Sami continues to cry in front of the fireplace while Lucas tries to soothe her. He asks if she is positive that she is pregnant. She says yes, she did a pregnancy test that turned out positive and although she wants to have his child, she's afraid. Lucas confesses that he has always wanted to have another child with her, and he knows that Will will be happy with the news. He thinks that one day they'll be able to tell their child how he or she was conceived, but Sami expresses discomfort with the conversation. Lucas feels Sami's tummy and tells her he feels the bond already! Lucas goes out to buy he and Sami something to toast with while she gets a call from EJ. He asks her if she's been dreaming of him and tells her that he's there for her. "Things are far from over between you and I," he promises. She tells him that she knows he shot John, but EJ doesn't admit to anything. He congratulates her on her award and asks her how it feels to be loved. He starts to talk about the love a parent has for their children and she cries out, "Shut up and don't call me again." She slams the phone down and sobs to herself that she had to do it. Lucas arrives home and asks her what's wrong. He assumes she doesn't want the baby and tells her not to worry. "We'll find a way," he promises her. As she continues to sob, Lucas demands to know what is eating her up inside, but she doesn't come clean. She tells him she is afraid of things beyond her control, but Lucas promises that nothing can come between them now. He pulls out crackers, caviar, cheese and virgin pina colada, from a bag. He wants to celebrate their new edition, which makes Sami smiles. She thanks him for making her feel hopeful.
At home, in front of a fireplace, Lucas and Sami kiss passionately. Lucas is proud of her award. He holds it as he tells her that she has really proven that she has changed. "I know that I can trust you with your life," he tells her. Sami appears upset, so Lucas asks her if she is hiding something or lying, like she used to. She looks down and asks why he thinks she's lying to him. He says that Philip was crazed to come into the pub to accuse people of helping Belle and Shawn take Claire. She promises that she had nothing to do with Belle and Shawn running off with Claire, but admits she would have helped if she was asked! They discuss Kate, and that Sami doesn't trust her, even if she did apologize to her in public! He asks her to meet Kate halfway, so she agrees to try. Lucas finds it sexy that she'd agree to this and starts to kiss her and make love with her when she stops him and asks him if he's happy. He assures her that he's very happy but she admits that although she is happy, she is worried that once the accolades are gone, she will go back to the same old Sami, who won't be able to keep their family together. Lucas tells her that he believes in her and the two resume lovemaking until Sami stops to run to the bathroom to throw up! Roman calls Lucas to ask if they've heard from Lexi. He tells Sami that Lexi is missing, and he shares the news that Tek is the one who saw EJ shoot John, not Lexi. He tells her the entire story, and Sami says, "Oh my God, it was him. EJ arranged for them to disappear." She thinks that it makes sense, but Lucas says that they probably didn't want anyone to find them. Sami reminds Lucas that Lexi would never leave her son, and worries that they're next on the list of people that EJ wants to get rid of. As they're talking, Sami runs to the bathroom again to throw up. When she comes back, she starts to cry and tells Lucas that she's pregnant.
At their apartment, Sami and Lucas are dressed for Sami's citation at the Brady Pub. Sami finds Lucas hard to resist and starts unbuttoning his shirt and kissing him, but he reluctantly stops her. He knows that they have to make it to the pub on time. Sami apologizes for what happened last night with EJ's call, and they kiss but are interrupted by Will, who takes a photograph of his parents kissing! He shows them his new shirt that he had specially made for today. It reads, "My mom is Sami Brady and yours Isn't!"
Roman, Lucas, Will and Sami arrive at the Brady Pub for Sami's citation. Sami gets a round of applause, and Chelsea goes to Sami to ask how she received this citation. She asks, "You got any tips for a 'pain in the butt' in training? Sami tells her that the Brady's will give her a lot of chances. She encourages her to prove who she is and she'll get a chance like she did. Sami sees Marlena and runs to her to inquire about John's health. There is no change, Marlena tells her.
Kayla asks Marlena if she has heard from Belle or Shawn and Marlena admits that Belle came to her. She relays what they told her and says it's too late - they're taking Claire! Bo comes back to Kayla and tells her that he didn't get a hold of Steve.
Kate goes to Will to joke with him about his t-shirt but she gets a cold reception. Will tells Kate to watch herself or she'll lose them as a family.
Lucas comes out of Sami's shower, happy to see an amorous Sami. He moves in for a kiss, but during their kiss, their romance is put on pause when she accidentally steps on his foot! He complains, so she helps get him to the sofa, where they resume kissing. He stops for a moment in amazement. He tells her again how proud of her that he is. Sami appears nervous and doesn't want to discuss the citation or her efforts. She wants to talk about their future, but instead he asks her to settle for a make out session. Between kisses, they encounter issues with Lucas' broken leg and decide to move to the bedroom. They're interrupted by the phone, so Sami dashes to get it. She picks up and asks them to make it quick. EJ answers, "I prefer nice and slow, myself…. How's my favorite girl?" Sami is taken aback, and asks him, "What do you want?" He tells her he thinks of their special rendezvous a lot lately so she spits out, "I was saving Lucas' life and that's all." She wants to hang up but he doesn't let her. She starts to tell him that she knows that he shot John but switches gears and asks him to hurry up and tell him what he wants. He tells her that her family has been sniffing around** She assures him that she never told anyone that she saw him and doesn't want any more trouble. He asks her to keep her mouth shut and says, while we're on the subject of mouths…. "Disgusted, Sami stops him in his tracks and demands that he never call her again."I never want to hear your disgusting, slimy voice again," she says, through gritted teeth. Just then, Lucas comes back out of the bedroom, puzzled. He asks who she's speaking with. Sami lies and tells him it was a sponsor from Talladega and he was being really pushy. Lucas is skeptical, because of what he overheard. He reminds her that she can trust him and that nothing she says will matter. He demands that she tell him who was on the phone, so she comes clean. "It was EJ," she says through tears. Lucas wonders why EJ would call, so she tells him that she doesn't know why EJ does the things that he does, but she does know that he wants to upset and anger her. He encourages her to call EJ, but frightened, she blows it off. Still crying, she tells Lucas that she doesn't want to jeopardize how proud that he and Will are of her and if she calls the police on him, she worries that he'll figure out a way to ruin things for them. Lucas holds her and comforts her.
