[Monitor beeping]

[Dramatic music]

TR: You looking for this? Don’t worry, lani. I’m not gonna hurt you. You’re my daughter. I love you… even though you shot me for no damn good reason.

Lani: You shot my husband in the head. You were about to hurt paulina, and you attacked my father.

TR: That’s not true.

Lani: He was unconscious!

TR: I mean it’s not true that abe carver is your father. I am, lani. You are my blood. And you shot me dead. How can you murder your own daddy?

Lani: No! [Gasps]

Eli: Lani. What is it?

Paulina: What have you done?

[Monitor beeping]

TR: Look, I don’t blame you for feeling that way. I mean, the way I treated you, it… it was unforgivable. I’m truly sorry.

Paulina: You’re what?

TR: You heard me. But I don’t expect you to forgive me. And I know this might just sound like words to you, but I’m not that man anymore. You are the love of my life.

And I was hoping that you might do me the honor of becoming my wife.

Paulina: You haven’t changed at all, have you, ray? You’re still the same lying violent dog you always were!

TR: You don’t know what you’re talking about.

Paulina: Give me back my damn phone. Give me my phone! Give me my–

TR: Get off of me, woman! You better get away from me!

Paulina: You’re gonna hit me? Oh, you’re gonna hit me? Go ahead. Go ahead! I’m not that scared little girl you used to beat up on, not anymore. I’m not afraid of you. Go ahead, you coward!

Lani: You son of a bitch.

TR: Lani. Baby, I can explain.

Rafe: Hey. Long night… for both of us. Thought you could use that… ’cause I… I have some questions about the shooting of tr coates.

Nicole: Chloe, it has been such a horrible night. I mean, between almost losing allie to the devil and–and tr coates being shot, I mean, rafe has been at the station almost all night. So I’m gonna take the day off and spoil him a little.

[Knock at door] I think that’s rafe. Okay, got to go. Bye.

[Cell phone beeps] Finally. I have been waiting all night to make love to you…

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

[Soft orchestration]

Nicole: I thought you were rafe.

Eric: I kind of got that.

Nicole: I’m sorry.

Eric: No, it’s okay. I should’ve called first. I just wanted to check on allie, see how she’s doing.

Nicole: She is surrounded by people who love her, and we’re gonna take really good care of her. Come in. In fact, she’s, um, with lucas. They took henry to the park…

Eric: Mm.

Nicole: To feed the ducks.

Eric: Mm. Remember when we used to do that with holly? How–how is she?

Nicole: Oh, she’s still processing what happened between us, but she’s doing much better now. I know she’d love to see you. Maybe you can come back this afternoon?

Eric: I can’T. I’m, uh–I’m leaving salem.

Xander: What are we gonna tell sarah?

Maggie: Well, how about the truth? You know, every time I try to bring it up in the car, you cut me off, wouldn’t let me get in a word. And then you let sarah rush up to the nursery without saying a word. What could you possibly be thinking?

Xander: [Sighs]

Sarah: The baby’s room is empty. Where’s mickey? Where could she be?

Steve: Abraham.

Abe: Hey. Steve.

Steve: Looking good, dude.

Abe: Thank you. Well…

Steve: How you feeling?

Abe: I’m ready to get the hell out of here.

Steve: Oh, yeah.

Abe: How’s tripp?

Steve: Well, thanks to the devil, my son almost lost his life saving allie’S. Kayla actually had pronounced him dead.

Abe: My god.

Steve: But then…

[Sighs] Well, let’s just say we got our miracle. Tripp came back to us. He’s gonna be just fine.

Abe: Oh, that is wonderful news.

Steve: Yeah, the best. And ava’s there with him. She’s pretty much refusing to leave his side, so I thought I would come by, see if you’re doing okay.

Abe: Yeah, aside from the nasty bump. But as you know, I’m pretty hardheaded. But I am concerned about paulina.

Rafe: When you were arrested, you said you weren’t gonna answer any questions without your lawyer present. If you still feel that way, I am happy to call your attorney and get him down here before we talk.

Paulina: No, I’m okay. I have nothing to hide.

Rafe: Okay, then. All right, I’m just gonna need you to sign this… waiver to counsel before we start, yeah?

Paulina: Uh… of course.

Rafe: All right, then… let’s get started.

[Device beeps] Why don’t you start by telling me what happened the night that, uh, tr was shot?

Paulina: [Sighs] Uh… tr came over and talked me into going away with him, and when I got back into the living room, after I had packed, I– I heard a noise. And, uh, I found abe lying on the floor. He was hurt, unconscious, bleeding. I wanted to call for help, but tr wouldn’t let me. And, uh, he grabbed my phone. I tried to grab it back from him. And then he raised his arm like he was gonna hit me. And I vowed a very long time ago that I was never gonna let him hurt me again.

Rafe: Then what happened?

Paulina: Well, you know the answer to that. I shot the son of a bitch.

Rafe: Okay. This was recovered… at the scene, this weapon. Can you confirm that this is the weapon you used to shoot tr coates?

Paulina: Uh… yes, yes, it is.

Rafe: That’s lani’s service weapon. So can you explain to me how a cop’s gun ended up in your hand to shoot the shot that killed a man?

Lani: Um…

[Monitor beeping] I had a bad dream about ray.

Eli: Baby, I-I’m sorry. I don’t like to speak ill about the dead, but that man was a nightmare when he was alive.

Lani: He was. And he… he came so close to killing you, eli. And when I walked into paulina’s apartment, I… um…

Eli: Lani. You still haven’t told me what went down at paulina’s, except that paulina said that she shot tr.

Paulina: Go ahead, you coward!

Lani: You son of a bitch.

TR: Lani, baby, I can explain!

Eli: So? Lani, what happened? Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Abe: I heard you came into paulina’s apartment right after tr was shot.

Steve: I did. You on the floor, tr dead… I got to say, I’ve been wondering exactly what happened before I got there.

Abe: What did lani and paulina tell you?

Steve: Well, paulina said she shot coates. But I’m just not clear on how that happened.

Abe: What do you mean?

Steve: Well, apparently she used lani’s gun. How did she get her hands on a service weapon?

Paulina: [Stammers] I’m sorry. With all that’s happened, I’m getting ahead of myself. Rushed straight to the part about tr getting shot.

Rafe: That’s okay. Take your time.

Paulina: Uh… tr was about to hit me, like I said, and that’s when lani came in, and she, uh– she told tr to put his hands up, step away from me.

Rafe: And then what happened?

Paulina: Lani holstered her gun so she could arrest him, and just as she was about to handcuff him, I grabbed her gun.

Rafe: Oh. So you grabbed it from the holster?

Paulina: Yes, I did. And I shot that bastard right through his heart.

Lani: [Sighs] This isn’t your case, detective grant, all right? So why don’t you focus your energy on getting out of this bed and back into ours?

Eli: That sounds like a plan.

Lani: Sounds like a really good plan.

Eli: Maybe I can’t ask questions, but I’m worried about you. I’m worried about your mom, too.

Lani: I know. I am, too, which is why I need to get down to the station and check on her, all right? Hey. I am so grateful for you. And I’m so happy that you’re gonna be okay. I love you very much.

Eli: I love you, too.

[Monitor beeping]

[Dramatic music]

Rafe: Paulina… why? Why did you shoot tr? Because the way you describe the situation, it does not sound like he was a threat to you in that moment.

Paulina: The man shot eli! He attacked abe, who was out cold bleeding on the ground! I couldn’t let him get away with any of that!

Rafe: Again, you said that he was just about to be handcuffed, which means he wasn’t a threat.

Paulina: Do you know how many times when I was just a young girl that the cops came to our door after the man beat me to within an inch of my life and they just gave him a good talking-to and then left me there to get an even worse beating behind that same door?

Rafe: Well, I’m sorry that happened to you. The way police responded to domestic violence in the past was criminal, and we’ve changed things, but I’m sure we can still do better.

Paulina: Thank you for admitting that.

Rafe: Mm-hmm. But you knew. You knew that that wasn’t gonna happen to you this time. I mean, you said that lani, your very own daughter, was about to handcuff tr and take him away. So what happened, hmm? Did he resist arrest? Lani do something?

Paulina: Lani did nothing wrong! With relapsing forms of ms,

Rafe: Right now, I am more concerned with what you did and establishing your motives for shooting an unarmed man. I want to help you here, paulina, but… I need you to tell me the truth.

Paulina: I guess I just lost it, and I shot–I shot tr. He deserved it.

Rafe: Okay. Is there anything you want to add to that?

Paulina: No. Nothing. I’ve given my statement. That’s all I have to say.

Rafe: All right. All right, then… we’ll continue this later.

[Device beeps]

[Telephone rings]

[Door closes]

Abe: How did paulina get her hands on lani’s service weapon?

Steve: I just don’t know. But you were unconscious the whole time, right? You didn’t see or hear anything?

Abe: No, I was–I was out. I wa– maybe I did hear something.

Steve: What?

[Door opens]

Eli: Hey.

Abe: Hey.

Eli: You guys having a party without me?

Steve: Eli. Good to see you up and around.

Eli: Kind of happy about it myself.

Steve: Well, I guess I’ll get back to my son and, uh, let you guys catch up. We’ll be talking, right, abe?

Abe: That we will.

Steve: All right. Take care of yourself, eli.

Eli: Will do.

[Monitor beeping]

Abe: Well… I see that you finally woke up after your two-month nap.

[Both chuckle]

Eli: I guess I had to catch up on all that sleep I missed since lani had the twins.

Abe: Hmm, that’s a hell of a way to do it.

Eli: Yeah. I’m just sorry about what lani and paulina have gone through.

Abe: You mean because of tr, that son of a bitch who shot you?

Eli: Yeah. Well, paulina sure did make him pay for it, though, didn’t she?

Paulina: Ooh. Just stay cool, mama. Stick to the story.

[Telephone rings]

[Door closes] Aren’t you a sight for sore eyes?

Lani: Chanel and I– we wanted to come yesterday, but they wouldn’t let us see you.

Paulina: How is chanel doing with all this?

Lani: She’s shaken… and so worried about you.

Paulina: You tell her I’m gonna be just fine.

Lani: Well, I’m not… because we both know that you’re not the one who should be sitting here. It should be me.

Eric: I’m glad you’re home.

Nicole: Mm.

Eric: I wouldn’t want to– to leave town without saying goodbye.

Nicole: Eric, at the risk of sounding self-centered, which we both know I am…

Eric: [Chuckles]

Nicole: Are you leaving salem because of me?

Sarah: Mickey is with eric?

Xander: Yes.

Sarah: Mom, would you give xander and I a moment, please?

Maggie: Uh, well, I’m sure that xander would agree that anything that you want to discuss with him, you can certainly say it in front of me.

Xander: Actually, maggie, I think sarah’s right. We should probably sort this out just the two of us.

Maggie: Fine.

Sarah: Do you want to tell me why mickey is with eric?

Xander: He is mickey’s father.

Sarah: Yes, but he doesn’t know that. You and I agreed, xander. Everyone thinks that you are mickey’s father, including my mother, so none of this makes sense. Unless something’s changed. I thought that you didn’t have a problem keeping the secret about my baby.

Xander: I didn’t think so either.

Sarah: Then why are you acting like the one who’s lost their mind?

Xander: Sarah, look, I just–

[Sighs] There is something I have to tell you.

From prom dresses

Sarah: Well… what is it? What do you want to tell me?

Xander: Eric knows that he’s mickey’s father.

Sarah: You told him?

Xander: No.

Sarah: Was it nicole?

Xander: Actually, it was.

Sarah: Why would she do that? She was so concerned that eric would leave her if he found out that he had a child with me that she swore that she would keep this secret. Damn it! I knew I shouldn’t have trusted her.

Xander: Where are you going?

Sarah: I’m gonna go get my baby!

Xander: No, you can’t!

Sarah: I’m gonna have a word with nicole!

Xander: You can’t!

Sarah: Why not?

Xander: Sarah, if you would just please listen to me. Just hear me out for a second. It’s–it’s not–it’s not what you think.

Sarah: Well?

Xander: Well, you have to understand that, you know, when you were injected with that drug, none of us knew if you were ever gonna be okay again, if you would ever be able to be a mother to little mickey ever again. And, you know, your child came so close to losing one parent, we thought it was only fair that–it was only right that the other parent should know the truth.

Sarah: Well, I’m better now, so I’m gonna go get my–

Xander: You can’T.

Sarah: You know, there is a thing called mother’s intuition, and mine is screaming at me right now that there’s something that you are not telling me about my daughter.

Xander: It’s not about mickey. It’s, um… it’s about you, sarah. Maggie and I, we– we’ve been planning this big “welcome home, sarah” scottish breakfast just for you.

Sarah: A scottish breakfast?

Xander: Yes. Henderson knows all about it. He’s been working on it with the kitchen staff all morning, making all my favorites, which I’m sure are about to become your favorites.

Sarah: Hmm. You seem very confident.

Xander: Ah, well, you’ll totally get it when you try it. I mean, there’s gonna be square sausage and fried haggis and–and–and streaky bacon and tattie scones.

Sarah: That’s enough to feed an army.

Xander: Yeah, well, I mean, you just got out of hospital. You need to get your strength back up.

Sarah: [Chuckles] Oh, okay. That’s very sweet of you.

Xander: Yes.

Sarah: But, um, I’m just gonna grab something on the way to eric and nicole’S.

Xander: Oh, but you can’t go see mickey, you know, wearing this.

Sarah: What’s wrong with it?

Xander: Well, I didn’t want to say anything earlier, but there’s actually–there’s a small hole in the back here. It’s just really all torn up and–

Sarah: Xander!

Xander: I’m sorry. I made it so much worse. Look, why don’t you run upstairs and get changed? And, you know, by the time you’ve done that, breakfast will be ready. Come back down. We’ll have a nice feast and a chat and then go get mackenzie together–what do you say?

Sarah: Okay. I’ve learned how hard it is to say no to you. So, yeah, okay, we’ll have breakfast very quick, and then we’ll go ’cause I’m very excited to see my little girl.

Xander: Of course you are.

Sarah: Okay. Tattie scones?

Xander: Oh, you’re nna love them.


Sarah: Huh.

Eric: Are you kidding? Why would you think I’d be leaving town because of you?

Nicole: Well, I don’t know.

[Sighs] Maybe because I’m seeing rafe.

Eric: Nicole, I told you… I’m really happy for you.

Nicole: You know, it’s–it’s funny.

[Sighs] Um… I know what we had is over. You know, different people on different paths, but…

[Sighs] Still every time I see you, there’s a tiny part of me that has a hard time letting you go. We’re still friends, though, right?

Eric: [Chuckles] You’re the best friend I ever had.

Nicole: Your love made me a better person.

Eric: Oh, I know there’s some people who wouldn’t agree with this, including you… but your love made me a better person, too.


Nicole: Hey.

[Soft sentimental music]

Lani: I don’t feel good about this. It’s wrong.

Paulina: Like I said at the apartment, I know what I’m doing. Nothing has changed.

Lani: You’re not the one who killed ray.

Paulina: They only know what we tell them. I just need you to stick to the story.

Lani: And how do I do that? I’ve been able to avoid giving a statement so far, with eli waking up and my dad being hurt, but I cannot avoid rafe forever, and I’m– I’m gonna have to answer some really tough questions, like how you supposedly killed ray with my service weapon.

Paulina: Oh, well, baby girl, I’ve already answered that one. I just told rafe that I grabbed your gun from your holster while you were trying to arrest tr.

Lani: That’s not what happened.

Paulina: Says who?

Lani: Okay, I can’T. I can’t, paulina. I can’t just be quiet and let you take the blame for something that I did. I am going to confess to killing ray.

Paulina: Like hell you are! Still struggling with ibs-c, mike knew he needed a plan.

Eli: Oh, so you got to be the mayor of salem to get the good jell-o, huh?

[Scoffs] They keep giving me the green one. Man…

[Monitor beeping]

Abe: Hmm.

Eli: You’re kind of quiet. You okay?

Abe: Yeah, you know, I’m fine. It’s just– it’s just something that steve said.

Eli: What was that?

Abe: Well, he–he said that paulina used lani’s gun to shoot ray.

Eli: What? Paulina used lani’s gun? Wait, no, I-I just assumed that she used tr’s gun, or she had her own weapon for personal safety.

Abe: So lani didn’t say anything about–about that?

Eli: No, I mean, she’s– she’s pretty stressed and– and–and upset about the whole situation, but, no, she hasn’t offered up any details. Wait. There–there was one thing that was strange.

Abe: What?

Eli: The only thing lani said to me was that paulina said she shot ray. Why do you think she put it that way? Lani was there. She witnessed the shooting.

Paulina: I’m no lawyer, but you’re a cop who shot an unarmed man. There’s no defense for that.

Lani: I came in. I saw my dad on the floor possibly dead. And I already knew that ray had shot the father of my children. And then I saw him raise his hand to you. And, oh, my god, I just… I just–I lost it. I lost it.

Paulina: The bastard deserved it! But as much as he deserved it, you can’t confess to that, baby. They will lock you up. You will lose your job, your freedom, those precious years with your husband and children.

Lani: Paulina, you will go to prison, too.

Paulina: Maybe. Maybe not.

Rafe: Evening.

Eric: Hey.

Nicole: Um, eric was just saying goodbye.

Rafe: Oh. You’re leaving?

Eric: I am. I’m going back to africa.

Rafe: Oh. Well… well, you’ll be missed, man.

Eric: Thanks.

Rafe: Yeah.

Eric: Take care. Rafe.

Rafe: Yep. Yeah. Well… that was some hug.

Nicole: [Chuckles] It was totally plutonic. You know that. Okay, don’t look at me like that, please.

Rafe: Okay. I’m sorry. It’s just you two were married and, uh, quite recently, in fact. And, um… yeah, he, uh, was your–your first love, right? So…

Nicole: True. But you are my current love.

Rafe: Oh?

Nicole: Mm-hmm. And you have absolutely no reason to be jealous.

Rafe: Really?

Nicole: Mm-hmm. None, zero, zip.

Rafe: Okay. Good.

Maggie: Did you tell sarah about mickey?

Xander: I couldn’T.

Maggie: Xander!

Xander: Maggie, you got to understand. The last time I told sarah that mickey died, she was so angry about me swapping out her child for kristen and brady’s, allowing her to fall in love with their daughter and denying her the opportunity to properly mourn her own that I lost her.

Maggie: But you got her back.

Xander: But then I lost her again to this bloody drug. I finally got her back, maggie. And if I tell her the truth, I’m gonna lose her all over again.

Maggie: But the lie, it’s so big, xander.

Xander: I know. I just–I just feel horrible about it, but I just– I need to find a way to keep sarah in the dark about mickey just until I can figure something out.

Maggie: Xander. Sarah forgave you once. She’ll forgive you again.

Sarah: Forgive xander for what?

Limu emu

[Both moan softly]

Rafe: Right. Yes. Okay, see?

Nicole: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: I know. I shouldn’t be jealous.

Nicole: Right.

Rafe: Eric is part of your past. I have a past, too, obviously.

Both: Yeah.

Nicole: Most of us do.

Rafe: That’s right.

Nicole: Yeah.

Rafe: Yeah, definitely. You know, I think maybe being jealous is just part of being in love, in a relationship.

Nicole: Yeah. It can be.

Rafe: Yeah.

Nicole: But, uh, for you, in your case, I advise you, sir, not to be jealous, because I am completely, absolutely 100% committed to you and only you.

Rafe: Oh, okay. I like that. Yes, I do. So maybe we should take this conversation to the bedroom… maybe even the shower.

Nicole: [Gasps]

Rafe: I don’t know.

Nicole: Race you!


Xander: I was just hoping that you’d forgive me for having to rush out on a work emergency on your first day back home. But I promise I’ll be back soon, my love. And, hey, uh, why don’t you stay with sarah and enjoy the scottish breakfast without me?

Maggie: Scottish breakfast?

Xander: Oh, don’t tell me you forgot about the special welcome-home breakfast. Henderson knows all about it. Don’t forget the streaky bacon, okay? My love… I’ll be back soon, and we’ll go get mickey together, yeah?

Sarah: Okay.

[Dramatic music]

Abe: You know, it’s possible that… that lani wasn’t there when tr got shot.

Eli: It doesn’t make sense. I mean, how could paulina have gotten lani’s gun?

Paulina: What have you done?

Abe: Maybe… maybe that’S… who paulina was talking to.

Eli: Wait, you remember something?

Abe: I think maybe I heard paulina talking to lani.

Paulina: Women like me… victims of domestic violence… we can suffer from ptsd. We–we can interpret the words and behavior of a man that hurt us in such a way that when we– we finally find the strength to fight back, we think that we’re acting in self-defense. We actually believe we’re fighting for our lives. Now, maybe I can convince a judge and a jury that’s what happened here.

Lani: I can’t imagine what you went through.

Paulina: Oh, baby, I got stories about what that man did to me I have not told anyone.

[Sighs] I’m still– I made myself– I made myself forget because I’m still–I’m still scared of the memories. I’m still ashamed that I didn’t have the strength to just leave him. I was too weak and just kept coming back for more.

Lani: No, no. I will not let you take the blame. You were ray’s victim. And you did find the strength to leave, to protect yourself, to protect me. And that took… incredible courage.

Paulina: And… what did I do with it? After all these years, I let ray back into my life, into your life. He hurt us all! And I am not going to let him hurt my baby girl… not anymore.

Paulina: Lani, please let me do this for you.

Lani: I can’T. I can’T.

Paulina: Oh, well, if not for you, then let me do it for eli, for abe, most of all, for jules and carver. Now, they all need you. Me, they can–they can get along without me just fine.

Lani: Yeah. But I can’t get along with you. I need you.

Paulina: And I need you to let me do this for you. And there’s not another word to say about it.

Eli: What did you hear exactly?

Abe: Well, after tr hit me, I went down… and I think I heard paulina say… “what have you done?” Now, why would she say that? Oh, my god.

Eli: Do you think lani shot tr?

Xander: Eric, I-I heard you’re back in town, mate.

Eric: Would you please excuse me?

Xander: Please don’t rush off. Look, I know you hate me, and I don’t blame you, but I’m desperate, eric, I really need your help.

[Knock at door]

Nicole: Coming. Hi.

Sarah: Good, you’re here. I-I’ve come to take my baby home.

Jake: You cold?

Ava: Why would I be cold? It’s may.

Jake: [Chuckles] It’s cold and it’s may.

[Mimics explosion] And creepy.

Ava: Yeah. It was your great idea to come here.

Jake: Yeah, it was. And it certainly didn’t put you in a chipper mood, now did it?

Ava: Okay, listen, I’m sorry. All right? I am sorry. I just–I–I cannot believe you have decided to go work for dimera again. I thought that you were done with that nest of vipers. And especially the queen viper herself.

Jake: Queen viper herself? You wouldn’t mean gabi, now would you?

Ava: Oh, yeah, gabi. Yes, and in spite of all the petty and miserable things she’s done, she still has her hooks in you.

Jake: No, no, she doesn’t have her hooks in me, okay? She presented a very good argument for me to back to dimera.

Ava: Mm-hmm. So when she was presenting that argument, was she on the top, bottom–

Jake: Okay, no, no, no. It wasn’t like that. Wasn’t like that. Look, it is my birthright to be part of dimera. Just like it is chad’s and ej’S. And I never should have let them chase me out of that company in the first place. Plus, shin is a big fan of mine. Gabi seems to think that I can help her stabilize the company.

Ava: Yeah. And it helps her keep you in her orbit. There’s gonna be business dinners, business trips…

Jake: Trust me when I say gabi and I are done.

Ava: Mmm. So you’re relationship’s just platonic then, huh? Kind of like ours.


Steve: Mmm.

Kayla: [Giggles] Ahh. Hello.

Steve: Hi.

Kayla: That was quick. I just texted you 20 minutes ago.

Steve: Yeah, I was down at the station, um, asking about allie.

Kayla: And?

Steve: Well, if they know anything, they’re not talking.

Kayla: [Sighs]

Steve: How’s the baby?

Kayla: Perfect.

Steve: Ah, finally, some good news.

Kayla: Yeah.

Steve: What about ciara?

Kayla: She’s fine. Uh, she and ben are, predictably, over the moon.

Steve: Good.

Kayla: They told me what they named him.

Steve: Yeah?

Kayla: They named him bo.

Steve: That’s perfect.

Kate: Lucas, it’s me. I gave you 24 hours, and I haven’t heard a word from you.

[Groans] Everyone is looking for you and sami. They’re wondering where you are. And allie is in trouble, and she needs you. I know that I promised I would keep it a secret what you did to sami, but I am going to have to tell roman.

Roman: Tell roman what?

[Phone beeps]

Ciara: Ben, am I seeing things?

Ben: If you are, then I am too.

Ciara: Daddy?

Bo: In the flesh. Well, not exactly in the flesh.

[Sighs] I’m the one who taught you how to remap a fuel-injection system.

Ciara: [Gasps] It really is you. You came back. You were at the cemetery.

Bo: Yeah, that was me.

[Baby cries]

Ciara: You saved his life.

[Baby cooing]

[Sniffles] Honey… this is your grandad. Daddy, I named him bo.

[Baby cooing]

Bo: Thank you for that.

Eric: Tripp? Can you hear me?

Demon tripp: Well, that was surprisingly easy. The boy didn’t even put up a fight. But it seems his sacrifice was for naught. Allie is still going to die… and by tripp’s own hands.

Marlena: No! God, no!

Tripp: No! I won’t let you hurt her.

John: Let me help you, son.

Tripp: There is no help. There’s only–

Marlena: Tripp! No! No!

[Glass shattering]

John: [Groans]

[Dramatic music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

John: Oh, this is bad.

Eric: Yeah, let’s get down there.

Marlena: Allie?

Johnny: Hey.

Marlena: Allie?

Johnny: Hey. Everything’s fine. It’s fine. It’s fine.

Allie: No, it’s not. Wh–where are we?

Johnny: We’re at st. Luke’S.

Allie: We’re at a church? Why? Wh–what’s going on?

Marlena: Look, we’ll explain about all that. But what’s important is how are you? How do you feel?

Allie: I– I had awful dreams. The baby– there was a baby.

Johnny: Yeah. Allie, listen, that was ciara’s baby. He’s fine now.

Allie: But I– what did I do?

Marlena: Johnny–

Johnny: No, she needs to know. Like I did. You were possessed.

Allie: No. No, that was you.

Johnny: Yeah, yeah, I was. Uh, but then the devil went from me into you. And you fought him so hard, allie, you really did.

Allie: Tripp… tripp–just now I heard his voice. Tripp was here, I know he was. Where is he?

John: Don’t do it, don’t do it. Don’t touch him.

Eric: Tripp. Tripp, it’s eric. Can you hear me?

Tripp: Is–is allie okay?

John: Yeah, she’s fine, kid. She is just fine.

Eric: You saved her.

Tripp: The devil?

Eric: He’s gone. He’s gone, thanks to you.

Tripp: He tried to hurt allie.

John: Whoa, whoa, hang in there, come on, kid. Hang in there. Stay with me, stay with me.

Eric: We need an ambulance at st. Luke’S. There’s massive trauma. Just get here as fast as you can.

[Phone beeps] Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Marlena: Easy, easy. We heard the sirens.

Eric: John’s gone with tripp in the ambulance.

Allie: What are you talking about? Where’s tripp?

Eric: What does she know?

Allie: I know that tripp was here. You know what happened to him, don’t you? Tell me! For god’s sake, tell me.

Ciara: I never thought that I would see you again.

Bo: I’ve been watching over you all along. You, your mom, your brother, and now…this little guy. He’s safe.

Ciara: But the devil is still out there, dad.

Bo: No. The devil’s gone. He’s not coming back.

Ciara: Are you sure?

Bo: Am I– is that any way to speak to your old man?

Ciara: [Chuckles] No. Not at all.

Bo: Yeah, baby, I’m sure. You and this little guy are safe. It’s over.

Ciara: How do you know that, dad? How can you be sure?

Bo: Because one good man sacrificed everything to get rid of him.

Steve: You know, baby, I see a lot of bo in ciara. Don’t you?

Kayla: Oh, all the time. And now she’s so fierce about that little baby. Well, it’s like her dad was always so fierce about his kids.

Steve: Yeah, and that was pretty fierce.

Kayla: Yeah.

Steve: Hey, do you have time to give stephanie and joe a call and tell them they have a new cousin?

Kayla: Yeah.

Steve: Or is it a second cousin? I can never…

Kayla: John, hi.

Steve: Keep that straight. Hey, john. What’s the matter?

John: Tripp’s had an accident.

Steve: What kind of accident?

John: He took a fall, steve. It’s not good. He’s in the er.

Kayla: I–I better go down there.

Steve: Okay, let’s go.

Kayla: No, no, you– you need to stay here and call ava first, okay?

Steve: [Sighs] I’m right behind you.

Jake: I’m starting to think that maybe sometimes you don’t like gabi very much.

Ava: [Scoffs] You’re very funny.

Jake: So a minute ago… when you mentioned that our relationship is platonic, would I be out of line if I said maybe you don’t like that very much? Like, you know, if gabi hadn’t interrupted us that maybe…

Ava: Maybe I’m in a bad mood because gabi interrupted us.

Jake: Huh. Yeah, we don’t seem to be having very much fun here, huh? Maybe we should…head home?

Ava: Yeah. Yeah, let’s go.

[Phone rings] Hmm. It’s steve.

[Phone beeps] Hey, steve, what’s up?

Steve: Ava, tripp’s in the hospital. Uh, there’s been an accident.

Ava: Okay, how bad is it?

Steve: I–I don’t know yet. You just need to get down here right away.

Ava: Yeah, I’ll–I’ll be– I’ll be right there.

[Phone beeps]

Jake: Everything okay?

Ava: It’s tripp. I have to get to tripp.

Roman: Wow. Must, uh– whatever it is, this must be, uh, real bad. You’re, uh, ready to set tables rather than, uh, talk to me.

Kate: I– I’m not trying not to talk to you, I’m just trying to figure out how to tell you.

Roman: Tell me what?

Kate: I know that you’re worried about sami.

Roman: And?

Kate: Well, and I am too.

Roman: What?

Lucas: Wait, wait. Because of me? With depression, you just feel…blah.

Lucas: All right, mom. Mom, I can’t breathe. Come on. Hi, roman, how you doing?

Roman: Hey, lucas.

Kate: Okay, so where the hell were you, and why didn’t you answer my phone calls?

Lucas: Well–well, before I get to that, why don’t you just tell me how allie’s doing. Is she okay? Where is she?

Roman: Well, lucas, we’re, uh, sorry about that, but, uh, we don’t know.

Allie: You said I was possessed. Did I do that? Did I hurt tripp?

Eric: Allie… you didn’t hurt tripp, I promise.

Johnny: Allie, you fought the devil. You really fought him.

Eric: Listen, you’re in pretty rough shape. We need to get you home.

Allie: But I need to see tripp.

Eric: No, you don’T. The doctor’s gonna take care of tripp, and we’re gonna take care of you. You need to take care of henry.

Allie: Wait, but ciara’s baby?

Johnny: We didn’t even know where ciara was, you told us. And because of that, that baby boy is with his mom and dad. So come on. Let’s get you home.

Marlena: Yeah. Let’s get you home.

Eric: Come on.

Marlena: Come on, sweetie.

Ciara: Wait, who was it? What do you mean, “sacrifice everything”?

Bo: You’ll find out soon enough. But don’t worry. You and that little guy have a whole lot of bradys and hortons watching over you. Even a weston or two.

Ciara: [Weeps]

Bo: Oh, ben.

Ben: Yes, sir?

Bo: Please, don’t call me sir.

Ciara: [Laughs]

Ben: Yes, sir. I mean–I mean, um–

Bo: Look, man, um… I know you’re worried about having a baby, and I know why. But you gotta let it go. If there’s one thing I’ve learned, it’s all about redemption. And you, young man? You’ve redeemed yourself. You’re a good man. Mm, you’re an okay husband.

[Chuckles] And if you work real hard, you’ll be a great dad.

Ciara: [Sniffles]

Ben: Thank you.

Bo: Oh. [Clears throat] I love you, little one. But I gotta go.

Ciara: Wait, no, dad–

Bo: Yeah, there’s something I gotta take care of. Tell your mom I love her. Give that little guy lots of kisses for me. And, little one, I’m really proud of you.

Ciara: [Sobs]

Bo: All right. I’m out of here.

Ciara: Dad, wait!


[Sniffles] I always wanted you to meet my dad.


Ava: John, where is he? Wh–where’s tripp?

John: Took him straight to the trauma unit down that way. Steve’s with him.

Jake: I’ll wait here. Go.

Ava: Okay.

Jake: He gonna be okay?

John: I don’t know.

Kayla: 360. Clear.

[Paddles thump]

Ava: Is he gonna be okay? What–what happened to him?

[Monitor flatlining] Why are you stopping? Do it again.

Kayla: I’m–I’m sorry.

Steve: [Groans]

Kayla: I’m sorry.

Ava: Wh–wh–why are you– why are you sorry? Do–do–do–do it again.

Kayla: No, I’m sorry…

Ava: S–s–save him.

Kayla: It’s– it’s too late, he’s gone.

[Breathes unsteadily]

Ava: No, no, no. No, no, he–he can’t be gone. No. Tripp? Tripp?

Steve: Come on. Lemons.

Roman: What? Wait a minute. Sami’s in the hospital? Why are you just telling me this?

Lucas: Listen, we were skiing in italy, and she was going down this run– and I told her not to do it. I told her it was too advanced, and she wouldn’t listen to me. And she wiped out. She broke her leg. She fractured her leg, she has other fractures– it’s bad. She’s in traction and she can’t fly right now. There’s no way.

Kate: Ah ha. So why didn’t you call?

Lucas: Because the reception was terrible, that’s why. I mean, we did get your message about allie. Which is why, since sami heard that, she insisted that I fly home immediately. So here I am.

Roman: So you just left left her there?

Lucas: I didn’t leave her. I mean, she’ll be fine. You know? She’s in the hands of trained professionals.

Roman: All right, I need to let marlena know.

Kate: Okay, what’s the real story?

Lucas: I just told you the real story.

Kate: Oh. Oh, she’s really in the hospital?

Lucas: Yeah, she is, mom. Now, why would I lie about something like that?

Kate: Oh, I don’t know, maybe because you lied the first time you kidnapped her. Why not this time?

Ben: You know, now more than ever…

[Baby coos] I am so glad we named him after your dad.

Ciara: Mmm.

[Sniffles] It was him at the cemetery, ben.

[Baby cooing]

[Sniffles] He’s the reason why I was able to step in the pentagram.

Ben: Ciara, he’s why we’re with our son right now.

Jake: Hey. Gimme this good news.

Ciara: [Sniffles]

Jake: Oh, I’ll, uh– I’ll come back.

Ciara: No, no, it’s fine. Come. You can meet– come meet bo.

Jake: Oh, man.

Ciara: Aw.

Jake: Aw, he’s beautiful.

Ciara: [Sniffles] Mmm.

Jake: [Sighs] And he’s okay.

Ciara: Yeah.

Jake: You are too, right?

Ciara: Uh–[Chuckles weakly] Yeah. Yeah, I am. It’s been a crazy night though.

Jake: Sure has.

Both: Yeah.

Ciara: [Exhales unsteadily]

Ben: What is it, jake?

Jake: I wish I didn’t have to tell you this, but, um… ava got a call about a half hour ago. Tripp was in an accident. Although john made it sound like it was less of an accident, more of A…sacrifice.

Ciara: Ben, my dad said something about a– oh, my god, jake… is tripp dead?

Ava: Kayla, please. Kayla, please do something.

Kayla: Um, I’m sorry. There is nothing else that can be done. I’m–I’m really so sorry.

Ava: Stop saying you’re sorry. You’re not.

Steve: Ava, stop, please.

Ava: No, the hell I will.

Steve: Come on.

Ava: You happy? You happy now?

Steve: [Groans]

Ava: Huh? Now that you got everything that you wanted? You hated–you hated that– that steve and I had– had a son, didn’t you? And so–so you killed him. You just let him die.

Steve: No, ava– ava, stop it! Stop it! Our–our son is dead. Kayla did everything she could. But he’s gone. And you have to stop this. Out of respect for him.

Kayla: Uh… we’re–we’re gonna leave you alone.

Steve: [Sighs]


[Emotional music]


Ava: He’s dead.

[Sniffling] Our sweet, perfect boy is dead.


[Both crying]

Kayla: [Sniffles]

John: Kay?

Kayla: Uh… I lost him.

John: Oh, my god.

Kayla: I did everything I could, but I–

[Sobs] But I lost him.

John: I know, I know that. I know, kay, I know.

Kayla: [Exhales heavily]

Johnny: Grandma, you’re a doctor. You think tripp’s gonna make it?

Marlena: Oh, hi.

Allie: He’s sleeping. I don’t even remember the last time I saw him.

Marlena: Well, he’s– he’s been fine. We’ve all been looking after him.

Johnny: Yeah.

Allie: Thank you. But now you need to tell me what happened–what I did.

Marlena: Well, maybe that can wait until you’re a little more rested.

Allie: No, I can’t sleep. I mean, I need to know. You told me that the devil left you and went into me? How?

Johnny: Okay, okay, do you, um–[Clears throat] Do you remember coming to the mansion to tell me off?

Allie: Yes, because you’d–

Johnny: Because I had told tripp about you and chanel. But that wasn’t me, allie.

Allie: It was the devil?

Johnny: You figured that out. And you were helping me fight. But then…

Allie: He went into me?

Johnny: I was so worried about you. I missed you.

Allie: I don’t remember much, but I missed you too. Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Lucas: You think I kidnapped sami?

Kate: Oh, spare me. Seriously, it wouldn’t be the first time.

Lucas: Shh.

Kate: Hey, so did you talk to marlena?

Roman: Uh, voicemail. Left a message. It’s not as if she doesn’t have enough to worry about with allie, now this with sami.

Lucas: Well, you said that something was going on with allie before. She was in some kind of trouble. What’s going on?

Kate: Lucas, allie’s possessed.

Lucas: By the devil? You’re busting my chops not telling you that sami’s in the hospital, and my own daughter’s possessed by the devil now?

Eric: No, no, not any more.

Roman: What happened?

Eric: [Sighs] Tripp, he’s in the hospital. He saved allie’s life.

Lucas: He saved her?

Eric: Allie’s life was at stake. The devil had control of her, and, tripp, he called the devil into him. And then when he had control of tripp, he tried to kill allie.

Lucas: What?

Eric: He threw himself out the church tower window.

Lucas: So where is allie now? Is she at the hospital too?

Eric: No, mom and johnny, they took her over to nicole’s to see henry.

Lucas: I gotta go. I gotta get to her.

[Tense music]

Marlena: Why don’t you get some rest?

Johnny: [Sighs] Allie, you’re falling down tired. Why don’t you do what grandma says.

Allie: I’m home. Thank you.

Johnny: Yeah.

Allie: Thank you.

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

[Both sigh]

Johnny: [Sniffs]

[Clears throat]

[Sighs] If tripp doesn’t make it, I don’t know what that’ll do to her.

[Phone ringing]

Marlena: It’s john.

[Phone beeps] John?

John: I’m afraid it’s bad news, doc.

Jake: Your father was here?

Ciara: First at the cemetery, and then right here just now.

[Baby hiccupping]

Ben: John said tripp was trying to save allie.

Jake: Yeah. Yeah, he got the devil to leave her and go into him.

Ben: And he jumped.

Ciara: Um, but allie’s okay? She’s fine?

Jake: Yeah.

Ciara: Back at the cabin, and then at the cemetery, it was so terrifying to look at her beautiful face and to see so much hatred and evil.

[Baby coos]

Ben: Kid, I sure hope the rest of your life is is a lot calmer than the beginning. And I’m so glad that you’re okay.

Ciara: [Sniffles] Yeah.

Jake: Dude… congratulations.

Ciara: Thank you.

Jake: I’m happy for you guys.

Ciara: Thank you.

Jake: All right, I’m gonna go check on tripp. Ava can’t lose him.

Ciara: [Exhales heavily]

[Phone beeps]

John: Doc sends her love.

Jake: It’s bad, isn’t it?

John: Tripp died a few minutes ago.

Jake: Where’s ava?

Kayla: Uh, she’s with steve in the trauma room with tripp.

Jake: All right.

[Emotional music]

Steve: He looks like a little boy.

Ava: I wouldn’t know.

[Sniffles] I wasn’t allowed to know him till– so many lost years. So much wasted time.

Steve: [Sighs] Think about the time we did have with him. Okay?

Ava: [Sniffles]

Steve: He loved you, ava.

Ava: [Laughs weakly] That was a damn stupid thing to do.

[Sniffles] I’m poison, and he should have just run away.

Steve: Oh, come on. Come on. No.

Ava: I didn’t deserve a son like him.

[Sniffles] He sure as hell didn’t deserve a mother like me.

Steve: That’s not gonna help.

Ava: [Laughs weakly] Maybe I don’t deserve to be helped.

Steve: Ava, come on. Come on.

Ava: [Sniffles]





Jake: Ava…

Ava: [Sobs] He’s gone. My baby is gone.

Jake: [Sighs] I’m sorry.

Ava: [Sobs]

Jake: I’m so sorry.

From prom dresses

Johnny: So he died saving allie.

Marlena: “No greater love.”

Johnny: I don’t know how we’re gonna tell her.

Allie: Tell me what?

Lucas: Allie. Allie, it’s me. It’s dad, open up.

Allie: Dad!

[Melancholy music]

Ava: [Sniffles]

Jake: Hey, how about I get you home?

Ava: [Sniffling]



Jake: I’m so sorry.

Steve: Okay. Okay.

Ava: [Sniffles]

Steve: [Gasps]

[Weeping] Why him? Oh, why? My boy.

[Sniffles] Oh, no.



[Door closes]


Kayla: I–I called stephanie and joe. I didn’t want them to hear it from anybody else.

Steve: My sweetness.

Kayla: Come here, come here, come here.

Steve: [Weeping]

Kayla: Come here, oh. Oh, I know. I’m so sorry.

Steve: I want my boy.

Kayla: I know, I’m sorry.

Steve: [Sobbing]

Kayla: I’m so sorry.

Steve: I want my boy.

[Chimes tinkle]

[Ethereal music]

Steve: [Sobbing]

Tripp: [Gasps] Allie.

Kayla: Oh, my god. Oh, my god. He didn’t have a heartbeat or a pulse.

Steve: Tripp? It’s dad. Hey.

Tripp: Dad.

Steve: Huh? Hey, kid. Hello, buddy. Buddy? Oh, my god.

Ava: [Sniffles]

John: I’m sorry, ava.

Ava: [Weeping]

Jake: I’m gonna get her home.

John: Yeah. Hey, um, anything you–you need, just–just call, okay?

Jake: Thanks, man.

[Elevator dings]

Steve: Ava…wait.

Ava: [Sobs]

Steve: Hey. I was on an antidepressant,

[Monitor beeping]

Ava: It’s true.

Kayla: It’s true. He’s alive.

Tripp: Hey, mom.

Ava: [Sniffs]

[Whispering] My son.

[Tender music]

[Baby hiccupping]

Ben: Babe, you’re not gonna believe this.

[Sighs] Kayla pronounced tripp dead. Then he came back to life.

Ciara: Wow. I believe it. Remember when my dad said that he had something left to do?

Ben: [Exhales]

Ciara: Baby, are you crying?

Ben: [Sighs] Ciara, if he died? Allie, his parents–

[Sighs] It would have killed them.

Ciara: I know.

Ben: I just–I just– I want everybody to just be as happier as we are right now.

Ciara: [Scoffs lightly] You know what?

[Sniffs] I don’t think that anybody can be as happy as we are right now.


Ben: [Sighs]

Roman: Thank you, kayla.


Kate: Well?

Roman: It was close. Kayla thought they’d lost him. But, uh, it does look like, uh, tripp is gonna be just fine.

Eric: Oh, thank god.

Lucas: I’m just so sorry. I should have been here for you.

Allie: No, there’s nothing that you could have done. There’s nothing that anyone could have done. Except tripp. Did you hear about him?

Johnny: Yeah. Uh, yeah, we did.

Allie: [Sniffs] Did he die? Did he die because of me?

Lucas: No, honey, don’t say that. Don’t do that to yourself. Stop, stop.

Allie: Yes. Because I never got to tell him how I felt. I never got to tell him that I love him.


Lucas: I’m so sorry.

[Knock at door]

Allie: No, I can’T. I can’t see anyone.

Lucas: Yeah, of course you can’t, it’s not a good time.

Marlena: I’ll take care of it.

Allie: [Weeps]

John: Couldn’t get through. It’s–it’s okay. It’s okay. Allie… tripp…he pulled through. He is alive. And kayla thinks he’s gonna be just fine, honey.

Allie: Oh, my god.

John: He’s gonna be just fine.

Allie: Oh, thank god.


[Monitor beeping]

Ava: You’re really here?

Tripp: How’s allie?

Kayla: She’s gonna be just fine. Thanks to you.

Steve: Our son the hero.

Ava: Mmm. Please don’t ever scare us like that again.

[Chuckles weakly]

Tripp: I won’T. I love you guys.

Steve: We love you, son.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Belle: Sorry, I just got out of court. Any word on allie or ciara’s baby?

Eric: No, not yet. Dad, he’s on his way back over to take over so I can go help with the search. I’m sure shawn’s been working around the clock.

Belle: Yeah, probably. I don’t know, I haven’t heard from him. Things are still not good between us.

Eric: I’m sorry. I mean, the last time we spoke, you said you were ready to move back in.

Belle: Well, I was, but jan spears beat me to it.

Eric: What?

Belle: Yep. That maniac is now living in my family’s home with my husband.

Shawn: John. Hi.

John: Hey, I heard that evan frears was arrested.

Shawn: Yeah, yeah, he’s in there. He’s just waiting to get transferred back to statesville.

John: All right. Say anything about my granddaughter? Does he know where she is?

Shawn: He claims he doesn’t know, but he did tell ben, ciara, and me what the devil has planned for their baby.

John: And that is?

Shawn: He wants him to be his permanent host body here on earth.

John: Ah, jeez.

Shawn: If we don’t stop him, he’s gonna take control of my nephew, body and soul.

[Cell phone ringing]

Marlena: Hi, tripp. What’s happening?

Tripp: Hey, I was hoping maybe you had some news about allie?

Marlena: I do. We think she’s headed to the cemetery and she has the baby with her.

Tripp: Do you know if allie and the baby are all right?

Marlena: I know she’s still possessed.

Tripp: Oh, man.

Marlena: But johnny went to the cemetery about half an hour ago. I’m still waiting to hear from him.

Charlie: [Chuckles] Talk about a glass jaw.

Demon allie: Once the ritual of transference is completed, you can get rid of him and his sister.

[Eerie music]

Ciara: Get the hell away from my son.

Demon allie: He won’t be your son for much longer. Soon, he and I will become one.

Ciara: Not while I’m around.

Ben: Just stay back. I’ll get the baby.

Charlie: I wouldn’t do that if I were you.

[Electricity zapping]

Ben: Ugh!

Ciara: Ben!

[Baby crying] Ben.

Charlie: [Laughing] I tried to warn him. You two wasted your time coming here. My boss has already won this battle.

[Eerie music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

John: Don’t worry, shawn, we’re not gonna let the devil take that little baby.

Shawn: The problem is we need to find him first.

[Cell phone beeps]


John: Is that about allie?

Shawn: Ah, no. It’s– god, it’s jan. Her ankle monitor went off. She must’ve breached the perimeter to the house.

John: Ah. You sound surprised. Didn’t occur to you that she might try to take off?

Shawn: Look, I don’t like her living in my house any more than you or belle do, okay?

John: All right, just you find allie and the baby. I’ll deal with jan spears.

Shawn: Are you sure?

John: Damn right, I’m sure. I don’t want that crazy woman anywhere near my daughter.

Eric: Listen, I’m sorry, I just don’t understand this agreement. Women give birth in prison all the time. Don’t they realize that jan spears, she’s a threat to our community?

Belle: Yep. True on both counts, but shawn talked to the warden about jan’s high-risk pregnancy, and he let her out on house arrest.

Eric: But does shawn have to agree to this insane agreement?

Belle: Oh yeah, he did. But then shawn brady’s not gonna say “yeah, let her go back to prison, I don’t care if she loses my baby.”

Eric: Belle, you can’t let this woman destroy your marriage.

Belle: Eric, what am i supposed to do? I’m not gonna go and live in the same house with jan, and shawn feels responsible for the baby. So we’re just at a basic standoff and, you know, I don’t see that ending anytime soon.

Marlena: Yes, I will call you as soon as I hear from johnny or ben and ciara.

Tripp: What about the police?

Marlena: I’m still waiting to hear back from shawn.

Tripp: I’m going out there.

Marlena: What can you do?

Tripp: I’m a doctor, for one, and I’m not just gonna sit around while allie goes through this.

Marlena: Sounds like you care about her.

Tripp: I told myself I didn’t, but that was just my wounded ego. I love your granddaughter. And I’m gonna do whatever I can to get her out of this nightmare.

[Baby crying]

[Wind whistling]

Ciara: Oh, thank god you’re still alive. I am not gonna let you get away with this. That is my baby, and I want him back.

Charlie: You’re gonna fry, just like hubby did.

Ciara: Please, god. Please give me the strength to fight this battle.

Charlie: What the hell?

[Energy radiating]

Ciara: [Straining] Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Johnny: [Groaning] Ciara?

Charlie: Uh, boss? I think we have a problem.

Demon allie: No. It cannot be. That’s impossible.

Ciara: It’s okay, sweetie. Mommy’s here. Mommy’s gonna save you.

Eric: Listen, once jan, she gives birth to this baby, she’s gonna have to go back and complete her sentence, right?

Belle: Then what about the baby?

Eric: That’s a hard one.

Belle: Right. So jan has made sure that that child is gonna tie her to shawn, and she is gonna be in his life forever.

Eric: Belle, you have one choice. You can let it defeat you or you can hold on to your marriage and fight for it.

[Cell phone beeps]

Belle: Oh, my god.

Eric: What?

Belle: It’s from my dad. Jan’s ankle monitor went off, so he’s on his way over there to check them out. She could be on the loose, eric. What is that psycho gonna do this time?

Eric: Right.

John: [Sighs]

Jan: I am so glad that– oh, it’s you.

John: That’s right. And it looks like you put on that little get-up for nothing.

Jan: What are you doing here?

John: Well, I was with shawn when your ankle monitor went off. So I said, “no, shawn, no, no, you just–you stay here at the cop shop, and you keep looking for ciara and the baby, and I’ll deal with jan.” You see, he thought you probably took off, but I knew that you would be right here.

Jan: Of course I’m right here. I’m on bed rest for the remainder of my pregnancy.

John: So you figured out a way to jimmy that thing, huh?

Jan: I was bored. I wanted shawn to come home and keep me company.

John: Looks like you’re stuck with me instead.

Jan: You don’t have to stay. As you can see, everything is fine.

John: No, that’s okay. Actually, I was looking for a little time alone with you.

Jan: Why? So you can choke me back into another coma?

John: Tempted, but no. But what I am gonna do is I’m gonna lay out all the reasons why you’re gonna stay away from my daughter.

Shawn: I don’t give a damn how understaffed you are, I want evan frears off my hands as soon as possible, all right?

Marlena: Why haven’t you answered my calls?

Shawn: I’m sorry, I just got your messages, but I had my hands full. I got evan frears in there, and I’ve got– jan’s ankle monitor went off.

Marlena: Deal with that later.

Shawn: John said he’s taking care of it.

Marlena: Okay, well, I’ll go over there when I can. Look, johnny and susan and i think that we’ve made contact with allie, tonight. And I think she’s taken the baby to the cemetery. So I’ve contacted ben. He’s on his way over there and johnny is too. But I think when we need backup. I think we really need the help of the police on this.

Johnny: Ciara! Can I help you?

Demon allie: Be gone, mortal. I said be gone!

Ciara: Ah! Hi. Hi, bo.

[Baby cooing] Hi.

[Soft dramatic music]

I’m your mommy. You’re safe now. Shh, it’s okay. You’re safe.

[Sighing] My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Ciara: It’s okay, bo. You’re safe now.

Demon allie: Don’t think you’ve vanquished me. I will win this yet.


Charlie: Boss, what’s happening?

Demon allie: The forces of good are at work.

Ciara: You’ll never get this baby away from me.

Demon allie: I can still–

[Spluttering] Still–

Charlie: Still what, boss?

Demon allie: The light! I have to get away from the light.

Charlie: Hey, boss, wh– where’re you going? Should I go with you? Ahh! You! You ruined everything! I was supposed to raise that baby!

Ciara: Don’t you know that that was never going to happen?

Charlie: Yeah? Well, if I don’t get to be the father, neither does he!

Ciara: No. No, charlie! Charlie, please stop! No!

Jan: I couldn’t care less about “tinkerbelle” or whatever nauseating thing you’re calling her now.

John: You are so full of it.

Jan: Oh, I’m not. Everything is different. I’m gonna be a mother. My child is my focus, my only focus.

John: Boy, I’d like to believe you really mean that, but no.

Jan: You can believe it. Belle doesn’t even register on my radar anymore. She had one of her little tantrums and walked out on shawn. He’s gonna be free of her soon. Then he and I will raise our baby together. We’ll be a family.

John: Mm. Well, here’s your news flash. Shawn and belle have broken up before, but they always find their way back to each other.

Jan: [Sighs] Everything’s different now that I’m carrying shawn’s baby. You see, a child has a way of bonding the two people who created that little life.

John: Mm-mm. No baby is a miracle worker.

Jan: Worked for you, didn’t it? You and dr. Evans were having a dirty little affair. And then belle showed up and cemented your relationship.

John: Not the way it happened.

Jan: Well, it’ll happen for shawn and me. You’ll see.

Eric: Hey. If jan was on the loose, john, he would’ve already called you by now.

Belle: I know you’re probably right.

Eric: She has to play by different rules. She’s dealing with a high-risk pregnancy.

Belle: [Laughs] So she says. The woman’s been known to multitask in the past.

[Cell phone beeps] Oh. Ugh. Dad says he’s with jan at the house.

Eric: There, that’s one less thing you’re gonna have to worry about tonight.

Belle: Yes, now, if we can just get some news about allie and that poor baby.

Ciara: Charlie. Charlie, please, no. Charlie! Charlie, leave him alone!

Charlie: Say goodbye to hubby. Ah!

[Eerie music]

Ciara: You brought a baseball bat.

Tripp: I wasn’t gonna come here unarmed.

Ciara: Oh, thank god. Thank you.

Tripp: Are you–are you and the baby all right?

Ciara: Yeah. Yeah, we’re fine. It’s, uh– it’s ben.

Tripp: His pulse is steady, and his pupils are equal and reactive.

Ciara: What does that mean? Does that mean he’s gonna be okay?

Tripp: I think so. Wh–what’s happening with allie?

Ciara: She, uh– she ran towards st. Luke’s, and johnny ran after her.

Tripp: I’m gonna try to catch up with them.

Ciara: Okay.

Tripp: How are the three of you gonna get to the hospital? I mean, you can’t take that bike.

Ben: [Groaning]

Ciara: I–I have my phone. It’s okay. Please be careful, tripp.

Demon allie: After 25 years, we’ve come full circle.

[Ominous music]

[Eerie music]

[Suspenseful music]

[Eerie music]

Allie: What a fitting place for the grand finale. Okay, this is a freezer, not a time capsule.

Ben: Oh, my god. He is perfect.

Ciara: I’d like you to meet your son, beauregard brady weston.

Ben: Hey, bo. I’m your dad. And it’s very, very nice to meet you. I love you very much. He’s beautiful.

Ciara: I know.

Ben: You saved him.

Ciara: The three of us, baby, we’re a family now. We’re gonna protect each other forever.

[Tender music]

Jan: So I’ve already come up with names for the baby.

John: Huh.

Jan: What do you think of britney? If it’s a girl, that is.

John: Britney… spears?

Jan: Spears-brady. And then if it’s a boy… lucifer.

John: You want to name your kid lucifer?

Jan: Lucifer! It’s been such a long time.

Marlena: Uh, I–I’m not possessed anymore, jan.

Jan: Oh. That’s a bummer. He was like the best friend I ever had. Except for claire, of course.

John: Hey. What are you doing here?

Marlena: Can we talk privately?

[Cell phone beeps] It’s johnny.

John: He’s gonna need our help.

[Cell phones beep]

Belle: Johnny followed allie to st. Luke’S.

Eric: I’m gonna get my stuff and head over, okay?

Belle: Okay, but I’m coming with you.

Eric: I don’t think you should.

Belle: Allie is my niece.

Eric: Belle, the fewer the people, the less chance of the devil having a host body.

Belle: Okay, but I want to help.

Eric: Pray. Pray for allie’s soul. John, mom, and I, we can handle the rest, okay?

Belle: Okay. You be careful. Good luck.

Eric: I have a feeling we’re gonna need it.

Demon allie: So the good people of salem think that they’ve defeated me? They’ll feel differently once I’ve taken my revenge on all of them!

Tripp: Are you all right?

Johnny: Yeah, your, uh– your dead brother knocked my head against a gravestone, so–

Tripp: Yeah, well, he got his. Where’s allie?

Johnny: I think she went up to the old choir loft. I was gonna go after her, but I–I sent a text to my family for backup, so–

Tripp: Okay, well, you wait for them; I’m going up there.

Johnny: No, no way. I’m–I’m coming with you.

Demon allie: I may have lost my new vessel on earth, but I am going out in a blaze of glory. And I’m taking little alice caroline horton with me.

Johnny: Allie, stop!

Demon allie: [Sighs]

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Demon allie: You young men couldn’t have picked a better time to arrive. You’ll have a front row seat to the spectacle.

Johnny: I smell gasoline. This place is covered in it.

Tripp: You can’t set fire to st. Luke’S.

Demon allie: And why not? I’ve done it before, except this time, this town’s beacon of hope and light is going to burn to the ground. And hopefully take half of salem with it.

Johnny: Allie, look, you need to fight! It’s me, it’s johnny. Fight this guy! I know you know how to do it. He wants to destroy you. So unleash some of that famous anger on him.

Demon allie: You can save the histrionics. She’s given up.

Tripp: Allie, if you let him win, you’ll never see henry again. Okay, you have to will yourself to be free of him. Do it for your son.

Demon allie: You’re wasting–

Allie: Henry! I want to be with my little boy.

Demon allie: Trust me, that little boy’s better off without a mother like you were.

Tripp: That is bull, allie. You are a great mom.

Johnny: He needs you! I need you. Look, allie, just– just come back to us. Just come back to us.

Demon allie: Hm. It’s too late. You two treated her like the dirt under your feet.

Johnny: Allie, you and I, we know how to push each other’s buttons and we probably did it too often, but underneath it all, I love you. And you love me. So just come on, allie, come back to us.

Tripp: Fight that bastard!

Demon allie: Ugh!

Johnny: Allie?

[Groans] I’m okay.

Demon allie: You and your sister together are no match for my powers. So now, this church and all three of us are going down in flames.

Belle: Shawn.

Shawn: Hey.

Belle: Hey, I just got a text from johnny. He said that ben and ciara found the baby and allie.

Shawn: Yeah, yeah. Ciara called me. She said they’re taking him to the hospital to get him checked out.

Belle: Oh no. Are they worried about him?

Shawn: No, I just– I just think they’re trying to be safe.

Belle: Okay.

Shawn: Ciara doesn’t know what’s going with allie. Last time she saw her, she was headed towards st. Luke’S.

Belle: Well, johnny followed her and eric’s on his way there now. Is that where you’re headed?

Shawn: No, there’s cops all over st. Luke’S. Rafe told them to stand back and hold their fire. He said they don’t need me, so, um, honestly, I’m not gonna believe that this baby’s okay until I see it with my own two eyes.

Belle: Well, if it’s okay with you, I’d like to go.

Shawn: Yeah, yeah. Yeah, of course it’s okay. I mean, yeah, it’s great.

Kayla: Oh. I am so happy to see you two. Is that my new little grand-nephew?

Ben: It sure is.

Kayla: He’s just beautiful. Does he have a name yet?

Ciara: Yeah. It’s bo. Bo brady weston.

Kayla: Bo. Your dad would be so proud. I think he has grandpa bo’s eyes. Aww. You have been through such an ordeal the last 24 hours, haven’t you, baby? He looks like he’s just fine.

Ciara: Yeah, we hope so.

Ben: Yeah, but we want to hear that from you. Nobody else.

Kayla: I’ve got a room ready. We’ll check out our little angel. Let’s go.

Demon allie: Time to say your prayers, boys. No. No, it can’t be.

Eric: “The lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures.”

Demon allie: The only green pasture you’ll lie in is the cemetery!

Eric: “He leadeth me beside the still waters. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for thou art with me.” Once again, I cast out the demon!

Demon allie: I hope you’ve been practicing. Your last attempt at an exorcism only made me stronger. I took over the nearest warm body and wreaked havoc in your lives. Maybe this time I’ll try you on for size, father.

Marlena: No, you won’T. You are done tormenting me, tormenting my family. Go back to hell.

Demon allie: Such words from you, marlena? After everything we’ve been through together.

Marlena: You tried to destroy me, destroy my friends, destroy my family, destroy everybody in salem, and it failed! Because the people in this town love each other. They care about each other. And love will always trump evil!

Demon allie: You have always underestimated my power!

John: No, I think we have you sized up pretty well here. That’s why we’ve got you cornered right now!

Demon allie: You think a couple setbacks are going to stop me? You’re weak, stupid. I’m repulsed by you!

John: You go back to where you came from now. Leave our granddaughter’s body now, at once!

Demon allie: I was growing tired of her anyway. So I will leave her to you. But only after I’ve killed her in front of you.

Ahhh, not again.

Kayla: Well, I am delighted to tell you that your son is in perfect health.

Both: [Sigh]

Ciara: Thank goodness.

Ben: That is great news.

Ciara: Hi, baby.

Shawn: You mind if we join the party?

Kayla: No, please, come in.

Ciara: Come in, bro.

Shawn: Oh, my gosh. I was so worried about you.

Ben: You should’ve seen her at the cemetery. She was amazing.

Ciara: [Sighs] Yeah. But allie still needs our help.

Belle: Well, johnny texted all of us. Eric’s on his way to the church now. My parents are already there. And I think they’re gonna try an exorcism.

Shawn: Yeah, I spoke to rafe. He said the cops have the whole church surrounded.

Ciara: Let’s hope that works. I’m really scared for allie.

Kayla: We all are.

Belle: Yeah, but we got god on our side. Our family is really fierce when any one of us is threatened.

Marlena: Leave my granddaughter alone.

Demon allie: You should’ve let me stay within you, marlena. Now you’ll have allie’s death on your hands.

John: We will not let you hurt her.

Eric: That’s right. Let’s join hands. Our father…

All: Who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done.

Demon allie: I command you to stop this!

All: On earth as it is in heaven.

Marlena: Allie, sweetheart.

All: Give us this day, our daily bread.

Marlena: I know you’re in there, and I know you’re scared.

All: Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Marlena: Allie, I know what you’re going through. I’ve been there myself. I know what it’s like. But keep fighting. There are people here that love you. Keep on fighting.

All: And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.

Marlena: Draw from our strength. Come back to us. I know you can do that. I know you can, allie. Come on back.

Demon allie: Stop this insanity or I’ll snap her neck. I’ll make henry a little orphan right now.

Marlena: You won’t do that. Allie, we love you. We know you’re there. Come back to us.

Demon allie: So be it.

[Bones crunching]

[All yelling]

Tripp: No! Leave her alone! Take me instead!

Shawn: Let me see my nephew. Oh. Hey, buddy. Hey. You know, you’re probably gonna be the first kid in history to be taught to handle a motorcycle by his mom.


Ben: Yeah, not for a few more years.

Shawn: You know, your grandpa in heaven, he’d, uh– he’d be really happy right now. And we’re gonna tell you all about him when you get a little bit older. Want to meet your aunt belle? Look there.

Belle: Hi, little bo. Oh, we’re so happy to welcome you to our family. Remember to take a lot of pictures though, because the first year is full of changes, and you’re gonna want to remember all of them.

Shawn: Yeah, but make sure that you enjoy him.

Ciara: [Sighs] We absolutely will.

Belle: I remember when claire was that little.

Shawn: Yeah. I remember when she first started to walk. When she was standing there, holding onto that table and she just–she bravely just started walking. Actually, it was sort of a weird little jog.

Belle: Yeah. [Laughs]

Shawn: And she was, uh– she was pleased with herself.

Belle: Yeah, I remember that. Probably because we had it on video.

Shawn: Yeah, then we watched it about a thousand times.

[Cell phone ringing] Oh, here, I got to take this. Here. Here you go, buddy.

Ciara: Okay, come here.

Shawn: Um… uh, yeah, what’s up, jan?

Jan: I’m having a monster craving for a cheeseburger.

Shawn: Uh, I’m busy.

Jan: I thought you were off duty.

Shawn: I am, but I’m–

Jan: Please be sweet and do this for me. I can’t leave the house and I’m starving.

Tripp: I mean it. I mean it. You want to kill somebody? Kill me.

Marlena: Tripp, no, don’t!

Eric: No, we need to finish what we started.

Tripp: No. You heard him. He’s gonna kill her before you can finish the exorcism.

Demon allie: He’s right, you know.

Tripp: So come into me. Come into me, and let henry have his mom back. You want a soul? Take mine.

Demon allie: You mortals amaze me. You’re willing to sacrifice your life for some insipid little thing like allie horton?

Tripp: If that’s what you think about allie, then you aren’t as smart as you think you are.

Demon allie: You’re willing to die for someone who didn’t love you, who cheated on you. You were always her second choice, and I’m the one who’s stupid?

Tripp: I don’t care if allie would rather be with chanel. I still love her. She got to me like no one else ever did. She–she knew how to make me laugh and lighten up. And she made me feel not alone in this world.

Demon allie: And then she betrayed you.

Tripp: I still love her. And I always will. So come into me and I will gladly sacrifice my life if it means that she can live and raise henry. So come into me. Take me instead. I said come into me, you son of a bitch! Take me instead!

Johnny: Allie? Allie? Allie?

[Dramatic music]

With depression, you just feel…blah.

Ciara: How are you feeling, baby?

Ben: Better. I got knocked for a loop. Walking into that thing was like an electric fence. I can’t believe you just walked into that and got the baby.

Ciara: I cannot believe it either. And I can’t– I can’t even explain it to you, I really can’T. I just– I knew I needed to get to him. And I wasn’t sure if I was gonna be able to. And then there was this, like, warm, comforting light surrounding me. It made me feel strong. And the weird part is, I didn’t feel alone anymore. It was like–huh. Baby, please promise not to laugh at me when I say this.

Ben: Laugh? I would never laugh at you.

Ciara: It was like a– a presence.

Ben: What kind of presence?

[Air whooshing]

Ciara: Dad?

[Chimes tinkling]

Bo: Hey there, little one.

Kayla: Hope sounded so happy on the phone.

Belle: Yeah. Must’ve been bittersweet though, not having bo here to share in that.

Kayla: I think we’re all feeling that.

Belle: Yeah, right. I mean, I know shawn really misses his dad. I miss him too. Maybe he could’ve talked some sense into shawn.

Kayla: It seemed like the two of you were having a moment in there.

Belle: Yeah, I felt that too. And then he ran off to be with the mother of his new baby.

Jan: Want a french fry?

Shawn: Um, yeah. Yeah, sure. I–I haven’t eaten much today.

Jan: How’s ciara doing?

Shawn: She’s good. She’s good now that she’s back with her baby.

Jan: Did you see him?

Shawn: Mm-hmm. Yeah. They, um– they named him after my dad.

Jan: Aww. That’s so sweet. Maybe if our baby’s a girl we can name her after your mom. I had another name in mind, but hope is more meaningful.

Shawn: Uh, wouldn’t you want to name her after your mom, maybe?

Jan: Oh, god, no. She was a horrible person. God rest her soul. Besides, her name was gertrude. I am not sticking our child with a name like that. Can you imagine? Baby gert?

Shawn: Yeah. Yeah, probably not. You okay?

Jan: Yeah. I’m fine. I was just thinking how scared ciara must’ve been before she found her baby. Thank god she did.

Ciara: Ben, am i seeing things?

Ben: If you are, then I am too.

Ciara: Daddy?

Bo: [Echoing] In the flesh. Well, not exactly in the flesh. I’m the one who taught you how to remap a fuel injection system.

Ciara: It really is you. You came back.

[Baby cooing] You were at the cemetery.

Bo: Yeah. That was me.

Ciara: You saved his life. Honey, this is your granddad. Daddy, I named him bo.

Bo: Thank you for that.

Eric: Tripp? Can you hear me?

Demon tripp: Well, that was surprisingly easy. The boy didn’t even put up a fight. But it seems his sacrifice was for naught. Allie is still going to die, and by tripp’s own hands.

Marlena: No! God, no!

Tripp: No. I won’t let you hurt her.

John: Let me help you, son.

Tripp: There is no help. There’s only–

Marlena: Tripp! No! No!

[Heavy music]

> Lani: [Sighs] [Exhales, whispers] Okay… I was just trying to wound him, wasn’t I? Oh, okay. Why is he dead? Why is he dead?

Chanel: I just heard.

Lani: What? What did you hear?

Chanel: Eli’s awake. Is he okay?

Lani: Yeah.

Chanel: I’m so happy for you.

Lani: It’s, um… yeah, it’s wonderful. It’s the best thing ever.

Chanel: I also heard about tr is it true? Did mama really shoot him dead?

Kayla: You know, it’s–it’s just all the things are going around in this town. Now I’m just trying to get my head around the idea that lani’s birth father shot her husband and her mother shot her birthfather. I mean, it’s just–

Steve: Well, paulina confessed to killing tr coates.

Kayla: Well, you sound like you don’t think that’s what really happened.

Steve: Yeah. She seems more like a woman who uses words, not bullets. And you know, there’s something I didn’t tell you about the weapon they found at the scene.

Kayla: What’s that?

Steve: I don’t know how paulina could have gotten her hands on what looked like a police-issued weapon.

Shawn: Okay, I know I don’t have to tell you to keep me posted but I’m doing it anyway. All right, thanks.

Ben: Anything?

Shawn: No sign of allie or the car she was driving.

Ben: Then your guys damn well better be fanning off from the dimera crypt. Tony and anna, they found this pacifier there hours ago. Allie was in there with my son, and god only knows where she is now.

Ciara: [Gasps] Oh…oh, my little baby bo. So wish you were inside of me so I could keep you safe. Where are you right now? What is happening to you right now?

Demon allie: It’s friday the 13th, my child. What a fitting day to fulfill my plans for you.

[Baby cries] Oh, no, don’t cry, little one. It will all be over soon.

Susan: I just love this picture of you and your sister. Oh, when you guys were little kids, you used to be the bestest of friends.

Johnny: Yeah. Yeah, I know.

Susan: I wa–I want you to think back to that time. And I want you to try to find that connection again. Mmm? You know, think about what’s happening through your sister’s eyes. Take a look at this–just hold on to that, take a look. I want you to try one more time johnny, all right? Just hold my hand, hold my hand and take a deep breath, all right? And I just–I want you to think about your twin sister and how you used to share your mom’s body for nine months and the same crib. You know what? Your mama used to tell me that she used to find you hiding behind the furniture telling each other your secrets. Johnny, johnny honey, we need to find her. We need to find your sister before that devil makes her do something that she’ll never come back from. All right, you know what? We need to close our eyes right now. Just close our eyes. Okay, now we need to send her our love and our energy. We’re sending our loving and our energy to allie. She needs us right now, johnny.

