Summer: Oh, it is the perfect autumn night tonight.

Kyle: Oh, it sure is.

Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.

Kyle: Oh, he’s with Harrison. They’ve lined up all the toy soldiers in his room, and there’s an epic battle going on now.

Nick: I bet the two of them are having more fun than the rest of us combined.

Noah: I think you’re probably right. I could tell in Milan how much Jack loves that kid.

Summer: Oh, yeah. No, he totally loves being a grandpa.

Phyllis: You’ve bonded with Harrison, too.

Summer: Oh, my gosh, yes. No, he is such a doll. Honestly, whatever fears I had about being a stepmom have just completely gone away.

Phyllis: That’s great.

Kyle: Yeah, summer’s a natural at this whole parenting thing.


Noah: No one’s worried about you not having room in your life for Harrison. We’re more worried about you not having room in your closet for all the swag you’re bringing home from Marchetti.

Summer: Oh! No, okay, I have a simple solution to that problem. See, I wear them once, and then I just give them away.

Noah: Wait. Seriously?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, no! No, I wouldn’t do that. You are so gullible.

Kyle: He’s right, though. We need to build more closets for all of our shoes.

Summer: You are lying.

Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.

Summer: No.

Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

Philip goes to see Chloe at the Kiriakis Mansion and brings her flowers as he apologizes for their misunderstanding about her and Brady hugging. Chloe says he was a complete ass. Philip repeats that he’s sorry and gives her the flowers, hoping for a fresh start so they can water their tree together. Chloe instead takes his flowers and dumps them in the trash can.

Brady and Nicole go to work at Basic Black where they find a big arrangement of roses. Brady guesses it’s Philip’s latest grand gesture to Chloe but Nicole finds that they are actually for her from EJ.

Johnny enters the living room of the DiMera Mansion where EJ greets him. EJ remarks that no investment is more important than his. Johnny questions EJ going from laughing at his idea of making a movie to not only investing but insisting on playing John Black. EJ claims he’s just been bitten by the acting bug but Johnny guesses that EJ wants to stick it to Chad.

Chad and Abigail wake up in bed together and kiss.

Abigail and Rafe get up to find Gabi has made breakfast. Gabi gives Ava her coffee the way she likes it. Rafe jokingly questions who she is and what she has done with his sister.

Chad knows that just because they spent the night together, it doesn’t mean everything is resolved but he hopes she feels as good as he does about it. Abigail talks about them reading the script really getting to her. Abigail states that Chad being in her bed and in her life is exactly where she wants him to be as they continue kissing. They say I love you to each other. Abigail brings up Chad making a great John Black and asks again if he meant it when he said he was interested in the role. Chad confirms that he did. Abigail reminds him that EJ threatened to make trouble for him at DiMera if he took on this project. Chad says to let him try because he’s not afraid of EJ.

EJ asks Johnny what Chad has to do with him playing John Black. Johnny says it would get under Chad’s skin to have love scenes with Abigail as Marlena. EJ calls it motivation while Johnny tells him to be honest that the only reason he’s even interested in the project is because there’s something in it for him in messing with Chad. EJ remarks that he could take his money and walk if his intentions aren’t pure enough for him. Johnny argues that Abigail and Chad would freak out and says if they both walk out, he’ll lose his leading lady and an investor. EJ says they won’t let them quit then. Johnny questions what the alternative is. EJ opens his briefcase and presents Johnny with contracts, noting that once Chad and Abigail sign and are locked in, then he can deliver the bad news.

Brady remarks that EJ must be overcompensating and asks what the card says. Nicole reads that EJ thanks her for a lovely evening and hopes they can do it again soon. Brady asks if she’s falling for the act, reminding her that he treated her like garbage when they were married. Nicole calls that a long time ago. Brady says that’s irrelevant and insists that EJ is trying to suck her back in to a bad situation, so he can’t believe she’s going to fall for it. Nicole tells Brady to shut up.

Philip asks Chloe to hear him out. Chloe asks how many times she’s supposed to accept the same apology from him. Chloe reminds him that their tree was a symbol of him fixing his behavior and she started to believe they could have a real chance together but it could never work out like this. Philip admits he was a jealous idiot. Chloe says that doesn’t change anything and remarks that if the tree means that much to him, he can go water it herself. Chloe then storms out of the room. Jake walks in and remarks that it looks like Chloe is pretty angry with Philip, which makes two of them.

Rafe questions this being real. Gabi talks about Ava wanting to make peace. Rafe asks what’s going on. Gabi claims that she just realized they were right about living together in peace. Rafe agrees and hopes it’s the start of a better relationship between Gabi and Ava because that would make life a lot easier for them. Rafe mentions promising the guys in the squad room that he would bring them Sweet Bits so he has to go, but says they will celebrate this truce tonight with Jake. Gabi says she can’t wait as Rafe then exits. Gabi then calls Ava a lying hag and accuses her of giving Philip the dirt on Jake. Ava claims not to know what she’s talking about. Gabi brings up the file on Jake’s past in the mob and asks if she thought she wouldn’t figure it out. Ava claims it wasn’t her. Gabi says trying to blackmail her in to signing over Gabi Chic has her stink all over it. Ava then asks what she’s going to do about it.

Jake questions Philip using his past to blackmail Gabi to sign her company over to him and says it won’t work since he didn’t kill Jed Zanetti, Carmine did. Philip responds that it would be Jake’s word against Carmine’s so he can go get ready for court. Philip says it doesn’t change the fact that Jake is nothing but a thug. Jake calls him a spoiled rich kid who is so desperate to feel powerful that he’ll fire Gabi from her own company. Jake says if he wants to fire someone, fire him. Philip agrees and fires Jake.

Johnny questions EJ wanting him to lock Chad in as an investor before announcing that EJ is playing Abigail’s romantic lead. EJ calls it good business while Johnny calls it underhanded. EJ says if he doesn’t like his deal, he can find another investor. Johnny argues that EJ knows there’s no one else and he’s not going to make the movie unless Lucas, Chad, and EJ invest. EJ asks if they have a deal then. Chad and Abigail walk in. EJ says they were just discussing the movie so they are right on time as he took the time to draw up contracts on Johnny’s behalf. Chad questions EJ helping Johnny after all the crap he gave him about his movie. EJ explains that Roman had a change of heart and pulled out. EJ claims that after witnessing his son’s immense dedication to the project, he felt compelled to help him out, so he’s now a full investor along with Lucas and Chad and couldn’t be more excited. Chad asks if this is true. Johnny acknowledges needing all the help he can get. Johnny gives Abigail the contract to look over. Abigail mentions not doing it for the money as he’s family and there’s nothing she and Chad want more than to help make his project a reality.

Nicole appreciates Brady’s concern but questions him giving relationship advice after he messed up his chances with Chloe. Brady argues that he didn’t mess up his chances with Chloe, he just waited too long to express how he felt about her and Philip beat him to the punch. Nicole points out that would not have happened if he listened to her, so she’s not inclined to take his advice. Brady tells her to do whatever she wants with EJ and promises not to say another word about it. Brady points out that he hasn’t said anything about Chloe and Philip and he gives his blessing to them. Chloe walks in and remarks that she doesn’t need his blessing.

Jake tells Philip that he doesn’t give a damn if he fires him. Philip remarks that it doesn’t look good on Titan to have a murderous thug employed. Jake brings up Philip laundering money for Ava and now judging him. Jake adds that he got himself out of the mob while Philip needed his dad’s help. Philip reminds Jake that only one of them is facing serious jail time, but there’s a very simple solution. Jake tells him to go to Hell. Philip argues that if Gabi signs over Gabi Chic then Jake stays a free man.

Gabi tells Ava that she will never surrender Gabi Chic to Philip, especially when Jake is innocent. Ava questions Jake telling her that. Gabi says she believes him. Ava asks if it really matters since Jake had no problem helping dispose of Jed Zanetti’s body, so killer or not, he’s going to do some prison time for that. Gabi doesn’t get it since this is between her and Philip and asks what is in it for Ava. Ava explains that for months, Gabi has done nothing but try to break up her and Rafe, so when Philip needed a hand, she decided to show Gabi what it feels like when someone tries to take away something you love. Gabi responds that she’ll never take Jake away from her. Ava says she’s talking about what Gabi really loves, her company that she grew. Ava tells her to imagine Gabi Chic rising from the ashes as Ava Chic.

Abigail looks over her contract and says everything looks to be in order. Johnny asks if they shall make it official. Abigail can’t wait to get started. EJ shows Chad that he also drew up contracts for them and Lucas as producers. EJ explains that they all invest the same amount of money and will share the profits if the movie makes money. Chad looks over the contract and agrees to sign it. EJ signs the contract as well. Chad then suggests Johnny have EJ draw up another contract because he wants to play John Black. Abigail acknowledges that Chad was helping her run lines and was pretty wonderful. Johnny questions Chad wanting to play John and says he had no idea. Chad informs him that he told EJ, so he questions EJ not mentioning it. EJ claims he didn’t think it was his news to deliver. Johnny says he’s sure Chad would be great but EJ mentions that he already has a contract for the role of John Black. Chad asks to sign it but EJ reveals that he already signed it, so he will be playing John Black opposite Abigail. Chad questions what EJ is trying to pull. EJ thought he’d be pleased that he’s finally giving his son the support. Chad complains that EJ is doing this to screw with him. EJ argues that it’s always about him. Abigail says this is so wrong and he knows it. EJ is sorry that she doesn’t like it but there’s nothing they can do. Chad tells Johnny that EJ isn’t doing this to support what’s best for him and suggests he rip up EJ’s contract to solve the problem.

Nicole runs in to Rafe outside the Brady Pub. Rafe mentions bringing donuts to the police station. Nicole says she’s on her way to the bakery too but Rafe says he cleaned them out. Rafe offers to spare a donut for a friend and suggests they sit together. Nicole reminds him of their agreement. Rafe says they don’t have to make it a whole thing. Nicole jokes about never turning down a donut and admits she’s in no rush to get back to the office.

Chloe tells Brady about Philip seeing them together at the river, hugging in front of their tree, so he went ballistic. Brady talks about how they were there with his daughter and they were only there to water their tree. Chloe tells him that she explained how Brady finally accepted she and Philip were a couple and he was going to respect that, but Philip didn’t believe it was innocent and then Maggie came in so she left. Chloe declares that she and Philip are now barely speaking.

Jake tells Philip that he’s not going to prison and Gabi’s not signing her company over. Philip guesses he hasn’t been paying attention. Philip explains that he knows they’ve been scheming for weeks to get him fired from Titan so they could take over. Philip says they key logger move wasn’t too bright. Jake argues that he has no proof. Philip says that he does have proof that Jake was involved in a murder in Philly. Jake questions him going low enough to use it. Philip responds that Gabi started this, so he’s just fighting back.

Gabi argues that there is no chance in Hell that she’d give her company to Philip so that Ava can run it. Ava asks if she’d rather send Jake to prison for 20 years. Gabi argues that he’s not going to prison. Ava tells her that she can’t have it both ways, it’s either her business or her man. Gabi remarks that the only person who should be worried about losing their man is Ava, as she questions what she thinks Rafe is going to do when he finds out she’s trying to steal her company.

Chloe understands that seeing her in Brady’s arms could upset Philip, but she doesn’t understand why he wanted to play a stupid game by asking her to go water their tree together, knowing that she just did. Chloe admits she should’ve just told Philip the truth but she’s so tired of his jealousy and being afraid of setting him off. Brady assures that none of this is her fault. Chloe calls it her mistake to not listen to Brady about Philip in the first place, so he can go ahead and say “I told you so”.

Jake questions Philip turning to Ava for help as fighting back. Philip points out that Jake has a partner in crime, so he asks why he shouldn’t too. Jake argues that he and Gabi are a team while Ava is a viper who isn’t helping him out of the goodness of her heart but because she hates Gabi. Philip says it happens to serve his purpose. Jake questions Philip thinking he’s in control when Ava would feed him to the wolves to save herself and he won’t even see it coming.

Ava tells Gabi that Rafe would be furious if he found out that she helped Philip steal Gabi’s company, but he isn’t going to find out, because if she goes running to Rafe then she’ll have to tell him that Jake was involved in a murder that he helped over up. Ava asks what the police commissioner will say about that. Gabi asks if she thinks Rafe won’t be suspicious of Ava suddenly running her company. Ava says not if Gabi tells him that running the company no longer sparked joy. Gabi says Rafe will never believe that. Ava tells her to make him believe it by telling him that she wants to focus on her life with Jake. Ava suggests Gabi jump on a plane and move in with her daughter. Gabi warns her to shut up about her daughter. Ava tells Gabi that the reason doesn’t matter as long as she signs Gabi Chic over to Philip and then he will need someone to run it and hire her. Ava thinks Rafe will be relieved knowing that someone close to the family is running Gabi Chic. Gabi remarks that she doesn’t know Rafe as well as she thinks then.

Rafe and Ava have donuts together. Nicole is still shocked that Julie turned over the recipe to Sweet Bits. Rafe mentions preferring the atmosphere at Sweet Bits lately. Nicole acknowledges the other night at Julie’s Place being awkward. Rafe hopes she and EJ didn’t leave early because of he and Ava. Nicole admits it was because of him as she’s trying to stick to their agreement to keep their distance. Nicole jokes that he got to enjoy a fabulous bottle of wine that EJ ordered. Rafe points out that Ava enjoyed it but he had beer. Rafe questions accepting anything from EJ and still doesn’t understand why she was with EJ but stops and says it’s none of his business and that Nicole already knows how he feels. Rafe questions why Nicole would do anything with EJ after the way he has treated her.

EJ argues that Johnny wouldn’t have hired him unless he thought he would make an excellent John Black. Chad accuses EJ of strong arming him in to this and tells Johnny to do the right thing. Johnny says he’s sorry but the decision has already been made. Abigail argues that Johnny has creative control so he can un make the decision. Johnny points out that he’d lose all the money he needs to make the movie. Chad offers to give him the money but EJ points out that the contracts have been signed so he suggests they all focus on working together to make the best film possible. Abigail calls that impossible. EJ says the show must go on. Johnny tells Abigail that he’s sorry but promises it will be a professional set with no egos. Johnny repeats to Chad that he’s sorry but it was the only way he could get the movie made, so it’s not personal, just business.

Gabi argues that Rafe knows better than anybody how much Gabi Chic means to her, so if she signs it over to Philip, he will know that she has been blackmailed. Gabi calls the idea of Ava running her company ridiculous since she has zero experience. Ava points out that she hired Jake and his resume is not that much different, though he is turning out to be quite the liability. Ava guesses that Gabi just figured out that it’s over, and she’s won.

Philip tells Jake that he’s not naïve about Ava. Jake points out that Philip was under Ava before and came back for more, so he sure is stupid. Philip gets that Ava is dangerous but calls this different. Jake argues that this is the mob and brings up that Jed Zanetti crossed the wrong person so Carmine didn’t hesitate to take him out. Jake warns that if he plays, there’s a price. Philip asks if that’s a threat. Jake tells him to take it however he wants, but reminds him that last time he got mixed up with the mob, Brady took a bullet that had Philip’s name on it but he might not be so lucky next time. Jake then walks out of the room.

Brady tells Chloe that he would never said I told you so and he’s genuinely sorry for what she’s going through. Chloe thanks him for not rubbing it in but guesses he was right all along that Philip is the same jealous jerk he was in high school and no matter what she tells him, he can never get over the fact that she and Brady were once in love. Brady admits that what they had was intense, wonderful, and passionate. Brady says they weren’t just in love, they couldn’t get enough of one another. Brady states that if he was Philip, he might be having a hard time with it all as well.

EJ tells Chad that if he’s still determined to be in the film, perhaps he could play Roman. Abigail holds Chad back from going after him and says that’s exactly what EJ wants. EJ thanks her for maintaining the peace and says he’s very much looking forward to working with her. Abigail wishes she could say the same but says she will do her best to give a good performance but it just got a lot more difficult. EJ brings up that they’ve had their own special chemistry which they will no doubt channel in to winning performances as Salem’s star-crossed lovers.

Nicole tells Rafe that EJ is her boss, so she can’t just say no to his invitation. Rafe argues that it wasn’t a business dinner. Nicole then admits it was a date and maybe she had suppressed memories of how EJ treated her in the past, but their marriages imploded and they are both alone so maybe this was her way of getting past the misery to feel attractive and alive again. Rafe argues that Nicole can do so much better than EJ. Nicole agrees and remarks that if she had it her way, she would’ve gone to dinner with Rafe instead.

EJ says he better get to learning his lines as he wouldn’t want to let down his leading lady, especially for the conference room scene. EJ suggests method acting and laughs as he then exits the room. Chad questions Johnny knowing what EJ was up to and letting them sign the contracts. Johnny argues that he didn’t know Chad wanted to play John. Chad shouts that this is not what it’s about as Johnny scammed them in to signing the contracts, so he could get what he wanted, integrity be damned. Chad remarks that EJ would be proud. Johnny says he has to finish casting the rest of his movie and walks out. Chad calls it unbelievable. Abigail suggests not being so hard on Johnny. Chad says he’ll try to remember that when EJ is taking her on the conference table. Abigail says maybe it won’t get that far. Abigail brings up that EJ threatened to tell Mr. Shin that Chad was too distracted by side projects to get him ousted, so he can flip it on him and convince Mr. Shin that EJ is incapable of properly running DiMera because he has a side gig of his own, so maybe it will scare him out of doing the movie. Chad doubts that EJ will quit when he wants something and he wants to come between them. Abigail says that EJ will be disappointed then because Chad is the man that she loves and not EJ or anybody can come between them. Abigail kisses Chad and they hug.

Chloe is sorry to lay all of this on Brady yet again. Brady says no apology is necessary and he admits he’s egged Philip on more than once. Brady offers to try talking to him again to make him understand that nothing is going on between them but Chloe worries that would just make things worse. Brady wants her to tell him if there’s anything he can do as he doesn’t like seeing her unhappy because it makes him unhappy. Chloe holds back tears and says she’ll be okay when she calms down which Brady has helped her do so much already. Brady assures that he’s always here for her. Chloe says that means so much to her as Brady hugs her. Philip then walks in to the office and sees them hugging again.

Jake walks outside with a paper bag and then pulls a gun from the bag.

Gabi warns Ava not to take a victory lap just yet because she’s not giving up on her company or Jake. Ava acknowledges her fighting spirit. Gabi assures that she’s going to win and when Rafe finds out what Ava tried to pull, she will have chased him straight in to Nicole’s arms.

Rafe questions Nicole saying she’d rather have dinner with him. Nicole admits she misses their friendship but they have an agreement to keep their distance because he’s with Ava, so she’s going to honor that agreement. Rafe states that he shouldn’t have said anything about EJ. Rafe admits that every time he sees Nicole and EJ together, he gets so damn jealous. Nicole tells him not to say that because he’s with Ava. Rafe says he knows but.. Nicole asks but what?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victoria: How dare you? How dare you bring that horrible man here?

Billy: Look, let me explain for a second, victoria Victoria: there is absolutely nothing that you can say that would justify you trying to hurt me this way.

Billy: Okay, let me explain, okay? Obviously gaines said something to you that got you very upset, and this is not the way I wanted you to find out about his past.

Victoria: I didn’t talk to gaines. And I don’t need to talk to gaines because I know the whole story.

Billy: I highly doubt that.

Ashland: I told her everything about the real ashland locke’s death, the fraudulent inheritance, all of it.

Victoria: This is exactly what you were hoping for — to find some deep, dark secret that was just gonna blow up my entire relationship.

Lily: I think billy just wanted you to know what you were getting into.

Victoria: Oh, please give me a break. If that were true, then you would be relieved right now that ashland confided in me. But look at you. You’re a shattered mess because you’re not the one that got to drop this bomb.

Billy: No, that’s not true, vick.

Victoria: You know how important this wedding is to me. Ashland’s in the middle of chemo. He is fighting so hard to make this a beautiful ceremony for me so that we can have cherished memories for the rest of our lives, billy. And you know what? You’re fighting to take it away. Why can you just not accept that I’ve moved on? For the love of god, just

[Sighs] Stop harassing us. And let me go!

Ashland: [ Sighs ]

[ Laughter ]

Summer: Oh, it is the perfect autumn night tonight.

Kyle: Oh, it sure is.

Phyllis: We seem to have misplaced your dad.

Kyle: Oh, he’s with harrison. They’ve lined up all the toy soldiers in his room, and there’s an epic battle going on now.

Nick: I bet the two of them are having more fun than the rest of us combined.

Noah: I think you’re probably right. I could tell in milan how much jack loves that kid.

Summer: Oh, yeah. No, he totally loves being a grandpa.

Phyllis: You’ve bonded with harrison, too.

Summer: Oh, my gosh, yes. No, he is such a doll. Honestly, whatever fears I had about being a stepmom have just completely gone away.

Phyllis: That’s great.

Kyle: Yeah, summer’s a natural at this whole parenting thing.

Summer: Oh, well, harrison’s so sweet, he makes it easy. I honestly cannot even imagine our life without him now.

Noah: No one’s worried about you not having room in your life for harrison. We’re more worried about you not having room in your closet for all the swag you’re bringing home from marchetti.

Summer: Oh! No, okay, I have a simple solution to that problem. See, I wear them once, and then I just give them away.

Noah: Wait. Seriously?

Summer: Oh, my gosh, no! No, I wouldn’t do that. You are so gullible.

Kyle: He’s right, though. We need to build more closets for all of our shoes.

Summer: You are lying.

Kyle: Mnh, it’s the truth.

Summer: No.

[ Laughter ]

Phyllis: Wait a second. Shoes are very, very important. They add to an outfit. Don’t discount shoes. Come on.

Summer: Yeah.

Phyllis: You know, especially when you work at marchetti.

Summer: Thank you. Thank you. See? There.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Summer: And, actually, speaking of closets being full, my glass is not full, so, um…

Kyle: Oh, um, me?

Summer: Yeah.

Kyle: Well, I have a solution for that.

Summer: Great, great.

[ Chuckles ]

Noah: Oh, wait for me.

Phyllis: You’re very quiet. Are you okay?

Nick: All good. Nothing to worry about.

Sally: [ Exhales sharply ] Wow, I was so confident the whole way over here. Now…I’m a little nervous.

Adam: What’s your next move?

Sally: [ Sighs ] I guess just…corner victoria somewhere and convince her to try on the dress.

Adam: You might want to rethink that. Victoria sees you first, that’s what she’s gonna react to, and you’re never gonna get to unzip that garment bag.

Sally: Well, I wish I had a friend I could persuade to make the pitch for me.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Maybe there’s another way to go about this.

Sally: Hey, if you have an idea, I’m all ears.

Adam: Come on. Let’s go. Ordinary tissues burn when theo blows.

Billy: I hope you’re not letting the things victoria said get to you. There is nothing wrong with us trying to uncover the truth.

Lily: You — not “us.” And you took it a step way too far by bringing gaines here, to what victoria wanted to be a joyous, stress-free event.

Billy: Well, ashland kind of attacked my credibility. So I felt like I needed gaines here to tell victoria the truth because she wasn’t gonna believe it coming from me.

Lily: Because you thought ashland would lie, and you were wrong about him. Just admit it.

Billy: Yeah, I admit that i did not expect him to come clean about the multiple crimes that he has committed.

Lily: You did the same thing with me when we fell in love. You told me everything that you had done that you were ashamed of. So maybe not everything ashland does is cold and calculated. Maybe he actually loves her and what they have is real. But you don’t like hearing me say that, do you?

Elena: So, we heard you’re performing at the ceremony.

Tessa: Yes! I am so excited. Ah, this place — I mean, it blows me away. Everywhere you look, it’s just more beautiful.

Nate: Mm. You will love the view from the terrace in the morning.

Tessa: I’m so excited.

Nate: So, where’s mariah?

Elena: Yeah. Is she resting after the flight?

Tessa: Well, mariah’s not here. She decided not to come.

Kevin: Your timing is perfect. I was due for a break, and i believe you’ve heard me talk about how awful the coffee is at the station.

Mariah: Mm-hmm. In grisly detail.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ] Anyway, it’s gonna be great to catch up.

Mariah: Definitely.

Kevin: So, how’s everything going being back at work?

Mariah: Uh, it’s good, you know? I was a little nervous about interacting with a lot of people again, but everybody at jabot has been amazing about the whole situation. It almost feels like normal.

Kevin: That’s awesome. Well, it’s too bad you couldn’t take off a few more days to go to italy with tessa.

Mariah: Well, I could have. I planned to, actually, but then the baby got sick.

Kevin: Oh, no. Poor guy. Is he gonna be okay?

Mariah: Yeah. It’s nothing serious. I mean, it’s just a cold.

Kevin: Oh. Well, then why couldn’t you go with tessa?

Kyle: Hmm?

Summer: [ Chuckling ] No, i can’t do that. Hey! How’d the battle go?

Jack: The good guys won.

Kyle: Hurrah!

Jack: Harrison’s yawning like crazy, but he insists on a story before he goes to sleep.

Summer: Ah. Well, sounds like you’re being paged, daddy.

Kyle: Come with me?

Summer: Yeah, sure.

Kyle: Alright. We’ll be back.

Jack: See you around.

Noah: Any progress with aunt victoria? Where do thing stand? It seemed like it was a little less tense between you two earlier.

Nick: Yeah. Decided to stick around, do what she asked me to do, which is just give her some space. Hopefully she cools off.

Phyllis: With whatever’s going on with her, I think it has very little to do with you. You know, there’s a million things going on. You know, the wedding, ashland’s health, the newman/locke scenario. I mean, it’s just kind of landing on you, you know?

Nick: Yeah. Well, let’s just try and get through it on our best behavior.

Phyllis: And by “let’s,” you mean me, right? Why wouldn’t I be on my best behavior?

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Right.

Noah: I wonder where ashland and aunt victoria are.

Phyllis: Yeah. We haven’t seen them in a while.

[ Clears throat ]

Victoria: I was so supportive of billy when he moved in with lily.

[ Sighs ] I even bought him a damn houseplant. And this is how he reacts when i want to move on with my life.

Ashland: Sweetheart, you know my theory. Billy is still in love with you.

Victoria: Please don’t go there.

Ashland: What else could this be about?

Victoria: His enormous ego. Look, even if you’re right, what exactly does he expect to accomplish with this stunt? I’m telling you, I will never trust that man again.

Ashland: Billy is not our problem right now. Gaines is. I suspect that his end game is just to humiliate me publicly to feel like he’s had the last laugh.

Victoria: Well, we need to find them, and we need to have security throw them out.

Ashland: Okay, okay. Easy, easy. Leave that up to me, okay?

[ Door opens and closes ] (Drill sergeant) what a pleasant morning. It’s warm, but not too warm.

Mariah: Abby was talking about weaning dominic while i was gone, and I just thought that it was too soon, you know, especially since he wasn’t feeling well. And breast milk is supposed to be amazing for the baby’s immune system. I mean, I know he would have been fine either way.

Kevin: Well, it makes perfect sense that you would feel protective of him.

Mariah: Thank you for understanding.

Kevin: Come on, mariah. Of course. I have a baby, you know? Your whole perspective changes. Nothing’s more important than making sure they have everything they need.

Mariah: But dominic isn’t my baby.

Kevin: No, but you went through a lot together, which i can relate to, given everything I went through as a kid.

Mariah: I remember the stories.

Kevin: I know what it’s like to be locked in a small space for a very long period of time. And I know it’s not the same circumstances, and I don’t mean to pry, but if it would help you to talk about it…

Mariah: I’m doing okay with that aspect of it, you know, the trauma. I — I get a little jumpy if i hear footsteps behind me, and I don’t like too much quiet or being alone for too long. But I’m doing okay, you know? I can function.

Kevin: I’m glad to hear that.

Mariah: But I — I want to hear about you. How are bella and miles doing?

Kevin: [ Sighs ] You want me to brag about my kids?

Mariah: Yes.

Kevin: I’m in.

Mariah: [ Laughs ]

Kevin: Okay.

Billy: [ Sighs ] I don’t have a hidden agenda. I know victoria’s trying to push that because she’s in denial about how serious ashland’s crimes are.

Lily: Maybe it’s because they happened 40 years ago and she doesn’t think they’re relevant to the person she knows now.

Billy: Or maybe there’s another reason why she’s trying to protect him. Maybe it has to do with the merger. It’s the biggest accomplishment of her professional life, and she doesn’t want it to fall apart. I wouldn’t put it past her father pressuring her into it, either.

Lily: Billy, it does not matter why victoria is standing by ashland. She is, okay? So, your big plan to expose him has backfired.

Billy: Well, it might look that way on the surface. You saw her. You saw how defensive she was. Ashland’s crimes bother her, and they should because the guy is a liar and a criminal.

Lily: Billy, I need you to listen to me, okay? The wedding is happening tomorrow, whether you like it or not. And that is victoria’s choice to make.

Billy: So, what do you want me to do? You want me to just drop it, let her make a mistake?

Lily: Honestly, I think that maybe we shouldn’t even be here.

Nikki: Here’s someone you will want to meet. Leslie brooks, tessa porter.

Tessa: Oh, my gosh, hi!

Leslie: Oh, it’s so great to meet you!

Tessa: Yes, it’s so great to meet you in person finally. Oh, we’ve been video-chatting about what song we’re gonna do at the ceremony, yeah.

Victor: I can hardly wait.

Leslie: I’m so looking forward to performing with you.

Tessa: Oh, trust me — I am the one who’s excited.

Nikki: Now, I know you’ve been traveling all day and are very tired, but if the two of you want to go over some songs and get comfortable with each other, you’re more than welcome.

Leslie: Excellent. Do you know any standards?

Tessa: Jazz? Absolutely.

Leslie: [ Chuckles ] And I do take requests.

Nikki: Oh, well, now that you mention it, I might have a few favorites to suggest.

Victor: There you go.

[ Sighs ]

Adam: Hey, pop.

Victor: Hey, my boy! So glad you came. My goodness. Adam. Well, look at this. The three generations together. Let’s have a drink. Come on. Sit down.

Adam: Sure, dad. Noah. Oh, great job on the, uh, newman media branding package, by the way.

Noah: How’s it going, adam?

Adam: Fine. You?

Noah: Doing okay. Thanks for asking.

Victor: You know, I really appreciate that you all made the effort to come here and join us. And I really appreciate the fact that you’re trying to get along, you know?

Adam: Eh, nick — he’s not that bad.

Nick: I guess I can deal with him.

[ “Finally” plays ]

Your love gets in the way

of the bad things people say

my feet were broken and bleedin’

you washed my sins away

my heart needed dreamin’


I found somethin’ strong and steady

I know I’m ready

for someone like you


I’m runnin’ to someone great

who wants me to feel safe



this affair

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Damn you, billy.

Tessa: Is definitely worth keepin’

Victoria: I am not gonna let you ruin this night for me.

Tessa: Dancin’ like little kids

up on the ceiling

who knows where we are going

the road might be steep ahead

but you’ll always have my hand


I found somethin’ strong and steady

I know I’m ready for someone like you


I’m runnin’ to someone great

who wants me to feel safe


finally what can I du with less asthma?

Victoria: That’s odd.

[ Door closes ]

Sally: [ Sighs heavily ]

Lily: I mean, everyone is doing their best to cheer on ashland and victoria, and if we can’t join them, we shouldn’t be here. You know, the kids can fly home with victor and nikki.

Billy: That’s not necessary. Look, I am not going to apologize for trying to uncover the truth. And I really don’t think ashland deserves a bunch of credit because he came clean after feeling the pressure of somebody investigating him.

Lily: Then take all the credit, billy. It doesn’t change anything. She’s still gonna marry ashland tomorrow.

Billy: So, that’s it? Okay. I won’t intervene. I’ll find gaines and send him on his way.

Lily: Simple as that, huh?

Billy: No, honestly, it’s not gonna be that simple. Gaines has wanted his revenge on ashland for a very long time. So I’m gonna throw some more money at him and give him a first-class ticket out of here.

Lily: And what about the wedding?

Billy: I think we should go. The most important thing right now is johnny and katie see that their parents support each other. And victoria is gonna need some help when ashland’s health starts to deteriorate. And I would like her to know that she can count on me.

Lily: That’s quite an attitude shift. I’m impressed.

Billy: I hope you realize this whole time I was just trying to do the right thing. Victoria has been hurt a lot in her life, mostly by me.

Lily: I know it’s your way of making amends, in your own antagonistic way.

Billy: I hope you are not questioning my commitment to you. I love you. Which is another reason why we should go to that wedding — so you can see with your own eyes that I am not hung up on my ex. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Billy, I know that you’re a passionate man. And I know that you’ll go to extremes to take care of the people that you love. And even though it’s exhausting, it’s also very endearing.

Billy: I was hoping you were gonna say something more along the lines of “hot and sexy.”

Lily: Oh, well, I mean, that goes without saying.

[ Chuckles ]

Adam: Enjoying your evening?

Elena: Yeah. Very much so. You?

Adam: Ah. What’s not to like, right?

Nate: One of the loveliest homes I’ve ever seen, complete with a private concert by a world-renowned artist? There’s not a lot that can top it.

Elena: Hey, did you ever get in touch with billy after you guys missed each other at society?

Adam: Uh, I ended up tracking him down before I left genoa city. But the, uh, conversation didn’t go as well as I hoped, so i should probably steer clear of him while we’re here.

Nate: Well, given the size of this place, that shouldn’t be an issue.

Phyllis: Look at this guy. Look — he has the audacity to show up.

Jack: I’m sure victor’s glad he did.

Phyllis: Amazing. Does it bother you at all, what he’s done to his family? Like, at all?

Jack: Wh–

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I mean, victoria’s fine with him, but she’s treating nick like he’s the gate crasher. Seriously. This family.

[ Sighs ] They drive me crazy. Have I told you how crazy they drive me? Have I ever told you?

Jack: Uh, yeah, once or twice, yeah. Um…let it go. This will be over soon.

Phyllis: Not soon enough.

Nikki: So beautiful.

Tessa: Oh, thank you.

Nikki: Oh, my goodness.

Tessa: Thank you.

Victoria: Thank you so much, both of you, for your serenade together. You sound so beautiful.

Tessa: Oh, thank you.

Nikki: Well, they were just about to grace us with another song.

Leslie: Shall we?

[ “You’re the best thing” plays ]

Tessa: You’re the best thing

that’s happened to me

the key to my heart

you’re the best thing

that’s happened to me

I knew from the start

Victor: Hi, my sweetheart. Hi, my sweetheart.

Tessa: We complement each other

Victor: Everything alright?

Victoria: [ Sighs ]

Victor: What?

Tessa: Like sister and brother

like hops and malt

sugar and salt

fall and spring

yang and ying feeling stressed in your skin?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Phyllis: Hey, did you have another run-in with victoria?

Nick: She doesn’t want to deal with me, which is fine. I don’t want to make this situation about myself.

Phyllis: Alright. Well, she’s gonna come around. And she is going to owe you the biggest apology.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I know you don’t like my sister, but it’s not helping when you’re exploiting this.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I’m not exploiting anything. That’s not what I’m doing. I’m sympathizing with you.

Nick: I don’t see it like that.

Phyllis: Oh. Alright.

Jack: Hey. Let it roll off your back. Don’t take that personally. He’s upset right now.

Phyllis: That’s o– doesn’t make it any better.

Kevin: Oh, I mean, thank god for esther, right? Two kids, two jobs. I don’t know how we would make it work without her. And now that miles is walking, I mean, look out, world.

Mariah: Yeah, yeah, I guess he is that age, which means i missed his first birthday. Sorry.

Kevin: You don’t have to apologize. “A,” you were otherwise occupied, and, “b,” miles is very easygoing. He doesn’t hold grudges. You know, besides, birthday parties for babies are kind of pointless. They have no idea what’s going on. It’s really just all about the parents. So, my advice — if you and tessa decide to have kids, don’t even invite the babies. They just get in the way.

Mariah: And thank you for not sneaking in a “party-poopers” pun — because I could see it, and it was just right there.

Kevin: It was really hard. But I’m a classy guy.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Mariah: Oh. Hey! Tessa! Yeah. Hi. What time is it in europe? Oh, my gosh.

Tessa: It’s pretty late.

Mariah: How is everything going? Are you — are you jet-lagged? Are you feeling okay?

Tessa: Well, I, uh, slept on the plane, and, boy, am I glad that I did because this place is just so over the top. And I mean that in the best way. It’s just like — it’s something out of a magazine. Everyone’s, um, asking about you and sending their love. Oh, and I got to meet leslie brooks. Oh, she is so cool and funny. We got to rehearse, and she’s just really down to earth, and I’m just —

Mariah: Tessa, all of that, uh, sounds amazing, and I wish i could talk right now, but, um, I barely slept last night and I’m in zombie mode and buried in work and, um — we’ll catch up later, okay?

Tessa: Oh, yeah. Sure. Of course. I love you.

Mariah: Me too. Bye.

[ Mug thuds ]

Noah: Hi.

Tessa: Well, hi yourself.

Noah: You know, until i walked in before and saw you, I — I don’t think I realized how much I’ve missed you.

Sally: Okay. Mission accomplished. Or, at least, the first phase. Now we just wait and see how the bride reacts.

Adam: I really hope you are managing your expectations.

Sally: I designed that dress specifically to suit victoria’s taste and figure, so I have to believe that she’s gonna love it, at which point I will move in and make my final sales pitch.

Adam: You know, I really do hope this works out for you, sally.

Sally: Everything’s riding on this.

Summer: Oh, my gosh, you should have seen it. When I came back with water for harrison, the butler was in there trying to teach him how to pronounce “arrivederci,” and harrison kept saying “bless you,” thinking that he was sneezing every time.

Kyle: [ Laughing ] Please tell me you got it on video.

Summer: No, I didn’t, and i am kicking myself ’cause it was so cute. Oh, gosh.

Adam: Congratulations. How was the wedding?

Summer: [ Scoffs ] What is she doing here?

Adam: Sally’s my date. On the outside, I looked fine.

Jack: Wait. Adam actually said that sally is here as his date?

Summer: Mm-hmm. It’s a bit tacky, if you ask me.

