won again. Are you sure you’re not letting me win? Why would I do that? I, uh, I don’t know. You know, my mom just went off the deep end and my stepmom just died, and I feel terrible about both those things. I’m not that good a person. Hmm. I always play to win. Oh, okay. Well then I will accept my victory and thank you for keeping me company all day.

I was happy to be here. You sure I saw you checking your phone every a few minutes? I was not. Hmm.

Okay. Maybe I thought I’d hear from Johnny. I am sure he is just busy with family stuff.

Are you kidding me right now, Courtney? Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to interrupt this special moment. Look, this is not what you think. Okay? Okay. So my brother and my girlfriend weren’t just about to cheat on me. No, Allie, take it easy. Okay. It was just a friendly hug. Well, this is the second time that I’ve caught the two of you getting cozy together.

Obviously something is going on and I would like to know.

Why do I let Chanel’s mom get to me time? Pauline is a formidable woman. All right. Just try not to let her get to you. Enjoy breakfast. Not only has she ruined my entire life, but she’s also ruined my pancakes. They’re ice cold. All right, let me warm up for you. No, that’s okay. I’m not even hungry. I mean, how can I eat after I have to deal with both Nicole and Paul in the same day?

Yeah. I’m really sorry. Things got outta hand between you and Nicole,

whatever. At least now she knows that you’ve moved on and hopefully she realizes that it’s time for her to do.

Nicole, what you doing? Whatcha doing me right?

Hey, are you home? I was hoping I could stop by really? I thought you said you couldn’t stand being in the same room as me. Well, I just had a little run in with Stephan and got ugly. Did he hurt you? No. No, nothing like that. I just just wanna talk. Is that all right? Of course. I’ll be waiting. Okay. See you soon.

Stephan, I’m gonna get you deprogrammed, whether you like it or not.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Hey. Hey. Thanks for bringing this by. Yeah. Special batch of chatter for you and the family. I’ll make sure Dad eats some. Yeah. Is uh, is he around? No, him and Steph just went to St. Luke’s to make arrangements, but they should be home soon. Okay. Oh, hi, I, I’m, uh, Roman Brady. I’m, uh, Tripp’s uncle. Oh, yeah. I’m, I’m sorry.

Uh, uncle Roman. This is Wendy Shin. Hi. Nice to meet. Uh, I’m so sorry to hear about your wife and your sister. Well, thank you. If I may, I met Dr. Johnson in Hong Kong and she was a tonal badass that she was. Yes. Uh, So what’s with Shiner kid? Uh, it’s just a weird thing at the park, but it’s all good now.

All right. Look, I’m telling you, there’s nothing going on between the two of us. And why are you here? I came over to see Wendy. Okay. And since she wasn’t here, you decided to throw yourself at Chanel. We were just talking and hugging. Do not forget that I, I wouldn’t cheat on you. Oh, no you wouldn’t because you admitted to me last night that you and Johnny almost kissed.

So how far would you have gone today? All right. Stop it, Allie. Yeah. I am glad that I stopped it by walking through that door because if I hadn’t, the two of you might be having sex on that couch right now.

Can I at least heat that up for you? That’s just gonna make them rubbery. Let me get you something else. How about my family’s famous clams Chowder for breakfast. Considering an early lunch, I mean, it will warm your soul and rain. Now your soul needs to warming up. It’s on the house. All right. You can’t say no.

I can never say no to you.

Well, I, I, I, I, I, I’ve, I don’t think this is a good idea. Ah, why the hell not? Well, for one thing, you’re still upset about Eric. Ah, please. I don’t care about Eric, and obviously he doesn’t care about me. He and Sloan are probably somewhere off doing it, like rabbits. This is what I’m talking about. Well, I’m talking about how slow, I’m like to rub this in my face, so I’m gonna rub this in her face.

I don’t think Sloane would care if you and I slept together. Hi. Now rub it near it’s face. Yeah, the whole goose scanner thing. Wait a minute, IOR. Oh, let’s just do this.

Okay. You sure you don’t want me to stick around? At least until your family comes back, I will be fine. Okay. You are officially relieved of your babysitting duties. I wasn’t babysitting. I actually like hanging out with you, even though I do have to occasionally throw the controller. You swear you aren’t letting me win.

I told you I’m not that generous. You on the other hand, you are a good guy. You did something nice earlier. What did I do? Oh, and Roman asked about your eye. You didn’t rat out Johnny. Yeah. Well my family’s going through enough. Like I said, he apologized, so we’re cool still. You probably saved him a lecturer.

Two from his grandfather. You didn’t have to. Okay. Yes, you’re right. I’m a hero. So you are gonna be sticking around Salem for a while? Yeah, I’m not sure. At least through the funeral. Well, if, uh, you ever need to talk or crush someone at two k. Feel free to hit me up. Thanks, Wendy. I appreciate it.

Will you stop overreacting right before you just walked in here? I was telling Chanel that I’m happy you two were together and I was telling Johnny I was happy he found Wendy. What you saw was just us wishing each other. Let’s just chill. Okay. Okay. Well maybe I could just chill. If the two of you hadn’t almost kissed last night, it was a dumb, impulsive moment and it will never happen again.

Why would I believe that? Because it’s the truth. All right, well, you stop. You’re getting yourself all worked up over nothing and all this jealousy you’re starting to sound like, like Mom, were you just about to say, I sound like Mom. I. You take that back right now. Why would I, you are acting exactly like her.

You’re jumping to conclusions, you’re throwing a tantrum. You’re making it all about you. Okay. Well, you know what? I think that you’re acting like your dad. How, uh, EJ makes moves on women who are already taken, like Aunt Bell or mom when she was race. Oh, all right. I am not making moves. Of course you are.

And just like your father, you don’t care about the relationships that you ruin as long as you get what you.

Nicole, Nicole, stop. Stop. Stop, stop, stop. What is the problem? A New year’s you avan us getting together. Yes. And you put the breaks on. Remember, you said you wanted to stop making impulsive decisions. Okay, well, it’s been almost a month, so there’s nothing impulsive about it. You made it very clear. That you weren’t ready.

Mm-hmm. . But now I am ready. Oh. Looks like you are too. . What? What? Why are you doing this? Hey, Jay, don’t you want me ? Of course. Of course I do.

Then why do you keep pulling? Because I don’t think you are in the right mind to make an informed decision. Why not? Common parlance my drunk is a skunk.

Hi, come on in. Thanks. Sorry, I’m kind of sweaty. I was, I was at the gym working off my frustration over getting fired. DJJ fired you? Yeah. Came by Bright and nerdly to do it in person. I guess that’s not surprising, but I’m sorry. Thank you. So what happened with Stefan? Well, I was at the Demir state, um, trying to convince Stefan yet again to get Deprogrammed.

You don’t give up to. No, it’s not in my nature. I mean, I tried to remind him of, you know, the love that we used to share, but he just doubled down and was calling me vicious names, telling me I’m a terrible person. Mm-hmm. . I hate that he’s doing that too. Thank you. Why you telling me all this? Gabby? Is it so you can yell at me again for brainwashing, Stephan, for turning him against you?

No, Lee, that’s not why I’m here. And why are you.

I am here to say that you’re right when it comes to Stephan, I’m wasting my time and the person that I should be with is you.

What did you say? You heard me? Okay, then I’m going off the rails and hurry. You don’t get to criticize my father when yours is in prison for kidnapping mom. Oh, you really think my dad has committed more crimes than yours? Oh, you better watch out Chanel if all starts to feel too insecure, she might have you kidnapped little.

Okay. That is enough. Stop it. Both of you. Did you hear what he just said to me? I heard what you both said, Johnny. And it’s time for you to go. Yeah, it’s fine by. If we tell Wendy that I stop by. Yeah. Okay. And I’ll make sure to tell her that when she wasn’t here. You hooked up with my girlfriend instead.



mm. Seriously? You, you’ve never had cle char. It’s good. I mean, it’s substantial.

Are you saying you don’t like our famous chowder? Uh, no. I’m just saying that, um, warm milk and clams not really my thing. Okay. First of all, it’s just heavy cream. It sure is. Okay. You know what? I had completely judged your character. I don’t think we can be friends after this. Look, I’m not saying it’s not good chowder, you know, I’m just, I’m a little bit more of a chicken noodle.

Traditionalist chicken noodle. That’s it. Out out. I want you, Adam, you’re kicking me out into Yes, you can take your blasphemy over to Julie’s place and you and Paul. Y’all can enjoy your spongy little noodles and chicken cubes. I didn’t realize you took your chowder so seriously. Oh my God. Are you kidding me?

That is a famous Brady recipe. And if my father heard you despairing his moss chowder, oh my God. It’s like putting the knife to his heart. Well then I’m so glad that you’re gonna keep this between the two of us because I would hate for your dad to know that. Um, I actually kind of hate it. Yeah, you certain.

Good morning to hear that.

Excuse me. There is nothing skunky about me. No, but you are inebriated. Inebriated as in chimpanzee. I don’t get it. I’m not drunk. It’s a skunk and a drunk. With a monk. I understand. Okay. Like I can’t be drunk. I just had one measly mimosa and maybe teeny tiny champagne chaser. Tiny. And nevertheless, it has hit you pretty hard.

Oh, stop. I can find, see. Perfectly fine. Oh, oh God. Oh, oh, oh. The room. Spinning. I’m gonna be sick, Nicole.

I have to say, this is very surprising. The last time I saw you, you dumped a bucket of ice on my head. I was upset clearly. I mean, can you blame me after everything that you did? I suppose not, but Gabby, that doesn’t explain the sudden 180

after I calmed down, I, I thought about what you said and I wouldn’t have even bothered you if I didn’t feel like there was some sort of passion between us.

So you admitted.

I admit that I, I feel emotions around you. I feel them very strongly. You are right. You are right about a lot of things. Like what? You and I are the same. We, we both go to drastic measures for what we want and. Stephan would never love me the way that you do and that you and I belong together. You didn’t want to hear it.

I know, but that was then, and I mean, after everything that happened today, I, I can’t deny it. Gabby, what are you saying? I’m saying I need to give up on stuff and, and really give our marriage a try.

Nicole, how are we doing in there? You okay?

Oh, don’t, don’t look at me. Why? Because this is so embarrassing. There’s no reason to be embarrassed. Ah, yes. I, I practically jumps you in. You turn me down, and then I puked like a freshman at a frat party.

I’m flattered, you know, flatter that I threw up. I’m flatter that you wanted to be with me. Trust me, it was hard to turn you down and why did. Because you were too drunk to know what you were doing. Ah, this doesn’t make any sense. I mean, I only had a, a drink and a half. I mean, everyone knows I can hold my liquor.

You said you didn’t have breakfast. Yeah, but still I’m Nicole freaking walker, the goat. Even restaurants won’t serve me bottomless mimosas because I put ’em out of business. . Hey, even LeBron James has an off day. Yeah.

Unless, unless, unless something was wrong with the champagne. Maybe, but I had some and I’m fine.

And what happened to me,

Sloane? This is my dad. Dad, this is Sloane Peterson. Mr. Brady, it’s a pleasure to meet you, and I’m very sorry to hear about what happened to your wife. Thank you. I appreciate that. Even if. Do hate my chatter. Oh, first of all, let me just say I hate all Clem chowder. I’m not sure that’s helping. Uh, anyway, I’m extremely grateful for the hospitality, and I hope you don’t hold us against me.

Of course. Now what I do hold against you is the way you’ve gone after Paulina Price and retire. Dad is married to a carver who happens to be my best friend, which makes her family. There is nothing more important than me than family. I feel the same way, which is why I won’t stop until Paul and Chanel have both paid for their crimes.

They took my parents from me, and I’m not gonna stop until they’ve both been brought to Justice.

Wendy, I was not hooking up with Chanel. Allie just completely misread. You don’t need to explain yourself to me. You can do whatever you want.

You know, you’re right. You’re nothing like mom. Thanks, lassis.

Where are you going? To the office to do some work? Mm-hmm. I don’t think so. We are gonna talk this out. I’m not really in the mood. I thought you said you came home to work things out with me. Yeah. And then I saw you in my brother’s arms. I told you it was totally innocent. You knew that. I was really upset about the two of you Almost kissing last night.

Why would you think it’s okay to have him over and give him a hug for the ump? Empty time? Johnny and I are just friends. You have nothing to worry about. Yeah. That’s what. Hold up. You went to see Alex.

I missed you so much. I missed you too. Are are, are you serious about this? About giving our marriage a try? I’m gonna show you how serious I am.

The vows that we took to love each other for better or worse, I don’t take them lightly. So you’re giving up on Stephan? He gave up on, on me a long time ago. I just couldn’t see it. So am I The consolation of prize probably. I I loved you before Stephan came back, but yes, I had a hard time accepting it.

But the Stephen. That I used to love is gone for good, and I believe you. I believe that we can get back to where we used to be. I can’t believe this. How do we start? What’s our first step? Well, we never did consummate our marriage.

You wanna consummate our marriage. Now, I wanna feel close to you again. Every time we made love, we had this deep connection. Absolutely. And if we could get to being close like that again, it, it could go towards building our relationship. Don’t you agree? Y Yeah. I mean, This is incredible. Well then why are you hesitating, Gabby?

I, I, I just wanna make sure this is what you really want. This is what I want. I, I wanna make this a real marriage. I wanna commit. I’m ready to commit. Great. Well, you think you could do a little favor for me first? Anything. Well, you mentioned you went to the gym, so maybe you could take a shower first.

Yeah, I, I can handle that and uh, in the meantime I’ll get undressed please. Leo, you have no idea how you meet.

There has to be something in here that will get rough, and I know your loyalty is with Aen, his family, but this is a complicated situation. I’m not saying. Lost her mother because Chanel pushed her off a building. From what I understand, that was self-defense. Well, Chanel and her mother are lying about that.

ARD didn’t think so well. I believe that the American judicial system will come to a different conclusion. Yeah. Hebe told me that you are suing for wrongful death. That’s right. And I expect to be vindicated. Yeah. My advice would. Drop to vendetta and move on. Dad still has every right to pursue the case.

The hell she does, all she’s doing is causing more pain. Haven’t we all had enough of that? You know what I, um, I really don’t wanna get between the two of you and cause more attention, especially at a time like this. I think I’d better just go some we’re in the middle of a lunch date.

This is a client. It shouldn’t take long, but maybe it will give you and your dad a time to sort through some things.

Can’t you just give Sloan a chance? What? You two getting serious? No, but I like. What about Nicole? Nicole? Me. You’re over. All right, we moved on. I’ve heard that before. You sure this time?

Tea and toast. The over indulges Best friend. Oh, thank God. I thought you were gonna bring me more. Your mimas yucky hangover here. Hey, that cure works. Yeah. Even if it is a little bit disgusting. Hopefully this makes you feel better. No, it couldn’t make me feel worse. That’s the spirit.

Thank you. My pleasure. No, I mean. Thank you for being a gentleman earlier.

I can’t believe it means to fool myself. You didn’t. I did, but I, I want you to know ej, that not everything I said and did was because the alcohol.

I am sick of pining over.

Eric’s not the same person. I used to love Anna to move on, and if you’re willing,

I’d like to move on with you.

Wendy. Hey, I told you I don’t need you to explain anything. Okay. It’s not like we’re a couple. Yeah. Well, yeah, but I mean, we’re, we’re what we kissed on New Year’s Eve. We haven’t even gone on a date yet. So if you’re hooking up Chanel, I mean, that’s totally, I told you I’m not hooking up with Chanel, but Allie said this.

Yeah, Allie said what she said because she’s in a fight with Chan. She wanted to mess things up with you to hurt me, so there’s nothing going on with you and Chanel.

Look, I wanna be honest with you, okay, last night at the hospital. I almost kissed her. Okay, so, so let me get this straight. You were upset with me for hanging out with Johnny while at the same time you were being consoled by Alex Kikis, one of the biggest players in town. You and Johnny were married. Okay.

And you had sex with Alex? We both did. Well, maybe you decided that you didn’t wanna share ’em after all. Maybe you wanted to turn our threesome into a twosome. I had Henry with me. We were just. Yeah, like Johnny and I were just talking and I’m sorry. No offense, but you sound like a total hypocrite. I never had feelings for Alex.

Okay. I know that. I’m just trying to make a point, which is I trust you Horton, so why the hell can’t you trust me? I mean, I’m not the one who’s cheated before, before.

That was really unfair. Yes, I cheated on trip, but I cheated on trip with you because you and I are meant to be together. I’m sorry, I shouldn’t have said that. No, you shouldn’t have. But I also shouldn’t have accused you of cheating with John.

Look, um, emotions are clearly running high right now and, um, maybe we should just stop before we say something that will regret, or something else that will regret. Yeah, so. Maybe we should take a little time apart.

Yeah, I think we could both use some space. I can go to my grandpa’s. No, no. Your family’s dealing with a lot right now. I’ll, uh, go pack a bag and I’ll go stand my. Okay, thanks.

You almost kissed your sister’s girl. . What does that mean? It means that we probably would have, if Fally didn’t walk in, oh gee, I wonder why your sister’s mad at you. It’s not like that. Okay. I was upset about my grandma Marlena Chanel was just comforting me. Oh. With her lips? No, I. I was the one who instigated it.

Right. Fuck. She used to be my wife. She used to be my wife. Okay. And in that moment, I, I, I don’t know. I guess I, I just, I needed to feel close to someone. Well, do you still have feelings for her? No. I mean, I’ll always care about her, you know, and if I’m being honest with myself, There’s probably something a little unresolved between us, but that doesn’t matter.

Seems like it does. No, it doesn’t because Chanel is committed to Allie and I, I really like you.

You do.

And if it’s all right with you, I’d really like to take you on that date. What do you say?

So what exactly it is moving on with me in town?

Do I really have to explain it to you? I mean, are we talking about a relationship or just a good old fashioned roll in the hay?

I dunno. Can we just figure it out as we go along? Of course. And for the record, I’m game fryer.

Because I have a feeling we’ve been down this road many times and to make a full on commitment, I dunno, it just would be a bit premature. Yeah, it was gonna say unwise . Agreed. So perhaps when you are feeling better, You and I can go out to dinner on a proper date, just the two of us. And see how things go from there.

I would love that. And it’s a date? Yes.

And would you just trust. When it comes to me and Nicole, the ship is sailed, doors has left the stable. Okay. Pick your cliche. It’s over. Well, I’m really sorry to hear that. No, no, no. Don’t be all right. It’s over. It’s time for us to both move on. Okay, Eric, but really, phone sit in the middle of an ugly battle with Paul Le and Chanel.

You know what? I really don’t want to talk about my love life. Right. How you doing? I’m hanging in. Well, how are things going? I mean, where are you at with the funeral arrangements? Well, I told you Kate didn’t want any fuss. Okay, so what about Aunt Kaylin and mom? Well, you can talk to John and Steven from what I understand.

There’s nothing more to do at this moment. I’m back. Hope I gave you guys enough time. Sore through things, definitely, and I will bring you out something less offensive to track

Well, don’t I just make fabulous first impressions.

I guess he wouldn’t risk contacting Ralph on his regular phone. He must have a burner around here somewhere.

I, let me see. Oh, he’s called this number a bunch of times. Must be.

Oh, hi. Yeah. Hi, Dr. Rolf. This is Gabby Hernandez. No, no, no. Do not hang up on me. I need your help and I’m not taking,

I’d really like to go out with you. You would. That’s great. That’s great. I’d really like to go out with. , but your life seems really complicated right now. I told you I’m not interested in Chanel. Not, no, it’s, it’s more than that. You’ve just lost both your grandmothers, you’ve got all this drama going on with your sister.

You, you should really be with your family right now. Okay. All right. Maybe you’re right. Maybe it’s not the ideal time to start a relationship, but is it ever maybe. I just, I wanna be sure we’re both in it for the right reasons.

Okay? Okay. How about this? All right, we both take some time. We, we, we, we take our time. I get to be with my family. We let the alley and Chanel thing cool off and then things are a little more settled down. I want to take you on that date.

Okay. I can live with that. Good. So we’re good? Yeah, we’re good.

Hey. Hey. So, uh, I was thinking that maybe you should. Take the next few days off from work too. Really? Yeah. You’re dealing with a lot with your grandma and your family needs you and you need them. Okay. If you’re sure we have enough coverage, I’m sure. Okay, thanks.

Well, uh, text me if you need anything. I.

Now this is more like it. I’m glad you’re finally satisfied. Hmm. I wouldn’t say satisfied. Okay. What’s the problem? Oh, there’s no problem. But, um, if you’d like to satisfy me, maybe you can come back to my place later tonight. That is, if you’re up for the challenge, always.

If you want, I can bring some.

Trust me, Rolf, if you do what I ask, you’ll be back in the good grace for Damaris and more importantly, your ass stays out of prison. Okay, so we have deal. Good. Now get to Salem asap.

Gabby, where are you going?

Look, like I said, Johnny, this really isn’t a good time. Yeah. Um, yeah. Okay. Uh, sorry to bother you. I will, um, see if I can track down Wendy at Damara. Fuck Chanel. If you want me to go, I’ll go. Okay. But I can see that you’re upset about something and we’re friends, right? We’re good friends, so if you wanna talk, we can talk about whatever bothering you.

Wouldn’t happen to have anything to do with my sister, would it? Maybe. So you guys didn’t patch things up? No, no. Last night when I got home, Alex was here with Allie and she, uh, she wanted to have another threesome.

Hey, how’s it going?

Sorry, am am I interrupting? I just thought that you know, Eric might want his phone back. I’m not surprised you left it at my place. We made quite the mess, didn’t we? I found it. Loft in a tangle of clothes and sheaths on my bed.

Woo. Hello? Is he around that guy? Nicole, you know what Sloan? You really are pathetic.

Hope you enjoy your little drinky j. Because after a few doses of this, you’re gonna start acting pretty strangely. In fact, your judgment’s gonna be so impaired that the Derion board will have no choice to remove you and I, for one can not. Wait,

I am so sorry that I had to do that, but plus me someday soon. You’re gonna thank me.

I thought it was grateful to the mountain, but well turns out here, the mountain

like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I am pathetic. Yeah. Because instead of handing Eric his phone discreetly you decided to broadcast it to not only me, but to every sale mite within a five mile radius. That you are a pathetic slut. Okay. What? Oh, I’m pathetic for enjoying and not feeling ashamed about my sex life. . Meanwhile, you’re out here throwing around very hurtful, antiquated slurs against women, real progressive.

Should I just go and call the town crier and tell ’em about my transgressions? You know what? I don’t care who you sleep with or how many who’s there are. Just have some class. Keep it to yourself. All right. Why don’t we just, you care very much about who I sleep with, Nicole. Oh, so much. Because this particular who happens to be you’re very handsome ex-husband.

The real question you should be asking yourself is why do I care? So Nicole, why is it because you still have the hots for Eric. Meanwhile, you’re out here drooling and panting over EJ Damira.

Oh, what did you have for breakfast? A bowling ball. Did you pull the champagne brother?

What the hell is going on here?

I just, what the hell do you think you’re doing it here? Easy. Just the person I wanted. Save your lies. It’s obvious what you’re doing in here. It. If you’re transparent, Gabby, I am. Yes. But I guarantee you Stefan will never submit to Deprogramming and you desperately sneaking into his home. Into my home to persuade him.

Otherwise will only result in you being charged with breaking an entry. I don’t think I broke anything regardless. Stephan’s feelings toward you were at one point ams, but that was a long time ago. And the sooner you give up on. Degrading enterprise That fine, fine. You got me. That’s exactly why I’m here.

Although I hardly think true love is a degrading enterprise. But what would you know about love more than you? I assure you. I also happen to be very well versed in the art of loathing present company included, and that’s all My brother feels toward you. Now, as one might say, I know it when I see it, and with Stephan, I see it.

He loaves you. I’m very, uh, aware of what he thinks. He feels about me. Thank you very much. You know, I don’t have to prove it to you or anybody else for that matter. What I know to be true and. A deep down beneath Wolf’s mind control manipulations. Your brother Stephan still loves me and we’re gonna be together again.

He’s gonna be mine forever.

bra, the performance. Well, you know what? Now if you excuse me, I’m gonna see myself out too. I don’t think. I’m not gonna have you wandering around these grounds unfettered and flip toward me gladly. As soon as I personally see you out the door myself. And we will be going through the front door, Joe.

Yeah, no, that sounds, that sounds lovely. I think she’d like that.

No. I can’t believe that we’re planning our funeral now. Yeah. Surreal. I know, dad. Thank you. I love you too.

Oh, oh. Bella, I was so sorry to hear about your mom. Thank you, Paulina. And I just spoke to my sister, Tammy earlier. Your your mom’s old college roommate. She’s devastated like all of us. She sends a love to you and to all your family.

What? You don’t have a gym in this mazz. Sadly we do not. Victor thinks exercise is a waste of time. He doesn’t like to break a sweat. I see. So what’s up? Surely you didn’t come by here to Just to watch me pump iron. Mm-hmm. Sorry for the blow. True ego, but no, I did not. Besides how would I even know that’s what you’d be doing?

Good point. Yeah. I came to drop by Henry off to see his uncle Will. But I’m actually really glad that I ran into you. I wanted to apologize. Apologize. For what happened last night at my place.

Another threesome. Oof. Yes. And uh, Allie wanted it to happen again. Yes, but the only reason she said that was because she wanted to get back at me because we almost. She was so upset with me, and then I tried to talk to her about it again, and then we got into this huge fight.

Oh, sweetheart, you don’t know anything about me or about me and ej. All right. Okay. All right. No, you’re right. I don’t, but as previously established before, I, I do happen to know Eric and rather intimately. And I know that he, he doesn’t want you, so I think it’s best for all parties involved. If you stop being so desperate, throwing yourself up.

All right. Oh God, it’s not the both of you. Oh

God. Eric, you know what? I know you’re craving and maybe that’s what’s affecting your judgment, but there is no excuse for the horrible person that you’ve become. And if you ever break whatever spell you’re under, I have no doubt that you will regret laying eyes or any other body part on her. She’s a lot, some awful bitch.

I’m really sorry about your mother.

Finally, peace, quiet.

Where did you disappear to? No, rather, I don’t blame you. If I had a happy like that stalking you. I disappeared too. Step I just, you can come out now.

Thanks. We do for love,

Allie with me. You are never going to have to apologize for offering up a threesome. That is my solemn vow. All right. Very funny, but I dragged you into a fight between me and Chanel. That wasn’t fair. Don’t worry about it Serious. , but keep me on the list for future invitations. Alex, come on,

Did you two make up after I left? To what? No, that’s the thing. We slept in separate beds and then we barely talked this morning. You know, when we did talk, it just led to another fight. Oh, it sucks. I’m sorry to hear that. Yeah, but I did get Chanel to admit one thing. She admitted that when I caught her and Johnny at the hospital.

They were about to kiss. Come on. You and I both know what happened at the hospital. Man. Nothing. Right? I, I, I was upset about my grandma Marlena, and you were just comforting me. Look, I told you, you should just let me talk to Allie. Don’t trust me. You are the last person Allie wants to see right now with me being the one possible exception.

I’m sorry, Chanel, I just, I couldn’t deny it anymore. And then Allie pushed me into a corner and then she forced me to admit that what she thought almost happened almost happened.

My family is here for your family. Anything we can do, please, please let us know. Alina, thank you so much. That means a lot. Well, I don’t wanna keep you. I should be going anywhere. I have to call my attorney who’s dealing with some frivolous litigation. Hello? Well, if you don’t mind me asking, who’s suing you?

Who else? Sloan Peterson. That’s sadistic. Little Wish has slapped me with the civil suit.

You sure you’re okay? Mm-hmm. . This, the blow that your ex gave was superficial, but I gave as good as I got. I’m totally necessary. I was bringing you your phone, Eric, and I appreciate it. Listen, how in return I buy you breakfast. Now you don’t have to do that. No strings attached. Just we are. I mean, I owe you for all the, the beer, the takeout, you know, the visits to your place.

So come on. What did you say? Fine, after today, I could use four.

I assume you went to the office. You okay? No, I’m not. Okay. How fool is what I am. Yeah. I went to see Eric to give him my condolences and, and tell him how sorry I was about his mother and, and then Sloan flew in on her broom bragging to everyone with an earshot that she slept with.

Yeah, Stephan pulled him so we could toast to him taking his place by my side as CO c e o Deir. Congratulations, Stephan. But he seems to have disappeared, so now you and I will toast to Sloane Peterson. Oh, there’s no way in Helen Toast that bitch. You didn’t let me finish. Take it

to Sloan for moving in on the holier than thou hypocrite Eric Brady and to you for moving on from set. Hypocrite. She deserves Soon you deserve better.

Both of them, Johnny and Chanel are sticking to their lame excuse that he was upset about my grandma and she was consoling him. Alex, I’m upset about my grandma too, but you don’t see me making out with the person standing right in front of me. Of course not. Like, I’m not going after Johnny’s girlfriend, but I also can’t cut my brother outta my life forever, especially with everything going on in our family right now.

But I also don’t wanna worry that he’s always gonna be chasing after my girlfriend, and I don’t wanna worry about Chanel betraying me.

That’s it. All right, I’m gonna go find Allie. I’m gonna talk to John. No, wait. Wait, I told you I don’t want you to do that. I know, I know. Okay. But this, this almost kiss, it meant nothing. And whatever something there was, it was on me. All right. Allie needs to know that she’s already used to the idea of me being an insensitive jerk so I can get her past this.

Trust me. And I know my sister Johnny.

I can’t let you take all the blame for this. Yes. Yes, you did lean in to kiss me. That was you, but I didn’t stop it. And if I’m being totally honest with myself in that moment, I didn’t want to.

But then, Everything you did to stop the extradition order and you saved me and my daughter, Sloane, has turned around and filed a civil suit for wrongful death. Paulina, why didn’t you come to me right away? You know what hell I mean after everything you’ve been going through. Oh, well, I appreciate that, but work actually helps me deal with all of it.

Gets my mind off things. Please let me help you and Chan. It’ll help me too. I’m well, I’d be thrilled to add you to the team, but are you sure? I am positive. I like you almost as much as I hate Sloane Peterson. So what do you say? I’d say the feelings. Mutual . Why don’t you, uh, let me treat you to breakfast.

We’ll talk strategy about how to take that off a lady now.

You were right. I told you I’d make a mean pancake. No, about Nicole. Provoking Nicole. Um, it was a mistake. Oh, that, I know I shouldn’t be looking for trouble, but she just makes it so easy to get under her skin and knock her off balance. And I hate to admit it, but maybe I am a little jealous. Oh, you were a little jealous, huh?

Well, it’s very clear that she still has feelings for you. Sloan, but what’s not clear is Eric, do you still have feelings for her?

How are you feeling? Any better? Yes, I’m feeling much better. Thank you. So you want to tell me what happened between you and Ms. Sloan Peterson? That woman is beyond smug. . Okay. So she saw me hugging Eric, and I really was just consoling him. Look, I’ve known him for half my life. She’s known him for what?

Five minutes. She harassed you for hugging her boyfriend Eric. Hugging. Eric, sorry. She went to the pub to give him his. and instead of handing it to him like an adult and excusing herself, she used it as an opportunity to gloat about how he’s a another notch on her bed post. And she made an uncomfortable situation even worse by making lewd and inappropriate insinuations about.

About, about us, you and me. Oh,

uh, Nicole. Maybe that’s, we’re doing a little bit. Ooh. Hmm. I can hold my liquor.


Who did this? Who are you?

That would be me.

All right, Alex. Now I know I’m the last person to give any type of relationship advice. Because the one serious relationship I had or that wanted to have, I found every which way possible to ruin it. But I’ve seen you and Chanel together more than most people, probably more than anybody ever really think about it.

But you going, the point is, I have seen you and Chanel together. I see how much she loves you. She adores you and that’s why she chose to be with you over Johnny. Her and Johnny were married. They were married. They’re not married anymore. Okay? So please listen to me. You are beautiful. You were smart, you’re funny, and you’re way hotter than your brother.

I always thought So , that is so, that is a fact. You can e in stone. That is never. Probably the hottest girl I’ve ever been with, and I’ve been with a lot of girls. Is that weird to say? Yeah. Oh no. You know what? No, that actually, that actually makes me feel a lot better. Well, good. Very good. So why don’t you go home and make up with your girlfriend

you wanted to kiss. Maybe I shouldn’t have said that, but in that moment, I just look, I, I love Allie and I am totally committed to her, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t still feel something for you.

Well, um, you know, I, I loved you once too.

So then, uh, what are we gonna do about this lingering attraction?

There’s always going to. Some sort of connection between me and Nicole. There always will be. You know, we’ve had enough chances to make it right. We’ve had more than enough chances to make it right. We never did, and even will, if we were in court, I would ask the judge to instruct the witness to answer the question, which was, do you still have feelings for Nicole?

I don’t see how anyone could have an appetite in this pub. With you sitting here, you better get used to my presence, Ms. Price. After all, we’re gonna be stuck in a courtroom together very soon. Speaking of which, I can’t wait to see what Joker you hired to argue your daughter’s defense. And yours. Oh, well, the weight is over, Ms.

Peterson. I am the joker who’s already beat you once and well, I could beat you again with my hands tied behind my back,

just, just bleeding the call. I’ll have Harold clean it up. Oh gosh. I, uh, I don’t know what happened. I just got a bit oozy there for a second, but I’m fine now.

Oh God. I just hate that. I let that bitch get me so upset, Nicole. Don’t give her that power over you. She’s a cold-blooded lawyer. She knows exactly how to elicit an emotional reaction from you and throw you off ballots. It’s her job.

You’re right. I, I certainly just don’t wanna give her the satisfaction of getting me upset and getting to me. I,

but on the other hand, Why should I deny myself the satisfaction of going over there and ripping every little hair on of her head? Well far be from me to tell someone to deny the Docker impulses. But Nicole,

Nicole, let’s, let’s, let’s, let’s get you upstairs. Let’s get you upstairs.

Ah, my head is killing me. Psycho. I’m sorry. I, I’m, I didn’t wanna hit you so hard on your head, but it’s fine. We know that there isn’t gonna be any permanent damage. Us. We both know how thick your skull is. You crazy. Hey, you know, I’m not the one here with the mental problems, and since you already told me that you no longer wanna find Ralph to undo some mental problems, I, I felt that desperate action was required because I’m not giving up on us.

Okay. Maybe we should open up discussions again about . Nice tray, smart guy. Listen, you’re not gonna get out of it this time, whether you liked it or not. We’re gonna fix that thick skull of yours and then, then we’re gonna see where your heart lies.

There you go. Better? Yes, it’s much better. Just lie down and rest. Stay with you if you’d like. Thank you, ej. I just. I think I’m just gonna lie down for a minute. I, I usually hold my liquor with the best of what’s

is nothing.

You’re a smart. Dynamic and

very beautiful woman.

Eric Grady is a fool. He never should have let you go.

What is your problem, Eric? Our mother just died and you’re, you’re just here hanging out with her. All right. Why don’t you not question me or my decisions, and I won’t question why you’re out. Ambulance chasing ambulance. Where’s there an ambulance? This is an, this is an attack on good people and a frivolous lawsuit with absolutely no merit whatsoever.

Why don’t you stop grandstanding and say it for the c. I’m not on the jury, but I’ve seen enough to know that you are on the wrong side of this. Sloan is an injured party here, and having lost the mother too soon, I can relate. And so should you stunt irreparable harm to Sloan, not the other way around.

Chanel took her mother away and Paulina covered it up. It’s in the story.

Ah, nice friends for you. If you want aspirin, are you out of your mind? First off, I will never, ever ingest anything from you as long as I live. Secondly, I’m timing. Lemme go. Okay, stop. It’s my turn. Now. First of all, settle down. Second of all, it’s just aspirin, Stephan. Okay? If I’m not gonna. Oh, you are unbelievable.

Thank you. See this. This is exactly why I abandoned any, any possibility, however, slim of ever getting back with you, your psychotic drive to take what you want in your incessant need to get your way, you know, step and fall. Actually, you don’t know because Rolf scrub your brain, but all the reasons that you’ve given me for not wanting to be with me.

Are there reasons why couldn’t live without me? My relentlessness, my, my passion, my drive, my desire to, to fight for what is mine, to defend what I think is mine. That’s what you loved about me. You couldn’t get enough. Oh, right. So then I should be forced to be someone I’m not against. My will is, To undergo some weird experimental therapy to re brainwash me so I can start feeling feelings that I don’t feel anymore or love Stephan for the love that I know is in there.

The love that was taken away from you. Es your will. Okay, Gabby, listen up. I don’t want to be with you and I never will. I know that you believe that. It hurts me to hear you say this, but I know it’s the brainwashing talking, and I know you don’t wanna be tied to this chair, but I had no option. We’re gonna get through this together, and once it’s done, you’re gonna see that it was all worth it, I promise.

How Gabby, how is this gonna work? Huh? Marlena is dead. Rolf has disappeared. Your husband Lee ought of that. So without Rolf the only person who can undo his own handiwork, I don’t see how I look. You’re right about one thing. My love. Yes. We don’t know where. But as you just said, we do know somebody who does.

Hi Lee, it’s Gabby. I really need to see you.

What? Well, normally I would just ghost you, but. , seeing as I’m in love with your twin sister. I don’t really see that happening. And really I prefer not to be ghosted regardless of how complicated this may be, fair. So I guess we’ll just have to be a little more careful around each other from now on, and I promise not to lean in anymore deal, and I promise not to lean back or not to lean away.

or no, not to lean into Well, you get the picture. Yeah. So what’s the deal?

I really care about you Shael, and I really care about my sister and we were able to overcome this little triangle we had a while back. And I don’t want to come between the two of you again. Besides, I think this thing with Wendy could be, uh, could be really. I’m happy for you. I’m happy for you too and for Allie.

Um, look, I know you guys are gonna figure this out. Okay. Thanks.

Normally I would defend my daughter to the death and put ignorant, mean-spirited people in their place. But out of respect for your mama, I’m not going to do that. Let’s just go to Julie’s place instead. Oh,

maybe I should get going myself. What? Why? It turns out these breakfast benefits aren’t really that beneficial first, Nicole, and now. I don’t wanna be the person that comes between you and your sister, please. It’s nothing that I can’t handle science. I like having you around.

Thank you for saying that, ej. That’s always nice to.

Especially these days,

and you know, you are, uh, you’re right about Sloan. I mean, I, I don’t need to go over there and engage with Sloan. It’s exactly what she wants. Why should I give into. You shouldn’t.

You know what? It’s a hell with Eric Sloan can have him. I don’t need him anymore.

I wanna have you.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Okay. Horton. Enough of a silent treatment. You’re the one who didn’t say good morning. Okay. You’re the one who slept in Henry’s room last night. Whatever. No, not whatever. We need to talk about this. Fine talk.

What are you waiting for, Dupree? Just minute it. While my grandmother was dying, you were busy macing on my brother.

So you’re saying I can’t come visit my mother anymore?

No, no. Dr. Ricker, of course. I wouldn’t want to upset her in her condition. I was just hoping that we could

just call me if anything changes. Okay. Thanks.

Well, look, I know you’re busy, so I’ll let you go. I just, I wanted to tell you how sorry I am about Marlena and Kate too. I mean, so incredibly sad. Of course. Hey, listen, if you need me to pick up Ari, just let me know. Okay. I’m here. Whatever you need.

Oh, what the hell do you want?

Morning, father, don’t you look at me like that? I know you don’t approve of me going after my brother ej, but if you’ll remember, EJ struck first. He knew exactly what Lian had done to me, and he didn’t say a word. So I know while you vehemently disapprove of one dera going after another, think you’ll agree.

In this instance, this particular Dera is there to pay.

Rolf, what the hell are you calling me? You. You need more Petri dishes. You can’t be serious. Okay? Okay, fine. I’ll get you whatever you want. Just make sure you don’t forget about our deal. If anyone asks about ej, I never had anything to do with Stefan’s brainwashing. Got it.

I have to go


I was just on my way to the office. Oh, then I’ve saved you a trip. I don’t understand. Let me be more clear. You’re fired.

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Johnny, Hey. Sorry. I, uh, just dropped in like this. Open. I didn’t. Interrupt breakfast? No. No. Uh, my dad just went out to talk to the priest about his service, and Steph and Joey just went with him. Huh? Did you wanna come in? If it’s okay? Yeah.

Look man, I, I, uh, I know you got a lot going on, so I’m gonna make this quick. I, I said some things last night, some, uh, some unkind things about your mother, which was unfair and uncalled for. Look, whatever Ava did I know, I know it wasn’t your fault and I was just, I was upset about my grandma Marlena, and I took it out.

Look, I, I was way outta line trip and uh, I just wanted to come say that. I’m sorry,

Nicole. Good morning. Morning coffee. I’d love some. Yes.

Thank you. You are welcome.

It’s the brew not to your liking. Oh, no, it’s, it’s delicious. But I was curious about something, what’s. Well, when I walked in, I couldn’t help but notice you talking to Stephanie’s portrait, something about making Ed Zamira pay. Which one were you referring to?

Stephan. Who were you telling your father you wanted to get back? Kristen, of course Kristen don’t sound so surprised. Nicole. She conspired with Lee Shin to have me brainwashed, but she’s already facing pretty severe punishments considering it’s all but certain that she will be charged with murdering Kate and Kayla.

And next she’s going to be charged with murdering marle evidence. What you haven’t heard,

it’s been all over the news. I, I, I turned my alerts off of. What are you saying? Marlena died

last night.

You let me sleep in? Mm. I figured you could use a little rest after last night. , that’s more than I expected. So my mother’s obituary, oh, she lived an amazing life. But Eric, I gotta say, I mean, some of the stuff in here, it’s pretty wild. I think that the spectator needs some better fact checkers. Well, I’m sure it’s all.

Papers owned by our family’s friend. Well, no offense to your family’s friend, but it says something in here about your mom being a serial killer. I mean, that is a liable suit in itself. I mean, just let me show you what, it’s all right now. I’d rather do this.

Well, are you just gonna stand there or do you plan on telling me why you.

Gabby, I,

I know that you’re upset with me and you have every right to be, but I just wanted to come by and apologize again for my brother to, to Stephan. Anything else? Just that Okay. I didn’t agree with it when I heard, I was actually pretty horrified. Yes. Getting inside someone’s head and manipulating their feelings, playing God like that.

Oh, you must not been too upset since you didn’t bother to tell me. I wanted to. I swear. I mean, I came close so many times. Keeping that secret was agonizing. You know what’s agonizing, Wendy? Finding out that the man that you married is a two-face criminal and that the woman that you asked to stand up for you at your wedding is a damn liar.

They begged me to stay. He was so afraid of losing you. You know, I’m glad it all came out. I, it’s honestly such a huge relief. What if it hadn’t? Hmm? What if, um, what if I didn’t remember that, uh, that wolf told me that Lee tried to kill Stephen in his sleep, or that, or that Lee had ordered Ralph to, to make Stephan hate me?

What then edman, would you have kept me in the dark forever?

I don. You dunno, , you just wanted leave me happy and you made him happier than anyone has in his entire life. And I couldn’t take that away. He’s my big brother. I love him.

But I know that’s no excuse. I just came by to tell you that I know what I did was wrong.

Hmm. We both know you can’t fire me. Why not? Last I checked, I was c e O of Damir, and you have me to thank for that. I was the one who got you the votes needed to give Gabby the boot and take back control of the company. On behalf of the entire Demira family allowed me to express my sincere gratitude for all your years of service, which I’ve determined is no longer needed effective immediately.

Now, let me be clear. I’m going to remain in my position as your number two with your enthusiastic support. Most, of course, you want Steph. Find out about your role in his brainwashing. You see, that’s the thing, Lee, he already knows. Excuse me. I told my brother everything, and now since you no longer have anything to hold over me, you’re out.

What do you want me to say that I was kissing Johnny? It’s the truth. No, isn’t it? Look, Henry is still asleep, but he could wake up any minute. So why don’t you just admit what you did and we can all move on with our day. I’m not going to admit something I didn’t do. Chanel, I saw you when I got off the elevator.

You and Johnny sprung apart like you had been caught because you had, I was comforting him. That’s all you’re gonna gimme the comforting him line. I know that line. I’ve used that line on trip when you and I had sex behind his back. Okay. I know what you think you saw. Stop. Stop it. Because the more that you try and make me seem crazy and paranoid, the more insulting it is.

So if you have any respect for me whatsoever, you’ll just admit what is obviously going on and tell me the damn truth. When I got off that elevator, you and Johnny were about.

Yes, we were.

Finally, you admit it. You did wanna kiss Johnny. I’m sorry. No, don’t be because now I know how you really feel and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate you having the courtesy to tell me. Okay. It wasn’t like that. I was really comforting him. Right. With your lips. No, I totally get that. Could you please just let me tell you what happened?

Yeah. Okay. Go for it. Oh, but um, just how steamy does it get, should I make popcorn? Allie, please. I am listening. So I, I went to the hospital looking for you, and then I ran into Johnny and then we started talking and then I got your text saying that you had gone home. So I was getting ready to leave. And then your grandpa John came running over to us, right?

Yeah. Because he wanted you to set up the rooftop for him and Grandma Marlina. I already know all of this. Okay, but what you don’t. Is that the whole time we were up there, Johnny was trying so hard to stay positive, and then we saw your grandmother in a wheelchair and she just looked so weak and pale.

And Johnny, he just, he kept smiling, but I could just see how sad he was and how scared he was. And as soon as we got back downstair. He, he lost it and I hugged him and we talked about your grandparents and, and about how blessed they were to have found each other and about how tragic it was that it had to end this way.

And after that, I, I don’t really remember what happened, but. Johnny, he, uh, he leaned forward to kiss me. So now you’re blaming it on him. I’m not blaming anyone. I’m just telling you what happened. Your brother, he was a wreck and emotions, they were running high and, and it just was like, it just, it happened in the heat of the moment.

It just said, what does it mean? It doesn’t mean anything. Okay, Atley. I am in love with you. I chose you. The whole reason I went to the hospital in the first place was to be there for you. I know you’re in pain, okay? And Molly, you need support right now and I wanna give you that support. I really do. I really wanna be there for you to help you, cuz I know you’re dealing with all this loss.

So please, Allie, can we please just forget about this?

Huh? That depends on what you say, that I’m the one you wanna be with, that you chose me and that what happened with Johnny last night was meaningless.

But to almost kiss somebody, that means that there’s attraction there. So tell me, are you still attracted to my brother?

Okay. I appreciate the apology. You taking the time to come by, that means a lot. Yeah. Yeah, of course. Look, I don’t blame you for being angry at my mom. I, I, I love her, but I’m also very aware that she’s done some truly terrible things. She’s sick and I kick myself every day for not being here, for not knowing how bad it was and not getting her the help that she needed sooner.

She’s at, uh, Bayview now, right? Yeah. She’s not getting out anytime soon. I’m sorry. Between, between that and losing Kaylee, you’re having a pretty rough time too, and, uh, hitting you. That was, it was not cool. Yeah, don’t worry about it. I didn’t take a swing at you first. . Oh, I should, uh, I should probably get going.

Um, give your family my condolences. Same. So we’re good. We’re good. All.

You told stuff in the truth. Mm-hmm. , he must be furious with you. Quite the contrary. He was very understanding. He understood that his own brother stabbed him in the back. Well, he wasn’t happy about it, of course, but he sees the bigger picture. By reclaiming Demira from an unqualified interloper, I’ve saved the company and preserved our legacy for generations to come.

You’re saying Stephan approved of your portrayal. I’m saying he respected it, and more importantly, he forgave me. And from now on, we’ll be running the company together as co CEOs. All in the family as it should be. . Funny you should mention family. You are aware that my father’s chairman of the demerit board, he’s not gonna like this.

True. True. He’s a very proud man. And you’ve embarrassed him terribly. I mean, he’s not going to like that. I’m being dismissed. He’ll never stand for it. I’m not sure what he can do. Seeing as you tried to murder my brother and subsequently had him brainwashed by a mad scientist. There’s no evidence of that.

Well, not yet. And in the meantime, there is a very decent chance Kristen could flip on you to save her own ass. You, the cops, your crazy sister, have nothing on me. Therefore, my father’s gonna make the case the very strong case to the shareholders and the board that until, unless I’m proven guilty of a crime.

I deserve to remain right where I am. Hmm. Wayne May be a formidable businessman, but he is not a demir. His opinion will never hold the same weight as ours. Are you willing to stake your company on it? I am in Indeed because the C E O I have every right to make this decision, which I’m sure I’ll have broad support in making, and I can always call on my voting block if I have.

Bottom line is whether you end up in prison may be an open question, but whether you have a job is not.

Good luck in all your future endeavors.

Oh, and uh, flee.

Let this be a lesson.

You don’t cross a demeanor and get away with it.

Fine. I accept your apology. Did you hear what I said? Do you want me to change my mind? No, no, no. Of course not. Thank you so much, Gabby. Thank you. Are those for me? Yeah. I thought they could be peace offering. Pretty lame, right? I would’ve preferred to design a handbag, but I do need Lily’s.

So what happens now? With who? With Stephan? Is he going to be Deprogrammed? Now that everything’s out in the open, you could do that. . We could, but Stephan’s not interested. He was at first, but he changed his mind. Why would happen? As you may know, after we got over our initial hurdle in this whole nightmare, you know, having Stephan believe that he was actually brainwashed and he finally did after Johnny told him that he went to Jakarta with you.

Yeah. That was huge. Yeah, it was for the first time after Stephen came back to life, he was actually nice. Sympathetic, almost caring. He said that now that he knew the truth, he understood how horrible this has all been for me. And he even apologized for hurting me. Must have been so happy to hear him say that.

Except he also told me that his, uh, feelings for that cow Chloe Lane are also real. But instead of arguing about how ludicrous that is, you know, I just told him we should find Dr. Rolf, have him undo what he did, and then he could decide if he still. And Stephan agreed. Yeah. Yes. Until we found out that Dr.

Rolf was in my, a disappeared without a trace. So I had one option left. The esteemed Dr. Evans, I, I went to see if she could help when yesterday is, I know that she was dying, but I had no choice. Okay. Well, what did she say? Brady wouldn’t let me in, which is a huge mistake because if anybody believes in the power of love, it’s Marlena.

I mean, if she could have helped, she would have, but now it’s, it’s too late. I’m sorry. I thought I was doing a good thing. I thought I was doing what Stephan wanted, but what I wanted too for him to remember what we had so that we could be together. But when he found out what I did that, and I even turned to Marlena, he was angry.

Oh, he was more than angry. He was repulsed. He says he never wants to see my face again.

I can’t believe she’s gone. Yeah, it did happen stunningly fast and the impact of her loss is so much greater than I could have possibly imagined. What do you. Well, her pit was picked up by every paper across the globe, and initially I thought Marlena was just a small town shrink, but hardly that’s so I learned she was one of the most well-respected psychiatrists in the world, and her impact didn’t just reach her patients, her colleagues or friends, and her children.

Thinking about Eric

Nicole, are you thinking about Eric? Of course. I’m thinking about Eric. I’m thinking about all of Marlena’s children, including Eric and Sammy and Bell and Brady. Right? Okay. Yeah. I wonder what’s keeping ej, isn’t he at the office? I asked him to, uh, take care of something for me first. Oh, that can’t be good.

Hmm. No, it’s a very good thing, Nicole. I asked him to fire Lee Shin on your. Oh, it was the least he could do. Considering he newly brainwashed me and didn’t say a word to me for months. AJ knew about that. Yeah. After the fact he came clean last night. Oh my God. I, I had no idea. Yeah. Nice try, Nicole. I’m. I have heard that you are a very gifted liar, but your acting skills use a little tune up.