Demon allie: You are quite the handful, aren’t you? I’m going to need help dealing with you. And I have just the person in mind. Charlie martino dale… I command thee rise from the depths of hell.

[Unsettling music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Johnny: Anything?

Susan: Uh-huh.

Johnny: Grandma, I’m concentrating as hard as I can, but I just–

Susan: Whoa. Wait, wait. I feel something. I feel something. Do you?

Johnny: I don’t know. Maybe it’s just– aah!

Susan: Oh!

Susan: “Even though I walk through the shadow of the valley of death, I fear no evil. I fear no evil, for you are with me.”

Johnny: Grandma, what–what’s that?

Susan: We almost did it, johnny. We almost reached allie. Oh gah! He broke the connection.

Johnny: He? The devil?

Susan: Hey…I mean, who else would have done this? Huh?

[Eerie music]

Charlie: Well, if it isn’t allie horton. I knew you couldn’t stay away forever.

Demon allie: I am not allie horton. I’m just taking control of her body.

Charlie: Mmm. Pretty good choice, in my opinion.

Demon allie: I did not summon you from eternal damnation to talk about your time on earth. You’ve been chosen by me.

Charlie: Me? Why?

Demon allie: I did battle in heaven. But god cast me out for an inferior being. I fell from grace into an eternal inferno. You too know what it means to be passed over, first by your mother and then by this woman you call allie. That makes you perfect for my purposes. Now, bow before me and swear your allegiance. I must know that you’re worthy to receive my instruction.

Charlie: What is it you desire of me, master?

Ciara: Hey, dad… it’s me. I, uh, I know you’re in heaven right now. But I also know you’re not the kind of guy to just sit back and do nothing when all hell breaks loose, so please… oh my god, I need your help right now. Please help me. Please look over your grandson. Please bring my little bo back to me.

[Soft footsteps] You?

Evan: We meet again.

Ben: You have to have some idea where allie is.

Shawn: You know everything that I do, all right? The techs didn’t find anything at the dimera crypt. We interviewed everyone at the dimera house. I mean, we set up roadblocks in a wide perimeter around it. I mean, not even the devil’s gonna be able to travel with a newborn.

Ben: Yeah? Well, he seems to be pretty damn good at getting help whenever he needs it. Plus evan frears is still on the loose.

Evan: I heard your little prayer to daddy bo. I don’t think he’s going to come for you this time.

Ciara: You have five seconds to get out of here or I’m going to start screaming.

Evan: I wouldn’t do that if I were you… or I’ll fix it so that you and daddy can be together forever.

Lani: I can’t speak about ray coates–it’s an open case.

Chanel: Okay, but mama was arrested. You–you can tell me if that’s true.

Lani: Yes, chanel. She was.

Chanel: And I also heard that tr was the one who shot eli. It wasn’t that drug dealer like you said. Is that true? Can you talk about that?

Lani: Yeah. You heard right. After eli woke up, he–he remembered–he remembered everything that happened.

Chanel: And he remembers tr shooting him? I can’t believe it. Mama thought he’d changed, and he’d been so good to her and he was helping her out with jules and carver and everything.

Lani: It makes me sick to think about that man going near my children. My biological father, he took care of one person and that was–that was ray coates. He hadn’t changed one bit. I don’t know, he–he lied to everybody. Everything out of his mouth was a damn lie. And he wasn’t the only one.

Chanel: What? Who else was lying?

Kayla: So you’re saying you think paulina’s lying about who killed coates? It could have been a policeman?

Steve: I don’t know.

Tripp: Hey.

Kayla: Hey.

Steve: Hey buddy.

Kayla: You just missed dinner–I can make you a plate.

Tripp: No, no, I’m good. I fixed myself a sandwich while I was staying with henry.

Kayla: Come on. A sandwich is not enough for you.

Steve: She’s right. You’ve been working your shifts at the hospital and you’re babysitting little henry over at nicole’s–come on.

Tripp: I’m good, good. Is there any news on ben and ciara’s baby?

Steve: I’d like to say that there’s been some progress, but no.

Shawn: That baby is my nephew–I’m not gonna rest until we get him back. I’m gonna call rafe–I’m gonna find out what he knows.

Ben: I pray there’s something, because I need to give ciara some good news when she wakes up. This is killing her.

Shawn: I know.

Evan: It’s amazing how sharp they keep these things.

Ciara: You were helping allie. Where’s my baby?

Evan: I know what it’s like not to know where your son is or if he’ll be all right. I’ve been living that way for years now because of you.

Ciara: That was because of you. You killed your baby’s mother, and you let ben take the fall for it.

Evan: And you rode to his rescue. Now you and a serial killer are living the dream while I rot away in a cell.

Ciara: You see, the difference is ben has changed, and you have not.

Evan: Your kid is better off where he is.

Ciara: With the devil? Hmm?

Evan: You think he’ll have a storybook childhood with ben weston for a father?

Ciara: Shut up and tell me where my baby is.

Evan: You don’t need to worry about your baby boy. You’re the one lying here helpless as a newborn.

Ciara: Ha. Helpless? Listen, I just gave birth. I didn’t have open heart surgery. And I wouldn’t be so sure about that if I were you. You and your little pal the devil tried to convince me that ben was dead. And I knew better, and I was right. How many times have you tried to kill us…and failed?

Evan: God was on your side in the past. I have my own backup now. The devil’s on my team, so I say you and i are pretty evenly matched.

Ciara: Aah!

Evan: I forgot, the necktie killer’s wife likes it rough.

Ciara: [Gagging]

Susan: Oh, dr. Marlena evans, you are a sight for sore eyes!

Marlena: I thought you might have heard something about allie and the baby.

Susan: Yeah, we got a message all right. But it was from beelzebub himself.

Marlena: What are you talking about?

Johnny: Grandma susan and i were looking at this picture of allie and me trying to make some kind of connection.

Susan: Right. Yeah. And then it got knocked plum out of our hands. It was like it was struck by lightning.

Johnny: Or we just dropped it.

Susan: That is not what happened, johnny, and you know it. This is–this is the dark one. This is the dark one, and he is saying, “this is war.” Know what? The almighty god, he sent–he sent us a weapon, johnny, sent us a weapon. So who cares? Who cares if satan cracked some glass? I mean, he can’t walk this earth as himself, I mean he needs a host body. And we–we belong here. We belong here because we are human beings and you know what? You…there’s no human being I’d rather have on my side than you, dr. Marlena evans. So get over here, johnny, come on, come on. No, get over here, all right. We’re go gonna drum up. We’re going to close our eyes and we are going to drum up all the love, all the love for alice caroline horton so that we can save her soul.

Johnny: We already tried this!

Marlena: And we’ll try it again. Because now there’s one more person here that really loves allie too.

Susan: All right.

[Baby crying]

Demon allie: I’ve grown weary of the external battles that accompany a possession– fighting off exorcists, the host’s loved ones, not to mention the internal struggles of the individual’s tortured soul. I’ve done that dance for millennia. And now it’s time to rest. To that end, this innocent newborn will be my vessel for his entire lifetime. I snatched him straight from his mother’s womb. He knows no other touch but mine. He doesn’t have the will or the bonds of love to restrain me. I will take up residence in this little one. And when he is a grown man, I shall make hell on earth through him.

Charlie: What can I do to assist you, master?

Demon allie: Your chance to be a father to a son was taken from you. I’m giving you the opportunity to raise another child. When the ritual is done, you will take this child and you will keep him as your own.

[Eerie off-key notes]

Susan: There’s three of us now, allie. Yeah, we’ve got your grandmama marlena with us. So for the sake that sweet poor, poor baby and to save your own soul, we’re asking god…to break the devil’s hold on your spirit so that you can hear us.

[Loud thud] Oh! Oh, oh, she’s here! She’s here! Johnny did you–do you see her?

Johnny: No, there’s nothing. It’s like I can feel her, but I can’t see where she is. She– she–is she gone?

Allie: [Echoing] I’m here.

Both: Oh! Get ready for more

Steve: Listen, the entire salem pd is looking for allie. But so far, no trace of her.

Tripp: Henry misses her so much–I mean, he made me read “the runaway bunny” over and over again.

Kayla: Oh, I love that book. The way the mother rabbit is gonna transform herself into a bunch of different forms so that she can go with her baby bunny if he decides to run away.

Tripp: No, allie’s not gonna do that for henry–she doesn’t care what happens to him.

Kayla: Oh, you know that’s not true.

Tripp: You’re right. I shouldn’t be talking about her like that. Not now.

Steve: Okay, so let’s talk about you. How you doing, son?

Susan: Oh.

[Wind howling]

Johnny: Did we all just hear that?

Susan: I did, I did! She’s here with us. Oh, dr marlena evans, talk to her, talk to her.

Marlena: Yes, yes, uh… allie… darling, it’s–it’s marlena. We’re all here, susan’s here and johnny is here. And we can hear you.

Allie: [Echoing] Grandma?

Marlena: Yes, we’re right here, darling.

Allie: I tried to fight him, but he’s–he’s too strong.

Marlena: It’s okay. It’s–we’re gonna help you fight him. We just have to know, darling, where are you?

Allie: He has the baby. Ciara and ben’s baby.

Johnny: Where are you right now?

Allie: At the cemetery. Charlie dale’s grave. Please come, or it will be too late…too late…late…

[Eerie off-key notes]

Demon allie: You are to keep a vigil so that the ritual is not disturbed by mere mortals. If they are to appear, this is the perfect place to bury them where they stand.

Ciara: [Gagging]

Demon allie: I summon all forces of evil to this ungodly place. Let the transference begin. The lows of bipolar depression

Chanel: Who else is lying?

Lani: Did I–did I say that?

Chanel: Yeah, you did.

Lani: I–chanel, I’m running–I’m running on fumes right now. Anything that comes–I can say anything. Anything can come out of my mouth right now.

Chanel: Okay. I’m sorry. I was-I was pumping you for information.

Lani: No, it’s fine. Paulina is your mother too, and you deserve to know. Why did you tell him that you shot tr?

Paulina: You hush. I know what I’m doing.

Chanel: Know what? Lani?

Lani: I was thinking about that–that beth. Beth howard is her name. She–she was the one who swore that tr, he–he didn’t use drugs around her and he didn’t hit her.

Chanel: And she got a part in that movie.

Lani: Yeah. Maybe he gave her that role to keep her quiet or he threatened her. I don’t know. She–she came by eli’s hospital room one night and said that she has something to tell me but–I don’t know. She must have been scared.

Chanel: I wish she would have told you. Then mama wouldn’t be in this mess.

Tripp: I don’t know what there is to say. I didn’t keep it a secret how I felt about allie. I-I loved her. And trusted her. She knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her. But she still couldn’t tell me how she felt about chanel. She couldn’t tell me that she cheated on me.

Kayla: I know how much that hurt you when you found out.

Tripp: I’m fine. I’m dealing with it.

Steve: You sure about that? Listen, buddy, I know you’re tough. And I respect that. But from one tough guy to another, you don’t have to keep it inside and pretend that this isn’t bothering you. Not around here you don’T. Just talk to us. Okay? You’re not gonna feel better until you do.

Johnny: I gotta get to the cemetery.

Marlena: Not by yourself you’re not.

Johnny: Look, allie’s always making a big deal about how tough she is. You heard how scared she was just now. She needs help. She’s my sister, and I’m going to get her.

Susan: Johnny, the devil can get you again. Johnny: I don’t care!

Marlena: We care!

Johnny: I’ll be damned if I let him keep allie one more second or hurt that baby. You guys call ben, call the cops, tell them where to go.

Ben: Tell me where my kid is right now or I swear–

Evan: God is not coming to rescue you. Don’t you know that by now? He doesn’t dirty his hands with guys like you and me. We’re both going to hell. You know that. I’m just gonna make sure I send you there first.

Demon allie: By the sins of his father and the virtue of his mother, from this mortal child, I take his uncorrupted soul as my own.

[Baby crying]

Evan: Say hi to jordan for me.

[Baby crying]

Charlie: Uh… is it…done?

Demon allie: I’m leaving this corporeal form.

Charlie: Master? Question, what do you want me to do with allie once you’ve left her body?

Demon allie: I have no use for her anymore. Do what you want.

Johnny: You’re not gonna lay a finger on her. We do it every night.

Tripp: You guys know how I grew up, you know, I felt like I didn’t belong anywhere. You two found me and you took me in and if you hadn’t done that, I don’t know who I would be now. I know I put you through hell there for a while but… here we are.

Kayla: Here we are.

Tripp: And I’m saying all that because… because I thought that I was gonna have what you two have.

Kayla: We know that.

Tripp: Yeah. I saw allie and me raising henry together, you know, and… maybe having kids of our own, you know, kids that would know from the jump that they were wanted. But right after I asked allie to marry me, like the next minute johnny walked in and told me about her and chanel.

Steve: That wasn’t johnny. It was the devil’s work.

Tripp: I can’t even–why does it matter why he told me? It was the truth. Feels weird talk about this now. I know what allie must be going through. I mean, I don’t know, but I can imagine. I just wish that she had been honest with me. I took care of her after she figured out what charlie did to her. She knew how I felt about her and henry. Why couldn’t she just level with me? Now I wouldn’t have made all those plans. I mean, that–that’s what keeps me up at night is all those damn plans and… I thought it was gonna be her and I against the world. I-I thought that now that she had my love I thought–

Kayla: You thought that nobody could ever hurt her again.

Demon allie: You’re not welcome in this circle johnny. I’m not happy with all your attempts to interfere with my plans.

Johnny: Yeah? Well, that’s too freakin’ bad.

Demon allie: How reckless you are. Don’t you know you’re playing with fire?

Johnny: You underestimated the love between my sister and me. You don’t get the family that I come from. My two grandmas can take you on.

Demon allie: Ha ha ha ha ha! Those two god-fearing harpies? Don’t make me laugh.

Johnny: Allie. Allie, it’s me. I’m here. I’m–I’m myself again, you can trust me, but you have to fight now. Okay?

Demon allie: This is the resistance I was telling you about. You know what to do.

Charlie: Yes, I do.

Johnny: I’ve seen your picture. You’re the pig that raped my sister. And I wanted to kill you when I found out about it. Looks like I finally got my chance.

Shawn: You sure you’re both okay?

Ciara: Yeah, we will be.

Ben: Yeah, as soon as this bastard spills his guts about the devil’s plans for our baby.

Evan: What? You think you’re gonna be able to stop him? Don’t make me laugh.

Ben: I stopped you, didn’t I? Huh?

Evan: You’ll be too late. By now the devil’s the proud owner of your son’s immortal soul.

Marlena: Ben? Ben, it’s marlena. I need you to call me. It’s urgent. Maybe we should go help johnny.

Susan: Of what help would we be?

Marlena: I don’t know.

Susan: This is johnny’s fight. Yeah, let’s just lea–let him and the police take on the devil.

Evan: The devil’s not going to kill your son. He’s going to be your son. Never heard of the demon seed? Once the devil has become one with little bo, he’ll be unstoppable. The kid was probably born with the brady charm and weston taste for blood. Now he’s gonna be raised from within by the guy that wrote the book on wickedness. So you fixed it so I couldn’t see my kid. Now you’re gonna have ringside seats, while your son walks through life making the whole world miserable.

Shawn: Stop! Listen to me–

Ben: Where’s my baby? Where’s my damn baby?

Shawn: He’ll say anything right now, stop.

Ben: Where is he?

Shawn: Stop.

Ben: Where’s my baby?

Evan: All I know is the time. Ha. Not the place. The ritual of transference is happening right now.

Shawn: Listen to me. We’ll get more out of him down the station. Do not give up hope. We’re gonna find baby bo.

Evan: Like hell you will.

[Ciara sobbing] My a1c stayed here,

Chanel: I wanna see mama.

Lani: She’s going through the booking process right now and can’t have visitors for a while–maybe tomorrow?

Chanel: Seems like I can’t do a damn thing to help the people I care about, especially when they’re in big trouble.

Lani: I’m guessing you’re talking about allie. I heard that she ran off with ciara’s new baby.

Chanel: I don’t even know who allie is anymore.

Lani: You’ve been through a lot too.

Chanel: Yeah. Those twins really did a number on me.

Lani: I’m so sorry, chanel.

Chanel: Yeah. Well, I guess now that I know it wasn’t them doing it all, treating me so badly…

Lani: I hope that it helps you.

Chanel: It does a little.

Lani: I need to get back to the hospital and see eli. But do you wanna come with me? You can say hi to him.

Chanel: Yeah, sounds great.

Lani: Okay.

Chanel: Yeah. You know, this having a sister thing…it’s nice.

Lani: It is. Come on.

Tripp: No matter how I feel about allie, I don’t want anything bad to happen to her.

Steve: Well, the two of you never had a chance to straighten things out.

Tripp: I don’t think anything will ever get straightened out.

Kayla: Even so, I mean, you might have turned out to be friends.

Tripp: I don’t know about that either.

Kayla: I just wonder what would have happened with the two of you if the devil hadn’t played around with your lives.

Steve: Chanel was a happily married woman. She made her choice–allie knew that.

Kayla: Yeah, and maybe it allowed allie to fully commit to you. Well, it’s a possibility, don’t you think?

Tripp: It’s kind of hard to think about what might have been. Chanel and I are like friends now. I never saw that happening.

Kayla: You see, because people change and feelings change.

Tripp: I was telling chanel that I think maybe life has gotten be too much for allie. And that was before I knew about all this devil business.

Steve: She’s had it really rough.

Kayla: Yeah. She had her rapist’s baby. And she’s been a good mother to him.

Tripp: Allie’s life turned sour the night she crossed paths with charlie. I thought I was gonna make things right for her again. Kind of arrogant when you think about it–I mean, who am I, captain wonderful?

Steve: I think you’re pretty great.

Tripp: Why’d this have to happen to her?

Steve: I don’t know, son. But no matter how hurt and angry you feel right now–

Kayla: I think part of you still loves her and you wanna help her.

Tripp: I’m just scared to death that she’s in a place where nothing I do now is gonna make a difference.

[Beep beep]

Ben: That’s my phone. Must’ve fallen out of my pocket when I was fighting evan.

Ciara: Baby, there it is.

Ben: It’s dr. Evans. She called like six times. She must know something.

[Phone rings]

Marlena: Oh! Ben, thank god you called.

Ben: Hey, what’s going on?

Marlena: We found allie. She’s heading for the cemetery.

Ben: What about the baby?

Marlena: I don’t know for sure.

Ben: All right, thank you. She knows where allie is.

Ciara: Hey, hey, not without me, you’re not.

Ben: You just had a baby.

Ciara: Yeah, and I’m gonna be there when we save him and save allie. Now help me find my clothes.

Charlie: You’re not gonna get away. You see, the thing is I’ve had lot of time to work out. Nobody told me hell had such an awesome gym.

Demon allie: Well done, my loyal servant.

Charlie: What now, master? Should I…finish him off? Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Shawn: Don’t get too comfortable. The van from statesville’s on its way. You gonna love solitary.

Evan: Ha. I’m gonna sit there and think about you and ben, ciara, your families… this whole damn town as you look on helplessly while your nephew and the rest of this rotten world all go straight to hell.

Tripp: Wow, I guess you’re right. I was really holding a lot of that in.

Kayla: I’m glad you opened up to us.

Steve: Hey, we’re gonna find allie and we’re gonna help her.

Kayla: Mm-hmm. And she will be saved because there are so many people who love allie horton.

Tripp: And I’m one of those people. Even after everything that’s happened, I’m still in love with her.

Marlena: Heavenly father, please watch over our grandchildren tonight. Bring them home safely to us. And deliver them from evil.

Charlie: Talk about a glass jaw.

Demon allie: Once the ritual of transference is completed, you can get rid of him and the sister.

[Engine revving]

Ciara: You get the hell away from my son.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Tony: Anna? Where on earth are you going?

Gwen: You want to bust me out of here?

Ava: Hey, we did it before when we helped kristen escape.

Gwen: [Sighs] What’s the catch?

Ava: There isn’t one. Look, I just– look, I know I let you down, and I’m trying to make up for it. Trying to be a friend. So you in?

Sarah: Xander?

Xander: Sarah, it’s– is it really you?

Sarah: Yeah, of course it’s me. Mom? What’s going on?

Maggie: Your voice, it–it–it’s normal. Oh, sarah, my darling. Does this mean you’re all right?

Sarah: Yeah, I’m fine, mom. Why–why do you look like you’re about to cry? Why are you both looking at me like that?

Xander: Because we– because we’re just so happy. So very happy. It worked, maggie.

Maggie: Yes.

Xander: It worked.

Maggie: Oh!

[Sarah chuckles]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Xander: Look at her, maggie. She–she’s herself again.

Maggie: Thank god. Thank god we gave her that antidote.

Sarah: I–what are we talking about? An antidote?

Xander: We’ll explain everything very soon, I– I promise. But–

Sarah: What’s going on? Why– why am I in a hospital?

Xander: You were drugged, but we gave you an antidote, and thank god it worked.

Sarah: Drugged by who? Why? What?

Maggie: You know, it’s a long story, and we’ll get around to it at some point.

Xander: But all that matters right now is that you, darling sarah…

[Sighs] You’re with us again. And you’re…yourself. And we’re just– we’re just so grateful. So very grateful.

Maggie: Yes.


Gwen: So first you throw me under the bus, practically ruining my life, and now you are, oh, so eager to help me. I mean, what am I missing here, ava?

Ava: Gwen, I want to help you because I threw you under the bus. I told you, I feel guilty. I feel guilty because, you know, you’re the one paying the price when the person who should be behind bars is kristen.

Gwen: Kristen is not the one who helped me switch out the antidote that would have brought back sarah. I did that all on my own. And for what? I’m– xander and I are over now anyway.

Ava: I’m sorry about that. But I get it. I mean, if anyone knows, you do, that I’ve certainly done a lot worse to hang on to the men that I love.

Gwen: Wonderful. You win that contest, okay? Now get the hell out of here and take your offer with you.

Ava: Okay, gwen, I think you need to be realistic here, all right? Gwen, you got–you got– you got no lawyer, you got no fiancé, you got no family to help you. All you got is me. But hey, if you want to languish here in prison all alone, it’s your choice.

Anna: [Small laugh] You know, darling, I– I was going through my closet and I realized that I have so many beautiful clothes that I never wear, so I just thought I’d run them down to the community center.

Tony: Ah, in a suitcase?

Anna: Is that a problem?

Tony: No, but jumping bail is. Listen, anna, I know you’re scared because your trial starts tomorrow. But that doesn’t mean you’re going to be convicted.

Anna: Oh, the heck it doesn’t, tony. Trask is out for blood. The judge is in victor’s pocket. And maggie–maggie is hellbent on making me pay for what I did to sarah.

Tony: But you just can’t take off like that.

Anna: I can and I will. I have no choice. I’m going on the lam, and there’s nothing you can do to stop me. Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Tony: You were just going to leave without even saying goodbye?

Anna: Only to avoid implicating you. Tony you can’t be caught aiding and abetting a criminal.

Tony: Oh, you’re not a criminal, anna. You’re my wife. I want to help you.

Anna: I don’t deserve your help, tony. You kept telling me that sarah horton was no threat to our marriage. That she wasn’t really renee. But I didn’t listen.

Tony: Oh, for god’s sake, listen now. You can’t just leave out that door.

Anna: Tony, I have turned sarah into…a rutabaga. And it’s now time for me to pay the piper.

Maggie: Xander… I am regretting that I didn’t consent to sarah getting the antidote sooner.

Xander: No, maggie, don’t do that to yourself. No regrets. Hey, you worried it was too risky. You’d every right to be worried under the circumstances. But sarah’s back. That’s all that matters now.

Maggie: Mmm. I have to go.

Xander: What?

Maggie: Now. There’s something I need to take care of.

Xander: Right now?

Maggie: Well, sarah’s okay. And kayla could be in there with her for a while. And this would be a good time. Call me if you need me. I promise I won’t be long.

[Soft music]

[Elevator bell dings]

Gwen: Let’s say… that I did take you up on your offer. What happens with your deal with trask?

Ava: Nothing. I held up my end of the bargain. You escape, it’s not my problem.

Gwen: Unless the cops find out that you helped me.

Ava: [Scoffs] What, rafe hernandez and his merry band of idiots? Please. Anyway, I do–I don’t see you having any better offers, so– time’s running out. Listen… if you decide to call me, here’s my number. It’s a burner phone. And remember, clock’s ticking.

[Dramatic music]

My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

[Phones ringing]

Jack: Gwen.

Gwen: [Sniffles] Jack– I’m–I’m sorry, I’m a bit surprised to see you. I–I thought– I thought you’d washed your hands of me for good.

Jack: I know. I led you to believe that. And truthfully, I’m sad, angry, and appalled when I think of what you’ve done in the past. And I’m sure that you know that when you hurt abigail, you hurt me. But…

Gwen: But?

Jack: You’ve had a lot of pain in your life. And I believe that’s the reason that you’ve caused a lot of pain. And I want to help you stop– stop doing that. Because–[Inhales unsteadily] In spite of it all, you’re my daughter.

[Sighs] You’re a part of me… my heart.

Gwen: [Sighs] That’s–that’s very kind.

Jack: You have it in you to do the right thing, and you know it. You proved it when you told xander where to find that antidote.

Gwen: [Sniffles]

[Sighs] It–it w–it was the least I could do. That’s an understatement, obviously. I– I hope it works. I do, I hope she recovers.

Jack: I hope so too. And I–I– I believe that you can recover too from this compulsion for revenge, and this need to get what you want, the consequences be damned.

Gwen: Are you saying that you have faith in me then, do you?

Jack: I do. And I care about you. I always have, I always will. Which is why I asked justin to represent you. And he’s on board. He’s agreed to take your case.

Gwen: Oh.

Anna: I’m sorry, tony. My mind is made up. I have to leave. So I’m sorry, but this is the end of the road for us.

Tony: Really? That’s so sad. I–it’s heartbreaking.

Anna: I know, I agree. But I really have to go. I mean, I have miles to go before I even sleep.

Tony: Oh. Well, anna, you don’t really think I was going to let you flee?

Anna: You have no choice, tony.

Tony: Oh?

Anna: Goodbye, tony. I will love you forever.

Tony: Mm. Anna–

Anna: Oh!

Maggie: Going somewhere?

Anna: [Laughs nervously] I have a very important errand to run.

Maggie: Well, I need to talk to you.

Anna: I’m sorry, maggie. It’ll have to wait.

Maggie: Anna… I really think you’ll want to hear this now. I know your trial starts tomorrow. And I’ve decided to drop the charges.

Kayla: Okay.

Xander: Uh, how are we, uh… how are we doing in here?

Kayla: Ah, well, you know, we’re all done. And I would say I am happy to report that physically and cognitively, sarah seems to be just fine.

Sarah: Sarah is just fine. So… does anyone want to tell me what drug I was injected with?

Xander: You didn’t tell her?

Kayla: Um, I didn’t– I didn’t have a chance.

Sarah: Okay, well, I don’t need to be handled with kid gloves. I’m a doctor, I can take it.

Kayla: You were given a dangerous psychotropic.

Xander: By kristen dimera.

Sarah: Kristen dimera?

Kayla: Yes, and it caused a lot of damage. Delusions, hallucinations.

Xander: You haven’t been yourself for quite some time. But…[Sighs] You’re back to normal now. Thank god.

Sarah: Okay, um… well, I have a lot of questions. Um, but for now, I will just say thank you to both of you for taking care of me.

Xander: Well, having you back is–well, it’s all the thanks we need.

Kayla: Definitely.

Sarah: Okay, well, since my exam, uh, went well, could we get the ball rolling on getting me released?

Kayla: Well, I would like to do a few new scans. Just to make sure that everything’s fine. Why don’t I just check with radiology and make sure that they can see you right now. Okay? All right, good. All righty, huh?

Xander: Oh, sarah.

Sarah: [Giggles]

Xander: [Sighs] There are no words to express what it means to be here with you now. And you’re looking so beautiful. Just being sat next to you, my– my heart is beating so hard.

Sarah: Oh, wow. It sure is.


Xander: God, I missed you so much.

Sarah: You don’t have to miss me. I’m right here. And it seems like it’s been a very long time since I’ve gotten to do this.

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Xander: I just can’t believe it. It’s just so amazing to have you back in my arms again.

Sarah: [Giggles] For me it was–felt like yesterday.

Xander: I wish. I’ve been wishing. For this, for you. Ever since you left me, I– god, I can’t wait to take you home.

Kayla: Well, good news. Radiology will see you now.

Sarah: Oh.

Xander: Um, do you know how long she’ll be?

Kayla: No, I don’t know. But I know how anxious you are to get her out of here, so I will let you know as soon as I know something.

Xander: Thank you. And I’ll see you in a bit.

Sarah: I can’t wait.

Xander: [Sighs] Me neither. I’ll, uh–I’ll text maggie. Keep her in the loop as well.

Anna: You’re dropping the charges? Why?

Maggie: If gwen hadn’t switched the vials, what you did to sarah would have brought her back to us that very day. So what you did, well, it wasn’t–it wasn’t terrible at all, as it turned out.

Anna: Oh, maggie, it was terrible. Truly terrible. I was thoughtless and reckless– well, I’M… I am truly, sincerely sorry for what I put you through. And I’m so grateful that your daughter is going to be okay. Thank you for telling us. And for dropping the charges. I can’t even tell you how grateful I am.

Tony: Same here.

Maggie: Well. [Laughs] Okay, then I think I better get back to the hospital.

Tony: Oh, please give sarah our best.

Maggie: Will do. Take care.

Anna: Thank you. Oh, my god. I can’t believe it, I’m free.

Tony: So you glad you didn’t go on the run?

Anna: [Laughs] Oh, I’m so glad.

Jack: If you plead guilty, to the lesser charges, justin thinks he can get your sentence knocked down to five years.

Gwen: [Gasps] Five years?

Jack: That’s nowhere near what you’d be facing if a jury found you guilty. I’d say it’s a gift considering what you’ve done.

Gwen: Yeah, you’re right. But melinda trask doesn’t really give out gifts, especially to the likes of me.

Jack: You’d be saving the city the expense of a trial. If you agree to all this, it could be settled very quickly.

Gwen: In other words, I could be going to prison very quickly.

Jack: Gwen… this is not the end. If you make smart choices, good choices, it could be a whole new beginning. If–if you decide–[Sniffles] To accept, give justin a call. But don’t wait too long.

Gwen: Dad? Sorry, I know I don’t– I don’t have a right to call you that anymore. I just, um… I wanted to say thank you.

Jack: [Weeps]


Gwen: Oh, god. Lemons.

Anna: Oh.

[Glasses clink]

Tony: To your freedom.

Anna: [Laughs] Ah. I really am sorry, tony. I’m sorry for everything. Throughout this whole ordeal, I’ve been thinking of nothing but myself. I wasn’t ever thinking about you.

Tony: Oh, you thinking of me constantly.

Anna: Yes, but in a possessive and childish way. I know now that you only went along with sarah’s delusions because facing the truth would have been too hard for her. I was so mad with jealousy, I–I couldn’t see that.

Tony: Oh. Anna, I know that I hurt you as well, but I felt I had to help sarah. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t able to help renee all those years ago… the way her life ended so tragically, and I couldn’t stop it. I know you may not want to hear this, but… I did love her.

Anna: [Sniffles] I think that we should go down to the crypt and pay our respects to renee.

Tony: You’d do that?

Anna: For you, darling, I would do anything.

Tony: [Chuckles] Oh, thank you, anna. Thank you.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Kayla: Okay, there you go.

Maggie: Xander texted me. He said he’d be back soon.

Kayla: Great.

Sarah: Well, just– can’t we just go home?

Kayla: Well, I want to get those test results back. In fact, I’ll go to radiology right now and, um, see how it’s going.

Maggie: Thanks.

Sarah: Thank you, kayla.

Kayla: Yeah, yeah.

Sarah: [Chuckles]

Maggie: Okay. Ooh.

Sarah: [Groans] You have no idea how bad I want to get out of this gown. And take a shower in my own bathroom.

Maggie: Mmm.

Sarah: Speaking of bathrooms, uh, I used it earlier and I– and I caught a glimpse of this. What’s with these pigtails? I haven’t worn my hair like this since I was a little girl.

Maggie: Well, um, it has gotten long.

Sarah: I’ve been here a while. Okay, well I hate these.

Maggie: Well, I could cut them.

Sarah: Really?

Maggie: Sure, why not? I used to cut your hair all the time when you were a little girl.

Sarah: Yeah, that would be fun, and a little rebellious. I like my hair so much better when it’s short. So does xander.

Gwen: [Sighs] Xander.

[Phone rings]

Xander: I, uh, saw jack outside. Told him the good news.

Gwen: [Exhales] Wh– what good news?

Xander: The antidote worked.

Gwen: That’s good. That’s really good. I’m glad you told me that.

Xander: I wanted to thank you, gwen.

Gwen: I’m really glad it worked out.

Xander: So what’s, um– what’s going on with you now?

Gwen: Oh. [Exhales] Um…my father hired justin to represent me. He says that he can get my sentence down to five years if I plead guilty to the lesser crimes.

Xander: And are you gonna do it?

Gwen: I don’t know yet.

[Sighs] But I do know this is probably– this is probably the last time you and I are gonna see one another. So there’s something I would like to say to you. With depression, you just feel…blah.

Maggie: What do you think?

Sarah: Mom, it’s perfect.

Maggie: [Chuckles lightly] You look like your old self again.

Sarah: I feel like my old self. Thank you.

Maggie: You’re very welcome. I don’t want to let go. I just, uh, imagine losing you again.

Sarah: I’m not going anywhere.

Maggie: Okay. I’m gonna hold you to that. Oh, sarah.

[Sighs] My darling girl. Oh, I’ve missed you so much. How I love you.


Gwen: Do you remember when we first met?

[Clicks tongue] I couldn’t bloody stand you.

Xander: That’s what you want to tell me?

Gwen: No, there’s more, obviously. In the beginning, I found you insufferable. You were arrogant, annoying… what an obnoxious nob you were.

[Chuckles] Then I saw another side to you. A softer side. You weren’t just some thug with no conscience and no soul. You felt. And you felt deeply. You felt deeply for me.

Xander: Look, gwen, I–

Gwen: God, you were so good to me, xander. Really, you were, you– you made so many sacrifices to protect me from my lies. Let’s see, what was there, um, disposing of a body, you went to jail, gave up $1 million, all to protect a woman so pathetic–

Xander: You’re not pathetic, gwen.

Gwen: Fine–a woman so desperate to have a relationship with her father that she just became this… hurricane of destruction. You see…

[Sniffles] When you spend your whole life deprived of any affection, and…someone walks into your life and genuinely cares about you–

Xander: You’ll do anything to hold on to them.

Gwen: You get it. You get it. You were the only one who ever got it. You are the only one who’s ever understood me. No one has ever been there for me the way that you have before.

[Sighs] And I blew it. I blew it all to hell.

[Sniffles] I mean, you gave me your heart, didn’t you xander? And, um…god, I was so afraid of losing it that I absolutely crossed the line. I did. I kept you from the woman that you truly loved. The woman who inspired you to be a better man. The woman who helped you open that beautiful heart of yours.

[Sniffles] I was wrong. And I will always, always regret it.

[Sniffles] But do you know that through… all of my mistakes… with everything that is has cost me…

[Sighs] I also received the most wonderful gift. It’s one that you gave me. The gift of love.

[Laughs] You made me realize that I am worthy of love. And more importantly…

[Sighs] You made me see that I am also capable of loving someone else too. So…

[Inhales unsteadily] My engagement ring. This belongs to you now. Although I’m really gonna miss wearing it.


[Exhales heavily]

[Sniffles] I wish you happiness, xander. I do. I wish happiness for you and sarah.

Xander: Thank you, gwen. I, um, I should get back to the hospital. So, um… I guess this is goodbye.

Gwen: [Mouthing] Yeah.

[Sniffles] Goodbye, xander.

[Emotional music]


Tony: Are you sure you want to go inside? I mean, with all that’s gone on here recently.

Anna: Oh, darling, I think the worst is behind us. I mean, ben and johnny are both free, your evil twin andre is, well, a pile of dust. And the devil is on the lam. So I think we have nothing to be afraid of. I think we should go in, do what we came to do, and then after that we can go back to our champagne and back to our celebration.

[Keys jingling]

Tony: Shall we?

Anna: Mm-hmm.

I’ve got moderate to severe

plaque psoriasis.

Gwen: [Sighs]

[Line ringing]

[Phone beeps]

Ava: Well, that was fast.

Gwen: You told me I don’t have much time.

Ava: Well, and I take it since you’re calling me that you decided to say yes.

Gwen: Actually, it’s a no. I wanted to phone you and thank you. Your offer has helped clarify some things for me. And, um… for the first time in my life, I’m going to take responsibility for what I’ve done. Anyway…it’s only five years in prison.

Ava: Five years. That’s not nothing.

Gwen: I have a chance to make things right. And if I take it…

[Sighs] I don’t know, I might actually have a chance of having a family. And there’s no guarantees, of course, but… if I make good choices, if I make smart choices, then this could be a new beginning for me.

Ava: Well, good luck to you, gwen.

Gwen: Thank you. I’m gonna need it.

Xander: Your hair!

Sarah: [Giggles] Mom cut it.

Maggie:[Chuckles] What do you think? It turned out fine, huh?

Xander: Oh, sarah, you look so beautiful.

Sarah: Thank you. Did you happen to see kayla when you came in?

Xander: I did. Yeah, she said she’d let us know as soon as you can leave.

Sarah: Ugh, I’m so tired of waiting.

Xander: Well, is there anything I can get for you? Something to eat?

Sarah: No. No, I’m not hungry. But there is one thing that I want desperately.

Xander: Name it.

Sarah: I want to see my baby.

[Uneasy music]

Anna: [Sighs] Well, rest in peace, renee. I know–I know it’s rather ironic, considering I never gave you a moment’s peace while you were alive. But despite everything that happened between us, I am sorry that you were taken from this world so soon, and… I do hope that you’re in a better place now. Mmm.

Tony: That was lovely, anna.

Anna: Your turn.

Tony: Are you sure?

Anna: Mmm. You can say anything you want. I’ll give you a moment.

Tony: Thank you. Hmm. Character, I’m told, reveals itself in times of adversity. We show our true colors when things in life get difficult. And they were difficult for us, weren’t they? What could be worse than finding out that the man that you were planning to marry was your brother? But you didn’t break things off because you wanted to hurt me, you broke things off because you wanted to protect me, to spare me… even though you had to carry the pain of that secret all alone. But that was the kind of person you were, renee. It may be too little, too late, but I did love you, deeply. And I’ll never forget you.

Anna: There must have been some good in renee for you to have loved her.

Tony: Thanks for saying that, anna. And, also, thank you for suggesting we– we come here.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Tony: But then… that’s why you are the love of my life.

[Both chuckle]

Anna: As you are mine, my darling tony.

Tony: Well, I think we’ve finished what we came to do. So shall we?

Anna: Ooh. What is that? A pacifier.

Tony: Where did that come from?

Anna: [Gasps] Oh, my goodness. This must be ciara’s baby’S. Allie must have brought him here.

Tony: But where are they now?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Leo: Hmm. Oh, how could I forget?

[Dramatic music]

Sonny: Good morning, uncle vic.

Victor: What’s good about it?

Sonny: [Chuckles] So… any news on ciara and the baby?

Victor: Not yet. But if rafe and that brother of hers can whip that department into shape, I may get some soon.

Sonny: And what about maggie? Didn’t she bring sarah home from that florida clinic last night? Is sarah doing any better?

Victor: No answers. Not until I get mine.

Sonny: [Sighs softly]

Maggie: Sarah, you barely touched your breakfast.

Sarah: It’s yucky.

Maggie: Well, are you thirsty? Do you want some juice?

Sarah: Mm-mm. “I love you, sarah.” “I love you, eric.”


Xander: Knock, knock. Is it all right if I come in?

Maggie: Of course, of course.

Sarah: You.

Xander: Yes, me. I heard you just got back from florida. Did you have a nice time?

Sarah: No. Mommy promised that we could go to universal studios, but instead, we’re back in boring, old salem.

Xander: Well, I’m sorry you didn’t get to go, but it’s good that you’re back in boring, old salem. It’s important.

Sarah: Why is it important?

[Sighs] You don’t still think that I’m gonna marry you one day, do you? Because that’s cuckoo.

Xander: No, I’m– I’m not marrying anyone.

Sarah: Well, I am. I’m gonna marry eric. And I’m gonna be mrs. Eric brady.

[Elevator bell rings]

Kayla: Abigail. Oh, my gosh. What a surprise to see you.

Abigail: I was hoping to see you. Congratulations on being reinstated.

Kayla: Oh, well, thank you. I have to say, I was surprised when seth asked me back, but thrilled.

Abigail: As is the rest of the staff here, I’m sure.

Kayla: Well, I don’t know about that exactly, but I was warmed by how many coworkers welcomed me back. But I’m sure you’re not here to talk about me, so what’s up?

Abigail: There is another reason. You know, aunt kayla, I cannot stop worrying about sarah. I know maggie brought her back from florida.

Kayla: Yeah, we admitted her last night.

Sarah: Is there any change?

Kayla: No, I’m sorry. There’s not. She’s the same as when she left. But I have run some scans, and I’m waiting to see the results and find out what we’re up against.

Abigail: Well, good news is, she’s in the best possible hands. I mean, thank god you’re back and burns came to his senses.

Kayla: Thank you. Like I said, I am thrilled. But I don’t like being indebted to such an unpleasant person.

Abigail: I hear you, ’cause right now, I am indebted to ava vitale.

[Dramatic music]

Gwen: Good morning, ava.

Ava: How’d you get in here? What are you doing here?

Gwen: What’s the matter? Aren’t you glad to see your old chum? Look familiar? It’s not for show, either. This thing is locked and loaded and full of crazy juice.

Ava: What are you gonna do with that?

Gwen: Oh, come on. You’re a clever girl. I’m sure you can figure that out. Besides, it’s thanks to you that xander knows that I gave this to sarah, so I thought perhaps you would like a taste of your own medicine!

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ava: No, no! Get away from me!

Jake: What? What? Ava, what’s going on? You okay?

Ava: She’s not here. Oh, thank god. Oh, thank god she’s not here.

Jake: No, nobody’s here. You’re having a bad dream. It’s a nightmare. That’s all.

Ava: Yeah, it’s just– it’s just a nightmare. Oh, my god.

Jake: You said, “thank god she’s not here”?

Ava: [Mumbling] Yeah. It was gwen. She, um…she came after me for what I did to her, and she– she had this giant syringe, and she was just about to inject me with a–it’s just stupid.

Jake: Hey, it’s okay, all right? You’re safe. Everything is okay.

Ava: Oh, yeah.

[Phone rings]

Leo: Lady guinevere.

Gwen: My god, matty, it’s you!

Leo: Who were you expecting?

Gwen: I didn’t know. I mean–[Stutters] They don’t tell me who my visitors are. I knew someone was coming, but I didn’t know it’s be the only person in the whole world that I’d be happy to see.

Leo: Mm. I got you, my love.

Gwen: [Sighs]

Leo: I’m sorry I didn’t make it here sooner. I was busy dealing with the ugly and distressing fallout from the wesley-stark wedding interruptus.

Gwen: Oh, god, right. I know. I can’t even imagine how horrible that was for you. I mean, it breaks my heart knowing how they treated you.

Leo: Yeah, well, nothing I’m not used to, as you know.

[Inhales deeply] Being treated like dirt has been a recurring theme in my life, but I am resilient, like my bff guinevere. Hear us roar, girl.

Gwen: Oh, yeah, well, I don’t know if I bat in your league in the resiliency department, but I’ll take it.

Leo: Honey, it took me a while after my own miserable undoing to find out that abigail blew up your marriage, too. And I was just as heartbroken for you as I was for myself, and that’s saying a lot.

Gwen: Much appreciated, leo.

Leo: Okay, now that we have gotten our respective downfall postmortems out of the way, I didn’t just come here to see your gorgeous punim.

Gwen: Oh, this gorgeous punim?

Leo: Well, I came here to cheer you up.

Gwen: You already have cheered me up just by being here.

Leo: Mm, that is sweet of you to say, my love, but I am going to cheer you up in a more substantial way.

Gwen: Okay, go on.

Leo: See, since your sister, who is as mean as a junkyard dog, by the way, and her husband, that stud with those to-die-for blue eyes– I mean, have you ever seen eyes that are that blue? [Chuckles] And the body is not too shabby, either.

Gwen: Okay, can you just get to the point, leo, please?

Leo: Oh, right, right. Okay. So since chad and abigail dimera did a number on us– that’s putting it too mildly. It’s more like–I would say they blew up our lives. Wouldn’t you agree?

Gwen: I would, I would agree, but you know what? I’m actually still waiting on the part where you said you’re gonna cheer me up in a very substantial way.

Leo: All right, well, then get ready to be cheerful, lady guinevere of rizczech, because we aren’t going gently into that good night, my friend. That is not our style.

Gwen: What is our style, leo?

Leo: I was just about to get to it, all right? My friend, we are going to– drumroll, please…

[Taps fingers on table] Make those bitches pay. With depression, you just feel…blah.

Victor: Along about last april, I asked you if you were interested in taking over as ceo of titan. Last I checked, I still hadn’t gotten an answer.

Sonny: I know, and I am genuinely sorry, uncle vic, okay? There’s just–there’s been a lot going on. I’ve been dealing with–

Victor: I don’t want excuses. Just answer the question.

Sonny: This is a big decision for me to make.

Victor: And one that needs to be dealt with. Titan is sinking faster than the proverbial ship. We need a ceo.

Sonny: Okay, I understand that. Okay? So last time we discussed, I told you I had to talk it over with will first.

Victor: Oh, give me a break. And he said–he demanded that you come home. Needs his husband. Some sob story like that. Well…I don’t know why I expected any different. Kid’s always been clingy.

Sonny: What? He is not clingy at all. In fact, he’s the one who said I should take the job.

Victor: Oh?

Sonny: Oh.

[Knock at door]

Jake: [Chuckles] Who could that be?

Ava: [Grunts]

Jake: [Sighs]

[Sniffs] Gabi… oh, come on in.

Gabi: Well, well, look at you. Jake mentioned you managed to land in his bed, not that I give a damn.

Jake: Gabi, maybe you can come back later.

Ava: Yeah, how about never? That work for you?

Gabi: Now works. Oh, looks like someone didn’t get a lot of sleep last night. Why don’t you go do something about those bags under your eyes so I can chat privately with jake?

Ava: Yeah. I gotta get up anyway. And, uh, gabi? For the record, it was jake’s idea to share the bed.

[Awkward music]

Abigail: It was only thanks to ava that we finally have proof of what gwen did to me and sarah. And as happy as I am to finally have goods on my sister, it just makes me a little bit queasy, I suppose, that a former mafia princess is the person who helped me, especially this particular one.

Kayla: Well, you are smart to be wary. I don’t care how many times ava vitali says that she has turned over a new leaf in life. She’s dangerous. Maybe even more so if she’s giving you something that you want.

Abigail: I’m sure you’re right, which is why I will remain on my guard as far as ava vitali goes.

Kayla: That’s wise. On a bright note, though, at least gwen is paying for her crimes.

Abigail: Not all of them.

Gwen: So when you say “make those bitches pay”…

Leo: Okay, to sum it up, abigail screwed you, chad screwed me, true?

Gwen: Very true.

Leo: So we either sit around feeling sorry for ourselves, or we go after them in a similarly ruthless fashion.

Gwen: Payback.

Leo: The bigger, the badder, the better. I know for a fact that if we put our deviously brilliant minds together, we will make them regret going after matty, aka leo, and guinevere, aka gwen.

Gwen: Well, matty, aka leo, as much as I love the idea of getting revenge on my sister and her husband…

Leo: I thought you might.

Gwen: Yeah, see, but there’s just one tiny, teeny little problem.

Leo: Mm, what is that?

Gwen: Okay, I’ll give you three guesses.

Leo: Uh, okay. You’ve decided that you want to live an honest and honorable life from now on?

Gwen: Wrong. Two more.

Leo: You don’t want to collaborate with me because I’m so unpopular, you think it will reflect badly on you?

Gwen: Nope. Okay, for your third one, I’m gonna give you a little hint, yeah?

[Handcuffs rattle]

Leo: Oh, right. You’re going to prison.

Gwen: Ding, ding, ding, ding.

Xander: I talked to a lab tech on my way in.

Maggie: Mm.

Xander: He said they’re running tests on the antidote, and they haven’t found anything in it that could harm sarah.

Maggie: Well, that may be true, but no matter how many tests the lab runs, it’s far from a complete picture. A full panel of tests to guarantee that the drug is safe could take months or years.

Xander: What if sarah doesn’t have that kind of time, maggie?

Maggie: Oh, xander. We’re talking about a serum that was cooked up by a mad scientist. My daughter is not a lab rat. I mean, whether she’s 7, or 30 or 130, she’s my daughter. And all of these weeks spending all this time with her– as strange as it’s been, to find myself raising a little girl again, I’ve cherished it.

Xander: Are you saying that you don’t care if she stays a l–child for the rest of her life?

Maggie: Of course I care. I just don’t want to tempt fate. This antidote– it’s a complete unknown. Now, maybe it will help sarah, and maybe it won’T. But right now, this very minute, what I do have is my beautiful daughter, my healthy, my happy girl who answers me when I call her name. Don’t you, sarah? Sarah?

[Suspenseful music]

You never know

what opportunities

Gabi: You sleeping in these days? I know whatever ava wants me to believe, I know it’s not true.

Jake: Can it, gabi.

Ava: Huh. Still here.

Gabi: We haven’t even gotten started.

Ava: Don’t mind me. I’ve got an errand to run. I’ll see you later.

Jake: Mm-hmm.

Ava: Thanks for being so kind earlier.

Gabi: Aw, what’d you do? Did you bring her disgusting lasagna to bed? Bet she’s cooking up a storm for you, right?

Jake: What do you want?

Gabi: Right down to business. No “how are you?” “What’s new”?

Jake: How are you, gabi? What’s new?

Gabi: I’m fine. Thank you so much for asking. Oh, although, I’m sure you’re not very well, ’cause I read in “the intruder” that you were attacked by the devil in ben and sarah’s apartment.

Jake: Oh, yeah, that.

Gabi: I mean, it sounded pretty harrowing. Although it is “the intruder,” so I’m sure they exaggerated the details.

Jake: No, it was 100% accurate… and, uh, not the first time.

Gabi: My god–wait, so you’re saying that’s the truth, that johnny was possessed the day that you two fought at dimera?

Jake: Oh, yeah, you mean the day that you two clowns ousted me? Yeah.

Gabi: So that means the devil attacked you, too, then.

Jake: Yeah. We’ve established that. So if that’s everything, then there’s the door.

Gabi: No, it’s not– that’s exactly what I came here to talk to you about.

Jake: The devil?

Gabi: No, dimera. I’m here to un-oust you.

Jake: Excuse me?

Gabi: Jake, I want you back.

Jake: Huh.

Victor: Will told you to take the job at titan?

Sonny: He did.

[Exhales] Will and I and ari… I don’t–we miss salem. You know? And when I brought the idea of becoming ceo up with him, he–he didn’t think that splitting our time between phoenix and salem would be a problem.

Victor: I thought he loved his job at that newspaper.

Sonny: He does. But he’s been working on a lot of feature stories he can just file from home. Plus, ari will be out of school soon. It’s already may. You know, will could just bring her out here for the summer. Plus, I’m sure gabi would be thrilled.

Victor: Oh, well, as long as gabi’s thrilled.

Sonny: [Chuckles]

Victor: So does that mean that you’ll take it?

Sonny: I’m in.

Victor: [Chuckles]

Maggie: Sarah? Sweetheart? Look at me. Can you say something?

Xander: Sarah, can you hear us?

Maggie: Oh, god, xander. What’s happening? We gotta get– we gotta get kayla.

Xander: Yeah, I’ll go. You stay with sarah.

Maggie: Okay.

Kayla: So gwen told you that she killed your grandmother?

Abigail: After everything she did to sarah, to me, she made herself out to be the victim because I ruined her wedding, I ruined her life. So I think she just wanted to hurt me as deeply as she possibly could. And the way she said it, oh, kayla, it was so hateful. It was vicious.

Kayla: And you believed her?

Abigail: Well, when we got to the police station, then she reversed herself. She said that laura’s death was an accident. So, honestly, I don’t know what to believe, which is exactly what she wants. To never know the truth is the worst form of torture.

Kayla: It’s just diabolical.

Abigail: Tell me about it. And I know I can never rely on gwen for the truth, but the idea that she could be getting away with murdering my grandmother?

Kayla: I’m sorry you’ve gone through this. Well, that you’re still going through it.

Abigail: Yeah, but it’s not just me. She’s hurt so many people. The most important thing, though, is that she’s behind bars right now, where she belongs. And I guess there is one good thing that came out of it. She gave us the antidote for sarah.

Xander: Kayla! You have to help sarah. Now.

Leo: Okay, okay. So, yes, your going to prison could be a possible impediment to our plan, but, girl, you’ve always been so resourceful. I’m sure you will think of a clever way out of this injustice.

Gwen: Okay, matty, as much as I appreciate your encouragement…

[Scoffs] My resources and my bank account are running on empty at the moment. I don’t even have money for a lawyer.

Leo: So even without some sleazy lawyer, it’s not like you’re a low-life criminal. So you drugged your romantic rival. It was a crime of passion. People get off for those all the time.

Gwen: This is not just about sarah, my friend. I do have a few other charges to take off the list.

Leo: Abigail. Right. Did you really assault her and then look the other way as she was shipped off to a desert island?

Gwen: It was a very nice island.

Leo: Well, you wouldn’t hear me complaining. But back on topic. Whatever went down with abigail, she’s your sister. You’re still family. Can’t you get your dad to convince her to drop the charges? Play nice?

Gwen: Are you joking? I mean, did you not just hear yourself call her a mean junkyard dog? Not to mention the fact that when my wedding did blow up and I was arrested, I… I might have whispered something to abigail that would be quite hard to forgive.

Leo: Well, I hate to admit, I’m salivating to know what that was.

[Suspenseful music]

I told abigail that I killed her grandmother on purpose.

Leo: Did you? I was on an antidepressant,

Victor: About time you returned to your rightful place at titan.

Sonny: I–I don’t know what– I’m sc–I’m excited. You know? A–as– as satisfying as it’s been creating a company in mom’s honor, I miss titan.

Victor: Yeah, well, they’ve certainly missed your leadership. But you can’t rest on your laurels. Your buddy chad over there and the rest of the dimeras– they’re not gonna stop looking for ways to take us down.

Sonny: Well, ch–chad’s not the ceo anymore.

Victor: No, gabi is, which is even worse. Conniving little weasel came at titan once already. Can’t turn your back on her, not for a second.

Sonny: Oh, okay. Yes, well, I promise to be as cutthroat as possible with the mother of will’s child, the child that we are raising together.

Victor: Good.

Sonny: I–I was being, uh, sarcastic, uncle vic. Uh, but–but you don’t have to worry, okay? You don’t have to worry. I will not let my personal feelings for gabi interfere with my decisions. Okay? Business is business.

Victor: Well, just what I wanted to hear. With you at the helm, titan is gonna come back stronger and better than ever.

Sonny: Um, there’s also something else I should probably bring to your attention.

Victor: What?

Sonny: Leo stark has sworn revenge against me.

Leo: Did you really kill the old lady on purpose? You know me. I’m a vault.

[Ominous music]

Gwen: Ava. What the hell are you doing here?

Leo: She obviously came by to show off her 30 pieces of silver.

Ava: If you don’t mind, I’m here to see gwen.

Leo: Oh, but I do mind. See, I’m not sure you know how friendship works. So let me give you a tip. When a friend shares a secret with you, you keep it to yourself. You don’t blab it all over town, thereby ruining said friend’s life.

Ava: Gwen? May I speak with you alone?

Leo: Look, linda tripp, I’m not going anywhere. For all we know, you’re wearing a wire. So stop wasting our time. Get the hell out of here.

Gwen: Yeah, what he said.

Ava: Okay, look, I know you have no reason to want to talk to me…

Gwen: You think?

Ava: But I would not be here if it wasn’t important. Please. Just let me say my piece, and then I will go.

Leo: Don’t let the door hit you.

Gwen: Okay, ava. Go on then, say your piece. Let’s hear it.

[Tense music]

Jake: You want me back?

Gabi: As my employee, of course. Did I not make that clear?

Jake: Yeah, yeah. You made that abundantly clear. But–

Gabi: But what?

Jake: Is this some kind of joke? Are you, like–is johnny gonna pop out with a camera or something?

Gabi: No joke, jake.

Jake: The answer’s no.

Gabi: Well, I mean– will you at least hear me out?

Jake: [Sighs] You got five minutes.

Gabi: Okay, listen, I was only trying to get rid of you at dimera–

Jake: You mean, stab me in the back?

Gabi: Because I thought you were making moves to screw me over. I mean–you told me I have four minutes; would you please just let me say what I came here to say?

Jake: Go right ahead.

Gabi: Okay. Now that I know the truth, now that I know it was the devil, I want you back at dimera.

Jake: What’s your angle, gabi?

Gabi: No. What do you mean? There’s no angle. There’s no angle. Y–y–you’re great with the clients. People love you. Y–you’re great at what you do. Shin has some–has a soft spot for you, and you clearly haven’t found any other gainful form of employment.

Jake: So what, I’m just gonna trot back to dimera and work for you?

Gabi: Yes.

Jake: I’ll say it again. What’s your angle? There’s gotta be one.

Xander: What in hell could be taking so long?

Abigail: Kayla’s only been gone a few minutes. I mean, she’s gotta do a thorough exam. She might have to do more tests–

Xander: More tests? They haven’t got the results back from the first ones yet.

Abigail: Look, I know it’s frustrating, but this is the only way we’re gonna find out what’s wrong.

Xander: I’ll tell you what’s wrong. We need to give sarah that antidote. I mean, the longer we wait, who knows what’s gonna happen? My god, what if– what if sarah doesn’t come out of this? What if she gets worse? What if–what if she dies?

Abigail: Xander, whatever is wrong with sarah, I’m sure it is not life-threatening.

Xander: How can you be sure? You a–a doctor? You a scientist? You didn’t even see what she was like. She was fine, albeit as a seven-year-old, and then she was staring off into space, completely out of it.

Abigail: Well, maybe it’s– it’s temporary. It could be a delayed side effect of the drug.

Xander: What, her powering down like a faulty computer? Tell me, abigail, when you were dosed, did chad have to reboot you like his bloody laptop?

Abigail: Look… I know you blame me for what happened to sarah.

Xander: Of course i blame you. If you hadn’t been so determined to get revenge on your sister with that bloody syringe, none of this would be happening.

Abigail: And you have no idea how sorry I am.

Xander: What good does sorry do? Look, um, I’m sorry. At least you came forward with the truth that gwen was more than happy to send sarah to hell with a second dose. I mean, if it hadn’t been for you… at least sarah has a fighting chance now. So as angry as I am, I guess I owe you my thanks. Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Gabi: I told you, there’s no angle. It’s just a smart business move.

Jake: Gabi, you don’t do anything unless there’s something in it for you. And I don’t mean that as an insult. It obviously helped you get where you are. But if you want me to join you, you at least owe me the decency to be honest.

Gabi: Okay, fine. Ej is making noise about wanting his job back. A lot of noise.

Jake: Ah, so you’re scared.

Gabi: I’m not scared.

[Laughs] I’m scared? No. I just need to be prepared.

Jake: So you need a wingman?

Gabi: I need only what you can offer.

Jake: Oh. This is gonna be good.

Gabi: No matter how qualified I am, and I am damn qualified, I am not a dimera. Not by blood, and that’s what counts.

Jake: That’s where I come in.

Gabi: Look, when I’m going up against ej in that boardroom, I’m gonna need a dimera on my side. That’s where you come in. And yes, your skills seal the deal, but once the board sees what a great team we are, they’re not gonna pick ej over us. This could be the–the power that we’ve talked about.

Jake: [Sighs] A lot’s changed, gabi.

Gabi: You got something better going?

Jake: We just broke up.

Gabi: Yeah. And we’re adults, right? I mean, you’ve made it very clear that you don’t want to get back together. I swear to you, I will keep our arrangement platonic, very similar to what you have going on with ava. So what do you say?

Gwen: [Sighs] It’s all right, matty. You can go, really. Thank you for stopping by.

Leo: Are you sure about this? You want me to leave you alone with her?

Gwen: Yes, it’s fine, honestly, really.

Leo: Okay. But if you need anything, I’m here for you because that’s the kind of friend I am, unlike some people.

[Tense music]

Gwen: I have to say, the very sight of you makes me sick. Do just say what you have to say and say it quickly, and then get the hell out of here, please.

Maggie: Kayla just finished examining sarah, and she’s on her way down to the lab to rush the test results. Oh.

Kayla: Which I just read.

Xander: What do they say?

Maggie: Go ahead.

Kayla: I’m sorry. It’s not good. According to these latest scans, sarah’s condition is deteriorating.

Xander: You needed to look at a scan to tell you that? The woman’s catatonic.

Maggie: Xander…

Xander: I’m sorry.

Kayla: I know how frustrating this is for both of you. We had really hoped that the effects of the drug would diminish over time like they did with abigail.

Abigail: But I got a much smaller dose, and it was just the one time.

Kayla: And that seems to have made a critical difference. In sarah’s case, the increased dosage seems to still be acting on her brain chemistry. First, it made her believe that she was a child, and now it is sending her into a fugue state.

Xander: But the antidote could reverse that process, right?

Kayla: I can’t say for sure. But that’s what we hope. In fact, at this point, it’s our only hope.

Maggie: But the drug– it has–still hasn’t been fully vetted.

Kayla: I understand, maggie. But based on these scans and the rate of deterioration that is progressing, if we don’t intervene, sarah could end up in a permanently vegetative state.

Xander: You can’t let that happen.

Kayla: I know, maggie, that you do not want to expose sarah to any more drugs. And this is absolutely your call. But if we don’t do something, if we don’t try this, I’m afraid it’s going to get worse.

[Soft music]

Maggie: Give sarah the drug. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Sonny: Oh, my gosh. I thought I should let ysonny.

Victor: Damn it, sonny. Leo stark is just the kind of trouble we don’t need.

Sonny: Look, it could just be an empty threat. All right, in fact, it–it most likely is. But since the last time I got involved with leo, we almost torched titan, I thought I should let you know. Especially since he already went after chad.

Victor: I’ll say. I saw the article in “the intruder.” Since when did chad start playing for your team?

Sonny: Oh, my gosh. He doesn’t play for my team.

Victor: Are you sure about that?

Sonny: Oh, my go–yes, yes, I am sure, and more importantly, so is chad. But look, uncle vic, if I’m gonna come back to titan, you have to promise me one thing, all right? You can’t believe everything that you read.

Ava: I came here to apologize.

Gwen: For sending me up the river? Aw, how touching.

Ava: Listen, I really am sorry, gwen. You have to believe me. Look, I just– I never meant to sell you out to the cops. It’s just, they had me dead to rights. And I needed a life preserver ’cause I was going down. And unfortunately, the life preserver was you.

Gwen: My god. Did you actually think that you could come here and make nice, and say that I served as your damn life preserver, and that all would be forgiven? My family hates me. Xander hates me. I’m going to prison. You have completely destroyed my life, ava. Now please get the hell out of here now!

Ava: Not quite yet. Because I did not come here to beg for your forgiveness. I came here to help you.

Maggie: It won’t be long, sweetheart.

Xander: God willing.

[Door opens]

Kayla: Ready?

Maggie: Yeah. Sarah, kayla’s here. She’s going to give you some medicine, all right?

Kayla: Not to worry, all right?

[Dramatic music]

Feeling sluggish or weighed down?

Leo: Perfect.


Sonny: Well, look who it is. You’re still in town?

Leo: Hi, sonny. I told you I wasn’t going anywhere.

Sonny: Yeah, well, I hoped you weren’t serious.

Leo: Oh. You know how much I love this burg. There’s still so much left to accomplish. Congratulations, by the way. “Sonny kiriakis named ceo of titan.” Guess that means you’re sticking around salem too.

Sonny: Yeah. I will be.

Leo: [Inhales] That is such good news. Now I’ve got you right where I want you. Mmm, you cute thing. Toodles.

Gabi: Well? My five minutes are ticking, so… give me the answer, and I’ll get out of here.

Jake: Okay. I’ll do it.

Gabi: Great. Welcome back to dimera.

Gwen: Help me?

[Scoffs] What can you do? Unless you’re planning on hiring me a lawyer.

Ava: Yeah, I’m afraid I can’t do that. But I can do you one better.

Gwen: How?

Ava: I’m gonna bust you out of here.

[Dramatic music]

Abigail: Did you–

Kayla: I gave sarah the antidote.

Abigail: So now what?

Kayla: Now we wait.

[Uneasy music]

Maggie: No news yet, I’m afraid.

Victor: Sarah’s a strong girl. She’ll pull through this.

Maggie: [Sighs] I hope to god you’re right.

Victor: Well, god and i haven’t always seen eye to eye, but in this case, I think he’s on our side.

Maggie: Mm. Well, I hope so.

Victor: You’ll keep me posted?

Maggie: I will.

Victor: I love you, maggie.

Maggie: I love you too.

[Sighs] No change?

Xander: Nothing yet.

Maggie: Shouldn’t something be happening by now?

Xander: Oh, believe me, maggie, I’m every bit as impatient as you, but we need to give the drug a chance– maggie.

Maggie: Sarah?

Sarah: Xander?

[Wondrous music]

Xander: [Exhales]

Maggie: [Gasps] Ah! Sarah, oh, my.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[Tense music]

Chad: Bad day?

Ej: It’s allie. My mother and son are turning themselves inside out trying to figure out how to make contact with her, but so far, not even a clue where she is.

Chad: Given that the devil can morph into anything from a panther to a corpse, finding her isn’t gonna be easy.

Ej: Could even be impossible, god help us. But at least I got them to agree to get some rest.

Chad: Johnny must be going through hell. Sorry. I just–trying to save his sister from the devil, I can’t imagine. I’m really sorry.

Ej: Actually, I’m the one who should apologize to you.

Roman: Yeah, all right, well, keep me posted.

Kate: Roman, please tell me that is news about our granddaughter.

Roman: I wish to god it was. John, marlena, eric are still out beating down doors. No sign of allie or the baby.

Kate: Damn it, roman, where is she?

Roman: Kate.

Kate: What?

Roman: I’m afraid I have more news.

Kate: Okay, what does that mean?

Roman: It seems that sami and lucas are missing as well.

Kayla: Ah, there you are. I was really starting to get worried about you. How did it go?

Steve: Well, I tell you, I’ve stared down every stray cat that crossed my path. I listened patiently to susan banks’ analysis of the movie “rosemary’s baby,” which apparently she’s seen 168 times, so I thought it was time to call it quits and start fresh in the morning.

Kayla: That’s a good idea. Listen, I made you some chowder. It’s on the stove, and there is a nice cold beer waiting for you to go with it.

Steve: Thank you, baby. What else?

Kayla: I’m gonna head out.

Steve: Well, where you going?

Kayla: I’m gonna go check on ciara. I mean, she’s been through so much, and I just wish that she had a doctor treating her that really knew her, she felt comfortable. If it wasn’t for that jackass seth burns, it…

Steve: Yeah.

[Knock at door]

Kayla: Who could be here at this hour?

Steve: Oh, look, here’s the jackass now.

Julie: So lani’s father is the man who shot you in the park, left you for dead? And now that killer is on his way to paulina’s apartment?

Eli: I should’ve never let lani go over there.

Julie: Well, darling, you’re in no condition to stop her. You know lani, when she gets something into her head, even you couldn’t put the brakes on her, and abraham is there at least.

Eli: Grandma, that’s not enough. I mean, if tr is armed and he feels cornered, we both know how dangerous he can be.

Julie: But lani’s a police detective, so she knows what she’s doing.

Eli: She’s my wife, the mother of my children. I should be there.

Julie: Oh, no, you’re in no condition to do that.

Eli: The best thing you can so for the mother of your children is to stay here and to get well. I know how you feel. My god, if I owned a gun, I’d be tempted to go shoot tr myself.

Paulina: I’m not afraid of you, go ahead, you coward!

Lani: You son of a bitch.

Tr: Lani, baby, I can explain.

[Tense music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Seth: My apologies for dropping by so late.

Steve: Apology not accepted.

Kayla: Hello, seth.

Steve: Kayla, if you don’t mind, I have a few words I would like to say to mr. Burns.

Kayla: Yes, be my guest.

Steve: As you know, seth, my wife devoted years of her life to university hospital. She saved hundreds of lives, and you made the asinine decision to fire her because she wouldn’t play ball with the board and fire another outstanding doctor, who I might point out remains on staff.

Seth: If I may–

Steve: No, you may not. What the hell are you doing here anyway?

Seth: Actually, I’m here to offer kayla her job back.

[Dramatic music]

Paulina: What have you done?

Lani: If ray killed my father–

Abe: [Groans]

Lani: Dad, dad, dad, dad. Dad, can you hear me?

Abe: [Groans]

Lani: Dad–oh, oh, thank god. Oh, thank god, oh, thank god. Dad, dad, he’s alive.

Paulina: I’m not so sure about ray. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Chad: Why are you apologizing to me?

Ej: Recent circumstances have led me to a bit of a wake-up call.

Chad: By recent circumstances, I assume you mean–

Ej: Finding out that my son was possessed by the devil for months, and not only did I not realize it, I was proud of his behavior–well, some of it anyway. Needless to say, it was cause for some serious introspection.

Chad: Introspection, it’s never really been your thing.

Ej: [Chuckles] Yes, but I suppose that’s part of the problem. I’ve always said that family was my first priority, but my actions haven’t borne out my words, have they?

Chad: From personal experience, no.

Ej: I might have unfairly held it against you when giovanni returned to salem, and he seemed to favor trusty uncle chad to dear old dad.

Chad: Well, I mean, I’m the one that used to sneak him out in my maserati, let him eat pie for dinner, and I never asked him to clean his room, so i don’t think it had much to do with you.

Ej: I’m quite sure it was. At any rate, I took my anger out on you and johnny. I made everything between us adversarial. I inserted myself in johnny’s movie. I insisted that I play john to abigail’s marlena, exploiting my past with abigail just to needle you. It was cruel and unnecessary. Not to mention that I proposed that you and I team up to take dimera from jake, put you as ceo, while all along, I had my own agenda to take the reigns solely in my hands.

Chad: It’s just business.

Ej: No, it was selfish.

Chad: Yeah, kinda sucked.

Ej: And look where it’s gotten me, a son in trouble, gabi hernandez running dimera. I suppose it serves me right.

Chad: Look, johnny’s gonna be fine with our help. As far as dimera, I don’t want gabi running it any more than you do.

Ej: I was hoping you’d say that.

Chad: What do you mean?

Ej: Maybe we should join forces and get gabi out of dimera, take back what’s ours. What do you say, brother of mine?

Kate: Roman, I know that we’re having difficulty reaching lucas and sami, but what makes you think that they’re missing?

Roman: The thing is, nobody’s been able to get ahold of them. Now, spotty reception is one thing, complete radio silence, that is another, so i called shane.

Kate: Because their cells were out of range, you call the isa?

Roman: Sami and lucas’ daughter is out there running around possessed by the devil. Her twin brother is recovering from possession. That is an emergency situation in my book, so I thought they might want to know. Now, I wasn’t worried about them at all until the isa told me it seems like they have just simply dropped off the face of the earth.

Steve: What did you just say?

Seth: If you would allow me to explain?

Steve: Well, that’s up to my wife.

Kayla: Come in, seth. Would you like some coffee?

Seth: I’d love some, thanks.

