Update written by Joseph

Ben and Ciara talk at home about Ciara having morning sickness. They agree that it will all be worth it in the end. Ben says he has something that might help and surprises her with a present for their anniversary.

Steve goes to the DiMera Crypt but it’s locked. Steve grabs a nearby shovel and begins beating on the door. Steve breaks in to the DiMera Crypt and finds Susan holding the dagger with blood all over her. Steve questions what she has done. Susan cries that she had no choice as she then collapses in to Steve’s arms as Steve looks up to see John chained up.

After Doug declares that Marlena is the Devil, Marlena tells Doug that calling her names is not going to help anything. Doug repeats that Marlena is literally the Devil. Belle and Kayla question what he is saying. Marlena tells Kayla that this is why Doug has to be medicated because he’s delusional and talking nonsense. Julie disagrees and says after everything that’s happened, she believes her husband. Shawn questions Julie believing that Marlena is the Devil. Julie says if she listened to Doug in the first place, none of this would’ve happened. Julie then asks Marlena if she should call her Satan.

EJ sits with Tony and Anna at the DiMera Mansion where Anna informs EJ that she wants to play Kristen in Johnny’s movie. EJ brings up romance scenes between Kristen and John as he reminds her that he is playing John. EJ questions if Tony is comfortable with him seducing his wife.

John is thankful to Steve. Steve questions how this happened. John explains that Susan stabbed herself to protect her son. Steve questions who locked John in here and if it was Marlena. Steve tries to make call for help but isn’t getting a signal. John tells Steve to get Susan to the hospital before she bleeds out. Steve asks what about John. John says he’ll live and tells Steve to just go.

Doug declares that Julie is right and that he’s finally fine. Julie says this explains everything, why Marlena kept Doug in a padded room on drugs and separated from all who love him. Marlena asks Kayla and Shawn to stop this and knock sense in to Julie. Shawn declares that what Julie is saying is making a strange kind of sense. Marlena asks if Belle believes this about her mother and calls it nonsense. Belle brings up that it’s happened before. Marlena claims it can’t happen again because John cast the Devil out of her. Julie argues that John was never really a priest. Marlena insists that she is Belle’s mother and asks Belle to tell her that she doesn’t believe this. Belle responds that she’d like to hear what else Doug has to say.

Ciara tells Ben that it’s not their anniversary. Ben explains that it’s not their wedding anniversary but Thanksgiving 4 years ago was one of the most important days of his life. Ciara recalls that’s when she just broke up with Tripp. Ben reminds her that he ran in to her outside of the Pub. They talk about the motorcycle representing her family, freedom, and future. Ciara opens her gift from Ben which is a motorcycle helmet for their baby. Ciara calls it so sweet. Ben knows their life will be very different in 8 months but the things that truly matter will never change. They joke about a baby on a motorcycle. Ben assures they will take every precaution. Ciara tells Ben that she loves him as they kiss.

Belle argues that Marlena hasn’t been herself since she and Shawn got back from South Africa. Marlena asks why she would say that. Belle brings up Marlena dressing up as the Devil on Halloween and calls it an odd choice, given her past. Marlena claims that it was just a costume and she was supporting Johnny’s film. Belle brings up how Marlena treated that black cat. Julie asks why they are debating this when they heard Doug. Marlena argues that Doug is not in his right mind and asks Kayla. Kayla responds that her faith tells her that there is evil in the world. Marlena asks if Kayla thinks she’s talking to the Devil right now. Kayla talks about how she and Steve tried to get a hold of her for days but she ignored them. Marlena claims she was busy but Kayla says they didn’t believe a word. Marlena questions thinking that she’s lying. Doug says that’s all she does and who she is. Kayla adds that there’s a reason that her entire family are worried about her. Marlena asks if she means Shawn and Belle. Kayla says it’s John and reveals that John listened to the tape of Marlena’s therapy session with Doug. Marlena argues that it’s a violation of her patient’s confidentiality. Kayla says not in this case, because John said he couldn’t hear Doug’s voice on the tape and that Marlena sounded scared. Julie declares that she’s afraid of evil incarnate.

Ciara and Ben talk about their baby wearing the motorcycle helmet and how this all started 4 Thanksgivings ago. They flash back to Ciara telling Ben that she had feelings for him and their first kiss. They talk about it both feels like yesterday and like a lifetime.

Belle guesses that Devil Marlena did something to John. Marlena questions thinking she would do something to hurt her husband. Julie tells her to stop acting as she’s not Marlena. Kayla asks where John is. Marlena claims he’s on a mission and undercover. Shawn suggests continuing this conversation at the police station. Marlena questions what she is being arrested for and asks if Belle is going to let him do this to her. Belle responds that she left him no choice as Shawn handcuffs Marlena. Marlena warns that they will all be very sorry for doing this.

Anna tells EJ that people don’t actually have sex in a love scene for a movie as it’s called acting. EJ says he understands. They suddenly hear banging on the side soor. Tony rushes to open the door. Steve then brings in a bloody Susan. EJ jumps up, shocked to see his mother, and questions what the hell Steve did to her. Steve orders him to call an ambulance now so EJ goes to make the call while Steve lays Susan on the couch. Steve reveals that he found Susan like this in the Crypt. Anna questions what he was doing out there. Steve explains that he was looking for John as he was locked inside with Susan. Steve tells them that John is still chained up so they need to go get him out now. Anna and Tony then rush out to the Crypt. Steve calls EJ over to help slow down Susan’s bleeding. EJ urges Susan to hold on as help is coming and she will be fine.

Ben tells Ciara that Thanksgiving 4 years ago was one of the happiest days of his life until a year later, he was on trial for his sister’s murder, and the year after that, he was in prison. Ciara assures that she never lost hope that he would come home. Ben acknowledges that he wouldn’t be here if she didn’t fight so hard for him as she saved his life. Ciara feels she got lucky as she spent a lot of time trying to prove something that was wrong. Ben points out that she ultimately proved the truth, never stopped believing, and never gave up on him. Ciara notes that Ben never gave up on her either, but Ben says he did.

Tony rushes in to the Crypt to find John chained up. Tony says they need something to break the chains. Anna then enters with an axe.

Devil Marlena declares this is unacceptable and they all know this. Julie questions handcuffs holding Satan. Shawn says he doesn’t have very many options but this seems to be working. Marlena argues that she’s not who they think. Kayla gets a text from Steve, saying he found John. Belle asks if he’s okay. Kayla responds that Steve didn’t say and only said to meet him at the hospital. Belle decides she’s going with her. Shawn assures he has everything under control here. Marlena says to give John her love and that she’ll see him soon. Kayla and Belle then exit. Shawn goes to escort Marlena out. Marlena stops and asks what Shawn is going to tell his boss about why he hauled her in. Shawn says if it turns out that John is injured and she had something to do with it, then he guesses they will start there. Marlena asks what about when she’s innocent. Shawn says he’ll happily apologize then, but at the station. Julie begs Shawn to just get her out of their house. Marlena asks if he really thinks he can make her go somewhere that she doesn’t want to go. Devil Marlena then suddenly breaks free of the handcuffs.

Ben tells Ciara that he did give up on her because when he was first told that she was dead, he believed it and lost Hope. Ben recalls feeling like he had nothing to be thankful for and went to the woods trying to feel closer to her. Ciara talks about hearing him every day they were apart. Ciara recalls telling Rhodes that she was thankful to be alive because that meant maybe one day Ben would find her and they’d be together again as they kiss. Ben states that God blessed them with another chance and a life together. Ben promises to never give up on her again or on their baby.

Anna and Tony bring John in to the DiMera Mansion. John complains of his shoulder pain. Anna brings him water. Tony questions who chained John up in the Crypt. Anna asks if Susan did that to him. Tony asks why Susan would do that. John reveals that it wasn’t Susan, it was Marlena. Anna questions why Marlena would do that. John then informs them that Marlena is possessed again and the Devil wanted Susan to kill him. John explains that the Devil threatened Susan that he would kill EJ if she didn’t go through with it because he knew Susan would do anything to save her son. Anna questions how Susan got hurt. John reveals that instead of stabbing him, Susan stabbed herself.

EJ sits with Susan in the hospital. Steve enters and asks how she’s doing. EJ says they say she’s stable but he hasn’t gotten a lot of information. Steve says that he just talked to Tripp, who said Susan is very lucky that the knife didn’t damage any major organs. EJ asks if they think she will make a full recovery. Steve confirms it looks that way. EJ is relieved and thanks Steve for what he did for his mother. Steve is just glad she’s okay. Susan wakes up and calls out to EJ. EJ assures her that he’s there. Susan informs EJ that Marlena said she was going to kill him, but she’s not Marlena. Steve asks what she means. Susan responds that Marlena is the Devil. EJ thinks she’s confused as they aren’t talking about Johnny’s horror movie because that’s not real. Steve responds that he wouldn’t be so sure.

The Devil causes the lights to flash in the Horton home. The Devil guesses it’s not the Thanksgiving they had in mind. Shawn warns Devil Marlena to stay back. The Devil says none of this had to happen if they just left Doug where he was, but now he’s forced to inflict more pain and suffering on their entire family. Julie yells at him to leave them alone. The Devil grabs Shawn. Doug says to leave Shawn out of it. Shawn responds that he’s not afraid of him. The Devil says he’s even dumber than he thought then. The Devil then launches Shawn across the dinner table, crashing through all of the glasses and dishes. Julie calls out to Shawn. The Devil says to leave him as he has bigger plans for Julie and Doug. Julie says “not today, Satan” as Devil Marlena turns and glares at her.

Steve gets a text from Kayla that she is on her way. Steve tells Susan to hang in there as he’s pulling for her. Susan and EJ thank Steve as he exits the room. EJ asks Susan how this happened and if Marlena stabbed her. Susan explains that the Devil wanted her to kill John and said she had to do it or else, he would kill EJ. Susan cries that she couldn’t kill John in cold blood because he’s a good man and he’s the love of Marlena’s life. Susan says she was so frightened for EJ but the Devil insisted that there be a dead body when he came back, so she thought maybe if he needed a human sacrifice, he would accept her. EJ questions Susan being willing to die for him. Susan says EJ is her baby boy and she’d do anything for him because mom always protects her child. Susan adds that she would gladly do it all over again because she loves him. EJ says he loves her too.

Ben tells Ciara that after all these years, they finally have their first real Thanksgiving together. Ciara jokes about Ben not liking pumpkin pie. Ben suggests making a toast with ginger ale. Ben doesn’t know what he did to deserve it but he thanks God that he has her. Ciara feels the same and says next year, it will be the three of them with their little angel as they kiss.

Belle and Kayla arrive at the hospital. Steve comes out and hugs Kayla. Steve doesn’t know how to tell them but Kayla reveals they already know that Marlena is possessed. Belle asks where John is and if he’s okay. Steve responds that he’s alright as he found him in the DiMera Crypt. Belle questions that being where he was the whole time. Steve says it appears that way but he didn’t have time to ask questions as Susan Banks was stabbed and he had to get her help. Kayla questions how Susan got mixed up in all of this. Steve explains that Susan apparently had a vibe that the Devil was in Marlena and John obviously knew too, but it was too late. Kayla says that’s why Marlena had Doug locked up in Bayview. Belle asks if he left John in the Crypt. Steve confirms he sent Anna and Tony in to get him, but he assumed John would be here by now.

John asks Anna and Tony about Susan. Anna explains that Steve and EJ took her to the hospital. Tony wants to get John to the hospital but John refuses. Anna argues that he’s been locked up for weeks so he needs to be looked at. John says he needs to find Marlena. Anna suggests she could be at the hospital but John says she’s out there somewhere. Anna gets a call from Belle, asking if she found John. Anna confirms he is at the mansion with them. Belle asks if he’s okay. Anna says he’s stubborn but alright. Belle is thankful and says she knows where Marlena is. Belle reveals that Marlena crashed Doug and Julie’s Thanksgiving dinner so Shawn handcuffed her to take her to the police station. Anna informs John of this. John tells Anna to tell Belle to have Shawn stand down and not antagonize Marlena, but Belle had already hung up.

Julie argues that the Devil has tortured Doug enough so he’s not going to lay a finger on him. the Devil responds that he doesn’t have to as he’s been inside of Doug and knows that he’s weak and feeble which made him a perfect vessel. The Devil asks Julie if she understands what happened in the therapy session. The Devil says Doug came to Marlena for help with his dementia but he had the perfect opportunity to slip in. Julie doesn’t believe it. The Devil asks Julie who she thinks hit her in the head with a hospital tray. The Devil declares that he should’ve finished them both when he had the chance but it’s better late than never as Devil Marlena raises a knife. Julie talks about loving Doug for so many years and says she will continue for all the Days of their Lives. Julie declares that she would rather die than see the Devil strike Doug down again. The Devil says that can be arranged. Julie acknowledges the Devil’s powers but calls him nothing but a lying trickster. Julie declares that she has a power that the Devil had forsaken eons ago and that’s the power of love. Julie tells Satan that God is love and God stands with those who love. The Devil tells her to stop talking. Julie continues talking about love as she raises her rosary, saying that everlasting love will prevail. Julie shouts that the God of love is stronger than the Devil’s hatred and lies, so he cannot defeat them. Julie says now that the truth is out and visible, the walls are going to close in and it’s over. The Devil exclaims that it will never be over.

Susan tells EJ about the Devil transforming her in to a cat and then possessing her to turn her in to Kristen DiMera. Susan cries that she can’t do this anymore. EJ is sorry she had to go through all of that but assures it’s over now and she’s safe. Susan points out that she didn’t die and didn’t kill John, so the Devil could still come after EJ. EJ doesn’t want her to worry. Susan promises that the Devil will have to go through with her to get to EJ. Susan tells EJ that she loves him with all her heart. EJ says he loves her too.

Steve tells Kayla that they’ve heard the stories about the last time this happened but it’s a whole lot different being here to witness it. Kayla asks what they do next. Steve doesn’t know but for now he’s just grateful they are all safe as he hugs her.

Anna and Tony go to the hospital and tell Belle that they tried to bring John to the hospital to get checked out but he gave them the slip in the parking lot as he was determined to get to Marlena.

John goes to the Horton House and finds Doug, Julie, and Shawn together. Julie assures they are okay. Shawn says he’ll be alright but Marlena is gone. John knew she wouldn’t let them take her to the police station and asks where she went. Shawn responds that she said something about fulfilling her true purpose.

Ben and Ciara talk about taking a nap together as they kiss in bed until there’s a knock at the door. Ben answers the door to see Marlena.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Hey, jack! Hi!

Jack: Hey.

Phyllis: Looks like we have the same idea — drinking coffee in the afternoon. You want to join me? I mean, it could be us, you know, trying to get back to normal, that thing.

[ Chuckles nervously ] I’ll pay.

Jack: I’d love to. I can’T. I just stopped by to get some coffee and snacks before I fly to spain with ashley.

Phyllis: Oh, you’re going to spain? Why?

Jack: It’s abby. She’s having a tougher time dealing with the loss of her husband than any of us realized. She just left town.

Phyllis: Oh, and you think that she might be in spain?

Jack: Chance was in valencia when his safe house blew up, so we’re hoping that maybe she’s there trying to prove that he didn’t die, which breaks my heart.

Ashley: Hi. Thanks.

Victor: Here to say goodbye?

Ashley: Well, I’m all ready to go. Yes. I’m packed. And by the way, jack’s coming with me. I hope that’s not a problem for the jet manifest.

Victor: Mm. Well, I’m sure jack is as concerned about the whole situation as we all are.

Ashley: Yes.

Victor: But after what devon and I found in abby’s motel room, I’ve changed my mind.

Ashley: What do you mean? What did you find?

Victor: A military pin that I’m sure belongs to chance. And she accidentally left it behind.

Ashley: Which confirms what we were thinking — she went to spain to find chance.

Victor: Which means I’ve changed my mind about how we will handle things. Jack’s no longer needed to come along with you. I’ll be there with you.

Ashley: Well, I thought we agreed that I would go, to appeal to her as her mother.

Victor: Well, now her father will be there, as well.

Sharon: Okay, I am headed back to the coffeehouse, and i will see you later. Hello? Noah? Do you have your ear buds in? Noah, is everything okay?

Noah: Sorry. I was just, uh — I was just thinking.

Sharon: Yeah, I can see that. That’s been happening a lot lately. What’s wrong?

Noah: Nothing. Just zoning out. You know us artist types.

[ Chuckles ]

Sharon: I’m not sure I do know. Why don’t you tell me more about that?

Noah: Mom, I’m fine. Really. I’m gonna go for a run. That always helps clear my head. I’ll see you later, okay?

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Nick: Abby’s in spain? I thought she was just going away for a couple days to deal with her grief.

Devon: No, your dad and i think that she’s convinced that chance is alive.

Nick: But you said you’d talked to her and gotten her to accept chance’s death.

Devon: Yeah, we thought we did, but she’s talked herself back into it, and now she’s off looking for him.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Damn it.

Devon: I know. She slipped a note under my door saying she’s gonna be gone longer than expected, and then your dad tracked her down to a motel, but she was gone by the time we got there. And no one’s heard from her since.

Nick: You don’t think there’s any way, though, that chance could have gotten out of that building alive?

Devon: Not according to christine and the state department, no. I mean, he’s — he’s been presumed dead.

Nick: [ Sighs ] That just means when she does finally accept the truth, it’s just gonna devastate her even more.

Devon: Yeah, and that means it’s gonna be devastating for dominic, too. If you’re washing with the bargain brand,

[ Knock on door ]

Sally: You wanted to see me?

Adam: Have a seat.

Sally: What’s up?

Adam: I understand from our social-media team that you have become quite the hot commodity.

Sally: Well, the rumors are true. I’ve gotten a ton of new followers on my personal accounts, and my e-mail has been blowing up with request for interviews and desperate brides clamoring for a copy of victoria’s wedding gown.

Adam: Well, normally I would prefer my staff to create stories instead of being subjects of them, but I think we need to capitalize on this. I think we need to take the opportunity to add to the newman media success story.

Sally: Yeah. I agree. What, uh, do you have in mind?

Adam: Well, you and chloe had an idea early on to make you an on-camera personality, create video content for newman fashions that people won’t want to miss. I think it’s an opportune time to pull the trigger on that.

Sally: Really?

Adam: Mm-hmm. I want to monetize public interest in you and generate increased traffic. Are you still interested in that kind of exposure?

Sally: [ Sighs ] Oh, man. I — I don’t know. I mean, you know me. I’m a total introvert, and i kind of prefer to stay behind the scenes, so I —

Adam: Seriously?

Sally: No. [ Laughs ]

Adam: So, I can count on you and chloe to run with this?

Sally: Yeah, absolutely. What’s the budget?

Adam: [ Inhales sharply ] Uh, well, come up with a proposal, and we’ll talk.

Sally: Okay, well, I already have a ton of ideas because, frankly, this was kind of my plan from the beginning.

Adam: I always suspected that you had one.

Sally: [ Sighs ]

Adam: You’re too driven to leave anything to chance.

Sally: I’m gonna take that as a compliment.

Adam: It was meant as one.

Sally: You know, my big master plan went through one big change along the way, though.

Adam: Oh, yeah? What’s that?

Sally: You. I’ve given up hope that we’re ever gonna see each other outside of the office.

Tessa: Oh, hi!

Sharon: I saw your drink order on the counter, and i thought I’d bring it over.

Tessa: Oh, well, thank you.

Sharon: How’s mariah?

Tessa: Uh…well, you know, she’s throwing herself into work, more projects, more hours.

Sharon: Mm, I figured as much. She’s kind of hard to get a hold of. Should I be worried?

Tessa: This thing with abby, her leaving the baby with devon without giving mariah a heads-up — uh, it threw her. I think she’s feeling lost again. So, maybe it’s a good thing that she’s working so much. I mean, at least that’s what I’m telling myself. I’m trying to be there for her, but, you know, I’m busy, too. I’m finishing up my first lp.

Sharon: Oh, right. I heard about that. That’s exciting. And noah told me that you asked him to collaborate on the artwork.

Tessa: Oh, yes. I want him to say yes so bad!

Sharon: I’m so glad that you asked him to do that. Noah could use a new project, too. He’s been a little down since he got home, and I suspect he had some heartbreak in london that he isn’t willing to talk about yet.

Nikki: Well, hello, ashley.

Ashley: Hi.

Nikki: You ready to leave for spain?

Ashley: I am.

Victor: So am I.

Nikki: What? I thought —

Victor: I have decided to go along with ashley.

Ashley: But you understand that time is of the essence because abby has a head start. You said yourself you can’t leave until later today because of business, but I’m leaving here and I’m going straight to the airport.

Victor: Adam can take over for me. So I’m free to go.

Nikki: I don’t understand. Why the change of heart?

Victor: Because I’m afraid that abby will take unnecessary risks.

Nikki: Why would you think she would put herself in danger?

Victor: Because I know abby, okay? Once she makes up her mind to do something, she won’t let go. Ashley knows that. That’s why she’s flying to spain to bring abby home, right?

Ashley: Well, yes, hopefully, but finding that military pin does not change our agreed-upon plan, victor, and I just don’t see the point of us both going to europe.

Victor: I’m her father. I want to be there.

Nikki: If abby is in a heightened emotional state, she might be more receptive to her mother.

Ashley: I agree with nikki. I’m afraid that if we both go there to see her, she’s gonna feel like we’re ganging up on her, and that’ll just make abby dig in her heels, right?

Victor: Wait a minute. Jack’s presence will do the same.

Ashley: No, because when i speak with abby, I’ll be speaking with her alone.

Nikki: Also, if you stay here, darling, you will have all of your investigative resources at your fingertips. So, if ashley should run into some trouble, you can call in a favor with one of your many connections. I mean, abby will be in a different country, a foreign country, trying to stay under the radar.

Ashley: I think it would be best if we just work together as a team and play to our strengths, right? If she’s in spain, I promise you I will find her and I will bring her home.

Victor: [ Sighs ] So, you want to go to valencia alone? Alright. Call me when you get there, okay?

Ashley: Yes. I promise I will keep you informed. Alright. Here I go. Wish me luck.

Nikki: Don’t hesitate to contact us day or night, and please be careful.

Ashley: I will. It’s gonna be okay.

Nikki: You made the right call. It couldn’t have been easy.

Victor: Well, I gave in because I guess it’s something that ashley wants to do by herself.

Nikki: Well, she won’t be alone. Jack is going, too.

Victor: Well, I have no issue with jack going. He and ashley are close, so that’s alright. I guess I’ll stick around and, uh, help devon in case he needs support with the baby, you know?

Nikki: Well, this is quite a change for you. Normally, you’d want to be controlling everything.

Victor: Yeah. I still am.

Your heart is at the heart

of everything you do.

Nick: Maybe I should just go to spain myself and find abby on my own.

[ Doorbell rings ]

Devon: Hang on one second.

Nick: Yeah.

Devon: Just one second. Mr. Newman.

Victor: Devon.

Devon: Come in, please.

Victor: Thank you.

Devon: Absolutely.

[ Door closes ]

Victor: Hey, son.

Nick: Hey, dad. Devon was just filling me in. What is the latest on abby?

Victor: Ashley’s on the way to spain to try to talk abby out of searching for chance. That’s a hopeless cause, you know? Jack went along to support her.

Nick: Well, I’m surprised you’re not going. I know how important family is to you.

Victor: Very important to me, okay? I’ve decided I can do more good staying at home.

Nick: Oh, yeah. No doubt.

Victor: Talking about family, how’s noah doing now that he’s back home? Is he adjusting or what?

Nick: Fine, as far as I can tell.

Victor: Your mother and i haven’t seen much of him.

Nick: His cellphone number hasn’t changed, dad. You should call him. We’ll wrap up our business later. Let me know if you hear anything about abby.

Devon: Absolutely.

[ Door opens ]

[ Door closes ]

Devon: Is everything okay with you guys?

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ]

Devon: Sensed some tension.

Victor: Yeah, well… yeah. Nothing out of the ordinary.

Devon: You sure about that? I’ll listen if you want to talk about it. I don’t mind.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Nicholas seems to think that i use my children, you know, to my own benefits, that I manipulate them, that I pit them against each other so it creates tension, then I use that tension for my own good. And nothing could be further from the truth. You know? I don’t like this kind of tension between me and my son and my children. I hate it. I grew up without a damn father. Didn’t know my mother very much. And I’ve always been very protective of my children, apparently unbeknownst to them. So this bothers me enormously. But being protective is part of being a father. One day, you’ll find out.

Devon: I can only imagine. I really can. I mean, having — having never been a father myself, I can’t really give you good advice, i guess.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Now you will have a chance. When dominic grows up, you’ll find out, you know?

Devon: [ Exhales sharply ]

Victor: You know that he needs a strong father figure now that chance is no longer around.

Devon: I do. And you know that I would do anything in the world for that boy.

Victor: It makes me happy to hear that.

[ Door opens ]

Noah: [ Breathing heavily ]

Faith: Thought I smelled something.

Noah: [ Grunts ] Yeah, at least I’m getting outside. Admit it — you just woke up.

Faith: Wrong. I’ve been at school and the coffeehouse and done all sorts of things.

Noah: Ah.

Faith: Ew! You’re getting sweat on the sofa. So, what are you gonna do now? Stare up into space the rest of the day?

Noah: You know, I just might.

Faith: Maybe you should tell someone about what’s bugging you.

Noah: So, when did you turn into mom?

Faith: Trust me. If you keep up the couch zombie routine, she’s gonna be on your case even more than she already is.

Noah: [ Scoffs ] I can’t complain too much, considering I brought it on myself. Now, if you couldn’t tell, I’m not great at hiding my feelings.

Faith: Maybe because you’re a terrible liar.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Faith: Which isn’t a bad thing, but if you talk to someone, you can honestly tell mom that you got it off your chest, which might calm her down.

Noah: I can see you’re the expert.

Faith: Remember what my whole last year was like? I’ve got a phd in mom-handling. So if you need a sounding board, I volunteer. No judgment. Plus, I promise I won’t tell anyone. Deal?

Jack: When we find abby, if we find abby, the plan is to convince her to come back to genoa city for dominic’s sake. I don’t want ashley going alone. The situation’s so volatile. Both of them — the stakes are so high. If they need me, I want to be there for them.

Phyllis: Your family’s very lucky to have you. Really. You always go above and beyond for the people you love.

Jack: Thanks.

Sharon: Um [Clears throat] Two coffees, and here’s your sandwiches. I threw in some cookies and some fruit.

Jack: You are the best. Thank you very much.

Sharon: You know, abby’s been through so much. My heart really goes out to her.

Jack: Yeah.

Sharon: I hope you find her.

Jack: Thanks. Ash and I just want to bring her home, where she’s surrounded by friends and family. That way, she can heal.

Phyllis: Yeah.

Jack: Anyway, I got to go. I told ashley I’d meet her at the airport, and I don’t want to keep her waiting.

Phyllis: Bring abby home safe.

Jack: Thanks. I appreciate the support.

Phyllis: What?

Sharon: You tell me.

Start your day with crest 3d


Phyllis: Um, listen, sharon. I don’t want to play games with you. If you have something to say, just say it.

Sharon: I’m just wondering what’s going on with you and jack because the two of you seem so close — and just a few short days after you and nick called it quits.

Phyllis: What are you implying?

Sharon: I’m just making an observation.

Phyllis: Okay, well, first, um, my relationship with jack is none of your business. Second, you know that jack and i are friends, and he’s been a great friend to me during this breakup with nick, a very, very good friend, as I’m sure you’ve been there for nick, too. And I’m not going off on you, am I? So zip it.

Sharon: Wow, that’s a bit of a vehement reaction to just a simple question. Unless you’ve been asking yourself the same ones.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? I don’t need your analysis, sharon.

Sharon: Well, I would just hate to find out that nick got hurt because you decided to rekindle an old relationship.

Phyllis: That is a cheap shot. I am heartbroken over my breakup with nick. So I think it’s best if we just move on and get on with our lives, okay?

Noah: When I was in london, i met this girl, ended up falling pretty hard. She was an artist, too.

Faith: That must have been great, having so much in common. Kind of like moses and me. You know we’re going out, right?

Noah: Yeah, rey mentioned it.

Faith: We like a lot of the same stuff, especially music, which gave us a good basis to build our friendship on. Plus, it’s fun.

Noah: Yeah, it was definitely like that — for a while, at least. We, uh, were kind of competitive with each other, in a healthy way. We’d critique each other’s work, but then we’d also go to each other’s showings, celebrate the success. Living the dream.

Faith: So, what happened?

Noah: I’m not exactly sure. I think that’s why I’ve felt so preoccupied lately, trying to figure out what went wrong.

Faith: Any thoughts?

Noah: My only guess is i started getting more commissions and more openings, more good reviews than she did. I think she started to resent me for it. Things got ugly. We had some bitter, nasty fights. By that time, I — you know, i was already in love with her. So when she left… I was crushed.

Faith: I’m so sorry, noah. That’s so unfair. You deserve someone who will cheer you on when good things happen, not get all petty and jealous.

Noah: People are complicated. Success is complicated. You think you want it, and then once you get it, you realize that it changes very little. And you’re still the same person you always were, but trying to explain that to somebody who hasn’t made it yet… she accused me of patronizing her and… I really wanted it to work out, too, but she didn’T. So then london just became this place filled with memories that I didn’t want to relive. “We had a fight in that restaurant. She walked out of this showing. We made up on that bridge.” And then one day we just — we just didn’t make up at all.

Faith: So, you can’t stop thinking about this woman because what? You want her back?

Noah: I definitely don’t want all the turmoil back, but… I mostly just — I don’t want to make the same mistakes again.

Faith: Then don’T.

Noah: Wow. Okay. So, it’s that simple. Why didn’t I think of that?

Faith: Okay, look. Maybe instead of stewing about this endlessly, you get off your butt and you come to crimson lights with me. There’s nothing that caffeine and carbs can’t fix.

Noah: [ Chuckles ]

Faith: Deal?

Noah: You know, you’ve gotten really wise in your old age.

[ Laughs ]

Faith: But first shower, or they won’t let you in.

Noah: Okay. Yeah.

Faith: [ Chuckles ]

Sally: I’ve been thinking a lot about what you said in tuscany. How you put the brakes on things and told me that you weren’t in the right place to start a new relationship. And at the time, I told you that I was holding out hope that you would come around.

Adam: And now you are not.

Sally: I’m poised to have an incredible career, thanks to you and chloe, and I have worked my tail off for this opportunity. And for once, I don’t want to mess that up. And even though I’m drawn to you…I’ve come to accept having boundaries at work. And I don’t want things to get weird between us. So, I’m glad to be colleagues and friends and to focus on my impending success.

Together forever and

never to part

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Nick: What’s going on?

Phyllis: Oh, uh, sharon seems to think that we broke up because of jack. I told her to keep her nose out of it. But I think it’s interesting that we’re such a popular couple here in genoa city. Everybody seems to have an opinion as to why we didn’t last. And I think we can agree that that’s nobody’s business but ours, right? And everybody else can keep their nose out of it.

Nick: So, why are you so upset?

Phyllis: Why am I so upset? Because we failed. I failed. And nobody but us should pass judgment. That’s for sure.

Sharon: Methinks she protests too much.

Nick: I’m not gonna talk about this with you, for obvious reasons.

Sharon: Fine. Let’s not talk about phyllis. But I do think we should have a conversation about our son.

Nick: What about him?

Sharon: Well, noah’s been doing a lot of sitting around the house. And it’s not like him to mope. I’m beginning to think this is serious.

Nick: Isn’t any break-up at that age serious?

Sharon: Not necessarily. But, you know, he’s being really vague. I can’t get any details out of him.

Nick: Sometimes that’s the way dudes are, you know? We don’t talk about everything, which is why I don’t want to talk about phyllis with you.

Sharon: Well, your break-up is recent, so that’s understandable. But noah — I don’t know. He’s been home for a little while, and I’m starting to think that whatever happened in london hurt him more than he’s willing to talk about.

Nick: Well, maybe it’s something that he needs to work out on his own. You know, he’s a grown man. He’s a very smart one. He’ll figure it out.

Sharon: Well, as his mom, it’s my instinct to want to help him, no matter how old he is.

Nick: Yeah, something tells me that’s never gonna go away.

Sharon: [ Chuckles ] Let’s hope not.

Tessa: Hi, mariah. Here for your daily pop quiz. What is your favorite thanksgiving pie? Is this painful for you? Because I figured, if it was embarrassing, then you would just have to re– ugh. Oh, god. Delete, delete, delete. That is the definition of “trying too hard.” Oof.

Noah: Hey, you.

Tessa: Hi!

Faith: Hey!

Tessa: Hey! Pull up a chair! Oh, you guys are saving me from further humiliation. It’s so good to see you guys.

Noah: It’s good to see you, too.

Nick: Noah looks okay to me.

Victor: Hey, son.

Adam: I thought you were going to spain with ashley.

Victor: Yeah.

Adam: Does this mean you found abby?

Victor: [ Exhales heavily ] Ashley’s on her way to bring her back. But I decided to stay put. There are some things we need to discuss.

Adam: Mm-hmm. Let me guess. You heard from our friend at chanccomm?

Victor: I did, you know? He came groveling, true to form.

Adam: Did he accept our offer?

Victor: Well, he made an offer of his own.

Adam: [ Chuckling ] Oh. Oh, man, this — this has got to be good.

Victor: He said he would step back from chanccomm, if we backed off, and let lily run the place.

Adam: Uh-huh. What does “back off” mean?

Victor: That means no sabotage, no retaliation, no lawsuits.

Adam: [ Inhales deeply ] What do we get out of it?

Victor: What do you think? We watch him resign publicly.

Adam: I can see that you like that idea.

Victor: You bet I do. It has a certain charm to it, doesn’t it, huh?

Adam: So, what’d you say?

Victor: I didn’t say much. Just said that I would consider the proposal.

Adam: So, what do you really intend to do? Because I can’t imagine that you’re actually contemplating accepting this offer.

Ashland: I’m curious, as well.

Victor: Ashland.

Ashland: What are your thoughts about billy’s offer? You have always loved vicks vapors.

Victor: Well, to be honest with you, his offer came quite as a surprise to me. Billy boy willing to step back from chanccomm, provided we allow lily to continue running the company. I didn’t think he had it in him.

Ashland: Humility?

Adam: Hmm. No. Knowing when to fold.

Victor: Exactly. And he doesn’t know when to fold, never has. That punk always plays the wrong hand, you know? He doesn’t know how to quit when he’s ahead.

Adam: I don’t see why we would waste all this work to ruin chanccomm, scoop it up on the cheap, just for the fun of embarrassing billy abbott.

Victor: Son, you don’t understand how long that man has been a pain in my side, okay? I enjoy to see him dangling in the wind. Got it?

Ashland: I had a run-in with lily earlier.

Victor: Oh, yeah?

Ashland: She had no idea that her partner came to you with that proposal. In fact, she suggested that our whole move was based solely on animosity toward billy and that I was being used as a weapon.

Adam: Well, I would say that you are your own best weapon.

Ashland: Exactly. This is personal for all of us. But I’ve already gotten what i want — the pleasure of seeing that jerk twist in the wind after trying to destroy me at my wedding. It’s ironic, isn’t it, that my reputation was saved by being dragged through the mud.

Victor: So you’re feeling quite good about how things are developing, right?

Ashland: Overall, yes. And now I’m happy to repay the favor by going along with anything that the two of you decide.

Victor: So, we will proceed as we have previously agreed upon. We’ll make billy boy think that we’ve accepted his offer. We’ll call a temporary truce and then let him have it.

Adam: So, when lily gives up or jill orders the sale of chanccomm, we’ll buy it at a deep discount.

Victor: Yeah. And billy boy abbott won’t know what hit him.

Tessa: [ Sighs ]

Noah: So, what’s going on with mariah?

Tessa: Well, I was trying to send her a video, but I was failing miserably.

Faith: Why?

Tessa: I was asking her what her favorite pie is. How dumb is that?

Faith: [ Chuckles ] Probably mom’s apple crisp.

Noah: Pumpkin. I could just destroy a pumpkin pie.

[ Laughter ]

Tessa: Well, blueberry for me.

Noah: [ Chuckles ] Alright, next question — spotlight on faith. You’re gonna be in college soon. What do you want to study, kid? Now, fingers crossed we have another artist in the family.

Tessa: Right, because that is an excellent way to make money. You’ve heard the term “starving artist”?

Noah: Hmm. And that’s opposed to the wildly stable life of a musician, right?

Tessa: Ouch.

Faith: Okay, okay. For now, I would rather focus on the present, where my biggest decision is what dessert to have. Reminder — we are here for carbs. What do you want?

Noah: Uh, cinnamon r– no. Brownie. Brownie.

Tessa: Blondie.

Faith: One of each?

Noah: You don’t got to ask me twice.

Faith: Okay. Be right back.

Nick: Hey, kiddo.

Faith: Hey. What’s up?

Sharon: Um, you guys look like you’re having fun. Are you enjoying spending time with your big brother?

Faith: Don’t worry, mom. He’s okay. We had a good talk. He told me about this girl that he was seeing in london. They broke up, and that’s why he’s a little down. But I don’t want to repeat anything that he shared with me in confidence, which I’m sure you can understand.

Sharon: Of course.

Nick: We appreciate the update.

Faith: Sure. Anyway, I’m going to get brownies, so…

Sharon: Well, don’t let us keep you.

Nick: See? Noah’s talking about it.

Sharon: Yeah. Um, that’s a relief.

Nick: I mean, just ’cause he won’t spill his guts to his parents doesn’t mean he won’t open up to someone. What?

Sharon: Our little girl. She’s old enough to be a confidante to her big brother.

Ashley: I’m really happy you’re here. I know I told you I didn’t need you to come, but I’m so glad you did.

Jack: No place I’d rather be.

Ashley: I know it’s a tricky time for you.

Jack: It feels good to hit the pause button on my personal life for a bit.

Ashley: I’m still grateful.

Jack: My focus right now is supporting you and tracking abby. Hey. You alright?

Ashley: Not really. I mean, it’s not gonna be the holiday we thought it would be, right? Everybody gathered around the table celebrating dominic’s first thanksgiving.

Jack: We will have that celebration — don’t you worry — even if it’s not on the actual day. That’s what I intend to be thankful for.

Abby: I’m thankful for you. After 40 wrinkles deepen and skin can get uneven

Noah: I guess we can drop our “trying too hard” act now that it’s just us.

Tessa: How you doing?

Noah: I talked to faith earlier, and it made me feel better. How about you?

Tessa: Up and down. But I’m starting to realize that’s just what it’s like being an adult. There’s always something tough to deal with.

Noah: [ Sighs ] Thanks for being a downer.

[ Both laugh ]

Tessa: No, no, I am just a realist. I don’t know. I guess — I know now that you don’t have to plummet into despair every time there’s a bump. You just deal with it. You just surround yourself with people that make you laugh, and you keep going. I mean…it’s not easy, but it helps. Not everything has to be life or death. Does that make sense?

Noah: Oh, it does, because when I’m with you, I — I don’t really feel like I’m trying to be okay.

Tessa: See? That’s what I mean. Being with friends that cheer you up. Which reminds me — will you take that video for mariah for me?

Noah: Sure.

Tessa: Thank you. Okay. [ Clears throat ]

Noah: Alright, ready when you are.

Tessa: And, uh, action. Hi! Uh, I can’t wait for you to come home later because your brother has promised to eat an entire pumpkin pie — ugh — in one sitting. How gross is that?

