Chloe: [ Laughing ] Wait. Who do you think is having more fun at the swings — my mom or miles?

Kevin: Definitely Esther. I mean, look at that smile! Hey, buddy.

Chloe: Well, I’m glad that the kids have their grandma because we are definitely off the list of Aunt Lauren’s favorite things.

Kevin: What are you talking about? She adores Bella and Miles.

Chloe: She hasn’t liked any of the photos that I’ve posted of the kids in their Halloween costumes, and normally she is the first one to react, with kissy faces and emojis. And — nope, nothing, nada.

Kevin: Maybe she’s busy.

Chloe: Or she’s still royally pissed off that I let Sally go to Tuscany and swap out Victoria’s wedding dress.

Kevin: And you have deduced all that because she hasn’t liked your photos?

Chloe: Of her niece and nephew in the cutest outfits ever?

Kevin: I think you’re reading way too much into this.


Sally: Adam. Glad you’re here.

Adam: Uh, has ChanceCom joined the list of media companies that’s very eager for a scoop on the future of Newman Fashions?

Sally: Unfortunately, no. Just trying to dig up some dirt on you. Is that about right?

Billy: That is 100% correct.

Adam: Oh. Harassing my employees. I think this actually is a new low for you, Billy.

[ Sniffs ] What is that I smell? It’s the sad stench of desperation..

    11/6/21 (Sa.)(11:29 PM) on NBC. Kieran Culkin is the guest host, and Ed Sheeran is the musical guest. Promo
    From Vulture.com: “Kieran Culkin, star of Succession and Daddy’s favorite, is set to host the November 6 episode of Saturday Night Live, along with musical guest Ed Sheeran. SNL’s eclectic mix of hosts this season has so far included Owen Wilson, Kim Kardashian West, Rami Malek, and last night’s Jason Sudeikis. While Culkin will make his hosting debut next week, it will be Sheeran’s third appearance on the show. Culkin, of course, currently stars as the perfectly detestable Roman Roy on Succession, so we can probably expect a parody sketch or two about the HBO show. Culkin’s Succession co-star Nicholas Braun also made an appearance on last night’s SNL episode, so we wouldn’t be surprised if he pops up next week, too. Here’s hoping J. Smith-Cameron stops by as well.”
    There was some question as to whether Ed Sheeran would be able to appear because he was quarantined in October due to having COVID-19. However, he has recovered and was given the all-clear to travel to the US for his appearance on SNL.

    Two-Hour Program Reports How the Murderer Remained on the Loose, Killing At Least Seven More Before Arrest
    How did a bizarre confession derail the investigation into the first murder committed by Keith Hunter Jesperson, the notorious “Happy Face Killer,” and allow him to remain on the loose, killing at least seven more women? A new two-hour “20/20” reports on how after authorities discovered the body of Taunja Bennett in the Columbia Gorge in 1990, 57-year-old Laverne Pavlinac confessed to the police that she took part in the crime. She provided convincing evidence that implicated her and her boyfriend, 39-year-old John Sosnovske, in the murder, and they were convicted and sentenced to life in prison. In a shocking twist, Pavlinac’s confession turned out to be false in an attempt to escape what she described as an abusive relationship with Sosnovske. With reporting by “Nightline” co-anchor Juju Chang, “20/20” dives into how Pavlinac was able to dupe police, featuring audio from the couple’s confessions and police interviews, and from the hidden microphone installed in Pavlinac’s apartment when she tried to convince Sosnovske that he was involved in the murder. The two-hour program features an exclusive interview with Melissa Gavin, a friend of Julie Winningham, the last person Jesperson killed before his arrest; and new interviews with John Ingram, lead detective who investigated Bennett’s murder; Jim McIntyre, prosecutor for Pavlinac and Sosnovske’s cases; Darlene Carpenter and Bonnie McAlpine, Pavlinac’s daughters; Michelle White, Bennett’s sister; Melissa Moore, Jesperson’s daughter; and Alafair Burke, bestselling author and former prosecutor who based her first novel on the case. The program also features Chang’s interview with Jesperson from the ABC News archives and gives an inside look at how police ultimately tracked Jesperson down. “20/20” airs Friday, Nov. 5 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.
    ABC News’ “20/20” is an award-winning primetime program anchored by David Muir and Amy Robach.

    “48 Hours” Investigates in “The Diary of Martha Moxley” Saturday, Nov. 6 Preview
    Since 1975, the tony neighborhood of Belle Haven, in Greenwich, Conn., has been haunted by the death of Martha Moxley, a 15-year-old girl who was bludgeoned with a golf club. 48 HOURS and correspondent Erin Moriarty take a new look at the case through the first television interviews with two of Moxley’s friends, and through her own writings, in “The Diary of Martha Moxley” to be broadcast Saturday Nov. 6 (10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+.
    What happened to Moxley has been a mystery that has gripped Belle Haven and the nation, aided by the fact that Moxley spent her last night alive with young members of the Skakel family, cousins of the Kennedys. In 2000, Michael Skakel was charged with her murder. He was convicted in 2002 and sentenced to 20 years to life in prison. After spending more than a decade in prison for the murder, in 2013 a judge granted Skakel a new trial, saying his first attorney failed to adequately represent him. In 2018, the Connecticut Supreme Court vacated his murder conviction and ordered a new trial. But in 2020, prosecutors said they would not retry him.
    Now, for the first time since Martha Moxley was murdered, her childhood friends Richard Burns and Tori Holland are speaking together to 48 HOURS.
    “This little girl … this cute, little amazing girl was murdered brutally by somebody. And I think it was somebody in that neighborhood,” says Burns.
    Holland and Burns talk with Moriarty about living in the Belle Haven area at the time and share their thoughts on the Skakel family, who have been at the heart of the investigation since the start. Martha Moxley wrote about socializing with the Skakel brothers, Michael and Tommy, in her diary.
    “Their father traveled quite a bit,” says Holland. “They were allowed to do whatever they’d like.”
    Says Burns: “They definitely got into a lot of trouble. … There was a lot of partying going on in that house.”
    But Skakel cousin Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., says: “The evidence is much stronger in suggesting that other people may have committed the crime.”
    Should authorities have looked elsewhere?
    48 HOURS: “The Diary of Martha Moxley” is produced by Asena Basak and Josh Gelman. Hannah Vair is the associate producer. Morgan Canty is the broadcast associate. Gregory McLaughlin, Phil Tangel and Jud Johnston are the editors. Patti Aronofsky is the senior producer. Nancy Kramer is the executive editor. Judy Tygard is the executive producer.

Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

Belle goes home where Shawn startles her in a Halloween mask. Belle jokes that she’ll make him pay for that. Belle brings up that they are going to dinner with Ciara and Ben. Shawn adds that it sounds like Ciara has some news for them.

Ben visits his sister Jordan’s grave and says he often thinks about how good of a sister she was when they were kids and now he’s thinking about having kids of his own, so he really wants to give them a better life than they had, so they don’t end up how they did. Ciara joins Ben and asks if he’s okay.

Johnny and Allie question the Ouija board saying the Devil is in the DiMera Crypt. Johnny then asks the spirits if the Devil is at the DiMera Crypt and the board goes to Yes.

The Devil thought it would be fitting to bring John to the DiMera Crypt as his last resting place. The Devil says Marlena stopped him from killing John at the chapel but now he’s back to finish what he started. John says he can’t. The Devil responds that he can and will. The Devil adds that John may have banished him three decades ago but he’s back now and John is no match for him as he then chokes John.

Ciara tells Ben that she got his text so she knew he would be here and adds that he could’ve asked her to come with him. Ben says that Jordan terrorized her so he wouldn’t ask her to come pay her respects. Ciara understands Jordan was sick. Ben says he was too and credits Marlena and Ciara for him still being here. Ciara asks if Ben really came just to visit Jordan or if he’s still afraid that their baby might end up here.

Shawn tells Belle that he told Ciara that they would meet them at the Pub after Belle was done visiting her parents. Shawn asks how they are doing. Belle responds that she only saw her mom, who said John left town on a mysterious mission. Belle adds that Marlena seemed okay but remarks that she’s taking kind of a “devil may care” attitude since she was literally dressed as the Devil. Shawn calls that an odd choice for a Halloween costume, given her history. Belle then reveals to Shawn that Johnny’s movie project is now “Possessed: The Marlena Evans Story”. Shawn can’t believe it and wonders how John feels about that. Belle guesses John can’t be happy about it but Marlena seems totally into it. Belle suggests maybe Marlena is really happy to exorcise those demons once and for all.

Allie tells Johnny that the game is stupid and she thinks he’s just trying to freak her out. Johnny assures he wouldn’t do that. Allie calls the Ouija board fake. Johnny says the only way to find out is for them go to the Crypt and look for the Devil.

John tells the Devil that he’ll never get away with this because his family will never stop looking for him. The Devil argues that John is underestimating him because he’s gone to great lengths to make sure he doesn’t trip her up this time. The Devil adds that Belle is back in town and wanted to reunite with John, but he had Marlena explain that he’s on an extended business trip and soon, Marlena will be notified that John died in a terrible mishap overseas. The Devil declares that no one will have any idea that he was the one who ended John’s life.

Tony goes in to the living room of the DiMera Mansion where he startles Anna, who is reading Johnny’s movie script. Anna asks if he’s read it and says it’s incredible. Anna insists that they really need to be involved in the movie. Tony reminds her that they can’t because EJ wants Johnny to work at DiMera, not making movies. Anna reveals that’s old news as EJ is not only investing in the movie now, he is playing the role of John Black. Anna declares that if EJ can be in the movie, she thinks Tony should be too. Anna wants to call Johnny now but Tony stops her.

Allie refuses to go to the DiMera Crypt. Johnny asks if she is scared of coming face to face with the Devil. Allie says she already has plans with Tripp and asks if he’s scared to go alone. Johnny says he’s not scared but inspired, as there’s no better way to research his film than to come face to face with the Devil himself and he intends on getting it all on film. Allie feels he’s wasting his time. Johnny asks why the spirits would tell them that the Devil is at the Crypt if he’s not. Allie argues that there are no spirits and there’s nothing in the Crypt. Johnny says they will see about that.

John tries to get through to Marlena. The Devil says Marlena tried fighting him yesterday and it was a valiant effort, but she fell short. John knows she’s still in there fighting and urges her to keep fighting for their love.

Ben tells Ciara that he can’t pretend he’s completely over his worries about having a kid and thinking about how Jordan turned up but he has to trust that Ciara’s goodness will shine through. Ciara encourages that their baby will have a house full of love unlike Ben and Jordan had. Ciara calls the place kind of creepy as Ben acknowledges that they are in a cemetery on Halloween night. Ciara mentions Shawn and Belle wanted to have dinner at the Pub but she understands if he’s not up to it. Ben tells her that he wants to see them and he’s sure. Ben decides he’s said what he needed to say to Jordan and he feels a lot better. Ben and Ciara then walk away from the grave.

Ciara and Ben meet Shawn and Belle at the Brady Pub. Shawn mentions that Abe is doing a lot better. Ciara brings up Jake being brought in for the shooting and says it’s so crazy because they were with Gabi and Jake right before the shooting as they were going to have breakfast. Shawn asks if Jake was acting strangely or if seemed agitated at all. Ben explains that Ciara was inside with Gabi and he was with Jake right before he left. Shawn asks if Jake said anything that he could use in the investigation.

Anna questions Tony not wanting to be in Johnny’s movie. Tony reminds her that Abigail is playing Marlena. Anna suggests he can rewrite his character and he’d be in a pivotal role. Tony disagrees but Anna insists and goes over the story of how Tony was married to Kristen while Kristen was secretly in love with John.

The Devil continues to choke John as John pleads for help. The Devil tells him that no one is coming for him and he can feel the life draining out of his body. Johnny arrives at the Crypt and tries to enter but it’s locked. Johnny finds that weird as there always used to be a key in the lock. The Devil demands John let go. John says never. Johnny then knocks on the door, asking if Lucifer is in there. John tries yelling for help so the Devil backhands John. Johnny introduces himself and says he’d love to meet the Devil if he’s in there. Johnny is about to give up when suddenly the door opens and Marlena walks out dressed as the Devil, confusing Johnny.

Shawn asks Ben what Jake said to him outside. Ben responds that Jake told him he had something to take care of and then he took off. Shawn asks if Ben suspected something was wrong. Ben says he’s just telling him everything Jake told him. Shawn tells him to let him know if he thinks of anything else. Ciara questions Shawn coming to give the third degree or to enjoy the food and hear about their honeymoon. Belle agrees with Ciara. Ciara praises New Orleans for their honeymoon. Shawn hopes they went to all the places Bo and Hope went to, which Ciara confirms including Oak Alley. Shawn asks what else they did. Ben jokes that they did the usual honeymoon stuff as they helped the ISA recover a stolen gemstone. Ciara calls that a really long story that she’ll tell them about later but right now they have some really special news to share. They ask what it is. Ciara says as wonderful as the trip ended up being, it helped them come to a pretty big life changing decision about their future. Ciara then announces they are trying to have a baby which excites Belle and Shawn.

Johnny questions what Marlena is doing here and dressed like that. Marlena says she finished his script and wanted him to know she liked it. Johnny thanks her but says that still doesn’t explain what she’s doing in the DiMera Family Crypt. Marlena claims that he wasn’t home so she decided to take a stroll and then found the key in the lock here so she decided to take a moment to pay respects to his grandfather. Johnny questions her being dressed as the Devil. Marlena claims it’s just a Halloween costume that she did for him. Marlena talks about finding his script powerful and accurate. Johnny notes that the Crypt could be a really cool location for his movie. Johnny starts to head inside when Marlena forcefully grabs his arm, warning him not to go in there. Johnny questions the problem with him going inside. John remains tied up.

Tony tells Anna that a less confident man would feel threatened by her referring to John as sexy. Anna says she’s just being honest about how it was 30 years ago and how John was to Kristen according to the script. Anna says that Kristen was deeply conflicted. Tony thought the movie was about Marlena. Anna feels Kristen drives the action as she’s one of the first to recognize that evil has come to Salem. Tony wonders who Johnny will cast as Kristen. Anna feels there’s only one person perfect for the role and that’s her. Tony decides he needs a drink. Tony questions Anna wanting to play Kristen. Anna says if Tony is playing Tony, it just makes sense. Tony reminds her that Kristen left “Tony” for John. Anna points out that “Tony” was really Andre then. Anna doesn’t know why it matters and why Tony is being so resistent. Tony is not enthusiastic about revisiting a dark chapter in his family’s history. Anna suggests they can ask Johnny to rewrite their subplot to highlight their love story and in this version, they can end up living happily ever after just like them as they kiss.

Marlena tells Johnny that there is something in the Crypt that she doesn’t want him to see and claims there’s a big rat inside. Johnny says he’s not scared of a rat and is writing one in to his movie as some people call rats “the devil’s disciples.” Marlena thinks there are non rodent disciples and suggests Johnny stay away from there. Johnny asks if she’s sure she didn’t see anything else in there. Marlena says she doesn’t think so and locks the Crypt. She then questions what brought Johnny out here. Johnny says it will sound weird. Marlena says not much surprises her. Johnny then explains that he and Allie were using a Ouija board and they asked it if the Devil is in Salem and the board spelled out that he was here at this Crypt. Marlena jokes that the spirits are on to her because of her costume. Johnny asks if Marlena believes in it. Marlena guesses she should after what happened to her and says she’d be crazy not to believe in the supernatural being real. Johnny says that’s why he’s making his movie. Marlena knows he has skeptics but thinks it’s important that he carry out his vision. Marlena remarks that the movie will let people know there are forces out there that people can’t understand and that they have no idea of what the Devil is capable of doing.

Ciara and Ben assure Shawn and Belle that they put a lot of thought in to this decision. Ben talks about his mental illness history and how Marlena reassured him that the love they give their child will be what’s most important. Ben says Marlena told them to have a child and ever since then she’s been really making sure they are moving forward with the plan. Ciara comments that Marlena has been really invested in her having a baby. Belle notes that Marlena doesn’t usually tell people what to do or make it so personal. Shawn yawns so Ciara asks if all this baby talk is making him tired or boring him. Shawn says he’s got jet lag and suggests they go home and continue this another time. Ben tells him to go ahead and get some sleep as they hug. Belle wishes them luck with the baby making. Belle and Shawn then exit the Pub together. Ben questions Ciara barely touching her food. Ciara responds that she’s actually not that hungry and her stomach has been funky all day. Ben asks if she’s not feeling well. Ciara thinks it might be something else and reveals that she stopped by to get a pregnancy test before she came to find him.

Anna asks Tony if they should offer their services to Johnny and request a rewrite. Tony says if he takes out the conflict between Tony and Kristen, it waters down the story. Anna feels he is intrigued. Tony doesn’t think an audience would like to see a married couple drinking champagne and talking about how in love they are. Anna disagrees and thinks people love to watch other people in love. Tony jokes that Anna knows more about drama than he does. Anna suggests she find a good scene to rehearse together and then they will be prepared to pitch to Johnny. Tony questions if he will really want to cast them. Anna thinks he’ll be begging to have them on camera.

Johnny asks if he can take a picture of Marlena in her costume because Allie told him that the Ouija board was nonsense and that he wasn’t going to find anything out here, so he wants to show her that she was wrong. Marlena points out that he didn’t find the Devil. Johnny says she was here dressed like that so the Spirits didn’t lie. Johnny hears a noise from inside and asks if Marlena heard that. Inside, John tries to break free from being tied up. Marlena claims she didn’t hear anything but Johnny feels he heard chains. Marlena jokes that maybe it’s the spirits. Johnny doesn’t think ghosts rattle chains and questions her not hearing that. Marlena says it’s his imagination and tells him he will make a wonderful movie. Johnny suggests they get out of here. Marlena tells him to go ahead and she’ll catch up, so Johnny exits. The Devil then declares that he will deal with John another time.

Belle and Shawn return home. Shawn can’t believe Ciara is going to be a mom. Belle says she’s so happy for them. Shawn mentions that it sounds like Marlena really helped them out. Belle is glad Marlena was able to be there for them, but thinks it’s strange that Marlena keeps following up to make sure they are still trying to have a baby. Shawn thinks it makes sense since she’s always been really invested in Ben’s health and happiness. Belle feels Marlena seems a little overly invested in them having a child.

Ben asks if Ciara really thinks she could be pregnant now already. Ciara notes that she is a day late. Ben guesses they should take home so she can take the test. Ciara says she could take it right now and encourages Ben to breathe. Ciara tells him it will be okay as she kisses him. Ciara says she’ll be right back and heads to the restroom as Ben remains nervous.

Tony tells Anna that all this talk about the past reminds him of when he first came to Salem. They can’t believe that was 40 years ago. Anna remarks that a lot of crazy things have happened since then. Tony says the most wonderful thing of all was falling in love with her and that marrying her was the smartest thing he ever did as they flash back to their marriage. Tony repeats that coming to Salem was the best decision he ever made. Tony calls Anna the light of his life. Anna tells him to never forget it as they kiss.

Devil Marlena remarks that it was so nice to be back among the dead tonight, especially the really bad ones. The Devil comes across Jordan’s grave and says it looks like Ben came to visit his sister. The Devil declares that soon, Jordan won’t be the only bad seed in the family…

Ciara returns from the restroom and kisses Ben. Ben asks if it was just a stomach ache and suggests it was too soon anyways. Ciara then reveals the pregnancy test is positive and announces they are having a baby. They get excited as Ben tells her that he loves her and loves that they are about to have a baby together. Ben and Ciara then kiss.

Devil Marlena picks up the flowers Ben left at Jordan’s grave and tosses them aside. The Devil then declares that Ben’s child will be his and nothing can stop that, not Marlena and certainly not John.

John continues to struggle with being tied up in the crypt, saying he’s got to get out of here and save Marlena. John declares that he has to save all of Salem from pure evil.

Devil Marlena brings up Allie not believing in the supernatural and guesses he’ll just have to make her a believer. The Devil then stands over Charlie Dale’s grave and calls for Allie’s rapist, Charlie, to rise up and prove that his powers are real. A hand then emerges from Charlie’s grave.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Amanda: No word from abby?

Devon: Nope. Not even a text.

Amanda: Well, it’s understandable, you know, given everything that she’s going through. Not knowing if her husband is dead or alive, it must be torture.

Devon: I’m just glad that she hasn’t lost hope yet, ’cause if worst comes to worse and chance didn’t make it, I’m legitimately worried about what this is gonna do to abby.

[ Knock on door ]

Victor: Hello? Abby? Hello? Sweetheart, what are you doing there? Huh?

Abby: Do you have any news? Did they find chance?

Victor: No. Not yet. I just came to check up on you. Why is the door unlocked?

Abby: I don’t know how that happened. I was just trying to do some relaxation exercises.

Victor: Well, sit down. When is the last time you ate something or slept?

Abby: Dad, I don’t know. I’m a new mom. I’m always hungry and tired.

Victor: Sweetheart, you need to keep up your strength, okay?

Abby: Dad, what I really need right now is information, and i can’t find anythinG. I need to know what happened to chance.

Victor: Why don’t you go to the kitchen right now and make yourself some hot tea and some toast?

Abby: I’m fine.

Victor: No, sweetheart, you need strength right now. Please do as I say, and next time, keep the door locked.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Mariah: So I texted abby earlier just to let her know that we were thinking about her. Thought I’d get something back, maybe a text, but, no, nothing.

Tessa: Well, let’s operate under “no news is good news” in this scenario.

Mariah: I don’t know if I can do that, because any lack of information is — it’s just gonna stress abby out more.

Tessa: I just wish that someone would tell abby that chance is okay and that he’s coming home.

Mariah: But what if christine said is true? What if chance is gone?

Tessa: That would be absolutely devastating for abby.

Mariah: Not just for abby. I’m thinking about somebody else. Poor little bowie.

Nick: I got all your favorites — eggs, bacon, strawberries, yogurt, some oj, freshly squeezed, of course.

Phyllis: So you’re hoping that I forget about our argument because you got yogurt and fruit?

Nick: Look, I’m not trying to use romance to dodge our issues, alright? This is just a small gesture on my part to say to you, “let’s work this out.” I’m not looking for a quick fix. I know it’s gonna take some time. So if we can just sit down and share a meal and get comfortable, then we can have that talk — you know, the real-deal talk, the nitty-gritty, no-holds-barred, because that’s what it’s gonna take, phyllis, for us to get past this.

Phyllis: Alright, I’ll give it a try. Oh, man that is wrinkly.

Nick: I mean, this feels like a year ago, doing the exact same thing. We were holed up in this room, dissecting our relationship, wondering where we were headed, if anywhere.

Phyllis: Are we just going backwards and going in circles?

Nick: No, I — I think even the strongest of relationships needs to be examined from time to time, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, I suppose.

Nick: Phyllis, I don’t regret for one second the last year and a half of this.

Phyllis: I don’t either. I don’t either. But…

Nick: But what?

Phyllis: But we’re doing well.

[ Sighs ] Something is off, and I don’t know what it is, and, you know, it’s like we’re going backwards.

Nick: You really think that?

Phyllis: Yeah, don’t you? I mean, I want to get to where it was good. I want to be there again. How do we get there? I mean, do you want to try, at least?

Nick: Of course I do. Don’t you?

Phyllis: Yeah, of course i do. I mean, where do we start?

Nick: We could start with an apology.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I don’t have anything to apologize for.

Nick: Yeah, I — I get that. I’m, of course, talking about me. I’m sorry.

Mariah: If bowie loses his dad before he even gets the chance to meet him, that would be too cruel.

Tessa: Please, don’t go down that road. We should follow abby’s lead and stay positive. She’s certain that someone just made a mistake and that he’s coming home to her, so we should share that mind-set.

Mariah: But abby is so fervent in her belief that chance is still alive that it’s running her to the ragged edge, and it’s having an effect on bowie’s emotional state. I can tell.

Tessa: I’m worried.

Mariah: Yeah, we all are.

Tessa: No. About your attachment to the baby. Please don’t go overboard.

Mariah: Relax. It’s really not like that. I mean, naturally, if I’m gonna be worried for abby, my thoughts are gonna drift to the baby. And the possibility of chance being gone, I mean, it’s put a lot of things into perspective. It’s really made me appreciate the gifts that I have in my life. Like you.

Tessa: That’s very sweet.

Noah: Hey!

Mariah: Hey.

Tessa: Hey, how are you?

Mariah: You’re running. What’s wrong? Is somebody chasing you, or…?

Noah: [ Chuckles ] I started jogging in london.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Tessa: Is that abby?

Mariah: No, it’s work. Holiday promotional stuff. I need to check in.

Tessa: You’re going into the office?

Mariah: Yeah, but I will catch up with you later.

Tessa: Okay.

Mariah: Alright, I’ll see you.

Noah: See you.

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Noah: What was that about abby?

Tessa: Oh. You haven’t heard.

Noah: What’s going on? Should I call her or…?

Tessa: Oh, no, no. Don’t bother her.

Noah: Seems like it’s weighing on you and mariah, so if you want to talk about it, I’m here.

Tessa: Thanks.

Noah: And if you’re worried about confidentiality, you can trust me.

Tessa: Well, since it affects mariah and your family, you should know. It’s about chance.

Abby: Is he still sleeping?

Victor: Yes, adorable and very peacefully, you know?

Abby: Good.

Victor: I thought ashley was here.

Abby: She was, yeah. She stayed here last night and took care of us, but I sent her home so she could get some rest.

Victor: Mm-hmm. You get something to eat?

Abby: I did, yes. Thank you. I got a sandwich, and you were right. It’s gonna help me keep up my energy while I search for chance.

Victor: Are you searching personally on this or directly?

Abby: Yes.

Victor: Oh.

Abby: I mean, I haven’t heard anything from christine since before I told you what happened. I’m not gonna just sit around here, waitinG.

Victor: I understand.

Abby: Dad, look. There was an explosion at this building in valencia, spain. I found the location from reports online. A building isn’t gonna just explode without someone noticing. And there’s nothing on survivors or victims, but [Sighs] Dad, what little information I can find, it says that it’s the result of a gas leak.

Victor: Uh-huh.

Abby: But christine said it was because of a bomb. Look, I don’t care how it happened, I just — I need proof that my husband is alive.

Victor: I understand.

[ Sighs ] I have some news.

Abby: You do? Why didn’t you say something sooner?

Victor: Because I wanted to make sure that you had something to eat first, okay? Christine was right. This building did not explode because of a gas leak. Someone put a bomb in there after they found out that chance used that building as a safe house. And he and his colleagues were directly targeted. Nope

Abby: Chance’s undercover work was exposed. His agents were left vulnerable, but, dad, that doesn’t mean that anything happened to him. He could just be laying low, trying to protect of his team. I mean, that’s exactly what chance would do. He would be putting their safety first.

Victor: Sweetheart, his bravery has never been questioned. He is a tough, brave guy. Now, from my sources, I know that this incident, this bombing, is very high on the list of priorities for the state department. So while they’re still searching…

Abby: Searching — see, they haven’t given up.

Victor: Let me finish, my love.

[ Sighs ] Apparently, four of his colleagues that he was working with have been classified as… “killed in the line of duty.”

Abby: But, dad, chance was not on that list. He was not one of the four, and that has to mean something. I am telling you, he was not in that building. He’s probably safe somewhere, and when the coast is clear, he will come home.

Amanda: Let’s not jump to worst-case scenario. You know, chance is smart and savvy. Remember how he helped you nail colin when he was trying to steal your inheritance?

Devon: Oh, sure, I do, but i still don’t understand why he would bring a personally engraved watch on such a dangerous mission and risk blowing his cover with it.

Amanda: The watch was found in the safe house. He didn’t have it on him.

Devon: Either way, why are you gonna risk it? Why risk anything like that when you have a family to come back home to?

Amanda: You’re right.

Devon: And meanwhile, abby’s living through a nightmare.

Amanda: He has been gone a long time.

Devon: And the worst part of this now is I know that what was keeping her going was the idea of her husband coming back home. That was the light at the end of the tunnel for her, and if that’s taken away, she’s gonna need a lot of support from the people who love her.

Amanda: And she will get it, if it comes to that.

Devon: [ Scoffs ]

Nick: I apologize that things got so brittle between us in italy.

Phyllis: Well, milan was fun.

Nick: Milan was fun. Kyle and summer’s wedding was a blast. Then we got to tuscany, and my sister’s wedding, not so much. There was a lot going on with my family. Um…I took that out on you. I let my family get to me, and i wish I had never let that happen.

Phyllis: I appreciate that. Thanks. But I thought we were having what you called a hard-core conversation right now.

Nick: We are.

Phyllis: Oh, well, not — not really. I mean, let’s really be honest, ’cause things have not been great between us — I mean brittle, they’ve been brittle — for a while now. And we’ve been really out of sync.

Nick: When do you think that happened?

Phyllis: I can’t really pinpoint it, but my guess is around the time I went after sally and tara because of what they did to summer. And all you did was keep on giving me warnings. That’s all you did. That’s all you said during that time. You said, “phyllis, watch out. Phyllis, don’t do that. Phyllis –”

[ Sighs ]

Nick: But eventually, i supported your plan. I just was concerned that you were gonna go overboard.

Phyllis: Really? ‘Cause that’s kind of something I do. I go overboard. You know, it’s in my dna. It’s who I am. And you telling me not to do that, I just — I don’t get it.

Nick: I never meant to make you feel like you couldn’t be who you are. I just — you know, I was nervous that summer was gonna get hurt or that you were gonna get in trouble. I was just trying to be the voice of reason.

Phyllis: Okay, you know that’s never gonna work on me.

Nick: What?

Phyllis: Reason.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Sighs ] We know each other so well. Too well. There are profound differences between us.

Nick: I agree with that.

Phyllis: I mean, nick, you had to have known I was gonna go after sally and tara. After what they did to summer, you had to have known I was gonna fight back. By you telling me not to, by you telling me to stop, it just goes against who I am. I mean, it was almost hurtful.

Nick: Well, you know how much my family means to me. They’re a big part of my life. I am very involved in their lives, particularly my sister’s and my mother and sometimes even my father. I’m not proud of that, but it’s who I am.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Believe me, I know.

Nick: Well, you took issue with that in italy. Do you honestly think that was productive?

[ Sneeze ]

Phyllis: Wow, you sound mad.

Nick: Not mad.

Phyllis: You’re not, really? Seriously? Because you were mad in tuscany. Did we ever resolve that? See, that’s the thing, that’s the thing is we have these little grievances, we have these little issues that we just don’t deal with, and then something else comes along and then it turns into a big issue, and we just ignore it and fix it by, you know, hopping into bed with each other.

Nick: I mean, that’s accurate. I’m amazed that method has worked as long as it has for us.

Phyllis: Okay. Alright, well, let’s not do that anymore. If we want to make this work, we have to do things differently. Have we just been taking each other for granted for the last year and a half?

Nick: No, I, uh… I always appreciate you.

Phyllis: Well, I appreciate you. I think that you like the fun, frothy side of me, but I think there are certain parts of my personality that you are not fond of.

Nick: This conversation feels familiar.

Phyllis: Yeah, I think we had it a year ago. And we agreed that we were going to let each other be who we are and accept aspects of each other’s personality. I think we agreed.

Nick: Yes, we did.

Phyllis: Yeah, but right now, we’re arguing about not allowing either one of us to be ourselves.

Nick: I — [ Sighs ] I mean, do you have to love every single thing about the person you’re with? I think that is unreasonable. It doesn’t matter how good of a match you are, there’s gonna be something about that person that you don’t care for.

Phyllis: Okay, yeah, I know, but those are little things. We’re talking about huge chunks of our personality that we’re not fond of.

Nick: Well, it never really seemed to matter until right now.

Phyllis: You’re always gonna be close to your family, aren’t you?

Nick: Yes. We’ve talked about that many times.

Phyllis: Okay, alright. I know.

[ Sighs ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Your relationship with your family is strained now. But you’re gonna come around like you always do. You’re gonna be sitting at thanksgiving dinner, laughing with them, as if nothing ever happened. You’re never gonna change. Your family’s never gonna change. I’m never gonna change. You know who I am. I’m reckless and I’m wild and I’m brash. So this whole time, have we just been skating around and ignoring every single issue that is bringing us to this conversation right now?

Devon: Gosh, you know what? We’ve been talking so much about abby’s situation, I haven’t asked you about sutton’s trial.

Amanda: Oh, yeah. It’s coming up soon.

Devon: I know it is, and I’m not very happy that michael’s trying to pressure you into testifying against your grandfather. I don’t think it’s fair.

Amanda: Yes, it may not be, but I have made a decision. I haven’t told you about it because you’ve been so consumed with everything going on with abby.

Devon: You gonna do it?

Amanda: Yes. I’m gonna take the stand.

Noah: I can’t believe it. Poor abby. I mean, is there anything I can do to help her?

Tessa: I mean, I understand the impulse to help, but abby is certain that chance is coming back to her. So until more information comes to light, I mean, there’s not really anything we can do. And please don’t tell anyone about this, even your family. I mean, unless they bring it up first.

Noah: I got it. Wait, who else in my family knows, though?

Tessa: I know your grandfather’s trying to help, but I’m not sure how amongst anyone else knows what’s going on.

Noah: I’ll keep it to myself then.

Tessa: Thank you. I mean, we’re trying to help abby, but, you know, she asked for space. I think she thinks that it’ll help her keep a clear head.

Noah: Yeah. No, I get that. Being surrounded by people, no matter how supportive, it — it can still feel like a distraction.

Tessa: I think for abby, she feels as if she accepts the sympathy, that it’s gonna make it worse for her.

Noah: Yeah, it’s a newman trait. We don’t want to accept help from anybody until it’s forced upon us, usually by another newman. She wouldn’t want to face the fear and sadness in everyone’s eyes.

Tessa: Of course. She’s worried. I mean, who wouldn’t be?

Noah: I’m assuming, because of the baby, it must be especially hard for mariah, and not to mention, for you.

Abby: There’s so many doors and windows, fire escapes, so many different ways that chance could’ve made it out, and that’s if he was in the building.

Victor: Sweetheart, you make a very good point. Has nina been contacted?

Abby: [ Sighs ] Christine was gonna tell her. I mean, I wanted to, but christine insisted. I guess she’s, um, waiting for confirmation. There’s no need to put chance’s mother through what we’ve all been going through, especially when I know that chance is still alive.

Victor: No, I think nina ought to be informed of what’s going on. I mean, you wouldn’t want to wait here and be kept in the dark about what’s gone on.

Abby: No, you’re right.

Victor: So then, why don’t i call her?

Abby: I’ll call christine and tell her that she needs to let nina know.

Victor: Okay.

Abby: She’ll want to be the one to break the news to her best friend. Dad, we need to stay positive. We can’t give up. Chance wouldn’t want us to.

Victor: I agree with you. Okay? Come here.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

Victor: You just remember, i will always be there for you, okay?

Abby: Thank you, daddy.

Victor: Okay.

Think wearing less makeup

means no need for a wipe?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Devon: So you’re going to testify against your grandfather, huh?

Amanda: You sound worried.

Devon: You already know that I’m worried. I don’t need to tell you again why. I just believe that michael can win this case without putting you on the stand.

Amanda: I agree. Michael is a good lawyer. I know that he can make his case without my involvement, but i have to do this, devon. Sutton killed my father, okay? So I can’t shy away from this. I need to look across that courtroom and tell him to his face that I know what he did.

Devon: And I’m sure you’ve thought about this, obviously, a lot, so I support you, 100%. I have your back.

Amanda: Do you ever get tired of being the nicest guy on the planet?

Devon: [ Chuckles ] I mean, you should know that’s a front.

[ Both laugh ]

Amanda: Oh, really? Okay, well, then if that’s true, then I guess I am a horrible judge of character.

Devon: No. I mean [Chuckles] I’m no saint at all. I’m angry at someone right now, and I know that it’s not justified.

Amanda: Who?

Devon: Chance. He’s put abby through hell. And I know it’s not fair of me to say that, and I hope and pray that he is safe and he comes home, but if he does, I’m certainly gonna let him know how I feel.

Amanda: Well, I really hope you get that opportunity.

Devon: Yeah, I hope so, too.

Amanda: You’re a really good man, devon hamilton.

Devon: I try to be.

Amanda: I can tell that you’re still worried. So why don’t you go? Okay? Go and make sure that abby and the baby are okay.

Victor: Don’t you cry. Everything will be alright. Okay. Yes. Yes.

Abby: [ Gasps ]

Victor: It’ll be alright.

Abby: [ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sniffles ]

Victor: Oh, sweetheart, don’t you cry.

Abby: I shouldn’t be around the baby like this.

Mariah: Abby? A-abby? Why was abby running out like that?

Victor: She’s just very upset right now.

Mariah: Is there any news about chance?

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ] I don’t have time to explain, okay? Would you take the baby while i run after her?

Mariah: Yeah, of course.

Victor: Thank you so much. Appreciate it. There we go. There we go. There we go. Okay, thank you.

Mariah: Of course.

Nick: [ Sighs ] I think we’re being honest with each other. You know, we’re not fooling ourselves. Yes, we have issues. But I’m trying like hell to see things from your vantage point.

Phyllis: Yeah, I know you are. I appreciate that. I want you to know I’m checking myself. I’m not trying to self-sabotage. You know, I’m not trying to destroy this relationship. I want us to work.

Nick: Well, I think it says a lot that we’re, you know, trying to figure out where we are and how we got here. ‘Cause, despite our differences, you know, we mesh. It’s a push-pull relationship, and right now, we’re focusing more on the push than the pull, and the pull is that we love each other.

Phyllis: I’m looking at the big picture, you know? Usually, I can outweigh the good with the bad, but lately…

Nick: I think the one thing that truly matters is that we love each other and that we’re happy.

Phyllis: Are you happy? I mean, truly happy?

Nick: I mean, the fact that you’re even asking me that implies that you’re not. Are you?

Phyllis: I’m not happy. It hurts to say that. I’m not happy right now. Right now I’m not happy. And I think if you were honest with yourself, you’d say the same thing. I brought in ensure max protein, with thirty grams of protein.

Nick: Don’t put words in my mouth, okay? I truly respect your feelings. I want you to respect mine, and don’t make me feel like I’m not being honest.

Phyllis: I wasn’t saying that. I wasn’t saying that you aren’t being honest with me or yourself.

Nick: Well, that’s the way it sounded, and if that’s not the case, then you make it sound like I’m not smart enough to understand what I’m truly feeling.

Phyllis: No, I didn’T. That’s not what I’m saying at all.

Nick: [ Sighs ] We’re in a rough patch right now. There’s been miscommunications and mistakes made, but the only thing that matters is us. What we have is amazing, alright? We are a lot more than video games and hot sex.

Phyllis: Of course we are.

Nick: Well, some people say that what we have is easy and comfortable, and I disagree with that.

Phyllis: Well, who said that?

Nick: [ Sighs ] You know what? It doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter.

Phyllis: Yes, it does. Have you been talking about our relationship with somebody?

Nick: Who cares what other people think, alright? What we need to do is focus on us and making this work. Can we do that?

Phyllis: Yes, yes. But you’re the one who brought it up. You said that somebody said that we’re hot sex and video games. I’ve never heard anybody say that at all, by the way.

Nick: Forget I mentioned it.

Phyllis: No, I’m not gonna forget that you mentioned it. Who — who are you going to for advice about our relationship?

