Philip: What the hell are you trying to pull, ava?
Lucas: Hey, bro.
Philip: Man, you scared the hell out of me.
Lucas: Relax. Halloween’s over. So what’s going on?
Philip: You invited me to lunch, you tell me.
Lucas: Well, yeah, I invited you to lunch ’cause it’s the only way to make you sit down long enough to tell me what’s going on with the whole brady and chloe thing.
Kate: What “brady and chloe thing”?
Chloe: Brady? Are you okay?
Brady: Yeah. Um, yes. It’s–it’s nothing.
Chloe: Uh, you didn’t even hear me call your name, so it’s definitely something.
Brady: Let’s forget about it, okay? Let’s forget about it.
Chloe: Uh, I would, except i don’t know what I’m forgetting about ’cause you didn’t tell me anything.
Brady: You’re not gonna let this go, are you?
Chloe: No. So you might as well spill.
Brady: Okay, I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you. I was picturing us having sex on that conference table.
Susan: Oh! There is evil associated with this baby.
Ciara: Was ben right? Did he somehow pass this along to our baby?
Susan: No. No, I–I don’t feel the evil coming from the baby’s father.
Ciara: Okay. Well–
Susan: It’s coming from someone else!
Ciara: Okay, well, who then? Susan, who?
Susan: It–it’s just–it’s so fuzzy.
Ciara: Come on; do it again.
Susan: No, it’s fuzzy, fuzzy. And I just– it’s just gets all jumbled up. So I can’t really see anything right now.
Ciara: Right. Okay. Well, please, you have to try again, okay? Where is this source of evil coming from? Who is it, susan?
Marlena: Ben, you and ciara having a baby. Oh, that’s the most wonderful news!
Ben: Well, thank you. But not according to susan banks.
Marlena: What does she have to do with anything?
Ben: That’s why I’m here. Susan’s in salem. She came to warn us that our baby’s in danger.
Marlena: In danger? What’s the matter with her? She won’t get away with this!
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Rafe: So can I get you a coffee, water?
Nicole: I’m–I’m good.
Rafe: Okay. So?
Nicole: So about last night–
Rafe: Yeah. Oh, just so you know, ava and tripp are here. They’re in the interrogation room. I brought her in to question her about carmine merlino’s murder.
Nicole: What did she say?
Rafe: Well, she said she had no idea where he came from, that he–he just came in and started ranting and raving and then he attacked her. And were not for her son, she wouldn’t be alive today.
Nicole: Tripp murdered carmine?
Rafe: No. Her other son. Charlie.
Philip: Where did you come from?
Kate: Well, I live here, so.
Lucas: I invited my brother here for a private lunch. Thank you.
Kate: Honey, that is so sweet. So what about brady and chloe?
Lucas: Well, as you know, you know, the other day philip was down in the dumps because chloe moved out?
Kate: Yeah, I know. And that’s when I said good riddance.
Lucas: Well, thank you for that amazing pep talk. We appreciate that, but it didn’t help. So after we walked it off, we actually did see brady and chloe going into the salem inn together.
Kate: Oh! Well, that was totally predictable, right?
Kate: What? I mean, you said yourself, chloe didn’t leave the house because her injury was better. She left because of brady. So what happened when you confronted her?
Philip: I didn’T.
Chloe: I’m sorry. What did you just say?
Brady: It sounded just as bad as I heard it in my head.
Chloe: What is going on with you?
Brady: Chloe, I swear, there’s a logical explanation.
Chloe: Okay. I’m listening.
Brady: You know that kristen was arrested, right?
Chloe: Yes, I heard. I’m–I’m sorry.
Brady: What you don’t know is that steve johnson caught kristen trying to kidnap rachel.
Chloe: Oh, my god.
Brady: But rachel’s fine. She’s fine. But she’s been asking a lot questions like, “when is mommy coming home? When is she coming back to go on our special trip?” And I don’t–I don’t know what the hell to tell her. I mean, I can’t tell her that her mother is an attempted kidnapper. I was struggling with what to tell and what not to tell her, so I asked marlena for advice. And marlena told me that–that I needed to be honest with myself before I’m honest with my daughter.
Chloe: About what?
Brady: Marlena believes that everything that went down with kristen is my fault.
Chloe: Your fault?
