Update written by Joseph

Eric questions why he would help Xander after he blew up his marriage. Xander clarifies that he’s not asking for himself, but for Sarah. Xander explains that Kayla gave Sarah the antidote so she’s completely back to normal but for some reason, she doesn’t know that their daughter Mickie died.

Nicole questions Sarah showing up at her door and saying she’s there to get her baby. Sarah tells her that Mickie was there which Nicole questions. Sarah says that Xander said she was with Eric and since Eric and Nicole lived together, she assumed she was here. Nicole doesn’t know what Xander told her. Sarah says it’s okay because she knows that Nicole told Eric that Mickie is his daughter.

Lani questions Paulina getting to make all the decisions and she has to go along with them. Paulina says when it comes to protecting her from a murder charge, yes. Paulina declares that she’s done arguing and she’s going to plead guilty while Lani lives a long, happy life with her family. Lani says she can’t let Paulina take the fall for something she did.

Eli and Abe discuss the possibility of Lani shooting TR which would mean Paulina is innocent and covering for her daughter.

Chanel runs in to Julie in the town square and says she was on her way to see Paulina at the police station. Julie feels Paulina deserves a medal for what she did. Julie knows Chanel’s love and support will mean the world to Paulina. Chanel gives Julie a package from the bakery and sends her love to Eli. Julie thanks Chanel and tells her to tell Paulina that everyone knows she did nothing wrong. Julie then walks away.

Abe and Eli wonder if Paulina didn’t kill TR but is protecting Lani. Eli points out that they can’t jump to any conclusions, but if there’s more to the story, he can’t be blindsided by it so he needs to talk to Lani.

Paulina reminds Lani that if she confesses, she will lose her career, her husband, and her kids. Lani asks about what Paulina will lose. Paulina argues that she will claim self defense and a jury might believe her. Paulina feels that what happened is entirely on her because she is the one who made the mistake of trusting TR and getting close again. Lani understands that she thought he changed. Paulina says she knew better and asks Lani to let her do this. Lani argues that she will still know what she did and asks how to do her job like that. Lani asks how to face her husband or talk to her children about courage and honesty without being a complete hypocrite. Lani doesn’t want to live like that. Lani declares that she needs to tell Rafe the truth right now.

Eli mentions that Lani just went to the police station to see Paulina but he doesn’t think this can wait. Abe questions him going there to see her. Julie arrives and says she was so worried when Eli wasn’t in his room but a nurse said she would find him here. Julie questions what Eli is doing out of bed. Eli says he just came to say hi to Abe and see what he’s been in to since he’s been asleep. Julie reminds Eli that he collapsed last time he got out of bed. Eli assures that he’s feeling better now. Julie worries that he just got out of a coma so she wants to take him back to his room to rest. Eli says he’s sorry but he has to run as he rushes out of the room. Julie questions what could possibly be so urgent.

Paulina tells Lani that she can’t tell Rafe the truth. Lani says it’s not up to her. Paulina refuses to let her do this. Chanel then arrives and questions what they are arguing about. Paulina tells her that Lani was just blaming herself for not seeing through TR sooner. Paulina tells Lani to go back to the hospital and be with Eli which Chanel agrees with. Lani decides to go then. Lani hugs Chanel and exits.

Eric is shocked to know that Sarah thinks Mickie is alive. Xander says her memory is completely fine otherwise but around the baby, there’s this glitch. Eric questions Sarah being released from the hospital then. Xander says he thought it was too soon but her brain scans came back normal. Eric asks if this glitch will wear off. Xander says it hasn’t yet since Sarah went straight to the nursery and thought Mickie had kidnapped, so he panicked because Sarah was demanding answers so he may have told her that the baby was with Eric. Eric questions why he didn’t just tell her the truth. Xander says he panicked on how to protect Sarah and he couldn’t let her go through the pain of finding out her baby died all over again. Eric warns that maybe Xander was just afraid that Sarah was going to hate him all over again.

Sarah tells Nicole that Xander explained everything about Nicole telling Eric that he is Mickie’s father. Sarah talks about keeping this huge secret in the first place. Sarah asks about taking her baby home and when she hears noise, she assumes Eric is getting up. Sarah is then shocked to see Rafe come out from the shower in just a towel. Sarah questions if Nicole is cheating on Eric and then asks why Rafe is here. Nicole tells her that she doesn’t understand. Sarah doesn’t think she wants to and says she just needs to get her baby, Mickie, which Rafe questions. Sarah asks why he’s looking at her like that. Nicole tells Sarah that Mickie is not here which Sarah questions. Nicole then reveals that she and Eric have split up.

Eric tells Xander to admit he lied to Sarah because he’s a selfish coward. Xander argues that he was protecting Sarah because she’s been through enough. Eric questions him justifying him lying about her own child. Xander feels he couldn’t put her through all of that again. Eric argues that he’s just trying to prevent his own suffering. Xander asks if Eric is going to help Sarah or not. Eric argues that Maggie cannot be okay with this. Xander admits that she’s not and is adamant that he tell Sarah the truth which he plans to do. Eric demands that he tell Sarah the truth today because Sarah is going to notice when no one brings the baby home. Xander looks over at Eric’s bag packed and says he might have a fix for that.

Chanel asks how Paulina is doing. Paulina says she’s slept in worst places. Chanel gives her comfort food from the bakery. Paulina starts to eat and praises the food while Chanel tries to tell her that they need to talk. Paulina continues on so Chanel yells at her to stop talking about the damn pastry.

Eli goes back to his hospital room and starts getting dressed. Lani arrives and questions what he’s doing. Eli responds that he was coming to talk to her. Lani urges him to get back in the bed as he’s nowhere near ready to leave the hospital. Lani reminds Eli that they waited so long for him to wake up so he shouldn’t push it. Eli apologizes. Lani says she’s here now so she asks what is so important. Eli says it’s about Paulina because he’s not so sure that she’s guilty.

Julie asks Abe why Eli was racing out of here. Abe says that Eli is concerned with the situation with Lani. Julie thinks Paulina deserves a parade, not prison time. Abe knows she feels strongly about this. Julie points out that TR nearly killed Eli, Abe, and Lani, so he had to be stopped if Paulina hadn’t blown him away. Abe then reveals to Julie that is not what happened.

Eric feels he isn’t going to like Xander’s fix. Xander suggests telling Sarah that Eric and Nicole went on a trip together and took Mickie with them which will buy him time to break the news to Sarah, since she still thinks Eric and Nicole are together. Eric reminds Xander that Nicole has moved on with Rafe. Xander tells him to pretend and says they’ll be doing a good deed for Sarah. Xander asks if he will do it, but gets a call from Maggie, who informs him that Sarah is gone. Xander realizes she must be looking for Mickie and runs out of the Pub, leaving Eric having doubts at the Pub.

Sarah questions Nicole about her and Eric splitting up and asks what happened. Nicole calls it complicated. Sarah says it doesn’t matter as she just needs to find Eric and get her baby. Sarah thanks her and quickly exits.

Julie asks what Abe means by saying that’s not what happened. Julie goes over TR attacking Abe and then turning on Paulina when Lani came in and then Paulina shot him to save the people she loved. Abe admits there was no love lost between he and TR because TR was obviously just a horrible man. Abe believes that TR convinced himself that he cared for Lani as his daughter, so he doesn’t think TR would have killed her because he loved her. Julie argues that he wouldn’t have shot her husband if he loved her that much. Abe says she’s probably right. Julie insists that TR only cared about himself and Paulina knew it, so she shot him, which makes her a hero to her.

Paulina questions what has gotten in to Chanel. Chanel complains that Paulina is going on like they are lounging at the pool instead of being at the police station. Chanel suggests that she take this seriously. Paulina argues that her lawyers are taking care of everything. Chanel says that doesn’t mean she’s going to walk away like she’s innocent. Paulina assures that she’s worrying over nothing. Chanel worries about Paulina getting put away for years and cries that she’s scared as she doesn’t know what she’ll do if she loses her.

Lani questions Eli not thinking Paulina is guilty and asks why he would say that. Eli says there’s a few things and brings up Lani first telling him that Paulina “said” she shot TR. Eli finds the phrasing strange and asks why she would put it that way if she was there and why she wouldn’t just say that Paulina shot TR. Lani says she was upset and just saw her biological father get murdered, so she guesses she wasn’t forming perfect sentences. Lani asks if there’s anything else Eli wants to grill her on. Eli decides they can talk about it later but Lani insists on doing it now and says she’s ready for his next question. Eli brings up TR being shot with Lani’s service weapon. Lani sticks to Paulina’s story that she grabbed the gun from her holster. Eli then reveals that he just finished talking to Abe, who thinks he heard Paulina say “what have you done”. Eli asks why she would say that. Lani asks how she should know. Eli suggests maybe Paulina was asking Lani that question, because Lani shot TR.

Xander goes to Nicole’s in a panic, asking where Sarah is. Nicole responds that she left to go find her baby that died years ago and asks if Xander cares to explain what that’s about.

Sarah goes to the Brady Pub. Eric tells her that it’s so nice to see her and asks how she’s feeling. Sarah says she’s great which Eric is happy to hear. Eric says he’s sorry for everything she went through. Sarah doesn’t remember much of it but says she’s fine and out of the hospital, so she feels like her old self and ready to be a good parent to their child. Sarah talks about Eric finding out he is her baby’s father and that he and Nicole have broken up. Eric says things are fine between them and they have both moved on. Sarah mentions just going to Nicole’s and seeing her with Rafe. Sarah says she is desperate to hold their little girl, so she asks Eric to go get her.

Julie guesses that Abe never got the chance to tell Paulina about his feelings. Abe confirms TR knocked him out before he could. Julie argues that Abe should be running to the police station now. Abe thinks Paulina has a little more on her mind now than his feelings. Julie asks what could be more important than telling her that he wants her back. Abe doesn’t think it’s the right time. Julie asks if he’s changed his mind.

Paulina assures Chanel that she’s not going to lose her. Chanel cries that she doesn’t know that and brings up Paulina promising everything would be okay when her dad died. Paulina promises not to leave her no matter what. Chanel worries that she might not have a choice. Chanel can’t believe this is happening as they were finally in a good place after years of conflict and fighting. Chanel loved being close to her and being able to see her whenever she wants. Paulina says that’s not going to change. Chanel wants to believe her but after her dad, Johnny, and Allie, she cries that no one ever stays. Paulina insists that she’s not going to prison as she has complete confidence in her lawyers and needs Chanel to have confidence in her. Paulina adds that if the worst happened, she won’t be alone since she would still have her grandma. Chanel argues that she lives in Miami and she’s not moving back there when she has her Bakery to run. Paulina encourages that Chanel has family here too in Lani and Eli and their kids, who will always be there for her. Chanel says she loves them but they’re just not her mom.

Lani questions Eli thinking he shot TR. Eli clarifies that he’s just asking. Lani argues that it’s something Abe may have heard while barely conscious. Eli brings up the other reasons. Lani questions Eli interrogating her. Eli knows she understands as a cop. Lani remarks that she didn’t realize that she was a suspect. Eli points out that she still hasn’t answered his question. Eli adds that he’s on her side no matter what and he wants to help her, but he can’t unless he knows exactly what’s going on. Eli assures that whatever it is, they will get through it together. Eli tells Lani that he loves her but he has to know who really shot TR. Lani then admits that it was her. They sit together as Lani explains that it all happened so fast. Lani tells him that she walked in to Paulina’s apartment with her gun drawn and she saw TR about to hit Paulina while Abe was on the floor bleeding. Lani thought about all the pain caused by TR and she wanted to be the one to stop him, so she did. Lani says she went there to arrest him for what he did to Eli but she killed him. Eli argues that she saved Abe’s life. Lani points out that she also shot an unarmed man. Lani swears that she was going to take responsibility but Steve walked in and Paulina just blurted out that she shot TR. Lani says she was in shock, so she just went along with it, but not anymore. Lani tells Eli that she went to the police station to tell Paulina that she wasn’t going to let her take the blame but Paulina said she would lose her career, family, and her whole life. Lani states that Paulina begged her to let her do this for her but she cannot let Paulina go to prison for her. Lani declares that Paulina won’t listen to her but maybe Eli can help convince her that she can’t do this and that it’s crazy but Eli responds that maybe it’s not crazy.

Abe assures Julie that he hasn’t changed his mind about Paulina but he thinks the timing is off. Julie disagrees. Abe questions Julie thinking that he should declare his love while Paulina is sitting in a jail cell. Julie can’t think of anything more romantic. Abe appreciates her encouragement but thinks it’s best if he waits. Julie says she can’t make him but warns him not to wait too long because she thinks it’s something Paulina needs to hear as something she can hang on to.

Xander questions why Nicole would tell Sarah that she broke up with Eric. Nicole says because it’s the truth. Xander calls it thoughtless but says he can still save this. Xander suggests Nicole tell Sarah that she and Eric got back together and are now heading off on a late honeymoon. Nicole questions Xander wanting her and her ex-husband to pretend that they are on vacation with his baby daughter that died tragically years ago. Nicole calls it insane. Xander asks her to be a team player but Nicole refuses. Xander guesses this is payback for him blowing up her marriage to Eric, so now she wants his plan to go bust. Nicole argues that it won’t help and will only make things worse. Nicole says the longer Xander doesn’t come clean with Sarah, the harder it will be to keep Mickie’s death a secret. Rafe agrees but Xander says no one asked him. Nicole reminds Xander that he’s been down this road before and every day that he tries to keep this a secret, the more he loses control and risks Sarah finding out the truth from someone else. Nicole encourages that if Xander goes to her now, he can make sure she hears it in a caring, sensitive way, from him.

Sarah asks Eric if Mickie is upstairs but Eric says no. Sarah asks if she’s with Marlena but Eric says she’s not with his mom, his dad, or his sister. Sarah questions where she is then. Eric takes Sarah to sit down. Sarah asks what’s going on. Eric says there is something he needs to tell her and it won’t be easy to hear. Sarah says he’s scaring her and asks if it’s about Mickie. Eric declares that it’s time that she knows.

Lani questions Eli not thinking it’s crazy for Paulina to go to prison for something that she did. Eli thinks Paulina has a point that Lani has a lot more to lose. Lani argues that they are police officers and took an oath to uphold the law and be accountable for their actions. Eli argues that he took a much more important oath to her. Eli declares that he cannot let her go to prison as he and their kids need her. Eli warns that she’d be looking at hard time. Lani asks what he’s saying. Eli thinks it would be better for everyone if she just let Paulina take the fall.

Paulina tells Chanel that they’ve been through scary times before and encourages her to remember how strong they are. Chanel doesn’t feel strong. Paulina hugs Chanel as she cries and assures they’ve got each other. Paulina promises her that everything will be just fine.

Rafe helps Nicole find one of Henry’s toys. Rafe thought what Nicole said to Xander was very nice. Nicole says she kept a lot of secrets that she wishes she hadn’t, so she thought she would help him out. Rafe calls that very generous considering everything Xander had done to her. Rafe calls it one more reason that he loves her as they kiss.

Xander returns to the Pub to see Sarah crying in Eric’s arms. Xander questions what’s going on. Sarah turns to Xander and asks how could he as she then storms off. Xander glares at Eric and sarcastically thanks him.

Update written by Joseph

Lani has a nightmare about TR confronting her and questioning how she could murder her own father. Lani then wakes up in a panic in Eli’s hospital room, startling Eli, who asks what’s wrong.

Abe lays in his hospital bed and remembers hearing Paulina ask “what have you done”

Paulina sits in the interrogation room, handcuffed to the table. Paulina thinks back to TR’s initial apology to her, then to when he proposed to her, and then to their final argument with Lani shooting TR. Rafe enters the room and brings her a coffee, calling it a long night for both of them. Rafe sits down and tells Paulina that he has some questions about the shooting of TR Coates.

Nicole sits at home, on the phone with Chloe talking about what a horrible night it’s been from almost losing Allie to The Devil and TR Coates getting shot, Rafe has been at the station all day so she’s going to take the day off and spoil him. There’s a knock at the door so Nicole hangs up and answers it expecting Rafe, saying she’s been waiting all night to make love to him, but instead it is Eric at the door. Nicole apologizes. Eric says it’s okay as he should’ve called first but he wanted to see how Allie was doing. Nicole assures that she’s surrounded by people who love her and they wil take really good care of her. Nicole invites Eric in and informs him that Allie is with Lucas as they took Henry to the park to feed the ducks. Eric reminds Nicole of when they used to do that with Holly. Eric asks how Holly is doing. Nicole says she’s still processing what happened between them but she’s doing better now. Nicole adds that Holly would love to see Eric if he could come back in the afternoon but Eric reveals he can’t, because he’s leaving Salem.

At the Kiriakis Mansion, Xander and Maggie argue about what to tell Sarah. Maggie suggests the truth and asks what Xander is thinking. Sarah then comes in to the room, stating that the baby’s room is empty and questions where her baby Mickie could be.

Steve visits Abe in the hospital and asks how he’s feeling. Abe responds that he’s ready to get the Hell out of here and asks how Tripp is. Steve reveals that thanks to The Devil, Tripp almost lost his life saving Allie’s and Kayla actually pronounced him dead, but then they got their miracle and Tripp came back to them, so he’s going to be just fine. Abe calls that great news. Steve adds that Ava is with Tripp and refusing to leave his side, so he figured he’d come check on Abe. Abe mentions being concerned about Paulina.

Rafe brings up Paulina saying she wouldn’t answer questions without her lawyer present, so he offers to get her lawyer there but Paulina says she’s okay and has nothing to hide. Rafe gives Paulina a paper, waiving her counsel, which she signs. Rafe begins the recording and tells Paulina to start by telling him what happened on the night that TR was shot. Paulina tells him that TR came over and talked her in to going away with him. Paulina adds that when she got back in to the living room after packing, she heard a noise and found Abe lying on the floor, unconscious and bleeding. Paulina says she wanted to call for help but TR wouldn’t let her and grabbed her phone, then raised his arm like he was going to hit her. Paulina brings up vowing a long time ago to never let TR hurt her again. Rafe asks then what happened. Paulina claims she shot the son of a bitch. Rafe shows her a photo of the gun and asks Paulina to confirm it’s the weapon she used to shoot TR. Paulina says that it is. Rafe then identifies the gun as Lani’s service weapon and questions how a cop’s gun ended up in Paulina’s hands to shoot the shot that killed a man.

Lani informs Eli that she had a bad dream about TR. Eli says he’s sorry but TR was a nightmare while he was alive. Lani agrees and says TR came so close to killing Eli. Lani brings up walking in to Paulina’s apartment but stops. Eli points out that she still hasn’t told him what went down at Paulina’s other than Paulina saying she shot TR. Lani thinks back to shooting TR. Eli then asks her what happened.

Abe mentions hearing that Steve came in to Paulina’s apartment right after TR was shot. Steve confirms that Abe was on the floor and TR had been shot, but he’s been wondering what exactly happened before he got there. Abe asks what Lani and Paulina told him. Steve says that Paulina said she shot TR, but he’s just not clear on how that happened. Abe asks what he means. Steve explains that Paulina apparently used Lani’s gun and questions how she got her hands on a service weapon.

Paulina tells Rafe that she’s sorry as she got ahead of himself and rushed straight to the shot. Rafe tells her to take her time. Paulina repeats that TR was about to hit her and that’s when Lani came in and told TR to put his hands up and step away from her. Paulina claims that Lani put her gun down to arrest TR but she grabbed it and shot TR right through his heart.

Lani tells Eli that this isn’t his case and encourages him to focus his energy on getting out of the hospital bed and back in to their bed. Eli says that sounds like a plan as they kiss. Eli tells Lani that he’s still worried about her and Paulina. Lani admits she needs to get to the police station to check on Paulina. Lani tells Eli that she’s grateful for him and that he’s going to be okay. They say I love you to each other as Lani then exits the room.

Rafe questions why Paulina shot TR since it doesn’t sound like he was a threat to her in that moment. Paulina argues that TR shot Eli and attacked Abe, who was out cold and bleeding on the ground, so she couldn’t let him get away with that. Rafe points out that she said he was about to be handcuffed which meant he wasn’t a threat. Paulina brings up how many times the cops came when he beat her back in the day but they let him go and he gave her a worse beating. Rafe apologizes and acknowledges that the way police responded to domestic violence in the past was criminal but they’ve changed things and he’s sure they can still do better. Paulina thanks him for that. Rafe brings up that Paulina knew that wasn’t going to happen this time since she said Lani was about to handcuff TR and take him away. Rafe asks what happened, if TR resisted arrest, or if Lani did something. Paulina quickly says that Lani did nothing wrong. Rafe states that right now, he’s more concerned with what Paulina did and establishing her motives for shooting an unarmed man. Rafe adds that he wants to help her but he needs her to tell him the truth. Paulina guesses she just lost it and shot TR. Paulina adds that he deserved it. Rafe asks if she wants to add anything to that. Paulina says no and that she’s given her statement which is all she has to say. Rafe decides they will continue this later then and exits the room.

Abe wonders how Paulina did get her hands on a service weapon. Steve says he doesn’t know and asks if Abe saw or heard anything. Abe says he was out of it but then realizes maybe he did hear something which Steve questions. Eli then enters the room and asks if they are having a party without him. Steve says it’s good to see him up and around. Steve decides to get back to Tripp and let them catch up. Steve tells Abe they will be talking and tells Eli to take care of himself as he then exits. Eli sits at Abe’s side. Abe jokes about Eli finally waking up from his two month nap. Eli is just sorry about what Lani and Paulina have gone through because of TR. Eli remarks that Paulina sure did make TR pay for shooting him.

Paulina tells herself to stay cool and stick to the story. Lani then enters the room. Lani tells Paulina that she and Chanel wanted to come yesterday but they wouldn’t let them see her. Paulina asks how Chanel is doing with all this. Lani says she’s shaken and still worried about her. Paulina assures that she’ll be just fine. Lani responds that she’s not because they both know it should be her sitting here, not Paulina.

Eric tells Nicole that he’s glad she was home because he didn’t want to leave town without saying goodbye. Nicole then asks if he’s leaving Salem because of her.

Xander claims that Sarah’s baby Mickie is with Eric. Sarah is upset and asks Maggie to give her and Xander a moment. Maggie tries to argue but Xander agrees that he and Sarah should sort this out, just the two of them, so Maggie exits. Sarah asks Xander why Mickie is with Eric, believing that Eric doesn’t know he is the baby’s father and that everyone thinks Xander is. Sarah complains that none of this makes sense, unless something has changed. Sarah thought Xander didn’t have a problem keeping the secret about her baby and asks why he’s acting like he lost his mind. Xander then informs Sarah that there is something he has to tell her. Sarah asks what he has to tell her. Xander reveals that Eric knows that he is Mickie’s father. Sarah questions if Xander told him and then guesses that it was Nicole. Sarah asks why she would do that after being so afraid of losing Eric and swearing that she would keep the secret. Sarah decides she’s going to get her baby and have a word with Nicole but Xander tells her that she can’t. Xander asks her to hear him out for a second. Xander talks about how none of them knew if she would be okay again when she got injected with the antidote. Sarah insists on going to get her baby but Xander repeats that he can’t. Sarah worries that Xander isn’t telling her something about her daughter. Xander claims it’s not about Mickie but about Sarah. Xander then claims that he and Maggie were planning a big Scottish breakfast to welcome her home. Sarah says that’s sweet of him but she’s going to Eric and Nicole’s. Xander claims that Sarah can’t go wearing that and rips the back of her shirt to say there is a hole in it. Xander then tells Sarah to go get changed, they will have breakfast, and then go get Mickie together. Sarah agrees and says she’s very excited to see her little girl as she heads upstairs.

Eric asks Nicole why she would think he’d be leaving town because of her. Nicole suggests it’s because of her seeing Rafe. Eric assures that he’s really happy for her. Nicole knows what they had is over and they are on different paths, but every time she sees him, a tiny part of her still has a hard time letting him go. Nicole asks if they are still friends. Eric calls her the best friend he ever had. Nicole says their love made her a better person. Eric feels the same about himself. Eric then goes to leave. Nicole stops him and hugs him, right as Rafe shows up.

Lani tells Paulina that she doesn’t feel good about this and that it’s wrong. Paulina insists that she knows what she’s doing. Lani argues that Paulina didn’t kill TR. Paulina argues that they only know what they tell them and urges her to stick to the story. Lani asks how to do that since she cannot avoid Rafe forever and will have to answer really tough questions like how Paulina killed TR with her gun. Paulina explains that she just told Rafe that she grabbed Lani’s gun while she was trying to arrest TR. Lani argues that she can’t just be quiet and let Paulina take the blame for something she did. Lani declares that she’s going to confess to killing TR but Paulina says like hell she is.

Eli jokes with Abe about the hospital jello. Eli notes Abe being quiet and asks if he’s okay. Abe says he’s fine but Steve said that Paulina used Lani’s gun to shoot TR. Eli is shocked as he just assumed Paulina used TR’s gun or had her own weapon for personal safety. Abe questions Lani not saying anything about that. Eli says Lani was stressed and upset but hasn’t offered up any details. Eli then remembers that the only thing Lani said to him was that Paulina said she shot TR and questions why she put it that way since Lani was there and witnessed the shooting.

Paulina reminds Lani that she’s a cop who shot an unarmed man so there’s no defense for that. Lani argues that she came in and saw Abe on the floor, possibly dead, and she already knew that TR had shot the father of her children then she saw him raise his hand to Paulina. Lani says she just lost it. Paulina argues that TR deserved it but Lani can’t confess or they’ll lock her up and she will lose her job, freedom, and years with her husband and children. Lani points out that Paulina will go to prison too. Paulina says maybe but maybe not.

Rafe greets Eric and Nicole. Nicole informs Rafe that Eric was just saying goodbye. Eric announces he’s going back to Africa. Rafe tells him that he will be missed. Eric tells them to take care and exits. Rafe comments on Nicole hugging Eric. Nicole assures it was totally platonic and asks Rafe not to look at her like that. Rafe apologizes but brings up that Nicole and Eric were married recently and he was her first love. Nicole says that’s true but Rafe is her current love and assures that he has no reason to be jealous as they kiss.

Xander looks at a photo of Sarah. Maggie comes back in and asks if Xander told Sarah about Mickie. Xander says he couldn’t, reminding Maggie that the last time he told Sarah that her baby died, he lost her. Maggie points out that he got her back. Xander says he lost her again and now he’s finally got her back, so if he tells her the truth then he will lose her all over again. Maggie worries that the lie is so big. Xander admits he feels horrible about it but he needs to find a way to keep Sarah in the dark about Mickie until he can figure something out. Maggie reminds Xander that Sarah forgave him once so she will forgive him again. Sarah then walks in and questions forgiving Xander for what.

Rafe agrees with Nicole that he shouldn’t be jealous as Eric is part of her past and he has a past too. Rafe thinks being jealous is just part of being in love in a relationship. Nicole admits it can be but she assures that she is absolutely committed to him and only him as they kiss. Rafe suggests taking this to the bedroom or the shower.

Xander claims that he just hoped Sarah would forgive him for having to rush out on a work emergency on her first day back home but he promises to be back soon. Xander suggests Maggie stay with Sarah and enjoy the Scottish breakfast too. Xander kisses Sarah and says he’ll be back soon so they can go get Mickie together as he then exits the mansion.

Abe tells Eli that it’s possible that Lani wasn’t there when TR got shot. Eli says that doesn’t make sense and asks how Paulina could have gotten Lani’s gun. Abe remembers hearing Paulina asking “what have you done”. Abe tells Eli that he thinks maybe he heard Paulina talking to Lani.

Paulina tells Lani that victims of domestic violence like her can suffer from PTSD and think that fighting back is self defense. Paulina suggests she could convince a judge and jury that’s what happened here. Lani can’t imagine what she went through. Paulina says she has stories of what TR did to her that she hasn’t told anyone. Paulina says she made herself forget because she’s still scared of the memories and ashamed she didn’t have the strength to leave him. Lani refuses to let Paulina take the blame when she was TR’s victim and she did find the strength to leave to protect herself and her which took incredible courage. Paulina asks what she did with it since she let TR back in to her life and in to Lani’s life, then he hurt them all. Paulina cries that she won’t let TR hurt her baby girl anymore. Lani gets up and hugs Paulina. Paulina pleads with Lani to let her do this for her. Lani says she can’t. Paulina asks her to let her do it for Eli, Abe, and the twins then because they all need Lani and they can get along without her just fine. Lani cries that she can’t get along without her as she needs her. Paulina argues that she needs Lani to let her do this for her. Paulina declares there is not another word to say about it.

Update written by Joseph

Jake and Ava sit in the town square together, talking about it being cold out in May. Jake gives Ava his jacket and notes Ava’s bad mood. Ava complains about Jake going back to work at DiMera as she thought he was done with them and especially Gabi. Ava guesses despite all the petty things she’s done, Gabi still has her hooks in Jake. Jake disagrees and says that Gabi presented a very good argument for him to go back to DiMera. Jake calls it his birthright to be a part of DiMera, just like Chad and EJ, so he never should’ve let them chase him out of the company in the first place. Jake adds that Gabi seems to think he can help her stabilize the company. Ava comments that it also helps Gabi keep him in her orbit. Ava says there will be business dinners and trips. Jake assures that he and Gabi are done. Ava questions if their relationship is just platonic then like theirs.

Steve joins Kayla at the hospital and says he was at the police station, asking about Allie, but nobody is talking. Steve asks about the baby. Kayla says he’s perfect which Steve says is finally some good news. Steve asks about Ciara. Kayla says she’s fine and that she and Ben are over the moon. Kayla reveals to Steve that Ben and Ciara named the baby Bo, which Steve calls perfect.

At the Brady Pub, Kate calls Lucas and leaves another message, reminding him that she gave him 24 hours and she’s heard nothing from him. Kate adds that everyone is looking for he and Sami, wondering where they are and Allie is in trouble and needs them. Kate knows she promised to keep what Lucas did to Sami a secret, but warns that she is going to have to tell Roman. Roman then appears and asks what she will have to tell him.

Ciara asks Ben if she’s seeing things as she envisions her dad, Bo. Ben responds that if she is, then he is too. Angel Bo speaks as Ciara asks if it’s really him and he came back. Bo says it’s him but he’s not really in the flesh. Ciara guesses he was the presence at the cemetery which Bo confirms. Ciara cries that he saved her son’s life. Ciara tells her baby that this is her granddad. Ciara tells Bo that she named her son Bo. Bo thanks her for that.

Eric asks if Tripp can hear him. The Devil responds that was surprisingly easy as Tripp didn’t even put up a fight, but it seems as if his sacrifice was for nothing because Allie is still going to die and by Tripp’s own hands. Devil Tripp goes to choke Allie on the ground. Marlena screams while Tripp’s voice inside says he won’t let the Devil hurt her. John tries to stop Devil Tripp and says to let him help. Tripp suddenly pulls back and says there is no help. Tripp then runs and dives through the second story window as Marlena screams. Eric and John rush to the window and look out to see Tripp lying bloody in a pile of glass on the ground outside. John says this is bad as he and Eric rush downstairs to get down there. Allie regains consciousness. Johnny tells her that everything is fine. Allie questions where they are and what’s going on. Marlena says they will explain and asks how she feels. Allie says she had awful dreams and there was a baby. Johnny tells her that was Ciara’s baby but he is fine now. Allie questions what she did. Johnny tells Marlena that Allie needs to know, like he did. Johnny then reveals to Allie that she was possessed. Allie says no that was Johnny. Johnny says he was but then The Devil went from him in to her and she fought him so hard. Allie mentions hearing Tripp’s voice just now so she knows he was there and asks where he is.

John and Eric rush to Tripp’s body outside. Eric asks if he can hear him. Tripp asks if Allie is okay. John confirms that she’s fine and he saved her. Tripp asks about the Devil. Eric says he’s gone thanks to him. Tripp brings up the Devil trying to hurt Allie. Tripp starts to pass out. John encourages Tripp to hang in there while Eric calls for an ambulance.

Eric goes back inside the church and informs Marlena that John is getting Tripp in to the ambulance. Allie questions what he’s talking about and where Tripp is because she knows he was there. Allie demands to know what happened to Tripp.

Ciara cries that she never thought she’d see her father again. Bo responds that he’s been watching over her, her mom, her brother, and now her son all along. Ciara worries that The Devil is still out there but Bo assures that the Devil is gone and not coming back so they are safe. Ciara asks how he can be sure. Bo states that it’s because one good man sacrificed everything to get rid of the Devil.

Steve tells Kayla that he sees a lot of Bo in Ciara. Kayla says she does as well all the time and now Ciara is so fierce about her baby just like her dad was. Steve asks Kayla to call their kids to inform them that they have a new cousin. John arrives and informs them that Tripp had an accident which Steve questions. John reveals that he took a fall and it’s not good as he’s in the ER. Kayla instructs Steve to call Ava while she rushes to the emergency room.

Jake jokes about Ava not liking Gabi. Jake brings up Ava mentioning their relationship is platonic and asks if she doesn’t like that very much. Ava suggests she’s in a bad mood because Gabi interrupted them. Jake admits they aren’t having much fun here so maybe they should head home. Ava agrees but then she gets a phone call from Steve. Steve informs Ava that Tripp is in the hospital after there’s been an accident, so she needs to get down there right away. Ava says she’ll be right there and hangs up. Jake asks if everything is okay. Ava informs him that she has to get to Tripp, so they rush off.

Roman guesses whatever Kate has to tell him must be real bad if she’d rather set the table than talk to him. Kate says she’s just trying to figure out how to tell him. Kate knows Roman is worried about Sami and she is too. Lucas then surprisingly enters the Pub and asks if it’s because of him. Kate hugs him and questions where the hell he was and why he didn’t answer her phone calls. Lucas says before he gets to that, he wants to know how Allie is doing and where she is. Roman says they are sorry but they don’t know.

Allie questions if she hurt Tripp while possessed. Eric promises she did not. Johnny encourages that she fought The Devil. Eric notes that she’s in rough shape, so they need to get her home. Allie wants to see Tripp. Eric says the doctors are going to take care of Tripp while they take care of her and she needs to take care of her son, Henry. Allie asks about Ciara’s baby. Johnny says they didn’t know where Ciara was until Allie told them, so because of that, the baby is with his mom and dad now. Johnny, Marlena, and Eric then take Allie to get her home.

Ciara questions what Bo means by someone sacrificed everything. Bo says she will find out soon enough. Bo encourages that they have a whole lot of Bradys and Hortons watching over them and even a Weston or two. Bo acknowledges Ben’s worries about having a baby but encourages him to let it go because it’s all about redemption and Ben has redeemed himself. Bo calls Ben a good man and an okay husband, so if he works real hard, he’ll be a great dad. Ben thanks him. Bo tells Ciara that he loves her but he has to go as there is something he has to take care of. Bo says to tell Hope that he loves her and that he’s really proud of Ciara. Ciara tries to stop him but Bo disappears back in to the light. Ciara tells Ben that she always wanted him to meet her dad as they hug.

Ava and Jake arrive at the hospital. Ava goes to John to ask where Tripp is. John tells her that he was taken straight to the ER and Steve is down there with him so Ava rushes off. Jake asks John if Tripp is going to be okay. John responds that he doesn’t know.

Ava joins Steve in the emergency room as Kayla and the doctors are trying to revive Tripp. Ava asks what happened. Ava then questions why Kayla is stopping and tells her to do it again. Kayla turns and cries that she’s sorry. Steve breaks down crying as Ava continues questioning everything. Kayla announces it’s too late as Tripp is gone. Ava cries in shock that he can’t be gone.

Roman questions why Lucas is just now telling him that Sami is in the hospital. Lucas explains that they were skiing in Italy, Sami wiped out and broke her leg. Lucas says it’s bad and there’s no way Sami could fly right now. Kate questions why he didn’t call. Lucas says the reception was terrible but they did get Kate’s message about Allie, so as soon as they heard that, Sami told him to come home. Roman questions him just leaving Sami there. Lucas argues that she’ll be fine in the hands of trained professionals. Roman decides he needs to go let Marlena know and walks away. Kate questions Lucas as to what the real story is. Lucas says he just told her and asks why he would lie about that. Kate points out that Lucas lied about kidnapping Sami so why not this time.

Ben tells Ciara that now more than ever, he is so glad they named their baby after her dad. Ciara cries that it was Bo at the cemetery and he’s the reason that she was able to step in to the pentagram. Ben agrees that Bo is why they are with their son now. Jake enters and says he heard the good news, but he sees they are crying so he says he’ll come back. Ciara assures it’s fine and calls Jake over to meet Bo. Jake says he’s beautiful and makes sure they are all okay. Ciara calls it a crazy night. Jake looks away, so Ben asks what it is. Jake wishes he didn’t have to tell them this, but Ava got a call about half an hour ago that Tripp was in an accident, though John made it sound like it was more of a sacrifice. Ciara turns to Ben and mentions Bo saying something about a sacrifice. Ciara then asks Jake if Tripp is dead.

Ava pleads with Kayla to do something. Kayla says she’s sorry but there is nothing else that can be done. Ava argues that Kayla’s not sorry and asks if she’s happy now that she got everything she wanted. Ava accuses Kayla of hating that she and Steve had a son, so she killed him. Steve cries for Ava to stop it as their son is dead and Kayla did everything she could, but he’s gone, so she has to stop this out of respect for Tripp. Kayla decides they will leave them alone and exits with the doctors. Ava states that their son is dead and breaks down crying as Steve hugs her.

John sees Kayla come out from the ER and that she’s crying. Kayla reveals to John that she lost him after doing everything she could. John hugs Kayla as she cries.

Johnny and Marlena bring Allie home. Johnny asks if Marlena thinks Tripp is going to make it. Allie comes back in from checking on Henry and says she doesn’t remember the last time she saw him. Marlena assures that he’s been fine and they have all been looking after him. Allie thanks her but says now they need to tell her what she did. Marlena suggests she rest first but Allie insists that she needs to know. Allie asks how the Devil went from Johnny to her. Johnny reminds Allie that she came to the DiMera Mansion to tell him off for telling Tripp about her and Chanel, but that wasn’t him, it was The Devil. Johnny encourages that Allie figured it out and was helping him fight, but then he went in to her. Johnny says he was so worried about her and he missed her. Allie doesn’t remember much but says she missed him too and hugs him.

Lucas asks if Kate thinks he kidnapped Sami. Kate remarks that it wouldn’t be the first time. Roman comes back and says he left a message for Marlena even though she has enough to worry about with Allie. Lucas questions what’s been going on with Allie since they just said she was in trouble. Kate reveals that Allie is possessed by The Devil, shocking Lucas. Eric arrives and announces that she’s not anymore as Tripp saved Allie’s life, but now he’s in the hospital. Eric explains that Allie’s life was at stake as the Devil had control of her, so Tripp called The Devil in to him and then when he had control of Tripp, he tried to kill Allie but Tripp threw himself out the church tower window. Lucas asks if Allie is at the hospital too. Eric informs him that Johnny and Marlena took her home to see Henry. Lucas decides he has to get to her and rushes out of the Pub.

Marlena suggests Allie get some rest. Johnny agrees. Allie says that she’s home and thanks them. Allie hugs them both and then goes to her room. Johnny tells Marlena that if Tripp doesn’t make it, he doesn’t know what that will do to Allie. Marlena then gets a call from John, informing her that it’s bad news.

Jake questions Ciara about her father being here. Ciara says he was at the cemetery and was here just now. Ben brings up John saying that Tripp was trying to save Allie. Jake confirms that Tripp got the Devil to leave Allie and go in to him, but then he jumped out the window. Jake adds that Allie is now fine. Ciara talks about it being terrifying at the cabin and the cemetery. Ben hopes the rest of their son’s life is calmer than the beginning as he’s so glad he is okay. Jake congratulates them and says he’s happy for them. Jake decides to go check on Tripp and exits the room.

John finishes his call and tells Kayla that Marlena sends her love. Jake comes out and guesses that it’s bad. John reveals that Tripp died a few minutes ago. Jake asks where Ava is. Kayla says she’s and Steve are with Tripp in the trauma room. Jake then walks away.

Steve and Ava cry over Tripp’s body. Ava laments not being allowed to know him until after so many lost years and wasted time. Steve encourages her to think of the time they did have with him and that Tripp loved her. Ava cries that she didn’t deserve a son like him and he didn’t deserve a mother like her. Steve says that won’t help. Ava feels maybe she doesn’t deserve to be helped. Ava lays next to Tripp’s body and kisses him goodbye as Steve cries. Jake then enters the room to comfort Ava as she cries that her baby is gone.

Marlena breaks the news to Johnny that Tripp died saving Allie and calls it no greater love. Johnny doesn’t know how they are going to tell her as Allie comes back out from her room and asks what it is. Lucas then shows up at the door. Allie excitedly rushes up to hug him.

Jake offers to take Ava home and hugs her as she cries. Jake tells Steve that he’s so sorry. Jake then walks Ava out of the room. Steve breaks down crying over Tripp, asking why. Kayla returns to the room and informs Steve that she called their kids, Stephanie and Joey, so they wouldn’t hear it from anyone else. Kayla hugs Steve as he cries that he wants his boy. Bo appears in the room as an angel and touches Tripp. Tripp then suddenly comes back to life, shocking Kayla and Steve. Kayla points out that he didn’t have a heartbeat or a pulse. Steve calls out to Tripp. Steve then looks up at the bright light and sees Bo, who smiles and nods, before disappearing again. Tripp then calls out to Steve as they rejoice.

John sees Jake and Ava leaving the hospital. John goes over and tells Ava that he’s sorry and to call if she needs anything. Jake thanks him and they go to get on the elevator but Steve appears and tells Ava to wait.

Steve brings Ava back to the emergency room where Kayla has Tripp sitting up in his hospital bed. Ava can’t believe it’s true. Kayla confirms that he’s alive as Tripp then greets Ava. Ava hugs Tripp as Steve and Kayla look on with smiles.

Ben comes back to the hospital room with Ciara and informs her that she’s not going to believe this but Kayla pronounced Tripp dead, but then he kept back to life. Ciara responds that she does believe it because Bo said he had something left to do. Ben says that if Tripp died, it would’ve killed Allie, Steve, and Ava. Ben just wants everybody to be as happy as they are now. Ciara doesn’t think anybody could be as happy as they are now as they kiss.

Roman finishes a call with Kayla and announces to Kate and Eric that it was close and Kayla thought they lost Tripp, but it looks like he’s going to be just fine.

Lucas apologizes to Allie for not being there for her. Allie says there is nothing he or anyone could have done, except Tripp. Allie asks if they heard about him. Johnny confirms that they did. Allie asks if Tripp died because of her. Lucas tells her not to do that. Allie cries that she never got to tell Tripp how she felt and that she loves him. There’s a knock at the door but Allie says she can’t see anyone. Marlena answers the door and it’s John. John comes in to announce that Tripp pulled through, he’s alive and Kayla thinks he’s going to be just fine. Allie is thrilled and hugs John as she cries.

Tripp asks about Allie. Kayla assures that she will be just fine, thanks to him. Steve calls Tripp a hero. Ava asks him to never scare them like that again. Tripp says he won’t and he loves them. Steve says they love him.

Update written by Joseph

Belle goes to the Brady Pub and asks Eric if there’s any update on Allie or Ciara’s baby. Eric says not yet but Roman is on his way back to take over so he can go back to the search. Eric is sure that Shawn must be working around the clock. Belle remarks that she hasn’t heard from him as things are still not good between them. Eric says he’s sorry and brings up the last time they spoke, Belle said she was ready to move back in. Belle reveals that she was, but Jan Spears beat her to it and Jan is now living in her family’s home with her husband.

John goes to the police station and tells Shawn that he heard Evan was arrested. Shawn confirms he’s awaiting transfer back to the prison. John asks if he said anything about Allie. Shawn informs him that Evan claims he doesn’t know where they are but he did tell them what the Devil has planned for Ben and Ciara’s baby. Shawn reveals that the Devil wants the baby to be his permanent host body on Earth, so if they don’t stop him, he’s going to take control of his nephew’s body and soul.

Marlena leaves the DiMera Mansion and gets a call from Tripp, who hoped she had news about Allie. Marlena informs him that they think she is heading to the cemetery with the baby. Tripp asks if she knows they are alright. Marlena informs him that Allie is still possessed and Johnny went to the cemetery half an hour ago so she’s waiting to hear from him.

The Devil tells Charlie that once the Ritual of Transference is completed, he can get rid of Johnny and Allie. The Devil then places his hands on baby Bo but Ben and Ciara ride up on their motorcycle. Ciara tells The Devil to get the hell away from her son. The Devil responds that he won’t be her son much longer when they become one. Ciara says not while she’s around. Ben tells Ciara to stay back while he gets the baby. Charlie warns Ben not to do that. Ben steps forward but is knocked out by the Devil’s powers. Charlie says he tried to warn him. Charlie argues that they wasted their time coming because his boss has already won this battle.

John assures Shawn that they won’t let the Devil take the baby. Shawn says they have to find him first. Shawn gets a text that Jan’s ankle monitor went off so she must have reached the perimeter of the house. John asks if it didn’t occur to him that Jan might try to take off. Shawn says he doesn’t like Jan living in his house any more than John or Belle does. John tells Shawn to find Allie and the baby while he will deal with Jan Spears because he doesn’t want her anywhere near Belle. John then exits the station.

Eric tells Belle that he doesn’t understand the agreement since Jan is a threat to their community. Belle explains that Shawn talked to the warden about Jan’s high risk pregnancy so they let her out on house arrest and Shawn had to agree because he wasn’t going to let her go back to prison with his baby. Eric encourages Belle not to let this destroy her marriage. Belle asks what she is supposed to do since she is not going to go live with Jan but Shawn feels responsible for the baby. Belle says they are at a standoff and she doesn’t see that ending any time soon.

Marlena assures Tripp that she will call him as soon as she hears from John, Ben and Ciara, or Shawn. Tripp decides he’s going out there. Marlena asks what he can do. Tripp responds that he’s a doctor and he’s not just going to sit around while Allie goes through this. Marlena notes that it sounds like Tripp cares about her. Tripp admits he told himself that he didn’t but that was just his wounded ego, he loves Allie and will do whatever he can to get her out of this nightmare.

Ciara checks Ben’s pulse and is relieved that he is still alive. Ciara tells The Devil that she’s not going to let him get away with this as it’s her baby and she wants him back. Charlie warns that Ciara will fry just like Ben did if she tries. Ciara prays for the strength to fight this battle. A light shines down, confusing Charlie, so Ciara uses this power to try and fight The Devil. Johnny regains consciousness and is surprised to see Ciara. Charlie tells the Devil that they have a problem. The Devil looks to Ciara and says that’s impossible as Ciara calls out to her baby that she’s coming to save him.