Phyllis: Yeah, well, it is tacky, but, you know, it’s adam. He showed up with sally on his arm to the newman media launch party. Why would he not do the same here? Of course he brought her.

Kyle: Think victoria knew he was planning this?

Jack: No, I don’t think so.

Summer: You know, I doubt grandpa knew, either, because there’s no way he would want her here after the way that she treated me.

Kyle: If it’s really bugging you that much, just say the word. I’m sure victor will have her bounced.

Phyllis: Yeah, sounds like a plan. Let’s do that.

Summer: That woman is not worth the attention that we’ve already given her, so let’s not give sally the satisfaction of knowing that she’s gotten under our skin, okay?

Jack: I think your daughter has the right idea. You should do the same thing. Stay away from sally and any ice buckets you happen to see.

Phyllis: Oh, you know what? I think you have that the other way around. Sally should stay away from me.

Adam: You really enjoy riling people up, don’t you?

Sally: Everyone needs a hobby. Still, probably would be a good time for me to slip away to my room. Hopefully if your family decides to give me the boot, they won’t roust me out of bed to do it.

Adam: Mm. Well, I wouldn’t sweat it. My father and victoria have more important things to worry about.

Sally: I’m sure you’re right. Anyway, good night. Sleep well.

Adam: You too.

Victor: Yes, ashland?

Ashland: [ Whispering indistinctly ]

Kevin: Should we pretend i didn’t just hear you blowing off your girlfriend? Or do you want to talk about it? Or do you want to pretend that i didn’t even ask that question?

Mariah: It’s fine. Thank you for being willing to listen. And maybe someday I will take you up on that. But for now, I really — I just want to hear about the kids. Is bella still taking dance lessons?

Kevin: Yes. She just had a recital. Mad hatter’s tea party. All of these kids in in these elaborately adorable costumes.

Mariah: What was she dressed as?

Kevin: She was the dormouse! You know, cute pink nose and whiskers.

[ Laughing ] But, oh, there was this other little girl who was dressed as a sugar cube.

Mariah: [ Laughing ] Okay. What’s so funny?

Kevin: No, I mean, she was, like, this giant sugar cube, okay, with this tiny little girl inside. So, she’s dancing and all of a sudden she loses her balance and she falls onto her back, okay? So, all the other kids still keep dancing, and this girl is, like, flailing her arms and legs. Oh, my gosh, we laughed.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: So… how’s london? How’s the photography going?

Noah: It’s really well, actually. It’s almost more work than I can handle.

Tessa: Noah, that’s great.

Noah: Yeah. And I got three corporate commissions waiting for me when I get back.

Tessa: Well, here you are, making art for a living, and I’m singing for a living. I mean, how crazy is that? We can both say that we’re living the dream without being ironic.

Noah: Yeah, I hadn’t really thought about it that way, but you’re right. Although I think you may have been a little bit smarter than me in choosing which dream to pursue.

Tessa: Why would you say that? I thought you loved art.

Noah: No, I do, and I’m really happy to be in a field where I can be creative, but… you know, when people pay to hear you sing, it’s because they love your music. You know, they feel it in their soul. The art world is just… it’s just different.

Tessa: Well, how?

Noah: You know, a lot of it comes down to investment value. So there are people who buy my pieces because they intend to flip it, you know, like it’s a condo in west palm beach.

Tessa: Well, that sounds pretty cynical.

Noah: I understand the mentality. I come from a business background, but, yeah, it can be a little discouraging. You know, one time I actually had a client who offered to pay me to produce less. That way, the value in the pieces he already owned would go up. Supply and demand.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: Wow. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. That’s just really nuts.

Noah: It’s the nature of the beast, I guess.

Tessa: Well, if it makes you feel better, I don’t think a music career would be very different for you.

Noah: Oh, you mean people would pay me not to sing?

Tessa: [ Laughing ] No, no, that’s not what I meant.

Noah: No, I know. I know. Music’s commercial, too.

Tessa: Yes.

Noah: I’m just giving you a hard time.

Tessa: Yeah, you’re good at that.

Noah: But is it a career track? That’s the real question.

Tessa: Uh…stand-up comic? Working the club circuit? Well, I do think you have to be funny to do that, and you’re painfully serious, like, all of the time.

Noah: Yeah, you know, borderline boring.

Tessa: Ugh. A real snore.

[ Both laugh ]

Victor: I’m very happy to hear that victoria put billy boy in his place. Now we have to be concerned about gaines.

Ashland: It’s not gonna be that easy to get rid of him. It’s not the money at this point. He’s got a score to settle.

Victor: I don’t want you to worry about that. I’ll take care of it, okay?

Ashland: Look, even if we can keep gaines away from the wedding, he can still do damage to newman/locke, to the firm’s reputation.

Victor: It’s not gonna happen. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Elena: I know it’s late, but it’s heavenly out here.

Nate: Mmm.

Elena: And tomorrow it’s gonna be hectic and full of people.

Nate: Mm.

Elena: And you’re gonna be busy helping ashland. But tonight you’re all mine.

Nate: Mmm. I like the sound of that.

[ Soft, romantic piano music plays ]

Elena: Just when you thought it couldn’t get better.

Nate: It still can.

Elena: Mmm.

Lily: We never made it to the party.

Billy: [ Chuckles ] You distracted me.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Well, we definitely had more fun up here.

Billy: Mm-hmm.

Lily: And now we can enjoy the festivities. So I’m glad we didn’t leave.

Billy: ‘Cause of the beautiful music?

Lily: Well, I mean, it doesn’t suck.

[ Both chuckle ]

Lily: But seriously, I’m really happy that you’re able to see where you’ve gotten off track. I really admire your ability to course-correct. Not everyone can do that.

Billy: Is there anything else you admire about me?

Lily: [ Whispering indistinctly ]

Billy: I’ll take it.

Phyllis: Oh, good night, you two.

Elena: Night, night.

Nate: We’ll see you in the morning.

Phyllis: Okay. Is this seat reserved, or can anybody sit here?

Nick: I’m sorry I snapped at you. None of this is your fault.

Phyllis: That’s for sure. You know, it’s hard for me to hang out with your family. They don’t like me or trust me, and I feel the same way about them. But I do this for you. I’m here for you.

Nick: I was out of line. Won’t happen again.

Phyllis: I almost forgive you.

Nick: You gonna make me work for it?

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. I am.

Nikki: You haven’t seen victor, have you?

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Where were you?

Ashland: Victor and I briefed the security team, and they are on top of the situation. They will find gaines, and they will remove him.

Victoria: Well, I’m just glad that we found out what billy was up to in time to put a stop to it.

[ Inhales deeply ] I just hope that everything will go smoothly for our wedding.

Ashland: There will be no more interruptions, and that’s a promise. And by this time tomorrow, you and I… will be husband and wife.

Victoria: [ Laughs ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne


[ Grunts ] My cousin jason. What’s up? You want in on this? No, I’ll wait till you’re finished. Okay. So, there’s this brand-new theory in economics where the assets and services are divvied up equally among private individuals so that no one consumer has to bear the undue burden of cost. It’s a theory perfected by kindergartners, and it’s called “sharing.” And I realized that that is a concept foreign to you quartermaines. But you’re not really one of them, are you? You’re avoiding my calls, anna, and my texts. I can only assume it’s because you haven’t found peter or my mother. You know, here’s a novel idea — how about you put aside your personal feelings and act like a professional? My mother was abducted, either by someone with ties to peter or peter himself. And that means it is your job — no, it is your duty — to find her.

[ Sighs ] Britt, I really need your help. Dr. Gatlin-holt has crossed the line. Something has to be done about him. You got this, girl.

[ Breathes sharply ] Olivia: This all looks in order. Yep. What am I missing? Nothing. It’s a lease renewal. Yeah, for the crimson offices.

[ Light clattering ] Careful, honey. Oh, he’s okay. Yeah, crimson’s yearly lease renewal is up. And you’re not even going to raise the rent? Why should I? Crimson pays their bills on time. I have no complaints. Um, except that the editor-in-chief kept sonny away from you and his family for — for — what — w-was it nine months? I mean, I know nina says that he was happy. That’s hardly the point. And besides, I don’t buy it. Sonny is a city boy born and bred. He — he might enjoy the countryside for an afternoon, maybe a long weekend, tops. But tending bar and sweeping the floor for nine months? No, I don’t buy it. I’m aware. Yeah. And this is your first chance to get back at her. You’re really not going to take a swing at nina? Are you here on carly’s behalf? Why would you think that? Well, it’s just

crimson’s lease is up. So maybe I thought you were delivering a message from your wife — vacate the premises or else. I mean…

[ Scoffs ] Carly’s business is none of mine. Despite living in the same city, traveling around in the same circles, even sharing a grandchild… I guess I really don’t know you. You’re about to. Is that a threat?

Hi, ava. Hi. Okay, so, I’m gonna have a martini, and I’m going to put it on your tab. You can have a whole pitcher of martinis if you came through for me. Mm. It’s done. I, uh, pulled your divorce papers…

[ Sighs ] …Before they got to the clerk so you and nikolas can live in wedded bliss. And more’s the pity. Wait, weren’t you just fighting for us to save our marriage? Well, that was before I found out that nikolas’ son was stalking you. So, ava, you know, you might want to hang on to those divorce papers. Now, I hate to disappoint you, but nikolas and I destroyed our copies the other night. Well, then, I say goodbye to our business relationship. What? No. Scott, I’ll always need you.

[ Sighs ] I’ll always have… legal problems for you.

[ Chuckles ] Well, you know what? I’m really trying to find liesl. And now, I’ve taken on nina reeves as a client, so I don’t know if I’ve got a lot of time for your little squabbles. Um… nina needs a lawyer? And a bulletproof pantsuit. If you have to ask… …it’s not a threat. I’ll remember that. So, crimson is just humming along, huh? Yeah. I have a great staff. They kept the office running during my…s-sabbatical. So I take it you’re not here to inquire about a subscription. You and I have a few things to discuss. Really? Yeah. I didn’t think you left anything unsaid when we ran into each other at the cemetery. Yeah, uh… yeah, I did, but then you surprised me. How so? You showed up at the quartermaines’. Carly saw you. You were visiting wiley. That didn’t make her happy. Oh, and you think that I’m afraid of carly? I thought you knew me better than that. You know, uh… you’re not going to be happy in port charles for very long. Ar e you telling meto get out of town? Rumor has it you don’t want anything to do with elq at all. You designated all of your voting shares to michael. You don’t participate in any of the family business meetings. You want me to hold the bag for you? No. Okay, clearly chitchat isn’t going to get me anywhere with you, and yet, here I am, willing to hold your bag.

[ Indistinct conversations in distance ] Think of it as an opportunity to suss me out face to face. Who’s gonna give that up? Yes? No? Okay. Anna, [Sighs] Just — just call me whether you have news or not, okay? Leaving me to twist like this is — it’s not only unprofessional — it’s cruel. And that is not your reputation, okay? So please just call me! Oh! Oh, oh! I’m so sorry! Geez! Hi, britt.

[ Clears throat lightly ]

[ Sighs ] Something wrong? No, everything is good. I mean, it’s not, but I know you’re really busy. I don’t want to bother you. No, no, please bother me. I-I could use the distraction. What’s your problem? It’s not my problem. It’s leo’S. These are expired. Oh, okay. I will get rid of those. Thank you so much, leo. Thank you. There we go. Carly, what nina did was some serious old testament-level violation. I mean, you — you are well within your rights to exact your pound of flesh. I’m just trying so hard to not go to war with nina. But she already fired the first shots. Yes, and if I fire back, I make nina out to be the victim. I mean, just imagine carly, the vindictive witch going after the poor woman who just made a mistake. Are you kidding me? Mistake my as…ton-martin. Hey, sonny asked me to lay off. Oh. What, and you’re just prepared to do that? To — to — to renew their lease and not kick nina out of the building? I can’t begin to tell you what I want to do to nina. And, see, that’s what I’m talking about. I know you. What are you planning?

Nina knew sonny was alive all along? Have you been living on the moon? I mean, everybody in this world knows that. I-I just saw sonny the other day. I went to say goodbye to avery when I-I thought I was leaving town, and he didn’t say anything about nina. No, maybe he didn’t want to, you know, distract with everything that’s going on with your stalker and all that…stuff. He didn’t, you know, lay anything more on you, but, you know… aren’t you and nina like buddy buddies? Yeah, we’re friends, but sonny’s not the type to spare my feelings. Nina took a big risk finding sonny in a small-town joint and then keeping quiet and messing with carly. Well, carly can drive otherwise reasonable people to do things they wouldn’t ordinarily do. Yeah, well, I’m kind of sorry that nina got found out. I mean, jason and carly would still be newlyweds. Sonny would be dead and buried, and good guy mike could just live on in his place. I’m sorry. D-did you say “mike”? Yeah. Mike. Schmike. Who cares? It — it — it’s — it’s just a name. Port charles could be a sonny-free place. Let’s move on to a happier topic, okay? Like your new man, and why don’t you tell me the real reason you don’t want him to move here or at least come for a visit? I’m not saying that we don’t have a mob problem here, but the whole thing of, you know, the “godfather with a heart of gold,” we — we can do with– okay, scott, you know what? I gotta — I gotta go. Have as many martinis as you want. Okay? Bye. Oh, ava, hang on. Make sure you tell nina I’m top notch!

[ Sighs ] Sonny: You know what, nina? You can do whatever you want. You want to stay, you want to go — it’s up to you. I don’t need your permission. Okay, fine. But I-I just want to let you know that it may not be comfortable for you here. When has my life ever been comfortable? My mind won’t let me be too comfortable. Now I have carly, michael, and josslyn just waiting in line to tell me exactly how they feel about me. Well, they have every right. I mean, josslyn watched her mother struggle taking care of my business. Michael saw you lying to his face every time you went to visit wiley. And carly, she grieved for me for nine months. I’m not dead. Okay, I get it — I am a pariah. I deserve to be. But I admit that I am not crazy about hearing a litany of my sins every time I leave my house, and I’m even less crazy about starting over. I tried that already. Look where it got me. So you’re gonna s– you’re gonna stay in port — yeah. I’m going to stay where maxie is and james and my grandchild. Then you got to understand the ground rules. What are you planning for nina? This desk is a mess. Honey, that’s not nice.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, you know what? It has been a crazy morning, leo.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, but still, the kid’s got no filter. Where does he get that from? Uh, yeah. But, honey, not everybody keeps every colored pencil and every eraser in its own separate spot. I’m sorry, leo. Usually I’m much more organized. If it wasn’t for me taking up all your time, you would be ready to focus. Come on, honey. We don’t want to be late for dr. Diamond. Leo’s pediatrician. Oh. Is everything okay? Yeah, yeah, yeah, just — just regular kid stuff. Can I have that? No! You know what? It’s pretty, isn’t it?

[ Sighs ] So pretty. And you know what? You can have it. You know why? You cleaned up my desk. So it’s all yours. What do you say, honey? Thank you, aunt carly. You’re welcome. You’re welcome. Yes. Thank you, aunt carly.

[ Laughs ] What are you planning for crimson? Oh, I’m definitely renewing their lease. I’m keeping nina close so I can keep an eye on her. You’re really, really good at this. Wow, seriously. Did you take lessons? Or is it just kind of baked into your dna to beat on things? Wow. I’m asking because it’s not baked into mine, and yet we do share a lot of dna. So, there’s this phenomenon in medicine called “boxer’s knuckles.” You got to look out for that. Have you experienced any swelling around your knuckles?

[ Breathes sharply ] Are you done punching? Can’t concentrate. Right. I mean, I imagine you have quite a bit on your mind. Your new wife’s recently deceased husband alive again… showing up on your wedding night. That must’ve been a crowded honeymoon.

[ Chuckles ] You ever stop talking? Just trying to be supportive. We are cousins, and I thought, at this moment in time, we could both use a f-friendly ear. Yeah, well, you have a lot of friendly ears — your mother, charity, your brother, jonah, your med school mentor. I’m flattered. That’s quite a deep dive to protect the family that you go to great pains to steer clear of. I steer clear of elq, not my family. I had you pegged as a guy who would choose his own family rather than just put up with the one that he was born into. And yet, at this moment in time, I’d imagine you can’t count on the family you chose either, can you? Oh, yes. Um, leo, yes, olivia falconeri’s son. Yeah, he’s my stepbrother. Oh. Are you two close? Uh, well, olivia was going through some stuff with julian — that’s leo’s dad — when he was a baby, and I, um, I took care of him. So since I’ve been back in port charles, we’ve been getting to know each other again. Such a rad little dude.

[ Chuckles ] So what’s the problem? Would what I tell you be covered under doctor-patient confidentiality? I-I know, technically, I’m not your patient. Well, uh, technically, you are. I treated you last spring when valentin brought you in for a sonogram. Okay, good. So, someone in this hospital suggested that leo has a behavioral issue. Now, my father is all about getting it checked out. But olivia — not so much. So there’s a lot of tension in the house right now, just when their marriage was getting back on track. And what sort of behavioral issue is leo having? Autism…or at least on the spectrum. Has he been examined? Was olivia given a reference for a pediatric neurologist? I don’t really know. I-I’m not sure. All I know is austin thinks that leo might be autistic. Dr. Gatlin-holt — he said this? To olivia? Ned? To me. Is that a problem?

[ Scoffs ] I suspect you knew that.

Things must be reallyup in the air with your new wife now that her dead husband is alive again. You got to have patients waiting for you, right? Actually, no. I don’t have to be at G.H. Until later this evening. You want to get a beer? Whatever you want from me, you’re not getting it. You don’t want to be friends? You know, we don’t have to be adversaries. No, we don’T. If you drop your lawsuit against the quartermaines. I would love nothing more than to resolve my conflict with the quartermaines amicably, but… I get nothing from them. Zero. They’ve iced me out. They don’t talk to me. They don’t even relate to me on a person-to-person level. I’m trying to meet a medical obligation with leo, and olivia keeps looking at me like I’m working some kind of an angle. Well, are you? At the risk of repeating myself, all I want to do is get my father the recognition that he was denied, and that may not mean anything to you, jason, but it might if you were the guy who sat at his father’s deathbed while he was grasping for his last breaths. The last word he said on this earth was, “why did edward shut me out?” Look, jason… even if I do win this lawsuit against the quartermaines and get the juicy satisfaction of a few elq voting shares, it’s not like the qs are going to welcome me into the family with open arms, and, by extension, jimmy lee. Then why bother? I-I’m not sure what you mean. Oh, really? Don’t play a player, brook lynn, okay? That — the fake “bump into,” establishing doctor-patient confidentiality, then bringing up a situation where one of my doctors breaks it. A doctor that just so happens to be locked in litigation with your family. You knew about that? Yeah. Austin is the son of edward quartermaine’s illegitimate son, jimmy lee holt. Edward wrote poor old jimmy lee out of the will, and now austin’s in court trying to write himself back in. Impressive. Not really. You know, the quartermaine squabble is the go-to gossip in the staff room.

[ Sighs ] Okay. Still, austin definitely crossed a line. Yes, you’re right. He did. Dr. Gatlin-holt had no business discussing or making a diagnosis regarding someone he doesn’t have the expertise to examine. So, when and where did he say leo was autistic? It was at G.H., Actually, this morning. Were there any witnesses? Chase and maxie were nearby, but they weren’t a part of the conversation. Okay, would you be willing to give your account to a disciplinary board?

[ Chuckles ] Why am I even asking? Of course you’d be willing. This is the point of the conversation. So what are you going to do about austin? Okay, let me do my job. And in turn, you take care of leo, because if austin thinks he might be on the spectrum, I’m inclined to believe him.

[ Sighs ] Oh, hi. Hey. Am I interrupting? No. What can I do for you, ava? I assume sonny told you. Spencer is your stalker? Yeah. Wow. I’m sorry about that. And just so you know, spencer and his girlfriend were asked to leave my hotel this morning. Wow, you surprise me. Why is that? I just thought that you would forgive spencer’s transgressions. Because you were the target. Okay, well, look, spencer has every right to have a chip on his shoulder. He has no right to go after avery. That’s totally unacceptable. I agree. I agree completely. And now that I am no longer in fear for my life — or avery’s — and I’m not going anywhere, I was hoping that we could revisit avery’s custody arrangement. So there’s rules if I stay in town? Why do you seem so surprised? I mean, look, you must’ve known that your lies were going to bring consequences…right? -Right. -Right. So, how foolish of me to forget. I am so sorry. Okay, lay ’em on me. Okay, first of all, uh, you stay away from carly. That’s easy. And the rest of my family. Including my grandson? Well, uh, michael’s his father. That’s his decision — what he wants to do with his son. And you and carly, of course, are going to back michael, whatever he decides. And I do believe we should not cross paths. Well, why don’t you give me a list of places that you think you’ll be, and I’ll just avoid them? Anything else? And I have the right to change the rules as I see fit. You weren’t wrong. What do you mean? About me finding out who you really are. Been quite the education. You know what? These — these rules make it easier for you. Oh. Yeah. Do you want me to thank you? No. No. I-I don’t need gratitude. I just want peace. Oh. Good luck finding it.

[ Chuckles ] Well, when I do, I’ll let you know so you can find it. But we’re not supposed to cross paths. Well, I can make an exception. So… okay, I think, uh, I covered it, so I’m going to let you get back to work. Wait. Mike left this in nixon falls. But it was never his. Sonny… it’s been yours all along.

Ava, I’m not going to have that conversation with you without sonny. Okay. I-I just thought, because you and I… we got along pretty well — right? — In sonny’s absence. I thought we could work together to lay the groundwork for a civilized conversation about the current arrangement. That’s all. I understand. Not without sonny. So, in spite of everything, you and sonny are as… committed as ever, huh? In spite of what exactly? Well, not what. Who. I’m not going to talk to you about this. Um, as for avery’s custody agreement, I am sure sonny will be happy to talk to you. So, if you don’t mind, you can go. Carly. Honestly, I didn’t come here only to talk to you about avery. I wanted to tell you how sorry I am about everything that’s happened — right? — What nina did to you and to sonny, to your family. It’s just — it’s deeply disturbing, isn’t it? I mean, the mark of a — a very troubled mind. To conceal a man from his family, to make them believe that he was dead while he’s off creating another life as a new person. But you’re friends with nina. Did you know what she was doing? Did you know that she knew sonny was alive? Were you keeping her secret? No! No, god, no! This is avery’s father we’re talking about. Nina would never tell me — she knows I wouldn’t keep that kind of secret. You better hope so, because if sonny found out, he would be very unhappy, and if you cross sonny, he’s the one who’s going to respond. Not mike from nixon falls. That’s my dad’s watch. Take it. Take it. I threw it away in nixon falls. I-I never — never thought I’d see it again. Why’d you throw it away in the first place? Because I felt it was holding me back from… taking that next step with…you, my life. Well, now your watch has come back to you. Where’d you get it? Well, phyllis actually found it. She was walking past one of lenny’s old fishing haunts. Lenny? Yeah. Maybe he had a hand in finding it. That watch was meant to be found. Is that what phyllis said? No, she actually said the opposite. She…didn’t know whether or not she should give it back to you. Why? Because she thought that maybe it would bring up some painful memories, but I figured you’d want it, so I told her to leave it here. Why didn’t you hold on to it? Sonny…

[ Sniffles ] …I don’t have claim to any part of you. Not even as mike. I never did. I didn’t come here to lay down the ground rules. I, uh — somebody said that I should forgive you.

[ Sniffles ] You’re kidding. Yeah. I mean, not… not forget. Forgive. Sonny? Do you forgive me? Not now. But I’m — I’m — I can’t rule it out.

[ Sniffles ] Hi, liv. Hey, leo. What brings you guys here? I hope everything’s okay. Just a — just a visit with his pediatrician. Good. Yeah. Mrs. Quartermaine. Leo. Dr. Diamond will see you now. Okay. Uh. Honey, why don’t you go with, uh, nurse caty for a second? I’m going to have a conversation with brook lynn. Okay, sweetheart? It’s okay. It’s okay, sweetie. It’s okay. Let’s go. Is everything okay? Well, I don’t know. Why don’t you tell me? You seem to be the expert on my son. You and — you and austin. Sorry. I didn’t mean for you to hear any of that, olivia. No, no. I don’t need an apology. I just would like an honest answer. Is that what austin’s been — been hinting about all this time? He thinks my son has autism? He does. I mean, you had a nice life in pautuck. You had a — what? — Medical practice. 500 people sponsored you in raising thousands for a local hospital. 505. What? Well, I did have the most sign-ups. And you sacrificed all that to try and force your way into a family that doesn’t want you. Yeah, I know. It must seem counterintuitive. And I did have a great life there.

[ Sighs ] So why give that up? The answer for me is simple. I don’t think I really could have enjoyed that life unless I tried to have this life. Nothing like that’s ever happened to you? You’ve never been in a situation where you had to weigh two things that you cared about and choose one over the other? Have you really been that lucky? Okay. Come on, come on, come on, come on.

[ Sighs ] It’s — it’s quitting time. We got — no, I can’T. I have a last-minute emergency. No, we — we got to do the brainstorming about how to get liesl home. Delayed. No, it can’t be delayed. She is in danger. She’s not just gonna get away from peter august. She’s alone. And anna devane is not going to make her a priority. Okay, scott, what — what are we supposed to do? Huh? Hire a mercenary? Well… that could be a little pricey. However, you know, what — what if we — we did come up with the money, you know?

[ Snaps fingers ] Like that? Who? Who? Who would we get? I mean, do you have any contacts, you know, with the black ops? What about your old daddy faison? Any of his cronies around?

[ Chuckles ] That’s funny. You know, I actually never thought of downloading his address book. Well, it wouldn’t work, anyway. We need someone closer to home, someone that is willing to plunge into danger, someone who is… stone cold. No. Yes. No. Yes. I’m not calling jason. Nothing kills lift and push and push! Thoctor aboutaustedo…it’s tim e to treat td. For smooth, luminous ski asking jason to find my mother is a terrible idea. I love liesl, and anna devane hates her. Now, listen, we got to pull out the big gun, and the big gun owes you. You don’t know the first thing about jason and me. Well, what — why — why don’t you enlighten me?

[ Scoffs ] We were two people who were on the run from some killers, okay? Yeah. Well, that happens every day. Look, we — we had some laughs. We dodged some bullets. That’s it. He doesn’t owe me anything, and I don’t know how to ask. Well, wait. Uh, whoa. Here you go. Let me script it for you. “Hey, jason…” f-forget it, scott!

[ Stammering ] Seriously. O-o-okay, I-I know you don’t want to go crawling to jason.

[ Scoffs ] You want to be dignified in the afternoon. You don’t want to look pathetic. But how are you going to feel if your mother never comes home? Are you going to say, “wow, at least I have my dignity”?!

[ Scoffs ]

[ Sighs ] Don’t overthink this, liv. Austin is clearly trying to divide and conquer. He wants our family to be confused and distracted so that we can’t present a united front against him. You think my son has autism? Look, I got the good doctor breaking confidentiality so I could bring it to britt. She’s getting the — the disciplinary board involved. He might even lose his medical license. There’s no way he’s gonna have time to fight for a piece of elq. He’ll be too busy fighting to stay a doctor. Yeah, yeah, I-I — I-I see what you’re doing. You do? I’ve just got one question for you — what is my son to you? A brother? Or just a means to an end?

[ Cellphone rings ]

[ Ringing stops ] What’s up, boss? I know you’re not on the schedule tonight, but I need you to come in. What’s the medical emergency? I just need you to come in now. Uh, okay. Maybe next time we can help each other out. Maybe next time we can get that beer. You know, I wasn’t joking about boxer’s knuckles. As hard as you hit that thing, you need to be careful. Good luck. Thank you, jason. Good luck to you, too. Looks like it… took a beating when I threw it away. Yeah. Nothing a little cleaning and repair can’t fix.

[ Clears throat ] I just… don’t want to put it on. I don’t want to take it off. I — you know, ’cause my dad loved this watch, and he recognized it, you know, when he barely recognized anything, and I don’t know why I would throw it away. Now you have it back. It’s true, you know? In life, as in music, timing is everything. What do you mean? Well, phyllis walked past lenny’s old fishing haunt to rescue your watch, and you returned home on jason and carly’s wedding night just in time to stop. Carly. You’re right about one thing — timing is everything.

[ Door opens, closes ]

[ Exhales sharply ] I was hoping that you and i could collaborate for avery’s benefit. I did not mean to start anything, honestly. I will tell sonny that you’d like to speak to him. Thank you. I-I-I’d like to see avery tomorrow. So maybe then the three of us could sit and — and talk about custody. Sure, should be easy. We’ve done this before. Well, yeah, you, me, and sonny, not you, me, and…mike. There’s no “mike.” Are you sure? It’s not like sonny has forgotten the life he led for all of those nine long months, right? All those experiences — they’re still with him. Just like all your experiences are still with you.

[ Indistinct conversations in distance ]

[ Box rattles ] Peppermint. Okay, I-I guess I was a little harsh. You called me “pathetic.”

H-hypothetically pathetic. If I don’t swallow my pride and ask for help from a guy who dumped me to marry his best friend. Well, that marriage didn’t make it to the break of day. Well, how does that make it better? Well, okay. Um, so, did your mother ever tell you about a little thing called


Schadenfreude? My german is schlecht. Mm-hmm. Well, yes. Mine’s intact.

[ Chuckles ] So, I-I have an idea. Mac scorpio — he’s been a gun for hire. Maybe he knows someone. No. Hell, maybe he’ll do the job himself. He hates peter august. No, no. Mac needs to stay with maxie.

[ Sighs ] I will think about talking to jason. Okay? But don’t get your hopes up. He’s got his own priorities. I doubt my problems are among them. Hey, jason, sonny’s not answering his cell. Is he with you? I-I haven’t seen him. Is everything okay?

[ Sighs ] I’m not sure. I just had a run-in with ava about avery. I don’t know. Maybe it’s nothing. Ah, it’s never nothing with ava. Yeah, that’s true.

[ Breathes deeply ] Anyway, don’t worry about it. I’ll talk to you later. Bye. Of course I’m doing this for leo, I love him. I’m sure you do. I’m also sure you wouldn’t think twice about exploiting him for your own gain. I’m only telling the truth. Okay? Austin violated hipaa rules when he told me leo might have autism. Now, he could say I misunderstood, and I will agree with him if he drops the lawsuit. Why would I care about any of this? You think my son is autistic! Austin doesn’t have the authority to make that kind of diagnosis. He barely even knows leo.

[ Breathes sharply ] Look, you might want to take him to see a pediatrician who specializes in this sort of thing, just to be absolutely sure. Oh, my god. I cannot believe we are having this conversation. I am so damn sick of you quartermaines always putting your company in front of your family! Olivia… dr. Gatlin-holt, thank you for coming in on such short notice. What’s the problem? You are. My office. It looks a little imbalanced. I tell you what — if you just switch the models’ pictures, I-it might look a little bit more balanced, yeah.

[ Knock on door ] Nina!

[ Whispering ] I’m in the middle of something.

[ Whispering ] Oh, you could say that again. You’ve been living a double life, haven’t you? Here you go. Thanks.

[ Door closes ] My chair. Yeah, I, uh, I put it in storage. And I, you know, I was using different one. You don’t like my chair? Just, you know, it didn’T… didn’t seem right. But now everything is, uh, back to the way that you left it. Mm, yeah. What’s, uh — what’s up? Something on your mind? Yeah, you and carly.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Eli: Oh, this man’s on a roll.

Abe: Of course I am! The woman said yes.

Lani: I still cannot believe that my aunt and my dad are getting married.

Abe: Well, indeed we are, so I would like us to raise glasses and have a toast to love.

Paulina: Oh.

Eli: To love.

Lani: To love.

Abe: Love, to love.

Paulina: Oh, and let’s not forget about marriage.

Abe: Oh, that’s right. Cheers.

Abigail: So is that why you want to play john in the movie? You don’t want me to have a sex scene with another man? I mean, you do realize I’m gonna be acting, right?

Chad: Yes, of course. I was just–I was kidding.

Abigail: Were you? ‘Cause your jealousy is kind of what got us into trouble, in the first place.

Chad: I was wrong about you and jake. I regret ever going there. You know that.

Abigail: Well, I don’t know. I’m kind of starting to wonder if it’s happening again. Do you want johnny to give you the part in the movie because you don’t trust me with ej?

Chad: No, it’s got nothing to do with him. I just want to spend time with you as much as I can. And I think that doing this movie will be good for us.

Abigail: Really?

Chad: Yes. I have a feeling that this could bring us closer.

John: Hey.

Roman: Hey, I’m sorry for coming by so late without calling first, but I just wanted to let know I told johnny i won’t help him fund that movie.

John: Nice. Thank you, roman. I know that wasn’t easy.

Roman: No, but you’re right. The last thing we want is for marlena to have to relive that time.

John: I hear you. Hey, come on in.

Roman: Okay.

John: So tell me, how did johnny take the news?

Roman: Well, I just explained to him that when I agreed to invest I thought he was doing a movie about sami. And now, it’s all about this devil business, and I just think that telling that story is not a good idea.

John: Yeah, well, I’m sure he was disappointed.

Roman: Yes he was, and I, you know, I felt bad about having to let him down, but we’ll get past it. The important thing is that we do everything we can to protect marlena.

John: Amen to that.

Just let go, marlena. Give in to me. Give in to me. Give in to me.

[Dramatic music]

Excellent. You’re finally starting to let go. You’re almost there, marlena. We have already achieved so much together. If you let me back in, there will be no limit to what we can accomplish. But we cannot delay. Our time is now. I need you to be mine tonight.

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

[Soft orchestration]


[Soft music]


Ciara: Was that just me, or did that feel different? Extra special?

Ben: It was definitely not just you.

Ciara: I didn’t think it was.

Ben: Uh-uh.

Ciara: And that kind of has me wondering.

Ben: Oh, yeah? What are you wondering, my love?

Ciara: I’m wondering if we just made a baby.


[Ominous music]

Babe, what was that? Is there a storm coming or…

Ben: Everything looks clear.

Ciara: So then what made the window fly open?

Ben: I have no idea. Maybe it’s just a big gust of wind?

Ciara: That appeared out of nowhere, and just disappeared? That’s pretty weird, ben.

Ben: I really hope that wasn’t, like, some kind of bad omen.

Ciara: Bad omen of what?

You should be very proud of what you’ve helped me accomplish so far. You attacked julie williams, in the hospital, and convinced everyone it was her husband doug. You had him committed to bayview, so you would not expose our collaboration. Then, best of all, you persuaded ben weston to father a child, to bring his and ciara’s baby into the world. You convinced him to let go of all of his fears about the future. Now, marlena, you must let go of yours. Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Abigail: So you think us acting together would bring us closer?

Chad: I do.

Abigail: Hmm. Well, what if I turn out to be a big diva on set?

Chad: Wouldn’t care if you were.

Abigail: No?

Chad: No.

Abigail: It’s not gonna bother you if I insist my room is stocked daily with purple hydrangeas and chocolate-covered pretzels?

Chad: It’s an independent film with a shoestring budget. I don’t think anybody’s gonna be getting a dressing room.

Abigail: I want the pretzels. Milk chocolate.

Chad: Okay.

Abigail: Not dark.

Chad: All right, you got it. But I do think that playing john and marlena would be really cool. I mean, just think of everything that they’ve overcome, all of the times that they’ve been separated, and they got back together. And they just keep getting stronger and stronger. It’s a really beautiful love story they have.

Abigail: They’re a real super couple.

Chad: Yes they are. It gives me hope that we can come back together. And who knows? Maybe, by the time the film is done, we’ll be able to sleep in the same room.

John: You know, when I saw that revised script, I almost blew a gasket.

Roman: Did you talk to marlena, tell her what’s going on?

John: Well, you know, I was going to, but when I got over to the hospital, she was so upset.

Roman: About what?

John: Well, she had this really heavy therapy session with ben weston, and I guess she didn’t like the way the session went. She wanted to talk to him some more, but, roman, she was so drained. I said, “no, no, honey, time for you to shut it down tonight.” I brought her home, and she got right into bed.

Roman: Okay. So she doesn’t know the new direction johnny’s going in?

John: You know, maybe I’m being a little overprotective by not telling her, but she’s been having such a rough time lately, I just didn’t want to pile on.

Roman: Okay, was she upset about something else other than ben?

John: Doug.

Roman: Oh, oh, yeah, doug. God, that poor guy. Not in his right mind. I mean he even attacked his own wife, and I mean, marlena did what she had to do, to protect him and everybody else.

John: Told her the exact same thing, but she still feels like she failed doug. I think that’s why she’s so driven to try to help ben right now.

Ciara: Ben, what do you mean by “bad omen”?

Ben: I don’t know.

Ciara: Ben, what happened? You were feeling so good earlier, so optimistic after seeing marlena.

Ben: I was, and I am. I am.

Ciara: So then why are you talking about bad omens?

Ben: I just think it’s kinda strange. You know, I mean, you decide to throw away your birth control pills, we make love, and then you wonder out loud if we just made a baby. And then, all of a sudden, the windows blast open, and all the candles blow out.

Ciara: So what are you saying, what do you think that means? You think someone’s trying to warn us not to get pregnant?

Ben and ciara’s child is so important for the future. I want that baby. I need that baby for myself.

[Dramatic music]

– Oh…oh. – What’s going on?

Ciara: Ben, answer me. Do you think that some unknown force is trying to warn us not to get pregnant?

Ben: Of course not, no, baby. I know it was just the wind.

Ciara: Ben? You promised me that you’d be honest with me from now on. Baby, what’s going on?

Ben: I guess I’m just just a little nervous about having a baby.

John: I’m telling you, roman. Doc is just really beating herself up lately.

Roman: She’s a great doctor, the best; everybody knows that.

John: Yeah, I know, but still she feels like she failed doug. And then she had to make that painful decision to have him committed there. It’s just kind of shaken her confidence.

Roman: Well, you know, hopefully get some rest’ll help.

John: Yeah, yeah, I think she’s too wired to sleep though. That’s why I made her some tea. Probably should run it in to her.