Clearly you are fainting surprised about ej, just like you were pretending to care exclusively about Eric. Wow, I have to go to work. Hmm? You do that.

That’s it. No. Round two. I’d love to, but I can’t. All those shots you did last night, finally catching up to you. No, it’s not that. It’s just that my family is arranging my mother’s services and as much as I live to stay here with you, I need to go home and help. And of course, but just remember if you need to work through anything, I’m here for you.

Hey, Eric,

step doesn’t know me at all. Thanks. I’m this completely cruel, selfish person, person. Look, you can’t let what he said upset you. He didn’t mean any of it. Of course he didn’t. And he only said it because, oh, he hates me because of the, the brainwashing. But if he’s just got deprogrammed, he’d still love me.

But if he still hates me, he’s never gonna get deprogrammed. So I’m stuck.

You know? It’s too bad that you can’t make him do it. You mean force him? You mean, how would I do? Well, you just said s Stephan’s not in his right mind. I’m not a lawyer, but I would think that if you could have a mentally ill person committed, I mean there must be some way you can compel s Stephan to get the brainwashing reversed.

You mean get a court order? I don’t know. Maybe not. Maybe the best strategy would be to put on a full court. Okay. Get everyone who knows and loves Stephan to convince him he has to do this. Like an intervention. Yeah. But make it all about him. Like how doing this could give him back control of his thoughts, his feelings, his life.

And then once he has that, he can make whatever choices he wants. And of course he choose to be with you. Yeah. But even if Stefan gave consent, I. Well, I’d still be stuck because Marlene’s gone, Ralph’s in the wind. We have nobody to fix the damage. So no, I’m, I’m completely out of moves. Oh,

well, I’ve imposed on you long enough.

Anything else? Well, I guess I’m just a little surprised about what I’ve seen, how hard you fight for what you want. It’s one of the things I admire most about you. I never expected Gabby Hernandez to give up.

Wendy. Hey, that time, no, no. What’s going on? No. I just came by to see how you’re doing after last night. Oh my God. You’re fine. . No, no. Don’t worry about it looks worse than it is. Oh, I still can’t believe Johnny hit you. Oh, I actually just came by to apologize. good. I mean, I know he’s upset about his grandmother, but he can’t just go around punching people.

Ah, well, to be fair, I took a swing at him first. Yeah. After he said some horrible stuff about your mother, he actually apologized about that as well. Said that he was upset about Marlena and that he lashed out at me. Yeah. With his fist. I didn’t like it, but I get it. John just lost somebody who he really loved.

Am I still attracted to Johnny? What kind of question is that? I don’t know. You’re talking about emotions being high and things happening in the heat of the moment, so to me that sounds like there’s still chemistry there. Okay. Well you wanna talk about chemistry? Well, what about you and Alex? Me and Alex, yeah.

The other night when I came home, you two looked pretty cozy together. Drinking beers, hanging out. So what you wanna tell me that you’re not attracted to him? We were talking. But I’m thinking that maybe you wanted to do a little more than that considering that you asked for another threesome.

You know, it’s too bad that you can’t make him do it. You just said Stefan’s not in his right mind. I’ve seen how hard you fight for what you want. I never expected Gabby from N to give up

Wendy’s, right? I can’t just sit back and accept this. I have to freaking do something and I will.

So it’s done. Hardly take it. Oh, he made a lot of noise about how there’s no proof he did anything wrong, that his daddy’s chairman of the board, blah, blah, blah, blah. But rest assure. You don’t have to worry about having that trader in your midst any longer, Glen, hear. And even better, as soon as we finalize that paperwork, you and I will officially be co-CEOs of the mirror, which is a way it should have been all along headway, not intervened so unnecessarily.

And with the brothers de mirror back in charge, this guy’s the limit. Hmm. Sounds like reason to celebrate. Mm. Should I grab a fresh bottle of champagne from the cellar? We can toast to our future. Huh Uh. It’s a bit early, isn’t it? Oh, I’ll make you a mimosa . Okay. Okay. That, uh, that sounds lovely. I just need to email the paperwork to the lawyers and I’ll be right back.

Sounds good.

You’re throwing a threesome comment back in my face. You know, I didn’t mean that. Well, you sounded pretty serious to me. I was trying to make a point by airing out our private business in front of Alex. Do you know how uncomfortable you made him? Please? He doesn’t care. Okay. Well, I do. You made it sound like I’m unfulfilled in our relationship.

That was me. Me. No, no, no. You’re not gonna turn this back around on me. You are the one who almost kissed Johnny. Okay. And you brought Alex home. Alex took me home after he ran into me in the square and saw how upset I was about my grandmother and didn’t want me to be alone. Okay, I understand that. So why can’t you understand what happened with me?

Because Tony’s not some rando that you’re never gonna see again. He’s your ex-husband. Okay. Ex as informer as in no longer happening, right? Except for the whole comforting him. Well, have you ever thought that maybe I need some comforting too. I mean, I, I, if you’ve forgotten, I was recently arrested for murder.

The charges were dropped. Yeah, but it isn’t over. Sloane Peterson is suing me and mama in civil court, and she’s made it very clear that she is out for revenge as she’s not going to stop until she ruins both of our lives. So yeah, I’m kind of having a hard time right now. Oh. And I’m. I lost both of my grandmothers right before walking in on my twin brother, about to shove his tongue down my girlfriend’s throats at Lee.

No, I don’t wanna talk about this anymore. I have a ton of things to do. Oh, so that’s it. You’re just gonna walk away. Yeah. I need to go help with my grandma’s arrangements, so I’m gonna go get Henry dressed and then we’re out here

On your mom? Yeah. I just spoke to her doctors. Um, they asked me to stay away. They think seeing me might somehow trigger. Oh, no, I just, I feel so helpless. You know, I, I, I can’t go see my mom. I, I could have gone with my dad and my siblings to talk to the priest about care service, but that also didn’t really feel right.

But weren’t you closest with your stepmom? Yeah, I mean, over the past few years, I mean, she was like a mother to me, but. At a time like this, I just, I don’t know. It feels inappropriate to group myself in with Steph and Joey. I’m sure they wouldn’t mind. I know, I know. I just don’t intrude.

I don’t know what to do with myself honestly, Wendy. I am. I’m lost.

That’s okay. With grief illness. There’s no roadmap how you find your way outta it. I’m not sure you ever do completely, but I think in time it gets better.

So for now, I should just want stay calm. Keep putting one foot in front of the other and eventually

you’ll end up exactly where you belong.


hi. Hey. I just heard about your mother. I’m so sorry. Thanks. That’s such a terrible loss. Senseless, and, and shocking, and I can’t imagine what you’re feeling right now. I, I feel numb. It makes sense.

I should inside. Of course. Um, Aaron, before you go,

nevermind, what

would it be Okay if I gave you a hug?

Yeah, of course you can gimme hug. Are you sure? Yeah.

Eric. Hey, Sloan. Sorry, didn’t mean to interrupt Nicole. Hello Sloan. Is everything okay? No, everything’s fine. You just left your phone in my bed.

Johnny, look, this, this really isn’t a good time right now. I, and actually until things cool down, we should probably stay away from each other. I came here to see Wendy. Oh, uh, sorry. Um, yeah, she’s not here. Where’s she? I don’t know. She left pretty early this morning, but I’m not sure where she went. Can I get you some ice for that eye?

I noticed that it doesn’t hurt.

Hold you. Okay. Tough guy. Hmm. I’m just glad that Johnny apologized. I’ve kind of been on an on an apology toward myself this morning. Oh yeah? Yeah. And who’s on your route? Mm. , how did that go? Well, first I thought she was gonna slam the door in my face. Mm-hmm. , but uh, and she heard me out and in the end forgave me.

Nice. I just wish I could help her with stuff. And you know, he refuses to get the brainwashing reversed. What? Why? Long story. But even if Gabby could convince him to get to be programmed, there’s no one who could actually do it. So she’s stuck with him hating her. That sucks. I know. I just feel so bad that there’s nothing she can do.

Hope you enjoy your little drinky J because after a few doses of this, you’re gonna start acting pretty strangely. In fact, your judgment’s gonna be so impaired. The mayor board will have no choice to remove you. An eye for one can not wait.

 I am gonna do without you.

So, uh, I guess I should ask you.

Oh, man. What, um, breaking news reports about grandma makes it pretty real. Yeah. I think I know how you feel when I lose my big mama. I am gonna fall apart. And then you lost your Aunt Kayla and your Grandpa Roman wife and my, uh, my other grandma. It’s, it’s just like, when, when does it end? You know, what’s,

you said that you wanted to ask me something? Uh, yeah. Yeah. You, um, you never told me what happened with you and Allie after I. Well, I was sitting alone when you found me here tonight, so that should tell you everything you need to know.

Dave, I’m, I’m so sorry. I was not looking where I was going. You neither.

Oh. Oh yeah. I’m so sorry for your loss. Thank you. I’m sorry for yours too. Grandma meant so much to so many people. Yes, you did. This day is just the worst look. I’d like to have a seat and sit down and talk. You know, I don’t think anything that I would say would make much sense right now. If I just go on a walk, try and clear my head.

You do what you need to do. Do you know if, uh, if John’s still here? Yeah, I think he’s up on the roof. Um, that’s where she, that’s where she died, so I think he could really use an old friend right now. I figured.

I know you’re gonna be up there. You’ve been looking out for all of.

Where am I?

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Hey, Steph. It’s me, a k, a jackass. I know I have no right to be asking anything of you right now, but

could you maybe. Try giving me a chance to make this up to you. I’m talking groveling here. You and I had something great going and I don’t want to give up on that.

That’s all I wanted to say.

I know I should have called first. No, it’s okay. Come on in.


Oh, I, I don’t know how so many terrible things can happen to one family in such a short time. I just wanted to tell you in person how sorry I am and, and I brought you something that you and your daddy can stick in the oven and heat up for. Thank you so much.

What’s the least I could do ever know that you’ve been there for me when I needed help. I really appreciate you bringing that in person. Um, actually, uh, that’s not the only reason I can, yeah. Oh yeah, Stephanie. I need your connections now more than ever.

Knock it off. I’m coming.

At least you didn’t bring the kid with you this time. No. Rachel’s situation is the only thing in my family that seems to be under control. What does that? My mother died today.

I don’t understand what’s happening. I was on the roof with John. Join John. John, are you here?


Is this a political problem? Because now that the new governor’s been sworn in, you can’t change your mind about No, no, no, no. I didn’t change my mind. I’m saying here in Salem and, and I’m at war and for chandel’s sake, I cannot lose.

So. I told Allie that the only reason I went to the hospital was to see if she was all right. Something tells me that didn’t make much of a difference. She can’t get over walking in on us. Did did you happen to tell her that? I had just realized that my grandmother was about to die and that’s why you had your arms around me.

Johnny, you turned into a little more that okay, fine. So let her be pet at. Johnny, it was both of us. You tried to comfort me. I tried to turn that into a piss. You know I’m right.

Oh, hi. Hey. Oh God. I just heard about Dr. Evans. I’m so sorry. Thank you. If you’re looking for Chanel, she’s not here right now. It doesn’t matter. What do you mean it doesn’t matter? Oh, you can’t be alone right now. You don’t look okay. I’m not okay. I’m the farthest thing from, okay, right now. Let’s get you home.

How’d you find me? Buddy? Ran into Alley at the nurses station. Ah,

we were just, uh, you’re sitting over there looking at some family photos. Oh, that’s. That’s what the projector was for.

She wanted me to take her home. I just kind of thought this was a, a compromise, just trying to make her happy.

You did,

and I know that she’s up there right now looking down on me wanting to need to be strong. She wants me to know that I’m gonna get past this. That would be her. But she’s wrong. I am. Cause I’ve never past this.

That’s it. That’s right. Your best friend,

Oh, thank God. We all thought you died in that terrible car accident. And here you are. You’re alive and you’re well.

God so much.

Oh my God, Eric, I’m so sorry. I, I know what it feels like to lose a mother. Yeah. Well, this didn’t have to happen. Did the hospital screw up on her care? Was it the doctor? Because if so, you consider them into oblivion? What? No, it wasn’t the doctors. They did everything They. It’s the virus. She’s too strong and they couldn’t find the cure to fix it.

Okay, so you came over here to tell me she died and shouldn’t you be with your family right now? No, the family is the last thing I wanna be around right now. Are you sure you don’t wanna be with somebody you care about? I said I care about you. I mean someone you love. And we kind of agreed that that’s not what we are doing.

That’s not, I’m not asking for a shoulder to cry. Hey, what do you want?


So after the London cops said they didn’t wanna press charges, I thought Chanel and I had made short work of that Sloan Peterson. Well, I thought so too. What? Well, that little witch, she’s suing us both for wrongful death. She’s made up her mind to ruin on us one way or another. So it’s a civil suit. Right.

And the lawyer I’ve been talking to, he says that, uh, that means that that burned of proof thing is lower than ever. She could take me to the cleaner. Chanel could lose the bakery. Oh, that’s awful. Ooh, you’re telling. But I don’t see how a publicist could help you. What I need is someone on the inside, I want to know Sloan’s strategy and you want me to be that person?

Well, actually I was thinking of your, your, your boyfriend, Alex. What, what’s the problem? Well, he, he saved us once. I mean, uh, remember, remember how he got fat evidence that Sloan head on your mouth? Unfortunately, yes. Huh. Well, we need him again. Tell him to suit up or you gonna strip down whatever it takes.

Oh, he’s gonna get back in the ballgame As much as I’d like to help you, I, I can’t do that. Well, what, you’re not having an attack of ethics, are you? That’s not the problem. Well, I’m done to what it is. I’ll fix it. You can’t. Alex and I split up. Thank you again for taking such good care of Henry Night.

Hey, if you don’t wanna be alone, I can stick around. I don’t know what I want. I don’t even know where I was going when I ended up in the square. Why isn’t Chanel. Bakery’s closed. I don’t know where she is. Maybe with Johnny. Wait, what? Do you want a beer? I feel like beer sounds really good right now. Sure.


You want to sit down and drink that maybe? Sure.

I cannot believe that your grandmother’s really gone, that woman. She was like an institution or something, just always helping people. Yeah, she helped me. That’s for sure. Yeah, she was so strong. I really thought she was gonna make it through this.

What, what may maybe, maybe you shouldn’t chug that. The last thing you need right now is a hangover. What I need is my grandma. I’m gonna call Chanel, uh, Uhuh. Please don’t. Ali, is there something going on with you two? It’s what’s going on with her and Johnny. It scares me.

Okay. Uh, you know, I’m gonna go find Allie and talk some sense into it. No, no, no. Talking to Allie is my job. Butter vent to me, all should be should be calmed down by the time you. No, you are both grieving over your grandmother. You’re too raw if you try to talk to her now. It’s only gonna make things worse.

It has to be me. It’s it’s your call, I guess. Yeah. And I wanna give her a little more time.

Have you, uh, have you thought about what I said? You said a lot of things about wanting to kiss you

with Susan. Are you saying that, that you’re really dead? The car exploded. I went up in a big old fire boom. . Yeah, I’m sure they just sch swed what was left in me under the Rs. Oh, no, no.

As as I there.

So if you’re dead and you’re. Here, and I’m here with you.

Does, does that mean that I’m,

oh, no. See, without that orchid that they couldn’t do a darn thing to bring you back to love. The same with Kate and Cal. What were they?

Susan? I asked you a question.

Am I pushing you into something you don’t want? Anything That’s a possibility. I must be losing my time.

I knew you weren’t yourself, you were just trying to be kind to me. I came on to you. I, I’m really sorry. That’s, I didn’t take it seriously because you had just finished telling me about Wendy and how great she is. Yeah, yeah. I think I just screwed that up too, how, uh, I ran into her before I came here.

She’s with Trip Johnson. Well, he’s back in town. Yeah. Kayla’s his stepmom, so he’s. He’s here with Steve. Anyway, I, uh, I picked a fight with him. Okay, well, how bad a fight he tried to punch me. I decked him. Uh, well, what was it about? Oh, about his lunatic mother, maybe Vital. She’s the one who caused the crash that killed Susan, my other grandma.

Needless to say, Wendy. Not impressed with my behavior and I I don’t blame her. You know, I, you’re mad at the world right now and you’re being great about it.

Look, I’m, I’m really sorry that I, uh, made a pass at you. I won’t do it again.

I got off the elevator and the first thing I saw was Johnny and Chanel and they had their arms around each other and they were about to kiss. Okay. Well, to me the important words here are about to what they didn’t actually kiss. Yeah. Only because I showed. If I had gotten there like 10 seconds later, he would’ve been all over.

So then what did you do? Oh, nothing. I didn’t have time to do anything because Sarah showed up and told me about my grandma. Chanel could have been just trying to comfort the guy because he was so broken up. No, Chanel and Johnny are crazy about each other. I mean, they were married. They probably still be married if it wasn’t for Johnny.

Getting possessed by the devil. Yeah. A demonic possession can definitely take its toll on a marriage. I mean, that’s the only reason Chanel and I actually got together. And then she took forever to choose between John and Jeremy. But she chose you and she’s sticking with you. Why? Why are you taking their side?

I’m not taking their side. I am on your side. And look what you saw today could be right or you could be dead wrong. And since you have enough problems going on in your life right now, maybe you should just try trusting them.

I am talking from experience here. What? Having problems with Stephanie. Stephanie’s having problems with me. Major ones. It’s my own damn fault,

Alex. And you are on the F. It’s over. He cheated. I wish it was that. I’ve handled that before. This was worse. Hmm. What’s worse than a man who cheats? My mother died and because of Alex, I wasn’t there. Well, you gonna have to tell me more. Chad Damira found out about mom and so he tried to call me and let me know.

But I was outta the room when the call came in and Alex was alone with my phone. So he looked at the caller, ID saw that it was from Chad. He’s jealous of Chad. So he turned off my phone and didn’t tell me. Ooh, oh boy. It was, it was the worst thing anyone’s ever done to me.

And I was starting to think that maybe Alex and I had a. But that’s over. Now he’s dead to me.

A wonder if or refuse is enjoying his triumph.

Can open man. He’s a monster. Should have been me, Abraham. No, he hated Roman Stephen. Me. What does he do? He goes after the women we. Because he knew it would hurt more.

The devil himself went after Doc twice and she survived that. But Orpheus got her. He was so strong. Straw right to the end


That incredible love that you had for each other. It isn’t gone. It will last forever. I know you’re right. It’s, it’s just that, hey, when, when, when it was just the two of us against the world, we could beat all the odds. So how do, how do I leave this place with, without her? How do I just turn my back on the bat?

How did you do it, buddy? How did, how did you go home to an empty bed without,

do you wanna tour the place? I want you to tell me where Kale is, and Kate is it? Kate made it through the Furley Gates

that Jebel broke every one of the team. And if you did, the Lord didn’t think of that then. I am very well aware of who Kate is and she’s been a good friend to me. And maybe she doesn’t live by everybody’s code, but under. She’s a good person. not good news. She’s definitely like you, Dr. Mar Evans for sure.

Or Dr. Kayla Johnson. Alright, tell me where Kayla is. You can do that, can’t you?


hey. Did that help or did it just make you feel more alone? Not so tied up in

I can.

I am sorry if you felt like I was pushing you away. It, I just got tense when you spoke about your mother. Makes sense. It, um, it brings up a lot of memories of my own mom. Loving her, losing her. She doesn’t exactly make a person wanna have sex. I’m gonna, I’m sorry if that made you feel like I was using you.

No, you needed me. That’s very different and I’m not really used to that. People needing me feeling needed. Well, maybe talking to you can help me understand how to get through it. I don’t really think I’m gonna help you mention that Arina, you don’t seem like the vengeful type. Well, yeah. Tell me how vengeance is working out for you.

Ugh. I hit a bump in the road. The courts in London did not cooperate. That’s, I’m not gonna give up. She now, Dupree and her mother are not gonna get away with what they took from me. There’s other ways to make them pay.

Ugh. I think I’ve given Allie enough time. I better go see how she’s doing. Hey, Chanel, Allie loves you. All right, she’s gonna come around. Thanks for trying to make me feel better. You know, she could, uh, she’d come walking through here at any minute and see us. I’ll risk it. You’re a special person, Johnny Damara.

And I am so sorry. You’re hurting.

So you saw that it was Chad calling. And you turned off Stephanie’s phone and she wasn’t able to be there when Aunt Kayla died.

Go ahead, say what you’re thinking, but I am a selfish idiot who’s getting exactly what he deserves. All right. That might be a little bit dramatic. How do you figure if it had been Uncle Steve or anyone else from the family calling, what would you have done? I would’ve told Stephanie to pick up the phone.

Yeah, exactly right. So you saw that it was Chad calling. , honestly, you know, he’s been kind of a problem. He probably thought he was just butting in again. Exactly right. Okay, so look, you, you misjudged the situation. You messed up. If I was Stephanie, I’d be pissed. But we work through it. Why? Because you would never deliberately keep Stephanie from being at her dying mother’s bedside.

You made a stupid mistake, but I think that means that you deserve to be forgiven.

Ought to be hung up by his thumbs and I, I can’t believe you don’t even know your mama was dying. So you don’t think I’m overreacting? I do not. First of all, your phone is none of his business, but more importantly, he kept you from seeing your mama for the last time. Oh, let me tell you, if a man did me that way, he be singing soprano for the rest of his natural life.

Thank you for the back. You got it. Sometimes I have moments where I think maybe I was too angry. Hopefully you don’t need a man sneaking around trying to arrange your life the way he wants. You ha. You have so much to offer. Thank you for saying that. But I, I still can’t get him to help you with Sloan. I hope you can find another.

Get her out of your life. I am not letting you off the hook yet. Missy. Mm-hmm. . Now you have come through for me in the past and I have faith that you, you can do it again. Cases like this are one in the court of public opinion. That’s your area of expertise Now, branch head on board, that boy smart. Yeah. He is not hard to look at either.

Alex will probably just think you’re doing it to get to. Alex can think whatever he wants. I couldn’t care less what? This is a very big place. I mean, it makes New York City look like an you want, I’m asking you to try. Hi. Okay. All

here we are here to Jay. All right, we’ve got Andrew, Jack, lady Bird. Now we are already past the case. Well uh, try her maiden name, which day. Brady. Oh, I should, she’s still with romance. Kimberly and Bo? Yes. Oh, oh, here we are. Bogar, Aurelius Brady here. Yep. Except there’s Esri’s, Neer’s name and I really don’t know what that means.

And we’re looking for Kayla. She’s head.

I’ll start thinking about how to spend this and then I’ll give you a call. Mm-hmm. . Oh no. Take some time. Take some time to grieve, but get ready for War ii. . Oh, I wish I could do this myself, but I’m too much a part of it. Oh, Sloane made my baby a target and I went to DEF com one. Mm-hmm. . Oh, my mom would’ve done the same thing if anybody came from one of us.

They’d have to go through her first.

You and I are gonna open a bottle of wine one night, step dollar, and then you going to tell me all about her, but do yourself a favor. Don’t focus on not getting to say goodbye. You’ll never escape the pain. You’re not pretty sure you and your mother were past needing words and she died knowing how much you loved her.

Just, just think. Just remember all the good times and smile when you’re thinking of them, and she’ll never be far away.

You actually managed to give me some hope. Maybe Stephanie comes around. Here’s to you the only one so far to have my back.

Hey Alex, what are you doing here? I ran into him when you heard about grandma. Yeah, it was nice enough to offer me a shoulder to cry on, you know, like you did

No corner.

Know you’ve got your children. Yeah. Your grandchildren. They need you. They need you, buddy. They, that’s, that’s what will make you go on. You can do it, buddy. You can do it. You just came reminding me of that. Okay,

John, look, you know, why don’t you come home with me? I mean, just, just stay with Paulina and me for no buddy. You know what? That’s just gonna post Paul. Inevitable. I need to be in a place where I can feel Doc’s presence, and that is our home. I need to climb into our bed. I need to smell her perfume on her pillow.

I need to look at her picture on my night. And just fall under those eyes again. I know it’s gonna be hard as hell partner, but that is what I need right now.

I don’t know why Taylor’s not on the list. Well, she’s new. Her paperwork hasn’t come through yet. I mean, you wouldn’t believe how long I had to wait to see the king.

You had a meeting with God No better. Oh, I gotta talk to El Eric Presley, don’t you? I mean, I got to tell him how much I love his singing and we got to take a selfie together. I mean, I was gonna right there, but you know what? Dead. Well, you know what? She’s around here sometimes. She is. She is. You know what?

I’m here to, I’m here to help you make that transition over to the other.

You know, one of the things that I learned during my years as a priest is that’s a hunger for revenge isn’t a natural instinct. It’s more of an obsession. Is there anything that makes it go away?

I have one.

If I could just think of some of those strategies.

Hey, Steph, it’s me, aka the jackass. Look, I know I don’t have the right to ask you for anything, but could you maybe just give me a chance to make this up to you? I’m talking groveling here. You and I had something so great going and I don’t want to give up on that. That’s all I wanted to say.

Well, I think I’m gonna take off, no, that Chan knows back. No, no, don’t do that. Hey, you know what? Maybe we could have another threesome because I know first Chanel life would just means getting a little bit boring. That is not true. And don’t put Alex in the middle of this. You know, I’m sorry I wasn’t really in the mood anyways.

It’s been a pretty long and awful day for me, so I’m gonna try and get some. Henry’s room.

How’s John doing? Well, it’s going to be in a bad place for a very long time. Marna was his life.

Everyone who dies, they get God here like a guardian. And look at me. They want me for yours.

What is it that, the transition you’re talking about? Well, it’s hard for folks to, uh, accept that they’re really gone and to let go of their loved. I myself had a devil of a time. I accept that my Elvis Junior, I, I was never gonna see him again, and I know that it’s not gonna be easy for you to let go of the love of your life, Mr.

John kept, kept telling me I was going to pull through. He must be in so much pain. He is. He’s crushed, but he is his kids and the rest, family and friends, my children. Dear God, see, it’s just like you. I what? 20 You thought about yourself, oh, three seconds, and then you worried about child black and your kids, but that is why you made it.

Now I see paperwork, pay for work, and you need to get some rest. You’ve been through enough for one day. I can’t rest. I’ve got so many questions. Yes, the answers are gonna all be revealed. Yes,

Thank you. Welcome up. Tail. Here you go. And now I’m gonna have you walk right through and we’re gonna have a fresh start after you get some rest. Okay, let’s scoot. Scoot, scoot, scoot, scoot, scoop. There we go.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Boy that, uh, that slideshow I made for my grandparents kinda got to me. I can imagine. It was really something. Yeah, just, I don’t know, seeing all those picture. How long they were together, all the stuff they got through. It’s like the days of their lives were written by Emily Bronte, directed by Hitchcock.

Well, I wouldn’t have put it that way, but I think I know what you mean. Yeah, they were, they were together a long time before I was even born, but ever since I can remember they were. Solid. You know, even after everything they went through and they went through a lot, like I said, good and bad. There was never any doubt between either of them that they were with the person that they were meant to be with.

I used to, uh, think about. When I was watching movies, uh, Ingrid Bergman and Bogart standing in the fog at that tiny airport, Gregory Peck on the back of Audrey Hepburn’s, Vespa, even Carrie Grant shoving Katherine Hepburn back into that niche and there was, there’s this connect. That was always there no matter what was, uh, going on around him.

Now I know why you love those movies so much.

You know, I, I always thought that, um, Know that I’d, that I’d find someone that, uh, the first time I fell in love would be the last,

and now it’s the, it’s the end, honey.

Dear Lauren, I know we’re asking for a miracle,

and if it’s your wealth, please save her. I know it might be time for her to be with you in heaven, but we need her here. You my prayer.

I was just gonna drink you,

Dr. Horton. Why? Why was Dr. Evans moved? Why? I’m standing right next to her bed and it’s empty.

Have had a lifetime. Wonderful memories have.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

What the hell is going on here?

So I, I just talked to the nurses and they said we could visit Marlene up, but only two at a phone. Okay. Um, you two go. Okay, we, we’ll come back and get you. Thank.

So how you doing?

Not great. I’m sorry.

I asked you a question, what the hell is going on here, Johnny? He was just really upset about your grandmother, and is she? No. No, she’s, she’s not dead. She’s just, uh, she’s up on the roof. Grandpa John.

Hold on. I’m gonna get some help.

Do you want me to pray with. No thanks. We were praying when you came in, or at least um, aunt Bellon, uncle Eric, where I can’t , I can’t really pray. Hmm. I mean, I think God knows how you feel between law firm.

You know, I, I’ve been thinking about, um, when we. When you and I like first

I was scared of how I felt about you. I didn’t know how you felt about me, didn’t know how I felt about me.

How weird is it that the only person I could talk to honestly about that was my grandmother? And she told me to fight for you.

Thank God she did. Although it wasn’t much of a fight. It’s not like I was playing hard to get,

sorry. It’s work. You should answer it. No, no, no, I’m not with. Your grandma wouldn’t want you to put your entire life on home.

This is Well, you’re kidding.

Hey. Hey. Did you get to see your mom? Yeah, I. How did it go? It was a nightmare. So Johnny found all these pictures of your grandparents and he put ’em together in a slideshow and then we set it up on the roof. I think to avoid roofs. What just sounds really sweet? That’s what grandma wanted. She didn’t want, uh, she didn’t want to die in a hospital, but.

No, no, no, no. It’s all right. It’s all right. I need to know who authorized the move and why I wasn’t consulted. Stat. Your mother’s been moved and I don’t know why. Oh my God. Please just try not to worry. If there was a change in her condition, I would’ve been told I’m the treating physician. Oh, God, snake.

Could this. You don’t know where she is, John, her, stop, get some help right now. Please help her. Right. Help.

Right. Yeah. No, I, I understand. Okay. Okay. Yeah, I’ll, I’ll, I’ll talk to you later. That sounded like good news. Um, the projects I’ve been working on got the green light. Oh my God. That, that’s wonderful.

It’s not, it’s not wonderful. Well, they want me on set. Yeah, the, that’s in New Zealand and they want me to go now.

I I, I’m gonna call my agent and tell him, tell him I can’t. Okay. Look, I know it’s, I know the timing sucks, but I mean, like I just said, your grandma wouldn’t want you to pass this off. Listen, I, I, I’m gonna stay here and Salem until I figure out what’s going on with her. Huh? Okay. Just, I understand. Call your agent, you know, tell him about your grandma, but just don’t say you’re not going.

This isn’t just about my, my grandma. I, I can’t leave because of us.

Okay. Drink this and tell me what happened. Thank you.

Oh, what? It’s Chris Tea. It’s supposed to be calming. My mother used to give it to me when I was upset. You look pretty upset right now.

So the visit, what happened? Well, uh, when I said that it was a nightmare, I wasn’t just talking about myself. Uh, my mom is hallucinating normal time. I’m. It must have been rough. She didn’t recognize me. She thought I was my dead brother. Charlie,

I, uh, gave Rafe a statement, so if he can arrest Kristen for what she did to grandma, I know. Do you want a medal or something? Not no, I I only told you cause I thought she didn’t know. Well, I did. Sorry if I didn’t praise you enough for standing up to the Damaris. Very brave of you, Ellie. Johnny is upset about your grandmother just like you are.

I really don’t need you to explain my brother to me. Also, this is not about my grandmother. This is about what I just walked in on. It’s not supposed to mean that it’s a little hard to believe that your grief stricken when I just saw you coming onto my girl.

You took her to the roof. She didn’t wanna be in this room anymore. Kids, she just wanted to be home and I couldn’t take away from the hospital. So we went up on the roof just to be under the stars. Oh. I’m thinking it’s maybe it was a little bit too much. No, no. You did the right thing. I had to do something.

She wanted to go home. She wanted to be in her own bed.


Can’t. I can’t, I can’t.

To be with.

Do you want me to tell the rest of the family?

I’m so sorry.

Your mom thought you were your dead. Half Brother Charlie, we didn’t grow up together. I, I didn’t even meet him until recently. He did some very, very bad things.

Yeah, I have a brother like that. No, no. Lee hasn’t done anything close to what Charlie did. No. Charlie was a, uh, he was a lost soul. I think. I don’t, I don’t know. Maybe I’m just. It makes sense out of it all, but I think that he had so much pain on the inside that he just had to inflict that on. Others. What did he do?

I didn’t know where to start. Uh, he hurt a lot of people. Worst of all though, is what he did to Allie.

All, we’re all really upset, okay? We’re not thinking straight. I know what I saw, what you saw, what you saw was me about to fall apart and Chanel trying to comfort me. Craig, I don’t need your twist on how things happened because according to you, you never do anything wrong. But what about you? You’re gonna lie to me instead of telling me the truth.


Grandma is.


Maybe you can talk some sense because none of this makes any sense to me.

You know, I don’t, I dunno if you realize, but like you alive, people have talked to me about things that are happening in their lives

and listen.

You were the one person that I could count on to listen to me.

No, you always know my faith is strong.

Then when life was hard, my faith sustained me

till now.

See, I asked God spare her life.

Stop listening.

I never needed someone to talk to more right than right now.

Okay, I think I’m gonna need you to explain this. Okay. Let’s just say that I, I, that my grandmother gets better, and, and then I, I go, we we’re gonna be apart for. At least six months, son. It’s a 16 hour flight one way. We’re never gonna have time to to, to go and see each other. I know. But this, this movie, you’ve put so much time and effort into it.

I know. And more than that, if you give this up, I, I might not get another chance that you’re You’re right. You’re right. And I, I know, even though we got past that fight we had on Christmas, I feel like it, it, it never would’ve happened. Or may, maybe it would’ve happened, but it wouldn’t have been so vicious and so sad.

I know we’ve been, we’ve had our ups and downs, but that, that felt different. I mean, that, that didn’t feel like us and that’s, that scared me. Well, I think what scared you was that I had befriend Leo Stark again, which of course you were right and I was wrong. Okay. I thought I should give him another chance.

I thought he could change and he did into an assistant kidnapper.

Look. Well, you said that you were scared because it didn’t feel like us anymore. Okay. But this, this movie is a dream come true. And if you let me hold you. Then you won’t be you anymore,

and then we could never be us.

Thing is that Charlie had this kind of gift and he could get outta people’s skin, make them,

I can’t really put it in towards. All I know is that he made my mom feel like all the things he did were her fault. That she loved me and didn’t love him, and that’s why he turned out like he did. And so as soon as she saw me, the, the guilt, he just made her think I was Charlie. That’s awful. What was really awful is that she started seeing Charlie after her first breakdown.

It was like this little devil on her shoulder, and I had hoped that when she started taking her meds, that the hallucinations would go away. But right when I walked in the door, she immediately started screaming, blaming me for all of the horrible things she had done. Thank you for Charlie. Right, right.

I, I tried to get through to her. I tried, I tried to make her see that it was me, but I couldn’t, and I had to and watch them, restrain her, sedate her, and then I had to watch them drag her away after she begged me to.

She didn’t know it was you. Trip, whatever part of her did.

My mom said that she hates me and, and maybe she hates me because I left her. In that place, uh, with Charlie alone in a nightmare that she may never wake up from.

So sorry. . God. Oh.

Are you okay? No.

I love you too.

So does everybody,

and not, not just love mommy. They respect you and admire you.

I’ve been so proud to be your daughter.

I, I just keep thinking about when we were in that coma and I had to fight everyone to honor your wishes, you know, to not keep you hooked up, to have been leader.

And then you let me off the hook. At least we thought you did. You woke up, but it wasn’t really you. It was Hattie and

God, I wish that this was handy right now. I just wish someone was gonna walk through that door and tell me. It’s not Dr. Marlene Evans, my mom,

do you remember when I was little on, we used to play hide and go seek . God, you were the best of that.

I would close my eyes and count to 10 and say, ready or not, here I come and, and then I couldn’t find you.

And then, so eventually I would just give up and, and I would just feel really. Scared that you were really gone. I was never gonna find you.

And then you’d come out and God, I would say, where were you hiding? And you would never tell. You said it was your super secret hiding. Please

God, why am I thinking about all this? I mean, I’m a grown woman and I just.

I just feel like that scary little girl.

I’m afraid I’m never gonna find you,

God, which is just a game I wish. But I could just close my eyes and count to 10 and just pray that this time I’m gonna find you.

You can’t lose her. I have to find her.


Just thank you. I know how lucky I hate them.

Okay, I’m gonna let you say goodbye. I’ll be right outside though. If you need me, I’ll need you. We’re all gonna need each other right now.


Johnny, how’s your grandmother? She, uh, she just died. My god. So sorry. I’m sorry too. No, you just, You save. You’re sorrys Paolo. Okay. I just lost my grandma. The one I had left like Trip lost his stepmother. I know what you’re going through. Okay. Orpheus, that bastard killed Kayla too. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Orpheus killed my grandmother.

He killed Kayla. He killed Cape, but sure, lunatic mother killed my other grandma, Susan. I can’t defend what she did, but she’s mentally ill . That’s convenient, isn’t it? You know, she made me believe she was a good person. She was just playing the victim card to get what she wanted, and now that it’s time for her to pay for what she’s done, all of a suddenly, she’s normal bass.

Watch it. Watch it. Your mother is a homicidal lunatic bitch, Johnny. He started it.

How’s Grandpa John Kate’s with her right now saying goodbye now. I’ve never seen anybody love anyone as much as you loved her. I know. Um, do you want me to call your mom? Yeah. Could you? Yeah, I just, I know she, she’s gonna try and be strong for me. I don’t want that for her right now. Okay. Okay. For your love.

You should go. No, Allie, I really need to go find Will, so I’ll just see you later.

Hi. Hi. I, I don’t think I can talk about this right.

Not until we know how your grandma stole Sonny. Just being away from you for that long. Also, it like it. I, Hey, you said you couldn’t talk about this right now. So let’s wait. This isn’t the.

I just left a message for Sammy to call.

Why don’t we go to the chapel and say one more prayer,


Oh, hello, Dr. Evans. My name is John Black

Doc. This is wrong on so many levels. You’re those strong one. You’re the one that could go on me, not so sure about.

You remember when we first met? Yeah, I know that was a lifetime ago. I actually, I literally didn’t even know who I was. Yeah, I thought, you know, I was some good at this, this, this tough guy. You know, I thought I was, oh hell, I don’t know. I don’t know what I thought. But you,

you knew when you saw right through me, you,

you saw the man. Not only the man that I was, but the man that I could be. Again,

doc, when I first kissed you, it changed everything cuz that was the first time that I knew who I was. See, I, I was the guy that I’d fallen in love with, Dr. Evan.

I trusted you and depended on you,

and I always love you, Dr. Evans.

From that first.

Did you everything. It went in this way for us,

Did you ever dream love? What day?

I wish that dream could last forever.

Interview with Mike Manning

TV Interview!

Mike Manning of "The Way Out"

Interview with Mike Manning of the film “The Way Out” by Thane 1/16/23

It was great to catch up with Mike Manning about a new thriller he appears in. His TV credits include “This Is Us” and “Days Of Our Lives“. If you like horror/thriller movies, then he’s worth a follow.



"The Way Out" movie key art



From writer/director Barry Jay, and starring Jonny Beauchamp (“Penny Dreadful”), Emmy winner Mike Manning (“Teen Wolf”, “This is Us”), Ashleigh Murray (“Riverdale”), and Sherri Shepherd (“Life is Perfect”), an unnerving and riveting thriller from Terror Films hitting digital February 10, 2023.

Alex is an aspiring singer/songwriter, a drug addict who’s been damaged from childhood abuse. After the death of his father and inheriting the family home, he takes in a roommate, a fighter, who takes Alex under his wing, teaching him how to fight back and stand up to abusers. But soon this leads Alex down a dark path that threatens his sobriety and his life.

“I disagree”, says Barry Jay (Killer Therapy, The Chosen). “Absence doesn’t always make the heart grow fonder. Sometimes it gives you the time and distance to gain the clarity to see how badly you were mistreated and the courage to finally do something about it. That was me – I moved out of an abusive household when I was 20 years old. I had been abused until after I was a senior in high school. Severely underweight, shut down, feared everyone and everything and with good reason. Sobriety was a gift that helped me heal through all of that, a day at a time and that is the inspiration for THE WAY OUT.

My hope is to send a message to the abuser and the abused. To the abuser, I hope to show the ripple effect of their heinous actions, and how it can boomerang back to them, rightfully destroying their lives. To the abused, I hope to show there is hope, hope for better days, ability to find the self-esteem and strength to create boundaries, how forgiveness can be the thing that helps you finally drop the rock so you can create a better new and healthy life.”

THE WAY OUT is on digital February 10, 2023 worldwide from Terror Films.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, you didn’t come down for dinner? I thought you’d stepped out. I was here, but I was dealing with a para Uninvasive guests. Anyone I know, commissioner Hernandez and Detective Hunt. They were here before. Yeah. Looking for Kristen. Did they tell you the good news? They have an arrest warrant for your sister, but they can’t find her?

They were hoping I could help them out with that. And could you? No. But while they were here, Reeve got a call from Brady. The police should be closing in on Kristin, as we speak. You understand these rights does. I read them to you. This is ridiculous. I didn’t murder anyone, but you did withhold a life-saving treatment from two women who are now dead and Marlena is hanging by a threat.

I don’t know anything about a life-saving treatment. Kristin, you might as well give up the act because they know the truth. Oh God. What are you talking about? We have a recording of your confession. . Uhuh. You’re bluffing. Yeah. Is this gonna mark? Well, we can talk about all this down at the station. Let’s go take her.

Who off of me? What is this? A police state? Kristin, this is just you getting, what do you deserve?

Yeah, I, I’m hoping Brave has found Kristen by now, but I, I haven’t heard anything from him yet. Don’t, don’t, don’t thank me Uncle Steve. Look, it, it’s, it’s killing me that none of this is gonna bring Aunt Kayla back. You too. Yeah. I’ll, uh, I’ll, I’ll call you if I find out anything more,

Johnny? Hey. Hey. How’s your grandma? Uh, it was, uh, I was just about to check on her. Did you come to see Ellie? Yeah. I figured she could have used the moral support. It’s really bad, isn’t it? It’s really bad.

I can’t take you home, doc. Not in your condition. I don’t. I don’t wanna die. I’m not here. No, you, you don’t get enough. I don’t wanna talk like that. Ok. Don’t do that. We both, no, they’ve done everything they can. Nothing is working.

I just wanna be in my own bed.

The doctors are buying you time until Steve and the ISA can find that damn market. Good.

There’s no time. Now we both know that. Please, please, please get me outta here.

Like sands, through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

And I had Kristen cornered with this thing. If you would’ve stopped me, then she could have been knocked out on the floor before Rafe even got here. You’re serious. There are two dead women because of your sister, and Marlena might be next. So yeah, I’m. Kristen refused to admit to that she made a deal with Brady the first time got sick.

What’s so the deal? Well, she forced Brady to dump me and get back together with her, or else she was gonna let Marlena and Kate and Kayla all die. So Brady had no choice but to accept that deal, but then they all got sick again, and now she’s saying she has no idea where that damn orchid is. I wondered how she managed that reconciliation.

She’s a monster. That’s. She’s using her own child as a weapon to make Brady stay with her. All she does is cause misery and she doesn’t take any responsibility for any of it. Oh, that’s about to change. Why? What happened? Breaking news. Kristen Damer taken into police custody.

So Ray is gonna a restaurant, Kristen, as soon as he can track her down. And he wants you to testify against her. Yeah. Yeah. To, uh, verify the conversation she and I had when she confessed to everything. Oh, that was pretty slick of your Uncle Steve to put a bug in your place, but it kind of put you in a tough position.

No, no it doesn’t. Look, Kristin needs to be stopped. Her withholding of that cure is what led to Kate and Aunt Kayla’s death. And, and I’m. I am scared to death. My grandma might be next.

Johnny, you’ve been through this before.

Had enough time for me to take her back to Venice.

I’m not asking for Venice. I’m asking for a cross town. Honey, there wasn’t anything I could do for the zb.

Well, My odds aren’t much better than than hers were. So please, please, please,

perhaps you’ll settle for a compromise.

Molly, I made sure. What were you thinking?

I should go fine, Allie, right? Um, yeah. Last I knew she was in the chapel. Oh, it’s from her. She decided to leave the hospital. After all, she didn’t want the babysitter to put Henry to bed, but it’s nice to hug him right now. Well, uh, I guess I’ll head back. Uh, grandpa, is it grandma? No, no, no, no. She’s, uh, she’s the same.

Look, if you got a minute, I could really use your help. So I will keep you up to speed on Kristin if you keep me up to speed on Marlene. Okay. Thank you Bell and. , listen, if her condition changes at all, will you let me know anything at all? Okay. Love me.

Wheres mom? Hey, pumpkin. Um, We have to talk. Okay. Do you wanna, you wanna have a seat? Chad? Am I in trouble? No. No, you’re not in trouble, but mommy is okay. Mommy’s in a little bit of trouble. You see? She was gonna take you on a trip and she, she didn’t even ask me, and it’s not, that’s not good. Um, she’s done some bad things.

Some seriously bad things. And, and that’s, that’s why she couldn’t move. Well, she had to move outta the house, remember? Right. And, um, now it seems that she, she may have to go back to prison for a little while.

I know. Come here, come here, come here. It’s not your fault. Come here. It’s not your fault. It’s. Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marlaina or the other women. I swear to you.

Look, I will admit I hid the orchid knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum, but I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead.

Where’d you get that? I got it. That’s all you need to know. Well, I hate to tell you that that’s not me on that tape. Someone who sounds like me or some sort of deep fake, it won’t hold up as evidence. Yeah, nice try. Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marna or the other. I swear to you.

Look, I will admit I hid the orchid knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum, but I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead. Yeah, maybe not, but that’s what happened.

Damara agreed to testify that this conversation took place between the two of you. I demand to call my lawyer.

Let me see that. Describe me. A mugshot of her or something. I still don’t understand. What possessed you to let Kris move back in here and what can I say? She’s, she’s family. Hmm.

How about a game with Jess? I don’t wanna neglect my guest. No, it’s okay. I’m actually ready to go home. You sure? Yes. It’s been quiet a day and I’m pretty tired. You fellas, enjoy your game. I know my way out. Something tells me that I’m going to sleep so much better.

Something tells me she and Kristen don’t get along. You do know that I used to be a chess champion, right? Yes. You’ve told me quite frequently. . Well just want her to be up front.

EJ Dam. It’s your sister. I hear you’ve managed to get into a bit of trouble. Yeah. Now I need you to get me out of it How? How you come down to the police station and you bring your fancy law degree. I’m in the middle of something. Don’t jerk me around. Dj. You get your ass down here and you make this all go away.

Otherwise, my next call is to. And I am sure he would love to hear how his own brother sold him out for control of Tamara Enterprises.

Hey, where did you go? It’s going. A few arrangements. I know. Luckily I ran into a guy that’s gonna set everything up for me so I can stay right here with you.

The compromise, what is it? Come on, God. Will you love me? Surprise you for just one? Yeah. Do I get a hint? Okay. I’ll give you this much.

You’re about to go. On the adventure of a lifetime.

What is that thing? Uh, this thing is a Bluetooth projector.

I wanted to be nice for your grandma. Those good to be useful. Yeah. I still can’t believe you talked that coffee shop into giving you their window display . Oh, they were about to close anyway, and I told the counter guy who it was for four. Turns out your grandma’s a regular customer. Thanks. I really appreciate it.

Yeah, it, uh, takes my mind off my own problems Soon. I thought you said your English lawyer didn’t think Scotland Yard was gonna press charges. Well, that hasn’t stopped Sloan Peterson from suing Mama and Me and Civil Court

Chanel. I’m so sorry. I, I, I wish I would’ve known that. It’s okay. There’s nothing you can do. Yeah, but I still want to know what’s going on in your life. Just cuz we’re not married anymore doesn’t, I mean, I don’t still care about you, but what about Wendy? Is she okay with us being friends? Why would you ask about her?

Johnny, come on. You two are kind of the thing now. Right.

I don’t want mommy go back to prison. I know, baby. I’m sorry. But you look, we can, we can visit her. You’ll be able to see her. It won’t be the same. We won’t get to do stuff together. She won’t get to read to me at night. She does all the voices and she’s funny. I know, I know. She’s, I know she’s funny sweetie, but, and I’ve heard you laughing together and that’s.

You two are supposed to get married, but you wouldn’t and now mommy’s gone. Honey, we will get through it together, okay? You and me. We did before. We’ll be okay. I don’t want you, I want my mommy.

Leave me alone.

There you go. Turkey on rye with lettuce and mayo and cranberry. You remember the cranberry sauce kind of hard. Forget cranberry. What do I owe you? . Oh me. No, this is on me for a job well done. Well, if I would’ve known that I would’ve ordered dessert and apple pie. Carolyn Brady’s secret recipe. Okay. Okay.

Now I feel guilty. I mean, it was Steve Johnson that got Kristen on tape. No, no, no. You were the one who suggested that Johnny testified the tape is accurate. I mean, it’s, it’s a shot in the dark. I’m just hoping it’s enough to get the judge to. Yeah, well hopefully the DA can say that Steve didn’t get a warrant because he was so worried about his wife.

From what I hear, the Deras are experts at Eluting Justice, you heard. Right, and I will bet Kristen’s in there right now talking to EJ about how to do exactly that.

How soon can you get. I’d love to help you, Kristen, but the c e O of Dara Enterprises can’t get involved in a murder investigation. It’s just not a good look for the company. Don’t pull this crap with me, ej. Now you get me out of here tonight, or I will blow you out of the water. My decision is final. Fine.

Then I am giving s Stephan a call. Oh, there’s no need to.

S Stephan is right here with me and you are on speakerphone. Our sister has something she would like to tell you.

I hope we have another extension port. We do, we do.

You never answered my question. Uh, what? You and Wendy. Oh. Um, yeah. There’s really not much to say. I mean, technically we’re not even dating so. Oh, I, I, I guess I got the wrong idea because you two are always together. Ugh. We wanted people to think we were a couple. It was like our cover for what? Uber investigating.

Wendy’s brother le in. He’s uh, my dad’s right hand man at Damara. And what did you think he was? . Well, Lee was engaged to Gabby Hernandez, and we thought he might be doing something shady to keep Gabby from getting back with her husband. Who th she thought was dead? Yeah. My, uh, my Uncle Stephan. Oh, and, and it all came out at the wedding, right?

About the brainwashing? Yes. Oh.

Wendy’s brother. Sure. Sounds like a creep. Yeah, he is. That’s what I think. Anyway.

So, uh, well, now that your uncle and Gabby know the truth and the caper is over, where does that leave you and Wendy? Uh, I guess we, I dunno, we, we decided we didn’t want to. Seeing each other. I really like her. Oh, that’s great. I’m really happy for you.

Yeah. Yeah. We probably would’ve, uh, gone on our first date by now if it wasn’t for grandma getting sick. Hey, be careful on that chair, by the way. It’s not exactly stable. Woo.

You okay?


Krista’s in custody is all thanks to you Steve. We’re gonna make sure she pays for what she. Yeah, don’t worry. Just try to get some rest. Okay.

You okay? Yeah. It’s just, and Steve, he just, he sounds like a light just went out inside of.

Yo, you and Kayla fell in love when they were really young. I don’t know if he’s ever gonna recover from losing her, and it didn’t have to happen. I mean, how could one woman cause so much pain and suffering for so many people? And how does she live with herself?

Happy to see you, but what brings you by. Well, I heard that Kristen was just arrested. I was driving home and I I couldn’t stop thinking about you and Rachel. How are you doing? It’s been a day. Came home to find, uh, Kristen, preparing herself to take Rachel away with her. What? Thank God you stopped her.

