Days of Our Lives Update
Update written by Joseph
Paul answers his door and is surprised to see Andrew Donovan. Paul informs him that if he came to see John, he just left for the airport to meet up with Steve. Andrew says he figured and that he came to see Paul, so Paul invites him in.
Kayla successfully picks the lock on the door in the lab.
Steve and John pick the lock on the door they are at.
Kayla goes to open the door but hears movement from the other side.
Steve and John then open the door with their guns raised.
Kayla and Marlena’s door opens and it’s Dr. Rolf, who welcomes them back to the land of the living.
Steve and John are shocked to find Hope Brady with her gun raised as well on the other side of the door!
After knocking out Megan, Kate escapes and runs in to Bo Brady! Kate asks if it’s really him. Bo confirms it is and says long time no see.
At the police station, Shawn calls Hope and leaves her a message, saying that he’d like to talk to her. Belle arrives and says she’s glad to see him as they hug. Shawn asks if it was a long day. Belle says she’s just leaving the courthouse as the jury wanted to stay and deliberate so they could come up with a verdict. Belle asks if Shawn is okay. Shawn says he is just worried about his mom because he can’t seem to reach her despite calling and leaving messages. Belle is sure she’s just busy. Shawn hopes that’s all it is.
Steve questions what the hell Hope is doing here. Hope assumes the same thing they are; looking for Megan Hathaway.
Megan remains knocked out where Kate left her.
Kate can’t believe that Bo is alive and asks how. Kate guesses it was Megan and the prisms. Kate says they assumed Megan wanted the prisms to bring Stefano back, but she wanted to bring Bo back. Bo confirms that she succeeded. Kate asks if he’s been imprisoned here the whole time. Bo confirms he’s been here awhile. Kate says she’s so sorry but she’s thrilled that she ran in to him because Megan had her imprisoned here as well along with Marlena and Bo’s sister Kayla. Kate says she has no idea why she did it but Megan had the three of them on ice against their wills.
Dr. Rolf asks Marlena and Kayla if they were going somewhere.
Kate still can’t believe Bo is alive and says to wait until Kayla sees him. Kate says this is all crazy but they have to find Marlena and Kayla so they can free them and then all four of them can get the hell out of here. Bo stops her and says they can’t do that.
Paul tells Andrew that John ran out pretty fast when he got Steve’s call, saying that he had a potential lead on the location of Megan Hathaway. Paul guesses that Andrew gave that to him. Paul notes that he’s not asking him to tell him where he is, he’s just asking if he thinks they have a chance at finding her. Paul argues that they are talking about the woman who murdered his stepmom, Andrew’s aunt, and his uncle Roman’s wife. Andrew says he knows but it’s not his case and even if it were, he’s not allowed to discuss any of the information. Paul gets that it’s top secret information. Andrew insists that he cares about this too as it’s personal for both of them and their families. Andrew assures that the ISA is doing everything in it’s power to get justice for these women. Paul says he trusts him on it. Andrew says good because he’d really like to talk about them. Paul didn’t think there was a them since they stopped talking. Paul notes that they didn’t have a falling out or anything but living on opposite sides of the country and trying to build a relationship is difficult and with their schedules, they couldn’t seem to figure out logistics. Andrew says he remembers but admits he’s missed Paul. Paul responds that he’s missed him too.
Belle asks Shawn if something happened or if he has a reason to believe Hope is in trouble. Shawn says it’s nothing like that and he’s just frustrated that he can’t get a hold of her as he wanted to fill her in on the Megan Hathaway case and see if she knows anything. Belle can’t believe that Megan could just upend all their lives and cause so much sorrow for so many people for some ancient grudge. Shawn points out that she’s Stefano DiMera’s daughter and resurrection and vengeance is what that family does best. Belle complains that what Megan did is sick. Shawn assures that Megan won’t get away with this, especially with Black Patch on the case. Belle admits it does make her feel better knowing that John and Steve are looking for this murderous bitch.
Hope hugs John and Steve, saying she can’t believe they are here. John says they heard this was where Megan Hathaway was hiding out. Hope notes that the ISA only recently discovered that and kept it top secret, so she questions how they pried it out of Shane. Steve admits they didn’t but the person they did pry it out of took a little convincing, especially considering what Megan did to them last summer. John explains that the ISA thought maybe they were still under Megan’s control. Steve assures they are not and asks how Hope figured out where Megan was. Hope notes that Megan never messed with her head so the ISA didn’t have the same concerns with her. Steve points out that it’s still highly classified so she couldn’t just walk in and get that information, unless she got it from Shane. Hope says she still has a few friends in high places. Hope adds that no matter how they all got here, she’s so happy to see them both. Steve says the last thing they expected when they opened the door was a friendly face. Hope points out that he looked ready for a fight. John declares that one way or another, they’re going to take Megan Hathaway down. Hope states that Megan deserves what’s coming her way. Steve adds that it’s not just about what she did to them.