Roman: Yeah, good call. You know what? If you need anything, either one of you, just say the word.

John: Oh, thanks, man. And thank you again for backing out of that film. I mean, even though it’s just gonna be on the big screen, we don’t need that particular bit of history repeating itself.

I can feel you’re still fighting me, that you’re not ready to fully commit. I know you’ve always done everything for everyone else and nothing for yourself. Except when you let me in and feel my power coursing through your veins. You need to let yourself go completely and feel that way again. Perhaps you’d be more open to the idea if you knew my plans, which can only come to fruition with your help. You can never go back on the approval you gave ben to bring a child into the world. The future is in your hands, marlena. I think it’s time that I share with you exactly what I have in store for that child.

Abigail: Chad.

Chad: Now, I’m not trying to pressure you at all. I just miss sharing a room with you, and a bed. But I know you’re not ready for that, and I respect that. And I would never try to skip past everything that I have to do to make things right between us anyway. I just–I’m just expressing hope for the future.

Abigail: Well, it’s like i told you in boston. There’s nothing I want more than to be able to trust in our marriage again and our love.

Chad: And you’re not there yet. I understand. And I’ll wait as long as it takes. But I just want you to know I love you. I always have, and I always will.

[Soft music]

And that’s just about what i wanted to say. I’ll let you go to bed.

Abigail: Hold on.

Chad: What?

Abigail: Why don’t you stay in my room tonight? This is the sound of an asthma attack…

Chad: What did you say?

Abigail: I think you heard me.

Chad: I did–I think I did. I just–I wanted to make sure.

Abigail: [Sighs] Ever since I came home, I’ve kept you at arm’s length. But you’ve been very patient, and you’ve been understanding, and you’ve been devoted, and you’ve taken care of the kids. You’ve taken care of me and given me the time and space that I need. Everything I have asked, you have done and more, and so, I think it’s time I let you back in.

[Soft music]


Ciara: Oh, baby. I didn’t expect one session with marlena to magically erase all of your reservations. I mean, having a baby is still a huge step, no matter what. It’s life-changing, so it makes sense for the both of us to be a little bit nervous. I’m nervous, too, baby, as much as I am excited about the idea.

Ben: But we will stay on it, and we’ll just be hopeful that I don’t pass down any of the mental illness I had to our child, and if, god forbid, we see any signs at all that I did, we find treatment.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Ben: Right away.

Ciara: Mm-hmm, that’s right.

Ben: I’m sorry for freaking out. It’s just that you could be pregnant right now.

Ciara: Well, the odds are pretty slim for the first try. And so that means we are gonna have to try again, and again, and again, and again, and again.

Ben: And again.

Ciara: And again.

Ben: I am down for that.

Ciara: Hmm?

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: Although, honestly, weston, between the two of us, I am getting the short end of the stick here.

Ben: What do you mean short?

Ciara: Well–

Ben: What?

Ciara: I mean that I’m gonna be the one to gain all the weight, I’m gonna wake up with the morning sickness, the swollen ankles. All you’re gonna have to do is run to the store and get me my cravings whenever I want.

Ben: Mm-hmm, and I’m going to love every minute of it. In fact, what can I get you right now? Ice cream, pickles? What can I get you?

Ciara: Just this, babe.

My plan for ben and ciara’s baby is so monumental, so magnificent, and it all begins with–

John: Hey, doc, still awake?

Damn that john black, always trying to come between us.

John: What the heck? Is this thing locked?

Just ignore him, marlena. He’ll go away.

John: What the hell’s going on in there? Looks like it’s stuck. Hey, doc, are you okay in there? Doc? Hang on, doc, I’m coming! Come on!

Tackling tough messes can

take more time than you have,

[Soft music]


John: Hey, sweetheart. You okay, honey?

Marlena: Oh, yeah.

John: Hey, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to wake you up. I just got really worried when I couldn’t open the door, and I swear I heard some voices in here.

Paulina: One key lime pie to go.

Eli: Oh, you know I’m gonna enjoy this.

Paulina: Well, to each his own, baby, to each his own.

Eli: Hey, and congrats again.

Lani: Oh, thank you so much for dinner.

Paulina: Mm-hmm.

Eli: Oh, bring it in. Bring it in.

Paulina: Aw.

Eli: I love you guys.

Abe: Oh, hey, take care.

Eli: See you guys later.

Paulina: Goodnight.

Eli: Goodnight.

Abe: That was a lovely evening, don’t you think?

Paulina: Hm.

Abe: Everything okay?

Paulina: I can’t believe I asked lani to call me mama. What was I thinking?

Abe: Hey, you know, you shouldn’t be so hard on yourself, just got carried away. Now, I know how you feel. Being lani’s dad is–it means everything to me.

Paulina: Well, after all that celebrating, I am wiped out. I think I’ll get ready for bed.

Abe: You know, let me ask you this–now that we are engaged, when do you want to do this?

Paulina: You mean, you want to set a date?

Abe: Yeah, any thoughts?

Paulina: Well, I guess that depends upon if you want a big wedding or a small one. Big takes a lot more planning.

Abe: Well, if it was left up to me, I’d do it tomorrow.

Paulina: I guess we’ll be having a small one.

Abe: So I will defer to my bride.

Paulina: Abraham, we are on the same page about pie and wanting our wedding to be an intimate affair. And now, for our first big challenge after becoming engaged–

Abe: Challenge? What do you mean?

Paulina: Finding a free date for both of us when we can get hitched–ah!

[Soft music]


Ciara: I don’t really want any food right now, do you?

Ben: Not really, kinda tired.

Ciara: Yeah, me too, but I don’t think I can go to sleep quite yet. Maybe there is something good on tv.

Ben: Yeah, check it out. I’ll watch anything.

Ciara: Okay.

Oh, my god. It’s “rosemary’s baby.”


John: Were you on your phone?

Marlena: No, I was asleep.

John: Maybe the voices came from that. Sound machine might have switched over to the radio or something. It looks fine to me.

Marlena: Oh. Well, I didn’t hear anything. Maybe I was talking in my sleep. What did you hear me say?

John: I’m not sure. I was out in the hall. Everything was mumbled.

Marlena: Okay.

John: No, no, no. Where are you going?

Marlena: Well, honey, I’ve been awfully worried about ben. I want to get dressed and go check on him.

John: No, no, you need to rest. You can talk to ben tomorrow.

Marlena: No, I don’t think–

John: He’s gonna be fine. He’ll be fine.

Marlena: It’s not–

John: He’ll be fine. Right now, I’m a lot more concerned about you, okay?


For once in my life,

I feel a little good

thing inside

looking in your eyes

I only want to love you

and hold you tight

I feel fine

because you’re mine

we’re in the light

dancing in the light

of love

holding you tight

tripping in the light

of loving


my world is gonna shine

because you’re mine

because you’re mine, mine

because you’re mine, mine

because you’re mine

because you’re mine

because you’re mine

because you’re mine

because you’re mine

because you’re mine your mission:

Eli: Hey, roman.

Roman: Hey, well, look at you two out on the town.

Lani: Yeah, we were just out at dinner celebrating.

Eli: Yeah, abe and paulina got engaged last night.

Roman: Oh, great, I like it.

Lani: Yeah, we’re really happy for them both.

Roman: Yeah, so am I. I didn’t think he’d propose this soon, but they do seem like a great match.

Eli: Made in heaven.

Paulina: So you thinking, like, a saturday night vibe or more easy like sunday morning?

Abe: Well, I have no preference. You know, of course I like having a nice wedding, but it’s the marriage. It’s the marriage that’s important.

Paulina: Abraham, we are on the same page. So how about mid-december?

Abe: Yeah, that’s almost too close to the holidays.

Paulina: Right, right.

Abe: Yeah. How do you feel about earlier in january?

Paulina: Hmm, oh, no good. I’m breaking ground on a project in bal harbour, and that time of year in salem, kinda bleak, no?

Abe: Yeah, I see. I see what you mean, yeah. Well, how about the third week in november?

Paulina: Well, that actually could work.

Abe: Ooh, that’s great. That would be more than a month’s notice, so theo and brandon could arrange to be here too.

Paulina: Oh, you think we could pull it all together by then?

Abe: I think anything we put our minds to will work.

Paulina: Well, then it’s all settled. A little more than a month from now, we’ll be husband and wife.

Abe: Ooh.

Paulina: Oh.

Ben: Why’d you turn it off?

Ciara: It’s a horror movie, and it’s not really what I want in my head right before I go to sleep.

Ben: Is it about a woman who gives birth to the devil’s baby? Just seems pretty dumb.

Ciara: It wasn’t a bad omen, ben.

Ben: What do you mean?

Ciara: That movie coming on was totally random. No one is trying to tell you that you’re evil and that I’m rosemary.

Ben: I mean, who said that?

Ciara: I can see it in your eyes, babe. You’re freaked out that I landed on that movie. Am I right? Baby, I am not some submissive pixie, and you are not evil. You are the best. You are a loving, caring, wonderful man, and you are gonna make the most amazing father. I know it because it’s true. And you’ve come way too far and worked way too hard to let fear ruin that. So let’s just forget about all of this nonsense that happened and focus on what is really real, and that is our love for each other.

[Soft music]


John: Here you go.

Marlena: Chamomile?

John: Hope it helps.

Marlena: Oh, I guess i thought it would be hot.

John: Yeah, well, I was on my way to bring it to you when roman stopped by.

Marlena: Oh, roman came by? Why?

John: We’ll talk about it later–tell you what I’ll do. I’ll go heat this up, okay?

Marlena: Hey, why don’t we talk about it now?

John: Well, I was going to, but I know that you were kind of upset about ben. Johnny has decided to rename his movie from “the sami brady story,” to “the marlena evans story.”

Marlena: Why would he change a movie about sami to a movie about me?

John: Well, apparently he’s fascinated about your past, specifically when you were… when you were… marlena: Possessed by the devil.

John: You know, I was upset enough just by knowing it was gonna be a part in the movie. Now, the whole damn movie’s gonna be about it.

Marlena: Oh, no.

John: But don’t worry about that; that’s why roman came by. He told me he changed his mind about investing. Johnny’s having a hard time coming up with the cash ’cause practically everybody has said no.

Marlena: So he won’t be able to make the movie?

John: I’m not gonna let him.

Marlena: That was his dream.

John: His dream was to make a film, and he can still do that. He’s just not gonna do this one, ’cause the last thing you need is to have to relive that part of your life, honey.

Chad: I can’t believe this is real. I mean, I’ve wanted this and you for so long. But I…

Abigail: What?

Chad: I just–I have to ask you something, but I don’t know if I should.

Abigail: You can ask me anything.

Chad: So does this mean we’re back together? When I heard about the science behind the new

Abigail: I don’t want to shut you out anymore; I want to be close to you.

Chad: I want that too, more than anything.

Abigail: But I think we also have to be realistic about where we are, you know? Our problems don’t disappear just because we made love. We’ve still got a lot of things to work on, and I’ve got a lot of things to work on. Everything–the guilt that I feel, after everything that happened with gwen’s baby, and… but I don’t want to work on things alone. Moving forward, I would like to work on everything together.

Chad: We will, I promise.

[Soft music]


Abe: Look how far we’ve come. It’s all because of you.

Paulina: Me, really? What did I do?

Abe: You kept your promise not to hide things anymore, no more secrets, no more lies. I mean, ever since, it’s just been wonderful. You made peace with your daughter, with my daughter, with me. I’ve never been happier. And I hope you feel the same way.

Paulina: Of course I do. Of course. Oh, mm.

Lani: Okay. The babies are asleep thanks to our excellent nanny. And thank you for cleaning up.

Eli: No problem, but now I am in the mood for something sweet.

Lani: You have got to be kidding me. I don’t ever want to see another pie for as long as I live.

Eli: No, no, I’m not talking about a pie. No pecan pie, or key lime pie, or florida lime pie.

Lani: Mm-hmm.

Eli: I want some lani pie.

Lani: Oh. Well, come get it.


Ciara: Are you sure you’re okay?

Ben: Yeah, I am.

Ciara: No more worries about random gusts of wind or horror movies with devil babies?

Ben: No, no, no, no. Dr. Evans made me see that there is no reason why we shouldn’t have a child. And god forbid, any issues come up, we’ll handle it together, like we handle everything. We are gonna make the most beautiful family together.

Ciara: Oh, my god. I love you so much.

Ben: I love you so much. You can barely keep these eyes open.

Ciara: Yeah, I’m tired. Will you hold me? I want to fall asleep in your arms.

[Soft music]


John: I hope you’re not upset with me and my bringing up that movie.

Marlena: No, of course not.

John: All right, you know I support johnny. Just that he needs to understand that this project, it’s never gonna happen.

Marlena: I assume you you talked to him?

John: Well, you know I did. And so did allie, but I think he needs to hear it from you. And I was just thinking that, once you were feeling better, you know, you could talk him out of it, but now I don’t even think you’re gonna have to have that conversation.

Marlena: Oh, well, I’m glad for that.

John: And everything that is in the past is gonna stay in the past where it belongs. And it’s just gonna be smooth sailing for me and you, baby, from now on out.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Upbeat music ]

Zende: So, you don’t like the neck line?

Thomas: I do, on paper, but I don’t think this fabric will allow the neck line to fall like you really want it to.

Zende: It could. Remember the way it’s stitched… kind of holds up.

Thomas: Right, I’m saying, I like the design. It’s just honestly, with this fabric, it’s not gonna work.

Zende: I disagree.

Thomas: Okay, hope. What do you think?

Zende: Is everything okay?

Hope: Uh, yeah. Yes. Everything is okay.

[ Sighs ] All right, well I might as well tell you. I’m honestly surprised you haven’t heard donna or pam gossiping about it but… my dad is out of prison. He’s back in town.

Thomas: Deacon?

[ Man groaning ]

[ Clinking ]

Deacon: Dammit sheila, dammit! Come on, come on!

[ Sheila giggling ] God. Ugh.

Sheila: I hear the third cup is a charm. But you surprised me. I really thought someone like you would hold their liquor better.

Deacon: Your bedside manner sucks.

Sheila: Well, excuse my frustration. I hauled you up here, you passed out. That was not my idea of a great night.

Deacon: Oh, what’s a matter, were you expecting a little something else?

Sheila: I wouldn’t touch you deacon, even if I wanted to slap you. Now can we just call it straight on the children?

Deacon: You know, coming up here was a mistake, and hooking up with you is a recipe for disaster. Sheila, if I’m gonna have any relationship with my daughter, come on. I can’t be anywhere near you.

Sheila: You’re never gonna get past liam and the forresters on your own.

Deacon: Well, you know, that’s not really any of your business. Same as whatever’s going on with your son has nothing to do with me.

Sheila: Your daughter hung up on you last night.

Deacon: She wants to have a relationship with me. I mean why else would she have written me all the letters in prison? You know, I just… I just gotta get through to her. And I’m gonna make that happen. Today.

Zende: On a scale from one to ten, how freaked out do you think hope is right now?

Thomas: Look, deacon is about as low as they get, but hope has a soft spot for him.

Zende: He is her dad, right?

Thomas: Yeah, I don’t know if it’s that, though. It’s like hope has this ability to see good in people no matter who they are.

Zende: Talkin’ about liam?

Thomas: Talkin’ about me. But you know, I don’t know what deacon being back means for hope or her family.

Paris: Hey, sorry. I don’t want to be an interruption.

Zende: You could never be an interruption.

Paris: Hi. I was looking for hope. I wanted to go over some forrester foundation stuff.

Thomas: Yeah, actually she just stepped out. She’s on a conference call.

Paris: Is everything all right? I heard you mention deacon, and what it might mean for hope. Who is deacon?

Thomas: That’s a long, ugly story.

Zende: Featuring hope’s father.

Hope: No, the pleasure’s all mine. All right. We’ll talk soon.

Deacon: Shh, it’s okay. It’s dad. It’s dad. It’s me.

Hope: Dad, hi.

Deacon: Hey. I had to get past security.

Hope: How did you know I would be in here and I was alone?

Deacon: I got my ways. You know, I tried to call you last night.

Hope: Yeah, but dad, you can’t be here.

Deacon: Yeah, I know, I know.

Hope: If someone sees you–

Deacon: I’m complicating your life. I know, I’m sorry. I just want to say I’m sorry for everything. I know I’ve said it before. I know I’ve let you down. I just– I want you to understand, I’m different now.

Hope: Why should I believe you this time?

Deacon: I was in my cell, and I was reading. I was reading one of your letters, and it got me thinking about my past. I’ve got so many regrets, and you were talking about that doctor, the one who stole your baby and you thought you’d lost your daughter. Only to be reunited months later. And you were talking about the hurt. The thought of losing another child was the worst hurt you’d ever gone through. And that the pain was so bad that you… you thought you might die. And… the fact that I couldn’t be there for you. The fact that I couldn’t just hold you and… um, wipe away your tears. It just–I… it broke me. And I said to myself that if I ever get out of there, I will do whatever it takes to be a part of your life. Hope, please. I know that I can be the father you deserve. Just give me another chance.

From the very first touch,

Thomas: Apparently hope has been sending deacon letters for quite some time.

Paris: So, she really wants to connect with him.

Zende: He will definitely use her love to get what he wants.

Paris: And that is?

Thomas: I don’t know exactly, but I’m sure it’ll be self-serving.

Zende: It usually ends up with hope being hurt.

[ Phone chiming ]

Thomas: Finally!

Zende: What is it?

Thomas: My realtor said that my seller’s agreed to the reduction. The deal’s closed. Drawing up the paperwork. Yes!

Paris: Oh wow, congratulations!

Zende: Finally! I feel like they were giving you the run around for a while.

Thomas: Yeah, but you know what? This place is worth it. It’s perfect for me.

Zende: So, what are you gonna do with your apartment?

Thomas: I’ll just sublet it. Wait a minute, you’ve been living with your friend after you moved out of steffy and finn’s, right?

Paris: Yeah, finding the right place has been really hard.

Thomas: Okay, well, why don’t you, why don’t you just take my apartment? It’s fully furnished.

Paris: What? No. No, I can’T.

Thomas: Seriously. You can have it for free.

Paris: No, thomas, that’s way too much.

Thomas: It’s not too much, you’re a part of the forrester family. We’re friends, okay? This is what friends do for each other. Look, at least come take a look at it. And if you like it, it’s yours.

Paris: Okay, but I’m going to pay my own way. There are a lot of people out there who can’t, and I am fortunate.

Thomas: Okay.

Paris: Thank you.

Thomas: I actually need to head over there right now if you want to see it.

Paris: Yeah, I’d love to.

Zende: See? I told you it would all work out.

Deacon: I know I can be a terrific father. I really can. I just need the chance to prove it. I also know that you’ve got a lot of people buzzing in your ear telling you horrible stuff about me, and sadly, it’s true. But, but, what’s also true is that I love you. Look, I just… I just want a chance to be the father that you deserve. I wanna be a grandfather to beth. Please. Please, I’m so excited to meet her. I just… want to be back in your life.

Hope: I don’t know what to believe.

Deacon: Hope, just–

Hope: Dad, no. I don’t–

[ Sighing ] I don’t know. Okay, I do know that mom, and ridge and liam certainly don’t want you in my life.

Deacon: Is that what you want?

Hope: I just… I think I just want all of this to slow down. You know, maybe if we grab a coffee or lunch, or something, in public. But you coming here like this. I mean, dad, that’s not a good idea.

Deacon: Is this you talking, or is this them?

[ Door opening ]

Liam: What the hell are you doing here?

Deacon: I came to see my daughter. Like it or not, liam. I’m her father.

Liam: Oh yeah, you’re her father all right. And what kind of father have you been?

Deacon: You know, I’ve been a pretty awful one. Which is exactly why I’m here asking for a second chance. Look, I didn’t come here to con, I didn’t come here to manipulate. I just want a relationship with my daughter. And I want to see beth.

Liam: Absolutely… absolutely not!

Hope: Liam, please.

Liam: Hope, this is what deacon does. Right here, right now. This is it. He’s doing iT.

Deacon: Deep down, hope wants to have a relationship with me.

Liam: Oh my god, get out! Get out! You have caused hope and her entire family nothing but pain.

Deacon: All right, I didn’t come to fight, I just came to tell my daughter… that you have grown up into a beautiful, exceptional woman. Hope, I love you.

Thomas: So, now that I got the house, I mean, you could move in today if you think it’s a good fit.

Paris: It’s great.

Thomas: Well, it’s a great neighborhood, there is a place for pizza right around the corner, and they have live music. They also, after four P.M., You can get all you can eat wings for like ten bucks.

Paris: Mm. Now you’re speaking my language. I thought super rich la guys were just into quinoa and green juice.

Thomas: Ew, no. No, no, no. Look, I know this place isn’t exactly my sister’S. It’s not in malibu, it’s not right on the beach, but it’s–

Paris: Well, it’s perfect. And I’m way more of a city girl than a beach bunny, anyways.

Thomas: Ah.

Paris: Are you sure about this?

Thomas: Yeah, yeah. No, I got my new place, so– actually, I can text over to the management company, have them send you the sublet paperwork right now. Um, look, paris, I’d love for you to live here.

Paris: Deal. Thank you so much.

Thomas: Oh, yeah.

Liam: God, the fact alone that we would just show up like that. You okay?

Hope: Yeah, I’m fine.

Liam: By the way, how did he get past security, ’cause don’t they have a whole–

Hope: Liam, I appreciate that you’re so worried about me, but I really wish you weren’t so harsh with him.

Liam: I’m harsh because I’m trying to protect you. Okay, I know… I know I’m coming on real strong here. I see that. And I know it’s overbearing. But, hope, you have such a good heart. I mean, you have the biggest heart out of anybody I know.

Hope: But…

Liam: But, it makes you vulnerable. Like, people like deacon and sheila, they’re just not the kind of people that change. Even if they really want to.

Hope: And what if you’re wrong about him? You know, he’s had a lot of time to think about his life and what he wants and… is it that crazy to think that he loves me enough to change?

Liam: You tell me. Are you willing to take that gamble? I know I’m being harsh, I just don’t want him to hurt you anymore than he already has. And the best way to achieve that is to not let him be a part of your life.

[ Door knocking ]

Deacon: Hey.

Sheila: That bad, huh? Sorry.

Deacon: Yeah, sure.

Sheila: I mean it. I know what it’s like to be rejected by your child.

Deacon: Yeah, but see, that’s just it. That’s just it. I wasn’t rejected. Hope and I were standing there and she wanted to give me another chance. And then…liam walks in.

Sheila: What’d he say?

Deacon: What did he say? He talked to me like I was a piece of garbage. Like I was nothing. I have spent so much time fighting the forresters, and now I gotta fight liam spencer?

Sheila: Yeah, well, I have fought the forresters, too. And now I have to contend with steffy.

Deacon: Maybe we’re the problem. Maybe we ought to… maybe we ought to just quit. Sheila, the forresters are never gonna let you around them.

Sheila: You’re telling me to give up on finn and hayes? My own son and grandson?

Deacon: You’re never gonna have a relationship with them, so yes. Yes, before this goes too far because you are starting to get obsessed again. Everybody knows what happens when you think you should have something. I mean, you did it with lauren fenmore, you did it with eric forrester. Look, you just, you need to stop and realize what you can’t control. So, you need to leave your son, and the forresters the hell alone.

[ Sinister music ]

Thomas: Okay, so all this was already in your car.

Paris: Well, yeah. My friend didn’t have a lot of closet space, so.

Thomas: Oh, you want me to start moving this stuff to the bedroom?

Paris: No, no. You’ve already helped so much and I e-signed the sublet while I was out there.

Thomas: Oh, then this place is officially yours. Congratulations.

Paris: Thank you. And if you’re up for it, I would love to treat you to some of those wings that you were talking about. Show my gratitude.

Thomas: You’re on.

[ Phone ringing ] Oh, it’s my realtor. I gotta take this. But, make yourself at home. It is your home. Hello? Yeah. Okay. Am I sitting down? What do you mean? What? No, no, that’s not possible because they accepted my offer. Okay. All right, yeah. Okay, thanks.

[ Scoffs ] I can’t believe this. Um… well, I guess the seller backed out. He just gave the place to his buddy instead. I guess I’m not moving after all.

Deacon: I just came to tell my daughter that you have grown up into a beautiful, exceptional woman. Hope, I love you. If hope wants me out of her life… sheila: She said she wanted a relationship with you, then liam interfered.

Deacon: What could I do? That’s her husband. I mean, if for some reason, she doesn’t want me around, that’s how it’s gotta be. It’s the same thing with your son. I mean, if he doesn’t want you in his life, you gotta give him what he wants.

Sheila: What are you gonna do? What, are you gonna leave town? You’re gonna go from job to job?

Deacon: I don’t know what I’m gonna do, okay? But what I do know is that I haven’t earned a place in hope’s life. The same as you haven’t earned a place in finn’s life. Sheila, you know, maybe we just need to admit that we lost.

Sheila: You know what I hate more than anything, deacon? Someone with a defeatist attitude. A coward. Someone who gives up. No one had a perfect upbringing. But when there’s blood between a mother and a son, and a father and a daughter, you don’t give up. That blood bond is something that cannot be broken. I will have a place in my son’s life. In my grandson’s life. In the forresters’ life. Yu understand? Am I a mother that’s obsessed because I want to see my son? Yes. What’s really surprising me here right now is that you’re not. I thought you told me that you cared about hope.

Deacon: Hope means everything to me.

Sheila: Well, then do something about it. Together, we can get our kids back. But, you know what? If you would feel better crawling back into that bottle that you came out of, you go right ahead. But, I’m gonna be a part of my son’s life. I’m gonna be a part of my grandson’s life. And there is nothing that steffy and the forresters can do to stop me. I won’t stop until I get what I want. And you know what, deacon? I always get what I want. I always get what I want.

Philip told Jake if Gabi surrendered her company, he would stay a free man. Gabi refused to give up her company. Ava said reminded her that Jake was involved in a murder so he would do jail time. Gabi said she would never take Jake away from her. Ava told her that she was going to take over her company. Abby singed the contracts. EJ had his own papers drawn up for the movie. Chad and EJ signed the contract. Chad told Johnny that EJ had to sign another contract because he wanted to play John. EJ said he had contracts for the role of John. He said he signed it because he was going to be playing John.

Chad wanted to know what EJ was trying to pull. EJ said he wanted to help Johnny with his movie. Abby thought EJ was wrong. Chad wanted Johnny to revoke his contract. Philip knew that Jake and Gabi were working together to set him up. He said Gabi started it and he was fighting back. Gabi refused to give up her company than let Ava run it. Ava asked her if she wanted to let her boyfriend go to prison. Gabi threatened to go to Rafe and tell him that she was trying to steal her company. Jake warned Philip that Ava would feed him to the wolves to save her own hide. Ava told Gabi that Rafe wasn’t going to find out what she did because she was going to tell him about Jake. She said that he would investigate it. Gabi told her that Rafe would be suspicious if she’s suddenly running her company. Ava wanted her to make him believe why she was running it. Chad and Abby tried to convince Johnny to get rid of EJ as John. Johnny couldn’t do that because he would lose the funding he needed for the movie. Chad offered to pay the money, but EJ said the contract was already signed. Johnny promised them that it would be professional. Ava told Gabi that it was over for her. Philip said he wasn’t naïve when it concerned Ava. Jake told him that he would pay a price getting mixed up with the mob. He said the last time he did it Brady was shot. He said he might not be so lucky next time.

Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

Eli and Lani join Abe and Paulina at Paulina’s apartment. Abe proposes another toast. Eli jokes that he’s on a roll. Lani still can’t believe they are getting married. Abe toasts to love while Paulina toasts to marriage.

Abigail asks Chad if he wants to play John in the movie just so she doesn’t have a sex scene with another man even though she’s acting. Chad says he was kidding while Abigail reminds Chad that his jealousy is what got them in to trouble in the first place. Chad admits he was wrong about her and Jake and regrets ever going there. Abigail wonders if it’s happening again and questions if Chad wants the part in the movie because he doesn’t trust her with EJ. Chad assures it has nothing to do with EJ and he wants to spend as much time with her as he can, so he thinks doing the movie would be good for them. Chad feels that this could bring them closer.

While John is making Marlena’s tea, Roman shows up at the door and informs him that he told Johnny that he will not help fund his family. John thanks Roman and knows it wasn’t easy. Roman agrees that the last thing they want is for Marlena to have to relive that time. John invites Roman in and asks how Johnny took the news. Roman says he just explained that he was agreeing to invest in a movie on Sami and now it’s all about this devil business, so he thinks telling that story is not a good idea. John is sure Johnny was disappointed. Roman confirms that he was but they will get past it and the important thing is to do everything they can to protect Marlena.

The Devil urges Marlena to let go and give in to him. Marlena then begins levitating above her bed. The Devil tells her to let go as she’s almost there and they are going to achieve so much together. He adds that if she lets him in, there is no limit to what they can accomplish. He declares that their time is now so he needs her to be his tonight.

Ben and Ciara lay in bed together after having sex. Ciara felt like it felt extra special which Ben agrees with. Ciara wonders if they just made a baby. Their window then suddenly blows open and all of their things start to blow across their room, leaving them confused. Ben gets up and shuts the window. Ciara wonders if a storm is coming. Ben responds that everything looks clear. Ciara questions what made the window fly open then. Ben has no idea. Ciara finds it pretty weird that a gust of wind just appeared and disappeared. Ben hopes it wasn’t a bad omen.

Marlena remains levitating above her bed. The Devil tells her to be proud of what they have accomplished like attacking Julie and convincing everyone it was Doug, to commit him to Bayview so that they were not exposed, and best of all she convinced Ben to father a child with Ciara and let go of all his fears about the future. The Devil declares that now Marlena must let go of her fears.

Abigail questions Chad thinking that them acting together would bring them closer together. Abigail jokes that she could turn out to be a big diva on set. Chad says he wouldn’t care as they joke together. Chad thinks them playing John and Marlena would be really cool. Chad talks about all that John and Marlena have overcome, the times they’ve been separated and got back together, stronger. Chad calls it a really beautiful story. Abigail agrees that they are a real super couple. Chad says it gives him hope that they can come back together. Chad jokes that maybe by the time the film is done, they’ll be able to sleep in the same room.

John tells Roman that he almost blew a gasket when he saw Johnny’s revised script. Roman asks if he told Marlena what’s going on. John says he was going to, but when he got to the hospital, she was so upset after a really heavy therapy session with Ben Weston and she wanted to talk to him more but she was so drained, so he brought her home and she went right to bed. Roman questions Marlena not knowing the new direction of Johnny’s movie. John admits he may be being overprotective by not telling her but she’s been having such a rough time lately, so he didn’t want to pile on. Roman asks if she’s upset about something other than Ben. John reminds him about Doug. Roman feels Marlena did what she had to do to protect Doug and everyone else. John says he said the same thing but Marlena still feels to blame and guesses that’s why she is so driven to help Ben now.

Ciara questions what Ben means by worrying about a bad omen and asks what happened since he was so optimistic earlier after seeing Marlena. Ben assures that he still is but thinks it’s kind of strange that Ciara threw away her birth control pills, they make love, and she wonders if they made a baby then all of a sudden, the window blasts open and all the candles blow out. Ciara asks what he thinks that means and questions if someone is trying to warn them not to get pregnant.

The Devil tells Marlena that Ben and Ciara’s child is so important for the future as he needs the baby for himself.

Ciara asks Ben if he thinks some unknown force is trying to warn them not to get pregnant. Ben says of course not and that it was just the wind. Ciara reminds him that he promised to be honest from now on and asks him what’s going on. Ben guesses he’s just a little nervous about having a baby.

John tells Roman that Marlena has been beating herself up lately. Roman calls her the best doctor. John notes that she still feels that she failed Doug and that has shaken her confidence. Roman hopes some rest will help. John mentions making her tea since she was too wired to sleep. Roman tells him to just say the word if they need anything. John thanks Roman again for backing out of Johnny’s film since they don”t need that bit of history repeating itself…

The Devil feels Marlena fighting and not being ready to fully commit. He argues that she’s always done everything for everyone else and nothing for herself, except when she lets him in and feels his power through her veins. The Devil urges Marlena to let herself go completely and feel that way again. He says perhaps she would feel different if she knows his plans which could only happen with her help. The Devil warns that you can never go back on bringing a child in to the world, so their future is in Marlena’s hands. He decides it’s time to share with Marlena exactly what he has in mind for the child.

Chad tells Abigail that he’s not trying to pressure her at all, he just misses sharing a room and a bed with her. Chad knows she’s not ready for that and he respects that, so he’d never try to skip past all he has to do in order to make things right between them. Chad says he’s just expressing hope for the future. Abigail tells him that there’s nothing she wants more than to be able to trust in their marriage and love again. Chad understands she’s not there yet and agrees to wait as long as it takes. Chad tells Abigail that he loves her, always has, and always will. Chad says he will let her go to bed but Abigail stops him and invites him to stay in her room tonight. Chad questions if she’s sure. Abigail acknowledges that she’s kept him at arms length ever since coming home but he’s been very patient, understanding, and devoted. Abigail admits that Chad has done everything she has asked and more, so she thinks it’s time that she let him back in. Chad then kisses Abigail.

Ciara tells Ben that she didn’t expect one session with Marlena to magically erase all of his reservations since having a baby is still a huge step that is life changing, so it makes sense for them both to be nervous. Ciara admits that she is nervous too. Ben says they will stay on it and hope he doesn’t pass on the mental illness to their child, but if he does they will find treatment right away. Ben apologizes for freaking out, but notes that Ciara could be pregnant right now. Ciara says the odds are slim for the first try which means they will have to try again and again. Ben says he’s down for that as they kiss. Ciara talks about how she will be the one to gain weight and get morning sickness. Ben tells her that he will get her everything she wants and asks what she is craving. Ciara says just him as they continue kissing.

The Devil tells Marlena that his plan for Ben and Ciara’s baby is so magnificent. They are interrupted by John knocking at the door, asking if Marlena is still awake. The Devil complains that John is always trying to come between them as Marlena remains levitating above her bed. John tries to enter but is confused to find the door locked. The Devil urges Marlena to ignore John and he’ll go away. John wonders what is going on as he realizes the door is stuck. John calls out to Marlena and tells her to hang on as he’s coming. John then breaks the door open. John checks on Marlena laying in bed and asks if she’s okay. John says he didn’t mean to wake her up but he got worried when he couldn’t open the door and he swears he could hear voices in here…

Paulina gives Eli and Lani the key lime pie that she did not want. Eli congratulates them again as he and Lani hug Paulina and Abe. Eli and Lani then exit. Abe tells Paulina that it was a lovely evening and asks her if everything is okay. Paulina can’t believe she asked Lani to call her “mama” and asks what she was thinking. Abe understands that she got carried away as he knows how she feels. Abe remarks that being Lani’s dad means everything to him. Paulina decides to get ready for bed. Abe stops her to ask when she wants to get married as he wants to set a date. Paulina says that depends on if he wants a big wedding or small since big takes a lot of planning. Abe says if it were up to him, they’d do it tomorrow, so Paulina guesses they will have a small one. Paulina assures they are on the same page in wanting their wedding to be an intimate affair. Paulina jokes that their first big challenge will be finding a date that they are both free to get married.

Ciara and Ben agree they are both kind of tired but Ciara doesn’t think she can go to sleep just yet and suggests finding something on TV. Ciara then turns on the TV and sees that the movie Rosemary’s Baby is on.

John questions if Marlena was on her phone. Marlena claims that she was asleep. John guesses maybe the voices came from the noise machine switching over to radio or something. John checks the machine but says it looks fine to him. Marlena tells him that she didn’t hear anything and suggests she was talking in her sleep. Marlena asks what John heard her say. John says he’s not sure since he was out in the hall. Marlena brings up being worried about Ben so she wants to go check on him but John encourages her to rest and that she can talk to Ben tomorrow. Marlena tries to argue but John insists that Ben is fine and he’s more worried about her right now.

Chad and Abigail kiss as they enter her bedroom and begin to undress. Chad carries Abigail as they kiss onto the bed. Chad lights candles and they continue kissing in bed.

Roman heads to the Brady Pub and runs in to Eli and Lani outside. Eli and Lani inform him that Abe and Paulina got engaged last night. Roman says he’s happy for them, but didn’t think Abe would propose this soon. Roman admits they seem like a great match.

Paulina asks Abe if he’s thinking a Saturday night or a Sunday morning wedding. Abe says he has no preference. Abe says he’d like to have a nice wedding but it’s the marriage that’s important. Paulina agrees and suggests December. Abe worries that’s too close to the holidays, so he asks how she feels about early January. Paulina says that’s no good as she’s breaking ground on a project then. Abe asks about the third week of November. Paulina decides that could work. Abe says that’s more than a month’s notice so his sons Theo and Brandon could arrange to be there too. Paulina asks if he thinks they could pull it all together by then. Abe feels anything they put their minds to will work. Paulina declares that it’s all settled then and in a little over a month, they will be husband and wife as they kiss.

Ciara shuts off the TV which Ben questions. Ciara tells him a horror movie is not what she wants in her head right before going to sleep. Ben says that a movie about a woman giving birth to the Devil’s baby seems pretty dumb. Ciara insists it wasn’t a bad omen and that the movie coming on was totally random. Ciara argues that no one is trying to tell him that he’s evil and she’s Rosemary. Ciara can tell Ben is freaked out that she landed on that movie. Ciara insists that she’s not some submissive pixie and he’s not evil. Ciara calls him a loving, caring, wonderful man who will make the most amazing father. Ciara says that Ben has come way too far and worked too hard to let fear ruin that, so they will forget about all the nonsense and focus on what’s really real which is their love for each other.

