At the grand DiMera mansion, Stefano wants a word with Rolf.
They must attend to some urgent business. The phoenix believes he should go underground. He hands Dr. Rolf an important portfolio to look after during their journey. He then breaks the queen of his chess set, to leave an ominous message for Marlena. The phoenix orders
Dr. Rolf to move the lab. Rolf informs him that John had destroyed said lab. Stefano is enraged. He will destroy both John and Marlena with his new generation of DiMeras. The vendetta will continue!

- Meanwhile, Roman wants a word with Steve and Kayla. He needs
all the deets about Stefano, etc. They fill him in, but Kayla just really wants to be with her baby. Steve is mad as heck at Stefano.  Joe is returned to his parents after docs have given him a clean bill of health.
- Lexie attends to Marlena. Enter John. Marlena starts to wakes up. Sami tries to encourage her, nervously talks to John, and then leaves. John asks the big guy upstairs (God) to help Blondie. Marlena opens her eyes. Lexie wants to do more tests.
- In the stairwell, Tony talks to EJ about the fact that John has control of the DiMera empire. They need to get it back. EJ is reluctant to go against his father. Tony pushes. If they do not get back control of what Stefano built, it could be sabotaged. EJ agrees. Tony takes off
to get Anna. Enter Nicole. She tells EJ off and calls him a liar. He alludes to the fact that he has feelings for her. Nicole does not believe him and angrily waltzes off. She runs into Lucas, who announces that he and Sami are really finished. His daughter is his future. Chloe agrees with him but when Lucas takes off, she is dismayed. Nicole says they should go have coffee and a friendly chat. Men!
- Tony comes upon Roman and Steve discussing how Stefano snatched baby Joe. Tony curses the phoenix. Roman asks where Stefano is. Tony has no idea. Once he has found Anna, he informs
her of his plan to take back the empire and the DiMera name. Anna does not share his enthusiasm ...
- Over coffee, Chloe and Nicole decide that Sami is to blame for
their relationship woes.

- Back at the DiMera mansion, EJ and Sami have returned. Sami
finds the broken chess piece and notes it is the queen, like the queen
of the night! That means Stefano has been there and they should not remain as it is not safe. Enter Lucas. He is there to get his daughter and leave!

- Meanwhile, at the hospital, John fawns over Marlena, who stares at him and asks who he is ...!

- Downstairs at the hospital, the Salem P.D. are aware that the ventilation system is now functional but what the heck is going on? Enter Nicole, who spies EJ and Sami still getting hot and heavy on
the monitor! EJ thinks they should stop. They do. Downstairs, Abe
is now convinced that the whole fiasco is Stefano's doing and tells Lexie as much. Enter Kate, who wants answers from Roman. She
is in a state when she hears that Stefano is up there. Now he will
try to exact revenge on Lucas for shooting EJ!
- Meanwhile, Lucas manages to revive Chloe, who doesn't feel well. He fears that it ain't over yet. When they step into the hallway, there stands Stefano before them! Lucas is ready to protect Chloe. Stefano smugly shows them footage of Sami and EJ together, from his cell phone. They are not surprised. Lucas tells the phoenix to go to hell.
- Steve and Kayla pound on the locked door, calling out for help.
And where is their baby? Kayla cries that Stefano likely took him. Patch vows that if that is the case, he will kill him. Kayla is simply devastated. Moments later, a crying infant is heard. Patch tries to
open the door, but cannot. Lucas and Chloe hear the commotion
and make for the door. Kayla gives Lucas the code. He enters it and presto, everybody is free! Now it is time to locate that crying baby!  The couples head in different directions. Patch and Kayla find the baby in a storage room. He seems alright, but what is that strange mark on his wrist that wasn't there before?
- Abe and Roman finally get into the stairwell. EJ and Sami venture downstairs to safety, where Nicole awaits. Lexie is none too pleased
to see brother EJ with Sami and suggests Nicole go after him anyway. Nicole isn't sure. Sami leaves to be checked out by docs, leaving EJ and Nicole alone. He is happy to see her. She tells him what she saw on the not so candid camera. News also spreads about what Marlena had done to Stefano. Sami returns and suggests EJ get checked out
by docs as well.
- Upstairs, Abe and Roman burst into Stefano's empty room. His Phoenixness appears on the television as he welcomes them, though they are late. He goes on to state he wants Marlena arrested for his attempted murder, or else!
- Once Lucas and Chloe are safely downstairs, Kate brings up Sami and EJ. Lucas does not care. He and Sami are finished. He is moving forward with his life. Meanwhile Nicole stares at the monitor, as she considers what to do next ...

At the hospital, John gets the ventilation going as Tony tends
to Anna, who is having trouble breathing. All of a sudden, Stefano's voice comes on the intercom and taunts John that it is too late! John turns his rage on the speaker it comes from and then races into
another room, where he encounters none other than young Stefano! He claims that John's mother Colleen ruined his life and runs away. John follows and soon encounters papa Santo. Santo says Stefano
was a nice boy until what happened with Colleen. Plus, Santo never even knew she was pregnant! Papa Santo does have a request. He wants John to stop leading his life the way he is now, so that he does not become cold like Santo and Stefano did. It is clear that John still has mother issues. Santo says Marlena can help him. John scowls he does not need Marlena. Cue Old John, who appears to tell him he
does need Marlena  and that's a fact! Old John also points out they
did not need the DiMera money, as they were already rich. New John should have walked away from it. Old John adds that Marlena will be able to make him the man he once was. He gives him a pep talk and disappears. Old John is moved ...

Anna is feeling better and she and Tony wonder where John went. Tony states he will make sure the dastardly phoenix gets what he deserves. Anna worries.

In her room, Marlena is stunned to see an apparition of her murdered sister Samantha. Marlena informs her of her dire situation but admits she felt that Stefano deserved what she gave to him. Samantha is surprised, considering that she was the bad twin, not Marlena. Blondie explains she has done it all for John. Samantha implies that John is the problem. Marlena remembers the happy times. She is determined to help John. Exit Samantha, after giving her a pep talk. Marlena feels
the strength to finally reach the antidote and injects herself with it!!

Meanwhile, Stefano is with baby Joe, and announces he has plans in store for him. He hands him over to Dr. Rolf, who is honored to be back in action with the phoenix and assures him he will indeed carry out all his instructions ...
