Slut To Slut

Mimi and Shawn are at the hospital to see how the fertilization went. Lexie smiles and says, "We should know pretty soon." Mimi rambles about all the things that could go wrong. "There is no reason not to stay positive," says Lexie.

"Even with you as my doctor," asks Mimi. Lexie tells them she will check back with them in a while. She goes into her office. Shawn and Mimi hug.

Lexie thanks Abe for coming. She tells him she's thinking about having another child. Abe points out it was hard enough to have Theo, and that was before his problem. Lexie thinks there may be a way to deal with his ED.

Sami and Austin are at Chez Rouge. Austin talks about the honeymoon. Sami is distant. She's still thinking about karma and things catching up with her. Austin tries to reassure her. He vows to do something to put her in a better mood as he leaves the table and tells her to think good thoughts. Sami says, "Austin you don't know all the things I've done."

Jennifer asks Abby what she means about wanting to have a baby. They argue about who gets to run Abby's life. Abby brings up a good point: Jennifer wants Abby to do one thing while Jennifer does another. Frankie walks in and asks what's wrong. "I just wish Jack were here," says Jennifer, "He would know how to handle this."

Jack asks the doctor if the procedure is working. The Doc says it's too early to tell.

John and Marlena talk about going back to Salem. "I can't wait to get back to our friends, our family, the idiocy," says Marlena. Marlena hopes Bo and Hope can get back together too. Nothing can stand in the way of true love.

Bo works on Hope. Nothing has been stronger than their love. Hope loves him too. "Then we can make it through this," says Bo.

Abe says, "I'm trying to come to terms with who I am now and what I can never do again. It doesn't do any good for you to get my hopes up. I know you helping Shawn and Mimi with this IVF process has reminded you how much you want another child. I want another child too. And Theo thinks the only thing he wants for his birthday is a brother or sister. But I can't give you another baby and I can't meet your sexual needs."

Lexie flashes back to hot times with Tek. She tells him he chooses not to meet her needs, "Sex isn't one specific act."

Abe says men are raised to believe their masculinity is tied to their ability to perform, "If you would have had a mastectomy because of your cancer scare, you wouldn't be any less desirable to me, but would that make a difference to you?" Lexie gets the point. Abe suggests a quiet romantic dinner. Lexie agrees. She goes to check on Shawn and Mimi.

Outside, Lexie phones Helen and asks about Mimi.

Mimi is nervous. Lexie comes out all smiles. Helen will let them know as soon as she hears. Mimi says, "We should have waited at home like normal people."

"We're not normal," says Shawn, beating Prevuze to the punch. He has an idea what they can do while they wait.

Jack says he already had things worked out, "What if Jennifer has already moved on?" The doctor suggests calling her to find out. He drops the phone on Jack's chest. Jack grimaces in pain, "Ouch! There goes the spleen again." Jack contemplates making the call.

Jennifer says, "But Jack isn't coming back, and now I have to figure out what to do with Abby on my own."

"I'm here to help," says Frankie."

"I can't believe the way she is acting," says Jennifer. They discuss her appearance on 'Sluts of Salem,' and Chelsea's predicament. "At least she has a great lawyer," says Jennifer.

"Did she fire me," asks Frankie, "Besides, she doesn't need a lawyer, she needs a miracle."

Frankie tells Jennifer Bo went to see Hope. If they get back together, Chelsea will probably go to jail.

Hope says, "I want to work things out." She pulls away, "But your daughter killed our son. You lied about it and covered up for her."

Bo insists it was an accident. The brat's future is on the line. Hope says because of the brat, their son has no future. Bo tells her, "When a family goes through something like this, they need each other, but you disappeared. And then asked me for a divorce. I never thought I would lose you."

"That's not what you said," says Hope.

"What are you talking about," says Bo, "Didn't you get my email?"

Sami looks at her flaming dessert. It makes her feel better. She thinks it's too decadent. Austin says that's where confessions and treadmills come in. Sami remembers her confession.

Lexie and Abe walk in. Sami sees them and says she may have just gotten a sign from God.

Lexie sees Sami. She tells Abe she thinks they should go somewhere else. "How can we," says Abe, "This is the only restaurant in town."

Mimi and Shawn look at all the babies in the nursery. She imagines holding a baby of her own. In her fantasy, Shawn brings Mimi and the kid ball caps. Mimi can't believe she's a mother. "You are," says Shawn, "And we'll be a family for all the Days Of Our Lives." He wheels her out.

Mimi snaps out of it and says, "It's really gonna happen, isn't it?"

"Of course," Shawn promises.

The nurse comes up to them and tells them Dr. Ross has some news for them. Oh, the anticipation!

Abby computes. She sees her picture on the 'Sluts of Salem' site. Jennifer knocks. Abby hesitates, but opens the door before Jennifer breaks it down. "We have to talk," says Jennifer.

Abby asks, "Mother to daughter, or slut to slut?" Abby tells her she just wants to be left alone. Jennifer leaves and goes downstairs. Frankie tells her Abby knows she cares. She's a good kid. He proposes a toast. Jennifer isn't in a festive mood. She picks up her phone to call Hope.

Bo wants to know why Hope thought he wanted a divorce. Hope says, "You were protecting Billie and Chelsea." He says he can't turn back time. He tells her it seems like their problems have been too great and maybe they should just face the inevitable, but what is inevitable to him is their marriage.