Yeah, it was really close too. . Well, did Kristen know she was being arrested? Is that why she was running? No. She realized that she didn’t have any more leverage over me and that I would probably try to prevent her from seeing Rachel. She was very surprised to see Jayden and Rafe showing up here. Oh my goodness.

Was Rachel here when they took her? She was in, she was in the bedroom.

I don’t know how to, how do you, how do you tell your little girl that your mother has done such terrible things that she may be in prison for the rest of her life? How do you say that to your little girl? I dunno, but I’m sure you handled it well. I’ll enough. I can’t believe this is happening to my little girl, pj, this is ridiculous.

Take me off the speaker this instant. But you were so eager to tell S Stephan everything. This is your chance. Tell me what, I don’t know what you’re doing, ej, but it’s not, oh, I’ve grown tired of your games, darling. You wanted Stefan to know the truth. Okay. Why don’t you two quit screwing around and tell me what the hell’s going on?

It’s nothing. EJ is just acting like a child as usual. Fine. I’ll do it myself. What our wants to tell you is that I knew that Lee had RO brainwash you and outta self-interest. I’ve decided to keep that to myself.

You are an idiot, ej, and aren’t you fortunate that I won’t be serving as your attorney? And since you have to find someone else so quickly, why don’t we, don’t you dare hang up on me.

You knew he had me brainwashed only after the fact. Kristen was in on it from the very beginning. And you knew about it for months? Yes.

How’d you find out after you and I managed to pull off our coup? The board meeting, Lee took me to the site and told me everything. I was appalled, of course, but then Lee pointed out that if I decided to set you straight, you might remember your love for Gabby inside with her against me. Mm. So this was a business deal.

For me, yes. It was personal for Lee. And what did Kristen get out of it isn’t that obvious. You kept Chloe occupied and unavailable to Brady.

You knew what Lee did and you still made him your number two at Demira, and then you told me that way. Questioned my mental capacity, which was a lie of course,

but I had just assumed control of the company and I didn’t want that taken away from me.

I can’t believe it. If it makes you feel any better. Lee and Christian have been holding what I did over my head this entire time. But it is over now. I am glad, even if it means dealing with the consequences of my actions.

Okay. Yeah.

Everything ready to. Uh, one second.

Oh, that’s lovely. You too. Did an amazing job in such a short period of time. I won’t forgive it. Uh, this is for the projector. It’s all loaded. What do you do? You just drive around with all this equipment in your car, ? Uh, well, you know, you just, you never know when stuff like this might come in handy. Uh, I, I got this from the diner down the street.

Gus the Counterman, he says he’s praying for you. Bless his heart. Bless. Here’s two.

Anything for you, grandma. I love you. I love you too.

I know this isn’t the same as taking you honey,


Thought that if something might happen, I can get you downstairs in a hurry. Oh my love. Oh my darling.

I’m so sorry. You have to deal with all of this when Marlene is sick. Huh? See, it’s, it’s, it’s all been kind of a perfect storm. Hurricane. Kristen, did you know that when you left the hospital we almost lost Mar? almost lost her. I mean, she, she, it was, it was really touch and go and the doctors were able to, to bring her back.

How is she now? I don’t know how much longer she can hold enlo. All the doctors can do is treat the symptoms. They need a cure for her. Are you sure that Kristen isn’t lying about the orchid being stolen? I, I don’t. All I know is, is the orchid was not where she said it was supposed to be. That’s all I. Wow.

And I feel, you know, I feel powerless to do anything, and I feel a hell of a lot of guilt about what I was supposed to save Marlena’s life by playing Kristin’s game. That was the deal. I should’t trusted her. I mean, I, I should’ve, I should have done something more, anything more. Hey, and I didn’t, your your back was against the wall.

None of this is your fault. No, that’s what my father says, but I’m not, Because look what I mean. Look, look what happened. I hurt you. I fixed it. So, so Kristen could control my daughter, John Marla had been forced to live here without maniac. I mean, it was all for nothing. Do you understand? If my dad loses Marlena, I , he’s not gonna be able to go on.

And I honestly, I don’t know how I’m gonna be able to live with myself if that happens. I’m sorry.

You get away from my daddy.

She one.

She one.

Delicious it.

Would you like some more? No. No? Okay.

Oh, what do you have? No, I had Johnny download some family pictures to my cloud. I thought it might be a nice idea just to.

Reminisce a little.


I love that picture. No,

I love that one too.

You still laughing your eyes.

And yours,

John, how did this go so fast? I know. I just wanna do this all over again, doc. I know. I do, I do all over again.

Thank you again for, uh, helping me get things set up on the roof. Wouldn’t have made John’s deadline without you. That was so sweet. What John did I see where you get your romantic streak? Yeah. John and grandmother, their whole life’s been one big long, epic romance. Yeah. They, they had their breakups, but they never lasted.

You know, they, they always figured out that, We couldn’t live without each other. And now they might have to. Well, Dr. Evans, she seemed like she was hanging in there. Yeah. Yeah. That, that was for John’s benefit, you know, thanks to me. She, ah, she looked so frail and she was smiling, but yeah, I could see it in her eyes.

She knows what’s. Man. Man, you know, all my life, you know, as much as my parents would drive me crazy, I could always go to her.

God, I’m just so not ready to lose her.

Rachel, you will not talk to her that way. Okay? Chloe has done nothing wrong. Mommy said she added to move out because her, listen to me. Mommy says a lot of things that are not, You told my mommy, didn’t you? And that’s why the police came. Honey. The police came because mommy broke the law. Okay? I would never do anything to hurt you, Rachel.

You ruined everything. I hate you. Rachel. Rachel, that’s it. You need a timeout. I want you to go to your bedroom right now. I want you to cool off. And I will be in there in a minute. You seem mad. I’m not gonna be mad when we talk, sweetie. But you and I, we will get some things straight. I love you. Go.

So you hired an. Nope, I had a bit of a snag. We can get you a public defender, , some loser who went to a law school. He founded the back of a matchbook cover. No, thank you. We might wanna rethink that because I’m gonna want a statement from you before I book you and take you down to the holding cells. And while you’re at it, you might wanna tell us what Lian did as step in Damira.

Are you offering to cut me a deal if I roll on shit? It’s possible. Wow. I want murder charges off the table and total immunity.

Tell us what you know about Shannon and we’ll,

I remember when you first came to me, pitched me the idea of us joining forces to hold onto the company. And I thought to myself, finally, finally, I have myself an ally in this pit of vipers.

Finally, I have a sibling that I can connect with, and I thought we made a great. And now you tell me as soon as you got what you wanted, you stabbed me in the back. Kind of makes you king of the wipers. When we joined forces, I had no intention of doing that, but then Gabby made a run for control of the company and I simply could not allow that to happen.

I know that’s a poor excuse for what I did, but no, it. It is, and we both know this just wasn’t about the company. No, no, no. This was about you holding onto total control. You owed me and you hated it. Yes.

I am sincerely sorry for what I did, and you have every right to be furious.

No, I’m furious. All right.

In fact,

the only reason I haven’t knocked your ass out by now is that it wasn’t your idea to rewire my. That part is true, right? That you found out after the fact. Yes. So in your mind, you were doing what was best for the company?

Sure. He would’ve improved.


does this mean

we could work this up?

You mean can I forgive you? I suppose,

I think we can do that under one condition.

I am willing to put what you did behind me and move on if, if we go back to our original deal. Co CEOs

LE in has become a liability. I’ll terminate him in the morning and then you and I will run the Mirror Enterprises together. And we have a deal.

I’ll contact the legal department and get the ball rolling.

Thank you for being so. Reasonable about this, they still don’t trust you. Mm. And I don’t think you trust me, but I would imagine the old man would be proud of what we’re doing.

I agree. Now, if you excuse me, I’m rabbis.

I was being front with you when I told you you’re playing against a champion. I’m gonna get you ej. You’re not gonna see me coming.

I am sorry about Rachel. I really have my work cut out with her while she’s made it very clear. She wants me nowhere near you. Chloe. Chloe, that is not her decision, and I’ll make that very clear to her. Her feelings are her feelings. Brady, you know what? Maybe this is the universe saying that you and I shouldn’t be together.

I am not writing anything down until I consult an attorney. Well, that’s your choice, but if I were you, I would do whatever I could to get a lighter sentence is make no mistake. We’ve already got you for two martyrs. Unless Marlena gets a miracle, it’s gonna be three.

Thank you. Ah, try not to cry. Always makes my throat dry. Maybe you should just cry. This is really sad. No, it’s okay.

Having you to talk to has really helped. I’m glad I ran in you today. Me too. And Johnny, I want you to know, and no matter what went on between us, I will always be your friend. Thank you. Really. And you is a friend right now.

We have had a lifetime of wonderful memories, haven’t we got?

So you think step’s telling the truth, he doesn’t know where his own sister is? Well, his own sister had him brainwashed to smooth out her love life. So my guess is if he knew where she was, he would draw us a map and Chloe would drive us there. So we go back to the beginning. Where the hell is she? I guess this is the part where I’m supposed to think like Kristen Damira.

I’d rather die.

So what do you say, kiddo? You wanna skip down with mommy? Hmm. Hit the throat. Why can’t daddy come with us? Um, do you know how you and Nora Jane sometimes get mad at each other and you don’t wanna play? But you’re still friends. You just need a little timeout. She’s my friend, not my husband. I know that. Um, but the same principles apply.

Daddy and I need a little timeout, so you’re gonna have to choose who you wanna be with. Leave for your daddy.

What is it? Grandma Code blue.

Dam it. She has fluid in her lungs. Let’s sit her up for a Thor and. Is prepper. What are you doing? Eric? I need you to get out of here. I’m leaving and please get him out. I’m leaving. I love you, mom.

Help me.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Hey, I got here as fast as I could. How’s.

It’s not good.

I’m sorry.

What’s happening? You can’t be in here, John. Don’t tell me that. Just tell me that she’s gonna make it. I am doing everything I can. She’s in paddles. Clear

honey, listen, I’m, I’m sorry you don’t have much time. You need to make up your mind. We’ll, we’ll come back. It’s just a timeout, right? Of course we will. And daddy’s okay with it? Of course he is. And then YouTube will stop fighting and be happy. Yes, promise. Promise.

I’ll go. Okay, . All right. And I’m gonna make you another promise. I’m gonna do everything to make you so happy. You know that I love you. Well then I can stay, sweetheart. I know Mommy. Didn’t you say we have to hurry? Yes, that is right. Sit the road, Jack.

Oh, leaving so soon


Great job,

John. I’m here. I’m, I’m right here. I’m right here. I’m right here. You’re okay. You just gave us a little bit of a scare, but you pulled right through and now you’re gonna beat. You cannot just fine, just fine.

I knew I shouldn’t have stayed in Johanna’s Break this long. Don’t blame yourself. Claire needed you. No, I’m just, I’m scared because you know, if anything happens to mom, Claire, Claire loves her so much. Do you know that mom emails her every single day? Say, I’m not surprised. I don’t know that she could have relapsed.

I would’ve insisted that Claire come home for the holidays. Now, if we known that she would’ve relapsed, we would’ve done all sorts of things.

Claire missed mom’s last Christmas. Hey. Hey, we don’t know that. Don’t give up yet. Johnny’s in there with Sarah right now. She’s doing all she can do unless anyone murdered Kristen yet, because if not, I volunteer. I think my dad and Steve are in line just ahead of you. Yeah, well, there’s two women. And mom is in there fighting for her life and all for what?

Because Kristen wants to get her claws back into Brady.

I remember when I was little, everyone used to make fun of great grandma Caroline because she was always making a Venus and she, she would say, you can laugh all you want, but I have enough faith for the whole. . She did. She did. Yeah. Yeah. She was always so good at making Bella, and I feel like part of her family, you know, when I was taking my first driver’s test, she gave me one of those, um, them.

Oh God. You wear it around your neck? What is that? Oh yeah. Um, a scapular. Scap. Yeah. Yeah. And she said, Brady, it’s not magic. But it’s just a way for you to tell God that, uh, you need a little help.

Oh, Allie, I need a little help right now. Yeah, me too. I could use some of her faith right now. Cause mine’s, mine’s a little shaky.

Hey, we have to remember that she. Didn’t beat the devil up pretty bad, right? So anyone can do it and get through this. She can.

I’m just gonna turn it off.

It’s ra. Oh, you better take that on. I’ll, I’ll go check on grandma. Yeah.

What’s. Hey. Sorry to bother you. How’s Marlena? She’s not great. Uh, I’m sorry. Look, I’m calling because, um, I need to know if you’ve heard from Kristen. No, no, no. Last, last thing I heard she was hold up at the Damaris. Yeah, we were just there. No sign of her. Why are you looking for her? Because I have a warrant for her arrest.

Hi. Oh. Oh, don’t you love? Beautiful. Oh, and your hair smells like sunshine. You always say that. Well, it always does. I must say . I’m rather taking aback to see the two of you together. Oh, you’re taking aback when a mom brings her child to the park. Not a mom. You honey. Could I speak with your mom for a little?

Whatever. hasn’t skipped your mind that Brady has sole custody of Rachel and he wouldn’t want her to arrange mother anywhere near her. Just kidding. Eddie J. Especially alone with her, she’s my daughter and I have every right to see her. Not legally. Mommy, didn’t you say we have to. Ah, yes, that is right, honey

Oh. Always fun to chat with you. Ej. Wait a minute, where are you going now, mommy of this Mommy, because mommy and daddy, time out.

I’m so glad you made it. Yeah. Well, Shawn asked Victor to send the Titan jet. I’m sure he’ll be cranky as hell when I try to thank him for it, but it was very sweet nonetheless. Well, hi. Hey. Be oh. Thank God you’re here. Yeah, cool. I’s gonna be, um, really happy to see you. Yeah. I only wish I could have gotten here sooner.

Um, so I ran into Sarah outside of grandma’s room and she said that, um, while her condition is stable, um, the care that she’s receiving at this point is, uh, palliative. You mean like hospice? Um, not yet. And they’re monitoring her symptoms, but, uh, I think it’s clear that at this point her only chance of surviving is the second dose of the anode.

Right. Meaning. Meaning she doesn’t have very much time left.

You’re getting worse.

Okay. Just, just save your strength, honey. I know not much time. We have people turning over every rock on this planet To find that organ, all you have to do is hang in there a little while longer for us. Okay, that’s good, girl. Hi.

For as long as I’ve known you, you have never given up, and I’m not gonna let you start now.

Steve Bug the Damara Mansion. Yeah, I heard the tape. Uh, Kristen was pretty broken up about it, said she really didn’t want anyone to die. Yeah. But two people did. Two people did and now Marlena’s hanging on for dear life because of her. I’m sorry. You don’t need this right now. No, we’re great. This is exactly what I need right now.

Listen, the tape did, did she say that she blackmailed me? Did she say that she had the damned orchid? Yes. Did she also say that she told me she would let the three women die if I didn’t knuckle under Brady. We have got her. It’s not just the tape. What? The tape itself. It might actually be tricky to admit into evidence.

What are you telling me? That she’s gonna get away with this again? No. No, because I have spoken with Johnny and he’s gonna corroborate their entire conversation. She, hold on. She talked to Johnny. Yes. Yes. I told you that Kristen was broken up about this thing. She admitted the entire thing to Marlene’s grandson.

And because of Johnny, that’s how you got the warrant. Yes, that’s right. I mean, obviously it’s not gonna do anything to bring back Kate or Kayla or help Marlena, but. At least she’s gonna have to answer for what she’s done and then pay. Listen, if you hear from her, I need you to call me. Don’t do anything on your own.

I mean it. I get it. Good.

Um, how’s Allie

Ray roll? Just kind of like zombies right now. Yeah, I’m bad. Hey, tell her that. Yeah, I’ll tell her that you love her. She, she knows that already. Okay.

How is she, how’s Molina? How’d she do? They were able to stabilize her, but it’s still not good. Um, what did.

Leah sends his love. Mm-hmm. . Yeah. Well, Beth stepped out ever, but that can’t be why he called you. Well, he, uh, he was looking for Kristen to have a warrant for her arrest. Yes.

You and mommy are leaving Salem. They’re going on an adventure. We’re on the lamb. Huh? You know, sweetie, I need to talk to your Uncle EJ for just do, do you mind going over there and playing on the jungle Gym? Don’t you just talk? Yes. Uh, I know we did, but um, it’s important and I promise it’s only gonna take a.

It’s not going, whatever. What the hell do you think you’re doing? I’m taking my daughter on a trip. I’ll tell you all. What are you doing? What do you think I’m doing? I’m calling Brady. Nope.

How’d you know it was me? I’m your mom. Best one ever go, baby. I’m so sorry I wasn’t here. No, no, no, no, no, no. You’re here now baby girl. That’s all that matters.

Step. Leave you too alone for a second.

How’s Claire? Oh, she’s good. She’s okay. She, uh, she sends her love, she knows about, uh, Kayla and Kate, so son and I thought it would be best if she stayed in Johannesburg in case she needs some extra therapy sessions. That’s a good idea. And s his love too. But he wanted to stay with her. Just don’t, uh, we don’t want her to have any setbacks.

Tell her I love her always. Well, you can tell her yourself next time she visits, or who knows, maybe you and I can fly over in a few months and surprise her.

That would be wonderful.

Oh, oh baby. Come here. Come here. Oh, I’ve got you. I’ve got you.

Okay. So Uncle Steve planted a. At the Jams and got a recording of Kristen, telling Johnny everything. Mm-hmm. . I’m surprised he went all that trouble and just didn’t kill her on the spot with his bare of hands. Well, I hope it was worth it. What do you mean? Look, I want Kristen to pay as much as anyone else, and obviously I am no lawyer, but Chanel and I have been binging Law and Order and.

If, if Kristen didn’t know that she was being recorded, there’s a possibility she can get that recording thrown out as evidence. Yes. That is why Rafe made sure that Johnny was willing to corroborate it and he agreed He did. Hmm. Good for him. Wow. So I guess Kristen finally went too far. Yeah. Now all we have to do is find the.

It’s up. Sorry.

Thanks. I’ll keep you posted. I’ve been going over Kristen DER’s case file. Oh, Warren Peace would’ve been shorter. Do you think there might be a moving department? One that tipped her off about the morning. I think there’s been a demira all in Salem PD since time I memorial, so she’s probably going through her mask, wardrobe and planning another escape.

Yeah, the woman’s not a flight risk. She’s a flight certainty, but before we go trying to rip masks off at Salem International Airport, I think we should pay a visit to the one person that Kristen might actually lean on for help.

Are you still playing? Keep. Ah, honey, I thought I told you to go play in the jungle gym. I’m tired of it. I wanna go. Ah, my little girl’s not very patient. Can I say goodbye to Daddy first? Of course you can. That’s why I was just calling him. But I, I was telling your uncle EJ not to. Daddy is very busy because grandma’s sick.

And whose fault is that? God, you’re really getting on my nurse. Um, honey, we’re gonna call daddy from the road. You know, why don’t you say goodbye to Uncle ej? Bye, lij. I’m not gonna let you get away with this. Kristin, it’s kidnapping. Oh my God. Please. Like you didn’t do the same with Sammy. When the mood struck and I saw what it did to my.

I am not gonna let you do that to Rachel. I’m calling Brady. I’m warning you. You call Brady and I will tell s Stephan that you stood by and watched Lee put him through, oh, let’s just say a version therapy, and how do you think Brother Stephan is going to react to that?

Keep steering at that desk. Thank you. I’m just walk. What is happening here? Hey, you know, why don’t she let me take you home? No, just shower. Get some some. We get some rest and I’ll be here. I said no. The only reason I’m not in that room right now is because Bell is in there with her mother, so there’s no way I can rest.

There’s no way that I can, I can do anything except stay close to my wife.

When I was a little girl, Ugh. I love this book so much. It took you forever to read it to me, but you did remember every time you would say the end, I would say again, and you would start at the beginning, the very next night,

and you would read to me until I fell asleep. Just

just made me know how much you love me.

You have been the best mom anyone’s ever had,

so I am gonna do for you what you did for me, and I am gonna start the beginning.


When Mary Lennox was sent to miss a white manor to live with her uncle, everyone said she was the most disagreeable looking child ever seen. I wonder which of Stephan’s parents he’ll channel when he’s exacting revenge on you. Father when you least expected or maybe tilt. Or bury you alive. You’ve made your point, so are free to go.

If your conscience won’t stop you, Neith will lie. You’re smart, man. Mommy, we going out. Yes, honey, we can . Bye. I’m again, . Oh. I’m going to miss you.

Don’t worry. It’s just a time out. We won’t be gone forever. Well, bye aj.

So, do the police have any idea where Kristen might be? Doesn’t sound like it. I’m worried that if Kristen knows she has a warrant out for her arrest, she’s gonna try to come and say goodbye to Rachel. Where’s, where’s Rachel now? Her friend Nora Jane’s mom picked her up from school. She knew that I would be here, so she offered to.

Um, does Kristen know that? No, but it would, it wouldn’t be hard for her to figure that out though. I’m, I’m gonna give Leslie a call and just give her a heads up.

Leslie. Hi. It’s, it’s Brady. Listen, she’s, she’s stable. Thank you for, for asking. Appreciate that. Listen, um, There’s a possibility that Kristen may be on her way over there, uh, to, to come pick up Rachel, or listen, under no circumstances. She, what do you mean? Kristen picked her up from school. Oh my God. Hey, I, I had no idea.

Okay. Leslie. Leslie, I, I have to go. I have to go. I’m gonna kill her. I’m gonna kill her.

And across the lawn came the master of Missile White, and he looked as many of them had never seen him, and by his side with his head up in the air and his eyes full of laughter, walked as strongly and steadily as any boy in New Yorkshire MasterCard.

Oh God, that ending gets me every time.

Well, we did it. I read the whole book just like you used to do when I was a little girl.

Mommy, you have to get better.

Come back to me the way calling it to his father, please,

I can’t lose you.

What’s wrong? He’s Kristen. She took Rachel.

Look, my son’s grandmother is dying. If I had that orchid, I would, this isn’t about the orchid. Sick do come in.

So what now? We have a warrant for your sister’s arrest. And what does that have to do with, can you tell us where is she? I don’t know.

Freddie, do you know where she might have gone, where she might be going? If there’s a warrant now for her arrest? My guess is away far, far away. So she knows about the warrant. I have no idea what she does or does not know. Now, if you excuse me, I’m very worried about my son. Well, you should be worried about your niece too.

That was Brady. Apparently Kristen is kidnapped. Rachel.

Okay, here we go. Honestly, goodbye to Grandma Marena and grandpa jumping. You know what? We’ll call them later, but we have to leave right now.

You’re going somewhere.

I always thought it interesting that even though Kristen was adopted, she is so like you

inventive to, Hey Morrow.

And just as fanatical about parenthood as you were,

but I don’t think you played quite enough chess with her. You were always able to see the move after the move, after the next move. I think Kristen is lost if she ever. Her ability to think things through to mix metaphors. She’s badly overplayed her hand and wildly underestimated her opponent.

As dim as Brady is is as as he is.

He’s Kristin’s match in his devotion to Rachel.

I really think that this time, this time she’s going down.

Daddy. Hi Mommy. Mommy said I couldn’t say goodbye to you. Really? Did she? Uh, where were you, uh, where were you going? On a trip for a time out. Really? Hmm. You, Dan now? No. Sweet. I’ve, I’ve been, I’ve been so worried about Grandma that I haven’t had a lot of time to pay attention to what Mommy’s been up to or planning, but since grandma is still in the hospital, I, I don’t think it’s a really good time for you to go anywhere, you know?

So, um, mommy and I definitely need a timeout. So why don’t you go back into your room, take your backpack with you, and you could draw Grandma a really pretty. Because, um, mommy and daddy really do need to talk. Did I do something wrong? No. No, baby. You did not. No, sweetheart, you didn’t. Daddy and I just, we got our wires crossed.

That’s all. I don’t think I ever wanna be a grownup.

Our wires crossed, I think. You would’ve told me that you were int gonna kidnap our daughter. I would’ve remembered that. Let me ask you something to you for one split second. When you’re thinking of pulling off crap like this to you, uh, you ever think about her? Did you give some thought about what it would be like for her to be on the run with a sociopath?

She’s my daughter Brady. And you are gonna take her from me? No, I tried to protect her. Her grandmother’s going to die and it’s going to be your fault. No. Yes, no. And you, you’re gonna have to live the rest of your life knowing that you’re gonna have to trust that. I am not gonna tell Rachel that. You wouldn’t, you wouldn’t.

No, I, you’re right. I wouldn’t. You know why wouldn’t, cuz I’m unlike you. I think about her, I think about her feelings. I think about her happiness. I think about how it would really affect her if she really knew what her mother did and who her mother really. And let me tell you something, Kristin, lately when you pull this kind of crap, I am, I’ve been getting really upset lately.

Like I just might lose control and say anything. So I want you from now on to be very, very careful about pissing me off. Don’t you think that you have the upper hand for one second because you don’t. And this little game, it is over. It’s done. Rafe, my daughter is in the bedroom. Christine Neira, you’re under arrest for that murder.

Kate Brady, Dr. Kayla Johnson. In the attempted murder of Dr. Marlena Evans, you have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law. You have right to an attorney. If you can’t afford one, one will be provided for you.

Oh, is Brady. He has Rachel. Thank God. And Kristen’s been arrested. Good. Couldn’t happen to a nicer bitch. I don’t know if I should be here. Eric. I am just, I, I just feel so much hate in my heart from that one moment. I don’t. Angers are righteous. It’s a hell of a lot more than anger. Horrible, worthless woman is still out there and Kate and Kayla and grandma.

You know what? I keep thinking about Christmas. You know when we thought we were gonna lose grandma, but we didn’t. It’s with his help. Our prayers were stronger than the devil.

Okay, y’all pray with me.

You’re Almighty God. We come together here today and we, we pray for our mother, our grandmother, for strength. The doctors have said they have done all they can do. I ask you to please help her. We put all our prayer. In your hands.

In the name of the Father, A son in the Holy Spirit. Oh man,


Kids are in the, I want me to call him,

was reading to me. I guess I fell asleep. Oh, that’s good. You can go back to sleep. It’s good for you.


What do you want, sweetheart?

I want to go home.

Take me.

Oh, you didn’t come down for dinner? I thought you’d stepped out. I was here, but I was dealing with a pair of uninvited guests. Anyone I know, commissioner Hernandez and Detective Hunt. Again, they were here before. Yeah. Looking for Kristen. , did they tell you the good news? They have an arrest warrant for your sister, but they can’t find her?

They were hoping I could help them out with that. And could you?

Transcript provided by Suzanne


 Well, well, well, if it isn’t exactly the person I wanted to see, Mel, I can’t say the same. Haven’t I stack Valley? Not, not so quick. Kristen, you and I need to talk about how you try to steal my life. God, no. After everything that Kristen has done, I can’t believe I loved her. How the hell am I supposed to face Roman and Steve?

Hey, hey, none of this, none of this is your fault. You know that, right? This is Kristen. Kristen is the reason that they lost their, their wife’s. Yeah. And now I’m afraid that my dad is gonna join him. Hey, grandpa. John is gonna find a way to save grandma somehow. Yeah, I’m gonna check on him. I think you went to the chapel to to pray.

Ah, tell em I’m praying for too. I will. Thank you. Yeah,

that was Indonesian authorities still no sign off. They’ve searched every inch of his secret lab and every Dememer property in the region, but he’s in the wind. Has a mastermind at disappearing this time. He had the help of my new brother-in-law. You can’t talk to her like that. You owe the lady an apology.

You’re right, Lee. I’m sorry. Gabby, I’m sorry that you’re nothing but a cold bottom feeding snake who only gives a damn about yourself. What did you say? Okay, that’s enough.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Well guess we’re even. What does that mean? It means that Lee here must have gotten his ego bruised when I knocked him on his ass earlier. Really? This isn’t about what you did to me. This is about what you did to Gabby . What? What I did to Gabby. Suddenly, you’re the hero of this story. What you come riding to arrest?

Because they said a couple of mean things. You who lied to? Who rewired my brain so that I would hate her. You know, the funny thing is you probably didn’t need to do any of that because considering who Gabby is, I probably would’ve ended up hating her on my own. Save it. You two deserve each other.

Are you all right? I’m fine. He’s wrong about you, Gabby. I know who you really are.

I promised Gabby that I was gonna make Lee pay for what he did. Without Ralph corroborating her story about Stephan’s brainwashing, there’s not enough evidence to prosecute El. He gets away with it. Why don’t you arrest his accomplice? Kristin Damara instead.

And I’m really quite busy and not in the mood for this. You know what? I don’t give a damn. We have a lot to catch up on. Ah, hard pass. Uh, where do I begin? How about you Blackmailing Brady into dumping me, threatening the people that he loves so that you could move into his home. And let’s not forget about you having your own brother, Stephan Brainwashed.

So he would distract me away from Brady. You know, maybe you could put this in a strongly worded email. God, it’s so much better saying it to your face. Oh God. Are you done? Done? Yeah, done. No, I’m just getting started. Oh, kitty. Because none of that compares to what you did to Kate and Kayla, thanks to you hiding that orchid.

Two innocent women are. And your original bargaining chip, Marlena, that poor woman is barely clinging to life. So what do you have to say about any of this? I have no idea what you’re talking about.


I’m so, I’m sorry to interrupt.

Something happened to. No, no, there’s, uh, there’s no change. I, I, I just wanted to check up on you.

How are you guys? How you doing? You holding up?

Come on. I’m okay, man. Yeah.

Oh, I’m not good kid. I can’t believe that I’m

Allie. Hey. How’s grandma? The same. Will and Eric are in there with her now. I didn’t wanna leave the room, but she’s only allowed two visitors at a time. Well, I’m sure they’ll, uh, they’ll let us know if anything changes. Yeah. Hey, okay,

Johnny, what are we gonna do if she doesn’t get better? I mean, what are we supposed to do without her?

I’m so sorry.

We’re No, I mean, it’s my fault. It’s my fault she’s in that hospital. No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. Just for for months. I, I, I let Kristen hold that’s serum over my head. I didn’t say a damn word. Son. You were in an impossible situation. Dad. I, I made the wrong choice. You knew you tried to help me. You, you, you, you knew that there.

There was something I was hiding. There was a reason why I let Kristen inside the house. You knew it’s only cause it didn’t seem like you to change your mind about her. So suddenly I wanted to tell you the truth. So many times. So many times. I know that I keep thinking about the time when I found you going through all her stuff.

Yeah, that was, that was the day. That was the day I almost told you everything. Yeah, I know. And then she walked in. I’m telling you kid, it was like, she just just sucked the life right outta you. I caved. We caved to her threats over and over and over again. I just thinking to myself, I should, I should have, I should have just told you.

I should have told you what I knew about Kristen having you Orchid. I should have taken the risk, but I didn’t. But now we’re in this position. Kate and Kale are gone. Kristen should be locked up. Maybe that’s where we would be, but I’m sorry. I’m really sorry.

So you’re just gonna act like, I don’t know what you did. Is that how we’re playing this ? Honestly, Chloe, I have no idea what you’re talking about. I mean, what great stories you made of such an imagination. Brady told me everything. How you blackmailed him into threatening to withhold the treatment. How you had him on the hook this entire time until he had no choice but to take Rachel.

It was only then that you finally agreed to bring him the orchid. Okay. I really don’t know what to say. I mean, none of this sounds familiar. No, no. You did not get to do that. You did not get to act like none of it happened. Yes, none of it did happen. Honey, my God. You are starting to come unhinged.

Sweetheart. I know you do not get to gaslight me. You do not get to upend my entire life and cause death and destruction, and then pretend like it never happened. Well, you know what? Again, I don’t know what to tell you, but it is time for you to do it. The rope, don’t touch me.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. What you gonna do, Chloe? Kill me. You know what? I just might.

Kristen is a murder. I understand. I know you blame her for Kate and Kayla’s deaths. She’s the reason they’re gone. She had that orchid. She had a chance to save them, and she chose not to. Steve. I am as disgusted by what she did as anyone, but I can’t arrest her. Why not? Because everything we know about what Kristen did is secondhand.

We have no direct evidence from her. No confession from her or her accomplices. Actually we do.

Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marlena or the other women. I swear to you.

Look, I will admit I hate the orchid. Knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum, sounds like a confession.

So, where’d you get that recording? I acquired it myself. Planted a bug in the demer, matched in you and Kristen just admitted everything. Well, not directly to me. I knew she would never admit what she did, and while I was there, I might have, uh, caused a slight distraction. And do I want to know what? It was better that you don’t ask.

Right. So you planted a bug while she was distracted. Yeah. And sure enough, as soon as I left, she spilled everything to her nephew, Johnny. So she’s talking to Johnny on that recording. That’s right. And now we’ve got a confession straight from the horse’s. Well, that’s great. That’s great. This just confirms everything that we believed about Kristen and the orchid.

There is just one problem. We can’t use it.

I keep thinking, I’m so grateful that Grandma Kate and I were on good terms in the end, and I was so upset with her for keeping quiet about my dad. Kidnapping mom. Yeah. How were you able to get past. I just realized that she wasn’t trying to hurt me. She was protecting my dad, and I’m so grateful that I got past it because I was able to tell her that I forgive her and I love her.

You know, if I, if I hadn’t been able to tell her that, Hey, hey, hey, hey. She knew. She always knew, just like Grandma Marlena knows how much we love her, but Johnny, it’s not enough. I don’t wanna just remember what we had, I want, I want it to go on, you know, I wanna make new memories. I want more.

I was, I was in constant fear that if I told you about what Kristen was doing, that she would just, she would just destroy the flower. The orchid and she would let them all get sick again. But hell, it happened Anyway. It happened and it’s all on me. It’s on my head because I, I didn’t have the guts to come and tell you, Don, stop.

That’s, that’s the deal. Stop right there and listen to me. You listened to me. I’m listening. You got nothing to apologize for. Kristin was, was threatening Marlena’s life. If you would’ve told me who knows what she would’ve. Maybe you and I could have figured out something together though. That’s why I should Maybe, maybe.

What if she was watching? Well, I don’t know. What if she got surveillance or cameras on the house? You know how resourceful she is? If you No, that’s, you’re the one that’s, you are the reason Doc Kate and Kayla survived the first time. You sacrificed your happiness for them. If you didn’t make that sacrifice, they wouldn’t have gotten the treatment and we would’ve lost them months ago.

You are the only reason Kristin didn’t let Marla die.

Admit it. Admit that you let them. Come on, put the poker down. Chloe. We both know that you’re not going to kill anyone. Really. Really? I’ve done it before. Don’t underestimate me, Chloe. The hell are you doing? Doing what I should have done years ago. Take my life back. She’s lost her mind. Shut up. She’s acting like nothing happened.

Like we don’t all know that she’s a murderer. We don’t. Why not? Because no matter what Kristen has done, and we both know she’s done some terrible things, that poker is not the answer. He’s right. You know, you shut your mouth. Okay, Chloe, think about this. Think about your son. You have too much to live for you.

Do you say you wanna take your life back? This is not the way to do it.

I, I need, I need.

Oh, Stephan, thank you. Thank God you came when you did. Oh, thank me. You’re lucky I don’t use Sonny myself. I should go. Wait. Why was Stefan so angry at you? I thought you convinced him to get his programmer first. I thought so too. So what happened? We couldn’t find Ralph. Okay? And then I had this idea that maybe Marlina could reverse it somehow.

So I went over to the hospital to ask for help. Isn’t she very sick? I I wasn’t asking her to go clubbing. I was asking for her help. This is what she does. She helps people. And you know what? I could, I could argue that by asking her, it was giving her purpose and, and hope. I know your intentions were good, Gabby.

You’re a passionate person. You go after what you want. Stephan had no right to lash out at you like. You don’t deserve that. Well, this isn’t about what I deserve. What is it about now? Sorry. No. What? Nope, nope, no, to you. Defending me, comforting me, telling me I’m a good, passionate person, and that Stephan is, is treating me the wrong way.

Well, he’s treating me this way because of what you did to. Gabby, wait. Oh. Oh, wow.

I keep thinking about how many times Grandma Marlina helped me save me. Really, like when I started to remember what happened in London. I mean, there’s no way that I could have gotten through remembering what Charlie did to me if it wasn’t for her. Yeah, I know she used, uh, hypnosis to help you recover your memories from that night.

Yeah, but I mean, it wasn’t the hypnosis, it was just her being there, you know, making me feel so safe and so loved. Like it was, it was really her strength that got me there. It gave me the courage to remember, it’s her love and her strength that allowed me to accept what happened to me. And then she helped you.

I really don’t think I would’ve been able to rebuild my life if it wasn’t for her. Be a good mom to Henry, start my own business. Yeah, man. She has done that for so many people in our family, in our town. Well, we, we got to call her grandma, but to everyone else, she was a friend. A. My hero.

I just hope that, uh, while she’s lying there in that bed, she can feel all the love of, of everyone whose life she’s touched.

See, I’m not upset with the choices you made. In fact, I am. I am grateful. For what you did GR doc, I mean, son, you gave up the woman you love for her. Yeah, but she’s your life dad. You know how hard it is for me to, to, to see you like this, afraid that you’re going, that’s not gonna happen. You, you said earlier that Yeah, yeah.

I know. You cut me in a moment of weakness here. You’re your stepmother. She’s a fighter and she’s got more fight in her than. Our story is far from over. Trust me. I trust you. I believe that

speaking of our story, I, I’ve been doing nothing but thinking about our lives together as a family, , and I’ve, I’ve been, I’ve been thinking about all the crap that I gave Marla back in the day when I was a kid. You butted heads now and then. Now, and then . Really? Now, and then, all right. You were a handful.


How if that matters, now does, it doesn’t, I don’t even think I gotta tell you this, but you know that I love her like my mom. Right? I know that. That’s why Kristen threatened. She knew that you would do anything. Well, she would’ve done the same thing for

what’s wrong. It’s nothing. What did you hurt your hand punching step? It’s, it’s fine. It. All right, let me see it. Lemme see it. Your knuckles look bad. Might need an x-ray. He’s got a hard head. Tell me about it. Luckily you’re not a surgeon or a piano player, so you’ll be able to sign a mayor paperwork.

You’re assuming I still have a job there. Oh, you’ll find work. Can you make a fist?

It was worth it. I’m glad you think so. You know, nobody asked you to defend my. Nobody had to. I’ll just go get some ice. That’s fine. Stay here. I’ll get it.

So you gonna gaslight me now too? Tell me you weren’t part of this scheme to monkey with my brain. Nah, I was just playing with Chloe. You and I are family. We can speak honestly with each other. Right? Well, I can honestly say if Chloe used this on you, you would’ve deserved it. Wow. So now you are here to take revenge on me too.

Oh, I think I’m entitled, don’t you? After everything you did to me also, you could hold on to Brady. Oh, I’m sure. If we thought really hard, we could come up with many things you’ve done in the name of love. I have never withheld lifesaving medical treatment for three innocent women. Okay. I gave them the Sierra, and yet two of them are dead.

All because you couldn’t stand the fact that Chloe and Brady were together. Brady and I share a daughter. A daughter. They kept from me. Now, if you had a child, you would understand, from what I understand, Brady’s kicked you out and there is no coming back from this one. Especially not if Marlena dies. So I’m just supposed to let Rachel go.

Seems like your only option. Brady has full custody and any judge worth his soul will see too. You’re not allowed near that little girl, and if there’s any justice, you never will be.

Who the hell do you think you are? I’m the son of a bitch you can’t control anymore. I can’t even stand and look at you. Get outta my sight.

Get out.

So you recorded this without Kristen’s permission. There was kind of the point. We don’t have any kind of warrant for a listening device at that the mayor mentioned. You know, as well as I do, this constitutes an illegal search. Isn’t a recording considered admissible in this state? If one of the parties gives consent?

Are you saying that Johnny was aware that you planted the bug when he got Kristen to confess? Steve, it’s possible and I bet if you went to him right now and explain the situation, no, it does not work that way. I can’t falsify evidence. This confession is real. Ray, why don’t you use it to pressure Kristen into pleading guilty?

No, she’s too cagey for that. Okay, then go to the da. She’s never been shy about bending the rules. There must be some backdoor to getting this confession into evidence. Steve, I can’t do it. The law is the law. Actually. I may have a loophole we can use.

Hey, you know what’s funny is I spent all that time trying to make that movie about grandma’s life. I picked the wrong thing to focus on. I wrote a script about the. Worst stuff that ever happened to her, cuz I thought it’d be, I don’t know, scary or cool. People would wanna watch it. Yeah. Well you got the scary part, right?

I mean, we both know that from experience. Yeah, yeah, I know. But, but the Marlene Heavens story could have been about so many other things. The story of a woman who changed the world, who witnessed tragedy, who suffered heartbreak, and never let it change. Now the story of an icon. I watched that movie. Uh

uh Rafe. What’s up? Hey Johnny, are you available to come down to the station right now? Yeah, pretty. I. Sure. Yeah, I’ll be right there.

Is everything okay? I don’t know. Uh, RA just asked me to go down to the station. I told him I would, but I No, go ahead. You sure you’re gonna be okay here? No, but a lot of people love grandma and, um, I have a lot of friends and family I can lean on. Right.

I love you. I love you.

You know what really bugs me about this whole thing though. I should have forced Kristen’s hands sooner. You still can’t blame yourself for that. I knew. I knew that Marlene and the others, that they were gonna need another dose of the serum. Eventually, if I’d have done something sooner, we would’ve gotten to the orchid in time, you know?

And I didn’t do, you know, second guessing yourself isn’t gonna do anybody and could besides you did do something, you and your brother that was, that was Eric’s idea. He knew that Rachel would be our best bargaining. And that Kristen would do anything.

Oh my goodness. Here we go. This is the best hot chapter ever. Mommy. Oh, well I told you I was gonna be taking you somewhere fun, didn’t I? The daddy said, Nora Jane’s mom was supposed to pick me up from school. Why’d you come instead? Well, your daddy has had you all to himself for the past few days and uh, I wanted quality time with my best girl.

why’d you leave the house? Daddy said it was because you did bad things. Is that what daddy said?

Well, sweetheart, you’re a big girl now, and I can be honest with you.

The reason that I had to leave was because of Chloe. I don’t like her. I I know sweetheart. I know I don’t like her either. She’s selfish and dangerous, but she is the reason. Why we can’t be together. Thought you could use this. Thanks. Did I just threaten to murder Kristen with a fireplace poker? You did? I don’t know.

It’s just she was pretending like she’s innocent and then taunting me and I just lost it. What was I thinking? Well, you said you were trying to take back your. by murdering someone maybe not the most effective strategy. God, there’s just something about that woman. Every time I’m near her, I just lose all capability of rational thought.

Are you freaked out? Are you kidding? When I walked in here and saw you wielding that poker, I thought it was, please don’t say sexy or something equally weird. No, I was actually going to say Badass Noble. After everything Kristen has put you through, you are more than justified to take up arms, but she’s put us both through.

Speaking of, have you spoken to Gabby? Were you able to get Ralph’s programming reversed? Hi, asked you this for some mice and she let me fill up the book. I really appreciate it. It means a lot. You, you didn’t have to do this. Mm-hmm. , what the hell? Oh, you thought I was gonna help you, didn’t you? After everything that you’ve done to me.

Hey, John, Johnny. Hey, thanks for calling Matt. Yeah, yeah, of course. Well, what’s. Uh, well, Steve has some potential evidence and uh, we’d like you to hear it. Okay.

Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marna or the other women. I swear to you.

Look, I will admit I hid the organ knowing that these women would need more doses of the. But I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead. Yeah, maybe not. But that’s what happened. How’d you get that when you interrupted Kristen and me at the mansion earlier?

You planted a recording device. I couldn’t let Kristen get away with what she did. She had that orchid and she let them die. It was the only way to get justice for. I understand. So what I mean, this means you guys can use the recording to nail Kristen. No, not exactly. That’s where you come in. I don’t understand.

Technically this recording is inadmissible in a court of law was made without either person’s consent. Assuming you didn’t know about the bugeye plant, Steve, well maybe you saw me. We don’t know. I just wanna make sure that no one is asking you to lie here and you know that, okay, so, so what does that mean?

What, what can I do you heard Kristen say these things directly? That means is not hearsay.

Are you asking me to testify in court against my aunt? No. No. Exactly. What we need is a sworn statement from you. That you had a conversation with Kristen about the orchid and that this is the conversation and well, that should be enough to get an arrest warrant for her. You willing to do that? Of course, I’ll do it.

I did speak to Gabby. And I don’t think it’s gonna be so easy to undo what Rolf did. Apparently Lee sent Dr. Rolf to parts unknown. Not even the cops have any leads. Ugh. Well, Brady said that Gabby thinks that maybe Marlena could have it reversed. Ilene is practically on her deathbed. You think Gabby gave a damn about that?

Well, you know Gabby, when she wants something very little stands in her way. I’ve noticed that too. I’m sorry. You’ve hit a dead end. Actually, I’m kind of relieved really. Gabby said that you’d made up your mind that you wanted to be deprogrammed. I did, man. When I found proof of what Rolf had done to my brain, I, I felt violated.

I wanted to get back to normal. Normal meaning the guy who fell in love with Gabby. Except when I just saw her, I was only repulsed. Well, that could be because Ralph’s commands are still in your head. No, I was repulsed by her actions today. The fact that she’s so blinded by what she wants, that she didn’t even take a second to think about what Marlena’s family was going through.

Can’t be with somebody.

What about you? What about me?

Now that you know, I’m Brady dumped you because of Kristen’s blackmailing, does that mean you wanna be back with him?

No. We can spend the rest of our lives playing Monday morning. Quarterback,

do you have any idea how many regrets I have a number of things I wish that I could take back if I Sure, sure.

But Kate and Kayla, they’re gone. Dad, there’s no way to take that back. No.

And Doc doesn’t have any time to lose. That’s why all my energy right now has to go into just getting her home happy and healthy. Is there any, is there anything that I can do? You’re doing everything just by being here, kid

What the doctors saying anyway, what’s what they say? They’re just giving her the best care they can. While I’ve got every Black patch agent out there trying to find that damn Dr. Roth on that lifesaving orchid,

then there’s, we’re doing all we can do right.

You’re right. I shouldn’t have expected you to help me. Not after all the lies. I told you that. Why are you smiling ? Sorry. It’s, it’s just. The thing I’ve been the most afraid of isn’t that you’re angry at me. It was that you didn’t care anymore, but the passion was gone. But you went to the Salem in filled a bucket with ice just so you could make me think you were going to help only to dump it on my head.

That’s not passion. I don’t know what is.

I did talk to Brady. He explained how he never stopped loving me and how it was torture when Kristen forced him to end our relationship. He asked if I would take him back, if we could pick up where we left. And what’d you tell him? I told him that when he broke up with me, my heart was broken. I felt like my entire life was just falling apart.

And then you were there and you, you helped me put it back together again. You helped me heal and. I developed feelings for you. Real feelings. I’m glad to hear you say that. Well, Gabby would say that you only care about me because you were programmed too at first. Sure. But I am not a machine. My feelings can grow.

They can change. And my feelings for you are very strong and real, too.

Chloe, you’re the only one I wanna be.

Thanks. I want to thank you for doing this, Johnny. I know Kristen’s your family. Hey, you’re family too. And so was aunt.

She’d be proud of you right now. I hope so. I, I want you to know I will do whatever I can to get justice for her, even if it means sending my aunt Kristin to prison forever.

And Carol’s off today. Which means I’m getting that.

Ah, morning Stephan Detective Commissioner. What can I do for you? Well, we have a warrant for the arrest of Kristen Damira. Sorry, she’s not here. Where is she?

So I can’t see you anymore because of Chloe. Yeah, that’s right. She told you daddy to make me leave and go away. I want a family to be together. I know you do, sweetheart. So do I. But that’s not gonna happen right now. But you know what? The two of us can be together. Just me and you. Mm-hmm. like two peas in a pod.

Only if we are together, we can’t stay here anymore. So what do you say? We love this hot cocoa. And leave SE alone together.

Grandpa, what is it? What’s wrong? You both have to come. Right now it’s from Marlena.

Could your grandma Marlan is hanging in there buddy? She’s got a lot of good doctors around her trying to do everything they can to help. Hey, I, I know you’re scared, Tate. I, um, you just gotta think good thoughts, buddy. That’s, that’s what she needs right now. And I appreciate you calling and checking on everyone.

Sweet of you.

Bye son. Oh God. Brady, Gabby. What? What? What’s wrong? I need to see Marlene now.

Father, of course, I’m not proud of what I’ve done, but I won’t go down for anything. The police can’t prove that I was working with Dr. Rolf and that’s how it’s gonna stay. You don’t have to worry about that either. I position as ej Dara’s second in command is completely intact. Yes, I’m aware. I made an enemy of his brother Stephan.

Arrest assured I can handle him.

I have to go. That might be Gabby.

Harold, can you get that?

It’s time for you to answer for what you did to Kayla.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.


what, uh, what brings you by? I’m just invited to make something up for breakfast. I thought you’d be at the hospital. Yeah, I, I was, uh, I was there all night. Um, I just, I, I, I came by to check on my grandpa Roman. I’m sure he appreciated that. Can’t losing. His wife and his sister on the same day. It’s unimaginable.

How are you doing? Ah, I’m, I’m okay. You don’t look okay. I mean, clearly you haven’t slept once. Last a. I, I, I don’t remember.

It’s green that you wanna be there for your family. You have to take care of yourself too. Yeah,

I know. I know. I just, uh, I can’t stop thinking about my grandma, Marna. Well, what are the doctors saying? Has she made any improvement?

Gabby, my lane is in critical condition. Okay. Visitation is strictly limited. This is urgent. Everything depends on it. I don’t understand. Come on. Do I have to spell it out for you? Brady? You were at my wedding when I remembered that Lee brainwashed Stephan into hating me, and, and Stefan wants it undone.

Rolf is Mia a and I need somebody else, namely the renowned Dr. Marlena Evans to make it. So this is about your love life. Are you out of your freaking mind?

You know, this might sound crazy, but I’m glad you’re here. We have a lot to discuss. Clearly you’re angry, which is completely understandable, but I’m confident we can be adults about this. Let’s just have a conversation and hash this out a conversation. Uh, I don’t think so.

I didn’t know you guys were getting in so early I would’ve picked you up. No, no, it’s fine. Airport Ron. Morning rush. You didn’t need that. On top of everything else, I’m just so glad you’re both here. Papa really needs us now. Where’s he? He got up early and went out. I think he needed some time alone. Steve, you don’t wanna do this, I feel for you.

I really do, and I am so sorry for. Sorry. Sorry. Won’t bring my wife back. You knew those women would need boosters to survive and you said nothing. Okay. Just take it easy. Selfish, pathetic, psycho. You couldn’t get Brady to love you, so you decided to blackmail them. You held three lives over his. Meanwhile, that virus was ticking away.

But you didn’t care, did you? No, I did care. Oh, you didn’t care. The only person you cared about was yourself.

If you weren’t so cold blooded at the Ranged, you know, Marlena would be home right now. Kate would be alive, my wife would be alive. Took away the love of my. The mother of my children, then now you need to pay.

I’ve never seen Papa like this before. His instinct as a father, as a pi, you know, is to solve it. Find the solution that’ll make everything okay again. But he can’t this time. We gotta take that stress off him, let him know we’re gonna be okay, and we have to take care of him too. We. Starting the minute he walks through that door.

Look, guys, I, I’m here for that a thousand percent, but while he is out, I need, I need to go see my mom. I’m all, she has left and I can’t turn my back on her. Of course. Thanks. Uh, I won’t be long.