[ Both laughing ]

Adam: What about timing? When does billy go down?

Victor: I think we let him dangle over the fire a little longer.

Adam: That is fine by me.

Victor: Yeah.

[ Cellphone ringing ] Oh. Sorry, son. This is about abby, okay?

Adam: Can I help?

Victor: No, that’s okay. It’s all covered. Thank you. Ashley? How are you? Where are you?

Ashley: On my way to spain with jack and your security people.

Victor: You are alright?

Ashley: Well, I’m a little worried. I guess that’s only natural. But I am determined to see this through.

Victor: You’ll do just fine, okay? I have every confidence in you.

Ashley: Thank you. I mean, all my instincts are saying that abby has to be in spain, so I will find her. Before anything happens.

Victor: Sweetheart, do me a favor. Just be safe, most of all. And then I will do everything i can do from my end. But please bring our daughter home, okay?

Baby let me take you on a ride

where they’l take care of him.

[ Crying ] No, no! I didn’t get to hold him! Please bring back my son!

[ Sobs ] Nina: I guess we had the same idea. I don’t follow. Well, who do we go to when we need to talk to someone? Phyllis. She has a way of putting everything into perspective. Is she here? No, actually, she’s not. Okay, then I’m gonna go ahead and — uh, have you heard anything? I-I was just — I was just here waiting for any kind of news. W-what do you mean? What — what news? Sasha. She went into labor. I thought you knew. I went to see brando at — at gh. She was fine. What happened? Sasha had to have an emergency c-section. Text me when you get home. Bye. Is that bobbie? Uh, yeah, I was supposed to go christmas shopping with my mom. Hi. And, uh, well, my hard-working mother is dead on her feet, so I ordered a car service for her. Oh, that’s too bad. What are you doing here? I’m just out for a walk and, um, got a coffee. A walk? Yeah. Wow. It’s pretty cold out. I don’t mind it. Actually probably gonna miss it. Miss it? Joss didn’t tell you? No. I’m, uh, leaving town.

[ Rock crumbling ]

[ Coughing ]

[ Groans ]

[ Grunts ]

[ Panting ]

Hi, mom. Um, I was calling to talk to james and georgie. Wow. Already? I guess it is past their bedtime. Thanks, mom. I just wanted to make sure my children were safe. You’re just here to help your friend. You’re chivalry is misguided. It’s not chivalry. Brook lynn lied to everyone,

including me. I’m not here to help her. So you’re here to confront her? I’ve had my suspicions for a while now. Yeah, I knew that brook lynn was hiding something, so I did what any detective would do. I investigated. Chase, stop it. I told you when I got back to port charles that bailey’s not yours. I have a dna test that says otherwise. Without a doubt, bailey is mine. You know, I thought we were friends, brook lynn. I’ve had your back, and this is how you repay me? By keeping my daughter from me for months? I will never forgive you for this. Your baby is having trouble breathing. We had to get him to the nicu right away. And while they’re taking care of him, we’re gonna take care of you. You can’t feel it because of the epidural, but you’re in the middle of an operation. I only care about our baby. Hey, hey, I care about

both of you, okay? Now, look at me. Breathe. All right? We’ll get through this. Okay?

[ Whimpers, groans ] Sasha? Wake up. Wake up, baby. Brando: Hey, hey, no, no, no. Sasha. -She’s hemorrhaging. -What’s happening? -She’s hemorrhaging! Suction. -Hey. -Nurse baldwin, take him out. -Brando. Brando, you need to step out. Elizabeth: Please. Brando: Hey. What — please. Hey, no, no, no. Step out. Wake up, sasha! She’s gonna be fine.

[ Both shouting over each other ]

[ Sobbing ] She can’t die! Sasha had a placental abruption. That’s when the baby, um — I know, I know. I know what it is. I-it’s just very dangerous for the baby and for the mother. Brando must be going through hell, right? Maxie told me that she would text me with any new news. Okay, I want to go —

[ Sighs ] I gotta go to the hospital. Yeah. Well, brando is in the O.R. With sasha, but, yeah, you should be there anyway, just in case he needs you. Yeah. You’re leaving town? Yeah, it’s just a business trip. You know, some things piled up in sydney that I have to deal with in person. Piled up? It’s not like you to put things off. Well, I didn’t want to leave while sonny was gone, you know, given how things escalated during his absence, and putting our daughter at risk — no, josslyn was fine. She wasn’t in any danger. No, she was in danger of losing her mother to a bullet from cyrus renault. Okay, so, um, now that sonny’s back, you feel that it’s safe for you to leave josslyn and go? Do I feel it’s safe? No. No, I think — I think it’s safer. At least I hope so. I mean, you’ve — you’ve stepped back from the organization, right? You and jason are no longer a — a thing. I mean, business partners. I mean, I know that jason will always be front and center in your life.

[ Rock crumbling ]

[ Both grunting ]

[ Strains, grunts ]

[ Groans ]

[ Panting ]

[ Grunts ] Britt! Ugh. Can you hear me?

[ Panting ] Britt. Britt. All right, stay with me, okay? Stay with me. She’s right here. She’s right here.

[ Groans ] I got her. Is she conscious? She’s a little bit in and out. How are you? You okay?

[ Gasps ] Shh. Stay with me. It’s okay. It’s okay. It’s — it’s mutter. You may have a concussion. I need you to open your eyes. Jason. Jason.

You have proof that you’re bailey’s father? I do. And for what it’s worth, I am so sorry, valentin. Brook lynn lied to both of us. All I can say is I did what I had to. I never meant to hurt you. How could you possibly think that this wouldn’t hurt me? When you were with willow, you said you didn’t want kids. That was forever ago. And that’s when you were with willow, who you loved. You don’t love me. You don’t want to have a baby with me, especially not after one night of fun when I was crashing with you. You lied to chase for the same reason you lied to me — because you wanted to prove yourself to your father by delivering the elq shares back to your family. I didn’t lie for myself, okay? I never meant to hurt anybody. For once in my stupid life, I was just trying to do the right thing! Brando? Hey, is sasha out of surgery? What’s wrong?

[ Crying ] I don’t know.

[ Sobs ] We have a son. And, um — and something went wrong and he didn’t cry and they took him away and sasha passed out, and, maxie, I might lose them both. Oh, my god. Hey. I thought you left. Yeah, well, you know, you said that, uh, brando’s in the O.R., Right? And maxie’s gonna text you after the surgery’s done. And sasha’s young and healthy, so we just gotta — we just gotta hope for the best. Yeah, it’s — it’s everything I can do just not to go to the hospital and hover over her like a mothe– well, then, it’s — it’s really not my place. You still think of her as a daughter, don’t you? Well, valentin hired her to pretend to be my daughter. You would think that I would want nothing to do with her, and for a while I didn’T. In my head, I remember everything that she put me through. But my heart… sometimes forgets. Yeah. Hearts tend to do that.

[ Breathing heavily ] Robert: Freeze! Go on. Go for the gun. I’ll use any excuse I can find to shoot you.

[ Grunts ] Aaaah!

[ Grunts ] Hello, peter.

aking excuses. What could possibly justify keeping a child from her father? Well, in the beginning, um, all I saw it as was a chance to make things right with my dad. It never even occurred to me that — that you would even be capable of falling in love with bailey. And when you saw that I did? It was too late. I’m so, so sorry. No. No, you’re not. You got caught when gladys exposed you. And what you have done, I will never forgive. Okay, anything else you need to say to each other can wait. No, I think we’re done here. Good. Um, brook lynn, would you come with me, please? Valentin. I really am sorry for your pain. You know, jax, I thought I made it clear — my life is none of your business. Well, it becomes my business when you put our daughter in danger. Okay, we are josslyn’s parents. That’s a bond that’s never gonna break, but…you’re not my friend anymore. Yeah, I know that. Happy to stay out of your life. Well, for how long? Are you coming back for thanksgiving or christmas? I’m not sure yet. I mean, you know, josslyn can always come and visit me in sydney and have a summer there — that doesn’t sound like you’re gonna hurry back. Look, besides josslyn and alexis, I’m kind of on the outs with everyone in port charles right now. Well, that’s what happens when you drop everything for nina. You really let her screw up your life. So have you forgiven sasha? Oh, yeah, a long time ago. How? I mean, that kind of lie… well, sasha may have claimed to be someone she wasn’t at first, but the relationship that followed, the bond, the mother-and-daughter love — that was real. Right. And she truly came to care about me. She was just — she was just caught in a lie. She could have spoken up, just told the truth. We always say that, don’t we, sonny? I know I have. “All you had to do was tell the truth.” All, um, valentin and sasha had to do was to say, “hey, nina, sasha’s not your real daughter.” All jax and carly had to say was, “hey, nina, nelle is your daughter, and I’m so sorry for your loss.” See, when you’re the one being deceived, it’s easy to point your finger at your deceivers and hold them accountable and think that they’re so evil, but when you’re the one lying, especially when you’re lying to someone that you really love… hey. I’m really, really sorry that I lied to you. Then why did you keep doing it? Sonny, why does anyone lie to — to anybody about anything? It’s because they have too much to lose by telling the truth. What did you have to lose? ‘Cause you knew the truth was gonna come out sooner or later. I…I… all I know is that I was in so much pain and you just showed up out of nowhere — mike. And you were kinder to me than anyone has ever been in my entire life. And I wasn’t strong enough to give that up. Brando, listen to me. Sasha is strong, and she’s — she’s healthy overall. She’s also got dr. Navarro, who is the best. She and your baby are gonna be fine. They said that — they said my little boy couldn’t breathe. Okay, babies are resilient. Look at james. He was born on the side of the road and — but my son can’t breathe! Your son is in a hospital. Okay, wait. Tell me about the first time you saw him before anybody noticed anything was wrong. It was unforgettable. In one moment I’m just this guy. I’m just this mechanic, and.. the next I was a dad. And when I saw his little head, it was like this rush that came over me,

[Voice breaking ] And then it hit me like a tidal wave. I remember that feeling well. Just, like, one glance at him, and I loved him more than I thought it was possible to love anybody. Now I’ll do anything for him. Of course you will. Yeah. ‘Cause now you are not the most important person in your life anymore, and you never will be again, and that is the best feeling in the world. I mean, from now on, it’s all about making sure that child is happy and safe and healthy. You’ll do anything to protect that child, no matter the cost. Where are jason and britt? He came in through the wine cellar. So there’s an escape tunnel down there? Well, not anymore. It’s all rubble now. You want to know what britt and jason are? They’re underneath what’s left of those tunnels. Jason! Jason! We have to help. Britta, stop. Chances are you have a concussion. You need to stay still.

[ Grunts ] Jason was right there. We have to help him. How? There are several tons of rock in the way. The rest of this tunnel could come down on us any minute. Let me get you out of here. Herr cain, come. We must move. No! Not without my brother.

Are you okay? Valentin really didn’t pull any punches. Yeah, neither did you. I’m sorry for unloading on you, but I didn’t want him to think that — thank you. Wow.

[ Sighs ] Hug like that, and I’ll be terrible to you more often. No one — and I mean no one — can find out who bailey’s real father is. I understand. ‘Cause her real father is peter august, her mother is maxie, and bailey is really louise. Something warm on a cold night. And even though it’s perfectly toasty in here, your body still knows what time of year it is. It’ll ground you. Thanks. So, are you and sasha going to move in together? Yeah, we’ve been talking about it. Just talking? Are you not sure about your feelings for sasha? No, I’ve never been more sure about anything. Sasha changed my life. Now we have a son — a son who’S… he’s gonna be all right. Up until now, I-I feel like, uh, I’ve just been on the sidelines while sasha’s been doing all the heavy lifting. And, you know, now that my son is here, I’m — I’m gonna start pulling my weight. And you will. I mean, when in doubt, there’s always diaper duty.

[ Laughs ] I’ll do it.

[ Chuckles ] Any and all of it. I don’t want to miss a moment of my son’s life. I can’t imagine any of it without sasha. Well — ah! — The tunnel is collapsed. I guess I’m the only one that made it out alive.

[ Chuckles ] Well, there you go. We can call off the search. A reliable source has just delivered terrible news.

[ Cellphone rings ] Yeah. Anna, if that’s maxie — it’s not. Hello. Yeah, I can’t talk right now, but, um, I do want to tell you that we have peter in custody. Oh, that’s great. That’s great. Yeah, isn’t it? God, at long last.

Is everything okay? Yeah, everything’s fine.

[ Voice breaking ] I just called to check in. Um, I’m gonna let you go, okay? Valentin, are you all right? I will be. I’ll be home soon. So we can talk then, yeah? Not soon enough. Anna, do me a favor. Don’t turn your back on peter. I won’T. Take care. Be safe. I’m gonna go down to the wine cellar and see if the agents have located any survivors that peter says aren’t there. Yeah, not everything’s nina’s fault. Oh, it is where you’re concerned. You got so caught up in nina’s drama that you ignored your own life. Yeah, she took it too far and she knows it, okay? Is this where you start defending nina? I’m not — I’m not defending her. I mean, really, I can’t believe that she would do something… well, she did. …So unforgivable. She did, and she was supposed to be the poster girl for turning your life around. But she didn’T. You know what she did? She showed all of us her true colors. And I won’t be taken by her again. You need… to understand something. There was no mike. There was no mike. Yeah. You’re right. Right. But I cared about him anyway. Okay, but, then if you cared about me, so why did you keep me from my family for months? From my grandson — the same grandson that carly kept you away from? Yeah, that was wrong, and I knew it was wrong back then, and I wish I would have been stronger. I do. I wish I was stronger. It’s just, sonny, I haven’t been close to many people in my life. You know, growing up, love was more like an obligation. If I acted correctly, madeline would love me. Yeah, you told me that your mom was cold to you. Was that a lie, too? No, everything that I told you in nixon falls about myself was true. Right. So everything just about me was a lie. Is that what you’re saying? No, I should have told you the truth.

[ Chuckles ] I just knew that if you knew the truth, you’d have… you’d have no choice but to leave me. So that’s how you treat somebody you love? You con– you con– you controlled me? That’s what you did. You controlled me. Yeah, that’s what I did, because that’s what I know. Madeline was always trying to control me. Valentin was controlling me with sasha, and jax was controlling me with the information he and carly had about nelle. And every single time it broke my heart. And every time you walked away? Yeah, I did. Just like you walked away from me. Britta, come. We have to get you to safety. No, you go. I-I have to help to find jason. If herr morgan is still alive, he will not be happy to know you’re dead. This tunnel isn’t going to last much longer. Anna: Britt! Britt! Jason! Shh! Shh! Do you want the ceiling to collapse on us? Oh, god. It’s good to see you, too, liesl.

[ Drew grunts ] Is she all right? Of course not. Look at her. She has a head injury. No, I’m fine! You’re concussed. I’m fine. I-I need to help drew. Oh , last time I saw you,you were heading o a bridge.

[ Panting ] Not my decision, anna. Okay, you were under peter’s influence. That explains a lot. Perhaps you would like to ring for some tea and crumpets? Or you can continue your chat someplace where the ceiling is not about to collapse and kill us all. I’m not going anywhere without my brother. I’m not leaving. Is there any sign of him? No, nothing, nothing at all. And unfortunately, peter got away. No, he didn’T. He didn’T. I have peter in custody.

Got sei dank. Now we can kill him ourselves. If that’s not an incentive to go… no! I have to find jason. Wait. No, britt. Stop, stop. He would want us to get to safety. We’re not gonna help him for all crushed under here. Don’t you understand? Come on. Look, look, look, look! Drew, go! Get out! Move! Move! Come on.

[ Drew grunts ] Come on. Aah!

How’s sasha? Out of danger. Uh, dr. Navarro was able to stop the hemorrhage. Now she — she’s weak because she’s lost a lot of blood, but she is stable. I told you she was gonna be okay. Can I see her? Soon. We need to transfer her to the icu so we can monitor her. And my son? How is he? The neonatologist, dr. Fleming, is downstairs in the nicu with him now. How long have you known? I just found out. How? You know what? Don’t tell me. Not here. I cannot risk anyone else being able to follow the breadcrumbs that led you here. I don’t think anyone did, but, sure, we can go over it. Great. Great.

[ Breathes deeply ] I’m actually, pretty relieved that you know. Who else knows? Um, maxie and nina. That’s it? Better be. I mean, gladys knows that valentin isn’t really bailey’s father, but that’s all she knows. Look, I really wanted to tell you. I came close, but maxie and I agreed that the fewer people to know, the safer bailey is. Why’d you want to tell me? Because you’re, like, one out of two and a half people in the entire world that I trust. Am I the half? Of course not. Look, I get why you kept it under wraps, but I really wish you would have told me. Peter was poisoning you, and you had a lot of other things going on at the time. With willow. I didn’t want to say it, but, yeah, you had other things on your mind. But I got better. Yeah, and things got a hell of a lot worse. We did not intend for this lie to go on for so long. We thought that peter would be caught months ago and locked away and that maxie could claim bailey as her own. How did you think valentin would react? I was hoping that once he found out peter was involved that he’d understand why we had to do what we did. He might still think that way. Think? Yes. Feel? Who even knew that valentin cassadine had feelings? Turns out there’s a pretty decent and loving father in there. Ugh, I hate the fact that I hurt him. The guy lost his daughter today. I can’t imagine what he’s going through. It’s not saying that you were wrong to walk away from me, but what I had with y-you — okay, listen to me, okay? What we had in nixon falls was not love. It was a lie. I know that’s how you feel. And you’re probably right. But it was close enough for me. Oh, gosh, can you believe that still don’t know anything, you know? Maybe I should just — I should just call the hospital, but they’re not gonna tell me anything ’cause she’s not my daughter. No, she isn’T. Yeah. Sometimes I think about what my life would be like if she was my daughter, you know, if she was telling the truth. And tonight my grandchild would be coming into the world, but… I know it’s pointless to focus in on the… what might have been. Yeah, we do that sometimes. I just — I just hate the waiting around, you know? I just feel so helpless. Yeah, I’m not a fan of it either. If something happens to sasha, that sweet baby… hey, hey, listen to me. It’s gonna be all right. You understand me? Uh, nurse baldwin, could you go down to the nicu and check on my son? I want to tell sasha he’s all right. Yeah, of course. Can I get you anything, call anyone? I just want to be with sasha. Okay, well, I’m praying for you and your son.

[ Monitor beeping ] I’m here, sasha. I’ll be here for you… and our son. We need you with us, ’cause I can’t bear to lose you, and our son — he needs his mom. Sasha? Hey.

Gabi: Oh, just in time. Will you please help me with this zipper?

Jake: Ah, look at you. Where are we going, the oscars?

Gabi: This is not fancy enough to go to the oscars. Come on, I just thought we would go somewhere nice for dinner.

Jake: Do I need to remind you that we’re both unemployed?

Gabi: Jake, we’ve just had a major win. We need to celebrate that victor gave philip the sack.

Jake: I thought we were gonna talk business.

Gabi: We will, but we’ve earned the right to gloat. Oh, you know what would be really nice–

Jake: If we could all just live in peace and harmony for once?

>This is an nbc news special report. Here’s lester holt.

Good day, everyone. We’re coming on the air because authorities in waukesha, wisconsin are giving an update on the tragic events that unfolded at a christmas parade there last night. A red suv crashed into a crowd killing at least five people. A person of interest is in custody. The chief of police there, dan thompson is speaking right now.

On november 21, 2021, a lone subject drove his maroon suv through barricades and into a crowd of people who were celebrating the waukesha christmas parade which resulted in killing five individuals and injuring 48 additional individuals. I just received information that two of the 48 are children and they’re in critical condition. We have information that the suspect prior to the incident was involved in a domestic disturbance, which was just minutes prior, and the suspect left that scene just prior to our arrival to that domestic disturbance. When the suspect was driving through into the crowd, one officer did discharge his firearm and fire shots at the suspect to stop the threat, but due to the amount of people had to stop and stop and did not fire any other additional shots. The officer is on administrative leave as part of protocol. No one was injured as a result of the officer discharging his firearm. The subject was taken into custody a short distance from the scene we’re confident he acted alone. There’s no evidence that this is a terrorist incident. Due to the wind yesterday, there was a power outage in downtown waukesha that further complicated our emergency response. I want to identify the victims that we know of at this time. I say this with great sorrow. Virginia thornton, 79-year-old female. Leanna olmes, 71-year-old female. Tamara durand, 52-year-old female.

Jameswilhelm, 81-year-old male. The suspect involved in this tragic incident is identified as darrell E. Brooks, male, 39 years of age who was a resident of milwaukee. At this time, the waukesha police department is referring five counts of intentional homicide with additional charges based on the investigation, but those will come in time. There are many roads in the downtown area that were closed as investigativee iveors worked through the crime scene. Those roads have since been opened. I will say this, minutes after the incident occurred, i responded to the scene and what I saw out of the chaos and tragedy was heroes. First responders and the community coming together and working together on triaging victims, the fire department working in partnership with the fire department getting these victims to the hospital, fire department transported multiple victims, the chief will talk about that. Officers picked up victims and put them in the squad and rushed them to the hospital and citizens also picked up victims and rushed them to the hospital. There’s also off-duty law enforcement, fire, and ems personnel that were attending this event who immediately got involved and took part in saving lives. I want to thank our community partners partners. I want to dispel some rumors. There was no pursuit that led up to this incident. This is not a terrorist event. I want to thank our first responder partners. It is a long list and i apologize, we apologize if i forgot anyone. Waukesha fire department. No words can express the partnership that we have with the waukesha fire department and how we work together as one in this incident. Mavis mutual aid box alarm system. The chief will talk about that. The suburban mutual aid respond team which we call S.M.A.R.T. Responded. Fbi, atf, the state, the division of criminal investigations, school district of waukesha, the milwaukee police department fusion center, wisconsin state crime lab, wisconsin state patrol. After this press conference, we’ll provide a link on our website for any questions regarding witness information. If there’s any additional video that a citizen might have that can look at this link or any family members or individuals that need to recover property. The waukesha police department website is the only source for information. Do not release information from any other source as it has not been vetted and could lead to false information. Thank you.

Chief howard –. Thank you, dan. Before i get started on behalf of the men and women of the waukesha fire department, i would like to say our prayers go out to the families and the whole community that was affected by yesterday’s tragedy. On the city of waukesha fire department responded to a mass casualty incident yesterday afternoon. All 26 on-duty personnel responded to the incident from five stations. Our closest downtown station was within sight of the parade route. Our units started to spontaneously respond based on radio traffic and dispatch information. We immediately activated our mass casualty protocol and utilized the mavis, our mutual aid system, our mutual box alarm system to the second level to provide us with additional re resources to treat the victims. We received resources from 12 area fire departments. We were also aided greatly by off-duty firefighters and ems personnel, medical personnel and just civilian bystanders. They greatly assisted us with our initial treatment and triage of patients. Patients were transported to six area hospitals with the fire department, ems transporting 22 patients. Law enforcement personnel, bystanders also transported additional victims to the hospital. At this time we believe that 48 people were treated at local hospitals. Though this number might increase based on information being gathered. Like chief thompson, i also had an opportunity, i did respond to the incident. Got there a bit after the chief did. Based on my observations, very very overwhelmed by the response of the community to this tragedy. People banded together to do the best they could to deal with this incident. Last night going out and visiting the fire stations and the people that responded, overwhelmingly our personnel expressed their sincere thanks for everyone who stepped up and assisted with the treatment of the citizens that were injured. Again, our hearts go out to the families and the victims of this senseless tragedy. We appreciate all the assistance and support that has been offered to the city of waukesha fire department.

Mayor riley?

Thank you.

Last night we experienced a senseless tragedy. Many of us were participants in the parade and witnessed these horrific actions. We are all trying to process what we experienced. Our police, firefighters, partners and so many others sprang into action immediately last night to help the people that were injured. For those of you who do not live in waukesha, you need to know that waukesha is a community that helps their neighbors. Waukesha is a community that takes pride in its identity and has a wonderful spirit. Waukesha looks after each other. Waukesha enjoys its celebrations and the entire community joins in those celebrations. We are a close community. Waukesha is a community where many of its residents have lived for generations. Waukesha is also the type of community where new residents tell their friends to move here because it is so special. Waukesha has held what could be described as a norman rockwell type of christmas parade for almost six decades. Last night our wonderful waukesha parade became the scene of a horrific tragedy. Last night that parade became a nightmare. Last night many were severely injured. Last night lives were lost in the middle of what should have been a celebration. Last night many were severely injured, lost their lives and all who were there were traumatized. We experienced a horrific tragedy. We have so much healing that needs to occur. Waukesha, though, will not be defined by the horrific events of last night. We’re a community that will come together. We will help those who experienced a loss of a loved one or injured. We will work together to bring healing. The healing needs to begin now. With that in mind i share the following. Our prayer vigil will be held tonight at 5:00 P.M. At cutler park. The waukesha public library, immediately adjacent will be closing at 4:00 P.M. So the public can utilize that parking lot. The downtown south street parking ramp, which is also immediately near it, will also be open for free parking. We know that members of the community want to help out and help the victims. The waukesha county community foundation and united way of greater milwaukee milwaukeeand waukesha county created the waukesha community fund. This will assist the needs of the families impact and there will be a website on our page to tell you how to access that fund. Many people witnessed traumatic events last evening. If you need to talk to someone, you can call or text 800-985-5990 to be connected to a trained caring counselor and they are available 24/7. That number will also be on our website. Police only call 911 for true emergencies. There will be a resource center set up at carol university for all victims from 2:00 to 6:00 P.M. Tuesday, and 9:00 A.M. To 1:00 P.M. On wednesday. That information will be placed upon our website. The district attorney victim assistance program is also available to provide assistance and an email for that service will be shared on social media. Our community needs to heal from physical injury and emotional trauma. What was taken from us by this senseless act. What we do today and the days ahead is what will define us as a city. I know we’ll come together and help waukesha heal. Thank you.

Dr. Jim seivert?

Good afternoon, everyone. I’m deeply saddened by yesterday’s events and the tremendous impact they are having on both our school community and the larger waukesha community. I want to begin by thanking our partners at the city and the police and fire departments for their leadership and partnership. We are focused on our kids, our staff, and our families, and making resources available to them. We stand with our community and are one of the resources for support as we navigate this tragic event. The school district of waukesha is providing internal assistance as well as resources outside of the district to support kids, staff and families. Should families need guidance on how to address trauma with your children, please do not hesitate to reach out to the student services staff at your child’s school. We are actively dispatching additional support to our schools for staff and students. Your school administration and student services team can connect you with our crisis counseling staff in a very timely manner. School psychologists, social workers, school counselors and community mental health providers are available and trained to support children and families in crisis today and into the future. I also want to thank our surrounding school districts, waukesha county, our local health care partners, the department of public instruction and the governor’s office for their support of the school district of waukesha during this time. We also provided meals today from noon to 1:00 P.M. Across the district and we will do the same tomorrow at the following sites via their main entrance. Butler horning and les paul middle schools as well as north, south and west high schools.

We’re listening to officials in waukesha, wisconsin with the latest after that deadly crash, a vehicle plowing through a crowd that gathered for a parade in that community yesterday. You can hear in the voices of the officials, still a community deeply in shock. But officials there doing their best to rise to the moment to tend to those who have suffered loss or injury. What we’ve learned now is the dead, five people dead, they range in age from 52 to 81. Four of them women. We also learned the number of injured now at 48. Two of them are children listed in critical condition. The other major piece of news coming out of this news conference is the suspect. Mr. Darrell brooks. Officials say he will be charged with counts of homicide. We’ll learn more about that a bit later. I wanted to go to tom lamlamas, anchor of “top story.” He’s in waukesha right now for us. What did we learn about the motive? We heard there had been some kind of domestic disturbance that mr. Brooks was a part of. Do we know how he got from there on to this parade route?

You know, we still don’t know that. That’s the big unknown right now. Also the motivation to sort of floor it once he got on the parade route. This is main street, where the parade was taking place. Where we’re coming to you live, this was one of the impact points. The extreme dance team, that youth dance troupe was out here — somebody is racing by now. That youth dance troupe was here when the car came rushing by, it was headed in this direction. The owner of a bakery over here said it was so chaotic. There were children all over the street. Parents were screaming. When the officer opened fire it led to a theory out here that there was an active shooter, which wasn’t the case. Everyone was scrambling for help. People ran to the storefronts and sheltered in place. Other parents picked up their children and ran to the closest hospital. Five people have died so far. As you mentioned, two children are in surgery right now. The entire community is praying for them. From what we understand about the suspect right now, the man you mentioned, darrell brooks, from what we understand, he got an insufficiently low bond, he had been incarcerated, he was able to bond out on what some are calling — especially the district attorney here in milwaukee, an insufficient bond, so he was able to get out. So that may have been part of the reason why he was running. He had a domestic violence incident and he had a prior one before. That’s one of the reasons he was locked up. Interestingly enough he had used his car as a weapon before. He had run over a woman he shares a child with at a gas station. So this man from his history, his criminal history, was incredibly violent. Now he’s behind bars and more charges are on the way.

Tom, thank you.

Let me bring in retired seattle police chief, carmen best. As we heard in tom’s report and from — i apologize. We’re apparently going to cedric alexander, former director of public safety in dekalb county. Apologize for that. Let me put the same question to you. We understand that an officer did discharge their weapon in an effort to stop this car. How difficult is that in an environment where you have so many people around?

Well, certainly any time that you fire a weapon you always have to be aware of your backdrop. In this particular case, where you had a speeding vehicle that was clearly causing death and mayhem in front of witnesses that everyone could see. The officer clearly must have felt he had an opportunity to fire rounds without any incident persons being in his line of fire. I can only imagine, too that firing had to stop immediately because that was still a moving vehicle and you still had people there on the scene. So, usually your training will assess that you don’t shoot at moving vehicles, but in the case — in an extreme case such as this, this is entirely different. And the justification of it from what we know was well within his right and he tried to do everything he could to stop that vehicle from hurting and injuring others.

The police chief there noting that the officer did fire then stopped firing because of concern for the surroundings and the chaotic movements around him. Clearly a lot of questions that will continue to be asked about the police response and what is known about this suspect and his time in the criminal justice system that led up to last night’s tragic event. That concludes our coverage. We’ll have much more tonight on nbc “nightly news.” For now, I’m lester holt, nbc news, new york. Good day, everyone.’S fine. No, she’s right. I did try and steal her company. I don’t blame her that she wants me gone. But I do blame her that she started this war between us because she has hated me since the day I moved in here. But whenever I try–I try, try, tried to rise above her pettiness. But I don’t know if you know this about me, rafe, but I suck at rising above.

Rafe: Would you know a lot of people fail at rising above gabi’s crap.

Ava: Yeah, but you know, like, I shouldn’t let her get into my head. I know what she’s doing. And I still, she still makes me feel so insecure about you and nicole.

Rafe: Come on, we’re– we’re so past that.

Ava: I know. Look, I know, I know, except that you and nicole feel like you can’t be around each other, and I feel bad about that. You know, she is my only friend. You’ve been completely upfront with me. You know, maybe we should all just hang out together again. Right, you know, I could call her, invite her over tonight. Like you said, I always make enough food for an army–

Rafe: Will you please stop talking about nicole?

Ej: No, no. No.

Nicole: No, no, no, what? But eric’s not asking for anything.

Ej: And neither are you, and that’s a problem. Why are you turning down spousal support?

Nicole: Because I don’t need it or deserve it.

Ej: Bull. He not only walked out on you, he walked out, leaving you to take care of his niece and her infant son.

Nicole: But I love them.

Ej: Irrelevant. You’re giving room and board to his niece and her kid in salem while he’s playing albert schweitzer in africa.

Nicole: Xander said something like that too.

Ej: And he’s not always wrong. By the time I’m done here, you’re going to look like the lonely victim of an uncaring husband and an opportunistic brute.

Nicole: But I’m the one that blew up the marriage.

Ej: That’s exactly what eric wants you to think. But from now on, you’ll be dealing with me.

Jake: Ej’s here. Uh, let’s go somewhere else.

Gabi: I’m not afraid of him.

Jake: You’re not afraid of anything.

Gabi: Excuse me, sorry to interrupt, nicole. I just wanted to tell your boss over here that he shouldn’t get too comfortable in my mansion because I’m still having my lawyers look into how he managed to steal it from me.

Ej: Don’t you have bigger problems to deal with? Like finding a new place for your little vanity project? I hear phil gave the two of you the old heave ho after an aborted attempt to overthrow him.

Jake: Gabi, let’s go get a table.

Gabi: And he is paying for that. And gabi chic is gonna come back stronger than ever. My house–I’m gonna get it back.

[Suspenseful music]

Ej: Where the hell did you get that necklace?

Sami: Mom, what are you talking about?

Marlena: Sami, I’ve been locked up too.

Sami: You got arrested?

Marlena: No, no. I’m chained to a wall in the dimera crypt.

Sami: Oh, my god. Is ej doing this to you because of me?

Marlena: No, it wasn’t ej.

Sami: Then who did it?

Marlena: Oh, sami, you won’t believe me when I tell you.

Evil kristen: If I let you free, how do I know you won’t try to escape?

John: Well, I guess you’re just gonna have to trust me.

Evil kristen: It’s kind of a big risk, isn’t it? Hmm. Then again, this would be a lot more fun if I didn’t have to do all the work. Ooh. This has been a date we’ve had from the very beginning.

[Gasps] Oh-ho-ho, so predictable.

John: Please let me go. I need to get to–

Evil kristen: No, you don’t want her; you want me.

John: No, no.

Evil kristen: You want me! You’ve always wanted me, and you can’t resist because you’re mine. You’re mine. You’re mine, you’re mine. O man, that’s a whole lot of wrinkly

Rafe: I’m sorry. I am sorry, I did not– I didn’t mean to snap at you. Just–after this week, and here we are, we’re finally alone, and we’re about to have a really nice dinner, and I just– we don’t need to be talking about nicole.

Ava: I was just trying to be nice.

Rafe: Okay, I get that. It’s just–we need to focus on ourselves, right? We can’t let gabi do that. We can’t let her come between us, you know? The only reason that she brought up nicole’s name was to get onto your skin. You know that.

Ava: I know, I know that, I do, but you, you just– you got so mad. You don’t normally blow up like that.

Rafe: Eva, I’m the police commissioner. There was a homicide in my kitchen. I had to put eli on the case because my girlfriend was the prime suspect. And my sister and the aforementioned girlfriend, they have turned my house into a war zone. So I’m sorry if I’m a little edgy.

Ava: It’s all right. Turned your life upside-down.

Ava: And there we are, talking, not about the cubs game but about feelings.

Ava: [Laughs] You hate that.

Rafe: No, listen, I get it. You gotta do it sometimes, right? But it’s just– I think you were right. We need to focus on us and simplify things and oh, my god I would give my right arm for a boring night, okay?

Ava: Okay. I’ll see what I can do about that.

[Gentle music]

Oh, at the market today, they were having a special on san marzano tomatoes, so I bought a case. Boring enough for you?


Ej: I asked you where you got that necklace.

Jake: Watch the way you talk to her, pal.

Gabi: Why do you care? Oh–is it–is it yours? Oh, I was right! You were sleeping with rafe.

Nicole: What?

Gabi: I found it outside on the ground. I told ava belonged to a woman he didn’t want her to know about–mainly you.

Nicole: That is not my necklace.

Gabi: Then why is he so hot and bothered about it? He gave it to you, and you lost it on the cheating side of town.

Ej: Would you shut up and listen? It’s samantha’s necklace. I bought it for her in tuscany.

Gabi: Oh.

Ej: You say you found it. So samantha didn’t give it to you.

Gabi: No.

Ej: So when did you find it?

Gabi: Just a few months ago. Just about the time she left town.

Sami: You’ve been possessed by the devil again? I thought it was like the chicken pox–I thought it could only happen to you once.

Marlena: Sami, listen–

Sami: Great, now I have to take “my mother being possessed by the devil” off my list of things I never thought I’d have to worry about again. Wait a second. Wait, mom, if you’re possessed by the devil, why are you telling me this? And if you’re him, you wouldn’t want me to know, right?

Marlena: I’ve gotten a temporary reprieve. He took over susan banks.

Sami: Susan banks–why?

Marlena: To get to john.

Sami: Mom. Mom, are you okay?

Marlena: Honey, I’m– I’m so scared. I’m afraid we might lose john.

Evil kristen: You and I were so in love.

John: That was a long time ago, kristen.

Evil kristen: But you remember, don’t you? I know you do. When we were together, we couldn’t keep our hands off of each other.

[Tense music]

John: I remember.

Evil kristen: Then let’s relive the past. Make love to me, john. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

[Tense music]

Evil kristen: Mm! Ah! You bit me, you son of a bitch.

John: Yeah. And you taste like…

[Spits] Do you really think I was gonna give up on doc?

Evil kristen: You will pay for that, john black.

Rafe: Mmm. Okay, this one really is my favorite.

Ava: Mm. It’s my mom’s recipe. Really is the definition of comfort food.

Rafe: And why would you need comfort food after this week?

Ava: Rafe, um, is it okay if I just talk just a little bit?

Rafe: If you have to.

Ava: [Chuckles] You know, when I thought that i was really gonna go to prison and you didn’t believe me about carmine, it dawned on me that I could lose you. It scared me. I mean, you may not believe it, but all this time here that I’ve been living with you, it’s– it’s been the happiest I’ve ever been. And I did come from a pretty miserable life, so the bar is set kind of low.

[Both laugh]

Rafe: Yeah, well.

Ava: But…

Rafe: But, uh…

Ava: No, I do. I really love our life together. I love talking to you about anything and everything. Even if you don’t know squat about movies.

Rafe: Well, I know “the big lebowski” is better than “citizen kane”.

Ava: Oh, g–ugh. That’s because you have dulled your senses by watching so many sports on tv.

Rafe: Oh, yeah? And who is it who said “an appreciation of sports is the hallmark of an inquiring mind”?

Ava: You.

Rafe: Yeah, that’s right.

Ava: Mm-hmm, yes. The same guy. The guy who does not know how to pronounce cou-pon.

Rafe: There is nothing wrong with cue-pon.

Ava: [Laughing]

Rafe: No.

Ava: No, no. You wanna know what I love most of all?

Rafe: Hmm.

Ava: You. God, I love you.

Rafe: Is that so? I don’t know what to say.

Ava: Is it because you’re overwhelmed or because you don’t feel the same way?

Gabi: Well, as always, swell talking to you.

Ej: I want that necklace back.

Gabi: Yeah, well, people in hell want ice water.

Ej: It’s my property. I paid for it.

Gabi: The mansion was my property, and you took it, so I’m gonna take this.

Nicole: She almost gave me a heart attack. I thought she knew about me and rafe. Hey, are you okay?

Ej: [Clears throat] I was just thinking about that night. The last night I saw samantha. I kicked her out, and she said she was coming to ask gabi to let her stay in the guest room, trying to badger me into some kind of reconciliation. And when she didn’t return, I just figured she changed her mind and never went to see gabi. But if gabi found the necklace, then she must’ve been there.

Nicole: But gabi said she didn’t talk to her. I don’t think she would lie about that.

Ej: No. So what happened? And how did the necklace end up on the ground?

Sami: Okay, mom, you need to loop the police into this call, okay? So we’ll reach the police, we’ll tell them where you are, and they can come help you. They can rescue you, and then they can trace this phone, and they can come get me–

Marlena: Sami, I don’t seem to be able to make outgoing calls.

Sami: Just keep trying. Mom. Mom? Mom, can you hear me?

Evil kristen: Hello, samantha. It’s been a long time.