[Cell phone ringing]

Steve: Okay, this is julie. I better take it. She might have some news about ciara and the baby. Hey, julie, what’s up?

Julie: Oh, steve, thank god you answered. I need you to go to paulina price’s apartment right now, right now. Do you understand? It’s an emergency.

Lani: We need to get help, paulina.

[Phone beeping]

Paulina: Oh, we need an ambulance. The victim is unconscious. There’s a head wound. He’s bleeding. Please hurry. Hang in there, abraham. Help is on the way.

Tr: Lani. Lani. I love you.

Lani: How can you say that after everything you’ve done?

Tr: You’re my daughter, my child. I love you. I forgive you.


Lani: Ray, ray, ray.

[Tense music]

He’s dead. My a1c stayed here,

Kate: So you believe the isa? You think sami and lucas have vanished?

Roman: Kate, we haven’t heard from them in weeks.

Kate: I know, I know, but it’s not like it’s unusual. Okay, they’re free spirits.

Roman: Yeah, well, two of sami’s kids have been possessed by the devil. What if satan decided to do something to make sami and lucas go away?

Kate: Okay, roman, now you’re scaring me.

Roman: Well, I’m just asking the question.

Kate: Look, roman, sami and lucas have been out of town for months. I mean, it’s not like they were caught up in what satan was doing and decided to interfere.

Roman: Yeah, look, I just can’t help thinking about the last time sami took off for months on end, how wrong we got it. We thought when she left town and didn’t say a word, sami was just being sami, doing what sami does, only to find out she had been kidnapped and her life had been in danger that whole time. Is it so far-fetched to think that might have happened again?

Chad: You want to team up with me to take dimera back?

Ej: Now that johnny’s back in town and back in his right mind, he no longer has any desire to take over the company. I can reclaim my shares from him, and if johnny votes with us, belle said that–

Chad: Wait, you already talked to belle about this?

Ej: She was eager to do something to make up for her role in my ousting, or what she thought her role was, especially now that we know that she really wasn’t the one who framed me since she herself was framed by someone else.

Kayla: There you are.

Seth: Thank you. I’m sorry steve had to leave so abruptly.

Kayla: Oh, I’m sure you are. So tell me, seth, what’s going on? Why the sudden 180 on the chief of staff position?

Seth: I’m sure you’ve heard through the grapevine that, after his wedding debacle, craig wesley abruptly resigned as chief of staff and left salem.

Kayla: I heard something to that effect.

Seth: You can see the position this puts me in.

Kayla: Um, desperate.

Seth: In a word, yes. When craig pitched himself for the job, he said he’d be ready on day one. You’re the only other person who fits that description.

Kayla: How flattering?

Seth: Kayla, the truth is, the staff essentially revolted when they learned that dr. Wesley had replaced you. And I’m here to eat crow until i choke on it and beg you, come back to university hospital as chief of staff.

Kayla: I would love to have my job back.

Seth: That is good news.

Kayla: Only, I have one condition.

Julie: Honey, I’m sure we’ll hear from steve in no time, and everything’s gonna be fine.

Julie: Oh, you’re in pain. I’m gonna get a nurse and get you some medication.

Eli: Grandma, look, I’ll be fine, all right? I need to be awake. I gotta have a clear head. Lani left paulina a message. She said that–she was telling paulina that tr was dangerous. Abe, he didn’t know what he was walking in on.

Julie: Why tonight of all nights did I urge abe to go to paulina’s and say he loves her? Just got to believe that tr cares about paulina, cares about his daughter and wouldn’t hurt them, but abe… he thinks of abe as a rival and just wants him out of the way. Oh, god. Oh, please, god, let steve get there before anything terrible happens.

Paulina: Lani, sweetie?

Lani: What happened here, paulina?

Paulina: Ray said he was going to take me away on a romantic weekend, and I left the room to pack. When I came back–I should have known something was up. I thought I’d heard voices, but ray lied to me, tried to hustle me out of here, and that’s when I heard abraham moaning, found him like this. And I knew something was very wrong, and I tried to call 911. Ray grabbed my phone, threatened me, and then you came in.

Lani: Didn’t you get my messages?

Paulina: Your message? No.

Lani: Paulina, it was ray.

Paulina: What?

Lani: Ray, he is the one who shot eli.

Paulina: Who told you that?

Lani: Eli.

Paulina: Eli?

Lani: He’s awake.

Paulina: Oh, well, praise the lord.

Lani: And he remembers everything, paulina. He remembers everything the day that he was shot.

Paulina: But why would ray shoot eli?

Lani: Because he knew too much. Remember beth? She told eli that ray beat her and that he was using drugs their entire relationship.

Paulina: But beth, she told us the opposite. She assured us that ray was a new man.

Lani: She lied.

Paulina: Why would she lie?

Lani: Maybe he threatened her. He wanted to be with you. And he wanted a life with me. So he was willing to do whatever he had to do to keep us from finding out the truth, including–he shot my husband in the head, paulina!

Paulina: Oh, my god.

Lani: And I saw you and ray leaving the hospital together, and I was so afraid for you, paulina, so I left you that message, and I got here as fast as I could, and then I saw my dad unconscious, and I saw ray’s hand raised to hit you, and i just–I don’t know, I just–i lost it, and I–

Paulina: Baby, baby. It’ll be all right.

Lani: Why didn’t I just arrest him? He wasn’t even armed, and–

Paulina: Oh, no, baby, it’ll be all right, it’ll be all right, baby, I’m telling you.

Steve: What the hell happened here?

Paulina: I shot him. I shot ray. If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Kate: So are you saying that you think ej’s behind this? That he kidnapped lucas and sami?

Roman: No. I’m saying we don’t know who kidnapped sami the last time, now that ej has been exonerated.

Kate: Well, he hasn’t exactly been exonerated, roman. His conviction was overturned because of planted evidence. I mean, there was eyewitness testimony there. One of the kidnappers said that he–well, he identified ej as being the man who hired them.

Roman: All true, okay? All true, but still, that never seemed to sit quite right.

Kate: Well, I mean, who else could have done it?

Roman: Ej did point the finger at your son.

Kate: Roman, that was a completely baseless accusation by a lawyer who wanted to undermine lucas’ testimony. I mean, seriously, you really think that lucas could do something like that. He has absolutely zero motive. He loves sami.

Roman: Okay, all right, all right, kate. All right, look. I am just saying there could be other suspects, and that is something we need to keep in mind until we find just where in the hell our kids are.

Chad: You think someone else framed you?

Ej: Of course. Bell was never possessed. Johnny was. He must have been the one who planted that evidence on your laptop so you would stumble across it, then turn me into the police. Later, he copied the files onto belle’s laptop to make it look like she was the one who framed me.

Chad: You know a way to clear ej without incriminating me or lucas?

Kate: I think so.

Chad: Okay, I don’t see how we can pull that off and keep everybody’s hands clean.

Kate: Well, I didn’t mention everyone. I mean, someone’s going to have to take the fall, just not you.

Chad: Okay, I’ll bite, who?

Kate: I say we pin the crime on the devil.

Chad: Johnny did make a play for dimera, so that makes sense.

Ej: And that is all in the past. Belle has drawn up the stock transfer papers to help us make things right. All johnny has to do is sign, and all my original shares revert back to me. I’ll go up and speak with him.

Chad: Whoa, wait, I mean, his mind is filled with worry about allie right now. You sure this is the time to do that?

Ej: It’s not the best time, no, but this move will help us gain access to all of dimera’s resources, so we can be in the best possible position to locate allie and give her the help that she needs. Agreed?

Chad: Yeah, maybe, if you think it’ll bring allie home, sure.

Ej: I’ll go speak with him. I hope that this is the beginning of some healing between you and I, and for our family.

[Cell phone beeps]

[Line trilling]

Chad: Kate, pick up.

Kate: Hello?

Chad: You and I need to talk about what we did to my brother.

Seth: Name your condition, kayla.

Kayla: If you are still expecting me to fire marlena, I won’t do it.

Seth: [Chuckles] The board has rethought that position.

Kayla: Really, what made them change their mind?

Seth: Well, now that the devil has possessed multiple people, dr. Evans’ scandal is so yesterday.

Kayla: Of course.

Seth: And frankly, her popularity amongst the staff is only rivaled by yours. There’s widespread agreement that you and dr. Evans are the finest physicians to ever have been on the staff at university hospital. And I have to agree.

Kayla: Okay, I accept. When would you want me to start?

Seth: How about tonight?

Lani: Paulina, why?

Paulina: The emts and police are on their way.

Steve: Is he dead?

Lani: Yes.

Steve: All right.

Paulina: Oh, maybe abe’s starting to come around.

Steve: Hey, buddy, hey.

Lani: Why did you tell him that you shot tr?

Paulina: You, hush. I know what I’m doing.

Lani: But–

Paulina: No, just go and help steve with your father. Go show him where the first aid kit is. Do it.

Abe: [Groaning]

Steve: Stay still.

[Tense music]

Eli: Why isn’t lani calling? I mean, paulina, abe, hell, even steve?

Julie: I’ll call lani. I’ll call her right now.

[Phone beeps] Straight to voicemail.

Eli: Screw this. I’m not sitting in this hospital waiting–

Julie: Darling, no! No, honey, you can’t! Honey, you can’t get out of bed! Darling!

Trelegy for copd.

Eli: I gotta get to my wife.

Julie: No, honey, no, please. Help, somebody, help me!

Kayla: What’s going on?

Julie: Kayla, thank god.

Kayla: What happened?

Julie: Well, my crazy grandson tried to get out of bed.

Julie: Easy, let’s get you back in bed, come on, come on. There you go.

Eli: I’m fine.

Kayla: Let me help you. You’re all right. Let me get your pulse. Julie, would you get him a glass of water, please?

Julie: Yeah, sure. Oh, kayla, not that I’m not thrilled to see you, but what are you doing here? I thought you–

Kayla: Was fired? Well, I was, but seth reinstated me. There you go.

Julie: Well, he’s not the idiot I took him for then.

Kayla: Yeah, well, I was on my way to see you because i heard you woke up. What are you thinking getting out of bed when you just came out of a coma?

Eli: Lani is in danger.

Julie: That’s the reason that I called steve to check on her.

Kayla: Oh, that’s what that call was about.

Julie: But we haven’t heard a word, not a word from him. Have you?

Kayla: No, I’m sorry. I haven’T.

Steve: Hey, over here, guys. That one’s beyond help.

Paulina: Where are the police?

Busy night, they’re a few minutes behind us.

Paulina: This is all my fault; none of this would have happened if only ray hadn’t tried to worm his way into my life. If I hadn’t left that opening, then–oh, and now poor abraham. Can we go to the hospital with him? I want to be there when he wakes up.

Steve: Lani can go with him. She can give her statement to the police later. I think you should stay here until they arrive.

Paulina: Right.

Lani: Paulina–

Paulina: No, no, you go. Go be with your father. He needs you.

Lani: Yes, but–

Paulina: You go. I’m fine. I can take care of myself. I always have.

Kate: So ej thinks johnny’s the one who framed him. I mean, that’s no surprise. We framed the devil. Everyone thinks it’s the devil. So what’s the problem?

Chad: The problem is that ej is reaching out to me. He wants a fresh start. He wants to be brothers instead of adversaries. He even wants to partner up to reclaim dimera. I mean, if he’s willing to take these steps, then I have to at least meet him halfway.

Kate: Chad, you can’t do that; you can’t tell ej you’re the one who framed him for kidnapping sami. I mean, it will totally implicate lucas.

Chad: Okay, I can do it without implicating lucas.

Kate: Oh, my god, we have been through this before. You tell ej that you’re the one who framed him, what do you think he’s gonna do? Do you think he’s just gonna forgive and forget? Do you think he’s gonna want to just hug it out? Because that is not ej’s style. Okay? You want a fresh start with your brother, well, that’s all gonna go up in flames, and you’re gonna be covered in ashes. Is that what you want?

Chad: What I want is to make things right with my brother.

Kate: Then do that, chad. Just do that, okay? Get your fresh start, but just keep your mouth shut about what you know.

[Tense music]


Kate: Yeah, okay. Well, I have to go. And I really hope you’ll take to heart what I had to say.

Roman: Take what to heart?

Kate: Oh, god, it’s rafe. I was telling that he and his keystone cops need to get their act together and find allie. I mean, she’s been gone so long. Who knows what’s happened?

Roman: Kate, look, I’m frustrated too, okay? But there’s not a damn doubt in my mind that rafe is doing every possible thing he can do.

Kate: Yeah, well, he can do better. What? You drinking coffee at this time of night?

Roman: Decaf. But you know what, I think i am gonna turn in. Not much we can do till daybreak, and I do want to get up bright and early to help search.

Kate: Okay, well, why don’t I close up for you then?

Roman: No, no, that’s all right.

Kate: I want to.

Roman: Too good to me, kate. Thank you.

Kate: Hey, come here. Okay, get some sleep, and I’ll be up in a few minutes.

Ej: Chad, success. Giovanni signed my shares back over to me.

Chad: That’s great.

Ej: I also asked him about those statements showing i paid off the kidnappers.

Chad: What’d he say?

Ej: Unfortunately, my son has no memory of framing me for sami’s kidnapping, which hardly surprises me, given that he doesn’t remember much about what transpired during that time, so I guess we’ll never really know.

Chad: Ej, there’s something I need to tell you.

Kayla: So everything that beth said about tr was a lie?

Julie: Exactly, he is a violent man, a lying, murdering–oh, god, now I’ve upset you. Maybe I shouldn’t have called steve; I couldn’t think of anything else to do.

Kayla: No, no, no, it was the right thing to do. That’s what steve was trained to do. It’s okay.

[Cell phone rings] Wait, sorry. Oh, it’s the er. I’ve got to take this. Dr. Johnson. Yeah, I’ll be right there.

Julie: What is it?

Kayla: There’s an ambulance en route from paulina’s address. The victim is unconscious with a head injury.

Julie: Oh, my god.

Eli: Did they say who it was?

Kayla: No, but I will let you know as soon as I know. I gotta go.

Eli: Damn it.

Julie: What the hell happened over there?

Paulina: Can we cover him with a blanket or something?

Steve: I know it’s not pretty, but we can’t disturb the crime scene.

Paulina: Of course. You think abe’s gonna be okay?

Steve: He’s in good hands, I can tell you that much. You want to tell me what happened here?

Paulina: I already told you. I shot him.

[Radio chatter]

Ma’am, you said you shot this man?

Paulina: Yes, sir, I did.

Steve: He’s dead.

Paulina: And I’m not going to say a word without my lawyer present.

You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Kate: Lucas, this is your mother, and I hate to be the bearer of bad news, and perhaps you already know, but your daughter, allie, has been possessed by the devil, and no one knows where you and sami are, and roman is starting to ask questions. So if you have done something to sami again… lucas, if I don’t hear from you in 24 hours, I’m telling roman everything.

Ej: What is it?

Chad: I’m sorry for the things that I did as well that contributed to our falling out. I want to be partners again. I want to be brothers again.

Ej: Wouldn’t father be proud and pleased to see his sons coming together in the name of family and the dimera legacy?

[Tense music]

Kayla: Okay, I want you to follow my light with your eyes. Okay, good, very good. Do you know who I am?

Abe: Dr. Kayla johnson.

Kayla: Uh-uh, that’s cheating. No, you got it.

Abe: Oh, wait a minute. You’re not supposed to be here.

Kayla: You know, despite that nasty blow on your head and a mild concussion, I would say that your memory is intact.

Abe: Thank you.


Kayla: And I was reinstated.

Abe: Well, that’s good news.

Kayla: Yeah, it is, and I’m glad I’m here to help you. Listen, I just want you to know the police are gonna want to talk to you, but not until I’ve medically cleared you, all right?

Abe: Okay.

Kayla: Now, how about before or after the attack, do you have any memories about what happened?

Paulina: What have you done?

Julie: Oh, steve, if you hadn’t been there, it could have been so much worse. I’m just glad I had the presence of mind to call you.

Steve: Excuse me, julie. I gotta go. That looks like a police issued service weapon.

It sure does.

[Tense music]

Eli: Baby, thank god. Are you all right?

Lani: I’m fine.

Eli: What about your dad? How’s abe?

Lani: He regained consciousness in the ambulance. He’ll be okay.

Eli: Honey, look at me, hey. Are you sure you’re okay? You’re covered in blood.

Lani: It’s ray. He’s dead.

Eli: He’s dead? What happened?

Lani: You son of a bitch.

Tr: Lani, baby, I can explain.

Eli: Lani, what happened?

Lani: Paulina said she shot him.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Eli: Frank didn’t shoot me. Lani, it was tr.

Lani: What? No. No. Tr? That–that can’t be right, eli.

Eli: No, lani, your biological father is the one that tried to kill me.

Abe: Paulina home?

Tr: [Chuckles] This really isn’t a good time, abe.

Abe: I need to see her.

Tr: I’m sorry, but she’s kind of busy.

Abe: She won’t be too busy to hear what I have to say.

Tr: You really think you own the world, don’t you, mr. Mayor?

Abe: Excuse me?

Tr: You have been running that woman hot and cold for the last few months. First, you don’t want to have anything to do with her. And now, you show up and expect her to drop everything to see you. Just what is so important you need to tell paulina right this very moment?

Abe: Well, not that it’s any of your damn business, but I’m here to tell the woman I love I want her back.

Rafe: Okay, johnny, thanks for the heads-up. We’ll take it from here. All right. Hey.

Shawn: Half the department’s out there searching. They still don’t have a clue where allie took my sister.

Rafe: Actually, I think I know where they are.

Ciara: [Sobbing]

Ben: Ciara… you had the baby here?

Ciara: Mm.

Ben: Oh, my god.

Ciara: Allie, she– she delivered him. Only, she’s not allie. And then she took the baby and she left, ben.

Ben: Where?

Ciara: I don’t know.

Ben: Where did they go?

Ciara: I don’t know. I don’t know where, but we need to find him. Ben, we have to save our bo.

[Dramatic music]

Demon allie: Oh, andre. I expected so much more from you. Humans. They always let you down.

[Baby crying] Aw, bo. Hey, don’t cry, baby bo. Oh, I could never hurt you. You’re much too important to me. Hey, there, there. Don’t you worry. I’m gonna take very good care of you. What do you think? Doesn’t the dimera crypt make the perfect nursery? Temporarily, anyways. You can just think of all of these dead dimeras as your babysitters. You and I– we are going to do great things together.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Tr: You really have some nerve, don’t you?

Abe: How do you figure?

Tr: All of a sudden, you in love with paulina. You want her back.

Abe: You’re damn right, I do. Now, you gonna let me in?

Tr: What part of “paulina doesn’t have time for your games” do you not get?

Abe: Paulina can decide for herself if she wants to see me.

Tr: She already has decided.

Abe: Excuse me?

Tr: We are giving it another go.

Abe: What?

Tr: You heard me. We are back together. Matter of fact, I’m fittin’ to take my woman out of town for a romantic getaway.

Abe: Your woman?

Tr: You snooze, you lose, player.

Abe: There’s no way that paulina would go away with the likes of you, especially with her son-in-law in a coma.

Tr: Eli’s awake? Eli is my son-in-law, as in mine and paulina’S.

Abe: You really want to get into this?

Tr: This? You mean me being lani’s real father?

Abe: I’m lani’s father in every way that matters.

Tr: Well, not every way. I was cut out of her life for a lot of years. But I plan on getting my family back together, starting this weekend.

Abe: This proves how little you know about family, that you would take paulina away at a time like this.

Tr: You know what, brother? You starting to wear on my nerves.

Abe: I’m sorry to hear that. But I’m not leaving, brother.

Tr: Yeah? Well, we are. A weekend away from salem, away from all the stress– not to mention your judgment– is just what paulina needs. Besides, it’s not like eli’s waking up anytime soon.

Lani: [Sighs] Baby, I–I think you– you may be confused.

Eli: I’m not confused. Lani, I remember everything about that night.

Lani: Okay, well, what do you remember?

Eli: I was interviewing tr’s ex, beth, at the station. An–and I went to, um– I went to the park. Ray was there, and he reached for my gun. Lani, he shot me. That son of a bitch shot me in cold blood.

Lani: But why? Why–why would he do that? He wants to be a part of my life, a part of our kids’ lives. Why would he risk all of that, eli, by shooting my husband?

Eli: Because I found out the truth about him.

Lani: What truth?

Shawn: Susan banks believes that ciara gave birth at the horton cabin?

Rafe: Yeah, and susan’s been right more times than not about this devil stuff.

Shawn: That’s true. So that’s where we need to go. We need to go to the horton cabin.

Rafe: Okay, hold on. Now, if we are going to smith island, we are not going alone. ‘Cause if the devil is there, we’re gonna need backup.

Shawn: You make the call. I’m driving.

Ben: Tell me what happened. What did allie do?

Ciara: I told you, it wasn’t allie, ben. She’s possessed.

Ben: I know that. She drugged me and locked me up, and she tried to kill me.

Ciara: Oh, my god. She wanted me to believe that you were dead so that I would be here, alone, grieving and isolated, and so that she would be the only one here when the baby was born.

Ben: I’m sorry. I’m sorry I wasn’t here with you.

Ciara: The devil fooled me, babe. I mean, he even tried to convince me that rafe wanted us to go to the cabin. And I knew it. I knew something was wrong. I knew something was off, I–

Ben: Don’t blame yourself. How could you have known that?

Ciara: I did know! Ben, that’s the thing. I knew it in my heart. I knew it.

Ben: Look, allie was very supportive of us the entire pregnancy. She was good to you. She was helping you. She tried to take care of you.

Ciara: Only she wasn’t helping us. Ben, the devil was getting ready to take our baby. And now he has him.

Ben: Why? What does that demon want with our son?

Evan: Oh, hey. It’s you. You said I could lie low here. I hope that’s still cool.

Demon allie: Totally. Evan, I want you to meet my little friend.

I’ve got moderate to severe

plaque psoriasis.

Ciara: I never should have believed her. Ben, I saw you lying there. But in my heart, I didn’t believe that it was real. I didn’t– I didn’t feel like you were actually gone. And then I went into labor, and then–

Ben: I can’t believe– I can’t believe that you just gave birth to our baby boy… with that beast inside allie with you.

Ciara: I didn’t know who she really was, not until after bo was born.

Ben: And then she showed you.

Ciara: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, ben, it was horrible. She was standing there with bo in her arms, and I asked her to give him to me, and she wouldn’T. She wouldn’t give me my son, and then she turned at me with those eyes. I saw her eyes, ben. I saw her eyes, and I knew exactly who I was looking at.

Ben: You never got to hold our son?

Ciara: Mm-mm. The devil took that away from me. Ben, what if I never get to hold our son?

Evan: What the–

Demon allie: Ah, ah, ah. Don’t throw that word around willy-nilly.

Evan: What is going on? Who is that baby?

Demon allie: Why do you look so alarmed? Never see a proud parent before?

Evan: Not one with glowing eyes and a creepy-as-hell voice.

Demon allie: There you go again, just talking about you-know-where.

Evan: What is this? Who are you?

Demon allie: I think, if you search your soul, you’ll find you already know the answer to that. I tried to tell you at the prison, but you were just so focused on getting out. People call me all kinds of names, but you probably know me as the devil incarnate.

[Dramatic music]

Lani: What could you have possibly found out that would make tr want to kill you?

Eli: I caught him in the park with drugs. He had drugs on him, lani–heroin.

Lani: No. No, that can’t be. He–he told me that he was clean. He promised me and paulina that he hasn’t been using since he went to prison years ago.

Eli: I know that’s what he told you. It’s all an act. Lani, he’s still using. And he’s still abusing women.

Lani: Beth said that he has never laid a hand on her and that he’s been the perfect gentleman. She told me herself.

Eli: She told me a different story at the station.

Lani: Well, what exactly did she say?

Eli: She said that tr– that he was using the entire relationship and he was abusing her. Lani, I’m sorry. But that’s why I went to the park looking for him.

Lani: Beth came to see me at the hospital. She said she had something to say, but then tr came in, and she left.

Eli: Probably because tr got to her first. I’m sure she wanted to tell you the truth.

Lani: I should have known. Oh, my–I should have known that she was lying. I should have recognized that he had threatened her, and–and–

[Sighs] I wanted so badly to believe that– that he was a good man, that he had pulled his life together.

Eli: Baby, I’m sorry. But your father is the same woman-beating addict that brutalized paulina all those years ago.

Tr: I’ll say it again. Good night, abe.

Abe: I am not leaving until I see paulina.

Tr: You’re gonna make me slam this door in your face.

[Cell phone rings]

[Tense music]

Abe: Hello? Ah, tripp. Any news on eli? What? Oh, well, that’s incredible. Yes, yes, I’ll share the news with paulina. I’m at her place right now. All right, I’ll be down there soon.

Tr: Good news?

Abe: Yes. Eli’s awake… and talking.

Tr: Praise god.

Excuse me.

Tr: Ah, ah, ah. What are you doing?

Abe: I’m going to share the news with paulina, of course.

Tr: Oh, that’s all right. I’ll do that.

Abe: While you’re on your way out of town with her? Like hell. Now move! Ah! [Groans]

Tr: I told your ass she was busy.

[Dramatic music]

My asthma felt anything but normal.

Lani: I cannot believe I fell for tr’s reformed act. I let that man into my… I let that man into my life, into our children’s lives. Like, how did I not see through his lies?

Eli: He’s obviously good at fooling people. He convinced paulina, and she saw him at his worst.

Lani: He didn’t fool you.

Eli: I just followed a hunch.

Lani: And it almost cost you your life. That bastard shot you with your own gun and left you to die in a park.

Eli: I survived, baby. I’m still here.

Lani: Yeah, no thanks to him.

[Chuckles] My so-called father would’ve left me a widow, would’ve taken away his grandchildren’s father, just to hide his dirty little secrets.

Eli: We’ll deal with him.

Lani: Yeah. You are damn right, I am going to deal with him.

Eli: Lani, no. I do not want you confronting that man alone. He’s dangerous when he’s cornered.

Lani: He needs to be cornered in a prison cell.

Eli: Yeah, and he will be. Call this in to rafe. Let the rest of the department deal with it. Do you know where tr is?

[Dramatic music]

Lani: Oh… oh, my god. Oh, my god, my eli. He’s back, my… oh, my god, my eli is back. Oh, my god.

[Elevator bell dings] P-p-paulina?

Oh, no.

Eli: What is it?

Lani: [Sighs] He’s with my mother.

Tr: You couldn’t leave well enough alone, could you, mr. Mayor? Look what you made me do. Just like that meddling eli.

Paulina: I’ll be right out! Oh. It’s just you?

Tr: Who else would it be?

Paulina: Well, I… I thought I heard voices.

Tr: Oh, uh, that was a religious group. They were handing out pamphlets, “praise god.”

[Laughs] I guess… they were trying to save our immortal souls.

Evan: You’re… the devil?

Demon allie: In the flesh. Do you like this body?

Evan: The devil. Satan? Lucifer? Beelzebub?

Demon allie: Never was a fan of that last one.

Evan: I can’t believe this.

Demon allie: I mean, surely you knew I was back in town for my silver anniversary. I know you were in prison, but I’m kind of a big deal around these parts.

Evan: My father did tell me about marlena evans being possessed, but all the news reports said that there was an exorcism. They called it the christmas miracle.

Demon allie: Well, you really shouldn’t believe everything you read online. The internet is a hellhole of misinformation.

Evan: So… at the exorcism, you jumped out of dr. Evans’ body and into this random girl’s body?

Demon allie: This “random girl” happens to be marlena’s pastry-baking, bisexual granddaughter, allie horton.

Evan: You went into her granddaughter?

Demon allie: Not right away. After that nitwit father eric banished me from marlena, I actually went into her grandson, johnny. Then there was a brief pit stop in her nosy little daughter, belle, until I landed on my current host.

Evan: You trying to spend time with marlena’s whole family?

Demon allie: Let’s just say the sins of the matriarch have befallen her progeny.

Ciara: Allie… when allie was holding bo, I thought I saw her struggling. I thought for one second she might be able to push him out.

Ben: Well, that’s a good sign. That means allie–someone’s still in there. And she’s not gonna let the devil hurt bo.

Ciara: Ben, she’s not gonna be able to resist him. He’s way too strong.

Ben: Whoa, easy, easy. You just had a baby.

Ciara: Yeah, so?

Ben: So you are in no condition to go chasing after satan right now, okay?

Ciara: That doesn’t matter now, ben. I am a mother. I’m a mom, and it is my job to protect my child.

Ben: Your job right now is to rest. I will go find allie and bo as soon as we go get some help, okay?

Ciara: Oh, my god, there is no way. I’m never gonna let you face that alone, and I’m not going to rest, not until my son is in my arms again!

Ben: You need to rest. Ciara, sit down!

Ciara: Ben, I don’t care!

Ben: Please sit down.

Ciara: Oh, my god, rafe.

Rafe: Oh, my god, ciara… oh, kiddo. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry this is happening to you.

Evan: So this whole thing is about getting revenge on marlena for tossing you out 25 years ago?

Demon allie: [Laughs] You mortals and your simplistic understanding of motives.

Evan: It’s a fair question.

Demon allie: If I wanted revenge on marlena, I could have snapped my fingers and wiped out her entire family line.

Evan: So why possess her again? Why possess her granddaughter?

Demon allie: Well, if i showed you allie horton’s resume, you’d understand my choice. After everything she’s been through in her short life, tragic little allie horton is the perfect host. And she’s proved ideal in my procurement of this little bundle of despair.

Evan: That’s ben and ciara’s baby, isn’t it?

Demon allie: Look, you figured it out.

Evan: What do you plan to do with him?

Rafe: What were you thinking, wanting to leave here?

Ciara: I was thinking–I was thinking that I needed to go look for my baby, rafe.

Rafe: Yeah, but not in your condition. You need to get to the hospital.

Ciara: I need to find my baby, rafe. We should all be out here, looking for him.

Ben: Do you have any leads?

Rafe: Honestly, I thought that allie was gonna be here.

Ben: Well, maybe she’s still on the island.

Ciara: Great, well, then, that is why we should be searching.

Rafe: Ciara, ciara, it’s okay. I have got people searching everywhere. In fact, when they found out that bo and hope brady’s grandson was missing, everyone volunteered to join in the search.

Ciara: Thank you.

Rafe: Yeah.

Ciara: Thank you.

Rafe: You don’t have to thank me, all right? You don’T. Listen, you’re family. Right? This is personal.

Ben: I’m gonna get her to the hospital and get her checked out.

Ciara: Ben, please, just–

Ben: No, ciara. Rafe is right. You just had our baby here prematurely with no medical supervision. We need to get you checked out and make sure that you’re healthy. Bo is going to need his mother to be strong. Okay? Okay?

Ciara: Oh… rafe, promise me you’re not going to stop until you find him.

Rafe: Listen to me. You need to trust me when I say this. I will not stop. I will turn smith island, salem, hell, the entire world upside down until I bring your son back to you.

Lani: I have to warn paulina about tr before it’s too late.

Eli: Are you sure paulina’s with him?

Lani: Yes. I saw them getting into an elevator, and they looked really cozy.

Paulina: Why do I pay to live in a building with a doorman if they’re just gonna let any kind of weirdo up to my door? Oh, I’m gonna give them a piece of my mind. Where’s my phone?

Tr: Paulina, paulina, paulina.

Paulina: What?

Tr: We really have to get going on our trip. We can tell the doorman when we get downstairs.

Paulina: Oh, well, what’s the rush?

Tr: It’s no rush. I–I just can’t wait to get you all to myself.

Paulina: Uh-huh.

Tr: What’s wrong?

Paulina: Well, I just don’t– I still don’t feel right about leaving lani and eli at a time like this.

Tr: You aren’t leaving them. Like I said, you’ll only be a phone call away if anything happens. But paulina, you have to take care of yourself too. Let me take care of you.

Paulina: [Chuckles] Okay. Well, let’s get this romantic weekend started.

Tr: That’s what I’m talking about.

[Both laughing]

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Demon allie: “What are you going to do with the baby?” “What are you going to do with the baby?” Do you have any idea how tired i am of people asking me that?

Evan: I’m just asking.

Demon allie: And it is nobody’s business. Ever since I made sure ciara got pregnant, it is all I’ve heard. Not, you know, “is hell a dry heat, like arizona, or a humid one, like louisiana?” Or “how long did it take for cerberus to become housebroken?” Or “are you responsible for robocalls?”, Which yes, I am.

Evan: [Laughs] Figures.

Demon allie: But no, you humans have a one-track mind, always seeking to understand the unknowable, and it is really annoying.

Evan: Well, at the risk of turning into a pillar of salt…

Demon allie: That’s the other guy’s thing.

Evan: Right. Anyway, you and I are supposed to be partners, right?

Demon allie: Hardly equal partners, but okay.

Evan: Don’t you think i deserve to know what you have in store for ben and ciara’s brat?

Demon allie: It is your lucky day, evan frears. As a reward for helping me convince ciara that that lunk, jake dimera, was her dead husband, you’ll become the first mortal on earth to learn what i have in store for little bo weston.

[Line trilling]

Lani: Damn it. Voice mail again. Paulina, it’s me. Listen to me, okay? Ray is the one who shot eli. He is dangerous, and you need to get away from him right now. Okay, please call me back as soon as you get this, and do not let tr know that we are on to him.


Eli: It’s gonna be okay.

Lani: No, I mean, I need to get to her before–she could be in real trouble, eli.

Eli: Lani, you need to call in backup.

Lani: Every available officer is out looking for ciara’s baby.

Eli: Well, there’s gotta be someone out there who can help.

Lani: I don’t need help. Tr needs to be arrested for what he did to you, and I want to be the one to do it. Okay?

Eli: No! Lani!

Lani: Love you.

Tr: I’ve been waiting a lot of years for this second chance.

Paulina: Okay, let’s do it.

[Both laughing]

Abe: [Groans]

Paulina: Did you hear that?

Tr: I didn’t hear anything.

Paulina: Well, I did, and i know my ears aren’t playing tricks on me.

Tr: Paulina, we gotta go, baby.

Paulina: It sounds like it came from over there.

Tr: There’s nothing over there.

Paulina: Oh, my god! Abraham!

Julie: Oh, lani! Oh, thank… tripp just gave me the wonderful news. Eli’s awake!

Lani: Yeah, he is. Um, where are the twins?

Julie: Oh, I got your regular babysitter. They were snoozing when I left.

Lani: Julie, I’m sorry. I need to go.

Julie: Well, everything’s all right, isn’t it?

Lani: No, it’s not. I need to find paulina.

Julie: Well, she’s with your father.

Lani: You saw paulina with tr?

Julie: Not tr, darling. Your real father, abraham.

Lani: What?

Julie: I was just with him, and he has come to the realization he still loves paulina, so I sent him to her to get her back.

Lani: Oh, no. Oh, my god.

Julie: Lani… lani, what’s going on?

[Dramatic music]

[Gentle music]

Eli: Hey, grandma! What’s new?

Julie: Oh, honey! You’ve come back to us. That’s what’s new. You’ll never know how happy I am to see you awake, to hear you call me “grandma.”

Eli: I’m happy to see you too.

Julie: Don’t you ever give me a scare like that again, do you hear me?

Eli: I’ll do my best, grandma.

Julie: Well, I’m happy to report, I just came from the twins, and little jules and carver just cannot wait to see their daddy again.

Eli: Can’t wait to see them, too. Doug–doug. How is doug?

Julie: Oh, he’s so much better than he was a couple of months ago. Thank you for asking.

Eli: I’m glad to hear it.

Julie: Well, sweetie, I must tell you, I was expecting sort of a different mood when I got here. I ran into lani, and she seemed so disturbed about something, but she ran off before I had a chance to ask her what had happened.

Eli: She just received some really disturbing news. Grandma, I gotta tell you something. You’re not gonna like it.

Julie: You’re frightening me, sweetheart. Just tell me what it is.

Eli: I remember who shot me.

Julie: You do. Who was it?

Eli: It was lani’s father. It was tr coates.

Paulina: He’s bleeding! What the hell did you do to him?

Tr: Listen, listen, paulina. This is not what it looks like.

Paulina: Oh, the hell with you! I’m dialing 911.

Tr: No, you don’t have to do that.

Paulina: Oh, what–missed call from lani? Oh!

Tr: I’m sorry, paulina. I can’t let you make that call.

Nurse: You should start to feel a lot better once you get some fluids in you.

Ciara: I feel fine. What would make me feel better is if I could help with the search party.

Nurse: Get some rest, okay?

[Soft music]

Ciara: I hate sitting here, doing nothing.

Ben: You are not doing nothing. You just gave birth.

Ciara: Baby, you know what i mean.

Ben: Ciara, the best thing that you can do for our son right now is to take care of yourself, because when we bring bo home, he’s gonna need a healthy mom. Okay?

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: I know. And I will be. Ben, I only got to see him for a few minutes, and he was so beautiful, and he was so tiny and fragile.

Ben: I’m sure he’s pretty tiny, but I’m also sure that he’s gonna be very strong, just like his mom.

Ciara: [Whimpers] I don’t even have a picture of him. Oh, my god. I’m so scared. Ben, I am so scared.

[Quiet piano music]

Evan: Well, don’t keep me in suspense.

Demon allie: All right. Well, when you’ve been around forever, time becomes a little bit relative.

Evan: You said you’d tell me your plan.

Demon allie: It’ll feel good to tell someone. You know, sometimes it’s frustrating being this clever and this evil and having no one to share it with.

Evan: I’ve been told I’m a good listener.

Demon allie: Right. Well, as I was saying, after managing to temporarily possess marlena and various members of her family, to varying degrees of success, I decided that it was time for me to take residence in a more permanent dwelling.

Evan: So you’re gonna possess the baby.

Demon allie: Well, “possess” is not the exact word I would use for this process. You see, when you take over a human soul, you run the risk of their true nature constantly fighting you to get back to their loved ones.

Evan: So is this allie fighting you right now?

Demon allie: Like a tiger. And I must admit, she almost got through after little bo here was born. But with him, I won’t have that problem, because his soul is just as new and shiny as he is. There’s no time for him to form those pesky little bonds with his natural-born family that made marlena and the others fight me so hard. Think of bo here as my earthly do-over. He and I will get a whole lifetime together.

[Eerie music]

Your heart is at the heart of everything you do.

Evan: So how is this going to work? If you’re taking over the baby’s soul, are you planning to have ben and ciara, like, raise you?

Demon allie: No. I’m afraid ben and ciara’s part in this is over. And actually, that’s where you come in. It’s going to be a lot easier for the proper caretaker that I’m selecting if ben and ciara aren’t constantly trying to get their son back.

Evan: What do you want me to do about it?

Demon allie: It’s simple. I want you to kill ciara and ben weston.

Ciara: [Crying]

Ben: A few years ago, if something like this had happened, I would’ve said, “of course. It’s what I deserve.” But sitting here with you right now, ciara, I don’t feel that way. I don’t feel fear or despair. Yes, it’s a dark time, but… I feel hope.

Ciara: How?

Ben: Because we have to stay positive. And you are the one who taught me that. You taught me that just by loving me and believing in me, and I believe that we are going to see our son again. We have to, and I know it. I know it. Do you hear me?

Ciara: Yeah. I hear you. And I believe it, too. I have to. But, ben, there’s something that I need you to do for me.

Ben: Anything.

Ciara: I need you to go.

Ben: Ciara–

Ciara: Baby, there are plenty of doctors and nurses here who will take care of me. I don’t need you hanging around here. I need you going. I need you to go and join the search party.

Ben: Are you sure?

Ciara: Go bring our little baby bo home. Go find our son, ben.

Ben: I am going to find our son. I promise you. Okay? I promise you.

[Tender music]

Julie: Tr did this to you?

Eli: Yeah.

Julie: I knew it. I knew he was bad news from the get-go.

Eli: Grandma, you’re a good judge of character.

Julie: I never imagined he would try to murder my grandson. If I ever get my hands on him…

Eli: Okay, grandma… listen, that’s not good for your heart.

Julie: Forget about my heart. I just sent abe over to paulina’s apartment to explain that he’s still in love with her. What if tr is there? What if I have just put paulina and abe in harm’s way?

Eli: Grandma, lani is on her way over there right now.

Julie: Oh, god.

Paulina: In god’s name, what is this?

Tr: I can explain if you let me.

Paulina: The hell you can. You haven’t changed at all, have you, ray? You’re still the same lying, violent dog you always were!

Tr: You don’t know what you’re talking about.

Paulina: Give me back my damn phone. Give me my phone! Give me my–

Tr: Get off of me, woman. You better get away from me.

Paulina: You’re gonna hit me? Oh, you’re gonna hit me. Go ahead! Go ahead! I’m not that scared little girl you used to beat up on, not anymore. I’m not afraid of you. Go ahead, you coward!

Lani: You son of a bitch.

Tr: Lani. Baby, I can explain.

Interview with Galen Gering and Lamon Archey

TV Interview!

Lamon Archey (Eli) on Days of Our Lives on NBC; photo from NBC Galen Gering DAYS OF OUR LIVES -- Season: 55 -- Fifty Fifth Anniversary Portrait -- Pictured: Galen Gering as Rafe Hernandez -- (Photo by: Chris Haston/NBC)

 Interview with Lamon Archey and Galen Gering of “Days of Our Lives” by Suzanne 2/20/22

This was an online fan event called, “Days Of Our Lives Q&A Zoom Salem’s Hottest Cops Lamon Archey & Galen Gering.” Although I’m a journalist, I’m also a fan of “Days of Our Lives” and other soaps, so I was happy to pay a small fee (which goes to charity, anyway) to see these two and ask them a question. It was a lot of fun. I wish I had the chance to ask more questions. Maybe someday I will!

Here is the video of my question. You can’t hear me because of the way it was recorded (you can see me at the top, in the little box, asking it). I asked them what they would like to see their character do that they haven’t done before. They gave great answers! Then, below is the transcript of the entire chat. Thane is also another contributor to our site there, and he asks a question as well.  It was very funny to listen to the actors joke around with each other and the fans, and about their characters.

Moderator:   Okay women, behave.

Woman:   Never.

Woman:   It’s funny the majority of the people that I’m doing the other thing with is mostly female, one guy who’s the lawyer

Woman:   Galen. Hello.

Galen:   Hey, everybody.


Woman:   I think he’s driving.

Galen:   He is driving. Is this legal? I don’t know.

Moderator:   Okay, good. We’re just waiting for Lamon.

Galen:   Oh, we could be waiting a long time

Woman:   The last time I saw you on Instagram with Tamara, you were in a car.

Galen:   Oh, my god. That’s so true. By the way, those are the only two times I’ve ever been in a car… on one of these, that is.

Woman:   Are you gonna drink while you’re in your car?

Galen:   I think it’s tequila from yesterday.

Woman:   You’ve been playing golf?

Galen:   Yeah, I went out and played nine holes. I have this big tournament this weekend. So, I had to practice a little bit.

Woman:   You throw any shoes at anybody while they’re trying to make a buck?

Galen:   Oh, you saw that video. You know what’s funny is that was on my birthday last year. Yeah, it was right around my birthday last year. So, not far from that, a year ago today.

Women:   Happy belated birthday.

Galen:   Thank you. Yeah, that’s my buddy [unintelligible] he’s a super funny writer. He’s a stand up comedian, too. But man, he’s the slowest golfer on the planet. And we’re like, “Dude, come on!” He said something like, “You guys. You’ve got to be quiet so I can golf straight.” And then I was like, “Oh, do we?”

Woman:   Congratulations on your Rams winning the Super Bowl.

Galen:   Oh, my god. Thanks. I know. You know, what’s funny is –

Woman:   I wasn’t rooting for them.

Woman:   I was; I rooted for them.

Galen:   I know you were. My 49er girl.

Woman:   Yeah, because they knocked them out of the Super Bowl.

Galen:   I know, what a crazy game. Right?

Woman:   Right. Right. Yeah.

Galen:   Honestly, you know I’ve got love for the 49ers. I lived in Northern California. So, if the Rams weren’t in it, I would totally have been rooting for them. In fact, I was rooting for them when they lost in the Super Bowl a couple years ago. Remember that?

Woman:   Right. Right.

Galen:   That’s two heartbreaks.

Woman:   Yeah, I know. Right? Now, we’re gonna lose Jimmy Garoppolo.

Galen:   Yeah. I mean –

Woman:   He’s gonna go follow Brady.

Woman:   Well, the Niners… they want him to come out of retirement.

Galen:   Oh.

Woman:   Because he’s from here. So, you know, he’s from San Mateo. So, he wouldn’t do that.

Galen:   What do you think the chances of that are?

Woman:   I mean, the sky’s the limit for the guy. I mean, he can do whatever he wants. He can go play with the Niners for a year. Well, I’m sure Giselle wants him home.

Galen:   Oh, yeah. How old are his kids?

Woman:   They’re like 12 and 10, or something like that. They’re young.

Galen:   How many years in the league? 22 is it?

Woman:   Yeah, he’s 22 years. Yeah.

Galen:   I mean, that guy.

Woman:   He’s like a machine. He’s like a machine. He’s amazing.

Galen:   He is a machine.

Woman:   He’s a machine. He’s probably not human. We’re gonna find out he’s a Terminator.

Galen:   I don’t know. I don’t think he’s gonna come back.

Woman:   Well, you never know… you might get bored after you know, a year.

Galen:   Yeah, that’s true. Sorry, I’m just looking for headphones. Ill-prepared. Oh, well.

Woman:   I’d like to talk to and see what Lamon’s thoughts are on it, too, because he’s from San Mateo.

Galen:   He’s from where? San Mateo?

Woman:   He’s from San Mateo.

Galen:   Where is that?

Woman:   It’s It’s near San Francisco. We’re 30 minutes South.

Galen:   No, I mean, where’s Lamon?


Woman:   Yeah, I messaged him and haven’t heard anything back yet. Do you want to get started?

Moderator:   Yeah. So we’ll get started and see what happens when Lamon comes on. So, on behalf of Penny and Star Image Entertainment, we would like to thank Galen for taking the time to do this today, especially fresh off the golf course. We really appreciate it. So, first, we’re going to bring up Francis. Francis, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hey, Galen, it’s nice to see you again. I was here the last time you were here.

Galen:   Thank you so much.

Woman:   I actually don’t have a question. I just wanted to say I’m enjoying the storyline. They’re giving you a little bit more storyline lately. So, I’m enjoying it. I’m enjoying it. But yeah, I just wanted to say hi and say thank you for doing this. I remember way back when in your Passions days, that wasn’t yesterday. So, I just want to wish you all the best and just say hi, just basically all I wanted to do was to say hi to you, and thank you for taking the time to do this.


Galen:   I know you have a question for me.

Woman:   No, I don’t. You can ask me if you want. You can ask me if you want. I got nothing, honestly, I don’t.

Galen:   Where are you?

Woman:   I’m in Montreal.

Galen:   Okay. Wow. Is it freezing there right now?

Woman:   Oh, yeah. It’s starting to go down, isn’t it, Penny, starting to go down again? It’s starting to go down again. It’s gotten cold. It was like a cold weekend or cold a few days ago. Then it got warm again. Now it’s cold again. So it’s up and down like a yo-yo.

Galen:   Well, thank you for for being here today. It’s so great. I love to see all familiar faces out there. Truly.

Woman:   Yeah. Well, thank you for taking the time to do this. It’s nice that you guys actually take the time to do this.

Galen:   My pleasure.

Woman:   So, you have a good week.

Galen:   Okay.

Moderator:   Thanks, Francis. Next, we’re going to bring up Michelle Liebowitz. Michelle, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hey, Galen, I’m Michelle, I live in Florida. I know you are a big blooper person. What is your most memorable blooper that you could tell us about?

Galen:   That I could tell you about? Well, I’ll tell you guys anything. I feel like the one that’s my favorite one – I’ve told the story of… but I’ll tell you again. And if you’ve heard it, I’ll think of another one. And to be honest with you, the kind of sad part about the whole thing is, I mean, now on Days, so the best bloopers were on Passions. On Passions, we were just out of control. Like, we even have, like, a full-on vendetta against one another as cast mates all the time and against the crew. So, it was crazy.  Like, there was a time I came into my dressing room in the mornings, like seven in the morning. No furniture, nothing. nada, nothing. It was just gone. Didn’t even know where it was. And it was really funny at first… until I was, like, sitting there for, like, two hours on the floor, like, “This is not cool.” But I will say one of my favorite pranks that I pulled was on Chris Douglas. This was on Passions, and he played my brother, Antonio, and he was in a coma for a long time. So, like they always put us in comas on that show, especially if you’ve done something wrong, which we were kind of doing all the time. So, then they would write you in a coma. So, he’s in a coma, and I….. just saw my bike here. – By the way, I have to pick up my bike; remind me when we get off, if anyone has a good memory, to get my bike. – So, at lunchtime, I snuck into the studio, and I put in this thing , it’s called a scat mat, which is designed to keep pets off furniture. So, what happens is the pet would jump up on the furniture, and then it would sense it, and then it would ramp up, and then, I mean, it’s a pretty good shock, like it’s pretty good. So, I put that in his coma bed, and then he got into the bed and was lying there, and all of a sudden he’s like, “Ahhh! You son of a bitch!” I was in the studio laughing, and they had to put these EKG things [on him], you know what I mean? He ripped them off and started chasing me around the studio. That was one of my favorites, just because it was pretty unique. We see all kinds of crazy stuff. We would steal the producer’s car, executive producer Carly’s, and we’d move her car, but somewhere we would fill people’s cars full of fake snow. [It was] just insane. We’re kind of out of control, but it was a lot of fun.

Woman:   That’s awesome.

Galen:   Now we can barely even make a joke. There’s just not time, you know?

Moderator:   Great question, Michelle. Thank you. Next we’re going to bring up Ina. Ina, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hey, Galen.

Galen:   Hey, how are you?

Woman:   Good to see you too. I’m from Staten Island, New York. I guess my question is, I just thought of it, actually, since you’re in the car. What is your favorite car?

Galen:   Ooh, that’s a good question. I don’t have one favorite car per se, but like my son, one of my older sons, he’s super into cars. He’s like, “Dad, why don’t you just have this truck?”…Like he’s really into cars, and so he asked me the same question. He’s like, “Well, what if you could get [your] own sports car or something like that?” For me, I would think something like a really cool vintage – I actually was just looking at this old Ferrari you know, kind of like the Magnum PI, a little different, but just a little kind of like 80s funky style, or even a much older one. Or an all Porsche something like kind of classic like that. My friend was going to borrow my car the other day to go to Mammoth, and he has a McLaren. You guys know what that is? Crazy sports car. The doors opening up on the side. Like they go vertically. It’s like a little rocket ship. And I was like, “Oh, this is pretty cool,” but then I ended up going up there and meeting them and taking my car. So, I didn’t have a car for the weekend, but that would have been fun. But I don’t know. Maybe. Maybe we’ll get something soon.

Woman:   I actually like SUVs. I like trucks.

Galen:   Yeah, me too. I have two boys. And we’re just always throwing bikes, and I’m like, I have to get my bike and throw it in right now.

Moderator:   Thank you. Next we’re gonna bring up Sue [unintelligible]. So, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, Galen. What’s up? I’m from Mineola Island New York. [unintelligible] you can’t really see, because I have my picture in the background. That’s my leg by the way, Galen. You can’t really see it, but i have a Days tattoo.

Galen:   Where’s your leg? Oh.

Woman:   So yeah, I’ve been watching the show since I was like seven, eight years old, and I’m going to be 42 on Mother’s Day. So, you know, I can’t help it. I’ve loved the show all my life. I had a question that just left my brain. Okay, I remember now. What’s it been like working like working off between Tamara and Ari, because, I mean, I the storyline’s been, like, killer, between Ava and Nicole and Rafe and stuff? And I really love how you guys are doing it. I know that Soap Opera Digest says that next week or something in the next like week or so they actually come clean to Ava, so I’m wondering, what’s it been like between the two of them and stuff? How’s it been like working with the two of them and everything?

Galen:   Sure. Good question. Honestly, they’re amazing. Like, they’re both very different as people, but great and obviously very talented. I really liked working with Tamara, and, like the Rafe/Ava story. I don’t think that they thought that the couple or sort of like pseudo-couple, for those two was going to work as well as it did. Then, I felt like they thought they were like, “Oh, let’s keep this going for a while and see how it goes,” because it seemed like it was just going to be this like quick thing that was gonna explode, and then ended up staying together for quite a while. So, it was great. And she’s so volatile and she kind of scares the crap out of me. Honestly. I told her she just has this look. She’s like, “[unintelligible].” I’m like, “Yeah, you’re freaking scary. I feel like you would totally stab me in the neck with a pencil or something.” Hilarious. And then Ari, you know, she’s just kind of wild and funny, and Tamara is a little bit more sort of reserved, whatever, but both really fun and talented, and I love when the three of us actually also have scenes together and –

Woman:   It’s a lot of fun watching you guys work off each other it really is.

Galen:   Thanks. Thanks. Yeah.

Woman:   And you do have some time for for bloopers, because [unintelligible] posted a blooper while back of you fucking with Brock Kelly like the whole like David thing. “Where’s David?” You’re like, “It’s the popo!” You guys mess with Brock so bad.

Galen:   That’s right; I do remember that.

Woman:   You kept laughing. But you have some time for jokes. I like when [unintelligible] posts a little bloopers sometimes between all of you. Like, it makes it real for us. Like, you do like mess around; you do have fun. You do mess up every now and again. But it’s cool.

Galen:   Boy, you know, it’s easy. Actually, there are times when I’m not even meaning to do it. I saw some the other day that haven’t aired yet, with Billy Flynn. He and I are just like, it’s like our work. We always just connect with one another on the sort of like, where’s the honesty level, and I was just thinking something. I wasn’t even thinking something funny. So, he has this really intense scene, and he’s coming in to me, to the police station, and then I’m just looking at him, and I’m just checking, and he’s like, “Bro, don’t do that.” And then I’m like, “I’m not even doing anything.” I’m like, “Don’t you do that.” You know? So, then, now he’s got me thinking that I’m doing something to him and accusing me of it now on camera. So, I’m like, maybe I should do something. I don’t really do much of anything. But then he started laughing, and he’s freaking out on set, and then I started laughing. So, I guess we still do have fun, and we just don’t really set up like elaborate pranks, you know what I mean? Before it was like crazy.

Woman:   Yeah Eric Martsolf had mentioned that to me. He’s like, “On Passions, we could just do whatever the hell we wanted to. We’d screw with each other all the time.”

Galen:   Oh, yeah. We would be 5, 6, 7, 8 takes in, and then the producers would get on the microphone, and they’re like yelling at us. “Come on. We’re gonna move your scenes to another day.” And we’d be like, “Okay.” Now it’s like, “Oh, sorry, sorry.” You like mess up once or twice and you feel like you’re holding up the whole day. It’s just different. Well, we still have fun. It’s just different.

Woman:   I really been enjoying your scenes lately. And I can’t thank you enough. I’m sure Rafe gets off from the trumped charges that Ava was set up on him. I know you can’t say anything, but yeah, I’m really enjoying this. I mean, I know I can’t wait for it to come back tomorrow. It’s like, oh, thank God.

Galen:   Oh, yeah. The Olympics are over.

Woman:   Tomorrow. Finally. Thank God. I’m excited. Yay. All right, cool.

Galen:   It’s the closing ceremony tonight.

Woman:   Yeah, it’s it’s great. I’m waiting, and I’m excited to see what you guys have in store for us the next.

Moderator:   Thank you, Susie.

Woman:   Thank you.

Galen:   Thank you.

Moderator:   Next we’re going to bring up Betty Jean. Betty Jean, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hey, Galen. I’m from New Jersey, but I live up here in Nevada City.

Galen:   Yeah, you do.

Woman:   You remember?

Galen:   I do. You’re in your back yard right now?

Woman:   That’s actually my front yard. That’s the water feature in our front yard.

Woman:   Okay. Hold one second Betty Jean, Lamon is here.

Woman:   About time.

Woman:   There he is.

Lamon:   Hello, hello. My apologies for being late. Hi. Hello. I turned off my –

Galen:   Brain?

Lamon:   The whole Wi-Fi, I had turned it off, because it was going so slow. Then, I couldn’t get it back on, but now I’m here.

Woman:   Welcome, Lamon.

Galen:   You must have been panicking.

Lamon:   I was. I was, I was calling Spectrum and everything.

Moderator:   Go ahead, Betty Jean.

Woman:   Galen knows that I live up here in Nevada City. Have you been up in this area at all since you’ve moved away?

Galen:   Oh, yeah, I’ve been there. Man. It’s been a minute though. I’d say probably like, well, you know, time flies. I’d say like, 10 years, but it’s probably more like 15. I’ve been close to there are a lot, but no. I love to see it, though. I bet it’s so quaint and charming as ever, right?

Woman:   Yeah, yeah. Christmas card. Yeah.

Galen:   Yeah. So, for those of you guys who don’t know, it’s just like a cool old gold mining town in northern California and just like one really picturesque Main Street and little offshoots. I mean, you could probably speak to it better since you actually live there, but that was my memory.

Woman:   Yes, it’s still pretty much the same. It’s going through its ebbs and flows of economic revitalization. Like they just redid the National Hotel. They redid the restaurant in there, and they named it the Lola after Lola Montez. So, they’re sticking with the history. So, it’s nice.

Galen:   it’s a beautiful hotel.

Woman:   We’re hoping to get some snow this weekend. We really need the precipitation. We had some storms back in December, but we really haven’t had any.

Galen:   Did you guys get a ton of snow when it snowed like that big, like 10 days?

Woman:   We did. We had two feet when we were out. We had power out. A lot of trees came down this this year and a lot of damage done, and they’re still cleaning up from that. So, it melts off, and then that’s it. So, we’re hoping that Wednesday we get some more.

Galen:   Yeah, fingers crossed. Same here.

Moderator:   Thanks, Betty Jane.

Woman:   You’re welcome. Nice seeing you, Lamon. Sorry you were late.

Moderator:   Next, we’re going to bring up Draya. Draya, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, Lamon. Hi, Galen. I’m from Florida. My question is actually for both of you. What’s your most embarrassing moment on set? Either on Days or Passions, Galen?

Galen:   Oh, man, it looks like Lamon already thought of one.

Lamon:   Yeah. I actually posted mine. My most embarrassing moment was when I was in the middle of shooting a scene with Sal. It was on our wedding, and she looks, and she points she at my nose, and she goes, “Can we get a tissue for Lamon? You have like a little booger right there, and I don’t want to kiss on your booger.”

Woman:   Oh, no!

Lamon:   Oh, my god, I was so embarrassed. We had a cast on set. It was probably like maybe 10 or 12 of us and everybody was sitting there watching, and then everybody looks at me, and I’m like, “What is it?” because I can’t see myself. I was super embarrassed. I was really embarrassed.

Galen:   Was that like the wedding or something?

Lamon:   Yeah.

Galen:   I think I was there that day. I remember that. I saw it on the feed or something. I was like, “Oh, that’s embarrassing.”

Lamon:   Yeah, that was really embarrassing. I’ll never forget that. But I have the video to remember it.

Galen:   I mean, she could have like pulled you aside a little bit, but she kind of [unintelligible]

Lamon:   That’s what I’m saying! She could have pulled me to the side and said, “Lamon, go get a tissue, because you have like a little boogie right there.” And I was like, “Oh [intelligible],” but no, she let everyone know. “Can we get a tissue for Lamon?” Yeah, so good times. Go ahead, Galen. What’s yours?

Galen:   I mean, honestly, I don’t think I’ve ever been that embarrassed on set

Lamon:   You weren’t embarrassed you had to speak to a teddy bear?

Galen:   That’s messed up, bro. [unintelligible], I think, for me, and you know, what’s funny is like, something happened. And I think I like just blacked it out of my memory, because I remember saying, “Oh, next time I get asked what my most embarrassing moment is, I have this,” and I cannot even remember for the life of me. But I will say like, maybe a little different than embarrassing, but it’s like, awful, because like sometimes embarrassing [unintelligible] if it’s not awful, you’re like, “Oh my god, I can’t -” But the awful one is when you’ve got a scene or a bunch of scenes, and in one scene, you just keep going up. Like you can’t get the words right, or the phraseology, or whatever it is. Then, you start to get a little sweat going, and you get a little hot, and you’re thinking it, and then the makeup [unintelligible] starts tapping on you and only makes you sweat more. And then everyone’s looking at you. And I mean, it’s happened a couple times. That’s the worst.

Woman:   Not the orangutan from Passions, Galen?

Galen:   I mean, that was awful, mostly. Most people liked it, but he used to regurgitate in my face… it would hit the back of my arm so hard. Thing was shedding dandruff on you constantly, it was so gross. It smelled like a rotten, I don’t know what. You know what I’m saying?

Moderator:   Thank you, Draya.

Woman:   [unintelligible] sanctuary now.

Galen:   Yeah, that’s where they belong, in the jungle.

Woman:   Thanks, Draya.

Lamon:   I’m sure we’ll have plenty more embarrassing moments to talk about as the days go on.

Moderator:   Next, we’re gonna bring up Linda Williamson. Linda, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   I’m from Western Washington State. My question is, what is the most physically adventurous thing you’ve ever done?

Galen:   Is that for Lamon or for me?

Woman:   Both.

Galen:   Okay. You got anything for that, Lamon? I know you don’t do much.

Lamon:   I stay in the house most of the time. But you know what? Skydiving. Skydiving was definitely the most adventurous thing that I’ve ever done. I’m 40 now, and for 39 years, I had said – not 39 years, but for practically my whole life. I was like, “Oh, I would never go skydiving. That’s something I would -” Am I muted?

Women:   No.

Lamon:   Yeah, I would never ever go skydiving, but I did it. And it was out of this world. I wouldn’t do it again, because I got a lot of seasickness from actually coming down, and the guy who was in charge skydiving, he would actually turn the parachute so we’re on some trail to get back to wherever we needed to go, but that really messed with my stomach. But it was very, very on the edge worthy.

Galen:   The guy’s like trying to make it fun for you, and you’re like, “Hey, please stop with the like back and forth.”

Lamon:   Yeah. Yeah, right before he started doing it he had he asked me he was like, “Do you like roller coasters?” And I was like, “Yeah.” He’s like, “All right,“ and next thing I know [unintelligible] to the side. I won’t do it again, but it was good one time.

Galen:   You know, Lamon, I’ve never actually done that.

Lamon:   Take Dramamine before, if you do.

Galen:   Okay. Oh, Linda, first of all, I want to thank you so much for the picture the other day. Linda printed this cool frame and sent me a framed picture at the top of Mammoth of the sign. It’s awesome. I love it. So, you rock. You always send in the most thoughtful things and the most ridiculous and hilarious letters, which I love. So, I’ll say, you know, I did this crazy kayak, like a 20-mile kayak in Hawaii, through like a private, like, waterfall. So, it was a kayak along the coast, and the current was crazy, so strenuous. It was like a full day; it was like a nine-hour kayak, and as I was living in Miami Beach at the time. One of my best friend’s was a member of a kayak club, so we did a bunch of kayaking. So, I was actually really good at it, but it was insanely hard, but so cool. Like part of it [was], the current would take you into this cove that would open up like the waterfalls coming down on your head, birds are swooping in, and you would go into this glowing giant like volcanic room, and suddenly you [would] be inside this mountain. It was the craziest thing I’ve ever seen. And you are kayaking with turtles and sharks and dolphins, and it was insane. Like National Geographic rated it as one of their top 100 adventures. And that was just so special. You’re going along and waterfalls are coming down. It was just like thousands of waterfalls everywhere on the Nepali coast where it at. It’s just I would highly recommend it, like in a boat, whatever. But if you are susceptible to seasickness, you can get seasick doing that for sure. I remember when we stopped for lunch, and I slept for an hour on a picnic table on a remote little island. It was brutal. So, that was pretty good. There’re so many.

Moderator:   Thank you, Linda. Great question. Next, we’re going to bring up Joanie Vaughn. Joanie, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, Lamon. Hi, Galen. I’m over in New Bedford, Massachusetts, a big little fishing town here. Biggest capital in the world for fishing, just in case –

Galen:   One of my best friends is from New Bedford.

Woman:   No way! Oh, my God.

Galen:   Yeah.

Woman:   It’s a quaint little town. This question is for both of you. It’s kind of a stupid question, but one I actually had helping in getting, because I had a hard time. Oh, my God, I want to ask you guys a million questions. But the one question is, well, in honor of Kurt Cobain’s birthday, so he’s a favorite of mine. Who’s your favorite band singer? One that you– if you just had nobody else to listen to, that you would want to listen to for the rest of your life.

Galen:   Oh, wow. Well, first of all, I got great taste. I love Kurt Cobain and Nirvana. And actually, just, I went to – Dave Grohl had this really cool thing. He’s the drummer for Nirvana and a bunch of other bands, but he had this really neat – he wrote a book about his journey as a musician and growing up, and I was –

Moderator:   Galen, we lost your sound.

Lamon:   I think, for me, it would be, and I thought a lot about this, and it’s hard to nail down one.

Galen:   It might be for me the Rolling Stones, just because they’re so iconic. They have so many great songs that I love.

Lamon:   Galen’s all over the place right now. I think he was getting the booger out of his nose. That was great!

Galen:   It looks clean to me.

Lamon:   We can’t see to make sure anyway, Galen.

Galen:   Am I back? What happened? Am I back?

Woman:   You are.

Galen:   Shut up, Lamon. [unintelligible] did that to you. Anyway, I’m gonna go Rolling Stones.

Woman:   Love it.

Lamon:   I don’t really know too many bands, but I would say Daughtry. That’s probably one of the few bands that I do listen to. Actually, I’ve seen him live, once. I became a fan years ago from American Idol. That’s when I used to watch American Idol all the time. It’s funny, because American Idol was like one of the few reality TV shows I would sit there and actually cry. So, American Idol. Chris Daughtry. I’m a big fan of them.

Lamon:   I love that. Both you guys, great answers. Thank you so much, and thanks –

Galen:   What about Hip Hop, Lamon?

Lamon:   One rapper, well, he’s passed. If I had no one else to listen to, Tupac. That’s number one.

Galen:   I knew you were going to say that.

Lamon:   Big Tupac fan, yeah.

Galen:   Yeah, he was great.

Moderator:   Thanks Joanie. Great question. Next we’re going to bring up Suzanne. Suzanne, tell us where you’re from and ask your question

Galen:   Hello, Suzanne.

(This is where I asked my question)

Woman:   That’s a good question.

Galen:   What do you think, Lamon?

Lamon:   That’s probably a tougher question for for you, I think, because you know, you’ve been there longer. You’ve been through more things than I have as portraying Eli, but something that –

Galen:   I would say, solve a case.


Lamon:   That’s wishful thinking. It’s not gonna ever happen.

Galen:   I know, but like, Lamon and I always had fun working together. We use to be like, “Man, can we just solve a damn case, though?”

Lamon:   Yeah, that’s a tough question. It’s a tough question. I feel like we do everything we – often we do stuff that we don’t want to do. Like, what was it? Zombies. And I’ll never forget the stuff that we did on the island with Christopher and Sal, where Chris had caught that Jungle Fever. Who asked for that? But to answer your question, I mean, something that I haven’t done, I don’t know. I would just say something that would bring in a family member from Eli’s past, just diving into, you know, more of his history. And as far as like pinpointing something in particular, I don’t know, hell, everyone comes back from the dead. So, maybe his dad can come back from the dead. I think that would be beneficial.

Moderator:   Thank you so much, Suzanne. So glad to have you here with us tonight. Next, we’re going to bring up Amber Savage. Amber, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hey, guys, I’m from Louisiana. So, unfortunately, I was pulling for Joe Barrow. I’m sorry, Joe. Anyway, I’m from Louisiana, and my question is for both of y’all. Okay, TV show or movie, either one, which is your guilty pleasure, the one that you don’t want anybody to know that you really like?

Galen:   I’m sorry, I lost audio.

Woman:   I said, which one, TV show or movie, is your guilty pleasure? The one you don’t want anyone to know that you really like. This is for both of y’all.

Lamon:   I would say, for me – I mean, if I didn’t want anybody to know you’re about to know now, but I really love the first season of Love is Blind.

Woman:   Oh, my God.

Lamon:   It’s a reality [show]. Somebody else must know about that. I heard, “Oh, my god.”

Woman:   I’m just watching the second season.

Woman:   Oh, my god, love it.

Lamon:   Yeah. I’ve got to watch the second season, but I really love the first season. I actually have searched up some of the people on Instagram to see if they’re still together from the first season. So, Love is Blind. It’s a really good reality show. And for years, I’ve kind of ventured off from reality TV, but that would definitely suck me back in.

Galen:   Oh, you’re doing deep dives on [unintelligible]. Oh my god, I love it.

Lamon:   And I think this was during the time where COVID just hit, so it was like one of those things where, you know, you’ve watched all the Netflix, so I think that was one of the things I got hooked on during that time.

Galen:   That’s amazing. Is it good?

Lamon:   It is really good. It’s really good. Dude, don’t– don’t start it though. Don’t start it.

Galen:   Okay.

Lamon:   You’re gonna get hooked.

Galen:   Now I have to answer the question. I honestly– I don’t really like – I don’t think I have, like, that show. I did watch this show last night though that’s crazy, so I’ll sort of reframe the question, because I don’t really know that I have anything, but Tinder Swindler?

Lamon:   Oh, I saw that.

Galen:   Dude, how crazy is that guy? What was he doing? What’s the point?

Lamon:   Yeah, for you guys. For any of you that don’t know what that show’s about, it’s about this guy who, on Tinder and dating sites, would swindle people, would swindle women, out of their money. He presents himself as like this, not a celebrity, but somebody who has lots and lots and lots of money. And then he gets women to actually give him money when he gets in trouble and [unintelligible].

Galen:   Yeah, don’t give it away. There’s some like crazy plot. I mean, it’s insane, the levels with which the guy is going and he’s spending money to get them to think that he has money. He’s [got] like private jets, all this nonsense, but he’s spending like the last girl’s money. It’s crazy, like, wow. Yeah, seems like a lot of work.

Moderator:   Thanks, Amber. Great question. Next, we’re going to bring up Nadia Potenza. Nadia, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, Galen Hi, Lamon. I’m from Boston, Massachusetts, and tonight, I’m drinking coffee. So, my question for both of you is, what is your greatest strengths as an actor?

Galen:   That’s a good question. Really good question.

Lamon:   I would say just the – You know what? I actually, like bringing in a level of comedy to, uh, to my scenes whenever possible. So, I would say –

Galen:   You do that on purpose?


Lamon:   Sometimes. So, yeah, I would say just the ability to be able to bring light and humor into my scenes.

Galen:   I would agree with that. We always have fun working together, dude. Oh, man. [unintelligible] I think too, your work’s really honest. You know what I mean? Like, you never seem like you’re pushing, you know what I’m saying? I don’t know. You just always find a moment. It seems very genuine, I would say for you, but that’s pretty good. I think, for me, like, I haven’t had any really of these emotional scenes, but one that’s like really – There’s like hard emotional scenes, I feel like, because we’re lucky enough to work with this character for a long time and other characters. I feel like I can believe in the circumstances pretty easily, as absurd as sometimes they might be, and not judge it too much, if that makes sense. Sometimes you’re like, “Oh my god, this is so ridiculous.” You’re like, “All right, whatever. Here we go.”

Moderator:   Thank you, Nadia.

Galen:   I have an ability to make my co stars laugh.

Lamon:   Oh my gosh, that’s true. That is the truth.

Moderator:   Thanks, Nadia.

Woman:   Thank you. Nice to meet you.

Moderator:   Next, we’re gonna bring up Raylene. Raylene, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, Galen. Hi, Lamon. Just look for the staircase.