Nick: Look, I don’t need other people’s opinions. They’re not helping. Especially when they’re coming from someone like jack who’s off waiting in the wings for you.

[ Door opens ]

Mariah: Hello?

Devon: Hey.

Mariah: Hey.

Devon: Hey, what’s going on?

Mariah: Oh. Abby ran out of here and victor chased after her. They left me in charge of the baby.

Devon: Why did abby leave?

Mariah: I don’t know, but she seemed very emotional. Did you come to check on her?

Devon: Yeah, yeah, I did. Just wish there was something i could do.

Mariah: Me, too. I went to work for a little bit. I put out a small fire there, but then I felt compelled to come back here.

Devon: I think until we know something concrete about chance, we just have to hope for the best and prepare for —

Mariah: I know what we have to prepare for.

Devon: Yeah, I know you do. I’m just saying it ’cause it’s gonna take all of our support to help get abby through this.

Mariah: Yeah. We need to be here for abby as much as we possibly can. And for this precious little guy right here.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Chance. I’m gonna hold on to those promises you made the day that you proposed. And that is how I know that you can’t be gone. You would never break your word.

[ Sniffles ]

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Breathes shakily ]

[ Sniffles ]

Victor: Hi, sweetheart. Come here.

Abby: I’m sorry.

Victor: Nothing to be sorry for, okay?

Abby: I’m sitting here in the park talking to myself, blubbering like a fool. It’s not my proudest moment.

Victor: It’s okay, okay? You’re feeling very emotional right now. It’s alright to feel that way. It’s alright to let it all out, okay?

Abby: I can’t do it in front of dominic. I mean, he’s so sensitive to my emotional state. That’s why I just — I had to leave.

[ Sighs ]

Victor: All I can tell you is that he will be alright. He’s a strong boy. He’ll be alright.

Abby: Dad, I know that chance is alive. I can feel it in my heart. So I don’t know why I’m falling apart like this, why I am such a mess.

Victor: You’re very upset right now, rightfully so. To live with that uncertainty about what happened to your loved one, I mean, that’s very understandable, alright? You just know that I’ll always be here for you. You can always lean on me. You can always come to me, okay? Come here.

Devon: Hey, mariah, you know that if you need to go to work and take care of things, I can stay here with dominic.

Mariah: No, I wouldn’t be able to focus on anything at work anyways, and I feel like i need to be here, you know, in case something happens. Kind of feels like a part of the pact we made when I first became the surrogate, you know? Have each other’s backs.

Devon: Yeah, I know. I know. So do I. And if bad news is on its way, i want to be here for abby.

Mariah: Yeah, me, too.

[ Knock on door ] Abby?

Devon: I don’t think she’d knock. Hey.

Christine: Hey. Is abby home?

Devon: No, she took off. Do you have any news? Frequent heartburn? Not anymore.

Phyllis: Wait a second. Our issues have nothing to do with jack. Nothing. Jack is just a friend to me.

Nick: This isn’t about friendship. I mean, he declared that he’s still in love with you to both of us.

Phyllis: Oh, who cares? Who cares? He was just being honest. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t want the best for us.

Nick: It also doesn’t mean that you need to go running off to jack every time you got a problem.

Phyllis: Oh, my god, that’s not what I’m doing. I just go to jack for he– jack has been a friend, and he has helped me.

Nick: Right. Because he knows you so much better than I do.

Phyllis: Okay, you know what? You know what? We’re getting off topic here. This conversation is supposed to be about us.

Nick: Yeah. That’s what we’re doing, right?

Phyllis: Yeah, but all of a sudden, we’re talking about jack or somebody else that is whispering in your ear about our relationship. That is doing more harm than good. This is about us and nobody else.

Nick: Okay. Well, I need to know, are we together in this or not?

Abby: Thank you for everything.

Victor: You just remember, you’re strong enough to handle this on your own. And if you ever need anyone, you call me, and I’ll be right here, okay? Remember, you have a lot of people who love you. In fact, I see two of them right there.

Abby: [ Chuckles ] Hey, guys.

Devon: Hey.

Abby: Hi, christine.

Christine: Hi, abby.

Abby: Look, I don’t want to be coddled, so, um, just tell me. Why are you here?

Christine: This was delivered to the agency’s field office today. I…I requested that I be the one to bring it to you. It was found at the site of the explosion.

[ Sighs ] Is this chance’s wedding ring?

Victor: Christine, um, that doesn’t mean that that is his ring. He wouldn’t wear that while doing undercover work.

Christine: I thought that, too, victor, but it turns out he left it on. He adapted it as part of his cover story as a married businessman. Evidently, chance didn’t ever want to take off his ring.

Abby: [ Sniffles ]

Christine: Is this chance’s?

Abby: [ Sighs ] It can’t be.

[ Exhales sharply ]

[ Sniffles ]

[ Sighs ]

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Jack: I feel for nicholas these days. Clearly under a lot of pressure. He’s not getting along with victoria or adam or victor.

Nikki: Or phyllis, apparently. How much do you know about the tension between them?

Nina: [ Gasps ] Until this very moment, it didn’t seem real.

[ Sobbing ]

Billy: What the hell?

Gaines: I had nowhere else to go. I’m not safe. Can you hide me?

Transcript provided by Suzanne


oh, hey. Hey. Welcome back. Thank you.

[ Sighs ] Still no sign of peter? No. I mean, I-I just was — I was just talking with the agents on the ground in crete, and there’s still nothing — not yet, anyway. Yeah. Well, as much as I wish that you had peter in custody or… in another freezer… oh. …I’m really just glad you’re okay. I wish we all were.

[ Monitor beeping ] Well, I gotta say — you’re doing remarkably well for a man with a gunshot wound who was basically shipped halfway around the world. How are you feeling? Like I could wrestle a bear. For that, you’d need a note from a doctor. Dr. Gatlin-holt.Something I can do for you? Uh, sure. But right now your tact and discretion are gift enough. But you don’t need to worry. I’m not here in a medical capacity. I have business with the patient. Come

on, charlotte! Eat yourcereal so we can get going. I can’T. Papa doesn’t allow me to eat sugary cereals. Just this once won’t kill you. Now, hurry up so we can go to the hospital and see your dad.

[ Cellphone rings ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] Lucy, hi. This isn’t really such a great time. Yeah, I had gladys working on that. I told her I’d finish it, but, um, I forgot. No, I have no idea where she keeps that calendar. Well, have you tried calling her phone? Oh. Of course she’s not answering. Unfortunately, I think I know exactly where to find her. Sasha: Mmm! That smells so good. It has real caffeine in it, doesn’t it? Mm-hmm! You miss it, don’t you? So much! I don’t dream of fitting back in my clothes or of riding a roller coaster. I dream of morning coffee! A double-shot latte with extra foam. Hi! Hi. Sorry I’m late. No worries. Yeah, no, I enjoy the extra time with sasha. Yeah? Enjoy it while you can. You won’t have a free minute once the baby’s born.

[ Exhales deeply ] Excuse me. What kind of spa doesn’t have alcohol? I need a bottle of dom. And, um, are strawberries in season? Wait. Never mind. If they’re covered with chocolate, doesn’t matter. I’ll take half a dozen. Mom? Hey. Uh, what are you doing here? Oh, the works — eyebrow threading, mani/pedi, and some kind of treatment with gold leaf the spa claims is gonna take 10 years off of me.

[ Laughs ] Okay. Well, I mean, like, w-why are you taking a spa day? Aren’t you supposed to be at work? Maxie: That’s what

i would like to know. Thank you. Spencer… could you top off my coffee one more time? Ava, you’ve already had four cups. A fifth one might kill you.

[ Clicks tongue ] Coming right up. Is that any way to talk to a customer? Father, perhaps you could spare your wife by taking her somewhere more suitable. Hm. Such as? Somewhere else.

[ Chuckles ] Spencer, you seem to have forgotten you have no moral high ground here. You stalked ava for months. You terrorized her, me, and avery. I know what I did. And I won’t allow you to be rude to ava on top of all of that. That’s rich. The man who let me think he was dead for three years is lecturing me on my tone. I am still your father. Yeah, that can’t be helped. Hey, next time you climb on your high horse, just remember — you’re no innocent yourself. Hey, uh, I didn’t order any pizza.Jake from state farm… after you saved me so much dough on insurance with that “parker promo” I devised a promo for you. Here’s the deal parker, state farm offers everyone surprisingly great rates. Yeh, right. Pepperoni pocketz, atomic brownie, cuckoo crustiez… there’s no promo. Just great rates. And a side of ranch. You’re the man, man. When you want the real deal…like a good neighbor, state farm is there. We’re here for the heavy flow-ers and the wedgie-pickers with a pad made like no other up to zero leaks because it locks blood in up to zero bunching because it flexes no worries just always flexfoam

(eerie music) every halloween, millions of reese’s cups just…disappear. Don’t worry. They’re in a better place now. (Chuckles mischievously) much better place.

[ Sighs heavily ] I gave bailey a kiss goodbye from both of us, I told her I’d tell papa she loves him, and I made sure the nanny has bailey’s the top three favorite toys in case she won’t stop fussing. So we can go now? Thank you, charlotte. You’re so good with bailey. Of course I am. She’s my sister. Mm-hmm. Okay, then. Off we go. Charlotte: Are you sure we shouldn’t bring bailey with us to see papa? The nanny can get her ready in ten minutes, five if I help. You know what? I-I wish we could. I think it’s gonna be too much commotion for your dad. I suppose you’re right. Besides, she might be scared by all the machines. Sweetie, are you nervous about today? ‘Cause your papa’s gonna be fine. And I know he’s so looking forward to seeing you. You’re really brave, charlotte. And I hope you know you don’t only have valentin. You have me, too. I know. Okay, so, bailey is with the nanny — check. Spoonful of sugar — check. Are we forgetting anything? Yuri. That is one giant oversight. Let’s get yuri, and let’s go see your dad. I have the day off. Is brook lynn aware you’re not at your desk?

[ Chuckles ] It was brook lynn who gave me the day off. Right. And I suppose brook lynn also told you you could use her corporate card? That is mine to use. This is a corporate credit card. I am part-owner of the corporation. This is not for frivolous spa treatments or strawberries and champagne. Brook lynn said it was okay. I’m sure this is a misunderstanding. Gladys, what did brook lynn say exactly? Brook lynn was clear. She told me to enjoy my well-deserved reward day for all the hard work I’ve done.

[ Laughs ] Hard work? Oh, are you talking about the bare minimum we practically have to beg you to do? Brando: Okay, ma, I think it’s best if we, uh, postpone your spa day, maybe reward yourself this weekend. Mnh-mnh. I’m gonna do what I was promised. I’m gonna do it today, and I’m gonna pay for it with that card, like I was promised. You’ve been preoccupied all morning. Is there anything you want to discuss? What’s to discuss? I mean, just by getting this job, my kid is still nowhere close to doing what’s right. And your aunt alexis? What about alexis? Well, y-you — you said before that her pardon may not work out. That’s got to be weighing on you. You’re right — I do have a lot of family business on my mind. “Family business”? You want to elaborate? Ah, there’s just been some trouble on some real estate the cassadines used to own in greece.

[ Breathes deeply ] I need to make some inquiries. Uh-huh. So how does this affect you if the cassadines no longer own the property? Maybe it doesn’T. But I’d like to head to G.H. To find out for sure. Valentin was shot on the property. I heard, um… peter shot valentin. Yeah, he did. You know, when I heard that, all I could think about was those two little girls, you know, valentin’s kids. Because of peter, they could’ve lost their father. It never should have come to this. Oh, I know where you’re going with this. I wish I would’ve killed him. I — no, you don’T. Now… I do. Mnh. That’s the thing, anna. I do. Because if peter would have died, this would’ve been over right there and then, right? And none of us would have to worry about peter going on this rampage. At what cost to you, though? You talking about my conscience? Hm, I think I would have slept just fine knowing peter was in the ground. You would’ve spent the rest of your life looking over your shoulder wondering when it was going to catch up with you. And if it had, what would’ve happened to violet? At least then I’d know that violet and everyone else was safe from peter. That day will come. I promise you, it will. Because he’s starting to get desperate. And along with desperation comes mistakes. So he will get caught. And when he does, it’ll be interesting to see if he tells the authorities about the whole stairwell freezer incident. Well, if he does, they’ll probably throw you a parade. You know? I know how much you love crowds and attention. I do love a good parade.

[ Chuckles ] But seriously… when you’re out there, you’re looking out for the world — who’s looking out for you? I haven’t forgotten our agreement, dr. Gatlin-holt — you win your suit against the quartermaines and support my bid to stay ceo of elq. And I pay you off in any way you see fit. Valentin, I’m only here to tell you that you’re gonna have to hold onto your job on your own. I’ve agreed to stop pursuing my claim against elq. Why on earth would you do that? The mother of your daughter. Brook lynn? What has she done now? She manipulated me into making a hipaa violation, and then she made me an offer — I could give up my rights as jimmy lee’s son or I could give up my medical license. I’m sorry to hear that. I’m sure that you are. Brook lynn can be a tenacious little minx when it comes to her family. She sure is.

[ Monitor beeping ] Valentin, I recognize that, as bailey’s father, that you don’t have a choice. But i do. I don’t want anything to do with the quartermaines. I’m out. Brook lynn: Works for me.

-Bonjour, ma petite!

-Bonjour, papa!

[ Groaning lightly ] It’s suddenly really crowded in here. I think I’ll split. Don’t let the door hit you when you’re leaving. Papa, you gonna be okay? Don’t worry about me. I’m tougher than I look. You’d have to be. You look terrible.

[ Chuckles ] You should see the other guy. What is this life? Number six or seven? At least eight.

[ Laughs ] Well, I’ve got some deception business to attend to, and you guys have some father/daughter time to make up for, so get on that.

[ Monitor beeping ] I’m gonna go make some calls. You stay here with charlotte. She is your number-one job.

[ Yuri speaks russian ] Austin: So, I still haven’t gotten the official word from the board to get back to work, so if you could just prod that along? Not now! Oh, yeah. I mean, take your time. I mean, it’s just my future and my career and the lives of my patients, so…no worries. You’re an assistant, gladys. Nobody owes you a spa day or anything else aside from your weekly salary, provided that you actually earn it. And I am confiscating this until further notice. I don’t think you want to do that. Ma, stop! You can’t talk to your boss that way.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh. That’s brook lynn. Oh, good. You can ask her yourself. I have to meet her at G.H. Valentin’s in the icu.

[ Gasps ] The icu? That poor, wonderful man. We can reschedule. Okay. -Go. -And as for you… I expected you back at your desk 10 minutes ago. Before you say anything, I was telling the truth. We will get to the bottom of this. In the meantime, gladys, you need to remember that you report to brook lynn. How can I forget? And brook lynn reports to maxie. Okay. Maxie was just lording that over me. You don’t need to repeat it. Well, if they’re constantly reminding you who’s your boss, maybe you need to hear it! Well, I’m sick of it. Nobody talks down to me, least of all some fraud who’s barking out orders at me when she should be getting a paternity test! Hey, ma! You apologize to her right now! Brando is this baby’s father.

[ Sighs ] Without question. And I do not need a test to prove it. Yes. Got it? Yes. Of course. I didn’t mean that. I’m sorry. I’m overwhelmed. Which is why I need a spa day! This manhunt for peter has just been exhausting. Mentally and physically. Just… and — and the sheer carnage that he has left in his wake. And now there’s two little girls with their father in the icu. I took the liberty of looking at valentin’s chart. The exploratory surgery he’s having tomorrow isn’t without risk, but given his age and condition, um… yeah. …I hate to say it, but I think he’s gonna make it. Ohh. [ Chuckles ] Thanks for that. Mm. I’m really happy that, you know… we still want what’s best for each other. Mm-hmm. As far as peter’s concerned… …your peace of mind is more important than having him in custody. His death on your conscience? I would never have wanted that for you. Never. Or elizabeth. Valentin was shot? In greece? Well, I hope he was sent out a window and belly-flopped into the aegean. But you’re not one to hold a grudge.

[ Chuckles ] Come on. Just let me enjoy this. So who shot him? And why the hell would you care? I’ll explain to you on the way to the lodge. Oh, no. You’ll explain to me on the way to G.H. I’m going with you. Spencer: [ Sighs ] Why do they call it “serving” when you spend most of the time cleaning up? You’ll get the hang of it, maybe come to enjoy the work. Well, I’ll have to take your word on that. So what brings you back so soon? Did you leave something when you were here earlier? No. I came back to see you.

So, um, anna’s not gonna say anything about what we did to peter? No. I think she has our back. Oh. Okay. I should thank her. I guess I should cut her a little slack. I know she’s doing everything she can to catch peter, but I can’t help but think… how many people will he destroy before he gets stopped? Hey. Peter will never harm you or your family again. I’ll make sure of it. How? I just will. Sounds like a plan.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Thank you. Speaking of families… yes? I’m feeling kind of terrible for prying into yours. How are things at the quartermaines’ without me? Are you helping brook lynn with your baby sister? I changed her diaper. Twice. What?! Look at you!

[ Chuckles ] I’m so proud of you. I know it’s been an adjustment, having a sister all of a sudden. I want you to know how much I appreciate you making the effort. I enjoy taking care of my sister. It happens a lot when brook lynn’s friend comes to visit. Who? Maxie? No. Detective chase. They’re constantly playing games and watching movies together. Well, they’re friends. If you say so.

[ Chuckles ] Listen. I care very much about brook lynn… because she’s bailey’s mother.

[ Monitor beeping ] But I’m glad she has friends. Do you have friends?

[ Breathes deeply ] I get you, anna devane, right down to your socks. I’m not wearing any socks.

[ Exhales deeply ] It’s a good start. I have you and bailey, and that makes me the luckiest man in the world. Ooh. Um… I’m looking for a room. Who’s your friend? Valentin cassadine. No, I meant this guy. Hey, buddy. Ahh! I am terribly sorry, but only family are allowed to visit mr. Cassadine. Oh. I am family.

[ Chuckles ] Gladys corbin. And I come bearing gifts.

[ Whispering ] And intel.

[ Whispering ] Oh. Intel. This intel wouldn’t have anything to do with the quartermaines, would it? Oh, does it ever. You don’t say. Well, it is a crying shame that hospital policy prevents me from telling you that valentin is in icu 1. Well. Thanks for nothin’. Pawwws-itively my pleasure. Huh? “Paw.” Pawwws-it– damn. Thought that was gold. Maxie: What was gold? When I was here earlier, you made a crack about how your dad used to do anything for you. First of all, he’s my father, not my dad. Second of all, those days are long gone. My father has washed his hands of me. Oh, it may feel that way, but I’m sure that that’s not true.

[ Scoffs ] Care to put money on that? I could use it. I would. And I would win.

[ Scoffs ] You think that this is one of those “tough love” sorts of things. It’s not. I think the connection between you and your father is — you know, runs deeper than either of you two realize. I think the both of you are incredibly stubborn. Yeah. Can’t disagree with you on the “stubborn” part. And I think behind the stubbornness… you both are longing to reconnect. Longing? And I think that if there’s anyone in the world nikolas cassadine would come clean to… it’s his son. Come clean about what? Oh, nikolas! Hi. I actually wanted to talk to you. Hello, ava. Hi. What can I do for you, anna? You’ve saved me a trip to spoon island. I wanted to ask you a question about a cassadine property in crete. Any property in crete was sold years ago. I can provide you more information, but right now I’m here to see valentin. Really? That’s odd. I mean, it wasn’t so long ago that the pair of you nearly came to blows at the metro court, not to mention how he blasted you out the window and into the sea and sent you into hiding for three years. Well, recent events in my life have taught me to rely on my better angels.

[ Breathes sharply ] Can you tell me where I can find valentin? Icu. Visitation’s limited, though. Okay. Well, we’ll — we’ll come back another time. Okay. Uh, please let him know we were here. I’d be happy to. Actually, while I’m being messenger… is there anything that you’d like to say to your uncle victor? What about him? Oh, I thought you would have heard. Victor is alive.

So, have you seen scout? Yeah, she and danny were over while their mother was on a trip. Is she still interested in ballet? She is. I gave her a lesson on saturday. Yuri: Hey. No visitor! Oh! Oh, but I’m a friend. Ms. Corbin? Oh, now, now. Gladys. I told you. I’m a friend. Let me inside. Charlotte is visiting with her father. Papa. Who is this person? Well, aren’t you a delight? Pretty. I bet she knows it. Charlotte, this is ms. Corbin. Ms. Corbin, this is my daughter charlotte. Now that we’ve been introduced, can you let me in? Charlotte, will you do me a favor and take yuri down to the cafeteria? The cafeteria? Yeah, I think he could probably go for a cocoa or something.

[ Monitor beeping ] Come on, yuri. Gonna introduce you to the cafeteria. Oh, my god, valentin. It’s even worse than I thought. Don’t you worry. Your gladys is here now. I cannot believe my mother. I mean, I thought she dropped the whole paternity thing months ago. I — I am so sorry. Okay, first of all, it’s not your fault. Second… I am not excusing gladys, but she is dealing with a lot. In the past few months, her living situation and her employment status changed. Both for the better. And she got shot. Yeah, which is bad. Okay. But, I-I mean, she’s wearing it around like a badge of honor. And on top of everything, the first man that she showed interest in who also seemed interested in her literally got blown up on their first date.

[ Sighs ] Yeah, I got nothin’. Your mother may be, uh… all of the things that she is, but she has been through it.

[ Sighs ] Even so, I mean, she still has to respect you. I mean, not only as the mother of her grandchild, but as her boss. I wouldn’t blame you one bit if you fired her. You had to be there. I cracked an underappreciated pun.

[ Chuckling ] Oh. Okay. Well, I’m glad your sense of humor is back. Does that mean you’re okay with everything? I’ll never be okay with giving up my birthright. But in a weird way, I’m kind of grateful for brook lynn trying to ruin my career because it reminded me how much I enjoy being a doctor. Okay. I know what brook lynn did was wrong, but I doubt she would have gone through with it. Pretty sure she would have. Maxie, there’s this thing that I’m trying to figure out, that I don’t understand. You were engaged to an extremely bad dude, and you’re besties with a morally bankrupt woman. Am I the only one who thinks you deserve better?

[ Sighs ] Oh! Charlotte. Hi. I thought you’d still be with your father. He got another visitor. We’re on our way to get cocoa. Oh. That sounds great. I’d love to join you, but, um, I need to go find maxie.

[ Elevator bell dings ]

[ Button clicks ] And ruin her day. Violet found that picture of you and your father. She was bound to have questions. She is a very curious little girl, especially where her family’s concerned.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, it’s understandable, all things considered. Even so… I should never have pushed you on the subject, comparing your relationship with your father and my struggles with gregory. I shouldn’t have done that. Every family’s different. I simply don’t have a close relationship with my dad. Hayden never knew him. And I’m sorry that he’s not an active grandparent to my boys or to violet, but… that’s just who he is. My great-uncle is alive? Alive, well, and in custody. Oh. Yeah, he’s been colluding with peter. And actually they were holed up in a compound in crete that you claim is no longer part of the family’s ownership. To the best of my knowledge, it isn’T. I-I can contact my lawyers. Could you? Oh, I-I-I would really appreciate that. Has victor said anything I should know about? Not much. So far. I mean, he’s intimated that there are secrets to share, but he’s angling for a deal, obviously. Yeah, that sounds like my unscrupulous uncle. What do you think’s gonna happen to him? Difficult to say. Victor didn’t survive and lay low for six years without someone’s help. Maybe it was peter. Maybe someone else. Anyway. I’ll be in touch. Nikolas. Tell me, my love… what is it you’re hiding? I know you know I went to, uh, prison for shooting your former stepmother, hayden barnes. But did you know I was falsely accused? Really? Really. Huh. Well, you’re out now, so I guess that means they must have found who shot hayden. The authorities didn’T. I did. And I need your help to bring that person to justice.

[ Chuckles ] Me? What can I… mr. Butler… what does any of this have to do with my father? Everything. Nikolas is responsible for hayden’s shooting.

Whatever do you mean, darling? It’s clear that you know more about your uncle victor than you’re letting on. If I could see that, then so could anna. So I — I must ask. Whatever this is, is it gonna come back to bite us? Nah, if victor had given me up, I’d be in custody undergoing f-formal questioning right now. If victor had given you up? For what?!

[ Sighs ] When valentin shot me and he almost killed me… yes, I remember very well. I was there. …Victor found me and he nursed me back to health. Why did he want in return, then, for saving your life? We struck a deal. I kept his anonymity. He kept mine. And I promised once I reclaimed the cassadine estate from valentin… that I would give him a home base and I would continue to keep his secret. And what does this have to do with peter? How deep are you in with him? I had no clue that victor was up to anything with peter. And can you trust that your uncle will keep you out of it? I think so. Yeah, my — my uncle’s an opportunist. He needs me where I am. Unless he’s found a way to leverage you for his own freedom. Because you know as well as I do… betrayal comes most often from those closest to us. When you say that my father was responsible for hayden’s shooting, what do you mean? Are you saying that he shot her? No. No. We believe he hired someone to do the job for him.

I can’t wait to see the look on your face

I can’t wait to see… who is “we”? Look. What matters is that nikolas is the one who hurt hayden, not me. If what you’re saying is true, then my father let you serve six years for something that he… what proof do you have? Right now? None. That’s where you come in.

[ Chuckles ] No. No, no, no. I want no part of this. Well, just ask him about hayden. That’s all. Why should I? For violet. Who? Hayden’s daughter. That little girl is without a mother, just like you. I mean, at the very least, don’t you want to know if hayden is staying away because of something your father did to her? I seriously doubt that my father is going to confess anything to me. Then he doesn’T. Okay, but what if he does? What am I supposed to do then? Turn him over to the police? No. You tell me…

i tell the police. I don’t want him to go to prison. Aren’t you facing prison right now? Nikolas is holding your feet to the fire for stalking ava while nikolas arranged for someone to kill hayden! Who committed the greater crime? I’m sorry, sir. I need to get back to work. Spencer. Follow your instincts. Do the right thing. Gladys was never gonna be a perfect fit at deception. I appreciate you hiring her. It gave her a sense of purpose. Don’t forget I also wanted her to earn an income so that she could move out.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. That, too. And look how she repaid you — insulting everybody, helping herself to the corporate card. Gladys honestly thought that she had brook lynn’s blessing somehow. How? I mean, I don’t know brook lynn that well, but, I mean, she doesn’t seem like the type that’s gonna treat my mother to a spa day. She isn’T. Which is why I need to get to the bottom of this. Or you could just fire her. I mean, obviously, it’s not working out. Let me talk to maxie and brook lynn and figure out what’s going on. As for gladys, she still has a job. For now. That charmaine of yours is a real beauty. Charlotte.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, right. Like the web. Like the web. Oh. Both of my daughters are rare beauties. I’m sure. And, um, where is that precious bundle of brook lynn’s? At home. Yeah. Why — why are you here? Well, you were so good to me. And I — I want to return the favor. You know, I took a bullet recently, too, you know? I heard. You seem to have made a remarkable recovery.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. And it’s not all bad. I’m a weather vane now, meaning I can tell when a storm is coming. Well, that must be useful. Hm! It is. Well, thank you for the visit and thank you for the, uh, gift. Yeah. Oh, remember — that is for you, not the rugrats. No matter how beautiful they are. I will.

[ Giggles, sighs ] I don’t want to be rude, but I really should rest now. Of course. You poor thing. You must be exhausted.

[ Breathes deeply ] So…did you know I work for brook lynn? I know brook lynn is not your favorite person right now, and I can sympathize. There was a time when she and I hated each other. What changed? ‘Cause she’s still superficial and caustic and entitled and opportunistic. All I can say is she and I have been through a lot together, and I can’t just forget the good things. Well, I can’t forget the promise that I made to my father.

[ Groans ] Have you at least been reinstated? I got an informal notice that brook lynn has issued a retraction, but I’m still waiting for them to make it official so that I can see my patients again. Okay. Well, that’s good. That means this whole thing is effectively over.

[ Chuckles ] No. It’s just not over.

[ Sighs ] Not by a long shot.

S a difficult subject,and I’m only asking for violet. She wants to see the picture again. She’s asked a couple times where the photo of her grandpa jeff is, and I looked, but I — I couldn’t find it. Do you maybe know what happened to it? I have no idea. I have an idea or two about how to reach gladys. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, hey. Are you — are you sure? I mean, ’cause my mother — you know how she is. The more someone tries to manage her, the more she doubles down on causing trouble. Brando, I’ve got this. You can leave gladys to me. I’ve been calling you and texting you since last night! Why haven’t you gotten back to me?! Something is wrong with my phone. I wasn’t receiving any texts or phone calls, and they suddenly just came in a few minutes ago. Okay. What is going on? We need to talk. You know, before you two have this little tte–tte, mrs. Quartermaine, I have done everything that you have asked me to do, and yet somehow, miraculously, I have not been officially cleared to see my patients. That sounds like a “you” problem. But the problem is for my patients because I don’t get to see them. I did my part. I’m sorry if the administrative wheels of this hospital grind slowly. Now, I am sorry, but I have bigger fish to fry. Like valentin?

[ Sighs ] Like my assistant. Something has to be done about gladys. Oh, I caught her using your corporate card and I had to order her to go back to work. Are you two talking about gladys corbin? How do you know gladys? Oh, well, I don’t know her well. I mean, we just met. But she was looking for valentin. Yeah, I’m brook lynn’s assistant, but I’m treated much more like an indentured servant. I mean, I don’t understand how a classy guy like you got mixed up with a bossy bridge-and-tunnel princess like that. Gladys, why are you here? I mean, you were so understanding the few times we kept each other company. You listened. You accepted me for who I am. And do you know what that is? A force of nature?

[ Chuckles ] Not what I was gonna say, but I like that even better. Now, let me tell you, val. It’s okay to call you “val,” right?

[ Brea thes sharply ] If knowledge is power… then anyone who crosses me better take cover. Ava: Oh, anna! Oh. Hi. I thought you two had left. Yeah. I-I’m on my way out. I, um — I just wanted to reiterate to you that if you need anything from me or from nikolas, just let us know, okay? Peter’s reign of terror has to end. Oh, yeah. I couldn’t agree more. It was nice to see you with nikolas, together. I’m so glad that whole stalker nightmare is over for you. Hm. [ Chuckles ] Spencer is facing the music, and nikolas and I are ready for our happily ever after. I certainly hope that’s the case.

[ Chuckling ] It sounds like — do you — do you have doubts or…? I-I just — I’m not sure if — if it’s even possible, a “happily ever after” with a cassadine. You picked up his tail? Great. I’m on my way.

[ Gate rattles, door closes ] Spencer. Aren’t you supposed to be finishing your shift at kelly’s? Something more important came up. Couldn’t wait. Okay. Let’s hear it. What have you done now?

[ Cellphone thumps lightly ] Oh, no, this isn’t about me, father. This is about you. What about me? Tell me about hayden.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Belle: Shawn? Hmm. Shawn, are you here? Hello? Who’s here?

Shawn: Boo!

Belle: Oh, my god!

Shawn: Not exactly the reaction I was hoping to get when I’m half naked. Oh, happy halloween.

Belle: Oh, my god. You are so gonna pay for that.

Shawn: Am I? How so, hmm?

Belle: Hmm, I’ll have to think of a few ways.

Shawn: Oh…

Belle: I thought we had to go have dinner with ciara and ben.

Shawn: We do. We do, and it sounds like she has some news for us.

Belle: Hmm.

[Melancholy music]

Ben: Hey, jordan. I often think about how good of a sister you really were to me when we were kids. Nowadays, I’m trying to have kids of my own. And I really just wanna make sure I can give them a better life than we ever had so they don’t end up the way that I did… or you did.

Ciara: Hey.

Ben: Hey.

Ciara: Are you okay?

Allie: So the devil’s at the dimera crypt?

Johnny: That was a more specific answer than I was expecting.

Allie: And you didn’t make that happen?

Johnny: No, no. Look, I mean, I’ll do it again. Spirits, is the devil at the dimera crypt?

[Eerie music]

Demon marlena: I thought it was fitting to bring you here as your last resting place. Marlena stopped me from killing you in the chapel, but now I’m back to finish what I started.

John: [Laughs] No, you can’T.

Demon marlena: I can, and I will. Come on, don’t be upset about this. You’ve had a good run. You may have vanquished me three decades ago, but I’m back now, and you are no match for me.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ciara: I got your text. So I knew you would be here.

Ben: Yeah.

Ciara: You could have asked me to come with you, you know.

Ben: Ciara, jordan terrorized you. I wouldn’t expect you to wanna come here and pay your respects.

Ciara: Ben, she was sick.

Ben: I was sick.

Ciara: Yes, but the difference is, you got help and you overcame your mental illness.

Ben: Thanks to dr. Evans, you, your love, and your belief. That’s the only reason why I’m here.

Ciara: Can I ask you a question? Did you really come here just to visit jordan? Or are you still afraid that our baby might end up like her?

Shawn: So I told ciara that we’ll meet up at the pub after you’re done visiting your parents. How are they doing, by the way?

Belle: Well, unfortunately, I only saw my mom. My dad has left town on some, I don’t know, mysterious mission.

Shawn: Yeah? Did she say how long? I mean, I know it’s hard on her when he’s away.

Belle: Yeah, no, she seemed okay. I think she’s taking kind of a devil-may-care attitude, actually.

Shawn: What does that mean?

Belle: Well, for starters, she was literally dressed as the devil. Mm-hmm. She had like the horns and the tail and the whole weird glowy contact thing.

Shawn: That’s sort of a pretty odd choice for halloween costume, you know, considering her history.

Belle: Yeah. That’s what I said, but she said it was cathartic for her to own her past.

Shawn: Mm-hmm, okay. Whatever. I mean, she’s the expert, so…

Belle: She also said that she was supporting johnny’s new movie project, “possessed: The marlena evans story.”

Shawn: Hold on. Wait a minute. Wait, so she’s–like she’s letting johnny make a movie about her possession?

Belle: Apparently.

Shawn: But how does your dad feel about that? I mean, he can’t feel okay. I mean, dredging up their history and that awful time in their life?

Belle: I don’t know. I mean, he can’t be happy about it, but she’s totally into it. I don’t know. Maybe she’s really happy to just exorcise those demons once and for all.

Allie: This game is stupid.

Johnny: It’s not a game. You saw what the board did.

Allie: You’re just trying to freak me out on halloween.

Johnny: I wouldn’t do that. Not about this.

Allie: Well, I don’t care what you say, okay? The ouija board’s fake.

Johnny: Only one way to find out. Let’s go to the crypt and look for the devil.

John: You’ll never get away with this. All my family will never stop looking for me.

Demon marlena: You underestimate me again, john. It’s a fatal flaw. I’ve gone to great lengths to make sure that you don’t trip me up this time. You know what? Your beloved tink is back in town. And she wanted to reunite with her father.

John: You saw–you saw izzy?

Demon marlena: Yes, I did. Marlena explained to her that you were on an extended business trip.

John: No.

Demon marlena: Yes. And soon marlena will be notified that there was a terrible mishap overseas, that her beloved husband, that john, died in some mysterious mission. Boo-hoo-hoo-hoo. Everybody will grieve. They’ll light candles and they’ll say prayers. And they’ll say, “oh no, no. Why did you take that wonderful, amazing, loving man?” They’ll have no idea that I was the one who ended your life while you’re all chained up like a dog.

John: [Gagging] As someone who resembles someone else,

Anna: She didn’T.

Tony: Anna.

Anna: Oh, tony. I didn’t hear you come in.

Tony: Oh, that’s because you were so engrossed in johnny’s script. Where did you get that?

Anna: Oh, I borrowed it from abigail. Tony, have you read this latest version? It’s incredible.

Tony: Well, I’m sure it is.

Anna: We really need to be involved in this movie.

Tony: I told you we can’t because ej wants johnny to work at dimera, not making movies.

Anna: I know, darling, but that’s old news. Ej is not only investing in this movie, he is playing the role of john black.

Tony: He is?

Anna: Yes. And if he can be in the movie, I think you should be too.

Tony: Me? As who?

Anna: As tony, of course.

Tony: You want me to play tony?

Anna: Who better to play tony than my tony?

Tony: Well, let’s not forget it wasn’t me. It was my cousin, andre, who usurped my life at that point.

Anna: Well, that just makes it a more challenging role to play, but I know you’d be brilliant. I’m calling johnny right now, and I’m going to throw your hat in the ring.

Tony: Oh no, no, no. You’ll do no such thing.

Allie: There is no way that I’m going with you to that crypt.

Johnny: Why? You’re scared you might come face to face with the devil?

Allie: No, because I have plans with tripp.

Johnny: Oh, convenient.

Allie: Why do you care if I go with you? What, you’re too scared to go alone?

Johnny: I’m not scared. I’m inspired. I mean, what better way to research my film than to come face to face with the devil himself? And I intend to get it all on camera.

Allie: You’re wasting your time.

Johnny: Why would the spirits tell us the devil’s at the crypt if he’s not?

Allie: There are no spirits, and there’s nothing in the crypt.

Johnny: Yeah. Well, we’ll see about that.

[Uneasy music]

John: Doc, I know you’re in there. I need your help. Come back, come back to me.

Demon marlena: Your precious doc tried fighting me yesterday. I’ll give her this, it was a valiant effort, but she fell short.

John: I know that you’re still in there. I know that you’re still fighting, so fight for me, doc. Fight for us. Fight for our love.

Ben: I can’t pretend that I am completely over my worries about having a kid. And, of course, I think about jordan and how she turned up. But mainly I have to just trust that your goodness is gonna shine through.

Ciara: Mm-hmm. Yes, and our baby will have what you and jordan never had, a house filled with so much love.

Ben: Yeah.

Ciara: Yeah.

Ben: You cold?

Ciara: No, I’m not cold. It’s just, this place is kind of creepy.

Ben: Yeah. I mean, we are in a cemetery on halloween night.

Ciara: Yeah, I noticed.

Ben: Yeah.

Ciara: Look, my brother and belle just got back from south africa after visiting claire. And they wanted to have dinner with us at the pub. But if you’re not feeling up to it–

Ben: No, no, no I–no. I’m I’m up for it. I’d like that. I wanna see ’em.

Ciara: Are you sure?

Ben: Yes. I think I’ve said all I needed to say to jordan right now. I feel a lot better.

Ciara: I’m glad. I order my groceries online now.

Ciara: It is so good to see you.

Belle: You too. You too. Come here, you.

Ben: Hey, hey, hey. Good to see you.

Belle: Thanks. You too. Sit.

Ciara: So where is that brother of mine?

Shawn: Hey, I’m late. Late as usual. I’m sorry, sorry. I was checking up on abe’s condition, sorry.

Ben: How is he doing?

Shawn: He’s doing a lot better.

Ben: Yeah. Good, good. Good. That’s great news.

Ciara: Yeah. We heard that jake was brought in for the shooting.

Shawn: Yeah.

Ciara: That is so weird. We were with gabi and jake right before it happened.

Shawn: You were?

Ciara: Yeah, we were supposed to have breakfast with them.

Shawn: Well, wait, wait, so was he acting strangely? Like did he say or did he do–did he seem agitated or, like, did he seem upset in any way?

Ben: Ciara was inside with gabi, and I was with jake right before he left.

