In New Jersey, John searches Marlena's hotel room with the help of a local detective and later learns the blood found there is actually from a pig. When he finds a receipt for a storage facility, John guesses it was planted for them to find. There, they find a steamer trunk and open it to see a bound Marlena inside. Sami is with Belle when she wakes and offers her sympathies on losing her baby. Both agree they need Marlena with them. Belle is thrilled when Maggie brings her Claire to hold. After they make love, Abe talks with Lexie about starting over and states that it begins with trust. She starts to apologize but Abe suggests they have both made mistakes and admits when he was blind, he was very angry and pushed her away. Abe adds that he has never stopped loving her and asks that she never see Tek again. Lexie quickly agrees. Shawn returns to the loft where Mimi announces she's calling to cancel the surrogacy contract. Shawn claims he doesn't care because it's not his baby and advises her that Belle lost her baby. Though she asserts that she's sorry, Shawn doesn't believe her and packs a few things before leaving. In the hospital corridor, a sobbing Steve tells Billie and then Kayla that he remembers calling Stephanie his "baby girl." Kayla starts crying tears of joy to know that his memory has returned. However, Steve warns her that he only remembers Stephanie and not Kayla. As he worries that he'll be a failure as a father, Steve admits to Kayla that while their daughter wants them together, he doesn't want to hurt Kayla anymore. Bringing flowers to Sami, E.J. warns Lucas to decide to be with her or he will go after her. When Sami appears, E.J. claims the flowers are for Belle and invites Sami out to dinner. She turns him down at first but then leaves with him after Lucas claims he doesn't care. After Victor orders her to stay out of Belle and Philip's marriage, Kate reminds him Mimi is carrying his grandchild. Victor tells Shawn that Titan will no longer back his engine after the two accidents. When Bonnie hears Kate wants the surrogacy canceled, she leaks to Philip that Kate knew the truth about Claire all along.
