-At University Hospital, Greta bumps into Eric in the hallway. She is thrilled to see he is finally being released. She says she was just about to come and see him as she was just coming from checking on Bo. Eric asks how his uncle is doing. Greta tells him that he had another violent outburst but they managed to calm him. They still don't know what is causing it but it is having a bad effect on his heart rate and blood pressure.

Eric hates that his family and friends have been through so much. Greta comforts him with the fact that he is doing well and his loved ones have that to be grateful for. Greta asks where Nicole is. She figured she would be right by his side. Eric says that she had a meeting to go to but isn't sure if he should discuss what it's about since it's personal for her. Greta understands.

She tells Eric she is happy he is feeling better and to call if he needs anything. She would like to get a cup of coffee or something with him. He says he will call her and they embrace before she leaves. Eric then is told he has a phone call at the nurses station and he goes to take it

Later, as Eric gets off the phone, Nicole appears behind him. Eric sees that she looks upset about something and asks if she is ok. Nicole changes the subject and asks if he is ok. Eric tells her that he was given instructions to just take it easy and call if he has any severe headaches but, other then that, he is good to go to leave the hospital. He is more worried about her, though.

Nicole says she is fine and doesn't think she can talk about it right now. Eric tells her he just got a phone call and it's good news. Nicole seems bothered by that and finally comes out saying she has bad news. Eric says his news can wait and tells Nicole to tell him what happened.

Nicole turns away, as she fight backs tears. She tells Eric that she was told that she is not a candidate for in-vitro. Eric tells her that it's ok. They can always look into adoption. Nicole says she wanted to carry his child and wanted it to be a part of both of them. She blames Sami for this as she would've still been able to have children if not for her. Eric reminds Nicole of her promise not to go there. Nicole apologizes as Eric assures her he is just as happy adopting as many children as she wishes. They can start right away on looking into it. She smiles and asks if he is sure. He nods and says it's fine.

She asks what his news is. He doesn't know if it's a good time, given how hard of a day she has had. She insists he tell her. Eric explains that Kate was who he was talking to at the nurses station. Since his father is no longer John Black, he gave the rights to Basic Black to Kate and she has combined it with what was Austin Reed & Co to form Roberts & Associates. She was looking to hire a new photography team and she asked him to come aboard, remembering how good he was at Titan. He says he accepted the job and starts in a few days.

Nicole turns away, seemingly upset by the news. Eric asks if she is ok. Nicole puts up a front and says she is. Eric notes how she has hard a time searching for employment while he was still in the hospital. He just hopes it doesn't bother her since she gave up Highstyle for him. He still feels awful about that. Nicole assures him it's fine and that she will find something, eventually. It will all work out. Eric smiles and says things are coming together for them finally. He just hopes things get better for their loved ones too. They embrace but, unbeknowst to Eric, Nicole still seems secretly upset by Eric's news.

-Greta bumps into Frankie in another part of the hospital. He tells her that Bo is more relaxed now and that the doctors managed to sedate him after his latest outburst. They have no idea what is causing it. He wonders if Victor did mess with his head somehow. Greta says she hopes not and then turns away, while seeming a bit distracted. Frankie makes a comment that Greta seems lost in her own world a bit.

Greta apologizes. She has been thinking alot lately about the future. Eric is getting better and beginning his life with Nicole and so many of the people she cares about are going through hell right now. She really wishes she could do something more to help. Frankie says she is helping by just being there for them. She smiles but then adds that she spent so much time since coming back to Salem on helping Eric with his illness that she had no life of her own. She barely does anything as Princess except for write a few things here and there and fly to Paris for an event once in awhile.

Greta says she just isn't doing anything fulfilling. She wants to help people and be more active. She has so much money and she already volunteers and gives alot to charity. Frankie makes the suggestion of her forming her own business or something along those lines. Greta says she thought about that but knows nothing of business. She wants to be involved in something where she can influence people and give people who feel they have no voice a chance to be heard. She wants to help people and have an impact.

Frankie's eyes widen as he seems to be remembering something. He says he has an idea. A friend of his told him about something earlier. Frankie smiles and tells Greta he thinks she will be very interested in what his friend told him. Greta is curious and asks what it is. Frankie assures her she will love it and this may be the opportunity she is looking for.

-Kayla is on her way to Steve's room to check on him when she passes Shane. He says he is on his way up to check in with Roman. He asks how Bo is. Kayla says they calmed him but they still have no idea what is going on in his head. She hopes they get answers when he wakes up. Everyone keeps suggesting brainwashing but, she tells Shane they know that's not the case as Bo has been a part of the this secret operation with Roman, Shane, Abe, and the ISA. Shane tells her they will find out what is going on and will find a way to help Bo.

Shane leaves as Kayla enters Steve's room. Steve is lying in a deep sleep. Kayla sits down at his bedside and says she is here for him and isn't going anywhere. She assures him they will get through this.

Meanwhile, Steve begins to have another memory flash of being rushed through a dark tunnel with men in white around him. He is on a gurney. Eventually, the gurney is rolled into a small room where one of the men pulls out a syringe and the rest hold him down as he begins to stuggle to get off the table. His arms and legs are in restraints as he tries to pull free:

Steve: Let me go!!! STOP!!! NO!! I WON'T LET YO...WON'T LET YOU!!