Galen:   Yep.

Lamon:   Can’t miss it.

Galen:   There it is.

Woman:   Nice to spend Sunday with you both So, first of all, Lamon, I wanted to compliment you on your excellent Wi Fi connectivity.

Lamon:   Thank you. I’m in the house now.

Woman:   It’s very good. You’re very sharp and clear picture. So, it’s nice to see.

Lamon:   Thank you.

Woman:   And I’m sorry, Galen. I can’t say the same about you tonight.

Galen:   Is it not clear? But at least [I] was on time.


Woman:   So, there are so many things I wanted to ask both of you, but since Lamon brought up American Idol, and back in the early days, I used to love American Idol too. So, Daughtry didn’t win. Daughtry did not win, so who was your favorite winner of all the seasons that you watched? Who’s your favorite?

Lamon:   Most of the time my favorite got second, like Jennifer Hudson. I think she got second.

Woman:   No, she got six.

Lamon:   Oh, she got six. Oh, God. I think that was the season where the heavy set black guy had one, and I didn’t really like him too much.

Woman:   No, no, that wasn’t the right season.

Lamon:   Wait, Kelly Clarkson. I think Kelly Clarkson. I really liked her. I think she was a winner, if I’m not– if I’m not mistaken.


Woman:   First winner. Yeah.

Lamon:   Oh, she was the first… okay. Yeah, yeah, yes. So Kelly Clarkson for sure. And she doesn’t really do so much singing, to my knowledge. Now she’s into talk shows and things like that. Funny how life is gonna turn out.

Woman:   [unintelligible] early on.

Lamon:   Oh, yeah, The Voice is really good too. Yeah, definitely. But yeah, Kelly Clarkson.

Woman:   Do you have an answer there for that, Galen? And did you watch it all?

Galen:   All right, I was having a car situation. This is like my most embarrassing moment.

Lamon:   He’s breaking down right now.

Galen:   I tell you guys this because I have my car on. Not on. I had like the speaker going, and my battery died, and now I’m like blocking the guy who can’t even get out with this truck. So, anyway, good times. What was the question?


Woman:   American Idol singer.

Woman:   Yeah, do you watch American Idol at all?

Galen:   Yeah, you know. Oh, so my favorite singer?

Woman:   Yeah, or winner. I asked him on who his favorite winner was, because Chris Daughtry did not win.

Galen:   Oh, yeah. I like that guy. Who was second last year?

Woman:   I have no clue.

Lamon:   He’s winging this right now, guys.

Galen:   My son was like, super into it, so I would like watch it with them, and I just remember that guy that he thought was gonna win didn’t win, but I can’t remember his name. And I want to say–

Woman:   He was like alternative. He was an alternative artist.

Galen:   Yeah. Thank you.

Woman:   I can’t think of his name.

Galen:   Yeah, but, um, man, those people can sing, I’ll tell you. It’s incredible to be able to do that under that pressure. I don’t know. It’s crazy.

Moderator:   Thanks, Raylene.

Woman:   Thanks, guys.

Lamon:   Thank you, Raylene.

Galen:   Thanks.

Moderator:   Next we’re gonna bring up Thane. Thane is joining joining us from New Zealand and Thane uses text to voice to ask his question. Go ahead. Welcome, Thane.

Thane:   Well, someone I do work for is on the call. I probably shouldn’t do my crazy questions. I am just joking. She already knows I am a complete lunatic. So, guys, soap male characters are usually very stupid. So, I was wondering how you reconcile playing a detective while your character occasionally acts really dumb, for example, in relationships, etc.

Lamon:   That’s definitely a question for Galen.

Galen:   You know, the thing is, Thane, I think you said sometimes dumb; it’s really pretty much all the time. So, yeah, I mean, I think, actually, storyline-wise, like [we’re] moving through a storyline like that right now. I’m not sure exactly how far how much has transpired but I do just remember in this story being like, “Wow, I think I would have figured it out,” or had a greater Inkling. But I don’t know. I think there’s something in the water. We serve it at the at the cop shop there. They put in the coffee, I guess, because, you know, we’re idiots, for lack of a better word. You know, like Peter Sellers, like Pink Panther? Like he wasn’t always the most astute, but he found his way, and I feel like sometimes we do that.

Woman:   Lamon?

Lamon:   Yeah, you know what? It’s, uh, gosh, you know, oftentimes, you fans figure out whatever the crime is two weeks before our characters do, but yeah. I mean, it’s something that the writers have given us, and even though we’re like, “Oh, my god, this is so dumb; like the murderer is walking right next to us with a knife hanging out of their back pocket with blood dripping.” Stuff is right in our face, but we just have to, play as dumb as possible. I mean, there’ve been many times where I’ll go to producers and be like, “This doesn’t make sense. I mean, any idiot would know that, what [it is]; this plays out like this.” And they’re like, ‘Oh, this is the story.” We’ve got to make the best of it. So, our job is to be an idiot, not see it. We just do that.

Woman:   Thank you, Thane. Next, we’re going to bring up Amy Pfeffer. Amy, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, guys. Hi, Galen. We talked earlier.

Galen:   Hey, Amy.

Woman:   Hi. Lamon. You know, I’m from the San Mateo area, and I wanted to ask you, did you ever hang out at Tanforan Mall, back in the day?

Lamon:   I used to go to Tanforan Mall. Yes, for sure.

Woman:   They’re tearing it down.

Lamon:   Oh, really?

Woman:   Yeah. They’re tearing it down. We think Jeff Bezos bought it.

Lamon:   What?

Woman:   Yeah, they’re tearing it down. I wanted to tell you.

Lamon:   My cousin – Wait, have they already shut it down, right now?

Woman:   No, they’re shutting it down. They’re shutting it down probably in the next couple months.

Lamon:   Oh, my cousin, she works at the Foot Action over there. Wow. I didn’t know that. Okay.

Woman:   A big tech giant bought it, and we think it’s Jeff Bezos.

Lamon:   I wonder what they’re planning to do with that?

Woman:   I don’t know. I don’t know.

Galen:   Like, your cousin’s gonna be working at the Amazon distribution center, Lamon.

Lamon:   She’s pretty smart. She might be able to take your job on the force.

Galen:   Really, being smart is not a prerequisite for my job.

Woman:   I thought it was useless tidbit of information that I thought you might like to know.

Lamon:   Oh, yeah. Thank you for that. Appreciate it.

Moderator:   Thanks, Amy. Next, we are going to bring up Tina Moore. Tina, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Woman:   Hi, guys. My name is Tina. And I’m from Asheville, North Carolina.

Galen:   Hey, yo, what’s going on?

Woman:   Oh, not much. How are you?

Galen:   Tina the Terror.

Woman:   Well, first of all, Lamon, I want to say I absolutely love your dog.

Lamon:   Oh, thank you.

Woman:   The cutest thing. She’s adorable. I’m serious. If you ever rent her out for play dates, let me know. So, cute.

Lamon:   Thank you.

Woman:   I love your guys’ relationship.

Lamon:   Me and my dog?

Woman:   No. Well, that, too, but you and Galen, because you just bust each other, and it’s so fun.

Lamon:   Yeah, Galen’s my dog, too.

Woman:   Catch and sit and roll over and all that. So, my question is what do you think is the quirkiest part about your characters? Do you kind of build them, too? Like with Galen, I feel like Rafe has this thing for stuffed animals, like you’ve always had; like with Johnny it was penguins. Do you remember his stuffed penguins?

Galen:   Oh, yeah.

Woman:   And then you’ve never had any scenes with him on those. That’s kind of funny.

Galen:   What?

Woman:   Have you ever, I mean, have you ever had scenes with him, since he’s been back?

Galen:   Who, Lamon?

Woman:   No, Johnny.

Galen:   Oh. No, I have. A couple, not many.

Woman:   Okay, because I don’t think we’ve seen him any of them.

Galen:   Oh right. Well, then, you’ll see them coming up, I guess.

Woman:   Okay. So, I guess my question is –

Galen:   Is he possessed by the devil right now?

Woman:   Yes. So, I guess my question is, do you try to bring out the funny in your character, like the quirky stuff?

Galen:   Do I?

Woman:   Yes. Because I think you’re both funny.

Galen:   Thanks. I mean, I will say like a lot of my scenes involve like very high stakes things, murders and you know, pursuits, so you kind of have to temper it sometimes. Like, as much as I would like to play more times, sometimes, but yeah, I love to do that. I mean, I think we do that often in real life as well, and then people sort of lose sight of it in the acting world at times. And it gives like, fun color. So, it’s definitely a – what’s the word I’m looking for? Like, I think about it, when I can mix it in, and I think that the writers actually do a good job of finding moments for me, knowing sort of like my voice and what I want to do, the character’s voice, and they are actually writing stuff in for me, which is great.

Woman:   Yeah, I think they do, too, and I love the sense of humor that Days has. It’s different than any other show right now.

Galen:   That’s great.

Woman:   Yeah. It’s not like Passions. It’s strange, but it’s funny, and it is a lot of fun to watch. It’s not so serious.

Galen:   Yeah, it can be tongue-in-cheek a little bit and make fun of itself. Yeah, I love that, actually. It’s nice color, I think. Thank you for appreciating that.

Woman:   That’s great, thank you.

Galen:   Look how handsome Lamon is, look at that dude.

Lamon:   But yeah, just tagging on what Galen said. Yeah, I mean, being with a soap, everything is a lot of times drama, drama, drama, like you said, high stakes. And often, the plots or whatever it may be, there isn’t– really isn’t laughing – there’s no laughing matters about it. So, I think whenever we can we try to add some humor in, and even if that’s just having reactions to some of the outlandish things that that are going on.

Woman:   Yes. Looks Yeah.

Lamon:   Yeah, and oftentimes, you may not get to see those, because we’re not the ones speaking. So, it really is a gem when they do actually get a look from someone who’s actually a bystander in the whole scene kind of taking the [unintelligible], like, “What the hell is going on?” But yeah, whenever we can we try to implement that stuff, but it’s not always the easiest thing to do, because what’s going on in the story is such high stakes.

Woman:   Okay, thank you.

Galen:   You’re welcome, Tina.

Moderator:   Next we’re going to bring up Vito, tell us where you’re from and ask your question.

Man:  Hello, Lamon. Hi, Galen. I’m Vito. I do have a question for Galen. I saw on your IMdB page that your parents were hippies.

Galen:   Uh-huh.

Man:  [Unintelligible] lifestyle

Galen:   Say again?

Man:  According to this, they interviewed you, and you said, living the hippie lifestyle was art. You lived on macaroni and cheese and Top Ramen.

Galen:   Yeah, that’s pretty accurate. I would say if there’s one thing that as a parent I love to have for my kids is consistency, and my parents did not offer that in terms of the lifestyle, especially when my parents split up. So, I was just with my mom, who was this crazy artist. There was just a lot going on. She was a wild woman. Then when the rent check would come first of the month, he’d cook for like a week and then who knew? It was just a little sketchy. So, that was the the hard part about being a kid and trying to have also a sense of normalcy, when your mom’s this wild artists and the kids are like – I mean, my car was completely painted. You don’t want to ride in that when you’re a kid. It was called the Duck Mobile, and our joke was my sister and I, because we would duck down, so no one would see us. And that lasted for like a year. I was like, “Nobody knows I’m in the Duck Mobile.” And then one kid found out, and that was it. Yeah. So, that was challenging, but looking back on it, it was I think it was pretty fun. I mean, there weren’t a lot of rules. We could kind of do whatever we wanted, and I think it helped obviously shape me into the person I am today. You know, I’m pretty thick-skinned and don’t take things too seriously most of the time. So, yeah.

Man:  Cool. Thank you.

Lamon:   Apparently I drive a duck mobile myself, and I thought I have a pretty nice car. Whenever I pick up my kids they hop in fast, and they duck, because I play my music loud. They don’t want their friends to see them.

Moderator:   Thanks, Vito.

Galen:   You’re blaring that Daughtry.

Moderator:   Okay, I’m going to bring three people back up who asked their questions before Lamon came on. Galen, you’re more than welcome to stay with us if you want to. Okay, I’m going to bring Betty Jean back up. She has a question for Lamon.

Woman:   Hi, Lamon. Now that you guys are aging the babies, how’s it working with real babies on the set, instead of the dolls?

Lamon:   It’s actually– it’s fun. It helps us as actors to actually have a living breathing baby, but there are times where you’ll have one of the twins – you are dealing with now two babies on set – oftentimes one of them won’t be in the mood. So, we have to deal with that, but overall, it’s a blessing that we don’t have to hold dolls and sit there and pass these crazy, scary-looking dolls. [unintelligible] things like that.

Woman:   But are you working with just two babies? Or is it two sets of twins?

Lamon:   It’s two sets of twins, four for each. And it’s funny, because the Carver babies.. Carver is the boy, but they’re played by girls. Jules, of course, is the girl, but the girls are actually boys.

Galen:   Oh, my god. That’s so weird.

Lamon:   So, it’s crazy, but yeah, to answer your question, it’s more fun to do.

Galen:   I just want to interject, because those babies they have, not the real ones, those babies are crazy-looking.

Lamon:   The dolls?

Galen:   Yeah, with those like popping out of your cupboard or something.

Moderator:   Thanks, Betty Jane. Next, we’re going to bring back up Ina. Ina has a question for Lamon.

Woman:   Hi, Lamon, nice to meet you.

Lamon:   Nice to meet you.

Woman:   My question is, what’s your favorite car?

Lamon:   My favorite car, well it’s definitely gonna be a car I don’t have. Let’s see. Okay, right now, my favorite car, it’s not even out yet. It’s a new Hummer that I have my eye on. It won’t be out until 2024, but it’s an– it’s a– an electric Hummer. If you ever want to sit there and Google– but all-electric Hummer 2024, And you can actually take the top off of that. So yeah, 2024 Hummer.

Galen:   Those things look sweet.

Lamon:   Yeah.

Woman:   Thank you, Ina. And we’re going to bring back up Michelle Leibowitz. Michelle has a question for Lamon.

Woman:   Hi, Lamon. Very nice to meet you.

Lamon:   Nice to meet you, Michelle.

Woman:   I was asking, I know you and Galen are both blooper kings. What’s your most memorable blooper that you’ve had on set?

Lamon:   Well, I’ll say this. The one that I’ve watched the most is probably the blooper with myself, Thou, Galen and – his name is – help me out Galen. I think his dad stole stole a baby. Remember, Galen, we were in a hotel room and he was on the other side of the bed?

Moderator:   Brock Kelly?

Lamon:   Yeah, Brock Kelly. That one, oh my god, we were dying. I actually have it on my Instagram page that blooper where you came into the door, and you said something like “Po po” or something like that. And then it just started, everybody was giggling, and we did not stop laughing. I remember Lucy. She was like, “All right guys, you guys have to settle down,” or something like that. You were like, “No, we need to fire up,” and they actually didn’t even let us finish rehearsing, because we were horsing around too much, or she was like, “We’re gonna go straight to tape. You guys got to settle down.” We could not stop laughing. That one I probably watched the most. That was hilarious.

Galen:   I remember that. They were talking about it earlier, actually, because they were asking about exactly that. And I was like, “We don’t have time for practical jokes,” but I remember that, because I had to bang on it like, “Police!” And I was like, “It’s the po po.” Then you guys just lost it. I don’t know, [there were] some other whole crazy absurdities going on. That was funny.

Lamon:   Often times we’re working with stuff that’s so crazy that any little thing that happens, sometimes it doesn’t even have to be funny, but just anything that happens is just out of the ordinary. One person starts laughing, and next thing you know, everybody has the giggles, and it’s over. It’s over after that.

Galen:   It’s a wrap.

Lamon:   Yeah.

Galen:   Why is that? It’s like, these things become so funny that otherwise wouldn’t really seemingly be funny at all. But I think, because you’re under the pressure of like, “Oh, we got to get this out.” And you’re like, it’s so ridiculous that you’re just, I don’t know, it just becomes hilarious. I don’t know what it is, but then you get the giggles, and you just can’t stop.

Lamon:   There’s something about laughing when you’re not supposed to laugh that just takes it to a whole new height, for sure.

Galen:   The other day, I was telling them like, we have the scenes, Billy’s coming in, I’ll fire it up, and and then he’s like, “Dude, don’t do that to me.” I’m like, “Don’t do what? I didn’t do anything.” He like, “You got that twinkle in your eye.” And I was like, “I’m not doing anything.” Then of course I started doing something, and then I couldn’t stop. And then I’d slap myself, but then it really hurt, and I had a hand mark on my face. I hit myself so hard, I was like, “Oh, my god, it’s not going well.”

Woman:   Well, this brings our time to a close. So, on behalf I know on behalf of Penny and Star Image Entertainment, we want to thank all of you for coming tonight. We want to especially thank Lamon and Galen for taking time out of their busy schedules to be here. Clearly it was no small effort tonight for both of them. I hope you can get home and you don’t have to call [unintelligible] to come rescue you.

Galen:   I have to get a jump. My favorite car right now? The one that starts.

Woman:   Oh, and and Galen don’t forget your bike.

Woman:   So, we always do a toast before we end the night and take some group shots. So, if everybody wants to raise their glass, we want to we want to toast Galen and Lamon, the Salem PD force. Thank you for for joining us, for all you do. Thank you Penny. And thank you to all the fans. It’s all of you that make all of this special. So cheers.


Lamon:   Yeah, thank you.


Galen:   Thanks everyone for coming. Thank you Lamon. Happy Sunday.

Lamon:   Happy Sunday.

Woman:   Go Rams, Galen.

Lani: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, eli, oh, my god. Oh, my god, baby. Eli, can you hear me? Oh, my god. Oh, my god, baby, oh, my god. I prayed and I prayed for you. I prayed and… and you came back to me. Oh, my god, baby. You are here, you are here. Oh, my god.

Ciara: Get out my way, allie.

Allie: Ciara, you’re not thinking straight. Where would you even go?

Ciara: To the docks. I’ll go find those cops and make them take me to ben.


Allie: What’s wrong? What happened?

Ciara: My water just broke.

Allie: Really?

Ciara: Oh, my god. Oh, damn it, damn it.

Allie: No, no, no, don’t say that, don’t say that.

Ciara: No, allie. Allie, I need ben. I can’t do this without ben.

Allie: Yes, you can.

Ciara: No, I can’T.

Allie: Yes, you can, and you will, okay? But you need to calm down for your baby’s sake. I know you want ben, ciara, but you need to think of your baby. Think about how long you’ve waited.

Demon allie: How long I’ve waited.

Allie: Your baby will be born today, and it’s going to be the happiest day of your life.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Eli: Hey.

Lani: Oh, no, no, shh. Baby, shh, okay.

Eli: Hey.

Lani: Hey, baby. You’re on a ventilator, okay? Don’t talk. Let me get a doctor, okay? I love you so much. I love you.

Paulina: Life and death, huh?

Tr: You know, I’m suddenly aware that we’re in the middle of a busy hospital. You think we can maybe go someplace that’s a little more private? Like my room?

Paulina: Um, no, no, I think we better go back to my place, and then you can ask the question and then leave.

Tr: Whatever you say.

Paulina: That’s right, and don’t you forget it.

Lani: Oh, oh, my god. Oh, my god, my eli is back. Oh, my god, my eli is back. Paulina. Dr. Johnson, eli, he woke up. He’s up, he’s up.

Johnny: Grandma, I don’t think trying to make a connection with allie is really gonna work right now, not the way things are.

Susan: Why not?

Johnny: Oh, I don’t know because she’s the devil.

Susan: No, she’s possessed by the devil, and that’s why I know you can reach her. Oh, honey, you know the real allie better than anyone else in the world. And you need to use your love. You need to use your love to reach out and let her know that, you know, not just for ciara, but for your sister. ‘Cause she’s lost right now, sweetheart, and you need to find her.

Ciara: Okay, allie, I need you to help me get down to the docks. I need to go back to the mainland, I need to be in the hospital with ben telling me how to breathe.

Allie: Okay, sweetheart, ben is dead.

Ciara: No, he’s not, allie. No, he’s not. I told you I can feel him. I need ben, I miss him, I want him. I need ben.

Allie: Okay, okay, ciara, ciara, I know you don’t wanna have your baby here, but the fact is, you do not have a choice in the matter. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Johnny: You know I would do anything for allie, but I don’t know what to do. I can’t make that thing happen. It just happens.

Susan: But yes you can. Yes, you can, johnny. I’m not saying it’s gonna be easy, but you need to amplify that connection that you have, that bond that you have, and then that maybe we can reach out to her, sweetheart. All right, do you have a phone, a picture of her–

Johnny: The devil has my phone, the devil has my phone.

Ben: Well, maybe ciara has one somewhere.

Susan: Wait, you know what? You know what, you texted me one last year. I have it right here. Okay, all right. Let see where it is, okay. No, no, no. Okay, there it is, I found it. Okay, now, I want you, johnny, to just concentrate on that photo, all right? Get that it your head, sweetheart. Concentrate on that photo, and i want you to remember what was happening, what you both were saying, okay? Like it was happening right now, right in this room, and I want you to see what she sees.

>>Allie: Easy now, easy now.

Ciara: Allie, you have to go down to the docks, and you need to tell the cops to phone for a doctor.

Allie: There’s no time.

Ciara: I can’t do this alone.

Allie: You’re not alone. I’m here, and I’ll help you.

Ciara: I want ben, allie. I need ben to do this with me.

Allie: Sorry, girlfriend, but I’m all you’ve got, okay? But I promise you and your baby are in good hands.

Ciara: Oh, god.

Abe: I’m so sorry to hear about ciara. Has there been any word?

Julie: No, shawn-douglas, the whole salem pd is searching everywhere for her. The devil is still after her baby, and now he’s possessed allie.

Abe: I’m keeping them in my prayers.

Julie: Thank you, thank you so much. Have a seat.

Abe: Thank you. And what about the twins, were they any trouble?

Julie: They’re never any trouble, no, no. We got a little behind in the schedule, so they’re napping now, but I can wake them up if you’re in a hurry.

Abe: No, I’m not in a hurry. Don’t wake them up.

Julie: Okay, would you like some tea, or would you like something stronger?

Abe: I think tea would be great, thank you very much.

Julie: Fine. How are things at the hospital?

Abe: Lani’s hanging in there.

Julie: How about eli?

Abe: I’m sorry, julie. There’s no change.

Tripp: So how you feeling, eli?

Eli: Why am i in the hospital?

[Soft music]

Lani: The thing is, honey, you’ve been in a coma.

Eli: For how long?

Lani: Since march.

Eli: What is it now?

Lani: May.

Eli: Oh, my god. Baby, I’m so sorry.

Lani: No, no, hey, no, eli, don’T. Don’t you worry about me. You were the one who…

Eli: What, what happened?

Lani: You were shot. You don’t remember that?

Eli: No, nothing.

Tripp: No, no, don’t be alarmed by that; that’s completely normal.

Eli: Who shot me?

Lani: Baby, let’s get into that later.

Tripp: Yes, yes, later. I wanna give you a thorough exam first.

Tr: Paulina, I want you to know how much these past few months have meant to me. Getting to know my daughter and my grandchildren has been a true blessing.

Paulina: I am glad to hear that.

Tr: And on top of all that, you were generous enough to let me back into your life. After the way I treated you, I didn’t deserve another chance, but I am so grateful that you gave me one anyway because spending this time together, it’s made me realize that, paulina… you are the love of my life.

And I was hoping that you might do me the honor of becoming my wife. Lemons.

Abe: Well, things did get a little tense between tr and I.

Julie: Hmm.

Abe: He found out that paulina and I recently, well, um, we kissed.

Julie: Wow. A “well, uh” kiss. So does that mean pistols at dawn for you and tr?

Abe: No, no, no, no. Actually paulina kissed me. I pushed her away.

Julie: Oh, of course you did. She’s such a hussy.

Abe: I really love confiding in you, julie.

Julie: Okay, I’ll behave. Tell me, what did tr actually say?

Abe: He told me off for hurting paulina’s feelings.

Julie: He told you off?

Abe: Mm-hmm.

Julie: After everything he has done to her? The nerve of him. I really don’t understand why she has let him back into her life.

Abe: Well, I think things have gone beyond that now. I think there’s something romantic between them.

Julie: Oh, give me a break.

Abe: It just seems like a really bad idea.

Julie: Bad idea, it’s an awful idea–it’s stupid, a stupid idea!

Abe: You disapprove?

Julie: I do, and you do as well, and it’s about time, abraham, that you did something about this.

Abe: And what’s that supposed mean?

Julie: Well, I’m not a fool. Plain as the nose on your face, you still love her. So it’s time you got over yourself, abraham, and won her back.

Paulina: You want to marry me?

Tr: That’s right.

Paulina: Have you lost your damn mind?

Tr: I know this may seem sudden.

Paulina: Sudden? I’ve spent about three decades not knowing or caring where you are, and then you come here on business. Then you happen to bump into me, and the next thing I know it’s, “let’s tie the knot that binds.” To say that it’s too fast, that would be a massive understatement.

Tr: So how about this? Let me take you away for a romantic weekend. Give me a chance to sweep you off your feet.

Paulina: Well, that sounds a lot less radical, but…

Tr: Oh, come on, come on, come on, please. We’re talking about one weekend. What’s the harm in that?

Tripp: Everything seems good.

Lani: I cannot wait to tell everyone, but I don’t wanna leave your side.

Tripp: I can make those calls for you.

Lani: You don’t mind?

Tripp: No, not at all. We have the numbers on file. Take it easy, okay? I’ll be back soon.

Lani: Thank you. You really okay?

Eli: I’m okay.

Lani: Yeah.

Eli: Let’s talk about you. How are you? How are the kids?

Lani: We’re fine, we’re fine. I mean, I wasn’T. I was a mess, but I had so much help. Paulina, julie, my dad, they were all so wonderful with helping with the kids and keeping everything normal for them, and even tr, he pitched in.

Eli: You let tr near our kids, did you?

Lani: Eli, like you said, you missed a lot.

Allie: Keep breathing, right? Keep breathing, ciara.

Ciara: Oh, my god, allie. Oh, that was a bad one.

Allie: Is it over?

Ciara: I don’t know. I think so.

Allie: What are you doing?

Ciara: I have a picture of ben in here somewhere. If he can’t be here, then I want him here somehow.

[Tense music]

Johnny: I can’T. My head is killing me.

Susan: Oh, sweetie, sweetie.

>>Ben: Johnny, please, this is our only chance.

Johnny: I just don’t think it’s gonna work.

Ben: Ciara is alone with her right now. She is alone with the devil, who is after my baby. What if that baby comes early, johnny? Please, johnny.

Susan: I’m gonna do this with you, all right? Now hold my hand, and I want to you to close your eyes right now. And I want you to think, think of a picture of allie in your head, in your heart right now. Just close your eyes, sweetheart. And I want you–what I want you to think about and I want you to get allie to think about, is I want you to get her to think about her son, and how much she loves him, and how much ben and ciara are gonna love their baby. Johnny, I want you to see the first time allie was holding that baby of hers. You see it?

>>Johnny: Allie, allie. Hey, allie, I want you to think about henry. He needs you. You gotta get back to him. I see her. I can see ciara.

From prom dresses

Eli: So what else did I miss? You said the kids are fine, right? Carver, jules they’re okay, right?

Lani: Yes, baby, the kids are fine. My dad is on his way to your grandmother’s to pick them up right now.

>>Eli: Hopefully, you’re not talking about tr; I don’t want that man near our kids.

Lani: Hey, hey, carver and jules were never left alone with tr. But, babe, he did help me with all of this. Paulina and I, we both had our reservations about tr, especially paulina, but even she’s beginning to think that he’s a changed man.

Eli: Hm, I guess I did miss a lot. Last thing I remember is I had the isa check him out.

Lani: Yeah, that’s right.

Eli: There was something else. I called the isa, and I spoke to somebody, somebody that knew him.

Lani: His ex-girlfriend, billie tracked her down.

Eli: Oh, wait. Yeah, that’s right. She came to the station. She wanted to see me in per–what was her name?

Lani: Beth.

Eli: Yeah, beth, the actress.

Lani: Yeah, she lived in la with tr, and she wanted you to know that he was sober the entire time they were together, and he never laid a hand on her. Do you remember that?

Eli: No, I don’T. You sure that’s what she said?

Paulina: I’m telling you, ray, it just doesn’t feel right leaving lani, with eli still in the hospital.

Tr: It looks like he’s gonna be there a while, and I don’t think he’d want you to put your life on hold till he gets out. We’re talking about a couple of days. We don’t have to go far, and we can come right back if anything happens. Paulina, you’ve been running yourself ragged, working, helping lani. Just think of this as some well-earned r and R. You can come back refreshed and ready to help lani again.

Paulina: Well, I have been stretched pretty thin lately, these days. Okay, why not?

Tr: [Laughs] You have no idea how happy you have made me.

Ben: How is ciara? Is she all right?

Ciara: [Gasping]

Johnny: She’s on the floor. Looks like she’s in pain.

Ben: Is she hurt?

Johnny: No, no, I think she’s in labor.

Ben: No, no, no, no, she’s not due for another couple weeks.

Johnny: I think the baby’s on its way.

Ben: Is allie with her?

Johnny: Yeah. Yeah, I think I’m seeing ciara through allie’s eyes.

Susan: Okay, johnny, just keep going, keep talking to her. Come on, come on. You can do this, sweetheart.

Allie: Okay, breathe, just breathe through the pain.

Ciara: Yeah, that’s easy for you to say.

Allie: Just trying to…

Ciara: Allie, is everything okay–is something wrong?

Johnny: Allie, look around the room. Show me where you are.

Allie: Sneaky little bastard.

Ciara: What did you just say?

Allie: Get out. I said get out of here.

Ciara: Allie, what did you just say?

Allie: Sorry, I was talking to the baby.

Susan: Johnny!

Ben: Johnny, what happened?

Johnny: The devil, he figured out what was happening.

Susan: Why, did he block you out?

Johnny: Yeah, it was like a black out or something.

Ben: Look at me. Did you see where they were?

Johnny: I couldn’t see that much, but it looked like they were in some kind of cabin.

Ben: My cabin in mammoth falls.

Johnny: I don’t know, I’ve never been there.

Ben: Well, the devil has. I need to get up there right now.

Susan: What…

[Tense music]

Allie: One more push, ciara, okay? I can see its head. One more big push, one more.

[Baby wailing]

Ciara: He’s here. Is he okay?

Allie: He’s perfect.

Ciara: Will you give me my baby, allie?

Allie: Just perfect.

Ciara: Let me see my baby. Allie, allie, let me have my baby. (Beep)

Abe: [Sighs] All right. Let’s say you’re right. Let’s say hypothetically that I do love paulina.

Julie: Of course I’m right.

Abe: That’s not the problem. The problem is I can’t trust her. She’s lied to me too many times.

Julie: That’s a valid concern; trust is very important, but at this point, what has she got left to lie about? I mean, unless she’s the mastermind behind the great british train robbery, you know everything now, unless of course, I get it.

Abe: Get what?

Julie: Well, I loathe tr personally, but he does have certain charms. He’s a smooth talker. He’s attractive enough. He’s sort of a hollywood player type. Perhaps at your age, you do not care to compete with the new kid in town.

Abe: You are an evil woman, evil.

Julie: Abraham, it’s okay to hang up your cleats, so to speak, to throw in the towel as it were, ’cause after all, everybody knows, love, that’s a young man’s game. More tea?

Paulina: Oh, where’s my phone? I need to call lani, let her know.

Tr: I’ll call her. You go pack.

Paulina: Well, I hope you’re not totally devastated about my turning down your proposal.

Tr: I’ll get by somehow. And get that money somehow. Lani?

Tripp: No, this is dr. Johnson. I’m actually to calling for her. Is her mom there?

Tr: Dr. Johnson, this is lani’s father. Is everything okay?

Tripp: Oh, mr. Coates. Yes, everything’s fine. In fact, I have good news. Eli just woke up.

Lani: What do you mean, am I sure? She told me herself.

Eli: Okay. So the day that I talked to her, that was the day I got shot? How did it happen?

Lani: Hey, we don’t have to do this right now.

Eli: No, no, baby, I wanna know. What happened?

Lani: Well, what we know is that you left beth at the station. She said that you told her you would be right back, but you didn’t say where you were going or why, and somehow you ended up at the park. The drug dealer was already there, and somehow he ended up shooting you.

Eli: Why?

Lani: We don’t know. Shawn and I, we were first on the scene. The drug dealer had already od’d, and his name was frank. There was a needle by his body, and your gun was in his hand, and I just… I just really thought that I was gonna lose you.

[Soft music]

Johnny: I’m gonna try again. I’ve gotta get to allie.

Susan: You will, sweetheart. You will. You can do this, honey, okay?

[Baby wailing]

Johnny: Ciara had the baby. Allie’s holding him.

Susan: Oh, sweet jesus, please help them. Oh, please.

Johnny: Allie, it’s me. Listen to me, you have to fight. Don’t let the devil hurt ciara or the baby.

Allie: I said, get out!

Ciara: Allie, what’s going on?

[Tense music]

Allie: Everything is fine. Or it will be soon.

Susan: Oh johnny, johnny.

Johnny: I don’t know what he just did, but I don’t think we’re gonna get back in.

Susan: Okay, all right, you tried, that’s all that counts. You tried, sweetheart.

Johnny: I did better than try. Grandma, allie heard me. She told me where they were. She was looking at a ferry ticket to smith island. They’re not at ben’s cabin. They’re at the horton cabin. Oh, my god. Grandma, ben went to the wrong cabin.

Ciara: Allie, allie, let me see him.

Allie: Welcome to the world, baby boy.

Ciara: Give me my baby. Allie, did you hear me? I said, give me my baby. Give me my baby!

Allie: No, ciara. This is my baby. This is the sound of nature breathing.

Julie: And may I say one more thing?

Abe: Can anything stop you?

Julie: No, of course not. When you were shot, and we were waiting outside surgery for you to come out of that experience, I was with paulina. She would’ve done anything on earth to keep you safe. She loves you, abraham. She loves you fiercely. Do you really want to let a woman who loves you like that slip away?

Abe: No, no. No, I don’t want to lose her.

Julie: Then tell her you want her back.

Abe: I will, I will.

Julie: Good. Well, go.

Abe: Oh, I’m here to pick up the kids.

Julie: The twins are fine. You go to paulina now.

>>Abe: All right, well, you definitely have told me it’s time for me to get over myself.

Julie: What are friends for?

Abe: Oh, thank you for the tea.

[Soft music]

Tr: Eli is awake?

Tripp: And we have every reason to believe he’ll make a complete recovery.

Tr: Has he said anything about what happened to him?

Tripp: No, no, he doesn’t seem to remember what happened before the shooting. That is normal with trauma like his.

Tr: I see.

Tripp: But it is possible that his memory will come back. We just have to wait and see.

Tr: Well, thank you for the good news. I’ll tell paulina right away. Damn.

Paulina: Did you speak to lani?

Tr: I just got off the phone with her, and she said, she thinks it’s a great idea for us to get away for a few days, and she wants you to have the time of your life.

Lani: Shawn tried to revive the dealer, but it was too late. So we had no way of knowing what exactly went down.

Eli: Do you have a picture of frank?

Lani: Yeah. There, that’s him.

Eli: He doesn’t look familiar.

Lani: And you don’t remember why you went to the park?

Eli: No. You’re under arrest.

[Tense music]

Lani: Eli, hey, what is it?

Eli: It’s starting to come back to me.

Susan: Ah, shoot. It went straight to voicemail.

Johnny: Yeah, I don’t think there’s any service up there.

[Phone line trilling]

[Phone beeps]

Susan: Oh, hey ben. It’s susan, all right. You went to the wrong cabin. It’s the horton cabin on smith island. That is the horton cabin. Oh, please god, let him get this message. Oh.

Ciara: Your baby? Allie, is this some kind of a sick joke? Just give me my baby.

Allie: Sorry, ciara, but I have other plans for him.

Ciara: What are you talking about? Allie, give me my son. Damn it, allie, do you hear me? Give him to me.

Demon allie: Sorry. I’m not allie. Honestly, I thought I was getting my floors cleaned.

Ciara: No, no.

Demon allie: Surprise.

Ciara: No, no, it can’t be. It can’t be. We thought you were in johnny.

Demon allie: In my business, you need to learn how to pivot. Taking on this particular corporeal identity was a spur of the moment kind of thing, but like everything I do, it was inspired. Like “call the satanic midwife.”

Ciara: Please, please don’t do this. Please don’t do this. He’s just an innocent little baby, please.

Demon allie: Not for long. See, no one can stop me now.

Allie: No, I won’t let you do this.

Lani: What do you remember?

Eli: I was struggling with the gun.

Lani: With frank?

Eli: Maybe. All I know is I’m keeping you away from my family.

Tr: You can’t keep me away from your wife and my grandchildren.

Eli: Watch me. You’re under arrest. Oh, my god.

Lani: What? What is it?

Tr: Ah!

Eli: Baby, it wasn’t frank who shot me. It was tr.

Tr: Paulina, let’s go.

Paulina: Ray, hold your horses. I haven’t even finished packing yet.

Tr: It’s just a weekend. You don’t need a lot of clothes where you’re going.

[Knock at door]

[Sighs] What now?

[Tense music]

Johnny: Rafe, it’s johnny. We figured out where allie took ciara. They’re at the horton cabin, and, rafe, ciara’s had her baby. You’ve gotta get there right away.

Ciara: Ben, oh, my god, ben.

Ben: Oh, my god, you’re okay. Baby, you’re okay, you’re okay. Thank god you’re okay. Oh, my god, oh, my god. I’m almost went to the wrong place and–never mind, never mind, never mind, never mind. Never mind. Where’s allie?

Ciara: Ben, she’s gone. And that wasn’t allie. Ben, that was the devil, and he took our baby. He took my baby.

TR: if it wasn’t for you, paulina. If you’re not with the twins, you’re here taking care of me, making sure I never have to leave his side.

Paulina: It is my honor to support my daughter and my son-in-law. And I am going to keep right on doing it, as long as you need me to. Oh.

TR: How are my two favorite girls?

Paulina: Mm, more flowers. You’re going to make all the other patients very jealous.

Lani: Thank you, tr. They’re lovely.

TR: How’s the patient? Any change?

Lani: Unfortunately, no. But I keep talking to him, telling him how we all cannot wait for him to come back. And, I don’t know, maybe it’s just wishful thinking, but I really feel like he’s listening this time.

Paulina: Oh, I don’t think it’s wishful thinking at all, darling. I think eli hears every word that you say to him and that he’s working very hard to get back to you and those beautiful children.

Tripp: So, what brings you in today, ms. Howard?

[Tense music]

[Elevator dings]

Chanel: How-how are you feeling?

Johnny: Much better. Yeah, as you could see, last night, I was in pretty rough shape, but I’m all rehydrated and good to go.

Chanel: G, are you sure? You’ve been through a lot.

Johnny: Ah, it wasn’t that bad. I mean, sure, I was possessed by the devil, held prisoner in a crypt, almost strangled to death by my dead uncle. But, hey, everyone’s got their problems, right?

Chanel: Yeah, way to put things in perspective.

Johnny: You know, to be honest, all that did do a pretty good number on me, but I’m fine now.

Chanel: And I assume you’re headed home to rest?

Johnny: No way. I need to find allie.

Demon allie: Now that I’ve convinced you that your beloved husband is dead and you’re in mortal danger from the maniac who killed him, you can stay here with me, where you’ll be safe. I’ll keep a close eye on you until you give birth, and then that baby will finally be mine. That’s the plan, ciara. And nobody and nothing is going to stop me.

Susan: Oh, ben, I got your message and I came as soon as I could!

Ben: Susan, I am freaking out. Nobody has seen or heard from ciara since yesterday.

Susan: Oh, what about allie?

Ben: Nobody’s seen or heard from her either.

Susan: Well, I mean, she’s possessed, so that’s hardly surprising.

Ben: Susan, I need to find ciara right now. She could give birth at any time, and the devil is after our baby.

Susan: Okay. You know what, ben? I know how scared you must be after tangling with the devil up close and personal, but you know what? You and ciara, you have a special love. And you know what? Love will always win over evil every time.

Ben: [Sighs] I really hope you’re right. And I really hope that we can use your powers to help me connect with her again, just like you did before. Please.

Susan: Oh, okay, okay. All right, you know the drill. You just go get you something of hers and then, we’ll get cracking, huh? I’m gonna have you two lovebirds chirping in no time! Whoo!

[Sighs] Yeah.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ben: I gave this to ciara as an anniversary gift.

Susan: It’s a little small, isn’t it?

Ben: It’s symbolic. The bike is what brought us together.

Susan: You know, that is real sweet, ben. That’s real sweet. All right, we’re gonna do this like we did before. Nice and easy, all right?

Ben: [Sighs]

Susan: Okay.

[Inhales deeply] Ahh.

[Inhales deeply] Ooh. Ciara alice brady weston! Oh, honey, I need to feel your presence, sweetheart!

Ben: Anything?

Susan: Uh…no. Here, you hold it. You hold it. Hold it, huh? Come on! Let’s do this! All right, come on!

[Clears throat] Sweetheart, I got your hubby right here! You know, he’s alive and he’s well and he’s reaching out to you, sweetie. He’s reaching out to you and he loves you so much! And I just– I want you to feel his love! Feel his love! Come on! Come on, huh? Anything? Nothing. Why don’t you talk to her?

Ben: Ciara, it’s me. I’m alive and I’m trying to find you, but I need your help.

Ciara: Ben?

Susan: Come on, ben. Keep going. Keep going, honey. Come on.

Ben: Ciara, my love, if you can hear me, I need you to tell me where you are.

Ciara: Ben. Ben, is that you?

[Gasps] Allie.

Allie: Hey, I think you were having a nightmare.

Ciara: No, that wasn’t a nightmare. Allie, it was ben. I heard him. Allie, he’s alive!

Ben: Aw, so close. I-I almost felt her. I swear to god, I was so close. I don’t–I don’t know. Something happened.

Susan: All right, hold on. It’s-it’s the devil. The devil was messing up the signal, that’s all.

Ben: So then, now what? What do we do?

TR: What’s the latest with eli’s doctors? Do they think he has a chance to wake up?

Paulina: Ha, forget those doctors. This wonderful man with a smile that lights up the world? Oh, he’s coming out of this. I am sure of it.

Abe: Wow. It’s a full house, huh?

Lani: [Sighs] Come on in, dad.

Abe: I thought there weren’t supposed to be too many people in this room right now.

Paulina: Um, I’ll go. Yeah, I got to use the little girls’ room anyway. I’ll talk to you later, okay, sweetheart?

Lani: Oh, okay.

Paulina: Okay.

[Door shuts]

Abe: Well, was it something I said?

TR: More like something you did.

Chanel: G, it might not be that easy for you to find your sister. You see, I don’t know if anyone told you this, but she– allie, she took ciara.

Johnny: What? What? Took? Took her where?

Chanel: No one knows.

Johnny: Oh, my god. And the devil wants my cousin’s baby.

Chanel: Every cop in town has been looking for them. Oh, g, what if they shoot first and then ask questions later? I’m scared, johnny. I am so scared.

Johnny: It’s okay.

[Elevator dings]

Paulina: What the hell is going on here? I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Tripp: Ms. Howard, may I ask how you got injured this way?

Beth: I tripped. Landed on my face.

Tripp: Are you sure? Anything you tell me will remain strictly confidential. The doctors who work here are given treatment guidelines. They help us to accurately identify what’s going on with patients so we can provide the help that they need. I want to make sure that I’m doing all I can to help you, ms. Howard. So, I have to ask, did someone do this to you? There’s another option that might make you a little more comfortable. In situations like this, it’s often helpful to call in a female police officer.

Beth: No. No cops. Look, I’m in a lot of pain. I just need a prescription for painkillers.

Tripp: You should probably be admitted.

Beth: No, I can’T. I can’T. I can’t be here. I have to work.

Tripp: Ice first, then heat in a couple of days. And switch to ibuprofen as soon as you can.

Beth: I will.

Tripp: Would you like me to call a friend to pick you up?

Beth: No, I’m good.


[Solemn music]

Abe: So what exactly is it that you think I did?

TR: Paulina told me that she made it clear that she still had feelings for you, and you rejected her.

Abe: And what the hell business is it of yours?

TR: Actually, it is. I care about her very much, and I don’t want to see her get hurt.

Abe: [Laughs] That is rich coming from you. If anyone–

Lani: Okay, stop! Stop! Dad, stop! Stop it! My husband is fighting for his life, and you two are standing there arguing? What is wrong with you?

Paulina: Keep your filthy hands off my daughter!

Johnny: Look, ms. Price, I know how you feel about me, but chanel, can you please explain to your mother that I’m not the horrible person she thinks I am? I’m sorry. I-I really have to go.

Paulina: [Scoffs] Of course. Of course he runs off. Damn coward!

Chanel: No, johnny really does have something important to do.

Paulina: Oh, yeah, and what is that? Get to a hot date?

Chanel: No, he spent the night here last night, mama. He just got released.

Paulina: And went straight to manhandling you.

Chanel: No, he was comforting me because I was upset. That’s all.

Paulina: Oh, chanel, please don’t tell me that you’re getting sucked back into being with that little punk.

Chanel: You don’t understand.

Paulina: Oh, I understand all right! I understand that he and his twisted sister, they treated you like dirt, shattered your heart into a million pieces!

Chanel: Johnny never meant to hurt me, mama. And neither did allie.

Paulina: What? Well, what is this? This 180 you’re doing here, chanel? Suddenly defending those two? Making excuses for their disgraceful behavior?

Chanel: I’m not making excuses. I’m telling you that– that they weren’t responsible for that behavior.

Paulina: How could they not be? What in the world?

Chanel: It wasn’t them. Mama, they were possessed by the devil.

Allie: Ciara, honey, you couldn’t have heard ben. You were just dreaming.

Ciara: Allie, it was more than that. I’ve had this feeling before I know what this is, the feeling of ben trying to call out to me and reach out to me. I know that that is what this is. I just heard his voice telling me that he needs me.

Allie: Ciara, that’s impossible. And I know this is so hard to accept, but ben is dead.

Ciara: No, allie, I don’t believe that. Every part of me is telling me that that’s not true. Ben just told me himself. Allie, I have to find him.

Allie: Ciara, what you have to do is you have to take care of yourself and your baby, okay? And that means that we need to hide out here until they find evan frears, because if he finds you, he will kill you and your unborn child. Do you understand that?

Ciara: Yeah. Yeah, I guess I do. But what I don’t understand is why the cops aren’t standing guard outside. Rafe said he would send some, so where the hell are they?

Susan: Oh, the devil! The devil! He has isolated ciara! I mean, he wants her and the baby all to himself.

Ben: Yeah, but ciara doesn’t know that. She doesn’t know that allie is possessed, so she trusts her. That’s why the devil, aka allie, is able to manipulate ciara into doing whatever the hell he wants her to do.

Susan: No, not if she is strong and determined like we know she is.

Ben: [Sighs] True, but she just has to hang on until I can get to her.

Susan: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. She sure as shootin’ will. You mark my word for that! And if that devil gets in our way, ben weston, we are gonna go right the heck around him! That’s what we’re gonna do, because we are gonna find your wife. I promise you. I promise you, because love– love will find a way. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Abe: Sweetheart, I apologize.

TR: Lani, forgive me.

Lani: Whatever is going on between you two, I cannot have it going on in this room.

Abe: Understood.

[Cell phone buzzes]

TR: Oh, this is my west coast backer again. Look, I’m sorry, I have to take this. You hang in there, okay? I’m praying you for eli.

[Door shuts]

Abe: His west coast backer calls and he just leaves? His work is more important than being here with you.

Lani: Dad.

Susan: Oh, we need to think, think, think, and figure out how to get you and your spunky wife reconnected.

[Exhales sharply]

Ben: Susan.

Susan: Whoo! No, hold on. I’m just gonna get my little noodle working again.

Ben: No, I have an idea.

Susan: What? Hit me, then.

Ben: You remember how ciara and I have communicated psychically before, right? Like when everybody thought she was dead?

Susan: Yeah, yeah, yeah. I remember. Your wedding picture and the fortune cookie.

Ben: Yeah, but also when she was trapped in that glass room and she was being held prisoner, we had the same dream at the same time. I was romeo and she was juliet, and she used lines from the play to reach out to me and message me to tell me that she was alive and I needed to find her.

Susan: Okay. Do you have that play? ‘Cause this thing isn’t working.

Ben: Of course.

Susan: Okay! Well, don’t just stand there, romeo. Go fetch it.


Allie: Actually, the cops did come by. Two cops.

Ciara: What? How did I not know this?

Allie: You were asleep.

Ciara: Then why didn’t you wake me up?

Allie: There was no reason to; they didn’t have any new information.

Ciara: No new information? Allie, they must have said something.

Allie: Just that they have an apb out on evan.

Ciara: Oh, so you’re telling me that we are still in serious danger and the cops just left us?

Allie: No, no. They are down at the dock, okay? It’s the only way onto the island, and they’re keeping a watch so that no one can come hurt you.

Ciara: Okay, well, I want to talk to them. I just heard ben’s voice. I know he’s alive and I need to find him.

Allie: Okay, the cops made it very clear that leaving is not an option. For your safety and for your baby’s safety, you need to stay here.

Ciara: Damn it.

Allie: Hey, ciara? Hey, you really need to calm down, so how about– how about we do some of your lamaze breathing, okay?

Ciara: [Exhales sharply] I was supposed to do all that with ben. He was supposed to be my birthing coach. Allie, I need him. My baby needs him. I miss him so much.

Allie: Hey. Well, you’re not alone, ciara. You have me. I’ll be your birthing coach. And I’ll be so honored to do it, to help bring this precious baby boy into the world.

Paulina: So you’re saying to me all that exorcism did was to get the devil out of marlena? It didn’t get rid of him once and for all?

Chanel: Apparently not.

Paulina: Oh, all the more reason for you not to go anywhere near those evil twins. I don’t want satan jumping into you next.

Chanel: Mama, please. There are more important things to worry about right now. Allie, she-she took ciara.

Paulina: What? What do you mean “took”?

Chanel: Kidnapped. Abducted. Tricked into leaving town. They’re gone and no one knows where they went, but we do know that the devil wants ciara’s baby.

Paulina: Oh, lord, no.

Chanel: Yeah. Johnny– oh, god, I feel so bad for him– he went looking for them. Maybe I should see if I could help him.

Paulina: Oh, no. Didn’t I just tell you that you got to stay away from those two? Now, look, you’re not going anywhere near that mess. Let’s just go get some coffee, and you can tell me the rest of this insane story.

TR: I will get the money. I know I said I’d have it by now, but it won’t be long. Next week at the latest. You have my word. Hello? Hello? Damn.

[Sighs] What the hell are you doing back here? Okay, snacks and popcorn are gonna be expensive.

Abe: Look, I am so sorry, lani. I-I know I should keep my opinions to myself. Ray is your biological father, and he has every right to be here.

Lani: Still, dad, I– I understand your concerns about him. And why wouldn’t you have them, given what you know about the man? For years, he abused paulina and drugs. But, dad, since eli’s shooting, he has been great. He’s been here every day. He’s been helping out with the kids. Don’t worry. I would never leave jules and carver alone with him. But they are his grandchildren.

Abe: Well, they’re mine too. I mean, you can tell me not to worry all you want, but–

Lani: Dad, I know. I know tr’s history, okay? And I will keep my guard up, but honestly, I do not think that he’s a threat anymore. Look, he’s trying so hard to prove that he’s become a different man.

Abe: I don’t think that’s possible. I know from kate and nicole, who had experiences with abusers, that men like that rarely change.

Lani: And my experience as a cop tells me the same thing. But rarely is not never. What if tr is the exception?

Abe: And what if he’s not?

TR: If you think you’re gonna shoot your mouth off to lani again–

Beth: I’m not here to see lani. I’m here to see a doctor.

TR: You can’t be seen like this!

Beth: You think I want to be? I spent the entire day in my room trying to bear it, waiting for my ears to stop ringing, my eye to stop throbbing, for it to stop hurting just to breathe. I finally had to come get some painkillers. I’m on my way back to the motel now.

TR: Not good enough. You need to leave town. Go back to la.

Beth: Excuse me?

TR: I want you on the next flight out.

Beth: But what about the movie? I’ll look fine by then.

TR: The hell you will! You can’t do a movie looking like that!

Beth: You did this to me.

TR: [Scoffs] You’re lucky that’s all I did.

Ciara: Allie, I appreciate your offer, I really do, but ben and I have been practicing for months. He was supposed to be my birthing coach. I really– I don’t think I can have this baby without him.

Ben: “If I profane with my unworthiest hand…”

Ciara: Did you hear that?

Allie: Did I hear what?

Ciara: I just– I just heard something. Didn’t you?

Allie: No.

Ciara: Wait. I hear it again.

Ben: “This holy shrine.”

Susan: Keep going.

Ben: “The gentle fine is this.”

Ciara: [Gasps] I definitely heard it that time, allie. It was ben’s voice. He was reciting “romeo and juliet.”

Allie: There’s no way.

Ben: “My lips, two blushing pilgrims, ready stand to smooth that rough touch with a tender kiss.”

Ciara: Oh, my god. It is you. It’s really you, ben. You’re here. The world is full of make or break moments.

Ben: The next line is juliet’S.

Susan: Anything?

Ben: Maybe it’s not working.

Ciara: “Good pilgrim, you do wrong your hand too much.”

Ben: Oh, my god. Ciara, I can hear you.

Ciara: “Which mannerly devotion shows in this? For saints have hands that pilgrims’ hands do touch, and palm to palm is holy palmers’ kiss.”

Ben: [Exhales sharply] Ciara, wherever you are, you must be hearing and seeing me too. I am alive, baby. Please don’t give up on me. I’m alive, and I’m gonna find you.

Ciara: I believe you, ben.

Ben: Baby, please tell me where you are.

Ciara: I’m right here, baby. I can reach out and touch you.

[Dramatic music]

[Exhales sharply] No!

[Sinister music]

Abe: Ray is always on his best behavior around you and paulina, but I don’t buy it. I don’t think he’s truly reformed.

Lani: His most recent girlfriend, beth howard, she even vouched for him. She said that he never used drugs or laid a hand on her the entire time that they were together.

Abe: What is it?

Lani: Remember when beth came by to visit me the other day?

Abe: She brought flowers.

Lani: Yeah, and after you left, she–she said she had something to tell me. I sort of forgot about it, but now–

Abe: Does it have something to do with ray?

Lani: I don’t know. We got interrupted, and then she left, and… I never found out what it was.

Abe: Maybe you should.

Beth: What are you gonna do to me that you haven’t already done? Shoot me, like you shot eli?

TR: Shut up! I told you I had nothing to do with that.

Beth: And you also told everybody that you weren’t doing drugs and you weren’t beating women.

TR: You deserve what I did to you. You broke our agreement.

Beth: So what happens now? I go back to la and you propose to paulina?

TR: And she says yes. Everything is working out exactly as planned with paulina.

Beth: What if she starts asking questions? Are you gonna kill her? Hell, you almost killed me just for being in the same room with your daughter.

TR: Keep your voice down.

Beth: Like I said, paulina price is no fool. She is not gonna let you get away with robbing her blind.

TR: [Scoffs] Don’t you worry about paulina. Worry about what’s going to happen to you if you stick around salem and anybody sees you like this. Let me spell it out for you, beth. If you show your face around town again or talk to anybody–anybody– about what I did, I’ll kill you. Get it?

Beth: Got it. I’m leaving.

[Tense music]

Paulina: Ray? Isn’t that your ex who just got on that elevator? The lows of bipolar depression

Paulina: That was the woman you used to date, right?

TR: Beth. Yes, that was her.

Paulina: Oh, well, I only saw her from the back, so I wasn’t sure. What was she doing here?

TR: Looking for me. She decided to drop out of the movie and go back to california.

Paulina: Just like that?

TR: Just like that.

Beth: Well, I need to be on the first flight to la, so a layover is fine. So, I’m booked then? Great, thanks.

[Cell phone ringing] Hello?

Lani: Hi, beth. It’s lani, eli grant’s wife.

Beth: Why are you calling me?

Lani: The other day when you came by the hospital, you-you said you had something to tell me. I’d like to know what it is.

Ciara: It’s okay.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Leo: You asked what the hell I wanted. The truth is, I spent my whole life wanting things– money, power, alamainian emeralds. But now I’ve come to realize there’s only one thing I want. And that’s you.

Nancy: Now, you know, bonnie, I really thought that I would’ve been the last person that craig wanted to see. Yeah. But I’m so glad I went. Uh-huh. No. You know, when I got there, he was such a hot mess. Yeah. But we sat and we talked, and we realized that after everything we’ve both been through, that we’re still friends. Yeah. No, no. Then leo showed up.

[Laughs] No one has ever accused leo of not having nerve. Yeah. And th– clyde? You mean the jerk who was going to take me out on my first date and then I never heard from him again, that clyde? I’m telling you right– oh, I’m so sorry. You.

Jack: What are you talking about?

Abigail: You know, based on his reaction, I’m assuming you didn’t tell him what you shared with me before rafe led you to the squad car. So did you want to tell him, or should I? I didn’t think so, because, you know, you never want to admit you’ve done anything until you’ve already been caught.

Jack: Abigail, what are you talking about?

Abigail: This is about the fact that grandma laura’s death was not an accident. Was it? She told me that she killed grandma laura on purpose.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Jack: Is that true?

Gwen: Course it isn’T. She must’ve misheard what I said.

Abigail: I heard you very clearly. Her exact words were, and I quote, “oh, and by the way, your precious grandmother, I killed that bitch on purpose.”

Jack: God. My god.

Gwen: Was last night not enough fun for you, abigail? Did you wake up this morning and think, ooh. How can I hurt gwen more? How can I make her pay even more?

Jennifer: You do realize that you really, really are not the victim here, right? But my mother was your victim. Or should I say one of your victims?

Jack: Why didn’t you say anything about this last night?

Abigail: Because I felt like you had already been through enough.

Gwen: Or you hadn’t thought it up yet.

Jennifer: Oh, yeah. Rafe had you in cuffs and he was leading you away, and I saw you, you whispered something in abigail’s ear, and I doubt you were complimenting her dress.

Gwen: It’s a problem I have. I don’t like someone else having the last word.

Jack: Why did you choose to tell me now?

Jennifer: Because I told her she had to, jack. You have to know. We are now talking about murder.

Jack: Are we? Did you kill laura?

Nancy: You know what? I take it back. When I stepped on your foot, I wish I’d broken every one of your metatarsals. Bonnie, look, I’ll call you back. I got to get out of here.

Clyde: Come on, nancy, wait.

Nancy: Wait? I have waited for you, clyde. I waited all day yesterday for you to call like you said you would.

Clyde: I know. I’m sorry about that, but there was a reason.

Nancy: Yeah. And I know what it is. You don’t want to date me, but you’re too much of a coward to tell me.

Clyde: No, my son, ben, he went missing.

Nancy: I–is he okay? Did they find him?

Clyde: Yeah, eventually. He was chained up in the dimera crypt.

Nancy: [Laughs] Okay. He was chained up in the dimera crypt? Oh, wh–wait. Did stefano dimera come back from the dead again?


Clyde: No, it was the devil.

Nancy: [Laughs] Oh. And how is he doing?

Clyde: Listen, I know it sounds crazy, but it’s not funny. We found ben, but we have no idea where his wife is, and she’s about to have a baby. What we do know is the devil has kidnapped her.

Nancy: Y–you know, clyde, if you don’t want to date me, you don’t have to recycle old tales from the crypt.

Clyde: I swear on the life my unborn grandson that I am telling the truth. But if you don’t believe me, take a look at this.

Chad: I’m gonna kill him.

Sonny: Okay.

Chad: I’m gonna find leo stark, and I am gonna kill him.

Sonny: Chad.

Chad: I’m gonna get rolf to bring him back from the dead so I can kill him again.

Sonny: Buddy, hey. You’re gonna have to calm down.

Chad: Calm dow–how am i supposed to calm down when this is on the front page of the paper?

Sonny: I mean, it does make you look pretty busty.

Chad: Really?

Sonny: [Laughing] What?

Chad: It’s not the time to be funny, all right. You know what it is? Right now would be a good moment for us to reflect upon the fact that all of this humiliation and degradation that I am going through and continue to go through in this whole gay fantasia is your fault.

Sonny: Chad. It’s a picture of you in drag, okay? It’s not that big of a deal. It’s not degrading. It’s not humiliating–

Chad: The story is.

Sonny: What–what story?

Chad: The exclusive that leo stark gave to “the intruder.” Listen to this. Listen. “When I first met chad dimera in phoenix, there was an instant attraction between us.” In his dreams. “Even though he was a married man, he insisted we go out to a gay club. And after a wild night of drinking and dancing, the two of us ended up in bed together.” You know, and he leaves out the very pertinent fact that he crawled into my bed like a slug. I mean, the little creep outed me. And I wasn’t even in!

Leo: I want you back, craig. I want you to forgive me, and I want you to marry me.

Craig: Sorry. You already have a husband.

Leo: I told you, I only married darius so he could get his green card. He begged me to help him. Do you know how cold those winters are in canada? They are hell on his complexion, which is not her strong suit to begin with.

Craig: And why in god’s name would I care about any of this now?

Leo: Because I need to make you see I don’t love darius or any other man. I love you.

Nancy: [Chuckles] So you really expect a picture of chad dimera in drag to convince me that the devil made you not call me?

Clyde: What? No, no, no. That’s the wrong story. Here.

Nancy: [Sighs] “Crypt captive baby daddy rescued: Pregnant wife now missing”? Oh, clyde. You must be so worried.

Clyde: Appreciate that. But I’m really sorry about the dinner.

Nancy: No, no. It’s okay. I mean, you’ve got so much on your mind and, well, you just forgot.

Clyde: I was hoping that I could maybe make it up to you if you’ve got the time, and could take you out to lunch.

Nancy: But what about your son and your daughter-in-law?

Clyde: Well, police are looking for her, and ben would rather be alone right now. He’s always been that way. Unlike me, who likes company. Especially nice company, like you.

Nancy: [Spluttering] I would love to, yes.

Clyde: Well, good. Hope you don’t mind brady pub. I do have an employee discount over there.

Nancy: That would be fine.

Clyde: Good. Then you can tell me all about your ex-husband’s wedding.

Craig: Leo, I have heard you say “I love you” a million times. But I know that you were lying to me from the second we met. I–I don’t know why I would believe you now, hm.

Leo: You should believe me because of your feet.

Craig: My feet?

Leo: Yes. Your feet. When they hurt after a long shift at the hospital, I rub them for you. And when you order some drink you can’t stand, some fruity something, I trade my scotch and soda, no complaints. When you’re driving me around, I touch the back of your head, and I curl your hair into those little circles because I know how much you like it. Those are just some of the little ways that I show I love you. But there’s also a big way. You should know that I love you because for the first time in my life, I admitted that I did something wrong and I apologized. I’m sorry I lied to you. I’m sorry I seduced you and tried to marry you for your money. I am sorry for so many things. But there is one thing I am not sorry for.

Craig: And what’s that? Hm?

Leo: Even if we are through, I am not sorry that I fell in love with you. Because our time together have been the best days of my life.

Gwen: I’m telling you the truth.

Jennifer: He has your word on that? But really, I mean, what is your word worth? There’s no one in this room that would believe anything that you would say right now, gwen.

Gwen: My father asked me a question. Are you going to let me answer it?

Jennifer: Yeah, yeah. But first, can I remind you that we already talked about this? You swore to me that my mother’s death was an accident. And I believed you. You looked me in the eye and you told me that you were sorry, that it wasn’t intentional. And I–I accepted that. I–I accepted you as part of our family. So back then, was that the truth or not? Life’s been hard enough.

Gwen: I was telling you the truth that day. Your mother’s death was an accident.

Abigail: Which compels me to reiterate that that’s not what you said to me at the wedding. Unless, of course, I managed to misinterpret “I killed that bitch on purpose.”

Gwen: No, you heard exactly what I wanted you to hear, and you took it just the way I wanted you to take it.

Abigail: But why would you say something like that if it wasn’t true?

Gwen: Can you not comprehend that I wanted to hurt you? I mean, really, are you so perfect that you can’t understand a base impulse?

Jack: So that was a lie?

Gwen: Yes, it was a lie. Look, we all know that she is wonderful and that I am dirt. But she said that she would be my matron of honor. She said she’d be my sister, and I believed her. But instead she used my wedding as a way to kill any chance that I would ever at being happy, to make sure that I would lose xander, to make sure I would lose my father. I was handcuffed, so I couldn’t exactly punch her, could I? So instead, I punched her with my words.

Chad: “It was clear that since that fabulous night to remember, chad could not forget about me. When I returned to salem, he left his wife and small children at home and came knocking at my hotel room door drunk and begging me for sex.”

Sonny: Chad, I’m–

Chad: Shut up. There’s more. “Earlier, his soon-to-be cuckolded wife, abigail dimera–” that’s great. He took a swipe at her. She’s gonna love that. “Abigail dimera confided to me that chad was obsessed with me.” As I recall, that was another one of your ideas. You were full of wonderful ideas that night, weren’t you?

Sonny: I know. Mea culpa. All right? Mea culpa.

Chad: “But I rejected chad’s desperate pleas for a one-on-one liaison because I was engaged and in love with another man.”

Sonny: Wh– who are you calling?

Chad: Who do you think I am calling? I am calling my lawyer, so I can sue “the intruder” and leo for libel.

Sonny: Are you sure you want to do that?

Craig: Are you trying to play me again, leo?

Leo: I’ve always been a player. But in this particular moment, I’m being perfectly straight with you. Poor choice of words.

Craig: You are actually gay, aren’t you?

Leo: Now, that would be quite the con, huh? But you more than anybody should know, I am gay.

Craig: You said you fell in love with me, but when we first met–

Leo: You were just another mark.

Craig: Yeah.

Leo: I could tell you were closeted, so I lured you out with every intention of marrying you, divorcing you, and taking you for every penny you had. I would’ve succeeded too, had it not been for will, sonny, chad, brady, and your daughter, chloe.

Nancy: I guess you could say that craig and leo’s wedding didn’t go off without a hitch. But then again, maybe– maybe it did.

Clyde: I have no idea what that means, but I look forward to you explaining it to me over lunch. Shall we?

Chloe: Mom?

Nancy: Oh, hi, honey.

Chloe: What the hell are you doing with this guy? Find your beat

Nancy: Chloe, language. Clyde, this is my daughter and her boyfriend, brady black. Oh, is it all right if I call you her boyfriend?

Brady: Yeah, yeah, that’s– that’s fine by me.

Nancy: Oh, good. Well, this is clyde weston.

Chloe: Yeah, we know who he is.

Nancy: Oh, good. Then you should know we are about to go on our first date.

Chloe: Over my dead body.

Chad: Well, the way I see it, I have two options. I can kill him or I can sue him.

Sonny: Okay, look, I really don’t think you want to do that.

Chad: Yes, sonny, I really do want to do that.

Sonny: Okay, look, in order to sue for libel, there has to be false statement purporting to be fact. Technically, everything in this article, everything that you and abigail said and did is true. You did try to seduce leo.

Chad: Yeah, because you pleaded with me to do it. Once again, this was your fault. Actually, you know what, sonny? This was my fault, okay? Because I let you talk me into what I knew to be a deeply, truly horrible idea.

Leo: No matter what they did to try and break us up, I was always one step ahead of them. And I would’ve gotten away with it too, had it not been for those meddling kids.

Craig: Scooby-doo?

Leo: Getting up early on sunday mornings to watch old saturday morning cartoons with you. Another example of how I love you.

Craig: Or two cases of arrested development.

Leo: It just got scary, how much we have in common, how easy it was to be with you, how fun.

Craig: And my money had nothing to do with how easy it all was?

Leo: Well, I won’t deny it. I liked your money too. I tell you, that prenup chloe had drawn up was a stroke of genius. A move I did not anticipate. When I saw it, my first thought was, game over. There’s nothing I can do but walk away. There’s nothing left in this for me.

Craig: Then why did you sign it, hm?

Leo: I signed it because in that moment, when given the choice between giving up everything that I had worked for, everything that you had worked for, I didn’t care about losing any of it. I didn’t care that darius was gonna be furious with me. I only cared about losing you. And now, the million-dollar question. Do you believe me? I think you do. But you don’t have to answer that question. Answer this one instead. Can you forgive me? Can we please start over?

Abigail: Why should we believe you, hm? After all of the horrible things that you have done to our family, it is hardly a stretch to think that you could’ve killed grandma laura. You drugged me. It took me months to recover, but I did; I was lucky. But poor sarah? You made sure she got a second dose of the drug. She may never be herself ever again.

Jack: Actually, there’s reason for hope. Gwen told xander where he could find rolf’s antidote. She’s doing what she can to undo the harm.

Abigail: [Scoffs] So what, am I– am I just supposed to act like she’s mother teresa now? Or dad, maybe her back is up against the wall, she’s actually having to pay for something that she’s done, and this is just some last minute sympathy. You know, I sure hope that maggie and xander take the time to test whatever it is you led them to.

Gwen: Do you really think–

Abigail: That you would do it again? Yes. I do. You know why? Because you have made it very clear that anybody who is loved by anyone that you think is supposed to love you is fair game. I think you would be willing to hurt sarah now more than you ever have.

Gwen: You said your piece. Now, I’d like a moment alone with my father, please.

Abigail: I bet you would.

Jennifer: Jack. I will support any decision that you make right now. But I want you to know that I will never trust that woman to be a part of our family ever again.

Gwen: You said at the wedding that you were done with me. And now, today, there’s even more damning evidence against me. So I take it nothing’s gonna change your mind about me. Right?

Jack: You’ll always be my daughter.

Gwen: Yeah, you’re talking biologically.

Jack: No. When laura sent your mother away, she made you think that I turned my back on you, that I knew about you, but went on living my life pretending you didn’t exist. I never chose to do that.

Gwen: So– so we can move past this?

Jack: I will always be your father. But after what you did to sarah, and to abigail, I honestly don’t know what kind of a family we could ever be.

[Dramatic music]

Nancy: Chloe, I know it’s hard to see me moving on from your father, but what’s good for the gander is good for the goose. Especially when the gander likes ganders.

Chloe: Oh, mom, I don’t care that you’re dating. It’s who you’re dating. This guy just got out of prison.

Nancy: I know that. Clyde told me. You know, listen, men can change who they are. And clyde said he’s changed, and I believe him. Now, shall we go? I’m starving.

Chloe: Ugh, why am I getting a feeling of déj vu? I just–I’ve spent the last few months trying to stop one parent from dating the wrong person, and now I have to do the same with the other parent?

Brady: Look, I was here for you when it was leo and your dad, so I’m gonna be here for you with clyde and your mom.

Chloe: Thank you. At least I know I’m dating the right person.

Chad: Well, then if I can’t sue him, I’m gonna give my own interview. I’ll tell everyone that leo stark is a bigamist.

Sonny: Chad, you really want to sink down to his level?

Chad: Yes, he hit me below the belt. It’s time to return the favor.

Sonny: I’m telling you, I–I really just think you should let this go. Okay, stories like this, they tend to just fizzle out on their own. You would just be adding fuel to the fire.

Chad: Oh, yeah? That’s easy for you to say. You’re not even mentioned in the article.

Sonny: Wait, what? You’re right.

Chad: Yeah. Why is that? Why didn’t leo come after you? Maybe leo was right. Maybe that’s why you didn’t come to the wedding.

Sonny: Don’t even infer that. Okay, I told you, I had a business meeting. Okay, and besides, you heard what he said. Leo was going after everyone who came between him and craig. And I have a sickening feeling you were just the first one on the list.