Shawn: Okay. So did he say anything that would be relevant to this investigation?

Anna: You don’t want to be in johnny’s movie?

Tony: Have you forgotten that abigail is playing marlena?

Anna: So?

Tony: So marlena is my peer, and I’m abigail’s senior by decades.

Anna: So he’ll rewrite the character. How can you not be dying to play such a pivotal role?

Tony: Because I don’t think it’s that pivotal.

Anna: Are you kidding? Tony is a man at a crossroads in his life and in his marriage. He’s married to kristen, but he’s seething with jealousy because his wife is secretly attracted to another man: The sexy priest, father john black.

Tony: Oh.

John: [Croaking] Help me… doc, please, help me.

Demon marlena: There’s no one coming for you, john. I can feel the life force draining out of your body even now.

[Disquieting music]

Johnny: That’s weird. Always used to be a key in the lock.

Demon marlena: Let go, john! Let the sweet relief of eternity flow over you.

John: Never.

Johnny: Hey, lucifer, you in there?

[Creaking noise]

John: Help me, please.

Demon marlena: Dammit.

Johnny: If you’re in there, satan, my name’s johnny. I’m a filmmaker. Love to meet you. Okay. So much for the ouija board.

[Door clunks]

Grandma? Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Shawn: What did jake say to you outside, ben?

Ben: He told me that he had something to take care of, and then he took off.

Shawn: All right. Did you suspect that there was something wrong?

Ben: I’m telling you everything that he told me, brother.

Shawn: Okay. All right, all right. But if you think of anything else, you can let me know.

Ben: I will.

Ciara: Okay, wait, wait, wait, did you come here to give my husband the third degree or…

Shawn: Okay, okay, it’s my job.

Ciara: To enjoy some clam chowder and hear about our honeymoon?

Belle: Yes, ciara’s right. Let’s eat. And I wanna hear all about new orleans. Was it amazing? Tell me everything.

Ciara: Was amazing. The food, incredible. The music, the music was–

Shawn: Please tell me you went to all the places that mom and dad went to, and tell me that you went to oak alley.

Ciara: Oh, we did. It was beautiful. And it’s really moving to see how they’re confronting their history by teaching the visitors about it.

Shawn: Hmm. All right. I bet it is. So what else did you guys do?

Ben: The usual honeymoon stuff. Ciara and I helped the isa recover a stolen gemstone.

Belle: What?

Shawn: What the–

Ciara: Yeah, yeah, it’s a really long story, and I’ll be more than happy to tell you all about it later. But right now, we actually have some really special news to share.

Belle: Yay.

Shawn: Oh yeah?

Belle: Tell us, what is it?

Ciara: Well, as wonderful as the trip ended up being, it helped us come to a pretty big, life-changing decision about our future.

Shawn: And what is that?

Ciara: Well, we’re trying to have a baby.

Belle: Yay!

Johnny: Grandma, what are you– what are you doing here, and dressed like that?

Marlena: When I finished your script, I wanted you to know that I liked it.

Johnny: Thank you. But that still doesn’t explain what you’re doing here inside the dimera family crypt.

Marlena: When you weren’t at home, I thought I would just take a stroll.

Johnny: Hmm.

Marlena: And then I got here, and there was a key in the lock. So I thought I’d take a moment to pay my respects to your grandfather.

Johnny: Dressed like the… devil?

Marlena: It’s a halloween costume. I did it for you.

Johnny: Well, that’s cool, I think. So you like the script?

Marlena: I did. I found the script powerful and accurate.

Johnny: You know, this crypt could be a really cool location for my movie. I barely even have to dress the set. Ow. Ow.

Marlena: Sorry. I wouldn’t go in there if I were you.

Johnny: Is there a problem with me going inside?

[Uneasy music]

Tony: You know, a less confident man would feel threatened by you calling john black sexy. Excuse me.

Anna: Well, honey, I’m just being honest. I mean, 30 years ago, that man in a collar? Whew. And to kristen, he was forbidden fruit. I mean, according to the script, anyway, she was a young woman of great faith who was torn between her devotion to her poor blind husband and her attraction to the hot priest.

Tony: Oh, so now he’s sexy and hot.

Anna: Well, as was tony. Yes. Let’s just say that kristen was deeply conflicted.

Tony: I thought this movie was about marlena.

Anna: It is, but it’s kristen who drives the action. She’s one of the first to recognize that evil has come to salem.

Tony: Oh, sounds like quite the plum role. I wonder who johnny’s gonna cast.

Anna: Well, as far as I can tell, there’s only one person that’s actually perfect for the role.

Tony: Hmm, who?

Anna: Oh, you’re looking at her.

Tony: I think I need a drink.

Why hide your skin if dupixent

Tony: You wanna play kristen?

Anna: Well, if you are going to play tony, it just makes sense.

Tony: Well, let’s not forget that kristen left tony for john.

Anna: Yes. But as you pointed out, it was really andre that kristen jilted.

Tony: But she didn’t know that.

Anna: You know, I don’t know why this really matters. And I don’t know why you’re being so resistant.

Tony: Because I’m hardly enthusiastic about revisiting a dark chapter in my family’s history.

Anna: Okay. What if we ask johnny to rewrite the tony and kristen subplot and–oh, and highlight their love story. And then, in this version, they can end up living happily ever after, just like us.

Tony: Huh.

Anna: Hmm?

Tony: Mm…

Marlena: There is something in the crypt I don’t want you to see.

Johnny: What is it?

Marlena: A rat, a big nasty rat.

Johnny: A rat? I’m not afraid of a rat. In fact, I am writing one into my movie. Did you know that some people call rodents the devil’s disciples?

Marlena: I think there are even some non-rodent disciples. I think you should stay away from it.

Johnny: You sure you didn’t see anything else in there?

Marlena: I don’t think so.

[Eerie music]

Now what brought you out here?

Johnny: It’s gonna sound weird.

Marlena: Well, not much surprises me.

Johnny: Okay. Well, allie and i were using a ouija board, and we asked it if the devil was in salem.

Marlena: Hmm. Did you get an answer?

Johnny: The board spelled out that he was here, at this crypt.

Marlena: The spirits are on to me.

Johnny: What? Ah, right, yes. The board knew, I guess.

Marlena: Or the spirits knew.

Johnny: You believe in that?

Marlena: Yeah. I guess I should. I mean, after what happened to me, you know, I think I’d be crazy not to believe in the supernatural. Believe that it’s real.

Johnny: And that’s why I’m making my movie.

Marlena: Yes. Look, I know that you have skeptics, and some even in your own family. But I think it’s important that you carry out your vision. I mean, this movie is going to let people know there are forces out there that people can’t begin to understand. And they have no idea what the devil is capable of doing.

Ciara: We put a lot of thought into this decision.

Belle: Mm-hmm.

Ben: Mainly because of the history of mental illness on my side of the family.

Belle: Yeah, of course.

Ciara: Yeah. Ben actually spoke to your mom about it, belle.

Ben: Yeah, she really went out of her way, belle, to reassure me that no matter what genes our child ends up with, the love that we give our child is really what’s gonna be the most important.

Belle: Oh, so she helped you.

Ben: Yeah.

Ciara: Yeah. After speaking with her, ben felt a lot better about the situation.

Ben: I mean, she flat-out told us that we should have a child. And ever since then, she’s just been texting me and calling me and just really making sure that we’re moving forward with the whole plan.

Belle: Really?

Ciara: Yeah. She’s been very invested in me having a baby.

Belle: Huh? She doesn’t usually tell people what to do or make it so personal.

Ciara: Yeah. Oh, I’m sorry. Is all this baby talk making you tired? Is it boring you?

Belle: Oh, sleepy.

Ben: Oh, man.

Shawn: I’m sorry. This jet lag is killing me right now. I’m sorry. You guys mind if we go home, and we’ll pick this up another time before I hit my head on this plate and fall asleep?

Ben: No, no, no, go ahead. Go ahead; let’s go get you some sleep, brother. Good to see you.

Shawn: Yeah, you too. Congratulations.

Ben: Thank you.

Belle: Good luck with the baby making.

Ben: Thank you.

Belle: Oh, my god, is that such a weird thing to say?

Ciara: No, it’s not. It was so good seeing you.

Belle: So good to see you too. Oops, oh, let me grab this.

Ben: Oh, sorry. Don’t forget that.

Belle: All right. See you guys later.

Ben: See you guys.

Ciara: All right, bye.

Belle: It was nice to see you.

Ben: You barely touched your new england clam chowder. What’s going on? You want me to order something else?

Ciara: No, I’m actually not that hungry. Yeah, my stomach has been kind of funky all day.

Ben: You’re not feeling well?

Ciara: I actually think that it might be something else.

Ben: Something else?

Ciara: Yeah. I stopped by the pharmacy before I came to find you.

Ben: Is that what I think it is?

Ciara: Well, if you think it’s a pregnancy test, then yeah. It’s exactly what you think it is. I thought I was managing my moderate

Anna: So shall we offer our services to johnny and request a rewrite?

Tony: Well, let’s just say that he takes out the conflict between tony and kristen. Doesn’t that water down the story, huh?

Anna: Well, see, you are intrigued.

Tony: No, I just don’t think that an audience would like to see a married couple drinking champagne and talking about how much in love they are.

Anna: I disagree. I think people love to watch other people in love.

Tony: Well that’s because you know more about drama than I do.

Anna: How about I find us a good tony and kristen scene, and we can rehearse it together? Then we’ll be prepared to pitch ourselves to johnny.

Tony: Ah, hmm… you really think he’d want to cast us?

Anna: Darling, if you can bring one tenth of your natural passion and charm to the role, he’ll be begging to get us on camera.

Tony: Okay. Okay.

Johnny: Can I take a picture of you in that costume?

Marlena: Why?

Johnny: Well, allie told me that the ouija board was nonsense and that I wasn’t gonna find anything out here. I just wanna show her that she was wrong.

Marlena: Well, you didn’t exactly find the devil, did you?

Johnny: Still, you are here, and you’re dressed like that, so spirits didn’t lie, did they?

[Rattling sound] Did you hear that?

[Eerie music]

Marlena: I didn’t hear anything.

Johnny: It sounded like chains or something. You didn’t?

Marlena: Maybe it’s the spirits.

Johnny: I don’t think ghosts actually rattle chains. You really didn’t hear that?

Marlena: You have a wonderful imagination. It’s one of the reasons I love you and another reason that you’re gonna make a wonderful movie.

Johnny: Thank you, grandma. Let’s get out of here.

Marlena: Yeah, go ahead. I’ll catch up.

Johnny: Okay.

Demon marlena: I’ll deal with you another time, john black.

John: [Groans]

Shawn: Well, I cannot believe that my little sister is gonna be a mom.

Belle: I know. Oh, I’m so happy for them.

Shawn: It sounds like your mom really helped them out.

Belle: Yeah. Yeah. I’m glad she’s able to be there for them. I don’t know. Don’t you think it’s kind of strange that she keeps following up like that? You know, making sure that they’re still trying to have a baby?

Shawn: I mean, she’s always been really invested in ben’s health and happiness, so I don’t know, it makes sense.

Belle: Yeah. Just seems like maybe she’s a little overly invested in ben and ciara having a child.

Ben: Do you really think you could be pregnant right now already?

Ciara: Well, I am a day late, and usually I am like clockwork, so…

Ben: Well I–

Ciara: Well?

Ben: I guess we should head home and you can take that test.

Ciara: Yeah. Or I can take it right now.

Ben: Right now, now, like here now?

Ciara: Yeah, like right here right now.

Ben: Right, right. Okay.

Ciara: Like right… okay, breathe. It’s gonna be okay, babe.

Ben: Okay.

Ciara: Okay?

Ben: Hmm.

Ciara: I’ll be right back.

Ben: All right.

Ciara: Okay.

Ben: Okay.

Ciara: Okay.

Ben: Okay.

Ciara: Okay.

[Melancholy music]

Tony: You know, all this talk about the past has reminded me of when I first came to salem… oh, drumroll please, 40 years ago?

Anna: Oh, darling. You’re much too young to have done anything 40 years ago.

Tony: You always say the sweetest things to me, but it’s true. And that’s when I came to salem, at that time, that long ago.

Anna: A lot of crazy things have happened since then.

Tony: Yeah. Crazy things, sad things, wonderful things. But to me, the most wonderful thing of all was falling in love with you, my precious anna.

Anna: Your precious anna is one very lucky woman.

Tony: No, no, no, no, no. The lucky one, well, that’s me. I knew it from the start. I mean, the smartest thing I ever did was marrying you.

Anna: Are you serious? Tonight?

Tony: Yes. I’m serious. I want you to marry me tonight, right now.

Oh, let it hold you

oh, let it taste your lips

if only for this moment

for you I would do it again

’cause I wanna love you


it only

gets better from here

and I’m with you come


’cause beautiful days

turn to years

but if only the sunset

oh, let it

capture this night

only this moment so perfect

for you I’ll do it again

even for just one kiss

I’ll do it all just for this

Tony: Anna, it’s best decision I ever made those 40 years ago coming to salem… falling in love with you and marrying you, and that’s because, mm, anna, you are the light of my life.

Anna: And don’t you ever, ever forget it.

Tony: Never, never, never.

[Both giggling]

[Uneasy music]

Demon marlena: So nice to be back among the dead tonight. And, of course, my favorites, the really bad ones. Oh, ben, looks like you’ve been to visit your sister. Soon she won’t be the only bad seed in the family.

[Tender music]

Ben: Hey. Baby, maybe it was just a stomachache after all. You know, it’s probably too soon for us to even get pregnant anyway, right? But I promise you, we’re gonna go home, and we’re gonna keep trying and trying. What are you doing? What is that? Are you saying that– because you’re not really saying anything at all, but judging by the little smile on your face–what…

Ciara: We’re having a baby.

Ben: Having a baby?

Ciara: We’re having a baby. Are you happy?

Ben: Am I happy?

Ciara: Are you happy?

Ben: Am I happy? Am I happy? Am I happy? Am I happy? Are you kidding me right now? Are you kidding right now?

Ciara: No, I’m being serious. We’re having a baby.

Ben: We’re having a baby.

Ciara: You’re gonna be a dad.

Ben: You’re gonna be a mom.

Ciara: I’m gonna be a mom.

Ben: I love you, mama. Mom, I love you. And I love that we are about to have a baby together. Are you kidding?

Ciara: I’m serious.

Ben: Are you–

[Foreboding music]

Demon marlena: Your child will be mine, ben. Nothing can stop that. Not marlena, and certainly poor old john black.

John: I gotta get outta here. I’ve gotta save marlena. I’ve gotta save all of salem from pure evil.

Demon marlena: So… little allie horton doesn’t believe in the supernatural, even after what I did to her grandmother. I guess I’ll just have to make her a believer. Rise up, rise up, charlie dale, and prove to allie that my powers are real.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Brooke: It’s not that you don’t have passion or desire, it’s just that you don’t have that with quinn. You couldn’t with quinn but you could with donna. Twice. Eric. That means quinn isn’t the woman you’re supposed to be with. The woman that can make you truly, truly happy is my sister. Donna.

Shauna: Quinn? I got your text. It sounded urgent.

Quinn: It is.

Shauna: What’s wrong?

Quinn: What’s wrong? Oh, I don’t know. I dunno. How about my marriage being under attack again by the logans?

Shauna: Oh, no. What is brooke up to now?

Quinn: Nope. Not brooke this time, donna.

Brooke: I was just trying to help.

Donna: I know, I know. I just wish you wouldn’t had gone to eric about what happened between us.

Brooke: Why not?

Brooke: Somebody’s gotta be your advocate.

Donna: I love you for wanting to be that for me but please, just let eric make his own decision. I don’t want you or anyone else making this more difficult for him!

Carter: Hey, I got your message. About meeting up…

Katie: Um, yeah, yeah. Thanks for coming. Sit.

Carter: Of course. So, what’s going on? Why did you want to see me? So, let me guess… legal advice.

Katie: Maybe. But not for me. For eric and quinn.

Carter: Well, it might be best to talk to a different lawyer given my um, let’s just call it complicated history with them.

Katie: Yeah, well that’s– that’s kind of why I’m reaching out to you. Something is going on that you should know about. Something having to do with eric and quinn… and donna.

Donna: I don’t know how I keep embarrassing myself. No– okay. No more talking at work. From now on it’s just… “forrester creations, how may I direct your call?” And that is it.

Eric: Yeah, that sounds pretty boring. I much prefer walking in here and overhearing these thoughtful words of yours. It’s uh, much appreciated.

Brooke: Uh so, um, eric. Did you get a chance to think more about what I said yesterday?

Eric: Uh, brooke… listen, I realize you’re just trying to protect me–

Donna: Brooke, you’ve got to stop putting him on the spot like this.

Brooke: I’m not. C’mon. What happened with you and what didn’t happened with quinn… I mean, that speaks volumes–

Eric: Ugh, brooke. Please, please.

Brooke: Eric, eric, I am thrilled for you. I’m relieved that this problem isn’t permanent. And my relief goes beyond that, okay? I’m just happy that maybe you’ll be able to trust again, maybe find commitment again. To know love.

Shauna: Donna?

Quinn: You’re never gonna believe what I overheard. Brooke was over here, yesterday talking to eric. They had no idea I was listening in… what I want to do to that woman– what she was encouraging eric to do…

Shauna: Encouraging what?

Quinn: And I can’t even believe that eric would hurt me this way, not after everything we’ve been through.

Shauna: Okay, you are not making any sense. And, you need to take a deep breath and calm down. Tell me what happened. Because it sounds like you’re trying to tell me that eric cheated on you. And you and I both know that cheating isn’t exactly an option for him right now.

Quinn: Except it is. Every time he tries with me, he can’T. But he can with donna when you hear the word healthy

Katie: Eric and donna were just talking and… I’m not sure if you know but donna still has feelings for him and they were talking about that. And it just turned into this sweet, tender moment and they embraced and… I guess there’s just something about donna, you know, her kindness, that um, made eric react.

Carter: So, he can’t with quinn? But just embracing donna…

Katie: Yup.

Carter: Wow. Why tell me?

Katie: Well, I know you have feelings for quinn. You loved her, you wanted to run away with her and I saw how devastated you were when she decided to go back to eric. But what if eric doesn’t really want to be with quinn? What if he’s decided that donna’s really the right woman for him? That could open up possibilities for you. How would you feel about that?

Shauna: Oh, my god. Quinn, I can’t believe this.

Quinn: When I first started hearing them talking, I thought brooke was here for one of her regular rants, you know? You know how she loves to go on and on about how horrible I am and that the only reason that eric is… that eric is with me ’cause he doesn’t want to be alone… but then she she started talking about our problems in the bedroom. And, she said it– it was proof that that he shouldn’t be with me… because twice. Now, twice– during… a sensitive moment with donna, she made it happen. I mean, there’s a part of me that wants to be so happy for eric because I know, I know what this must meant to him, but I…

Shauna: But it breaks your heart that it was with donna and not you. So, they haven’t actually…

Quinn: What? No– I mean, I don’t know. They made it sound innocent. But you know the logans. You know what donna is going to turn this into, what brooke is going to turn this into. She actually told eric that his body was sending him a sign that he shouldn’t be with me. And that if he ever wants to be truly happy, he needs to spend the rest of his life with donna.

Donna: Eric, I– I don’t ever want you to feel pressured, okay? Or cornered in any way. Honestly, I’m glad you know how I feel. I’ll always love you. You have to know I’m never gonna do anything to jeopardize your marriage.

Eric: I know that, donna. I absolutely know that. I also know that something significant happened between the two of us and something that I haven’T… I haven’t shared with my wife. Yet.

Brooke: Yet? Eric, are you thinking about maybe not telling her?

Eric: She’s my wife, brooke. I want to be absolutely honest with her. I don’t want to keep any secrets from her and I don’t want her finding out from anyone else.

Brooke: Okay, but it’s not like any of us would say anything–

Eric: Look, before i go home, I wanna spend some time with donna.

Brooke: Well if there’s one thing we can agree upon: The more time you two spend together, the better.

Donna: She doesn’t stop.

Eric: It’s an adorable quality at times.

Donna: And other times, not so much…

Eric: Yeah. Look, I know it comes from a good place.

Donna: Yeah, I mean she’s so happy for you. So am I. But I don’t want what happened between us to complicate your life…

Eric: To complicate my life? Quite the opposite. You’ve given me hope, donna. I’m very grateful for that. I’m so grateful to you. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Shauna: I can see how much you’re hurting…

Quinn: Eric and i are working so hard to put the past behind us and move forward but is brooke gonna let that happen? No. No way. Her sister, donna, has the magic touch, so what does she do? She runs right over here, trying to fill eric’s head with all sorts of… ridiculous ideas!

Shauna: Where are you going? You’re not in a good place to be confronting brooke if that’s what you’re doing.

Quinn: Brooke is going to get what’s coming to her. But I need to get rid of her ammunition first. Donna thinks that she can hit on my husband? She may have gotten a response out of him twice, but it is not going to happen a third time. Trust me.

Donna: I am grateful to you, too. For all the lovely memories. For you being so sweet to me after I just admitted how I felt, anD…

Eric: That admission gave me a lot to think about, donna. You’re the woman who helped me bounce back. You– no, no, you reached to me in a way that i desperately needed. You make me feel like my old self again. You know, donna, whatever happens moving forward, that’s something I’ll never forget.

Carter: Are you trying to play matchmaker for me and quinn? ‘Cause I could’ve sworn you stormed over to my place and chewed me out about our involvement.

Katie: Yeah, yeah, I did do thaT. And I’m not a fan, don’t get me wrong but um, I care about you. And there are things going on that affect you and I know about them and i felt like you deserved to know.

Carter: Say that again.

Katie: You deserve to know.

Carter: You care about me?

Eric: You’re the woman who helped me bounce back. You make me feel like my old self again. I’m very grateful to you.


Donna: Oh! You just um, scared the living daylights out of me.

Quinn: Scared you.

Donna: No, I mean, not really.

Donna: Um, so I’m– I’m gonna just get back to my desk. Excuse me. Uh… I’m not sure what’s going on here…

Quinn: Really? You’re not sure? You have absolutely no idea? Why don’t you think, donna? Think. What is it you might have done recently… that might have upset me? Something that may have been… inappropriate with eric. I know, donna. I know what you’ve been up to with my husband.

Carter: So, you care about me?

Katie: Well… yes, of course, I do. I um. I’ve known you for a very long time. We work together. And, you know what? We have a vey important bond: We’re both card carrying members of the lonely hearts club.

Carter: That is true. My dues paid in full.

Katie: Lifetime membership I’ll have you know.

Carter: Don’t even say that. Don’t say that. It is funny, though. ‘Cause I never feel lonely when I’m with you.

Brooke: Eric?

Eric: Brooke, come in. I thought you might, uh…

Brooke: Might…

Eric: I thought you might be quinn.

Brooke: Oh. Uh, no. Are you really gonna tell quinn what happened between you and donna?

Eric: Yeah, she needs to know.

Brooke: Oh… eric.

Eric: What, you don’t agree? You don’t believe in honesty?

Brooke: No, of course I believe in honesty it’s just quinn. She’s gonna go ballistic. We don’t know how she’s going to react.

Donna: Okay. I’m guessing that eric told you the good news.

Quinn: Good? Wow. Good news. Really?

Donna: Quinn. Let me just–

Quinn: You know, I am so sick of you logan women always interfering in my marriage. First brooke, then katie… now you. I mean, at least the first two, they just wanna talk eric to death but you, you just– you took it to a whole other level.

Donna: Okay, obviously eric didn’t explain this very well to you.

Quinn: Hold on a second donna. I’m gonna ask you a question. You know, woman to woman. Do you have any idea how difficult this has been? Do you? To watch eric suffering, not being able to be the husband he so desperately wants to be? And I’m sure you assume, right, that I was– I was some sort of nagging wife making tons of demands on him. Oh, I’m sure you did but see, here’s the thing. Here is the thing… I was loving. I was caring. And supportive and beyond understanding.

Donna: I don’t want you misinterpreting what happened here. It’s just that eric and I have a lot of… history.

Quinn: Oh no, I don’t care. Oh, I don’t care about your history. That’s over, that’s done with. I– I’m mrs. Eric forrester. What is it with you logan women? I mean like, you’re like, “oh, oh, I see a married man! Oh good! That’s my challenge!”

Donna: I would never do that. Everything that happened was… it was… innocent.

Quinn: Innocent? Innocent? Oh, hah… oh. How stupid do you think I am? Actually, that was a rhetorical question so you can shut up. Listen to me for a second, here, donna. Okay? Hey! Lightning may have struck once for you with eric when you poured honey all over yourself and him but see, the thing is it’s not gonna strike again. Eric’s not gonna fall for it because I’m his wife. So, here’s the thing. I’ll make it clear for you. You’re gonna stay away from my husband. Did you get that? Maybe you didn’T. Let me tell you again. You’re not gonna go anywhere near him–

Donna: Okay…

Quinn: Do you get that? Okay. Let’s try for a third time and I’ll make it really clear for you. You are never going to see my husband ever, ever, again.

MODERATOR:  Awesome.  Thank you so much.  Suzanne, you’re up.

QUESTION:  Gloria, can you tell us something about your character in this movie, because I didn’t get to see it?

GLORIA REUBEN:  Well, Ginger Thompson is the journalist who broke the story.  I don’t know how much I’m able to disclose, but I will — You know, it’s common knowledge that a tape was leaked, and Ginger got hold of the tape from inside the detention center, one of them, that’s all I’m going to say, and she broke the story.  She, as soon as she heard the tape, she was up all night documenting it, writing about it, and submitted it to “ProPublica” and, yeah, the rest is history.  The whole world ended up knowing about what was exactly going on.  It’s great.  She’s amazing.

QUESTION:  Okay.  Great.  I can’t wait to see it.

MODERATOR:  Thank you, Suzanne.  Jamie, you’re up next.

QUESTION:  It’s such an incredible movie.  Judy, for you, what was it that really drew you to this project?  I mean to have four strong female leads is probably enough, but also the subject matter has to be a little strenuous on you as well though.

JUDY REYES:  I mean, I was immediately attracted to the story.  I’ve been a huge follower of the issues on the border for the last four years since it gained all that attention, and it really mattered to me as a mother.  I’m completely heartbroken by the fact that a government would separate the children from their parents.  I can’t imagine what it’s like and the thought of it always made me cry.  It felt like a bit of a gift to me when it came in my direction to be able to participate in the telling of the story, and I was just excited and really honored to be a part of it along with, you know, if — The truth is if women don’t do it, it don’t get done.  And so this particular film with all these women fighting for each other, for themselves, for the truth, and for what’s right.

QUESTION:  And for Camila, you have to cry on camera so much.  It was so sad watching you with all those tears —


QUESTION:  How did you get into that frame of mind to be so sad?  And then how did you shake off those sad feelings?

FATIMA MOLINA:  It was really easy, you know, when you know the part, when you know the characters, and I had the possibility to talk to Cindy Madrid, who is the real character in real life, and when she told me what she had to — what happened to them, to her and her daughter, it was like so painful.  It was like really, really strong for me and you cannot go in, into that kind of part, into that feeling knowing everything what them was going through.  And, I don’t know, for me and for actresses, actors, it’s I know that what we do is to entertain, but if we can leave a message to the world this is ideal.  And I think this movie, it’s doing a risk.  For me, it’s really, really important that the world know this story, this history, and I know it’s a great, great movie and that you will enjoy it.

QUESTION:  Actually, my question was for Camila.  Camila, can you hear me?


QUESTION:  She’s on – – I was asking you it must have been very difficult for you to have to cry so much during the movie.  How did you shake off all those sad feelings?

MODERATOR:  Camila, we can come back to you if you want to think about it.  Judy, do you want to answer in the meantime —

CAMILA NUNEZ:  (Speaks Spanish.).

JUDY REYES:  She said she felt it.

QUESTION:  Thank you.

JUDY REYES:  And it was, I mean, it’s the simplest way to put it.  She’s a really extraordinary young actor and who has a real, real understanding and a connection of the story that she’s telling, and it was a real thrill to be around her.


JUDY REYES:  And a real inspiration.  I mean, she’s a very powerful young actress.

GLORIA REUBEN (?):  She is.

MODERATOR:  Thank you.  Jay?

QUESTION:  Hello.  My question is for Gloria.  Actually, a two-pronged question for you, Gloria.  Did you actually meet Ginger and, if so, how did you find her?  And, also, journalism, as we know, is going through the times it’s going through, and reporters are being regarded and the way they’re being regarded.  Did you feel a special responsibility to portray journalism in the positive light that the story reflects?"Torn From Her Arms"

GLORIA REUBEN:  Right.  Well, I think the truth of the story reflects that kind of positive light on its own.  And, unfortunately, I didn’t get a chance to meet Ginger in person.  I came on quite late in the process just prior to the film starting production, but I did end up meeting with her via Zoom shortly thereafter.  And, again, needless to say, she is extraordinary.  She’s a Pulitzer Prize winner and has been a journalist for I don’t know how many decades now, but she is extremely committed to the truth, and as you said, journalism has been under attack, particularly under the leadership of the same person that implemented Zero Tolerance Policy, right?  So I think that that both kind of goes hand-in-hand with the destruction of the truth and humanity and what many of us experienced either as unfortunate witnesses or part of the destruction of those two things as the story reveals.  So, again, Ginger, as you can imagine during that time when the story broke and she did travel to Texas, that she was not the only journalist who wanted to get the story, needless to say.  That’s how our story unfolds, but there was, and I believe very strongly, a continuous effort and dedication and drive and commitment to true journalism making its mark, because eventually the truth is revealed.  Now whether people choose to believe the truth we have no control over, but for those journalists like Ginger Thompson the fight continues.  So it was — I know this is said a lot, and I have portrayed actual living people before, but this one is — it’s pretty cool, if you will.  It’s too general a term, but she’s kind of a rock star in my book, so that says a lot.

QUESTION:  Thank you very much.


MODERATOR:  Thank you.  And there is some Spanish dialogue in this movie.  Can you speak to how important that was?  Anyone can take that.

JUDY REYES:  For me, it was very important.  It speaks to the authenticity of the story that we’re telling although it challenges the audience to actually keep up, but the fact is is that’s probably part of the challenge of the situation that caused this so-called Zero Tolerance Policy when people are not familiar.  But it gives us an opportunity to step into a world, into another’s person struggle through their very experience.  So, for me it was exciting to have a film that presents the Spanish and that we struggled to keep it in.  It was very important to all of us, everybody that you see on the screen, for the very reasons that that’s the story that you’re telling, and there’s really no reason not to.  Obviously, you have to allow a balance but I think that we did a really, really wonderful job, and I appreciate Life time for bringing the story to you.

MODERATOR:  Thank you.  Howard, you’re up next.

QUESTION:  This question is for Judy.  As Gloria stated, the previous administration instituted this policy of zero tolerance and a separation of family, but that situation still is instituted.  It’s still occurring.  How many families are still separated and the reparation of the family members, how is that coming along?

JUDY REYES:  I can’t speak to the actual number, but it’s an unacceptable number.  It is in the thousands of the families that are still being separated from their children.  Some have been sent back.  Others are still here.  It’s been such a chaotic and disorganized and dreadful process that a lot of parents are having trouble seeking and finding where their children are.  I know that the current administration is doing what’s in their power to reunite the children, because they do acknowledge it.  We all wish, I know I wish, that it could be done faster, that more attention can be given to it, but I’m hopeful because attention, a light has been focused and given of the story of Cynthia and Jimena, and how the truth about the reasons that people come here, the struggle that they have getting here, the attempts that they make, the multiple attempts because things back home where they live are that bad, and the desensitization of the people who are in charge of these facilities, for lack of a better term, and always looking for that one light, because people who actually risk coming here are of extraordinary hope and faith and because they don’t want to surrender to the struggle, to the crime, to the threats, especially with their children, and I do appreciate the efforts that are being made by the current administration.

QUESTION:  Do you find any irony in the fact that this is a nation of immigrants and the fact that the person who instituted the policy was the son of a — a grandson of an immigrant and, yet, there seems to be a thought process that my family should be the last family that’s entered?

JUDY REYES:  Of course it’s absurd and it is rooted in a lot more than irony, and I also, as well as Fatima, got to speak to the people who play.  I got to speak to Thelma, and the thing about Thelma is that she’s been doing this for decades, because she knows that’s how it is and that’s how it’s always been, and our attempt in telling a story like this is it is that it changes, because it’s simply wrong.  It can’t be that because you came here before me or because your people came here in another way, on a boat, on a plane or whatever the heck, or undocumented, that you get to be the last one.  It speaks to a lot of the things that we have to pay attention in other countries where people leave for this very reason.  Nobody wants to leave their own land.  They want to leave fear and crime and danger.


QUESTION:  Thank you very much.

MODERATOR:  Thank you.  (Makeesha @ 01:27:29).

QUESTION:  Yes.  I had a question for Fatima, Fatima.  Am I saying your name right?

FATIMA MOLINA:  Fatima, yes.

QUESTION:  Fatima.  Yes, I love your name.  Yes, I loved you on “Who Killed Sara,” and I wanted to talk about how —

FATIMA MOLINA:  Aw, thank you.

QUESTION:  Yes.  This is a very different motherhood role for you.


QUESTION:  And thankfully because we didn’t even get a — Well, I don’t want to ruin it for anybody.  But, anyway, can you talk about is that one of the reasons you wanted to take this role? And are you hoping to sort of broaden your audience and get more exposure on this side of the mat?

FATIMA MOLINA:  Well, I have no doubt of this story, you know.  I think this is a (call about @ 01:28:17) has happened and continue happening, and for me it’s real important that so many people can watch this movie, this story.  It’s really, really important for me as a Mexican.  I know that we are speaking for a lot of people, and this is really important for all the team that we are part of this.  And I’m so sure that so many people are going to understand what we want to say, this is not correct, and we want that things change in these kind of situations.  We really need changes in all the world, and I’m so glad to be a part of this project.  I’m so happy to share with these amazing people.  They’re amazing actresses, and I’m just so happy to present this.  I know this is a big, big call to a lot of people, and I feel good.

QUESTION:  Me too.  Thank you so much.

MODERATOR:  Thank you.  And our final question before we go is for everyone.  If you could tell us what it was like filming on location in Mexico.

GLORIA REUBEN:  No comment.  No, I’m just kidding.


JUDY REYES:  You know, for me, because there was so much Spanish in the film it spoke to — it really challenged me.  Spanish was my first language, but I’ve communicated in English most of my life, and I’m from the Caribbean, and this is a, obviously, a Central American country.  There’s something palpable about the struggle that shooting on location brings you.  It kind of almost puts you in that place.


JUDY REYES:  I think as actors we also have a tendency to create it.  It’s not like we’re dramatic or anything, but it was — I thought it was really essential.  It brought a lot to me and that I’ll always have with me, and the wonderful people that we work with just worked really hard to realize this film.  I think they received a challenge as well through the story that we were telling.

GLORIA REUBEN:  Yeah, no question.  I just have to say, Judy, to echo that, for sure, the crew was awesome.  It was amazing.


GLORIA REUBEN:  And I didn’t do a lot of exterior stuff but of course to have that kind of, you know, the stuff, the scenes that I know were shot exterior, you had to have it there and you had to film I there, because it’s literally in the air.  Everything looks different.  Everything feels different when you’re actually on the ground in the areas where, you know, that are very indicative of the true story so, yeah.  But, again, the crew, awesome, amazing, hard working and it was terrific in that regard, for sure.  Great director, too, so.

MODERATOR:  Thank you so much.  Thank you to all our panelists today, and stay tuned for our next panel.

JUDY REYES:  Thank you.


Trailer Lifetime Site

Torn from Her Arms is the timely story of Cindy and Jimena Madrid, a mother and daughter who fled violence in El Salvador, only to be separated at the U.S. border. Detained in different centers, Cindy and Jimena’s story gained national attention when a gut-wrenching audiotape of six-year old Jimena crying for her motherwas leaked, helping to alert the world to what was happening to undocumented immigrant families at the border. Torn From Her Arms shines a spotlight on the harsh child separation policies in place as part of the zero-tolerance policy and the struggle to reunite families.

Lifetime Partners with KIND (Kids In Need Of Defense) on New PSA Featuring The Cast of Torn From Her Arms


PSA to Run on Air and Be Featured on Lifetime and KIND’s Social and Digital Platforms
To Help Bring Awareness to the Ongoing Family Separation Crisis

View PSA Here.

Los Angeles, CA (October 14, 2021) – Lifetime is proud to partner with Kids in Need of Defense (KIND), the country’s preeminent nongovernmental organization devoted to the protection of unaccompanied and separated children, on a PSA featuring the cast from the network’s upcoming film Torn from Her Arms.  Additionally, Lifetime is donating $10,000 to KIND, to help in their efforts to raise awareness to the ongoing issue of family separation at the border.  The PSA, which features stars Judy Reyes, Fatima Molina, and Vicky Araico, will air on Lifetime following the premiere of Torn from Her Arms on October 30 at 8/7c and will run on both the network and KIND’s social and digital platforms.

“KIND is grateful to Lifetime for reminding audiences of the needless suffering caused by family separation. It’s pain that continues to this day as many children remain separated from their parents and live each day with this trauma,” said KIND President Wendy Young. “Lifetime’s generous support will help KIND’s continuing family reunification efforts and our representation of separated children. Torn from Her Arms depicts a policy that must never happen again and encourages us to consider a more humane treatment of the most vulnerable seeking safety at our borders.”

Amidst the ongoing crisis at the U.S. border, Torn from Her Arms depicts the harrowing true story of a mother and daughter who must find their way back to each other after being separated. Judy Reyes (Devious Maids, Claws) takes on the role of Thelma Garcia, a Texas Immigration lawyer who works tirelessly to reunite the pair, and Gloria Reuben (Mr. Robot, ER) portrays Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist ProPublica reporter, Ginger Thompson, who broke the story. 

The movie follows Cindy Madrid (Fátima Molina, Who Killed Sara?) and her six-year-old daughter, Ximena (Camila Nuñez), who fled violence in El Salvador for safety in the U.S., only to be separated at the border as a part of the Administration’s Zero Tolerance Policy. Detained in detention centers in different states, Cindy and Ximena endured inhumane living conditions and inadequate medical care, but that was nothing compared to the emotional toll of being apart. Their story would gain national attention when a whistleblower leaked a gut-wrenching audiotape of six-year-old Ximena crying for her mother. The onslaught of media attention incited by Ginger’s story alerted the nation to the cruelties being committed against undocumented immigrant families at the border.


Kids in Need of Defense (KIND) is the preeminent U.S.-based nongovernmental organization devoted to the protection of unaccompanied and separated children. KIND envisions a world in which every unaccompanied child on the move has access to legal counsel and has their rights and well-being protected as they migrate alone in search of safety.

In 2008, KIND was founded by the Microsoft Corporation and UNHCR Special Envoy Angelina Jolie to address the gap in legal services for unaccompanied minors. KIND now has offices across the United States and in Mexico that provide unaccompanied children with holistic care that includes legal assistance and social services. Through strategic partnerships, KIND provide pro bono legal representation for refugee and migrant children across the country. Since its inception, KIND has received referrals for more than 27,000 cases and now serves over 5,900 children annually in partnership with nearly 700 law firm, corporate, law school and bar association partners.

