Ciara: [Groans]

Ben: This is all normal morning sickness, right?

Ciara: Mm, I mean, it’s not morning, but yes. They say that this is a sign of a healthy pregnancy.

Ben: Still no fun.

Ciara: Mm, tell me about it, but it’ll all be worth it in the end.

Ben: Yes, it will.

Ciara: Yeah.

Ben: For now, I have a little something that might help. Huh?

Ciara: [Chuckles] Another gift for the baby?

Ben: Mm-mm.

Ciara: You know, our child is already spoiled.

Ben: Uh-uh, uh-uh. This one is for mama. Happy anniversary.

Ciara: [Chuckles]

[Suspenseful music]

Steve: [Grunting]

Susan: [Whimpering]

Steve: God, susan, what did you do?

Susan: I had no choice.

Marlena: Doug, I understand how frustrated you are, but calling names isn’t going to help anything.

Doug: I wasn’T. Literally is now the devil.

Belle: What?

Kayla: Doug, what are you saying?

Marlena: Kayla, now do you see why he has to be medicated? You of all people can see that he’s talking nonsense. He’s delusional.

Julie: I don’t think so.

Marlena: Excuse me?

Julie: As crazy as it sounds, after everything that’s happened, I believe my husband.

Shawn: You believe that– that marlena is the devil?

Marlena: Oh, oh, julie I–

Julie: No, if I had listened to what doug said about you in the first place, none of this would’ve happened, marlena. Or should I call you satan?

[Unsettling music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Ej: [Clears throat] You–you want to play my sister kristen? Are you–are you sure about that?

Anna: Well, why not? It’s a meaty part.

Ej: [Laughs] Oh, it’s–it’s quite meaty. I was just reading the scene where john discovers kristen naked in the church, covered in pentagrams.

Anna: Oh, I love that scene.

[Laughs] What’s your point?

Ej: Well, john takes off his shirt to cover her, and it leads to some… fraught moments.

Anna: Yes, I remember. Got me all hot and bothered just thinking about it and reading it in the script.

Ej: Yes, and I assume you’re aware that the actor playing john black is…

Tony: You.

Ej: Exactly. Are you suggesting you’re comfortable with me seducing your wife?

[Dramatic music]

Steve: Oh, god.

John: Hey, buddy, thank god.

Steve: How’d this happen?

John: She did it to herself.

Steve: What? Why?

John: She’s trying to protect her son.

Steve: I’m gonna get you some help, susan. Hold on. Who locked you in here, john? Was it marlena? I’m not getting any reception.

John: Get her up to the house before she bleeds out.

Steve: No, what about you?

John: I’ll live. Get her out of here. Go.

Steve: Okay, here we go. Here we go. Okay, come here.

Doug: Julie is right.

Kayla: Doug, don’t tax yourself.

Doug: I’m fine, finally.

Julie: This explains everything– why you kept doug locked up in a–a padded room, strung out on drugs, separated from all of us who love him.

Marlena: Kayla, can you just put a stop to this, please? And, shawn, please, talk some sense into your grandmother?

Shawn: No, actually, what my grandmother’s saying is making a strange kind of sense.

Marlena: Sense?

[Tense music]

Belle. My sweet girl. You don’t believe this about your mother, do you, because this is just nonsense.

Belle: Well, I might think it was nonsense if it hadn’t happened before.

Marlena: It can’t happen again. John cast the devil out of me.

Julie: Did he? John was never a consecrated priest.

Marlena: Belle… look at me. I’m your mother. Please, please, please tell me you don’t believe this.

Belle: I’d like to hear what else doug has to say.

Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

Ciara: Baby, you’re aware that it’s not our anniversary, right?

Ben: Well, it’s not our wedding anniversary, but as far as I’m concerned, thanksgiving four years ago was one of the most important days of my life.

Ciara: Four years ago…

[Laughs] I had just broken up with tripp.

Ben: Yes, you did. And I ran into you outside of the pub. You remember? Can’t ride without these.

Ciara: Thanks.

Ben: Well, I should probably get going. It’s good to see you.