Craig: I do believe you love me, leo. Part of me wants to forgive you and take you in my arms and hold you and never let you go.

Leo: But?

Craig: But I don’t trust you. And trust is something that matters to me. I took a huge leap of faith to be with you. I had to stop living a lie, a lie that I was telling myself and telling the world.

Leo: That’s a good thing, craig.

Craig: Yeah. But in the process, I tore apart my family, and I hurt the only woman I ever loved, just to love you.

Leo: Does that mean you’re going back to be with nancy?

Craig: No. I am gay. And I will never hide that again.

[Sighs] But you and I, we’re done. I left your stuff downstairs.

[Soft dramatic music]

Leo: Do you hate me?

Craig: No, leo, I don’t hate you. But I cannot be with you. But because of you, I can now be myself. Goodbye, kiddo. With all that’s happened, I– I don’t regret loving you.

[Dramatic music]

Brady: Sonny.

Sonny: Hey.

Brady: I just saw the article in which leo outed chad.

Sonny: Yeah, I was there when chad saw it, and it was not pretty.

Brady: Yeah. Yeah. I’ll admit, I mean, when I saw the picture, it was– it was kind of funny, but then I read the article, and I’ll tell you, that leo, he’s quite the creep. I mean, every one of those lies was calculated to hurt.

Sonny: Yeah, well, that’s leo for you. He didn’t just go after chad. He went after his marriage, his family.

Brady: Yeah, which is odd. I think it’s odd because why wouldn’t he–why wouldn’t he go after me or chloe? Why chad?

Sonny: Or me.

Leo: Well, don’t worry. You’re next. And in case you’re feeling left out, brady, once I’m done with sonny boy here, you and you vacuous little girlfriend will then be next.

Chloe: Dad, hey, I got your text. I was starting to think that you maybe never wanted to see me again.

Craig: Oh, now you know that was never gonna happen.

Chloe: I know last night was awful; I’m sorry.

Craig: It’s okay; there’s no need for a postmortem. Leo and I have said our goodbyes.

Chloe: Again, I’m sorry.

Craig: It’s okay. I know I was upset last night.

Chloe: And you had every right to be.

Craig: Ah, but, having had time to think, I realized that everything you did, you had reason for. You did everything because you love me.

Chloe: I do. And I swear that’s why I did it.

Craig: I know.

Chloe: Unfortunately, I have a lot of experience in putting my life back together again, so if you need me to talk you through it, you know?

Craig: I’m okay. Thanks, honey.

Chloe: Have you eaten anything? Want to get some lunch?

Craig: I’m okay.

Chloe: You don’t want to face the world, we can just order some room service.

Craig: Sweetie, after talking to leo, I made a few decisions. I’m leaving salem. And I’m going back to new york.

Clyde: Nancy. I don’t know you very well. But what I do know, I like. A lot.

Nancy: Oh. My, my, my. This is like the beginning of our first date, and that sounded like the prelude to a kiss-off.

Clyde: No. No, think of it more as a– it’s like an offering for an easy way out. You see, I know what my son means to me. And the last thing in the world I want to do is come between you and your daughter. So if you’d like to back out now, that’s totally cool with me.

[Soft dramatic music]

[Door opens]

Abigail: Dad left. It’s just you and me. And I want the truth. Did you or did you not kill my grandmother?

It’s the most wonderful

time of the year

Jennifer: The horrible thing is, jack, is given the arrogance of what my mom did, and then gwen had to pay for that arrogance, I can understand why she would want my mom dead.

Jack: After you left, she swore to me that she didn’t kill laura, that she was telling the truth when she told us that all she was trying to do was hurt abigail, which in and of itself is pretty horrifying, as if she hadn’t hurt abigail enough already.

Jennifer: So which of the two scenarios are the truth, jack?

Jack: Damned if I know.

Abigail: So were you lying to my mother when you said you didn’t kill her? Or were you lying to me when you said that you did?

Gwen: Not knowing is killing you, isn’t it? And knowing that, I’m never gonna give you an answer. Oh, abigail. Poor you. I am never going to tell you what really happened to your sweet little granny. You will never know. Payback’s a bitch, isn’t it?

Chad: No, my wife is not leaving me for another woman. No, no, no. No, I did not have a threesome with two men. I don’t know where you get your information, buddy, but if you print this garbage, I am gonna make you pay.

[Cell phone ringing] Ugh.

Nancy: Clyde, I love my daughter. But I’m a grown woman. And my days of pleasing other people are over. The things that I have been through in the last couple of months, I deserve my happy ending.

Chloe: What? What about your job?

Craig: I already gave seth burns my resignation. I didn’t feel good about taking the job away from kayla. The hospital will run much better with her in charge.

Chloe: That’s not true.

Craig: Mm.

Chloe: But–so there’s no– there’s no changing your mind?

Craig: No. But I’m glad you came over so i could say goodbye before I left. I wanted to see you. And I wanted to tell you, princess, that I am sorry. I’m sorry about how much I hurt you and how much I hurt your mother.

Chloe: Dad, all I ever wanted was for you to be happy.

Craig: I know.

Chloe: Okay? And I know that you were never gonna be happy not being who you really are. And the fact that leo is–

Craig: Ah.

Chloe: Okay, I’m not gonna repeat what I think about leo. But I just hope that someday you meet a man who’s worthy of you.

Craig: Me too. Here’s hoping.

Chloe: And despite all the drama and the fighting, I was really glad to have you back. And I’m gonna miss you.

Craig: Aw, honey.

[Both sniffling] I’m gonna miss you too. No man has ever had a better daughter. I love you, sweetie. I love you.

Chloe: I love you too.

Brady: I see that craig has sent you packing.

Sonny: Yeah, with your tail between your legs.

Leo: Yes. Craig and I are done. But I’m not going anywhere. This may have started as a scam, but it became very personal to me. And you all cost me the man that I love. So remember, hell hath no fury like a gay man scorned. Because I’m coming for you. I’m coming for all of you. =

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sonny: Okay. So the double wedding ended with nobody getting married?

Chad: That’s right. We had one bride, three grooms, and not a single “I do.” It was a very salem wedding.

Sonny: I’m sorry to stop you, but, chad, can we– can we get back to leo, please?

Chad: You mean his devastation…

Sonny: Mm-hmm.

Chad: His utter defeat, his total public humiliation?

Sonny: Oh, that it is, like, the most incredible freudenschade ever. I just–I wish I could have seen what his face looked like when you showed up with his first husband.

Leo: The face looked just like this: Ready to kill.

[Dramatic music]

Craig: [Sighs]

[Knock at door] Go away.

[Urgent knocking] Whoever it is, go away.

Nancy: Craig, it’s me, nancy.

Craig: Are you here for your “I told you so” moment? You deserve it. God knows I do.

Xander: Hi, maggie.

Maggie: Xander. Oh, my goodness. It’s so good to see you, aw.

Xander: It’s good to see you too. I heard you were back. How’s sarah?

Maggie: Well, she’s settling into the clinic. Everyone there is– they’re wonderful, but… there hasn’t been any change.

Xander: I’m sorry. Must have been hard leaving her like that.

Maggie: Well, they said it was better that I do. Wait a minute. What are you doing here? I thought you and gwen would be on your honeymoon.

Xander: Yeah, well… there was no honeymoon because there was no wedding.

[Laughter] But we should go get those tuxes fitted. I don’t wanna be late for my own wedding.

Gwen: Oh, yeah. So… hey, the next time that I see you…

Xander: I’ll be making an honest woman of you.

Gwen: [Laughs] Yeah, we’ll see about that.

[Door clicks open] Xander?

Jack: Guess again.

Jennifer: Yeah. Thanks, shawn. And please let me know if there’s anything that I can do to help. Yeah, and we’ll just be praying that ciara is found safe and very soon. All right, bye-bye.

Abigail: Do the police have any leads at all?

Jennifer: No, no. This world has gone mad. Ciara’s missing. Christian maddox is on the loose. Allie is possessed by the devil.

Abigail: You know, maybe this isn’t really a good time.

Jennifer: No, honey, I’m sorry. No, what’s going on?

Abigail: It’s nothing.

Jennifer: No, you came here for a reason. Really, what is it?

Gwen: Just so you know, your precious grandmother, I killed that old bitch on purpose.

Jennifer: Abigail, what is it?

Abigail: It’s about gwen.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Maggie: Xander, what happened?

Xander: Look, let’s just– let’s sit down, okay?

Maggie: Honey, are you all right? You were so determined to get married.

Xander: Maggie, I just– I couldn’t go through with it. There were– there were things about gwen that I didn’t know.

Maggie: Like what?

Xander: [Sighs] It’s about sarah.

Gwen: Well, I sure wasn’t expecting to see you. The last thing you said to me was that you were done with me.

Jack: This was jennifer’s idea.

Gwen: Oh, come on. Don’t joke. Nobody’s that wonderful.

Jack: Don’t you dare. Don’t you dare say anything about her.

Gwen: You’re right. You’re right. It’s a force of habit. Always attack, never admit. Sorry.

[Sighs] Yeah, like you’re ever gonna believe I’m sorry, like you’re ever gonna believe a single word that comes out of my mouth again. This is true, though. Besides xander, I– I cannot even bear to imagine what last night must have been like for you.

Jack: Wasn’t “father of the bride,” was it? I forgave you over and over.

Gwen: You forgave the unforgivable, and I threw all that forgiveness back in your face.

Jack: [Sighs] Jennifer says– last night when I told you I was done with you, I meant it. I hate what you did. But jennifer said–says I won’t be able to pull it off. There’s nothing I can do about the fact that you’re my daughter. I can’t be done with you.

Gwen: Well, my mum managed to pull it off. Why can’t you? I mean, god, haven’t I given you enough bloody reasons?

Jack: More than enough. When I think about what you did to abigail, to my family, I can, in some weird, dark deveraux way, understand why you did it, but this, what you did to sarah, is unfathomable.

Gwen: Again, I don’t expect you to believe me, but the reason I did that– and I have a hard time believing it myself, but… the reason I did that…

Jack: What? You gonna tell me the devil made you do it?

Gwen: In a way, yes.

Limu emu

Chad: How did you get in here?

Leo: I told harold I was the new french maid. Does it matter how I got in here? Did you think you could do what you did without one final confrontation, like I was just gonna slink away?

Sonny: Certainly hope so.

Leo: At least she had the kishkes to show up at the wedding and look me in the eye as she shattered my dreams, while you, no doubt, were cowering in the kiriakis fruit cellar, terrified of the forces you’d unleashed.

Sonny: I had a work call. Otherwise–oh, yeah, no, I wouldn’t have missed it.

Leo: A work call.

[Mockingly] “This is sonny. I’m 6’3″ with a swimmer’s build.” Please.

Chad: Leo, don’t you think the moral outrage would pack a bigger punch if you were an innocent victim and not a– well, how should I put it– a manipulative, conniving little worm?

Leo: Oh, you and the wife, the moral police, the jim and tammy faye of salem blowing up not one marriage but two in the name of middle-class morality.

Sonny: Okay, I think both the upper class and the lower class would agree that, you know, bigamy and kidnapping are, um, wrong.

Leo: Okay, you keep telling yourself that this all stems from your desire to see justice done. I’ve known this entire time what your little crusade was all about, and it’s rather pathetic.

Sonny: What?

Chad: Okay. I’ll bite. What’s it all about?

Leo: Obviously sonny wants me back.

Craig: Go ahead. Enjoy yourself. You were right. Leo is a gold digger, and I was an utter fool. Oh, wait, nancy. Please, don’t close that door. By now, all salem knows what an idiot I was. Go ahead. Be as loud as you want. Rub it in. Remind me that you told me that I would regret the day that I let leo stark into my life.

Nancy: It’s all true, but that’s not why I’m here.

Craig: Oh, really? Then why are you here?

Nancy: To say I’m sorry.

[Dramatic music]

Gwen: If I try to explain it, it will just sound like I’m trying to justify what I did, and that’s not possible.

Jack: No, it’s not.

Gwen: Last night, I found myself sitting in a cell– the first night of many, many nights I’d be sitting in a cell. And… if I closed my eyes, I would see xander staring at me, disgusted. And I’d see you staring at me, repulsed. So I didn’t close my eyes again all night. I just tried to understand, how did I get here? How did I– how did I make it impossible for the only two people that I care about in the entire world– how did I make it so impossible for them to care about me? You are… probably the most forgiving person imaginable, and yet… you came here because you won’t, you… can’t give up on being a father to me.

[Sighs] Yet you can’t even look at me.

Jack: You’re the one not looking at me.

Gwen: You’re right. Last night, I thought about all the things I did to you… and to your family and to my sister and to… xander… and sarah and her mother, and… I realized I did all that to get what I wanted. But I have nothing I want, nothing.

[Sighs] And then… I sort of had this “come to jesus” moment where I realized that all those things I did, sort of like my mum putting the spike in her arm, when someone does something over and over and over again to ensure that they stay the same miserable human being. And, you know, I’ve been telling myself for months that kristen dimera blackmailed me into doing what I was doing, but really… she was just like my mother’s drug dealer. And just like my mum did… I put a spike in my own arm.

Sonny: [Laughs] I want you back? Okay, that’s like saying, “oh, gosh, oh, I wish my ibs would flare up again.”

Chad: That–you know, sonny, I don’t know. Maybe he’s onto something. People say there’s a fine line between love and hate.

Sonny: Yeah, idiotic people. You know what? I will never forget what you did to me, and I am ecstatic that I got to play a part in stopping you from doing it to anyone else.

Leo: What I have with craig is nothing like the dreary time I had with you. I love craig. I never even liked you. As you may recall, I was paid to go out with you. It was a job– one I did inadequately, I might add, because you’re not my type, and you’re a d-minus in bed.

Sonny: [Laughs] What?

Leo: The only reason you didn’t flunk is because I gave you extra credit for effort. He may have lacked finesse, but his enthusiasm was exhausting.

Sonny: Oh, that is a crock, and you know it.

Leo: I have it on tape.

Sonny: Yeah, I’ve seen those tapes, and you were very into it.

Leo: I was faking it.

Sonny: Okay, then what about the moaning?

Leo: Fake.

Sonny: The yelling?

Leo: Fake.

Sonny: The panting?

Leo: Fake.

Sonny: The screaming?

Leo: Fake. I faked it all. Sorry, babe.

Craig: You’re sorry. What do you have to be sorry for? You didn’t do anything, nancy.

Nancy: Craig, that’s not what I meant. I mean I’m sorry that this happened to you.

Craig: Really?

Nancy: Really. Look. I know what it’s like to love someone so much… that you ignore the abundant evidence that’s right in front of your eyes. It happened to me, and now it’s happened to my best friend.

Xander: Of all people, I should have been able to see through gwen’s lies.

Maggie: I’m not blaming you for what gwen did, but you did leave sarah behind the moment you found out that she wasn’t going to immediately recover.

Xander: [Sighs]

Maggie: I’m sorry. You know…

[Sighs] I’m not being fair.

Xander: No, I– I think you’re being fair and accurate.

Maggie: No, I gave you my blessing… even if I really didn’t mean it. I shouldn’t be taking out my anger at gwen on you. I know that you have every right to get on with your life. And anyway, this isn’t the time for recriminations. We need to figure out what we should do next. I mean, now that sarah wasn’t given the right antidote but some dose of the original drug… there’s a chance that that antidote might work.

Xander: You’re right.

Maggie: I’m gonna call kayla.

Xander: No, I already have. Kayla thinks there’s a good chance that the antidote can still work. I asked chad to reach out to rolf again.

Maggie: Well, that’s wonderful.

Xander: No, not really. Rolf managed to get himself into trouble with some chemistry experiment gone wrong. He’s in solitary confinement.

Maggie: Oh, we have gotta get ahold of that drug.

Xander: You know what? I have an idea.

Jack: When kristen blackmailed you, told you what she’d done to sarah, didn’t you see that you had to tell xander, tell maggie?

Gwen: If I told xander the truth, I knew I’d lose him. I knew that he loved sarah more than he loved me.

Jack: No, you didn’t know that. You feared that. What you should have known was that you were carrying all the risk. Didn’t you see back then what could have happened to you and ava if you’d been caught? Breaking a convicted prisoner out of prison carries a hefty minimum sentence.

Gwen: So does murder.

Jack: What are you talking about?

Jennifer: Abigail, you’re scaring me. Whatever it is, just tell me.

Abigail: It’s about grandma. Oh, god, it’s hard to even say it. This–gwen said to me– these are her exact words– “I killed that bitch on purpose.” My asthma felt anything but normal.

Leo: The only reason I had anything to do at all with you was money.

Sonny: Are you kidding? That’s the exact reason you went after craig.

Leo: In the beginning, maybe, but I fell in love with him. And now he hates me because of the two of you.

Chad: Does it ever occur to you to take responsibility for your own actions, leo? Craig hates you because you lied to him over and over again.

Sonny: Yeah. You know what? And you wouldn’t even be legally married to him even if we hadn’t done anything. You know, you could have just come clean with him, told him you had a husband.

Leo: Why do you care? It’s not like craig was your friend. You think you were doing him a favor? Now he’s just as miserable as I am.

Leo: Okay, trust me, leo, it’s not that hard to get over you.

Leo: That is not true. And deep down, craig knows that what we had is real, or I never would’ve signed that prenup. Oh, god, I hate that word. But I never would’ve signed it if all I cared about was taking him to the cleaners.

Chad: But what are you doing here? You’re trying to convince the wrong guys.

Leo: You’re right. But since you were so intent on making me pay, I want you both to know that now it’s my turn.

Craig: I still can’t believe leo has a husband.

Nancy: Oh, he does look good in a dress. Too soon? I’m sorry, he does. But out of that dress, he’s not as good-looking as you are. You are still quite a catch, craig wesley.

Craig: Thank you, sweetheart. Right back at you.

Jennifer: Gwen told you that she killed my mother on purpose?

Abigail: That’s right.

Jennifer: No, honey, she kept denying it. She–she insisted that it was an accident. Why would she change her story now?

Jack: Why are you talking about murder?

Gwen: Well–

Jack: Answer me. What did you mean, what you just said, “so does murder”?

Gwen: Just–I was just saying that like abigail pointed out, I planned to switch those syringes. It was premeditated. And for all I knew, that– a second dose of that drug could have very well killed sarah.

Jack: Thank god it didn’T.

Gwen: Even as it is, though, I did– I did take sarah’s life. The sarah that xander knew and fell in love with no longer exists. Go on. Say it.

Jack: You knew what that drug did to abigail, not to mention what it did to sarah when kristen gave it to her the first time.

Gwen: Yet I did it with full knowledge and malice aforethought. Now you wish I never existed.

Jack: No, I don’T.

Gwen: Yes, of course you do. How could you not? Xander does. Before, you said that I didn’t know that xander loved sarah more than he loved me, but he did. Yes, he told me he loved me. But then once sarah was in the picture, we both understood the unspoken.

Jack: [Sighs]

Gwen: Xander’s the only man that I’ve ever loved, but I’m not– I’m not the only woman that he ever loved. I’m not even the woman that he loved best. Do you know how that feels?

Jack: I do.

Gwen: Xander left me hanging for weeks, waiting to see if sarah would recover, and… this is no excuse, but I think, during those weeks… something inside me hardened. I just kept telling myself over and over and– and over again, “I cannot lose xander. I cannot.” But now it’s all my fault that he’s gone and I’ve lost him. And I don’t even know how I can live with myself.

[Door clicks open]

[Dramatic music]

Need long-lasting freshness?

Gwen: Xander, you’re here.

Xander: Yeah. Trust me, this isn’t a romantic rendezvous.

Gwen: How could it be? Go on, then. Let me have it, both barrels.

Xander: Not here to let you have it or to hear any excuses. I just– I have a question. What did you do with the real antidote?

Gwen: Right. You want me to help you get sarah back.

Xander: I wanted to give you a chance to act like a human being.

Gwen: Why start now?

Jack: Don’t do this. What nobody–especially xander doesn’t need right now is a tired, pathetic tough-guy act.

Xander: It’s all right, jack. I don’t care how she acts. I just– I just want an answer. Do you know where it is? Did you pour it down the sink, throw it away?

Gwen: No. I still have it.

Xander: Great. So… what’s it gonna take to get you to tell me where it is?

Abigail: I’ve been wondering the same thing. I mean… you know, gwen kept denying that she killed grandma even when I was threatening to drug her out of her ever-loving mind if she didn’t admit it.

Jennifer: Right, but she never wavered.

Abigail: No, she didn’T. So either she was lying back then, or she’s lying now. And I don’t know. Maybe I shouldn’t have told you what she said at the wedding, because the fact of the matter is, I’m still not sure if it’s true.

Nancy: I have to admit that a couple weeks ago, the idea of you getting dumped at the altar, well, it would’ve made me the happiest woman in the world. I would’ve said you got what you deserved.

Craig: Yeah, I suppose I did.

Nancy: No, no, craig, you’re a good man who just made mistakes. You’ve gone through a lot to get where you are today, and… sweetheart, you deserve to be happy.

Craig: So do you, nancy.

[Chuckles] You know, last night is really quite a blur to me, but I–

[Laughs] I think I remember you saying something about having met someone and going out on a date.

Nancy: Oh, yeah. We were supposed to go out for dinner last night, but he blew me off.

Craig: I’m sorry.

Nancy: [Sighs] Ain’t we a pair?

Craig: [Laughs]

Nancy: [Sighs]

Chad: Don’t be so melodramatic.

Leo: Melodramatic? I am your worst nightmare. You will rue the day you screwed matthew cooper, aka leo stark.

Chad: [Laughs] This is me struggling to keep a straight face.

Leo: I will leave you with a parting shot.

Aprs moi…

le déluge.

Sonny: The hell was that? We women are in the know about everything.

Jennifer: I understand her saying it was an accident, lying about that because she was trying to protect herself. But I don’t understand why she would lie about saying it was deliberate. It doesn’t make any sense.

Abigail: I don’t know. I don’t know, but it was the way that she said it, the words that she chose. So I don’t know, maybe after what I did to her at the wedding, she was just trying to torment me all over again or something.

Jennifer: Well, there’s only one way to find out.

Jack: Gwen, you just spent the last half hour telling me how much you love xander. Now look at him. He’s miserable. He’s suffering. For god’s sake, just tell him where the antidote is.

Gwen: You know, I was just thinking–

Jack: There’s nothing to think about. You have the chance to maybe, maybe undo the harm that you have done. For god’s sake, just tell him.

Gwen: I was just thinking that’s interesting, how you put that. It’s really interesting, ’cause you said, “what’s it gonna take to get you to tell me where it is?” It’s like it didn’t even occur to you to just ask me for it, because telling you would’ve been the right thing to do, yeah? But you know me well enough by now… to know that I don’t do anything unless there’s something in it for me. You don’t think there’s one good bone in my body, do you? You know, you’re right. There isn’T. So what’s it gonna take? Well, I know what I want. I want you back. Deal?

Xander: No.

Gwen: God, you hate me.

Xander: Yeah, that’s right.

Gwen: [Sighs] You hate me so much, you can’t even– you can’t even bloody lie to protect your precious sarah.

Jack: No, no, no. Don’t–gwen, please, don’t put the spike back in your arm.

Gwen: Well, sorry to put you through that, darling. Just needed to know where we stand.

Jack: God, no. No.

Gwen: You know, I will say, though, through all the lies… I did stay true to one thing. I did, I still, and I will always love you.

[Dramatic music]


[Sighs] I will do whatever I can to help you.

Sonny: [Laughs mockingly]

“Aprs moi, le déluge.” He doesn’t even speak french, you know? He just likes sounding like edith piaf.

Chad: Wasn’t piaf. It was louis xv. “After me, the deluge.”

Sonny: Oh, come on, look, he probably just spent all morning googling threats in french and then he found that. He’s been practicing it all morning, I’m sure. Oh.

Chad: What?

Sonny: Well, as far as threats go, it’s actually a pretty good one. A nihilistic expression of indifference forecasting ruination.

Chad: Oh, that’s great. That’s just what I need.

Sonny: What? You’re not worried, are you? Come on, he’s not the king of france. He’s leo.

Chad: Yeah, exactly. He’s leo, self-aggrandizing, petty, vindictive little drama queen.

Sonny: Okay, that’s actually a pretty good point.

Chad: And now that vindictive little drama queen is laser focused on me. I thought the whole point of bringing him down was to– was to get him out of our lives so we didn’t have to worry about him anymore.

Sonny: Okay, maybe I didn’t think this whole thing through.

Chad: God only knows what he’s gonna do next.

[Tablet beeps]

Sonny: I’m sorry, do you have this thing set to news alerts for news about you?

Chad: Yeah, it’s a work thing.

Sonny: But you’re not working. Okay, well, there is news, and it is about you.

Craig: [Sighs]

Nancy: So what are you gonna do next?

Craig: Oh, nancy, I have absolutely no idea.

Nancy: Been there, done that. Craig, let me ask you… are you absolutely sure that it’s over between you and leo?

Craig: Am I sure? Nancy, the guy– the guy was gonna swindle me out of everything I own. He wanted to marry me. He was already married to someone else.

Nancy: Yes, but, craig, he is the guy who, after 30-plus years, brought you out of the closet. Honey, that was life-changing for you.

Craig: Are you– are you sticking up for him?

Nancy: No. I’m thinking about you. Craig… he really got to you.

Craig: That is an understatement.


Nancy: But, craig, what if he’s telling the truth that he fell in love with you for real?

Craig: [Laughs] I cannot even believe you are saying this.

Nancy: Craig… I, more than anyone else, knows what it’s like being with you, you know, getting to know you, learning what kind of man you are. Sweetheart, that leads to love.

Craig: [Sighs]

Nancy: Who knows, craig? Maybe you got to him too.

[Knock at door]

Craig: That’s probably chloe. She’s been calling and texting all morning.

[Sighs] Leo. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Chad: What news?

Sonny: Brace yourself.

[Dramatic music]

Doo-doo-doo, doo-doo


Leo: Can we– oh, I didn’t realize you had company. Hello, nancy.

Nancy: Leo.

Leo: Can we have a moment alone?

Nancy: We were just in the middle of a conversation.

Leo: Please?

Nancy: Craig?

Craig: Thanks for coming over, talking. Means the world to me. But… I think I have to take care of this.

Nancy: [Sighs] Well… if you need backup, call me.

Craig: What the hell do you want?

Maggie: Did you see gwen?

Xander: Yeah, she– she had this stashed in our hotel room the entire time.

Maggie: [Gasps] She told you? Oh, thank god.

Xander: Yeah. Maybe we can save sarah yet.

Gwen: I suppose xander found the antidote by now.

Jack: You did the right thing.

Gwen: I know. Do you think it will work? Do you think sarah will be sarah again?

Jack: I don’t know. We’ll have to wait and see.

Gwen: I hope it does work. Truly, I really do. Again, I don’t expect you to believe me when I say this, but I am sorry for what I did to sarah.

Jennifer: So you’re sorry for what you did to sarah? Are you sorry for what you did to my mother? Are you sorry that you murdered her?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Steve: You know, I was thinking, maybe we should take a trip. Just the two of us. Somewhere romantic. Maybe we can go big sur, camp out under the stars, do some hiking.

Kayla: Yeah, for sure.

Steve: Or maybe we could go to siberia. In january. Where it’s 20 below zero every single day. You’ve always wanted to go to siberia.

Kayla: I know. Whatever you want. It’s fine.

Steve: All right. I’ll book the flights right away.

Kayla: Book the flights? What are you talking about?

Steve: Nothing, baby. And I understand why you’re not listening. You’re thinking about your job. Missing it.

Kayla: Yeah, I miss it. And I’m angry. [Scoffing laugh] The board wanted me to fire marlena and I refused, so they hire craig so that he will fire marlena. He refuses. So he still has his job, marlena still has her job, and I am still fired.

Steve: That about sums it up.

Kayla: You know, maybe i should’ve done it. Maybe i should’ve fired marlena.

[Phone rings]

[Phone beeps]

Marlena: Hi, belle. I’ve been worried about you. Are you and shawn working things out? Johnny was what?

Johnny: Chanel.

Chanel: Oh, look who it is. Aren’t you supposed to be in italy?

Johnny: No, I never went to italy.

Chanel: Oh, of course you lied because that’s what you do. Thank you for everything, but I–I gotta go.

Johnny: Chanel, wait. I need to talk to you.

Chanel: Why would I want to hear anything out of your hateful, lying mouth? You said enough on the phone the other night.

Johnny: No, no, I didn’T.

Chanel: You didn’t what?

Johnny: It wasn’t me on the phone. That wasn’t me.

Chanel: Okay, then who the hell was it?

Ej: It was satan.

Chanel: Satan? Really? Oh, come on. I get it. This is a stupid idea for your dumb movie. You know, the one that you bailed on the way you bail on everything else.

Ej: It’s the truth, chanel. My son hasn’t been himself for quite some time. He was possessed by the devil.

Chanel: Do you really expect me to believe that?

[Johnny thuds]

Rafe: So you’re saying that evan is working with allie, who is possessed by the devil?

Jake: Yeah. You know, she’s the one who knocked me out. She packed a helluva wallop, and I’ve felt that wallop before.

Ben: Rafe, I know this sounds crazy, man. But it’s the truth. After allie drugged me with that tea, she admitted it. She told me she was the devil, that the devil was after my child. And the next thing i knew, I was shackled up in the dimera crypt with johnny, and johnny confirmed what allie said.

Rafe: Okay. So if what you’re saying is true–

Ben: Then allie kidnapped ciara.

Allie: Ciara, I know you’re upset and you want to be with ben, but we can’t go back to your apartment, okay? Not with this evan guy on the loose.

Ciara: What if they caught him? Let’s call rafe. If they caught him, then we can go back.

Allie: If that’s the only way to convince you that you need to go to the cabin.

[Phone beeps and line trills]

Rafe: Hernandez.

Allie: Rafe, it’s allie.

Rafe: I’m glad you checked in. Are you at the cabin?

Allie: Almost, but ciara wanted me to call you and see if the cops have caught evan.

Rafe: Not yet.

Ciara: Rafe, I wanna go home.

Rafe: This is not an option, ciara. Do you hear me? Evan is out there. He’s dangerous, and he’s after you. So you and allie need to get to that cabin now.

Ciara: What about ben?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Tripp: We just need to get some fluids in you. You were seriously dehydrated.

[Monitor beeping] Okay, that should do it. I’ll come check in on you later.

[Monitor beeping]

Ej: You look better already.

Johnny: [Sighs]

Ej: Johnny, um, I just want you to know that–

[Monitor beeping]

Johnny: Dad, can chanel and i just have a moment alone? Please?

Ej: I’ll be right outside.

[Monitor beeping] Chanel.

Chanel: So… how are you feeling?

Johnny: Oh, like the world is an even scarier place than I ever thought.

Chanel: Yeah. I kind of feel that way, too, but I meant like, how are you physically? Are you okay?

Johnny: Eh, not too bad. Just got a–[Groans] Splitting headache, but, uh–

Chanel: So all that stuff that your dad said about you being possessed, is that really true?

Ben: My god, ciara and my baby are in legitimate danger from damn devil right now! We have to find her!

Rafe: We will, ben. We will, all right?

Ben: When evan was here, did he say anything at all about allie?

Jake: Oh, man. I’m sorry. I wish I could remember more. All I remember is when i recognized evan, that’s when i was knocked out from behind. Apparently, by allie. When I came to, evan was gone and rafe was here.

Ben: [Sighs] Jake, you are my only hope right now, brother, okay? I know you were knocked out cold when this happened, but when you started to come to, you must’ve overheard something, right?

Jake: Yeah. I mean, there may have been other voices, but who they were and what they were saying, I–I can’t remember.

Ben: Or maybe there’s a way for us to figure out how. A way for you to remember what those were. Not too long ago, dr. Evans, she hypnotized me. She helped me recover memories. Maybe she can do the same thing with you. You said you overheard some voices, right?

Jake: Yeah.

Jake: Well, then you probably know what the voices were. You just have them trapped in your subconscious. Rafe, what do you think?

Rafe: Anything that can help us find allie and ciara is worth a shot. Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

Steve: You should have fired marlena? Come on, sweetness. You don’t mean that.

Kayla: Of course I don’t mean it. I mean, the whole reason i refused to fire her is because, well, I mean, not only is she a great friend, but she’s an esteemed psychiatrist. She’s did not deserve that. I mean, really, it would’ve been a travesty.

Steve: But you didn’t deserve to be fired, either.

Kayla: No, I didn’t deserve it. I did the right thing and I’m being punished for it.

Steve: That’s right, sweetness. It’s unfair. It’s outrageous.

Kayla: Yeah.

Steve: ‘Cause not only are you a highly-respected physician, but you’ve made a big contribution to that hospital as chief of staff.

Kayla: Oh, I thought so. I hope so.

Steve: You did. I wish to hell there was something I could do about it. I go down there and talk to those idiots about the stupid decision they made.

Kayla: Well, I appreciate your willingness to do that, but I don’t see what the point would be because it wouldn’t make a difference.

Steve: [Softly] Yeah. Hey, what are we doing here? Come on. We came out to have some fun tonight, didn’t we? Huh?

Kayla: Mm, yeah.

Steve: What do you say we throw some darts?

Kayla: I don’t wanna throw darts. I just wanna sit here and wallow.

Steve: Ah, I can see that. But how about this? If you get a bull’s eye…

Kayla: Mm-hmm?

Steve: I will paint the master bathroom like you’ve been asking me to do.

Kayla: I have to win the contest for you do a simple, little family project?

Steve: You want the bathroom painted, or don’t you?

Kayla: Okay. Get the darts.

Chanel: So you were possessed since christmas?

Johnny: Yeah, pretty much. You remember how on new year’s eve, I wasn’t feeling that great?

Chanel: We had just got back from italy and you thought it was the flu or jet lag.

Johnny: Yeah, well… turns out it was none of the above. It was the devil taking control of my body.

Chanel: When allie and tripp came by, you said that you were feeling better. And then the four of us were gonna bring in the new year together. But you went upstairs and you missed the whole thing. And I had to go up to get you.

Johnny: Yeah. Yeah, it was weird. I just–I was getting ready. And then…

Chanel: And then what?

Johnny: I don’t know. That’s the last thing I remember.

Chanel: What about our wedding reception? When you announced in front of everybody that you wanted to divorce me and you totally humiliated me and you enjoyed it? Do you remember that?

Johnny: Oh, chanel. That wasn’t me. It never was.

Chanel: So all that stuff about not loving me anymore, about you saying in front of all of my friends and family, that marrying me was just a terrible mistake. You don’t remember that either?

Johnny: None of it. None of it, chanel. You believe me, don’t you?

Chanel: It’s hard to unhear the things you said to me that night, johnny. I had never been so hurt in my whole, entire life, so embarrassed, so angry.

Johnny: You had every right to be. But like I said, that wasn’t me, chanel. The only thing I remember about you and me being together was that you made me feel more loved than anyone else ever has. You made me laugh. You made me want to be a better person. Chanel, you are everything I ever wanted. So believe me when I say there is no way in hell I would’ve ever asked you for a divorce because I never for one second stopped loving you. I still haven’T.

Chanel: [Sobs softly]

Tripp: You’re serious? You’re telling me that allie is possessed and no one knows where she is?

Ej: I’m afraid so.

Tripp: Oh, my god.

Ej: I’m sorry to burden you with all this. I know it’s a lot to take in.

Tripp: Yeah, it is.

Ej: And now, I need to speak with marlena and inform her about what’s happening with her granddaughter.

Tripp: Right.

Ej: I just hope that she can help us track down allie.

Marlena: Oh, belle. Okay, honey. Thank you for letting me know. And just… just hang in there. I love you, too. I’ll see you at home. Bye.

[Exhales deeply]

[Door opens loudly]

Ej: Marlena, I have to speak with you. It’s urgent.

Marlena: Yes, I know. I just spoke with belle. She told me that she wasn’t the one who was possessed, that it was actually johnny. And now, dear god, it’s allie.

Ej: And no one knows where she is. We need to find her, marlena, and we need to tell samantha right now. My asthma felt anything but normal.

Chanel: You were so cruel that night. You broke my heart, johnny.

Johnny: I’m so sorry.

Chanel: I was so in love with you, so happy to be your wife and–and there we were at what was supposed to be a celebration of our marriage and you treated me like I was nothing to you. Like getting involved with me was just some terrible mistake. And I just remember when I left, I just kept hoping that it was just some nightmare, but no. No, it wasn’T. And if it hadn’t been for allie, I–

Johnny: It’s all right.

[Sniffles] I know you slept with her.

Chanel: You do?

Johnny: Yeah.

Chanel: I–I didn’t know where to turn, I didn’t know what to do. I was in so much pain and I felt like there was something wrong with me. And–and allie was there… to comfort me and to make me feel like it wasn’t my fault, that I was worthy of love.

Johnny: That’s all right. I get it. You don’t have to explain to me what you did with allie. Or tripp.

Chanel: Wait, tripp?

Kayla: Oh, honey, do you see that? Bull’s-eye! Bull’s-eye first try.

Steve: Ah, I saw that, yeah.

Kayla: Tripp, tripp you just missed it. I just destroyed your father in darts.

Steve: Oh, no that was just one throw.

Kayla: No, no, no. A win is a win.

Steve: The game is not over yet.

Kayla: Feels over to me. How about you? You wanna give it a shot with me?

Tripp: I’m not really in the mood right now. I’m sorry.

Kayla: Oh.

Steve: What’s the matter? What’s the matter?

Tripp: I’m just a little sad and worried and kind of freaked out to be honest, but never mind. I didn’t mean to ruin your night.

Kayla: No, no, tripp. You’re not ruining our night. What is it? Just talk to us. Is it allie? Are you still upset about what happened to her?

Tripp: That, too, I guess.

Steve: That too? What else happened?

Rafe: Ciara, there’s nothing you can do for ben.

Ciara: He needs me, rafe. I should be with him right now.

Rafe: I know you’re upset, but again, evan is dangerous. He wants revenge on you and your baby. So until we find him, you need to put your baby first.

Ciara: Rafe–

Rafe: It’s what ben would want. You know that. So you need to protect his child. You need to let allie take you to the cabin. Will you do that?

Allie: Rafe is right. If anything happened to you or to the baby–

Ciara: [Sighs softly] Okay, fine. For ben and for our son.

Rafe: Good girl. I know how hard this is, but it really is for the best. Like I said, I’ll send some uniforms to the cabin. Allie?

Allie: Yes?

Rafe: Thanks again for doing this, taking care of ciara.

Allie: I just wanna make sure that the baby and ciara are all right.

Rafe: Be safe.

Allie: We will.

[Phone beeps]

[Allie sighs] So what do you think?

Ciara: Okay, fine. Let’s go to the cabin.

[Ominous music]

Marlena: Sami, it’s important that I talk to you. Please, call me the moment you get this. Thanks.

Ej: [Sighs] I was certain she’d pick up.

Marlena: I’m afraid not, but wherever she and lucas have gone, they’ve got terrible cell reception.

Ej: Maybe we should get the police involved.

Marlena: You know, no. Not till I talk to john.

[Knock at door]

Ben: Dr. Evans, ej.

Ej: We were just talking about allie’s possession.

Ben: Allie’s not just possessed, we think it’s possible she may have kidnapped ciara.

Marlena: What? Kidnapped her?

Ben: The devil is still after our baby, dr. Evans.

Marlena: Oh, of course. He’d never give up. But you know what? We’re not giving up, either. Not until ciara and the baby are safe. Now, do you have any idea where allie might have taken ciara?

Ben: That’s where you come in.

Chanel: You know about me and tripp?

Johnny: Uh, I know that you guys got drunk together, that you were kissing at a bar. That you headed back to your place. Yeah.

Chanel: Yeah, yeah, that’s all true. But nothing happened.

Johnny: Really?

Chanel: Yeah. My mom, she said that we were “four sheets to the wind.”

[Both chuckle] And she knew that we were doing it for the wrong reason, so she basically refused to let us go to my room and she called tripp a cab and sent him home.

Johnny: Oh. I knew I liked paulina.

[Both chuckle]

Kayla: So now allie’s possessed?

Steve: Son, are you sure all this is true?

Tripp: Yeah. Ej just told me. Apparently, allie’s vanished. No one knows where she went.

Kayla: Marlena must be going out of her mind. She does know, right?

Tripp: Yeah. Ej was on his way to see her. And hopefully, they’ll find her allie and give her the help that she needs.

Steve: I think they’ll be able to. If marlena’s family was able to drive the devil out of her, I bet they’re gonna be able to help allie. You know what? There might just be a silver lining in all this.

Rafe: Okay, keep me posted. Yeah, and if your men do find allie, make sure they proceed with extreme caution. Okay.

Ej: Any word?

Rafe: No, nothing yet. We ran allie’s plates, but no one’s seen her.

Ej: Damn it. No leads at all?

Rafe: Well, jake may have witnessed something. He thinks he might have seen allie take ciara, so ben and I took him over to marlena’s to see if she can get him to remember some more.

Ej: I just left them in her office. She’s hypnotizing jake about the incident as we speak.

Marlena: I want you to understand that you’re perfectly safe in my office. No harm will come to you here. Do you understand?

Jake: I understand.

Marlena: Okay. I wanna go back a couple hours. You were at ben and ciara’s apartment waiting for ciara to come back. What happened?

Jake: There was a knock at the door.

Marlena: And did you answer it?

Jake: I did. The guy, evan, he had just escaped from prison. I asked him how he did it. He said that… that a new friend helped him.

Marlena: Did he give you the friend’s name?

Jake: I asked, but that’s when I was clobbered from behind.

Marlena: Okay. What is the next thing you remember?

Jake: I came to. Rafe was there.

Marlena: Good. Okay. I wanna move past your conscious memories into your subconscious, okay? About the time you were hit– tell me about that.

Jake: Like I said, I didn’t see who it was.

Marlena: That’s all right. You’re doing fine. I want you to block out all your other senses and just tell me what you hear.

Allie: Well, he wasn’t part of the plan, but since he’s here, he may as well make himself useful.

Jake: I hear a voice.

Marlena: You know who it was?

Jake: I do. It’s allie. It’s definitely allie.

Marlena: What is she saying?

Jake: I can’t understand.

Marlena: Okay. That’s all right. Was there any other voices you could hear?

Jake: There are, but they’re muffled. I can’t make out what they’re saying.

Ben: What about ciara? Was she there?

Marlena: Jake, I need you to focus. Can you hear ciara’s voice? Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Kayla: Silver lining? About being possessed? I mean, how can you even say that?

Steve: Okay, okay, maybe that didn’t come out quite right. All I meant was that if allie is really possessed by the devil, that means that she wasn’t in control of her faculties when she cheated on you.

Tripp: Are you saying the devil made her do it?

Steve: Yeah. So doesn’t that give you some comfort about your relationship?

Tripp: Actually, no. No, as much as I wish I could blame what happened between chanel and allie on devil, that was all allie.

Steve: How can you be sure?

Tripp: Because the night they slept together was the night johnny dumped chanel. Allie couldn’t have been possessed enth.

Kayla: Why not?

Tripp: Because johnny was.

Ej: Johnny is in there with chanel.

Rafe: Okay. Yeah, ben said that allie had him chained up in the dimera crypt. Things got a little crazy, huh? Andre showing up.

Ej: Um, my mother, bless her, alerted belle and me to the fact that johnny was possessed, that he wasn’t in italy. When she suggested that johnny was being held in the crypt, I just went to appease her. When we walked in and i saw andre choking the life out of johnny– if it hadn’t been for my mother, I would’ve lost my son tonight.

Rafe: I’m sorry, man. I’m really sorry. Well, thank god she did say something to you.

Ej: Yes, yes. Thank god for that. But what kind of father, what kind of person am I? For all these months, my son was in trouble, in a fight for his soul. And I had no idea.

Chanel: Yeah, tripp and i realized my mama was right, that sleeping together would’ve been stupid. And we were bonding as friends, so the next day, we were just happy that we could still be friends.

Johnny: I’m happy too.

[Both chuckle] I gotta say, when I saw you guys leave that bar, I kind of assumed the worst.

Chanel: How do you even know about that? Have you been following me?

Johnny: No. No, I would never do that. The devil showed me.

Chanel: What? What do you mean, the devil showed you? I don’t even know what that means. What?

Johnny: He chained me up in the dimera crypt and he did what he does best. He tortured me. He showed me a movie of you and tripp getting drunk, making out, leaving together. It just about drove me next level crazy.

Chanel: But you weren’t possessed in the crypt, right?

Johnny: Right.

Chanel: Okay, so how did the devil torture you and chain you up? Wouldn’t he need someone’s body to do that? If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Steve: Hold on now. Johnny was possessed?

Kayla: Well, you know, that would explain his strange behavior. I mean, breaking chanel’s heart, humiliating her the way he did, and then taking off to italy.

Tripp: And it turns out he never left. That was all a lie.

Kayla: What?

Steve: Where was he all this time?

Tripp: Seems that allie, aka the devil, had johnny chained up dimera crypt.

Steve: That’s where marlena kept john and susan when she was possessed.

Tripp: Ej just found him tonight.

Kayla: Is he all right?

Tripp: He brought him up to the hospital and I checked him over and he’s shaken up and weak, but he’s gonna be okay.

Rafe: Well, don’t be too hard on yourself, ej. You had no way to know what was really going on with johnny. None of us did.

Ej: I’m his father, rafe. I’m supposed to know. All those months, I saw the change in him. He was doing things so out of character for him, and not once did I think to ask what caused it. Not once.

Rafe: Maybe you didn’t notice because those things, those changes, they were happening gradually.

Ej: No, no. There was nothing gradual about it. At that so-called wedding reception, where he discarded his wife so unceremoniously, that was terribly sudden and extreme, obviously. And how did I react? I’m embarrassed to say that… I was oddly proud of him. Everyone, everyone was horrified by his behavior and yet i defended him. I thought he’d finally come to his senses, that he realized that chanel wasn’t a suitable partner for him. I was relieved that he finally accepted that dimera was his legacy, his birthright.

Rafe: Well, you dimeras have a certain code that I will never fully understand.

Ej: Code that johnny didn’t accept. For all those years that my son and I didn’t get along… I assumed it was because he looked to you as a role model more than he ever did to me.

Rafe: Well, it makes you feel any better, johnny was always his own man, even when he was a kid.

Ej: Mm. He was indeed. But I thought he finally grew into the heir I had always imagined. And now finding out that those qualities I thought he inherited from me were actually satan’s? And what does that say about me? That I was finally proud of my son when he wasn’t himself at all?

Marlena: Jake, can you hear ciara?

Ciara: Ben, wake up! Baby, please wake up! Baby, it’s me.

Jake: That’s her. I hear ciara.

Marlena: And what is she saying?

Jake: She’s–she’s upset. Crying. She’s yelling at ben to wake up.

Marlena: What then?

Jake: I don’t know.

Marlena: Jake, I want you to use all your senses now. Can you see anything? Can you feel anything?

Jake: I feel… a hand on my wrist.

Allie: I’m sorry, ciara, but ben’s gone.

Jake: It’s allie. She’S… she’s saying that ben’s gone.

[Groans] My head’s killing me.

Marlena: Okay. We’re almost done here. I’m gonna count to three. When I do, you’ll be wide awake. You’ll be relaxed and remember everything we talked about. One, two, three. Open your eyes. All right, how do you feel?

Jake: Kinda headache-Y.

Marlena: Oh, you may have had a slight concussion. We’ll get that checked out in the er.

Jake: Sorry, man. Sorry I don’t know where allie and ciara went.

Ben: It’s okay. At least we know now that they were together. But what I don’t get is that I wasn’t at the apartment, so why would she be yelling at me to wake up?

Allie: Home sweet home.

Ciara: I haven’t been here in years.

Allie: It’s been a while for me, too.

Ciara: My parents used to always bring me here as a kid. My dad would always go fishing and my mom would always make fun of him for not being able to catch anything. My dad is gone. I know ben is gone too.

Allie: Ciara, you’ve been through hell. How about you splash your face with water? You’ll feel better.

Ciara: [Scoffs] Feel better? Really? Allie, my husband is dead. I’m never gonna feel better again. Not without ben.

Allie: You need to think of your baby now. And ben would want you to do whatever you need to do to make sure this little guy comes into the world safe and sound, right?

[Light tense music]

Demon allie: Now with daddy out of the way, this will be the perfect place for my baby to be born. No matter who you are,

Steve: First, johnny what’s possessed and now allie?

Kayla: When does this end?

Steve: Son, this is a lot for you to take in. Let us get you home, okay?

Tripp: No. No, it’s okay. I’m just gonna go back to work, but thank you both for always being there.

Kayla: Of course. We’ll see you soon, all right? Love you, tripp.

Tripp: Love you guys too.

Steve: Buddy, hang in there. Okay?

Ej: If I were in a better mood, I’d appreciate the irony of all this. Me crying on your shoulder for comfort.

Rafe: Listen, we both care about johnny. And all that matters is that he’s gonna be okay, right? And besides, you still have a chance to do things differently.

Ej: All the time I’ve lost. I– you’re right. We have johnny back and that’s the best news.

Rafe: That’s right.

Ej: Mm-hmm.

Rafe: Listen, I gotta check in with the station, see if there’s any news on allie and ciara, okay?

Ej: Let me know if I can be of any help.

Rafe: I will.

Chanel: I don’t get it. There was no exorcism, right?

Johnny: No.

Chanel: Okay, so why did the devil leave your body? And where did he go when he did? What? What aren’t you telling me?

Johnny: Okay. Chanel, this is not gonna be easy to hear. When the devil left my body, he went into someone else.

Chanel: Who?

Johnny: The devil went into allie.

[Devil rasps]

[Chanel gasps softly]

Ben: Why would ciara be calling out to me if I wasn’t in the room? Why would she be crying? Jake, is there anything else that you remember?

Jake: It’s just that it seems like ciara and allie were really close to me. Like ciara was next to my face talking to me.

Ben: But you said she was calling you by my name. Why would she be calling you ben?

Marlena: And you said that you felt a hand on your wrist.

Jake: Yeah, yeah. It’s allie’S. It’s like she was taking my pulse. Oh, damn!

Marlena: What? What is it?

Jake: We know that devil can change forms, right?

Marlena: Yes.

Jake: Like when johnny was possessed, the devil made johnny look like me. But can the devil change other people’s forms too?

Marlena: Yes. In fact, he made tripp look like jan and he turned susan… he turned susan into a cat.

Jake: [Sighs] Then that’s it.

Ben: What?

Jake: Allie made me look like you. That’s why she was taking my pulse. That’s why ciara was crying.

Ben: Oh, my god. Ciara thinks I’m dead.

Allie: So feeling better?

Ciara: I wanna use your phone.

Allie: Why?

Ciara: Because I wanna call my mom.

Allie: Ciara, I don’t think that’s a good idea.

Ciara: Allie, I don’t care. I wanna call my mom. I need to hear my mom’s voice.

Allie: Of course you do. Whatever helps you through this. Oh, no. No, it says that there’s no service here. I’m afraid it’s just you and me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Allie: This is the second time I’ve had to knock this guy out.

Evan: Those concussions are gonna start adding up.

Allie: I knew I liked you. But this jake really is becoming a pain in my ass. And back in philly, he had so much promise.

Evan: What do we do with him?

Allie: Well, he wasn’t part of the plan, but since he’s here, he may as well make himself useful.

Susan: Elvis must be right. My psychic powers are on the fritz. I just need some rest.

[Soft music]

I feel it in my bones. And you must have jumped out of dr. Marlena evans and into my sweet johnny during the exorcism. And you can’t fool me. You can’t, not anymore.

Demon johnny: Oh. I guess you’re not as dumb as you look.

Susan: It’s you. Beelzebub, I knew it, I knew it.

Demon johnny: Congratulations, susie Q. You figured it out. So now what are you gonna do about it?

Susan: Oh, oh sweet dear baby jesus. Oh, my grandbaby johnny. Oh, he’s gone and gotten himself possessed by the devil.

Belle: Did susan say why she thinks johnny’s in danger?

Ej: She kept insisting that he didn’t write the letter he left behind before he went to italy.

Belle: Well, did she happen to say who she thought wrote it?

Ej: She insists my brother, andre, did, which would be quite the accomplishment given that andre’s been dead for years.

Andre: You may have saved johnny roman’s life, but now I’m going to end yours.

Johnny: If you kill ben, you’ll be making a big mistake.

Andre: And why is that?

Ciara: Well, that was a bust. Marlena said that she hasn’t heard from– evan.

Evan: Hey, ciara. I was just catching up with an old friend.

Ciara: Ben.

Evan: You can scream if you want to; he won’t hear you.

Ciara: What did you do to him?

Evan: What does it look like? I killed your husband.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Belle: Well, susan’s your mom, and you obviously know her better than I do, but what if she’s right?

Ej: You think andre could have written johnny’s letter?

Belle: Well, I’m just saying that the reports around andre’s death tend to be exaggerated.

Ej: At first, she was convinced that tony did it. When I said that was impossible, she latched onto the idea that it was andre.

Belle: So she’s just grasping at straws?

Ej: All this talk of demonic possession seems to have gotten to her. Hopefully, a good night’s rest will get her sorted out.

Susan: I don’t understand. Why can’t I remember any of this? Heavenly father, I come to you as humbly as I know how. Now, if you can see fit to bring back your servant susan’s memory, well, then maybe I can save my elvis’s young ‘un from the hateful powers of the evil one. Okay. Well, in the name of the father, and the son, and the holy spirit. You’re not gonna get away with this. You are not gonna get away with this because you know what? You can slam doors to my face, but I am gonna go straight downstairs, and I am gonna tell elvis everything.

Demon johnny: You know what?

Susan: You’re gonna let me go?

[Dramatic music]

Demon johnny: And what are you gonna tell him?

Susan: I’m going to tell him that I’m leaving salem.

Demon johnny: When?

Susan: Tonight.

Demon johnny: Excellent, why?

Susan: Because roger needs me.

Demon johnny: He sure does. Well, I’m gonna help you pack your bags.

Susan: Okey dokey. You’re such a sweet boy.

Demon johnny: Yeah.

Susan: Ah, that’s why I was all fuzzy in the head. Oh, that mean, mean, mean, old devil. He touched my forehead, that’s what he did. And he made me forget he possessed my johnny.

Andre: Well, isn’t this touching? You made a little friend here in the family crypt. But unfortunately, your kinship is about to come to a short end.

Johnny: Why would you wanna strangle ben weston? The guy’s a stone cold killer. Don’t tell me you and your boss couldn’t use somebody like him.

Andre: I have my orders.

Johnny: He’s the necktie killer. You were the salem slasher. Think about all the damage you two could do in this town, the world. Or maybe the great andre dimera isn’t allowed to think for himself anymore. Maybe he’s just been turned into the devil’s little errand boy.

Tripp: Mmm, this is like the best sandwich I’ve ever had.

Chanel: Mm, please, please. Not sandwich, okay? We call it a ham and cheese croissant, monsieur.

Tripp: Mais oui. I stand corrected. And you can make these things?

Chanel: It is an awesome power, but I try to keep it under control.

Tripp: I mean, you are a wiz, dupree. Is that weird me calling you that? I know that’s what allie used to call you.

Chanel: No, it’s my last name; anyone can call me that. And besides, I am done letting things that remind me of her get to me.

Tripp: You know what, me too actually. You know, for the longest time, it was hard for me to even hear her name. Looking at pictures of her was the worst.

Chanel: But it’s better now?

Tripp: Well, I don’t look at pictures of her anymore. So that helps. And as for hearing her name, no, I’m totally okay with it now.

Chanel: Me too. Allie horton has caused us both enough misery, right? It’s time for it to stop, yeah?

Tripp: Definitely.

Ciara: No, no, no, no, no. This is not real. This is not real, it can’t be.

Evan: I hate to break it to you, babe, but it’s totally real.

Ciara: Evan, you are supposed to be in prison.

Evan: I bet that made you and hubby’s day, sending me to statesville. I was locked up, and the necktie killer was playing house with the brady princess. Well, that’s all over now.

Ciara: Ben? Ben, wake up. Baby, please wake up. Baby, it’s me. Ben. Ben, please wake up. Please wake up.

Evan: You’re wasting your breath. Guy’s dead, and you’re next.

Ciara: Ben, ben. Allie?

Allie: What happened to ben? Who was that guy with the knife?

Ciara: He’s orpheus’s son. He’s an escaped convict.

Allie: Why did he have a knife on you?

Ciara: I will explain later, but right now we have to help ben. He tried to strangle him. Oh, my god, allie, he’s so cold. Oh, my god, please let him be–

Allie: Ciara, I’M…

Ciara: Please let him be okay.

Allie: I’m so sorry, but he doesn’t have a pulse.

Ciara: Don’t say that, no. Oh, my god. Please, god, please, god.

Allie: This is out of god’s hands now. I’m sorry ciara, but ben’s gone.

Ciara: No.

Andre: I’d watched my tongue if I were you. You may have been my father’s favorite when he was alive, but he’s dead, and I’m undead.

Johnny: Okay, I didn’t mean any disrespect, andre. I just thought I should remind you of what a lethal duo the two of you could be. Your black feathers, his necktie, great visual. Could be bigger than “halloween kills,” you know, with me writing and directing, of course. So what do you say?

Andre: Oh, please. I’m sorry, old boy. I’m not interested.

Belle: When was the last time you talked to johnny?

Ej: We haven’t spoken since before I was sent to statesville.

Belle: Really? Wow, is that unusual for you two to be out of touch that long?

Ej: You’re appalled, aren’t you?

Belle: Appalled? No, why would I be? Ej, I know that your relationship with johnny is complicated.

Ej: And that’s just a euphemistic way of saying I’m a terrible father.

Belle: What? Wow, no, I’m sorry I triggered you like that. All I did was ask if you talked to johnny recently.

Ej: I know, I know. It wasn’t about your question. It was my guilt. I often feel that my son is a stranger to me. Maybe it’s because he reminds me so much of samantha. I see her in his smile, in his feistiness, if you will. And because her and i are now estranged, it makes me feel all the more distanced from my son. But I won’t give up. I hope to earn my son’s respect. Eventually. Anyways, I’ve contacted him numerous times. No response.

Belle: So the only proof you have that johnny’s okay is a letter that susan’s convinced he didn’t write?

Ej: I know my mother’s premonitions have been accurate at times, but this one was so vague I–

Susan: Oh, oh, my god! I know why, I know why! It wasn’t a premonition. It was a memory. Johnny isn’t just in trouble. Elvis, remember when I told you it was the work of the devil?

Ej: Yes.

Susan: Okay, I was wrong. I was wrong, wrong, wrong. It’s not the work of the devil. It is him, oh! Our johnny is the devil himself.

Ciara: You’re wrong, allie. Ben always comes back to me. He always comes back. What are you doing just sitting there–go call an ambulance or something.

Allie: Ciara, ciara. It wouldn’t help.

Ciara: Fine. Then I’ll do it myself.

Allie: Ciara, ciara. That guy is starting to wake up. We need to get out of here now.

Ciara: I’m not leaving him. Allie, I can’t leave him.

Allie: Listen, listen, listen, listen, listen. You need to think about yourself right now. You need to take care of yourself and your baby. When I came in, that guy had a knife on you. You need to let me get you out of here, okay? Come on, it’s okay.

Ciara: Ben, ben, I love you.

[Soft music]

Ej: What are you saying, mother?

Susan: Belle, I’m so sorry that I believed that you became satan’s vessel.

Belle: No, you did see a 666 on the back of my coat.

Susan: Yes, because that is what the devil wanted me to see. I mean, he set you up.

Belle: You know, the only other person that was here that day was johnny.

Susan: Right, right. And he was at dr. Marlena evans’ exorcism too, and when the devil left her body that night–

Ej: He took over johnny’s?

Belle: Yeah.

Ej: That’s ridiculous.

Belle: No, ej, wait. You know what, that’s not ridiculous because if what susan is saying is true, then that would explain why I don’t have the gaps in my memory that my mom did.

Susan: That’s right, that’s right, that’s right because satan wasn’t using you to do his evil bidding. It was johnny.

Johnny: Uncle andre, you’re not thinking this through.

Andre: Will you please shut up and let me get on with this?

Johnny: Andre, listen to me. Wasn’t it bad enough growing up in stefano’s shadow? And now what, you’re doing the devil’s dirty work too? Come on. You were the one that made kids in this town scared of the dark for like 30 years.

Andre: 40 years, if you don’t mind.

Johnny: Just take a minute, a minute and think about how you’ll be remembered. If you force ben weston to go on a killing spree with you, they’ll be telling stories about andre dimera for the next hundred years. Forget about jack the ripper.

Andre: It’s tedious, forever banging on his what, five victims?

Johnny: Hey, you could put him away. Why would you strangle ben weston when you could make him wanna kill again?

[Dramatic music]

Chanel: Interesting, isn’t it, how we’ve bonded over being hurt by the same person?

Tripp: We do have that in common. But I do admit that it does feel really good to be able to vent to someone who totally gets it.

Chanel: Yeah, it does. It really helps.

Tripp: Yeah, and you know what, I think I’m going to hit the gym before I go on duty.

Chanel: Oh, you’re gonna exercise so soon after eating?

Tripp: Who’s the doctor here? And besides, I need to work off the 12 million calories that was in that croissant.

Chanel: Come on. It wasn’t that big.

Tripp: Ah, it was great. But next time, lunch is on me.

[Cell phone rings] Hey, rafe, what’s up?

Rafe: Hey, can you possibly come over to nicole’s and watch henry till she gets back?

Tripp: Where’s allie?

Rafe: Nicole got a text, said she had something important to deal with.

Tripp: More important than her kid?

Rafe: Yeah, I hear you, but I’ve gotta get to work. I got a case I gotta handle myself.

Tripp: Okay. Yeah, I’ll be right there. So much for the gym.

Chanel: Why did you ask him about allie?

Rafe: He’s alone with henry, and he has to leave. He said that allie texted nicole some lame excuse about something to coming up.

Chanel: That’s exactly what she did the night before she broke up with me.

Tripp: Yeah, something bad enough she treated you like crap. Now she’s neglecting her son?

Ciara: This is a mistake. Allie, we should have stayed. You’re not an expert in taking pulses. What if ben is alive, and he’s just in shock, and he needs my help? He needs me. Turn this car around, allie. We’re going back.

Allie: We cannot go back. Okay, ben’s killer is still on the loose, and he wants you too. Ben would want me to get you as far away from that maniac as possible.

Evan: [Groaning] Crazy bitch must have turned on me. Really wanted to kill wes and the wife myself. I feel cheated. I really should get out of here before the cops show up.

[Tense music]

Belle: Okay, so the devil wiped out your memory of realizing that he was in johnny?

Susan: Yes, yes. Clean as a whistle.

Ej: So let me get this straight, the devil possessed johnny, then convinced him that italy was lovely this time of year.

Susan: Yeah, but johnny isn’t in italy any more than you and I are, elvis. And he didn’t write that dang letter. Johnny is still here in salem. I know it.

Belle: Yeah, then we better find him.

Susan: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm, but I read the letter. I read the letter, and it was all highfalutin.

Ej: Hm, I noticed that myself. It started out, “my dearest family.” And he referred to himself as a dilettante.

Susan: But johnny doesn’t talk that way, and you know it. Sounds more like who? Andre dimera.

Ej: Mother, andre’s dead.

Susan: I love you elvis, but right now you are really getting on my nerves. Who stays dead in this town, huh?

Belle: Okay, let’s suppose you’re right. Where do we start looking?

Susan: Wh–ooh! Prince of darkness has a favorite spot. Oh, and it’s where he tormented john black and myself, and it is right out back.

Ej: You’re saying johnny’s been in the family crypt all this time?

Susan: Yes, let’s go. Let’s go, come on. Okay, this is a freezer, not a time capsule.

Belle: Okay, she’s right, ej. My dad told me all about the crypt. You have to go check it out. Listen, I’ll stay here. I’ll call eric. Because if johnny is possessed, there’s gonna have to be an exorcism.

Ej: Ugh, I can’t believe we’re talking like this. I thought this whole devil possession thing was some sort of mass hysteria or something.

Susan: Elvis, honey, I keep telling you it is for real.

Ej: [Sighs] Then we’ll go to the crypt.

Susan: Finally! Oh, let’s get a move on. Come on, come on. It’s gonna be us who’s gonna have to stop that devil before he ruins any more lives. All right, come on, whoo!

Ciara: Where are you going? We should be headed towards the police station. We should be looking out for christian and sending help for ben.

Allie: You’re absolutely right, okay. I’ll call rafe.

[Dramatic music]

Hey, rafe, it’s allie. I’m here with ciara.

Rafe: Thank god, is she okay?

Allie: She’s fine. Yeah, but she said that christian maddox broke into her apartment and hit ben over the head.

Rafe: I already know. I’m in ciara’s apartment right now.

Ciara: Please tell me you got there in time to help him.

Rafe: The emts have already been here. I’m so sorry, ciara.

Ciara: Oh, my god.

Rafe: It was too late.

Ciara: Oh, my god, ben.

Allie: Should we come back to the apartment?

Rafe: Not with maddox on the loose. Take ciara somewhere safe until we catch him.

Allie: Do you have any ideas on somewhere safe?

Rafe: How about the horton cabin? I’ll send a couple uniforms out there to watch the place.

Allie: Okay, rafe. Whatever you say. It’s gonna be okay.

Ciara: Nothing’s ever gonna be okay.

Allie: You have to think of your baby now. I’m gonna take good care of you two for ben.

Ciara: Oh, my god, ben.

Rafe: Jake, jake?

Jake: Yeah.

Rafe: Hey, who did this to you?

Jake: I don’t know.

Rafe: Hey, okay. Can you tell me what happened?

Jake: I was here…

Rafe: Jake!

Jake: There was a knock at the door. I answered it, and i recognized–I think it’s the guy who locked up ciara.

Rafe: Christian maddox? He escaped from prison tonight. Was it him?

Jake: No, it was somebody else. Oh, my head hurts.

Rafe: Hey, where are ben and ciara, huh? Does he have them? Jake, jake. Hey, hey, hey, jake. Stay with me, hey, hey, jake.

Andre: I can see why you got along well with those hollywood types. You learned the art of the elevator pitch.

Johnny: Does that mean you decided not to kill ben?

Andre: Yes, it does. But I did promise the master a kill. So I’m afraid your dreams of movie stardom are coming to an end. But do say ciao to nonno for me, will you?

Ben: Let him go! Let him go!

Ej: Get your bloody hands off my son!

Andre: Oh, what’s happening?

Ej: Johnny, are you all right?

Johnny: Thank god you’re here.

Ben: He was trying to kill him.

Andre: It’s me, it’s tony. I’ve been possessed by the devil.

Ej: It’s really you?

[Dramatic music]

Mother, what the hell have you done?

Susan: It was not tony dimera. That was his evil doppelganger, andre.

Johnny: [Coughs] Stuff. We love stuff.

Susan: Whew. I knew I was taking a kind of chance. But if that was tony dimera, he’d be laying there in a pool of blood. Lucky for us, it was just a demon from the fiery pits of hell. Ashes to ashes, crappy dog.

Ej: You saved my son’s life. I don’t know how to thank you.

Johnny: Can somebody get me out of these chains?

Ben: Yeah, me too please. I need to go get ciara.

Ej: Of course. Keys are right here. I’m so sorry I didn’t figure this out earlier. Thank god you’re still alive.

Johnny: I was pretty damn scared.

Ej: Yeah.

Susan: Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh. Hi, ben, hi, ben. It’s really good to see you.

Ben: It is really good to see you too, susan. Very good to see you, but could you please work a little bit faster? I need to get the hell out of here.

Ej: Do you have the energy to walk?

Johnny: I’m gonna have to have it; I gotta find chanel.

Susan: Oh, oh, oh, oh, no. You are not gonna go anywhere until we know that you are not still possessed.

Johnny: Grandma, if I was satan, how would I have been chained up down here all this time?

Susan: And if the devil really wanted us to know that, he might just say that to us.

Ben: He’s telling the truth. Johnny’s not possessed anymore. The devil’s moved on.

Ej: Who now?

Ciara: Wait, this doesn’t make sense.

Allie: Life doesn’t make sense sometimes.

Ciara: No, allie. If ben were dead, if ben were really dead, I would feel it inside of me. I know I would. That is how connected we are.

Allie: Well, you’re probably just in shock, okay? Can’t feel anything yet. How about you just lie back, close your eyes.

Ciara: Close my eyes, really?

Allie: All this stress, it’s not good for the baby, ciara. We’ll be at the cabin soon, and then you can lie down.

Ciara: Yeah, what difference would that make?

Allie: You’ll feel better.

Ciara: Not without ben. Allie, if he really is gone, I’m never gonna feel good again.

Tripp: Thanks for covering for me, buddy. I owe you. Yeah, I’ll be there soon as I can. Thanks. Hey, henry asleep?

Chanel: Out like a light. “Goodnight moon” works every time.

Tripp: Thank you for coming with me. Henry hasn’t seen me in a while, and I was afraid he might be scared of me.

Chanel: He’s the sweetest little boy.

Tripp: He is. I miss him so much.

Chanel: Yeah, well, he definitely wasn’t scared of you. He smiled so big when he saw you.

Tripp: That did make me feel good.

Chanel: You know, I can’t believe that allie said she was too busy to watch her own little boy.

Tripp: Yeah, it seems totally unlike her, right? Chanel, do you have any idea what’s going on with her? I’m starting to worry that, you know, things have gotten to be too much for her.

Chanel: How do you mean?

Tripp: Everything she’s been through. Like realizing she’d been raped. Having henry at such a young age. Her parents taking off. What happened between her and me.

Chanel: Me and johnny didn’t make things any easier.

Tripp: The first time I met the guy, he wanted to know how I liked being with someone who kisses other girls. And he said that in front of allie.

Chanel: And then he set his sights on me, and I fell for it. It was all pretty messy. Thank god my mom stopped us from sleeping together, or things would’ve gotten a lot messier.

Tripp: Sex when drunk has a way of not working out.

Chanel: Yeah, falling into bed would’ve ruined our chances of ever being you know, friends.

[Cell phone beeps] Is that allie?

Tripp: No, it’s nicole. Holly’s dance class is over, and they’re on their way here. I can drop you at your car on the way to the hospital if you want.

Chanel: Actually, would you mind if I went with you? I’d like to visit lani.

Tripp: Not at all. I’d like the company. Especially since it’s yours.

Ej: The devil went from you into your sister?

Johnny: Yeah. She locked me up in here.

Susan: Ah, poor allie.

Ben: Susan, could you please get me out of these damn things. Please.

Susan: You know the key is not turning.

Johnny: Look, we need to get allie some help, and i need to see chanel.

Ej: And you will, but you’re going to the hospital first.

Susan: And same with you, big fella–oh, my goodness. I mean, you look pretty beat up yourself.

Ben: I don’t, and we do not have time to worry about me. Last night, allie came to my house, and she gave me something that knocked me out. Next thing I knew, I woke up here, and who the hell knows what she did to ciara. I just have to find her before it’s too late.

Ciara: Ben.

Allie: [Humming]

Ciara: Please stop that.

Allie: I know you don’t believe this, but I am going to take such good care of you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Belle: [Scoffs] I don’t understand. You’re supposed to be in prison.

Jan: Shawn came to my rescue. He convinced them to let me out of there.

[Groans] And then, uh, he asked me to move in with him.

Shawn: No, that is not how it went down.

Belle: Oh, really? How did it go down?

Shawn: Jan has a medical condition which requires her to be in bed rest for the duration of her pregnancy.

Belle: So? She can’t rest in her bed at statesville?

Jan: It’s not very restful there. Or safe.

Shawn: Look, they had her in the infirmary and I spoke to the warden and they said they couldn’t guarantee that she was gonna get the proper care that she needed.

