    ABC News announced today the premiere of “Truth and Lies: The Last Gangster,” a two-hour event special on the infamous Gambino mob family, featuring a new interview with one of the most notorious hitmen in mafia history, Sammy “The Bull” Gravano. In a blockbuster interview, Gravano reveals secret rites and practices of the mafia and speaks candidly about the use of murder as an instrument of power and control. Gravano, a man who murdered 19 people, including his closest friend and his brother-in-law, was part of a violent brotherhood known as “Cosa Nostra.” For years he and John Gotti, the head of the Gambino family, controlled tremendous portions of New York City’s economy under a rule of fear and intimidation, and his loyalty to “The Family” came at a devastating cost. Ultimately, Gravano became a witness for the FBI, and his testimony brought down the mafia. Together with Gravano’s 1997 Diane Sawyer interview, the special features new interviews with Gravano’s son Gerard and daughter Karen; Curtis Sliwa; former mobsters John Gotti Jr., Larry Mazza, Michael Francese and Anthony Ruggiano; Ruggiano’s daughter Toni Lee; companions of both Gravano and Gotti; daughters of Gravano’s victims; “Sopranos” producer and writer Terence Winter; and former FBI and NYPD officers who led the Gambino investigation. “Truth and Lies: The Last Gangster” premieres Thursday, Jan. 27 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EST), on ABC.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Tessa: So, I asked mariah to come to society and help me with a promoter.

Mariah: Only there was no promoter. It was this beautiful, romantic set-up, and then… tessa got down on one knee.

Tessa: Oh, my gosh, the look on her face — priceless!

Mariah: I was like, “are you doing what I think you’re doing?”

Sharon: Wait, you mean —

Both: We’re engaged!

Sharon: Oh, my gosh! Oh, my gosh! Wow, congratulations! That’s amazing.

Mariah: Thank you!

Sharon: Oh!

Christine: Thank you for coming on such short notice.

Amanda: It’s not a problem.

Devon: Before you guys say anything, I know that things got really heated last time we all talked, and just know we all want the same thing, and that’s what’s best for dominic.

Abby: Well, like I said over the phone…chance and I talked, and we have something to tell you.

Ashland: Well, I’ll walk these contracts up to legal as soon as we are done here.

Victoria: Thank you.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] The changes that we’re requesting are pretty minor, so we shouldn’t have any pushback from chancellor. And it looks like lily is staying out of it, letting jill put the chanccomm sale to bed. Is that your impression, too? What is it?

Victoria: Uh, nothing. I’m sorry, what was your question?

Ashland: Why don’t we talk about what’s bothering you instead?

Victoria: What adam said about dad, it just got me thinking.

Ashland: Well, that’s a bit shocking.

Victoria: Yes, I know, I’m usually trying to ignore everything that comes out of his mouth. It’s just so much noise.

Ashland: But this time?

Victoria: Adam’s right about one thing — our father can be very unpredictable. He sees the world as a big three-dimensional game of chess.

Ashland: And he views you kids as his pawns.

Victoria: Sometimes. But it was a very good reminder that, no matter how well things are going and no matter how much he seems to be supporting you, you can never let your guard down, not for one second.

Ashland: Well, I take nothing for granted where victor’s concerned — or anybody else, for that matter. You are the only person I trust completely. And I hope you feel the same about me.

Victor: By the way, I’ve put adam on notice that I’m gonna take a more active role at newman media.

Nikki: Oh. Because of how close billy came to deceiving him?

Victor: Showed a serious lack of judgment on adam’s part, you know? And, um, I don’t even want to mention his decision to involve this spectra woman.

Nikki: Well, I think it’s great that you’re going to be more of a presence. And I know you can’t wait to get back into the game. Now, as far as adam goes, I’m sure he was none too pleased.

Victor: Well, I’ve given him every chance to succeed, you know? And, uh…

[ Sighs ] No damage has been done so far to the company. I want to make sure that it doesn’T.

Nikki: Well, you’re right to be cautious. Adam is just going to have to accept your decision — or not.

Nick: Hey, there.

Nikki: Hey, you two. What a surprise.

Victor: What a surprise.

Nikki: Yes.

Victor: What are you doing here?

Noah: Dad and I have some news we want to share. And, grandpa, I wanted you to hear this from me personally. Yo you ready?

Additional sponsorship

provided by… eggland’s best.

Michael: I’ve been thinking about the offer you made the other day.

Victor: I’m sure you didn’t trek all the way out here to turn me down.

Michael: I am intrigued by the possibility of doing some private work with you…

Victor: Uh-huh.

Michael: …As long as it’s not overwhelming, which would defeat the whole purpose of my resignation.

Victor: Of course. I understand that, you know, but don’t you worry. I will make this as appealing to you as possible, okay?

Lauren: I’m sorry I’m late.

Michael: Hey. Give me a kiss.

Lauren: Hi, darling.

Michael: Mwah. You want some coffee?

Lauren: No, I want you to stop keeping me in suspense. How was the meeting with victor?

Michael: He made an even more compelling argument for why i should work with him after i officially resign as da.

Lauren: Ha-ha. Well, you’re gonna have to stop using the word “resign” or “retire” after you’re on his payroll. I mean, you only too well

[Sighs] How demanding he can be.

Michael: This time it’s gonna be different.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] Oh, those are famous last words.

Michael: No, no, I made it clear to him that if I accept his deal, that I will not be at his beck and call 24/7.

Lauren: Oh, really? And how did he respond?

Michael: He promised not to monopolize my time.

Lauren: Hmm, well [Chuckles] If victor promised.

Michael: No, no, he pitched this more as a cerebral partnership where I use legal strategies and tactics to secure his legacy.

Lauren: Wow, that seems very respectful.

Michael: I believe it will be. No more getting hauled out of bed at 2:00 A.M. Look, he understands that I am seriously not interested in any job that consumes my life.

Lauren: Okay. Well, why don’t we talk about why you’re interested. Let’s do columns of plus and minuses, and then you can weigh in on what you want to do.

Michael: You’re good.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] Yes.

Michael: Thank you.

Lauren: Yes, I am.

Michael: I need that kind of clarity. I have to be ruthlessly honest in order to make the decision that’s best for you and me.

Noah: I’ve accepted a full-time position at new hope.

Victor: Whoa, wait a minute. That’s a hell of a turnaround from what you were doing.

Nick: Yep, I am planning on keeping him very busy.

Noah: Grandpa, I hope you’re not mad that I chose to do this instead of more work for you and adam.

Victor: No. Not at all, noah. I’m very happy that you’re working side-by-side with your father.

Nikki: So am I. I’m thrilled.

Noah: Thanks, grandma.

Victor: So what will your new position entail?

Noah: The plan is to learn every facet of the organization, top to bottom.

Nick: Then we will figure out what’s the best fit for him.

Nikki: Well, what about your art? You’re so talented and I know you have a lot of passion for it.

Noah: Yeah, well, see, that’s just it. You know, the reason I felt so dissatisfied when I left london, it had become less and less about the art and more about commerce. I was letting all these so-called elites tell me what they thought was good instead of just expressing myself through my art and trying to connect with people.

Victor: Ah.

Noah: The whole process, it had become so unorganic. There was no joy in it. I had no spark, and it wasn’t until I came back here and started working on tessa’s album cover that it finally came back. Anyways, I’m gonna get back to my art, doing it for myself, but first, I feel like I need a reset, and I think being a part of what my dad’s created is a step in the right direction. And now that I have a better understanding of what new hope’s all about, I admire this guy even more. You know, he gets up every day and actually improves people’s lives. He doesn’t brag about it. He doesn’t have a pr firm. He doesn’t just say he’s gonna give back to the community. He just gets out there and does it.

Nick: Okay, that’s — that’s more than enough.

Noah: [ Laughs ]

Nikki: [ Chuckles ]

Noah: Besides, what could be better than working with my old man?

Victor: Not a thing, son. Not a thing.

Devon: So what have you guys decided?

Abby: Chance and I are ready to accept your conditions. At first, when you brought up the idea of revising our agreement, getting formal visitation, I…could only hear alarm bells, and I was terrified. You know, we still have so much healing to do.

Chance: I have a lot more healing to do. You know, much more than I let on.

Abby: And I would never want anyone to get in the way of that or tear our family apart with some court battle.

Devon: No, and I never wanted it to get to that point either. I was always hoping that the three of us could work something out.

Amanda: And it seems like you have.

Abby: Chance helped me see that this is what’s best for dominic, and I have nothing to be afraid of.

Devon: Well, thank you. Truly, I really do mean that. And — and you really don’t have anything to be afraid of, abby. I promise you that, ’cause this doesn’t change any part of the dynamic. This has always been about the three of us doing everything we can to give dominic the best possible upbringing.

Christine: That should always be the focus. The child’s wellbeing, it supersedes everything.

Devon: Absolutely. And, guys, I don’t just have love for dominic. I love the both of you, too. Really, you guys are like family to me, and I never, ever had any intention of taking anything from you. I never will.

Abby: I didn’t see that before, but I do now.

Chance: Me too. And I’m sorry it took so long to realize that. I mean, devon, you’ve done so much for our son already. You helped bring him into this world. You watched over him while abby was in spain. I mean, since the day that you offered to be our donor, I mean, you’ve been a strong and steady presence for him, and I really appreciate that, man.

Devon: That’s — absolutely, and that’s never gonna change.

Abby: And just for the record, this isn’t about chance and me backing down from a fight or giving in. This is what you and dominic deserve.

Living with diabetes?

Christine: Alright, so amanda and I will negotiate all the specifics of the joint custody agreement, put together all necessary paperwork.

Amanda: And it will take some time for the courts to finalize things, but we will approach this in the spirit in which the decision was made. Everyone coming from a place of mutual respect and working together for dominic’s benefit.

Devon: I do have one request that I’d like to make.

Christine: Yeah, now would be the time.

Devon: Abby, I’ve always really, really appreciated how much thought you put into dominic’s name and making sure that it, you know, reflects everyone that he’s a part of and everyone who’s a part of him. And in that same spirit, I’d like to give him neil’s last name, ’cause he’s your godfather, and I just thought it would be a great way to honor the man that showed me what being a father and being a family is all about. So I would love if he would be known as dominic phillip newman-abbott-winters- chancellor.

Chance: That sounds perfect.

Devon: Yeah?

Chance: Yeah.

Devon: Thank you.

Sharon: What a gorgeous ring, and it looks like it’s a perfect fit.

Tessa: Just like us.

Mariah: Aww.

Sharon: I’m so happy for you two.

Mariah: Thank you, mom.

Tessa: You know, we’re happy for us too.

[ Laughter ]

Sharon: Okay, I know how much you two love each other, so please don’t take this the wrong way.

Mariah: Oh, god, what?

Sharon: I just hope you’re not only doing this because you think it’ll help your chances of adoption.

Mariah: Oh, what?

Tessa: Oh.

Mariah: No, no.

Tessa: Absolutely not.

Mariah: No, we’re not getting married because of how it’s gonna look on the adoption forms.

Tessa: No, that’s not the reason I proposed at all.

Mariah: Mom, we want this so much, and it is the perfect next step for us. We’re really excited to start planning.

[ Laughs ]

Sharon: Planning a wedding! Faith is going to be in heaven.

Mariah: Oh, my gosh, we should call her and tell her.

Tessa: Oh, yes, we should definitely share in our happiness.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Lauren: Okay, let’s start in the cons column.

Michael: Alright.

Lauren: The reason you wanted to step down as da is because you wanted to spend more time with me. Now, best case scenario, that’s gonna be cut into.

Michael: No, no, you are my priority. I’m going to ensure that work conforms to our life and our schedule rather than the other way around. Oh, come on, if I don’t work at all, I’m gonna be insufferable, as gloria and kevin were so quick to point out.

Lauren: Okay, moving on in the cons column…

Michael: Alright, alright, alright.

Lauren: …Is victor himself. The man thrives on chaos.

Michael: No, the man is a business genius who simply wants to secure his legacy.

Lauren: Oh, honey. He does not want to hire a man of your caliber so he can ride peacefully off into the sunset. He needs a legal ninja who can kick ass and take names and move along his agenda.

Michael: He did say things were about to get interesting.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] See? I knew it.

Michael: No, I’ll be doing exciting work that will get my blood going. That’s a definite plus in my book.

Lauren: Right, in the shark-infested waters of the newman corporate world and the accompanying family drama.

Michael: [ Clears throat ] Which would make for some rather pleasant pillow talk.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] You are very sexy when your blood is boiling.

[ Laughs ]

Michael: I am. Tsss. Pro column.

Lauren: Wow. You are really excited about this.

Michael: I am.

Lauren: I haven’t seen you this excited about work in a long time.

Michael: And the pay will be excellent. Of that, I have no doubt.

Lauren: Ah. But did victor tell you what you were going to have to do for this money?

Michael: Uh, other than strategize? He, uh, did hint at a particular concern.

Ashland: I know you and I are in a much better place, but given everything you know, if you’re still not ready to trust me 100%…

Victor: I’m always gonna trust you, until you give me a reason not to.

Ashland: Fair enough. Although some might say i already have.

Victoria: You kno you shared some very painful things about your past with me, things that, you know, you were ashamed of, but you dealt with them. And I understand now why you held back in telling me. You were — you were worried that I wouldn’t understand that those things are a part of who you are. But they don’t define you — the man that you are, the man that I love, who’s been so goodto me.

Ashland: Thank you for understanding.

Victoria: We have been living under the threat of your illness for such a long time. But now we have reason to hope that we’re gonna have more time together and enjoy this life that we’ve built together and make each other deliriously happy.

Ashland: You know, the day that we went over to your mom and dad’s to tell them the good news about how well the treatments were working, victor said to me that if I beat this cancer, I’d eventually get tired of smelling the roses, that I’d want to jump back into the fray.

Victoria: I remember.

Ashland: Well, he said it jokingly, but after what you shared, I’m starting to wonder if he was actually considering the possibility.

Victoria: The two of us, side-by-side, running newman/locke — we would be a force to be reckoned with and then some, wouldn’t we?

Ashland: Well, that’s how the man’s mind works, so i understand you’d be worried about what he might be planning, despite how cordial it seems at the moment.

Victoria: Yeah. And that’s not all. I showed my hand about newman media.

Ashland: And you’re wondering if it was the best move. You still want to take over the company, don’t you?

Victoria: More than anything.

Why hide your skin if dupixent

Mariah: Hi. I know I don’t usually call you at school, but we thought that this is something that you might want to know right away. By “we,” I mean tessa, mom, and me. We’re at crimson lights right now, and tessa and I wanted to share some news with you. We’re engaged. Oh, boy. Okay. Yep. Yeah, you’re excited. I can tell. Oh, my goodness.

[ Laughs ] Well, yeah, it was beautiful. I mean, it was this wonderful romantic setting, and tessa got down on one knee and she gave me this gorgeous ring. Did I cry? No, I didn’t — I didn’t cry. I didn’t — oh.

Tessa: Yeah, she definitely did.

Mariah: Okay, yes, yes, of course I cried. Like a baby. But — no, we don’t know. A date?

[ Laughs ] This just happened. But we will need somebody to help plan an epic wedding, so, like, I don’t know if you know anybody who would be able to do that. I mean, do you?

[ Laughs ] I’m teasing. Of course I meant you. Oh, yeah, she’s right here. Do you want to talk to her? Okay. I love you too. Bye.

Tessa: [ Chuckles ] Hi! So what do you think of our news?

[ Laughs ] You’re sweet. Yeah, we’re excited, too. Oh, a spring wedding? Well, you know, we haven’t really thought that detail out quite yet.

Sharon: No time to waste.

Tessa: I mean, this literally just happened. I asked mariah to marry me like an hour ago tops.

Mariah: Oh, hey, guys. Perfect timing. Tessa and I have some amazing news to share.

Nikki: Now it all makes sense.

Victor: Yeah?

Nikki: Why noah walked away from a seemingly vibrant life and career in london to come home to genoa city. I mean, now that I know the whole story, I really admire his courage.

Victor: You know, it can be tough to admit to oneself that one has to change direction.

Nikki: Absolutely. But I have to say, this is the happiest I have seen him since he got home. All caught up in what his father’s doing, wanting to work by his side.

[ Sighs ]

Victor: I meant what I said when I mentioned the fact that it makes me happy that he’s working side-by-side with his father.

Nikki: Yes. And, you know, when I think about how newman media started, I mean, adam seemed like he was putting his life in a different direction.

Victor: Yeah, well, there’s that.

Nikki: Well, adam has surprised me in a good way. Maybe he’ll surprise you, too.

Victor: Yeah. My darling, I promise you, though, that my new expanded role at newman media will not take away from my time with you.

Nikki: Victor, I know that family is the most important thing to you. Being a good husband, being a good father.

Michael: Oh, gang’s all here. I’m so sorry. Joan just showed me in. I didn’t mean to interrupt.

Victor: Hello, michael.

Michael: You look beautiful.

Nikki: Oh, well, aren’t you sweet? Thank you so much. You know what? I need to check in with the office, so excuse me.

Victor: Okay, my darling. Alrighty.

Michael: I’m here to discuss terms.

Victor: Really? Glad to hear that.

Abby: So what are the next steps?

Dominic: [ Crying ]

Christine: We should have a proposal for you to look at soon.

Devon: Okay, that sounds great. In the meantime, I’ll get my place prepared for his first overnight.

Amanda: Sounds like a plan.

Christine: Well, I’m gonna get to work.

Amanda: Oh, me toO. We’ll walk out with you.

Devon: Sure.

Chance: Alright.

Abby: This agreement isn’t about us. It’s about the baby we all adore. Dom should be a part of this.

Devon: Hey, buddy. How yodoinu man? How you doing? I missed you. Oh.

[ Laughs ] Oh, hey, buddy. Oh. How you doing? I missed you. You know, we’re gonna be able to spend a lot more time together and have more chances to get to know each other. And I have some big news for you, too. You know that name of yours? It’s gonna get a little bit longer because you’re gonna be a winters now, too. That’s right. And your grandpa’s looking down on you smiling.

[ Chuckles ] Buddy. Hey. Your skin isn’t just skin.

“The young and the restless”

will continue. Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Nick: This is such great news. You said the proposal just happened?

Sharon: At society. Tessa had surprised mariah with this whole romantic scene.

Tessa: Yeah, it was perfect. She was in total shock.

Mariah: Kind of like the look on noah’s face right now. I mean, I couldn’t believe when tessa got down on one knee, i mean, that was a big clue, though.

Noah: You went old school. Nice.

Mariah: Yeah, and she had this amazing speech about the obstacles we’ve faced and where we’re going next as a couple. You know, a home, a life, a family.

Sharon: Ohh.

Mariah: Okay, don’t start crying, okay? I’m not crying.

Sharon: I’m not crying, you’re crying.

Mariah: I’m not crying.

Nick: I think you’re both crying.

Mariah: Okay, we’re allowed.

Tessa: Well, and then I gave mariah the ring and she told me some beautiful things back. She called me her angel, for last summer, being each other’s heart and home. I’m gonna remember and cherish everything you said to me forever.

Michael: Uh…that is a very generous offer, victor. If you’re trying to dazzle me, it’s working.

Victor: I expect you to earn every dime of it.

Michael: As long as we keep a very strong boundary around the time commitment. You can’t expect me to make this job my life, and I refuse to respond to your calls at all hours of the night. I can’t emphasize that enough.

Victor: I have the same concern now that I’ve assumed an expanded role at newman media.

Michael: Alright. Good. I’m glad we’re on the same wavelength.

Victor: So it won’t be an issue, alright? I promise.

Michael: Well, if you promise…

Victor: No crossed fingers behind my back.

Michael: Good. Well, I have to wait to see how that part plays out before i believe it, and I also need to officially resign as district attorney.

Victor: Well, I understand, but, I mean, I see no reason why you couldn’t begin to work for me unofficially.

Ashland: And I have seen you in action. And when you want something, look out, world.

Victoria: I want newman media.

Ashland: Well, the question is how best to go about getting it.

Victoria: I think we need a new strategy. Trying to drive a wedge between adam and my dad is not gonna work — for all of the reasons that he threw in my face. Our father is way too unpredictable.

Ashland: But it did have a destabilizing effect. It put your brother on the defensive. It was a good opening gambit.

Victoria: One that we can build on. The key is making my dad believe this was all his idea.

Ashland: Instead of pitting father against son, we go back to the original idea. Make adam fail.

Devon: Who is this guy, huh?

[ Chuckles ] Who is he? There you go. Guys, I really can’t say thank you enough for the choice that you made and for handling everything the way you did.

Chance: Of course, man. I want to thank you, as well, for seeing the bigger picture here. I guess we’ll be talking to you soon.

Devon: Yeah.

Abby: Definitely.

Chance: Y’all take care.

Devon: You too.

Christine: I’ll be in touch.

Amanda: I do have a few preliminary stipulations. I’ll send them right over.

Christine: Sounds good.

Amanda: Okay.

Abby: Devon.

Devon: Yeah?

Abby: You are a great friend and a wonderful parent, and I’m sorry that I lost sight of that. I swear it’ll never happen again.

Devon: Okay. Love you guys.

Amanda: Have a good day.

Chance: See ya. And thank you again, christine. I mean, we always appreciate your support and guidance.

Christine: I just hope you’re both comfortable with how things ended up.

Abby: We are.

Christine: Okay. We’ll talk soon.

Chance: Hey. Are you sure you’re okay? Or did I just push you to agree to something that you didn’t want? Be ready for whatever life throws your way.

Mariah: Faith squealed so loud when we told her the news, I think she probably freaked out, like, everyone in her vicinity.

Nick: Well, faith has always rooted for you and tessa.

Mariah: Yeah, she wants to help us plan the wedding, but now I’m thinking that she might get a little obsessive with it. Maybe this is not a good idea.

[ Laughs ]

Sharon: Might not be a bad thing. I mean, no offense, but organization’s never been your strong suit.

Mariah: Wow.

Noah: I’m gonna go get some coffee. Anyone want some?

Mariah: Yeah, I’ll take some.

Nick: Yeah, sounds good.

Noah: I’ll bring the pot over.

Sharon: Oh, I just forgot something. I’ll be right back.

Nick: I just, you know, look at you about to start this big adventure. I just can’t stop thinking about, um…

Mariah: Yeah, cassie. I know. All the what-ifs.

Nick: I’m proud of you.

Tessa: Need some help?

Noah: Uh, no, I got it. I’m really happy for you guys. I don’t think I’ve seen two people more in love.

Tessa: Well, I just want to see you happy.

Noah: Oh, I’m so happy it’s almost nauseating. No, seriously, I mean, I left a place that was sucking my soul dry, and now I get to something I’m actually happy about with my dad.

Tessa: Really? What are you doing?

Noah: He offered me a full-time job over at new hope, so now I have time for painting and photography. So what’s not to be happy about?

Tessa: Oh, I mean, that all sounds amazing. I’m — I’m really happy that everything’s falling into place for you.

Mariah: Hi.

Tessa: Hi.

Sharon: Oh, no. Looks like noah’s fallen in love with tessa again.

Chance: Abby, all of this is happening because of what’s going on with me, how I’ve been struggling since i got back, how I’ve been questioning myself as a father. The last thing that I want is for this to put a wall between us. I really don’t want that.

Abby: No, it won’T. I don’t want you thinking that way. I’m just — I’m so thankful that you finally opened up to me. I love you more now than ever.

Chance: I love you, too. I love you so much. And I’m so grateful that you understand where I’m coming from and that you accepted devon to take on this role. I think it’s what’s best for everyone involved. I really do.

Abby: I know you do.

Chance: Hey. I know you. And as brave and as strong as you’ve been, I know this is not how you envisioned our family. And I know you’re still coming to terms with it and I know you’re still dealing with all these feelings. But you stood by me and you fought for me. You fought for our family, most importantly. And I promise you, I’m gonna do the same. Okay? This decision, it does not change the fact that we are still a family.

Devon: Oh, man.

[ Sighs ] That really just happen?

Amanda: That is the third time that you asked me that, and, yes, it really, really did.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] I was just so convinced that my friendship with abby was over and we were gonna have to go to court.

Amanda: Well, you made it clear from the beginning that this was solely about dominic’s welfare. And you came from a place of love and compassion. It just took them a while to see what I already knew. You are gonna bring so much to that little boy’s life.

Devon: Well, that’s — it’s crazy to think about. I mean, my son’s gonna be living here. I know it’s just for one day out of the week, but I’m gonna be able to know him as a real parent. And he’s gonna carry my dad’s name.

Amanda: I can see how happy this makes you, which makes me want to finish all this paperwork and file it as soon as possible.

Devon: Why do you say that? Are you worried they’re gonna change their minds? How did olay top expensive creams?

Michael: You were very certain that I would accept your offer.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] How long have I known you? I know you well enough to realize that you won’t be happy sitting on a porch in a rocking chair watching the sun go down.

Michael: I enjoy watching the sun go down with my wife very much.

Victor: You know what I mean.

Michael: And you know what i mean.

Victor: I will make certain that I will ease you into your new responsibilities, alright?

Michael: I’m eager to hear what you have in mind.

Victor: Well, be very interesting, let me put it that way.

Victoria: Step one — we sue for the name newman media. Well, now that we’ve acquired chanccomm, which includes newman enterprises’ original media division, we claim that there should be no newman entity that is not under the newman/locke umbrella.

Ashland: Well, victor and adam will say it’s outrageous, it’s unsupportable.

Victoria: So let them.

Ashland: I suppose that’s why we maintain the stable of the most cutthroat attorneys.

Victoria: Exactly. The suit will cause them so many headaches, tie up all of their lawyers, and hopefully distract adam while we hit them with step two.

Ashland: Which is?

Tessa: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Falling in love with her might be a little extreme, but he did tell me that he’s been spending so much time with tessa that it’s brought back some old feelings.

Sharon: Oh, poor kid. He left town because of her and then he got his heart broken in london, and now seems like it might be happening all over again.

Nick: Our son’s resilient. He is focused on making some changes in his life.

Noah: I got to go.

Mariah: Oh.

Noah: Bye, guys.

Tessa: See ya.

Nick: I think this new job is gonna be great for him.

Abby: Well, I won’t deny that this has been difficult, feeling like my family’s being torn apart. Some court battle. But I was telling the truth when I said I think you’re right, i think this is what’s best for dominic. For devon to play a bigger role in his life.

Chance: I’m so glad to hear that.

Abby: But this is still fresh and it’s challenging, and I promise I’ll do whatever it takes to embrace this new normal, and I will help you get your emotional footing, so we can be the family that we were meant to be.

Chance: I want that, too, and I promise you, I’m gonna do whatever it takes to give you that.

Abby: Yeah.

Amanda: Relax. I do not think that anything is gonna go wrong. I’m just doing my cautious attorney thing and covering all of my bases, but leave that all to me, okay?

Devon: Yeah, gladly.

Amanda: Now I’m gonna be your girlfriend and I’m gonna tell you that you can revel in this wonderful turn of events.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] I just can’t wait to bring my son back home. You know, it’S… my man. He’s gonna have your name, too, so he can carry on your legacy.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Ashland: Well, you certainly live up to your reputation.

Michael: You haven’t been around here long enough to know much about me.

Ashland: You’d be surprised.

Devon: So, since becoming an official member of the family, i asked if that could be reflected in his name.

Abby: What’s wrong?

Victor: Acquiring newman media, that would create a formidable company, you know? It would make newman/locke the powerhouse in the media business.

Adam: But the question is, what would it mean for me?

Transcript provided by Suzanne


 Hello, friend. Oh, curtis. I didn’t know you were going to be here. Yeah, kevin called and explained that he had a patient emergency. Yes, yes, he did, and we talked about it and I’m fine with it. I don’t doubt. But I know memorials can be hard, so I just wanted you to know that, uh… you know, I’ll be here for you, assuming you don’t object. Oh, no, not at all. I mean, I’m fine to do this solo, but, um… I’d much rather do it with a friend at my side. Hey. Hey. Phyllis and I, we’re gonna have a-a shot in memory of luke. You want to join us? Uh, no. I’m good, thanks. You sure? Yeah. What are you — you keeping tabs on me, or what? No, I saw frank outside. Figured you were in here. Look, I know how important luke was to you. He was important to me, too. He was lulu’s dad. Ahh. You know what? Um… I know you can’t be with lulu because she’s in a coma, but I can be with carly, so I think we should be together when we…say goodbye to her uncle luke. Hi, honey. Oh, look at you. I just couldn’t do it. I couldn’t bring myself to wear black. Oh. Luke would hate that. He would. Thanks for meeting me ’cause I don’t think I could — I couldn’t get through this memorial without you by my side. I was just sitting here thinking about uncle luke, and, um… …how he always called me “caroline.” He insisted on it, and not because he was trying to make fun of me. It was a reminder that he knew exactly who I am, and to never forget where I came from. I’m sorry. My gosh, it’s — you know, how are you? Luke was your big brother. Well, I’m a little wobbly. But just like when aunt ruby died, we will get through this together. That’s right. I hate that lucas has to work. He should be here. You named him after luke. Yeah, well, I think your brother hasn’t quite gotten over losing wiley, and I think working is easier for him than facing his family. Yeah, but we need him, too. You know I need you by my side. But something tells me that my bright, beautiful, incredibly brave daughter might need me even more. More than you know, mom. More than you know. Laura, hello. Felicia, anna, hi. Hi. Thank you, sweetheart. Thank you, thank you. Anna: Oh, this is lovely. Lovely setup, laura. It’s very — very luke. Ah, you should really be saying that to tracy quartermaine. This is her event. I’m just here to pay my respects and to see my friends. Okay. I keep half expecting luke to just show up. You know?

[ Chuckles ] The man was a legend. Yes. In so many ways. Well, thank you both for coming. Please, help yourself to a drink. I don’t know where tracy is right now. Okay. Thank you. Mm-hmm. Okay, sounds good. Hey, mother. How are you? I’m better now that you’re here. I was so sorry to hear about luke. Thank you, ava. Have you talked to lucky and ethan? Are they gonna make it? Unfortunately, they’re not. There was an outbreak of cholera in the village where lucky is volunteering, so for him to come home, he would have to quarantine in africa for two weeks. But tracy is having another memorial in amsterdam in a few weeks, so actually, ethan and lucky will both be at that. That’ll be nice for lucky and ethan to have each other, just like I’m here for you now. Thank you, sweetheart. Hello, grandmother. Spencer. How are you? Oh, I’m happy to see you. Esme sends her sympathies. She’s interning at spring ridge tonight, but I’m here for you. Thank you so much. Well said, spencer. Tonight, we are indeed all one family, despite our differences. Oh, luke. In life, he always cast a-a large shadow. To die in such a random accident just doesn’t have the sense of poetic beauty one would have expected of him. Get out of here, victor. And take your burly doberman with. Oh, johann isn’t here only for me. He’s here for all of us. Luke may be dead, but he has a long list of enemies, and they are all still very much alive. Tracy? Is that what I think it is? Yeah. Luke. I know you want to be with carly. And I know it’s hard, but she has asked for space. You — you have to respect that. Carly moved out. How much time does she need? Luke is her uncle, my old-time friend, and you know what? We should be together. We lost, what, almost a year of our lives? We can’t get that time back. What do you think luke would do to just have a couple seconds of that time back? I’m not wasting any more time.

Tracy, are you okay? Would you like me to call ned?

[ Scoffs ] You don’t think I’m capable of calling my son myself? And why wouldn’t I be okay? I’m holding luke in a jar. Everything is peachy keen in my life. I’ll see you inside. Wait. Alexis, I’m sorry. I — I didn’t mean to snap at you. You’re having a hard time. I understand. Do you? Because I wouldn’T. Not after what I did to you. You know you don’t belong here, victor. And luke would be the first to tell you that, so get out. Alas, luke is silent and likely to remain so. I’m sure mac would be happy to send a patrol car over to have you removed from the boat. Calling the police commissioner? Isn’t that a bit of an overreach? Not when it’s my husband. Curtis: Ask yourself, victor, do you really want to escalate? The time to tap out is before things get broken. Uncle victor, a gentleman shouldn’t stay when he’s been asked to leave. Oh, spencer. You are so right. Johann, we’re leaving. Oh, uh… do give luke my best. Hopefully, you can tell him yourself, in person. The sooner, the better.

[ Chuckles ] You know, so much of my history with luke, it’s so dark. You know our story. Our dad was an alcoholic, beat my mother. And then when mama died, luke and I, we just took off. We went to florida to be with dad’s sister, aunt ruby. Oh, I loved that woman. She did the best she could. But honestly, luke and I raised each other as much as she did. And then when I came back to port charles and luke followed me — you know, it was like a second chance for us to make something of ourselves. And you did it. A nursing degree, a career, a family. You should be so proud of yourself. I’m extremely proud of you, mom. Thank you, honey. But if I managed to survive, maybe even thrive here, it was because I always knew that my big brother had my back. You know, I was the one who recruited luke to come back to port charles. Now, granted, my plan to break up scotty and laura so I could have scotty all to myself…

[ Laughs ] …Wasn’t exactly noble, but I called luke to come and help me and he came running, just like he always did. And I don’t know what I’m gonna do next time I need luke’s help. Hey. You’re gonna call me. Look at me. You’re gonna call me or lucas or josslyn or michael, and we’re gonna come running. Okay. That’s a two-way street, you know? I know. And I got the rest of my life to grieve for my big brother. Meanwhile…my daughter is living in a hotel, trying to figure out how to save her marriage. Carly, talk to me. Well, that’s the thing, mom. I don’t know if there’s a marriage left to save. You may have lost time while you were in nixon falls, but you were not alone. Nina is not the problem. She is to carly. Why? She — come o– you’ve got to see that. You’ve got to see that. She’s got to know that it’s over between you and nina, and the fact that you got on that witness stand and said that you weren’t a victim, that doesn’t help things. It is over for me and nina. Okay. What do I have to do to prove to carly so she can give me a chance? Scott, what are we doing here? We left the courthouse and the idea was to go to the haunted star for luke’s memorial. Yeah, well, you know what? You got an invitation. I’m gonna have to crash that thing, so I’m gonna need a couple of cocktails to do that. And if anybody’s boohooing over luke, I won’t care. Look, if you ever loved laura, I strongly advise against it. Yeah, I know you hated the guy, and you probably had your reasons, but come on, let’s just go. You know, if life was a horse race, it’d be neck and neck as to who I hate more — luke spencer or sonny corinthos. Well, guess what. You win by a photo finish.

I don’t know I-if you know or not, but I own this bar, and nobody comes in here and insults luke spencer. Hey, uh, robert, I got an idea. Why don’t you take scott here to the memorial? Hey, that’s sounds good to me. Come on, bud. Let’s go. I’m not going anywhere until I have a couple of drinks, so why don’t you take daddy here and vamoose?

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Go ahead. You go ahead and go without me.

[ Chuckles ] Hey. Yeah? You sure about that? Yeah, you — uh, laura — you should be with laura. I know. I want to be there for laura, but hey, hey. Remember, this is about luke, okay? Yeah. Yeah. You know what, phyllis? Why don’t you give these two… gentlemen, uh, whatever they want to drink, on my tab. I don’t think so. We buy our own drinks. You thought you scored a touchdown at the hearing for nina, didn’t you? Come on, scott, don’T. Let’s — let’s go. Let’s go to the metro court. I’ll, uh — I’ll buy the drinks, eh? You know, I-I kind of feel bad for carly, you know? But if — if somebody asked me if it made my day that you got caught stepping out on your wife… don’t put your finger on me….you know what I’d say? I’d say that’s a big fat “yes.” And what are you gonna do? I said, don’t put your finger on me like that.What are you gonna do? What are you gonna do? What am I gonna do? What are you gonna do? Come on. Are you and sonny really at a point of no return? I don’t know. I don’t know. I-I mean, the man who disappeared over a year ago is not the man who came back to me. Well, losing his memory and — and living as another man was bound to change sonny. I get that, mom. I do, but in the past, even after sonny and i would have a knock-down, drag-out fight, I never doubted that sonny loved me. And now you do? Yeah. I mean, sonny refuses to acknowledge that what nina did to us was awful. He refuses to acknowledge the damage and the hell she put me and my family through for her own selfish reasons. Sonny claims that I come first in his life, and I told him the way he could prove that to me was to kick nina to the curb. And he won’t do it. I don’t know. Maybe he can’t do it. And that’s a deal breaker for me. I mean, if sonny can’t put me and my family first, then all of his promises mean nothing. With victor mercifully gone, we can focus on the celebration of luke’s life. Yes. You really are shameless. You’ll use anything, even luke’s death, to try to make yourself out to be the good guy. Spencer, can we drop this, please, for one night? Laura, I’m gonna do you a favor and I’m gonna take these two guys out of here. I don’t want to go anywhere with him. Let’s go. Let’s go. Too bad. Are you okay? Honestly, I — I could use some fresh air. Well, luckily we’re on a boat, a boat with several decks to choose from. Let’s go. Mm. I feel like, uh, luke would have enjoyed all this chaos. Oh, yes. 100%. The only thing he would have loved more is if somebody would have punched victor cassadine in his smug face. Ooh, I was so close. I really just…

[ Chuckles ] Robert: Okay, look. Emotions are running rather high at the moment. Let’s all go to our respective corners. He’s right. Aren’t you all honoring someone’s memory tonight? You know what, phyllis? You’re absolutely right. In memory of luke, I’m gonna teach scotty a lesson. Alright, then shut up and fight. Is there a problem here, mr. Corinthos? Oh, oh. There it is. Same old story. The stooge does all the fighting for you, chicken. Back off. It’s about time I teach this guy a lesson. Hey, hey. Hey, you two, now listen. I am the D.A. Yeah? You don’t want to be doing this in front of me. Then get lost. Phyllis: Sonny. I’m asking you as my friend, please stop this now. Oh, wow. Look what we’ve just walked into. Oh, man. The cassadines. Just what we need. It’s the mob boss vs. The ambulance chaser. Oh, it’s too bad luke spencer isn’t here. He was just crass enough to enjoy this kind of thing. Who are you calling crass? Who are you calling an ambulance chaser? Hey, baldwin. What do you say? I think I hate him more than I hate you. I’m in. Alright, it’s time you two were taught a lesson. Gentlemen, stop it now!

Guys! Guys! Sonny corinthos!

[ Grunts ] Better? Definitely. Life sure has a lot of twists and turns, doesn’t it? Oh. Tell me about it. You know, luke and I were quite a team. He was a part of me, and I was a part of him. Must have been hard to let him go. Oh, well, he’s been gone for a long time. You know, not all at once. It was in stages. First we got separated, then we got divorced, and then he fell in love with tracy. And then I met kevin, thank god.

[ Sighs ] I mostly feel sad about the grandkids, you know? The only way they’ll know luke is from pictures and stories. And some of those stories will be true. Get in there, both of you. You know, I resent being treated like a wayward adolescent.

[ Sighs ] They don’t act like one, okay? You don’t get to tell me what to do, ava. Enough! Can you please, both of you, just set aside your differences for one night and think about somebody else?! You’re right. I should be focused on my mother, not me. With all due respect to grandmother’s loss, luke spencer was a grifter. He was a glorified con man. Luke spencer came from nothing and he made something of himself. People loved him, respected him, admired him. You came from everything. You have everything handed to you on a silver platter, and you throw it all away! Hey, where is everybody? Did I miss it? Oh, no. People just needed some time alone. They’re just walking around the boat. The memorial will start soon. Oh, okay. Good. And since we’re all here to remember luke, we should expect the unexpected, I think. Mm-hmm.[ Glass shatters ] What is that? I don’t know. Look, alexis, I know that if you had chosen to testify against me, I would be headed to trial and, quite possibly, to a stay at pentonville. And because you didn’t, I’m a free woman, and I get to come here and bid farewell. I did what I did for luke, because I know that he was better off with you than without you. I also did it for me, and I did it for you, because everyone deserves a second chance. Thank you. You’re welcome. Now, how about we go in there and get the party started? Oh, god. How do I sum up a life as complicated as luke’s? You can’T. But if you don’t do it, someone else will. I understand that lucy may be making an appearance, and she has a 42-page speech prepared. Oh, god. What are we waiting for? You want some?! Come on! Are you happy now? Yeah. I’m — I’m — I definitely feel better, yeah. Scott: So do I. So do I. Yeah, well… that’s what I get for trying to mediate. You got a hell of a right cross there, sonny. All the years of boxing. You did pretty good yourself. Yeah, thanks. Which one of you is gonna pay for the damages? Phyllis, I own the bar. I’ll make up the cost. No, no, no. I got this. I insist. I’ll pay for everything. No, you’re not, cassadine. I’ll pay. Oh, really? I heard you were as tight as a bad oyster with your money. Hey, everyone. Have we all forgotten there’s a memorial to attend? Frank? Let’s go. Hey, johann. Nice work. Looks like all those hours at the gym are paying off. You got a nice, fat bonus coming to you. Sonny: Look at victor laughing. I should have smacked him when I was — I’m gonna smack him right now. Hey! Enough. Carly is waiting. Yeah, carly’s waiting. Can’t disappoint carly. Never.

I wonder if we’ve missed something. Tracy, there you are. Hope I didn’t keep anybody waiting. Well, I guess we should get started. C-can — can you wait a minute? Why? Is someone trying to send us a message? Who brought in the giant tv? I don’t know. I didn’t order it. Well, it’s just, we heard a crash, and when we went to investigate, there was an envelope, and inside it was this flash drive along with a note. And all it said was, “play me.” Maybe lucky sent a video message from africa? He didn’t mention anything about that to me on the phone. Besides, he’s in a very rural area. I don’t think so. My money’s on luke. He always did want to have the last word. Yeah. I wonder if he had an inkling that this day was going to come sooner rather than later. So what do you want to do, tracy? This is your event. Well, if it’s from luke, I want to hear it.

Well [Chuckles]

We meet again. Oh, my god. Helena. Hey, robert. Do I look presentable? Uh, why would you start today?

[ Sonny chuckles ] Um, let’s go on board

the haunted star. You know what? Uh, I’m gonna wait for carly. Okay. Baldwin, you in? No, I don’t think so. I was at the luke and laura wedding. Yeah, I remember. Yeah, I caught that bouquet and got a black eye then, too.

[ Sighs ] See you on board. Alright.

D-did I surprise you all?

[ Chuckles ] It’s just like my grandmother to upstage a man at his own memorial.

If you are seeing me now,

it’s because I went first,

and luke spencer has finally

done the world a favor

by following me

into the great beyond. God, I hate that woman. Mm.

Oh, you’ll pardon me

if I gloat,

but I always told luke that

I would have the last word.

[ Chuckles ]

And now…

I am going to have it. Here she goes.

I always considered

luke a parvenu.

And since I’m sure

that none of you there

is familiar with that word,

let me explain.

A par-ven-u

is someone who has suddenly

reached a level of

unaccustomed power and wealth,

but has not yet gained

the prestige and dignity

associated with it.

[ Scoffs ]

Luke was a

cheap, tawdry rhinestone,

even though he fancied himself

a diamond in the rough.

Oh, the truth is,

luke spencer was always

destined to lose in the end.

