Paulina: Shouldn’t we have heard something by now? What’s taking so long?
Lani: I’m sure we will hear something soon.
Paulina: Yeah. Well. I can’t wait around here any longer. I’m going to get some answers.
Lani: No, wait. Auntie, wait. No, you’ll just get in the doctors’ way.
Paulina: So I’m supposed to stand around here not knowing if abe’s alive or–
Eli: Auntie paulina, this isn’t helping, okay? You gotta get it together.
Paulina: Right. Right. I know. I know. But I’m losing my mind worrying about abe.
Eli: You stay here with lani. I’ll see what I can find out.
Kayla: We’re losing too much blood into his chest cavity. Start two large-bore ivs. Type and cross four units. I’m gonna place a chest tube.
[Beeping] Ah, we’re losing him! We need to start cpr. If we can’t get him to the or, I need to keep the chest tube in here! We need that blood.
John: I know who you are, and I’m ready for you. And I swear to god I will battle you for my wife, and I will defeat you just like I did the last time.
Demon marlena: Aren’t you the clever one, john black? There’s nothing you can do about it.
Demon marlena: Your precious marlena is mine now.
John: My dear god.
Demon marlena: You have confused me with the other guy. Let me clarify for you.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
John: Leave her alone. Release her this instant!
Demon marlena: After all the time I put into possessing her? I think not.
John: Doc? Can you hear me? I’m here to help you, doc. I will never give up on you!
Demon marlena: One more step, and I will hurt her.
John: I won’t let you do that.
Demon marlena: How do you plan to stop me? Holy water? Really? You think I hadn’t prepared for that?
[Sizzling] Any better ideas?
Julie: I just heard. I just– paulina, I’m so sorry.
Paulina: Thank you.
Julie: I just left marlena at st. Luke’S. And we each lit a candle for abraham.
Lani: Thank you, julie. We–we really appreciate that.
Julie: Had to elbow my way through a bunch of reporters down there in the lobby.
Paulina: Bunch of damned vultures. That’s what they are.
Julie: No, no, just put that out of your mind, paulina, and you just focus on abe. Maybe by now, he’s past the worst of it.
Kayla: And again. Clear! Come on. Come on.
Nurse: Sir, you can’t be in here.
Eli: I’m salem pd. Kayla, what–what is going on?
Kayla: He’s gone.
Lexie: Hello, abe. I thought I was managing my moderate
John: In the name of the father, and of the son, and of the holy spirit–
Demon marlena: Knock it off! Your meaningless prayer is not gonna help marlena! And, in fact, it’s making me want to hurt her more.
John: Please don’t! Don’T.
Demon marlena: Then do as I say! All I’ve gotta do is snap my fingers, and I can stop marlena’s heart cold.
John: No, you won’t!
Demon marlena: Oh, yes. It’s what I would’ve done to doug if marlena hadn’t listened to reason.
John: What does that mean?
Demon marlena: It means we struck a bargain. I wouldn’t kill marlena’s friend, doug, if she would let me back in.
John: So that was it.
Demon marlena: Because she couldn’t bear to have her dear friend die. That’s just the kind of person she is. So we’re together again.
John: I don’t understand. It’s been over 25 years. Why would you come back for her now?
Julie: Paulina, you’re going to wear a groove in the linoleum. Why don’t you just sit with us for a while?
Paulina: All right. All right. For a while.
Julie: You know, I understand that you and abe are engaged. I haven’t had a chance to congratulate you yet.
Paulina: Thank you. We’re very happy. Or we were.
Julie: You know, abe has been a dear friend to my husband and me for such a long time, but that’s just one of the reasons we were so thrilled when eli married lani. They made it official we’re really family.
Paulina: Well, how long have you and your husband known abe?
Julie: Oh my, let me see. Well, he was still a cop. Actually, he was working on a case that involved my son, david, eli’s father. It just hit me. Abe has been a part of our lives for 40 years. And I know that he’s gonna be around for many, many more.
Eli: It’s not possible.
Kayla: I’m sorry, there’s no heartbeat.
