After getting fired from her waitress job, Hattie took Bart's suggestion (via Rolf) and phoned Dr. Steiner (Rolf) about having plastic surgery to make her look like Marlena's double.

John refused when Marlena said she wanted Brady out of their house. Marlena was furious when John admitted DNA tests show he fathered Hope's baby (at the time she was Princess Gina). Bo told Abe he is going to Ireland to get information on Stefano. Bo insisted to Hope he blames Stefano, not her, for Baby John's medical problems.

In Salem, Lexie told a shocked Hope that Baby John has a hole in his heart and needs surgery. Brady freed Belle's foot from the train track just as a train raced by, but she fell and hit her head. Marlena and John saw Brady carrying Belle along the road and drove them to the hospital. Because Marlena blamed Brady for Belle's skull fracture, he refused to reveal what happened.

11/6/00-11/10/00: John went into mercenary mode and beat up everyone in sight when Roman tried to arrest Brady for threatening Marlena with the sword.

After arguing with John again, Marlena turned to Roman, who admitted he will always love her. Nicole was surprised when Victor said Brady is his grandson. Hope finally got Bo on the phone and told him about Little Johnny's condition, but was upset that Bo nixed leaving Ireland until he gets the goods on Stefano.

The cops later trapped Brady in the motel where John left him. Belle came out of her coma, but may not be able to clear Brady since she does not remember her accident. After escaping Declan and Walter, Bo, Jennifer, and Abby sailed into the night on a boat owned by Jennifer's friend, Annie.

Kate began knocking on the door as Nicole was trying to seduce Victor again. Sami lied to Moroni, saying that she has no romantic interest in Brandon, she just wants her son back. Abe was surprised when John forgave him for shooting Brady. Blaming Marlena for Brady's condition, John told her to stay away from the boy. Stefano panicked when Lexie mentioned Marlo, who was J.T.'s (Baby Johnny) real mother. After Bo told Hope about Gina's wedding, Hope told Bo she knows he is not J.T.'s father.

Abe warned Sami to beware of Brandon, but she refused because she likes him. Fay was livid when she overheard Brandon tell Benny that when they are through with Abe, he'll be a dead man.

Everyone was stunned when Shawn discovered a body frozen in the ice of the canal.

Seeing the body made Lexie recall seeing Marlo lying dead at Stefano's mansion. Fearing she could lose Isaac if the body turned out to be Marlo's, Lexie panicked when Abe said the police will learn the identity of the dead person. Brandon fumed when Sami said Angela gave Roberto's confession tape to Moroni. After a mild heart attack, Moroni insisted Angela (who took back the tape) return to Italy with him where he will have an angioplasty. Brandon was upset Sami rejected his marriage proposal.

Rolf brought Hattie to see Stefano, who actually thought he was talking to Marlena when they met. Brady was able to stand using crutches, but was angry to see Marlena had been watching his struggle.

Stefano insisted to Lexie that she can tie the case up in court for years if Isaac's father turns up.

Knowing that a DNA match between Glen and Isaac was impossible because he is Hope's son, Stefano told Lexie and Abe that Glen can't take Isaac without a DNA test being done.

Kate urged Greta to pursue Austin, and Greta vowed Sami will never have Austin. Sami realized Austin was sorry after they made love again, and then was upset that he said he is staying on at Titan.

Philip told Kate that he loves her even though she is destitute and working in a diner.

It was revealed that Colin is Grandpa Shawn's nephew. Jennifer was in no hurry to get home to Jack after Abby called her at Hope's. Greta noted Jack is a good father to Abby. Stefano played dumb while Lexie figured out that Isaac and J.T. had been switched at birth, and then panicked that she will lose Isaac once Hope learns he is really her baby. Bart told Rolf that Stefano doesn't want anyone killed because of his plot to see that Lexie keeps Isaac. Hope lied to Bo about his suspicion that John is J.T.'s father is wrong. Bo got upset when John later asked about J.T., and John was upset Marlena nixed telling Bo the truth. Brandon told Fay he will kill his father, Paul, if he gets out of jail and comes near her. Victor said he will protect Nicole from Paul.
5/14/01-5/18/01: Abe slammed the door on Glen, who said he is the only father Isaac will ever know. On Stefano's orders, Rolf and Bart set bombs in various places in Salem to cover for the bomb set to destroy the lab - and Isaac's DNA sample - so that Glen will never know he is J.T.'s father - and thus Lexie will not lose Isaac. One of Rolf's bombs went off outside the Tuscany restaurant while half the town was inside eating. Another bomb blew out a bridge just as Jennifer approached it on her way home. Nancy was rushed to the hospital after arguing with Chloe, and then had an apparent heart attack. John urged Bo to forget about finding out who fathered J.T. Marlena was upset that Hope wants to tell Bo that John is J.T.'s father (really Isaac's dad). At the diner, Sami humiliated Kate, who later had severe abdominal cramps.

Hope, Bo (and John, who thinks he fathered J.T.) were devastated over the fact that J.T. might be dead. Barb and Glen, who survived the bombing at the DNA lab and were by the river, saw the baby's car seat and Glen pulled it to shore. Glen thought J.T. was Isaac because he was in Isaac's car seat. Chloe, who was by the river with Philip, saw someone (Glen) pull something (J.T.) from the water. Maggie suspected Stefano was behind the bombings even though he saved her from a car bomb.

John kept mum that he is JT's father (he thinks) when Bo suggested Stefano caused the bombings in Salem to cover so he could kidnap JT. When Hope visited Lexie in the hospital, she was unable to tell Hope that Isaac is Hope's child, not JT. Chloe went to the cops when she realized she had seen Glen rescue JT from the river, but Glen and Barb escaped from the police with the baby.

Tek told Philip his mission for the night was to attend Victor's party and keep an eye out for Maya, an art/antiques dealer. Before Belle interfered, Philip heard Victor warn Maya to beware of Tony. Philip and Belle later heard Tony and Maya talking about their illegal diamond trading business. Tony told Rex not to tell anyone he invented a laser that can create diamonds. Sami, who is recuperating from her fall through the glass doors, panicked when she was unable to speak. Rex told a stunned Cassie that Roman is their father. It was learned Victor engineered Chloe's departure from Salem to keep her and Brady apart.
6/23/03-6/27/03: Rex helped Cassie, who was (wrongly) arrested for prostitution. Rex assured Cassie it's true: Tony and Marlena are not their parents, but Roman is their father. Cassie later blurted out "my father" when she saw Roman, but he thought she meant Tony. Rex vowed to find his and Cassie's birth mother. Later, Cassie turned to Lucas after her arrest, but was hurt when he refused to sleep with her. Roman is suspicious of Rex and Cassie's behavior. John was surprised when Cassie said Marlena isn't her mother. Nicole pretended she was hit by a car to get the cops transporting Larry from the prison to get out of their car. Larry's henchman, Russell, got him out of the police car, then blew it up after putting Rolf's body inside. Rex agreed to let Tony use his laser to create diamonds. After getting a report from Philip, John told Tony he knows about his association with Maya. Belle learned John is a spy.