Eric asks Belle if Jan will have to go back after having the baby but admits it’s a hard one. Belle declares that Jan has made sure the baby will tie her to Shawn, so she will be in his life forever. Eric tells Belle that she can either let it defeat her or she can hold onto her marriage and fight for it. Belle gets a text from John that Jan’s ankle monitor went off, so he’s on his way there to check it out. Belle worries that Jan could be on the loose and wonders what she’s going to do this time.

John goes to Shawn and Belle’s house. Jan comes out in a night gown, surprised to see John. John says it looks like she put that on for nothing. Jan asks what he’s doing here. John explains that he was with Shawn when Jan’s ankle monitor went off, so he decided to come check on her for him. John adds that Shawn thought Jan might have taken off but he knew she would be right here. Jan argues that she’s on bed rest for the rest of her pregnancy. John asks about the ankle monitor going off. Jan admits she was bored and wanted Shawn to come home to keep her company. John informs her that it looks like she’s stuck with him instead. Jan says he doesn’t have to stay as everything is fine. John says he was actually looking for time alone with her. Jan asks if he’s going to choke her in to another coma. John responds that it’s tempting but no, he’s going to lay out all the reasons why she’s going to stay away from Belle.

Shawn finishes a call with the prison, arguing that he doesn’t care how under staffed they are as he wants Evan off of his hands as soon as possible. Marlena arrives and questions Shawn not answering her calls. Shawn apologizes and says he’s had his hands full with Evan in the interrogation room and Jan’s ankle monitor went off which John is taking care of. Marlena tells Shawn that she will go there when she can. Marlena reveals that she, Johnny, and Susan think they made contact with Allie and it seems she has taken the baby to the cemetery so Ben and Johnny are on their way there. Marlena thinks they need back up and the help of the police on this.

Johnny calls out to Ciara, asking if he can help her. Ciara manages to knock the Devil back and reunites with her baby Bo. Ciara picks up her baby and assures that he’s safe now. The Devil argues that she hasn’t vanquished him and he will win this yet. Charlie asks what’s happening. The Devil complains that the forces of good are at work. Ciara declares that he will never get the baby away from her. The Devil shouts that he has to get away from the light and runs off. Charlie asks where he’s going and if he should go with him. Charlie yells that Ciara ruined everything as he was supposed to raise the baby. Ciara tells him that was never going to happen. Charlie declares that if he doesn’t get to be the father, then neither does Ben. Charlie raises a knife and goes to Ben as Ciara yells for him to stop.

Jan tells John that she couldn’t care less about Belle because everything is different and she is going to be a mother, so her child is her only focus. John doesn’t believe her. Jan claims that Belle doesn’t register on her radar anymore since she walked out on Shawn, so he will be free of her soon. Jan declares that she and Shawn will then raise their baby together and they will be a family. John informs Jan that Shawn and Belle have broken up before but they always find their way back to each other. Jan remarks that everything is different now that she’s carrying Shawn’s baby since a child has a way of bonding the two people who created it. Jan compares it to John and Marlena having an affair until Belle cemented their relationship. John says that’s not how it happened. Jan assures it will happen for her and Shawn.

Eric encourages Belle that if Jan were on the loose, John would have already called her by now and she has to play by different rules since she’s dealing with a high risk pregnancy. Belle gets a text from John, confirming that he’s with Jan at the house. Eric calls that one less thing she has to worry about. Belle hopes for good news about Allie and the baby.

Ciara pleads with Charlie to leave Ben alone. Charlie tells her to say goodbye to Ben. Tripp then arrives and knocks out Charlie from behind with a baseball bat. Ciara thanks Tripp and assures they are fine, but points out Ben is unconscious. Tripp goes to check on Ben and notes that his pulse is steady and reacting so he should be okay. Tripp asks about Allie. Ciara informs him that she ran towards the church and Johnny went after her. Tripp decides to go after them and asks how they are going to get to the hospital since they can’t take the motorcycle. Ben starts to wake up. Ciara says she has her phone so it’s okay. Ciara asks Tripp to be careful.

Devil Allie enters St Luke’s church, remarking that after 25 years, they have come full circle, flashing back to when Devil Marlena destroyed the church and set it on fire. Devil Allie calls it a fitting place for the grand finale and heads up the stairs.

Ben holds his baby for the first time and says he’s perfect. Ben tells baby Bo that he’s his dad and he loves him very much. Ben tells Ciara that she saved him. Ciara declares that the three of them are a family now and are going to protect each other forever.

Jan tells John that she’s already come up with names for the baby and asks what he thinks of “Britney” for a girl or “Lucifer” for a boy which John questions. Marlena then arrives and Jan greets her as Lucifer and goes to hug her but Marlena informs her that she’s not possessed anymore. Jan calls that a bummer because Lucifer was the best friend she ever had except for Claire. Marlena asks John if they can talk privately. Marlena and John then get a text from Johnny. John declares that Johnny is going to need their help.

Belle gets a text that Johnny followed Allie to St. Luke’s Church. Eric decides he’s going. Belle wants to go with him but Eric doesn’t think she should. Belle argues that Allie is her niece. Eric feels the fewer people means the less chance of the Devil finding a host body. Belle insists on wanting to help, so Eric tells her to just pray while he, John, and Marlena handle the rest. Belle tells him to be careful and wishes him luck as they hug. Eric then exits the Pub.

Devil Allie pours gasoline around the upper floor of the church, complaining about the people of Salem thinking they got rid of him. Tripp arrives and sees Johnny holding his head, so he asks if he’s alright. Johnny informs him that Charlie knocked his head into a grave stone. Tripp assures that Charlie got his and asks where Allie is. Johnny thinks she went up to the old choir loft and he was going to go after her but he sent a text to his family for backup. Tripp tells Johnny to wait for them but he’s going up there. Johnny then decides to go with him so they head up the stairs together. The Devil declares that he may have lost his new vessel on Earth but he’s going out in a blaze of glory and taking Allie with him. As Johnny and Tripp rush in, Johnny yells for Allie to stop. The Devil tells them that they couldn’t have picked a better time to arrive as they will have a front row seat to the spectacle. Johnny smells the gasoline. Tripp argues that he can’t set fire to the church. The Devil points out that he’s done it before but this time it will burn to the ground and take half of Salem with it. Johnny tries to urge Allie to fight The Devil. The Devil says that Allie has given up. Tripp brings up Allie’s son, Henry. Allie starts fighting the Devil from within. Tripp and Johnny continue talking about Henry needing Allie and trying to bring her back to them. The Devil declares it’s too late as they treated her like dirt. Johnny argues that he and Allie love each other as he tries to convince her to come back. Tripp tells her to fight. The Devil struggles but manages to knock Johnny across the room. Johnny gets up and says he’s okay. The Devil declares that Johnny and Allie are no match for his powers, so now church and the three of them are all going down in flames.

Belle exits the Pub and runs in to Shawn. Belle says she just got a text from Johnny that Ben and Ciara found the baby and Allie. Shawn confirms that they are taking the baby to get checked out to be safe since Ciara doesn’t know what’s going on with Allie but she was heading to St. Luke’s. Belle informs him that Johnny followed her and Eric is on his way there now. Belle asks if that’s where Shawn is heading. Shawn says there are cops all over St. Luke’s and they have been told to stand back and hold their fire, so if they don’t need him, he’s not going to believe the baby is okay until he sees it with his own eyes. Belle asks to go with him if that’s okay with him. Shawn says that would be great so they walk off together.

Ben and Ciara arrive at the hospital with their baby and show him to Kayla, who calls him beautiful. Kayla asks for the name. Ciara informs her that the baby’s name is Bo Brady Weston. Kayla says that Ciara’s dad Bo would be so proud. Kayla says the baby looks just fine. Ben says they want to hear it from her and nobody else. Kayla says she has a room ready so they go together.

The Devil tells Johnny and Tripp to say their prayers as he raises a lit candle. The flame suddenly goes out of the candle. The Devil says it can’t be. Eric, Marlena, and John then arrive. Eric recites bible verses as the Devil raises a bigger torch but Marlena raises her cross necklace to cause the flame to go out while John throws holy water on Devil Allie. Eric declares he will once again cast out the demon. The Devil remarks that he hopes Eric’s been practicing since he’s only grown stronger since the last exorcism when he took over the next warm body and wreaked havoc on their lives. The Devil suggests maybe next time he’ll try Eric. Marlena shouts that the Devil is done tormenting her family and tells him to go back to Hell. The Devil brings up everything they’ve been through together. Marlena argues that he tried to destroy her, her friends, and her family but it failed because the people in this town love and care about each other. Marlena declares that love will always triumph over evil. The Devil shouts that she has always underestimated his power. John argues that they have the Devil cornered and tells him to go back to where he came from and leave their granddaughter’s body now. The Devil remarks that he was growing tired of Allie anyway, so he will leave her to them but only after killing her in front of them.

Kayla tells Ben and Ciara that their son is in perfect health. Shawn and Belle arrive and join them with hugs. Ben tells them that Ciara was amazing at the cemetery. Ciara worries that Allie still needs their help. Belle explains that Johnny texted them and Eric is on his way to the church with Marlena and John, so she thinks they are going to try an exorcism. Shawn mentions speaking to Rafe and they have the whole church surrounded with cops. Ciara hopes that works as she’s really scared for Allie. Belle encourages that they have God on their side and their family is fierce.

Marlena yells for The Devil to leave her granddaughter alone. The Devil responds that Marlena should’ve let him stay in her because now she’s going to have Allie’s death on her hands. John warns that they will not let the Devil hurt Allie. Eric calls for them to join hands and recite the Our Father prayer. The Devil commands them to stop. Marlena tries to get through to Allie as Devil Allie drops to her knees. Marlena talks about knowing what Allie is going through and urges her to keep on fighting and to draw from their strength to come back to them. The Devil warns them to stop this insanity or he will snap Allie’s neck. Marlena continues talking about how they love her. The Devil then starts to snap Allie’s neck but Tripp yells for The Devil to leave her alone and take him instead.

Ciara hands her baby to Shawn. Shawn jokes about Ciara teaching her kid to ride a motorcycle. Shawn mentions that their father Bo would be really happy right now and he will tell baby Bo all about him. Belle reminds them to take a lot of pictures. Shawn advises them to make sure they enjoy their baby. Belle recalls when Claire was that little. Shawn reminisces on Claire learning to walk. Shawn and Belle talk about having it on video. Shawn hands the baby back to Ciara as he gets a phone call from Jan. Jan tells Shawn that she is craving a cheeseburger. Shawn says he’s busy. Jan thought he was off duty and asks him to be sweet and do this for her because she can’t leave the house and she’s starving.

Tripp tells the Devil to kill him if he wants to kill somebody. Marlena tells him not to. Eric wants to finish what they started but Tripp worries that The Devil will kill Allie before they finish the exorcism. The Devil warns that he’s right. Tripp asks the Devil to come in to him and let Henry have Allie back while taking his soul. The Devil is amazed that Tripp is willing to sacrifice his life for Allie when she didn’t love him and cheated on him as he was always her second choice. Tripp doesn’t care if Allie would rather be with Chanel as he still loves her since she got to him like no one else ever did. Tripp adds that Allie made him feel not alone in this world. The Devil points out that she then betrayed him. Tripp repeats that he still loves her and he always will. Tripp tells The Devil to come in to him and he will gladly sacrifice his life if it means Allie can live and raise Henry. Tripp calls upon The Devil to take him instead. Allie then collapses as Johnny calls out to her. Tripp looks up, revealing he is now possessed by The Devil.

Ciara asks Ben how he’s feeling. Ben says he’s feeling better after being knocked for a loop by the Devil while he can’t believe Ciara just walked in to that and got their baby. Ciara can’t explain it but knew she needed to get to their baby. Ciara says there was a warm comforting light surrounding her that made her feel strong. Ciara adds that it was like a presence. Ben asks what kind of presence. Ciara then sees a bright light shine in to the room. Ciara calls out to her dad as she envisions her father, Bo Brady, dressed in all white and walking in from the bright light to greet her.

Kayla tells Belle at the hospital that Hope sounded so happy on the phone. Belle feels it must have been bittersweet not having Bo to share in that. Kayla thinks they are all feeling that. Belle knows Shawn really misses his dad as she does too. Kayla wonders if Bo could’ve talked some sense in to Shawn. Kayla felt like they were having a moment. Belle admits she felt that too but then Shawn ran off to be with the mother of his new baby.

Shawn goes home and brings Jan a cheeseburger. Jan asks how Ciara is doing. Shawn says she’s good now that she’s back with her baby. Jan asks if he saw the baby. Shawn confirms he did and that they named it after his dad. Jan suggests naming their baby after his mom if they have a girl. Jan mentions having a name in mind but says Hope is more meaningful. Shawn questions Jan not wanting to name it after her own mom. Jan says no because her mom was a horrible person and she’s not naming their child Gertrude. Jan feels her stomach, so Shawn asks if she’s okay. Jan says she’s fine but was just thinking how scared Ciara must have been before finding her baby and thanks God that she did find her.

Ciara asks Ben if she’s seeing things as she envisions her dad, Bo. Ben responds that if she is, then he is too. Bo speaks as Ciara asks if it’s really him and he came back. Bo says it’s him but he’s not really in the flesh. Ciara guesses he was the presence at the cemetery which Bo confirms. Ciara cries that he saved her son’s life. Ciara tells her baby that this is her granddad. Ciara tells Bo that she named her son Bo. Bo thanks her for that.

Eric asks if Tripp can hear him. The Devil responds that was surprisingly easy as Tripp didn’t even put up a fight, but it seems as if his sacrifice was for nothing because Allie is still going to die and by Tripp’s own hands. Devil Tripp goes to choke Allie on the ground. Marlena screams while Tripp’s voice inside says he won’t let the Devil hurt her. John tries to stop Devil Tripp and says to let him help. Tripp suddenly pulls back and says there is no help. Tripp then runs and dives through the second story window as Marlena screams. Eric and John rush to the window and look out to see Tripp lying bloody in a pile of glass on the ground outside.

Update written by Joseph

Lani goes to the police station with a worried look and thinks back to shooting TR. Lani tells herself that she was just trying to wound him but wonders why he’s dead then. Chanel arrives and tells Lani that she just heard Eli is awake, so she asks if he’s okay. Lani confirms that he is. Chanel says she’s so happy for her. Lani calls it the best thing ever. Chanel adds that she also heard about TR and asks if it’s true that Paulina really shot him dead.

Kayla and Steve sit together at home. Kayla talks about everything going on in town and says she’s trying to get her head around Lani’s birth father shooting her husband and then Lani’s mother shot her birth father. Steve comments that Paulina confessed to killing TR but she seems more like a woman who uses words not bullets. Steve adds that he doesn’t know how Paulina could’ve got her hands on what looked like a police issued weapon.

At the hospital, Shawn finishes a call and tells Ben that there’s been no sign of Allie or the car she was driving. Ben tells them that they better be off of the DiMera Crypt since Tony and Anna found the pacifier there hours ago which means Allie had his baby there and God only knows where she is now.

Ciara wakes up in her hospital bed and cries for her baby Bo. Ciara wonders where he is and what is happening to him right now.

Devil Allie holds baby Bo in the cemetery and declares that it’s Friday the 13th, a fitting day to fulfill her plans for him. Bo starts to cry. The Devil tells him not to cry as it will all be over soon.

Susan sits with Johnny in the living room of the DiMera Mansion. Susan looks at a photo of Johnny and Allie, saying she loves the picture of them and how when they were little, they used to be best friends. Susan encourages Johnny to think back to that time and try to get that connection again. Susan has Johnny look at the picture for help and urges him to try one more time. Susan talks about Johnny and Allie’s childhood. Susan declares that they need to find Allie before the Devil makes her do something that she’ll never come back from. Susan has Johnny close his eyes and says they are sending their love and energy to Allie.

The Devil calls baby Bo a handful and says he’s going to need help dealing with him and he has just the person in mind. The Devil calls upon Allie’s rapist, Charlie Dale to raise from the depths of Hell.

Johnny tells Susan that he’s concentrating as hard as he can. Susan says she feels something and then they both get a jolt, causing the photo of Johnny and Allie to drop. Susan says she fears no evil. Johnny asks what that was. Susan says they almost reached Allie but The Devil broke the connection. Susan picks up the photo, now with a cracked frame, and asks who else would have done this.

Charlie rises from his grave and comments on Allie. The Devil clarifies that he’s not Allie, he’s just taking control of her body. Charlie calls it a pretty good choice. The Devil says he did not summon him to talk about his time on Earth but he’s been chosen by him. The Devil talks about falling from grace out of Heaven and how Charlie also knows what it means to be passed over which makes him perfect for his purposes. The Devil orders Charlie to bow before him and swear his allegiance so he knows that he’s worthy to receive his instruction. Charlie then kneels and asks what he desires of him.

Ciara prays to her father, Bo, and cries that she needs his help right now. Ciara prays for Bo to bring her baby back to her. Evan/Christian then enters the room, dressed in hospital scrubs and says they meet again.

Ben tells Shawn that they have to have some idea where Allie is. Shawn insists that they found nothing in the DiMera Crypt or mansion and they set roadblocks around it, so not even the Devil will be able to travel with a newborn. Ben comments that the Devil seems to be damn good at getting help whenever he needs it, plus Evan is still on the loose…

Evan tells Ciara that he heard her prayer to Bo but he doesn’t think he’s coming for her this time. Ciara warns that he has 5 seconds to get out or she will start screaming. Evan grabs a scalpel and threatens to fix it so she and her dad can be together forever if she does that.

Lani tells Chanel that she can’t speak about TR since it’s an open case but confirms that Paulina was arrested. Chanel brings up hearing that TR shot Eli and not the drug dealer which Lani also confirms. Chanel talks about Paulina thinking TR had changed. Lani says it makes her sick to think about that man going through her children. Lani says TR only took care of himself and didn’t change one bit as he lied to everyone. Lani complains that everything out of his mouth was a lie and he wasn’t the only one. Chanel asks who else was lying.

Kayla questions if Steve thinks Paulina is lying about who killed TR and if it could’ve been a policeman. Tripp comes home and greets them. Kayla offers to make him dinner. Tripp says he’s okay. They insist but Tripp says he’s good. Tripp asks if there’s any news on Ben and Ciara’s baby but Steve says no.

Shawn assures Ben that the baby is his nephew, so he’s not going to rest until they get him back. Shawn decides to call Rafe to find out what he knows. Ben prays there is something so he can give Ciara some good news when she wakes up since this is killing her…

Ciara asks Evan where her baby is. Evan says he knows what it’s like not to know where his son is and blames Ciara. Ciara argues that Evan killed his baby’s mother and let Ben take the fall for it. Evan complains that Ciara rode to his rescue and now they are living the dream while he rots away in a cell. Ciara argues that Ben has changed while Evan hasn’t. Evan remarks that the baby is better off where he is instead of having Ben as a father. Ciara demands to know where her baby is. Evan tells her not to worry since she’s the one lying helpless here. Ciara warns him not to be so sure about that. Ciara talks about being right that they didn’t kill Ben and brings up how many times Evan has tried to kill them and failed. Evan argues that God was on their side in the past but he has his own backup now as The Devil is on his team so he thinks they are pretty evenly matched. Ciara tries to run but Evan grabs a hold of her and starts choking her.

Marlena goes to the DiMera Mansion which excites Susan. Marlena asks if they have heard anything about Allie and the baby. Susan says they got a message from the Devil which Marlena questions. Johnny explains that they were trying to make a connection with Allie but the picture dropped out of their hands. Susan thinks it was The Devil saying this is war and now God has sent them a weapon. Susan tells Marlena that there is no one she’d rather have on her side. Susan joins hands with Johnny and Marlena, planning to drum up all the love for Allie so they can save her soul. Johnny argues that they already tried. Marlena decides they will try again since she is one more person that really loves Allie.

The Devil talks to Charlie about fighting off exorcists, loved ones, and the internal struggles of tortured souls. The Devil declares now it’s time to rest so the new baby will be his vessel for his entire lifetime as he knows no other touch but his and doesn’t have the bonds of love to restrain him. The Devil plans to take residence in the baby and when he’s a grown man, he will make Hell on Earth through him. Charlie asks what he can do to assist him. The Devil tells Charlie that his chance to be a father was taken from him, so he’s giving him the opportunity to raise another child. The Devil says when the ritual is done, Charlie will take the child and keep him as his own.

Susan tries to get through to Allie and asks God to break the Devil’s hold on her spirit. The electricity in the mansion starts to flicker while the wind picks up outside. Johnny says he can feel Allie but can’t tell where she is. Johnny wonders if Allie is gone as the lights go out, but Allie’s voice says that she is there.

Steve assures Tripp that the entire police department is looking for Allie but so far there is no trace of her. Tripp talks about Henry missing her so much. Tripp remarks that Allie doesn’t care what happens to him. Kayla says that’s not true. Tripp admits he shouldn’t talk about her like that. Steve asks Tripp how he is doing.

Johnny asks if they all heard Allie’s voice. Susan confirms that they did and tells Marlena to talk to her. Marlena tries to speak through to Allie, saying they are here and can hear her. Allie calls out to Marlena and says the Devil is too strong. Marlena says they will help fight him but they have to know where she is. Allie mentions the Devil having Ben and Ciara’s baby. Johnny asks where she is now. Allie reveals that she is at Charlie’s grave at the cemetery and tells them to come before it’s too late.

The Devil places baby Bo on a pentagram symbol and lights candles all around it. The Devil orders Charlie to not let mortals disturb the ritual and if they do appear, this is the perfect place to bury them.

Evan continues choking Ciara until Ben bursts in and grabs Evan. Evan and Ben start to fight and punch each other.

The Devil summons all forces of evil to let the transference begin.

Chanel asks Lani who else is lying. Lani asks if she said that and claims she’s just running on fumes so anything could come out of her mouth right now. Chanel apologizes for pumping her for information. Lani says it’s fine since Paulina is her mother too and she deserves to know. Lani thinks back to Paulina telling her that she knows what she’s doing in taking the fall. Chanel then asks Lani what she deserves to know. Lani brings up Beth, who swore that TR didn’t use drugs or hit her, and wonders if he threatened her to keep her quiet. Lani recalls Beth saying she had something to tell her but she seemed scared. Chanel wishes Beth told her, then Paulina wouldn’t be in this mess.

Tripp doesn’t know what to say as he didn’t keep it a secret that he loved and trusted Allie, but she couldn’t tell him about how she felt about Chanel and that she cheated on him. Kayla knows how much that hurt him when he found out. Tripp says he’s fine and dealing with it. Steve asks if he’s sure. Steve knows Tripp is tough but encourages that he doesn’t have to keep it inside and pretend it’s not bothering him. Steve advises Tripp to talk to them because he won’t feel better until he does.

Johnny declares that he has to get to the cemetery. Marlena says not by himself. Johnny argues that Allie always talks about how tough she is, but they heard how scared she is, so she needs help. Johnny shouts that she is his sister and he’s going to get her. Susan warns him that the Devil could get him again. Johnny doesn’t care but Marlena says they do. Johnny refuses to let the Devil keep Allie or hurt the baby. Johnny tells them to call Ben and the cops and tell them where to go as he rushes out of the mansion.

Evan and Ben continue fighting. Ben knocks Evan down and demands to know where his kid is. Evan fights back and grabs the scalpel as he holds it to Ben’s throat. Evan argues that God doesn’t dirty his hands with guys like them as they are both going to Hell but he’s going to make sure he sends Ben there first.

The Devil continues the ritual and declares that he takes baby Bo’s uncorrupted soul as his own.

Evan tells Ben to say hi to Jordan for him. Ciara recovers and knocks out Evan by hitting him from behind with a hospital tray. Ciara and Ben then embrace.

Charlie asks The Devil if the ritual is done. The Devil declares that he is leaving this form. Charlie asks what he’s supposed to do with Allie once he leaves her body. The Devil responds that he has no use for Allie anymore, so he can do what he wants. Johnny then arrives and declares he’s not going to lay a finger on her.

Tripp talks about growing up feeling like he didn’t belong anywhere until Steve and Kayla found him and took him in, otherwise he doesn’t know who he would be now. Tripp knows he put them through hell for awhile but here they are. Tripp thought he would have what Steve and Kayla have as he saw him and Allie raising Henry together and having their own kids but then right after he asked Allie to marry him, Johnny told him about her and Chanel. Steve reminds Tripp that it wasn’t Johnny, it was The Devil’s work. Tripp asks why it matters since it was the truth. Tripp knows what Allie must be going through but he wishes she would’ve been honest with him. Tripp talks about taking care of her after what Charlie did to her and she knew how he felt about her and Henry. Tripp wonders why Allie couldn’t just level with him or else he wouldn’t have made all those plans. Tripp thought it would be them against the world and that nobody could ever hurt Allie again.

Johnny tries to charge the Devil but he uses his powers to force him back, saying he’s not welcome in the circle and he’s not happy with all of Johnny’s attempts to interfere with his plans. Johnny says that’s too bad. The Devil warns that he’s playing with fire. Johnny says he underestimates the love between he and his sister and that he doesn’t get his family. Johnny remarks that his two grandmas could take him on which the Devil laughs at. Johnny tries to get through to Allie and urges her to fight. The Devil tells Charlie that he knows what to do with this resistance. Charlie approaches Johnny and says that he does. Johnny recognizes Charlie’s picture as the pig who raped his sister. Johnny declares that he wanted to kill him when he found out and now he’s finally got his chance.

Shawn enters Ciara’s hospital room and arrests Evan. Ciara assure they are okay. Ben says they will be when Evan tells them where to find their baby. Evan laughs at them thinking they can stop the Devil. Ben points out that he stopped Evan. Evan says they are too late as by now, the Devil is the proud owner of their baby’s soul.

Marlena calls Ben and leaves a message to call her as it’s urgent. Marlena wonders if they should go help Johnny but Susan doesn’t know what help they would be. Susan declares that this is Johnny’s fight so they should let him and the police take on The Devil.

Evan declares that The Devil is not going to kill their son, he’s going to be his son. Evan announces that once the Devil becomes one with baby Bo, he’ll be unstoppable as he will be raised from within on the guy that wrote the book on wickedness. Evan argues that they fixed it so that he couldn’t see his kid while now they will have ringside seats to their son making the whole world miserable. Ben screams at him, asking where his baby is. Shawn argues that Evan will say anything right now as he holds Ben back. Evan says all he knows is the time, but not the place. Evan reveals that the Ritual of Transference is happening right now. Shawn says he’s taking Evan to the police station but urges them not to give up hope as they are going to find baby Bo. Shawn takes Evan away as Ben hugs Ciara while she cries.

Chanel wants to see Paulina but Lani says she’s going through the booking process right now and can’t have visitors for awhile, so maybe tomorrow. Chanel cries that she can’t do a damn thing to help the people she cares about, especially when they are in big trouble. Lani guesses she’s talking about Allie as she heard she ran off with Ciara’s baby. Chanel doesn’t even know who Allie is anymore. Lani acknowledges that Chanel has been through a lot too. Chanel remarks that Johnny and Allie did a number on her but guesses that now that she knows it wasn’t them doing it all, it helps her a little. Lani says she has to get back to Eli at the hospital and invites Chanel to come with her which she accepts. Chanel calls it nice to have a sister as they exit the station together.

Tripp tells Steve and Kayla that no matter how he feels about Allie, he doesn’t want anything bad to happen to her. Steve notes that they never had a chance to straighten things out. Tripp doesn’t think things will ever get straightened out. Kayla suggests they might turn out to be friends but Tripp is unsure of that. Kayla wonders what would’ve happened with them if the Devil hadn’t played with their lives. Steve points out that Chanel was a happily married woman and made her choice which Allie knew. Kayla adds that it maybe allowed Allie to fully commit to Tripp. Tripp finds it hard to think of what might have been since he and Chanel are friends now which he never saw happening. Kayla encourages that people and feelings change. Tripp mentions that he was telling Chanel that maybe it gotten too much for Allie. Steve brings up all that Allie has been through while Kayla notes that she had a rapist’s baby. Tripp says that Allie’s life went sour when she met Charlie, while he thought he would make things right for her again. Tripp questions why this had to happen to her. Steve says he doesn’t know. Kayla thinks part of Tripp still loves Allie and wants to help her. Tripp worries that Allie is in a place now where nothing he does will make a difference.

Ben gets his phone and sees Marlena called six times so she must know something. Ben calls Marlena back and asks her what’s going on. Marlena reveals that they found Allie heading for the cemetery but she doesn’t know for sure about the baby. Ben thanks her and hangs up. Ciara tells Ben that he’s not going without her. Ben reminds her that she just had a baby. Ciara declares that she’s going to be there when they save him and Allie. Ciara tells Ben to help her find her clothes.

Charlie grabs Johnny and says he’s not getting away as he had a lot of time to work out in Hell. Charlie then rams Johnny’s head in to a statue and knocks him out. Charlie asks the Devil if he should finish him off now.

Shawn brings Evan to the police station and says the van to prison is on it’s way. Evan says he will sit there and think about Shawn, Ben, Ciara, their families, and the whole town as they look on helplessly as his nephew and the rest of the world go straight to Hell.

Tripp guesses Steve and Kayla were right that he was holding a lot of that in. Kayla is glad he opened up to them. Steve assures that they will find Allie and help her. Kayla declares that she will be saved because so many people love Allie Horton. Tripp admits he’s one of those people even after everything that happened as he’s still in love with her.

Marlena and Susan hold the photo of Johnny and Allie. Marlena prays for God to watch over them and bring them home safely tonight and deliver them from evil.

The Devil tells Charlie that once the Ritual of Transference is completed, he can get rid of Johnny and Allie. The Devil then places his hands on baby Bo but Ben and Ciara ride up on their motorcycle. Ciara tells The Devil to get the hell away from her son.

Update written by Joseph

Anna looks to sneak out of the DiMera Mansion with her bags packed but Tony catches her at the door and questions where she is going.

Gwen questions Ava wanting to bust her out. Ava points out that they did it before when they helped Kristen escape. Gwen asks what the catch is. Ava says there’s not one as she knows she let her down and she’s trying to make up for it. Ava asks if Gwen is in.

Sarah recognizes Xander in the hospital. Xander excitedly asks if it’s really her. Sarah confirms that it is and asks Maggie what’s going on. Maggie notes that her voice is normal and asks if this means she’s alright. Sarah says she’s fine and asks why they look like they are going to cry. Xander declares that they are both so happy. Xander exclaims that it worked and hugs Sarah. Xander says she is herself again. Maggie is thankful they gave her the antidote. Sarah questions what they are talking about. Xander promises to explain everything soon. Sarah asks what’s going on and why she’s in the hospital. Xander reveals that she was drugged but thankfully the antidote worked. Sarah questions that but Maggie says it’s a long story and they will get to it at some point. Xander declares that all that matters is that Sarah is with them again and herself, so they are very grateful. Xander hugs Sarah again.

Gwen goes over Ava throwing her under the bus, ruining her life, and now she’s eager to help her. Gwen asks what she is missing here. Ava says she feels guilty since Gwen is paying the price when Kristen should be behind bars. Gwen points out that Kristen didn’t help her switch out the antidote with the drug on Sarah as she did that on her own. Gwen adds that she and Xander are over now anyway. Ava says she’s sorry about that and she gets it, noting that she’s done a lot worse to hang on to the men she loves. Gwen tells Ava to get the hell out with her offer. Ava tells Gwen to be realistic that she has nowhere and no one to help her, so she is all Gwen has. Ava declares that it’s Gwen’s choice if she wants to languish in prison all alone.

Anna claims to Tony that she was taking a bunch of clothes that she never wears to the community center. Tony questions her taking them in a suitcase. Tony knows Anna is scared because her trial starts tomorrow but that doesn’t mean she will be convicted. Anna disagrees since Melinda is out for blood, Victor has the judge in his pocket, and Maggie is hellbent on making her pay for what she did to Sarah. Tony argues that Anna can’t just take off like that. Anna responds that she can and will as she has no choice and there is nothing he can do to stop her. Tony questions Anna planning to leave without even saying goodbye. Anna says it was to avoid implicating him as he can’t be caught aiding a criminal. Tony argues that she’s his wife so he wants to help her. Anna complains that she doesn’t deserve his help since he kept telling her that Sarah was no threat to their marriage and wasn’t really Renee, but she didn’t listen. Tony demands that Anna listen now as he tells her that she can’t just leave. Anna cries that it’s time for her to pay for what she did to Sarah.

Maggie and Xander leave Sarah’s room. Maggie expresses her regret for not agreeing to Sarah getting the antidote sooner. Xander encourages her to have no regrets as she was worried it was too risky, so she had every right to be worried. Xander declares that Sarah is back and that’s all that matters now. Maggie says there’s something she has to take care of. Xander questions her going now. Maggie says Sarah is okay and Kayla could be in with her for while. Maggie tells Xander to call if he needs her and promises she won’t be long as she then exits the hospital.

Gwen asks Ava what happens to her deal with Melinda if she accepts her offer. Ava says nothing as she held up her end of the bargain but Gwen escaping is not her problem. Gwen points out that the cops could find out that Ava helped her. Ava isn’t worried and doesn’t see Gwen having any better offers. Ava warns Gwen that time is running out. Ava gives Gwen her number to a burner phone if she decides to call her. Ava reminds Gwen that the clock is ticking as she then exits the interrogation room. Jack then enters the room, surprising Gwen as she thought he had washed his hands of her for good. Jack acknowledges that he led her to believe that and admits he’s sad and angry about what she’s done in the past. Jack is sure she knows that hurting Abigail hurt him, but she’s had a lot of pain in her life and he believes that’s the reason she’s caused a lot of pain so he wants to help her stop doing that. Jack adds that in spite of it all, she is his daughter and a part of him. Gwen calls that very kind. Jack argues that Gwen has it in her to do the right thing and she proved it when she told Xander where to find the antidote. Gwen feels it was the least she could do and she hopes it works and that Sarah recovers. Jack believes that Gwen can recover too from this impulsion for revenge and this need to get what she wants regardless of consequences. Gwen asks if Jack is saying that he has faith in her which he confirms. Jack assures that he cares about her, always has and always will. Jack then reveals that he asked Justin to represent her and he has agreed to take her case.

Anna tells Tony that she’s sorry but her mind is made up and she has to leave, so she’s sorry but this is the end of the road for them. Tony calls that so sad and heartbreaking. Anna agrees but says she really has to go. Tony asks if she really thought he was going to let her flee. Anna responds that he has no choice. Anna says goodbye to Tony and that she will love him forever. Anna opens the door to leave, right as Maggie arrives. Maggie asks if she’s going somewhere. Anna says she has a very important errand to run. Maggie says she needs to talk to her. Anna tells her it will have to wait. Maggie really thinks she will want to hear this now as she knows her trial starts tomorrow. Maggie then reveals that she has decided to drop the charges.

Xander returns to Sarah’s room as Kayla finishes checking her out. Kayla reports that Sarah seems to be just fine. Sarah confirms that she is and asks if anyone wants to tell her what drug she was injected with. Kayla informs Sarah that she was given a dangerous psychotropic. Xander adds that it was by Kristen DiMera which shocks Sarah. Kayla confirms it caused a lot of damage. Xander notes that she hasn’t been herself for quite some time but he’s thankful she is back to normal now. Sarah responds that she has a lot of questions but for now she will just say thank you to them for taking care of her. Xander declares that having her back is all the thanks they need. Sarah asks if they can get the ball rolling on her release now. Kayla wants to do a few more scans to make sure everything is fine, so she goes to check with radiology. Xander tells Sarah that there are no words to express what it means to be here with her now. Xander tells Sarah that he missed her so much. Sarah assures that she’s right here and it seems like it’s been a long time as she then kisses him. Xander can’t believe it and calls it amazing to have her back in his arms again. Sarah says for her it feels like just yesterday. Xander says he’s been wishing for this ever since she left him and he can’t wait to take her home. Kayla returns and announces that radiology will see her now. Xander asks how long it will be. Kayla doesn’t know but promises to let Xander know as soon as she does. Xander tells Sarah that he’ll see her in a bit. Sarah says she can’t wait. Xander exits to go text Maggie.

Anna is shocked and questions Maggie dropping the charges. Maggie explains that if Gwen hadn’t switched the vials, what Anna did would have brought Sarah back to them that day so what Anna did wasn’t terrible. Anna feels it was terrible, thoughtless, and wreckless. Anna tells Maggie that she’s truly sorry for what she put her through and she’s so grateful that Sarah will be okay. Anna thanks Maggie for telling them and dropping the charges, expressing how grateful she is. Maggie decides to get back to the hospital. Tony sends their best to Sarah as Maggie exits. Anna exclaims that she can’t believe she is free. Tony is glad she didn’t go on the run as he kisses her.

Jack informs Gwen that if she pleads guilty to the lesser charges, Justin thinks he can get her sentence knocked down to 5 years. Jack points out it’s nowhere near what she’d be facing if a jury found her guilty, so he’d say it’s a gift considering what she’s done. Gwen worries that Melinda Trask doesn’t really give out gifts. Jack points out that she’d be saving the city the expense of a trial, so if she agrees to all of this then it could be settled very quickly. Gwen takes that to mean she could be going to prison very quickly. Jack insists that this is not the end as if she makes smart and good choices, it could be a whole new beginning. Jack tells her to call Justin if she decides to accept but warns her not to wait too long. Gwen emotionally thanks Jack. Jack wipes tears from his eyes as he exits the room.

Anna and Tony have champagne and toast to her freedom. Anna repeats to Tony that she really is sorry for everything as she was thinking about herself and never of him throughout this whole ordeal. Anna knows now that Tony only went along with Sarah’s delusions because facing the truth would’ve been too hard for her and she was so mad with jealousy that she couldn’t see that. Tony knows he hurt her as well, but he felt he had to help Sarah, maybe because he wasn’t able to help Renee all those years ago and he couldn’t stop her life from ending so tragically. Tony knows Anna might not want to hear this, but he did love Renee. Anna feels they should go down to the DiMera Crypt to pay their respects to Renee because she would do anything for him. Tony thanks her.

Kayla gets Sarah back in her hospital bed. Maggie arrives and says Xander texted her and that he will be back soon. Sarah asks if they can just go home. Kayla goes to get her test results. Sarah tells Maggie how badly she wants to get out of the hospital gown and take a shower in her own bathroom. Sarah jokingly asks about why her hair is in pigtails. Sarah guesses she’s been here awhile which Maggie admits. Sarah hates the pigtails so Maggie offers to cut them. Sarah agrees and says she and Xander like her hair better short.

Xander goes to the interrogation room which surprises Gwen. Xander mentions seeing Jack outside and telling him the good news that the antidote worked. Gwen says that’s really good and she’s glad he told her. Xander thanks Gwen. Gwen repeats that she’s glad it worked out. Xander asks what’s going on with her now. Gwen informs him that Jack hired Justin to represent her and he says he can get her sentence down to 5 years if she pleads guilty to the lesser crimes. Xander asks if she’s going to do it. Gwen responds that she doesn’t know yet. Gwen tells Xander that this probably the last time they are going to see each other, so there’s something she’d like to say to him.

Maggie cuts Sarah’s hair. Sarah tells her that it’s perfect as Maggie comments that she looks like her old self again. Sarah says she feels like her old self and thanks her. Maggie worries about losing her again but Sarah assures she’s not going anywhere. Maggie tells her that she missed her so much and she loves her as they hug.

Gwen reminds Xander of when they first met and she couldn’t stand him as she found him insufferable, arrogant, annoying, and obnoxious but then she saw another side to him, a softer side. Gwen states that Xander felt deeply for her and he was so in to her, making so many sacrifices to protect her from her lies. Gwen brings up Xander disposing a body, going to jail, and giving up a million dollars all to protect a woman so desperate to have a relationship with her father that she became a hurricane of destruction. Gwen talks about spending her life deprived of love and affection and then having someone walk in to your life who genuinely cares about you. Xander understands you do anything to hold onto them. Gwen says that Xander is the only one who ever got it or understood her. Gwen declares that no one has ever been there for her the way that Xander has before and she blew it all to Hell. Gwen cries that Xander gave her his heart and she was so afraid of losing it, that she absolutely crossed the line by keeping Xander from the woman he truly loved. Gwen admits she was wrong and she will always regret it. Gwen adds that through all of her mistakes and everything it has cost her, she also received the most wonderful gift from him and that was the gift of love. Gwen says that Xander made her realize that she is worthy of love and capable of loving someone else too. Gwen removes her engagement ring and tells Xander that it belongs to him now, even though she will really miss wearing it. Gwen passes the ring across the table and wishes him happiness for he and Sarah. Xander thanks Gwen and says he should get back to the hospital. Xander guesses this is goodbye. Gwen says goodbye to Xander as he then exits the room. Gwen then breaks down crying.

Tony and Anna go to the DiMera Crypt. Tony stops her and asks if she’s sure she wants to go inside with all that has gone on there recently. Anna thinks the worst is behind them since Ben and Johnny are both free, Andre is a pile of dust, and the Devil is on the run. Anna thinks they have nothing to be afraid of, so they should go in and do what they came to do, and then go back to their champagne celebration. Anna and Tony then head in to the DiMera Crypt.

Gwen calls Ava, who is walking through the town square. Ava comments that was fast. Gwen reminds her that Ava said she didn’t have time. Ava assumes Gwen has decided to say yes then but Gwen reveals that it’s actually a no. Gwen thanks Ava as her offer helped clarify some things for her and for the first time in her life, she’s going to take responsibility for what she has done. Gwen states that it’s only 5 years in prison. Ava argues that’s not nothing. Gwen feels she has a chance to make things right and if she takes it, she might actually have a chance of having a family again. Gwen knows there’s no guarantees but repeats what Jack said that if she makes good and smart choices, then this could be a new beginning for her. Ava wishes her luck. Gwen thanks her and says she will need it.

Xander returns to Sarah’s room and is excited to see Sarah’s haircut. Sarah tells him that Maggie cut it. Xander says she looks beautiful. Sarah asks if he saw Kayla on the way in. Xander confirms that he did and she said she would let them know as soon as she can leaves. Sarah complains of being tired of waiting. Xander asks if he can get her anything. Sarah responds that the one thing she wants desperately is to see her baby, which shocks Xander and Maggie.

Tony and Anna visit the DiMera Crypt where Anna places roses at Renee DuMonde’s headstone. Anna knows it’s ironic but says despite everything that happened between them, she’s sorry that Renee was taken from the world so soon and she hopes that she’s in a better place now. Tony calls that lovely while she says now it’s his turn to say whatever he wants. Anna steps aside to give him a moment. Tony gets on his knees and talks about his relationship with Renee. Tony declares that it may be too little, too late, but he did love her deeply and he’ll never forget her. Anna comments that there must have been some good in Renee for him to have loved her. Tony thanks Anna and calls her the love of his life. Tony thinks they have finished what they came to do, so they go to leave but Anna finds a pacifier on the ground. Tony wonders where that came from. Anna guesses it must be Ciara’s baby’s and that Allie must have brought him here. Tony wonders where they are now.

Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

Leo sits in the town square, writing down a list of his enemies which includes Chad, Abigail, Brady, Chloe, and Sonny.

Sonny joins Victor in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Sonny asks if there’s any news on Ciara and the baby. Victor says not yet but with Rafe and Shawn, he might hear something soon. Sonny asks about Maggie bringing Sarah home last night and if she’s doing any better. Victor declares there will be no answers until he gets his.

Maggie has Sarah set up in a hospital bed and points out that she isn’t touching her breakfast. Sarah continues to act like a child. Xander enters the room and tries to talk to Sarah. Sarah complains about being back in boring old Salem. Xander says it’s important that she is back. Sarah hopes he doesn’t still think she is going to marry him someday. Xander states that he’s not marrying anyone. Sarah declares that one day she will marry Eric.

Abigail arrives at the hospital and greets Kayla, congratulating her on being reinstated. Kayla admits she was surprised but thrilled. Abigail is sure the rest of the staff is as well. Kayla asks what brings Abigail to the hospital. Abigail tells her that she can’t stop worrying about Sarah and she knows Maggie brought her back, so she asks if there’s any change. Kayla says she is the same as when she left but she’s waiting on scan results to know what they are up against. Abigail is grateful that Kayla is back and Seth Burns came to his senses. Kayla thanks her but notes that she doesn’t like being in debt to some unpleasant person. Abigail relates because she is in debt to Ava Vitali.

Ava has a nightmare about Gwen showing up and injecting her with the syringe used on Sarah. Ava wakes up in a panic next to Jake in bed. Jake wakes up, questioning what’s going on. Ava is relieved that she is not there. Jake assures her that no one is there and she was just having a nightmare. Ava tells him that it was about Gwen coming after her for what she did to her with a giant syringe. Jake tells Ava that it’s okay and she’s safe as he comforts her.

Leo goes to the interrogation room at the police station to visit Gwen. Gwen is thrilled to see him, calling him the only person she’d be happy to see. Leo apologizes for not coming sooner as he was busy dealing with the wedding interruption. Gwen can’t imagine how horrible it was for him and says it breaks her heart knowing how they treated him. Leo says it’s nothing he’s not used to, but they are resilient. Leo adds that it took him awhile to figure out that Abigail blew up Gwen’s marriage too but he was just as heartbroken for her as he was for himself. Leo tells Gwen that he came to cheer her up. Gwen says he already has just by being there. Leo assures he will cheer her up in a more substantial way. Leo complains about Abigail and Chad doing a number on them and blew up their lives. Leo then declares that they are going to make those bitches pay.

Victor reminds Sonny that last month he asked if he was interested in taking over Titan and he still hasn’t gotten an answer. Sonny apologizes and says there’s been a lot going on. Victor doesn’t want excuses, just an answer. Sonny calls it a big decision to make. Victor argues that it needs to be dealt with because Titan is sinking and they need a CEO. Sonny says he told him he had to talk it over with Will. Victor assumes that Will demanded Sonny come home because he needs his husband and he doesn’t know why he expected anything different. Victor remarks that Will has always been clingy but Sonny then reveals that Will is actually the one who said he should take the job, surprising Victor.

Jake and Ava lean in to kiss but are interrupted by a knock at the door. Jake gets up to answer and it’s Gabi. Jake suggests she come back later. Gabi asks to speak privately with Jake. Ava tells Gabi that it was Jake’s idea for them to share the bed as Ava goes to get dressed.

Abigail tells Kayla that it was only thanks to Ava that they finally have proof of what Gwen did to her and Sarah. Abigail says as happy as she is, it makes her a little queasy that a former mafia princess is the one who helped her. Kayla says she’s smart to be wary because no matter how many times Ava says she’s changed, she is dangerous and maybe even more so if she’s giving you something you want. Abigail agrees and says she will remain on her guard as far as Ava Vitali goes. Kayla says at least Gwen is paying for her crimes. Abigail says not all of them.

Leo tells Gwen that Abigail screwed her and Chad screwed him, so either they sit around feeling sorry for themselves or they get back at them in similar ruthless fashion. Leo knows if they put their minds together, they will make Chad and Abigail regret going after them. Gwen says she loves the idea of revenge but there’s one tiny problem. Leo tries to guess what the problem is. Gwen then points out that she is handcuffed to the table so Leo remembers that she is going to prison.

