Kate holds Chelsea's hand while Chelsea apologizes to her about not listening to her advice not to drink. Kate jokes that Chelsea got her stubbornness from her and they agree it doesn't help. Kate thinks Chelsea can use this time to think hard about what she's about to do. She worries that Chelsea could die and asks if she is doing this for Bo's approval. Chelsea says it's not what it's about. Kate calls her brave and goes off to get her some water. When she leaves, Chelsea rips out her IV. A nurse comes in to find her bed empty!
Marlena finds John hanging out alone, in the hospital waiting room. She asks why he's hiding out. He retorts, "Not really part of the in crowd?" He admits he's concerned for Bo as a fellow human being but she thinks there is more to it. He tells her not to push it but she grins and tells him she'll push it so hard one day that the real John will show through.
Lexi comes out of Bo's room to talk to Roman and asks that he round up the troops and give them some space. Dr. Jonas needs time to think. The family reluctantly agrees to leave the area and Lexi thanks Roman and promises to keep him posted. Nearby, Steph reassures Max that they'll call if there is news. She refuses to leave him. Kate comes across them and tells them they've found a donor - Chelsea. Their happiness turns to worry when they find out about Chelsea's drunken binge and how Chelsea's trying to get the alcohol out of her system before they perform surgery. Stephanie feels bad.
Dr. Jonas and Kayla escort Hope out of Bo's room and Dr. Jonas confesses he has nothing. He's frustrated and doesn't want Hope and Kayla to get a journal that she showed him earlier and each doctor runs off. Outside the room, Hope tells Caroline and Victor that the doctors need a little space. Hugs ensue. Nearby, Philip comforts Roman and he says though he and Bo are half brothers, it never felt that way. He thinks it was because they were brought up differently but wants them to be more of a family and says luckily, he and Shawn have gotten over their issues. He asks what Roman thinks of the new John. "Not a whole hell of a lot," he admits. Neither does Philip. Nearby, Marlena and Belle and Shawn discuss John and how he sometimes acts like the old John. John comes upon them and they ask if he has any ideas. John seductively tells them, sure but it's nothing that he can say in front of Isabella! Belle is disgusted and asks him to act more like her father, while Marlena rolls her eyes and wonders why he continues to try to shock her.
Kate, Stephanie and Max arrive at Chelsea's bed to find it empty. The nurse has no idea where she has gone. An angry Kate stomps off and finds Roman to explain what happened.

Hope, Victor and Caroline are upset with the news but agree to stay there while the others search. Hope goes to check on Bo. Marlena thanks John for helping her look for Chelsea. She's happy he's there and finds it a comfort. "Just having you nearby lifts my spirits," she says. "We were that good, huh?" John asks. She tells him they were even better and that's why this is so hard on her to see him do things like declare war on the Kiriakis family. He says he'll do what it takes to gain control. Maybe he's overcompensating; he says but asks her not to judge. Philip comes upon them and says they've not found Chelsea yet. Kate comes to Philip and asks after his health. Philip says his new leg has taken some getting used to but he's okay with it. Kate thinks he's so matter of fact about it all and is proud of him for it.
In the lab, Lexi and Dr. Jonas keep searching for help while Kayla brings Dr. Jonas the study from the journal she read, hoping it'll help. Lexi finds something!
Chelsea arrives in Bo's room. She lies down beside him, crying and apologetic. She has been thinking of the day she found out he and Billie were her parents and wishes she'd have acted differently. She apologizes for being a brat and explains her feelings when she found out the truth. She cries as she tells him the Bensons were great but she has had the most amazing parents and wouldn't trade it for anything. She says he's been there for her even when she didn't deserve it, so this is her turn to do the same for him. Hope finds Chelsea and bumps into Dr. Jonas. They watch Chelsea and Bo and Hope admits no matter how much Chelsea misbehaves, you can always tell she loves her daddy! Dr. Jonas thinks that's obvious and smiles. He holds a syringe up and asks if she believes in fate. They go inside and tell Chelsea the family is looking for her. She apologizes and Dr. Jonas says they think they can buy some time. Lexi and Kayla take Chelsea off for another blood screening while the doctor administers the drug to Bo. Nearby, Lexi takes blood from Chelsea and they hope that there is still time. Lexi tells Steve what's going on and Victor finds Steve and congratulates him on Kayla's pregnancy. They agree second chances are important and they hope Bo gets one, too.
Bo wakes up and finds Kayla staring at him. He tells her she's freaking him out and asks for a drink. She refuses him. It's too close to surgery. They reminisce about his first motorcycle and how Caroline blamed her for his interest because her cool, tattooed, ex-boyfriend, Roy, had a motorbike and Caroline felt Bo got the idea from him. Hope comes in and snuggles close to Bo. They kiss and Dr. Jonas says heart and respiratory is hanging on but glucose is not great. Hope takes Dr. Jonas into the hall and asks how Chelsea is. Hope is sure she'd never let her father down.
Max and Steph visit Chelsea and she apologizes for worrying them. She just wanted to see her dad. She explains what's happening and hopes they've got time. Max knows she didn't do this on purpose but she feels guilty and afraid, anyway. Stephanie suggests prayer to help them cope and they join hands and pray to God. A nurse comes for Chelsea and tells her it's time to get her to surgery! Lexi runs into Bo's room to let them know Chelsea's blood is clear. They prepare for surgery!
