[Knock at door]
Abe: Oh. Yeah.
Abe: Oh. [Chuckles] Nicole.
Nicole: Oh, well, I see flowers was not an original idea.
Abe: Oh, that’s mostly paulina.
Nicole: Oh, well, I hope you’re not allergic, because the last thing you need to do is start sneezing.
Abe: [Laughs] Oh, ah, these stitches.
Nicole: Are you okay?
Abe: Just don’t make me laugh.
Nicole: Okay. I won’T. So I hear you’re engaged to paulina.
Nicole: Are you happy?
Abe: Believe it or not, this is a happy face.
Nicole: Oh, sorry. I saw lani and theo dragging paulina to the elevator.
Abe: Well, she’s been here for two days straight. She needs some rest.
Nicole: So do you. So if you’re not up for the company, just say so.
Abe: Oh, hey, I am always, always glad to see you.
Nicole: Abe, I am so glad to see you. I was so scared.
Abe: Yeah. Me too. You know, that gun, it just– it just came out of nowhere.
Nicole: Why would jake dimera do that to you?
Abe: I just told rafe. He didn’T.
Jake: Hey, you’re back.
Gabi: Yes. Rafe talked to abe. Tell him.
Rafe: Mayor carver corroborated your statement.
Jake: Thank god.
Rafe: Yeah. He also picked carmine merlino’s picture out of a photo array. Yeah, merlino. Pretty impressive rap sheet, that guy, huh?
Rafe: Known associate of some major mob types in philadelphia. And we also found his prints on your gun.
Jake: [Laughs] Well, I was afraid that the mayor would forget everything that happened before the shooting.
Gabi: Well, he didn’T. And that’s not the only good news. Go on, tell him.
Rafe: Abe overheard carmine admitting that he’s the one who whacked zanetti, not you.
Gabi: And now that he’s been cleared from these bogus charges, will you please take these handcuffs off him?
Rafe: Hmm. Not just yet.
Ava: What are you doing here, huh? This is the police commissioner’s house, for god’s sake.
Carmine: I had to see you.
Ava: You were supposed to be lying low.
Carmine: Don’t get much lower than the town dump. You know how bad that place stinks?
Ava: Yeah, well, no one’s gonna find you there, are they? Thought you liked playing tony soprano.
Carmine: What am I supposed to do, hide out in sewers for the rest of my life?
Gabi: Well, it beats life in prison, doesn’t it? And that’s exactly where you’re headed. Rafe could come home any minute.
Carmine: I don’t think you get what I’m saying, so let me make myself clear. You either find me some five-star accommodation, or you’re gonna wind up in the cell right next to mine.
Allie: A walk through the cemetery? That’s your idea of fun?
Tripp: What, are you scared?
Allie: Me? No.
Tripp: Okay, well, I just thought maybe, you know, that stuff with the ouija board with your brother freaked you out.
Allie: I’m fine.
Tripp: Good. ‘Cause I’ve always, you know, thought it’d be cool to done one of those ghost tour things on halloween.
Allie: Why? I mean, halloween isn’t any different than every other night.
Tripp: Oh, yeah? Okay, let’s go.
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.
[Laughs] I’ve still got it. Undeniably, unequivocally, I’ve got it.
[Bones crack] I am at your command.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Gabi: What do you mean not yet? You heard abe. Jake’s innocent.
Rafe: Of attempting to murder abe. But he is guilty of bringing a loaded firearm to a public park, which is against city ordinances, not to mention the fact that the da’s gonna want to speak to him about all his priors with merlino, not to mention the philly pd.
Gabi: [Scoffs] Come on!
Rafe: You know the best way to help yourself? Roll on merlino: Who his friends are, who might want to help him out, that sort of thing.
Jake: Okay, I haven’t had any dealings with the guy in years, I swear.
Gabi: And I told you yesterday that carmine’s mob boss is none other than your precious ava. So if you want answers, why don’t you talk to her?