What’s this? A note from mom. Be careful with it. Okay, Steph. Sorry. It’s just she wrote that the day that she, those are her last words to me. Hey, what do you mean? I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to her. Someone robbed me of that.

My grandma, Marlene is not saying goodbye yet. She’s, uh, . She’s, she’s fighting with everything she has and she will win. I mean, this is a woman who beat the devil twice. Yeah. Yeah. But, uh, Wendy, this is, this is bad. This is a deadly disease that they don’t know how to treat. I mean, her doctors are, Obviously, but it’s all experimental.

You know, they’re just, it’s like just throwing everything at it and hoping something works well, something will.

Yeah. That’s what I’m praying for.

Look, I, I wish I could stay and talk more, but I, I really gotta go, go be with your family. Uh oh. Uh, The last time I saw you, you were headed over to Gabby’s, talked to her about giving Lee a second chance. How’d that go? Yeah. Stephan got there before I did. Oh, no. So what he told her that we knew about the brainwashing before the wedding.

E. Yep. So she tore into me and then throw me out. At least should try. Right. But like I told, He and Gabby getting back together, it’s not gonna happen. There’s only one person she wants to be with now.

Ah, , guess I deserve that. Although violence doesn’t seem like stopped, it’s not other way. We’ll say. Connecting with your glass jaw was extremely satisfying. Uh,

relax, pal. I’m not gonna hit you again.

Hello. It is tempting. It’s not every day you find out you were brainwashed.

If you tell anyone who said this, I will deny, deny, deny, but I’m sorry. I know it’s no excuse, but I was desperate. I was desperately in love with Gabby and terrified I would lose her in love. Will have you do some pretty crazy things. In your case, it wasn’t just brainwashing, it was attempted murder.

Do you know that you turned off the machines keeping me alive? You’re damn right. I know.

You know, suddenly I’m thinking maybe one punch wasn’t.

This isn’t about me or my love life. This is about Stephan. I’m sorry to disappoint you, Gabby, but Stephan is not a priority right now. Really, I’m surprised with everything your father’s gone through. You have no compassion for a brainwashed man. Lee took away Stephan’s free will. His ability to, to decide what he feels and he wants it undone.

He wants his mind to be right again. He needs help and I know Marlena would wanna help him. And Gavin, you, you, you know what Marlena wants? She wants not to die. Just like the two women for her who had the disease did. I don’t see the harm in just letting me ask her. I can’t, I can’t flip you serious right now.

She’s hanging on by. She needs every ounce of energy she can possibly muster. Just to stay conscious, you want to just skip the whole death door thing and and book a session with her. You just stop to think how insane that is right now that you’re thinking that, Brady, you need to think about this.

Because Stephan wasn’t just programmed to hate me. He was programmed to love Chloe. So once he’s back to normal, she’s gonna be available again. More unbelievable. I’m sorry, I thought that was gonna make this urgent for you too, but apparently you don’t love Chloe anymore. Of course. I love.

Oh my. I trip . Oh, I’m so happy to see you. . When did you get in? I just said a little while ago. So sorry about your stepmother. I know you two are really close. Thanks. None of us ever imagined that she could relapse, let alone, uh, I just wish I’d been here anyway. Uh, how are you? How are, how are you doing? I’m okay.

Yeah. I heard, uh, some stuff about your brother. I wasn’t really sure if it was true. It seemed pretty out there. Ah, it’s, hmm. Sorry. That sounds rough. Oh, you’d learned one lesson. Stay the hell out of other people’s lives. Hey, what’s going on? Nothing. Gabby and I are just, uh, talking about nothing important.

Lease not to. . Okay. Well I was just here to check on Marlene and see if there’s anything I can do. No, it’s good that someone is here for the right reasons. Am I missing something? Just a wild display of selfishness on Gabby’s part. It’s actually the opposite of selfish. I’m trying to help somebody to care about, she wants Stephan back.

No, shocker. But she thinks the way to do that is to go bug Marlena right now. And that’s not gonna happen. What? You know, forget it. I, I’m leaving. Okay. Chloe, just a heads up. Stephan wants to be the programmed and I will make it happen. So it’s not a question of if he walks away from you, but when Wow, you’re awfully confident.

Yeah, true love always wins.

You’re not gonna deny it, are you? Ah, I pulled the plug. Still can’t believe it. Look, if her, both of us, your sister showed up when she did. Otherwise I’d be dead. Look, you have to understand I wasn’t in my right mind. All I could think was if you came back, the woman I loved would no longer be mine. And as I said before, it’s not an excuse.

I know what I did was reprehensible, but it was a moment of mad. I’m no murderer. Hmm. So you’re going with temporary insanity. That’s what it was. I swear and I regret it. All of it. I mean that s Stephan, I wish there was something I could do to make it up to you. There is Marlena Evans is in the hospital dying of a terrible disease and I need to reverse what was done to.

And there’s one person who can do both. Who? Dr. Rolf, you wanna make up for what you’ve done? You’re gonna help me find him. Sorry, I have no idea where Rolf is. Maybe you should ask your sister. You’re scaring me, Steve. Oh, look. I would’ve done anything to help this woman. I swear to you. We’re going. You swear.

I swear. You do. I do. Really? And why didn’t you come to us with that orchid so we could have made more serum to save their lives? I’ll tell you why. Because you would’ve lost your leverage over Brady. Stop, please. Spiteful bitch. Bitch, you that orchid wasn’t even stolen. I bet you have it hidden somewhere waiting for Marlena to die.

But you love having that power, don’t you? Power to take lives. Guess who has that power? Now? You have made so many innocent people suffer. Now it’s your turn. I want you to think about your family, your. Knowing it’s about to slip away, excuse me.

Please don’t do anything you’re gonna regret, please. Oh,

Alex turned off your phone. That is so unbelievably wrong. I know. I could have been with mom, I could have been comforting her. I could. Holding her hand, telling her how much I love her.

She gave me this when she was sick the first time around. Yeah, I remember It’s Grandma Caroline’s.

I told her I’d give it back to her as soon as she got better, but I didn’t. How much more thoughtless could I be? No, Steph. She gave me this beautiful, generous gesture, and I told her I would do something for her in return, and I just forgot. Once mom got better, I, I took it for granted that she’d stay that way.

Maybe she thinks that’s why I wasn’t there in the end, because I was being so casual and cavalier about it all. I assumed since she got better, once she’d get better again, so it blew her off. Steph. Hey, look at me. Mom would never think that it’s not your fault. You weren’t there. It’s Alex’s God. I never should have gotten involved with him.

Yeah, I was surprised you did. Honestly, after that last guy, I mean, you just said you weren’t ready to get involved with anyone yet. And I wasn’t, and I told Alex numerous times that I, I wasn’t interested in him and that I didn’t wanna date anybody that I worked. So then what happened? He wore me down. I guess he was just so damn persistent.

I decided to give it a shot. Look where that got me. How does that feel? How do you think Kayla felt when she took her last breath? Well, Steve Scott, stop.

Why would Chris know where Rolf is? She employed him for years, but you set him up in Jakarta. It makes sense. That you would move him when things got hot. I can see why you’d think that, but I was surprised as anyone to learn he’d taken off. Must have been a huge relief that he was gone by the time a Indonesian authority showed up.

Huh? Wouldn’t want him flipping on you. You know, I bet I could tear this entire room to shreds and not find a single piece of evidence linking you to Roth. I’m telling you, I don’t know where he is and you’re not in contact. No, obviously you got spooked and went off the grid. If I, if I knew anything, anything at all, I’d tell you, but I don’t, you believe me.

Right. I’ll put it this way. If I find out that you were lying, that punch you just got or feel like a pat on the back compared to what’s coming your way.

You’re gonna want to clear out your desk at Dara. That’s not your call. Ejs the only one who can fire me. You think ejs gonna let you stay on after what you’ve done? Nothing is more important to EJ Dara than family. Nothing.

Nothing more important than covered his own ass.

Rolf, it’s me. So Gabby wants Marlena to undo what Rolf did to step him. She actually thought she could just sail into Marlena’s room and just make her. I mean, I, I shot her down. That’s why she was nastier than usual. Oh, well, she was reason to be nastier to me than usual since I’m with the love of her life.

Yeah. It’s hard to forget. I’m sorry, Brady, that came out the wrong way. It’s, it’s okay. You came here to see Marlina. Yeah. But I know that you’re going through a lot right now too, so I wanted to check on you. I appreciate that. I mean, I mean, does that mean you ? No, uh, sorry, I, I’m not gonna make a fool outta myself.

No, no. Brady, you were never full, and I’m assuming that you wanted to ask me if I had changed my mind about you.

So I’m guessing things with Alex got serious pretty quickly. And that’s why what he did hurts so much. But whatever pain he’s caused me seems so small compared to, it feels wrong to even talk about it. It’s probably because the person you normally talk to about these kinds of things, he’s gone.

She was our rock.

And not to judge dad, but wasn’t always there. Mom was the constant.

Now we have to find a way to be okay without her hop a will too.

It’s just us now.

Damn it. What the hell are you trying to do? Do you, do you, do you want to go to prison? Johnny, listen. You, you need to stay away from Kristen.

Hey. Hey. Just try to catch your breath.

Alright. Hell with. She deserved it. You need to go. Are you defending her after what she did now? Okay, go ahead. You take care of the monster. Who killed your aunt Kayla and Kate. Don’t you forget your grandmother might be next.

Thank you. Thank you. You’re saving my life and I didn’t do it for you. I did it for Steve.

So how’s your dad? Uh, I haven’t actually seen him yet. Uh, he wasn’t home when Joey and I got there, so I thought I’d come by and see Roman and pay my respects. Uh, do you know if he’s around? Yeah. Johnny Damara was just here a little while ago to check up on him. It’s like the saddest trip to Salem ever.

From here. I’m going to baby to see my mom. You want me to come with you? I could. Uh, wait outside until you’re done. No, no. That’s very sweet of you. I can handle it. You sure? Yeah. They might not even let me in. Uh, they said that it would depend on the state that she’s in when I get there. Oh, man. Yeah. She probably hasn’t had a single visitor since she was admitted, which I totally understand.

I mean, she’s done some terrible things. I I can’t just abandon her. I know what you mean. People will definitely judge me for standing by my brother’s side after what he did, but I can’t desert him. You know, pretty much all he has left. Is there anything I can do? Thanks. But uh, this is Lee’s mess and I’m pretty sure if there was any way you could clean it up, you would.

Don’t worry, Ralph, I’m on a burner phone. No one’s gonna trace this call to your new location. Well, I’m sorry, you were starting to like Jakarta, but you needed to be moved. Fair warning, Stefan Damara suspects. I know where you are. I’m doing everything that I can to convince him otherwise, but you need to do your part two.

Anyone shows up and starts asking questions. You’ve never heard of me.

Are you visiting Chloe? No, I was in Lee’s room trying to see if I could find out where Rolf disappeared. . So you’re still on board with getting the brainwashing reversed. I am. Although your husband was no help. So I don’t know if it’s gonna happen. Well, my soon to be ex-husband and it will because we will find a way.

We make a great team. Remember actually, Gabby, I don’t right. I’m, I’m sorry. Four choice of words. What I meant was, Gabby, I think I need to reiterate something because it doesn’t seem to be sinking in. I love Chloe. She’s the woman I want to be with. Whether or not we find Rolf, it’s not gonna change. We’ll see, and actually I was doing something overtime myself trying to find Wolf, and I hit a big old wall at the hospital earlier.

The hospital, you know, Brady banned me from seeing Marlena. Can you believe that? I mean, I only, I was only trying to ask her if she would deprogram you, and I know she’ll say yes, and then we could be together again. What the hell is wrong with you? Excuse me. The woman is dying. And you want her to reprogram my brain so we can reconcile How could you be so heartless?

Yeah. That, that, that, that is what I was gonna ask you. But I, I’m, I’m not gonna push, you’ve asked for space, I’m gonna give you space. Just felt like in that one little moment there, I, uh, sounded like you cared. I do care, but thanks to Kristen, I thought that it was over between us. I know you did Chloe, but I was being blackmailed.

I told, I told you that. I mean, don’t you understand? The last thing in the world I wanted to do was break up with you.

I know that this has been really hard for you too, but. I spent a really long time being in the dark about this, and I was struggling to figure out how the man that claims that he loves me and that I love with all my heart would just abandoned me. And then Stephan came along and he gave, he gave me a chance to just let it all go and try to move on.

And I was starting to feel normal for just a little bit, and then Gabby dropped her bombshell. That’s Stephan was brainwashed. Yeah. So I don’t know. It’s just been, it’s been one thing after the other, and I’m just really confused right now. I don’t know what I’m supposed to think. I don’t know what I’m supposed to feel.

Sure. Okay.

I’m so glad you’re here. Thank you.

Where’s Tripp? Um, he, uh, he had to run out Steph too. They’ll be back in a bit. Stephanie said you left early. She thought you, uh, needed some time. Well, yeah. Well, I wasn’t alone. I went over to the Damaris, went to see Kristen. Jack, what’d you do? I almost killed her.

Your uncle just tried to murder me. Didn’t you see his hands around my You’re fine now. Throat. You’re fine now. What? So you okay with what he did? I’ll tell you what I’m not okay with. How about that? I’m not okay with Steve going to prison. You wanna know why? Because he is the only parent as kids have left.

Thanks to you. Also thanks to you. My grandpa Roman is shattered. My grandma Marlena is in the hospital clinging to life. So given all the damage you’ve done to my family, I really don’t give a damn if someone damages you. Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marlena or the other women. I swear to you.

Look, I will admit I hit the orchid knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum.

But I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead. Yeah, maybe not. That’s what happened.

Sorry. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t, shouldn’t have done that. No, I don’t, don’t apologize. It wasn’t wrong, but it wasn’t right either. I, I don’t know. I’m not making any sense. None of this makes sense. I’m, I’m sorry, I just, I. I, I can’t Brady it just

ej it’s me. You don’t recognize this number because I’m on a burner fund. Stephan’s on the war path that. He thinks you’re going to fire me because of what I did to him, but we both know that’s not going to happen. Right? Unless, of course you want him to find out about your betrayal, how you kept quiet about his brainwashing so you could take over damara.

That’s what I thought. Why are you so angry, Whitney? Because Whitney did is disgust. Oh, I see. It’s the programming. That’s why you’re reacting this way. Or should I say overreacting? I am reacting this way because you impose on a critically ill woman for your own stupid and selfish reason. Stupid and selfish.

Newsflash. This brainwashing is a very serious life-changing issue that isn’t just gonna undo itself. Okay? You need help. Ro is Mia. We may never find him. That leaves marlina. She’s dying, which is why I wanted to move quickly. Oh my God. Damn it Stephan. Don’t you get it? She’s your only. I did this for you.

Do not lie to me and do not lie to yourself. As always, the only person you were thinking about is Gabby Hernandez. You did this for you.

If you said this is what you wanted for you to act like an entitled petulant child the hell I did, how, how do you think this is gonna happen? How do you think we’re gonna access your real feelings? Real feelings? You mean my feelings for you? Right. Because let’s be honest, that’s all you care about. I care about us, Seth, you were my husband.

The love that we shared was more beautiful, more powerful than anything I’ve ever known. God, I thought that we were gonna spend the rest of our lives together, and then our future was ripped apart because a bullet landed in your chest. But now we have a second chance. We have a miracle. We just have to get in touch with how you really feel.

Nothing, nothing should get in the way of making that happen. How could you be so damn selfish? Huh. And cruel. You know, I’m starting to believe that Lee did me a favor when he brainwashed me because he got me away from a bitch like you. Leave her the hell alone.

Hey, how is she famous? Um, there’s no change. Damn. Uh, is, uh, is Grandpa John? Okay. Yeah, I, I, I made him go home to get some sleep, but then, uh, he, he just came back a couple minutes ago. Have you gotten any rest, ? Uh, uh, there was a, uh, a bit of a situation at my place. Situation. What? What do you mean? When I walked in, my uncle Steve had his hands.

Around Kristen’s throat. I, I think he was trying to kill her. Huh? Can’t say I blame him. I sure don’t. Yeah. Kristen is wrong. So many people. I should get one of those number to Spencer, so people just take a number, line up outside the door and get a piece of her.

Harold, I guess it’s his day off. Perfect.

You almost killed Kristen. Don’t worry, son. It’s just an. What do you mean? Well, right before I put my hands around her throat, I made a whole lot of noise hoping that somebody would come in and break it up before things went too far. Well and behold, Johnny Damara walks in when he was taking care of Kristen.

I planted a bug and Johnny kicked me out. Then everything they said after that went to this device. You recorded them? I did. I had to release Kristen due to lack of evidence, but I’m gonna give Ray everything he needs to make sure that witch goes down for murder. Listen to this.

Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marlena or the other women. I swear to.

Look, I will admit I hate the orchid knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum, but I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead. Yeah, maybe not be done. That’s what happened.

He’s that confession. Damn straight is

Honey. Hi Bonnie. Hi, Justin. We were just about to grab dinner. Um, we’d love for you to join us unless you have other plans. No, I, I don’t, um, I’d actually love to join you. Just I’m afraid I won’t be much company. I’m kind of wiped out. Yeah, I’m sure you’ve been working all out lately. Yeah. Just kinda nonstop trying to find that cure from Elena.

Any. No, unfortunately. And without that orchid we can’t do much. But we are gonna keep trying though. Well, we’re all praying for her. Yeah. So am I actually, Justin, um, I’m really glad I ran into you. There’s, um, something I would like to discuss. What’s that?

I wanna divorce Zander, and I was wondering if you could help me.

Zander, are you in there? I really need to talk to you.

Oh, I’m delighted to see you. Look. You sure you only see one of me? Oh, there’s no time for mass right now. Come in the middle of a major crisis. What we thought, what’s not? I just running ask SCO

son’s wet blanket. Husband is already doing his damnest to convince him that I’m a terrible person who can’t be trusted. Well, I mean, you’ve only made this job so much easier for him with the latest stunt you pulled, you don’t need to rub it in, but you’re. That little bitch Wilhelmina would eat this up if the truth came out.

And even worse, I would lose Sunny’s friendship for good.

So, uh, how’d things go with Stephanie?

It’s over, bro. I just lost the best thing that has ever happened to me,

Stephanie. Chad. Hey, are you busy? I mean, if this is not a good time. No, I’m just, just running some errands. Are you okay? Sounds like you’re crying. Yeah. Things aren’t too great over here. Do you think you could come by? Um, I’m at my parents’ place. I just, I could really use a friend. Yeah, I’m on my way,

like sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

After what Zandra did to Bonnie, I’d be more than happy to help you divorce him. In fact, I’ll do a pro bono, hell, I’ll even pay you for the privilege of putting that clown through the ringer. That won’t be necessary Justin, but I do appreciate the offer. Can I say something? Yeah, of course, Bonnie. I, I know it’s none of my business, but, um, I think divorce might not be the best idea.

If you’re worried about me taking the case, it’s not a problem for me. I mean, it’s not a, like I owe my cousin any family loyalty. Lord knows. He didn’t show me any loyalty when he kidnapped you. No, I piss not them.

I know this is gonna sound crazy, but I honestly think you should give Xander a second chance.

I have more boos to be delivered, but the liquor store must be walking here from Scotland. Hey, you don’t happen to have any libation on you, do you, mate? Sorry. I’m afraid not, mate. Damn. Life’s so unfair, isn’t it?

Oh my God.

Are you just absolutely sloshed? Wait, I’ve got no self-control, honey. I’m only on my third ball. Yes, so this will keep me going until my delivery arrives. Zander, what’s going on? You mean beside my entire life? Imploding and my family thinking that I’m discovered the earth and Sarah wanting to divorce me.

Hang on. Sarah wants to divorce you. Indeed, she does, and I’m probably going back to prison. No, you were not. Not if I have something to say about it.

So you’re on board with representing me, right? I’m gonna try my best, but this is not a slam dunk, you know? I mean, it’s gonna take some serious. Legal creativity to get you out of this. Xander is the one who kidnapped son’s stepmom. All I did was help him cover it up afterwards, but that’s still a crime.

Me. I know. I know what it means. It means if I don’t play my cards right, this could all still blow up in my adorable.

Bonnie, I can’t believe that you of all people think that I should work things out with Xander. I mean, he kidnapped you and Su I know I was there and believe you me, I was furious when I found out I was him. And now, now what? Now that I’ve had a chance to process everything. Now that I don’t see clowns everywhere that I look, I realize I’ve been a hypocrite.

Where X’s concerned, what are you talking about? How do you remember what I did to Adrian? It was every bit as terrible as what Sandra did, if not worse. And yet you found it. And your big, beautiful heart to forgive me and give me a second chance and look where we are now. We are happy and I’m thinking. If Sarah can find it in her heart to forgive Xander, maybe they could be happy again too.

Bonnie, there is a big difference between you and Xander. You didn’t cause Adrian’s death. If Xander hadn’t a kidnapped Susan, then she might not have died that horrible way. I mean, even if I can. Get over everything that he did to me. How can I get past that?

Rafe came by yesterday and he offered me a deal that would keep me out of prison entirely. That’s great. Brilliant. Yeah. Only if I throw you under the bus.

So what’d you tell him? He said, I need to speak to a lawyer. And so today Leo asked if Sloan Peterson would represent us. He thinks that he, if we both turn on you, we’d get off SCO free. Why? They like the Sky Hub. Good old Leon.

Zander. I came here today because I wanted to tell you I’m not gonna do it. I’m not gonna cooperate with the police. Come hell or high water are you? Tough. Take the damn deal.

Dammit. I never should have agreed to dress up as that stupid clown, especially enough for the pits that Gwen paid me little late for. Regrets Leo. I still can’t believe that you were able to fool Bonnie Lockhart into thinking that you were to clown the kidnapped her. I mean, there must have been one hell of a body suit, excuse me.

It was my performance that sold it. I tapped into my inner Joaquin Phoenix to bring the menace and the pathos to that role. But instead of an Oscar, I’m gonna earn a trip to the slammer. Where is the justice in this? No. Okay. Come stalking it, Joaquin. All right. You’re gonna give yourself a hearty pack,

Alex, I’m really sorry, but I mean, like I said, I, I think it was important for you to come. Well, the thing is, Sonny, I didn’t even get the chance to come clean because by the time I got there, Stephanie had already pretty much figured it out for herself that I am the reason why she didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to tomorrow.

Gotta cut yourself a break. Like I said, it wasn’t cool what you did, but you didn’t know why Chad was calling. It doesn’t matter. Stephanie hates me. Okay? Cuz she just suffered a major loss. But give her time. I mean, once she’s had a chance to process, solve it and, and once she. S some time to process all of it.

Son, she’s still gonna hate me. She’s still gonna blame me for depriving her of her last moments with her dying mother, and why wouldn’t she? That is exactly what I did.

She told me she never wants to see me again, and I think she meant it with every fiber of her being.

Sorry for making you come back over here. I needed to talk to someone. You were the first person who came to mind. Of course. What’s going on? Is it about your mom? Yeah, it is. It’s about my not getting to see her before she died. It’s about Alex, what he did.

He turned off your phone so you couldn’t get my calls. How did you know? Sonny told me only because he, he knew that Alex was gonna come over here and confess. Yeah. Well, no confession was necessary. I was able to piece things together before he got here. So what happened when you confronted him? He tried to apologize, but Chad, what he did was unforgivable.

Alex, I missed my last chance to see my mom before she died, so Alex and I were done for good.

Look, Steph, you have every reason to be mad as hell at Alex. But in his defense, he didn’t know why I was calling. He just wanted to be alone with you, . I don’t give a damn what he wanted. He had no right to turn off my phone. It was a total violation. I I get it.

I get it That he was already annoyed that I, that, that you and I had spent the day together and then, you know, I intruded on your romantic evening together. On Christmas Eve, so you know, it makes sense that he wouldn’t want me interrupting you guys again, God, but you wouldn’t have been interrupting if you had called about anything.

But my mom, I would’ve told you I was busy, but Alex didn’t trust me to do that, so he took that choice away from me. And so I missed my last chance to say goodbye to my mom before she died. Would’ve meant everything to me, Chad, and to her. And now cause of Alex. It’s too late. It’s too late. I’m sorry, Steph.

Just telling her what? How can I help?

It’s gotta be least 10 below out there kinda dreading going home,

so don’t

stay the night. I mean, if you want to, of course there’s no pressure.

Actually, I.

I can’t stay here.

Sorry. You’re not really being fair here. I mean, Susan’s death was not Sandra’s fault. In the end, he let her go just like he did me. And believe me, I am not condoning what. But I can’t understand the position he was in because I’ve been there too. Stuck doing something you don’t wanna do, but unable to see a way out.

Maybe it’s like a delayed Stockholm syndrome or I know what that is. I saw a documentary and believe me, this is not that, honey. You know what I’m talking about, right? About forgiveness. My wife has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. And while I personally believe that she may be a little too charitable in this case, she may have a point.

Honey, we’re just trying to help you because we knew how much you love Z and how great you guys are together. And what Bonnie’s trying to say is that this whole thing was. Only recently blew up, so maybe you should just take a little more time before you really make the decision to end your marriage.

Forget it, zander, that there’s, there’s no way that I’m going to sell you out to the cops. Nothing you can say is gonna change my mind.

And what do you want in return? Not a thing.

Are you sure? Cause you’ve told me more than once that I owe you one since I’m probably going back to prison. If there is something that you want from me, now’s the time to collect.

So let’s get down to business. How soon can you get me a deal to testify against Xander? Anonymously of. You do realize whenever you say anonymously, it means that nobody would know my identity. Yes, I know what the word anonymous means. It’s just not that simple, I’m afraid. You see, Zander has the legal right to know who his accuser is.

I mean, even though you can be anonymous to the public, I mean, Xander has to know who’s testifying against him. Excuse me. Who came up with that idiotic rule? It’s the sixth Amendment. Besides, his lawyers are gonna want the chance to cross-examine. I mean, they’re gonna wanna debunk your testimony. What if I were a veil, a really thick one so nobody could see my features and I could change my voice?

You really think that’s gonna work? I think Xander’s gonna know exactly who you are. Okay. So even if Xander has to know, is there any way to prevent him from telling anybody else, like isn’t there some sort of court rule about witness confidentiality? There is nothing that can stop Xander from telling anyone who will listen that you are the one that turned on him.

So then Sonny would still know what I did. But at least you won’t be in present. Not good enough. Ali McBeal. I do not. I repeat. I do not want Sunny finding out the truth.

Well, hey. Hi. Hey. Oh, I’m so glad to see you. I saw your bags at the house and I figured you must have come here. Have you been able to see your grandma Marlene again? No, not yet. They’re only letting in two people at a time, but hopefully I’ll be able to get in soon. I’m so sorry again about Okay, thanks.

Have you been able to spend any time with the rest of your family? Um, yeah, they’re in the chapel praying. I just came from dropping off Julie’s. Okay. Well, do you wanna go back and join them? Actually, uh, I’m, I’m glad we have a moment alone because son, there’s something I need to tell you about Leo.

So you’re siding against me too, huh? Justin? Look, I think Zand. He is a very troubled man who has only a nodding acquaintance with the truth most of the time anyway. But I also know that he has on occasion made you very happy. So why don’t you just let the dust settle a bit? There’s no need to file for divorce right away.

Maybe you guys could try a little doubles. My sessions with Marlene have done wonders for my PTs. D I can finally go back to McDonald’s without freaking out

I dunno. I mean, Xander has lied to me and betrayed me so many times over the years. How can I believe that he will never do it again? And even if I can find a way to trust him, isn’t it all a moot point if he ends up in prison? You’re right. I do want something from you. I’m my son.

I want you. To stop being so bloody defeatist and pull yourself together, cook for goodness sake, what’s the point? Sarah’s divorcing me. I’m heading back to this. Oh, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Stop your bloody whining. Like everything’s so hopeless. I’m not gonna let you just roll over and give up. You’re gonna fight for your marriage, and you’re gonna fight for your freedom.

How? Well, first of all, we’re gonna sober you up, right? And then we’re gonna come up with a game plan. That’s enough. Come on then. You love. Well we got, well you stink now with booze and defeat, so just go in there. We’re gonna shower both. Come off. Come on. I still think you should go for the plea deal. If you help trash land this big fish, you, my little gpi will be off the hook.

I’d rather keep my mouth shut and take my chances. At least this way. Son won’t know what I did. Are you kidding me? You would rather risk. Then have your friend know you did something shady, . I mean, you really have a bad for him. . What? That is ridiculous. He’s not even my type. Okay. Enough with the side eye.

It’s like your eyes are bearing a hole into my psyche. Okay, fine. He’s He’s handsome. He’s funny, he’s kind. He’s completely wonderful. He’s totally my type. Oh my God. I’m completely crushing on him again. Leo knew that Xander was the one who kidnapped Susan and Bonnie. Mm-hmm. . Andy helped cover it up. Yeah.

He put on a body suit and pretended to be the kidnapper to get Xander off the hook. No, but Sarah was so sure that Gwen was the one guy in all of it because she paid Leo to do it. I can’t believe this. You’re sure you didn’t misunderstand all? I’m sure he laid out the whole plan for his attorney. He’s hoping to cut some kind of plea deal and he’s desperate to keep you from finding out.

Thank God that’s sneaky son, a bitch.

I’ve been denying it to myself. But Sunny does make me go weaken the knees. It’s the white tank tops. Not to mention the adorable face, the width, the charm, the kindness. Great head of hair. Well, I think it’s obvious that you have great appreciation for this guy’s, many attributes, but unless I’m missing something, I mean, isn’t he married?

Yes, but they’ve hit a rough patch all on their own, by the way. Nothing to do with me and they live in separate cities. Wouldn’t take much for that marriage to. And you think that if that happens, that Sonny’s just gonna turn to you? I can hope, can’t I? Uh, we were married once before. Our chemistry is still off the charts.

But even if that rosy little fantasy is not to be, I still wanna be his friend. I wanna keep Sonny in my life any way I can.

I, is it okay if I leave you here for a little? Yeah, of course. I’ll, I’ll be fine. Okay, son. Um, tell Leo that Wilhelmina says hello. Also good ridin. Go to hell and screw you. I’ll pass it along.

What’s with the Solo Act? Keri Aus. Where’s your little girlfriend who don’t play Coy? I heard you and Stephanie Johnson were practically attached at the hip. In all truth, I was a little offended that you never sent me a thank you. And why? Sharon, thank you. Only I or am I not? The reason that the two of you ended up together, I figure Ms.

Johnson was so grateful that you sold that file for me. She just decided she had to give you the time of day. Hmm. You know what? You’re not that far off. I figured as much, but in spite of that, You’re unintentionally getting Ms. Johnson, and give me the time of day as you put it. That’s over now. And that to state the obvious is because I am a total jerk, egotistical, selfish, dishonest, misogynistic, arrogant.

To put it nice and short, I screwed.

My world famous spaghetti and meat, the molds. Wow. Is this an old Dara family recipe? Um, no actually. Uh, taught me how to make this one.

Chad, I’m, I didn’t get a chance to say this before, but I’m, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know Kate was like a mother to you. Yeah, she was. Um, I think she actually probably understood me more than my own parents did. I mean, she was, She was hard as hell on me, but, uh, but she . She uh, she always looked at my spirit

well, I’d like to propose a toast to Kate. Gone but not forgotten.

Then feeling better. Oh, I mean, yeah, I feel a bit, a little bit more alert, but now I’m soaking wet and miserable, so thanks very much. All right. Well, good thing is, is you can change out of wet clothes. We’ve put on some dry ones, I think. Yeah, you should probably get changed too. Okay. Sarah left this behind.

Yes, as I said, that’s um, not really to my taste. Why about this? Is this more to your taste? Oh, yes, that is. Thank you. Much better.

Maybe they’ll end a hat. What does Sloane know about my skills at disguise?

Hey, I didn’t know you were home. Just got back. Well, fyi, your hub’s in town. He stopped by earlier. Oh, I know. I just ran into him at the hospital. Oh, well good. Since you’re here, you wanna have some dinner? I was about to have cook whip something up. There’s no need. Not gonna be here for long. Neither are you.

You, you need a pack of things in gal Do What? What’s going on? Oh wait. It was Wilhelmina, wasn’t it? She was going on and on again about what a menace I am. What a pathetic loser. And told you to throw me out. She doesn’t want me anywhere near you.

No, I don’t want you anywhere near me. Why Jackson? What’s going on? I know what you did. I know you were involved in Bonnie’s kidnapping.

Thank you. For dinner and for the company. It was just what I. . Good.

You know what we need now? Dessert. I know a place. I’m gonna go get somewhere. No, no. You will go nowhere. I’m sure we have something sweet hiding in here.

Oh my God. What is it? It’s one of my mom’s apple pies. She left a note on it

for Steph, made this for you since you missed out on Christmas. Love.

I knew it’s monogamy equals monotony as you used to always say. So tell me how long was it before you got bored and strayed? That is not what happened. Stephanie’s mom died. So she founded you because her mom died? No, she dumped me because she didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to her. Which was entirely my fault.

How so?

I was get just getting sick and tired of Chad Damara hanging around. And the night that Stephanie’s mom died, Stephanie and I were together. She went into the bathroom, the phone kept bringing, it was Chad again. So I took the phone and I turned it off. The thing is, Chad was calling to tell her that her mom was dying.

Oh wow. You really, I did screw up. Thank you for confirming that.

Do you think there’s any chance that I could fix this? No, not a chance. When my mom died, I, I would’ve given anything to have had one last chance to say goodbye to her. And if some guy got in the way of me doing that, I mean, I’d hate him for the rest of my life.

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Son, you’ve got this all wrong. Knock it off. Leo will overheard you talking to Sloan and he told me everything. Oh, that nosy little twerp. Was he stalking you? How could you, how could you do this to me? How could you hurt my family like this after everything I’ve done for you? I mean, I, I, I helped you look for a job.

I, I I put a roof over your head. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I, I needed the money. I, at the time, it seemed like a harmless prank. A harmless prank. Bonnie was scared to death. She’d already been kidnapped once. And then, then you Alexander her, kidnapped her again? No, no, no. Technically I had nothing to do with the kidnapping.

Technically, you know what? Technically you’re guilty as hell. You stayed in this house, you knew what Sandra did, and you said nothing. You saw how traumatized body was. You saw how concerned my dad was, and still you lived under this roof and you said nothing. Okay? Okay. I screwed up. I’m sorry. I know that I messed up.

I deeply regret it. And Sonny, please, please, if you could just be that incredibly understanding and kind person that you are and gimme another chance, please. You are the only true friend I have ever had. The only person who has ever believed in me, who has seen the good. I promise. I promise you I will do better.

I will. I will make amends. I will grovel to everyone I have hurt, especially you. Please, sunny, if you could just find it in that. Enormous heart of yours to, to, to forgive me. No. Please. No, I’m not making that mistake again. Leo, I vouched for you. I got in a huge fight with my husband because I insisted that you would change that.

You were like this better person, . I I am. I’m becoming a better person. I’m doing that for you. No. Oh my God. No. Will was right. You’re still just a despicable, selfish con artist, and that’s what you’ll always be, son. No, don’t say that.

Do you wanna know what the craziest part is?

I actually started to think that you wanna have a friend.

We were we. We are. No, we’re not friends. Leah, you are not my friend. You are nothing to me.

Now get out of this house before I have you thrown up.

I’d feel so badly for Sarah. I mean, she may be all fussed and fury when it comes to Xander, but I could tell underneath she still loves him. So, oh, Justin, there may still be hope for them, yet you are incredible. You know that No, of course I am . Not seriously. What have I done? Xander terrorized you. Okay? He made you so afraid that you didn’t wanna leave the house.

Now here you are sticking up for him, rooting for him to save his marriage. I’ve been where he’s been and I tell you, I feel for the guy. Hi. Tonight, Bonnie, my Love. You have once again proven to me that you are one of the best people I know and I’m so lucky to have you. Oh my God. Back at you babe. Back at you.

Sorry. Sorry, I thought you’d be done dressing by now. God, these Travis holes keep moving about. Oh, finally, it’s a liquor store. No. Oh. If no, you’ve had too much to drink, I’m just gonna tell him to get lost.

What the hell is this?

This pie is amazing. I know, right? I know. When your mom made it is just, it makes it that much more. I’m very grateful that I get to. Share this with you.

I’m just glad I found it. She would’ve been very disappointed if it had gone a waste.

And Chad, thank you for coming over. I don’t know if I could have gotten through this night without you. Anytime.

You really taking this hard, aren’t you? No. So what? The only woman I ever had feelings for, never wants to see me again. No big deal. Stupid question. Yeah, very stupid question. How does somebody not take it hard when you feel like your life is over? When, when, when you don’t know how you’re gonna get through the rest of the day?

Alex, honey, you made the fatal mistake of getting emotionally involved. See, this is why no strings attached is always the way to go. But for what it’s worth, I’m sorry. Nothing is worse than a broken heart or so they say.

As soon as Leo’s gone, I’ll meet you back at the hospital. Okay. Take your time. Getting him out of our lives is the top priority. Yeah, you were right about him. I sh I should have listened to you. No, I’m just sorry that he hurts you again.

I have to go. Okay. I, I love you. I love you too.

Are you gonna tell the police about what I did?

I don’t know. I haven’t decided.

Son, before I go, there’s one thing I want you to know.

I really did care about you. Your friendship meant means everything to me. Come on. You were just playing me the entire time. I wasn’t. The bond we had, it was real. It was sweet and special and great and I am certain that deep down, you know that’s true.

I am so very sorry, Jackson,

for everything.

And you coming here was a huge mistake. Sarah, this is not what you think. She’s right. Sarah, you gotta, you gotta let me

disgust me, Sarah, wait.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


, Guinevere, tell me you’ve come to your census. If you mean, am I going to be Trey Zer by cooperating with the Salem pd, my answer is still no. I will not help send him to prison. Better him than us. Look, I know how much you care about that big, sexy Scottish lug, but you know my motto. Always look out for number one.

You sure as hell abide by that? Don’t you

sound asleep. Finally. Poor little guy. He’s so rounded. I think that’s because he senses that you are and it affects him.

Ali, I’m sorry for everything you’re going through. I keep looking at pictures of them. Grandma Kate holding Henry when he was a little baby and I have this selfie of me and Kayla and she’s just smiling her beautiful smile, . I just can’t believe that they’re gone, you know? And now I have to worry about my grandma, Marlena.

I can’t lose her. I can’t lose her too. I just can’t found me. I wish I could take the pain away.

I’m sorry. Just having you by my side. I’m so grateful always, but especially now, I’m so grateful.

Chad, Stephanie shouldn’t blame herself for not being there when Kayla died. It wasn’t her fault. I tried telling her that, but she won’t stop beating herself up for turning off her phone about that. Um, she didn’t. What do you mean she didn’t, Stephanie wasn’t the one who turned off her phone.

Tell me the truth. Are you the reason I didn’t get to say goodbye to my mother,

like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Uh, yes. Thank you so much for the time and consideration and I look forward to speaking with you soon. Bye-bye.

Matt, you are getting weird by the minute, Wilhelmina, you’re back. I thought you had returned to the land of direct to streaming movie making and I thought Sunny would’ve seen through your Reform Griffin Act. No. Guests we’re both wrong. I hope you’re not upset with Sonny for letting me crash here a little while longer upset.

I mean, just because I can’t stand the side of you. And I think Sonny’s being incredibly naive to give you the benefit of the doubt, much less a place to stay. Or maybe he’s just a big hearted, generous and forgiving person who is helping a friend in need. You don’t have to explain my husband’s motivations to me.

I know he is a good guy. Unfortunately, that also makes him an easy target for people like you. You know, um, guys who always look out for number one. Oh, that I was finishing up a job interview when you walked in. The employee’s HR rep is. Recruiting for a position on a rather aggressive sales team, and I wanted to be sure I had the killer instinct, a job interview.

You really expect me to believe that that’s what it was. Hmm. Well, I don’t have time for this. I just came by to drop off my luggage. If you see Sunny, please tell ’em I’m at the hospital visiting my grandmother. Oh. I’ll be sure to give him the message verbatim.

I think you would be nice. You rude little queen.

You can’t give up hope. Now your grandmother is strong and brave and she’s battled Satan twice and lived to tell the toe Grandma, Caton and Kayla, they were strong and brave too, and now they’re gone. I have to go to the hospital. Okay. I need to see my grandma Marlena. Okay, then go. Well, I, I have to stay here and watch Little Henry, but I wish I could go with you.

Thank you. I love you.

Call me if there’s any change. I will.

Did you forget your key? Hello? But you forgot to ask. He was at the door.

I don’t get it. How can you be so sure that Stephanie didn’t turn off her own phone? Just trust me on this all sunny. You’re supposed to be best friends. What are you not telling me?

Okay, fine. I’m, I’m sure Stephanie didn’t turn off her phone.

My brother did.

Chad called me multiple times. He left messages about my mom being gravely ill that I didn’t get, and I don’t remember turning my phone off. So the only possible explanation is that you did. So I’ll ask you. Alex, the night my mother died. Did you turn off my phone?

Yes, Steph, I did.

Oh, will. Oh my God. Will. Hi. I’m so happy that you’re here. When did you get in? Um, playing planning about an hour ago. Have you talked to mom? Yeah. Um, she says she’s doing everything she possibly can to get here. Okay, good. Any update on Grandma Marlene’s condition? Um, The doctors are doing everything they can, but it’s not looking great.

Um, well I want to see her. Yeah, me too. But, um, grandpa John and Uncle Eric are in there right now and then, and, um, they’re restricting our visitors, so we’re gonna have to wait out here. Just wait out here and pray. Yeah.

I’m really glad that you’re here. Now we can wait and pray together.

I am sorry. I had to hang up so abruptly before Will Forton showed up for a surprise visit to drop off his luggage and treat me like dirt. He didn’t overhear your conversation, did he? Well part of it, Matt, no girl, relax. He only overheard the part where I told you that my motto is to look out for numero uno.

But I convinced him the call was a job interview. Covered my tracks. Very cleverly as always. As always as some of the time, yes. Well, I should bloody well, hope so. Oh, I know. So no way that nosy aging twink will find out I had anything to do with Xander’s coverup. Yes. Because if he did, I know, I know. He would go running to Sunny so fast, I would lose the only true friend I’ve ever.

Did you actually just say that aside from you, my darling, gw, aside from you,

I don’t get it. Why would Alex turn off Stephanie’s phone? I guess he didn’t want to be interrupted. I see. So your brother admitted to you that he turned off Stephanie’s phone without her knowledge because he didn’t want someone to interrupt their alone time. Not, not someone.

I think you better explain yourself and fast. It happened when he went to the bathroom to change. The phone started ringing. I looked the screen and it was Chad calling again. And so instead of telling me that he called you, decided to turn off my phone. Steph, I didn’t know why he was calling. Why does it matter, Alex?

It was none of your damn business. I know that and that’s why I’m so sorry. Yeah. Well, sorry. Doesn’t cut it. How dare you police my phone calls Steph. I only did it because. We had been wanting to be alone for a long time and we had a beautiful, fun night, and then Chad starts calling and I figured that it was probably about work again, or the kids and the, the guy just interrupted us at Christmas time and I figured, you know what?

No matter what this call is right now, I assumed incorrectly that it would be okay for it to wait this time. That wasn’t your decision to make. But because you had the audacity, the gall, to make it. Anyway, I didn’t find out my mom was dying until it was too late to say goodbye to her. You robbed me of that, and I will never forgive you for it.

Oh hell. Look, this is a bad time. Okay. I’m dealing with a family crisis right now. You mean like the crisis that you put my family in when you seduced my father and killed my mother? Okay. I realize that it is pointless for me to keep trying to explain this to you, but your mother’s death was an accident.

I feel horrible for what happened to her and to your father and to you for that matter. Yeah. You’re. It is pointless to, uh, keep telling me that, look, Sloan, the courts in the UK declined to pursue extradition or press charges. So don’t you think it’s time that we both get on with our lives? It really is that easy for you, isn’t it?

You can just destroy my family’s life and go right back into baking those overpriced pastries and making out with your little girlfriend. Well, that’s over. So I hope you enjoyed it while it lasted. See, I made a promise to make you pay for what you did to my family, and I’m gonna do exactly that.

So, how was the flight? Um, I mean, terrible. I, I couldn’t sleep or eat cause I was worried I wouldn’t get here. Yeah, well you did. Thank God Grandma Melina’s hanging on. But where’s Sunny? I don’t know. Actually he wasn’t in the house. Um, but. Unfortunately, his house guest from Hell was there to grieve me. Why don’t we get back to what we were discussing before, will Debe so rudely interrupted us?

Ah Mattie, if you have come over here yet again to try to convince me to Rat Alexander, you have wasted a trip. But QUni, the cops already know you helped him by coming up with that fake company he claimed to be working for. Yes, but they don’t have a shred of proof linking me to any crimes. Not yet. But they will not stop digging until they find something that leads them right to.

Oh, I see what this is. Okay. You are not worried about me going down for helping Zander. You are just trying to save your own hide. Sweetie. I don’t want either of our gorgeous hides being skinned alive for the likes of Zander Cook. He kidnapped those two women, not us. We don’t know that the police can prove any of it, do we?

Um, hello? They already know that his accomplice was wearing a muscled up bodysuit one that fits me perfectly. Once they figure that out, my goose is cooked. No, I’m sorry, Massie. I just, I can’t tie my back on Zand. So then you are prepared for your father to turn his back on you. That won’t happen. I contrary, GU, when Jack finds out that you help Xander, he will disown you maybe permanently.

This time

you have worked so hard to regain his trust. You’re living in his wife’s house, you’re working for their newspaper. All of that goes away. If Jack and Jennifer find out that you weren’t accomplice to that Scottish scoundrel with the bo that won’t quit, who lacks an ounce of moral fiber, unlike you, you mean?

Um, my body is pretty Okay. Thank you very much. I’m talking about moral fiber. Okay, fine. I will not throw stones at poor Xander unless you think me a hypocrite. But I urge you, will you at least agree to, to, to meeting with a lawyer so we can figure out what our options. Fine. Do you have anyone specific in mind?

As a matter of fact, I do. Wait, wait. No. So stop. Please stop. Please relax. What did you think? I had a weapon. I’m not the one here with homicidal tendencies. Normally I’d have a process server deliver this, but I just couldn’t help. I wanted the satisfaction of seeing the look on your face.

You’re suing me for wrongful death. And naming Paulina Price, aka your mom as the co-defendant for her role in helping you cover up the crime of my mother’s murder. Your mother’s death was an accident. Do you know how tired I am appearing? You say that, just, just lie. You keep repeating over and over again making it sound like you are the victim here.

I may not see my day in criminal court, but I can still make you bitches pay and when I, when I’m done with this civil court. How you can bet your money that the only thing left of Paulina price’s fortune will be the crumbs from that pathetic little bakery of yours.

So Alex turned off Stephanie’s phone because he was afraid I was going to interrupt their romantic evening together. Yes. And it was not a cool thing of him to do. And, and in fact it was. selfish thing to do, but he had no idea. You were calling about Kayla. Yeah. But so your brother can’t handle my friendship with Stephanie, so she doesn’t get to see her mom before she died.

Yeah. And he feels terrible about, he should feel terrible about it. She’s been torturing herself because she didn’t get to say goodbye to her mother before she died if she’s in agony, because she could have been there and she wasn’t. Chad, like I said, because your brother was afraid I was gonna interrupt his.

Conquest. He didn’t know what you were calling about. I don’t care. It wasn’t his place to turn off her phone and now I have to be the one to break her heart. Chad, you don’t have to do that. Why? Gimme one reason not to, because Alex is already telling Stephanie himself. Steph, instead of I had any idea why Chad was calling.

It doesn’t matter why he was calling. You had no right to turn off my phone. I know that. I know that, and I, I just, I just, I wanted to be alone with you. Yeah. Well, you got your wish. So instead of being with my mother while she was dying, instead of being able to tell her that I loved her. You and I were having sex.

Do you have any idea how disgusted that makes me feel?

Yeah, I do and I get why it would, and that is why I would do anything to go back in time and change what I did, Steph, but you can’t.

And now my mother is gone.

And so are any feelings that I had for you. I never wanna see you again.

Leo Stark living under the same roof as your husband, , he owns. God, that must be driving you crazy. Yeah. You have no idea. He’s like a, he’s, he’s a parasite that leeched onto Sunny’s goodwill. Mm-hmm. , you actually convinced him that he’s a, he’s a changed person. I take it. You don’t believe that? No, not for a second.

People like Leo don’t change. They just become more adept at being devious and figuring out ways to prey on their victims. Unfortunately, I think you’re right and I’m surprised Sonny of all people wants anything to do with him after what he put the both of you. Me too, but a, a again, it, that’s in his nature.

You know, he prides himself on being forgiving and, and giving people second chances. Mm-hmm. , well, I guess you have to admire him for that, right? That he sees the good in everyone. Uh, I mean, I, I would normally, um, if the person in question was worthy of forgiveness of second chances, but I mean, at this point it’s just gullible.

There is no good in. He does not deserve Sonny’s forgiveness, and he sure as hell doesn’t deserve his friendship.

Let me guess, you had to convince your brother to, uh, to come clean. I may have. Strongly suggested it. Sure. But, but then he, he agreed. Wow. Very big of him. He’s not a bad guy, Chad. He messed up and he wants to make amends. You know, the, uh, you know the expression, timing is everything. Your brother should have grown a conscience before he took it upon himself to shut off her phone without her knowledge, because of his own selfish reasons before he robbed Stephanie of being able to say goodbye to her dying mother.

Why are you still here? I said, I never wanted to see you again.

Steph. Come on. You don’t, you don’t mean that. Don’t tell me what I mean. See, this has been the problem with you from day one. You only hear what you want to, Alex. It’s not true. Steph, what you talking about? I, I’m coming here admitting to you that I made a mistake. No, no, no. You don’t get to trivialize this to make it sound like it was some innocent mistake.

You purposely turned off my phone because you’re envious of my friendship with Chad. Your pathetic insecurities are the reason why I couldn’t be with my mother when she needed me the most,

and you know, the worst part, if I hadn’t figured it. You are never even going to tell me. Who are you?

There she is. Salem’s Top Legal Eagle, Sloan, Peterson, Esquire. Save it Stark. I had a good mind to not show up here when you called, considering you don’t like to pay your legal bills in a timely manner. Oh, please. You got your money and then some and then. Really? Do you not recall that? When I opened that safe in Paulina Price’s office, you stole that file with dirt on my ex-boss and her daughter.

Correction. I stole it back, which you wouldn’t have had an opportunity to do if it weren’t for me, so you’re welcome. Well, since the file was mine in the first place, the only thing I’m gonna thank you for as being careless enough to not catch me in the. and speaking of damaging information on the disgraced almost governor and her homicidal child, I still don’t understand why Ms.

Recheck here wouldn’t publish it in her daddy’s dying newspaper. I had my reasons. Oh, don’t you know, you missed out in the scoop of the decade. Oh. As I’ve been led to believe any charges here and abroad against Paul enter price and Chanel du Priya not being pursued. So that means that your scoop of a decade is just a nothing burger wrong, just because they managed skirt justice doesn’t make their innocent.

Anyway, I’m growing bored of this conversation. Why am I here? Star, we need legal advice, but before we talk, we need to make sure that this is going to remain strictly confidential. Another crime, Ms. Risk check wants to sweep under the rug. Why am I not surprised? Do we have attorney client privilege or not?