Ciara: Wait. Of course I remember.

Ben: That bike, to you, represented your family, represented your freedom.

Ciara: And it represented my future, because I didn’t know it yet, but that bike is why we are together.

Ben: Hmm. Open it.

Ciara: Okay.

[Laughs] Well, it’s a little small, don’t you think?

Ben: I think it’s the perfect size.

Ciara: Wait. Ben weston, is this a motorcycle helmet for a baby?

Ben: Okay, I know I told you the present wasn’t for the kid, because it really is for you.

Ciara: Oh my gosh, baby, it’s adorable. It is so sweet. Oh!

Ben: I want you to know that our life is gonna be very different eight months from now. But it’s okay because all the things that truly matter are never gonna change.

Ciara: Can a baby even ride on a motorcycle?

Ben: I don’t think they’d be able to really drive on their own. Maybe they could. I–

Ciara: Oh, my gosh. You know what I mean.

Ben: Technically, there’s no age limit, but of course we’re gonna take every precaution.

Ciara: And you actually did your research on this.

Ben: Of course I did my research. Dads need to know this kind of stuff. Go ahead, try me. Ask me about crib regulations.

Ciara: [Laughs] You know I really, really love you, right?

[Tender music]

Marlena: Belle, you certainly can’t believe–

Belle: You haven’t been yourself since shawn and i got back from south africa.

Marlena: Why would you say that?

Belle: For starters, you dressed up as the devil on halloween.

Kayla: What?

Marlena: It was a costume, a halloween costume.

Belle: Well, it was an odd choice, given your past.

Marlena: No, I was just trying to show support for johnny’s movie.

Belle: Well, what about the way you treated that poor black cat that you took to the pound?

Marlena: [Gasps] To the shelter.

Belle: It’s like you didn’t care if it lived or died.

Marlena: Well, I’m not a cat person, but I wouldn’t do that.

Julie: Oh, why are we debating this? You all heard doug.

Marlena: Doug is not in his right mind. Kayla, come on. You’re rational.

Kayla: I am also a cradle catholic, and my faith tells me that there is evil in the world.

Marlena: So do you think that you’re talking to the devil right now?

Kayla: Steve and I tried to get ahold of you for days, and you did everything in your power to ignore us.

Marlena: Oh, for heaven’s sake, I was busy. I explained that to you.

Kayla: We didn’t believe a word you said.

Marlena: So you think I’m lying?

Doug: That’s all you do. That’s who you are.

Kayla: There is a reason that your entire family is concerned about you.

Marlena: By that, you mean shawn and belle?

Kayla: No, I’m talking about your husband. John was so determined to find out what was going on with you. He listened to the tape of your therapy session with doug.

Doug: The therapy session?

Marlena: That is a violation of my patient’s confidentiality.

Kayla: Well, not in this case, actually, because john said he couldn’t hear doug’s voice on the tape…

Julie: What?

Kayla: And that you sounded scared, marlena.

Marlena: Because–I’m sorry, but you think I’m afraid of a 96-year-old man?

Julie: No, afraid… of evil incarnate.

[Unsettling music]

Ciara: [Sighs] A human being is going to wear this, a little tiny human being that we created.

Ben: Mm-hmm. And to think it all started four thanksgivings ago.

Ciara: Oh. I… I might… I might feel something more than– more than friendship for you. Understatement of the decade.

Ben: Here’s the deal. If you’re too broken to love or be loved, what does that mean for someone like me?

Ciara: I’m sorry, I didn’t–

Ben: No, no, it’s all right. Because as messed up as I am, I know there are far crazier people than me who do find love. So I’m not giving up hope. And you can’t either. I won’t let you.

[Tender music]

Ciara: Our first kiss. Was it really that long ago?

Ben: You know, in a way, it feels like yesterday.

Ciara: And in other ways, it feels like a lifetime, baby.

Marlena: Evil incarnate?

Julie: In human form. You know, lucifer, beelzebub, old scratch.

Doug: Satan.

Belle: You did something to my father, didn’t you?