Ava: I had nothing to do with you shooting the mayor. I didn’t even know you were in salem.
Carmine: Oh, yeah? Well, let’s talk about something you do know, like how you and phil kiriakis wanted me to help you frame jake dimera, all so you could steal your boyfriend’s little sister’s company. I got to hand it to you, boss.
[Laughs] Shacking up with the police commissioner and sticking it to his little sister all at the same time? That’s moxie. But just you wait until he hears about all the stuff you pulled in philly.
Ava: He’s not gonna hear about anything.
Carmine: If I go down for shooting the mayor, I ain’t going alone. I’m taking you with me.
Ava: Oh, you threatening me?
Carmine: Oh, yeah.
Tripp: Okay, okay, so if we cut through the alley, we should be, like, a block north of the cemetery. What, is something wrong?
Allie: I can’t do it. I’m sorry.
Tripp: What? Why didn’t you just say so?
Allie: I’m not superstitious, but cemeteries really creep me out. I mean, I don’t like being surrounded by a bunch of dead people, especially on halloween. I don’t care if they’re six feet under.
Demon marlena: Marlena’s granddaughter needs to be taught a lesson.
Charlie: If you’re talking about allie horton, I’d like to teach her a few lessons myself.
Demon marlena: Ah. I thought you’d be a very good match for the job.
Charlie: I have scores to settle with lots of folks in salem.
Demon marlena: The more mischief you make, the happier I’ll be. So why don’t you just get to it?
Trelegy for copd.
Allie: If you want to go check out the graveyard, you go for it, but I’m gonna wait for you right here.
Tripp: No, no, that’s okay. I’d rather be with you. And besides, I think we could figure out something else to do.
Allie: Something that doesn’t involve graveyards?
Tripp: Are you upset with me?
Allie: No. No, I’m just–
Tripp: Just what?
Allie: Okay, I’m a little upset. When I walked into the hospital, I saw you and chanel talking, and she said that you guys were talking about abe. But you weren’t, were you? You were talking about me.
Nicole: Abe, I’m so sorry it took you getting shot for me to come see you.
Abe: Oh, I– I should’ve checked in with you. How are you? How are you doing?
Nicole: [Chuckles] You’re the one who gets shot, and you’re asking me how I’m doing.
Abe: I heard that you and eric split up. And I–I should’ve called you.
Nicole: I guess you figured out that I never sent him the email.
Abe: The one that you said would end your marriage?
Nicole: I was unfaithful to him. I should’ve known it was gonna come out.
Abe: Well, what are you gonna do? I mean, are you gonna try to work this out?
Nicole: No. We’re getting a divorce.
Abe: For sure?
Nicole: We just realized that we don’t belong together.
Abe: Oh, that makes me sad.
Nicole: Yeah. Me too. No, I’ve lain awake a lot of nights thinking about why it happened.
Abe: What’d you come up with?
Nicole: I know eric loved me. But I wonder now if he really wanted to be married.
Abe: What do you mean?
Nicole: I worked a lot with him at st. Luke’s, and he loved being a priest.
Abe: Well, that got taken away from him.
Nicole: Yes. But he never stopped missing that life. And I think his work in africa made him feel closer to who he was then.
Abe: Yeah. I see what you mean.
Nicole: I–I’m not saying the divorce is his fault. I’m just trying to find a way to forgive myself so that I can move on. I’m seeing someone.
Abe: Is he–is he worthy?
Nicole: I don’t really know how to answer that. It’s ej dimera.
Abe: Are you kidding?
Nicole: I–I’m sorry, abe, if that upsets you. I know you can’t stand him.
Abe: I thought you couldn’t either.
Nicole: I couldn’T. And when things blew up between him and me, I was sure I would never even be in the same room as him.
Abe: What changed?
Nicole: Well, for one thing, he started to pursue me, not the other way around.