Xander tells Maggie that he talked to a lab tech on the way in and he said they were running tests on the antidote and haven’t found anything in it to harm Sarah. Maggie says that may be true but no matter how many tests, it’s part of a complete picture as a full panel of tests to guarantee the drug is safe could take months or years. Xander asks what if Sarah doesn’t have that kind of time. Maggie argues that they are talking about a serum from a mad scientist and her daughter is not a lab rat. Maggie says spending all this time with Sarah has been strange but she’s cherished raising a little girl again. Xander asks if Maggie is saying she doesn’t care if Sarah stays a child for the rest of her life. Maggie assures that she cares but she doesn’t want to tempt fate since this antidote is a complete unknown. Maggie says maybe it will help Sarah or maybe it won’t but right now, she has her daughter, healthy and happy. Maggie turns back to Sarah, who has stopped responding to her, causing Maggie to worry.

Gabi tells Jake that she knows whatever Ava wants her to believe is not true. Ava says she has an errand to run. Ava tells Jake that she will see him later, kisses him on the cheek, and thanks him for being so kind earlier as she then exits the apartment. Gabi mocks them. Jake asks what Gabi wants. Gabi complains about Jake getting right to it and not even asking how she is. Gabi then brings up reading in The Intruder that Jake was attacked by The Devil in Ben and Ciara’s apartment. Jake assures it was accurate and not the first time. Gabi questions him saying it’s true that Johnny was possessed when they fought at DiMera which Jake confirms. Jake tells Gabi that she can go. Gabi says she actually came to talk to him about DiMera as she is here to un-oust him. Gabi tells Jake that she wants him back.

Victor questions Will telling Sonny to take the job at Titan. Sonny confirms that he did. Sonny explains that he, Will, and Arianna miss Salem so when he brought up the idea of being CEO, Will didn’t think splitting their time between Arizona and Salem would be a problem. Victor thought Will loved his job there. Sonny says he does but he can do a lot of work from home and Arianna is almost out of school, so they could just bring her here for the summer. Victor asks if that means Sonny will take the job. Sonny declares that he’s in which makes Victor happy.

Maggie tries to talk to Sarah. Xander asks if Sarah can hear them. Maggie starts to panic and says they need Kayla so Xander rushes out to go get her.

Abigail reveals to Kayla that Gwen told her that she killed her grandmother but she thinks Gwen just wanted to hurt her as deeply as she could because at the police station, Gwen said Laura’s death was an accident. Abigail says that she doesn’t know what to believe which is what Gwen wants as never knowing the truth is the worst form of torture. Kayla calls that diabolical. Abigail knows she could never rely on Gwen for the truth but hates the idea of her getting away with murdering her grandmother. Abigail adds that Gwen has hurt so many other people but at least she’s behind bars where she belongs. Abigail comments that the one good thing that came out of it is that Gwen gave them the antidote for Sarah. Xander then rushes up to them and tells Kayla that she has to help Sarah now.

Leo acknowledges that Gwen going to prison could be an impediment to their plan but he’s sure she will think of a clever way out. Gwen notes that she doesn’t even have money for a lawyer. Gwen brings up all her other charges. Leo asks if Gwen really assaulted Abigail and then looked the other way as she was shipped off to a desert island. Gwen remarks that it was really nice island. Leo argues that they are still family, so he asks if she can’t get Jack to convince Abigail to drop the charges. Gwen asks if he’s joking since he just said how mean Abigail is. Gwen then admits that once she got arrested, she might have whispered something to Abigail that might be quite hard to forgive. Leo wants to know what that was. Gwen then reveals that she told Abigail that she killed her grandmother on purpose. Leo is surprised and asks if she did.

Victor tells Sonny that it’s about time he returned to his rightful place at Titan. Sonny admits he’s excited and that he’s missed Titan. Victor reminds Sonny that Chad and the DiMeras aren’t going to stop looking for ways to take them down. Sonny points out that Chad isn’t CEO anymore. Victor says that Gabi is even worse. Sonny sarcastically promises to be cut throat but assures he won’t let his personal feelings for Gabi interfere with business. Victor hopes Titan will come back stronger and better than ever. Sonny adds that there is also something else he should bring to his attention. Sonny then informs Victor that Leo Stark has sworn revenge against him.

Leo asks if Gwen really killed Laura on purpose. Before Gwen can respond, a cop brings Ava in to the room. Gwen questions what the hell Ava is doing here. Ava tells Leo that if he doesn’t mind, she came to see Gwen. Leo says he does mind and tells Ava that when a friend shares a secret with you, you don’t use it to ruin your friend’s life. Ava asks Gwen if they can talk alone. Leo refuses to go anywhere and says Ava could be wearing a wire so he tells her to get the hell out. Gwen agrees. Ava assures that she wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t important. Ava asks Gwen to let her say her piece and then she will go. Leo tells her to go, so Ava starts to leave but Gwen stops her and tells her to go on and say her piece which confuses Leo.

Jake questions Gabi saying she wants him back. Gabi clarifies that she means as her employee. Jake asks if this is a joke or if Johnny is going to pop out with a camera. Gabi assures it’s no joke. Jake tells her that the answer is no. Gabi asks him to at least hear her out. Jake gives her five minutes. Gabi explains that she was only trying to get rid of Jake at DiMera because she thought that he was trying to screw her over, but now that she knows it was the Devil, she wants him back at DiMera. Jake asks what her angle is. Gabi claims there is no angle and that Jake was great with the clients and Mr. Shin has a soft spot for him. Gabi points out that Jake clearly hasn’t found any other employment. Jake questions just going back to work for her and insists that there has to be an angle.

Xander complains about Kayla taking so long. Abigail encourages that she might just be taking more tests. Xander argues that they still haven’t got the results of the last tests yet. Abigail knows it’s frustrating but it’s the only way to find out what’s wrong. Xander worries about waiting to give Sarah the antidote and if she gets worse or dies. Abigail assures that whatever is wrong is not life threatening. Xander questions how she could know. Xander points out that Sarah was fine and then suddenly completely out of it. Abigail suggests it could be temporary or a side effect of the drug. Xander asks if it was like that for her when she was drugged. Abigail knows Xander blames her for what happened to Sarah. Xander says of course he does since if Abigail wasn’t so determined to get revenge on Gwen with that syringe, none of this would be happening. Abigail says he has no idea how sorry she is. Xander asks what good that does but then apologizes and says at least Abigail came forward with the truth that Gwen was more than happy to send Sarah to Hell with a second dose. Xander adds that at least Sarah has a fighting chance now, so as angry as he is, he owes Abigail his thanks.

Gabi insists to Jake that there is no angle and it’s just a smart business move. Jake argues that Gabi doesn’t do anything unless there’s something in it for her and that helped her get her where she is, but if she wants him to join her, she has to at least be honest. Gabi admits that EJ is making noise about wanting his job back. Gabi claims she’s not scared but needs to be prepared, so she needs what only Jake can offer. Gabi says no matter how qualified she is, she’s not a DiMera by blood which is what counts. Gabi says she will need a DiMera on her side to go against EJ and then when the board sees what a great team they are, they won’t pick EJ over them. Gabi states that this could be the power they talked about. Jake reminds her that a lot has changed. Gabi asks if he has something better going. Jake points out that they just broke up. Gabi says they are both adults so she swears to keep their arrangement platonic, similar to what he has going with Ava. Gabi asks what Jake says.

Gwen tells Leo that it’s alright and he can go, thanking him for stopping by. Leo asks if she’s sure she wants him to leave her alone with Ava. Gwen assures that it’s fine. Leo says he’s there for her if she needs anything because that’s the kind of friend he is, unlike some people. Leo then exits the room. Gwen tells Ava that the sight of her makes her sick. Gwen tells Ava to say what she has to say quickly and get the hell out.

Maggie informs Xander that Kayla just finished examining Sarah and is on her way to rush the test results. Kayla comes over and announces that she just read the test results. Kayla says she’s sorry but according to the latest scans, Sarah’s condition is deteriorating. Kayla knows how frustrating it is for both of them as they hoped the effects of the drug would diminish over time like they did with Abigail. Abigail points out that she got a smaller dose and only once. Kayla says that’s the key difference as the increased dose had more of an effect on Sarah. Xander asks if the antidote would reverse the process. Kayla says she can’t say for sure but that’s what they hope. Kayla declares at this point, it’s their only hope. Maggie argues that it hasn’t been fully vetted. Kayla understands but based on the scans and deterioration, if they don’t intervene, Sarah could end up in a permanently vegetative state. Xander says they can’t let that happen. Kayla knows Maggie doesn’t want to expose Sarah to any more drugs, so it’s her call, but if they don’t try this, she’s afraid it will get worse. Maggie then tearfully instructs Kayla to give Sarah the drug.

Victor tells Sonny that Leo Stark is just the kind of trouble they don’t need. Sonny argues that it could just be an empty threat but since last time, Leo almost torched Titan, he thought he should let him know, especially since Leo already went after Chad. Victor mentions seeing the article in The Intruder and asks when Chad started playing for Sonny’s team. Sonny clarifies that he doesn’t. Victor asks if he’s sure about that. Sonny assures him but says if he’s coming back to Titan, Victor has to promise not to believe everything he reads.

Ava tells Gwen that she came to apologize. Gwen mocks her. Ava says she’s really sorry and she has to believe her. Ava complains that she never meant to sell her out to the cops but they had her dead to rights and she needed a life preserver which was unfortunately Gwen. Gwen asks if she actually thought she could make nice and that all would be forgiven. Gwen complains that Xander and her family hate her and she’s going to prison, so Ava has completely destroyed her life. Gwen yells at Ava to get out. Ava says not quite yet as she didn’t come to beg for her forgiveness, but to help her.

Maggie and Xander return to Sarah’s room. Maggie says it won’t be long. Kayla comes in with the antidote. Maggie confirms she is ready. Kayla then injects Sarah with the antidote.

Sonny walks through the town square and comes across Leo. Sonny questions him still being in town. Leo reminds him that he told him he wasn’t going anywhere. Sonny hoped he wasn’t serious. Leo says there is still so much more to accomplish. Leo congratulates Sonny on being named CEO of Titan and guesses that means Sonny will be sticking around Salem too. Sonny confirms that he will be which Leo calls such good news because he has him right where he wants him. Leo then walks away.

Gabi asks Jake for an answer and then she will go. Jake agrees to come back to work for her. Gabi says that’s great and offers her hand. Jake fist bumps her as Gabi welcomes him back to DiMera. Gabi then exits.

Gwen questions what Ava could do to help her unless she’s a lawyer. Ava says she can do her one better and declares that she’s going to bust Gwen out.

Kayla informs Abigail that she gave Sarah the antidote, so now they wait.

Maggie calls Victor and says there’s no news yet. Victor encourages that Sarah will pull through this. Maggie hopes he’s right. Victor thinks God is on their side. Maggie agrees to keep him posted. They say I love you and hang up. Xander tells Maggie there has been no change yet. Maggie asks if something should be happening by now. Xander says he’s every bit as impatient but they need to give the drug a chance. Sarah starts blinking. Maggie calls out to her. Sarah then looks at Xander and recognizes him, thrilling Maggie and Xander.

Update written by Joseph

EJ enters the living room of the DiMera Mansion and pours a drink. Chad is there and asks if he’s having a bad day. EJ explains that it’s Allie as Johnny and Susan are trying to make contact with her, but so far there’s no clue where she is. Chad notes that finding her won’t be easy. EJ worries it could be impossible, but he got them to agree to rest. Chad knows Johnny must be going through Hell as he can’t imagine trying to save his sister from the Devil. Chad tells EJ that he’s really sorry. EJ responds that he’s the one who should apologize to Chad.

At the Brady Pub, Roman finishes a call as Kate approaches and asks for news on Allie. Roman informs her that John, Marlena, and Eric are out searching but there’s no sign of Allie or the baby. Kate wonders where she could be. Roman reveals that he has more news as it seems Sami and Lucas are missing as well.

Steve comes home where Kayla says she was starting to worry about him. Kayla asks how it went. Steve says he’s stared down every stray cat that crossed his path and listened patiently to Susan’s analysis of the movie Rosemary’s Baby, so he thought it was time to quit and start fresh in the morning. Kayla tells Steve that he has chowder and a beer waiting for him but she is going to the hospital to check on Ciara as she’s been through so much. Kayla wishes Ciara had a doctor treating her that really knew her and she felt comfortable with as she blames the hospital director Seth Burns. Seth Burns then shows up at their door.

Julie worries to Eli about TR being the one who shot him and left him for dead, now being on his way to Paulina’s apartment. Eli regrets letting Lani go over there. Julie points out that he couldn’t stop her. Julie adds that Abe is there at least. Eli feels that’s not enough because they know how dangerous TR can be. Julie argues that Lani is a police detective so she knows what she’s doing. Eli wants to get up and be there but Julie insists the best thing he can do for them is to stay here and get well. Julie remarks that if she had a gun, she’d be tempted to go shoot TR herself…

Paulina calls TR a coward and tells him to go ahead and hit her. Lani then arrives and sees Abe in a pool of blood. Lani calls TR a son of a bitch and pulls her gun. TR turns and tells Lani that he can explain. Lani then shoots TR in the chest and he collapses.

Seth Burns apologizes for dropping by so late. Steve doesn’t accept his apology. Kayla greets Seth. Steve says he has a few words he’d like to say to Seth which Kayla allows. Steve tells Seth that Kayla devoted years of her life to the hospital and saved hundreds of lives but Seth made the decision to fire her because she wouldn’t fire another outstanding doctor. Steve points out that Marlena remains on staff and questions what the hell he’s doing here anyway. Seth reveals that he is here to offer Kayla her jo back.

Lani steps over TR and drops her gun. Paulina questions what she has done. Lani asks if TR killed Abe. Abe starts to regain consciousness so Lani rushes to his side and asks if he can hear her. Lani thanks God that Abe is alive. Paulina remarks that she’s not so sure about TR.

Chad asks why EJ is apologizing to him. EJ says recent circumstances have led him to a bit of wake up call. Chad assumes he means finding out his son was possessed by the Devil for months. EJ admits he was proud of some of Johnny’s behavior which led to some serious introspection. Chad notes that has never really been EJ’s thing. EJ supposes that’s part of the problem as he always said family was his first priority but his actions haven’t shown that which Chad agrees with. EJ admits he might have unfairly held it against Chad when Johnny returned to Salem and seemed to favor Chad over him. Chad jokes how he used to sneak Johnny out in his car, let him eat pie for dinner, and never asked him to clean his room. EJ says he took his anger out on Chad and Johnny, admitting it was cruel and unnecessary. EJ adds that he proposed he and Chad team up at DiMera while always having his own agenda to take the reins himself which was selfish. EJ declares that has all gotten him with his son in trouble and Gabi running DiMera so it serves him right. Chad tells EJ that Johnny will be fine with their help and he doesn’t want Gabi running DiMera any more than EJ does. EJ hoped he would say that and suggests they join forces to get Gabi out of DiMera to take back what is theirs. EJ asks what Chad says to that.

Kate asks Roman what makes him think that Sami and Lucas are missing. Roman says nobody has been able to get a hold of them and it’s been complete radio silence, so he called Shane which Kate questions. Roman argues that Lucas and Sami’s daughter is possessed by the Devil while her brother is recovering from it, so that’s an emergency to him and he thought they might want to know. Roman adds that he wasn’t worried about Sami and Lucas until the ISA told him that it looks like they dropped off the face of the Earth.

Steve questions what Seth just said. Seth offers to explain which Steve says it’s up to Kayla. Kayla invites him in and offers him coffee. Steve gets a call from Julie, who says she needs him to go to Paulina’s apartment right now as it’s an emergency.

Lani tells Paulina that they need to get help, so Paulina calls for an ambulance and tells them that Abe is unconscious and bleeding. Paulina tells Abe to hang in there as help is on the way. Lani goes over to TR’s body. TR then wakes up and grabs Lani’s hand, telling her that he loves her. Lani questions how he could say that after everything he has done. TR says that she is his daughter and repeats that he loves her. TR adds that he forgives her as he then dies. Lani checks TR’s pulse and confirms to Paulina that he is dead.

Kate asks Roman if he believes the ISA that Sami and Lucas have vanished. Roman points out that they haven’t heard from them in weeks. Kate feels it’s not unusual as they are free spirits. Roman argues that two of Sami’s kids have been possessed by the Devil, so he wonders if Satan decided to do something to make Sami and Lucas go away. Kate says now he’s scaring her. Kate argues that Sami and Lucas have been out of town for months so they wouldn’t have known to interfere in Satan’s plans. Roman brings up the last time Sami took off for months and how wrong they were when they found out that Sami had been kidnapped and her life was in danger the whole time. Roman feels it’s not far fetched to think it might have happened again.

Chad questions EJ wanting to team up with him to take DiMera back. EJ explains now that Johnny is back in town and in his right mind, he no longer has any desire to take over the company so he can reclaim his shares and Johnny can vote with them. Chad questions EJ already talking to Belle about this. EJ adds that Belle was eager to do something to make up for what she thought was her role in his ousting. EJ says now they know Belle really wasn’t the one who framed him since she was framed by someone else as Chad takes a drink.

Seth tells Kayla that he’s sorry Steve had to leave so abruptly. Kayla questions what is going on and why Seth is doing a sudden 180 on her position. Seth informs her that Craig Wesley abruptly resigned as Chief of Staff and left Salem after his wedding debacle. Kayla realizes Seth is desperate. Seth admits that he is since Craig said he’d be ready on day one and Kayla is the only other one to fit that description. Kayla calls it flattering. Seth admits the staff revolted when they learned Craig replaced Kayla, so he’s here to eat crow and beg her to come back to the hospital as Chief of Staff. Kayla responds that she would love to have her job back, but she has one condition…

Julie tells Eli that she will hear from Steve in no time and everything will be fine. Julie wants to get Eli a nurse to get him medication but Eli assures he’ll be fine as he needs to be awake with a clear head. Eli brings up Lani leaving Paulina a message that TR was dangerous, so Abe didn’t know what he was walking in on. Julie regrets urging Abe to go to Paulina’s to tell her that he loves her. Julie hopes that TR cares about Paulina and Lani enough to not hurt them. Julie adds that TR thinks of Abe as a rival and just wants him out of the way. Julie prays for Steve to get there before anything terrible happens.

Lani asks Paulina what happened here. Paulina explains that TR said he was going to take her away on a romantic weekend and she left the room to pack, but when she came back, she thought she heard voices but TR lied to her and tried to rush her out which is when she found Abe and knew something was wrong. Paulina adds that she tried to call 911 but TR grabbed her phone, threatened her and then Lani came in. Lani questions Paulina not getting her messages. Lani reveals to Paulina that TR is the one who shot Eli as Eli is awake and remembers everything. Paulina questions why TR would shoot Eli. Lani says Eli knew too much and reveals that Beth told Eli that TR beat her and was using drugs the entire relationship. Paulina argues that Beth told them the opposite. Lani says Beth lied and guesses that TR threatened her and he was willing to do whatever he had to in order to keep them from finding out the truth. Lani mentions seeing Paulina and TR leave the hospital together, so she was worried for her and left her that message. Lani adds that she got here and saw Abe unconscious while TR’s hand was raised to hit her, so she lost it. Lani asks why she didn’t just arrest him since he wasn’t even armed. Paulina assures that it will be alright. Steve arrives, questioning what the hell happened here. Paulina then declares that she shot Ray.

Kate asks Roman if he’s saying that he thinks EJ is behind this and that he kidnapped Sami and Lucas. Roman says no but they don’t know who kidnapped Sami last time now that EJ has been exonerated. Kate argues that EJ’s conviction was only overturned because of planted evidence but one of the kidnappers identified EJ as the man who hired him. Roman says that’s true but it never seemed to sit quite right. Kate questions who else could have done it. Roman reminds Kate that EJ did point the finger at Lucas. Kate calls that a baseless accusation to undermine Lucas’s testimony. Kate asks if he really thinks Lucas could do something like that when he has zero motive and he loves Sami. Roman says he’s just saying there could be other suspects and it’s something they need to keep in mind until they find out just where the hell their kids are.

Chad questions EJ thinking someone else framed him. EJ says of course since Belle was never possessed, Johnny was, so he must have planted the evidence on his laptop so he’d stumble across it and turn him in to the police, then copied the files on to Belle’s laptop to make it look like she framed him. Chad thinks back to planning the framing with Kate to pin the crime on The Devil. Chad then points out that Johnny did make a play for DiMera so it makes sense. EJ decides it’s all in the past as Belle has drawn up papers to help make things right, so Johnny will just have to sign and all of his shares revert back to him. Chad stops EJ and points out that Johnny is worried about Allie, so he questions now being the right time to do that. EJ admits it’s not the best time but this move will help them gain access to all of DiMera’s resources to be in the best position to locate Allie and get her the help she needs. Chad then agrees if he thinks it will bring Allie home. EJ hopes this is the beginning of some healing between them and their family. EJ then exits and heads upstairs to talk to Johnny. Chad pulls his phone out and calls Kate, telling her that they need to talk about what they did to EJ.

Seth tells Kayla to name her condition. Kayla says she still won’t fire Marlena. Seth assures the board has rethought that, now that the Devil has possessed mulitple people, so Marlena’s scandal is so yesterday. Seth admits that Marlena’s popularity among the staff is only rivaled by Kayla’s and they all agree that they are the finest physicians to ever be on staff, which Seth agrees with. Kayla then accepts the offer to come back and asks when he wants her to start. Seth suggests tonight.

Lani asks Paulina why. Paulina adds that the EMTs and police are on their way. Steve asks if TR is dead. Lani confirms that he is. Paulina notes that Abe is starting to come around so Steve checks on him. Lani questions why Paulina told Steve that she shot TR. Paulina assures that she knows what she’s doing. Paulina tells Lani to go help Steve with Abe and get the first aid kit. Paulina then picks up the gun to make sure her fingerprints are on it and puts it back down.

Eli wonders why Lani, Paulina, Abe, or Steve aren’t calling. Julie decides she’ll call right now but it goes to voicemail. Eli decides he’s had enough and starts to get out of his hospital bed as Julie tries to stop him. Eli insists that he needs to get to his wife. Julie screams for help. Kayla then enters and questions what’s going on and what happened. Julie informs her that Eli tried to get out of bed. Kayla helps Eli get back in to bed as Julie gets him some water. Julie questions what Kayla is doing here. Kayla reveals that she was fired but Seth reinstated her. Kayla questions what Eli is thinking, getting out of bed when he just got out of a coma. Eli insists that Lani is in danger. Julie says that’s why she called Steve to check on her but they haven’t heard a word from him.

EMTs arrive at Paulina’s apartment. Paulina questions where the police are. An EMT says it’s a busy night but they are a few minutes behind them. The EMTs tend to Abe while Steve approaches Paulina. Paulina blames herself for leaving the opening for TR to worm his way back in to her life. Paulina asks if they can go to the hospital with Abe because she wants to be there when he wakes up. Steve responds that Lani can go with him and give her statement to the police later, but Paulina should stay until the police arrive. Paulina tells Lani to go be with Abe because he needs her. Paulina claims she’s fine and can take care of herself as she always has.

Kate goes over with Chad that EJ thinks Johnny framed him and they framed the Devil so everyone thinks it’s the Devil and she doesn’t see the problem. Chad responds that the problem is that EJ is reaching out to him and wants a fresh start to be brothers instead of adversaries and even wants to partner up to reclaim DiMera. Chad feels he has to at least meet him halfway. Kate argues that Chad can’t tell EJ that he’s the one who framed him for kidnapping Sami as it will totally implicate Lucas. Chad argues that he can do it without implicating Lucas. Kate reminds him that they’ve been through this before. Kate asks if Chad thinks EJ will just forgive and forget if he tells him because that’s not EJ’s style. Kate warns that their fresh start will go up in flames. Chad argues that he wants to make things right with his brother. Kate tells Chad to do that but to keep his mouth shut about what he knows. Roman then comes back to their table. Kate tells Chad that she hopes he takes to heart what she had to say as she hangs up. Kate that claims to Roman that she was talking to Rafe on the phone about finding Allie. Roman has no doubt that Rafe is doing everything he can. Kate remarks that he can do better. Roman decides he’s going to turn in for the night as there’s not much they can do until the morning and he wants to get up early to help search. Kate insists on helping close up then. Kate kisses Roman and tells him to get some sleep while she will be up in a few minutes. Roman heads upstairs while Kate goes back to her phone.

EJ returns to the living room and announces that Johnny signed his shares back over to him and he asked about the statements showing he paid off the kidnappers but Johnny has no memory of framing him for Sami’s kidnapping, but he doesn’t remember much about that time. EJ guesses they will never really know. Chad then tells EJ that there is something he needs to tell him.

Julie and Eli reveal to Kayla that everything Beth said about TR was a lie as he is a violent, lying, murderer. Julie hopes she didn’t upset Kayla by calling Steve. Kayla assures it was the right thing to do and what Steve was trained to do. Kayla gets a call from the ER and says she’ll be right there. Kayla reveals to Eli and Julie that there’s an ambulance en route from Paulina’s address and the victim is unconscious with a head injury. Eli asks if they said who it was. Kayla says no but she will let them know when she knows. Kayla then exits the room. Julie wonders what the hell happened over there.

Paulina asks Steve if they can cover TR with a blanket or something. Steve says they can’t disturb the crime scene. Paulina asks if he thinks Abe will be okay. Steve responds that he’s in good hands. Steve asks Paulina if she wants to tell him what happened here. Paulina says she already told him that she shot TR. The cops then arrive and question Paulina saying she shot TR. Steve confirms that he’s dead. Paulina refuses to say a word without her lawyer present. The cops then arrest Paulina.

Kate calls Lucas and leaves a message, informing him that if he doesn’t already know, his daughter Allie has been possessed by the Devil and no one knows where he and Sami are, so Roman is starting to ask questions. Kate warns that if she doesn’t hear from Lucas in 24 hours then she’s telling Roman everything.

EJ asks Chad what it is. Chad says he’s sorry for the things that he did as well that contributed to their falling out. Chad declares that he wants to be partners and brothers again. EJ looks to the portrait of Stefano and says he would be proud and pleased to see his sons coming together in the name of family and the DiMera legacy. EJ and Chad then shake hands.

Kayla gets Abe set up in a hospital bed and checks out that he is good. Abe assures that he knows who she is and questions her being back at the hospital. Kayla reveals that she was reinstated which Abe calls good news. Kayla is glad she is here to help him. Kayla notes that the police will want to talk to him, but not until she medically clears him. Kayla asks if he has any memories of what happened before or after the attack. Abe recalls Paulina asking what TR had done.

Julie is on the phone with Steve, saying it could’ve been so much worse if he wasn’t there so she’s glad she called him. Steve tells Julie that he has to go and hangs up. The cops bag the gun which Steve notes looks like a police issued service weapon. The cops confirm that it does as they zip up TR in a bodybag.

Lani returns to Eli’s room. Eli is relieved and asks if she’s alright. Lani claims she’s fine. Eli asks about Abe. Lani informs him that Abe regained consciousness in the ambulance and he will be okay. Eli asks if she’s sure she is okay as she’s covered in blood. Lani reveals that TR is dead. Eli asks what happened. Lani thinks back to shooting him. Eli asks again what happened. Lani then informs Eli that Paulina said she shot him.

Paulina is taken to the police station for her fingerprints and mugshot.

Update written by Joseph

Eli reveals to Lani that it wasn’t Frank who shot him, it was TR. Lani says that can’t be right but Eli assures that her biological father is the one who tried to kill him.

Abe goes to Paulina’s, where TR answers the door. Abe asks if Paulina is home. TR tells him it’s not a good time but Abe says he needs to see her. TR responds that Paulina is busy. Abe argues that she won’t be too busy to hear what he has to say. TR remarks that Abe thinks he owns the world and talks about him running Paulina hot and cold for months as he wanted nothing to do with her and now expects her to drop everything for him. TR questions what is so important that he has to tell Paulina right now. Abe says it’s not his damn business, but he’s here to tell the woman he loves that he wants her back.

Rafe finishes a call with Johnny at the police station. Shawn arrives and tells Rafe that they still don’t have a clue where Allie took Ciara. Rafe reveals that he actually might know where they are.

Ben arrives at the Horton Cabin and reunites with Ciara. Ciara confirms that she had the baby and that Allie delivered the baby, only it wasn’t Allie and now she took the baby and left. Ciara cries that she doesn’t know where they went but they have to find and save their baby, Bo.

Devil Allie brings Baby Bo to the DiMera Crypt. The Devil sees the pile of ashes on the floor and remarks that he expected so much more from Andre. Bo wakes up crying. The Devil assures that he’s going to take very good care of him and suggests the DiMera Crypt makes the perfect temporary nursery and all the dead DiMeras can be babysitters. The Devil declares that they are going to do great things together.

TR tells Abe that he has some nerve as he suddenly wants Paulina back. Abe assures that he does and asks to come in. TR repeats that Paulina doesn’t have time for his games. Abe argues that Paulina can decide for herself if she wants to see him. TR reveals that she already has decided as they are back together. TR announces that he’s fixing to take his woman out of town for a romantic getaway. Abe argues that there is no way Paulina would go away with the likes of him, especially with Eli in a coma. TR thinks back to hearing that Eli is awake. TR and Abe argue about being Lani’s father. TR declares that he plans on getting his family back together. Abe says this proves how little he knows about family, that he would take Paulina away at a time like this. TR warns that Abe is starting to wear on his nerves. Abe responds that he’s not leaving. TR says they are going on a weekend away from Salem, the stress, and Abe’s judgment. TR adds that it’s not like Eli is waking up any time soon…

Lani thinks Eli may be confused. Eli insists that he’s not and that he remembers everything about that night. Lani asks what he remembers. Eli talks about interviewing TR’s ex Beth at the police station and he went to the park. Eli states that TR was there, reached for his gun, and shot him in cold blood. Lani questions why TR would do that when he wants to be part of her life and their kids’ life. Lani asks why he would risk all that by shooting her husband. Eli responds it’s because he found out the truth about him. Lani asks what truth.

Rafe informs Shawn that Susan thinks Ciara gave birth at the Horton Cabin, noting that Susan has been right more times than not about this Devil stuff. Shawn decides they need to get to the island. Rafe declares that they are not going alone because if the Devil is there, they are going to need backup. Shawn tells Rafe to make the call and he’s driving.

Ben asks Ciara what happened and what Allie did. Ciara repeats that it’s not Allie as she is possessed. Ben reveals that Allie drugged him, locked him up, and tried to kill him. Ciara explains that Allie wanted her to believe Ben was dead, so she would be here alone, grieving, and isolated when the baby was born. Ben apologizes for not being there. Ciara cries that the Devil fooled her and tried to convince her that Rafe wanted them to come here, but she knew something was off. Ciara says The Devil was just getting ready to take their baby and now he has him. Ben wonders what that demon wants with their son.

Evan/Christian enters the DiMera Crypt and sees Allie. He mentions that she said he could lie low here, so he hopes that’s still cool. Evan is shocked to see the Devil eyes in Allie as The Devil says it is cool and introduces Evan to his little friend in baby Bo.

Ciara cries that she never should’ve listened to Allie. Ciara talks about seeing “Ben” lying the floor but never believing he was gone. Ben can’t believe Ciara just gave birth to their baby boy with the Devil with her. Ciara notes that she didn’t know it was the Devil until after the baby was born. Ciara talks about Allie refusing to give her son to her and then she saw the eyes, so she knew exactly who she was looking at. Ciara cries, asking what if she never gets to hold her son.

Evan is shocked, asking what is going on and who the baby is. Evan notes Allie’s glowing eyes and creepy as Hell voice, asking what this is and who he is. The Devil tells Evan to search his soul and he’ll find that he already knows the answer. The Devil mentions trying to tell Evan at the prison but he was so determined to get out. He then reveals to Evan that he is The Devil Incarnate.

Lani questions what Eli could have possibly found out to make TR want to kill him. Eli reveals that he caught TR in the park with heroin. Lani argues that can’t be since TR promised he hasn’t been usgin since going to prison years ago. Eli tells Lani that it’s all an act as TR is still using and still abusing women. Lani brings up Beth saying TR never laid a hand on her and that he’s been a perfect gentleman. Eli informs her that at the station, Beth told him that TR was using drugs and abusing her for their entire relationship. Eli reveals that’s why he went to the park, looking for TR. Lani brings up Beth coming to see her at the hospital and saying she had something to say but then TR came in, so Beth left. Eli guesses that TR got to Beth first, but that she wanted to tell her the truth. Lani argues that she should’ve known Beth was lying and that TR threatened her. Lani complains that she wanted to believe TR was a good man that pulled his life together. Eli declares that he’s sorry, but her father is the same woman-beating addict who brutalized Paulina all those years ago.

TR says goodnight to Abe and tries to shut the door on him but Abe declares that he’s not leaving until he sees Paulina. Abe gets a call from Tripp, so he asks if there’s any news on Eli. Tripp reveals that Eli is awake. Abe tells Tripp that he will share the news with Paulina and he’ll be there soon as he hangs up. Abe then informs TR that Eli is awake and talking. Abe tries to walk in but TR stops him and says he will share the news with Paulina. Abe pushes his way in, but TR pulls out a baseball bat and knocks out Abe from behind. TR remarks that he told Abe that Paulina was busy as he then begins to drag Abe’s body.

Lani cannot believe that she fell for TR’s reformed act and that she let him in to her life and their children’s lives. Lani questions how she didn’t see through his lies. Eli says he’s obviously good at fooling people, even Paulina. Lani points out that TR didn’t fool Eli. Eli says he just followed a hunch. Lani complains that it almost cost Eli his life as TR shot him with his own gun and left him to die in a park. Lani argues that her father would’ve left her a widow and taken away his grandchildren’s father just to hide his dirty little secrets. Eli responds that they will deal with him. Lani declares that she is going to but Eli doesn’t want her confronting TR alone as he’s dangerous when cornered. Lani wants TR cornered in a prison cell. Eli instructs Lani to call this in to Rafe and let the rest of the police department deal with it. Eli asks if Lani knows where TR is. Lani thinks back to seeing TR and Paulina leaving the hospital together, so she then informs Eli that TR is with her mother.

TR complains that Abe couldn’t leave well enough alone and this is what he made him do, just like Eli. Paulina calls that she’ll be right out. Paulina then comes out and is surprised it’s just TR, as she thought she heard voices. TR claims that a religious group was at the door, handing out pamphlets.

Evan questions Allie being The Devil and says he can’t believe this. The Devil brings up being back in town. Evan recalls Orpheus telling him about Marlena being possessed but all the news reports said there was an exorcism. The Devil calls it misinformation. Evan guesses the Devil jumped out of Marlena’s body into this random girl’s body. The Devil clarifies that this random girl happens to be Marlena’s pastry-baking bisexual granddaughter Allie Horton. The Devil adds that it wasn’t right away since after Eric banished him from Marlena, he went in to her grandson in Johnny, had a brief pit stop in Belle, until landing in his current host. Evan asks if he’s trying to spend time in Marlena’s whole family.

Ciara tells Ben that she thought she saw Allie struggling and might be able to push the Devil out. Ben calls that a good sign that means Allie is somewhere still in there and won’t let the Devil hurt Bo. Ciara cries that she won’t be able to resist since the Devil is too strong. Ben argues that Ciara just had a baby, so she’s in no condition to go chasing after Satan. Ciara declares that she’s a mother so it’s her job to protect her child. Ben tells Ciara to rest and that he will go find Allie and Bo as soon as they go get help. Ciara refuses to let Ben face that alone and shouts that she won’t rest until her son is in her arms. Rafe arrives and hugs Ciara, saying he’s so sorry this is happening to her.

Evan asks the Devil if this whole thing is about getting revenge on Marlena for casting him out 25 years ago. The Devil responds that if he wanted revenge on Marlena, he could have wiped out her entire family. Evan questions why possess Marlena again or her granddaughter then. The Devil brings up everything Allie has been through in her life making her the perfect host. Evan realizes she has Ben and Ciara’s baby and questions what he plans to do with him.

Rafe questions Ciara wanting to leave. Ciara wants to look for her baby. Rafe says not in her condition as she needs to get to the hospital. Ciara feels they all need to be looking for the baby. Ben asks if there are any leads. Rafe thought Allie would still be here. Ben suggests she could still be on the island. Ciara wants them searching. Rafe assures that he has people searching so Ciara thanks him. Rafe calls Ciara family and says this is personal. Ben insists on getting Ciara to the hospital to get checked out. Ben reminds Ciara that she just had a premature baby with no medical supervision so she needs to be checked out as Bo will need his mother to be strong. Ciara asks Rafe to promise he won’t give up until he finds her baby. Rafe promises to turn the island upside down until he brings her son back to her.

Lani worries that she needs to warn Paulina about TR before it’s too late.

TR sees Lani is calling Paulina, so he hides Paulina’s phone. TR tells Paulina that they need to get going on their trip. Paulina questions the rush. TR says he just can’t wait to get her all to himself. Paulina still doesn’t feel right about leaving Lani and Eli at a time like this. TR claims she’ll only be a phone call away if anything happens, but she has to take care of herself too. TR asks her to let him take care of her. Paulina then agrees to get this romantic weekend started as they kiss and hug.

The Devil complains about being tired of everybody asking what he’s going to do with the baby and tells Evan that it’s nobody’s business. The Devil says it’s all he’s heard since making sure Ciara got pregnant. Evan argues that they were supposed to be partners, so he thinks he deserves to know what the Devil has in store for Ben and Ciara’s baby. The Devil declares that it’s Evan’s lucky day and agrees to reward him for helping convince Ciara that Jake was Ben, so Evan will become the first to know what he has in store for little Bo Weston.

Lani complains that Paulina’s phone is just going to voicemail. Lani leaves a message for Paulina, informing her that TR is the one who shot Eli and warns that he is dangerous, so she needs to get away from him right now. Lani asks Paulina to call her back and not let TR know that they are on to him. Eli tells Lani it’s going to be okay. Lani worries that she needs to get to Paulina because she could be in real trouble. Eli argues that she needs to call in backup. Lani reminds him that every available officer is out looking for Ciara’s baby. Eli says there has to be someone who can help. Lani declares that she doesn’t need help as TR needs to be arrested for what he did to him, and she wants to be the one to do it. Eli says no but Lani kisses him and rushes out of the room.

TR tells Paulina that he’s been waiting a lot of years for this second chance. Abe starts to wake up behind the couch. Paulina questions what she heard. TR claims that he didn’t hear anything and they need to go. Paulina points out where the sound came from. TR says there’s nothing over there but Paulina goes to look and is shocked to find Abe unconscious in a pool of blood.

Julie goes to the hospital and runs in to Lani on her way out. Julie tells Lani that Tripp just told her the good news that Eli is awake. Lani asks where the twins are. Julie says she got her regular babysitter and they were sleeping. Lani says she’s sorry but she has to go. Julie asks if everything is alright. Lani says it’s not and she needs to find Paulina. Julie responds that Paulina is with Abe because Abe realized he still loves Paulina, so she sent him to her to get her back. Lani worries as she gets onto the elevator, leaving Julie wondering what is going on. Julie goes in to see Eli and tells him how happy she is to see him awake. Julie informs Eli that the twins can’t wait to see him again. Eli asks about Doug. Julie says he’s much better than he was a couple months ago which Eli is glad to hear. Julie expected a different mood when she got here because Lani seemed so disturbed about something but she ran off before she could ask what happened. Eli reveals that Lani just received some really disturbing news. Eli adds that he has to tell Julie something that she’s not going to like. Eli informs her that he remembers who shot him, it was Lani’s father TR Coates.

Paulina screams that Abe is bleeding and questions what TR did to him. TR claims it’s not what it looks like. Paulina says to hell with him and goes to get her phone to call 911 but sees she has a missed call from Lani. TR then grabs Paulina and says he’s sorry but he can’t let her make that call.

Ben and a nurse get Ciara set up in a hospital bed. The nurse tells her that she’ll feel better after getting some fluids in here. Ciara complains that she feels fine and would feel better if she could help with the search party. The nurse encourages her to rest and then leaves the room. Ciara hates sitting here doing nothing. Ben encourages that the best thing she can do right now is take care of herself, because when they bring Bo home, he will need a healthy mom. Ciara cries that she only got to see her baby for a few minutes. Ben encourages that he will be strong like her. Ciara cries that she doesn’t even have a picture of her baby and she’s so scared as Ben hugs her.

Evan asks the Devil what the plan is. The Devil talks about having someone to share it with. Evan mentions that he’s a good listener. The Devil explains that after possessing Marlena and various members of her family, he decided to take residence in a more permanent dwelling. Evan guesses he’s going to possess the baby. The Devil says he wouldn’t use the word possess because taking over a human soul runs the risk of them constantly fighting to get back to the loved ones. Evan asks if Allie is fighting him now. The Devil confirms that she is and she almost got through when the baby was born but with the baby, he won’t have that problem because his soul is new and shiny so there’s no time for him to form bonds with his family that made Marlena and the others fight him so hard. The Devil calls Bo his earthly do over and declares they will get a whole lifetime together. Evan asks how this is going to work and if the Devil plans to have Ben and Ciara raise him. The Devil declares that Ben and Ciara’s part in this is over and that’s where Evan comes in. The Devil says it will be a lot easier for the caretaker he’s selecting if Ben and Ciara aren’t constantly trying to get their son back. Evan asks what he wants him to do about it. The Devil then orders Evan to kill Ciara and Ben.

Ben tells Ciara that a few years ago if something like this happened, he would have said he deserved it but now he doesn’t feel fear or despair. Ben calls it a dark time but he feels hope because they have to stay positive. Ben says Ciara taught him that by loving him and believing in him, so he believes they are going to see their son again. Ciara agrees that she has to believe it too. Ciara then asks Ben to go join the search party and bring their baby Bo home. Ben promises to find their son as he kisses and hugs her.

Julie is shocked to learn that TR did this to Eli and says she knew he was bad news from the get go, but she never imagined he would try to murder her grandson. Eli worries about Julie’s heart. Julie tells Eli that she just sent Abe over to Paulina’s apartment to explain that he’s still in love with her. Julie worries that if TR is there then she just put Abe and Paulina in harm’s way. Eli adds that Lani is on her way over there right now.

TR tells Paulina that he can explain if she lets him. Paulina argues that TR hasn’t changed at all and he’s still the same lying, violent dog he always was. Paulina and TR struggle over her phone. TR raises his hand towards Paulina. She asks if he’s going to hit her and tells him to go ahead because she’s not that scared little girl he used to beat up anymore. Paulina calls him a coward and tells him to go ahead. Lani then arrives and sees Abe in a pool of blood. Lani calls TR a son of a bitch and pulls her gun. TR turns and tells Lani that he can explain. Lani then shoots TR.

Eli finally begins to wake up so Lani excitedly asks if he can hear her. Eli manages to nod his head. Lani cries about how she’s been praying for him to come back. Eli is then able to grab her hand.

Ciara tells Allie to get out of her way. Allie argues that she’s not thinking straight and questions where she would even go. Ciara says she’ll go to the docks, find the cops, and make them take her to Ben. Ciara goes to leave, but stops and announces that her water just broke. Ciara starts to panic and says she can’t do this without Ben. Allie says she can and will, encouraging her to think about the baby and how long they have waited. Devil Allie declares that Ciara’s baby will be born today and it will be the happiest day of her life.

Lani tells Eli not to try to talk as she leaves the room to go get a doctor.

TR asks Paulina if they can go somewhere more private, like his room. Paulina suggests her place instead and then he can ask his question and leave. TR agrees to whatever she says as they exit the hospital together. Lani comes from Eli’s room, trying to catch her breath and talking about Eli being back. Lani then sees Paulina and TR leaving on the elevator but is too late to inform them. Lani then sees Tripp and informs him that Eli woke up so they rush back to his room.

Johnny tells Susan that he doesn’t think trying to make a connection with Allie will work with the way things are. Susan encourages that Johnny can reach her since he knows the real Allie better than anyone. Susan tells him to use his love to reach out and let her know that. Susan says that Allie is lost right now and Johnny needs to find her.

Ciara tells Allie that she needs to help her get to the hospital so Ben can help her breathe. Allie claims that Ben is dead but Ciara refuses to believe it. Allie knows she doesn’t want to have her baby here but says she does not have a choice in the matter.

Johnny tells Susan that he would do anything for Allie but he doesn’t know what to do as he can’t make it happen. Susan encourages that he can. Susan says it won’t be easy but he has to amplify the bond they have and then maybe they can reach out to her. Johnny mentions that the Devil has his phone. Susan gets her phone to use a picture of Allie that Johnny had sent her before. Susan then tells Johnny to concentrate on the photo. Susan encourages Johnny to see what Allie sees.

Ciara insists that Allie needs to go tell the cops to call a doctor but Allie says there’s no time. Ciara says she can’t do this alone and she wants Ben as she needs him to do this with her. Allie says she is all she’s got and promises that Ciara and her baby are in good hands.

Abe goes to the Horton House and tells Julie that he’s sorry to hear about Ciara. Abe asks if there’s been any word. Julie says no but Shawn and the whole police department are searching everywhere for her. Julie says that the Devil is still after her baby and has now possessed Allie. Abe says he’s keeping them in his prayers. Abe asks if the twins were any trouble. Julie assures they never are and are napping now. Julie offers Abe some tea which he accepts. Julie asks how things are at the hospital. Abe says Lani is hanging in there but there’s been no change in Eli.

Tripp asks Eli how he’s feeling. Eli asks why he’s in the hospital. Lani informs Eli that he’s been in a coma since March. Eli tells her that he’s so sorry. Lani tells him not to worry about her as he’s the one who was shot. Lani questions him not remembering that. Eli says he doesn’t. Tripp advises them not to be alarmed by that as it’s completely normal. Eli wonders who shot him. Lani says they will get in to that later. Tripp agrees as he wants to give him a thorough exam first.

TR and Paulina go back to her place. TR tells Paulina how much the last few months have meant to him and calls it a blessing to be around his daughter and grandchildren. TR adds that Paulina was generous enough to let him back in her life even though he didn’t deserve a second chance but he’s grateful that she gave him one anyway. TR states that spending time together has made him realize that Paulina is the love of his life. TR takes her hand and says he was hoping that she might do him the honor of becoming his wife.

Abe informs Julie that things have been tense between he and TR lately as TR found out that he and Paulina recently kissed. Abe explains that Paulina kissed him but he pushed her away and then TR told him off for hurting Paulina’s feelings. Julie doesn’t understand why Paulina has let TR back in to her life. Abe thinks things have gone beyond that now and there’s something romantic between them but it seems like a really bad idea, which Julie agrees with. Julie declares that it’s about time Abe does something about this because he still loves Paulina. Julie tells Abe to get over himself and win Paulina back.