6/30/03-7/4/03: Rex learned Kate is his, and Cassie's, biological mother. Realizing that Lucas is Cassie's brother, Rex and Mimi rushed to stop Cassie and Lucas from making love. When Rex walked in, Tony kept mum about the contents of a vial of goop he was holding. John told Philip test results on the mysterious goop Philip found on a cargo ship aren't in yet. John stowed away on Tony's yacht after learning Tony sailed off in the same direction as the cargo ship (South America). While spying on Tony, John heard him praise Rex for his laser that makes diamonds from coal. Brady learned Larry is "dead." Brady tailed Nicole, who bought a gun for Larry. Nicole covered in front of Brady, then gave Larry the gun. Sami, who was released from the hospital, was upset Lucas didn't show for dinner because he was with Cassie.
7/7/03-7/11/03: Larry mistakenly shot at Brady when he went to the swimming pool, where Nicole had tried to lure Victor so Larry could kill him. Victor came up as Nicole pulled Brady from the pool. Brady said he fell into the pool and hit his head after hearing the gunshot. Victor, who had a gun, went after the shoot (but Larry had split). Larry refused when Nicole wanted to call off the hit on Victor. Rex, who told Cassie that Kate is their biological mother and Lucas their half-brother, was relieved Cassie said she hadn't made love with Lucas. Cassie and Rex vowed never to reveal Roman and Kate are their parents since they want to be DiMeras. Tony and John were rescued after the bomb planted by Maya's henchman Sal destroyed Tony's yacht. As Maya and Sal toasted John and Tony's demise, they were heading home. After quarreling, Lucas comforted Sami, who had a reaction to her medication.
7/14/03-7/18/03: Nicole covered her anxiety with Brady after Larry insisted on carrying out the hit on Victor. Larry forced Nicole to lure Victor to the parking lot at the Blue Note so he could kill him. At the last minute, Nicole screamed "No!" and Brady tackled Victor when he spotted Larry, who fired off a shot. Victor realized the hit was meant for him as Brady and Nicole chased after Larry, who crashed his car into a guardrail and went into a ravine. After catching Philip in a clinch with Maya, John said he isn't sure Philip is ISA agent material. John told Marlena that he and Tony called off their feud. Bo and Hope decided to check into the strange goop Maya and Tony were after. Tony vowed revenge against Maya. Mimi urged Rex to see a doctor when he had severe headaches and sudden fits of temper. Cassie covered after blurting out to Philip that Marlena isn't her mother. Tony plotted against Sami.
7/21/03-7/25/03: Lucas blasted Sami for going out with Tony, who gave her diamond earrings and a pendant. Lucas kept mum to Sami he has feelings for her. Maya, who is in prison for trying to kill Tony, refused to reveal the location of the substance (the goop) he wants. Maya ordered Sal to kill Tony before he kills her. At the hospital, Sami saw Sal about to kill Tony, who was stabbed in the chest when he turned at her warning yell. Sami felt guilty her warning may cost Tony his life, but Roman and Lucas were thrilled Sami has regained her voice. Nicole panicked when Larry regained consciousness briefly after the car crash and pointed to her when Abe asked who else was involved in the hit on Victor. Nicole was relieved when Larry died. Mimi almost told Roman and Kate they are Rex and Cassie's biological parents. Rex realized he needs Kate and Roman's medical history to find a cause for his severe headaches.
7/28/03-8/1/03: Lucas and Sami visited Tony, who survived surgery. After asking Lucas to take care of Sami, Tony went into a coma from a reaction to anesthesia. Marlena finally believed John and Tony had buried the hatchet when she heard John beg Tony to live. Sami told Cassie and Rex she knows Roman (not Tony) is their father, and she is going to make sure that they don't take advantage of Tony. Cassie got a sample of Philip's hair and Mimi stole a straw Lucas used so that Rex can perform a DNA test to see if Philip and Lucas are Rex and Cassie's siblings. Rex is determined to have his rightful place in the DiMera family, even if it means removing Lucas. Bo searched for Hope, who disappeared after locating the mysterious goop that Tony and Maya were after. Maya told Bo that she got the goop from a Native American. Brady rescued Nicole when a bartender recognized her from her porn film past. Philip wants Belle for himself.

8/4/03-8/8/03: After Brady laid into Victor for treating Nicole badly, Victor decided to destroy the evidence he Is blackmailing her with. Before he could act, Victor had an apparent heart attack. Nicole and Brady are attracted to each other. Upset the ISA reassigned him back to the Marine base, Philip vowed to prove he would make a good agent by bringing down Rex. On the Indian reservation, a tribal leader, Cree, told Bo and Hope he has to sell the land the goop is on to raise money for research to cure a disease that is wiping out his people. Bo and Hope blew up the cave where the goop was after learning it was a liquid dynamite, which in the wrong hands could mean mass destruction. Later, Bo and Hope promised to help Cree raise the money for research. After Rex learned Bo and Hope destroyed the goop, they were found on the floor bleeding after the lights went out at the fund-raiser for Cree's people.
8/11/03-8/15/03: Bo and Hope were rushed to the hospital after they were found nearly bludgeoned to death. Bo began to recover from his head injuries, while Hope underwent surgery to remove blood clots from her brain. When Hope woke up, Bo vowed to find their attacker. Cassie hid the pipe used on Bo and Hope when she thought Rex was their attacker, but Philip pointed it out to the police. Rex had flashbacks indicating he may have been involved in the attack. Roman, who thinks Tony was behind the attack, warned an "unconscious" Tony he had better not be faking it. After several anonymous calls about Colin Murphy's murder, Abe decided to reopen the case. During his mild heart attack, Victor kicked the file containing evidence that Nicole killed Colin under the couch, where Brady later found it. Nicole got the file, but Victor, who recovered, took it from her. Cassie told Philip she thinks of him as a brother (he is).
8/18/03-8/22/03: Nicole didn't answer when Brady asked why she stays married to Victor. After Abe asked questions about Colin's murder, Victor told Nicole he might destroy the evidence proving she killed Colin if she remains his loyal wife. Nicole, who was planning to secretly skip town, agreed. Brady got to the messenger delivering Nicole's plane ticket before she did. In Rex's room, Belle, Shawn and Philip found evidence connecting him to the attack on Bo and Hope. Rex didn't seem to know what Cassie was talking about when she said she would keep mum that she wiped blood off the pipe used to beat Bo and Hope, and wouldn't mention the red stain on Rex's shirt that night. Lucas told Tony, who came out of his coma, that the deal for the goop was botched, and that John thinks Tony was behind the near death of Bo and Hope. Tony secretly plotted against Sami, who was devastated to get annulment papers from Brandon.
8/25/03-8/29/03: After receiving her one-way plane ticket, Nicole boarded a plane with plans to get out of Victor's life for good, but he stopped her. Nicole refused to tell Brady what in her past Victor is using to prevent her from leaving him. Nicole decided she has to kill Victor. Hope got upset when Bo wanted to find their attacker without her help because he didn't want her to get hurt. Bo and Hope were unaware someone was spying on them. Lucas insisted to Shawn that Tony had nothing to do with Hope and Bo's beating. Abe spoke briefly to an informant who had information on Tony, but when Abe and Jack went to meet the man a second time they found him dead. Abe accused Tony of killing the informant, but didn't have evidence to charge him with the murder. Kate was upset John gave Sami a job, and both are unaware Sami is planning to use the job as a way to get even with them.

9/1/03-9/5/03: Belle told Hope that Shawn suspects Rex was responsible for the attack on her and Bo, while Shawn told Bo of his suspicion. Her first day at Basic Black, Sami fumed to learn Kate is her boss. While John and Marlena hope Sami's job at Basic Black will be a new start for her, Sami plotted to use the job to destroy Kate and John's relationship. Tony convinced Sami he's the only one she can trust, since her family is out to get her. Abe vowed to prove to Lexie that Tony is just as evil as Stefano was. After Stefano's ashes fell from the mantle, Tony received a call that seemed to have been from Stefano. Tony wants Abe out of Lexie's life - for good. Jennifer worried about Jack, who is determined to get the goods on the DiMera family. Alice worried about her family after she saw the "spirit" of her deceased husband, Tom. Mimi was stunned to learn someone emptied her bank account.
9/8/03-9/12/03: On the phone with Stefano, Tony learned of Stefano's sinister plan for the citizens of Salem. Tony told Stefano that Theo's (Lexie and Abe's baby) christening is coming up. Cassie slipped (but covered) after saying she and Rex are not Tony's children when he said they are the DiMera dynasty's future. Abe saw Stefano's name on a wall after a mystery person warned "he's back." Lexie didn't believe it when Abe said Stefano could be alive. Using a scanner, Jack listened in when a mystery person gave Abe a tip about Colin's murder. Since Nicole killed Colin, she decided Abe has to die before he solves the murder. A mystery person pointed a gun at Jack after Victor learned Jack had "bugged" his home. Victor heard Nicole say she has to kill him if she's ever going to be free. Sami wants Roman and Marlena reunited. Mimi found out her mother, Bonnie, stole her college money and gambled it away.