Marlena: Do you think I would ever hurt my husband, the man that I love?

Julie: Oh, stop the acting. You are not marlena.

Marlena: He would be very upset to hear you talk to me like this.

Kayla: Then where is he?

Marlena: He’s on a mission. I’ve explained that.

Kayla: Steve said it seems like he fell off the face of the earth.

Marlena: He’s undercover. That’s how it works.

Shawn: You know what? I think that we should continue this conversation down at the station.

Marlena: You’re arresting me? For what? Belle? Belle, are you going to let your husband do this to me?

Belle: You left him no choice.

Marlena: You’re going to be sorry you did this. You’re all going to be very sorry you did this.

Anna: Ej, you do understand that people don’t actually have sex when they’re shooting a love scene in a movie, not this kind of movie, anyway. It’s called acting.

Ej: I understand, yes.

[Door rattling] What’s that?

[Tense music]

Steve: Here you go.

Susan: [Moans]

Ej: Oh, my god, mother. What the hell did you do to her?

Ever notice how stiff clothes can feel rough on your skin?

Ej: What the hell did you do, johnson?

Steve: Call an ambulance. Now!

Ej: Hold on, mother. Help is on the way.

Tony: What happened, steve?

Steve: I found her like this in the crypt.

Anna: What were you doing out there?

Steve: I was looking for john.

Tony: In the family crypt?

Steve: Yes, he was locked inside with susan. He’s still chained up. You need to go get him out of there. Now! Go!

Ej: [Sighs]

Steve: Ej, come. Help me slow down this bleeding.

Ej: Aye.

Steve: There you go.

Ej: Hold on, mother. Help is coming. You’re gonna be fine.

[Dramatic music]

Ben: That thanksgiving was one of the happiest days of my life… until a year later, when I find myself on trial for my own sister’s murder. Then a year after that, I was in statesville. I can’t believe that you left your family on thanksgiving to come to this godforsaken place.

Ciara: Well, ben, this godforsaken place is where you are. And you’re family now too.

[Tender music]

I never lost hope that you would come home.

Ben: I wouldn’t be here if you didn’t fight so hard for me.

Ciara: Mm.

Ben: You saved my life.

Ciara: I got lucky, babe. I spent a lot of time trying to prove something that ended up to be wrong.

Ben: But you were the one who ultimately figured out the truth. You’re the only one who never, ever stopped believing in me.

Ciara: Mm.

Ben: You never gave up on me.

Ciara: Just like you never gave up on me.

Ben: Actually, I did.

Tony: Oh, my god, john.

John: Help me. [Groans]

Tony: I’ve got to find something to cut these chains. Anna! Anna!

Anna: Stand back.

John: No, no, no! No!

[Chains rattle]

Shawn: Okay, let’s go.

Marlena: This is unacceptable. You all know that.

Julie: You really think handcuffs are gonna hold satan?

Shawn: I don’t have very many options, but I mean, this seems to be working.

Marlena: Because I’m not who you think I am.

[Cell phone beeps]

Kayla: [Gasps] Oh, thank god.

Belle: What–what is it?

Kayla: Steve found john.

Belle: Is he okay?

Kayla: He doesn’t say. He just says to meet him at the hospital.

Belle: The hospital? I’m–I’m coming with you.

Kayla: Okay. Shawn?

Shawn: I’ve got everything under control here.

Marlena: Ah, ah, give john my love. Tell him I’ll see him soon.

[Tense music]

Shawn: All right, come on. Let’s go.

Marlena: You know, just– just out of curiosity, what are you gonna tell your boss about why you hauled me in?

Shawn: Well, if it turns out that john is injured and you had something to do with it, then I guess–guess we’ll start there.

Marlena: And when it turns out that I’m innocent?

Shawn: Then I’ll happily apologize to you but down at the station.

Julie: Please just get her out of our house.

Shawn: Okay, let’s go.

Marlena: Do you really think you can make me go someplace I don’t want to go?

[Unsettling music]

Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

Ben: As much as I hate to say this, the truth is, I did give up on you.