Paulina questions TR wanting to marry her and asks if he’s lost his damn mind. TR knows it may seem sudden. Paulina argues that she’s spent 3 decades not knowing or caring where he is and then he happens to bump in to her and now he wants to tie the knot. Paulina says too fast would be a massive understatement. TR offers to take her away for a romantic weekend to sweep her off her feet. Paulina admits that sounds a lot less radical but she remains uncertain. TR insists that it’s one weekend and there’s no harm in that…

Tripp checks Eli out and says everything seems good. Lani can’t wait to tell everyone but she doesn’t want to leave Eli’s side. Tripp offers to make the calls for Lani. Tripp tells Eli to take it easy and he’ll be back soon as he then exits the room. Lani checks on Eli, who says he’s okay. Eli asks about her and the kids. Lani says they are fine. Lani admits she was a mess but she had so much help from Paulina, Julie, and Abe who were all wonderful helping with the kids. Lani adds that even TR pitched in. Eli questions if she let TR near their kids. Lani points out that Eli has missed a lot.

Allie prepares Ciara to give birth. Ciara pulls out a photo of Ben and says she wants him there in some way.

Johnny looks at the photo of he and Allie on Susan’s phone but says he can’t as his head is killing him. Ben pleads with Johnny that this might be their only chance, reminding him that Ciara is alone with the Devil, who is after their baby. Ben asks what if the baby comes early. Susan holds Johnny’s hand and says she’ll do it with him. Susan encourages Johnny to close his eyes and think of Allie and get Allie to think about her son. Susan wants Johnny to see the first time Allie held her baby. Johnny tries to speak to Allie and urges her to think about Henry as he needs her and she has to get back to him. Johnny then tells them that he can see Ciara through Allie’s eyes.

Eli asks Lani what else he missed and if the kids are fine. Lani assures that they and that Abe is on his way to Julie’s to pick them up. Eli doesn’t want TR near their kids. Lani assures that they were never left alone with TR, but he did help her with all of this. Lani mentions that she and Paulina both had reservations about TR, but even Paulina is beginning to think that he’s a changed man. Eli guesses he did miss a lot as the last thing he remembers is having the ISA check TR out. Eli says there was something else and recalls speaking to someone that knew TR. Lani identifies that was TR’s ex girlfriend Beth, who Billie tracked down. Eli remembers Beth coming to see him at the police station and that she was an actress. Lani explains that Beth wanted Eli to know that TR was sober the entire time they were together and that he never laid a hand on her, but Eli does not remember that and asks if she’s sure that’s what Beth said.

Paulina tells TR that it doesn’t feel right to leave Lani while Eli is still in the hospital. TR comments that it looks like Eli will be there for awhile and he doesn’t think Eli would want her to put her life on hold. TR adds that it’s just a couple days and they will come right back if anything happens. TR points out that Paulina has been running herself ragged and she can come back refreshed, ready to help Lani again. Paulina admits she’s been stretched thin lately and agrees to go away with TR. TR tells her that she has no idea how happy she has made him as he gets up and hugs her.

Ben asks Johnny how Ciara is. Johnny continues to use his connection to see Ciara through Allie, he notes that Ciara is on the floor and looks like she’s in pain. Ben asks if she’s hurt. Johnny says no but he thinks she’s in labor and the baby is on her way. Ben argues that the baby isn’t due for a couple more weeks and asks if Allie is with her. Johnny realizes that he’s seeing Ciara through Allie’s eyes. Susan encourages Johnny to keep talking to Allie.

Allie encourages Ciara to keep breathing. Allie starts to hear Johnny’s voice, confusing her. Ciara asks what’s wrong. The Devil starts telling Johnny to get out as Ciara questions what she’s saying.

Johnny falls down and tells Ben and Susan that The Devil figured out what was happening and blocked him out. Ben asks if he saw where they were. Johnny says he couldn’t see much but it looked like a cabin. Ben guesses it’s his cabin where he took Ciara and decides he needs to get there now, so he rushes out of the apartment.

Allie urges Ciara to keep pushing and says she can see the baby’s head. Ciara then successfully gives birth to her baby boy. Allie picks up the baby and says he’s perfect. Ciara asks her to give her baby to her. Ciara then tells Allie to let her have her baby.

Abe tells Julie that even if he does love Paulina, the problem is he can’t trust her because she’s lied to him too many times. Julie admits that is a valid concern as trust is very important, but questions what else Paulina has to lie about. Julie believes Abe knows everything now. Julie states that she loathes TR but he does have certain charms, is a smooth talker, and is sort of a Hollywood player. Julie suggests perhaps Abe doesn’t care to compete with the new kid in town. Abe jokes that she is evil. Julie talks about how it’s okay to throw in the towel because love is a young man’s game.

Paulina wants to call Lani and let her know. TR decides he will call her while Paulina goes to pack. Paulina hopes he’s not totally devastated that she turned down his proposal. TR responds that he’ll get by somehow. After Paulina leaves the room to go pack, TR remarks that he will get that money somehow. Paulina’s phone then rings, so TR answers it assuming it’s Lani but it’s Tripp, who asks if Paulina is there. TR asks Tripp if everything is okay. Tripp says he has good news as Eli just woke up, startling TR.

Lani asks Eli what he means by asking if she’s sure since Beth told her, herself. Eli questions getting shot on the day that he talked to her and asks how it happened. Lani says they don’t have to do this right now but Eli wants to know what happened. Lani responds that what they know is that Eli left Beth at the police station, and she said that he said he’d be right back but didn’t say where he was going or why, and somehow he ended up at the park where a drug dealer ended up shooting him. Eli asks why but Lani says they don’t know. Lani informs him that she and Shawn were first on the scene and the drug dealer Frank had already overdosed and there was a needle by his body and Eli’s gun in his hand. Lani cries that she really thought she was going to lose Eli as she hugs him.

Susan sits Johnny back up as he agrees to try again because he has to get to Allie. Susan encourages that he can do this. Johnny sees Ciara’s baby and that Allie is holding him.

Johnny’s voice urges Allie to fight and not let the Devil hurt Ciara or the baby. Allie screams for him to get out. Ciara questions what’s going on. Allie tells her that everything will be fine soon. Johnny continues to see through Allie’s eyes until she then uses the Devil powers to fight Johnny off again.

Johnny doesn’t know what the Devil did but he doesn’t think they will get back in. Susan says he tried and that’s all that counts. Johnny responds that he did better than try as Allie heard him and told him where they were by looking at a ferry ticket to Smith Island. Johnny realizes they aren’t at Ben’s cabin, they are at the Horton Cabin, so Ben went to the wrong cabin.

Ciara gets up and tells Allie to let her see her baby. Allie welcomes the baby to the world. Ciara repeats to Allie to give her baby to her. Allie turns to her and says no because this is her baby.

Julie brings up when Abe was shot and they were waiting for him outside of his surgery and says Paulina would have done anything on Earth to keep him safe because she loves him fiercely. Julie asks if Abe really wants to let a woman like that slip away. Abe admits he doesn’t want to lose Paulina. Julie encourages him to tell her that he wants her back then. Abe decides that he will, so Julie tells him to go. Abe reminds her that he’s here to pick up the kids. Julie assures they are fine, so he can go to Paulina now. Abe acknowledges that she told him it’s time to get over himself. Julie ask what are friends for. Abe thanks her for the tea as he then exits.

TR is surprised to hear that Eli is awake. Tripp adds that they have every reason to believe he’ll make a full recovery. TR asks if he said anything about what happened to him. Tripp says no as Eli doesn’t seem to remember what happened before the shooting but that is normal with trauma like his. Tripp adds that it’s possible his memory will come back, so they will just have to wait and see. TR thanks Tripp and says he’ll tell Paulina right away. TR then hangs up in frustration. Paulina comes back in and asks if he spoke to Lani. TR lies and claims that he just spoke with Lani, who said it’s a great idea for them to get away for a few days and that she wants Paulina to have the time of her life.

Lani informs Eli that Shawn tried to revive Frank the drug dealer but it was too late, so they had no way of knowing what exactly went down. Eli asks for a picture of Frank, so Lani pulls one up on her phone. Eli says he doesn’t look familiar. Lani questions Eli not remembering why he went to the park. Eli confirms that he doesn’t. Eli then starts to remember fighting over the gun. Lani asks him what it is. Eli tells her that it’s starting to come back to him.

Susan tries to call Ben but it went straight to voicemail. Johnny doesn’t think there is any service at the island. Susan leaves a message for Ben that he went to the wrong cabin and it’s the Horton Cabin on Smith Island. Susan hopes he gets the message.

Ciara questions Allie saying it’s her baby and asks if this is a sick joke as she asks for her baby. Allie responds that she’s sorry but she has other plans for him. Ciara asks what she’s talking about and demands she give her son to her. The Devil then takes over and reveals to Ciara that he’s not Allie. Ciara begins to panic and says it can’t be as she thought he was in Johnny. The Devil talks about having to learn to pivot and this was spur of the moment but inspired. Ciara pleads with the Devil not to do this to an innocent little baby. The Devil declares that no one can stop him now. Allie’s voice from within tries to stop the Devil and says she won’t let him do this.

Lani asks what Eli remembers. Eli recalls struggling with the gun. Lani asks if it was with Frank. Eli says maybe and then remembers further. Eli then comes to a realization as he remembers the moment he was shot. Eli reveals to Lani that it wasn’t Frank who shot him, it was TR.

TR calls on Paulina to get going. Paulina tells him to hold his horses as she hasn’t even finished packing yet. TR argues that it’s just a weekend. TR remarks to himself that she won’t need a lot of clothes where she’s going. Abe then shows up at the door and comes face to face with TR.

Johnny calls Rafe and tells him that they figured out that Allie took Ciara to the Horton Cabin and Ciara has had her baby, so he has to get there right away.

Ben arrives at the Horton Cabin and reunites with Ciara. Ben tells her that she’s okay and mentions almost going to the wrong place. Ben looks around and asks where Allie is. Ciara responds that she’s gone and it wasn’t Allie, it was the Devil. Ciara cries that the Devil took their baby as Ben hugs her.

Update written by Joseph

Paulina visits Eli with Lani in the hospital. Paulina encourages that Eli knows how much Lani loves him. Lani credits Paulina for always being there and allowing her to spend so much time at Eli’s side. Paulina says it’s her honor to support them and she will continue to do so as long as they need. TR then arrives with flowers and asks how his two favorite girls are. Lani thanks TR and tells him there is no change in Eli, but she keeps talking to him and telling him that they can’t wait for him to come back. Lani says it may be wishful thinking but she really feels like he’s listening this time. Paulina encourages that Eli hears every word Lani says to him and he’s working hard to get back to her and their children.

Tripp enters a hospital room to check on Beth and asks what brings her in today. Beth turns to him, revealing she has a black eye.

Chanel arrives at the hospital and sees Johnny. Chanel asks how he’s feeling. Johnny responds that he’s much better as he’s rehydrated and good to go. Chanel asks if he’s sure since he’s been through a lot. Johnny jokes that it wasn’t that bad but then goes over being possessed by the Devil, held prisoner in a crypt and almost strangled to death by his dead uncle. Johnny says everyone has their problems but admits it did a number on him, though he’s fine now. Chanel assumes he’s heading home to rest but Johnny says no way as he needs to find Allie.

Devil Allie walks around the cabin as Ciara sleeps on the couch. The Devil says now that he’s convinced Ciara that her husband is dead and she’s in mortal danger from the maniac who killed him, she can stay here with him where he’ll keep her safe until she gives birth and then that baby will finally be his. The Devil declares that’s the plan and nothing is going to stop him.

Susan rushes in to Ben’s apartment, saying she got his message and came as soon as she could. Ben talks about no one seeing or hearing from Ciara or Allie since yesterday. Ben needs Susan to find Ciara right now as she could give birth any time and the Devil is after their baby. Susan encourages Ben that love will always win over evil. Ben hopes she’s right and that they can use her power to help him connect with Ciara like before. Susan tells Ben to get her something of Ciara’s. Ben gives Susan the motorcycle helmet that he gave to Ciara as an anniversary gift. Susan raises the helmet and calls out to Ciara to try and feel her presence but doesn’t get anything. Susan then has Ben hold the helmet and holds Ben’s hand to try again but gets nothing. Susan then asks Ben to try to talk to Ciara.

Ciara hears Ben’s voice, saying he’s alive and trying to find her but he needs her help.

Susan encourages Ben to keep going. Ben says he needs Ciara to tell him where she is.

Ciara calls out to Ben but Allie wakes her up, saying she was having a nightmare. Ciara says it wasn’t a nightmare but she heard Ben and he’s alive.

Ben tells Susan that he was so close and swears he almost felt her but something happened. Susan guesses the Devil was messing up the signal. Ben asks what to do now.

TR asks what is the latest on Eli and the doctors and if they think he has a chance to wake up. Paulina insists that Eli is coming out of this while TR looks worried. Abe enters the room and comments that it’s a full house. Abe thought there wasn’t supposed to be too many people in the room as he turns to TR. Paulina decides she has to use the restroom anyway so she hugs Lani and then exits the room. Abe asks if it was something he said. TR responds that it was more like something he did.

Chanel tells Johnny that it might not be that easy for him to find Allie since she took Ciara. Johnny is shocked as Chanel explains that no one knows where she took her. Johnny remembers the Devil wants Ciara’s baby. Chanel says every cop in town has been looking for them. Chanel worries about what if the cops shoot first and ask questions later. Chanel cries that she’s so scared. Johnny hugs Chanel as Paulina comes off of the elevator and questions what the hell is going on here.

Tripp asks Beth how she got injured with the black eye and cut lip. Beth claims that she tripped and landed on her face. Tripp asks if he’s sure, adding that anything she tells him will remain strictly confidential as the doctors are given treatment guidelines to help them accurately identify what is going on with patients to get them what they need. Tripp wants to make sure he’s doing all he can to help her, so he has to ask if someone did this to her. Tripp adds that there is another option and offers to call in a female police officer but Beth says no cops. Beth says she is in a lot of pain and just needs a prescription for painkillers. Tripp feels she should be admitted in to the hospital but Beth says she can’t be here as she has to work. Tripp suggests ice first and then heat in a couple days and to switch to Ibuprofen as soon as she can. Tripp asks if she wants him to call a friend to pick her up but Beth says she’s good and quickly exits the room.

Abe asks what exactly TR thinks he did. TR informs him that Paulina told him that she made it clear that she still has feelings for Abe but he rejected her. Abe asks what the hell business it is of his. TR says it is because he cares about Paulina very much and doesn’t want to see her get hurt. Abe laughs and says that’s rich coming from him. Lani interrupts, yelling at them to stop as her husband is fighting for his life and they are there arguing. Lani asks what is wrong with them.

Paulina yells for Johnny to keep his filthy hands off of her daughter. Johnny knows how she feels about him and asks Chanel to explain that he’s not the horrible person she thinks he is. Johnny says he’s sorry but he really has to go so he rushes out of the hospital. Paulina calls him a coward for running off. Chanel tells her that Johnny really does have something important to do, explaining that he just got released from the hospital. Chanel adds that Johnny was just comforting her because she was upset. Paulina hopes she’s not getting sucked back in to being with Johnny. Chanel says she doesn’t understand. Paulina complains about Johnny and Allie treating her like dirt and shattering her heart. Chanel clarifies that Johnny and Allie never meant to hurt her. Paulina questions her doing a 180 and defending them. Chanel reveals that she’s not making excuses but telling her that they weren’t responsible for that behavior because it wasn’t them, they were possessed by The Devil.

Allie tells Ciara that she couldn’t have heard Ben and was just dreaming. Ciara says it was more than that and she’s had the feeling before of Ben trying to reach out to her before and she just heard his voice saying he needs her. Allie calls that impossible and knows it’s hard to accept but Ben is dead. Ciara doesn’t believe it as every part of her is telling her it’s not true. Ciara declares that she has to find Ben but Allie says she has to take care of herself and her baby which means they have to hide out her until they find Evan because he will kill her and her unborn child if he finds her. Ciara doesn’t understand why there are no cops guarding the cabin outside if Rafe said he would send some.

Susan worries to Ben that The Devil has isolated Ciara as he wants her and the baby all to himself. Ben points out that Ciara doesn’t know that Allie is possessed so she trusts her which is why The Devil is able to manipulate Ciara in to doing whatever the hell he wants. Susan says not if Ciara is strong and determined. Ben agrees that Ciara just has to hang on until he can get to her. Susan declares that if the Devil gets in their way, they will go around him. Susan promises they will find Ciara because love will find a way.

Abe and TR apologize to Lani for arguing. Lani says whatever is going on between them, she can’t have it going on in this room. Abe says he understands. TR gets a call and tells Lani to hang in there and that he’s praying for Eli as he exits the room to answer the call. Abe questions TR just leaving because his work is more important than being here with her.

Susan tells Ben that they need to figure out how to get he and Ciara reconnected. Ben brings up how they communicated psychically before and when Ciara was held prisoner, they had the same dream at the same time of being Romeo and Juliet. Susan tells him to go get Romeo & Juliet.

Allie claims to Ciara that two cops did come by while she was asleep. Ciara questions her not waking her up. Allie says there was no reason to as they had no new information and just that they have an APB out on Evan. Ciara questions the cops just leaving them while they are in serious danger. Allie claims that they are down on the docks. Ciara wants to talk to the cops, insisting that Ben is still alive and she needs to find him. Allie claims to her that the cops made it clear that leaving is not an option so for her safety, they need to stay here. Allie suggests they do breathing exercises for her pregnancy. Ciara mentions that she was supposed to do that with Ben as he was going to be her birthing coach. Ciara cries that she and her baby need Ben. Allie encourages that she has her so she’s not alone. Allie offers to be Ciara’s birthing coach and says she’ll be honored to help bring her baby in to the world.

Paulina questions Chanel about the exorcism getting the Devil out of Marlena but not getting rid of him once and for all. Chanel says apparently not. Paulina feels that’s all the more reason for her not to go near the twins so that Satan doesn’t jump in to her next. Chanel says there are more important things to worry about right now because Allie took Ciara and no one knows where they went, but they know the Devil wants Ciara’s baby. Chanel feels so bad for Johnny and he went looking for them. Chanel wonders if she should go help but Paulina tells them to stay away and not go anywhere near that mess. Paulina suggests they go get coffee, so Chanel can tell her the rest of this insane story.

TR is on the phone at the hospital, saying he knows he said he would have the money by now but he will get it. TR gives his word that it will be next week at the latest but they hang up on him. TR then spots Beth on her way out of the hospital and confronts her, questioning what the hell she’s doing back here.

Abe apologizes to Lani as he knows he should keep his opinions to himself since TR is her biological father and has every right to be here. Lani understands Abe’s concerns about TR since for years, he abused Paulina and drugs. Lani notes that since Eli’s shooting, TR has been great and been there every day plus helping with the kids. Lani assures she would never leave the kids alone with him but they are his grandchildren. Abe says they are his too and he can’t not worry. Lani knows TR’s history and promises to keep her guard up, but she honestly doesn’t believe he’s a threat anymore as he’s trying so hard to prove that he’s become a different man. Abe doesn’t think that’s possible as he knows from Kate and Nicole, who had experience with abusers, that men like that rarely change. Lani responds that her experience as a cop tells her the same thing but rarely is not never, so TR could be the exception. Abe asks what if he’s not.

TR pulls Beth aside and warns her about shooting her mouth off to Lani again. Beth clarifies that she wasn’t here to see Lani, but to see a doctor. TR argues that she can’t be seen like this. Beth says she didn’t want to be but she was waiting for her ears to stop ringing, her eye to stop throbbing, and for it to stop hurting to breathe. Beth says she only came for painkillers and is now on her way back to the hotel. TR declares that’s not good enough as she needs to leave town and go back to LA. TR wants her on the next flight out. Beth asks about the movie and says she’ll be fine by then. TR disagrees and argues that she can’t do a movie looking like that. Beth argues that TR did this to her. TR remarks that she’s lucky that’s all he did…

Ciara appreciates Allie’s offer but says she and Ben had been practicing for months so he was supposed to be her birthing coach and she doesn’t think she can have this baby without him. Ciara then hears Ben’s voice reading Romeo & Juliet. Ciara asks if Allie just heard something like she did but Allie says no. Ciara says she heard it again as Ben continues reading Romeo & Juliet. Ciara tells Allie that she is definitely hearing Ben’s voice reciting Romeo & Juliet. Allie says there is no way. Ciara imagines Ben appearing in the cabin, reciting the lines, and says it’s really him and he’s here.

Ben points to Susan that the next line is Juliet’s. Ben worries that it’s not working. Ben then hears Ciara’s voice reciting the next line. Ben says he can hear Ciara and then imagines her appearing in the room behind him. Ben reaches out and says where ever she is, she must be seeing and hearing him too. Ben insists that he’s alive and is going to find her so he asks her not to give up on him.

Ciara reaches out and says she believes in Ben.

Ben asks Ciara to tell him where she is. He imagines Ciara saying she’s right there and that she can reach out and touch him but the vision disappears.

Devil Allie uses his powers to erase Ciara’s vision of Ben, leaving her disappointed.

Abe tells Lani that TR is always on his best behavior around her and Paulina, but he doesn’t buy that he’s truly reformed. Lani brings up TR’s recent girlfriend Beth vouching for him and saying that he never used drugs or laid a hand on her for the entire time they were together. Lani then brings up Beth coming to visit her the other day and she said she had something to tell her. Lani says she forgot about it until now. Abe wonders if it has something to do with TR. Lani says she doesn’t know as they got interrupted and then she left so she never found out what it was. Abe suggests maybe she should..

Beth asks what TR is going to do to her that he hasn’t already done, shoot her like he shot Eli? TR snipes at her to shut up and reminds her that he told her he had nothing to do with Eli’s shooting. Beth points out that TR also told everyone that he wasn’t doing drugs and wasn’t beating women. TR argues that she deserved what he did to her because she broke their agreement. Beth asks if she’s supposed to go back to LA while TR proposes to Paulina. TR says then Paulina says yes as everything is working out exactly as planned with Paulina. Beth asks what if Paulina starts asking questions and if he’s going to kill her. Beth points out that TR almost killed her just for being in the same room as his daughter. TR warns her to keep her voice down. Beth repeats that Paulina is no fool and is not going to let him get away with walking her blind. TR tells her not to worry about Paulina but to worry about what’s going to happen to her if she sticks around Salem and anybody sees her like this. TR warns Beth that if she shows her face around town again or talks to anybody about what he did then he will kill her. Beth says she’s got it and she’s leaving as she then exits the hospital as they stare back at each other. Paulina then approaches TR and asks if that was his ex getting on the elevator. TR confirms that was Beth. Paulina asks what she was doing here. TR claims that she was just looking for him because she decided to drop out of the movie and go back to California.

Beth walks through the town square, booking the next flight out to LA. Beth hangs up and then gets a call from Lani. Lani brings up Beth saying she had something to tell her and she’d like to know what it is.

Ciara tells Allie that it’s all going to be okay because Ben is not here now but he’s alive. Allie tells him that it’s not true and that she was just hallucinating. Ciara insists that it was their psychic connection at work. Allie encourages her to sleep but Ciara says no way as she’s not going to wait for Ben to find her, she’s going to find him.

Ben tells Susan that the connection was broken. Susan says what’s important is that he reached her and reconnected to her. Ben declares that now he just has to go find her. Johnny shows up at the door and asks if there’s any news. Susan hugs Johnny, who says he just got released from the hospital. Susan is happy that Johnny is alive and well and devil-free. Johnny credits Susan for saving him. Susan jokes that she’ll have Roger write a song about how they beat the Devil. Johnny points out that they haven’t won yet because Allie is still out there. Ben adds that she is with his wife and child.

Ciara says for her and Allie to go but Allie says she’s not going anywhere and not letting her go either. Ciara argues that Allie has no say about it as she is not her prisoner, so she is going to go find Ben and there’s nothing she can do to stop her.

Lani reminds Beth that she said it was something she deserved to know. Beth thinks back to TR threatening to kill her. Beth then tells Lani that it wasn’t important and she’s sorry for making her feel like it was. Beth says she has a plane to catch back to LA but she wishes her and Eli the best. Beth prays that Eli wakes up. Lani thanks her and they hang up. Lani tells Abe that was strange as she got the feeling that Beth was hiding something, but she’s leaving town now so she guesses they’ll never know.

Paulina questions TR about why Beth just up and quit. TR claims she didn’t say and guesses she got cold feet. Paulina asks if he needs a new Celeste for the movie. TR suggests Paulina put in a good word for him with Chanel to get her to consider to sign on again since he always thought she was the best person for the role. Paulina mentions just seeing Chanel and that she was on her way to the Bakery, so he could track her down right now if he wants. TR decides he will talk to her but not right now as there is a higher priority he has to take care of first. Paulina questions what is higher priority than his movie. TR responds that she is and he has an important question for her…

Abe tells Lani that he better get to Julie’s as he promised to take the twins for the evening. Lani thanks him and says she really could not do this without him. Abe says it’s his pleasure as they hug and that he loves her as he exits the room. Lani sits with Eli and says everyone loves him too and they are all pulling for him. Lani says they are not giving up on him and Paulina is right that Eli is going to come out of this. Lani adds that she misses him so much and so do their kids, Julie, Doug, Abe, and Valerie. Lani declares they will all be here waiting whenever he decides to finally come back to them. Eli then finally begins to wake up.

Ben fills Johnny in on Devil Allie making Ciara think that he was dead but now Ciara knows he’s alive as Susan helped him use their psychic connection to reach out to her, but they still don’t know where she is because the connection broke. Susan exclaims that she just came up with a brilliant idea, pointing out that as twins, Johnny also has a psychic connection with Allie.

Ciara tells Allie to get out of her way. Allie argues that she’s not thinking straight and questions where she would even go. Ciara says she’ll go to the docks, find the cops, and make them take her to Ben. Ciara goes to leave, but stops and announces that her water just broke.

Update written by Joseph

Leo goes to see Craig in his room and tells him that all his life, he’s always wanted something but now he only wants him.

Nancy walks through the town square, on the phone with Bonnie about her visit with Craig and how they realized after everything, they are still friends. Nancy starts to complain about Clyde not taking her on their date, but then she runs in to Clyde.

In the interrogation room, Jack questions what Jennifer is talking about. Abigail guesses that Gwen didn’t tell Jack what she told him before Rafe brought her in to the station. Abigail asks if Gwen wants to tell him or if she should. Abigail complains that Gwen never wants to admit to doing anything until she’s been caught. Jack questions what she’s talking about. Abigail declares that this is about Grandma Laura’s death not being an accident as Gwen told her that she killed Laura on purpose. Jack asks Gwen if it’s true. Gwen claims of course it’s not and that Abigail must have misheard what she said. Abigail assures that she heard it very clearly and repeats the exact words that Gwen said to her. Gwen asks if last night wasn’t enough fun for Abigail and if she woke up wanting to hurt her more. Jennifer argues that Gwen is not the victim here, but her mother was one of Gwen’s victims. Jack questions why Abigail didn’t say anything last night. Abigail felt Jack had been through enough. Jennifer recalls seeing Gwen whisper something to Abigail before Rafe took her away. Gwen remarks that she has a problem with someone else having the last word. Jack asks why Abigail chose to tell him now. Jennifer argues that she told Abigail that she had to because Jack has to know that they are now talking about murder. Jack turns to Gwen and asks if she killed Laura.

Nancy yells at Clyde as she hangs up with Bonnie and starts to walk away but Clyde tells her to wait. Nancy argues that she waited all day yesterday for him to call like he said he would but he never did. Clyde tells her that there’s a reason for that and informs her that his son Ben went missing. Nancy asks if he’s okay and if they found him. Clyde reveals that he was chained up in the DiMera Crypt. Nancy asks if Stefano came back from the dead again. Clyde tells her it was the Devil and he knows it sounds crazy but they found Ben and have no idea where his wife is because the Devil has kidnapped her. Nancy mocks him and says if he doesn’t want to date her, he doesn’t have to use old tales from the crypt. Clyde swears on his grandson that he’s telling the truth and shows Nancy his phone as proof.

Sonny shows Chad the article that Leo put in the Intruder about Chad as a drag queen. Chad starts saying he’s going to kill Leo. Sonny tries to calm him down and jokes with Chad. Chad reminds Sonny that all of his humiliation is Sonny’s fault. Sonny argues that a picture of Chad in drag is no big deal. Chad explains that it’s the story and reads how Leo wrote that he and Chad ended up in bed together, making it sound like Chad was obsessed with him.

Leo tells Craig that he wants him back, he wants him to forgive him, and he wants him to marry him. Craig responds that he’s sorry but Leo already has a husband. Leo insists that it was only to help Darius get a green card. Craig asks why he would care now. Leo assures him that he doesn’t love any other man but Craig.

Nancy asks Clyde expecting her to believe him with a picture of Chad in drag. Clyde realizes he showed the wrong story and then shows her the article about Ben being rescued and his pregnant wife now missing. Nancy then hugs Clyde and says he must be so worried. Clyde apologizes about the dinner. Nancy understands now that he had so much on his mind. Clyde hoped he could make it up to her if she had the time to go to lunch. Nancy asks what about his son and daughter in law. Clyde says the police are looking for her and Ben would rather be alone right now. Clyde mentions that he would like nice company like her. Nancy agrees to lunch, so Clyde invites her to the Brady Pub and says she can tell him all about her ex-husband’s wedding.

Craig tells Leo that he heard him say “I love you” a million times, but since he was lying to him from the second they met, he doesn’t know why he should believe him now. Leo talks about rubbing Craig’s feet after a long shift at the hospital, trading his drinks, and playing with his hair as little ways he shows that he loves him. Leo declares that for the first time in his life, he admitted he did something wrong and he apologized. Leo is sorry that he lied to him, seduced him, and tried to marry him for his money. Leo adds that the one thing he is not sorry for is that he fell in love with him because their time together has been the best days of his life.

Gwen claims she’s telling the truth. Jennifer asks if she is giving Jack her word on that, then questions what her word is worth since no one here would believe anything she says. Gwen argues that she is answering Jack’s question. Jennifer reminds Gwen that they already talked about this and she swore to her that Laura’s death was an accident and not intentional, so she believed and accepted that. Jennifer asks if that was the truth or not back then. Gwen insists that she was telling her the truth that day that Laura’s death was an accident. Abigail repeats that isn’t what Gwen said to her at the wedding unless she misinterpreted her. Gwen confirms that Abigail heard what she wanted her to hear and she took it just the way she wanted her to. Abigail asks why she would say something like that if it wasn’t true. Gwen asks if she can’t comprehend that she just wanted to hurt her. Gwen assures Jack that it was a lie. Gwen complains that Abigail said she would be her matron of honor and her sister, so she believed her, but instead Abigail used her wedding to kill any chance she had at being happy and to make sure she would lose Xander and Jack. Gwen adds that she was handcuffed, so she couldn’t punch her, so instead she punched her with her words.

Chad continues complaining about Leo’s article, detailing how Chad showed up at his door begging for sex and that he was obsessed with him which Chad also blames Sonny for. Chad plans to call his lawyer to sue the Intruder and Leo for libel. Sonny asks if he’s sure he wants to do that.

Craig asks if Leo is trying to play him again. Leo assures he’s being perfectly straight with him. Craig goes over Leo saying he fell in love with him, but at first he was just another mark. Leo confirms that he originally planned to just marry him, divorce him, and take him for every penny he had. Leo admits he would’ve succeeded if not for Will, Sonny, Chad, Brady, and Chloe.

Nancy informs Clyde that Craig and Leo’s wedding didn’t go off without a hitch but maybe it did. Clyde looks forward to her explaining it to him over lunch. They start to walk off together but Chloe and Brady appear. Chloe questions what the hell Nancy is doing with Clyde. Nancy introduces Clyde to Chloe and Brady. Chloe reveals they know who he is. Nancy then reveals that they are about to go on their first date but Chloe says over her dead body.

Chad tells Sonny that he can either kill Leo or sue him. Sonny doesn’t think he wants to do that since in order to sue for libel, there has to be false statement reported as fact while technically everything in the article is true. Chad blames Sonny for pleading with him to do everything he did. Chad then blames himself for letting Sonny talk him in to it when he knew it’d be a horrible idea.

Leo tells Craig that no matter what was done to try and break them up, he was always one step ahead. Leo calls it kind of scary how much they have in common and how easy and fun it was to be with him. Craig asks if his money had nothing to do with that. Leo admits he liked his money too. Leo adds the pre-nup Chloe drew up was a stroke of genius that he did not anticipate and he first thought that it was game over and he had to walk away, but he signed it because when the choice was giving up everything they had worked for, he didn’t care about losing any of it or that Darius would be furious, he only cared about losing Craig. Leo declares that now the million dollar question is does Craig believe him. Leo thinks that he does but says he doesn’t have to answer. Leo instead asks Craig if he can forgive him and if they can start over.

Abigail asks why they should believe Gwen after all the horrible things that she’s done to their family as it’s hardly a stretch to think she could have killed Laura. Abigail brings up Gwen drugging her and Sarah. Jack reveals that there is reason for hope since Gwen told Xander where he could get the antidote, so she’s doing what she can to undo the harm. Abigail laughs it off and says Gwen’s back is against the wall so she’s actually having to pay for what she has done. Abigail hopes Xander and Maggie test whatever she led them to. Abigail worries that Gwen would do it again since she’s made it clear that anyone who is loved by anyone that she thinks is supposed to love her, is fair game. Abigail thinks Gwen would be willing to hurt Sarah now more than ever. Gwen declares that Abigail has said her piece so she’d like a moment alone with her father now. Jennifer tells Jack that she will support any decision that he makes right now, but she will never trust Gwen to be apart of their family ever again. Jennifer and Abigail then exit the room. Gwen brings up Jack saying at the wedding that he was done with her and now there’s even more damning evidence, so she guesses that nothing will change his mind about her. Jack responds that she will always be his daughter. Jack brings up how Laura sending Gwen’s mother away, making her think that Jack turned his back on her as well but he never chose to do that. Gwen asks if they can move past this. Jack repeats that he will always be his father, but after what she did to Sarah and Abigail, he honestly doesn’t know what kind of a family they could ever be. Jack then walks out of the room, leaving Gwen in tears.

Nancy tells Chloe that she knows it’s hard to see her moving on from her father. Chloe doesn’t care that she’s dating, it’s who she’s dating, since Clyde just got out of prison. Nancy reveals that Clyde told her that and says that men can change. Nancy states that Clyde says he’s changed, so she believes him. Nancy and Clyde then walk off together. Chloe complains to Brady that she just spent months trying to stop one parent from dating the wrong person and now she has to do it with the other parent. Brady tells her that he’ll be here for her through this too. Chloe thanks him and says at least she knows she’s dating the right person as they kiss.

Chad tells Sonny that if he can’t sue Leo, he’ll give his own interview. Sonny questions Chad sinking to Leo’s level. Chad says Leo hit below the belt, so it’s time to return the favor. Sonny thinks Chad should just let it go since stories like this fizzle out on their own while he would just be adding fuel to the fire. Chad says that’s easy for him to say since he’s not even mentioned in the article. Sonny is surprised and looks it over, realizing Chad is right. Chad questions why Leo didn’t come after him and asks if Leo was right that it was why Sonny didn’t come to the wedding. Sonny reminds Chad that Leo said he was coming after everyone who came between he and Craig, so he has a sickening feeling that Chad is just first on the list.

Craig believes that Leo loves him and says part of him wants to forgive him, take him in his arms, and never let him go but he doesn’t trust him and trust matters to him. Craig says he took a huge leap of faith to be with him as he had to stop living a lie. Leo calls that a good thing. Craig notes that in the process, he tore apart his family and hurt the only woman he ever loved, just to love Leo. Leo asks if that means he’s going back to Nancy. Craig says no because he is gay and he will never hide that again but he and Leo are done. Craig informs Leo that he left his stuff downstairs. Leo gets tears in his eyes as he asks if Craig hates him. Craig says he does not, but he cannot be with him. Craig adds that because of Leo, he can now be himself. Craig wishes him luck and kisses him on the cheek. Craig states that with all that happened, he does not regret loving Leo. Leo then exits the room.

Brady finds Sonny in the town square and tells him that he just saw the article where Leo “outed” Chad. Sonny responds that he was there when Chad saw it and it was not pretty. Brady says the picture was kind of funny but says the article was full of lies that were calculated and hurt. Sonny points out that Leo didn’t just go after Chad but after his marriage and his family. Brady finds it odd and wonders why Leo didn’t go after him and Chloe or Sonny. Leo then appears and tells them not to worry, warning Sonny that he is next and when he’s done, Brady and Chloe will be next.

Chloe goes to Craig’s room and says she got his text but she was starting to think he never wanted to see her again. Craig assures that was never going to happen. Chloe says last night was awful and apologizes. Craig says there’s no need as he and Leo have said their goodbyes. Chloe repeats that she’s sorry. Craig says it’s okay and he was upset last night, but after having time to think, he realized that everything Chloe did, she had reason for. Craig understands Chloe did everything because she loves him. Chloe swears that’s why she did and says she has experience in putting her life back together if he needs help. Chloe asks if he wants to eat. Craig tells her that after talking to Leo, he’s made a few decisions. Craig then announces that he’s leaving Salem and going back to New York.

Nancy and Chloe sit together in the Brady Pub for their date. Clyde tells Nancy that he doesn’t know her very well, but what he does know, he likes a lot. Nancy says this is the beginning of their first date but feels that sounded like a kiss off. Clyde calls it an offering for an easy way out since he knows what his son means to him so he doesn’t want to come between Nancy and her daughter. Clyde tells Nancy that if she wants to back out now, that’s cool with him.

Jennifer goes home and looks at a photo of her and her mom on the mantle. Jack comes in behind her and hugs her.

Abigail returns to the interrogation room and tells Gwen that Jack left, so it’s just them and she wants the truth. Abigail asks Gwen if she did or did not kill her grandmother.

Jennifer talks about the arrogance of what Laura did and how Gwen had to pay for it, so she can understand why Gwen would want her dead. Jack informs Jennifer that after she left, Gwen swore to him that she didn’t kill Laura and that she was telling the truth that she was just trying to hurt Abigail. Jack calls that still horrifying since she hurt Abigail enough already. Jennifer wonders which of the two scenarios are the truth. Jack says he doesn’t know.

Abigail asks if Gwen was lying to Jennifer when she said she didn’t kill Laura or was she lying to her when she said she did. Gwen remarks that not knowing is killing Abigail and knowing that, she will never give her an answer. Gwen tells Abigail that she will never tell her what happened to her grandma, so she will never know. Gwen remarks that payback’s a bitch.

Chad is on the phone at home, arguing that his wife is not leaving him for another woman and he did not have a threesome with two men. Chad says he doesn’t know where they get their information, but threatens to make them pay if they print this garbage. Chad hangs up and then gets another call, annoying him further.

Nancy tells Clyde that she loves her daughter but she’s a grown woman and her days of pleasing other people are over. Nancy feels that after what she’s been through the last couple months, she deserves her happy ending.

Chloe asks Craig about his job. Craig reveals that he already gave Seth Burns his resignation as he didn’t feel good about taking the job from Kayla and the hospital will run much better with her in charge. Chloe disagrees and asks if there is no changing his mind. Craig says no, but he’s glad she came over so he could say goodbye before he left. Craig tells her that he’s sorry for how much he hurt her and Nancy. Chloe cries that all she ever wanted was for him to be happy and she knows he would never be happy not being who he really is. Chloe adds that she won’t repeat what she thinks about Leo, but she hopes someday Craig meets a man who is worthy of him. Craig hopes so too. Chloe says despite all the drama and fighting, she was really glad to have him back and she’s going to miss him. Craig and Chloe hug as they cry. Craig declares that no man has ever had a better daughter and he loves her.

Brady and Sonny notice Leo has his bags packed and comments that Craig sent him packing. Leo confirms that he and Craig are done, but he’s not going anywhere. Leo declares that this may have started as a scam, but it became very personal to him, and they all cost him the man he loves. Leo remarks that hell hath no fury like a gay man scorned, because he’s coming for all of them.

Update written by Joseph

Chad and Sonny have breakfast at the DiMera Mansion as Chad fills Sonny in on no one getting married at the double wedding and Leo’s humiliation. Sonny wishes he could have seen Leo’s face when Chad brought in his first husband. Leo then enters the room and declares it looked like this; ready to kill.

Craig sits alone in his hotel room with his cell phone as he officially changes his relationship status on social media to single. There’s a knock at the door. Craig yells for them to go away but it’s Nancy, so he opens the door and asks if she’s here to say “I told you so” because he deserves it.

Xander goes to the Kiriakis Mansion. Maggie rushes up to hug him and says it’s so good to see him. Xander asks how Sarah is. Maggie says she is settling in to the clinic but there hasn’t been any change. Xander knows it must have been hard leaving her like that. Maggie says it was better and asks what Xander is doing here since she thought he and Gwen would be on their honeymoon. Xander reveals there was no honeymoon because there was no wedding.

Gwen sits in the interrogation room at the police station, thinking back to planning her wedding with Xander. Jack then enters the room.

Jennifer is at home, finishing a phone call with Shawn, saying they will be praying that Ciara is found safe and soon. Abigail comes in and asks if the police have any leads at all. Jennifer says no and complains that the world has gone mad as Ciara is missing, Christian Maddox is on the loose, and Allie is possessed by the Devil. Abigail says this might not be a good time but Jennifer wants to know why she came. Abigail thinks back to Gwen whispering to her that she killed her grandmother on purpose. Jennifer asks Abigail what it is. Abigail responds that it’s about Gwen.

Maggie asks Xander what happened and if he’s alright since he was so determined to get married. Xander responds that he couldn’t go through with it because there were things about Gwen that he didn’t know which Maggie questions. Xander tells her it’s about Sarah.

Gwen tells Jack that she wasn’t expecting to see him since he said he was done with her. Jack informs her that this was Jennifer’s idea and warns her not to say anything about Jennifer. Gwen knows he will never believe a word out of her mouth again. Gwen says that she can’t imagine what last night must have been like for him. Jack talks about forgiving Gwen over and over. Gwen acknowledges that she threw that forgiveness back in his face. Jack says last night when he told Gwen that he was done with her, he meant it because he hates what she did, but Jennifer says he won’t be able to pull it off because he can’t do anything about the fact that Gwen is his daughter, so he can’t be done with it. Gwen points out that her mom pulled it off, so she asks why Jack can’t since she’s given him enough reasons. Jack brings up what Gwen did to Abigail and their family and says he can understand why she did it, but what she did to Sarah is unfathomable. Gwen doesn’t expect him to believe her but says the reason she did it was because in a way, The Devil made her do it..

Chad questions how Leo got in to the DiMera Mansion. Leo responds that he told Harold he was the new French maid and asks if it matters. Leo asks if Sonny thought he could do what he did without one final confrontation. Leo complains about Sonny not even showing up at the wedding to look him in the eye. Sonny says he had a work call, otherwise he would not have missed it. Chad argues that Leo is not an innocent victim. Leo remarks about Chad and Abigail blowing up two marriages. Sonny says that what they did was wrong. Leo calls Sonny’s crusade pathetic because Sonny obviously wants him back, which Sonny and Chad laugh at.

Craig tells Nancy to go ahead and enjoy herself as she was right that Leo was a gold digger and he was an utter fool. Craig complains that all of Salem knows what an idiot he is and brings up Nancy saying he would regret the day he let Leo in to his life. Nancy informs him that she came to say she’s sorry.

Gwen tells Jack that trying to explain it would just sound like she’s trying to justify what she did which is not possible. Gwen talks about spending the night in a cell and seeing the way Jack and Xander looked at her whenever she closed her eyes so she didn’t close her eyes all night. Gwen wondered how she made it where it’s impossible for the only two people she cared about to care about her anymore. Gwen talks about Jack coming because he can’t give up on being a father to her. Gwen says she thought about all the things she did to Jack, his family, Abigail, Xander, and to Sarah and Maggie and she realized she did all of that to get what she wanted but she has nothing she wants. Gwen compares it to her mom putting the spike in her arm when someone does something over and over again to ensure they stay the same miserable human being. Gwen says she was telling herself for months that Kristen DiMera blackmailed her in to doing what she was doing but really, she was just like her mother’s drug dealer, and just like her mom did, she put the spike in her own arm.

Chad and Sonny joke about Leo saying that Sonny wants him back. Leo gets in Sonny’s face and says he will never forget what Leo did to him, but he’s ecstatic to play a part in stopping Leo from doing it to anyone else. Leo responds that what he had with Craig was nothing like the dreary time he had with Sonny. Leo remarks that he loved Craig and never even liked Sonny, reminding him that it was a job. Leo calls Sonny not his type and a D- in bed. Leo says he gave Sonny extra credit for effort. Sonny calls that a crock and argues that Leo was very in to it. Leo claims he was faking all of it.

Craig questions what Nancy has to be sorry for when she didn’t do anything. Nancy clarifies that she’s sorry that this happened to him. Nancy knows what it’s like to love someone so much that you ignore the evidence in front of your eyes because it happened to her and now it’s happened to her best friend.

Xander tells Maggie that of all people, he should have been able to see through Gwen’s lies. Maggie doesn’t blame Xander but points out that he did leave Sarah behind the moment he found out she wasn’t going to immediately recover. Maggie admits she’s not being fair but Xander thinks she is. Maggie remembers that she gave her blessing even if she didn’t really mean it. Maggie says she shouldn’t take her anger at Gwen on Xander as he had every right to get on with his life. Maggie adds that they need to figure out what they should do next, now that Sarah wasn’t given the right antidote. Maggie declares that there’s a chance the antidote might work. Xander agrees. Maggie decides to call Kayla but Xander reveals he already has and she believes there’s a good chance the antidote could still work. Xander adds that he asked Chad to reach out to Dr. Rolf again but Rolf apparently got in a trouble with a chemisty experiment gone wrong so he’s in solitary confinement. Maggie declares they have to get a hold of that drug. Xander says he has an idea.

Jack questions Gwen not seeing that she had to tell Xander or Maggie that Kristen was blackmailing her. Gwen was too worried about losing Xander because he loved Sarah more than her. Jack argues that Gwen was carrying all the risk and asks what could’ve happened if Gwen and Ava got caught breaking Kristen out of prison as that carrys a hefty sentence. Gwen remarks that so does murder. Jack questions what she’s talking about.

Jennifer tells Abigail that she’s scaring her and asks her to tell her what it is. Abigail responds that it’s about grandma and it’s hard to even say it. Abigail then reveals to Jennifer that Gwen said to her “I killed that bitch on purpose.”