Abe: [Sighs] And the other thing?
Nicole: He helps me forget someone else, someone that you would have approved of.
Abe: What went wrong?
Nicole: As usual, my timing is lousy. So by the time I figured out he was the one, another lucky woman snapped him up.
Gabi: So I tell you that ava’s the one that hooked up carmine and philip, yet you go home and tell her nothing.
Rafe: I didn’t go home last night, for the record. I was directing the manhunt for carmine.
Gabi: Ava knows where he is, yet you continue to harass jake and you keep him locked up here for no reason!
Jake: Gabi, it’s okay.
Gabi: No, no, it’s not okay. You think that you have rehabilitated that bitch? But why don’t you just do your job?
Rafe: Oh, I know how to do my job. I called ava, and we are playing phone tag.
Gabi: Phone tag, rafe? Come on! She doesn’t want to answer. She doesn’t want to admit that she was carmine’s mob boss. I will bet you anything she was the one that got carmine to get away.
Ava: Thought you knew better than to threaten your boss.
Carmine: My boss?
Carmine: You? [Laughs] You used to wield a knife with the best of them. But now you’re using it to cut up eggplant in a dump like this. You traded in your gat for a– for a sculabast! So no, I ain’t afraid of you no more.
Ava: You better be.
Demon marlena: And by the way, you haven’t thanked me for bringing you back from the dead. Didn’t your mother teach you any manners?
Charlie: Matter of fact, she skipped manners.
Demon marlena: [Laughs]
Charlie: Thank you for bringing me back from the dead.
Demon marlena: That’s more like it. Now, you know what I want you to do, so get out there and wreak some havoc for me.
Charlie: With pleasure.
Demon marlena: [Laughs]
Instantly clear everyday
Rafe: That is a huge leap to accuse ava of helping carmine get away.
Gabi: Oh, come on. Ava and philip, they started this whole carmine situation. She reached out to carmine. He told her that garbage about jake killing zanetti. And philip told me flat out that if I didn’t sign over gabi chic, he was gonna use that made-up crap to get jake.
Rafe: And why would ava want to help philip?
Gabi: Because she– she wants to run gabi chic.
Rafe: And you never thought of telling me this?
Gabi: I didn’t want to make more trouble for jake. And mainly I didn’t think you would believe me.
Jake: Hey, everything she’s saying is true.
Rafe: Okay. Why would philip want to get rid of you?
Gabi: Mm, he wants to run gabi chic his own way.
Rafe: You want me to trust you? Why don’t you try telling me the truth for once?
Gabi: What? Wait, where are you going?
Rafe: I’m going to see abe. I will have someone come and take you back to lockup.
Tripp: What makes you think chanel and i were talking about you?
Allie: Well, I know you both really well. And you clammed up as soon as you saw me, and then you both seemed guilty.
Tripp: Okay. You’re right, I’m sorry. This isn’t really my… favorite subject.
Allie: What isn’t?
Tripp: Me being more into you than you’re into me.
Allie: Because you told me you love me and I couldn’t say it back.
Tripp: I didn’t know you told chanel about that.
Allie: She’s my best friend. And I only told her that because I feel so awful. I mean, not only are you cute and sexy and smart, but you take care of henry in the morning so I can go to work. I mean, you fixed his hole in his blanket.
[Sighs] I’m the luckiest girl in the world to be with a guy like you. And saying “I love you,” I just–it’s not about you.
Tripp: Hey, look, you don’t have to explain anything, okay? I didn’t even want to bring it up. I don’t want you to feel any type of pressure, okay?
Allie: I told you, I’ve never said “I love you” to anyone. And after what charlie did to me… I know it’s awful to say, but I’m glad he’s dead. It’s so much easier to put him out of my mind when I know he’s out of my life forever.
Demon marlena: [Laughs] Julie williams. I should’ve known. The only mortal dumb enough to have mourned this fallen angel.