Eli: So that’s it? There’s nothing else you can do? Kayla, please!
Kayla: It’s a long shot, but I’m going to keep going. I’m not gonna give up. Come on, abe! Come on!
Abe: Lexie. Oh, my god. It’s been ten years since I lost you, but not a day’s gone by that I–that I don’t think of you, that I miss you. You’re still in my heart and in theo’s, our precious son. He’s so kind, gentle, and when he smiles, there you are, my sweet lexie.
Lexie: You raised him well, abe.
Abe: Oh, no, no. I won’t take credit, not all of it. You were there, as I said, and you are in his heart and in his smile. You’re there always. Always, always. We do it every night.
Demon marlena: You know, the first time I took control of marlena, she was alone. She was in despair. Made my job so easy. But now–
John: But now, marlena is surrounded by people who really love her.
Demon marlena: Yes. A very effective shield. And when the two of you were so deeply in love, I’ve never seen her so strong as she became then. I know the dark days when she was under the spell of andre dimera. Wow, she was so distraught when she killed all those innocent civilians in salem, starting with abe, of course. But then it turned out that everybody was alive, even abe. But I guess abe isn’t so lucky now, is he?
Paulina: 40 years, that’s a long time to know somebody.
Julie: Well, time flies by, but I must tell you, abraham has not changed very much. He was always a wonderful man.
Paulina: I feel you. When I first set eyes on abraham, it was eight months ago, but I feel like I’ve known him forever.
Lani: Auntie, this is my father.
Paulina: So this is the famous abraham carver. The man who knocked up my sister. And if you’d have told me that I’d be engaged to him eight months later… I–I can’t–I can’t– I can’t lose him. I can’t lose him now.
Lani: Auntie, you’re not gonna lose him, and neither am I.
Paulina: Oh, well, it’s about time! Now, what did you find out? Is abraham gonna be all right?
Kayla: Come on, abe! Come back to us. Do you hear me? Come on! Come on.
Abe: Oh, just the other day, I was looking through an old photo album, and there we were, just the two of us. You know, 20 years ago, we were so young, so in love. And then– then there were three of us.
Lexie: You and me and our precious theo.
Abe: Yes. Yes. Theo. Theo had finally arrived. Look, I also know that I overreacted in dr. Bader’s office. But I just hate talking about our love life and our trying to conceive a child in just such cold, clinical terms.
Lexie: I know it’s not easy for you. But, honey, I really think we’ve found a way to make it work. Yeah.
Abe: Well, I tell you what, I am all for this way of making it work. Science and spontaneous passion, that’s an unbeatable combination, just like you and me.
Lexie: I want us to have a baby so much, abe. I just–no matter what we have to do, okay?
Abe: So do I. So do I. But even if we don’t, I still have you and me. And that’s enough for me. Come here. It took years, but it was so well worth the wait.
Lexie: I’m sorry about what happened at the hospital.
Abe: Ah, the only thing that matters is that you came home with me.
Abe: Hey, you said you wanted to tell me something.
Lexie: Yeah. I decided to wait until we came here because the last time I was here– something happened today, and it happened after we decided to try again. I think it’s a sign, abe. No, no, no, it’s more than a sign. It’s a gift. I wanted so badly for it to happen that I let it come between us. And the moment that I was willing to just let it go, it happened!
Abe: Why don’t you come on and just tell me, will you?
Lexie: Honey, we’re having a baby!
Abe: And then, nine months later, there he was, our theo, our miracle. And you live on in him, my love, and so will we both. So will we both. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.
Abe: You know, there was another photo album. There were pictures of us. And I saw, in those pictures, the sadness in our eyes. And it made me wish that I had been kinder, more compassionate. And I saw that, with some benefit of time and perspective, what kind of struggle you had, how much you had to overcome.
Lexie: Honey, I don’t know what you’re talking about.
Abe: How long ago did you know about the baby switch? Wow, so you still can’t tell the truth, can you? Don’t even–don’t–don’t answer ’cause it doesn’t matter what you say. I can’t believe you. You know, money may have bought silence from barb reiber. It’s not gonna buy you love, or happiness, or another child.