But — thank you. Oh. I don’t know about the rest of you, but I have heard enough out of that woman to last me a lifetime. Hear, hear. Yeah. Thank you. Carly,

let’s go.We’re already late. Why don’t you go ahead in? I-I’ll meet you in there. Are you sure? I’m sure, yeah. It’s okay. Okay. Um, I know I’m not your mother’s favorite person at the moment, but you’re here. I’m here. That’s all that matters, so… why don’t we go say goodbye to your uncle and my friend? Why don’t you go get in the car? Are you ready? What the hell happened to your hand? Luke happened.

You’re gonna have to go to G.H. After luke’s memorial and make sure you didn’t break any bones in your hand. No, it’s fine. It’s fine. I mean, you know what? The night wasn’t a total loss. Do you know why? Why? Believe it or not, scotty and I teamed up and ripped victor a new one. But let’s forget about that. We’re here for luke. Thank you all for coming to honor a man that we all loved. Well, I guess some of us loved him, and… some of us maybe hated him. But I — I bet that

[Clears throat] Most of us probably did both. And it doesn’t matter what we thought of him, the truth is that… …we’re never gonna forget him. So, a bit of business. Um, luke made me promise if this day ever came, that nobody… would call him a hero, or even a good guy, for that matter. No danger of that. So he was just luke — a walking, talking contradiction. He was cruel, and then he would turn around and dazzle you with his kindness. He was cunning, and yet caring. He was generous at the same time as impossibly, impossibly selfish. He brought out the best and the worst in all of us. And I think, ultimately, I think he changed us, every one of us… …forever.

Ahh. Well, luke, I hope you’re enjoying yourself over there at your beloved haunted star. All the people singing your praise, including my wife that you stole from me 40 years ago. Eh.

[ Groans ] But, spencer, you’re dead and gone. I’m still standing. So you lose, you son of a bitch. Well, luke, I did it. I got through the speech. I think they appreciated it. Now it’s just you and me. I have no words. Well, so long, luke spencer. What… oh. [ Sighs ] Hey, laura? Hi. I know it’s not the right time, but I, uh — I got some, uh — I got an update on the warning that cyrus gave you. Okay, we’ll talk later. Alright. Honey? Are you sure you don’t want to join us? Oh, avery and donna have really been looking forward to their sleepover with you. I don’t want to crash the party. Okay. It’ll be lovely to be surrounded by all of that youth and joy. And maybe I won’t miss my big brother so much. I’m gonna go. Yeah.

[ Sighs ] Curtis, thank you so much for coming. I could hang out a little longer, if you’d like. No, you’ve got a club to run, and I have a life to get on with. I just want you to know that I’m here whenever you need me. Thank you. I know you are. Well, this was a fitting send-off for luke, don’t you think? I mean, the man was a rogue and a rascal. You know I do have a soft spot for rascals. I can’t stop thinking about the way victor left. I mean, he was so angry, even hurt. And you know what they say — a wounded tiger’s twice as dangerous. Sonny and scott fought on the same side? Who would have ever thought?

[ Chuckles ] Well, I guess they hated victor cassadine more than they hated each other. Good point. Up she goes! Well, if you won’t let me pay for the damage, at least let me offer you a more conventional transaction. Give me a bottle of your top-shelf napoleon brandy, please. Oh, and, uh, a couple of glasses. That’ll be $55. Mm-hmm. There we go. $100. Keep the change. Part of my apology. Well, here’s to you, luke spencer, champion of port charles. I should just tell you, the good people of your fair city are in for a big surprise. Cheers. Hey, scotty. Whoa. What happened to you? I caught the bouquet. I can’t believe I’m saying this, but do you need a ride home?

[ Chuckles ] I can be the designated driver. I deserved that. Uh, actually, there’s one thing I have to do first. Laura? Tracy. Very, very moving speech. Um, I have something that… was a keepsake of luke’s that I think really belongs to you. If that’s the ice princess, I want no part of that thing.

The ice princess? The actual cassadine diamond? That thing has never done anyone any good. Please throw it in the sea when you scatter luke’s ashes. Yeah, I can’t do that. Hey, are you disappointed? I wouldn’t mind seeing it. Maybe holding it, just once. No. Trust me, that thing never did anybody any good. I won’t argue with you, grandmother, not tonight of all nights. Thank you for being here tonight. I know that you would rather be with your friends, but — no, of course. I-I wanted to be here for you. I knew that tonight was going to be difficult for you. Once all of this bad stuff is over, I hope that I can make you proud of me. I’m proud of you now. Oh, boy. Let’s go home, okay? Goodbye, my love. Jennifer smith?

[ Sighs ] Luke… are you out there? Be ready for whatever life throws your way.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Abigail: Sarah? Thank god I caught you. We need to talk.

Ava as sarah: Abigail, I’m– I’m so sorry, but if I don’t leave right now I’m gonna miss my flight–

Abigail: Well, just answer one question.

Ava as sarah: What is it?

Abigail: You’re not really sarah, are you?

Ava as sarah: I beg your pardon?

Abigail: You heard me. You’re not my cousin, sarah horton. You’re kristen dimera.

[Suspenseful music]

[Phone ringing]

Kristen: Huh. Sorry, sweetness. Steve can’t come to the phone right now.

Kayla: Steve, call me back as soon as you get this. No, no, no. No, better yet, why don’t you get here. I’m in the reverend mother’s office but she could come back at any minute. I think if we want to find anything on kristen, it’s gonna take two of us.

Chloe: Hey, dad. It’s me again. Why haven’t you called me back? Mom is here and she’s a wreck. She’s convinced that you’re having an affair and I can’t talk her out of it, so we need to fix this now. Please call me.


Craig: Why call when I can come in person?

Chloe: Daddy.

Craig: Better late than never, huh? Mm. Mm.

Gabi: Johnny, I haven’t been able to stop thinking about our conversation yesterday.

Johnny: When you said we had interests in common?

Gabi: Mm-hmm. Yeah. I wanted to talk to you about what our partnership might look like.

Johnny: You know, I’ve been giving that a lot of thought. And I was thinking that it might look something like this.

Gabi: Uh!

[Panting] Uh!

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]

Chanel: Hey, mama. How’s your ankle?

Paulina: Never mind about that. We need to talk about the other night.

Johnny: You really pack a wallop. Made me bite my cheek. You drew blood.

Gabi: Is this some kind of an act?

Johnny: Oh, come on. I was reading your signals loud and clear.

Gabi: What signals? I am in a loving, committed relationship to your uncle, jake. Do you remember him?

Johnny: To be honest with you, the family tries very hard not to think about him.

Gabi: Ah, well, the family’s making a huge mistake.

Johnny: Teasing. Hey. C’mon, what’s the big deal? You got a boyfriend, jake. A hot second ago, I had a wife. Things change.

Gabi: You’re old enough to drink?

Johnny: Yeah. Can I make you one?

Gabi: No. No, thank you. You may have sabotaged your marriage, but I am in a loving, committed relationship to jake. You got it?

Johnny: Got it. You’re with the grease monkey. Doesn’t mean you can’t have a little fun on the side.

Craig: I got your message, and I booked the first flight out.

Chloe: Oh, I miss you.

Craig: I miss you too, sweetheart.

Chloe: But you have to set mom straight.

Craig: [Laughs] She driving you crazy?

Chloe: Well, yeah, naturally. But I understand. She–she thinks you have some other woman on the side. And I’m trying to tell her she’s being ridiculous, but she won’t listen to me.

Craig: Thank you for your concern. And I’m sorry she dragged you into this.

Chloe: It’s okay, it’s not your fault. I know you’d never cheat on her.

Craig: [Sighs] Well. You know how your mother gets when she gets these things in her head, right?

Chloe: Yeah.

Nancy: It’s all in my head. Is that what you want chloe to believe?

Ava as sarah: You think that I’m kristen? Are you having another one of your episodes?

Abigail: My mental health has never been better, thank you.

Ava as sarah: Okay. I don’t know what’s going on here, but if you’re not sick, then this must be some sort of a mind game that I really don’t have time for, so.

Abigail: It all makes sense.

Ava as sarah: What makes sense?

Abigail: You kidnapped sarah horton, you stuffed her in a suitcase, and then you put on your sarah mask to make all of salem believe she left town of her own free will.

Ava as sarah: Are you just gonna say that with a straight face? Do you even hear how delusional that sounds?

Abigail: You tried to do the same thing to kate. She’s telling everyone who will listen to her that you abducted her, and then you put on a kate mask and you went and you broke up with jake.

Ava as sarah: I would start you on anti-psychotics, but I didn’t bring my prescription pad. So I’ve put up with you for as long as I’m going to.

[Phone ringing] Do you want to answer that? It might be a hot tip that amelia earhart running around in a jimmy hoffa mask.

Abigail: Do not move.

[Sighs] Abigail dimera. Hello? Who’s calling?

Kristen: It’s your sister-in-law, kristen dimera.

[Dramatic music]

It’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.

Brady: Xander, what are you doing here?

Xander: Drinking. Care to join me?

Brady: No, I–I don’t drink. As a matter of fact, I’m here to pick maggie up for an aa meeting.

Xander: Ah. Oh, yeah. Well, I think she’s upstairs. I figured she wouldn’t mind if I helped myself to some of uncle victor’s lovely scotch.

Brady: Okay. Well, I hope someone is giving you a ride home.

Xander: No. I’ll take a taxi. Brady, before you go fetch maggie, can I ask you a question?

Brady: Go for it.

Xander: How do you drown your sorrows?

Brady: What?

Xander: I mean, since you don’t drink.

Brady: Oh. Well, xander to be honest with you, I really don’t drown my sorrows at all anymore. I kind of allow myself to just experience them. I talk to people I trust about them. I vow to make better choices in the future to avoid having more sorrow, and eventually things seem to get better.

Xander: Yeah, well, that’s– that’s the problem right there, brady. I mean, I’m just not as patient as you. For me, eventually just isn’t soon enough for me. God, it sounds like an eternity.

Brady: I’m gonna see if I can find maggie.

Xander: Please tell her that I– you know, I admire her for not drowning her sorrows either, for facing them head on. You know, dealing with adversity with courage and fortitude and not even a drop of barley brew.

Brady: I’ll pass that along to her.

Xander: Bloody, bloody hell!

Brady: What is wrong?

Xander: [Scoffs] Sorry, brad. I hadn’t meant for you to hear that. Look, just– why don’t you just treat me like you normally treat me? Just ignore me or–

[Sighs] Just treat me like somebody you want disappear or just you wish would leave you alone. Trust me, I’ve been getting a big dose of that recently.

Brady: Xander, what– what are you talking about?

Xander: Sarah. The woman I thought was the answer to my prayers, the love of my life, she– she dumped me again.

Abigail: Who is this really?

Kristen: God. It’s me, of course. I understand you’re editing “the spectator” now. Well, I have a story for you.

Abigail: Go on.

Kristen: [Scoffs] Well, so much for gratitude. I could be giving the scoop to “the intruder,” you know.

Abigail: [Huffs] What sort of scoop are we talking about? Keep in mind you are speaking on the record.

Kristen: Fine by me. Here’s the gist. I had nothing to do with the disappearance of philip kiriakis. And I would never, ever frame brady black. He’s the father of my only child. I’m an innocent woman, and you can quote me on that.

Ava as sarah: I could hear who you were talking to. It was kristen, right? The person you keep insisting I am? It seems like somebody needs to brush up on their girl reporter skills. So as I said, I do have a plane to catch.

Abigail: I am not done with you yet.

Chanel: I was scared to death for you, mama, when I heard that that chandelier almost fell right on top of you. You could’ve died.

Paulina: But I didn’T. I just turned my ankle. That’s it. Lani took real good care of me. Baby, it’s you I’m worried about. I haven’t talked to you since the reception.

Chanel: Quite a party, huh? My new husband made a fool of me in front of both of our families.

Paulina: How are you holding up?

Chanel: How do you think?

Paulina: Mm, don’t you worry about that eurotrash little poser. We’re gonna make him pay, you best believe that.

Chanel: What do you have in mind?

Paulina: You just leave everything to me.

Chanel: Okay. Now I’m worried.

Paulina: You didn’t sign a prenup with him, did you?

Chanel: No, it didn’t even come up. Why?

Paulina: I am talking to one of the top divorce lawyers in the country. I hope johnny dimera is ready to be starched and pressed, because we are taking him to the cleaners.

Johnny: Well, I won’t tell if you won’t tell.

Gabi: Down, boy.

Johnny: Come on, gabi. You’re a hot, beautiful, smart woman. Are you really ready to limit your sex life to jake dimera for the rest of your life?

Gabi: I never said I wasn’t attracted to you, johnny.

Johnny: That’s right. You didn’T.

Gabi: But jake and i are committed to each other.

Johnny: Ever heard of an open relationship?

Gabi: [Laughs] That– that isn’t for us. Jake is very traditional.

Johnny: Hm. Well, I can think of a couple traditions I wouldn’t mind starting with you.

Allie: You two? Seriously?

To be a thriver with

metastatic breast cancer

Johnny: Hey, sis. Nobody told me you were stopping by.

Allie: No kidding.

Gabi: Johnny and i were just–

Johnny: Discussing the company’s quarterly report.

Allie: Mm. Must’ve been kind of hard to talk with his tongue down your throat. And since when do you give a rat’s ass about the family’s company?

Johnny: Well, since my dad signed his shares in it over to me.

Allie: Are you making that up?

Johnny: No.

Allie: So much for bragging about never turning corporate.

Johnny: Well, I realized it was time for me to step up, take my rightful place at dimera enterprises.

Allie: Hm. And, um– and you were just coming over to offer your congratulations?

Gabi: I’m gonna head out.

Allie: Good idea.

Johnny: We’ll continue this conversation some other time.

Gabi: Yeah. Allie, I’d really appreciate it if you didn’t go trotting to jake and tell him what you saw.

Allie: Trust me, you and jake are way down my list of priorities.

Johnny: What’s your problem?

Allie: My problem is that my brother is even more of a disgusting jerk than I thought.

Chanel: I don’t want you to go after johnny’s money.

Paulina: Why not?

Chanel: Because I’m a strong, independent woman, just like my mama.

Paulina: But–

Chanel: But nothing! Forget about johnny and his twisted family’s fortune.

Paulina: Okay. For now.

Chanel: I should’ve listened to horton when she tried to warn me about her brother. And I wouldn’t be in this mess now.

Paulina: Hm. I’m glad that you two– you two girls are such good friends. I saw the way allie ran after you when you left the reception.

Chanel: Yeah. Horton’s the best.

Paulina: I take it she was able to make you feel better?

Chanel: I– I wouldn’t have been able to get through that night without her.

Paulina: I already knew that.

Chanel: You did?

Paulina: I saw the two of you in bed.

Craig: What do I have to say to convince you there is no other woman?

Nancy: Well, you have to say, “I’m not having an affair, nancy,” and mean it. But you can’t, can you?

Craig: For the love of god.

Chloe: Guys, I’m getting a real dysfunctional family vibe–

Craig: You know, I can’t believe you brought her into this.

Nancy: She’s a grown woman. She has every right to know that her father is a lying, cheating womanizer.

Craig: Okay, that’s it. I give up!

Ava as sarah: How can I be kristen when you just hung up the phone with her?

Abigail: It was a phone call, not a video chat. If you can put on a mask and pretend to be sarah, I’m sure you can get a voice double for a phone call.

Ava as sarah: That’s really reaching, don’t you think?

Abigail: Who else would have a motive to come to town dressed as sarah just in order to break up with xander all over again?

Kayla: This should work. Why would a mother superior need to lock her drawer?

Kristen: Her cigarettes, maybe. Well, there’s no need for you to commit a mortal sin, sister. ‘Cause your search is over.

Kristen: Well, look at you. Huh? Oh, you seem to have found a true vocation. And here I thought you and steve were a love affair for the ages. Mm? I mean, are you really gonna give all that one-eyed passion to become a bride of christ?

Kayla: You can just save all the little peppy patter. You and I both know I’m no nun. I’m helping steve look for you.

Kristen: Oh. Why is that? Is it bring your wife to work day?

Kayla: Because I wasn’t gonna let him come and find you alone. And he thought that you would be hiding out here.

Kristen: [Chuckles] Why?

Kayla: Because it’s what you did before.

Kristen: Oh, gosh. I mean, I hate being predictable. But I am afraid that steve will not be able to bring me in this time.

Kayla: Where is he?

Kristen: You know the old saying–

[Laughs] “Curiosity killed the patch?”

Xander: She called me a creep, a neanderthal, and made it very clear to me, again, that she is absolutely done with me, wants nothing to do with me. And the only feeling that she has for me is disgust.

Brady: That sounds pretty brutal.

Xander: You know, I think I had it coming. I’ve hardly led an exemplary life, as well you know, brady. I’m a– I’m just a terrible person. I think maybe sarah finally realized that.

Brady: Xander, I know how much you loved her. And I know how devoted sarah was to you. Maggie would go on and on about it. She was really rooting for the two of you.

Xander: So you don’t think I got what I deserve?

Brady: Actually, in this case, I don’T. ‘Cause I think your feelings for her were genuine. And I know how much you wanted to marry her.

Xander: Yeah, but then instead of tying the knot with me, she jumps into bed with her ex, brady, on my wedding day, I mean– and then she turned around and dumped him shortly thereafter. Not that that softens the blow at all.

Brady: I’m sorry. I know better than anyone what it’s like to have a relationship just–

[Scoffs] Blow up in a spectacular fashion.

Xander: You and kristen?

Brady: Yeah. And now, I got steve johnson trying to hunt her down.

Chanel: Look I– I was so messed up after what johnny did. I didn’t want to be alone. And horton was cool enough to hang out with me until I fell asleep.

Paulina: Chanel? Remember when you were a little, bitty girl? What did I always say when you were scared to tell me something you thought might get you into trouble?

Chanel: That I could always tell you the truth.

Paulina: That’s right. I know I haven’t always lived up to that. But it still stands. You can tell me the truth about anything.

Chanel: But I am telling you the truth. Look, all we did was cuddle. I know it might look–

Paulina: Chanel. Chanel. Stop. J–just stop. Now when I say to you that I saw you two together, I mean I saw you together.

Allie: First, you dump chanel, and then I catch you trying to come on to gabi. I mean, what do you suppose will would think about you trying to hook up with arianna’s mom?

Johnny: I don’t know why he’d care. He obviously wasn’t that into her. You on the other hand–

Allie: Johnny, shut your mouth.

Johnny: Were you jealous?

Allie: Shut up!

Johnny: Lighten up. It was a joke.

[Sighs] You want something?

Allie: No. And when did you start knocking back booze in the middle of the day?

Johnny: You could stand to take the edge off too. Believe me.

Allie: Johnny, this isn’t funny.

Johnny: Well, it’s a little funny. You marching in here with your righteous indignation. You’re a joke.

Allie: And you’re a jackass.

Johnny: Mm. Always was, always will be– at least in your eyes. Don’t you ever get tired of running around passing judgement on everyone that you meet?

Allie: Thank god chanel is through with you.

Johnny: You warned her I’d hurt her. And you were right. Come on, doesn’t that make your day?

Allie: No. Okay? That’s not what I wanted. I was actually hoping for chanel’s sake that you would be different this time.

Johnny: Sorry.

Allie: No, you’re not. I always knew you were a player, but I’m realizing now that you’re also a soulless creep.

Ava as sarah: For the last time, I came back because I found out that xander was making my mom worried sick about me.

Abigail: But how did you find out? Because nobody knew how to reach sarah.

Ava as sarah: I have my ways.

Abigail: Tell me about ’em.

Ava as sarah: Look, abigail, I know that you want this to be a really big story so you can drive traffic to your newspaper’s website, but the truth is, I broke up with somebody that I shouldn’t have been with in the first place. That’s it. End of story. What do I have to do to convince you?

Gwen: Don’t you think that if sarah just wanted to be found by xander or anyone, she would have just turned up by now?

Abigail: Assuming that she’s able to.

Gwen: Now who sounds paranoid? Why can’t you just let the woman be, abigail? And why can’t you just let me have a tiny bit of happiness at this time in my life?

Abigail: You couldn’t convince me as yourself, so you’re trying to convince me as sarah.

Ava as sarah: What are you babbling about?

Abigail: You’re not kristen.

Ava as sarah: See. Finally.

Abigail: How did you get your hands on the mask, gwen? This is the sound of nature breathing.

Ava as sarah: You’re not gonna let this insanity go, are you? First I’m kristen, now I’m gwen. Who am I gonna be next? Grandma alice coming to get her cut of profits from donut sales?

Abigail: You can deny it all you want, but I’m onto you now. And I got to hand it to you, pretty resourceful.

Ava as sarah: Okay, I’m done with this.

Abigail: Okay, you push past me, and I will make a scene right here in this square that my great-grandparents built. I will say poor sarah’s having a breakdown, she needs to go to the er. You really want to risk that?

Ava as sarah: You’re the one having the breakdown. Wouldn’t be the first time.

Abigail: Who was it that told me to stop looking for sarah, hm? Wasn’t her mother. Wasn’t xander. It was you. You, and I ignored you. And I kept looking anyway. And I’m onto you now, and you know it. And you are so desperate to keep xander that you will do anything. Right, gwen?

Nancy: [Chuckling] Don’t you know, craig, that every cheating husband has used business trips, working late at the office as cover-ups for an affair? And I want to thank you for turning what I thought was a good marriage into a cliché.

Craig: Do you see what I have to deal with?

Nancy: Don’t talk about me like I’m not even in the room!

Chloe: Mom! No one can even talk to you ’cause we can’t get a word in edgewise. And I don’t know if you care, but I– I believe dad.

Nancy: You–you do? Really?

Chloe: Yes, I–I really do. And I know him really well. Wouldn’t you agree?

Nancy: Better than anyone.

Craig: Which is why chloe knows I’m telling you the truth. Nancy wesley, do you not know how much you mean to me? That there is no other woman in the world for me? Mm.

Nancy: [Crying]

Chanel: It–it just happened, mama. Okay? And–and I’m not ashamed.

Paulina: And I don’t want you to be ashamed. But baby, you– you went to bed with a brother and a sister– twins, no less. That’s a dicey situation.

Chanel: Well, you messed around with abe after you knew he’d already been with aunt tamara.

Paulina: Now hold on, baby girl, now, don’t you go getting yourself into grown folks’ business. For the record, there was thirty-odd years between my relationship with abraham and your aunt tamara. You, you hopped into bed with allie on that same night that your husband told you your marriage was over. How long has this been going on?

Chanel: It hasn’t been. Horton’s in love with tripp.

Paulina: Now, you and I both know that is not exactly the case. You and allie, you had a strong connection way before you ever laid eyes on johnny.

Chanel: Maybe. All right, but it never went beyond a couple of kisses.

Paulina: Until it did. Listen, dumpling, I know you believe that it wasn’t planned, but I think you need to take a step back, search your heart. Come to terms with how you feel about johnny and allie. The situation is already complicated enough. Don’t let it get completely out of hand.

Allie: Do you know how much you hurt chanel? She really loved you. She thought you were the one.

Johnny: The one?

[Laughs] Me? Don’t be ridiculous.

Allie: Excuse me?

Johnny: Oh, we both know who has the key to chanel’s heart. And it ain’t me.

Allie: What are you talking about?

Johnny: Well, I’m talking about you, alice caroline horton, my beloved sister. The one who always did like to ride the fence. She sits in judgement on her pious perch as a horton. All while quietly enjoying the fact that her mother married into dimera money. She runs around with her noble do-gooder, tripp johnson, the brother of her dead, rapist baby daddy, because he’s safe.

Allie: Do you enjoy doing this to me?

Johnny: And while tripp is off healing the sick, allie’s playing kissing games with her bff, chanel. And then when chanel up and marries allie’s brother, does that stop allie from lusting after chanel? No, it does not.

Allie: You’re a pig.

Johnny: And you’re a hypocrite. I saw you fly out of here after chanel took off. You couldn’t wait to console her. I bet you consoled her right out of her clothes and into bed, didn’t you?

Ava as sarah: You know, if the journalism thing doesn’t work out, you could try your hand writing those cheap thrillers– the ones that the plot doesn’t make any sense, ’cause that’s what this is.

Abigail: Insult me all you want, gwen. I’m still gonna prove that it’s you underneath that sarah mask.

Gwen: I don’t understand. How–how are you here?

Ava as sarah: Oh, well, I called the front desk and asked for xander cook’s room number. They were really quite accommodating.

Gwen: I–I didn’t– I didn’t mean that. I meant–

Ava as sarah: Oh, you meant how did I get off the desert island that kristen dimera stashed me on when I threatened to tell the cops that she was masquerading as susan banks? Which you already knew. Because that’s what kristen was using to blackmail you into helping her escape.

Gwen: Sarah, I–I–

Ava as sarah: I didn’T.

Gwen: What?

Ava as sarah: Sarah horton is still very much on that island.

Gwen: I–I don’t understand. That doesn’t make sense.

Ava as sarah: Oh, right. Sorry, I forgot.

Gwen: What on earth are you doing?

Ava as sarah: I’m really done with this. Goodbye, abigail. Let go of me!

Abigail: Sure. Right after I take a good look at that mask up close.

Chanel: I love horton as a friend. And I’m physically attracted to her. But I was in love with johnny. Really in love. And I thought he loved me too.

Paulina: Aww. I’m so sorry that monster, he treated you the way he did.

Chanel: I don’t even know that guy who stood up and told our families that we were through. My johnny, he held my hand and he showed me around rome. And one night, we were in this restaurant and some dude was talking in italian about johnny being white and me being black, and not in a good way. You should have seen johnny, mama. He shut that dude up. He didn’t want me to feel bad for one minute. I just–I just don’t even understand what happened.

Paulina: Baby, you’re gonna get through this. You’re gonna get through it. You are. You are. And you’re gonna find the perfect person to spend the rest of your life with.

Chanel: I wish I had your faith.

Paulina: Well, baby, until you do, I have got enough for the both of us.

Chanel: [Crying]

Paulina: Oh, baby. Well, you know, I’m– I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Baby, I hate to leave you. I hate to leave you like this, but I’ve got to– I’ve got to go. I’ve got a follow-up appointment at the hospital.

Chanel: You go. You–you make sure that that ankle is healing right. Even if my broken heart never does.

Allie: I actually hate you.

Johnny: Looks like I struck a nerve.

Allie: No, hate isn’t the right word. I hate the things you do, but really I feel sorry for you. You’re just as delusional as most of the twisted members of your dad’s side of the family.

Johnny: And the horton’s are so together–

Allie: I’m going to try and get this straight to you one last time. I am in love with tripp. And chanel is my best friend.

[Huffs] I thought I could come over here and try and talk to the johnny that I loved when we were kids. Maybe I could ask him why he did what he did to a wife who loved him. I was dumb enough to think that I could come over and talk some sense into you, get you to go over and apologize to her.

Johnny: Well, I’m never going to apologize for what I am. That’s not the dimera way.

Allie: Great, giovanni. Be a good little dimera. Make your crazy father and your precious nonno so proud. But while you do that, keep something in mind. You used to have a twin sister. You don’t anymore. I have one brother, and his name is will. You’re on your own.

Demon johnny: Oh, allie.

[Laughs] You don’t know the half of it.

Xander: You hired steve to track down kristen?

Brady: And bring her to justice, yeah.

Xander: Well, I hope to hell he finds her. I’m sure you know I’ve had my own share of miserable headaches thanks to kristen dimera. You know, honestly, for a while there I suspected that she might have had a hand in sarah’s disappearance.

Brady: I can understand why you’d think that.

Xander: You know, I actually hoped that she was involved for a while. It would have been a lot better for my ego. But no, it turned out that sarah left me of her own free will.

Brady: So what, she– she’s just leaving again?

Xander: Yeah. Bound and determined to get far away from salem and the likes of me. And since just the sight of me repulses her, there’s nothing I can do to stop her, nothing anybody can do.

Kayla: Steve is not dead. You’re just–you’re just trying to throw me off balance.

Kristen: Oh, please.

[Laughing] I have been one step ahead of you this entire time. I was watching when kindly father nichols brought poor, misplaced sister mary elizabeth in here. And see, while you were in here making a pathetic attempt to toss mother superior’s office, I was at your hotel room taking care of steve.

Kayla: Taking care of him? What does that mean?

Kristen: Well, I did what had to be done. Hm. Who do you think disconnected that phone call to him an hour or so ago?

Kayla: You killed him? My asthma felt anything but normal.

[Doorbell rings]

Chanel: Oh, mama must’ve forgotten her keys. Coming. Horton.

Allie: Hey, dupree. We need to talk.

Gabi: Hey, call me back when you get this. I mean it, jake. I have to tell you about this meeting I had with johnny. Apparently he’s more of an operator than I thought.

Johnny: Should my ears be burning?

Craig: Mm. You know what? Why don’t I take the both of you out for dinner and we can celebrate. Hm?

Nancy: Well, it sounds great.

Chloe: Yeah, it does. You know what? There’s a new place in town called the bistro, and it’s pretty good.

Craig: Let’s eat there.

Nancy: It’s a deal.

Craig: Okay.

Nancy: But I want to go back to hotel room and freshen up first.

Craig: Okay, sure. Chloe and I will meet you there in, what, about an hour or so?

Nancy: [Giggles] Again, it’s a deal. And craig, I hate repeating myself, but I’m so happy.

Craig: Bears repeating.

Nancy: Okay, one hour.

Chloe: Love you. See you soon.

Nancy: I love you too.

Craig: Bye, honey.

Chloe: [Sighs] I knew it. I–I knew that you wouldn’t cheat on mom, but she wouldn’t hear it from me. She had to hear it from you.

Craig: Yeah. Mm.


Kayla: You killed him?

Kristen: What are you doing?

Kayla: You killed him? You bitch!

Kristen: Let go of me, you lunatic.

[Gun fires]

[Suspenseful music]

Ava as sarah: Let go of me.

Abigail: Not until I see who’s under that mask.

Ava as sarah: What?

Abigail: It’s all over, gwen. I have figured you out.

Gwen: What in god’s name are you doing, abigail?

[ Dramatic music ]

Hope: Do you know what douglas meant?

Brooke: He saw me kissing santa?

Hope: On new year’s eve. Why would douglas say that? You know, douglas. He doesn’t really lie.

Brooke: No, he doesn’T.

Hope: So what’s going on, mom? What’s douglas talking about?

Brooke: There’s something I need to tell you about that night.

Hope: Okay.

Brooke: After everybody left, your father came back.

[ Steffy laughing ]

Ridge: What’s so funny?

Steffy: Um… just this interview you did talking about your collection. This one. Right here.

Ridge: I know the interview. I didn’t crack any jokes in that. I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Steffy: Oh, it’s not actually the interview. It’s like, uh, you see this? This uh… this photo right here?

Ridge: Yeah?

Steffy: This serious look? It’s like, “look at me. I’m so amazing–”

Ridge: I’m a serious designer. That’s what I do. It’s just–I’m serious thing.

Steffy: It’s a thing? Yeah? So like, the stoic expression? “I’m so extra.”

Ridge: Right? Whoa, whoa, what about– what about when you take pictures. With everything?

Steffy: Excuse me–

Ridge: What is that? What is that?

Steffy: That is different.

Ridge: You just–you think I look like bill. I don’t look like bill at all.

Steffy: Dad! Don’t even say that, dad.

Ridge: What? You brought it up.

Steffy: You just look a little crazy.

Ridge: There’s nothing crazy about it.

Taylor: Wow! Things are rarely this funny in my line of work! Hi.

Ridge: Well, then you need to quit and come over to the fashion business because apparently there’s nothing nniefu

[ Laughter ]

Taylor: No, you know what, I think I will stick to psychiatry but I’ll tell you what, if I ever want a reason just to laugh or smile, I’m going to stop becbyse nothing makes me happier than seeing the two of you work together like this.

Paris: That was unexpected,.

[ Carter chuckling ]

Carter: Was it, though? Don’t know about you but I’ve been feeling like…

Paris: Something’s building? Yeah. I’ve been feeling it, too.

[ Laughter ]

Taylor: I mean it. It is a beautiful thing seeing the two of you working together, enjoying each other.

Steffy: Well, nothing is more beautiful than having you back in L.A.

Ridge: She’s right. Glad you’re here.

Thomas: Wow, look at the party. Can I join?

Taylor: Hi!

Thomas: Hey, mom!

Ridge: It’s not a party, but yeah, you can join ’cause I want to talk to you.

Thomas: Uh-oh.

Ridge: These guys? Exactly what I wanted. Nice job.

Taylor: Hey!

Steffy: Wow, dad’s blessings on a first try? What has the world come to?

Taylor: This! This is what I missed. This is why I am so thankful I’m home.

Hope: Dad came back?

Brooke: He’d forgotten his phone.

Hope: Wow, okay. So this is– this is new information. But first thing’s first: Did dad… did he get you to drink? Because I’ve been hoping that he’s changed. And if he… tried to somehow talk you into it or did something–

Brooke: Honey, no. No.

Hope: Are you sure? Because he obviously did something, something to make you upset and to ask him to not even come around here anymore. So mom, I really– please tell me. What exactly did my father do? How did olay top expensive creams?

Carter: What do we do now?

Paris: Hopefully another kiss.

Carter: Hopefully. But I meant with zende.

Paris: Okay. I–I care about him. A lot. But he knows I’m not ready for a lifelong commitment right now. That we need freedom in our relationship. He gets it. Like right now, he’s out on a date. Good for him. And good for me. I am here with you.

Carter: So we’re letting this happen? Whatever this is?

Paris: I’m not sure. But whatever it is, I like it.

Steffy: Well, I hate to leave the party but I’m going to be late for a meeting with katie.

Ridge: Quick question: Why do we insist on calling this a party? This is our place of work.

Thomas: Okay, mr. Curmudgeon.

Ridge: I don’t mean– yes, things are a little more festive because your mom’s here but it’s still where we create stuff, right? This is our workplace.

Steffy: Yeah, but we– we could have a little party. We could all have dinner tonight if everyone’s available.

Thomas: Sounds good to me.

Taylor: Yeah–

Steffy: Yeah?

Taylor: You know, I have appointments later, but I can try to reschedule. But I can definitely make it by dessert.

Steffy: Okay, great. Dad?

Ridge: Yeah. Oh, no, I would like that idea, too.

Steffy: But…

Ridge: But I got to check my schedule.

Steffy: Okay. Schedule or brooke? You’re that worried about her, you don’t even want to be away from her. Even if it’s just for an evening?

Brooke: No, no. I started drinking on my own. It had nothing to do with your father. He tried to stop me from drinking and uh, the urge was too great. So I asked him to join me.

Hope: Mom.

Brooke: I know. I don’t know what came over me. It’s really embarrassing.

Hope: So you’re asking him to stay away because you were drinking with him. Mom, are you, uh… you aren’t still drinking, are you?

Brooke: No, honey, I swear.

Hope: Okay. Have you been tempted?

Brooke: Maybe a little bit but certainly nothing like that night and I still don’t know where that temptation came from. It’s just so crazy, you know? I’ve had my drinking under control for so long.

Hope: And you will have it under control again because you have a lot of friends and family loving you and supporting you. Especially ridge. Yeah, he’s been there for you. And you can trust that– that we’ll have your back… right?

Brooke: Right.

Hope: It feels like there’s something…more going on and there is, isn’t there?

Brooke: I–well, I guess it’s why you came up here, right? What douglas saw?

Hope: Yeah, he said he saw you kissing santa. Why would he say that? That’s– that’s crazy. You know, seeing, I dunno, you talking to deacon or laughing with him– now, that would make sense, but this? Seeing you kissing… you were kissing my father. Your skin isn’t just skin.

Carter: You sure, you’re okay with this?

Paris: Whatever this is, I’m more than okay. You?

Carter: Do you even have to ask?

Ridge: Don’t want to talk about, brooke. I’ll let you know about dinner.

Steffy: Okay, well, we’d love to have you. I’m gonna head out to that meeting. Thomas, you ready?

Thomas: Huh?

Steffy: The meeting.

Thomas: Yeah, why I would have to go?

Steffy: Because I’m inviting you.

Thomas: Oh, yeah. Marketing meetings. Love that. Lucky…lucky me. Um…all right. Good seeing you guys. Uh, mom, please stop by more. I enjoy the party.

Steffy: Yeah.

Taylor: Okay.

Thomas: Right behind you.

Taylor: Steffy forrester. Queen of subtle. You know, I– I think she was trying to give us a moment alone.

Hope: Is that what douglas really saw? You and my dad kissing? Look, mom, I–I– I want you to tell me the truth. You know I am a safe place and you can be open and honest with me. What exactly happened on new year’s eve?

Brooke: Your father came back to get his phone and when he found it, he was going to leave again.

Hope: But something stopped him.

Brooke: Well, ridge called.

Hope: Ah. Saying that he couldn’t make it home.

Brooke: Right. And that really disappointed me because i thought it was very important for us to spend that time together on new year’s eve. Really have that time to connect. And when I found out he wouldn’t be here, well, I just grabbed that bottle of vodka and I asked your father to join me.

Hope: I just wish that he had stopped you.

Brooke: He tried. I told you that. But I wouldn’t let him stop me. Once I tasted the vodka, I just wanted more. And I was justifying it. You know, saying it was, “new year’s eve, one night out of the year. There’s no harm.” I convinced myself of that and well, I convinced him too. I mean, at first we were having fun. You know, we were just tipsy and joking around and laughing and we found this hat from christmas. And he put it on.

Hope: A santa hat.

Brooke: Yeah, a santa hat.

Hope: So, when douglas came over… he saw you…

Brooke: Deacon and i were just… reminiscing, honey. We were talking about the good old times and…

[ Brooke sighing ] I don’t know, there was A… kind of a closeness, you know? Just, it felt good. And it… I don’T…. well, we…we kissed. Yeah. Yeah. Your father and I kissed.

Entresto is the number

one heart failure

Taylor: I know that you said you didn’t want to talk about brooke and I respect that, but I am a–I’m a very good listener just in case, you know? I’m just saying.

Ridge: Do I need to make an appointment or?

Taylor: For you? Absolutely. Get in line.

Ridge: Well, I appreciate it. Appreciate you. Thanks for coming home.

Taylor: I knew that I missed being here. I just– I didn’t realize how much. Surrounded by family, our children, our grandchildren. I haven’t been this happy in a long time.

Ridge: You deserve it.

Taylor: I do. I have worked hard to get here. Done a lot of self-exploration. A favorite hobby of mine.

Ridge: Oh, I do remember. Yes.

Taylor: I had to ask myself a lot of really tough questions: Why did I stay away so long? Why was I choosing to miss out on so much time with my family? Working halfway across the world when I should have been there for steffy and thomas.

Ridge: Well, you’re here now. And steffy and thomas, you saw them. They’re–they’re thrilled. I’m smiling.

Taylor: Yeah, I see that smile. You have no idea how happy it makes me–

Ridge: All right, I um… I gotta ask you, these questions you had, did you find answers?

[ Taylor exhaling ]

Taylor: Um, yes? It’s complicated. There’s a lot of reasons that I–I stayed away. But the main one was brooke. Knowing that you have made a life with her… I couldn’t help but think what– what–what could have been, you know, if–if, if sheila hadn’t shot me, if we would have been able to stick together after I made my way back home, remained a family, stay married. I knew we’d always love each other. What we shared will always be there. But I couldn’t– I couldn’t stop thinking about what could have been. The memories we could have made. The life we– we almost had. Oh gosh. I–I should pay you for a session. I’m gonna go.

Ridge: Hey, hey.

Hope: Thankfully, douglas didn’t realize who you were actually kissing.

Brooke: I know. It’s bad enough he thinks I was kissing anybody at all.

Hope: Can’t imagine the guilt you’ve been feeling. I’m really glad that you told me, mom. I–I know this couldn’t have been easy on you but given what you’ve been going through, I need you to take it easy on yourself and try to be forgiving because it was a kiss on new year’s eve. You were drunk. And it was between two people who used to be close at a time.

Brooke: Well, that’s not all, sweetheart.

Hope: Wait, what else happened?

Brooke: Oh. No, no, you’re right, it was just a kiss. But deacon slept here that night.

Hope: What?

[ Brooke sighing ]

Brooke: I was drunk. I was beyond drunk and he thought I was going to pass out on the bathroom floor or something. So he took me upstairs and he put me in bed and he tucked me in. And I don’t know. I don’t really remember. I just remember waking up and he’s there, laying there next to me.

Hope: Are you sure nothing happened, mom?

Brooke: Yes, honey. I was under the covers and he was laying on top of them and we were fully dressed.

Hope: What if ridge had come back home?

Brooke: I know. I– I was desperate to get deacon out of there. And try to clean up the mess and the evidence of the night before. Drinking with deacon and him in my–my bed. Oh, my god.

Hope: No wonder you weren’t acting like yourself. Look, I was trying to figure it out. But…

Brooke: How could I do that? How could I risk losing my marriage, the man that I love so much? Really, what was I thinking? I mean, I’m sure that taylor and steffy are on the sideline somewhere, just waiting for something to happen between ridge and me so they can open their arms and welcome their father back into their sweet, little family! He would never accept this, hope. If he knew that deacon was here and we were alone and drinking. And that we kissed? And he was in my bed– oh, my god, my god. I would lose him. I would lose him forever!

Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

“Sarah” walks through the town square with her bags packed. Abigail stops her and says they need to talk. “Sarah” says she’s sorry but she’s going to miss her flight if she doesn’t leave now. Abigail asks her to answer one question as she then asks if she’s not really Sarah. “Sarah” acts confused as Abigail then accuses her of being Kristen DiMera.

Kristen remains in the hotel room in Italy. Steve’s phone rings with a call from Kayla. Kristen ignores it and remarks that Steve can’t come to the phone right now.

Kayla leaves a message for Steve to meet her in the Mother Superior’s office because she thinks if they are going to find anything on Kristen, it’s going to take two of them.

Chloe is at Basic Black, calling her dad and leaving another message questioning why he hasn’t called her back. Chloe says her mom is there and she’s a wreck as she’s convinced he’s having an affair. Chloe says they need to fix this and tells him to call her back. As Chloe hangs up, her father Craig then arrives and asks why call when he can show up in person as they embrace.

Gabi tells Johnny that she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about their conversation about having interests in common, so she wanted to talk to him about what their partnership might look like. Johnny responds that he’s been giving that a lot of thought and says he was thinking it might look something like this, as Johnny then grabs Gabi and kisses her. Gabi pushes Johnny off and slaps him.

Chanel goes home and asks Paulina how her ankle is. Paulina says nevermind that, they need to talk about the other night.

Johnny comments on Gabi’s slap making him bleed. Gabi asks if this is some kind of an act. Johnny claims he was reading her signals loud and clear. Gabi reminds him that she’s in a loving relationship with his uncle Jake. Johnny jokes that the family doesn’t think about him. Johnny asks what the big deal is since he used to have a wife but things change. Johnny pours himself a drink which Gabi questions. Gabi says he may have sabotaged his marriage but she’s in a loving relationship with Jake. Johnny remarks that it doesn’t mean she can’t have a little fun on the side.

