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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Jack and Jennifer were mortified when J.T. fell out of the car and into the water below while still strapped in his car seat. An unsuccessful search was launched for J.T. 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. Stefano worried when an injured Lexie kept saying the babies had been switched. Nancy was humiliated to learn her "heart attack" was indigestion.
 
5/28/01-6/1/01: Lexie covered with Nancy after Stefano revealed Nancy had overheard a delirious Lexie say the babies had been switched. Stefano and Lexie then learned JT was missing. While the police told Hope and Bo someone may have taken JT if he survived the fall from the bridge, Glen and Barb had the baby in their car. 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.

After Philip convinced Chloe to talk to Nancy, she admitted she hates Nancy because she gave her up at birth.

Because she (lied) that she loves him, Rolf decided not to kill Hattie, who admitted seeing a body (Marlo's) at the DiMera mansion. Later, Rolf decided Hattie must die because she told Roman and Bo about the body. Roman suspects Stefano was trying to turn Hattie into Marlena. Marlena was upset when John said he is going to keep the memories of his dead wife Isabella alive for Brady's sake.
 
6/11/01-6/15/01: Stefano convinced Lexie that to keep Isaac, she would have to leave town with him. John burst into the DiMera mansion and demanded to know where "his" son, JT, was, but then told Lexie the boy is not his son. Stefano grabbed a gun and threatened to shoot Lexie when Bo, Roman, and the cops burst into the mansion to arrest him after Hattie's story about seeing a body (Marlo's) in the mansion. Stefano escaped after he wounded John. Shawn and Belle told everyone that they saw Stefano dressed like he was headed for Hawaii.

Lexie promised John that she wouldn't tell anyone he fathered Hope's baby. (He thinks he did).

Desperately wanting to regain her memory, Hope pleaded with John to tell her about the time they made love when she thought she was Princess Gina, but he refused. After a call from Stefano, Lexie convinced Abe to move into the DiMera mansion so that she won't lose Isaac.

Brady also denied Nicole's suggestion that he and Chloe are involved. Also during the dance, Philip was humiliated when Kate showed up in a tattered second-hand dress. With her dress falling apart, Kate (who is sure Philip will get Victor to give her some money) agreed to Philip's plea that she leave.