9/15/03-9/19/03: An unseen shooter fired a shot at Jack after he broke into Victor's mansion and planted a "bug" in the phone. Jack warned Abe that his life is in danger since he is also investigating Colin's murder. Abe told Jack, Brady, Victor and Nicole he is close to arresting Colin's killer. Sami fumed when Abe refused to help her get Brandon back. Tony and Rex had guns, Sami stole a gun from a security guard, and Victor and Nicole each had a gun, Alice and Celeste both predicted there would be a death immediately following baby Theo's christening. Kate bought a gun after Abe said Roman should know about her call girl past. Lucas, who has a gun, said he would handle things for Kate. Gunshots were heard as Jack and Abe left their respective homes. Rex told Mimi he was born to carry on Stefano's legacy. While on the phone with Stefano, Tony was upset he refused to reveal his plans for Cassie and Rex.

9/22/03-9/26/03: With his dying breath, Abe called Lexie on her cell phone, but lost consciousness before he could talk. John found Abe and tried to revive him while Roman went to the church to tell Lexie. Bo and Hope arrived on the scene just before Abe was rushed to the hospital. Abe survived surgery, and after regaining consciousness, remembered meeting the shooter (someone he knew) outside his home. The seven suspects in Abe's shooting panicked when he was about to tell Roman the name of the person who shot him. After Abe's shooting, Sami returned the gun she stole from the security guard and Kate disposed of her gun - which was found by police. After hiding his gun, Tony said Abe had been taken care of. Nicole covered when Brady saw her toss her gun into the river. Kate begged Lucas (who had a gun) to quit working for Tony. Shawn accused Rex (who had another headache) of attacking Bo, Hope and Abe.

9/29/03-10/3/03: Just before Abe died, he pointed at Maggie and said her name. Mickey and Maggie worried she could be the next target of the person who killed Abe because she may know something about the killer. John, Bo and Roman wanted to see the files Abe kept at home, but when Lexie got home she saw that someone had burned Abe's computer and the files. A worried Lexie took Theo and moved into the DiMera mansion. Tek told John and Roman a profile he did of the shooter indicates he/she is a serial killer. John used himself as bait to draw the killer out of hiding. Bo pointed out that Rex, Tony, Kate, Lucas, Victor and Nicole all had motives to kill Abe. Rex plotted a response after Mimi left him a message saying she was breaking up with him. Rex didn't remember where he was at the time of Abe's shooting. Jack promised Jennifer he would drop his investigation of Colin's murder and Abe's death.

Shawn fought with Rex when he thought Rex was attacking Mimi, but then saw Rex had killed a snake that almost bit her. Sami lured Kate to the police station after learning that Abe's gardener, Ed Jennings, heard Abe arguing with a woman before he was shot. Ed recognized Kate's voice as she argued with Sami. The security guard, whose gun had been stolen, recognized Sami while the police at the station were questioning him. Sami was upset that John, Marlena, Lucas, and everyone else thinks she killed Abe. Marlena hypnotized Maggie, who remembered seeing Abe meet with someone the day he was killed. Kate later blurted out that Maggie had info on the identity of Abe's killer. Maggie, Jack, and John are unwitting targets of the serial killer.
10/13/03-10/17/03: Maggie found Jack's body after the serial killer smashed his head with a brick. Jennifer had Jack's life-support system shut off after Lexie said he was brain dead. Abby was angry Jennifer gave the order to let Jack die, but was with him and Jennifer to the end. Jennifer followed Jack's wishes and released his organs for donation. At the site of Jack's beating, Hope and Bo realized he was attacked in the same manner they were. The serial killer was waiting when Hope took the brick used to kill Jack to the police evidence room. After Alice saw Tom's ghost, she saw a photo of Hope begin to fade. Bo, Roman, and John rounded up the seven suspects in Abe's murder for DNA tests. Rex told Tony that Jack had to die, then blamed his headaches for saying that. Maggie is upset she hasn't been able to remember the identity of the killer. Because of the DiMera money, Bonnie urged Mimi to get pregnant by Rex.
10/20/03-10/24/03: Hope fought off the serial killer, who escaped, taking the brick used to kill Jack with him/her. Marlena hypnotized Maggie again to see if she could remember Abe's killer, but Maggie only saw Tom Horton's ghost. It was too much for Maggie (who was still hypnotized) when Hope suggested she draw the killer's face. After a nightmare, Maggie awoke to the feeling she was being watched by evil. Everyone was stunned Jennifer had Jack's body brought to their home, as per his request. Jack's spirit appeared to Jennifer (who slept next to his coffin), but he was pulled away by cosmic forces. Alice tried to comfort Abby, who is angry Jennifer took Jack off life-support. Rex passed a lie detector test after insisting he wasn't Hope's attacker. John realized Rex and Cassie may not be Tony and Marlena's children after learning Rex failed a lie detector question about his parents.
10/27/03-10/31/03: Maggie fainted from fright after someone locked her inside Marlena's office. Maggie insisted the evil eyes of the serial killer were in the room with her. Later, Maggie thought she saw Jack reaching out to her from the spirit world. Maggie believes she will be the killer's next victim. Philip told Bo and Hope he thinks Rex is the serial killer, because he, Mimi, and Cassie followed Rex to all the crime scenes. Rex told Cassie he doesn't remember where he was (the night he was followed). The serial killer wore a Halloween mask like the one Rex bought. John told Marlena that she might not be Rex and Cassie's biological mother. Jennifer said goodbye to Jack's spirit - after he told her there would be another murder. Belle said goodbye to Shawn, because to protect her, John arranged for her to work with a fashion designer in Italy. Kate stunned Roman by revealing her call girl past.
11/3/03-11/7/03: On Halloween night, an unwitting Maggie let the serial killer into her home when she recognized him/her. The killer hid when Officer Kent checked on Maggie. The killer bludgeoned Maggie with a liquor bottle after she recognized his or her eyes as those of the person who had killed Abe. The killer then attacked Mickey, who, woken from his sleep, went downstairs to find a bloody Maggie slumped on the kitchen floor. Bo and Hope arrived after watching a live-feed e-mail transmission of Maggie's attack, which the killer taped with a camcorder and sent to Bo's computer by hacking into it. Maggie, who regained consciousness, had a seizure when she saw the killer standing outside the kitchen door after Bo and Hope's arrival. After Celeste read Bonnie's tarot cards (the deck came up all death cards), the duo unwittingly came face-to-face with the serial killer. Rex, Kate, and Sami all had hooded sweatshirts and/or Halloween masks like those worn by the serial killer.