Craig tells Chloe that he got her message and took the first flight out. Chloe says she misses him and they have to set mom straight. Craig asks if she’s driving her crazy. Chloe talks about how Nancy thinks Craig has some woman on the side and she’s trying to tell her she’s being ridiculous but she won’t listen. Craig thanks her for her concern and is sorry that she dragged her into this. Chloe says it’s not his fault as she knows he’d never cheat on her. Craig talks about how Nancy gets when she gets these things in her head. Nancy then appears and questions that being what he wants Chloe to believe.

“Sarah” questions Abigail thinking that she’s Kristen and says she doesn’t have time for this. Abigail says it all makes sense that Kristen kidnapped Sarah, put her in a suitcase, then put on her Sarah mask to make all of Salem believe she left on her own free will. “Sarah” calls her delusional. Abigail talks about Kristen doing the same thing to Kate. Abigail gets a call from an unknown caller and tells “Sarah” not to move as she answers the call which turns out to be from Kristen DiMera, shocking Abigail.

Brady enters the Kiriakis Mansion where he finds Xander drinking in the living room. Brady says he’s here to pick Maggie up for an AA meeting. Xander says she’s upstairs so he figured she wouldn’t mind if he helped himself to some of Victor’s scotch. Brady hopes someone is giving him a ride home. Xander says he’ll take a taxi. Xander stops Brady to ask how he drowns his sorrows since he doesn’t drink. Brady responds that he just allows himself to experience his sorrows now and he talks to people he trusts about them then vows to make better choices to avoid more sorrow until eventually things get better. Xander says he’s just not as patient so for him, eventually isn’t soon enough. Brady says he’s going to find Maggie. Xander mentions that he admires Maggie for not drowning her sorrows either and facing them head on with courage. Brady stops and asks Xander what is wrong. Xander tells him to just treat him like he normally does and ignore him. Brady questions what he’s talking about. Xander brings up Sarah and says that he thought she was the love of his life, but she dumped him again.

Abigail asks Kristen who is really on the phone. Kristen assures that it’s her and tells her that she has a story for her. Abigail tells her to go on and asks what kind of scoop they are talking about. Kristen informs Abigail that she had nothing to do with the disappearance of Philip and she would never frame Brady. Kristen declares that she’s an innocent woman and then hangs up. “Sarah” says she could hear that was Kristen and jokes that she needs to brush up on her reporter skills. “Sarah” says she has a plane to catch but Abigail stops her and says she’s not done with her yet.

Chanel tells Paulina how scared she was for her when she heard the chandelier almost fell on top of her and she could’ve died. Paulina points out that she didn’t and just turned her ankle while Lani took real good care of her. Paulina says it’s Chanel that she’s been worried about since she hasn’t talked to her since the reception. Chanel complains about Johnny making a fool of her in front of both of their families. Paulina declares that they will make him pay and says to just leave everything to her. Paulina reveals that she’s talking to one of the top divorce lawyers in the country because they are taking Johnny to the cleaners.

Johnny tells Gabi that he won’t tell if she won’t. Johnny calls Gabi a hot, beautiful, and smart woman. Johnny asks if she’s really ready to limit her sex life to Jake DiMera for the rest of her life. Gabi admits she never said she wasn’t attracted to him, but assures that her and Jake are committed to each other. Johnny brings up an open relationship. Gabi says that Jake is very traditional so that’s not for them. Johnny then grabs Gabi and kisses her again as Allie walks in and questions them. Gabi tries to explain as Johnny claims they were discussing DiMera marketing reports. Allie tells Gabi that it must’ve been hard to talk with Johnny’s tongue down her throat. Allie questions Johnny caring about the company. Johnny reveals that EJ signed his shares over to him which surprises Allie. Allie thought Johnny bragged about never turning corporate. Johnny claims he realized it was time to take his rightful place at DiMera. Allie asks if Gabi came to offer congratulations. Gabi decides to head out. Johnny tells her that they will continue this conversation some other time. Gabi asks Allie not to tell Jake what she saw. Allie assures that they are not on her list of priorities as Gabi then exits. Johnny asks what her problem is. Allie responds that he’s even more of a disgusting jerk than she thought.

Chanel doesn’t want Paulina to go after Johnny’s money. Paulina questions why not. Chanel says she’s a strong independent woman like her. Chanel tells her to forget about Johnny and his twisted family’s fortune. Paulina agrees for now. Chanel remarks that she should’ve listened to Allie when she tried to warn her about her brother then she wouldn’t be in this mess now. Paulina comments that she’s glad they are friends as she saw the way Allie ran after her when she left the reception. Chanel calls her the best. Paulina guesses that Allie made her feel better. Chanel confirms that she wouldn’t have been able to get through that night without her. Paulina responds that she already knew that. Paulina then reveals to Chanel that she saw her and Allie in bed.

Craig asks Nancy what he has to say to convince her that there is no other woman. Nancy asks him to tell her that he’s not having an affair and mean it, but guesses that he can’t. Chloe complains about the dysfunction. Craig can’t believe Nancy brought Chloe in to this. Nancy argues that Chloe has every right to know that her father is a lying, cheating womanizer. Craig declares that’s it and he gives up.

“Sarah” asks how she can be Kristen when Abigail just hung up with her. Abigail argues that it was a phone call, not a video chat. Abigail is sure Kristen could get a voice double like she did the mask. Abigail asks who else would have motive to come to town dressed as Sarah just to break up with Xander all over again.

Kayla tries to pick the lock to Mother Superior’s drawer and wonders why she would have to lock it. Kristen then walks in and tells Kayla that her search is over as she pulls a gun on her. Kristen mocks her and Steve. Kayla tells her to save it and admits she was helping Steve look for her because she wouldn’t let him come alone. Kayla mentions that Steve thought she would be here because it’s what she did before. Kristen states that Steve won’t be able to bring her in this time and remarks that curiosity killed the patch.

Xander complains to Brady about “Sarah” calling him a creep and making it very clear to him again that she’s absolutely done with him and wants nothing to do with him. Brady admits that sounds pretty brutal. Xander guesses he had it coming since he’s a terrible person, so he thinks maybe Sarah finally realized that. Brady knows how much Xander loved Sarah and how devoted Sarah was to him. Brady adds that Maggie would go on about it and was really rooting for them. Xander guesses they both think he got what he deserves. Brady reveals that in this case he doesn’t, because he thinks his feelings for Sarah were genuine. Xander complains about her jumping in to bed with Rex on his wedding day and then dumping Rex shortly after. Brady says he knows better than anyone what it’s like to have a relationship just blow up in spectacular fashion. Xander guesses he means his relationship with Kristen. Brady confirms he now has Steve trying to hunt her down.

Chanel tells Paulina that she was so messed up after what Johnny did that she didn’t want to be alone so Allie hung out with her until she fell asleep. Paulina reminds Chanel that she always told her to tell the truth. Chanel claims she is just telling the truth and that all they did was cuddle. Paulina stops her and reveals that she really saw them together.

Allie complains about Johnny dumping Chanel and now trying to come on to Gabi. Allie asks what Will would think about him trying to hook up with Arianna’s mom. Johnny doesn’t know why Will would care since he obviously wasn’t that in to her. Johnny says Allie on the other hand, but she tells him to shut his mouth. Johnny jokingly asks if she’s jealous. Allie questions Johnny drinking in the middle of the day. Johnny calls her a joke, while Allie calls him a jackass. Johnny acknowledges that he always will be to her and asks if she gets tired of judging everyone she meets. Allie thanks God that Chanel is through with him. Johnny says she warned her that he would hurt her and she was right, so that should make her day. Allie argues that she hoped for Chanel’s sake, that he would be different this time. Allie always knew he was a player but she realizes now that he’s also a soulless creep.

“Sarah” tells Abigail again that she came back because Xander was making Maggie worried about her. Abigail questions how she found out when no one could reach Sarah. “Sarah” claims she has her ways and says there’s no big story here. “Sarah” asks what she has to do to convince her. Abigail thinks back to arguing with Gwen about trying to find Sarah. Abigail then realizes she’s not Kristen and asks Gwen how she got her hands on the mask. “Sarah” guesses she won’t let this insanity go. Abigail says she can deny it all she wants but she’s onto her now. “Sarah” declares that she’s done with this. Abigail threatens to make a scene if she pushes past her and asks if she wants to risk that. Abigail asks who told her to stop looking for Sarah as it wasn’t Maggie or Xander, it was Gwen. Abigail says she ignored her and kept looking while now she’s on to her. Abigail declares that Gwen is so desperate to keep Xander that she will do anything.

Nancy complains about Craig covering up an affair. Nancy thanks him for turning a good marriage into a cliché. Craig tells Chloe that this is what he has to deal with. Chloe tells Nancy that she believes her father and she knows him better than anyone. Craig assures that Chloe knows he’s telling the truth. Craig tells Nancy how much she means to him and that there’s no other woman in the world for him as he hugs her.

Chanel tells Paulina that it just happened and she’s not ashamed. Paulina doesn’t want her to be ashamed. Paulina talks about Chanel going to bed with a brother and sister who are twins, so that’s a dicey situation. Chanel argues that Paulina messed around with Abe after she knew that he had been with Tamara. Paulina tells her not to get in to that business and argues that there were 30 years between her relationship with Abe and Tamara’s, while Chanel hopped in bed with Allie on the night her husband ended her marriage. Paulina asks how long this has been going on. Chanel insists that it hasn’t been since Allie is in love with Tripp. Paulina says they both know that is not the case. Paulina says Chanel and Allie had a strong connection way before she ever saw Johnny. Chanel insists that it never went beyond a couple of kisses. Paulina says that’s until it did. Paulina knows she believes it wasn’t planned, but suggests she take a step back, search her heart, and come to terms with how she feels about Johnny and Allie. Paulina tells her not to let the situation get completely out of hand.

Allie asks Johnny if he knows how much he hurt Chanel when she really loved him and thought he was the one. Johnny laughs at that and calls it ridiculous. Johnny remarks that they both know who has the key to Chanel’s heart and it ain’t him. Johnny mocks Allie’s life and says she enjoys being with Tripp because he’s safe. Johnny argues that him marrying Chanel didn’t stop her from lusting after her. Allie calls Johnny a pig. Johnny calls Allie a hypocrite and says he saw how she flew out of there to console Chanel. Johnny bets that Allie consoled her right out of her clothes and in to bed.

“Sarah” mocks Abigail’s journalism. Abigail tells her to insult her all she wants and says she’s still going to prove it’s Gwen under the Sarah mask. Gwen thinks back to Ava showing up at her door in the Sarah mask. “Sarah” tells Abigail that she’s done with this and tries to leave but Abigail grabs her and says she wants to take an up close look at that mask.

Chanel tells Paulina that she loves Allie as a friend and admits she is physically attracted to her, but cries that she was really in love with Johnny and she thought he loved her too. Paulina is sorry that Johnny treated her the way he did. Chanel doesn’t know that Johnny and talks about how her Johnny showed her around Rome. Chanel doesn’t understand what happened. Paulina encourages that she will get through this. Chanel wishes she had her faith. Paulina says she has enough for the both of them and hugs her as she cries. Paulina hates to leave her like this but says she has to go for a follow up appointment at the hospital. Chanel tells her to make sure her ankle is healing right, even if her broken heart never does.

Allie tells Johnny that she actually hates him. Allie clarifies she hates the things he does but mostly feels sorry for him and calls him just as delusional as most of the twisted members of EJ’s side of the family. Allie tells Johnny that she’s in love with Tripp while Chanel is her best friend. Allie thought she could come talk to the Johnny that she loved when they were kids and ask why he did what he did to Chanel. Allie says she was dumb enough to think that she could talk sense in to him and get him to go apologize to Chanel. Johnny declares that he will never apologize for what he is as that’s not the DiMera way. Allie tells him to be a good DiMera and make EJ and Stefano proud. Allie declares that he used to have a twin sister, but he does not anymore. Allie states that she has one brother and that’s Will. Allie tells Johnny that he’s on his own as she then storms out of the mansion. The Devil takes over Johnny and remarks that she doesn’t know the half of it.

Xander questions Brady hiring Steve to track down Kristen. Brady wants to bring her to justice. Xander hopes that he finds her. Xander brings up his own miserable headaches thanks to Kristen. Xander admits he suspected Kristen may have had a hand in Sarah’s disappearance. Brady understands why he would think that. Xander hoped she had been involved since it would be better for his ego, but it turns out Sarah left him on her own free will. Brady asks if Sarah is just leaving again. Xander confirms that she’s determined to get far away from Salem and him and there’s nothing he or anybody can do to stop her…

Kayla argues that Steve isn’t dead and that Kristen is just trying to throw her off. Kristen tells her that she’s been one step ahead of them this entire time and reveals that she was watching when they first arrived. Kristen then informs Kayla that while she was in this office, she was in her hotel room, taking care of Steve. Kayla asks what that means. Kristen remarks that she did what had to be done and reveals that she ignored her phone call an hour ago. Kayla is shocked and asks if Kristen killed Steve.

Allie goes to see Chanel and says they need to talk.

Gabi sits at the Bistro, leaving a message for Jake that she needs to talk about her meeting with Johnny as he’s apparently more of an operator than she thought. Johnny then appears behind her and asks if his ears should be burning.

Craig invites Nancy and Chloe out for dinner to celebrate. Chloe suggests the Bistro. Nancy wants to go back to her hotel to freshen up first so Craig says they will meet her there in an hour. Nancy tells him that she’s so happy as he kisses her. Nancy then exits. Chloe tells Craig that she knew he wouldn’t cheat on her but she had to hear it from him as they hug.

Kayla confronts Kristen for killing Steve and grabs her. They struggle over Kristen’s gun until the gun goes off.

“Sarah” and Abigail fight in the town square as Abigail says it’s all over as she has figured her out. “Gwen” then appears in the town square and questions what Abigail is doing, leaving Abigail confused in between “Sarah” and “Gwen”.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Mariah: Ooh! Nothing like coming downstairs in the morning, having a cup of coffee waiting for you.

Noah: Well, I hope you had up at your place because this one is for dad.

Mariah: Rude.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Mariah: So, you’re already buttering up the boss. Please tell me you accepted nick’s job offer.

Noah: I did.

Mariah: Yay! So you’re less of a flight risk now.

Noah: I’m not sure I like those criminal connotations, miss.

Mariah: You know what i meant. I know that you said that you were planning on staying and you’ve been here for a while now, but I got the sense that you didn’t want to be tied down, but now you’ve made a commitment.

Noah: Well, it’s a commitment to see how things go. So, how about you? You seemed kind of stressed out last night. Is everything okay with you and tess?

Mariah: Yeah, everything’s amazing. It’s better than it’s ever been. Um, I just have a couple of friends going through a tough time. And I see both sides of the situation. But there’s nothing I can do. So I just have to sit back, hold my breath, and hope everything works out for the best.

Abby: Chance, you don’t mean that. You can be a good father to dominic. You already are.

Devon: Chance, thank you for being honest, alright? I know that wasn’t easy for you to say. Now, I believe that we can all work together and come up with some kind of solution that will be good for everybody.

Abby: Just stop. You’re putting undue pressure on him, and it’s self-serving.

Chance: Abby, no. I came here on my own will.

Abby: Chance, I understand your impulse to reach out. I had the same one. But this was a mistake. We need to discuss this privately. Devon, we will talk to you after we meet with christine.

Devon: Abby, hang on. I’m your friend, okay? You know that. You know I wouldn’t do anything to intentionally hurt you, right?

Abby: Really? Because this hurts. It’s a betrayal.

Devon: I’m sorry that you see it that way. I really am. But I understand that you are doing what you think you need to do to protect your family. You need to understand, though, that that’s what I’m trying to do also. I wouldn’t be putting you guys through any of this if I didn’t care so much about dominic and you and chance.

Abby: Okay.

Chance: We’ll be in touch.

[ Door closes ]

Amanda: Wow. Well, if it isn’t dr. Askmdnow.

Elena: And if it isn’t the proprietor of genoa city’s newest law firm.

Amanda: So, you feeling up for the day?

Elena: I am. I have exactly 20 minutes before I need to head to the clinic. How about you?

Amanda: Client meetings all day.

Elena: Hmm. So, how’s working with your sister?

Amanda: Oh, well, there is never a dull moment with imani.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Amanda: But she is holding her own. She has so many contacts from working with the family.

Elena: Ah. So that means a lot of people in politics, right?

Amanda: Yes, and she has not been shy about reaching out and, um, getting in touch.

Elena: Really? Shocking. She’s always been so timid and self-effacing.

Amanda: [ Chuckles ] She did give me an earful about her last encounter with you and nate.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] Yeah. Surprisingly enough, she didn’t seem as happy as everyone else about us living together.

Amanda: So, how is nate?

Elena: Who’s asking — you or your sister?

Amanda: Both, maybe.

Elena: [ Laughs ] He’s fine. I mean, honestly, he’s wonderful. He’s a great housemate. And you can feel free to tell your sister that we went with the beige bathroom rug. She’ll know what I’m talking about.

Amanda: Okay. Well, cheers to you both.

Elena: Thanks. Hey, nate and I have been concerned about devon and this lawsuit.

Amanda: Yeah.

Elena: I mean, it’s all happening so fast. How’s it going?

Devon: Hey, man.

Nate: It’s a beautiful day out today, man. Am I wrong, or are we supposed to go for a run?

Devon: Just not really feeling up to that today.

Nate: What’s wrong?

Devon: Abby and chance just left.

Nate: [ Sighs ] How’s that situation going?

Devon: It’s not going well. Life’s been hard enough.

Nick: Hey, room for one more?

Mariah: Yeah. I hear congratulations are in order. We’ve got another newman recruit at new hope.

Nick: I’m so looking forward to it, just a father and son, nose to the grindstone, changing the world one family at a time. It’s been forever since we teamed up. I’m so excited.

Noah: Yeah, I think since the underground.

Nick: I think that new hope is gonna give you a real chance to spread your wings.

Mariah: And this is not going to be slinging beers and flirting with the customers. You’re gonna have to do, like, you know, actual work.

Noah: I may need to rethink this.

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Make no mistake. There is a lot of work to do. But I can promise you that every day is gonna be different from the day before. And when a mother or father walks up to you and looks you in your eye and tells you that you changed their kids’ lives forever, there is no better feeling than that. You won’t want to do anything else. I seriously think he’s gonna revitalize the entire program.

Mariah: Wow. Those are some high expectations.

Nick: He’s up for it, right?

Noah: I can’t wait to get started.

Nick: Attaboy.

Elena: Wow. Poor devon. He and abby used to be so close. That must break his heart that she’s acting like he’s turned on her.

Amanda: Yeah, and now he’s worried that, even after everything is resolved, she may never trust him the same way.

Elena: Well, hopefully it doesn’t come to that.

Amanda: Well, if he wins, she’ll resent him, and if he loses, she will never forget that he tried to get custody.

Elena: Yeah, but I can understand why she’s acting so emotionally. I mean, nothing’s turned out how she thought it would. First she finds out that she can’t carry a child and then she learns that chance can’t father a baby and then her surrogate gets kidnapped by her ex-husband. And if that’s not bad enough, once the baby’s home safe and sound, she’s mistakenly told that her husband is killed.

Amanda: This is different. She’s not losing dominic. His biological father just wants to spend more time with him, just weekly visits.

Elena: I understand, but the fear of losing a child, it’s — it’s primal. I see it all the time with families who have sick babies. They’re terrified of losing their little ones, so they start acting out. They start doing things that defy logic. I just hope dominic comes out of this knowing how loved he is.

Amanda: That’s what everyone wants. They want the story to have a happy ending. But for now it’s just a complicated situation from every angle.

Nate: So, you’re telling me chance came over without abby.

Devon: Yes, he did. And it surprised the hell out of me, too.

Nate: That says a lot, you know? Sounds like he trusts you.

Devon: Well, he — he opened up about how he’s been struggling.

Nate: Well, that’s progress.

Devon: It would be if abby saw it that way. But she showed up not long after he did, and she wasn’t happy to see him here, especially after she heard what I asked him.

Nate: Which was?

Devon: Given the trauma that he’s experienced, does he really feel like he’s in the right headspace to give dominic all the love and support that he needs right now? And he said no.

Nate: Damn. Phew. How did abby react?

Devon: She still sees me as the bad guy who’s trying to get in the way of dominic and chance’s relationship, which I’m not trying to do.

Nate: Yeah. Yeah. All you want to do is protect your relationship with your biological son.

Devon: That’s absolutely right, yeah. Maybe you can get that through to abby ’cause everything I’ve tried hasn’t worked. And you know that going the legal route is the last thing i ever wanted to do. But it’s — I think it’s pretty clear that we’re in for a battle.

Abby: Why didn’t you tell me that you were going to devon’s? I understand that you have a lot of conflicting emotions, but you should talk to me about that. Or go see a counselor. You don’t go talk to the man who is suing us for custody of our son.

Chance: I know, abby, but if we don’t figure this out between ourselves, a judge is gonna decide for us. You know that, right?

Abby: Right! Even more reason not to go spill your guts to devon, who’s gonna use your words as weapons against us.

Chance: I don’t think he’s gonna do that.

Abby: Really?

Chance: Yes.

Abby: Because he is twisting your personal trauma into a failure, which it is not.

Chance: Abby, I know you would do anything for our family.

Abby: Yeah, you’re right. And I will not let anyone splinter us. So, I’m gonna go check on dom and louise. Will you be here when I get back?

Chance: Of course. Kim is now demonstrating her congestion.

Nate: If abby and chance are reacting out of shock and they’re panicking, which is what it sounds like to me, maybe you should ease up on them. You know, give them time to adjust to the idea of sharing custody.

Devon: Well, they weren’t for the idea of arranged visits. When I brought that up the first time, abby got pissed. When I told her forget it, she thought I meant forget the whole idea, and then when I brought it up again, she went off.

Nate: Must have been hard on both of you.

Devon: Beyond all that, i don’t want to give them too much time to come up with a counterargument. I don’t know if christine is gonna advise them to cut off all contact between me and dominic to weaken my case.

Nate: You don’t think they would agree to that, do you?

Devon: I don’t know what they’re gonna do. Abby’s upset. And lawyers are involved. Who knows what can happen now. So, for dom’s sake, I don’t want to take that chance.

Nate: And lawyers don’t care about collateral damage or what happens to your relationship with abby and chance.

Devon: No, they don’T. And that’s not something that i can worry about right now ’cause my son needs me. That’s the whole reason i started this in the first place. So it needs to get resolved as soon as possible.

Nate: Well, it’s not gonna get resolved today. So what I think we should do is get our heart pumping, man, you know, get that rush of endorphins that come from running in cold weather.

Devon: I — another time.

Nate: There’s no time like today. So go on upstairs and get dressed, and let’s get ready for this run.

Devon: I really don’t want to.

Nate: Do you know how many people would kill for my medical advice?

Devon: Maybe when you were the face of askmdnow.

Nate: And now I’m the chief of surgery. So go get changed for this run and be prepared to be left in the dust.

Devon: Oh, gosh. Okay. Alright. Alright.

Nate: Trust me. It’ll be good for you.

Devon: Yeah.

Noah: So, I’ve been doing some research into this movement that converts empty lots into green spaces.

Mariah: Oh, like urban gardens.

Noah: Yeah, and pocket parks, too. It’s a place to relax, a garden to grow vegetables, maybe some beehives.

Nick: New hope honey. Sounds sweet.

[ Laughs ]

Mariah: No. But I would buy some.

Noah: And there’s tons of other benefits, too. Shade, a place to relax, reduced air pollution.

Nick: You know what? There’s lots of empty lots in town that aren’t big enough for affordable housing, but they could certainly hold a community garden. I am gonna put you in touch with some geniuses who can help you with the grant applications for that.

Noah: Cool.

Tessa: There she is, my reason for singing.

Mariah: Wow. You’re such a flatterer.

Tessa: Hi, nick. Hi, noah.

Noah: Hey.

Mariah: Uh, where’d you run off to this morning?

Tessa: Oh, I just had some things that I had to take care of. Would you guys mind if i borrowed her for a minute?

Mariah: Yeah. What do you need?

Tessa: Oh, well, I’m meeting with bettina, and you are so much better with promoters than I could ever be.

Mariah: Oh, that is very sweet. And even though I’m not your pr guru anymore, I am the best hype girl.

Tessa: That is very true.

Mariah: Alright. Well, I’ll see you guys later.

Nick: Yeah. Good luck.

Tessa: Okay. Well, thank you.

Mariah: Yeah.

Tessa: Bye.

Nick: You know what I’m also gonna do? I am gonna put you in touch with this landscape architect that we’ve used on several of our projects. She’s local. She’s amazing, done a lot of work with the museums and — hmm.

[ Door closes ]

Chance: Where is louise going? Is she taking the baby for a walk?

Abby: Yeah. I asked her to. I didn’t want her to overhear our conversation with christine.

Chance: Why would that matter?

Abby: Because what if amanda subpoenas her and asks her to testify? I mean, yes, she works here with our family, but she did go over to devon’s and help while I was in spain. And I would never want to put her in the middle of all of this.

Chance: Alright, well, hopefully it’s not gonna get that far, right?

Abby: I wish that devon would realize that what he is doing is wrong and it could cause a lot of damage.

Chance: Abby, I think he means well.

Abby: Please. There is a difference between doing the right thing and rationalizing to get what you want. We are dominic’s parents, and we are doing a good job. Just because you are going through a hard time, it doesn’t change that. Everyone goes through rough patches.

Chance: I know, but I am trying to tell you that I do not have it in me right now. I do not have what dominic needs. I don’T.

Abby: Chance! He is playing on your insecurities! You are going to bond with him the way that devon has. It just takes time and patience.

Chance: I love that you believe in me like that. I do. I really love it. But I’m telling you it is not gonna be that easy. It’s not. You don’t realize what I’m dealing with right now. I’m having a hard time, and that’s not your fault. It’s not your fault. It’s mine. I haven’t been really honest with you about it.

Devon: You think we really need caffeine before we work out?

Nate: Yes. It helps increase metabolism.

Devon: Okay. Hey, guys.

Nick: Speak of the devil.

Devon: What’s going on?

Noah: It’s my first day on the job at new hope.

Devon: Oh, nice, nice. I look forward to working with you.

Noah: Me too. Actually, I wanted to pick your brain about something I saw in the files. It was the training program for restaurant employees?

Devon: Yeah, that was something that abby and I were working on at society before her star chef took off to miami.

Noah: Oh.

Devon: But abby’s been in and out of the restaurant lately.

Noah: I’m sure she’s been busy with the baby and all.

Devon: Yeah, she has, but I’m still a huge fan of that concept, whether we bring it to society or, you know, start up a little café for the same purpose.

Noah: I mean, I’d love to make it reality. Something like that could really change people’s lives for the better.

Nick: And that is why i wanted him to come on board.

Devon: Hey, that’s the same way hamilton-winters started. I wanted to figure out how to work with my dad, you know? That father/son bond is very special. You should always treasure it.

Noah: Yeah.

Nick: Yeah.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: Well, um… what haven’t you been honest with me about?

Chance: Just how I’ve been dealing with everything that i went through in spain. I’m not okay, abby. I’m having nightmares.

Abby: Yeah. Um, I know. I — I hear you screaming.

Chance: I’m sorry. It’s hard for me to even talk about them.

Abby: I guess I just figured that you’d — you’d tell me what they were about when you were ready.

Chance: Well, they — they start out as normal dreams. And then it’ll just cut black. And I feel this — I feel this pressure on me. I can’t move. And then I’m in spain. I’m back there the night of the explosion, and I’m — I’m watching my entire team die. And I don’t even have to be asleep for those images and — and sounds and — and smells to come back to me. They’re always in my head. I try to shut them out, and i can’T. They always come back to me. It doesn’t matter what I’m doing. It doesn’t matter where I am. All I see is the building up in smoke. I see bodies. I heard this ringing in my ears, buried under this rubble and… I don’t know. I’ve tried to wash these out. I’ve tried to get rid of them, but it doesn’t work. I can’t fix it.

Abby: I’m so sorry.

[ Sniffles ] That sounds awful. And exhausting. I mean, that’s probably why you feel too tired to care for our baby.

Chance: Abby, I’ve been trying so hard to be okay. I’ve been trying so hard to be a good dad and a man that you can depend on, and I — I’m just not that guy anymore. I’m not the same guy I was when I left here a year ago. And I feel like I’m letting you down.

Abby: No. You could never disappoint me. Look, we are gonna get you some help, and we’re gonna find someone that’s gonna help you get to the other side. And in the meantime, I think you just — you need some rest.

Chance: Yeah. Some sleep will definitely be a good start.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Abby: Alright, well, um… okay, that must be christine, so we will talk about this later.

Chance: Yeah. Yeah, sure.

Abby: Okay.

Chance: [ Sighs ]

[ Exhales heavily ]

[ Door opens ]

Abby: Christine, hi.

Christine: Hi. Sorry I’m late.

Abby: Oh, no. Come on in. We were just talking.

Chance: Hey.

Christine: How are you?

Chance: Let me get your coat from you.

Christine: Thank you.

Chance: Of course.

Christine: Appreciate it.

Chance: Can I get you a drink, anything like that?

Christine: No, no, no. I’m fine. Thanks.

Abby: Please make yourself comfortable.

Christine: Before, uh, we begin, I just wanted to say how sorry I am that you and devon are at odds.

Abby: Yeah. Um, me too. But I’m very confident that we were very careful when we drew up that legal agreement, and i think that if devon does take us to court, we should be protected, right? I mean, the judge should make him abide by that agreement.

Christine: Well, yeah, I wish it were that simple.

Abby: Why wouldn’t it be?

Christine: Gestational surrogacy is a relatively new development, legally speaking. Different states have different rules. There isn’t much legislation in place in wisconsin to regulate the process, and there isn’t much relevant case law.

Chance: So this is all just a gray area.

Christine: Well, the one overriding principle is the judge should make the decision in the best interest of the child.

Chance: So, if the judge decides devon would be a better father, they could rule in his favor, right?

Christine: I know it isn’t what you want to hear, but… yes, legally, that is possible.

New vicks convenience pack.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Christine: So, why don’t we go over the factors that would work in our favor if this case goes in front of a judge? For one thing, you’re a married couple providing a stable home and family. Now, we could argue giving devon shared custody would be disruptive and confusing to the baby.

Abby: What about the signed contract that we have with devon?

Christine: Well, that isn’t necessarily enforceable. It does show that devon had no desire to play a role in raising dominic, aside from being a close family friend.

Abby: I always said that i would be honest with dominic that devon is his biological father, but that’s only because I insisted on it.

Chance: What if devon brings up the fact that very little of this process has gone the way we expected?

Christine: He could make that argument. Abby left the baby in his care, not a member of her family or a nanny, and because of that, he could say that she was encouraging him to take a paternal role in dominic’s life and that it would be in the baby’s best interest to continue that.

Chance: Because of me and my issues.

Christine: If the other side decides to play hardball, they will assert that you’re suffering from emotional trauma from being overseas, that you’re incapable of being a father, that the biological father is ready, willing, and eager to assume that role.

Abby: That’s cruel and unfair.

Christine: I know. It’s just — it’s a possibility we have to prepare for. Now, chance, you would have to testify under oath that those accusations are unfounded. Are you up for that?

Abby: Yes. I mean, chance would do anything to protect our family. And I know that he is making up for the time that he lost with dominic, but if devon were the friend that he says that he is, he would be supporting us. He wouldn’t be taking us to court and stressing us out. We are dominic’s parents. We can provide him with everything that he needs, and devon —

Chance: Abby, abby, abby, stop. Stop. I can’t lie anymore. I’m not gonna lie to myself or to you, and I’m definitely not gonna lie in court. I mean, devon’s right. Devon is absolutely right.

Nick: So, we have funding coming in from a few different foundations, some government programs, a lot of private donors who are all very excited that you’re coming on board to work with us.

Noah: Yeah, yeah, yeaH. I can’t wait.

Nick: I’m gonna put together a spreadsheet of the application deadlines, the various people that are in charge, you know, the ones that you should be prioritizing. Looks to me like your eyes are glazing over.

Noah: Yeah. Yeah. I’m — I’m sorry. It’s just — it’s a lot of details all at once. Do you mind if we take a break?

Nick: Yeah. Cool. Plus, it’ll give me a chance to ask you about something that is none of my business.

Noah: Okay.

Nick: We’re gonna be working together, but I don’t ever want you to feel like I’m prying into your personal life.

Noah: Dad, you don’t have to make a disclaimer with me. Just tell me what’s on your mind.

Nick: When mariah and tessa left, uh, I couldn’t help but notice that it seemed to deflate you.

Noah: Well, they’re pretty entertaining.

Nick: You sure that’s all it is?

Mariah: Uh… either we stumbled into a private party or bettina got the wrong idea about, uh, what was happening in this meeting.

Tessa: Um, I lied about meeting bettina.

Mariah: And why would you do that?

Tessa: Well, I needed to lure you here into my carefully choreographed plan. This, uh, private setting, this romantic restaurant — it’s for us.

Mariah: This is beautiful. And you’re beautiful and I don’t deserve you and I don’t know what I did to deserve this, actually. Are we celebrating something?

Tessa: Hopefully.

Mariah: Oh, my god, tessa, are — are you doing what i think you’re doing?

[ Exhales sharply ]

Allergies don’t have to be


Noah: I’m not sure what you’re getting at.

Nick: Look, I’ve been around the block a time or two. Doesn’t mean I’m gonna lecture you or interrogate you. But you and tessa — you know, you have a history, and I know better than anyone what it’s like when you have old feelings resurface.

Noah: Look, dad, I don’t know what you think you saw, but…

Nick: Okay.

Noah: I would never do that to my sister’s girlfriend.

Nick: Noah, I’m not accusing you of anything. But actions are easy to control. Feelings, not so much. You and tessa had something good, you know, and she’s very talented. She’s very beautiful. You two have been working very closely on this album cover stuff, so it’s only natural that some old attractions might be rekindled. I mean, it happens.

Noah: [ Sighs ] You don’t think mariah knows, do you?

Mariah: Oh, my god, this feels like I’m dreaming. Am I dreaming?

Tessa: We deserve every bit of happiness because we never gave up on love, ourselves, our dreams. Remember when we started out a million years ago? We were just this delicate, fragile thing. But every time we made the choice to trust it, to forgive each other’s mistakes, to help each other heal, it only grew stronger and more powerful and more beautiful.

Mariah: Oh, my god, I cannot.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: But even though i can’t imagine my heart being any fuller than it is now, I know that when we have a family, it’ll only expand and become more infinite.

Mariah: A-are you doing this because of our plans to adopt?

Tessa: I can’t remember a moment when I didn’t want this. I was just waiting until we were both ready. And now I am. And I really hope you are, too.

Mariah: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Sniffles ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

Tessa: I’m so lucky… to be the women that loves and is loved by you. And I know in my soul that we were meant to live this life together. And that’s why I’m proposing…

[ Both laugh ] …That we make it official. Marry me, mariah?

Mariah: [ Breathing heavily ]

Tessa: This is the part where you say “yes.”

Mariah: I can’T.

[ Sniffles ] Before I answer your question… there’s something that I have to tell you.

[ Door closes ]

Chance: [ Exhales heavily ] I’m — I’m so sorry.

Abby: No. No. Don’t be.

Chance: I know that’s not what you wanted to hear, but it’s the truth, abby. I feel like I’m barely holding it together right now. My body is here, but my mind is still in sin>My team, and I’m asking myself, “why did I survive? What could I have done to save everyone?” It goes through my mind every day. Every day, going through every single possible scenario. And I can’t get in front of a court right now and lie. I can’t do that.

Abby: No, no, I-I wouldn’t want you to lie only to hope things would get better. I just — I want you to be better.

Chance: When you were overwhelmed, you went to devon for help.

Abby: But that was a temporary fix. What you’re asking — it would be giving devon permanent legal rights to our son, all because you’re stressed right now. It’s gonna go away. I am sorry that I put so much pressure on you. And I will take on all of the childcare. I’ll do it while you recover. I would be happy to do it. We don’t need to turn to devon.

Chance: Abby, I truly don’t understand why you’re fighting this so much. I mean, devon loves dominic. And there’s nothing wrong with him wanting to play a permanent part in that little boy’s life. That’s what any good father would do.

Amanda: Dominic has a good father! It’s you!

Chance: Stop saying that. I am no good to anyone right now. I am — I am broken right now, abby. I am broken. My wounds have healed, but there is something wrong with me inside, okay? It’s like this constant pressure that I’m feeling. It’s like a — it’s like a black hole is just ripping away all my energy, and I have nothing left to give to dominic. I have nothing!

Abby: Then let me help you.

Chance: This would help me — knowing dominic is in good hands and he’s not being deprived of a father’s love because I can’t figure it out. Abby, I need this just as much as devon and dominic. Please. You got to trust me. This is the right thing to do.

Well, well, well.

Look at you.

Abby: I am so sorry. I had no idea how much pain that you were in. And I wish I could just make it all go away. I wish I could make everything that happened to you in spain just disappear.

Chance: [ Smooches ] Yeah, I know. And I will keep fighting to get better. I promise you that. I’ll figure this out. I just have to let go of all this guilt that I have.

Abby: Oh, no one should make you feel guilty. This isn’t your fault. There’s no point in turning this into a battle or cutting out one of your friends. Abby, if this goes before a judge, they’re gonna do what’s best for the baby. And we both know what that means. Look, you’re scared where this might lead, I know.

Abby: I feel like every minute that dominic’s not with us, it’s just time that we could be bonding with him. And if we give in to devon now, I mean, what’s gonna stop him from asking for more time later?

Chance: We have to give devon the benefit of the doubt. I mean, the guy means well. He’s an excellent dad.

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Chance: Dominic will always be our son, abby. Don’t get me wrong. Devon doesn’t want to change that, either. He just wants to add a little love.

Abby: [ Sniffles ] I don’t know.

Chance: You know, a lot of kids grow up without parents, without a family. Dominic’s gonna be lucky enough to at least have three people love him more than life. And, baby, I know I’ve asked a lot of you these last couple months. I know I have. And here I am again asking you, with our son. I know you’re a planner and this is not what you wanted. I know it.

Abby: I mean, it was supposed to be you and me and our baby makes three.

Chance: I know, but think of what we stand to lose if we go before a judge. Think about it. And think about what we could gain if we just allow the man that helped us bring that boy into this world just to spend time with him every week. Think of how bigger his world will be, how much bigger our hearts will be.

Abby: I feel like he is trying to take our son.

Chance: No, that’s not it. It’s just welcoming devon into the family and giving me a little space to heal. I mean, don’t you want that?

Devon: [ Sighs ] Oh, my gosh. Felt like you were tryinto kill me, man.

Nate: But you made it back alive, just like I said.

Devon: [ Groans ] If you’re training for some, like, iron man competition, I’m not the one to do it with.

Nate: [ Laughs ] I told you I’d help you get your mind off things, and I did.

Devon: Yeah, now you got me thinking about my mortality.

Nate: And stopped you from checking your phone every two minutes to see if somebody called you.

Devon: Um… now this is all out of my hands, and I just have to trust that abby will come around or a judge will side with me and say I’m being reasonable.

Nate: Whatever it is, I hope it gets resolved soon.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Devon: Abby.

Abby: Devon, hi. Um… chance and I have talked, and if you’re up for it, we’d like to meet with you again.

Noah: Spending so much time with tessa lately has brought up a lot of memories from when we were together. Probably wasn’t the best idea to listen to all her music on loop when I was making the album cover.

Nick: Let me guess. A lot of love songs?

Noah: Yep. [ Sighs ] But you don’t have to worry. I’m not gonna make an ass of myself. Mariah and tessa are happy, and I’m happy for them. So they have my support 100%.

Nick: Well, I think that’s a good call. And if it helps, if you do decide to revisit an old relationship, there’s absolutely no guarantee that it won’t end the way it did the first time.

Noah: Yeah. I don’t know. Maybe — maybe it just felt safe to be nostalgic about tessa because I know she’s completely unavailable right now. And I’m not really looking for anything real, so I’ll just focus on my work, my family, and maybe trying to have some fun.

Nick: I like it. And your old man can help with all three.

Noah: Sounds good.

Mariah: Stand with me.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: Because that’s who we are to each other. We lift each other up.

Tessa: We always have.

Mariah: Especially and most notably this last summer.

Tessa: When you went missing, it shook me to my core.

Mariah: I know. And even when I came back, I was so lost. I was so unsure, and then for a brief period of time, I was too sure.

Tessa: [ Chuckles ]

Mariah: But all the while, you were patient and loving and reassuring. Your strength made me strong, and your power made me powerful. You were honest with me when it was really, really difficult.

Tessa: [ Laughs ]

Mariah: But, tessa, you brought me back to life. And I know it wasn’t easy.

Tessa: For either of us.

Mariah: But thank god you are so brave.

Tessa: We both are, relentlessly.

Mariah: And I am so grateful and so thankful for all of the crazy, impossible, insane things that have come into our life. And I — I wouldn’t change a minute of it because it brought us here, to this moment… to a life together that is… happier and more thrilling than I could have ever imagined it to be. And this love, our love — i want to share that with our kids. So I say yes… to more of that, to a lifetime of us. Yes, yes, yes, I will marry you.

[ Laughing ] Yes!

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Sniffles ] Oh, my gosh.

[ Both laugh ] Oh, my god. Oh, my god. Your eyes.

[ Knock on door ] Dante. Elizabeth. Hi. Hey, I’m sorry to bother you so early. Um… something terrible happened last night, and I just thought you should know about it. Come in. Come in. Okay… what happened? There was a fire at franco’s art studio. It’s gone. Oh, my god. The building burned down? No, not the building. Just the studio. Was anyone hurt? No. Thank goodness. How did the fire start? It was arson. What? You really are beautiful. Please. I was thinking about new year’s eve. Mm, yeah, I think about it, too. Quite a bit, actually. Um… sorry things have been a little crazy. We haven’t been able to revisit that. No rush. I’m not going anywhere, darling. Dr. Gatlin-holt, right? Amy driscoll said that I could find you here because that’s the only vending machine that has trail mix. Yeah, that’s true. It’s the only spot. You’re maxie’s mom. Hi. Yeah. Hi. It’s so nice to meet you. Why are you looking for me? It’s not a medical issue, is it? No, it’s purely about maxie. I thought I was being all brave, confronting a burglar, but it turns out it was cameron webber. Cameron? Yeah, I know. He and josslyn had no idea about the arrangement that me and jax have, so they came here looking for a little… sexy time. Oh. [ Gasps ] Oh. Yeah. You didn’t see them actually — oh, no. God, no. No. But I did clock cam over the head with a vase, and I practically gave the poor kid a concussion. Cam called his mom. She and finn came by. No concussion. Oh, and bailey’s still sleeping. Oh, thank goodness. Bailey’s been having a hard time at bedtime. You know, she’s adjusting to the new place. But I’ll give cam a call later, see how he’s doing. That’s nice of you. Okay, well, I’m glad that worked out, but you still haven’t told me why you’re here. Why’d you leave the quartermaines’? As we feared, granny tracy figured out that bailey’s really your daughter. Do you think we could move to someplace a little more private? Sure. Okay. Dr. Finn, a quick word? If you please. You seem to be on your way out. Finally transferring him to pentonville? Not yet. He’s complaining of back pain. Wow. Good, you should be suffering. Yes, I just had an mri, and lying still like that just has me in agony. In fact, I’d like to consult with dr. Finn. Waste someone else’s time. Back pain isn’t my specialty. I think you might have some insight into this particular pain. Feels like someone threw me down an entire flight of stairs.