Lexie: Abe, I–
Abe: You said I didn’t put our family first, but you put yourself ahead of bo and hope, glen and barb, me, and most important, zack. You were willing to let zack and jt go through their whole lives and not know who their biological parents were, who love them and want them desperately because you were just so jealous, so selfish. And you were–you were willing to do–do more than lie. So where did that get you, huh? Where did that get us? I’m sick–I am sick when I thinking of what you did. I’m sicker still when I think of what I just did. Oh, my god–oh my god. We just talked about–we talked about forever–forever. When it should have been never. Difficult times, as there always are, but the hardest thing of all, for me, was losing you.
Eli: They’re still working on him. Kayla said it could be a while.
Paulina: Oh, I don’t have a good feeling about this.
Julie: You know, paulina, there’s a place right across the street that could give us all some comfort.
Paulina: Oh, where’s that?
Julie: St. Luke’s church. There’s not much we do for abraham here, but I know he could use our prayers.
Demon marlena: Marlena hated herself for being andre’s pawn. That’s when I thought I had my chance, but then it turned out that all those supposed victims of hers were alive, and she was blameless.
John: That’s right. And she and i got back together after that. Remember that, doc?
Demon marlena: There is no doc. There is only what I create.
John: I’ll never believe it.
Demon marlena: Well, then you’re a fool. I have waited and waited for years, and I finally got my chance. My old friend stefano dimera created a situation, and marlena believed that you had been killed by a hit-and-run driver, and she was distraught.
John: Until she found out that I was alive.
Demon marlena: Yes. And you found your way back together as you always do over and over and over. And then I found doug. He was perfect. Doug then became my target.
John: Oh, so you possessed him. He was the one that was doing all those things to julie. My god! When I think of all the times he tried to warn me about marlena.
Demon marlena: He did try to warn you, but you wouldn’t listen. But I was afraid at some point you might believe him. So I clocked julie over the head and I framed doug for it.
John: And that’s why he’s in bayview.
Demon marlena: I had marlena commit him there long-term. He can’t have anybody come to see him. He can’t even have his cute but annoying wife come to visit. So doug was the only person who knew about me, and he was taken care of. But now you know about me, and that’s a problem.
Lani: I have been putting off calling theo and brandon, but I don’t think I should wait anymore.
Eli: Come over here so we can talk.
Lani: I really hate having to break the news to theo. He’s so far away.
Eli: You want me to make the call?
Lani: No. Just don’t leave.
[Line trilling] Hi. Hey, theo, I am so sorry to wake you up in the middle of the night. Yeah. Theo, something happened. It’s dad.
Paulina: Oh. Damn it!
Julie: Slippery thing, isn’t it? Let me get that.
Paulina: Nice try. I’m usually the queen of together. I never fall apart.
Julie: Well, women like us always think we have to be the strong ones. But when something like this happens, it’s good to remember we’re only human.
Paulina: I hate being so helpless.
Julie: Yeah. I understand. The sanitarium where doug is, they– the doctors won’t let me see him.
Paulina: What? You’re his wife.
Julie: Well, they say he’s not himself. And they say he’s a danger to me.
Paulina: They say?
Julie: It’s killing me, paulina. I’m not there to hold him and tell him I’ll always love him.
Paulina: You want to get into that hospital? I know a lawyer. He can get anybody in anywhere.
Julie: Oh, honey, thank you. I’ll think about it.
Paulina: You do that.
Julie: You know, paulina, I believe– I believe that abe and doug feel that we’re with them. I mean, we don’t have to be in the same room for them to know how much we love them. They want to be with us just like we want to be with them. But until we can hold them, can we just be there for each other? I mean, we sort of get each other, don’t we?
Paulina: Yeah. You and me, we got the same chip.
Julie: [Laughs] Right.
Paulina: Thank you, my friend.
Julie: Oh, ohh.