11/10/03-11/14/03: Maggie passed away with Mickey, Hope, Shawn, Jennifer and Alice at her bedside. Roman arrested Rex for Maggie's murder when blood on his sweatshirt proved to be Maggie's. Rex told Cassie that the serial killer had already the next victim and he/she will strike when Rex is in jail. Victor suggested Caroline's fingerprints were planted on the liquor bottle used to bludgeon Maggie as a signal that Caroline would be the serial killer's next victim. At Abe, Jack and Maggie's joint funeral, Bo received a message on his PDA from the killer stating Caroline is the next target and she had only one hour to live. Also during the funeral, a fourth casket mysteriously appeared during a blackout (caused by an eclipse). Sami threatened to keep Will away from Lucas, who is drinking again.
11/17/03-11/21/03: After the time the serial killer said Caroline would die had passed, Bo went into the hospital chapel to get Caroline. When Bo touched Caroline, who was on her knees in a praying position, she fell to the floor and he realized she was dead. Bo's hope he could trace the killer via the message he or she left on Bo's PDA about Caroline's impending death were dashed when the trace was impossible. At Caroline's wake, Celeste was able to communicate with Caroline, who said the killer was going to strike again. Marlena collapsed right after Roman got a message from the killer stating someone else would die. Brady rescued Nicole when Victor nearly strangled her for mocking his grief over Caroline's death. John heard Sami make a threat on Caroline's life just before Caroline died, and John quizzed Sami. Jan Spears returned to Salem to stalk an unsuspecting Shawn.
11/24/03-11/28/03: When Bo, Hope, and Roman vowed to catch the serial killer, Rex warned them that whoever is close to solving the case would die. At Caroline's wake, Sami shocked everyone by accusing Rex of being willing to kill to keep secret the fact that Roman is Rex and Cassie's father. Later, Cassie confessed that Kate is her and Rex's mother. While Roman and Kate were surprised by the news, Marlena comforted Tony, who was upset at learning he isn't the twins' father. Sami fumed when Kate and Roman reconciled after learning they are the twins' parents, then realized that if Kate was made out to be the serial killer, Kate and Roman could never be together. Cassie told Rex she knows the killer's identity, and that he/she is trying to frame Rex. When Cassie was called by the serial killer, she told him/her she is going to the police. Caroline's ghost told Celeste that John will kill Marlena.
12/1/03-12/5/03: Everyone was stunned to learn Cassie was the serial killer's latest victim. While holding Cassie's body, Rex accused Kate, who was holding a bloody knife, of killing her own daughter. Roman had to arrest Kate, who couldn't remember picking up the knife that proved to be the murder weapon. Tony, who was devastated by Cassie's death, told Stefano on the phone that Cassie was dead, then said "it wasn't supposed to happen this way." Sami forced Celeste to tell Marlena, John, and Roman that Caroline's ghost told her John would kill Marlena. John said he'd move out after realizing Marlena fears him. Abe's ghost also claimed John would kill Marlena during a seance Celeste conducted for Lexie, Jennifer, Roman, and Sami. Jan, who continued stalking an unwitting Shawn, recalled vowing to get back to Salem over her mother's dead body if necessary. Brady told Victor not to bring Chloe back to Salem.
12/8/03-12/12/03: SamI vowed to get rid of Victor before the new year after he threatened to reveal how she lied and said Lucas abused Will in order to get custody of the boy. Lucas and Sami argued over her theory that both Kate and John are serial killers. When Marlena and Roman rejected Sami's suggestion they go into hiding, she vowed to get Marlena away from John even if she has to kill him. After breaking into Kate's hotel room to plant evidence that she is the serial killer, Sami found herself face-to-face with the masked killer. Roman got Kate released on bail so she could attend Caroline's funeral. After Caroline's funeral, Rex told Roman, Kate, John, Marlena, Sami and Lucas that the serial killer's next victim would be Roman. Bo and Hope got the same message on his PDA. While Shawn talked to Belle on the phone, Jan vowed Belle would die if she returns to Salem. Brady told Victor and Nicole that Chloe is coming home.
12/15/03-12/19/03: While attempting to frame Kate, Sami came face-to-face with the axe- and knife- wielding serial killer. When Kale and Roman arrived, Roman held the "killer" at gunpoint. After unmasking the "killer," Kate, Sami and Roman were stunned it was Lucas, who said he was trying to scare Sami, Roman saw the serial killer at Bonnie's Christmas tree lot, but a rookie cop caused Roman to lose the killer. Later, Sami encountered the real serial killer, and thinking he/she was Lucas, verbally abused the person and then tried to defend herself. Roman saved Sami from death, but the serial killer escaped again, Mimi, Max and Bonnie were confronted by the serial killer. Shawn, Rex and Roman ran to the rescue after getting a distress call from Mimi and Bonnie. After stealing a key to the loft, Jan plotted to get revenge against a returned Belle as soon as she was alone, Victor offered to fly Chloe to Salem for Christmas.
12/22/03-12/26/03: Rex gave chase after Bonnie and Mimi escaped from the serial killer, but the killer escaped when Roman distracted Rex. Roman, who had shot at the killer, later found blood at the site. Hoping to stop the killer, Rex decoded a message the killer sent to Roman's PDA, then sent a message back. Tony's PDA started to ring just as Rex sent his message to the killer. Rex and Mimi scattered Cassie's ashes on the hilltop where he and Cassie were originally discovered. John and Marlena discovered their love is stronger than ever. Mimi's arrival prevented Jan from killing Belle. Sami and Lucas both denied they still have feelings for each other. On Kate and Roman's wedding day, Sami vowed they would not marry. Marlena worried Kate will break Roman's heart. Jennifer told her family that she is pregnant. Chloe and Brady were reunited, but Nicole is determined to come between them.
12/29/03-1/2/04: Tony was arrested and charged with being the serial killer after Rex found, on Tony's PDA, the threatening messages the killer had been sending. Tony insisted he was innocent, and warned the real killer was still out there. Marlena refused to let Bo tell Roman, who had just tied the knot with Kate, that Tony had been released on bail. Bo and Hope worried Tony was lurking around Tuscany Restaurant (where Roman and Kate were married) waiting to kill Roman. Sami told Roman he is dead to her now that he's married to Kate. As in Celeste's premonition, the wedding cake oozed blood once Kate and Roman cut into it at the reception. After telling Nicole he would soon have evidence to arrest her for Colin's murder, Roman went to the Tuscany kitchen to meet his informant and came face to face with the serial killer. Roman learned the killer's identity moments before the killer slashed him.

1/5/04-1/9/04: John, Bo, & Hope caught a hooded trespasser, pulled off his hood and found the man was Tony. Roman's body was found in the kitchen at Tuscany after everyone heard Kate screaming and saw her covered with blood. After Tony's re-arrest, Celeste was visited by Roman and Maggie's spirits, who told her the cops arrested the wrong man. Celeste realized she could be the next victim after the ghosts of Roman and Maggie told her Celeste already knows the killer's identity. Everyone was stunned when Mickey agreed to defend Tony. Victor believes Nicole killed Roman to get the information (which she burned) that proved she killed Colin. Shawn gave chase when he thought he saw Jan (he did), but she got away and he ended up "catching" Nicole. Nicole later told Jan she needs her help. Brady and Chloe made love. During a medical exam, Lexie had to tell Jennifer that something's not right with Jennifer's unborn baby.
1/12/04-1/16/04: Jennifer learned her unborn baby is in jeopardy. Lexie told Jennifer that if she doesn't abort the fetus, Jennifer and the baby could die. Abby was furious when she heard Jennifer talking to Alice about terminating the pregnancy. Victor told Tony he thinks the serial killer is a woman. Bo was angry with Mickey for defending Tony at his pre-trial hearing. Tek testified that Roman was killed with the knife used to cut the wedding cake, not Tony's samurai sword. After Marlena testified that Tony didn't kill Roman, the judge dropped the murder charge against Tony, who was set free. Nicole shot at Victor (but missed) when he threatened to tell Tony she is the serial killer. Belle and John escorted a disoriented Marlena to Roman's funeral. Belle, Shawn, John, and Marlena were stunned when Doug and Julie returned from a trip with a Bengal tiger. Celeste saw the eyes of a tiger then said someone else would soon die.
1/19/04-1/23/04: As Doug and Julie told how they rescued the tiger they brought with them to Salem, Marlena recalled a nightmare about being attacked by a tiger. Nicole fumed when she heard Victor tell Tony that she had killed Colin, and that Victor thinks Nicole is also the Salem Stalker. Brady heard Victor threaten Nicole's life. Celeste warned Tony he could end up dead after he put an ad in the newspaper announcing that the identity of the Salem Stalker would be revealed at the Horton Foundation Circus. Bo left for Europe after Billle Reed left a voice message for him stating that she knows the identity of the Stalker, but would only tell Bo. The Stalker watched as Hope said goodbye to Bo. An unwitting Bonnie almost ran into the Stalker. The Stalker drugged the tiger with a dart, causing the tiger to go into a rage. Then the Stalker opened the tiger's cage door just as Tony was about to reveal the Stalker's identity.
1/26/04-1/30/04: The tranquilizer gun jammed when John tried to shoot the tiger who attacked Tony then dragged his body away. Lexie and Celeste found Tony, who was hospitalized. Lexie was unable to save Tony after the Salem Stalker, who was revealed to be Marlena, put a lethal drug in his I.V. drip. Before he died, Tony grabbed Marlena's hand when she sat next to his bed, but no one realized he was trying to reveal she is the Salem Stalker. Marlena covered when John wondered why Tony had grabbed her. After Celeste had visions of the masked killer with long blonde hair, Tony's ghost told her that she knows who the Salem Stalker is. Lexie learned of the lethal injection after having an autopsy done on Tony. After Nicole told Brady and Victor she had nothing to do with Tony's death, Victor found her barrette in the hospital cubicle where Tony had been. Jan continued spying on Shawn and Belle.
2/2/04-2/6/04: After Celeste told Lexie that Tony's ghost told her she knows the Salem Stalker's identity, Celeste felt a chill when she locked eyes with Marlena. Celeste, who worried she would be the next victim, refused when Lexie wanted Marlena to hypnotize Celeste to get the name of the Stalker. Lexie later left Celeste alone with Marlena after telling John and Marlena that she is close to naming the Stalker (it's Marlena). Marlena, who relived the murders, told Roman's photo that marrying Kate was his "fatal" mistake. Marlena realized her decision to tell John she is the Stalker was a mistake. Marlena assured an unwitting Belle that she (Marlena) would not be a victim of the Stalker. Because Victor keeps accusing Nicole of being the Stalker, she handcuffed herself to Brady to have an alibi the next time the Stalker strikes. Bonnie was hurt when she overheard Mickey tell Julie he would no longer need Bonnie once he stops mourning Maggie.