[ Footsteps approaching ] -Caroline, wait! -Mitch? Look, I know I messed up, but I told diane it’s over. Can we have some space? Oh, yeah. Of course.

Are you saying someoneintentionally set fire to franco’s studio? Well, yeah. The investigation’s ongoing, but all the signs are there, yeah. Mom, what’s going on? Why is detective falconeri here? There was a fire in franco’s studio. What? How did this happen? Well, according to the arson investigator, they found traces of some kind of accelerant that was used. They had to force down the door. So we don’t know if someone actually broke in initially, or what. Who has keys to the studio? Me and the building superintendent. Do you mind checking to see if they’re missing? No, of course not. Thanks. When’s the last time you were at franco’s studio? Oh, it’s been months. Four, maybe six. I’ve pretty much left everything of franco’s untouched. Yeah, here are the keys, right where they should be. Hmm. And what about you, cam? When’s the last time you were at franco’s studio? Alright, you have my attention. Why’d you want to see me? Well, I think all this talk of transferring me is a bit premature. I’m still recovering from being poisoned, and now I have this mysterious back pain I’m dealing with. I think I need a doctor to say that I’m not medically ready to be transferred to pentonville. Take it up with your primary, or better yet, your sister. She’s co-chief. I don’t care that you’re not my doctor. Just get it done, fin. Or I’ll start talking about how you pushed me down a flight of stairs, dragged my unconscious body to a freezer, stuffed it in there, and left me for dead, remember that? It’s funny, that’s not how I remember it, and since there’s no evidence that I was with you that night, it’s really my word against yours, and… killers don’t make the most reliable witnesses. It might not be enough for criminal charges, but can gh really afford to keep a doctor on staff with such accusations hanging over them? Okay, now it’s starting to feel like things are unraveling. First chase figures it out and now tracy — how long until it’s peter? He cannot find out that bailey is really louise. Maxie, he won’T. Look, my granny only figured it out because she already knew that I was faking my pregnancy and I called her when I was initially looking for a baby. It wasn’t a huge leap when she saw you pining over bailey. And chase only put it together because he’s a super smart detective. Wow. Thanks. So look, we just have to hold it together for a little while longer, okay? Once peter is locked away for franco’s murder, bailey can finally come home to you. Yeah, how long until he’s locked away, brook lynn? Peter has money and connections, and until he’s behind bars, he will try to get out of this. I have a fav orto ask you. Anything. Name it. Don’t you think you want to know what it is first? Alright. Because it concerns victor. You want me to get close to victor, to exploit our relationship for information to learn the real reason he’s in port charles? I do. Great minds think alike. You, me, and laura. Laura? Yeah, we had coffee the other day. We discussed charlotte, among other things, and she asked if I wouldn’t mind connecting with victor. How do you feel about that? Well, her concern is just that victor will be a bad influence on spencer. Probably charlotte, and I don’t disagree with that. He’s expressed an interest in getting the cassadines together for some mysterious reason, and he’s already demonstrated a willingness to work with peter august, so I think it’s probably best that we deal with him sooner rather than later. So you’ll do it? I’ve already started.

You alright? Every time I see peter, it makes my blood boil. Because of him, my daughter is suffering. Any news about louise? No, that’s the problem. She’s been missing for months. My husband has been working night and day with law enforcement around the country, and they’ve come up with no leads, only dead ends. It’s as if louise just disappeared into thin air. It’s tearing us up inside, and I can only imagine what it’s doing to maxie. She’s a very strong woman. Well, yes, she is. She’s strong. But this is her baby, her child, and I know that she can put up a brave front, but she’s suffering. I feel like you might think there’s something I can do to help. Anna devane and I are looking into louise’s case personally. You were there the night that louise was born. I sure was, yeah, and I’d be more than happy to go over in minute detail everything that happened for you. Would you go back to pautauk with us? Absolutely. Done. I’m there. Oh, that’d be great. Okay. And you’ll need to convince maxie to come with us. Oh, sorry, no. That’s not something I’m going to do. And I can’t eventalk to mac or robert about peter’s case, because I’ve been avoiding them because I am worried that I’m going to spill the beans. And now on top of that, I’m worried with peter’s money and all his father’s connections, he’s somehow going to wriggle his way out of this when everybody knows he’s guilty. He was seen with the murder weapon. You’re right, everyone knows that peter murdered franco. Unfortunately, gladys corbin was the one who id’d him, and since she initially lied and accused jason morgan and then retracted her statement and accused peter, it’s going to raise some doubts about her credibility. Of course it will.

[ Doorbell rings ] Look, I’m sure the prosecution will come up with some other proof.

[ Door opens ] Ned! Hi. Brook lynn, you’ve been avoiding my phone calls. Hi. Yeah, I was going to call you, but my phone died and I couldn’t find my charger, and last night was — you know what? I will talk to you about this later. Maxie! No, it’s fine.

[ Sighs ] Bye, guys. Chase, I’d like to speak to my daughter alone. Do you want me to stay? That’s okay. I’ll be fine. I’ll be back soon. You know, you could be a little nicer to him. Brook lynn, why does your grandmother think you’re in trouble? You know, I bet that works most of the time, you know? The veiled threats, the cryptic tone. Your dad used to do that, too, if I recall. That must have been some fun dinnertime conversation you two had. Pushing your luck, dr. Finn. And you just came up empty. There’s no way in hell I’m fabricating a medical excuse to keep you here. You’re going to be transferred as planned. Good luck in prison, pete. You’re taking a dangerous chance, doc. I appreciate the concern. I do, but don’t worry about me. After all, I’m the one who can walk out of here. You, not so much. I haven’t been anywhere near franco’s studio since right after he died. You don’t think I’d go there and start a fire? Cameron was home. There was a little incident last night where he ended up with a head injury. Chase was there. You can ask him. And I even woke cameron up a couple of times in the middle of the night to make sure he didn’t have a concussion. I’m not accusing either one of you of anything, okay? I’m just trying to determine when the last time anyone was in franco’s studio. Yeah, I haven’t been able to face that space since the night he was killed. I know I need to give up the lease, but that would involve me moving franco’s things out. Right. I’m sorry, elizabeth, I — I know you’re going through a lot. I don’t mean to add to the pile. Have you questioned peter august? What? His trial for killing franco is coming up. His studio was the scene of the crime. Maybe he set the fire to destroy any evidence.

Wanted to help. I do. But, um… the fact that you’re leaving it up to me to convince maxie to do something makes me think that you already know she’s opposed. And if maxie’s hesitant about going back to pautauk — she experienced real trauma there, so I think it’s valid. Okay, but we just agreed that maxie is strong. I think maxie would be willing to face her fears if she knew it would bring her daughter home. Look, we still agree. I think maxie’s super gutsy. She’s amazing. But it’s got to be her decision whether or not she’s strong enough to go back there. Me, I’m happy to go and help if you want, but I’m not going to convince maxie to do anything she doesn’t want to do. Sorry. You know what? What? I like you. Victor rather conveniently ran into me at the metro court. My first impulse was to shut him out, but I thought better of it, and ever since, we’ve been getting along famously. Really? Have you now? You don’t think he suspects anything? There’s definitely a game being played. I’m not certain it’s chess and not poker, but we’re maneuvering around one another, looking for flaws in each other’s strategy. I’m giving him enough of an opening to keep him interested, but not so much he suspects a trap. Well, it’s always so much harder to investigate someone you know, especially a family member. You don’t suppose it’s just a father’s love of his son, do you? You know, I don’t doubt that victor wants to get to know you better. Well, other than a mutual love of vodka, there really is only one connection. What’s that? A mutual desire to make sure brook lynn is sorry she crossed a cassadine. You and victor are plotting against brook lynn? It was victor’s idea, but teaching brook lynn a lesson is not without its appeal. I understand you’re hurt, but… is revenge really necessary? She lied to me. She did hurt me. Worse still, she hurt my daughter. I’m not going to forgive that. What exa ctlydid granny say? She did more insinuating than actually explaining, but the gist was that something is going on with my granddaughter. But when I cornered her, I wasn’t exactly satisfied with her explanation.

[ Sighs ] Is bailey alright? I can honestly say that bailey is just fine. Okay, well, then, why did you move out of the house so suddenly? I wanted chase to have 24-hour access to bailey, and I didn’t want him to have to move back into monica’s house — and to be honest, dad, I wanted a little privacy, okay? Live-in help is nice, but tripping over family all the time can get stressful. And yeah, I know I’m used to it, but chase isn’T. Mm-hmm. Maybe your grandmother was right about one thing, after all. What now? Are you falling for chase?

[ Knock on door ] What’s going on? You look like you’re thinking deep thoughts. That’s what they pay me for, thinking deep doctor thoughts. Did you get all moved in? Yeah, astonishingly, all of brook lynn’s clothes and accessories found a home.

[ Chuckles ] How’d your date wind up with elizabeth? Despite getting cut short, I had a really good time, and we’re going to do it again, minus the hospital visit and the emergency call. Right. Well, I’m glad to hear it. What else is going on? Hmm? Nothing. Really? Hmm. ‘Cause I can kind of sense you pondering something more than medical mysteries. Come on, talk to me. I don’t — I don’t want to get you involved.

[ Scoffs ] Okay. That was the wrong thing to say, because now I am not going anywhere until you tell me everything. Cameron, I don’t want you to worry about pet er august. He is handcuffed to a bed at gh and under guard. He probably didn’t do it himself. Doesn’t mean he didn’t hire someone else to do it for him. Look, cam, we’re investigating all possibilities, alright? He killed franco. Who else had that motive? Okay, alright, alright. You told dante your theory, and now we just need to let the police do their jobs. Mom. What if this fire hurts the case against peter august? Cam… if somehow, peter august isn’t convicted of murdering franco, he’s got so many other charges hanging over his head, he will never be walking a free man again. You’re really doing this? You’re just gonna sit — you’re not gonna — I don’t have time for this. I do. I have all day. I’m suspended, remember? But my cop instincts aren’T. What aren’t you telling me? Okay, in the spirit of just getting you off my back, I saw peter august earlier. He was running his mouth and… got under my skin a little. That’s because that’s what he does. It’s part of the reason why I haven’t gone to see him yet. You know, I can’t help but relish the fact that peter is poisoned after he poisoned me for weeks and weeks, not to mention essentially blowing up my life. We came close to losing you. I still have nightmares about it. Stay out of my way, finn. My daughter’s out there. And my son is dying downstairs! Give me what I need to save him! I was out of my mind. Chase: I understand. I can’t imagine what you went through. I mean, I know I would have lost it. I did. Where do you think you’re going? To find my daughter. No! Peter was dangling the antidote in front of me. When he threw it off the roof, I just… and you’re walking out! Get off me!

[ Screams ] Finn? What the hell are you talking about? Where have you been? You’re not my only client. And even if you were, I’m an attorney, not a nurse. It’s not my job to sit by your bedside. Well, they tried to transfer me back to pentonville. You have to stop them. And how do you suggest I do that? You’ve been charged with a capital crime, and we have no grounds to oppose the transfer — unless, of course, there’s some kind of pressing medical reason. Is there? I tried that already. I complained of excruciating back pain, but they took an mri, and that’s not going to show anything. I tried to get a doctor to vouch for me, but he’s refused to help. Oh, which reminds me, I want dr. Hamilton finn arrested and charged with attempted murder.

Very happy that I was able to make such a good first impression, but I won’t be pressuring maxie to go anywhere, especially not pautauk. I like that you respect maxie’s wishes. I’m just worried that she doesn’t really know what she wants. Initially, when anna mentioned about going back to pautauk, she agreed, but when I brought it up later, she didn’t want to do it. People are entitled to change their minds, right? It’s not uncommon. Well, maxie sometimes underestimates herself and needs a little bit of encouragement. Yeah. I’m not so sure I’m the one that should be encouraging her. We’re just getting to know each other. I can tell that my daughter trusts you. Really? Really. You and maxie seem to have a real connection. I can tell my daughter’s comfortable with you. Maxie: I am. But what I’m not comfortable with is the two of you talking about me behind my back. I am not falling for chase. But if I was, why — why would that be a problem? Well, it’s a problem if chase doesn’t feel the same way. Oh, wow. You don’t think he could have feelings for me? Why? Because I’m not good enough? Sweetheart, that’s not what I’m saying. Then what are you saying, dad? Chase is a really great guy. You have no idea. Yes, a great guy who, until recently, was married and in love with willow, who could very well be on the rebound. And let’s not forget the fact that you kept his daughter away from him. You know, some men just don’t get over that. Okay. We all know what happened and how it played out. The reality is, is that we are here now. We’re good. We are co-parenting bailey, and we’re good. You said that already. Because it’s true. Look, dad, we already got past all the lying stuff and chase and i are still friends and he’s not the kind of guy to hold a grudge and we’re actually getting to know each other better. How much better? We are both committed to giving bailey the best life possible. Nothing more. I have a lot of work to do. I thought you were speaking generally about peter withholding the antidote, but then you mentioned a roof. What exactly did you mean? Forget about it. You don’t — you don’t have to worry about it. No, I think I do, because clearly, this is affecting you in a big way. Come on, let me in. Maybe I can help. If peter used you — it wasn’t like that! Wasn’t — wasn’t like that. Look… I never wanted to pull you into this. But it’s bound to come out sooner or later, so it’s better that you hear from me. Hear what? The night that peter disappeared from gh, I found him on the roof. I begged him. I begged him to give me the medicine that you needed, the antidote. He refused. And when he threw it off the roof, I just lost it. He started to leave, and I rushed at him and I… I pushed him down the stairs. Finn, I’m so sorry. I’m not getting anything. No pulse, no breath. I think he’s gone. I thought I’d killed him. And even then, I only cared because I thought his death meant you would die to. So there it is. And that’s exactly how it happened. Finn tried to kill me, then walked away, leaving me in that basement. Well, that is an interesting story. Do you have any proof? Like, I don’t know, security camera footage? No. Hmm. The cameras were disabled. So it’s the word of a suspected murderer wanted for capital offenses in multiple time zones against that of a respected physician? Well, the accusations alone should be enough to tarnish the reputation of the good doctor. Let him hash it out in court with his own time and money. He might exonerate himself, but will this hospital or any other want to keep an accused killer on staff? I cannot wait to tell the world what he did to me. Well, you’re definitely not going to do that. I don’t care about the other charges. I want peter to pay for killing franco. Even when peter’s in prison, it’s not going to bring franco back. Yeah, well, it’ll make me feel a hell of a lot better. Can we go to the studio? See if any of franco’s work is salvageable? Yeah, I’m sorry. I mean, not until the arson investigation is concluded. And even then, between the fire and the water and the chemicals that was used to put out the fire, I doubt there’s very much that survived. Look, I’m going to find who did this, okay? That’s my promise to you. Thank you. I’ll keep you posted, alright? Okay.

[ Muffled clatter ] I can’t believe this. Elizabeth: I know, sweetheart. I’m kicking myself for not bringing some of his paintings home. When I was really missing franco, I’d imagine that he was across town, in the studio, painting. Yeah, me too. There was so much of him in that studio. Now it’s all gone. Kind of feels like we’re losing him all over again. I found charlotte’s copy of “wind in the willows.” It was in the trash. I thought she loved that book. She does. She always has. She said she was reading it to bailey, and she’s not interested in reading it without her. I’m so sorry she’s going through that. You, too. It’s hard, and there’s nothing worse than seeing your child in pain. No. But how does revenge on brook lynn help charlotte? Sends a message. You go against me and mine, you pay a price. I’m nothing to be trifled with. Is it so important that the world fears you? Yes. That’s not who we are anymore. That’s not our life. That’s not who you are. Oh, that’s exactly who I am. I thought you knew that.

setthe fire, it’s weird, isn’t it? What do you mean? The timing. First, you found your ring in your locker at work, and now the fire? Those are very different things. They both have to do with franco. I don’t know. It just strikes me as unusual. Weird. Or it’s an indication that you’ve been listening to too many paranormal podcasts. Maybe. I forgot the sugar. Okay, so you got to the basement and…? I left peter in the freezer. I thought I’d killed him. Some months later, the police searched the basement and found the freezer was empty. See, bro, I’m not the hero you thought I was. I am so sorry that you went through that all on your own. I should have kept it that way, but now I’ve got you involved. Stop. I’m glad I know. You can’t keep carrying this on your own. But going back to your encounter with peter — did he threaten to go to the authorities? He was vague, but nothing’s off the table. Alright, well, we’ll deal with that later. We? No.

We’re not dealing with anything. Listen, peter used my condition to control you. I’m the reason that this happened. You only got poisoned because of me. I was the target. You just drank the wrong drink. And we’re lucky that it happened that way. Nothing lucky about it. What would have happened if you were the one that was poisoned? I couldn’t have come up with the cure the way that you did. Finn, you cured me because that is what you do. You save lives. And I’m very grateful that you saved mine. Maybe my veneer of respectability is thinner than you’re comfortable with, but make no mistake, anna — I am what I am, and I’m fine with that. And it worked for you when we were hunting for peter august. Oh, I’m well aware that the world isn’t just black and white. Not mine. It’s gray — as is yours. You’ve never shrunk from bending the rules as you go. No, I know. It’s true. I have to say, though, that at this point in my life, I am trying to make a sincere effort to, I don’t know, respect the rules. Why? For propriety? It’s overrated. You do what you have to do. Yeah, when necessary. Brook lynn’s no threat to you or victor. Is it really necessary to go after her? If I say yes, do we still get to be friends? Dante: Good morning. Hi. Hey. Anna, mind if I have a word? Go ahead. I’ve got a phone call to make. Sorry, did I, uh, interrupt something? Hamilton finn tried to kill me! After you poisoned his brother, a law enforcement officer. Is the world supposed to forget that juicy little detail? On top of the fact that you withheld the medication necessary to save detective chase? Which is in itself attempted murder. Believe me, peter, the last thing you need right now is more charges against you. Yes, but I — no. No. No ifs, no ands or buts. You are this close. Our defense, your only defense, is the pcpd unfairly targeted you, an innocent man, and if you don’t blow everything up by intentionally muddying the waters, you might just beat this murder charge. Mom, what are you doing? Talking behind your back. Mom! That’s not actually what we were doing. No, you don’t have to cover for me. I asked austin to convince you to go back to pautauk. I figured if the two of you were together, it would give you the strength to relive the night that louise was born. This is not about strength, mom. I do nothing but relive it. I have been through that night with the police over and over again. There are nights I don’t sleep because I’m just replaying it in my head, wondering if there was anything I could have done differently to prevent this from happening. There’s nothing else to remember. She seems pretty clear about that. I am. Alright. Okay. Never mind. Thank you. But hey, you don’t need to worry. I’ll go to pautauk on my own. Wait, without me? Yeah, I don’t mind. I’m a little fuzzy about what happened that night and… maybe I’ll remember something that’ll help us find louise.

Everything’s fine.What can I do for you? Um… franco baldwin’s art studio was torched last night. Oh. No one was hurt, but I’m thinking maybe peter august was involved. That’s where he killed franco. That sounds like something peter would do. How can I help? I’m just trying to put a list together — associates, contacts, someone he might have hired to do the job. Yeah, I’ll have that to you by the end of the day. Great, thanks. Did you check with the hospital to see whether maybe peter had any unauthorized contact with the outside? Yeah, I’m going to do all that. Okay. Oh, sure. Thanks, anna. Yeah, no. Uh… hey, um… I know you can take care of yourself — oh. [ Chuckles ] I-I don’t really like sentences that start like that. Yeah, neither do I. I heard about you and valentin at the savoy on new year’s eve. Which is, of course,none of your business. None of my business. 100%. But… as your friend, I don’t want to see you get hurt, so if you are getting involved with valentin, just… be careful. Of course. I’ll see you. So now detective falconeri has concerns? Everyone’s entitled to their opinion. I make up my own mind in the end anyway. Give me your hand. If victor’s plan goes too far, I’ll stop it. How’s that? Define “too far.” Well, you’re going to have to trust me to make that call. Do you trust me? I’m not sure. I should have stayed off the roof. I let my anger get the best of me, and it could have cost you your life. Well, here’s the good news. Well… good is a relative term, but peter’s still alive. He can’t even prove that you pushed him, so legally, your hands are clean. I say, forget about the roof. Don’t let peter mess with your head. Don’t give the bastard the satisfaction, and focus on your triumph instead. What triumph? You did the impossible. You cured me. Okay, one moment of anger doesn’t change that. And, uh, I don’t care what you say, you’re still a hero in my book. I’m sorry for rushing over here and overreacting. Your grandmother’s concern for you was real. And after what happened with leo, I just wanted to make sure that everything was okay with you and bailey. I’m fine. I promise, okay? Now you have to promise to stop glaring at chase. I’ll try, especially now that he’s my quasi-son-in-law. Dad, I told you, there’s nothing going on. I mean, could you imagine the two of us? Like that would ever happen. It could happen. You think? You could see us as a couple? Of course. You share a child. You’ll always have that bond. So when do you want to head to pautauk? So you’re determined to do this? Yep. Okay, fine. Um… I’ll go with you. You will? You sure? Yeah, yeah. I have to. Excellent. I know this will be difficult, but I’ll be right there with you. Yeah. And hopefully, one of us will remember something that will bring louise back home to us. Yeah. If you remember something, I definitely want to be there. I’ve done my job. I’ve read all the evidence the state has against you, and the case is thin. They got no physical proof tying you to the scene of the crime and one very unreliable witness. That’s it. Which means with a little bit of luck, I ought to be able to convince the jury that you’re the victim of your estranged aunt. The anna devane vendetta — the woman just happens to be the former chief of police, as well as the ex-wife of district attorney scorpio. All you’ve got to do, peter, is sit in that courtroom and look penitent, so you do yourself a favor — you cooperate and leave the rest to me. Fine. Whatever it takes to get me free. But just so you know, I do have one other ace up my sleeve, just in case things don’t go quite as smoothly as you hope. God help me. What ace is that? An accomplice. An accomplice? You never mentioned the fact that finn had an accomplice. Not finn’S. Mine. Would I gain any goodwill by naming the person who helped me escape gh last june?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Xander: Sarah. Can’t believe it. You’re really here.

Gwen as sarah: Well, yeah.

Xander: Oh, thank god you’re all right. Thank god! [Takes deep breath]

Xander: [Sighs]

Abigail: Kate.

Kate: What? Oh, hi.

Abigail: I see something’s wrong. Did you get bad news about philip?

Kate: No, actually. Nothing on that front. Have you ever been going about your business and suddenly find yourself face-to-face with two of the people you despise the most in the world?

Abigail: Hasn’t happened in a while. Do I know these people?

Kate: Yeah, well, um, they definitely did damage to your life.

Abigail: So it’s gotta be jake and gabi, right?

Kate: Give the woman a big cigar.

Jake: Did I remember to thank you for saving my life back there?

Gabi: I think so.

Jake: If you hadn’t pulled me off that curb, kate would’ve run right over me.

Gabi: Hell hath no fury.

Jake: No, I do not scorn her, okay? I just–

Gabi: Dumped her? Hey, listen. Watch yourself. She may still have the hots for you.

Jake: Okay, okay. I’ll watch myself if you promise to watch yourself.

Gabi: What does that mean?

Jake: My nephew, johnny, he’s got the hots for you.

Gabi: [Scoffing chuckle]

Demon johnny: Checkmate.

[Sighs] I’m sorry, elvis, but the king had to be sacrificed for the greater good, or in this case, the greater evil.

Judge: Jason smith is your last witness. Am I correct?

Ej: His testimony should be stricken from the record. Every word of it was a lie!

Judge: One more outburst from you, mr. Dimera, and I will cite you for contempt.

Ej: [Sighs]

Belle: He means it. Keep your mouth shut.

Ej: Okay.

Judge: Ms. Trask?

Melinda: I have a sworn deposition from the victim, samantha brady dimera, and i request that it be entered into evidence.

Judge: So ordered. It’s unfortunate that mrs. Dimera didn’t testify in person.

Belle: I would like it entered into the record that defense counsel had no chance to cross examine.

Melinda: Mrs. Dimera did not feel safe enough to be present, your honor. Not with her kidnapper being seated at the defense table.

Belle: Objection!

Judge: Sustained. Please refrain from commentary, ms. Trask. Any further witnesses?

Melinda: No, your honor. The prosecution rests.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]

Abigail: I know how much jake and gabi’ve hurt you, but, I mean, it’s all worked out for the best, right? You’re with roman now.

Kate: And I’m happy.

Abigail: So all’s well that ends well.

Kate: The hortons always say that.

Abigail: No. Actually, that was shakespeare, but.

Kate: Yeah, actually, I know that. My point is that obviously, I do not forgive betrayal as easily as you do.

Abigail: But you got even, though, right? I mean, you voted with ej and chad to fire jake from dimera.

Kate: What are you doing here, anyway? Shouldn’t you be covering ej’s trial?

Abigail: Well, I’m actually working on another story about my cousin, sarah.

Kate: Oh. So what’s up with her? Why did she act like she was with rex this whole time?

Abigail: That’s what I’m trying to find out. I promised maggie. She’s obviously really worried. She thought she knew where her daughter was for the last year and turns out she was wrong.

Kate: Yeah, well, that had to have been tough on maggie.

Abigail: Mm-hmm. And xander is actually really upset, too, so he and I are working together.

Kate: That’s quite an odd couple.

Abigail: Yeah.

[Chuckles] Yeah. But he and i have one very important thing in common, that we both care about sarah and we’re very determined to figure out where she’s been for the last year.

Gwen as sarah: Get off me, you creep!

Maggie: Sarah! Xander has been as worried about you as I have.

Gwen as sarah: Okay, yeah, well, now you can see that I am fine, so you can go back to wherever you came from.

Xander: I’m not budging until you and I talk.

Gwen as sarah: See? Now do you see why I didn’t want to even want him to know where I was? I was afraid this neanderthal would find me and drag me back to his cave.

Maggie: Sweetheart, I know that you changed your mind about marrying xander, but I also know that you were very much in love with him at one time. And he was terribly distraught when you left. The least you can do is give him ten minutes of your time.

Gwen as sarah: Fine. Ten minutes.

Xander: Like, I know I kind of just barged in on you two. Would you mind giving us that ten minutes alone?

Maggie: Um, why don’t we talk about this out in the hall? Don’t you go anywhere. Come on.

Gwen as sarah: [Blows air] Okay. [Takes deep breath] Keep it together, gwen. You fooled the mother. You can fool xander, too.

Chad: Hey.

Johnny: Hey.

Chad: What are yo up to?

Johnny: Oh, just playing some chess against myself. Do you know what happened to nonno’s set?

Chad: Yeah, I replaced it with the one abigail bought. It’s great, isn’t it?

Johnny: You don’t think that’s sort of disrespectful?

Chad: It’s a game.

Johnny: It’s part of who he was.

Chad: All right, look. I didn’t find out stefano was my father until I was in college, so I didn’t grow up hearing about the whole legacy thing like you did.

Johnny: Is that why you didn’t have any problems selling my father down the river in court?

Judge: Is the defense prepared to present its case?

Belle: Your honor, the defense was not offered an opportunity to cross-examine samantha brady dimera and mrs. Dimera’s deposition offered no direct evidence of any connection whatsoever between my client and the kidnapping.

Judge: I’ll take that under advisement.

Belle: Thank you, your honor. It is our contention that the prosecution failed to make a prima facie case against ej dimera, therefore we request that the case be dismissed for lack of evidence.

Judge: So you won’t be calling any witnesses?

Belle: That is correct.

Ej: No. It isn’T. I’ll be testifying. My asthma felt anything but normal.

Belle: Uh, your honor, I need a moment to confer with my client.

Judge: Make it brief.

Belle: Are you out of your mind? Everything is going well. Trask is not making her case.

Ej: Jason smith said under oath that he was taking orders from me and chad got on the stand and backed him up. Their testimony needs to be refuted. I can tell that this judge is not a fan of mine, but I really–

Belle: ‘Cause you keep shooting off your big mouth in this courtroom.

Ej: He holds my future in his hands. If I can’t sway him, then he’s going to find me guilty.

Belle: You are a lawyer. You know if you get up there and testify that trask’s gonna cross-examine you and she’s gonna bring up every terrible thing you have ever done.

Ej: I need to testify on my own behalf.

Belle: It is my professional advice that you not do that.

Melinda: Can we please get on with this? [Scoffs]

Judge: Has the defense reached a decision?

Belle: We have, your honor.

[Clears throat] The defense calls ej dimera.

Chad: Your father swore to me he was being set up, that he had nothing to do with sami’s kidnapping. I believed him. But yesterday, I found out that every word out of that man’s mouth is a damn lie.

Johnny: What do you mean?

Chad: He forced himself on my wife.

Johnny: What?

Chad: In the witness room at the courthouse. I walked in on him and he was slobbering all over her.

[Soft tense music]

Johnny: Maybe it wasn’t what it seemed.

Chad: You don’t think I know what kissing is?

Johnny: What I meant was maybe the feeling was mutual.

Chad: Not a chance. Abigail was appalled. She was sick to her stomach.

Johnny: I’m sorry, I guess I’m just remembering that affair they had back when I was a kid. Mom said they couldn’t keep their hands off each other.

Chad: Trust me, I haven’t forgotten about that. Yesterday, that was all ej. And it was in that moment that i realized that he’s been playing me on every level since the minute he came back here.

Jake: I still can’t believe johnny hit on you.

Gabi: Why not? Guys hit on me all the time.

Jake: Because the horny, little bastard did it right in front of me. And wait, what do you mean guys all the time?

Gabi: Doesn’t matter.

Jake: It does to me.

Gabi: Look, it’s very sweet, but if johnny has a thing for me, we need to figure out a way to use it to our advantage.

Jake: Why?

Gabi: Because he’s voting ej’s shares of dimera’s stock as well as his, so he’s a heavy hitter now.

Jake: Oh, yeah, all right. Look, I see what you’re saying. I don’t like it, but I see it. If johnny’s on our side, it gives us leverage to get victor on the dimera board.

Gabi: And then we’ll be cruising our way to a double takeover. You’ll run dimera and I’ll run titan.

Jake: You make it sound awfully easy.

Gabi: Maggie’s behind us.

Jake: Yeah. Still surprised about that, to be honest.

Gabi: Maggie wants victor to slow down. She’s no dummy. She’s not going to stand in the way of a good idea.

Gwen as sarah: [Sighs] You’re finally back.

Maggie: You know what? I think I’m gonna let you and xander talk privately.

Gwen as sarah: You’re gonna leave me alone with him?

Maggie: Well, I have to speak with henderson about getting your room ready.

Gwen as sarah: I’m not staying.

Maggie: Excuse me?

Gwen as sarah: I got in late last night, so I took a room at the salem inn.

Maggie: Well, you can’t stay there indefinitely.

Gwen as sarah: I’m not. I booked a flight for later today.

Maggie: You just got here.

Gwen as sarah: But… my patients. They need me.

Maggie: Where are you working? I don’t know– where are you living?

Gwen as sarah: I don’t want to say in front of him. I came back so that you wouldn’t worry and now you don’t have to.

Maggie: Then, um… this is goodbye.

Gwen as sarah: Yeah.

Maggie: Okay, then. You need to call me regularly from now on, is that clear?

[Soft tense music]

Xander: She misses you so much. You can’t even spend one more day with her?

Gwen as sarah: [Scoffs] You’re not thinking of her. You’re only thinking of yourself.

Xander: That’s not true, and you know it.

Gwen as sarah: Just say what you came to say. Clock’s ticking.

Xander: Fine. I will.

[Sighs] When you left me that day, I– you sounded like a woman I didn’t even know. And you still do. Why is that? This is the sound of nature breathing.

Jake: I hate to even ask this, but how do you suppose you’re gonna get johnny on our side?

Gabi: I’m gonna flirt with him. Make him think I have the hots for him, too.

Jake: No freakin’ way.

Gabi: He’s a kid.

Jake: He’s old enough.

Gabi: How am I gonna– I’ll have him wrapped around my finger before you know it. And then I’ll be calling the shots.

Jake: Can one of your shots be keep your damn hands off me?

Gabi: Once we have him on the hook, we don’t want to lose him.

Jake: Wait a minute. Are you–are you saying you’re gonna sleep with him to get his vote?

Chad: I’m telling you the truth about your dad. And I’m doing it for your sake. Swear to god.

Johnny: [Sighs] I know this isn’t the first time my dad’s crossed a line he shouldn’t have crossed.

Chad: Abby had to push him off of her.

Johnny: I’m sorry I said that about you guys. I know you guys love each other very much and i shouldn’t have implied that she was fine with what he was doing.

Chad: It’s fine. As long as you still don’t think that.

Johnny: [Chuckles] And my dad had me thinking that he was the real victim here.

Chad: Well, he’s good at that.

Johnny: Yeah. He told me that lucas kidnapped my mom and that you were framing him for it. I guess he wasn’t just lying to you. Sounds like he was doing it to me, too.

Belle: Did you have your wife kidnapped?

Ej: No, I did not.

Belle: You’re under oath, mr. Dimera.

Ej: I’m aware of that.

Belle: Tell the court about the day mrs. Dimera went missing.

Ej: I confronted samantha with evidence that she’d been cheating on me. She denied it at first, but then she admitted it. I’ll admit I was angry. I couldn’t see past her betrayal. But she’s the mother of my children. No matter what she did to me, I never would have chloroformed her and made her my prisoner. I would never separate her from our children, I swear.

Belle: No further questions.

Judge: Ms. Trask?

Melinda: Mr. Dimera, I was so hoping we’d have a chance to chat. You said in your sworn testimony, you stated that you would never chloroform your wife or separate her from her children. Is that correct?

Ej: It is.

Melinda: And has it slipped your mind that you’ve already done both of those things to mrs. Dimera?

Gwen as sarah: I’m the same person I always was.

Xander: No. Something’s off. I kissed you goodnight and the day before our wedding, you told me how much you loved me. But by the morning, you were shagging rex brady.

Gwen as sarah: Yeah. Because I came to my senses about you and he was there. It’s understandable. He’s my ex-husband.

Xander: And you told everyone that you’re running off with him, but you didn’T. You turned on him like you did on me.

Gwen as sarah: Yes, ’cause i realized that I’m in no shape to be with any man, so I told rex that I needed time to figure myself out on my own.

Xander: Well, maggie cares about you deeply. You lied to her about where you were.

Gwen as sarah: I wanted to be left alone and I was afraid that she’d tell you where I was. I was trying to avoid this.

Xander: Oh, so you hate me now?

Gwen as sarah: Yes! You put another woman’s baby in my arms and told me that it was mine! You let me fall in love with her and then you watched as she was taken away from me! How could I not hate you?

Xander: It took time, but you did get past her.

Gwen as sarah: Yeah. I said I did. I even wanted it to be true, but no mother can get over something like that. Not ever. So why can’t you get that through your thick head?

Kate: Okay, so after sarah told rex that she wasn’t going to go with him, this dimera pilot whisked her out of town?

Abigail: Apparently. I mean, he won’t talk to us unless xander or I pay him off. I mean, the guy’s a real operator.

Kate: Okay, but how could someone like sarah commandeer a dimera plane?

Abigail: Well, I think the pilot was freelancing and then he just happened to have access to another company’s old jets? I don’t actually think it had anything to do with dimera enterprises. Although xander did suspect that maybe kristen had something to do with sarah’s decision to leave town. But he dismissed it.

Kate: Why would he do that? I mean, that’s exactly what kristin did to me.

Abigail: Xander mentioned that recently. Okay, so kristin was pretending to be susan and she tried to trick you to leave town, right?

Kate: Oh, my god. All right, so vivian ordered her to break up jake and me. So under the pretext that it was susan, she told me she had a premonition and I should leave. But then when I found that susan was actually kristin, she knocked me out and stuck me down in the tunnels.

Abigail: Oh, good god.

Kate: And at the same time, she puts on a mask so she looks like me and breaks up with jake, who’s a complete idiot. I don’t know why he fell for that, ’cause we were perfectly happy. We were supposed to be going on a vacation.

Abigail: Okay, and so then, he just–he dumps you out of the blue?

Kate: Yeah, yeah. Total 180. Meanwhile, kristin stuffs me in a giant suitcase to ship me out of town.

Abigail: Wait. Did you just say giant suitcase?

Kate: [Laughing] Yeah. Pretty hard to believe, right?

Abigail: Actually, not that hard. My plaque psoriasis…

Abigail: So how did you manage to escape?

Maggie: Abigail, kate.

Kate: Hey. Hi.

Abigail: Where’s xander? Did you bring the money?

Maggie: What money?

Abigail: Well, we found the pilot that flew sarah out of town and he won’t talk to us unless we pay him off. And so xander was headed to your place to see if you’d put up the cash.

Maggie: Well, he never got around to asking me for any money.

Abigail: Well, why not?

Maggie: Well–[Chuckles] I guess it’s not necessary, because xander is now with sarah at the moment.

Gwen as sarah: What you and victor did to kristen and me is unforgivable.

Xander: Yeah, that’s why kristin took so much joy in telling me about you and rex. It was her, not susan banks like I told you.

Gwen as sarah: I couldn’t care less who it was.

Xander: Did kristin get to you? Did she talk you into walking out on me?

Gwen as sarah: That was my decision. So now I’ve answered all of your questions. I have to go check out at the inn.

Xander: Oh, so you can disappear again? How long for this time?

Gwen as sarah: It’s really none of your business!

Xander: You didn’t even say goodbye to maggie. Don’t you care that you’ve broken her heart?

Gwen as sarah: I’m sorry for making her suffer. It’s why I came back. To put her mind at ease.

Xander: Your half-sister died last year. She had to go through that without you.

Gwen as sarah: And I will do better at keeping in touch, so… now you’ve seen me. You can quit obsessing over me and move on with your life. Go be with gwen.

Xander: How’d you know I’m with gwen?

Johnny: [Sighs] Seems pretty clear I need to rethink my relationship with my father. I don’t know if you heard, but he gave me control over his shares at the company.

Chad: Shin told me.

Johnny: You should know that the original plan was to combine our shares and use them to stop you from derailing his agenda.

Chad: You still thinking about that?

Johnny: I’m thinking maybe I lined up with the wrong guy. Maybe I should be working with you.

Melinda: Isn’t it true that you chloroformed your wife, samantha, so that you could leave the country with your children? Your honor. [Scoffs]

Judge: Answer the question, mr. Dimera.

Melinda: Oh, may I remind you you are still under oath.

Ej: I believed my children were in danger.

Melinda: I’ll take that as a yes.

Ej: It was a tense situation to say the least. Samantha had shot me in the head and left me to die.

Melinda: Oh, have the two of you always been in such a violent relationship?

Belle: Objection, your honor.

Judge: Overruled. Answer the question.

Ej: Um… what–what was the question?

Melinda: Have you ever chloroformed your wife in order to take your children by force from her?

Ej: I was trying to protect them. It was an act of love, not revenge.

Melinda: You’ve turned to chloroform once before, haven’t you, hmm? Why don’t you please tell the court about the first time you chloroformed your wife and kidnapped her? Life’s been hard enough.

Jake: Eh.

Gabi: Would you stop acting like a jealous idiot? I’m not gonna sleep with johnny.

Jake: What are you gonna do?

Gabi: It’s called leading him on. I mean, I’ve done it before. I did it with stephen to get control of the company. Worked like a charm.

Jake: Yeah, it worked so well you fell into bed with him and in love.

Gabi: But I am with you now, the love of my life, not some kid. Johnny? Come on. You’re my big, studly, handsome man.

Jake: And don’t you forget it.

Gabi: All right, now that we’re on the same page, I’m gonna go over to the mansion, talk to johnny, feel him up–

Jake: What?

Gabi: Feel him out, feel him out.

Jake: You know what, gabi? This is starting to make me feel anxious.

Gabi: Well, don’T. It’s fine. I’m telling you. I got this.

Johnny: If my dad goes to prison, it’s gonna be a disaster for dimera.

Chad: Vultures like jake and gabi will try to make a power play. You can be on that.

Johnny: Which is why you and I should start working together. What do you say?

Chad: I’m all for alliances, but I don’t want to get burned again.

Johnny: Sounds like you don’t trust me.

Chad: Trust has to be earned, and I barely know you, kid.

Johnny: Look, I know I’m young, but–

Chad: The closest you’ve come to running dimera is sitting on your dad’s lap playing with the keyboard at his computer.

Johnny: I’ll prove myself. You’ll see.

Chad: I’d better.

Johnny: [Chuckles]


Demon johnny: Eh, I can’t blame you for being cautious, chad. You were just about to make a deal with the devil.

Ej: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Melinda: Allow me to refresh your memory. You once chloroformed a pregnant mrs. Dimera and brought her to a warehouse where your brother andre was waiting to extract stem cells from the umbilical cord of your unborn child. Or has that slipped your memory?

Ej: I respectfully invoke my rights under the fifth amendment.

Melinda: That is the first smart move you’ve made all day, mr. Dimera. [Clicks pen no further questions.

Judge: Would you care to redirect?

Belle: Definitely. No matter what may or may not have happened in the distant past, we are talking about the events of august 11th. On the day in question, did you order that your wife be chloroformed and kidnapped?

Melinda: Objection. Asked and answered.

Judge: Sustained.

Belle: No further questions.

Judge: You may step down, mr. Dimera.

[Soft dramatic music]

Belle: I tried to tell you.

Ej: [Sighs]

Judge: Anything further from the defense?

Belle: No, your honor. The defense rests.

Judge: Then we’ll move on to closing arguments.

Abigail: I just–I can’t believe after all this time, sarah just shows up out of the blue?

Maggie: Yeah, I can’t believe it, either.

Abigail: So is she okay?

Maggie: She–she seems a bit distant, I guess. But otherwise, fine.

Kate: Well, I’m glad that breaking rex’s heart isn’t weighing too heavily on her.

Abigail: So did she say anything about where she’s been all this time?

Maggie: She won’t tell me.

Abigail: What?

Maggie: I couldn’t press the issue because xander showed up and said she wanted to talk to her alone. And I agreed.

Abigail: [Sighs] Okay, well, then maybe you’ll get some answers when you go back to the house.

Maggie: Well, I don’t know if she’ll still be there.

Abigail: Why?

Maggie: She informed me that when she finishes talking to xander, she’s going to check out at the salem inn and take a flight out.

Abigail: [Sighs] Did she say where she’s going?

Maggie: No, she’s just, um… she’s just very distant. [Sighs]

Abigail: Okay, that’s really odd.