Leo says the only reason he had anything to do with Sonny was money. Sonny argues that it was the same reason he went after Craig. Leo says maybe in the beginning, but he fell in love with him, and now Craig hates him because of Sonny and Chad. Chad asks if Leo ever takes responsibility for his actions, reminding him that Craig hates him for lying to him over and over again. Sonny reminds Leo that he wouldn’t have even been legally married to Craig, so he could have just come clean with him about having a husband. Leo asks why he cares when Craig isn’t his friend. Leo argues that now Craig is just as miserable as him. Leo says Craig knows what they have is real since he signed the pre-nup, which he never would’ve done if he was only after his money. Chad questions what Leo is doing here as he’s trying to convince the wrong guys. Leo agrees but says since they were so intent on making him pay, he wants them both to know that now it’s his turn.

Craig still can’t believe that Leo has a husband. Nancy jokes about Leo in a dress and encourages Craig, calling him still quite a catch.

Jennifer questions Gwen telling Abigail that she killed Laura on purpose. Jennifer brings up how Gwen kept denying it and insisted it was an accident, so she questions why Gwen would change her story now.

Jack asks why Gwen is talking about murder and what she meant. Gwen covers by saying Abigail talked about what she did being pre-meditated and a second dose of the drug could have killed Sarah. Jack says thank God it didn’t. Gwen points out that she still took Sarah’s life because the Sarah that Xander knew and fell in love with no longer exists. Jack argues that Gwen knew what the drug did to Abigail and what it did to Sarah when Kristen gave it to her. Gwen confirms that she did it with full knowledge. Gwen feels Jack wishes she never existed, like Xander does. Gwen insists that Xander loved Sarah more than her and they both understood that. Gwen states that Xander is the only man she’s ever loved but she’s not the only woman that Xander loved or even the woman he loved best. Gwen adds that Xander left her hanging for weeks, waiting to see if Sarah would recover. Gwen says it’s no excuse but she thinks during those weeks, something inside of her hardened and she kept telling herself over and over that she cannot lose Xander, but now it’s all her fault that she’s lost him. Xander then enters the room, surprising Gwen. Gwen tells him to let her have it. Xander says he’s not here for that or to hear any excuses, he just wants to know what she did with the real antidote. Gwen guesses he wants her to help him get the real Sarah back. Xander argues that he wanted to give her a chance to act like a human being. Gwen asks why start now. Jack tells Gwen not to act like this. Xander just wants an answer and asks what she did with the antidote. Gwen reveals that she still has it, so Xander asks what it will take to get her to tell him where it is.

Abigail tells Jennifer that she’s been wondering the same thing since Gwen kept denying killing Laura even when she was threatening her with the drug, so either she was lying then or lying now. Abigail wonders if she should’ve told Jennifer since she’s still not sure if it’s true.

Nancy admits that a couple weeks ago, the idea of Craig getting dumped at the altar would’ve made her the happiest woman in the world and she would’ve said he got what he deserved, but he’s a good man who made mistakes. Nancy encourages that Craig deserves to be happy. Craig says she does too. Craig remembers Nancy saying something about meeting someone and going on a date. Nancy reveals they were supposed to have dinner last night, but he blew her off. Craig says he’s sorry as they hold hands.

Chad tells Leo not to be so melodramatic. Leo calls himself his worst nightmare and says Chad will rue the day that he screwed him which Chad laughs at. Leo then walks out of the mansion after leaving them with a threat in French which Sonny questions.

Jennifer understands Gwen lying about saying it was an accident to protect herself but doesn’t understand why she would lie about saying it was deliberate as it doesn’t make any sense. Abigail says it was the way she said it and the words she chose. Abigail suggests maybe Gwen was just trying to torment her all over again or something. Jennifer decides there’s only one way to find out.

Jack argues that Gwen just spent the last half hour telling him how much she loves Xander and now he’s miserable and suffering. Jack orders Gwen to tell Xander where the antidote is to maybe undo the damage she has done. Gwen calls it interesting how he put that because Xander asks what it’s going to take to get her to tell him where the antidote is, like if it didn’t even occur to him to just ask her for it because telling him would be the right thing to do. Gwen guesses Xander knows her well enough by now to know she doesn’t do anything unless there is something in it for her. Gwen feels Xander doesn’t think there is one good body in her body and he’s right that there isn’t. Gwen cries that she wants Xander back and asks if they have a deal but Xander says no. Gwen cries that Xander hates her so much that he can’t even lie to protect his precious Sarah. Jack argues for Gwen not to put the spike back in her arm. Gwen says she just needed to know where they stand. Gwen says through all the lies, she did stay true to one thing as she did, does, and will always love Xander. Gwen then agrees to do whatever she can to help him.

Sonny mocks Leo leaving like he did while Chad acknowledges Leo’s threat as being from Louis XV. Sonny looks it up and finds out that it’s an expression of indifference forecasting ruination. Sonny argues that Chad shouldn’t be worried but Chad talks about petty and vindictive Leo can be and now he’s focused on him. Chad thought the whole point of bringing Leo down was to get him out of their lives, so they didn’t have to worry about him anymore. Sonny admits maybe he didn’t think the whole thing through. Chad worries about what Leo will do next. Sonny then sees Chad’s tablet get a news alert that there is news about Chad.

Nancy asks Craig what he will do next. Craig responds that he has absolutely no idea. Nancy asks if Craig is absolutely sure that it’s over between he and Leo. Craig reminds her that Leo was going to swindle him out of everything he owns and wanted to marry him while married to someone else. Nancy points out that Leo is still the guy that brought Craig out of the closet after 30+ years which was life changing. Craig questions if Nancy is sticking up for Leo. Nancy insists she’s just thinking about Craig since Leo really got to him. Craig calls that an understatement. Nancy asks what if Leo is telling the truth that he fell in love with him for real. Craig can’t believe Nancy is saying this. Nancy states that she knows more than anyone what it’s like to be with him and to learn what kind of man he is which leads to love. Nancy suggests maybe Craig got to Leo too. Leo then shows up at his door.

Chad asks Sonny what the news is. Sonny tells him to brace himself as he shows him an article from The Intruder titled “Chad DiMera’s Secret Life” with a photo of him as a drag queen from their time in Arizona and quotes from Leo, claiming that Chad became obsessed with him.

Leo sees Nancy and says he didn’t realize Craig had company. Leo asks if he and Craig can have a moment alone. Nancy points out that they were in the middle of a conversation. Craig thanks Nancy for coming and talking as it means the world to him, but he thinks he has to take care of this. Nancy tells Craig to call her if he needs backup as she then exits the room. Craig then asks Leo what the hell he wants.

Xander returns to the Kiriakis Mansion to inform Maggie that Gwen had the antidote stashed in their hotel room the entire time. Maggie is relieved that he got it. Xander declares that maybe they can save Sarah.

Gwen tells Jack that she supposes Xander found the antidote by now. Jack assures that she did the right thing. Gwen asks if he thinks it will work and Sarah will be Sarah again. Jack responds that he doesn’t know so they will have to wait and see. Gwen hopes it does work but she doesn’t expect Jack to believe that she’s sorry for what she did to Sarah. Jennifer and Abigail then walk in. Jennifer questions if Gwen is sorry that she murdered her mother Laura Horton.

Update written by Joseph

Steve and Kayla sit together at the Brady Pub. Steve talks about wanting them to take a romantic vacation but notes that Kayla is distracted and not interested. Steve understands Kayla is thinking about her job and missing it which Kayla admits. Kayla brings up the board wanting her to fire Marlena and she refused, so they hired Craig to do it but he refused too, so Craig and Marlena still have their jobs but she’s fired. Kayla wonders if maybe she should’ve fired Marlena.

Marlena sits in her office at the hospital and gets a call from Belle. Marlena says she’s been worried about her and asks if she and Shawn are working things out, but Belle shocks Marlena by revealing to her that Johnny was possessed by The Devil.

EJ brings Johnny to the hospital where he sees Chanel and Tripp hugging. Johnny calls out to Chanel, who questions him not being in Italy. Johnny responds that he never went to Italy so Chanel calls him a liar. Chanel turns back to Tripp and thanks him for everything but says she has to go. Johnny stops Chanel and says he needs to talk to her. Chanel asks why she would want to hear anything out of his hateful mouth when he said enough on the phone the other night. Johnny informs Chanel that it wasn’t him on the phone so she questions who it was then. EJ reveals it was Satan. Chanel doesn’t buy it and guesses this is something for Johnny’s movie, pointing out that he bailed on the movie like everything else. EJ assures it’s the truth as Johnny was possessed by the Devil but Chanel doesn’t believe it.

Ben explains to Rafe and Jake that Evan/Christian is working with Allie, who is possessed by the Devil. Jake identifies Allie as the one who knocked him out. Ben knows it sounds crazy but it’s the truth. Ben explains that after Allie drugged him with the tea, she admitted that she was the Devil and that he was after his baby, then the next thing he knew he was chained up in the DiMera Crypt with Johnny. Ben adds that Johnny confirmed what Allie said. Ben declares that Allie kidnapped Ciara.

Allie tells Ciara that she understands she’s upset and wants to be with Ben but they can’t go back to her apartment while Evan is on the loose. Ciara wants to call Rafe and says if they caught Evan, they can go back. Allie agrees if that’s the only way to convince her to go to the cabin. Devil Allie then uses the Devil powers to fake another phone call with Rafe. Ciara cries that she wants to go home but “Rafe” tells her it’s not an option since Evan is out there and dangerous, so they need to go to the cabin now. Ciara asks what about Ben.

Tripp and EJ get Johnny set up in a hospital bed. Tripp notes that he needed fluids and he’ll be back to check on him later as he exits the room. EJ comments that Johnny looks better already. Chanel enters the room so Johnny asks if they can have a moment alone. EJ agrees to step outside. Chanel asks how Johnny is feeling. Johnny says like the world is even scarier than he ever thought. Chanel asks how he is physically. Johnny says he’s not too bad other than a splitting headache. Chanel asks if it’s really true that he was possessed.

Ben panics about Ciara and their baby being in danger of the Devil. Ben asks Jake if Evan said anything about Allie. Jake wishes he could remember more but says he just recognized Evan and then Allie knocked him out from behind. Jake says when he came to, they were gone and Rafe was there. Ben feels Jake must have overheard something. Jake says he can’t remember. Ben suggests there is a way for Jake to remember and brings up Marlena hypnotizing him to recover memories so maybe she can do the same for him. Ben asks what Rafe thinks. Rafe says anything that can help them find Allie and Ciara is worth a shot.

Steve argues that Kayla doesn’t mean that she should’ve fired Marlena which Kayla admits. Kayla explains that she refused to fire her because she’s a great friend, an esteemed psychiatrist, and she didn’t deserve that. Steve points out that Kayla didn’t deserve to be fired either. Kayla agrees that she’s being fired for doing the right thing. Steve calls it unfair and outrageous. Steve praises Kayla for the contributions she made to the hospital as chief of staff. Steve wishes he could do something about it like going to talk to them about the stupid decision they made. Kayla feels it wouldn’t make a difference. Steve reminds Kayla that they came out to have fun tonight. Steve suggests throwing darts but Kayla wants to sit here and wallow. Steve tries to entice her by offering to paint their bathroom if she gets a bullseye.

Johnny reveals to Chanel that he was possessed since Christmas and reminds her how he wasn’t feeling good on New Year’s Eve which was because the Devil was taking control of his body. Chanel recalls Johnny missing the New Year’s countdown. Johnny says he was getting ready but that’s the last thing he remembers. Chanel asks about their wedding reception where he divorced her and totally humiliated her. Johnny assures that was never him and he doesn’t remember any of it. Johnny asks if Chanel believes him. Chanel says it’s hard to unhear the things he said to her that night because she had never been hurt in her entire life. Johnny insists it was not him and that all he remembers is that she made him feel more loved than anyone ever has. Johnny calls Chanel everything he ever wanted so he would have never asked her for a divorce because he never stopped loving her and still hasn’t.

EJ explains to Tripp that Allie is now possessed and no one knows where she is. EJ is sorry to burden him since he knows it’s a lot to take in. EJ mentions that he needs to go inform Marlena and hopes she can help them track down Allie, leaving Tripp in shock.

Marlena tells Belle to hang in there as she finishes their phone call and says she’ll see her at home. EJ then enters her office and informs Marlena that he needs to speak with her as it’s urgent. Marlena reveals that Belle just informed her that it was not her who was possessed but Johnny and now Belle. EJ declares that they need to find Allie and to tell Sami right now.

Chanel recalls Johnny being so cruel that night when he broke her heart. Johnny says he’s so sorry. Chanel says she was so in love with him and so happy to be his wife but he treated her like she was nothing to him and that getting involved with her was a terrible mistake. Chanel remembers wishing it was a nightmare but it wasn’t. Chanel brings up Allie being there. Johnny reveals that it’s okay as he knows she slept with her. Chanel talks about not knowing where to turn or what to do as she was in so much pain and she felt like there was something wrong with her. Chanel adds that Allie was there to comfort her and make her feel like it wasn’t her fault and she was worthy of love. Johnny says he gets it and she doesn’t have to explain what she did with Allie or Tripp.

Kayla throws a bullseye on her first try. Tripp enters the Pub so Kayla excitedly tells Tripp about it. Steve tells Kayla that the game is not over yet. Kayla asks if Tripp wants to take a shot but he says he’s not in the mood. Steve asks him what the matter is. Tripp responds that he’s a little sad, worried, and kind of freaked out but he didn’t mean to ruin their night. Kayla says it’s okay and asks if he’s still upset about what happened with Allie. Tripp says that too so Steve asks what else happened.

Devil Allie has her fake phone call with Rafe telling Ciara that there is nothing she can do for Ben. Ciara argues that Ben needs her and she should be with him now. “Rafe” repeats that Evan is dangerous and wants revenge so she needs to put her baby first and let Allie take her to the cabin. Allie remarks that Rafe is right. Ciara reluctantly agrees to go for Ben and their son. “Rafe” assures Ciara it’s for the best and thanks Allie for taking care of her. Allie comments that she just wants to make sure Ciara and the baby are alright as she hangs up the phone. Allie asks Ciara what she thinks. Ciara gives in to going to the cabin so Allie starts the car back up.

Marlena calls Sami and leaves a message for her to call as soon as she gets it. Marlena guesses that where ever Sami and Lucas have gone, they have terrible cell phone reception. EJ wonders if they should get the police involved but Marlena says not until she talks to Shawn. Ben and Jake rush in to the office. EJ informs them that they were just talking about Allie’s possession. Ben reveals that Allie is not just possessed but they think it’s possible that she kidnapped Ciara since the Devil is still after their baby. Marlena declares that they are not giving up until Ciara and the baby are safe. Marlena asks if they have any idea where Allie might have taken Ciara. Ben says that’s where she comes in.

Chanel questions Johnny knowing about her and Tripp. Johnny confirms he knows that they got drunk together, were kissing at a bar, and went back to her place. Chanel assures that nothing happened because Paulina knew they were doing it for the wrong reasons so she refused to let them go to her room and called Tripp a cab to send him home. Johnny jokes that he knew he liked Paulina.

Tripp informs Kayla and Steve that Allie is now possessed and apparently Allie has vanished so no one knows where she went. Tripp hopes they will find her and get her the help she needs. Steve says if Marlena’s family got the Devil out of her, he bets they will be able to help Allie. Steve adds that there might be a silver lining in all of this.

At the hospital, Rafe finishes a call with the police about searching for Allie. Rafe informs EJ that there’s no word yet as they ran Allie’s license plates but no one has seen her. EJ asks if there are no leads at all. Rafe mentions that Jake thinks he might have seen Allie take Ciara, so they took him to Marlena to see if she can help him remember more. EJ confirms that Marlena is hypnotizing Jake about the incident as they speak.

Marlena begins hypnotizing Jake and assures that he is safe in her office. Marlena takes him back to being at Ben and Ciara’s apartment, waiting for them to come back. Jake remembers the knock at the door and it was Evan, who had just escaped from prison and he said that a new friend helped him do it. Jake says he asked about the friend but that was when he was hit from behind and the next thing he remembers is coming to with Rafe there. Marlena wants to move in to his subconscious and asks about when he was hit. Jake repeats that he didn’t see who it was. Marlena encourages him to block out all other senses and tell her what he hears. Jake remembers Allie saying that he wasn’t part of the plan but he may as well make himself useful. Jake tells Marlena that it’s definitely Allie’s voice but he can’t understand. Marlena asks if he heard any other voices. Jake says he can’t make out what they are saying. Ben asks if Ciara was there. Marlena urges Jake to focus on if he can hear Ciara’s voice.

Kayla questions how Steve could even say there’s a silver lining in possession. Steve says maybe it didn’t come out right but he meant that if Allie was really possessed by the Devil then she wasn’t in control when she cheated on Tripp so maybe that can give him comfort about their relationship. Tripp wishes he could blame what happened on the Devil, that was all Allie because she couldn’t have been possessed the night she slept with Chanel because Johnny was.

EJ informs Rafe that Johnny is in with Chanel. Rafe mentions Ben saying that they were chained in the DiMera Crypt and things got crazy with Andre showing up. EJ admits that it was Susan who alerted them to the fact that Johnny was possessed and not in Italy. EJ admits he only went to the Crypt to appease Susan but he walked in and saw Andre choking Johnny, so if not for Susan, he would’ve lost his son tonight. Rafe is glad she said something to him then. EJ thanks God for that. EJ questions what kind of father or person he is that for all these months his son was in a fight for his soul and he had no idea.

Chanel tells Johnny that she and Tripp realized that Paulina was right that sleeping together would’ve been stupid so they were just bonding as friends and the next day, they were just happy they could still be friends. Johnny says he’s happy too. Johnny admits that when he saw Chanel and Tripp leave the bar, he assumed the worst. Chanel asks how he even knows and if he had been following her. Johnny says he would never do that and tells her that the Devil showed him. Chanel doesn’t know what that means. Johnny explains that the Devil chained him up in the DiMera Crypt and tortured him by showing him like a movie of Chanel and Tripp drunk, making out, and leaving together which drove him crazy. Chanel asks if he wasn’t possessed in the Crypt, so how the Devil tortured him and chained him up. Chanel questions using someone’s body to do that.

Steve is shocked to learn Johnny was also possessed. Kayla points out that would explain his strange behavior like breaking Chanel’s heart. Tripp adds that it turns out Johnny never went to Italy and it seems Devil Allie had him chained up in the DiMera Crypt. Steve recalls that’s where Marlena kept John and Susan when she was possessed. Tripp explains that EJ just found him tonight and brought him to the hospital. Tripp says he checked him out and he’s shaken up and weak but he’ll be okay.

Rafe encourages EJ that he had no way of knowing what was going on with Johnny. EJ complains that he’s his father so he’s supposed to know. EJ talks about Johnny doing things out of character all these months and he never once thought to ask what caused it. Rafe suggests maybe he didn’t notice because those changes were happening gradually. EJ insists there was nothing gradual about it like how he discarded Chanel at their wedding reception which was terribly sudden and extreme. EJ admits that he felt oddly proud of him at the time. EJ says everyone else was horrified by his behavior but he defended him as he thought Johnny just came to his senses and realized Chanel was not a suitable partner for him. EJ adds that he was relieved that Johnny finally accepted DiMera was his legacy and birth right. Rafe acknowledges that he’ll never fully understand that DiMera code. EJ notes that Johnny didn’t accept that code. EJ says all the years that he and Johnny didn’t get along, he assumed was because Johnny looked to Rafe as a role model more than he ever did to him. Rafe tells EJ that Johnny was always his own man, even as a kid. EJ thought Johnny finally grew in to the heir he always imagined but now finding out those qualities he thought he inherited from him were actually Satan’s. EJ wonders what that says about him, that he was finally proud of his son when he wasn’t himself at all.

Marlena asks Jake again if he can hear Ciara. Jake identifies Ciara’s voice and that she’s upset, crying, and yelling for Ben to wake up. Marlena wants Jake to now use all his senses and asks if he can see or feel anything. Jake responds that he feels a hand on his wrist and it’s Allie saying that Ben is gone. Jake then complains that his head is killing him. Marlena decides to end the session. Jake mentions his headache so Marlena suggests he get checked out in the ER for a possible concussion. Jake tells Ben that he’s sorry he doesn’t know where Allie and Ciara went. Ben says at least they know now that they were together. Ben doesn’t get why Ciara would be yelling at him to wake up though since he wasn’t there.

Allie brings Ciara to the Horton Cabin. Ciara says she hasn’t been there in years but recalls her parents taking her there often and fishing with her dad. Ciara states that her dad is gone and now Ben is gone too. Allie encourages her to feel better but Ciara cries that her husband is dead, so she’s never going to feel better again. Allie says she needs to think of her baby now as Ben would want her to do everything possible to make sure the baby comes in to the world safe and sound. Ciara steps out while the Devil remarks that now with Ben out of the way, this will be the perfect place for his baby to be born.

Steve and Kayla question Johnny and now Allie being possessed. Steve says it’s a lot for Tripp to take in and offers to take him home but Tripp says it’s okay and he will get back to work. Tripp thanks them for always being there. Kayla says they will see him soon. Tripp hugs them both and then exits the Pub.

EJ tells Rafe that if he was in a better mood, he would appreciate the irony of him crying on Rafe’s shoulder for comfort. Rafe points out that they both care about Johnny, so all that matters is that he’s going to be okay. Rafe adds that EJ still has a chance to do things differently. EJ worries about all the time he lost but agrees that they have Johnny back and that’s the best news. Rafe says he has to check in with the station for news on Allie and Ciara. EJ says to let him know if he can be of any help. Rafe says he will and steps away to make the call.

Chanel doesn’t get it since there was no exorcism of Johnny and questions why the Devil left Johnny’s body and where he went when he did. Chanel questions what Johnny is not telling her. Johnny says this won’t be easy to hear as he reveals that when the Devil left his body, he went in to Allie.

Ben questions why Ciara would be calling out to him and crying if he wasn’t in the room. Ben asks if Jake remembers anything else. Jake says it seemed like Ciara and Allie were really close to him. Ben questions why Ciara would be calling Jake by his name. Marlena brings up Jake saying he felt Allie’s hand on his wrist. Jake says it was like she was checking his pulse. Jake then comes to the realization that the Devil can change forms like when the Devil made Johnny look like him, so he asks if the Devil can make other people change forms too. Marlena confirms that the Devil made Tripp look like Jan and turned Susan in to a cat. Jake figures that is it and that Allie made him look like Ben which is why she was taking his pulse and Ciara was crying. Ben realizes now that Ciara thinks he’s dead.

Ciara comes back from the bathroom so Allie asks if she’s feeling better. Ciara wants to use Allie’s phone to call her mom. Allie doesn’t think that’s a good idea. Ciara doesn’t care and repeats that she wants to call her mom and hear her voice. Allie says whatever helps her through this. Allie then checks her phone and it has no service, so it’s just them.

Update written by Joseph

Devil Allie tells Evan that it’s the second time she’s had to knock Jake out as he’s really becoming a pain in the ass. Evan asks what they are going to do with him. Allie says it wasn’t part of the plan but since he’s here, he may as well make himself useful.

Susan wonders if EJ was right about her psychic powers and decides she just needs some rest. Susan then lays down in the bed with Johnny’s coat and dreams about arguing with Johnny being the Devil where the Devil revealed himself to her and then made her lose her memory. Susan then wakes up in a panic, realizing that Johnny has been possessed by the Devil.

Belle asks EJ if Susan said why she thought Johnny was in danger. EJ explains that Susan kept insisting that Johnny didn’t write the letter left behind and that his brother Andre did, even though Andre has been dead for years.

Andre announces that since Ben decided to save Johnny’s life, he’s about to end Ben’s. Johnny warns that killing Ben would be a big mistake which Andre questions.

Ciara returns home and is shocked to find Evan inside. Evan claims he was just catching up with an old friend as he reveals The Devil has transformed Jake in to “Ben” now being on the floor. Evan says Ciara can scream but he won’t hear her. Ciara questions what he did to him. Evan asks what it looks like and claims that he killed her husband.

Belle says EJ obviously knows Susan better than she does, but asks what if she’s right. EJ explains that Susan was first convinced it was Tony but then latched onto the idea that it was Andre. EJ thinks all the talk of demonic possession has gotten to Susan, so hopefully a good night’s rest will get her together.

Susan doesn’t understand why she can’t remember any of this. Susan then prays to God to bring her memory back so maybe she can save Johnny from the Devil’s powers. Susan then has more flashbacks to her confrontation with Devil Johnny and how he used his powers to convince her to leave Salem. Susan realizes that the Devil touched her forehead, making her forget that he possessed Johnny.

Andre mocks Johnny making a friend in Ben but says that’s about to come to an end. Johnny asks why he would want to strangle Ben when he’s a stone cold killer and they could use him. Andre says he has his orders. Johnny argues that Ben is the Necktie Killer while Andre was the Salem Slasher so they could do damage to the world. Johnny asks if Andre is not allowed to think for himself anymore and if he’s just been turned in to the Devil’s little errand boy.

Tripp and Chanel eat together in the town square. Tripp and Chanel talk about being done letting things that remind them of Allie get to them. Chanel declares that Allie has caused them both enough misery, so it’s time for that to stop which Tripp agrees with.

Ciara checks on “Ben” and argues that it can’t be real and that Evan is supposed to be in prison. Evan complains about being locked up while Ben was playing house with Ciara. Ciara starts to cry as she tries to wake “Ben” up. Evan then grabs a knife from the kitchen and tells Ciara that she’s wasting her breath because he’s dead and she’s next. Devil Allie then appears to knock out Evan with a frying pan to pretend to Ciara that she’s just Allie and she asks who Evan was. Ciara explains that he’s Orpheus’ son and an escaped convict. Ciara says she’ll explain more later but now they have to help “Ben” because Evan tried to strangle him. Ciara cries that “Ben” is cold. Allie tells Ciara that she’s sorry but he doesn’t have a pulse. Devil Allie remarks that this is out of God’s hands now and that Ben is gone as Ciara breaks down crying.

Andre warns Johnny that he may have been Stefano’s favorite but Stefano is dead while he is undead. Johnny claims he meant no disrespect but talks about what a duo Andre and Ben could be. Andre tells Johnny that he’s sorry but he’s not interested. Andre then wraps the necktie around Ben’s neck.

Belle asks EJ when he last spoke to Johnny. EJ says it was before he was sent to prison. Belle asks if it’s unusual for them to be out of touch that long. Belle knows their relationship is complicated. EJ thinks she means that he’s a terrible father. Belle apologizes if she triggered him by asking if he talked to Johnny recently. EJ says it was his guilt as he often feels like his son is a stranger to him, maybe because he reminds him so much of Sami. EJ declares that he won’t give up and hopes to earn his son’s respect eventually. EJ adds that he’s contacted him numerous times to no response. Belle questions the only evidence that Johnny is okay being a letter that Susan is convinced he didn’t write. EJ talks about Susan’s premonition this time being so vague. Susan then rushes in, explaining that it wasn’t a premonition but a memory. Susan declares that Johnny is the Devil himself.

Ciara tells Allie that she’s wrong because Ben always comes back to her. Ciara tells Allie to call an ambulance but Allie says it won’t help. Ciara says she’ll do it herself. Allie warns that Evan is starting to wake up so Ciara needs to go now. Ciara cries that she can’t leave Ben. Allie tells Ciara to think about herself and the baby, so she needs to go. Ciara cries that she loves Ben as Allie hurries Ciara out the door with her.

EJ asks what Susan is saying. Susan apologizes to Belle and explains that the Devil set her up. Belle points out that Johnny was the only other person that was here that day. Susan explains that Johnny was at Marlena’s exorcism, so the Devil left her body to take over Johnny’s. EJ calls it ridiculous but Belle points out that it would explain why she doesn’t have the gaps in her memory like Marlena did. Susan confirms that Satan wasn’t using Belle to do his bidding, it was Johnny.

Johnny argues that Andre isn’t thinking this through. Andre yells at him to shut up and let him get on. Johnny talks about Andre living in Stefano’s shadow and now doing the Devil’s dirty work. Johnny urges Andre to think about how he will be remembered if he forced Ben to go on a killing spree with him instead. Johnny asks why Andre would strangle Ben when he could make him want to kill again.

Chanel tells Tripp that it’s interesting how they bonded over being hurt by the same person. Tripp admits it feels really good to vent to someone who totally gets it. Chanel agrees that it helps. Tripp decides he’s going to the gym before work. Tripp tells her that next time, lunch is on him. Tripp then gets a call from Rafe, asking if he could possibly come over to Nicole’s and watch Henry until she gets back. Tripp asks where Allie is. Rafe says that Nicole got a text that Allie had something important to deal with. Tripp questions it being more important than her kid. Rafe understands but says he has a case to handle. Tripp agrees to be right there and hangs up. Tripp tells Chanel so much for the gym as Rafe is alone with Henry and has to leave while Allie left a text that something came up. Chanel points out that Allie did the same thing the night before she broke up with her. Tripp questions Allie neglecting her son.

Devil Allie drives Ciara in her car while Ciara complains that this is a mistake and they should’ve stayed because Allie is not an expert in checking pulses so Ben could still be alive and in shock. Ciara wants Allie to turn around and go back but Allie says they can’t go back since Evan is on the loose, so Ben would want her to get her as far away from him as possible.

Evan regains consciousness and says the crazy bitch must have turned on him. Evan says he really wanted to kill Ben and Ciara himself, so he feels cheated. Evan decides he should get out of here before the cops show up, so he exits the apartment, leaving Jake unconscious on the floor. Jake then starts to move.

Belle goes over the Devil wiping Susan’s memory of realizing that he was in Johnny. EJ questions the Devil possessing Johnny and then convincing him to go to Italy. Susan argues that Johnny isn’t in Italy and didn’t write the letter, so she knows Johnny is still in Salem. Belle says they better find him then. EJ and Susan talk about how the letter didn’t sound like Johnny. Susan points out that it sounded more like Andre. EJ reminds her that Andre is dead. Susan asks who stays dead in this town. Belle asks where they should start looking. Susan informs them that the Devil has a favorite spot where he tormented her and John and it’s right out there in the family crypt. EJ questions her saying Johnny has been in the crypt this entire time which she confirms. Belle tells EJ that Susan is right since John told her all about the crypt, so he has to go check it out. Belle decides she will call Eric because if Johnny is possessed, there will have to be an exorcism. EJ can’t believe they are talking about this as he thought this whole Devil thing was mass hysteria. Susan insists that it’s real, so EJ agrees to go to the crypt. Susan declares that they will have to stop the Devil as she and EJ head outside.

Ciara asks Allie where they are going since they should be going to the police station, looking out for Christian/Evan, and calling for help for Ben. Devil Allie uses his powers to create a fake phone call with Rafe and puts it on speaker so Ciara hears “Rafe” saying that he’s already at Ciara’s and that it was too late for Ben. “Rafe” instructs Allie to send Ciara somewhere safe like the Horton Cabin which Allie then agrees to do. Allie tells Ciara that she has to think of her baby now and that she’s going to take good care of them.

Rafe breaks in to Ben and Ciara’s apartment to find Jake regaining consciousness on the floor and asks him what happened. Jake explains he answered a knock at the door and it was the guy who locked up Ciara, Christian Maddox. Rafe acknowledges that Christian escaped from prison tonight but Jake says it was somebody else. Rafe asks where Ben and Ciara are and if he has them. Jake complains of his head hurting while Rafe encourages him to stay with him.

Andre tells Johnny that he can see he’s learned the art of the pitch, so he’s agreed not to kill Ben, but he did promise the Devil a kill, so he’s afraid Johnny’s dreams are coming to an end. Andre starts to strangle Johnny. Ben yells for him to let him go. EJ then bursts in to the Crypt to save Johnny. EJ asks what’s happening. Ben says Andre was trying to kill him. Andre claims to be Tony and that he’s been possessed by the Devil. Susan then walks in and stabs Andre in the back, causing him to turn back in to dust. EJ questions what the hell she has done. Susan explains that it wasn’t Tony, it was Andre. EJ thanks Susan for saving Johnny’s life. Johnny and Ben ask to be un chained. EJ tells Johnny that he’s so sorry he didn’t figure this out earlier but he’s glad he’s still alive. Johnny admits it was scary. EJ gets Johnny freed from the chains and then hands the key to Susan. Johnny declares that he has to find Chanel. Susan doesn’t want Johnny going anywhere until they know he’s not possessed. Johnny points out that he’s been chained this whole time. Ben assures that Johnny is telling the truth and is not possessed anymore as the Devil has moved on. EJ asks who is possessed now.

Ciara argues that this doesn’t make sense since if Ben were dead, she would feel it inside as that’s how connected they are. Allie guesses she’s just in shock and encourages her to lie back and close her eyes since stress is not good for the baby. Ciara complains that if Ben is really gone, she’ll never feel good again.

Tripp and Chanel go to Nicole’s to watch Henry. Tripp finishes a work call while Chanel finishes putting Henry to sleep. Tripp thanks her for coming with him as Henry hadn’t seen him in awhile so he was worried that Henry would be scared of him. Chanel assures that Henry wasn’t scared and smiled big when he saw him. Chanel cannot believe that Allie said she was too busy to watch her own son. Tripp agrees it’s unlike her and asks if she has any idea what’s going on with her. Tripp worries that things have gotten to be too much for Allie like being raped, having Henry at such a young age, her parents leaving, and what happened between them. Chanel admits she and Johnny didn’t make things any easier. Tripp and Chanel complain about Johnny. Chanel adds that she’s thankful that Paulina stopped them from sleeping together as things would have gotten a lot messier. Tripp agrees that sex and drunk doesn’t work out. Chanel feels that would’ve ruined their chances of being friends. Tripp gets a text from Nicole that Holly’s dance class is over so they are heading home. Tripp offers to drop Chanel off on his way to the hospital but Chanel asks if she can go with him to visit Lani. Tripp says he’d like her company.

Johnny explains to EJ that the Devil went from him to Allie and locked him up in here. Johnny insists they need to get Allie help and he needs to see Chanel. EJ assures he will but he’s going to the hospital first. Susan gets Ben free from the chains. Ben talks about Allie knocking him out and they don’t know what she did to Ciara, so he has to find her before it’s too late. Ben then races out of the Crypt.

Devil Allie remarks that she knows Ciara doesn’t believe it, but she’s going to take such good care of her. Devil Allie’s eyes glow as she continues driving. Allie promises they will be safe at the cabin. Ciara demands that Allie turn around as she wants to go home.

Johnny insists that he’s fine and doesn’t need to go to the hospital. EJ questions how long it’s been since he’s eaten. Johnny almost collapses so EJ decides he’s going to the hospital and then they will deal with Allie and find Chanel. EJ instructs Susan to go back to the house to inform Belle as they then exit the Crypt.

Jake tells Rafe that he feels like he got hit with a sledgehammer but it wasn’t Christian since he was looking at him when he got nailed from behind. Rafe asks if he has any idea where Ben and Ciara are now. Jake says Ciara said she hadn’t seen Ben since waking up this morning and she was heading to the hospital to see if Marlena had seen Ben. Rafe worries that they now have no idea where either one of them are. Jake suggests maybe Ciara found Ben and they are together. Rafe hopes they are somewhere where Christian can’t track them down.

Susan returns to the living room and informs Belle that they found Johnny in the Crypt, so EJ had to take him to the hospital but she thinks he will be okay. Susan talks about how Johnny was chained up. Belle worries that he could have died. Susan says Johnny will be fine and then reveals that the Devil is now in Allie.

Allie questions Ciara wanting to turn the car around. Allie says she’s sorry but they can’t do that. Ciara orders her to stop the car now or she’s going to scream.

At the hospital, Chanel and Tripp catch up with each other. Chanel tells him that Lani is hungry so she’s going to get her something to eat while Tripp jokes that the hospital barely survived without him. Tripp tells Chanel that he’s really glad they are getting along so he’s really sorry if he ever hurt her feelings while Allie was deciding which one she wanted. Chanel admits she should’ve been upfront with him about how she felt about Allie since he didn’t deserve what happened. Chanel praises Tripp as a catch. Tripp points out that he hasn’t had luck with women. Chanel says that’s just because he hasn’t found the right woman but she predicts someday soon, he will meet the right woman who will be so lucky to have a guy like him. Tripp and Chanel embrace as EJ brings Johnny in to the hospital and sees them.

Belle complains that she wanted to believe the Devil was gone and asks Susan if she’s absolutely sure that he’s taken over Allie. Susan confirms that she is as Johnny and Ben told her the whole story. Susan wonders what the Devil has Allie doing now.

Evan/Christian shows up in the DiMera Crypt and notes that Allie said he could hang out here, but didn’t mention how creepy it was. He notes the chains and remarks that it looks like he missed all the fun.

Rafe thinks Jake should get looked at for a concussion. Jake says he’ll be fine but Rafe insists. Jake tries to stand but falls so he agrees that a trip to the hospital is not a bad idea. Rafe and Jake go to leave but Ben arrives, asking where Ciara is. Jake questions where Ben has been since Ciara is out looking for him. Ben announces that they have to find her because the Devil is back and still wants their baby.

Allie stops the car and tells Ciara that she’s upset but not thinking straight, so she’s here to keep her safe and insists on bringing her to the cabin. Ciara cries that she wants to go home and be with Ben, feeling that she abandoned him. Allie tells Ciara that Ben is gone but Ciara insists that she wants to go home right now. Ciara talks about Ben being the love of her life and she needs to be with him. Allie points out their wedding vows say til death do them part and now it’s done just that.

Update written by Joseph

Jan reveals to Belle that she’s moving in. Belle doesn’t understand as Jan is supposed to be in prison. Jan explains that Shawn came to her rescue, convinced them to let her out and then asked her to move in with him. Shawn argues that’s not how it went down as Jan has a medical condition that requires her to be on bed rest for the duration of her pregnancy. Belle questions Jan not being able to rest in prison. Jan complains that it’s not very restful there. Shawn says that the judge and warden agreed to put Jan on house arrest. Jan talks about how grateful she is to be here while the prison is full of dangerous and unsavory characters.

Devil Allie informs Evan that Ben and Ciara are having a baby. Evan mentions hearing that from Clyde. Allie says the baby is very important to her and also to Ben, but their plan for the kids future don’t really align.

At the DiMera Mansion, EJ calls Johnny, leaving a message that he needs him to sign back over his DiMera shares and he also misses him, so he would like to hear from him. EJ hangs up and looks at a photo of Johnny on the table.

Ben and Johnny hear noise outside. Johnny declares that someone is outside so they are saved as someone then breaks open the door but it’s just the dead Andre DiMera, who questions all the commotion.

Ciara goes home looking for Ben. Ciara wonders where he is since he’s not at work like the note said. Jake arrives, asking if Ben is there because he needs to talk to them. Ciara informs him that Ben is not there as she just woke up this morning and he was gone. Ciara says she’s been looking everywhere but it’s like Ben disappeared in to thin air, so she’s starting to think something really bad happened to him.

Ben thinks Andre is Tony and tries to get him to save them but Johnny tells him to save his breath. Ben complains about Ciara needing him. Johnny then reveals to Ben that it’s not Tony, but Andre.

Belle questions why Shawn would move Jan Spears in to their home. Shawn says it was the only way to get her out and he could keep an eye on her. Jan says she can’t get in to trouble with the ankle monitor on and being on bed rest. Belle questions Shawn not thinking to run this by her before moving her in. Shawn points out that Belle hadn’t been living here. Belle argues that she didn’t move out and was staying with her parents. Shawn argues that Belle said she didn’t want to come home. Belle says she obviously changed her mind. Shawn questions that being why she’s back. Belle confirms that Eric convinced her to come home to try to work things out but obviously that was a huge mistake. Jan smiles as she watches on.

EJ talks on the phone to the head of security at DiMera about trying to track down Johnny. EJ warns that he’s going to be CEO again soon and then he will fire their ass. Susan Banks walk in and tells EJ to do something about his anger. EJ is surprised that Susan is back in town. Susan tells EJ to direct her to Johnny now. EJ says he’s not here and asks what is so urgent. Susan worries that Johnny is in danger.

Ben argues that Andre DiMera is dead after Abigail smashed his head with an urn. Ben asks if Andre is a ghost. Johnny thinks Andre has been summoned by the Devil to do his dirty work. Johnny informs Ben that Andre visited before to use his blood to forge a note, making it seem like he left town. Andre confirms that it worked like a charm. Ben asks why Andre is here this time and what the hell the Devil wants with them now.

Ciara shows Jake the note from Ben that Allie found but Ben wasn’t at the garage and Clyde hasn’t seen him either. Ciara worries about if Ben got in a car accident on his way to work. Ciara talks about the tea that Allie brought over so she worries that Ben could have got in an accident and be lying in a ditch somewhere. Ciara decides she’s calling the police.

Evan doesn’t get what Allie wants with Ben and Ciara’s baby. Allie asks if it matters. Evan argues that he’s a father, so as much as he hates Ben and Ciara, he would never do anything to harm a child. Allie insists that she’s very invested in the baby which is why she wants to get rid of Ben because he could screw everything up. Evan asks if she thinks Ben would be a bad influence on his kid. Allie says it’s something like that so she needs Ben out of the picture and that’s where Evan comes in. Evan asks to be clear if she is asking him to kill Ben Weston.

Shawn asks Belle not to go. Belle asks if she’s supposed to stick around and play three’s company with them. Belle argues that Jan is loving every second of this since she wants him all to herself. Belle declares that’s fine by her.

Devil Allie says Evan is asking an interesting question. Evan asks if that’s what she wants. Allie remarks that it would be kind of fun to watch Ben die but it’d be much more satisfying to torment him for the rest of his life. Evan asks how to do that. Allie brings up when Evan held Ciara captive and made her think Ben die would a fake newspaper article and everything. Evan points out that she didn’t buy it. Allie says that’s because he didn’t have a partner to sell it, so this time they will be much more convincing. Evan feels it will be difficult since he’s stuck in prison. Allie then reveals that she is breaking him out.

Ciara finishes a call with Rafe and informs Jake that he said it’s technically to early to hire a missing persons report but he will get the cops on it as a favor. Jake hopes she hears something soon. Jake decides he will get out of her hair but Ciara asks him to stay or else she will go crazy sitting here alone waiting for him. Ciara brings up that Jake said he had something important to talk to them about. Jake says it can wait but Ciara wants the distraction. Jake says it will sound a little batty as he brings up how they thought Johnny was possessed by the Devil. Jake reveals he’s beginning to think they were right.

EJ asks Susan why she thinks Johnny is in trouble. Susan says she had a strong premonition of Johnny in peril and pain. EJ says he hasn’t seen Johnny in months since by the time he was released from prison, he was gone to Italy. Susan questions Johnny leaving the country without saying goodbye. EJ says his note said that he needed to go find himself. EJ shows Susan the note. Susan shouts that EJ has been deceived as Johnny did not write this.

Ben tells Andre that he’s not writing a letter to trick Ciara in to thinking he left town and that she wouldn’t believe it anyway. Andre points out that Ciara fell for this morning’s note which bought them time to put all the pieces in place, so it’s all coming together. Ben tries to convince Andre to let them go and offers to do anything. Andre then claims he’s here to offer him a deal. Andre offers to grant Ben his freedom on the condition that he kills Johnny.

EJ tells Susan that he knows Johnny’s handwriting and his signature. Susan assures that Johnny did not write the letter. EJ asks how she can tell. Susan says she’s getting electric vibrations from the letter and that someone else definitely wrote it with dark energy. EJ asks who it was. Susan says she’s seeing his face and believes that it was Tony. EJ doubts that since Tony has had his hands full dealing with Anna and Sarah. EJ says it doesn’t make sense for Tony to fake a letter from Johnny. Susan tries again and reveals that it was Andre DiMera. EJ calls that impossible since Andre is dead. Susan guesses somebody forgot to tell him that.

Andre asks Ben if they have a deal. Ben refuses to kill anyone. Andre points out that Ben has done it before and claims this time it’s for a good cause as it’s the chance to reunite with Ciara and their unborn child. Ben is sure there is another way. Andre declares that’s the deal and the terms are not negotiable. Johnny asks why the Devil wants him dead. Andre says the Devil likes to clean up after himself and he’s done with Johnny, but just getting started with Ben. Ben refuses to be a murderer again. Andre says he can see Ben thinking that he could save Johnny by taking his own life but they’ve already dealt with that and calls it the Susan Banks Clause. Ben calls this insane. Andre tells Ben that if he wants to be with Ciara, he just has to kill Johnny in his home and the weapon is up to him. Johnny asks why the Devil doesn’t just kill him, himself. Andre explains that the Devil can’t because Allie puts up too much of a fight but says she is just postponing the inevitable. Andre declares that it will be so entertaining to watch Ben end Johnny’s life. Ben refuses to do it. Johnny thanks Ben. Andre offers Ben a taste of freedom and releases the chains. Ben tries to run out the door but Andre says it’s only a taste of freedom. Ben takes a swing at Andre but he teleports. Andre tells Ben to save his energy to finish off Johnny. Andre then offers Ben a necktie as his weapon of choice but Ben says no. Andre tells Ben that all he has to do is wrap the tie around Johnny’s neck and squeeze, then he will be free to go home to Ciara.

Ciara tells Jake that Johnny wasn’t possessed by the Devil, Belle was, and her own parents performed her exorcism. Jake tells Ciara that he’s been having flashes like dreams but they are happening more and more so he’s starting to think they are memories of Johnny with creepy glowing eyes. Ciara asks if he’s sure. Jake says it was the day that Johnny and Gabi pulled the power move at DiMera where he and Johnny fought and he ended up on the ground. Jake says he’s starting to piece together how he got there and he doesn’t know why his brain would make it up. Ciara suggests maybe it’s just his subconscious coming up with a reason to make Johnny the bad guy. Jake suggests Johnny was possessed and if he was, that means the Devil is still here.

Evan questions Allie planning to break him out. Allie says it will be hard to convince Ciara that he killed Ben if he’s stuck in here. Evan questions why Ciara would believe him when he already told her the same lie. Allie insists that she will take care of it. Evan agrees to be in and asks how they will pull it off. Allie says she has a lot of tricks up her sleeve. Evan points out that she hasn’t told him her name and asks who she is. Devil Allie responds that she goes by a lot of names and she’s more powerful than he could ever imagine which Evan questions. She decides to show him by snapping her fingers and turning out the lights. Evan is shocked and asks what the Hell. The Devil responds that now he’s catching on.

Shawn asks Belle if they can talk about this in private. Belle says there’s no point because he made his choice. Shawn argues that he always chooses her. Belle says it doesn’t feel that way. Shawn argues that he had to do this for the baby but they will make this work. Belle asks how when Jan Spears is living in their house. Shawn insists it’s only until the baby is born and she will be on bed rest the entire time. Belle questions trusting Jan when she tried to kill her more than once. Belle then takes her bag and storms out.