Sami: Who is this? And what the hell have you done with my mother?

Evil kristen: She can’t help you with your stupid problems. She’s in enough trouble of her own.

[Tense music]

Sami: Who the hell was that? O man, that’s a whole lot of wrinkly

Evil kristen: Oh, marlena, marlena, marlena. You have been a naughty girl.

Marlena: And you have been a careless one.

Evil kristen: Are you talking about this? Wasn’t it fun for you to hear samantha’s voice? Although honestly, I mean, just between us girls, isn’t she the most useless person on the planet? I mean. And now that she’s being, you know, held captive, what good could she possibly do you?

Marlena: Is she all right? You know who’s kidnapped her?

Evil kristen: No. My lips are sealed. Unlike how they were a short time ago when I was with john. Oh–do you mind?

Marlena: Is john all right?

Evil kristen: Ooh. He’s better than all right. He’s basking in the afterglow of our love.

Marlena: We both know that you’re lying. John never touched you. And if he did, it was simply to shove you away. I know that. I can feel that. Because I can still feel the unbreakable bond that john and I share.

Ava: I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I have this bad habit of putting you on the spot.

Rafe: No–

Ava: No, you know what? You don’t have to answer the question. I did not say “I love you” to force a reply. So you know, let’s just– let’s just get back to eating and, um, talking about your terrible taste in movies.

Rafe: No, hey. First of all, I don’t have terrible taste. And second of all, I get what you’re saying. It’s been great having you here. It really adds–I– I’ve been so happy to have you here. I mean, we–we fit, right? And look, if I don’t say what you want me to say, that does not mean that I don’t care about you a lot. Because I do, right? And I promise you that I am committed to you. Only you.

Jake: You really gonna keep that necklace?

Gabi: Why not?

Jake: It’s not yours. It’s sami’S.

Gabi: Sami’s not here, and will says no one knows where she’s at, so it’s not like I can give it to her. Plus she owes me.

Jake: For what?

Gabi: Well, you wanted to give ej kristen’s letter, and I did her a solid and gave it back to her.

Jake: Ej ended up with the letter anyway.

Gabi: That’s not my fault. But that was really funny when the world found out that she was cheating on him with lucas. Did wipe that smirk off his face for once.

Jake: Yeah, well, he seems to have rebounded just fine. What’s the deal with the two of them, anyway? Weren’t they married at one point?

Gabi: Couple of times.

Jake: Huh. And what, now they’re back together?

Gabi: I don’t know, but I just–I can’t believe that he’s over sami. I mean, even when they were on the outs, he always seemed obsessed with her. I–I just got an idea.

Jake: Oh, boy. Here we go again.

Gabi: You know, ej says he hates sami, despises her. But I don’t know, I still think she’s his achilles heel. If we want to pay him back, I think sami could be the key.

Nicole: You know, maybe sami dropped that necklace on accident.

Ej: And never bothered to call rafe or gabi to ask about it?

Nicole: I don’t know. I mean, maybe she didn’t want it anymore. Made it very clear that the marriage was over. Maybe she threw it away.

Ej: Nicole, it was worth money. And this is samantha we’re talking about. Even if it was too painful for her to wear, she would have summoned up the strength to pawn it.

Nicole: It does seem a little out of character. There’s just something strange about all this.

[Phone ringing] Uknown number.

Nicole: Must be a telemarketer.

Ej: Maybe. I’ll see. Yes?

Sami: Ej, thank god you answered.

Ej: Who is this? Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Ava: I know–I know how much you hate it, but I’m really glad we talked tonight. We got all our cards out on the table.

Rafe: Yeah. I liked it, actually.

Ava: How about a toast, huh?

Rafe: All right.

Ava: All right. Hmm. To putting mistakes behind us.

Rafe: A fresh start.

Jake: So I thought we were coming here to talk about how to get gabi chic back, but here we are, talking about revenge again.

Gabi: I’m multitasking. Try to keep up.

Jake: Okay. So how is it that sami’s gonna help us pay ej back?

Gabi: I don’t know yet, but we can start by dragging her down, bring her to salem, and then we can figure that out.

Sami: Ej, did you hear me?

Ej: Is anyone there?

Sami: Ej! Ej, can you hear me? Stupid batteries.

Nicole: No one there?

Ej: I guess not.

Nicole: Told you it was a telemarketer.

Ej: Actually, it’s strange. For a minute there, I could have sworn I heard samantha’s voice, and then the phone went dead.

Susan: What happened to my lip?

Demon marlena: Apparently your friend over there likes it rough.

Susan: Oh! Oh, no, did you–

John: No. Even under satan’s spell, I remained true to marlena.

Demon marlena: Well, I didn’t have very high hopes for that plan anyway. So I guess I’ll just have to go to plan B.

Susan: Well, what’s that? Huh?

Demon marlena: Plan b? Oh. That’s where you both die.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Jack: Forgive me, son.

Finn: This– this is unbelievable. This lie. Everything that I thought I knew about you. You’re my biological father with sheila, hiding behind an adoption? What kind of man are you?

Jack: Not a very good one. I’m sorry, son.

Finn: I wanted to be like you. I looked up to you. And you’re just a liar.

Jack: Get it all out, finn. Get it all out. That’s the only way we’re going to get past this and continue on as father and son. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do.

Carter: Hey, man, I need your opinion.

Zende: Sure.

Carter: Katie’s putting together a publicity packet for the forrester foundation and she asked me to weigh in on paris’ head shots. What do you think?

Zende: Well, I mean, it depends on what the pamphlet is trying to accomplish.

Carter: Fundraising.

Zende: Then this one. I mean, they’re both beautiful. How can they not be? But this infectious smile lets people know that this woman is on top of her business. She’s not frivolous and any investment in her cause, it’s money well spent.

Carter: Damn, dude. That came out quick.

Zende: Paris is my favorite topic. I mean, I can talk about her, think about her for days.

Thomas: All right. Look. I know that this is probably completely unexpected, right? But you know what? If there is a chance for you and me, then we should explore that now before you’re fully committed.

Paris: You’re right. This is the last thing that I expected, tonight.

Thomas: Right, doesn’t look that good either. I mean, I’m kind of coming after you, my own cousin’s girlfriend. But it is important we find out now because if there’s a chance for us… I don’t want to lose it.

Zende: After my marriage didn’t work out, I said, “now that’s it. Never again. Back to the old player ways,” but then paris comes in, checking off every single box, being everything I’ve ever wanted. Now, not to mention those eyes. Oof.

Carter: Dude, you’ve got it bad.

Zende: I am not even ashamed. I am honored to be the guy that paris wants to be with.

Carter: I get why. Paris is something special.

Zende: You never lie. And trust me, I’m not going to lose her.

Paris: Wow. I never saw this coming.

Thomas: Neither did I, I– I got to say. I mean, look, I knew that I was attracted to you, for sure. But, the rest of it… I wasn’t sure, and– but I decided i would put it out there. I would let you know how I feel. And that’s, that’s good, right? Openness and honesty.

Paris: Uh, you make a point.

Thomas: Okay, good. Well, then it’s a good thing I put it out there. And I was honest with you. And, you know, you now know how I feel. Maybe you feel the same way?

Paris: Thomas, I’m touched and you’re a great guy but i think we should remain friends.

Jack: You actually think that we can come back from this?

Jack: I don’t expect it to be easy, but we’re family. We can get past anything.

Finn: Oh, so now that your secret’s out, you’re going to play the family card? This family is built on lies, to mom and to me. Our foundation is rotten because of your betrayal. Your affair with sheila carter– there’s no getting past that. No one can deliver your mom’s homemade short ribs.

Zende: Now, I have been talking way too much. How are things with you?

Carter: Focused on work. Keeps me out of trouble.

Zende: No personal life?

Carter: Not so much.

Zende: You okay with that?

Carter: There’s been a lot of drama these last few months.

Zende: Yeah, no kidding. You come out of all of that, okay?

Carter: Bruised and battered, but I survived. You know what, no. I did better than that. I am– I am moving forward with optimism.

Zende: Good. I would love to see you in a happy relationship.

Carter: Like you?

Zende: Like me. I have found my future and her name is paris.

Thomas: You know, if you want time to rethink that whole, “let’s just be friends thing,” I won’t hold you to it.

Paris: Thomas, you’re– you’re funny, you’re fun, you’re smart and talented and you know, not, not too bad to look at.

Thomas: Okay. All of that, all of that and much more could be yours.

Paris: I am in a relationship, as you well know, with your cousin.

Thomas: Yes. And yeah, me moving in on zende’s girlfriend not exactly the best look, but what’s the saying? Like, “nothing ventured. Nothing gained?”

Paris: Thomas, you really are a great guy, it’s just–

Thomas: You’re spoken for. I get it. But I had to tell you how I really feel because if I didn’t, I would have regretted it. And now, you know.

Finn: So this, this is who jack finnegan really is. A man who lied to his family for decades. A man who betrayed his wife with another woman and then tricked her into raising the child from that affair. I mean, how could you? How could you even live with yourself?

Jack: I was protecting you from sheila. She wasn’t equipped to raise a child, a child that li desperately wanted. It all came into place and seemed like the right thing to do at the time.

Finn: You call this right?

Jack: We had a good life. You were raised in a stable environment with two loving parents. Li got the child that she desperately wanted, that we weren’t able to conceive. My mistake was sheila and I’ll regret it for my entire life. Other than one thing. You. And with that, I didn’t want to blow up our family.

Finn: Did it ever occur to you that you should see what mom thought of all this? That you should have trusted and respected her enough to let her decide how she wanted to handle this? Would it be any worse than we are right now? How are mom and I supposed to look at you the same way again? In an instant, you have become a stranger that could break our trust in this unimaginable way.

Jack: Nothing is broken, not permanently. Look me in my eyes. Give me another chance. Please. You and li are my world, my everything. Finn. I love you. I’m so sorry. Please. Let me fix this. Just please say, “you forgive me.” Is struggling to manage your type 2 diabetes

Carter: Dude, I know you’re serious about paris but I didn’t expect you to throw around big words like future.

Zende: No one is more surprised than me. You know, like I said, I didn’t come back from overseas looking for love. I was going to keep it casual or keep it moving. I even said that a few times aloud so there would be no misunderstanding.

Carter: Yeah, I overheard some models a while back. One was warning the other.

Zende: About me?

Carter: “Zende’s fun but don’t get emotionally involved because he won’T.”

Zende: I mean, to be fair, I had every intention of keeping it like that until this little fireball burst into my life and changed everything about who I thought I was, what I thought I wanted.

Carter: So when you say, “paris is your future…”

Zende: Man, everything has been better since she walked through that door that one random afternoon. And there is no way that I’m going back to life without her.

Paris: If I weren’t in a happy relationship, this might be different.

Thomas: Timing is everything but hey, I appreciate the ego boost.


Paris: And if you’re concerned, I won’t say anything about this to zende. I don’t want to cause any friction between cousins.

Thomas: Thank you.

Paris: And I also don’t want things to be weird between us, either. I mean, we see each other every day at work. We share this apartment.

Thomas: And there you go. That’s why I made a decision. I’m moving out.

Li: Who are you?

Jack: You know better than anyone.

Li: The man I married would have never made a mockery of the life– the family I thought we’d built together. He would have never looked me in my face night after night for decades and lied.

Jack: I was protecting you.

Li: From the truth?

Jack: Yes. A painful truth.

Li: Do you have any idea how insulting that is? How condescending? I’m not a child, jack. I don’t need you deciding dictating what I can and can’t know about my own life. And I’m not talking little white lies, jack. You knew all those years sheila was finn’s birth mother and you kept me in the dark. And, if that wasn’t hurtful enough, to now find out that you had an affair with her? You turned to another woman, jack!

Jack: Because i was young and stupid. And the thought of being a responsible adult just terrified me. So I– I– I got caught up.

Finn: That’s excuses.

Jack: I made some mistakes. I should’ve told you both and I regret that. But my love for you and your mother, it’s the most honest, most real thing about me.

Li: How can I believe anything that comes out of your mouth? You had a child with another woman. We adopted him, we raised him together. You never mentioned you were finn’s biological father. Not a word. You must think I’m the biggest fool who ever lived.

Jack: Oh, please, li. I adore you–

Li: Don’T. You’re a stranger, I can’t even look at anymore.

Jack: Well, we should go. We should talk this out back at the hotel.

Li: You are not coming back to the hotel with me. The way I feel right now, I don’t know if I ever want to see you again. On the outside, I looked fine.

Carter: Being in love suits you, zende. I’m happy for you. And if there’s anything I can do for you and paris, just say the word.

Zende: Just keep being a good friend of both of us.

Carter: You can count on it.

Paris: Wait, you’re moving out?

Thomas: Yeah.

Paris: So you bought a house and you’re just now mentioning it?

Thomas: Not yet. I haven’t bought a house yet. For the time being, I’m just going to move into a really nice hotel room. And there I’ll have room service, I’ll have a gym, I’ll have conveniently located bar and it’ll be like vacation, except for, you know, close to work.

Paris: Which kind of defeats the purpose. Are you sure about this? Because I’d hate to think that you feel uncomfortable around me because there’s no reason. And I’m not offended by what you said. It won’t become a problem between us.

Thomas: I appreciate that. I really do. But my uh, what do you wanna call it? A declaration? That– that’s not the reason that I’m moving out. It’s just time. It’s time for me to get out of here, to have my own place. It’s time for you to be able to make this place your own. Hey, how exciting is that, to actually decorate this place yourself? Come on, you’re looking forward to that.

Paris: But this was your apartment, first. I don’t want you to feel like you need to leave.

Thomas: I don’T. Look, that was always the plan. I was going to move out. Plus, I don’t want to get lazy about house hunting. It’d be so easy to just keep staying here but I don’t want to do that. Now look, you are one of the best roommates I’ve ever had. You’re definitely the prettiest.

Paris: Oh, you say the nicest things.

Thomas: I only say true things. Look, I really have enjoyed living with you, paris,. You’re a great roommate. And I think I’ve said everything else about a thousand times and probably overplayed it. So you know what? I’m going to skip to the other part where I tell you I am a little disappointed. I am disappointed that you aren’t willing to see where this is going to go. But if you want to be with zende, then I’m happy for the both of you and i wish you both the best.

Paris: I’ll take that.

Jack: Li. Come on. Don’t shut me out. We can get through this.

Finn: No. You heard her. Mom doesn’t want anything to do with you, so you need to respect her wishes and leave her alone. I never thought I could be disappointed in you. I didn’t even think it that was possible. I looked up to you, I trusted you. We were so close.

Jack: I made a terrible mistake. But it doesn’t wipe away our family history and our relationship. I’m still the man who raised you. I’m still the man you loved and married.

Finn: No, no. See, that man had integrity. That man was honest. He wouldn’t betray the people he was supposed to love. And this whole family history thing you’re trying to fall back on, is based off of infidelity and lies. All right, you plotted with sheila to hide the facts about my birth. And I’m a product of that betrayal to my mother. And now it’s affecting steffy and my family!

Steffy: Baby, babe. You don’t have to do this.

Finn: No. He needs to hear the extent of the damage that he’s caused. All mom ever did was love you. And the whole time you were lying. Every single day. You had a son who idolized you and wanted to be just like you, especially when it came to being a father. But you are the last person that I want to emulate when it comes to family. Because I’m going to love my wife respectfully, faithfully and honestly and I’m going to raise my kids, kelly and hayes, with truth and respect, not secrets and lies!

Jack: Son, please…

Finn: Don’t call me that! Leave!

Jack: No. You can’t just wipe away our family history–

Finn: Go! Leave now!

Jack: Please. Li.

Finn: Go.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Chanel goes to Paulina’s. Paulina comes out and says “Look what the cat dragged in”. Chanel explains to Paulina that she had a dream where Paulina said exactly that and then went on to rip in to her about how she ruined her life and said she wasn’t her daughter anymore. Chanel tells Paulina to go ahead and let her have it. Paulina responds that she has one thing to say and that is that she’s sorry.

Johnny questions what Steve means by asking if he noticed anything strange about Marlena. Steve says there’s been inconsistent behavior, secrecy, and she seems really focused on keeping Julie away from Doug.

Julie and Shawn excitedly bring Doug back home in a wheelchair. Kayla questions what Doug is doing there while Belle adds that she thought they were just going to visit. Julie says she thought wrong. Belle asks how it happened. Julie says it’s all thanks to Belle since her court order allowed her to make medical decisions for her husband, so she made one and brought him home for Thanksgiving where he belongs whether Marlena likes it or not.

John remains chained up in the DiMera Crypt. Susan encourages him to hang in there because she had a vision that someone was going to save them by the end of the day. Devil Marlena then enters and announces that it’s Thanksgiving. The Devil calls it the day he gets to see the blood of innocence spilt.

Chanel questions Paulina being sorry. Paulina hopes she can forgive her. Chanel expected Paulina to demand an apology for her after she busted up her wedding and told everyone that Lani is daughter. Paulina admits she would’ve preferred it to go down a different way, but Chanel told the truth which is a hell of a lot more than she did. Paulina says she’s only mad at herself and she’s ashamed of calling Chanel a liar in the church as she was so desperate to keep Lani and Abe from finding out. Paulina adds that it’s good that Olivia had Chanel’s back. Chanel worries that everything is a mess now. Paulina calls it her own mess and says it’s time that she owns it. Chanel jokes that she wishes she could freeze this moment because she doesn’t remember Paulina ever admitting that she was wrong before. Paulina says it’s Thanksgiving and they usually do turkey or ham, but this year she’s eating crow.

Julie knows how much Doug missed being home and offers him sparkling water. Belle questions Shawn as to how this happened. Shawn explains that he couldn’t stop her after she saw Doug like that and she insisted on bringing him home. Shawn admits he would’ve done the same thing given his condition. Belle asks what Kayla thinks but she doesn’t know yet. Kayla asks Julie if they told her at the hospital what medication they were giving Doug. Julie shows Kayla what they gave her. Kayla notes that it’s a very strong tranquilizer and the dose is very high on the label. Julie worries that Marlena prescribed those so she has drugged Doug in to insensibility.

Johnny tells Steve that he’s sure Marlena is doing whatever she thinks is best for Doug and asks if he’s missing something. Steve says he can’t put his finger on it but Marlena is not herself. Johnny asks who she is then. Steve asks if he’s sure he hasn’t noticed anything odd or strange behavior that he couldn’t explain. Johnny says not really but then admits it was kind of weird when he saw her at the Crypt. Steve asks what crypt.

Susan tells the Devil that if he wants to kill John, he’ll have to do it over her dead body. The Devil responds that it’s tempting but he has a higher purpose for her. The Devil declares that he is not going to kill John, because Susan is going to.

Johnny tells Steve about how he saw Marlena coming out of the DiMera Crypt dressed like the Devil on Halloween and that she said she was wearing the costume in support of his film. Steve questions what Marlena was doing at the Crypt. Johnny responds that she said she wanted to pay respects to Stefano. Steve can’t believe it and asks why she would do that. Johnny explains that Marlena said Stefano was the first one to realize she was possessed and that he risked his life to save her. Steve asks if Johnny went inside the Crypt. Johnny says he wanted to so he could scout for his movie but Marlena stopped him and wouldn’t let him in.

Susan tells the Devil that she would never ever hurt John and that there is nothing that would ever make her break one of the commandments. The Devil then warns Susan that if she doesn’t take the dagger and kill John Black, then he will kill her son EJ in front of everyone at Thanksgiving dinner.

Julie tells Kayla that Doug is not taking any more of Marlena’s pills and he’s not going to back to Bayview as he’s staying here for good.

Paulina brings up Chanel accusing her of loving Lani more than her which she says is not true. Chanel argues that her actions speak otherwise since she asked Lani to be her matron of honor. Paulina says she never meant for that to happen as she was going to tell Lani the truth but then they got the news that Abe got shot and she saw how much she loved Abe at the hospital, she didn’t have the heart to tell Lani that Abe was not really her father so the next day when she pressed her the next day about what she was going to tell her, she just blurted out the first thing that came to her head. Paulina thinks that she’d be a better liar after all her practice. Chanel complains about how Paulina has always talked up Lani with high praise, like she wishes she was more like Lani. Paulina acknowledges it’s true that she idealized Lani, but guesses that’s because she never got to be her mother like she did for Chanel. Paulina talks about the moments they shared like when she wanted ice cream after getting her tonsils out when she was six. Chanel recalls that being when she learned to bake. Chanel says she fell asleep in Paulina’s arms that night and she didn’t move her the whole night. Paulina points out that she and Lani never had that. Chanel adds that they never had the problems either. Chanel brings up hiding from a bees nest when she was 9. Paulina says that Chanel was the most precious thing in the world to her. Paulina declares that Lani may have been her first born daughter, but Chanel will always be her baby as they hug. Chanel knows how excited Paulina was for her life with Abe. Paulina tells her that what happened at the wedding was not her fault as Olivia believes Marlena broke her confidence and told her the truth. Chanel confirms that Marlena told her but because she wanted her to feel better about Paulina choosing Lani as her matron of honor. Paulina asks if Marlena encouraged her to tell her secret at the wedding. Chanel says no and that Marlena told her to hold her peace but at the wedding, she kept looking at Marlena and it was like this feeling came over her like Marlena wanted her to tell and she couldn’t resist…

Susan pleads with the Devil not to touch her son as he’s not perfect but he does have a pure heart. Susan asks why the Devil is doing this to them. The Devil responds that John would not give in to the temptation of Kristen and couldn’t let go of his own sense of decency. Susan calls John a decent man. The Devil says this is where that got him. Susan argues that it kept The Devil from fully possessing Marlena. The Devil responds that she is still fighting him but he knows how to get inside her heart and break it. The Devil declares that all he has to do is stop John’s heart from beating.

Shawn and Belle set the table for Thanksgiving. Belle wonders if Doug will come out of this. Shawn doesn’t know but he thinks he saw something in Doug’s eyes that his grandfather is still in there. Shawn adds that he also saw fear so they wonder what or who Doug is afraid of.

The Devil tells Susan that it’s time and urges her to drive the dagger in to John’s heart then watch the life flow out of him. The Devil warns that when he comes back, there better be a body to bury or else her son will be joining his father. Devil Marlena then exits the Crypt.

Paulina doesn’t want to waste any more time talking about Marlena as it’s Thanksgiving. Paulina suggests they whip up a Thanksgiving feast but Chanel reveals she can’t stay because Johnny offered to fly her to Italy. Paulina asks if she can’t put it off and have Johnny join them for Thanksgiving. Chanel says she still needs time to process everything and hopes she can understand. Paulina asks if she will be home for Christmas as they have never been apart for Christmas. Chanel says she’ll do her best but she has to go pack a bag. Paulina stops her to say she loves her. Chanel says she knows as she heads to her room.

Doug remains silent as he stares on. Julie sits with him to try to get through to him. Julie sings to Doug as Kayla watches on. Julie reminds Doug that they sang the song together and pleads for him to come back to her.

Shawn asks what Belle thinks Doug would be scared of. Belle says it sounds crazy to even say it, but John said that Doug told him that it was Marlena who tried to kill him and Julie. Belle thought Doug was confused or it was dementia. Shawn asks if she seriously thinks Marlena tried to kill Doug and Julie.

Steve questions Marlena not wanting Johnny to go in to the Crypt. Johnny says she claimed there was a big rat inside. Steve asks if she said anything about John. Johnny says no and asks why. Steve says he’s just trying to track him down. Johnny asks if John is missing. Steve says he’s probably on a case but he’s just filling in blanks. Steve apologizes for all the questions and says he’ll let him go. Johnny asks if he’s sure everything is okay. Steve claims everything is fine and wishes him a Happy Thanksgiving. Johnny questions Steve not going in to the Pub. Steve says not yet as there is something he has to check out first.

Susan asks God how she can kill an innocent man and cries about how it’s not easy. John knows Susan is afraid for her son but he also knows the Devil is going nowhere near EJ.

Devil Marlena goes home but Paulina confronts her at the door and says she has a bone to pick with her. Marlena calls it a pleasant surprise but Paulina says there’s nothing pleasant about it. Marlena guesses she’s upset because Abe left her at the altar. Paulina blames Marlena for telling her secret to Chanel and asks who she thinks she is by messing with her life and family. Marlena explains that Chanel felt rejected by Paulina and that she didn’t value her, so she wanted Chanel to know why Paulina chose Lani as her matron of honor. Paulina complains that she told Marlena her secret in confidence. Marlena claims that she didn’t mean to hurt anybody and asks why she would.

Susan asks John how he knows that the Devil is going after EJ. John tells her that he’s dealt with the Devil before and his whole goal is to poison good, kind souls like Susan’s. John adds that he just wants Susan to be forever branded as a murderer. Susan argues that EJ is her only son and the thought of leaving him to the Devil is too much. Susan tells John that she’s sorry and asks God to forgive her as she raises the dagger.

Paulina says that Marlena is all smiles and sunshine now, but she’s going to file a complaint to the medical board so that Marlena loses her license and her job. Paulina asks if that will cut through Marlena’s “devil may care” attitude which Marlena laughs at. Paulina asks if she thinks this is funny. Marlena responds that she thinks it’s sad and that Paulina is projecting. Paulina asks what the hell she’s talking about. Marlena thinks Paulina just wants to destroy her career like Chanel destroyed her marriage. Marlena adds that Abe and Lani are never coming back to her. Marlena declares that she’s not the liar and hypocrite, Paulina is. Marlena reiterates that Paulina will never have her family or Abe back. Marlena tries to head inside but Paulina stops her and says she’s not finished with her as she calls her a cold hearted bitch. Devil Marlena turns around with her yellow eyes as the Devil asks Paulina who she is calling a bitch.

Johnny goes to Paulina’s and tells Chanel that he got nervous when he didn’t hear from her. Chanel asks if everything is good. Johnny confirms that Allie agreed to watch the bakery while Chanel is gone. Johnny asks if she told Paulina. Chanel confirms that she did and it wasn’t as awful as she dreamed because she expected the worst. Chanel remarks that when Paulina is upset, she can unleash holy hell…

The Devil warns Paulina to let go. Paulina asks who or what Devil Marlena is. The Devil yells at her to get out of here so Paulina runs away. Marlena then gets a call from Belle, who says she needs to talk to her. Belle informs her that she petitioned the court to restore Julie’s right to make decisions for Doug. Marlena argues that nobody notified her, so she will contact the court as Doug’s doctor. Belle reveals that the judge ruled in Julie’s favor, so Marlena is no longer in charge of Doug’s care. Marlena argues that Julie being alone with Doug in Bayview could be very dangerous for her. Belle then reveals that Julie and Doug are at home which shocks Marlena.

Julie asks Kayla if there’s a chance that Doug’s condition is permanent. Kayla says it’s hard to get a clear picture of his status, so they will have to wait until the medication wears off which may take 24 hours. Kayla adds that at least Doug is home for the holidays. Julie encourages Doug that it’s going to be alright as it’s Thanksgiving and they have so much to be grateful for.

Steve goes to the DiMera Crypt and tries to enter but it’s locked.

Kayla calls Steve and leaves a message, informing him that Doug is home and it’s a long story but she’s going to stay there for Thanksgiving so she will text Roman and Kate that they won’t make it to the Pub. Kayla hopes Steve will be able to join her there as soon as he can. Kayla knows he’s out looking for answers about Marlena, so she hopes he finds them.

Steve grabs a nearby shovel and begins beating on the door. Susan worries that it’s the Devil returning.

Johnny tells Chanel that he’s glad Paulina took responsibility. Chanel admits she wasn’t expecting that as she’s never seen Paulina so guilty and heartbroken. Johnny tells her that the DiMera Jet is ready to go but asks if after making peace with her mom, she doesn’t want to stick around for Thanksgiving with her family. Chanel asks if he’s trying to get out of showing her Italy. Johnny says it’s just her mom but Chanel insists that she wants to see Italy, so they exit together.

Paulina walks through the town square and calls the police and says she doesn’t know what the hell she just saw.

Shawn and Belle sit at the table with Doug and Julie for Thanksgiving. Shawn asks Belle what Marlena said. Belle informs him that Marlena hung up on her as she wasn’t thrilled with Doug’s release. Kayla comes in and says she left a message for Steve, so hopefully he will join them. Julie speaks about Thanksgiving being a celebration of gratitude, but this year it’s not what anyone wanted or expected. Julie says it’s still a time to pause and consider how much they have to be thankful for. Julie talks about being blessed and grateful to have Shawn, Belle, and Kayla. Julie declares that most of all, she is thankful for Doug. Julie knows the last few months have been very dark, but now that Doug is home, the darkness is fading away. Julie says Doug’s spirit lifts them all in to the light. Julie calls Doug the center of her universe and says she’ll move heaven and earth to get him well. Everyone toasts to a Happy Thanksgiving. Devil Marlena then walks in and says Happy Thanksgiving, shocking Julie.

Steve breaks in to the DiMera Crypt and finds Susan holding the dagger with blood all over her.

Julie questions what Marlena is doing here. Marlena says she came to wish them all a Happy Thanksgiving and to take Doug back to Bayview. Julie refuses. Marlena thinks it’s for the best. Julie doesn’t care what she thinks and complains that Marlena put Doug in a padded room and gave him such powerful drugs that he doesn’t even know who she is anymore. Marlena says it was for his own good. Julie tells Marlena that she’s not Doug’s doctor anymore which Belle backs up. Julie adds that Marlena is no longer welcome in this house. Marlena argues that Doug is still a danger to himself and others which Kayla knows. Kayla is not sure she agrees. Marlena argues that it’s clear that Julie’s emotions took over her judgment. Julie threatens to show Marlena what a danger to others realyl looks like. Marlena warns that would be a mistake. Doug then suddenly stands up and points at Marlena. Marlena argues that Doug is confused and lost but she can help him. Julie, Shawn, and Belle ask what Doug is trying to say. Doug then declares that Marlena is the Devil!

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Steve comes home to Kayla baking a pie. Kayla complains that she left it in too long but she’s glad Steve is home as she kisses him. Kayla hopes to hear that Steve found John, but Steve reveals he did not and doesn’t think he was meant to as he’s pretty sure someone sent him on a wild goose chase. Kayla wonders who would do that as Devil Marlena then shows up at the door, declaring that Thanksgiving is her favorite holiday of all.

Shawn and Belle enter the Horton house where Julie is looking through a photo album, talking about how much Doug enjoyed Thanksgiving and now it’s Thanksgiving and Doug is all alone. Belle says she’s so sorry. Julie says she’s hardly to blame since she took her case against her own mother, so she put her in a horrible position. Belle just wants to settle this. Julie asks if there’s any news then guesses by her look that there is and that it’s not good.

Allie runs in to Tripp and Henry in the town square. Allie thought she was seeing them back at the apartment. Tripp responds that Henry couldn’t wait to show her the Happy Thanksgiving Mommy drawing that he made for her.

Chanel has a nightmare about Paulina being so mad at her that she said she’s no longer her daughter and then Paulina having a heart attack. Chanel wakes up in a panic in bed with Johnny. Johnny asks about her nightmare. Chanel responds that the dream was so real and in the dream, she killed Paulina.

Paulina sits alone at home with her locket and says she sure made a hot mess of it this time. Olivia walks in and says she got that right.

Belle informs Julie that it’s not bad news but just frustrating. Belle explains that she put in a motion to rescind Marlena’s medical power of attorney and if the judge rules in their favor, then Julie will be able to make all the decisions for Doug’s care and she’ll be able to see him without Marlena having anything to say about it. Julie asks when that will happen. Belle reveals that she didn’t hear back from the judge yesterday and today begins a long holiday weekend. Julie laments that she will not get to see Doug anytime soon.

Kayla mentions that unfortunately their kids, Joey and Stephanie, can’t come home for Thanksgiving. Devil Marlena says that’s a shame since Thanksgiving really is all about family. Kayla explains that they will be with family as they are going to be with Roman and Kate to the Brady Pub for Thanksgiving Dinner and then they will video chat with the kids after. Marlena guesses that’s something and says maybe she will stop by after all of her holiday calls. Steve asks if that’s why she’s here. Devil Marlena claims that she came to apologize for not being herself lately.

Allie jokes that Henry did not get his art ability from her and starts to say he must have gotten it from his dad but Allie says to forget that as it’s Thanksgiving and she doesn’t want to talk about ‘him’. Tripp encourages her to say whatever she wants. Allie doesn’t want to talk about Charlie. Tripp points out that she did and it’s a good thing. Tripp tells her not to pretend the past didn’t happen but to hold onto the fact that Charlie is dead and buried, so he can never hurt her again. Allie brings up Halloween and says they can’t be sure of that. Tripp reveals that actually they can because Rafe was worried, so he ordered Charlie’s grave to be exhumed and he’s still there, undisturbed. Allie wonders who or what they saw that night then.

Devil Marlena knows Steve and Kayla have been leaving lots of messages and she hasn’t gotten back to them. Kayla says they were worried about her. Marlena says they must have felt like she was ghosting them. Steve knows she is busy. Marlena brings up Abe’s wedding and then realizes Kayla and Steve haven’t heard so Steve asks what happened. Devil Marlena explains that Chanel stood up in front of everybody and announced that Paulina is Lani’s mother and that Abe is not Lani’s father. Kayla and Steve are shocked as Marlena talks about how it was just devastating for Abe and Lani. Kayla asks if Tamara was in on the deception which Marlena confirms and adds that she’s sure it made Abe feel foolish and like a chump. Steve remarks that it’s not hard to figure out how Abe is feeling. Marlena says it’s one thing to hear about it compared to being there, but she hasn’t seen Abe that upset since he lost Lexie. Steve decides to give Abe a call. Marlena remarks that he’s such a good friend and says she should get going. Kayla adds that she was going to call Marlena about Doug as she thought maybe Marlena could let Doug and Julie see each other for Thanksgiving. Devil Marlena doesn’t think it’s a good idea but Kayla strongly disagrees and asks what the harm is in a supervised visit. Kayla thought she would change her mind because they are like family. Devil Marlena claims that she couldn’t bare it if Doug attacked Julie again on her watch so she can’t help her. Steve responds that maybe she can help him find John then.

Chanel tells Johnny about how Paulina had a heart attack and died in her nightmare. Johnny talks about how they both have larger than life moms but if they do one thing to cross them, they feel like they killed them and it all pops up in their dreams. Chanel talks about how she did a very crappy thing. Johnny thinks Chanel felt her back was against the wall with all of Paulina’s lies, so she snapped. Chanel says it’s weird how much he gets it. Johnny comments that Sami left town and couldn’t be bothered to tell anyone where she is, so he somehow thinks it’s his fault. Chanel comments that it’d be a lot easier if they didn’t love them. Johnny believes they have to lead their own lives and not feel guilty about it. Chanel wishes it was just them and they can stay here forever so she wouldn’t have to face Paulina, Abe, and Lani. Johnny doesn’t know about forever but says they could have a hell of a nice day. Johnny reminds her that he has a full staff on call so he could have Harold bring them breakfast, lunch, and dinner in bed if she wants. Chanel says that sounds like heaven. Johnny then tells her that he was in Heaven last night and he’d love to go back as they kiss.

Olivia asks if Paulina has heard from Chanel, Abe, or Lani. Paulina says no. Olivia wants to sort out her mess. Paulina blames Chanel. Olivia warns her to watch her tone. Paulina complains about how Olivia felt about her coming to Salem and says this is her big ‘I told you so’ moment. Olivia assures that she’s not enjoying this. Paulina cries that she just wanted to see Lani again and felt she had to be there for her daughter having a baby. Olivia asks how that worked out for her. Paulina doesn’t want to hear it. Olivia declares that’s too bad because she’s the only one left who can talk sense in to her and this time, she’s going to listen. Paulina decides it’s best to just sit down and get it over with. Olivia questions why she couldn’t just leave well enough alone. Paulina complains about watching her daughter grow up alone. Olivia reminds her that they all agreed. Paulina argues that she didn’t agree, but she caved because she was pregnant and scared while they helped her clean up her big mess and now she’s making another mess. Paulina says she just followed her heart. Olivia tells her that it’s time to start using her head instead.

Tripp and Allie go over their Thanksgiving plans as Ava and Rafe want them at their place for dinner, while Roman and Lucas want them at the Brady Pub where Steve and Kayla will also be but they also want to do something at their place. Tripp says they have all of their options and wonders how to make a decision. Allie has an idea and says she’ll be right back.

Devil Marlena tells Steve that all John told her is that he was going on a mission for Black Patch. Steve says that’s not true as John has not checked in with him and is not following any of their usual protocols. Marlena suggests he’s on a mission for the ISA and just used Black Patch as a coverup. Steve clarifies that he checked in with Shane, who said John is not doing any work for them and he’s gone completely off the grid. Marlena remarks that it wouldn’t be the first time. Kayla questions it not bothering her for John to be gone on Thanksgiving and not letting her know that he’s okay. Steve asks if she’s sure she has no idea where he could be.

Shawn hugs Julie and encourages her about Doug. Julie complains that they’ve been through everything together but they are not together now. Julie worries that Doug hasn’t been told that she’s not allowed to see him and he might think she doesn’t care. Shawn reassures her as Belle finishes her call and announces that they won’t have to worry because somehow they got a compassionate judge, who said the case was heartbreaking and he didn’t want to wait until Monday. Belle reveals that Julie officially has medical power of attorney, so she can see Doug today. Julie is relieved and hugs Belle as she thanks her.

Chanel tells Johnny that he was right that staying in bed all day, making love, and ordering room service was a wonderful idea. Johnny says he has a better idea and suggests they leave Salem together.

Paulina complains to Olivia about Tamara following her heart and being a singer, while she had to be the logical one. Olivia argues that this is not about her rivalry with Tamara. Paulina says that’s what it’s always been about as she grew up in her shadow and then when she finally gets something, Olivia decided Tamara would be the better mother. Olivia insists it was on protecting her and the baby. Paulina argues that she ended up losing both of her babies. Olivia says she may think Tamara was her favorite, but Paulina always had her heart. Olivia hugs her and assures that she loves her.

Julie puts together a bag for Doug and talks about feeling nervous like it’s a big date. Belle encourages that it is. Julie says Doug will always be her prince charming. Julie then realize that she still has to cook the turkey. Shawn questions her making Thanksgiving dinner. Julie says it’s Doug’s favorite so not making it would seem like she had given up hope. They decide that Shawn will take Julie to see Doug while Belle will take care of dinner. Julie calls them angels as she then exits with Shawn.

Devil Marlena claims to have no idea where John is and that it does bother and terrify her but these things happen with John. Steve questions her not wanting to try to track him down. She claims it would be disrespectful and show a lack of trust. Kayla doesn’t get it. Marlena says John is doing his job and when it’s done, he will come back to her. Steve questions her not being interested in finding him. She claims that if she could do anything, she would, but in times like this they just have to trust in a higher power. She wishes them a happy Thanksgiving as she then exits the house. Kayla asks Steve bought any of that. Steve says not a word. Kayla decides she’s going to see Julie to tell her that she could make no head way with Marlena. Steve says Marlena just isn’t making any sense these days and questions her wanting a higher power to find John or thinking Doug should be alone on Thanksgiving. Kayla says she just couldn’t get Marlena to see how Julie feels. Kayla tells Steve that she will see him at the Pub. Steve decides he will head to the Pub early to see if Roman has been talking to Marlena. Kayla says keeping Doug isolated is cruel and unusual punishment. Kayla then exits.

Allie returns to Tripp with bags from the bakery and says they will bring dessert to everybody so they have an excuse to stop by each place. Tripp asks about Johnny. Allie is sure he’s at the DiMera Mansion with Chanel, so they can eat cake. Allie and Tripp then walk off with Henry.