Belle: Okay, so the warden agreed to let her out?

Shawn: He and the judge. They agreed to put her on house arrest.

Belle: Our house?

Jan: I can’t tell you how grateful I am to be here. It was so stressful to be pregnant and in prison. I mean, that place, it’s just– it’s full of dangerous, unsavory characters.

Allie: I don’t know if you’ve heard, but ben and ciara are having a baby.

Evan: Yeah. Before he got out, clyde mentioned it about a hundred times.

Allie: Proud grandpa, huh?

Evan: [Chuckles] Sure.

Allie: Well, that baby boy is very important to me. And as you might imagine, it’s also important to ben. But our plans for that kid’s future don’t really… align.

Ej: Johnny, it’s your father. Again, sorry to disrupt your journey of self-discovery, but I need you to sign back over my dimera shares. Also… I miss you, son, and I would like to hear from you, so please call me back.

[Soft tense music]

[Banging on door]

Johnny: Do you hear that? It’s–somebody’s coming! We’re saved!

[Wood splinters]

Andre: Hello, boys. Now… what’s with all the commotion?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ciara: Ben? Ben, are you home? Where is your father, baby? He’s not at the garage like he said he’d be.

[Knock at door]

Jake: Hey.

Ciara: Jake. [Sighs]

Jake: Is ben here? I need to talk to you guys.

Ciara: No, actually. Ben is not here.

Jake: You know where he is?

Ciara: I do not. I just woke up this morning, and he was gone.

Jake: Gone?

Ciara: Gone. I’ve been looking all over for him, jake. I’ve been looking everywhere, but it’s like– it’s like he disappeared into thin air. I don’t know. I’m starting to think something really bad has happened to him.

Ben: Tony! Hey! Thank god you’re here. You gotta get us out of these chains.

Johnny: Ben.

Ben: Look, do you have maybe the keys or–or a hacksaw or something?

Johnny: Save your breath.

Ben: [Stutters] Ciara needs me right now. The devil is after her and our baby, and she needs me right now, tony.

Johnny: He’s not gonna set us free.

Ben: What? Why not?

Johnny: Because that’s not tony.

Ben: What are you talking about? I know your uncle when I see him.

Andre: I am his uncle… but regretfully, not the one you think.

Ben: Wait, what? What are you saying?

Andre: Andre dimera at your service. If you haven’t tried dawn powerwash dish spray,

Belle: Why would you do this? Why would you move jan spears into our home?

Shawn: It’s the only way that I could get her out of there. I promised that she was gonna be living in a house with a cop, so I could keep a close eye on her.

Jan: Not that I can get into any trouble with this thing on. And, you know, bed rest.

Belle: So you didn’t think to run this by me before moving her in here?

Shawn: Belle, you haven’t been living here.

Belle: I didn’t move out! I went to stay with my parents!

Shawn: Yeah, but for how long? I mean, last time we spoke, you said you didn’t want to come home.

Belle: Well, obviously, I changed my mind.

Shawn: Really? Wait, that’s why you’re back?

Belle: Eric convinced me to come home and try and work things out, but obviously, that was a huge mistake.

Ej: Yes, I’m well aware I’m no longer in charge of the company, but I’m still a dimera, and my son is on the board, and I need your help to track him down. You’re the head of security, for god’s sake.

[Scoffs] You know what? Someday soon, I’m going to be ceo again, and when that happens, the first thing I’m going to do is fire your disloyal ass and make sure you never work again!

Susan: Oh! Elvis, jr! My goodness, you need to do something about that anger! It’s gonna eat you up!

Ej: Mother, when did you get back into town?

Susan: Oh, just now, just now. Okay, you know what? You need to direct me to our sweet johnny right now.

Ej: He’s not here.

Susan: Well, where is he?

Ej: Why do you need to know? What’s the urgency?

Susan: Ugh! The urgency is is that I’m very, very, very worried. Oh, elvis! My beloved grandbaby is–

[Gasps] He’s in danger!

Ben: You can’t be andre.

Andre: Why not?

Ben: Because andre dimera’s dead. Abigail smashed him in his head with an urn.

Andre: Oh, yes, yes. Abigail can be quite feisty when she’s not herself. But then, of course, you would know that, being on the receiving end of one of her… episodes, huh?

Ben: [Scoffs] I don’t get it. What–what– what is he, like a ghost?

Johnny: I–I think– I think he’s been summoned.

Ben: Summoned? Summoned by the devil?

Johnny: To do his dirty work.

Andre: Hey. A job’s a job.

Johnny: He visited me once before. He used my blood and forged my signature with it on a note which made it seem like I left town.

Andre: [Chuckles] And it worked like a charm. Now everybody thinks that my little nephew here has gone to europe to find himself. I just love all these dark powers at my disposal.

Ben: So why are you here this time? What the hell does the devil want with us now?

Ciara: So allie found this note on the floor.

Jake: Did you go to the garage?

Ciara: Yeah. He didn’t show up there at all. I even asked clyde if he’s seen him, but no. I don’t suppose you’ve heard from him?

Jake: No, I’m sorry.

Ciara: [Sighs] What if he got into a car accident on his way to work? Last night, allie came over to drop off this tea that’s supposed to help me sleep, and it worked. It knocked me completely out. And ben also had some, so what if he was driving to work this morning, and he fell asleep behind the wheel, and he’s hurt, lying in a ditch somewhere?

Jake: Who are you calling?

Ciara: I’m calling the police.

Evan: I don’t get it. What do you want with ciara’s baby?

Allie: Does it matter?

Evan: I’m a father. As much as I hate ben and ciara, I would never do anything to harm a child.

Allie: Oh, no, no. Trust me. I am very invested in the well-being of baby boy weston. That’s why I want to get rid of ben. He’d screw everything up.

Evan: So you think ben will be a bad influence on his kid?

Allie: Something like that. In any case, I need him removed from the picture.

Evan: And that’s where I come in.

Allie: You better.

Evan: So just to be clear… you’re asking me to kill ben weston? Time. It’s life’s most precious commodity,

Shawn: Belle, please don’t go. Please?

Belle: You think I’m gonna stick around here and play “three’s company” with the two of you?

Shawn: There is no two of us.

Jan: And technically, there’s already three, if you count the baby, which I guess makes you mr. Roper. Or mr. Furley, if you prefer.

Shawn: Okay, can you please stop talking?

Jan: Just trying to help.

Shawn: You’re not helping. You’re doing the exact opposite.

Belle: Well, of course she’s not helping because she is loving every second of this. She wants you all to herself, shawn, and you know what? As far as I’m concerned, that’s fine by me.

Allie: Am I asking you to kill ben weston? Interesting question.

Evan: Is that what you want?

Allie: Well, would be kinda fun watching him die. But it would be much more satisfying to torment him for the rest of his life.

Evan: How we gonna do that?

Allie: Remember that little prank you played on ciara when you were holding her captive?

Evan: Yeah, where i made her think ben died.

Allie: Yeah, that. Fake newspaper article and everything. Very inventive.

Evan: Thank you, but she didn’t buy it.

Allie: It’s because you didn’t have a partner to sell it. This time, we will be much more convincing.

Evan: What are you, like a photoshop ninja or something?

Allie: Not exactly. In order to fool ciara, you need to be much more up close and personal.

Evan: It’s gonna be a bit difficult, seeing as I’m stuck in this hellhole.

Allie: Oh. I thought you understood, silly goose. I’m breaking you out.

Ciara: Okay, great. Thank you, rafe. I really appreciate it. Love you. Bye.

Jake: What did he say?

Ciara: Well, um, technically, it is too early to file a missing person’s report, but as a favor to me, he’s gonna get the cops on it.

Jake: That’s good news, right? Hopefully, you’ll hear something soon.

Ciara: Mm-hmm, yeah, yeah. Hopefully.

Jake: All right, I’m gonna get out of your hair.

Ciara: Wait, wait, no please. Please don’t go. Please stay.

Jake: Sure. Yeah.

Ciara: I’m gonna go crazy sitting here alone, waiting for him. And didn’t you say that you had something that you wanted to talk about with me and ben?

Jake: Yeah, that can wait.

Ciara: I know, but you said it was really important. And I can use a distraction. Please, jake.

Jake: All right. It’s gonna sound a little batty, though.

Ciara: Okay.

Jake: So… you remember how we thought that johnny dimera was possessed by the devil?

Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yeah. And what about it?

Jake: I’m beginning to think maybe we were right.

Ej: Why do you think johnny’s in trouble?

Susan: I had a premonition! Oh, baby, it was a strong one!

Ej: Were there any specifics with this premonition?

Susan: Johnny, he was in peril, and, uh–mortal peril. Okay, when was the last time you set your peepers on him?

Ej: In person? It’s been months.

Susan: Wh–

Ej: By the time I was released from statesville, he was gone.

Susan: Gone? Gone where?

Ej: Italy.

Susan: Italy? What–he–he– he left the country without saying goodbye?

Ej: He needed to get away to find himself. At least, that’s what the note said.

Susan: Well, let me see that note.

[Sighs] Oh! Oh, no, no, no. No!

Ej: What is it?

Susan: Oh, oh!

Ej: What?

Susan: Elvis, elvis, you’ve been deceived! Your son did not write this! Oh!

Ben: I’m not writing a letter trying to trick ciara into thinking that I’ve left town. She wouldn’t believe it if I did, anyway.

Andre: Perhaps not. But she certainly fell for that note you left her this morning.

Ben: What note?

Andre: Well, the contents are irrelevant. What’s important is that we were able to buy time.

Johnny: Time? Time for what?

Andre: Well, to put all the pieces in place. And it’s all coming together, my little nephew.

Ben: Look, andre. I know you have your orders or whatever, but you have to let us go, okay? I need to protect my wife and my unborn baby. I will do anything.

Andre: Anything?

Ben: Yes!

Andre: Well, I’m so happy you said that, because I’m here to offer you a deal. I will grant you your freedom on one condition.

Ben: Name it.

Andre: That you kill my nephew, johnny roman.

[Distressing music]

If your moderate to severe crohn’s disease

Ej: I know my own son’s handwriting, and that’s johnny’s signature.

Susan: All right, you know what, elvis? I may not be a fancy-pants handwriting expert, but I assure you johnny is not the author of this here letter.

Ej: How can you tell?

Susan: Well, I guess I’m getting just one of those unnatural vibrations from it.

Ej: You’re getting a vibration from the letter?

Susan: Yes, I am! Yes, yes! You know what? [Sighs] Ah! Someone else definitely wrote this, someone–someone with a very different energy, a very dark energy.

Ej: Who?

Susan: Oh! Oh, good lord, just hold on, hold on. I’m seeing his face. I’m seeing his face. Okay, it’s your brother, it’s your brother. It’s your brother!

Ej: Which one?

Susan: It’s tony dimera!

Ej: I seriously doubt that, mother. Tony’s had his hands full dealing with his wife and sarah horton.

Susan: I know what I saw!

Ej: It just doesn’t make any sense. Why would tony fake a letter from johnny?

Susan: That is a very good question, elvis, all right? Let me–let me–okay, okay.

[Sighs and sniffs]

Ej: [Groans softly]

Susan: [Sniffing deeply] Oops, oops!

Ej: What do you mean, oops?

Susan: I mean–I mean it’s the right face, wrong brother. The scoundrel who faked this letter is andre dimera.

Ej: Okay, mother, that’s impossible. Andre is dead.

Susan: Okay, well, maybe somebody forgot to tell him.


Andre: So do we have a deal?

Ben: I’m not killing anyone.

Andre: Oh. Well, it’s not like you haven’t murdered before. Besides, this time, it’s for a good cause.

Johnny: [Scoffs] A good cause?

Andre: Yes, a chance for ben to reunite with his wife and his unborn child.

Ben: Andre, I am sure that there is some other way.

Johnny: Yeah, maybe something that doesn’t result in my death?

Andre: Well, that’s the deal, and the terms are not negotiable.

Johnny: Why does the devil want me dead?

Andre: Because he likes to clean up after himself, and he’s so over you. But as far as ben is concerned, he’s just getting started.

Ben: I won’t be a murderer. Not again.

Andre: Oh, oh, I can see your wheels turning. I can feel it inside you. Yes, yes, you’re thinking there may be a loophole somewhere where you can save johnny roman here and perhaps take your own life, but we’ve already dealt with that. You see, it’s now called the susan banks clause.

Ben: This is insane.

Andre: But this… is where we’re at. Yes, you want to be with ciara. You just have to kill my nephew here in this family vault. And the weapon, well, that’s up to you.

Johnny: If the devil wants me dead so bad, why doesn’t he just kill me himself?

Andre: Because he can’t! Your twin sister–she puts up too much of a fight.

Johnny: Good for allie.

Andre: Oh, yes, good for allie. Good for her to postpone the inevitable. I can’t wait. It’ll be so entertaining to watch ben end your life.

Ben: I’m not doing it.

Johnny: [Sighs] Oh, thank you, ben.

Andre: Well, let’s not be too hasty. How about a taste of freedom?

[Eerie music]

Ben: [Shouts]

Andre: I said a taste of freedom. I’m not an idiot. Hmm. You should save your energy, ben, because you’re gonna need it to finish off johnny roman.

Ben: [Groans]

Andre: I believe this is your weapon of choice.

Ben: No.

Andre: No? All you have to do is wrap it around his scrawny, little neck and squeeze. And then, you’ll be free to go home to your precious ciara.

[Dramatic music]

Ciara: Johnny wasn’t possessed by the devil. Belle was. I mean, you know that. Her own parents performed her exorcism.

Jake: No, right, I know, but it’s just, I’ve been having these…. these flashes.

Ciara: What kind of flashes?

Jake: Well, they’re kind of like dreams, but they’re happening more and more, and so now I’m starting to think that they’re memories.

Ciara: Okay. Memories of what, exactly?

Jake: Johnny with these creepy, glowing eyes.

Ciara: Um, are you sure that’s what you saw?

Jake: Yeah, it was the day that johnny and gabi pulled that whole hostile takeover at dimera, that whole power move, all right? Johnny and I ended up fighting. I ended up on the ground, and now, I’m starting to piece together how I got there. And are you sure this is a real memory?

Jake: I don’t know why my brain would make it up.

Ciara: Um, well, I know you don’t like johnny. He and gabi pulled some really shady stuff with you, so maybe this is your subconscious trying to come up with a reason to make him a bad guy.

Jake: Or maybe my nephew was possessed, and if he was, then that means the devil’s still here.

Evan: You’re going to break me out?

Allie: Well, we need to convince ciara you offed her husband. Bit hard to do that when you’re stuck in here.

Evan: Okay, let’s say you can get me out of here. Why would ciara believe me, especially after I already told her the same lie?

Allie: Don’t worry about that; I’ll take care of it. Are you in?

Evan: Sure, I guess. How are we gonna pull it off?

Allie: Well, don’t let this perky, blonde exterior fool you. I have a lot of tricks up my sleeve.

Evan: You never told me your name. Who are you?

Allie: I go by a lot of names, and I am someone more powerful than you could ever imagine.

Evan: What does that mean?

Allie: I’ll show you.

Evan: What the hell?

Demon allie: Now you’re catching on.

Trelegy for copd.

Shawn: Look can we please talk about this in private?

Belle: No, there’s no point. You made your choice.

Shawn: My choice? I choose you, belle. I always choose you.

Belle: It doesn’t feel that way.

Shawn: I had to do this for the baby, but you and I– we’re married, we love each other, and we’re gonna make this work.

Belle: How?

Shawn: Look, I don’t know yet.

Belle: Jan spears is living in our house, shawn! Jan spears!

Jan: You don’t have to keep saying my name like that.

Shawn: Stay out of it, all right? This is only until the baby is born, and she’s gonna be on bed rest the entire time.

Belle: And you think we can trust her? She tried to kill me more than once.

Jan: It’s unhealthy to hold on to grudges.

Shawn: Okay, stop, jan. Seriously, stop talking.

Belle: You know what? I can’t live like this. I’m out.

Shawn: Belle…


[Uneasy music]

Susan: I’m telling you, elvis, that this letter was written by the devious and postmortem hand of andre dimera and that he must have done something to our sweet johnny.

Ej: I think your intuition is malfunctioning, mother. Andre is dead and buried.

Susan: Yeah, but the devil owns his immortal soul.

Ej: You think the devil brought him back?

Susan: Yeah, brought him back to hurt johnny.

Ej: Johnny is fine. He is in italy. I assure you, he’s fine.

Susan: Okay. Then you just–you get him on the phone. I wanna hear his voice.

Ej: [Sighs]

Susan: You–you can’t do it, can you?

Ej: I left him a message right before you arrived. He’ll call back soon.

Susan: Okay, but what if he can’t? What if the zombie andre has kidnapped him to do lucifer’s bidding?

Ej: Now he’s a zombie?

Susan: Oh, undead, demonic. I don’t know what you call it. All I know is, my premonition–

Ej: Mother, mother, please. You’re getting yourself worked up over nothing.

Susan: Oh, my goodness, the welfare of my grand-baby’s soul is not nothing, elvis!

Ej: Why don’t you go lie down in one of the guest rooms, and when johnny returns my call, I’ll come get you? Okay?

Susan: But I–

Ej: Mother, please, johnny is fine, you’ll see. Please, for me. Please. Johnny is fine, I promise you. Come on. Thank you.

[Uneasy warbling music]

Jake: So johnny’s in italy.

Ciara: Yeah, and apparently, he left without saying goodbye to anyone.

Jake: Interesting.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

[Cell phone rings]

Jake: Is that rafe?

Ciara: Uh, no. It’s a spam call. It is killing me, sitting around, waiting here for answers.

Jake: Can you think of anybody else who might know where ben is?

Ciara: I called marlena and left her a message, but she hasn’t gotten back to me either.

Jake: Well, then, maybe that’s it. Maybe he’s in a session with marlena, and that’s why neither of them are answering.

Ciara: Hmm. That is entirely possible. Um… I’m gonna go to the hospital to check on that.

Jake: Yeah.

Ciara: Yeah.

Jake: Want me to stay here in case he comes back?

Ciara: Yeah. Yeah, jake, that would be amazing. Thank you.

Jake: You got it. Ciara.

Ciara: Yeah?

Jake: I’m sure he’s okay.

[Gentle piano music]

Andre: Come on, ben. I know that killer instinct is inside you, especially protecting ciara and your unborn son.

Ben: No. I am not that person anymore, and I can’t kill johnny.

Andre: Why not? Unlike all those innocent women that you strangled. I mean, look at him. So arrogant, selfish, just like a true dimera. And some say that he deserves it.

Johnny: Hey, I’m right here.

Andre: No one’s gonna miss you.

Johnny: Ben, don’t listen to him. You really think he’s gonna let you go, even if you do kill me?

Andre: Hey, I’ve got a guarantee from the big man himself downstairs, and a deal’s a deal, even when it comes to the prince of darkness.

Johnny: Don’t trust him, ben.

Andre: Ben, time is running out. It’s now or never. Ciara’s life depends on it.

Your mission:

Shawn: Look, belle, I know that you were upset, and you have every right to be, but we can work this out, so please, please call me, all right?

Jan: Sorry, shawn.

Shawn: You know what? No, you’re not, jan. She’s right. You are loving every single bit of this. You know what? I’m gonna go track her down.

Jan: I think you should take the hint.

Shawn: What?

Jan: I’m just saying, belle’s upset right now. If you don’t give her some space, you’re only gonna make it worse.

Shawn: Okay, house rule number one: You do not get to weigh in on my marriage, ever. You got it?

Jan: Fine. I was just trying to give you the female perspective. Let’s talk about something more pleasant.

Shawn: Like what?

Jan: How about pie?

Shawn: Pie?

Jan: Baby’s craving it. Would you get us some? I was thinking cherry. No, apple. No, let’s stick with the cherry. Apple–I don’t know. Would you get us both?

Ej: I’m sorry, tony. I don’t even know why I asked. Of course you didn’t write that letter. Yes, I understand andre is dead, but you know how my mother gets. Look, um, good luck with anna, and let me know if I can be of any help. Oh, that’s not a very good sign.

Belle: Oh, well, I’m just getting started.

Ej: Let me guess. Jan spears?

Belle: [Laughs] Ding, ding, ding!

Ej: You said that she contacted shawn from prison. Did he go visit her?

Belle: Oh, yeah, he did, but it’ll be his last trip to statesville.

Ej: Well, that’s good, right?

Belle: [Laughs] No, it’s not, because instead, he moved that crazy bitch into my house.

Susan: Hmm.

[Ominous music]

Johnny: What do you mean, I’m not johnny?

Susan: I mean you are that mean, mean, mean devil himself, and as god is my witness, I am gonna put an end to your reign of terror once and for all!

[Sighs] But I was wrong. I mean, it was belle black that was possessed, not johnny. Right?

Johnny: Ben, look at me. Look at me, ben! Look! Hey. This is not you. Andre is trying to corrupt your soul. That’s why he’s doing this!

Andre: Oh, let’s be honest. Your soul’s already corrupted. We’re all lost causes.

Johnny: That’s not true. Ben, my grandma marlena has told me how much progress you’ve made. You have a good heart. Okay? After all she’s done for you, you can’t repay her by killing her grandson.

Andre: Oh. You gotta act now, ben. Your wife and your child are in danger.

Ben: From the devil.

Andre: From a mortal, and if you don’t get to them soon, you’re gonna lose them forever.

Ben: Ciara…

Johnny: Ben, he’s lying!

Andre: Ben, you’ve gotta do this, for ciara… or for your child.

[Dramatic music]

Johnny: Ben, ben… please. Please don’t do this. Please don’t do this. Ben… mm, mm…

Ben: I won’t do this. I can’t do this. I can’t do this. I can’T. I can’t do this because of my love for ciara. I can’t because she’s the one who saved me from–from this, from you.

Andre: Oh, well. That’s unfortunate, isn’t it?

[Disquieting music]

[Knock at door]

Jake: Can I help you?

Evan: Hi. Is ciara home?

Jake: No, she just left.

Evan: That’s okay. I’ll wait.

Jake: I don’t know who you are, man, but you’re gonna have to wait somewhere else.

Evan: Ciara won’t mind. She and I are old friends.

Jake: Wait a minute. I do know you.

Evan: I doubt it, pal.

Jake: No, I know you. You’re that punk who kept ciara locked up. How the hell’d you get out of prison?

Evan: Let’s just say a new friend helped me out.

Jake: What friend?

Evan: That friend.

[Dramatic music]

No matter who you are,

Allie: This is the second time I’ve had to knock this guy out cold.

Evan: Those concussions are gonna start adding up.

Allie: [Laughs] I knew i liked you. This jake is really becoming a pain in my ass. And back in philly, he had so much promise.

Evan: What are we gonna do with him?

Allie: Well, he wasn’t part of the plan, but since he’s here, he may as well make himself useful.

[Dramatic music]

Jan: Mmm. This really hits the spot. Thank you, shawn. Listen, I know I’m not supposed to talk about her…

Shawn: Yeah, please do not.

Jan: All I’ll say is, I think it’s best that belle did not stay.

Shawn: Oh, really? And here I thought you wanted her around.

Jan: Joking aside, shawn, I think we both know that stress is bad for the baby, and that’s all we need to be focusing on right now. I mean, nothing is more important than our sweet little bundle of joy.

[Tense music]

Belle: Mm. You know, the worst part is, is I was ready to move home. I really wanted to make it work.

Ej: I’m so sorry. Jan certainly knows how to get what she wants.

Belle: And after all these years, shawn still falls for it. I just don’t understand him.

Ej: Look, I’m not saying he did the right thing by bringing her into your home, but as a father, I get why you would move heaven and earth to protect your child.

Belle: Is something going on with johnny?

Ej: I haven’t heard from him since he left, and I would do anything to know that he was safe and sound.

Belle: Do you have some reason to believe he’s not?

Ej: [Snorts] It’s probably nothing, but mother’s got it into her head that he could be in danger.

Susan: Elvis was right. My psychic powers are on the fritz. Know what? I just need some rest.

[Sighs] Okay.

[Sighs] I feel it in my bones, and you– you must have jumped out of dr. Marlena evans and into my sweet johnny during the exorcism, and you can’t fool me! You can’t, not anymore!

Johnny: [Laughs] Oh…

Demon johnny: I guess you’re not as dumb as you look.

Susan: Oh! It’s you! Beelzebub! I knew it! I knew it!

Demon johnny: Congratulations, susie Q. You figured it out. So now what are you gonna do about it?

Susan: Oh! Oh, sweet dear baby jesus! Oh…

Ben: Dear god, I know I don’t have the right to ask anything of you. Please protect ciara and our baby.

Andre: Huh. Huh. You could have done that yourself, but you made the wrong decision. And since you refuse to kill my nephew, johnny roman, the devil has no need for you either!

Johnny: What are you saying?

Andre: Since you decided to save johnny roman’s life… I’m about to end yours!


Ciara: Oh, that was a bust. Marlena says that she hasn’t– evan.

Evan: Hey, ciara. I’m just catching up with an old friend.

Ciara: Ben!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Chanel: Oh, what did I do?

Tripp: You got your mind off johnny and allie?

Chanel: Johnny and allie who?

[Both laugh]

[Knock at door] Oh, god. [Sighs] Tripp. I was just thinking about you.

Demon allie: And done. Thank you for your cooperation, benny. And I didn’t even wake you from your slumber. Just had to pop by and get this before I head out to take care of business.

Johnny: What are you doing?

Demon allie: Oh, nothing for you to worry your pretty little head about, bro. If I were you, I’d be more worried about what’s going on with chanel and tripp. Spoiler alert: From what I saw, it looks like they had a pretty rockin’ time last night. Sucks to be you. Sucks to be anyone but me, if we’re being honest.

Johnny: Ben. Ben! Ben!

Ben: What? Ahh! What the hell is going on? What the– where am I?

Ciara: Ben? Ben? Huh. You know, I normally don’t like herbal teas but this one is really delicious, thank you. And it’s already working. I’m already feeling kind of sleepy.

Allie: Well, that’s what it’s supposed to do.

Ciara: Actually, do you mind if I go to bed now?

Allie: No, not at all.

Ben: Well, okay. All right. That’s the good stuff. Let’s go, sleepy girl.

Ciara: Mmm.

Shawn: So what do you want me to do, jan?

Jan: You’re an officer of the law. Pull some strings. Call in some favors. Get me released.

Shawn: They’re not gonna let nut job with your record out of prison just because you’re pregnant. Even if it is high-risk.

Jan: There are options other than letting me free.

Shawn: Okay, like what?

Jan: House arrest?

Shawn: Okay, whose house?

Jan: Yours.

Shawn: No, you cannot be serious.

Jan: Oh, I’m super serious, shawn. I want you to take me home with you.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Eric: Belle?

Belle: Eric! Oh, my gosh, a little birdie told me you were back town.

Eric: That little birdie wouldn’t happen to be mom, would it?

Belle: Oh, well, she’s really excited you’re back. And so am I. Gosh, it is so good to see you.

Eric: Yeah, it’s good to see you, too. Especially this morning.

Belle: Oh? What? What’s the matter?

Eric: Nicole. She’s having breakfast with rafe inside. They’re together now. You probably already knew that.

Belle: Yeah, I did. So, I guess that’s why they’re in there and you’re out here.

Eric: Yeah. Something like that.

Belle: Well, at least I get to spend more time with my brother this way!

Eric: How can I say no to that? Listen, I wanted to say that I’m sorry. I’m sorry I wasn’t here for you before when–

Belle: When I was possessed.

Shawn: Look, jan, you know that this is not a simple request. I mean, you committed some serious crimes.

Jan: Allegedly.

Shawn: Not allegedly. You were a kidnapper and a blackmailer. I mean, you tried to kill people. Do you really think a sane judge judge is gonna release you out into the world to do more damage?

Jan: But I wouldn’t be released out into the world. I’d be released into the custody of my baby-daddy.

Shawn: Do not call me that.

Jan: I’m just saying if everyone knows that I’m living with you, they’ll know you’ll take extra special good care of me. And our baby. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Jan: Shawn, you are a detective. You were the acting police commissioner. If anyone can guarantee that I won’t be a danger to the public, it’s you.

Shawn: Yeah, sorry, it’s not gonna happen. You’re exactly where you belong, jan.

Jan: Didn’t you hear what the doctor said? I need to be on total bed rest.

Shawn: Okay, well, then just stay in bed.

Jan: And how is that possible when every prisoner has to be up by six, in the cafeteria by seven, and back to our cells for inspection by eight?

Shawn: Well, I’m sure the prison will make some accommodations for you.

Jan: Yeah, have you seen this place? Do they seem accommodating?

Shawn: Well, then I’ll talk to the warden. I’ll see if you can stay here in the infirmary until the baby’s born.

Jan: Are you kidding? Shawn, do you know how many diseases are flying around this place? It’s like a cough factory. Besides, I’m not exactly everyone’s favorite prisoner.

Shawn: Now, that’s a big surprise.

Jan: I’m just saying I don’t trust these creeps to take care of my baby. Sooner or later, they’ll find a way to get me back into my cell. Do you really want to take that kind of a chance with your child’s life?

Belle: Yeah, it all happened really fast and, honestly, it’s still a blur. I’m just grateful that dad knew what to do.

Eric: Yeah. He had to learn the hard way.

Belle: Yeah. And I did a lot of terrible things. I tried to break up chad and abigail and gabi and jake–

Eric: You are not responsible for any of that.

Belle: Well, I feel like I was. Although, it’s so strange knowing that I did all of those things, but not remembering it, it–

Eric: It’s all gone?

Belle: Well, one minute I was downstairs at the dimera mansion talking to johnny and the next minute I’m upstairs tied to a bed and everyone’s telling me I’ve been possessed.

Eric: Mom said after she was possessed by the devil that there were like these gaps in her memory, like she lost chunks of time.

Belle: Right. And that’s what’s so strange because I didn’t lose any time, at all.

Tripp: So, are you as hungover as I am?

Chanel: I don’t know. Do you feel like your tongue grew three sizes overnight?

Tripp: No. I woke up feeling like someone was hammering on my head but from the inside.

Chanel: Oh, god, same.

Tripp: Yeah. Well, lucky for you, I come bearing dr. Tripp johnson’s surefire hangover cure.

Chanel: Oh, yes, I can definitely use a coffee.

Tripp: No, no. This coffee’s actually for me. This is for you.

Chanel: Oh, what’s in there?

Tripp: It’s an electrolyte replacement drink. So, it’s vitamin-infused water, blended with a banana for potassium, raspberries for vitamin c, kefir, ginseng juice.

Chanel: Okay, I’d rather have the coffee.

Tripp: No, you wouldn’T. The coffee dehydrates you.

Chanel: Okay, but you’re drinking it and you just said that you were just as hungover as I am.

Tripp: I was until I downed one of these amazing electrolyte drinks and then I was a totally new person, ready to face the world.

Chanel: Hmm. Just like that.

Tripp: Trust me, this is years of experience talking.

Chanel: Oh, they taught you hangover cures at medical school?

Tripp: No, not in class, but more like trial and error. It was a fair amount of post-exam celebrating which involved a fair amount of over-indulging. So, drink it. Trust me, I promise after you down this, you’ll be rarin’ to go and you’ll forget last night ever even happened.

Ben: So the devil is in allie?

Johnny: Yeah, he is now.

Ben: But jake was right. You were possessed that entire time?

Johnny: Since christmas.

Ben: And you don’t remember any of it at all?

Johnny: No, I don’T. I don’t remember anything from my grandmother’s exorcism until the moment the devil left me.

Ben: Well, how the hell did you get free?

Johnny: Allie saved me. She was talking to me, she was trying to reach out, begging me to fight, to resist the devil. And I did, I fought. I was winning. And then he just– I don’t know, he must’ve jumped from me into my sister.

Ben: And she’s the one who chained us both up?

Johnny: Yeah, she’s hella strong.

Ben: What would the devil want with her?

Johnny: Man, I– I don’t think he’s interested in allie at all. You see, I think–

Ben: What? Say it, johnny!

Johnny: I think he wants what he’s always wanted.

Ben: Ciara. And our baby.

Ciara: Were these here last night? Why can’t I remember?

[Knock at door] Allie.

Allie: Good morning, cuz. I figured you and ben would still be tried, so I brought breakfast. I hope you guys are hungry.

Ciara: Well, that is very sweet of you. Thank you, but ben is not here.

Allie: He isn’t?

Ciara: Yeah, I don’t know where he is. He wasn’t here when I woke up.

Allie: Oh. That’s weird.

Ciara: Yeah, I mean, the last thing I remember was him taking me to bed last night after we all drank the tea. And– do you–do you know what happened after that?

Allie: Last night? Let’s see. Like you said, you were pretty tired, so ben put you to bed. I hung out for a little while. Ben and I had some tea, ourselves. We talked about parenting. And then I headed out pretty soon after.

Ciara: And that’s it?

Allie: Yeah. He was pretty tired so I let him rest.

Ciara: That’s weird because I don’t remember him coming to bed.

Allie: Well, you were really wiped.

Ciara: Yeah, but I am a very light sleeper. I always wake up when he comes into bed, and I always wake up when he gets out of bed. I’m gonna call him.

Allie: Good idea.

[Line ringing]


Ciara: Straight to voicemail. Hm.

Johnny: Hey, dude, you’re gonna hurt yourself. Ben, you’re gonna hurt yourself!

Ben: I have to get out of here. I have to get to ciara.

Johnny: Look, man, I get it, believe me. These chains are unbreakable. I’ve tried. My wrists are rubbed raw.

Ben: He’s after my wife and my baby!

Johnny: Yeah, and before that, he went after the woman I loved and he used me to do it.

Ben: What, chanel? You’re talking about how you dumped her at a party?

Johnny: That wasn’t me! It was him! And the devil wanted to make it stick so he called her as me and taunted her about it. And now she hates me. And I don’t blame her. I mean, I hurt her in the worst way possible. Now she’s off doing god knows what with tripp.

Ben: How do you know that?

Johnny: Well, allie– the devil, gave me my own private screening. They were drinking together at a bar.

Ben: Chanel was probably drowning her sorrows.

Johnny: No, they were doing a hell of a lot more than that. For all I know, they spent the night together.

Tripp: Feel better?

Chanel: I don’t think it works that fast.

Tripp: Just keep hydrating.

Chanel: Is this your new side hustle, hangover cures, peddling them?

Tripp: Well, first of all, since I paid for everything, no, it’s not much of a hustle. Actually, I came here to apologize.

Chanel: Apologize for what?

Tripp: Last night.

Chanel: Why? What did you do?

Tripp: Well, I got drunk and kissed you. And then I took you home hoping to get you into bed.

Chanel: Well, if you haven’t forgotten, I was drunk too and I’m pretty sure that I was down to party. And, if I recall correctly, I’m the one who had the idea. So, yeah, I think the only reason we didn’t go through with it was because my mom stopped us.

Tripp: Yeah. And I’m actually kind of glad she did.

Chanel: Gee, thanks.

Tripp: I didn’t mean it like that, okay? I meant that if we had gone through with it, we’d be doing it for all the wrong reasons.

Chanel: Revenge, right? Making johnny and allie pay for how much they hurt us.

Tripp: Yeah, and you know what the sad thing is? I’m not even sure they’d care.

Eric: You just told me that you don’t remember any of the things you did while you were possessed?

Belle: That’s true. I only know about any of it because of what people told me. I don’t feel like I lost my memory.

Eric: I’m sorry, I just don’t understand.

Belle: Okay. The way mom described it, she would wake up and days and weeks would passed, right?

Eric: Right. And that didn’t happen to you?

Belle: No. Between christmas and the time that I woke up tied to that bed in the dimera mansion, except for the last few hours, I remember all of it. At least I think I do.

Eric: Well, maybe when you were first possessed the devil didn’t have control yet.

Belle: But there were times when the devil would have to had control. To do the damage he did. Like when he took ej’s form or jake’s form.

Eric: Using bodies.

Belle: I mean, that’s what I was told. But it’s not like I came to and realized I was missing time or I didn’t know where I was.

Eric: I mean, maybe it was trying to smooth out the gaps while you weren’t even aware it was happening.

Belle: I mean, anything’s possible I guess.

Eric: Well, anyway, the only thing that matters is that you’re home now and safe. Just hope that you can put that terrible chapter behind you and move on with your life.

Belle: Unfortunately, as much as I wish I could pretend none of this happened and I could just move on, like you said, the devil just did so much damage. He hurt so many people. And this is damage that can’t just be forgotten or repaired that easily. Especially the relationships he wrecked. None more so than my own marriage.

Jan: I’m not delusional, shawn.

Shawn: Well, that’s debatable.

Jan: I can see how you’re looking at me. And I know how you feel about me. I can live with that.

Shawn: Really? Because that’s news to me.

Jan: No matter how much may dislike me, you would never take that out on an innocent child. Especially not your innocent child. That’s not who you are. You’re a good man, shawn. You always have been. Which is why I know that no matter how this child was conceived, you would never want any harm to come to him or her. And for me, well, knowing that I’m going to be a mother, something in me just– it just switched. Maybe because for the first time in my life, somebody’s depending on me. So I feel like I have purpose. And I want to do everything that I can to protect this baby, to care for it, to love it. So if something were to happen in here, I don’t think I could live with that. Could you? Shawn? Can you please talk to the warden? I’m not asking you to do it for me, but for my baby. Our baby.

Eric: Mom told me.

Belle: Mm-hmm. Did she also tell you that I’m staying with her and dad?

Eric: How does shawn feel about that?

Belle: I mean, he wants me to come home, of course.

Eric: Are you going to?

Belle: Well, I was thinking about it, but then we started discussing it and I just– oh, god.

Eric: What?

Belle: Jan called. So I left. I’m sure he went to the prison to go talk to her.

Eric: Listen, I know this is the last thing that you want to hear right now, but–

Belle: I know what you’re gonna say that shawn’s baby and so I should just accept it because I love him.

Eric: That’s not what I was going to say. I was going to say that if shawn has to be there for jan because of the baby, it’s not because he loves her. Or he ever will. Belle, he loves you.

Belle: I know that. But jan is the mother of his child, which means she’s going to be in our lives forever. How do I deal with that? Does a marriage survive that?

Ben: Allie was in our apartment last night. She brought over some kind of tea that she told ciara helped her sleep while she was pregnant. So ciara drank some of it. She got really tired. I took her off to bed. I came back, I started talking to allie, and–

Johnny: Did you drink the tea?

Ben: She drugged the both of us, johnny.

Johnny: Yeah, were you were pretty out of it when she brought you in here.

Ben: Damn it, man! Ciara must’ve woken up in our bed this morning wondering where the hell I am and where the hell I could’ve gone.

Ciara: Hey, baby, please, please call me back once you get this. Okay, love you. Why is he not answering?

Allie: I’m sure he’s just busy. You know, working under a car.

Ciara: I hope so. I think I’m going to go to the garage to check on him. Thank you so much for stopping by.

Allie: Oh, what’s this?

Ciara: Where did you find that?

Allie: It must’ve fallen on the floor.

Ciara: Is it from ben?

Allie: “Woke up early. Didn’t want to wake you. Have a good time with allie. Love, ben.” So sweet.

Ciara: How did he know you were going to be here this morning?

Allie: I told him last night that I was going to be checking on you this morning. Oh, which reminds me, I have something else for you.

Your mission:

Ciara: Allie, you did not have to bring me anything.

Allie: No, it is no big deal. What do you think?

Ciara: That is really cute.

Allie: It was henry’S. Can you believe how small this is? I mean, it’s hard to imagine that he fit into this at one point.

Ciara: I love it. Thank you.

Allie: I have so many clothes that he’s outgrown. And don’t feel pressured to take them all, but you could start with a full wardrobe. And I also have toys and bottles and they’re all yours.

Ciara: That is very thoughtful of you.

Allie: But I should’ve asked first, right? I mean, you don’t want all these hand-me-downs. You probably want to shop for your little boy yourself.

Ciara: No, no, this is– these are great.

Allie: No, I’ve made it all awkward.

Ciara: You have not made it awkward. Please.

Allie: I think it’s just my pregnancy was overwhelming and really scary. I wasn’t even ready to be a mom, I didn’t want to be a mom at first. So I think seeing you and ben, seeing your joy, your hopefulness, it gives me a taste of what I didn’t have. I guess I just want to be a part of it.

Ciara: Allie, you are so sweet. And I love that you want to be a part of it. And ben and I will be more than grateful for you to join us in this journey. Come here. Oh.

Chanel: If we’re being honest, I’m the one who should be apologizing to you.

Tripp: For what?

Chanel: Oh, I don’t know, stealing your girlfriend.

Tripp: Ah. That. Yeah.

Chanel: I was supposed to be your friend and I kind of broke the bro code.

Tripp: I’m not really sure “bro code” applies to you.

Chanel: Yeah, but still, it didn’t matter how I felt about allie. She was your girlfriend.

Tripp: Followed your heart, right?

Chanel: Yeah, but I’m so sorry for the way that that happened. I mean, that night when allie and I were together for the first time, I was hurting because of what johnny did to me. And I’m ashamed to say, I wasn’t thinking about you and how hurt you would be. And tripp, that was so wrong. I know that now. And I really, really am sorry.

Tripp: Look, at the end of the day, allie’s the one who cheated on me. But thank you for saying that. It means a lot.

Belle: Everyone keeps telling me it’s not shawn’s fault that he betrayed me. But he liked to me. For months, he had every opportunity to tell me that he slept with jan and he kept that from me.

Eric: You had every right to be angry.

Belle: But I should get over it, right?

Eric: I don’t presume to tell you what to do, belle. But from my experience, with nicole, there’s no looking back. I just wish I– I wish I’d been more forgiving. You know, I shouldn’t have judged her so harshly. It cost me to lose her and lose my marriage. And I don’t want that to happen for you.

Belle: I don’t want to lose shawn. I just don’t know if I’m ready to go home yet.

Eric: You can’t avoid him forever.

Belle: So how do I know when I’m ready?

Eric: I can’t give you that, but I can tell you this. You can’t find the answers by avoiding your husband. The only way that you’re gonna make it through this mess is to go home and work this out together.

Jan: Well?

Shawn: I spoke to the warden.

Jan: And?

Shawn: And he’s not exactly thrilled about letting a dangerous prisoner out into the world.

Jan: Am I really dangerous anymore?

Shawn: Look, ultimately a decision like this would be left to the judge who did your sentencing. But–

Jan: But?

Shawn: Look, apparently there is extreme overcrowding here.

Jan: Tell me about it. I had to wait an hour to take a shower with a clogged drain the other day.

Shawn: Well, so, if you were to be released temporarily into my custody, it wouldn’t only be helping your baby–

Jan: Our baby.

Shawn: It would be solving the warden’s problem as well. And since I– since I guaranteed that I would be responsible for you–

Jan: Does that mean yes?

Shawn: The judge signed off, it’s a–so that is a yes.

Shawn: How’s that?

Jan: It’s not a glass slipper, but it’ll do.

Shawn: If you try to leave the house without permission, I’m warning you, you’re going to be swarmed by a whole bunch of unfriendly cops.

Jan: Duly noted. I just hope belle’s gonna be okay with this.

Shawn: You’re not gonna have to worry about belle.

Jan: Did you tell her I’d be moving in?

Shawn: She’s not gonna be there.

Jan: What do you mean? Is she away on business?

Shawn: She’s staying at her mom’S.

Jan: She moved out?

Shawn: For now.

Jan: Shawn, is it because of–

Shawn: Yes, jan, of course it is!

Jan: I’m sorry. Okay? I know this is my fault. Well, I guess it is the devil’s too. And I know that you feel guilty because you didn’t tell belle we slept together. You were just trying to protect her, right?

Shawn: I– I was trying to protect myself. And I need to hold myself accountable for my actions.

Jan: Well, for what it’s worth, I am sorry. I don’t wish these problems on you.

Shawn: Okay, jan, just cut it out. Stop pretending that you care about my marriage, all right?

Jan: I care about you. And about bringing this baby into a warm, loving environment. But I guess for now it’s just going to be the two of us. I mean, the three of us.

Belle: Oh, you’re right. I’m not gonna solve any of my problems by running from them.

Eric: Trust me, you can’t get far enough. So, does this mean–?

Belle: It means I’m gonna go to mom’s and get my stuff and go home.

Eric: Yay! Proud of you. Listen, I’m here for you. Whatever you need.

Belle: Thank you. Oh, you always know what to say.

Eric: Not always.

Belle: You know, if you don’t want to deal with the whole nicole and rafe thing, you can come help me.

Eric: No, I need to take a little bit of my own advice and not bury my head in the sand. Listen, nicole and I, we’re divorced now. She’s moved on with her life and I need to move on with mine.

Ciara: Oh, wow. Look at this. It is official. My baby is going to be the best-dressed baby in all of salem. Oh, my god.

Allie: And he deserves it. I mean, after what you’ve been through, nothing but the best for this little miracle. And I bet he’s going to be showered with gifts too. I mean, what does your registry look like?

Ciara: Actually, I haven’t put much on my registry yet.

Allie: Oh, well, we can take care of that. We’ll go down to the square, I’ll walk you through it, we’ll spend the day together.

Ciara: Actually, thank you, that’s really sweet, but I’m still really worried about ben and I would just like to go to the garage and check up on him.

Allie: Check on what? I mean, you saw his note.

Ciara: Yeah, I know, and I know it seems silly, but maybe it’s the hormones. I don’t know, I just feel like I really, really need to see him right now. Can I have a raincheck?

Allie: Of course.

Ciara: Thank you. So much. For everything. You’re amazing. Mwah.

Demon allie: That ciara is a stubborn one, isn’t she? Looks like she’s not going to rest until she finds ben. So I guess I have to do something a little more drastic.

Ben: What if ciara thinks I just took off? What if she thinks I just left her and the baby?

Johnny: Why would she think that?

Ben: I don’t know, man! I don’t know! Maybe she thinks I’m getting cold feet about being a dad. Who knows what kind of poison that demon’s pouring into her ear right now!

Johnny: Ben, I already told you that is a waste of your time and energy.

Ben: We gotta do something, okay? The devil is after my wife and my baby, johnny!

Johnny: Look, I’m sorry, ben, I have tried everything.

Ben: This crypt, it’s on your family’s dimera property, right?

Johnny: Yeah.

Ben: Does anybody ever come back here?

Johnny: I mean, sometimes to pay their respects, honor my dead relatives.

Ben: Okay, and how often does that happen?

Johnny: I don’t know.

Ben: Well, think, johnny! I mean, when was the last time you came back here?

Johnny: Uh, I was– I came down here last halloween to scout locations for my movie. As it turns out, my grandpa john was actually locked up in here at the time.

Ben: But you didn’t find him?

Johnny: No, my grandma stopped me. I–I heard some voices nearby the other day. I tried yelling out, but–

Ben: But they didn’t hear you?

Johnny: No. I was pretty weak at the time, but–

Ben: Hello! Hey! Is anybody out there? Hello!

Johnny: I told you, you’re wasting your time!

Ben: Do you have a better idea?

Johnny: Hey! Hey! We’re in here!

Ben: Hello! Is anybody out there?

Johnny: Help us!

Ben: Help!

Trelegy for copd.

Shawn: Belle.

Belle: Hey, so I’ve been thinking about, well, everything and so I wanted to come home and talk–

Jan: I know I should be resting but I– belle. What a surprise.

Belle: I could say the same thing. What the hell is she doing here?

Jan: Haven’t you heard? I’m moving in.

Tripp: Hey. So how are you feeling? Did that drink do the trick?

Chanel: You know, I think it did. And now I’m hungry.

Tripp: You know what? Me too.

Chanel: Okay, well, I know a place where I can get you a discount on a ham and cheese croissant. No electrolytes, but very tasty.

Tripp: Okay. Well, lead the way.

Chanel: All right.

Ciara: Eric?

Eric: Ciara.

Ciara: Oh, my god! Hi! It is so good to see you.

Eric: You too. The both of you!

Ciara: Oh, yeah, I’m getting pretty big, aren’t I?

Eric: No, you look great! Oh, my god.

Ciara: Oh, thank you.

Eric: Hey, can I get you a menu?

Ciara: No, actually, I just stopped by looking for clyde.

Eric: Clyde? Why? Why?

Ciara: I was kind of hoping he could tell me where ben is.

Eric: Is there something wrong?

Ciara: Well, I hope not. I woke up this morning and ben was gone. He wrote me a note saying that he was work and I just drove by the garage and he’s nowhere to be found.

Allie: Evan frears, aka christian maddox. Big fan of your work.

Evan: Who in the hell are you?

Allie: Me? I’m your new best friend.

Evan: How do you figure?

Demon: Because I’m about to offer you the chance of a lifetime. How’d you like to get revenge on ben weston?

Evan: Okay. Now you have my attention.

Allie: Awesome. You and i have so much to talk about.

Ben: Hello?

Johnny: Somebody, help us, please!

Ben: Hello! Johnny, you said yourself sooner or later somebody’s going to walk by here. Hello!

Johnny: It’s no use.

Ben: Is anybody there?

Johnny: It’s no use.

[Banging] Wait a second. Do you hear that? Somebody’s outside! We’re saved!

Allie: You know, evan– can I call you evan? I’m just not a big fan of “christian.”

Evan: Call me whatever you want.

Allie: Great. See, we’re getting along already. I knew we’d be pals.

Evan: And why’s that?

Allie: Because we have so much in common. For instance, I heard you play for both teams, so to speak. I, myself, have recently begun exploring the wonderful world of bisexuality.

Evan: Just get to the part where you help me get revenge on ben weston.

Allie: I was getting to that. You see, that’s the other thing we have in common. I know you hate him.

Evan: He’s the reason I’m in here. The reason I lost everything.

Allie: I know all about that. How he ruined your plans by rescuing ciara. If that pesky ceiling hadn’t fallen on you, you’d be out there living your best life. But instead, you’re stuck in here, while ben and ciara are happily married.

Evan: I’ve heard.

Allie: Well, now ben is getting in my way. And I just can’t have that. So that’s where you come in.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[Unsettling music]

Demon johnny: Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight?

Jake: I gotta to warn gabi.

[Door slams] Guess I’m dancing with the devil after all.

[Sighs]Va: Jake? You okay?

Jake: [Sighing]

Rafe: Stick me with all this damn paperwork. Like I’ve got nothing better to do than stay here all night.

Nicole: Hey. I just heard that all the charges against ava were dropped. How the hell did that happen?


[Door closes]

Marlena: So it’s true. The prodigal son returns.

Eric: What, you didn’t believe it?

Marlena: No, you told me on the phone. I just had to see it with my own eyes. Oh, bring it, bring it. Oh, my darling. Mm, mm. How I have missed you.

Eric: I’ve missed you too.


Marlena: What, what, what– what is it?

Eric: No, it’s just that I– I feel bad that I just went back to africa so soon. I should have stuck around, made sure you fully recovered.

Marlena: No, no, no, I’m fine. And thanks to the help and the love of family and friends, you saved my soul. You set me free.

Eric: [Sighs]

Gabi: [Sighs]

Ej: Rough day at the office?

Gabi: What, is trask letting everybody out of jail?

Ej: [Chuckles] You seem surprised. I was sure you’d have heard about my exoneration by now.

Gabi: Guess I blocked it out.

Ej: Mm. Well, in case you blocked out the other equally-important part, I’m innocent. It turns out that the devil used belle black to set me up.

[Phone ringing]

Shawn: Thanks, uh– thanks for coming to see me.

Belle: Oh, I didn’T. I, uh–I came to see a client.

Shawn: Oh. Well, uh, look, before you do that, can you give me a few minutes to make my case?

Belle: What case?

Shawn: Like, the one where i try to convince you, my wife, the woman that I love more than anything in this world, that she should come home?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Shawn: This–this situation with jan is, um– it–it’s challenging.

Belle: Challenging?

Shawn: It–all right, it’s a nightmare, all right? It’s a total, total nightmare. But I miss you, belle. Look, and I know that you miss me, too.

Belle: This “situation” you’re referring to, let’s just call it what it is. You slept with a homicidal maniac whose only mission in life is to drive us apart. And now said maniac is having your baby.

Shawn: I am so sorry.

Belle: [Sniffles] You impregnated her, what, four months ago?

Shawn: Look, come on, can we not do this, please?

Belle: Yes or no?

Shawn: Yes.

Belle: Yes, on christmas eve. Otherwise known as our wedding anniversary. And did you tell me then that you had slept with her? Or did you allow me to believe I’d interrupted you before you had had sex?

Shawn: I thought that I was having sex with you, all right? But then you walked in, the real belle, and then the belle that was in bed with me, she turned into jan, and I was horrified.

Belle: Oh, so horrified that you confided in me? Your wife, the woman you love more than anything, you told me that moments after it happened?

Shawn: Look, no.

Belle: No. Did you tell me the next day?

Shawn: N-no.

Belle: No. In fact, you never told me at all.

Shawn: Listen, the reason why I did not tell you was because i knew that it was gonna hurt you. Worse than that, it was gonna traumatize you. You’d be devastated. All right? Just as I was. I just–I didn’t want to do that to you.

Belle: And it never occurred to you that that woman could be pregnant?

Shawn: I thought that I was in bed with you. And you’re on birth control.

Belle: But when I walked in on you, it was clear that the woman you were sleeping with was not me. And it still did not occur to you that she could have been knocked up?

Shawn: No, it did not.

Belle: Oh, my god. Well, can you concede that maybe it should have?

Shawn: Okay, yes. Yes, I can. Okay? But like I said, I was rattled. I was ashamed. I was–I was embarrassed. Okay? And even if that thought had crossed my mind, I mean, what would telling you have done?

Belle: God. Shawn, you really don’t get it, do you? This entire thing could have been avoided. She could have taken the morning after pill.

Shawn: Oh, no, no. You know damn well that jan would never have consented to that.

Belle: I could have gotten a court order.

Shawn: Wait, a court order?

Belle: Yes, shawn. What she did to you– making you believe that she was your wife and then manipulating you into bed with her, that is sexual assault. [Sighs] You know, the devil made it possible, but jan is the one who got you to have unprotected sex with her under false pretenses.

Shawn: Well, you know what? I’m sorry. I’m sorry that I’m so damn clueless. But unlike you, I don’t have a law degree. So that thought never even crossed my mind, all right? All I know is is that at that moment, I had made the biggest mistake of my life. And the horror of that mistake has been compounded– exponentially compounded by jan being pregnant. And if you think that this isn’t a total nightmare for me, let me assure you, aside from anything happening to you or to claire, god forbid, well, I cannot think of anything–anything in this world that would make me more miserable.

Belle: And I’m sorry that you’re so miserable. But still, I am just shocked and so disappointed that months went by without you telling me the truth and that I had to find out by some lunatic that you knocked up by having her call me down to statesville and showing me so proudly the fruits of this situation.

Shawn: Hey, listen– listen, you have every right to be angry. You do. Look, worse than angry. You–horrified. Okay? Just like I am.

Belle: [Sniffles]

Shawn: But belle, I can’t change the past. I can’T. I–I can’t change what the devil did. Okay? All I can do is I can promise you–promise you that I will spend the rest of my life making it up to you.

Belle: And how are you gonna do that?

Shawn: Look, by each– by each and every day proving and showing you that you are what is the most important thing in the world to me. You. Belle, I can do that. I can get us back there. I know I can do it. You just gotta give me a chance.

Eric: I’m relieved you’re okay, but I’m also disappointed.

Marlena: In what?

Eric: In myself. I really thought that I got rid of the devil for good, but then I let him jump into my sister.

Marlena: You didn’t let anything happen. Satan is–is a– a master of deception. Has been ever since the–

Eric: Minute he talked eve into tempting adam with an apple.

Gabi: [Sighs] So the devil set you up. Am I supposed to feel sorry for you?

Ej: [Chuckles lightly] I didn’t come for your sympathy, gabriella. I came for my job.

Gabi: Well, the position’s been filled. I mean, I told my assistant I wasn’t to be disturbed.

Ej: Obviously, she recognized me. Until recently, I was ceo of dimera.

Gabi: Co-ceo. And when the evidence turned up that you kidnapped sami, she fired you.

Ej: Evidence we now both know was planted by satan. If it were not for him, I wouldn’t have even been removed from my position. He is the only reason you are in that chair.

Gabi: Look, you can blame the devil all you want, but the cold, hard truth is johnny was the one who got me into this chair. Johnny gave me this position, and then he tried to get me into his bed.

Ava: Jake? You okay?

[Dramatic music]

Jake: [Sighs] Yeah, just had a nightmare.

Ava: Must have been a pretty bad one.

Jake: I’m fine.

Ava: You sure?

Jake: Yeah.

Ava: Hey, you don’t seem fine. Your heart is racing.

Limu emu

Ava: Sorry. Didn’t mean to make this weird.

Jake: You mean weirder than, uh, sleeping together without actually… sleeping together? Sharing a bed with a friend?

Ava: But I am your friend, jake. So if you want to tell me about your nightmare, I am happy to listen.

Jake: You know, honestly, I can’t remember. I’m gonna grab a shower.

[Soft emotional music]

[Phone ringing]

Belle: Okay, for argument’s sake, let’s say I do give you another chance. Then what?

Shawn: Then whatever– whatever you want. I–I’ll follow your lead. Look, I made a huge mistake not being honest with you. I hate–I hate that I didn’t tell you, and I– I hate that I hurt you. Okay, but I don’t want this to destroy our marriage. Just, I want–I want to figure this out with you. I mean, what do– what do you want?

Belle: Well, I know what I don’t want. [Sniffs] I don’t want jan spears to be a part of my life in any way, shape, or form.

Shawn: Well you–you’re not gonna have to worry about that.

Belle: Jan is the– the baby’s mother. If the baby is in your life and you’re in my life, then jan is in my life. Okay? And–and considering she’s tried to kill me, like, a dozen different ways, I just–I think it’s best if I steer clear.

Shawn: Hey, jan– jan is unpredictable, all right? So, I mean, we don’t know what she’s gonna do. So I don’t, maybe– maybe motherhood is gonna calm her down and mellow her out.

Belle: Oh, my god, you’ve got to be kidding me.

Shawn: No, look, I haven’t heard from her once since she told me about the baby. Not once.

[Phone rings]

[Phone beeps] Hello?


Belle: [Sniffles]

Shawn: It’s statesville.

Belle: As you were saying?

Nicole: So ava tries to ruin your life and she walks? That’s insane. I hope you gave trask a piece of your mind.

Rafe: I would have, had she let me know before she released ava. But she just did it. Then she ordered me to arrest gwen, which led to this pile of paperwork, which is why I couldn’t see you last night. Sorry.

Nicole: No, I’m– I’m sorry, rafe.

Rafe: Yeah.

Nicole: Do you think you could take a break?

Rafe: I would love that. Yeah, I would. Maybe we can grab some breakfast at the pub?

Nicole: The pub?

Rafe: Yeah. That okay?

[Uneasy music]

Nicole: [Sighs]

Eric: I’m sorry I just didn’t come home sooner to help with belle. I was just, you know, i was off the grid. And I know you and john reached out.

Marlena: You don’t have to apologize. Look, we–we all pulled together and we saved your sister.

Eric: Thank god for that. And nobody was aware that she was possessed? Not even shawn?

Marlena: Well… susan banks did think the devil had gotten into belle, but ben thought it was somebody else.

Eric: Who?

Marlena: Johnny.

Ej: Johnny was trying to seduce you? Wasn’t he aware that you were dating my brother?

Gabi: Oh, yeah. He was aware. He just didn’t give a damn. Long story short, jake and I had big plans. And obviously johnny did too, so I suggested the three of us work together.

Ej: [Chuckles] In other words you wanted to convince my son to pool his shares with yours so you could take over dimera.

Gabi: Look, I’m all about business, but your little casanova wanted more. He kept pushing me to ditch his uncle jake and team up with him in more ways than one.

Ej: But you refused?

Gabi: Until I found out that my boyfriend was stabbing me in the back.

[Sighs] I mean, now we know it wasn’t my boyfriend, it was satan. I–I wanted to confront jake, to ask him why he tried to double-cross me.

Ej: So what stopped you?

Gabi: Oh, it was johnny. Johnny suggested that we make jake think we’re all on the same page and ambush him at the shareholder meeting, and vote chad out and me in.

Ej: So it was johnny’s idea to make you ceo?

Gabi: It was less about me and more about a power grab. I mean, you do know your son loves to flex. He was very quick to throw you under the bus, that’s for sure.

Ej: And after your victory, my son continued to pursue you romantically?

Gabi: Yeah, he wanted to “take our relationship to the next level.” But before that could happen, I found out that jake didn’t betray me. And I–I mean, I tried to fix things, but– well, it doesn’t even matter. You could–you don’t even have to take my word for it. You can ask your son.

Ej: I wish I could, but he’s gone. Giovanni is in italy doing some “soul-searching.”

Gabi: Great, well, I hope that works out for him. All right, well, you are all caught up now, so you can see yourself out. I do have an international corporation to run.

Ej: Gabriella… surely you remember how well we used to get on.

Gabi: What? When was that? Was that before you booted jake out of the family business?

Ej: And now it appears as though you and my brother are through. So why don’t you step aside and allow this innocent man to have his job back?

Gabi: [Scoffs] No.

Ej: Well, in that case, then, I suggest you remember I’m not as naive as my son. And I will always respect my father’s legacy. And by that, I mean I will not let it get run into the ground by an interloper. So don’t get too comfortable in that chair. It won’t be long before I put you in your place and reclaim mine.

Gabi: Ej, is that a threat?

Ej: No, no, no, gabriella. That’s a promise.

[Uneasy music]

Trelegy for copd.

Nicole: Uh, rafe, before we go to the pub, there’s something you should know.

Ava: Oh. Hope I’m not interrupting. I’m not sure if you just keep your trysts to the basic black conference table, or if maybe you were gonna sweep all those papers off the desk and go at it right there.

Nicole: [Scoffs]

Rafe: Ava, what the hell do you want?

[Dramatic music]

Gabi: [Sighs] Now who’s more insufferable? Ava vitali or ej dimera? You know what? Forget them. She’s a loser, he’s an unemployed loser, and you’re ceo.


[Knock at door] Damn it. I thought I told you I was not to be disturbed!

[Tense music]

Eric: Johnny was possessed?

Marlena: Yeah, that’s what ben originally thought.

Eric: Well, is there any truth to that? I mean, he was in the room when the devil left you.

Marlena: Yeah. Uh, but then– then belle tried to choke me to death. I–it was–it was satan. And–and it would have been disastrous if johnny hadn’t come in when he did.

Eric: Belle? I mean, is she okay? I mean, I haven’t spoken to her yet, so–

Marlena: Yeah. Yeah, well, physically– physically, she’s okay. Um, and the devil is gone, but when he was here, something happened that absolutely devastated her.

Jan: What do you mean he refused to accept the call? Shawn-douglas brady is the father of my child, which means he can’t just blow me off. [Exhales] Try him again, please? And tell him this is an emergency.

Belle: Should have taken that call from your baby mama.

Shawn: Look, come on. That is not funny.

Belle: Who’s laughing? This is exactly what it’s gonna be like from now on. When jan calls, you have to talk to her.

Shawn: Okay, well, I’m talking to you right now about saving our marriage. All right? Jan can wait.

[Phone rings]

Belle: Apparently not.

[Phone rings]

[Phone beeps] Detective brady’s phone. Yeah, he’ll accept the charges. Here, now you can talk to her ’cause I don’t have anything left to say.

Shawn: Belle, just come home. Please let me–

Belle: No, I’m gonna be at my parents’.

Shawn: Okay, what, jan?

Jan: Is that any way to talk to the mother of your child? I can hear the anger in your voice. You’ve been talking to belle, haven’t you? We both know how she upsets you.

Shawn: I’m hanging up now.

Jan: You wouldn’t dare. Not if you care about the life of our unborn child. Stuff. We love stuff.

Eric: [Sighs] Jan spears pregnant with shawn’s baby? I mean, she’s done some horrible things, but this is–

Marlena: Yeah. And I feel a bit responsible.

Eric: Mom, belle can’t blame you for doing to devil’s work. Neither can shawn.

Marlena: No, no, no, they– they don’T. Thing is that belle is upset with her husband for his lie of omission. You know, he never told her that he slept with jan.

Eric: Oh.

Marlena: Oh, good. Thank you.

Eric: Well, you know what? I better go check on belle and see if there’s anything I can do.

Marlena: I’m sure she would love to hear from you.

Eric: Yeah.

Marlena: Have you bumped into anybody else since you’ve been back in town?

Eric: Nicole stopped by. Talked for a bit.

Marlena: Mm-hmm. How did that feel?

Eric: Are you asking as my mom, or the highly-esteemed psychiatrist?

Marlena: As both.

Eric: Well, we’re divorced. And I’m committed to the priesthood, and she’s committed to somebody else.

Rafe: Well, the one good thing about the charges being dropped is I don’t have to see you around here anymore.

Ava: Great, well I didn’t come to see you, I came to see gwen.

Nicole: Why? Rafe just told me you sold her out.

Ava: I did what I had to to save myself. I took no pleasure in it, and not that it’s any of your business, but I have come here to apologize.

Nicole: You expect us to believe that you’re gonna make amends with gwen when you haven’t even apologized to rafe for setting him up?

Ava: Oh, okay. Well, you see, gwen didn’t have sex with my best friend, or my boyfriend, behind my back and lie about it. Unlike some other people I know. Mm-hmm.

Nicole: Rafe didn’t deserve to go to prison, and you don’t deserve to be free.

Ava: Who do I speak to about seeing gwen?

Rafe: I’ll let her know you want to talk to her. This won’t take long. Uh, meet you at the pub?

Nicole: Yeah, I’ll, uh, see you there.

Rafe: Okay.

Ava: [Chuckles] Yeah, um, I’m just gonna wait here while you go check on gwen.

Rafe: Yeah, right. After everything you’ve done to me you think I’m gonna leave you alone in my office? Let’s go. Get out.

Ava: Okay, okay, okay.

Gabi: Jake, what are you doing here?

Jake: I need to talk to you.

Gabi: No, I already know all about how your new girlfriend threw your old girlfriend under the bus to frame my brother. And I told trask there’s no way–

Jake: Ava is not my girlfriend. Okay? And even if she was, once again, it’s none of your damn business.

Gabi: And you’re okay with her ratting out gwen to save her guilty ass?

Jake: Gwen put abigail and her family through hell, so no, I’m not gonna lose any sleep over that. But I’m not here to talk about her or ava.

Gabi: Then what do you want to talk about, jake?

Jake: The devil.

Jan: Shawn. I knew you’d come.

Shawn: Ah, ah, ah. Whatever it is, you have one minute.

Jan: Gosh. You’re being so cold to me. And I’m really vulnerable right now. Can you at least show a modicum of compassion?

Shawn: 30 seconds.

Jan: You can act like you don’t care, and like you feel nothing, but I know you do. I know you love our baby as much as I do.

[Sobs] And I’m scared, shawn. I’m really, really scared.

Shawn: Let’s skip it.

Jan: Skip what?

Shawn: The tears. The games. All this manipulative crap. Okay? Why don’t you just cut to the chase and tell me what the hell you want.

Belle: I got your text. You said it was important.

Ej: I need your help to take back dimera enterprises from gabi hernandez.

Belle: I am dimera’s general counsel. Gabi’s my boss.

Ej: Only until you advise me on how to get rid of her.

Belle: And why would you take my advice, ej? Because you ignore it all the time. I told you not to hand over your shares to–to johnny, and you did it anyway. And that is why gabi is ceo. And she got johnny to throw in with her.

Ej: Actually, I just spoke with gabriella, and she informed me that it was johnny’s idea that she run the company.

Belle: Well, you handed him all the power.

Ej: [Sighs] I told you at the time that I never imagined he would undermine me. I trusted my son.

Belle: Well, you should have trusted your attorney more.

Ej: [Sighs] You’re right. I was a fool to be so dismissive. But from now on, I will listen. I promise.

Belle: I appreciate that. But I still can’t advise you on this.

Ej: [Sighs]

Belle: [Sighs sarcastically] Off the record though, I would suggest that you get johnny to sign a document handing over his shares. And then you can form a voting block and remove gabi and put yourself back in.

Ej: There’s just one problem with that strategy.

Belle: What’s that?

Ej: Johnny’s left town. He’s gone to italy to “find himself.”

Belle: Hmm. Well, then I guess you’d have to first find him and then get his signature. And really, that’s all I’m gonna say about it.

Ej: [Chuckles] Terseness. Wonderful quality in an attorney. Means fewer billable hours. And now that you’ve heard all about me, why don’t you tell me how you’re doing. Please.

Belle: Well, that’s not a question I can really answer in just a few words.

Jan: I’m not trying to manipulate you.

Shawn: [Chuckles]

Jan: I have been cooperative, straightforward, and completely honest since I told you about our baby. And that’s why when I learned something about our child today, I thought you’d want to know immediately.

Shawn: Okay, well, I’m here. So tell me.

Jan: Well, as you obviously know, I’m in my second trimester and so I’ve had a more thorough exam. And I’m afraid there’s some bad news. I have a medical condition with a long, complicated name.

Shawn: You are so full of it.

Jan: I am not. What I have is serious. It’s so serious that I need to be on bedrest for the remainder of my pregnancy.

Shawn: And, okay, what does that have to do with me?

Jan: Shawn, do you think that a person can get any rest in this hell hole? It is a nonstop cacophony. Shawn, you need to get me released immediately. For the sake of our baby.

Gabi: You want to talk about the devil. You mean your girlfriend?

Jake: For the last time, ava’s my roommate. It’s none of your business, but–

[Exhales heavily] I need help, gabi. And you’re the only person I can turn to.

Gabi: What do you need help with?

Jake: It’s about a dream that I had this morning.

Gabi: You came to talk to me about a dream?

Jake: Well, it’s more like a, I don’t know, it feels more like a memory I– you remember that stunt you pulled at dimera? Afterwards you left me in the conference room alone with johnny?

Gabi: W–what does that have to do with the devil?

Jake: Because in my dream, johnny wasn’t johnny, he was– he seemed possessed, all right? He had the–the freaky voice, the glowing eyes, the whole nine yards, and we went at it.

Gabi: You must have hit your head pretty hard, because when I got back you were out cold. Jake, jake, jake. Can you hear me? Jake! Johnny–johnny said you attacked him.

Jake: I don’t remember that. Okay, but in my dream, I punched the devil. Do you remember anything strange from that day?

Gabi: No.

Jake: You sure?

Gabi: Jake, what I remember from that day is that I got this job and I lost you.

Jake: This was a mistake. Sorry to bother you.

Gabi: Jake, hold on, wait–

Jake: What?

Gabi: Look, we–we both know the devil and johnny broke us up. Are you–are you thinking they’re one and the same?

[Phone rings]

Rafe: Gwen doesn’t want to see you.

Ava: Oh. Someone’s holding a grudge, is she?

Rafe: Mm. I don’t want to see you either. Get out of here and don’t come back.

Ava: Oh, I’m a free woman which means I can go wherever I damn well please.

Rafe: You know what? You got away this time. You so much as think about hurting me or nicole, you’re not gonna have to worry about speaking with gwen, because you’re gonna be in the same cell with her at statesville.

Ava: Hmm. Is this your “bad cop,” rafe? You never showed me this side when we were dating. If you had… we’d probably still be together.

[Phone rings]

Eric: Nicole’s with rafe now.

Marlena: She told you.

Eric: You want to know how I feel.

Marlena: I want to know that you’re okay.

Eric: I’m fine, mom. She’s my first love. Obviously, we’ll always have that connection, but we realized that we’re two different people who want two very different lives.

Marlena: So seeing her now is like seeing an old friend, hmm?

Eric: I may be a priest, but I’m still a human. But to be honest, when nicole, she–she walked through that door, my heart skipped a beat. She’ll still have that power over me.