Kayla complains that they should’ve known Dr. Rolf would show up and asks how they would wake up from the dead without him. Dr. Rolf says they can express their thanks at any time. Kayla tells him not to hold his breath. Marlena questions Dr. Rolf working for Megan now. Dr. Rolf says they can’t be surprised, pointing out that he serves at the pleasure of the DiMera family and Megan is a DiMera. Marlena argues that Stefano brought pain and suffering to everyone he met. Dr. Rolf disagrees and calls him a legend that was taken far too soon. Dr. Rolf says it’s now his mission to carry on his legacy with Megan, so anything she asks of him, he will do.
Kate tells Bo that they don’t really have time to wait because Kayla and Marlena are both here somewhere. Bo repeats that they can’t leave. Kate informs him that Megan is incapacitated so there is no worry there. Bo asks what she means. Kate reveals that she knocked Megan out but she could come to at any moment so they have to get out of here. Bo responds that he’s sorry but they have to go back to the room Megan is in. Kate calls it way too risky but Bo says they don’t have a choice.
Andrew knows it didn’t turn out well for he and Paul the last time and it ended up devolving in to texts about times they could meet up. Andrew admits that even when they lost touch, he couldn’t stop thinking about last summer, meeting him and traveling around the world together trying to find John. Paul jokes that it’s not often that he goes on a first date where they end up in a shared hotel room in Hong Kong. Andrew brings up when they kissed. Paul admits he thought about that kiss many times and says it felt like the start of something. Andrew notes that sometimes when he’s working late, he thinks about that moment and wishes they could go back to it. Paul suggests maybe they could and then they kiss.
Shawn asks if Belle has heard from John since he left. Belle says not yet but she’s sure he will call when there’s an update. Shawn feels her phone will be ringing soon then because there’s no one more motivated to find Megan than John and Steve. Belle wishes she could do what they are doing and throw herself in to the search to take her mind off all the grief in a way that’s productive. Belle adds that even if they find Megan and she ends up behind bars forever, it doesn’t really change anything for her because no matter how much Megan or Orpheus pays, she doesn’t get any more time with her mom.
Kayla and Marlena question Dr. Rolf about where Megan is and what she’s done with Kate. Dr. Rolf tells them not to worry because thanks to Kate, he will be able to determine if his scientific genius has been successful again. Dr. Rolf calls Kate a test subject. Kayla argues that test subjects volunteer in legitimate medicine and she’s pretty sure Kate didn’t volunteer. Dr. Rolf argues that she was fortunate to be chosen to be the first recipient of his new serum.
Hope asks John and Steve about thinking that Megan took the orchid. Steve confirms it was the only thing that could’ve cured Marlena, Kayla, and Kate. John declares that Megan Hathaway is responsible for their deaths. Hope is shocked and says that can’t be. Hope tells them that she’s so sorry as she can’t even imagine what they have been going through. Hope says after all these years, Megan is still causing so much destruction and pain to the people she loves. Steve says she’s obviously as vindictive and deranged as she ever was. Hope points out that it all started with Megan’s obsession with Bo.
Bo informs Kate that all the doors in this place lock automatically. Kate points out that she just let herself out of the room she was in. Bo guesses it must have been open a little bit. Kate asks if he’s telling her that they can’t get out of here. Bo tells her that they have to go back and get Megan’s keys which Kate agrees to do. They go back in where Megan remains knocked out. Bo questions what she did to her. Kate repeats that she knocked her out and says to get the keys and get out of here. Bo checks on Megan and confirms she’s out cold. Kate tells Bo to just get the keys but Bo starts trying to wake Megan up. Kate argues about the keys but Bo warns her to stay where she is. Bo wakes Megan up. Megan asks what happened. Bo informs her that she got cold cocked and asks if she’s alright. Megan says she thinks so, no thanks to Kate. Bo thinks Kate is now figuring out that she got played.
Belle tells Shawn that she doesn’t have to tell him what it’s like. Shawn gets how terribly difficult it is for her. Shawn relates to having gone through this with his dad. Belle knows how much he still misses him and assures he’d be really proud of everything he’s accomplished and dedicating his entire life to protecting people. Belle says that Shawn honors his father every day by doing that. Shawn can’t help but think of all that his father missed out, like seeing Claire grow up along with Ciara and her new baby. Belle states that his dad and her mom should both still be with them. Shawn says he thinks about him every day but he made peace with the fact that he’s gone and he thinks a big part of being able to do that is that he understands it. Shawn says his father’s death was terrible and tragic but it made sense while what happened with Marlena made no sense at all. Shawn tells Belle that he’s so sorry and that he would do anything to give her more time with her mom and to be able to help her with this pain.
Marlena questions what serum Dr. Rolf is talking about. Dr. Rolf says the details are not his to disclose and suggests they direct any questions to Megan. Dr. Rolf warns that the serum could be life changing and not just for Megan.
Hope tells John and Steve about how Megan never got over Bo, who was her high school sweetheart. Hope explains about how Megan and Bo both thought the other broke up with them, but it was manipulated by Megan’s mother and when Megan found out, something broke inside of her, and that’s when she became obsessed with Bo and desperate to get him back.