Brady: Yes, because I wasn’t honest with kristen about how I felt about you. And she went crazy with jealousy anyway. The assumption being that kristen knew that I wasn’t being honest with her. And marlena suggested that I was just hiding my feelings from you and–and from myself. I explained to her that I was simply trying to respect your decision to be with philip. And that’s when marlena suggested to me that I just get everything out in the open. That I come to the office and throw you on the conference table and just do what I do and then that’s–
Chloe: Okay, hold on. Let me get this straight. Marlena, dr. Marlena evans, your stepmother, told you to throw me on the conference table and have sex?
Brady: Exactly. Yeah.
Ben: Susan’s not getting away with what? Dr. Evans, I think she just might be trying to help in her own weird way.
Marlena: And how is she helping? By telling you and ciara that your baby is in danger? That’s–that’s absurd. She doesn’t know what she’s talking about.
Ben: Or maybe she does.
Marlena: What does that mean?
Ben: [Sighs] Dr. Evans, when everybody thought that ciara was dead and that I was crazy for thinking she was alive, susan banks confirmed it. If it wasn’t for her, I may have never found ciara. I may not have been married or expecting a baby. I mean, I’m always gonna be grateful to this woman. And I’m always gonna keep an open mind if she has something she wants to tell me.
Susan: Hey. Yeah.
Ciara: Please, susan! Just say something. Tell me who it is.
Susan: Oh, shoot. I lost it again!
Susan: Do you know what? I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I really want to help. I really, really do. I mean, that’s why I came all this way.
Ciara: Okay, well, then please, help me. Susan, tell me who the threat to my baby is!
Susan: Well, don’t you think I want to?! It’s–it’s just so much pressure! So much! Ciara, honey, my visions, they come when they’re good and ready. They did. And I just can’t force them. I just–I need to relax!
Ciara: Right, okay. All right, then please, please relax.
Susan: Okay, I’m gonna relax. I can’t do it if you’re staring holes straight into me.
Ciara: Oh, right, sorry.
Susan: Sit, sit, sit, sit.
Ciara: Okay, okay.
Susan: Thank you. Thank you. Good. All right.
[Inhales deeply] All right, I can do this. I can do this. I just need to get back to where I was before I fainted. Okay. Oh, lord, please help me. Okay. Ooh, it’s dark. It’s dark, dark, dark. It’s the purest evil. And it’s all clouded. It’s clouded. Oh, dark intentions are obscured and–oh, I see! I see, I see!
Ciara: What do you see?!
Susan: Oh, I see, I see. Oh, I see. I see–I see someone who claims that they care about people, but doesn’T. Someone who seeks only his own gratification. Oh, my goodness. He delights in spreading pain and suffering to those closest to him.
Ciara: Oh, my god. I think I know who it is. It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on
Lucas: You didn’t say anything to chloe?
Philip: No. Because I realized that I overreacted. Maybe she and brady were going into the salem inn ’cause he was helping her with her bags.
Kate: Oh, he was helping her with something, all right, but it wasn’t her bags.
Philip: Great. Do your worst, mom. But I am not biting. I have given up on the jealousy, the anger, and the paranoia. No more blowing up over nothing. So I didn’t mention that I saw them, which avoids the third degree. Why create a huge mess when it’s possible that nothing even happened that night?
Lucas: Maybe. But if that’s true, then why didn’t brady just say so?
Brady: I’m sorry the words even came out of my mouth. I–I opened the door, it was on my mind, I saw you. I’m sorry. I’m really sorry.
Chloe: It’s okay. It’s okay. Mm, that table has seen a lot of action.
Brady: Sorry, what?
Chloe: Never mind.
Brady: No, don’t– don’t never mind me. It sounded a lot like you said, “that table’s seen a lot of action.”
Chloe: I’m not saying another word.
Brady: Excuse me, you have to now, obviously. Was there–was there somebody having sex on this conference table besides us? I mean, we didn’t–we didn’T. You know what I mean. Come on!
Chloe: Okay, fine. One of our employees admitted to me that they had sex on that table last night.
Brady: Last night? Last night? That means it was someone who was working late. It was nicole, wasn’t it?
Nicole: So ava said charlie killed that guy?!
Rafe: Mm-hmm. Yeah. You see, ordinarily, I would think that she was lying to get out from under the charge, but, you know.