[Emotional music]

We hit the bike trails every weekend

Jake: You know there was a time that I thought johnny was possessed? Ben and ciara did, too. Turns out the devil as in belle, and, well, johnny was just a jerk.

Gabi: What about your dream? I mean, it must mean something if you came all the way down here to ask for my help.

Jake: [Scoffs] It was a mistake. Again, sorry to bother you. Now get back to running dimera all by yourself.

Gabi: Jake, are you surprised that living under the same roof as ava vitali is giving you nightmares? I mean, I know you’re sleeping on the floor, but–

Jake: Eh, not anymore. In fact, we’re sharing a bed.

Gabi: Oh. Great. Thank you for the update!

Jake: Yeah. Nothing happened, for what it’s worth. I stayed on my side of the bed, ava stayed on hers.

Gabi: Yeah, that’ll last.

Marlena: Oh, nicole. How nice to see you.

Nicole: It’s nice to see you too, marlena. Are you good?

Marlena: Yes. All is well. Uh, but I’m afraid I can’t stay. I’ve gotta be– I’ve gotta be going. I will–I’ll be in touch with you?

Eric: You got it.

Marlena: Bye, sweetie.

Eric: Bye.

Marlena: Bye.

Nicole: Bye.

Eric: Coffee?

Nicole: I’ll–I’ll wait. Rafe’s meeting me here for breakfast. I–it was his suggestion. And I–I–

Eric: It’s okay. You don’t have to explain.

Nicole: Sorry.

Eric: What do you have to be sorry about?

Nicole: It’s just that– well, this is a little strange.

Eric: Wasn’t strange yesterday.

Nicole: Yeah, well– but now rafe’s about to walk through the door.

Eric: You’re afraid that I’m gonna be uncomfortable. Seeing you happy will never make me uncomfortable. Nicole, I’m truly happy you found somebody that puts you first, and can give you their whole heart. You deserve that. You really–you really do.

Rafe: [Sighs]

Eric: [Clears throat]

Belle: [Clears throat] I ran into shawn at the police station and…he wants me to come back home.

Ej: And what do you want?

Belle: I want to go back in time, and stop him from sleeping with jan, and make it so she’s not carrying his baby.

Ej: If only I could help you with that.

Belle: [Sniffles] You know what I wish? I wish that I could do what you did with sami when you found out she cheated with lucas, you know?

Ej: I banished her from my life.

Belle: I know. And as much as I want to banish all of this and just erase it from my consciousness forever, I can’T… because I love him. I love my husband.


Shawn: I just spoke to the prison doctor.

Jan: And she backed up what I said, didn’t she? I told you I wasn’t making this up. And now it’s as clear to you as it is to me. If I stay here, our child will not survive. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Jake: [Sighs]


[Unsettling music]

Ava: Hey, roomie.

Jake: Hey. You still shaken up about your nightmare?

Jake: No, I’m fine.

Gabi: I will get you out of jake’s bed, if it’s the last thing I do.

Rafe: Whoa.

Rafe: Hey, man.

Eric: Hey.

Rafe: Hey, hey, hey.

Eric: Wow.

Rafe: When did you get into town?

Eric: Ah, yesterday.

Rafe: Ah.

Eric: You didn’t tell rafe?

Nicole: We didn’t see each other last night, and, um, I tried to tell you this morning at the station, but we were interrupted. Eric and I ran into each other yesterday morning.

Rafe: Yeah, well– that’s great, welcome back.

Eric: Thanks.

Rafe: So, uh, how long are you here for?

Eric: Ah, just a visit. Yeah, nicole, she, uh– she told me about the two of you and, uh– I–I wish you both happiness.

Rafe: Nice.

Belle: [Sniffles] I just, um– I just feel like I’m never gonna be happy again. You know? Like this is a life sentence.

Ej: I understand.

Belle: [Chuckles weakly]

Ej: But I can assure you that it’s not. You are a smart, strong, resilient woman. And I have no doubt you’ll find a way to make the best out of all of this.

Belle: How? Jan is crazy. And she’s heartless. And now she’s pregnant with my husband’s baby.

Ej: If you want your marriage to work, then it will. And if anybody tries to get in your way, they do so at their own peril.

Belle: [Chuckles]

Ej: I believe in you, belle. Believe in yourself.

Belle: Thank you. [Sniffles]

Shawn: So what do you want me to do, jan?

Jan: You’re an officer of the law. Pull some strings, call in some favors. Get me released.

Shawn: They’re not gonna let a nutjob with your record out of prison just because you’re pregnant, all right? Even if it is high-risk.

Jan: There are options other than letting me free.

Shawn: Okay, like what?

Jan: House arrest?

Shawn: Okay, whose house?

Jan: Yours.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Beth: There’s something I need to tell you.

Lani: Okay. What is it?

Beth: You’re the one who shot that cop, aren’t you? I knew you were lying.

Tr: [Growls] Stop sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong. You keep your mouth shut. You learn your lines and leave the rest to me.

Lani: Beth… are you okay?

Beth: Yeah, sure. It’s just… I found out something tonight you deserve to know.

Paulina: Just what do you want to prove to me?

Tr: That I’m not the man that I was back then. That I will never hurt you again. Tr: I’m asking you for another chance. Tr: I hope I haven’t been too forward. Is this okay?

Paulina: Yeah. It’s okay.

[Chains rattling]

Tripp: You got your mind off johnny and allie?

Chanel: Johnny and allie who?

Johnny: [Scoffs] I don’t believe this.

[Tripp and chanel chuckle]

[Chains rattling]

Johnny: [Grunting]

Allie: So how is your tea?

Ben: It’s good. It’s really good.

Allie: I figured you could use some relaxing too. I mean, a new life is a miracle and all that but having a baby on the way is super stressful.

Ben: Yeah. I’ve got to admit, I’ve been a little anxious recently and my dad bunking here with us isn’t helping.

Allie: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I figured you’d be kinda freaked, especially since, um…

Ben: What?

Allie: Well, before she got pregnant, ciara told me that you were worried about having kids. That you were afraid that clyde’s genes might be passed down and you’d end up with some… demon seed or something. I’m sorry, I didn’t mean for it to sound like that.

Ben: No, it’s–it’s okay. And, um, that’s exactly how I was feeling back then. Yeah. I’m just grateful dr. Evans set me straight.

Allie: Yeah, me too. And obviously, I mean, you had nothing to worry about. Your baby is going to be absolutely perfect.

Ben: [Sighs]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Tr: You have no idea how I’ve longed to be with you like this, paulina. It’s as if no time has passed at all.

Paulina: But so much time has passed, and yet, somehow you–you make me feel like that young girl who was swept off her feet by a handsome young boy.

Tr: The twins are asleep?

Paulina: They are.

Tr: Chanel is out?

Paulina: She is.

Tr: Maybe I could sweep you off your feet again… tonight.

Tripp: Mmm. You taste like cherries.

Chanel: [Chuckles] Well, four cherry bombs will do that. Don’t you like cherry?

Tripp: No. I love it.

Chanel: [Laughs] Oh, you’re definitely wasted.

Tripp: Probably. You?

Chanel: Same.

Tripp: So I guess it’s the alcohol making you forget about those two twins, you know? What were their names again?

Chanel: I have no idea who you’re talking about.

[Both laughing]

[Chains rattling]

Johnny: [Scoffs]

Waiter: You two wanna get a room?

Chanel: [Laughs] Oh, but that is not such a bad idea.

Johnny: Damn it, chanel. It’s a terrible idea. Chanel, don’t!

Allie: So you and ciara must be so excited about having a little boy. I mean, you two, you’re gonna be the best parents ever.

Ben: [Sighs] I’m sorry. Um… just feel a little, like, sleepy… all of a sudden. [Clears throat]

Allie: I guess I’m boring you.

Ben: You are not boring me. Never. No. Maybe it’s just this, uh, relaxing tea of yours.

Allie: Well, I will get going and I’ll let you get a good night of sleep, but, um, before I go, I actually wanna show you some pictures of a few things I told ciara I’d bring over for the baby. Just, you know, some stuff henry outgrew. So, you know, that’s some– some blankies and some onesies. And this one is my fave.

Ben: What is that?

Allie: Baby’s first halloween. Isn’t it cute? Your little guy is going to be the handsomest devil on the block. When it comes to pain medicine, What do I deserve to know?

Beth: I don’t know quite how to–

Julie: Lani, darling. Oh, I–I didn’t know anyone else was here.

Lani: Uh, this is beth. Beth, this is eli’s grandmother, julie williams.

Beth: Nice to meet you.

Julie: You’re a friend of eli’s?

Beth: Not exactly.

Lani: She used to date my biological father.

Julie: Really? Well, what are you doing here?

Lani: She brought eli these beautiful flowers.

Julie: Even though you don’t know him?

Beth: Well, like I was telling lani, I’ve had her husband on my mind. I don’t know if you know, but I met with him at the police station right before he went to the park. I was probably the last person to see him before he got shot.

Julie: Yes, I–I was told that eli was… questioning you about tr. Checking up on his background to make sure he’s telling the truth about turning his life around. And you said yes. Indeed, that’s just what he’s done. Have I got that right?

Tr: What do you say, huh? I’ll put on some coltrane, make you a manhattan in a martini glass just the way you like.

Paulina: You remember?

Tr: Just like it was yesterday. You wait here. I’ll get that manhattan.

Paulina: Ray, wait.

Tr: What? What do you need?

Paulina: As much as I’d love for you to sweep me off my feet again, not tonight. Not yet.

Tr: I see. And that would be because of… abe carver… am I right?

Abe: Oh, kate. I didn’t know you were working here again.

Kate: I’m not working here. I’m just helping roman out behind the bar because I have a lot of free time on my hands.

Abe: Well, I don’t suppose that you would be interested in coming back to the mayor’s office?

Kate: Uh… I think you’re just fine without me.

Abe: Well, I’m not so sure about that. Look, I’ll have a g&T.

Kate: Okay.

Abe: No, make it a double.

Kate: That sounds serious.

Abe: It’s just one of those days.

Kate: Okay, well, I am not really an official bartender, but I do think that I have the ability to be a good listener if you wanna talk about it.

Tripp: Mmm, yeah. What do you say we get another round to celebrate our liberation? Huh? What do you say?

Johnny: Yeah, that’s it. That’s it. Just stay there. Don’t leave together.

Chanel: Uh, I say, yes. Yes, I will definitely do another round.

Tripp: Excellent, excellent. Hey, excuse me, sir. Another round, my friend.

Waiter: I think you two have had enough.

Chanel: Aww, you’re no fun.

Tripp: Yeah, no fun at all. In fact, do you even know the meaning of the word?

Waiter: I’ll call you a cab.

Chanel: Well, I guess that’s destiny, then. Your place or mine?

Johnny: [Sighs]

Ben: You dressed up henry like the devil for halloween?

Allie: I did. And it was adorable. Those little horns, to die for, honestly.

Ben: I don’t– I don’t remember you dressing him like–

Allie: Ben, are you okay?

Ben: I think there’s something in the tea.

Allie: Tea leaves. I lived in england, remember? They take their tea very seriously there and it rubbed off. Nothing like a good cuppa, right? Allie: Ben, are you all right? The lows of bipolar depression

Abe: [Chuckles] Love can be tricky, can’t it?

Kate: Mm-hmm. Ergo, the double gin and tonic.

Abe: Mm.

[Chuckles] You know, I– I had the kids last night and… when I returned them to paulina, I forgot jules’ pacifier and she can’t sleep without it. So I had to run it back over to paulina and, um… well… looks like we had settled into a new normal. Friendly co-grandparents, that’s all. But then–


Kate: [Chuckles] And then what?

Abe: She kissed me. And it rattled me. And I wish to hell it hadn’T. The truth is that–

Kate: Ah, the truth is you still have feelings for her?

Abe: I forgave paulina for what she did, but how can I ever trust her?

Kate: Well, I think maybe you could find a way.

Abe: How? I mean, I–I understand why she lied to cover up lani’s parentage, but that wasn’t the first time. And I know that if I got involved with her again, it wouldn’t be the last.

Tr: Don’t you let that man get you down on yourself, paulina. And you listen to me. Look at me. Abe carver does not appreciate you, not the way I do.

Paulina: I remember the way you used to appreciate me. In the beginning anyway, and it was the best feeling in the world. But along with that, you had to be the center of my universe.

Tr: I was a kid, paulina.

Paulina: And I was naive. It happened so fast with us. One day, we’re necking in the back of your car and the next, I’m in over my head.

Tr: I have apologized for that and will never stop.

Paulina: Well, and i forgive you for that, but it’s not so easy to forget.

Tr: You’re not letting me down gently, are you?

Paulina: Ray, I’m glad you’re sober and I’m glad you’re here. I just– I just wanna take things nice and slow. Can’t you understand that?

[Ominous music]

Tr: Of course. I understand. I love you, paulina, and I will be patient because you are worth it. And… whenever you’re ready, I’ll be waiting.

Tripp: Hmm, so your place or mine? Wait a minute, don’t you live with your mom?

Chanel: Don’t you live with your dad?

Tripp: Oh, okay. Obviously not the best idea. My–my place, I mean.

Chanel: Okay, so… we go to mine. Yeah, yeah, ’cause mama, she’ll be there, but she’s been running around after jules and carver all day, so she’s probably tired and she’s probably in bed already, and she– she won’t even know we’re there.

Tripp: I don’t know.

Chanel: Well, would you rather go home and be all by your lonesome and think about what’s her name?

Tripp: Definitely not.

Johnny: Chanel! I love you! Please don’t do this!

Tripp: So… shall we?

Chanel: Absolutely. Such a gentleman. I’m not used to that lately.

Johnny: No, chanel. Please don’t go.

Ben: The.. the tea leaves… look like a–

Allie: Reading tea leaves? That doesn’t seem like your thing, ben.

Ben: I must be seeing– I’m seeing things.

Allie: Could I top you off? Get you some more? Warm it up?

Ben: No. No–[Mug clatters] I’m–I’m–I’m done.

Allie: So… are you and ciara thinking about names?

Ben: We are. We have a–

Allie: I know you didn’t ask for my opinion, but I’ve always loved damian.

Ben: Damian?

Devil as allie: You don’t hear it so much anymore because of that damn movie.

Ben: Allie… something’s wrong.

Devil as allie: Oh, ben. Don’t you get it? I’m not allie.

Ben: Who are you?

[Sinister music]

We women are in the know about everything.

Lani: That’s right, julie. Beth told eli that tr never raised a hand to her and that he was clean and sober their entire relationship.

Beth: I did tell him that. Yes.

[Door opens]

Tr: Beth? What are you doing here?

Julie: She brought eli these lovely flowers. Wasn’t that thoughtful of her?

Tr: Very.

Beth: You know, I have already intruded on your family time for too long. Detective price, I wish you and your husband the best. And I hope he gets well soon.

Lani: Thank you. She…said she had something to tell me, but I– I guess it wasn’t that important.

Abe: You know, the lies paulina told, they weren’t just lies. They shook me to my core.

Kate: Understood. But I’m going to play devil’s advocate here just for a moment.

Abe: Hmm. Does he really need an advocate?

Kate: Mm, probably not.

[Chuckles] But paulina might.

Abe: I thought that paulina made your blood boil after that price town debacle.

Kate: [Laughs] Oh, please. Just about everyone has made my blood boil at one point or another. But, um, I’ve come to appreciate paulina after a conversation that I had with her a while back. In fact, it was the same day that you told her that you could forgive her, but you didn’t think you’d ever trust her again.

Abe: She confided in you?

Kate: She did. She told me everything. She told me her story. She… told me how she had suffered. She told me the reason that she gave up her daughter and the pain it cost her, the pain it still causes her. And I–I understood why she had lied to you. I understood why she had lied to everybody. And I was sorry that I had judged her without understanding all the facts, without knowing the facts. So I’m hoping that you will give her another chance. Because obviously, you have feelings for her and vice versa. And I remember a time that paulina made you a very happy man.

Paulina: [Sighs] I’m glad you came by. It means the world to me.

[Both chuckling softly] Mm!

Tr: I’m asking you for another chance.

Chanel: Shh! My mama might be here, and–

Paulina: Your mama might what?

Chanel: Mama! I–I thought you’d be in bed.

Paulina: You thought wrong. What’s going on here?

Chanel: Oh, you know tripp.

Paulina: Yes, I do.

Tripp: Nice to see you again, ms. Price.

Paulina: Oh, yeah? You sure about that?

Chanel: Okay, then goodnight.

Paulina: Goodnight?

Chanel: We’re just going to my room.

Paulina: The hell you are!

Devil as allie: Who do you think I am, ben?

[Sinister music]

Ben: You’re the devil.

Devil as allie: Took you long enough.

Ben: You–you drug– you drugged me?

Devil as allie: I did. I drugged you.

Ben: Why?

Devil as allie: Remember how satan was after your baby? Well, I still am.

[Cacophonous laughter]

Your mission:

Tr: How is eli?

Lani: The same.

Tr: [Sighs] I’m sorry, sweetheart. You just have to hang in there. You’re gonna get your miracle. I know it. Those are very pretty flowers that beth brought. What was that about her wanting to tell you something?

Lani: I don’t know. She just said that she found out something today that she thought I deserved to know.

Tr: And she didn’t say what it was? Huh, strange.

Lani: Yeah, well, like I said, it couldn’t be that important if she left without telling me.

Julie: Oh, she was distracted when you came in. I gather your relationship did not end well?

Tr: Why would you say that?

Abe: You know, when I went over to paulina’s, she was expecting ray. Now apparently, he had promised to help with the twins. He was a no-show.

Kate: Wow. I thought she was terrified of him.

Abe: She was. She was, when he first came to town. But ray is using this crisis with eli to ingratiate himself with her. You know she’s– she’s so vulnerable. And I think that he sees this opportunity to be there.

Kate: Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. Let me guess, let me guess. Did he swear that he’s “turned his life around?”

Abe: Swears he’s a “new man.”

Kate: Mm-hmm. So do you believe it?

Abe: It doesn’t matter what I believe. Paulina does. That’s what counts.

Paulina: Back it up, missy.

Chanel: Excuse me?

Paulina: You heard me. You two are not going into your bedroom.

Chanel: I–I own my own business. I make my own way and I can do whatever I want.

Tripp: Yeah.

Paulina: Not as long as you’re living under my roof. And certainly not when the both of you are four sheets to the wind. And I certainly– I won’t let you make the mistake of about trying to pay back johnny and allie when all you’ll end up doing is hurting yourselves even more in the process.

Chanel: But, mama, we–we just wanna have fun.

Paulina: Nothing good comes from the kind of fun that you’re talking about. Now maybe it’s not just for revenge. Okay, maybe it’s just looking for some comfort in someone’s arms, but it will be cold comfort come morning. Now, I’ve been there, you two. Now, trust me on that one.

Devil as allie: I have big plans for your little boy child, ben. Big plans. Unfortunately, I need you out of my way.

Ben: Ciara?

Devil as allie: Sound asleep. I didn’t poison her. At least, not yet. I mean, she is the vessel and there is no way in hell I’d do anything to hurt a hair on the head of that precious baby.

Ben: [Mumbling]

Devil as allie: I wouldn’t do that if I were you.

[Heavy thud]

Devil as allie: Looks like it’s curtains for you, ben weston. No matter who you are,

Julie: No offense, mr.–

Tr: Coates.

Julie: Mr. Coates. But it’s been my experience that when the relationship ends, it’s not because things are going swimmingly. And when you showed up, beth couldn’t get out of here fast enough.

Lani: Maybe she had someplace to be.

Julie: Oh, I’m sure she does.

Lani: Um, those– I’m guessing those are for me?

Tr: These long nights by eli’s side, I thought maybe you could use a little pick-me-up.

Lani: Thank you. Really sweet of you.

Julie: Pastries, flowers, unexpected visitors? Eli’s hospital room is turning into a regular grand central station tonight.

Tr: Because eli is loved by a lot of people. And don’t worry, I won’t stay. I have a meeting with a west coast backer.

Julie: Mr. Coates, please. Just one moment of your time before you go.

Tr: Of course. What’s on your mind?

Julie: Well, you’ve been spending a lot of time with lani and the twins.

Tr: Just doing my best to lend a hand.

Julie: Yes. I’m sure she appreciates it. But those are my great-grandbabies too.

Tr: Oh, I’m aware.

Julie: To be blunt, I know that you were a grave danger to paulina and lani in the past.

Tr: That was–

Julie: Yes, years ago. I know that. And I sincerely hope it’s all true and you’ve really turned into a new man. But if that is not quite the case, and you hurt anybody that I love, you’ll have me to deal with. Understand?

Tr: Yes, I do. Loud and clear, mrs. Williams. And I can assure you, you have nothing to worry about. You have a good evening.

Paulina: Chanel, I say this to you because I love you, baby. You just told me the other day that you wanted to take a break from relationships, that you needed to spend some time getting to know yourself. And as for you, didn’t you read my daughter the riot act a few days ago about her relationship with allie?

Tripp: I do feel bad about that.

Paulina: Oh, and this is the way you say you’re sorry? Ooh, you drunk as a skunk, dr. Johnson. Go home. Sleep it off.

[Sighs] I’m going to get you some water. And I’m gonna call you a cab.

Chanel: Awkward.

Tripp: To the nth degree.

Chanel: I–I hope you’re not upset, but I– I think mama’s right.

Tripp: She strikes me as a very, very sensible woman. Mm-hmm. And, like, between you and me, I don’t even know if I’m gonna remember this tomorrow, but… I’m glad we didn’t do anything like, screw anything up between us, you know? That way we can still be friends.

Chanel: Oh, yeah.

Tripp: I mean, we can still be friends, right?

Chanel: Yeah, I’d like that.

Devil as allie: So, how was the show?

Johnny: Chanel and tripp got wasted. They were all over each other at the bar and then they’d left together. But you probably already knew that.

Devil as allie: Want me to change the channel so you can watch them hop into bed?

Johnny: [Scoffs] Hell no, I don’t wanna see that!

Devil as allie: Suit yourself.

Johnny: Did you see ben? What did you do to him?

Devil as allie: I did exactly what I promised. I dealt with ben weston once and for all. Entresto is the number one heart failure brand

Johnny: You “dealt with him?” What does that even mean?

Devil as allie: Stop being such a scaredy cat. It’s good news. Especially for you. See, you’re not going to be alone anymore because you are getting a crypt mate.

Johnny: So you didn’t kill him?

Devil as allie: Johnny, how many living people do you know residing in crypts besides you? And I’m not sure how much longer you’ll be among the living either.

Chanel: Sorry, I’ve been such a mess tonight.

Tripp: Oh, no apologies. We were a mess together.

Chanel: You know, as– as much as I pretend to be all cool and confident and all, it really– it really hurts that– that johnny went halfway around the world to get away from me.

Tripp: Look, look if– if getting away from you was really the reason that he left, then it’s– that jerk is an idiot, all right? I mean that idiot, he’s a– little jerk, you know?

Chanel: Yeah, maybe both are true.

Tripp: Damn, right. I’m not just saying this to make you feel better too. I–I’m–I’m being totally and completely sincere.

Chanel: You sure?

Tripp: Mm-hmm.

Chanel: Even if you won’t remember any of this in the morning?

[Both giggle]

Paulina: Your car is here.

Tripp: Sorry again for being so, you know.

Paulina: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Yeah, I know, I know. Go home, sleep it off.

Chanel: I’ll walk you out.

Tripp: Oh, you will? That’s so nice of you. And thank–thank you again for your hospitality. You– really, you made me feel very welcome.

[Phone beeps]

Paulina: Tr. “Sweet dreams, paulina. I know I’ll be dreaming of you.”

Kate: Do you really think that paulina would take ray back?

Abe: I don’t know. But she seems to be giving him a chance.

Kate: Actually, that’s not surprising at all. That’s how abusive relationships work.

Abe: Well, I am well aware. But it is not easy to watch.

Kate: I know. If she does take that man back, I feel it won’t end well though. And she is going to need someone to be there to help her pick up the pieces.

Julie: Lani, darling, did I come on too strong with your dad?

Lani: You were direct and fierce. You know I love that about you. We all do.

Julie: [Scoffs] Well, I just wonder what– what beth wanted to tell you.

Lani: I’m sure if it was that big of a deal, she’ll reach out again.

Tr: Hey, bethy. It’s tr.

[Knocking on door] Beth, it’s me. I know it’s late, but I really need to talk to you.

Beth: What do you want?

Tr: What the hell do you think you were doing at the hospital with my daughter?

Beth: I didn’t say anything.

Tr: But you were going to, weren’t you?

[Sighs] I thought we had an agreement, beth. I thought I could trust you! But if I can’t, we’re gonna have to find some other way to make sure you keep our little secret.

Beth: It’s late.

Tr: Don’t you shut me out.

Beth: What are you gonna do?

Tr: What I should’ve done in the first place.

Beth: [Screams]

Johnny: Why are you chaining him up if he’s dead?

Devil as allie: You always were the stupider twin. He’s not dead. Not yet anyway.

[Chains rattling]

Ben: Ciara?

Devil as allie: Apparently, he only knows one word. Ben, ciara’s not here, but johnny is. And the two of you can keep each other company. I’m going to go keep your beautiful wife company and your baby too, of course.

Ciara: Mm. Baby, that feels amazing.

Ben: Well, it seems like the least I could do, seeing as that you are carrying my child. And you’re putting up with my dad bunking with us.

Ciara: It is nice to have a little alone time, isn’t it?

Ben: It is.

Clyde: Hey, hey, hey. Hope you got room for these.

Ben: Dad.

Ciara: Oh.

Clyde: I just had to do something to celebrate us having a baby boy.

Ciara: Wow, that is just so thoughtful of you, clyde.

Clyde: And–bear with me on this, I do have an idea about what to name the little fella. I was hoping I could run it by you.

Ben: Go for it.

Clyde: What do you think about clyde benjamin weston, jr?

Lani: Hi, baby. I just talked to jules. Um, paulina can’t get her to sleep. As soon as she heard my voice, she said, “soon dada home?”

[Laughs] She said that because, well, I guess I tell her a version of that every night before she says her prayers. Jules and carver, they miss you so much. And so do I. Baby, please, please, please wake up. Okay, because I don’t know, I don’t know how I’m gonna do this. I don’t know how I can go on without you. Please.

[Baby crying]

Paulina: Ooh, little girl, please. I know you miss your daddy. I know you want your pacifier. I can’t find the damn thing. Oh. Ooh. You need to sleep. Grandma paulina needs a glass of wine. Oh. Ugh.

[Line trilling]

[Line beeps] Voicemail again?

[Sighs] It’s me again, ray. Now, you said that you’d help out with the twins tonight. Where the hell are you? Ooh.

[Dramatic music]

Ej: Hello.

Beth: Hi. My name is beth. I’m looking for johnny dimera. I’m in his movie, and I haven’t heard from him in quite a while.

Ej: I’m johnny’s father. I’m sorry to tell you this, but johnny’s left town.

Beth: When will he be back?

Ej: I wish I knew. At this point, I don’t know if he’ll ever be back.

Johnny: Somebody… help me.

Chanel: I’m here, G.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ben: Clyde benjamin weston, jr?

Clyde: Yeah.

Ben: Yeah, that sounds, ah–

Ciara: It actually– you know, it can’t even be clyde benjamin weston, jr, because, um, the baby is your grandson, so it would have to be clyde benjamin weston iii.

Clyde: The third, really?

Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yeah. “The third,” and that kind of sounds a little…

Ben: Like he’s gonna be made fun of for the rest of his life.

Ciara: Yeah.

Clyde: Yeah, I never thought of that. Well, it don’t matter, you know. Whatever you name the little guy, I’m gonna love him to death. I’m gonna give him everything I– everything I should’ve given you.

Ciara: We–we really hope we didn’t hurt your feelings.

Clyde: Nah. Not at all. I met this nice lady today. We’re going out on a date.

Ciara: Oh. Well, that’s great. Are you guys going out tonight?

Clyde: Nah, she got a wedding to go to. We’re gonna go out to– oh, I get it! Yeah-ha-ha! You want a little alone time tonight, don’t you?

Ben: Yeah, a little bit would be good, yeah.

Clyde: Yeah. All right, hey. Don’t worry about me. I’ll find something to keep me busy. Enjoy the balloons.


[Both sigh]

Ej: Johnny left a letter. I didn’t read it until after he was gone. He said that he needed to go back to italy to do some soul-searching.

Beth: So he just took off and didn’t let anyone in the cast know?

Ej: Or any member of his family.

Beth: So you don’t know anything more than I do?

Ej: No. But if he does contact me, I’ll tell him to give you a call.

Beth: Okay. Thanks.

Ej: You’re welcome. Have a good night.

Lani: Any change?

Tripp: I’m sorry.

Lani: I wasn’t expecting anything.

Tripp: We use what’s called the glasgow scale to evaluate a comatose patient. Based on the exam, we give the patient a certain number. Unfortunately, eli’s number hasn’t changed.

Lani: Um, thank you for taking the time to explain that.

Tripp: Happy to do it.

Lani: Yeah, um, it’s really kind of you. I actually wasn’t expecting that.

Tripp: Wasn’t expecting what?

Lani: For you to be so generous and attentive with your time.

Tripp: Why wouldn’t I be?

Lani: Because I know how bad chanel and allie hurt you.

Johnny: Can you get me out of these chains?

Chanel: Okay, I–I don’t know how; I’d have to find a key or something.

Johnny: Okay, okay. Just– just go up to the house and tell them I’m here.

Chanel: Okay. I will. But first I have to tell you something. It’s about allie. Okay, so I knew there was something off about her when she came back to nicole’s yesterday. And then I found out that the cake that we made for ben and ciara’s gender reveal party, it didn’t have the right filling. It was supposed to be blueberries, but it looked like blood. And she told ben and ciara that I did it.

Johnny: Okay, chanel, uh, I’ve–I’ve been chained up here for what feels like forever. I was afraid I was gonna die in here, and you’re talking about freaking cake?

Chanel: I just need you to understand that I had it out with allie, and then–I don’t know how to tell you this, but allie is possessed. So allie didn’t do this to you. The devil did it, because the devil is in allie now.

Johnny: Yes, yes, yes. I know that already.

Chanel: You do?

Johnny: Yes. And there is so much more that I need to tell you, chanel. I still love you. I never stopped.

Chanel: I’m so sorry, G. I never should’ve given up on you. I’m so sorry.

Johnny: No, no, no, no. It’s okay; you don’t have to apologize for anything. It was me. I mean, it–it wasn’t me, but– look, can you please just get me out of these chains?

Chanel: Okay. Okay. I’ll try to see if I can find something to pry them off.

Demon allie: [Laughing] Gotcha. This is the sound of nature breathing.

[Baby crying]

[Knocking on door]

Paulina: Oh. Finally. Oh, I’m gonna give that ray coates such a piece of my mind. Come in; door’s open. Oh, abe.

Abe: Well, looks like you were expecting someone else.

Paulina: I was– I thought it was ray. I needed help with the kids, and he volunteered.

Abe: Yeah, right. Well, I came by because I found this under a table in my living room.

Paulina: Oh! Thank goodness. Look what grandpa abe found. Here you go. Here’s your little fooler.

Abe: I’m glad I found it.

Paulina: Ohh. Now, if that doesn’t put her to sleep, I don’t know what I’ll do.

Abe: You know, jules likes it when I sing “my girl.”

Paulina: But abe, you can’t sing.

Abe: Well, jules thinks I can.

[Baby crying]

Paulina: You win. Okay.

Abe: All right. You got it. You hear that, jules? You’re gonna get a song from grandpa.

Paulina: [Gasps] Aww. Look at that smile.

Abe: [Chuckling]

Paulina: Mm. [Laughs]

Beth: Tr. Tr, open the door now. I need to talk to you.

Tr: Coming.


[Sighs] The hell’s gotten into you?

Beth: Did you know johnny dimera left town?

Tr: What you talking about?

Beth: Your director, he’s gone. And his father doesn’t know if he’ll ever be back. Why didn’t you tell me?

Tr: Because I– I didn’t know anything about it.

Beth: You’re high as a kite, aren’t you?

Lani: I hope you know that chanel, she feels terrible that you got hurt in all this.

Tripp: I feel bad too. I said some mean things to her, and what happened was not her fault. Is there anything else I can do for you?

Lani: Bring my husband back.

Tripp: Wish I could. But eli’s stable. His condition isn’t deteriorating. And I’ve seen comatose patients regain consciousness after months and months. Hey, don’t give up.

Lani: I won’T. I promise. Um, thank you. Thank you for giving me hope.

Johnny: So you’re not chanel?

Demon allie: No, of course I’m not. Did you really think chanel would come to your rescue?

Johnny: Yeah. I did.

Demon allie: After what you did to her? She hates you now.

Johnny: I didn’t do any of that to her. You did. And once she finds out the truth, we’re gonna be back together.

Demon allie: You are locked up in a tomb getting weaker and weaker. I’d face reality if I were you.

Johnny: But you’re not me. Not anymore.

Demon allie: There’s something I want to show you. But first–

[Cell phone ringing]

Chanel: What do you want, johnny?

Devil as johnny: Hey, chanel. I’ve got some news for you.

Chanel: Okay, I’m at the hospital right now. And I know you probably don’t care, but my brother-in-law is in a coma, so I don’t really give a damn about anything you have to say.

Devil as johnny: Oh, I think you’ll care about this a lot. With depression, you just feel…blah.

Ej: Ugh, how the hell did you get on the property?

Clyde: Wasn’t very difficult.

Ej: Well, you wasted your time; you’re not welcome here.

Clyde: Not a very warm welcome for your old cellmate. Got anything to drink?

[Tense music]

Mm. Yeah. To life on the outside, huh? Mm, want to tell you how sorry I was I couldn’t accept your little job offer.

Ej: Mm. Yet you were salivating over that offer until your son walked in. Trying to make him believe you’ve changed? Good luck with that.

Clyde: It’s not just ben now, you know. I’m gonna have a new grandson any day now.

Ej: Mm, you said that before. Stop with the rubbish and tell me what you’re really doing here.

Devil as johnny: I’m back in italy now. I decided to sign the divorce papers you served me. You’ll be getting them soon.

Chanel: Good.

Devil as johnny: Oh, and my lawyer says I don’t have to pay a penny of alimony. I hear allie dumped you too. Nobody seems to want you, chanel. What a lonely feeling that must be.

Chanel: Is twisting the knife the only fun you get out of life? And I can’t believe I ever loved you.

Demon allie: I told you. She’s not coming to your rescue. No one is.

Tripp: Chanel? Hey, what’s wrong?

Chanel: Like you care, you big jerk.

Tripp: Okay, yeah, I have that coming. I had no business going off on you.

Chanel: Well, that didn’t stop you.

Tripp: Look, I had some time to think and cool off. And if you and allie want to be together, then I hope it works out for you.

Chanel: We’re not together and we never will be.

Tripp: What happened?

Chanel: Allie dumped me, even faster than her brother did.

Tr: Relax. We don’t need johnny dimera. I can direct this movie myself.

Beth: But he wrote the movie. What if the investors pull out when they find out he’s no longer attached?

Tr: Let ’em. I’m not worried about money. I told you, I can get everything I need from paulina. I can get my hands on her money once I marry her.

Beth: Women like paulina price don’t get to where they are by being fools. She might have a problem with you pumping all her hard-earned money into a movie.

Tr: If she does, I can make that problem go away. Just like I did with my daughter’s cop husband.

Beth: What the hell does that mean?

Paulina: Well, I got to hand it to you, you started singing and she went right off to sleep.

Abe: What’d I tell you?

Paulina: But I’m pretty sure that david ruffin’s legacy is still intact.

Abe: Oh, yes. I am too.

[Both laughing]

Paulina: [Yawning]

Abe: Am I boring you?

Paulina: No, no, no. It’s just that, you know, taking care of two little ones, well, I’m just exhausted. Maybe I don’t have what it takes to be a grandma.

Abe: Oh, that’s not true.

Paulina: Not a good grandma. Also, I’m–I’m just a wreck about poor eli. You know, I try to keep it together, but thinking about lani sitting next to eli’s bed, it just–it breaks my heart.

Abe: Mine too.

Paulina: I’m glad you came by. It means the world to me.

Abe: Aww.

Paulina: Aww. My asthma felt anything but normal.

Beth: You’re the one who shot that cop, aren’t you? I knew you were lying.

Tr: [Growls] Stop sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong. Keep your mouth shut, you learn your lines, and leave the rest to me. Once I get control of paulina, I’ll–

[Scoffs] I was supposed to be at her place two hours ago. I got to get cleaned up.

Beth: Yeah, well, you better clean your act up, or both of our plans will go up in smoke. My god in heaven.

Abe: Mm. Oh. I–I’m sorry, I’m sorry.

Paulina: For what?

Abe: Part of me– part of me will always love you. But I just– I just don’t want my heart to be broken again.

Paulina: Well, of course. Of course you don’T. I was pushing too far just now. I guess I was telling myself that we might be able to get past what happened. It looks like I was wrong.

Abe: You know, it doesn’t mean that you can’t call me any time that jules and carver get to be too much for you. I will drop whatever I’m doing and come straight here. I mean that.

Paulina: Thank you.

Abe: Good night. Good night, paulina.

[Soft dramatic music]

Paulina: [Sighs]

Johnny: You bastard.

Demon allie: You should’ve believed me when I told you chanel was done with you. Last time you broke her heart, she had sex with allie. I wonder what she’s going to do this time. That’s not my problem. I have bigger irons in the fire. I have to go check on my baby.

Johnny: Henry? Hey, don’t you hurt henry.

Demon allie: Not him, you moron. I’m talking about ciara’s baby. I have big plans for that little boy.

Johnny: Please don’t do anything to that baby.

Demon allie: I’m not going to hurt him. Why would I do that? But ciara’s due date is coming up, and I think it might be time to get rid of the daddy. He’s getting in my way.

Johnny: So what? You’re gonna kill ben?

Ben: Mm. Do you remember when we first started talking about having a baby?

Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yeah, I brought it up, and I took you totally by surprise.

Ben: Yes, you did. And honestly, I was just too scared back then, and I wish I was just on board from the beginning.

Ciara: So you got scared. So what? Who cares? You got over it, and now you’re looking at this beautiful adventure with open eyes.

Ben: Open eyes. And honestly, having this baby is one of the two best things that has ever, ever, ever, ever happened to me.

Ciara: Oh, my god, I can’t wait to meet this little guy.

Ben: I can’t wait either, and we got to name this little guy.

Ciara: Aww.

Ben: Do you remember when we both had that dream, and we named our kid bo?

Ciara: Mm-hmm. And now that we know it’s a boy, baby, I’d really like to name him after my father. Like, a lot. But what would your dad think?

Ben: It doesn’t matter what my dad would think. He is not naming our kid. And we are not naming our kid clyde. No offense to the clydes out there.

Ciara: Okay, so bo something weston. Are you okay with that?

Ben: I am okay with that. A lot.

Ciara: [Chuckles]

Demon allie: Forget about ben weston. The person you should be worried about is chanel.

Johnny: You leave her alone.

Demon allie: Hey. I have an idea. Chanel said she was going to the hospital. You’re the movie buff. Here’s something to keep you entertained.

Chanel: Allie looked at me like she was looking at a table or a tree, not a human being who was hurting because of her.

Demon allie: Well, well, well, what do we have here?

Tripp: Yeah, no wonder you’re not in good shape.

Chanel: And johnny just called to rub it in.

Tripp: I could never stand that little punk. I do not know what you saw in him.

Chanel: Well, I don’t see it anymore. He and his sister, they did a number on me, and I just wish I never met either one of them.

Tripp: I’m with you there. Look, I just got off duty. You want to–you want to get a drink or something?

Chanel: Oh, I’m here to see lani.

Tripp: Some other time.

Chanel: But… I’m no good to her like this. So why the hell not?

Demon allie: I have a feeling you’re not gonna like this next part. But it’s worth watching. Stay tuned.

[Eerie music]

Still struggling with ibs-c, mike knew he needed a plan.

[Knocking on door]

Paulina: Finally. Must be tr, two hours late. Door’s open; come in. Your timing’s great. Twins are asleep.

Tr: I am so sorry. I got stuck on a conference call with the coast.

Paulina: Whatever.

Tr: I can tell something happened. Is it your son-in-law?

Paulina: No. Eli’s the same.

Tr: Well, you look– you look down.

Paulina: Abraham stopped by. I made a damn fool of myself.

Abe: I brought something to keep you going.

Lani: Is this a vanilla milkshake?

Abe: Yeah. It’s your favorite, right? And sandwich in the bag.

Lani: Thank you. It’s really sweet of you, dad. It’s so hard to keep seeing him like this.

Abe: You know, you don’t have to be here all the time.

Lani: I spend as much time as I can with the kids. And then when they’re asleep, I feel like this is where I have to be. Like I–I have to keep telling eli how much I love him and how– how much I want him back, dad. I want him back.


Clyde: Your offer got me thinking. You know, we made a lot of money when we did business together a few years ago. Thinking we could do the same thing again.

Ej: My offer to help you leave salem is on the condition you never come back. I have no interest in forming any sort of partnership with you.

Clyde: Oh, I ain’t leaving salem. I am staying right here. But I am getting a little tired of working for minimum wage at the brady pub. So if we could make a deal, it could work out very well for you too.

Ej: How so?

Clyde: I’d do all the legwork. All you have to do is bankroll the operation and sit back and count your profits. Nobody has to know you’re involved. You’re a silent partner.

Ej: Mm. I know how you make silent partners, with a bullet in the back.

Clyde: [Laughs] Man, those days are over. I do have to keep up appearances, you know. And you can hardly afford to be picky, man. You don’t even have a job.

Ej: Just out of curiosity, what business were you thinking of?

Clyde: Well, there’s a small window of opportunity here. The, uh, local dealer has overdosed–

Ej: Drugs? I have no intention of getting involved in that.

Ben: I really wish that I got the chance to know your dad.

Ciara: I know, baby. Me too. I miss him more and more every day. But it’s like I can feel him rooting for us and little baby bo. It’s like our kid has a guardian angel protecting him no matter what.

[Knocking on door]


Ben: Please, please, please don’t let this be clyde telling me he left his damn keys.

[Sighs] Allie, hey.

Allie: Is it too late?

Ben: Too late? No. Come on in. Look who’s here.

Ciara: Allie. Hi. It’s so good to see you.

Allie: Same here. And you know, I still feel bad about your party cake, so I was hoping I could make it up to you. I was on an antidepressant,

Ciara: Oh, my goodness. Allie, the party cake was not your fault.

Allie: It was chanel’s, true, but still. Anyway, I know that it can be really hard to sleep during your last trimester.

Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yeah, it’s been so hard for me to get comfortable.

Allie: Well, I finally found this tea that I had when I was pregnant with henry. It is the most relaxing stuff ever.

Ciara: You are an angel, because I could really, really use a good night’s rest.

Ben: Yeah, she’s been a little wound up.

Ciara: Yeah.

Allie: Well, how about I make a cup of this for you right now?

Ciara: That would be great.

Ej: And you’re not really interested in running drugs.

Clyde: Know me better than I know myself, hm?

Ej: You think that if you get me involved in something illegal, you’ll have enough leverage to stop me from telling the authorities that you ordered a hit on me.

Clyde: Well, you’re giving me way too much credit, ej. I’m more of an open book kind of guy. I’m just not that devious.

Ej: You’re losing your edge, clyde. And that pseudo country charm of yours isn’t working like it used to.

Clyde: Well, look, whether you say yes or no to my offer, the deal that we made at statesville still stands. You don’t tell anyone about my part in what happened to you, I watch your back.

Ej: I’ll keep quiet, at least for now. As for future dealings between the two of us, getting involved in a business of some sort, forget it.

[Knocking on door]

Beth: Hope I’m not interrupting.

Lani: Beth?

Beth: Hi.

Lani: Hi. Um, this is beth. She is an actress. Um, she has a part in tr and johnny’s movie. This is my father, abe carver.

Abe: Huh.

Beth: Nice to meet you.

Abe: Yes, what role are you playing?

Beth: Celeste.

Abe: Oh. Well, that’s a– that’s a big part. You know what, I better be going.

Lani: Okay. Thank you for the milkshake and for being here.

Abe: You know, if you need anything, day or night, you know where I am.

Lani: I do.

Abe: All right. I love you.

Lani: I love you too.

Beth: He seems nice.

Lani: He’s the best.

Beth: Oh, um, I brought you these.

Lani: They’re beautiful. But you and I, we barely know each other. What are you doing here?

Paulina: More like embarrassed. Worse than that–hopeless. I thought there might be a chance that abe would be able to get past what I did. But I have to face that he’s never gonna trust me again.

Tr: [Sighs] I know what that feels like, to believe that you don’t deserve another chance when you want that chance so badly.

Paulina: What are you getting at?

Tr: I know that it’s gonna be hard to ever earn your trust again. But I hope it’s not impossible. I would do anything to prove myself to you. Anything at all.

Chanel: I want to make a toast. To the evil twins. They deserve each other.

Tripp: I will drink to that. Mm. [Sighs]

Chanel: Whoo. [Laughs] Should we do another round?

Tripp: That doesn’t seem like the sensible thing to do.

Chanel: Yeah, I know, but so what?

Tripp: Yeah. So the hell what? Yo, buddy, can we, uh– can we do, uh, this again? Thanks. You know, I–I want to make another toast.

Chanel: Mm. Mm-hmm.


Tripp: To having fun.

Chanel: Isn’t fun the best thing to have? I mean, why should allie and johnny get to have all of it and not us?

Tripp: Yeah. That’s right. That’s right. You know what? From now on, it’s nothing but fun for you and me, okay?

Chanel: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: Mm. You know, I normally don’t like herbal teas, but this one is really delicious. Thank you. And it’s already working. I’m already feeling kind of sleepy.

Allie: Well, that’s what it’s supposed to do.

Ciara: Actually, do you– do you mind if I go to bed now?

Allie: No. Not at all.

Ben: Wow. Okay. All right. That’s the good stuff. Let’s go, sleepy girl.

Ciara: Mm.

[Sinister music]

Allie: It’s time to get down to business. Once I get rid of daddy, I’ll have mommy all to myself. You know liberty mutual customizes your car insurance,

Beth: I–I just can’t stop thinking about your poor husband. I don’t know if you remember, but I met with him at the police station on the day that he got shot.

Lani: I remember.

Beth: I just feel so bad for you. He seemed like such a nice guy. I can’t stop thinking about you and–

Lani: And what?

Beth: You’re the one who shot that cop, aren’t you? I knew you were lying.

Tr: [Growls] Stop sticking your nose where it doesn’t belong. You keep your mouth shut, you learn your lines, and leave the rest to me.

Beth: There’s something I need to tell you.

Lani: Okay. What is it?

Paulina: Just what do you want to prove to me?

Tr: That I’m not the man that I was back then. That I’ll never hurt you again. I’m asking you for another chance.

[Dramatic music]

Chanel: [Giggling] Ugh. Okay. And now I’m drunk. Oh. I missed my mouth.

Tripp: There you go.

Chanel: Better now?

Tripp: Actually, you look amazing.

[Dramatic music]

Johnny: No.

Ej: I think it’s time for you to leave.

Clyde: I can’t do that.

Ej: What do you mean, you can’t? Just walk out the bloody door.

Clyde: No, no, I promised my son and his wife that I’d give them an evening alone in the apartment. And this town just rolls up the sidewalks at 9:00, you know, so… I wonder who the cubs are playing tonight.

[Suspenseful music]

Ben: Ciara’s sleeping like a baby.

Allie: This tea really works. I just poured some for us.

Ben: Ah, thank you.

Allie: You’re going to love how this makes you feel.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jake: 600 channels, and not a damn thing to watch.

[Knocking at door]

Jake: Coming. Benny.

Ben: What’s up, buddy? You busy?

Jake: No, man, just hanging. You want a beer?

Ben: Sure.

Jake: Hey, how’s ciara? Everything good?

Ben: Yeah, she’s great. She’s visiting her grandparents, and my dad is working. Thank you.

Jake: There ain’t a damn thing to watch on tv.

Ben: Ain’t a damn thing to watch on tv. Cheers. What’s up with the air mattress? You got company?

Jake: Actually, I got a new roommate.

Ben: Yeah?

Jake: Yeah.

Ben: Who’s that?

Jake: Ava vitali.

Gabi: Rafe! Thank you for meeting me. Let me get you a drink. Actually, you know what? Let me a bottle of champagne.

Rafe: A beer’s fine, thanks.

Gabi: Whatever. As long as we toast to taking down ava vitali once and for all.

Ava: What the hell took you so long? I’ve been chained to this chair for the last eight hours.

Melinda: The wheels of justice turn slowly, ms. Vitali. As if what I’m doing today has anything to do with justice.

Ava: You are in a terrible mood… which makes me think that my day is about to get so much better.

Melinda: Don’t gloat, okay? You and I both know we had you dead to rights. You framed a sitting police commissioner.

Ava: Yeah, but don’t forget you’re the one who prosecuted his case.

Melinda: I would watch my tongue if I were you. Do you have any idea how lucky you are you’re not facing serious time?

Ava: Oh. Does that mean we have a deal?

Melinda: As much as I hate it, yes, the deal has been finalized. You’re getting full immunity…

Ava: I love full immunity.

Melinda: As abhorrent as that is to me.

Ava: Oh, please. Get off your moral high horse with me. You made this deal because I am handing you your favorite thing in the world: A headline-making case. The people vs. Gwen rizczech.

Justin: I think it’s pretty clear that craig and leo have dropped out of the wedding. So what do you two want to do?

Gwen: Well, I suppose there’s no reason why we can’t still get married.

Abigail: Actually, there is.

Xander: What are you talking about, abigail?

Abigail: Sorry. Can’t be helped. Ladies and gentlemen, breaking news. Turns out, this wedding’s not going to be moving forward as planned because the bride is going to be otherwise engaged.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Xander: The hell do you think you’re doing?

Gwen: I know exactly what she’s doing. And you know what? It’s actually really pathetic. I wasn’t taken in, you know. All that talk about “oh, I’m your sister and I want to be there for your wedding.” No, you were just setting me up, weren’t you? You just want to humiliate me in front of xander and my father. You are just a spiteful little–

Abigail: Oh, can it, bitch. Look in my eyes. I’m not bluffing. I have finally, finally got the goods on you. Yeah. You overplayed your hand, and the party’s over.

[Quiet dramatic music]

Ava: So… I guess I’m free to go.

Melinda: Yeah. But don’t leave town. And clear your calendar. I want to make sure you’re prepped within an inch of your life when you testify against ms. Rizczech.

Ava: Well, I will cancel my trip to tahiti.

Melinda: Ms. Vitali, again, don’t push it. Right, after what you did to commissioner hernandez, if you so much as jaywalk, I will find a way to turn it into a capital offense.

Ava: I will be a model citizen. But right now, I’m gonna skedaddle because I don’t wanna run into gwen when you bring her in because she might be a tad peeved with me.

Melinda: Oh, for selling her out to save your own worthless ass? Yes, she might be. But she won’t be here for a while because we still have to draw up the warrant.

Ava: Yeah, well, that’s good. She still gets to marry the love of her life before she gets thrown into the slammer.

Melinda: I wouldn’t count on that. I don’t think that wedding is going to go exactly as planned.

Ava: Abigail.

Melinda: After what that rizczech woman put her through, I thought it was only fitting that she was the one that delivered the blow. Right now, my bet is that abigail dimera is having the time of her life.

Justin: What should we do?

Chad: Sit back and enjoy the show.

Abigail: So… here I am, and I have a little wedding present for you: The final nail in your coffin.

Gwen: Off our meds, are we?

Abigail: Oh, you are going down, sister-mine.

Xander: Abigail, if you have something to tell us, could you please tell us in private?

Abigail: No. Do you remember that fabulous anniversary party that you planned for my folks? That was public. Right, gwenny? See, she got me drunk, and then she made sure there was this really huge audience there to witness me destroying my parents’ marriage. Having all of those people there witnessing humiliating me, humiliating my parents, made it even more fun for her, more excruciating–

Gwen: Dad, will you do something? She’s completely out of control here.

Jack: Abigail, xander’s right–

Jennifer: No, jack, this is between the two of them.

Jack: You know what’s going on?

Jennifer: Oh, yeah, I have a pretty good idea.

Gwen: You know what? Actually, yeah, you win. Are you happy? You got what you wanted. You have absolutely ruined this for me. Xander, can you please get me out of here?

Abigail: Oh, no, no, no. Mm-mm. You’re not gonna go anywhere because I have planned for this to be public.

Xander: Abigail, let her go.

Abigail: Not until you hear my news, and then, if you still want to, the two of you can just ride off into the sunset together.

Xander: Well, then spit it out.

Gwen: No. She’s just gonna lie. She’s just trying to ruin the most important day of my life.

Abigail: Your life. Gwen, were you thinking about my life? Were you thinking about my life, my family, when you hit me from behind and you had me kidnapped? No. Mm-mm. No, I don’t think so. I think, as usual, you were only thinking about yourself. The lows of bipolar depression

Jack: Abigail, you’re wrong. It was ava vitali who had you kidnapped.

Abigail: You know, I gotta tell you something. When we bumped into each other at the police station, I lied about why I was there. I lied about why I was talking to ava vitali. Think about that.

Jack: I should stop this.

Jennifer: No. Look at gwen’s face, jack. She knows what’s coming and knows she deserves it.

Abigail: So, xander, I’m sure you remember the night that I went to the airstrip, trying to figure out who the person was wearing the sarah mask. Sarah, sarah, the love of your life.

Gwen: No, please.

Abigail: Oh, god, there’s no stopping me now. I’m sure you also remember that somebody hit me from behind while I was talking to ava vitali. Ava had an accomplice, and now I know who that person was.

Xander: Yeah. It was the pilot that took you to the island.

Abigail: No. No, I mean yes, he is the person who flew me to the island, but he’s not the person who knocked me out. Sister, did you want to tell your fiancé who that person was, or should I?

[Dramatic music]

Ben: This stuff is amazing.

Jake: Yeah, right.

Ben: Really.

Jake: Friggin’ padano on some sourdough.

Ben: A step up from my chips and dip.

Jake: [Laughs] Dude. Ava, I’m tell you, can cook her face off. My palate? Getting a freaking education.

Ben: Lucky you.

Jake: Yeah, not to mention she gives a wicked massage.

Ben: Bro, that is literally every person’s dream roommate.

Jake: Right?

Ben: I just didn’t know you two were that close.

Jake: We weren’T. I mean, we worked together in philly, but I kept my distance, but she was so down and out, after this breakup with rafe, I figured I’d help her out.

Ben: Who’s sleeping on the air mattress?

Jake: Me, hence the massages. Yeah.

Ben: Right. Right. So do you think this is gonna be like a long-term thing, or…

Jake: I don’t know, man. Probably not, because, as great as the food is, you know, this place is cramped. Plus, there’s the other thing.

Ben: What’s the other thing?

Jake: Ava just got arrested, and, from what rafe said, she’s going to be a guest of the state for a long time.

Gabi: Rafe. Okay, come on. Could you at least try to smile? I mean, the woman who set out to ruin your life is finally gonna pay.

Rafe: Okay, listen. What ava did was wrong, and she needs to pay the consequences, but I don’t think it is something that I should celebrate. Okay?

Gabi: Okay. I’m your sister, and I love you, and I’m only asking you this because I care, all right? Do you have any human emotion, at all? Because I get it. Everybody knows you’re all that truth and justice and the american way. Yeah, we know, but is there a tiny, tiny part inside of you that is happy that she’s in a cell? I mean, she did it to you.

Rafe: If I gloated, I wouldn’t be perfect.

Gabi: And we can’t have that now, can we?

Rafe: Listen, I get it, I hurt her, but–

Gabi: But what?

Rafe: Okay. If she had keyed my car or slashed my tires, all right, I let it go. You know? But she came after me, my job, what I do–

Gabi: Who you are.

Rafe: Yes!

Gabi: And for that, she deserves everything she’s got coming to her.

Rafe: Yes she does! Yeah.

Gabi: To ava vitali, going off to statesville for a very, very long time!

Rafe: Very long.

Ava: Or not.

Abigail: Well, looks like the cat’s got her tongue.

Xander: You’re enjoying this.

Abigail: Oh, you bet your ass I am, just like she enjoyed sending me to the asylum, just like she enjoyed spending new year’s eve with my husband. Oh, god. Am I stooping to your level?

Xander: Wait, you were hit on the back of the head. You can’t know who did it.

Abigail: You’re right. You’re right. I couldn’t see who hit me from behind. I couldn’t see who walked up behind me and clubbed me like an animal, but ava could, and did, and then she told me all about it. And then she told the da all about it. So… [Chuckles] Did you kids write your own vows?

Chad: You talked to ava? She told you all of this?

Abigail: Yeah. Some things happened after you went to new york. Ava got arrested. Her back’s against the wall. And, yeah, you know what they say about honor among thieves.

Xander: Wait, wait, wait. Ava got arrested and she called you?

Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, because she remembered that after I was kidnapped, chad came to her, offered to help her get a deal if and only if she named her accomplice.

Gwen: Right. So you admit, then, that ava said all of this because she was just trying to save her own ass? Don’t you think that that makes her testimony just a little less credible?

Abigail: Well, I imagine at your trial, which I’m personally looking really forward to, your lawyer’s going to bring that up. But right now, I’m not really worried about legal issues. I’m more interested in the court of public opinion! Specifically xander’s opinion.

Xander: What? Gwen’s right. I mean, ava’s not exactly trustworthy even when she isn’t facing prison time.

Abigail: Would it interest you to know that she told me gwen was the person who attacked me before she offered her immunity?

Xander: Why would she do that?

Abigail: She wanted me to be able to go to trask with something concrete. Assault, kidnapping. However, ava, you know, she’s still holding onto her little trump card because this whole night at the airstrip–that’s just the tip of the iceberg for her. Turns out, she’s got a whole lot more she can tell trask about what her dear friend, gwen, has been doing since that night. Turns out, that night is nothing compared to what she did later.

Justin: What could be worse than kidnapping her own sister?

Xander: Yeah, I’d like to hear the answer to that one too.

Abigail: What gwen did to me was terrible. But it is nothing compared to what she did to sarah.

[Dramatic music]

Ben: I don’t blame gabi for wanting to make ava pay for what she did to rafe.

Jake: Yeah, I don’t think that was gabi’s sole motive.

Ben: Meaning what?

Jake: I don’t think she was too thrilled with ava moving in here.

Ben: Oh, so she got her arrested to keep her away from you?

Jake: Well, gabi said she thinks ava only moved here to get under her skin.

Ben: So that’s what gabi thinks. What do you think? You think ava’s up to something?

Gabi: The hell are you doing out of jail?

Ava: Nice to see you, too, gabi.

Gabi: She escaped. No, you have to re-arrest her!

Ava: Right, I staged a jailbreak and came directly to an upscale little bar right in the middle of the town square. Guess you got all the brains in the family.

Rafe: So you made bail.

Ava: No. I didn’t have to. All the charges were dropped against me. I’m free as a bird.

Rafe: Yeah, right.

Ava: Oh, yeah. Read it and weep.

[Smooth jazz playing]

Rafe: I’ll be damned.

Gabi: What does it say?

Rafe: Trask gave her immunity in exchange for her testimony against someone else.

Gabi: She cannot do that!

Ava: Well, she’s the da, which means she can do whatever she wants. And since all the charges were dropped against me, so can I. Oh, rafe, please tell nicole I say hi. And, gabi…

Gabi: What?

Ava: I’ll be sure to give jake your regards.

Rafe: Wow.

Xander: So what exactly did gwen supposedly do to sarah?

Gwen: Nothing! Nothing. I barely even know her.

Abigail: No, but you know that xander loves her, that he wanted to marry her, and that you are only a part of the picture because she’s out of it.

Gwen: No, that was kristen dimera. She’s the one who kidnapped.

Abigail: True. True, but you were bound and determined to make sure she stayed kidnapped. So, back to the airstrip. I was beginning to figure out what had actually happened, that it was not, in fact, sarah who had come back to tell you that it was over, but it was someone in one of kristen’s frigging masks. So you clock me over the head, have me sent off to the very same island where you know for a fact that kristen is keeping the real sarah. Gwen knew that sarah was alive.

Gwen: No–

Abigail: She knew where she was, but she didn’t feel that you had the right to that information, and she didn’t tell sarah’s mother who, you know, was wandering around here, wondering why her daughter is ghosting her.

Gwen: Don’t, don’t, don’t–

Abigail: And the fact that she knew exactly where sarah was makes perfect sense because that’s why she freaked out when I said I was gonna go look for her.

Xander: Gwen couldn’t know where sarah was. None of us did until chad found you.

Abigail: Kristen. Kristen knew. And that right there is the connection that you need to make sure all of this finally makes sense. Because, xander, you know better than anyone that kristen likes to have somebody else do her dirty work for her. And she knew that gwen would do anything, anything, to get you to marry her. Boy. Y’all were just a couple minutes from the “I dos,” weren’t ya? So near, yet so far. Okay, this is a freezer, not a time capsule.

Gwen: Xander, I swear i didn’t know that sarah was on that island until you told me that she had been rescued. She is lying!

Abigail: Oh, okay. Oh, so this is like a “she said, she said” sort of thing now. Well, I guess it’s time for, you know, evidence. District attorney trask was kind enough to present me with a copy of ava’s statement, and, according to her sworn affidavit, gwen found out that sarah was on the island back in november.

Xander: November?

Abigail: And for those of y’all keeping score, chad and I– we didn’t bring sarah back until–I don’t know. What was it, baby? March? March. So that means gwen knew that sarah was on the island for four months? Wow. Well, you know, I guess that must’ve slipped your mind, but, you know, you were planning this whole wedding and all.

Jake: Gabi wasn’t wrong. Ava did enjoy driving her crazy. I mean, ava made gabi think that ava and I slept together.

Ben: Good thing gabi’s not the jealous type.

Jake: Our gabi? No. Dude, I practically had to train her with a fire hose to get her from killing ava.

Ben: Did you?

Jake: Train her with a fire hose? No.

Ben: Not that hose.

Jake: Oh!

Ben: Hey! Did you sleep with ava?

Jake: Like I said, okay, ava made gabi think we slept together.

Ben: Okay! All right! Not really a tough sell. I mean, ava’s a very attractive woman. You’re both free. Not exactly a stretch.

Jake: And that’s exactly what it was. Literally, a stretch. Ava gave me a massage. That’s it.

Ben: And there was no interest in returning the favor?

Jake: It wouldn’t matter if there was any interest because ava is in jail.

Ava: Not anymore.

Jake: Hey.

Ava: Hey.

Jake: I wasn’t expecting to see you till, well, never.

Ava: Oh. Well, rumors of my incarceration have been greatly exaggerated.

Jake: Hmm.

Gabi: You let that lying maniac go?

Melinda: Excuse me?

Gabi: Ava vitali. She tracked me and rafe down, said you let her go. Could you please explain how that happened?

Melinda: No, I don’t have to explain anything to you. It’s none of your business.

Gabi: The hell it’s not! I risked life and limb to get you that evidence that you needed, and now you’re just gonna let her walk?

Melinda: She had her own evidence, truly damning evidence.

Xander: Say it isn’t– say it isn’t true.

Gwen: I can’t do that.

Xander: You knew what happened to sarah, and you didn’t say anything? How did you find out?

Abigail: Kristen knew. Kristen told her in true kristen style. She blackmailed gwen into helping her escape. She told gwen if she didn’t help her escape prison, she was gonna come to you and tell you the entire truth about sarah. Now, we all know that kristen is very, very good at reading people. She sized up gwen and said, “now, that is a woman who would do anything, anything to get what she wants. Even posing as sarah.”

Xander: Posing as sarah?

Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, I mean, surely you remember when sarah came back to town a while back to reject you for the second time. Well, according to ava, that was just gwen wearing a mask and apparently really just nailing her impression of sarah. Except, of course, you know, sarah’s good heart. And would never have treated you so cruelly.

Xander: That was you? You used–you used sarah? You told me that you hated me, that I should stop obsessing about you and go back to gwen. My god. How could you have possibly have done that? We hit the bike trails every weekend

Gwen: Don’t you see? I was just so afraid of losing you. I’d already lost my father. He had turned his back on both of us.

Jennifer: So sarah’s life just didn’t matter, right?

Gwen: Kristen told me she was fine and that she was well taken care of.

Justin: Right. And you believed that because a sociopath’s word is her bond?

Gwen: No, I didn’t know what she was like. I didn’t know kristen the way that all of you did.

Abigail: Yeah, but you knew that sarah’s mother was worried sick, and, as it turns out, for good reason. And kristen did not just kidnap sarah. She drugged her. So it must’ve been really nice that you and kristen had that in common.

Gwen: I thought that that would make it better for sarah.

Xander: You thought that would make it…

[Yelling] Better?

[Quiet dramatic music]

Gwen: Okay. Okay. Kristen told me that she did it just to calm her down. She said that sarah went with her willingly.

Xander: And that makes it okay?

Gwen: Xander, she wasn’t suffering. She didn’t even know who she was.

Abigail: Because she was out of her mind. And you made sure that she stayed that way.

Jake: Here you go.

Ava: Thanks. You know, I should be used to it by now, but I really hate being arrested.

Ben: Yeah, it definitely breaks up a day, huh? Anyway, the two of you obviously have a lot to talk about, so I’m gonna shove off.

Jake: All right. Hey. Give ciara my best. Keep me posted, huh?

Ben: Will do, brother.

Jake: All right.

Ben: Ava, congrats. Enjoy your freedom.

Ava: Oh, believe me, I will. Oh, this is so much nicer than prison coffee.

Jake: So what happened? Huh? When rafe arrested you, he seemed pretty convinced he had you dead to rights. I think I remember the phrase “concrete evidence.”

Ava: Yeah. That’s just something gabi cooked up. You know, she really should learn not to play out of her league.

Gabi: So ava turned on one of her cronies, and you made a deal with her? After what she did to rafe?

Melinda: I’m not about to justify myself to you.

Gabi: [Snorts]

Melinda: Commissioner hernandez.

Rafe: Oh, see, I had a feeling that she would be here.

Melinda: As I was just explaining to your sister, ava vitali gave us a much higher-profile case to prosecute. Don’t take it personally.

Rafe: Oh, okay. “Don’t take it personally”? Don’t–she railroaded me, okay? Then you rolled over for that? And now you’re about to make another deal with her?

Gabi: ‘Cause there’s just the off chance that she’s lying because, you know, every single word that comes out of her mouth is a lie.

Melinda: I was actually just about to call you. Given the high-profile nature of this case, the arrest needs to be by the book. I want you to handle this personally.

Rafe: Sure. You want to tell me who it is that I will be arresting?

Melinda: Gwen rizczech.

Xander: What do you mean gwen made sure sarah stayed out of her mind?

Gwen: Xander, before she says anything, you have to understand, I was so afraid of losing you, I just panicked.

Abigail: Bitch, you did not panic. You saw that sarah was something that stood in the way of what you wanted, and so you made very careful plans, and you executed them flawlessly, like you have from the moment you set foot in this town, to give her her dues. The woman is an a+ planner.

Xander: Abigail, please, just… this is hard. Just tell me.

Abigail: I’m sorry. Chad, honey, do you remember when you told me that rolf said that he was certain that the antidote should’ve worked?

Chad: He couldn’t believe it when it didn’t and that it actually made sarah worse.

Abigail: That is because the injection that anna gave to sarah was not the antidote.

Xander: No.

Abigail: Yes. Gwen went to the hospital. She switched the syringes, and so sarah did not get the antidote. Instead, she got another dose of the original–well, I guess “poison” wouldn’t be too strong of a word for it, would it?

[Dramatic music]

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Abigail: I’m sorry if I have been a little emotional, but this all just feels very personal. Because, you see, gwen told ava that she had that original drug because it was left over from when she gave it to me. This is not new territory. This is not a tragic mistake. You know in detail what that drug will do to a person’s brain, and then you did it again, to someone you barely know, a good person who has done you no harm at all. And you planned it in advance, and you made sure you weren’t there when it happened. So, no, gwen, that’s not panic. That’s premeditation.

Jack: Is that true?

Jennifer: Jack!

Jack: Is that true? It is, isn’t it?

Abigail: All of it.

Gwen: Dad. You were gone.

Jack: Don’t ever call me that again. I forgave and forgave and forgave and believed that you could be saved, that everything that you ever did was my fault. But now this? There are no words. I am done with you.

[Melancholy music]

Gwen: [Crying] Xander? Are you done with me too?

Xander: You knew how much i loved sarah. You knew where she was. You knew what kristen had done to her. And then we finally got her back, and we were this close to saving her, to– to sarah being sarah again. You might as well have just put a bullet through her brain. You are the worst person I’ve ever known.

[Dramatic music]

Rafe: Well, I guess I better get over to that wedding before the mob turns on the bride.

Melinda: Okay, by the way, make sure you bring her in the front way, and make sure she’s cuffed. I wanna make sure that the “intruder” and the “spectator” get nice shots of her on the police station steps.

Rafe: Oh, you’re just craving those headlines, huh? Who would’ve thought?

Gabi: Uh-uh, not so fast. I’m not done with you yet.

Ava: I’m exhausted. But as promised, I’m taking the air mattress. I do not want you throwing your back out again.

Jake: I got a better option.

Ava: Yeah, what’s that?

Jake: Why don’t we share the bed?

[Somber music]

Gwen: Xander.

Abigail: Let it go. You’ve done enough already.

Gwen: This was none of your damned business.

Abigail: Actually, it was. Not only was sarah my cousin, but she was a human being, something you clearly know nothing about.

Gwen: Oh, you go to hell! You don’t fool me just because you cloud it all in this horton morality, horton gentility. I know that this is payback, and you and your old lady– you are no better than me! And your bogus, disgusting piety just makes sick!

Jennifer: You think you’re so tough?

Gwen: You make me sick!

Jennifer: Standing there, yelling in everyone’s face? I don’t care if I make you sick. You’re not tough. She’s tough. She has a backbone, and you are a coward. And she brought you down.

Gwen: Oh, you shut up.

Jennifer: No, I’m not gonna shut up. What else do you wanna say? Go ahead.

Abigail: Gwen. I believe you have a gentleman caller.

Gwen: Oh.

Rafe: Gwen rizczech. You are under arrest. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford one, one will be appointed for you. It’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.

Jennifer: Are you all right?

Jack: No. But I will be.

Jennifer: At least it’s over, jack.

Jack: Yeah. It is over.

Abigail: Dad…

Jack: No, no, no, you don’t have to say anything. We’re good. You did what you had to do.

Abigail: I didn’t want to be right, but she had to be stopped.

Jennifer: Let’s just go home, all right? Let’s just head out and just go.

Gwen: Oh, so you can break out the bubbly? Yeah? Have a bit of a gloat?

Jennifer: No.

Gwen: Why? Why? I mean, this is what you always wanted, isn’t it? Me, out of the picture. To get rid of me like your rotten mom did to me.

Rafe: Okay, let’s get going, shall we?

Gwen: Just so you know, your precious grandmother– I killed that old bitch on purpose.

Rafe: Come on! Let’s go.

Melinda: Get your hands off of me. Are you nuts?

Gabi: No. No, but I’m not gonna sit around and watch ava vitali get off scot-free.

Melinda: Is that a threat, ms. Hernandez?

Gabi: Excuse me, that’s mrs. Dimera to you. And I don’t make threats. I make waves, like the one I’m about to make to your boss, mayor carver. I can’t wait to see what he thinks when he finds out that you let ava vitali free after what she did to rafe… with your help.

Melinda: Bitch.

Ava: Are you sure about this?

Jake: Why not? Both adults.

Ava: Yeah, maybe the fact that we are both adults is why not.