Beyond U.S. borders, KIND’s Mexico-based offices and its programming in Central America works with partners on the ground to address the root causes of migration, protect children during migration, and connect repatriated children to essential services. Through its European Initiative, KIND and partners in Belgium, France, Greece, Ireland, and the United Kingdom work to ensure access to high quality pro bono legal assistance for unaccompanied children in Europe.

Each of these efforts informs KIND’s robust state, national, and international advocacy and public education work to champion policies and laws that protect unaccompanied children on the move no matter where they are in their migration journey

Elena: Oh, no. I guess I will have to figure out a way to carry on.

Noah: Dig deep. Find that strength.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] I will. I will figure out my breakfast plan. It was good seeing you both. I’ll talk to you later.


Noah: You are determined to get this story out of me, aren’t you?

Sharon: Well, not if you really don’t want to talk about it. But you already sort of admitted between the lines that there was a problem back in London. Your dad and I just want to know what’s going on. You never complained of being unhappy, and this sudden decision to come back to Genoa City is a little jarring. Though we’re thrilled to have you here as long as you want stay.

Noah: Okay. I — I was in a relationship. It was kind of a serious one — for me, at least. And…I just — I ended up getting my heart broken.

Sharon: I’m sorry.

Noah: Yeah. Me too. I promise everything’s gonna be okay. I hope you understand why I’d like to just leave at that and not go on a deep dive into my love life with my mom.

Abby: It feels like christine’s been on the phone for hours.

Devon: Well, that’s a good thing, though, right? That means she’s been able to get a hold of more of her contacts.

Abby: Yeah, I mean, hopefully she’s getting some information about where chance was when that bomb hit the building. I mean, he — he could have been anywhere.

Mariah: I mean, it’s true, you know? The first reports from the news about, you know, a big event — it’s always confusing and conflicting.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Tessa: Yeah, and chance was on a covert mission, flying under the radar. That adds an entire layer of uncertainty.

Abby: Right? I mean, we don’t even know if he was staying in that building. I mean, that could have just been a fake address to go along with the fake identity.

Ashley: Honey, here. I made you a smoothie.

Abby: Oh, mom, I don’t have an appetit right now.

Ashley: I want you to take care of yourself, honey, please.

Devon: Abby, come on. You really do need to, okay? Being stressed can make you dehydrated, and you won’t even realize it. And we have no idea how long christine’s gonna take to get us information, so, please, you need to stay strong.

Abby: Yeah. You’re right.

Ashley: Okay, I’m gonna put it here, alright? And when you’re ready, okay?

Abby: Thank you, mom. I will drink it. I promise.

Ashley: Okay.

Abby: Hi. Any developments?

Christine: Well, one of my contacts was able to send me some photos from the scene of the explosion. And I’ve been going through them, and [Sighs] Abby, there is one that I need you to take a look at to get a positive identification.

Abby: Alright. Oh, my god.

[ Crying ] Oh, my god.

[ Sniffles ]

[ Breathing heavily ]

Chloe: [ Laughing ] Wait. Who do you think is having more fun at the swings — my mom or miles?

Kevin: Definitely esther. I mean, look at that smile! Hey, buddy.

Chloe: Well, I’m glad that the kids have their grandma because we are definitely off the list of aunt lauren’s favorite things.

Kevin: What are you talking about? She adores bella and miles.

Chloe: She hasn’t liked any of the photos that I’ve posted of the kids in their halloween costumes, and normally she is the first one to react, with kissy faces and emojis. And — nope, nothing, nada.

Kevin: Maybe she’s busy.

Chloe: Or she’s still royally pissed off that I let sally go to tuscany and swap out victoria’s wedding dre.

Kevin: And you have deduced all that because she hasn’t liked your photos?

Chloe: Of her niece and nephew in the cutest outfits ever?

Kevin: I think you’re reading way too much into this.

Chloe: [ Sighs ] You know what? You’re right. You’re right. If — if I just want to see where she stands, you know, I just, um — I’ll use the tried-and-true old-fashioned way.

Kevin: Which is?

Chloe: Well, I’ll just go see her in person and see how she feels about the whole situation.

Kevin: Uh, that’s not a good idea.

Chloe: Why not?

Kevin: Because you already did the whole face-to-face thing and apologized.

Chloe: Yeah, and it didn’t take.

Kevin: Here’s what you do — give her some time and space. Otherwise, you run the risk of riling her up again.

Chloe: You know what? You’re right. Oh, gosh, you’re right again. Um, so, I’ll just — I’ll give her her space, and she’ll get over it eventually.

Kevin: Yeah, of course. I mean, unless sally has any other tricks up her sleeve. Does she?

Chloe: I mean, how — how should I know? She’s so unpredictable, and her dress was a huge hit in italy. The eyes of the fashion world are all on her now.

Kevin: Maybe that’ll keep her busy and out of trouble.

Chloe: Well, sally is thrilled about her success, as she should be, but that could make her over-confident and inspire her to take more risks, hoping for the same result. Plus, she is super grateful to adam for being in her corner.

Kevin: Oh, great.

Chloe: Yeah, which only means that there is no way in the world she will listen to our warnings to stay away from him.

Billy: You know, if you’ve gotten so many warnings about adam, why risk working for him, let alone dating the guy?

Sally: We’re not actually dating.

Billy: But you went to tuscany together for victoria’s wedding.

Sally: Adam took me to italy so I could show victoria the dress that I designed for her.

Billy: Oh, I see. So, you’re using him to further your career. That makes a lot of sense.

Sally: [ Scoffs ] Wow. Who hurt you? You’re so cynical.

Billy: If I am, it’s only because adam showed me just how low a human being can sink.

Sally: Well, that is not the adam that I know. I like and respect him, and you can put that quote on record.

Billy: Okay, well, I will file that under “famous last words.” You know, I will give it to him. He is smooth. He is charming. But that only makes him more dangerous. So, whoever this person is that warned you to keep your distance, they have your best interests at heart.

Adam: Sally.

Sally: Adam. Glad you’re here.

Adam: Uh, has chanccomm joined the list of media companies that’s very eager for a scoop on the future of newman fashions?

Sally: Unfortunately, no. Just trying to dig up some dirt on you. Is that about right?

Billy: That is 100% correct.

Adam: Oh. Harassing my employees. I think this actually is a new low for you, billy.

[ Sniffs ] What is that I smell? It’s the sad stench of desperation. (Vo) for over 50 years

Ashley: Honey, what’s in the picture?

Abby: It’s, um… it’s chance’s watch. It’s a family heirloom that

[Sniffles] Nina gave him right before our wedding.

Christine: Partially buried in the rubble of the explosion.

Mariah: Oh, abby, I’m so sorry.

Abby: No. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Um… I’m sorry for reacting this way because, now that I’m thinking about this, I mean, I think this is a good sign.

Christine: Why would you think that?

Abby: Well, I mean, this watch — [Sniffles] It’s engraved. I mean, it says “phillip chancellor” on it. He wouldn’t be wearing it if he was working undercover, so that’s got to mean he wasn’t in the building when the bomb went off, right?

Ashley: It’s a possibility.

Mariah: He could be in hiding somewhere.

Ashley: Yeah, he could be.

Tessa: Laying low until it’s safe.

Mariah: He could not even be in town and, you know…

Ashley: Yes.

Mariah: …Not even know that the explosion happened.

Abby: What do you think, devon?

Devon: I mean, I think that anything I would say would just be a guess, like the rest of us, until we have something more concrete. Is there anything else in the picture to go off of, christine?

Christine: You know, the building was leveled, so it’s just gonna take some time before we’re sure of what happened.

Abby: Unless he calls or he comes home.

Christine: Right. Unless that happens.

Ashley: Just keep praying.

Billy: You know, sally, my investigation isn’t the only reason why I wanted to talk to you.

Sally: Really? Why else could you want to talk to me? Unless you’re in need of a wedding dress?

Billy: No. I wanted to give you a little warning about what to expect from your new employer — lies, manipulation, deception, treachery. Am I missing anything?

Adam: No, I think you hit all the major bullet points, since you roll out this speech every chance you get.

Billy: Believe me, adam, I am sick of saying it just as much as you are of hearing it. It’s just crazy to me how you keep pulling victims into your web.

Sally: I am nobody’s victim.

Adam: How are things going at chanccomm these days? I mean, I don’t know if you’re the right person to ask since you are barely there.

Billy: Oh, do you have your little minions following me around now?

Adam: Oh, I don’t need to because you spend half of your time following me around, feeding your obsession, not doing any actual work, which I’m sure lily doesn’t appreciate.

Billy: Yeah, well, my job description is following you around. I mean, this guy has been a constant source of scandal and depravity you for years. And I don’t see that changing, as much as you try to convince everyone you’ve turned over a new leaf.

Sally: Well, then I guess we’re just gonna have to get used to you lurking in the background and hiding behind potted plants. It’s not really what i envisioned of ceo behavior, but, you know, to each his own.

Billy: Well, job number one of a ceo is to decimate the competition. Isn’t that right?

Adam: Well, on that point, we are in total agreement.

Lily: Hi. Hello.

Sharon: Hey, lily. What can I get you?

Lily: Um, the strongest coffee that you have brewing, please.

Sharon: Still recovering from jet lag.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.

Sharon: Noah and tessa sent home the most beautiful photos of the wedding in tuscany.

Lily: Yeah, and the photos can’t even do it justice. I mean, the palazzo was exquisite. The ceremony was so romantic. It was beautiful.

Sharon: You don’t say.

Lily: Oh. That doesn’t look good.

Sharon: Lily, you have got to rein billy in, persuade him to leave adam alone once and for all.

Chloe: Ah.

Kevin: Notification from lauren that she loves your photos and therefore forgives you?

Chloe: I wish. No — e-mail from another chain of bridal boutiques wanting to get their hands on victoria’s dress and asking to see what sally’s working on.

Kevin: Hey, way to catapult newman fashion into the stratosphere.

Chloe: I got to hand it to sally. You know, she really took a giant risk, and it paid off. You just can’t buy this kind of publicity.

Kevin: Yeah. How you gonna capitalize on it?

Chloe: Well, I mean, sally could focus on the bridal industry. I mean, maybe, but — I don’t know — I mean, she could just go in so many different directions. I’ve seen a lot of her past work, and she has so much range. And then when chelsea comes back, I am going to have the two most incredible designers working together. I — I predict the whole thing is gonna blow up. In a good way.

Kevin: I — I hate to point this out, but it could also blow up in a — in a bad way. You’re talking about two very, very big personalities.

Chloe: True, but that doesn’t mean that they won’t get along.

Kevin: But we can’t ignore the fact that sally apparently has a thing for adam, right? And to say that chelsea is possessive of adam is an understatement. How do you not see this as a recipe for disaster?

Chloe: Come on. It’s all gonna work out.

Kevin: Oh, yeah? You got some super powers i don’t know about?

Chloe: Yes, I do, actually. Wrangling emotional creatives is totally in my skill set.

Kevin: Yes, but — but adding adam to the mix makes this way more complicated than just dealing with sensitive personalities.

Chloe: [ Sighs ]

Kevin: Come on.

Chloe: I am at my best when I bring out the best in other people. It’s gonna be great. For all of us. It is.

Kevin: Okay.

Billy: You know, I will say congratulations. Somehow, some way, you are still able to convince women that you are a poor, misunderstood soul. I mean, at a certain point, they figure it out. Look what happened to chelsea. You do know what happened to chelsea, right?

Adam: Just ignore him.

Sally: You know, I don’t know what you expect. Is this supposed to be where i thank you for the cautionary tales? ‘Cause it’s not about to happen. I’m perfectly capable of looking out for myself.

Billy: Yeah. That’s what I’ve heard about you.

Sally: I’m sure you have heard about my past mistakes, and so has adam. I am guessing he’s been warned about me just as much as I’ve been warned about him, but we are rebuilding our lives, and we are doing that without judging each other.

Billy: Well, from where i sit, it only makes sense that you would avoid anyone with a rap sheet as long as his.

Adam: You know, it’s funny that you tell people to stay away from me, but you can’t take your own advice. You’re the one who can’t get over this.

Lily: I don’t really see a problem. I mean, they seem calm enough. Plus, I mean, I’m not responsible for what billy does. And I’d be surprised if adam asked you to intervene on his behalf. Did he?

Sharon: Uh, new pot’s almost ready. I, uh, didn’t see you come in. How long have you been here?

Rey: Yeah. You were occupied.

Billy: Hello, gorgeous.

Lily: Hey.

Billy: Can I buy you a cup of coffee?

Lily: Yes, please.

Billy: Sharon, do you mind if we get two cups of coffee to go, please?

Sharon: Coming right up.

Lily: So, uh, what was that happened with adam?

Billy: Nothing worth repeating.

Ashley: Abby? Honey?

Abby: Mom, I’m fine. It’s fine. I mean, I don’t know why you guys all look like the world is ending. Uh, thank you, christine, for showing me that picture because now that I have had time to process it, I know exactly what happened.

Mariah: You do?

Abby: Yeah. I mean, chance must have — have left the watch behind while he was working. I mean, he probably wasn’t even in the building when the bomb went off.

Christine: It just doesn’t explain why there haven’t been any sightings of him.

Abby: It’s probably just like mariah and tessa said. I mean, maybe he’s hiding. Maybe he’s — he’s somewhere and he feels like he can’t contact us because he doesn’t feel safe, like he can’t trust anyone.

Mariah: Anything is possible. We can’t rule it out.

Abby: Exactly. So, christine, please call whoever you can. Call any contact that you have. Learn everything about this, please.

Christine: I’ll see what i can do.

Mariah: Abby, is there anything we can do for you?

Abby: [ Sniffles ] Actually, yeah, there is. We can all hope and trust that chance is gonna come home. I mean, the odds have been stacked against him before. I mean, he has survived the impossible. Chance never gives up. He doesn’t give up on us, and he would never give up on himself. And so we cannot give up on him.

Mariah: No, of course we won’T.

Abby: Tessa, I mean, when mariah went missing, did you just throw in the towel?

Tessa: Never.

Abby: No. And neither did we. And the longer the weeks went on and the more worried we got, we never gave up looking for you.

[ Sniffles ] We knew we would see you again because we know who you are. You are a survivor. You are a bad-ass, and we would never give up faith, would we?

Devon: No, we didn’T.

Abby: And you made it home, you and the baby, safe and sound. I know that chance was not in that building. I know it. I can feel it. He is gonna come home to me and to dominic. We just — we have to keep believing that. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Sally: What was billy talking about?

Adam: Hmm?

Sally: Who’s jesse gaines?

Adam: [ Sighs ]

Sally: He was in tuscany and now he’s missing?

Adam: He’s just — he’s posturing again. And thank you for defending me, by the way.

Sally: Yeah, well, I’m not sure if what I said really made much of a difference, but…

Adam: Maybe not to billy. But it makes a difference to me.

Sally: Yeah, well, don’t read too much into it. I just was treating you the way I wanted to be treated, basing my opinions on who you are, not who you used to be.

Adam: Well, I appreciate it. And that’s actually why I came by here. I wanted to apologize for, um, being abrupt earlier.

Sally: Thank you. Billy seems like he’s on a real mission to bring you down. And not just you, but all of newman media. He’s talking about decimating the competition. He sounded serious.

Adam: Trust me. He is not a threat to newman.

Slly: I might buy that if you did. But you’re clearly concerned. You were — you acted like you were totally on board with this whole no-holds-barred business strategy. How concerned should I be that newman fashion is gonna get caught in the crossfire?

Adam: Not at all. You’re fine.

Sally: [ Scoffs ]

Sharon: How was your day?

Rey: Thank you. Oh, you know, I had a nice chat with noah. I came over here to tell you all about it.

Sharon: Oh. What did you two talk about?

Rey: First I’d like to hear about your conversation with lily.

Sharon: Oh, I guess you heard the tail end of that.

[ Sighs ] Billy can be so infuriating. You know, I just get so exasperated with him sometimes.

Rey: Hmm. Sounded more like it had to do with your feelings about adam.

Abby: Maybe I should have gone with christine. That way, I could hear the news as soon as it comes in.

Ashley: I don’t think that’s a good idea, honey. She’s gonna be dealing with so much misinformation. You don’t want your hopes to rise and fall on every single rumor.

Mariah: That’s right. I mean, you should wait until christine has some more confirmed facts.

Ashley: Yeah. Would you girls mind going into the kitchen and maybe — I don’t know — making some snacks or something?

Mariah: Yeah, sure. Of course.

Ashley: Thank you.

Mariah: Come on.

Abby: Eating is the last thing on my mind right now.

Ashley: I just wanted to help them — I don’t know — find something to do.

Abby: Well, what would really be helpful is that if everyone would just go home and stop staring at me while I slowly lose my mind.

Ashley: Honey, listen, we’re not gonna let you go through this alone.

Devon: Did I miss anything?

Abby: Well, I was just telling my mom that nothing that anyone does right now is gonna help the situation. The only thing that’s gonna help is hearing chance’s voice again. So I don’t care how many pictures someone shoves in my face, and I’m not gonna take the word of some stranger from the state department.

[ Dominic cries ] Baby, baby, it’s okay. It’s okay. Okay. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Mommy’s here.

[ Voice breaking ] Mommy’s here. It’s okay. It’s okay.

[ Inhales deeply ] Shh.

[ Breathes deeply ] Shh.

Billy: I don’t know. I guess jesse gaines has turned into an invisible man. We got our best investigative journalists trying to find him, and nothing. It’s like the guy’s disappeared into thin air.

Lily: And there’s no activity on his passport?

Billy: No one by his name has left italy by train, plane, or rental car.

Lily: Well, I mean, if he thought someone was trailing him, maybe he’d use a pseudonym. Or maybe he bought a car with the money that you gave him.

Billy: Or maybe he’s still in tuscany hiding out. Or maybe he’s six feet under. Reformed, okay? He is not a better person because he has got one less kidney.

Lily: No, I’m just saying that there is a range between angel and cold-blooded killer.

Billy: Right, he’s just misunderstood.

Lily: Why do you always think the worst of him? Remember when you thought that he poisoned rey, right? And he had been framed.

Billy: Okay. Adam and victor are coming after chanccomm. That we know is true.

Lily: Okay. So, what’s our game plan?

Billy: We find jesse gaines, dead or alive. He’s our best weapon. You have always loved vicks vapors.

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Lily: Look, if something did happen to gaines, our goal would be to prove that adam is responsible.

Billy: And a bonus to that — it would decimate newman media.

Lily: Please tell me that’s not the scenario that you’re hoping for.

Billy: Oh, no. Best-case scenario would be finding gaines alive. Then we get his full cooperation. That way, we would have the evidence to prove not only ashland’s crimes, but that adam and victorere complicit I mean, clearly something has happened to change that, and we don’t know what. I mean, maybe he got a bigger payoff. You know, that kind of money can make a man disappear.

Billy: Mm.

Lily: But, I mean, even if we do find him, he might not want to talk to us. So we have to find something more reliable than gaines to fend off an attack from newman media.

Billy: Got any ideas?

Lily: Actually, as a matter of fact, I do.

Sharon: Okay, sorry about that. I just wanted to make sure adam and sally had left.

Rey: Mm. Now that the coast is clear?

Sharon: I want you to know i would be just as annoyed with billy if he were attacking someone other than adam. He’s stirring things up again. And the accusations he’s making are way out in left field.

Rey: How do you know what he’s claiming?

Sharon: Well, I ran into billy in the park, and i overheard part of his phone conversation.

Rey: After I told you it would be better if you didn’t get involved.

Sharon: Well, actually, yes.

Rey: [ Scoffs ]

Chloe: [ Chuckling ] Did you have so much fun with grandma? I bet you need a nap and a snack.

Kevin: Oh, that makes two of us, kiddo.

Chloe: [ Chuckles ]

Kevin: Hey.

Sally: Hi. Look at this handsome little guy.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ]

Sally: Was that a yawn I see?

Kevin: Yeah. He had a very long morning with his grandma. They fed the ducks. They were on the swings. He’s basically living his best life.

Sally: Lucky kid.

Kevin: Actually, I hear you’re the one with all the luck these days. Congratulations on your show-stopping wedding gown.

Sally: Thank you.

Chloe: No, that’s not luck. I mean, come on. That’s — that’s a lot of talent and a whole lot of nerve.

Kevin: [ Chuckles ] Well, with a recipe like that, anything can happen. Alright, I’m gonna go grab some coffee before I head back to work. I love you, buddy.

Chloe: Say bye to daddy.

Kevin: I’ll see you guys later.

Chloe: Bye. So, how does it feel to be the most popular designer around?

Sally: Like a dream. I have been getting calls and texts and e-mails from fashion magazines and websites, department stores, and boutiques about my designs. Everyone but fenmore’S.

Chloe: Imagine that.

Sally: Where do things stand between you and lauren?

Chloe: Well, we haven’t made up completely, but it’ll happen.

Sally: Okay. Well, I’m glad to hear it because we may have another problem on our hands.

Abby: Shh, shh, it’s okay, dominic. It’s okay. Shh, shh, shh, shh, shh. It’s alright. Mommy’s here.

Mariah: Hey. Is dominic alright?

Abby: Nothing I do seems to be working.

Mariah: Maybe I can help?

Ashley: Would you mind warming up a bottle?

Mariah: Yeah, yeah, of course.

Ashley: Thank you.

Mariah: I’ll be right back.

Ashley: Thank you.

Abby: I feel like dominic can sense that I’m upset and it’s making him upset.

Devon: Well, hey, do you want me to take him for a minute?

Abby: Yeah. Would you?

Devon: Of course. Of course. Come here.

Abby: You got him?

Devon: Yeah. There you go, buddy.

Abby: There you go.

Devon: There you go. You’ll get your bottle, you’ll be feeling much better.

[ Crying subsides ]

Ashley: You really are a baby whisperer, aren’t you?

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Abby: Well, it’s a good thing because I can’t even do the simplest things right. I can’t help chance. I can’t give my baby what he needs.

Ashley: Honey.

Devon: Come on.

Ashley: The baby’s fine.

Abby: You know what? I think I just, um — I need some air.

Ashley: Okay. Want me to go with you?

Abby: No, no. I just need to be by myself. Thank you. Um…can you make sure dominic is okay?

Ashley: Yeah, if you’re sure.

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Abby: Yeah.

Ashley: Oh, my god. My poor sweet girl. I wish there was something i could do. I mean, this is so unfair.

Devon: Yeah. It’s okay.

Ashley: Oh, baby.

Devon: It’s alright.

Sharon: Billy was on the phone in a public place. It’s not like I tracked him down and was eavesdropping on purpose. But then I heard him talking about adam, and that’s when i realized that’s why he came to you with his accusations — because he knows that you’ve had personal problems with adam in the past.

Rey: Well, that’s a nice way to put it.

Sharon: And he was manipulating you. He was trying to take advantage of that.

Rey: No. I didn’t get sucked in. But apparently you couldn’t resist, which is why I didn’t want you to get involved — because I knew this is exactly how you would react.

Sharon: Well, this is a perfectly normal, natural reaction. Billy is spreading ugly rumors again. You know, he doesn’t even know if a crime has been committed or not, but he can’t wait to pin it all on adam.

Rey: Billy’s only asking questions at this point, and they do not seem unreasonable. Adam’s got a pretty nasty track record.

Sharon: Well, he’s changed.

Rey: It wasn’t that long ago that he kidnapped chelsea.

Sharon: That was a low point for him, but, you know, he’s come a long way since then.

Rey: Okay. Sharon, the sacrifices —

Sharon: Even nick has noticed the changes in him. He sees how hard adam’s trying. And billy has admitted to me that he’s never gonna get over what happened with delia. Every time he sees adam, he sees a monster.

Rey: Yeah. What do you see? A victim that always needs saving?

Sharon: No.

Rey: Okay. Then why are you getting involved? I heard what you told lily.

Sharon: Oh! Yeah, you know what? I shouldn’t have done that. I shouldn’t be telling her what to do. That really wasn’t my place. I think I just — it was an impulse.

Rey: [ Chuckles ] Oh, it’s always your impulse to protect adam. I think we both need some air.

Sharon: Okay. I love you, too.

Lily: Listen, I agree with you. We do need an ally. But we need someone more trustworthy than gaines, someone who has influence over victor and ashland. And you know that would be victoria.

Billy: Victoria?

Lily: Yes.

Billy: The one that is furious with me for bringing her groom’s blackmailer to her wedding?

Lily: Yeah. Listen, she had every right to be angry with you. But you redeemed yourself. You deleted the video that gaines sent you, and so now you’re back in her good graces.

Billy: I think you’re being a little too overly optimistic.

Lily: Why don’t you just text her? Just see what she says.

Billy: [ Laughs ] I really, uh — I don’t feel comfortable asking her for protection.

Lily: Don’t look at it like that. I mean, of course we can take on victor and adam alone. But if victoria can convince victor to stand down, then we can avoid, you know, battling over something that doesn’t need to happen.

Billy: No, I think you’re right. It is a good strategy. She’s a lot easier to find than gaines. But I am not giving up looking for him.

Lily: Fine. Don’T. But as long as we work this angle, too.

Billy: [ Exhales heavily ]

Chloe: So, what kind of trouble are we talking about?

Sally: Well, I was just at crimson lights, and adam and billy got into quite the disagreement.

Chloe: Well, that’s how they always act whenever they’re within spitting distance of each other.

Sally: Yeah, but this one sounded pretty serious.

Chloe: You know, I just wish that billy could learn how to walk away from a fight. What does this have to do with newman fashion?

Sally: Okay, there’s a possibility that I’m being paranoid. Adam said that there was nothing to worry about. I just got the impression that both of them are getting ready to go to war. And we have such big plans. We are on the verge of a huge breakout success. So, how do we make sure that the fallout from their feud doesn’t hit us?

Ashley: Look at him. So much going on around, and he’s just so peaceful.

Devon: Life is so simple when you’re this small. All you got to do is eat and sleep and just soak up all the love in the room around you.

Ashley: There’s a lot of that.

Devon: Yeah, there is. Ah. That’s it.

Ashley: [ Voice breaking ] It just breaks my heart to think that…you know, he might not ever meet chance. I know how badly chance wanted to be a daddy.

Mariah: Hey, don’t — don’t say that. Don’t even think it ’cause he can’t be gone.

Ashley: Listen, I really hope you’re right, you know?

Mariah: Should somebody go after abby and make sure she doesn’t need anything?

Ashley: I think that’s very sweet of you, but I think she just needs some time alone, okay?

[ Dominic fussing ]

Devon: Ohh.

Ashley: You really are a natural with him.

Devon: [ Chuckles ] We just like hanging out together. That’s all. [ Chuckles ] It’s okay.

[ Footsteps approaching ]

Christine: Where’s abby?

Ashley: She went out to get some air. Should I go find her? Do you have news?

Christine: No, uh, nothing new, I’m afraid. Everyone’s just trying to figure out how this could have happened.

Devon: I’m sure you have an opinion.

Christine: I do.

Devon: You can be honest with us. I mean, do you really think there’s a possibility that chance made it? Johnson & johnson is building a future

Christine: If you’re looking for definitive answers, I…

Ashley: We want your opinion. Please. Could chance still be alive?

Christine: Well, here’s what we know. The explosion happened in the middle of the night, so it’s not necessarily true that chance only would have taken off his watch to go out and meet someone. He could have just been getting ready for bed. But I didn’t want to say that in front of abby.

Ashley: I understand. I appreciate your candor.

Christine: I wish I had better news.

Ashley: Thank you so much for coming here in person to tell us. I mean, it couldn’t have been easy for you.

Christine: I mean, just now I’m devastated for her, and I’ll help her get through this any way I can.

Mariah: We’ll all be here for her and dominic in every way possible.

Ashley: Thank you, mariah.

Devon: Everything’s gonna be just fine, little guy. It’s gonna be just fine.

Abby: I told everyone that i needed air, but really I just wanted to be here.

[ Sniffles ] Where you proposed to me, chance, where you — where you asked me to be yours forever.

[ Sighs ] And you said our life would be full of adventure. That we could handle anything that life threw at us. And we made so many beautiful promises that day, visions of what our life would look like. And…I believed every word. So I don’t care what everyone says, chance. I am not giving up on you. I can’T.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sniffles ] Dad, hi. It’s me. I really need your help.

[ Sighs ]

Kevin: Hey, you working on a tough case? Or is this personal and none of my business?

Rey: No. Have a seat. It’s actually the same headache you’re dealing with.

Kevin: Adam?

Rey: You know, the man’s like a chronic disease. Once you think you got him licked and built up an immunity, he just pops up, hits you from a different angle.

Kevin: I haven’t had a good night’s sleep since chloe started working for him. I just know it’s not gonna end well.

Rey: You know, after everything she’s been through, why would she take the job?

Kevin: [ Sighs ] She did it for chelsea. She’s her friend to the end, and she wants her to have a soft place to land. Chloe’s strong enough now that she can take what she needs from him and keep her distance otherwise, but it still feels like she’s playing with fire. And the man put her through hell.

[ Sighs ] She’s recovered, right? But I haven’t forgotten. One of these days, adam is going to take a step too far. He’s gonna land himself in prison, for good this time. And as far as I’m concerned, that day cannot come soon enough.

Adam: Well, thank you for coming. Please have a seat.

You said you need some investigative work done?

Adam: This — this needs to be handled in the strictest confidence. No one can know about this, except us and victor.

Time ah. Come on, T. What you got, man? I usually have to work twice as hard to get a hit in on you. You good? Sorry, unc, my — my head’s not in it. I’ve been thinking a lot about that patient I lost. Oh! Oh.

[ Both chuckle ] Sorry.

[ Chuckles ] Morning. Hi. So, it’s, uh, re-negotiation time for the broadcast station retransmission fees, and it always goes down to the wire. So, uh, what’s your day looking like? Oh, same old, same old. Nothing as important or powerful as yours. You, uh — you were pretty quiet last night. You didn’t say a word before we went to bed. I’ve got a lot on my mind. Does any of it have to do with what happened to nina? Well, that was fast.

[ Sighs ] An overnight extradition to pennsylvania, and now here you are. You’re back, looking no worse for the wear. Well, looks can be deceiving. I’m exhausted.

[ Sighs ] Gutsy move, you know, showing your face here. Well, I can’t very well stay away from my own business. I thought I would just get a quick caffeine fix and then head in the office and see how many fires my arrest caused. Hmm. I’m so impressed that scott’s strategy worked, that they let you leave the state, although I did tell you that he can be fiendishly clever. Yes, you did tell me that, and I’m impressed, too. All I had to do was give them my passport. I’d say you got off pretty easy. Oh, ava, far from it. Sonny: Okay, here we go, darling. Cinnamon pancakes as you love cinnamon pancakes, right? Yes. Alright. You can put a little syrup, but don’t put too much, because lookit. Kristina’s taking you and donna out for trick-or-treating tonight, right? You’re gonna get a little sugar rush. You know what I mean? Yes. Can I get a little sugar rush?

[ Carly laughs ]

[ Laughs ] This is just perfect. I’ll never take moments like this for granted again.

[ Molly clears throat ] Be right with you. Now, is that any way to talk to a customer? Can we get some service, or am I gonna have to speak to a manager? Molly!

[ Both laugh ] Hi. Hi. So good to see you. Alexis. Hey. I came as soon as I could. Is everything okay? I need to talk to you. I have some news for you, too, but you go first. What’s this about? Hayden barnes.

Well, dad, thank you for breakfast, and I hate to eat and run, but I have to meet trina at kelly’s for a study session. Wait, don’t the two of you live together? And since when did kelly’s become a study hall? Oh, cameron — cameron works there. That’s right. I forgot. Dad, please. A ton of people study at kelly’S. And change is good. We both have a very big exam next week. Mm-hmm. Getting an early start, huh? And I do mean early. Have you forgotten what halloween is like in college? We need our evenings free. Have you forgotten that I went to university in australia, and, um, halloween was considered an american influence that our culture was trying to battle? Oh, yet here you are, a venture capitalist having drip coffee with your american daughter. So I wonder who won that battle. Touché. You know, I’m glad that you’re not letting this whole thing with your mom and sonny get to you, especially after everything that went down last night. Well, I learned to compartmentalize early. I wasn’t gonna bring it up, but since you did, how are you doing with everything? I mean, I think nina got what she deserved, but…still, watching her be arrested last night, it must have been hard on you. So, have you heard anything more from the corinthos clan? I cannot believe that sonny stood by and let michael do that to you. I’m tempted to go and tell him what he can do with his offer to buy charlie’S. I’ll tell you that. Hey, hey. That is not necessary, but I appreciate the support. You let sonny buy charlie’s, okay? I have no choice but to let this play out.

[ Sighs ] Well, so much for our hope that the two of you could learn to coexist in peace. Willow: Having nina extradited to pennsylvania is part of it, but mostly, it’s about our breakdown in communication. B-breakdown in communication? That’s a — that’s a pretty big statement, don’t you think?

[ Sighs ] I just mean I thought we had a good talk the other night about nina. I went away thinking we were on the same page, but clearly, we’re not. Okay, well, we — we agreed not to do anything about nina and wiley while tensions were high, so I didn’T. You convinced the D.A. Of llantano county to have nina arrested. Wait, hold on a second. I’m — I’m confused here. Didn’t — didn’t you agree that what nina did was wrong? Yes! 100%! Especially after you told me the confusion it’s caused for avery and donna. I’m not opposed to pursuing legal action against nina. If that’s what the family decides, I’d support it. So…what’s the problem? The problem is you weren’t honest with me, michael. I’m sorry if I startled you. I’m just as bad as those kids who walk and text or — or tweet. I’m sorry.

[ Chuckles ] It’s quite — quite alright. Uh, I suppose I’m a little jumpy, in the spirit of the holiday.

[ Laughs ] Right. Is that a map you have? Yes, it is. Mm.

[ Chuckles ] In fact, I probably look like one of those throwback tourists, don’t I?

[ Both laugh ] Maybe I could pretend this is my costume in, uh, what did you say — in the spirit of the holiday.

[ Chuckles ] Are you from, uh, out of town? Yeah, yeah. I’m just, uh — just checking up on family. You know, I was looking for the chuck. Is it nearby? It is, actually, but I happen to know that it’s closed today. Oh. I’m a member, so… wow.Are you an art lover? Yes. Yes, I am. Mm. And, you know, in fact, I appreciate all forms of art. I just read about a relatively new music venue. It’s called the — the — what —

[ Snaps fingers ] The savoy. Do you know it? You lost someone? I’m sorry. That’s got to be hard. Terrible choice of words. I meant that guy that vanished from the exam room the other night. So, I asked around the hospital. The volunteer meeting he said he was there for wasn’t real. I think I spooked him when I asked him to provide identification. I think I freaked him out. Tj, no, man, look. There could have been a number of reasons why he took off. Hell, I don’t know. Maybe he was undocumented, or maybe he was just trying to get a prescription for some drugs. Yeah, I-I thought about that, but it just — it wasn’t the vibe I got. Something about that encounter felt almost personal.

[ Sighs ] That’s because you’re an empathetic doctor. It is your superpower.

[ Sighs ] No, I’m serious, man. So, on the positive side — thank you. Yeah. On the positive side, you get two days off to just let it go. And, uh, correct me if I’m wrong, but two consecutive days off, that’s like luxury for a first-year intern, right? Oh, it definitely is. And I do plan to live my best life. As a matter of fact, what are you doing tonight and tomorrow?

[ Laughs ] Tj. Uh, you’re off. I’m not. But forget about me. What about molly? I’m sure she would appreciate seeing more of you now that you have time off. Molly’s fine. She’s catching up with shawn right now. Shawn. Huh, okay. So is that what all this was about? Oh, my gosh. It’s been too long. I know. Well, hey, you are the one who’s been in town for months and didn’t bother reaching out to your cousin. Well, molly, they have this new thing. It’s called texting, and it totally works both ways. Wow. Okay, true. I’ve been super busy. From what I’ve heard, you have, too. Guess we’ll leave it at that. You remember shawn butler? Of course. Of course. Hey, how are ya? I’m well. And look at you, all grown up. Yeah. And a working man, I see. Yeah, you know, I’ve come a long way from the son who could get his father to do anything for him. Um, god, it’s been years since I’ve seen you. I — you know, I’ve been away, and you’ve been away. Yeah. Well, you know what I mean. I’m — we’re both back now, so that’s good. From what I’ve heard, you should be focused on your own legal issues. Right. You’re at the D.A.’S office. Yes. And I have had to recuse myself from your case. Gotcha. Well, no hard feelings. Oh, duty calls. Alright, guys. Hey, uh, go grab a seat, and, uh, I’ll be right over, okay? Okay. Thank you. Okay, cool. Yeah, no problem. Hayden barnes? I-I know you and shawn were looking into what happened to her, but why do you think I can help? You and I are close, right? And — and despite the last few years, I am hopeful that the nikolas that I love and that I trust and know is still operating in there somewhere. So I need you to tell me the truth. No lying, no dodging. Just be honest with me. Think long and hard before you go any further with this. True or false. You hired the hit man that shot hayden barnes.

I had a feeling this is where you were going, especially after that tense moment with shawn the other day. I hoped that I was wrong, that it was all in my head. But here we are. That’s not a denial, nikolas. Yeah, and it’s not an admission, either. And I’m insulted that you would think so little of me. That’s even less of a denial. I’ve known you since you were born. I know you better than almost anybody. And I said to myself, if I look you in the eye, I will know if you are telling me the truth. Please tell me that you did not allow a man to be locked up for six years of his life for a crime that you committed. Hope you don’t mind I roped you into breakfast. Oh, not a bit. I barely see you and tj at home. I enjoy spending time with my daughter-in-law of sorts. Now, that an okay term to use for domestic partners? Oh, sure. Yeah, especially the “in-law” part. Hey, say it with pride — assistant district attorney.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah. It’s a far cry from writing romance novels. Hey, don’t knock it. Hey, “love in maine” had chops. Now, I guess I can admit it to you now, but the notes you used to ask tj for were actually suggestions from me. Wha– he let you read my manuscript early? Ah, I used to volunteer writing articles for the armed forces newsletter. Now, I thought I was trying to help, but you didn’t need it. I mean, one read, and I found out we had a prodigy on our hands. A future best-selling author. Oh, that’s sweet. I mean, as much as I loved writing, I ended up finding a new way of expressing myself — trying to improve the justice system from the inside. But, you know, I am not the only one with, um, an appreciation for righteousness, am I? Aren’t you looking to make a difference, too? Michael: How was I dishonest? You agreed not to challenge nina about visiting wiley, because the whole time, you knew you were going to get the llantano D.A. To file criminal charges against her.

[ Sighs ] One has nothing to do with the other. No, willow, willow, the whole — the whole point of — of charging nina with identity fraud was — was so that it wouldn’t involve wiley. It solely has to do with what she did to my father. Okay, this is what I mean by dishonesty. Yeah, I’m sure you’re right about the legal tactic. But I’m also sure that you didn’t loop me in because you thought I wouldn’t approve. You didn’t ask me or the rest of the family. You took it on yourself to deal with nina, and you handled it. You’re right. I did. Sonny: What? What’d I tell you?

[ Carly laughs ] You got a lot of candy ahead of you, girl.

[ Both laugh ] But mama carly said I can’t have it until tomorrow. No, that’s not true. You can have a piece for how old you are, so you get six pieces. There you go. But the kit kats always disappear. Huh. I know where the kit kats go. You know what? Halloween is a magical night. Who knows where the kit kats go? It’s kind of like the socks in the laundry.