Nicole: But I saw a dead person too.
Nicole: Oh, and I’ve been trying to convince myself that I imagined deimos.
Rafe: Yeah, I’m right there with you. But it is weird that both you and ava, you both thought you saw a dead people on the same night.
Nicole: Well, it was halloween. And ava is as scared of charlie as I am of deimos, so maybe she did imagine him.
Rafe: Yeah. Except ava’s not the only one who swears she saw charlie. Tripp does as well.
Susan: Oh! Oh, my goodness. You–you know who the evil presence is? Are you psychic too, ciara?
Ciara: Oh, well, no, no. But based on what you just said, I think I have a hunch that it might be someone who’s very close to ben.
Marlena: Of course, you can be grateful to her, but it doesn’t mean you have to pay any attention to her–her half-baked visions.
Ben: What if she’s right? Dr. Evans, what if she’s right and everything that I’ve been afraid of this whole time comes true and I really am passing down my–
Marlena: Oh, ben. We’ve talked about this before. You are kind and caring. And you are–you are no danger to this baby.
Ben: And I really want to believe that. I do, but it wasn’t just what susan said. It’s what she did. She reached out and she put her hand on ciara’s stomach. And whatever susan was feeling, it caused her to faint. And it freaked me out. And that’s why I came to you.
Marlena: Well, I’m glad you came to me, uh, because the last thing that we need– the last thing that you need is some self-righteous fool trying to predict your future. And trust me, I will take care of susan.
Trelegy for copd.
Philip: You talked to brady?
Lucas: Yeah. Yeah, I did. I went to give him hell. You know, I told him that we saw him carrying chloe’s bag into the salem inn. And I asked him point blank if they slept together.
Kate: Okay. Did he admit anything?
Lucas: No. But he didn’t deny it either. He said that if philip wanted to know the truth, that philip should ask him himself.
Kate: Oh, my god. Well, you know, obviously, it’s true because he wouldn’t be dancing around like that if he didn’t want to be caught in a lie.
Philip: Or maybe he thought it was none of lucas’s business, which it isn’T. And it’s none of yours either, mother. What?!
Kate: What do you mean what? You know, I’m just afraid that–don’t tell me you’re gonna hide your head in the sand again about the whole fact that chloe’s cheating on you?
Philip: What, so you’re just gonna continue to incite me?
Kate: No, no, what I’m trying to do is get you to open your eyes to the fact that you’re once again involved with a lying, shallow phony who is going to hurt you again just like she did in the past.
Philip: And speaking of the past, your jealousy has led you to some very dark places. I don’t want that to happen to me.
Kate: I have no idea what you’re referring to.
Philip: Where to start? How about the poison brownies you gave chloe when she cheated on lucas with your ex-boyfriend daniel?
Lucas: Not to put too fine a point on it.
Chloe: I will not confirm nor deny–
Brady: You don’t have to. I’m totally right, aren’t I? Aren’t I? See, yep, yep. I can’t believe it. I told her–no, I told her that ej was gonna be bad news, and she didn’t even listen to me, so–
Brady: No. I mean, what, they’ve been on two dates? I mean, I know they were married before, but–
Brady: Chloe, she’s vulnerable right now. You know, the divorce and everything. He’s totally taking advantage of her; it’s ridiculous.
Chloe: Ej didn’t–
Brady: You know he did. He obviously did. And I’ll tell you what, I don’t know where the hell he gets off, that’s for sure.
Chloe: Well, if you’d just listen to me.
Brady: Oh, someone’s gonna listen; it’s ej, and he’s gonna get a piece of my freaking–what are you– what are you doing?!
Chloe: It wasn’t ej. It was rafe.
Nicole: Well, do you think tripp lied about seeing charlie to protect his mom?
Rafe: Well, he is protective of ava, but I don’t think he’d come up with a story like this, not dragging allie into it.
Nicole: Allie also saw him?
Rafe: Oh, yeah. Apparently, charlie was at your apartment.
Nicole: Oh, my god. I haven’t even talked to allie since all this happened. Is she okay? And henry?