Susan insists to EJ that the letter was written by Andre and that he must have done something to Johnny. EJ assures her that Andre was dead and buried. Susan points out that the Devil owns his soul, so she thinks the Devil brought him back to hurt Johnny. EJ insists that Johnny is fine in Italy. Susan wants EJ to get him on the phone then so she can hear his voice but points out that he can’t. EJ says he left him a message right before she arrived so he will call back soon. Susan asks what if Andre has kidnapped Johnny to do Lucifer’s bidding. EJ asks if he’s a zombie. Susan continues on about her premonition but EJ feels she’s getting worked up over nothing. Susan argues that her grandson is not nothing. EJ tells her to go lie down in the guest room and when Johnny calls, he will come get her. EJ promises that Johnny is fine as he sends her upstairs.

Ciara informs Jake that Johnny is in Italy and apparently left without saying goodbye to anyone. Ciara says it’s killing her waiting around for answers. Jake asks if anyone else would know where Ben is. Ciara says she called Marlena and left a message but she hasn’t gotten back to her either. Jake suggests maybe Ben is in a session with Marlena and that’s why she hasn’t answered. Ciara says that’s possible so she will go to the hospital to check. Jake decides to stay here in case he comes back. Ciara thanks Jake. Jake assures that Ben is okay as Ciara then exits the apartment.

Andre urges Ben that the killer instinct is inside of him but Ben refuses, saying he’s not that person anymore and he can’t kill Johnny. Andre asks why not since unlike the innocent women he strangled, Johnny is arrogant and selfish like a true DiMera so some say he would deserve it. Andre tells Johnny that no one will miss him. Johnny asks Ben not to listen to Andre. Andre guarantees that a deal is a deal, even when it comes to the Devil. Johnny urges Ben not to trust him. Andre warns Ben that time is running out, so it’s now or never and Ciara’s life depends on it.

Shawn calls Belle, leaving a message that they can work this out and asking her to call him. Jan says she’s sorry but Shawn argues that Jan is loving every bit of this. Shawn says he’s going to track Belle down but Jan suggests giving her space or it will make things worse. Shawn warns Jan that she does not get to weigh in on his marriage ever. Jan says she was just trying to give him the female perspective. Jan suggests talking about something more pleasant and says the baby is craving pie, so she asks Shawn to get them some.

EJ calls Tony and says he doesn’t know why he asked because of course he didn’t write the letter. EJ adds that he knows Andre is dead but he knows how Susan gets. EJ wishes Andre luck with Anna and says to let him know if he can be of any help. EJ hangs up as Belle arrives and goes straight to pouring a drink which EJ notes is not a good sign. Belle says she’s just getting started. EJ guesses it’s Jan Spears and asks if Shawn went to visit her in prison. Belle confirms that he did and it will be his last trip to prison because he moved Jan in to her house.

Susan sneaks in to Johnny’s bedroom and finds his red suit jacket. She hugs it and thinks back to arguing with Johnny about him being The Devil. Susan tells herself that she was wrong since Belle was possessed and not Johnny.

Johnny encourages Ben that this is not him and that Andre is trying to corrupt his soul. Andre argues that Ben’s soul is already corrupted and they are all lost causes. Johnny disagrees, reminding Ben of how much progress Marlena said he had made and that he has a good heart. Johnny argues that Ben can’t repay Marlena by killing her grandson. Andre reminds Ben that his wife and child are in danger, so if he doesn’t get to them soon, he will lose them forever. Johnny insists that Andre is lying. Andre tells Ben he has to do this for Ciara or for their child. Andre hands Ben the necktie. Ben approaches Johnny as he begs him not to do this. Ben holds the tie to Johnny’s neck but declares that he can’t do this, because of his love for Ciara and since she saved him from this. Andre calls that unfortunate.

Jake has a beer at Ben and Ciara’s apartment until Evan shows up at the door. Jake asks if he can help him. Evan asks if Ciara is home. Jake says no as she just left. Evan says that’s okay and he’ll wait as he walks in. Jake doesn’t know who he is but tells him he will have to wait somewhere else. Evan claims that Ciara won’t mind as they are old friends. Jake then recognizes Evan as the punk who kept Ciara locked up, asking how he got out of prison. Evan responds that a new friend helped him out which Jake questions. Devil Allie then appears and hits Jake in the head from behind with an object, knocking him out. Allie tells Evan that it’s the second time she’s had to knock Jake out as he’s really becoming a pain in the ass. Evan asks what they are going to do with him. Allie says it wasn’t part of the plan but since he’s here, he may as well make himself useful.

Jan eats the pie that Shawn got her. Jan thinks it’s best that Belle did not stay because they both know stress is bad for the baby and that’s what they need to focus on because nothing is more important than their baby.

Belle tells EJ that she was ready to move home as she wanted to make it work. EJ says he’s so sorry but Jan knows how to get what she wants. Belle talks about Shawn still falling for it after all these years so she doesn’t understand him. EJ says he’s not saying Shawn did the right thing, but as a father, he gets why he would move heaven and earth to protect his child. Belle asks if something is going on with Johnny. EJ responds that he hasn’t heard from him since he left, so he would do anything to know he was safe and sound. Belle asks if he has a reason to believe he’s not. EJ says it’s probably nothing but Susan has it in her head that Johnny could be in danger.

Susan wonders if EJ was right about her psychic powers and decides she just needs some rest. Susan then lays down in the bed with Johnny’s coat and dreams about arguing with Johnny being the Devil where the Devil revealed himself to her and then made her lose her memory. Susan then wakes up in a panic.

Ben is chained back to the wall in the Crypt and prays for God to protect Ciara and their baby. Andre says that Ben could have done that himself but he made the wrong decision. Andre declares that since Ben refused to kill Johnny, the Devil has no need for him either. Johnny asks what he’s saying. Andre announces that since Ben decided to save Johnny’s life, he’s about to end Ben’s.

Ciara returns home and is shocked to find Evan inside. Evan claims he was just catching up with an old friend as he reveals The Devil has transformed Jake so that Ciara sees “Ben” now being unconscious on the floor. Ciara screams out for Ben.

Update written by Joseph

Chanel wakes up with a hangover, wondering what she did last night. Chanel then remembers kissing Tripp. Tripp then shows up at her door with a coffee. Chanel informs him that she was just thinking about him.

Devil Allie has Ben and Johnny chained up in the DiMera Crypt, creating a note from Ben. The Devil warns Johnny to worry about what’s going on with Chanel and Tripp because it looks like they had a rocking time last night, so it sucks to be him. Devil Allie then exits the crypt. Johnny calls out to Ben to wake him up. Ben freaks out realizing he is chained to the wall, questioning what’s going on and where he is.

Ciara wakes up and goes looking for Ben around their apartment. She sees the mug on the table and thinks back to the tea that Allie gave her and then she went straight to bed. Ciara then sees two other mugs next to it.

Shawn asks what Jan wants him to do. Jan argues that he’s an officer of the law so he can pull some strings or call in a favor to get her released. Shawn argues that they won’t let a nutjob with her record out of prison just because she’s pregnant. Jan argues that they are options other than letting her free, like house arrest. Shawn asks whose house, so Jan suggests his. Shawn says she cannot be serious but Jan assures that she is and she wants him to take her home with him.

Eric comes out of the Brady Pub and runs in to Belle. Belle hugs him and mentions that Marlena told her that he was in town. Belle says she’s excited and it’s good to see him. Eric says the same and mentions that Nicole is having breakfast with Rafe inside as they are together now. Belle mentions that she knew and guesses that’s why Eric is outside which he admits. Belle is glad to spend more time with him. Eric apologizes for not being there for her before when she was possessed.

Shawn tells Jan that this is not a simple request since she committed some serious crimes and tried to kill people. Shawn asks if she really thinks a sane judge is going to release her out in to the world to do more damage. Jan argues that she wouldn’t be released out in to the world, but in to the custody of her baby daddy. Shawn tells her not to call him that. Jan insists that if everyone knows she’s living with him, they will know that he’s taking extra special care of her and their baby. Jan argues that Shawn is a detective and was police commissioner, so if anyone can guarantee that she won’t be a danger to the public, it’s him. Shawn tells her it’s not going to happen as she is exactly where she belongs. Jan reminds him that the doctor said she needs to be on total bed rest. Shawn tells her to stay in bed then. Jan asks how that’s possible when every prisoner has to be up by six, in the cafeteria by seven, and back to their cells by eight. Shawn is sure they will make accommodations for her. Shawn offers to talk to the warden about her staying in the infirmary until the baby is born. Jan complains about the amount of diseases flying around the prison and admits she’s not exactly everyone’s favorite prisoner so she doesn’t trust these creeps to take care of her baby. Jan worries that she will end up back in her cell and asks if Shawn really wants to take that kind of a chance with his child’s life.

Belle tells Eric that it all happened really fast and is kind of still a blur, so she’s just grateful that John knew what to do. Belle mentions that she did a lot of terrible things like trying to break up Chad and Abigail plus Gabi and Jake. Eric assures that she is not responsible for any of that. Belle feels that she is but finds it strange that she doesn’t remember doing any of it. Belle says one minute she was at the DiMera Mansion talking to Johnny and then she was upstairs, tied to a bed, and everyone told her she had been possessed. Eric brings up that Marlena said after she was possessed, she had gaps in her memory. Belle says that’s what is strange because she didn’t lose any time at all.

Tripp and Chanel complain about their hangovers. Tripp presents Chanel with an electrolyte replacement drink as a hangover cure. Chanel is hesitant but Tripp insists that she drink it and it will help her forget last night ever happened.

Johnny explains to Ben that Allie is now possessed by the Devil and that Jake was right that Johnny was possessed since Christmas. Johnny adds that he doesn’t remember anything from Marlena’s exorcism until the Devil left him. Ben asks how the hell he got free. Johnny informs him that Allie saved him as she was talking to him, trying to reach out and telling him to fight the Devil so he did and he was winning, but then the Devil must have jumped from him in to his sister. Ben questions what the Devil would want with Allie. Johnny responds that he doesn’t think the Devil is interested in Allie at all as he thinks he wants what he always wanted. Ben realizes that’s Ciara and their baby.

Ciara questions the other tea mugs and wonders why she can’t remember if they were there last night. Allie then shows up at her door and says she brought breakfast, figuring her and Ben would still be tired. Ciara thanks her but notes that Ben is not here and she doesn’t know where he is as he wasn’t there when she woke up. Allie calls that weird. Ciara last remembers Ben taking her to bed after they drank tea. Ciara asks if Allie knows what happened after that. Allie recalls Ben putting Ciara to bed and then they had some tea while they talked about parenting and then she headed out soon after. Ciara calls it weird as she doesn’t remember Ben coming to bed. Allie notes that she was very tired but Ciara says she always wakes up when Ben comes to bed and gets out of bed. Ciara decides to call Ben but it goes straight to voicemail.

Ben tries to break his chains but Johnny warns that he’s going to hurt himself. Ben says he has to get to Ciara. Johnny says he’s tried but the chains are unbreakable. Ben complains about the Devil being after the woman he loves and his baby. Johnny complains that before that, the Devil went after the woman he loves and used him to do that. Ben asks if he’s talking about how he dumped her at a party. Johnny insists it wasn’t him, it was the Devil, and he wanted to make it stick so he called her and taunted her about it and now she hates him. Johnny understands he hurt Chanel in the worst way possible and now she’s off with Tripp. Ben asks how he knows that. Johnny explains that Devil Allie gave him his own private screening of Chanel and Tripp drinking together at the bar. Ben guesses Chanel was drowning her sorrows. Johnny assures that they did a lot more than that and could have even spent the night together.

Tripp informs Chanel that he came to apologize for last night. Chanel asks why and what he did. Tripp says he got drunk, kissed her, and took her home hoping to get her in bed. Chanel reminds him that she was drunk too and is pretty sure she was down to party. Chanel recalls that she led the idea and thinks they only didn’t go through with it because her mom stopped them. Tripp admits he’s kind of glad that she did because if they had gone through with it, they’d be doing it for all the wrong reasons like revenge. Tripp adds that he’s not even sure Johnny and Allie would care.

Eric questions Belle not remembering any of the things she did while possessed. Belle confirms that she only knows what people told her but she doesn’t feel like she lost her memory. Eric doesn’t understand. Belle talks about not having the same experience that Marlena described. Eric wonders if maybe the Devil didn’t have control yet. Belle says he would have had to in order to morph in to EJ or Jake. Belle adds that she never realized she was missing time. Eric wonders if the Devil was making her unaware it was happening and says all that matters is that she’s safe now. Eric hopes that she can put that chapter behind her and move on with her life. Belle wishes she could pretend none of this happened and just move on, but the Devil did so much damage and hurt so many people that it can’t be forgotten or repaired that easily, especially the relationships he wrecked and none more than her own marriage.

Jan tells Shawn that she’s not delusional as she knows how he feels about her, but she can live with that. Jan says no matter how much Shawn dislikes her, he would never take that out on an innocent child, especially not his own because that’s not who he is. Jan calls Shawn a good man and says that’s why she knows he would never want any harm to come to the child. Jan says being a mother made something in her switch because for the first time in her life, somebody is depending on her so she feels like she has purpose and she wants to do everything she can to protect the baby. Jan declares that if something happened in prison, she couldn’t live with that and asks if Shawn could. Jan asks Shawn to talk to the warden for their baby.

Eric tells Belle that Marlena told her about Shawn and Jan. Belle tells Eric that she’s staying with Marlena and John but Shawn wants her to go home. Belle admits she thought about it but they started discussing it and Jan called, so she left. Belle is sure Shawn went to the prison to talk to Jan. Belle thinks Eric will say that it’s Shawn’s baby so she should accept it because she loves him. Eric clarifies that he was going to say if Shawn has to be there for Jan because of the baby, it’s not because he loves her. Belle assures that she knows that but Jan being the mother of his child means Jan will be in their lives forever. Belle asks how to deal with that and how a marriage survives that.

Ben informs Johnny that Allie was in their apartment last night and brought over some tea. Ben recalls putting Ciara in bed and realizes that Allie drugged them both. Johnny confirms Ben was pretty out of it when Allie brought him in. Ben worries that Ciara must have woken up this morning wondering where she could have gone.

Ciara leaves a message for Ben to call her back when he gets it. Allie suggests he must just be busy. Ciara hopes so and decides she’s going to check the garage. Ciara thanks Allie for stopping by. Allie then pulls out the note that the Devil made and claims it must have fallen on the floor. She reads it to Ciara, saying it’s from Ben and that he woke up early and didn’t want to wake her and to have a good time with Allie. Ciara questions how Ben knew Allie would be there. Allie claims she told Ben last night that she would check on her. Allie then remembers that she has something else for her. Ciara says she didn’t have to bring her anything. Allie gives her a baby tuxedo that was Henry’s and mentions having a lot of clothes that he has outgrown, plus toys and bottles that she can have. Ciara calls that very thoughtful of her. Allie guesses she should’ve asked first and worries that she made it awkward but Ciara reassures her. Allie talks about her pregnancy being overwhelming and how she didn’t want to be a mom at first. Allie says seeing Ciara and Ben’s joy lets her see what she missed out on so she just wants to be part of it. Ciara tells Allie that she loves that she wants to be a part of it and they will be grateful for her to join them on this journey as they hug.

Chanel tells Tripp that she is the one who should be apologizing to him for stealing his girlfriend. Chanel says she was supposed to be his friend and broke the bro code. Chanel says regardless of how she felt about Allie, she was his girlfriend and she’s sorry for the way it happened. Chanel talks about how she was hurting because of what Johnny did to her and she’s ashamed that she wasn’t thinking about how hurt Tripp would be. Chanel says she knows now that was so wrong and she’s really sorry. Tripp says at the end of the day, Allie is the one who cheated on him. Tripp thanks Chanel for saying that though and says it means a lot.

Belle tells Eric that everyone keeps telling her that it’s not Shawn’s fault that he betrayed her but he lied to her for months and kept it from her. Eric says she has every right to be angry but says there’s no looking back. Eric wishes he had been more forgiving with Nicole instead of judging her so harshly as it caused him to lose her and his marriage which he doesn’t want to happen to Belle. Belle doesn’t want to lose Shawn but she doesn’t know if she’s ready to go home. Eric tells her that she can’t avoid him forever. Belle asks how to know when she’s ready. Eric tells her that she can’t find the answers by avoiding her husband, so the only way to make it through this mess is to go home and work this out together. Eric hugs Belle.

Shawn informs Jan that he just spoke to the warden and he’s not thrilled about letting a dangerous prisoner back in to the world. Jan asks if she’s really dangerous anymore. Shawn says that ultimately this would be left up to the judge who sentenced her but apparently they have extreme overcrowding. Shawn reveals that if she were to be released in to his custody, it would be solving the warden’s problem. Shawn says he guaranteed that he would be responsible for her. Jan asks if that means yes. Shawn confirms that the judge signed off so it is a yes as Jan excitedly hugs him. Shawn puts an ankle monitor on Jan and warns her that if she tries to leave the house without permission, she will be swarmed by unfriendly cops. Jan remarks that she just hopes Belle will be okay with this. Shawn informs her that she won’t have to worry about Belle because she’s staying at her mom’s. Jan asks if she moved out. Shawn says for now and confirms it’s because of her. Jan apologizes and says she knows it’s her fault and that Shawn feels guilty for not telling Belle they slept together. Shawn declares that he needs to hold himself accountable for his actions. Jan insists that she is sorry. Shawn tells her to stop pretending she cares about his marriage. Jan says she cares about him and bringing the baby in to a warm, loving environment. Jan declares that for now it will just be the three of them.

Belle agrees with Eric that she won’t solve any of her problems by running from them, so she will go get her stuff from Marlena’s. Eric tells her that he’s here for her, whatever she needs. Belle thanks him and says he always knows what to say. Belle adds that if Eric doesn’t want to deal with Nicole and Rafe, he can come help her. Eric says he will take his own advice as he and Nicole are divorced so she moved on with her life and he needs to move on with his.

Allie gives Ciara more baby clothes and talks about all the gifts the baby will get. Allie offers to help Ciara with a registry. Ciara says she’s still really worried about Ben, so she’s going to the gargage to check on him. Allie reminds her that she saw the note. Ciara knows it seems silly but she feels like she really needs to see Ben. Ciara thanks Allie for everything and goes to her room. The Devil remarks that Ciara is stubborn and won’t rest until she finds Ben, so he’ll have to do something a little more drastic.

Ben asks Johnny what if Ciara thinks he just left her and the baby because of the Devil. Ben argues that they have to do something because the Devil is after his wife and baby. Johnny says he’s sorry but he’s tried everything. Ben brings up the Crypt being on Johnny’s family property and asks if anybody ever comes back here. Johnny says sometimes they pay respects to dead relatives. Ben asks how often and when he last came in. Johnny says he came last Halloween to scout locations for his movie and it turned out that John was locked up here but he didn’t find him because the Devil stopped him. Johnny mentions hearing voices the other day and trying to yell for help but nobody heard him. Ben tries screaming for help but Johnny says he’s wasting his time. Ben asks if he has a better idea, so they try screaming together.

Shawn sets up at home when Belle comes in with her bag, surprising him. Belle tells him that she’s been thinking about everything, so she wanted to come home. Jan then comes in and says she knows she should be resting. Jan then says what a surprise to seeing Belle. Belle responds that she could say the same thing and questions what the hell Jan is doing here. Jan reveals that she’s moving in, shocking Belle.

Chanel tells Tripp that she feels cured of her hangover and now she’s hungry. Tripp says he is too so they exit together.

Ciara goes to the Brady Pub and is surprised to see Eric. They hug and talk about how good it is to see each other. Ciara says she was looking for Clyde, hoping he could tell her where Ben is. Eric asks if something is wrong. Ciara hopes not but says she woke up this morning and Ben was gone with a note that he was at work but she just drove by the garage and he was nowhere to be found.

Devil Allie goes to prison to visit Evan Frears aka Christian Maddox, the son of Orpheus, who held Ciara prisoner last year. Allie claims to be a big fan of his work. Christian asks who the hell she is. She responds that she’s his new best friend because she’s about to offer him a chance at revenge on Ben Weston. He tells her that she has his attention. She says they have so much to talk about.

Ben and Johnny continue screaming for help. Ben argues that sooner or later someone will walk by but Johnny says it’s no use. They then hear noise outside. Johnny declares that someone is outside so they are saved as someone then breaks open the door.

Devil Allie tells Christian that she is going to call him Evan because she’s not a fan of Christian. She says they have a lot in common such as being bisexual. He tells her to get to the part where she helps him get revenge on Ben. She says that’s the other thing they have in common, hating Ben. Evan declares Ben is the reason he lost everything and the reason he’s in here. Allie talks about Ben ruining Evan’s plans by rescuing Ciara, otherwise he’d be out living his best life but instead he’s in here while Ben and Ciara are happily married. She declares that now Ben is getting in her way and she just can’t have that, so that’s where he comes in.

Jake has a nightmare about fighting Devil Johnny and then wakes up in a panic. Ava wakes up next to him and asks if he’s okay.

Rafe works in his office at the police station and complains about being stuck with all the paper work like he has nothing better to do than stay here all night. Nicole arrives and questions how the hell all the charges against Ava were dropped.

Eric works the bar at the Brady Pub. Marlena arrives and says she had to see for herself that he was really back as they hug. Eric feels bad that he just went back to Africa so soon instead of sticking around and making sure she fully recovered. Marlena assures that she’s fine and that Eric saved her soul and set her free.

Gabi sits at her desk at DiMera Enterprises, reading an article in The Intruder about Ava going free. EJ arrives and asks if she’s having a rough day at the office. Gabi sees EJ and questions if Melinda is just letting everybody out of jail. EJ notes that she seems surprised as he’s sure she would have heard about his exoneration by now. Gabi guesses she blocked it out. EJ informs Gabi that he’s innocent as it turned out the Devil used Belle to set him up.

Belle goes to the police station and sees Shawn. Shawn thanks her for coming to see him but Belle clarifies that she came to see a client. Shawn asks if she will give him a few minutes to make his case first to try and convince her that she should come home. Shawn calls the situation Jan challenging and a total nightmare. Shawn says he misses Belle and he knows she misses him too. Belle argues that Shawn slept with a homicidal maniac whose only mission in life was to drive them apart and now she is having his baby. Shawn says he’s so sorry. Belle brings up Shawn impregnating Jan four months ago on Christmas Eve/their wedding anniversary and allowed her to believe that she interrupted them. Shawn complains that he believed Jan was Belle. Belle continues on that he didn’t confide in her what happened. Shawn explains that he knew it would hurt her and traumatize her, so he didn’t want to do that to her. Belle asks if it never occurred to him that Jan could get pregnant. Shawn argues that he thought it was Belle so it never occurred to him. Belle thinks maybe it should have which Shawn admits. Shawn says he was ashamed and asks what telling her would have done. Belle complains that this entire thing could have been avoided if Jan took the morning after pill. Shawn argues that Jan would have never agreed to that but Belle says she could have gotten a court order because it was sexual assault. Shawn apologizes for being so clueless but he doesn’t have a law degree so the thought never crossed his mind. Shawn says he knew he made the biggest mistake of his life and that’s been compounded by Jan being pregnant. Shawn assures Belle that this is a total nightmare for him and he can’t think of anything that would make him more miserable. Belle responds that she’s just shocked and disappointed that months went by without him telling her the truth and that she had to find out from Jan showing her. Shawn says she has every right to be angry but he can’t change the past or what the Devil did. Shawn promises Belle that he will spend the rest of his life making it up to her. Belle asks how he will do that. Shawn responds that he will prove and show her that she is the most important thing in the world to him. Shawn knows he can do it if she gives him a chance.

Eric is relieved that Marlena is okay but he’s disappointed himself as he really thought he got rid of the Devil for good but he let him jump in to Belle. Marlena argues that Satan is a master of deception.

Gabi asks EJ if she’s supposed to feel sorry for him that the Devil set him up. EJ responds that he didn’t come for her sympathy, but for his job. Gabi points out that the position has been filled and she told her assistant that she was not to be disturbed. EJ brings up recently being co-CEO. Gabi reminds him that when the evidence showed he kidnapped Sami, Mr. Shin fired him. EJ points out that now they both know Satan planted the evidence, so if not for him, he wouldn’t have been removed from his position and Satan is the only reason that Gabi is in that chair. Gabi argues that he can blame the Devil all he wants but the truth is, Johnny is the one who got her in to the chair. Gabi declares that Johnny got her in to this position and then tried to get her in to his bed.

Ava asks Jake again if he is okay. Jake says he just had a nightmare. Ava guesses it was pretty bad. Jake claims he’s fine. Ava puts her hand on his chest and notes that his heart is racing, so he doesn’t seem fine. Ava apologizes if she made things weird. Jake asks if she means weirder than sleeping together without actually sleeping together. Ava tells Jake that she is his friend, so if he wants to tell her about his nightmare, she is happy to listen. Jake claims he can’t remember and gets up to go shower.

Belle asks Shawn what if she gives him another chance. Shawn says he will follow her lead and do whatever she wants. Shawn knows he made a huge mistake and hates that he hurt her but he doesn’t want this to destroy their marriage. Shawn wants to figure this out with her and asks what she wants. Belle responds that she doesn’t want Jan Spears to be part of her life in any way. Shawn assures that she won’t have to worry about that. Belle argues that if the baby is in his life, and he is in her life, then Jan is in her life. Belle thinks it is best if she steers clear since Jan has tried to kill her. Shawn argues that they don’t know what Jan will do and maybe motherhood will calm her down. Shawn points out that he hasn’t heard from Jan once since she told him about the baby. Shawn then gets a call from the prison.

Nicole complains to Rafe about Melinda letting Ava walk. Rafe argues that Melinda just did it and ordered him to arrest Gwen which led to his pile of paper work which is why he couldn’t see Nicole last night. Nicole asks if Rafe could take a break. Rafe says he’d love that and suggests breakfast at the Pub. Nicole stops and remembers seeing Eric working at the Pub.

Eric apologizes to Marlena for not coming back sooner to help with Belle since he was off the grid. Marlena says he doesn’t have to apologize as they all pulled together and saved Belle. Eric questions no one being aware that Belle was possessed. Marlena mentions that Susan Banks thought the Devil got in to Belle, but Ben thought that it was Johnny.

EJ questions Gabi about Johnny trying to seduce her. Gabi explains that she and Jake had big plans and Johnny did too, so she suggested they all work together. EJ guesses Gabi wanted to use Johnny’s shares to take over the company. Gabi says she’s all about business but Johnny wanted more and kept pushing her to ditch Jake, to team up with him in more ways than one. Gabi tells EJ that she refused until she found out Jake was stabbing her in the back, but now they know it wasn’t Jake, it was Satan. Gabi says she wanted to confront Jake about double crossing her but Johnny stopped her and convinced her to ambush Jake at the meeting, to vote Chad out and her in. EJ questions it being Johnny’s idea to make Gabi CEO. Gabi says it was more about the power grab and notes how quick Johnny was to throw EJ under the bus. Gabi adds that afterwards, Johnny wanted to take their relationship to the next level but she found out that Jake didn’t betray her and she tried to fix it. Gabi adds that EJ doesn’t have to take her word for it, as she could ask his son. EJ responds that he wishes he could, but Johnny is gone. EJ tells Gabi that Johnny is in Italy doing some soul searching. Gabi hopes that works out for him. Gabi tells EJ that he’s all caught up now so he can see himself out since she has an international corporation to run. EJ reminds Gabi how well that they used to get along. Gabi asks if he means that was before he booted Jake out of the family business. EJ points out that Gabi and Jake are through, so he asks Gabi to step aside and let him have his job back but Gabi says no. EJ suggests she remember that he’s not as naïve as his son then and he will always respect his father’s legacy, so he won’t let it be run in to the ground by an interloper. EJ warns Gabi not to get too comfortable in that chair as it won’t be long before he puts her in her place and reclaims his. Gabi asks if that’s a threat. EJ calls it a promise and then walks out of the office.

Nicole tells Rafe that there is something he should know before they go to the Pub. Ava walks in and jokes about not interrupting if they were about to go at it on the desk. Rafe asks Ava what the hell she wants.

Gabi goes back to her desk and complains about who is more insufferable, Ava or EJ. Gabi decides she will forget them since Ava is a loser and EJ is unemployed while she is CEO. There’s a knock on the door, so Gabi complains that she’s not supposed to be disturbed, but it’s Jake who enters the office.

Eric asks Marlena if Johnny was possessed. Marlena explains that is what Ben originally thought. Eric asks if it was true since Johnny was in the room for Marlena’s exorcism. Marlena says that Belle as Satan tried to choke her to death but Johnny broke it up. Eric asks if Belle is okay. Marlena says physically she is okay and the Devil is gone, but when he was there, something happened that absolutely devastated Belle..

Jan is informed that Shawn refused her call. Jan complains that Shawn is the father of her child so he can’t just blow her off. Jan asks to call Shawn again and for him to be told that it’s an emergency.

Belle remarks that Shawn should have taken the call from his baby mama and says this is how it’s going to be from now on, when Jan calls he has to talk to her. Shawn argues that he’s taking to Belle now about saving their marriage, so Jan can wait. Shawn gets another call from the prison so Belle grabs his phone and accepts the charges. Belle tells Shawn to talk to Jan because she has nothing left to say. Shawn tries to argue but Belle says she will be at her parents’ and walks out of the station. Shawn asks Jan what she wants. Jan asks if that’s any way to talk to the mother of his child and guesses he’s been talking to Belle. Shawn threatens to hang up but Jan warns him not to if he cares about the life of their unborn child.

Eric is shocked to hear that Jan Spears is pregnant with Shawn’s child. Marlena adds that she feels responsible. Eric argues that Belle and Shawn can’t blame Marlena for the Devil’s work. Marlena explains that Belle is upset with Shawn for not telling her that he slept with Jan. Eric feels he should go check on Belle to see if there’s anything he can do. Marlena is sure Belle would love to hear from him. Marlena asks if he’s bumped in to anybody else since coming back to town. Eric confirms that Nicole stopped by and they talked for a bit. Marlena asks how that felt. Eric acknowledges that he and Nicole are divorced, while he’s committed to the priesthood and she’s committed to somebody else.

Rafe tells Ava that the good thing about the charges being dropped is that he doesn’t have to see her around here anymore. Ava says she didn’t come to see him, she came to see Gwen. Nicole asks why since Ava sold Gwen out. Ava argues that she did what she had to do to save herself but she took no pleasure in it and she came to apologize. Nicole questions believing her making amends with Gwen when she hasn’t even apologized to Rafe setting him up. Ava argues that Gwen didn’t have sex with her best friend or her boyfriend behind her back like some other people she knows. Nicole argues that Rafe didn’t deserve to go to prison and Ava doesn’t deserve to be free. Ava asks who she speaks to about seeing Gwen. Rafe agrees to let Gwen know that Ava wants to talk to her. Rafe tells Nicole that it won’t take long so he’ll meet her at the Pub. Nicole kisses Rafe and then exits. Ava tells Rafe that she will wait here while he goes to check with Gwen but Rafe refuses to leave her in his office and orders her to get out.

Gabi asks what Jake is doing here. Jake says he needed to talk to her. Gabi argues that she already knows how his new girlfriend Ava threw his old girlfriend Gwen under the bus and framed her brother. Jake clarifies that Ava is not his girlfriend, but even if she was, it’s not Gabi’s business. Gabi asks if Jake is okay with Ava throwing Gwen under the bus to save her own guilty ass. Jake argues that Gwen put Abigail and her family through Hell so he won’t lose sleep over that, but he’s not here to talk about Gwen or Ava, but about The Devil.

Shawn goes to see Jan at the prison and tells her that she has one minute. Jan complains about him being so cold to her when she’s really vulnerable. Shawn warns that she has 30 seconds. Jan argues that she knows he cares about their baby as much as she does. Jan starts crying that she’s really scared. Shawn tells her to skip the tears and games and just cut to the chase to tell him what the hell she wants.

Belle goes to the DiMera Mansion and tells EJ that she got his text and he said it was important. EJ informs her that he needs her help to take DiMera back from Gabi. Belle reminds him that she is DiMera’s general counsel, so Gabi is her boss. EJ says that’s only until she advises him on how to get rid of her. Belle asks why EJ would take her advice since he ignores it all the time. Belle reminds EJ that she told him not to hand over his shares to Johnny but he did it anyway and that’s how Gabi became CEO. EJ clarifies that Gabi said it was Johnny’s idea that she run the company. Belle points out that EJ handed Johnny all the power. EJ repeats that at the time, he trusted his son and never imagined he would undermine him. Belle argues that he should have trusted his attorney more. EJ agrees that he should not have been so dismissive, but promises to listen from now on. Belle appreciates that but says she still can’t advise him on this. Off the record, Belle suggests that EJ get Johnny to sign a document handing over his shares and then he can form a voting block to remove Gabi and put himself back in. EJ says there is just one problem with that strategy as Johnny has left town to Italy to find himself. Belle guesses he must first find Johnny to get his signature and that’s all she is going to say about it. EJ knows she’s heard all about him, so he asks how she is doing. Belle says that’s not a question she can answer in just a few words.

Jan claims she’s not trying to manipulate Shawn as she’s been cooperative and completely honest since telling him about their baby. Jan says that’s why when she learned something about their child today, she thought he would want to know immediately. Shawn says he’s here so she can tell him. Jan explains that she had a more thorough exam and she’s afraid there’s some bad news as she has a medical condition with a long, complicated name. Shawn doesn’t buy it but Jan says what she has is serious and she needs to be on bed rest for the remainder of her pregnancy. Shawn asks what that has to do with him. Jan complains that nobody can rest in prison, so he needs to get her released immediately for the sake of their baby.

Gabi questions Jake wanting to talk about the Devil and asks if he means his girlfriend. Jake repeats that Ava is just his roommate and it’s none of her business, but he needs help and Gabi is the only person he can turn to. Gabi asks what he needs help with. Jake says it’s about a dream that feels more like a memory. Jake reminds Gabi that she left him alone in the conference room at DiMera with Johnny, but in his dream, Johnny seemed possessed with the freaky voice and glowing eyes. Gabi guesses Jake hit his head pretty hard because when she got back, Jake was out cold. Gabi recalls Johnny saying that Jake attacked him. Jake doesn’t remember that, but in his dream, he punched the Devil. Gabi says what she remembers from that day is that she got this job and lost Jake. Jake decides this was a mistake and apologizes for bothering her. Gabi stops him and says they both know the Devil and Johnny broke them up. Gabi asks if he’s thinking they are one in the same.

Rafe informs Ava that Gwen doesn’t want to see her. Ava guesses that she’s holding a grudge. Rafe doesn’t want to see Ava either, so he tells her to get out and not come back. Ava argues that she’s a free woman so she can go where ever she damn well pleases. Rafe warns that Ava got away this time, but if she thinks about hurting him or Nicole, she won’t have to worry about speaking with Gwen because she’ll be in the same cell with her in prison. Ava mocks him playing bad cop and says he never showed her this side when they were dating because if he had, they’d probably still be together. Ava then walks out of the station.

Eric mentions Nicole being with Rafe now. Marlena is surprised she told him and wants to know that Eric is okay. Eric assures he’s fine, acknowledging that Nicole was his first love so they will obviously have a connection but they realized they are two different people who want two very different lives. Marlena asks if seeing Nicole now is just like seeing an old friend. Eric admits his heart skipped a beat when he saw Nicole so she will still have that power over him. Nicole then enters the Pub and sees them.

Jake tells Gabi that there was a time when he, Ben, and Ciara thought Johnny was possessed but it turned out the Devil was in Belle and Johnny was just a jerk. Gabi asks what about his dream since it must mean something for him to come ask for her help. Jake calls it a mistake and repeats that he’s sorry to bother her. Jake tells Gabi to get back to running DiMera all by herself. Gabi blames living with Ava for giving him nightmares. Jake then reveals that he and Ava are now sharing the bed. Gabi gets upset but Jake assures that nothing happened and they stayed on their sides of the bed. Jake then exits the office. Gabi remarks that it won’t last.

Marlena and Nicole greet each other. Marlena says she has to get going and tells Eric that she will be in touch, so she exits the Pub. Nicole informs Eric that Rafe is meeting her here for breakfast at his suggestion. Eric tells her that she doesn’t have to explain. Nicole apologizes since this is a little strange. Eric points out that it wasn’t strange yesterday. Nicole says now Rafe will be walking through the door. Eric assures Nicole that seeing her happy will never make him uncomfortable as he’s truly happy that she’s met someone who will put her first and can give her their whole heart. Eric holds Nicole’s hands and tells her that she deserves that as Rafe walks in to the Pub, surprised to see Eric with Nicole.

Belle informs EJ that she ran in to Shawn at the police station and he wants her to come back home. EJ asks what she wants. Belle cries that she wants to go back in time to stop Shawn from sleeping with Jan so she wouldn’t be carrying his baby. EJ wishes he could help her with that. Belle wishes she could do what EJ did to Sami when he found out she cheated with Lucas. EJ points out that he banished Sami from his life. Belle cries that she wants to banish all of this and erase it forever but she can’t because she loves Shawn. EJ hugs Belle as she cries.

Shawn informs Jan that he just spoke to the prison doctor. Jan guesses she backed up what she said and tells Shawn that she told him that she wasn’t making it up. Jan warns Shawn that if she stays in prison, their child will not survive.

Jake returns home and thinks back to his nightmare about Devil Johnny. Ava asks if he’s still shaken up about his nightmare but Jake claims he’s fine.

Gabi declares that she will get Ava out of Jake’s bed if it’s the last thing she does.

Rafe greets Eric and they hug. Rafe asks when Eric got in to town. Eric says it was yesterday and questions Nicole not telling him. Nicole explains that they didn’t see each other last night and she tried to tell him this morning but they were interrupted. Nicole informs Rafe that she and Eric ran in to each other yesterday morning. Rafe says it’s great and welcomes Eric back, asking how long he’s here for. Eric says it’s just a visit and mentions that Nicole told him about her and Rafe, so he wishes them both happiness.

Belle tells EJ that she feels like she’s never going to be happy again. EJ encourages that she is smart and strong, so she will find a way to make the best of all of it. Belle asks how when Jan is crazy, heartless, and is now pregnant with her husband’s baby. EJ says if Belle wants her marriage to work then it will. EJ believes in Belle and urges her to believe in herself.

Shawn asks what Jan wants him to do. Jan argues that he’s an officer of the law so he can pull some strings or call in a favor to get her released. Shawn argues that they won’t let a nutjob with her record out of prison just because she’s pregnant. Jan argues that they are options other than letting her free, like house arrest. Shawn asks whose house, so Jan suggests his.

Update written by Joseph

In Eli’s hospital room, Beth informs Lani that there is something that she needs to tell her. Beth thinks back to TR warning her to keep her mouth shut. Lani then asks if she’s okay. Beth tells Lani that she found out something tonight that Lani deserves to know.

Paulina asks what TR wants to prove to her. TR says he’s not the man he was back then and he’ll never hurt her again. TR asks Paulina for another chance and then they kiss.

Johnny remains chained up in the DiMera Crypt where he’s forced to watch the screen that the Devil created, showing Tripp and Chanel kissing at the Bistro. Tripp says he got Chanel’s mind off Johnny and Allie. They continue kissing as Johnny is furious.

Devil Allie has Ben drink the tea that she drugged. Ben talks about it being relaxing for his anxiety. Allie brings up how Ben was initially scared to have a baby because of his genes. Ben says he’s grateful that Marlena set him straight. Allie remarks that Ben obviously had nothing to worry about as the baby is going to be absolutely perfect..

TR tells Paulina how long he’s wanted to be with her like this again, like no time has passed at all. Paulina admits that he makes her feel like a young woman swept off her feet. TR points out that the twins are asleep and Chanel is out, so maybe he could sweep her off her feet again tonight.

Tripp and Chanel laugh together about being wasted and forgetting Johnny and Allie as they continue kissing. Johnny remains forced to watch. The waiter comes over and asks if they want to get a room. Chanel responds that it’s not a bad idea while Johnny argues having to watch.

Allie encourages that Ben and Ciara will be the best parents. Ben says he’s sorry but he suddenly feels sleepy. Allie says she will get going and let him sleep then. Allie shows Ben pictures of baby items they could have that belonged to Henry. Allie shows Ben a photo of a baby devil costume and says it’s her favorite which Ben questions. Allie calls it baby’s first Halloween and remarks that their little guy will be the most handsome devil…

Lani asks Beth what she deserves to know but Julie arrives, interrupting them. Julie says she didn’t know anyone else was there. Lani introduces Julie and Beth. Julie asks if Beth is a friend of Eli’s. Lani explains that Beth used to date TR. Julie asks what she is doing here. Lani informs Julie that Beth brought flowers. Beth explains that she met with Eli at the police station right before he went to the park, so she was probably the last person to see him before he got shot. Julie recalls being told that Eli was questioning her about TR and his background and that Beth confirmed TR had turned his life around. Julie asks if she has that right.

TR tells Paulina that he will make her a drink. Paulina stops him and says she’d love for him to sweep her off her feet again, but not tonight and not yet. TR questions if that’s because of Abe.

Abe goes to the Brady Pub and finds Kate working behind the counter. Abe didn’t know Kate was working at the Pub again. Kate explains that she’s just helping Roman out because she has a lot of free time on her hands. Abe doesn’t suppose she’d be interested in coming back to the mayor’s office. Kate thinks he’s fine without her. Abe is not so sure and then orders a double gin and tonic. Kate notes that it sounds serious. Abe responds that it’s just one of those days. Kate points out that she’s not an official bartender but she can listen if he wants to talk.

Johnny continues being forced to watch as Tripp suggests he and Chanel order another round of drinks. Johnny is hopeful that they don’t leave together. Tripp tries to order another round but the waiter decides they’ve had enough and he will call them a cab. Chanel guesses it’s destiny then and asks if they are going to her place or his.

Ben questions Allie dressing Henry up like the Devil for Halloween. Allie says it was adorable. Ben doesn’t remember that and gets weakened. Allie asks if he’s okay. Ben thinks there’s something in the tea. Allie claims it was just tea leaves from England. Ben sees an evil face in the bottom of his cup as Allie asks if he’s alright.

Abe tells Kate that love can be tricky. Abe explains to Kate how he had to bring Jules’ pacifier to Paulina and it looked like they settled in to a new normal as friendly co-grandparents and that’s all, but then Paulina kissed him and it rattled him, but he wishes it hadn’t. Kate asks Abe if he still has feelings for Paulina. Abe responds that he forgave Paulina for what she did but questions how he could ever trust her. Kate thinks he could find a way. Abe understands why Paulina lied to cover up Lani’s birth, but it wasn’t the first time, and he knows if he got involved with her again, then it wouldn’t be the last.

TR urges Paulina not to let Abe get her down on herself. TR argues that Abe doesn’t appreciate her the way he does. Paulina brings up how he used to appreciate her in the beginning and says it was the best feeling in the world, but along with that he had to be the center of her universe. TR says he was a kid. Paulina says she was naïve and it happened so fast with them. TR reminds her that he’s apologized for that. Paulina mentions that she forgave him for that but it’s not so easy to forget. TR asks if she’s trying to let him down gently. Paulina responds that she’s glad he is sober and that he’s here, but she wants to take things nice and slow. Paulina asks if he can understand that. TR clenches his fist behind the couch, but says he can understand. TR declares that he loves Paulina but he will be patient because she is worth it. TR tells her that whenever she’s ready, he will be waiting.

Tripp and Chanel talk about them her living with her mom and him living with his dad. Chanel decides on her place since Paulina will probably be tired from running after the twins all day. Tripp doesn’t know, so Chanel asks if he’d rather go home alone but Tripp says definitely not. Johnny screams that he loves Chanel and wishes she wouldn’t do this. Tripp and Chanel then exit the Bistro together.

Ben tells Allie that he must be seeing things. Allie offers to get him more tea but Ben says no as he’s done. Allie asks if Ben and Ciara are thinking about baby names. Devil Allie remarks that she’s always loved the name “Damien” and says you don’t hear it much anymore because of that damn movie. Ben tells her that something is wrong. The Devil then informs Ben that he’s not Allie as her eyes turn yellow.

Lani confirms to Julie that Beth told Eli that TR was clean and sober for their entire relationship. TR then walks in and asks what Beth is doing there. Julie points out that Beth brought Eli flowers. Beth decides she’s intruded on their family time enough, so she wishes Lani and Eli the best. Beth then exits the room. Lani brings up that Beth said she had something to tell her, but guesses it wasn’t that important.

Abe tells Kate that the lies Paulina told shook him to his core. Abe thought Paulina made Kate’s blood boil. Kate responds that she’s come to appreciate Paulina after a conversation they had a while back, the same day that Abe told Paulina that he could forgive her but didn’t think he could ever trust her again. Abe questions Paulina confiding in Kate. Kate confirms that Paulina told her everything about her story and her suffering, so she understood why Paulina lied to everybody. Kate says she was sorry for judging Paulina without knowing the facts. Kate hopes that Abe will give Paulina another chance because they obviously have feelings for each other and she remembers when Paulina made Abe a very happy man.

Paulina sits alone at home now and thinks back to kissing Abe and then to kissing TR. Chanel and Tripp then come in drunk. Chanel thought Paulina would be in bed. Paulina says she’s wrong and questions what’s going on here. Chanel tries to say goodnight and says they are just going to her room but Paulina says the hell they are.

Ben realizes Allie is the Devil and that the Devil drugged him. The Devil reminds Ben that he was after his baby and he still is.

TR asks how Eli is doing. Lani tells him that he’s the same. TR says he’s sorry but encourages her to hang in there and she’ll get her miracle. TR asks about Beth wanting to tell Lani something. Lani says she doesn’t know but Beth just said she found out something today that she thought she should know. TR finds it strange that she didn’t say what it was. Lani guesses it wasn’t that important if she left without telling her. Julie notes that Beth was distracted by TR coming in and guesses their relationship didn’t end well. TR questions why she would say that.

Abe tells Kate that when he went to Paulina’s, she was expecting TR since he promised to help with the twins but didn’t show. Kate thought she was terrified of him. Abe explains that she was when he first came to town, but he’s using the crisis with Eli since Paulina is so vulnerable. Abe thinks TR sees the opportunity to be there. Kate guesses TR swears that he turned his life around which Abe confirms. Kate asks if Abe believes it. Abe says it doesn’t matter what he believes because Paulina does and that’s what matters.

Paulina declares that Chanel and Tripp are not going in to Chanel’s bedroom. Chanel argues that she owns her own business and makes her own way so she can do whatever she wants. Paulina says not under her roof and while they are both drunk. Paulina refuses to let them try to pay back Johnny and Allie when they just would hurt themselves more in the process. Chanel complains that they just want to have fun. Paulina says they might just be looking for comfort but it would be cold in the morning.

The Devil tells Ben that he has big plans for his baby boy, but he needs Ben out of his way. Ben mentions Ciara. The Devil says she is sound asleep as he didn’t poison her since she is the vessel and he would not hurt the baby. Ben tries to get up, but collapses. The Devil declares that it’s curtains for Ben Weston.