Abe: You were so brave, selfless. With your big heart, you wanted to make it easier for me to lose you. And I wanted you to believe that you had succeeded. You really hadn’T. It’s getting a little chilly out here. You know what, I think I’m gonna run in and get us another blanket, okay? Lex? Come on, sweetheart. Just wake up. Lex? Lexie? Lexie? Lexie? Wake up. Wake up. Wake up, sweetheart. Oh, god. Oh, god. Oh, god! Oh, god! Oh, god! Oh, god. But now, my love, we’ll be together again.
Lexie: No, abe. We can’T.
Demon marlena: I knew it wouldn’t take you long to figure out there was something very wrong with marlena. After all, you’ve been through it before. But, in fairness, I have picked up some new techniques over the decades.
John: Well, your new techniques, they’re not gonna help you hold onto doc any more than your old ones did. I beat you once, and I’m gonna beat you again because the love that doc and i share is stronger than any bond you will ever have on her. And I’m gonna get my wife back. And I’m not gonna leave this church until I take her with me. On the outside, I looked fine.
Demon marlena: You’re wasting your time. Marlena has given herself to me completely. She is lost to you.
John: I’ll never believe that. Listen to me, doc! I know what you’re going through right now, and I’m here fighting for you. Don’t surrender!
Demon marlena: She can’t hear you! Don’t you know that?
Marlena: Yes, I can!
John: I love you, doc!
Marlena: I hear you, and I feel you. Your love is making me stronger. I’m–I’m trying, john.
Demon marlena: Silence!
Paulina: How’d your brother take the news?
Lani: He sounded all right. I could tell that he was scared. But he’s gonna get on the first flight from johannesburg.
Julie: Good. Did you reach brandon?
Lani: No. I had to leave a message.
Julie: Well, I hope he can make it too. It’s so important for abe to have his children around him.
Julie: Just a blessing that you’re here, lani. I hope you know how much your father loves you. Crazy about you.
Lani: He is the dad that I have always dreamed of. He and I were robbed of so much. This can’t be the end because I don’t know how I will stand it.
Abe: We can’t be together? I don’t want to leave you.
Lexie: I’ll be here, my darling, waiting. But it’s not your time yet. I think you know that.
Abe: Yes, I know it. I know it now. My children– my children need me and my grandchildren, my friends, paulina. I know I have to go back.
Lexie: And so you will, my love.
Abe: God bless you, lexie. I’ll be seeing you in my heart, and so will theo. I will be seeing you in his smile.
Kayla: Come on, come on.
Nurse: Dr. Johnson, we’ve been at this for a while. I think it’s time to call it.
Kayla: I know. Time of death–
[Heart monitor beeping] Oh, abe! Abe, can you hear me?
Nurse: We have a heartbeat!
Kayla: Oh, oh, abe. Facing expensive vitamin c creams with dull results?
Demon marlena: I have waited a lifetime for this.
Marlena: No, please. Don’t kill him. I won’t let you kill him!
Demon marlena: Ahh! All right, fine. I won’t kill him. At least not yet. He may be useful in some way. But I certainly can’t leave him here in this condition. Ugh.
Lani: Oh, hey, kayla, how is he? How’s my dad?
Kayla: Well, it was intense for a while, and he still needs to go to surgery.
Kayla: But I am very optimistic that he’s gonna pull through.
Paulina: Oh, ohh! Wonderful! Thank god! Oh!
Lani: Can we see him?
Kayla: Just for a short time, all right? I mean, he’s been through a major trauma, and he’s very weak.
Lani: I won’t stay long, okay? It’s just–thank you. Kayla, thank you. Thank you so much. Can my aunt come with me?
Paulina: I’ll be quiet as a mouse. I swear.
Kayla: Okay. This way.
Paulina: I’m right here, right here, and so is lani.
Lani: Don’t talk. Don’t talk, dad. Opening your eyes is enough for me. You know, you gave everyone a real scare. But you’re gonna be okay.
Paulina: Thank you for fighting your way back to us. We love you so much.
Abe: I love you.
Lani: I love you, dad.
Abe: I love you.
