Philip: Sorry, man.
Nick: Don’t worry about it. Happy halloween.
Philip: Weird. That guy in the zombie costume looked just like nick fallon. But how can that be? Nick is dead.
Gabi: Jake, baby, please! I’m here, okay? You have to be alive. Please, just stay alive. Baby, please! You buried him. Be alive!
Nick: Well, I think of it more like a sublet.
Gabi: Stay alive, jake! I’m here, I’m coming! Stay alive, you have to stay alive! Dead or alive?
Nick: Why don’t you ask him?
Gabi: This is gonna take all day! Oh, thank god. Jake, baby, I’m coming. I’m here. Be alive.
Shawn: Oh, hey.
Eli: Sorry I had to call you in so late.
Shawn: No, it’s no problem. What’s going on?
Eli: Well, all hallow’s eve has brought out the goons, the goblins, and the crazies, starting with gabi, who apparently busted jake out of holding.
Eli: Yeah. Listen, that doesn’t even compare to the murder suspect that we’ve got in the interrogation room. Someone you know, actually.
Shawn: Oh, boy. I’m afraid to ask.
Eli: Ava vitali.
Shawn: What happened?
Eli: Honestly, I think she just snapped.
Ava: God, charlie. How is this possible? How are you back? I shouldn’t have run. I shouldn’t have. I should’ve stayed, I should’ve stopped you. God– charlie, please, don’t hurt tripp. Please. Please don’t hurt your brother, please.
Tripp: Allie? Get the hell away from her.
Charlie: Of course, superman tripp to the rescue. Why am I not surprised?
Tripp: Oh, my god. Mom was telling the truth. You really are here.
Charlie: What are you gonna do about it?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Gabi: Don’t give up, jake. I’m so close. I’m here, baby. I have to be close, okay? Yes, yes. Yes. Jake!
Shawn: Ava stabbed carmine merlino? Isn’t he the same guy who shot abe?
Shawn: How is that possible?
Eli: Look, all that talk about ava breaking free from her past, it seems like those mob ties run pretty damn deep. Apparently she was hiding carmine at rafe’s house.
Shawn: Oh, my gosh. She admitted that?
Eli: She’s not admitting much of anything. Hell, she’s not even making sense. That’s why I’m headed out on a few leads to see if I can find out exactly what happened. You mind taking a run at her? See if you can get her to tell you exactly what she knows?
Shawn: Yeah, man, I mean, I could give it a try.
Eli: Well, if you’re lucky, maybe you’ll be able to get her to talk to you about something other than people rising from the dead.
Nicole: Oh, god.
Rafe: This had better be good.
Nicole: Listen, deimos– deimos was here.
Nicole: He came back to get me and I–I killed him. Rafe, I stabbed him with a pair of scissors.
Rafe: Damn it, nicole. Deimos kiriakis is dead.
Nicole: No, he is in there dead on the floor with a pair of scissors in his chest. Go look for yourself.
Rafe: Nicole, you need to see this.
Nicole: I don’t understand. He was here. He–deimos was right here.
Gabi: Jake, jake, it’s me! I’m here. Can you hear me? I’m gonna get you out. I’m gonna get you out, okay? It’s me. Jake! Jake, I’m here. I order my groceries online now.
Nick: So I guess mommy filled you in. Warned her precious tripp that big, bad charlie was in town. Of course she did.
Tripp: Allie, are you okay? Has he hurt you?
Tripp: Walk–walk over here, by me.
Charlie: No! I’m in charge here. You’re not going anywhere.
Tripp: Hey, it’s– it’s gonna be okay. It’s gonna be–everything’s gonna be okay.
Charlie: Why is that? Because her knight in shining armor is here to protect her? Is that it?
Tripp: Let her go, okay? I’m the one you hate, not allie.
Charlie: You’re right about that, big brother, and this is finally my chance to do something about it.
Ava: Shawn. Shawn, did eli tell you what happened? You have to do something. You have to find charlie.
Shawn: I will look into it, I promise, but first, I want to talk to you.
Ava: Okay, no. I don’t– I don’t want coffee. I want you to find charlie before it is too late.
Shawn: Look, ava, I need you to calm down, all right? I can’t help you until I know the facts.
Ava: I told detective grant the facts.