Chanel tells Johnny that she can’t just leave Salem and brings up the bakery. Johnny says that Allie can handle it while they are gone. Chanel says he can’t speak for her and she can’t just expect Allie to do the work for her while she goes to Italy with him. Johnny tells her to just leave Allie to him. Johnny talks about all they can do in Italy and he can show her where he grew up. Chanel knows he never gives up. Johnny asks what she says to just running away.

Olivia informs Paulina that Lani invited her over for Thanksgiving and that Eli is coming to pick her up, so she’ll wait outside. Paulina questions being ostracized while Olivia gets a spot at the table. Paulina argues that Olivia lied too, came up with it, and kept it going all these years. Paulina remarks that maybe Tamara can fly in too. Olivia says she was just as surprised that Lani invited her, but she did. Olivia suggests Paulina reach out to Chanel as she’s sure she is hurt too and she’s still her baby. Paulina says that last night she was thinking about it over and over. Paulina questions how Chanel could possibly have known. Olivia tells her that it was Marlena. Paulina argues that Marlena is a doctor and would have to break confidence and she’s also Tamara’s friend. Olivia responds that something in Marlena’s spirit didn’t sit right with her. Paulina wants something more concrete. Olivia brings up the smug look on Marlena’s face when Chanel stood up, like she knew already that Paulina was Lani’s mother. Paulina thinks back to revealing the truth to Marlena. Paulina then admits to Olivia that she told Marlena. Olivia questions why she would do that. Paulina talks about Marlena being bound by doctor-patient confidentiality. Olivia thinks she broke that and put all her business on the street. Olivia insists that Marlena is no damn good as she then exits.

Chanel asks about Johnny’s movie if they take off to Italy. Johnny says that he’ll work on the script in Italy and they’ll only be gone for a couple of weeks. Chanel questions EJ just handing over the DiMera Jet to him. Johnny jokes that he might as well capitalize on EJ not being a jerk right now. Johnny says that Allie is at the Pub, so he will go let her know that she has to handle the Bakery while Chanel just has to go home and pack her bags. Chanel brings up that packing her bags is how her nightmare began. Johnny says they can get her stuff in Milan then. Chanel reminds him that she still has to get her passport. Johnny offers to go with her, but Chanel says she will just try and sneak in and out without seeing Paulina. Chanel can’t believe they are doing this and that he’s doing this for her. Chanel thanks him as they kiss.

Tripp and Allie go to the Brady Pub. Allie reminds him that they have 3 or 4 dinners to get to. Allie jokes that the Brady family measures a man’s worth based off how much he eats at Thanksgiving. They then head in to the Pub.

Kayla goes to the Horton House looking for Julie but Belle informs her that Shawn just took her to Bayview to see Doug. Kayla informs Belle that she just got off the phone with Marlena, who was adamant that Doug have no visitors so they will turn her away. Belle reveals that it’s not Marlena’s call anymore as she got a court order, giving Julie her medical power of attorney. Kayla wonders how Marlena will react to that. Belle admits that she’s not looking forward to finding out, but she had to something because Julie was miserable. Belle adds that now it’s really hitting her that she got a court order overturning one of her mom’s medical decisions like she was questioning her confidence. Belle wonders if Marlena was right and she’s wrong. Kayla says she’s had questions about the decision herself. Belle guesses that something is wrong since Marlena is the most compassionate person she knows. Kayla comments that Marlena is not the doctor or person that she has loved and admired for so long. Belle worries about what is happening to her.

Devil Marlena returns to the Crypt. The Devil talks about how all of John’s friends are looking for him which means he has to find a way to make sure John and Susan disappear, permanently.

Chanel goes to Paulina’s. Paulina comes out and says “Look what the cat dragged in”, just like in the beginning of Chanel’s nightmare.

Johnny runs in to Steve outside the Pub. They wish each other a Happy Thanksgiving. Steve asks if he can talk to him for a minute. Steve says they were just talking to Marlena and asks if he’s noticed anything strange about her lately. Johnny asks strange in what way?

The Devil declares it’s time to kill two birds with one stone or maybe a dagger.

Belle tells Kayla that she’s relieved that she thinks she did the right thing but it also scares her that Kayla is worried about Marlena too. Kayla talks about how she tells herself that Marlena is too close to the situation and loves Julie and Doug so much. Belle points out that it’s not just this one decision as it just doesn’t seem like that. Belle feels Marlena is doing all these things deliberately. Kayla suggests they just focus on Thanksgiving and being grateful that Doug and Julie are back together again. Belle would love to be able to see them together again. Julie then returns and tells her to turn around then. Shawn then wheels in Doug in a wheelchair and announces that Doug is home as Julie, Kayla, and Belle are overjoyed to see him.

Interview with Reba McEntire, Candice King and John Schneider

TV Interview!

John Schneider and Rebe McEntire in "Christmas in Tune" on Lifetime

Interview with Executive Producer and star Reba McEntire, and stars John Schneider, Candice King, Justin David, and Norm Lewis of “Christmas in Tune” on Lifetime by Suzanne 11/8/21

This press panel was a lot of fun… and I like this movie, which airs 11/26 on Lifetime. It was hard to choose which person to interview, since I love the top three stars. I asked my questions of Reba and Candice, and John chimed in, so it worked out well.

MODERATOR: Hi, everyone. Thank you all for joining. Our first panel for today is Reba McEntire’s “Christmas in Tune.” Please welcome executive producer and star Reba McEntire, and stars John Schneider, Candice King, Justin David, and Norm Lewis. Thank you, guys, all so much for being here today. Our first question —

REBA MCENTIRE: Our pleasure.

MODERATOR: Our next question is from Suzanne.

QUESTION: Hi. It’s great to see you all. Reba, I was wondering if you could tell us who wrote the music, the original songs, and will there be an album from this movie?

REBA MCENTIRE: Ooh, we haven’t talked about an album for the music from this album — from the movie. I’m trying to remember the lady’s name who wrote “I Needed Christmas Too”. It’ll come to me about the time we all hang up, but my band and Doug Sisemore did all the arrangements and put the music together. We went in to Dark Horse Studios where we got to shoot part of the movie and record the songs there. So I’ll get back with you on that young lady’s name, and the other songs had been recorded before, but I think the selection of the songs were to the point and just wonderful. Oh, her name was Trannie Anderson who wrote that song “I Needed Christmas Too.” Thank you, Mark.

QUESTION: Thank you. And, Candice, you used to sing backup, I read, on the “Hannah Montana” show. Did you have any spare time where you got to sing with these folks for fun, or —

Executive Producer and star Reba McEntire, and stars John Schneider, Candice King, Justin David, and Norm Lewis of "Christmas in Tune" on LifetimeCANDICE KING: Oh, no. Oh, no. Nope. I save these dusty pipes just for my little baby.


CANDICE KING: They’re a little rusty —

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Dusty pipes. Dusty, rusty pipes.

CANDICE KING: Yeah. No, in another life, yes, I was a singer and a backup singer for Miley Cyrus on the “Hannah Montana” tour. So it’s a great ice breaker, conversation starter but, no, luckily, I just got to listen to the legends.

QUESTION: Oh, maybe a sequel movie where Candice gets to sing…?

CANDICE KING: We’ll see.

QUESTION: Thank you, guys.

MODERATOR: Jay Bobbin, would you like to give your question?

QUESTION: Why, sure. Hello, everyone. Good to see you.

NORM LEWIS: Thank you.

QUESTION: Reba, Reba and John, both of you have, I mean, Reba, it geos without saying and, John, you are certainly well known for your singing voice, can the two of you talk about singing together? And then I’ve got a follow-up for you, Reba.

Reba McEntire on Zoom with usREBA MCENTIRE: I thought it was a lot of fun. I had a blast singing with John. He’s, um —

WOMAN: John Schneider and Reba McEntire.

REBA MCENTIRE: Thank you. I had a great time working with John singing. He was fun. He knew what he was going to sing and prepared and —

WOMAN: She’s going to be in a show called Christmas, “Christmas in Tune.”

QUESTION: This is not me, by the way. This is Jay. I’m not doing the narration.

MODERATOR: Hi, everybody. If anyone that’s not speaking can please mute themselves that’d be very helpful.

REBA MCENTIRE: Okay. Now we ready?

QUESTION: Yes, Reba. You were saying? I’m sorry.

REBA MCENTIRE: Okay. Yeah. John and I had a wonderful time on the movie getting to sing together, act together, and he’s a lot of fun to sing with, and the songs we got to sing were marvelous, some of my favorite songs to get to sing.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: And what was so great about this is we got to sing in the studio, the real studio. Before we filmed, we got to hear all the music and work on the music, and then we got to come to the set and sing that music again. So we really kind of had the opportunity to do everything that in the music world we’d been doing for decades, dare I say it, and it was so wonderful to sing with Reba. I’ve never sung with Reba before, at least she didn’t know. I mean I was singing with her on the radio, but it was so wonderful to be singing with her on the same mic and on the same stage, wonderful to share a stage with you —

REBA MCENTIRE: Thanks, John.

QUESTION: Thank you, John. Reba, my follow-up for you. Christmas has become kind of a tradition for you whether you’re doing a movie, or you’re hosting “CMA Country Christmas” or whatever. Could you talk briefly about your relationship with Christmas TV, your thoughts about it?

REBA MCENTIRE: I love it. I think it’s a warm, wonderful way to express your feelings. Music goes a long way with getting everybody in the holiday mood, and it’s also given us a chance to reflect on the year that we’ve had, all the wonderful things that have happened and our many blessings, and we remember the reason for the season. So, I love to be a part of television during the Christmas holidays.

QUESTION: Thank you both very much.



MODERATOR: Thanks, Jay. Our next question is going to be from (Steven McCoy @ 00:08:06).

QUESTION: Hi, how are you, everyone?

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Hello, Steven.

QUESTION: Hi, Mr. John and Ms. Reba. I wanted to ask you, I mean, this is such a beautiful story, by the way. You have a parent who was once (in a group @ 00:08:20) in the past, and now get a chance to reunite. Now for you individually, have you guys ever gone through anything like that where you had to reunite with someone from your past and try to get into a warm spirit such as this one in the film?


JOHN SCHNEIDER: I tried it once. It didn’t work out so well for me. It worked out much better in the movie.


REBA MCENTIRE: In those situations it is pretty much like acting, and you have to move along with things to make it great for the rest of the family; yes.

QUESTION: What is a good moment that happened between you guys on set? Like what is the most funnest moment that you can give us?

REBA MCENTIRE: (Inaudible @ 00:09:09).

JOHN SCHNEIDER: You know, my fun, my most memorable moment was when we were doing that scene where we were being interviewed, and we started to look at each other. Our timing became exactly the same, and I don’t think we realize it, but the crew breaking up because we were so funny together. So that was my favorite part, kind of like doing what we’re doing right now, but the Zoom thing makes it a little awkward. We’re much funnier when we’re not on a Zoom call.


QUESTION: Thank you, guys, so much.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: You’re welcome.


JOHN SCHNEIDER: And have a wonderful, wonderful Christmas —

QUESTION: Happy Holidays.


MODERATOR: Thank you. We’re going to try Jamie Ruby again.

QUESTION: Hello, can you hear me this time?




QUESTION: Oh, sorry about that before. Hi, guys. So you talk about what’s so much fun, can you talk about what you found the most challenging doing this film?

REBA MCENTIRE: I think the most challenging thing that all of us can speak for was trying to film a Christmas movie in the heat and humidity of Nashville, Tennessee. That was the hardest part, but we endured. We got through it, and everybody had a wonderful time.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Yeah. The hours were not bad at all. It was hot, obviously, but you always do a Christmas movie in July, as you always do a beach movie in November and December. I didn’t have any difficulty with anything except maybe not eating all the snacks, because they were great.

QUESTION: All right. Thank you so much.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: You’re welcome. You have a great day.

QUESTION: You too.

MODERATOR: Thank you. We actually have a question here for Norm. Norm, your character is Duke who plays the musical director, and he also sort of plays the mediator between Georgia and Joe. Can you talk a little bit about your role?

NORM LEWIS: Yeah. First of all, being in this movie was exciting for me with these two OGs right here. And then working with — You know, we’ve seen Candice grow up on television, and now she’s got her own family now, you know, with a blended family. And then this amazing young man Justin, working with this great crew, it was so much fun. But to answer your question, yeah, I was happy to be a yenta. I was happy to be that person knowing that these two actually are meant to be together. I’ve actually had situations like that before, so I pulled from those experiences to try to bring that into the movie.

MODERATOR: Great. Thank you so much, Norm. Our next question is from Jamie Steinberg.

QUESTION: Hi, everyone. Thanks so much for your time this afternoon. Candice, it’s so incredible to see you have these iconic actors as your parents. Talk about working with Reba and John.

CANDICE KING: Yeah. I mean, that was one of the most exciting things when I was flying into Nashville to do this was just knowing immediately being in a room with so many talented people that I’ve admired for years. It couldn’t have been a warmer welcome. I think that, you know, the tone on set usually starts from the top, and the tone on set was happy, jolly, you know, beautiful — all the Christmas feelings you could ever imagine, and I think that is attributed to, you know, Reba and John, the joy that you each brought to work every day. So, and, honestly, I just had to try not to geek out the whole time every time they were singing live. I mean, they had to rehearse in front of us, and it was so beautiful. John was always just strumming his guitar whenever he had a guitar in the scene, and I think that it’s just imperative on sets that someone’s always in a room playing a guitar.


CANDICE KING: I think that needs to be a new like rule —


CANDICE KING: –because it is so soothing, and just it was a blast of an experience.

QUESTION: Justin, you and Candice have such great onscreen chemistry as well. Did you feel that instantly as well, or did you guys spend some time together to flesh out this on-screen relationship?

JUSTIN DAVID: I think right off the bat when we met each other we had a good, you know, relationship right there and just like also just getting to know each other on like a friendship level just because we’re going to be working so closely together, you know. And it was very nice. Like it flowed in the story and like, you know, work alongside everyone, because it is essentially like a family that I’m working with, you know. Like we got Reba being Belle’s mom and John being Belle’s dad. Like it was really easy. It was awesome, honestly. Yeah.

QUESTION: Thank you all so much for your time.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Thank you, Jamie.


NORM LEWIS: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you. Our next question is from Rick Bentley.

QUESTION: John and Reba, both of you have done projects where you’ve had to sing in them, and then other projects where there was no singing involved. When you have a role where you have to sing, does that feel like I’m going to do something with an old friend, and it makes it more comfortable? Or does it add another layer of, “Oh, my gosh. I now have to not only know my lines and do the acting, but I also have to sing.”

REBA MCENTIRE: Go ahead, John.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Well, I tell you, it was — thank you — it was, it truly was getting to work with an old friend. Reba and I met each other quite some time ago, and for me — because I’m a theater brat, I started doing theater like Norm. I started doing theater when I was very young, eight years old — so when the opportunity came about for me to do this, this is actually the biggest musical production that I’ve ever done on camera. So I very much looked forward to it. It didn’t scare me. It kind of wrapped itself around me like a warm, Christmas blanket, to be honest with you, and to be able to do it with Reba was icing on the cake, absolutely.

REBA MCENTIRE: Aww. I echo those sentiments exactly. I had a wonderful time singing with John, adding music to the story was wonderful for me, and I totally enjoyed it.

QUESTION: Thank you.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: You’re welcome.

MODERATOR: Thank you. Our next question is from Noah Wilson.

QUESTION: Hello, everyone. It is so great to be here with you guys. By the way, I must just first off say, I don’t think anyone has said this yet, you guys look phenomenal. You loo amazing. Festive. All holiday-ish. I love it. And my first question is to you, Reba. I want to ask you playing Georgia Winter in Reba McEntire’s “Christmas in Tune,” could you see similarities between yourself in Georgia as she’s also a country artist in this film?

REBA MCENTIRE: Definitely. And I think that’s what made it so much more easy for me to perform and play that part, because a lot of the decisions that Georgia made are the decisions that Reba would make.


REBA MCENTIRE: And the things that she would say Reba would say, so I definitely think there was a similarity there.

QUESTION: Now, John, we see Georgia and Joe have had some bad blood between them from years past as a singing duo, but eventually we see them rekindle their relationship in the movie through the power of music. What was one of your favorite songs to perform with Reba in this holiday movie?

Zoom panel with the actorsJOHN SCHNEIDER: Oh, it must have been “The Mistletoe.” Hands-down. What a beautiful song.


JOHN SCHNEIDER: Got a wonderful meter to it. I can’t remember who did the orchestration and the recording of the music, but it is fantastic. And we talked earlier about it. It’s very difficult to write and perform a new, great, Christmas song, because there’s a lot of wonderful Christmas songs out there. I think that this particular song is going to withstand the test of time. I think it’s going to be a new favorite Christmas song on radio for years to come,

QUESTION: And my last question is to you, Candice. We will see your character Belle work with the U. S. Army to put on their holiday fundraiser for the Snowball Event. How important is it to think of our troops during the holiday season as they fight to serve our country —

JOHN SCHNEIDER: (Right @ 00:17:07).

QUESTION: — as they fight to serve our country every single day out of the year?

CANDICE KING: I think it’s incredibly important. I mean, I think collectively, as a world, we experience what it’s like to be separated from family and not be able to immediately see people we want to see when we were all, you know, quarantined last year. And so those that are not only sacrificing their lives, but their time away from loved ones for very long periods of time, I think it’s important to just keep them in our minds and our hearts, especially — you know, all year round — but also during the holidays.

QUESTION: Absolutely. Thank you for your time.

MODERATOR: Thank you.

CANDICE KING: Thank you.

MODERATOR: Thank you, guys. That’s all the time we have today for the “Christmas in Tune” panel. We want to say a big thank you to the entire cast for joining us today, and everybody please tune into the movie on November 26th.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Thank you, everybody.


NORM LEWIS: Merry Christmas.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Bye-bye. Merry Christmas.

REBA MCENTIRE: Merry Christmas.

CANDICE KING: Thank you.

JOHN SCHNEIDER: Happy Thanksgiving. Don’t forget Thanksgiving.

NORM LEWIS: Oh, yeah. That.

QUESTION: And, Norm Lewis, good luck on Broadway and everything. I’ve seen you on Broadway on —

NORM LEWIS: Thank you. Thank you so much.

Update written by Joseph

Jake helps Gabi zip up her dress and asks where they are going. Gabi thought they could have a nice dinner. Jake reminds her that they are both unemployed. Gabi says they just had a big win so they need to celebrate that Victor fired Philip. Jake thought they were going to talk business. Gabi assures they will but feels they’ve earned the right to gloat. Gabi mocks Philip getting fired. Gabi has Jake help her put on a necklace which was Sami’s. Jake jokes that he’d rather be helping her out of her clothes than in to them, so Gabi drops Jake’s towel and they kiss.

Rafe comes home to Ava cooking. Rafe says she didn’t have to cook, but Ava says she wanted to. Ava talks about how they talked about a fresh start and taking things slow. Ava thought if they could slowly get back to a routine, they could slowly get back to being them again. Ava adds that she thought cooking might help the kitchen not look like a crime scene anymore. Rafe is sorry she had to go through that and that he wasn’t there. Ava says it’s okay as he was working and doing his job. Rafe thinks back to having sex with Nicole that night. Ava adds that Rafe was serving and protecting the citizens of Salem.

Nicole goes to the DiMera Mansion which EJ calls a nice surprise. Nicole asks for a martini so EJ asks what is bothering her. Nicole doesn’t know why she let this upset her as she knew it was coming as she shows EJ that she got divorce papers from Eric. EJ reveals that he got his divorce papers from Sami on the same day, but he can’t serve them because Sami is still nowhere to be found.

Marlena’s call is from an unknown number but she answers it. It turns out to be her daughter Sami, who says thank God she picked up and that she has to help her.

Devil Kristen talks about Kristen and John being together in the past. John tells her to call off this seduction while she still has a shred of dignity. Devil Kristen responds that she can’t do that because this party is just getting started.

Ava and Rafe joke around as she cooks and they get close until Gabi and Jake walk in. Gabi gets upset and asks Rafe why he hasn’t kicked this bitch to the curb.

Nicole questions EJ still not knowing where Sami is. EJ asks why everyone acts like he’s lying. Nicole points out that he kind of lies all the time which EJ laughs at. Nicole says it just seems like if EJ could find Kristen, he should be able to find Sami Brady. EJ responds that the difference is that he wanted to find Kristen, while he doesn’t care if he ever hears from Sami again. Nicole tells him that he’s going to have to find her in order to serve those papers, unless he doesn’t want to get a divorce. EJ assures he does not want to be trapped in that marriage any longer as it’s like being buried alive…

Sami is excited to hear Marlena’s voice. Marlena is thankful that she called. Marlena says she has to talk to her but they don’t have much time. Marlena asks if Sami is in Salem. Sami responds that she’s in a room but she has no idea where it is as she was drugged and kidnapped back in August. Sami explains that she was attacked and chloroformed when she went to Rafe’s house to talk to Gabi about staying at the DiMera Mansion. Marlena says that doesn’t make sense since Sami has been texting her this whole time but Sami reveals it wasn’t her but whoever drugged her and she has no idea who it is.

John tells Devil Kristen that there’s nothing she can do because he loves Marlena. Devil Kristen says they don’t have to make it about love, but about sex which she’s really good at it. She insists on being John’s type. Devil Kristen that John resisting is stimulating her. She suggests trying something less angelic. John tells her to just go away.

Gabi questions what Ava is doing and argues that she can’t stay here after there was a mob hit in Rafe’s kitchen. Ava calls that self defense. Gabi asks Rafe how he thinks she feels living in the same house with the woman who tried to steal her company. Ava says she admitted that she was wrong. Gabi argues that’s only because she got caught. Gabi complains about Rafe sleeping with a murderer. Ava asks who Gabi is to talk since she has a prison record. Gabi claims she’s been rehabilitated. Ava questions the necklace Gabi is wearing and accuses her of stealing it. Gabi says that she found it. Ava asks if she didn’t try to find who it belonged to. Gabi says that she thought that might have been embarrassing for Rafe. Ava gets that Gabi is still trying to make her believe that Rafe slept with Nicole. Ava declares that is never ever going to happen because she’ll never believe a single word from Gabi. Gabi asks if Rafe is going to let Ava talk to her like this. Rafe points out that Gabi hasn’t been warm and welcoming. Rafe suggests they have a big family dinner. Gabi declines and says she and Jake are going to have dinner elsewhere. Gabi warns Rafe to hide the knives because she wouldn’t want him to be Ava’s next victim as she exits with Jake.

EJ tells Nicole that he’s flattered that she sought him out in her hour of need instead of Rafe. Nicole jokes that it’s just because he makes a better martini. Nicole adds that there’s another reason she came to him that’s fairly intimate. Nicole says if she shows her divorce papers to someone else then she’s airing her dirty laundry while EJ already has a low opinion of her. EJ assures that’s not true and he always respected her. EJ agrees to represent Nicole if she lets him take her out to dinner tonight. Nicole jokes that she gets advice and dinner. EJ says they can negotiate terms later and they exit together.

Sami tells Marlena that she has no clue who did this and that there are guards who bring her food, but they won’t tell her who they work for or why this is happening to her. Sami says she finally managed to steal one of their phones but they are going to figure it out so Marlena has to come get her. Marlena responds that she’s not the only one who is in trouble right now.

John tells Devil Kristen that this isn’t going to work. Devil Kristen continues to come on to him. John wants her to let him go and asks how else he would make love to her. She asks if that’s really what he wants or if he’s just trying to escape.

Rafe tells Ava that he’s sorry about Gabi. Ava says it’s fine as Gabi is right that she tried to steal her company so she doesn’t blame her for wanting her gone, but she does blame her for starting their war when she first moved in. Ava says she tried to rise above but fail. Ava feels she shouldn’t let Gabi get in her head as she knows what she’s doing but she still makes her feel so insecure about Rafe and Nicole. Rafe argues that they are so past that. Ava feels bad that Rafe and Nicole feel they can’t be around each other. Ava calls Nicole her only friend and says Rafe has been completely upfront with her. Ava suggests they all hang out again and offers to invite Nicole over but Rafe stops her and asks to please stop talking about Nicole.

EJ and Nicole go out to eat at the Bistro and look over her divorce papers. EJ argues that it’s a problem that Nicole is not asking for anything and insists on spousal support since Eric walked out on her while she’s taking care of his niece and her kid in Salem. Nicole notes that Xander said something like that too. EJ says Xander isn’t always wrong. EJ declares that by the time he’s done, Nicole will look like the lonely victim of an uncaring husband. Nicole argues that she’s the one who blew up the marriage. EJ says that’s what Eric wants her to think, but from now on, she will be dealing with him. Gabi and Jake arrive. Jake sees that EJ is there and suggests going somewhere else but Gabi says she’s not afraid of him. Gabi confronts EJ and Nicole to tell EJ not to get too comfortable in the mansion because she’s still having her lawyers look in to how EJ stole it from her. EJ brings up hearing Philip fired them after their attempt to overthrow him. Gabi says that Philip is paying for that while Gabi Chic is coming back stronger than ever and she will get her house back. EJ then sees the necklace Gabi is wearing and remembers giving it to Sami, so he asks where the hell she got that necklace.

Sami asks what Marlena is talking about. Marlena reveals that she is locked up too and chained to a wall in the DiMera Crypt. Sami asks if EJ did this because of her. Marlena says it wasn’t EJ so Sami asks who did it. Marlena responds that she won’t believe her when she tells her.

Devil Kristen asks John how she knows he won’t try to escape if she frees him. John says she will have to trust him. Devil Kristen calls it a big risk but notes that it will be a lot more fun if she didn’t have to do all the work, so she snaps the chains off of John. Devil Kristen starts kissing John but he shoves her off and asks her to let him go because he needs to get Marlena. Devil Kristen insists that John wants her and not Marlena.

Rafe apologizes for snapping at Ava. Rafe says they are finally alone to have a nice dinner so they don’t need to be talking about Nicole. Ava says she was just trying to be nice. Rafe gets that but says they need to focus on themselves and not let Gabi come between them. Rafe adds that Gabi only brought up Nicole to get under Ava’s skin. Ava points out that Rafe got so mad and doesn’t normally blow up like that. Rafe reminds her that there was a homicide in his kitchen and he had to put Eli on the case because his girlfriend was the main suspect. Rafe adds that Ava and Gabi have turned his house in to a warzone so he’s sorry for being a little edgy. Ava feels she turned his life upside down. Rafe jokes about having to talk about feelings and says he’d like to have a boring night. Ava goes back to cooking and talks about buying a case of tomatoes, asking if that’s boring enough for him as she laughs.

EJ asks Gabi again where she got that necklace. Jake warns EJ about how he talks to Gabi. Gabi asks EJ why it matters to him. Gabi asks if it’s Nicole’s and guesses she was right that Nicole was sleeping Rafe. Gabi adds that she found it outside and told Ava that it belonged to a woman Rafe didn’t want her to know about. Nicole says it’s not her necklace. Gabi asks why EJ is so bothered by it then. EJ then reveals that it’s Sami’s necklace and he bought it for her in Italy. Gabi explains that she found it a few months ago about the time that Sami left town.

Marlena informs Sami that she’s been possessed by the Devil again which shocks her. Sami thought she’d never have to worry about that again. Sami asks why Marlena is telling her if she’s the Devil. Marlena explains that she’s gotten a temporary reprieve as the Devil took over Susan Banks to get to John. Sami asks if Marlena is okay. Marlena responds that she’s so scared as she’s afraid they might lose John.

Devil Kristen tells John how they were so in love and she knows he remembers, causing a flashback to when they were together. John says he remembers so she suggests they relive the past. Devil Kristen tells John to make love to her as they then kiss. John ends up biting her. She calls him a son of a bitch. John asks if she really thought he’d give up on Marlena. John tries to run but Devil Kristen throws him back in to the wall, knocking him out. Devil Kristen then declares that he will pay for that.

Rafe and Ava eat dinner together. Ava tells Rafe that when she thought she was going to prison and he didn’t believe her about Carmine, it dawned on her that she could lose him and it scared her. Ava says that living with Rafe has been the happiest she’s ever been. Ava jokes that she’s had a miserable life so the bar was low but assures that she really loves their life together. Ava loves talking to Rafe about everything. They joke with each other about taste in movies. Ava says what she loves most of all is Rafe. Ava tells Rafe that she loves him. Rafe doesn’t know what to say. Ava asks if he’s overwhelmed or if he doesn’t feel the same way.

EJ tells Gabi that he wants the necklace back as it’s his property since he paid for it. Gabi responds that the mansion was her property but he took it so she’s taking this and walks off. Nicole tells EJ that she almost had a heart attack thinking Gabi knew about her and Rafe. Nicole asks if EJ is okay. EJ recalls the last time he saw Sami, he kicked her out and she said she was going to see Gabi about staying in the mansion but when she never returned, he figured she changed her mind and never went to see Gabi but if Gabi found the necklace, then Sami must have been there. Nicole doesn’t think Gabi would lie about not talking to Sami. EJ wonders what happened and how the necklace ended up on the ground.

Sami wants Marlena to loop the police in to this call, so they can come help and rescue her then trace the call to come get her. Marlena says she doesn’t seem to be able to make outgoing calls. Sami encourages her to keep trying. Devil Kristen then takes the phone from Marlena and greets Sami, saying it’s been a long time. Sami asks who this is and what they have done with her mother. Devil Kristen responds that Marlena can’t help Sami with her problems as she’s in enough trouble of her own. Devil Kristen then hangs up the phone, leaving Sami worried. Devil Kristen tells Marlena that she’s been a naughty girl. Marlena says she had been careless. Devil Kristen calls Sami the most useless person on the planet and now that she’s being held captive, she can’t do her any good. Marlena asks if she knows who kidnapped her. Devil Kristen responds that her lips are sealed. Marlena asks if John is alright. Devil Kristen claims that he is basking in the afterglow of their love. Marlena says they know she’s lying and that John never touched her other than shoving her away because she can still feel the unbreakable bond that she and John share.

Ava apologizes to Rafe for putting him on the spot and says he doesn’t have to answer the question as she did not say I love you to force a reply. Ava suggests they go back to eating and talking. Rafe gets what Ava is saying and says it’s been great having her here and he’s been so happy. Rafe says they fit. Rafe adds that if he doesn’t say what she wants, it doesn’t mean that he doesn’t care about her a lot because he does. Rafe promises Ava that he’s committed to her and only her.

Jake asks if Gabi is really going to keep the necklace when it’s Sami’s. Gabi responds that Sami isn’t here and no one knows where she is so she can’t give it to her. Gabi adds that Sami owes her for giving Kristen’s letter back to her. Jake points out that EJ ended up with the letter anyways. Gabi notes that wasn’t her fault but it was really funny to see it wipe the smirk off EJ’s face for once. Jake comments that EJ seems to have rebounded fine. Jake asks about EJ and Nicole being back together. Gabi can’t believe EJ being over Sami as he always seemed obsessed with her. Gabi says that EJ claims to despise Sami but she still thinks Sami is his Achilles heel. Gabi thinks Sami could be the key to paying EJ back.

Nicole suggests EJ that maybe Sami dropped the necklace on accident. EJ questions her never calling Gabi or Rafe to ask about it. Nicole wonders if Sami threw it away since their marriage was over. EJ points out that it was worth money so Sami would have pawned it. Nicole acknowledges that it does seem out of character. EJ says there is something strange about all of this. EJ then gets a call from an unknown number. Nicole guesses it’s a telemarketer. EJ decides to find out and answers. Sami says thank God he answered. EJ asks who this is.

Ava tells Rafe that she’s really glad they talked and got all their cards out. Rafe admits he liked it too. Ava toasts to putting mistakes behind them. Rafe toasts to a fresh start.

Jake thought they were talking about getting Gabi Chic back but now they’re talking about getting revenge again. Gabi says she’s multi tasking. Jake asks how Sami will help them pay EJ back. Gabi doesn’t know yet but says they’ll start by tracking Sami down, bringing her to Salem, and then figuring it out.

Sami asks if EJ heard her. EJ asks if anyone’s there. Sami asks if he can hear her but the phone battery dies. EJ guesses there was no one there. Nicole figures it was a telemarketer. EJ calls it strange as he could swear he heard Sami’s voice and then the phone went dead.

The Devil possesses Marlena again and transforms Susan back to herself. John assures that even under Satan’s spell, he remains true to Marlena. The Devil says he never had much hopes for that plan anyways so he’ll go to plan B. Susan asks what that is. The Devil declares that’s where Susan and John both die.

Young & The Restless Update

Recap written by Christine

Phyllis went to Crimson Lights for coffee. Sharon said that she was getting ready to host Thanksgiving dinner for the unhoused and lonely, so there would be no special orders today, but Phyllis could help herself to the coffee pot. Phyllis said that The Grand Phoenix wasn’t doing their dinner until late, and the managers were taking care of it, so she volunteered to help Sharon out. Just then, Nick came in with a box of supplies and told Sharon that he was sending over a couple vans full of seniors from New Hope who didn’t have any family to spend the holiday with. Nick and Phyllis’s eyes met, and they said Happy Thanksgiving. Nick turned back to Sharon and talked to her about what was in the box. He mentioned that Christian, Faith and Noah would be coming to help. She was delighted to hear that Christian was interested in helping. Nick was hoping it’d become a family tradition. Sharon said she wanted to find something fun for Christian to do so he didn’t get bored. Phyllis changed her mind about staying, and she claimed that something came up at work that she had to handle. On her way out, she ran into Billy. He asked if she had plans. She wondered if he was curious, and he admitted that he was only trying to be polite. She was sure he’d be spending the holiday alone fixing the mess at ChancComm. He said he put all that aside today, because it was all about Lily and the kids. Phyllis pointed out that he was alone. He explained that Lily’s plans to visit Mattie and Charlie fell through because of the weather, and when he left, they were on a video call. Phyllis could only imagine how the article affected negotiations for the kids with Ashland and Victoria. He said that it wasn’t stress free, but everyone was trying to be fair, and the kids were going to spend half the day with each parent. He said that the kids deserved as much family vibes and love as they could get on Thanksgiving. Everyone did. She looked forlorn. He wished her Happy Thanksgiving and he continued on.

Phyllis went to work and ran into Gloria, who was in between spa treatments. Gloria felt transformed, like a golden goddess. Gloria felt bad that the masseuses had to work on the holiday, but she’d tip them generously. JCV was doing phenomenally under her watch. Phyllis said she was giving all her employees extra pay today and sending them home early. Phyllis asked if Gloria was spending the say with Michael and Lauren. She wasn’t, because they were with Fen. Phyllis asked if Gloria was flying solo, and Gloria said of course not. No one wanted to be alone on Thanksgiving. Gloria was going to be with Kevin, Chloe and their angels. Gloria asked if Phyllis would be alone on Thanksgiving, and Phyllis said that she was working.

Phyllis put on a cheerful facade for a parade of guests who happily told her about their plans with their families. After all that, she trudged into her room and ate a bag of potato chips. She called Summer and left a message wishing her, Kyle and Harrison a Happy Thanksgiving. She poured wine and drank it while she called Daniel and told him she missed him and Lucy. She claimed that she was doing great when he asked. After the call ended, she got into bed and turned on the television. Phyllis drifted off to sleep, even though the light still streamed into the windows.

In Phyllis’s dream, Gloria burst into the room wearing a gold turban, gold sunglasses and a sparkly boa. Gloria said to call her Golden-Glo. She was there to turn Phyllis’s Thanksgiving around. Phyllis claimed she had plans, but Gloria knew that wasn’t true. She could see the chips, wine and that Phyllis had been watching true crime stories. It was hardly the way to usher in the holiday season, Golden Glo said. Phyllis said that if Glo didn’t leave, she’d be the victim of a true crime. Glo was offering Phyllis a do-over and a happy Thanksgiving. Phyllis was skeptical. Glo clapped her hands and Phyllis disappeared from the suite and teleported back to Crimson Lights.

Phyllis looked for Gloria, whom she refused to call Golden Glo. Gloria was nowhere around. Phyllis wished Gloria brought her to Hawaii or Bali instead. Sharon walked in, and she was annoyed Phyllis didn’t help earlier. Phyllis said she’d help now, but Sharon didn’t see or hear her. Phyllis realized that she was dreaming and that people wouldn’t say or do anything unless she wanted them to. Phyllis called Sharon, who suddenly noticed she was there. Sharon said Phyllis was one of the people she was most grateful for this year. Phyllis was skeptical that Sharon would say this, even in a dream. Sharon hadn’t forgotten the support Phyllis gave her during her cancer treatments. Phyllis said that was life or death and bigger than the issues they had in the past. “I was entirely responsible for all of our dust-ups,” Dream Sharon confessed.

Sharon said that yesterday, she was rude and out of line to probe Phyllis about her break up with Nick and her relationship with Jack. Phyllis wondered if she was forcing Sharon to say this in her dream or if Sharon meant it. Sharon was trying to be nice. She thought it was about time. Phyllis agreed. Sharon asked if Phyllis could spare a little time to help feed the hungry, and maybe Sharon and Phyllis could heal old wounds. Phyllis served the guests, and they broke into a round of applause for her. She basked in the adoration until Golden Glo appeared and took Phyllis to the main house at the ranch. Phyllis was dressed for a party now, and she was upset that she was in the belly of the beast. Nikki and Victor appeared. They were also dressed for festivities. Victor held a knife, while Nikki clutched a serving fork. Alarmed, Phyllis said that she didn’t come here of her own volition. Despite the menacing poses, Dream Victor and Nikki just wanted to let Phyllis carve the turkey. Nick joined everyone and said he was glad she was here. Phyllis didn’t believe that. She said she despised them, and they despised her. It was creeping her out that they were being nice, and she was leaving. Nikki and Victor urged her to stay. Nick said he and Phyllis weren’t a couple, but they were Summer’s parents, and they were friends, and he owed her a huge thank you. He finally took her advice. Nikki chimed in that it was very wise advice. Nick was referring to Phyllis’ advice to stay out of his family’s drama. Ever since he did that, some amazing things happened – Adam left town, Victoria forgave him, and Victor accepted him for who he was. Nikki was grateful to Phyllis for putting up with their family and for always being the voice of reason when she stubbornly refused to listen. Phyllis said that they should get the party started. Everyone had a great time, and Phyllis wondered why it took them so long to get to this point. Nikki said that Phyllis broke Nick’s heart, and she turned on Nikki and Victoria during the JT murder investigation. Phyllis and Nikki decided not to go down memory lane. Nikki said they were grateful to Phyllis because the guidance she gave Nick saved the Newman family. According to Nikki, they were happy and finally united, all thanks to Phyllis and her sage advice. Victor raised a toast to Phyllis, and everyone followed his lead. “Hip hip hooray!,” the Newmans exclaimed.

Phyllis found herself dropped into the Abbott celebration at Society. Jack, Traci and Ashley didn’t notice Phyllis watching from across the room. He’d had found love with someone, and his sisters were glad. Phyllis wondered who it was. Jack gushed about this woman, who was a former love he’d rekindled things with. Ashley said it could be magical to reunite with an old flame. Phyllis thought it might be her, but then she changed her mind because she knew Traci and Ashley wouldn’t be this happy about her being with Jack. Jack knew that this woman had never been his sisters’ favorite, but he thanked them for their kindness. He thought the relationship would work this time. Traci said they wanted it to. Jack noticed that his lady had arrived. Phyllis thought it was be her, and with a smile, she started to approach Jack, but then Golden Glo appeared, and she embraced Jack. Phyllis was stunned. Ashley was thrilled this incredible woman put a smile back on Jack’s face. Traci said that anyone who made their brother happy made them happy. Jack said Gloria gave him a new appreciation for life. He was grateful that Gloria took him back.