That kind of confidentiality is gonna require a, uh, retainer right now. No deferments. What are you waiting for? Gwenny? The woman,

mama. Oh, thank God you’re here. Well, I rush right over as soon as I got your message. Chanel baby. What? What’s wrong? What’s wrong? Is it Marlena? No. No. Dr. Evans is still hanging on. Oh, well that’s good. That’s good news. I’m, I’ve been praying for her. And so has your aunt Tammy. Well, if it isn’t about Allie’s, grandmother, then what’s the matter?

Sloane Peterson was just here. Sloane Peterson. What the hell is she want? Oh, did she hurt you? Cuz if he did, I swear. God, no, no, no. She didn’t hurt me. At least not yet. What? What are you talking about? This, the woman is still very much hell bent on hurting us both.

Okay. Lemme see if I have this straight Xandra cook, kidnapped Egypt, Dara’s mother, and you helped cover it up and then she roped you in. The police already know you were involved and now you’re worried it’s only a matter of time before you are implicated as well. That’s the gist of it. So what are our options?

Options? So aiding and abetting, kidnapping. Falsifying evidence. Yeah. You think you have options? , well, sorry, kids. I mean you guys are pretty much.

Julie. Oh, Halle. Oh, well, my darlings. Hey, please tell me what, what’s Marla’s condition now? She is still in the icu, but from what we hear, it’s it not looking great. Oh, no. Oh, I’m so sorry.

Um, and Kate and Kayla too. I’m so sorry. That’s okay. Um, so what is, uh, what’s all this? I went to Julie’s place and had some sandwiches made up. The, those of of prayer visioning going on. Eric is leading it in the chapel. It’s, it’s for family and friends and, and Doug is actually already there. Oh no. God, what is it?

I forgot my rosary.

I’m not proud of what my brother did. Then why do you keep making excuses for him? I’m not making excuses. It sounds like you are. I know my. . All right. He might be arrogant and a little full of himself, but he’s got a really good heart. Mm-hmm. He knows that he messed up and he, he’s gonna do whatever it takes to, to what?

To, to what? Son. Make it up to Stephanie. How do you make up to someone that you kept from saying their final goodbye to someone they loved, not just someone they loved their mother. You can make that up, son. You’re right. And even if Alex was stupid enough to try, I doubt he will ever get the chance.

I know you have no reason to trust me right now, but I came here. To tell you the truth myself, quite frankly, because I am riddled with guilt and I have never regretted anything more in my life. Steph, so what you want me to feel? Sorry for you. I’m just doing my best to be honest. I came here today on my own accord to not only tell you the truth, but to tell you that I am sorry for what I did and I’m sorry about your mom.

And if you don’t believe me, you can ask my brother. I don’t need to ask Sonny anything. I know all I’ll ever need to know about the kind of man you are.

Steph, I am begging you. I am begging you. Look, look, look at me. Look at me. I know you were upset with me. And I know you are hurt. You are grieving, but please do not throw away what we had. What? I didn’t Throw it away. Alex, you did. When you invaded my privacy, when you disrespected and lied to me, and like I said, I am gonna be regretting that until the day I die.

I just, I wanted us to have a, a romantic, beautiful evening alone together. And instead I made this this stupid thoughtless mistake in which I have learned from, and I swear to God’s you, I swear to God’s you. I will never, I will never do anything like that again in what that’s supposed to make me feel better.

What the hell do I care that you learned from it? I will never have another chance to say goodbye to my mother. Do you not get that? I get that, Steph. I get that. But I know that we can get past this if you allow it. If you allow me to do this for you, if you allow me to make this up to you, please. There is nothing you can.

Every time I look at you, all I see is my mother lying in that hospital room. Cold,


You know what your problem is, son? No, but I’m guessing you’re about to tell me. Yeah, I am because I’m your best friend and if your best friend can’t give it to you straight, then who? All right. Done in life, man. The problem is you spend too much time seeing the best in people. This again, is that a bad trait?

You know what? Call me naive, but I, I happen to think that’s a great attribute. In fact, my mother, God rest her soul always encouraged me and my brothers to do just that. Yeah. But there has to be exceptions. Some people are irredeemable. No, but I, I happen to disagree. I mean, do do you really think it’s more honorable to believe that deep down everyone is devious and, and and cruel and that even if they say they’re gonna change, you shouldn’t believe them?

I mean, is that really the kind of cynicism that you subscribe to? No, I don’t, I don’t think it is more honorable to mistrust everyone. I think it is sure as hell more self-protective. Take Leo for example. Leo is gonna cause you problems. Maybe not now, but in the near distant future, he is gonna let you down because that is who he is and that is what he does.

Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. There has to be something you can do. I mean, this is small potatoes compared to getting me off on a murder rep. A murder that you didn’t commit. This is very d. The two of you actually did help cook in committing these crimes, and if anyone can get us off, it’s you. Look, I know we’ve only worked together once before, but I have to say you are quite the impressive lady litigator better than Annalise’s Keating and Ally McNeil combined.

Okay? Those are TV lawyers based on real people. I think maybe one day they’ll name a TV show after you better call Sloan. It’s got a nice ring to it, right? Qu, okay. Look, as much as I appreciate the flattery, it’s a pipe dream as much as getting the two of you out of this very dicey situation, UNS. Look, my best advice would be, let me see if I can cut a deal or you will testify against Cook before a grand jury.

See, I told you we should turn on him. Mattie will have you over this. She doesn’t wanna hang Xander out to dry. She’s in love with him. Fancies herself, a Bonita who’s Clyde. Have you seen the way that story ends? Oh heaven’s sake. I do not fancy myself as anything but Zander’s friend. And for the last time, it doesn’t matter what either of you do or say, I am not selling Xander out.

So if, if, if there’s nothing more, I’m going, you can show yourselves out.

What’s that? They say you can lead a criminal conspirator to a potential plea deal, but you can’t make them take the deal. That’s it. I’m out too.

I have a proposition for you.

I was just rushing. So to get here for the prayer vi, I, I forgot to pack the rosary. Where did you leave it? Oh, it’s on, it’s on the top of my dresser in my bedroom. Wow. I’ll go get in. Oh, no darling. I can’t ask that of you. You need to be here for your grandma. No, I was actually just telling Will that they’re restricting Grandma Marlene’s visitors right now.

Wh which means I, I can’t even see her right now anyway, so I, I’ll, I’ll go to your house and grab the rosary. You really don’t mind. Not at all. Not at all. I’ll, I’ll. Soon. Cute. Thank you darling.

Oh, Allie, I know how much you love your grandmother, Marlena. I know how hard this is for you. It’s your strong lady, just like Marlena, just like your mother for that matter. You’ll get through this, sweetheart. Yeah, I have to. I need to be strong for my son. Henry needs me to be. Yes. He needs you. And when our children need us, all the people we love, he need us.

That’s what we’re put on earth for darling. And that’s what keeps us strong. Yeah, it is. And thank God for it. Yes, you. Oh, yes.

I’ll really hit the spot. Good. Let me guess. Is that the first time you’ve eaten today? I had a banana for breakfast. Well, half a banana. I split it with Henry and um, a bite of cookie from the venue machine. Ah-huh Alice, Caroline, I know you’re worried about your grand. But you’ve got to take care of yourself.

You sound like Chanel right now. This whole week she’s been trying to get me to eat more and sleep more. How are things going with you too? Chanel’s been amazing through all of this. I mean, she’s really been my rock, even though she’s been also dealing with her own family drama. I thought things were better for Paulina and Chanel after those awful murder charges were dropped.

Well, they have been. I am just worried that Sloan Peterson is going to continue to cause trouble. That woman is bound and determined to get revenge,

so she’s suing us in civil court. Two. Huh? Little, little heifer. She doesn’t know when to quit. This is bad mom. She isn’t going to stop until we have nothing left. Oh, no, no. Calm down. Calm down. Now it’s not the end of the world. I thought you’d be more upset. Yeah, I am. I am. I’m furious. But I step there. She come over here and try to threaten my daughter.

No, I meant about the lawsuit. Oh, well honey, you know. Well, wouldn’t you have as much money as I do? Frivolous lawsuits, they come with the territory, but my attorneys, they will make myths. Meet the Sloan Peterson. It’s just you. Wait, you have another proposition? I’m listening. What if we. Leave Gwen out of the plea deal.

I could testify against Sandra alone. I’ll say he was the one who hired me to wear the padded clown suit. Knock Gwen. But that’s a boldfaced lie. You have a problem with that? Not necessarily. Good. The only thing is I need to testify anonymously. Oh, you don’t want your little bestie finding out that you drop the dime on Cook.

I’m pretty sure she’ll find out. I’m not worried about Gwen. I am constantly saving her from herself. It’s this thing we do. And sure she’ll be pissed at first, but at least we’ll both be free. Okay. So if you’re not worried about Glen finding out, then what’s the point of having an anonymous testimony because of Sonny, Alex’s brother, or what does he have to do with this?

He’s my friend. He believed in me when nobody else would. Sonny thinks I’ve changed. I can’t have him knowing I was involved in something like this.

Okay, so, so is, is that how you see me? I’m just a pathetic tool. Stumbling around with a, with a, a take advantage of me. Shout out, you know, that’s not what I meant. I just meant you, you know, you, you, you’re too trusting, son. Well, look, I choose to give people like Leo and Alex, the benefit of the doubt, because we could all use a little redemption from time to time.

You know, even me, even you. Just about everyone on this planet. Sure. Yeah. Redemption once in a while is something that we all need, but in this case, what Alex did, he deprived your cousin of Alaska by to her mother. I doubt Stephanie’s gonna be as forgiving as you are.

I am sorry for robbing. Of your last moments with your mom,

but I will spend the rest of my life trying to make up for it. If you let me, you can spend two lifetimes, three lifetimes. Hell, you can spend eternity trying to make it up to me. Nothing you ever say or do will give me back what you took from me, Steph. No, I’m done. I want you to leave Steph. The least you can do is respect my wishes.

Go, Stephanie, please. Just no, Alex now.

Sarah Honey. Hi Bonnie. Hi Justin. We were just about to grab dinner. Um, we’d love for you to join us unless you have other plants. No, I, I don’t, um, I’d actually love to join you. Just, I’m afraid I won’t be much company. I’m kind of wiped out. Oh yeah. I’m sure you’ve been working all out lately. Yeah. Just kinda nonstop trying to find that cure from Elena.

Any luck? No, unfortunately. And without that orchid we can’t do much. But we are gonna keep trying though. Well, we’re all praying for her. Yeah. It’s all my, actually Justin, um, I’m really glad I ran into you. There’s, um, something I would like to discuss. What’s that?

I wanna divorce and I was wondering if you could help me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


know what, this, this menu’s getting a little dull. So, you know, maybe we could use something to, uh, spice it up. You know, maybe, uh, fucking chicken wrap gumbo. You know, you always had such a good sense about what the customer would like. So what do you think

Lucas Rex?

It’s good to see you.

Hold on just a second.

Jen. Hi. I’m sorry for showing up without calling. I just wanted to see how you were doing. I’m, uh, doing, um,

honestly, I don’t, I don’t really know how to answer that,

of course.

Now losing someone you love so suddenly you understand all too well. I know that.

Is there anything I can do to help? No, but I appreciate you asking. My dad is, um, taking care of most of the arrange.

Well, I just wanted to stop by and see if he needed anything.

Hey, . Hey, um, how’s, how’s Dad doing? He’s pretty broken up about Kayla, but Bonnie’s been really great with him, I have to say. Yeah, I’m sure. I, I just, I can’t believe this, this wonderful woman is gone just because, you know, some evil bastard wanted to get a little even or something. I’m sorry man. I just feel so bad for our kids.

Stephanie trip, Joey. I mean, I, I, I know what it’s like to lose a mother. Oh my God, my uncle Steve. I just, I, I can’t even imagine what he’s going through.

Oh, sweetness.

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

No touching. Come on. Cut us a break. Our mom just died. You were on thin nights after what happened? Withs yesterday. Don’t make me tell you again.

What’s she talking about? Nothing doesn’t sound.

After you told me about what happened to mom, I was upset. I was really upset about what Orpheus did, so I attacked him. Don’t worry, he’s, he’s okay. He’s fine.

But after Orpheus found out what happened to mom, he, uh, He decided to express his sympathy about the whole thing. And, uh, he gave me this, you know, you know, he’s the pain,

so we able to get a flight back. Yeah, he, uh, he nabbed the first seat on standby. Good. So then he’ll be here soon. Let’s hope. I mean, you’re, him is saying goodbye to his grandma Kate. We’re all hoping that Grandma Marlene is gonna pull through, but God forbid he doesn’t. I’m just hoping he gets back in time to say goodbye to her.

Well, I get that. Hey, um, did Stephanie. I mean, was she able to be there with her mother? Did she at least get to say goodbye? No, she didn’t.

This was so sweet of the kids

last night, I told them that their great-aunt Kayla went to Heaven and explained to them that she was your mom. And they wanted to make that for you.

After my mom died, my dad read me some of the Lenic books and it made me feel less sad. If you want, you and I can read them together sometime. They’re really funny. Especially the bad mood and the stick. Love Thomas. What a sweetheart. Charlotte wanted to write something so I had to help her a little bit.

I’m sorry, your mommy died. Mine died too.

I miss my mommy.

My love,

this still doesn’t seem real.

You were so tough. You fought that virus with everything you had. I really thought you were gonna, you were gonna beat it. I really did.

When I woke up this morning, I turned toward you like I always do.

I expected to see you there lying next to me.

I mean, even now, I still expect you to walk through the.

Why the hell would or excuse that to you? He’s trying to get me to fall off the wagon. But I didn’t touch it. I didn’t even open it. I didn’t take a trial. Okay, so then why not just get rid of it? Because it sucks in here. That’s why. And I am tempting. You have no idea what it’s like. I, I’m sure it sucks, and I can only imagine how much you wanted, all the pain.

But Lucas, this, this is, I know, I know. I won’t, I won’t let Lord swear. I promise you. I’ll try my best. I will try to stay strong. Okay. You know what? If not for you, do it for mom. You need the bottle. Lucas, this is the last thing that you’ve won. Hey, you two. Oh, Roman. Oh. Such a terrible, terrible tragedy. Oh, honey, our hearts go out to you.

Hey buddy. Right? I’m sorry. Oh, I’m so sorry. How can we help? I’m sure there are 1,000,001 things that need to be taken care of. Wait. Whatever you need. Well, uh, you know, I appreciate the offer, but, uh, Steve’s he’s taken care of. Kayla’s arrangements and Kate’s well, there’s not a whole lot to help with there either.

Uh, Kate didn’t want a funeral. Oh, then what did she want? This

Jayla. I’m sorry, I should have not. No, it’s not necessary. Come on in.

I hope I’m not bothering you. Steph told me that you were here at the. Yeah, I had to come here and sign some papers so they could release Kayla’s body to the funeral home, and I just wandered in here. I have, I had a feeling that this is where I find you,

all the things are here, just the way she.

Silly, silly, colorful reading glasses she always wore.

Got her water bottle here.


Stephanie made this for her mom, her second grade, I think.

Kayla told me that she liked having pieces of us here

cuz it reminded her that her patients had families too. People who loved them just as much as she loved us.

She, she always did everything she could to send them home to their families

so they wouldn’t have to go through.

I’m so sorry. Sorry, what do you mean? Sorry? Why? Well, it’s just after everything that you’ve been through, I don’t, you don’t need to see me falling apart like this. No. Listen to me. What I, what I need to do. Is be here for you, helping you comforting you a little. If I can,

it’ll help my heart. I’m doing this for purely selfish reasons. You’re being very kind.

And your mom. She was a wonderful woman.

Anytime I was around her, she, she lifted my spirit.

Abby loved her. I loved her.

Everybody loved your mom. She loved Abigail too, and

it’s just the hardest thing about it right now is that I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye. Joey and Tripp, they got to talk to her on the phone and they’re all the way in Seattle. I’m right here in town and not even five minutes from the hospital. I’m sorry,

you finally had gone to the hospital just a little bit sooner. I could have held her in my arms one last time, and I could have told her how much I loved her and I, what a great mom she was. Look at me.

She knew.

I can’t believe I missed your messages. I, I can’t believe I missed your calls.

Stephanie came over here last night with me and we slept together for the first time. Then Chad showed up. He told her that her mother was dying. That’s my fault that she didn’t get there in time. Alex, come on. It’s not your fu there, there’s um, a million reasons why Chad wouldn’t have been able to reach her.

She, uh, Stephanie could have been doing anything. She could have been at dinner, at a movie. She could have been asleep. You, you can’t blame yourself just cuz you were, you know, making them off. Oh, Sonny, that’s not, that’s not why I blame myself. And then why else? I blame myself because Chad was trying to. I turned her phone off.

I’m so sorry you didn’t get my calls when you didn’t answer your phone. I, I did everything I could to find you. I, I had remembered that you and Alex were going to the bistro, so I went to the Bist. It was closed and then I just, I took a gamble and um, went to his house, which is where I was obviously.

And what’s driving me crazy is that you were kind enough to try to call me multiple times, and I never even heard the damn phone ring.

Must have just turned it.

I must have. It’s the only possible explanation. It’s just I don’t remember doing it. You turned her phone off, son. It’s not like I knew Chad was calling to tell her that her mother was dying. Okay. Fun. Why would you turn her phone off in the first place? Because I didn’t, I didn’t want him to be interrupting us.

A again, what do you mean again? It happened on Christmas two, sunny Stephanie and I, we were about to make love for the first time, and then Chad shows up upset and then Stephanie feels for him and lets him stay. Okay. I, I, I see why that could be frustrating. Oh, it’s more than frustrating, man. What was supposed to turn out is this romantic evening.

Really ends up just being the three of us playing video games. And I understand that he’s your best friend at all. I get it. I get it. But he’s the definition of a third wheel. Alex cut the guy a brake. He just lost his wife in the worst way possible. He probably just doesn’t wanna be alone. That I know that.

And I get it, and I feel for him. I really do. But like I said, this is getting ridiculous, man. I, I, I, I just had a meeting scheduled with Stephanie yesterday. Instead, she goes ice skating with, with, with Chad and the. It’s like every time I turn around, this guy’s there and, and, and, and

I, I don’t know. I don’t know. I, I, I saw him calling and Anthony, you turned her phone off without her now. Yes. Without her knowing, obviously. I thought maybe it was just the kids calling to say goodnight. I thought it was harmless. Sunny that maybe she. Call him back, man. I had no idea that she wouldn’t be able to say goodbye to her mom.

I’m sorry. No, no. Don’t be sorry. I should be the one. Sorry, I, I didn’t mean to intrude. I can come back. No, no. Fine. Really? You sure? I’m sure. I’m good now. So tell me, what do you got? Well, unfortunately not much at the moment. If Kristen is telling the truth, we’re gonna track down whoever stole that orchid ray working on it right now.

He’s a team at the Damaris. We are searching every inch of that secret room. I sure hope you find that orchid. It may be too late for Mike, Kayla and Kate. But I sure do hope Marlena can be spared.

Yeah. Was Kate’s express wishes to be cremated? So, uh, here she is. Well not her obviously, but, uh, it’s still very comforting to have this close to me. Of course, it. Yeah, I mean, you know, I always thought it was strange, you know, I am carrying around that room with Tony’s Ices and, uh, talking to it like he was still here, but, uh, kind of get it now, kind of understand whatever helps buddy.

Except, uh, I’m not sure it is helping, you know, I did say that it. Very comforting cabinet here with me, but uh, actually I just, uh, I am numb right now. Jesus doesn’t, doesn’t feel real. And I guess that’s what they call. Denial, right? Yes, of course. Of course. You’re in denial losing your, your wife and your sister.

It is too much. You’re right, Paul. It is. It’s way too much.

It’s alright.

Fine. Take it. Thank you. Thank you for saving me for myself. Hey, you’re my brother. We have to be there for each other, especially now.

Speak bitch. Have you told Billy and Austin yet? I, I spoke with Austin yesterday and he’s trying to get in touch with Billy. On an assignment somewhere, and oh, Cassie spoke with Cassie and now everyone knows not everybody. What, who, who else is there? You gotta tell Phillip. It’s Phillip, Philip. He’s been missing for a year.

Lucas, I, I didn’t wanna believe it, but I just, That he died. Rex, my brother Phillip is very much alive.

Phillip is in a mental institution. How do you know this? Listen to me. Remember when we thought the Brady stabbed Phillip? Yeah. Phillip Framed. What? Yeah, he, he was outta control man. He was in a complete jealous rage over Chloe. He lost it. He had a breakdown, and, and if anyone knew about that, he’d, he’d probably be in here with me.

And mom was okay with this. Mom didn’t think that Philip could handle prisons. Shane Victor said him away, you know, somewhere where he could get better, hopefully. But, She wanted to do the same thing for me, but I wouldn’t let her,

doesn’t surprise me. This is vintage mom, right? ? Yep. Even when the chips were down. She was always looking out for her kids.

Oh, oh, oh honey. It’s more than you should have to bear losing your, your wife and your sister one night after the other. Oh, such wonderful women, and you are your beautiful sister, Kayla. Well, I didn’t know her too well, but she always made me feel welcome here in.

Oh, and Kate. Well, she and I, we knew each other a little bit better. She was direct, honest. Ah, you did not have to guess what that woman was thinking about . It was like someone else I knew. Right. That’s why she and I ended up with a really good connect. Because when we got to talking, really talking, we found we had a a lot in common.

We both been through some bad times with bad men. We, we survived. We got stronger for it. Yeah, no. Talking to Kate that day, I felt like I’d met a kendred spirit. I was, I was lucky to know her.

I remember when I was, Uh, my father would speak very highly of Kayla. He would say how wonderful she was and how, how lucky you were to have found her. Yeah, my old buddy Marcus sure was right about that. And just living in Salem these past few months, I’ve really got to see how amazing Kayla was. She was thought.

Caring. She was. She gave her all, and not just to her friends and family, to her patients. It was really important to her, but her patients felt respected.

But the kids and. We were the lucky ones as we had her. Love Steve. You still do. She lives on through your kids

and her love. Her love will always stay with you te it’s here in your heart.

So you don’t remember turn off your phone? No, but I know it was off because this morning when I went to check my emails, I had to turn it back on. I must have turned it off when I was with Alex.

Maybe he just didn’t wanna be disturbed. I guess

I remember we were in his room and then I went into the bathroom to change. It’s probably when he did it, I guess, but I just, I don’t remember doing it. Damn, man. If I could go back in time, I would give. Anything not to have turned that damn phone off. I’m sure you’re not the only one. As soon as Chad got there, we raced over to the hospital, but it was too late.

My God, if we just got there a little bit sooner, should would’ve been able to see her mom one last time, that now she’s beating herself. She didn’t get there. She didn’t get a chance to say goodbye,

so whatcha you gonna do? I don’t think there’s anything I can do. Sonny. I obviously can’t fix this. No, you can’t. Five. Or what? You can tell Stephanie the truth, come clean about what really happened.

Getting a little misty in here. I better go fix my makeup.

You. A really good one. I know. And I appreciate all the good things she said about, uh, Kate Kayla.

Yeah, but she, she meant every word. She, uh, she was fond of both women and. Buddy, how close I was to both Kate and Kayla and, uh, love Kayla almost as if she were my own sister. Yeah, Kate. Well, we, we had our issues over the years, but we ended up being very good friends.

She did Dad, she did drive me crazy sometimes though. you, me both part. Oh, that’s because she was, well, the woman, she was a force to be reckoned with. Oh. Oh. That she was , you know, when she wanted something. When she wanted something for herself or for. Somebody else. She, she made sure she got it.

you have to go to the sanitarium. You have to tell Philip what happened. Where is he? Roman can give you the details for, my dad knows about this too. Mom wasn’t gonna lie to him. She told him everything. Trust me, he’ll be able to point you in the right.

Okay. Okay. I’ll go. Thank you. I, I know you’ll break the news to him, Jim. Of course, I will. Look, I don’t wanna make his life any worse or more difficult than it already is, besides, now that mom’s gone, we siblings have to stick together.

You know, I understand why you can’t stop replaying what happened last. Trying to figure out why you, why you didn’t get the messages.

Marlena told me,

she told me that, um, thinking that you could change the outcome is just a, a way to feel like you still have some control. Yeah. That sounds about right.

When Abby died,

I kept thinking that, you know, if I just hadn’t taken the kids to see a movie, or, you know, if we had gone to Boston that night that things would be different.

It took me a long time to realize that it wasn’t my.

There was no way that I could’ve known what was gonna happen. No one ever knows. No. No one ever knows.

I’m sorry. I’m sorry to keep harping on this, but Chad, I hardly ever turn my phone off, so for it to be off. Just when I needed it more in my entire life to be reachable.

I’m sorry that, that, that’s making this so much harder for you. It is. Because when I saw that you called, I just wanted to, I just wanted to turn back time and answer the phone so that you could tell me about mom and then I would’ve run to the hospital to. And I would’ve held her in my arms and I would’ve told her what a great mom she was.

I can’t tell Stephanie the truth, son. Are you kidding me? She’ll hate me. Besides, it’s not like it’s gonna change anything now anyway. No, it’s not gonna change what happened last night, but it can change what happens from now. I mean, do, do you really wanna start your relationship with this, this huge secret hanging over your head?

That’s the whole point we just started. If I tell her this, that’s it. We’re done. Okay. But if you don’t, what kind of relationship are you gonna have? Listen, you said that you really care about Stephanie. I do. Then you’re comfortable lying to her about something this important.

Okay, your standing lunch order, I made sure the cheese on your panini is melted, just the way you like it. Thanks. But I didn’t come here just for lunch. No. You know, with everything going on, I haven’t had a moment to tell you how sorry I am about Kayla and Kate. Thank you, Jay. That means a lot. I mean, I’m sure it goes without saying how I felt about Kayla, but I wanted you to know how kind Kate was to me.

Well, I know she liked you a lot and uh, she was a good person to have in your corner.

I sure was lucky to have her and Mar visiting. I was over. I was just gonna leave.

Thanks for coming. Thank you for everything. Of course, man, Lord. Take care of yourself, okay? Not just for your sake. The sake of everyone who cares about you, including me, right?

You tell your buddy Orpheus to stop pushing booze on my brother or I will talk to your warden and I will have you fired. Kate Roberts kids stick together. All right.

Hey. Yeah, come in. I’m sure I am. Come on.

I ran into Jada at the pub. Oh, and she told you where you could find me. Huh? . I appreciate you checking up on me, man. But, uh, I’m, I’m fine. I just had to come down and make some arrangements. Can I help you with anything? No, I can handle it, but thanks Steve. Um, I, I, I know you, you know, the K was one of my closest friends.

Yeah. I was far from the only one. Your wife. She, well, she touched so many lives. And for those of us who, who loved her and would love to by her, what we want to do, what would make her happy? And right now, right now, that means looking after you.

Thanks buddy. Thank you.

Thank you for coming by and saying all the right things. Yeah. I don’t know if I didn’t.

I’m around if you want to talk. Thank you. I appreciate that. And please thank Thomas and Charlotte for my card. Yeah, I will. I love it. They’re crazy about you. You know.

Don’t hesitate to call me. Okay. Day, night, doesn’t matter. I’ll be here. I won’t. Thank you.

Of course I’m not comfortable lying to Steph. I wasn’t trying to hurt her, Sonny. I just made a mistake. Yeah, I know. But this mistake is eating you up inside and, and the longer that you keep her in the dark, the longer you’re gonna be haunted by it. And what, what if she figures the truth out on her own then?

I wish you figured that out. I don’t know, but it, it sure is how possible. And then she’ll know that you didn’t just turn off her phone, but you lied about it too. So wouldn’t it be better if she just found out the truth from you?

Hey son. Hey dad. I just came from seeing Lucas. How is he holding up? As best he can. He also told me about. Yeah, I am really sure about that. You know what, I am really the one that should have told you. No, no. Look, you, you just were doing what you thought was best for him. He wants me to go to the sanitarium.

Tell Philip about mom. I think you should. Okay. I’ve you sure? I don’t wanna leave you alone right now, pres. I appreciate your concern, but I’ll manage. Okay. I want you to go correct. All right. Phil needs to know what happened and you are the best person to tell him. You’re sure about that? Yes, I am sure.

And not only that, which mom would find, okay.

Oh, big track. Hey, sunny. Um, Look, I’m, I’m sorry about Kate. Thank you. And I’m sorry about your Aunt Kayla. I just saw Steph. How’s she doing? It’s a stupid question. She’s, she’s in a lot of grief. She know I’m obsessing about not getting my call to tell her about her mom, which is, which is why she didn’t get to say goodbye to her last night.

That’s, that’s gotta be tougher. She’s in a lot of pain, beating herself up for turning off her phone.

I’m go freshen up. I’ll be right.

Hey, I just stopped by to check on you.

I’m. Because there’s something I have to ask you. Okay,

Alex, last night. When I went into the bathroom to change, did you turn my phone off?

Transcript provided by Suzanne


know where Dr. Rolf is? Yeah. He’s in Jakarta. Jakarta as in Indonesia. Yes. What’s he doing there? Lee Shin set him up with a secret lab. Ugh. I guess Lee thought no one would find him on the other side of the world. Yeah, but I found him. With the Elise own sister,

please. I’m glad I found you here. Why? What’s going on? My life is falling apart. I need your help.

Look, what are you doing here?

I just spoke to my nephew, Johnny. Apparently he and Wendy. Went to Jakarta back in November and found Dr. Rolf November. Yeah. He told them the same thing he told you, which is that Lee and my sister Kristen made him brainwash me to turn me against you. Does that mean that you believe me now?

I do.

What do you mean you are coming home? Well, you have a room and I need a place to sleep. Aren’t you staying with your baby daddy at John o Malina’s? I did until my baby daddy threw me out. Not surprising. Considering what you did to him, what exactly have you. Johnny just spoke with Allie, so I suppose you could say, I know everything, which is why I don’t want you living in this house.

Kristen forced you to break up with me. How would she do that? I guess she would call it extortion, but what was she holding over your. The lives of people that I love. Kristin played God, Chloe, and now two women are dead.

I heard about Kayla. I’m so sorry.

Thank you. How’s your mom doing? She’s an icu. She’s not, she’s not doing well. I don’t know what to say. It’s, it’s awful. I was gonna reach out to you before, so you know what, I should get going. Well, Eric, wait, what?

You just lost your. And now your mom is, yeah. This is so much more important than what’s going on between us. And could you just talk to me please?

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

I can’t believe it. Kate and Kayla. Oh my God. Marlena. Is she, Marlena is, uh, she’s, she’s barely, barely hanging on Chloe. She’s, she’s at the hospital and it’s all because of Kristen. All three women had a relapse from the virus that Orpheus infected them with. Oh my God. That is, that is horrible. I thought they were out of the woods.

We all did. I don’t understand. What does Kristen have to do with. Kristen had the orchid. She was the one that provided the serum in the first place, and the only reason she was willing to turn it over was if I agreed to end my relationship with you. I cannot believe you’ve been holding those women’s lives over Brady’s head for months.

Oh my God. Just stop clutching your. You would’ve done the same thing to win over the person you love . All of this was so that he would break up with Chloe Lang. Well, like you said, Brady’s my baby daddy, and Rachel wanted us to be a family and I wanted to give that to her. So it was about Rachel. Yes, and Bri and I belong.

Well, as warm and fuzzy as that sounds, we need to talk about the fact that two women are dead and there could be a third. I had every intention of giving all those three women their doses. If someone stole the orchid, that is not my fault. Well, that’s debatable, and Brady clearly doesn’t see it that way.

Now he’s furious. That’s why he kicked me out the door.

So now you’ve come crawling back here with your tail between your legs. No, I came because this has always been my home. And you, my loving, wonderful brother are gonna welcome me with open. And why would I do that? Because if you don’t, I’m gonna tell our brother, Stefan exactly what you did to him. Hmm. Oh my God.

It it happened. You, you believe what I’ve been saying this whole time, that, that Rolf messed with your head, that he made you hate me. . Yeah. And, and Wendy knew about this since November and she just told you now, protecting her big brother, I guess she was by maid of honor. We were, we were gonna be sisters.

How could she just stand there and let me marry a man who would do something this horrible? Well, from what Johnny said, she hated what Lee did, but couldn’t bring herself to betray him. Oh. So she betrayed me instead. Well, now we know what they did. Now we know what they all. Stephan to keep you and me apart.

I just wanted to see Gabby. I begged her for another chance. How’d she react? She threw her wedding cookies at me. She said she hates me, that our marriage is over, that were done forever and I’m so sorry. I appreciate your sympathy, Jing. But that’s not what I need from you right now. What is it that you need?

You must talk to Gabby and change her mind.

So Kristen said that she would withhold the serum unless you agree to break up with me. And then she forced me to move her in. And, and, and if I didn’t, she would let all three women die. She wasn’t bluffing either, cuz I, I’ve watched the women get weaker and weaker.

What did you tell me, Brady? I could have kept quiet. I could have helped you. Just, you, you, you, no idea how much I wanted to tell you. I wanted to be honest with you. I wanted to tell you the truth. I almost did. I almost slipped a couple times, but I was, I was, she was threatening me, Chloe. I was nervous that if, that, if I told you and somehow she found out that I told you or anyone, those three women would’ve died.

But once they got the treatment and they recovered, oh, she, she, she claimed that they needed supplemental doses in order to stay healthy. That is how she kept me on the hook. Oh my God. And you didn’t tell anyone Very, my pinpoint. I eventually confided in Eric and we came up with a plan to get the orchid.

So Kristen was blackmailing Brady this whole time, and that’s why he broke up with Chloe. It’s the only way to save my mom, Caitlin and Kate. But he couldn’t tell Chloe well, I just came from seeing her, and then Brady showed up and said that he wanted to talk to her alone because he’s finally telling her the truth.

Wow. That’s gonna be a shock. I mean, he broke her heart. Hopeful. Only one good thing comes of this Brady will be free. He’ll be what? The person he loves, the one he belongs to.

So Christian led Brady to this orchid and it wasn’t there. What happened to it? She claims that it was stolen. John. He wouldn’t leave my mom’s bed. But he has his people looking everywhere for, well, hopefully he’ll find it soon. Yeah. If only we just come up with our plans sooner to force Kristen and turn it over.

What plan and how are you gonna force her? My kidnapping, Rachel,

I have no idea what you think I do to Stephan. Oh, , let’s stop playing games. I’ve had a very, very long day. Ready kicked me out. My daughter was kidnapped and former father Eric pointed a gun at me. Hmm. You’re lucky he didn’t pull the trigger given what you did to his mother, you seem disappointed. I have no ill will toward you despite the fact that you betrayed me and voted to keep dira in Gabby’s hands.

God bygones, right? Sure. But I don’t want your drama or machinations in this house. Oh, you only want your drama and machinations in this house. I didn’t do anything to Stephanie . Oh God. Did Ralph inject you with something to make you forget? Huh cuz I will be clearly happy to refresh your memory. My memory’s just fine.

Okay. Then you should remember, um, that you’ve known about Stephan’s brainwashing for quite some time yet you chose to keep it a secret. So, so I also kept it a secret until now and we both know how fast that could change. All right. I just sent you the address. Look, I know it’s outta your jurisdiction. I know it’s it’s way outta your jurisdiction, but is there any way you can get anyone to Ralph’s lap?

Oh yeah. I’ve got contacts on the State Department over there. I’m sure I can get in touch with someone, right? If we gotta hurry. All right. Finding Ralph is, is the only way we’re gonna find the serum that could save Grandma Marlena’s life. You and Wendy were in that lab Yeah, back in November. Do you remember seeing an orchid there?

No. But that doesn’t mean it’s not there. The Goun, Kayla Kate. They’re already gone. Grandma Marlene is fading fast. Please pray if this is our only hope. I understand. Listen, I promise you we are gonna do everything that we can to find Dr. Rolf and net zero. I promise

you think anything I say to Gabby will make her take you back. She’s very fond of you. She said she liked you from the moment she met you. I, I liked her too. Li but come on, this is a lost cause. The hell it is. We both know I’m better for Gabby than s Stephan Damara. Look at how he treated her because you had Dr.

Ralph condition his brain to hate her. Even so, even so. No, no, no. How does there, and even so, you made sure the guy not only didn’t love Gabby anymore, you made him repulsed by her. I know that. Just hear me out.

I love Gabby in a way. Stephan never could. We are good together. You said it yourself. It’s not up to me, but you can help. Please, please, Jing win. Just talk to her. She’ll. She’ll listen to you. I know she will. That little hypocrite pretended to be on my side. She even drove me to the airport to come see you and the whole time she was covering for her.

We’ve both been lied to whole hell of a lot. You know, I’m gonna deal with Wendy later. But what matters now is that you, you know the truth. You know, I thought I lost you forever, but then you, then you came back and you couldn’t stand the side of me. But now you understand why you, you know the truth, which is why you came back here.

Because if it wasn’t for Rolfe, we’d be together. Right? You know that this changes everything for us.

No, it doesn’t.

So when Kristen finally led me to the place where she was keeping the orchid, it was gone. She claims that she has no idea what happened to it, and you believe her. She would never willingly give up her leverage on me because now, now she has nothing to hold over my hand, and that’s why you kicked her out.

Chloe, I kicked her ass out of there as soon as I could, and I came right here because I wanted to let you know, baby, I’ve never stopped loving you. I was forced to do what I did and I knew that I would find my way back.

You are not saying anything. I just wish I know. I baby. I know, I know. No, no. You don’t understand. I, I wish I would’ve known all of this before I slept with Stephan.

How could you say this doesn’t change anything between us? Are you forgetting you’re married to someone else? Someone that I know despise? I, I need to call a voy and try to figure out how to file for a divorce or an annulment, anything to get away from the son of a bitch. I mean, how could I wanna be with this person after what they did to me?

To you? His lies ripped our lives apart. Yes, Gabby. They did. And now that I know the truth, I feel horrible for how badly you’ve been hurt and all this. And I am so sorry for the way I treated you. No, that none of that was your fault. That was all. And me maybe. But I’m the one who said the words, Gabby, you loved me and I still love you.

I know you do,

but I don’t still love you. Well, that’s because Rolf turned you against me. He pushed you into Chloe’s arms. However, it happened, Gabby, my feelings for Chloe are real,

and there’s really no way to say this next part that won’t sound. But well just say it. I know in my head that I used to love you, but as I stand here and I look at you,

I only feel terrible for how much you’ve been.

I don’t feel any attraction toward you. That’s because Rolf has conditioned your brain. The fact that it’s it’s still working shows how successful Rolf was at programming you to hate mete. You. You don’t hate me, Stephen. You love me jammy. No, listen. You just have to answer one question. Do you wanna be with Chloe, somebody that someone else forced you to love?

Or do you wanna be with a person that you chose to love me, Lee, what you’re asking of me, I’m asking you to do the right thing. Have you seen Stephan with. , it’s clear they belong together and I belong with Gabby. No. How is it clear? How is it clear? She, she wants nothing to do with you. She’s furious with you.

She’s just hurt. Okay. She can get past the betrayal and remember how good it was. Go help her. Remember. Tell her how sorry I am. Yes, you vote. Listen, then make her listen. You could do this for me. Okay? I believe in you

Johnny. Hey,

I’m so sorry about your aunt. Thank you. Uh, how’s your grandmother doing? Uh, you know, we’re, uh, we’re holding out hope that she’ll beat this thing, but with, you know, with what happened with, uh, Kate, not Kayla, Johnny, I, I’m, I’m very sorry about all of this, but Wendy really needs to get going. God, please.

Can’t you see how upset he’s right now? Look, if you, if you’ve got something important to do, I don’t wanna keep No, it can wait. No, it can’t. Lee wants me to convince Gabby that he deserves another chance. Oh. Uh, well in that case, Wendy, I should tell you that I, uh, I told Ste. That we knew about the brainwashing before the wedding, and I just, I, I, I thought it was only right that, that he know that Gabby was telling the truth.

Oh, all the more reason for Wendy to get over there and talk to Gabby before Stephan does. Jing, when this is my life, I need you.

I’ll call you later.

Oh, good luck, Lee. Before you go, oh, we need to have a learn.

It’s always so refreshing when we can be honest with each other, don’t you? You want to talk? Honestly, it wasn’t that long ago that you stood in this very room and told me how sorry you were, that my mother was dead. I offered to accompany you to the funeral, but you turned me down ej. You didn’t want my sympathy.

So this is payback for that slack? No, it’s called desperation. See, I need a place where I can regroup and, uh, figure out my next move on winning Brady back.

Here’s an idea. Maybe you could have Rolf fill around in his brain so he falls back in love with you. If I could find Rolf, I, it was a. Hilarious. Can we just stick to the subject at hand? Can I stay or do I need to go find Stephan and tell him how you betrayed him? Are you forgetting your role in our brother’s ordeal?

You were a part of it long before I was. So what? I’m not running the company, so I have nothing to lose. And besides Lee Shannon and. What we did was for a higher moral purpose, . Oh, and what was that about? Love. Yeah. We did it for true. Love you, . You kept a secret to hold onto power. Power, which you could lose if Stephan learns about your complicity.

What? Huh? Oh, no. Witty retort for that one. Yeah. Brother, why don’t you. Be a deer and grab my bag. I think I’m gonna stay in the guest room in the west Wing. I’m in the sunsets on the balcony. So striking this time of year, or would you rather I tell everyone what I know. Know about what

you kidnapped Rachel. It wasn’t a real kidnapping. It was a ruse to pressure, Kristen to turn it over. She’s just a child. She must have been traumatized. She was, and you know how dangerous Kristen is? Used pawn in this game. She was safe. I’m telling you. She was safe the entire time. Really? Really? Where did you keep her?

I left her with Sloan. Sloan, your shady hookup buddy. She’s someone I totally trust. Why do you have a problem with that? I have a problem with it. The question is, why don’t you have a problem with it?

I, oh my God, Eric, that woman is a menace. It’s not my place to judge her. Oh, . Oh, really? Oh, but you have no problem judging me. Here we go again. Oh, here we go again. In, you know what Sloane did to Chanel and Paulina? She blackmailed them. She threatened to send them to prison. She tried to ruin their lives.

Is this really about Chanel and Paulina? Are you just jealous that Sloane and I are sleeping together?

Sorry to interrupt. You know Harold’s let me in. I’ll be sure to have a word with him about that. Is there something we can help you with? I hope so. Were you two just discussing the missing orchid? You mean the stolen orchid, right? Stolen, yes. Perhaps it’s been, um, recovered. I assure you, commissioner, if I knew anything about the whereabouts of that, I wouldn’t keep it to myself.

Are you sure about that? Marna is my son’s grandmother. Losing her, especially after having just lost his other grandmother would break his heart. I never want that to happen. Right. What about you, Kristen? How would you feel if Marlena didn’t survive?

I should, uh, I, I should get to the hospital to check on my grandma. Then I won’t keep you. I just have one question before you leave. Okay. When you were being so honest with your Uncle Stephan, did you happen to tell him your father’s role in all this? Did you inform s Stephan that his brother EJ knew what Dr.

Rolf had done and decided to keep his mouth shut? No. No, I, I didn’t mention to him that my father knew that. Had Ralph brainwash him. It’s nice to see you Tamara’s all stick together. But you have no problem throwing me under the bus.

I’m not asking you how you feel right now. No. You’re asking me who I want to love. Stephen, don’t you wanna take back your free will even if it means losing. Okay, that is Helen. It’s you, Javi. Can we please talk? Look, I understand that you’re upset with me, but I’m here because yes, Stephen just told me how you knew all about what your brother did to us and you kept it a secret.

So yes, I do wanna talk.

You slept with Stephan

on New Year’s Eve, right before Gabby burst into our hotel room. I was, I, I was afraid that’s where the two of you were headed. I just wish I would’ve known any of this. Chloe. Chloe.

It hurts, but it’s not your fault, not your fault. I, I, I put you in this position and at at least you know that Stephan’s feelings for you aren’t real. I understand that, but the thing is, my feelings for him. They are real.

When you ended things between us, I was devastated. It felt like not only had I lost you, but that I had lost solid ground in. Because when we were in the same room together, it felt like you still loved me. Yes, I did. Which is why it made no sense why it was so hard to process, and I, I, I, I, I’m, I’m so sorry that I put you through that, Chloe, and I know, I know, I know that you weren’t trying to hurt me, that you had to sacrifice your own happiness to save someone else that you loved.

And the, wow, the worst part about it was that I, I saw how much pain it was causing you.

I’m not gonna pretend that it wasn’t awful. Then I didn’t cry myself to sleep almost every night. Okay. But then Stefan was there at my lowest moments. He was there for me, and he helped me heal. We got close, and I would’ve never slept with him if my feelings were him weren’t strong and real because they were.

And they are.

I thought we were friends. Wendy, almost sisters. We were. Well then how could you keep this from me? Believe me, it’s not something I’m proud of. Is that supposed to make it better? No. I just, I came here to say I’m sorry and my brother Lee, he, he, all right, lemme save your breath and tell you what I told your big.

I hate him for what he did to me and I hate him for what he did to Stephan. And that’s not gonna change even if Roth straps me to a table and tries to brainwash me. Just please, Wendy. Bye-bye. See you around.

My brother and I were just stating the obvious actually. That losing Marlena would be a tragedy just as Kate’s St. Kayla’s death was a tragedy. Yeah, I don’t think so. Do you know what I think? I think the two of you were conspiring about something when I walked in. Do you wanna share? My sister and I were discussing a family mag, which doesn’t concern you.

Okay, fair enough. But. Speaking of family, I thought you might want to know that your family doctor is, uh, about to be arrested in Jakarta. Dr. Wilhelm Rolf, he found Rolf. I also called in some favors, so as soon as he’s arrested, he will be extradited to Salem where he will have to answer for his crimes in case you’re about to make an accusation.

Lee was the one who stashed the way, the good doctor. We had nothing to do with that. Well, thank you for the clarification and um, since you’re being so cooperative, I’m sure you won’t mind if I have a forensics team come search the, uh, secret room in the tunnels for leads. Why do we still call it a secret room?

And everyone knows about it. , you don’t, right ahead. You have nothing to hide. Oh, that’s, Fantastic. I’m also gonna need to review these security tapes for the past week. Mm-hmm. To start, we want the Orchid fan just as much as you do. Joni has already lost one grandmother, and I will do everything I can to make sure he doesn’t lose another.

Just so we’re clear on this, my father had no idea what you had Ralph do to Stephan until after the fact. I’m sure s Stephan would be delighted to hear that look. I am not excusing what my dad did. Okay. But he’s not the one who had Ralph dig around into Stephan’s brain, rip him away from the woman he loves.

He’s also not the one who pulled the plug on my uncle. No, that was you. I had my reasons. Sure you did. And listen, while we’re having this little, uh, heart to heart, let me just say you sending Wendy over there to talk to Gabby, that’s weak. Wendy is being a good sister. But you pressured her into it. See, you’ve put her into yet another impossible position.

Again, I just want Gabby to understand how much I love her. Sure. But like you said, Damara stick together. So I’m hoping that Gabby makes it explicitly clear to Wendy that she’s not going to take you back because she loves. She always will.

This is not about jealousy. You know, A is like family to me and I am protective of anyone who is in his family. Chanel and Paulina, hardly innocent in this situation. Oh my God, I cannot believe you are defending that woman. You don’t even know her. I know. Sloan lost her mother under terrible circumstances, and I’m afraid I’m about to relate to that.

Very sweet. Sorry, this is not the appropriate time to be arguing about Sloan. Why? I’m very happy to have this conversation and why we’re at it. Why don’t we talk about who you are shacking up with now? No point. I am not pretending that EJ is a saint and neither am I, but when we end our marriage, Decided that we were too different to make it work.

I was too much of a sinner and you were too much of a choir boy. But now I don’t know anymore. Eric, what kind of man are you?

I did what I did because I was protecting my family. You slept with Sloan to protect your family. I’m talking about the kidnapping I call my mother could die. I get that. So you don’t like the way I acted because I allowed Rachel to be babysat by someone you don’t approve of babysat. Okay. My soul is not questionable.

Maybe what I did because I was trying to protect my mother, but let’s talk about. And how you acted to end the life of my child,

Brady, as much as I wish I could, you can’t expect me to just come back to you and act as if nothing has changed. Chloe. Chloe, nothing’s, nothing has changed for me, Brady. I thought that you didn’t want me and that you chose to be with Kristen, and that was devastating, so I had to protect myself. I had to force myself to get over you.

The folks from the forensics lab are on their way. I assume you won’t give them any trouble. I’ll even offer them snacks. Wow. What a guy, huh? Oh, and Kristen? Yes. Eric Brady was in my office earlier demanding that I arrest. Arrest me for what? Just withholding the orchid that could save his mother’s life.

And you haven’t complied with his demand? Yeah. Well, I don’t have the facts to back up an arrest yet, but I’m sure as soon as I get my hands on Dr. Rolf, I can get him to flip on you and Lee and anybody else who might be involved. I’ll be in touch. Have a great day.

I can’t believe that Lee sent his little sister to try to change my mind about him, especially since she’d been keeping a secret. Clearly not a winning strategy. Yeah, but nobody could change my mind about how I feel about you.

I wish that you would say something,

Gabby, I know that you want to be with me and I feel horrible for how badly you’ve been hurt. Through all this, but it’s not gonna happen. Look, I know it’s hard to imagine, but if we could just find and have him undo what he did, when do you think I’m just gonna fall back in love with you? I don’t know. I mean, maybe you’ll still go on hitting me.

Maybe you still left. But don’t you wanna be yourself fully? Again, don’t you wanna make your own choices? Don’t you want your free will back?

How’s it going down there? Race team is descended upon the not so seeker room and the tunnels. Well, are they going to find anything? Unlikely. Well then it’s a good thing you welcome to him. I know. Hmm. Well, the next big question is, are you gonna do the same for your sister as if you’ve given me a choice?

At a boy you can stay for now. You better pray for Marlene’s sake and for yours if they find that orchid

look. Um,

I know I can’t just ask you to flip switch and go back to where things were before, but you need to know that I didn’t have a choice when it came to being with Kristen and, and, and you, you have a choice.

I under. I understand that, but I just, I can’t make that choice in this.

I, um, I’ll give you all the time you need and I’ll wait for as long as I have to.

I, I, I better go back to the hospital and check on, check on my dad. I’ll give him and Marlene on my best. Yeah. I, I will.

I love you

and when you are done figuring this whole thing out, I hope you’ll come to realize that you love me too.

Do you know how cruel it is to blame me over and over again for Jada’s choice? Jada’s choice? It is unfair. You know what? I’ve said this before, but I’m gonna say it again cuz maybe this time you’ll actually hear. I did not talk your ex-girlfriend into not having your baby. The way you go on and on accusing me.

It’s as if I dragged her to the abortion clinic myself. Oh, damn. Why you helped her make a choice. . You painted a total negative picture of what motherhood would be. If Jada wanted the baby, if she wanted to be a mother, then nothing I said or anyone said would’ve made a damn bit of difference. I totally disagree.

Of course you do. Oh, you know what? I no longer care if you agree or disagree, or if you think I’m the one who deprived you of your dreams of being a father. So how about this? How about we don’t discuss it anymore? Okay. Does that work for you? Dad works great for me. Oh, great. Now this sin is gonna go pray for your mother.

And you know what, while I’m at it, I’m gonna go pray for you too.

Did you talk to Gabby?

I did, but Stephan was there when I arrived. See your act. You got to her first. Lee. If we, if we hadn’t waited, if you hadn’t fought with me, please stop. Okay. I know how much you wanna be with Gabby, but this, this is over. No. Yes. She hates you for what you did. It is time to face reality and accept that she never wants to be with you again.