Shawn: Okay, well, tell them again, but tell them to me, all right? Start with what happened between you and carmine merlino.
Ava: You know, this is a waste of time, right? Because I didn’t kill carmine. My son, charlie, did.
Shawn: Ava, charlie’s dead.
Ava: No, he’s not. I saw him.
Shawn: No, you could not have seen him. Jan spears killed charlie and framed belle for the crime. Don’t you remember that?
Ava: Of course I remember it. Everyone in this town was a suspect.
Shawn: Right. So it doesn’t matter who killed him. The fact is, charlie’s dead.
Gabi: Jake, jake! Jake, please, please! Baby, you have to wake up. Please, jake. Jake, jake, jake, I’m here. Wake up. Wake up, please, please, please. Stay with me, please. Jake, don’t– no. No, no, no, no. Jake, jake, breathe, breathe. Gotta breathe. You gotta breathe, okay? Okay. Jake, jake!
Gabi: Oh, my–thank god!
Jake: What the hell happened?
Gabi: I’m sorry. Are you okay? Thank god–
Jake: I–was I in a–
Gabi: In a coffin? Yes, yes. Are you okay? Are you fine?
Jake: Yeah, yeah, yeah, I’m much more alive than I was a few minutes ago, I guess.
Gabi: I thought I lost you.
Jake: Yeah, well, you might lose me if you don’t let me just breathe for a second.
Gabi: Okay, I’m sorry.
Jake: No, I just– oh, my god, I’m so happy to see you. You want to tell me what the hell is going on?
Gabi: I–I don’t know. I saw what I saw, and I still don’t know what happened. Do you know how you got here?
Jake: The last thing I remember, I– a cop…was taking me to lock up in jail, and I– someone grabbed me from behind and… that’s the last thing I remember until I just woke up with your lips on mine. That’s a hell of a way to wake up, by the way.
Gabi: I’m so sorry. This is all my fault.
Jake: Your fault?
Gabi: Yeah. Nick fallon, he came after you because of me. He busted you out of jail and he buried you in his grave.
Jake: Nick fallon?
Is that the guy you killed?
Nicole: This–this doesn’t make any sense. Deimos was here, dead on the floor with that pair of scissors in his chest. I mean, how could he just– how could he just disappear?
[Sighs] You think I’m crazy, don’t you?
Rafe: Okay, why don’t you just tell me what happened?
Nicole: [Stammers] I– I was right here working, and I heard a noise, and I looked up, and deimos was at the door.
Rafe: Okay. Then what happened?
Nicole: And, oh, god. He was so angry, and he told me that I was gonna pay, and he came at me and I panicked, and i grabbed the pair of scissors, and I stabbed him. And–and he was right here! He was right here when I called you.
Rafe: Okay. Okay, so–so deimos came back from the dead, and you killed him, and now he’s gone. No blood on the scissors. Oh, but they say zombies don’t bleed, right?
Nicole: Rafe, the look in his eyes– I have never been so terrified in my life.
Rafe: Okay, okay. So let’s say deimos did come back from the dead, right? Well, he’s got a hell of a lot of enemies, so why is he gonna come after you?
Nicole: ‘Cause he said he wanted revenge.
Rafe: Revenge? For what? Once upon a time there was a reindeer named tiptoe
Rafe: Nicole, why would deimos want revenge on you?
Nicole: [Sighs] Because I– because I rejected him, okay? You know–you know how obsessed he was with me.
Rafe: Right, okay. So that’s why deimos showed up here tonight from the dead, ready to kill you because you had rejected him and he never got over it, even after he died.
Nicole: Of course, you don’t believe me. I wouldn’t believe me. Oh, my–
Rafe: Oh, okay, here. What I believe–what I believe is that, um, you were here alone in the dark, and it’s halloween and everyone’s thinking of ghouls and goblins, and it’s– it’s natural, right? Your mind, it just, you know, maybe it played tricks on you.
Nicole: No, no, no. My mind was not playing tricks on me, rafe. I–
Nicole: Okay, you know what? Maybe it–it all was in my imagination. Okay, so I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have bothered you.
Rafe: No, it’s okay.
Nicole: No, it’s not. It’s not okay, okay? Can we just please forget what happened here? I was acting like a crazy woman. And just– just go home to ava.
