At St. Obbins in Ireland, John tells Colleen that he was sent there to kill her, and thats what he plans on doing. Colleen tells him God has other plans for her. Hes condemning himself. John scoffs. To hell? She says hell will be a walk in the park compared to what he will face if he cuts her throat.
Nearby, Shawn covers Claire over and flashes back to her kidnapping. He remembers Belle going in the water, chasing after Rob, and then his heartfelt speech by Belles side. He promises Belle they will get Claire back. Shawn comes back to the present and smiles.
Downstairs, Steve explains to Bo that he and Kayla came here for another reason besides Shawns reunion with Colleen. The preliminary report came back on the physical Bo took, and it was troubling. They dont know whats going on, so theyll need run more tests. They came because Kayla didnt want to blurt this out over the phone. Steve nods. Bo is going to have to get back right away. Hope comes downstairs and asks what they were talking about. Bo grimaces.
At Victors mansion, Victor tries to reassure Chelsea, Kate and Billie that Crawford will no longer be a threat to them. He offered him a proposition, which he accepted. A dubious Chelsea wants to know what he offered. Billie tells her he doesnt want to know. Victor agrees. Roman comes in waving a piece of paper. Billie asks if it is the autopsy report. Roman nods. The coroner says Ford died from falling down the stairs.
Colleen tries to convince John that he doesnt really want to do this. This is Stefanos hatred, not his. John says he has to do this to find peace. Colleen disagrees. If he kills her, he will never find peace.
Belle comes in and Shawn flashes back to her telling him they need to talk, and him putting it off. He remembers Steve and Kayla showing up with his grandfather. His sighs. Belle asks whats bothering him. He says theres something off about Steve and Kayla showing up so suddenly. Belle thinks he is being paranoid. Claire is fine. They both need to relax and turn their brains off for a while. Shawn isnt so sure. He thinks something is wrong.
Kayla tells Hope they were talking about Colleen and all of her surprises. She and hope gush over Claires return and Shawn and Colleens reunion. Steve tells them he wants to see a little of the countryside. Bo says he wants to stay and catch up with his sister. Hope agrees to go and they both leave. Bo looks desperately at Kayla.
Chelsea asks Roman if this means she is off the hook. Roman isnt sure, but Victor explains that he took care of Crawford. The bell rings and Victor goes to let Crawford in. He explains that he wanted him to see the results of the autopsy. Roman tells Crawford what he told them all earlier. Crawford nods. He accepts that. An incredulous Billie wonders why he is changing his mind. Crawford shrugs. Its the right thing to do. He cant bring Fords back anyhow. Kate breaks in. She thought she lost two of her children. She knows what he is going through. He scoffs. If they didnt really die, then she doesnt have any idea what it is like. Victor asks to speak to Crawford privately. He takes him out into the foyer and tells him that he had a child that died, Isabella. Chelsea is also one of his grandchildren. He cant control how Crawford feels around her, but he can control how he acts around her. He acted very inappropriately before. Crawford meekly agrees to apologize and Victor asks him to meet him in his study in a few moments. He has a phone call to make.
Marlena wakes up and calls out to John. He tells her she can close her eyes, or watch this if she wishes. Either way, she better stay seated. Marlena begs him not to do this. He has a choice, and she knows he isnt a killer. John says he has done this before, and hell do it again. Marlena screams and makes a grab for Johns legs.
Bo asks Kayla for specifics. She tells him his tests came back showing elevated levels of bilirubin and high levels of alkaline phosphatase. Bo asks what that means. Kayla says its alarming, but theyll have to run more tests. Bo freaks. Is it life-threatening? Kayla just isnt sure yet. Bo sighs. He hasnt even noticed any symptoms. Kayla tells him not to worry. Theyll figure out whats going on and how to beat it.
Outside, Hope wants to know whats wrong with Bo. Steve hems and haws. He tells her that Bo has been through a lot in the past few days. They found Claire, saw Colleen, and hes also probably worried about his dad. Hope isnt so sure. Steve tells her that when Bo found out that Victor was his dad, he had a hard time, and Hope turned to him for advice then. She agrees he gave her good advice. Steve says he has some to offer right now ,She needs to give Bo his space.
Phillip tells Victor over the phone that they have found Claire. Shawn, Sr.s sister, Colleen, had her. Victor asks about Brady. Phillip tells him that Colleen said he disappeared after she took him in Austria. Phillip believes her. Victor tells him that hes going to send someone over to speak with her.
Belle tells Shawn that Kayla is probably just freaked out about her dad finding his sister. Claire wakes up and tells them she had a good dream. Belle smiles. She did, too, and she didnt even go to sleep. Shawn beams. He feels like he is dreaming, with them all here together. He picks Claire up and hugs her.