Glo saw Phyllis glaring and went over to her. “Some fairy godmother you turned out to be,” Phyllis sniped. “Oh darling, I am much too young to be any kind of mother to you,” Gloria retorted. Phyllis called Gloria Golden Ghoul. Gloria said it wasn’t her fault Jack was with her – this was Phyllis’s dream. Gloria thought that Phyllis’ subconscious set up this scenario because Phyllis was intimidated by Gloria. “Deep down you think you know I’m the one who holds the keys to Jack’s heart,” Gloria said. Phyllis thought that was crazy. Gloria pointed out that they were inside Phyllis’s head, and Gloria was relieved she didn’t have to live in it full time.

Phyllis said this dream was a mash up of irrational incidents. The Abbotts wouldn’t have dinner at Society instead of their home, and Traci and Ashley wouldn’t support Jack and Gloria. Gloria said it was happening before Phyllis’s eyes. Phyllis vowed to put a stop to it. She marched over to the table and said that there had been a mistake. “When you’re talking about the great love of Jack’s life returning, you’re clearly talking about me and not Gloria,” Phyllis announced. Phyllis pulled out a chair to sit, and all the Abbotts yelled “No!” Ashley said there was no room for Phyllis here at this table. Phyllis was sure that Traci, the kind one, would welcome her. Traci wished she could, but it wasn’t her place. Jack said maybe they could find room; it was Thanksgiving. Ashley said that was exactly why Phyllis shouldn’t be here. Ashley asked if Jack forgot how many times Phyllis broke his heart. Traci noted that Phyllis cheated on Jack with his own brother. Phyllis countered that everyone made mistakes.

Phyllis didn’t understand what happened. Her dream had been going so well, but everything changed. Traci said that was life – everything changed, and either you were driving the train or a passenger on your own journey. The Abbotts talked amongst themselves. Jack intended to ask Gloria to return to Jabot after she got back to the table. Traci and Ashley loved that idea. Traci said Gloria always had a good business sense. Phyllis disagreed, and she said that Gloria was a grifter. Billy arrived. Phyllis met him at the door and asked what he was doing here when he said he was going home to Lily. Billy wasn’t sure why he was here, and he reminded Phyllis that this was her dream. Phyllis guessed Billy was here to annoy her. Billy apologized for the way he screwed things up between her and Jack. He knew that was one of the many reasons she didn’t like him, but they weren’t all that different. He said they did good things when they worked together, like when they exposed Sally and Tara. Phyllis agreed, but she didn’t want to rehash everything and hurt Jack.

Phyllis said the dream was going well until she saw the Abbotts. Billy suggested it was the guilt busting through. Phyllis said she didn’t feel guilty, but Billy said she exiled herself from Thanksgiving because she felt like she deserved to be alone. He asked why she didn’t spend time with Summer and Daniel, and she said her kids lived far away now. Billy said her kids were doing great, and that was hard for Phyllis because she was a fighter, and fighting for her kids was second nature. Dream Billy knew Phyllis missed Nick, but he thought she was at the Abbott celebration because she missed Jack. Phyllis was near tears. She said that Jack was in Spain with Ashley. Billy said Jack was fighting for Abby, because like Phyllis when it came to family, he was all in, and when it came to love, he was relentless and that included Phyllis. Phyllis thought Jack was amazing. “And you’re not?,” Billy asked. He told her she deserved love, whether she admitted it or not.

Phyllis said Billy was hardly the expert in relationships – he couldn’t wait to toss her aside when she slept with Nick. Billy thought that worked out the way it was meant to be. He fit with Lily, so maybe his relationships with Phyllis and Victoria had to blow up. He belonged with Lily, and he thought Jack brought out the best in Phyllis. He said she was more honest with Jack, and she didn’t lash out as much. He said she trusted Jack’s advice because she didn’t question his agenda. He thought she liked who she was with Jack, that is until the guilt ruined things. “If I chose to get Jack back, I mean what would I do,” she asked. She didn’t want to ruin things. Billy was about to give his take, but Gloria appeared and said time was up.

Gloria brought Phyllis back to her suite. Phyllis was desperate to get back to Society to hear Billy’s advice. He was about to give her the answers about what to do with her life. Laughing, Gloria said that Phyllis chose very odd confidants. “Yes I do, don’t I because I chose you,” Phyllis replied. Gloria asked why Billy would have the answers. Phyllis said she and Billy were similar – they were both reckless and wild, and he figured it out and she hadn’t. He figured out how he could be a screw up while still being with the person he loved. She begged to go back to Society, but then someone knocked on the door and woke Phyllis up.

A waiter had brought up dinner with all the trimmings. Phyllis didn’t order it, but the waiter said someone did. She told him to go home to his family, and she wished him a Happy Thanksgiving. Jack video called from the plane. He was the one who sent up the food. Phyllis was so touched she almost cried. She said she had this wild dream so she wasn’t sure the food was real at first. He promised it wasn’t a dream. He’d landed in Spain, and Ashley was dealing with the airport security. It was night there, and it was too late for him to do anything regarding Abby tonight. It wasn’t easy, but Jack had managed to get a Thanksgiving meal onto the flight. He thought he and Phyllis could have Thanksgiving together. He said he would’ve invited her to the Abbott family dinner if he were in town. He asked if she wanted to have Friendsgiving, unless he was intruding on another plan. Phyllis didn’t have any other plans. They ate “together.”

Recap written by Christine

Billy went home, and he was glad to see that Lily was there, because he wasn’t sure she would be. He knew they could both use time to compress, but that wasn’t possible, because they had to come up with a strategy, since Victor never got back to him. Lily testily noted that Billy didn’t want to work together before. He knew she was upset he offered to step down without discussing it with her. She thought that he knew how she’d feel about it, so that’s why he didn’t talk to her about it first. He said she would’ve tried to talk him out of it, and she probably would’ve succeeded. The last thing he’d wanted to do was show up at Victor’s humiliated, but he did it to protect her and ChancComm.

Billy thought that, once he was out of the picture, Victor might not be as obsessed with going after ChancComm. “Of course he will. If he can get our assets at a bargain price, that’s a huge win for them. Adam already told me that’s his goal,” Lily countered. She contended that he was making things worse by cutting and running. He clarified that he sacrificed himself, he didn’t cut and run. Lily didn’t see what more Newman Media could do. They’d already gotten ChancComm’s employee to release the article, ruined their reputation and gotten their source to recant, leading to the lawsuit. Billy had a sick feeling there was more to come. Lily thought that they needed to deal with the current crisis instead of focusing on what could happen. She noted that, last time, they were so focused on what might happen that he handed Victor and Adam the weapons to use against them. “You’re referring to the audio and video evidence Adam gave Rey claiming that I threatened him,” Billy said. Lily countered that Adam proved Billy threatened him. She loved him and she knew he was trying to protect the company, but he was so impulsive that he acted without thinking of the consequences. He thought that was why it was better for him to remove himself from the situation. She said that would make things worse because it would look like an admission of guilt. He asked what she thought they should do. She felt that they should weigh their options with their lawyers and work together as a team. She asked if he was capable of doing that.

Ashland and Victoria were in her office. She was shocked when he told her that Billy offered to step down from his co-CEO position. She didn’t know what to make of it – ChancComm was so important to Billy, and she thought this was the last thing he’d do. She wondered if Lily pushed him into it. Ashland highly doubted that, since Lily didn’t take kindly to his suggestion that she cut Billy loose. Victoria wondered how her father and Adam reacted to Billy waving the white flag. Ashland said they were gleeful. Victoria assumed that this was it – mission accomplished. Ashland began to explain that Victor and Adam were waiting for Billy to let his guard down. Before he could finish his thought, he winced, and Victoria rushed over to check on him.

Ashland was fine. He said his doctors told him that the side effects of the treatment he received in Peru would be a little rough. He reasoned that it was a good thing he was experiencing side effects because it probably meant that the treatment was working. Victoria wanted to take Ashland home, but he assured her that he was feeling much better already. He segued to Billy having to swallow a bitter pill, and she thought he was enjoying this discussion. Ashland wasn’t enjoying it as much as Victoria might think. He didn’t feel bad Billy, though, because Billy tried to sabotage the wedding. Six months ago, Ashland would’ve taken satisfaction into grinding Billy to dust, but now his priority was on getting healthy to have more time with Victoria. He said he’d let Adam and Victor handle Billy and have fun torturing him. Victoria thought that would be a very big mistake. Ashland was caught off guard, because he thought she let go of her old urge to protect Billy. She said this wasn’t about saving Billy – it was about what was best for Newman/Locke.

At first, Victoria didn’t want to get involved in the war between Victor and Billy, but now she realized it gave Adam an opening to take advantage of the situation, and he’d run with it. Ashland didn’t think Victoria was being fair. He pointed out that this plan had gotten him out from under a blackmail threat that had been plaguing him for decades. She was grateful for that, but she said that Ashland was the one taking all the risks – allowing the story about the fraudulent will to get out, and any leverage that Newman Media had against ChancComm was all due to Ashland’s lawsuit. Ashland agreed. “So, if you were the one taking all the risks and you have all of the leverage, can somebody please tell me why – why oh why – is Adam and Newman Media benefiting the most?,” Victoria asked. Victoria added that a big chunk of ChancComm consisted of a division she sold to them. Ashland and Victoria smiled. He saw where she was going with this. “You know, my father, he was never okay with me selling off this division to Billy. I have to think that he would be a little bit disappointed if he didn’t try to get it back,” Victoria said. Ashland called Victoria adorably brilliant. He loved the way her mind worked.

Ashland and Victoria went to Billy and Lily’s. Ashland commented on their lovely home. He thought it was a shame that they couldn’t have gotten together here as a blended family. Billy asked what they wanted. Ashland said he and Victoria had wanted everyone to get along, if only for the kids, but Billy had other ideas. Lily asked Ashland to get to the point. Billy wanted to hear from Victoria, noting that he’d tried to get a hold of her for awhile. She noted that she’d already texted her disgust about ChancComm publishing that article. She sold him the media division, and he continually used it as a weapon against her husband. Billy stated that they were hacked, and he said Victoria knew that. “Yes, but you authorized writing it, didn’t you?,” Victoria countered. Billy surmised that Victoria was either in on the scheme from the start, or she’d figured out a way to justify it – either way, it was ugly. Ashland said they heard about Billy’s offer to Victor, and presumably, he though that stepping down would protect Lily and ChancComm. Ashland thought that Billy might be able to understand Ashland’s desire to protect his company and the woman he loved by keeping Gaines’ allegations quiet. Billy understood. Ashland asked if Billy felt regret about his reckless callous behavior. Billy asked if they were here for an apology. Ashland said they were there to make an offer.

Billy didn’t think Ashland and was going to do them any favors, since he’d aligned himself with the Newmans and Gaines to set them up. Ashland said he wouldn’t let Billy play the victim. Ashland did what he had to do to defend himself, his wife and his company from Billy’s relentless attacks. Billy noted that he’d already promised not to personally attack Ashland, and he’d never do anything to hurt the mother of his children. He said he used Ashland’s information as leverage, information they all knew was true. “Your actions forced my hand,” Ashland contended. He didn’t want to spend the first few weeks of his marriage dealing with this crap. Ashland said that now that the retraction was out there, the situation had reversed itself, and ChancComm was the ones who had to defend their integrity and credibility. Lily maintained that they could handle anything Ashland and his partners threw at them. Ashland didn’t agree. Ashland knew Billy asked Victor to try and get Ashland to drop the lawsuit. Ashland asked if Victor and Adam could really be trusted to follow through. Billy asked if Ashland was saying he was going to turn on the Newmans. “I think Ashland is trying to point out that it was a waste of time going to my father when [Ashland] is the only one that can cancel the lawsuit,” Victoria clarified. Ashland said that he could prolong this onslaught of bad press against ChancComm and release the recordings of the threats. Lily wanted Ashland to get to the point. Ashland said he and Victoria preferred to come to a swift and final resolution, in contrast to Victor and Adam, who were willing to watch Billy and Lily flail in the wind while ChancComm’s value plummeted. Ashland said they were here to make them and Jill a lucrative offer for all involved. They wanted to bring ChancComm into the Newman/Locke fold, and they’d be happy to keep Lily on as CEO. Lily asked about Billy. “Out,” Ashland said. Billy asked Victoria if she was going to go along with this plan to exploit the damage Victor and Adam did and kick him out of the company. “Oh Billy. Always so slow to catch on. This is all Victoria’s idea,” Ashland revealed.

Before you complain about this offer, I want you to remember how desperately I begged you to leave us alone,” Victoria said to Billy. For one moment, in Italy, when he deleted the Gaines video, she thought he was going to do the right thing, but he came after them the minute he got back. Billy disagreed. He said that he was trying to stop Victor and Adam from coming after ChancComm. Victoria countered that he did something that would hurt her and her husband. He reiterated that he never planned to release the information about Ashland. He didn’t expect Victor, Adam or Ashland to believe him, but he hoped Victoria would know that he was telling the truth. Victoria wasn’t willing to put that kind of power in Billy’s hands, but she was open to giving Lily a chance. Lily asked why they thought she’d want to work for them – she’d seen firsthand that Ashland could be as ruthless as Victor and Adam. Ashland said he wouldn’t be taking an active role in managing the company, since he was focused on his health. Victoria promised Lily complete autonomy. She said that, since Newman/Locke merged they owned some companies that could potentially be folded into Lily’s division. Ashland was excited to see what Lily would do with an opportunity like this. Victoria told Lily to consider what was best for Billy. Lily didn’t think that pushing Billy out of a company he was passionate about was best. Victoria said that running the company into the ground wasn’t in Lily or Billy’s best interests, neither was standing by and watching it be taking it over by Adam, of all people. “Oh my God, even now you’re trying to protect Billy,” Lily exclaimed, which made Ashland bristle. Victoria just didn’t like the idea of Adam besting either of them, especially after what he’d done to their family. More importantly, she wanted a quick and peaceful resolution to the lawsuit, because it was best for the children. “You’re worried about the children? Then why go along with this lawsuit in the first place, knowing that we were hacked?,” Billy asked. Victoria was sure Billy and Lily needed some time to think about their decision, even though they had limited options. Ashland and Victoria left.

Billy said Newman/Locke and Newman Media were in a tug of war, and ChancComm was the rope. Lily wasn’t sure that was a real offer. She couldn’t imagine Victoria wanting to upset her dad right now, so Lily wondered if this was a trick. Lily suggested that Victoria and Ashland wanted to drive a wedge between her and Billy. She noted that they buttered her up while tearing Billy down. Billy admitted that everything Victoria and Ashland said was true. He thought they meant every word they said about Lily. He admired her, and he went to Victor and offered to step down because he believed in her. She knew his intentions were good, but she didn’t think that Victor would get Ashland to withdraw the lawsuit. He asked if she was thinking of giving up. Lily said it wasn’t up to them, it was up to Jill. She said he couldn’t make unilateral decisions on things they should decide together. He said he could walk away from the company, but he couldn’t stand it if things changed between them personally. He asked if they were okay, and she said of course. She kissed his cheek, then she went upstairs.

Victoria and Ashland returned to her office, and he asked why she was so quiet. She couldn’t stop thinking about Johnny and Katie. She said they had to protect the kids from the fallout, and he assured her that they would. Victoria thought this might be a good time to send the kids to boarding school, just temporarily, until the end of the school year. She said everyone who dealt with Billy had to expect dramatic highs and devastating lows. She knew Billy would go off the rails again, and she didn’t want the kids to experience it. He assumed it wouldn’t be easy for her either.

Victoria clarified that she had no intention of rushing to save Billy. “Whatever Lily might think, I’ve learned the hard way that there’s no upside to it, and he only resents it when I try,” Victoria said. Victoria explained that the last time Billy’s life was falling apart, he beat himself up about it, and the kids were scared and confused. Her instincts told her that she needed to protect them. He asked where that left Billy. Victoria was sure he’d be fine in the long run, and Jill would help him, just like she always did. Ashland thought Billy was fortunate to have such a supportive mother. Ashland supported whatever Victoria decided. He said it might be an advantage to have the kids out of the house, if his condition worsened. She was thinking the same thing. Victoria thought it’d be nice for the kids too, because they’d gain independence. Ashland wasn’t sure Billy would go along with it, since he’d be unemployed soon, he’d want to spend a lot of his extra free time with his kids. Victoria said she could handle Billy.

Billy was at Society drinking alone at the bar. Lily was back at home looking pensive. She called Jill and left a message regarding ChancComm.

Devon had Elena come to the house to check Dominic out. Elena said it was just a heat rash. The nanny had said the same thing, but Devon wanted a second opinion. Elena told Devon about an over the counter ointment he could use. Elena watched Devon with the baby and said she loved seeing him like this. She thought back to when they first met, and he was devastated about losing Hilary and their child. She knew they couldn’t be replaced, but it seemed like a lot of healing had taken place – he had a whole life now with Amanda, Moses and Dominic. Devon agreed that he was in a better place – people told him things would get better in time, and he didn’t believe it, but they were right. He was grateful to Elena who helped him through the grief. He felt terrible that Abby was going through the same thing. Elena said Abby was lucky to have Devon, and she obviously knew it since she trusted him with Dominic. He was glad he could help. Amanda came home, and Devon kissed her hello. Amanda said the jury was ready to give their verdict.

After Elena left, Amanda called Imani with the news. Imani was coming to the courthouse, but Naya didn’t want to be there, which Amanda understood. Amanda was scared that Sutton would be acquitted. Devon told her to stay positive, and he said that if that did happen, Amanda would find a new way to hold Sutton accountable. Amanda appreciated that Devon always knew exactly what she needed to hear. They left the baby and nanny at home and went to the courthouse.

While Devon went home to take care of some things, Amanda and Imani went to Society. Imani had wanted Sutton to be brought to justice, and he was convicted, but she was having a hard time processing it. It didn’t feel real. She grew up idolizing her grandfather, and he was the center of her world. She guessed Amanda was in the mood to celebrate, though. Amanda understood that this was hard for Imani, because she had a long complicated history with Sutton. Imani wasn’t trying to bring Amanda down or tell her to be sympathetic to Sutton. Amanda said good. She stated that he’d excluded her and her twin from the family and robbed her of her chance of ever knowing her father. Imani thought that once she overcame the shock, she’d be just as happy as Amanda was. Imani asked what kind of sentence Amanda thought Sutton would get. Amanda didn’t want to speculate, but she wondered what was next for their family. She knew she and Imani would be going into practice, but what about Naya? Imani said Naya was considering moving to Genoa City. Amanda was excited by the idea. Imani wasn’t thrilled about the prospect of Naya attempting to micromanage their lives. Amanda never experienced anything like that before, so it sounded wonderful to her. Imani said to just wait until Naya started nagging her to have a baby. Imani was caught off guard when Amanda said there was a baby at her house now if Naya needed a fix. Amanda realized they had a lot to catch up on.

Devon spent time with the baby at home, playing peekaboo, taking pictures for the baby’s grandparents, entertaining him while on a call with the company. Eventually, Devon held the baby and closed his eyes. The baby started to cry, and Devon got up and walked with him. When Amanda came home, Devon was asleep on the couch with the baby in his arms.

Mariah and Elena ran into each other at Crimson Lights, and Elena detailed her visit to Devon’s place. Elena thought Devon was being a little overprotective, but she saw it all the time with first time parents. She clarified that this was a figure of speech. She knew Devon would never refer to himself as Dominic’s parent. Mariah didn’t think anyone would blame Devon if he did – he was the biological father, and with Chance gone, Mariah was sure that Abby would be happy for Devon to step into a fatherly role. Elena asked how Mariah was. Mariah said she was finally on the road to recovery. Tessa had been so supportive. Elena asked if Mariah talked to a counselor, and Mariah said that the benefit of having a therapist mom was that you got counseling in every conversation.

Sally and Chloe met at Society. Sally had the best possible news – Adam wanted to go ahead with the video project with her hosting. Chloe thought that was awesome. Sally couldn’t believe this was happening, but Chloe could because it was a phenomenal idea. Chloe noted that they’d have to put in a lot of overtime to get this off the ground. Chloe knew that the original plan was for Sally to focus on other designers, but now that she was so popular, Chloe thought that the first video should be about showcasing Sally. That sounded good to Sally, especially since she’d given up any semblance of a personal life. She was taking Chloe’s advice – she was backing off Adam as a romantic option, and she’d told him as much.

Chloe thought Sally was trying to use reverse psychology on Adam to get him to pursue her. Sally said she wasn’t playing games – she was respecting Adam’s wishes. Sally recalled Chloe’s multiple warnings that she’d be courting disaster if she went near Chelsea’s ex, so she wasn’t going to. Sally wasn’t going to jeopardize this opportunity by trying to force something in her personal life that wasn’t meant to be.

Recap written by Christine

Ashley went to the main house to say goodbye to Victor and to let him know Jack would be coming along. Victor revealed that he and Devon found a military pin in Abby’s room that must be Chance’s. Victor said that it wasn’t necessary for Jack to go, because Victor was going instead. Nikki was walking in, and she overheard Victor’s plans. Nikki entered and said hi to Ashley. Victor was going to delegate his office work to Adam so that he could leave for Spain right away. Nikki didn’t understand why Victor changed his plans. He said he was afraid Abby would take unnecessary risks because once Abby got something into her head, she didn’t let it go. Ashley didn’t think the military pin changed their agreed-upon plan, and she didn’t see the point of them both going to Europe. Victor was adamant that he wanted to be there. Nikki suggested that Abby might be more receptive to her mother. Ashley was afraid that if they both went, Abby would feel ganged up on. Victor thought Jack’s presence would do the same, but Ashley said that she’d be speaking with Abby alone. Nikki said that if Victor stayed, he’d have all his investigative resources at his fingertips, so if Ashley ran into trouble, he could call in a favor with one of his many connections. Ashley promised that if Abby was in Spain, she’d find her and bring her home. Victor relented and told Ashley to call when she made it to Spain. Nikki told Ashley to call day or night. Ashley agreed and left. Victor guessed he’d just stick around and help Devon with the baby, if necessary. Nikki said this was a change for Victor – normally he wanted to control everything. He said he still did.

Nick was at Devon’s house. Devon revealed that Abby might be in Spain. Nick asked if there was any chance Chance was alive. Devon said Christine and the State Department didn’t think so. Nick said that when Abby accepted the truth, she’d be even more devastated. Devon said it’d be devastating for Dominic too. Nick considered going to Spain to find Abby. Victor showed up and brought Nick up to speed. Nick was surprised Victor didn’t go to Spain, given how important family was to him. Victor said he thought he could do more good at home. Victor asked how Noah was doing and he mentioned that he hadn’t seen much of his grandson. Nick noted that Noah still had the same number, so Victor could call him. Nick said he and Devon could wrap up their business later, and he left.

Devon asked about the tension he sensed between Nick and Victor. Victor said Nick seemed to think he manipulated his children and pitted them against each other. Victor hated having tension between him and his kids. He grew up without a father and didn’t know his mother well, and he’d always been very protective of his children, apparently unbeknownst to the children. So this bothered him enormously. He said being protective was part of being a father, as Devon would one day find out. Devon said he’d never been a father, but he could only imagine. Victor said that when Dominic grew up, Devon would understand. Victor stated that Dominic would need a strong father figure now that Chance wasn’t around. Devon said he’d do anything in the world for Dominic. Victor was happy to hear that.

At the cottage, Sharon told Noah that she was going to Crimson Lights. He didn’t respond until she yelled his name. He apologized and said he was just thinking. Sharon noted that this had been happening a lot. She was concerned, and he insisted he was fine. He left for a run to clear his head. Sharon texted Nick that they should talk about Noah.

When Sharon got to Crimson Lights, Tessa was there. Sharon asked about Mariah. She’d been calling, but Mariah was hard to get a hold of. According to Tessa, Mariah was throwing herself into work. Mariah was caught off guard when Abby left the baby with Devon. Tessa thought Mariah was feeling lost again. Tessa was trying to be there for Sharon, but she was busy too – she was finishing her first LP. Noah told Sharon that Tessa asked him to collaborate on the artwork. Sharon hoped Noah said yes, because he’d been a little down, and she thought a project would be good for him. She thought he’d gotten his heart broken in London.

Jack ran into Phyllis at Crimson Lights on the patio. She invited him to join her, saying they could work on getting back to normal. He had to decline because he was on his way to Spain with Ashley to look for Abby. He said that Abby might be trying to prove Chance was alive, which broke Jack’s heart. He wanted to be there for Ashley and Abby. Phyllis thought Jack’s family was lucky to have him. Sharon walked out with an order of coffee and sandwiches for Jack and Ashley’s plane ride. She threw in some free cookies and said she hoped he found Abby. He said he and Ashley just wanted to bring Abby home so she could heal. Phyllis lent her support, and then Jack left. Sharon gave Phyllis a knowing smile.

Phyllis didn’t want to play games, so she told Sharon to just say what she had to say. Sharon wondered what was going on with Phyllis and Jack. She noticed that Phyllis and Jack seemed so close, and just a few short days after Phyllis and Nick broke up. Phyllis said her relationship with Jack was none of Sharon’s business. Secondly, Jack had been a great friend to Phyllis during this breakup, as she was sure Sharon had been for Nick. Phyllis told Sharon to zip it. Sharon thought that was a vehement reaction to a simple question, unless Phyllis had been asking herself the same questions. Phyllis didn’t need Sharon’s analysis. Sharon would hate to find out that Nick got hurt because Phyllis decided to rekindle an old relationship. Phyllis thought that was a cheap shot. She was heartbroken over how things ended with Nick, and she thought it’d be best if they just moved on. At that moment, Nick arrived.

Nick asked what was going on. Phyllis said Sharon thought they broke up over Jack, and she told Sharon to keep her nose out of it. Phyllis said everyone seemed to have an opinion on why they didn’t last, but she thought she and Nick could agree that it was no one’s business but theirs. Nick asked why Phyllis was so upset. “Because we failed. I failed and nobody but us should pass judgment. That’s for sure,” Phyllis said. She left. “Methinks she protests too much,” Sharon said. Nick stated that he wasn’t going to discuss this with Sharon, for obvious reasons. Sharon thought they should talk about Noah. Sharon said he was moping, and it wasn’t like him. She was beginning to think it was serious. Nick thought every breakup at that age was serious. Sharon wasn’t sure about that, and she couldn’t get any details out of Noah. Nick said guys were like that sometimes – he didn’t want to talk about Phyllis. Sharon thought something was different here. She was starting to think that whatever happened in London hurt Noah more than he was willing to talk about. Nick said Noah was a grown man and he was smart, so he’d figure things out. Sharon wanted to help her son, no matter how old he was.

Noah came home, and Faith walked downstairs and teased him about smelling bad after his run. He returned the banter, saying at least he’d gone outside today. He thought that she was just waking up. She clarified that she’d gone to school and the coffeehouse. She asked what was bugging him, and he asked when she turned into Mom. He admitted he wasn’t great at hiding his feelings, and she said that was because he was a terrible liar, which wasn’t a bad thing. She suggested that he unburden himself to her. Faith thought Sharon might calm down if she knew Noah had confided in someone. He asked if she was an expert, and Faith said after last year, she had a PhD in Mom-handling. She promised that she wouldn’t tell anyone what he said.

Noah met a girl in London, a fellow artist, and he fell pretty hard. Faith thought that was nice. She mentioned that she and Moses had a lot in common too. Noah said he and this girl were competitive in a healthy way – they critiqued each other’s work and celebrated each other’s success. Living the dream. He wasn’t exactly sure what went wrong, and he’d been preoccupied by trying to figure it out. The only thing he could think of was that he started becoming more successful than she was, and he thought she started resenting him because he was getting more openings, commissions and good reviews. Things got ugly, and they had bitter nasty fights. He was in love with this girl, but she left, and he was crushed. Faith was sorry. She thought he deserved someone who’d support him, not get petty and jealous. He said people were complicated and so was success. Once you got success, you realized it changed you very little. He’d tried to explain that to his ex, and she accused him of patronizing her. London became a place filled with memories he didn’t want to relive. Faith asked if he wanted the woman back. He didn’t want the turmoil back, but he didn’t want to make the same mistakes again. “Then don’t,” she said, and he laughed at the idea that it was that simple. She suggested that instead of stewing, he came to Crimson Lights with her, but she insisted that he shower first.

Back at Crimson Lights, Tessa tried to record a fun video for Mariah, but she thought it was cringey, so she deleted it. Noah and Faith came in and joined her. Sharon and Nick watched from the patio and he said that Noah looked okay to him. Inside, Noah asked what Faith wanted to study when she went to college. He hoped she’d be an artist. Tessa joked that there was a lot of money in that – which was why they were called starving artists. Noah countered with a joke on musicians’ salaries. Faith wanted to focus on the present, where her biggest decision was what dessert to have. Noah wanted a brownie, and Tessa suggested a blondie. Faith went to the counter and saw her parents peering in. Sharon waved Faith over and asked how her brother was doing. Faith said Noah was okay, and they had a good talk about this girl in London. Faith didn’t want to go into detail and break Noah’s confidence. Faith went back inside. Nick said that just because Noah wasn’t talking to his parents didn’t mean he wasn’t opening up to someone. Sharon smiled – their little girl was old enough to be a confidant to her brother.

Noah told Tessa that talking to Faith made him feel better. She was having ups and downs and she was beginning to realize that was just part of an adult. She now knew she didn’t have to plummet into despair over every bump. You surrounded yourself with people who made you laugh, and you kept going. That made sense to him. When he was with her, he didn’t feel like he was trying to be okay. She was happy and she said friends cheer you up. She asked him to help her with her video, and he said sure. She made a video for Mariah that teased Noah. Faith looked over and saw Tessa laughing.

Adam and Sally had a meeting in his office. The social media team had told Adam that Sally was a hot commodity. She confirmed the rumors – she had a lot of new followers and her email was blowing up. He thought they needed to capitalize on this. He thought it was an opportune time to follow through with Chloe and Sally’s early idea to make Sally an on screen personality. He asked if she was still interested in that kind of exposure. She was excited by the opportunity and she asked what the budget was. He told her to come up with a proposal and then they’d talk. She already had a lot of ideas, because this was kind of her plan from the beginning. He always suspected she had one, since she was too driven to leave anything to chance. He assured her that was a compliment. She said her big master plan went through one big change – she’d given up on the idea of them seeing each other outside of the office.

Sally had been thinking about Tuscany, when Adam put the brakes on and said he wasn’t ready for a new relationship. At the time, she’d held out hope that he’d come around. She was poised to have an incredible career thanks to him and Chloe, and she didn’t want to mess it up. She was drawn to him, but she’d come to accept boundaries at work. She was glad to be colleagues and friends and to focus on her impending success. She left.

Victor went to the office and told Adam that he wasn’t going to Spain after all. Ashland arrived, and he stood in the hallway listening to the conversation inside the office. Victor said that Billy came to him and offered to step away from ChancComm if Newman Media backed off and left Lily alone. Victor liked the idea of watching Billy publicly resigning. Adam asked what Victor planned to do. Adam didn’t think Victor was seriously considering the offer. Ashland walked in and said he was curious as well. Victor said that Billy’s offer came as a surprise. Victor didn’t think Billy had it in him. “Humility?,” Ashland asked. “No. knowing when to fold,” Adam replied. Victor said exactly. Victor stated that Billy never knew when to fold. Adam didn’t see why they’d waste all this work to ruin ChancComm and scooping it up just for the fun of ruining Billy. “You don’t understand how long that man’s been a pain in my side,” Victor said. Victor enjoyed seeing Billy dangling in the wind.

Ashland said he had a run in with Lily earlier, and she had no idea about Billy’s proposal. Ashland added that Lily suggested that this was all about animosity toward Billy and that Ashland was being used as a weapon. Adam said that Ashland was his own best weapon. Ashland agreed that this was personal for all of them. Ashland got what he wanted – the pleasure of seeing Billy twist in the wind after trying to destroy Ashland. Ashland was happy about how htings were going and he was going to repay the favor by going along with whatever they decided. Victor said they’d let Billy think they accepted the offer – call a temporary truce then let him have it. Adam said that when Lily gave up or Jill ordered a sale, Newman Media would buy it at a deep discount.

Ashland left. Adam asked when they would take Billy down, and Victor said they’d let him dangle over the fire a little further.

Ashley and Jack were on the plane. She was down because they weren’t going to have the holiday she thought they would – gathered around the table celebrating Dominic’s first Thanksgiving. He promised they’d have that celebration, even if it wasn’t on the actual day. She was thankful for him.

Ashley called Victor. Adam offered to help, but Victor said it was all covered. Ashley told Victor that she, Jack and Victor’s security people were on their way to Spain. Ashley’s instincts told her that Abby was going to Spain. Victor told Ashley to be safe and bring their daughter home.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Ashley: I hope you didn’t come here for an update about abby, ’cause i haven’t heard a thing.

Devon: No, I came here to tell you that I have.

Ashley: Is she okay? What did she say?

Devon: She left me a note.

Ashley: “Devon, knowing dominic is safe with you is the only way I can do this. And I do need to do it. Not just for me, but for dom. Please tell him I love him more than anything in the world. And I’m afraid this is gonna take longer than I first thought. Thanks for being there for us. Abby.” But where did she go?

Devon: I think I have an idea.

Abby: If I charter this jet, it is imperative that I have your absolute discretion. You can tell no one that I am taking this flight. Especially my father, victor newman. Whatever your silence costs, i am willing to pay. Round trip to majorca, spain. One passenger flying there, and two coming back.

[ Sighs ]

Phyllis: There’s a reason our marriage didn’t work out.

Jack: Yeah, we went through a lot, more than our share of heartache, but also some great times. Some of the best times in my life. And you are still the most captivating, fascinating woman I have never known…and sometimes so gorgeous, it hurts.

Phyllis: Jack —

Jack: No, let me finish. You are also complicated and frustrating and hot-headed and careless and…

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ] Yeah.

Jack: But all in all, a pretty spectacular package.

Phyllis: Ah. Well, you have had too much to drink.

Jack: You know, I keep thinking maybe — maybe the fact that we’ve spent so much time together lately, I… maybe the reason I didn’t move on with my romantic life was… ’cause I already was with the most amazing woman I’ve ever known.

Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ]

Jack: Hey.

Phyllis: Hey! Oh!

Jack: I’m sorry, I did not mean to startle you. I —

Phyllis: No, no, you — you didn’T. I was just thinking about things. I was thinking about work.

Jack: Well, I hope you’re doing better than you were when I ran into you earlier.

Phyllis: Oh. You didn’t come to take my temperature, did you?

Jack: Not to worry, a colleague suggested I meet him here for a quick meeting, but nothing more.

Phyllis: Well, I mean, ’cause I am fine.

Jack: Well, glad to hear it. You — you look…okay.

Phyllis: I am okay. Really, I am. Not that you can’t check on me, because you can check on me. You know, that’s what we do with each other, you know? Because we’re friends.

Jack: Duly noted.

Phyllis: Yeah. Hey, did you happen to see, um…that chanccomm article on ashland?

Jack: Read every word of it.

Phyllis: Yeah, and then that gaines guy recanting his story and chanccomm has to issue a retraction? That’s a mess.

Jack: Yeah, I haven’t talked to billy about it, but I think he got caught up in trying to expose locke’s shady past and, I’m sure, hoped to bring adam and victor down a notch or two. It’s gonna cost him. And lily.

Ashland: I’m confused. You’ve worked yourself into a lather talking about how I’m trying to ruin you and your partner, but if anybody has the right to be upset, it’s me. I’m the victim of your underhanded tactics.

Lily: [ Chuckles ] I think we both know that’s a lie. As much of a lie as gaines saying that the story about your past is not true.

Ashland: You know, a wise person would never have willingly staked their company’s reputation on the word of a vindictive blackmailer, which is exactly what billy did.

Lily: You weaponized gaines and aimed him directly at chanccomm.

Ashland: And the two of you pulled the trigger.

Lily: Someone hacked into our server.

Ashland: And got ahold of a story billy had ready to go? If the hacking even happened, it only expedited its release. Since you’re the cautious and the savvy one, I imagine you tried to dissuade your partner, but he’s impossible to control, which is why I chose to remain alone at the top when I was building my empire. You tether yourself to the wrong person, you both go down together.

Billy: What are you waiting for? I told you what you wanted to hear, victor. You won.

Victor: And?

Billy: I walk away from the company that I poured my heart and soul into. You, adam, and ashland, you promise to leave chanccomm and lily alone. Let her run it on her own, free of any litigation or retaliation or sabotage of any kind. I’m offering you my head on a platter, man. Is that still not enough for you?

Victor: Interesting proposition.

From the very first touch,

provided by…

Jack: No problem. See you then.

Phyllis: Bad news?

Jack: No, my meeting was rescheduled. Oh, dear, that means it looks i am just here for you.

Phyllis: Well, that’s not true, unless you had esp and you knew your meeting was gonna get canceled. And we both know that’s not true.

Phyllis: You doubt my ability to see the future? Oh, ye of little faith.

Phyllis: [ Laughs ] Well, you are very good at many things, but being a prophet is not one of them.

Jack: You want me to prove it?

Phyllis: Yeah, prove it.

Jack: Okay. Things have been strange between us. I think you feel it, too. If we weren’t self-conscious enough because of feelings that I confessed, now that you and nick are no longer together, it makes things even more awkward.

Phyllis: I’m not awkward. I’m not.

Jack: You’re interrupting my prophecy.

Phyllis: Okay.

Jack: I see a time in the not-too-distant future where things between us will go back to normal. We will laugh and talk and challenge each other and question each other and come to each other with advice without a moment of awkwardness. And we will go on with our lives like we did before I opened my big mouth. I see it clear as day.

Phyllis: Uh —

Jack: Have a good day.

Devon: I mean, I can’t really talk because when people told me that my wife was missing and presumed dead overseas, I got on a plane and went looking for her.

Ashley: Even after everybody told you that it was incredibly dangerous and the most important thing you could do is to be present for your child?

Devon: Believe me, I know this isn’t logical for abby.

Ashley: You’re right, she’s thinking with her heart.

Devon: Yeah. She obviously thinks that this is what she needs to do to heal, and that’s go and see for herself if chance is alive.

Ashley: Or face the reality that he’s not.

Devon: We need to have somebody looking in valencia for us.

Ashley: [ Sighs ] I was so sure that we convinced her it was too dangerous.

Devon: Well, she thinks it’s worth the risk.

Ashley: Well, I sure as hell don’T. We’ve got to find her before it’s too late.

Victor: This proposal of yours is quite intriguing. It shows qualities that I never thought you possessed. You’re actually willing to sacrifice for the sake of others.

Billy: Look, I dragged lily into my plan to threaten you and adam. My choice, my fault. I take full responsibility. You take me out of the equation. You let lily run chanccomm on her own. She will do it with integrity. She doesn’t need to be punished for the choices that I’ve made.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

Victor: Alright, billy boy, i will consider your proposal.

Billy: You do realize that everything I’ve done here, all of it, was to protect your daughter.

Victor: Now you’re warming the cockles of my heart, billy boy. I’ve got some other business to attend to. Why don’t you show yourself out?

Lily: Do you really think a lawsuit is gonna stop us? This is not over, locke, not by a long shot.