Rafe: Yeah, well, actually I’m not going home to ava.
Nicole: Why not?
Rafe: Because ava is being questioned about a murder.
Ava: Don’t speak to me like I am an idiot. Of course, we all know that jan spears killed charlie, but it doesn’t change the fact that charlie showed up in my kitchen tonight.
Shawn: Right, and he’s the one who killed carmine.
Ava: Yes. Carmine was trying to strangle me, and then suddenly charlie showed up, and he killed him. And then he starts ranting and raving about how I never loved him, and I would never love him enough, and then he came after me with a knife, and that is why I ran.
Shawn: Okay, so– so carmine wanted you dead.
Shawn: But now–but now he– now he’s dead. I mean–
Shawn: Yes, because charlie killed him.
Shawn: Yes, I know. I know that’s your story.
Ava: It’s the truth.
Shawn: I thought you changed your ways, ava.
Ava: I have.
Shawn: Moved in with rafe, starting a new life.
Ava: What are you trying to get at?
Shawn: I don’t know. You’ve got a good thing going. And you’re happy, you’re settled, and then your past comes back, and it bites you. Things get out of hand. I don’t know. Maybe you’re latching onto this crazy story because you want to avoid taking responsibility for killing carmine merlino.
Philip: Detective grant. You out trick-or-treating? I’m afraid we’re down to the dregs, but there’s still a few good pieces left if you dig.
Eli: I’m here on police business.
Philip: What can I do for you?
Eli: Carmine merlino was found dead earlier this evening.
Philip: I heard about that on the news. Wasn’t he the man believed to have shot mayor carver? What would you want with me?
Eli: Look, you can–you can cut the whole innocent act, okay? I know that you’re up to your eyeballs in this.
Philip: How so?
Eli: Because carmine merlino was in town because of you. Because he had got some dirt on jake dimera that you were gonna use to get gabi to hand over her company to you. Allegedly. And instead he ended up shooting my father-in-law.
Philip: That’s quite a tale. But if you’re looking for me to confirm it–
Eli: Why don’t you just start with answering some of my questions. Like when’s the last time that you saw the guy?
Philip: Will you please calm down? Jake’s the one who brought carmine to salem. You and I didn’t even know about it.
Ava: You think that gabi’s gonna let jake take the rap? She hates my guts. Damn! I don’t know why I agreed to help you. I don’t know what I was thinking.
Philip: I thought you had nerves of steel.
Ava: Rafe cannot find out that I am mixed up in what happened to abe carver.
Philip: So what do you wanna do?
Ava: We gotta keep carmine quiet, which means you need to do what he wants.
Philip: I can’t hide him here. He came to the freaking front door. You think henderson’s not gonna tell my father about my house guest, the mobster? You know how to disappear people. You get rid of carmine.
Ava: All right, I will.
Philip: Call me when it’s handled.
Ava: Oi, hey, hey. Where you think you’re going?
Philip: You started this. You handle it. I’ve got places to go, people to see. I admit I… learned some unsavory details about an employee and promptly fired him for it, which isn’t a crime the last time I checked. But if this carmine was an associate of jake’s, maybe the person you want to talk to is jake.
Jake: Nick fallon. You killed him…twice, right? So…how the hell is he alive enough to try and kill me?
Gabi: All I know is he was dead and buried here up until tonight. Now he’s walking around salem as creepy as he was when he was alive.
Jake: [Chuckles] You saying he’s a–a zombie? That’s crazy, right?
Nick: Isn’t it just?
[Laughs] You should’ve left well enough alone because now… we’re gonna have to do this all over again. Hi sabrina!
Nicole: Ava’s being questioned about a murder? Why?
Rafe: Well, after I left you at the hospital, I went home, and I found carmine merlino dead on my kitchen floor.
Nicole: Isn’t that the man suspected of shooting abe?
Rafe: Yep, that’s the one, and from what I can gather, ava’s been hiding him.
Nicole: In your house?
Rafe: Yep, apparently so. She thought it was okay to put me and my family at risk to hide the guy who nearly killed abe.
Nicole: You think she might have killed that guy?
Rafe: Uh, you know, honestly, I don’t know, but like I said before, there is definitely a connection between ava and carmine.
Nicole: And you’re wondering if she might be reverting to her old ways.