2/9/04-2/13/04: A knife-wielding Marlena panicked when Celeste, who was hypnotized, saw the Salem Stalker (Marlena), but only remembered the killer's blue jacket. John burst into the room, unwittingly saving Celeste from being Marlena's next victim. Marlena realized a piece of fabric was missing from her blue jacket after John said Belle and Shawn found a piece of blue fabric caught on a nail at the circus. It looked like Marlena was about to stab Belle after she walked in on Marlena cutting up her blue jacket. Julie remembered Marlena wore a blue suit to the circus. Nicole kept herself handcuffed to Brady to prove she isn't the Salem Stalker. On Nicole's orders, Jan prepared to kill Victor. Victor made a new will, leaving nothing to Nicole. Jan saw Victor put the will in his safe. Jan also tried to kill Belle by dropping a sandbag on her, but failed. Julie wants Bonnie out of Mickey's life.
2/16/04-2/20/04: Nicole was horrified when Jan go trapped in the mansion after Jan electrocuted Victor in his bathtub. Nicole panicked when Victor tried to say her name after Brady briefly revived him. Nicole was relieved when Victor took his last breath. Nicole had an alibi for the time of Victor's death because the locksmith had been removing the handcuffs from her and Brady (while Jan, meanwhile, killed Victor). A returned Bo arrested Nicole after John told Bo and Hope that Victor had said previously that Nicole would be responsible if he died. Marlena collapsed when she was unable to kill Belle, who thought Marlena was just stressed out over the murders. Marlena fainted when John said Shawn thinks she is the Salem Stalker. Marlena faked understanding when Shawn said there were too many clues to ignore. Bo told Hope he never found Billie. While thinking about Jack, Jennifer his a man, Patrick, with her car. Patrick faked the extent of his in jury.
2/23/04-2/27/04: Shawn had to admit that Marlena, whom he (correctly) believes is the Salem Stalker serial killer, did not kill Victor because she was with Shawn and Belle at the time Victor died. Deciding that Shawn had to die, Marlena sneaked into his darkened bedroom and stabbed "him" repeatedly. After the stabbing, a bloodied Jan, the person who was in Shawn's bed, went to Nicole for help. Nicole got Jan drunk, then sewed up her stab wounds. Marlena was stunned to learn Shawn was alive. Doug told Julie he knows the identity of the serial killer, but refused to give Julie her name. Doug also spoke with Celeste, but didn't tell her the name of the serial killer. An unwitting Julie told Marlena that Doug knows who the serial killer is. As Nicole's alibi, Brady cleared her of being Victor's killer. Nicole, who is determined to get Victor's will before it's read, learned Jan knew the new combination to his safe.

3/1/04-3/5/04: After being stabbed by Marlena (the serial killer), Doug got away from her and wrote her name in his own blood, leaving the piece of paper next to Tom Horton's gravestone. Hope rushed to Doug after Celeste had a vision of him beside Tom's grave. Doug died in Hope's arms before he could identify Marlena as the serial killer. When John got a glimpse of the serial killer fleeing from the cemetery after Doug died, he said to himself "Doc," which is his nickname for Marlena. Belle came up with a plan to prove Shawn is wrong about Marlena being the serial killer. Hope quizzed Jennifer's boarder, Patrick, who told them he is Bonnie's son and Mimi's brother. Bonnie admitted to Mimi that Patrick is unaware she "lost" a lot of his money gambling. After the locksmith broke into Victor's safe, Bo (correctly) suspected Nicole got into the safe and stole Victor's will (and the proof that she killed Colin).
3/8/04-3/12/04: Doug's spirit told Celeste that the serial killer's next victim will be someone they all love. Looking into her crystals, Celeste saw the word "Hortons" in blood and an image of Tom's tombstone. Celeste later found Alice at Tom's grave. Alice came close to finding the note Doug wrote in blood (correctly) naming Marlena as the Salem Stalker. Shawn worried after Julie said she had told Marlena that Doug knew the serial killer's identity. Marlena acted hurt when John admitted he thought she might be the serial killer. Marlena then told Sami to get a grip when she tired to convince Marlena to kill John before he kills her (as predicted in another one of Celeste's visions). Nicole distracted Brady while Jan got Victor's will and the evidence against Nicole (that she killed Colin) out of the mansion. Jan kept the papers instead of burning them. Patrick learned Bonnie squandered all of his money.
3/15/04-3/19/04: Celeste warned that the Salem Stalker (Marlena) would murder another member of Alice's . family. In a confessional, Marlena (the Salem Stalker) told Father Jansen she might kill again. Father Jansen later asked for Marlena's help after telling her the killer confessed to him. Tek and Hope hypnotized John, who had convulsions after remembering he saw Marlena flee the scene of Doug's murder. Performing her job as a psychiatrist, Marlena tried to convince John that the reason why he thinks she is the killer is because of his past conditioning by Stefano. Marlena was prepared to kill Belle if Belle told Shawn that she lied when she said Marlena was with her when Doug was killed. Belle told Shawn about her lie, then saw he was asleep and didn't hear her. Tek began to (correctly) suspect Marlena is the killer. Jan told Nicole she would hand over Victor's papers after she gets Shawn back. Sami continued to worry that John will kill Marlena.
3/22/04-3/26/04: On the phone, Patrick told a mystery person he was moving on (leaving Salem), but would be in touch. Patrick called Lexie to have her tend to a pregnant Jennifer, who had abdominal pains while trying to convince Patrick not to leave town. Abby gave Patrick a doubloon she found, and he told her it was his, and it had belonged to pirates. After talking to Julie, Marlena (Salem Stalker) recalled seeing Doug bury something behind Tom's gravestone. After hacking into John's laptop computer, Marlena erased the surveillance photo of her in the cemetery (the night she killed Doug). Marlena went to kill Alice after learning she found Doug's note with Marlena's name on it. Marlena was about to kill Alice when she was scared away by the ghosts of Caroline, Roman, and Maggie. Alice called John and told him Marlena is the serial killer. Jan told Nicole she is going to kill Belle.
3/29/04-4/2/04: After taunting and then killing Alice, Marlena (the serial killer) set her murderous sights on eliminating Shawn. Bo and Hope found Alice, who opened her eyes briefly, but was unable to name her killer (Marlena) before she died. Alice and Tom were reunited in heaven. John confronted Marlena with evidence that forced her to admit she is the serial killer. John and Marlena struggled on the balcony after she grabbed his gun. From below, Sami watched John and Marlena's struggle, then saw Marlena go over the balcony railing. Lucas tried to rescue Sami, but Marlena landed on Sami after her fall was broken by an awning. Marlena regained consciousness in the hospital and claimed she is innocent. Nicole kept Jan from electrocuting Belle, who had fallen asleep in the bathtub. Nicole and Jan realized Marlena knows they killed Victor. Jennifer, who had abdominal pains, feared she will miscarry her baby.
4/5/04-4/9/04: Marlena regained consciousness and said John pushed her off the balcony to kill her, and also claimed John is the serial killer. John rushed off to get the real serial killer after Celeste got vibes that Marlena was innocent. John later dragged Marlena's look- alike, Hattie (he remembered her from the past) into the hospital and insisted that Hattie must be the serial killer. Kate urged Philip to comfort Belle, who was upset. Shawn dumped her when Belle admitted she lied and said that Marlena was with her when Doug was killed. Bonnie, who wants Mimi with Shawn, urged Philip to go after Belle. Nicole panicked when Brady said the police think she killed Victor. Philip almost recognized Jan, who was disguised as a doctor. Jennifer told Lexie that Patrick saved her unborn baby's life again. When Patrick learned Celeste had been Stefano's assistant, he lied and said he didn't have the doubloon when she asked to see it.
4/12/04-4/16/04: John, Bo, Hope, Lucas, Lexie, Belle, Philip, Shawn, and Sami were stunned that Hattie had proof she isn't the serial killer. Stefano's former henchman Bart backed up Hattie's story that she was in Europe during the time of some of the murders recovering from the last of her plastic surgery to make her look like Marlena (per Stefano's orders). Bart also proved Hattie had been in jail for shoplifting when Tony, Doug, and Alice were killed. Believing Marlena must be the serial killer, Bo arrested her and handcuffed her to the hospital bed. After Marlena said she was in Colorado with Eric when Abe was killed, Bo revealed Eric said she had left earlier - and thus could have been in Salem when Abe died. Marlena vowed to prove she is innocent. Jan reminded Nicole she still has Victor's will, the video, and the papers proving Nicole killed Colin. Patrick refused to harm Jennifer after a mystery man with whom he secretly met ordered him to "do what he came to Salem for."
4/19/04-4/23/04: To find out if Marlena is once again possessed by the devil, John, Bo, Hope, Shawn, and Belle watched as Father Jansen performed an exorcism on Marlena. After inviting the evil spirits into Marlena, Father Jansen told everyone that Marlena was not possessed because if she had been the evil spirits would have fought each other. Bo arrested Marlena for the Salem Stalker murders. In the holding cell, Marlena ended up bloodied and another inmate was found dead after Nicole bribed an old friend, Crystal, to kill Marlena. The others in the holding cell accused Marlena of murdering the inmate in cold blood. After learning Marlena wants to take truth serum, Nicole worried she would reveal Nicole and Jan killed Victor. Worried that she will go crazy like Marlena and hurt the people she loves, Belle told Shawn she wants nothing to do with him. Shawn realized Philip still loves Belle after seeing him comforting her.
4/26/04-4/30/04: While working on a school project, Abby found information on Patrick on the Internet showing he is a con man and a criminal. Patrick told Abby and Jennifer he had been a victim of identity theft, but later went onto the Internet, hacked into the Web site and deleted his photo and the information. Hope told Ivlarlena she is convinced Stefano is somehow behind the Salem Stalker murders. Lexie told Tek she thinks Stefano is behind Abe's murder. After the doctor gave Marlena truth serum she confessed to killing Abe, Jack, Maggie, Caroline, Cassie and Roman. After catching Lucas and Sami in bed together, Kate worried Sami will drive Lucas out of Salem just like she did to Austin. Julie warned she is watching Bonnie, who had her eye on the bearer bonds Jennifer inherited from Alice. Shawn broke up a fight between a disguised Jan and Nicole, who warned Jan to keep quiet about Victor's death.