Maggie: Yeah, I agree. I was just so relieved to see sarah in the flesh. So then I could stop worrying that anything awful had happened to her. [Sighs] But it’s not like her visit put me completely at ease. She’s just–I don’t know. She’s not herself.

Xander: You don’t even know gwen. How could you know she’s with me?

Gwen as sarah: My mom told me right before you came in. She said you and this gwen person are very happy together and very much in love. Is that not true? Are you… not in love with gwen?

Xander: After what you did to me, I didn’t think I could ever love anyone again. Didn’t want to love anyone. Yeah, then… gwen came along and before I knew it, yeah, I love her.

Gwen as sarah: Great. Then go be with gwen. And leave me the hell alone. My asthma felt anything but normal.

[Soft dramatic music]

Xander: Cake? I ask you to marry me and you want cake?

Sarah: I want you to get me some cake.

Xander: Is this your gentle way of shooting me down?

Sarah: It’s my gentle way of asking you to get me some cake.

Xander: I’m on my knees, unemployed, apparently unengaged. I’m not really in a cake kind of place right now.

Sarah: Would you just open the damn box?

Xander: Oh, this is really weird.

Sarah: [Sighs]

Well? Will you?

Xander: Okay.

Sarah: [Chuckles]

Xander: I’ll have some cake.

Sarah: You jerk!

Xander: Of course I’ll marry you! Don’t you remember I was just on my knees trying to get you to marry me.

Sarah: I know, but I just wanted you to know that it was mutual. That I want this as much as you do.

Xander: Don’t think I’ve ever been this happy.

Sarah: [Chuckles] Me neither.

Kate: So mystery solved. Nothing disastrous happened to sarah, except she seems like she’s turned into sort of a bitch. [Chuckles] You want a drink?

Abigail: Oh, this time of day?

Kate: Oh, come on. It’s 5:00 somewhere in the world, right?

Abigail: Okay. I’ll have a glass of wine.

Kate: Yes. [Chuckles]

[Sighs] And at the same time, she puts on a mask so she looks like me and breaks up with jake, who’s a complete idiot. I don’t know why he fell for that, ’cause we were perfectly happy. We were supposed to be going on a vacation.

Xander: Rex’s mum, kate? She figured out that kristen was pretending to be susan, so kristen knocked her out and stuck her in that secret room in the tunnels. Kristen has all these masks that she can use to make her look like whoever she wants to be.

Maggie: I was just so relieved to see sarah in the flesh. So then I could stop worrying that anything awful had happened to her. But it’s not like her visit put me completely at ease. She’s just–I don’t know. She’s not herself.

Abigail: Oh, my god.

Kate: So red or white? Hey, where you going?

Gabi: Hello? Anybody home?

Johnny: What a surprise. You look beautiful.

Gabi: Thank you. And, uh, you look like you’ve been fencing.

Johnny: I was working with my instructor.

Gabi: Mm. Outside?

Johnny: That’s an intense workout.

Gabi: Guess so.

[Both chuckle] You’re sweating and it’s, like, 30 degrees outside.

Johnny: Well, hot as hell for me. So gabi, what brings you by?

Gabi: I thought you’d never ask.

Melinda: So your fate is in the judge’s hands now. Thank you for making my job so easy.

Ej: Go to hell.

[Ej sighs] Well, that was a disaster.

Belle: One of your own making. Arrogant jerk.

Ej: I thought if I was a surprise witness, trask wouldn’t have the time to dig up the dirt on me.

Belle: Oh, my god, ej. She has been after you for years. She prosecuted sami. She probably knows about every jaywalking ticket you’ve ever gotten.

Ej: Okay, made your point.

[Both sigh] Okay, what are my chances?

Belle: [Scoffs] Well, I tried to do as much damage control as I could in my closing trying to prove that this case was different than every other time you’ve chloroformed my sister, but–

Ej: Thank you for trying. I’m aware that I behaved idiotically and made your job more difficult.

Belle: Well, you still have one thing going for you. There really is no direct evidence of your guilt.

Ej: It can’t be. I’m innocent.

Melinda: Well, we’re about to find out if that’s true.

Belle: What does that mean?

Melinda: The judge is gonna rule from the bench.

Belle: [Scoffs] I didn’t expect to get that decision for weeks.

Melinda: Well, you thought wrong. Apparently, he’s already reached a verdict. It’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.

Ej: What do you think this means?

Belle: Well, I’m sure you know a fast verdict usually favors the defendant.

Ej: What the hell are you doing here?

Chad: Well, I heard there was a verdict. Decided I wanted to witness your downfall in person.

Ej: You changed your testimony and I have no idea why.

Chad: You know what you did.

Ej: I assure you, I have no idea–

Judge: I am ready to deliver my verdict. I’m sure you’re all surprised at how quickly I came to this decision, but after a review of the testimony I heard, it was clear. In the matter of people V. Elvis dimera, I find the defendant guilty as charged.

Melinda: Your honor, the people request remand.

Judge: Ms. Brady?

Belle: Your honor, the defendant is already out on bail. The defense requests that he get to remain in his home until sentencing.

Melinda: Your honor, the people object. The defendant has power and wealth at his command. He’s a huge flight risk.

Judge: I agree. Mr. Dimera, you are immediately remanded to salem pd holding where you will await transfer to statesville.

[Gavel impacts]

Gabi: I haven’t been able to stop thinking about our conversation yesterday.

Johnny: The one where you said we have interests in common, yeah?

Gabi: Yeah. I wanted to talk to you about what our partnership might look like.

Johnny: You know, I’ve actually been giving that a lot of thought.

Gabi: Hmm.

Johnny: And I was thinking that it might look something like this.

Maggie: Oh, so how did it go with sarah?

Xander: She made it quite clear that she still hates me.

Maggie: [Sighs] I’m sorry. Do you at least understand what caused her change of heart?

Xander: No. She said the same thing she said a year ago. I just don’t understand her, maggie. I was so sure that there was more to the story.

Abigail: Sarah? Thank god I caught you. Um, we need to talk.

Ava as sarah: Abigail, I’m so sorry, but if I don’t leave right now, I’m gonna miss my flight.

Abigail: Well, just answer one question.

Ava as sarah: What is it?

Abigail: You’re not really sarah, are you?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Hope: You saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Liam: And so– so, you keep saying that this is about brooke, but–

Douglas: It’s true. I saw them.

Hope: Well, you have been watching a lot of movies lately. Are you sure you’re not mixing up your holiday films?

Liam: Yeah. Or just that, or the song, even?

Douglas: No! Santa was there and he was kissing grandma.

Ridge: You were alone on new year’s because of me. You weren’t expecting that.

Brooke: There’s no excuse to have done what I did.

Ridge: What did you do? You made a mistake and you regret it.

[Brooke sighs] Yes, I do. I regret it more than you know.

Ridge: Tell me what I can do. I’ll do anything just to make it better.

Brooke: Ridge. You’ve already been so amazing–

Ridge: No, I’ll go to meetings with you. I’ll go to 100 meetings, I’ll go to 1,000 meetings! But we’re in this together, alright? It’s you and me, forever.

Paris: Wow, I forgot your place is immaculate.

Carter: What can I say? I like things organized.

Paris: It’s refreshing. Not your typical sloppy bachelor pad.

> Carter: Well, I am C.O.O. I’m all about order and precision.

Paris: Clearly.

Carter: Yeah. Everything’s gotta be lined up perfectly, which is why we’re here.

Paris: Yes, my financial portfolio.

Carter: Now, we’re just in the early days, so we’re laying the groundwork. But I think you will be pleased with your performance thus far.

Paris: Carter, I have no doubt. I know I’m in good hands with you.

Carter: What are your thoughts?

Paris: I am blown away. I wasn’t expecting such a jump like this!

Carter: You’re building quite the nest egg for yourself.

Paris: Thanks to you. Wow, you really are the financial genius.

Carter: I have experience with investments but I wouldn’t go that far.

Paris: Okay, don’t be modest, carter. Seriously, your support and encouragement means the world to me. And I’m so thankful for everything you’re doing, not just financially.

Ridge: I’m your husband. I’ll always be here for you.

Brooke: How did I get so lucky? To have a man like you.

Ridge: I don’t know. I’m going to tell you something but you gotta promise me not to use it against me. I need you a lot more than you need me.

Brooke: Oh, ridge. I created another issue for us. And uh… on top of everything else. So I really don’t know how you can even put up with me.

Ridge: I made a commitment to this gorgeous, blonde woman. For better or for worse. We promised to stay loyal to each other, so that’s what we’re doing. We’re going to deal with this as a couple.

Brooke: Yeah. I hope so.

Ridge: You hope so? What are you, nuts? Look at us. Strength in numbers, we got this. I’m not going anywhere.

Hope: Oh, liam and i are a little thrown off because you keep saying that you saw grandma kissing…

Douglas: The man in the red and white hat.

Hope: On new year’s eve?

Douglas: Yes.

Liam: Okay. And you’re– and you’re sure this wasn’t christmas eve because christmas eve is when santa comes.

Douglas: No.

Hope: So it was the night when we had all that yummy food and had the party hats and the noisemakers…

Liam: And they were talking about how the clock strikes midnight. That night?

Douglas: I’m sorry, mommy.

Hope: For what, sweetie?

Douglas: Liam told me not to go up to the house to find my stuffed bunny but I needed him to fall asleep. And then that’s when I saw grandma kissing santa. When they’re sick, they get comfortable anywhere

[Paris sighs] You have been so incredible to me, carter.

Carter: You’re easy to root for.

Paris: No, but you’ve gone above and beyond. It’s not about just the investment stuff or even hooking me up with this job.

Carter: Paris, forrester creations should be thanking you. You’re the perfect fit to run the foundation.

Paris: And I am loving it.

Carter: You seem really happy.

Paris: No, I just don’t know what I would do without your guidance. Not just about the foundation but with zende. I mean, you’ve been very spot on.

Carter: You’re not ready, you’re not ready.

Paris: And you know what makes me realize that I’m not ready for marriage?

Carter: What?

Paris: When I look at you and I can’t stop thinking about our kiss.

Carter: Yeah, that was– that was quite the new year’s surprise.

Paris: And I could say we both got caught up in the moment but I feel like there’s something that’s been building up between us for a long time now. And that’s one of the reasons why I couldn’t fully commit to zende. And here we are, you and me and I… I like it.

Carter: I like it, too.

Brooke: It’s a total mystery why I lost all willpower to stay sober that night. And it just hit me out of nowhere, and I know I keep saying that, but–

Ridge: I know you want to figure out what happened but there is a chance that you won’t figure it out and that’s gotta be okay.

Brooke: But I need to know what the trigger was. I– I really think that that was important. And I’ve been sober for so many years and out of nowhere I just had the urge to drink.

[Sighs] I wish I could go back and erase that night and do it all over again.

Ridge: If I’d been here, it would’ve all been different.

Brooke: I wish you were here with me, more than you even know.

Hope: So you went up to the house all by yourself to get your stuffed bunny?

Douglas: I hope I’m not in trouble.

Hope: Well, douglas, you shouldn’t have been sneaking around the property after dark by yourself and especially without telling someone. Please promise me that you will never, ever, ever do that again. Okay? But we’re not mad at you.

Liam: No.

Douglas: But you’re worried about something.

Liam: Um, no. No, we’re not. Not, not necessarily. We’re just– we’re just kind of trying to figure out what’s– what’s going on here. We do know that grandma didn’t go right to sleep that night.

Douglas: Are you upset because I saw grandma with santa?

Hope: No! No. We’re just trying to figure out how that’s possible.

Liam: Yeah, I mean, because, you know, maybe– uh, maybe you got some of the days confused because, you know, there’s a lot going on during the holidays, right?

Hope: Oh, and we did have a lot of guests going in and out of the house. A lot of people visiting. And you remember it was christmas eve when santa came down the chimney and gave all those presents–

Liam: And you know something. And I confuse christmas eve and new year’s eve all the time. Always get ’em jumbled up.

Douglas: No, it was new year’s eve.

Liam: Uh-huh.

Hope: Okay, well, you– you seem pretty sure about what happened, so I’m going to need you to tell me everything again. So, everything that you remember about that night.

Paris: Part of me felt a little guilty about our kiss.

Carter: Same.

Paris: I know it definitely wasn’t something that you were expecting.

Carter: No, I was at the office. I fully accepted to ring in the new year alone and not kiss anybody.

Paris: Yeah, I kind of threw a wrench in your plans.

Carter: Kind of.

Paris: I mean, it was the biggest party night of the year. You know, I thought you can have a little fun.

Carter: I didn’t say I wasn’t glad to see you.

Paris: Well, when I showed up, I just wanted to thank you for tipping me off about zende’s proposal and then–

Paris: I might have got a little caught up?

Carter: Yeah, we both did.

Paris: And part of me felt bad about the timing but now the circumstances have changed. Zende’s out with a model and I’m here with you…

Carter: You said you can’t get that kiss out of your mind. Neither can I.

Brooke: Ridge, I don’t want you feeling guilty for not being here for me.

Ridge: I shouldn’t have left in the first place.

Brooke: You had to travel–

Ridge: No, no, no. I didn’t have to travel at all. I didn’t have to go. I wanted to go because i wanted to be part of it, I wanted to be the big star. That’s why I left.

Brooke: If I had an inkling that I was going to be in jeopardy, I would have communicated–

Ridge: You are my person. You’re my wife, I should be connected to you. I should– I should know when you’re struggling.

Brooke: Ridge, you haven’t had to worry about me in so long. In years, actually. You couldn’t have predicted this.

Ridge: I just want to take your pain away and I can’t do it.

Brooke: Nobody can. I have to want to make better decisions. And I do. I never want what happened to ever happen again.

Ridge: And I– I will try to be more intuitive, to be… to be here, to be present, I will try.

Brooke: Oh, ridge. I’m the one who’s ashamed for–

Ridge: Stop saying that, please. You made a mistake. And you came clean. You– you told me everything. And that honesty just– I don’t know, it makes me want to be a better person for you. I love you so much.

Hope: Nobody’s upset with you. We just want a better understanding of what you saw that night.

Liam: Yeah. Like, can you give us some… can you give us any more details, big or small, whatever you can remember, anything.

Douglas: Well… I couldn’t sleep without my stuffed bunny. So, I snuck out on a walk went up to the big house. When I reached the living room window, I peaked in. And that’s when I saw it. Grandma kissing santa.

Liam: Uh-huh. Okay. And, um… did you see santa’s face?

Douglas: Not really. Just his hat.

Liam: Did– did grandma or– or anyone else see you?

Douglas: No, nobody saw me.

Hope: Well, douglas, I have to ask, and this does not mean that we don’t believe you but, you have a really great imagination.

Liam: Just– yeah, and– and you know, sometimes dreams can get kind of mixed up with real life, right?

>>Douglas: No. I swear it’s true. I really saw it happen.

Liam: Well, yeah. Okay.

Hope: Okay. Thank you for telling us.

Liam: Yeah. And good job remembering all those, all those details. That was great.

Hope: Yeah. Now don’t we have some homework to do? Hm?

Douglas: Bye, mommy.

Hope: Alright.

Liam: I’ll come check with you in a minute.

[Door closes] What the hell was that? What could he possibly be talking about?

Hope: I don’t know. Who’s to say? I mean, we know ridge didn’t get here until the following day.

Liam: I know. Which raises the question, what– or I guess, who could douglas have seen that night?

Hope: Well, the only way to know for sure is to have a conversation with my mother. Your kindness outshines your highs and lows.

Paris: This… could get complicated.

Carter: I know.

Douglas: Liam?

Liam: ‘Sup, dude?

Douglas: I was trying to do more homework.

Liam: Well, you let me know if you need any help because you are looking at the 1994 spelling bee champion of– hey. What’s going on?

[Douglas sighs] I just can’t stop thinking about what I told you and mommy.

Liam: About that night?

Douglas: I hope you’re not disappointed in me.

Liam: Disappoin– oh, my god. No, absolutely not. We are not disappointed. We are so, so happy and so proud that you came to us and you told us everything. And the last thing that we want is for you to feel anxious about it. Okay?

Douglas: Where’s mommy?

Liam: Uh, she’s having a little chat with grandma.

Douglas: Is mom going to tell grandma that i saw her kissing santa?

Hope: Mom!

Brooke: Oh! God, honey. You startled me.

Hope: Oh, is everything alright? Is… is ridge home?

Brooke: Uh, no. Ridge is at the office but everything’s fine. Thank you for checking on me. I really do appreciate your love and support.

Hope: Well, you know, I– I will always be here for you. Uh, but I do have a question about uh, that night. You did come clean to ridge and me about everything. Right?

Brooke: Are you okay, sweetheart?

Hope: Yeah. Yeah, it’s just that liam and i had a conversation with douglas just now about new year’s eve and– and while we were celebrating that night, he actually forgot his favorite stuffed animal up here.

Brooke: Oh! I haven’t seen it. But I’ll look around and as soon as I do, I’ll just run it down there.

Hope: That’s– that’s actually not the point. Liam that night told him that he was not allowed to come back up here to look for it, but he ignored that and he snuck back up here anyway.

Brooke: He did?

Hope: Yeah, he did. So is there anything that maybe… he shouldn’t have seen?

Brooke: What do you mean?

Hope: Well, it’s just, you know, when he snuck up here, douglas looked through those windows and he saw… you.

Brooke: He didn’t see me drinking, did he?

Hope: No, no. Thankfully, he didn’t mention anything about that.

Brooke: Oh, okay, good. I wouldn’t know how to explain that to my grandson.

Hope: Hm. Well, it’s something that he’s actually been very insistent about for the past few weeks. But liam and I have just, kind of dismissed it because we didn’t fully understand it. And I am not sure we do even now.

Brooke: What is it?

Hope: I wish there was an easier way to just come out and say this. And liam and I, we really did make sure that douglas was 100% certain of this but–

Brooke: About?

Hope: Douglas said he saw you… he saw you kissing santa claus.

Brooke: What?

Hope: He’s 100% sure. He insists that it’s the truth. But he says that he saw you kissing a man in a red and white hat.

Brooke: Oh, oh, my god.

Hope: Did something happen? Mom. If something happened, you need to tell me because we both know that ridge was not home that night. He was still off at work, so– so what happened, mom? Mom, answer me, please.

Interview with Carolyn Hennesy of “General Hospital” on ABC and “Vanished: Searching for My Sister” on Lifetime by Suzanne 1/19/22

This was such a fun call! Carolyn is very sweet and friendly. I really enjoyed chatting with her. You can probably tell that by reading or listening to us gab.

Don’t miss her movie this Saturday, January 22 on Lifetime. She does play a small part, but it’s worth watching. It’s a good suspense drama.

Suzanne: It’s nice to meet you.

Carolyn: Nice to meet you, too.

Suzanne: I want to let you know that my site TVMEG.com has been around for twenty-five years, and I’ve been interviewing TV actors, directors, producers, for about fifteen years. So, I just wanted to let you know… I’m not some rank amateur, even though, today I feel like one.

Carolyn: Jacqueline would never set me up with a rank amateur. I knew that from the start.

Suzanne: Oh, good, good. Just to let you know. I’m also a General Hospital fan, and I’ve been watching since 1984.

Carolyn: Wonderful.

Suzanne: So, I’m very excited to speak with you. I watched the Lifetime movie, it was very interesting. Tell us how this part came about for you.

Carolyn: It’s very simple. I told the director, Timothy Woodward Jr., who directed and is one of the producers of Studio City with Sean Canaan, I said to him one day on the set of Studio City, I said, “What’s our next project? What are we doing together?” And he said, “Well, interestingly enough, I’ve got this feature that’s going in Atlanta,” and I said, “Terrific, when do I show up?” And he laughed, and then he said, “You show up at this time.” So, yeah, I just basically told the director. I said, “We’re going to do something together. What is it?” This was it.

Suzanne: Well, that’s good that it worked.

Carolyn: Right. I mean, it’s so rare that you kind of bypass the audition process. It’s actually becoming a little more frequent for me, but this is one of those wonderful times where he just said, “Yeah, this is your role. Show up on set at this time.”

Suzanne: Well, that’s great. Well, he knew you already. So, why bother having an audition? He knows what you can do.

Carolyn: Yeah, and he knew what I was like to work with. He knew my set behavior and set protocol until it’s over. So yeah, all worked out. I was a proven commodity.

Suzanne: Right. And where was it filmed, and how long did it take?

Carolyn: It was filmed in Atlanta, and I was there for about – I was in Atlanta for I think it was a week all told. Actually, probably more like ten days. I think I was in Atlanta for about ten days. Now, that was my portion. The filming, I think it was a three week shoot. I believe it was a three week shoot.

Suzanne: And all done in Atlanta?

Carolyn: Yeah, well, on the outskirts of Atlanta, in various locales.

Suzanne: All right, great. And how was it playing a police detective, and have you played one before?

Carolyn: Have I ever played a police detective before? That’s a very good question. [laughs] You would think I would remember that. I might have. I just can’t remember at the moment.

Suzanne: No, I understand. I understand completely. Once you’ve done things many, many times. I’ll be like, sometimes I’ll get an interview request. “Oh, I would love to interview that person.” Then, “wait, wait. I interviewed them already, like 2012. Oops. I completely forgot.”

Carolyn: Yeah, people will say, “Carolyn, have you ever played a lawyer?” It’s like, “Have I?” Yes, in fact, I play one now.

Suzanne: Right, and was it very different from playing a lawyer, playing a police detective?

Carolyn: Well, this particular police detective is very stoic, very calm, very skeptical, a little jaded, a little hardened. So, there wasn’t the usual [unintelligible] that I have with Diane Miller or basically any of my other characters, almost any of them. She was a little more grounded, a little more stern, and just hard. You know, she’s seen it all; nothing surprises her. Nothing shocks her; that kind of character. And basically, Jasmine had the bulk of the dialogue in our scene. Kind of, not quite a “yes man,” but she’s the kind of person that doesn’t speak except when she really has something to say. She doesn’t talk for the sake of talking.

Suzanne: Well, that’s good, less dialogue to have to memorize

Carolyn: Oh, this seems really easy. Jasmine does most of the talking. I just say, you know, “Hold up there, Missy,” or something like that. Yeah, it was a little easy.

Suzanne: You just had to sit there and look pretty; that was your role.

Carolyn: I had to sit there and look as pretty as I possibly could, you know, three in the morning in the cold and rainy Atlanta.

Suzanne: Yeah, it can get cold rainy there. We used to live about three hours from there, so, yeah.

Carolyn: It can get cold and rainy, and you think, “Well, listen, this is Georgia.” You just don’t accept cold and rainy out of out of the Deep South, you just don’t. Then, when it happens, you think “Well, my goodness.” You know, it’s like Wisconsin, but the hair and the makeup people were top of their game, as was wardrobe, basically everybody, but the hair and makeup people were really first class. So, I never really had to worry about looking good, looking my best, actually.

Suzanne: Good. Yeah. Funny thing about the Deep South, it’s a large area, and the weather is crazy. I’m in Arkansas, and today it’s in the 60s, and last week we had snow. So, you never know. You just never know.

Carolyn: That’s what they say about the weather. “Just wait ten minutes. It’ll change.”

Suzanne: Yeah, I mean, it’s not like I grew up in Southern California, so it’s nothing like that at all.

Carolyn: And it’s interesting, because it was bitter cold this morning, and when I say “bitter cold,” you know.

Suzanne: No, I know. So, you and Jasmine, you play partners. Did you do to do anything to get to know each other better or to make you work more like partners beforehand?

Carolyn: Beforehand, no. It sort of came afterwards. She’s just a lovely individual. She’s so wonderful, so professional. And again, she’s one of these people that she’s been in the business so long. She’s seen it all. She’s done it all, but she makes cheesecake, and she brought in a couple of cheesecakes for the hair and makeup department, or, actually, that’s what that’s where they landed. Everybody was coming in to get some of Jasmine’s cheesecake. But then we started talking about some of the restaurants and some of the things to do in Atlanta proper, and my favorite restaurant in Atlanta. Maybe it’s the top three in in the United States, for me. It’s called Mary Mac’s Tea Room.

Suzanne: I know where that is. Yeah, I stayed at the hotel right across the street from there.

Carolyn: Well, Jasmine lives catty corner. So, I was there once on my own, as I am want to do, because [they] basically do anything. But after filming, I think I was to leave the next day, and I think it was a Monday, or we had one more day of filming, I can’t remember what it was, but Jasmine met me there. I’ve got pictures of more food on that table. They just kept bringing us stuff. We were ordering it but they just kept loading [up our plates]. Jasmine and I basically ate our weight in fried chicken and tomato pie and broccoli souffle. We just had the best time. And of course she was recognized. She’s recognized all over America. And she’s so gracious, so lovely. Then, every once in a while, somebody would look at me and go, “Oh, I know you, my kids watch Jessie.” I am like, “Thank you. Thank you very much.” Jasmine was like, “She’s on General Hospital.” [laughs] Thank you, Jasmine, my publicist.

Suzanne: You’ve done so much. So, you’re bound to be noticed for something.

Carolyn: But everyone loved A Different World. So, she still gets recognized. And she’s, again, so lovely, and that voice is so unique. [unintelligible] It’s Jasmine’s curse to bear, and she does it with great aplomb.

Suzanne: And this movie has two actors from early 90s hits sitcoms and three soap actors. So, was there any joking around about either of those things?…[Jasmine and] Tatyana Ali, from Fresh Prince.

Carolyn: …Again, one of the more lovely professional, gracious, funny individuals that I’ve ever worked with. She’s just lovely. She and Jasmine were basically the only ones I really worked with.

Suzanne: Tatyana was also on The Young & the Restless and of course, Justin (Bruening) was on All My Children.

Carolyn: That’s right. Again, I didn’t work with a lot of them, or didn’t closely with a lot of them. I worked certainly with Jasmine and Tatyana, but you’re absolutely right.

Suzanne: And I was wondering if you had any joking around about that or about the sitcom thing?

Carolyn: No, no, not really, because, again, I didn’t really work with them.

Suzanne: That’s fine. Did you see Tatyana when she was dressed up as both Jade and Kayla, and did you know it was the same actress?

Carolyn: I did not see her dressed up as Kayla, but I saw photos, I should say that. I saw photos, and yeah, a different person. And from what I understand, she navigated those waters just expertly.

Suzanne: Yes, she did.

Carolyn: She really did. I actually can’t wait to see the film. I’ve not seen it. [laughs] I’ve seen little bits and pieces, but nothing of her as Kayla.

Suzanne: The reason I asked is because I’d read an article where Justin was saying when he saw her dressed up as Kayla [he] didn’t recognize her and didn’t know who that person was and thought it was some other actress and had not been talking to her. Then, once once she spoke, he’s like, “Oh, I’m so sorry. I wasn’t talking to you.”

Carolyn: Right, right. It was a complete and utter transformation. There again, that’s due in large part to the hair and makeup people. They work magic.

Suzanne: Now, I have a question about GH, and you can feel free to say “no comment” or “move along” or whatever. I’m wondering about the mood of the cast and crew right now, because I know you had some actors leave, and there was some public fighting. Has this affected anyone?

Carolyn: You know what’s interesting? I.. actually, I go back to work a week from tomorrow. I have not been there…I was there one day before Christmas, and things were fine. I’ll just say “fine.” The mood was not elevated. The mood wasn’t depressed. Was it a different dynamic onset? Yes, it was, because everyone knew what happened. So, we all have a job to do. Everyone was professional enough not to discuss it, at least the actors that I worked with that day, and I actually only worked with Laura Wright, who is a consummate professional.

Suzanne: I was going to say, it’s probably the scene that was on this week, where Diane and Carly talk around stuff.

Carolyn: Yes. We have become gal pals. Who would have thunk it? Who would have thought that Carly and Diane could become close friends? And yes, we are.

Suzanne: Well, I guess after it’s been long enough.

Carolyn: Exactly, exactly, after long enough. Diane gets to know somebody long enough, and you know, we’re bosom buddies.

Suzanne: Well, I mean, even Sam and Carly were friends, and they did some terrible things to each other a long time ago.

Carolyn: Right! It just goes to show. Then, give it a few years, they’ll change back, and then their twin will come on the scene, and everyone will be confused, and then they’ll be possessed, or they’ll be in a coma.

Suzanne: And touching on that note, I had asked some GH fans on various Facebook groups if they had any questions for you. Many, many fans said to say that they love Diane, and that you’re a great actress. They didn’t say great. They said wonderful and a lot of other compliments I didn’t write down. They just love you, and they wish you had a bigger role in the show. I told them that wasn’t up to you.

Carolyn: No, it’s not up to me, but I wholeheartedly agree. Yes. And tell them, bless them for all of those wonderful comments, and I wholeheartedly agree.

Suzanne: And a few wanted to know if Diane might get another love interest soon. If you can tell us that or if you know anything about that?

Carolyn: Not that I know, but there again, I’m not on the fifth floor, in on those decisions. So, I will say that I did an event with Chris Rogers over the weekend, and Tristan looked at me and said, “We should really get together on the show.” And I said, “You can make that happen. You can go to Frank Valentini and say, ‘Guess what I’d like?’”

Suzanne: That would be an awesome couple. That would be great.

Carolyn: Wouldn’t that be so hilarious?

Suzanne: It would be so funny.

Carolyn: It would be so much fun.

Suzanne: Yes, definitely. I’ll have the fans start a petition.

Carolyn: Start a petition, exactly. Diane and Robert. Yeah. What should happen should be that we should butt heads in court and realize exactly how smart each other is and how fun each other is and how capable, and it should it should progress from there.

Suzanne: Right, or with Martin; that would also be good.

Carolyn: I would love that. I mean, my gosh. Michael Knight, come on. Michael Knight whose skin is better than a twenty-five year old, for God’s sake. I don’t know what he does. He must have a painting going to hell in an attic somewhere. I’m just saying.

Suzanne: Yes, I was so glad to see him join. I know there’re lots of All My Children fans who are so glad to see him join the show.

Carolyn: Yeah. So am I.

Suzanne: This was what I was going to touch on from what we were talking before about Diane and her friends. Sylvia wants to know if Diane will be having any scenes soon with Alexis, and whether they’re still besties.

Carolyn: Well, I do not know if I’m having scenes soon. As I say, I know I’m working a week from tomorrow, but I don’t know what those things are yet, as far as I’m concerned, and I think as far as Diane’s concerned, we’re still besties. Absolutely. You know, you don’t find someone like an Alexis on the show and then kind of let them go. I do wish that the powers that be had let Diane in a little bit more on Alexis’s stay in prison, be a little bit more involved in her recovery. So, I do wish that, but there again, I just stand on my mark and say my lines. [laughs]

Suzanne: You do your job, keep your head down, and hope for the best.

Carolyn: Keep my head down, show up on time, make sure I’m wearing the right shoes, and [unintelligible].

Suzanne: So, here’s a question, again, this wasn’t on the list, but it just occurred to me, because I thought about this before. Why do they have women on TV wear high heels? We can’t see your feet.

Carolyn: Well, honestly, for me, I can only speak for me, it actually helps. It elongates the leg. It makes you stand a little straighter, at least it does for me, and it completes the look. Certainly with Diane wearing a suit, or if you’re wearing a gown, sometimes you will see the feet, that’s number one, but number two is it completes the look, and for this actress, it helps fully flesh out the character.

Suzanne: Well, that makes sense…

Carolyn: And believe me, I wouldn’t I wouldn’t put on slippers or sneakers or low flats if I was in court and you couldn’t see my feet. I would never do it, because you want to hear the “click click click” as Diane walks back to her seat. You want to hear the “click click” as she’s rising and walking into the center of the courtroom. It’s very deliberate, and you know something profound is going to come out because of the way she walks in those heels, and that’s all part of the dynamic of that character in that moment, because you want to be able to use every tool that you’ve got.

Suzanne: Right, it’s part of the TV magic in a way, because fans wouldn’t necessarily notice it, but if it was gone, we’d probably say something is off. We might not notice the “click,” but if it was gone, we’d be, “Huh, what is wrong?”

Carolyn: Exactly. “What’s she got on her feet?”

Suzanne: Another fan, and I think her name is Hueann, loves your red hair and wants to know what your secret is for looking so young.

Carolyn: $200 a month.

Suzanne: Getting your hair done?

Carolyn: [laughs] Yes. My secret for looking so young? Well, that is all attitude. That’s just attitude. If you have the correct attitude for your own brain, then you could walk down the street wearing a gunny sack, and the next day, people would be wearing gunny sacks. It’s all attitude and the way you approach life and the way you approach your age, and etc, etc, etc. So, I’m very lucky that I do have what I think is just a great attitude towards living, and that keeps me young. Also, I work out on a track. So, that keeps me young too.

Suzanne: Right. Yeah, actually, I think you’re almost exactly – your birthday is in February, right?

Carolyn: No, June.

Suzanne: Oh, June, okay. So, you’re about six months younger than I am. I saw that. I was like, “Oh, okay.” That was just funny.

Carolyn: When is your birth date?

Oh, December 3rd, ‘61.

Oh, great.

Suzanne: So, I know what you mean when you talk about forgetting stuff. It seems to get worse as I get older. I’m lucky if I know what I had for lunch yesterday.

Carolyn: Truly.

Suzanne: One last question. Maggie wants to know, which client of Diane’s would you say is the one that causes the most trouble, and which client causes the least trouble? Or what would Diane say?

Carolyn: The most trouble is a toss up between Jason Morgan and Sonny Corinthos, and the least trouble – Does she have a client that causes her the least trouble? There is no such thing as the least trouble in Port Charles, certainly not with Diane’s clients. They’re all wonderful, fabulous train wrecks.

Suzanne: You mentioned the possession thing earlier, that would be great. I know they don’t want to do something like that on GH anymore. I love the stuff in the 80s when they did things like that. I wish they would bring that kind of thing back like when they had the alien. I don’t know if you saw that.

Carolyn: I remember a little bit, and there was an island and someone was a Mayan princess.

Suzanne: Yes. Felicia was a Mayan princess. No, not Mayan; she’s an Aztec princess.

Carolyn: Aztec princess. So sorry. So sorry.

Suzanne: Yes, in fact, I started watching in ‘84, like I said, and it was before Felicia came on, and [there] was something to do with a necklace. There’s always a necklace, right?

Carolyn: There’s always the necklace.

Suzanne: Aztec necklace and she was dressed as a boy and hiding under Frisco’s bed.

Carolyn: As one does.

Suzanne: Exactly, but that wasn’t nearly as odd as when Robin got involved with the Ancient One in the Asian quarter and they discovered Casey the Alien, and he had some magical crystals from his planet, and the bad guys in the Asian quarter had them, something to do with that. I don’t remember the exact story, but it was very – I love that.

Carolyn: …The fans will remember.

Suzanne: Yes, the fans will. Well, I’m a fan but like I said, I have to look everything up.

Carolyn: Oh, of course, yeah, me too. That’s so funny.

Suzanne: That would be great if they did something like that nowadays. I don’t know if the fans would like it. They seem to be more into realism.

Carolyn: They do seem to be, don’t they? But it would be a little fun.

Suzanne: It would be.

Carolyn: It would be a boat load of fun. A boat load of fun, I’ll tell you that. Especially If Diane saw an alien, and no one believed her.

Suzanne: Well, you would think of all people you might believe Diane, because she’s so no-nonsense and down to earth.

Carolyn: That’s absolutely true. That’s absolutely true. It’s like if Diane walked in and said, “I just saw a spaceship.”

Suzanne: Or they’d wonder what she drank — if she drank too much at her lunch.

Carolyn: Exactly, and, you know, Diane’s been known to do that. It’s that simple.

Suzanne: Yeah, I guess the closest they’ve come in modern times was when they sort of touched on the vampire thing, but they were sort of cagey about it. It’s like, did it happen? Didn’t it happen. And it was Lucy, so nobody believed her.

Carolyn: Well, no, I mean, would you? I mean, let’s face it, she’s an alien herself.

Suzanne: Yeah, exactly. Well, she was a vampire hunter. Well, I appreciate your talking at me.

Carolyn: I loved it. Let’s do it again.

Suzanne: All right, and I am telling everybody about the movie, and I hope you get lots of people watching, and we look forward to the next one.

Carolyn: Thank you so much. I really appreciate it. We’ll talk at you again, okay?

Suzanne: Thank you. Bye bye.

Carolyn: Thank you so much. Bye bye.

Here is the audio version of it.

Billy: I wanted to personally thank you for that text message that you sent to lily congratulating her on her new position at Chancellor Industries.

Adam: Yeah. I understand that there’s another round of kudos I should bestow. Heard you were just named COO.

Billy: That is correct, yes. I didn’t get a text message from you.

Adam: Mm.

Billy: Seriously, though, thank you very much for reaching out to Lily in that way. It’s appreciated. You can’t imagine how surprised I was when I heard you did so.

Adam: Oh, I’m sure I can.

Billy: No. Trust me. You can’t.


Billy: Welcome to your new office, madam CEO.

Lily: Thank you. Same office I had when I was running ChanceCom.

Billy: Yeah, that’s true. It’s a little bit different, you know. Thanks to Nick and my wheeling, dealing mother, you now have the entire building, not just this floor.

Lily: I know. Well, it’s nice. I kind of like it. Nice to have something familiar when there’s been so many changes.

[ Gasps ] Aww. Flowers and liquor?

Billy: Don’t look at me.

Lily: No? Oh, it’s from Jill congratulating us on our first day. The scotch is for you, of course.

Billy: Well, she knows me well.

Lily: “I believe in you both and know that you will accomplish great things. Now go kick some ass. Jill.”

Billy: That’s my mother for you. We better listen to the lady and enjoy this last moment of peace we will have in these hallowed halls.

Lily: Very sweet. It is weird, though, coming back to an old office to start a new job, right?

Billy: Yeah. It’s like returning to the scene of a crime.

Lily: Well, I got to say, we did some great things here.

Billy: And in the copy room. Do not forget the copy room.

Lily: No, I could never forget the copy room.

Sharon: Yes, absolutely. Thank you for braving the museum with me.

Rey: Are you kidding? I loved it. Besides, I figured I should learn more about art since noah’s living here now. Although none of those paintings were as beautiful as you are.

Sharon: Aww.

Rey: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: Oh, hey, Nick.

Nick: Hey.

Sharon: What are you doing here?

Nick: You guys look like you’re in a pretty good mood.

Rey: We are.

Sharon: Having some French food, walking through a museum — it can do wonders for your mind-set.

Nick: Well, don’t mind me. I’m just sitting here minding my own business, waiting for Noah.

Sharon: Oh. What are you two meeting about? The job offer?

Nick: Hey.

Noah: Hey.

Sharon: Oh, great. Now both of you can fill us in.

Noah: On what?

Sharon: On what you’re meeting with your dad about.

Noah: Well, first off, nosy. Secondly, I think I need to talk to dad in private for a sec.

Sharon: Okay. No problem.


what’s going down out there.

Sharon: Nope. I already know. Noah accepted Nick’s offer.

Rey: You could hear that from in here?

Sharon: I can tell by the look on Noah’s face. I’m happy he and Nick are bonding like that. It means that Noah’s gonna stick around, hopefully for a very long time. It just feels like life is exactly the way that it should be.

Lily: I’ve just been throwing myself into work so much trying to get ready for the big day, i didn’t realize how tense I was.

Billy: Well, I’m glad I could help you relax.

Lily: So, now can I ask questions?


Billy: Well, first and foremost, I apologized, and i also confessed about my ill-fated plan to get back at victor and Adam for everything they did to us. I was also very clear that my change of heart came because of your guidance, and she was very grateful for that. She honestly believes that you are my guardian angel.

Lily: Well, I appreciate the credit, but I do think that you’re underselling the strength it took to turn the other cheek to the Newmans.

Billy: Mm.

Lily: So, just tell me — did your mom accept your apology?

Billy: My mother and I making up usually involves a bone-crushing hug while she calls me an idiot. So, by that definition… yeah, we healed.

Lily: So, are you coming to Chancellor as COO?

Billy: Yes.

Lily: [ Laughs ]

Billy: I am your COO, with, of course, my mother’s blessing.

Interview with Tatyana Ali, Justin Bruening, Carolyn Hennesy and Treach

TV Interview!

Lifetime panel

Interview with Tatyana Ali, Justin Bruening, Carolyn Hennesy and Treach of “Vanished: Searching For My Sister” on Lifetime by Suzanne 1/10/22

This was an intriguing movie with many different actors. The panel was for Lifetime with quite a few panels that day. This was the only one where I didn’t get to ask a question. It’s okay, though. There were many great questions asked. I enjoyed seeing this great cast. Jasmine Guy is also in the movie, and she’s fabulous. I was just happy to see Justin Bruening again (as he was great as Jamie on “All My Children“) and Carolyn Hennesy (she plays Diane on “General Hospital“).  Tatyana does a fine job with her dual role as sisters Kayla and Jada. Also, I didn’t know that “Treach” was the leader of the rap group Naughty By Nature. Stay tuned soon for my one-on-one interview with Carolyn Hennesy!

MODERATOR: Hi, everyone. Welcome to our “Vanished: Searching For My Sister” panel. Today we have Tatyana Ali, Justin Bruening, Carolyn Hennesy and Treach. Thank you guys all for being here.


MODERATOR: Our first question is an email question, and it comes in asking for the entire cast how was this movie standout compared to other projects that you’ve all acted in?

TREACH: Well, for me, I had the honor of working with a legend like Tatyana right there. I’ve grown up, I was watching her. You know the history so just to have the pleasure of getting on there is really when you know Jasmine Guy and Justin, these great actors, you got to understand you’ve got to really come here prepared, because they are legendary these guys here. So it was just a whole different vibe with just knowing that you were in great hands. You know when you step on a set with production and everything, you see how it’s rolling you’re like, yeah, this is one of them right here.

CAROLYN HENNESY: Well, for me, it was really cold in Atlanta, so there was that. My trailer had no heat so that was fun, but it was all the more exciting to get inside when we did have those scenes inside. Yay! And be able to work with Tatyana, and Tatyana on this panel is the only one that I worked with, because my scenes were with her and Jasmine pretty much primarily. And so Jasmine’s just everything you would expect her to be. She’s a hoot-and-a-half, and she’s so, she’s a consummate professional as is Tatyana, but Tatyana was not quite as funny, because she was threatened with she’s going to be killed at any moment, her character. So she was very, very serious, and we were kind of coming at her with don’t do what we all know you’re going to do and that is double as your sister. So it was really a tremendous amount of fun to keep it fun and light on the set, and then when the cameras rolled we were just in it, but I was pretty much cold all the time, so that was me.


Tatyana Ali as Kayla, pretending to be JadaJUSTIN BRUENING: I didn’t have that problem but working with Tatyana was amazing. Watching her transform into two different, entirely different people was just phenomenal. I mean, there was even a moment when she did her whole transformation into Kayla, and we were sitting across from each other, and like we had on masks on and stuff, but I didn’t know it was her, because I’d never seen her. I mean, I just worked with her twenty minutes before that, and I was like sitting across from this woman. I’m like, “Who’s that?”


JUSTIN BRUENING: “They just let anybody in on this set. It’s just strange.”