Rafe: Yeah, yeah. And according to gabi, ava hooked philip up with merlino to get dirt on jake so as to blackmail gabi and take over gabichic.
Nicole: I can’t believe she would do that.
Rafe: No, you’re right. Neither can I. You know, and for weeks, she’s been going out of her way to be nice to gabi, and I– you know, this whole time, she’s been plotting to take over her company with philip.
Nicole: I am so sorry.
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, so am I. Yeah, it looks like I’ve been played for the fool. So…apparently ava hasn’t been honest with me for a very, very long time.
Ava: For the hundredth time, I did not murder carmine. Charlie did. And this isn’t just about me. This is about keeping everyone in this town safe.
Shawn: What do you mean?
Ava: Charlie, he is on the loose, and he wants henry back. He could be going after allie as we speak.
Tripp: You know, you’re such a loser, you know that? You were a loser when you were alive, and now you’re just a loser as a zombie.
Charlie: Shut the hell up.
Tripp: You’re not even scary. You’re just pathetic.
Allie: Tripp, don’t make it worse.
Charlie: Better listen to your little girlfriend ’cause by the time I’m done with you–
Tripp: Bring it, then. Come on, at least you’ll be picking on somebody your own size instead of allie.
Charlie: Instead of who, allie? Oh, poor, innocent allie, she wanted it that night. She’s never gonna admit it, but she did.
Tripp: Shut the hell up–
Charlie: Or what, you’re gonna kill me? I’m already dead, and that’s your fault.
Tripp: I’m not the one who put a bullet in you.
Charlie: You were there the night that jan shot me. You knocked on the door. You called my name. I heard you, and what’d you do? You just walked away.
Tripp: I didn’t know you were inside.
Charlie: You didn’t know I wasn’T. You could’ve busted down the door. You could’ve called an ambulance. If you did, I’d still be alive. You know what? I’m glad you didn’t try to rescue me ’cause then jan would’ve had the pleasure of killing you, and now, that pleasure is mine.
Charlie: What better way to pay you back for the hell that you made my life than to take you back down to hell with me?
Allie: No, no, no!
Gabi: How the hell? You came back from the dead, but you are not going anywhere near jake.
Nick: I told you, sweet cheeks, it’s called payback.
Gabi: No, please let it go. Please, nick. Nick, just let it go.
Nick: Gabi, just calm down.
Nick: Gabi, gabi, are you– are you okay?
Gabi: I want to go home.
Nick: Okay. Well, where is home? You know? I’ll make you feel better.
Nick: You’ve told me so many times how much you love it, the way I make you feel.
Gabi: Nick, you’re scaring me.
Nick: Don’t be scared. Just let me help you remember why we’re so good together.
Gabi: No, no, no.
Nick: You kill me…
Gabi: Stop it!
Nick: [Grunts, thuds]
Nick: I kill the man you love, even steven. Now, get out of my way.
Jake: Don’t you touch–
Nick: [Chuckles] Says the guy who can barely stand.
Gabi: Leave him alone, nick.
Jake: You bastard.
Nick: You’re hard to kill. But you know what they say, “if at first you don’t succeed, try a stake through the heart.”
[Grunts] I think you’re… a bit confused, pal. I’m not the undead one.
Nick: True. But I think it’ll still get the job done. Might be overkill but…
[Laughs] Whatever it takes.
[Metallic clang] Charmin ultra soft has so much cushiony softness,
Allie: Charlie, no!
Charlie: Ow! Ah, you bitch.
Allie: I should’ve done that a long time ago.
Charlie: You’ll regret that.
Allie: Tripp, be careful.
Tripp: It’s over!
Charlie: You think you won, don’t you? You have our mom, my son, you even got the girl. But guess what, big brother? You can play house all you want, but deep down you know she’s always gonna be damaged goods. All you got was my sloppy seconds.
Allie: Tripp! Tripp!
Gabi: He’s dead.
Jake: Didn’t know zombies had a heartbeat.
Gabi: Yeah, well, nick didn’t have a heart when he was alive, so same difference.
[Thudding] Yep, he’s dead. Hopefully for good this time.
Jake: Thanks for killing him before he could kill me.
Gabi: I already killed nick twice. I guess he was right. Third time really is the charm. All right, should we put him back where he belongs?