5/3/04-5/7/04: Julie accused Bonnie, who had a purse full of money, of stealing Jennifer's bearer bonds, but Bonnie had proof she won the lottery. When Bonnie talked about marrying Mickey, Patrick said it would never happen. Patrick, who was also suspected of stealing the bearer bonds, was picked up by the police as he was leaving town. Patrick told Jennifer he didn't steal her bonds. Jennifer was hurt Patrick was leaving town without telling her. Shawn heard a mystery man talking about Jennifer and bearer bonds. Still under the truth serum, Marlena told Bo she didn't kill Victor, and neither did Nicole, but said she saw "them" (meaning Jan, who did kill Victor, and Nicole). Nicole arranged for her friend Crystal to kill Marlena after Marlena's return to jail. Crystal pretended to be Marlena's friend while other inmates tried to beat her up. After stealing keys and a gun from a guard, Crystal lured Marlena to the roof of the jail.
5/10/04-5/14/04: Crystal knocked Marlena out by hitting her with the guard's gun, left the gun beside Marlena, then jammed the door to the jail roof. A sharpshooter didn't hear Bo's order not to shoot, sho he shot Marlena as she ran toward John. After Lexie pronounced Marlena dead, John carried her body to a church and set up an impromptu wake for her. Celeste later had a visit from Marlena's ghost, who warned her that everyone in Salem would die. Crystal reported back to Nicole (Nicole had contracted with Crystal to kill Marlena) that she set things up so that the police would kill Marlena. Shawn helped Patrick get Jennifer's bearer bonds from the mystery man who stole them. Jennifer was stunned when a badly beaten Patrick was dumped on her front lawn. Jan disguised herself as Alice's old friend Mrs. B and said she needed Shawn's help. She lured Shawn to her country house, drugged his tea, then dragged him into her makeshift cage, chaining his legs and arms to the bed and locking him in.
5/17/04-5/21/04: While alone with Marlena's body and praying for Marlena's soul, Celeste was stunned when Marlena's corpse told her that evil has returned and that everyone in Salem is going to die. Before the embalming, Celeste and John didn't notice when Marlena's fingers moved. During the embalming, the mortician didn't notice when Marlena's eyes opened. At the funeral, John had the coffin opened when Sami, who threw herself on the coffin, said she heard Marlena begging to be let out. After John had the coffin opened, Sami freaked out when she saw Marlena was obviously dead. After everyone was gone, Marlena banged on the coffin and screamed that she was alive. Nicole forced Jan to bail Crystal out of jail because she arranged Marlena's death. Shawn realized Jan had kidnapped him. Jan fumed when she realized Shawn tried to escape while she was away. Dressed as Mrs. B, Nicole nearly freed Shawn while fantasizing he was Brady.
5/24/04-5/28/04: A stunned Marlena woke up in Alice's "living room." Marlena was shocked to see Roman, who said he carried her from "Salem Place" to Alice's. Roman made Marlena see she didn't kill anyone after telling her they were on a tropical island that has been transformed into a replica of Salem. Roman told Marlena that Doug, who is in horrible shape, was nearly electrocuted when he got too close to the security perimeter. Marlena and Roman talked about the fact Stefano could be behind their fate, but he's dead, which means his people are carrying out his last wishes. Abe told Alice he misses Lexie. When an alarm sounded, Roman told Marlena that someone in Salem was about to "die" and would be brought to the island. Julie dreamed that Doug is alive. Back in the real Salem, Bonnie vowed to get Mickey once he gets over Maggie's "death." Shawn failed to get the attention of a cop who was searching for him on Bo and Hope's behalf.
5/31/04-6/4/04: Philip slipped and told Belle he loves her. Belle didn't realize Philip was talking about her when he told her there is a "mystery woman" in his life. Rex is determined to stop Philip from moving in on Belle while Shawn is not around. Celeste told Hope that the spirits told her Shawn is in danger. After deciphering a riddle a spirit gave her, Hope told Bo they have to find Shawn or he will die. Shawn attempted to escape from Jan when she tried to seduce him. Marlena, Abe, and Roman worried that Jennifer may be the next to "die" and be brought to "New Salem." Marlena, Abe, and Roman also worried about Jack, who was trying to find a way off the island. Abe was concerned Lexie would follow his advice in a letter he left telling her to go on with her life if he died. Lexie was upset when Celeste touched Abe's letter, then said he was still alive. Tek didn't believe Patrick, who said he was never in prison.
6/7/04-6/11/04: Jan prevented Shawn from escaping by throwing a pot of hot coffee at him. After tending to Shawn's burns, a gun-toting Jan told him she was going to kill Belle. Shawn attempted to seduce Jan in order to keep her from killing Belle, but Jan eventually realized what Shawn was up to and head out to kill Belle. Instead of killing Belle, Jan took photos of Belle and Philip in romantic looking poses. Shawn was stunned when Jan showed him the photos of Belle and Philip, and taunted him that they appear to be in love. Marlena was surprised to see Victor, who told her he was actually "killed" by Jan and Nicole, but was brought to the island by whoever was behind the other "murders." Victor was stunned when Marlena said his evidence against Nicole (that she killed Colin), and his will, were missing from his safe. No one believed Jennifer, who said Jack contacted her via computer. On the phone, the mystery man (who had pretended to be Jack) told Patrick that Jennifer and her baby are going to die.
6/14/04-6/18/04: Patrick phoned the mystery man and told him to stop messing with Jennifer's head after she received another message from "Jack." Jennifer covered when Patrick saw her packing a suitcase, then kept mum that she heard from "Jack," and arranged to meet "Jack" at an old airfield. Patrick tried to warn Jennifer that someone is setting her up. Marlena was stunned to see Maggie, who said she had been in the jungle with Jack looking for a way off the island when Jack disappeared. Marlena told Roman that she now knows someone besides their mystery "host," wanted her dead, and recalled how Crystal tried to kill her in jail. In the real Salem, John is determined to prove Crystal had a connection to Marlena's "death." Crystal lied to John and said that Marlena tried to escape from jail in order to kill him. Shawn failed another attempt to escape from Jan. John agreed to help Belle find Shawn.
6/21/04-6/25/04: Patrick failed to get to Jennifer, who met Davies, the pilot, on an old airstrip. Jennifer got into the plane after Davies showed her a photo of Jack wearing the locket Abby had placed in his casket, and a videotaped message from Jack. On Captive Island, Abe and Roman were stunned to see Tony DiMera, who denied having anything to do with bringing the Salem Stalker "victims" to the island. Tony told Marlena that Stefano (who is supposedly dead) had no connection to the Salem Stalker because he would never have allowed Tony to be "killed" by Horton the tiger. While going in and out of consciousness, an ailing Jack "saw" Jennifer, learned they have a son, and that she married Patrick. Shawn was bummed when Jan, via a cable access TV channel, let him watch the opening of Bonnie and Mickey's restaurant, which is called Alice's, and he saw Belle and Philip enjoying what looked like an intimate dance.
6/28/04-7/2/04: Shawn got the keys to his makeshift cell during a struggle with Jan, but she halted his escape by knocking him out. Realizing Shawn faked amnesia when he said he didn't remember Belle, Jan forced him to watch an endless video loop of Belle and Philip dancing together. The TV was on but Shawn wasn't watching the NASCAR race when Belle made a public plea for Shawn's return. Davies crashed the plane while trying to take a cell phone away from Jennifer. Jennifer survived, then called for help after she fell off a cliff ledge. Hope and Patrick, who weren't in time to stop Jennifer from boarding the plane, heard the crash. On Captive Island, Maggie, Roman, Marlena, and a weakened Jack also heard the plane crash. Hope tried to arrest Patrick, who had to steal his doubloon (which he planned to use to rescue Jennifer) back after Bonnie pawned it. John plotted to use Earl, the prison guard, to prove Crystal caused Marlena's "death."

