At the pub, Shawn tells Phillip to leave Belle alone. Phillip thinks she’s miserable. He’s sorry, but he and Belle will always love each other. Shawn glares. Phillip is crazy. Belle loves him and is going to marry him. End of story. Phillip taunts. Belle is done with him.

In Belle and Shawn’s room, Hope asks Belle what went on between her and Phillip. Belle doesn’t know what she’s talking about. Hope glares. The sheets are ripped off the bed, Belle is wearing a robe, and a vase is broken. It’s pretty clear something went on up here. Belle pouts. Why doesn’t Hope believe her? Hope tells her the truth is written all over her face. Belle denies it. Hope asks her point blank if she’s trying to say she didn’t just have sex with Phillip.

In Sami’s hospital room, Lucas watches Sami sleep. He kneels down by the twins

bassinets and talks to them. He’s glad he has the chance to spend some alone time with them. Being a parent is hard. He know these kids are dependent on him for everything. He was a little taken aback when he first found out about them, but looking into their eyes, he sees everyone they ever loved. He hopes they take after Sami. He wants them to know their daddy loves them already.

Outside an apartment, Abe tells Bo to take it easy. He wants a clean arrest. Roman comes out and invites them in. A grungy, dirty fellow sits in a chair. It’s Harry Jenks, the man they suspect hit John. Roman says he’s clean- apparently he’s a model citizen. Bo wants to know who put him up to running down John. The man already told Roman. He doesn’t know any John. Bo asks about Stefano or EJ. He doesn’t know them either. He wants a lawyer. Abe says the man is lying and he can prove it. He pulls out his phone. He tells someone on the other end to send a squad car out for EJ Wells. Harry grumbles. They can’t search through his stuff without a warrant. Bo pulls out the search warrant and shoves it in his face. They got this because they have reason to believe he was involved in a hit and run. Abe says he’s going back to jail. Apparently, Harry Jenks is just an alias. His real name is Jake Jinero. He just finished up a stint for armed robbery. Bo nods. That makes sense. EJ comes in. They called him here to meet someone. He’s glad to help them, but he is in a bit of a rush. Bo is pretty sure he and Jake have already met.

Lucas dozes in a chair. A baby cries. Lucas rushes over and holds his daughter. She calms. Lucas flashes forward into the future, 2013 to be exact. He sits at the pub with his daughter. Sami, EJ, and Johnny walk into the pub. Their daughter greets Sami enthusiastically. EJ brags about Johnny. He won a dressage competition. He may as well have been born on a horse. Lucas’ daughter begs for a horse. Lucas smiles sadly. They really can’t afford one right now. She chose violin lessons instead. Johnny says he is taking violin lessons already, from an accomplished musician. Sami looks uncomfortable. Lucas tries to make the best of it. Their daughter is studying under her music teacher at school. EJ bets that’s just great. They have to get Johnny off to his fencing lesson. Sami looks back guiltily and follows EJ out. Lucas’ daughter goes into berserker mode. “How come Johnny gets to have everything and I don't? I hate you! I hate you! I hate you!”

Phillip snorts. He can give Belle the stability she needs. Shawn is still like a kid deciding what he wants to be when he grows up. Belle is only marrying him out of obligation to Claire. Shawn rolls his eyes. If that’s what Phillip needs to tell himself, whatever. How is Phillip so sure she wants him anyway? He says he knows it deep down. He thinks Shawn does too.

Hope asks Belle if she’s right. Belle says she isn’t. She isn’t having an affair. Hopes asks he if she is trying to get caught. Belle doesn’t have time for this. She has to clean up before Shawn comes upstairs. Hope is going down to talk to him. Belle begs her not to. Hope wants the truth, now. Belle bursts into tears. She’s so sorry. She doesn’t know how it happened. Her and Phillip aren’t having an affair, and she hasn’t been cheating on Shawn. She just doesn’t know how this happened. Hope is dumbfounded. Belle whines. She was vulnerable. Hope voice turns to ice, “No, no. Don't. Don't you dare use your father's death as an excuse.” Belle has been looking for excuses to be with Phillip ever since she got back to Salem from the island. She moved in with him and helped him look for his son. Belle thought he would leave them alone. Hope glares. Belle didn’t want to be left alone. She got exactly what she wanted just now.

Shawn tells Phillip whatever he and Belle had is over. He destroyed it when he walked out on them. Shawn may not have it all together, but at least he tries to do what’s right. Phillip tells him he’ll put real heroes to shame joining the police force. He’ll fail at that like he fails at everything else. Shawn tells him to keep talking. Hell never have Belle in his life or bed again. Phillip asks how Shawn knows she isn’t already there. Shawn decks him.