TATYANA ALI: I remember that. We had such a rapport during the whole shoot, and I was like, “Wow, is he having a bad day? Like what, why are you staring at me that way?”

JUSTIN BRUENING: I’m shy. I was shy. I didn’t know who that was. It’s a new person. Nobody introduced me. I felt bad. Yeah, it was great.

TATYANA ALI: For me, what was different about this one, the cast is so amazing, and the crew, and I just had an incredible time working with everybody. Treach, there was a point when it was one of the scenes in the trailer when you kind of grip me up in the club, and I don’t even know if you noticed, but I had to take a moment afterwards, because you are scary. When you want to be. You’re so like kind and wonderful, and you just scared the bejesus out of me, like, for real. Yeah, just working with everybody was amazing. Especially, I was so excited when I read the script, like the fact that it’s based on a true story and that this really happened, that a woman really went undercover as her twin. All of that was so exciting. I love the notion of not allowing your loved one to remain a statistic or not be cared about; that someone would fight so hard to make sure that her sister, who has been through addiction, been through all these things, that her life mattered. I really loved that and so into it, and then right before I started working I was like, “Oh, my God. What did I get myself into?” But y’all saved me, so thank you.


MODERATOR: Thank you, everybody. Our next question is from Rick Bentley.

QUESTION: Thank you very much. Tatyana, do actors when they start their career think, “Oh, boy. I hope one day I get to play a twin?” Or “Oh, my God. I hope I don’t ever have to play a twin?”

Kayla (Tatyana Ali) and her ex-husband, played by Phillip Mullings, Jr.TATYANA ALI: (laughs) Maybe, “Oh, my God. I don’t ever have to play — I hope I don’t ever have to play a twin.” I, actually, no, it was really a wonderful sort of like experiment, and especially in the kind of truncated schedule that we have there were days when I went back and forth between the sisters, and it can make you feel a little bit crazy. Like our makeup and hair department and costumes, they were really like a refuge for me on those days. But it’s fun. You kind of have to use literally like everything you know or think you know or might guess at to, not just create two people, but then also a relationship, the relationship between them, the history between them. That was really fun, actually. It’s kind of like you might not hope to do it, but it could be a dream to be able to do it.

QUESTION: A quick follow-up. Did you color code your script or did you put markers to who you were for the day?

TATYANA ALI: I’m super anal. I always color code my script even if it’s one person.


TATYANA ALI: So, yeah, I keep a binder. I’m not at the iPad script yet phase —


QUESTION: Thank you very much.

MODERATOR: Thanks, Rick. Our next question is from “Right On! Digital.”

QUESTION: Hello? Can you hear me?




QUESTION: Okay. Hi. My question is for Tatyana. We’ve known about your work for years, and we’ve publicized you many times in “Right On! Magazine.” You talked about the fact that it can make you a little crazy playing two characters in one. What was it like actually preparing for a role where you’re actually playing two people, because that’s an enormous amount of responsibility to have that much dialogue. So what was your secret to actually preparing?

TATYANA ALI: Just, you know, it’s similar to the way I prepare for just playing one role except you just double it. They both have their, they’re sisters, so they have their shared pasts, and they’re sisters, so they also have things that only the two of them know that the rest of the world don’t know. They both have their own wishes and desires and hopes and dreams, and so it’s all it’s the same, it’s just more. And so even with when I was kind of prepping for it and doing my own rehearsals like I just tried to kind of schedule the time, so there’d be like days working on one, and then days working on the other so I didn’t have to get confused. And then their style, like, for me, once I start, once I am in their hair, in their clothes, and then all of the things, their walk or their body language, all those things that I tried to –I always work on those things but just with twins it’s like I was trying to differentiate them a little bit more, but once all those pieces come together then it’s kind of like they kind of, it meets somewhere. I felt that I guess that’s how it happened.


QUESTION: All right. Well, thank you. Hi, Treach.

TREACH: Hello.

QUESTION: And one —

MODERATOR: And — Oh, sorry.

QUESTION: May I ask Treach a question while we have him?

MODERATOR: Of course.

QUESTION: Okay. Treach, hi.

TREACH: Hello.

QUESTION: Cynthia from “Right On! Magazine.” What was it like on the set? Is there a fun fact you can tell us about, something that we wouldn’t know because we weren’t there?

TREACH: Yeah. I mean, there’s certain times you get into stuff, like you’ll have a scene. Like, for instance, I was rolling upon a motorcycle. I’m not even half good on a pedal bike.


TREACH: So I got to really show my acting skills. I had to find, okay, the clutch and when I do should I look (audio glitch @ 00:38:07), but I know people that ride motorcycles and stuff, so I had to do what I knew they do without doing nothing.


TATYANA ALI: You look good on that bike.

TREACH: Thank you. But the movie magic makes things happen. So I know, like, certain, like I said, it was certain things that I naturally don’t do at all. When I do a movie it’s so fun to me because I got to really make sure they think I know what I’m doing.

QUESTION: Okay. Thank you.

TREACH: You’re welcome.

MODERATOR: Thank you. Our next question is from Abbie Bernstein.

QUESTION: Sorry. It took me a second to find my unmute. Good morning. Thank you all for doing this. Question for anybody or everybody who’d like to take it. Is there any difference between doing a Lifetime thriller and a different network or an indie film with thriller subject matter and the same schedule and budget? Is there anything specific to working for Lifetime?

CAROLYN HENNESY: There’s a lot more blood on an independent.



CAROLYN HENNESY: It’s the truth. It’s the absolute truth.

JUSTIN BRUENING: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

CAROLYN HENNESY: And the things you can get away with on an independent thriller, um hm. Yeah, the Lifetime audience would pass on that, so.


CAROLYN HENNESY: But (audio glitch @ 00:39:33).

QUESTION: Is there —

TREACH: You know, for this type of movie, like, everyone goes to Lifetime to watch these types of movies, but the masses, one thing that’s beautiful about Lifetime, the masses is going to tune in.


TREACH: They have a long list of anything that like what comes on Lifetime I’m here. So it’s just a honor to be on Lifetime, because you know that following, that cult following is goin’ be there for you.

Justin Bruening and Tatyana AliJUSTIN BRUENING: Well —

QUESTION: Is there any — Oh, sorry.

JUSTIN BRUENING: I was going to say that’s a tough question, because I think our Director Tim Woodward sort of filmed it like an independent, like I think he went for that.


JUSTIN BRUENING: So I think there’s some stuff that ended up on the cutting room floor, speaking of blood.


JUSTIN BRUENING: There was a little bit, but — a lot — but, yeah, I mean, I think that — I think he really — that I think he set that as his benchmark, and he went for that, but I think that we had to tone it down for Lifetime, for that audience, but I think we filmed it the same way we would film an independent film.

TATYANA ALI: Yeah. I’ve worked with Lifetime many times now, and I always feel really supported by the network and by the executives. That’s always a really good feeling, and they stay in communication while you’re filming and that’s awesome but to also know, it’s true, there’s this very wide audience, and there’s something about Lifetime. Like I always think about my cousins and my family because I know they’re going to be watching it. Like I can’t, I got to make them proud. Like they are (audio glitch @ 00:41:09), everyone’s going to be texting me while it’s on, and there’s something about that that’s actually really special.

CAROLYN HENNESY: I think also with it being Lifetime — very often in an independent you don’t get the justice that you want at the end. Things are left unresolved, and sometimes you can leave the theater or whatever you’re viewing it on unsatisfied, that’s not going to happen with a Lifetime thriller. Things are going to be wrapped up. Everyone’s going to be happy and vindicated, and you’re going to end up being thrilled during the movie, but all will be well at the end pretty much, or maybe not this with this one. I don’t know —

QUESTION: Does it affect your performances in any way?

CAROLYN HENNESY: Say that again?

QUESTION: I’m sorry. Does it affect your performances in any way either knowing there isn’t going to be that much blood or that everything is going to be resolved at the end? Do you play with more fervor and less frustration? Or do you perform it the same way you would perform a more ambiguously ended material?

CAROLYN HENNESY: Whatever is honest for the character is how you go.


CAROLYN HENNESY: So it doesn’t matter if it’s a soap opera.

TATYANA ALI: That’s right.

CAROLYN HENNESY: Or a Lifetime or a Darren Bousman “Saw” franchise films. It’s all, for me, for me. I mean —

JUSTIN BRUENING: Yeah, I agree with that.

TATYANA ALI: Yeah, ditto.

QUESTION: Thank you very much.

TREACH: You’re welcome.

MODERATOR: Thank you. Our next question is from Luaine Lee.

QUESTION: Tatyana, which twin was more difficult to play and why?

TATYANA ALI: Huh, you know, I guess I would have to say Jada, because I certainly get to play her more, but often during the film, and it sometimes led to a little bit of confusion when we were filming, I spent a lot of time playing — I spent a lot of time — I’m sorry. Did I leave? I spent a lot of time playing Jada pretending to be Kayla, and those were probably the most challenging parts, playing someone you love, kind of Jada putting on Kayla’s wigs, going out into Kayla’s world which, you know, she’s heard of but never really participated in, just the longing to know what’s happened to her sister and to find her. I think Jada pretending to be Kayla was the most challenging, for sure.

QUESTION: Were you scared to do it?

TATYANA ALI: I was excited at first and then as I got closer and closer, yeah, I was scared, but that, I’ve come to learn that that’s — If I’m not intimidated by what I’m trying to do then I’m almost like not that excited about it, so nerves to me are like a good sign that I’m stretching myself. So, yeah, I was.


MODERATOR: Thank you. We have time for one more question and that’s going to be from Noah Wilson.

QUESTION: Hello, everyone. It’s so great to be here with you guys. Tatyana, I do want to ask you, taking on two roles could you ever see yourself doing it again?

TATYANA ALI: (laughs) I had a lot of fun doing it. I would love to do it on a project where we had more time. It was hard to switch on the same day. That was really hard to go back and forth on the same day, and when I was prepping for it I saw a lot of films where actors played multiple characters and twins and sisters and even read a lot of interviews of the process, but we had three weeks, so. I would. I would try it again. I thought it was — I was exhausted when it was done, but it was thrilling, and I really liked playing a character like Kayla, even for the short period of time that I do in the film. I’ve never really, I’ve never been able, given the chance to play somebody like her, and she really stole my heart.

QUESTION: Yes. Well, I enjoyed you in “A Picture Perfect Holiday” and I cannot wait to see you in “Vanished: Searching For My Sister.” Thank you so much, guys.


TREACH: Thank you.


MODERATOR: Thank you so much to all the panelists and everyone that attended. Please tune in to “Vanished: Searching For My Sister” on January 22nd at 8/7 Central. Thanks you guys.

TATYANA ALI: Love you, guys. Good to see.

TREACH: Thank you.

CAROLYN HENNESY: You too, honey.


TREACH: Love y’all. Peace.

Update written by Joseph

Xander enters the Kiriakis Mansion and is shocked to see “Sarah” with Maggie. Xander can’t believe she is there and says thank God she’s alright as he grabs her and hugs her while Maggie smiles.

Abigail remains at the Brady Pub as Kate walks in. Abigail greets her and senses something is wrong, so she asks if she got bad news about Philip. Kate says there’s nothing on that front. Kate asks Abigail if she’s ever gone about her business and suddenly found herself face to face with two of the people you despise the most in the world. Abigail says it hasn’t happened in awhile and asks if she knows these people. Kate confirms they definitely damaged her life so Abigail correctly guesses she means Jake and Gabi.

Gabi and Jake walk through the town square as Jake thanks Gabi for saving his life by pulling him out of the way or else Kate would have walked right through him. Gabi brings up Jake dumping Kate and tells him to watch out because she might still have the hots for him. Jake then brings up Johnny having the hots for Gabi.

Devil Johnny sits at the chess table in the DiMera Mansion. The Devil remarks that EJ had to be sacrificed for the greater evil.

EJ’s trial continues in the court room. Judge Barnes asks Melinda if Jason Smith was her last witness. EJ complains that his testimony should be stricken from the record. The judge warns EJ about having another outburst. Melinda presents the judge with a sworn deposition from Sami. He notes that it’s unfortunate that Sami didn’t testify in person. Belle argues that means she had no chance to cross examine. Melinda explains that Sami didn’t feel safe enough to be present with her kidnapper. Melinda declares that the prosecution rests.

Abigail knows how much Jake and Gabi hurt Kate, but says it all worked out for the best since Kate is with Roman now. Kate admits that she is happy. Abigail says that all is well that ends well. Kate remarks that Hortons always say that. Kate adds that she obviously doesn’t forgive betrayal as easily as Abigail does. Abigail points out that Kate got even by voting with EJ and Chad to fire Jake from DiMera. Kate asks what Abigail is doing here anyways and not covering EJ’s trial. Abigail informs her that she’s actually working on another story about her cousin, Sarah. Kate asks what’s up with Sarah and why she acted like she was with Rex this whole time. Abigail says that’s what she is trying to find out as she promised Maggie since she’s really worried after not knowing where her daughter was for the past year. Abigail adds that Xander is really upset too so they are working together. Kate calls that quite an odd couple. Abigail says they have one very important thing in common in that they both care about Sarah and are very determined to find out where she has been.

“Sarah” pushes Xander off of her and calls him a creep. Maggie argues that Xander has been as worried about her as she was. “Sarah” says that Xander can see that she’s fine so he can go back where he came from. Xander refuses to budge until they talk. “Sarah” says this is why she didn’t want anyone to know where she was so Xander couldn’t come drag her back to his cave. Maggie knows she changed her mind about marrying Xander but also that she was very in love with him at one time and he was terribly distraught when she left, so the least she can do is give him ten minutes of her time. “Sarah” agrees to ten minutes. Xander asks Maggie if they can have that ten minutes alone. Maggie suggests they talk about this in the hall and takes Xander out of the room. Gwen tells herself to keep it together as she fooled Maggie, so she can fool Xander too.

Chad enters the living room of the DiMera Mansion and pours a drink as he greets Johnny and asks what he’s up to. Johnny says he was just playing chess against himself and asks if he knows what happened to Stefano’s chess set. Chad responds that he replaced it with one that Abigail bought and says it’s great. Johnny questions Chad not thinking that’s disrespectful. Chad calls it a game. Johnny argues that it’s part of who Stefano was. Chad talks about not finding out that Stefano was his father until he was in college, so he didn’t grow up hearing about the whole legacy thing like he did. Johnny asks if that’s why Chad had no problem selling EJ down the river in court.

Judge Barnes asks if the defense is prepared to present it’s case. Belle complains that they were not offered the opportunity to cross-examine Sami while her deposition offered no direct evidence between EJ and the kidnapping. The judge agrees to take that under advisement. Belle thanks him and contends that the prosecution failed to make a case against EJ, so she requests the case be dismissed for lack of evidence. Belle confirms she’s not calling any witnesses but EJ stands up and declares that he will be testifying. Belle says she needs a moment with her client so the judge tells her to make it brief. Belle turns to EJ and asks if he’s out of his mind. EJ argues that Jason Smith said under oath that he was taking orders from him and then Chad’s testimony needs to be reviewed. EJ says that if he can’t sway the judge, then he’s going to find him guilty. Belle warns EJ that if he testifies, Melinda will cross-examine him and she will bring up every terrible thing he has ever done. EJ insists that he needs to testify on his own behalf. Belle advises him not to do that. Melinda asks if they can get on with this. Judge Barnes asks if they’ve reached a decision. Belle responds that they have and calls EJ to the stand.

Chad tells Johnny that EJ swore to him that he was innocent and he believed him but then he found out that every word out of EJ’s mouth is a damn lie because he forced himself on his wife in the witness room at the courthouse which he walked in on. Johnny thinks back to that moment and suggests maybe it wasn’t what it seemed and the feeling was mutual. Chad says there’s no chance as Abigail was sick to her stomach. Johnny brings up Abigail and EJ’s previous affair. Chad assures that he hasn’t forgotten about that but yesterday was all EJ and it made him realize that EJ has been playing him on every level since he got back.

Jake can’t believe Johnny hit on Gabi. Gabi says guys hit on her all the time. Jake complains that Johnny did it right in front of him. Gabi wants to figure out how to use it to their advantage since Johnny has EJ’s shares and is a heavy hitter now. Jake agrees that it gives them leverage to get Victor on the DiMera board. Gabi says they will cruise their way to a double takeover where Jake runs DiMera and she’ll run Titan. Jake says she makes it sound easy. Gabi points out that Maggie is behind them which Jake is still surprised by. Gabi explains that Maggie wants Victor to slow down, so she won’t stand in the way of a good idea.

Maggie and Xander return to the living room. Maggie decides to let Xander and “Sarah” speak privately. She questions leaving her alone with him. Maggie says she has to speak with Henderson about getting her room ready but “Sarah” says she’s not staying as she got a room at the Salem Inn and then has a flight later today. Maggie points out that she just got here. “Sarah” responds that her patients need her. Maggie questions where she’s working and living. “Sarah” doesn’t want to say in front of Xander and says she came back so Maggie wouldn’t worry and now she doesn’t have to. Maggie starts to cry as she realizes this is goodbye. Maggie orders “Sarah” to call her regularly from now on a she hugs her. Maggie then exits the room. Xander questions “Sarah” not spending one more day with Maggie when she misses her so much. “Sarah” remarks that Xander is only thinking of himself. Xander says that’s not true. “Sarah” tells him to just say what he came to say. Xander brings up when Sarah left him that day and says she sounded like a woman he didn’t even know and she still does. Xander questions why that is.

Jake asks Gabi how she thinks they are going to get Johnny on their side. Gabi says she’ll flirt with him and make him think she has the hots for him too. Jake says no way but Gabi insists that she’ll have him wrapped around her finger before he knows it and then she will be calling the shots. Jake questions if Gabi is saying that she’s going to sleep with Johnny to get his vote.

Chad tells Johnny that he’s telling him the truth about EJ. Johnny knows it isn’t the first time EJ crossed a line he shouldn’t have crossed. Chad adds that Abigail had to push him off of her. Johnny apologizes for saying that about Chad and Abigail as he knows they love each other very much and he shouldn’t have implied that Abigail was fine with what EJ was doing. Chad says it’s fine as long as he doesn’t still think that. Johnny says EJ had him thinking he was the real victim here. Johnny adds that EJ told him that Lucas kidnapped Sami and Chad was framing him for it. Johnny guesses EJ wasn’t just lying to Chad, but to him too.

Belle asks EJ if he had Sami kidnapped. EJ says he did not. Belle reminds him that he’s under oath which EJ says he is aware of. Belle asks EJ to tell the court about the day Sami went missing. EJ recalls confronting Sami with evidence that she had been cheating on him and she denied it at first but then she admitted it. EJ admits he was angry and couldn’t see past her betrayal, but she’s the mother of his children, so no matter what she did to him, he never would’ve made her his prisoner or separated her from her children. Belle decides there are no further questions. Judge Barnes then calls upon Melinda. Melinda brings up EJ swearing that he would never chloroform his wife or separate her from her children. Melinda asks if it slipped his mind that he’s already done both of those things.

“Sarah” tells Xander that she’s the same person she always was but Xander says something is off. Xander brings up kissing her goodnight on the day before their wedding and she told him how much she loved him, but by the morning, she was with Rex. “Sarah” claims that she came to her senses and Rex happened to be there. Xander brings up how she told everyone that she was running off with Rex, but she didn’t, and she turned on him too. “Sarah” says she realized she’s in no shape to be with any man, so she told Rex that she needed time to figure herself out on her own. Xander argues that she lied to Maggie too. “Sarah” says she wanted to be alone and was afraid that Maggie would tell Xander where she was since she was trying to avoid this. Xander questions her hating her now. “Sarah” brings up how Xander switched her and Kristen’s babies. Xander says it took time, but she got past that. “Sarah” claims she only said she did and wanted it to be true, but no mother can ever get over something like that. She asks why he can’t get that through his head.

Abigail tells Kate about Ned flying Sarah out of town on a DiMera jet but he won’t tell them more unless they pay him off. Kate questions how someone like Sarah could commandeer a DiMera plane. Abigail explains that Ned was freelancing and had access to an old DiMera jet. Abigail mentions that Xander did suspect that Kristen had something to do with Sarah disappearing but he dismissed it. Kate questions why he would do that when it’s exactly what Kristen did to her. Abigail says that Xander mentioned that recently and talks about how Kristen pretended to be Susan to trick Kate in to leaving town. Kate explains how Vivian ordered Kristen to break up her and Jake, so she pretended to be Susan, but she found out and then Kristen knocked her out and stuck her in the tunnels. Kate adds that Kristen put on her Kate mask to break up with Jake. Kate calls Jake an idiot for falling for that when they were perfectly happy and going on vacation. Kate says that Kristen stuffed her in a giant suitcase to ship her out of town. Abigail recalls Ned mentioning “Sarah” having a large suitcase as well. Abigail questions how Kate managed to escape. Maggie then enters the Pub and greets them. Abigail asks where Xander is and if she brought the money. Maggie questions what money. Abigail explains that they found the pilot who flew Sarah out of town but he won’t talk unless they pay him off, so Xander was going to see if Maggie would put up the cash. Maggie reveals that Xander never got around to that because he’s now with “Sarah” at the moment.

“Sarah” complains about what Xander and Victor did to her and Kristen. Xander brings up Kristen being the one who told him about Sarah and Rex. Xander asks if Kristen got to her and talked her in to walking out on him. “Sarah” calls that her decision and says now that she answered his questions, she has to go check out at the Salem Inn. Xander questions how long she’s going to disappear for this time. “Sarah” calls it none of his business. Xander points out that she didn’t even say goodbye to Maggie and asks if she doesn’t care that she’s breaking her heart. “Sarah” claims that she came back to put Maggie’s mind at ease. Xander brings up “Sarah’s” half sister dying last year and how Maggie had to go through that without her. “Sarah” says she will do better with keeping in touch and tells Xander to quit obsessing over her and move on with his life. “Sarah” tells him to go be with Gwen. Xander then questions how she knew that he’s with Gwen.

Johnny tells Chad that it seems pretty clear that he needs to rethink his relationship with EJ. Johnny brings up EJ giving him control of his shares in the company. Johnny admits the original plan was to combine their shares to stop Chad from derailing EJ’s agenda. Chad asks if he’s still thinking about that. Johnny responds that maybe he lined up with the wrong guy and maybe he should be working with Chad.

Melinda brings up EJ chloroforming Sami so he could leave the country with his children. EJ explains that he believed his children were in danger and calls it a tense situation as Sami shot him in the head and left him to die. Melinda asks if they’ve always had such a violent relationship. Melinda asks EJ again if he chloroformed his wife. EJ says he was trying to protect his children and calls it an act of love, not revenge. Melinda argues that EJ turned to chloroform before and asks him to tell the court about the first time he chloroformed his wife and kidnapped her.

Gabi tells Jake to stop acting like a jealous idiot and assures that she’s not going to sleep with Johnny. Jake asks what she’s going to do then. Gabi says she will lead him on like she did with Stefan to get control of the company. Jake points out that she ended up in bed and in love with Stefan. Gabi insists that she’s with Jake now, the love of her life, not some kid in Johnny. Gabi decides she’s going to the DiMera Mansion to feel Johnny out. Jake feels anxious but Gabi assures that she’s got this.

Johnny tells Chad that if EJ goes to prison, it will be a disaster for DiMera. Chad bets that Gabi and Jake will try to make a power play. Johnny says that’s why they should start working together and asks what Chad says. Chad is all for alliances but he doesn’t want to get burned again. Johnny questions Chad not trusting him. Chad says trust has to be earned and he barely knows him. Chad remarks that the closest Johnny has come to running DiMera is sitting on his dad’s lap. Johnny assures that he’s going to prove himself. Chad says he better as he finishes his drink and exits. The Devil remarks that he can’t blame Chad for being cautious since he was just about to make a deal with the Devil.

EJ says he has no idea what Melinda is talking about. Melinda talks about EJ chloroforming a pregnant Sami and brought her to a warehouse where his brother Andre was waiting to extract stem cells from his unborn child. Melinda questions that slipping his memory. EJ invokes his rights under the fifth amendment which Melinda calls his first smart move and says there are no further questions. Belle decides to redirect. Belle says no matter what may or may not have happened in the past, they are talking about August 11. Belle asks if EJ ordered Sami be kidnapped on that date. Melinda argues that the question was already asked and answered. Belle says no further questions, so the judge allows EJ to step down. Belle tells EJ that she tried to tell him and declares that the defense rests. Judge Barnes announces they will move on to closing arguments.

Abigail can’t believe after all this time that Sarah would just show up out of the blue. Maggie can’t believe it either. Abigail asks if she’s okay. Maggie says she seems a bit distant but otherwise fine. Kate remarks that she’s glad breaking Rex’s heart isn’t weighing too heavily on her. Abigail asks if Sarah said anything about where she has been all this time. Maggie says she won’t tell her and she couldn’t press the issue because Xander showed up and wanted to talk to her alone. Abigail suggests she can get answers when she goes back, but Maggie is not sure she will still be there since “Sarah” told her that she is taking a flight out tonight and didn’t say where she was going. Maggie repeats that she’s very distant. Abigail finds it really odd. Maggie agrees but says she was just so relieved to see Sarah in the flesh, so she could stop worrying that anything awful had happened, but her visit did not put her completely at ease. Maggie states that “Sarah” just isn’t herself.

Xander argues that Sarah doesn’t know Gwen, so he questions how she could know she’s with him. “Sarah” claims that Maggie told her right before he came in and that they are very happy together and in love. “Sarah” asks Xander if that’s not true or if he’s not in love with Gwen. Xander responds that after what Sarah did to him, he didn’t think he could ever love anyone again and he didn’t want to, but then Gwen came along. Xander confirms that he loves her. “Sarah” tells him to go be with Gwen then and leave her the hell alone as she walks out of the mansion, leaving Xander disappointed. Xander looks sadly at a framed photo of Sarah on the mantle and flashes back to when he and Sarah got engaged.

Kate tells Abigail that the mystery is solved as nothing disastrous happened to Sarah other than seemingly turning in to a bitch. Kate offers Abigail a drink. Abigail agrees to a glass of wine so Kate goes to the bar. Abigail thinks back to Kate telling her about Kristen putting on a Kate mask to break up with Jake. Abigail then recalls Xander telling her about Kristen having all these masks to make her look like whoever she wants to be. Abigail thinks back to Maggie saying she saw Sarah in the flesh but that she wasn’t herself. Abigail then comes to a realization and rushes out of the Pub as Kate calls out to her, asking where she’s going.

Gabi goes to the DiMera Mansion and enters the living room, asking if anyone is home. Johnny comes in and calls this a surprise, noting that she looks beautiful. Johnny mentions that he just got done practicing fencing. Gabi notes that he’s sweating when it’s cold outside. Johnny calls it hot as Hell for him as he removes his shirt and asks Gabi what brings her by. Gabi says she thought he’d never ask.

Melinda tells EJ that his fate is in the judge’s hands now. Melinda thanks him for making her job so easy. EJ tells her to go to Hell. Melinda then exits the court room. EJ tells Belle that it was a disaster. Belle blames EJ and calls him an arrogant jerk. EJ thought if he was a surprise witness, Melinda wouldn’t have time to dig up dirt on him. Belle reminds EJ that Melinda has been after him for years. EJ says she’s made her point. EJ asks what his chances are. Belle says she tried to do as much damage control as she could. EJ thanks her for trying as he’s aware that he behaved idiotically and made her job more difficult. Belle says he still has one thing going for him as there really is no direct evidence of his guilt. EJ says there can’t be since he’s innocent. Melinda returns and announces they are about to find out if that’s true since the judge is going to rule from the bench. Belle didn’t expect the decision for weeks but Melinda reveals he’s apparently already reached a verdict. EJ asks Belle what she thinks this means. Belle informs him that a fast verdict usually favors the defendant. Chad walks in so EJ questions what the hell he’s doing here. Chad says he heard there was a verdict, so he decided he wanted to witness EJ’s downfall in person. EJ has no idea why Chad changed his testimony. Chad says he knows what he did but EJ assures he has no idea. Judge Barnes returns and announces he’s ready to deliver his verdict. He says he’s sure they are all surprised at how quickly he came to this decision, but after reviewing the testimony, it was clear. Judge Barnes announces he finds EJ guilty as charged. Belle requests that EJ get to remain in his home until sentencing. Melinda objects, arguing that EJ is a huge flight risk. Judge Barnes agrees and orders EJ to immediately report to a holding cell where he will await transfer to prison.

Gabi tells Johnny that she hasn’t been able to stop thinking about their conversation about having interests in common, so she wanted to talk to him about what their partnership might look like. Johnny responds that he’s been giving that a lot of thought and says he was thinking it might look something like this, as Johnny then grabs Gabi and kisses her.

Maggie returns to the Kiriakis Mansion and asks Xander how it went with “Sarah”. Xander says she made it quite clear that she still hates him. Maggie asks if he at least understands what caused her change of heart. Xander says no and that she said the same thing she said a year ago. Xander doesn’t understand it as he was so sure that there was more to the story.

“Sarah” walks through the town square with her bags packed. Abigail stops her and says they need to talk. “Sarah” says she’s sorry but she’s going to miss her flight if she doesn’t leave now. Abigail asks her to answer one question as she then asks if she’s not really Sarah.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Devon: Welcome to the world, little man. They just want to make sure you’re happy and healthy.

Chance: Is he sick? Is this, like, a sick thing? Should I call the doctor?

Devon: No, no, no. I don’t think he’s sick. It’s just — I think he’s tired.

Chance: He isn’t going to sleep.

Devon: Because he’s a baby, you know? He gets fussy and you need to calm him down.

Chance: You got something that’ll make him eat?

Dominic: [ Crying ]

Devon: I don’t have any tricks, but let me try.

Chance: Here you go.

Dominic: [ Crying ]

Chance: It’s okay. Hey, it’s okay, bud.

Devon: Hey, hey, hey.

Dominic: [ Crying ]

Devon: It’s okay. Hey.

Dominic: [ Wailing ]

Devon: Hey, hey.

[ Speaking indistinctly ]

Dominic: [ Wailing ]

Devon: Oh, no. No, you don’t want that. Okay, okay. Let’s get you up. Let’s get you up and let’s just relax. There you go.

Chance: Oh, you did it.

Devon: There you go.

Chance: In her eyes, I’m the perfect husband and the perfect father.

Devon: You don’t see yourself like that?

Chance: Not even close.

Devon: Okay. Well, I mean, the fact that she does — that’s a good thing, right?

Chance: It’s just not who i am, man. I let her down before our baby was even born. I mean, I failed her.

Devon: I don’t know how you figure that you failed anybody. You’re home. You made it. You’re alive. You know, you have a brand-new son. You got a great wife.

Chance: Do I deserve it? You know, I made commitments to abby and dominic. I’m gonna do everything that i can to try to live up to them. But — but the question is, can I?

Devon: [ Sighs ] God, I wish I could talk to you, dad. You wouldn’t just tell me what to do, either. You would — you would break everything down, have me look at it from every angle… find the heart of the matter.

[ Sighs ] And then you’d let me figure it out on my own.

[ Sighs ] Oh, god, I just want to hear you say that you get it, that you get why I’m doing what I’m doing, even though it’s not goa be easy. ‘Cause I’m just trying to do the right thing for my son.

Chance: Hey. You want some coffee?

Abby: No. I didn’t get any sleep, but i feel like I’m gonna jump out of my skin if I have caffeine.

Chance: What can I do to help you?

Abby: Chance, explain it to me. Please. Devon is ready to take legal action to get shared custody of our son, and you don’t want to fight him on it? He has you questioning your ability to be a good father, which is wrong and, frankly, disgusting. You just went through something, something terrible, and he wants you to just bounce back? Healing from trauma takes time. Learning to parent takes time.

Chance: I know, and his point is dominic doesn’t have time to sit around and wait for me to figure this out.

Abby: Our son is thriving. It’s just — it takes a while for us to get established as a family, and I feel like all of this is just unraveling.

Chance: I’m sorry, abby. I’m — I’m sorry. I just feel that our best option is to find some common ground here, you know, find something that everybody can live with, because I don’t see devon backing down. I really don’T. And this has potential to get really ugly.

Abby: Okay, fine. Then let it get ugly because I’m not gonna agree to something that could profoundly disrupt our son’s life. We had a document. We had it drawn up. We all agreed to it. We went into this with our eyes wide open. And now devon wants to change it and he’s taking it this far? You know, it — it breaks my heart, but I am gonna fight for my son. And I need something from you.

Chance: Anything. You know that.

Abby: I need to know that you’re with me, that you’re on my side.

Chance: Abby, of course. I always am.

[ Smooches ]

Lily: Good morning.

Billy: Hi.

Sharon: Good morning, you two. What can I get you?

Lily: Uh, I’ll have an espresso, please.

Billy: That’s right. Take it up a notch. It’s her first day as ceo of chancellor industries.

Sharon: [ Gasps ] That is so wonderful. Congratulations.

Lily: Thank you. Well, it’s billy’s first day, too. He’s joining chancellor as coo so it’s a big day for both of us.

Sharon: Okay, then I’ll congratulate both of you. Clearly you make an excellent team. And you seem very relaxed for such a momentous occasion.

Billy: Well, it’s nice to look towards the future now, putting everything that happened at chanccomm behind us.

Lily: Mm-hmm. Uh, on that note, I think we should go back to the office?

Billy: No, we don’t have to rush out just because adam got here.

Lily: Well, I would like to ignore him.

Billy: We could do that. But what kind of message would that send? Medusa lived with a hideous curse.

Chance: You going somewhere?

Abby: I just, um — I need to get some air. Dominic’s asleep, and louise is upstairs.

Chance: Hey, I feel like what I said earlier upset you. And I’m –I’m really sorry.

Abby: No, I’m — I’m not angry at you. It’s devon. Insinuating that we’re failing our son — it’s pretty insulting.

Chance: Abby, that doesn’t reflect on you at all. He’s got a problem with me.

Abby: [ Scoffs ] And clearly amanda’s willing to do whatever it takes to get devon whatever he wants, like using everything we say as a weapon.

Chance: I know. I should have never opened up to him. That’s what started this whole thing.

Abby: You confided in devon. You shared what happened to you in spain. And now he’s using that as an excuse to void our agreement.

Chance: Yeah, he sure is, but it’s still my fault.

Abby: Don’t say that. Look, I know you don’t want things to get adversarial, and I love you for it, but devon has gone too far. And I think this is gonna be impossible. I have to go.

[ Smooches ]

[ Door opens ]

[ Footsteps departing ]

Chloe: You’re late. But I forgive you. I just got an update on sally.

Chelsea: How’s her trip to new york going?

Chloe: Well, believe it or not, she’s got a full day planned — interviewing colin lacasa, big score, then lunch at choon-hee park’s atelier, and then dinner with the winner of that reality show, um, about streetwear designers.

Chelsea: Great. And she’s getting it all on video?

Chloe: Just like we planned. Oh, no. What’s wrong? Spill, because we both know we’re not getting down to business until you do.

Chelsea: It’s nothing.

Chloe: Okay, well, the floor is all yours until your breakfast arrives. I ordered your usual. So, are you gonna tell me, or do I have to guess?

Chelsea: Can we just change the subject, please?

Chloe: It’s adam. And don’t tell me I’m wrong because I have seen this movie. This is exactly why I told you to avoid him like the plague. Anything or anyone who throws you off your game is just detrimental to our plans.

Chelsea: Trust me, I know how you feel about adam. You harp on and on about it every chance you get.

Chloe: Well, goodness knows you’ve given me boatloads of opportunities.

[ Sighs ] You are my best friend. I would do and have done anything — anything for you. Why can’t you just do this one simple thing for me?

Chelsea: You were right. Again. About everything. And if I’d just listened to you in the first place, I wouldn’t be stuck in this mess.

[ Sighs ]

Billy: Glad I ran into you.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Why is that?

Billy: I wanted to personally thank you for that text message that you sent to lily congratulating her on her new position at chancellor industries.

Adam: Yeah. I understand that there’s another round of kudos I should bestow. Heard you were just named coo.

Billy: That is correct, yes. I didn’t get a text message from you.

Adam: Mm.

Billy: Seriously, though, thank you very much for reaching out to lily in that way. It’s appreciate. You can’t imagine how surprised I was when I heard you did so.

Adam: Oh, I’m sure I can.

Billy: No. Trust me. You can’T.

Sharon: Adam.

Adam: Mm-hmm?

Sharon: Can I get you something?

Adam: Um, I’m just gonna have a regular coffee. But, uh, in honor of their first day, I’d love to buy the leaders of chancellor industries their coffee.

Billy: Well, isn’t that nice? Celebrating lily’s much-deserved new position.

Adam: I am sure she will do great things there.

Billy: I’m assuming whatever lingering animosity the newmans may have will be solely directed at me? You and victor will let lily thrive without any games or interference? Is that right?

Adam: Absolutely.

Billy: Glad to hear that.

Sharon: Here you go.

Adam: Thank you.

Lily: Thank you, adam, for the coffee.

Adam: My pleasure.

Billy: You have a good day. I know we will.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Bye.

Sharon: I hope at least some of that little performance was sincere. One by poise is our first pad

Chelsea: I was holding out hope that adam and I could find our way back to each other for a reason. I mean, he’s a different man now. And I’m in a better place. And no matter what, something in the past has always brought us back together, so why should this time be any different?

Chloe: That’s why you kept ignoring my words of wisdom?

Chelsea: [ Sighs ] I thought it was our destiny. And even though adam made it clear I shouldn’t think that way, I still felt like he was connected to me, too, and he felt that, but he was just fighting it because he felt responsible for driving me to do all the terrible things I did.

Chloe: [ Scoffs ] Well, he was. Sorry. Forget I said that. Just tell me what happened last night.

Chelsea: Well, we went to get drinks, which I thought was a good sign, but he was very blunt and very cold when he told me there was no future for us and that I should just stop fooling myself.

Chloe: Oh, honey, that must have been hard for you to hear.

Chelsea: Yeah. Oh, and then it gets worse. He also made it clear that we cannot continue to work together professionally if I can’t let go of the past.

Chloe: I’m sorry.

Chelsea: [ Scoffs ] You know, before, when I was, you know, battling sharon for first place in his heart or he was prioritizing his feud with billy and victor over our relationship, I still always felt like we had an unshakeable bond. It could withstand anything. But I was wrong. Adam has made it clear it’s broken. For good.

Adam: Look, I appreciate that you want to give me the benefit of the doubt, but, as with everything with me and billy, it’s complicated and it’s convoluted.

Sharon: Only because the two of you are so hell-bent on keeping it going.

Adam: Well, I really do wish lily the best.

Sharon: Well, that’s really nice. I’m glad. Um, I should get back to my barista.

Adam: Will you — sharon, will you just wait a minute? There’s just something that i wanted to ask you. Uh, connor has been talking to me about how much he’s been going running with faith, and he mentioned that he texts her when he wants to hang out at the stables. So, I hope he hasn’t been taking up too much of her time.

Sharon: Um…no, of course not.

Adam: Glad to hear it. Living at the tack house does have its drawbacks, but I’m grateful to have extended family around for my son’s sake.

Sharon: I can hear the wistfulness in your voice. You can’t hide how important connor is to you.

Adam: He’s my focus right now. Him and newman media.

Sharon: I’m really glad that you and victor managed to build something. And I know how important that is to you. Regardless of what happens to the company, I do hope that you two will be able to maintain this level of trust.

Adam: Me too.

Sharon: And I can’t help hoping that you would just let go of this thing with billy. Don’t you two realize how much better your lives would be if you weren’t battling?

Adam: Mine would be a lot simpler. Trust me.

Sharon: Well, then walk away. And use this battle as a gauge so that you can see how far you’ve come instead of using it as an excuse to go back to bad behavior.

Adam: Are you gonna give him the same advice?

Sharon: Yeah, actually, I’m going to. You know, you and billy — you’re a lot more alike than either want of you want to admit.

Billy: Welcome to your new office, madam ceo.

Lily: Thank you. Same office I had when I was running chanccomm.

Billy: Yeah, that’s true. It’s a little bit different, you know. Thanks to nick and my wheeling, dealing mother, you now have the entire building, not just this floor.

Lily: I know. Well, it’s nice. I kind of like it. Nice to have something familiar when there’s been so many changes.

[ Gasps ] Aww. Flowers and liquor?

Billy: Don’t look at me.

Lily: No? Oh, it’s from jill, congratulating us on our first day. The scotch is for you, of course.

Billy: Well, she knows me well.

Lily: “I believe in you both and know that you will accomplish great things. Now go kick some ass. Jill.”

Billy: That’s my mother for you. We better listen to the lady and enjoy this last moment of peace we will have in these hallowed halls.

Lily: Very sweet. It is weird, though, coming back to an old office to start a new job, right?

Billy: Yeah. It’s like returning to the scene of a crime.

Lily: Well, I got to say, we did some great things here.

Billy: And in the copy room. Do not forget the copy room.

Lily: No, I could never forget the copy room.

Billy: Look, this is walls and furniture, okay? You are the ceo of chancellor industries, with all the power and the possibilities in your hand, and you’re gonna do amazing things no matter where you are.

Lily: Thank you. With your love and support.

Billy: Anytime, anywhere. Not that you’ll need it. You are capable of changing the world all on your own.

Lily: [ Chuckles ]

[ Knock on door ]

Devon: Someone told me there’s a ceo in here.

Lily: Yes. Hi.

Devon: Is it alright?

Lily: What are you doing here?

Devon: Brought you a gift, boss lady.

Lily: Oh, thank you!

Devon: How you doing?

Lily: Good.

Devon: Yeah?

Lily: Better that you’re here.

Devon: Oh, well, I just came to wish you luck and tell you that everyone who loves you that can’t be here today is very proud of what you’ve accomplished, so…

Lily: Thank you.

Devon: You’re welcome. It’s a good day. Welcome to the ceo club.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Ceo club. Thank you.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: [ Laughs ] (Man 1 vo) I’m living with cll

Chloe: We are each other’s ride-or-die, through thick and thin and everything in between. I just want you to be happy.

Chelsea: And free of adam.

Chloe: Free of your skewed idea of adam, the rose-colored version of your past where he’s some tragic hero or some misunderstood loner with a heart of gold, to stop making excuses for his dangerous behavior. He can’t just blame everything on his traumatic childhood or his father’s manipulations. At some point, you have to make the choice to break free, like you did when you left your grifter life behind. And you built real relationships and focused on making a better life for your son.

Chelsea: Which is what adam did, too.

Chloe: It’s what adam wants people to believe he’s doing. I told adam in order for this to be successful that we can’t be distracted by personal baggage or vendettas, but adam’s gonna be adam.

Chelsea: So, what are you saying? That I should just give up, walk away from the company?

Chloe: No, that is not what i want at all. We need to focus on the work, expanding it to include your incredible designs and making newman fashion an entity on its own so it can survive if adam manages to screw it all up.

Chelsea: [ Sighs ]

Chloe: So, yes, you’re right. I — I wanted you to break your addiction to adam… to let go of the hope that things are miraculously going to change.

