Chanel: That was quite a kiss.

Johnny: Well, that was my way of saying thank you for convincing my sister to do the movie.

Chanel: Allie and i are best friends. So she usually takes my advice.

Johnny: Which was a big help for me in this case. Can I ask you for one more thing?

Chanel: Well, it depends on what that thing is.

Johnny: I’ve got a lot more parts to cast. How would you feel about playing one of them?

John: “Possessed: The marlena evans story”? Did you know about this?

Roman: No, I didn’T. I put my money in this thing because your brother told me he wanted to make a movie about your mom. Now it’s all about marlena’s possession?

Allie: I’m sorry, grandpa. I just assume johnny told you.

John: I can’t even believe this.

Allie: He thought that this movie would make more of a– you know…

Roman: Yeah, moneymaker.

Allie: I mean, you have to admit it it’s pretty exciting. It’s not every day that somebody gets possessed by the devil.

Marlena: What are you talking about? What kind of plans do you have for ben’s baby?

Demon marlena: I don’t wanna spoil the surprise. Let’s just say it is imperative that ben weston and ciara brady conceive a child.

Marlena: Well, he doesn’t agree, and I’m not sure that I convinced him to change his mind.

Demon marlena: Don’t underestimate yourself, dr. Evans. Ben weston always listens to you. He takes your words to heart. And soon I’m going to get what I’ve been wanting for so long.

Ciara: How did it go with marlena? Did you talk to her about us starting a family?

Ben: Actually, yes, I did.

Ciara: You did? Well, did it make you feel any better?

Ben: It did.

Ciara: Wait, it did?

Ben: Mm-hmm.

Ciara: So does that mean–

Ben: If you wanna have this baby, let’s have a baby.

Ciara: Are you serious?

Ben: I know how important this is to you, and that makes it important to me. So let’s do this. Let’s make a baby.

Ciara: Oh, my god.

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

Chanel: So you really want me to be in your movie?

Johnny: Yeah, I do. I have a feeling that the camera would love you.

Chanel: Well, I have been told I take a great picture.

Johnny: Is that a yes?

Ciara: And I’ve always thought acting sounded like fun.

Johnny: Oh, so it is a yes.

Ciara: When I was little, I used to pretend to be those twins on “sister, sister,” and I would make my mama be the mom. She recorded a bunch of videos. She probably still has them.

Johnny: Well, if she does, I would love to see them.

Ciara: So if I did say yes to being in your movie, what role would I play? And if you say the devil I’m punching you in the face.

Johnny: No, you’re not the devil. I actually think I have the perfect role for you.

John: [Scoffs] No way this is gonna happen. He’s not gonna make this movie. Kiddo, did I not ask you to talk to your brother? Did I not practically beg you to convince him to stay away from this part of your grandmother’s life?

Allie: I did talk to him. I swear. But he is stubborn and he says that this is the movie he has to make. I mean, I don’t think anything is gonna stop him.

John: No, I just thought of one thing that can.

Marlena: I don’t understand. What makes ben and ciara’s child so special to you?

Demon marlena: Do I really have to spell it out? The child would inherit the genetics of a serial killer, a man who murdered three women. Young weston was right to be worried about passing on his dark, twisted legacy to his child. That’s where I need you.

Marlena: There’s no such thing as a serial killer gene.

Demon marlena: But as a psychiatrist, you must know that certain genes if nurtured in the proper environment, can result in psychopathic behavior. Weston himself had a sadistic father and a weak mother.

Marlena: Ben and ciara are not those parents.

Demon marlena: Just leave that part to me. That child could turn into the perfect instrument of evil.

Marlena: You don’t know ben the way I know him. He despises what he’s done. And he is not inherently evil.

Demon marlena: But the capacity for evil still resides in him as it would in his child.

Ciara: Oh, my god, I can’t believe this. Ben, you really want us to have a baby? You want that now?

Ben: I do.

Ciara: Oh, my god. Oh, my god, ben this is just– god, you made me so happy.