[ Chuckles ] So, you’re in a good mood, huh? Yeah. Well, it’s halloween. Right. And thanks to michael, I don’t have to run into nina at every turn. I accepted sonny’s offer before his family had you arrested. I’d be happy to hear a counteroffer. Oh, no, no. What’s done is done. Besides, I don’t want you turning the sale of charlie’s into a battleground. And you know what? If I want to make amends to phyllis, I can’t buy her forgiveness, can I? You cannot pay for absolution.

[ Sighs ] Oh, nina, take it easy on yourself, okay? And remember that there are always plenty of people in this world who will give you hell for your mistakes. I’m not one of them, though. Jax: Nina?

Just came in to get a quick, uh, cup of coffee. Why are you here? You were arrested last night and extradited to pennsylvania. Yes, I was. I made bail, and I was allowed to come home until the trial. That’s it? You stole sonny’s life for nine months and took him away from his family, and you’re finally arrested, but you don’t even have to spend the night in jail. Didn’t you say you had some studying to do with trina? And then you show up at my mother’s hotel acting like nothing’s happened? Joss. Fine. Um, jax, you don’t have to feel like you have to protect me from your daughter. She’s made it crystal-clear how she feels about me. Well, she’s her mother’s daughter. Yeah, she is. What can I say? Yeah. You know I can take it from carly. But josslyn, she broke my heart. I’m sorry. You know, we haven’t talked since the night of the fire, and we couldn’t really talk in the hearing room. Well, I’ve been keeping my distance, you know, especially since I figured out that you were keeping your, uh, true relationship with “mike” or sonny a secret. Well, sonny is not the man that I fell in love with. And he’s not the man that fell in love with me. It’s like you were honoring the letter of our conversation, but not the spirit. Yeah, yeah. I know. I just, I — I realized that I-I was doing that while you were saying it, and, uh, yeah, that wasn’t right.

[ Sighs ] I-I’m not thrilled by your strategy. But I’ll admit it’s effective. The D.A. Obviously thinks he can win the case, and the fact is, nina did commit the crime. If you had told me from the start, I would have had your back. But you didn’t even give me the chance. You just made a preemptive decision and went around me. No, you’re right. You’re right. Everyt– everything you’re saying is valid, and, uh, I’m sorry. No, I think — I think, uh, the last few relationships I’ve been in have made me more, uh, guarded than I realized. I should have looped you in. But at the same time, willow, I-I stand behind my actions. Nina needs to be held accountable — not for anything to do with wiley, but because of what she did to my family. I thought I was your family, too. Portia: Ah, the savoy. Yes, that is great.

[ Both chuckle ]If I do say so myself, I feel a little bit responsible for it coming into being. Really?

[ Laughs ] The owner is — he’s a good friend. Wow. A good friend? Really? Uh-huh. Really? Wow. You know, tell me this. I read that the owner never ran a club before. Is that true? I don’t remember there being any profiles on curtis when the club opened. Uh, where’d you read that? Uh, somewhere online, maybe. I don’t know. You know how that goes. Anyway, I’m just curious what made him jump into the — I mean, the — the nightclub business? You seem more interested in the club owner than the venue.

[ Both laugh ] Me? Nah. Nah, I’m just a — I’m just a people person. Okay. Um…you know, it’s been so nice speaking with you, but I do have to get going. Oh, yeah. Yeah, of course. Enjoy your visit to port charles. Yeah, yeah, okay. Bye, now. Sure, sure, bye. Oh, sorry. Got to stop meeting like this.

[ Laughs ] Yeah. Thank you. Uncle, it’s okay if you’re too busy to hang. No, it’s, um — it’s not that. But I have noticed that all this extra time that we’ve been spending together, as much as I love it, I notice that it all started when shawn got released, came back to town. I don’t see what one has to do with the other. Well, tj, um, for six years, it’s been you, me, and your mother, and we were a family. And now your biological father’s in the picture. And I’m okay with that. But you don’t have to demonstrate that our relationship is now different. I’m not insecure in any way about your relationship with your father. In fact, I think it’s important, so I encourage that. And I know you and me, we’re rock solid. Always have been and always will be. We’re family. Nothing’s ever, ever gonna change that. Come here. You’ve been living with tj and me at my mom’s house for a few months now, and I always hear you talking to tj about wanting to find out what your next step in life should be. But when you and I talk, it’s — it’s nonstop news and current events and social justice issues. I mean, it — it’s clear that you’re passionate about these things, right? Maybe there’s a path in the social sphere that you should explore, somewhere where you can raise awareness to the issues that you care about. Like what, a-a podcast?

[ Chuckles ] I have no idea how to pod or cast. And I doubt my criminal record would support any kind of bid to become a public official. Not until I clear my name, anyway. How’s that going? Actually, there is a new lead to follow, but… it could send me down a path that’ll start a lot of trouble. Well, hey, whatever you decide, I am behind you. I trust you. Hmm.

[ Quietly ] Shawn butler is far from an innocent man. At the end of the day, he showed up to that location to kill drew cain. Do you remember drew? He’s the father of your granddaughter, scout. It’s only thanks to bad luck and worse aim that drew wasn’t hit by shawn. The salient point is that shawn didn’t shoot hayden. A hit man did, or a hit woman. But only you would know that, right? Because you hired that person. You had hayden shot, didn’t you? Alexis, don’T. If you keep pulling this thread, you are gonna make helping you impossible, especially now that I have secured your release.

The governor and i have gotten quite close ever since I dated his daughter, and I wanted to play this card at just the right time. Right time presented itself last night at a fundraiser we both attended, and I spent most of the evening championing your cause with him. What a fortuitous coincidence. I don’t suppose that had anything to do with our conversation the other night, did it? I reminded him of your role in exposing the corrupt judge carson, and I suggested that the state… show its appreciation by offering you a pardon. It’s incredible, right? The governor plans to issue you a complete pardon for your attack on detective falconeri, which is a little dicey for him — you stabbing a cop and all. But the governor, he’s prepared to take the hit as a personal favor to me. Now, of course… if I have to fend off groundless allegations that could tarnish my reputation, I mean, my political sway, it would simply… disappear. Along with your pardon. I had to come see for myself. And smirk?

[ Chuckles ] Um, yes. Watching you work at kelly’s is like watching the loch ness monster play the tuba. Ah. You know, you should — you should wear this as your halloween costume. You know, grandma bobbie loves when her employees dress up for halloween. Yep, you’re loving this. That, I am. I admit it. Great. Well, then, please enjoy my utter humiliation, but do it from across the room, okay? I’m not in the mood.

[ Sighs ] Spencer, there is nothing to be humiliated about. Okay? Actually, I-I’m quite impressed. You’re not relying on your family’s inheritance, and you’re making money on your own, and that’s admirable. You realize that all three of your parents are probably as rich as mine, right? Which makes me incredibly fortunate. And I try to never take that for granted. And, by the way, I never betrayed my parents’ trust or used a good friend and lied to her or committed several crimes and wind up awaiting trial. So, tell me more about spencer’s legal difficulties. Willow, that came out wrong. I didn’t mean that you’re not part of my family, because you are. You, me, and — and wiley? We’re a family together. I get it. It’s just… look, after our conversation about taking things slowly and that you’d be more comfortable with — with boundaries, I guess I just… look, we’re already living together. We’re sleeping together. We’re raising wiley together. It’s just hard to figure out where those boundaries are. Michael, you don’t have to explain. It’s hard to, I don’t know, find the line between moving too slowly, moving too quickly when we just — we’ve — we’ve been in love with each other for so long, and we finally get to be together.

[ Sighs ] I love you, too. Well, good. I’m, uh, very glad to hear it, because, clearly, I’m blowing it. Willow, I’m — I’m sorry for keeping you out of the decision-making process. I guess [Sighs] Maybe on some level, I was, uh… I was trying to leave you in the clear. But what about you? I just did what had to be done. And I always will to keep my loved ones safe. And I have no remorse about that. And I hope you understand. Can I get you a cup of coffee? Yeah, I would love a cup of coffee. Give us a chance to talk? Well, we really don’t have much to say, do we? Kind of in a no-win situation. In order to respect sonny’s wishes, I have to continue to lie about the nature of our relationship. Mm. Even though I’m facing criminal charges. So, if I can’t fix my legal problems, I’m just gonna focus in on crimson. That is, if I still have a job there. If you’re asking me if I’m gonna force you out, then no, I’m not gonna do that. You sure you don’t want to rethink that? You know it’s bad optics, having a convicted criminal at the helm. Oh, thank you. Well, you can’t run crimson from behind bars, that’s for sure. And it was a mistake to come back to port charles without consulting a lawyer first, who could have protected you and maybe prevented things from escalating further. There you go again, jax… trying to be my white knight. No. If this ordeal taught me anything, it taught me that you have to stop trying to save me. I’m a lost cause. Mommy! Hello! Hello. Oh, hi, there, miss sticky. Have you been eating your father’s pancakes? Yes. Hmm. But I thought I wasn’t going to stay with you until tomorrow. Well, you thought right. I just came by because I need to talk to your daddy about something. Hey, you know what? Avery, why don’t you go upstairs and see what pilar and donna are doing? Okay. Bye, mommy! Bye, sweetie. Ava, if this is about the custody agreement — no, no, no, it’s not. Sonny… mm. …These are the closing papers. I’ve had my lawyer look at them. All you have to do is have your lawyer do the same, sign them, and charlie’s is yours. Wow, that was fast. Yeah, it was. Especially since there was a bidding war. Oh, wow. I-I wasn’t aware of that. Well, things got a little crazy last night. Right? Yeah, things got really crazy, right, with nina. Must have slipped your mind, ’cause I-I-I know that you share everything with carly.

Keep your chin tucked. Keep your chin tucked. Okay. Did someone forget to invite me to the party or…

[ Laughter ] Hey. Hi, tj. You’re not working today? Hey, dr. Robinson. I am not playing hooky. I have two days off. Oh, well, you scored. I am actually on my way to kickboxing class, so enjoy your days off while you have them. Thank you. Uh, while I’ve got you, have you heard anything around the hospital about a patient of mine who skipped out before I could grab his I.D.? Oh, one of those. Um, no. But I’ll let you know if I do. Did he say or do anything fishy? Um, tj’s taking it a little personally. Maybe I am. The gentleman was so amiable, I can’t figure out why he would lie to me and then ghost. I mean, we hit it off. We were talking about life, family. Well, tj, you’ll find that working at the hospital, you’re gonna meet all kinds of people. He even asked a bunch of questions about you, uncle curtis. Me? Wait, w-what did this patient of yours look like? So nikolas wouldn’t even post bail? I thought he adored spencer and vice versa. Yeah, well, a lot has happened with those two since you’ve been around, starting with nikolas pretending to be dead for three years and ending with him marrying ava. Spencer feels ava double-crossed him when he was trying to get justice for nikolas, who, as it turned out, wasn’t actually dead. It’s a damn shame. Yeah, well, it all worked itself out. But the funny thing is, all spencer needs to do to make things right is apologize. I mean, like a real, sincere apology where he holds himself accountable. You know, nikolas has been so guilty about staying away, he would be putty in spencer’s hands. That easy, huh? Well, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration. But, yeah, I-I mean, it would be a good start. Nikolas has that cassadine ruthlessness and a seemingly cold heart. But that heart melts when it comes to his son. Spencer’s always been his achilles’ heel. So we have quid pro quo, huh, that if shawn and i drop the investigation and forget that you initiated that hit on hayden, then you will facilitate my pardon. My silence buys my freedom. I never said anything of the sort. Did you even think that I would be tempted by this blatant attempt at extortion? Again, I have no idea what you’re talking about. But for argument’s sake… I contend everyone has a price. So the question is, what’s yours? We may not be on the same page right now. But it doesn’t change how I feel about you. I really missed snuggling up against you last night. Yeah, so did I. And knowing how hard we fought to be together, how we already know we want to spend our lives together raising wiley, maybe taking it slow just made things messy. I-I-I’ll go with confusing.

[ Chuckles ] Well, I’m not confused. And there’s one thing I know for sure. I don’t want there to be a division between the part of your life that you let me in and the part of your life that you try to shield me from. That might work for some relationships, but I don’t want that for us. I don’t want that, either. Look, other than our son, there’s nothing more important to me. And I’m gonna spend every day proving that you. Starting now. Alright, ava, I’m gonna have diane look this over. Cool. So, once they’re signed and the money is wired, then I will leave the keys with kristina, and it’s all done. Mm-hmm. So, uh, if you don’t mind, I’m gonna go up and say goodbye to avery. Is that okay? Yeah, you know the way. Yep. That really was quick. Yeah, in a good way. Yeah. I love the way you do business. I do. And I hope that phyllis will take you up on your offer and stay here. I got to go to work. Mwah. I love you. Yeah, love you, too. Oh, no, I am hanging up my armor. I mean, I didn’t do so well last time I tried to shield you from the truth about nelle, remember? But I can’t help but wonder if that’s what set this whole thing in motion. Jax, you’ve got to stop. You know, part of me making things right is taking full ownership of my actions. You had nothing to do with my choices. That was my responsibility. I’m gonna face the consequences. It’s the only way that I can move forward. Well, I appreciate you for that. Well, do you appreciate me enough to respect my wishes? I’m talking about carly, jax. Are you planning on telling carly about me and sonny?

Enjoy your kickboxing class. I got to check on my new sound system upgrade. Curtis, curtis, uh, wait a second. Yeah. I ran into someone on the way over here, and he was asking questions about you, too. Tj: Where’s shawn? Oh, he had someplace to be. I thought you were gonna be busy all day. Yeah, I was planning to be, but then I came to my senses. Instead of spending my precious time off boxing with curtis, I should spend it with my beautiful partner. Mm. Well, on the bright side, at least now I know how to make kelly’s famous hot cocoa. Yum. “A”-plus work. Um, can you leave my tab open? Because trina’s gonna come here and do a study session with me. Would you mind studying at haven bistro? I just really don’t want trina seeing me like this. If that’s how you want it, yes, I will take trina someplace else, but for today and for today only. Okay? Because you have nothing to be embarrassed about, spencer. To work is a good thing. It’s an admirable thing. And when I see cam doing his shifts in here, not only do I think it’s hot, but it makes me even prouder of him. That is a horrible pep talk, josslyn. Okay, well, of course, there’s always the easiest solution. Pray tell. Enlighten me. Get over yourself and go make things right with your father. Keep the change. You don’t have to give me an answer now. Just think it over. The benefits, the consequences. Shawn. I’ll let you both get caught up. Well, what happened? Did nikolas say anything that we can use against him? I’m finished talking myself out of this. Talking yourself out of what? What do you mean? Michael, what are you doing? What does it look like I’m doing? Willow tait… I’m asking you to marry me. You’re not the only one that’s been rethinking their life. I realize I have to focus on my own path outside of you and carly. And that means staying out of the war zone. Look. Carly won’t hear the truth you’ve been keeping from her. Not from me.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Hello? Operator: You have a collect call from flatland federal prison inmate cyrus renault. Will you accept the charges?

Days of Our Lives Transcript

Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Brady: That jackass thinks I slept with chloe. I gotta warn her.

[Groans] Where’d you put your phone, brady?

[Tense music]

Kristen: Oh, brady. I wish I could stay, but don’t you worry. I won’t be gone long.

[Phone ringing]

Victor: Who’s this?

Melinda: Good evening to you too, mr. Kiriakis. It’s melinda trask. So I guess our deal is off.

Victor: Why would you say that?

Melinda: Well, I haven’t heard from you, so I assume that means you haven’t found kristen dimera.

Rachel: Mommy?

Kristen: Oh, baby, hi. It’s me. It’s me.

Nicole: Surprise.

Ej: Nicole. I was just thinking about you.

Nicole: Oh. Well, I got your message about dinner, and I was hoping the invitation still stands.

Kristen: I can’t believe you left your phone alone with those nosy do-gooders.

Ej: Actually, they weren’t alone. Of course the invitation still stands. I’m so very glad you decided to accept.

Nicole: Thank you.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Philip: Were you expecting someone else?

Chloe: No. Just surprised to see you here.

Philip: Why? I mean, I know you moved out, but we’re still together, right?

Chloe: Yeah, but we haven’t spoken since I left the mansion, and I didn’t tell you where I was going.

Victor: It’s only been 24 hours.

Melinda: I’m the district attorney. Every minute that goes by, the people of salem grow more impatient. They know that one of your nephews was arrested for drug trafficking and the other for blackmailing a judge. Now, I’m prepared to dismiss the charges against them if you give me ms. Dimera. Otherwise, I’ll proceed to trial. Now, do you have her or not?

Victor: I haven’t managed to track down that she-devil as yet.

Melinda: In other words, you can’t come through.

Victor: Nonsense. I’ve got steve johnson on the case. I assure you, he’ll find her. Good evening, ms. Trask.

Jack: Were you just talking with the da?

Victor: Maybe we can get her to prosecute you for eavesdropping.

Jack: Aw, come on, victor. As long as I’m here, why don’t you tell me about the deal you just made with her?

Xander: Am I being released?

Melinda: Why would you think that?

Xander: I thought my uncle victor–

Melinda: You thought wrong. Your uncle hasn’t met my terms.

Xander: Then what am i doing up here?

Melinda: Someone demanded to see you.

Limu emu & doug

Kristen: Oh, sweetheart, I missed you so, so much.

Rachel: Daddy said you had to go away.

Kristen: I did, I did. But I never wanted to leave you. But guess what? Tonight, I am so excited, because I got to come see you. But you know what, sweetie, rachel, I need you to promise me that it’ll just be between you and I. Can you do that for me? That’s my good little girl. Oh, sweetheart, I have missed you. I’ve missed you so much. Do you know what I miss most about? This–mm-hmm. I missed reading you bedtime stories, and I missed picking out–well, helping you pick out your clothes, because I know how much you like to do that on your own. But I bet you have to wear that funny little coat– that peach coat, now that it’s colder out, yeah?

Rachel: I wore it pumpkin picking with daddy and chloe.

Kristen: That-that’s nice. That’s nice. You, daddy, and chloe. Well, that must have been a fun trip. Hey. Hey, speaking of trips, how about you and I go on a trip of our own, just the two of us? What do you think? Yeah?

Chloe: Philip, how did you know I was here?

[Phone ringing] Sorry, one second.

Philip: Do you need to get that?

Chloe: No. It’s not important.

Brady: Hey, chlo, listen, it’s me. I wanted to give you a heads up. Lucas just left. Apparently he and philip saw me carrying your bags into the salem inn last night. Philip has assumed the worst, and he thinks that we spent the night together. Now, I refused to dignify his accusation by getting into it, so I didn’t tell lucas anything. But I wanted you to know, just in case you were blindsided by one of philip’s famous freak-outs.

Nicole: I’m really glad that I’m here with you tonight. It’s keeping me from losing it over abe.

Ej: I’m terribly sorry about what happened.

Nicole: It’s just shocking. The mayor being shot at point blank range in the park, I–

[Sighs] I know he’s gonna be okay. I know it.

Ej: I’m sure sending your love his way will make a big difference.

Nicole: Yeah, I don’t know.

Ej: I do. How’s the pizza?

Nicole: It’s great. But I do have to say, when you invited me over for dinner, I didn’t think we’d be having takeout.

[Both chuckle]

Ej: Were you thinking a 12-course repast in the formal dining room?

Nicole: To be honest, yes.

Ej: I do tend towards ceremony. But I quite enjoy being spontaneous from time to time.

Nicole: Like when?

Ej: Well, I don’t think a man who would marry samantha brady or nicole walker would be inclined to an entirely predictable life.

Nicole: Probably not.

Ej: And being unpredictable can keep one’s enemies on their toes. When you employ the element of surprise, it makes it that much harder for them to betray you.

Xander: Gwen, how are you?

Gwen: Not bad. All things considered.

Xander: I’ve missed you.

Gwen: I’ve missed you too.

Xander: How have they been treating you?

Gwen: You’ve got 30 minutes, and there’s a cop right outside the door, so don’t try anything stupid. No touching! My nunormal?

Xander: God, I wish I could kiss you.

Gwen: I know, me too. But look, we don’t have much time. Talk to me. Tell me what’s going on.

Xander: Well, I did see your father last night.

Gwen: Did he give you my message?

Xander: You mean did he tell me that you were willing to confess so I can go free? Gwen, what are you thinking?

Gwen: You don’t belong here.

Xander: We’ve been over this.

Gwen: But you don’t deserve to be locked up here. You had nothing to do with it.

Xander: I can think of quite a few people who disagree with you.

Gwen: Well, it’s out of your hands now. My father is going to go and speak to the da.

Xander: No, he’s not! I told you not to say a word to that witch!

Gwen: Xander, if you want to atone for your sins, there has to be a better way.

Xander: Like what? Go see a priest, say a few hail marys? Sorry, darling, that ship has sailed.

Gwen: Why are you so bloody stubborn?

Xander: I’m not just gonna abandon you, gwen. We’re in this together. Besides, there might be another way out of here.

Gwen: Yeah, I did hear about that. Bonnie told me that justin told her that trask might consider dropping the charges against the four of us. But it seems like wishful thinking, no?

Xander: Not necessarily. There is a plan in the works.

Victor: What deal? I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Jack: I think you do. I saw xander last night. He said trask strongly implied she was about to drop the charges against him. You have anything to do with that? Maybe you made some sort of arrangements?

Victor: Suppose that were the case. What the hell do you care?

Jack: Of course I care, victor. I don’t want them going to prison. Xander’s my friend, justin will always be family, and gwen’s my daughter.

Victor: Whoa, who said anything about gwen?

Nicole: Betray you? What do you mean? You haven’t heard from sami, have you?

Ej: No, no, no, no. I wasn’t referring to my soon-to-be ex-wife’s indiscretion. I suppose I just have treachery on the brain.

Nicole: Oh?

Ej: You remember last night, when we had dinner, and steve johnson and his wife approached our table?

Nicole: It’s kind of hard to forget, especially because she was so smashed, and she knocked over that glass of wine and almost ruined your beautiful italian tie.

Ej: Right. And I had just assumed that she’d had a difficult day and over-indulged. But later, I realized that her drunken display was just a ruse. An aversion to allow her husband to tamper with my phone, which I’d left on the table in my haste to salvage my neckwear.

Nicole: Why would steve want to mess with your phone?

Ej: So he could track down my sister. Question is: Why would they have chosen that moment to do it? I mean, they must have known that you would have stopped steve from putting his hands on my personal property. Unless they had already organized another ruse to entice you away from the table as well. However, that just seems unlikely, considering you were all still there when I returned.

Nicole: Okay. Okay, I admit it. I let steve hack into your phone.

[Suspenseful music]

Kristen: Honey, I know that you don’t like wearing this jacket, but it’s only for a little while, all right?

Rachel: Shall we say goodbye to daddy?

Kristen: No, no, sweetie. We have to keep it a secret even from daddy. Yeah, yeah, this is a special, special trip for mommy and rachel, remember?

Chloe: Sorry about that.

Philip: No problem.

Chloe: So how did you know that I was here?

Philip: From your assistant.

Chloe: Oh, you mean grace.

Philip: Right, grace. I called your office. I figured she might have your new address. Don’t worry, she’s not giving your confidential information to random strangers. I told her I’m your boyfriend, which I still am, right?

Chloe: Yeah, of course.

Philip: Good. So, I was hoping we could have dinner together.

Chloe: Oh, you want to order some room service?

Philip: Unless you’ve already eaten.

Chloe: No, I have not.

Philip: Good. Because the fried chicken here is killer.

Ej: And what’s even more appalling than your betrayal is the fact that you had the nerve to show your face in this house! By all rights, I should fire you and throw you out!

Nicole: I’m sorry. I’m sorry for going behind your back, ej. I truly am. But I am not the least bit sorry that steve is hunting down your sister. Do you have any idea what she has done to people? Do you have any idea what she has done to me? She locked me up and she stole my life, so if steve wants to drag her ass back here, then I am all in.

Ej: I can understand your antipathy towards my sister. And while I would never try and sugarcoat what she did to you, you must know that kristen’s life isn’t easy right now. She’s on the run, separated from her daughter.

Nicole: And I sympathize with rachel, of course I do. ‘Cause it’s not her fault that she has a raging lunatic for a mother. That little girl suffers every day with confusion and sadness and pain.

Ej: My sister has made a lot of mistakes, big mistakes. But she is devoted to her daughter.

Nicole: A daughter that wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t stolen my identity, and she got pregnant because she slept with brady while she was pretending to be me!

Ej: Let’s not go there.

Nicole: No, we’re gonna go there! While kristen had me locked up, she kidnapped my daughter, and she wouldn’t let me have her back until I let her take over my life. And then when she did go back to salem, disguised as me, she told everyone that holly died in a horrific accident. You think about that, ej! Think about that! She faked the death of a child so she could suck brady back in. So I don’t give a damn how much kristen is hurting, ’cause I’ll never feel sorry for that miserable bitch.

Kristen: Get out of my way. My daughter and I have plans. Please, steve, this does not concern you.

Brady: Kristen. What’s going on? What are you doing? Why is steve here?

Steve: I’m on assignment. I can tell you more about that later. But right now, maybe you want to get this little girl back to bed.

Brady: That’s a good idea. Come on, honey. Let’s go, sweetie. Let’s get you back into bed, okay? Come on.

Kristen: You son of a bitch! I just wanted to spend time with my little girl.

Steve: Well, given the backpack and the coat, I’d say it was more than that.

Kristen: Why are you doing this? Why are you tracking me down like a dog?

Steve: Victor kiriakis hired me to find you.

Kristen: Oh god, I should have known. So you’re his bounty hunter now?

Steve: I’m a private investigator.

Kristen: Yeah, who gets paid to tear kids away from their mothers.

Steve: You’re a fugitive. You know that, right?

Kristen: Yeah, and I also know that you’re not a cop, so you can go straight to hell.

Steve: Okay, listen, listen, we can do this the easy way or the hard way, your choice.

Kristen: Easy way? Have you met me? Making things difficult is my stock-in-trade. I thought I was managing my moderate

Chloe: Mmm. Oh my god, this is so good.

Philip: Told you.

Chloe: I would never think, in a million years, to order the fried chicken here.

Philip: Mm-hmm. I love the food at the mansion, but this is one dish cook hasn’t quite mastered yet.

Chloe: Well, I don’t think victor’s really the “eat with your hands type. And the more that I’m doing it, I can understand why. Oh my goodness, do we have any extra napkins?

Philip: Here, take mine.

Chloe: Oh, thank you.

Philip: Your, uh, your face.

Chloe: What?

Philip: Your–you got something on your cheek.

Chloe: Oh, no.

[Romantic music]

Ej: I’m not denying that kristen committed a horrible crime against you.

Nicole: Then you can understand why I let steve hack into your phone.

Ej: I don’t like it. But yes. I understand your feelings very well. But I’m afraid i don’t share them. No matter what she’s done, kristen is still my sister. She’s extremely loyal, and has always looked out for me.

Nicole: I know she wrote you that letter exposing sami’s affair.

Ej: She saved me from a lifetime of humiliation. If she hadn’t opened my eyes, I’d have remained in my marriage, completely oblivious to the fact that I was being played for a fool. And it’s thanks to her that I knew I had to act. And by act, I mean permanently and immediately kicking samantha out of my house and out of my life.

Nicole: Well, if it’s permanently over with sami, then why are you still wearing your wedding ring?

Kristen: You have to make it so tight?

Steve: You were the one who wanted to make things difficult. Okay.

Kristen: How’s rachel?

Brady: She’s settled back into bed. She’s a little wound up, for obvious reasons. I don’t know if she’s gonna sleep for a while. What are you doing?

Kristen: Just wanted to see our little girl.

Brady: So you broke in.

Kristen: I haven’t seen her for months, brady.

Brady: What was your plan, kristen? You sneak in here–where were you gonna take her?

Kristen: No, I just wanted to spend a little time with her, that’s all.

Brady: My god, I can’t– I can’t believe you did that. Just when I think all this psycho behavior is done, you do this crap again.

Kristen: Oh my god, how can you be so cruel? I am all alone. After you cut me off, rachel’s all in have left. And I have no contact with her.

Brady: Kristen, who’s fault is that?

Kristen: I can’t do this anymore. I can’t do it; I can’t bear it. I can’t bear–I can’t bear never hearing her little voice or holding her little hand. I miss her, brady. I miss her so much. And I know she misses me too. I could see it in her eyes.

Steve: Okay, come on, let’s go.

Kristen: No, no! Please, don’t let him do this. Don’t let him take me away. Stop it. I know I’ve done terrible things. I know I have. But I am still rachel’s mother.

Steve: Okay, let’s go. Come on.

Kristen: You know what, you know who’s behind all this? You know who steve’s on assignment for? Your grandfather.

Brady: Victor?

Kristen: Yeah. That’s what mr. Black patch here just told me. Victor is paying him to do this. Can you believe that? That monster–what he already did to me, what he did to us, brady.

Brady: Is that true?

Steve: Yeah.

Kristen: Don’t let this happen. That heartless bastard separated me from rachel once before. I am begging you, don’t let him do it again. Please.

Jack: So you’re just gonna let gwen and bonnie languish in jail?

Victor: I don’t care where they languish. I’m dealing with my family. Anyone else, not my concern.

Jack: If you really want to deal with your family, you might want to reconsider.

Victor: Why is that?

Jack: Well, you may not care about those two women, but your nephews certainly do. Xander’s gone to great lengths to protect gwen, and justin was about to marry bonnie. How do you think he’s gonna feel when he finds out that you could have intervened on bonnie’s behalf and chose not to? Do you think he’ll ever want to hear from you again? Do you think he’ll ever forgive you? And I know you’ve had a very rocky relationship with xander, but you obviously still care about him. Otherwise, you wouldn’t be helping him. And he cares about gwen, very much.

Victor: He’ll get over it.

Jack: I don’t think so. He sees this as an all-or-nothing situation. Same as justin. They all get out or they all stay in.

Victor: That’s insane.

Jack: No, victor, that’s love. Let me tell you, the only way that justin and xander will get on board with your plan is if it includes gwen and bonnie. If it doesn’t, you might as well forget the whole thing.

Gwen: So what is the plan?

Xander: Apparently, my uncle vic made a deal with the da to get the charges against us dropped. If it works out, we’ll both get off scot-free. But for now, we just have to sit tight.

Gwen: Well, I can understand why victor would want to get the charges dropped against you and justin, ’cause you’re family. He doesn’t know me, and he despises bonnie.

Xander: Don’t overthink it, darling. Just be grateful that we might be getting out of here.

Gwen: Doesn’t really seem like trask, either. Why would she let four people she has dead to rights off the hook?

Xander: Uncle victor must have offered her something huge. Justin and I talked about it, but we couldn’t figure out what. I should mention, speaking of justin, that I kind of blurted out something stupid when I talked to him.

Gwen: Something stupid?

Xander: I might have told him that you were never a sex worker.

Gwen: What?

Xander: I didn’t mean to. It’s just, he made a comment about you being tough enough to handle prison because of your past experience in that particular profession, and I just said it without thinking.

Gwen: Xander, if he doesn’t think that I was a sex worker, then what-what is it that he thinks that snyder was holding over me?

Xander: He doesn’t know. And I told him that it’s just better for everyone if we keep up the cover story. Trust me, he has no idea that you lied to your father and everyone else about the timing of your miscarriage.

Gwen: Thank god. Because xander, my father would never forgive me if he knew that I was letting abigail blame herself, even though she had nothing to do with it.

Xander: You don’t have to worry about that. I promise you. Justin’s totally in the dark. You and I are the only two people that know the truth.

[Door creaks open]

Ej: Are you insinuating I’m still carrying a torch for samantha?

Nicole: It’s not a crime to still have feelings for your wife, to admit it. Look, when eric and I broke up, I didn’t want to take off my ring. It felt so final, that it would just really be over, and I was so scared to say goodbye.

Ej: I said goodbye and good riddance to samantha the moment I threw her out of this house. Believe me, I am more than ready to take off this bloody ring.

Nicole: I know how difficult it is.

Ej: You’re right. Because the damn thing’s stuck. Yes, I realize the irony.

Nicole: Okay. Well, let me–let me help you. Fingers are still greasy from the pizza.

[Both laugh]

[Heartfelt music]

Philip: That might have been even better than the chicken.

Chloe: Might have been?

Philip: No, it totally was. I think I want seconds.

Chloe: Oh.

Philip: Is that okay with you? Any interest in getting horizontal?

Chloe: Mm, I would, but can I take a rain check, please?

Philip: Okay, yeah.

Chloe: Yeah, I’m just, I’m really tired. I didn’t get a lot of sleep last night.

[Tense music]

Brady: I can’T. Can’t do it, kristen.

Kristen: You’re just gonna– you’re gonna let him drag me away?

Brady: You were going to kidnap my daughter.

Kristen: Our–our daughter. And I wasn’t going to kidnap her. She’s my child, too, and I just wanted to spend a little time with her, brady, that’s all.

Brady: You are–you are– you are running from the law. Did you give one thought as to what would happen if you got caught? How much that would traumatize that little girl in there? How much do you want to put her through, huh?

Kristen: I’m sorry.

Brady: Oh, you’re sorry? I’m sorry too. I’m sorry more than you can imagine. I’m also the guy that has to go in there and try to explain this to her.

Kristen: You know what, just let me stay, and then we can talk to her together, please.

Brady: Oh my god, it’s out of the question.

Kristen: So that’s it. You’re not gonna help me.

Brady: I’m sorry, after what you pulled tonight, I can’t believe you have the audacity to even ask me that.

Kristen: Is this about chloe?

Brady: Oh my god, chloe? What are you talking about?

Kristen: Well, I–I heard about your little trip to the pumpkin patch. I mean, is that why you want to get rid of me, because rachel will have a new mommy?

Brady: Oh, kristen, I have no idea what the hell you’re talking about.

Kristen: That whore has been moving in on my family for months!

Brady: Shut up! She’s is sleeping. Keep your voice down.

Kristen: I am her mother. You cannot replace me, brady.

Brady: All right, steve.

Kristen: You can’t replace me!

Brady: Get her out.

Kristen: I’m her mother.

Brady: Get her out!

Kristen: I am her mother!

Kristen: Don’t!

Steve: Okay, okay.

Kristen: Do you hear me?

Steve: Okay.

Kristen: Brady, I’m her mother.

Victor: You have a law degree that I don’t know about?

Jack: No.

Victor: Well, that’s too bad. You’d have made a hell of an attorney.

Jack: Does that mean you’ll help gwen and bonnie?

Victor: Not that good.

Jack: Oh, victor. You really need to think this through.

Victor: And you need to scram so I can eat in peace.

Jack: It’d be so easy for you, victor. One phone call to the da.

Victor: You want to get the charges against your daughter dropped, make your own deal.

Jack: What would it cost me?

Victor: Cost you?

Jack: I assume you had to pay trask off.

Victor: You see, that’s the beauty of this whole thing. I don’t have to pay her a damn dime.

Melinda: Time’s up.

Xander: You said we had 30 minutes!

Melinda: Oh, did I? I meant 15. You may have rights, but I’m not a pushover.

[Phone rings] I have to take this. An officer will accompany you back to your cells. Here we are again.

Nicole: Okay.

[Both chuckle] Got it.

Ej: Well done. Thank you.

Nicole: Ah, uh, yeah. Well, now that that’s done, I-I should be going, and–

Ej: So soon?

Nicole: Yes, I’m–I’m gonna relieve the sitter. I like to tuck holly in bed when I can, so. Thank you for the pizza and understanding about the phone.

Ej: I may have resorted to some less-than-honorable tactics from time to time myself. So it would be hypocritical of me to hold it against you. Now, as, um, a show that everything is okay, can we at least kiss and make up?

[Inquisitive music]

Nicole: Yeah, um. I should–thank you. Uh, good night.

Ej: Goodnight.

Nicole: Yes.

Chloe: Mm, so we’ll get together another night, okay? Maybe another fried chicken dinner?

Philip: Sure. Like you said, you’re tired.

Chloe: Mm.

Philip: Talk tomorrow?

Chloe: Definitely. Good night.

Philip: Sleep well.

[Pensive music]

Brady: Hey, chlo, listen, it’s me. I wanted to give you a heads up. Lucas just left. Apparently he and philip saw me carrying your bags into the salem inn last night. Philip has assumed the worst, and he thinks that we spent the night together. I’m so sorry, honey. Mommy had to go away again. But I don’t want you to worry, because I’m here for you. I will always be here for you.

Xander: “You have rights, but I’m not a pushover.” I mean, we might be her prisoners, but she doesn’t have to play mind games.

Gwen: Xander, how cares if she cut our visit short?

Xander: I do! I haven’t seen you in days!

Gwen: But what if that was just a huge mistake, us talking like this out in the open? What if she heard?

Xander: Heard what?

Gwen: You assuring me that we are the only ones who know what snyder was blackmailing me with.

Xander: No, she couldn’t have. We heard her open the door. I said all that before she came in. Look, we’re already in enough trouble. We don’t have to invent more. Before you know it, this is all gonna be an unpleasant memory.

Gwen: You really think so?

Xander: Trust me. I know so. Everything’s gonna be okay.

Jack: So that’s how you made this deal. You offered to trade kristen for xander and justin.

Victor: She was all too happy to accept. Considering the fact that kristen killed her daughter. Wasn’t haley dating your son?

Jack: Yes. Jj was in love with her.

Victor: Well, then you should be happy about this too, deveraux. Win for both of us. And a nice payday for your brother.

Jack: Steve?

Victor: I put him on the case. In fact, he should be delivering the goods any minute now.

Melinda: Mr. Johnson, I was very pleased to get your call. I assume you have kristen dimera in your custody?

Steve: I do.

Melinda: Wonderful. If you’ll hand her over to me, I’ll get the ball rolling in dismissing the charges against the two kiriakises.

Steve: Well, I’m afraid I can’t do that just yet.

Melinda: I’m sorry?

Steve: If you want kristen, you’re gonna have to drop the charges against bonnie and gwen too.

Melinda: That wasn’t a part of the deal.

Steve: It is now.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Deacon: You want me to help you ruin my daughter’s marriage. All right. I need a drink.

Sheila: No, no. What you need to do is get on board with my plan.

Deacon: Your plan is bonkers, lady. It’s not gonna work.

Sheila: Oh, again with the negativity. Are you ever positive?

Deacon: I’m positive this isn’t gonna work.

Sheila: Look, the forresters, they wanna make us go away, right? But that kiss between us that hope and finn saw, that is gonna get everyone talking.

Finn: Steffy just texted me that she and liam are gonna be here any minute. How do you wanna handle this?

Hope: Uh, well, um, I think we pretty much agree that we need to tell them what we saw.

Finn: Even though we know it’s not gonna do down well? They have been very clear about you and me having nothing to do with your father and my birth mother. Wait until they hear the latest.

Steffy: When who hears the latest? About what?

Liam: Yeah. What’s going on?

Shauna: It’s gonna happen.

Quinn: It almost did last night. Eric came home. He was definitely in the mood. I mean, I thought his problem wasn’t gonna be a problem anymore, that we were gonna finally make love. But, unfortunately– I mean, it’s just–it’s-it’s so frustrating for both of us. Eric has the desire. He just– he just isn’t able to.