Ciara: What do you mean?

Ben: When they first all told me that you were dead, I believed them. I lost hope. That holiday, I just felt like i had nothing to be thankful for. I took off on the bike, went to the woods, tried to find some way to feel closer to you. I sat by the lake and I screamed out your name. The only thing that I heard back was the echo of my own voice.

Ciara: Mm. You may not have felt me, babe, but I heard you. And not just that day, every single day that we were apart. On thanksgiving, rhodes brought me this, like, turkey sandwich. And I told him that no matter how grim things were in that horrible little fishbowl, I was very thankful to be alive. Because being alive meant that maybe one day, you’d find me and we’d be together again.

[Soft music]

Ben: God blessed us. He gave us another chance at a life together. I’m never gonna give up on you again or on our baby.

John: I feel like my shoulders are broken.

Tony: That’s it. That’s it. Just–just a little further.

John: I’ve got it, thanks.

Anna: John, just sit there. Sit there, and let me get you some–here’s some water.

John: [Groans]

Tony: Who did this to you? Who chained you up in the crypt?

Anna: Here, can you take small sips?

John: Thanks.

Anna: Was it that kook susan banks? Did she do that to you?

Tony: Why would susan do that?

Anna: Well, because she was obsessed with him, and maybe she’s gone round the bend again.

John: Nah, no. Wasn’t susan. Marlena.

Tony: What?

Anna: Why would marlena?

John: Because… she’s possessed again.

Tony: What?

Anna: Possessed as in…

John: Yeah.

Tony: That can’t be.

John: Yeah. The devil wanted susan to kill me.

Anna: Dear god.

John: Yeah. He threatened susan that he was gonna kill ej if she didn’t go through with it.


Tony: He threatened to kill my brother?

Anna: But why him?

John: Because he knew that susan would do anything to save her son.

Anna: Okay, but why– how did she get hurt?

John: Instead of stabbing me, she stabbed herself.

[Dramatic music]

[Knock at door]

[Monitor beeping]

Steve: How’s she doing?

Ej: They say she’s stable, but I haven’t gotten a lot of information.

Steve: Well, I just talked to my son tripp, and he said that she’s very lucky that the knife didn’t damage any major organs.

Ej: So they think she’ll make a full recovery?

Steve: Looks that way.

Ej: [Sighs] Thank god. Look, I’m–I want to thank you for what you did for my mother, and I’m sorry for–

Steve: No, no, no, forget about it, man. I’m just glad she’s okay.

Susan: Ej? Ej, is that you, honey?

Ej: Yes, mother, it’s me.

Susan: Ah!

Ej: I’m here.

Susan: Oh, praise the lord. Oh, my goodness, she said she was gonna kill you.

Ej: Who?

Susan: Dr. Marlena evans. But she’s not dr. Marlena evans.

Steve: What do you mean, susan?

Susan: Oh, hey, steve.

Steve: Yeah. Tell me what you meant.

Susan: I meant she is the devil.

Ej: Oh, mother. I think you’re confused. We’re not talking about johnny’s horror movie. That isn’t real.

Steve: I wouldn’t be so sure.

[Electricity buzzing]

[Suspenseful music]

Julie: Dear god.

Demon marlena: Not exactly. Also not the thanksgiving you had in mind, am I right?

Shawn: Stay back, grandma.

Demon marlena: All that meal planning and napkin folding. You know, none of this would have to happen if you just left doug where he was. But now I’m forced to inflict more pain and more suffering on your entire family.

Julie: Leave us alone.

Demon marlena: Can’t do it. Don’t want to do it.

Shawn: [Grunts] Ow!

Doug: Satan, leave my grandson out of it.

Shawn: I’m not afraid of you.

Demon marlena: Then you’re even dumber than I thought you were.

Julie: Shawn!

[Glass shattering]


Demon marlena: Leave him. I’ve got such big plans for the two of you.

Julie: Not today, satan.

[Cell phone beeps]

Steve: Okay, kayla’s on her way up. You hang in there. We’re pulling for you.