Ashland: [ Chuckles ] I think we both know it is. Your news outlet published libelous statements about me, statements that tarnished my name and my achievements.

Lily: I’m sorry, do you think that now that you’re married to victoria you’re some kind of saint? Your name has always been associated with heartless behavior.

Ashland: Well, the difference is that those other stories about me that were published were true.

Lily: This is true, too, even if you want to claim otherwise.

Ashland: You failed the first lesson of journalism. You relied on one source for all of your information — a man who admitted that his motivation was purely out of hatred and — and jealousy. And he recanted it, which means my lawsuit is anything but frivolous.

Lily: Okay, if you don’t want to admit the truth, that’s fine, although it’s pretty obvious what is true, given the fact that you told victoria the exact same story that gaines told us.

Ashland: Oh, what makes you think that I did that?

Lily: Billy and I were there. We talked to victoria.

Ashland: Were any of these conversations on the record?

Lily: No, of course not.

Ashland: Well, then who’s to say they actually happened?

Lily: [ Chuckles ] Okay, look, if you want to play these games, that is fine, but honestly, I’m disappointed. I really expected more from you.

Ashland: Really? You just got finished telling me how despicable I am.

Lily: You know, I’m actually really surprised that you even went along with adam and victor’s plot. I mean, they used your past as their weapon. I mean, I really didn’t think the locke ness monster would do something like that.

Ashland: Nobody uses me.

Lily: Well, I guess they do now. ‘Cause you know this isn’t about business, right? This is about victor’s long-standing battle with billy.

Ashland: Ah.

Lily: So why are you going along with it?

Ashland: I’m not under victor’s thumb, if that’s what you’re implying. I’m simply trying to squelch an accusation that paints me in a terrible light in the eyes of the world and, more importantly, in the eyes of my son, and you would do the same if you were in my position.

Lily: Do not compare yourself to me.

Ashland: I admire your bravery, so I’ll give you some free advice. This isn’t about victor’s hatred of your partner. It’s about billy’s inability to let go of victoria.

Lily: He has.

Ashland: Open your eyes. Billy wasn’t doing the world a favor by publishing a story about my so-called checkered past. No. He did it for an audience of one. You see, billy is so determined that I look like the villain in victoria’s eyes that he will go to any extreme, even publishing a story — a ridiculous story — without doing due diligence. And if you’re really concerned about protecting chanccomm — and yourself — cut him loose and move forward on your own.

Billy: Bad news travels fast. I’m sure you couldn’t wait to get over here.

Jack: Believe me, this is the last thing I want to share, but I just learned it this morning and I think you need to know.

Billy: What? What happened?

Jack: There’s no easy way to say this. There was an explosion at chance’s safe house. He is missing and presumed dead.

Billy: What? You sure that he was in there?

Jack: They found some of his personal effects at the site — his watch, his wedding ring.

Billy: Geez, jack. I got to be honest, with everything he’s survived, I kind of thought that he was invincible.

Jack: Yeah, I think we all did.

Billy: I never for a second thought that he wasn’t gonna come back here and raise his kid. How’s abby?

Jack: She’s struggling. She’s really struggling. So much so that she’s left dominic with devon while she tries to find a way to put her life in motion again.

Billy: How’s nina? Have you talked to my mom, by chance?

Jack: I haven’t talked to either of them, but I’m sure they are both shattered.

Billy: Yeah. I’ll reach out to abby.

Jack: Good.

Billy: My mom left me a few messages, but I haven’t been able to get back to her yet. Now I know that the first couple were probably because of this, and the other ones are because she’s the ceo of this company and she’s probably wondering what the hell just happened. And I know you know, so let’s have it. I’m sure you have plenty to say on the matter.

Victor: So, when did you receive this?

Devon: Right after I spoke with mrs. Newman. I went home. I was upstairs with dominic for just a little while, and when i came back down, abby must have slipped it under my door.

Ashley: Did you speak with anyone that saw her?

Devon: I checked with the doorman, and he said he didn’t see her go in or out, which means she either used the back door to the building or she sent somebody.

Victor: So she obviously didn’t want to be seen.

Ashley: That makes me feel even worse because, clearly, she has planned this escape. She has you taking care of the baby. She sneaks out of here before anybody’s awake. She must’ve felt so alone, like she couldn’t be honest with anybody.

Victor: Because she knew if she had told us what she intended to do, we would have stopped her, which is what we’re gonna do now. If you’re on medicare, remember,

Lauren: Just the woman i wanted to see.

Phyllis: Oh, again? Why? What have I done now?

Lauren: Nothing, but I heard that your escape club is the perfect place to relax and unwind and have your greatest fantasies come true. I’ve read that in your ad.

Phyllis: Yeah, yeah. Yeah [Speaks indistinctly] Yeah. Is this for you?

Lauren: [ Chuckles ] No. It’s for one of my buyers. She’s coming into town, and i thought I’d treat her.

Phyllis: Oh, she must be a great buyer, because you’re rewarding her like this.

Lauren: I know. Well, she’s one of the best. And between, you know, taking care of fenmore’s needs and raising her family, she doesn’t have a lot of time for herself, so I thought maybe you and i could toss some ideas around and give her an afternoon to remember.

Phyllis: Oh, for sure. What does she like?

Lauren: Wow, that’s a really good question.

Phyllis: Oh.

Lauren: I have no idea. Think I need to call her.

Phyllis: It’s hard to know what any of us like, isn’t it? What we think we like or what others think we should have. Or what’s bad for us.

Lauren: I don’t think we’re talking about the escape club anymore.

Phyllis: What? Why would you say that?

Lauren: Well, are you having second thoughts about nick? Do you think you want to give it another try?

Phyllis: Oh, no, mnh-mnh. It’s definitely over. It’s over. Um…I just think being single has me off-kilter, that’s all.

Lauren: Well, and I think i know why. Because it’s very hard for you to let people in, but once they’re in your heart, you have a hard time letting them go.

Phyllis: Oh, there are a lot of people I’ve let out of here, trust me.

Lauren: Yeah, I’m sure, but…I know you’ll always care about nick, just like you’ve never stopped caring about jack.

Phyllis: You know what? I have a great idea for your buyer. Just give a second. I’m gonna look into it.

Lauren: Phyllis?

Jack: Okay, as long as you brought it up, what the hell happened?

Billy: Well, I’ll tell you this much, traci could sure write one hell of a book about this story. Guarantee it would be a best-seller. Corporate intrigue, sabotage, revenge — it’s got it all.

Jack: This blackmailer, this gaines — you put all your faith in him? He sounds like a pretty shady character.

Billy: Yeah, jack, you know what? I really don’t want to get into the gory details right now. All I’m gonna say is that i thought I had it under control, and I didn’T. But everything in that story is 100% true.

Jack: Even though he’s on record denying it?

Billy: All part of victor and adam’s elaborate scheme to bring me to my knees.

Jack: Okay, maybe you better share some of those gory details with me, then.

Billy: I brought gaines to tuscany with me for the sole reason to make sure that victoria knew the truth about the man that she was gonna marry.

Jack: You did? How come I never saw him?

Billy: Because I didn’t want anyone to see him until I was able to talk to victoria. Victor and adam found him and they flipped him to their side. Threatening him, giving him money, probably both. Jesse gaines cares about his bank account more than anything else.

Jack: And yet this is the guy you aligned yourself with.

Billy: Yes, jack! It was an error in judgment, alright? What else do you want me to say? You saw the retraction, did you not?

Jack: In today’s world, that is almost meaningless. Come on, the story is out there. Millions of sites have covered it, and the damage done to chanccomm you can’t undo.

Billy: You don’t think that i know that? I screwed up, okay? I made a deal with a double-dealing son of a bitch, and I got played. I never intended to release that article. It was simply a threat to make sure that victor and adam stopped coming after my company. And it blows my mind that nobody understands that the only thing I was trying to do was find out the truth. They’re all criminals! I gambled. It’s what you do in business, right? I rolled the dice and I lost.

Devon: After I found that note, I gave my private investigator, denise tolliver, a call and put her on the case to find abby.

Victor: Well, I’ll put my people on it, as well. Together, we’ll find her, okay?

Ashley: Maybe they’ll find out that she never left town. Though, actually, every instinct in my body is telling me that she’s probably left the country.

Victor: It just occurs to me she may have chartered a plan to cover her tracks.

Devon: She could be in the air right now.

Victor: I don’t give a damn where she is — spain or here. We’ll find her.

Devon: Well, don’t you think we need to put somebody in valencia?

Ashley: Well, it can’t be you, devon. I mean, abby’s counting on you to stay with the baby.

Devon: No, absolutely, i wouldn’t — wouldn’t dream of leaving him.

Victor: I have some business to attend to, but I can easily rearrange my schedule.

Ashley: That won’t be necessary. I’m going. How did olay top expensive creams?

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Jack: I am not here to condemn you. I’m not here to judge you.

Billy: Thank you.

Jack: I am, however, deeply concerned about your gambling analogy.

Billy: Are you kidding me? Jack, my life is falling apart. I’m not really concerned about my choice of —

Jack: Gambling has been a major problem in your life, billy, and I’m not just talking about the money you lost playing poker. You were ceo of jabot, you were reckless, you took great chances, you took giant risks that you knew would pay off, only they didn’t, and you lost your job.

Billy: And you see history repeating itself, like I haven’t learned a thing.

Jack: You have put everything that you and lily have built here in jeopardy because you’re still willing to take those crazy chances. Lily deserves more than that. So does jill, so do your kids.

Billy: I’m gonna ask you to tread lightly, jack.

Jack: You are on the verge of losing everything you have, billy. I’m sure I don’t have to tell you, you have run out of second chances. You’ve got to find some way to turn this thing around.

Billy: I already have. I just did that.

Jack: Wait, what does that mean?

Billy: I went to victor and told him that he won. Told him that I will step down as long as he agrees to leave chanccomm and lily alone.

Lily: Sorry, you did what?

Victor: But why would you put yourself into the same danger that abby is in? It doesn’t make any sense.

Ashley: I can bring somebody from your security team. Preferably someone who speaks spanish and knows the lay of the land.

Victor: [ Sighs ] You really don’t want me to go, do you?

Ashley: It’s not about that, victor, honestly. I think I have a better chance of convincing her to come back home. I can appeal to her, mother-to-mother.

Victor: Alright. I guess that makes sense. I’ll call my people to get the jet ready, and then you can take off for spain as soon as you’re packed, okay?

Ashley: Thank you.

Victor: Okay.

[ Cellphone rings ] It’s my private investigator. Yes? What? Okay, I’ll be right there.

Devon: What did he say?

Victor: Apparently, they found someone fitting abby’s description at a restaurant right next to the motel outside of town.

Devon: Really? Well, I’d like to go, if that’s okay.

Victor: Yeah.

Ashley: I’ll stay here with the baby and get packed.

Victor: I’ll keep you posted.

Ashley: Okay. I’ll keep my fingers crossed.

Devon: Thank you, ashley.

Ashley: Hi, my love. Hi, my love.

Jack: I’m gonna get out of the way and leave you two alone.

Billy: Probably a good idea.

Lily: Please tell me that i misheard you.

Billy: No, you didn’T. I went straight to the source of the problem.

Lily: To victor.

Billy: Enough is enough, lily.

Lily: [ Sighs ]

Billy: Look, we both know that I am his target, okay? You don’t need to get caught up in all this mess. So I told him that I’m gonna walk away from chanccomm, leave you in charge, as long as he calls off the dogs.

Lily: Billy, what the hell were you thinking? You cannot make a unilateral decision like that. Look, was this supposed to be, like, a noble gesture or something? There is nothing noble about making a decision that so profoundly affects chanccomm without even talking to me about it first.

When you have nausea,

Devon: I think we’re too late. There’s nothing here. There’s no bags or anything.

Victor: Not really surprising. I guess she’s trying to stay a step ahead of us.

Devon: Well, yeah, the clerk said that she — she paid with cash and checked in under an alias, so I’d say so.

Victor: You know, the only good thing about people running away is that they make a mistake, they slip up.

Devon: Well, do you think she left something behind?

Victor: Let’s take a look.

Devon: Hey, hang on a second.

Victor: What?

Devon: There’s something right here. It’s a military pin.

Victor: I’ll be damned. I bet you that belongs to chance.

Devon: I think it has to belong to chance, right?

Victor: Oh, my god.

Devon: Housekeeping hasn’t been in here yet. This wouldn’t just be hanging around like that.

Victor: That just confirms my worst fears. She probably thinks that chance is still alive.

Ashley: This is your lion. That’s right. That’s your lion, your friend.

[ Cellphone chimes ]

[ Doorbell rings ] It’s open.

Jack: Hey, I hope I’m not interrupting.

Ashley: No, come on in.

Jack: I just came to — oh, look who’s here. Hey, dominic. God, isn’t he a cutie?

Ashley: Isn’t he just the cutest?

Jack: I came by to tell you i went to see billy and tell him the news about chance.

Ashley: Thank you for doing that.

Jack: And I wanted to check on abby.

Ashley: She’s not here. She’s gone. She left a note for devon saying that she had something she had to do and it was gonna take her longer than she anticipated.

Jack: Well, it had to be important for her to leave this little bundle of joy for even a minute. Any idea where she is?

Ashley: Uh, yeah, she’s looking for chance. She doesn’t believe that he died in that attack on the safe house, jack.

Jack: Oh, god. Clearly, she needs more answers than she’s getting from the state department.

Ashley: Exactly. I’m going to spain to find her and bring her back.

Jack: Wait, you’re going alone?

Ashley: Well, I have somebody from victor’s security team. I have them.

Jack: You have me, too. I’ll go with you.

Ashley: I don’t need you to, jack.

Jack: No, I’m sure you’re in good hands, but, no, I’ll come along. I can help. It might be good to have somebody else along. I’m not taking no for an answer. Besides, it’s probably a good time for me to get out of town.

Ashley: Why?

Jack: I need a change of pace.

Ashley: What are you running from?

Jack: You have bigger problems to worry about than my personal life.

Ashley: Okay. Alright. You’re avoiding my question, so now I’m suspicious. Tell me what’s wrong.

Jack: [ Sighs ]

Phyllis: Alright, so I put this list together for your buyer. It’s guaranteed to blow her mind.

Lauren: Ooh! I trust your judgment.

Phyllis: Ah, no one’s said that to me before.

Lauren: Huh. Good. Let’s go back to discussing what we were talking about before you scampered off.

Phyllis: Uh, excuse me, i don’t scamper.

Lauren: Really?

Phyllis: Hmm.

Lauren: What do you call it? You had the strangest reaction after I said jack’s name.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] It’s because I’ve been having all of these thoughts that i can’t get out of my mind ever since I had this conversation with amanda, telling her about my history with jack and nick.

Lauren: And what on earth did she say to you that got you so worked up?

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] She said that my relationship with jack is not entirely platonic.

Lauren: That’s actually very astute. It’s never been platonic.

Phyllis: I did not cheat on nick.

Lauren: Oh, I don’t mean to imply that you did. It’s just that you and jack could never be just pals. You could just never be.

Phyllis: Why not?

Lauren: Because he’s handsome, generous, charismatic jack who thinks the world of you, and you admire and appreciate him. Honey, you have been through so much with and without him, and it’s just always been special between the two of you. Undeniable, unbreakable.

Phyllis: Oh, gosh. I just keep on thinking of us and — oh, gosh. I just don’t know what to do with these thoughts that just keep on popping into my head.

Lauren: You know, I, uh… I’ve been able to talk to him a little bit lately, and not to break confidence, but he has been saying that he’s missing having someone special in his life. And for him, you are the golden standard.

Phyllis: Wait, you’re not implying that jack and I should get back together.

[ Chuckles ] You’re not implying that. That’s ludicrous. That’s ludicrous, given all of our history.

Lauren: No, I — well [Chuckles] You two did love each other enough to get married twice. You’ve never been able to be completely out of each other’s lives, so, yeah, you’re right. That’s no sign that there’s residual feeling.

Phyllis: We’re friends. We have a very special friendship.

Lauren: Mm-hmm. And, you know, now that I think back, you were so determined to prove that sally was up to something. Are you sure that it was summer you were protecting?

Phyllis: Oh, oh, seriously? Um, I was protecting you and your company, as well.

Lauren: Uh-huh, and jack.

Phyllis: Yeah, and jack because sally’s horrible and she should never be with someone like jack.

Lauren: And you weren’t just a little bit jealous?

Phyllis: Oh, jealous? Um…are you serious? Really? Is that where you’re going? Jealous.

Lauren: Come on. I love you guys.

Phyllis: [ Exhales sharply ] I — I don’t know what it is between me and jack. I don’t know what it is. It is a very special connection. That’s all. Oh, my god. What if I do want more than friendship with jack?

[ Sighs ]

Lauren: Wow. That is quite an admission.

Phyllis: I don’t know what to do with all these thoughts and these feelings, if anything.

Lauren: Okay, well, I think you need to take time to find out where these feelings are coming from. I mean, you just ended things with nick, and you’ve been spending a lot of time with jack, crying on those very comforting shoulders, so of course you would have all these complicated emotions.

Phyllis: Yeah, I don’t even know what to do with them. You know, I hate them.

Lauren: Can I just say one thing?

[ Sighs ] You and jack are in a really good place. I would hate to see either one of you hurt, so proceed with caution.

Ashley: Tell me what’s wrong. I know it’s not business because I read the quarterly report. Congratulations, by the way.

Jack: Thank you.

Ashley: So then it’s personal?

Jack: And private.

Ashley: Private.

[ Chuckles ] That’s funny. You’re not back with sally, are you?

Jack: No, of course I’m not.

Ashley: [ Sighs ] Thank god. Sounds like it has to be somebody who’s problematic, though.

Jack: Nick and phyllis have decided to break things off, and it’s stirred up some emotions.

Ashley: No, no, no, no, no! Please don’t tell me you’re rekindling that romance.

Jack: Did I say that?

Ashley: You don’t have to say a thing. I can see it in your eyes, jack.

Jack: I’m sorting out how i feel.

Ashley: Okay, as you sort, could you remind yourself of the hell she’s put you through. I mean, really, every time she’s broken up with you. I’m not trying to be mean. I just can’t take it. I can’t take seeing you —

Jack: Thank you, sis. I appreciate your concern.

Ashley: I’m not done lecturing you, jackie.

Jack: No, I’m sure you’re not, but look what time it is, and I got to get home and pack some things for this trip.

Ashley: Okay. I’m just happy it’s a long flight. It’s gonna give me lots of time to knock some sense into you.

Jack: Don’t waste your energy on me. Abby has far bigger problems than I do right now.

Ashley: True.

Jack: I’ll see you later.

Ashley: Alright.

[ Huffs ] Oh, my sweetheart. You miss your mama? I’m gonna go to spain, honey. I’m gonna find your mommy and I’m gonna bring her back home. I promise.

Victor: Grief can certainly tear you up inside, can’t it? And you contemplate doing things you never thought you would.

Devon: Well, yeah, you think that finally find the person you’re gonna spend the rest of your life with, and they’re snatched away from you with no warning at all. Feels impossible to go on.

Victor: I remember how difficult it was for you after hilary passed.

Devon: Yeah, I do, too, but I’ll tell you one thing, it doesn’t compare to being left with a baby to take care of, like abby.

Victor: Let’s just hope that ashley finds her quickly and brings her home.

Devon: And I know that she’s doing what she feels like she needs to do right now by trying to bring her husband back home, but she has a child who needs her more than anything. And to not how this is gonna play out, I’m really worried for him.

Victor: This is all very upsetting. Let’s go.

Lily: I cannot believe that you did this. We’re supposed to be partners, and you went behind my back.

Billy: I thought that you would be relieved. Honestly, lily, I can see what this is doing to you, okay? I was trying to do the right thing.

Lily: Right, by going to victor.

Billy: What I proposed to him would take the pressure off of you and our company.

Lily: How? Because he — he agreed or he gave you his word that he’s gonna stop legal action?

Billy: He said that he was gonna consider it, and i honestly feel like he was taking it seriously.

Lily: Right. Oh, my god, yes, because you’re right, he’s so trustworthy.

Billy: Yeah, what else do you want me to do? Look, I’m hoping that he sees me humbled, with my face in the dirt, and it’s too tempting for him to resist.

Lily: Billy, even if he agrees and you resign, it doesn’t change anything. He might not come after me personally, but he will do anything he can to use the situation to his advantage. We are vulnerable to attack right now. Adam and victor, they want to dismantle us and scoop up the pieces for themselves. That has not changed. The only thing that has is that you have now left me on my own to fend off the vultures by myself.

Next week on

“the young and the restless”…

Billy: I’m sorry, are you two here looking for an apology?

Ashland: No, we’re actually here to make you an offer.

Amanda: The jury is ready to give their verdict in sutton’s trial.

Phyllis: So you’re flying solo?

Gloria: Of course not. Nobody wants to be alone on thanksgiving. Why do you ask? Oh, phyllis, are you alone today?

Ashley: If she’s in spain, i promise you I will find her and I will bring her home. <

Transcript provided by Suzanne


 [ Screams ] You got this.

[ Straining ] Hey, you got this, ok? Before you know it, you’ll have a baby in your arms and we’ll be a family.

[ Groans, panting ] I like the sound of that. Me, too. Mm-hmm.

[ Groans, inhales sharply ]

[ Exhales sharply ] Dr. Navarro, I’ve been trying to track you down. Talk to me. It’s sasha gilmore. I’ve been keeping an eye on her vitals and the baby’s, but I’m worried something is seriously wrong.

[ Grunting ] Willow. Willow. Willow. Hey.

[ Panting ] Michael! Hi. I was just… working out. Yeah, you were. I just — I’ve never seen you hit the heavy bag before. Yeah, this was my…first time. I didn’t know what I was missing. Punching things can be fun. [ Grunts ] Brook lynn: And as my, um, due date got closer, the more unsure I got. And I knew I couldn’t back out of the deal, but I just — I couldn’t share the birth with valentin. It was just too intimate. I would be too vulnerable. So I told everyone I was going to brooklyn. My friend cece helped me cover, and I-I got a room in a hotel. In ithaca. Why a hotel and not a hospital? I couldn’t risk valentin being able to track me down, so I had the doula meet me in the hotel, and I ended up giving birth that night. Story doesn’t add up. What are you hiding, brook lynn? If it was me — if it was just me, fine. We could keep things the way they are, but there are two other people we have to think about… please, valentin — …charlotte and bailey. And for them, I need to know. Bailey’s isn’t mine, is she? This is so much more complicated than you think. The hell it is. You just need to look in my eyes and tell me that bailey is my daughter. I’m so sorry. I can’T. Brook lynn, it’s me. Call me back. I need you to tell me gladys hasn’t ruined everything.

[ Elevator bell dings ] Hey. What are you doing here? Well, ava tipped me off that sasha was in labor.

[ Sighs ] What is it? What’s wrong? No — is it the baby? I don’t know anything about sasha or the baby. Ok, then what is it? Me. And my plan to protect louise from peter. It’s falling apart. Carly. Don’t worry about it. It was an accidental meeting, nobody got hurt. Not tonight, but you got hurt. I did, too. Our whole family was hurt. Don’t you get that? Why are you defending nina? I’m not defending nina. I know people got hurt. I’m just preventing any more hurt that — now that it’s over. It’s not over, sonny, and it’s never gonna be over so long as there’s no consequences for what nina did. You get that right? Please help me understand here.

[ Water dripping ] At what point are you going to admit we’re hopelessly lost? At what point are you gonna shut your mouth? So that’s a “never”? I know what I’m doing. Britt: Why is there so much loose dirt down here? What’s going on? I’ll tell you what’s going on. Of course you will. This tunnel is dangerously unstable. Ok, we got a problem. Just one? Spinelli gave me the layout of the island, but it’s a satellite view and I know that the tunnels exist, but… but as far as which one is which… I have no idea where peter went.

They used this one. How do you know? Look, you may be an expert hitman, but I got a little experience tracking people. The department of the navy made sure of that. My contribution to this adventure. Alright, lead the way. Obrecht: One false move or a particularly loud noise? We’ll all be buried alive. Are your dire warnings intended to discourage me, liesl? They’re intended to save our lives. Listen to her, peter. You may hate my mother, but you know she’s smart. Thank you, tochter. Smart. She’s determined to stop me. She’ll tell any lie to slow us down. She’s not lying about the loose dirt. Come on. Think about it. This island belongs to the cassadines. So? So not well known for planning. They want a tunnel, they dig a tunnel. They don’t — they don’t think about shoring it up or maintaining it, for that matter. The cassadines were fleeing the russian revolution. This tunnel could be more than 100 years old. I know you’re arrogant, but even you can’t argue with geology or gravity. We have to leave. Chase: Yeah. Hey. Y-yeah, no, I-I know I’m still on desk duty, but I was hoping you could, uh, do me a solid and look something up for me. Awesome. Uh, I need the easypass records brook lynn quartermaine’s vehicle. The date is may 27th of this year. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I’ll hold. I’m so sorry. I lied to you. No. No, I need to hear you say the words. Bailey isn’t your daughter. I never meant for this to go so long. For months and months and months, you have watched me pour my heart into that little girl! I swear, valentin, I thought it would be over before you fell in love with her. Before —

[Crying] I was in love with her the moment I knew she existed. That child is everything to me. And now gladys is gonna open her big mouth and let valentin know that bailey is not really his.

[ Sighs ] I could have told you using kip wouldn’t end well. A little too late. I’m sorry. I’m so sorry. Ok, maybe there’s no reason to totally panic yet, right? I mean, gladys doesn’t know everything. She doesn’t know that bailey is really louise. Yeah, that’s right. The crucial information is contained. Ok, so this could be a good thing, right? I mean, you were the one that tried to convince me to pull valentin in on the secret. You said he could actually be an ally. I did, but maxie — I know it’s going to be a huge blow, finding out that bailey is not really his. Monumental. But maybe after he processes it a-and realizes that brook lynn and i only did this to protect louise from peter, he’ll — he’ll want to help me. He’ll understand. Wouldn’t that be great? That would be great, but I’m afraid it’s highly unlikely. There isn’t anything to understand, carly. We — there’s been so much pain in the last year with our family as it is. I know, but the pain isn’t gonna go away as long as nina has a relationship with wiley. And clearly, she’s gonna stake her claim as his grandmother. So accidental or not, this just proves that michael was right to push to have the charges against nina in pennsylvania. Yeah, but if he would asked me, I would have said to him, he’s just making things more complicated. Ok, um… I don’t get it. This isn’t you. The one thing we have always agreed on is that if someone comes at us, we’re gonna come back twice as hard to make sure nobody comes at us ever again. And I’m not talking about sending a message here. I’m talking about justice, sonny. Why would you deny yourself or your family that kind of justice after what nina did to you? Because if we destroy nina… I would be… denying who I’ve become.

[ Breathing shakily ] There you go. Just breathe.

[ Whimpers ] Breathe. You’re doing great, babe. There you go. Hello, everyone. Just breathe. I hear things are progressing in here? Yeah, it looks like it. Ugh, feels like it, too.

[ Inhales sharply ]

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Whimpers ]

[ Inhales sharply ]

[ Groans ] Ok. I’d like to run some tests and do a quick ultrasound to see how things are going. Tests? Is everything ok? That’s what we want to confirm. W-whatever you think is best. Great. You’ll get her prepped? Elizabeth: Yes. It’s ok.

[ Groans ]

[ Whimpers ]

Hold up. Wait, wait. Hold up. They s topped hereand may have, uh — looks like they stood around for a little bit and then kept going. And there is another man, because there’s extra boot prints. Peter picked up a guard to help him. Well, we got another problem. This tunnel is in a really bad shape. Yeah, I noticed. Loud noises like, say, gunfire is gonna up the chances of a total collapse. So we have to take peter and the guard hand-to-hand. Ok, what if — what if it’s not hand-to-hand? Well, every gunshot is just gonna… make this place more unstable. So, uh, what brought on the sudden urge to go to town on the heavy bag like that? I thought you were taking wiley to the fall fair in rice plaza. I did take him. That’s what brought on this sudden desire for a workout. Ok?

[ Sighs ] Nina was there. Did she approach you? Wiley made the first move. He saw her, he wanted to go to her, and… I let him. Go ahead. Tell me how much you hate that. Well, I hate the idea of nina being anywhere near our son, but, uh… I wasn’t there, so… thank you. But I-I — I tried to keep it low key. Wiley and I had a hot chocolate with nina, then I sent him off to be with cindy. Cindy — he knows her from day care at the hospital. And when nina and i were alone, I told her that…

[ Sighs ] I hate what she did, and I don’t think she should see wiley for the time being, but that I wasn’t going to confuse wiley by dragging him away from her — you know, punish him for her bad choices. And how’d — how did she take that?

[ Sighs ] She was… appropriately remorseful. Now, at the same time, I don’t think nina even begins to grasp just how selfish and horrible she was or how much damage she’s done.

[ Sighs ] Anyway, cindy brought wiley back. All I wanted to do was take him home, and just as we were saying our goodbyes, your mom showed up and…

[Inhales deeply ] Jumped to the wrong conclusion. How wrong? Carly was gonna call the cops on nina for stalking wiley. Well, go mom. Michael! They — look — ok, I-I know, I know, it would have just made a bad situation even worse. It’s just that — I mean, I could — I could still enjoy the fantasy, can’t I? Sure. Yeah, you can enjoy it. You weren’t the one standing in the middle of rice plaza trying to stop your mom from having nina dragged away in handcuffs in front of wiley. Ugh! I need more time on the heavy bag. No, actually, uh… I have a better idea.

[ Monitor beeping ] Dr. Navarro: Ok. Looks like it’s time to get moving. Have the or prepped right away. Got it. Or?! What’s going on? Is something wrong with the baby? Sasha, we need to prep you for an emergency c-section. What?! No, no, I’m fine to continue to labor, I —

[ Yells ] I know this wasn’t your plan, and under normal circumstances, we’d do everything we could to avoid surgery, but you’re suffering from a placental abruption and the baby needs to come out now. Ms. Spencer! Oh. It’s good to see you again. Thank you. Uh, y-you know, forgive me for making a beeline for the coffee, but I’m headed to rice plaza and I just came off a double shift at gh. Where — oh, and everyone was raving about your wife, by the way. I think you mean my ex-wife.

[ Gasps ] Oh! And that’s why I need caffeine. I am so sorry. Don’t be.

[ Sighs ] Clearly, my mind isn’t as sharp after a long day. No, it’s ok. Really. Thank you. You know, just for the record, I love the way willow makes michael happy, but I hate the way you got hurt in the process. You’re a good man, detective chase. And you have been a particularly good friend to maxie and lulu. I hope that coffee works its magic. Me, too.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Can I get a large coffee to go? Beechers corners? What was she doing there? Oh! Hey, I don’t know who you’re referring to, but beechers corners happens to be a lovely place. You’ve been? Yeah, right before memorial day. I know you’re upset. You have every right to be. Don’t! Don’t tell me how I can feel. But you have to understand, this was never my intention. I don’t care about your intentions. This is where we are now. When I think about the sleepless nights, the stories, the shared moments — that was all real. How? How is it real?! Because it happened. You’re not who I thought you were. I don’t even know what you are. You watched as I bonded with this child. My 12-year-old daughter thinks she has a sister, and for what?! Some stock! The brook lynn I thought I knew would never have done that. She didn’T.

I’m not tryingto burst your bubble. You were the one who advocated for me to tell valentin the truth. I did. I did. But if you told him back then, months ago, when I told you that, then I am sure valentin would have been supportive. Not only would he have kept that secret, but he would have made sure that it was airtight. But maxie! You and brook lynn made valentin fall in love with that baby.

[ Telephones ringing in distance ]

[ Sighs ] What? Just like I made sonny fall in love with me. Ok. Not ideal or advised, but when it comes to the truth, isn’t it, like, better late than never? That’s what people say, right? Tell the truth. But I learned the hard way, they’re only talking about the immediate truth. Hidden truths become secret, and those only leave pain and chaos in their wake.

[ Sighs ] I want to understand what’s going on with you, but you’re gonna have to walk me through it. Ok, how can nina facing justice for what she did to our family be denying who you’ve become?

[ Sighs ] Carly… I was gone for 9 months. I know. And… [ Sighs ] You know, at that time, I was — I was living another life. We both were. And I can’t just believe that it — it’s just gonna go back to normal and nothing, you know, has changed. I —

[ Sighs ] It’s hard for me, you know what I mean? Yes, but things — things have gone back to normal. We are the same people that we were. I mean, we’re the same couple. I — I — I — for the better part of the year, I was — I was another person. Ok? And that — that time doesn’t just vanish from my mind. In nixon falls, I didn’t know about sonny corinthos, but here I know that I was “mike,” and he’s still part of me. And for 9 months, what kept me alive, centered, and safe was the friendships that I had with… with lenny, phyllis, and nina. And I just can’t change the fact that… for just, you know — up until a couple of weeks ago, nina was…

[Voice breaking] T-the one friend that I had in the whole world. You spent time in beechers corners last may. Was it a vacation? N– no — uh, well —

[ Sighs ] You know, I suppose there’s no reason to be keeping it a secret at this point. I was supposed to meet maxie there. Like a final hurrah before the baby was born? No, not exactly. Um… maxie had figured out the truth about peter, but she knew if she tried to end the relationship, there would be… issues. That’s putting it mildly. Yeah. So she asked me there in a professional capacity. As a nurse? Yeah. The plan was for me to deliver maxie’s baby in secret. You know, this took me by surprise, too. Don’t you compare our experiences. They are nothing alike. I know! I’m just — I’m trying to explain myself. Can I do that? Please? It started out with like, “oops, I’m pregnant, and valentin thinks he’s the father.” You led me to believe I was the father. So I did something I’m not proud of. Ok? I used the situation to my advantage so that I could get

elq back. But I was clueless. I had no idea how you’d be as a father, I — I had no idea how you’d be as a partner. I thought that you’d just give me child support and leave. Which, by the way, if you’d accepted, would have been fraud. But go ahead. Do you remember moving in? Do I remember moving in to the quartermaine mansion?! I mean me. How opposed to it I was. Why do you think that is? What started out as a stupid means to an end turned into you and your daughter moving into my home

[Crying] With my family — our family, the four of us, and I was like, “what am I doing?” But it was just — it was too late. And then gladys found out the truth and she started blackmailing me, and I-I had to let her. I had no choice. I never intended to hurt you. Congratulations. This is new. I don’t suppose you know where we are. Oh, for the millionth time, stop talking! Or I will kill one of you! Ok, on that note, will you please stop antagonizing him? I’m not antagonizing him. I’m telling him the truth. This whole place could come crumbling down at any time, and this dummkopf is leading us nowhere. Britta was right. We must turn back. No! We’re not going back. We’re getting the hell out of here. We’re going to the harbor and we’re getting on a boat. And then we’re going to the rendezvous point, where drew will be bringing maxie to me and I will be getting everything I want! Drew: Yeah, that is not gonna happen. What is placental — abruption. It means the placenta is separating from the uterus. Sasha: When?! I’m guessing right before your water broke. Wait, wait, wait! The — the placenta is how the baby eats and gets oxygen. Yes, that’s why we need to do a c-section. Is — is our son ok? We’re doing everything in our power to make sure of that. We can give you an epidural, but you will be conscious. Just take care of the baby. The plan is to take care of both of you.

[ Sighs ] Which or? Elizabeth: Four. Let’s go. You made a real point about saying “both of you.” Is sasha in danger, too?

Doctor, hey, level with me. Is sasha’s life at risk, too? It’s too early to say, but obstetrical hemorrhage is a very real complication from placental abruption, which is why we can’t waste any time. Well, maybe it would help if I went with you. As in “valentin might go easier on me”? Well, he won’t kill you ’cause there’s a witness.

[ Chuckles ] It’s possible.

[ Sasha groaning, stretcher rolling ] Brando, hey. What’s wrong? Is sasha ok? No. Sasha could lose the baby, and I could lose them both. What the hell are you doing here? I’m taking britt and her mom off this island, and if I kill you in the process, that — that’s just a bonus.

[ Gunshot ]

[ Screaming ]

[ Gunfire ] How you wanna handle this guy? Whatever peter’s paying you, is it worth dying for him? I don’t think so. Go, get out! You guys ok? We are now.

[ Clears throat ] That was my perfectly normal response to the fact that you’re not dead. Where — where’s peter? I hate being stuck in the middle. It’d be so much easier if nina just moved far away, like new zealand or… at least california. Prison works. Even if nina goes to prison, she will still have legal rights as wiley’s grandmother. Well, it’d be hard to exercise those rights if she’s in prison. Uh, nina has money and lawyers, and if she lands in prison, she will have nothing but time. Think about it, michael. Do you really want to take wiley to go see nina in some prison visiting room? No, of course not.

[ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] The fact is, nina is wiley’s grandmother, and she will always have those ties to him unless she chooses to sever those ties. And an all-out visitation war over wiley can only hurt him. So for his sake, I just want to find a way for all of us to coexist. Is that so impossible to understand? Hey, no, I — I understand. I just — I don’t agree.

[ Sighs ] Maxie didn’t want to have her baby in the hospital? Well, it wasn’t so much about the venue. Because of peter. Yeah, well, peter was watching her like a hawk at the time. My guess is she wanted to keep her options open. Your guess? Look, all maxie told me was she was determined not to let peter raise her baby. So whether that meant going on the run or putting louise up for adoption… best laid plans, right? I mean, all that strategizing to try and keep peter away from her baby and now maxie has no idea where she is. It’s good to see you. I gotta go.

[ Crying ] I’m just — I’m devastated. I just don’t know how else to put it. I’m sorry. Because I love her so completely, and if I’m not her father,

[Sobs] What do I do with that?! Oh, god. I wanted to watch her grow up so bad! Well, you could still do that. How?! As what?! I’m not her father! I don’t know how I’m gonna tell charlotte. We can do it together. No! I don’t want you anywhere near my daughter. Valentin — charlotte and i will mourn what you have stolen from us, and then, by god, I will mourn you, too.

[ Sighs ]

Ok, I… knew that nina was a presence in nixon falls, for months. And, of course, that…

[ Sighs ] …You saw her. But this is the first I’m hearing that… you consider nina your friend. Nina is — no, no, no. Nina is not my friend. I didn’t say that. She’s like — you — look, I — when I didn’t know who she was or what she did to me or my family when I was mike… listen — bobbie: I’m sorry I’m late. I ran into — oh. Am I interrupting? No, that’s alright. I know that you guys have plans, right? Yeah. Um… yeah. I’ll let you guys… I’ll see you later, ok? Alright. Hey. Hey. Is everything ok? I don’t know. So, nina is — is counting on you to coexist. Counting on you to put all of her mistakes in the past. That way, when anybody, you know, approaches her — holds her accountable, like my mom o-or me, you know, we’re — we’re — we’re unreasonable, right? W-we’re vindictive. And then just like that, she flips the script. She flips the script and then she goes from being a-a borderline psycho, liar — someone w-who kept my dad a virtual prisoner for 9 months to —

[ Both sigh ] You know, I-I don’t — I don’t — I don’t want to go down — I don’t wanna go down this rabbit hole. I-I don’t — [ Sighs ] I don’t wanna waste this moment with you. You are beautiful a-and sweaty

[ Laughs ] And — and — and throwing punches. I-I don’t wanna waste it on — on anyone, least of all nina reeves. Who? Exactly. I don’t wanna — I don’t wanna… think so much about the things that I hate that I-I miss —

[ Sighs ] I miss what I love. And what I love is standing in front of me. I’m trying to act brave for sasha, but I am terrified. Of course you are. What if something happens? What if they can’t get to him in time? What if something — what if she doesn’t — no, stop. You cannot think like that. Maxie’s right. Sasha is incredibly resilient. And so are you. You know what that means? Your baby is a badass, too. Did you find baby names yet? Well, you know what? Badass corbin has a really nice ring to it. Um, I-I guess I should, uh, head to the or, because they said I could be there for surgery. Hey, can I walk with you? I’ve had an emergency c-section, so maybe I can tell you what to expect. Yeah, I’d appreciate that. Please keep me updated, ok? And… tell sasha I love her.