John gives Marlena her tea and hopes it will make her feel better. Marlena questions the tea not being hot. John explains that he was bringing it to her when Roman stopped by. Marlena asks why he came. John says they will talk about it later and offers to go heat up her tea but Marlena wants to talk about it now. John brings up knowing she was upset about Ben. John then reveals to Marlena that Johnny decided to rename his movie from The Sami Brady Story to the Marlena Evans Story. Marlena questions why he would do that. John explains that Johnny is fascinated by her past, specifically when she was possessed by the Devil. John says he was upset enough that it would be a part of the movie, but now the whole damn movie is about it. John adds that Roman came by to tell him that he changed his mind about investing and Johnny is having a hard time coming up with the cash since everyone has said no. Marlena asks if he won’t be able to make the movie then. John responds that he won’t let him. Marlena points out that it was Johnny’s dream. John argues that Johnny’s dream is to make a film and he can still do that, just not this one, because the last thing Marlena needs is to have to relive that part of her life.

Chad and Abigail lay in bed after having sex. Chad can’t believe this is real as he’s wanted this and her for so long. Chad says he has to ask her something, but doesn’t know if he should. Abigail says he can ask her anything. Chad asks if this means they are back together. Abigail wants to be close to him and doesn’t want to shut him out. Chad says he wants that too more than anything. Abigail adds that they have to be realistic about where they are as their problems don’t just disappear because they made love and they still have a lot to work on. Abigail brings up her guilt over what happened with Gwen’s baby, but she doesn’t want to work on them alone. Abigail declares that she’d like to work on everything together moving forward. Chad promises that they will as he hugs her.

Abe tells Paulina to look at how far they’ve come and says it’s all because of her keeping her promise not to hide things anymore, no more secrets or lies. Abe says ever since, things have been wonderful. Abe adds that Paulina made peace with her daughter, his daughter, and with him. Abe declares that he’s never been happier and hope she feels the same way. Paulina assures that she does as they hug.

Lani tells Eli that the babies are asleep thanks to their nanny and thanks Eli for cleaning up. Eli says now he’s in the mood for her as they kiss and then they head to the bedroom.

Ciara asks if Ben is sure he’s okay. Ben says that he is. Ciara asks if he has no more worries about random gusts of wind or horror movies with devil babies. Ben states that Marlena made him see that there’s no reason they shouldn’t have a child and if any issues come up, they will handle it together like they handle everything. Ben declares they will make the most beautiful family together. Ciara says she loves him so much. Ben says the same as Ciara admits she’s tired now. Ciara asks Ben to hold her so she can fall asleep in his arms.

John hopes he didn’t upset Marlena by bringing up the movie. Marlena says of course not. John explains that he supported Johnny but he needs to understand that this project is never going to happen. Marlena assumes that he talked to him. John confirms that he did and so did Allie, but he thinks Johnny needs to hear it from Marlena. John thought Marlena could talk him out of it but now thinks maybe she won’t have to have that conversation, so everything in the past can stay in the past where it belongs. John declares it will be smooth sailing for them from now on as he holds her.

Victor: We are having a discussion, the kind a father has with his future son-in-law when he’s about to marry his daughter.

Victoria: Well, it’s a little late to be asking him what his intentions are, don’t you think?

Ashland: You’re right. Victor and I are determined to make sure there are no surprises, that this wedding goes off without a hitch, and that we can savor the celebration.

Victoria: Which means there’s something that needs to be dealt with that you’re not telling me.

Victor: Sweetheart, all you have to know is that I have any potential threat to you, to the wedding, or to Ashland under control. I give you my word, alright? So, you two get ready. I’ll see you at the party. Goodbye, sweetheart.

Victoria: You look pale. And my father doesn’t fool me. What is this really about?


Victoria: Well, should I ask Nate to come check on you?

Ashland: No, no, no, no. There’s certainly no need. Ironically enough, Billy was the one who came to my rescue.

Victoria: Billy’s here? I haven’t seen him yet.

Ashland: Yeah, he’s probably laying low.

Victoria: Well [Sighs] Given that he’s been flooding my phone with messages, I assumed that he’d be banging on my door the moment that he arrived. He seems eager to confront me with his news that he thinks i need to know.

Ashland: Well, there’s nothing Billy can tell you that you don’t already know.

Victoria: Well, mom told him not to come, but I’m actually glad that he did because i cannot wait to see how crushed he will be when he sees that he flew all this way for nothing.

Ashland: That’ll be very satisfying for you.

Victoria: I wonder why i haven’t seen him yet. Do you think he’s avoiding me?

Ashland: He’s probably mapping out his grand entrance or something like that. I say we don’t give the guy another thought.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] That sounds good to me.

Gaines: Wow. This place is something else. Maybe I’ll use some of my payoff cash to buy myself a little palazzo like this one.

Billy: We’re not here for a shopping spree, okay? So just slow down. We got a job to do.

Gaines: And I, for one, am ready to do my part. I have been waiting a long time for this — the well-deserved and ultimate downfall of Ashland Locke. So, how do you see it playing out?

Billy: Very carefully.

Gaines: You know, I was hoping for something dramatic, like humiliating him while he’s standing on the altar, waiting for his precious bride.


Jack: It is the beauty of family.

Phyllis: She can’t keep on holding this against him. He was just trying to help her.

Jack: I’m sure he feels justified in his actions. Look, at least now he realizes that it’s time to let go and accept the inevitability of this wedding, unlike some people we know.

Phyllis: Who? Billy?

Jack: Do not ask me to enumerate the number of times i have told Billy to let Victoria live her life.

Phyllis: Okay, I won’t ask you. Ah, I do respect how Nick will go above and beyond for someone he loves. I do respect that. But sometimes talking nice is not the right way to go, and i am afraid that’s what he’s trying to do right now.

Victoria: Well, should I ask nate to come check on you?

Ashland: No, no, no, no. There’s certainly no need. Ironically enough, billy was the one who came to my rescue.

Victoria: Billy’s here? I haven’t seen him yet.

Ashland: Yeah, he’s probably laying low.

Victoria: Well [Sighs] Given that he’s been flooding my phone with messages, I assumed that he’d be banging on my door the moment that he arrived. He seems eager to confront me with his news that he thinks i need to know.

Ashland: Well, there’s nothing billy can tell you that you don’t already know.

Victoria: Well, mom told him not to come, but I’m actually glad that he did because i cannot wait to see how crushed he will be when he sees that he flew all this way for nothing.

Ashland: That’ll be very satisfying for you.

Victoria: I wonder why i haven’t seen him yet. Do you think he’s avoiding me?

Ashland: He’s probably mapping out his grand entrance or something like that. I say we don’t give the guy another thought.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] That sounds good to me.

Ashland: Right. I’m gonna finish getting ready, and then we can head downstairs and welcome all of our family and friends who came to cheer us on.

Victoria: Okay.

Phyllis: Seriously? We’re going to leave? I mean, I got this dress and — and, I mean, we should’ve just gone back home after milan.

Nick: I know, I’m sorry. I didn’t know I’d feel like this until after we arrived.

Phyllis: Alright. Okay, if you want to leave, we’ll leave. If you want to stay and keep on working on victoria, we’ll stay. I’ll do whatever you want. I’ll even keep, you know, the disparaging remarks about victoria to myself.

Nick: I’ve said everything that I can think of to sway her, and nothing’s working. Now, she said she’s not gonna kick me out, but I don’t want to be this dark cloud hanging over her wedding.

Phyllis: Alright, I’ll just do whatever you want. I mean, honestly, I’m only here because of you. We both know I wouldn’t have made the guest list otherwise.

Nick: Then let’s just leave.

Noah: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. What do you mean leave? I just got here, dad.

Noah: I could tell how preoccupied you were at summer and kyle’s ceremony. Something wasn’t right.

Nick: Yeah. I didn’t want anyone to notice that, noah.

Noah: Well, you did a great job covering. Every time there was a quiet moment, I saw that look in your eye. And now, what, you guys are talking about not even staying for victoria’s wedding?

Phyllis: Um, you know, I’m gonna let you guys talk in private. Father-son time. I’ll do whatever you want.

Noah: Come on, man, talk to me. What’s going on?

Nick: I did some checking into ashland’s past behind victoria’s back. She found out about it and she felt betrayed.

Noah: Did you learn something bad?

Nick: It doesn’t matter what I found out. Didn’t affect her decision at all to go through with this wedding.

Noah: He clearly didn’t win you over.

Nick: I just need to accept the fact that my sister’s gonna make her own decisions without my input.

Noah: So tell her that.

Nick: I have tried. Nothing works. She refuses to accept my apologies.

Noah: Wait, so you’re running away because your feelings are hurt?

Nick: I’m not running away from anything, noah, alright? I just don’t want to be somewhere where I’m not wanted.

Noah: Well, that sounds like an excuse to me. Victoria probably just needs some time. If her forgiveness is really that important to you, stick around and fight for it.

Nick: Of course it’s important. I never would’ve looked into ashland’s past if I didn’t care about her.

Noah: Alright, so it might be hard for her to see that. Big deal. You know, if you taught me one thing, it’s not to walk away from a challenge. Figure out a way to overcome and work things out. Given there was also plenty of other meaningless father-son lessons I ignored, this isn’t one of them. And I’ll be really disappointed in my old man if he doesn’t follow through on his own advice.

Victor: Well.

Nikki: How are the bride and groom? Do I need to check on them?

Victor: They’re just fine. They’ll be here shortly.

Nikki: Okay, um…

Victor: Mm-hmm.

Nikki: I saw billy a few minutes ago. He seemed skittish. That’s never a good sign.

Victor: Baby, don’t you worry, okay? I have my eye on billy boy abbott. Trust me, nothing and no one will ruin this celebration. Nothing.

Jack: There seems to be some intrigue afoot.

Nate: Yeah, we picked up on that, too.

Jack: I just hope it has nothing to do with my brother.

Elena: Well, planning such a big event has got to be stressful, and a destination wedding in italy is probably extra difficult.

Nate: I wonder if I should go check on ashland.

Leslie: Ah, and where’s the happy couple?

Victor: My goodness, leslie brooks. How nice to see you. You look beautiful.

Leslie: Oh, after traveling all day, I think not.

Nikki: No, no, my husband is right. You look sensational. We are so thrilled that you will be able to be at victoria’s wedding.

Leslie: Well, I’m delighted that it worked out with my concert schedule.

Jack: Well, believe me, the pleasure is all ours.

Leslie: Jack abbott, how long has it been?

Jack: We have a lot of catching up to do.

Leslie: We do indeed.

Jack: First, though, I’d like you to meet a couple dear friends. Leslie brooks, dr. Nate hastings, dr. Elena dawson.

Victor: Just in case anyone asks if there’s a doctor in the house.

Nikki: Oh.

[ Laughter ]

Leslie: Well, I’m pleased to make your acquaintance.

Elena: It’s so exciting to meet a famous concert pianist.

Jack: Yes, leslie is one of genoa city’s own and the least likely to ever be a celebrity.

Nikki: Ahh, but her playing. When victor and I heard you in milan last spring for my birthday, we were absolutely transported.

Victor: It was a hell of a show, if you don’t mind my saying so.

Leslie: Oh, not at all, victor. I’m flattered.

Nikki: Well, we are just thrilled that you’ll be able to play for victoria and ashland’s ceremony.

Leslie: Well, I’m honored to be included. Your daughter deserves every happiness.

Jack: Well, I will drink to that.

[ Indistinct conversation ]

Jack: Hey, hey. What’s going on? You’re sniffing around here like a bloodhound.

Billy: Just a little confused. I guess lily arrived early and she’s here, and I can’t find her anywhere.

Jack: Oh, come on, the place is big, it’s not that big. And why would lily and the kids be avoiding the one place everyone’s gathering?

Billy: You know, jack, will there ever be a day that you are not suspicious of me?

Jack: I know how you feel about this wedding. I know you have doubts about ashland. It is not that far a reach to think you might be up to something.

Billy: Oh, look at that. Lily just texted me. She is here, and she’s lost, so I guess this place is that big,after all.

Phyllis: Where’s he rushing off to?

Jack: That’s a good question.

Victoria: Hey, listen. Are you sure you’re ready for this? I mean, maybe we’ve planned too many events. We’ve got this cocktail party, the big family ceremony, and then the reception afterwards.

Ashland: I am more than ready. I can’t wait to welcome our guests to witness the happiest event of my life. Are you ready?

Victoria: I’m ready.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: Here they are, everyone, the bride and the groom.

[ Applause ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Victoria: I am so elated to have you here.

Leslie: Oh, well, I remember you as a young girl at nikki and victor’s first wedding. What a wonderful moment this is.

Victor: We have come full circle.

Victoria: Yes, we have. Um, leslie, may I present my fiancé, ashland locke.

Ashland: Enchanted.

Leslie: Oh. I am pleased to meet the man who’s put that radiant smile on victoria’s face.

Ashland: I believe I have every one of your tchaikovsky recordings going back to the ’80s. Each one more exquisite than the next.

Leslie: Oh, well, I don’t think I can even say that.

[ Laughter ]

Ashland: I know this may be a bit of a busman’s holiday, but could I impose on you to play one of my favorite pieces, “sonata rom*ntica in g major”?

Nikki: I love that one.

Leslie: Oh, well, it will be my pleasure to oblige as a gift to the happy couple.

Nikki: Oh.

Leslie: Yes, and I’m looking forward to accompanying tessa porter on your wedding song.

[ Chuckles ] And I hope you don’t mind if i let loose and play a little jazz on that exquisite piano.

Victor: By all means.

Leslie: As the evening progress.

Nikki: It’ll take me right back the allegro days.

Leslie: Oh, then it’s a deal. Aww. Okay.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: Shall we?

Leslie: Shall we?

Nikki: I’m going to sit here and listen.

Leslie: Yes.

Phyllis: Love the way she’s tickling the ivories. Alright. I’ll just shut up and enjoy the setting and the ambiance and the company.

Elena: A private performance from a world-renowned pianist. I hate to add more pressure. That speech of yours has a lot to live up to.

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: Seems like everyone’s showing up big time for victoria and ashland.

Nate: Yeah, the bar just keeps getting higher. Luckily, I thrive on competition. And I’m starting to get inspired. Look how happy they are.

Elena: Yeah. Victor and nikki seem really happy, too.

Billy: Damn it, where are you?

Lily: I’m right here.

Billy: Hi.

Lily: Hi.

Billy: I’m sorry. I didn’t even know you arrived. You didn’t text me.

Lily: Yeah. That’s okay. Sorry, I was busy juggling the kids and luggage with minimal italian. And the staff told me they would alert you.

Billy: Yeah, well, no one told me.

Lily: Okay. Well, that’s fine. Kids are napping. They’re very cranky after the flight. And I was gonna get changed and meet you at the party.

Billy: Okay.

Lily: You seem less than excited to see me, which is very annoying given how much traveling I’ve just done.

Billy: I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I am thrilled to see you. I am, and thankful that you brought the kids with you all that way. They are going to love it here. It is actually spectacular. And I’ve missed you.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay. I missed you, too.

Billy: How’s mattie?

Lily: She’s good. She’s better. I mean, even though she’s brilliant, she’s having a hard time finding people on her wavelength, but it’s alright. I wish you were there.

Billy: Yeah, me too.

Lily: Whoa, whoa, wait a second, actually. Um…if you didn’t know I was here, who were you expecting to find when you came bursting into the room?

Billy: What do you mean?

Lily: Okay, you’re all flustered. What have you done now? Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Billy: What have I done? You automatically jump to accusations.

Lily: I know how you get when one of your plans have gone awry.

Billy: Well, maybe I’m just out of sorts because I missed you and the kids so much.

Lily: No, you said that you had to fly here early to tell victoria some important information, so what was it?

Billy: I found persuasive evidence that ashland locke committed fraud. He changed camilla rhodes’ will and made himself the beneficiary.

Lily: Wow, that’s huge.

Billy: I know.

Lily: So how — how did you find this evidence?

Billy: Well, the evidence is a person. Jesse gaines.

Lily: Wait, you found him? How did you get him to tell you?

Billy: I paid him off.

Lily: How much?

Billy: A hefty sum.

Lily: How hefty?

Billy: A duffel bag full of cash.

Lily: [ Scoffs ] Ah, okay, go one.

Billy: Look, it was enough to get him to flip on ashland and tell me everything he knows about his criminal past.

Lily: And how long were you gonna keep me in the dark about this?

Billy: I couldn’t sit on it, lily. You were in california taking care of mattie, and obviously the wedding was fast approaching.

Lily: Yeah, no, I — I mean, I’ll admit, this is information that victoria needs to hear. What did she say when you showed her the evidence?

Billy: I haven’t told her yet.

Lily: Why not?

Billy: Because I lost the evidence.

Nick: I mean, I see your point. I’m still not convinced that staying’s a good option.

Noah: Alright, look. Have a drink. Get your head in the game, alright? I’m gonna go say hi to victoria. Excuse me, do you know where i can find the bride?

Victoria: Oh, my gosh, noah! Come here, give me a hug. It’s so good to see you.

Noah: It’s good to see you, too.

Victoria: I’m so glad that you were able to make the trip.

Noah: Are you kidding me? I wouldn’t miss it. You must be ashland. I’m noah newman. I’m nick and sharon’s son.

Ashland: I know exactly who you are, and it’s a pleasure to finally meet you.

Noah: Same here. You’re a lucky guy to win my aunt’s heart.

Ashland: Don’t I know it?

Noah: Excellent choice in best man, by the way. Nate, he’s — he’s done a lot for the family over the years.

Victoria: Yes, he’s been a rock for ashland, too, as he’s undergone his treatments.

Noah: Right. I hope that’s all working out. It’s your guys’ wedding celebration, so if you don’t want to talk about it right now…

Ashland: No, no, no, it’s part of our life together. In fact, it’s in our vows — “till death do us part.”

[ Laughs ]

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] My soon-to-be husband has a very warped sense of humor sometimes.

Noah: Sounds like we’ll get along just fine.

Ashland: From everything your aunt tells me, I believe you’re right.

Noah: I hope we find the time to get to know each other better. If not this trip, next time I’m home for a visit.

Ashland: Well, you never mentioned how charming your nephew was.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Victoria: I have to wonder where he gets that from.

Noah: Hey, don’t get mad, but I had to convince my dad to stick around.

Summer: Buona sera, everyone!

Nikki: Oh!

[ Applause ]

Summer: Hi! [ Chuckles ]

Lily: Wait, you lost the evidence? How?

Billy: Gaines is the evidence. I need him to tell victoria because she’s not gonna believe it coming from me.

Lily: Wait a second, are you saying that you brought gaines here to tuscany? Billy, what were you thinking?

Billy: My plan was to introduce gaines to victoria discreetly, and he could tell her everything he knows about ashland and then she can make whatever choice she wants, but now gaines is missing.

Phyllis: Oh!

Summer: Hi. Hi. Where’s dad? Hi.

Victoria: Oh, look at you!

Summer: [ Chuckles ]

Ashland: Good to see you.

Victoria: Congratulations. You’re glowing.

Kyle: Oh, well, thank you.

Victoria: I wish I could’ve been there.

Summer: No, no, I get it. You were busy tying things up at work so you could take some actual time off, and I was just crazed with all the details on my end until the last second, so we just had a tiny little ceremony.

Victoria: Well, it doesn’t really matter what size it is, planning a wedding is a lot more work than you would think.

Summer: Right?

Victoria: Yes.

Summer: Well, I am just so happy that we can all be here to celebrate with you, and I am very much looking forward to being a guest and not the center of attention.

Kyle: And she’s not just talking about being a bride. Summer gets recognized on the street all the time now. We can’t go into a café in the fashion district without people checking out what she’s wearing.

Summer: No, I do not leave the house unless every hair is in place now.

[ Chuckles ]

Nick: I always knew my supergirl was gonna be a star.

Victoria: Well, it sounds very glamorous.

Ashland: Victoria and I are so thrilled that you guys are here. And most importantly, that you are taking such good care of harrison. Where is he, by the way?

Harrison: Father!

Ashland: Oh, buddy, look at you! Oh, my goodness! It’s so good to see you.

[ Laughs ] Mm. Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Summer: I’m his only friend.

Kyle: [ Laughs ]

Summer: No, it was just us.

Kyle: No, yeah. My father…

Summer: No.

Kyle: It was just us. What do you mean? What do you mean?

Summer: Just us.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Jack: Well, looks like maybe nick and victoria have called a truce, at least.

Phyllis: Really? Wow. Nick was ready to leave earlier.

Jack: Wait, really?

Phyllis: Yeah, I mean, maybe noah convinced him to stay. He talked to him. Nick didn’t want to make the wedding uncomfortable, so… but I don’t know, maybe he changed his mind.

Jack: Well, I hope noah got through to him. I’d hate for you to have to leave already.

Nate: That was sublime, leslie, really.

Leslie: Oh, why, thank you. Thank you so much.

Elena: So I have to ask, does it ever get old, people asking you to perform when you visit?

Leslie: Oh, well, it comes with the profession. I mean, you’re doctors, so you know. I’m sure people are always asking you about their ailments, and would you refuse to give them medical expertise?

Nate: [ Chuckles ]

Elena: That is a really good point.

Leslie: Well, I believe when you have a gift, it’s your duty to share it. I mean, besides, I love to perform and I’d do anything for victor and nikki’s family. Victoria seems so happy, and your ashland’s best man, so you must know him pretty well. What do you think of him?

Nate: [ Chuckles ] Believe it or not, we didn’t meet that long ago, so I don’t know much about his past, but I’m impressed with the man I’ve gotten to know.

Leslie: Well, from what i understand, victoria and ashland are devoted to starting fresh, writing a new chapter for the rest of their lives. I’m all for that. Why look back?

Nate: I agree. What really matters is where they go from here.

Nikki: It’s so nice having noah here.

Nick: It is, isn’t it?

Nikki: He’s grown into such a talented, confident young man. He reminds me a lot of you.

Nick: It’s funny you say that. He offered me some of the same wisdom I gave him when he was growing up, you know, after i tried and failed to work things out with victoria.

Nikki: Failed? What are you talking about? You didn’t fail. You’re still here. I assumed that meant you’d worked things out.

Nick: She relented and said i could stay, but I’m not sure it’s the best idea.

Nikki: Don’t you dare tell me you’re thinking about leaving.

Nick: Let’s just see how it plays out, okay? I said my piece, I did my best to convince her that everything I did was for sake. I can’t force her to be okay with it.

Nikki: Try to be patient with your sister. That’s my sage advice.

Phyllis: I don’t know, I’m not sure about anything. But now I want to stay, if for no other reason but to spend time with my daughter now. That wedding was gorgeous. She was gorgeous. That was a beautiful, intimate affair, unlike this newman event that’s filled with fireworks and…

Jack: I thought you liked a little drama.

Phyllis: I do like drama, but not like this. It’s like I can never say the right thing to nick about his sister, ever. I’m an outsider in that family, you know that.

[ Sighs ] The way they treat each other, it’s horrific.

Jack: Listen to me. You are not an outsider, certainly not with nick.

Phyllis: Okay, you don’t have to do that, you know that, right? What can I du with less asthma?

Jack: I’m merely being supportive of nick, that’s all.

Phyllis: I know, I know. You’re so supportive of nick and so supportive of us as a couple.

Jack: And that’s a bad thing because?

Phyllis: Because stop trying to overcompensate because of what you said before. I know you’re not trying to get in between us. I know that. You have nothing to prove.

Jack: Okay, I never intended to do that. Maybe you’re right. Maybe subconsciously, I was doing that. I only want what’s best for you.

Phyllis: Ohhh, that’s exhausting.

Jack: My having your back is exhausting?

Phyllis: Yes. Stop trying to humor me. Stop trying to be so careful, you know? It’s annoying. I know, I can be annoying. That’s okay. Let’s just go back to normal.

Jack: Whatever you say.

Summer: So I saw you talking to dad. What is with the mood he’s been in? ‘Cause he seemed really weird in milan, and it seems like he still is.

Noah: He and victoria aren’t in the best place right now.

Summer: Why? What’s going on between the two of them?

Noah: Dad looked into some things she didn’t want looked into, and now she’s totally put out by him.

Summer: You know, I am so surprised that they can still fight at this stage. You know, they have to know that they’re gonna make up eventually, so why put all the energy into it?

Noah: Come on, do you think people ever really grow out of sibling rivalry?

Summer: Um, I think we did.

Noah: Yeah, I’d give us a little bit more time, but…

[ Both laugh ]

Summer: Okay.

Noah: I don’t love being away from the family, but I really don’t miss the constant drama.

Summer: Yeah, I get it. I mean, I miss everyone from back home so much, but milan is amazing and it’s chaos-free and it is a really nice change of pace.

Noah: I can tell europe agrees with you.

Summer: Well, once I got to be with kyle again, it made all the difference.

Noah: Yeah, you married old lady.

Summer: Oh, no. Two weddings in a row. They’re gonna expect you to be next.

Noah: You know, it wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. The settling down part, that is.

Summer: Really? Okay, because I thought that you loved being the hip artist living in london, dating all the international goddesses. What?

Noah: Come on, we both know what it’s like to have parents who can never be content with one relationship for too long. Kind of makes you feel like you can’t trust anything will last.

Summer: Yeah. Yeah, I suppose so.

Noah: Yeah, I think that’s why you realized you wanted to be with kyle for the rest of your life. The whole roller coaster thing, it starts to get old.

Summer: [ Chuckles ] Yeah, I mean, kyle and I have been through a lot of turmoil — mostly my fault, ’cause of my indecision. But, yeah, we were on and off again for such a long time until we just figured out that that’s not what we want and we wanted to be together forever.

Noah: I really admire that. Hope to have it for myself someday.

Summer: Hey, you should come for a long visit. No, seriously, I have met so many amazing women that I can introduce you to. They’re entrepreneurs, designers. I — seriously.

[ Gasps ] Oh, and then you can move to milan and we can hang out all the time!

Noah: Yeah, I have been considering a change of scenery.

Lily: You actually brought gaines here to italy? Like, what were you hoping to accomplish, some sort of theatrical newsworthy exposure of ashland right before his wedding?

Billy: No, I didn’t want this to be some big showdown, okay? And I don’t even plan on publishing the information. I simply want victoria that she’s about to marry a liar and a fraud.

Lily: Right.

Billy: She can make her own choice after that, okay? But right now…

Lily: Okay, well, you have a problem. You lost control of the narrative along with the narrator. So are you telling me that gaines is lurking around the palazzo somewhere?

Billy: I’m assuming he is. I mean, it’s a big house. I searched the property. I searched everywhere. I don’t know where he is.

Lily: Who knows, maybe he went to go explore?

Billy: I don’t think so. I thought maybe victor had something to do with it, like his security team found him, but —

Lily: No, if that were the case, victor would’ve tossed you out, too.

Billy: Yeah. Look, gaines has an axe to grind. He despises ashland. My concern right now is that he has his own plan.

Jack: Hey, look, I don’t know if I said this enough in milan, but I couldn’t be happier for how you and summer have found your way back to each other. Here you are, starting a whole new life together.

Kyle: Thank you for making this move to italy work for us. I mean, that’s not just about jabot. I know you miss your new grandson, as well.

Jack: Yeah, I miss harrison and I miss you, but I’m incredibly proud of how you and summer have stepped up for that little boy.

Kyle: Summer and I love having harrison with us. It’s been fantastic.

Jack: I’m also proud of the way you have honored the bond between harrison and the man who raised him.

Kyle: Yeah, well, after everything blew up with tara and ashland getting sick, I wasn’t sure how harrison would do. I know he misses both of them, but every morning, that kid wakes up so joyful and serene, it’s just this miracle. Harrison’s happiness always comes first. Ashland’s someone who he feels safe with and who he loves. To be able to give my boy some time with him means a lot to me.

Jack: To see the man you’ve become, the father you’ve become, makes me smile. You know what really touches my heart? That you always put your son’s happiness first.

Kyle: I learned that from you, dad. Can’t thank you enough.

[ Taps on glass ]

Victor: May I have your attention, please? I want to welcome all of you. I want to thank you for coming from far and wide to be at this momentous occasion, the wedding of my beautiful victoria to ashland locke, a man I’ve come to know and respect. As you know, ashland came to genoa city for business, and he stayed for love. Ashland and I have known each other in the world of business for a while. Knew him to be tough and ruthless, almost as ruthless as I am.

[ Laughter ] But I’m not worried about victoria. She’s a worthy adversary. As a matter of fact, in her wheeling and dealing with ashland, she discovered that he was a good match for her. They combined efforts and their business brilliance and they merged two very powerful companies and created what is really an empire. An empire I hope will continue honoring the legacy of both newman and locke. Now, not only did they merge in the boardroom, but — and this is most important to me — I saw them be very loving with each other. It means a hell of a lot to me. You know that as her father, I’ll always worry, so as her mother. For that matter, one always worries about who one’s child falls in love with. And as a father, I can tell you that one never thinks that any man is good enough for one’s daughter. But you’re a good man, ashland. I’ve learned to respect you. So, without further ado, my beautiful wife, nikki, and I — as you know, we really cherish family — want to welcome you, ashland, into our family. And all of you will vow to support this union. So, in the words often spoken in this beautiful country, let us toast to the couple and to our family.

A la famiglia.

All: A la famiglia.

[ Glasses clinking ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Ashland: That was one heck of a speech, victor. It meant a lot. Thank you very much.

Victor: Ashland, I meant every word of it, okay? Now, let’s make sure that billy boy doesn’t ruin things, okay?

Ashland: I’m gonna go look for him now and make sure he doesn’t do any more damage.

Victor: Careful.

Gaines: Ashland. Many happy returns of the day.

Elena: Whatever you have planned for your speech, I think you’re gonna have to start from scratch. Victor pretty much covered all of the material I could imagine you saying.

Nate: Actually, he didn’T. It just so happens, when we were chatting with leslie earlier, something she said inspired me to come up with my own perfect angle.

Elena: Oh, really? That sounds great. Let’s hear it.

Nate: [ Chuckles ] I’m not a traditional best man. Ashland and I are from different generations. I don’t know him from the business world. We’re not former fraternity brothers or guys who grew up in the same town together. Ashland’s a new friend. Someone I’ve come to know under extraordinary circumstances, which speaks to the kind of man he is. His character and fortitude in the face of adversity. Who’s marrying victoria, someone I do know and want the best for.

Elena: I loved it. It wasn’t stilted at all or clichéd or trite. It was heartfelt and honest, just like the man giving the speech.

Nate: Whew! That’s what I was going for.

Elena: Well, mission accomplished. Now I guess we can focus on the romance of italy, this amazing wedding.

Nate: And my amazing date.

Ashland: What the hell are you up to, gaines, and what are you and billy abbott planning?

Gaines: Oh, and spoil the surprise? No, I’d rather see you sweating for a bit.

Ashland: You smug bastard.

Gaines: That was quite a tribute the old man just gave, wasn’t it? Maybe I should walk into that fancy party and reveal to everyone how you built your empire on deceit and criminal behavior. Or maybe I’ll wait and announce it tomorrow right before the ceremony. Or maybe I’ll make you so nervous that you’ll feel like you have no other choice but to call off the wedding. Wouldn’t that be devastating for everyone?

Victoria: Ashland, you out here?

Gaines: Enjoy the rest of your evening, lovebirds.

Victoria: That was jesse gaines, wasn’t it?

Ashland: I’m gonna call security and let them handle this.

Victoria: No, don’T. I know exactly how to handle this.

Lily: If gaines is working his own angle, what do you think he’s gonna do?

Billy: I don’t know. I mean, he was very disappointed that I didn’t plan on interrupting the wedding.

Lily: Okay, you cannot let him wreck the ceremony.

Billy: I know. I know. Victoria will never, never forgive me.

[ Door opens ]

Victoria: What the hell do you think you’re doing?

[ Knock on door ]

Jack: Hey!

Phyllis: Hey! Hi. Isn’t this gorgeous?

Jack: I could not agree more. Milan was wonderful in its own way, you know, the shops, the fashions, the restaurants, the art and culture. But, wow, everywhere you look in this place, it is gorgeous. The newmans have outdone themselves.

Phyllis: Yeah. Well, the palazzo’s beautiful.

Jack: So, I came to drop off this bag you left in the jet. My pilot had it messengered over.

Phyllis: Ahh. I thought I lost this. Great. Ah! I’m wearing it to the cocktail party.

Jack: I somehow doubt you were lacking in wardrobe choices.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] I have about a dozen dresses that I brought.

Jack: [ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: But I got this one special. I’m supporting my daughter’s flourishing career.

Jack: Of course you are. And you’ll look absolutely stunning in it. I have no doubt. So, where’s nick?

Phyllis: Uh, he’s taking the bull by the horns right now. I mean, we’re here against victoria’s explicit directions not to come. Let’s hope, uh — let’s hope it’s worth it.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Victor: Hey, my boy.

Nick: This place looks great.

Victor: Doesn’t it?

Nick: Hey, mom.

Nikki: Nicholas, oh, you’re here! I’m so glad.

Nick: Hey, dad.

Nikki: Does that mean that victoria changed her mind about having you at the wedding?

Nick: Uh, afraid not. But I’m not gonna give up. I wanted to talk to you two first to see if you could give me a read on vick before i approach her myself.

Victor: Hmm.

Nick: You think there’s any chance I can repair things before she says “I do”?

Nate: [ Sighs heavily ]

Elena: Huh. So, this is what you’re up to. We have this whole palatial estate to explore, and yet you’re here staring at your tablet screen.

Nate: I want to spend time with you. Really, I do.

Elena: But?

Nate: I’m having trouble coming up with my best man toast.

Elena: Ah.

Nate: I am no speechwriter. I don’t want it to sound stilted. It needs to be smooth, warm, and brilliant, you know? Something worthy of the power couple.

Elena: I can completely understand why you’re having a difficult time. You haven’t known ashland for very long. So you don’t have any old embarrassing stories or funny anecdotes to share.

Nate: Yeah, you’re not making this any easier.

Elena: That just means I will have to find a way to help. Come with me.

Nate: Where?

Elena: To find some romantic inspiration.

Victoria: Some of our guests have already checked in, and the rest are gonna be arriving right on time. So it looks like everything is set.

Ashland: Is it, though?

Victoria: Well, I don’t have anything left on my to-do list.

Ashland: Oh, that’s not what I meant. I have no doubt that all the arrangements will be in order. I’m more concerned about your heart. Now that you have time to let everything I’ve told you sink in, are you really, truly all-in for the wedding tomorrow? I just don’t want you to go through with the marriage if your main motivation is for some precaution to save our company.

Gaines: Wow. This place is something else. Maybe I’ll use some of my payoff cash to buy myself a little palazzo like this one.

Billy: We’re not here for a shopping spree, okay? So just slow down. We got a job to do.

Gaines: And I, for one, am ready to do my part. I have been waiting a long time for this — the well-deserved and ultimate downfall of ashland locke. So, how do you see it playing out?

Billy: Very carefully.

Gaines: You know, I was hoping for something dramatic, like humiliating him while he’s standing on the altar, waiting for his precious bride. Hi. So you’re the scientist here.

Billy: I understand you’re starting to taste your revenge against ashland, but we are not looking for pyrotechnics here.

Gaines: What’s wrong with a little fireworks? Couldn’t happen to a nicer guy. The more painful and embarrassing the reveal, the better.

Billy: Jesse, I’m gonna be very clear. I am here to protect victoria. I do not want to cause her any more pain than what is necessary. I simply want to give her the irrefutable proof that she is about to marry a liar and a criminal.

Gaines: So, what’s your plan?

Billy: Hopefully I can convince victoria to speak with me alone. I’ll bring her back the suite, and you can fill her in with all the details. I want to give her a little bit of space and some privacy with no distractions or interruptions so she can come to her own conclusion, which I’m hoping is calling the whole thing off.

Gaines: Well, as long as the outcome is the same — locke humiliated on his big wedding day.

Billy: I’m gonna go find victoria. You wait here. Sit tight. Don’t go exploring. Don’t go showing your face. If anybody sees you, it could blow the whole thing up.

[ Door closes ]

Victoria: Trust me, ashland. One way or another, newman/locke will be safe.

Ashland: Uh-oh. I know that look. Now, what does my beautiful bride have up her sleeve? ‘Cause it sounds like you have some kind of a plan to protect the company.

Victoria: All I want to focus on right now is the love that we have for each other and our wedding. And I think everything else can wait.

Ashland: It means so much to me that you are still standing by me despite everything you now know.

Victoria: You know, I keep thinking about your childhood, picturing that anxious teen boy having to make those life-changing decisions all on his own, running away from an abusive home, leaving everything and everyone behind, and then losing the one friend that you had in the whole world in a car accident.

Ashland: Mm.

Victoria: Worst of all, you felt like your mentor, the women who meant more to you than your own mother — you felt like she betrayed you on her deathbed. The story — it just haunts me. It really does. So I can see how, even when you became the formidable ashland locke, that it followed you around everywhere.

Ashland: Yeah. That’s exactly how it felt. Hovering over me all the time like a dark cloud. And you do understand.

Victoria: Yes, I do. And I have come to terms with why you didn’t tell me. I — I know that you didn’t want to taint the beautiful relationship that we were building.

[ Sighs ] But now that it has, I just want you to know something. It’s okay. We’re okay. And you’re gonna have to trust me now. And by this time tomorrow, you and I are gonna be husband and wife. And nothing is gonna stop that now. Nothing is gonna stop that now.

Jack: You don’t have to worry about nick. He knows how to handle victoria. I’m just hopeful that she changes her mind and asks him to stay for the ceremony. She knows it wouldn’t be the same without her brother there.

Phyllis: You know, they’ve had so many arguments. So many. But this has gotten really out of control.

Jack: She’s loyal to the man she loves, just the same way he defended you to her over the years.

Phyllis: Well, that’s for sure. When she went after the grand phoenix, he saved my hotel. I will support him.

Jack: Okay, I just want you to know — you are the last person to convince victoria to change her mind.

Phyllis: Oh, I know that. How about you? She’s already respected you.

Jack: I am not getting in the middle of this. They are gonna have to work this all out themselves.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] I wish she would just listen to him. It’s so crazy that she’s not doing that. Honestly.

[ Sighs ] You know what? They’ll work this out. They always do.

Jack: It is the beauty of family.

Phyllis: She can’t keep on holding this against him. He was just trying to help her.

Jack: I’m sure he feels justified in his actions. Look, at least now he realizes that it’s time to let go and accept the inevitability of this wedding, unlike some people we know.