Ej: Thank you.

Susan: Thank you, steve.

Ej: Mother, how did this happen? Did marlena stab you?

Susan: The devil–the devil wanted me to kill john black. And he said I had to do it, or else.

Ej: He wants to kill me.

Susan: Oh, baby. I couldn’t kill john black in cold blood because he’s a good, decent man. He is, and he’s the love of dr. Marlena evans’ life. Oh, sweetheart, I was so frightened for you. I was. And that devil, he insisted that there be a dead body when he came back, or else he was gonna do it. And so… I thought maybe if–

[Sighs] Maybe if he needed a human sacrifice, maybe he would accept mine.

Ej: You were willing to die for me?

Susan: Course I was, silly.

[Chuckles] You’re my baby boy. [Laughs] Oh, honey, I’d do anything for you. Maybe even vote for a democrat.

[Both chuckle] A mom always protects her child. I’d gladly do it all over again, son. I love you.

Ej: I love you too, mother.

[Soft music]

Ben: Mm.

Ciara: [Sighs]

Ben: After all these years, we finally have our first real thanksgiving together.

Ciara: Mm. No wonder I didn’t know you didn’t like pumpkin pie.

Ben: Oh, does this change everything?

Ciara: Oh, yeah. Totally, babe. I can’t be with someone who doesn’t like pumpkin pie.

Ben: [Groans] Well, could we at least have a toast, though, over a ginger ale?

Ciara: Absolutely, we can.

Ben: Good. Because… I don’t know what I did to deserve it, but I thank god that I have you.

Ciara: Mm. And I feel the same. Next year, it’s gonna be the three of us.

Ben: Mm.

Ciara: You, me, and our little angel.

[Dramatic music]

Kayla: Oh, hey. Hi.

Steve: Sweetness.

Kayla: There you are.

Steve: Belle.

Belle: Hey.

Steve: [Sighs] I don’t know how to tell you this.

Kayla: We know. Marlena’s possessed.

Steve: You know?

Belle: Where’s my dad? Is he okay?

Steve: Yeah, yeah, he’s all right. I found him in the dimera family crypt.

Kayla: The crypt?

Belle: Wait, that’s where he’s been this whole time?

Steve: It looks that way. I didn’t have time to ask questions. Susan banks was stabbed. I had to get her help.

Kayla: Susan? How did she get mixed up in all this?

Steve: Apparently, she had some–some kind of vibe that the devil was inside marlena. Obviously, john knew too, but it was too late.

Kayla: And so did doug. That’s why marlena had him locked up at bayview.

Belle: Wait, you didn’t just leave him in the crypt, did you?

Steve: No, no, I sent tony and anna in there to get him.

[Sighs] I would have assumed that he–he’d be here by now.

John: [Groans, sighs] Susan, so–

Anna: She was alive when steve brought her in here. He and ej took her to the hospital.

Tony: Yes, we’ll find out how she’s doing once we get you there.

John: I’m not going to any stinking hospital.

Anna: John, you’ve been locked up for weeks. You need to let them look at you.

John: No, I need to find doc.

Anna: Well, she’s a doctor. Maybe a hospital is the best place to look for her.

John: No, she is out there somewhere doing god knows what.

[Cell phone rings]

Anna: Hello?

Belle: Anna, hey, it’s belle brady. Did you find my dad?

Anna: Yes, we did. He’s here at the mansion with us.

Belle: Is he okay?

Anna: Well, he’s a little the worse for wear and stubborn as ever, but he’s all right.

Belle: Oh, god. Thank god. Well, please tell him I know where my mom is.

Anna: Oh, john, she knows where marlena is. Where, belle?

Belle: She crashed doug and julie’s thanksgiving dinner. Shawn cuffed her and took her to the police station.

John: What’s going on?

Anna: Well, she crashed doug and julie’s thanksgiving dinner, and shawn is taking her to the police station.

John: No, no, no, no, no, no. Tell belle to have shawn just–just–just stand down. Do not antagonize marlena.

Anna: Belle? Belle? Belle? I’m sorry, she’s gone.