Ben: Oh, my god. I can see that.

Ciara: What did marlena say to change your mind?

Ben: Well, first of all, she said that half of our baby’s gene pool will be from your side, thank god. And since you are the best, strongest, most beautiful person I’ve ever met, I can’t be afraid of what’s happening on my side of things. And it’s not–I can’t let it stop us from having a baby. Like I said, it is important to me too for us to be parents. I wanna have a baby with you.

Ciara: Really?

Ben: Really.

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

Ben: I love you so much. It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on

Abigail: Love-making has never really been an issue for us.

Chad: No, it hasn’T.

Abigail: However, you still have a lot of issues to work out, and I don’t wanna cloud that by being intimate too soon.

Chad: This–this kiss. It’s just–it’s pretend. It’s john and marlena kissing. Doesn’t have to mean a thing to–to chad and abigail.

Abigail: Oh, well, thank you very much for explaining that, mr. Stanislavsky.

Chad: I’m being– I’m being serious. Look, you don’t have to worry about me turning this into something that it’s– it’s– it’s not, all right? We’ll kiss, and then we’ll go upstairs. Well–we’ll sleep in separate bedrooms. That is unless you–you find me too–too irresistible.

Abigail: Suddenly, I don’t think that’s gonna to be very much of an issue.

Chad: No?

Abigail: No. Where were we?

Chad: Okay, all right. Okay. Do you really want me to go, doc?

Ej: Well, well. What have we here?

Johnny: So I was thinking you could play celeste perrault.

Chanel: Oh, interesting name. Tell me about her.

Johnny: She was my grandfather’s henchwoman.

Chanel: Oh, so she did his dirty work.

Johnny: Some of it, yeah. She was also his lover.

Chanel: And how does she fit into the story?

Johnny: Well, she was a psychic too. She was the first person who sensed that the devil was in salem.

Chanel: Oh, so she’s like the hero of the movie?

Johnny: She should be, yeah. But when she tried to warn everyone, nobody believed her.

Chanel: Why is that?

Johnny: Oh, you know how some people are about psychics.

Chanel: So what makes you think that I’d be the perfect celeste? Wait, is she black?

Johnny: Uh, well, yeah, yeah. Now that I–I guess she is. Now that I think about it, yeah.

Chanel: You–you guess?

Johnny: No, I mean she–she was–she is, yes, but that’s not why I thought of you. I mean, she’s–she’s strong, you know. She’s–she’s a woman doing a man’s job. She’s wise.

Chanel: Uh-huh.

Johnny: She’s beautiful.

Chanel: Uh-huh.

Johnny: And you have a connection to her.

Chanel: What connection?

Johnny: She–celeste is the mother of my aunt lexie, who is the mother of theo. Theo carver, the guy you dated.

Chanel: Wait, so let me get this straight. You want me to play my old boyfriend’s big mama?

Allie: How can you stop johnny?

John: Easy. You see your brother never bothered to get the rights to marlena’s story.

Allie: But he said that she encouraged him to make the movie.

Roman: Well, I’m sure she said that, because she didn’t know the movie was about her. Same as me.

John: Yeah, I’ll just talk to marlena, and I’m sure she will stop johnny from doing this.

Roman: Yeah, if she wants to shut it down, I do believe the law is on her side.

John: That’s a fact. I’m gonna head over to her office right now. She has one appointment with ben weston. But I’m sure she’s alone.

Ciara: Here you go.

Ben: Thank you, love.

Ciara: So this dream you told marlena about.

Ben: I had it in new orleans. I dreamed that we had a son. We came home, and we discovered that he killed his babysitter with a necktie.

Ciara: And you didn’t think to tell me about this?

Ben: Baby, we were on our honeymoon.

Ciara: Yeah, but, baby, i would have reassured you that it was all good.

Ben: I did not want you to have to reassure me. I didn’t wanna burden you. Like I said, we were on our honeymoon, and dr. Evans reassured me today. She’s not even sure if the illness that I had is actually hereditary. You know, and if god forbid there’s the chance that our kid does inherit that, there’s treatment.