Donna: You went home to quinn and-and nothing happened?

Eric: No. I was so hoping that last night would be– that I could finally be the husband that I haven’t been able to be to quinn for so many months.

Donna: Maybe you’re putting too much pressure on yourself, eric. Maybe quinn’s putting too much pressure on you.

Eric: No, no, no. Quinn’s been completely loving and supportive to me. She has, the whole time. And still I keep letting her down. She has to wonder why I was so excited about– about last night when I came to her, but I couldn’t– I couldn’t tell her– I couldn’t tell her what happened in this office before I went home between the two of us– that it happened with you… and only with you.

Quinn: At least the desire is there. He’s not giving up.

Shauna: But you want it more.

Quinn: Of course I want it more. We both want more. I mean, I wanna feel that kind of passion and intimacy with my husband again. But you gotta admit, this was a big step.

Shauna: Absolutely. I do wonder, though, what changed in eric for him to think he can make love to you?

Donna: Eric, you know how I feel about quinn, but I am genuinely sorry that things didn’t go the way you had hoped.

Eric: Thank you. Donna, last night after– after what should have happened between quinn and me did not happen, I– I just laid down in bed and I-I thought over and over the same thing in my mind. I couldn’t stop thinking about what happened here yesterday… between you and me.

Deacon: Okay, uh, I get that you’ve put a lot of thought into creating this plan that somehow people think that we’re in love and it’s gonna magically transform hope and finn into a couple. But, sheila, it ain’T.

Sheila: There you go again with the negativity. You are such a loser.

Deacon: What you don’t like is when people call you on your crazy schemes and tell you that they’re doomed to fail.

Sheila: Fine. You go ahead and doubt me, but I always get what I want eventually.

Deacon: You as my girlfriend?

Sheila: With all the fringe benefits.

Deacon: You can’t– you can’t be serious.

Sheila: You’ve been locked away a long time, deacon, without any kind of female companionship. Wouldn’t you like to have your way with me? Or better yet… maybe I’ll have my way with you. Pshooo.


Finn: We were just talking about lunch yesterday at il giardino’S.

Liam: Oh, yeah. Forgot to ask how that went.

Steffy: Yeah. How’s the new menu? It’s not too, like, experimental? I hate when they do that.

Finn: Experimental. No. Um, but we…did see something out of the ordinary.

Steffy: What?

Hope: Sheila.

Steffy: What?

Finn: And deacon.

Steffy: You didn’t speak to them, did you?

Hope: We had to.

Liam: Whoa.

Finn: Just hear us out, okay? Wait until you hear what we’ve learned.

The best kept skincare secret?

Quinn: [Sighs] I want us to be like this again. Happy. Smiling. Eric feeling like his old self.

Shauna: Sounds like he almost was.

Quinn: Eric really believed that we were gonna make love last night. And when it didn’t happen, he was– well, you could see how disappointed he was.

Shauna: I imagine you reassured him.

Quinn: I held him in my arms, and I said the same thing I say to him every time. “I love you. Stop putting so much pressure on yourself.”

Shauna: Easier said than done. I’m still curious, though. If– if eric really felt that way, what changed? What happened to make him feel like he could kickstart his love life with his wife again?

Donna: Did I ever tell you I could see the future?

Eric: No.

Donna: What? You seem skeptical.

Eric: Yeah. ‘Cause in all the time we were married, you never mentioned this to me.

Donna: Yeah. Well, you know, a girl has to have some secrets, right?

Eric: Well, I assume you’re bringing this up because, um–

Donna: Because my crystal ball tells me that it won’t be long before you and quinn reconnect.

Eric: You really believe that, don’t you?

Donna: Oh, I do. For your sake, not quinn’S.

Eric: Yeah. Yeah. I understand that.

Donna: Even though I’ve never been a fan of quinn’s, I had hoped that she would make you truly happy. That you’d find peace and contentment in your marriage despite quinn’S… very checkered past. And if she really loved you, she would be the wife that you deserveD. To never cause you hurt or a moment’s pain. And she did. She has. And that broke my heart.

[Sighs] I know you took her back, and I can’t say I fully understand why. All that matters right now, eric, is you. You. The man that you are. And I just want joy and happiness for you. And that’s what I will always want for you.

Deacon: You got me. You had your fun flirting. Playtime’s over.

Sheila: [Laughs] Oh, deacon, deacon, deacon. You really have no idea what I’m capable of.

Deacon: Believe me when I tell you this. I hope I never find out. Look, I’m still not understanding what this supposed romance of ours has to do with getting your son and my daughter together.

Sheila: Well, then you need to pay better attention. Because when hope and finn announce this little scandalous news, people are gonna be very, very upset, especially steffy and liam. And I am counting on our children to defend us.

Deacon: And why would they do that?

Sheila: Because despite their doubts about us, we’re their parents, and we’ve been absent from their lives for so long. They-they want to trust us. They-they want to believe we’re redeemable. And sooner or later, that’s gonna cause tension in their marriages. But that’s gonna clear a way for us to be in all of their lives.

Liam: Okay, can we– let’s just back it up a second. Were deacon and sheila there together?

Finn: Sharing a table.

Steffy: How did that happen?

Hope: Look, the point is we saw them, and, uh–

Steffy: What, you felt compelled to speak to them?

Finn: Steffy, just– hold on a second. Hope and I both know how you and liam feel. And under normal circumstances, we would’ve just left. But they weren’t just together. They were… together together.

Liam: Yeah, I don’t know– what does that mean?

Steffy: You’re not making any sense.

Hope: Look, my dad, deacon, and finn’s birth mother, sheila, are involved.

Finn: Romantically involved.

Liam: What?

Steffy: What?

Hope: I mean, we didn’t believe it either, but then we saw them kissing.

Steffy: Kissing?

Finn: Yeah.

Steffy: Are you serious?

Finn: Yeah. We were as shocked as you guys are.

Hope: And I’m sorry, but I-I couldn’t just– after I saw that, I just had to go over and confront them.

Liam: Oh, my god. Ju–would–did–okay. Okay. Okay. What did they say?

Hope: Well, uh, sheila said that, uh, she and my dad are in love.

Is now a good time

for a flare-up?

Sheila: Ian s tt you’re a bit dubious. So, how do you think we should handle this? Are you into fire and fury something a little more subtle?Apheanake themt?A: I really don’t knowif you really love your daughter and granddaughter. You say that you want to tothns thopand here I’m givecreon explation and–

Deacon: Reason–reasonable?Ouple?Sheila, that’s nuts. Because I’m willing to bet that the buzz has already started, that our names will be out there, good or bad.

Deacon: Oh, it’ll be bad. Yeah, you can bet your dark little heart on that one.

Sheila: Yeah, but at least our names are gonna be in the conversation. We’ll be relevant. Not on the sidelines like we are right now.

Steffy: In love?

Hope: That’s what they said.

Liam: Deacon and sheila?

Finn: I know it sounds a little, but–

Liam: [Stammers]

Steffy: You’re not buying it, are you?

Liam: I certainly hope they’re not buying it, guys. Obviously this is a con.

Steffy: Yeah, this is sheila and deacon we’re talking about. This is some sort of sick game.

Hope: I understand your skepticism, and I have it too–

Liam: You under–this– hope, skepticism doesn’t begin to cover it. They’re up to something, okay? And it’s not good.

Steffy: It never is when it comes to sheila and deacon. I hope you see that.

Liam: Please tell us you see that.

Eric: You’re a breath of fresh air.

Donna: [Chuckles]

Eric: Exactly what I need these days.

Donna: Well, I’m not going anywhere. I’m right where I want to be.

Eric: Yeah? Right out there at the reception desk? Sharing that desk with pam?

Donna: Pammy and i have become…friends.

Eric:. Uh-huh.

Donna: Sort of, you know. Plus we have one thing in common. We both want to protect you.

Eric: You and pam.

Donna: Mm-hmm.

Eric: Both believe that I need protection from quinn.

Donna: It’s your life. I am not gonna harp on this. Your decision to do whatever you want.

Eric: I appreciate that. I also appreciate your candor, and your, uh… your smiles and your humor. All of it.

Donna: Really?

Eric: Yeah.

Donna: Ooh!

Eric: And your poise.

Donna: [Laughing] I’m so clumsy. I–I always will be. I’m–I’m sorry.

Eric: You dutifully man that reception desk out there. And you know that I’m married to a woman of whom you do not approve, and you say that you, uh… that you’re still in love with me.

Donna: Just like I’ll always be clumsy, I’ll always love my honey bear.

[Both chuckle]

Brushing only reaches

25% of your mouth.

Eric: Let me ask you something. Ridge, brooke, and katie all believe that, uh… I stay with quinn because I don’t really want to be alone. And… sometimes I think maybe that is the case. What do you think?

Donna: Eric… you will never be alone. So many people love you and– and care for you. Me most of all. We’ll always be here for you, no matter what.

Eric: Come here.

Liam: [Laughs] Okay, okay. How do sheila and deacon even know each other?

Steffy: Let me guess. They randomly bumped into each other on the day deacon was released from prison and they just… fell madly in love? Is that what they’re trying to make you believe?

Hope: Sheila actually started writing my dad letters when he was in prison.

Liam: Oh. Okay, yeah. No, that–that makes perfect sense. I’m sure deacon needed another pen pal besides his own daughter while he was behind bars and he just randomly chose sheila, of all people. Come on, guys!

Steffy: I know! Why didn’t you call them out?

Finn: We did. We questioned their relationship. We asked them the same questions you’re asking us.

Hope: Yes. I mean, we’re not completely naive, and you two, sorry, you weren’t there, and as unlikely as it may be, sheila and deacon, they seemed pretty sincere.

Finn: They seemed in… in love. I mean, I don’t know, even before we went over there.

Steffy: Oh, please. Oh, my god. I am not hearing this. Hope, finn, you cannot fall for this. This is ridiculous.

Finn: [Sighs]

Liam: She’s right. Just–just for our sake, for the family’s sake, whatever sheila and deacon are up to, just stay away. That’s it. Stay away.

Sheila: Take a look at this. I photoshopped it. One big, happy family.

Deacon: When did you do this?

Sheila: Last night. I couldn’t sleep. I was so… excited, you know.

[Whispers] About the family.

Deacon: Sheila…

Sheila: Honey, I know, I know what you’re gonna say. I–I might be getting ahead of myself and maybe I am, but this is going to happen. Finn and hope, hayes and beth, they’re our family, and no one’s gonna deny us that. I mean, forresters can try to vilify us and–and try to make hope and finn hate us, but we’re not going to let that happen. Our children, our grandchildren, our family… this is gonna happen. I’m gonna make that happen. Nothing and no one will stand in my way.

Young & The Restless Transcript

Y&R logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

With my boyfriend. And now it’s back to regular life. And I actually do have some errands that I need to run before I knock out. I think I will add one of my favorite pastries to my caffeine.

Sharon: Oh, you know what? My pastry delivery is late this morning, so it’s slim pickings.

Elena: Oh, no. I guess I will have to figure out a way to carry on.

Noah: Dig deep. Find that strength.

Elena: [ Chuckles ] I will. I will figure out my breakfast plan. It was good seeing you both. I’ll talk to you later.

Sharon: I promise I will have a pastry with your name on it tomorrow.

Elena: Oh, thank you.

Noah: I’m assuming she’s a regular?

Sharon: Yeah. She lives here. I mean literally lives here, up in the apartment. She used to be lola’s roommate before lola left for miami.

Noah: Huh. I — I guess I just assumed that she lived with nate. But I get couples wanting to keep separate places. Some people need that distance.

Sharon: Is that just a general observation, or are you referring to what happened in london?

Noah: It was just a thought, mom. Alright? Don’t worry.

Sharon: The way you keep trying to avoid the subject makes me think otherwise. So, how worried should I be?

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: So, you have time for coffee with jack, but you don’t have time for us to talk things out. And tonight’s winning numbers are 18,

Phyllis: Okay.

[ Sighs ] Listen. I was just a little frustrated and angry to deal with you earlier, and I just thought that jack could bring me down a notch. That’s all.

[ Sighs ]

Nick: Yeah. You needed to see jack because, uh, you were angry about my text.

Phyllis: Okay, it wasn’t just the text. It was the argument that we had yesterday. That’s what it was about. And I went to all this trouble to get a bunch of stuff and create, like, a romantic dinner, and, you know — which is why i just drank a bunch of champagne in my room alone.

[ Sighs ]

Nick: But I canceled, so in a way, it is about the text.

Phyllis: Okay, it’s about the text. It’s about — and I know that overindulging in my room was a mistake. I know that.

Nick: I’m not judging.

Phyllis: Really? That’s shocking because you usually would. That’s why I felt the need to criticize myself before you had a chance to.

Nick: I’m sorry if I made you feel like that. That was not my intention.

Phyllis: Okay. I believe you. Listen, I’m just, um — I’m hurt and angry and… I don’t know what’s going on with us. We are so out of sync.

Nick: Well, I do know us not talking to each other is just making the problem worse.

Phyllis: Okay, well, I just needed to take a second. I needed some space before I say the wrong thing. You know what I’m saying. You understand that, right?

Nick: Yes. I get it. I think both of us have let our emotions get the better of us, which hasn’t helped matters. So, let me just say this, and then I’ll take off. You got nothing to be scared of.

Phyllis: I’m a bigger mess than I was before. Can we get out of here, please?

Jack: You don’t have to ask a second time.

Noah: You are determined to get this story out of me, aren’t you?

Sharon: Well, not if you really don’t want to talk about it. But you already sort of admitted between the lines that there was a problem back in london. Your dad and I just want to know what’s going on. You never complained of being unhappy, and this sudden decision to come back to genoa city is a little jarring. Though we’re thrilled to have you here as long as you want stay.

Noah: Okay. I — I was in a relationship. It was kind of a serious one — for me, at least. And…I just — I ended up getting my heart broken.

Sharon: I’m sorry.

Noah: Yeah. Me too. I promise everything’s gonna be okay. I hope you understand why I’d like to just leave at that and not go on a deep dive into my love life with my mom.

Sharon: I won’t pry about that anymore.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Sharon: But can I ask, um — is your relationship ending the only reason why you wanted to leave england?

Noah: No. I was serious when I said I was feeling like I was stuck in a rut, and both professionally and artistically, I — I just needed a change, and I think coming home was the right move.

Sharon: I’m just glad you’re here.

Nate: I’m more than willing to look into this other treatment and share my opinion. But I still think your oncologist is probably the best source for advice about potential next steps.

Victoria: Well, we’re not actually happy with the doctor. He’s not really keeping an open mind about other options, and he’s not listening to ashland’s needs and his concerns.

Ashland: Yeah, nate, I don’t want to waste any more of my time and energy trying to convince this man to listen to me.

Nate: Okay. I understand. Sometimes a doctor isn’t a good fit for a patient. And it’s always good to get a second and perhaps third opinion.

Ashland: I appreciate that, nate. And I deeply appreciate your support and friendship, as well.

Nate: Always happy to help. Well, go ahead and e-mail the information about the peruvian treatment, and I will get back to you.

Victoria: Will do.

Ashland: And, nate —

Nate: I know. I know. As soon as possible.

Victoria: We’re trying to remain realistic about this, but we’re hoping that you’ll have some good news for us.

Nate: Me too.

[ Sighs ] I just heard something amazing!

Phyllis: Mmm. The fall air. I love it. I love the company, too.

Jack: I’m happy to provide it.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] I’m sorry. I keep on dumping all of my stuff on you. It must be déj vu for you.

Jack: No, it doesn’t feel like that at all, and I don’t want you feeling bad for turning to a friend, no matter what the problem is. So, what happened last night?

Phyllis: After I spoke to you, I went back to the place, and I set everything up, you know, very romantic, the whole shebang, right? And I got a text from nick saying that he had to stay home with christian. And I get that. Christian comes first. I mean, but I just wonder if it was even true.

Jack: Well, do you really think he would use his son as an excuse not to talk to you?

Phyllis: I don’t know anymore. I don’T. I just know he’s going through a lot of turmoil with his family, and that turmoil seems to be bringing out issues in our relationship.

Jack: Can you articulate those issues — not to me — to nick and to yourself and, more importantly, to each other?

Phyllis: No. I don’t even know what they are. Honestly. I’m so irritated. And I know that nick was as frustrated with me as I was with him yesterday. But then he shows up this morning like, “no problem. Let’s talk. It was just a bump in the road.” But it’s not a bump in the road. We’re not okay. And — and I just had to get out of there.

Jack: Okay, but if nick is talking like things will be okay…

Phyllis: I’m not okay. I’m not. I don’t live in denial. You know that. I don’t know what’s happening with us, but none of it is alright.

Sharon: Well, if you’re at loose ends, you could always work here. And I’ve heard that deep-cleaning an espresso machine is a great way to get out of an artistic rut.

Noah: Why do I feel like I’m being conned?

[ Both laugh ]

Nick: It’s nice to see you two having fun.

Noah: You okay?

Nick: Yeah. Why?

Noah: Doesn’t seem like it. Have things gotten worse between you and victoria?

Nick: [ Sighs ] I’ve not seen vick since she and ashland got home from tuscany.

Sharon: Well, I spoke to billY. Now I understand ashland has, a much darker past than I had realized.

Nick: I don’t want to get into the details, but there’s been a line drawn in the sand in this family, and dad, vick, and adam are one side, and I am firmly on the other. And mom, as usual, is somewhere in the middle, trying to bridge the gap.

Sharon: Really? That’s a shame. Things seemed to be going so well between you and your family.

Noah: Well, if there’s anything I can do to help, I will. And I know grandma will, too.

Sharon: And I’m here for you, too.

Noah: And no doubt phyllis has got your back.

Nick: Yeah. You would think.

Sharon: What does that mean?

Nick: Phyllis and I are just not in a good place right now.

Noah: Really? It seemed like you guys were all good in italy.

Nick: We spent most of that trip kind of sniping at each other. I don’t know if it was me taking my frustrations out with the family on her, if I was hiding behind my anger for dad and just kind of ignoring the problems that have been ongoing with us, but — I don’t know, man — things just keep getting more tense, and it’s frustrating ’cause every time we talk, it’s like I take one step forward and then six steps back. And…It’s unsettling ’cause, before then, I thought we were really solid.

Noah: Yeah, you know, it’s — it’s a weird feeling when you think everything’s okay… and then suddenly it’s not.

Nick: Hmm. You say that like you know the feeling.

Noah: I experienced something similar recently. I was just telling mom that things haven’t been great for me in the romance department back in london. That’s part of the reason i decided to come back home.

Nick: You running from a break-up?

Noah: Nah, I — I wouldn’t say that. I just — I wanted to be around my familY. It’s nice to be surrounded by the ones who love you the most, especially when you feel like your relationship’s going completely off the rails. Not to say that you and phyllis are completely derailing or anything. It seems like you guys are just hitting some rough waters. I’m sure you’re both strong enough to find your way through.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] You’re awfully quiet.

Sharon: Hmm? Well, what do you expect me to say?

Victoria: I am just so relieved that nate agreed to help us. Although I’m not surprised. You know, it’s really nice having a friend who also happens to be a brilliant doctor.

Ashland: Yes.

Victoria: Ashland. What is it?

Ashland: Nate didn’t seem very enthusiastic about the experimental treatment.

Victoria: Well, how could he be? He doesn’t know much about it. We just — we need to be patient.

Ashland: You know, before i decided to seek treatment, I was at peace with my fate.

Victoria: [ Chuckles ] Yes, I know. It took a lot of persuading on my part to get you to change your mind about fighting this disease.

Ashland: And I’m so glad that I did. And now that we’re married, i hate the idea of giving up anD…not being with you. What if this is a battle I can’t win? Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Elena: Hey, you.

Nate: Hey. How you doing? And how are you still upright? I figured you would have crawled in bed by now.

Elena: Yeah, that’s next on my agenda. But I was starving. Hence, the detour. I wish I’d know you were coming here. I could have joined you.

Elena: I knew you were busy. I got your message that you were gonna be seeing victoria and ashland. How are they? Are they still floating on air post-wedding?

Nate: Not exactly. Turns out ashland’s protocol isn’t working as well as he and victoria had hoped. So they’re interested in a new treatment, and they want me to take a look into it for them.

Elena: Are you worried about what you might find?

Nate: Yeah. This isn’t a typical medical consult. Ashland’s not even my patient. He’s a friend. I’m personally invested in what happens to victoria and ashland, so I can’t maintain the usual degree of professional distance. And…it would be a lot easier if I could. What if I can’t tell them what they’re hoping to hear?

Ashland: You know, for a while, I was so swept up in all the wedding plans and praying that you would forgive me for my sins and hoping that gaines wouldn’t ruin the day. And I’m so grateful that everything worked out, and i couldn’t be more thrilled that you and I are married.

Victoria: I am, too. And I meant every word of my vows. We’re in this together.

Ashland: Yeah, but after receiving these test results, I… just the harsh reality of the situation is staring me in the face. And none of my power or money or influence can get me out of this, and I’m running out of options. I mean, maybe nothing has worked yet because there’s nothing that will work.

Victoria: No. I refuse to accept that. Look, I know that you’re feeling shaken because of the test results, but you’re not looking and thinking about the statistics here. There are people who — after having received the right treatment, they’ve bought themselves more time. Some of them have even beaten it. That — that could happen.

Ashland: You know, for the first time since I decided to fight this, I’m actually scared because the odds are not in my favor.

Victoria: Well, since when have you ever cared about the odds when you want something? You’ve beaten the odds your entire life. I know you’ve been through some rough times, but it’s only made you stronger. You said you were gonna fight this, so you better damn well fight it.

Ashland: Nobody has ever had as much faith in me as you do.

Victoria: Well, look, I know that you’re gonna have some vulnerable moments. But if you’re weak, then — then let me be strong for both of us. We’ve come this far. I mean, we’ve overcome so much. We can’t give up on our future.

Ashland: [ Breathes deeply ]

Sharon: Every relationship has its issues. You know, rey and I have certainly had ours. But, you know, we’ve worked on them, and we continue to do so. So, that’s just part of any successful relationship.

Nick: Hmm. Well, what do you think about me and phyllis specifically?

Sharon: I think, uh, communication is the key.

Nick: I bet she got that off a bumper sticker, don’t you?

Noah: [ Laughs ]

Sharon: Look, um, I don’t know what you want from me. I — the last time we talked about this, I told you I just want you to be happy but you thought that I was saying you were settling, and i never uttered those words.

Nick: It was unfair of me to jump to that conclusion.

Sharon: Okay, well, I want to admit that I’m a little biased when it comes to you and phyllis, so I’m probably not the best person to ask.

Nick: Yeah. Sorry to put you in this awkward position. I’m just dealing with a lot right now. Kind of been bottling it up inside, and the person I always talk to about things like that is victoria. And that door is currently closed. You know, I had the best intentions when it came to her. And she doesn’t understand why i did it or where I was coming from. She doesn’t appreciate it, and now there’s this giant wall between us, just like there is between me and phyllis. Really starting to wonder if I’m the problem.

[ Exhales sharply ]

Phyllis: Nick is going through so much with his family. You know, I can’t win. He doesn’t want to hear the truth.

Jack: Well, maybe — just maybe — your truth isn’t the same as nick’s truth.

Phyllis: What does that mean?

Jack: Okay, for example — and I’m going back a bit — when things got ugly with your own father, you cut all ties with him. You ran away from your family.

Phyllis: Are you serious right now, bringing up my own father? Really? I-I left the family because my father was a criminal. He was a horrible man. He stole from the elderly to make a profit.

Jack: I understand that. But maybe, deep down inside, you wish nick would make the same decision you’ve made, when you know he won’t, when history has proven he can’T.

Phyllis: Okay, well, our situations are different.

Jack: I get that. But maybe you’re holding nick’s decision against him because he didn’t make the same one you’ve made.

Phyllis: Okay. Um, are you saying that I’m responsible for this? Yawns “okay okay, I’m up, I’m up!”

Elena: I love how much you care about the people in your life, but whatever happens to ashland isn’t on you. They asked you to help them because they knew that you could give it to them straight, as a friend. They’re not expecting you to perform any miracles.

Nate: I wish I had the power to save ashland.

Elena: All you have to do is read the studies on the protocols and give them the facts. That way, they can make an informed decision. I think you can do that without any regrets or guilt.

Nate: That’s why I’m grateful to be with someone who gets it.

Elena: Yes. I speak doctor.

[ Both laugh ]

[ Yawns ] Mnh. Excuse me. Sorry. This girl hasn’t slept in a long time.

Nate: Mm.

Elena: But that didn’t have anything to do with you or what we were talking about. I didn’t mean to ruin the moment.

Nate: You didn’T. But I’m worried you’re about to fall asleep on this couch.

Elena: [ Chuckles ]

Nate: How about I take you home and tuck you in?

Elena: Yes. I would love that. Thank you.

Ashland: Okay, message received. When victoria newman orders you to fight, you fight.

Victoria: Very good. Other.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] There’s really no reason for any negativity when we have so much reason to have hope.

Victoria: Yeah. That’s right. I believe in the power of hope. A positive mental outlook. I know it’s probably not gonna cure the cancer, but you never know how your attitude might change things.

Ashland: Well…

Victoria: It’s better than the alternative, you know?

Ashland: If nate thinks that this new treatment and the protocol is worthwhile, then, uh, it gives us another reason to be optimistic.

Victoria: Yes.

Ashland: But that also means that if I do decide on this treatment, I might have to jump right into it, which means your plans for a private island getaway would fly right out the window.

Victoria: Well, if they do, they do. I’m not gonna worry about that right now.

Ashland: You’re being very practical, but you’re also a new bride who deserves a beautiful honeymoon. And I was really looking forward to shutting out the world and just being newlyweds for a while.

Victoria: Well…that is a lovely thought, but I really don’t care about the honeymoon. I just want you to get better. And we are not gonna let anything stand in the way of that.

Jack: I am not laying the blame at your feet. Look, there are complicated dynamics involved where you and nick are concerned. Anytime you bring up the newman family drama, it’s bound to stir up…intense emotions in both of you. I’m sure nick would agree that he hasn’t exactly been his best in this situation.

Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Mm-hmm. And?

Jack: And…in the many years I have known you, I have noticed that when things aren’t going the way you want them to be on a personal front, when your back is up, when you are insecure about your ability to salvage the situation, you tend to look for an exit strategy.

Phyllis: Are you saying that I blow up my relationships instead of seeing if they can work out? Are you saying that I’m my own worst enemy?

Jack: I would hate to see you fall victim to a self-fulfilling prophecy. Phyllis, you and nick have been through so much. And yet you are perpetually drawn back together. There’s a reason for that.

Phyllis: Yeah. And there’s a reason why things don’t work out.

Noah: It seems like the situation with victoria is filled with emotional land mines, but there is no way that you are single-handedly responsible for what’s going on. I’m sure you two can work it out ’cause at the end of the day, you’re brother and sister. We’re all family until we die.

Nick: A blessing and a curse.

Noah: We didn’t ask to be born newmans, but it’s what we are.

Nick: You’re damn right we are.

Noah: And as for phyllis, i think you should try to get down to the root of the problem and fix things as soon as you can, you know, before it gets worse.

Nick: When did this kid get so smart?

Sharon: Well, he takes after me.

Nick: [ Chuckles ]

Noah: It’s just my two cents.

Nick: I, uh — I appreciate it. Um, it’s not quite as simple as you make it sound. You know, phyllis and I have got a very long, rocky past. We’ve hurt each other a lot. I can’t ignore the fact that history could repeat itself.

Noah: It will if you allow those thoughts to take over. Don’t let it be a self-fulfilling prophecy. You can either turn yourself into a victim, or you can fight for what you want, no matter how hard it is. It’s up to you.

Nick: Man, you got to take it easy on your old man.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Nick: Oh, I hear you, son. Yeah, I believe in what phyllis and I have. Even though I can feel her pulling away, I can’t let that get in my head. I got to make her understand what we have is worth fighting for. And you know what? I’m gonna start right now. See you guys later.

Sharon: See you.

Do I need to pretreat my


Nate: [ Breathes deeply ]

[ Sighs ]

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Ashland: Excuse me. It’s nate. Hey, buddy. I’m here with victoria, and I’m gonna put you on speakerphone, okay?

Victoria: Hey, nate. Um, so, what is your take on the information we sent you?

Nate: There has been some promising research about the experimental treatment you found. But I would say it’s still a last resort. Chances of improvement remain slim. I understand this is not what you want to hear.

Ashland: [ Sighs ] Yeah, well, we know it’s a long shot, but, uh, I’m willing to do or try anything.

Sharon: You know, I was really impressed with you earlier. That advice you gave your dad — it was spot on.

Noah: For real?

Sharon: Yeah. I’m all for taking control of your life and finding your happiness.

Noah: Mom, I know you have to walk a fine line when you’re talking to dad about these things. But you know you can be honest with me, right? What do you really think about him and phyllis?

Sharon: I want what’s best for your father. I mean that.

Noah: And?

Sharon: And I will never believe that phyllis is what’s best for him.

Noah: What? You — you don’t think they can make it in the long run, even after all they’ve been through?

Sharon: [ Breathes deeply ] I take no pleasure in saying this, but I think that relationship is ready to fall off a cliff. It’s only a question of when.

Noah: [ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ]

Nick: [ Sighs ]

it was a strategy, and it didn’t last. This time, I want it to be real, and I want it to last forever. I want it to be forever, too. So is that a “yes”? Can you — can you please stand up? I-I can’t think with you kneeling. Uh, yeah. Well, if you have to think, you’re — you’re, uh, probably trying to find the words to say…”no.” I’m trying to find the words to say, “not yet.” Something’s upsetting you. I’m guessing it was your visit with nikolas. Yeah, it was a real revelation. What did he say to you? Nikolas said I could go free. What did this guy want to know? Well, he claimed that he was “touring” port charles, visiting places of interest, and he asked about the savoy. And of course, you know, I-I gave it a glowing review.

[ Chuckles ] But as the conversation went on, it became less and less about the club and more about you. So it struck me that this man fits the general description of tj’s patient that disappeared. So the same guy approached both you and tj,

[Sighs heavily] Asking questions about me. Sorry, I…

[ Laughs ] I know you ordered espresso, but I’m telling people that the machine is broken. ‘Cause…? Because I already scalded myself once, and I’m not going to risk further injury.

[ Bell dings ] I had no idea how hard it is to pull espresso shots, by the way.

I want you to be close at hand

I want you to understand

[ Dramatic music plays ] Do you want a table? Or are you just here to gloat? Carly: Well, that was fast. Extradited last night, back in port charles this morning. No doubt you’re disappointed. I’m outraged. I’m outraged that you could steal 9 months of sonny’s life, you could steal him from his children and his family, and post bail and show up here like nothing happened. Kind of like you. Acting like nothing happened after you watched my daughter die.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Ringing stops ] Hello. Prison operator:

You have a collect call

from flatland federal prison

inmate cyrus renault.

Will you accept

the charges? Yeah, I accept. Cyrus: Sonny!

So good

to hear your voice. I hope I’m not too late to welcome you back from the dead. You know what? It was — it was a — a bonus to find you gone. Now you call me collect. What do you want?

These are for you. Thank you. And right here. Okay, enjoy, guys. Mm. Either find a table or leave — I’ve got some work to do, guys. Spencer, you — you’re working here? Don’t act like it’s a surprise, father. I had no idea. Now you know. Kevin is only gonna let me and esme stay with him so long as I have a paying job, and this is it until I find something better. Hey, nikolas, let’s sit down, okay? And, spencer, we’ll start with some coffee, please.

You don’t need to compensate

don’t need to go out of your way

don’t need to leave

[ Dishes clatter ]

Just need to stay classic. Father and ava are here, pretending that they just wandered in. Kelly’s is close by the pier. Maybe they just got off the launch and decided to stop for breakfast. When the staff at wyndemere can make them anything they want? When they can afford the caviar omelette at the metro court? No, I don’t think so. They planned this. At least father seems like he cares a little bit. Ava is just enjoying my humiliation. Then forget her. Just focus on your father. Spence, this is the perfect opportunity to start mending fences. I mean, he’s obviously regretting what happened. Just give him a chance to take you back.

But I feel like I’m still learning how to trust you I wonder how spencer will take to the food service industry after being waited on all his life.

I change in your arms, I melt in your touch aw, nikolas, don’t worry so much. It’s a good job. Carrying a couple plates isn’t going to hurt the kid. I’m sure he’ll survive. Oh, so if you’re not worried about spencer, then this brooding silence must be about alexis. What happened at spring ridge?

I feel like I’m still trying to adjust nikolas says you can go free? Nikolas said a lot of astonishing things. Uh, first things first. How can nikolas get you out of here? Well, he and the governor are friends, and apparently, they’re in the process of arranging a full pardon. Why is

this not the best newsyou’ve heard all year? Why? [ Chuckles ] Because the price of my freedom is just too high. It’s always about nelle with you, isn’t it? Is that really surprising to you? You, who’s so proud to be a mother, who uses it to justify everything that you do? Guess what, carly — I’m also a mother. Nelle was my child. Well, there’s no doubt about that. There’s not much of a physical resemblance, but it’s scary how much the two of you are alike. In her own mind, nelle was always the victim. Murder, extortion, switching her baby — none of that was ever her fault. Somebody else, usually me, was always to blame. You are to blame for letting her die, and you will always be to blame for that. So live with it. Oh, so to pay me back, you basically kidnap sonny? Because in your mind, you’re the victim. “Poor, poor nina. She shouldn’t have been arrested. That’s a vindictive attack.” You’re delusional. And you know what? That could work in your favor. Just plead insanity and be done with it. I love you, michael corinthos. I’m in love with you. Please tell me you know that. Yeah, I do. And I intend to spend the rest of my life with you, for better, for worse, in sickness and in health — all of it. Okay, then, why not make it official? Fine then, l-let’s say our vows. L-let’s sign the documents and make the commitment to being husband and wife. When we marry, I want it to be about us — and wiley. I want it to be about joining our lives and celebrating our love, not smoothing over a disagreement. Say something worth hearing or I’m hanging up the phone. Your rebirth doesn’t seem to have affected your charming personality. I regret i

didn’t seeyour last stand. Too bad the commissioner didn’t shoot to kill. Yeah, I-it must be difficult coming back after such a long time away. Did I hear that your wife and best friend got married? There — there was — there was a tragedy at the wedding. Vincent novak and charlie buscema got blown to bits. Well, that’s very unfortunate. We can talk about it in greater detail when you come to visit me.

When you say the price of freedom is too high, does it have anything to do with hayden? I see you’re way ahead of me. Why don’t you take me through it anyway, so I don’t make assumptions or jump to wrong conclusions? I straight-out asked nikolas if he had hayden shot. He evaded it, which was all the answer that I needed. It’s difficult to see my aunt in prison. Alexis always had a neurotic streak, but…

[Breathes deeply] She was…smart, so articulate. She’s a talented lawyer, but also a warm and caring aunt… …a voice of sanity in my insane family. Yeah. Well, that’s why you were going to talk to the governor about a pardon, right? Well, unfortunately, it may not work out. You know the conditions — for father to take me back, I have to accept his marriage to ava. I have to accept that woman as my stepmother. He’s already put her in control of my trust fund. I’ll have to grovel to her for every dime that I want to spend. I’m not going to do that, esme. Then — then you’re letting her win. Brick by brick, ava’s building a wall between you and your father. I mean, that’s what she wants, spence. I mean, ava doesn’t want you talking to your father, making him see reason. God forbid your father realizes that she’s just a gold digger, after all.

[ Chuckles ] She’s more in love with his money and his last name than she’ll ever be with him. Yeah, he used to know that. He called me — he came to see me at school, said that we could work together to get him free of ava. Now she’s turned him against me. She’s latched on to him, and she’s never going to let him go. Spence, it’s obvious that your father doesn’t want this separation. You’ve just got to give him room to change his mind. How? [ Scoffs ] Ava never leaves his side. I might be able to help with that. Ava: I can understand why the governor would be concerned about it — excuse me. I’m so sorry to interrupt. Ava, could I speak to you for a moment outside?

And fool everyone who doesn’t know you I never saw tj’s patient.

[ Sighs ] I can’t be certain if it was the same man. But did you get a bad vibe from him? He was perfectly pleasant. But there was something about him that did seem… just off. I don’t know. I don’t know. Maybe I’m making too big a deal out of this. No, no, no. Trust your instincts. People often get a bad feeling about someone presenting as ordinary and then tries to ultimately harm them. It’d be a mistake to ignore that feeling.

[ Sighs ] Well, in that case, I was walking outside kelly’s, and I thought I heard footsteps behind me. No one was there. And I turned around to keep going, and I walked right into this man. I was startled. He apologized. He had a map of port charles and asked me for directions to the chuck.

[ Breathes sharply ] And I told him that the chuck was closed today. And that’s when he brought up the savoy. See, I mentioned that I knew the owner, and he was all over it. He claimed that he read somewhere that you had never owned a club before. Where would he get that? Exactly. I don’t remember reading that in any promotional materials I read. And I asked him — I asked himabout his interest in you, but he just brushed it off and claimed he was a “people person”…

[ Sighs ] …Liked to talk to anybody. It seemed reasonable enough, so I excused myself and I left. But in retrospect… maybe it wasn’t so innocent. I agree. What are the odds that two men, same age, same description, would approach two very important people in my life, asking questions about me? Why the hell would I visit you? Well, a lot happened while you were away. I can fill in the blanks — details that your wife and mr. Morgan either weren’t privy to or — or chose not to tell you. Pass. Don’t be too hasty. Buscema and novak are gone, their territories are up for grabs — I might have information about who wants to take their place. You know what, cyrus? Enjoy flatland. Make yourself comfortable, ’cause, from what I hear… you’re going to spend the rest of your life there.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cellphone beeps ]

Nikolas is the one who had hayden shot. That’s your belief — he didn’t actually say the words. No, he didn’t actually say the words. I’ve known him his whole life, and it was very clear to me by what he didn’t say that he was the one who tried to have hayden killed. I’m sorry. You’re sorry? What are you sorry for? You’re the one who — who — who spent 6 years locked in a cage for something he did and you didn’T. I’m sorry for what this is costing you…

[ Sighs ] …For the pain I see in your eyes. I just thought he was better than that.

[ Sighs ] And he was. I’m telling you, he was. You know, up — up until just a few years ago, he wa– he was good. He was thoughtful. He was noble and empathetic. And that is all gone now. He is self-serving. He doesn’t even care about his own son. And he uses people. He used — used you. Oh, he can show remorse if you confront him. But it’s just a show. He doesn’t mean it. He’s gone bad, I’m telling you, and he will take no responsibility for anything that he’s done. None.

You open your own doors may I take your order? What are your specials? I don’t remember, and you don’t care, so just order eggs florentine like always. You won’t get many tips with that attitude. I wasn’t counting on one from you, anyway. You know, we still haven’t got our coffee. Right, I’ll get on that. Spencer… what are you doing? Did you not just nag me for coffee? You know that’s not what I mean. Actually, father, I have no idea what you “mean.” I’ve lost any ability that I ever had to read you or understand your motives. You are working at a diner, awaiting trial for criminal charges. This is not the life you were meant to have. Thanks to you and your wife, it is the life that I have now.