John: [Groans]

[Eerie music]

Julie: You’ve tortured my husband enough. You’re not gonna lay a finger on him.

Demon marlena: I don’t have to. I’ve been inside your husband. I know that he is weak and feeble, which made him a perfect vessel.

Julie: No!

Demon marlena: Don’t you understand what happened in that therapy session? Doug came in to see marlena to help him with his dementia. And then I had a perfect opportunity to just slip into this.

Julie: I don’t believe it.

Demon marlena: Really? Who do you think hit you over the head with a hospital tray? I should’ve finished you both when I had the chance. But better late than never.

[Unsettling music]

Julie: I have loved this man for over 50 years. I will continue to love him all the days of our lives that we have left, and I would rather die than see you strike him down again.

Demon marlena: That can be arranged.

Julie: Oh, I know you. I know you have the power to break a pair of handcuffs. You even have the power to– to crawl into an honest, beautiful man and–and a beautiful, kind woman to wreak your chaos. But I know you. I know you’re nothing but an odious, lying trickster. And I have a power too, a power that you have forsaken eons ago. It’s the power of love.

Demon marlena: No.

Julie: God is love, satan. And god stands with those who love.

Demon marlena: Stop talking.

Julie: Love is what gives us our souls. Love is what makes us human. And after all your evil and all your destruction is forgotten, it’s love–unbreakable, everlasting–that will prevail. The god of love is stronger than your hatred and stronger than your lies. You cannot defeat us. And now that the truth is out, now that everyone knows you for the loathsome creature that you are, now that the truth is visible, the walls are going to close in, and it’s over.

Demon marlena: It will never be over.

To be a thriver with

metastatic breast cancer

Ej: You were a cat?

Susan: Mm-hmm. You know what? That wasn’t actually so bad, apart from the hairballs.

[Both laugh] But then– oh, my goodness, then the devil, he possessed me, and he turned me into the evil, evil, evil kristen dimera, and he wanted me to– you know, I just can’t do this anymore. I can’T.

Ej: I’m so sorry that you had to go through all of that, but it’s over now.

Susan: Is it?

Ej: Yes. You’re safe.

Susan: Yeah, but, sweetheart, I mean, I didn’t die. And I didn’t kill john black. I mean, sure, the devil could still come after you.

Ej: I don’t want you to worry about that.

Susan: You know what? I promise you this. If that devil wants to get back at you, he’s gonna have to go through me, because I am one tough lady.

Ej: [Laughs] Yes, you are. Yes, you are.

Susan: Oh, elvis, I love you with all my heart.

[Soft music]

Ej: I love you too, mother.

Steve: I know we’ve heard the stories about the last time it happened.

Kayla: I know, and it’s not like I didn’t believe it.

Steve: And it’s a whole lot different being here to witness it.

Kayla: So what happens now? I mean, what do we do next?

Steve: I don’t know, sweetness. For now, I’m just grateful we’re all safe.

Kayla: Yeah.

Anna: Belle?

Belle: Anna.

Anna: Oh, I’m so sorry. We–we tried to bring your father in here so he could be checked out, but he gave us the slip in the parking lot.

Belle: What, he–he’s gone?

Tony: You know your father. He’s single-minded in his determination to get to marlena.

[Tense music]

John: Doc! What the hell?

Julie: John. We’re okay. We’re okay.

John: Good. Good. Shawn?

Shawn: Look, I’ll be–I’ll be all right, all right? But marlena’s gone.

John: Damn it! I knew she wouldn’t let you take her to the station. Do you know where she went?

Shawn: No, she’s–she said something about fulfilling her true purpose.

John: Oh, my god.

Ciara: [Sighs]

Ben: Feeling any better?

Ciara: Yeah. I’m a little better, but I’m still tired. You know, the good thing about pregnancy is that you always have an excuse to take a nap.

Ben: [Chuckles] Who needs an excuse? You want some company?

Ciara: Well, who needs an excuse to get into bed with you?

Ben: [Chuckles]

[Tender music]

[Knock at door]