Phyllis: Who? Billy?

Jack: Do not ask me to enumerate the number of times i have told billy to let victoria live her life.

Phyllis: Okay, I won’t ask you. Ah, I do respect how nick will go above and beyond for someone he loves. I do respect that. But sometimes talking nice is not the right way to go, and i am afraid that’s what he’s trying to do right now.

Nikki: Darling, you know how much we want to see you and victoria work things out. We’re just not sure how receptive she will be to your surprise appearance.

Nick: I can’t stay away, alright? It’s vick’s wedding day and i want to be here and I need to make my case to her in person.

Nikki: And I agree with you. It’s just that she’s dealing with so much prenuptial stress as it is.

Victor: Son, a lot of this was brought on by you digging into ashland’s past.

Nick: Right. Do I need to remind you that we were both investigating locke?

Victor: No, you don’T. The difference is I didn’t go to new jersey to dig up old skeletons.

Nick: I will accept responsibility for what I’ve done. I was trying to get the truth, but the only thing I want to do now is make things easier on my sister. Vick and I have been in lots of fights over the years. We always find a way to make it work. Are you telling me that we can’t do it this time?

Victor: All I’m telling you, son, is that I don’t want anyone to cause any problems on victoria’s happy day, alright?

Nick: Are you saying I’m a problem?

Nikki: Alright, now, this is victoria’s moment. The last thing she needs is to have the two of you arguing.

Nikki: Hold on a second. Are you two telling me you’re both on board with this wedding?

Victor: Yeah.

Nick: Mom, you’re willing to stand there next to victoria as dad is handing victoria away to this guy who’s been lying his entire life? Who got everything he has because he exploited a death? Really?

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: So, the trip to the little winery down the road was a great idea. But unfortunately, it didn’t clear my writer’s block.

Elena: What?! How can you not be inspired by that old couple who own the winery? Their story was so romantic.

Nate: It was, but I’m not sure how that relates to victoria and ashland. Look, our new vineyard friends met in elementary school, and they’ve been inseparable ever since, which is pretty much the opposite of the bride and groom’s story.

Elena: Okay, but maybe that’s your angle. Sometimes your first love isn’t always the love of your life.

Nate: Okay, but referencing people’s exes during a wedding toast — probably not the best idea.

Elena: Good point. Okay, so, what do we know about ashland and victoria? They met during work. That’s something the both of us know know a little bit about.

Nate: Sharing professional interests can bring two people together.

Elena: Yes. That means that they have the same passions and values.

Nate: Mm. Working long hours together, saving lives. Oh, wait. That’s us.

[ Both laugh ] Um…structuring deals, making massive financial transactions?

[ Chuckles ] Whatever it is victoria and ashland do with their day.

Elena: Your guess is as good as mine. I was always a lot more excited about the O.R. Than executive suites.

Nate: Maybe I need to do a little research.

Elena: Well, in the meantime, we have this fine italian wine, and this will get our creative juices flowing.

Nate: Mm.

Billy: Hey, you two.

Elena: Hey.

Nate: Hope you got an extra glass for me.

Nate: Billy. You made it.

Billy: I did, yeah. We had a smooth flight. How was yours? How was, uh, ashland’s private jet?

Nate: Ah, it couldn’t have been better.

[ Chuckles ]

Elena: So, billy, I hope your arrival here means that you’ve come to terms with the fact that this wedding is going to happen?

Nate: Yeah, there’s no way victoria’s backing out now.

Billy: Yeah, well, we’ll see. I, uh — I assume everything’s gonna go exactly how it’s supposed to. Now, if you don’t mind, I’m actually looking for victoria. Excuse me.

Nate: I get the feeling he’s not letting this go.

Elena: Yeah, and he’s fighting a losing battle.

[ Door opens ]

Ashland: [ Coughs ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

Victoria: Are you okay?

Ashland: Oh, I’m fine. It’s just a little cough.

[ Coughs ]

Victoria: Have you been taking your medication?

Ashland: Yes. I’m okay. Really.

Victoria: I really hope that the stress of the last two days hasn’t exacerbated your condition.

Ashland: I promise I won’t let anything slow me down or get in the way of reciting my vows to you.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Do you know what you’re gonna say? I mean, unless you want me to tell the minister that we’ve changed our minds about writing our own vows.

Ashland: Mine are written on my heart, and they have been for a long time. What about you?

Victoria: I wrote mine down on paper a little while back.

Ashland: Really? Can I get a preview?

Victoria: No, you may not. It’s gonna be a surprise.

Ashland: Well, then I will enjoy the anticipation.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Well, I think I’m ready.

Ashland: You certainly are. You know, I’m not sure if I’m ready to let you out of my sight.

Victoria: You won’t have to for very long if you hurry up and get dressed. Besides, losing a few moments doesn’t really matter. We’re gonna have so many moments together in the future. So hurry up and get dressed and meet me downstairs. I’m gonna check in on my parents and see if the rest of our friends and family have arrived.

Ashland: [ Exhales heavily ]

[ Coughs ]

[ Sighs ]

Jack: Hey. Don’t worry about nick. What’s the worst that could happen?

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] The worst that could happen is victoria’s security throws us out on our butts and it would be really awkward.

Jack: Yeah, that would be bad.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Jack: Yeah, well, just don’t be pessimistic. Put on your pretty dress, get ready for the cocktail party, and let’s hope everyone gets along.

Phyllis: Yeah.

[ Cellphones chirp ] Ohh! I don’t want bad news.

Jack: It’s not bad news. Take a look.

Phyllis: Ooh! The wedding pictures from summer and kyle’s wedding. She is stunning. They look so happy. Wow. You know, somebody may call me biased, but, uh, ashland and victoria’s splashy affair doesn’t hold a candle to this beautiful, intimate ceremony, even with this whole palazzo backdrop.

Jack: I’m sure both weddings will be perfect… in their own way.

[ Door closes ]

Nick: I’m sorry, but I don’t get it. I don’t know how you two can be supportive of this wedding. And, dad, it wasn’t that long ago that you yourself were looking into ashland’s past. I thought we were on the same page about this. What changed?

Victor: What changed, son, is that ashland confessed, okay? He came clean about his identity.

Nick: He only did that because I confronted him with the truth. He told us half the story, and he left out the part where he left his best friend in the world to die in a burning car. Who the hell does something like that?

Nikki: At that point, he thought his friend was already gone, beyond help.

Nick: I — I don’t know how you can make excuses for him.

Victor: Son, let’s put an end to this. I’m very appreciative of the fact that you are concerned about your sister’s well-being. But kindly let this go now, alright? Accept her decision. That’s it.

[ Footsteps approaching ] People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes

Nikki: Nicholas came here because he wants to make peace. You should hear him out, darling.

Victor: That alright with you, my sweetheart?

Victoria: It’s fine. There’s nothing that nicholas can say or do that’s going to upset me more than I already am.

Victor: You two work it out, okay?

Victoria: Okay, nicholas. I hope that you’re not going to try to tell me that I need to stop this wedding again because that’s definitely not going to happen.

Victor: [ Sighs heavily ] I’m afraid nicholas won’t let this go. The last thing I want him to do is to ruin this special day for our daughter.

Nikki: I understand why you’re worried, but I believe that nicholas will put his sister’s happiness first.

Victor: I only hope you’re right.

Nikki: Believe me. I was very upset when I heard that she had disinvited him, but I have to respect that. My biggest concern right now is that nicholas doesn’t yet know of ashland’s latest surprise.

Victor: Sweetheart, the fewer people know about this, the better, okay?

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, this last confession of his was atrocious. Forging your mentor’s will? If nicholas learns about that before the ceremony, it will only add fuel to his fire.

Victor: Sweetheart, the most important thing is that victoria has made peace with ashland. She’s okay with it, alright? That’s what’s important. The other secret needs to stay buried, and I will see to it that it does.

Nick: I promise you I’m not here to try to and stop your wedding.

Victoria: Right. You call it showing your concern, but your goal is the same.

Nick: Look, I get where you’re coming from, and I hate it that this has come between us. It was never my intention to betray you.

Victoria: But that’s exactly what you did.

Nick: Vick, I swear to you, i was hoping that I wouldn’t find anything shady about ashland.

Victoria: But you did. And then you just couldn’t let it go.

Nick: Because I’m worried about you. But I’ve had a lot of time to think about it, okay? And I guess I can understand… why ashland would work so hard to keep, you know, a painful memory a secret.

Victoria: But you still judge him for what he did.

Nick: Look, if me telling you the truth doesn’t make you change your mind about marrying this guy, I’m not gonna try and convince you otherwise. I have to respect your decision. Now, I’m not gonna tell you that I like it or that I’m ever gonna be able to trust this guy.

Victoria: Oh, that’s — that’s really very funny since you have completely destroyed my trust in you. You showed no regard for my feelings or for my wishes. How am I ever supposed to confide in you again?

Nick: All I can say is that i truly believed I was acting in your best interest. I don’t want to break this trust that we have. But I need you to know, vick, that I would never do anything to hurt you on purpose.

Victoria: Your apology doesn’t even begin to make up for what you did.

Nick: So, you’re saying you can’t even forgive me a little bit? It’s your wedding day. Now I’d really like to be here for my sister.

Ashland: [ Coughing ]

[ Gasping ]

[ Coughing ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Coughs ]

Billy: Looks like you could use some help.

Ashland: [ Coughs ]

Billy: What can I do?

Ashland: [ Breathing heavily ] Need long-lasting freshness?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Nick: Vick, I won’t say another word about ashland, alright? If you’re willing to put his past behind you, I’ll do the same.

Victoria: I appreciate the effort that you’re making, but i can tell that you’re still holding back about how you really feel about my fiancé. And that is the last thing that I need the day before my wedding. That being said, while I don’t forgive you, I won’t tell you to go, either.

Nick: What does that even mean?

Victoria: Our parents want us to be happy. They want this to be a celebration of family harmony. So, if you want to stick around for the reception and the wedding, that’s your choice.

Nick: So, you’ll let me stay for their sake?

Victoria: Dad gave me this palazzo as a wedding gift, and i am gonna make this a happy event for him. And you know how mom gets when we’re not getting along.

Nick: It’s your wedding. Your opinion is the only one that matters to me. Do you want me at this ceremony or not?

Victoria: Look, my focus is gonna be completely on ashland. If you happen to be in the crowd, I doubt I’ll even notice it.

Nick: [ Scoffs ] It’s not even an invitation, is it?

Victoria: I told you, you were welcome to come. What more do you expect from me?

Nick: I want to know where things stand with us.

Victoria: I’m not gonna talk with you about where we stand anymore. You hurt me, nicholas. It’s not my job to absolve you or to make you feel better. My only focus now is on ashland and my wedding.

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Billy: I know nate is on the premises. Maybe I should give him a call.

Ashland: That won’t be necessary. I’m fine.

Billy: You don’t look fine, ashland.

Ashland: I could use a glass of water.

[ Coughs ]

[ Breathing deeply ]

Billy: I still think calling nate would be a good idea.

Ashland: [ Coughs ] Thank you. You know, I’m surprised that you had the nerve to show your face. I heard that nikki urged you to, uh, gracefully bow out.

Billy: I think we both knew that that wasn’t gonna happen. I wasn’t gonna miss the most spectacular event of the year.

Ashland: You know, just in case you have any plans to disrupt the wedding, there’s something you should know.

Billy: Okay. Go ahead.

Victor: What the hell are you doing here?

Nikki: So, how did it go with nicholas? Were you two able to resolve your issues?

Victoria: Well, I didn’t kick him out, but I’m not exactly thrilled that he’s here, either.

Nikki: Well, I am. You made the right decision letting him stay.

Victoria: Jack!

Nikki: Oh, you made it!

Victoria: Welcome!

Jack: What a spectacular palazzo, an ideal location for a wedding.

Victoria: Well, I also heard that summer and kyle’s wedding was very special. I wish I had been able to make it.

Jack: It was wonderful, you were missed, but it seemed like you had your hands full.

Victoria: Yes, maybe just a little. But I’m glad that they’ll be coming here so I can congratulate them in person.

Jack: And they’ll be bringing harrison with them.

Victoria: I know. Ashland is so looking forward to seeing his son.

Jack: Well, I happen to know the feeling is mutual. How is ashland doing?

Victoria: My fiancé’s very strong. He’s handling the treatments well.

Jack: Well, it sounds like congratulations are in order all around.

Nikki: Yes, we are on track to have a glorious wedding.

Victoria: Yes, as long as i make sure that everything is under control.

Nikki: Well, it is, darling. You don’t have to do another thing.

Victoria: Well, there are just actually a few more things that I do need to check on.

Jack: Victoria seems a little tense. Everything alright?

Victor: Now, billy boy, knowing you, I’m not a bit surprised that you’re loitering around where you’re not welcome.

Billy: I got an invitation, just like everyone else.

Victor: And you didn’t have the common sense to stay home?

Billy: If you don’t mind, victor, ashland and I are having a private conversation.

Victor: I don’t give a damn. I’m here to talk to the man who’s actually worthy of marrying my daughter.

Billy: Oh, come on. You don’t honestly believe that, do you?

Victor: You bet. Now, for your information, this is my property. I can have you thrown out of the damn place, or you walk out on your own.

Billy: Ashland, we’re not done yet, are we?

Ashland: I’m going to have to agree with my future father-in-law. Victor suggested that you leave the premises. So what are you waiting for? Scoot over.

Nikki: Well, yes, victoria is a little tense, but what bride isn’t? I was a bundle of nerves on our wedding day — both of them, as I recall.

Jack: Who could forget? I understand, though, there’s been a bit of friction between nicholas and victoria. I hope they’re not gonna let it ruin the day.

Nikki: Oh, no. But, uh, I can’t deny there’s has been a little bit of family conflict.

Jack: Well, I think that’s natural. Big event, lots of family. Nerves are bound to be frayed. Believe me. I have been in that situation with my sister more times than i can count. Everything works out in the end. It’s gonna be a stunning wedding.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, the ceremony is small, just those closest to them, but the reception is going to be a much grander celebration.

Nate: Nikki. Jack.

Nikki: Hey, nate!

Jack: Elena! Good to see you.

Elena: Great to see you, jack.

Nikki: I hope you’ve been enjoying yourselves.

Elena: How could we not in a place this beautiful?

Nate: We’ve already visited the neighborhood winery.

Jack: Ooh, I’m gonna add that to my list of things to do.

Elena: [ Laughs ] So, nikki, are you ready for the big day?

Nikki: I think I’ve just about got everything all set.

Elena: [ Laughs ] Well, then you’re doing much better than nate. He’s still struggling with his best man toast.

Nikki: Ohh!

Jack: Wait. Best man? I didn’t know that. In fact, I didn’t know the two of you were close at all.

Nate: Oh, it’s a new friendship, but a strong one.

Jack: Well, ashland is a man of many surprises.

Nikki: Yes, he certainly is.

[ Chuckles ]

Phyllis: Hey! Oh, well, looking at your face, it didn’t go how you wanted it.

Nick: That’s an understatement.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: I’m sorry. I know how you wanted everything to work out.

Nick: Well, my sister’s just not in a very forgiving mood.

Phyllis: What about your parents? Can they step in?

Nick: No, they can’t because they’re both firmly on team ashland.

Phyllis: Really? I don’t even get that.

Nick: Yeah, me either. Vick did say I could go to the wedding if I wanted to.

Phyllis: Well, alright, that’s good. I mean, she’s coming around. That should make you feel better.

Nick: No, because her heart wasn’t in it when she asked. She’s just tired of us arguing, so she reluctantly gave in. But she made it very clear that this decision is not an act of forgiveness.

Phyllis: I don’t know why she’s being like this. Honestly, you’ve done everything you could, you know? You apologized. You were just trying to help her.

Nick: Well, it hasn’t done a damn bit of good because she still is really upset.

Phyllis: You know, I don’t get this. Maybe it’s the bridezilla thing. Maybe she’s just really tense before the wedding. You know what I mean? Because she’s being really, really petty, and she’s treating you like dirt. And I don’t like it.

Nick: Look, my sister has a right to feel the way she does, alright? So don’t use this as another opportunity to start trashing her. This is my battle. I’ll deal with it.

[ Sighs ]

Victoria: Hey, reed, listen. Don’t be sorry. I hate that you can’t make it, too, but I totally understand. Other than missing you, I mean, I’m good. Everything is fine. No. It’s more than fine. It’s — it’s perfection.

Billy: So, I guess whatever you had to say isn’t all that consequential in the grand scheme of things? Well, I will give you two your privacy. Oh, one last thing. Do you know where I can find victoria?

Victor: Billy boy, you’re pressing your luck, okay? You stay away from my daughter. This is her special occasion. I will not have you destroy her happy moments. Do you understand?

Billy: Oh, don’t worry. I won’t be the one to cause the bride any distress.

Victor: Now get out.

Ashland: I caught your look earlier. I hope this is important. I was just about to tell billy that victoria knows all my secrets, including the one that gaines is holding over my head. I was hoping it might undercut his plans to disrupt the wedding.

Victor: I don’t understand why victoria invited him in the first place, especially given the information I just received from adam.

Ashland: Another complication?

Victor: [ Sighs ] The chartered flight that billy was on apparently had another passenger.

Ashland: Lily, I would assume.

Victor: No. She’s flying separately with my grandchildren.

Ashland: So, who was with billy?

Victor: Jesse gaines.

Ashland: [ Sighs heavily ]

Victor: The description that I was given of him fit him perfectly, okay? And he’s the only other one who knows about your crime, ashland.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Elena: Wow. Everything about this place is incredible. The rolling hills, the majestic views. It’s breathtaking.

Nate: I second that.

Nikki: This place has always held a special spot in my heart. Victor and I have had many romantic holidays here.

Jack: You can almost feel the magic of tuscany in the air.

Nikki: Perfect for a wedding.

Phyllis: Listen, I know it’s your battle. I’m just in the trenches with you. I just wanted you to know that. I’m trying to help. I’m not trying to trash victoria. That’s not what I’m trying to do. I just want you to know that you’re not the one who’s wrong in any of this.

Nick: I just — I feel bad, you know? All I wanted to do was help my sister, but all I have done is hurt her. And I don’t want to do that anymore. I certainly don’t want to cast a shadow over her wedding by staying here.

Phyllis: Seriously? Are we leaving?

Nick: [ Sighs ]

Ashland: How did billy abbott get his hands on jesse gaines?

Victor: I don’t know. But you and I will have to think about this rationally. We have to handle him.

Ashland: Well, how did he make it to italy without you knowing?

Victoria: What’s going on?

Billy: Gaines, time to get ready. Gaines.

[ Sighs ] Damn it.

mr. Corbin? Dr. Navarro. How is — how — how are they, um…? Come in and see for yourself. Looks like we’re good. Yeah? W-we as in both? Both me and the baby, brando. We’re all good. Shawn: Alexis.

[ Sighs ] I’m sorry. I’m just worried about nikolas. He told me that spencer was the one stalking ava. Spencer? Mm. Well, that explains how he got past security at wyndemere. It’s his home. It’s really taken its toll on nikolas. I can imagine. No one can blame spencer for acting out, really. I mean, nikolas wasn’T… always the best role model. He’s not perfect, but he’s also good. You know, he went up against cyrus renault in order to keep me safe at pentonville. He’s got a good heart. Which is a real trick when you’re brought up in the reptile cage that is my family. Sorry. For what? For going on about the cassadines. I-I doubt very much that you came here to talk about nikolas. I’m sneaking up on you. Why are you announcing it? ‘Cause after months of being stalked by my son, I figured you’d rather not be surprised.

[ Chuckles ] Fair point. Took your advice. Tried to find spencer. Ran into trina’s mom instead. What did she have to stay? Quite a lot. She’s a tough lady. She is, indeed. Never found spencer, though. Actually, you just missed him. H-he was here, spencer, looking for you. Phyllis! Hello, nina. Hi. Um… what are you doing here in port charles? I came to see, well…

[ Chuckles lightly ] Sonny. Still not used to that name. I returned some of his things, and I met his wife. I also wanted to see you. But you’re busy. Maybe I should come back some other time. Hey. Hi. Hold all my calls.

[ Receiver clatters ] Okay. Let me have it. Sonny: A lot has happened since nixon falls. Yes, it has. And some things never change. You and carly…

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, we’re a family. Believe it or not, I actually want carly to be happy. Do you? I do. Mm. I want nina to be happy, too. Good luck with that. Yeah, there seems to be an obstacle in my way. I’m looking at him. Oh, I was hoping jax would be in the office by now. What’s the nature of my call? Well, I was hoping to discuss aurora media and the future of crimson magazine. Can you just tell him to call me back as soon as he gets in the office? Thank you. Look, I know what you’re gonna say. That if I target nina, I’m gonna make her out to be the victim. I don’t care. Nina’s gonna pay.

You two feel about your birthing classes? Great. Why? Do I need to do something over? You could not have been better or more supportive. She’s right. No do-overs for you. All that’s left is a tour of the delivery room and the nursery. I-I mean, I know my way around a garage, but a delivery room? I…uh, the classes were great, but does anything really prepare you? This will actually help. Once you see the delivery room and get a feel for it, you’ll find it’s not nearly as intimidating as you might imagine. Plus, we get to see all those babies in the nursery. I’ll go and arrange it.

[ Sighs ] It’s really happening. There’s still time for you to bail.

[ Laughs ] Never. We are in this together. You, me, and the baby makes three. Gladys: Make that four. Actually, this thing between nikolas and spencer has got me thinking about me and tj. Well, you two are in a lot better shape than spencer and nikolas. Unless there’s something you’re not telling me. No, no, we’re good. Great, even. I am sorry nikolas is having a tough time with his son. But he and spencer have time to make it right. Mm. I lost a lot of years with tj I’ll never get back. Yeah, I know. But the only direction is to move forward, yes? Alright, so tell me — what’s going on with the hayden shooting? Any new leads? So, my son realized he has to atone for the harm he’s caused, especially the pain he caused you. I wouldn’t go that far. Okay. Spencer — he’s a cassadine, he has pride, but at least he wants to meet me halfway. Right? Ava? Well… spencer came out here again after I kicked him out. He must have been genuinely remorseful. A little remorseful? That was my hope, as well. Especially because trina was here. And no matter what spencer thinks of me, I know that he admires trina, and I was hoping that — that her opinion would still matter to him. But… but what? What happened? I know I have no right to say this, but, phyllis, I’ve… I’ve really missed you so much. I miss you, too. This is a nice office. Mm. Nice view. Well, when I have a chance to look at it. All the fashion and excitement. It must be so glamorous. It has its moments. It makes me wonder why you ever left. Well, phyllis, you know why I left. Because you were hurting. Jax, a man you loved and trusted, had kept your daughter’s identity from you, siding with the woman you blame for her death. And that betrayal broke my heart. To think that the little girl I took to her adoptive family all those years ago… met such a tragic ending. Yeah, when I met nelle, it was too late to raise her, but maybe I could have… helped her. I’ll never know. And you made sonny’s wife suffer in return. You felt she took away your daughter, so you took away her husband. How does that feel now? It doesn’t feel great.

[ Chuckling ] Phyllis, you know, revenge isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be. It just ends up hurting you more. Well, then. If you know that, then maybe your time in nixon falls wasn’t a waste. No, it was not a waste. Despite everything, I wouldn’t trade my time in nixon falls for anything. The chance to get to know lenny and you. Not only us. You got to know… …someone else, too. Sonny: Nina made the choices she made. If she doesn’t like the way it turned out, then she only has to blame herself. Look, I am not defending nina or trying to justify what she did, sonny, but…

[ Sighs ] …You lived an entirely different life for the better part of a year. Mm-hmm. No corinthos organization, no territory to — to control or defend. No rival families. Mm-hmm. You were mike, and people cared about you and respected you not because you were sonny corinthos. I mean, how can you not be changed by that? I never said I wasn’T. My point is you have the power to be generous here, okay? Right. You can give nina the chance to come out of this better than she went in. I mean, can’t you find it in your heart to — to give her that chance? Why would I? Because you have your memory back. You have your wife and your family again. Yeah, the family that nina took from me. As I understand it, she gave you something, too — her heart. What would you do if you were me? Let nina get away with it? Let her sit in her office and hide in my hotel? Look, I understand you wanting nina to pay, but not if it costs you more than it costs her. Oh, it won’T. It won’T. Well, you — you don’t know that, carly. Nina was lying the whole time she was in nixon falls, keeping sonny’s existence a secret even from sonny. And what did that crazy bitch do when she came to town? She went to my grandson! Okay. So, why — why are you involving jax? Because I want nina to know what it feels like to lose something she loves, the way she took sonny from us.

Mom, you’re here. Why? Now, what kind of greeting is that fofofor the grandmother-to-be? You just happen to be at the hospital while sasha and i had our appointment? As a matter of fact, I had a follow-up. Making sure everything is okay with my wound. From when I took a bullet for you.

[ Chuckles ] You didn’t exactly throw yourself between me and a hail of gunfire. And — and how did you know where we were? Oh, you left your phone unlocked on the kitchen table. You should really be more careful with that. Yeah, you’re telling me. Gladys. Brando told me he sent you on a spa day. How was it?

[ Sighs ] A — a momentary respite from the horrors I experienced from jason and carly’s wedding. I mean, when I think that I might have been in that car with vincent novak when he and what’s-his-name were blown to smithereens, I can’t even — but you weren’T. But I could have been. Yeah, but you weren’T. And everything’s okay now, so… by “everything”… are you referring to cousin sonny? Rumor has it he’s alive. Is it true? Yes, ma. Sonny is alive and well. That’s wonderful. If only someone had called to tell me.

[ Chuckles ] That’s fine, though. Um… I’m sure everyone was so excited to see sonny that I was the last person on anyone’s mind.

[ Sighs ] All I can say is, though, hallelujah!

[ Chuckles ] Who says miracles don’t happen anymore? Well, we think our baby is a miracle. Oh, sure. Sure, sure. Yeah. But, um — but with sonny back at the wheel, brando doesn’t have to stay another minute in that garage. You can write your own ticket and ride it to the top, son. You haven’t heard a word I’ve said. About sonny or about me. You know, after we talked yesterday, you got me thinking about your uncle, victor cassadine, and how he was mixed up with crichton-clark. Now, jordan’s lead was a record-keeper. Drew could have also beenanother victim, since he was held captive at crichton-clark. Well, victor couldn’t have anything to do with hayden’s shooting, since he was already dead by then. So the cassadines couldn’t have been involved. Victor couldn’T. But what if we picked the wrong cassadine? Before I spoke to spencer, I left him alone with trina. I-I was hoping that she could talk some sense into him. Clearly, she didn’T.

[ Sighs ] Well, spencer doesn’t feel any remorse, because according to him, nobody got hurt. As if he didn’t cause sheer terror or use kiki’s memory against me or — or watch as I planned to leave the country without avery. It was all just harmless pranks to him. Unfortunately, I think I know where he gets that attitude. I wasn’t having any of it, of course. And I told him that his — his plan to break us up failed miserably. We’re back together. Still together. Better than ever. Yeah, that’s right. Because nothing he or anyone else can do will ever come between us. So, how did he take it? Mm… not well. Lenny was never one to leave photos on his camera. And I used to put together photo albums as a hobby, the old-fashioned way. You can keep those if you want them. No, no. Thank you, though. It’s just I have to find a way to forget about mike. Like he never existed, which… I guess he didn’T. Except we both know he did. Mike was real, nina. I don’t care what anyone says. Even sonny. It was mike, not sonny, who made lenny’s last days better, and all the days before that while he was with us at the tan-O. I knew who he really was the whole time, and I kept quiet. Initially, it was because I wanted to hurt carly. But then it was because I fell… well, there was a time between wanting to hurt sonny’s wife and falling in love with mike. Why not speak up then? Because m– s-sonny was so happy. You’re so kind. And I-I repaid that kindness by lying to you, and I am so sorry it cost you the tan-O. The tan-o! This place that you and lenny loved. You shared so much of your life there, and I am so sorry. And I told you after the fire, a building is just stuff. It’s people who matter. Yeah. I wish I could see the world the way you do. It’s just too late for me now. It’s never too late, nina. Isn’t mike’s li– sonny’s life proof of that?

[ Sighs ] Sonny: I can’t help nina. I gotta — I gotta focus on my life and my family. I was being honest when I said that I’m happy for you and carly, if for no other reason than it makes josslyn happy. You know, it was actually josslyn who led me back to nixon falls to find you. Josslyn? How does that happen? It seems that your pasta sauce is quite memorable. Uh, trina picked up some at the tan-o, she passed it on to josslyn, and josslyn said it tasted exactly like yours. And that’s what got me thinking. When I was shot… yeah? When I stopped the robbery in nixon falls, I thought I saw you right before they loaded me into the ambulance. Now, of course, I told myself that I was probably hallucinating. So, did — did, uh, you tell yourself that, or did nina tell you that? Look, the point is, when josslyn recognized the sauce, I-I-I just thought that it must have been you that I — that I saw. And you know the rest. Alright, well, remind me to give you a case of that pasta sauce. No, really… no, you don’t need to — no, no. Listen. You did find me. I owe you. And I always pay my debts. If you punish nina,it’s not gonna give you back all the time that you lost with sonny. Don’t you think I know that?

[ Chuckles ] And it’s — it’s not gonna make her lose anybody that she cares about. Well, that’s impossible, because nina doesn’t care about anyone but herself. And wiley. Do you think michael and willow will continue allowing nina to see wiley? Oh, even they can’t be that forgiving.

[ Scoffs ] Sonny doesn’t want me to go to war with nina. Carly, you have more important things to do. Yeah, I know. I need to sit down with sonny and tell him what we were feeling on our wedding day.

[ Sighs ] And I’m so afraid because I don’t want things to change between the three of us.

I told you once,I’ve told you a million times. I helped sonny with cyrus renault. That’s over. I’m out. I’m sorry, brando. Forgive me for only thinking of what’s best for you and your new family. If you want what’s best for me and my family, why would you want me anywhere near sonny’s world? What is so wrong with sonny’s world? You were just complaining about how in that world, you go to weddings in limos and you come home in little pieces. Please tell my son that I’ve come back from the spa refreshed and with a new attitude. If getting held at gunpoint by cyrus renault didn’t change your attitude, why would a massage and facial?

[ Scoffs ] Fine. Believe whatever you want, but I’m actually glad my son is no longer part of that violent world. If you really mean that, mom — of course I mean it! Then why are you pressuring me into working with sonny? Because he also has legitimate businesses. Lucrative ones. Well, everybody drinks coffee. And there’s that resort island, right? I-I think that’s still his. You — you can do better than the garage! But I like the garage. Like more. Like better. And remember, sonny owes you for all the time you were helping keep his family together at risk to your own life. That’s not even remotely true. And has dear, un-departed cousin sonny even bothered to say thank you? Okay, sasha, would you excuse us, please? Go right ahead. Come on, ma, let’s go. Good. Now we can talk. No, ma. I will talk. You will listen. What do you mean, the wrong cassadine? We both agree your family fingerprints are all over this. Yeah. I mean, as much as I’d like it to be victor, he was blown to bits. And the cassadines are resilient. However, an explosion like that, even for a cassadine, that might be hard to resurrect from. Well, victor’s not the only cassadine who’s made a return trip from the great beyond. So has nikolas. Nikolas: I’ll talk to spencer. Maybe I’ll even ask him to come home. If I can be the father that he needs, maybe he can be the man he’s meant to be. Don’t forget about the little pyromaniac that torched my car. Allegedly at his behest. You’re not buying it? Well, whether it was spencer’s idea or not, esme went through with it. And she left kiki’s I.D. Badge, which is just sadistic. I won’t argue with you there. Spencer is clearly under her spell. It’S…first love, first lust. He’ll outgrow it, and when he grows up a little and he sees what real love is — the kind we have — maybe he’ll stop fighting us. I hope so. Someday. The way I see it, if spencer can make the effort to see me, I can go to him. I’ll try to meet him halfway. Oh, you — uh, you might want to talk to a lawyer first. Why do I need a lawyer? You don’T. But spencer does. I always knew that it was gonna blow up in my face. I did. How could it not?

[ Chuckles ] And now, despite my many machinations, sonny’s back with carly as if nothing happened. As if we never happened. Maybe that’s my penance, phyllis. Sonny — he gets to move on, he gets to leave what we had in nixon falls behind. And me, I get to… stand in this beautiful office with this beautiful view and remember everything. Nobody’s asking you to forget, nina. If your time with mike really meant something, if it helped you heal the wounds that took you to nixon falls in the first place, don’t you owe it to him to honor that? To leave sonny to enjoy the life he’s chosen? When I saw mike today… …I didn’t give him everything. I’ve got something else that belongs to him.

[ Gasps ] Before the fire, before I got my memory back, we were talking at the overlook, and I had thrown my father’s watch in the river to forget my past. Yeah, I remember trying to warn you. Yeah. Thing about the past, you can run from it, you can even hide for a little while, but eventually, it always catches up with you. For once, I should have listened to you. Yeah, maybe. But I figured, you know, you had to find out your own way. Well, now I know you were just looking out for her. And that’s exactly what I’m doing now, sonny. If you ever had feelings for nina, recognize the good in her, despite the wrong she did. Find a way to let go of your anger and — and just walk away. Carly: Do you think he’ll understand?

[ Sighs ] I mean, he’s your husband. He’s my best friend. I know. But it would be one thing if we were getting married to save the business, but by the time we said our wedding vows, it was more. I mean, sonny knows we thought he was dead. I mean, I think — I think he’s gonna understand.

[ Voice breaking ] We were without him for nine months. And he was without us, and… I mean, he didn’t even remember us, you know? So what if the person that sonny became — what if this man, this bartender, mike — what if it’s changed sonny? It doesn’t seem like he’s changed. Maybe “changed” is the wrong word. You know, I just, um… sonny has these experiences that I — I don’t share. I don’t know anything about them. It’s just one more thing that nina took from me — the certainty of who my husband is. Carly, nine months is a long time. There’s gonna be gaps. You’re gonna feel awkward sometimes. Okay? But the only way past it is to go through it. Ugh! You have to face it and deal with it. Jason. I know. But just start new memories together. Yeah. Okay. I mean, we talked a lot last night. W-we were talking a lot last night, and — and I asked him, “why didn’t you tell me that nina knew you were in nixon falls?” And he’s like, “I just didn’t want you going after her and doing all that stuff.” And I have to say that when I woke up this morning, revenge was the furthest thing from my mind. Was it? Yes, because sonny’s alive. And he’s my husband, and I love him.

I saw sonny today, and he thanked me for looking out for his family. He also offered me a job.

[ Laughs ] Why didn’t you say so?!

[ Gasps ] When do you start? I don’t! I’m glad that sonny is back with carly and their family. But I got a family of my own now, and I made it clear to him and I made it clear to sasha that I want to find my own way without help from sonny. In the garage he gave you. That is payment for keeping dev’s secret. A secret that you blew when you told cyrus renault. When are you gonna stop throwing that in my face? Dev was like a grandson to me. I know, I know. Hey. You got a new grandchild on the way. But am I even gonna be part of that child’s life? You keep pushing me away. Is there a place for me in your new family or not? Knock it off, ma. I love you. I always will. But I know who you are, and I know how you operate. You want to keep picking at sonny and pissing him off? Be my guest. But I’m not gonna have any part of that. Are we clear? Excuse me, mr. Corbin. If you and sasha are ready for that tour… yes, we’re more than ready. We’re finished here, right, mom? You think I’m wrong about nikolas? I don’t like that you think nikolas had anything to do with it at all.

[ Sighs ] And what I like even less is that I’m not dismissing the possibility. Why do you suspect nikolas? After I saw you yesterday, I spoke with jax. You may recall when he and hayden returned to port charles and they both worked with nikolas. I remember. And I’m also sure you remember that years prior, nikolas and hayden were married. Yes, I know. And e-everyone knows that they didn’t really get along, but they were working together to bring valentin down. You know, enemies of my enemies. They were. Until she disappeared without a trace. Why do you think nikolas had anything to do with hayden’s disappearance? I didn’t say that. Nikolas did. You had my son arrested?! Spencer left me with no other choice. He made it very clear that he would not stop until we were broken up. And I-I can’t take any chances, not when avery’s involved. But you were the one that said we could find a way to forgive. Well, spencer and you. I didn’t say anything about me. We are the adults. We can be the bigger people. I tried that. I did. I-I wanted to forgive spencer. But there is another side of that coin — repentance! And he didn’t just terrorize me. He brought my little girl into it. He never would have hurt avery. Maybe not intentionally, but he could have pulled some stunt and she could have ended up collateral damage. Spencer needs to learn there are consequences for his actions! You are right, and I failed him in that concern. So you keep saying. Now is the time to do something about it. Like putting him behind bars? Well, the only reason I did that, to be perfectly blunt — I need him to learn to not mess with me. Yeah. I-I can respect that. You can? You’re not mad? I don’t love it. But I get it. Well! Thank you. At the same time, alexis convinced me to be a better father to my son, to make a difference in his life. The sooner, the better. Uh-huh. But how am I supposed to do that when my son is behind bars? Phyllis: I found it on the river walk near lenny’s favorite fishing spot. The watch! Sonny’s one link to his past. That’s why he tossed it away. He was saying goodbye to whoever he was and wherever he came from. All that mattered was his future with you.

[ Exhales sharply ] Well, for what it’s worth, at least in that moment, he chose me. Even though I didn’t deserve it. Sonny: Nina’s the one who can’t let go. Truth is, she shouldn’t have come to port charles. She should’ve stayed in nixon falls and started a new life. Like you did? Well, like I did, but my life’s here. The one that nina tried to take from me. I am not trying to ask you to forget what nina did. Okay, but you have your life back now. So whatever — whatever happened between you and nina, the good and the bad, leave it in nixon falls where it belongs. Appreciate it. Okay. I’m happy for you.

[ Sighs ] And for sonny. Hey, look, you guys — you guys should be together. And now that you are, all the more reason to put nina behind you. Oh. I don’t know how to do that.