Hope's phone interrupts. Bo begs her to trust him. She goes off to take the call. John comes up and asks how it's going. He asks Bo if he told Hope about the trial date changing. The dimwit insists he will tell her. Too late. Hope announces the call was Jennifer and explodes, "When were you going to tell me the trial date was moved up? How dare you stand here and say you love me... that we should trust each other and once again you're lying to me and keeping secrets." She gives him a shove.

Prevuze

Abe suggests switching seats so Lexie can't see Sami. Lexie excuses herself. Sami sees Lexie leave and makes a beeline to the rest room. She tells Lexie they need to talk. Lexie tells Sami she heard she manipulated Austin into proposing. Sami apologizes for putting Lexie in an awkward position. She's worried about Lexie and her cancer. Lexie insists she doesn't have it. Sami tells her to get retested.

Lexie asks, "And you are saying this because..."

Sami remembers her conversation with Alex. Sami says, "I just think you should get retested, Lexie."

Lexie says, "And I know why. OMG, Sami!"

Mimi doesn't want to let Shawn down. Dr. Ross comes in. Mimi asks, "Is the egg OK?"

"It's no longer an egg," says Dr. Ross. Shawn and Mimi fall apart. Shawn comforts Mimi and promises they will keep trying.

Jack agonizes. He has to make sure he is cured before going home. He has to trust he won't be too late. He imagines arriving home. Jennifer comes downstairs and sees him. "Back from the dead again," she says, "I wish you'd remember to bring the trash cans back from the curb whenever you return from the dead." He explains the cure, but senses something is wrong. He asks if she and Frankie are together.

Fade to Jennifer staring out the window. Frankie asks how Hope is doing. Jennifer says she and Bo have a lot to work through, just like her and Abby. Jennifer calls herself a hypocrite.

Frankie says, "A little hypocrisy never hurt anyone. If you want to postpone the wedding it's OK."

Hope lectures Bo. She thinks he didn't want her to know the date had been moved. "You told me how much you love me and how we belong together," says Hope, "You are a hypocrite. Once again you have chosen Billie and Chelsea."

"I was going to tell you," whines Bo, "But we had more important things to talk about."

Hope nukes, "NOTHING IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN THAT! Why didn't you tell me? You didn't want me to know!"

Bo admits, "When I first found out, I didn't. I wanted to protect my daughter."

Lexie thinks Sami wants her to be retested because she wants her to have cancer. Sami insists that's not the case. She asks if Lexie still has the lump. Lexie tells her lumps don't go away overnight. Sami begs her to be retested. Lexie walks away.

Austin comes up and asks what's going on.

Mimi is distraught. Dr. Ross explains the egg is now a pre-embryo. She shows them on the computer. Mimi says to Shawn, "Look, our baby." Kiss.

Shawn wants to know when they can implant. Dr. Ross says the mass has to reach about 100 cells before they can do that. She leaves. Mimi giggles, "We finally have a real chance at having our baby."

Sami insists nothing was going on between her and Lexie. She wanted her to be retested but Lexie wouldn't listen.

Austin says, "She's a doctor... she should know."

"She's a bad doctor," says Sami. Dang! Prevuze gets aced out of a good zinger again. "Don't you know about all the bad diagnoses she's made? I just want her to be retested, that's all."

"This is the Sami I love," says Austin, "The loving and caring Sami. I'm proud you're going to be my wife."

I think Salem is in another dimension. Not too different from THE TWILIGHT ZONE, so all this stuff is very normal. - Austin Peck

Lexie huffs. Abe wants to know what's wrong. She tells him about the conversation with Sami. She doesn’t want to talk about it. Abe thinks marriage will be good for Sami. Lexie insists Sami will lose Austin, "She'll screw this up like she does everything else."

Jacks' fantasy continues. Jennifer tells him she waited for him. He is the only man she could ever love. Kiss. Fade to Jack's machines. He thinks it could be that way if he just believes.

Jennifer doesn't want to postpone the wedding, if Frankie will have her. He says he has been wanting to marry her since they were teens. Abby comes down as they kiss.

John suggests checking out and going back home. That sounds wonderful to Marlena. They walk off into the woods.

Hope tells Bo it's over. He insists they can make it through this. Hope says no. She tells Bo to go home. He and Billie will need each other when the brat's trial starts. She vows to go back and see that Chelsea is put away for as long as the law allows, "We will never ever be together again." FF HoBo.


Previews

Abby tells Jennifer, "I'd appreciate it if you didn't use Dad's memory to try and manipulate me into staying in your house and having no life."

John tells Marlena, "They can't blame you for your behavior."

Lexie says, "If anyone is to blame, it's me."

Shawn hugs Hope, "I'm glad you're home." Hope says, "This isn't my home. Not anymore."

Bo tells Billie, "She's here and just itching to testify at Chelsea's trial."

I LOL over the picture of Mimi and her staying positive in spite of Lexie being her doctor. HAHAHAHA

And hey! Any of the Daze actors should feel honored to be in Prevuze. It's some of the scripts that should cause their embarrassment!

Great Prevuze today. :D

LOL at Jen's blase response to Jack's return in the Prevuism.

Would you be stopping to answer a phone right in the middle of an intense conversation with your soon-to-be ex that you hadn't seen for months??

Too bad about getting aced out of a couple of pithy comments, but Prevuze got plenty of zingers in anyway. Great job!