Okay. Let me know if you hear something Gabby. Hey, um, hey, we need your help. We need to find, we’ll roll. Why I now believe that that quack brainwashed me. Yeah. So Stephan’s agreed to have the mad doctor undo whatever it is he did. And after that, we’ll see where that leaves us. Uhhuh. Johnny thinks he knows where he is.

Yeah. Well, I’m sorry about, I got some bad news. I just got off the phone with the Jakarta police. They raided Ross lab, but he wasn’t there. He’s gone. Disappeared without a trace.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh, breakfast in bed again, . It’s uh, Harold’s morning off. Oh, even so that’s lovely of you. Uh oh. There’s no paper there. Harold always brings me a paper with breakfast. I know. Okay, well, I’ll let it slide. Just this once.

Let’s find on with you this morning, Nicole. I have some sad news and I wanted to break it to you myself,

Callie. I’m, uh, I am so sorry about Kate. Yeah, yeah, of course. Um, I will, uh, I’ll meet you at the hospital as soon as visiting hours start.

I love you too.

Uh, uncle Stephan, you’re. You’re finally back. Yeah. Sheer pan and moaning at the airport. I’m telling you, every single flight delayed or canceled, it’s a miracle. I even made it back from Miami, although I probably wouldn’t have minded another couple extra days in paradise with Chloe. So you uh, you had a good time.

Yeah. We rang in the new year on the dance floor at the hottest club in South Beach. No, uh, I don’t un unforeseen. Interruptions or Ah, you know about Gabby? Yeah. Yeah, I know about Gabby. I drove over to the airport. So she found you on New Year’s Eve? Yeah, she found me. It was a little bit after midnight, but yeah, she found me, told me everything.

Hey, welcome back. How’d it go? Did you.

Oh no, that doesn’t look good. Are you okay? I’m sorry,

Gabby. I,

Hey. I know, I know. It’s

Abby if you only knew. Damn it.

Hello, Lee Chloe. Hello. You’re. Did, uh, did um, Gabby just stop right there. I’m not really interested in answering your questions. Be damn well. Better answer mine.

Ugh. Rachel’s lunch. I knew we forgot something.

I hope. Eric,

I just came from seeing my phone. How is he doing? How is he doing? His wife just died and soon did his sister, my mother, she could be next.

Or maybe you beat her to it,

like Sam through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Then when I finally arrived in Miami, Stephen, who was in bed with Chloe, it was awful. Ra It was just, they just, Ugh. But, but you told him, right? You told him what Ralph did, that he planted those negative feelings about you that made him fall in love with Chloe? Yeah, I told him, I told him everything, but he says that, that, that, that doesn’t matter at all.

That he doesn’t care at all.

When you say Gabby told you everything, I mean that she told me everything. The whole alleged conspiracy theory, the brainwashing Lee pulling the plug, Rolfe and Lee playing God with me on the slab. All of it. Okay. I’m, I’m, I’m sorry, but you seem pretty blase about all this. You’re not upset. Did Rolf turned you against a woman that you love?

I mean, she married somebody else because you pushed her away. How am I supposed to believe any of that? Huh? What do you mean? Gabby tracked Ro down a couple of weeks ago before he left Salem. He swore up and down according. He swore up and down that he did nothing to manipulate my feelings for her and she believed him.

Now, all of a sudden, what? She changes her story and says the opposite. How am I supposed to know what story to believe?

I know. You know what? I know that Ralph brainwashed you. How do you know that? Because I heard it straight from the source. Himself,

Kate and Kayla, are they gone?

They um, They had a relapse of that rare disease they had months ago.

A relapse. May I, I, I don’t get it. I, I thought they, I mean that, that anonymous vial, right. They all, they all took it. I know. We all thought they were cur. They’ve been perfectly healthy all this time, but now,

oh my God.

What about Marlina? I mean, she had a too. Yes,

apparently she’s been similarly afflicted. She’s very ill, but. She’s still holding off. Hello?

Oh my God.

Poor Eric.

So you want revenge. Is that it Eric? You’re not a murderer. You are a priest. For God’s sake, Bible says hi for. Isn’t that a metaphor for, uh, shop hell up? Not a king. And I’m not a coward, apparently. You think I am kidnapped your daughter, didn’t I? Oh, yes, yes you did. I mean, it’s more of a glorified play date.

I mean, what you watched minions pop some popcorn put on makeup? I know you wouldn’t hurt Rachel. Just like, you’re not gonna hurt me. Hurt you is what you.

I didn’t think so. You hand over that a woo kid. We’re both about to find out what I’m capable of.

Well, he threw me out. He told me that he wanted to stay with Chloe and he threw me out. He didn’t even believe. I’m so sorry, Gabby. What we need to do is find Rolf. Okay. Maybe that sick bastard can undo what he did. If he still can, if Stephan will let him. Believe me, I am doing everything that I possibly can to try and find Rolf.

We need to get him to corroborate your story to, to pack it up. That that Lee and Kristen masterminding this whole mess. Yeah. Right. But I did have to release them from custody. What? I just don’t have the evidence to hold them, but believe me, I am going to get it. They are not gonna get away with what they did to you and Stephan.

Well, I’m not sure what you’ve heard, but I know everything, Lee. I was with Stephan when Gabby crashed our New Year’s in Miami. She told us everything. How you ordered Ralph to brainwash Stephan to keep him away from Gabby. He only did that because you knew you couldn’t compete. You played Godly with Stephan’s life.

With Gabby’s life, the woman that you claim to love. I do love Gabby very much who you have won hell of a wave showing. She hates you now, and not only did you tinker with s Stephan’s mind and manipulate Gabby, you got me involved in this nightmare. Why did you drag me into this? Lee

Ralph told you about this when, when overheard her brother having a conversation about Ralph and you, she got worried. You know, he might have gotten in over his head somehow. So she and I, we, uh, we, uh,

Jakarta, we took the company jet to Indonesia to find Rolf. It wasn’t some joy right? To impress Wendy. Okay. We, we were on a mission and you found him there, and Wendy tricked him into. Everything okay. Brainwashing you. All this stuff with Gabby and Roth got the upper hand on us and tried to inject us with some drug that would make us forget everything, just like he did to Gabby when she confronted him.

Right before he fled Salem. So Gabby was really drugged.

That’s why she was convinced he was innocent. Yeah. Oh my God. And when the drug wore off, she blew up her whole wedding. Expose the truth, God, on a plane to Miami to find you, to tell you everything.

Okay, well this is all very uh, Enlightening, but there’s just one piece missing for me. You said that you went to Jakarta weeks ago. Why am I just now hearing about this

Eric’s aunt and his stepmother and now possibly his mother? I mean, just like that. Oh my God, it’s an unspeakable tragedy.

Eric’s already in a bad place and after everything he’s been through, I mean, being kicked out of the priesthood and, and then there’s Jada thinking he was gonna be a father and having that taken away from him and. Whatever the hell he’s doing with Sloan, hateful woman.

And then of course there’s me. You didn’t do anything. Nicole. Look at me. He turned his back on you for no goodies.

Whatever it is, it doesn’t matter. I just, I wanna be there for him and I am sure I am. The last person he wants to see.

I’m afraid. Might be right about that,

Eric. If I knew where that orchid was, I would tell you, I swear. But how am I supposed to convince you that I’m telling the truth when you’ve got a gun pointed at me? Why would I believe anything you say? You have been a liar, not to mention a murder rapist. You now I’m not. Well, you love it. My mother died.

That is not true. Eric, shut up. I know you’re, you convinced Brady, you found ready to give up that orchid when poof, magically disappeared when we needed the most. No. I swear to you, I watched, I said shut the hell up.

It’s too convenient for all this to be a coincidence.

You’ve planned all this, but now your game is super

cause I got the gun.

You’re gonna to where that or is?

What the hell are you doing?

I’m so sorry, Nicole. Thank you. Yeah, but I, I, uh, I played my part in this. And you say, Eric pushed me away for no good reason and. Disagree because you’re too hard on yourself. It’s kind of you to say, but I think it’s the opposite. I think I am not hard enough on myself. Don’t say that, Nicole. You are a good person.

Hmm. And speaking for myself, having you stay here with me, to put it quite simply, it’s been very good to have you around your great company.

Well, I’m glad someone thinks so.

Um, before I forget,

think this belongs to you. I, uh, you know, I must have come off when I am. I ripped your shirt off the other.

Listen, I, I know it seems crazy that I am not ready to move on from Eric, especially when he hates my guts.

Look, you know what feels right. I will impress you.

Did I not pour to your liking?

No. No. It’s just this, this stupid. New Year’s resolution of mine. It just seems trivial now. No, I’m trying to, to quit caffeine and I’ve already failed.

I’ll be sure to add decaf after the shopping. Thanks. You know, but after the year, I’ve had, uh, no offense. But I’m thinking I’m gonna give up men instead.

What a fool. I was a trust shin. Right now I’m actually married to the creep way. We can be divorced buddies. I just got my papers from Nicole. Oh, we, I’m sorry. No, no. Hey, that’s for the best. . Oh my God. I gotta get to work. You gonna be okay? Oh yeah. Huh? Thank you. Thank you. Yeah, of course. Hey, my unsolicited advice, don’t give up on Steph, me.

Mm-hmm. give up. Come on. You know me better than that, I will never ever give up on the man I love. Dang. See. That’s what I like to hear. Okay.

See, you and Wendy flew halfway around the.

She risked her job and you risked, well, nothing really except maybe a stern talking to from your father, and you come back after having learned the truth. And you lie to my face.

I don’t get it.

If you tell him, not only could I lose Dira Enterprises, but I could also go back to prison for my complicity, please. I just lost my mother. Please don’t take anything else away from me, Johnny.

What are you not telling me?

Stephan, you’re back.

What’s going on here?

When Stephan woke up or came back to life, however you wanna put it, he not only hated Gabby, but he was fixated on. , why made no sense. We’d broken up way before he supposedly died, and I was with Brady then. So why, maybe you should ask yourself, who would stand to benefit from driving a wedge between you and Brady?

Are you saying that Kristen had a hand of this? Well, I’m not saying. But you happen to draw your own conclusions. No, no, no, no, no. You son of a bitch. You cannot screw around with people’s lives and then not own up to it. When you get caught, take some sort of responsibility. But no, you can’t do that can you?

Cuz you’re a disgusting excuse for a human being. Have you forgotten something? Uh, what to tell you to go to? No, but you work for me. Hmm. Not anymore. I quit.

Eric, she doesn’t know where the orchid is. Gimme, gimme the gun, man. Why are you doing this? Why you do everything she says or believe anything she says. Eric, Eric. Eric. She swore on our daughter’s life, okay? She has no reason to lie. She has every reason to manipulate you. Eric. Your mother needs you, brother.

We are running outta time. Gimme the. Please,

I’m playing your game.

If anything happens to a mother, she dies.

Thank you. I didn’t do it for you. I did it for my brother. Now that he’s gone, will you kindly go pack with bags and get out of this house?

Hey, I heard s Stephen was home, so I figured you were back too. Hey, I’m so happy to see you. Same here. I’m assuming you heard about that disaster in Miami? No, no. Actually, I, I, I didn’t even talk to s Stephan, but Chloe, listen, I’m, I’m so sorry. I really am. I mean, after what happened at Gabby’s wedding, I just felt that she should know where Stefan was.

No, it’s, it’s okay. Really? Honestly, I wish someone would’ve told her sooner. What do you mean? I mean, s Stephan and I rang in the new year by sleeping together. Okay. Yeah, I mean, I almost didn’t go through with it. When we got to Miami. I couldn’t stop thinking about Brady and I didn’t think I was ready.

But then I just thought, I deserve to be happy and I deserve to feel good. Yes, of course you do. So I went through with it and it really was wonderful. But then we were lying there together in each other’s arms, and Gabby comes bursting into our hotel room and she tells us everything that. Wolf had brainwashed Stephan into hating Gabby and fixating on me.

Oh, Chloe, I, I just feel so stupid. I mean, the only reason Stephan wanted me was because Wolf had engineered those feelings. No, I am sure. That is not the only reason. I don’t know. Nicole Stephan says he still hates Gabby and that his feelings for me are real no matter what Ralph did or didn’t do. But can I really believe.

You were just talking about what Ralph did. It’s Uncle Stephan. Yes. Johnny just informed me that he’s known all about this and he was just about to attempt to explain himself. Right. Um, well really, I, I kept quiet because of someone I care. Who?

Wendy. Wendy, um, yeah. She and I, she and I had gotten really close and her brother begged her not to expose him. She agreed. So I felt that I had to keep my mouth shut too for her. And that’s the whole story, huh? That’s the whole story.

Go away.

I said go away. I have nothing to say to you. Please, you, you don’t have to say anything. Just, just hear. Why should I, and all you’ve done is lie to me. You knew Stefan wasn’t alive and you didn’t tell me anything. Ke there was nothing to be done. He had no heart and all I had was a vague promise from a mad scientist who said, said there was a possibility he might wake up someday.

My interest in Stefan had nothing to do with you. It was about what resurrecting him might do for dam. Oh, okay. Who’s business over pleasure. Is that it, Gabby? No. Don’t Gabby me because you chose business over me, Lee over me. The the woman that you supposedly loved. If you just let me put this all in context, Gabby, in, in context, in in what context could, you’re lying to me.

You’re manipulating my feelings. Ever make it forgivable? Okay, let’s get things straight. Second was on a slab heartless, and that was on a need to know basis because of business reasons. And then he gets a heart, Jake’s heart. So what was the business reason for you trying to pull the plug? Could you please put that in context for me?

But Dave, you know what? Don’t worry because Rolf. Explained everything. The, the, the brainwashing, the plug pulling, the whole thing. And then he drug me, which I’m sure you knew about, didn’t you, Gabby? I was desperate. I was deeply in love with you. I, I didn’t wanna lose you. Okay. Well now because you, you’re a lying bastard with zero integrity.

You have lost me forever.

We need access to Dara’s records. Proof they financed Ralph’s experiments and his relocation in Indonesia. Okay, well, we’ll figure out as soon as we get the warrant. All right, just call me as soon as you get it. Thanks. Uh, the mirror, the mirror’s enough about liars cover up the truth and they don’t tell you what you need to know until people you love are gonna die.

You know, I’m really sorry for what you’re going through, and I wish to hell that there was something I could do. There is, I’m gonna arrest Kristen right now.

You want me to go? Don’t, don’t, don’t act surprise. You know, the only reason you were living here was because you were holding that orchid over my head. Now two women are dead and a third may not make it, and you lost the only thing that could save her life. So, yeah, I want you Al What about Rachel? How is she gonna feel when she comes home from school and I’m not here?

Kristen. Rachel, we’ll be fine cuz she’s, And she will eventually understand why you cannot be a part of her life. You know, who’s not okay? Is Marlena. Marlena, my dad’s wife, she’s in the I C U dying, fighting for her life. And I don’t want my dad coming through that door seeing your face as a widower. So get, get out of here.

Now. I have nowhere else to go. How in the hell is that my problem?

Look, I know what I did was wrong. Are you really that arrogant, that diluted, that you think you’re just gonna say, whoops, I, I made a mistake, and then all is forgiven, Gabby, you know damn well what it’s like to cross the line when it comes to love. You and I are the same. We’re not afraid to take drastic measures when something’s truly worth the.

And you were worth it. Stefan’s not like us. He gave up on you. And that’s something that I will never do. He didn’t give up, Lee. He was, he was brainwashed by you. He didn’t have a choice. If he loved you enough, no amount of brainwashing could have stopped him. Face it, Gabby. Stephan never loved you the way I do, and he never will.

You have every right to to be mad at me, to judge me harshly, but deep down, you know why I did it? Because you would’ve done it too, proving that we are the same. We belong together and you.

Oh, you

obviously, we all thought it was strange when Stephan started showing up at my door with flowers and wooing me , especially when we all thought he was. Well and how much in love he was with Gabby, and I wasn’t interested in him. I only had eyes for Brady, but then Brady walked out on me and he went back to Kristen, and then there was Stephan.

There was Stephan literally knocking on my door, treating me like I was the best thing that had ever happened to him,

and lying there next to him in Miami for the first time in a long time, I stopped hurting and I was happy. Even just that moment. And then Gabby comes crashing in and she ruins that too. Chloe, I am so sorry. This is is such a mess. But even though that I’m here for you, I know. Thanks for listening. Always enough about me.

How was your New Year’s? Oh, ah.

Con Stephan, I’m sorry.

One would hope that family loyalty would trump your burgeoning relationship with Wendy, but hey, what’s done is done Right kid.

Now, no. Excuse me.

Thank you, Johnny. It’s one thing for Stefan to believe you are involved in the coverup, but I’m his brother. And he’s boss, well kept the secret this long. No reason to let it out now.

He didn’t really seem to care. It’s like, bro, you know, I don’t know. Maybe a that’ll change with time. The, uh, shock of knowing the truth will wear off. Uh, you know what, that’s Allie. I gotta take this AFI about Grandma Marlina. Allie. Hey, well, what, what’s happening? I, I was just about to.


Kristen claims she doesn’t know who could have stolen New York. If she’s playing dumb, she knows more than she’s letting on. I’m sure it so go and haul her ass in there and get it out of her. Eric, I don’t have any basis. I know you blame me for what happened between me and Nicole. Eric, I’m sorry. I really.

But don’t let my mother suffer because you’re angry with me.

I’m so sorry about Kayla, and, and please, please, please don’t tell Tate about Marlene yet. Thank you, Teresa. I’ll talk to you soon.

You don’t need to do this. Rachel’s gonna need her mother more than ever. Right? Because, uh, she might lose her grandmother cuz of.

You have nothing to say. You know what? I don’t. I don’t know why I let you get away with this for as long as you did. I was really worried that if I confided in someone that you would let them die, and here we are happened anyway.

Maybe if I put the screws in you a little harder. In the beginning we would’ve had the orchid and Kate and Caleb might still be here. I don’t want you to blame yourself for this. I don’t. Kristin, I blame you. I’ve made that abundantly clear.

Tell Rachel I. Love her.

Are you, are you kidding me? You think I’m supposed to say no harm, no foul and bygones and all that? You’ve tried to kill the man that I loved Lee, and then, and then you married me. Knowing what you’ve done. And you just want me to ride off to the sunset with you? No, th that’s not exactly what I’m Okay, stop.

Because you’re, apparently, you’re not getting the hint, so I’m gonna be blunt. Get the hell out. I’ll kick you out Gabby.

Allie just finished talking to Brady. Apparently Kristin’s been hiding an orchid here in the mansion. What? Yeah. Yeah. Down in the secret passages for months. And now that it’s needed to make a serum for grandma, it’s missing. Of course. Kristin, what the hell have you done? Yeah, she, uh, she swears she doesn’t know where it is.

The clock is ticking, right? Grandma’s getting worse by the minute. Nobody knows how much longer she has. We need that serum like now , there’s gotta be a way we can make more of it, right? Maybe Dr. Wolf would know.

Yeah, I need to go see break right now.

Eric, I underst. That you are worried about your mother and not just worried. You are desperate to save her, and I feel terrible for what you are going through. But please, no more plan. Amateur detective, next time you come to me, excuse me, for trying to get medical help from my critically new mother. I will follow up on every lead, but right now you are wasting my.

So if you really want me to help your mother, the best thing that you can do right now is leave.

I spent New Year’s with ej. Nothing happened. Not really. Anyway, so Eric, he’s sleeping with Sloan Peterson. . What? Yeah, I know. It’s, it’s insane. And we’re fairly speaking to each other. I just wish I could reach out to him with everything that’s going on with his family. What do you mean? Oh, th that’s right.

You just got back. You haven’t heard about Kate and Kayla and Marlena. Wait, what’s going on? What’s happening with them? Oh, uh, hold that thought,

Brady. Hey, uh, what are you doing here?

Oh, hey man. I heard about . I’m so sorry if there’s anything that I can do. Yeah, I, I, uh, I, I just found out from my sister that she’s in desperate need of this medication that comes from a rare orchid. It’s gone missing, but it’s possible. Dr. Roth could make more, we’re actually looking for him regarding another case, but, It’s tough going.

I know that’s why I came. Your search is over. I know where he is.

Can I talk to you alone? Alone? If, if, Yes, Freddie. Actually, I was, I was just leaving. Oh, Chloe, listen. Call me anytime. Okay? I mean it.

So, Brady, what do you want? I, uh, wanted to tell you the reason why I broke up with you. It had nothing to do with Rachel. Kristen had forced me to do it.

Christ, what the hell are you doing here? What the hell does it look like? I’m coming home.

Due to increases in the overseas third quarter market contraction, the commodities markets took a tumble finishing up only 10 points above last year’s market record low with treasury bills becoming more in demand due to European volatility, the Treasury Department has suspended trading on 10 year T-bills until opening up trading.

So that interest rates. Serena

Serena’s seven 20 and you’re not here, can you please call me and let me know that you’re on your way? I’ve left checks for the girls’ new school uniforms on the table and the new backpacks from the front hall closet. Alright, thank you Harry. Caitlin. Girls have a wake up. Come on, wake up. Um, it’s summer.

Jeez. Can this guy take a hint?

Sorry, Chad, my man. You aren’t interrupting us this time. Uh, Steph, it’s Chad. You, um, you gotta get to the hospital right away. It’s your mom.

Come on Steph. You don’t have much.


How you? I just went 10 rounds with a Leo. Oh, you look very beautiful to me.

You know, nothing should surprise us about Kristen, but I can’t believe that she would knowingly put three people’s lives at risk because of her obsession with Brady. Don’t worry about Kristen. Okay. What I need you to do is focus all your energy on beating this thing, getting better. I wish I had your.

If we don’t get a hold of that orchid, Sue,

don’t say it. Look at me


You need to keep the faith we have.

So Breeze searching for the orchid. Yeah. Yeah. In fact, he’s out there right now with a couple of black patch investigators.

It’s already thought that maybe Kristen is lying. Is the A being stolen? I wouldn’t put that pastor, you know, doc, as a general rule, I don’t put anything past Kristen, but I think she’s on the time.

Have to hope to find it before it’s too late.

You’s got, you’ve done everything medically possible Do. She’s gone. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. She’s God. The hope

like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

She looks like she’s,

we just founded a way back to each. We were gonna get a ride. We were gonna get a ride.

I’ll give you two. A moment alone.

Hey Dan. Yeah, I just wanna say that she, Mom told me many times how happy you made her. She loved you very much.


How many times have we overcome obstacles that we didn’t think were possible to overcome all these years? How did we do that? Huh? I’ll tell you our love.

Do I need to remind you the power of our love?

No, you don’t.


I need you to go take that. Kate baby. They have each other. I’m not gonna leave your side. Look, I’m fine. I’m, I’m, I’m really stable and I, I, I have my, uh, I have my trusty call button. Finding anything. No, but Kate, Kate, listen to me. Cake was worse than me. And I just, I just need you to go check on my brother and check on her and make sure they’re okay.

Please, please,

come on. Okay. If that’s what you.

This guy is relentless.

Sorry buddy. Not tonight.

Oh, worth the wait.


Doc, I have a theory. About who could have taken an or

who, who it, who. But the thing in.

You think Orpheus has the orchid, Doug? His reach goes far beyond prison bars. You could easily have had someone do it for him. Looks to me like it. Taking a trip to stay soon. No, no, no, no. I don’t feel comfortable believing you like this, . Come on. Eric is here if I need anything.

All right. I can take a quick run up there. Only if you’re sure that be okay till I him back. I will be fine. I will. Hang on. You

give strength.

I love you.

Forget it. I’ll come back later. Don’t leave on my account.

Was that your lovely mother I saw here earlier? I’d watch what you say about my mother. What? I’m just about to pay her a compliment. I gotta say Kate Usher looking well. No thanks to you. Excuse me. I know all about it. I know how you tried to kill my mom and her friends, Kayla and Marlena. Alright, take it easy.

You know there’s another way of looking at this. Even if I had, for the sake of argument, poisoned kitty cat, Kate, obviously it didn’t take, your mother is still alive. Like I say, well,

oh my love.

Oh, I wish I hadn’t wasted so much time. When are you from far? I am so sorry, Katie. I am so sorry that

I waited so long. To tell you how I felt, and I am so sorry that I couldn’t protect you

from Morpheus and Kristen. I hope that they just suffer in help forever for they did to you.

Okay. I love you so much. I loved you so much, and I will, I will forever. You will be in my heart and in my soul every minute of every day for the rest of my life. Oh my God, I, I will miss you so much. I will miss you so much.

Hey, man. Um, it’s my, it’s my mom. She, uh, She’s gone.

What’s wrong? Oh. If you’re worried about protection, don’t be Is this time, oh, I came prepared. Wow. Mm-hmm. . Well then that makes two of us. So it’s not the protection. What’s the problem?

I just really wanna make sure that you’re ready. I am definitely, are you Stephanie Johnson? I have been ready since the first moment I set eyes on you in the square.

I guess that’s. I guess so

a good check on Roman. I gotta go give my brothers and sisters a call, so thanks. Just take care of dad.

Chad, I’m so sorry, buddy. I know Kate loved you, loved you so much. She was always there for me. Were you able to reach Stephanie? I called her several times. I left messages. I, I haven’t been able to, to, to, she hasn’t called me back. No. I need her here. You go be with Roman and um, I’ll go find her. Do you even know where she is?

I think I have an idea. Yeah. Like, don’t worry, I’ll get her here.

Come in.

Hey, I had a puppy send over some chicken noodle soup for you. Thanks. I’ll try to get some down a little later on.

How are you feeling?

I’m better now that you’re here. But I’m worried.

Riley, I know you took Kristen’s daughter

and we all know how volatile she can be when she’s provoked, and wondering if you thought about that.

No. Maybe I should have, I guess. You know, was anybody that, that’s like playing with fire. I know. Okay. You know what? You’re right as always, and I know I should have be, especially since you have more experience dealing with psychopaths than anyone in this town. Hmm, you bet. And speaking of people that are unbalanced, John went to Statesville.

See? Yeah, he told me. Hopefully he has better luck getting through that am bastard about telling us where the orchid is than I had with Kristen.

You better be glad they found that serum in time to save my mom and her friends. And what was the drunken black sheep of the Horton family gonna do if they hadn? Pee on my shoes, like the pathetic wino. You are wino. Hey, knock it off. Just relax. Just having a bit of fun with Bill Horton’s bastard. Screw you.

En relax. Not with not worth it. John, what are you doing here? Well, isn’t it obvious he came to see his ex son-in-law, the Booz Hound, who kidnapped his stepdaughter? You know, John, I, I get that you’re applying for sainthood, but I gotta figure the man upstairs will cut you some slack if you let the village idiot rot in here.

Figure you got it wrong again, Mylo not here for Lucas, in your view.

Hey Roman, buddy. Hey, I’m so sorry.

You know, Kate and I had our differences. I know one thing we had in common was our love and respect for you. I know how good you two were for each other. I know how happy she made you. She did. Yeah, she did. I hope I made her happy too. Of course she’s okay. She’s hanging in there. Steve, she’s gotta make it.

I’m praying for her. And Mar and I know Katie would be doing the very same.

You’re here for me. Well hot. Color me both surprised and flattered to what do I owe this unexpected? Cut the crap. Well, you got the orchid. Where is it? The orchid. I don’t have it, John. Nor do I have the foggiest idea where it might be. You need another orchid? Why? What’s going on? Your mother, Kayla, and doctor sick again.

Apparently they needed additional shots from the original antigo, but the organ needed for the serum has come up missing. I gotta go to the corner. Wow. Well, I guess Christmas came late around here because you, John Black are definitely the bearer of good tidings.

You feeling any better? Hmm, that’s enough. I’m, I’m feeling about the same as the last. 10 times you asked me in the last 20 times, John asked me,

I wanna talk about you and your life. I wanna know what’s happened since, since the love of my life convinced the mother of my unborn child to have an abortion. Oh, Eric, I know. I know. That’s not exactly the trees. Jane insists that not going through the pregnancy was her decision, and somehow you’re blaming Nicole.

I just wish she hadn’t gotten involved after all. Well, and then what you’ve been doing is getting involved with. Bar room bras and planning kid nuggets. No crawling. I know how much you wanna have a family, and I, I know that you will have, I promise you, I just, I don’t want what’s happening with these two women in your life.

To that beautiful golden heart of yours,


hello. Yeah. Alex have the charges. Rex Lucas. I just saw John Lucas. Hey, um, I was just gonna call you Ja. John told me Mom’s sick again. What’s going on, Lucas? Stop. Listen please. I wish that I had better news and I wish to, I didn’t have to tell you this over the phone. Tell me what, over the phone, what’s going on?

It’s mom.


Ask Kate.

What? I’m sorry baby. I’m so sorry. Oh, oh my, my brother and uh, and he children and Steve. Yeah. I need to see our kids we’re, Stephanie, Chad went to find, he’s pretty


Steph, look, it’s Chad. I’m, I’m at the square right now. I’m at, and uh, I thought that you and Alex would be at the bistro.

Look, I, I, I didn’t wanna have to leave this voicemail, but I, I, I can’t find you anywhere and you’re not picking up the phone.

Kate’s dead. Oh. Just a little while ago. And your mom is really sick. So I need you to call me back, or I need you to get to the hospital right away. Okay.

My beautiful sister.

I am so sorry about it. Listen, I’m gonna go outside and make some calls, see if I can reach Jill and Trip, okay?

I asked Stu, Steve call her kids. I need to see them. I’ll see my brother. I’m so glad you’re here. So my heart just goes out for you. Lucy, Kate, I, I know how much you loved her. She made it easy. Not always. You’ve heard about that? Not always, but you know what, sis? Just time around. Let’s time around. Katie and I, we were able.

To appreciate each other more than ever, not take each other God. And I’m so grateful for that. And that our son was there with us, has been just been such a comfort. He’s gotta get through this because he has you as.

Well, I know about that, but what I do know, Kay, you couldn’t beat us,

Kay. I just lost my wife. I’ll be to him if I lose my baby sister too.

Do you understand him?

So let me get this straight. Kristen used the orchid to blackmail your dimmed son into playing house with her under your roof. And then she couldn’t even produce the damn thing because you saw from the Dard mansion where she had it hidden bastar. What is your problem? I’m gonna kill you. I’m gonna kill you.

Just like you kill my mother. Kate Crisis Sock DirectX is gone. She’s gone. And I’m gonna make you bang. Look at dirty. Hey. Not, not here. You saw that right? This attacked me not lawn. You are lawn horn. You wanna spend time with solitary? Hey, just take it easy on me. Just find out he lost his mother. I’m sorry, Katie.

I’m sorry man. I’m sorry. Can’t It’s ok. You try to get a chance and get a chance to say goodbye. No, no, no. Listen to me. She knew how much you loved you and I know for a fact how much she loved you, her kids, her grandkids, most important element in her life. Hold onto that. Okay? Alright. Now listen, I hate to leave you like this, but I’ve gotta get the doc.

Tell, I’m praying for I will. We’ll take care of yourself. You’re getting stay away from him.

How you feeling? More relaxed than I felt in a long, long time. , how’s that ankle? Mm, it’s worth a risk of re-injury.

Seth, Alex. Whoa. Should do it. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. What the hell are you doing in here? He, Henderson. Henderson, let me in. I, uh, Stephanie, I’ve been calling you, you, you’re not answering your phone. I, I, I didn’t get any calls. Yeah, we’re a little busy doing something. Chad, what could be so urgent that you to track me down here?

It’s, um, your mom. She’s in the hospital. She relapsed. What? What do you mean she relapsed? It seems that, that she and Marlena and Kate all needed more than just the original dose of the cure. It’s bad. Kate didn’t make it. I, I have to go to my mouth.

I can’t believe this man. I’m, what’s terrible about Kate? Just hoping Kela can pull through. I hope to God she does. I just wish I could have reached Stephanie sooner. I’ll meet you guys downstairs.

Hey. Hey, Sean, did you get any information out of Morpheus? Uh, no. No, no, no. I’m sorry. He said he denies no anything about an missing award, but it’s, we’re not, we’re not giving up on that though. My investigators. Staying right on top of the duck.

Just hope that Ca can make it through the night.

What’s wrong, John? He didn’t. Oh, oh no. Oh my God, no. Oh, Lucas was on the phone with, with Rex at the hospital. I was talking to her fist when he came back and he told us she didn’t make it. I go check on my dad and Aunt Kayla, please.

We got the boys on the line. Oh, good. You know what, uh, I’m gonna let you talk to, uh, Joan in private. Okay? Don’t go too far. I won’t, I promise. All right. I love you sis.

right. I have jam a meal, ginger and peppermint. Ah, I wasn’t sure what you liked . Thanks Chav. But you didn’t know what to go to all that trouble. Are you kidding me? It’s the least I could do. Considering you spent the entire day I skating with me and the kids. You know, I was coming down the stairs. I heard Thomas tell Jack that today was lit.

Oh my God. Where do you learn? What do you mean? Where did he learn that? When you have a dad as cool as me, you know, you pick up a few things. . Oh, well for the record, I also thought today was lit.

Yeah, me too.

I’m thinking maybe we should get you to a hospital. What now? What? And tell them that I sne. You heard Rex? Yes, I did. He said that my test results could mean that I’m relapsing, but they also might mean nothing. Yeah. And hopefully that’s the case, but I don’t want to take you to chances, so come on, let’s go get you checked out.

No, I don’t want to. I wanna stay here with my darling husband and have dinner. In fact, maybe you could make us some charter. I think that’s exactly what the doctor would order.

So what are you saying these blood test results mean? It doesn’t necessarily mean that you’re relapsing. Look, I know that you are trying to be optimistic, but there’s no denying these numbers. Kate, in my m i results were almost identical last fall, but, but the rate of decline is vastly acceler. What does that mean?

That means that Kate and I might be in trouble. I suspect that Marlay is too,

oh God, to think I trusted in your loyalty. You don’t know the meaning of the word loyalty. Come on God, just because I have a little compassion for the woman. Compassion. Compassion for a sociopath and disregard for your wife. No, no, no, no, no. Not true at all. I just think you’re being a little unfair here.

Unfair. Kristin is an evil lying bitch, and you take her word over mine. Do you know how that makes me feel? You know that I feel. I feel so utterly, utterly betrayed.

Really? Oh, I’m sorry sweetheart. I, I guess I just got caught up in the moment. Yeah, it’s, it’s okay. It’s okay. That’s why we’re rehearsing here. We wanna make this fight look as real as possible here. It’s the only way I’m gonna get Kristen to trust. Yes. And as soon as you do, I hope you can find out what she has over Brady.

I don’t understand. The arch is right here. I I, I just checked on it the other day. Stop, stop, stop. Stop lying. I’m not lying. Brady, somebody took it. This is another one of your tricks, isn’t it? No. No it isn’t. And you have to believe I’m done. I’m, oh, I’m. You understand? I don’t you find that damn flower right now, or you’ll never, never see Rachel again.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

What? You took a video of me falling on the ice. Yep. The total wipe out. I mean, your other fault we’re good, but this one was just epic and I promised the kids I would send it to them. No, no, no, no, no, no. You can’t do that because then they will use it against me forever. I don’t care. I’m sending it. Oh.

What’s wrong? Ah, just my ankle. You think it’s sprained? No, no, it’s just sore. It’s been a long time since I’ve skated. Uh, cool. Let me have it, what, get up here. I’ll massage it. You don’t have to do that. No, I want to. I want to. And, and then maybe you can, um, accidentally delete that video. Okay, maybe. Come on.

We’ll see how good your healing powers are. Careful.

So I don’t suppose you have any more of that serum. We only had one Viler begin with the lab, used some for their analysis, and then they administered the doses and there was just a little bit left. Not enough to cure one person, let alone three. We can’t be reproduced only with the orchid that we made it.

Okay, so we’re in the same boat as before. No, no. We’re at the mercy of whoever delivered that serum the first time around. No, because we are not gonna just sit around and wait for a miracle. We are gonna find some other viable treatment and we need to warn Kate and Marlene. I’m glad we put our plan on hold over the holidays.

I don’t like fighting with you, even if it is. I’m right with you, sweetheart. Well, let me tell you something. If this works, we may finally get Kristen out of Brady’s life. Good? Yeah. Hold on.

Hey, happy New Year, Eric. I you, Hey. Looks like you had a champagne incident. Ah, yes. Don’t like that. I’m sorry for popping your mic. This, but No, no, no. What, what brings you by? Um, I’m looking for Brady. Uh, can’t help you. We just got home from the in and he wasn’t here. By the way, thank you for volunteering to watch Rachel.

For us, it gave us a chance to have a love night on one . Yeah. I’m glad you enjoyed it. But to be honest, I had an ulterior motive. What does that mean? It gave me a chance to kidnap.

You quit playing games with me, okay? I am not. I’m not. Why would I do that? When you are threatening to take my child from me, which by the way, is a despicable heart listening to do. Are you kidding me? You’ve been holding Marlene’s life over my head for the, for the last couple months and Kate’s and Cas.

Yeah. Well, Rachel is an innocent little girl. Rachel, didn’t you think, didn’t you think I wanted to bring my little daughter? No, I did not. But you gave me no choice. Gimme the flower. Gimme the, give me the flowers. I can’t for last chance. Brady. Brady, I can’t. As you complain, you can. It’s not Kristen. Don’t will tell Rachel that you said goodbye.

No, Brady, please. You can’t do that. No,

I swear to you. I swear to you on Rachel’s life that I’m telling the truth. Someone stole the orchid police.

How does that feel? Pretty good actually. You really know what you’re doing. . I dated a physical therapist for a few weeks. It, uh, obviously didn’t work out, but. She taught me a thing or two. Clearly, my ankle feels better already. Glad I could help.

It’s Alex.

Hey. Hey. I didn’t think you’d pick up. Are you still mad at me? No, we’re good. Well good. That makes me happy. You know, I just wanted to call and apologize for being such a jerk earlier. I just keep getting this feeling that Chad keeps trying to find ways to spend time with you and I, anyway, it is behind us now.

I apologize and I hope we can just move forward. Already done. Good. So tonight you want to grab some dinner? Maybe I can pick you up at your. That’s okay. I’ll meet you somewhere. Okay. How about the bistro? The bistro? Perfect. See you soon.

Heading out, Alex and I are gonna grab dinner, but thank you for the massage and for today. It was, um, it was really fun. Yeah, anytime.

Who will steal the or, I don’t know. I really, I don’t know. There is a full house upstairs and any one of them could have wandered down here and taken the, or Kristin and Kristen, you, you, you had, you took the one thing that could, that could save Marlena and Kates and Kayla’s life, and you left it in an area where an army of people would have access to it.

How could you be that careless about someone? I, I, I. They are not supposed to. They’re not supposed Who? Who’s not supposed to what? Look, ej he, he decided to secure the tunnels after Leo Stark set up camp down here and, and the construction has been going on at since last fall. Yeah. I can tell. I can tell there’s construction going on.

Yeah. When I came down here, what is your point with all that? I just figured everyone would stay clear until the construction was done. Wow. Figured wrong because usually with construction, there’s a construction team that you know is around all the time while the construction is going on. He’s to you.

There’s some guy with a hard hat who has the orchid. He probably gave it to his wife, Kristin. No, no, no. It’s here. It has to be here, Brady. No, it look it. I know I’m sure. To somewhere in this house. For your sake. For your sake, hope to God it is

you. Kidnapped our granddaughter. You’re messing with me, right? No, Rachel is safe. She’s, she’s here in Salem and she thinks she’s having a fun adventure in Salem with who? She’s with a friend who’s completely trustworthy. Did Brady sign off on this? I, I wouldn’t have done it if he hadn’t. I promise you, mom, nothing happened or will happen that will ever bring trauma to her at all.

And this is all an act just for Kristen’s benefit. Oh. Why that Flying around? Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. But to involve her kid Rachel is fine. I believe that it’s just that something like this could push Kristen off the deep end. Absolutely. Much as I dislike that terrible woman, any mother being made to believe their child had been abducted mom, it’s the only way we can neutralize.

She’s been blackmailing Brady for months. She demanded that he break it with Chloe and forced him to move her in here. I knew it. I knew it all along. What in the world does she have over him? Your life?

Thanks, Kate here. Yeah, I will. Uh, I’ll tell her. I love you too. Bye. So I guess that’s not good news. Kayla’s test results were almost identical to yours,

so I guess we’re relapsing together.

Could you pass me the pepper? The pepper is next to the salt. This is bland. You’re gonna have to talk to your cook about that. Hey, this is serious. Yes, I know. I, I, I know it’s serious. I know that I’m getting sick again, and I know last time I almost died, but I didn’t, and I don’t intend to die this time either.

So just pass me the pepper and let me enjoy my dinner.

Roman is going to break the news to Kate and hopefully he’ll be able to convince her to come in for more tests. Yeah. Somebody tells me my mom’s gonna put up a fight. Oh, you know Roman will fight too. Yeah. Um, I should, I should call

Kayla. Kayla. Hi.

So, okay. No, no one is here except for Harold. And he hadn’t seen the orchid anywhere in the house. He said that, uh, no one’s been in the tunnel since the construction started. He’s sure about that. Positive. Positive. Now, we were all warned to stay away because of the toxic dust and all the other serious hazards.

And he said, um, the, the foreman, he ran a very tight ship. Mm-hmm. , uh, none of his, his workers would ever steal anything, especially from the Demaris. Well, you know what, Kristin, that, that brings everything back to you. For the last time, Brady, I did not move the, or maybe you got rid of it. And why would I do that?

Don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe, maybe outta spite. How about that? Oh, oh, really? So if, if I destroyed the flower, I wouldn’t have leverage over you and you know that I would never give that up. And besides, I don’t really want Marlene and the others to die. Well now they might. Then Mike, Kristen, because of your carelessness.

I’m sorry. And your selfishness. Okay. And your I’m Soutter Insanity about I’m thing. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I really didn’t want any of this to happen. Well, here we are, and if anything happens to those three women, their blood is gonna be on your hands.

So Christian’s the one that provided the. Only after Brady agreed to dump Chloe. You know, we’ve always known that she was manipulative, but I never believed she’d even go this far. You know, doc, I had these very suspicions months ago. Do you remember when I caught Brady going through Kristen’s things? Yes.

You thought he was looking for the serum. I was wondering if she got it from Rolf and was using it to blackmail Brady. That doesn’t make any sense because once we were all cured, Brady didn’t go back to Chloe. No, he bought Kristen here to stay with us. Why would he do that if the threat to us was over?

According to Christian, it’s not

claims that all three of you, you woman, are gonna need second shine and possibly a booster. What? She won’t, she won’t turn over the orchid that we need to make the serum unless Brady keeps doing what she wants. Oh God, I don’t have more shots. Oh, you, you feel you’ve been feeling okay? Haven’t Johnny?

Yeah, dog. Oh, excuse me, ma’am. Oh, excuse me. Goodness. I’m so sorry.

How you feeling? better. I just, I just got so dizzy all of a sudden. Yeah. Thank you.

You know what? You’re burning up. You have a fever. We need to admit you immediately. No, I have so much work to catch up on. I, I, I have messages to return. I’ve got charts to review. I cannot, all the people you care about would want you to take care of yourself. I cannot believe this is happening again. I don’t want you to worry baby.

Listen, we’re gonna beat this thing just like we did last time. There’s no doubt in my mind,

Hey, to beat this, you need to be in a place where they can do everything possible to make sure it doesn’t get worse now. No. What do you mean? No? No. I mean, no. I mean, I can’t go through that again. All right. The, the, the weeding and the fear and the, the wondering what’s gonna happen because that’s my idea of hell Roman.

I refuse to do it.

I can’t do that. Katie. Okay, I get that. Alright, I get that. It’s hard. Really hard. And I’m gonna be here with you and I will be with you every step of the way, as will your son and the entire team at university. And when we get you there, they’ll be able to monitor. You’re not listening. I will not go to that hospital.

Is everything okay? Chad? I’m glad you here. Maybe you can talk some sense into this one. What’s going on? Nothing. The virus at Orpheus infected her wrist is back. What? Okay. If she needs to get to a hospital as soon as possible, don’t you agree? It doesn’t matter if he agrees, okay, I’m not doing it. I’m not going to the hospital.

End of conversation. Okay, wait.

I’m sorry about the bistro. I had no idea that they were close for renovations. That’s okay. I, uh, I actually prefer what we scrounged up in the kitchen. A little grilled cheese and tomato soup. Yeah, it’s a classic. It is a classic. Especially on a cold night like this. Hmm. Stephanie? Um, . I just wanted to apologize for the way I was earlier.

I hate the way I acted. Jealous, insecure, territorial. I’m not that guy. Well, at least I wasn’t that guy until I met you,

Alex, I promise you have no reason to feel threatened by. Like I keep saying, we are just friends. Friends who almost hooked up not too long ago, but we didn’t, I was worried about my mom’s illness and he was still craving his wife. You know, he is gonna be ready to move on at some point maybe, but that has no bearing on our relationship.

I am with you, not Sha,

when are you gonna get that through your


hmm. . Okay. Key. Can you hear me? Key. She has a pulse part week. I need to call an ambulance. I’m not waiting. I’m gonna take her to the hospital right now. Call my sister. Tell ’em we’re coming. Okay. Hey,

come on. But yet, could you just hand me my tablet over there? I might as well do some research if I’m stuck here. Okay. Oh, don’t think you should try to relax. No, it’s not. There is someone out there who may have found a different way to treat this disease, and I’m gonna find out who that is. Oh, sorry, Chad.

Hi, Chad, everything okay? Uh, no. No it isn’t. Um, uh, I’m at the pub and Kate just passed out. Roman told me to let you know that they’re on their way to the hospital now. Okay. Okay. We’ll be ready for her.

Uh, I’m sorry I tell you this, but your mom passed out of the pub and your dad’s bringing her in. Okay. Um, I’ll meet them downstairs.

You need a calm lady,

sweetheart. That’s, that’s the second time you sneeze today. Oh, okay. It’s probably nothing dying. Yeah. Do you think that Christian was lying when she said that everybody would need additional doses? Brady doesn’t think so, but he wasn’t willing to chance it. Brady, he’s sacrificed so much giving up the woman that he.

How could Kristen be so cruel? Why didn’t Brady just tell us what Kristen was holding over him? Because it was part of the terms. Brady didn’t keep quiet. She was gonna destroy the orchid who told me in the moment of frustration. So it was your idea to force her hand for Brady to tell her that she will never see her daughter again unless she forks over that.

It should be Richard and or as her feet. Oh man, I dunno about this here. Kristin’s such a, a loose cannon between this whole blackmail thing blowing up in her face and being rested for brainwashing her brother here. The walls are closing in. This whole damn thing can go sideways in a hurry. Hey, we’re gonna find out soon enough.

What happened?

Where’s he working? It’s gone.

This is nice being on the ice all day, even in the sun. I was freezing. Mm. I’m glad I could warm you up.

It’s gotta be. At least 10 below out there kind of dreading going home.

So don’t

stay the night. I mean, if you want to, of course there’s no pressure

actually. I really like that.

Listen, you have got to go call John in Marlena. Okay? I will in a minute. I just wanna make sure you’re okay first. I am fine. Now it just makes me so angry that even from behind bars, Orpheus is still wreaking. Hav on our life. Don’t say his. Listen to me. We’re gonna figure this out. I promise you. Listen, I am all for optimism, but we need to be realistic.

We survived last time because we got lucky. Someone anonymously dropped off the serum. I wish I could find out that who that person was. Yeah, I dropped the ball on that one. I was just so happy that the three of you were okay. You cannot blame yourself. We were all just so relieved that that nightmare was over.

Well, let’s just hope that whoever it was gone through for us, again,

we searched the. Damn house in the orchid, isn’t there? Well, maybe it wasn’t there in the first place. Maybe she has it hidden somewhere else. She says that she doesn’t. Yeah, right. Okay. I don’t know what happened to it, I swear. And why should we believe you? Because your son threatened to take off with Rachel and I wasn’t willing to risk losing her.

We didn’t have any problem risking the lives of three women to give what you wanted. You didn’t have any problem taking. Marlena, Kate and Kayla’s kids away from them. You know why that is? Cause you’re still a monster. You as twisted and s Okay, John, I mean, you have quickly just turned on me. I’m guessing that, uh, Brady and Eric aren’t the only ones who are, who are putting on a show you.

It’s obvious that you are the one who took my daughter. Yeah, I know that Brady arranged for you to be with her that night. You did it. You. Or a bunch of liars. You have no right to the moral high ground. Do you know what Marlena? All I’m doing is trying to get my family back. He never tried to take Rachel away from you.

He tried to be reasonable about the custody. But you know what? There’s no reasoning with you because you are deranged and you are pathetic. Kristin, what the hell? After all these years, you’re still coming after my family. And now you have put your own daughter in the direct line of fire. No, no, no, I didn’t.

Mother, son, you sit free, drink goodbye to for a. If we really lost that orchid, little Rachel could lose her grandmother. How do you think that’s gonna make her feel when she finds out that you were responsible for that? She’s not only endangered the lives of three women, you caused your daughter so much pain.

You traumatized her to know him that. That wasn’t enough. Only cause of your damn sick obsession with my son.

Maybe. Maybe we’re enough. Maybe. We’ll, we’ll find, we’ll, we’ll, we’ll find out. There’s all this stuff. I mean, maybe we’ll find the orchid. I What if we don’t, I don’t know. What if we don’t? What’s the plan then? What if the symptoms come back? Steve? Hey partner. Where do I feel you on what’s going on here? Hey.

Is Marlena feeling okay? And she’s fine. Why? I have some bad news.

Oh, Rex Mom. Hey, hey. How you feeling? I didn’t wanna go to the hospital. I know, I know. I’m sorry For whatever it’s worth. We took a vote when you were on the floor of the pub and you lost.

It’s bad, isn’t it? I am just glad that you are here.

It’s so strange. I felt fine. Seems like a moment ago, and now I wake up here. I feel so weak. It’s happening faster this time. Just rest. Okay, just rest. I’m gonna take good care of you.

Will you do me a favor? Anything?

Don’t lemme die here.

Babe, is your leg okay? Uh, yeah. It’s just my ankle. It’s been a long time since I’ve skated. Oh, well, I can massage it for you. Oh, that’s okay. Chad, already, Chad gave you a massage. Okay. It wasn’t like that. I swear. Okay. Okay. Okay. I’m not jealous at all. I just don’t want to spoil the mood. Oh, is this how I get you to behave?

Hmm. It’s promise of sex. Well, I prefer to think of it as making. Love . Hey, now you definitely spoiled the mood. Just stop. Roger that

sweetheart. We’re gonna need to get you to the hospital, honey. It was a couple of us knees. I’ll be fine. Steve said Caden. Caleb were fine too, right before they passed down. Ju just let me at least get you off your feet. Okay? Honey, please just do this for me, please. Sure. Okay, I’ll lie down. Okay? Yeah, come on.

Uh, if you hadn’t been playing your games, the doctors could have found a cure by now. And if anything happens, Kate or Kayla and they don’t make it, that’s on you and Amy. That’s just not my invention. I I, I was planning to turn the orchid over at the first sign of any symptoms

We need to find that way. Yes, and I do wanna find that orchid as well, but guess. There is a, uh, pressing matter at hand. Really? What’s that? I want my daughter back now.

My sister had the orchid the whole time. Yeah. But according to John, it’s gone. So Kristen knew that Kate and the others would need another dose and didn’t say a word. If she’d have given us that damn flower at the start, we’d be in the clear. What the hell is wrong with her? Well, apparently she’s using the orchid to control Brady.

In other words, playing games with people’s lives. Yeah, and that means that the women we love could pay the price. Mom, I know you do not want to be here, but this is the best possible place for you right now without an attitude. Look. Doing research. We’re talking to experts. We’re doing everything in our power to find another cure.