Ciara: Mm-hmm, like you had.

Ben: Right.

Ciara: Right.

Ben: It doesn’t mean that we can’t not look for signs, you know. We can’t kid ourselves, but–

Ciara: No, we will not.

Ben: No.

Ciara: No.

Ben: And I’m still not a 100% gung ho, but I know that I can certainly live with my fears, especially if it means that you and i can start a family together.

Ciara: Sounds like marlena gave you some really good advice.

Ben: She did give me good advice.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Ben: She was a little different, though.

Ciara: How so?

Ben: Usually, she doesn’t tell me what to do. She lets me make my own decisions for myself, but today she made it seem like I would be making this huge mistake if I decided to never have kids. Like, she really wanted me to listen to her. It was almost like…

Ciara: Almost like what?

Ben: Like she had a personal stake in us having a baby.

Ciara: Hmm.

Marlena: Even if ben and ciara’s child were predisposed to evil behavior, it doesn’t mean that behavior would ever surface.

Demon marlena: Must you be such a doomsayer?

Marlena: Look, ben and ciara would be kind and loving parents, and–and they would–they would raise their child in a loving and safe environment.

Demon marlena: But there are cases where biology is destiny. Ben weston was conditioned by clyde weston to become the necktie killer. Even though that need in him was dormant for years and years, he couldn’t escape the evil that clyde had planted inside him. And clyde himself is the product of generations of evildoers. I chose ben very carefully.

Marlena: But ciara would be the mother, and she is a product of–of two loving and caring families, the bradys and the hortons.

Demon marlena: I never said it wouldn’t be a struggle but the struggle is what makes this all so perfect.

To be a thriver with

Ej: I just came down for a nightcap. Feel free to continue with your reconciliation or whatever it was.

Abigail: Actually, chad was just helping me run lines for a scene from your son’s movie. We were–we were pretending to be john and marlena.

Ej: Hmm, it’s not enough to provide funding for johnny’s little project?

Chad: I was helping my wife with her lines. It’s called being a supportive husband.

Abigail: Yeah, and since the role of john hasn’t really been cast yet…

Chad: Oh, no. You know what? That’s right. Maybe I should audition for it. It’d be a–a real kick to act with my wife in my nephew’s movie.

Johnny: Chanel, listen to me.

Chanel: I’ve heard enough. You want me to play theo’s granny?

Johnny: Whoa, you’d be playing her as a young woman, not as a granny. I mean, if–if you have a problem with it, you could always play the part of her daughter. It’s a smaller role, but aunt lexie was the doctor who took care of my grandmother in the hospital.

Chanel: So my only options are to play theo’s mama or his big mama.

Johnny: Allie’s playing our mother. I mean, it’s not that strange.

Chanel: I’m pretty sure theo carver would think it was strange.

Johnny: So you’re turning me down.

Chanel: I’m gonna have to think about it.

Ciara: Baby, I know it wasn’t easy for you to change your mind, and I know you did it mostly for me. So I have to ask you if you’re sure that this is what you really want, because as much as I want to have a baby with you, I–I don’t want you to do this if you think you have to because you owe me or something.

Ben: Do you know how much I love you?

Ciara: Yes.

Ben: If I wasn’t scared of what my genes might do to our baby, I would have been on board with this from the start. I’m not doing it because you want it or just because you want it. Dr. Evans made me feel a whole lot better about this whole idea. I cannot wait to make a baby with you.

Ciara: I can’t wait either. So should we take the first step? Because I’m not gonna be needing these anymore.

Ben: Go for it.

Demon marlena: Don’t you see? Ben and ciara’s bloodlines are the perfect combination. Their progeny will have enormous potential for evil and also a pure and innocent soul, one that could be easily corrupted. It’s going to be wonderful. It’s exactly what I have been wanting for so long.

Marlena: What does that mean?