Jake: What? You never shared a bed with anybody platonically?

Ava: Actually, no. What about you?

Jake: Yeah, no.

[Both laugh] First time for everything, huh?

Ava: Guess so.

Jake: All right.

Ava: All right.

[Sultry music]

Jake: Well?

Ava: Night, jake.

Jake: Night, ava.

[Dramatic music]

Jennifer: Abigail, what’s wrong? What did gwen just say to you?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jennifer: Hey. Well, it’s been hours. Did you talk to trask? Did she make a deal with ava?

Abigail: I wasn’t able to get ahold of her. I’m assuming she’s still thinking it over.

Jennifer: Honey, what– what is there to think over? Ava admitted that gwen was the one that knocked you out and then helped christy kidnap you.

Abigail: Hopefully, hopefully trask will just grant ava immunity and then she’ll just spill the rest of it. But in the meantime, we st– we got to keep quiet and we can’t tip gwen off.

Jennifer: Oh, you’re right.

Gwen: So how do I look?

Abigail: Beautiful. Beautiful. Doesn’t she mom?

Jennifer: Yes. I can find– hardly find words.

Gwen: I can’t believe it’s finally happening. I’m gonna marry the man of my dreams.

Xander: [Sighs] What a glorious evening. Tonight I’m gonna marry your incredible daughter and then spend the rest of my life trying to make her happy. Isn’t that right, dad?

Jack: I think I told you “dad” is not happening.

Xander: Hm. Pops?

Jack: No.

Xander: Papa? Papi? El padre?

Jack: You know, there’s still time for me to stop this wedding.

Xander: You can’t do that. You’re my best man.

[Cell phone ringing] It’s maggie. It must be about sarah. Hello?

Bonnie: [Clears throat]

Justin: Wow! Ooh, la la.

[Both chuckle] What’s the occasion?

Bonnie: What’s the occasion? Am I not your plus one to the double wedding?

Justin: Well, I’m the officiant, not a guest.

Bonnie: Well, okay, but honestly, honestly, I want to be there for nancy. It’s gonna be super hard for her to watch her ex-husband marry someone else, and especially that creepy leo stark.

Justin: Yeah, I’m not a big fan of leo’s either, especially after what he did to sonny.

Bonnie: You know, it’s a shame sonny couldn’t change craig’s mind.

Justin: It is. I guess there’s nothing anyone can say or do to change his mind about leo.

Craig: Hey. Why aren’t you dressed?

Leo: Hang on a second. Let me drink this in.

Craig: What are you doing?

Leo: I’m documenting my big day for my socials.

Craig: Yeah?

Leo: I need all of my friends to be adequately jealous and filled with a severe case of fomo.

Craig: Well, can we make our priorities a little different so we’re not late to our own wedding.

Leo: Don’t worry about it. It’s fine.

Craig: Are you sure?

Leo: Yes, I’m sure. But I cannot have you see me before my grand entrance down the aisle. So head down to the square and I will see you at the altar.

Craig: Okay.

Leo: Come on, come on. Why aren’t you picking up? The wedding is about to start and I really need to talk to you.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Xander: Thank you so much, maggie. I’ll see you soon, yeah?


Jack: What did she say?

Xander: She just wanted to wish me well. It was very gracious of her.

Jack: And sarah?

Xander: Well, there’s no change in her condition. Her mind is still all jumbled up in the past.

Jack: I’m very sorry to hear that.

Xander: Yeah, me too.

Jennifer: Hey.

Jack: Hey.

Jennifer: Don’t you know it’s impolite to be more handsome than the groom? No offense, xander.

Xander: None taken.

Jennifer: How are you feeling?

Xander: Like the luckiest man in the world.

Jack: Where are my two daughters?

Jennifer: They are in the lobby getting ready.

Xander: I didn’t see them go in.

Jennifer: Well, gwen thought we should sneak through the back so you wouldn’t get a look at her dress.

Xander: My bride, she always has a trick of her sleeve, doesn’t she?

Jennifer: Yes, she does.

Gwen: Thank you.

Abigail: Just doing my job.

Gwen: No, I mean, thank you for being here for me now as my matron of honor. I know it was under duress.

Abigail: I’m exactly where I need to be and so are you.

Gwen: Where’s chad?

Abigail: He and my cousin, sonny, had to make a quick trip out of town.

Gwen: So he won’t be coming tonight?

Abigail: We were hoping that he was gonna get back in time for the wedding, but it just doesn’t really look like that’s gonna happen.

Brady: I need your help with something.

Justin: What is it?

Brady: I need you to draw out the ceremony as long as possible. Whatever you do, do not let craig and leo tie the knot.

Justin: Can I ask why?

Brady: Let’s just say that chloe and I hope that this match made in hell goes up in flames.

Chloe: [Laughing] And I’m so sorry that joy and parker can’t be here today–

Craig: Oh, last minute, honey; it’s okay. I, um– I did invite your mom. I think that might be a little too much of an ask though.

Chloe: Yeah, yeah, maybe. Maybe too much. I don’t know–

Bonnie: Hey. Hey. Thought you’re gonna bring your hot new beau. Did your date not go well?

Nancy: Oh, no, it went great. We’re–we’re having dinner tomorrow night.

Bonnie: Second date, oh, score. Why isn’t he escorting you to the wedding?

Nancy: Well, because I thought I would go solo and stand on my own two feet.

Bonnie: Good for you. But you know, if you get a little weak, I’m always here to hold you up, all right?

Nancy: Thank you.

Craig: I think it’s time we get this show in the road, huh?

Xander: Couldn’t agree more.

Justin: Okay, two weddings coming right up. With depression, you just feel…blah.

Gwen: Is there something that you are not telling me?

Abigail: About what?

Gwen: About chad not being here?

Abigail: It’s nothing to do with you, I promise.

Gwen: Good, I’m glad. You may not believe this, but… I am really glad that you are here for me today. Obviously, we’ve had our ups and our downs, mostly downs, but you’re my sister. And I’m looking at today as a fresh start for both of us.

Chloe: Hey, we’re about to start. Are you ready, gwen?

Gwen: I am.

Jack: You look radiant, sweetheart.

Gwen: Thank you, dad. My goodness, after longing for a father for so long, to know that you’re gonna walk me down the aisle. Sorry, I’m gonna get all sentimental.

Jack: You’re marrying the man you love; you’re surrounded by your family. Can’t get more sentimental than that.

Gwen: Guess, I’m just not used to being happy.

Jack: Get used to it. I love you, gwen.

Gwen: I love you too, dad.

[Both laugh]

Chloe: Hey, have you seen leo?

Abigail: No, I haven’T.

Chloe: [Sighs] Is too much to hope that that lowlife creep got cold feet?

[Quartet playing]

[Quartet plays “wedding march”]

[Electronic music plays]

Leo: I hope I didn’t show you up.


Gwen: Well, it’s nothing I wasn’t expecting

Leo: You look stunning, gwen.

Gwen: And you, my darling friend, you look absolutely to die for.

Leo: Thank you, my dear. By the way, great job drawing up that prenup so fast.

Justin: Trust me, it was my pleasure.

[Clears throat] Family, friends, we are gathered here in this iconic square to celebrate the union of not just one couple, but two, not just two souls, but four. So on behalf of alexandros cook, gwen rizczech, dr. Craig wesley, matthew cooper, aka leo stark, I thank you all for being here and sharing in their very special day. Now, as most of you know, marriage is an honorable institution and should not be entered into lightly or unadvisedly. If any person here can show just cause why either couple should not be joined in holy matrimony, let them speak now or forever hold their peace. All right. Moving along.

Nancy: Wait. I have something to say.

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Bonnie: Nancy, what are you doing?

Leo: What is she doing?

Craig: I have no idea.

Chloe: Mom, this is not the right time.

Nancy: Sweetheart, it’s all right. I need to say this. Craig wesley, though we are no longer married, we will always be family. Nothing will ever change that. So I just want to say from the bottom of my heart, I wish you all the happiness in the world.

Craig: Thank you, nancy. I can’t tell you how much that means to me.

Leo: Yes, thank you for saying that in the middle of my wedding.

Nancy: Oh, and by the way, I just want to say for the record, I have a date tomorrow night.

Bonnie: And he’s quite a stud.

Craig: Justin.

Justin: Okay, well, I think what nancy’s lovely speech highlighted is that we are all here to share and support to these two couples. There’s not a large crowd, but it’s certainly a devoted one. Jack deveraux looking dashing, standing up for his friend and soon to be son-in-law. Jack’s doing double duty tonight. He walked his daughter, gwen, down the aisle as well. You must be very excited tonight.

Jack: I certainly am.

Justin: Yes. And abigail dimera standing up for her sister, gwen. And by the way, you look especially lovely tonight.

Abigail: Thank you.

Justin: Chloe lane, here for her father, craig.

Leo: Are we doing roll call now?

Justin: And chloe, of course, as usual, looking as radiant as ever. And leo, I’m wondering, uh, it doesn’t appear you have anyone here with you today.

Leo: Well, I would have, of course, but there were some scheduling snafus. You know how it goes. But now that I think about it, I should have a best man of my own, so, um… brady, I now pronounce you my best man.

Brady: Me?

Leo: Yes, you, big guy. Make sure you have a nice speech prepared for the reception. Can’t wait to hear all the wonderful things you have to say about me.

Justin: Okay. Now that we have acknowledged the wedding party, perhaps it’s time for a prayer.

Leo: A prayer? We’re not here for a sermon, padre, we’re here to get married.

Justin: Are you sure?

Leo: Uh-huh.

Justin: A little invocation, or maybe even a long one, never hurt anyone.

Leo: How about later? You can, invocate your little tush off after you marry us.

Justin: All right. Okay. Well, then I guess it’s time for the vows. Why don’t we start with gwen and xander?

Gwen: I think that actually leo and craig should go first, because, well, they’ve been so generous to share this beautiful venue with us and– well, xander and I are just so grateful.

Leo: Gwennie, I would do anything for you.

Justin: Okay, ah, well, before we start the official vows, why don’t– is there anything the grooms would like to say? Leo, I’m sure you have something to share with everyone.

Leo: Well, I never miss an opportunity to speak in front of a crowd. Anyway, I would just like to thank you all for coming. Not as large a group as I was expecting, but it’s all about quality, not quantity, right? Anyway, this is the happiest day of my life truly. Standing up here with my dearest guinevere, and her betrothed, xander. If my situation were different, I would be green with jealousy, because, well, need I explain. I mean, the bod, the punim, mm. Gwennie you are a very lucky lady. In any case, there is only one man for me, and that is you, craig. Before we met, I was aimless, lost. My life was dark and empty, and you filled it with your beautiful life. You shone upon me a love and a warmth that I’ve been searching for my entire life. I stand before you not only fabulous, but also happy, fulfilled, and eager to share the rest of my life with you. You’re my everything, my raison d’tre. And I will love you forever.

Justin: Craig, do you have anything to say?

Craig: Uh… well, if I did, I probably wouldn’t be able to get it out. Ditto will have to suffice. Justin.

Justin: Okay, um… then I guess there’s nothing more to do but move on to the official vows.

[Clears throat] Do you, leo stark…


Craig: Bless you.

Justin: Sorry.

[Sneezes] I am so sorry. Sorry. Okay, do you, leo stark, take this man, craig wesley, to be your lawfully wedded husband?

Leo: Hell yeah, I do.

Justin: And do you, craig wesley, take this man, leo stark, to be your lawfully wedded husband.

Craig: I do.

Chloe: Oh, my god. It’s really happening.

Justin: Do we have rings?

Craig: Ah. Yes. Chloe?

Justin: Leo, put the ring on craig’s finger and repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed.

Leo: With this ring, I thee wed.

Justin: Craig, place the ring on leo’s finger and repeat after me. With this ring, I thee wed.

Craig: With this ring, I thee wed.

Justin: Okey dokey. By the power vested in me, I now pronounce you husbands–

Chad: Stop! Stop.

Justin: Chad?

Chad: Hey, baby, you look great. Ah, this wedding cannot happen.

Gwen: Chad, don’t do this.

Chad: Gwen, this is not about you; this is about leo.

Craig: What?

Chad: Craig, there’s something that you need to know.

Leo: Chadwick, sit down. There is nothing you can do to stop this marriage from happening.

Chad: Oh, really? How about the fact that you’re already married?

[All gasping]

[Dramatic music]

My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Craig: You’re married?

Leo: Of course not. This is completely ridiculous. Don’t listen to anything he has to say. This is another insulting and degrading attempt to break us up, all because he is disdainful of the intense and passionate love we share, all because he refuses to believe that somebody can change for the better. Distinguished guests, every word out of this man’s mouth is a lie.

Chad: Okay, craig and everyone else, I know you have every reason to doubt me, so don’t take my word for it. Why don’t you listen to world-renowned drag queen, jackie cox.

Jackie: Hello, salem. Greetings. Hi. Sorry to crash the party, but I do love some wedding drama.

Craig: Who the hell is this?

Chad: This is leo’s bff. I met jackie in arizona last year when leo tried to abscond with that emerald.

Leo: Allegedly.

Jackie: Clearly, I left quite an impression.

Leo: Jackie, what are you doing here?

Jackie: Well, I was in new york performing my hit one-woman show, “jackievision,” now on tour, when sonny and chad showed up backstage.

Chad: Sonny got a work call on the way here, otherwise he would’ve had a front row seat. But anyway, we tracked down jackie be–

Jackie: Uh, blue eyes, let me tell the story.

Chad: Right, sorry.

Jackie: The boys made their pitch and offered to fly me on a private jet right here to salem so that I could speak my truth.

Craig: And what is that exactly?

Jackie: Just as chad said, leo is already married– wedded, hitched, boo’d up.

Leo: How would that even be possible? I wouldn’t have been able to get a marriage license.

Jackie: Oh, leo, leo. We both know it’s because you married me using your birth name, super duper matthew cooper. I added the super duper part.

Leo: Jackie, can we go somewhere and talk?

Jackie: Mm, I think this is actually the perfect setting.

Chloe: This is more than I’d hoped for.

Craig: Leo, what the hell is going on?

Leo: Well, well, clearly, chad has paid jackie off. Why else would you be doing this? Why are you spreading these terrible lies?

Jackie: [Laughs heartily] Save it, sister. Read it and try not to weep.

Jennifer: Is this for real?

Jack: I don’t know, but I find this strangely riveting.

Craig: It’s says here that matthew cooper is lawfully wedded to darius rose. Who the hell is darius rose?

Leo: There is no darius rose. This is made up.

Jackie: Oh, no? No darius rose? Hold my purse, mary poppins. You and I need to set the record straight, so to speak. We women are in the know about everything.

Jackie: So you see, I’m not merely jackie cox, drag queen, entertainer, dancer, comedian, billy reid enthusiast. I’m all also darius rose, darius rose cooper, doting husband to one mr. Matthew cooper.

Craig: You’re married to him–her?

Jackie: I’m out of drag. You can use he/him or they/them pronouns. And thanks for asking.

Craig: Leo, tell me.

Leo: Okay, fine. Darius and I were married–

Jackie: Are married.

Nancy: Oh, my god.

Bonnie: Oh, my god.

Leo: But it’s not what it looks like.

Craig: Well, then what is it?

Leo: Darius–darius needed a green card.

Bonnie: He doesn’t seem foreign to me.

Leo: He’s from canada. If he wanted to live and work in this country, we had to get married. I did it as a favor for a friend.

Craig: Okay, so you’re just saying that you’re friends, right?

Leo: Well, we– we did hook up a few times, then we realized we were better off as sisters.

Craig: Okay. Is that it? Is that true?

Jackie: Yes. These days our relationship is strictly platonic. No hanky, even less panky.

Chloe: Okay, well that doesn’t change the fact that leo just tried to commit bigamy. If chad and jackie hadn’t just shown up, you’d be roped into some fraudulent marriage. Dad, come on.

Leo: I’m sorry. Craig, I tried to tell you, but you proposed out of the blue and it was so sweet, and then the wedding got moved up and I just got so wrapped up with imagining fabulous outfits and honeymoons. I really did try and tell you, but it’s not a real marriage.

Brady: He still lied to you.

Leo: To protect a friend. If–if I divorce darius, he loses his green card, he gets sent back to canada. Do you know how cold it is up there when you like to wear miniskirts? They eat moose.

Jackie: Matty, babe, no trash talking a-boot the motherland.

Leo: Ugh, sorry. Very polite people and you know I’m a huge hockey fan.

Craig: Okay, this is obviously a very complicated situation.

Chloe: It’s not that complicated. Dad, come on.

Craig: Leo, I am– I’m not happy that you lied to me, but I get it.

Chloe: What?

Leo: Thank you. Craig, you are a true empath.

Chloe: [Sighs]

Brady: You know what? It doesn’t matter whether– whether you forgive him or not. He’s still married. You can’t go through with this wedding.

Craig: So justin, is there anything you can do to help figure this out?

Justin: Well, I can look at some options, but it’s gonna take some time.

Craig: So this can’t happen today? Is that what you’re saying?

Justin: No. I’m sorry. I can’t sanction this marriage.

Leo: [Sighs] Well, as disappointing as that is, maybe it’s for the best. I mean, look at these angry, judgmental faces. When we do get married, it should be around people who support and love us, not a gaggle of haters.

Chad: Seriously? You’re blaming us?

Leo: Let’s get out of here. Let’s let gwennie and xander continue on with their wedding.

Craig: Fine with me.

Bonnie: Oh, come on, craig!

Nancy: Bonnie–

Bonnie: No, he’s taking him for a ride!

Leo: Will you all get this through your judgy heads? I married darius because I would go to the ends of the earth to help a friend. When I marry craig, it will be for love and love only.

Chad: Yeah, no. I’m not buying that. Darius, tell him.

Leo: Darius, I swear to god.

Craig: Wait, there’s more?

Chad: Jackie, you said you would tell the truth, all of it.

Jackie: Fine. I’ll tell it, but only because I’m a big fan of honesty. Well, at least in certain situations. Anyway, leo doesn’t love you, doc. Sure, he thinks you’re good-looking for your age and have a decent sense of humor, little corny sometimes, but at least you’re not a total sourpuss, or so he tells me. But really what he cares about is that you’re a doctor, that you rake in the big bucks.

Craig: And how does he know this?

Jackie: Because I am leo’s confidant. And from what he’s shared with moi, your entire relationship has been one big flimflam. We hit the bike trails every weekend

Leo: A flimflam? Who’s ever even heard of that expression? What is it from, the dark ages?

Jackie: Mid-16th century, scandinavian origin. It means fraud.

Craig: There is nothing flimflam about leo’s and my relationship.

Jackie: Look, doc, you seem like a decent guy, and I’m proud of you for owning who you are. But to leo, you’re nothing more than a mark.

Leo: He’s lying. I swear, he is.

Jackie: Matty, babe, be real. You’ve been targeting him since the moment you met him at that medical convention.

Craig: Wh– how do you know about that?

Jackie: Because I’m leo’s confidant, remember? When he came home that night, on cloud nine I might add, talking about this rich, hot doctor, we discussed over several appletinis how someone in your position, older, closeted, would be easily susceptible to leo’s charms.

Chad: So they concocted a plan to get you to marry him, illegally, of course, because obviously, well, they’re married, then file for divorce and take you to the cleaners.

Leo: They’re–they’re lying. Craig, I would never do that to you. I signed the prenup, remember?

Jackie: You want to see the text messages?

Chad: Yeah, I’ve seen ’em. They’re not pretty.

Gwen: Wait a minute. If this is true, why would you explode your own plan? Why would you stab leo in the back before getting your own payoff?

Jackie: Because he stabbed me in the back first.

Chad: Brady texted me about the aforementioned prenup, that leo gave up his right to craig’s money.

Jackie: Our money–half of that was supposed to be mine. You screwed me over, matty!

Leo: I tried to call and tell you, but your mailbox was full. My god, do you never delete messages?

Craig: So it’s true? This has all been a scam.

Leo: No, no. It was in the beginning, but along the way, I fell for you. I really did.

Chloe: Ugh, please.

Leo: Chloe, it’s not a lie. That’s why when you so rudely shoved that prenup in my face, I signed it. I didn’t care about your money, I just wanted you. Craig, please look at me. I’m telling you the truth.

Craig: When?

Leo: When what?

Craig: You said you fell in love with me. When did that happen?

Leo: I’m not sure. It might have been when you were defending me to your daughter and telling her how much I meant to you. It might have been when we were lying in bed talking about our future. Or maybe it was when you proposed to me. I don’t know, but somewhere along the way, you stopped being a mark, and you started being the man that I love, please… please, can you forgive me? Can we please move past this?

[Dramatic music]

It’s my 4:05, the-show-must-go-on,

Chad: Thank you for coming, darius. You really helped us out.

Jackie: Thanks. Though I have to say, I feel pretty guilty for wrecking leo like that.

Abigail: Telling craig the truth was the right thing to do.

Jackie: Even if I wasn’t doing it for purely altruistic reasons?

Chad: My driver will take you to the jet whenever you’re ready. You should be able to make it back to new york in plenty of time for your show.

Jackie: I like your style, dimera.

Chad: Back at you, jackie.

Abigail: We want to come see your show one of these days.

Jackie: Anytime. Come as my guests. You’ll have to pay full price, of course. Jackie cox doesn’t do freebies. And bring cash for tips. And there’s a two drink minimum. And don’t forget belinda chinashop.

[Cellphone ringing]

Abigail: Excuse me. Sorry. I got to take this real quick.

Leo: Get out of my way.

Brady: You are not going anywhere near craig again. You understand me? It’s over, leo.

Chloe: Thanks. Dad, I’m so sorry.

Craig: Yeah? Why is that? I mean, you got what you wanted. You and your friends, you stopped me from marrying leo and made a fool out of me in the process.

Chloe: No, it wasn’t about that, dad. You–you’re not a fool. You fell in love. Okay?

Craig: Yeah. Yeah, I fell in love.

[Crying] It hurts so much.

Chloe: I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I’m sorry.

Craig: [Sobbing]

Chloe: I’m sorry.

Nancy: Bonnie, I– I just want to go comfort craig, but it’s not my job anymore.

Bonnie: Oh, honey, I’m sure chloe’s doing a good job. What do you say we blow this pop stand and get us a drink? Mm-hmm. Come on.

Chad: Abigail’s been on the phone for a while. Do you know who she’s talking to or what she’s talking about?

Jack: Well, maybe it’s “spectator” business, maybe she’s just following up on a big lead.

Jennifer: There’s something that the two of you should probably know.

Jack: Okay.

Jennifer: I mean, I wasn’t gonna say anything, but you should really just be prepared for what is about–

Xander: I know salem weddings are notorious for drama, but I didn’t have bigamy and a drag queen wedding crash on my bingo card, did you?

Gwen: Did you really have to humiliate him so publicly?

Chad: Okay, my intention was to tell craig the truth. He was about to make the mistake of his life.

Justin: Well, I think it’s clear that leo and craig are out of the wedding. So what do you two want to do?

Gwen: I mean, I suppose there’s no reason why we can’t still get married.

Abigail: Actually, there is.

Brady: Hey.

Chloe: Hey.

Brady: Here to celebrate?

Chloe: Celebrate what?

Brady: Don’t be modest. Slapping leo with that prenup. That was brilliant.

Chloe: I thought so too.

Brady: So how did he take it? Has he left town already?

Chloe: Nope.

Brady: What happened? I know that money-grubbing little creep didn’t sign the thing.

Chloe: That’s exactly what that money-grubbing little creep did.

Leo: How can I be upset? I would do anything for you, craig. Don’t you know that by now?

Craig: Yes, of course I do. I just felt like I put you on the spot insisting you sign that prenup.

Leo: You didn’t insist. You asked, very politely. And I hope you know that the reason I hesitated wasn’t about the money. I felt ambushed. Yet another attempt by your daughter and the haters to put me on a spit. If I hadn’t signed it, you could’ve ruined our wedding day, maybe even our whole marriage, because chloe and everyone else would’ve continued to think that I’m a gold digger. So I caved. I don’t like caving. I’m a very proud man.

Craig: And a selfless one. Just when I think I could’ve love you more. Thanks, babe. I promise you won’t regret it.

Jack: You drove all the way to o’hare to pick me up. You don’t have to carry my luggage.

Xander: You said you’d be my best man, jack. I owe you.

Jennifer: Xander! Gram’s garden looks absolutely stunning, and jack tells me it’s because of you.

Xander: Oh, I said I’d look after it.

Jennifer: I am just so glad to be home. Although I know that we missed so much while we were away.

Xander: Including some very sad news.

Jack: But we’re here to celebrate the good news.

Jennifer: Yes, and the fact that abigail’s home safe.

Jack: And gwen’s matron of honor. Let’s hope that this means that the two of them are finally patching things up.

Gwen: Abigail? What are you doing here?

Abigail: I heard ava vitali had been arrested, and I wanted to talk to her.

Gwen: Why? What could you and ava possibly have to talk about?

Ava: The person who attacked you was your sister, gwen.

Abigail: A lot.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Abigail: I was hoping that ava might finally give me the name of the person who knocked me out at the air strip and helped get me kidnapped. Told her she might be able to use the information to leverage a plea deal.

Gwen: I see. And did she tell you what you wanted to know?

Abigail: Sadly, no. So what are you doing here at the police station on your wedding day?

Jack: So where are my two daughters?

Xander: Actually, they’re taking care of some wedding business, but they should be back here soon.

Jennifer: Wait, you do know you are not supposed to see your bride on wedding day.

Jack: Right?

Xander: Yeah. Sarah insisted on that, and we all know what happened to sarah, don’t we?

Jennifer: I talked to aunt maggie. It’s really terrible.

Xander: I just feel like if I’d been there that night with her, I could’ve protected her. And, well, anyway, I’m not very fond of that superstition.

Jack: It’s understandable.

Xander: And anyway, gwen and I woke up this morning and decided today was the day. We feel like we’ve already had enough bad luck and that finding each other is the beginning of a better life.

Jack: I really hope you do.

Xander: So shall I fill you all in on the details?

Jennifer: Yes! Please!

Jack: Yes! Of course, please! That would be helpful, yes.

Xander: Well, we’re having the ceremony tonight, in the square. And you’re getting two weddings for the price of one.

Jack: Two?

Jennifer: What? That’s exactly what we did. Who’s the other bride and groom?

Xander: Gwen is the only bride. A friend of hers is marrying his boyfriend. There’s going to be three grooms.

Craig: Pretty quiet on the way over here. It’s not like you.

Leo: Just thinking.

Craig: About the prenup.

Leo: You were right. Signing it was the only way to get chloe and sonny and everyone else to believe what you and I already know. I’m not marrying you for your money. I’m marrying you because you’re the love of my life.

Brady: Okay, this states if leo and craig break up, leo gets nothing. You sure leo read this?

Chloe: He did. Every word.

Brady: And he signed it?

Chloe: You know why? Because my father convinced him to.

Brady: Okay, well, at least you have the satisfaction of knowing leo can’t screw your dad over. I mean, justin writes up a good prenup. This thing has no loopholes in it.

Chloe: Yeah, well, brady, is it possible that we were wrong? Is it possible that leo stark wasn’t after my father for his money? What if he’s actually marrying him for love?

Craig: Hey. You and I are getting married in a few hours. I think maybe we should try and get ready.

Leo: True. My toilette does take a while.

Craig: Yes, but there’s only one bathroom. We could shower together, maybe save some time.

Leo: I don’t think that would be much of a time save. Besides, there is something I want to talk to you about before the wedding.

Craig: Okay? You look serious. What is it?

Leo: I have a confession to make. It’s my 4:05, the-show-must-go-on,

Gwen: I came here because I was looking for you.

Abigail: Oh, well, when I came in, you seemed surprised to see me. And what’s with the hat? It’s april.

Gwen: Oh, right, yeah. Just trying to avoid frizzy hair on my wedding day, you know? I came here because I couldn’t find you, and so I phoned “the spectator” office, and they said you were here, covering a story.

Abigail: I see.

Gwen: And the reason I looked surprised is because I didn’t know that ava had been arrested.

Abigail: She has, yeah. She’s been charged with planting the evidence against rafe.

Gwen: And these charges– they don’t have anything to do with what happened to you?

Abigail: No, no, and like I said, you know, she just– she won’t give me the name of the person who helped her do it.

Gwen: I bet it was that pilot. I think perhaps she’s afraid of him.

Abigail: Maybe. Yeah.

Gwen: Right, well, if you’re finished here, shall we go? Because xander’s gone to pick up jack, dad, at the airport. And, well, I know he would love to see you. I think he’d be rather pleased to know that you’re standing up with me. Are you ready?

Abigail: Yes. My phone is vibrating. Hang on. Let’s see. Oh, it’s the office. They’re wanting an update. Do you know what? Can I just–I’ll just catch you at the house, and I’m not gonna be long, I promise.

Gwen: Yeah, of course.

Abigail: Okay. Bye.

Gwen: Bye.

Abigail: Hi, yeah, I’m just down here at the squad room. I just got done interviewing ava vitali.

[Uneasy music]

Ava: So, did you convince the da to give me a deal? Because that is the only way I’m giving you the dirt on your sister.

Craig: Okay, whatever it is, whatever you did, just tell me, all right? Tell me. You’re scaring me. What is it?

Leo: It’s about the guy that gwen is gonna marry.

Craig: What about him?

Leo: His name is xander cook, and I sort of kind of–

Craig: Sort of kind of what?

Leo: Tried to get him to go to bed with me.

Jac: Craig wesley is getting married?

Jennifer: He left nancy…

Both: For a man?

Xander: Yeah. A guy named leo stark.

Jennifer: What? The same leo stark that caused so many problems for will and sonny?

Xander: Yeah, that’s the guy.

Jack: And now craig is getting married to him?

Xander: Yeah, I guess craig had been in the closet his whole life, and now he’s making up for lost time.

Jennifer: No, that’s just poor judgment.

Xander: I wouldn’t know. I’ve never even laid eyes on craig.

Jack: And now you’re going to have a double wedding with the man?

Xander: Because leo and gwen–it turns out, they’re old friends.

Jack: Really?

Jennifer: I mean, I was never crazy about craig, the way he stole my brother’s job, but I mean, nancy worshiped him. She must be devastated by all this.

Nancy: I don’t know why I let you talk me into this, mommy. Look, it is one thing to like a guy’s picture, but it’s another thing to meet him face to face. Okay, I’ll try to believe that. Okay, I will believe that. And, yes, I will repeat after you. I am a great catch. I am charming. I am adorable. And the man I’m about to meet is damn lucky that he swiped right on me. Okay, I’m going in right now to face the… music.

[Lilting jazz music]

Clyde: Nancy?

[Soft music]

Clyde: Hi, I’m clyde. Clyde weston.

Nancy: I’m nancy, nancy miller.

Clyde: Are you sure?

Nancy: I’m sorry. I’m just a little nervous.

Clyde: Well, some of us hide it better than others. Perhaps we should sit down before our waitress runs us over with a big bowl of chowder?

Nancy: Oh, we can’t have that.

Clyde: Right.

Nancy: Oh, thank you.

Clyde: You’re welcome. Well… your picture on the website.

Nancy: What about it?

Clyde: You’re much prettier in person.

Nancy: Thank you. Your picture of you was very handsome, and your picture didn’t lie.

Clyde: Well, thank you. Guess we’re off to a pretty good start here, aren’t we?

Nancy: Oh, I hope so. This is the first time I’ve been on a date in a really long time.

Clyde: Yeah, your profile said that you’re recently back on the market. So am I.

Nancy: I’m divorced. And what’s your excuse?

Clyde: I just got out of prison.

Brady: Look, chloe, I don’t mean to sound cynical, especially for your sake or your dad’s, but the idea that leo is actually in love with craig– I don’t buy it. I don’t think a guy like leo changes his spots.

Chloe: Well, I’m cynical about leo as well, but if he is the gold digger that we think he is, then why did he sign that prenup? Unless he, what, plans on staying married to my father long enough to spend all of his money?

Brady: That’s a possibility. I suppose.

Chloe: I don’t know. Bottom line is, we thought of everything, and nothing worked. It always seems like leo’s one step ahead. I don’t know. I guess leo stark’s going to be my step-daddy, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

Brady: Actually…

Chloe: Actually what?

Brady: Maybe there is.

Craig: So you’re saying you cheated on me?

Leo: Oh, god, no. No, I would never do that. Didn’t I make that clear the night you caught me in bed with chad?

Craig: Yeah, yeah, but you just said that there’s–

Leo: This was years ago, long before I met you. I will admit, I was a bit of a player back then.

Craig: Mm-hmm. What happened?

Leo: Nothing. Xander’s straight.

Craig: But you wanted something to happen?

Leo: Craig. Trust me, when you meet this tall, dark, and handsome scotsman, you will understand why I wanted to get under his kilt.

Jennifer: Are the two of you going to be wearing kilts tonight?

Xander: Oh, I decided to spare jack that. No, I got tuxes for us.

Jack: Oh, my bony kneecaps thank you.

Xander: Actually, speaking of, we should get going. We need to try the monkey suits on.

Jack: Right!

Gwen: My goodness, you’re here! Hi. You’re here. I’m so happy you’re gonna be here for the wedding. Oh.

Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Gwen: Oh. You know, actually, I was wondering. Would you maybe walk down the aisle and give me away?

Jack: Give you away? I feel like I just got you. Yes, I would be honored to give you away, yes.

Gwen: Oh.

Xander: And when it’s all over, you’ll be my father-in-law. Like the sound of that.

Jack: So do I.

Gwen: Everything is so perfect.

Abigail: Guess who showed up when I was out in the squad room. Gwen.

Ava: How’d that go?

Abigail: Well, I didn’t give you up, if that’s what you’re asking. I told her you wouldn’t tell me who helped you kidnap me.

Ava: Well, that was a good move, because she was probably on her way in here to talk me into keeping my mouth shut.

Abigail: Well, she didn’t expect to see me, I know that.

Ava: So what kept you from telling gwen that I ratted her out?

Abigail: I’m not tipping her off until you give me the whole story.

Ava: That depends on what the da said.

Abigail: She’s interested. But she needs more information.

Ava: Okay. Tell her to come talk to me.

Abigail: I have a better idea. You tell me the story, and I go back to her.

Ava: I already told you gwen knocked you out. What more do you need?

Abigail: You made it very clear that gwen has done worse than that, a lot worse. I want the details.

Ava: Are you certain that the da’s willing to make a deal?

Abigail: Absolutely.

Ava: Great. Then you get me that deal, and then I will give you whatever you need to bury your sister.

Jack: It’s good to see the two of you looking so happy.

Gwen: Yeah, we are, aren’t we?

Xander: Definitely. But we should go get those tuxes fitted. I don’t want to be late for my own wedding.

Jack: Right, right, right.

Gwen: So, you know the next time that I see you–

Xander: I’ll be making an honest woman of you.

Gwen: Yeah, we’ll see about that.

Jennifer: Have fun!

[Soft music]

Gwen: Hey. I’m very happy that you’re gonna be at the wedding tonight.

Jennifer: Yes, I am too. I’m very happy that we have some time alone. There’s something I wanna say to you.

You never know

what opportunities

Clyde: Me doing time, being an ex-con, is that a deal breaker for you? Because if it is, I certainly understand. I see.

Nancy: No, no. You just took me aback, clyde. It’s not a deal breaker.

Clyde: Are you sure?

Nancy: You know, for more than 30 years, I thought that I was married to the perfect man. But he cheated on me. I knew that there was something wrong between us, but, well, I kept asking him, and he kept lying to me. I just met you, and you have been honest and open with me. And I respect that.

Brady: So do you remember yesterday, when we overheard leo talking to someone on the phone named jackie?

Chloe: Yeah.

Brady: Well, sonny seems to think that might be jackie cox. Now, this is a crony of leo’S. Sonny’s pretty sure that the two of them were in cahoots during that peacock scam last year. So if leo is actually trying to scam your father, this jackie cox might know about it, even be in on it.

Chloe: How do we find this jackie?

Brady: Sonny and chad are actually on their way to new york right now to try to track her down.

Chloe: Well, my dad’s wedding is in a couple hours, and this seems like a long shot.

Brady: Chloe, it may be the only shot we have.

Leo: I don’t want there to be any secrets between us. So I thought I’d better tell you you’d be sharing your wedding with a man I lusted after. You mad?

Craig: No. I appreciate you being honest with me.

Leo: Oh, craig. Nobody has ever cared for me the way you do.

Craig: It’s because you make me happy. I love you.

Leo: Maybe we do have time for a shower.

[Knocking at door]

Craig: Oh, boy.

Leo: Oh, well, if it isn’t the groom-to-be.

Xander: Hi, leo. Can we come in?

Leo: Why not?

Craig: Jack deveraux.

Jack: Hello, craig.

Leo: You two know each other?

Craig: Mm-hmm. Yes, we do. What are you doing here?

Xander: Well, jack’s gwen’s dad. He’s also my best man.

Craig: Oh. Well, I didn’t know that.

Jack: I thought as much. That’s why I suggested to xander that the four of us should have a friendly drink together before the wedding.

Xander: It’s a single malt, almost as old as I am. Jack’s treat.

Craig: So you’re xander cook. Leo and i were just talking about you.

Gwen: Look, before you say anything, I know I’m not your favorite person, and for good reason. When I came to salem, I was terribly unhappy, and I took that all out on you and your family, and especially abigail.

Jennifer: Yes, you did.

Gwen: So I wanted to say is that abigail has managed to forgive me. It means the absolute world to me. Because with her forgiveness and xander’s love, I’ve stopped becoming that person who did all those horrible things. So, really, what I’m trying to say for myself here is, I was very angry and spiteful because I just thought that nobody was ever gonna love me. But now I have jack, and I have xander. And for the first time, I feel like I have a family of my own. Sorry, so what is it that you wanted to say?

Jennifer: You know, you’ve lived in this house. You see pictures of family everywhere. So you probably figured that family means everything to me, gwen. And everything to my husband. So what I wanted to say is, jack is really proud of the person that you’ve become, and so am I.

Gwen: Oh.

Jennifer: [Laughs]

[Tender music]

It’s okay.

My asthma felt anything but normal.

Gwen: Thank you, jennifer.

Abigail: Mom.

Jennifer: Whoa!

Abigail: I didn’t know you were coming.

Jennifer: Well, I had to see you for myself. Oh, my goodness. Now I know that you’re really okay.

Abigail: Yeah, I’m fine. I’m happy you’re here.

Jennifer: And you’re going to be gwen’s matron of honor?

Abigail: Yes, I am.

Gwen: I know, I can’t believe it. I mean, I’m actually getting married here in a little while. I need to get dressed. I need to get ready.

Jennifer: Yes.

Abigail: Do you need help getting dressed?

Gwen: No, I don’t think so, but if I do, I will let you know. Thank you.

[Moody music]

Jennifer: Hey. What’s wrong?

Abigail: I just learned some very interesting intel about our bride-to-be.

Chloe: So, what did you say to chad and sonny?

Brady: Told them that leo signed the prenup and that now it’s basically all up to them.

Chloe: Well, did they have any luck finding this jackie person?

Brady: Hopefully, we’ll find out soon.

Chloe: Well, not soon enough to stop this wedding. Ugh. Ugh.

Brady: What?

Chloe: It means I have to go get ready for it. Feel like I’m going to a funeral. I should just get dressed in all black since I am ghoul girl.

Brady: Hey, you do realize that you’re not going to be doing this alone.

Chloe: What, are you ready to go public?

Brady: Yeah. Like I told you back in the good old days, I want the whole world to know that you are my girl.

[Tender music]

Xander: Oh, yes. Should we have another?

Leo: Might want to slow down there, big guy. Don’t want to disappoint the missus tonight.

Xander: I appreciate your concern, leo, but that’s not going to be a problem.

Leo: Lucky her.

Craig: So, jack, you’ve heard about me and nancy, yes?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. Yeah. How’s she holding up?

Craig: Well, she’s in a great deal of pain, and I feel terrible about that, but I just couldn’t lie to her anymore. Let alone myself. Anyway, she’s an amazing lady, and I pray that she finds the right man who she can spend this next chapter of her life with.

Clyde: Hard enough to have your husband tell you he’s leaving you, but for another man?

Nancy: The same man that he is marrying today. He wants us to be civilized, and he invited me to the wedding.

Clyde: Guy’s got some nerve.

Nancy: I might go. That’s kind of one of the reasons I got on the dating site. I just didn’t like the thought of showing up there alone.

Clyde: Nancy, are you asking me to escort you to that wedding?

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Nancy: Do you feel used?

Clyde: No. To be honest, the day I walked out of prison, the only clothes I had were the clothes that I walked in with, but I’m sure I could scare something up.

Nancy: Really?

Clyde: Yeah, but I don’t think you really want me to take you tonight.

Nancy: It is crazy, right? I’m asking you to be my plus-one at the wedding of my ex-husband and his boyfriend. Why don’t think you should go with me? Because you were in prison?

Clyde: Well, you said it didn’t matter to you, so why I would care what other people think?

Nancy: Then why did you say you shouldn’t go with me?

Clyde: Because I think you’re worried about people seeing you there alone. I think you’re afraid that people will feel sorry for you. And I’d tell you, that just ain’t gonna happen.

Nancy: How do you know?

Clyde: Nancy miller, you go to that wedding and hold your pretty little head up high, just like you’ve been doing ever since we sat down to talk, and people there will see exactly what I see.

Nancy: And what’s that?

Clyde: A beautiful, strong woman who doesn’t need a man to make herself complete.

Chloe: As much as I would love for you to go with me to this wedding–

Brady: What? What?

Chloe: Are you sure you’re ready for rachel to find out about us?

Brady: I haven’t told her yet, but do you how she feels about you?

Chloe: Yeah, she likes me because I’m your friend.

Brady: No, that’s not true. It’s not the only reason.

Chloe: Well, she might not like me if I’m your girlfriend.

Brady: Chloe, I have talked to her about kristen and me. She knows that we will always love her, but she knows that mommy and daddy will never be a couple again.

Chloe: Poor baby.

Brady: Yeah, it’s sad, but… she also doesn’t want her daddy to be lonely. She did tell me that. And when we’re together, she sees how happy that makes me. So I think that she would think that that was a good thing.

Chloe: Are you sure?

Brady: I am.

Chloe: Oh, brady.

[Soft music]

Craig: I’d like to propose a toast. To leo, the man who makes my heart sing and who I’ll soon be lucky enough to call my husband.

Leo: To the bravest man I know, my husband-to-be, who took on all the people he loves because he loves me.

Xander: To my bonny bride. She’s everything that I love in a woman. She’s beautiful, she’s bright, and she can drink you lot under the table.

Jack: To my good friend, xander, who stood up for my daughter, stood behind her, and showed me finally how to see what he saw in her: A young woman who just wants to be loved. And now she is, by both of us. To love.

Craig: Hear, hear!

Xander: To love.

Jennifer: Gwen is the one that knocked you unconscious? She is the reason that you were kidnapped?

Abigail: Yes. Yes, but she doesn’t know that I know that. So we– we got to keep our voices down.

Jennifer: How can I keep my voice down? I just told her how proud I was of her. Do you know how devastated your father is going to be by all of this?

Abigail: I’m sure he is.

Jennifer: Why did she do this to you?

Abigail: I think I know. I don’t want to talk about it until I know for sure that I’m right.

Jennifer: Why haven’t you confronted her about this?

Abigail: Ava told me there’s so much more to know about gwen. I want it all. And ava’s forcing me to broker a plea deal for her with the da. Otherwise, she won’t talk.

Jennifer: Does she have any idea that you are on to all of this?

Abigail: She tracked me down at the police station today. I think it’s because she doesn’t want me talking to ava.

Jennifer: What did you do?

Abigail: I told her that she wouldn’t tell me who her accomplice was.

Jennifer: And she believed you?

Abigail: Yeah. And that’s the way that I want it. I can’t have her going down there and telling ava not to talk.

Jennifer: So this whole miraculous change in her character has just been an act this whole time?

Abigail: I think so. And it scares me, you know, because she’s already done so much to our family. What if she’s planning something else?

Jennifer: Abigail, you can’t let her do anything else to you. Please.

Abigail: Trust me, I’m gonna protect myself. But I can’t do that unless I know the whole truth.

Gwen: The whole truth about what?

[Dramatic music]

To be a thriver with metastatic breast cancer means…

Abigail: Oh, mom and i were just talking shop. I wanted her advice on how to handle a source because I’m not sure he’s being truthful.

Gwen: Oh, right. I’m sorry if I’m interrupting.

Abigail: No, you’re not. I’m your matron of honor, and I’m at your disposal.

Gwen: Well, it was just the dress I bought, I can’t quite do the zipper myself.

Abigail: Oh, yeah, okay, well, let’s go get you into it.

Gwen: Right. Okay.

[Moody music]

Nancy: Clyde, let me ask you something. Are you turning me down about going to the wedding tonight because you’re just not interested? I mean, I’m a big girl, in more ways than one. You don’t have to let me down easy.

Clyde: Nancy, life’s too short to fool around. If I wasn’t interested in you, I wouldn’t waste your time or mine.

Nancy: I already like you.

Clyde: I like you too, nancy. Which is another reason for me to stay away from that wedding.

Nancy: I’m sorry. I don’t know what you mean.

Clyde: On our first date, I don’t want to deal with a bunch of other people. I want you all to myself.

Craig: I hate to question your taste, but xander is not all that.

Leo: Excuse me?

Craig: I’ll be standing near him at the wedding tonight, but I only have eyes for you.

[Knock at door] Oh, my god, what now?

Xander: Oh, hey, sorry, I just jumped in the shower, and I stupidly didn’t check before, but I don’t have any of those little shampoo bottles. You have any extra?

Craig: Uh, the maid, I think left a few this morning–

Leo: I’ll get them.

Craig: So, married.

Xander: You nervous?

Craig: I’m–yeah, no.

Xander: Oh, thanks so much, mate. Cheers. I’ll see you guys at the wedding.

Craig: I take that back. In a towel, he is–

Leo: All that.

Craig: Definitely.

Chloe: So we are going to this wedding together.

Brady: Yeah, we are.

Chloe: So we’re officially a thing?

Brady: Yeah. Couldn’t be happier about it.

Chloe: Okay, well, I am, too, but I really should go get ready for this thing.

Brady: Yeah, you know what? Maybe you should just stay, and maybe we could go to my room. The wedding isn’t for many hours.

Chloe: Oh, you’re right, it isn’T.

[Cell phone beeps]

Brady: God, really? It’s from sonny. He and chad have met with jackie cox. They have something on leo.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Nancy: Bonnie! Oh. Oh, I’m sorry for dropping in like this, but it’s an emergency.

Bonnie: Look at you, all gorgeous. Did you come by for a refresh?

Nancy: No, no, it’s not that kind of an emergency. I need some advice and I didn’t have anyplace else to go.

Bonnie: Oh, honey, you came to the right place. Tell me all about it.

Nancy: Yesterday, craig and i signed the divorce papers. Now there’s nothing stopping that little gold-digging fiancée of his from getting everything he wants.

Leo: “In the matter of”… oh, my god. It can’t be. It is. It’s A… prenup. On our wedding day? What the hell?

Craig: Hey.

[Tense music]

Ava: It’s ava vitali.

Abigail: What do you want?

Ava: Well, I have some information that I think you will find very interesting.

Abigail: What kind of information?

Ava: Well, why don’t you come down to the police station and find out? You’ll be glad that you did.

Nicole: Can I get a double espresso, please?

Eric: Coming right up.

Nicole: Uh… I thought I was having vivid dreams before, but this one takes the cake.

Eric: You’re not dreaming. I’m really here.

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

[Soft orchestration]

[Tense music]

Ava: You came.

Abigail: What are you doing here?

Ava: What do you think? I don’t hang around the police station for fun. Well, at least not anymore.

Abigail: So you’ve been arrested.

Ava: Yes, by the police commissioner who I used to sleep with. He accused me of setting him up.

Abigail: Well, I never believed that rafe actually planted evidence in the first place, but what does any of this have to do with me?

Ava: It’s just a big misunderstanding. And I think that you can help me resolve it.

Abigail: You want your story in “the spectator”? Are you hoping for a little public sympathy?

Ava: No, I don’t want you to interview me, abigail. I want you to talk to trask on my behalf.

Abigail: Why would I do that?

Ava: Because I can help you in return.

Gwen: Gabi.

Gabi: Hey, gwen. What brings you here?

Gwen: I was actually thinking of booking this place. It’d be a wonderful venue for a little celebration.

Gabi: Oh, and what are you celebrating, pray tell?

Gwen: Xander and I are getting married today. Actually, we’re not the only ones; it’s gonna be a double wedding, and a fab one at that.

Craig: I’m glad I tracked you down, ’cause we’ve got a lot to do before we walk down that aisle in a few hours.

Leo: Including me signing this? With no warning at all? No explanation?

Craig: What are you talking about?

Leo: I thought you loved me.

Craig: I do.

Leo: Trusted me.

Craig: I do.

Leo: Then how could you ambush me with a prenup on our wedding day?

Craig: Prenup?

Leo: All that poison people poured into your ear about me– you believe them, don’t you?

Craig: Leo… I swear, I’ve never seen this before.

Leo: What? Well, then where did it come from?

Chloe: From me.

[Tense music]

Nicole: [Chuckles] Um… welcome back.

[Chuckles awkwardly] Okay. When did you get back to salem?

Eric: This morning. Yeah, my dad–he had some paperwork to get done and I volunteered to watch the bar.

Nicole: So why did you come back?

[Tense music]

Eric, did you leave the priesthood? As a struggling actor,

Eric: No, I’m still a priest.

Nicole: Oh. Then why aren’t you wearing your collar?

Eric: I only have to wear it when I’m saying mass or performing a sacrament. And the reason why I’m home– because the last time I was here it was a bit intense.

Nicole: Yeah, your mom’s exorcism.

Eric: Yeah. And I had some free time, so I, uh… I got on a plane, you know? I just wanted to be with the people that I love. I miss my family and I miss my friends and… I missed you.

[Lively jazzy music]

Chloe: A double wedding, huh?

Gwen: Yeah. I mean, it hasn’t really been a fantasy of mine, truth be told, but the thing is is my really old, dear friend lives in salem now. And he’s also in a rush to be married with his fiancé. So he suggested we take the plunge together. And he’s offered to pick up the tab.

Gabi: Oh, what a great friend. Anybody I know?

Gwen: His name’s matty cooper. You might know him as leo stark.

Gabi: Leo stark? Are you serious? He tried to ruin will and sonny’s lives– my daughter’s daddies. You know what? I hate that weasel with a vengeance.

Gwen: Okay, well, I know he’s not perfect. I mean, who is? He’s my friend and I’m terribly fond of him.

Gabi: You may be the only person on earth who is.

Gwen: I’ve also heard that his fiancé is quite mad about him too.

Gabi: Oh, okay. God help that guy. Must be a man, although i wouldn’t put it past leo to marry some rich old woman and take her for everything she’s worth.

Gwen: Okay, why don’t we just agree to disagree on matty. Yeah? Because he’s getting married, as I said, he’s a very good friend of mine, and I’m gonna marry xander and I want everything to just be perfect. And I do think this will be a very nice venue for a little intimate dinner after the ceremony.

Gwen: Hey, isn’t locking down the venue the maid of honor’s job?

Abigail: Matron, actually. And it’s abigail.

Gabi: Did you say abigail? Abigail who you drugged and sent to the loony bin? She’s your matron of honor?

Gwen: We’re moving past all that.

Gabi: Even the sleeping with her husband part? Okay, you know what? Never mind. None of my business.

Gwen: No, it isn’T.

Gabi: Besides, I really– I’m so happy right now. I am so really, really, impressed with myself. Ooh, more than usual.

Gwen: Why? What have you done?

Gabi: Well because–[Drumming on table] Drumroll please– I got ava vitali arrested.


Abigail: How could you possibly help me?

Ave: Well, if I recall correctly, both you and your husband are pretty eager to find out who bashed you over the head that night at the air field?

Abigail: Hmm. You mean the night of your harmless prank wearing the sarah mask? The night you saw nothing and know nothing about?

Ava: Yeah, well, maybe i wasn’t being completely up-front.

Abigail: Hmm. So unlike you.

Ava: Last time I was here, chad came and he paid me a visit and offered me a quid pro quo. I give him a name and he will go to bat for me with the da, get me a deal.

Abigail: Which you refused.

Ava: I did, yes.

Abigail: But now you’re wanting to talk, which means you are guilty as hell.

Ava: Oh. I’ve been wrongly accused, abigail. And I need a little assistance. Look, the way I see it is if I tell you attacked you that night and you take that to trask and get me a deal, we both get justice.

Nancy: You know, signing those divorce papers was very hard for me, bonnie, obviously. But… craig was sweet and he made every effort to help me get through it.

Bonnie: Yeah? How did he do that?

Nancy: Well, he bought me a drink and then he told me how much our life together meant to him and, um… how much he treasured the moments, the fun times that we had together. And, um… well, then he asked me to come to his wedding and said that it would mean a lot to him.

Bonnie: I’m sorry, I don’t think I heard you right. Did you just say he–

Nancy: He invited me to his wedding.

Bonnie: To leo stark?

Nancy: Well, who else is he marrying?

Bonnie: [Scoffs]

Nancy: Oh, come on, bonnie. Get your jaw up off the floor.

Bonnie: Well, why wouldn’t it be on the floor? For the man who left you after 30 years of marriage and making two children together– not to mention treasuring all those “fun times” you had together– for him to think it would be fun for you to attend his wedding to someone else?

Nancy: I know. I know, bonnie. It would be hard for me to see him marrying that horrible leo stark, but… I told him I’d think about it.

Bonnie: Exactly how much did you have to drink before you told him that?

Nancy: Hardly anything. I was very sober.

[Sighs] But I have to admit, bonnie, I was… I was kind of touched. I…[Sighs] I care about craig and I always will and… that’s why I need your advice.

Bonnie: Really? Do you really need to know what my advice is?

Nancy: I guess I already know what it is.

Bonnie: Okay, then. In case you had the slightest doubt, I have exactly three words of advice: Just say no.

[Tense music]

Craig: Chloe, why did you do this?

Chloe: Well, I knew that you would be busy with your wedding arrangements, and so I had justin take care of that for you. But since you are marrying my father for love, it’s not gonna be a problem signing that, right, leo? I mean, you can just read it. It’s pretty straightforward. Oh, and you’re going to need… this.

No matter who you are,

Eric: So how you been?

Nicole: Good. Good. I’m good.

Eric: Good. How’s holly?

Nicole: Oh. Oh. Holly is– she is such a little lady now. You know, she absolutely loves to sing.

Eric: [Laughs]

Nicole: She knows all the words to all the songs in “annie.”

Eric: Oh, really? That’s great.

Nicole: Yeah. Yeah. Watched it about a million times.

[Both laugh] I really hope that you get a chance to see her.

Eric: Yeah, I’d love that.

Nicole: [Chuckles]

Eric: So I hear ej got cleared of, uh… sami’s kidnapping.

Nicole: Yeah.

Eric: And, um, you two still…a thing?

Nicole: No. No. We’re not. I realized that we are not right for each other.

Eric: I’m happy to hear that. And you know what? I meant what I said at new year’S. I just… I just want you to be happy with whomever it is that you’re with. But ej was just not the man that I–

Nicole: I’m seeing rafe.

Eric: Rafe’s a good man.

Nicole: [Exhales]

Eric: Yeah. You two have been friends for a really long time.

Nicole: Yeah. We have, but it’S…now turned into something more.

Eric: How did that happen? I mean– I mean… if you don’t mind me asking.

Gwen: Ava’s been arrested?

Gabi: And I made it happen. That bitch is gonna pay for framing my brother, not to mention moving in with jake just to spite me.

Gwen: Huh. How’d you pull that off?

Gabi: Well, I found the dirtbag that she paid to frame my brother, and he coughed up a recording admitting everything.

Gwen: Wow. Well done.

Gabi: Best part was I got a front row seat to rafe arresting her. I mean, talk about karma, right? That skank is probably cooling off her heels right this second at the station. And next– next stop is jail and then court and then statesville, where she’s gonna hopefully rot forever. No way out. I mean, can you imagine how desperate ava must feel right now?

[Inhales deeply]


Ava: So? What did trask say?

Abigail: Not a chance.

Ava: Why the hell not?

Abigail: You framed the police commissioner, ava. It’s a felony. The person who hit me would only be charged assault, and it’s not nearly enough to interest trask.

Ava: It wasn’t just assault. They kidnapped you. They took you to a desert island and held you captive.

Abigail: I reminded her of all that, but she still thinks that you’re a bigger fish than whoever knocked me out.

Ava: So what if I told you that this person has committed other crimes since then?

Abigail: What other crimes?

Ava: So sarah’s not off with rex?

Gwen: No. She’s fending off bugs on some tropical deserted island that kristen sent her to.

Ava: [Laughs] Kristen does not mess around, does she?

Gwen: Exactly.

Ava: So that’s why you helped break her out of jail– because at any moment she could tell xander where to find his not-so-runaway bride. You switched out the antidote? How is that even possible?

Gwen: [Sighs] Because I still had some left from when I used it on abigail.

Ava: So you had that just tucked away on the odd chance that down the road, you might wanna drive somebody else out of their mind?

Gwen: And you can thank god that I did, because you and i both know that if rolf’s antidote could bring back sarah, xander would go back to her in a heartbeat.

Ava: Trust me. What this person has done– it’ll give trask a much bigger fish than me.

Abigail: Unless you’re just jerking me around.

Ava: Why would I do that, abigail? I wanna get out of here.

Abigail: Great. You want this so bad, this fish is so big, then who is it, hmm? Who is it and what have they done? Don’t waste my time. Okay, if you’re not gonna spill it right here, right now, then I’m leaving.

Ava: Wait. I’ll tell you.

Bonnie: You cannot go to that wedding, nancy.

Nancy: Bonnie, I know it won’t be easy for me. But–

Bonnie: But? But? How can that word even be in that sentence? I know you had a drink with craig and I know it was all sweet and comforting and that he went on about how great things had been between you. But seriously, girl, the man broke your heart.

Nancy: Oh, yes, I know. But… bonnie, it really wasn’t his fault.

Bonnie: Ugh, nancy, that’s “irrevelant.” No, is it–irrelevant. Relevant?

Nancy: Neither. It’s neither, bonnie.

[Sighs] Look… craig didn’t leave me because I wasn’t enough. And he didn’t go for a younger woman because he wanted to stoke his ego. I mean, he was a man trying to deal with his own sexual orientation.

Bonnie: Let me guess, you’ve been reading up on the topic of failed marriages.

Nancy: Well, I’ve been reading a lot of books, but– in general, but not just about failed marriages. They’re failed marriages that deal with, well, when one member of a marriage is gay. I mean, from everything that I’ve read, I feel like I have so much more empathy for what craig has been going through. A lot more than I had in the beginning.

Bonnie: Honey.

Nancy: Look, bonnie, I can tell by the look on your face that you feel that I’m, like, wimpy and totally pathetic. I mean, I’m sure that you had a lot more respect for me when I wanted to just kill the guy.

Bonnie: No, no. Stop. Stop. Honey, I didn’t have more respect for you back then. Honestly, I’m just trying to protect you from running right into the eye of that storm. Attending your ex-hus– and not ex for a very long time–wedding to someone you think is scum.

Nancy: I know craig doesn’t think that way about leo. So I have to try to respect that–

Bonnie: Have to? In my opinion, you don’t have to do anything but what you’re doing right now, which is trying to get through this and move on with your life.

[Sighs] But looking in your eyes, I can tell that no matter how many times I tell you to tell him no or tell you not to go to the wedding–just falling on deaf ears. And I get it.

Nancy: You really do?

Bonnie: Mm-hmm. Honey, you loved that man for most of your life and you wanna be there for him. All I’m saying is just, I don’t know, think about it for a couple of days.

Nancy: I can’T. Craig texted me and said that the wedding has been moved up to tonight.

Bonnie: Tonight? Well, why didn’t you tell me that?

Nancy: I just did. And bonnie…I wanna go.

Bonnie: Then I respect your decision.

Nancy: I, um, just hope that everybody doesn’t just stare at me and go, “oh, there’s the woman whose husband left her for a man,” while I’m sitting there all alone.

Bonnie: So don’t go alone.

Nancy: I have no choice. The wedding is tonight.

Bonnie: Sure you do. You just get yourself a hot date to take you.

Nancy: Bonnie, I just told you the wedding is tonight. Where am I gonna find a date on such short notice?

Bonnie: Easy, killer. We’ll find you a date right here.

Leo: I have never been so insulted in my entire life. Craig and I aren’t even married yet and you’re talking divorce?

Chloe: That’s the whole point of a prenup, leo, to figure it out ahead of time. And what better way to prove that you’re marrying my father for love and not money?

Leo: What better way than by signing a stupid document? With love and devotion, that is a better way. With something that is private and sacred. And also special and exciting and happens at least twice a day and sometimes more.

Craig: Leo.

Chloe: Okay, so you won’t sign it, will you? Surprise. Dad, what else do you need to prove that this guy’s a gold digger?

Craig: Chloe, stop it. Right now.

Leo: See? He is as appalled as I am. So you can take the stupid prenup and you know what you can do with it?

Craig: Hold it. Just… I think you should sign it.

[Tense music]

With depression, you just feel…blah.

Gwen: Why would you say that ava’s desperate? Did she say something?

Gabi: What do you mean? Like what?

Gwen: You’re not gonna rat me out, are you?

Ava: You know, despite committing my fair share of crimes, I’ve managed to stay out of prison for most of my life. I’m not getting locked up for this.

Gwen: What are you saying?

Ava: Well, what I’m saying is if I do get arrested, the only way out may be to give them a name. So I’m gonna ask you one simple question. Why shouldn’t I sacrifice you to save myself?

Gabi: Gwen? Something wrong?

Ava: Make the offer to trask. You hook her, and then I’ll give you the name and the crimes.

Abigail: You know, I don’t really think you’re in a position to be calling the shots here, ava.

Ava: I’m just asking you to work with me here. It’s not like you walk away empty-handed.

Abigail: But you won’t tell me who this mystery person is.

Ava: If I give away everything I know up front, then you can take all of that to trask and cut me out. And then I got nothing to bargain with, and there’s no reason for her to give me immunity.

Abigail: Well, then I guess we’re at a standoff.

Nicole: [Sighs] How rafe and I got together is a really long story.

Clyde: Well, look who’s back. And all the way from africa, huh? Your daddy told me you were living there now.

Eric: Clyde weston. Are you working here?

Clyde: I sure am. Your old man gave me a job. He didn’t tell you that?

Eric: No, he did not.

Nicole: Uh… weren’t you in prison?

Clyde: I got paroled.

Nicole: I’m sorry, why would roman hire you after you kidnapped his great-grandson?

Clyde: Because he knows I did my time, paid for my crimes, and that I’m determined to be a better man from this point on.

Nicole: [Scoffs]

Clyde: You believe in redemption, don’t you, padre?

Leo: Craig, I am beyond offended that you need me to sign some legal document to prove that I love you.

Craig: I don’t need you to sign it, but obviously my daughter does.

Leo: Because she doesn’t trust me, which is very hurtful.

Craig: I know. Leo, I am so sick of all of the people that I know and care about constantly coming after me with suspicions and warnings about you, but if– if your signing this puts a stop to all that, then… I think you should do it. Please? For me.

Ava: I make it a practice never to give away something for nothing.

Abigail: Right. Well, thank you. Now have fun in jail. Don’t pass go. Don’t collect $200 or anything. Boy, this was really a waste of time coming down here, except maybe– maybe I got a story for “the spectator.” “Ex-mafia princess finally brought down by ex-lover’s kid sister.” Meh.

Ava: It was gwen.

Abigail: What?

Ava: The person who attacked you, it was your sister… gwen.

Gabi: Gwen? Hey, you look–are you okay?

Gwen: Um, I just realized, I have a million things to do, so I’m just–I’m gonna run.

Gabi: Weren’t you gonna book this place for afterwards?

Gwen: You’re right. That is a job for my matron of honor, so I’ll just have abigail do it, so bye.

Gabi: Mm-hmm.

Nancy: How’s this: “Recently divorced, fun-loving woman. Donates her time to charitable causes.” What’s wrong with that?

Bonnie: They’re all too bland. It’s a jungle out there. You gotta spice it up. How about this: “Back on the market. Hot to trot and ready for action.”

Nancy: Ready for action?

Bonnie: You asked for my help–let me help you. I know about this stuff. Trust me.

Nancy: Oh. Is this how you met justin? On a dating app?

Bonnie: God, no. But I’ve helped plenty of my friends do this, so here we go. Now, the important thing is to get a really good picture, so– okay, stand up. Let’s go. Let’s go. Over here. Get a nice background. Perfect. Perfect. Perfect. All right, yeah. Give me a smile. Oh, nancy, that looks like cramps. Try again. Nah, give me some teeth this time. Okay, honey, you gotta loosen up, all right? Have some fun. Think of something fun like a roll in the hay with a hot date.

Nancy: The only guy I can think of is craig.

Bonnie: Whatever floats your boat. Just give me a smile here. Ah, perfect.

[Camera shutter clicking] Hold that. Hold it. Hold it. Hold it. Uh-huh.

Nancy: Can I stop smiling now?

Bonnie: Yep. Now all we gotta do is pick the perfect picture, upload it, and we are off to the races. Then when you walk into that wedding with that gorgeous man on your arm, craig wesley, gay or not gay, will rue the day that he let you go.

Chloe: What are you waiting for, leo?

Leo: Give me a second, ms. Bossypants. I’d like to know what I’m signing.

Chloe: I told you, it’s pretty standard.

Leo: “All premarital and postmarital property is separate including any residence in which the spouses cohabit. In the event of a divorce, the residence goes to dr. Wesley. All bank accounts, including joint accounts, revert to single accounts for dr. Wesley.” Blah, blah, blah. “No alimony or cash settlement in the event of a divorce.”

Chloe: Yeah, none of that should matter if you’re marrying my father for love, right? Dad, I’m sorry I’m doing this to you on your wedding day, but you have to know before you get married.

[Tense music]

Leo: There, satisfied? My asthma felt anything but normal.

Chloe: You signed it.

Leo: This amazing hunk of man is the love of my life. So there’s no reason not to sign some silly piece of paper. We are going to be husband and husband from now until eternity, prenup be damned.

Craig: Oh, yeah. Guess I should make it official then.

Leo: [Exhales] I know you have had your issues with me and my past. But I hope that this will finally convince you that my love for your father is real, profound, and fills me with joy. Maybe you’ll even give us your blessing, because it’s the only way he’s gonna be happy, and that’s all I want is your father’s happiness.

Chloe: Okay, I guess we want the same thing then. Leo stepped up, so I will too. If he makes you happy, then I’m happy, and that’s all that matters. You have my blessing. I will take this to justin to file, and I guess I will see you two at the wedding later.

Craig: [Breathes deeply] Thank you, sweetheart. It means more to me than you know.

Chloe: I love you.

Craig: Okay. All right. Are you upset with me? Hmm?

Bonnie: It’s simple. If you like a guy, you swipe right. If you don’t like him, swipe left. Guys do the same.

[Gasps] Ooh. How about that one?

Nancy: Too young.

Bonnie: Kay.

Nancy: Oh, too old.

Bonnie: Okay.

[Gasps] Doctor.

Nancy: No doctors.

Bonnie: Okay.

Nancy: Oh, he has a nice smile.

Bonnie: Oh, well, he has no hair.

Nancy: So what?

Bonnie: Well, you can’t show up at the wedding with just anybody. You gotta turn heads, sweetheart. Ooh. Ooh, ooh, ooh. I found one. “Recently back on the market” just like you. “Family-oriented” just like you.

[Gasps] “Loves to cook.” Do you love to cook?

Nancy: I like to eat.

Bonnie: [Laughs] Sounds like a match to me. Oh, and he is cuh-yute! Look.

Nancy: He is good-looking.

Bonnie: What do you think?

Nancy: Okay, I’m gonna do it.

Bonnie: Do it. Do it. Do it. Aah! [Laughs]

Abigail: So I was right. It was gwen who knocked me out that day.

Ava: Oh, and there is so much more.

Abigail: Tell me. What else did she do? Did it have something to do with my kidnapping? Was it something else? Are there other victims?

Ava: I will tell you everything that you wanna know in excruciating detail. But trask needs to hear it first and only after I get my immunity. Abigail. This is your chance. You want your sister to pay for her sins? Get me the deal and I will sing like a canary.

Abigail: I’ll be back.

Eric: I do believe in redemption.

Clyde: Yeah, so does your old man, which is why he hired me. I’m paying it back by trying to do a good job and earn an honest living.

Nicole: Do you even know what that means?

Clyde: That’s a good question. I mean, I get why some people won’t give me another chance, given some of the things I’ve done.

Nicole: Like trying to blow up an entire town?

Clyde: But there ain’t no use in looking at the past, is there? I mean, I’m all about looking forward, doing everything I can to be a better man. But hey, I didn’t mean to interrupt you two. I’ll just get on with my break. Enjoy yourselves. Good to see you again.

Nicole: [Scoffs] A better man? After everything he’s done and all the people he’s hurt, does he really expect anyone to believe that he’s changed or is capable of it? I mean– oh. You must think I’m a hypocrite. After all the things I’ve done and the people I’ve hurt.

Eric: No. But like clyde said, you know, it’s about… it’s about working harder. Moving forward. So you, uh… you were gonna tell me about you and rafe.

Nicole: [Sighs] Yeah. Plus, I can tell you everything. You know the worst about me.

Eric: And I still care about you, nicole. You know that, right?

Nicole: And I’m grateful. I am, eric.

Eric: Talk to me.

Nicole: Okay. Well, rafe and I have been friends for a long time, like you said. And he was there for me when you and I split. And then in october… we slept together.

[Inhales sharply] Only he was living with someone else, and that someone was ava vitali. And she found out and she tried to ruin rafe’s life. She framed him for a crime he didn’t commit, and then just yesterday, gabi found proof that ava actually set him up, and she’s been arrested.

Eric: So if ava’s no longer a threat to rafe or to you… meaning that there’s nothing to stop you from living happily ever after. Right? It’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.

Nicole: Happily ever after? Yeah, I guess so.

Eric: [Chuckles] You guess so?

Nicole: I mean, I’m just a little skeptical of that particular phrase for obvious reasons.

Eric: Yeah. Me too. Meaning–why don’t I just skip the “ever after” part and just ask… you’re happy, aren’t you?

Nicole: Yes. I’m happy.

Eric: I’m glad. Like I said, that’s all I want for you.

Nicole: I should get to work.

[Chuckles] So thank you for the coffee.

Eric: You’re welcome. It’s on the house.

Nicole: Thanks. It was good to see you.

Eric: It was good to see you too.

Nancy: Ooh! I don’t even know why i let you talk me into this. He’s probably already swiped left.

Bonnie: Where is that confidence we’ve been working on?

Nancy: I-it got up and went home ’cause it wants to curl up with a good book. Oh, you know what? He probably didn’t even swipe left. You know what he did? He’s probably just ignored it, which is even more insulting–

Bonnie: You have to work on this attitude. Remember, you are strong, you are proud, and you are beautiful. And any man, including this one, would be proud to have you on his arm. You know what? Swipe another guy. In fact, swipe a dozen.

Nancy: I didn’t see anyone else that I was interested in.

[Phone beeps]

Bonnie: [Gasps] He swiped right. Honey, you got one on your first try! [Laughs] Oh, and he is cuh-yute!


[Dramatic music]

Gabi: Well, I’m done. And so is ava. Nothing can save her now.

Ava: Sorry, gwen. I don’t really have any friends, and I do hate to lose you. But… it was you or me, so… what choice did I really have?

Abigail: Gwen?