Rafe: She’s okay. Henry’s okay. Luckily, henry was with roman. But it was scary, you know? When tripp showed up at the apartment, charlie was attacking allie. He had intentions of killing both of them, and well, luckily, tripp was able to overpower him. He thought he killed him, and then–
Nicole: Oh, let me guess. He disappeared just like deimos.
Nicole: This is so creepy.
Nicole: So now what?
Rafe: Well– how are you even gonna verify everyone’s stories?
Rafe: That’s a good question. So I sent a squad over to check out the graves, first of all.
Nicole: You know, last night, you were pretty sure that ava killed carmine and it was over between you. But what if this is all somehow true and ava didn’t kill him? Oh, my god, rafe. We made a terrible mistake.
Ciara: Well, this is clyde weston, ben’s father. He did some pretty terrible things, and he’s in prison now. But could he be the evil presence you’re feeling? You think he’s the one trying to harm my baby?
Susan: Hmm. I mean, I do get bad vibes off of him. And I mean, he looks mean, mean, mean, but is he out to harm your baby? No, no. I don’t think so. I don’T. Uh-uh. I’m sorry, ciara.
Ciara: Oh, it’s all right. Well, so now what?
Susan: You know what? Okay. Would you mind if I tried one more time?
Ciara: No. Of course, please.
Susan: Okay, okay.
[Breathes deeply] Oh! Oh! Oh, I feel it! I feel it to the marrow of my soul! I feel it! It’s an overpowering evil!
Ciara: From where? Susan, from where?! Who is it?! Please.
Marlena: Take your hands off that baby right now!
Susan: Oh, dr. Marlena evans, as I live and breathe.
Marlena: You won’t be breathing much longer if you don’t do as I say.
Susan: I’m just so glad you’re here. Thank you. Thank you so much for coming. Thank you for bringing her. I really appreciate that. You know what, if anyone, if anyone can help us on this quest to find out who’s behind this danger and doom that I’ve been feeling all the way back in memphis, it is dr. Marlena evans.
Marlena: I’m not here to help you. I’m here to stop you!
Susan: Stop me? Why?
Marlena: Can’t you see what you’re doing?
Susan: I’m just–I’m trying to helping ben and ciara.
Marlena: You’re not helping. You’re scaring them! And that won’t do. Look, this couple has to stay calm and serene because their main focus is giving birth to this very special child.
Kate: I’m just trying to protect you, okay?
Philip: I don’t need your protection, mom. Chloe’s the woman for me. The only reason she moved out was because my jealousy was so out of control, so no more jealousy.
Kate: Okay, you can jump in anytime with some words of wisdom, okay?
Lucas: Nah, I’m okay. I’m staying out of it.
Philip: I’m gonna be the man chloe wants me to be. I’m gonna romance her. I’m gonna show her how I feel. You know, most importantly, I’m going to trust her. From now on. And hopefully, we can put this all behind us. And if I’m lucky, she’ll move back in with me.
Brady: Rafe? Rafael and nicole?
Brady: Okay. I thought he was living with ava vitali.
Chloe: Well, according to nicole, rafe says it’s over with ava.
Brady: Uh-huh, and he just happened to show up on halloween night when nicole was working here and–
Chloe: I don’t–I don’t know. It’s none of our business.
Brady: It’s kind of our business because this is kind of our office. That’s kind of our table.
Chloe: Oh, brady, please just drop it, okay? Forget I said anything. I promised nicole I wouldn’T. But you just–you have a way of getting things out of me.
Brady: Well, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to make you betray a confidence, chloe.
Chloe: Okay. You didn’t “make” me. I take full responsibility for my big mouth, but now I feel like a bad friend. So please, you–you cannot breathe a word of this to anyone, okay? Please?
Rafe: Last night wasn’t a mistake. What happened between us wasn’t because ava killed carmine. It was just an excuse.
Nicole: I don’t understand.
Rafe: I’ve been trying to do the right thing. I have, you know, to keep distance between us, ’cause that’s what we agreed to do, right? But it’s been hell. It’s been hell, because I can’t–I can’t get you out of my head. All I do is think about you. You are in my heart.
Rafe: I don’t–I don’t know if you saw deimos or not. And I don’t know if ava, tripp, or allie, I don’t know if they saw charlie. But what I do know is what happened is what I’ve wanted to happen. Nothing else matters.
Nicole: It does matter, rafe. It changes everything. My nunormal?