The scene then shifts back to real time as Steve begins to lose it. He wails his arms at Kayla, sending her to the floor and begins to shake and move all over the place. Kayla calls for help and two male nurses come in and restrain him. Kayla gets a nurse to sedate him as she cresses his forehead, saying it will all be ok. She is here for him, just like he always was there for her in the past. Kayla notes how similar this is to Bo's condition and wonders if Steve is struggling with bad memories from his past or from his time when they thought he was "dead."

Steve opens his eyes a bit and looks at Kayla. His eyes are one of a person in deep pain and struggling to keep themself together:

Steve: Kayla...what is wrong with me?

Kayla: I don't know...but we'll help you. I''ll help you. I promise.

Steve: I don't want...you to get hurt.

Kayla: I won't. Nothing could keep me away from you. No matter what the risk. I love you. I'm not going anywhere. I promise.

-Shane enters Roman's ICU room. Roman asks how Bo is. Shane says not good, something is really troubling him. Shane tells Roman that Caroline and others think it could be Victor brainwashing him but, that can't be the case. They know it can't be as Bo was in league with them on the ISA operation. Roman agrees and is worried about his brother.

Shane tells Roman that it may be time for his family to learn the truth. They are going through hell and, the minute Bo is well enough, Abe will be pressured to arrest him. The mayor really wants to end the mafia violence in Salem and Bo was believed to be a part of it by the public. They need Bo on the outside to help them, not in jail. Roman agrees but worries that Victor could still be alive and Stefano and Ernesto are still out there.

Shane reminds Roman of the new threat-the MCF. That person is even more dangerous as they have no clue who they are and what they want. Roman agrees and says it is time to tell his loved ones everything. They will just need to find a way to make things work. They can't keep the people he loves in the dark any longer. Plus, he is really worried about his wife and her actions of late. He tells Shane to start gathering his loved ones and to tell them to come to his room. He is going to tell them everything tonight.

-Sami and Belle are in the hospital cafeteria. They sit down to take a break and get a bite to eat after checking on their uncles Bo and Steve and getting an update on Roman. They have also been searching for Marlena. Belle reminds Sami that it's become clear now that their mother is sick. They need to find her soon so they can help her before it's too late.

Sami says she still can't beleive what happened in their father's room. Belle says it was like she completely forgot the times she snapped at them and what happened at the New Year's Ball and everything after that. Sami wonders if she has something just like their late Aunt Samantha. Sami says she remembers thinking that before their mother fell into the volcano and was presumed dead. She was acting really crazy at that time and now it seems like she is trying to keep it a secret.

Belle disagrees and says she thinks their mother has no clue what is going on. The way she acted in that room was strange. Belle says that she and Aunt Kayla believed mom was trying to kill dad, just like when she aimed the gun at him at the ball before she knocked him out. Belle tells Sami that when she entered, mom just seemed different. It was not the same person who snapped at them. She was vulnerable and was showing remorse. She was acting like their real mother and couldn't beleive it hearing what she had done of late. Belle reiterates that they need to find her or whatever is wrong with her may get worse.

-On the pier, Marlena is walking all alone in the fog. She is an emotional wreck and is still stunned that she would snap at her daughters like she has been. She also can't beleive she would aim a gun at her husband and, the way it seemed, she was trying to kill her husband with that pillow before she regained her senses. She cries out to the skies above, asking what is wrong with her.

She can't understand why she would do these things and can't even remember doing any of them but trying to smother Roman with a pillow. She only remembers that because she had the pillow in her hand. The last thing she clearly remembers is Roman bringing her home to the Penthouse on Christmas Eve. Everything after that is a blur.

While Marlena is trying to piece together what is happening to her, someone is watching her. It's the MCF. Marlena gets up from a bench and begins to walk when she turns in the direction of the MCF. She jumps back in shock and starts to run away when the MCF grabs her. The figure holds her tightly, so much that Marlena is saying that the person is hurting her.

Marlena: What do you want? Please...just let me go.

The MCF then takes her by the arm and pull her away in the dark shadows of the night as the screen fades out.

On the Next Salem Lives...

Roman: It's time to tell you all the truth.

Maggie: First, Mickey and now Victor. Why? Why is this happening?!!

Marlena to a bartender: Hit me...and keep em coming.

I was hoping that Nicole and Eric could actually start their family :( Hopefully they will find a way to do that.

I love that you all have past characters in the blog...alot of my favorites; Shane, Greta, Frankie.

I forgot that Greta was dating Eric at one point, correct/

Looking forward to the next eppy... :)

One of the best part of this blog is the attention to detail and the relationships between the characters. I felt for Nicole. In the real world, it is hard right now to just find a job and it is awesome that you are portraying her frustration with finding a new one. I hope that they are able to have a baby. The relationship and interaction between Belle and Sami are real as they have been brought together in their concern for Marlena. Oh well, so I don't know who the MCF is, I will keep trying to figure it out! Excellent job with this episode.