Lucas cradles his daughter and murmurs, “I don't care if my kid's not some prodigy on the violin or riding to the hounds, as long as they don't inherit the really bad stuff from me.”

He flashes to the future. Lucas’ decidedly chubby teenage daughter sits in the pub studying. Johnny and two of his friends come in. They tease him about his sister. He snorts. She’s only his half-sister. The girl overhears and blushes. They make fun of her weight. One of them ribs, “Hey, blubber butt, you know why god invented alcohol? So fat chicks can get some, too.” Her lip quivers. Johnny suggests to his friends that they blow this dump of a bar. They leave. A tear rolls down the girl’s face as she contemplates some freshly poured shots of liquor. Lucas cuddles the baby. He swears she won’t make the same mistakes he did.

EJ scoffs. He has never seen this man in his life. Why did they drag him down here to see this cretin? Jake yelps, “Hey! I know what that means!” Roman sighs. He thinks EJ is telling the truth. He can go. Roman says it’s looking like the DiMeras had nothing to do with this. Abe tells them to think again. Jake’s cellmate in prison was Andre DiMera. Jake protests. He doesn’t know him either. Roman takes his phone. He whistles. He has Tony DiMera, otherwise knows as Andre, on speed dial. They arrest him, and walk him out. Abe follows and reads his rights. Roman can’t believe it. It’s there in black and white. The DiMeras did this. He doesn’t want Bo to tell Sami. Maybe this is all a coincidence. Bo says he knows that’s not true. Roman sighs. He has to go see her and the twins. Bo thinks she will ask. Roman doesn’t care. He isn’t going to be the one to break her heart today.

Lucas will do anything to protect his kid. But what about after he dies? He flashes forward farther into the future. His daughter is a young woman, kneeling by his tombstone. Sami Wells DiMera is buried next to him. The girl cries. Johnny walks up and finds her. It’s a pity they both died so young. She turns on him. They both died of broken hearts and he knows it. He sneers, “And you're going die of cirrhosis of the liver.” She cries. Why is he so hateful? He grins. Why is she a drunk? She begs him for a little cash. He throws a wad at her. It’s his pleasure to help her die a little quicker. He walks off. She sobs.

Phillip and Shawn toss each other around. Shawn breaks a coffee pot over Phillip’s head, and sprays something from a can in his eyes. Phillip yells. He grabs Shawn and slams his head into the bar over and over. Caroline comes out with a stick and beats Phillip off. She asks them what they think they’re doing, destroying her place that way. Phillip looks around at the broken table and chairs and throws a wad of cash on the table. He leaves. Shawn moans. He can’t believe he let Phillip push his buttons like that. Caroline rages. She’ll push his buttons if he doesn’t straighten this mess out. Shawn says he will and walks off to the back. Caroline calls Bo and leaves him a message. His son really needs him right now.

Belle hasn’t been chasing after Phillip. Hope can’t make her feel worse than she already does. She’s in love with Shawn. This was just one stupid moment. Hope doesn’t understand how she could jump in bed with Phillip. Belle insists she was confused. Hope shakes her head. She won’t let Belle dishonor her father by blaming his death for this. Belle is sorry. She swears it will never happen again. Hope says she has to tell Shawn. Belle breaks down. It was a mistake. She never had resolution after her marriage ended. Phillip just left. But Shawn is the one she wants. He is her life. She sniffles. She has lost so much. If she lost him, too, she doesn’t know what she would do. Hope softens. She’ll keep Belle’s secret. The one condition is that Belle cut Phillip out of her life completely.

Bo walks in the pub to find Shawn cleaning up. He sighs. He told Shawn to take it outside if he ever had to fight. Shawn tell Bo Phillip told him he was going after Belle. He also made a crack about Shawn joining the police force. He knows he is the one that ratted him out to the commander. Bo admits the commander received a letter questioning Shawn’s worth as a candidate. Shawn fumes, “Phillip.” Bo says maybe. He goes off to get some ice for Shawn’s face.

Sami wakes up and asks about the twins. Lucas tells her they are off getting a bath. Roman comes in with flowers and two giant stuffed bears. He saw the twins and they’re gorgeous. He kisses Sami. Lucas says they are waiting to see how much he had to do with their birth. Sami chimes in. EJ is demanding more DNA tests. Marlena talked with a lab tech that seemed to think an amnio isn’t a hundred percent, so they’re running the tests again. Roman is surprised this came up again. Sami asks about the investigation. Roman fidgets. He’ll let her know more when he finds anything. Speaking of which, he has to get back to the office. He tells them not to let EJ get them down. He promises he won’t break up their family. He leaves.