Jake: Yeah, I think that’s a good idea.
Gabi: Can you stand? I can help you.
Jake: Well, one undead, dead again.
[Grunts] Whoo, so… since we’ve established that you’ve already put this maniac out of his misery three times, how do you explain how the hell he got out of here tonight? Climbed out of this grave?
Gabi: Jake, I have no clue, and honestly I don’t even think I want to find out.
Eli: Well, I’d like to talk to jake, but he busted out of jail tonight and is still at large.
Philip: On your watch, detective? Higher-ups couldn’t be too pleased about that. Any leads?
Eli: He may have had help.
Philip: Let me guess. You mean gabi.
Eli: I mean… he may have had help.
Philip: So gabi busts her mobster boyfriend out of the slammer. I knew those two were bad news. Glad I fired him. But I’m a little confused, detective. Shouldn’t you be out hunting salem’s own bonnie and clyde instead of harassing innocent citizens?
Philip: The innocent part is still up for debate. I’ve got to get back to the station.
Philip: So we’re done?
Eli: For tonight, but I may have more questions, so–
Philip: “Don’t leave town?” Don’t worry. This isn’t my first rodeo. If you need me, you know where I’ll be. Feel free to take some candy for the road.
Nicole: I knew ava and gabi didn’t get along, but for ava to help philip steal gabi’s company– that company means everything to her.
Rafe: Yeah, well, you know, don’t go feeling too sorry for gabi because it turns out she’s not exactly on the straight-and-narrow, either.
Nicole: What do you mean?
Rafe: Well, jake broke out of jail tonight, and it looks like gabi may have helped him.
Rafe: Yeah, nuts, right? Yeah, exactly. I thought I was gonna spend tonight confiscating toilet paper and shaving cream.
Nicole: Oh, and then–then i call you over here to deal with A… pair of scissors.
Rafe: Well, it wasn’t just a pair of scissors. You were obviously very shaken up.
Nicole: Over nothing. I’m sorry, again.
Rafe: No, no, stop. Stop it. Stop, okay? Stop apologizing. It’s okay.
Rafe: No, I’m glad I was here. I was worried about you.
Nicole: Well, I–I’m fine. I–I’m fine, so… you should go and solve the case.
Rafe: Yeah, you know, actually eli is working the investigation because, you know, between gabi and ava, I’m a little too close to it, you know? Anyway, I’m glad that I’m here because, you know, on a night like tonight and all that craziness out there, right, I don’t want to leave you alone.
Nicole: Well, I’m–I’m I’m not alone. I’ve got–I’ve got duke.
Nicole: And he’s awesome company, he’s always there when you need him.
Rafe: Well, what if I want to be the one who’s there when you need him? Nyquil severe gives you powerful relief
Nicole: You wanna be there for me? But you are. You always have been. We’re friends.
Rafe: Yeah, well… maybe I’m jealous of all the time you spend with duke.
Nicole: But we agreed.
Rafe: Yeah. I know what we agreed. We agreed we were gonna stay away from each other so that I could give my relationship with ava a chance. That’s not working for me anymore.
Nicole: But what about you and ava?
Rafe: After what’s happened tonight, I don’t– I don’t know if there is a me and ava.
Nicole: But you haven’t even talked. I mean, maybe there’s an explanation.
Rafe: For screwing over my sister, finding a dead guy on my kitchen floor? I’ve tried with ava. I have. I’ve– I’ve given her the benefit of the doubt. I’ve defended her to my sister. I’ve avoided you, you know. I’ve pretended that a bench and a doughnut and a bad coffee at the hospital was enough. It’s not. It’s just not because every time I see you, I just want…
Nicole: You just… want to what?
Shawn: Do you remember when charlie drugged you, and you were seeing people who weren’t actually there? And you thought– you thought that charlie– charlie killed tripp.
Ava: Yeah. Tripp said the same thing. He thought it might be an aftereffect of the drug.
Ava: Okay, so it is possible that maybe–
Ava: No, no, because charlie wasn’t a hallucination, okay? If he was, carmine wouldn’t actually be dead.
Shawn: Unless, you–
Ava: Okay, just stop it. Please, just stop. You know what? I would like to speak to someone who is actually going to listen.
Shawn: Do you want a lawyer?
