insists she's great with kids and uses the example of supporting her baby brother as he attends college. Philip insults Willow by mocking her method of raising money. Willow warns Philip to watch what he says to the woman carrying his insurance policy. Philip warns that once he gets Claire back, he'll have no use for Willow or her baby so she'd best get prepared for the end of this free ride. Willow cautions that even Shawn knows it's not that easy to get rid of her.

Belle reluctantly agrees to go along with Shawn's escape plan. Belle suggests using the window but Shawn points out that it's locked from the outside. Belle laments that Shawn used her last hairpin trying to pick the door lock. Belle realizes that Claire needs a diaper change and takes her into the bathroom. Shawn looks around the cabin for a way out. Belle calls from the bathroom to declare that she's discovered something.

Sami's apartment:

Sami complains that EJ painted such a bad picture of their future. Sami steps into the bathroom. Lucas and EJ talk about work while she is gone. EJ mentions asking Kate to back off and keep her opinions of Sami to herself. Lucas prefers to deal with Kate on his own but EJ claims that when it interferes with business, it becomes his problem too. Sami comes back out of the bathroom and complains that EJ is still there. EJ agrees to leave and grabs the trash bag by the door offering to take it out for them. Sami tries to stop him but EJ gets out the door before she can grab the bag back. Sami is overly relieved that EJ didn't find out she was pregnant. Lucas questions why Sami is so specifically worried about EJ finding out she's pregnant.

Out in the hallway, EJ sifts through Sami's trash to try and find what she's been hiding from him.

Hotel suite:

Kayla begs Steve to kill her but Steve claims he'd rather kill himself. Kayla uses that as an example of how they can't live without each other. Steve still insists that he must leave for he loves her too much to stay. Steve finishes packing his things and starts to zip up the bag. Kayla fights against his hands and tosses the bag to the floor.

Cruise:

Belle puts Claire down in the crib and tells Shawn about the bathroom air vent being loose. Shawn has Belle watch the door while he checks out the vent. Shawn is able to dislodge the cover and tells Belle that he plans to shimmy down the vent and travel through the passages until he finds a vent leading to the deck. He tells Belle to pack a survival kit for them and Claire and he will come back with a key to let them out. Belle worries that Shawn will get stuck. Shawn tells Belle to wait an hour to hear from him and if he doesn't show up, then she can call the purser and admit where he is. Shawn hugs Belle and assures her and Claire that he's going to get them off the boat. Shawn and Belle kiss and Shawn heads into the bathroom.

Philip doesn't take Willow's threat seriously. Willow insists that Philip needs her as much as she needs him. Willow threatens to tell the judge that she was paid by Victor to lie but Philip points out that Willow will then be sentencing herself to jail for perjury. Willow is confident that things won't turn out that way for her because Philip won't take the risk of losing Claire. Philip declares that Willow is too smart for her own good. Philip picks up Willow and dangles her over the edge of the boat.

Willow begs Philip to let her back up. Philip asks for a decent reason and Willow cries out that she's pregnant. Philip doesn't think that's a good enough reason. Willow apologizes and begs Philip to let her back up. Philip lets Willow back up but blocks her attempt to punch him. Willow calls Philip a sick twisted bastard and hopes that Shawn and Belle get to keep Claire before walking off. Philip just laughs and walks off in the opposite direction.

They barely miss catching Shawn slipping out of the air vent right behind where they were standing. Shawn ducks out of sight until one of the ship's crewmen walks by. Shawn follows him.

Belle works fast at packing a bag for their family. There is a knock at the door and Belle thinks it's Shawn at first. Instead it is Chief Officer Stratton asking to use his key to come in and speak with them. Belle stalls by claiming she isn't dressed and quickly stashes the bag out of sight. Belle turns on the shower and comes back out of the bathroom with a robe over her clothes. Belle tells Stratton he can come in and Stratton apologizes for intruding at such a late hour. Stratton asks about Shawn but Belle claims he's in the shower. Belle asks to know what is going on but Stratton insists on talking to them both together. Belle tries to get rid of Stratton by claiming Shawn takes long showers but Stratton insists on waiting.

Sami's apartment:

Sami claims that it isn't a big deal to have EJ find out but she's more scared that EJ is trying to break them up. Sami claims not to know why EJ is so desperate to know about the baby. Lucas worries that keeping the baby a secret is taking too much of a toll on Sami and asks about her latest checkup. Sami relays that they said the baby was fine but that she has some high blood pressure they want to watch. Sami mocks the doctor's advice to avoid stress but Lucas implores her to follow the doctor's orders exactly so nothing bad happens. Lucas begs Sami to let him tell everyone including EJ so that the secret isn't causing her stress anymore.

Hotel suite:

Steve reaches for the bag but Kayla grabs it and holds it against her body as she blocks the door. Steve asks for the bag but Kayla insists that if he wants it, he'll have to force his way past her. Steve decides that he doesn't need the bag anyway and pushes Kayla aside enough to get through the bedroom door. Kayla drops the bag and tackles Steve when he stops to grab his coat. Kayla sits on top of Steve and smacks him repeatedly as she sobs and yells at him for being a coward. Steve deflects Kayla's blows until she falls against him sobbing. They kiss.