[ Sighs ] I know your heart is breaking. My heart is breaking for you. Chels, this is not the end of something. This is just the beginning. You have your power back. And now we — we are in control of our own destiny.

Adam: You aren’t the only one to compare me to billy recently.

Sharon: Ohh. And how do you feel about that?

Adam: [ Sighs ] It is enough to make a guy go all-in on changing his ways.

Sharon: You and billy have both come a really long way. You both have full lives. You know, that’s proof that people can heal, and that’s really inspiring.

Adam: [ Chuckles ] Come on. I have only inspired people to do terrible things.

Sharon: Oh, excuse me. Abby.

Abby: Hey.

Sharon: Are you okay? You look a little stressed.

Abby: Um, I’ve been better.

Adam: Hi, abby. Well, I better get back to the office before they send out a search party. It’s good to see you, abby. I hope things turn around for you soon.

Abby: Thank you.

Adam: Take care, sharon.

Sharon: You too. Um, do you want to talk about it? I’m all ears. We can sit down.

Abby: Thank you for offering to listen, but I really don’t want to get into it right now.

Sharon: Are you sure? Because I think if you didn’t, you would have just told me that everything’s fine.

Abby: [ Sighs ] I just — it’s stuff at home. You know, I have a new baby and a husband who’s been through a lot.

Sharon: I understand. Well, we can just sit down and not talk about it. Or I can get you something to eat.

Abby: I am kind of hungry.

Sharon: Alright. See? I can’t solve all the world’s problems, but I can fix that.

Nate: I cannot believe it took us two whole days of shopping to find lamps that you liked.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] Admit it. Those lamps were a huge improvement from those purple ones you had.

Nate: Just so you know, i kept the receipts, just in case.

Elena: Don’t you dare return my lamps.

Nate: Never. I want you to love everything about your new home.

Elena: I already do. Living with you has changed my life for the better.

Nate: Mm, speaking of changes, I heard jill may have found a new buyer for chanccomm.

Elena: Uh-oh.

Nate: What? Is that bad news?

Elena: Well, the new owner might not want to continue with askmdnow. Or they might not want to retain me as the face of the platform.

Nate: Okay, before you get too worried, let me tell you who the new buyer is.

Elena: Okay. Tell me.

Nate: Newman/locke. I might be able to pull a few best-man strings for you.

[ Both laugh ]

Elena: Very funny.

Nate: No, but seriously, ashland has been a big supporter of the hospital. And I’m sure he believes in the mission of askmdnow. And at the very least, it’s good P.R.

Elena: Well, you are certainly more confident than i am about its fate.

Nate: Be honest, elena. Are you sure you don’t want this site to fold?

Lily: Aww, thank you.

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: But just so you know, behind every ceo is a very dedicated coo.

Devon: Oh, of course. Of course. Congratulations to you, too, billy.

Billy: Yeah. Thank you. But let’s be honest. This is her show. I’m just here to help her fulfill her vision. It’s gonna be nice to be out of the limelight a little bit. Speaking of, I should head back to my office and actually get some work done.

Lily: Okay.

Billy: You let me know if you need anything, boss.

Lily: Yes.

Devon: It’s good to see you, man.

Billy: You too.

Devon: See you.

Lily: Don’T.

Devon: Don’t what? You gonna blame me for having reservations about the guy after everything that happened at chanccomm?

Lily: Well, kindly keep them to yourself.

Devon: Oh, you’ve got it. I won’t say anything.

Lily: Okay. Thank you. That’s all I want. Now, enough about me. Tell me what’s going on with you and the baby. And before you say it’s my day, just know that you cannot deny a ceo the truth on their very first day of work.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] Well, I’ve — I’ve officially, uh, started the legal process of getting shared custody of dominic. And amanda’s representing me, of course.

Lily: Wow. How did abby and chance react to that?

Devon: Abby didn’t react well at all, and, uh, I’m not really sure how chance feels about it. He’s very hard to read. I feel like he’s gone through so much overseas that he’s just keeping everything he’s feeling inside, and that’s one of the main reasons why I feel like what I’m doing is the right thing for dominic. It’s gonna be up to a judge to make the decision.

[ Cellphone pings ] Hang on. Let me check this.

Lily: Yeah. No problem. I’m amber.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

[ Knock on door ]

Adam: Come in.

[ Door opens ] How are you?

Chelsea: Better. I, uh, thought a lot about what you said last night, how there’s no chance in hell we’ll ever be together again.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Chelsea, that was not my words.

Chelsea: You made yourself painfully clear.

Adam: The lasthint that I wanted to do is to hurt you.

Chelsea: Okay, since we’re being blunt, that’s a crock.

[ Laughs ] You were being cruel to be kind, making sure I got the message this time. And listen — I get it. You wanted to make sure your intentions were clear, not getting mixed up in past emotions or tangled up in our past. We know each other pretty well by now.

Adam: We do.

Chelsea: It’s both a blessing and a curse.

Adam: Look, I think that we’ve — we’ve said everything that there is to stay about this, chelsea.

Chelsea: Don’t worry. As much as I do believe we could have a future for us and our son, I am not gonna humiliate myself by trying to convince you of that. And I’m certainly not gonna subject myself to more of what you were inflicting on me last night. I am just here to discuss how we move forward professionally. There’s something I’m gonna need from you if that’s gonna happen.

Sharon: Rey told me that chance is taking an indefinite amount of time off from work to spend with you at home and the baby?

Abby: Yeah, yeah. He wants to make up for the time he lost with dom and me.

Sharon: Well, that’s a good thing.

Abby: Yeah, it is.

Sharon: But things are still difficult?

Abby: I just — I feel like i need to protect my family.

Sharon: Well, yeah. Every mom feels that way. Are you talking about something specific?

Abby: Just keeping watch and holding everything together has become my primary job.

Sharon: Because chance is still struggling and then you feel like you have to take care of him, too.

Abby: My husband is fine. He loves our son, and he would do anything for our family. I don’t know why everyone keeps treating him like he’s about to fall apart.

Sharon: Okay. Well, I’m glad that he’s doing well. Um, I only asked because I know how difficult it can be to get over a traumatic experience.

Abby: Well, no, it hasn’t been easy for him, but he’s handling it.

Sharon: And it hasn’t been easy for you, either.

Abby: My husband’s home, and he’s safe. I can’t complain.

Sharon: Well, you actually can, and you should. Acknowledging your feelings can only help you and your family.

Abby: So, I get a pastry with a side of free counseling.

Sharon: Yeah, that’s the house specialty around here.

Abby: Mm. Well, I appreciate the advice, but I really don’t need a therapist.

Sharon: No, I get it. I’ll, uh — I’ll back off. I just wanted to let you know that I’m sorry for what you’re going through and you’re not alone. It really does take a village. And you should let yourself reach out to others, you know, if not me, your family or maybe friends who you really trust.

Abby: I know. I know there’s a lot of people who care about us.

Sharon: So, open up your world and dominic’S.

Abby: Chance and I need to be enough. We are dominic’s parents. He is everything that we — we wanted, everything we fought for. I mean, if we can’t do this —

Sharon: You can, and you will. But that doesn’t mean you can’t reach out to everyone who loves your son. It’ll help everyone.

Abby: Well, thank you. Thank you, um, sharon, uh, for the pastry and for listening, but, um, I need to get home to chance and dominic. Thanks.

Devon: Chance. Hey. Come in. Can I get you anything?

Chance: No. I’m okay. I’m just gonna cut right to it, man. There’s no lawyers, no abby. It’s just me wanting to know something.

Devon: Alright. Let’s — let’s have a talk. What, um — what would you like to say?

Chance: If I didn’t make it back or if I was in a better headspace right now, would you still be making all these legal demands?

Devon: I mean, I don’t — i don’t think we should be talking hypotheticals here. We should stick with reality.

Chance: Alright, but I want to hear it from you, man. Before we get the lawyers involved, I want to hear it from you. I mean, they’d probably even say that this is a terrible idea to do right now, but you know what? I think it is exactly what we need to do. So, how can we handle this without turning it into a war?

Allergies with

nasal congestion

Billy: Five minutes till launch.

Lily: Yeah. It’s just a remote meeting.

Billy: Across every time zone with every chancellor employee waiting to meet their new ceo. And you’re gonna be great.

Lily: Yep, I’ll be great.

Billy: You’re glowing, and i love to see it. You know the best thing to come out of the whole chanccomm debacle? My mother’s brilliant idea of putting you in charge of chancellor.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, I think it was also a good litmus test of the love, strength, and loyalty of our relationship.

Billy: Wasn’t easy, was it? For either of us.

Lily: No. It was a trial by fire. But we made it through.

Billy: And we did because of your support.

Lily: Well, and because you believed in me. So thank you for joining me on this adventure. I’m really happy that you’re by my side.

Billy: Today is all about you.

Lily: No. It’s about us. We made it through the other side stronger than before.

Billy: It’s a damn good day, isn’t it?

Lily: [ Laughs ]

Elena: I’m the face of askmdnow. I’m the person who fought for the health and wellness focus, to not only diagnose but take a preventative approach. Why would I want that to fold?

Nate: You’re already working long hours at the hospital, and you’re still volunteering at the clinic. And whatever spare time you can find, you’re doing askmdnow. And somehow you manage to squeeze me in. That’s a lot on your plate. I — too much maybe.

Elena: Look, I appreciate you being concerned about my well-being. And, yes, maybe there are times when I feel a little bit over-committed. But you of all people should know how that goes.

Nate: Yeah. I get it. Yeah.

Elena: I love all my work. I’m actually making a difference. I’m saving lives. And the time I get to spend with you — well, that’s my favorite part of the day.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: So, what could i possibly give up?

Nate: I’m just saying you’ve had more time for, say, home decorating now that chanccomm has been on hiatus.

Elena: [ Laughs ]

Nate: Are you ready to give up that free time again?

Elena: Yes, I — I have enjoyed those extra hours. But I am so proud of the work we’re doing at askmdnow. So, yeah, I’m committed… so long as the new owners of chanccomm are, too. I hope that you’re not asking me all these questions because you think I’m gonna start neglecting you. Because it’s not gonna happen.

Nate: I guess I’ll just have to pamper you a bit more when you do come home…to our home.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Adam: So, what is it that you want from me?

Chelsea: Information. Given the concerns you expressed last night, I want to make sure you’re not having second thoughts letting me run newman fashion with chloe.

Adam: What?

[ Chuckling ] No. No, absolutely not. Okay, that discussion was about our personal lives, and I needed to make sure that we had some clarity about the situation so we can move forward.

Chelsea: Heard and understood. Since we’re being brutally honest with each other, I’m sure you can understand why I had to ask the question.

Adam: And in keeping with that, I hope you know that i want you to continue working with chloe. Recreating the partnership that you guys had and building on that — that is what I want to see. I mean, your second act is gonna be phenomenal. You’re an incredible talent.

Chelsea: Thank you. That means a lot.

Adam: I would be honored to help you achieve every bit of success that you deserve.

Chelsea: Well, I’m glad to hear you say that because I’m really excited about the ideas chloe and I are coming up with.

Adam: Well, if there’s anything I can do to help, just say the word.

Chelsea: Well, actually, in order to do my best at work, i need total freedom, no drama.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Of course. We all need that.

Chelsea: So, in order to avoid any awkwardness between us, I think it’s best if newman fashion relocate to a new workspace. Under the circumstances, not running into you every five minutes would be ideal.

Devon: Yeah, chance, the last thing I want is for this to turn into a war, so we can definitely talk. So have a seat, please.

Chance: Alright. Well, first off, I do not like what this is doing to abby. She hasn’t had a moment of peace since you brought this up.

Devon: Well, I hate to hear that ’cause that wasn’t my intention at all. But she feels like me spending more time with dominic is gonna confuse and upset him. I’m curious, though, where you stand on the whole thing.

Chance: Well, I love dominic. And I love my wife. So I guess I just want what’s best for everyone.

Devon: That’s what I want, too. I just — I don’t understand why you guys feel so threatened by what I’m asking. Especially given the circumstances, I don’t think it’s very unreasonable at all. And, look, please don’t ever take offense to anything I say because I have all the respect in the world for your service and for all the time that you’ve spent laying your life on the line and protecting people. But can you tell me right now that you are in a solid place emotionally and that you’re ready to give dominic everything he needs and all the attention and the love he needs without being affected by the trauma that you’ve gone through? Can you honestly say that you’re ready to do that right now?

[ Knock on door ] One second.

Chance: [ Sighs ]

Devon: Hey. Abby.

Abby: Hey.

[ Door closes ]

Abby: Chance? What are you doing here? A lot of people think dealing with copd

Lily: [ Laughs ] Oh, my god. Did that just happen? It’s — it’s official. I’m ceo of chancellor. Me!

Billy: It is official. You! Congratulations.

Lily: So, how did I do? Was it okay?

Billy: How did you do? Come on. That was amazing, honestly.

Lily: Yeah?

Billy: Yes, the way you fielded those question, poised, powerful. They were eating out of the palm of your hand, and they loved you.

Lily: You think so?

Billy: Honestly, it was amazing. I’ve never seen anything like that. The energy, the excitement.

Lily: [ Sighs ]

Billy: The best way to start this company for sure.

Lily: Yes.

Billy: Congratulations. How do you feel?

Lily: Oh, I’m just gonna show you.

Billy: Mmm.

Adam: Move the fashion division out of the building? That seems a little extreme.

Chelsea: It’s a rational and logical solution to the problem of us working together. Out of sight, out of mind.

Adam: Look, I think that we are more than capable of maintaining a professional relationship. I think that we can handle this like adults.

Chelsea: Well, this is adult me telling adult you what I need in order to keep working at newman media. It’s a reasonable request, one I’m sure you can easily manage.

[ Door closes ]

[ Exhales heavily ]

Abby: Chance, what are you doing here?

Chance: Abby, I have to do what’s best for that little boy.

Abby: Our son?

Chance: Yes, and I was just gonna see if we could work something out. That’s it.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Okay. I get it. You’re trying to hash out a plan away from the overprotective mom, hoping that I get on board?

Devon: No, abby, that’s not what’s happening at all.

Abby: Look, if there’s something that needs to be discussed, it needs to be between the two of us.

Chance: Okay, abby, I just wanted to talk to devon alone, father to father. Now, devon just asked me a question, and I think it deserves an answer.

Devon: All I asked was, given everything he’s been through, is he ready to give dominic all the love and attention that he needs and deserves right now?

Abby: Chance?

Chance: No. I’m not sure I can.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


You know, I’m glad I came. Yeah? Yeah, it feels good sweating out all the stress from the move. Ha. I noticed you were giving it pretty good there. That got anything to do with brook lynn? Dante: Wow, dude, why don’t you

tell me how you really feel? And — and I don’t even think

brook lynn’s really my type. And if — if she was

my type, how would I be able

to trust her when she wouldn’t even know

the truth if it was looking her

in the face?

[ Sighs ] Get it together, girl. Who cares about one guy’s opinion? Well, that was a struggle. Tj didn’t want to go back to work, huh? I let him know that I would tell him if there were any updates with marshall. Did the doctor come by while I was gone? No, but thanks to finn, the cardiac care team was here when we arrived. Your father’s in good hands. It’s scary, but your dad’s gonna be okay. Thank you. Thank you all for getting him here as quickly as you did. How are you holding up? Honestly, I don’t know. I’m mostly confused.

[ Sighs ]

[ Knock on door ] Thirsty? What do I need chase for anyways? There are thousands of guys who will think I’m awesome. Obviously.

[ Cellphone beeps ] That is what dating apps are for.

[ Sighs ] Great. Oh, what did I do with my charger?

[ Creaking ] Chase? Why would it have anything to do with brook lynn? Well, I mean, you were pretty harsh with her back at the house, man. Maybe there’s some underlying resentment around the baby or, I don’t know, something else. It’s a confusing situation. Yeah, I’ll bet it is. You know, one minute we’re fine and then the next… anyway, we’ll — we’ll figure it out. Do you want to grab a beer after this? Yeah, sure. Why not? You buying? Done. Alright, let’s go. Consider it a thank-you for helping me move. Ah, stop. Oh, hey, what’s up? You and i need to have a talk.

Right before you called, I was deciding on whether or not I was gonna give marshall a chance. And then I had a conversation with drew, and it reminded me that, you know, I have time to make a decision, but… …you know, that might not be the case now. I know I have legit reasons to be cautious. Yes, you do. You have very legitimate reasons. But I can’t help wondering if I wasted time interrogating marshall instead of getting to know him. Okay, let’s just take one step at a time, alright? First, we need to hear what the doctor has to say, and then we’ll take it from there. Thank you. For what? For throwing “we” in there. I am right here for you, curtis. Okay? No matter what, I got you. Come here. Oh, dr. Rose, um, this is curtis ashford, marshall’s son. Is my father gonna be okay? To our partnership. Hear, hear.

[ Chuckles ] Hey. Hi. You want to come over and join us? You do know that I have a mini bar, right? Where the beer costs an arm and a leg. No offense. None taken. How did you know I was here? Spinelli. He had a feeling you weren’t going home, so he had me check on you, so I came here. Well, that’s sweet. I mean, spinelli worried and you checking in on me. But, you know, you can see I’m fine. I’m doing great. No, you’re not, carly. I know you, and I know that you would normally want to talk to jason at a time like this, but you can’T. And I certainly — I can’t replace him. I mean, I could put on a black t-shirt if it makes you happy, but… the kids are at monica’s for the night, so I am all yours. Do you want to start over? Okay. Hi, carly. Hey, sam. How are you feeling? Not so great. I hear you’re bailey’s father, not valentin. That’s right. Good, ’cause valentin doesn’t deserve that little girl. Did you hit him? That’s not my finest moment. Yeah, he probably had it coming. What’s going on with you and brook lynn? We’re not together, if that’s what you’re thinking. You don’t think she’s good enough for you? Whoa, whoa. What are you doing? No, I’m just saying, any — any man’s lucky to have someone like brook lynn. Okay. Yeah, but if chase isn’t interested in her, then he isn’t interested in her, but he’s stepping up for his daughter. If you say so. If you say so, that’s fine. Okay. Okay. Alright, I’m gonna hit the showers before we grab that beer. Mr. Corinthos, it was good to see you. Hey. What was that? What? What do you mean? You laid into him. What for? Well, ’cause, you know, brook lynn’s my goddaughter. What do you want me to do? She’s also an adult, dad. I mean, no offense, but with everything that’s going on with you right now, don’t you think you should be more focused on your own life?

[ Thumping ] Oh, crap. Okay. It’s okay. I’m blq. I’ve got this.

What the…

[ Gasps ] Good news is it wasn’t a heart attack. That is very good news. So what happened? Your father’s blood pressure was elevated. Okay. We switched his medication to one that will hopefully take care of that. So he’s alright? He’s perfectly fine. He can be discharged as soon as he gets his new prescription. Feel free to go in and see him. Thank you, doctor. And thank you all for your help and for waiting with my father until I got here. Of course.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, um… this is a patient. Can I check in with you in a little bit? Yeah, I should call tj and let him know what’s going on. Okay. Hey, you okay? Uh… something’s just not tracking. Um, excuse me. I’ve noticed she doesn’t like to elaborate. Yeah, not so much. Mm. Well, you know, now that we know marshall is in the clear, we’ve got a big decision to make. We do? Yeah. Correct me if I’m wrong, but we were having a pretty okay time before all the excitement. Yes. And, you know, I… my babysitter’s still on the clock for another couple hours. Yeah, same here. How would you feel about continuing our date? I’d feel pretty okay about that. Yeah? Yeah. Let’s go.

[ Cellphone rings ] Oh, excuse me. Cameron, hi. Wait, what? What’s going on? I’m just looking out for my family, like I always do. Why is everybody giving me so much grief? Who’s — who’s everybody, carly and michael? Well, ’cause — yeah. I mean, you know, it’s like… they’re mad at me for something that happened in nixon falls. I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t have control over it. All I’ve done when I came back is just try to make things okay. Okay, alright. Alright, how can I help you? I’m just trying to — nothing. I’m just gonna clear my — I need to clear my head. I’m gonna work out. You go with your friend. You do what you got to do. Ready? Uh…actually, man, I think I’m gonna stick here with my dad. Take a rain check? Sonny: No, go. Just go. Don’t worry about it. Yeah. No problem.

[ Cellphone rings ] Harrison chase. Whoa. Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hang tight. I will be right there. It’s nice to see you. Yeah, you too. Shawn and I were just going over some of our plans for the invader. Oh. You seem excited. I am. Right? It’s — we’re done with business, I think, yes? Pull up a chair. Join us. Oh, thank you, but I’m just here for take-out, so enjoy your evening. Mm. I’ll be right back. Everything alright? Yeah, fine. Why? You seem uncomfortable. Well, I get the sense that shawn butler is not my biggest fan. He, too, will come around. Right, like sam did the other day? What does that mean? Mm. I’m furious. Well, yeah, of course you are. About all of it. I mean, nina, yeah, she gets top billing because she’s a hateful liar. But sonny too, for not telling me all this time that he fell in love with nina. And the worst part is I can’t be angry about it because if I get angry about it, then we switch places in this story. Who, you and nina? Yeah, yeah. She becomes a victim and I become the villain, which is laughable, right? I mean, after nina kept sonny from his family out of spite, stole months from his life in the process. You saw. You watched. I mean, we were barely hanging on over here while they were attending barn dances and barbecues. And god forbid I want nina to deal with some kind of consequence. No, that paints me as the bad guy. Look, I-I know you’re upset, but I-I hardly think that puts you in that sort of — oh, yeah, it does. It does. I don’t have the words for how messed up this is. I actually think you’re doing a great job.

[ Scoffs ]

May I have a wordabout marshall ashford? You know I can’t discuss his case with you. I know, but, uh… I couldn’t help noticing that you quickly determined it was a simple medication issue. I’m confident in my diagnosis. With all due respect, in my experience, it’s best to perform ambulatory monitoring to rule out any underlying causes of hypertension. I understand you’re a very experienced nurse, ms. Johnson, but as mr. Ashford’s doctor, I know what I’m doing. Hey. Um… how you feeling? Kind of embarrassed by… all the — all the attention. So this has happened before? Doctor says there’s better medication that should help. How long, marshall? What, the prescription? No, how long have you had blood pressure issues? This isn’t an issue. I have it all under control. Really? Look where you are. There’s nothing to concern yourself about. What if it’s hereditary? Leave it alone. Sam said she’d be watching you? Yeah, it was more of a warning than a statement. I really wish she hadn’t have done that. Look, you know I didn’t tell you this to cause friction between the two of you — in fact, like, the total opposite. You and I talked about, you know, how difficult our friendship would be for your daughters. Yes, we did, and I understand where she’s coming from. But I’m also a grown woman, and I have a right to have the friends that I choose to have. Yeah, okay, under normal circumstances, sure. Thank you. Look, alexis, you know I cherish our friendship, but now we’re seeing the reality of it. And I didn’t want to keep you in the dark about how sam was feeling. So, you know, if you need to distance yourself while your daughters come to terms —

if your daughters come to terms with it, then I completely understand. What’s wrong? I’m trying to do what’s right for me and what’s right for my daughters, and I’m starting to think that just might not be possible. I’m really, really sorry. That doesn’t look good. What happened? Yeah, I’d like to know the answer to that, too. Well, I was upstairs giving myself a manicure — moving is hard on the nails — and I heard a noise — well, multiple noises, actually, so I grabbed a vase, I came downstairs, and I thought cameron was an intruder, so I whacked him over the head with it. You’re very strong. Thank you. Look, this is all my fault, okay? I thought the house was empty. I had no idea that my dad loaned it to brook lynn. Well, the good news is you don’t need stitches. Are you sure? Yes. Pupils aren’t dilated. Think you’re gonna be okay. Oh, thank god. Thank you for calling me. -Of course. -Yeah. Thanks a bunch. I’m just glad your head is still intact. Me too. I’m really sorry for the — intrusion. It’s okay. Yeah. I promise it won’t happen again. Okay, let’s get you two home. -Okay. -Yeah. -Okay. -Bye. Good night. Feel better. Sorry. Good night.

[ Sighs ] Chase: Are you okay? Yeah, I just — I feel awful that I hurt the poor kid. Yeah, I get why you called elizabeth. Why’d you call me? You should’ve gotten that beer when you had a chance. Oh, yeah? I should have? No, I think it’s — I think it’s good that I stayed. You want to get in the ring?

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, we can get in the ring in a minute. I want you to tell me what’s going on first. I told you what’s going on. Yeah, well, there’s clearly more than that happening. Carly came by… to say good night to donna and avery. That’s what she’s doing now — she’s coming by to make them think that everything is normal. Mm. But everything’s not normal. No, it’s not normal ’cause they keep asking, “is — is mom coming? Is she staying?” It’s not gonna work out. It’s not gonna work. Like that, because you… you did tell michael you were gonna give carly space. I tried, but I’m telling you, it’s obvious to me that carly refuses… to see what’s in front of her. Have you been holding this in the whole time? Oh, well, I lost my mind on nina at first, but, yeah, since the hearing, yeah. I…

[ Sighs ] I cannot imagine how hard this must be on you. Yeah, well… I don’t know. Anger is the easy emotion. I’d rather feel rage than everything else. What’s everything else? I’m embarrassed. Why? Because I feel stupid. You are not stupid, carly. Oh, god, I should — I should have known. I should have known something was going on. I mean, all the times that sonny insisted that we shouldn’t go after nina. I mean, that all he wanted to focus on was putting our life back together. You tell me one time — one time sonny corinthos hasn’t demanded retaliation, especially when someone hurts his family. God knows we were hurt. I know you were hurt. When I remember how confused donna was and how devastated avery and josslyn and everyone, I mean, nina did that to us. And he stood by her.

[ Sighs ] He swore on the stand that he wasn’t nina’s victim. What the hell is that? We were all nina’s victims, every single one of us. Do we not matter? I… [ Scoffs ] How am I supposed to believe that sonny loves me when he still has a place in his heart for a woman who hurt me like that?

I accidentally assaulteda hormonal teenager, chase. I’m sorry if I didn’t know what to do. You know, you really need to break this pattern. What pattern? Hitting people in the head, accidental or not. I was alone in a — in a strange house that we moved into to protect a tiny baby from a giant psychopath. I’m sorry, I was terrified, and you were working out. You told me to go. Not because I wanted you to. You know, for someone who claims they want a relationship — I do, I do. Well, then why is everything off-limits with you? Not — not everything. Just some things. Curtis, if I thought it was important or affected you in any way, I would — hold on, hold on. Your medical history is not important? You just suffered a cardiac episode, marshall. I’m fine. Didn’t the doctor talk to you? I’m talking to you. I need information from you. Does anything warrant a conversation, or am I only allowed to know that you play the clarinet? I’m sorry that the events in my life have made me guarded, and I’m also sorry that the events in your life have made you inquisitive. These are regular, run-of-the-mill questions. The only thing that’s irregular is that you refuse to answer them. Curtis, I hope and pray that we will somehow find a way to reconcile our differences. These are big differences. But they’re not insurmountable, man. And I’m willing to try. Are you? I get it. I mean, I really get it. If I ignore all the horrible things that nina has done, I can see where it would be hard for sonny to turn off his feelings for her. I mean, I couldn’t do it with jason. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. No, no, no. You know, don’t be.

[ Sighs ] I’ve moved past that a long time ago. Well… I know that it hurt sonny, you know, when he came home and he found out that jason and I had developed feelings for each other. I mean, that was really difficult for him. Never mind that it never would have happened if it weren’t for nina and her lies. But the point is, the second sonny came home, jason and I shut that door permanently. And I have done everything I can to do right by my husband. But sonny, on the other hand, he keeps acting on his feelings for nina. What do you mean? Did he say that he loves her? He says he still has feelings for her, but what they had is in the past. But how do I believe that when — when he keeps defending her? Nina’s in the wrong, clearly. But by sticking up for her, sonny’s making you feel like it’s you who’s attacking her. Yeah. And what does that say about him, if he feels that way and refuses to stick up for me? And more importantly, what does that say about our marriage? So, carly and I, we had this — we had this moment. Undeniable pull. Right? And then we get interrupted. And then carly’s, you know, walls go up. Ah, man, I’m sorry. I just think that if she — we were living together, she would see that what we have and who we are hasn’t changed. Whatever residual feelings I have for nina doesn’t compare to my love for carly. Right, well, maybe she does feel that. Maybe deep down she does, but she hasn’t processed it yet. I mean… you know you hurt her, right? But if anybody gets it, it’s carly. She fell in love with jason. Mm. Right? And then she insisted on being with me. What’s the difference between that and what happened with nina? Okay, well, there is a — oh, yeah? No, but there is a difference, okay? Listen, say what you will about her and jason. I’m not gonna touch that one, but… okay. They thought you were dead, right? Uh-huh. So in their eyes, there was no betrayal. But in her eyes, she feels you betrayed her because you went out and protected nina after you know that nina lied about you being alive. Yeah, I admit that I did — you know, I didn’t say anything when I first came because I thought that I could get over these feelings. And then jason died and then a lot went down… alright, whatever. All that stuff. …Dante. Bottom line is carly asked for space and time. Is she your person? Yeah, she is. Okay, then you got to give it to her. That’s what she wanted, that’s what you got to give to her. That’s it. No, that’s the worst thing I can do.

I’m gonna check on jake and aiden. I’ll be right back.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Okay. Oh, no, devin just texted. He says he’s gonna be here soon to pick me up. Goodbye already? I know. I’ll just be, uh… not here. Hey, I had a lot of fun tonight. Well, up until… well, you know. Yeah, well, we can try again at the cabin. Yeah, that should be no problem. We just have to avoid esme and spencer and trina. See? Easy. Honestly, alone or not, I… I just really like spending time with you. As do I. I’m sorry, I’m just — I’m really overwhelmed with this situation. I just… we keep trying to set boundaries, and bailey’s still in danger, and I just — I don’t know what the right thing to do is. Well, yeah, it’s an adjustment for sure, but we’ll figure it out together.

[ Chuckles ] Some first date, huh? Yeah, most romantic in history.

[ Both chuckle ] This may sound crazy, given all the… interruptions, but… I had a really good time with you tonight. And if you’ll let me, I would love to take you out again. I would like that very much. Yeah? Yeah. Though I’m hoping for a-a little less eventful. See what I can do.

[ Chuckles ] Look, I’m all for second chances. I mean, god knows I’ve been given a few, but harmony isn’t just a former criminal, alexis. The crimes she committed were against your daughters. I’m very well aware of that, and I don’t excuse any of that. However, it’s important to realize that — that harmony was also one of shiloh’s victims. Do you think sam or kristina can see that? Well, I don’t know if sam can, but truthfully, kristina’s opinion about this matters more. So if kristina knew how beneficial it is for you to have a relationship with harmony, what do you think that opinion would be? Still here.

[ Sighs ] Hypertension can be the sign of something more serious. Now, I know that dr. Rose is convinced it’s just a matter of your medication, but if you want a second opinion, I have no — no, no, no, no, it won’t be necessary. It’s happened before, and everything’s been fine. You call this fine? The doctor and I, we have an understanding, okay? Epiphany, thank you for looking out for me. Your patients — your patients are very lucky to have you. Don’t think that you have an out. I’m still paying my half of the bill.

[ Both laugh ] Deal. How’s marshall? The same. Closed off and stubborn. I feel like — I feel like I’m getting whiplash, you know? One minute, I’m considering never seeing him again and what that feels like, and the very next minute, I’m reminded of why we’re at an impasse in the first place. Relationships are tricky. That’s an understatement. You’ll make progress, you’ll have setbacks. I mean, that’s all to be expected. How can we make progress if marshall is controlling how much I can and can’t know? Well, you said it yourself, curtis — you wanted time, right? And now, thankfully, you have it. So it’s up to you how you want to spend that time. I do want a relationship with my father.

[ Sighs ] I just don’t know if that’s possible. I took your advice, talked to carly. It really didn’t help much.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Or you could say that you made your point, she made her point, and I think it’d be a huge mistake if you didn’t listen to what she’s asking of you. Carly wants space. Mm-hmm. We had that for nine months. We should be making up for that. I mean… being apart… …we gain nothing. Obviously, carly doesn’t see it that way. Oh, believe me, I know how hard it is when you and your husband aren’t on the same page. Mm. I am so sorry. For the first time in a long time, I have…no idea what to do. I don’t know what comes next, you know? Well, that’s not true. I know that I go to bed and I get up in the morning because I promised the girls that I would be there early to make them pancakes. Yeah. There you go. Alright. Well… I’m gonna go, okay? Sam. Yeah? Do you want me to call joss or something? Oh, no. I don’t want you to be alone. No, no, I don’t want you to call josslyn or michael. You know, they’ve already come down pretty hard on sonny. I don’t want them involved any more than they already are or feeling like they have to pick sides. Okay. Carly. Yeah? What’s the hardest part? What do you mean? You said you were angry and then you said you were embarrassed. What else? Underneath it all, there’s this… deep, aching sadness. Nina devastated my family, and, uh… I’m not so sure we can recover.

Well, I guess you’re free to go now. Guess so. Guess so. Look, curtis, um… I’m sorry things got tense earlier. I didn’t know what to expect when I came back. I only knew I had to try. It seems I’m not doing too good a job at that. Means a lot that you showed up tonight. I should call a car. Do they have taxis out front? They do, but… I’ll give you a ride. Ready? Lead the way. Brook lynn: Thank you. Long day, huh? Were you in the middle of working out when I called? No, dante and i were just finishing up. I was a little confused, though. I didn’t recognize the number you called with. Yeah, my phone died. I called you from cameron’s phone. Cam had my cell info? No. Then how’d you call me? I know your number by heart. For real? Okay, don’t sound so pleased, okay? After the whole maxie/fake chloe horror show, I just — I thought it was a good idea to memorize some important numbers in case of emergency. Important? Well, you are bailey’s “father.” Right. Letting myself fall for someone like brook lynn would be a major disaster. And I know your families used to be close, but I heard about all the wildly inappropriate stuff she used to do back in the day. I mean, she lied, she schemed, hurt people. Gosh, I am so tired.

[ Clears throat ] Really? Yeah, turns out that amorous teenagers breaking into your house just takes a lot more out of you than I thought. I’m gonna head to bed. I’m really sorry I ruined your night. Oh, you didn’t ruin my night. It’s not always gonna be like this, okay? Most of the time, you won’t even know I’m here. Good night. You’re right. I’m not looking to be right. The friendship that I formed with harmony in prison is gonna end up being hurtful to kristina. Even if she knew how you feel about harmony now? Even if, and I-I don’t want to make things difficult for kristina. Then I think you already have your answer. Apparently I am not going to be able to continue my friendship with harmony. If you keep pushing carly, you’re gonna sabotage the whole thing. No, no, the only way I’m gonna do that is by letting this go on. Here’s the thing, I need to — I need to up the stakes. I need to show carly how much she means to me. One thing I do know is I can’t do this — I can’t fix this if we’re not together. If she wants time… then, you know, we’re gonna do it together. I don’t think that’s what she meant. Well, I don’t care what she meant because… carly’s who I want. I’m gonna let her know that. End of story. Thank you for coming by and letting me get all that off my chest. Let you? Pretty much forced you into it. Either way, felt good. I’m glad. In case nobody’s told you this yet, you’re not the bad guy here, carly. Nina hurt you a lot. And if I’m being honest, sonny did, too. So you’re entitled to feel all of these emotions right now. Just — just know that. Yeah. Thank you.

[ Sighs ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Hey. How’s your head? You need some ice? Ah, I’m fine. Hey, mom, I… I’m so sorry that your date got messed up because of me. I’m just glad that you still need me. Everything good with you and josslyn? Things are great. I love seeing that smile. I like seeing yours, too.

[ Chuckles ] I bet franco’s really glad to see us doing so well. I hope so. I know so. You and josslyn are being safe, right? Good night, mom. Can’t wait to finish this conversation in the morning. Oh, great.

[ Knock on door ] Dante. Hi. Hey, elizabeth. Um…I’m sorry. I know it’s early. Uh… look, something terrible happened last night, and I thought you should know about it.

Days of Our Lives Transcript

Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nicole: [Grunts] Oh, my gosh, what is this made of, oak? Damn it!

Rafe: Need a hand? Mind if I ask what you’re doing?

[Dramatic music]

Kayla: Must have a roster or something or a softball team photo.

[Dramatic music]

Mother superior: Sister? May I ask just what you’re doing?

[Phone rings]

Steve: Yeah, brady? Listen, kayla’s on the inside. I really hope she’s okay in there. Right, I’ll keep you posted.

Kristen: Kayla will be just fine, father nichols.

Steve: Kristen?

Kristen: See, you’re the one who needs to pray for absolution.

Steve: Whoa, hold on.

Kristen: It is time you were given your last rites, patch. Are you having a moment of déj vu?

Steve: Is that what this is?

Kristen: Well, you caught me off guard, uh, at marlena’s all those months ago, so I’m just returning the favor.

[Tense music]

Abigail: We just have a few questions about a flight that you took last march. Um, do you happen to remember flying this woman out of salem?

Xander: Her name is sarah horton.

Ned: Pretty girl. Definitely not a face you’d ever forget.

Gwen: Ava, where the hell are you? I need your help. It turns out that abigail is not going to rest until she finds sarah, and when she does, it means it’s only a matter of time until I lose xander. Please, please, phone me back. Phone me back.

[Knocking on door] Coming.

[Gasps] Sarah?

Sarah: In the flesh.

Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”

[Soft orchestration]

Steve: You’re right. It has been a while. So, how have you been?

Kristen: Oh… well, I’ve been a little rankled, truth be told. So, I think it would be a very good idea if you try hard not to irritate me anymore than you already have.

Steve: Is it okay if I sit down?

Kristen: No. Instead of worrying about sister mary elizabeth’s safety, you should really be careful yourself.

Steve: I can see that now.

Kristen: Wow. [Laughs] Xander really wasted his money.

Steve: Xander?

Kristen: Mm-hmm.

Steve: What’s he got to do with this?

Kristen: He hired you to find me…

Steve: [Scoffs]

Kristen: And sadly, the only thing that anyone’s gonna find is a dead one-eyed priest.

Steve: No, no, no, no. Hang on, hang on. Xander did not hire me. So, you see, this is all one big misunderstanding.

Kristen: Huh.

Xander: So, you’re saying you do remember her?

Ned: No, I said she’s pretty. Look, I–I’ve flown so many people over the years. Just after a while, they turn into blurs.

Abigail: Okay, ned, well, allow me to de-blur this particular flight for you. It took place last spring, right before you abruptly quit your very lucrative job at dimera without even bothering to pick up your last check.

Ned: How did you–

Xander: How does she know that? That’s a good question. Abigail, you do seem to know rather a lot of information about this guy.

Abigail: Well, I do happen to be an investigative reporter, and coincidentally–well, coincidentally, my husband happens to be the ceo of dimera. So, I don’t have a lot of information, sort of just scratching the surface, but even though I haven’t begun to dig deeply, I do know I can find out everything there is to know about this particular flight, including who financed it and who profited.

Xander: Very impressive. So, um, sir, perhaps you’d like to take another look at this photo, and just concentrate a little bit harder this time?

Ned: Can I get a drink?

Xander: You’re not flying in the next eight hours, are you?

Ned: No.

Xander: Name your poison.

Ned: Beer me.

Xander: Waitress, can I get a beer for my mate? Cheers.

Abigail: I’m gonna ask you again, do you recognize that woman?

Ned: Now that I–I think of it, she does look a little familiar.

Gwen: I don’t understand, how–how are you here?

Sarah: Oh, well, I called the front desk and asked for xander cook’s room number. They were really quite accommodating.

Gwen: I–I didn’t–I didn’t mean that.

Sarah: Oh, you meant, how did I get off the desert island that kristen dimera stashed me on when I threatened to tell the cops that she was masquerading as susan banks? Which you already knew, because that’s what kristen was using to blackmail you into helping her escape.

Gwen: Sarah, I–I…

Sarah: I didn’T.

Gwen: What?

Sarah: Sarah horton’s still very much on that island.

Gwen: I–I–I don’t understand.

Sarah: [Chuckles] Sorry, I forgot.

Gwen: What on earth are you doing?

Ava: Relax. Gwen, it’s just me. This is the sound of nature breathing.

Mother superior: If you’re looking for something, all you had to do was ask.

Kayla: Well, I didn’t wanna bother you. I–I was looking for a bible. I’ve misplaced mine.

Mother superior: Well, isn’t that, uh, bible right there in front of you?

Kayla: Oh! So it is.

[Chuckles] My husband always tells me i need to get glasses, I’m so nearsighted.

Mother superior: Your husband?

Kristen: Don’t be cute, and don’t lie to me.

Steve: Well, guess the cute thing is out of my control, but I’m not lying. I’m not working for xander. He did try to hire me, but not to find you. He wanted me to track down sarah horton.

Kristen: The runaway bride?

Steve: Yeah. Unless you think that my finding her would lead to you.

[Tense music]

Nicole: What is it look like I’m doing? I’m trying to get this conference table out of here. I don’t even think you and i could get it out of here. You know what, I don’t even think the buccaneers offensive line could get it out of here.

[Grunts, sighs] And as you could imagine, it reminds me of something that i don’t–I don’t wanna remember. Something that should have never happened.

Rafe: I get it.

Nicole: Speaking of things that shouldn’t happen, what are you doing here?

Ava: You got any, uh, oh, lotion? This thing kinda chafed my neck.

Gwen: What in the actual hell? Ava, what is going on here?

Ava: [Chuckles] It was pretty mean, I know, I’m sorry. I just–I couldn’t resist. You should’ve seen your face.

[Mimics explosion]

Gwen: What is that thing?

Ava: Isn’t it obvious? It’s a sarah mask. Yeah, kristen sent it to me this morning.

Gwen: Why on earth would she send you that thing?

Ava: Well, she called me the other day, and apparently steve is looking for her, and she wanted to know if I sicced him on her.

Gwen: Steve’s found her?

Ava: No, no, no, no, and he won’t, not if kristen has anything to say about it.

Gwen: Okay, I still–I still don’t understand, why would kristen send you that mask?

Ava: Well, I–I told her that I had nothing to do with steve looking for her and that you and I do not want her found anymore than she wants to be found.

Gwen: [Sighs] Yeah, well, i would say that that’s obvious.

Ava: And I did end up admitting that xander had gone to steve.

Gwen: Yeah, but steve turned xander down. I told you that.

Ava: Maybe he changed his mind. Who knows. Anyway, I also told kristen that you were freaking out, because xander’s looking for sarah, and since we helped her break out of jail, she decided to return the favor and help us out.

Gwen: Not to mention the fact that she doesn’t want sarah found.

Ava: Yeah, well–[Chuckles]– That’s our kristen, isn’t it? Anyway, this showed up at my door. I think it’s the answer to your prayers.

[Ominous music]

Xander: Better?

Ned: [Exhales] Hits the spot.

Xander: You say you recognize this woman? That’s ’cause she’s the person that you flew out of town on the dimera jet.

Ned: I suppose it’s possible.