7/5/04-7/9/04: Hope caught Patrick in a cargo plane with the same logo as the plane Jennifer was on when it crashed. Hope wanted to arrest Patrick, who warned she would be putting Jennifer's life at risk if she stopped him from getting to her. Hope insisted on going with Patrick, who started to take off after the learned the plane Jennifer had been on made flights to uninhabited islands in the Caribbean. Racing to Hope's rescue, Bo and Tek tried to stop the plane from taking off. Bo heard Celeste predict Hope is going to die. Jack realized Jennifer was on Captive Island when he found the tag from her luggage near the plane crash site. Jennifer, who was clinging to a clump of grass on the cliff edge, fell to a ledge when Jack tried to rescue her. Jan kept Shawn from seeing Belle's televised plea for him to return home. On Nicole's orders, Jan knocked John out before Crystal could reveal to him that they had plotted to kill Marlena.
7/12/04-7/16/04: Jack rescued Jennifer from the side of the cliff. Later, Jennifer realized Jack was very ill when he passed out. Jack and Jennifer found shelter in a cave. Jennifer, who had false labor pains, passed out herself after she found Jack unconscious. Tek and Bo were watching on a mini-cam as the plane that Hope and Patrick were on entered restricted air space and was shot down by the military. Patrick and Hope managed to swim to Captive Island, washing up on shore in front of a stunned Marlena and Roman. Hope was shocked to see the Salem Stalker "victims" all still alive. Hope introduced everyone on the island to Patrick, and explained that he is Bonnie's son. After running into Jan, Philip suspects Jan is up to something even though she and Belle agreed to put the past behind them and be friends. Mimi tried to strangle Jan, but stopped when Jan said she's through with Shawn. Jan later taunted Shawn that Philip is living with Belle. Sami and Lucas made love.

7/19/04-7/23/04: Patrick escaped from Hope, Roman, and Abe after saying he had to rescue Jennifer or she and her baby would die. Hope, who nearly died trying to break through the electric force field around Captive Island, was stunned when Patrick used his doubloon to break the field. While searching for Jennifer, Patrick told Hope he had been sent to Salem to target Jennifer. Bo doesn't believe Hope is dead despite the fact that her blood was found on wreckage of the crashed plane. Jack fell into a pit, but escaped after Jennifer went for help. Jack tried to rescue Jennifer, who fell into a ravine when the rope bridge she was on broke. John, who found the stuffed bear Sami had placed in Marlena's coffin, decided to get a court order to dig up Marlena's grave and see what happened. Sami fumed upon learning John was going to dig up Marlena's grave. Jan was stunned when Belle and Philip arrived on her Kent Island doorstep. Kate fumed when Lucas said he and Sami had reconciled.
7/26/04-7/30/04: Belle was devastated when Jan, who lied to Belle, said she saw Shawn who told Jan he wants nothing to do with Belle, he's joining the Marines. After Jan gave Shawn's purity ring to Belle, Philip had it examined and found Shawn's prints on the ring. Shawn heard Belle's voice, but was unable to call for help because Jan had drugged him. Jan covered after giving Belle a description of her (fake) fiance that matched Shawn a little too closely. Jan played a tape for Shawn to prove Belle dumped him for Philip. On Captive Island, Roman, Marlena, and Abe hoped the cops in Salem would investigate Milbauer's Funeral Home, where they had been taken after their "deaths." Back in Salem, everyone believed Stefano was responsible when there was no body in Marlena's exhumed coffin. Hope and Patrick found Jack trying to rescue Jennifer from a ledge. Nicole arranged for Brady to think Chloe is cheating on him. Tek and Lexie kissed.
8/2/04-8/6/04: Unable to rescue Jennifer, Jack went to get help. After Jack left, Hope and Patrick failed a first attempt to rescue Jennifer from the ledge she was stranded on. Hope later tried to rescue both Jennifer and Patrick who, in trying to save Jennifer, ended up stranded on the same ledge with her. Back in Salem, Bonnie told Mimi she doesn't think Patrick died in the plane crash. John still suspects Stefano may be alive and responsible for Marlena's body being stolen from the coffin. Tek ignored a strange signal that came over his computer. On Captive Island, a mystery person left invitations to a party at Marlena's house, bringing everyone on the island together, then via a live TV feed, let them see that their friends and family in Salem appeared to be going on with their lives without them. Jan continued taunting Shawn with her own video feeds of Philip and Belle together. Sami accepted Lucas' marriage proposal.
8/9/04-8/13/04: Philip fantasized about making love to Belle, who is still devastated over losing Shawn. Shawn blamed Jan when he began to accept that Belle has moved on with Philip. Jan sent Shawn video images of Belle and Philip kissing. Bonnie urged Mimi to see a doctor when Mimi worried that she has uterine cancer and will die from it like her aunt did. Roman repaired the transmitter he and Abe made after Tony "accidentally" destroyed it. Tony mumbled that "he" wasn't going to like it when he learned Roman is trying to reach the outside world. Bo told John about the mysterious signal (from Abe and Roman's transmitter) he received on his computer. Marlena, Abe, Roman, and Doug were stunned to see Hope. Hope and Abe searched for Jennifer, Patrick, and Jack after the mystery man tailing Hope disabled the force field around the island. Patrick rescued Jennifer, who was in labor.