Demon marlena: You don’t need to trouble yourself with that–

Marlena: But I do. You forced me to persuade ben to have this child. Now you’re telling me that you’ve had plans for this child right along?

Demon marlena: When you risked your professional reputation to have ben released from the sanitarium, and of all the psychiatrists in the world he became your patient, it was as if the stars suddenly aligned. It was glorious.

Marlena: I will not allow you to use ben.

Demon marlena: What are you doing?

Marlena: What I have to do. I’m gonna warn him.

Demon marlena: You will do no such thing.

Marlena: You try and stop me.

[Knock at door]

John: Doc, you busy?

Marlena: Come in.

John: Whoa. You’re alone. I could have sworn I heard another voice. Now, we all know progressive offers 24/7 protection,

Ej: It’s your favorite pastime, isn’t it, getting under my skin?

Chad: Okay. You–you think that everything is about you? Look, I mean, playing a married couple with problems could be good for us.

Abigail: I never thought of it that way.

Ej: And when will you do your job, the one where you run an international corporation?

Chad: I can do both.

Ej: Oh, really? We’re supposed to be sharing the position of ceo. But the only one working long hours is me. Chad: I can’t help if I’m better at time management than you are.

Ej: That’s your assessment. Mine is that you are simply not pulling your weight. And once I express that concern to shin, I think he will agree with me.

Johnny: Chanel, please. I really want you to play the part of celeste. You’d really be great.

Chanel: Well, then you should stop playing director for a little while and do some more of that wooing.

Johnny: I left my guitar back in my bedroom, but we could go back there and I don’t know.

Chanel: Is that where you keep your casting couch?

Johnny: You are really giving me a hard time tonight.

Chanel: Yeah, it’s good for you. You’ll thank me later. But I wouldn’t be opposed to you taking me to dinner.

Johnny: Well, my father has cut me off financially, as you know, but we could go to the pub. I’m sure I could talk my grandpa into giving us a free meal.

Chanel: You really think you can just charm your way through this world, don’t you?

Johnny: Well, yeah. ‘Cause I usually can. You coming?

John: Thought you still might be in your session with ben. Were you talking with him on the phone?

Marlena: No, I–I recorded our session, and I was listening to it.

John: And how did it go?

Marlena: Well, for some reason I–I think I might have led him down the wrong path. So, I–I think I–I need to talk to him.

John: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Now?

Marlena: Yeah, I think this shouldn’t wait.

John: No, I–I–I don’t think that’s a good idea. Because you are paler now than you were when left the house. Something’s going on that’s got you upset.

Marlena: It was a very emo–it was a very emotional session, and–and I think ben still needs me.

John: Sweetheart, I know how committed you are to your patients, and I respect that, but right now tonight you’re gonna shut it down. I’m gonna take you home. You talk to ben tomorrow.

Marlena: John, this is not–

John: I’m not taking no for an answer, sweetheart. Let’s go. Let’s go. Now.

Marlena: Fine. I’m fine.

John: Come on.

Ben: How soon after you stop taking the pill can you get pregnant?

Ciara: I don’t know. Let me check.

Ben: Check. Please, please, please.

Ciara: Okay, so it says here that I can get pregnant immediately.

Ben: Okay.

Ciara: Or it can take up to a year.

Ben: It doesn’t really narrow it down. Does it?

Ciara: Uh-uh. It also says that if I stop taking the pill in the middle of my pack, which I am doing, I can get pregnant right away. It’s rare, but it does happen.

Ben: Ooh, well, then what better time than the present, huh? Am I wrong?

Ciara: No.

Ben: I didn’t think so. On the outside, I looked fine.

Chad: You know, I’d–I’d like to work hard, ej, but the truth is you’ve been inching me out of the process since the moment we took over those jobs. And you damn well know it.

Ej: I entered into our agreement in good faith. I wanted it to work.

Chad: No, you didn’T. You’ve been planning this from the get-go. I’m backing johnny so you’re making your move.