[ Scoffs ] I keep… I keep watching sonny and I keep thinking, is the sonny that came back the sonny that I’ve always known? Is it my sonny? Carly, it’s — it’s sonny. For nine months, we thought he was dead. You thought you were gonna spend the rest of your life without him, and now he’s home. Whatever happened in nixon falls, it doesn’t matter. Now you sound like sonny.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone rings ]

[ Sighs, sniffles ] Jax, I’ve been waiting to hear from you.

[ Babies fussing ] You know, dr. Navarro was right. After seeing the delivery room, I think we can do this. Famous last words from the father.

[ Laughs ]

[ Chuckles ] Hey. I honor and respect you for doing all the hard work, and I just want you to know I’m gonna be right there to support you. And on the bright side, after it’s all over, we get one of those. Yeah. Makes it all worthwhile, doesn’t it? Sure does. When jax confronted him, nikolas admitted he turned up the heat on hayden to force her to leave town. That doesn’t mean nikolas was responsible for hayden’s shooting years before. True, and the fact that they worked together after means either she didn’t know or she figured somehow to forgive him. Okay, let me play devil’s advocate. How does any of this connect nikolas to all of the insanity that went down at crichton-clark? Maybe it doesn’T. Alright? Maybe he was only involved in hayden’s shooting. Or maybe none of it. Look, all I have are pieces that may or may not fit together. Jax said you would want to hear the truth. Now I’ve told you. Who else are you gonna share your suspicions with? That depends on you. You have been an incredible friend to me. You and your family are a big reason I’m walking around. It was our pleasure. I care about you, my friend. And I owe you big time. So… you just say the word, and I’ll drop this whole thing. How do you guide spencer while he’s in jail? Well, you go and visit him. It’s not like he can go anywhere. And once I get there? The only way to reach spencer is to show him that he can’t escape what he’s done. So, please, under no circumstances, nikolas, can you — I-I won’T. I won’t bail him out. And don’t let that esme bail him out either. He needs to just sit there. He needs to reach rock bottom. You know, that’s the only way you’ll be able to reach a meaningful hand out to help him. Tough love. Yeah. Spencer needs to realize… that he needs you, he needs your love. He needs his father. Until he realizes that, this cycle is just gonna keep going, and you can’t let it. That cannot happen. For spencer’s sake — for ours — it’s got to stop. Now. Yes, jax, I wanted to talk to you about crimson. Never mind. Um, you know what? You can run your business without my two cents. No, no, no, I’m open to input, in the spirit of mutual cooperation. It — it was an idea. Okay? It was just an idea I had, but it was a bad idea. Did you just admit to having a bad idea? Yes, jax, I did. Okay? Goodbye. Nina’s off limits — for now. Why didn ‘t you give sonny backhis watch when you saw him? I thought it might bring back too many painful memories. Maybe I should have left it where he dropped it. Listen, you always make the right decisions. It’s frustrating.

[ Chuckles ] I’ll make sure he gets it.

What did you say to your mother? Oh, I just established some ground rules. I think this time she got the message. Ah! Oh! Oh, look at that one! He’s as bald as a basketball.

[ Laughs ] Oh. How likely do you think it is that nikolas had hayden shot?

[ Sighs ] That likely, huh? If I’m right, is that something you think you can live with knowing? I’ve spent my whole life and — and a career, when I still had one, seeking justice. A terrible injustice was done to you, and you deserve justice. And it would be hypocritical of me to not let you get that. No matter where it leads? No matter where it leads. Nikolas: I know you’re right. Spencer — he has to own his mistakes. Otherwise, he will never learn, he’ll never change, and he has to change. If spencer learns his lesson — no matter how painful it is — he has the chance to walk out of that jail a better man. A man more like his father. Alexis: Think about what I said.

I believe in you.

[ Sighs ] Oh. You made the right decision. Doesn’t feel like it. Well, because you’re not used to it. I’m not used to making the right decisions? No, you’re not used to letting things go. Because it goes against every instinct I have. What kind of message am I sending nina by letting her get away with this, I mean, what she did to my family? I think nina knows that you’re not okay with this. If nina stays the hell away from me and my family, then maybe we can avoid a war. I’ll leave you two to talk. Remember the mike in you. Be kind.

alexis: How you doing? Shouldn’t that be my line? Ava stopped here on the way out of town. Sorry. You’re probably heartbroken, huh? Ava didn’t leave town. We’re back together. Oh, that’s good, isn’t it? Got my wife back, but I lost my son in the process. Esme. What’s wrong? Something happen with spencer? Esme: Spence is okay. As okay as he can be, considering he just lost his father and his best friends. Spencer: What are you doing here? Visiting my friend. Better question is, what are you doing here? I’m looking for my father. He isn’t home. My mistake. So you admit you make them. When it comes to my dad, yeah. But not when it comes to me. No. How can you say that to ava after everything you’ve done to her? It’s more complicated than that. It’s really not. Forget it. I’m out of here. Trina, wait. It’s good to see you, sonny. It’s good to be back. Yeah, when I heard the news… something else, right?

[ Laughs ]

[ Chuckles ] You, uh — you were definitely missed. Thanks. Listen, jason told me about the situation with renault. Yeah, just another day at the office. But in all seriousness, I was glad to help the family. Family is everything. It’s about to get bigger. How’s that? I’m gonna be a father.

[ Laughs ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Knock on door ] Yeah, come in. Good news. Hey. Okay, tell me. This study shows the cross-promotion not only boosted deception sales, but also crimson circulation. Oh, that’s great news. Yeah, I guess I should have said great news. Alright. You didn’t have to deliver this yourself

and in person, so…what’s up? There is something I need to say to you. Are you ready for some radical honesty? I am if you are. So what do you want to be so honest about? Jason. Thanks for meeting me. Absolutely. I assume this is about hayden. How’s the investigation going? I’ve hit some roadblocks. Yeah, I heard that her mother was murdered right after you and sam spoke with her, right? It can’t be a coincidence. Okay, so how does this circle back to me?

I want to congratulate you and sasha. Happy for you. Brando: Thanks. Starting a family is a big deal. Yeah, yeah, I’m getting that sense. So you’re gonna need a job, you know, a good salary. I can work out something at the warehouse if you want. Thanks, sonny, really. But I’m — I’m out of the business. You are? Yeah. Sasha and I just want a quiet life with our baby. I’m a little surprised. I mean, you were so intent on being part of the organization. Is sasha pressuring you to leave? I was shocked when I heard you’d known that sonny was alive for months. Yeah, I’m sure you were. Watching that family grieve, especially michael — I know what I did was unforgivable, and you can tell me what you think of me. Go ahead. I can take it. Here, let me get you started. You think that I was cruel, that I was unfeeling? I think that you were in pain. And I think that you made a mistake, one that you will regret for the rest of your life. I wish I didn’t, but I know what that feels like. Cameron: Spencer’s dad cut him off. Emotionally and financially. Oh. Well, I guess that’s not too surprising, but still… it’s awful. So where are you guys staying? Nowhere at the moment. Well, I’m sure you two will figure it out. You and spencer are nothing if not resourceful. Cameron: Joss. No. I deserved that. Can I ask you something? Sure. Why are you here? You made it pretty clear that you blame us for sonny confronting nikolas, which I think is pretty funny considering you’re the one who told sonny nikolas was taking off with avery. I’m sorry. For which part? All of it. But try and put yourself in my position. Seeing my boyfriend in so much pain, it was torture, so I lashed out at you. And I shouldn’t have. Cameron’s been great talking me down. Yeah, well, that’s cameron. He’s pretty great. He said he could forgive me and spence. What about you? Alexis: What’s wrong with spencer? It’s not the stalker, is it? Spencer is the stalker. No. Yes. Are you sure? He admitted it. Wow. I thought you were wrong. Guess it was me who was wrong. Spencer? I still can’t understand how my son was capable of such cruelty. He’s different, alexis. Colder. I wonder why. Maybe it’s because of you. Spencer: Can we go somewhere and talk? I have no interest in going anywhere with you. Then would you mind, please, giving us some privacy? It depends. Trina, would you like privacy? I guess I’ll hear him out. Okay. I have a phone call to make. I won’t be far. Holler if you need me. Thanks, ava. Do you want to sit? No. What did ava say to you to make you so angry? Ava didn’t say anything to me, spencer. You’re the one that makes me angry. But I thought that we might be on better terms after my apology. You call that an apology? Nuh-unh. You’re gonna have to up your game. I’m not implying you had anything to do with naomi’s murder. Well, I’m glad I’m not on the suspect list. I just found myself stuck, trying to figure out who shot hayden, so I’m reviewing everything I know so far. Hoping something gets you unstuck. Exactly. Well, I’m at your disposal. Okay. So when sam and i spoke to you last, you said we should talk to nikolas cassadine. I remember. Was he no help? Nikolas claimed he had nothing to add. You think he’s lying? If there’s a link between naomi dreyfus’ murder and drew’s disappearance, then sam’s investigation just got a bit more dangerous. Well, I can see why that might concern you. This somehow leads back to the cassadines. It always does. So we need to figure out how before even more people get killed. Let’s just say someone just recently reminded me what the cassadines are capable of. Everything I said to you that day at the hospital, it was a bunch of crap. I just wanted you to let go. Of jason? Yeah. I mean, for your own sake. And I knew jason wouldn’t do it, so I had to. What — what are you… so you lied? Yeah.

So you and jason don’t love each other. Of course we love each other, but that’s not why we got married. It was a business situation. Carly, do you think I’m stupid? No. Jason was on the run. You went to some business meeting because you had to fill in for him, and then he went back and saved your life. I was there in the room taking a bullet out of his side. Of course this was about the business. And then it became about more. Jason and I thought sonny was dead, obviously, so if we were going to be married, we wanted it to be real. Real? Wha– real. All the bells and whistles. A true husband and wife. And… we were happy. Well, this is gonna sound snarky, but I actually mean it. It must have been hard when sonny came home. But he is home, and that’s all that matters. Jason and i are processing, but we both know what we want. Which is? For things to go back to the way they were. . If part of going back is… trying to make things okay with me and jason, I’m sorry, that’s not gonna happen. It was sasha who was concerned about the danger, but we’re a team, so I couldn’t just ignore it. And let’s be real, it’s not like she was wrong. No, she’s — yeah, I get it. So in the end, we came to a decision together. And now my focus is on making the garage a success. You’re gonna be great. Life’s crazy, isn’t it? And all the — all the twists and turns. You know, if you would’ve asked me a few months ago what I thought it would be like… it wouldn’t be this? No.

[ Laughs ] Not then. Unh-unh. But now… the idea of putting in an honest day’s work and coming home to the people I love… yeah, it just feels right. There are perks to the simple life. Yeah, but it’s not for everyone. I mean, take you, for instance. Your life is anything but simple. Thank you for being so kind. I don’t deserve it, but… it means the world. Well, now that I am about to be a mom, it’s really sunk in, you know? How horribly wrong I was to pretend to be your daughter. If this child was taken from me somehow, I can’t even imagine. But you can, and that is because of me, and I am so sorry, nina. You are gonna be a fantastic mother. I hope so. I know so.

[ Chuckles ] Well, if that is true, then it is in large part because of you. It may not have been real, but you showed me what it looked like to be a kind and loving mother. And even after you knew what I had done, when you should have despised me, you still showed me compassion. Nina, I — I mean it. If it was not for you and carly, I might still be on drugs right now. No, I don’t know about that. Carly was the one who sat me down and gave it to me straight, and then you reached out and you really cared, and that changed everything for me. Maybe you and carly aren’t as far apart as you think. Maybe we weren’t then, but… we certainly are now. You got to remember, I wasn’t living in port charles when hayden was shot. I’m actually more interested of your impression of hayden and nikolas when you three were working together right before she disappeared. Impression of their relationship? Oh, it was contentious, to say the least. But nikolas was in a bad place back then. You know, he was completely unpredictable. I mean, the fact that he scared hayden so badly that she left town? Oh, hold on. Nikolas was the reason hayden left town? Sorry, this is my fault? Of course it is. And you know that, which is why you came here to talk to your aunt alexis because you know that I’ll tell you how it is. And how is it, alexis? Nikolas, you let your son believe you were dead. I mean, I get that you you wanted the cassadine fortune, but that can’t trump your relationship with your own son. You hurt him. Yeah, and he hurt me right back. Spencer was always into pranks, but this one really is on a whole new level. Yeah, you think? Does he know the gravity of what he’s done?

[ Scoffs ] Something ava said stuck with me. You know, we’re not even sure if spencer’s sorry for the acts or just sorry that they didn’t work. I know the pain of feeling like you’ve failed your kid, but you haven’T. Y-you guys will work it out. I don’t want to work it out. No, spencer’s gone from my life because I threw him out. That’s the worst thing you could have done. Cameron, spencer, and i have been friends basically our whole lives. That’s really beautiful. Yeah. So if spencer is truly sorry for what he’s done to everybody, then, yes, I will find a way to forgive him. Life’s too short. That’s all I ask. So are you okay after talking to nina? It was intense, and I’ll fill you in later. Hmm. Talk now. I’m headed inside to grab a coffee anyways. Thank you again.

[ Whispering ] I owe you one. Yeah, it’s no problem.

[ Scoffs ] Wow. Yeah. That girl will say or do anything, won’t she? What? Her whole contrite act, crying on your shoulder out here? I mean, did she really think we’d buy it? You don’t? I’m bad at apologizing. I guess I haven’t done it much in my life. And that’s a start. But you can’t just say you’re bad at something. You actually have to get better. I told you I deserved whatever you threw at me. That’s not the same as actually saying, “I’m sorry.” I am sorry. For what? That I took it this far. And that I let you get caught up in it. You could have stopped when you saw me at the gallery. Trina, the sprinklers were already set to go off. Then you could have taken off your stupid mask. Do you know how scared I was? I thought you were gonna hurt me or worse. So it’s pretty obvious that at no point in your plan did you think of anyone else besides yourself. That’s not true. Sure, it is. There are so many ways you could have played it. You didn’t want me to see your face, fine. Then you could have told me I wasn’t in any danger, but you didn’t because you didn’t care because I was nobody to you.

[ Chuckles ] No. No, you are not nobody.

On is only 18. He comes upwith this elaborate plan to terrorize ava, first in hiding, not telling me he’s back in port charles, but then face-to-face, alexis, unrelenting, even when he saw all of the pain he was causing. He is a true cassadine. Which is exactly why he needs his father right now. What he did is unconscionable. What do you call what you did? I know this is hard for you to hear, but he’s acting just like you, and slamming the door in his face isn’t a solution. He needs guidance, not abandonment. This is no time for you to be turning your back on him. You are the opposite of nobody. I knew that the moment I laid eyes on you. You mean right before you covered me in fake blood? It was the way you stood up to me. You got in my face, whipped out that pepper spray without flinching, even though you knew it was empty. I’m so glad my terror is a fond memory for you. And then after that, you — the way that you bounced back, trina, you refused to let me ruin your night, and I thought that that was so cool. It proved to me that you were someone worth knowing. Or maybe somebody that could cover up for you in case I figured out who you really were. I’m sorry I lied. About everything. No, not everything. I wasn’t lying when I told you that guy at the gallery was a jerk. And I wasn’t lying when I said that it never should have happened to you. Tell me you believe me. Believe what? That you’re even capable of telling the truth? All I’m saying is that esme seemed genuinely upset when I spoke to her earlier. Esme can se you don’t think she cares for spencer? If she did, then why did she try to turn him against us and put his father in danger by lying to sonny? She apologized for that, and by the way, she didn’t lie. No? No. No, she thought that avery was going with nikolas and ava. And why wouldn’t she? Avery is ava’s daughter. You really believe her? Why would she bother coming up with a cover story? Spencer’s obviously crazy for her. She doesn’t need our seal of approval. I don’t know, I just — I — I get this vibe from her and I don’t like it. I think she’s using spencer. For what? He’s richer than god, cam. So is esme. How do we know that? Because she said so? Cam, think about it. I mean, what do we actually know about her? Okay, say that you’re right. Esme’s after the money. Now that spencer’s cut off from his father, shouldn’t she be getting the hell out of here and dumping him? Why is she still in port charles? Esme: Hello? This is she. Really, I got the internship at spring ridge? Thank you so much. I can’t wait to get started. Jax: You didn’t know? Hayden ran because she thought that valentin was after her, but it was actually nikolas that wanted her gone. I’m surprised that elizabeth didn’t mention that. Although hayden disappeared years after she was shot. I mean, who knows if the two incidents are connected. Yeah, but if they are, this could get complicated. How? You think alexis would be okay with me investigating her nephew? She’s the reason I’m out of prison, jax. I owe her everything. Alexis, of all people, would want to know the truth. Thanks for your time. No problem. Jason’s an amazing guy. He’s the best. And the time I spent with him was wonderful. And you don’t want that back? No. Look, I’m sorry for what happened to you, and I’m sorry for jason and what happened with almost getting married and then sonny, and… I mean, that’s super complicated. But for me, it was a blessing. Losing jason was a blessing? Yeah, because if I had actually let myself fall for him and then realized that you were always gonna come first, and I do mean always, I would have lost my mind.

No one knows how wrong I was more than I do, but carly thinks it was only about revenge, and it wasn’T. I mean, the initial phone call when I tried to tell her about sonny — yes, I gave into a bad impulse at the moment, but I fully intended to pick up the phone the next day and tell her about him. Why didn’t you? Because it — it — it just — it quickly became less about carly and more about this — this place, nixon falls, and how happy sonny was. I created this whole new world and I just got swept up in it, you know? And it didn’t have anything to do with carly. Yes, I felt bad about keeping the secret, but I wasn’t doing it to get back at her. It’s just really hard to explain. No, I think I understand. You were really happy there, weren’t you? Sonny: [ Laughs ] Oh. I was.

[ Chuckles ] What? It’s just really hard to imagine sonny as a bartender. Yeah, well, he was just a lot different without the weight of being in the mob on his shoulders. In what way? Just lighter. More joyful. More at peace. Let’s hope that brando feels the same way. I respect your determination to make it on your own. My own? That’s a stretch. I only have the garage because of you. Oh, you definitely earned it. So I may not need a job, but, um… I could use some pointers in the dad department. I always knew you were a good one, but seeing how your family tried to move on, how big a hole you left when you were gone, that… you know, that really drove it home for me. You’re irreplaceable. Thank you. And you’re gonna be. Look, parenting isn’t something you can prepare for. I mean, you can read all the books you want on sleep and everything, but the way to do it… is to do it. On-the-job training.

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Exactly. That’s not intimidating or anything. And you already know what the most important thing is. What’s that? There’s nothing more important than family. So what happened when you talked to nina? It was awful. But I said what I wanted to say. So there’s that. Well, I’m proud of you. Thank you. Listen, I know that you want to get off the subject of spencer and esme — trust me, so do I — but esme is seriously sounding alarm bells off for me right now. Yeah, I’m kind of getting that. Look, I know that spencer is capable of some ridiculous crap, but sending that bear to avery and torching ava’s car, I mean, it’s just — it’s next level. Well, spencer’s dad made him believe that he was dead. Maybe spencer was just that angry. Or esme took it upon herself to raise the stakes and now spencer is being forced to cover for her. I am capable of telling the truth. I truly want you to forgive me. Why do you even care? Because I care what you think, trina. I care about you. Convenient timing, now that everyone hates you. The timing may be suspect, but it’s still the truth. I was hoping — I still am — to be your friend. Because you’re mine. You’re the only friend I’ve ever made who didn’t know me as spencer the cassadine heir or spencer the orphan, spencer the atm. Or spencer the jerk? Yeah, that too. I am sorry I manipulated you, and I am even more sorry that I hurt you. Please believe me. How? How can I believe anything you say, ever? Is everything alright? Uh, I have to go. I’ll take the launch break with you. No, I’d rather go alone. Finally… I have you all to myself. It’s so much more civil to look your enemy straight in the eye. Don’t you agree?

Well, I’m glad to hear that brando’s out of the family business now that you two are about to become parents. I mean, you’re gonna have a baby, look at you. Can you believe it? No. So how are you feeling? I’m okay. I — my blood pressure was high, so I was on bed rest for a while. Oh, no. It’s better now, though, so I can finally leave the house. That must feel nice. Oh, yeah. Turns out I am not meant for lounging around all day. Mnh-mnh. So how is brando? How are things on that front? Everything’s great. Yeah? Yay!

[ Knock on door ] Well, look who it is. Wow. Your ears must have been burning. We were just talking about you. Oh, all good things, I hope. Only the best. Ah, from perks. Extra spinach, no ginger. Thank you. So sweet. I remember that you like ginger. I do. Baby doesn’T. Yes, of course. So what have you been up to? Um…I went to see sonny. I mean, look at the number you did on sam and elizabeth. Okay, there’s two sides to that story. Sure, elizabeth moved on, but I’ve heard enough hospital gossip, not to mention seeing it with my own eyes. She still carries a torch for him. Not that that will ever happen for her because you are his top priority. Look, if you think you’re selling me on the fact that you don’t want him… and if you think you’re selling me on being all magnanimous here, gifting jason back to me, please. And you know what that tells me? What? You still think you’re in control of jason’s life. “In control”? No, but I am a part of jason’s life, and I will not step aside, and accepting me is the price of admission. But isn’t he worth the price of admission? No. Coming in second doesn’t work for me. Britt, I get it. I really get it. And it’s your life, it’s your choice. Jason’s a hard habit to break. Not for me. Mr. Corinthos, hello. Dr. Westbourne. Yeah, okay. Hi. Hey. What’s going on? So how was your talk with phyllis? It was good. I’m lucky to have her as a friend, and hope you don’t mind, but I told her she could stay at the metro court. Of course. Oh, of course. But sadly, our bartender can’t compare it to tan-o’S.

[ Both laugh ] Alexis: Do better. Be better, nikolas, for your son. If I’m such a terrible role model, maybe spencer is better off without me. Stop whining. No, he said it himself. He did all these terrible things because he loved me. Isn’t that what you said to him when you played dead all those years? You did it for spencer? It’s the cassadine way. No. The cassadine way is to discard those that don’t fall in line. Fight for your kid. You’ve made some horrible decisions, nikolas, but you are a good man. So you stay in there and you teach your son to be a good man, too. Don’t let him down. I never said you were my enemy. You didn’t have to say it. I’m sure you’ve heard the expression, “actions speak louder than words.” And yours were deafening. But ultimately, they failed. I’m still here. And you don’t have to like me, spencer, but you do have to hear me when I say that this is over. There will be no more attacks. There will be no more scare tactics. Never again. It’s not like anyone got hurt. I was trying to teach you a lesson. “It’s not like anybody got hurt”? You don’t think being separated from my child hurt? You don’t think planning to leave her behind hurt? You fired the first shot when you refused to testify against valentin. You chose your face over my father. As we discussed, that was wrong, but it does not give you the right to terrorize me. I’m sorry I took it this far, okay? How novel. But I am not sorry that I went after you. And we’re back. You’re bad for my father, ava. And that’s just a fact. Your father disagrees with you. I am his wife, and I’m not going anywhere. And if you ever come after me or my daughter again, there will be hell to pay — a hell unlike anything you have ever witnessed. You got me?

Alrighty. I got to go back to work. Okay. May I just add one thing? You said it yourself, you’ve known spencer since… forever. Yeah. Is it possible that you want to push the blame on esme because you don’t want to blame a friend? Mm… possible, but highly doubtful. I’ll see you later? Count on it. Bye. You’re really lucky to have cameron. He’s an amazing guy. Yeah, he is. Esme, what do you want? I want spence to be happy. That’s it? That’s it. And to be happy, he needs his friends. Cameron seems ready to put all this behind us. I’m hoping you can do the same. I already told you that I’m not giving up on spencer. Just on me. Look… I may not be your favorite person, but spence and i are a package deal. Cameron accepts that. You’d be wise to do that, too. What is that supposed to mean? Just that I’d hate for you to be left behind. Hi, trina. Mm. What was that? Nothing good. I’m not intimidated by you, ava, and I will not let you poison my father against me. Your father’s relationship with you is up to him. As for me, nikolas knows that I will deal with you directly. And how are you gonna do that? Mrs. Cassadine, your housekeeper let us in. Excuse me, what are you guys doing? You can’t just waltz in here. I called them. You called the police to have me thrown out? Oh, no, don’t be silly. I called the police to have you arrested. What? Harassment, criminal mischief, breaking and entering. You’re about to face the consequences of what you’ve done. I don’t want to interrupt. That’s okay, I have to get going anyway. Think about what I said. I believe in you. Was it weird bringing up sonny in front of nina? It’s bound to happen. I just hope my friendship with nina doesn’t cause problems for you with your family. I can handle my family.

[ Sighs ] Good answer.

[ Both chuckle ] Hey, can I get a sip of that? Are you crazy? It’s all mine.

[ Laughs ]

[ Clears throat ] So brando asked my advice on fatherhood. Well, I’m not surprised. You are one of the best. One of the? Yes, of course I have to include michael in that.

[ Laughs ] Oh, yeah.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, I have a meeting. I forgot. It — it won’t take very long. Will you wait for me here? Oh, I’d wait for you anywhere. I’ll be back. Jax. Sonny, welcome home. Miss me? Well, josslyn did. Well, since you’re here, uh… we got a lot to chat about.

Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Chanel: That was quite a kiss.

Johnny: Well, that was my way of saying thank you for convincing my sister to do the movie.

Chanel: Allie and i are best friends. So she usually takes my advice.

Johnny: Which was a big help for me in this case. Can I ask you for one more thing?

Chanel: Well, it depends on what that thing is.

Johnny: I’ve got a lot more parts to cast. How would you feel about playing one of them?

John: “Possessed: The marlena evans story”? Did you know about this?

Roman: No, I didn’T. I put my money in this thing because your brother told me he wanted to make a movie about your mom. Now it’s all about marlena’s possession?

Allie: I’m sorry, grandpa. I just assume johnny told you.

John: I can’t even believe this.

Allie: He thought that this movie would make more of a– you know…

Roman: Yeah, moneymaker.

Allie: I mean, you have to admit it it’s pretty exciting. It’s not every day that somebody gets possessed by the devil.

Marlena: What are you talking about? What kind of plans do you have for ben’s baby?

Demon marlena: I don’t wanna spoil the surprise. Let’s just say it is imperative that ben weston and ciara brady conceive a child.

Marlena: Well, he doesn’t agree, and I’m not sure that I convinced him to change his mind.

Demon marlena: Don’t underestimate yourself, dr. Evans. Ben weston always listens to you. He takes your words to heart. And soon I’m going to get what I’ve been wanting for so long.

Ciara: How did it go with marlena? Did you talk to her about us starting a family?

Ben: Actually, yes, I did.

Ciara: You did? Well, did it make you feel any better?

Ben: It did.

Ciara: Wait, it did?

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: So does that mean–

Ben: If you wanna have this baby, let’s have a baby.

Ciara: Are you serious?

Ben: I know how important this is to you, and that makes it important to me. So let’s do this. Let’s make a baby.

Ciara: Oh, my god.

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

[Soft orchestration]


Chanel: So you really want me to be in your movie?

Johnny: Yeah, I do. I have a feeling that the camera would love you.

Chanel: Well, I have been told I take a great picture.

Johnny: Is that a yes?

Ciara: And I’ve always thought acting sounded like fun.

Johnny: Oh, so it is a yes.

Ciara: When I was little, I used to pretend to be those twins on “sister, sister,” and I would make my mama be the mom. She recorded a bunch of videos. She probably still has them.

Johnny: Well, if she does, I would love to see them.

Ciara: So if I did say yes to being in your movie, what role would I play? And if you say the devil I’m punching you in the face.

Johnny: No, you’re not the devil. I actually think I have the perfect role for you.

John: [Scoffs] No way this is gonna happen. He’s not gonna make this movie. Kiddo, did I not ask you to talk to your brother? Did I not practically beg you to convince him to stay away from this part of your grandmother’s life?

Allie: I did talk to him. I swear. But he is stubborn and he says that this is the movie he has to make. I mean, I don’t think anything is gonna stop him.

John: No, I just thought of one thing that can.

Marlena: I don’t understand. What makes ben and ciara’s child so special to you?

Demon marlena: Do I really have to spell it out? The child would inherit the genetics of a serial killer, a man who murdered three women. Young weston was right to be worried about passing on his dark, twisted legacy to his child. That’s where I need you.

Marlena: There’s no such thing as a serial killer gene.

Demon marlena: But as a psychiatrist, you must know that certain genes if nurtured in the proper environment, can result in psychopathic behavior. Weston himself had a sadistic father and a weak mother.

Marlena: Ben and ciara are not those parents.

Demon marlena: Just leave that part to me. That child could turn into the perfect instrument of evil.

Marlena: You don’t know ben the way I know him. He despises what he’s done. And he is not inherently evil.

Demon marlena: But the capacity for evil still resides in him as it would in his child.

Ciara: Oh, my god, I can’t believe this. Ben, you really want us to have a baby? You want that now?

Ben: I do.

Ciara: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, ben this is just– god, you made me so happy.

Ben: Oh, my god. I can see that.

Ciara: What did marlena say to change your mind?

Ben: Well, first of all, she said that half of our baby’s gene pool will be from your side, thank god. And since you are the best, strongest, most beautiful person I’ve ever met, I can’t be afraid of what’s happening on my side of things. And it’s not–I can’t let it stop us from having a baby. Like I said, it is important to me too for us to be parents. I wanna have a baby with you.

Ciara: Really?

Ben: Really.

Ciara: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, ben, I love you so much.

Ben: I love you so much. It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on

Abigail: Love-making has never really been an issue for us.

Chad: No, it hasn’T.

Abigail: However, you still have a lot of issues to work out, and I don’t wanna cloud that by being intimate too soon.

Chad: This–this kiss. It’s just–it’s pretend. It’s john and marlena kissing. Doesn’t have to mean a thing to–to chad and abigail.

Abigail: Oh, well, thank you very much for explaining that, mr. Stanislavsky.

Chad: I’m being– I’m being serious. Look, you don’t have to worry about me turning this into something that it’s– it’s– it’s not, all right? We’ll kiss, and then we’ll go upstairs. Well–we’ll sleep in separate bedrooms. That is unless you–you find me too–too irresistible.

Abigail: Suddenly, I don’t think that’s gonna to be very much of an issue.

Chad: No?

Abigail: No. Where were we?

Chad: Okay, all right. Okay. Do you really want me to go, doc?

Ej: Well, well. What have we here?

Johnny: So I was thinking you could play celeste perrault.

Chanel: Oh, interesting name. Tell me about her.

Johnny: She was my grandfather’s henchwoman.

Chanel: Oh, so she did his dirty work.

Johnny: Some of it, yeah. She was also his lover.

Chanel: And how does she fit into the story?

Johnny: Well, she was a psychic too. She was the first person who sensed that the devil was in salem.

Chanel: Oh, so she’s like the hero of the movie?

Johnny: She should be, yeah. But when she tried to warn everyone, nobody believed her.

Chanel: Why is that?

Johnny: Oh, you know how some people are about psychics.

Chanel: So what makes you think that I’d be the perfect celeste? Wait, is she black?

Johnny: Uh, well, yeah, yeah. Now that I–I guess she is. Now that I think about it, yeah.

Chanel: You–you guess?

Johnny: No, I mean she–she was–she is, yes, but that’s not why I thought of you. I mean, she’s–she’s strong, you know. She’s–she’s a woman doing a man’s job. She’s wise.

Chanel: Uh-huh.

Johnny: She’s beautiful.

Chanel: Uh-huh.

Johnny: And you have a connection to her.

Chanel: What connection?

Johnny: She–celeste is the mother of my aunt lexie, who is the mother of theo. Theo carver, the guy you dated.

Chanel: Wait, so let me get this straight. You want me to play my old boyfriend’s big mama?

Allie: How can you stop johnny?

John: Easy. You see your brother never bothered to get the rights to marlena’s story.

Allie: But he said that she encouraged him to make the movie.

Roman: Well, I’m sure she said that, because she didn’t know the movie was about her. Same as me.

John: Yeah, I’ll just talk to marlena, and I’m sure she will stop johnny from doing this.

Roman: Yeah, if she wants to shut it down, I do believe the law is on her side.

John: That’s a fact. I’m gonna head over to her office right now. She has one appointment with ben weston. But I’m sure she’s alone.

Ciara: Here you go.

Ben: Thank you, love.

Ciara: So this dream you told marlena about.

Ben: I had it in new orleans. I dreamed that we had a son. We came home, and we discovered that he killed his babysitter with a necktie.

Ciara: And you didn’t think to tell me about this?

Ben: Baby, we were on our honeymoon.

Ciara: Yeah, but, baby, i would have reassured you that it was all good.

Ben: I did not want you to have to reassure me. I didn’t wanna burden you. Like I said, we were on our honeymoon, and dr. Evans reassured me today. She’s not even sure if the illness that I had is actually hereditary. You know, and if god forbid there’s the chance that our kid does inherit that, there’s treatment.

Ciara: Mm-hmm, like you had.

Ben: Right.

Ciara: Right.

Ben: It doesn’t mean that we can’t not look for signs, you know. We can’t kid ourselves, but–

Ciara: No, we will not.

Ben: No.

Ciara: No.

Ben: And I’m still not a 100% gung ho, but I know that I can certainly live with my fears, especially if it means that you and i can start a family together.

Ciara: Sounds like marlena gave you some really good advice.

Ben: She did give me good advice.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Ben: She was a little different, though.

Ciara: How so?

Ben: Usually, she doesn’t tell me what to do. She lets me make my own decisions for myself, but today she made it seem like I would be making this huge mistake if I decided to never have kids. Like, she really wanted me to listen to her. It was almost like…

Ciara: Almost like what?

Ben: Like she had a personal stake in us having a baby.

Ciara: Hmm.

Marlena: Even if ben and ciara’s child were predisposed to evil behavior, it doesn’t mean that behavior would ever surface.

Demon marlena: Must you be such a doomsayer?

Marlena: Look, ben and ciara would be kind and loving parents, and–and they would–they would raise their child in a loving and safe environment.

Demon marlena: But there are cases where biology is destiny. Ben weston was conditioned by clyde weston to become the necktie killer. Even though that need in him was dormant for years and years, he couldn’t escape the evil that clyde had planted inside him. And clyde himself is the product of generations of evildoers. I chose ben very carefully.

Marlena: But ciara would be the mother, and she is a product of–of two loving and caring families, the bradys and the hortons.

Demon marlena: I never said it wouldn’t be a struggle but the struggle is what makes this all so perfect.

To be a thriver with

metastatic breast cancer

Ej: I just came down for a nightcap. Feel free to continue with your reconciliation or whatever it was.

Abigail: Actually, chad was just helping me run lines for a scene from your son’s movie. We were–we were pretending to be john and marlena.

Ej: Hmm, it’s not enough to provide funding for johnny’s little project?

Chad: I was helping my wife with her lines. It’s called being a supportive husband.

Abigail: Yeah, and since the role of john hasn’t really been cast yet…

Chad: Oh, no. You know what? That’s right. Maybe I should audition for it. It’d be a–a real kick to act with my wife in my nephew’s movie.

Johnny: Chanel, listen to me.

Chanel: I’ve heard enough. You want me to play theo’s granny?

Johnny: Whoa, you’d be playing her as a young woman, not as a granny. I mean, if–if you have a problem with it, you could always play the part of her daughter. It’s a smaller role, but aunt lexie was the doctor who took care of my grandmother in the hospital.

Chanel: So my only options are to play theo’s mama or his big mama.

Johnny: Allie’s playing our mother. I mean, it’s not that strange.

Chanel: I’m pretty sure theo carver would think it was strange.

Johnny: So you’re turning me down.

Chanel: I’m gonna have to think about it.

Ciara: Baby, I know it wasn’t easy for you to change your mind, and I know you did it mostly for me. So I have to ask you if you’re sure that this is what you really want, because as much as I want to have a baby with you, I–I don’t want you to do this if you think you have to because you owe me or something.

Ben: Do you know how much I love you?

Ciara: Yes.

Ben: If I wasn’t scared of what my genes might do to our baby, I would have been on board with this from the start. I’m not doing it because you want it or just because you want it. Dr. Evans made me feel a whole lot better about this whole idea. I cannot wait to make a baby with you.

Ciara: I can’t wait either. So should we take the first step? Because I’m not gonna be needing these anymore.

Ben: Go for it.

Demon marlena: Don’t you see? Ben and ciara’s bloodlines are the perfect combination. Their progeny will have enormous potential for evil and also a pure and innocent soul, one that could be easily corrupted. It’s going to be wonderful. It’s exactly what I have been wanting for so long.

Marlena: What does that mean?

Demon marlena: You don’t need to trouble yourself with that–

Marlena: But I do. You forced me to persuade ben to have this child. Now you’re telling me that you’ve had plans for this child right along?

Demon marlena: When you risked your professional reputation to have ben released from the sanitarium, and of all the psychiatrists in the world he became your patient, it was as if the stars suddenly aligned. It was glorious.

Marlena: I will not allow you to use ben.

Demon marlena: What are you doing?

Marlena: What I have to do. I’m gonna warn him.

Demon marlena: You will do no such thing.

Marlena: You try and stop me.

[Knock at door]

John: Doc, you busy?

Marlena: Come in.

John: Whoa. You’re alone. I could have sworn I heard another voice. Now, we all know progressive offers 24/7 protection,

Ej: It’s your favorite pastime, isn’t it, getting under my skin?

Chad: Okay. You–you think that everything is about you? Look, I mean, playing a married couple with problems could be good for us.

Abigail: I never thought of it that way.

Ej: And when will you do your job, the one where you run an international corporation?

Chad: I can do both.

Ej: Oh, really? We’re supposed to be sharing the position of ceo. But the only one working long hours is me. Chad: I can’t help if I’m better at time management than you are.

Ej: That’s your assessment. Mine is that you are simply not pulling your weight. And once I express that concern to shin, I think he will agree with me.

Johnny: Chanel, please. I really want you to play the part of celeste. You’d really be great.

Chanel: Well, then you should stop playing director for a little while and do some more of that wooing.