Julie tells TR that it’s been her experience when a relationship ends, things are not going swimmingly. Julie adds that when TR showed up, Beth couldn’t get out of there fast enough. Lani suggests she could have somewhere to be. TR gives Lani pastries from the bakery. Julie comments on Eli’s hospital room having unexpected visitors. TR retorts that Eli is loved by a lot of people. TR assures that he won’t stay as he has a meeting. Julie asks for a moment of his time before he goes. TR asks what is on her mind. Julie points out that TR has been spending a lot of time with Lani and the twins. TR claims he’s just doing his best to lend a hand. Julie is sure Lani appreciates it but warns that those are her great grandbabies too. Julie knows that TR was a grave danger to Paulina and Lani in the past. Julie hopes that it’s all true that he’s really turned in to a new man, but if not and he hurts anybody that she loves, he will have her to deal with. TR says he understands loud and clear. TR assures that she has nothing to worry about and tells her to have a good evening as he then exits the room.

Paulina tells Chanel that she just told her the other day that she wanted a break from relationships. Paulina brings up Tripp reading Chanel the riot act about her relationship with Allie. Tripp admits he feels bad about that. Paulina questions this being how he says sorry. Paulina instructs Tripp to go home and sleep it off. Paulina decides that she will get Chanel some water and call Tripp a cab. Chanel hopes Tripp isn’t upset but she thinks Paulina is right. Tripp says he won’t remember this tomorrow but he’s glad they didn’t screw things up between them, so they can still be friends. Chanel says she would like to still be friends.

The Devil visits Johnny in the DiMera Crypt and asks how the show was. Johnny responds that Chanel and Tripp got wasted, were all over each other at the bar, and then they left together. The Devil asks if he wants to watch them hop in bed. Johnny says he doesn’t want to see that. Johnny asks what the Devil did to Ben. He responds that he did exactly as he promised and dealt with Ben Weston once and for all. Johnny asks what that means. The Devil calls it good news since Johnny won’t be alone anymore as he’s getting a crypt mate. Johnny asks if he didn’t kill Ben then. The Devil points out that no one else alive is in crypts and he’s not sure how much longer Johnny will be living either…

Chanel apologizes to Tripp for being a mess. Tripp says they were a mess together. Chanel talks about pretending to be cool and confident but it really hurts that Johnny went halfway around the world to get away from her. Tripp says if that’s really why Johnny left, then he’s an idiot. They joke about not remembering this in the morning. Paulina comes over with waters and tells Tripp that his cab is there. Tripp apologizes to her. Paulina tells him to sleep it off. Tripp thanks her for making him feel welcome. Chanel then walks Tripp out. Paulina gets a text from TR, wishing her sweet dreams and saying that he will be dreaming of her.

Kate asks if Abe really thinks Paulina would take TR back. Abe says he doesn’t know but she seems to be giving him a chance. Kate says that’s actually not surprising at all since that’s how abusive relationships work. Abe says he’s aware but it’s not easy to watch. Kate declares that if Paulina does take TR back, she feels it won’t end well and she’s going to need someone there to pick up the pieces.

Julie asks Lani if she came on to strong with TR. Lani says she loves Julie being direct and fierce. Julie wonders what Beth wanted to tell Lani. Lani is sure if it was that big of a deal, she will reach out again.

TR goes to Beth’s room at the Salem Inn. TR knocks on the door, saying he knows it’s late but he really needs to talk to her. Beth answers the door and asks what he wants. TR questions what she was doing at the hospital with Lani. Beth assures that she didn’t say anything. TR argues that she was going to. TR thought they had an agreement and that he could trust her, but if he can’t, they are going to have to find some other way to make sure she keeps their little secret. Beth says it’s late and tries to shut the door but he stops her and demands she not shut him out. Beth asks what he’s going to do. TR declares that he’s going to do what he should have done in the first place. TR slams the door shut as Beth screams.

The Devil chains Ben to the wall in the Crypt and tells Johnny that Ben is not dead yet. Ben wakes up and calls out for Ciara. The Devil tells Ben that Ciara isn’t there, but Johnny is, so they can keep each other company while he goes to keep Ciara company and their baby too.

Update written by Joseph

Ben and Ciara sit together at home. Ciara comments on them having some alone time until Clyde comes home with balloons for the baby, feeling he had to do something to celebrate them having a baby boy. Clyde then gives his suggestion for a baby name and asks what they think about Clyde Benjamin Weston Jr.

Lani sits at Eli’s side in his hospital room. Lani cries about the kids missing Eli and pleads with him to wake up because she doesn’t know how to go on without him. Tripp then appears in the room and offers her a tissue.

Paulina sits at home with Eli and Lani’s twins, trying to get them to sleep and to stop crying. Paulina tries calling T.R. but it goes to voicemail. Paulina says it’s her again and asks where the hell he is since he said he would help out with the twins tonight.

TR is unconscious in his bed in the Salem Inn with a syringe on the floor nearby.

Beth goes to the DiMera Mansion where EJ answers the door. Beth explains that she’s looking for Johnny as she is in his movie but hasn’t heard from him in awhile. EJ informs Beth that he’s sorry to tell her but Johnny has left town and he doesn’t know if he will ever be back.

Johnny remains chained up in the DiMera Crypt, pleading for someone to help him. He then imagines Chanel coming to save him.

Ciara and Ben convince Clyde against his name suggestion. Clyde decides it doesn’t matter as he will love the boy regardless and he will give him everything that he should’ve given Ben. Ciara hopes they didn’t hurt his feelings. Clyde says not at all as he met a nice lady and they are going out on a date. Ciara asks if they are going tonight. Clyde realizes that Ciara and Ben wanted some alone time, so he tells them not to worry about him as he will find something to do. Clyde then exits.

EJ informs Beth that Johnny left a letter, saying he needed to go back to Italy to do some soul searching. Beth questions Johnny taking off and not letting anyone know. EJ assures that if he does contact him, he will tell him to give her a call. Beth thanks him as EJ shuts the door.

Tripp checks on Eli and informs Lani that there is no change. Lani says she wasn’t expecting Tripp to be so generous and attentive with his time because she knows how bad Chanel and Allie hurt him.

Johnny believes that he is reconciling and catching up with Chanel but she morphs back in to Devil Allie, who reveals it was just a trick.

Abe arrives at Paulina’s, surprising her as she was expecting Ray. Paulina explains that she needed help with the kids and TR volunteered. Abe says he came by because he found the baby’s pacifier under the table in his living room which relieves Paulina. Abe sits down to help with the kids.

Beth goes to TR’s hotel room and knocks on the door, saying she needs to talk to him. TR wakes up and hides his syringe in a drawer. TR answers the door and asks what the hell has gotten in to her. Beth asks if he knew Johnny DiMera left town. TR asks what she’s talking about. Beth reveals that Johnny is gone and his father doesn’t know if he’ll ever be back. Beth asks why he didn’t tell her. TR responds that he didn’t know anything about it. Beth recognizes that TR is high on drugs.

Lani assures Tripp that Chanel feels terrible that he got hurt in all of this. Tripp admits he feels bad too since he said mean things to Chanel when what happened was not her fault. Tripp asks if there’s anything else he can do for Lani. Lani says just bring her husband back. Tripp encourages that Eli is stable so he’s not deteriorating. Tripp urges her not to give up. Lani promises not to and thanks him for giving her hope.

The Devil asks Johnny if he really thought Chanel would come to his rescue after what she did to her. Johnny argues that he didn’t do any of that, the Devil did, and when she finds out the truth, they will get back together. The Devil warns him to face reality. Devil Allie puts a gag over Johnny’s mouth and then calls Chanel while transforming in to Johnny’s voice. Chanel arrives at the hospital and answers the phone to hear “Johnny” say he has news for her. Chanel complains that her brother in law is in a coma, so she doesn’t care what he has to say. “Johnny” responds that he thinks she’ll care about this a lot.

Clyde goes to the DiMera Mansion. EJ answers the door and tells him that he wasted his time because he’s not welcome here. Clyde comes in anyway and remarks that it’s not a very warm welcome for his old cellmate. Clyde asks if EJ has anything to drink as he walks in to the living room. Clyde pours a drink and toasts to life on the outside. EJ comments on Clyde trying to make Ben believe he’s changed. Clyde brings up having a new grandson soon. EJ stops Clyde and asks what he’s really doing here.

The Devil as Johnny tells Chanel that he’s back in Italy and that he signed her divorce papers but his lawyer says he doesn’t have to pay a penny of alimony. He brings up Allie dumping Chanel too and says nobody seems to want her. Chanel asks if twisting the knife is the only fun he gets out of life. Chanel can’t believe she ever loved him and hangs up. The Devil assures Johnny that no one is coming to his rescue.

Tripp finds Chanel at the hospital and asks what’s wrong. Chanel questions him caring and calls him a jerk. Tripp apologizes for going off on her and says he had time to think and cool off, so he will accept she and Allie being together. Chanel responds that they are not together and never will be because Allie dumped her even faster than her brother did.

TR tells Beth to relax as they don’t need Johnny and he can direct the movie himself. Beth argues that Johnny wrote the movie so she worries that the investors could pull out when they find out he’s no longer involved. TR says he’s not worried about money as he can get everything he needs from Paulina. TR declares that he will get his hands on Paulina’s money once he marries her. Beth argues that women like Paulina don’t get to where they are by being fools, so she might have a problem with him pumping all of her money into a movie. TR responds that he can make that problem go away, just like he did with his daughter’s cop husband. Beth questions what the hell that means.

Paulina credits Abe for getting Jules to sleep. Paulina talks about being exhausted and not sure she has what it takes to be a grandma. Paulina adds that she’s a wreck about Eli and her heart breaks for Lani. Paulina tells Abe that she’s glad he came by as it means the world to her. Abe and Paulina hug and then end up kissing.

Beth realizes TR shot Eli and says she knew he was lying. TR warns her to stop sticking her nose where it doesn’t belong. TR tells her to keep her mouth shut, learn her lines, and leave the rest to him. TR says he will get control of Paulina, then realizes he was supposed to be at her place two hours ago so he has to get cleaned up. Beth warns him to clean his act up or both of their plans will go up in smoke. Beth then exits his room.

Abe and Paulina kiss until Abe pulls away and apologizes, saying that part of him will always love her, but he doesn’t want his heart to get broken again. Paulina understands she was pushing too hard just now and was telling herself that they might be able to get past what happened but it looks like she was wrong. Abe says that doesn’t mean she can’t call him if the kids get too much for her, as he will drop whatever he’s doing and come. Paulina thanks him. Abe then tells her goodnight and exits.

Devil Allie removes the gag from Johnny and says he should’ve believed him when he told him that Chanel was done with him. The Devil points out that the last time Johnny broke Chanel’s heart, she had sex with Allie, so he wonders what she’s going to do this time. The Devil remarks that it’s not his problem as he has bigger irons in the fire as he has to go check on ‘his’ baby, Ciara’s baby, as he has big plans for that boy. Johnny tells him not to do anything to that baby. The Devil asks why he would hurt the baby. The Devil notes that Ciara’s due date is coming up, so it might be time to get rid of Ben as he’s getting in his way. Johnny asks if the Devil is going to kill Ben.

Ben reminds Ciara of when they first started talking about having a baby. Ben admits he was scared back then but wishes he was on board from the beginning. Ben says having the baby is one of the two best things to ever happen to him. Ben reminds Ciara of the dream they had about naming their kid Bo. Ciara admits she would really like to name the baby after her father but asks what Clyde would think. Ben assures that it doesn’t matter. Ciara asks if he’s okay with Bo Weston. Ben assures that he is as they kiss and hug.

The Devil tells Johnny to forget about Ben as he should be worried about Chanel. Johnny yells at him to leave her alone. The Devil brings up Chanel going to the hospital, so he gives Johnny something to keep him entertained by creating a screen for Johnny to see what Chanel is up to. Chanel tells Tripp about how Allie looked at her like she wasn’t human and Johnny just called to rub it in. Tripp talks about how he couldn’t stand Johnny and doesn’t see what she saw in him. Chanel remarks that she wishes she never met Johnny or Allie. Tripp agrees with that and invites Chanel to go get a drink. Chanel says she’s here to see Lani, so Tripp says maybe another time. Chanel decides she’s no good to Lani like this, so she accepts Tripp’s offer. The Devil feels Johnny won’t like the next part but jokes that it’s worth watching. The Devil tells Johnny to stay tuned and then exits the Crypt.

TR shows up at Paulina’s. Paulina comments on him being two hours late and tells him the twins are already asleep. TR apologizes, claiming that he got stuck on a conference call. Paulina blows him off. TR says he can tell something happened and asks if it’s Eli. Paulina tells him that Eli is the same. TR comments that she looks down. Paulina responds that Abe stopped by and she made a damn fool of herself.

Abe goes to the hospital and brings Lani a vanilla milkshake with a sandwich. Lani thanks him and talks about how it’s so hard to keep seeing Eli like this. Abe points out that she doesn’t have to be here all the time. Lani talks about spending as much time as she can with the kids and then when they are asleep, she feels this is where she has to be. Lani breaks down crying as Abe hugs her.

Clyde reminds EJ that they made a lot of money when they did business together a few years ago so he’s thinking they could do that again but EJ has no interest in a partnership with him. Clyde is getting tired of working for minimum wage at the Brady Pub and says if they could make a deal, it could work out very well for EJ too. Clyde says he’ll do all the work if EJ just bankrolls the operation as a silent partner, so no one will know he’s involved. EJ brings up getting shot the last time. Clyde insists those days are over. Clyde remarks that EJ can’t be picky since he doesn’t even have a job. EJ asks what business Clyde was thinking of. Clyde brings up the window of opportunity because the local drug dealer has overdosed. EJ shuts him down and declares he has no interest in getting involved with drugs.

Ben wishes he could’ve met Ciara’s dad, Bo. Ciara says she misses him more every day but it’s like she can feel him rooting for them like a guardian angel. Devil Allie shows up at the door and asks if it’s too late. Ben says no and invites her in. Ciara says it’s so good to see her. Allie says she still feels bad about their party cake, so she hoped that she could make it up to them. Ciara assures it was the cake was not Allie’s fault. Allie knows it can be hard to sleep during the last trimester and gives Ciara a tea that worked with her when she was pregnant. Allie offers to make a cup right now which Ciara says would be great…

EJ thinks Clyde is just trying to get him involved in something illegal, so he will have enough leverage to stop him from telling the authorities that he ordered a hit on him. Clyde claims he’s an open book and not that devious. EJ remarks that he’s losing his edge and his charm isn’t working. Clyde says their deal still stands, if EJ doesn’t tell anyone about his part in what happened to him, then he will watch his back. EJ agrees to keep quiet for now but tells him to forget getting involved in any business together.

Beth goes to Eli’s hospital room with flowers. Lani introduces Beth to Abe. Beth mentions playing the role of Celeste in the movie which Abe calls a big part. Abe says he better get going. Lani thanks him for being there. Abe reminds her that she knows where he is if she needs anything. They hug and Abe then exits. Beth comments that Abe seems nice. Lani says Beth’s flowers are beautiful but points out that they barely know each other, so she questions what Beth is doing here.

Paulina complains to TR about feeling hopeless with Abe as she thought there might be a chance that Abe could get past what she did, but she has to face that he’s never going to trust her again. TR says he knows what that feels like, relating to wanting a second chance so badly. Paulina asks what he’s getting at. TR knows it will be hard to ever earn her trust again, but he hopes it’s not impossible as he would do anything to prove himself to her.

Johnny continues watching Chanel and Tripp, now together at the Bistro. They toast to the evil twins deserving each other and decide to order another round of shots. They toast to having fun. Chanel asks why Allie and Johnny should have all the fun which Tripp agrees with.

Ciara drinks the tea that Allie made and thanks her, saying it’s really delicious as she’s already getting sleepy. Ciara decides she will go to bed now so she and Ben head to their bedroom. Devil Allie remarks that it’s time to get down to business, as once she gets rid of Ben, she’ll have Ciara all to herself.

Beth says she just can’t stop thinking about Eli and how she met with him at the police station on the day he got shot. Beth adds that Eli seemed like such a nice guy and she can’t stop thinking about Lani. Beth thinks back to figuring out that TR shot Eli and his warnings. Beth informs Lani that there is something that she needs to tell her.

Paulina asks what TR wants to prove to her. TR says he’s not the man he was back then and he’ll never hurt her again. TR asks Paulina for another chance and then they kiss.

Chanel and Tripp finish taking shots. Chanel says she’s now drunk. Tripp tells her that she looks amazing. Johnny is forced to watch on as Tripp and Chanel kiss.

EJ tells Clyde that it’s time for him to leave. Clyde says he can’t because he promised Ciara and Ben a night alone. Clyde then takes a seat on the couch, annoying EJ.

Devil Allie drugs a cup of tea. Ben comes out and says Ciara is sleeping like a baby. Allie hands Ben the drugged cup of tea and says he will love the way it makes him feel…

Update written by Joseph

Jake sits in his room, complaining about nothing being on TV until Ben shows up. They greet each other and Jake asks about Ciara. Ben says she’s great and visiting her grandma while his dad is working. They have a beer and toast to nothing being on TV. Ben notes the air mattress and asks if he has company. Jake then reveals his new roommate is Ava Vitali.

Rafe meets Gabi at the Bistro. Gabi wants to toast to taking down Ava Vitali once and for all.

Ava sits in the interrogation room as Melinda enters. Ava asks what the hell took her so long while she’s been chained to the chair for 8 hours. Melinda responds that the wheels of justice turn slowly but what she’s doing today has nothing to do with justice. Ava remarks that Melinda is in a terrible mood which makes her think that her day is about to get a lot better. Melinda tells her not to gloat as they both know she had her dead to rights for framing the police commissioner. Ava reminds Melinda that she prosecuted the case. Melinda warns Ava to watch her tone and asks if she has any idea how lucky she is that she’s not facing serious time. Ava asks if that means they have a deal. Melinda hates it but confirms the deal has been finalized and Ava is getting full immunity. Ava argues that Melinda made this deal because she is handing her a headline making case in the People vs. Gwen Rizczech.

Justin declares that it’s clear that Leo and Craig are out of the wedding, so he asks what Xander and Gwen want to do. Gwen supposes there’s no reason they can’t still get married but Abigail returns and reveals that actually there is. Xander asks what she’s talking about. Abigail says she’s sorry it can’t be helped and she announces that the wedding cannot go on as planned because the bride is going to be otherwise engaged. Xander questions what she’s doing. Gwen calls this pathetic and argues that she wasn’t taken in. Gwen accuses Abigail of just setting her up to humiliate her in front of everyone. Abigail tells Gwen that she has finally got the goods on her because she overplayed her hand and the party is over.

Ava is freed from her handcuffs and signs the deal. Ava guesses she is free to go which Melinda confirms, warning her not to leave town and to clear her calendar to testify against Gwen. Melinda reminds Ava not to push it because she will find a way to turn anything she does in to a capitol offense. Ava agrees to be a model citizen and says she’s going to go because she doesn’t want to run in to Gwen when she’s brought in. Melinda comments on Ava selling Gwen out to save her own worthless ass and notes that Gwen won’t be there for awhile because they still have to draw up the warrant. Ava remarks that Gwen can still marry the love of her life then before she gets thrown in to the slammer. Melinda doesn’t think the wedding is going to go as planned after what Gwen put Abigail through. Melinda bets that right now, Abigail DiMera is having the time of her life.

Justin asks Chad what to do. Chad tells him to sit back and enjoy the show. Abigail tells Gwen that her wedding present is the final nail in her coffin. Xander asks Abigail if she can tell them this in private but Abigail says no. Abigail brings up the anniversary party that Gwen planned for Jack and Jennifer in public, where she got her drunk and made sure there was a huge audience there to witness her destroy her parents’ marriage. Abigail says that made it more fun for Gwen. Gwen asks Jack to do something since Abigail is out of control here. Jennifer stops Jack and tells him that it’s between the two of them. Jack asks if she knows what’s going on. Jennifer says she has a pretty good idea. Gwen tells Abigail that she wins and got what she wanted by absolutely ruining this for her. Gwen asks Xander to get her out of here but Abigail says she’s not going anywhere because she planned for this to be public. Xander tells Abigail to let her go. Abigail says not until they hear her news and then if they still want to, they can ride off in to the sunset together. Xander tells Abigail to spit it out. Gwen complains that Abigail just going to lie and is just trying to ruin the most important day of her life. Abigail asks if Gwen was thinking about her life and her family when she hit her over the head and had her kidnapped. Abigail remarks that as usual, Gwen was only thinking about herself. Jack tells Abigail that she’s wrong because it was Ava that had her kidnapped. Abigail reveals to Gwen that she lied to her about why she was at the police station and why she was talking to Ava. Jack wants to stop this but Jennifer says no, pointing out that Gwen knows what’s coming and that she deserves it. Abigail reminds Xander of the night that she went to the airfield to find out who was wearing the Sarah mask and that somebody hit her from behiind while she was talking to Ava. Abigail declares that she now knows who Ava’s accomplice was. Xander guesses it was the pilot. Ava says he flew her to the island but is not who knocked her out. Abigail asks Gwen if she wants to tell Xander who that person or was or if she should.

Ben and Jake eat together. Jake praises Ava’s cooking and notes that she also gives a wicked massage. Ben says she sounds like everyone’s dream roommate but he didn’t know they were that close. Jake admits they weren’t as he kept his distance since they worked together in Philly but after she broke up with Rafe, he figured he’d help her out. Ben asks who sleeps on the air mattress. Jake confirms he is, hence needing massages. Ben asks if this is going to be a long term thing. Jake says probably not because the place is cramped but then Ava just got arrested and Rafe said she’s going to be in prison for a long time.

Gabi encourages Rafe to smile since the woman who tried to ruin his life is finally going to pay. Rafe acknowledges that what Ava did was wrong and she needs to pay the consequences but he doesn’t think it is something he needs to celebrate. Gabi asks Rafe if he has any human emotion at all and if any part of him is happy about Ava being in a cell. Rafe gets that he hurt Ava but she came after him, his job, and who he is. Gabi says that’s why Ava deserves everything she has coming to her. Rafe agrees so he and Gabi then toast to Ava going off to prison for a very long time. Ava then appears and says “or not”.

Abigail jokes that the cat’s got Gwen’s tongue. Xander comments that Abigail is enjoying this which she admits, just like Gwen enjoyed sending her to the asylum and spending New Year’s Eve with her husband. Xander argues that Abigail was hit from behind so she can’t know who did it. Abigail admits she couldn’t see, but Ava could and did, then told her about it and then told Melinda all about it. Abigail asks if Xander and Gwen wrote their own vows. Chad questions Ava telling Abigail all of this. Abigail confirms that after Chad went to New York, Ava got arrested and her back was against the wall. Xander questions Ava getting arrested and then calling Abigail. Abigail explains that Ava remembered that after she was kidnapped, Chad offered her a deal if she named her accomplice. Gwen argues that Ava said all of this just to save her own ass. Abigail imagines Gwen’s lawyer will bring that up in the trial, but she’s more interested in Xander’s opinion. Xander agrees with Gwen that Ava isn’t trustworthy. Abigail points out that Ava revealed Gwen attacked her before being offered immunity because she wanted her to be able to go to Melinda with something concrete. Abigail reveals that this night at the airstrip was just the tip of the iceberg as Ava had a whole lot more to tell Melinda about what Gwen has been doing since that night. Abigail declares that night is nothing compared to what Gwen did later. Justin questions what could be worse than kidnapping her own sister. Xander would like to hear that too. Abigail responds that what Gwen did to her is terrible, but it’s nothing compared to what she did to Sarah.

Ben doesn’t blame Gabi for wanting to make Ava pay for what she did to Rafe. Jake says that wasn’t her only motive as Gabi wasn’t thrilled about Ava moving in with him. Jake adds that Gabi thinks Ava only moved in to get under her skin. Ben asks what Jake thinks and if Ava is up to something.

Gabi questions Ava being out of jail and accuses her of escaping so she tells Rafe to arrest her. Ava mocks the idea. Rafe guesses she made bail. Ava reveals that she didn’t have to as all charges have been dropped and she’s free. Rafe doesn’t believe her, so Ava shows him the papers. Rafe reads that Melinda gave Ava immunity in exchange for her testimony against someone else. Gabi argues that she can’t do that. Ava responds that Melinda is the district attorney which means she can do whatever she wants and since all charges were dropped against her, she can too. Ava tells Rafe to tell Nicole that she said hi. Ava adds that she’ll give Gabi’s regards to Jake as she then exits.

Xander asks Abigail what exactly Gwen supposedly did to Sarah. Gwen insists it was nothing as she barely knows her. Abigail brings up that Xander loves Sarah, wanted to marry her, and Gwen was only in the picture because Sarah was out of it. Gwen blames Kristen. Abigail argues that Gwen was determined to make sure Sarah stay kidnapped. Abigail talks about figuring out the Sarah mask and then Gwen had her knocked out and sent to the island where she already knew that Sarah was being kept. Abigail insists that Gwen knew where Sarah was but didn’t feel Xander had a right to know and didn’t tell Maggie either. Gwen tries to argue that it’s not true. Abigail says it makes perfect sense and that’s why Gwen freaked out when she decided to find her. Xander argues that Gwen couldn’t have known as nobody did until Chad found Abigail. Abigail reminds Xander that Kristen knew and that is the connection to make all this make sense. Abigail tells Xander that he knows better than anyone that Kristen would have someone else do her dirty work for her and she knew that Gwen would do anything to get Xander to marry her. Abigail points out that they were only a couple minutes away from getting married. Gwen swears to Xander that she didn’t know Sarah was on that island until he told her that she had been rescued. Abigail reveals that she has evidence as Melinda presented a copy of Ava’s statement, which says that Gwen found out Sarah was on the island back in November. Abigail adds that she and Chad didn’t bring Sarah back until March, so that means Gwen knew Sarah was on the island for 4 months. Abigail guesses it slipped her mind while she was planning the wedding.

Jake tells Ben that Gabi wasn’t wrong since Ava did enjoy driving Gabi crazy and even made Gabi think they slept together. Ben jokes about Gabi being the jealous type. Jake says he practically had to stop Gabi from killing Ava. Ben asks Jake if he slept with Ava. Jake repeats that Ava just made Gabi think that. Ben acknowledges that Ava is very attractive and they are both free so it’s not a stretch. Jake confirms that Ava gave him a massage and that’s it. Ben asks if there was any interest in returning the favor. Jake says it doesn’t matter because Ava is in jail. Ava then comes home and reveals she’s not anymore. Jake says he was never expecting to see Ava again. Ava responds that rumors of her incarceration have been greatly exaggerated.

Gabi goes to the police station and confronts Melinda over letting Ava go. Melinda responds that she doesn’t have to explain anything to her as it’s none of her business. Gabi argues that she risked life and limb to get her the evidence and now she’s just letting Ava walk. Melinda reveals that Ava had her own truly damning evidence.

Xander asks Gwen to say it isn’t true. Gwen cries that she can’t do that. Xander questions her knowing what happened to Sarah and not saying anything. Xander asks how she found out. Abigail reveals that Kristen blackmailed Gwen in to helping her escape prison by threatening to tell Xander the truth about Sarah. Abigail adds that Kristen knew Gwen would do anything to get what she wants, including posing as Sarah, which Xander questions. Abigail reminds Xander of when “Sarah” came back to town to reject him for a second time and according to Ava, that was Gwen in the mask. Xander is shocked to learn that was Gwen. Xander questions how she could possibly have done that. Gwen cries that she was just so afraid of losing him after she had already lost Jack. Jennifer asks if Sarah’s life just didn’t matter. Gwen says that Kristen told her that Sarah was fine and well taken care of. Justin questions believing Kristen. Gwen insists that she didn’t know what she was like as she didn’t know Kristen like they did. Abigail points out that Gwen knew Maggie was worried sick. Abigail adds that Kristen also drugged Sarah so they had that in common. Gwen cries that she thought that would make it better for Sarah. Xander screams at Gwen. Gwen explains that Kristen said she used the drug to calm her down and that Sarah went with her willingly. Gwen adds that Sarah wasn’t suffering and didn’t even know who she was. Abigail states that Sarah was out of her mind because Gwen made sure she stayed that way.

Ava tells Jake and Ben that she should be used to it by now but she really hates being arrested. Ben says they obviously have a lot to talk about so he’s heading out. Jake sends his best to Ciara and tells him to keep him posted. Ben agrees and tells Ava to enjoy her freedom as he exits. Jake questions Ava as to what happened since Rafe seemed pretty convinced he had her dead to rights. Ava blows it off as something Gabi cooked up and remarks that Gabi should learn not to play out of her league.

Gabi questions Melinda making a deal with Ava after what she did to Rafe. Melinda says she’s not about to justify herself to her. Rafe arrives and figured Gabi would be there. Melinda explains that Ava gave them a much higher profile case to prosecute so she tells Rafe not to take it personally. Rafe complains that Ava railroaded him and now Melinda is making a deal with her. Gabi argues that everything Ava says is a lie. Melinda informs Rafe that she was just about to call him because of the high profile case, so the arrest needs to be by the book and she wants Rafe to take care of it personally. Rafe asks who he will be arresting. Melinda reveals that it’s Gwen.

Xander asks what Abigail means by saying Gwen made sure that Sarah stayed out of her mind. Gwen tries to explain that she was so scared of losing him that she panicked. Abigail argues that Gwen just saw Sarah as an obstacle in her way so she executed her plan. Xander tells Abigail to just tell him. Abigail reminds Chad of how Dr. Rolf said the antidote should have worked. Chad reiterates that Rolf could not believe it didn’t. Abigail reveals that’s because the injection that Anna gave Sarah was not the antidote because Gwen switched the antidote with another dose of poison, shocking Xander. Abigail apologizes for being emotional as she explains that Ava said Gwen had some of the original drug leftover from when she gave it to her. Abigail says this is not new territory or a tragic mistake as Gwen knew in detail what the drug would do to a person’s brain and she did it again to someone she barely knew. Abigail declares that’s not panic, but pre-meditation. Jack confronts Gwen, yelling at her as he asks if it’s true. Gwen cries that Jack was gone. Jack tells her to never call him “dad” again. Jack talks about forgiving Gwen and believing she could be saved, but now there are no words. Jack declares that he is done with Gwen and walks away. Gwen asks Xander if he’s done with her too. Xander says she knew how much he loved Sarah, where she was, and what Kristen had done to her. Xander adds that they were this close to Sarah being herself again and Gwen might as well have put a bullet through her brain. Xander calls Gwen the worst person he has ever known.

Rafe guesses he better get to the wedding before the mob turns on the bride. Melinda orders Rafe to bring her in the front and to make sure she is handcuffed because she wants to make sure The Intruder and the Spectator get nice shots of her on the police station steps. Rafe remarks on her craving those headlines. Rafe exits the station while Gabi tells Melinda that she’s not done with her yet.

Ava tells Jake that she’s exhausted but she’s taking the air mattress so Jake doesn’t throw his back out again. Jake instead suggests they just share the bed.

Xander walks away from Gwen as she cries. Abigail tells Gwen to let him go as she’s done enough already. Gwen cries that this was none of Abigail’s damn business. Abigail responds that Sarah is her cousin and a human being. Gwen yells at Abigail to go to Hell and says she doesn’t fool her because she knows this is payback. Gwen argues that Abigail and Jennifer are no better than her and they make her sick. Jennifer tells Gwen that Abigail is tough while Gwen is a coward that she just brought down. Gwen tells Jennifer to shut up. Jennifer tells Gwen to say whatever she has to say. Rafe then arrives to arrest Gwen. Jennifer hugs Jack and asks if he’s alright. Jack says no but he will be. Jennifer and Jack agree that this is over. Jack goes to Abigail and assures they are good, understanding she did what she had to do. Abigail didn’t want to be right but says she had to be stopped. Jennifer suggests they go home. Gwen mocks that they are going to celebrate since she’s out of the picture. Gwen stops to whisper in Abigail’s ear that she killed her grandmother on purpose. Rafe then escorts Gwen away.

Gabi tells Melinda that she’s not going to sit around and watch Ava go free. Melinda asks if that’s a threat. Gabi wonders what Abe will think when he finds out that Melinda let Ava go free after what she did to Rafe. Gabi then exits the station and Melinda calls her a bitch.

Ava asks Jake if he’s sure. Jake asks why not since they are both adults. Ava says that may be why not. Jake asks if she’s never shared a bed with somebody platonically. They both admit they never have but Jake says there’s a first time for everything. They agree to sharing the bed and lay down as they say goodnight to each other.

Abigail stares on in shock as Jennifer asks Abigail what Gwen just said to her.

Update written by Joseph

Jennifer asks Abigail if she was able to make the deal with Melinda for Ava but Abigail says she wasn’t able to get a hold of her, so she assumes she’s still thinking it over. Jennifer complains about Gwen knocking Abigail out. Abigail hopes Melinda will grant Ava immunity but reminds Jennifer that they have to keep quiet as they can’t tip Gwen off. Gwen then comes back in to the room in her wedding dress. Abigail and Jennifer remark that she looks beautiful while Gwen talks about marrying the man of her dreams.

Xander and Jack talk about the wedding in the town square. Xander jokes with Jack about calling him dad. Xander then gets a call from Maggie, so he assumes it’s about Sarah as he answers the phone.

Bonnie joins Justin in the living room of the Kiriakis Mansion. Justin mentions officiating the wedding. Bonnie talks about wanting to be at the wedding for Nancy because she knows it will be difficult for her to see Craig marry someone else, especially Leo Stark. Justin mentions not being a big fan of Leo either, especially after what he did to Sonny. Bonnie says it’s a shame that Sonny couldn’t change Craig’s mind. Justin agrees and guesses there is nothing anyone can say or do to change Craig’s mind about Leo.

Craig and Leo talk about getting ready for their wedding in their room. Leo tells Craig to head to the town square and he will see him at the altar, so Craig exits. Leo then makes a phone call, wondering why they are not picking up as the wedding is about to start and he really needs to talk to them.

Xander thanks Maggie and says he’ll see her soon as he then hangs up. Jack asks what she said. Xander says she just wanted to wish him well. Jack asks about Sarah. Xander says there’s no change in her condition which Jack is sorry to hear. Jennifer joins them. Jack asks about Abigail and Gwen. Jennifer says they are in the lobby getting ready. Xander remarks that his bride always has a trick up her sleeve.

Gwen thanks Abigail, who says she is just doing her job. Gwen thanks Abigail for being there for her as her matron of honor. Abigail responds that they are both exactly where they need to be. Gwen asks where Chad is. Abigail informs her that Chad and Sonny had to make a quick trip out of town. Gwen guesses he won’t be coming tonight. Abigail says they were hoping he’d get back in time for the wedding, but that doesn’t look like it will be happening.

In the town square, Brady asks Justin to stall the wedding for as long as he can and to not let Craig and Leo get married. Justin asks why. Brady tells him that he and Chloe hope this match made in Hell goes up in flames. Chloe hugs Craig and tells him that she’s sorry Parker couldn’t make it. Craig understands it’s last minute and mentions inviting Nancy, but he thinks it might have been too much. Chloe agrees but then Nancy arrives which makes Craig smile. Nancy joins Bonnie, who questions her not bringing her new man and asks if the date didn’t go well. Nancy reveals it went great and they are having dinner tomorrow night which excites Bonnie. Bonnie asks why he didn’t escort her to the wedding. Nancy says she decided to go solo and stand on her own two feet. Bonnie encourages that she will be there to hold her up. Craig tells Justin that it’s time to get this show on the road which Xander agrees with. Justin states that they have two weddings coming right up as Brady watches on.

Gwen asks Abigail if there’s something she’s not telling her about Chad not being there. Abigail promises it has nothing to do with her. Gwen says she is glad. Gwen adds that Abigail may not believe it, but she’s really glad she is there for her today. Gwen acknowledges that they have had ups and downs, but she is her sister and she wants today to be a fresh start for both of them. Jack and Chloe enter the room. Chloe tells them that they are about to start and asks Gwen if she is ready. Gwen confirms that she is. Jack tells her that she looks radiant. Gwen thanks him and talks about wanting a father for so long and now he’s going to walk her down the aisle. Jack encourages that she is marrying the man she loves while surrounded by family. Gwen responds that she’s just not used to being happy. Jack tells her to get used to it and that he loves her as they hug. Chloe asks Abigail if she’s seen Leo. Abigail says she hasn’t, so Chloe hopes he got cold feet.

Brady texts Chad, asking where he is because the wedding is about to start. The music then begins as Xander and Craig stand with Justin at the altar. Abigail then comes out from the Salem Inn and walks down the aisle, then takes her seat next to Jennifer. Jack then walks Gwen down the aisle to Xander. Jack then sits next to Jennifer. Chloe then walks down the aisle and hugs Craig, before taking her seat next to Brady. Leo then makes a grand entrance down the aisle, causing laughter from the audience. Gwen and Leo compliment each other. Leo comments on Justin drawing up the pre-nup so fast. Justin then begins the ceremony of the double wedding and thanks everyone for being there. Justin speaks about marriage and asks if anyone objects to the wedding. Justin then goes to continue, but Nancy stands up and announces that she has something to say. Bonnie questions what she’s doing. Craig and Leo wonder what she’s doing. Chloe tells Nancy that it’s not the right time but Nancy says she needs to say this. Nancy tells Craig that they may no longer be married, but they will always be family and nothing will ever change that, so she just wanted to wish him all the happiness in the world. Craig thanks her and tells her how much that means to him. Leo thanks Nancy for saying that, even though it’s in the middle of his wedding. Nancy adds that she just wants to say that she has a date tomorrow night. Craig turns to Justin to continue the wedding. Justin comments that Nancy’s speech highlights that they are all here to support the two couples. Justin acknowledges Jack being Xander’s best man and also walking Gwen down the aisle while Abigail is standing up for her sister. Justin points out Chloe being here for her father. Leo questions if they are doing roll call. Justin asks if Leo doesn’t have anyone there for him tonight. Leo claims that they had scheduling snafus, but now he thinks he should have a best man of his own. Leo then pronounces Brady as his best man and tells him to give a nice speech at the reception. Justin then decides on a prayer but Leo argues that they are here to get married. Leo suggests they can do the prayer after he marries them. Justin then reluctantly guesses it’s time to continue the vows. Justin picks Gwen and Xander to go first but Gwen thinks Leo and Craig should go first since they were so generous to share their wedding with them and they are so grateful. Leo responds that he would do anything for Gwen. Justin asks if there’s anything Leo and Craig want to say before they start their vows. Leo thanks everyone for coming and calls it the happiest day of his life. Leo jokes that he would be jealous of Gwen if his situation was different and remarks that she’s a very lucky lady but Craig is the only man for him. Leo talks about being aimless and lost before he met Craig. Leo says he’s now happy and eager to share the rest of his life with Craig. Leo calls Craig his everything and vows to love him forever. Justin asks if Craig has anything to say. Craig says he wouldn’t be able to get it out as he wipes tears from his eyes and then motions for Justin to continue. Justin guesses there is nothing more to do but move on to the official vows. Justin goes to start but pretends to start sneezing. Justin then asks Leo if he takes Craig to be his lawfully wedded husband. Leo says hell yeah. Justin then asks Craig if he takes Leo to be his lawfully wedded husband. Craig says “I do”. Chloe complains to Brady that it’s really happening. Justin asks for the rings which Chloe hands over to Craig. Leo and Craig place the rings on each others’ fingers. Justin starts to make it official but Chad runs in, yelling for them to stop. Chad declares that this wedding cannot happen. Gwen asks Chad not to do this. Chad tells Gwen that this is not about her, but about Leo which Craig questions. Chad tells Craig that there is something he needs to know. Leo tells Chad to sit down as there is nothing he can do to stop this marriage from happening. Chad then asks about the fact that Leo is already married, shocking everyone in attendance!

Craig questions Leo, who denies it and calls this completely ridiculous. Leo tells him not to listen to anything Chad has to say as it’s just another attempt to break them up. Leo complains that Chad refuses to believe that somebody can change for the better and declares that every word out of Chad’s mouth is a lie. Chad knows they have every reason to doubt him, so they can instead listen to world renowned drag queen Jackie Cox, who then arrives. Jackie is sorry to crash the wedding but loves some wedding drama. Craig questions who the hell this is. Chad introduces Jackie as Leo’s BFF, who they met in Arizona last year. Leo questions what Jackie is doing here. Jackie talks about performing in New York when Chad and Sonny showed up backstage. Chad notes that Sonny got a work call on the way here, otherwise he would have had a front row seat. Jackie explains that Chad and Sonny offered a private jet to come reveal the truth, which is that Leo is already married. Leo questions how that would even be possible as he wouldn’t have been able to get a marriage license. Jackie says they both know it’s because Leo married Jackie, using his birth name of Matthew Cooper. Leo asks if they can go somewhere and talk but Jackie thinks this is the perfect setting. Chloe tells Brady that this is more than she hoped for. Craig asks Leo what the hell is going on. Leo argues that Chad must have paid Jackie off to spread these terrible lies. Jackie tells Leo to save it and reveals their marriage certificate. Jennifer and Jack whisper about what is going on. Craig reads the marriage certificate which says that Matthew Cooper is wedded to Darius Rose. Craig asks who the hell is Darius Rose. Leo claims that there is no Darius Rose because this is all made up. Jackie then declares that they need to set the record straight.

Jackie Cox removes the drag queen makeup, revealing himself to be Darius Rose, husband of Matthew Cooper. Craig questions Leo being married to him. Leo then admits that he and Darius were married while Darius quickly clarifies that they are married. Leo says it’s not what it looks like so Craig questions him. Leo explains that Darius needed a green card because he’s from Canada, so they had to get married and he did it as a favor to a friend. Craig asks if they are just friends then. Leo admits they hooked up a few times but realized they were better off as sisters. Craig asks Darius if that’s true. Darius confirms that these days, their relationship is strictly platonic. Chloe argues that it doesn’t change the fact that Leo just tried to commit bigamy if Chad and Jackie hadn’t shown up, then Craig would be roped into a fraudulent marriage. Leo apologizes to Craig and claims that he tried to tell him, but he proposed out of the blue and it was so sweet and then the wedding got moved up, so he got caught up in everything. Leo argues that it was not a real marriage. Brady argues that Leo still lied to Craig. Leo complains that it was to protect a friend since if he divorced Darius, he’d lose his green card and get sent back to Canada. Craig calls this a very complicated situation. Chloe feels it’s not that complicated. Craig tells Leo that he’s not happy that he lied to him, but he gets it. Chloe can’t believe it while Leo thanks Craig. Brady argues that it doesn’t matter whether Craig forgives him or not, because Leo is still married so they can’t go through with this wedding. Craig asks Justin if there’s anything he can do to help figure this out. Justin says he can look at options but it will take some time. Craig asks if it can happen today but Justin declares that he cannot sanction this marriage. Leo decides it’s disappointing but maybe for the best. Leo points out all the angry, judgmental faces and says when they do get married, it should be around people who support and love them, not haters. Chad questions Leo blaming them. Leo tells Craig they should get out of here and let Xander and Gwen get married which Craig agrees with. Bonnie starts to argue that Leo is taking Craig for a ride. Leo explains that he married Darius because he would go to the ends of the earth to help a friend but when he marries Craig, it will be for love only. Chad responds that he’s not buying that and instructs Darius to tell them. Craig questions there being more. Chad reminds Darius that he said he would tell the whole truth. Darius then agrees to tell the truth because he’s a big fan of honesty in certain situations. Darius then announces that Leo doesn’t love Craig because he really cares that he’s a doctor, who rakes in the big bucks. Craig asks Leo how Darius knows this. Darius reveals that he is Leo’s confidant and Leo has told him that their entire relationship has been one big flim flam. Craig disagrees but Darius insists that to Leo, Craig is just a mark. Leo swears it’s not true. Darius argues that Leo has been targeting Craig since the moment he met him at the medical convention. Craig questions Darius knowing about that. Darius repeats that he’s Leo’s confidant and says when Leo came home that night, talking about a rich, hot doctor, they discussed how Craig would be easily susceptible to Leo’s charms. Chad adds that they concocted a plan to get Craig to marry Leo illegally, then divorce him and take him to the cleaners. Leo shouts that they are lying and he would never do that to him, reminding that he signed the pre-nup. Darius offers to show the text messages. Gwen interrupts to ask why Darius would blow up his own plan and stab Leo in the back before getting his pay off. Darius argues that Leo stabbed him in the back first by signing the pre-nup, giving up his right to Craig’s money, when half of that was supposed to be his. Darius yells that Leo screwed him over. Leo argues that he tried to call and tell him but his mailbox was full. Craig asks if it’s true then that this was all a scam. Leo says no, but then admits it was in the beginning until he really fell for him along the way. Leo insists that it’s not a lie which is why he signed the pre-nup, because he didn’t care about the money and only wanted Craig. Leo tells Craig that he’s telling him the truth. Craig asks when Leo fell in love with him. Leo admits he’s not sure but it might have been when he was defending him to Chloe or when they were in bed talking about their future or maybe when he proposed, but somewhere along the way, he stopped being the mark and started being the man he loves. Leo asks Craig if he can forgive him and if they can move past this. Craig instead walks away back down the aisle.

Chad thanks Darius for coming and says he really helped them out. Darius thanks Chad but admits he feels guilty for wrecking Leo like that. Abigail says telling Craig the truth was the right thing to do. Chad tells Darius that his driver will take him back to get back to New York whenever he’s ready. Darius tells Chad that he likes his style as they shake hands. Abigail tells Darius that they want to come see his show sometime. Darius says they will be his guests. Abigail then gets a call and steps away to answer.

Brady stops Leo and tells him he’s not going anywhere near Craig again because it’s over.

Chloe goes to see Craig in his room. Chloe cries that she’s so sorry. Craig asks why that is since she got what she wanted as they stopped him from marrying Leo and made a fool out of him. Chloe says it wasn’t about that and he’s not a fool for falling in love. Craig breaks down crying as Chloe hugs him.

Nancy tells Bonnie that she wants to go comfort Craig, but that’s not her job anymore. Bonnie assures that Chloe’s doing a good job and suggests they go get a drink, so they walk off together. Chad comments to Jack and Jennifer that Abigail has been on the phone for awhile, so he asks if they know who she is talking to. Jack suggests it could be Spectator business. Jennifer says there is something they should probably know. Jennifer adds that she wasn’t going to say anything but they should be prepared. Xander and Gwen interrupt. Xander talks about Salem weddings being notorious for drama but he didn’t see bigamy and a drag queen wedding crasher coming. Gwen asks if Chad really had to humiliate Leo so publicly. Chad says his intention was to tell Craig the truth that he was about to make the mistake of his life. Justin declares that it’s clear that Leo and Craig are out of the wedding, so he asks what Xander and Gwen want to do. Gwen supposes there’s no reason they can’t still get married but Abigail returns and reveals that actually there is.