Abigail: No one has heard from this woman in nearly a year, so we’re going to need a little more than it’s possible. Surely you have some recollection of who was on that flight.

Xander: Hey, she’s in trouble, big trouble, and we– we have to help her. Did you fly this woman or not?

Ned: Yeah. I did.

[Dramatic music]

My asthma felt anything but normal.

Rafe: Listen, I don’t mean to bother you, okay? It’s just that something has come up at work.

Nicole: Oh, so, you wanna talk to me about police business? Shouldn’t you be talking to, I don’t know, this is just off the top of my head, but another cop?

Rafe: Uh, no, because it actually involves you.

Nicole: Me? What? How? Why?

Rafe: The other day, trask came to me with two different files, okay? Two different files that had the exact same complaint that I had planted evidence to make an arrest, and I think that there is more than a good chance that someone put them up to it.

Nicole: Damn it, rafe, i would never do that to you.

Rafe: No, I didn’t say you. I don’t think that it was you.

Nicole: Okay, but you said it had something to do with me.

Rafe: Yes, I did, because i think it was ava… because of us.

[Solemn music]

Ava: It’s pretty good, right?

Gwen: It’s a bit creepy. Uh…how is this supposed to be the answer to my prayers?

Ava: Well, kristen put a note in with the mask. And first, I need you to know that there were some pretty intense threats about what would happen to us if, uh, she was found.

Gwen: Why? We–we–we–we don’t want anybody to find sarah.

Ava: Yeah, that’s just kristen being kristen. You know, a letters not a letter without some threats. Anyway, she sent it so you could use it to get xander to stop looking for sarah.

Gwen: Me?

Ava: Yeah. Who else? You put the mask on, you go to xander, you tell him that you, sarah, don’t want anything to do with him anymore, and he needs to stop looking for you, and then bing, bang, boom, problem solved. He never wants to lay eyes on sarah again.

Abigail: So, sarah hired you to fly her on a dimera jet?

Ned: She approached me at the hangar, said she heard some of us pilots took on freelance gigs from time to time. She needed somebody to fly her out of salem.

Abigail: On a dimera jet?

Ned: Uh, I’m not the only one who does it, mrs. Dimera.

Abigail: I’m here for “the spectator,” not dimera enterprises. And so, you agreed?

Ned: I said I would do it for the right price. She definitely had the money. I can see how much she must have spent on her clothes.

Abigail: Are you an expert in couture?

Ned: Uh, no, luggage. I saw the size of the suitcase she had. I have never seen such a tiny woman with such a big suitcase.

Xander: Forget the luggage. Where’d you take her?

Ned: Can’t tell you that.

Xander: Why not?

Ned: It’s part of the deal. Look, I didn’t have to tell you that I flew her in the first place. I did it ’cause you said that she might be in danger.

Xander: She is, and if you don’t tell us where she is, we can’t help her.

Ned: Sorry I can’t be more forthcoming. But I get paid to be discreet. But I could also get paid to be indiscreet. So, if you wanna know where i took her, have to cough up some cash. And I don’t take checks.

[Soft instrumental music]

Kristen: If you were looking for sarah, there’s no way that would lead you to me.

Steve: Although, you know how they say that all roads lead to rome? In the past, a whole lot of mysterious disappearances have led to you.

Kristen: Oh, please. Use your head. Sarah went through hell, and she still gave me my baby back. Heck, we’re almost like sisters. So, why would I wanna disappear sarah horton?

Steve: God only knows why you do anything.

Kristen: Wow. May I remind you I have a gun?

Steve: Okay, that hasn’t slipped my mind, okay, but now that we have cleared up that I’m not working for xander, he’s not looking for you, why don’t you put the damn thing down?

Kristen: Because I still want answers, and if you are not working on xander’s behalf, then why are you here, hm? There’s not exactly a roman holiday for you and the misses to dress as clergy and her cloistered and you sleeping single in a double bed. No, I think–I think that you came here to flush me out of the convent, my spiritual home.

Steve: Your spiritual home when you’re facing prison time.

Kristen: Wow. Again, the gun, hm?

[Tense music]

Who paid you to come after me?

Steve: [Sighs]

Kristen: I mean it.

Steve: Brady.

Kristen: Why in the name of god would brady do that?

Steve: Because he wants to know if you’re the one who framed him for philip’s disappearance.

Kayla: Uh, did I say husband? I did, didn’t I? Did I say husband?

Mother superior: Yes, you did. I know some would say we’re a liberal order, but we still draw the line at husbands.

Kayla: I can explain.

Mother superior: I’m all ears.

Kayla: Um, you see, I–I come from a–a very strong irish-american family, and we take the teachings of the church quite literally. So, as I am a bride of christ, that would make him my husband, wouldn’t it?

Mother superior: A husband who nags you about glasses?

Kayla: Well, he talks to me about all my problems. He’s sort of like–like–like joan of arc.

Mother superior: And look how she ended up.

Kayla: A saint. She ended up a saint.

Mother superior: Uh, what we all aspire to. So, take the bible.

Kayla: Thank you, reverend mother.

Mother superior: And one last question, how are you going to read it given that you’re so nearsighted that you didn’t see it right there in front of you?

Kayla: Uh, well, I don’t–i don’t need to read it. I–I find comfort in its physical presence.

Mother superior: If it means that much to you, you–you must have–have all the important passages memorized.

Kayla: A lot of them, yeah.

Mother superior: Then how about you recite one for me?

Kayla: Um, I would be happy to, but I’m not sure I have them verbatim, and you shouldn’t improvise the word of god, should you?

Mother superior: Well, it’s all in translation, unless you memorized it in the original hebrew or aramaic.

Kayla: No, I never–never got the time for that.


Mother superior: So, just give it your best shot. [Laughs] I’m sure he’ll forgive you if you stumble over a word or two. He did say, “judge not lest he be judged.” Matthew 7, one through three.

Kayla: Um, well, uh, the christmas story’s always been one of my favorites. And, um, it came to pass that–

Mother superior: Lovely of course, but not, I feel, relevant to your situation. How about deuteronomy 31, 6? How does that go again?

Kayla: [Chuckles]

Kristen: You’re telling me that someone made it look like brady killed philip?

Steve: And they think that someone is you.

Kristen: Why would I do something like that to brady? He’s rachel’s father.

Steve: Yes, he’s also the man you loved who had the temerity to choose chloe over you.

Kristen: Uh, so what, to that end, I–I knocked him out and covered him in blood and then i left a weapon at the crime scene?

Steve: Uh, you have to admit, your plans, uh, tend to be a little serpentine.

Kristen: Right, but they’re always in my best interest. There’s no way I would ever send brady to prison for murder. I love him.

Steve: So, you’re telling me you don’t wanna get back at him and chloe for whatever it is you think they’re doing?

Kristen: I’ll admit it bothered me. Once again, that cow had her talons in him.

Steve: Mixed metaphors.

Kristen: Mm. And I wouldn’t have thought twice about framing chloe. But if you think I’d ever send brady to prison, then you don’t know me at all.

Steve: So, you didn’t kill philip?

Kristen: No, I did not kill philip.

Steve: All right then. No harm, no foul. I’ll report back to brady that this was a dead end and that we’re even. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Kristen: It’s a little late for that, don’t you think?

[Tense music]

Nicole: Don’t you think you’re being a little paranoid here thinking that ava is setting you up? We both know how much she loves you.

Rafe: She loved steve too. Look how that turned out.

Nicole: Is there something you’re not telling me?

Rafe: No, no, no, I have– there’s nothing concrete. It’s just I–I get this weird feeling that something is off.

Nicole: Well, I’d say framing you as a dirty cop is a little more than just off.

Rafe: Okay, nicole, think about–I mean, think about it, ava, she’s–she’s got the underworld connections to make it all happen, and I’ve–I’ve had this feeling before. I had this exact same feeling when I thought that she had decapitated duke.

Rafe: Wait, you think ava did that? No, come on, that–that doesn’t make any sense.

Rafe: Unless…

Nicole: Unless what?

Rafe: Unless she knows what we did on that table.

[Dramatic music]

Ava: So? You’re just gonna stare at it or what?

Gwen: I–I’m just–I’m a bit stunned by the likeness.

Ava: Yeah. It’s impressive as hell, i agree. The ghost of xander’s girlfriend past.

[Chuckles] And the idea that one of those could be made into any one of our faces. Oh, god, I would love, love to get my hands on a nicole mask and then just tell rafe that he is a two-timing jerk and, you know, he can go straight to hell.

Gwen: Okay, can we just stay on topic here? ‘Cause, I mean, what–what– what–what would you have me do with this thing?

Ava: I thought it was obvious. I’d have you wear it.

Gwen: [Sighs] And, I mean, you just wear it and–and I just, what, sort of breathe normally?

Ava: Oh, yeah, yeah. There were no breathing issues. There were no issues at all. Just–just the fun of making mischief.

Gwen: Making mischief?

Ava: Mm.

Gwen: Well, I’d say that that’s a slight understatement with what we are considering doing, don’t you?

Ava: Okay, gwen, do you want xander to leave you? Do you relish the thought of him telling you that, “hey, you know what, I’ve enjoyed your company, and, uh, thank you for the memories,” but you know his true love, the one that, uh–who’s a knockout, has a great career, that perfect bod, she’s back, so, buh-bye and have a nice life. I did not think so. But if, you know–if you’re feeling like you got stage freight and you can’t pull it off, well, then–then don’t worry about it.

Gwen: I didn’t say that.

Ava: Well, you seem awfully skeptical.

Gwen: I’m just–I’m lacking a bit of confidence. You–you really think that I can fool xander?

Ava: Ah, sweetie… there’s only one way to find out. And that is not by sitting around shooting the breeze. Come on, put the damn thing on already? What are you waiting for?

Gwen: [Sighs]

Xander: So, what are you waiting for? Pay the man.

Abigail: Me? Why me?

Xander: You have money. I don’T.

Abigail: [Sighs] Xander, I can’t do it.

Xander: Why? Did chad put you on an allowance or something?

Abigail: No, I’m a journalist. I represent “the spectator.” I can’t pay a source for information. It’s totally unethical.

Xander: Then don’t run the story. I mean, what do you care more about, selling papers or finding your cousin? My asthma felt anything but normal.

Steve: I don’t think it’s too late at all. I’ll just make it clear to brady that you had nothing to do with this.

Kristen: I’m still a wanted woman who broke out of prison. So what, you’re just going to go waltzing back into salem knowing my location? I mean, really? You’re even dumber than i thought you were.

Kayla: Deuteronomy 31-6. Of course. “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified of them. For the lord your god goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Mother superior: You do know your bible.

Kayla: I told you it brings me great comfort.

Mother superior: I’ve always found it to do so. Actually, I–I just came in to get my rosary.

Kayla: Thanks, mom. All the ccd classes really paid off.

Mother superior: I usually keep this drawer locked. Um, thank you for calling my lapse to my attention.

[Tense music]

Nicole: [Groans] You–you think ava knows we slept together.

Rafe: It’s crossed my mind.

Nicole: [Chuckles] Well, wait a minute, this is– this is ava we’re talking about.

Rafe: Yeah.

Nicole: If she found out, she would’ve been in your face. She doesn’t exactly sit on her feelings.

Rafe: No, you’re right. You’re right, and–and when i told her about the perps, she was completely shocked, and she–she was totally–totally behind me.

Nicole: Okay, that’s a good sign.

Rafe: Yeah. Has she been acting strangely, though? She keeps telling me to invite you over for dinner. I–like, has she done anything weird or–or out of the ordinary?

Nicole: No–

Rafe: No?

Nicole: Oh, then now–now that you mention it…

Rafe: What?

Ava: Come on, gwen. Let’s have a look.

[Dynamic music]

Gwen: So? What do you think? Hey, I thought you said I’d sound just like sarah.

Ava: Don’t get your panties in a bunch. Here. Try this.

Sarah: Do you really think that–oh, my god, it works.

Ava: [Chuckles]

Sarah: I mean, this is what sarah sounds like…

Ava: Mm-hmm…

Sarah: Right?

Ava: Exactly. Exactly. So, now you look perfect. You sound perfect. Oh, xander’s gonna be completely taken in.

Sarah: I don’t know, I–I’m not so sure.

Ava: Well, I fooled you, didn’t I?

Sarah: Yeah, but I don’t know sarah. Xander knows everything about her.

Ava: So did rex, and kristen fooled them both.

Sarah: Yeah, but kristen knows sarah. I’m flying blind here. I don’t think I can fool anyone, let alone xander.

Ava: [Mumbles] Maybe you need to take a test run.

Abigail: This is not about selling papers. I–whether I run this story or not, I can’t give a source money.

Xander: Are you serious? You’re gonna let our only lead on sarah slip through your fingers, because what, it’s unethical?

Abigail: Okay, first of all, I’m not really sure how reliable this lead is…

Ned: Hey.

Abigail: Um, and second of all, I–it’s not about ethics. If anybody found out that I paid for information, whether I run the story or not, it could totally compromise “the spectator.” My folks left me in charge of the paper, and last thing i wanna do is run it into the ground just a few weeks after they’ve left town.

Xander: We both know I don’t have the money.

Ned: Okay, well, thanks for the beer.

Xander: Oh, no, no, yeah, you, uh–I’ll get it. I’ll, uh–I’ll get the money. You just keep him here.

Abigail: Where are you going?

Xander: To the first national bank of kiriakis.

[Solemn music]

It’s my 4:05, the-show-must-go-on,

Maggie: Mmm. Henderson, I love this tea! What is it?

Sarah: I don’t know. I’m not henderson.

Maggie: Oh, my god. Sarah?


Sarah: [Chuckles]

Maggie: I can’t believe– I can’t believe it’s you.

Sarah: Me either.

[Tense music]

Steve: If you think that I’ll tell everyone where I found you, then there’s an easy fix.

Kristen: So, finally we both can agree.

Steve: Just move on. Take off. Find a convent in, uh, outer mongolia or somewhere.

Kristen: [Laughs] Mongolia, right. You–you think I should move?

Steve: Kristen, you’ve got safehouses all over the place where you can hide out. And I swear I won’t follow you. I got some zip ties here in this drawer.

Kristen: Hm.

Steve: Okay?

Kristen: Ooh. [Gasps] Are we looking for this? Huh? Yeah, see, I was here before, and that’s the first place i looked. Wow, for a P.I., You are very predictable.

[Tongue clicks] So, now I think it’s time for my easy fix.

Rafe: Nicole… ni–nicole, what is it? Hey, did ava say something to you?

Nicole: No, no. But it’s just like you were saying, I–I just got this weird feeling.

Rafe: When?

Nicole: The other day at the square, I–I saw you and ava together. You were hugging.

Rafe: Wait, you were– I didn’t see you.

Nicole: I know. But I think ava saw me. And she smiled at me, but it wasn’t a friendly smile. It was more knowing, like she was in on a secret. And afterward, I just felt very unsettled.

[Knocking on door]

Ava: Hey, nicole, you busy? I was just thinking that–oh… rafe, what a surprise.

Rafe: Yeah, I was just talking about you.

Ava: Yeah, you know, this is great, because now I don’t have to track you down too.

[Dramatic music]

Maggie: Oh, honey. Do you know what a relief it is to see you?

Sarah: I’m sorry I worried you.

Maggie: Why the radio silence? I mean, all this time we thought you were with rex, but when he showed up and he said you hadn’t left town with him, oh, honey, I mean, that was weeks and weeks ago. Ever since, I’ve been–I’ve been calling. Do you know that your phone is disconnected?

Sarah: I–I know, and I can explain.

Maggie: Okay… I’m listening.

Rafe: Track us down? What is that supposed to mean?

Ava: Well, it means that what I have to say concerns the three of us, and the two of you are so high-powered and important, you don’t answer your phones and you don’t return calls. So, if I want to speak to either one of you, I have to track you down and talk to you face to face. And don’t argue with me about that, because I was just here the other day trying to invite you over for dinner, and I knew then if it was gonna happen at all, I’d practically have to tie you down just to get you to agree to a date.

Nicole: It’s just that I–

Ava: No, no, no, no, no, I know, I know, I know. It’s okay. You’re so busy. I get that from him too, all the time. So, no more arguments, okay? The three of us are having dinner together at casa hernandez tonight.

Nicole: Oh, I–I don’t know, ’cause I–

Ava: No, no! [Rolls tongue] No, no, no, no. I am not listening to anymore excuses from either one of you. Make it happen, or you’ll incur the wrath of ava vitali. Seriously? The two of you have been moping around here like a couple of sad sacks. It’s really time the two of you just had some fun.

Nicole: [Chuckles]

Ava: Right?

Nicole: Yeah. Okay.

Rafe: Yeah.

Mother superior: Here you are, my dear.

Kayla: Thank you, mother.

Mother superior: Now if you’ll excuse me, I need to go talk to sister marguerite about choir practice. But I’ll see you at dinner.

Kayla: Yes.

Mother superior: Good. You can lead the evening prayers.

[Soft music]

Kayla: “Steve, just had a close call. Still looking for kristen.”

[Phone beeping] Okay, good.

Kristen: “Keep me posted, sweetness.”


[Tense music]

Abigail: You know, you could make this a lot easier if you’d just tell us where you took sarah.

Ned: Easier for you. Uh, I’ll be back in an hour.

Abigail: Where are you going?

Ned: Stretch my legs. Maybe look for a new watch to buy with all that money I’m gonna earn.

Abigail: [Sighs]

Sarah: Mom?

Maggie: Hm?

Sarah: I’m sorry that i wasn’t completely honest with you. I would have told you everything if it hadn’t been for xander.

Maggie: So, you pretended to leave town with rex because of xander?

Sarah: He didn’t leave me a choice. I tried to break off the engagement, but he didn’t believe me.

Maggie: As I see it, you didn’t–you didn’t call off the engagement. You called off the wedding, at almost the last possible moment.

Sarah: Just…I wanted xander out of my life, and I had to make sure that he wouldn’t try to follow me.

Maggie: [Sighs] You were that desperate to get away from him? Why?

Sarah: You know, I don’t– I don’t wanna get into it right now, but let’s just say if i never see xander again, it will be too soon.

Xander: Maggie, I have a favor to ask.

Xander: Sarah?

[ Relaxing music ]

Hope: You know, I could get used to you working from home.

Liam: That was nice. Well, yeah, with my dad out of town, I figured I’d take advantage. Although, it’s been quiet around here, right?

Hope: Well, douglas is doing homework in his room and beth is at her playdate. Actually, are you going to be here for a bit? Because I would like to go check in on my mom.

Liam: Oh yeah. No, no, no. Go. By all means. I know your mom’s ah… facing some challenges since new year’s, so.

Hope: Drinking that night really…really broke her spirit. I am worried about her.

Ridge: Hey. Are you still thinking about taylor? The way she showed up here.

Brooke: I certainly didn’t expect to be answering questions about my well being.

Ridge: So, you don’t believe in her good intentions?

Brooke: I don’t know. I mean, I guess she was genuinely concerned. It was just…unnerving.

Sheila: What–what just happened?

Taylor: You tell me.

Sheila: Well, the vibe in here suddenly shifted, and you’re looking at me like that.

Taylor: Do you want to tell me why you’re so interested in brooke?

Carter: That’s a little strange.

Paris: What?

Carter: I feel like you always have a smile on your face. You have been frowning for like five minutes.

Paris: Have I?

Carter: Seems like you’re deep in thought.

Paris: Yeah, I am a little, I guess.

Carter: About?

Paris: Zende and sequoyah are going out tonight.

Carter: Isn’t that what you wanted? For you guys to be free to see other people. Don’t you want that anymore?

Paris: Everything I said to zende still stands. I’m way too young to be committed like that.

Carter: But?

Paris: I think I was just caught off guard. Walking in on him making plans with someone else. A drop dead, gorgeous model at that.

Carter: I understand.

Paris: Really? And maybe you can help me understand it.

Carter: You’re jealous. You still care about zende.

Taylor: It’s a pretty straightforward question. Why are you so stuck on brooke?

Sheila: I really–I wouldn’t say that I am. I’ve been out of the loop for so long. I–I’m just trying to fit back in so that I can be a part of finn and hayes’s lives. And brooke… happens to be married to hayes’s grandfather.

Taylor: I hope that’s true. I would hate to see you getting obsessed with brooke again.

Hope: Mom’s been really hard on herself. And I just–I’m not sure what to do to help her feel better.

Liam: Well, I don’t know either, but I know your love and support goes a long way.

Hope: I hope so because it’s really all I have. I just–I should go check in.

Liam: Yeah, no. Yeah, I’ll hold down the fort and you… just go be who you are. A loving, caring daughter.

Hope: Just it bothers me, not understanding what it was about that night that triggered her urge to drink.

Brooke: I guess I’m just naive. Thought my desire to drink was behind me.

Ridge: People slip. That’s what meetings are for, right? To help you get back up. You’re doing everything you can. Most important thing is being honest with everybody about what happened that night. (Girl) hey guys, family hike starts… now!

Paris: Zende is a great guy. And we have so much fun together. And we just vibe so easily together. But he thought I was right there with him, ready to walk down the aisle as mr. And mrs., But I’m just not ready. And once you gave me the heads up about the proposal, there were only two options: Turn him down or head him off.

Carter: Makes sense. So, you’re not questioning your decision to keep things casual with zende?

Paris: Oh no. I think… I think I made the best choice for where I am in my life right now. For the both of us. I mean, if zende is looking to be serious with someone, he deserves a woman who wants the same thing. A woman who is as into him as he is into her. There was always something imbalanced about our relationship. I just didn’t think it mattered because we were just dating. Does that make me a bad person?

Carter: Yes. I’m joking.

Paris: Oh.

Carter: No, it doesn’t paris. You’re a beautiful person. You’re just trying to be honest with your feelings. Can’t ask for more than that.

Sheila: I totally understand why you would question my motives. But I…have changed, taylor. I mean, haven’t we all, really? When you’re young, you think that the world owes you everything. That you’re entitled to whatever you want. And that it’s okay to do whatever you have to do to make that happen, regardless of who you hurt. And then time takes a hard look at you and it beats you down. And it takes away what’s most important in life, and it humbles you. And you have to be. Listen to me, here I am explaining the human condition to one of the world’s most renowned psychiatrists. I’m just going to stop. Okay? But I say what I say because I have taken hard knocks and I’ve learned things, like what’s really important in life and that is your family. So now you don’t need to be concerned that I am obsessed with brooke. I just want to prove myself so that I can spend time with my son and my grandson.

Taylor: Oh, I want to believe you, sheila. I really do. But I am still gauging, assessing the situation. I hope that you’re telling the truth and that you have changed. For your sake and for my family’s as well. It would make things a lot less complicated if we could trust your intentions.

Sheila: I so appreciate you, taylor. And your willingness to let me prove myself. I just wish brooke would do the same.

Liam: Ah, doug the daring. You finish your homework?

Douglas: Yep. Where’s mom?

Liam: Oh, she’s up seeing grandma.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Ridge: Falling off the wagon is not permanent. You got to climb back on and… stay on. One moment at a time. One day at a time. That’s how it works, right? But I went from zero to 60. In one minute, I was drinking non-alcoholic champagne and the next I was doing vodka shots. And I don’t even remember the moment in between where I possibly could have stopped myself. It doesn’t make sense.

Ridge: It’s not supposed to make sense. It’s an impulse.

Brooke: But why? I haven’t even thought about alcohol, I don’t care when people drink around me. So, what would make this impulse happen? I have no idea.

Ridge: I don’t know either. Something triggered you. We may never find out what it was. Most important thing is you doing the work, right? That’s all you can do.

Brooke: Are you disappointed in me?

Ridge: No. Not one bit.

Brooke: Well, you should be. I’m disappointed in myself. Maybe you should give yourself some credit.

Hope: I actually agree with ridge. Mom, you’ve taken responsibility for everything that happened on new year’s eve. And not keeping it a secret has helped get things back on track. And that and accepting help from the people who love you most. Napoleon was born and raised to conquer.

Carter: Oh. What did I do to desrve that smile?

Paris: Because…you care and you’re supportive. And I–I just really appreciate that.

Carter: Well, don’t tell anyonebut , m one of your biggest fans.

Paris: Oh, and you have been. From the start. Right away, you saw something in me that was worth taking a chance on. Because of you, a door open for me here at forrester. Literally changed my life.

Carter: I’m glad I follow my instincts about you, paris. For reasons both professional and personal.

Paris: Personal?

Carter: I like having you in my life. You’re different.

Paris: Oh. Is that good or bad?

Carter: It’s excellent. I don’t know, you– you intrigued me. I’ve never met someone like you. You know you… you don’t disappoint paris. You’re endlessly fascinating.

Paris: Wow. Thank you.

Carter: Just keeping it real.-Paris: You know… the more I sit with it, the more I believe it’s best for zende to enjoy his freedom.

Carter: Why do you say that?

Paris: To be honest, I can’t stop thinking about our kiss.

Carter: To be honest. I can’t stop thinking about it either.

Sheila: Look, I’m sorry. It is just that brooke is so high and mighty. Talk about hypocrisy. I mean, judging me so harshly and being so unforgiving. It’s like she’s never made a mistake in her life. Or that there’s nothing horrible that she regrets. It’s just I thought you of all people would be annoyed by brooke, just as much as I am.

Hope: In the past, you had lived with your alcoholism alone, for a very long time before any of us knew there was a problem. And that makes it that much harder to ask for help.

Brooke: I was in denial. And then I was ashamed.

Hope: Well, that’s not what is happening here. Mom, you slipped up and you immediately went to a meeting, you called your sponsor and you let ridge and I know about what happened that night. I mean, taking responsibility, that’s half the battle. And keeping it a secret would eat anyone up from the inside.

Ridge: She’right.

Hope: Please, mom, you don’t have to worry. There’s no judgment here.

Ridge: We got you.

Hope: No matter what. There is nothing here but love and support, okay? Love you.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa claus.

Liam: So, buddy. You’ve said that a few times now. Is that like your favorite song this year? Because it’s mommy, I saw mommy.

Douglas: Not the song. I saw grandma kissing santa, for real.

Liam: Oh. Oh, well. Well, when was that? Was that– was it christmas eve?

Douglas: No, new year’s eve.

(Ziploc bag opening) But taylor? You would think should be eager to spill the tea, even with me. I just need to know if she fell into the trap that I set. Now your day of reckoning is coming, brooke. You trust and believe because it’s coming soon.

Ridge: You’re the most remarkable woman I’ve ever known.

Brooke: How can you say that? I’m anything but.

Ridge: At times, you’re a little hard on yourself.

Brooke: Not hard enough.

Ridge: You slipped. It was new year’s and I wasn’t there. And you’re taking all the right steps. You want to get back to where you were. And you say you feel shame, but you shouldn’T. You could have hidden this from me, and you didn’T. You shared with me, with your daughter. Every intimate detail of what happened that night. I’m so proud of you.

Brooke: Drink it up.

Douglas: I saw grandma kissing santa. I did. I swear.

Liam: Okay. All right. Well, I know that’s what you think you saw.

Douglas: I didn’t think it. I saw it. Grandma was kissing santa. Maybe he came back to bring her a present and maybe she was thanking him.

Liam: So–

Hope: Everything okay?

Liam: Yeah, yeah. It’s good. It’s good. It’s just, um… okay. So, you know how douglas has been saying, I saw grandma kissing santa claus lately.

Hope: Sweetie, you’re– you’re misremembering the song. It’s I saw mommy kissing santa claus.

Liam: So yes–

Hope: Not grandma.

Liam: That’s what I said. But I don’t think he’s talking about the song. He says he’s talking about brooke.

Hope: I don’t understand.

Liam: I don’t know. I think maybe douglas is trying to tell us something.

Hope: So, something happened and you saw grandma kissing santa claus?

Douglas: Yes.

Hope: Was this on christmas eve or christmas?

Douglas: New year’s eve.

Hope: And where did you see that?

Douglas: At her house. It was at night.

Liam: Um. Well, I don’t know why you were up there, because I distinctly remember telling you not to go up to the house, right?

Douglas: I know, I’m sorry, but it was only for a minute so I can go get my stuffed bunny. Am I in trouble?

Liam: No, you’re– no, you’re not in trouble, and we’re going to deal with that later. I’m just so happy you’re being honest with us. So just–just um–just– yeah, tell us what happened.

Douglas: Well, I walked up to the living room window, and that’s when I saw it.

Hope: So, you saw grandma kissing someone?

Douglas: Yes, santa.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Nicole decides to try getting rid of the conference table but she can’t move it. Rafe then appears and asks if she needs a hand as he questions what she is doing.

Kayla looks through Mother Superior’s desk to try and find a list of names staying there. Mother Superior then returns to the room and questions what she is doing.

Steve goes back to his hotel and calls Brady to inform him that Kayla is on the inside and he will keep him posted. Kristen then arrives and tells Steve that Kayla will be just fine. Kristen then pulls a gun on Steve and declares it’s time for his last rites. Kristen asks if he’s having deja vu. Kristen brings up Steve catching her off guard at Marlena’s months ago, so now she’s returning the favor.

Abigail tells Ned Granger that they have a few questions about a flight he took last March. Abigail shows him Sarah’s photo and asks if he remembers flying her out of Salem. Ned calls her a pretty girl and not a face you’d ever forget.

Gwen calls Ava and leaves a message, asking where she is because she needs her help since Abigail is not going to rest until she finds Sarah. Gwen worries that it’s only a matter of time before she loses Xander. Gwen tells Ava to call her back as there’s a knock at the door. Gwen then answers the door and is shocked to see Sarah.

Steve tells Kristen that it’s been awhile and asks how she’s been. Kristen warns him not to irritate her more than he already has. Kristen says instead of worrying about Kayla’s safety, he should really be more careful himself. Kristen remarks that Xander really wasted his money. Steve questions what Xander has to do with this. Kristen believes Xander hired him to find her but all anyone’s going to find is a dead, one-eyed priest. Steve clarifies that Xander did not hire him so it’s all one big misunderstanding.

Xander asks if Ned remembers Sarah but he says no. Abigail explains that this flight was last spring right before Ned abruptly quit his lucrative job at DiMera without even bothering to pick up his last check. Ned questions how she knew that. Xander notes that Abigail does seem to know a lot of information about this guy. Abigail responds that she is an investigative reporter and her husband happens to be the CEO of DiMera, so she’s just scratching the surface and hasn’t begun to dig deep but she can find out everything there is to know about this flight including who financed it and who profited. Xander calls that very impressive. Xander asks Ned again about Sarah. Ned asks for a beer so Xander calls to the waitress. Abigail asks Ned again if he recognizes Sarah. Ned admits that she does look a little familiar.

Gwen doesn’t understand how Sarah is there. She says she called the front desk and asked for Xander’s room number, then brings up Kristen stashing her on a desert island. “Sarah” then removes her mask, revealing that it was just Ava wearing a Sarah mask like Kristen had.

Mother Superior tells Kayla that if she was looking for something, all she had to do was ask. Kayla says she didn’t want to bother her and claims she was looking for a bible because she misplaced hers. Mother Superior points out that her bible is right in front of her. Kayla then slips up and mentions her husband which Mother Superior questions.

Kristen tells Steve not to lie to her. Steve assures that he’s not working for Xander, though he did try to hire him but not to find her, to find Sarah Horton. Steve says that’s unless that him finding Sarah would lead to Kristen.

Nicole tells Rafe that she’s trying to get the conference table out of here but she doesn’t think anyone can. Nicole explains that it reminds her of something she doesn’t want to remember which shouldn’t have happened. Rafe says he gets it. Nicole asks what Rafe is doing here.

Gwen questions what in the hell Ava is doing. Ava laughs and admits it was pretty mean but she couldn’t resist. Ava jokes about Gwen’s reaction and explains that it’s a Sarah mask that Kristen sent to her this morning. Gwen asks why she would do that. Ava tells her that Steve is looking for her, so she wanted to know if Ava sent him after her. Gwen still doesn’t understand why Kristen would send her that mask. Ava explains that she assured Kristen that she had nothing to do with Steve and that they don’t want her to be found. Ava adds that she admitted that Xander had gone to Steve and that she mentioned Gwen was freaking out about Sarah. Ava reveals that since they helped Kristen break out of jail, she decided to help them out. Gwen notes that Kristen doesn’t want Sarah found either. Ava tells Gwen that she thinks the Sarah mask is the answer to her prayers.

Xander asks Ned about recognizing Sarah and if she’s the person that he flew out of town on the DiMera jet. Ned supposes it’s possible. Abigail says no one has heard from her in a year, so she demands more information. Xander adds that Sarah is in big trouble so they have to help her. Xander asks if Ned flew Sarah or not. Ned then admits that he did.

Rafe tells Nicole that he doesn’t mean to bother her, but something has come up at work. Nicole questions him wanting to talk to her about police business and suggests he should be talking to another cop. Rafe explains that it actually involves her which she questions. Rafe informs her that the other day, Melinda came to him with two different files with the exact same complaint that he planted evidence to make an arrest so he thinks there’s more than a good chance that someone put them up to it. Nicole tells Rafe that she would never do that to him. Rafe clarifies that he never said it was her. Nicole questions it having to do with her then. Rafe then reveals that he thinks it was Ava because of them.

Gwen calls the Sarah mask a bit creepy and asks how it’s supposed to be the answer to her prayers. Ava informs her that Kristen put a note with the mask with some pretty intense threats about what would happen to them if she was found but says that’s just Kristen being Kristen. Ava adds that Kristen sent the mask so Gwen could get Xander to stop looking for Sarah. Ava instructs Gwen to put the mask on and become Sarah to tell Xander that she wants nothing to do with him and that he needs to stop looking for her, then problem solved and Xander will never want to see Sarah again.

Abigail questions Ned about Sarah hiring him to fly her on a DiMera Jet. Ned confirms that she approached him at the hangar about a freelance gig and said she needed someone to fly her out of Salem. Ned says he agreed to do it for the right price and she definitely had the money. Ned mentions the size of the suitcase she had. Xander cuts him off and asks where he took her. Ned responds that he can’t tell him that because it’s part of the deal. Ned says he didn’t have to tell that he flew her in the first place, but he did because they said she might be in danger. Xander complains that if he doesn’t tell them where she is, they can’t help her. Ned says he’s sorry that he can’t be more forthcoming. Ned then tells them to cough up some cash if they want to know where he took Sarah.

Kristen argues that if Steve was looking for Sarah, there’s no way it would lead him to her. Steve remarks that all roads lead to Rome and in the past, a lot of disappearances have led to Kristen. Kristen tells him to use his head as Sarah went through Hell and still gave her baby back to her so they are almost like sisters. Kristen asks why she would want Sarah to disappear. Steve says God only knows why she does anything. Kristen reminds him that she has a gun. Steve says they have cleared up that he’s not working for Xander and he’s not looking for her, so he asks her to put the gun down. Kristen still wants answers as to why Steve is here if he’s not working for Xander. Kristen thinks Steve came to flush her out of the convent, which she calls her spiritual home. Steve brings up Kristen facing prison time. Kristen again reminds him of her gun. Kristen questions who paid him to come after her. Steve then reveals it was Brady. Kristen questions why in the name of God he would do that. Steve explains that Brady wants to know if she’s the one who framed him for Philip’s disappearance.

Mother Superior reminds Kayla that nuns can’t have husbands. Kayla tries to cover and claims she is a bride of Christ so Jesus is her husband. Mother Superior tells her to take the bible but questions how she is going to read it since she couldn’t see it right in front of her. Kayla claims that she doesn’t need to read it, but just finds comfort in it’s physical presence. Mother Superior guesses that she must have the important passages memorized and then asks Kayla to recite one for her. Kayla says she’d be happy to but she’s not sure she has them verbatim and she doesn’t want to improvise the word of God. Mother Superior says it’s all in translation and tells Kayla to give it her best shot. She then suggests a specific bible verse for Kayla to recite.

Kristen questions Steve telling her that someone made it look like Brady killed Philip. Kristen questions why she would do something like that to Brady when he’s Rachel’s father. Steve brings up Brady choosing Chloe over her and says her plans tend to be serpentine. Kristen says they are always in her best interest while there’s no way she would ever send Brady to prison for murder when she loves him. Steve asks if she doesn’t want to get back at Brady and Chloe. Kristen admits it bothered her that Chloe once again had her talons in Brady and she wouldn’t have thought twice about framing Chloe, but he doesn’t know her at all if he thinks she would ever send Brady to prison. Kristen assures that she did not kill Philip. Steve says alright then no harm, no foul and he will report back to Brady that this was a dead end and they are even. Steve apologizes for the misunderstanding but Kristen says it’s a little late for that.

Nicole thinks Rafe is being a little paranoid in thinking that Ava is setting him up when they both know how much she loves him. Rafe brings up how it turned out when Ava loved Steve too. Nicole asks if there’s something he’s not telling her. Rafe says he just has a weird feeling that something is off. Nicole thinks framing him would be more than just off. Rafe talks about Ava having the underworld connections to make it happen. Rafe adds that he had the same feeling when he thought Ava decapitated Duke. Nicole argues that makes no sense but Rafe says that’s unless she knows what they did on the conference table.

Ava asks if Gwen is just going to stare at the Sarah mask. Gwen is stunned by the likeness. Ava agrees that it’s impressive and brings up the idea that a mask could be made of anyone of their faces. Ava wishes she could get a Nicole mask to tell Rafe to go to Hell. Gwen questions what she is supposed to do with the Sarah mask. Ava tells her to wear it. Gwen asks if she’s just supposed to breathe normally. Ava assures there was no issues at all. Ava asks if Gwen wants Xander to leave her for Sarah. Ava tells her not to worry about it if she doesn’t think she can pull it off. Gwen says she’s just lacking confidence and asks if Ava really thinks she can fool Xander. Ava says there’s only one way to find out and instructs Gwen to put the mask on as she questions what she is waiting for.

Xander instructs Abigail to pay Ned since she has money and he doesn’t. Abigail responds that she can’t since she’s a journalist for the Spectator so it’s unethical to pay a source for information. Xander tells her not to run the story then. Xander questions if she cares more about selling papers or finding her cousin.

Steve tells Kristen that it’s not too late and he can just tell Brady that she had nothing to do with this. Kristen reminds him that she’s still a wanted woman who broke out of prison. Kristen asks if Steve is just going to go back to Salem, knowing her location, and calls him dumber than she thought.

Kayla successfully recites the passage of Deuteronomy, which impresses Mother Superior. She says that she just came back for her rosary and remembers to lock her drawer this time.

Nicole questions Rafe thinking that Ava knows they slept together. Rafe says it crossed his mind. Nicole argues that if Ava found out, she would’ve been in his face as she doesn’t sit on her feelings. Rafe agrees and says that she was completely shocked and behind him about the case against him. Rafe asks Nicole if Ava has been acting strange and brings up how Ava keeps telling him to invite Nicole over for dinner. Rafe asks if Ava has done anything weird or out of the ordinary. Nicole says no but then says now that he mentions it…

Gwen puts on the Sarah mask. Ava fixes it for her so that Gwen also sounds exactly like Sarah. Ava says that Xander will be completely taken in. Gwen remains unsure. Ava points out that she fooled her. Gwen points out that she doesn’t know Sarah while Xander knows everything about her. Ava remarks that Rex did too and Kristen fooled them both. Gwen argues that Kristen knows Sarah while she’s flying blind and doesn’t think she can fool anyone. Ava suggests she take a test run.

Abigail argues that this is not about selling papers as she can’t give a source money either way. Xander asks if she’s going to let their only lead slip through their fingers. Abigail is unsure how reliable this lead is and repeats that it’s not about ethics. Abigail worries that it could totally compromise the Spectator when her parents left her in charge of the paper, so she doesn’t want to run it in to the ground after only a few weeks. Xander notes that he doesn’t have the money but insists that he will get it. Xander instructs Abigail to keep Ned there as he exits the Pub.

Gwen as “Sarah” goes to the Kiriakis Mansion and shocks Maggie. Maggie hugs her and says she can’t believe it’s her.

Steve tells Kristen that if she thinks he’ll tell everyone where she is, she can just move on and find a convent in Mongolia or somewhere. Steve argues that she can hide out anywhere and swears that he won’t follow her. Steve mentions having zip ties in the drawer and opens it up but Kristen reveals that she had already stolen his gun from that drawer. Kristen remarks that he’s very predictable for a private investigator. Kristen declares that it’s time for her easy fix as she holds both guns on Steve.

Rafe asks Nicole if Ava said something to her. Nicole says it’s just like he was saying as she just got this weird feeling the other day in the town square as she saw Rafe and Ava hugging. Rafe notes that he didn’t see her. Nicole thinks Ava saw her and smiled at her but it wasn’t a friendly smile, but more like she was in on a secret. Nicole admits she felt very unsettled afterwards. Ava then arrives, asking if Nicole is busy and then sees Rafe and says what a surprise. Rafe responds that he was just talking about her. Ava says this is great as now she doesn’t have to track him down too.

Maggie tells “Sarah” what a relief it is to see her. “Sarah” apologizes for worrying her. Maggie questions the radio silence as they thought she was with Rex and then he showed up and said she hadn’t left town with him. Maggie says she’s been calling ever since for weeks and now her phone is disconnected. “Sarah” claims that she can explain, so Maggie says she’s listening.

Rafe asks Ava what she means by tracking them down. Ava responds that what she has to say concerns the three of them and complains that Rafe and Nicole aren’t answering their phones or returning calls, so she has to track them down to talk to them face to face. Ava adds that she was just there to invite Nicole over for dinner and she knew she’d have to tie her down to get her to agree. Ava knows Nicole is so busy and says she gets that from Rafe all the time too. Ava declares no more arguments, the three of them are having dinner together at Rafe’s house tonight. Nicole tries to speak but Ava says she’s not listening to any more excuses from either of them. Ava tells them to make it happen or they will incur the wrath of Ava Vitali. Ava argues that they have been moping around like two sad sacks, so it’s time they have some fun.

Mother Superior hands Kayla her bible and says she will see her at dinner, where she can lead the evening prayers. After Mother Superior exits, Kayla shuts the door and pulls out her phone to text Steve that she just had a close call and that she’s still looking for Kristen. Kayla gets a text back from Steve, saying all is good on his end.

Kristen has Steve’s phone and is wearing his eye patch as she texts Kayla. Kristen then looks down at Steve unconscious on the floor while the two guns lay nearby.

Abigail tells Ned that he could make this a lot easier if he just told them where he took Sarah. Ned says that would be easier for her. Ned decides he’ll be back in an hour as he’s going to stretch his legs and jokes about all the money he’s going to earn as he exits the Pub.

“Sarah” tells Maggie that she’s sorry for not being completely honest with her and that she would’ve told her everything if it wasn’t for Xander which Maggie questions. “Sarah” says Xander didn’t give her a choice and wouldn’t believe her breaking off the engagement. Maggie complains that she called off the wedding at the last possible moment. “Sarah” says she wanted Xander out of her life and had to make sure he wouldn’t try to follow her. Maggie questions why she was that desperate to get away from Xander. “Sarah” doesn’t want to get into it right now but says if she never sees Xander again, it would be too soon. Xander then enters the room and is shocked to see “Sarah”.