Nicole: Last night, you thought the worst of ava. You thought she killed carmine and was reverting back to her old ways, but now that we know charlie is real or at least as real as a zombie can be…
Rafe: I know.
Nicole: What if ava is telling the truth and that she wasn’t hiding him? Look, then all your assumptions of her lying to you, they could be wrong.
Rafe: Okay, nicole, again, it’s not about ava.
Nicole: No, this is about ava.
Rafe: No, it’s not. It’s–
Nicole: Yes, it’s about ava, because I know you care about her. And ava cares about you.
Nicole: And I know how terrified she was last night because of that monster beyond the grave or… she was desperate. And she needed you, and you weren’t there, because you were making love to me.
Kate: Well, hey, at least you’re not involved with this one anymore, right?
Philip: Why did you invite mom to lunch?
Lucas: I didn’T.
Kate: Hey, look, I’m just saying. I mean, ava vitali kills her former associate who also shot abe and then blames it on her dead son, I mean, that is some kind of crazy. I’m just glad you’re far away from it. That’s all.
Philip: All right, I’m done here.
Philip: Thanks for lunch.
Kate: What? What? Okay, something I said?
Philip: I’ve just got someplace to be.
Kate: Please tell me that you’re not gonna go see chloe.
Kate: Oh, philip.
Brady: I won’t say a word to anyone. I promise. I promise. It’s not like I want to make your life more difficult than I already have.
Chloe: What are you talking about?
Brady: The other night, when I helped you move into the salem inn, I’m sure philip just gave you a bunch of grief about that, right?
Chloe: Actually, he didn’T.
Brady: Oh. You got my voice mail, though, like, warning you that he might be furious, right?
Chloe: I did. But he didn’t seem furious in the least. In fact, he showed up at the inn, he surprised me, and we had a really pleasant evening together. He didn’t say a word.
Brady: You’re kidding me, right?
Chloe: No. Honestly, seriously, he has not mentioned it since.
Chloe: Yeah. I’m hoping that this means he’s finally gonna take the high road and not let his jealousy get the best of him, and he finally trusts me and believes when I say that you and I are just friends.
Susan: I would never, ever, ever do anything to hurt ben and ciara.
Ciara: She was only trying to help.
Marlena: And–and now look at you, you’re all upset. You should be having nothing buy joy in your lives right now. And then susan had to come and upset you with this ridiculous story.
Susan: Oh, my god. I know what I felt.
Marlena: I know you mean well. But this nonsense has to stop. Do you understand? Good. Thank you for letting me help you through all this. Why don’t you take care of ciara, and I’ll–I’ll take care of susan. Come with me. Now.
To be a thriver with
metastatic breast cancer
Rafe: Yeah. Yes, ava needed me. But you needed me too.
Nicole: Did ava try calling you when you were with me?
Nicole: And when you spoke to her earlier, did she ask you where you were last night, why you didn’t pick up or call her back?
Rafe: She did.
Nicole: And what did you tell her?
Rafe: Nothing. I mean, not about us, all right, you know? I was going to tell her, but then tripp came in, and he derailed the conversation. But I am gonna tell her. I’m gonna tell her the truth. I’m gonna tell her everything.
Nicole: No! You can’t!
Ben: That was pretty intense, huh, with susan? You okay?
Ciara: Yeah. I’m okay.
Ciara: Yeah, I’m okay. Are you okay?
Ben: Yeah. What’s this doing out?
Ciara: I–I asked susan if the evil she felt affecting our child had anything to do with clyde.
Ben: What did she say?
Ciara: She said no, that it wasn’t him. That evil presence she’s feeling is not related to you, it’s not clyde, it’s someone else.
Susan: You know, I didn’t mean to upset you. I was just trying to help.
Marlena: Well, you didn’t help. You scared those kids. And the ideas of you put in their heads–that’s detrimental to them and to this baby.
Susan: I present no danger to that baby.
Marlena: I’ll be the judge of that. In the meantime, I want you to stay away from them.
Susan: Stay away? But, dr. Evans, this is a storm like no one else has ever seen. And that baby is the center of it. I can–I can feel all of it.
Marlena: Stop it. That’s enough. I don’t want you going anywhere near them. You are to stay away from them. Do you understand?
Susan: With all due respect, what the heck do you know?