[ Water running ]

[ Monitor beeping ]

[ Thud ]

[ Paper crinkles ] I admired you. I felt lucky — like we were kindred spirits, like we understood one another. And you were gracious to charlotte. I thought you were a good influence to her, but I was wrong. It was all a lie. You’re smoke and you’re mirrors, that’s all you are. You’re just smoke and mirrors. You saw the damage you were doing and you just stood by and did nothing. You just let it roll and go on and on and on — that’s not what happened! Yeah, it is. There’s a huge piece of this that you don’t understand. That schwein peter must have run away during all the commotion. Yeah, we know he’s not headed toward the house. Peter doesn’t know where he’s headed. He was hopelessly lost. Well, which isn’t so surprising. This place is a maze. How did you find us? Drew was able to track you. Of course. Congratulations on overcoming the conditioning. Nah, credit goes to jason. No, actually. Credit goes to britt. She found a way to give me the card from peter, and… I know. I was just trying to be inclusive. Drew, can you pick up peter’s trail? We need to find him. Yeah. Can you guys find your way back? You all may not know this, but one of my minor phds was in geology. Way to slip that in, mother. These tunnels are on the brink of collapse. Yeah, and that gunfire did not help the situation, it made it exponentially worse. If we want to get out alive, we need to go now. Ok, let’s go. Let’s go, come on. Get down!

[ Gunfire ] Drew: Down, down down! Now!

So you can bounce this has nothing to do with jason. O pry… please, mom, I need you to pry.

[ Sighs ] Honey? Yeah? I’m not trying to pry… please, mom, I need you to pry. I am concerned. Things seem so tense between you and sonny. Is it so awkward because of what happened between you and jason? No, no. We…talked about that. We’re all on the same page. This has nothing to do with jason. Well, that is a relief. ‘Cause take it from me, there’s nothing worse than feeling like there’s a third person in your marriage. We are so lucky to have each other. And wiley. We should just focus on that, and just be here now, and not worry about everything else. Or at least until the next time nina comes calling? Ugh! What if she shows up on thanksgiving? Just drops by to give something to wiley?

[ Sighs ] Well, what if — what if wiley’s not home? I me, what if — what if he’s in new york city with us. We’re going to new york city? We could. You ever been to the thanksgiving day parade? Not in person. Well, this could be the year, yeah? You, me, and wiley, we can — we can go to the parade, rockefeller center, and central park. We could go see a show. Yeah, we could see a show. Any — any show that you want. Your pick. Are we really doing this? Yeah, let’s — let’s just get away from this — this miserable situation, you know, and just… have an amazing thanksgiving weekend. You, me, and wiley. All you gotta do is say yes. Yes. Yeah?

[ Giggles ] Hey, johnny. I think I’ll mix it up today, have a vodka soda with lemon. You got it. Nina: You are gonna be a fantastic mother. I hope so. I know so.

[ Laughs ] Well, if that is true, then it is in large part because of you. It may not have been real… but you showed me what it looked like to be a kind and loving mother. And even after you knew what I had done, when you should have despised me, you still showed me compassion. Hey, uh, is phyllis around? She stepped out, but she should be back soon. Oh, ok. Thanks.

[ Monitor beeping ] Brando! Hey, I’m right here. How you feeling?

[ Groans ] Numb. You know, you’re the bravest person I’ve ever met.

[ Laughs weakly ] This is it. What does that mean? It’s time for your baby to be born. Sasha, here we go. You may feel some pressure. You got this.

[ Laughs ] I’m not doing anything. You know what I mean.

[ Laughs ] He’s here! Oh, my god! That’s our — that’s our son! That’s our son. Can I hold him? What’s happening? Hey, what’s wrong with our baby? What’s wrong with our baby?!

[ Breathing heavily ]

[ Crying ] Am I a screw-up?

[ Crying ] Yeah. Am I short-sighted and selfish? 100%. But there’s a legitimate reason why I couldn’t tell you the truth.

[ Knock on door, door opens ] Well, now, detective chase, just in time. What for? The latest bombshell. It turns out brook lynn’s been lying to me. I’m not bailey’s father after all. Yes, I’m aware. You told him? No, never. I-I didn’t tell anyone. I know you’re not bailey’s father… because I am.

[ Gunfire ] Stop shooting or this place will cave in! Drew, get ’em out of here, now! Go! We gotta go now! No! I’m not leaving jason! Please!

[ Shouts ]

[ Rumbling ] Jason! Jason!

Days of Our Lives Transcript

Days of Our Lives logo

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Demon marlena: You little go-getter, you! Do you believe that you actually picked the lock?

Susan: John black did an excellent job at coaching me. And, you know, I am very good with my hands. If you would have gotten here a little bit later, you know, we would have been out of here, no time.

Demon marlena: Mm-hmm. Hmm. That right, john? You thought the two of you could outwit me?

Susan: Little old mean so-and-so! Look, look.

[Susan hissing]

[Susan screaming]

Demon marlena: [Chuckles]

Roman: Looks like you could use it.

Abe: Thank you. You know, I had thought that I would be… sipping champagne with my new bride right about now. So much for the best laid plans, huh?

Roman: Yeah. Yeah.

Theo: The look on my dad’s face, how could paulina lie to him like that? And–and chanel? Hell of a time to come out with the truth.

Eli: I’m with you on that.

Theo: And now lani going to see paulina. You think that’s a good idea?

Eli: I sure as hell hope so.

Paulina: I–I was just coming to look for you, sweetheart. There’s so much I need to explain–

[Tense music]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Paulina: I vowed a long time ago that I was never ever gonna let anyone put a hand on me again. But after what I did to you, I suppose I deserved that.

Lani: Damn right you did! Do you have any idea how much damage you have caused? How you hurt and humiliated me?

Paulina: Yeah–

Lani: And not just me, so many other people!

Paulina: I have an idea.

Lani: I never thought I could be more angry with you than I was that day when we found out your real plans for this place. But I got to give you credit. You’ve really outdone yourself. In one fell swoop, you took away my brother, my mother, huh? And my father.

Paulina: Lani, I’m sorry.

Lani: So who is my father anyway, huh?

[Eerie music]

Demon marlena: Well, she’s full of surprises, isn’t she?

John: Aren’t you going after her?

Demon marlena: In these heels?

[Laughs] I always like to give people a little bit of hope… before I crush it.

[Eerie music]


Susan: Help! Help! Help! Elvis! Johnny! Where is everybody? Where are you? Come on, elvis! Johnny? Oh, come on, please, someone, help me!

Johnny: What was that? Why give your family just ordinary eggs

Johnny: Hello! Anybody there? That’s weird. Could have sworn somebody just called my name.

Demon marlena: Bad, bad, bad little kitty. What am I gonna do with you? She got all the way to the mansion. Quite the little sprinter. If I hadn’t stopped her, she would’ve gotten to your grandson.

[Banging at door]

Johnny: Hey, gorgeous. Hey, were you just calling my name, uh, before you knocked?

Chanel: No. Why?

Johnny: Never mind. I’m just happy you’re here. I figured since you texted that you were going to your mom’s wedding, that I wouldn’t see you. Must be my lucky day.

Chanel: [Sighs] Not so lucky.

Johnny: Well, how was the wedding? Is it over already?

Chanel: Oh, it’s over, all right. And it was a total disaster. Because of me.

[Dramatic music]

Theo: Still sound asleep.

Eli: We’d have heard if they weren’T. Thanks for checking on them.

Theo: Kind of wish I was like one of those little ones, sleeping through this nightmare. Paulina’s their grandmother, which means that I’m not their uncle.

Eli: Technically, that’s true.

Theo: Eli, I totally get it if you want to pick a different godfather for jules.

Eli: What? Why would you say that?

Theo: Maybe you want someone who’s related to them.

Eli: Theo, you’re the best damn godfather my daughter will ever have. Okay? And nothing’s gonna change that. Blood or no blood.

[Dramatic music]

Roman: Look, you don’t have to talk about this if you don’t want to, but I just got to say kate and i are both a little confused. Is what chanel said at the church true? Paulina is lani’s mother, not tamara?

Abe: That is correct. And I am not lani’s father.

Roman: How is that possible?

Abe: It is a long story.

Paulina: Your dad, ray, he was so dangerous. That’s why I was so determined to protect you from him, determined that he didn’t even know you existed. So the plan was for my mama to keep me hidden from him until I gave birth. And–and tammy, she would raise you as her child.

Lani: So she agreed to the lie?

Paulina: Well, it wasn’t that much of a lie. Tammy, she loved you as if she had given birth to you herself. She just–she just had one condition she just insisted upon.

Lani: Which was?

Paulina: After she made the commitment, you were to be her daughter, her daughter alone. I had to promise that you would never know the truth.

Lani: And that’s one promise you actually kept. Want your clothes to smell freshly washed

John: So, honey, you said you were off to corrupt souls and destroy lives, tell me that didn’t happen.

Demon marlena: I don’t like to brag, but it went even better than I had hoped. The destruction of abe’s wedding. But enough about me, we have some unfinished business here.

John: Eh, not in the mood.

Demon marlena: I’m not even sure that matters. You know me well enough to know that I never leave a job half done. There’s no sense in you resisting, john. I will have your soul. And this part should be pretty entertaining. Let me just slip into something a little more comfortable.

[Eerie music]

Johnny: Here you go.

Chanel: Thank you.

Johnny: It can’t be that bad.

Chanel: It’s worse.

Johnny: Okay. Tell me about it.

Chanel: Okay. You–you remember how you left me with your grandmother this morning?

Johnny: Yeah. Of course I do.

Chanel: Well, she and i were talking about how my mom had chosen lani to be her matron of honor. And dr. Evans told me that she knew why and why my mom lied about it. Especially that.

Johnny: What do you mean?

Chanel: It was because of a secret she’s been carrying around for years. Johnny, lani is my mom’s daughter too.

[Dramatic music]

Theo: It’s funny. When I found out that I had a sister, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it. Brandon wasn’t around, so I pretty much always had dad to myself growing up.

Eli: You didn’t want to share, huh?

Theo: Pretty much acted like a spoiled brat.

Eli: So what made you come around?

Theo: Lani did. I was being bullied in school, the autism. And she was not about to let that continue. I mean, she was fierce.

Eli: That’s my wife.

Theo: Hmm. She told me that the other kids were the problem, not me. She gave me confidence, helped me to believe in myself. And she stood up for me like–

Eli: Like a big sister.

Paulina: I was so desperate, I agreed to tammy’s terms. And I was so sure that I made the right decision, but then I went into labor and–

Lani: What? Go on.

Paulina: I gave birth to you in mama’s home because a hospital was too risky. The same midwife that delivered tammy and me delivered you right on mama’s bed. She put you in my arms, and I just looked– I looked into your beautiful eyes and… I just realized I couldn’t let you go. You were my baby girl. I just couldn’t give you up. Not even to my sister. I told my mama I wasn’t going through with it.

Lani: But you did.

Paulina: I did.

Lani: Why?

Paulina: Big mama. Big mama, she made me realize that the best way I could be a mother to you was to keep you safe from ray. So I agreed to the plan. But not–not before I convinced that midwife to cut a lock of your hair for me. Lord knows we didn’t– we didn’t cut a child’s hair before their first birthday, but she looked at me, she saw my breaking heart and she agreed. Just that sweet, sweet lock, just kept carrying it around with me, having that tiny part of you with me, that gave me the strength to just put you in tammy’s arms and tell you that she was your mama. Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Roman: Wow. That is quite a tale, abraham.

Abe: If only that’s all it was.

Roman: Yeah. Giving lani up like that had to be really painful for paulina.

Abe: Defending her?

Roman: No. No, not at all. I’m just saying that it sounds like she was really caught in a–in a really terrible situation.

Abe: She was. And I–I feel for her. Being in an abusive relationship and having to give up your child. And for her to come to town after all these years and build a relationship with lani, build a relationship with me, knowing this secret could change all of our lives.

Roman: I do wonder why she didn’t just stay away, leave well enough alone.

Abe: I don’t know. I don’t know. But the kicker is that I was dumb enough to trust her. Again. And after what happened with the horton town square, I knew exactly the kind of lies that paulina was capable of. And I–I still–still gave her another chance. Just exactly how stupid could I be.

Roman: Abe, you weren’t stupid. You were in love. You loved paulina. She loved you.

Abe: Then why didn’t she tell me the truth?

Paulina: As hard as it was to give you up, I knew I was doing the right thing. Tamara, she could give you what I couldn’t, a stable home and a mother who loved you. But as for me, I vowed that I would never be in this position again. Mmm. So despite the fact that I was a young, single black woman with hardly any resources, I started building my business. I made connections. I learned the ins and outs of real estate. I made sure I did whatever I had to do to make sure that I never would depend on a man or anybody else for that matter. But the one thing, the one thing that I always wanted, the thing that I dreamt about more nights than I can count was to be a mama to you, the one who combed your hair, who heard your prayers, who told you stories and rocked you to sleep.

Lani: I had a mother for that.

Paulina: Of course. Well, of course, you did. Well, tammy, she loved you with everything she had.

[Lani sniffles] That’s why she was so protective of you. And I respected that. I did. But what pulled me to you was I just wanted to be more than your crazy aunt paulina. I wanted us to spend time together, just–just the two of us, where we could–so I could just be a mama to you.

Lani: Hmm. Like when you promised me that trip when I was eight to paris and then you never showed up.

Paulina: Yeah. Oh, boy. When mama and tammy found out about that, boy, I caught hell. They wouldn’t even let me near you so I could talk to you and let you down gently.

Lani: So this is their fault?

Paulina: No. No, no. It’s not their fault. It’s my fault for wanting something that I just could not have, for letting down and breaking my little daughter’s heart.

Johnny: Lani is your sister? And my grandmother told you that? I mean, how–how does she even know something like that?

Chanel: My mom told her.

Johnny: Like as her shrink? What about the whole doctor-patient confidentiality thing?

Chanel: Well, she did say she that could lose her license if anyone found out that she told me, but she saw how upset I was and she–she wanted to help me understand what was going on.

Johnny: But still, I mean, even if it was to help you, breaking confidentiality like that, that doesn’t sound like my grandmother.

[Eerie music]

Marlena: John? John!

Evil kristen: Hi! Aw! So you ready to pick up where we left off? On the outside, I looked fine.

Roman: You know what? Maybe–maybe paulina didn’t tell you the truth because she knew what it would cost you and lani. Maybe she was just trying to protect you.

Abe: Well, that’s exactly what she said. It’s a nice way to make herself the hero of the story.

Roman: I’m so sorry, abe.

Abe: She watched us, lani, theo, me. She watched us celebrate and support each other, love each other, and she did the one thing that she promised me that she would never do, she lied to me about the most important thing in my life, my family. Now how am I supposed to get past that?

Lani: So all the gifts, the pony, were they because you gave me up? What, you were trying to atone?

Paulina: That was just my way of trying to express my love for you. And yes, yes, trying to make up for that terrible choice I made for giving you up.

Lani: And the kids’ college education, was that just another “make-up” gift?

Paulina: Well, when I heard that my baby was having twin babies, well, I tried to stay away but I couldn’T. I just thought that I could be there for them and hold them like I couldn’t hold you and be a part of their lives like I couldn’t be a part of yours.

Lani: Right, so you wanted to be a part of my life, a part of my kids’ lives without ever considering telling us who you really were, that you were my mother, their grandmother! My god! How could you– how could you not think that we needed to know something so important, so life changing? How could you think that it was just okay for you to keep this big lie going? Oh, you know why? I know why. It’s because what you want was always more important than the truth.

Chanel: I’m just glad someone cared enough to tell me the truth. My mom sure as hell doesn’T.

Johnny: Is that why you decided to go to the wedding? To confront her?

Chanel: Not at all. Dr. Evans told me I couldn’t tell anyone.

Johnny: Because she’d get in trouble?

Chanel: Yeah. I didn’t even want to go to the wedding, I was so upset. But she told me that I had to do the right thing. I had to show up for my mom.

Johnny: So you went to the wedding, you weren’t gonna say anything, but then you– you did?

Chanel: You know that part in the ceremony where they ask if anyone knows why the couple shouldn’t get married?

Johnny: Yeah.

Chanel: Well, when that moment came, I just felt compelled to say something.

Johnny: “Compelled”?

Chanel: I looked up at dr. Evans and she was looking back at me. And it was like it was just the two of us in the room and she was looking at me like she could see into my soul. And it was like she was urging me to tell the truth.

Johnny: That’s weird.

Chanel: What’s even weirder was that she was the one that told me I had to keep it a secret.

Johnny: So was she upset that you told everyone or what?

Chanel: She didn’t seem upset at all. And I was careful not to let on that she was the one who told me because I didn’t want her to lose her license to practice medicine. I didn’t want to wreck her life. I just wrecked everyone else’S.

Johnny: Nah, come here. Come here.

Marlena: [Strains] I’ve got to get out of here. There’s got to be a way.

[Groans] Oh. My phone! My phone.


[Dramatic music]

Evil kristen: Do you remember where we left off yesterday?

John: Um. No.

Evil kristen: Well, it was right about here. Oh, don’t be like that. We connected yesterday. I know we did. We talked about how we met, john, how I saved you and then you saved me. It was inevitable that we would fall so deeply in love with each other.

John: Oh, just stop it.

Evil kristen: Why would I want to stop? I’m just getting to the good part. We ended up at the horton cabin, you and me in our own little world. We made love for the very first time.

[Eerie music]

That night was incredible, wasn’t it? It was you and me and the storm. It was so passionate. It was so magical. You do remember, don’t you? Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Roman: Listen, abe, I’m really sorry that you are not lani’s biological father or those babies’ grandfather. But come on, man, you got to know, that doesn’t change anything. Yes, paulina lied about how you’re related. But the way you feel about them, how much you love them, that’s real.

[Sighs] I just hate to see you in such pain. Is there anything I can do?

Abe: You’ve listened. And I thank you for that.

Roman: Can I get you another beer? Call someone?

Abe: No, no. Thank you. I– I think I’d just like to be alone.

Roman: Understood. All right. Holler if you need me.

Abe: [Sighs]

Theo: Dad has always been this rock for everyone. The strongest, the wisest, bravest. And his rock has always been family. And paulina has just blown that all to hell. He may have survived that bullet wound a few weeks ago, but this will break his heart. I should find him, let him know that I’m there for him, we all are.

Eli: What was I saying earlier about jules not being able to have a better godfather than you? This is why, because of the way you take care of your family.

Theo: You’ll let me know how lani’s doing?

Eli: I will.

[Dramatic music]

Paulina: Lani, I know–I know it seems like the only reason I kept this from you was because I was trying to protect myself from the consequences of my actions, but believe me, ever since I came to town, I’ve wanted to tell you I was your mama.

Lani: And something always stopped you. How convenient.

Paulina: No, no. No, it wasn’t like that. See, when I wanted to tell you, my mother, she swooped into town and shut me down. And then when I was about to tell you everything, then your father, he got shot–

Lani: He’s not my father.

Paulina: Abe is not your biological father. But he’s your daddy in every other way. I saw your grief that night and how worried you were that you might lose him. And I just couldn’t bring myself to add to your pain.

Lani: That’s when you lied that what you wanted to talk about was me being your matron of honor.

Paulina: Yes.

Lani: And did you think about what it would do to chanel, how much it would hurt her?

Paulina: Well, hurting my baby girl, that was the last thing I wanted to do. But in that moment, I was thinking of my other girl. And then I realized, well, I couldn’t just destroy your relationship with your father and your brother.

Lani: You destroyed it anyway.

Paulina: There are no words to say how sorry I am, if I could just do it all over again, if I could just be stronger, be wiser. But honey, I was convinced that telling you this lie all these years that I was being the best mama I could be. And that’s all I ever wanted was just to be a mother to you.

Lani: You are not my mother. And you never will be.

[Dramatic music]

Johnny: All you did was tell the truth, okay? You can’t control how other people are gonna respond to that. So you can’t let it get you down.

Chanel: It’s kind of hard not to.

Johnny: Well, I think that you are incredibly brave.

Chanel: You’re just saying that to make me feel better.

Johnny: No, I’m saying that ’cause it’s true.

Chanel: No one has ever called me brave before.

Johnny: What about perfect?

Chanel: Oh, hell no.

[Both laugh]

Johnny: Well, then clearly nobody knows you as well as I do.

Chanel: You still like me?

Johnny: Chanel, I’m crazy about you, the way you work so hard, how you always choose to do the right thing, how you can look at me, and it’s like the only thing in the world I give a damn about is making you happy.

[Dramatic music]

Chanel: Let’s go upstairs.

Johnny: You sure?

Chanel: I’m sure.

Johnny: Okay.

Evil kristen: You remember that first perfect night, don’t you? And then the next morning we woke up, the storm had passed. It was a gorgeous day. I told you that I had that fantasy of us taking a shower together. You made it come true. And then you know what you did, you made breakfast for me, you big softy.

[Eerie music]

And it was so sad, our perfect time in eden had to come to an end. But despite everything that happened, you still loved me. You still wanted me. Admit it. You still do.

[Tense music]

Marlena: Ahh, yes.

[Straining and panting] Oh, yes. No signal? Please, god. Please, please.

[Phone rings] My nunormal?

[Romantic music]

[Somber music]

>>Lani: [Sighs]


Evil kristen: As upset as you were to find out that I was stefano’s daughter, you couldn’t walk away ’cause you knew my heart and my soul and my body. You were mine. I was yours. And I remember every single time that we made love. I know you do too.

[Eerie music]

Wouldn’t you love to feel that alive again?

I mean, how long has it been since you’ve given into that kind of passion, since you’ve let yourself lose control, forgot about everyone and everything? What do you say, john? Why don’t you take me right here, right now, while all my dead relatives watch?

[Phone ringing]

Marlena: Unknown number? Hello?

Sami: Mom? Thank god you picked up!

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Finn: You– you guys know who my biological father is?

Li: We do.

Steffy: How? Did you get it out of sheila? Because then she lied to finn. She told him she didn’t know.

Li: Oh, she definitely knew. All these years.

Finn: Wow, okay. Okay. So I’m finally going to get a name, maybe– maybe pictures? Did she– did she give you that?

Li: We can do better than a picture. Right, jack?

Finn: Well, who is it? Please dad, tell me who it is.

Carter: Hey. Zende, how’s it going?

Zende: Oh, um, hey, thought I heard paris was in here.

Carter: Yeah, she was. I’m pretty sure she’s gone for the day.

Thomas: Oh, good, you’re home.

Paris: Yeah, uh… what is all this about?

Zende: Gone? Oh, shoot, I guess it’s later than I thought. I got caught up in a fitting.

Carter: Didn’t you two have plans? I had the impression there was some surprise for her tonight.

Zende: No firm plans but I was hoping. Maybe she got a better offer.

Thomas: Yeah, I figured… well, since we were talking about dinner earlier, I might as well make it special. Plus, we probably won’t have very many nights left as roommates.

Paris: True. Though I did mention I might be hanging out with zende, tonight.

Thomas: That’s right, you did. Um. Yeah, I don’t want to step on that. So you know what? I can clear all this up.

Paris: No, no, please. You went through all this trouble and I think zende might be working late anyway. So.

Thomas: Oh well, great. I hope you’re hungry.

Paris: I’m starving, actually.

Thomas: Me too. I went through all day today, was working so hard I– I forgot to have lunch.

Paris: Hmm. Tell me about it. I feel like I’ve been running a marathon. Everything is just go, go, go. But, I’m glad to be home. I get to relax a little bit.

Thomas: Okay, well then that is exactly what we’re going to do. It’s crazy, though. I mean, since we’ve been roommates, we really haven’t spent any time together as roommates. And, it kind of bombs that, you know, that’s going to end as soon as I find a place.

Paris: Well, you know, you don’t have to rush.

Thomas: I appreciate that. Yeah, it wouldn’t be so awesome if lived here with you and i never actually got to know you in a meaningful way. I guess that’s what I’m hoping to do tonight. I’d love to get to know you better.

Jack: Look, this isn’t easy.

Finn: I… I can imagine. But dad, just please understand that whoever this guy is, it doesn’t change anything between us. You’re my father, always. It’s the same as when I found out about sheila. You know, she didn’t take mom’s place. She never could. Finding out and knowing where I come from is just about that, knowing, getting the facts. Having a genetic history. And you get it. Right, mom? I mean, we’re– we’re both doctors. We live for that kind of data.

Li: I do get it. I completely understand why you had questions about your biological parents and now that you’ve met the mother. I’m guessing it’s only intensified your desire to meet the father, too.

Finn: Definitely.

Li: Well. We can make that happen.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: So you’re saying he’s close by? Is he in the L.A. Area?

Jack: Very close. You’re looking at him.

These are the faces

Carter: Look, man, I’m not trying to cause any problems but I think I might know where paris is right now. Having dinner with thomas.

Zende: Why would you think that?

Carter: I heard them earlier, said something about ordering in. Does that bother you? That they live together? I assume you must have some issues.

Zende: It is not my dream living situation for her. But, man. I’m fine with it. I trust her. I trust him. I mean, he’s my cousin. If they want to do a little roomie dinner night. It’s fine. I’m not jealous.

Carter: I’m not saying you should be. It’s water under the bridge, right? We’re good.

Zende: Okay…

Carter: But I would’ve never imagined what happened between you and zoe. So as your friend, I’m telling you to keep your eyes open.

Thomas: Okay, um… confession time.

Paris: Oh, no. Why am I suddenly nervous?

Thomas: There’s nothing to be nervous about. It’s just um, this is a little scandalous?

Paris: Okay, thomas. You’re being way too mysterious right now.

Thomas: Oh, it’s nothing. Okay, um… if you were expecting me to cook for you. Well, I had a whole plan. I was going to do it. And– and I had a whole list. I was going to go grocery store. I ended up just getting a take out.

Paris: That’s your big confession? You had already mentioned that you were going to go to my favorite noodle spot and get noodles. I would be disappointed if it was anything less.

Thomas: That’s exactly what I was thinking. Okay, good. Good, good. Good. However, you can let me know if I messed anything up, but I think I got all of your favorites.

Paris: You know my favorites?

Thomas: Well, yeah, I mean, I’ve paid attention. You know, it’s not like I’m keeping a whole record of you or anything like that. I just– I’ve picked up on likes and dislikes.

Paris: Okay. Yeah. I mean, even though we haven’t lived together for that long, I’ve picked up on a few of your likes and dislikes, too. Um… but thomas, please do not take this the wrong way. But I feel the need to remind you that I have a boyfriend and nothing about zende and I’s relationship has changed since I moved in here. You get that, right?

Finn: Okay dad, I don’t– what is “you’re looking at him”? I don’t– what does that even mean?

Jack: It’s confusing. I know. I’m trying to tell you what I– what I should have told you from day one. I’m not only your father because I adopted you, but genetically.

Steffy: Oh my god. You? And sheila?

Jack: I did not know how crazy she was, I swear. I should have told you. I should have told both of you. I couldn’T.

Li: Couldn’t?

Steffy: Was sheila trying to blackmail you?

Jack: No, no, it’s nothing like that. I mean, I could have. I just… it’s just the thought of losing li. I couldn’T.

Finn: So this is– this is true? You’re my biological father. You– you adopted your own son? Ready to shine from the inside out?

Zende: Carter, you’re not actually concerned about thomas, are you?

Carter: Look man, I haven’t seen any signs of trouble. It’s just a friendly warning. That’s all.

Zende: Okay. Thank you. I mean, I think paris has been a good influence on him. Both at home and at work. If anything, I should be encouraging them to spend more time together.

Thomas: Of course, I know that you have a boyfriend. I tell zende all the time how lucky he is.

Paris: All right. I was just saying because i thought I was catching a vibe for a second. That’s all.

Thomas: I am clearly impressed by you. I– I– you have to notice that every time that I see you or talk to you.

Paris: Thank you. That right there, that smile is so infectious. Come on. How am I not supposed to enjoy that? And you know what? You’re– you’re– you’re a wonderful person. You are caring, and loving, and kind, and incredibly talented. Okay, so that– that’s what I’m saying. I– I feel you, but I think we need to circle back to I have a boyfriend because I’m hearing–

Thomas: Admiration. That’s what you’re hearing. Look, I’m sorry if it’s coming out the wrong way. I respect you and zende’s relationship. And I’m very happy for the two of you, getting as close as you are and moving forward… if that’s what you want.

Paris: If?

Thomas: You could have another option if the feeling is mutual. That’s what tonight’s about. I want to tell you how I really feel before it’s too late.

Finn: You’re serious about this. You’re my biological father?

Jack: It’s a shock, I know. I should have told you sooner.

Finn: You’ve been– you’ve been lying to me my entire life? Knowing that I had questions? Knowing how desperate I was to have any information about where I came from, any information about my parents. And you’re sorry?

Jack: I am. Yes. I’m very sorry. I was ashamed, finn. Having an affair was one thing. But then sheila told me she was pregnant and I thought I’d lose everything and I couldn’t stand the thought of losing you. Then, I started to get to know sheila better. And, I realized that she was not in a position to raise a healthy child and there was the answer right in front of me. Li and I could adopt you and i could pretend that you came from some woman and had no connection to us.

Finn: So you didn’t know? You weren’t in on this? You had no idea?

Li: That I was… that I just adopted my husband’s love child? No. I just learned about this today.

Finn: So you cheated on my mother. You had some sick affair behind her back. And instead of manning up and telling the truth, you decided to compound the lie.

Jack: A horrible mistake, I know. What had seemed like a reasonable solution at the time: It was a way for me to keep my marriage intact and still have my son. And it wasn’t difficult to convince sheila that it was the right thing for you. And it– it felt like the best thing for me.

Finn: The best thing? My entire childhood. Your entire marriage is based on a lie.

Jack: No, finn, that’s not the case–

Finn: Mom deserved better from you. I deserved better. You should have told us the truth years ago! How could you do this, dad? How?

Don’t stop me, don’t stop me

Carter: More time with thomas? Don’t go overboard, man.

Zende: Okay, maybe I don’t actually mean that. I guess, I’m just– I’m proud of paris. The influence that she has on people.

Carter: And you should be. We were talking earlier. I told her what a great addition she’s been to the company. And I told her that she needs to talk, that I’m, that I’m here for her.

Zende: Thank you. I appreciate you being so supportive of her. Both of us.

Carter: She’s a very special young woman, which makes you a very lucky young man. And, if I can’t be fortunate in love, at least my buddy can.

Thomas: I’m deeply indebted to you, paris and the changes you’ve made in my life.

Paris: I’m flattered, thomas, but I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Thomas: Really? You don’t see how when you walk into a room, you change the entire mood? You light everything up, you light my world up. I know that for sure. And– and douglas? How you interact with him? You’re amazing with him. You’re so great. And he– he is crazy about you. And so am I. I really am. Now look, paris, I’m falling for you. And I’m not afraid to say it. I’m not afraid to be vulnerable, to open up and be honest with you. Tell you how I really, really feel in my heart. But, could you see that? A future with us. Is that something that you are actually open to? Because I can see how great we’d be together. But I don’t want to be friends. I want to be more. Much, much more.

Finn: What did mom ever do to deserve this from you?

Jack: Nothing.

Li: This isn’t about me, finn. I love you for defending me but–

Finn: No, but it is. And it makes me sick to think how little he felt of you. Betraying your marriage when i know damn well what you were going through at that time. You were putting in so many hours at the hospital, hoping to get pregnant, but unable. You told me how badly you wanted to have a baby, how hard you had tried and that I was that… I was that little miracle that came into your life. Well, some miracle, huh? It turns out it was a big manipulation.

Jack: I’m sure it feels that way to you. But if you just let me explain–

Finn: Explain lying to me my entire life.

Jack: I was trying to–

Finn: To my mom!

Jack: I was trying to protect you.

Finn: Protect me? You’re trying to protect yourself!

Jack: Yeah! At first, I admit that. But then I’d hear story after story on the news. The name sheila carter kept popping up and it was never good. So I thought I was making the right choice by keeping you away from her.

Finn: Oh bull! You’re just making excuses. You could have told me the truth and still kept sheila away. And you could have damn well told mom!

Jack: Knowing that I’d risk losing her? That’s what I was wrestling with, finn. Knowing that the truth would destroy her, destroy this beautiful life and this family I had, that I pray I still have. This doesn’t have to change anything, finn. I’m still your father and I always will be. Just a bit– just a bit differently than you thought. I’m your dad. You’re my son. Just please say you forgive me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victor: Well, let me know as soon as — yes, as soon as you do. Thank you. Hey, devon.

Devon: Mr. Newman. Hello.

Victor: My goodness. Thank you for coming by.

Devon: Oh, yeah.

Victor: How was the first overnight with our little boy?

Devon: Couldn’t have been better.

Victor: Yeah?

Devon: It really couldn’t have been better. Yeah, no, it’s — despite everything that’s going on in his world around him, he was very, very happy at my place.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Look at him. Well, thank you for bringing by my grandson to see me.

Devon: Yeah, absolutely. Any time.

Victor: I know we’re all trying to do the best under the circumstances.

Devon: Yeah.

Victor: Ashley now tells me that abby may have left town, you know, or at least she left the house.

Devon: Yeah, I heard that. I heard that same thing. And, you know, when she dropped him off, she mentioned to me that she was considering leaving town.

Victor: [ Exhales sharply ] Very concerned about her state of mind.

Abby: [ Sighs ]

[ Sighs ] Chance. I had to get out of that house. Felt like I was suffocating. Everyone hovering over me like i was a piece of glass about to shatter.

[ Sighs ] I just — I had to go somewhere, somewhere where I could understand my thoughts and someplace where I could focus on you. I…brought this box because i know it’s filled with things that mean a lot to you. And I thought that if I brought it, it would help me feel your presence.

[ Sighs ]

Lily: Okay. Gonna hit publish.

Billy: Just wait. Are we sure?

Lily: Yes, yes, we’ve been through this. We showed the words to the lawyers. Everyone’s in agreement. I mean, this is our best option.

Billy: Just hard to believe that after pulling an all-nighter, those are the three best lines that we have.

Lily: I know. Well, I mean, I can read it to you again if you want and you can see if you want to add anything. Yeah?

Billy: Yeah.

Lily: Okay. “Chancellor communications did not intend to publish yesterday’s exposé of ashland locke. We were victims of an illegal hack, and the article was published without our knowledge or approval. We are investigating the security breach and regret the error.”

Billy: You know what this means, don’t you?

Lily: I know, I know. It just looks like we’re trying to save ourselves, but we have to, okay? I mean, this puts on record that, you know, we were hacked and this can help cover us from any possible lawsuits.

Billy: So what is it about me that makes me want to double-down on this? Everything in that article is true about ashland’s past. We can stick it to adam and victor and ashland by telling the truth, by standing by the story.

Lily: I know, but you know why we can’t do that. We don’t have any way to prove it. It’s just gonna make chanccomm look even more irresponsible. Okay, listen, we can’t wait anymore. We have to publish this, okay?

Billy: Yeah. Yeah.

Lily: [ Sighs ] We did the right thing, alright? Even though we were hacked, we’re a media company, and as co-ceos, the responsibility lies with us.

Rey: I couldn’t agree more.

Ashland: You seem pleased. Does that mean what I think it means?

Adam: They just printed their retraction. Chanccomm looks as ineffectual as we knew they would. O man, that’s a whole lot of wrinkly

Devon: I don’t know, I’m just worried that I — I may have played a part in abby taking off.

Victor: Why do you say that? How so?

Devon: Well, because I — i shared with her my past experiences on grief, and i tried to get her to understand the importance of not only just, you know, relying and leaning on the support system that she has around her but to really take time for herself. And now I’m wondering if that’s what she’s doing. Is she taking time for herself by leaving time in private and not telling anybody?

Victor: I really am a little upset that she didn’t come to me with my grandson. I mean, nikki and I would have taken very good care of him.

Devon: Oh, I mean, yeah, of course, no doubt you would. And I — so you know, I had no idea that she was gonna do what she did and leave the baby like that. I was as surprised as anybody.

Victor: I’m sure you were. But I understand why she did come to you. You know, you’re very good with the boy. And besides that, you were there when he was born.

Devon: It’s true, and I also promised to always be there for her and the baby.

Victor: I want to thank you for what you have done for my daughter and for my grandson, okay?

Devon: Of course.

Victor: However, entrusting you with an infant, I mean, you’re gonna have to change diapers, perhaps, you know?

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Victor: I mean, this is putting a lot of responsibility on you.

Devon: No, I understand. I do, and I assure you that I’m up for it.

Victor: Yeah?

Devon: I really am. I am more than happy to take care of dominic while abby takes care of herself. And she’s left me with everything that I could need, and she’s having the nanny come, so we’re okay.

Victor: Well, as I said — but what?

Devon: But it’s abby taking off like she has without telling anybody, it’s — I’m worried.

Victor: Well, she has a lot of trust and faith in you, as well she should, you know? But I’m concerned… concerned about her state of mind. I don’t think she’s thinking clearly.

Devon: Yeah.

Faith: You met dominic?

Moses: Yeah, finally.

Faith: When?

Moses: This morning, before i went to school.

Faith: Uh, wait, where was this?

Moses: At devon’s place. Dominic’s supposed to be staying with us for a while.

Faith: Seriously? For how long?

Moses: I don’t know all the details, just that abby can’t handle taking care of him right now.

Faith: Oh, no. I wonder what that means. My aunt abby went through so much to have her baby. She wouldn’t have just handed him over like this unless she was a total wreck.

Abby: I remember helping pin this on you when you were putting on your dress blues. I stuck my finger, and then you took the pin and you stuck yours, too. You said that it was our blood oath. That we would always be there for each other, no matter what. I believe you then, and i believe you still. Oh, wow. This is from your time in iraq. You downplayed it. My modest hero. But I know it means a lot to you because it is here in this box. All of these pictures. Who are these people? They must be from your time in iraq, but you haven’t told me much about your time there. It’s almost like you locked it away. Look, I know that I told everyone that I accepted the fact that you were gone, but… I just — I can’T. I can’t stop this feeling in my heart that you are out there somewhere…alive.

[ Sighs ]

Billy: Rey, I really don’t have the time or the patience for more baseless accusations right now.

Rey: Oh, you got it all wrong. I’m here about an accusation that adam made. He said that you were trying to blackmail him and victor, threatening to release that article about ashland locke unless they backed off your company.

Billy: You got to be kidding. This is one big plot by victor and adam to sabotage our company.

Rey: Well, it looks like you made good on your threat. I saw you published the article.

Billy: My e-mail was hacked, and a message was sent to one of our reporters, giving authorization to release a story that we never intended to publish. You should check our website right now. There’s a full retraction on there, vetted by our lawyers. But you’re sitting here telling me that adam is accusing me of blackmail.

Lily: Okay, rey, you have to explain where this is coming from and why you’re taking adam seriously.

Rey: Adam actually has a recording of you confronting him and threatening to release that article unless they back off chanccomm.