Nobody ever asks you why or for… when we saw each other at the courthouse, I was so focused on helping spence, so worried how the hearing would go, that… I didn’t get the chance to properly express

[Voice breaking] How truly sorry I am for my part in what happened to you. “What happened” is that I was stalked and terrorized to the point of filing for divorce and distancing myself from my only surviving child. What spence did was horribly wrong. And instead of helping him, I should have tried to talk him out of it. Why didn’t you? I can’t imagine my life without you, michael. When I tried, even on a temporary basis, it was a disaster. I don’t just love you, I need and depend on you as my best friend, someone I can confide in and trust. And you can always trust me. I know. But I’ve also realized that you don’t always do things for one reason. Remember when shiloh took me to court to try and force me to disclose what happened to my baby? You were so smart about all of that. You blew me away, running through tactics and potential strategies. It was the same way when we were fighting for custody of wiley. It’s — it’s crazy how your mind works, michael. How you can set up the dominoes to fall the way you want. Which is a nice way of saying I’m calculating. No, michael.

[ Breathes sharply ] It’s not a bad thing. It’s amazing. But it shouldn’t be the reason you proposed. Willow.

[ Breathes sharply ] Look, I hate that we argued, and I do want to make it better, but that — that’s not the reason I asked you to marry me. Could this mystery man, if it is the same man, be someone that you investigated when you were a cop? Someone that you put away? If so, why come looking for me now? I’m sorry. Portia? Hi. Welcome back. Thank you, man. How are you? Good. Trina told me that you were home. Yeah, it’s, uh — it’s been a real adjustment. I’m sure. And — and I heard josslyn — well, josslyn told me that she’s doing great in pcu? Yeah, yeah. Her and trina are really embracing the college experience.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, I’m happy for them. Yeah. It’s a great time in their lives. Um, curtis, you got a minute to talk about cyrus renault? I won’t have to use the insanity defense. Well, you’re going to need something because the charges are not going away.

[ Scoffs ] This is laughable coming from you. Oh, yeah, you’re really happy to skate when the handcuffs are on you, carly. You know, hiding behind your high-powered attorney, letting her pretzel the law. But when I post legitimate bail, here you are — you’re outraged and you’re screaming for justice. I don’t have to scream. Justice is coming for you. Oh — yeah, you’re gonna be tried and convicted because there’s no excuse for what you did. I think my attorney can make a damn good argument that I was actually protecting sonny. That his life in port charles was dangerous and destructive, and that sonny was actually better off living in nixon falls.

You have to admit the timing is a little suspect. A little. And maybe our disagreement didn’t cause you to propose, but it might have

contributed to it. Maybe. Because you are — you’re a fixer, michael. Your first instinct will always be to try to make things better, and I love that about you. You came into my life, you — you gave me your support, you shared your son with me, and you didn’t try to fix me, but you made it possible for me to fix myself. And now that we’ve disagreed, you want to “fix” that, too, to make that go away, but you don’t have to. We can disagree and still love each other.

[ Chuckles ] Yeah, if, uh, anyone knows that, it’s me. When spence and i met at school, we just… clicked. At first, it was a surface level — we liked a lot of the same things — you know, skiing, riding, theater. From the beginning, it’s like… we could both sense something deeper. This bond we shared.

[ Water lapping gently ]

[ Seagulls squawking ] I’m not close with my family, so when… …spence told me about the situation with his father, you know, thinking his father died, and when nikolas came back, he got involved with you, how badly that hurt spence — I totally empathized. I was so completely focused on spence that I never stopped to realize that I was only hearing his version. Do you feel that justifies your actions? No, no, o-of course not. I realize now that spence was angry — h-he was lashing out, and I was so focused on helping him that… I never stopped to see you as a person. To think about what you were going through. What i was helping to put you through. All those times, I was following spence’s instructions. And those things that I did… I would give anything to take them back. I know what it means to go too far, spencer, alright? For actions to have unpredictable consequences. Would you just talk to me, father and son, like we used to, and just tell me how things got so out of control? Things got a little tough when you “died,” father, and they didn’t get a whole lot better when you turned up alive, either — in fact, they got worse. I can’t change what I did, but I can fix what’s happening now. I can help you get your life back on track. This again? You’re going to provide guidance to your poor, troubled son — that’s what you want? No, I want you to stop punishing me before you wreck your own life. I should have known that nikolas wasn’t going to tell me the truth. I’m absolutely naive.

[ Sighs ] And all I’ve done is give him a heads-up that we’re on to him. You know, that could work to our advantage. Nikolas spent the past 6 years thinking he was in the clear. Maybe he got confident, let things slide. Now, if he started scrambling, trying to cover his tracks, he could give something away. Nikolas isn’t scrambling. He’s already got a bribe lined up. The pardon you mentioned. Mm-hmm. Yeah, he — he said that if I drop the subject of hayden, that he and his friend the governor would consider a pardon. And then when I didn’t jump at that opportunity, then it became a warning — either I back off or the pardon disappears. There’s only one thing to do. I know. Take the deal. What?! As far as I know, cyrus renault’s ass is rotting away in a federal prison somewhere in the midwest. Flatland. The operator mentioned it when cyrus called me collect. He called — wait a minute. What did he want? Oh, he was trying to dangle, you know, s-some information that he may or may not have. See, that’s how cyrus operates. It’s all mind games with him. Yep. Yep. Now, you guys were there when he finally went down. Anything you can give me on — on what happened that night? I can tell you that cyrus renault is a brutal, dangerous man. He was waiting for me when I got home and forced me to patch him up at gunpoint. And when trina got home, he made it perfectly clear that he didn’t need two hostages and that one of us was expendable. I’m sorry to bring up any bad memories. Curtis, can you and I, uh, maybe have a discussion alone? There’s really no need to shield me — we all survived renault, and he can’t hurt us now. Okay, well, good luck with that defense. I can’t wait to see you get on the stand and tell the judge that you committed identity fraud against sonny for his own good. Well, who even knows if this kind of identity fraud even exists, carly? I mean, this llantano da is trying to invent some sort of new law just to give michael what he wants. Michael doesn’t control the da. Oh, sure he does. And you control michael. You just… you just can’t stand it, can you, carly? That sonny lived 9 months of his life and you know nothing about it. That he was perfectly happy without you — maybe even a little happier — and now you want revenge, and you’re using your own son to get it for you.

Curtis: I didn’t know what he was going to do next. Cyrus was unraveling. He was — he was screaming at laura. He was waving his gun around. That guy was about two seconds from shooting laura, so I dropped my gun, and he shot me instead. Which gave jordan the opening she needed to enter the house and shoot renault. Laura is a friend, very special to me. I want to thank you for saving her life. Glad I could be there. So am I. I appreciate you guys talking to me. It means a lot. You’re not staying for — for a workout? Oh, you know what?

[ Chuckling ] I haven’t boxed in so long. But I got — I got to check on someone. Alright.

[ Sighs ] I thought we heard the last of cyrus renault. I guess we’re not that lucky. Think about wh ere you weresupposed to be, spencer — taking a gap year, touring the world. And you threw all of that away to get back at me. I’m curious — are you happy with the results? What can I say? The amalfi coast is overrated. I want you to stop sabotaging yourself. Why won’t you listen to me? I will. As soon as you listen to me and cut ava out of your life.

She will always keep… I don’t expect you to forgive me… but if there’s ever anything I can do — any way to make amends, I would appreciate the chance. Well, esme, you’re not the first young woman to get wrapped up in a man and do things she regrets, and I’m willing to put what’s happened behind us and start fresh.

[ Chuckling ] Oh, my god! T-that wasn’t — hmm. Thank you so, so much. You’re welcome. It’s my hope that you can be a good influence on spencer, and hopefully, someday, help him accept his new reality. I think he will. Deep down, spence loves his father. He just has to let go of his pride a little. Hmm. That is not so easy.

[ Chuckles ] Okay, well, I’m going to go and have breakfast with my husband. Of course. Really, ava… thank you again. You’re welcome. And, esme… make good use of this fresh start, ’cause one is all you’re going to get. Cross me again, and you will regret it. Did I just hear you right? Do you really want me to take my nephew’s bribe? I know what it means to be locked in a cell every night, to be without agency, to live by other people’s rules. You have a chance to get out of here. Take it. N-no. No. And not even because of my nephew’s agenda, but because I-I don’t deserve a pardon. You’re being harder on yourself than a prosecutor would be. Shawn, unlike you, I actually committed the crime that I’m in here for.

[ Sighs ] I-I-I’m serving my sentence. It’s my responsibility. It’s my debt to society that I need to — pay your debt on the outside. Right? Use your talents to help people. Volunteer at a legal clinic.

[ Sighs ] Do you want me to just ignore that my nephew is an attempted murderer? I mean, how am I going to look myself in the mirror, let alone maintain my sobriety? No. You want to do what’s best for me? You help me bring my nephew to justice. You, uh, may have noticed that the quartermaines are argumentative. Yes, I’ve picked up on that. But they’re nothing compared to my mom and dad. We always talk about how they were married five times. That means there was four break-ups. Well, I mean, realistically, 8 or 10, and I’m not talking about, like, it’s a disagreement and somebody leaves. I mean, there was — there was yelling, screaming, throwing glass. You know, court battles. My brother morgan and i taken to puerto rico in the middle of the night so we wouldn’t have to see it. And there are times my parents could not stand to be in the same room as each other. But I always knew that they — they were still in love with each other, no matter what. Because even at their worst, whenever one was in trouble, the other one had their back. And that’s how I feel about you, willow. I mean, I can’t imagine any of that kind of fighting, you know — throwing barware, screaming, yelling — all of that kind of stuff, but, you know, even if — even if we did… if you told me to leave and that you hated me and you never wanted to see me again, I’d — I’d leave. And the next day, you call me and you tell me that you need me? I’d be there, no questions asked. I know. Nina: Michael’s just your puppet. Which shows you know nothing about my son or how deep the hole you dug by lying to him to steal time with wiley. Well, I know michael enough to know he wouldn’t do this on his own.

[ Scoffs ] You’re the one pulling us through the ugliness of a trial. And why? Carly, it’s not going to change anything. You’re not going to get those 9 months back. And by targeting me and potentially hurting others, you may find that you also hurt yourself. And how would I do that? What’s going on?

Thank you. Oh, no coffee yet? Spencer: Coming right up. Oh, spencer, as long as you’re here, um, I’m ready to order. Egg-white omelette, tomato and chive, please. For you, darling? Eggs florentine.

[ Clears throat ] Got it. Oh, and spencer — the coffee. I know. God, I cannot stand that woman. Spence… she has got my father completely under her spell. He needs a wake-up call. You never even considered taking the deal? Of course I have. I hate it here. It’s a hell of a lot better than pentonville, but — but I’m still locked in it. I can’t wait to get out, and I’ll be glad when I get out, but I’m not getting out until my sentence is served. I admire your commitment and your willpower. Ah, maybe it just boils down to stubbornness.

[ Sighs ] I am not going to let my nephew use his money and his influence in order to escape a consequence that he needs to face.

[ Clears throat ] I just don’t know how I’m going to get him to tell the truth. Spencer: Hey, how are ya? I’m well. And look at you, all grown up. Yeah. And a working man, I see. Yeah, you know, I’ve come a long way from the son who could get his father to do anything for him. I think I know a way. Even before my mom found shiloh, we were always moving around, so I didn’t have friends I could count on growing up. People I could call in the middle of the night. Even my dad — he loved me, but he wasn’t strong enough to stand up to my mom. So, meeting you, falling in love with you… it’s like… finding a safe place. Knowing you won’t back down, knowing you won’t bail. That you’re wonderful and kind and generous, and underneath all that, you are pure steel. You won’t let anyone hurt wiley or me. No, I won’T. You’ve given me security, michael. Made me feel safe enough to disagree with you. Safe enough to tell you that I love you and I want to marry you someday, just not right now.

[ Breathes sharply ] I can wait for “someday.” I can wait forever, if I have to. I promise it won’t be that long. Sonny seems to be getting right back into the swing of his “business.”

[ Indistinct conversations in distance ] Does that worry you? Given that trina’s so close with joss? I’ve had a few anxious moments when trina first started going over to sonny’s house, but I’ve seen how careful he is to protect his family and to keep them away from anything questionable. So for the most part, I just try not to dwell on it. Makes sense.

[ Sighs ] Although it’s quite unsettling to hear that renault reached out to sonny. Yeah, I’ve been thinking about that. So renault reaches out to sonny out of the blue. At the same time, “mystery man” shows up in town asking questions about me. Do you think that that man could be working for cyrus? Nina was just explaining to me that, if she goes to trial, it’s all my fault. Excuse me. I’m late for work. I knew she’d get off bail, but I didn’t know it was going to be this soon. Yeah, me neither, but I walked in and there she was. I thought you were going to avoid her. This is my restaurant. Yeah, she shouldn’t be here. No, she shouldn’t be here. I tried it your way, but she’s in my face, and there’s no way in hell I’m backing down. So from now on, it’s between me and nina.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Thank you.

Chanel: Oh my god, horton, today was nuts.

Allie: I know. Apparently, people really love free pumpkin cookies. No. Were those the last two? I didn’t even get to try any.

Chanel: Good thing I saved you one.

Allie: Dupree, you’re the best. Mmm. Amazing.

Chanel: I know, right?

Chad: Mmm. These cookies are great.

Abigail: [Laughs] Oh, my gosh. It is so sweet of chanel and allie to let the kids take as many as they wanted. But we probably should’ve put the brakes on.

Chad: It’s fine. It’s what halloween is for. It’s for the sugar.

Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, I guess you’re right. Oh, man.

Chad: Any word from kayla?

Abigail: No, not yet. I really, really hope she lets me take a look around clay snyder’s office. I just–I don’t want to push, but I wish she’d get back to me, you know?

Chad: She will. I’m sure she just has her hands full taking care of abe right now.

Lani: Yeah, I’ll tell him. Okay, I love you too.

[Sighs] Oh, my god. Hi, theo. Oh, hi.

Theo: How’s dad?

Paulina: You gave us the scare of our lives yesterday, but thank god you made it. And you know what I realized sitting here all these hours just looking at your handsome face? I have been happier in the last eight months than I’ve been in my entire life. Don’t let it go to your head, abraham carver, but you’re the best thing that’s ever happened to me.

[Soft dramatic music]


Abe: Go on.

Paulina: You’re awake. Oh, praise jesus!


[Eerie music]


Demon marlena: With that pesky john black out of the picture, I can finally be who I really am.


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

[Soft orchestration]


Johnny: [Growls] Gotcha!

Allie: Oh, my god, johnny.

Chanel: You scared the hell out of us.

Johnny: Have a little sense of humor, guys. It’s halloween.


Chanel: Aren’t you a little old for trick-or-treating?

Johnny: This is not candy. I was up in the attic looking for a costume when I found this in a box of old toys.

[Eerie music]


Abigail: I just hope kayla didn’t throw out all of dr. Snyder’s belongings after he died. I mean, I know it’s a long shot, but I think it could be possible that there’s something in his office that would help us figure out what he was really holding over gwen.

Chad: Maybe. I know you’re anxious to get to the truth, but there’s not much you can do until you hear from kayla. So I do have a way in which we could pass some time.

Abigail: Hmm? What’s that?

Chad: Well, we just started sharing a bed together. It’d be a shame if we didn’t use it.

Abigail: Mm-hmm. That’s a good point. I do have one question. Costumes on or off?

Chad: Um… off.

Abigail: Then it’s unanimous.

[Romantic music]


Ej: Whoa!

Chad: Ej, what the–

Ej: Hope I’m not interrupting anything. And who’s ej? I’m father john black, and I’m here to perform an exorcism on my precious marlena. Cute costume, but you really should be dressed as the devil.

[Eerie music]


Demon marlena: Well, you won’t be needing this anymore. And as for john black, I know exactly what to do next.

Belle: Surprise! Guess who’s back–

I order my groceries online now.

Theo: When you called me and told me dad got shot I–

Lani: I know. We were all so scared. We didn’t know if he would survive or if he would wake up. And it just– it brought me back to–

Theo: To what happened with me.

Lani: Yeah. That was a really dark time. But look at you now. You are strong, and you are healthy, and dad will get there too because he has us and he has his new fiancéE.

Theo: [Chuckles] I’m still wrapping my head around that one.

Lani: I know. It took me a minute too. But ever since dad and aunt paulina got engaged, he has just been walking on air.

Abe: Paulina, I–

Paulina: Hush. Hush now. You don’t need to talk.

[Chuckles] We know that I have enough to say for the both of us.

Both: [Laugh]

Paulina: Oh, now there’s the smile I like to see! From now on, that is your only job, mr. Mayor. You just keep on smiling. You rest, you relax, and you let us take care of you.

Abe: Mm-hmm. I can do that.

Lani: He woke up?

Paulina: Uh-huh. Just this minute.

Abe: Theo.

Theo: Hey, dad.

Abe: And, lani, you’re still here.

Lani: Of course I am. How are you doing, dad?

Abe: I’m good. Grateful. Theo, I–you came all this way.

Theo: Are you kidding? I got on the first flight out of jo’burg.

Abe: You didn’t have to do that.

Theo: I wanted to. And I was planning on coming back for the wedding anyway. Unless you’re planning on postponing it.

Paulina: We have to postpone it. We can’t put abe through a wedding in his condition. Oh, theo, I know you came a long way, but your father’s health, it comes first.

Theo: I understand and totally agree.

Lani: Mm-hmm, yeah, me too.

Abe: I know it’s–it’s my health that you’re talking about, but I–I have something to say on this subject, and we’re not postponing the wedding.

Abigail: Ej, it’s really not the time or the place.

Chad: Now, what my wife is trying to say is get the hell out now!

Ej: You’re still so insecure.

Chad: And you’re still a jackass who doesn’t understand the concept of personal space.

Ej: Hm, well, there certainly won’t be any space between abigail and me when we start filming, and you can’t handle that, can you?

Chad: Leave.

Ej: Very well. But you still have to come to terms with the fact that your wife and i will soon be on the big screen making mad passionate love for all the world to see. Right, marlena?

[Soft dramatic music]


Chad: I know he’s my brother, but I-I loathe him.


Chanel: A ouija board?

Johnny: Yeah, you remember this, allie? We used to play this all the time. I thought, “what more of a perfect time to pull it back out than halloween?”

Chanel: You don’t want to be messing with that stuff, G. Bad things can happen.

Johnny: No, it’s harmless.


Allie: I used to be so scared of this thing when I was a kid.

Johnny: But now you’re over it. Come on. Let’s try it out.

Chanel: No, thanks.

Johnny: Please? For me? It’s fun, I promise.

Chanel: I know I am so gonna regret this. Where should I put my hands?

Johnny: Okay, chanel, ask it a question.

Chanel: I’ll pass.

Johnny: Fine. I’ll do it. I’ve been dying to ask it something.

Allie: Why am i not surprised?

Johnny: Tell us, oh powerful spirits, was grandma marlena really possessed by the devil?

[Eerie music]


Belle: Mom, what’s going on?

Marlena: [Chuckles] Oh, oh, this.

[Chuckles] Oh, honey. It’s a halloween costume.

Belle: But your eyes are–

Marlena: Oh, oh, oh, yeah. Contacts. Kind of fun, huh?

Belle: No, no. They’re pretty creepy.

Marlena: Oh. Well, I was only trying to get in the holiday spirit.

Belle: “Holiday spirit”?

Marlena: Clearly, you object.

Belle: Well, I–I don’t– I don’t think I “object,” it’s just I’m–I’m surprised, you know, with one of your closest friends in the hospital and–

Marlena: Oh. Oh, you heard about abe.

Belle: Yeah. Shawn and I were on the same flight with theo coming back from south africa.

Marlena: I see.

Belle: Yeah. Theo said his injuries are really serious.

Marlena: Well, it was dicey for a while, but he’s going to be just fine.

Belle: Oh, good. Thank god.

Marlena: Just don’t–don’t– don’t credit god for that. I mean, what I mean by that, it really was kayla and the hospital staff that saved him. Anyway, hey, give me a hug. I’ve missed you.

Belle: Yeah, you’re gonna have to take those contacts out first ’cause they’re really freaking me out.



Paulina: Abe, are you sure about this?

Lani: Dad, we know how much you want to get married, but–

Abe: No, but nothing. I know you all are concerned about my health, but the best thing for my health would be to marry the woman I love. And that–that is my final answer.

Paulina: Well, I guess it’s settled.

Lani: [Chuckles]

Abe: And you, you know, I know you’ve been here all last night and all day today. You need to–you need to rest, so just go home. Be with your children.

Lani: Eli is with them, dad. And there’s no way that I was gonna leave your side, not until I knew that you were okay and I could tell you how much I love you.

Abe: I know, sweetheart.

Lani: Dad, I don’t know what I would have done if I’d lost you. We haven’t had that much time together.

Abe: I know. And no one–no one regrets all those missing years more than I do. And now–now we have the rest of our lives to make it up.

Lani: [Chuckles] Um… kayla says she’s gonna be in here to check on you, so she will not be happy to see all three of us here.

Abe: You’re probably right.

Lani: Why don’t auntie p and I step out and leave you and theo to catch up?

Johnny: I ask you again. Was grandma marlena really possessed by the devil?

[Eerie music]


Chanel: You did that on purpose.

Allie: Yeah, she’s right. You totally pushed it.

Johnny: No, no. I didn’T. I swear. That was the spirits telling us that the possession was real.

Allie: Whatever.

Johnny: Are you doubting the devil, sis? Bad move. Wouldn’t want to make him mad.


Marlena: There. All better?

Belle: Yeah. Much.

Marlena: And yet you still seem disapproving.

Belle: Well, I just don’t–I don’t understand why you would dress up like that after everything that happened to you.

Marlena: Well, I’m embracing my past.

Belle: What does that mean?

Marlena: That means that, for 25 years, my possession was–well, it was a topic not to be discussed anytime by anyone.

Belle: Because it was incredibly painful.

Marlena: You know what is really painful? Being ashamed of yourself. I’m done feeling like that. I don’t want to feel that way. That’s why I want everything out in the open now, which is why I agreed to let johnny make his movie.

Belle: What movie?

Marlena: Possessed: The marlena evans story.

Belle: [Chuckles] I’m sorry. Wait. You’re letting johnny make a film about that?

Marlena: Yeah. Well, I think it’s time that people knew a little more about that kind of thing.

Belle: And what does dad have to say about this? I mean, I can’t imagine he would go along with that.

Marlena: Well, it isn’t up to… dad is not thrilled about the idea.

Belle: Where is dad anyway?


Why hide your skin if dupixent

Marlena: Uh, your dad?

Belle: Yeah, you know, the guy you’re married to? Goes by the name john black? Calls me tink?

Marlena: He’s gone.

Belle: What do you mean, “gone”?

Marlena: Well, he–he had a call about an important case for black patch.

Belle: Oh, really? I’m surprised that he would leave when someone he’s so close with is in the hospital.

Marlena: No. No, I mean, he–he realized that abe was gonna be fine before he left. And you know your dad. When duty calls, you’d have to chain him up to keep him away.

John: Where… where am I? How… how the hell did I get in here? St. Luke’S. I went to find julie and doc. Only it wasn’t doc.

Ej: Hm. Must work on that eyebrow thing. Oh, good. You decided to go over your lines with me. We really should get comfortable with these scenes before our first rehearsal.

Abigail: Actually, I came to tell you that johnny is gonna have to find someone else to play marlena.

Ej: Why?

Abigail: Because I quit.

[Soft dramatic music]


Johnny: I want to ask it something else.

Allie: So you can cheat again?

Johnny: No, I swear. I–look, I won’t even touch it this time. You guys can do it yourselves.

Allie: Fine. One more question. But that is it.

Johnny: Okay. Okay, spirits, does the devil know we’re making a movie about him?

[Eerie music]

Does he approve? Awesome! The devil’s cool with my movie.

Allie: Or maybe chanel is just being a cheerleader.

Chanel: I am not!

Allie: Well, we have to ask it something besides yes or no questions.

Johnny: Okay, fine. Let’s–we’ll move on to a different subject.

Who does chanel really want to be with? Me or my sister?

Allie: Hey! That is so out of line!

Chanel: What is wrong with you, g?

Johnny: I’m just kidding.

Chanel: You know what? I’m done with this ouija board nonsense. I need to go see how my mom is doing in the hospital. Later.

Allie: [Sighs] Nice going, dumbass.

Johnny: I was joking.

Allie: Why would you even ask that question? You know there’s nothing going on with chanel and me.

Johnny: That’s not what it looked like when i first showed up.

Lani: Have you had a chance to eat? I can go down to the cafeteria and–

Paulina: Lani, honey, I’m fine. I’m fine. Now, please, go home to your little angels.

Lani: I just spoke with eli, and they’re fine.

Paulina: You have been so wonderful staying with me, being here for your father. But jules and carver, they need you too.

Lani: I just–I want to stay here for a while, okay? Just to make sure my dad is okay, okay?

Paulina: You’re still shaken up.

Lani: [Sighs] When eli came home and told us that my dad had been shot–

Paulina: It was a terrible moment.

Lani: That reminds me. Before you walked in, you said you wanted to talk to me about something.

Paulina: I–I did?

Lani: Yes. You said it was important, that marlena had given you some advice about me? You said that you hadn’t spoken with my dad about it yet, and that you prayed that he understood why you were sharing it with me. You said it had something to do with you wanting me to call you “mama.” Auntie p, what is it? The airport can be a real challenge for new homeowners

Paulina: We don’t have to talk about this now.

Lani: Please, aunt p, I’m not only curious, I’m a bit concerned. I mean, it sounded serious.

Paulina: I–I want you to be my maid of honor.

Lani: What?

Paulina: Uh-huh. Well, I suppose it would be matron of honor since you’re a married woman.

Lani: Wait. Auntie, I’m confused. Why is that something you would keep from my dad?

Paulina: Oh, well, I didn’t want him to get all excited about it, you know, before I knew if you’d accept. And so now that we know that your father is going to be okay, and he’s full steam ahead for tying our knot, well, will you do it?

Lani: Yes.

Paulina: Oh.

Lani: Yes, of course.

Paulina: Oh, really?

Lani: Yes.

Paulina: Oh, wonderful! Oh, wonderful! That’s wonderful!

Lani: Wait. What about chanel? Won’t she be upset that you’re asking me to be your matron of honor instead of her?

Chanel: That is an excellent question.

Lani: [Sighs]

Allie: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Johnny: I saw chanel feeding you a cookie. It looked intimate.

Allie: We were passing out halloween cookies all day. And when they were gone, I realized I didn’t get to have any, and I was bummed. So it turns out chanel saved me one. And what you saw was her feeding me a bite. There’s nothing intimate about that. God, why are you such a jerk?

Johnny: Why are you being so defensive? Did I strike a nerve?

Allie: No. No! All you did was screw things up with chanel. I mean, why would you do that?

Johnny: I didn’t mean to. Obviously, I know that you’re with tripp and chanel is with me.

Allie: Yeah, well, not much longer if you keep acting like this.

Johnny: I will apologize to her.

Allie: Well, we’ll see if she accepts it. Hey, I have an idea. Why don’t we ask the ouija board?

[Soft dramatic music]


Marlena: You must be exhausted after your trip.

Belle: Actually, I feel pretty good.

Marlena: Well, I’m thinking that you should– you should go on home and unpack and maybe take a little nap.

Belle: Oh, no. I’m really–I’m okay.

Marlena: Well, yeah, you know. But the thing is that jet lag can kind of hit a little bit later. But, you know, you go on and get yourself a little nap, and we’ll touch base later.

Belle: Mom.

Marlena: Mm-hmm.

Belle: If I didn’t know better, I’d say you were trying to get rid of me.

Marlena: Why would I do that?

John: Ah, so he’s back. After all of these years, he’s back. Underestimating me, that’s a big mistake ’cause I will never stop fighting you. Doc will never stop fighting you.

Ej: You can’t quit. You signed a contract

Abigail: I’ll break it.

Ej: As a producer, I could sue you.

Abigail: Go for it.

Ej: What about johnny? He’s so excited for you to play marlena. He’ll be very disappointed.

Abigail: Cut the crap, ej. You don’t care about johnny. You were totally against him making the movie, and you only changed your mind because you knew it would bother chad.

Ej: Why–why would I want to bother chad?

Abigail: Maybe because sami cheated on you. You want everyone to be just as miserable as you are. But let me tell you something, the stunt you pulled earlier was pathetic. Honestly, I’m embarrassed for you. That you can’t stop playing these stupid, petty, vindictive games. Now, I have tried to be a good sport, but I don’t need this.

Ej: Abigail, please–

Abigail: I’m out! And there’s nothing that you can say or do that will change my mind. I am done with you. And because of that, unfortunately, also done with the film.

Chad: No, no, you’re not. If someone’s going to quit it’s ej. Are you one of the millions of americans

Ej: And why the hell should I quit?

Chad: Because no one wants you involved, ej! Not even your own son. You had to strong-arm him into–

Abigail: Chad, it’s okay. I don’t mind backing out.

Chad: No, no way. All right, look, this movie means a lot to you, all right? And I’m not gonna let you quit.

Ej: See, even your husband agrees with me.

Chad: Shut your mouth, ej! Look, abby, don’t let him ruin this for you, okay? From the moment you read the script, you’ve been so excited, all right? And you wanted to do something different and get out of your comfort zone, and you are gonna make a great marlena, all right? When you and I read that love scene about john and marlena, look, you were–you were amazing.

Ej: As she will be when she plays opposite me.

Chad: Look, I get that you’re trying to bother me, ej, but it doesn’t work, okay? I will never distrust my wife again. I’ve done it with two of my brothers. I’m not gonna do it with you, so give it up ’cause her and I, our love is strong, and you’re not gonna come between us, you understand? There’s nothing you can do to change that.

[Soft dramatic music]


Ej: See you at rehearsal.


Theo: I’m so glad that you’re okay.

Abe: You know, I–ever since I met paulina, I have been more than okay.

Theo: You got engaged pretty fast. And I know that I’m not one to talk but–

Abe: Theo, you can talk to me anytime. You know, son, no one– no one could ever replace your mother. That’s not what this marriage is all about.

Theo: Dad, I know. And I know that mom would want you to be happy.

Abe: Yeah. I am happy. Paulina has made me happier than I ever thought I would be again.

Paulina: Chanel. Where did you come from?

Chanel: The elevator. I wanted to see how you were holding up but, apparently, you’re doing just fine.

Lani: I’m gonna go check on my dad.

Chanel: You asked lani to be your maid of honor?

Paulina: Uh-uh. Matron.

Chanel: Mama, I know you’ve been through a lot. And I am so glad that abe’s going to be okay. But hearing that you want lani by your side at the wedding and not me really hurts. Couldn’t–couldn’t you have told me first?

Paulina: Baby, I wasn’t planning it. When I first got engaged, of course, I thought you would be my maid of honor. But in the past 36 hours, lani and I, we’ve been through so much, and because her father, he was the one who was hurt, and she was so terribly, terribly worried. I–I just wanted to extend myself to her in some way, to distract her, you know? And when we found out that, you know, abe wasn’t gonna die, I just blurted out I wanted her to be my matron of honor. And I know now–I know–I know it was insensitive to you, so I owe you a big apology.

Chanel: You’re not the only one.

Allie: Spirits, should chanel forgive my brother for being such a dumbass?

Johnny: You’re hilarious.

Allie: I’m serious. You can’t just go around saying hurtful and obnoxious things and expect people to laugh it off. You’re acting just like ej.

Johnny: Ouch. You know I hate it when people say that I’m like my dad, the same way you feel when people say you’re like our mom.

Allie: Fair enough.

Johnny: Allie, I am sorry for being the way that I am. Can you please forgive me?

Allie: Fine. But I don’t know if chanel will.

Johnny: I should’ve never changed the subject anyway. I was on a roll running with the devil.

[Dramatic music]


John: Doc will keep fighting. She’ll keep fighting for me, for us, for our love, and she will never stop. She’ll never stop.


Demon marlena: Hello, old friend. Have you missed me?

Here we are again.

Lani: How’s it going in here?

Abe: All good.

Lani: Ah, good to hear. So I have some good news. Aunt paulina just asked me to be her matron of honor.

Theo: Really? That’s great. But, you know, what about chanel?

Lani: Yeah. I had the same question. They’re out there talking now. What do you think, dad?

Abe: Well, I love the idea of both of my children standing up for us. As long as you agree to be my best man.

Theo: Are you sure?

Abe: Absolutely.

Theo: Then I accept.

All: [Laughter]

Abe: Ooh, that’s perfect. Perfect.

Lani: Only if chanel is okay with it.

Paulina: I didn’t mean to hurt your feelings. And I would never leave you out of the ceremony. You’re going to have a very important role.

Chanel: What role?

Paulina: Well, my daddy died a long time ago, so I’m going to need someone to give me away, you know? Would you do me the honor of walking me down the aisle?

Chanel: If you do me the honor of letting me make your wedding cake.

Paulina: [Laughs] I wouldn’t dare think of anyone else.

[Laughs] Aw.

Allie: I can’t believe you talked me into doing this again.

Johnny: Humor me. Is the devil here in salem?

[Eerie music]

Where in salem? D…

Both: I… M…

Johnny: E…

Allie: R…

Johnny: R…

Both: A.

Johnny: “Dimera”?

Abigail: It was very impressive how you stood up to ej.

Chad: You stood up to him too. I mean, letting him know that you’re willing to quit took guts. And you made it very clear that there–there’s more important things in life than playing this part. But I am glad that you are doing it.

Abigail: Are you sure?

Chad: Yes. 100% we are united in wanting you to do this movie. And in knowing that ej is not and will never be a threat to us.

Johnny: Did I just imagine that, or did the board just spell out dimera?

Allie: What does that mean?

Johnny: Okay. Spirits, tell us more. Is the devil at the mansion?

Okay. Then where? C… R… Y… P… T.

Both: The dimera crypt?

John: [Grunts]

Demon marlena: Comfortable, john? Among all the dimera dead? I remember a time when you thought you were stefano’s brother. It turned out not to be true. You were nothing more than a pawn, but I thought it would be fitting to bring you here as your last resting place. You know, marlena stopped me from killing you at the chapel the other day, but now I’m back to finish what I started.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Eric: Donna, I wanna be sure you don’t feel uncomfortable about what just happened here between us…again.

Donna: Eric, we used to be married once. Look, I don’t wanna us to feel awkward about what just happened here. You had a–a natural reaction.

Eric: A reaction I wasn’t sure I was ever gonna feel again until just now… because of you.

Donna: I– I didn’t do anything really. I–

Eric: You’re just being you. Warm and caring.

Donna: Clumsy. Don’t forget clumsy.

Eric: And clumsy. Yeah. I love how comfortable you are in your own skin. And you–you make everyone around you feel the same way. For a long time now, the– the thought of intimacy just gave me stress and tension, but you reminded me that, uh– that it can be fun. That’s exactly what I needed.

Brooke: …Got everything off your list.

Katie: [Chattering]

Brooke: Hi.

Eric: Hey.

Thomas: I like it, but why not take it further? Right? Like, take the back down so you can expose the shoulder.

Zende: Says the guy trying to corner the market on restraint with his design.

Thomas: I’m playing with a classic silhouette.

Zende: You wanna play, that’s fine. You wanna make a statement, I’d cinch it all the way up, like a corset.

Thomas: Okay, so what you’re saying is good enough is not good enough for what we’re doing here. It’s a good thing I know that we both want what’s best for hope for the future.

Zende: Yeah, that’s the one thing we can agree on.

Thomas: Not the only thing. We both agree on how special paris is.

Paris: Sounds like you two are having a meeting of the minds.

Thomas: Ah, critiquing each other’s designs.

Paris: Yeah, I heard. You need a referee? I can call pam in here.

Thomas: Pam? Whoa, whoa, whoa. Hold on. You’re not volunteering yourself?

Paris: Oh, no way.

Zende: Thomas and i weren’t arguing. We were actually just talking about you.

Paris: Yeah. I heard. And I think you two are pretty special, too. Especially my sexy boyfriend.

Zende: Mmm.

Eric: I adore you. You’ve brought so much joy and passion into my life. I’m just afraid I’m not gonna be able to return that in kind.

Katie: Um, are we interrupting anything?

Donna: No. Not at all.

Brooke: If you need the room, we can come back.

Eric: No, actually, uh, I should go.

Brooke: Oh.

Katie: Well, don’t rush out on our account.

Brooke: Is something wrong?

Eric: No, not at all. As a matter of fact, uh, the day started out kind of not so good, but your sister here is a real breath of fresh air. I need to get home to my wife.

Donna: Yeah. You should go.

Eric: Yeah. Thanks, donna.

Thomas: Paris is the one doing me a favor.

Paris: Letting you stay in your own apartment?

Thomas: I’m just staying there till my realtor finds me the house of my dreams.

Zende: So, the new roomies are getting along.

Paris: Yeah.

Zende: My cuz isn’t driving you crazy yet?

Paris: [Scoffs] No. And besides, we’re both so busy. We’re not even home that often.

Thomas: That’s true. I think I see you more at work than I do at home.

Zende: Glad to hear it.

Thomas: Glad to– zende, you don’t have a problem with us living together?

Zende: No. No, not at all. But if you’re seeing my girlfriend more often than I am, that doesn’t make me a very good boyfriend. I want paris to know that she’s my top priority.

Brooke: You don’t have to tell us exactly what eric said. Just tell us what’s going on.

Donna: Um, nothing.

Katie: Oh, oh, oh, oh. Nothing that you wanna talk about. But we can see that it’s clearly something.

Brooke: Yes, we can. You’ve never been able to lie to your sisters.

Donna: Oh, my god. You guys are like high school, you know? It’s like, “we saw you talking with eric.”


Brooke: Oh!

Katie: Nervous much?

Donna: Yes. You’re making me nervous, the two of you, with all these questions.

Brooke: Well, you haven’t answered one of them. Why not?

Donna: [Groans] You know, some conversations are meant to be private.

Katie: Oh.

Brooke: So telling eric the truth about your feelings, that did change things, didn’t it? He was finally able to see, to realize that you’re the woman that he should be with.

Donna: Brooke, he just went home to his wife, okay?

Katie: Are you disappointed about that?

Donna: Yes. No. No. I–I don’t know. I just–

[Sighs] It’s what he wants.

Katie: Okay. You know, if you’re not gonna tell us what’s going on, then maybe I think, brooke, we should call eric. We should just ask him, right?

Brooke: Yes.

Katie: Let’s me get my…

Donna: No. Don’T. Stop.

Katie: No?

Donna: Maybe something more did happen.

[Sighs] But you gotta promise me that you’re not gonna say anything to anyone. Okay?

Katie: Okay.

Donna: Especially quinn. Because if she finds out I had something to do with this, she just might kill me.

Brooke: Oh, please. I hardly ever talk to quinn.

Donna: Okay. Well–[Sighs] Last night I did, um, what you said, you know. You said tell eric I love him and how precious is he to me. And, um, it could’ve been really awkward and embarrassing, but it–it wasn’T. It–it actually wasn’t at all. More happened. You know. [Sighs] I didn’t lie. I didn’t lie. He did go home to quinn last night. He did. But, um, more happened here at the office that I–and I wouldn’t be telling you now. But it, um, kind of just happened again.

