Birthday: September 28 1982
Philip arrives to Bo and Hope's table with an apology for being late. He wants to take responsibility for his actions, but Bo says nobody knows what was on the tape yet. Philip thinks it was wrong of Victor to guilt Bo into that situation, but Bo takes responsibility for his part. Suddenly, a woman arrives with papers for Philip. He reads them and finds out he has been subpoenaed by the grand jury.
Nearby, Hope sits with Morgan they discuss what happened at the church and Morgan is angry that Philip threatened to kill her father. Hope says he's a Kiriakis, and may have Victor's ambition and drive, but he's no killer.
Abe arrives at Brady pub and he tells Bo he needs that tape. Bo tells Abe that Philip was subpoenaed for what happened down at the docks. Bo knows Philip is a suspect in the investigation but he is innocent. He is sure John has something to do with this.
Someone looks inside the pub and Morgan jumps up and rushes outside. She calls out. "Daddy?" She searches the area, but the man is hiding - watching from nearby. Hope runs after her and finds out Morgan thought she saw Paul. Hope runs into the pub and tells Bo what happened and Abe, Bo, Hope and Philip follow Hope back outside to search for him. They don't find him.
Morgan and Philip play cards, by the Kiriakis pool. Morgan wins and asks how else she can kick his butt. Morgan's mother calls, but she ignores the call. She doesn't like the way her mom's dealing with her father's disappearance and doesn't think she truly cares what happened, though she acts like it. Philip thinks she could be doing this to protect herself and be strong for Morgan. This seems plausible for anyone else, to Morgan, but she knows better. She recalls better days when her parents were in love. Her mother's family was rich and her father's family was not poor, but her father started to resent her mother for her money. He wanted to prove himself as his own man. Morgan's mother loaned Paul money to start an internet company. It failed and Mrs. Hollingsworth never let him forget it. She lost respect for him and Paul hated it. They broke up, after the tension was unbearable. Her father and she have recently gotten closer, but they were never that close, previously. She blames John Black for her father's disappearance. Philip comforts her and he agrees to call the Salem PD for information. They kiss.
Kate and Victor arrive and ask Morgan to leave them, while they discuss how the press found out about the police tampering with evidence. Philip wants to go to the church but Kate and Victor don't think it's a good idea. Morgan returns with Victor's cell phone. Victor takes the call and Kate wheels him inside. Philip decides to come clean with Morgan. While he had nothing to do with Paul's disappearance, he did threaten him, and it was caught on tape. Morgan doesn't take it well, and yells at him, then slaps him. She races out of the house and past Kate, who thinks Philip's better off without her. Kate says if he did kill Paul, they'll protect him. Philip runs off after Morgan.
Later, Morgan shows up. She has released Henderson of his duties and will be tending to Philip. He's thrilled to hear. She massages him. He wants to make out, but Morgan doesn't want him to overexert himself… by kissing.
Morgan visits Philip at the hospital. They discuss Morgan's declaration of love and whether it's an impulse or not. Philip says he'd take a bullet for her again, in a heartbeat. He asks if she meant what she said and they kiss.
Morgan visits Philip. She feels bad about this whole thing. She thought she could get the truth from John. Philip reminds her John won't tell her anything. Morgan asks for forgiveness but there is nothing to forgive. He promises he'll find out what happened to Paul. Philip smiles and tells her he heard everything she said while he was unconscious. "Wow," says Morgan, dumbfounded. She tries to explain that she thought he was dying but Philip thinks it's wonderful! They got off on the wrong foot and things have grown so quickly but he too has something to tell her. He whispers in her ear and her eyes widen. She kisses him.
Morgan goes to an unconscious Philip and tells him if she could trade places with him, she would. She kisses him and tells him she's never felt this way about anyone. She thinks she's falling in love with him. Behind her, Chloe clears her throat. Morgan tells Chloe he's doing better. "I'm sure your love for him has saved his life," says Chloe, dryly. Hope interrupts and pulls Morgan outside. Chloe asks Philip how they ended up here. She will always be his friend and is trying not to be hurt but wished she had done all she could to keep him from getting involved with Morgan, so he wouldn't have gotten shot. She'll pray for him.
Outside Philip's room, Hope asks Morgan to go over the evidence once more. Once Morgan does that, Hope is confused as to where this proof is.
Morgan arrives back into Philip's room and she and Chloe make amends. Chloe wants Philip's happiness. If Morgan's right for Philip, she'll support it. Morgan isn't sure she's right for him, but they both agree that he deserves so much. Morgan promises not to hurt him and sits with him and flashes to a romantic dancing scene with Philip. After a while, Philip opens his eyes!
Bo and Hope take Morgan back to the station. She's annoyed that they still haven't found anything. Hope suggests that her father may have arranged his own disappearance. Morgan repeats that her father is a good man; his only mistake was getting involved with John. She wishes she had a gun so she could kill him. Bo advises her not to say things like that. He flashes back to Philip making similar threats to Paul. Morgan remembers all of the people who used to offer things to her father so they could smuggle things in. But there was only one person who he told her to stay away from: Philip. Hope probes for details. Morgan just wants to give her statement and go. She calls Chelsea to set up a ride and then sits outside to write her statement. In the office, Hope asks her husband why this case is eating him up. She threatens to go to Abe if he doesn't tell her. If he can't stay objective, he's no use, she says. He won't tell her any more and walks out.
Bo sneaks into Philip's room. "Sorry I didn't believe you... sorry I was so rough on you," he says. He thought he might have done something, but he stood up and took a bullet. He tells his brother to hang in while he takes care of this. Morgan walks in. She offers to leave. Bo asks her to stay and leaves her alone with his brother. "You saved my life," she says. Tearfully, she thanks him and hopes he can find a way to show him how much he means to her. "You saved my life and I love you for that," she says.
"Sounds like you're going to be needing a divorce lawyer," EJ comments back at the mansion. John is sure she's better off without him. EJ tells him that it's best to be true to himself; it doesn't pay to be someone you're not. "It's not that easy," John says, reminding him that he still has to prove his loyalty and can't just leap from the Bradys to the DiMeras. EJ wants his old life back, even if he has to work for John to get it. The door bell rings and Judge Fitzpatrick comes in to thank John for his donation. EJ tells her he wants to talk about Ava. He explains that he would like the trial kept in the U.S. She tells them that she is their "close friend". After she leaves, EJ is elated. John is skeptical that it will help much. EJ reminds him that John's defense all depends on Paul and he is gone. Rolf interrupts to announce that Morgan is there. "I want to know what you did with my father!" she demands as she bursts in. She accuses John of killing her father and threatens to kill him. Edward Vitali, Ava's cousin, arrives and Morgan continues to rant, refusing to leave. John gives his word that he didn't harm her father. She continues to rant until Philip arrives. He tries to pull her away. She reaches into her bag. Edward assumes she's reaching for a gun and pulls his. As he fires, Philip leaps in front of her.