[Scoffs] Nicholas fallon. Yeah. Yeah, the one who single-handedly tried to bring down the horton family. You certainly muddied up that name, didn’t you?
[Chuckles] Nice work. I do have one more job for you now, though.
Carmine: Look, if you ain’t gonna help me out, I’m gonna have to take this situation into my own hands.
Ava: Get out.
Carmine: Shut up. I’m gonna take this moppine and I’m gonna wrap it three times around that skinny little neck. The perfect way for a casalinga to go.
Charlie: Mother, I’m home. We do it every night.
Ava: You–you can’t be here. You’re–you’re dead.
Charlie: And now I’m undead. This guy…he’s dead. Hey, I just saved your life. How about a “thank you, charlie?”
Ava: Thank you.
Charlie: Will this make you love me?
Ava: What? I–I told you. I told you the night that you died.
Charlie: Yeah, but i don’t think you meant it. I think you were happy to have me off your hands.
Charlie: I heard what you said about your poor dead son. You’ll never love me, will you? I’ll never be perfect like your sainted tripp.
Ava: No, no, that’s not true.
Charlie: You don’t exactly seem happy to see me.
Ava: Okay. Okay, this is a nightmare. This is a nightmare. It has to be. This can’t be–this can’t be happening.
Charlie: Oh, it will be. I want you to see the hell that I call home, sweet home.
Ava: Leave me alone!
Abe: So you said that this man who got away is someone I approve of. So I assume that means I know him.
Nicole: Yes. You do. But like I said–
[Knock at door] Rafe?
Rafe: Listen, I am sorry to interrupt, but I just need to get your statement and I’ll be out of here.
Nicole: You know what? I–I was just gonna head out, let abe get some rest.
Abe: Oh. Well, here. All right. And–
Rafe: Thank you.
Abe: You know, my– my eyelids are getting a little heavy. Look, so glad to see you. Don’t be a stranger.
Nicole: I won’t be. I promise.
Rafe: I’ll see you soon, abe. All right? Take care.
Abe: Yes, sir.
Rafe: You got time for a coffee?
Nicole: Yeah, sure, why not? Yeah.
[Soft dramatic music]
Gabi: I cannot believe him! I mean, here you sit in handcuffs and he hasn’t said a word to ava!
Jake: He loves her. This is probably very hard for him.
Gabi: Oh, first of all, how do you know he loves– no. Second of all, why are you being so nice about him?
Jake: Because, gabi, he’s right. I’m not innocent. I brought carmine to salem and I brought a loaded gun to our meeting in the park.
Gabi: Yeah, but you were just trying to scare him off.
Jake: I know. Carmine took the gun from me and then used it to shoot the mayor.
Gabi: But you didn’t shoot anybody, okay? Not abe, not zanetti. You just–you don’t have it in you, unlike me. I killed nick fallon not once but twice! And he had it coming to him both times!
Demon marlena: Ah, nick fallon. This isn’t your first undead rodeo, is it?
Nick: Yours either, dr. Evans.
Demon marlena: Whoo! Don’t call me by her name! Oh, you have become quite a handsome little devil, haven’t you? Struck down in your prime. And yet there you are, still so young and handsome… and tempting. Better skin from your body wash?
Demon marlena: Mwah.
Nick: Is that why you raised me from the dead?
Demon marlena: No. That was just a little diversion.
[Gasps] John black must be turning over in his crypt.
Nick: So what do you want me to do?
Demon marlena: If I were to give you one day back on earth, how would you spend it?
Nick: Hmm. If it were up to me, I guess I’d avenge my death.
Demon marlena: [Laughing] Oh! Good idea! And you could start with that little tart gabi hernandez.
Nick: I thought you liked her.
Demon marlena: Well, marlena likes her okay. I guess I’m all right with her when she’s doing my bidding. And I might need one more person to join my little army of the undeads. Of course, she would have to die tonight.