Johnny: I left my guitar back in my bedroom, but we could go back there and I don’t know.

Chanel: Is that where you keep your casting couch?

Johnny: You are really giving me a hard time tonight.

Chanel: Yeah, it’s good for you. You’ll thank me later. But I wouldn’t be opposed to you taking me to dinner.

Johnny: Well, my father has cut me off financially, as you know, but we could go to the pub. I’m sure I could talk my grandpa into giving us a free meal.

Chanel: You really think you can just charm your way through this world, don’t you?

Johnny: Well, yeah. ‘Cause I usually can. You coming?

John: Thought you still might be in your session with ben. Were you talking with him on the phone?

Marlena: No, I–I recorded our session, and I was listening to it.

John: And how did it go?

Marlena: Well, for some reason I–I think I might have led him down the wrong path. So, I–I think I–I need to talk to him.

John: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Now?

Marlena: Yeah, I think this shouldn’t wait.

John: No, I–I–I don’t think that’s a good idea. Because you are paler now than you were when left the house. Something’s going on that’s got you upset.

Marlena: It was a very emo–it was a very emotional session, and–and I think ben still needs me.

John: Sweetheart, I know how committed you are to your patients, and I respect that, but right now tonight you’re gonna shut it down. I’m gonna take you home. You talk to ben tomorrow.

Marlena: John, this is not–

John: I’m not taking no for an answer, sweetheart. Let’s go. Let’s go. Now.

Marlena: Fine. I’m fine.

John: Come on.

Ben: How soon after you stop taking the pill can you get pregnant?

Ciara: I don’t know. Let me check.

Ben: Check. Please, please, please.

Ciara: Okay, so it says here that I can get pregnant immediately.

Ben: Okay.

Ciara: Or it can take up to a year.

Ben: It doesn’t really narrow it down. Does it?

Ciara: Uh-uh. It also says that if I stop taking the pill in the middle of my pack, which I am doing, I can get pregnant right away. It’s rare, but it does happen.

Ben: Ooh, well, then what better time than the present, huh? Am I wrong?

Ciara: No.

Ben: I didn’t think so. On the outside, I looked fine.

Chad: You know, I’d–I’d like to work hard, ej, but the truth is you’ve been inching me out of the process since the moment we took over those jobs. And you damn well know it.

Ej: I entered into our agreement in good faith. I wanted it to work.

Chad: No, you didn’T. You’ve been planning this from the get-go. I’m backing johnny so you’re making your move.

Ej: I have a hard time trusting people who betray me.

Chad: I believe in johnny, I’m supporting him. And this is your way of paying me back. Just be a man and call it what it is.

Ej: Don’t tell me, you’re serious about running dimera. I just heard you talking about acting in a student movie. You don’t have time for side jobs.

Abigail: Okay, look. You took time to act as xander cook’s attorney. What was that? Pro bono work?

Ej: What I do is none of your business.

Chad: Okay.

Abigail: You know darn well that he has all the time in the world to be in johnny’s movie in his spare time and still put in a full day at dimera.

Ej: No, I don’t think shin will concur. As a matter of fact, I’ll call him now, sound him out about chad’s new gig.

Chad: I mean, I don’t–I don’t even–i don’t even have the part, and you just drooling over the thought of dumping me.

Ej: You never should have undermined me with my son.

Johnny: So you closed the bakery and came here, huh?

Allie: Yeah, I did. You have a problem with that?

Johnny: I just thought you were going home to learn your lines.

Allie: Well, I called nicole, and she said henry was already asleep, so i figured I’d come see grandpa and get some dinner.

Johnny: So grandpa’s still here?

Allie: Yeah, he’s in the back.

Johnny: Oh, good. I need to talk to him.

Allie: Before you do, you should know that grandpa john was here, and he saw my script. He knows the movie’s about grandma marlena now, and he’s flipping out.

Johnny: Oh, man. He was–he was really pissed?

Allie: Yeah. He’s gonna tell grandma that she shouldn’t give you the right to make the movie.

Johnny: But I will convince her that she should, that I can tell her story.

Roman: It won’t make much difference.

Johnny: What do you mean?

Roman: Look, I saw it john, saw his reaction when he looked at your script, and it got me thinking. And, johnny, I can’t in good conscience invest in your movie anymore.

John: All right, now, doctor, I want you to try to get some sleep, and I’m sure you’re gonna feel a lot better in the morning. Okay?

Marlena: Yeah. I’m just still so worried about ben.

John: Have you figured out why yet?

Marlena: No, just a–just a gut feeling.

John: Well, I think I might know what’s going on here.

Marlena: Well, I wish I did.

John: I think that you were just obsessed with ben, because you tried so damn hard to help doug, and you couldn’T.

Marlena: Yeah, I-I try so hard. I-I-I just wanted to get through to doug. I want–and then I–I feel awful about trying to convince julie to let me commit him to bayview.

John: Hey, after what he did to her, you didn’t have a choice. Now, I know you, sweetheart, and I know that you–you always want to try to help everybody, especially those people you love, and–and then, you know, you’ve done a really good job with ben, but you don’t need to talk to him tonight. Tonight you just need to take care of yourself. Okay?

Marlena: Yeah.

John: Okay.

Marlena: Okay, yeah, I’m– I’m–I’m sure ben will be fine. It can wait till tomorrow.

Ciara: What do you think?

Ben: I think we should have been making babies a long time ago. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Chad: So should we try the scene again?

Abigail: Aren’t you worried about ej getting to shin?

Chad: Ej, no. I don’t care what ej says. I’ve been killing it at the office. And I don’t see shin making any changes. Not–not with the way profits are. So should we take it from the top?

Abigail: I’m tired. I think I’ve rehearsed enough for today.

Chad: What? What are you talking about? We’re just–we’re just getting to the good part.

Abigail: Uh-huh. I just wanna go upstairs. I’m gonna check on the kids, and I’m going to take a very long, hot bath.

Chad: Well, why don’t we– why don’t we check on the kids together. And then I can–I can escort you to your room because I wouldn’t want you running into any–any dangerous creatures in the hallway, especially ones with plummy british accents.

Abigail: Hmm. You’re very protective.

Chad: Yeah.

Abigail: But that sounds nice.

Johnny: Oh, come on, grandpa. You can’t do this to me. I’m counting on you.

Roman: Yeah, I know. Look, I feel bad about breaking my word, okay? But admit it, you pulled a bait and switch on me. And it’s not fair, and it’s not right. And this new story of yours, I don’t think you get what a really bad idea this is.

Johnny: Oh, man.

Roman: Johnny, you can’t just be about what you want. This movie can mess people’s lives up, people you love, people you care about.

Johnny: Thank you for trying to help me.

Roman: All right, listen. I gotta run. Make sure nobody robs the place.

Allie: We’ll keep an eye out.

Roman: See you later.

Chanel: I am so sorry, G.

Johnny: I mean what the hell am I supposed to do now? I’ve tapped every investor I can think of.

Allie: Any way you could crowd source the rest of the money?

Johnny: That could take forever. Damn it.

Chanel: Hey, why don’t we just order some food and then we can brainstorm over dinner.

Johnny: I’m not hungry anymore. You mind if we take a rain check? I–I just need to think this thing through on my own. I’m really sorry.

Chanel: I understand. We’re gonna figure this out.

Johnny: I hope so. See ya.

Chanel: Poor guy. I’ve never seen him like that.

Allie: I have. But we were little kids.

Marlena: Ooh, goodness. Do feel kind of worn out. Maybe I could turn off those thoughts that keep going through my head.

John: Thoughts? What kinda–what kinda thoughts?

Marlena: Just thoughts– thoughts about my patients.

John: Hey, hey, hey. Maybe this gizmo over here will help. Want me to turn it on?

Marlena: What–what is that?

John: Why, this is called a white sound machine. Comes highly recommended by abraham carver. Paulina brought one up from miami; it puts abe to sleep just like that.

Marlena: Well, okay. Let’s hope it works.

John: Yeah, that and maybe a cup of hot chamomile tea?

Marlena: Aw, that’d be nice. Thank you.

John: All right, now you just close your eyes, and I will be right back. Okay.

[Eerie music]

Demon marlena: Listen to your husband, marlena. Forget all about ben weston.


Johnny: [Scoffs]

Ej: Something wrong?

Johnny: Oh, you’ll love this, yeah. Grandpa roman doesn’t wanna put money in the movie anymore. So my dream project is over before it ever even got started.

Ej: If you’re expecting me to gloat, it’s not going to happen. What if I offered to cover roman’s investment?

Johnny: Okay, but what’s the catch? ‘Cause I know there is one.

Ej: You’re right.

Chad: Can we do this every night? Check on thomas and charlotte together?

Abigail: I would love that. Yeah. Were you really serious about wanting to play john? Or you just trying to get in ej’s face?

Chad: Maybe a little bit of both. But what I wanna–when I started to talk about the two of us doing it together, I started to really like the idea.

Abigail: Why?

Chad: It just seems like it would be a fun adventure for us to go through together. And I wouldn’t have to worry about you doing some sex scenes with some random guy.

Johnny: I’m not going to work at dimera enterprises. I would rather wait tables at the pub.

Ej: That’s not my condition. You’ve made yourself clear.

Johnny: Stop playing games, dad. What do you want?

Ej: What I want is to play john black.

John: Yeah, hold on a second. Hey, roman.

Roman: Hey, hey, sorry for coming by so late without calling first, but I wanted to let you know. I told johnny I won’t help fund his film.

John: Nice. Thanks, roman. I know that it wasn’t easy.

Roman: No it wasn’t, but your right. The last thing we want is for marlena to have to relive that time.

Marlena: Ben, have to warn ben.

[Wind whooshing]

Demon marlena: Let it go, marlena. Leave ben to me. Stop fighting. Give in to me.

Ciara: Was that just me or did that feel different? Like extra special?

Ben: It was definitely not just you.

Ciara: I didn’t think it was.

Ben: Mm-mm.

Ciara: And that kinda has me wondering.

Ben: Oh, yeah? What are you wondering, my love?

Ciara: I’m wondering if we just made a baby.


[Wind whooshing]

[Tense music]

Demon marlena: Just let go, marlena. Give in to me. Give in to me. Give in to me to me…to me… to me…to me…to me…to me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Chanel: That was a day.

Allie: And a half. I can’t believe we sold out everything in the bakery.

Chanel: I feel like I barely even had a chance to breathe. I didn’t even get a chance to ask you how your date was.

Allie: It was fine, but how about you? What did you end up doing last night?

Chanel: You know, it turns out it was good I didn’t go out with you guys, because I was involved in a surprise engagement.

Allie: What? You and my brother got engaged?

Johnny: Hey, just the person I was looking for.

Abigail: Oh, really? Good reason or bad reason?

Johnny: Good.

Abigail: Okay. Another script.

Johnny: You can tear up the old one. That is the rewrite. Hot off the press.

Abigail: Okay, and so you said this one focuses mainly on your grandmother being possessed by the–

Johnny: It’s okay. You can say it. You’re gonna have to live it when you play her in the movie.

Abigail: You wrote another script that fast?

Johnny: Yeah. I was working on it all night, but I gotta tell you that thing practically wrote itself. I guess you could say the devil was my muse.

Abigail: Hmm.

Kayla: [Laughs] How did you know that’s what I needed?

Roman: Lucky guess. Nothing does the trick like mom’s cure-all.

Kayla: I wish it could cure everything.

Roman: What’s going on?

Kayla: I just came from committing doug to bayview for evaluation.

Roman: How’d that go?

Kayla: He was extremely upset and was insisting that he didn’t belong there. And he just kept asking for julie, over and over again.

Ciara: I think that I’m more ready to start a family than ben is.

Julie: He doesn’t want children?

Ciara: Oh, he does. It’s just he has his own issues to work through, before he can fully commit.

Julie: Considering his family history and his own, that makes sense.

Ciara: Yeah, he’s actually at a session with marlena right now, mm-hmm. Hopefully, she can help him work through those feelings. There is no one I trust more than marlena.

Julie: As do I. I know she’s going to help my doug and help your ben too. I have complete faith in marlena. And you should too.

Marlena: I’m sorry, ben.

Ben: It’s okay, and thank you again for making the time to see me.

Devil: Don’t let him go, marlena. You need to convince ben weston that he and his wife must have this baby. Don’t let me down, marlena, or there will be a steep price to pay.

[Echoing] Pay, pay.

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

[Soft orchestration]


Allie: Why didn’t you tell me you were engaged? I mean, where’s the ring?

Chanel: [Laughs] Relax, horton. I am not engaged to your brother after three dates.

Allie: Oh, okay, well, you said you were involved in a surprise engagement, so what’s the engagement?

Chanel: Abe proposed to my mom last night.

Allie: Oh! Well, that’s great.

Chanel: And the best part is she said yes.

Allie: Well, lucky uncle abe. Your mom is a total catch.

Chanel: Hell yeah she is, and it was a really romantic night all around.

Allie: Okay, well, if you’re talking about my brother now, I don’t really need the gory details.

Chanel: It would only be gory if he was a lousy singer.

Allie: No, please do not tell me that my brother brought out his guitar and “serenaded” you.

Chanel: Yeah, he sure did.

Allie: Oh, my god.

Chanel: He was “wooing” me. His words.

Allie: I told you he was a player.

Chanel: Well, if he is, then so far he’s playing it exactly right.

Abigail: You changed the name of the movie, I see.

Johnny: I had to. It’s not the sami brady story any more.

Abigail: Did you tell your mom? ‘Cause she’s not gonna be happy.

Johnny: She is not even returning my texts or my calls, so she doesn’t get a say. But you do, and so does chad. I want you both to read over this. Please let me know if you have any questions, if any of the dialogue feels unnatural. I want you to be brutally honest, okay?

Abigail: You’re sure about that?

Johnny: Of course. It’s a collaborative film, and I appreciate you guys believing in my vision.

Abigail: Aww. Thank you. I really appreciate the opportunity.

Johnny: So you’re excited?

Abigail: I am, yeah. After these last few crazy months, I can’t believe how much I’m looking forward to it.

Johnny: Well, I will leave you to it, and maybe… read it with the lights on.

Abigail: “Possessed: The marlena evans story.”

[Eerie music]


Devil: Are you listening to me, marlena? You need to stop him. Now.

Ben: Dr. Evans, you all right?

Marlena: You didn’t hear that?

Ben: Hear what?

Devil: Ben can’t hear me, doc. I have a direct line right into your head. And more importantly, your soul.

Ben: Dr. Evans, what did you hear?

[Eerie music]


Marlena: A sound. Outside. It must have been something outside. Nothing–it’s nothing.

Ben: What did it sound like?

Devil: You need to change his mind, marlena. Tell him right now. Tell him to have this baby. If you don’t, I’ll have to pay a visit to poor, vulnerable doug.

Marlena: Well, I don’t–

Ben: Dr. Evans, are you sure you’re all right?

Marlena: Um… no, actually I’m not feeling very well at all.

Ben: You know, maybe you should head home. Get some rest. Yeah? You’ll feel better, okay?

Marlena: Wait. You can’t leave. Your mission:

Allie: Please tell me that you recorded my brother singing to you.

Chanel: I did not.

Allie: Damn it. I could have used it for blackmail.

Chanel: It was a very lovely, private moment.

Allie: A lovely, private, cringey moment. I’m sure my brother couldn’t be cheesier if he tried.

Johnny: I bet I can.

Chanel: Hey, you.

Johnny: Hey.

Allie: Heart-shaped chocolates? You know she’s a baker, right?

Johnny: They’re chocolate-covered mixed nuts.

Chanel: My favorite. You’re good. He’s good.

Abigail: Oh!

Chad: Sorry, sorry, sorry.

Abigail: [Laughs] Oh, my gosh. I did not…

Chad: Sorry.

Abigail: Hear you come in. I was so caught up in the script.

Chad: How many times you read that thing?

Abigail: This is a totally new version. Johnny practically started over. He wants us to read it and give him some feedback.

Chad: Okay. It sounds like a nice diversion from the day at the office that I had.

Abigail: You weren’t confronted by the devil, were you?

Chad: Not quite. Ej’s not speaking to me.

Abigail: Because of the movie stuff?

Chad: He’ll only communicate to me through our assistants. He’s furious that I’m financing a story about sami’s past.

Abigail: Well, you can’t pull out now. Not only would it break johnny’s heart. I think it’d kind of break mine.

Roman: [Sighs] Damn. It breaks my heart. I mean, I know he was having trouble. Mixing up names. I mean, he did that when he came in the pub, a while back, but damn. It sounds like it’s really getting a lot worse.

Kayla: Well, I think we know better than most that dementia is a degenerative illness. And in doug’s case, it just seems like it’s progressing with alarming rapidity.

Roman: Well, we did get a miracle for mom.

Kayla: Well, it’s gonna take at least that, if not more, for doug to recover.

Julie: You just got married. Your whole life is before you. There’s no rush to have a baby, is there?

Ciara: I guess not. Plenty of people decide not to have kids, right? And good for them. It’s just–I don’t know. I never thought that I would have to make that decision.

Julie: What about adoption? I mean, if ben is so concerned about passing on his genes.

Ciara: Yeah, allie actually asked me about that, but I mean I don’t think we’re the perfect candidates, given ben’s history.

Julie: I understand.

Ciara: And besides, I don’t even think that would address all of his concerns. I think he’s not only afraid of passing down his genes. I think he’s afraid of the kind of parent he’s gonna end up becoming. I think he’s afraid that he’ll turn into clyde.

Ben: Why can’t I leave? Aren’t we finished with our session?

Marlena: We are, but…

Devil: Pull yourself together, marlena. You can do it. You have to do it.

Marlena: I don’t want you going home to ciara and telling her that you can’t have a child.

Ben: Why not?

Marlena: Because–

Devil: Say it, marlena. Say it.

Marlena: Because that would be a terrible mistake. This is the sound of an asthma attack…

Julie: Oh, my darling girl. I hope all your hopes and dreams come true.

Ciara: Thank you, grandma, but right now, I am worried about grandpa and you. I’m just so sorry for what you guys are going through.

Julie: We’ve had a long and exciting life together. I never took a day of it for granted. I have no regrets.

Ciara: But still, I mean you never really think that something like this would happen.

Julie: No. No, you don’T. You can prepare yourself for illness. You can even prepare yourself for that day when one of you has to say goodbye. But I never expected that my darling would want to hurt me or stop loving me.

Ciara: No. He would never stop loving you. No matter how sick he gets, he still loves you, deep down in his soul with all of his heart. And that is one thing that I know for certain. He always will love you.

Kayla: [Sighs] Thank you for the chowder.

Roman: Any time, sis.

Kayla: All right, I’m gonna head over to the hortons and check on julie.

Roman: Okay. Give ’em my love.

Kayla: I will do that. I love you.

Roman: I love you.

Kayla: Hey, john.

John: Hey, kay.

Kayla: How’s marlena feeling?

John: Better. Nowhere near 100%. I tried talking her out of going to work.

Kayla: She went to the hospital?

John: You know doc. Always putting everybody else’s needs first.

Kayla: That she does.

John: Keep an eye on her for me, will you?

Kayla: Of course.

John: Thanks. Appreciate that. Yeah.

Kayla: Take care.

Roman: Hey, john. What can I get for you?

John: Just a couple minutes of your time.

Roman: Always on the menu. What’s up?

John: Johnny tells me that you are thinking about investing in his film.

Roman: Doing more than thinking about it. Told him I would.

John: Well, I’m here to talk you out of it.

Chad: You’re really psyched about doing this movie, huh?

Abigail: I am, yeah. It feels like a new challenge. An opportunity to maybe learn something about salem’s history. And aren’t you excited to be a part of it?

Chad: Yeah. I wouldn’t be investing in it if I didn’t believe in it.

Abigail: So you’re not gonna let ej’s temper tantrum change your mind?

Chad: No, not a chance.

Abigail: Good, because chad–this story–it’s insane. I mean, my part. The things that I get to do. I just hope that I can do justice to everything that marlena went through, really.

Chad: Well, I mean, you–look at me. You have succeeded at everything you’ve ever done, okay? You are gonna be great.

Abigail: Thank you. I think I’m gonna read the words out loud. You know, just to kind of make sure everything flows.

Chad: Yeah, well…

Abigail: You know?

Chad: Why don’t we read it together? I’ll be your scene partner.

Abigail: Really?

Chad: Yeah. Look, I am–I mean I’m no professional.

Abigail: God.

Chad: Okay? But I’m game. You can call me… john black.

Abigail: It’S… father john black. You ready?

Chad: Let’s do it.

Abigail: [Clears throat]

Chad: Fade in.

Chanel: Mmm. I wonder if we can make a cookie that tastes like this. Cashews and dark chocolate.

Allie: No. It’s almost dinnertime.

Johnny: You just cannot admit that I bought something nice for chanel. You know, I’m actually a pretty good boyfriend.

Allie: Okay, well, if you’re here to do more wooing, I’m gonna get going.

Johnny: Ah, hang on. I’m here to woo you too.

Allie: Oh, another script.

Johnny: I know you haven’t committed to the project yet, but there is no way you’ll turn me down after you read this draft. I promise.

Allie: Sorry, buddy, but I’m turning you down right now.

Ben: You’re telling me that it would be a mistake not to bring a baby into this world? Fully knowing that it could possibly be sick, like I was?

Marlena: Ben, you were ill. You’re not ill anymore.

Ben: I understand that, but I also know that it could come back. And I face that possibility every single day, and I know my child could go through that same thing.

Marlena: But the odds are so low.

Ben: They’re not zero.

Marlena: No. No, nothing is really zero. Look, god forbid–

Devil: Don’t bring him into this.

Marlena: Ben… we all have traits we don’t want to pass on to our children. I mean, that’s just part of parenting. It’s part of being human. Look, if your child were to become ill, well, you’d get medical attention. Mental health is the same thing.

Ben: Yeah, but when I was ill it didn’t just make me sick. It caused me to kill people.

Marlena: We didn’t catch it soon enough, but you will be so vigilant with your own child.

Ben: Dr. Evans, there isn’t an amount of vigilance in this world to head off evil. I’m sorry. I-I can’t– I can’t do that.

Devil: Stop him now. You have to.

Marlena: Why?

Ben: What do you mean, “why?” I’m a ganiac, ganiac, check my drawers

Johnny: Allie, come on, please. I need you to play mom.

Allie: Why? The story’s about grandma now.

Johnny: And mom is her daughter. She was about our age when grandma was possessed.

Chanel: Oh, there’s a sentence.

Johnny: Look, mom has some really pivotal scenes. Wait till you read about the moment that she walked in on grandma and grandpa john on top of the titan conference…

Allie: Okay.

Johnny: Table.

Allie: One, ew, and, two, what does it have to do with the possession?

Johnny: The fallout from that affair is the event that pushed mom over the edge. I mean, that’s why she changed aunt belle’s paternity test results, why she kidnapped her. A lot of people say that that was the birth of sami brady as we know her.

Chanel: Your mom did all of that?

Allie: It’s literally just the beginning.

Chanel: So what happened with your grandma, after your mom caught her?

Allie: Well, the truth got out about the affair, and my grandpa roman divorced her.

Johnny: Leaving marlena all alone, vulnerable, and full of shame. And that’s how the devil found his way in.

Roman: Okay. Well, john, I gotta tell you I am not gonna go back on my word to my grandchild.

John: Roman, you know what this film’s about.

Roman: Yeah. Sami’s life.

John: All of our lives. And from what I understand, it’s gonna include the moment that doc and I–

Roman: Cheated on me.

John: Yep.

Roman: John, I came to terms with that a long time ago. Stefano upended all our lives. Marlena fell in love with you when she thought you were me, and after that, as hard as you two tried, you couldn’t stay apart.

Marlena: John. I didn’t think I’d see you tonight.

John: I didn’t expect to see you here, either, especially alone.

Marlena: I’m not. Roman is coming.

John: You know, doc, you couldn’t lie to me when we were married, and you still can’T. God, you look beautiful tonight. Wait please.

Marlena: Don’t do this.

John: Just a minute.

Marlena: Don’T. If you care about me at all, don’t touch me. Not now. Not ever…

Both: Again.

Chad: I guess john didn’t listen.

Abigail: No editorializing. Keep going.

Chad: Sorry.

[Clears throat]

[As john] I talked to carrie, after you left. She felt as though you may be coming down with a little something.

Abigail as marlena: Oh, well, she was wrong.

Chad: Are you sure?

Abigail: Yes, I feel fine.

Chad: All right. Then why aren’t you upstairs at the party with everyone else?

Abigail: I just needed some time by myself.

Chad: Why? Why? I mean, if you’re not ill, why are you here? What are you running away from? If, um–

Abigail: You know, I think maybe that’s enough for one day.

Chad: It’s a little close to home, huh?

Ciara: There we go.

Julie: Enough of this. Cheer me up.

Ciara: Okay.

Julie: Yes. Tell me about your honeymoon. It was in new orleans?

Ciara: Yes, it was.

Julie: So tell me all about the food.

Ciara: Oh, the food! Well, where do I even start? The crawfish. The muffuletta sandwiches. The beignets. Oh, and we even visited oak alley.

Julie: Oh, it’s beautiful, isn’t it? Your mother and father made some wonderful memories there.

Ciara: Yeah, it is beautiful, but it’s changed a lot. The plantation’s had to reckon with its past. Yeah, enslaved workers built the house, planted the oaks, and that is all a part of its legacy.

Julie: It’s important to reexamine the sins of the past. Hard as that is.

Ciara: Yeah. It actually made ben think about how he had to reckon with his own sins.

Julie: This is why he has doubts about having children?

Ciara: Whatever happens, whether we have kids or not, I will respect his decision. I would never want to pressure him into doing something that he doesn’t want to do.

Ben: You’re asking me why I don’t want to risk bringing a bad seed into this world? Dr. Evans, isn’t that answer kind of obvious?

Marlena: I know about your fears, but I’m telling you it’s very, very unlikely.

Ben: But you said earlier–

Marlena: Yes. That it’s possible. Anything is possible. But there’s a very big difference between healthy fear and unhealthy avoidance.

Ben: And you think that’s what this is?

Marlena: I think any child you have is going to grow up in a wonderful and loving home– something you never had. And ciara, she loves you so much. She wants to have a family with you.

Ben: I know that.

Marlena: And if you deny her the chance to be a mother, she’ll accept that… on the surface.

Ben: Well, what do you mean, “on the surface”?

Marlena: Well, when one half of a couple makes a decision that affects them both, there can be a level of resentment.

Ben: So you think ciara would resent me for not wanting to have a kid?

Marlena: I certainly have seen that in my practice. And you know, when there’s that level of resentment it really can damage a marriage.

Ben: So you’re saying?

Marlena: I’m saying go home. Make love to your wife, and see if you can make a baby together. Clerk: Hello, how can I?

Allie: Johnny, I’m not an actress.

Johnny: Neither is abigail, but you have the life experience to play these parts. Nobody knows mom like you do. You know how she acts. You know how she thinks.

Chanel: You do look like her.

Johnny: You would kill this.

Allie: All right, as much as I enjoy you kissing up to me, I just don’t have time. I mean, I’m so busy with the bakery and henry.

Chanel: And tripp.

Johnny: It wouldn’t take that much time. Look, you’re not the star of the movie. We would shoot around your schedule. You make a little money. I’d owe you forever.

Chanel: How can you say “no” to that?

Allie: I thought you were against the movie?

Chanel: Well, I’m just saying it could come in handy to have your twin owe you forever.

Johnny: Think about how much you would enjoy holding that over me.

Chanel: And besides, how can you turn down that face?

Allie: All right, fine. Fine. I will play mom in your movie. I just hope that this does not come back to haunt us.

Roman: John?

John: Hey.

Roman: Where did you just go?

John: Sorry, I just kind of drifted off reminiscing. What do you know about zen?

Marlena: About what?

John: About zen. As in buddhism. It’s very complicated, yet it’s very simple, at the same time. Like the story of the man who wanted to know who buddha was. So he asked him, “are you a god?” And buddha said, “no.” So he asked him, “are you an angel?” And once again, buddha said, “no.” So he said, “you must be a saint.” And for the third time, buddha replied, “no.” So the man said, “what are you?” And buddha looked at him and said, “I am awake.” Well, that’s what the word “buddha” means. Awake. It’s how the whole thing started: With one man who woke up.

Abigail: And you’re right. You know, I was running away from you and my feelings, and just like john said of marlena in the script. But… I’m not doing that anymore.

Chad: If this is too much–

Abigail: No. No, you can keep going.

Chad: Are you sure?

Abigail: Yeah, yeah. Let’s go ahead.

Chad: [Clears throat]

[As john] What do you know about zen?

Abigail as marlena: About what?

Chad: About zen. As in buddhism. It’s very simple, yet very complicated, at the same time.

Julie: Well, ben must be finished with marlena by now, and you should be heading home.

Ciara: Are you sure? I just–I don’t know if you should be alone right now.

Julie: I can be alone, sweetheart. I don’t want you to waste one minute with your precious husband. You’ve lost too much time as it is.

Ciara: All right, as long as you’re sure you’re gonna be okay.

Julie: You know me.

Ciara: Toughest woman I know.

Julie: Runs in the family.

Ciara: Yes, it does. I will be praying for grandpa.

Julie: Thank you, sweetheart.

Ciara: Please let me know when I can visit him.

Julie: Of course.

Ciara: Okay.

Julie: Of course

Ciara: Okay.

Julie: And I hope everything works out for you and ben, and I wish you all the luck in the world, and, oh, you so deserve to be happy. And so does he.

Marlena: What are you waiting for? Go on home.

Ben: This does not sound like you.

Marlena: What do you mean?

Ben: I mean you never tell me what to do. You ask me questions, but then you leave me room to make my own decisions.

Marlena: Yes. I just don’t want you going down the wrong road, you know? Want to stay on the path. I mean you’ve worked so hard to end up with ciara.

Ben: Yeah.

Marlena: So does that clarify everything?

Ben: Yeah. Yeah. Actually, it does, so thank you. Once again, thank you.

Marlena: Yes.

Ben: Get some rest.

Marlena: Yes. You take care.

Ben: Thanks. You too.

[Tense music]


Devil: Good job, marlena. I knew you could do it. On the outside, I looked fine.

Johnny: You don’t have to commit right now, okay? You can go home. Read the script. The scene in the titan conference room is at the very beginning. You don’t even have any lines. You just have to look horrified when you walk in on grandma and grandpa john having sex.

Allie: Yeah, well, that shouldn’t be too hard.

Johnny: I’ll need to see how deeply it hurts: The shock, betrayal. This was a moment that broke mom. Changed her forever, and in this story, it was the inciting incident.

Chanel: The what now?

Johnny: The event that sets everything into motion. It was that carnal sin which invited the devil into salem. There wouldn’t be a story without it.

Abigail as marlena: Why are you telling me that story?

Chad as john: Because that’s how I feel when I’m with you. And no one on this earth and nothing else–

John: Nothing and nobody on this earth makes me feel that way.

Marlena: Don’t do this to me.

John: Oh, god. I know you want to go, and I’m not gonna stop you, but please, there is one thing I need to say, all right? You know what I was going through when isabella died. How I was walking around like a zombie. I was dead inside, until that night on the plane when you and I made love. You gave me life again, doc. And if nothing more comes out of this, I just want to say thank you. One fateful night changed everything. For me. For you. Sami. Marlena. Now here we are, having that part of our lives recreated on the big screen?

Roman: And you’re worried that it’s all gonna bring it rushing back?

John: Well, aren’t you? Come on, man. We’ve worked so hard to put all this behind us here. We don’t know what’s gonna happen, if we open that door.

Roman: Well… you know what? Could be a good thing. Final catharsis. If I’m okay with it, why shouldn’t you be?

John: It’s not about the affair, roman. It’s about marlena being possessed by the devil.

Devil: Brilliantly played, marlena. Using ben’s own love for ciara as a weapon against him? You did me proud.

[Recorder beeps] You think you can get rid of me by shutting off the recorder? After all these years, you should know you can never get rid of me. My nunormal?

Johnny: Thank you for helping me convince allie to do the movie.

Chanel: You did the heavy lifting.

Johnny: Hey, I thought you were terrified of this story?

Chanel: Well, I’m still properly afraid of the devil, like any good girl should be, but I see how passionate you are about this story. I know you’re not gonna give up, and I kinda wanted to move the conversation along.

Johnny: Oh? Why is that?

Chanel: So I could be alone with you.

Johnny: And I could demonstrate my passion in a different way?

Chanel: Exactly.

Chad as john: You want me to leave… I’ll walk out that door right now. And as hard as it may be, I’ll stay out of your life, if that’s what you want.

[In normal voice] Abby, what’s wrong?

Abigail: It says they kiss.

Chad: Yeah, I know.

Julie: You have seen doug?

Kayla: Yeah. I have, and I’m afraid that there’s no change. He’s still very upset and confused.

Julie: But I get to visit him tomorrow, right?

Kayla: Well, I think that we should wait till after the first 24 hours. We need to make sure that the doctors think that he’s not a danger to you anymore.

Julie: I hate this, kayla. I feel so helpless. I’m not there to jog his memory. I’m not there to hold his hand. I’m not there to tell him I love him.

Kayla: I know, but hopefully, soon.

Julie: Well, is there anything I can do?

Kayla: Well, you know me. I’m a doctor, but I believe very strongly in the power of prayer.

Julie: So do I, and I’m gonna keep on praying for my husband till my last breath.

John: I tried to convince johnny, “just leave the possession part out of the script.”

Roman: Okay. What is it you’re worried about?

John: Oh, come on, man. Do I even have to say it?

Roman: That it could happen again? That we’re inviting the devil back into our lives.

John: Why take the risk?

Roman: All right, john. Tell you what. Let me talk with johnny, okay? As big a moment as that was in all our lives, sami’s had a lot of big moments. I think johnny can make the movie without that.

John: Thanks.

Allie: Hey, look. It’s a meeting of the grandpas.

Roman: Hey, look who’s here. How’s it going?

Allie: Not great.

John: No? Why not? What’s wrong?

Allie: Well, I can’t believe it, but I just let johnny talk me into playing mom in his stupid movie.

Roman: Wait a minute. Are we looking at the star of the sami brady story?

Allie: No, I am just a supporting character now.

John: How is that even possible?

Allie: Well, johnny totally rewrote the script. It’s a horror movie now. He even changed the title.

Roman: What’s it called now?

Allie: “Possessed: The marlena evans story.”

[Dramatic eerie music]


Marlena: I don’t understand. Why are you doing this?

Devil: Marlena, I told you we had a lot of work to do.

Marlena: What does any of this have to do with ben?

Ben: Well, I am glad that you at least got to be there for julie.

Ciara: Well, I tried. So how did it go with marlena? Did you talk to her about us starting a family?

Ben: Actually, yes, I did.

Ciara: You did? Well, did it make you feel any better?

Ben: It did.

Ciara: Wait, it did?

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: So does that mean…

Ben: If you want to have a baby… let’s have a baby.

Devil: Do you want to know what this has to do with ben? What do you think, marlena? I have big plans for ben weston’s baby. Big plans.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Gentle piano music ]

Liam: And the verdict is?

Hope: Sound asleep.

Liam: And what about douglas? How’s his, “I’m reading until midnight, no matter what campaign?”

Hope: Oh, well, that’s not going according to plan.

Liam: Aw. It always cracks me up to see him in there, just like mouth open snoring away with the lights on and an open book on his chest.

Hope: I know, it’s so adorable. I love this. I love our family and the life that we’ve created.

Liam: I do, too. Which is why I think we need to protect it.

Deacon: Look, if you’re trying to hit on me, I just want to say that–

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, whoa. You’re not interested?

Deacon: I mean, don’t get me wrong, you’re…you’re a very attractive woman for a, you know, psychopath. I’ve been down this road before. I do not want to get thrown over another cliff, so I think I am going to politely say, no, thank you.

Sheila: Shattering my dreams, why don’t you.

Deacon: Okay, there’s no need for sarcasm, all right? You’re the one who said, you need me.

Sheila: It’s because I do, deacon. Almost as much as you need me.

[ Sighs ]

Steffy: You’re home. I thought you were going to be gone all night.

Finn: No, I was laser focused to get back here to you.

Steffy: That’s so nice.

Finn: I mean, I must have set a record churning through sick people.

Steffy: That’s not you. You’re a thorough and caring doctor

Finn: When the patient is drop dead gorgeous, potential wife material. Yeah. Otherwise it’s just kind of…

Steffy: Uh huh. Sure.

Finn: Hey, your dad texted me. He said he was sorry that he missed me. He stopped by?

Steffy: Yeah, actually, he had some gossip.

Finn: Some gossip?

Steffy: Yeah, it turns out sheila isn’t the only unwanted visitor to come back into our lives.

Finn: Uh oh. Who now? Do I know him?

Steffy: No, no, and you definitely don’t want to. He’s not a good guy.

Finn: And does he have ties to your family?

Steffy: Unfortunately, yes, thanks to brooke. Hope’s father is out of prison.

[ Clears throat ]

Hope: Was that you’re not so subtle attempt to bring up my dad?

Liam: Not, not very subtle at all, was it? It’s going to come up eventually. And you did kind of just spring him on us today. I get why you want to give him the benefit of the doubt. I do, but, I feel like it’s my job as your husband, as beth’s father to protect you from people just like deacon, because it’s a pattern, right? You open yourself up to him. He’s going to hurt you. You do it again. He’s going to hurt you again. Because that’s what he does.

Deacon: Just so you know, I got no plans of going back to prison. All right? I’m the textbook example of a fully reformed, productive member of society. Oh, molly? Ching-a-ling. Thank you. No. If whatever you’re pitching here and ain’t the up and up, I don’t want to hear about it.

Sheila: Well, that’s rather presumptuous of you. Don’t you think?

Deacon: Well, you do have a reputation.

Sheila: Oh. A reputation of being the forresters’ favorite target, the one that they have maliciously vilified for years and years is that the reputation you’re talking about?