Ej: I have a hard time trusting people who betray me.

Chad: I believe in johnny, I’m supporting him. And this is your way of paying me back. Just be a man and call it what it is.

Ej: Don’t tell me, you’re serious about running dimera. I just heard you talking about acting in a student movie. You don’t have time for side jobs.

Abigail: Okay, look. You took time to act as xander cook’s attorney. What was that? Pro bono work?

Ej: What I do is none of your business.

Chad: Okay.

Abigail: You know darn well that he has all the time in the world to be in johnny’s movie in his spare time and still put in a full day at dimera.

Ej: No, I don’t think shin will concur. As a matter of fact, I’ll call him now, sound him out about chad’s new gig.

Chad: I mean, I don’t–I don’t even–i don’t even have the part, and you just drooling over the thought of dumping me.

Ej: You never should have undermined me with my son.

Johnny: So you closed the bakery and came here, huh?

Allie: Yeah, I did. You have a problem with that?

Johnny: I just thought you were going home to learn your lines.

Allie: Well, I called nicole, and she said henry was already asleep, so i figured I’d come see grandpa and get some dinner.

Johnny: So grandpa’s still here?

Allie: Yeah, he’s in the back.

Johnny: Oh, good. I need to talk to him.

Allie: Before you do, you should know that grandpa john was here, and he saw my script. He knows the movie’s about grandma marlena now, and he’s flipping out.

Johnny: Oh, man. He was–he was really pissed?

Allie: Yeah. He’s gonna tell grandma that she shouldn’t give you the right to make the movie.

Johnny: But I will convince her that she should, that I can tell her story.

Roman: It won’t make much difference.

Johnny: What do you mean?

Roman: Look, I saw it john, saw his reaction when he looked at your script, and it got me thinking. And, johnny, I can’t in good conscience invest in your movie anymore.

John: All right, now, doctor, I want you to try to get some sleep, and I’m sure you’re gonna feel a lot better in the morning. Okay?

Marlena: Yeah. I’m just still so worried about ben.

John: Have you figured out why yet?

Marlena: No, just a–just a gut feeling.

John: Well, I think I might know what’s going on here.

Marlena: Well, I wish I did.

John: I think that you were just obsessed with ben, because you tried so damn hard to help doug, and you couldn’T.

Marlena: Yeah, I-I try so hard. I-I-I just wanted to get through to doug. I want–and then I–I feel awful about trying to convince julie to let me commit him to bayview.

John: Hey, after what he did to her, you didn’t have a choice. Now, I know you, sweetheart, and I know that you–you always want to try to help everybody, especially those people you love, and–and then, you know, you’ve done a really good job with ben, but you don’t need to talk to him tonight. Tonight you just need to take care of yourself. Okay?

Marlena: Yeah.

John: Okay.

Marlena: Okay, yeah, I’m– I’m–I’m sure ben will be fine. It can wait till tomorrow.

Ciara: What do you think?

Ben: I think we should have been making babies a long time ago. I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Chad: So should we try the scene again?

Abigail: Aren’t you worried about ej getting to shin?

Chad: Ej, no. I don’t care what ej says. I’ve been killing it at the office. And I don’t see shin making any changes. Not–not with the way profits are. So should we take it from the top?

Abigail: I’m tired. I think I’ve rehearsed enough for today.

Chad: What? What are you talking about? We’re just–we’re just getting to the good part.

Abigail: Uh-huh. I just wanna go upstairs. I’m gonna check on the kids, and I’m going to take a very long, hot bath.

Chad: Well, why don’t we– why don’t we check on the kids together. And then I can–I can escort you to your room because I wouldn’t want you running into any–any dangerous creatures in the hallway, especially ones with plummy british accents.

Abigail: Hmm. You’re very protective.

Chad: Yeah.

Abigail: But that sounds nice.

Johnny: Oh, come on, grandpa. You can’t do this to me. I’m counting on you.