EJ admires the babies through the nursery glass. A nurse asks which one is his. He smiles dreamily, “Does it matter? They're perfect, aren't they? So full of promise.”

Lucas thinks Sami’s dad is acting strange. She thinks it’s just because of EJ. She can’t wait to get these DNA results back so they can shut him up for good. Lucas thinks he won’t stop- not until he gets his hooks into Sami. Lucas wants him out of their lives for good. He thinks it’s time they consider taking their kids and moving out of Salem permanently.

Shawn grumbles. It had to be Phillip. Bo reminds him he has zero proof. Until he does, he has to stop playing into Phillip’s hands. Shawn grumps. He’s going after Belle. Bo thinks he’s just baiting Shawn. He just keeps going until Shawn takes a swing, and then he looks like the bad guy, and Phillip looks like a victim. Bo tells him he needs to trust the woman he loves. She needs to know Phillip is after her. Shawn sighs. He does trust Belle.

Belle tells Hope it is no problem. Phillip is, as of now, out of her life for good. Hope prays she means that. Belle rambles. She does. She swears Hope will never regret this. Hope stops her. She is doing this for Shawn, and Shawn only. If she suspects for one moment that Belle has betrayed him again, she will tell him everything. Belle swears it won’t happen. Hope nods and tells her to finish cleaning up. A little later, Belle comes out of the bathroom and asks Hope again if she will tell Shawn about what happened. Before she can answer, Bo and Shawn knock. They enter. Hope freaks over Shawn’s bloody face. He tells them about the fight with Phillip. Belle turns white. “What did he say to you?” Bo wants to leave with Hope. Belle tells her not to worry. She will take care of Shawn. Hope raises her eyebrow. She hopes so. She and Bo leave. Shawn asks why she put new sheets on the bed. Belle says she got tired of the old ones. She tends to his wounds.

Sami reminds Lucas they already talked about this. EJ will just hurt everyone they love if they try to leave. Lucas groans. So she’s going to marry him? Sami thought he was ok with it. That was before the babies got here. Now he can’t bear to think of EJ with his hands on them. Lucas stops. He doesn’t want to fight. They will talk about this later. He just wants to enjoy this perfect day. No matter what happens, she and the twins are his family. He loves them, and always will.

Shawn is glad she’s getting some practice for nursing school. She wants to know what happened with Phillip. Shawn doesn’t want to talk about it. He just let Phillip get to him. Belle says that wont happen anymore. As of now, Phillip is out of their lives for good. He’s isn’t good for them. He is a part of her past, and Shawn is her future. She has been thinking a lot about her dad, and she doesn’t want to lose anyone else she loves. All Phillip does is cause problems, and that needs to stop right now. Look at the fight they just had. Phillip needs his own family. Shawn beams. He hasn’t been this happy since they got engaged., especially after what Phillip said downstairs. Belle asks sharply, “What did he say?“ Shawn says it doesn’t matter. What matters is that they love each other. Everything is going to be alright.

Bo grumbles about the babies’ bath. He wanted to see them. Hope asks Sami how she is. She admits she is exhausted, but thrilled. Well, as thrilled as she can be right now. Hope is sad John isn’t here. Sami cant believe he’s really gone. Lucas tell them his killer is trying to take their babies. Sami chimes in. EJ doesn’t think the babies look alike, so they are having another DNA test to shut him up. Sami asks Bo how the investigation is going. Bo fidgets. They’ll talk about it later. Sami insists. She wants to know now. Bo relents. They found this guy that was Andre DiMera’s cellmate in prison. Sami sighs. That proves it. John died because of her. Lucas is going to check on the twins. Sami tries to stop him, but he rushes out. Bo goes after him to make sure he’s alright. Hope tells Sami she doesn’t have to do this. Sami cannot go to one more funeral. She has to do this. Bo stops Lucas outside. He tells him they’ll talk Sami out of this. Lucas thinks the only way is to stop EJ. He’ll do it himself. He wont let EJ break up his family. Bo asks what he is talking about. Lucas grimaces, “I'm saying if he turns up dead, you know who to go after.”


Chelsea tells Stephanie, “We both know that you have feelings for Max.”

Morgan asks Max, “Is there something that I should know about?”

Kate tells Lucas, “They're my grandchildren, Lucas. Please don't shut me out of their lives.”

EJ tells Sami, “You have to admit -- your son is the spitting image of me.” Sami spits, “Shut up.”