[Sighs] Okay, I don’t think you’re following me here. Eric and I were reminiscing about our feelings for each other, about our relationship, our past. And we hugged. And…it must’ve… aroused some emotions in him, because… he had A…reaction.

Katie: What sort of reaction?

Donna: Remember the thing that he was having a problem with? It kind of momentarily… resolved itself.

Brooke: Oh. With you?

Donna: Mm-hmm.

Quinn: Hey.

Eric: Hey.

Quinn: What are you doing home so soon?

Eric: Well, I’m looking for my beautiful wife, but there she is.

Quinn: There she is.

Eric: Is shauna gone? Is she still…

Quinn: Yeah. No. She left a while ago, and, well, my afternoon meeting was canceled, so I thought I’d do some work at home.

Eric: Mm-hmm.

Quinn: Unless, uh, you have something else in mind.

Eric: Oh, I do. I do. It’s all I’ve been thinking about all the way home.

Quinn: Yeah?

Eric: Yeah.

Quinn: Look at you. A smile on your face.

Eric: Yeah?

Quinn: Pep in your step. What’s going on, mr. Forrester? Something happen at the office? See you later teeth stains.

Paris: What are you talking about? You’re a fantastic boyfriend.

Zende: Yeah, you’ve done a lot more for me than I’ve done for you. Wine and candlelight, I’m your man. But, I mean, come on, that dodgers game?

Thomas: That was one heck of a surprise.

Zende: It’s nothing compared to the last one. Have you told him about the scholarship fund?

Thomas: Yeah, I gotta say, though, it does sound a little, like, egotistical. The zende forrester scholarship fund.

Zende: Yeah, okay. Fine, fine. But it benefits kids from the orphanage where my parents found me. I still can’t believe it.

Paris: Well, I wanted to honor you. I know how much where you came from means to you.

Zende: Yeah, but… you’re the one who set it up. Doing something so amazing for me for those kids? Well, that’s what you do, isn’t it? You make things better. I can’t tell you how blessed I am to have you in my life.

Eric: Mmm.

Quinn: [Laughs] You weren’t at work for very long. What got you so revved up?

Eric: “Revved up”? Is that how I seem to you? Revved up.

Quinn: [Laughs] You know what? I think I need to start paying more attention during those budget meetings because I never had any idea that they were so scintillating.

Eric: Yeah, this was not a budget meeting, believe me.

Quinn: Well, whatever it is, I like it. Things have been so heavy between us and it’S… it’s so nice to see my husband so energized, especially after the way you left this morning.

Eric: Well, things are a lot different now.

Quinn: Yeah. Good. Because I–I didn’t want you to go to work feeling discouraged, because I wasn’T. You know, I know last night, it–it wasn’t the outcome that we expected, but, I could sense your desire and your willingness to try.

Eric: Yeah?

Quinn: And it’s gonna happen.

Eric: I feel like I’m– I’m gonna be the man I used to be. All the passion I used to feel, I wanted to bring that home to you.

Quinn: [Laughs] Oh!

Brooke: You and eric?

Katie: So, he had A… breakthrough with you, just now. Right here.

Brooke: Wait, so the two of you have been…

Donna: Oh, no. No, no, no, not like that. We–we were just… reminiscing.

Katie: About your feelings for him?

Donna: Yeah. Yeah, and his for me, and you know, about the past.

Donna: And somehow, that led to his…breakthrough.

Donna: [Sighs] Eric knows I would never do anything to undermine his marriage, despite my opinion about quinn. But…I think we’re just able to relax around each other, you know? No judgment, no pressure and I–I think that’s how he was able to… you know. Look, we were both shocked. And it could’ve been, like, weird or awkward or uncomfortable but it wasn’t, because I saw how relieved he was, you know? To finally have that glimmer of hope. It was really significant for him.

Brooke: And for you, too, donna. I mean, you triggered that feeling in him.

Donna: Well, no, I– uh, no. Nothing changed between us.

Katie: How can you say that?

Donna: Because he just raced home to his wife, again, like last time.

Katie: Oh, honey.

Donna: No, it’s okay. Quinn’s his wife and that’s who he wants to share the feelings with. Maybe this time they’ll be a–

Katie: What do you mean? Wait, ho-hold on. Back up. What do you mean, “maybe this time”? It–you mean–

Brooke: Wait, you mean… he didn’t feel for quinn what he felt for you?

Donna: No. [Weak chuckle] Last night, eric went home to quinn, and… nothing happened.

Brooke: Of course not! Because he doesn’t love quinn! He loves you! Don’t settle. Start your day with secret.

Donna: All right, stop. You two are reading way too much into this.

Katie: Eric had a breakthrough with you, not with quinn. That is a fact.

Donna: Okay, but it doesn’t mean he’s in love with me.

Brooke: Well, he obviously feels something for you more than he feels for quinn. It wasn’t a fluke, donna. You said it happened twice.

Donna: Because there’s no pressure with me. It’s not going anywhere.

Brooke: Well, could it?

Donna: Okay, stop. I am not a homewrecker.

Katie: No, no, no. Of course not. Of course not.

Brooke: But you have very strong feelings for eric and obviously he has very strong feelings for you. Eric can’t waste another minute on quinn. This has gone on long enough. And the problem won’t go away, because the problem is quinn. He’s gotta realize that by now. The woman he should be with isn’t quinn, donna–it’s you.

Donna: Wait, what– where are you going?

Katie: Seems like she’s on a mission.

Donna: Oh…

Zende: What do you have planned for tonight?

Paris: Nothing, really.

Zende: You want to have dinner?

Paris: Yeah, I’d like that.

Zende: Oh, you’re gonna love it. I’m thinking of doing something special. Intimate. Just the two of us.

Thomas: You know, if you want me to clear out, I, uh– I can just give you the apartment to yourself.

Zende: No, no, no, it’s okay, man. It’s fine. We’ll just use the guest house. I know eventually we’ll be spending a lot of time at paris’s but tonight, I want to get as much privacy with this lady as I can.

Donna: [Groans] Why does brooke have to get involved in everything?

Katie: Because she’s trying to help you.

Donna: Oh…

Katie: And eric. And I know you don’t want to get your hopes up, but… I think that man really might love you.

Brooke: Eric?

Eric: Brooke, hi.

Brooke: Hey. Is quinn here?

Eric: She’s not here for the moment. Why?

Brooke: Okay, well, I need to talk to you about something… sensitive. Katie and I were talking to donna after you left, and…it seemed like something was going on there.

Eric: Well, your sister and i are very close to each other. We, uh–we have a great deal of respect for each other, so we were talking.

Brooke: Well, she didn’t want to say anything, but we… dragged it out of her.

Eric: I wish you hadn’t done that.

Brooke: Eric. [Laughs] What are you talking about? This is great news. You have to be relieved.

[Laughs] I know I am. I’m overjoyed for you. You haven’t been very happy. You’ve been stuck in this awful marriage with quinn, and this gives you a glimpse of what life beyond this is like.

Eric: I think you’re misinterpreting what happened there today.

Brooke: No, I don’t think I am, eric. It should be pretty clear to you, too. Your psyche is trying to tell you something and you need to listen. It’s not that you don’t have passion or desire. It’s just that you don’t have that with quinn. You’ve been a very good husband. She betrayed you, and you forgave her and you took her back.

Eric: I won’t be chastised for that, brooke.

Brooke: Eric, that’s not why I’m here. I know you don’t want to be alone, and you think if you give up quinn that you will be. That’s the only reason you’re staying committed to her. But that’s not love. Okay, maybe you loved her at some time in the past, but you don’t anymore. I mean, if you really, truly loved her, unconditionally, you would’ve been able to show her last night. And don’t blame donna for this, okay? She didn’t want to tell us, but we pressured her. So you have to see what this means, right? You couldn’t with quinn, but you could with donna. Twice! Eric… that means quinn isn’t the woman you’re supposed to be with. The woman that could make you truly, truly happy is my sister, donna.

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

In the town square, Allie and Chanel talk about the day they had at the bakery. Allie says people really loved the free pumpkin cookies but notes that she didn’t even get to try one. Chanel reveals that she saved her one. Allie calls her the best and takes a bite as they get close.

Chad and Abigail are dressed up for Halloween as they return to their room, talking about how they and the kids got their cookies from the bakery. Chad asks if there’s any word from Kayla. Abigail says not yet but she really hopes Kayla lets her take a look around Dr. Snyder’s office. Abigail wishes she would get back to her. Chad is sure she will and that she just has her hands full taking care of Abe right now.

At the hospital, Lani finishes a call as Theo then arrives and hugs her. Theo asks how Abe is.

Paulina sits at Abe’s side in his hospital room. Paulina says he gave them the scare of their lives yesterday but thankfully he made it. Paulina adds that she’s realized she’s been happier the last 8 months than she’s been in her entire life. Paulina calls Abe the best thing to ever happen to him. Abe wakes up and tells her to go on which excites Paulina.

Marlena is dressed up for Halloween as the Devil at home. The Devil inside Marlena remarks that with John out of the picture, he can finally be who he really is.

Chanel and Allie look like they are about to kiss when Johnny pops up in a wolf mask to scare them. Johnny tells them to have a sense of humor as it’s Halloween. Chanel questions him being a little old for trick or treating. Johnny explains that he was in the attic looking for a costume when he found an Ouija board in a box of old toys.

Abigail hopes Kayla didn’t throw away all of Dr. Snyder’s belongings after he died because she thinks it’s possible that there’s something in his office that would help them figure out what he was really holding over Gwen. Chad knows she’s anxious to get to the truth but there’s not much she can do until hearing from Kayla, so he has a way they could pass some time. Chad points out that they just started sharing a bed together so it’d be a shame not to use it. Abigail asks if he wants costumes on or off. Chad says off which Abigail agrees with as they kiss onto the bed until EJ walks in. EJ remarks that he hopes he’s not interrupting but he’s dressed as Father John Black to perform an exorcism on Marlena, so he tells Abigail that she should be dressed as the Devil.

The Devil declares that he knows what to do next with John as Marlena grabs a pitchfork when Belle suddenly comes in to surprise Marlena but is shocked to see her dressed as the Devil.

Lani tells Theo that they were all so scared as they didn’t know if Abe would survive or wake up and it brought her back to when Theo was shot which she calls a really dark time. Lani points out that now Theo is strong and healthy, so Abe will get there too because he has them and Paulina. Lani adds that ever since Abe and Paulina got engaged, he’s been walking on air.

Paulina tells Abe that he doesn’t need to try to talk and jokes that she has enough to say for the both of them. Paulina encourages him to just keep smiling while he relaxes and lets them take care of him which he agrees to. Lani and Theo enter the room to greet Abe. Abe notes that Lani is still there. She asks how he’s doing. Abe responds that he’s good and grateful. Abe acknowledges Theo coming all this way. Theo says he got on the first flight out. Abe says he didn’t have to. Theo adds that he wanted to and he was going to anyways for their wedding unless they plan on postponing. Paulina declares that they have to postpone because they can’t put Abe through a wedding in his condition. Paulina knows Theo came a long way but says Abe’s health comes first. Theo and Lani agree. Abe responds that it’s his health so he has something to say on this subject. Abe then declares they are not postponing the wedding.

Abigail tells EJ that now is not the time or place. Chad tells EJ to get the hell out now. EJ remarks that Chad’s still so insecure. Chad argues that EJ doesn’t understand the concept of personal space. EJ brings up that there won’t be much space between he and Abigail when they start filming and that Chad can’t handle that. Chad tells EJ to leave. EJ tells Chad that he will still have to come to terms with the fact that he and Abigail will be on the big screen making passionate love for all the world to see. EJ then exits the room. Chad says he knows EJ is his brother, but he loathes him.

JJ reminds Allie that they used to play the Ouija board all the time and he felt there was no better time to pull it back out than Halloween. Chanel warns that bad things can happen but Johnny calls it harmless. Allie talks about how she used to be so scared of it as a kid. Johnny insists they try it out. Chanel says no thanks but Johnny asks her to do it for him and promises it’s fun. Chanel knows she will regret it but gives in. Johnny instructs Chanel to ask it a question but she passes, so he decides to do it. Johnny says he’s been dying to ask if Marlena was really possessed by the Devil.

Belle questions Marlena as to what is going on. Marlena calls it a Halloween costume. Belle points out her yellow eyes which Marlena claims are contacts and says is kind of fun but Belle calls it creepy. Marlena claims she was just trying to get in the holiday spirit but notes that Belle clearly objects. Belle explains that she’s just surprised with one of her closest friends in the hospital as she and Shawn were on the same flight as Theo coming back from South Africa and Theo said Abe’s injuries are really serious. Marlena assures Belle that Abe is going to be just fine. Belle says thank God. Marlena tells her not to credit God for that and says it was really Kayla and the hospital staff that saved him. Marlena then asks for a hug and says she’s really missed her. Belle says she’s going to have to take her contacts out first because they are really freaking her out.

Paulina asks Abe if he’s sure. Lani says they know how much he wants to get married. Abe knows they are all concerned about his health but assures that the best thing for his health would be to marry the woman he loves and that is his final answer. Paulina guesses it’s settled then. Abe brings up Lani being here all day and tells her that she needs to rest so she should go home to her children. Lani responds that Eli is with them and she was not going to leave his side until she knew he was okay and she could tell him how much she loved him. Lani doesn’t know what she would’ve done if she lost Abe, adding that they haven’t had that much time together. Abe tells her that no one regrets those missing years more than him, but now they have the rest of their lives to make up for it. Lani mentions that Kayla said she will be in to check on him and won’t want all three of them in here. Lani suggest she and Paulina step out so Theo and Abe can catch up.

Johnny asks the Ouija board again if Marlena was really possessed by the Devil. The board goes to yes. Chanel and Allie accuse Johnny of doing that on purpose but Johnny insists it was the spirits telling them that the possession was real. Johnny warns Allie not to doubt the Devil.

Marlena returns to Belle without her yellow eyes which Belle says is much better. Marlena feels she still seems disapproving. Belle doesn’t understand why Marlena would dress up like that after everything that happened to her. Marlena claims she’s embracing her past. Belle questions what that means. Marlena says for 25 years, her possession was a topic not to be discussed by anyone. Belle says that’s because it was incredibly painful. Marlena responds that what’s really painful is being ashamed of yourself and she’s done feeling like that so she wants everything out in the open now. Marlena says that’s why she agreed to let Johnny make his movie which Belle questions. Marlena tells her that it’s “Possessed: The Marlena Evans Story”. Belle is shocked and questions her letting Johnny make a film about that. Marlena says she thinks it’s time people knew a little more about that sort of thing. Belle asks what John has to say as she can’t imagine he’d go along with that. Marlena admits John is not thrilled about the idea. Belle asks where John is anyways..

John is tied up in the DiMera Mausoleum.

Marlena tells Belle that John is gone. Belle questions what she means. Marlena claims that John had a call about an important case for Black Patch. Belle is surprised John would leave when someone he’s so close to is in the hospital. Marlena says that John realized Abe would be fine before he left and when duty calls, you’d have to chain him up to keep him away…

John wakes up wondering where he is then questions how he got here. John recalls going to the church to find Julie and Marlena, only it wasn’t Marlena…

EJ sits in the living room, going over the movie script. Abigail comes in so EJ says he’s glad she came to go over lines with him as they really should get comfortable with the scenes before their first rehearsal. Abigail then reveals that she came to tell him that Johnny will have to find someone else to play Marlena, because she quits.

Johnny wants to ask the Ouija board something else. Allie thinks he cheated. Johnny swears he won’t even touch it this time and that Chanel and Allie can do it themselves. Allie agrees to one more question but that’s it. Johnny asks if the Devil knows they are making a movie about him. Chanel and Allie put their hands on and it goes to yes. Johnny asks if the Devil approves and it goes to yes again. Johnny exclaims that it’s awesome that the Devil is cool with his movie. Allie suggests Chanel could be cheating for him too which she denies. Allie decides they have to ask it more than just yes or no questions. Johnny then decides to change the subject and asks who Chanel really wants to be with; him or his sister? Allie tells Johnny that’s so out of line. Chanel asks what’s wrong with him. Johnny says he was just kidding. Chanel decides she’s done with this Ouija board nonsense and needs to go check on Paulina at the hospital so she walks away. Allie calls Johnny a dumbass. Johnny insists that he was joking. Allie asks why he would even ask that when he knows there’s nothing going on with her and Chanel. Johnny points out that’s not what it looked like when he first showed up.

Lani asks if Paulina has eaten and offers to go to the cafeteria. Paulina insists that she’s fine and asks Lani to go home to her kids. Lani says she just spoke to Eli and they are fine. Paulina praises Lani for being there for her and Abe but insists the kids needs her too. Lani wants to stay awhile longer to make sure Abe is okay. Paulina asks if she’s still shaken up. Lani recalls Eli coming home to tell them about Abe being shot. Lani remembers that before Eli came in, Paulina had said she wanted to talk to her about something that was important and that Marlena gave her some advice about her and that she hadn’t spoken to Abe about it, but prayed he would understand. Lani adds that she said it had something to do with wanting her to call her mama and asks what it is. Paulina says they don’t have to talk about this now but Lani insists because it sounded serious. Paulina then claims that she just wanted Lani to be her maid of honor. Lani is confused as to why that’s something she would keep from Abe. Paulina says she just didn’t want to get Abe all excited about it before she knew that she would accept, but now they know Abe will be okay, so she asks her to do it. Lani says of course so Paulina hugs her and says that’s wonderful. Lani then asks what about Chanel and if she’d be upset about her not asking her. Chanel then arrives at the hospital and says that’s an excellent question.

Allie tells Johnny that she has no idea what he’s talking about. Johnny tells her that he saw Chanel feeding her a cookie and it looked intimate. Allie explains that Chanel just saved her a cookie and she just fed her a bite but there was nothing intimate about it. Allie asks why he has to be a jerk. Johnny asks why she’s being defensive and asks if he struck a nerve. Allie quickly says no and says all he did was screw things up with Chanel and questions why he would do that. Johnny says he didn’t mean to since obviously Allie is with Tripp and Chanel is with him. Allie says not much longer if he keeps acting like this. Johnny assures that he will apologize to her. Allie says they’ll see if she’ll accept it and jokes that they can ask the Ouija board.

Marlena says Belle must be exhausted from her trip. Belle says she’s feeling pretty good. Marlena suggests Belle go home, unpack, and take a nap. Belle assures that she’s okay. Marlena insists that she could have jet lag and should take a nap then they will touch base later. Belle feels like Marlena is trying to get rid of her. Marlena asks why she would do that.

John complains about the Devil being back after all these years but warns that underestimating him is a big mistake because he will never stop fighting him.

EJ tells Abigail that she can’t quit because she signed a contract. Abigail responds that she will break it. EJ warns that as a producer, he could sue her. Abigail tells him to go for it. EJ asks what about Johnny and how disappointed he will be. Abigail tells him to cut the crap and says he doesn’t care about Johnny as he was totally against the movie until he knew he could bother Chad. EJ asks why he would want to bother Chad. Abigail suggests that since Sami cheated on EJ, he wants everyone to be as miserable as he is. Abigail tells EJ that the stunt he pulled earlier was pathetic and says he can’t stop playing these petty, vindictive games. Abigail adds that she’s tried to be a good sport but she doesn’t need this. Abigail declares that she’s out and there’s nothing he can say or do to change her mind. Abigail says she’s done with him and because of that, she’s done with the film. Chad then walks in and says she’s not because if someone’s going to quit, it’s EJ. EJ asks why the hell he should quit. Chad says because no one wants him involved, not even his own son. Abigail tells Chad that it’s okay as she doesn’t mind backing out. Chad argues that this movie means a lot to Abigail so he’s not going to let her quit. EJ tells Abigail that even her husband agrees. Chad tells EJ to shut his mouth. Chad tells Abigail not to let EJ ruin this for her since she’s been so excited since reading the script. Chad encourages that Abigail will make a great Marlena and praised her script reading. EJ remarks that she’ll be amazing opposite him. Chad gets that EJ is trying to bother him but it doesn’t work as he will never distrust his wife again as he’s done with two of his brothers, so he’s not going to do it with him. Chad declares that their love is strong so EJ is not going to come between them and there’s nothing he can do to change that. EJ tells Abigail that he will see her at rehearsal and then exits the room.

Theo tells Abe that he’s so glad he’s okay. Abe says ever since he met Paulina, he’s been more than okay. Theo notes that they got engaged pretty quick but knows he’s not one to talk. Abe encourages that he can talk to him any time. Abe assures that no one will replace Theo’s mother. Theo knows that she would want him to be happy. Abe responds that he is happy as Paulina has made him happier than he ever thought he would be again.

Chanel tells Paulina that she came to see how she was holding up but apparently she’s just fine. Lani decides to go check on Abe and heads to his room. Chanel questions Paulina asking Lani to be her maid of honor. Chanel knows she’s been through a lot and she’s glad that Abe is going to be okay but hearing she wants Lani by her side at the wedding and not her really hurts. Chanel asks if she couldn’t have told her first. Paulina says she wasn’t planning it. Paulina adds that when she first got engaged, she thought Chanel would be her maid of honor but her and Lani have been through so much in the last 36 hours because Abe was hurt and Lani was so terribly worried so she wanted to extend herself in some way to distract her. Paulina says she just blurted it out when they found out Abe wasn’t going to die but she knows it was insensitive to Chanel, so she owes her a big apology. Chanel remarks that she’s not the only one.

Allie questions if Chanel should forgive Johnny for being a dumbass. Allie tells Johnny that he can’t go around saying hurtful, obnoxious things and expecting people to laugh it off. Allie remarks that Johnny is acting like EJ. Johnny tells her that she knows he hates when people say like, just like Allie feels when people say she’s like Sami. Johnny apologizes for being the way he is and asks her to forgive him. Allie says fine but she doesn’t know if Chanel will. Johnny says he should’ve never changed the subject as he was on a roll, running with the Devil.

John tells himself that Marlena will keep fighting for him and their love and she will never stop. Devil Marlena then enters and asks if John missed him.

Lani goes to Abe’s room to check on him. Abe tells her he’s all good. Lani informs him that Paulina just asked her to be her matron of honor. Theo says that’s great but asks about Chanel. Lani says she had the same question and they are out there talking now. Lani asks what Abe thinks. Abe loves the idea of both of his children standing up for them as he asks Theo to be his best man. Theo accepts so Abe calls it perfect. Lani says that’s only if Chanel is okay with it.

Paulina tells Chanel that she didn’t mean to hurt her feelings and she would never leave her out of the ceremony. Paulina assures that she will have a very important role which Chanel questions. Paulina asks Chanel to walk her down the aisle to give her away. Chanel agrees if she lets her make her wedding cake. Paulina says she wouldn’t think of anyone else as they hug.

Johnny talks Allie into trying the Ouija board again and asks if the Devil is here in Salem. The board goes to yes so Johnny asks where in Salem. The board spells out DiMera.

Abigail tells Chad that it was impressive how he stood up to EJ. Chad says she stood up to him too since threatening to quit took guts and made it very clear that there is more important things in life than playing this part. Chad adds that he’s glad she’s doing it. Abigail asks if he’s sure. Chad confirms they are united 100% in wanting her to do this movie and in knowing that EJ isn’t and never will be a threat to them.

Johnny questions the Ouija board just spelling out DiMera. Allie wonders what it means. Johnny asks the spirits to tell them more and asks if the Devil is at the DiMera Mansion but the board goes to No, so Johnny asks where the Devil is. The board then spells out Crypt which Johnny and Allie both question.

Devil Marlena asks if John is comfortable among all the dead DiMeras. The Devil recalls when John thought he was Stefano’s brother but he was just a pawn. The Devil thought it would be fitting to bring John here as his last resting place. The Devil says Marlena stopped him from killing John at the chapel but now he’s back to finish what he started…

Melinda reminds Victor that she’s prepared to dismiss their charges if he gives her Kristen, otherwise she will proceed to trial. Melinda asks Victor if he has Kristen or not.

Rachel tells her that she went pumpkin picking with Brady and Chloe. Kristen says that must have been fun. Kristen then suggests she and Rachel go on a trip together.

Chloe questions how Philip knew she was here. Before he can answer, Chloe gets a call from Brady. Philip asks if she needs to answer that but Chloe says it’s not important.

Brady leaves Chloe a message, saying he wanted to give her a heads up that Lucas and Philip saw him carrying her bags in to the Salem Inn last night and Philip is assuming they spent the night together. Brady adds that he didn’t tell Lucas anything but he wanted her to know in case she gets blinded by one of Philip’s famous freak outs.

Nicole tells EJ that she’s really glad she’s here with him tonight as it’s keeping her from losing it over Abe. EJ says he’s terribly sorry about what happened. Nicole calls it shocking and insists that he will be okay. EJ is sure her love will make a big difference. Nicole mentions that she didn’t think they would be eating takeout when he invited her over. They joke about being spontaneous. EJ remarks that being unpredictable can keep one’s enemies on their toes as it makes it that much harder for them to betray you.

Xander asks Gwen how she is. Gwen says she’s not bad all things considered. Xander says he’s missed her. Melinda warns that they have 30 minutes and there’s a cop right outside the door. Melinda tells them no touching as she exits. Xander wishes he could kiss Gwen. Gwen feels the same but says they don’t have much time so she asks what’s going on. Xander mentions seeing Jack last night, who told him that Gwen was willing to confess so he could go free. Xander asks what she was thinking. Gwen argues that Xander doesn’t belong here when he had nothing to do with it. Gwen says it’s out of his hands now as Jack is going to speak to Melinda. Xander says he told Jack not to say a word to Melinda. Gwen feels there has to be a better way for him to atone for his sins. Gwen asks why he’s so stubborn. Xander refuses to abandon her since they are in this together. Xander adds that there might be another way out. Gwen mentions hearing that as Bonnie told her that Justin told her that Melinda might drop the charges, but it seems like wishful thinking. Xander informs Gwen that there is a plan in the works.

Victor claims to not know anything about a deal. Jack informs Victor that he saw Xander last night and he said that Melinda strongly implied she was about to drop the charges against him. Jack asks if Victor had anything to do with that. Victor asks why he cares. Jack doesn’t want them going to prison as Xander is his friend, Justin will always be family, and Gwen is his daughter. Victor stops him and asks who said anything about Gwen.

Nicole asks EJ what he means about betraying him and asks if he’s heard from Sami. EJ says he wasn’t referring to Sami and supposes he just has treachery on the brain. EJ reminds Nicole of their dinner last night when Steve and Kayla approached their table. Nicole calls it hard to forget since Kayla was so smashed and spilled wine on EJ. EJ says he just assumed that Kayla had a difficult day and over indulged but he later realized that her drunken display was just a ruse, to allow Steve to tamper with his phone which he left on the table. Nicole asks why Steve would want to mess with his phone. EJ responds that it would be to track down his sister. EJ states that the question is, why they chose that moment to do it since they had to have known Nicole would’ve stopped Steve from putting his hands on his personal property, unless they had already organized another ruse to entice Nicole away from the table as well. EJ adds that seemed unlikely considering they were all still there when he returned. Nicole then admits that she let Steve hack in to EJ’s phone.

Kristen takes Rachel out of her room. Rachel wants to say goodbye to Brady but Kristen says they have to keep it secret and says this is a special trip just for them. Kristen then takes Rachel to sneak out of the house but Steve suddenly appears and catches her.

Chloe asks Philip again how he knew that she was there. Philip claims he found out from her assistant, Grace, as he called her office for her new address. Philip asks if he’s still her boyfriend. Chloe says of course. Philip hoped they could have dinner together by ordering room service which Chloe agrees to.

EJ tells Nicole that what’s even more appalling then her betrayal is that she had the nerve to show her face in this house. EJ shouts that he should fire her and throw her out. Nicole apologizes for going behind his back but says she’s not the least bit sorry that Steve is hunting down his sister. Nicole brings up what Kristen has done to people like her. Nicole tells EJ about Kristen locking her up and stealing her life, so if Steve wants to drag her back here then she’s all in. EJ understands and says he would never sugar coat what she did to her, but Kristen’s life is not easy right now as she’s on the run and separated from her daughter. Nicole sympathizes with Rachel but calls Kristen a raging lunatic. Nicole says Rachel suffers every day with confusion, sadness, and pain. EJ acknowledges that Kristen has made a lot of big mistakes but she is devoted to her daughter. Nicole argues that Kristen’s daughter wouldn’t exist if she hadn’t stolen her identity since she got pregnant by sleeping with Brady while pretending to be her. EJ doesn’t want to go there but Nicole says they are going there. Nicole adds that while Kristen had her locked up, she kidnapped her daughter and wouldn’t give her back until she let her take over her life. Nicole says that when Kristen did go back to Salem disguised as her, she told everyone that Holly died in a horrific accident. Nicole tells EJ to think about the fact that Kristen faked the death of a child so she could suck Brady back in. Nicole doesn’t give a damn how much Kristen is hurt because she will never feel sorry for that miserable bitch.

Kristen tells Steve to get out of her way because she and her daughter have plans and this does not concern him. Brady then appears inside and questions what’s going on, what Kristen is doing, and why Steve is there. Steve responds that he’s on assignment and he can tell him more later, but right now, he might want to get Rachel back to bed. Brady agrees and takes Rachel back to her bedroom. Kristen calls Steve a son of a bitch and complains that she just wanted to spend time with her little girl. Steve notes her backpack and coat and guesses it was more than that. Kristen asks why Steve is tracking her down like a dog. Steve reveals that Victor hired him to find her. Kristen asks if he is Victor’s bounty hunter now. Steve responds that he’s a private investigator. Kristen accuses him of tearing a kid away from her mother. Steve reminds Kristen that she’s a fugitive. Kristen argues that Steve’s not a cop so he can go straight to Hell. Steve tells her that they can do this the easy way or the hard way. Kristen remarks that making things difficult is her stock and trade.

Chloe and Philip eat room service together in her room at the Salem Inn. Chloe talks about how good the fried chicken is. Philip wipes her face and they start kissing.

EJ tells Nicole that he’s not denying that Kristen committed a horrible crime with her. Nicole feels that he should understand why she let Steve hack in to his phone then. EJ admits he doesn’t like it but he understands her feelings very well, but he’s afraid he does not share. EJ declares that no matter what she’s done, Kristen is still his sister, is extremely loyal, and has always looked out for him. Nicole brings up Kristen’s letter exposing Sami’s affair. EJ says that Kristen saved him from a lifetime of humiliation because if she hadn’t opened his eyes, he would’ve remained in his marriage, oblivious to the fact that he was being played for a fool. EJ adds that thanks to Kristen, he knew he had to act permanently and immediately by kicking Sami out of his house and his life. Nicole questions why EJ is still wearing his wedding ring if it’s permanently over with Sami.

Steve handcuffs Kristen. Brady comes back in. Kristen asks how Rachel is. Brady responds that she’s settled back in to bed but she’s a little wound up so he doesn’t know if she will sleep for awhile. Brady asks what she is doing. Kristen says she just wanted to see their little girl. Brady questions her breaking in. Kristen complains that she hasn’t seen her for months. Brady asks where she was going to take her. Kristen claims that she just wanted to spend a little time with her. Brady can’t believe she did this just when she thought her psycho behavior was done. Kristen asks how he can be so cruel. Kristen remarks that she’s all alone and since Brady cut her off, Rachel is all she has left and she has no contact with her. Brady asks whose fault that is. Kristen can’t bear this anymore and says she misses her so much and knows that Rachel misses her too. Kristen asks Brady to not let Steve take her away. Kristen knows she’s done terrible things but she’s still Rachel’s mother. Kristen informs Brady that Steve is on assignment for Victor and asks if he can believe that Victor is paying Steve to do this. Kristen brings up what Victor did to them. Steve confirms it’s true. Kristen pleads with Brady not to let this happen. Kristen declares that Victor separated her from Rachel once before, so she’s begging Brady not to let him do it again.

Jack questions Victor planning to just let Gwen and Bonnie languish in jail. Victor doesn’t care since he’s only dealing with his family and anyone else is not his concern. Jack suggests he reconsider since he may not care about those two women, but Xander and Justin do. Jack asks how he thinks Justin will feel when he finds out that Victor could’ve intervened on Bonnie’s behalf but chose not to. Jack asks if he thinks Justin will ever forgive him. Jack knows Victor had a rocky relationship with Xander but he obviously still cares about him or he wouldn’t be helping him. Jack adds that Xander cares about Gwen very much. Victor feels he’ll get over it. Jack disagrees and says Justin and Xander see this as an all or nothing situation where they all get out or they all stay in. Victor calls that insane. Jack calls it love. Jack declares that the only way Justin and Xander will get on board with his plan is if it includes Gwen and Bonnie, so if it doesn’t, then he might as well forget the whole thing.

Gwen asks Xander what the plan is. Xander explains that Victor made a deal with Melinda to get the charges dropped, so if it works out, they will both be free but for now they have to sit tight. Gwen understands why Victor would want to get the charges dropped against Xander and Justin because they are family, but he doesn’t know her and despises Bonnie. Xander tells her not to overthink it and just be grateful that they might get out. Gwen feels it’s not like Melinda to let four people off hte hook. Xander guesses Victor must have offered Melinda something huge but they couldn’t figure out what. Xander then reveals to Gwen that he told Justin that Gwen was never really a sex worker. Gwen asks what he thinks that Dr. Snyder had over her then. Xander assures that he doesn’t know as he told him that it’s best to keep up the cover story. Xander insists that Justin has no idea that Gwen lied to Jack and everyone else about the timing of her miscarriage. Gwen knows Jack would never forgive her if he knew she was letting Abigail blame herself even though she had nothing to do with it. Xander promises she doesn’t have to worry as Justin is totally in the dark and they are the only two people who know the truth. Melinda then returns to the room.

EJ asks if Nicole is insinuating that he’s still carrying a torch for Sami. Nicole says it’s not a crime to still have feelings or admit it. Nicole talks about not wanting to take off her ring when her and Eric broke up since it would feel so final and she was scared to say goodbye. EJ assures that he said goodbye and good riddance the moment he kicked Sami out of the house so he’s more than ready to take off the ring. EJ tries taking it off but it’s stuck so Nicole tries to help him remove the ring.

Philip and Chloe continue kissing. Philip asks if she wants to take it to bed but Chloe asks for a rain check since she’s really tired as she didn’t get a lot of sleep last night. Philip then glares over at Chloe’s phone.

Brady tells Kristen that he can’t do it. Kristen questions him letting Steve drag her away. Brady argues that she was about to kidnap his daughter. Kristen argues that she’s her daughter too and she just wanted to spend a little time with her. Brady reminds her that she is running from the law and asks if she gave one thought as to what would happen if she got caught and how that would traumatize Rachel. Brady asks how much she wants to put her through. Kristen says she’s sorry. Brady says he has to try to explain this to Rachel. Kristen asks him to let her stay so they can talk to her together. Brady tells her that’s out of the question. Kristen asks if he’s not going to help her. Brady can’t believe she would even ask him that. Kristen asks if this is about Chloe since she heard about their trip to the pumpkin patch. Kristen questions if Brady wants to get rid of her because Rachel will have a new mom now. Kristen calls Chloe a whore, who has been moving in on her family for months. Brady tells her to keep her voice down because Rachel is sleeping. Kristen yells that Brady can’t replace her as she is Rachel’s mother. Steve then drags Kristen out of the house.

Victor asks if Jack has a law degree since he’d make a hell of an attorney. Jack asks if that means he’ll help Gwen and Bonnie. Victor says he’s not that good. Jack urges him to think this through. Victor tells him to go so he can eat in peace. Jack says it would be so easy for Victor to make one phone call to Melinda. Victor tells Jack that if he wants the charges against Gwen dropped, he can make his own deal. Jack asks what it would cost him as he assumes Victor had to pay Melinda off. Victor remarks that the beauty of the whole thing is that he doesn’t have to pay her a dime.

Melinda tells Gwen and Xander that their time is up. Xander complains that she said 30 minutes. Melinda says she meant 15. Melinda then gets a call and says she has to take it, so an officer will accompany them back to their cells as she exits the room.

Nicole successfully removes EJ’s wedding ring. EJ thanks her. Nicole guesses she should get going. EJ questions her leaving so soon. Nicole says she will relieve the babysitter so she can tuck Holly in bed. Nicole thanks him for the pizza and for understanding about his phone. EJ acknowledges that he may have resorted to less than honorable tactics from time to time so he can’t hold it against her. EJ asks if they can now kiss and make up since everything is okay. EJ and Nicole then kiss. Nicole says goodnight and exits the mansion. EJ looks back at his wedding ring.

Chloe tells Philip that they will get together another night. Philip says sure since she’s tired and they will talk tomorrow. Philip kisses her goodnight and exits the room. Chloe goes to her phone and listens to her voicemail from Brady, giving her a heads up that Philip thinks they spent the night together.

Brady lays with Rachel and says he’s so sorry that mommy had to go away again but he’s there for her and always will be.

Xander mocks Melinda and says she’s playing mind games. Gwen worries about if Melinda heard them talking about her secret. Xander assures that he said all of that before she came in. Xander says before they know it, this will all be an unpleasant memory. Xander assures that everything is going to be okay.

Victor informs Jack that his deal was that he offered to trade Kristen for Justin and Xander. Victor says that Melinda accepted since Kristen killed her daughter. Victor adds that Haley was dating Jack’s son, so he should be happy about this too. Victor calls it also a nice payday for Jack’s brother, Steve, since he put him on the case and he should be delivering the goods any minute now.

Steve arrives at the police station. Melinda says she was very happy to get his call and assumes he has Kristen in custody which Steve confirms. Melinda says if he hands her over to her then she will get the ball rolling in dismissing the charges against Justin and Xander. Steve responds that he’s afraid he can’t do that just yet. Steve declares that if she wants Kristen, she’ll have to drop the charges against Bonnie and Gwen too. Melinda argues that was not part of the deal. Steve responds that it is now.

Best Lines provided by Eva

Sally: Adam! Do you have a minute? I don’t mean to brag, but i wanted you to see the latest headline that I spotted. This European magazine is calling me the next Vera Wang. You do know who that is, don’t you, or do you just not agree with the comparison? Okay, well, we need to capitalize on this. And what do you think about doing a feature — “the making of a dream dress”? We can share all the sketches that I made and I can write about the process, I can talk about how I got the measurements and how we rushed it into production and how, against all odds, we got it to the bride just before her wedding day. It’s a really dramatic story. We have to share it. People are gonna eat it up.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Sally: What do you think?

Adam: I think that you should just talk to Chloe, and I’ll go along with whatever she thinks.

Sally: Do you not care?

Adam: Honestly, no, I don’t care about the wedding dress press right now.

Sally: Wow. Okay, I get it. You said you just want to keep things strictly professional when we got back, that’s exactly what you’re doing. I just thought that the fashion division was more important to Newman Media. I guess I was mistaken.

Adam: Sally, you have to stop taking things so personally. There’s more to Newman Media than your fashion line. I’m sorry, I have a call scheduled with an investor that I need to get to.


Nikki: So how long do you think you can stay? I know when we were in London visiting you, I got to see how fabulous your career is going there, so you probably can’t afford to stay away too long.

Noah: Well, thank you for the high praise, but only a proud grandma would characterize my career as fabulous.

Nikki: [ Scoffs ]

Noah: I do okay.

[ Chuckles ]

Nikki: Well, modesty has always been your most endearing trait. I’m sure you must’ve gotten that from me.