Gabi: Abe’s statement will say you didn’t do anything wrong. Carmine had the gun. Carmine shot abe. My brother’s just too embarrassed to admit that he got suckered by ava. But I know him. I know he’s thinking about it, realizing I’m right.
Jake: You really think ava helped carmine go underground?
Gabi: Who else can make him disappear like that? That bitch has not changed. She is pure evil. Oh, I can see the scene right now. When rafe confronts her, she’s gonna beg and cry. But you know what? This time, rafe is not gonna let her squirm out of this. She is out of the house for good and on her way to prison.
Nicole: Mm. When you said you’d buy me a cup of coffee, I thought you’d take me someplace where there’s decent coffee.
Rafe: Yeah, yeah, I was thinking that too. And yeah, but then I rethought it.
Nicole: ‘Cause I said we should keep our distance for the sake of ava?
Rafe: Right. That. But I do need to ask you some questions.
Nicole: About what?
Rafe: A police matter. And it’s also personal for me. I have reason to believe that the woman I’m living with might be indirectly responsible for abe getting shot.
Nicole: Are you kidding?
Rafe: Yeah, I wish I was. I got to ask you, did ava ever give you any indication that the mob life she left behind wasn’t actually that far behind her?
Nicole: Well, can I ask you what–what got you thinking about that?
Rafe: Gabi. So obviously, I have to be careful. She hates ava, and, well, we both know what she’s capable of when she hates someone. But I got to tell you, after talking with her tonight, I got to think that maybe there’s a chance she’s telling the truth this time. And I’ve been a damn fool.
Tripp: You don’t have to explain anything or apologize for–
Allie: I want you to know this. Those three little words have been on the tip of my tongue so many times. And now I feel like maybe–
[Cell phone ringing]
Tripp: Hang on. It’s my mom. Hey, mom.
Ava: Help me.
Ava: Please, help me!
Nick: So do you want me to kill her or not?
Demon marlena: I want you to do whatever creates the most misery for the most people. Have you met me? Now, I’m gonna need one more person like you to create this unholy energy. Who could that be?
Nick: Hmm. That’s an interesting name. Greek god of terror.
Demon marlena: Don’t ever use the g-word around me!
Demon marlena: Oh, for a smart guy, you’re such a dodo. No! The other g-word.
Nick: Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to offend.
Demon marlena: Mm. Are you still waiting here? I’m thinking. I’m thinking. Can you just go do your job?
Nick: Yes, ma’am. Sir. Sir? Ma’am? Sir?
Demon marlena: I’m not a real person. I don’t have a pronoun. I’m tired of talking. Now, go! Go make evil!
Deimos kiriakis. Another person nobody wants to see again.
[Laughs] Ah, a perfect instrument to carry out my plans.
[Sighs] On the outside, I looked fine.
Deimos: [Breathing heavily]
Demon marlena: I feel a certain energy emanating–
Deimos: The place where my heart used to be, before the coroner put it in a jar.
Demon marlena: My mark.
Deimos: My half brother, victor, carved it into my chest, said I was the devil.
Demon marlena: Hmm.
Deimos: So he put your mark on me.
Demon marlena: Well, you were much hated in life, but you will be adored in the afterlife. I hereby deputize you.
Deimos: Great. To do what?
Demon marlena: To right all the wrongs done to you, starting with nicole walker. She never, never paid for killing you. She didn’t even tell many people that she’d done it.
[Sighs] Pity. Nicole used to be one of mine. But then she fell in love with marlena’s son. But now her eric has left her. So she’s ripe for the picking. Go. Reap your vengeance.
Deimos: I’ve waited a long time for this.
Nicole: Well, I talk to ava a lot, and…
Nicole: She hasn’t said anything that’s made me wonder if she’s still in contact with her family.
Rafe: Huh. What about philip? Have you heard anything from him?