Sami's apartment:

Sami refuses to tell anyone just yet, especially EJ Lucas questions whether it's because Sami is still attracted to EJ but Sami is quick to deny it. Sami says she's actually scared of EJ and his ties to Stefano. Sami is sure that EJ is out for revenge making them all targets. Lucas points out that EJ's offer of the company plane was a nice gesture but Sami sees it as a plan for misdeeds. Lucas suggests that Sami is being paranoid and Sami sees it as Lucas being on EJ's side.

Warehouse:

EJ brings Sami's trash bag to Stefano so he can be present while EJ searches through the bag. EJ discovers a card sent to Sami by her obstetrician and gloats about their plan working out. EJ smirks as Stefano clenches his fist in triumph.

Hotel suite:

Steve and Kayla's kissing becomes more passionate as they roll around on the floor. Kayla looks instinctively afraid as Steve hovers over her. Steve backs off at the realization that he caused that look of fear. Kayla grabs Steve's arms and pulls herself up off the floor. Steve tries to get past Kayla but Kayla blocks his every move toward the door as she tries to convince him that they belong together. Steve darts past Kayla, grabs his coat and makes it to the door. Kayla calls after him to stop. Steve stops at the door and tells Kayla he loves her before leaving. Kayla falls to her knees and sobs.

Cruise:

Shawn has knocked out the crewman and sets up his body to look like a passenger who fell asleep on the deck. Shawn has donned the crewman's uniform and grabbed his keys. Shawn heads down the hallway.

Belle tries again to get Stratton to leave by claiming that Shawn will still be in the shower for a while but he insists on waiting. Belle asks to be told what is going on and Stratton shows her the newspaper clipping from the Toronto paper citing them as kidnappers. Belle points out that Claire is her daughter and that Philip's court order isn't valid outside the U.S. Stratton points out that the order was enforced while they were still in Salem so a crime was still committed. Belle scoffs and questions what more can be done to punish them given that they are already locked in the cabin awaiting docking. Stratton declares intent to let Belle stay with Claire in the cabin while Shawn will be forced to stay in the brig until they dock. Belle balks and picks up Claire. Belle claims she needs to feed Claire now but Stratton doesn't see why that's a problem. Belle explains that she needs to feed Belle 'personally' and insists that Stratton leave and come back since she can't go anywhere else. Stratton agrees to leave and tells Belle to tell Shawn that he'll be back in 10 minutes.

Shawn, now carrying a baby sized life vest, sneaks his way up to their cabin door and fiddles with the keys.

Sami's apartment:

Lucas insists that he's not defending EJ. Sami questions why Lucas would be hired by EJ if he doesn't have some master plan. Lucas points out that the need to pay the bills outweighs the potential danger. Sami complains that EJ still lives across the hall and keeps knocking on their door. Lucas urges Sami to concentrate on the good things in their life and hugs her.

Warehouse:

Stefano reaches out for EJ's hand as EJ gleefully tells him about their baby plan and their plan for Steve working out. EJ tells Stefano that he's grateful for raising him to be the man he is today and promises to repay Stefano by making him well again. Stefano squeezes EJ's hand.

Hotel suite:

Kayla looks over at her and Steve's wedding picture and contemplates throwing it at the door. She decides against it and instead clutches it against her body. Kayla lets the frame fall to the floor and then slowly paces back into the bedroom.

Cruise:

Shawn hears a baby cooing in the room across the hall and then returns to fiddling with the keys at the door. Stratton promises to be back in 10 minutes and then locks Belle and Claire inside the cabin again. Once he walks away, Shawn steps out of hiding and uses the crewman's keys to unlock the cabin door. Belle tells him what Stratton wanted. Shawn gives Belle the life vest to put on Claire while he heads into the bathroom to get the bag. Belle slips off her robe and folds up Claire's blanket. Shawn opens the door slightly to see if the hallway is clear but instead spots Philip walking up to return to his own room across the hall.

Sami's apartment:

Lucas holds Sami in his arms and tells her not to think about EJ and insists that if he finds out then it is no big deal. Lucas urges Sami to have faith in their love and they kiss. Sami promises to try to not be scared. They kiss and hug.

Cruise:

Shawn watches Philip fiddle with his key. Philip turns around when he hears Shawn closing his door. Shawn informs Belle that Philip is right outside. Belle worries that they won't get out before Stratton comes back.

Warehouse:

Steve breaks into the warehouse and promises EJ to do whatever he asks if he spares Kayla. EJ claims that Kayla's fate is in Steve's hands. Steve gets behind EJ and holds a knife at his throat. EJ holds up the tarot card to subdue Steve. Steve backs off and EJ is able to shake Steve off his back. EJ laughs as Steve cowers in front of the death card. EJ tucks the card back in his pocket and makes Steve look at him. EJ repeats his "you're one of us" mantra while Steve is entranced and orders Steve to bring John to him. Steve recites the order.

Hotel suite:

Kayla holds Steve's shirt close. Kayla dials the phone and tells someone that she has to talk to them about Steve for it's a matter of life and death.