Brady was shocked when a doctor in a remote Austrian hospital told him Chloe was critical after a car accident. Nicole jumped in to console Brady after Nancy told him Chloe had died. Brady had an impromptu memorial service for Chloe. Kate and John didn't believe Bo, who said he received a transmission of a secret code developed by Roman that proves Roman and Marlena are alive. The mystery man who turned out to be Tony, destroyed the transmitter Abe and Roman set up. Bo, John, and Tek traced the signal to the Caribbean before it went off. Marlena tended to Roman, who is close to death because of an infected leg wound. Philip told Belle she is the "mystery" woman he loves. Shawn escaped from Jan, who vowed to recapture him.

9/6/04-9/10/04: Finding Roman and Abe's coffins empty, John realized Bo was right, the Salem Stalker's victims are alive. Tek traced the radio signal to "Melaswen" Island, which John realized was "New Salem" backwards. Flying to the island, Bo and John were shot down in the same military airspace as Hope and Patrick had been. Victor, Doug, and Maggie pulled John and Bo from the downed plane. Everyone on Captive Island reunited in "New Salem," but Bo worried Hope wasn't there. Patrick disappeared while he and Hope searched for Jack. The mystery person who was tailing Patrick and Hope closed in on Hope. While Brady held a memorial service for Chloe, Nancy failed to get Chloe, who feels she will never sing again and whose face is horribly disfigured from the car accident, to tell Brady she's alive. Mimi learned she doesn't have cancer, but she is carrying Rex's baby. Sami told Lucas she loves him, not Brandon.
9/13/04-9/17/04: Chloe showed Nancy her disfigured face, then rejected Nancy's plea to tell Brady she is alive. Since Chloe is "dead," Nicole fantasized ending up with the Kiriakis money, mansion, and Brady. Tony faked using his Zen powers, while pushing a button to shut down the electric fence around New Salem, so Bo could go search for Hope. Bo was stunned to find Billie Reed, who said she was kidnapped when she got close to figuring out who was behind the Salem Stalker "murders." Billie and Bo were separated after someone knocked them out with drugged darts. Patrick told Hope he is not plotting to kill Jack even though he knows Jack is the love of Jennifer's life. Bo found Patrick and Hope just as they saw who could be either Jack or Billie lying on a ravine ledge. Patrick fell into the raging rapids below when he tried to reach the ledge. Shawn escaped from Jan again and went looking for Belle.
9/20/04-9/24/04: Hope rescued Jack, who was the person on the ledge. Jack, Jennifer, and their newborn son were reunited. Bo and Hope told everyone that Patrick (supposedly) died when he fell into the river while trying to rescue Jack. Hope failed to keep Bo from going into the jungle to search for Billie. In the real Salem, Kate blamed Bo when she learned Billie (supposedly) died. Tony was surprised to see his Zen mentor/swordmaster, Hanzo Hattori, and Tony's former right-hand-man, Bart. It was learned the DiMeras masterminded "New Salem." Tony told Bart that if anyone escapes the perimeter of "New Salem," Stefano wants them killed. Tony was about to tell Bart why he and Stefano arranged the "murders" when Hope arrived to ask Tony to help her find Bo. When Shawn regained consciousness after a motorcycle accident, Lexie asked if he wanted to see Belle or Jan (who lied she and Shawn are engaged.)
9/27/04-10/1/04: Jan was thrilled Shawn, who regained consciousness, refused to see Belle (he had flashes of Belle and Philip making love). Jan lied to Shawn about being engaged after learning he has no memory of her holding him prisoner. Jan kept Belle from asking Shawn if his relationship with (Jan) is for real. Against Lexie's orders, Jan told Shawn that Bo and Hope are (presumed) dead. Brady told Belle that John and Bo are presumed dead. Shawn blamed Belle for Hope and Bo's (presumed) deaths. Hope stole the remote from Tony to release the force field around "New Salem", then searched for Bo. Hope found an injured Patrick and they sought shelter in a cave. Bo found Billie, but a mystery person shot them with darts. Bo later woke up alone. Bo found Hope and Patrick. Hope fumed when Bo went looking for Billie again. Kate told Philip that Billie is (presumed) dead. Kate vowed to get Sami out of Lucas' life.
10/4/04-10/8/04: Nicole stowed away on the boat that Brady and Tek used to get to Captive Island, where they searched for John and Bo. Brady and Nicole hitched a ride with one of Tony's thugs while looking for John and Bo. Tek ran into Abe, then covered and said "no" when Abe asked if Lexie was involved with anyone (she has been seeing Tek). Bo found Billie, who told him the DiMeras are behind "New Salem" and plan to take over the real Salem by bringing everyone from the real Salem to the island to control them. Patrick and Hope found Bo and Billie, then Tony took them all prisoner and told them he masterminded everything. Shawn checked himself out of the hospital, then told Belle he knows she asked Philip to make love to her. Lexie didn't believe Celeste, who said Abe is still alive, then warned Lexie not to get too close to Tek. Jan suggested she help Shawn raise his kid brother Zack.
10/11/04-10/15/04: Patrick convinced Tony, whom he is secretly working for, that he is still loyal to him. Tony foiled John, Bo and Roman's plan to escape their holding cell. Via an air-shaft, Brady ended up in the holding cell where he was reunited with John. Nicole, who was separated from Brady, was stunned when, via an air vent she landed in a holding cell with Tony's "mystery guest" who turned out to be Colin Murphy. Brady rescued Nicole, but thought she was hallucinating when she said she saw Colin, and he can clear her of his (Colin's) supposed murder. Tony revived Colin, who had passed out after he saw Nicole. Tony was uneasy when Stefano called and ordered him to implement their doomsday scenario. Shawn refused to listen when Belle tried to explain why she had been in Phillip's arms every time Shawn had seen her. Kate and Eugenia (Sami ruined Eugenia's nursing career) teamed up to destroy Sami.
10/18/04-10/22/04: Bo rescued Billie, who fell into a lava pit, then tried to hand him a CD-ROM containing Tony's computer files. John and Hope found Brady and Nicole in the airshaft to Tony's bunker. Nicole was shocked when Hope told her Victor is alive. John and Brady found the generator that controls power on the island and disabled it. John and Brady found Roman, and ran into Patrick and Nicole, who had Colin with them. Nicole told the others she saw Patrick program a computer (on Tony's orders) to cause the island volcano to erupt. Colin said Tony's vendetta against the Salemites has to do with his hatred for his half-brother, John. Tony had Patrick bring everyone to a study in the bunker, where John saw one of Stefano's trademark cigars. As part of her and Eugenia's plot to split up Sami and Lucas. Kate tried to persuade Brandon to return to Salem. Belle and Philip made love. Shawn and Jan made love
10/25/04-10/29/04: Tony told Roman, Patrick, John and Marlena he arranged for them to end up on Captive Island to prove to Stefano he was a real DiMera. Tony said he made Marlena the Salem Stalker to hurt John because he stole Kristen from him, and because Stefano had favored John as his loyal soldier. Tony told everyone he killed Stefano and used his blood to cure himself of a fatal blood disease. Tony then detonated a bomb that caused the island volcano to erupt. Abe saw Stefano's ring in the rubble of the study. Abe helped Brady, Nicole, an injured Victor, and Tek. Caroline told Nicole she knows what she did to Victor. Jennifer and Alice comforted each other. Jack vowed to protect Jennifer. Bo struggled to save Hope and Billie, who were surrounded by lava from the volcano. A seemingly dead Tony revived when Bart put Stefano's ring on his finger. 
11/1/04-11/5/04: Bart couldn't follow Tony's orders to kill John, Marlena, Roman, Abe, and Patrick. Later, John seemingly killed Tony with a dagger. However, Tony was able to detonate an explosive that caused the island volcano to erupt again, causing a giant tidal wave.
