At John and Marlena’s, Susan excitedly has a cupcake from the Sweet Bits Bakery. Johnny remarks that it must run in the family to have a weakness for Sweet Bits.

Outside the DiMera Mansion, EJ apologizes to Belle for what he said earlier and being unfeeling about a child’s life. EJ calls it a very ham-handed attempt to make her feel better.

Johnny questions Susan thinking that EJ has a thing for Belle and that’s why she moved in with them. Marlena explains that Belle and Shawn are just having problems lately since Belle can’t bear that Shawn feels responsible for taking care of Jan. Susan says that Belle had good reasons to leave but it doesn’t explain why she went to the DiMera Mansion instead of the Salem Inn. Marlena argues that it doesn’t mean there is something going on.

Marlena thinks they are making Johnny uncomfortable. Johnny says he’s not uncomfortable but scared because if Sami ever finds out that Belle likes EJ, he’s not sure they will make it to their next birthdays. Susan agrees on Sami flipping her lid. Johnny suggests changing the subject since Marlena is worried enough about Belle after Jan had her baby tonight. Susan agrees and apologizes to Marlena for being insensitive. Marlena suggests they just have some cupcakes. Johnny says he just asked Allie to give him an assortment from the bakery. Susan questions Allie being back at the Bakery. Johnny responds that Allie acted cool towards him but Chanel pretended like she didn’t even see him. Susan says she’s sorry.

Kayla calls that a great idea as she knows they would love to see him and spend time with him. Steve says it’s a good idea but it caught him by surprise. Tripp credits his near death experience for making him realize that family is what really matters so he wants to get to know Stephanie and Joey as his sister and brother. Tripp adds that he’s been thinking about going out there for awhile and laying in the hospital bed made him realize you never know how much time you have, so you have to do the things that really matter before it’s too late…