Bo asks Megan if she’s sure she’s alright. Megan assures that she’s fine and asks Bo to help her up, so he does. Megan remarks that Kate is stunned silent. Bo responds that Kate wouldn’t shut up earlier. Kate tries to leave but Bo pulls a gun on her and says she’s not going anywhere.
Paul and Andrew kiss until Paul stops and wonders if this isn’t a good idea. Paul assures that he definitely wants it but reminds him that they tried before and it didn’t work out, so he worries they are setting themselves up for more disappointment. Paul acknowledges that they have a great connection and he would love to see where that takes them, but finding time to be together last time was so hard so maybe they should cut their losses now before they get too deep. Andrew agrees that they live so far apart and their lives are so busy so there’s a really good chance it might not work, but there’s a chance it might and that’s a chance he’d like to take, so they continue kissing.
Marlena and Kayla question Dr. Rolf about his serum being life changing but not just for Megan, so they want to know who else’s life it’s going to change. Dr. Rolf mocks them having so many questions. Marlena asks if the answers have anything to do with the cryogenic chamber in the room. Kayla asks if the serum will affect whoever was in the chamber. Dr. Rolf says that was one of his earliest prototypes and a very successful project. Marlena asks how it was successful. Dr. Rolf reveals that he kept the subject in a cryogenic state for nearly a decade. Kayla questions who the subject was.
Kate tells Bo to put down the gun. Bo tells her that she’s not going anywhere. Kate responds that they are both leaving. Bo warns that she will regret it if she pushes him. Megan adds that she wouldn’t test him. Kate doesn’t know what Megan has put Bo through but argues that he doesn’t even know what he’s saying. Kate urges Bo to trust her and let her help him. Kate says they aren’t strangers and have known each other for years. Kate reminds Bo that she was married to Victor and Bo was married to her daughter. Megan argues that he doesn’t need a history lesson and tells Kate they are going to pick up from before she rudely assaulted her and then phase two will finally begin. Kate encourages Bo not to listen to Megan and to ditch her so they can be free and return home to the people they love. Megan is disappointed in Kate’s lack of gratitude, reminding her that she saved her life and now she’s chosen her to be the first recipient of her new serum. Kate refuses to be the recipient of a potentially fatal drug. Megan argues that it won’t kill her but it does need to be tested. Kate finds the vial of the serum on the floor and picks it up.
John tells Hope that they don’t give a damn what Megan’s motivation is as they just want to track her down and make her pay. Steve asks if Hope found anything while poking around. Hope confirms there’s no sign of Megan or any idea of where she went. John guesses they hit a dead end. Steve disagrees and says there has to be a way to figure out where Megan went. Hope agrees and declares that maybe there is.
Belle thanks Shawn for always knowing exactly what to say. Shawn doesn’t think he does most of the time and he only does in this case because he’s been there. Shawn says they never stop missing them but time definitely helps. Shawn notes that there are days that he feels the loss of his dad like it just happened yesterday and there’s other days that he remembers all the fun times they had. Shawn adds that it helps to remind himself of how blessed he is to spend his life with Belle. Belle says she loves him with all her heart and she needs him so much right now. Shawn assures that she always has him. Shawn reminds Belle that not only do they have each other, but an incredible daughter and a great big family to lean on. Shawn declares that he is now officially off the clock so he suggests they go home to lean on each other on the couch.
Paul and Andrew end up having sex. They talk about it being perfect. Andrew asks if they should talk about where they go from here. Paul says they should but not right now and kisses him until they are interrupted by Andrew getting a call from Hope. Hope tells him that she needs a favor; she needs to get in to see Harris Michaels.
Kayla tells Dr. Rolf that they know he kept Stefan DiMera on ice for four years but a decade is quite a feat. Marlena agrees and says the person must have been very important. Kayla can’t stop thinking about who it might be. Kayla asks what if it’s somebody famous. Marlena and Kayla talk about how maybe it was someone from Salem that they all knew. Dr. Rolf says if he wasn’t in a hurry to complete his experiment, he would applaud their creativity. Marlena says they just want to know who was in the tube. Kayla adds that they are pretty sure it wasn’t Stefano since Rolf took his essence and put it in Steve. Dr. Rolf calls that another hugely successful experiment of his, ruined by Stefano’s misguided children. He calls it a terrible loss because of Chad and Tony. Kayla and Marlena demand that he tell them who was in the tube.
Bo tells Kate to hand the vial over. Megan asks if Kate really thinks she will get out without Bo shooting her dead or if she thinks a speech about how they used to be family is going to change his mind. Bo tells Kate again to give the vial to Megan. Megan states that whatever kinship they used to have is long over. Megan orders Kate to stop wasting time and get on with it. Kate says fine but then drops the vial and smashes it. Megan calls that stupid. Kate thinks it was a smart move to not let her make her the guinea pig. Megan calls it arrogant of Kate to congratulate herself on making one of the most idiotic decisions ever because the only reason that she was keeping Kate alive was to make sure the serum worked, but now that the serum is gone, Kate is of no further use to her. Megan declares there’s no point in dragging this out any further and instructs Bo to go ahead and kill Kate.
