He says there is no place else he would rather be unless she would rather him not be there. She tells him to stop being so brave, it is only making her feel worse. He tells her he doesn’t blame her for anything that has happened or for anything she has done. She tells him she kept him at a distance and now he has saved her life.

Phillip tells Belle she needs to get well. To do that she needs to get some rest meaning she needs to sleep so he says he is going to leave and let her sleep. When he is about to go out the door she stops him telling him she doesn’t want him to leave. She thanks him for staying. She says it is nice seeing him there first thing when she wakes up.

Marlena and Hope come in and ask him if he is ok. John says he doesn’t know. He can’t remember anything because of the drugs. He asks her if she talked to the doctor about lowering the dosage. She says she is waiting on him now.

The doctor walks in and John tells him whenever Marlena asks for something on his behalf to do it. She pulls the doctor on the side and asks him to lower his dosage.

She says she has to get away from Stefano. He asks her how he can hurt her if he is there in his cell locked up with him. She is shocked saying she can’t believe it.

She wants to know how he is calling from his cell in prison. He tells her Stefano is out right now and he went through his things and found his cell phone. She tells him Stefano has arms long enough he can reach through those bars and get hold of anything or anyone. About that time EJ walks in and asks Sami something and Lucas hears him. He asks her who is that there with her, is that her loving husband. He asks her again if that is EJ when she tells him she can’t talk anymore to him and she hangs up. She tells EJ that Lucas told her his new cell mate is Stefano.

Lucas is about to make another call when he hears Stefano coming back in. He puts the phone back where it was before getting caught. When Stefano comes back in Lucas tells him he never told him exactly what it was that he would want him to do for this so called deal. Stefano tells him he is going to need a little help getting his grandson away from his parents. He asks Stefano if he wants him to kidnap Samantha’s son. Stefano says yes that is what he wants. He says he can’t do that to Sami.

The guard comes in and gets Lucas to go stretch his legs. When he is gone Stefano takes out his phone and calls Sami after he sees that Lucas called her while he was out of the cell. When she answers she thinks it is Lucas and she tells him he has got to stop calling on Stefano’s phone. Stefano says something letting her know it is him calling and she hangs the phone up and throws it.