Phillip tells Stefano that Colleen had nothing to gain by keeping Brady. Apparently, she was trying to keep him safe from Stefano, who kidnapped John to make him do some kind of mission. Victor swears. That DiMera is a demented son of a bitch. Hes sorry he introduced John and Stefano so many years ago. Victor thinks Colleen must have some kind of messianic complex. Phillip agrees, but she wasnt trying to do any harm. Victor agrees to trust Phillip on this, and Phillip promises to dig a little bit more. Victor ask when hell be returning. He needs the plane. Phillip tells him hell send it back right away and get a ticket home. Victor asks him to dig deep and they hang up.
Victor calls Bo and gives him the update on Chelsea. Crawford Decker is no longer an issue. He thought about it, and then decided he didnt want to pursue the matter. Bo doesnt think that sounds right. Victor explains that the autopsy showed that Ford fell down the stairs, and the police are accepting Chelsea and the others version of events. Bo smiles. Its amazing how things work out when he gets involved. He thanks Victor for whatever he did that he doesnt want to know about. Victor tells him that he cant come back to the states n the plane. Hes lending it to Crawford after the funeral. Bo thanks him for the news and hangs up. He tells Kayla that Crawford is dropping the charges. Chelsea and Stephanie are in the clear. Kayla hugs him.
Colleen asks for one last word before she dies. She tells him that if he kills her, hed be killing his own mother. John doesnt believe her. Stalling wont work. Colleen says she can prove it. Marlena agrees. She pulls out the picture of John on his mothers lap. She found it in his coat pocket from the night of the accident. Colleen smiles and nods. Thats John sitting on her lap.
Hope and Bo come inside and Bo gives them the news about Chelsea and Stephanie. Steve cant believe it. He hugs Kayla. Hope is suspicious, but Bo tells her it came from a very reliable source.
Kate thanks Roman profusely. Roman tells her not to thank him. There just wasnt enough evidence to prove anything. Crawford comes in and interrupts. Billie huffs. She is sorry for what happened to his son, but that doesnt give him the right to take it out on Chelsea. Crawford agrees. He came to say that he is sorry. Chelsea says she is sorry, too.
Colleen shows John and Marlena the medallion from the picture. Marlena says its the same one in the picture. John thinks Colleen knew he was coming. Colleen tells him that when he walked through the door, she saw the hard eyes of Stefano, not the eyes of the boy she knew. Marlena explains that Stefano is comatose. He cant hurt John or anyone else ever again. John sighs and relaxes. Hes good with that. Marlena turns to Colleen and asks how it is that she is Johns mother.
Victor asks Crawford to go into his study. Roman says he has to leave. Victor tells Chelsea that she is an amazing young woman. She is a credit to Billies parenting skills. Billie sighs. Maybe she can put that on her résumé. She tells him shes finished at the university. Victor says anyone would take her. Billie isnt so sure. Victor would like to offer her a job. He needs a head of security for his London office. Billie says she spent time there as head of ISA. Victor nods. Would she be interested? Billie asks if its ok with Chelsea. She agrees as long as she can come visit. Billie thanks Victor profusely and accepts his offer. Chelsea smiles and tells Victor that hes ok as far as grandfathers go.
Kayla thinks Bo and Hope should go home and be with Chelsea. Bo agrees. They found Claire, and he meant his aunt. He thinks theyve checked off the top priorities. Hope sighs. No kidding.
Colleen tells John and Marlena that she pretended to jump off the cliff so that Santo would never find her. She named John Ryan and fled to Argentina. She was taken in by a convent, and gave birth to John there. After a while, she had to leave, because John couldnt grow up there as a boy. The sisters gave her a little money, but that soon ran out, and she took him to an orphanage. She mended socks and things for the head of the orphanage and she was allowed to see John on Sundays. She found work as a seamstress, and things were looking up, but then she fell ill. After months in the hospital, she came to fetch John, but he was gone. She became confused and outraged, and they threw her in the streets. She never stopped looking for him. A few months ago, she finally learned that a family called the Alamains had adopted him. Theres no telling what they would have done if they learned he was a brother to Stefano. John asks if that means Santo is shi father. Colleen nods. She has only been with one man. Marlena shakes her head. This just seems impossible. Its just so ironic that Stefano sent John to kill her. Maybe it was fate. Colleen thinks it was God. John approaches and brandishes the knife. Colleen tells him that if he kills her, hell be killing a part of himself. John rushes out of the room. Marlena calls out after him.
Kayla asks if she can call the airlines for them. Bo says hell take care of it. Hope laughs. She really is trying o get rid of them, huh? Kayla smiles and says yes. Shawn comes outside and Bo tells him theyre heading home. Shawn asks whats wrong. Marlena rushes out and tells them that John has run off.
Morgan tells Chelsea, "We need to deal with the betrayal of our trust."
Marlena tells Kayla, Hope, and Bo, "This mission was what he lived for. It was his whole existence. I'm afraid he just might be a walking time bomb."
John strokes his cheek with the blade of the knife and holds it to his own throat.