Ava: No, I want rafe.
Shawn: I’m sorry, but he’s not here right now.
Shawn: Well, kinda figured that one, detective, but, um, I do believe that I am entitled to a phone call.
Shawn: Okay, yes, you are. I’ll call him for you. How’s that?
Shawn: Yeah, he’s not picking up. Rafe, hey, it’s shawn. Listen, I’m down at the station right now with ava. Can you– can you give me a call when you get this? Um, she wants to talk to you, and she’s saying that, uh– you know what, just– just give me a call when you get this, all right?
Allie: Tripp, enough. Hey–
Tripp: Son of a bitch.
Allie: Hey. Enough, okay? He can’t hurt me anymore.
Tripp: Alive, dead, undead, my brother is never gonna hurt you again, okay? I’ll make sure of that. All right? Do you hear me?
Jake: What do you say we rebury him?
Gabi: Oh, I’ve dug up enough dirt for one night. And I don’t want to stay around here and wait for somebody else to get reanimated.
Jake: Yeah. I’m ready to get the hell out of here, too.
Gabi: Hey, jake, you were just dead. We should get you to a hospital.
Jake: Yes, I may be very much alive but… I’m also an escaped prisoner.
Gabi: You did not escape and you did nothing wrong.
Jake: Still, I need to set things straight with the cops, and as much as I’d like to get you home, get you to bed, I’ve gotta get back to jail. Serena: It’s my 3:10
Shawn: Look, I’m sorry. Rafe didn’t pick up.
Ava: Okay, will you call him again? Please, you have to–
Shawn: Look, obviously he’s busy, ava.
Ava: Okay, well, so if he doesn’t call back in a few minutes, just call him again.
Shawn: Listen, I’ve got places I need to be right now–
Ava: Please, will you please?
Shawn: Listen, you know what? I keep my phone on me at all times. I know when rafe gets his message, he’s going to call me back, and as soon as he does, I will let you know, all right?
Eli: Shawn, did you get anything out of ava?
Shawn: Nope. She’s sticking to her “my dead son did it” story.
Eli: Got to give it to her, it’s a new one.
Shawn: Yeah, any news on jake dimera?
Eli: No, we’ve got units combing through the city. No luck. He’s still at large– what the hell?
Shawn: Speak of the devil.
Gabi: Look, I know what you’re thinking but we can explain.
Shawn: About how you busted jake out of here?
Gabi: That is not how that happened.
Eli: I would love to hear how it did happen. Every single detail. Who’s going first?
Jake: Don’t blame gabi. She had nothing to do with my escape. I did this all on my own.
Tripp: You know when I said I wanted to do one of those ghost tours on halloween? Yeah, I’m over it.
Allie: Charlie couldn’t have just disappeared. I mean, where is he?
Tripp: I have no idea.
Allie: But that–I mean, that just happened, right? That was real, wasn’t it?
Tripp: I–I don’t know what the hell is going on, but it’s not just us, okay? My mom saw him, too.
Allie: That’s why she called you?
Tripp: Yeah, apparently charlie killed somebody right in front of her and came after her with a knife. She freaked out and barely escaped.
Allie: Oh, my god.
Tripp: When she first told me about it, I didn’t believe her. I just blew it off. I thought it was just some aftereffect of the drugs charlie gave her, but when I saw him with you, I–
Allie: That was no aftereffect. How did you even know to show up?
Tripp: Mom was afraid that charlie would go after you, and even if it turned out to be all in her head, I couldn’t take that chance ’cause the just the thought of that– of that maniac being anywhere near you or henry. Thank god the little guy’s with roman.
Allie: What if you didn’t show up? Oh, what if charlie had taken henry?
Tripp: Hey, hey, hey, hey. Hey, hey, but he didn’t, okay? It’s okay, it’s okay. He didn’T. You’re safe, and henry’s safe, okay?
Allie: Because of you.
Tripp: Hey. The only reason I’m still breathing is because you’re pretty good with the frying pans. Thank you.
Allie: When I saw charlie’s hands around your neck–
Tripp: It’s okay. It’s all right, it’s all right. It’s okay. Are you okay? What?
Allie: I… I love you.
Tripp: Don’t say that.
Allie: No, I want to say it. Because it’s true. I love you, tripp johnson.