Deacon: I mean, is it malicious if it’s deserved? I mean, it’s not really just one person either, is it? Although in your defence, I may actually be the forrester’s preferred target. I mean, you kind of got to hand it to them, though, right? I mean, they really can hold a grudge, can’t they? I mean, what was the last thing I ever did to any of them that was bad? Nothing. And they’re all running around with their hair on fire because all I want to do is have a relationship with my daughter.

Sheila: Yeah, but you know what? It’s the same for finn and me. I’m not allowed to have contact with him because of mistakes I made in the past, mistakes that I have apologized for. It’s ridiculous. You know, I’m not going to let the forresters tell me who I can and cannot talk to.

Deacon: Good for you.

Sheila: I deserve a place in my son’s life, as you do hope’S.

Deacon: Look, we deserve it, doesn’t mean we’re going to get it.

Sheila: It’ll happen because we’re going to make it happen. Neither one of us have been too good at this on our own. But if we work together, team up to go after those spiteful, horrible people. Imagine what we could accomplish. Shingles? Oh… you mean bill.

Steffy: It’s remarkable how like balanced and accomplished she is, given that deacon’s her father. Like that could have really messed her up, but thankfully my dad took over the father figure role. And that just shows you like, you and hope, no matter your dna, that doesn’t define you, right? I don’t mean to bring her up or anything, I just–

Finn: It’s okay. I get the correlation.

Steffy: It’s a little bit different for hope. You didn’t know your mom. Hope knew her dad. I mean, he wasn’t involved in her upbringing, but she knew that deacon sharpe was her father. How much he was hated. How how awful he was.

Finn: And now he’s back. He’s out of jail and in her life. I wonder how hope feels about all this.

Hope: I know who my father was and yes, still might be, and I get that you’re worried. But liam, I’m not going to let him take advantage of me or use me, I under–

Liam: Okay, but if he did have a hidden agenda, you wouldn’t know that until it’s too late, right?

Hope: Or, maybe it’s not so hidden. Maybe he genuinely does want to get to know me and actually act like a father, a grandfather. I mean, why do we have to assume the worst of him?

Liam: I just… I think it’s okay to tell some people you’re out of chances. You’re not welcome anymore. Like, okay, your dad, your mom, me. We don’t want deacon in our lives for the same reason none of us want sheila in our lives. Just set aside for a second all the times that deacon has let you down. Right? All the times that he’s abandoned you, put that aside. He’s still a con man, right? He’s blackmailed people. He’s kidnapped people. He just got out of jail for trying to shoot someone. Tell me, you understand why I’m saying the guy should not be a part of our lives.

Deacon: All kidding aside, that was a good pitch, but whatever you’re selling, I’m not buying it.

Sheila: Yeah. Well, you know what? If you have to be sold on a relationship with your daughter, then this partnership is probably a bad idea anyway.

Deacon: Of course, I want a relationship with hope, but aligning myself with you isn’t the way to get it.

Sheila: Yeah, but you’re drunk. You’re not seeing the potential.

Deacon: Oh, potential. You wanna talk about potential? Okay, let’s talk about man-eating dobermans or killer bees or whatever the hell else. I’ve heard the stories.

Sheila: I’ve heard stories about yoU. All those ugly things you did. Reformed, or not, neither one of us can claim to be a saint, and that’s what makes collaborating on this so easy. I realized I might be making a deal with the devil, but you know, the truth is we will find a way to be in our children’s lives. I mean, brooke and ridge, they are not going to let you walk through that door and allow hope to let you into her heart. That’s going to take work. Some strategizing. You need my help, deacon. Like it or not, we need each other. Scoot over.

Sheila: You have to admit it makes sense.

Deacon: Sheila, you’re making my head spin all right?

Sheila: No, your head spinning is not because of me.

Deacon: That’s probably right, which means it’s time to get out of here.

Sheila: Whoa, is that a moth I just saw flying out of there?

Deacon: It’s funny.

Sheila: I can take care of this.

Deacon: I can pay my own bills.

Sheila: Yeah, with what? Your library card?

Deacon: Maybe they’ll let me wash dishes or something.

Sheila: That’s just what they want, they want a drunk back there breaking their dishes.

Deacon: I was drunk. Now, i’m just buzzed.

Sheila: Yeah, buzzed and broke it would seem.

Deacon: Yeah, it seems that way, doesn’t it?

Sheila: I’m gonna take care of this, and I’ll call you a car because you shouldn’t be driving like this. Unless you’re right around here. Can you walk home?

Deacon: Home?

Sheila: Deacon, you’ve got nowhere to go? Okay. Well, you do now. You can come stay with me.

Steffy: Was the shower good?

Finn: Oh, yeah, it was great, thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Steffy: You want to talk about it?

Finn: Talk about what?

Steffy: I don’t know. Just seems like there’s something on your mind.

Finn: I was thinking about hope and her dad. And the way he popped back into her life. And obviously, I can relate.

Steffy: Yeah. Yeah, you can. But with sheila, she showed up uninvited. It’s not the case with deacon. Hope knew her dad was coming.

Finn: Oh, that’s fine. So, does she want a relationship with him?

Steffy: I guess. My dad told me that hope was writing letters to him while he was in prison.

Finn: I can understand why. No matter what he’s done, he’s still her father.

Steffy: A father who disappointed her. He’s hurt the people that she’s cared about. Doesn’t matter if he’s her father. He’s not owed a place in her life. He’s lost that privilege& a long time ago.

Liam: I’m not trying to pick a fight with you, I’m not trying to upset you, I’m just… I’m your husband and I’m worried.

Hope: I know, I know you are. And I appreciate that. But liam? I’m being careful and believe me, I am walking into this with my eyes wide open.

Liam: I know, but I don’t want you to walk into it at all.

[ Baby crying ] I’ll go check on her. Look, all I’m saying is if we want the very best for our family, deacon has to stay away. That’s just he has to be. Before you go there,

Steffy: Even if hope is fantasizing that her father’s changed, that prison reformed him, she’s got kids now. This isn’t about hopE. She needs to think about beth and douglas and do whatever it takes to protect them. She needs to set firm boundaries and keep deacon as far away from the kids and her as possible. Like what I did with sheila. If hope is smart, she’ll realize that applies to deacon as well.

Deacon: Stay with you?

Sheila: Not indefinitely, just until you get on your feet, you know, stay for a few days.

Deacon: You know, the last couple of years in prison, the thing that kept me going, I was thinking that I was going to have a role in hope’s life, and now here I am in a bar, drinking again, drinking with sheila carter. No less. So, if that isn’t something to worry about, I don’t know what is.

Sheila: Did you really expect a different outcome? Did you expect the forresters to suddenly, you know, embrace, you?

Deacon: No, I don’t know. Maybe. I…

Sheila: What are you doing?

Deacon: Calling my daughter.

[ Phone chiming ]

Hope: Hello, dad?

Deacon: Hey, sweetheart. You answered.

Hope: Oh yeah. What’s going on?

Deacon: Look, I don’t want to cause any problems. I just, you know, I just wanted to tell you that I–

Liam: Took a minute, but she’s asleep.

Hope: I’m sorry. I got to go. Goodnight.

Deacon: Okay.

Sheila: Bad cell service?

Deacon: No, she hung up on me.

Sheila: I’ve had the same reaction from finn. But I guarantee you, that’s not what hope wanted. Hey, our kids do care, they do want to know us. It’s just that… you know, steffy and liam, they have so much influence over them. And ridge and brooke too. Who do they think they are? Keeping us from our flesh and blood?

Deacon: They act like, you know, we can’t change or something, you know, that we can’t become better people. I know that I have. Question is, have you?

Sheila: I have.

Deacon: Sheila. Look, I’m sorry, but you know, I just… I just can’t be seen with you. You know, I can’t associate with their enemies.

Sheila: Where are you going?

Deacon: Not to your place.

Sheila: Then, what are you going to do? You gonna sleep on the beach? Under an overpass? Look, I have a safe place to stay. I’ve got money in my wallet. And you clearly don’T. Which means you’re going to get a good meal or two. And I’ve had plenty of this.

Deacon: You have booze?

Sheila: Yeah, I got a decent selection. I’ve got everything at my place that a guy getting out of prison might possibly desire.

Deacon: Yeah, but it comes at a price. I gotta work with you.

Sheila: Look, if we can come together and tell the forresters that they can no longer control us or our children, that’s what we need to do. Look, we have a right to know our children, to know our grandchildren. Doing that on our own, deacon, it’s almost impossible. But doing it together, we can get it done.

Deacon: Two ex-cons pathetically trying to work their way back into their kids lives. What could possibly go wrong? I know I’m going to regret this.

Sheila: No, you’re not. You’re not going to regret being a part of hope’s life. Together, we’re going to make this happen. You do exactly what I say, and we’re going to get our kids back. I promise you. Steffy and the forresters aren’t going to know what hit ’em.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Gentle music ]

Steffy: I love that you came by, dad.

Ridge: Of course.

Steffy: It’s great. You just miss finn.

Ridge: Yeah, is he at the hospital?

Steffy: Yeah, life of a doctor.

Ridge: And what about the kiddies?

Steffy: Kiddies are sleeping, so you’re just going to have to settle for your daughter.

Ridge: Ah, my very happy daughter from the look of it.

Steffy: Yeah. Marriage to finn is the best. It’s amazing. I mean, except for–

Ridge: Except for sheila.

Steffy: Yeah. Just knowing that she’s out there lurking somewhere.

Ridge: Well, she is not the only uninvited guest that showed up out of nowhere.

Brooke: I know deacon is your father, honey. But after everything he’s done.

Hope: Mom, please. I already know how you feel about deacon.

Liam: It’s how you feel about him. I mean, you were writing to him in secret. You weren’t telling anyone. You didn’t even tell me.

Hope: And I hated keeping that from you all, but again, I just didn’t want you to worry.

Brooke: Well, of course we were worried. He showed up here like he had every right to be here.

Hope: Because I invited him. He had gotten out, and I thought…

Liam: You wanted to see your father.

Hope: I understand that he has baggage. But–

Brooke: You want to believe that he’s changed.

[ Polka music ]

Deacon: Uno, dos, tres.

[ Grunts ] Oh! Give me one of these. Hi, how would you like to go to acapulco for the weekend? What?

Sheila: Seriously? She is so not into you.

Deacon: I just got to get my mojo back, that’s all.

Sheila: Do you really think a jailbird is gonna catch–

Deacon: Shut up! Come on, you’re gonna ruin this for me.

Sheila: I’m not ruining it, you are. You need to keep focused on what’s important.

Deacon: I was just focusing on what was important.

Sheila: Talking about you and me. What we both want. We both want the same thing. Time with our children. You know, if there’s a will, there’s a way. That has always been my mantra. I need to know that you feel that way too.

Steffy: What are you talking about?

Ridge: Well, hope asked brooke and me to come down to the cabin.

Steffy: For dinner?

Ridge: No, no dinner. No dinner. I don’t even know where to start. Look, I get hope has this great ability to forgive people, but how do you do that after everything. How do you… how do you let that go? How do you allow someone like that in your home?

Steffy: Allowing who in her home?

Ridge: Her father.

Steffy: Deacon?

Ridge: Uh huh. The bad penny’s turned up once again.

Steffy: You’re kidding!

Ridge: No, I’m not. And there’s more.

Hope: Please understand that I know all about deacon’s history, but he is still my dad.

Liam: Of course, he’s your dad, and we know how you feel about second chances, too. But…

Brooke: Deacon has had chance after chance, and every time he’s hurt you and disappointed you.

Liam: Think about our wedding in italy. Like the guy effectively ruined the whole thing.

Hope: Okay, but that was not his idea, it was bill’s idea. He used him–

Brooke: The point is deacon is untrustworthy. He has proven that over and over again. You can’t let him back into your life.

Hope: Mom, please. Please stop. I understand that you have my best interest at heart, both of you. And I love you for it. But I am going into this with my eyes wide open. I have no illusions about my fatheR.

Deacon: Listen, sheila. Whatever kooky schemes you got cooking up–

Sheila: It is not a scheme. It’s a good idea.

Deacon: Call it whatever you want. I want no part of it.

Sheila: You don’t even know what it is.

Deacon: And you know what? I ain’t interested in finding out either. What are you doing?

Sheila: What are you doing? Walking away from the best opportunity you’re ever gonna have to see your daughter and your granddaughter.& That’s what I’m talking about, deacon. Talking about our children and our grandchildren. How we will refuse to be exercised from their lives by the haughty, high-handed forresters and logans. Excuse me, can I get one more shot here? And it’s on me, all right? Come on, you don’t need to rush off, right? It’s not like you have anywhere to go. You’re certainly not gonna go see hope. Brooke probably has the place surrounded with guard dogs by now.

[ Giggling ] You know, all of that could change if you just hear me out.

Deacon: Thank you. Oh. My plaque psoriasis…

Steffy: Thank you so much for fixing that.

Ridge: Anything I can do to help.

Steffy: Still can’t believe it. Hope contacting deacon in prison. Inviting him into her house. Is he still as smug as usual?

Ridge: Well, not according to him. He says he’s a changed person. He’s completely rehabilitated himself because he owed that to hope.

Steffy: Well, hope didn’t completely write him off even though he was behind bars.

Ridge: No. Her letters gave him life.

Steffy: Oh, please! And hope bought it?

Ridge: Fathers and daughters, right? Special bond.

Steffy: Yeah, but deacon? That man is toxic.

Hope: People do change. They can learn from their mistakes.

Brooke: Your father isn’t one of them.

Hope: Well, I’m talking about now. The present. I mean, do you think that maybe incarcerated, locked away by everything and everyone that meant anything to him might have had an impact?

Liam: Hope, we… we realize that as his daughter, of course you’d want that to be true.

Brooke: More than likely, he’s the same old manipulator and you don’t need him in your life, now or ever.

Deacon: You know, you make a very good tequila.

Molly: Thanks.

Deacon: And molly, right?

Molly: Mm-hmm.

Deacon: So about this boyfriend of yours?

Molly: Big, tough, jealous.

Patron: Excuse me?

Deacon: Okay, but what if I told you–

Molly: Sorry. Duty calls.

Deacon: What the hell’s going on here?

Sheila: You’re out of practice.

Deacon: Out of practice. Watch this. Excuse me. Excuse me? Would you like to go ensenada? Because I know you hate acapulco?

Lady: No, thank you.

Sheila: Pathetic.

Deacon: No, you know what it is? You’re cramping my style, all right? Beat it.

Sheila: Oh no.

Deacon: I mean it. Go.

Sheila: Excuse me. Excuse me? Can I get another drink for my friend?

Deacon: I’m not her friend. I’m not your friend.

Sheila: Well, not yet. I mean, but given how much we have in common, I think that it’s going to be that way one day or–yeah!

Deacon: Well, you’re off your rocker. You know that, right? Just like…

Sheila: Why? Because I want to spend time with my son?

Deacon: Right? Your son. The one that married steffy forrester.

Sheila: Finn. Yes.

Deacon: I’m sorry, finn? As in huckleberry? That’s that’s his name? Oh.

Sheila: It’s short for finnegan, his adoptive parents’ last name.

Deacon: Oh, okay.

Sheila: Now, they were wonderful. They gave him a loving, stable home after I gave finn up shortly after he was born.

Deacon: Well, you sure as hell couldn’t have given him a stable home. That’s for damn sure.

Sheila: Yeah, you’re probably right. I wasn’t in a good place back then. I would not have been a good influence on him. That’s why I stayed away.

Deacon: And you stayed away until you found out that old finny boy was getting hitched to a forrester. Then presto! There you are in the flesh, ready to make it happen.

Sheila: Are you insinuating that I would manipulate a situation?

Deacon: Oh no, no, no, no. I’m not insinuating anything. I’m saying it flat out, you’ve manipulated a situation. It’s like who you are. You know, you’re like the grand poobah of manipulations.

Sheila: Yeah, but it… it really wasn’t like that. No, he’s special. He’s a good man. He’s a doctor. He’s handsome, he’s kind, and he and steffy, they have a beautiful, beautiful baby boy together. My grandson, hayes.

Deacon: Hayes? What’s with these names? Do you want this kid to get bullied? I mean, come on. Wait, wait a second, hayes was… hayes was steffy’s mother’s name before she got…

Sheila: Married. Yeah.

Deacon: And this is– just so I understand this, and this is the one that you pumped a couple of bullets into.

Shiela: Why does everybody have to bring that up? No stop it. Look, I’m not here to talk about taylor. All right? I’m here to talk about my flesh and blood.

Deacon: Right, this is the baby that you gave up for adoption, then became a doctor, went on to marry steffy forrester. So now you’re the grandmother, this kid.

Sheila: I’m not making this up.

Deacon: I mean, you know, I have heard all the sordid stories about, you know, you and how you desperately wanted to become a part of the forrester clan. Son of a– you actually did it. Wow. So, that means that this this pure little innocent baby is half forrester and half you? Oh, wow. I’ll drink to that.

Sheila: And boom, right?

Deacon: Wow.

[ Giggling ] Nice work. My hygienist cleans with a round head.

Steffy: When you think about it, hope’s reaction to deacon is very similar to how finn reacted about sheila. I mean, she’s awful, but she’s–

Ridge: It doesn’t change the fact that she’s his birth mother.

Steffy: Yeah, that’s true. I mean, deacon is a loser. He really is. But he is hope’s father, and she can’t quite shake him, even though she should.

Ridge: Same way that finn needs to shake sheila.

Steffy: And he knows he has to do that for our sake, for our family. I just pray hope comes to that conclusion. Deacon is trouble, and he has no place in hope’s life or beth’S. Just like sheila has no place in finn’s or hayes’.

Hope: I hear everything you are both saying.

Brooke: Good. Because deacon will say all the right things, honey. He is a con man.

Hope: Mom, I understand what you are saying, but I’m a grown woman, and this decision wasn’t made impulsively and I’m entitled to want to try to pursue a relationship with my dad.

Brooke: But this isn’t just about you. This is also about your daughter. He wanted to see beth, remember? And thank god she was out with douglas and donna. But what if deacon comes back tomorrow or the next day or the next?

Liam: Exactly. The bottom line is the guy’s not a good influence.

Brooke: And he’s definitely not the kind of person you want to have around beth, ever. You know, he can’t be in her life. You do know that, don’t you?

Deacon: The next round’s on me, ladies.

Sheila: They are so not into you.

Deacon: How can they not be in the me?

Sheila: Why don’t you focus on what’s important?

Deacon: You mean what’s important to you, this whole con thing you got going on?

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, wait a minute, I’m not the con man here, you are. And for the record, I didn’t come into finn’s life to disrupt it.

Deacon: Oh no, no, no. You just happen to show up out of the blue with the most important moment of his life. He’s marrying steffy forrester. Stephanie’s namesake. Your departed arch rival. No, no, no. I’m not buying this. All right? You were probably putting together this poignant little mother-son scheme for months.

Sheila: It wasn’t like that. It was not a manipulation.

Deacon: Whatever it was, this has been fun. But I got better things to do than sit around and listen to you whine about the forresters.

Sheila: Wait a minute, you were the one that was talking about the forresters. Sitting here having a pity party for yourself because they wouldn’t let you see hope. Look, deacon, like it or not, we have something in common. We both want to see our children and we would be. If the forresters weren’t keeping us from seeing them. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Ridge: Deacon needs to stay away from hope and beth if he cares about them at all. Which, for a minute, I don’T… I don’t think he does. I don’t think he cares about ’em.

Steffy: Sheila doesn’t care about finn, either. If she did, she wouldn’t have revealed to him that she was his birth mother. She knew it was going to create chaos, but that’s what she lives for. Upending lives.

Ridge: Same with this clown. He knew there was going to be fireworks, but it didn’t stop them.

Steffy: That’s why it’s really important for hope and finn to not have any contact with their criminal sick parents. I made it very clear to finn. I’m just praying that liam does the same for hope.

Hope: Mom, I will always protect my little girl and do what’s best for her.

Brooke: Of course you will, honey. Because you’re a wonderful, loving mother. But deacon looks for vulnerabilities in people, and he exploits them. I just want you to be careful.

Liam: That’s all I want. I mean, I’ll admit it, I don’t know everything about your dad because most of it happened before we even met, but, it, it kind of freaked me out that you were secretly corresponding with him.

Brooke: Deacon is dangerous and so is sheila, and they both need to be kept away from their families at all costs.

Deacon: I’m just going to say this once, all right? I don’t want to be a part of whatever it is that you’re suggesting.

Sheila: Why not?

Deacon: Because if I ever want to have a relationship with hope and my granddaughter, I can’t be associating with a sheila-devil like you.

Sheila: A sheila-devil?

Deacon: Truth hurts, sorry.

Sheila: Oh, truth. The truth. Is that what we’re talking about here right now? Why don’t we talk about the true life of a deacon sharpe, huh? Deacon the has-been drunk. Deacon, the ex-con. Deacon, the liar extraordinaire. You know, hanging out with you. It wouldn’t exactly boost my reputation, either.

Deacon: Oh, your reputation. Okay. Listen, next to you, I’m a saint.

Sheila: Okay. Look, let’s just not do this. All right? It’s bad enough that we have the forresters dictating our lives, telling us who we can and can’t see. If you and I start attacking each other, too, I mean, we’re not the problem. Steffy forrester is the problem. My son wants to see me. There’s no way steffy is ever going to let me see finn or hayes.

Deacon: You know, I’m the one who’s getting ganged up on here. Brooke and ridge, liam. You know, they’re triple teaming me. I mean, it’s all sorts of wrong, too, because hope reached out to me first.

Sheila: She reached out to you because she cares about you, deacon. Just like finn cares about me. I really think that if we can reach out to hope and finn and work together on this–

Deacon: Come on, no. We’re not working together, all right? I mean, come on, you’re frigging nuts, lady. We can’t do– look, this has been fun, but I got to go find some action and it’s not here, okay?

Sheila: Whoa. Whoa, whoa. Wait. Come on. Please. We can take down the forresters. I am desperate here. Please, deacon. We can’t do this alone. Together, we can do anything. Anything.

Days Update Tuesday, October 12, 2021

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Johnny and Chanel kiss in the town square. Johnny thanks her again for convincing Allie to be in his movie. Chanel responds that Allie is her best friend so she usually takes her advice. Johnny asks her for one more favor as he has a lot more parts to cast, so he wants to know how Chanel would feel about playing one of the parts.

At the Brady Pub, John and Roman are shocked when Allie informs them that Johnny changed his movie to “Possessed: The Marlena Evans Story”. Roman argues that he told Johnny that he would invest because he said he wanted to make a movie about Sami, but now it’s all about Marlena’s possession. Allie assumes Johnny told them as he thought this movie would be a bigger movie maker. Allie admits that it’s pretty exciting because it’s not every day that somebody gets possessed by the Devil.

Marlena questions the Devil as to what kind of plans he has for Ben’s baby. The Devil responds that he doesn’t want to spoil the surprise but warns that it’s imperative that Ben and Ciara conceive a child. Marlena argues that Ben doesn’t agree and she’s not sure she convinced him to change his mind. The Devil argues that Ben always listens to Marlena, so soon he will have what he’s been wanting for so long.

Ciara asks Ben how it went with Marlena and if he talked to her about them starting a family. Ben confirms that he did. Ciara asks if it made him feel any better. Ben responds that it did. Ciara asks what that means. Ben tells her that if she wants to have a baby, they will have a baby. Ciara asks if he’s serious. Ben knows how important this is to her, which makes it important to him, so he agrees to make a baby. Ciara excitedly kisses him.

Chanel asks if Johnny really wants her to be in his movie. Johnny feels the camera would love her. Chanel admits she always thought acting sounded fun when she was a kid. Chanel asks what role she would play if she agrees to be in it. Johnny thinks he has the perfect role for her.

John declares that Johnny is not going to make this movie. John reminds Allie that he asked her to talk to Johnny and begged her to convince him to stay away from this part of Marlena’s life. Allie swears that she did but he’s stubborn and says this is the movie he has to make, so she doesn’t think anything will stop him. John responds that he just thought of one thing that can.

Marlena doesn’t understand what makes Ben and Ciara’s child so special to the Devil. The Devil brings up the child inheriting the genetics of a serial killer, who murdered three women. He says that Ben was right to be worried about passing on his dark, twisted legacy to his child and that’s where he needs Marlena. Marlena argues there is no such thing as a serial killer gene. The Devil points out that certain genes in the right environment could result in psychopathic behavior, like Ben and Clyde. Marlena argues that Ben and Ciara are not those parents. The Devil tells her to leave it to him as the child will be the perfect instrument of evil. Marlena remarks that he doesn’t know Ben like she does and that Ben despises what he has done and he’s not inherently evil. The Devil insists that the capacity for evil still exists in him like it would in his child.

Ciara can’t believe it and asks if Ben really wants to have the baby now. Ben confirms that he does. Ciara exclaims that he’s made her so happy as she keeps kissing him. Ciara asks what Marlena said to change his mind. Ben mentions that she said half of their baby’s gene pool would be from Ciara’s side, so he can’t be afraid of his side or let that stop them from having a baby. Ben adds that it’s also important to him for them to be parents so he wants to have a baby with her. Ciara tells him that she loves him so much as they kiss.

Chad and Abigail continue reading the script and reach the point where it calls for them to kiss. Abigail says that love making has never been an issue for them but they still have a lot to work out, so she doesn’t want to cloud the issue by being intimate too soon. Chad tells her that it’s acting so it doesn’t have to mean a thing and he won’t turn it in to something that it’s not. Chad says they can kiss but still go upstairs and continue sleeping in separate bedrooms. They joke with each other and then decide to continue reading the script. Chad and Abigail almost kiss, but EJ walks in and questions what’s going on.

Johnny suggests that Chanel play Celeste, who was Stefano’s henchwoman and lover. Chanel questions how she fits in to the story. Johnny explains that Celeste is also a psychic so she was the first person to sense the Devil was in Salem. Chanel asks if she’s the hero of the movie then. Johnny says she should be, but when she tried to warn everybody, no one believed her. Chanel asks what makes him think that she would be the perfect Celeste and guesses that she is black, which Johnny admits but insists that’s not why he thought of her. Johnny adds that Chanel also has a connection to Celeste, since she is Theo’s grandmother. Chanel then questions Johnny wanting her to play her ex-boyfriend’s big mama.

Allie asks how John can stop Johnny. John explains that Johnny never got the rights to Marlena’s story. Allie notes that he said Marlena encouraged him to make the movie. Roman is sure that Marlena didn’t know the movie was about her, like them. John is sure Marlena will stop Johnny from doing this. Roman believes the law will be on Marlena’s side. John decides he’ll go to her office now since she had an appointment with Ben, but he’s sure she’s now alone.

Ciara asks Ben about the dream he told Marlena about. Ben explains that while in New Orleans, he dreamed that they had a son, who killed his babysitter with a necktie. Ciara questions him not telling her about this. Ben says they were on their honeymoon and he didn’t want to burden her. Ben adds that Marlena reassured him today that she’s not even sure his illness is hereditary, but if there is then there is treatment. Ben says they can look for signs and he’s still not 100% but he knows he can live with his fears if it means they start a family together. Ciara comments that it sounds like Marlena gave him some really good advice. Ben confirms that she did but notes that she was a little different though. Ben explains that usually Marlena doesn’t tell him what to do and lets him make his own decisions, but today she made it seem like he would be making a huge mistake if he decided to never have kids, like she really wanted him to listen to her. Ben adds that it was almost like Marlena had a personal stake in them having a baby…

Marlena tells the Devil that even if Ben and Ciara’s child was predisposed to evil behavior, it doesn’t mean that would ever surface because they would raise their child in a kind and loving environment. The Devil argues that Ben was conditioned by Clyde to become the Necktie Killer, so Ben couldn’t escape the evil that Clyde put inside him. The Devil says he chose Ben very carefully. Marlena argues that Ciara would be the mother and comes from the Bradys and Hortons. The Devil says there will be a struggle but that’s what makes this all so perfect.

EJ says he just came down for a night cap and tells Chad and Abigail to feel free to continue with their reconciliation, as he pours a drink. Abigail explains that they were just reading a scene from Johnny’s movie, so they were pretending to be John and Marlena. EJ asks if it’s not enough to fund Johnny’s project. Chad says he was helping his wife with her lines like a supportive husband. Abigail points out that the role of John hasn’t been cast yet. Chad jokes that maybe he should audition since it’d be a real kick to act with his wife in his nephew’s movie.

Chanel tells Johnny that she’s heard enough if he wants her to play Theo’s granny. Johnny explains that she’d be playing her as a young woman, not a granny. Johnny adds that she could always play her daughter, Lexie instead, but it’s a smaller role. Chanel questions her only options being Theo’s mother or grandmother. Johnny argues that Allie is playing their mother so it’s not that strange. Chanel feels Theo would think it’s strange. Johnny asks if she’s turning him down then. Chanel responds that she’s going to have to think about it.

Ciara knows it wasn’t easy for Ben to change his mind and that he did it mostly for her, so she has to ask if he’s sure this is what he really wants. Ciara says as much as she wants to have a baby with him, she doesn’t want him to think he has to because he owes her or something. Ben tells her how much he loves her and if he wasn’t scared of what his genes might do to their baby, then he would’ve been on board from the start. Ben assures he’s not doing it just because she wants it and that Marlena made him feel a lot better about the whole idea so he can’t wait to make a baby with her. Ciara says she can’t wait either. Ciara asks if they should take the first step by getting rid of her birth control pills. Ben tells her to go for it so she dumps them in the trash.

The Devil tells Marlena that Ben and Ciara’s bloodlines are the perfect combination for having enormous potential for evil but also a pure and innocent soul that can be easily corrupted. He says it’s what he’s been wanting for so long. Marlena asks what that means. Marlena complains that he forced her to persuade Ben to have this child and now he’s saying he had plans for the baby all along. The Devil says that Ben becoming Marlena’s patient was like the stars aligning. Marlena refuses to let him use Ben. Marlena grabs her phone, saying she’s going to warn Ben. The Devil tells her not to so Marlena tells him to try to stop her, but John knocks on the door and interrupts her. John comes in and notes that Marlena is alone but he could swear he heard another voice…

EJ accuses Chad of trying to get under his skin, while Chad says EJ thinks everything is about him. Chad thinks he and Abigail playing a married couple who have problems could be good for them. Abigail admits she never thought of it that way. EJ asks when Chad will do his job at DiMera. Chad insists he can do both. EJ argues that they are supposed to be sharing the position of CEO but he’s the only one putting in long hours. Chad remarks that he can’t help if he’s better at time management. EJ thinks Chad is not pulling his weight and if he expresses that concern to Mr. Shin, he thinks he will agree.

Johnny pleads with Chanel to play Celeste. Chanel suggests he stop playing director and woo her more then. Johnny mentions leaving his guitar at home but suggests they go back to his room. Chanel gives him a hard time but says she wouldn’t be opposed to him taking her to dinner. Johnny brings up that EJ has cut him off financially but they could go to the Brady Pub where he could talk Roman in to a free meal. Chanel asks if he thinks he can just charm his way through the world. Johnny remarks that he usually can. Chanel and Johnny then walk off together.

John thought Marlena might still be in her session with Ben and asks if she was on the phone with him. Marlena claims she was just listening to the recording of their session. John asks how it went. Marlena says for some reason, she thinks she might have led him down the wrong path so she thinks she needs to talk to him. John questions doing that now. Marlena thinks it shouldn’t wait but John doesn’t think it’s a good idea since she’s more pale now than when she left the house. John asks what is going on that has her upset. Marlena claims it was a very emotional session and she thinks Ben still needs her. John knows how dedicated she is to her patients but right now, he tells her to shut it down so he can take her home and she can talk to Ben tomorrow. Marlena tries to argue but John says he’s not taking no for an answer, so Marlena exits her office with John.

Ben asks Ciara how soon after she stops taking the pill will she get pregnant. Ciara decides to look it up on her computer and finds out that she can get pregnant immediately or it could take up to a year, so that doesn’t narrow it down. Ciara adds that it also says it’s rare but it does happen right away. Ben suggests now is a good time as they start kissing.

Chad tells EJ that he wants to work harder but that EJ has been inching him out of the process since the moment they took over the job. EJ claims he entered their agreement in good faith and wanted it to work out. Chad disagrees and argues that EJ has been planning this all along. Chad says he’s funding Johnny’s movie, so EJ is making his move. EJ remarks that he has a hard time trusting people who betray him. Chad says he believes in Johnny and is supporting him, so this is EJ’s way of paying him back. EJ mocks that he’s not serious about running DiMera if he’s acting in a stupid movie and he doesn’t have time for side jobs. Abigail points out that EJ just worked a side job as Xander’s attorney. EJ responds that what he does is none of her business. Abigail argues that EJ knows Chad has all the time to be in Johnny’s movie and still put in a full day at DiMera. EJ doesn’t think Mr. Shin will agree and says he’ll call him now. Chad points out that he doesn’t even have the part in the movie yet and EJ is just drooling at the chance to dump him. EJ warns that he never should’ve undermined him with his son as he then exits the room.

Johnny and Chanel go to the Brady Pub where they find Allie. Johnny questions her closing the bakery and coming here instead of going home to learn her lines. Allie explains that she called Nicole and she said Henry was already asleep so she came to see Roman and get some dinner. Johnny asks if Roman is still there. Allie tells him that he’s in the back. Johnny mentions needing to talk to him. Allie advises him that John was there earlier and saw her script so he knows the movie is about Marlena now and he’s flipping out. Allie adds that John is going to tell Marlena not to give him the rights. Johnny insists that he will convince her. Roman comes over and says that won’t make much difference as he saw John’s reaction to the script, so he can’t in good conscience invest in his movie anymore.

John puts Marlena in bed, encouraging that she will feel a lot better in the morning. Marlena says she’s still just so worried about Ben. John asks if she’s figured out why yet. Marlena calls it a gut feeling. John thinks he might know what’s going on here. Marlena wishes she did. John thinks she’s just obsessed with Ben because she tried so hard to help Doug and she couldn’t. Marlena talks about just wanting to get through to Doug and then she feels awful about trying to convince Julie to let her commit him to Bayview. John says she didn’t have a choice. John knows Marlena always wants to try to help everybody and says she’s done a really good job with Ben, but she doesn’t need to talk to him tonight as tonight she just needs to take care of herself. Marlena agrees that it will be fine and can wait until tomorrow.

Ben lights candles around the bed as Ciara changes in to her night gown. Ben looks at her and says they should’ve been making babies a long time ago as they kiss onto the bed.

Chad asks Abigail if they should try the scene again. Abigail asks if he’s not worried about EJ getting to Mr. Shin. Chad doesn’t care what EJ says since he’s been killing it at the office, so he doesn’t see Mr. Shin making changes with the way profits are. Chad then asks if they should resume but Abigail says she’s tired and thinks she’s rehearsed enough for the day. Chad feels they were just getting to the good part. Abigail decides to head upstairs, check on the kids, and then take a long hot bath. Chad offers to check on the kids together and then walk her to her room. Abigail admits that sounds nice so they exit together.

Johnny argues that Roman can’t do this to him when he’s counting on him. Roman admits he feels bad about breaking his word but argues that Johnny pulled a bait and switch on him which is not fair or right. Roman doesn’t think Johnny gets what a really bad idea this story is. Roman complains that it can’t just be about what he wants since this movie could mess people’s lives up. Johnny thanks him for trying to help him. Roman says he has to run and then exits. Chanel tells Johnny that she’s so sorry. Johnny questions what the hell he’s supposed to do now that he’s tapped every investor he could think of. Allie suggests crowd sourcing but Johnny worries that would take forever. Chanel suggests they order food and brainstorm over dinner but Johnny is no longer hungry and says he just needs to think this through on his own. Johnny tells Chanel that he’s really sorry. She says she understands and assures they will figure this out. Johnny then exits the Pub. Chanel comments on never seeing Johnny like that. Allie recalls when they were kids.

Marlena admits to John that she does feel kind of worn out and wants to turn off the thoughts going through her head about her patients. John offers to turn on a white sound machine that Abe recommended. Marlena agrees to try it. John offers her a cup of hot tea and kisses her. John turns on the machine and tells her to just close her eyes while he goes to get her tea. As Marlena lays down, the Devil’s voice comes through the machine, urging Marlena to listen to John and forget all about Ben.

Ben and Ciara continue kissing and have sex in bed.

Johnny goes home to the DiMera Mansion, looking upset. He finds Abigail’s copy of the script on the couch and tosses it across the room as EJ walks in and asks if something is wrong. Johnny complains that EJ will love it but Roman doesn’t want to fund his movie anymore, so his dream project is over before it ever even got started. EJ tells him that he won’t gloat. EJ then asks what if he offered to cover Roman’s investment. Johnny asks what the catch is because he knows there is one. EJ tells him that he’s right.

Chad walks Abigail to her room and suggests they check on the kids together every night which Abigail says she would love. Abigail asks if Chad was really serious about playing John in the movie or if he was just trying to get in EJ’s face. Chad admits it may have been a little bit of both, but when he started talking about them doing it together, he started really liking the idea because it seems like it would be a fun adventure for them to go through together and he wouldn’t have to worry about her doing sex scenes with some random guy.

Johnny yells at EJ that he’s not going to work at DiMera Enterprises as he would rather wait tables at the Brady Pub. EJ says that’s not his condition as he made himself clear. Johnny tells him to stop playing games and asks what he wants. EJ then reveals that he wants to play John in the movie.

While John is making Marlena’s tea, Roman shows up at the door and informs him that he told Johnny that he will not help fund his family. John thanks Roman and knows it wasn’t easy. Roman agrees that the last thing they want is for Marlena to have to relive that time.

Marlena lays in bed and whispers to herself that she needs to warn Ben. The Devil’s voice comes through the white noise machine, telling Marlena to let it go, leave Ben to him, and stop fighting.

Ben and Ciara lay in bed together after having sex. Ciara felt like it felt extra special which Ben agrees with. Ciara wonders if they just made a baby. Their window then suddenly blows open and all of their things start to blow across their room, leaving them confused.

The Devil urges Marlena to let go and give in to him. Marlena then begins levitating above her bed.