I thought we were cured. I know with dad it only took one dose and I just assumed that. I’m sorry. I need to really, I’m so sorry. I need help. Please don’t do that. Don’t blame yourself. Is there anything else I can do for you? Besides let you go home

Call your siblings, tell them not to come. I


I feel so strange. Strange how? Mom? Mom, which crew? I know. Mom, can you hear me? Treat.

Hello? I love you.

You think could have stolen the orchid? For what reason? I, how the hell do I know? Kristen? I’m just asking you if it’s possible. Well, he’s halfway around the world. I don’t see how he.

Mommy. Oh my gosh, sweetheart. Oh gosh. Are you all right? Yeah, but I missed you. Oh, honey, I missed you too. I’m glad. So we couldn’t come home because you and daddy were sick. He told you that. Are you better now? Yes. Sweet. Yeah, your daddy and I are perfectly fine. Wish we could say that about everybody else.

Had to go break the news to Kayla about the orchid. Is there anything I can do to help? Actually, yeah, you could, uh, call Stephanie for. I’m sure she’s gonna want to be here for her mom. Absolutely. I’ll call her. I’ll call her right now.

I’m right.

So Kristen had the orchid all along and she lost. Oh, I’d like to throttle her right now. I’d like to do a lot worse. We’ll figure out a way to make her pay as soon as you’re all better. Did you find anything useful in here? No, nothing. I combed all through the research on this disease, any kind of other treatment, and there is nothing.

So without the orchid, we’re doing everything we can to find that right now. And in the meantime, unless some of that serum might show up, I just don’t know how long we go. Wait,

I’m scared, baby. The fight isn’t over yet. You can’t give up. You know what? You and Kate and Marlena are the strongest women I know. This disease doesn’t have a chance against. You’re all gonna be fine. I just know it.

All right, one more time. Claire. Oh god. Doctor, it’s time to car. No, no, no, no. Do it again. Try it again, Rex. Try it again. The more we can do. Time of death. 8 0 2. No, no. Don’t stop. I’m sorry. I’m sorry, dad.

Again, shh. Can this guy take a hit?

Sorry, Chad, my man. You aren’t interrupting us this time. Uh, Steph, it’s Chad. You, um, you gotta get to the hospital right away. It’s your mom.

Come on Steph. You don’t have much time.

Thank you. Here we go. Thank.

How you feeling? Sweetness. Look, I just went 10 rounds with a Ali. Oh, you look very beautiful to me. Always.

You know, nothing should surprise us about Kristen, but I can’t believe that she would knowingly put three people’s lives at risk because of her obsession with Brady. Don’t worry about Kristen. What I need you to do is focus all your energy on beating this thing, getting better. I wish I had your

What if we don’t get a hold of that orchid soon?

Don’t say it. Look at me.

You need to keep the faith we have to.

So breathe out. Searching for the orchid. Yeah. In fact, he’s out there right now with a couple of black patch investigators.

It’s already thought that maybe Christian is lying about the orchid being stolen. I wouldn’t put that pastor, you know, doc is a general rule. I don’t put anything past Kristen, but I think she’s on the level this time.

Have to hope to find it before it’s too late.

Damn. He’s got, you’ve done everything medically. Do more, do more, do more. She’s gone. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. She’s God

like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

She looks like she’s,

we just founded a way back to each. We were gonna get a ride. We were gonna get a ride.

I’ll give you two. A moment alone.

Hey Dan. Yeah, I just wanna say that she, Mom told me many times how happy you made her. She loved you very much.


How many times have we overcome obstacles that we didn’t think were possible to overcome all these years? How did we do that? Huh? I’ll tell you how. Our love.

Do I need to remind you the power of our love?

No, you don’t need to


I need you to go take that. Roman Kate, baby. They have each other. I’m not gonna leave your side. Look, I’m fine. I’m, I’m, I’m gonna be stable and I.

hot stone massage was exactly what I needed.

I think it was a good idea coming to the end for New Year’s E.

Something wrong. I’m reading a very disturbing message from Gray. You’re not even gonna believe what Kristen has done now,

my God. How can this be happening? Kristin? Just come and sit. I can’t sit Brady. I can barely breathe. I mean, whoever took her, why? Why haven’t they made a a ransom demand? Why haven’t they, why haven’t they told us what they need from us? We were told to wait for further instructions. We just need to be patient.


Our daughter has been kidnapped to Brady. Okay? She should be hurt or worse after what we went through to be a family. Like we can’t lose her. And Brady we won’t. We won’t. Why are you so calm when you wait? How can you be so sure? How come Uncle Jar didn’t make me a try? Sarah, top sandwich. He didn’t even cut off my crust.

Are you not hungry, sweetheart? I don’t like chunky peanut butter. I can make you something else. After all, it’s not like I didn’t already aid in a bed enough. Felony against my will. What’d she say? I couldn’t. I just said, um, how about a grilled cheese sandwich? Would you like that? No. Thank you. Um, well, how about we watch Jurassic World?

I wanna go home.

I, I thought you were having. Well, I’m not now, but you the kid. Yeah. You and Sloan though. You were supposed to do a makeover. I don’t want a makeover. Come on. It’ll be so much fun. I wanna go. You hurt the kid, you know, like you can’t. Why not? Yes. Eric, why? Please explain to Rachel why she can’t go home.

You know, my New Year’s resolution is one of them anyway. What’s that? I’m to stop at the first bottle of champagne. Okay. We did have a lot to celebrate this year. No, I know that my look. Hey there. Hey, guess what? Good news, the prison is taking visitors again. So I’m going to go see Lucas this afternoon. Do you wanna come?

I, I would love to, but we have something very important we need to discuss. First,

I have your test results.

Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

So, uh, I can see that I have elevated liver enzymes. Again, low uric acid. Mm-hmm. . And you remember last fall, those levels return to normal after you received the serum.

So does that mean that you think I’m relapsing? No. No, not necessarily. How are you feeling? Well, I mean, I feel fine except for a little hangover. So is there anything else that could cause abnormal results for teeth? Well, if you’ve been overindulging on eggnog, that would certainly affect your liver function , but I assume you do wanna run more tests.

You’re gonna show antibodies for this virus for the rest of your life, so we can’t test for reinfection. So what can we do? I wanna run identical tests on Kayla and Marlena and see if we get similar results.

Okay. What did Kristen do now? Oh, I’m not sure. Doc Brady says he thinks we ought to hang out here a little bit longer. Oh, well did he say. No, all he said was he had a pretty rough night because Kristen has been arrested for brainwashing her own brother.

I’m calm because I have to be. All right. Rachel needs us to keep clear heads here. Okay. But what, what, what can we do to find her? I, I mean, I know that we’re not supposed to get the cops involved, but there’s gotta be something that we can do expressing Chris and my dad is on the case. I’m in constant contact with him.

He’s chasing leads as we speak and, and Eric is looking for her as well. Sweet, sweet baby. I mean, she’s gotta be so scared. Kristen. What you are is exhausted. Okay. I think if you lied down for a couple minutes, you would wake up. We have some, no, I can’t. I can’t. I can’t even sit still. I know this is, I know it’s, I just, I love her.

I love that little girl so much. No, I really just couldn’t believe that this is happening again.

Well, you can’t go home right now, sweetheart, because. Well, because your mommy is sick and she doesn’t want you to get sick, then why can’t my daddy pick me up? Yes, Eric. Why can’t he? Because your daddy, he’s sick too. No, of course. Yay. Yay. That means they must have kissed on midnight. That’s how you attract germs.

You now. Yes, we do know that. Why don’t you take this plate and bring it into the kitchen now? Okay. I can. And grab a cookie while you’re in there. There’s some on the counter. I can,

I would. She’d be transmitting germs to me right now, but instead I’m stuck babysitting a stir crazy kid. Not that you gave me much choice in the matter. I’m sorry. I promise I’m gonna make it up to you. Yeah, you’d better if I get caught. I could be disbarred for this. Something. You’re not gonna get caught.

Well, I’m not as sure as you are. I mean, I need this to be over it today, Eric. Otherwise, you gotta come up with a new plan.

So, I mean, this isn’t really an emergency though, right? Because you, you took the blood samples on Christmas Eve and I still feel fine. Yeah, I mean, it’s, it’s definitely a reason to be optimistic. No doubt. But given what you went through, I just, I just wanna know what we’re dealing with. Yeah, we’d like to know that too, son.

Maybe give us, uh, some peace of mind. Hey. Hi. Hey, you too. Welcome home. Thank you. It’s good to be back. Yeah. Good to be back. Happy New Year everybody. Good to see you, Rex. Same here. Steve. Why does everybody look so serious? We have some news and it’s not good.

Drugging and, and brainwashing people. Will it ever stop? No one can only hope. You know what surprises me is that he was taking his odors from, from, from Lee and Christian. Yeah. Lee was at the helm of Dira and he and Kristen kind of share the same goal. Yes. But what was Kristen’s Motivat? Well, apparently she figures if Stephan pursues Chloe, that opens up a path for her and Brady as it cleans out.

She was right, Brady. It’s always about Brady. Everything she does ends up going back to her obsession with him.

Hey. Stop, stop. Stop. Kristen. Kristen, look at me. Look at me. Take a deep breath. No, I’m sorry. No, no, no, no, no. This is, this is a parent’s worst nightmare. No, it’s worse because I keep blaming myself. What? Why, what? Why about what you said last night. Maybe sh someone took her because they wanted to get back at me.

Do you think that’s the truth course? No, it was, it was a theory. All right. I, I shouldn’t have said anything. Oh my god. What? Sarah Horton? Sarah? Yes, yes, yes. She, she made that house call when Rachel was sick a few weeks ago and, and, and it was obvious that she felt a connection with our daughter. Still. No, never.

You’re grasping. No, it just makes sense, Brady. It makes total sense. And I bet you Xander helped. I’m gonna go over there right now. No, no. Hey, let’s look, look, leave me. No, you don’t need to do that. I will make some calls, I’ll make some inquiries. All right. But right now you need to get some rest. All right.

Please just go to bed, get under the covers and try to relax. No, buddy. No, no. I, I, I wanna be here. When you make those calls, I listen. You don’t need to be, you don’t need. As soon as I get some information that’s helpful, I will give it to you immediately, but right now you need to get some rest. I can see that Rachel would not want you getting sick over this.

Okay? Okay. I’m gonna try, try it. Go.

I know I’m asking a lot of you, but it won’t last much longer, the better not.

There she is. Did you take a cookie? Yes, I did. I took two . Great. I’m Lyric. Yeah. Can I please call mommy and daddy now? Well, they’re resting right now. Wait, I promise you can talk to him soon. In the meantime, how about that makeover? Hmm. gonna be fun, I promise. Should we? Okay. , why don’t you run to my bathroom, get my makeup bag, and you can pick out your three top favorite eyeshadow colors.

Okay. I hope you have purple. I’m sure I do.

You’re welcome. Thank you. Listen, I know I kind of tricked you into this. Tricked me. You lied to my face. You’re right. I’m, I can’t believe what a skilled liar had become. Well, you’re lucky that I’m madly attracted to you otherwise, that had turned you in already. Yeah. Well, you break client and attorney privileges.

Mm. Don’t push it. Promise I wont. I will. Call my brother and tell him that Rachel is homesick and we kind of need you to move to the next phase. Good idea. Hey, it’s Brady right here. Okay? Remember next face. Okay. Hey, Brady. Hey, how’s Rachel? Um, well, she is missing you. She’s a bit homesick. So I told her that mommy and daddy had colds.

Right. Hey, listen man, I know you wanted to, uh, keep this thing going a little longer to make sure the Kristen was desperate enough to fold, but to tell you the truth, I think sh I don’t think she’s gonna get any more d. She is right now. She’s coming up with these wacky theories that I have to pretend to investigate.

John and Marlena, they’re trying to stall them, but they’re gonna come home any second. That’s gonna complicate everything. I think we should pull the trigger on this and make the demand of Kristen. Now, I was about to say the same thing. Good. I’m glad we’re on the same page because the sooner we get this orchid, the sooner I can get my daughter back and we can put an end to this whole thing.

I assumed that one dose of the serum would keep the illness at bay forever, and it was a reasonable assumptions the way the virus acted with me all those years ago. Kind of a dad, your cure was different. It was derived from a rare species of orchid that’s now extinct. And a cure for Kayla and Mom and Marlena.

It was mysteriously dropped off at the police station in a vial. Damn. I should have tried harder to find out who our anonymous benefactor was. Oh, now look, we, we don’t need to panic. We don’t even know if anyone’s sick. Right. I think the first thing we do is I go to the hospital with Rex, we drop my blood and see what we find.

Okay. Um, we’ll put a rush on the labs. No, you know, better yet, let’s just do it ourselves. All right. Well, how long will that take? Uh, later today. Tomorrow, with the latest we’re about in my. You know what? Let’s just, let’s just give her a little time with John. You know, I mean, I mean, why worry her until we actually know what’s up?

John, you don’t suppose that Kristen had Ralph Brady, do you? No, no, no. Now, if Brady were brainwashed, he would be a lot more enthusiastic about having Kristen in our house. Like he’d be, uh, sleeping with her instead of like walking around with this dark cloud over his head. You have a point there. Yeah. He made it clear he broke up with Chloe, move Chris into our house because she didn’t give him a choice.

She’s holding something over his head.

You know, I almost feel bad about putting Kristen through all this. Hell, but I gotta keep reminding myself of why we’re doing it. Well, there couldn’t be any better reason than saving three women’s lives, right? If Kristen’s telling the truth about they’re needing another dose of that serum, and look, Eric, look, once we make the demand, For the orchid.

Kristen’s gonna know that it’s coming from me because I told her that I would never tell another soul. So I’m gonna have to be really careful about the way I break the news to her so she doesn’t go off the deep end. Isn’t she already there? Yeah. Yeah. But she can always go further. She can always get a little more cruel, a little more vindictive.

She’s gonna go nuts when she finds out that I was the one behind the kidnapping of Rachel. I gotta be really, really careful about finding the right moment to just drop the bomb on her. I think you just did.

Okay. I’m going to go see Lucas now and Rex can just go another time. I’ll drive you. No, you don’t need to drive me. I’m just, I’m fine. I’ll, I’ll call you as soon as I. Please do. Okay, Katie. I love you. I love you too. See you later. See? See ya.

So can I get you? No, I’ve kind of lost my appetite. Yeah. Sorry you had to come back to this. Yeah. Now Roman, I hate to think the. Good for these women to suffer through that horrible illness again. I mean, can’t let that happen, Steve. No, we can’t. Yeah.

You think you could do that for me? Yes. Yes, of course. You know, I’m just curious, what made you decide to run the test on your mom when she wasn’t exhibiting any symptoms? Honestly, I’m just checking boxes, submitting data to the FDA to show that the treatment’s still working. And how are you? Me? Yeah, you.

I hope that I didn’t fail my mom. Hope I didn’t fail. All three of you.

The only, we could figure out what Kristen is holding over Bray’s head. Mm-hmm. . And then we could get him out of this situation. We could get her out of our hole. Oh, please. Yeah. But you know, the, the real mystery is why we’ve been asked to stay here, you know, a little while longer to accommodate Christian.

What is that? Mm. Uh, you know, it’s not like it’s real hardship though. I mean, being alone with you like this on our little. Staycation. Mm. Yeah. A hardship at all. You know what I was thinking? Maybe you and I can make some real productive use of this time together. What do you think? I think that’s a idea. I love the way you think

she’s right here. I gotta go. I was hoping you’d be able to get some sleep. Yeah, I bet you were. Look, I don’t know what you overheard, Kristin. Oh no. Let me fill you in. What I heard was that my suffering, my being sick to death with worry about Rachel is all on your head. What the hell did you do with my daughter Brady?

So, Way on to the next phase. Brady’s telling Kristen as we speak and I’m sure she’ll be ever so understanding. She’ll undoubtedly understand that she’s been tricked and she’s living in the hell. We just need to hope that there’s no weapons in close proximity and all this will be worth it. Rachel time for the big reveal.

Wow. You look beautiful. Look at me. I am. You look gorgeous. I’s gonna get a Sloan a makeover. But she had a better idea. Yeah. And what’s that like? It’s your turn.

Answer me, damnit. Where is Rachel? Where is she? Rachel is fine. And where is she? I’m not telling you why. Why are you doing this? Brady? You really gave me no choice. I gave you no choice. I don’t know what the hell you talking about. Come on your devious little mind. Can’t figure this one out. I needed leverage on you, so I took Rachel and you are not gonna get her back until you hand over the.

Oh, baby. Oh my gosh. . Bless you. I’m so sorry, . It’s a real mood breaker. Isn it, I’m sorry. It’s a, it’s a, but Julia gets me every time. Oh, oh, oh, wait, wait, wait. You know what? Hold on. Hold on.

Here. I got that from the, what is it? Ba

Aphrodisia Paradise. . Come on. Let’s see. It’s up to its name. Oh, so what are you already angling for? Another massage. Is that it? Have you met me? Yeah. . Yeah. We roll over

A little there a little bit. No, no, no. Don’t look. Okay. You look kind of, you look kind of edgy and beautiful. Hmm. What do you think?

It’s not, not bad , but now it’s time for the lips. What are you gonna do with my lips? Oh, None these colors really suits you in Glas. No. Oops. Um, you know, listen, I’m really starting to agree with Rachel here. Oh no, don’t worry. It’s just gonna be a nice ENT slip. Balm. We got a little chap there. We just can’t have that.

Oh no. How crap. Oh yeah. Oh, this is beautiful. Uncle Eric. Oh, you can’t do this? Mm, I already have. She don’t give a damn, do you? The hell? You put me through the hell you put your daughter on. Rachel is fine and she’s in very good hands. Okay, well, whose hands? Who’s the other accomplice and who, who is on that phone?

Just. You’ll never know. Oh, you are never gonna get away with this. You think I put you through hell do you? What about the hell that you’ve been putting me through? Hmm. What about Chloe? Oh god, please. Chloe. Oh, I’m, she sure she is having a grand old time basking in the afterglow with her new adoring lover.

Watch it. Yeah, I’m sure they’re both undoubtedly on cloud nine right now. But you, Brady, you have screwed yourself big time because not only. Has your little slutty girlfriend moved on, but you’ve effectively lost your daughter? What? Yes. You think a judge is gonna let you have custody AF of Rachel after this stunt?

Except no judge is ever gonna know about this. The fact is, Chris in the bottom line is screwed yourself. When you decided to play with those three women’s lives, you put this all on yourself and you pushed me to do this. And if you wanna see Rachel ever get oh kiss. It’s very simple. You hand over the orchid to me, she comes home in a heartbeat.

But if you don’t, I promise you, you will never see her again.

I could stay like this with you forever. Nothing. I’d like more. Do you know what doc? My alarm’s going off. It’s time to go home. No. Can we, can we push back our checkout time? I already did that by an. Well, maybe we could do it for another hour.

That’s very tempting. But you and I, we need to get home and see if we can find a way to help out

back to the real world.

Sweetness, how you feeling? Uh, the same as I was 30 minutes ago. Rex is in the lab. He said that the test results should be back in minutes. I’m on my way. No, you, you don’t need to do that. I’ll be right there. Thank you.

Link and they give you a heart touch. AWS so nice. I’m gonna give daddy one minute. Get home. Your daddy will love it too. And I can give mommy a matching one. Your mommy could definitely use a heart. I’m excited about mommy and daddy. Well, we, we really don’t know what happened between them last night. I do.

They kissed for sure. And soon they’ll get married. Yeah. Well, I know that’s what you want, but Rachel, honey, why don’t you go wash the makeup off your hands, okay?

Really? You wanna get the kids hopes up about her parents? Yeah, I know that’s what you want, Rachel. I didn’t know what else to say. Well, I’m sure you could have come up with something. I mean, she’s gonna be in a world of heartbreaking when she finds out the. That her daddy hates her mommy, and they’ll never get married.

Look, my mother’s life is at stake, so is my stepmom’s and my aunt. So if this is what it takes to save them, not to mention getting Brady out from underneath her thumb that it’s all gonna be worth it. You won’t do it. You wouldn’t dare. It would break Rachel’s heart if you keep her from me. Then why don’t we just do this the easy way.

Just give me the orchid. Oh, right, right, right. And then you can just kick me out of the house. Go running back to Chloe if she’ll have you, which I doubt. I guess we’ll find out, won’t we? No, no. Brady, we won’t. You bring Rachel back to me or I’ll let those women die. Is that a chance you’re willing to do?

You don’t want to threaten me. I will threaten you right back. You go ahead and withhold that orchid, but you are never gonna see your kid again.

Is that a chance that you wanted to?

Let’s go.

Any chance to come up for air? Baby, I’ve been gone for weeks. I’ve, I’ve got a lot of catching up to do it. And, and if, if I’m gonna be outta commission again, I, if that’s even a possib. Is this how you want to be spending your time?

No. Come here.

Well, it’s the same abnormalities that were in Kate’s blood work. But you’re still feeling fine, aren’t you? Yeah, I feel fine right now, but

oh dear God. Oh, come on. So you sneeze. So, That doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Right? Um, that’s how the illness presented itself the first time in all three cases. What do you say in Rex? I hope that I’m wrong, but I But you’re not. We both know. You’re not. We both knowing it.

Hey, you. Hey. Any news? Kayla called Steve. What did she have to say? Well, she uh, said they should have the results soon. So Steve went to be with her and, uh, we should all know something sent. How’s Lucas? Wow. He.

Hopefully quiet in here. Well, maybe Brady persuaded Kristen to leave. He, uh, if only all, let me take these up. Sit right back. Thanks him.

Oh, oh darn. Massage oil. Okay. Where is everybody?

You kept the orchid here. Yeah. I mean, where else would I. I’ve heard of hiding things in plain sight, Kristen, but this is ridiculous. Who else is in on this? No one?

Well, where is it? Follow me.

Is that from. Did something happen? It is from Brady. You’ll be happy to hear. The Christian is apparently taking him to get the organ. So this is gonna be over today? Yes.

I believe I didn’t figure this one out. Figure what out. Anything. Everyone is always hidden in the Demara Secret room.

The orchid is right here,

right where, oh my God, it’s.

luck tracking now, Rolf? So far every lead just brings us straight into another dead end. Okay, we’ll keep at it. We need to find this guy. We need to get him to admit what leash in did to Steph. Oh, almost forgot the messenger. Dropped us off for you.

Oh, everything okay? Yeah, it’s from my attorney,

my divorce papers.

You wanna divorce Sander? I don’t want to divorce him, but what choice do I have now that he’s done what he’s done and lied to me about it? Well, sir, I, I, I know how hurt you are, but is it, is it possible that, well, that you’re overreacting? Overreacting mom. He kidnapped two women and he committed multiple felonies in the process, and now one of those women is dead.

So if anything, I am Underreacting. Sarah’s telling everyone that Xander is the kidnapper. Who exactly do you mean by everybody? Okay. I may have rounded up. It’s not an exact figure. Well, can you give me an exact figure? Well, I just, oh, for God sake, Maddie, can you just tell me please, I need to understand who knows?

The first starter, Sarah’s mother. Maggie knows. And Bonnie. And Justin too. And believe me, they were not too happy about what Xander did.

What buddy? Okay. He’s just lucky I didn’t go. Thanks. Think. Hey, I’m the one who should be complaining. You got some rock hard abs dude. Are you done what hitting him for now? It’s a relief. This isn’t over, kiddo. We’re just getting started here. It’s what do I owe this bruising. Are you seriously gonna sit there and pretend you don’t know what you.

Sarah told us everything. Andrew. We know what you did to me and you are gonna pay for it. Now,

Steph, what’s going on? Why are you upset? I heard you talking to Chad just now telling him that he needed to back off because you and I are together. Okay? You heard that? I heard that. All right. Well I just thought, you know, it’s a workday and I didn’t think it was really appropriate of him to ask you to go to To what?

Stop by to see his friend take a few hours off to go to the park with his kids. Okay. Alright. Alright. I think there’s been a little bit of a misunderstanding. You’re damn right there has been. You have no right to tell me who I can’t and can’t see from not your property.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

No, Steph, of course I do not think that you are my property. But you think it’s your right to tell Chad to stay away from me? That’s not what I was saying, babe. No, no. Then how would you describe that conversation? I would describe that conversation as Chad not being completely honest about his feelings for you, because he had romantic feelings for you before and I’m not sure he’s over.

Well, I am sure he has made it very clear that he’s not ready to be with anyone yet because he’s still in mourn. Ah. Yet he still finds ways to spend time with you. We work together. He shows up at Christmas with gifts for you. Then he asks you to go ice skating with him and his kids on Workday. He didn’t ask me.

Thomas and Charlotte ask me. Oh. Just like the gifts at Christmas were from the kids. Are you accusing Chad of using his kids to get close to me? No. No, no. Of course not, but I do think what he’s taking advantage of the situation.

You defending Xander to me. I’m not defending Xander’s actions, I’m just saying before you take such a drastic step like divorce, that you should consider the factors that drove Xander to such a terrible decision factors. So being in debt justifies kidnapping Two women. Oh, nothing justifies that, but I, I.

I believe that sand never meant to hurt either one of them, don’t you? I, I want to believe that honey, let them go, didn’t he? Not right away, but eventually, right? Oh, we should get him a medal. He didn’t intentionally hurt the two women he was holding against their will. What a hero. Sarah, I’m just trying to help you see that it doesn’t have to end if you don’t want it.

It’s not gonna be easy, but you can save your marriage. But like what kinda person am I if I condo that staying withand doesn’t mean that you condo it, it might as well No, I’m I, I’m a doctor. It is my job to help people. I mean, how can I be with someone who would put someone else’s life in danger? Like, Well, if you still love him, I’m not like you, mom.

I cannot live with myself if I am married to a man like Xander, I guess. Now I know why you didn’t wanna sue rednecks, right? Justin, let me explain. That would’ve been some interesting litigation. The plaintiff and the defendant being the same person. I can’t believe I actually tried to help you. I didn’t want to involve you.

You involve me when you kidnap my. And spent weeks lying about it. Xander, I never wanted Bonnie to be a part of all this. You had a funny way of showing it. It must have been so funny watching me trip all over myself thanking you and calling you my hero. You must have got a huge laugh out of how stupid I was.

Was not laughing at you. I promise. All I felt was a terrible guilt and shame. You should be ashamed. No, you should be proud of yourself. Is proud because you are a criminal mastermind. Might as well enjoy your handy work. Genius move, by the way, getting someone else to pretend to be the clown. Now, who was it?

Who was your accomplice? Tell me. Was it your good buddy, Gwen?

Sorry, boss. Stop. Not like I wasn’t expecting these still it’s, it’s not fun when they send you the papers. I’m actually the one that sent them 10, Nicole. She just signed them and sent them back. So that’s it. Then it’s basically done. Yeah. Yes. As soon as I sign these, our marriage is over.

Are you, are you sure you wanna do that right here? Not in your or something? Yeah, it’s fine.

Oh, maybe it isn’t.

I remember the day when my divorce papers. I mean, we had been separated for a while. It wasn’t like I was holding out hope for some last minute reprieve, but, but still, it, it’s, it’s just something about how final it feels, you know, seeing your, your names in black and white, accepting that my marriage, something I tried very, very hard to save was just, Over.

Yeah. Yeah. I mean, believe me, if I thought that there was a, a chance to save it, I, I, I would still be fighting. So why the hesitation? I guess? Um,

I don’t know. Even though Nicole’s the one who wanted to end our marriage, I just. I just, I feel like, uh, I failed


Oh, sweetheart. I can’t imagine how betrayed you must feel by Xander’s actions, and I’m sure right now you feel that the best solution is to wash your hands of him. And I felt that way in my marriage a few times. This is different. Mom. Victor never pretended to be anything other than he was. Oh, Victor has done plenty of things that I haven’t been happy with.

Just don’t think I’m as forgiving as you. Oh, it’s not about forgiving. It’s about love. So if you love someone, you just have to accept them no matter what. No, of course not. But you have to hang on and you have to to. Until you can’t any longer, you owe that to yourself. You married Xander, you made vows to him.

Not sure that, for better or worse included kidnapping, but if you still love him, you know I do. Yeah.

I am always going to,

how do I trust that he will never do something like this again? And how do I stay in a marriage if I can’t trust my husband? Well, you know, if you feel that way and you can’t imagine ever trusting him again, then you should.

You think that there’s still a chance? Oh, . It’s too soon to make that decision. The pain and the betrayal, it’s just too raw. You need time to think to make sure, because you know what? You may change your mind tomorrow. Next week, next month.

I don’t want you to do something that you can’t undo. Okay? I love you very much. You the strongest person I know. So you decide I’ll be here to support you. Okay? I love you. Love you too.

Oh, bloody hell. Of course, Sarah blabbed all over town. It was wishful thinking that she’d keep her mouth shut. Oh, well, considering how she feels about what you did to keep Xander from her, I’d say miracle is more like it. I still cannot believe you, and Xander was so careless as to stand in the middle of the park and have a conversation about Zander.

I have to warn him. What are you doing? What are you doing? I have to phone him. Why? Because I already feel guilty about my role in Sarah learning the truth. I can’t be the reason Xander goes to prison. Xander kidnapping people will be the reason he goes to prison. Yeah, but maybe if I could get that first, I could, I could maybe make things better and I could, oh, okay.

Gwen, stop, stop, stop, stop, stop. I did not wanna have to do this, but it’s time for the mittens to come off and the tough love to come out. I love you and you need to stay the hell away from Zander. Gwen, why don’t you think Gwen was the clown that attacked us in that warehouse? You mean the clown you enlisted to attack you in that w.

What? I dunno. We know Gwen created that fake website for you and the fake employment contract and she covered up your crime. Multiple crimes. Gwen had nothing to do with the kidnapping, I promise, because she’s so innocent, right? Speak a good friend to me, some friend. Forget it. Bunny. Xander’s never gonna roll over on Gwen.

At least not to us. But maybe he’ll change his mind when he talks to the cops calls. Huh? What’d you think You were gonna skate? One gut punch and you were gonna get off. Justin, you don’t have to do this. Some free legal advice cousin. Get yourself a good attorney. You’re gonna need one. Let’s go buddy. No, I don’t please you.

I seriously don’t come back. Can I interest you some Red Chad and I are friends and it’s not like he’s forcing me to hang out. Coming here today was my decision. Certainly not yours. You’re right. You’re absolutely right. I’m sorry that I overstepped. Damn right. I’m overstepped. I can’t help it that I care about you.

I worry about you. You have a big heart and what I’ve been seeing lately, to me, it just looks. Like what? Like Chad is manipulating me. Oh, I think that’s a strong word, but, but it’s what you were thinking, right? I was thinking that this whole situation, it’s not fair. Okay. I don’t, I don’t understand where this is coming from.

I mean, you’re the one who asked him to stay and play video games with us on Christmas. I know I was. I did. So what was that about? Were you just pretending to be a nice guy? You didn’t really want him to stay? God, of course. I didn’t want him to stay. Steph, you and I were about to have sex. Well, then why didn’t you say something?

Because it’s sad. Chad, the widower upset on Christmas. I’m not gonna throw him out in the cold. It’s not a good look and I don’t wanna look like a jerk. Wow. I’m making up for that now, aren’t you, Steph? I’m okay. I’m sorry that you didn’t wanna spend Christmas with Chad. I’m sorry that you think I’m spending too much time.

But he’s still grieving his wife, my cousin. If I can, if I can help him, then I owe it to Abigail. Babe, do you really think that’s helping you don’t think it could be. Maybe making it worse. What is that supposed to mean? Did it ever occur to you that Maybe your leading chat on.

I would never lead Chad on again. Maybe not intentionally, but you hired him to consult at your company. He comes over at Christmas with gifts. You go ice skating with him and his kids. Those kids are my family and they just lost their mother. Okay, Steph, you’re not just going with the kids ice skating.

You’re going together as a. And it’s not just today, it’s not just a Christmas, it’s anytime Chad shows up upset, you let him in. Okay? He’s not a stray dog. He’s my friend. He’s your friend who wanted something more outta the relationship. And I, I, I don’t understand why the more chances that you give him and the more time you spend with him, the more of a chance he thinks there’s gonna be something between the two of you.

So, so you think that by being kind to Chad, I’m some. Signaling that I wanna be with him, that, that I want him to get over his dead wife and fall for me. No, that, no, that maybe I’m not explaining this correctly or right. Then let me explain it. There is nothing romantic going on between me and Chad. He knows that you and I are seeing each other.

He respects that he respects me, which is more than I can say for some people right now, Steph. So. If you don’t mind, the kids are waiting, I will text you to reschedule our meeting.

Just because your marriage failed doesn’t make you a failure. How about three? Three marriages? Mm-hmm. , and now three divorces.

You at a certain point, you gotta start looking at yourself in the mirror. I’m wondering what the hell’s wrong with you that you couldn’t make it work. I know you can’t think like that. Okay, so, uh, how should I think

I haven’t known you very long, but you still seem like the guy who believes in love. God only knows why. I mean, you’ve been hurt, but you still try again. You’ve taken chances. I mean, it’s better to have loved and lost, right? Sorry. Is that really cringey? A little? Yeah. I don’t even know if it’s true. Well then let me give you some actual advice.

Says you have to sign this, right? Take some time. Go on a walk or something, you know, just, just make sure it’s something that you are ready to do when you need to do

so. You can even wait for me to finish my advice. No, I appreciate the effort, but I was just dragging out the pain and now I’m glad it’s over. You sure you’re okay, boss? Yeah. Wasn’t actually. Maybe. Maybe you should take the rest of the up. Nope. No. I am going to get back to doing what I do best. Putting away the bag.

Guys. All great news. We’ve got one of those for you.

You think I should stop talking to Zana? Stop talking to him. Stop seeing him. Unfollow him on Insta Fire. Can’t abandon him. Not now. The loving part of me would say, I understand it’s gonna be hard. You just need a little distance. And the tough part, save your ass while you can. But what if he needs me Lookwe?

Nobody knows better than I do. What a great day smoke show this guy is. And I know he’s still nestled deep inside your sweet, damaged heart, but he roped you into a kidnapping scheme that ended with somebody dead. He’s sinking. Gwen, you gotta abandon ship. But you sure it isn’t really already over? I mean, aren’t there any lifeboats out there?

Well, you haven’t been arrested. That’s a good sign. Yeah. But you said that Sarah was going around town saying what Sandra did. Do you think she’s gonna leave my name out of it? I would guess by now. She’s blaring your name out there in neon lights.

Sarah is your, your home up. That’s what you were working. I had the overnight shift. You must be exhausted, aren’t you? If she’s asleep, I can clear out. No,

I’m not staying here. I should have known. That’d be too much to hope for. You just missed Bonnie and Justin. How was that? Well, she punched me in the gut and he vaped at me, thrown in prison. That poor woman has been living in terror thinking that there’s some maniac out there trying to get her. So if you thought that I was gonna lie to her and Justin about you being the kidnapper, why you did it, Sarah, I don’t blame you.

But does that mean you’re also gonna talk to the police?

I have not spoken to the police. Well, Justin and Bonnie just left for the station to turn you in for being her kidnapper. He has the plan, but the whole case is based on

what you told them You overheard. So I’m wondering, are you gonna corroborate this story?

I hadn’t really thought about that. Must have crossed your mind before you told Bonnie she was a victim. She deserved to know who terrorized her, right? And now she’s gonna share that knowledge with the police. And that first question is gonna be how she knows, at which time she’s gonna tell them she heard it from you.

So you are gonna be the next call. So my question is, What are you gonna say to them?

So now that you know what Andrew did to me, are you gonna arrest him? Because I know exactly where he is. Unless of course he tried to flee already. Okay, well, I’m afraid that it’s not that simple. Why not? Because we’re bringing them secondhand knowledge, hearsay, unusable in a court of. I’m afraid That’s right.

But Sarah heard Xander talk about what he did to me. She told us. She can tell you they’re still gonna need proof. Proof. How about the fact that I was held prisoner? How about the fact that Susan Banks is dead? Okay. Not proof that you were kidnapped. Proof that it was Xander under that clown mask. Oh my God, what are you gonna do?

Let him get away with it. Are we supposed to just go about our lives like nothing happened? No. We are gonna do everything that we possibly can to make sure that he faces the consequences, but in order to do that, we need definitive evidence or someone to confess.

I am telling you, Gwenny, I have never done a better acting job in my life. You can only imagine the flap sweat coming out of every pour in my body. Lovely image. When Bonnie started talking about Xander rescuing her from that clown, it was like there’s a white hot spotlight shining on my soul. What were they asking?

What weren’t they asking? How could Xander be guilty of kidnapping when he was tied up right next to her having a knockdown drag out with her friendly neighborhood clown? She didn’t figure out that the second clown was you. Did she? Would I be standing here if she did? Oh, thank God. I don’t thank him. She thinks it was you.

Sweet to Jason’s mom. Huh? Take the kids for cocoa. It was, where’s Alex? He had to go back to work.

Listen. Um, I’m sorry about before. What do you mean you guys had a meeting scheduled and. And, uh, I’m, I’m sorry for making you miss it. Don’t worry about it. I wanted to play hooky. Hmm. So I feel a little, feel a little guilty.

Is this because of what Alex said to you?

What did Alex say to me? I heard a bit of your conversation before I walked up earlier. Oh, and just so you know, I don’t agree with him. You and I are friends and I enjoy spending time with you. He seemed pretty upset. Yeah, well, he has no reason to be. He’s just letting his insecurities get the best of him.

Even so I feel like I’m becoming an issue and I, and I, I told you I didn’t wanna become a problem for you too. You’re not. It’s his issue, not mine, and certainly not yours. Yeah. Well, it’s not unreasonable for Alex to wanna spend time with the woman that he’s seen.

If you and I were dating, I wouldn’t wanna share you with another man either.

Bonnie thought I was the clown. Well, technically it was Sarah’s theory. Not much of a stretch, I suppose, considering that she knows you helped cover up the original kidnapping, God, I mean, look at me. How? How? How can I pass for a muscle bound clown the same way I could, despite my slender figure and delicate features?

I knew about the bodysuit. How did they know? Apparently the cops found some evidence of it. Salem PD doing their jobs to go figure. So you are telling me that Sarah and Bonnie. Actually think that Zander had a physical fight with. Actually Bonnie was skeptical. Gosh, I should hope so. No, no, no. You shouldn’t hope so, because if they follow the trail of the second clown, it could lead them right to my doorstep.

I finally have my life together. Gwenny Sonny is actually starting to trust me for once. I am not a complete screw up. The last thing I need is any trouble with the law. Could that be.

Oh, but it is Leo. Hope we’re not interrupting.

I can’t lie to the police. If they ask me what I heard you and Gwen talking about, then I have no choice but to tell them. I understand that. I’ve never asked you to lie Sarah, but you might not have to.

What do you mean you do have the option of not saying anything at all? The right turn remains. I am not the one under suspicions, Andrew. That’s not what I’m talking about. From what I’ve gleaned in this country, a wife can’t be compelled to testify against her husband.

That’s presuming I still am your wife.

I appreciate you trying to understand Alex’s point of view, but I don’t want anything he said to affect our friendship. It won’t. I’m really grateful for the time that you’ve spent with me and the kids. I think, um, I think it really helps. Get, uh, get through the first holiday without their mother.

But we’re past Christmas now, so if you need a break, I don’t need a break. I like spending time with you and the kids. Oh, I think that’s part of Alex’s issue. Two damn bad. I’m not looking to upset him, but at the end of the day, who I spend my time with is not his. It’s mine and I’ve made it. Besides, he has nothing to worry about.

We were just friends. Right.

We’re more than that.

I’m really proud of you. You know, from punching Xander. Well, not too, but for telling the police what he did to. I know how hard that was for you. I’m just glad it’s over, you know? And it was worth bringing up those awful memories if, if it can make sure as Andrew gets what he deserves. Well, my hope is that knowing who did this to you will not put an end to your nightmares, and you no longer have to live in fear of being attacked by a clown.

Thank you. You make me feel so safe. I always want you to feel that way. You get way. But Justin, I feel badly. For you. For me? Mm-hmm. . Why Santa is your family. You trusted him. You cared about him? I did. For him to hurt your wife? Like. To hurt you, God, you must feel so betrayed. I am. But the most important thing is to make sure that Xander and whoever helped him gets what they deserve.

So officers, what can I do for you? It’s Kamus, Scher and Detective actually. Oh yeah, that’s right. My mistake.

You. It’s just a little cramp in my leg. Would you like to sit down? Um, Leo can get you some water. No, I can. No, no, no, no, no. No trouble. That’s okay. This isn’t gonna take long, right Then. So, um, what is this about the kidnapping of Bonnie Kikis and Susan Banks? Oh yeah. What about it? Well, No need for the innocent act.

Okay. We already know you were an accessory after the fact. I’m not even sure know what that means. Bonnie came by the station and she laid out a very plausible explanation about the kidnapping and it’s aftermath. Oh yeah, I know. Oh, poor woman. She must be so traumatized after what she went through. Did she accuse me?

She told us that Xander Cook was her kidnapper Sander. How awful. Which is why we’re here. I didn’t understand. We know you helped him, but we also know that you want the Mastermind. So any details you can provide to help us build the case again, Sandra would be greatly appreci. Well, like I said, I would love to help, but, um, I’m sorry, I dunno.

Anything about the incident. All right. Right. That’s right, of course. Okay. Well, should you suddenly remember something? I’m sure we can work something out. Work something out. Yeah. Well, you know, it, uh, seems unfair for you to be punished for Xander’s crimes, especially after the, uh, the way he treated you.

And I know Xander and I promise. The minute he is faced with prison, he’s gonna take you down with him.

We’re more than friends. Yeah, we’re family. We’ll always be connected. And I, I think that’s probably what struck a nerve with Alex. You’ll get over it or he won’t,

but I know, uh, my kids really like spending time. And so do I. But you know, if you ever feel like we’re taking advantage, I’ll say something. Not that I think you would ever do that, but if for any reason it gets to be too much, I promise, I’ll let you know. Good. But just do me a favor, you know, don’t hurt my feelings Too bad.

Yeah. Let me down. Easy sensitive . Just make something up. Tell me that, uh, that you’re working or train for a triathlon. Mm-hmm. . Yeah. I’ll let you down. Easy . I appreciate that. So don’t give this Alex stuff another thought. Okay.

Oh, it’s for me to worry about.

Well, your offer is very generous, but um, I’m afraid I’ve got nothing to say. You don’t have anything to say or you don’t wanna say it? Well, either way, I’m not going to be talking until I have a nice little chat with my attorney. Fine. Yeah. But I wouldn’t wait too long because this case is not going away.

Understood. Have a nice day, Mr. Mr. Stark. Yeah, you too.

Well, that was stressful. Oh, you telling me, I mean, you practically threatened to arrest me. What are you gonna do? How hell should I know? Have you thought about? You know, taking the deal. You want me to throw Zander under the bus? Oh, I know you still love him, but you’ve been risking everything for this guy and he’s still pining for Sarah.

I can’t believe if I’m saying this, but I actually agree with the cops. Why should you suffer for something that Xander did? So you punched Sandra in the stomach, . It was a pretty good shot too. I needed to blow off. Well, that’s understandable. As we speak. The police are trying to build a case against him.

How do you feel about that? Uh, I think he should face the music after what he did to Bonnie. I, uh, I appreciate you saying that, Maggie, especially since he’s your son-in-law. Yes, he is. I care about him very much. And you know, despite what he did, he loves my daughter or Sarah. It’s so awful for her to know she’s married to a kidnapper.

Well, actually, she’s thinking about ending the marriage.

Are you saying you, you don’t want to be married to me anymore?

My mother tried to convince me that I was rushing into this, and honestly, I didn’t know how I would feel when I saw you, and then

when I reached for that door. My heart was racing.

I wasn’t sure what I’d find,

what find,

I mean, it’s not like I expected you to be in here with your cloud mask. It’s just,

it proved to me that. I don’t trust you anymore.

I never will Sarah say that for divorce when I leave here,

nothing. Excuse me. I’m gonna go.

That hot stone massage was exactly what I needed. I think it was a good idea coming to the end for New Year’s Eve.

Go on something rough. I’m reading a very disturbing message from Brave. You’re not even gonna believe what Kristen has done. Now.

Go ahead. How can this be happening? Kristen? Just come and sit. I can’t sit Brady. I can barely breathe. I mean, whoever took her, why, why haven’t they made a, a ransom demand? Why haven’t they, why haven’t they told us what they need from us? We were told to wait for further instructions. We just need to be patient, patient, patient.

Our daughter has been kidnapped to Brady. Okay? Should be hurt or worse after what we went through to be a family. Like we can’t lose her. She.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


, good looking. Stephanie,

what are you doing here? I’m sure you remember how Chad interrupted us on Christmas, so I’m here for my rain check.

This time I came from here.

Wow. No wreath of condoms.

You came very prepared. Are you kidding me? Winter Green.

Don’t you have any other flavors?

Hey, I was just, uh, slept your voicemail. I’m, I’m gonna take a personal day. Taking the kids ice skating. Oh, well, I’m not here about work. I come bearing gifts for Thomas and. and they were so sweet to get me that cd. I wanted to bring them a little something in return. Mm-hmm. , that’s, that’s very nice. Come in.

Are they upstairs or, uh, yeah. Um, I’m gonna get them in a second. I, I’ve actually been wanting to ask you a question. Hmm. Shoot. Did I ruin your Christmas? Yeah. Christmas Didn’t, um, exactly turn out the way that I planned. Yeah, I, I know I said I’d be back in LA right after the holidays, but I, I’m dealing with some stuff.

Yep. Uh, , listen, I’m aware there’s work to do. I’ll, I’ll be on a plane as soon as I can. Okay. Talk soon.

This is nice. Will Sonny be joining us? No. No, he just went out.

Ooh. Someone’s in a good mood. I am, I am. I was just looking at real estate listings and I think I found a lovely, reasonably priced department that might work for Sarah Sander.

Well, what’s wrong? Uh, Maggie. There’s something you need to know about Xander and the company that he supposedly worked for. Supposedly, yeah. The, uh, pharmaceutical startup, uh, rednecks is a fake, it’s actually Xander. Spell backwards. What? There was no company, no job opening for a vice president in charge of sales.

Zander made the whole thing up. He lied to Sarah by getting a job there. That’s not all he lied about.

Zander z

Zand, it’s me. Are you in there?

Oh my God. Sandra, you all right? Oh yeah. I’m great. Oh, top of the world. Look at me. I’ve been phoning you. You didn’t answer your phone on your phoning and phoning. I thought you were hurt or, or even worse. Oh, worse. Definitely worse. Yeah. I can’t stop, think. What a worthless human being. I am a wretched loser, lying, dirtbag.

Sick. Right? Get up more. Four. What’s the point? The point is, you are not gonna self-flagellate any longer. You’re gonna get up and you’re gonna dust yourself off. Come on. I can’t Ah, can’t I start all over again? Gwe. Oh, how bloody, yes. Course you can. Come on you. And you will. Up you go. That’s it. Now that is an order Zander cook, and you know better than to find me

like Sands through the hourglass. So on the days of our lives,

I will never forgive Xander for this. Well, hang on. So Red Max doesn’t exist. Gwen created a website employment contract. The. Gwen, she claims she was doing Xander, a solid, helping him keep Sarah from finding out he wasn’t working. I am so confused. I felt that Xander had the job and then he decided to quit because his boss wanted him to do something unethical.

Xander made that up too. And when I offered to sue redneck for wrongful termination, Gwen gave me a fake c e o name, fake email address. Well, and when I saw rednecks written on the file cover, I put two and two. Okay, so then it looks like I’m the last one to know about this, uh, elaborate employment. Bruce

Sarah Sweetheart. There, there seems to be a reasonable explanation. Reasonable. Well, look, it sounds to me like Xander went to extremes to convince you that he had a job because he, he was feeling. , you know? Awful. And because he wasn’t able to provide for you or to, to pull his own weight, huh? This is about so much more than a stupid fake job.

They had a job, he just couldn’t tell us what it was because his boss was Ava Vitali. What? That can’t be. I wish to God it wasn’t. You were right the first time. The kidnapper was Xander.


Claire, eat this. No, come on, eat it now. Please.

There you are. Feel better. No, but that’s because you are mired and self hatred. You’re constantly bloody beating up on yourself. And what? What’s that gonna. What does anything do when the, the one that you love no longer wants anything to do with you Quinn? Hmm. That’s funny cause I’ve asked myself that question many a time and here’s what I’ve said to answer it.

Would you like to hear it? We are given this gift of life. Oh. For such a short time, and no matter how. Or disappointed or devastated you might be by all the horrible, rotten things that happen to us in life. You always have to remember to keep your sunny sights up and look forward to a better future. You should drive yourself, help burn.

Yeah. You know, I may just do that actually, and I might call it how to help a good friend out of a miserable funk, even when said friend is determined to stay in a miserable funk. How can I not stay in a miserable funk? Of course, there are dozens of times, but a message after message begging you to call me back so I can explain.

There’s no response, none. It’s like I can no longer exist. We don’t exist over. No, no, not necessarily. You were there when Sarah said she never wanted to see me. I would. I would listen less to what she says and more to what she’s done. And there you’ll find your silver line here.

Did you ruin my Christmas with Alex? You guys had the whole place to yourself and then I stuck around until like two in the morning playing video games. Did I ruin your plans with him?

Where they’re, hi. Oh, it’s so good to see you both. Daddy didn’t tell us you were coming. Oh, well he didn’t know. I wanted to tell you guys how much I loved my cd and maybe you can open these when you get home from ice skating with your dad. Can you come with us? Don’t these so much time. Oh, please, please, please stand.

Wow. It looks like I’m more popular around here than I thought.

What the hell are you doing in my room? Waking you from a very hot dream, apparently. Yeah. Thank you for ruining it. I’m doing my toothpaste. I need Don’t be so stingy. I just want one little squirt. Oh my God. Get it back and get out. Can you at least tell me where I could find a. Less gastly flavor than winter green.

Why don’t you ask the guy who asked you to move in here, God knows why. Well, son’s out and I couldn’t find any in his bathroom. Can do. Try Victor, right? He’d kill me. Like I said, try Victor. Oh, come on Alex. I can’t start the day without fresh breath. Where did my brother go to try to smooth things over with his crybaby husband about me living here?

I think they’re gonna kiss and make up. Definitely as long as he agrees to kick you out on your ass.

How can we, can we ca that depends. Where’s Leo? He’s at my uncle’s house where I left him. You mean where he is staying Still will nope. Nothing else to say. Will please.

Silver lining it. You’re joking, aren’t you? Hear me out. Where? Come on. Proceed. I want to hear all about what’s so great about my wife ignoring them all ears. Mm-hmm. . I’m waiting. Right. Lander, did you spend the night in jail? Did an army of police turn up and arrest you for. Oh, not yet. I said then come on man.

If it hasn’t happened, it’s not gonna, it means that Sarah hasn’t told the cops or anyone else. You don’t think she went straight to Bonnie and Justin? No, I don’t. Cause he would’ve been arrested and I haven’t heard anything from Jack. So, see. Let’s hope yet because that means Sarah obviously decided to keep what you did to herself.

So Xander admitted he was working for Ava Batali. Somehow she knew that he was having financial problems and she used that to get him to put on the clown mask, kidnap Susan, and collect some of the ransom as a paid, my God. And does it surprise? Who he turned to when he needed help covering his tracks.