Roman: Yeah, I know. Look, I feel bad about breaking my word, okay? But admit it, you pulled a bait and switch on me. And it’s not fair, and it’s not right. And this new story of yours, I don’t think you get what a really bad idea this is.

Johnny: Oh, man.

Roman: Johnny, you can’t just be about what you want. This movie can mess people’s lives up, people you love, people you care about.

Johnny: Thank you for trying to help me.

Roman: All right, listen. I gotta run. Make sure nobody robs the place.

Allie: We’ll keep an eye out.

Roman: See you later.

Chanel: I am so sorry, G.

Johnny: I mean what the hell am I supposed to do now? I’ve tapped every investor I can think of.

Allie: Any way you could crowd source the rest of the money?

Johnny: That could take forever. Damn it.

Chanel: Hey, why don’t we just order some food and then we can brainstorm over dinner.

Johnny: I’m not hungry anymore. You mind if we take a rain check? I–I just need to think this thing through on my own. I’m really sorry.

Chanel: I understand. We’re gonna figure this out.

Johnny: I hope so. See ya.

Chanel: Poor guy. I’ve never seen him like that.

Allie: I have. But we were little kids.

Marlena: Ooh, goodness. Do feel kind of worn out. Maybe I could turn off those thoughts that keep going through my head.

John: Thoughts? What kinda–what kinda thoughts?

Marlena: Just thoughts– thoughts about my patients.

John: Hey, hey, hey. Maybe this gizmo over here will help. Want me to turn it on?

Marlena: What–what is that?

John: Why, this is called a white sound machine. Comes highly recommended by abraham carver. Paulina brought one up from miami; it puts abe to sleep just like that.

Marlena: Well, okay. Let’s hope it works.

John: Yeah, that and maybe a cup of hot chamomile tea?

Marlena: Aw, that’d be nice. Thank you.

John: All right, now you just close your eyes, and I will be right back. Okay.

[Eerie music]

Demon marlena: Listen to your husband, marlena. Forget all about ben weston.


Johnny: [Scoffs]

Ej: Something wrong?

Johnny: Oh, you’ll love this, yeah. Grandpa roman doesn’t wanna put money in the movie anymore. So my dream project is over before it ever even got started.

Ej: If you’re expecting me to gloat, it’s not going to happen. What if I offered to cover roman’s investment?

Johnny: Okay, but what’s the catch? ‘Cause I know there is one.

Ej: You’re right.

Chad: Can we do this every night? Check on thomas and charlotte together?

Abigail: I would love that. Yeah. Were you really serious about wanting to play john? Or you just trying to get in ej’s face?

Chad: Maybe a little bit of both. But what I wanna–when I started to talk about the two of us doing it together, I started to really like the idea.

Abigail: Why?

Chad: It just seems like it would be a fun adventure for us to go through together. And I wouldn’t have to worry about you doing some sex scenes with some random guy.

Johnny: I’m not going to work at dimera enterprises. I would rather wait tables at the pub.

Ej: That’s not my condition. You’ve made yourself clear.

Johnny: Stop playing games, dad. What do you want?

Ej: What I want is to play john black.

John: Yeah, hold on a second. Hey, roman.

Roman: Hey, hey, sorry for coming by so late without calling first, but I wanted to let you know. I told johnny I won’t help fund his film.

John: Nice. Thanks, roman. I know that it wasn’t easy.

Roman: No it wasn’t, but your right. The last thing we want is for marlena to have to relive that time.

Marlena: Ben, have to warn ben.

[Wind whooshing]

Demon marlena: Let it go, marlena. Leave ben to me. Stop fighting. Give in to me.

Ciara: Was that just me or did that feel different? Like extra special?

Ben: It was definitely not just you.

Ciara: I didn’t think it was.

Ben: Mm-mm.

Ciara: And that kinda has me wondering.

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

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


[Wind whooshing]

[Tense music]

Demon marlena: Just let go, marlena. Give in to me. Give in to me. Give in to me to me…to me… to me…to me…to me…to me.