[Scoffs] Marlena: How dare you speak to me like that?
Susan: I’ll tell you how I dare. I feel things that no one else feels. I see things like no one else sees. And I sense evil coming for that baby. And if I–i can’t live with myself if I didn’t speak up about it.
Kate: You know, you could’ve been a little more of a help with your brother.
Lucas: You mean I could have taken your side?
Kate: No, you could just have agreed with me that chloe is a lying, cheating little slut. I mean, actually, brady didn’t deny that something happened between them, right?
Lucas: You know what? Maybe I shouldn’t have said anything at all. Maybe philip was right. Maybe chloe deserves the benefit of the doubt.
Kate: You’re joking, right?
Lucas: And unlike you, I don’t choose to see the worst in chloe.
Kate: Oh, that’s so noble. But it’s also foolish and laughable, because just like I have damn good reason to distrust chloe, so do you.
Brady: Look, especially for your sake, I hope that philip has gotten some control over his trust issues, because that would make your life a lot easier, but…
Chloe: But what?
Brady: The philip I know, he would lose his mind if he thought you and I had sex. Why give your family just ordinary eggs
Kate: Your naivete truly boggles the mind.
Lucas: Right, I’m naive because I’m giving someone the benefit of the doubt?
Kate: Well, if they don’t deserve it, they don’t deserve it. Do you remember how chloe cheated on you with daniel jonas? Do you remember how devastated you were, how furious, how humiliated?
Lucas: Oh, you’re one to judge, aren’t you? Do you remember when you slept with jack when he was married to jennifer?
Kate: Actually, I do recall that. Do you recall recently having sex with a certain married lady named samantha dimera?
Lucas: What’s the point, huh?
Kate: Yeah, I think the point is pretty obvious. Point is ex sex.
Lucas: Oh, okay.
Kate: That got you and sami back in the sack together, didn’t it? Well, who’s to say it didn’t happen between chloe and brady?
Lucas: All right, fine. I will concede that there is a possibility of that. There is.
Lucas: And if this crazy plan of yours is true, if they’re really getting together, well, then you know what? Philip is gonna lose it. He is gonna blow sky high. I know it.
Chloe: How about we stop talking about philip and we get back to work?
Brady: That’s–that’s a good idea.
Chloe: And, brady, seriously, I mean it, you cannot tell anybody what happened here last night. I mean–
Brady: I know–I know what you mean. I know. You’re referring to the sex that happened on the conference table. Okay, listen, I’m–I’m not gonna tell a soul about it. It’ll be our secret, okay?
Nicole: If you tell ava the truth, it will break her heart. And I can’t let you do that.
Rafe: I’m not gonna lie to her.
Nicole: I’m not asking you to.
Rafe: Okay. Then what are you asking?
Nicole: I’m just asking you not to tell her or anyone else. And–and neither will I.
Rafe: So what? Like, that’s it?
Nicole: Rafe, I–i betrayed my husband. And it was a terrible mistake. I am not gonna betray my best friend. I don’t want to be that kind of person. And I’m pretty sure you don’t either. And I can already see how this is gonna play out, the guilt, the lies, the hurt, the self-loathing. And who knows? We could end up hating each other.
Rafe: No, no, no. No, I can never hate you.
Nicole: I know what we have to do. We have to forget this ever happened.
Rafe: No. No, nicole, I am not gonna let it end like this. I’m not. I’m not.
Nicole: I’m not giving you a choice.
Rafe: What are you–
Nicole: I can’T.
Rafe: Nicole. What… mm. Damn.
Susan: Dr. Marlena evans, I care for ben weston and ciara brady-weston as much as you do. But–but what–what is coming for them, it’s a real doozy. And–and it’s just too big and too, too dark and too powerful for even a big-deal psychiatrist like yourself to handle on their own.
Marlena: How dare you presume to tell me what I can and can’t handle?
Susan: I just meant that–
Marlena: I am just fine. I’ve been doing just fine managing great without your help. So why don’t you go back to memphis? I’m sure that roger misses you.
Susan: No. No. I will not go back home to memphis, not until I figure out what this dark thing is that’s surrounding that little baby. You know what? I don’t care if you approve or not.
Marlena: You’re not going anywhere.
Susan: Lord almighty. Oh… it’s you.