Sami calls Roman over to the apartment. Roman has many questions for Sami that she can't answer. She's tense and upset and can't remember what EJ said exactly. Roman tells her not to worry. He'll find EJ. He reminds her of who she is and how much she can handle. The citation is coming up, he says. "It's Sami's day!" He tries to perk her up! Roman leaves and Lucas asks Sami to forget EJ and concentrate on their wonderful life together. Sami promises she will and tells him that she'll do anything for him. He smiles and tells him that he has a request. She giggles and they start kissing. He tells her he loves his new Sami!
Marlena visits John in his hospital room. She talks to John about Sami's heroic efforts to save Lucas. He doesn't respond, but she continues on and says she's very proud of Sami. Sami enters the room and the two women hug. Sami notices that Marlena is tired, and Marlena explains what happened at the courthouse. Sami is visibly upset for Belle, and starts to call her on her cell phone - in the hospital - but Marlena stops her. She says that Belle is resting and she can talk to her soon. Sami tries to cheer up Marlena and surprises her when she says, "John Black has the heart of a lion. He won't give up on you. Don't give up on him." She goes on to apologize for being wrong about John all these years, and Marlena is impressed. She says, "This is the nicest thing you've ever said about John!" Sami wistfully says, "I wish I could go back in time and tell him that I love him." Marlena encourages her to "Tell him now!" Sami does so! She tells him that she treasures the love that John shares with her mom, and thinks that she wanted to be loved like that too, but didn't realize it until now that she was loved this way! She tells him, "You didn't just put up with me. You got me! You still do! You always stood by me." She struggles not to cry when she tells him that he was as much of a father to her as her own dad and is sorry she never told him this until now. "You mean a lot to me," she says. "I love you, John." She breaks down, and Marlena comes to her side to hold her. Marlena tells Sami that she's proud of her, and Sami tells Marlena that she's receiving an award for her heroic efforts. She's humble about it but Marlena is thrilled and promises to be there. When she gives Sami change to purchase a newspaper, Sami points out the Italian coin in her wallet. Marlena smiles and explains that this coin is similar to the one that Marlena and John threw into the fountain in Italy. She tells Sami the story and places it on the bedside table, and Sami leaves to see Lucas.
Kate goes to visit Lucas in the hospital, and finds Lucas, Will and Sami outside the hallway playing around on Lucas' wheelchair! Will stops short, and Sami goes flying off of the chair, laughing. They're having a great time until Kate starts in on Sami for being 'classless'. Sami tells Kate that this is what families do together. They have fun! They all get Lucas settled into bed while Will shows them all a newspaper article about Sami's heroic efforts in saving Lucas.
Roman drops by to give Sami some good news! The Salem PD has bestowed a citation on her! She is given the "Order of the good Samaritan!" Kate snorts and says, "Now I've seen it all." Lucas asks Kate to keep quiet, and so she takes Roman out into the hallway to tell him that when she went into work today, the doors of her office were locked. He explains that EJ's assets were frozen. Kate thinks that this is appalling and wants access to her business accounts and her office. He tells her that she knew that she was in business with a known criminal yet she did nothing about it. Kate stomps off.
Will goes to the hospital gift shop to get more newspapers, while Sami tells Lucas that she needs to change her life, because she doesn't deserve all of this attention that she has been getting since she saved him. Lucas disagrees. "You got a chance to start over with everybody," he says. They half joke that she should try not to blow it this time!
Roman comes back into the room, and Will follows. He has an armful of newspapers that he wants to give away to his family and friends. Sami laughs as Will tells her that his friends think she's cool! Dr. Callaway arrives to tell Lucas that he can go home! Roman discusses the award with Sami and eventually agrees to have the award given to Sami at the Brady Pub so that she can impress her family. Roman hugs her and tells her he is proud of her.
In the hospital, Lucas sees that Sami is in the paper. He reads the paper to her and tells her that she's a hero, but she laughs it off. She thinks about EJ forcing her to have sex with him. Kate grabs the paper and agrees with Sami that everyone gets their 15 seconds of fame and then it's over. Billie walks in and calls Sami a hero and Kate changes the subject to ask about Billie's living situation. Billie shares the news that she was kicked out of Bonnie's home, so Kate offers to put them up. Billie appreciates it but Sami doesn't think it's a good idea. She has a better idea. There is an apartment for rent in her building - Lucas'. (The guy who was to take the apartment didn't work out.) Sami starts to make a few barbs to Kate but stops herself and promises that it's a great idea for Billie and Chelsea move in next door. Billie thanks them and hugs Sami. She runs home to pack! Kate is the only one miserable! Someone from the Spectator comes to ask to take a photo of Sami and this further annoys Kate. He takes a photo of Lucas and Sami while Kate runs off. The photographer takes a few shots. Afterwards, they play nerf basketball and then start to 'make out', and have a tickle fight. Lucas tells Sami he loves his little hero, and we see Kate walk in.