Update written by Joseph

Chloe goes to see Brady at home. They kiss and Brady asks if she’s here to celebrate after giving Leo the pre-nup, which he calls brilliant. Brady asks how it went but Chloe reveals that Leo actually signed it which shocks Brady.

Leo tells Craig that he would do anything for him. Craig felt like he put him on the spot by insisting he sign the pre-nup. Leo hopes Craig knows that he only hesitated because he felt ambushed, not because of the money, and if he hadn’t signed it then it could’ve ruined their marriage because Chloe and everyone would continue to think he’s a gold digger, so he caved. Leo doesn’t like caving because he’s a very proud man. Craig calls him selfless when he thought he couldn’t love him more. Craig kisses Leo and thanks him, promising he won’t regret it as they hug.

Xander brings Jack home after driving him from the airport. Xander feels he owes him for being his best man. Jennifer comes in and praises Xander for looking after the garden. Jennifer says she’s so glad to be home, though she knows they missed so much while being away. Jack says they are here to celebrate the good news. Jack brings up Abigail being Gwen’s matron of honor, so he hopes this means they are finally patching things up.

Gwen arrives at the police station disguised in a hat and coat. She tries to sneak in to the interrogation room but is caught by Abigail. Gwen asks Abigail what she’s doing here. Abigail responds that she heard Ava had been arrested and she wanted to talk to her. Gwen questions what they could possibly have to talk about. Abigail thinks back to Ava telling her that Gwen attacked her. Abigail then tells Gwen that they had a lot to talk about. Abigail hoped Ava might finally give her the name of the person who knocked her out at the airstrip and got her kidnapped, as she might be able to use that to leverage a plea deal. Gwen asks if Ava told her what she wanted to know. Abigail claims that she did not and then asks Gwen what she’s doing at the police station on her wedding day.

Jack asks where Abigail and Gwen are. Xander says they are taking care of wedding business. Jennifer reminds Xander that he’s not supposed to see his bride on the wedding day. Xander brings up how Sarah insisted on that for their wedding and they know what happened to her. Jennifer mentions talking to Maggie. Xander feels like if he was with her that night, he could have protected her so he’s not fond of that superstition. Xander says he and Gwen feel they’ve already had enough bad luck and that finding each other is the beginning of a new life. Xander explains that the ceremony is tonight in the town square and that it’s a double wedding. Jennifer points out that is what she and Jack did, as she asks who the other bride and groom are. Xander reveals that Gwen is the only bride as a friend of hers is marrying his boyfriend so there will be three grooms.

Craig and Leo return to their room at the Salem Inn. Craig comments on Leo being quiet on the way over. Leo says that he was right that signing the pre-nup was the only way to get Chloe, Sonny, and everyone else to believe what they already know, that he’s marrying him not for his money but because he’s the love of his life, as they kiss.

Brady goes over the pre-nup and points out that Leo gets nothing if they break up. Chloe confirms that Leo read every word and still signed it because Craig convinced him to. Brady points out that at least Leo can’t screw Craig over. Chloe wonders if it’s possible that they were wrong and Leo wasn’t after Craig for his money, but is actually marrying him for love.

Craig suggests he and Leo get ready for their wedding. Leo mentions there is something he wants to talk to him about before the wedding. Leo informs him that he has a confession to make.

Gwen tells Abigail that she came to the police station to see her. Abigail points out that she seemed surprised to see her and questions her wearing a hat in April. Gwen claims she was trying to avoid frizzy hair on her wedding day. Gwen says she couldn’t find Abigail, so she called the Spectator and found out she was here covering a story. Gwen claims that she looked surprised because she didn’t know that Ava had been arrested. Abigail confirms that Ava has been charged with planting evidence against Rafe. Gwen asks if the charges have nothing to do with what happened to Abigail, which she confirms. Abigail continues to claim that Ava won’t give her the name of who knocked her out. Gwen suggests it was the pilot and that Ava is afraid of him. Gwen asks if they should go since Xander went to pick up Jack at the airport and she thinks he would love to see her and he’d be pleased that she’s standing up for her. Gwen asks if she’s ready. Abigail says the office is calling her so she’ll just meet her at the house. Gwen then exits the station while Abigail pretends to answer her phone. After Gwen leaves, Abigail goes back in to the interrogation room where Ava asks if she convinced Melinda to give her a deal because that’s the only way she is giving her the dirt on Gwen.

Craig tells Leo to tell him whatever it is. Leo says it’s about the guy that Gwen is going to marry. Leo informs Craig that his name is Xander Cook and he kind of tried to get him to go to bed with him.

Jack and Jennifer are shocked to learn that Craig Wesley is getting married and that he left Nancy for a man. Jennifer recognizes Leo as the guy that caused so many problems for Will and Sonny. Jennifer calls it poor judgment. Xander says he’s never even seen Craig but it turns out Leo and Gwen are old friends. Jennifer talks about never being crazy about Craig after he stole her brother’s job, but Nancy worshipped him so she must be devastated.

Nancy is outside the Brady Pub, on the phone with Bonnie, worrying about meeting the guy she met on the dating app. Nancy tells Bonnie that she’s going in now to face the music. Nancy hangs up and enters the Pub. Nancy then starts to turn around and leave but Clyde calls out to her. Clyde and Nancy introduce themselves. Nancy admits she’s a bit nervous as Clyde invites her to sit down. Clyde tells Nancy that she’s prettier in person. Nancy thanks him and calls him very handsome. Clyde thinks they are off to a pretty good start. Nancy hopes so as it’s her first date in a really long time. Clyde says he’s recently back on the market too. Nancy informs him that she just got divorced while Clyde reveals that he just got out of prison.

Brady tells Chloe that he doesn’t want to sound cynical but he doesn’t buy that Leo is actually in love with Craig because he doesn’t believe a guy like Leo changes his spots. Chloe asks why Leo signed the pre-nup then unless he plans on staying married to Craig long enough to spend all of his money. Brady supposes it’s possible. Chloe feels they thought of everything but nothing worked as it seems like Leo is always one step ahead. Chloe guesses that Leo is going to be her stepdad and there’s nothing she can do about it. Brady responds that actually maybe there is.

Craig asks if Leo is saying he cheated on him. Leo assures he would never do that and thought he made that clear with Chad. Leo clarifies that this was years ago, long before he met Craig, as he was a bit of a player back then. Craig asks what happened. Leo says nothing because Xander is straight. Craig asks if he wanted something to happen. Leo assures that when he meets Xander, he will understand why he wanted to get under his kilt.

Jennifer asks if Xander and Jack will be wearing kilts tonight. Xander says he decided to spare Jack that and they will be going with tuxedos. Xander adds that they better get going. Gwen arrives, thrilled to see Jack is there as they hug. Jack assures he wouldn’t miss her wedding for the world. Gwen wonders if Jack would walk her down the aisle to give her away. Jack would be honored as they hug. Xander adds that when it’s all over, Jack will be his father in law. Gwen declares that everything is so perfect..

Abigail informs Ava that Gwen just showed up at the police station, but she told her that Ava wouldn’t tell her who helped her kidnap her. Ava guesses that Gwen was on her way in here to talk her in to keeping her mouth shut. Ava asks what kept Abigail from giving her up. Abigail responds that she’s not tipping her off until Ava gives her the whole story. Ava says that depends on what Melinda said. Abigail responds that she’s interested but she needs more information, so Ava tells her to tell Melinda to come talk to her. Abigail tells Ava to just tell her the story and she’ll go back to her. Ava asks what else she needs. Abigail says that Ava made it clear that Gwen did a lot worse than that, so she wants the details. Ava asks if she’s certain that Melinda is willing to make a deal. Abigail says absolutely. Ava tells Abigail that if she gets her the deal, she will give her whatever she needs to bury her sister.

Jack says it’s good to see Xander and Gwen looking so happy. Xander reminds Jack that they have to get their tuxedos fitted so he’s not late for his own wedding. Xander kisses Gwen goodbye as he and Jack then exit. Gwen tells Jennifer that she’s very happy she’s going to be at the wedding tonight. Jennifer says she’s very happy that they have some time alone, because there is something she wants to say to her.

Clyde asks Nancy if him being an ex-con is a dealbreaker for her and says he would certainly understand if it is. Nancy says she was just taken back but it’s not a dealbreaker. Nancy says for over 30 years, she thought she was married to the perfect man but he cheated on her. Nancy talks about knowing something was wrong between them but he kept lying to her. Nancy points out that she just met Clyde and he’s been honest and open with her which she respects.

Brady reminds Chloe about how they overheard Leo talking to Jackie on the phone and explains that Sonny is pretty sure it was Jackie Cox, who might know if Leo is trying to scam Craig. Chloe asks how to find Jackie. Brady informs her that Sonny and Chad are on their way to New York right now to try to track her down. Chloe points out that the wedding is in a couple hours and this seems like a long shot. Brady says this may be the only shot they have.

Leo tells Craig that he doesn’t want any secrets between them, so he thought he better tell him that he’ll be sharing his wedding with a man he lusted after. Leo asks if Craig is mad. Craig says no and he appreciates him being honest with him as they hug. Leo says nobody has ever cared for him the way Craig does. Craig says he makes him happy and he loves him. Jack and Xander then show up at the door. Craig and Jack awkwardly greet one another. Leo questions Craig and Jack knowing each other. Craig asks what Jack is doing here. Xander explains that Jack is Gwen’s dad and also his best man. Craig admits he did not know that. Jack says that’s why he suggested they all share a drink together before the wedding. Craig informs Xander that he and Leo were just talking about him.

Gwen tells Jennifer that she knows she’s not her favorite person and for good reason. Gwen admits that when she came to Salem, she was terribly unhappy and took it all out on Jennifer and her family, especially Abigail. Gwen tells Jennifer that Abigail has managed to forgive her which means the world to her, because with her forgiveness and Xander’s love, she stopped becoming the person who did all those horrible things. Gwen adds that she was very angry and spiteful because she thought nobody was ever going to love her, but now she has Jack and Xander so for the first time, she feels like she has a family of her own. Gwen asks what Jennifer wanted to say. Jennifer says that Gwen has lived in the house, sees pictures of family everywhere, and probably figured family means everything to her and Jack. Jennifer tells Gwen that she wanted to say that Jack is really proud of the person she has become, and so is she. Jennifer then hugs Gwen as Abigail walks in and sees them. Gwen thanks Jennifer. Abigail then greets Jennifer, saying she didn’t know she was coming as they hug. Jennifer is relieved to see that she’s okay for herself. Jennifer brings up Abigail being Gwen’s matron of honor. Gwen can’t believe she’s getting married in a little while so she needs to get ready. Abigail offers to help. Gwen says she’ll let her know if she needs anything as she heads upstairs. Jennifer then asks Abigail what’s wrong. Abigail responds that she just learned some very interesting intel about Gwen.

Brady finishes a call with Chad and Sonny, informing them that Leo signed the pre-nup so it’s now all up to them. Brady tells Chloe that he hopes they find out soon if they find Jackie Cox. Chloe worries it won’t be soon enough to stop the wedding, so she has to go get ready for it. Brady reminds Chloe that she won’t be doing this alone. Chloe asks if he’s ready to go public. Brady wants the whole world to know that she is his girl as they kiss.

Xander, Jack, Leo, and Craig have a drink. Xander pours a second drink while Leo comments on Gwen being lucky. Craig guesses Jack has heard about he and Nancy. Jack confirms he has and asks how she’s holding up. Craig responds that Nancy is in a great deal of pain and he feels terrible about that, but he just couldn’t lie to her anymore or to himself. Craig calls Nancy an amazing lady, so he prays that she finds the right man to spend the next chapter of her life with…

Clyde tells Nancy that it’s hard enough to have her husband leave her but for another man. Nancy informs him that Craig is marrying the other man today and invited her to the wedding. Clyde remarks that he must have some nerve. Nancy reveals that she might go and that’s one of the reasons that she got on the dating app because she didn’t like the thought of going alone. Clyde then asks if she’s asking him to escort her to the wedding. Nancy asks if he feels used. Clyde says no but he doesn’t think she really wants him to take her to that. Clyde encourages that people aren’t going to look at her being alone and feel sorry for her. Clyde tells her to go to the wedding and hold her head up high, so people will see what he sees; a beautiful, strong woman who doesn’t need a man to make herself complete.

Chloe says she’d love for Brady to go with her to the wedding, but asks if he’s sure he’s ready for his daughter Rachel to find out about them. Brady says he hasn’t told her yet but she knows how Rachel feels about her. Chloe thinks Rachel just likes her as his friend. Brady assures that he’s talked to her about him and Kristen, so she knows they will never be a couple again. Brady calls it sad but Rachel said she didn’t want him to be lonely and she sees how happy Chloe makes him. Brady thinks Rachel will think it’s a good thing. Chloe asks if he’s sure. Brady says he is and they kiss.

Craig proposes a toast to Leo, the man who makes his heart sing and he will call his husband. Leo toasts to Craig as the bravest man he knows and his husband to be. Xander toasts to Gwen as being everything he loves in a woman. Jack toasts to Xander for standing up for Gwen and standing behind her, showing him how to see what he saw in her; a young woman who just wants to be loved and now she is by both of them. They all toast to love.

Abigail reveals to Jennifer that Gwen is the one who knocked her unconscious and is the reason she was kidnapped. Abigail adds that Gwen doesn’t know that she knows, so they have to keep it down. Jennifer complains that she just told Gwen how proud she is of her and worries about how devastated Jack will be by this. Jennifer asks why Gwen did this to Abigail. Abigail thinks she knows but doesn’t want to say until she knows for sure. Jennifer questions Abigail not confronting Gwen about this. Abigail tells her that Ava told her there is so much more to know about Gwen and she wants it all, so Ava is forcing her to broker a deal for her with the district attorney or she won’t talk. Jennifer asks if Gwen has any idea. Abigail explains that Gwen tracked her down at the police station because she didn’t want her talking to Ava, but she told her that Ava wouldn’t tell her anything. Abigail says she can’t have Gwen going to Ava and telling her not to talk. Jennifer asks if this whole change in character has been act this whole time. Abigail worries about if Gwen is planning something else. Jennifer urges her not to let Gwen do anything else to her. Abigail assures that she will protect herself but she can’t do this unless she knows the whole truth. Gwen comes back in and questions the whole truth about what. Abigail claims that she was just talking about a source for a story. Gwen apologizes for interrupting but says she can’t get the zipper on her dress, so Abigail agrees to go help her with it.

Nancy asks if Clyde is turning down going to the wedding because he’s just not interested and assures that he doesn’t have to let her down easy. Clyde says life is too short for fooling around so he wouldn’t waste their time if he wasn’t interested. Nancy says she already likes him. Clyde says he likes her too but that’s another reason to stay away from the wedding because he doesn’t want to deal with a bunch of other people on their first date, he will want her all to himself.

After Jack and Xander leave, Craig remarks to Leo that Xander is not all that and assures he only has eyes for him as they kiss. Xander then returns to the door in just a towel which takes Craig back. Xander explains that he was out of shampoo and asks if they had any extra. Leo goes and gets them as Craig small talks with Xander to avoid staring at him. Leo gives Xander the shampoo. Xander says he will see them at the wedding and walks away. Craig then agrees with Leo that Xander is all that as they both stare as he walks away.

Brady and Chloe kiss and decide they are going to the wedding together so they are officially a thing. Chloe says she has to go get ready. Brady invites her to his room since the wedding is hours away. They continue kissing until Brady gets a text from Sonny, saying he and Chad met with Jackie Cox, and they have something on Leo.

Update written by Joseph

Nancy goes to see Bonnie at the Kiriakis Mansion and tells her that it’s an emergency as she needs some advice and didn’t have anywhere else to go. Bonnie wants to hear all about it. Nancy informs her that she and Craig have signed the divorce papers so now there is nothing stopping Leo from getting everything he wants.

In the town square, Leo opens the envelope he was handed and is shocked by the papers inside, saying it can’t be but it is – it’s a pre-nup. Leo questions getting this on their wedding day. Craig approaches and sees Leo looking upset.

Abigail answers a call at home from Ava and asks what she wants. Ava informs her that she has some information that Abigail might find quite interesting. Abigail asks what kind of information. Ava tells her to come to the police station and find out, adding that she’ll be glad she did.

At the Brady Pub, Nicole then orders a double espresso but is shocked to find that it is her ex-husband Eric working behind the counter. Nicole comments on having vivid dreams but Eric assures that he is really here.

Abigail goes to the interrogation room to see Ava. Abigail asks what Ava is doing here. Ava shows that she is handcuffed to the table and informs her that she was arrested by the police commissioner who she used to sleep with because he accused her of setting him up. Abigail says she never believed the planted evidence anyways but asks what it has to do with her. Ava says it’s a big misunderstanding and thinks Abigail can help her resolve it. Abigail asks if she wants her story in the Spectator. Ava wants her to talk to Melinda on her behalf because she can help her in return.

Gwen finds Gabi at the Bistro and says she was thinking of booking the place for their wedding celebration. Gwen informs Gabi that she and Xander are getting married today as part of a double wedding.

Craig tells Leo that they have a lot to do before walking down the aisle. Leo questions Craig giving him no warning or explanation for the pre-nup. Leo asks how he could ambush him with one on their wedding day. Leo guesses he believes what everyone said about him but Craig swears he’s never seen the pre-nup before. Leo asks where it came from then. Chloe appears and reveals it’s from her.

Nicole welcomes Eric back and they hug. Nicole asks when he got back to Salem. Eric says it was just this morning and Roman had paper work to get done, so he volunteered to watch the bar. Nicole asks why Eric came back and if he left the priesthood. Eric informs her that he’s still a priest, so she asks why he’s not wearing his collar. Eric explains that he only has to wear it when saying mass or performing a sacrament. Eric brings up how last time he was home was intense with Marlena’s exorcism and he had some free time so he got a plane to be with the people he loves. Eric says he misses his friends, his family, and Nicole.

Gabi and Gwen have a drink together. Gwen explains to Gabi that her old dear friend lives in Salem now and he’s in a rush to get married, so he suggested they do it together and he offered to pick up the tab. Gabi asks if it’s anyone she knows. Gwen reveals it’s Leo Stark. Gabi is shocked and says he tried to ruin Will and Sonny’s lives. Gabi hates Leo with a vengeance. Gwen knows he’s not perfect, but he’s her friend and she’s terribly fond of him. Gabi says she might be the only person who he is. Gwen says she’s heard Craig is mad at him too. Gwen decides they’ll agree to disagree because Leo is getting married, he’s a very good friend of hers, she’s marrying Xander and she wants everything to be perfect. Gabi thinks the Bistro would be a nice venue for the dinner after the ceremony. Gabi thought locking down a venue was the maid of honor’s job. Gwen reveals that it’s Abigail which shocks Gabi. Gwen says they are moving past everything they’ve been through. Gabi decides it’s none of her business. Gabi talks about being so happy and impressed with herself more than usual. Gwen asks what she has done. Gabi then admits to getting Ava Vitali arrested. Gabi laughs while Gwen looks worried.

Abigail questions how Ava can help her. Ava brings up how she and Chad were eager to find out who knocked Abigail out at the Airfield. Ava admits she might not have been completely upfront about not knowing anything. Ava brings up how last time she was here, Chad offered to go to bat for her with Melinda and get her a deal if she gave him a name, but she refused. Abigail guesses since Ava is willing to talk now means she’s guilty as hell. Ava argues that she’s been wrongly accused and needs a little assistance. Ava says if she tells Abigail who attacked her that night, then she takes it to Melinda and gets her a deal, they will both get justice.

Nancy talks to Bonnie how hard it was to sign the divorce papers but says Craig made every effort to help her through it by buying her a drink and telling her how much their love meant to him. Nancy adds that Craig then asked her to come to his wedding which Bonnie questions. Bonnie asks if Craig thought it would be fun for Nancy to attend his wedding to someone else. Nancy admits it would be horrible to see him marrying Leo, but she told him that she would think about it because she was kind of touched. Nancy says she cares about Craig and always will, so she needs her advice. Bonnie asks if she really needs to know her advice. Nancy guesses she already knows. Bonnie advises Nancy to just say no.

Craig questions why Chloe would do this. Chloe knew he would be busy with the wedding, so she had Justin take care of that for him. Chloe says if Leo is marrying Craig for love, he’d have no problem signing it. Chloe offers him a pen.

Eric asks Nicole how she and Holly have been. Nicole says she’s good and talks about Holly loving to sing. Nicole hopes he gets a chance to see her. Eric says he would love that. Eric mentions hearing that EJ got cleared of Sami’s kidnapping. Eric asks if she and EJ are still together. Nicole says they are not as she realized they were not right for each other. Eric is happy to hear that and says he wants her to be happy with whoever she’s with. Nicole then reveals that she is seeing Rafe. Eric calls Rafe a good man and notes that they have been friends for a really long time. Nicole says it’s turned in to something more. Eric asks how that happened if she doesn’t mind him asking.

Gwen questions Ava being arrested. Gabi says she made it happen so she will pay for framing her brother and for moving in with Jake to spite her. Gwen asks how she pulled that off. Gabi explains that she found the dirtbag that Ava paid to frame Rafe and he coughed up a recording of Ava admitting everything. Gabi talks about having a front row seat to Rafe arresting Ava. Gabi calls it karma and says Ava is probably at the police station and on her way to jail, then court, and prison where she hopes she will rot forever with no way out. Gabi wonders how desperate Ava must feel right now.

Abigail returns from talking to Melinda and tells Ava that she said not a chance which Ava questions. Abigail says that Ava framed the police commissioner which is a felony, while the person who hit her would only be charged with assault and it’s not nearly enough to interest Melinda. Ava argues that it wasn’t just assault, she was kidnapped, taken to a deserted island and held her captive. Abigail says she reminded Melinda of all of that, but she still thinks that Ava is a bigger fish than whoever knocked her out. Ava asks what if she told her that the person has committed more crimes since then. Abigail asks what other crimes. Ava thinks back to Gwen talking to her about helping Kristen break out of prison and then to Gwen telling her that she switched the antidote with another dose of the drug to use on Sarah. Ava assures Abigail that what this person has done will make them a much bigger fish than her. Abigail asks if she’s just jerking her around. Ava asks why she would do that when she wants to get out of here. Abigail asks who the person is then and what they have done. Abigail tells Ava not to waste her time and if she’s not going to spill right now, then she’s leaving. Abigail goes to leave the room but Ava stops her and agrees to tell her.

Bonnie tells Nancy that she cannot go to the wedding. Nancy knows it would be hard. Bonnie knows they had a drink but he broke her heart. Nancy argues that it really wasn’t his fault since he didn’t leave her because she wasn’t enough and he didn’t go for a younger woman to stroke his ego. Nancy understands he was dealing with his own sexual orientation. Bonnie guesses she’s been reading up on failed marriages. Nancy says reading has given her so much more empathy for what Craig is going through. Bonnie just wants to protect her from running in to the eye of the storm by attending her ex-husband’s wedding to someone she thinks is scum. Nancy feels she has to try to respect how Craig feels about Leo. Bonnie advises her to just try to get through this and move on with her life, but she can tell that Nancy won’t listen to her and she gets it since she loved Craig for most of her life. Bonnie suggests she think about it for a couple of days but Nancy reveals that the wedding is tonight which surprises Bonnie. Nancy then admits that she wants to go. Bonnie respects her decision. Nancy hopes that everyone doesn’t stare at her and think of her as the woman who’s husband left her for a man while she’s sitting there all alone. Bonnie suggests she not go alone then. Nancy responds that she has no choice since the wedding is tonight. Bonnie tells her to get herself a hot date to take with her. Nancy repeats that the wedding is tonight and asks where she would find a date on such short notice. Bonnie pulls out her phone and says they’ll find her a date right there.

Leo complains that he’s never been so insulted in his life as he and Craig aren’t even married yet and Chloe is talking about divorce. Chloe says that’s the entire point of a pre-nup and says there’s no better way to prove that Leo is marrying Craig for love and not money. Leo calls it a stupid document and would rather show it with love and devotion. Chloe guesses he won’t sign it then and asks what else Craig needs to prove that Leo is a gold digger. Craig stops her. Leo argues that Craig is as appalled as he is and tells Chloe what she can do with the pre-nup. Craig then tells Leo that he thinks he should sign it, which shocks him.

Gwen asks why Gabi would say Ava is desperate and if she said something. Gabi asks what she means. Gwen thinks back to Ava asking why she shouldn’t sacrifice Gwen to save herself. Gabi then asks Gwen if something is wrong.

Ava tells Abigail to make the offer to Melinda, then she will give the name and the crimes. Abigail doesn’t think Ava is in position to be calling the shots. Ava says she’s just asking her to work with her and she won’t walk away empty handed. Abigail argues that Ava won’t tell her who it is. Ava says if she did, she’d have nothing to bargain with. Abigail declares they are at a stand off then.

Nicole tells Eric that how her and Rafe got together is a really long story. Clyde comes out from the back and comments on Eric being back from Africa and that Roman told him he’d be working there. Eric questions Clyde working at the Pub. Clyde confirms that Roman gave him a job. Eric notes that Roman did not tell him that. Nicole thought Clyde was in prison. Clyde reveals that he got parole. Nicole questions why Roman would hire him after he kidnapped his great grandson. Clyde responds that Roman knows he did his time, paid for his crimes, and that he’s determined to be a better person from here on out. Clyde asks Eric if he believes in redemption.

Leo is offended that Craig needs him to sign a legal document to prove he loves him. Craig responds that he doesn’t need him to, but obviously his daughter does. Leo calls it very hurtful that Chloe doesn’t trust him. Craig is sick of everyone he knows coming after him with suspicions and warnings about Leo, but if him signing this stops all that, then he thinks he should do it. Craig asks Leo to do it for him.

Ava tells Abigail that she never gives away something for nothing. Abigail tells her to have fun in jail then and calls this a waste of time to come down here, except maybe she got a story for the Spectator that the ex-mafia princess was finally brought down by her ex-lover’s kid sister. Abigail then goes to leave but Ava reveals that the person who attacked Abigail was Gwen.

Gabi asks Gwen if she’s okay. Gwen claims she just realized she has a million things to do so she’s going home. Gabi thought Gwen was going to book the Bistro. Gwen says she’ll just have Abigail do it and rushes out.

Bonnie works on making Nancy a profile on a dating app. Nancy asks if this is how she met Justin. Bonnie says no but she’s helped plenty of her friends do this. Bonnie takes a photo of Nancy for her profile. Bonnie declares that Nancy will walk in to the wedding with a hot date and then Craig will rue the day that he let her go.

Chloe asks what Leo is waiting for. Leo tells her to give him a second as he’d like to know what he’s signing. Chloe calls it pretty standard. Leo reads the papers which state that in the case of a divorce, any residence would go to Craig while all bank accounts would revert to Craig’s accounts and there will be no alimony or cash settlement. Chloe states that none of that should matter if Leo is marrying Craig for love. Chloe apologizes to Craig for doing this to him on his wedding day but he has to know before he gets married. Leo then takes the pen and signs the papers. Leo then asks Chloe if she’s satisfied. Chloe is surprised that he signed it. Leo calls Craig the love of his life so there’s no reason not to sign a piece of paper because they are going to be husband and husband for eternity. Craig guesses he should make it official and signs it as well. Leo knows Chloe has had her issues with him and his past, but he hopes this finally convinces her that his love for Craig is real. Leo adds that maybe Chloe will even give them her blessing because that’s the only way Craig will be happy and all he wants is his happiness. Chloe guesses they want the same thing then. Chloe declares that Leo stepped up, so she will too. Chloe says that if Leo makes Craig happy then she’s happy and that’s all that matters. Chloe gives them her blessing and says she will take the documents to Justin to file and guesses she will see them later at the wedding. Craig hugs Chloe and thanks her, saying it means more to him than she knows. Chloe reluctantly hugs Leo as well and then walks away. Craig asks Leo if he’s upset with him.

Bonnie shows Nancy how to use the dating app. They go over some guys. Nancy says one is too young, one is too old, and no doctors. Nancy points out one having a nice smile but Bonnie notes that he has no hair and she can’t show up at the wedding with just anybody. Bonnie tells her that she found one who is recently back on the market like her, is family oriented, and likes to cook. Bonnie shows him to Nancy and she approves.

Abigail asks Ava if she was right that Gwen knocked her out that day. Ava adds that there is so much more. Abigail asks what else Gwen did and if there are other victims. Ava agrees to tell her everything she wants to know in detail, but Melinda needs to hear it first and only after she gets her immunity. Ava tells Abigail that this is her chance to make her sister pay for her sins. Ava declares that if Abigail gets her the deal, she will sing like a canary. Abigail declares that she will be back and storms out.

Eric confirms that he does believe in redemption. Clyde says Roman does too which is why he hired him and now he’s paying it back by trying to do a good job and earn an honest living. Nicole asks if he even knows what that means. Clyde gets why some people won’t give him a second chance. Nicole brings up Clyde trying to blow up the entire town. Clyde feels there’s no use in looking in the past as he’s all about looking forward and doing everything he can to be a better man. Clyde says he didn’t mean to interrupt them, so he’ll get on with his break. Clyde tells them to enjoy themselves and that it was good to see Eric again. Clyde walks away while Nicole questions Clyde expecting anyone to believe that he’s changed after everything he’s done. Nicole then thinks Eric must think she’s a hypocrite after all she has done and the people she has hurt. Eric says no, but like Clyde said, it’s about working harder and moving forward. Eric reminds Nicole that she was going to tell him about her and Rafe. Nicole guesses she can tell him everything since he knows the worst about her. Eric assures that he still cares about her. Nicole is grateful for that. Eric tells her to talk to him. Nicole explains that she and Rafe have been friends for a long time and he was there for her when she and Eric split. Nicole adds that in October, they slept together but he was with Ava, who found out and tried to ruin Rafe’s life by framing him for a crime he didn’t commit. Nicole says that just yesterday, Gabi found proof that Ava set Rafe up and she’s been arrested. Eric asks if Ava no longer being a threat means there’s nothing to stop Nicole and Rafe from living happily ever after. Nicole guesses so which Eric questions. Nicole says she’s just a little skeptical of that phrase for obvious reasons. Eric says he is too and says they can skip the ever after part, so he just asks if Nicole is happy. She confirms that she is. Eric says he’s glad as that’s all he wants for her. Nicole decides she should get to work and thanks him for the coffee which Eric says is on the house. Nicole tells him that it was good to see him. Eric says the same as Nicole then exits the Pub.

Nancy starts to worry about letting Bonnie talk her in to the dating app. Bonnie reminds her to be confident and tells her to work on her attitude. Bonnie says any man would be proud to have Nancy on his arm. Bonnie encourages Nancy to try the dating app more but Nancy says she didn’t see anyone else she was interested in. Nancy then ends up matching with the guy she chose.

Clyde sits outside the Brady Pub with his phone and smiles, revealing that he is the man who matched with Nancy.

Gabi finishes her drink and declares that she’s done and so is Ava as nothing can save her now…

Ava says to herself that she’s sorry to Gwen since she doesn’t have any friends and she hates to lose her, but it was Gwen or her so she asks what choice she really had.

Gwen arrives at the police station disguised in a hat and coat. She tries to sneak in to the interrogation room but is caught by Abigail.

Update written by Joseph

Sonny goes to see Chad at the DiMera Mansion. Chad assumes since Sonny is still in Salem, that means he took Victor up on his offer to become the new CEO of Titan. Sonny says he actually hasn’t talked to Will about it yet. Chad asks if he’s afraid to tell him. Sonny explains that Will is taking care of Arianna and he has work deadlines, so he doesn’t want to drop it all on him on a zoom call. Chad suggests Sonny go home and tell Will. Sonny responds that he has to take care of Leo first. Chad asks if they haven’t spent enough time and energy on Leo. Sonny says not until Leo Stark’s life is as screwed up as he made his.

Gwen finishes a call with Leo about their double wedding. Xander comes out of the bathroom and asks about Gwen’s call. Gwen tells him that it was her friend Matty and informs Xander that he has rented out the Horton Town Square for their wedding. Xander says he can’t wait to meet this guy. Gwen insists that he’s going to love him. Gwen guesses their wedding day hasn’t brought any bad luck. Gwen declares that tonight they will get married and start living the rest of their lives, happily ever after as they kiss.

Leo runs in to Abigail in the town square. Leo calls her a backstabber. Abigail tries to walk away but Leo stops her and says that since they are both going to be living in Salem, they need to set some ground rules.

Jake wakes up on his air mattress and notes that his back pain is gone until he tries to get up. Jake calls out to Ava, asking where she is as he needs her help. Jake wonders where the hell Ava went.

Nicole has a nightmare about Ava barging in on her and Rafe in bed with a gun.

Chad tells Sonny that he loves him like a brother, but he cannot ask him to go after Leo again. Sonny says he won’t have to because this time, they are taking a different approach. Chad tells him that he doesn’t want to be apart of this anymore. Sonny complains that they don’t have much time since Nancy signed the divorce papers, so Craig and Leo are planning on getting married as soon as possible. Sonny calls it sad that Chloe decided there’s nothing else she can do about it. Sonny says he and Brady are not so sure. Sonny adds that Brady came to him with interesting information that he thinks could spell the end of the Leo Stark reign of terror.

Abigail suggests she and Leo stay as far away from each other as possible. Leo mocks Abigail acting with Chad. Abigail brings up Leo blackmailing Sonny in to marrying him. Leo is tired of everyone flinging his past in his face. Leo brings up how Abigail and Chad were separated when he met her and she was living in Boston. Leo asks how she would feel if someone took advantage of that situation and insinuate themselves in Chad’s bed. Abigail points out that Leo did try to take advantage and crawled in to Chad’s bed while he was sleeping. Leo argues that what he tried to do doesn’t matter because it didn’t work and Chad only has eyes for her, which is how he and Craig feel. Leo declares that their joyous double wedding will be the happiest day of Craig’s life. Abigail questions a double wedding. Leo reveals that he’s sharing his special day with his BFF. Abigail questions him having a friend. Leo calls her a snide bitch and informs her that her name is Gwen. Abigail declares that Leo and Gwen being BFFs makes a sickening sort of sense.

Xander tells Gwen that they can’t get married today and asks about the cake and other things. Gwen reminds him that she ordered the cake from Sweet Bits Bakery. Xander asks about wedding invitations and flowers. Gwen says that Matty took care of arrangements and they don’t really have any guests to notify. Xander asks about his tuxedo. Gwen tells him to rent one and she’s on her dress. Xander brings up Jack being his best man and he told Jack that the wedding is next week. Gwen reveals that she spoke to Jack last night after he did and he already booked a flight this morning and is on the plane as they speak. Xander guesses everything is ready then. Gwen says except for maybe the groom. Gwen feels Xander was just coming up with reasons not to get married, so she asks if he’s getting cold feet.

Nicole wakes up from her nightmare in a panic and tells Rafe about it. Rafe assures it was just a nightmare and that nobody is going to come barging in. Gabi then opens the door, startling Nicole and causing Rafe to grab his gun but Gabi tells him not to shoot. Rafe questions what the hell she’s doing. Gabi responds that she’s doing his job for him and that he’s lucky to have her as a sister. Gabi apologizes to Nicole for barging in. Gabi sits down on the bed and plays the recording of Ava planning to set Rafe up with planted evidence. Gabi then asks what Rafe is waiting for and tells him to arrest Ava.

Ava comes home where Jake questions where she’s been. Ava informs him that she went to the store because he didn’t have many groceries. Jake says when he woke up and saw she wasn’t there, he was worried that she was up to no good. Ava asks if he thought she was up to killing Rafe and Nicole. Ava admits it crossed her mind but instead has decided to take her rage out on making dinner. Ava asks if he has any pans. Jake says he can dig one up for her, but first he’s going to need her to help him up because he can’t move.

Sonny informs Chad that Chloe and Brady heard Leo on the phone, gloating about his victory and the person he was talking to was named Jackie. Chad recognizes the name as Jackie Cox. Sonny continues that Jackie was Leo’s source who was supposed to lead Will to the emerald. Chad asks if he thinks Leo and Jackie were working together all along to switch the emerald. Sonny is not sure but points out that they were working together before, so maybe they still are now. Sonny says if Leo is trying to scam Craig out of his money, he bets that Jackie Cox is in on it and he also thinks Jackie could be the key to getting Craig to see the light.

Leo questions how Abigail knows Gwen. Abigail reveals that Gwen is her half-sister. Leo finds that hard to believe since Gwen is fun. Abigail tells Leo that he can ask Gwen about how she tried to destroy her life. Leo guesses she had a good reason and says he knows Gwen intimately. Leo says he charted their horoscopes and it was destined they would meet. Abigail asks where Leo met Gwen. Leo tells her that it was in Philadelphia and he knew he loved Gwen from before he even saw her. Leo says they saved each other. Leo senses that Abigail and Gwen are not close which she confirms. Leo says that is fine with him if it means she won’t be coming to their weddings or raining anyone’s parades. Abigail then reveals to Leo that she will be there because she is Gwen’s matron of honor.

Xander assures Gwen that he’s not having second thoughts about marrying her, but he is having second thoughts about getting married on the spur of the moment in an event planned by someone else in a double wedding with strangers. Gwen argues that Matty is not a stranger, he’s her friend, and they can’t afford it on their own. Xander does want her to have the wedding of her dreams. Gwen asks if this is about the wedding or Sarah. Xander insists it’s not about Sarah as Maggie is taking care of her now and she’s getting the best treatment, so now it’s time for them to have their life together. Xander and Gwen then kiss.

Jake and Ava eat together. Jake has trouble getting up from his chair again. Ava decides that she is taking the air mattress tonight so he can sleep in the bed. Jake doesn’t want her waking up feeling like he does now. Ava says that won’t be a problem because she’s been taking yoga for years. Ava suggests maybe they should get Jake in to a yoga class but he says no way. Ava asks if he’s afraid. Jake says he just needs to get out of his chair. Ava helps Jake up again.

Chad asks how Sonny proposes they get the information if Jackie Cox has it. Sonny says he asked Will. Chad guesses that Will said to start with google because he’s also married to a star reporter. Sonny googles Jackie Cox and finds her website, feeling it should be easy to track her down. Sonny adds that he could ask Victor for the jet since he wants something from him, so they could be in and out in a couple hours. Sonny tells Chad that he needs him to come with him.

Abigail questions Leo and Craig having a double wedding with Gwen and Xander. Leo thinks it will be mind blowing. Abigail asks if anyone has ever told him how most Salem weddings end up. Gwen joins Leo and questions Abigail knowing him. Abigail confirms that he was just telling her all about the double wedding. Gwen says she was going to call Abigail and reveals that it’s tonight which surprises Abigail. Abigail says she is free but that Leo hates her. Leo claims there is no one he’d rather have there. Leo asks where Gwen’s husband to be is as Xander then arrives. Xander sees Leo and questions what this sneaky little bastard is doing back here. Leo questions Gwen not telling him. Xander asks what is going on here. Gwen reveals to Xander that this is her really good friend Matty Cooper. Xander argues that he’s Leo Stark. Leo says they are one in the same and tells Xander that it’s wonderful to see him again, looking fantastic as ever.

Rafe finishes a call and informs Nicole that Melinda is on board with filing charges once the warrant goes through and they bring Ava in. Rafe adds that Melinda had plenty of questions about the tape, so he pleaded ignorance. Nicole is surprised that Melinda wanted to do this since she prosecuted the case against him, so she will look like an idiot when it comes out that Ava played her. Rafe says that’s all the more reason that Melinda wants to take Ava down. Nicole worries about Ava being more rattled than she already is. Rafe argues that Ava will keep making threats and giving her nightmares which is no way for them to go through their lives. Rafe declares that he won’t let Ava ruin what they have waited so long to find as they kiss.

Ava gives Jake another massage until Gabi walks in and remarks that she sees Ava is earning her keep.

Chad questions Sonny wanting him to drop everything to go to New York with him so they can maybe track someone down that maybe has information to maybe bring down Leo. Sonny knows it sounds crazy but it will only take a couple hours. Chad thought they agreed that it wasn’t healthy to keep obsessing about Leo. Sonny argues that he’s not obsessing. Chad reminds Sonny that he just said Chloe had accepted that Craig and Leo are getting married, so if Craig wants to screw up his life, that’s his business. Sonny disagrees and says it is all of their business.

Gwen questions Xander and Leo knowing each other. Leo tells Gwen that he’s envious because he used to have the biggest crush on Xander. Leo adds that he still haunts the occasional dream but now he only has eyes for Craig. Gwen points out that Leo didn’t have a chance with Xander since he doesn’t play for his team. Leo remarks that he almost did which Gwen questions. Leo tells her not to worry as nothing happened. Xander questions having a double wedding with him and says he doesn’t think so. Abigail jokes that she wants some popcorn. Xander complains that Leo was just coming on to him. Gwen laughs it off as being years ago and they have both moved on so it’s no big deal, but Xander refuses to do this.

Jake tells Gabi that it’s not her business but he threw his back out. Gabi continues to mock him being with Ava. Jake remarks that she’s lucky his back is hurt or else he would throw her interfering ass out on to the curb. Jake asks who the hell Gabi thinks she is, barging in to his place like this. Gabi responds that she’s looking out for his best interests because Ava is poison. Jake asks if she had his best interests in mind when she screwed him at DiMera. Jake tells Ava to call the cops and tell them that someone broke in to his apartment. Gabi argues that the door was unlocked and she’s just here as a courtesy call. Gabi says she won’t interfere and cause any more trouble for them. Gabi admits that she overreacted when she saw Ava on top of Jake, but when she first found out Ava moved in, she really thought Ava was doing it to get under her skin. Gabi has decided to not let her hatred get the better of her, so she believes the explanation. Gabi says she won’t intervene because they have their lives and she has her life to live. Jake asks what the catch is since it’s very unlike her to play it cool which makes him think it’s a trick and the other shoe is about to drop. Gabi asks what that could possibly be as Rafe then knocks on the door, saying to open up as the police.

Sonny reluctantly agrees that this is not Chad’s problem as he doesn’t really care about Leo or the whole Craig Wesley fiasco. Sonny says he’s sorry he bothered him. Chad stops him and says he doesn’t care about Leo but Sonny is his best friend, so he agrees to go with him. Sonny thanks Chad and knows he seems over the top about all of this but if he knows Leo, he is champing at the bit to get Craig’s ring on his finger and once that happens, it will be a hell of a lot harder to get rid of him.

Gwen questions Xander saying he’s not going through with the wedding. Xander clarifies that he won’t stand up with Leo. Xander doesn’t get why Gwen is so dead set on doing this today. Gwen worries that Xander has cold feet. Abigail says they can give her a call to let her know if the wedding is on or off as she walks away. Gwen apologizes as she didn’t know Xander had a beef with Leo. Leo calls that an interesting choice of words. Xander warns him to watch it. Leo argues that Xander led him on and took advantage of his interest in getting to know him better to find out which leverage Sonny had to then use himself. Leo explains to Gwen that Xander drugged him and led him to believe they slept together when he was really down the hall with Sarah Horton. Leo remarks that Xander used him, so he’s the one who shouldn’t abide having Xander at his wedding but he’s found his own true love, so he has a new found ability to forgive and forget. Gwen tells Xander that if Leo can put it in the past, she asks if Xander can too for her.

Gabi answers the door for Rafe. Jake asks what the hell is going on here. Ava guesses the other shoe is dropping. Rafe says he could’ve sent another officer to do this but he wanted to do it himself. Rafe then handcuffs Ava and informs her that she is under arrest for framing him.

Abigail goes home to the DiMera Mansion and greets Sonny, who informs her that he just came to ask Chad for a favor again. Chad explains that Sonny wants him to go to New York with him to see if they can get Jackie Cox to spill what she knows about Leo. Chad invites Abigail to come with them but Abigail doesn’t think she can do a story about Leo since she’s now personally involved and she has a lot to do before tonight. Chad asks what tonight is. Abigail reveals that Gwen and Xander are getting married, she’s the maid of honor, and it’s now a double wedding with Leo and Craig. Sonny can’t believe it’s tonight. Abigail knows it’s hard to believe but apparently Leo and Gwen are BFFs.

Gwen tells Xander that they have waited all this time and she just wants to be his wife. Xander asks if this is really her idea of a dream wedding. Gwen says that it is as she doesn’t have many friends but Leo is the only person besides Xander who really knows her and still likes her. Gwen insists to Xander that this is her dream wedding, just four people in the town square saying they don’t give a damn what anyone else thinks because they are going to be happy in spite of all of them. Gwen repeats that it’s her dream wedding. Xander questions if it’s really what she wants. Gwen repeats that it is, so Xander agrees to it as they hug. Leo gets up and joins their hug.

Chad, Abigail, and Sonny talk about the double wedding. Sonny wonders if Gwen knows what Leo is up to but Abigail says that Gwen didn’t know he was in town until yesterday. Abigail wishes she could go with them to New York but she promised to stand up for Gwen and she thinks it will mean a lot to Jack. Sonny worries about it being tonight while Chad points out the clock is really ticking. Abigail notes that Xander didn’t look happy about sharing his wedding day with Leo, so she can’t say for sure that he’s going to go along with it.

After Rafe escorts Ava out in handcuffs, Jake asks if Gabi is just going to stand there and gloat. Gabi tells Jake to just admit that he tried to make her jealous by having Ava move in. Jake says he was just helping out an old friend. Gabi remarks that Ava is his old mob boss and is friends with no one. Jake calls Ava a better friend than Gabi is and tells her to get out. Gabi remarks that Jake will have the whole bed to himself to watch his back now. Jake warns Gabi to watch her back because when Ava beats these charges, she will be pretty upset with her.

Abigail wishes Chad and Sonny luck, joking with them not to have any threesomes. Chad jokes that they are just a couple of best friends looking for a drag queen. Sonny asks Abigail to do whatever she can to stall the wedding. Abigail agrees to try her best but she thinks even if they tie the knots, she doesn’t think either marriage is going to last. Sonny hopes so and then exits.

Gwen says they better get a move on because Jack’s flight is landing soon. Gwen asks Xander to pick him up which he agrees to do. Xander tells Leo that he’ll see him at the altar as he walks away. Leo remarks that Gwen is a lucky woman. Gwen says she has a million things to do so she has to go. Gwen walks a way and then a man delivers an envelope to Leo. Leo opens it and is shocked by the papers inside, saying it can’t be but it is – it’s a pre-nup.

Rafe brings Ava to the interrogation room and says they do have iron clad evidence against her. Rafe informs her that her man flipped and said she strong-armed him and they got it all on tape. Ava wants her one phone call and some privacy. Rafe says the less time he spends with her, the better as he exits the room. Ava picks up the phone to make a call.

Gabi sits at the bistro having a drink and toasts to herself as she did what the cops and mob families haven’t been able to do without breaking a sweat in taking down Ava once and for all.

Abigail answers a call at home from Ava and asks what she wants. Ava informs her that she has some information that Abigail might find quite interesting..
