Carrie finds Abigail in Austin’s arms in their ski lodge room. To Austin’s horror, Abigail tells Carrie that she and Austin are in love. Melanie quickly gets her friend out of the room before she makes things worse. Austin does damage control with his wife, explaining he doesn’t love Abigail – she’s just experiencing a crush that has grown out of hand. He swears he’s in love with Carrie and only Carrie. Meanwhile, Melanie tries desperately to keep her friend from ruining the Reeds’ marriage but Abigail won’t give up on Austin. When she realizes that Carrie is about to forgive Austin, Abigail blurts out that he made love to her. Austin is unable to refute. Carrie slaps him hard, and then storms out.

At the hospital, a comatose Bo remains in bad shape. Billie, full of concern, gets an update from Daniel before rushing to be by her ex’s side. Billie, Victor and Maggie support each other as they worry for Bo. Later, Hope manages to get a call through to Bo’s room and Billie answers. She begins to update Hope when Bo’s monitors go off. As Billie screams for medical help, Hope hears that Bo is dying! John and Hope learn they can’t leave Alamainia without the passports they were forced to surrender to the judge when they filed for divorce. They won’t be returned to them until the two week period is up. Worried about Bo and Marlena, they frantically try to figure out how to get home. All their ideas lead to dead ends except one – they’ll use their old prowess as art thieves and steal the passports from the government office. It’s their only hope.

Billie is on the phone with Hope, emotionally telling her that Bo is dying as he flatlines. Lexie rushes in, telling Billie to leave the room as she attempts to resuscitate Bo. Waiting anxiously, Billie tries to call Hope back, but can’t get through. Kate arrives at the hospital and comforts her daughter. Lexie informs them Bo is stable, but in bad shape. While they’re waiting to see him, Kate and Billie briefly discuss Kate’s marriage to Stefano. Kate covers her relationship with Ian when Billie brings him up and comments he has a reputation as a womanizer and a ruthless businessman. Later, Billie emotionally tells Bo he has to pull through. Meanwhile, in Alamainia, Hope is frantic; having heard from Billie that Bo could be dying. She is driven to get home to her husband but she and John are unable to reach anyone by phone. John and Hope break into the Alamainian government building so they can retrieve their passports and return to Salem. As they conduct their search, the door opens, the lights come on and it appears they’ve been caught!

Lucas and Will have an emotional reunion. Lucas reveals he’s engaged, then tries to draw his son out about what is bothering him. Will avoids and Lucas gives him space. Lucas does express his disapproval about Will working for EJ. Will reluctantly reveals EJ has been blackmailing him because he knows Will is the one who really shot him all those years ago, not Lucas. Lucas is furious. Will surprises his dad when he says he likes working for EJ; he enjoys the excitement and power. Lucas vows he will not stand by and watch his son lose his soul to the DiMeras!

EJ offers to have the ballot tampering charges dropped against Abe if he agrees to let Lexie go. Abe, of course, turns him down, vowing to fight to win his wife back. EJ also lets Roman know his position as police commissioner is on shaky ground. Carrie returns to Salem and has a meltdown over her marriage. She confides in Rafe about learning that Austin slept with Abigail. It’s inconceivable to her that Austin made her feel so rotten for kissing Rafe when the truth is he did something far worse! Rafe comforts her as her emotions shift from rage to worry. She thinks somehow she caused this because she pushed Austin away. She looks at Rafe and confesses: Austin may have cheated on her with Abigail but she cheated too … emotionally. She fell in love with Rafe. Desperate Austin races to find Carrie and runs into Billie instead. The two siblings are happily reunited. When she learns about the debacle with Abigail, however, she reacts with anger, asking him what he was thinking. Austin owns what he did with Abigail, unaware she’s been lying to him. Billie rallies Austin and vows to help him repair his marriage.

Melanie and Abigail return to town, as well. Abigail is anxious to find Austin. She’s convinced she and Austin can now be together since the “truth” is out. Melanie sits her friend down to tell her she’s not being realistic. She’s rationalizing all this, letting an obsession rule her judgment. Austin wants Carrie back and Abigail needs to get that through her head. Melanie is stunned when Abigail slips up and talks about what it will be like making love to Austin for the first time. Melanie realizes she has lied about how far things went. Caught, Abigail explains the lie got out of hand but insists it has served a good purpose. Melanie can’t believe her ears and insists Abigail has to find Austin and tell him the truth – now.  John and Hope have broken into the government office to retrieve their passports and are stunned when they’re caught in the act by none other than Stefano himself. He has their passports and no amount of Hope’s insisting that she needs to return to Bo is getting Stefano to budge. Police sirens are heard approaching, and John and Hope realize they’re going to be arrested, but Stefano offers to get them away before the police arrive. They know taking him up on the offer is a risk but they’re not in a position to find another way out. He does indeed get them to safety but again refuses to hand over the passports, telling them he may need them for something here in Alamainia. He goes and Hope, unable to return to Bo, is beyond frustrated. Austin hears Carrie confess she loves Rafe. Hurt, Austin wants to know if Rafe returns her feelings. Rafe avoids an answer. Austin doesn’t know how to deal with the fact that his wife is in love with another man, and he leaves. Carrie almost follows, but then admits she doesn’t want to go after Austin. She wants to be with Rafe. Rafe confesses he also has feelings for her. In spite of those feelings, they are both still married. Carrie owes it to Austin and herself to salvage her marriage if possible, just as Rafe will try to work things out with Sami. Despite their intense longing, they leave each other to get on with their lives.

Melanie tries hard to get through to Abigail and convince her it’s wrong to continue lying to Austin that they slept together, especially now that his marriage is on the line. Abigail still believes Austin cares for her and is afraid if she tells him the truth now, he’ll hate her. Melanie convinces her that if she and Austin are ever to have any chance, she has to be honest now and tell him the truth. Austin arrives to hear them talking. Abigail seems on the verge of confessing. Brady confides in Marlena about Madison’s 180 after telling him she was going to leave Ian to be with him. Marlena senses Ian and Madison have a very complicated relationship. She cautions Brady will have to be supportive of Madison to get her away from Ian. Brady believes Madison is worth the fight. Meanwhile, Ian undercuts Madison at work, cleverly manipulating her and making her feel insecure. He blames her poor decisions on being distracted by Brady. Madison lashes back, believing Ian resents what she has found with Brady. He cuts her down, insisting she would be nothing without him. If she doesn’t get her act together, he’ll take her down along with Brady. Brady shows up to persuade Madison to be with him. Madison makes it clear she doesn’t think she and Brady were right for each other. She wounds Brady, hoping to protect him from Ian. She tells him he’s not enough of a challenge for her. She gives Brady back his engagement ring. Rocked, Brady takes the ring and leaves.

Sneaky Gabi deletes it and invites Chad to have dinner with her.  With encouragement from Melanie, Abigail tries to confess her duplicity to Austin but she decides Carrie should be a part of their conversation. Austin balks at this, saying she’s with Rafe and it doesn’t take long for Abigail to realize there is trouble in paradise. She decides not to confess. She tries to get Austin to open up and says if Carrie is with another man, there’s no reason they can’t be together. Austin reacts and warns Abigail that he will never be with her. Melanie is miffed Chad hasn’t shown up for dinner. With encouragement from Kayla she tries to call him but gets no answer.

Later, Melanie walks by and wonders why Chad never got back to her. Chad explains he never got her message and they end up leaving together while a jealous Gabi stews.