Nicole: No, nothing at all. In fact, philip and brady are at war over chloe, so they’re not exactly confidants.
Rafe: Huh. Well, maybe gabi’s making up stories again. You know, she and ava, it’s like living with two pieces of flint. I never know which spark’s gonna start the fire.
Nicole: I think the best thing that you can do is just talk to ava and try to have an open mind.
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah. Yeah, that’s– okay, well, thank you for everything, you know.
Nicole: You’re my friend, and I just want you to be happy.
Rafe: Yeah, I want the same for you. So doing something with holly tonight?
Nicole: [Laughs] Nothing, actually. She is having a sleepover at her best friend, rebecca’S. And rebecca’s mom is taking them trick-or-treating first, so that makes rebecca’s mom either a saint or a martyr.
[Laughs] Or maybe both.
[Both laugh] So no plans?
Nicole: I’m a little behind on work, so I’m gonna go to the office and try to catch up.
Rafe: Okay. Yeah. Well, you should be able to find some peace and quiet there.
Rafe: Yeah. So okay. Well, good seeing you.
Nicole: You too. You know, for what it’s worth…
Nicole: I really hope gabi’s wrong about ava.
Rafe: Yeah, me too.
Tripp: Mom, just tell me that you’re okay.
Ava: Meet me at the pub. He’s after me.
Tripp: Who is?
Ava: I have to go.
Allie: Is something wrong with your mom?
Tripp: Yeah, but i don’t know what. I could barely understand her. I’m so sorry, she wants me to meet her at the pub.
Allie: Yeah, no, right, take off.
Tripp: Thank you for understanding.
Allie: I hope she’s okay.
Tripp: Yeah, me too. I’ll call you.
Jake: All right, that cop’s gonna be here soon to take me back to lockup. You should probably get going.
Gabi: I kind of do want to see what’s going on with rafe, I mean. But I swear to you, this is gonna be over tomorrow. You’re not gonna see the inside of a jail cell.
Jake: Hope you’re right.
Gabi: Hey. I love you.
Jake: [Sighs] Love you.
Gabi: [Smooches] Can’t wait to give you a real kiss tomorrow.
As someone who resembles someone else,
Demon marlena: Hmm. The two of you must be so proud. Your great-grandson is back in town again, wreaking havoc on the place that you simply cherish. And there’s nothing you can do about it. You know what? Maybe I’ll plan a little family reunion.
[Laughs] Just kidding. No, you can both keep pushing up daisies for eternity.
[Sighs] I kill myself.
Rafe: Ava, you home? We got to talk.
Oh, my god.
Tripp: Okay, okay, tell me what’s going on.
Ava: You– you won’t believe me.
Tripp: Just tell me.
Ava: I– I saw your brother.
[Rapid, forceful knocking]
Allie: This trick-or-treater better not wake henry.
Nicole: Oh, duke. I should really get rid of you. We both know that. But I’m not doing that. And why is it? And why am I talking to a stuffed bear?
Deimos: You know what they say. Talking to yourself, it’s the first sign of insanity.
Gabi: Baby, are you still out trick-or-treating? Oh, you’re having a party instead. All right. No, no, no, I can– no, I can call back. I can call you tomorrow. Yeah, you enjoy. I just wanted to say I love you and I miss you and I’m gonna visit very soon, okay? Hey, listen, will you put daddy will on the phone? I love you with all my heart, baby. Hey, will. Hey, listen, I’m not gonna keep you. I know you’re chaperoning a halloween party. I just wanted to say I cannot believe how grown ari looks in those pictures you posted. I think I’m gonna cry. What? No, it’s nothing. I just had kind of a strange feeling. Listen, you get back to the party. I just wanted to wish you and sonny a happy halloween and tell ari how much I miss her. I’m gonna be visiting very soon, all right? Okay, yes. Yes, you too. Bye. Why do I feel like somebody walked over my grave?
Nick: I know the feeling.