Cause that’s right folks. None other than the Master of Deception herself. Miss Gwen, risk check. So are you saying that Zander was cheating on you? Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t know, mom, I, I don’t put anything past him at this point. I mean, it’s not like he has a good moral compass, but with him being a kidnapper, but, but that, that doesn’t make any sense.

Seriously. It doesn’t, I mean, he. Was snatched up by that muscle bound clown, same as me, cuz it’s, it’s kind of impossible that kidnapper had to be somebody else.

And then after that, Wilhelmina just stormed out such a drama queen. Well, you don’t have to worry about that Leo, because your throne is safe and despite your little twist and your little, uh, spin on things, I’m with Will on this one. The guy who ditched his family to fly off to la la land. Uh, yeah, because he had to do what he needed to do for his job.

I know this might be a concept that’s foreign to you, Leo, but some people have to travel for work. Uh, travel is one thing he told Sonny he wasn’t coming home for the holidays. Yeah. Except he did come home for the holidays to surprise Sonny on Christmas only to find him with you. Here, the person who has caused a whole lot of people, including Will and Sonny, a whole lot of misery.

That is, in my opinion, your subjective perspective. That’s a subjective perspective, really. Uhhuh. really see, in my opinion, That’s an objective fact because your whole MO is to target vulnerable men and bleed them dry. You say that like, I have designs on Sunny. We’re just friends. Okay. Well, in my experience, when somebody in one party says that we’re just friends, that’s not the truth.

The truth is one of those people is pining for the other, and then the other person who thinks he’s about to have sex with one of those friends is left out in the. Okay, well now I have lost track of which person is the other person and who’s pining for whom. But somehow I don’t think we’re talking about me and Sonny anymore.

Okay. Okay. Okay. I will go, but no one can laugh if I fall on my. Kay. We would never. All right, go get your hats in your gloves. Come on. Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go. Okay. Get your coach too.

Are you sure about this? Dude? You need me? Those kids totally own you all. Just call the ring . Okay.

Will come on, will open up when I slam the door in your face. That meant go away. All right, well, are we alone because we’re talking.

Allie and Chanel are out, but no son. We are not alone because Leo Stark is smack in the middle of our lives. Okay. And you think shutting me out literally is the best way to get through it. We shouldn’t have to get through anything. You kick Leo out. That’s problem solved. You have every right to be upset.

Yes, I, yes, I know. I’ve, I I am upset and I should be upset because you do this one simple thing and it’s over, but for some incomprehensible reason, you, you just, you haven’t done it yet. He has nowhere else to go, will, son, you’re doing it again. You’re feeling sorry for a, for a predator. Leo Stark is a gold digging Grif.

All he does is bring pain and misery. Why is it so hard for you to believe that someone can change? I’m not, I’m not having this conversation with you. I’m not. You’re not. What? What? Look, somewhat someone, yes, someone can change, but a gold digging grifter, like I said, a conman with a heart of stone. I don’t think so.

Okay. I’m not. That Leo is a completely different person, and I, I’m definitely not excusing his past behavior, but like I said, I’ve been spending a lot of time with him and I, it’s become very clear to me that beneath all the flamboyance and theatrics is a, a real human being with feelings and, and dreams.

Feelings and dreams. Really? Yes. I’ve seen it, and maybe if you were here, you’d, you’d believe it too. Oh, you mean if I hadn’t abandoned you to go to la? Of course, we’re still talking about Sonny. You’re trying to cause problems between him and will. Meanwhile, all you give a damn about is your toothpaste. I prefer cinnamon.

Fine. I’ll borrow Maggie. Or buy your own or better yet, move out and then buy your own. You, you are clearly not a morning person. I, I just don’t enjoy waking up with a thief in my room, Leo, or in my bed. Scram. You gotta go. I, I, I have to get dressed. Need a hand picking out a shirt? Oh my goodness. Alexander, get your mind out of the gutter.

But if you did need a hand, let’s go out, out.

Whoever was in that clown Baskett couldn’t have been Xander. I mean, it’s impossible. When I came to, in the Warehouse, he was tied up right next to me and the, and then the bozo came in and the two of ’em got in a big brawl, and yet somehow the clown managed to get out without being unmasked. Bonnie, it was a setup.

The, the whole thing was just an act to make Xander look like a hero. My God, is it possible well pull it off? He would’ve needed someone to. Yeah. Yeah. And I know who it was. Morning loves what’d I miss?

Sarah hasn’t said anything yet. Yeah. And I don’t think she ever will. That makes one of us. She just needs time to, to calm down. Yeah. And, and realize that you never meant to hurt. I did hurt her badly. Yes, but that wasn’t your intention, was it?

I mean, come on. You’re in this whole bloody mess, Sandra, because you love her so damn much. So maybe have some faith in her love for you too, and some hope that she will come to understand that you were doing all of this just to, to prove. That you’re a good husband. There’s no way Sarah’s gonna gimme the benefit of the doubt about this.

It’s more likely that she’ll find an evil clan to take me out. Pessimist, Gwen, I really do appreciate you Trina. You know, cheer me up and I feel awful for dragging you into all this. I know how hard you’ve worked. Get back into Jack’s good graces. If he finds out that you’ve been helping me, boy, you let me deal with my dad messed up my life beyond all repair.

I’m not gonna do the same to you. I’ll tell Jack that you’ve Yeah. That I, I forced you to help me. Then I’ll, I’ll protect you, I promise. No, you’ve already got so much to deal with. As is Quinn. You keep telling me that I. I’m trying to pay you. My dad. Let me,

are you taking shots at me for going to la? Oh, oh my God. That’s not, that’s not what I meant. I swear, if you wanna have a conversation about how we can live apart, I would be more than happy to, but I think we should probably deal with this. Okay. You wanna be roomies with Leo? I think that’s patently insane.

I asked you to kick him out. You refused. What, what else is there to discuss? I, if you disagreed with me about something that I felt strongly about, I would hear your opinion. So can you, can you just please do the same for me please? Fine. Okay. , thank you.

Look, when, when Craig left, Leo kind of lost him, all right? And he hurt a lot of people, but he knows that he made a mistake. Do you honestly believe that? I do. Yeah, I do. What do you When he talks about it, I, I can see the sadness in his eyes. I can hear the regret in his voice. He knows he screwed up. And he, he spent a lot of time reflecting, thinking about how to change his life, how to turn it around, and the first step was to find a job.

So I offered him one. No, he asked you for one when you were in the hospital and you said he was a conniving creep and he needed to talk to Alex and he didn’t. He did months later, after we started becoming friends. So when Alex shut him, I told him that when I went back to being C E O, I would need an assistant.

No, you were gonna hire him again, Sonny. No, he almost destroyed tight. Let me finish. He shut me down. You know why? Because he knew Uncle Vic would freak out and fire me. That’s proof right there. That is proof that he has changed. He put my wellbeing in front of his own needs, or he’s parlaying your offer into something better.

Why are you being so negative? Why are you being so naive? Just because Leo does. Potentially not completely selfish thing. I’m, I’m, you, you want me to change my mind on him? No. I am trying to get you to understand the choices that I’ve made and if you understand those choices and you still want Leo gone.

He’s gone.

People. The mood in here is downright marose. It’s like someone died or something. Wait, did someone die? I’m just glad I didn’t. Doesn’t that clown. Sarah thinks that Zander was the kidnapper and that he hired a fig kidnapper so that I wouldn’t suspect that he was a real kidnapper. I think. Well, that seems farfetched.

Leo, please. Um, Sarah was about to tell us who she thinks Xander’s accomplice was, and she seems pretty sure about it. I am. There’s only one person that makes sense.

You want to repay me right now if.

I think that we are getting a bit ahead of ourselves here. Now, see, I am still very optimistic that things fuck out for you. Now you’re a bit optimistic. I am going to, uh, drown my saw eyes. Right.

I’m going to be very brutally honest with you right now.

Cook. You are as delectable specimen of the male species that I have ever laid eyes on, but you are never more unattractive than when you wallow in self petty.

Short break. I promise I’ll be right back.

Oh, there she is, Alex. Hi. Hi. What are you doing here? Your assistant said I might find you here. Oh, why’d you need to find me? We had a strategy meeting planned for today. What did you forget about me? No, I actually left a message with your assistant about rescheduling. Did you? Mm-hmm. . Oh. Must have ah, must have got my wires crossed.

Oh, sorry about that. It’s okay. Anyway, what are you doing here? What are you here with?

I thought you felt strongly about this. I do. But you’re willing to change your mind.

Uh, Leo and I will still be friends. Okay. We work through a lot and that that means something to me, but I will find him another place to live as soon as possible, even though you think it’s perfectly fine for him to stay. Keri, obviously it’s not perfectly fun if it upsets you.

You’re my husband. Well, you always come first.

I no one. I feel like I’m forcing you to do something you don’t want to do. You’re not forcing me to do anything. All I want to do is to make you happy. That’s the most important thing to me. I love you will. I love you when things are great. And I still love you when we’re fighting and I still can’t believe you flew all the way out here and I still haven’t gotten a single kiss yet.

Well, Merry Christmas. Happy New Year.

Love, as they say. Conquer. I can’t take any more of your positivity. Oh God, I’m not gonna stand here and, and let you just give up. I’m a woman of your dreams. What choice do I have? Change. Change your mindset. Zander. Stop feeling so bloody. Sorry for yourself. And start thinking about Sarah. Yeah. Think about,

think about holding her for kissing her, touching her, lost all of that forever. Ah, so you’re a loser then. No. A quitter then, are you? Not at all. Right. Well then imagine yourself with your wife. Yeah. Together. Close. Happy. Now. Alright. I’m imagining, I’m imagining good. No, just hold that there. Just keep that mental image there at the forefront of your mind and let it motivate you.

Put this fire underneath you and hold onto it every minute of every day until Sarah’s back in your arms.

Oh my gosh. That’s exactly what I need to do. Your riot.

thank you so much. You are the only one that could have brought me back from the head. Yeah. Well I am your mate, so the least. Do

you think Gwen was Xander’s accomplice? Well, I heard him going over everything with her, so, well. He may have told her about the kidnapping, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that she was in on it. However, she was in, on his lie about the. But the clown who kidnapped Zandra in me was a man, a big man, and didn’t look at all like Gwen actually.

Grave called me earlier and he said that uh, they found some evidence to indicate that the clown was actually wearing a bodysuit, one of those bodysuits you wear to bulk up your appearance, which means that it’s possible that it was Gwen or a man with a smaller frame. Isn’t that right, Leo? Who are you looking at me for?

You’re Gwen’s friend. Did she mention any of this to you? And just don’t even think about lying. I swear on a stack of Bibles. I know absolutely nothing about Gwen dressing up as a clown. If I were you, I try W Ringling Brothers.

Hi guys, this is Alex. Why don’t you say, Hi, Alex. Nice to meet you. Hey, nice to meet you. Firm Shake. Good shake. So I, uh, I heard that, that this one missed a meeting. I’m sorry. That’s on us. We, uh, we dragged her into this. Aw, daddy, you wanna skate more? Okay. Yeah. Uh, just give us a minute. You know what, I got this.

You too. Catch up. Okay, come on. Let’s go.

Oh, I’m sorry, man. The kids wanted her to come. Oh, no. It’s all good, man. It’s all good. You guys having a good time? Yeah, yeah, we are. Good, good, good. I’m glad. Chad, I just want to, uh, make sure we’re clear on where we stand now. You do know Stephanie and I are together.

Yes, of course. I know that you and Stephanie are. I’m sorry man. I didn’t mean for that to come out as harsh as it may have. Uh,

I know how rough Christmas was for you. I know you’re missing Abigail and I get it, man. I really do. And to be honest, I had a really good time hanging out with you, but not to get too tmi right before you showed up. It’s just Steph and I having a good time. I ended up having a run at the drugstore to go get.

You know? Right, right. Yeah, exactly. So here I am thinking that it’s just gonna be the two of us and . Yeah. I’m becoming the third wheel. I, I would’ve maybe found kinder words to say, but sort of Look, I honestly been, that wasn’t my intention with the holidays. I was just feeling lonely. Stephanie’s a friend and she’s easy to be with.

Yeah, she is, but the holidays are over. We made it just another workday in which Stephanie and I had a meeting planned and instead she’s here with you all having Having what? Family time.

I’ve been away for a lot longer than either of us thought I would be, and I’m sorry for that son, even though it was unavoidable and you supported my decision to go. But I, I still feel like I kind of stranded you here, and I, I know that’s been hard it. It’s been hard for me too. What’s made it sort of bearable is that I’m surrounded by people all the time, you know, colleagues, fellow filmmakers, and you know, some friends I I’ve made who aren’t substitutes for you.

obviously. But I, I, I guess what, what I, what I’m trying to say is I’m okay with you having, you know, a new friend too. I just really wish it was somebody else. Okay. Well it isn’t, and I don’t think we want a relationship where we can veto each other’s friendships. No, we don’t. Okay, so I’m still gonna be friends with Leo.

And you don’t like that? Where does that leave us?

Fatty? What’s on earth? Did you just run here? Uber flat. Need to talk urgent. Is this about your mission to get into Sunny’s Trouss? Don’t you bother denying it? I know you all too. Well man. Bye. So, okay, yes. Sorry darling, but your sexual fantasies are gonna have to wait cause I’ve just got too much in my mind.

So yes, please. Another time. Another time. Another my foot,

my darling girl. I’m so. About all of this. You don’t have to be sorry, mom. This is all on me. I, I knew that there was something wrong with Xander and I just pushed it off. Can I do that? You love him?

Yeah, but I let, I let that blind me to who he is, who he’s always going to be.

Hi, it’s Sarah. Leave a message. It’s. Again, I, I know I have so much to make up for Sarah. So many bad mistakes and and bad choices by swear. I did it all for love cause I love you so much with all my heart. I swear I do. Please just call me back.

I guess where that leaves us is, uh, pretty awkward place. Yeah,

I’m, I’m, I’m not gonna lie to you, it, it is hard for me to accept that you’re friends with someone who has done so much damage. Um, but you and Leo have admitted some fences and it’s clear that you have a certain loyalty to him. And when I think about it, the only thing I can. I just respect that

shall woo agree to disagree until you realize I’m right or vice versa. I hate hate you. I know, but I love making up.

Family time, that’s not an accusation. I understand the whole ice skating thing is innocent, but I also know you had feelings for Stephanie, so I’m gonna ask you man to man,

if there’s something brewing here you think I should know about Chad, it’s better to get it out there now.

Alex? No, listen to me. There’s absolutely nothing romantic going on between me and Stephanie. All right. She’s my friend and my boss. That’s it. All right. Hey, we, uh, we ran into a couple of the kids’ friends just now and their mom who said she’d watch them when I came to get you. Um, but they said that they want daddy to skate too.

Hmm. Okay. Thank you. Mm-hmm. , thank you. Yeah.

All right. If you’re not too tired, what do you say? I go run a pair of skates. I’m gonna go hit a couple laps around this rink. Who the hell do you think you are?

All right. Get you some ice. No need to talk bad news. Yeah. Well, what happened? Your news is it can’t be worse than mine. Sarah overheat, me and Zander talking about the kidnapping and get this. She’s decided to keep what she knows to herself. I mean, it’s a bloody miracle. Why are you flapping? Listen, important.

Okay, go on then talk. Sarah is not keeping her mouth shut. She’s telling everybody what Xander did.

I. I, I spoke to Gwen. If, look, if this is about my phony job at redneck. Oh, rednecks. Oh, rednecks you,

Sarah, please don’t blame yourself. This is all on Zander. Talk to me. Sweet. Tell me what you’re thinking. What will you do next?

The only thing I can do, what is that?

I have to divorce him.

Any luck tracking now, Ralph? So far every lead just brings us straight into another dead end. Okay, we’ll keep at it. We need to find this guy. We need to get him to admit what Lehan did to Steph. Oh, almost forgot a messenger. Dropped us off for you today.

Oh, everything okay? Yeah, it’s from my attorney,

 Happy. Happy New Year.

Ah. Yeah,

come on, Gabby. Pick up.

It’s me again. Your groom, Jing Gwen told me you’ve gone to Miami to find Stephan. Please call me back as soon as you get this, Gabby, I know how hurt and angry you must be, but if, if you, if you just give me a chance, I can explain everything, so please call me. I love you so much.

Oh man, really? What the hell are you doing in here? Apparently I’m a little too late. How did you get in? Oh, the front desk was very nice to give me this after I showed them that my, it says Gabby Damara, and that’s good. My husband.

What do you mean Rachel’s gone well? Well, she’s not in her bed and, and it’s after midnight and I don’t know where she is. Brady, what are you doing? I’m calling Eric. Who do you think?

It’s his voicemail. Oh my God. I mean, he’s not here. He’s not picking up his phone. He’s supposed to stay with Rachel until we get home. Holidays are passed. Now it’s time to put that plan into motion. Right. My own daughter. Listen, it’s the only way we can force Kristen’s hand. I’m I, I un, I understand. We just have to make sure that we find the right time to.

Tonight. It has to be tonight. Look, he’s the most responsible guy. I know. There’s gotta be some kind of explanation. A donor is missing Brady,

like sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

I know it’s traditional for people to kiss someone at midnight.

So was this just a New Year’s kiss? It seems to me this kiss could mean whatever, want to.

Hey, hey, where are you going? I dunno.

That was, uh, totally unexpected.

You know, you know this Z we came up with. You don’t make everybody think we’re a couple, so they cut you. Guess what we’re really up to? Well,

I don’t know. Now it’s starting to feel more like mob. We’re really up to instead of an act that I don’t think that made any sense. This is New Year’s. A kissing could just be like, you know, going with the flow felt pretty real to me.

You mean that

felt pretty real to me too.

She’ll call sh sh. She’ll gimme a chance to explain

a message from Rolf. He’s got some explaining to do

your husband’s room. Are you in Lee Honeymooning in this hotel? If so, go find him and leave the two of us alone. I Salem and I don’t want any part of him. You’re not making any sense at the wedding. I remembered something. So, so Rolf did brainwash you, he wipe out your feelings for me. Okay. That is ridiculous.

You told me yourself, you went and saw Wolf, told him your crazy theory, he denied it and you believed. Yes. At first I did, but then I remembered that while I was arguing with him, he all of a sudden had a needle in his hand. He injected me with some kind of drug that made me forget that at first. He admitted I was right.

Well, how do you remember now? I don’t know. I don’t know. But as soon as, as Lee and I were pronounced man and wife, it all came back to me. Stefan, you still love me? If I remember that, then so can you.

Why are you doing this? What do you get out of it? The truth. Everyone in Salem knows that Rolf is devoted to the Deras. So why would he brainwash Stephan? Because it wasn’t Rolf’s decision. Somebody else forced him to do it. Who would do such a thing to me? Huh? Le, my brand new husband.

How the hell could you do this to me? I couldn’t answer when you called me before. I was getting married to the love of my life, but it doesn’t matter. Your warning came too late. The shot were off about five seconds after Gabby and I were married. She’s on her way to Miami right now to find Stefan.

You’re sorry that’s all you’ve got. I guess. You’re not the genius you thought you were and now, now you’ve ruined my life.

It is. Uh, After midnight. , wanna go for a walk?

I know I told my brother I was done with him, but his whole world flew up tonight. Fuck you. You, you’ve warned the guy that that might happen, but I’m not the kind of person who said, I told you so. I feel so bad for him and it kind of makes it hard to focus on how happy I am with you right now. I’m happy too.

D’s lovely. He, he will probably lose his job at Jamira. He might even go to prison. I get it. You’re his sister. He needs. You want to be there for, will I see you tomorrow? I think the chances of that are excellent. I’m gonna ask you on a real date, not one that’s just for appearances. I like that very much.


Happy New Year. Happy New Year,

Chris. Hey, Eric’s not here. Rachel’s not here. You know they have New Year’s Eve fireworks down by the river. I’m sure that’s where he took her. Right? But he is not picking up his phone. You’re talking about me. I turned my phone off. Where is Rachel? Uh, she calmed down around 11. You have to put her in bed and tucked her in.

Okay. I was just there. She’s not in her room. It’s impossible. I just checked on her 10 minutes ago. Well, she’s not there now. What happened to my baby girl, Eric?

Thank you.

Hey, I, I think I know what’s going on. Well, why don’t you tell me that? Alright. Listen, listen, listen, Rachel, sometimes she sleepwalk, right? She hasn’t done that since I’ve been here. No, she’s done it. She’s done it once or twice before. So maybe she’s, she’s probably ConEd out one of the other bedrooms. She better be.

She better be or you are in a lot of trouble. Hey Rachel, sweetheart, it’s mommy. Come on out, honey. The hell are you doing? Where is my kid?

Some people think ice cream is just summer. Those people are nuts. That’s what I say. Good. Thanks for letting me stay up past midnight. Yeah, no problem. Oh, he is the best girlfriend uncle Eric ever had.

Oh, wait, wait, wait. What? What is it?

You and I have been here before and we keep coming back here because there’s an undeniable attraction between. Yes, but it doesn’t mean we should give into it. Why not be be? Because look, the, we use this as a distraction for what we really want and can’t have. I mean, look at last time I was trying to forget about Rafe and you were trying to get over Sammy, and we did both of those things.

Isn’t that something we should celebrate for you baby? Eugene, stop please. For me, it’s, it’s the same tactic. Different guy. Eric, again, do I need to remind you that he’s not having a moment or whatever other jargon you used? He’s moved on. No, he’s not. Bloody hell, Nicole, while you are here mooning over him, he’s probably making passionate love to Sloane Peterson.

Sloan Peterson. You left my kid with Sloane Peterson. What? Are you nuts? Rachel was fine. She and Sloan hit it off immediately. Dude, you did not tell me that you were gonna bring Sloan into this. How do you know that you can trust your lawyer? She’s my lawyer. We have attorney client privilege. Oh, that’s reassuring.

Don’t you understand that? That doesn’t mean a damn thing because she aided and abetted you in a crime.

All right, so tell me why. Why do you think Lee would do this to me? Because he found out that Rolf was keeping you alive. That, that he transplanted Jake’s heart into your chest. How, how did he find out? I don’t know. All I know is that he thought that having a damer on ice would be good leverage in a family business.

But then he fell for me and things got complicated for him. Okay. I, I, I can’t believe this Now, I don’t know Lee that well, but I cannot believe that he would go this. He changed when he met me. He was scared to death of you waking up. He thought that if you did, I’d forget all about him. So he made sure that didn’t happen.

How I pulling the plug on the machines that we’re keeping you alive.

I thought it was her. Right. What are you doing here, Jing? When I thought you said I was on my own. I know.

I thought you might not wanna be alone right now.

Come in.

You said you and Johnny drove Gabby to the airport. I thought maybe she, she didn’t get on the plane. I don’t think there was any chance of that. When we left her, she was totally determined to get this stuff.

You are saying that Lee tried to murder Stephan? Yeah. Ray arrested him tonight for it. He dragged him out of our wedding and street to headquarters. Turns out I didn’t know the man I married at all. Okay? And I am sorry about that. I am, but what do you expect me to do about it? I expect you to go get your stuff and help me go find Ralph.

Undo what he did to you. Forget it. What? I’m not going anywhere with you, Gabby. I’m staying right here with Chloe.

I had to think Va Brady, the important thing is that Rachel is happy. She’s safe and you know where she is? Yeah. She’s with a woman who has zero school. She’s not there. I, I’ve been looking everywhere. Where are you looking for her? I’m, no, I’m about to. I um, who are you calling? Brady. Our daughter is missing.

I’m calling the cops.

Eric is just using Sloan to get over. But that doesn’t mean I should use you to get over him. I use me. I’m at your disposal. I would love nothing more than to lose myself in this bed. Well then, but I okay , but it wouldn’t hurt to try restraint for once in my life. Like I, I, I’m not close to being over Eric and I’m not even divorced from ra.

I suppose I understand, and one of my top New Year’s resolutions is to stop making decisions that I will regret. You call what you do, making decisions. See, even, you know, I’m right

and if you ever. Result back to acting on the instinct. I very much hope that I’ll be there.

Oh, and by the way, when I told you that I was aware of what Lee did to dear to Stephan, I assumed you would keep that to yourself.

You’ve assumed, right. Thank you. Don’t mention it.

Goodnight, Nicole.

I know I’ve made a total mess of things.

You’re always ruthless. We’re going after something you.

I learned that at our father’s knee,

not that he’s to blame for what I’ve done. Can I ask you something?

I don’t have any more secrets Left. Let’s go for it. Did truly try to kill Stephan?

Did you not hear a word? I just said, Gabby. I heard every word of it. None of it matters to me. Part of your brain that loves me was wiped out. And you’re okay with that. Maybe you didn’t notice when you broke into this room, Gabby, but Chloe and I were kind of in the middle of something. You’d rather have sex than find out what happened to you.

We just made love for the first time, and that is a very big deal to me. That only happened because you’re not in your right mind. He’s only here with you because he doesn’t remember the part of his brain that, that, that still loves me. Is that good enough for you?

Hey, you’re, you’re not on good terms with the police right now, Chris. I don’t care. Our baby is Missy Brady. I, and why is you so damn about it? No, no, no, no. I’m just, he was here. There’s no way someone could have broken in. Oh my God. What if, what if she woke up and, and she wanted to see New Year’s Eve and she, she sleep and walked out that door?

Oh my God, yes. Yes. I wanna report

what happened,

Chris, out. I trusted you. It. I trusted you when you were in there feeding your bed. I don’t understand.

My baby girl. No, just stand by there.

I’m gonna go find Rachel. I’m gonna get her back for you. Yeah, I’m going with, I have two. Put my damn phone. What happened? It was somebody, somebody should stay here in case they contact us again. Ready? I can take my phone. I can, and I mean, I’m not gonna just sit here while a monster has our daughter.

See, lemme see,

man. Okay. Okay. We, we need, we, we need to do what, what, what they want all. We’ll do what they want. And you, I need you to stay here, okay? Short. Okay. Alright. Find her. I’m gonna find her and we’re gonna bring her home safely. Okay.

Hate this. I don’t like it either. I prefer to watch my mom get sick of we die this time. She could do something crazy right now. Hey, I know what she’s capable of. You said Kristen got arrested for what I found out at the wedding. That Kristen and Lee Shin got Rolf to brainwash Stephan into wanting Chloe and hating Gabby.

Are you kidding me? And that’s why he is with Chloe now. She wanted Chloe out of my life. She found a way to make it happen. And the police know now. Yeah, everyone at the wedding knows now. Kristin, you go back to prison. I don’t know what she’s gonna do next, man. Listen, I’m gonna go check on Rachel and make sure she’s okay.

You should check on her because I don’t like the fact that she’s with Sloane Peterson right now. Okay. You go back inside and keep an eye on Kristen. What am I gonna tell her? Why did I come back so quick? I don’t know. Go get for a support. Be United Front. I don’t know. Some balone like that. Plea guilty or desperate?

Not guilty and desperate. Okay. Yeah, it’s not a stretch for me right now. Okay. I’ll go down to the garage with you and I’ll come right back up. All right, good. Because you need to convince Kristen that this is for. I’m gonna do whatever I have to do. I want that bitch out of all of our lives.

Oh, I was just about to, uh, have a toast with your grandfather’s ghost, but you’re a much better company. If you’d care to join me, why not? Your usual. Sure.

Thank you.

Happy New Year. Same to you.

Hi. So did you get Gabby to the airport on time? Yeah. Yep. She, uh, just barely made her flight. She’s. I’s probably in Miami right now. Could even be with Stephan telling him everything. Well, I’m more concerned with what Lee is telling the police. I hope he’s upset over Gabby than causing to spill his guts.

Yeah. And uh, tell Rafe that you knew your brother was brainwashed and did nothing about it. Yes. That, yeah. Well, you are in luck, Lee’s not with the police. They had to let him and on Kristin.

Yep. The only person with him now is Wendy.

I went to Rolf’s lab to get a look at

the love of Gabby’s life.

Ste was just lying there. Help. For all intents and purposes, he’d been dead four years.

I wanted him to stay that way because I was so in love with Gabby, and I knew if Stefan came back, I’d loser to it

and I saw the plug. To the machine that was technically keeping me on alive.

It was all that stood in between me and what I wanted more than I’ve ever wanted anything.

You think I’m a monster, don’t you?

Anything that you think is real between you and Stefan isn’t. He was programmed to be repulsed by me and attracted to you. Do not listen to her. Chloe. No. And aren’t you still on the rebound from Brady? I mean, come on, do yourself a favor. Just get dressed and get out of here. You what? The only one who’s leaving here, Gabby, is you.

What the hell are you doing? Chloe and I came here to spend New Year’s Eve together alone, and that’s exactly what we’re gonna do. That is not gonna make a difference though, because I know the truth and so to you.

Oh my God, you’re back so fast. Did you find something out? Oh, Eric is out there looking. I decided to stay with you. You know, just in case there’s a ransom. Oh my God. I was, Kristen. I was worried. I was worried about you. I don’t, I don’t think you should be alone right now. Thank you.

I, I never expected any of this to happen. I don’t, nothing. Of course she didn’t. I mean, neither did I. We do this. Who would take your sweet baby? Girl?

Good. You gotta just sleep. Finally. God, I spent my New Years watching cartoons. Do you know how boring and stupid those things are? I’m sorry. I thought we were gonna ring in the new year together. And instead I spent my New Year’s emergency babysitting. Hmm. At least it’s over. Actually. It wasn’t a babysitting emergency.

What do you mean something I didn’t tell you?

You think I’m going anywhere? You, you better think. If she doesn’t stop, I will call the front desk and have them send security out here.

Okay. I guess,

come on, where were we?

A message from me. This on will be good.

You hungry? I’m starving. We could order some more room service. Stephan, your ex-wife just showed up here and told you that Ralph literally got inside your head and turned off your feelings for her, and then he brainwashed you into wanting to be with me and you’re talking about food. Okay. I’m actually trying to forget that she was even here.

Are you not even a bit curious about what happened to you? I have heard so many versions of the same damn story and I don’t care. Look, Gabby just married Lee, maybe she’s realizing what a terrible mistake she made. She seemed pretty sure about you. I don’t care how she feels about me, I can’t stand the side of her.

You and I just made love for the first. And that is what is important to me tonight.

I know that you’re the one I wanna be with, and I’m praying you feel the same way.

I asked you a question, do you think I’m a monster? Stephan’s still alive, so I’m hoping that means you plucked him back. Actually, the alarm went off right when Kristen got there. She did the re plugging. So you would’ve let him die. I, I, I don’t know. In retrospect, I’m, I’m glad she showed up. I think I was alone in a room with Stephan and I temporarily lost my mind.

What is that? What your lawyer’s gonna tell the cops?

I am not the nicest guy in the world, jingly, but I’m no killer.

So what happens now,

the police Gabby’s brother, he’s out to get me. If Ray Fernandez figures out that you and Johnny knew about. He’ll want you to corroborate Gabby’s account. It sounds like you’re asking me to lie for you. I dunno if I can do that.

This is Gabby,

Gabby. Thank you so much for calling me back. Well, I was hoping you wouldn’t answer because you’ve been locked up. Your brother let Kristen AMI go. He doesn’t have any proof that I did anything wrong. Well, I don’t need proof cuz I know what you did and I hate you for it. If it’s the last thing I do, I’m gonna make you pay.

Okay. How can I convince you? And I got over Gabby on my own. Huh? I don’t know. But I am going to have to be convinced. Then I will do just that.

What, well, you said before that you would get your own room and I think that right now is a good idea.

That’s what you want. That’s what I’ll do.

Oh, I’m one more thing before I hang up on you forever. I’m in Miami right now and I talk to Stephan. Does does he? Does he remember how he felt about you? No, not yet. But he’ll come around. All your tricks, all your efforts to make and forget. It’s all for nothing because seven will love me again. Damnit. He will.

If we don’t find her, Brady, I don’t wanna go on living. I know. No stuff done. We’re gonna get her back. Rachel’s fine.

How do you know that? I just know. Will you keep telling me that please.

Yeah. Yeah.

Kristen’s kid. How can you, my Christy, in my mother’s life in her hand, what vulnerable spot in her life is Rachel. I’m just hoping she won’t take very long to give. How do I get the sense that you’re enjoying this? Kristen ruined my life a few years ago, and if I told you some of the things that she did to people I care about, you wouldn’t even believe me.

So I really don’t care if she suffers one moment, especially if it makes her do the right thing.

As far as I know, Lee kept you out of this. RA won’t let this one go. He’ll come sniffing around here eventually. Yeah. Well I’m not gonna tell him anything. Or Uncle Stephan. I very much appreciate that. Yeah. I know how much you and Wendy didn’t like keeping this secret. Yeah, yeah. We are both glad that that’s over.

So what is going on between you and Wendy? Oh, that is, None of your business. So there is something. Ah, we’ll, uh, we’ll see what happens in the new year. What about you and Nicole? We’ll see what happens in the new year.

You can take off. I wouldn’t want you to hang around with a guy who’s ruined everything for himself

at least. Do you see that? Now? That’s something

I have nothing left.

What? My chopped liver.

You my big brother. You drive me crazy.

No matter what you do. I will always love you.

You sure about this?

After tonight? I’m, I don’t know. I’m not sure about anything. Well, except that I did have a really nice. New Year’s Eve with you, so thank you. What’s the best night I can.

Thank God you believe me. Oh, I can’t wait to see the look on wall’s face. Get the hell outta my way.

It’ll. It’s just gonna take some time. It’ll.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Oh yeah, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I, I can’t do this. It was you, you told Ralph to brainwash seven. You’re hallucinating that she must be, imagine you doing something underhanded. The question is, why would you do this to Stephan? It’s because, uh, it’s because. Kristen, why she was hoping, so did step Chloe. He would come between her and Brady.

She could have Brady alter herself. Oh my God. It’s because she wanted to break up you and Chloe. Ask a stupid question and your believer, you can’t claim it’s outta character. You know what I’ll admit, I was at Rolf’s lab when Stephan woke up, but uh, if Rolf did brainwash him, it wasn’t my idea. And whose was it?

Yes, that’s what she wanted. Wait, what does that mean? Kristen wanted to break up Brady and Chloe, but your fiance wanted to protect his investment with Lee, the . He knew everything. He knew all along. I had stuff on ice. I put the brainwashing . It was his idea,

Gabby. Oh my God. It was you. This was your idea. You did this.

I’m, I’m sorry. I’m really, really sorry. Don’t be, it wasn’t fair to you. Chloe, here’s a fun thing that we have in common. All right. Listen, you and I, we both just had our lives turned upside down, right? I’m not dead anymore, at least I don’t think so. And you’re not with Brady. We would be idiots. To expect ourselves to be rational or, or fair or in any way, shape, or form predictable.

I was never really rational to begin with. Still, what I mean is when you pulled back just a minute ago, that wasn’t a conscious choice, right? No. Okay, so then maybe both of us should just let it go. It doesn’t matter. There’s only one thing that matters to me right now. And What’s that?

Me? What are you talking about? Don’t lie to me anymore. Okay. I, I remember, I know Wolf admitted that this was all your.

So you’re right. Ste was brainwashed. That’s why he hated me because Ralph made him hate me. He admitted it, but that doesn’t make any sense. Why would he incriminate himself like that? Because I had a scalpel to his throat and he admitted that it was all your idea. Gabby, you’re mistaken. He had to say that to keep you from killing.

I could never do something like that to you. Please believe me. I could never betray you like that. No. No. Lee wouldn’t do that. Come now, do you think he’s too high minded? No, he wouldn’t do that to me. But he did do that to you. He wants you to himself. He did want to risk losing you to Stephan to the extent that he tried to murder him in his sleep.


You didn’t just try to brainwash Stephan, you, you tried to kill him. What? Yes. Rolf admitted that too, that you tried to kill Stephan in his sleep. You tried to murder the man that I love.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives,

man. He never learns. I know what’s wrong, but I understand why that coyote hates that. Mommy said he should get his explosives from another company. Yeah, she would know. Okay. Open your mouth. A bigger pardon? Let’s see if I can get this in your mouth. Take your best shot. Come on. That’s the wrong direction.

You’re in a good mood, Uhhuh. I still miss mommy and daddy, but now I know they’re getting back together. Why would you think that? Because they went to a party tonight, sweetheart. Just because your mommy and daddy are hanging out together doesn’t mean they’re gonna get back together. I don’t know that that’s what daddy says, but it’s New Year’s Eve, so So that means at midnight they’ll have to kiss.

And when Rolf wouldn’t let you kill him, you took over his mind and you knew I loved him and you lied to me over and over and over. They say the first five minutes are the hardest. You okay? You want to go home? Rolf told me what you tried to do to Stephan. He was just lying in that bed defenseless, Gabby, you can’t believe I do something like that.

It must be some kind of false memory. How could it be false? Because you told me yourself when you came back from seeing Wolf, you told me he told you that he, he hadn’t brainwashed stuff and then you believed him. Ra, you were there. She, that’s what she said, isn’t it? Yeah. And it seemed weird to me is why would anyone, especially Gabby ever believe anything that RAW says something?

I don’t know. Something happened, so. Must have because that didn’t happen. I didn’t try to murder Stephan, and if I really did, why didn’t you remember before now?

Okay. Okay. Look, I I can’t think about all of that right now. Right now, what is important is for you to, to take it back. Look brainwashing. Oh, funny you should say that as it happens, I’ve already created an antidote in that box. Wouldn’t it have been ironic in your fury you had destroyed it too?

And Stephan will be back to normal.

What you do?

What was that?

Because he injected me with something. What something that made me forget what you did to Stephan, but I remember now. I remember all of it.

I just wanna make sure that we can remain friends. Are you kidding? Of course. And Steph and I am, I’m so grateful to you for everything and for Pull this evening out of the fire . And I guess it’s gonna sound a bit odd in this moment, but I was really having a good time and I didn’t wanna spoil the evening.

Hey, you didn’t. All right. Look, maybe it was my fault. Maybe I came on too strong. You know, I’m not a fast No, uh, Uhuh. No. If I can’t be sorry, then you can’t either. A no fault kind of friendship then Sounds good to me.

And we’re supposed to be honest with each other, right? Yeah. Okay. Well then, um, this might sound a little bit strange also because it is strange, but, um, I was wondering if we could have that dessert now.

Woman after my own heart.

How could you do this to me? I, I trusted you. I believed you when you told me you love me. I married you for God’s sake. Kathy, let’s just go somewhere. We can talk. Don’t touch. Okay, fine. But we can’t talk about this here with all these people. Okay. Come on. We can work this out, please. I’m not going anywhere.

Neither are you. Miss Damira.

You got us three

here. I win. What again?

I owe you $342,000. Cleric. Hmm. Why are you here? What do you mean I’m babysitting you? Didn’t you wanna go to a party too? Wouldn’t you be more fun than playing Go fish here with me.

I know it sounds crazy, but you imagine you showing up with a shit devil on your altar and I kidnap the thing that she loves the most. Her daughter, she can’t fail. You know, it’s funny you should ask, I was gonna ask you if you’d like to join me on an a. What kind of adventure? Well, it’s kind of top secret.

What do you think you’re doing? My job, you know, this is ludicrous. She’s right. You were really gonna arrest us. Yeah. Based solely on the recovered, perhaps fabricated memory of clearly an unstable woman. I mean, come on, look at her dress. I mean, it alone proves I thought she’s not in her right mind. I’d be careful the way you talk to my sister and to me.

Well, I refuse. Your choice. Of course not whether you’re going to the station, but how

you want me to read you your rights or do you have them memorized from all your other Salem weddings?

Ra ra. Hey, come on. Is this really necessary? Oh, I think it’s best. We both do this by the book. You be okay? Yeah, I’ll be fine. Just get him out of my sight.

Uh, Brady. Sweetheart, are you coming for the water?

That was delicious. Hmm. And what do you say we get outta here? You mean back to Salem? No, I mean, let’s go out, get crazy. Stefan, you’re being really sweet, but you don’t have to pretend. I know that Chloe, I did not bring you to Miami to sleep with you. I brought you here to start the new year together.

There’s still a few hours left. Miami has some of the best nightclubs in the world, so what do you say? Let’s go dancing. Huh? Wait, you dance. I hope that’s not a rhetorical question. Science, you’re obviously dressed for it. You sure you wanna go? Absolut? But look, if you’d rather stay here, watch the ball drop.

I am more than okay with that. I just want to be with you. Shall we? We shall. Ah. Oh wait. We do not wanna waste this. All right. Okay. Hey, happy New Year. All right for you. Thank you. You’re welcome. And for me

to the new year, aren’t we supposed to wait till midnight to say that close enough? Besides new beginning, can’t come soon enough.

I don’t, please don’t try to tell me that I’m wrong about your brother. That I don’t know what I know I wasn’t going to, oh, oh, you probably don’t believe me actually. I do Really, I mean, I just, I I just said your brother tried to murder somebody. I, I’m, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Your brother will sort that out.

You let me get you home. No, I need to find Stephan. I need, dude, do you still have my phone? Yeah.

Says here, Miami gets crazy on New Year’s Eve. You ready for crazy? I mean, I am from Salem, aren’t I? ? Touche. That place looks good,

so I can’t tell anybody. Not even. Well, we can tell her afterwards. It’s kind of like a surprise for her. Hey. Hey. Where are you? Mom’s place. Okay, good. You haven’t left yet. I’m listening about the plan. Hey, ready to calm down? Everything’s fine. We we’re about ready to go. Yeah. Listen, we need to put the brakes.

Hey, this is not the time we get cold feet. No. Listen. It’s not that there’s been an unexpected development. Kristen’s been arrested.

Brave. Don’t you think you should be seeing about Gabby instead of throwing your weight around? She’s falling apart. Oh, she’s not falling apart. She upset. Oh yeah. Hell yeah. Because the man she just married tried to play God with her life. Oh, so now you are the cop, the judge, and the jury. All right. I have been listening to you very closely, and you have not said one word about lawyers because there haven’t been any charges.

This is just a preliminary investigation, although there have been some very serious charges about both of you, so we need to do a follow up and as a means. To that end, you are gonna write down your entire history with Dr. Rolfe and everything that you have done to Stefan Dira. You too. Hmm. Well that will be a very short essay as I have done nothing but rejoice in his returned from the dead.

I concur with Mr. Mera. Let along bet you do well. I don’t need to concur with Mr. Shin. I need to confer with my lawyer and I know technically you don’t have to read me my rights, but I do have the right to demand legal representation. As do I sweetheart. Is there any way a girl can get a drink around here?

Ready? Yeah. Thank you. Let’s go.

Anything voicemail. Uh, Stefan, it’s Gabby. Call me. It’s urgent. I swear to,

well, now the Gabby’s remembered. It’s only a matter of time. False. Stephan learns the truth. Yeah, I don’t see Gabby keeping this to herself

from what she was saying. Ralph told her about Lee and Kristin. She doesn’t seem to know that then she knew everything. That’s right. I’ve given everything that’s crashing down on her. I don’t think there’s any need for her to find that out. Of course, we just wanna do what’s best for Gabby. Don’t me. I mean, that’s why you want me to keep quiet for Gabby obvious.

Obviously I don’t want anyone to know, especially Stephan, but if you think it’s necessary, all that’s up to you. My fate, as they say, is in your hands. I bet you hate that quite a bit.

Wendy’s brother is the one who started all this. I, I don’t see a reason for you to be arrested to Thank you.

I can’t just stand around waiting. I, I have to find Stephan. I’ll take you to the mansion. No, he’s not there. He went to Miami with Chloe. Wait, Nicole, you’re friends with Chloe. Did she tell you where she was staying?

She’s at the Fountain Head Hotel. Only remember, cuz she sent me pictures. Thank you. I just, I have to go to the airport. We’ll, we’ll drive you. We’ll drive. Okay. I have to call son. Um, Hey listen, I’m on the way to the airport. I’m gonna be in Miami.

Chloe is gonna have one heck of a new.

You know, tonight it just goes to show that in Salem making it through the vows does not mean you are home free. You seem to be taking this since tried disastrous weddings apart for the course in this town. I am mean. You don’t seem very taken aback that Lee had. Your brother brainwashed. When one’s father is turned into a computer chip one develops a certain level of Imperturbability.

That’s hard to say. Yeah. Anyway, police are handling it. What else can I do? Fire Lee. He had your brother brainwashed after he didn’t succeed in killing him according to Gabby. Anyway, the question is moot. His father is chairman of the board. This is your family’s company, and Lee tried to murder a member of that family.

I don’t think it’s a hard sell to send and packing. It’s not that simple. Aren’t you angry? Don’t you wanna take him? As I said, it’s not that simple. Why not?

Unless it’s because he could take you down with him.

Kristen has chance lawyering with them? Not yet. Really. I know it’s a holiday, but I figured with their money in history, they’d have hot and cold running. They do. I haven’t let ’em call ’em. Really? They clearly said they wanted representation. I know, but can’t always get what you want.

How long are they gonna keep us waiting? Just relax. Would you? I mean, grave is gonna keep us here as long as possible, but he knows he needs to let us call our lawyers. You think he’s gonna keep us here all night? Yeah, probably. Hey, you do understand that uh, he’s gonna play hardball. You are wrong. His sister, I love his.

Damn it. I, I, I have to get outta here. I have to get to Gabby

The third is, fuck,

you’re shivering. Must be freezing. We’re in such a hurry. I didn’t even have a chance to put it on. Gabby made her flight. Yeah, with, uh, seconds to spare, there was no stopping her. What the hell’s gonna happen when she gets there?

Step open up. Look, I know you’re in there and I know you’re with Chloe, but we have to talk

one way or another. I

Why would you say that? Because you’re just like your father. And nothing goes on in this family, whether it be business or personal that you don’t know about. So when you went over to Johnny after Gabby made her big announcement, you weren’t talking about the canopies.

You know me so well. Mm-hmm. . So what’d you do? Did you hold down Stephan while Ralph went to work? I didn’t do anything. I had no idea what Lee was up to until after the fact, but I, I chose to keep quiet after what Lee did to your brother. You chose to keep quiet. Why? Well, I didn’t know until tonight that Lee tried to kill him and they had already, um, redirected Stephan’s affections from Gabby to Chloe, so it was a moot.

And I wanted Stephan on my side, so I would have enough votes to ask Gabby from Damira.

You probably think I’m a terrible person now, don’t you?

Sorry. Take, uh, take your time. Okay. You. Got a lot to process.

Well, this time feeling horrible about not telling Tappy Whitley had done, but it all came out anyway. Yeah. Hey, at least we didn’t have to be the ones to say it.

You almost did, didn’t you? You were about to stop the whole. I was, because when I saw a Gabby standing there about to marry a man who was lied to her, manipulated her, I didn’t know if I could live with myself if I speak up. Then I saw my brother’s face and I realized how much he loves Gabby and I, I, I couldn’t go through with it.


But just as I said, it all came out anyway even more than we knew.

Do you think it’s true? But we really did try to murder stuff. I don’t know. I don’t know.

Please God, don’t let a.

You know, winching when told the justice of the peace that she had something to say, thought it was all over then, but for some reason she changed her mind. Hmm. Probably realized what outing you would do to the Shin Dynasty Fortune Truth that would cost her Cold Hawk cash. You’re completely cynical, aren’t you?

Okay. She was protecting her big brother who she adores. Does that sound better to you? None of it matters. Since the fact that, uh, your little bride remembered her encounter with the man that you hired to dry clean her husband’s brain, it, it doesn’t make any sense. H h h how could her memory come back like that?

And, and why didn’t Ralph get what? Ralph kept calling. I couldn’t talk to him. Ra was there. I I, I, I had to hang up on him. Do you think he was trying to warn me? I mean, would it have made a difference? , come on, Lee Gabby’s memory came back and your brother-in-law is the police commissioner and he’s very fierce about his family.

I’m not sure this is a good idea. The only thing we have right now is what Gabby said she remembered. And the longer we hold them here without just cause and more likely we’ll have their attorney screaming false. Cause Paul Kings can go up and smoke. That’s right. It is. Mm-hmm. . We’re gonna have to let ’em go.

So why the delay? Well, think about it from their point of view. They’re in there thinking that we’re out here feverishly scrambling to get a. And when we let ’em go, they’re gonna think that we weren’t able to make the case that we backed down and the leave here with a false sense of purity. Yeah. Hmm.

Although, uh, as dramatic as it was, I wish Gabby hadn’t been so public with her accusations that Lee and Kristen still think that they had gotten away with everything. At least we’re able to nail down the warrant.

Well, I would say that they have been in there long enough. First thing, tomorrow morning, I start building a case against Mr. Lee Shin. Put him away for a very, very long time.

So what is going on? We’re letting them go. You and Miss America can still ring in the new year together. It’s enjoy.

Eric hates me. The plan’s back on

Okay. I gotta admit that is some of the most fun I’ve had in a really long time. Right. I agree. Mike, thank you for picking up the ride share, by the way. I can’t believe I forgot my, keep kidding me. Don’t worry about.

There’s something wrong

Message from Gabby

ej Aaron, wait. What you did doesn’t change my impression of you in any. I’ve always thought you were a terrible person.

Well, I think that I’m a terrible person too, so maybe that’s why we get along so well. We do, don’t we? You and I don’t have to maintain any illusions of anything at all. Yeah, . But we’re not really the same. In your very own perverse, opaque way, you’re actually a very decent person. None of my other ex-husbands would agree with you on that.

Well, none of your other ex-husbands deserved you. Aw. It’s your humility that melts my heart. EJ . So how long has Johnny known.

Are you cla vo ? Uh, well, I’m no genius, but as Gabby spilled the beans, you went straight to Johnny. No. Sounds like damage control to me. He knew that I knew. I asked him not to give me away and he promise not to say anything, but none of it matters anyway. It’s only a matter of time before Stephan finds out everything and not much time at that.

Since I told Gabby where he and Chloe are staying, I, oh, I’m so sorry.

Something funny . I was just thinking. Miami is going to see some real fireworks tonight.

I keep thinking fine. Not all of what Lee did couldn’t have kept a secret, but now

gwe, I I thought you were at the police station. They let me go. Do, do you know where Gabby is? I have to talk to her. You. Who took us to the airport? She went to Miami to find stuff. Why would Gabby be calling you don’t know. Don’t care. Probably a gloat about the wedding.

All right. It’s getting late. I’m gonna go downstairs, check about booking another room. You don’t have to do that, Chloe. Seriously, I, I don’t. No, I wanna stay. Really, really, I had a really amazing night with you, and I don’t want this night to end.

She went to Miami. I imagine she feels that s Stephan has a right to know what happened to. What do you to Tim? I, I, I don’t think we have anything to talk about Lee. And for the record, from now on, you’re on your own.

You were a busy girl in 2022 coming. When you actually decided to screw with Stephan’s head, your brother’s head, did that bother you at all? I did it to be with you and Rachel, and this is before I knew anything about the orchid, right? So Stephan was just, uh, collateral damage. You know, I’m afraid that you’re gonna have to be self-righteous alone.

I’m exhausted. I’m gonna go give Rachel a kiss goodnight, and then I’m gonna head to bed myself. Tip the sitter generously. Eric’s been outta work, so, uh, I think we can use.

Want me to take you home? Yeah, thanks. Okay.

And guess what? It’s uh, it’s almost.

It’s just about midnight. One, two. Watch the countdown. Uh, yeah. Why not?

Well, for the bitter end, it’s been one hell of a year. Yeah. Next year has to be better. No way to go but up.

Happy year. Happy New Year.

It’s midnight. Happy New Year, Jada. Happy New Year, Ray.

Uh, happy New Year. Happy new.

I have to say I like the way this New Year’s starting out. Me too. That seems like you were more ready to move on from Brady than you thought. Huh? Brady? Who?

Brady, Rachel’s gone.

Happy New Year. Happy New Year.