Billy: Well, adam can claim whatever he wants. Newmans are the real criminals here. Most bladder leak pads were similar.

Rey: Well, unfortunately for you…adam gave me the recording.

Billy: Honestly, adam, I’m a little bit concerned for you. And I’m gonna be generous. I’m gonna take it easy. We have one of our best reporters crafting the story as we speak. But I won’t publish it if…

Adam: If?

Billy: …You, victor, and ashland cease all operations of attacking chanccomm. It’s as simple as that. That’s taken out of context. What you’re listening to right there is a — a business negotiation, and that is not admissible in court. I did not give them authorization to record me.

Rey: There’s more. There’s a video sent by jesse gaines that supports their claim of blackmail. Do you need to see it to refresh your memory?

Lily: Okay, okay, this is enough. Is this an official interrogation? I mean, do we have to call lawyers here? Like, what exactly do you want, rey?

Billy: Hits just keep on coming, don’t they? Newmans have covered all their bases. So what now, rey, you here to arrest me?

Adam: Well, welcome back.

Ashland: Thank you.

Adam: You look energized. Hope that glow isn’t all about besting billy. I hope there was some good news with your trip to the clinic in peru.

Ashland: I was put on an experimental protocol, and I’ve already received a full regimen of the treatment.

Adam: Well, I am glad to hear that. I’m sure victoria’s relieved, as well.

Ashland: Yes, we’re both feeling very positive. I’m actually happier for her than I am for myself. You’ll never get her to admit it, but this illness has taken quite a toll on her.

Adam: I’m sure it has. Well, my sister’s obviously very much in love.

Ashland: That makes two of us. I’ve been keeping up on everything going on around here, and it looks like it’s all on track.

Adam: Victor and I have done our part, so next move is yours.

Ashland: I’ve already set it in motion. I almost feel bad kicking billy when he’s down. Almost.

Adam: Almost.

Victor: I texted her. And abby is not returning any of my calls. I mean, do you remember anything she might have said that would leave us a clue as to where she went?

Devon: Not about where she was going. The only thing she said to me is that she was considering getting out of town so she can clear her head. But you remember that just a few days ago, she was talking about flying to valencia, spain.

Victor: Yeah, but wait a minute, I thought you had talked her out of that and that she was beginning to accept the notion that chance was gone.

Devon: I hope that we did, but what if we didn’t and that’s what she’s gone and done?

Victor: [ Sighs ]

Nikki: Oh, devon, so good to see you.

Devon: Hey.

Nikki: Is everything alright with the baby?

Devon: Oh, yeah, yeah. He’s just taking a nap right now.

Nikki: So, what’s going on? I can tell that you’re both concerned about something.

Victor: Yeah, well, abby has taken off without telling anyone where she has gone.

Devon: We’re both worried that she hasn’t accepted chance’s death the way we hoped.

Nikki: [ Sighs ] Well, now I’m worried, too. Victor, isn’t there some way you can find out where she is?

Victor: Well, she didn’t take the newman jet. But I guess I’ll have my people find out if she took any commercial airline.

Devon: And you know what? I’m gonna do some digging myself.

Victor: Okay. This has got me worried. Let’s keep in touch, okay?

Devon: Absolutely.

Nikki: Oh, devon, wait. I’d like to talk to you for a minute if you don’t mind.

Abby: Come on, chance, talk to me. Tell me how these things can bring me to you. This medal is for bravery, and now I’m the one who’s supposed to be brave. How could you have just left us like this?

Chance: I didn’t deserve this medal. Someday, I want to give it to the people who really deserve it.

Abby: Oh. That’s right. You said this was for a rescue mission, that you transported troops back to the base after a bomb went off. You said that you weren’t the real hero that day.

[ Sighs ] It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on

Abby: You said the real heroes that day were the medics who saved so many lives in that field hospital.

Chance: Errol and kim — they treated me like their son. They deserved that medal.

Abby: That’s right, you said there was a couple and they were medics in your unit in iraq, and they treated you like family. You said that one day, you wanted to give this to them in person.

Chance: They would do anything for me.

Abby: You said you kept in touch with them, even after they retired, but to where? The letters. Letters.

Nikki: Oh, he’s sleeping. Hi, sweet boy. Well, please have a seat.

Devon: Sure.

Nikki: Victor tells me that you’re taking care of dominic basically all on your own.

Devon: [ Chuckles ]

Nikki: I really admire what you’re doing. That’s a lot of responsibility to take on.

Devon: Yeah, it is. Are you worried about me?

Nikki: Oh, are you kidding? To the contrary. I know that you’re wonderful with the baby, and I’ve told victor as much. It’s really very kind and brave.

Devon: I mean, you know that dominic and abby are both my family now, so…

Nikki: I want you to know that you don’t have to do it all by yourself. Just ask if you need help. Single parenthood is not easy.

Devon: Yeah, I know, but I’m not alone.

Nikki: Well, no, I know that amanda just moved in and moses has been living with you.

Devon: Right, yeah, and they’re both very, very helpful, very helpful, very supportive. Although I have no intention on leaning on them for anything. I’m good. I got it under control.

Nikki: I’m sure that you do. But you’re also very busy running a company, and everybody needs help. It really does take a village.

Devon: Yeah, that’s very true, but you know that abby also has arranged for the nanny to come and help me, too.

Nikki: Oh, that’s good.

Devon: Yeah.

Nikki: But still, I want you to think of me as another resource. I’m — I’m here to help with anything. Just call on me if you need me.

Devon: Absolutely, of course.

Nikki: We don’t know where abby is or how long she’ll be gone, but if you really want to be there for dominic, you need to know that you have a lot of support around you, just in case you need to keep it up for a while.

Devon: Yeah.

Moses: Man, I mean, I knew devon had helped out by becoming a donor, but I had no idea about abby losing her first child.

Faith: It was terrible. She was so crushed.

Moses: That’s so sad. I mean, she finally gets her happy, healthy baby, and then loses her husband.

Faith: Yeah. She’s so devastated by it that she can’t even take care of the baby that she and chance wanted so much. It’s like she lost dominic, too.

Moses: Well, if it makes you feel better, dominic’s doing okay. Devon’s in full-on dad mode.

Faith: That’s incredible that he’d just drop everything to help a friend like that.

Moses: Devon’s the best. He’s been trying to fill in as a father figure for me since he knows what it’s like growing up without a dad, and I’m sure he’ll be there for dominic, too, since he kind of is his dad now.

Faith: Dominic never met chance. He’ll never know or remember the father that he lost. But with abby, it’s different. Who knows how long it’ll take for her to get over this, if she ever does.

Moses: Yeah.

Faith: [ Sighs ]

Rey: I’m not here to arrest you.

Lily: Then what is this about?

Rey: I have to investigate these dueling accusations. I want to be completely thorough before I present anything to the da.

Billy: Well, I appreciate you not jumping to conclusions.

Rey: In fact, I’d like to see any proof you have of the newmans infiltrating your e-mail system. It’s a federal crime, so I’m happy to pursue any claims you want to file against them.

Billy: Yeah, our I.T. Team hasn’t figured out how they breached our system yet, but we’re working on it.

Lily: Rey, look at the bigger picture here, okay? This is all a very calculated move against chanccomm. Adam and victor have it in for billy, and this is their way of coming after him and our company.

Rey: I know that the two of them are from saints and the layers of deception and double-cross are quite clear, but I follow the evidence, so unless you can come up with some proof of your claim, my hands are tied. I’ll be in touch.

Lily: So now what are we gonna do?

Billy: There’s only one option.

[ Telephone rings ]

Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, hello, billy. What can I do for you?

Billy: Adam, you’ve made your point. What do you want?

From the very first touch,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Billy: You, victor, and ashland have done everything you can to sabotage our company. And lucky for you, it appears to be working.

Adam: I got to say, it was a bad blunder publishing that article, billy. Now chanccomm looks awfully bad.

Billy: Well, you got what you wanted. Why don’t you go on and admit it? You hacked into our system, got us to publish that article.

Adam: Hey, you know, rey seemed really interested in those recordings that I gave him. You know, I really feel for you, billy. You never should’ve trusted gaines. Moral of the story is never rely on a blackmailer. That’s one of those hard and fast rules that I live by.

Lily: Adam, why don’t you just tell us what you’re after?

Adam: My advice is simple — fold and get out of the business that you are clearly unqualified to handle.

Lily: [ Scoffs ] You don’t think we’re really gonna do that, do you?

Adam: Hey, that retraction that you released, it’s even more embarrassing than the libelous article that you released. Reads like a pathetic attempt to create a defense.

Lily: We’re not gonna hand over the keys that easily.

Adam: Oh, we weren’t expecting you to walk away for nothing. Newman media would be glad to pay a decent price to take the company off your hands.

Billy: This company is not for sale, do you hear me? Especially not to someone like you.

Adam: You sure about that? I suggest you talk to jill, because if today’s news has the impact on your reputation that i assume it will, chanccomm is gonna be losing subscribers and your ad sales won’t be worth the cost of your company’s letterhead.

Lily: We are not going down without a fight.

Adam: Hey, if that’s what you’re looking for, count us in. We’ll be ready for it. Just be ready to be buried in lawsuits and legal fees. Even if you wanted to do some honest journalism, you won’t have the time or resources.

[ Knock on door ]

William abbott and lily winters?

Lily: Yes, yes.

You’ve been served.

Lily: Locke is suing us for libel.

Billy: Adam, listen to me, the gloves are off. Do you hear me? They are off!

Sharon: I’m really worried about abby. She was in pretty bad shape when I last saw her, and she must realize that because she left dominic with devon. Rey. Did you hear what I said?

Rey: Yeah, yeah, abby is dealing with a lot of stuff. But I’m pretty sure that dominic’s gonna be okay.

Sharon: Where was your mind just now?

Rey: I got sucked into a case that’s gnawing at me.

Sharon: Oh. Well, you want to run it by me? Sometimes it helps to bounce things off another person.

Rey: Well, sharon, it’s got low ethics and high stakes, but it’s not clear which side to believe. There may be enough evidence to arrest one party for blackmail, but I’m pretty sure doing so will just work into the other party’s hands. And I’m not about to be used as a pawn in their little chess game. It’s pretty clear that some underhanded business is in the works.

Sharon: Okay, you can stop with the vague generalities and the code words. If you’re doing that to protect me, I appreciate it, but I’m pretty sure I know who we’re talking about here — billy and adam.

Abby: Majorca, an island in the balearic sea. Not too far off the spanish coast from valencia. Sóller, there it is. A small port near the northwest coast. Okay. Yes, operator, I need a number. Errol and kim dunaway in sóller, spain. Yes, yes, please connect me.

Kim: Hola.

Abby: Hi. Is this kim dunaway?

Kim: Who’s calling, please?

Abby: This is abby newman chancellor. I’m phillip “chance” chancellor’s wife. Chance was telling me how much you and your husband, errol, mean to him. Look, please, I need to know if you or your husband have had contact with chance in the last six months.

Kim: I’m sorry, but you have the wrong number.

Abby: No, no, no, no, no, wait! I have something for you, something that chance wanted me to make sure that you had.

Kim: I really think you have the wrong number.

Abby: Do you know chance has a new son?

Kim: I’m sorry, we must have a bad connection. I’m having trouble hearing you clearly.

Abby: [ Sighs ] Operator, yes, I need to reach an errol and kim dunaway in majorca, spain. Yes, please connect me.

[ Line ringing ] It’s a clue. I know it is.

[ Sighs ] No one can deliver your mom’s homemade short ribs.

[ Cellphone rings ]

Abby: Yes, hello?

Kim: It’s kim dunaway. I don’t have much time. I had to step outside to call you back.

Abby: Why?

Kim: So he wouldn’t overhear. Chance, he’s here. Alive, but he’s in a bad way. He needs you.

Abby: [ Gasps ] Oh, my god.

[ Laughs ]

Billy: How insane is this? We are being sued for an article that we did not intend to publish, and every single word in that article is true.

Lily: No, I’m not surprised by this next phase of their very well-calculated attack. Bury us in legal fees and meaningless lawsuits.

Billy: Lily, it’s not meaningless if we lose our credibility. It destroys our company.

Lily: And don’t think for a second that we convinced rey to back off his investigation.

Billy: No, I’m sure that he’s going to talk to michael right now. But I do believe that he trusted our story. I think that he — he thinks we were set up, and he told us go get any information we can on adam so we can nail him. So maybe it’ll work out for us this time.

Sharon: We were at dinner together when adam came over and said that billy had blackmailed newman media, so I have a sense of what’s going on here.

Rey: Mm-hmm, well, now adam and billy are lobbing accusations at one another and engaging me in the battle.

Sharon: Well, if this is just business warfare, can’t you stay out of it?

Rey: Yeah, I wish I could. But it seems that billy’s pushed his tactics into illegal territory. Look, I’m trying to stick to the facts and not let my views of either one of them cloud my judgment, but, frankly, neither one of them look terribly innocent in this mess.

Sharon: You think both sides have committed crimes?

Rey: Well, there’s evidence against billy, but he’s also brought up some pretty valid countercharges against adam. He just hasn’t been able to prove it yet.

Sharon: Well, I don’t know what to say or think about any of this. You convinced me to stay out of the conflict between billy and adam, so maybe now it’s my turn to do that for you.

Rey: Yeah, I wish I could, but it’s my job. It’s my duty to follow up and get to the bottom of whatever’s going down between these two.

Sharon: No, I realize that, but I’m worried about you because if you’re right — and i am willing to believe that victor and adam would go to extremes to damage billy’s reputation — but wouldn’t your reputation be damaged, also, if you didn’t arrest billy?

Rey: Well, I didn’t say i wasn’t going to. I just don’t want to jump the gun. I want to talk through all these things with the da before I make any moves. And quite frankly, I’d like to end this war, not facilitate it, that’s all.

Sharon: Well, I admire your attitude, but did you ever consider that maybe it’s not your job to find a peaceful solution?

Lily: Look, relying on rey is not a viable strategy. We have to do everything that we can to defend ourselves.

Billy: Maybe we can try and get a newman onboard. When I finally talked to victoria, she was furious at me. She called me every name in the book and she demanded to know how this happened. She doesn’t know what they’re up to.

Lily: Or maybe she’s in on it. Look, I have to call the legal team back.

Billy: Victoria, I need you to, um…help me understand something. I need to know what ashland’s motivation is here because he is lying about his shady past and doing everything he can to destroy my company. And I need to know if you are on board at this.

Lily: Can we file one even though we don’t have any evidence that gaines is lying? Yeah, but locke confessed to the newman family, so maybe we can get one of them to go on record and tell the truth, you know? Would that work? No, I know, I know that — i know it’s probably unlikely, you know? We don’t — we — we need the evidence that, you know, that he’s lying, but we don’t have it. So —

[ Sighs ] Yeah, of course. I mean, we’ll keep searching. You know, we don’t really have any other choice.

[ Sighs ]

Louise: While the baby’s napping, I’ll run to the chancellors’ house and grab some onesies and his mobile.

Devon: Perfect. Perfect, perfect. I want to thank you, too, for being so flexible and being able to work here until abby gets back. I do appreciate it.

Louise: Oh, of course. It’s my job to take care of that little angel, wherever he is.

Devon: Oh, well, thank you so much. And also, you can take your time today, too, ’cause I’m not gonna leave for a few hours, so dominic and I will be just fine.

Louise: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: There you go. See you soon.

Abby: Devon, knowing dominic is safe with you is the only way I can do this. And I do need to do it. Not just for me, but for dom. Please tell him I love him more than anything in the world. I’m afraid this is gonna take longer than I thought.

Devon: Abby, what the hell did you do? Unleash the freshness…

Devon: Denise, hello. This is devon hamilton. I am, uh — I’m once again asking you to come out of retirement because I need your help. I need to find my friend, abby newman chancellor.

Victor: My daughter abby is missing. I need you to find out where she has gone and I need you to do it fast. Is that clear? Okay.

[ Cellphone rings ] Yes? Send him in.

Billy: We need to talk.

Victor: Well, now, billy boy. I wondered when you were gonna show up.

Billy: I bypassed the other two minions and I came straight to the source.

Victor: Ah.

Billy: Because, really, this is about your hatred for me anyway, isn’t it? Your son is nothing but a runt who’s along for the ride.

Victor: [ Chuckles ] Adam has plenty of his own vitriol for you. As does ashland locke. In fact, you seem to collect enemies the way some people collect stamps.

Billy: Here’s the plan. It all stops. All of it. Your attacks, everything. You convince ashland to withdraw the lawsuit, and I step down from chanccomm.

Lily: Excuse me. Have you seen billy abbott?

Ashland: Don’t tell me billy’s skipped town already. He can’t take the heat?

Lily: Why are you doing this? Why are you trying to ruin us? Like, is this sport for you? Like, what do you gain from this? And I actually defended you to billy. And now I wish I never had.

Victor: Ah, billy boy. Why would you fold so quickly? You’re a gambler. You must have really had a bad hand.

Billy: I walk away, I leave chanccomm for lily to run. She doesn’t deserve to be punished like this. I’ll take the hit.

Victor: Really?

Billy: You’re getting what you want, victor. I’m down on the ground, you’re rubbing my face in the dirt. You want me to say it? I will, okay? I failed. Couldn’t hack it with the big boys. You win.

Victor: Well, I’ll be damned.

Jack: Chance is gone? Killed while working undercover?

Ashley: I’m afraid so.

Jack: When?

Ashley: A few days ago, in valencia, spain. Christine came by to tell us in person, and we’ve all been reeling ever since.

Jack: Oh, my god, abby’s got to be devastated.

Ashley: It’s been excruciating. She’s been in so much pain, jack, and there’s nothing I can do to help her.

Jack: My heart goes out to her. I wish I’d known this. I would’ve been here to help.

Ashley: I’m sorry, I know. We couldn’t tell you any sooner because the spanish authorities haven’t been able to recover a body.

Jack: Wait, then chance is —

Ashley: He’s just presumed dead, but they did find some of his personal effects in the rubble. They found his watch. They found his wedding ring.

Jack: I get the — I get the picture.

Ashley: I’m sorry, jackie, i know you cared about him. I know you loved him.

Jack: Oh, god, he’s just a terrific young man. His whole life ahead of him. Just a tragic waste.

[ Inhales sharply ] Okay, look, I want to be here to support you and abby in any way I can.

Ashley: I’m gonna take you up on that. I’m gonna tell traci later today, but can you talk to billy about it?

Jack: Yeah, yeah, I’ll take care of it.

Ashley: Okay.

Jack: What about jill?

Ashley: Thankfully, nina handled that, but I’m sure jill would appreciate if you reached out to her yourself.

Mariah: Hello?

Ashley: In here.

Mariah: Hi.

Ashley: Good morning.

Mariah: Am I interrupting?

Jack: No, not at all. Ashley was just telling me the tragic news.

Mariah: Yeah, it’s, um… it’s just awful. I came to check on abby. Is she up yet?

Ashley: Actually, she left before we woke up. I’m not really sure where she went.

Mariah: Um, well, is the baby doing okay? Can I see him?

Ashley: He’s not — he’s not here.

Mariah: So abby took him with her?

Ashley: No, actually, the baby’s gonna be staying with devon for a bit.

Devon: Come on, buddy, you can do it. Give me a “B.” Give me a “U.” Give me a “R.” Give me a “P.”

Dominic: [ Burps ]

Devon: Hey! There you go! Good job, man. That was great. Oh, hey, I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were up.

Amanda: Oh, I wouldn’t miss this for the world.

Devon: Oh. I think he’s settling in pretty nicely. Barely woke up last night. And he’s so much calmer than he was at the mansion.

Amanda: Think that abby made the right decision bringing him here. You know, this is exactly what he needed — a nice, calm routine.

Devon: Yeah. I’m just happy that she trusted me.

Amanda: She’s so lucky to have a friend like you.

Devon: Just, you know, the fact that she even got to the point, though, of actually coming and leaving him with me just goes to show how much pain she’s really in, though.

Lauren: Here you go. One extra-hot triple-shot mocha with a dash of cinnamon, just the way you like it.

Michael: [ Laughs ] What did I do to deserve this?

Lauren: So many things. But let’s start with the superb job you did of grilling that defense witness yesterday. I’m just so glad I got to see you in court. I just wish they had been videotaping it because it was truly a master class in cross-examination. My love, you are an artiste.

Michael: Thank you for that high praise. I have to admit, it — it really does wonders for my mojo knowing that my biggest fan is sitting in the gallery.

Lauren: Aww. Is that so?

Michael: Yeah, it’s always a nice boost to have somebody looking at you adoringly. For whatever reason, I don’t always get that from the opposing attorney or the jury.

Lauren: [ Laughs ] Well, I hope not.

Michael: I live for that laugh, you know.

Lauren: Well, you are still the wittiest man I have ever met.

Michael: I’m glad I can keep you amused.

Lauren: How lucky are we that we found each other and that we still feel so much in love?

Michael: Extremely. But not everybody is this fortunate.

Lauren: Mm. Thinking about nick and phyllis?

Michael: Hmm. Our best friends are hurting, and there is not a damn thing we can do about it.

Nick: [ Sighs ] Hey.

Phyllis: Hi. This is, um…

Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah.

Phyllis: Well, um, you stay here. I’ll get a bagel somewhere else.

Nick: No, no, you were here first. I’ll go somewhere else.

Phyllis: You don’t have to do that.

Nick: [ Sighs ] You know, this is ridiculous. We’re gonna run into each other. Let’s just get past it.

Phyllis: Yeah, let’s get past it. I mean, you’d think that we’d be good at this. We’ve done it so many times.

Nick: I believe the best way to deal with something uncomfortable is to just face it head on. So…you want to have breakfast with me?

Don’t stop me, don’t stop me

Mariah: Why would abby leave the baby with devon? When was this decided?

Ashley: She made the decision on her own without consulting anybody else. Victor and I found out after the fact.

Mariah: Ah —

[ Sighs ] I’m just shocked.

Ashley: Mm-hmm. Well, we all were.

Mariah: Did abby give a reason?

Ashley: Well, mariah, she’s drowning in grief. I mean, clearly, if she’d asked me, I would have gladly taken care of my own grandson.

Jack: Traci and I would’ve been there for her, as well.

Ashley: Of course, and nikki and victor and nina. I mean, there’s no shortage of people that love that little boy.

Mariah: I wasn’t even in the running to be considered. Not after I admitted I got too attached to the baby. You know, I’m — I’m doing my best to put that all behind me. I’m trying to keep things in perspective. I guess abby doesn’t trust me after that.

Ashley: Honey, for whatever it’s worth, I haven’t heard anything like that from her. I think it was just natural for her to reach out to devon.

Jack: Yeah, makes all the sense in the world. Those two have been close for years. They’ve come to rely on each other.

Ashley: Yeah, and since we found out about chance, you know, devon’s been incredibly supportive and he’s great with the baby, so please don’t take this personally.

Mariah: No, no, of course not. I just went through my own trauma recently, and I get where abby is coming from. Sometimes you just — you need to take a break.

Ashley: Thanks for being so understanding.

Mariah: Well, I’ll — I’ll probably check on devon and the baby before I go to work.

Jack: Yes, and I have somewhere I need to be. I will get the news to billy, okay?

Ashley: Thank you.

Jack: Yeah. Want to walk me out?

Mariah: Yeah, absolutely.

Jack: Hey, hang in there.

Ashley: Thanks.

Jack: Be strong.

Ashley: Bye, mariah.

Mariah: Bye.

Ashley: Honey, it’s your mom. I know that you want to be alone. I understand that, but I’d really like to know where you are so that I can make sure you’re okay. So, if you need to talk, you know that I’m always here for you. Please just call me as soon as you get this, okay?

Lauren: Poor nick and phyllis. I really feel for them.

Michael: I know, so do I.

Lauren: I wonder what happened.

Michael: I was a little curious about that myself. I mean, it wasn’t their usual spectacular blow-up. No cheating, no big scandal.

Lauren: No outside forces pulling them apart. Maybe it just fizzled.

Michael: At least they don’t seem bitter.

Lauren: No, and I assume it’s more about who they are as people and what they want in a relationship.

Michael: Well, that would certainly be a vastly more mature way to end a love affair.

Lauren: [ Chuckles ]

Michael: Although probably no less painful.

Lauren: You know, sometimes it’s those quiet realizations that just sneak up on you bit by bit that are just so devastating. You know, maybe they felt like they were better as friends and parents than lovers.

Nick: So what looks good to you?

Phyllis: Um…the huevos rancheros or blueberry pancakes.

Nick: Strong. I am definitely gonna go with —

Phyllis: The spinach, mushroom, swiss omelet, get rid of the toast, substitute it with a fruit cup, and a side of habanero salsa.

Nick: How’d you know that?

Phyllis: ‘Cause I know you. You know, you’re a creature of habit. You only order two things on this menu. The other day, you had the bacon waffle. I know all your habits.

Nick: Yeah, I do only order those two things. Guilty as charged.

Phyllis: This isn’t gonna work.

Nick: What?

Phyllis: “What?” This. You know, us being pals and buddies. I don’t think we can get past this tension.

Nick: What do we do, then?

Phyllis: I don’t know. Cut to the chase? You want to cut to the chase and just say whatever’s on our mind? Or we could just forget the whole thing.

Nick: I’d really rather not do that.

Phyllis: Why?

Nick: Because I care about you and I would like us to try and be friends.

Phyllis: Maybe with time.

Nick: You know what, phyllis? Life is too short, so just talk about what is on your mind.

Phyllis: How’s your family?

Nick: [ Scoffs ] After 40 wrinkles deepen and skin can get uneven

Nick: Are you sure you want to get into that?

Phyllis: I love living dangerously.

Nick: Well, I know my family is, like, your least favorite topic on this earth.

Phyllis: Oh, yeah, that’s for sure. That’s for sure, but you love talking about them. They seem to always be on your mind.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] Yes, they are.

Phyllis: So I saw the article that billy put out busting ashland for the fraudulent will. I mean, that’s a shock, right? But chanccomm’s number-one source, what, that gaines guy, says the whole thing’s bogus.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. It’s gotten crazy. I don’t know who’s telling the truth anymore.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] What does victoria say?

Nick: Haven’t talked to her since the story came out.

Phyllis: Oh. She’s giving you the silent treatment?

Nick: No, things are definitely better between us. Just trying to stay out of the mess, you know? I think it’d be for the best. Billy has not been able to do that, and he’s getting burned now, big time.

Phyllis: Are you kidding me? For months, I’ve been telling you to stay out of the mess. For months, I’ve been telling you to ignore your family’s lunacy. And now, all of a sudden, staying out of the mess seems like a great idea. Wow, awesome. Awesome. That’s incredible.

[ Huffs ]

Nick: You feel better? You got to say —

Phyllis: No, I don’t feel better. But I do feel fantastic that I’m not walking on eggshells anymore with you. That feels great. I mean, ’cause what are you gonna do, break up with me?

Nick: No, I mean, that’s not an option, right?

Noah: Thank you. Hey, how’s it going?

Tessa: Oh, it’s pretty good. How are you? Are you getting used to the gc groove?

Noah: It’s gonna take a little while to get over the culture shock. You know, the pace in london, it’s — it’s a lot faster.

Tessa: Oh, I’m sure you miss it there.

Noah: Actually, the real surprise has been how much i don’t miss it. Yeah, you know, I kind of like how things here are a little bit more leisurely, you know?

Tessa: I almost believe you.

Noah: I’m serious.

Tessa: [ Laughs ]

Noah: Although I can’t really help but feel I’m running behind. Does that make sense?

Tessa: No, no, it does. I mean, it always takes me a second to re-acclimate when i come back from somewhere else, so…

[ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, bad news?

Noah: Uh…no, it’s — it’s not important.

Tessa: Well, do you have a minute? There’s actually something i want to ask you.

Noah: I’m on leisure time, remember?

Tessa: Great. I’m gonna grab a coffee, and I’ll be right back. Hi, can I just get a cup of black coffee, please?

Devon: Yeah, I’m gonna be working from home today. Yep, and can we see if my 4:00 P.M. Is okay with a video meeting, or we can go ahead and reschedule them? Alright, yeah, that’s it. Okay, thank you. Yo! Hey, before you go, I want to introduce you to somebody. This is the famous dominic that you’ve been hearing so much about.

Moses: Wow. I thought I was dreaming about a baby crying last night. That was real.

Devon: Yeah, man, it was real. It was — he had some things to get off his chest around 2:00 A.M. Did we keep you up?

Moses: No, no, it wasn’t a problem, but why is he here?

Devon: Abby needed my help with him because she asked if i can watch him for a little while while she’s dealing with the loss of her husband.

Moses: Oh. Okay. No offense, but do you even know how to take care of a baby?

Devon: Yes, I know how to take care of a baby. Of course I do. I used to watch after the twins now and then. Do you know how to take care of any kids or babysit?

Moses: Uh…no, not — not anyone this little. What a sweet face.

Devon: Hmm.

Moses: Wow.

Devon: What?

Moses: Dominic just looked at me and he totally has your eyes.

Devon: Really?

Moses: Yeah, no one’s ever mentioned that before?

Devon: No, no, I haven’t heard that one yet.

[ Chuckles ]

Moses: Well, don’t worry, he’s still cute.

Devon: Thanks.

Moses: [ Laughs ]

[Hall & oates “you make my dreams” plays]

Nick: I, uh — I talked to summer. I told her that we weren’t together anymore.

Phyllis: Yeah, she called me after you talked. She wanted to see how I was doing. She wasn’t smug. That was great. I mean, she didn’t think that we would last from the beginning, so…

Nick: Yeah, I remember that.

Phyllis: Yeah. She was sad. Um…but her wedding was magical. We had fun, right? That was fun.

Nick: Yeah, I’m really glad we got to share that. I mean, what more could parents want than to see their kids happy?

Phyllis: Yeah. I mean, she’s gonna be okay, right? I mean, she hasn’t learned from us, has she? We’re not gonna pass that on to her, our confusing relationship.

Nick: [ Chuckles ] She’s gonna be just fine. Really proud of that kid.

Phyllis: I am, too. So I didn’t tell her about chance. I know that the abbotts are sort of keeping it quiet, and i didn’t want it to get back to jack, you know, through the grapevine.

Nick: I’m assuming ashley’s gonna be handling all that very soon, if she hasn’t already.

Phyllis: She needs to.

Nick: Yeah. Alright, I, uh — I got to get to a meeting. Thank you for having breakfast with me.

Phyllis: It was fun.

Nick: Maybe we can do it again soon.

Phyllis: Yeah, maybe.

Nick: You want me to walk you out?

Phyllis: No, it’s okay. I’m gonna finish my coffee.

Nick: Alright. Have a good rest of your day.

Phyllis: You, too.

[ Sighs ]

Tessa: So I just re-signed with devon’s label.

Noah: Where you should be. Congrats.

Tessa: Thank you. It has set all kinds of great things in motion. For starters, I am releasing my first full-length album.

Noah: Wow! That’s — that’s incredible, tess.

Tessa: Thank you. Oh, it’s so much more work than putting out a single or an ep, but I — I’m really excited. Which is where you come in.

Noah: Me? How’s that?

Tessa: I would like you to design the cover.

Noah: Um, I mean, I’m incredible flattered that you’d ask.

Tessa: And devon is totally cool with it. He loves your work.

Noah: Yeah, that’s — that’s great to hear. It’s just, um…

Tessa: Uh-oh.

Noah: I’m used to having total creative control. And I’ve worked with devon before, and he’s great with artists, you know, has a great respect for the whole creative process.

Tessa: But…?

Noah: [ Sighs ] But I just got done working with my grandpa and adam on some design stuff for newman media, and, you know, they were kind of just breathing down my neck the whole time.

Tessa: Okay. Yes, but victor and devon?

[ Both laugh ] Come on, there’s on comparison. It’ll be a totally different experience. Okay, just listen to the album, see if anything sparks for you. I’m really proud of what devon and I have put together, and i think you’re gonna want to be a part of it.

Noah: I’d love to hear your songs.

Tessa: Okay, I will send you the files right now.

Devon: I take it abby told you that dominic was here?

Mariah: Uh, actually, ashley told me. She seemed a little taken aback that abby didn’t ask her or victor to take care of the baby.

Devon: Yeah, I mean, I was surprised, too. You know, abby just showed up to my door.

Mariah: How did she seem? I mean, I can imagine she wasn’t in a great state of mind if she felt like she couldn’t take care of the baby.

Devon: Yeah. I mean, I was — it was tough for her to admit that, but i think she left relieved knowing that he’s gonna be looked after while she’s getting the help she needs.

Mariah: How are you doing with all of this?

Devon: I’m doing alright. I am. Thank you for asking. He’s doing fantastic. He pretty much slept through the whole night. He finished his bottle this morning, and he’s just so much calmer than he was at the mansion. You’re in a good mood, aren’t you?

Mariah: [ Chuckles ]

Devon: Really are.

Mariah: Hi! Hi, dom. You a happy boy?

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Mariah: Oh, look at that smile.

Devon: I know. He’s been like that all morning.

Mariah: Well, I’m glad he’s out of that stressful environment.

Devon: Yeah.

Mariah: I can’t help my own feelings, though. I’m sure you probably know. I just wish that abby had come to me. I would’ve loved to be the one to look after dom.

From the very first touch,

“The young and the restless”

will continue.

Devon: Yeah, I knew you’d be disappointed that abby didn’t ask you for help.

Mariah: Do you have any idea why she decided against it?

Devon: No, it never came up. But, hey, you know that you’re more than welcome to come over here and visit dominic any time you want to, just like you were doing at the mansion. And this is temporary, too. I don’t even know how long I’m watching him for.

Mariah: Have you heard from abby this morning at all?

Devon: No, just figured she was sleeping in.

Mariah: Actually, no. She left the house before anybody woke up, and nobody has any idea where she is. I tried to reach her, but she’s not answering any phone calls and she’s not at society.

Dominic: [ Cooing ]

Mariah: Oh, do you want to be a part of the conversation, too? You do? Well, that’s great, because i love talking to you. Do you have any idea where abby might be?

Devon: No, I don’t, but she did mention last night the idea of getting out of town.

Mariah: Out of town?

Devon: Mm-hmm.

Mariah: Without telling anybody where she’s going or for how long?

Devon: It was just a thought she was having. There was no definitive plans.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] Nick just left.

Jack: I just saw him walk out.

Phyllis: [ Sighs ] We had a friendly breakfast.

Jack: How did that go?

Phyllis: It was fine. It was civil. It was fine.

[ Sighs ] I don’t know why I’m acting like this. I’m okay with this, really. I’m okay with it.

[ Chuckles ]

Jack: Look, if you don’t feel like company, I —

Phyllis: No, I want the distraction. Really, have a seat. So, why are you here?

Jack: I’m here to have breakfast with michael and lauren. I guess I’m a little early.

Phyllis: You don’t seem very excited about it.

Jack: Yeah, I’m not really feeling in the mood to socialize. I just got some news about my family that has shaken me up.

Phyllis: Uh, yeah, I know. I’m sorry to hear about chance. I really am, and, you know, i was there from the beginning, seeing those two, you know, develop a relationship, and i think that if anybody was gonna have a happy ending, it was definitely those two.

Jack: My heart just goes out to her. I…I know you think of her as a spoiled heiress, but she has had more than her share of heartbreak, terrible loss, real betrayal, and…I was so happy that she’d fallen in love with this guy. Seemed like he was a man that could help her trust in sustained happiness again, and…

[ Sighs ] And now she’s lost him.

Phyllis: Hey. You feel things deeply, and i know how broken up you were when kyle and summer broke up, and you’ve really been there for me, whether I deserved it or not.

Jack: What else would you have me do? Turn my back?

Phyllis: Yeah, but what about you? You know, you need someone to lean on. And I want you to know that i will always, always be there for you.

Amanda: Oh, what a wonderful surprise, running into the two of you.

Phyllis: [ Chuckles ]

Amanda: I’m sorry, am i interrupting something? No one can deliver your mom’s homemade short ribs.

Phyllis: No, it’s fine. It’s fine, we were just talking about chance.

Jack: Ashley just told me the news about chance, and i’m pretty devastated.

Amanda: I am really sorry for your family’s loss. Chance was an exceptional human being.

Jack: Yeah, thank you for that. And thank you to both you and devon for stepping up, for taking dominic into your home.

Amanda: Of course, we want to do everything we can to help.

Michael: Hey!

Lauren: Hi.

Jack: Hi, there. Right on time.

Lauren: Well, we try. How are you, phyllis?

Phyllis: Oh, I’m good, thanks.

Michael: Hi.

Phyllis: Hi.

Lauren: And lovely to see you as always.

Amanda: Oh, you, as well.

Michael: Hey, would you excuse amanda and me? Uh, we’ll just be a moment.

Jack: Yeah.

Lauren: Sure.

Lauren: Do you want to join us for breakfast?

Phyllis: Oh, no. Oh, I have to leave. I already had breakfast, but thank you.

Lauren: Oh, alright. Well, another time.

Phyllis: Yeah, definitely. Good to see you.

Lauren: Good to see you.

Phyllis: You take care.

Jack: Yeah, you, too.

Michael: Now, the defense will probably rest after sutton’s testimony. Then there’s closing arguments and jury deliberation, which i hope won’t go on too long.

Amanda: Look at you, you seem confident.

Michael: Mm, well, everything has gone well thus far. I’m getting some vibes from the jury. They do not like sutton. They don’t want to see him get away with this.

Amanda: I really hope you’re right. But let’s not forget, sutton is a career politician, extremely good at playing to an audience. I almost fell for his act myself, so I know how effective it can be.

Michael: Yes, well, the big difference would be you didn’t have me by your side to counter sutton on all his lies and evasive maneuvers, but the jury will.

Tessa: We haven’t done the final mix yet, but you should be able to get the vibe of the album from what I sent you.

Noah: Cool.

Mariah: Hey. Hi, guys.

Tessa: Hi.

Noah: Hey.

Tessa: What’s wrong?

Mariah: I just came from visiting dom. He’s at devon’S.

Tessa: Oh. Well, what is he doing there?

Mariah: Abby feels like she can’t adequately take care of him right now, which i completely understand, so she left him with devon.

Noah: Yeah, I can’t believe abby has to face this. I just feel so bad for her.

Mariah: Evidently, I wasn’t even considered to take care of him, even though I offered. Nobody trusts me anymore.

Tessa: Well, you know, i think it’s less that and more abby just trying to be sensitive after everything you’ve gone through.

Mariah: And what’s more, abby might have left town this morning without telling anyone how long she’d be gone for. I mean, you can’t just do that when you have a child, you know?

Noah: Do you know for sure that abby left?

Mariah: No, but nobody knows where she is, she isn’t answering her phone. What if there is an emergency?

Tessa: Well, you know, let’s take it one step at a time. Maybe take a few deep breaths. ‘Cause if abby’s gone, it’s only been a few hours, so there’s no real emergency quite yet.

Mariah: Okay, but if you were a mother, and even if you couldn’t take care of your child for whatever reason, you would still want to be close, right? To make sure that things are okay? I know I would.

Noah: It’s pretty hard for any of us to put ourselves in abby’s place.

Tessa: I feel like I can. Well, when mariah was missing, i couldn’t help but imagine what it would be like if she never came back. I would’ve lost my mind.

Mariah: I have to remember that everybody handles grief differently. But if abby did leave town, isn’t that just a little irresponsible?

Ashley: So I thought I’d see how the baby’s doing.

Devon: He’s doing great. He’s taking a nap right now upstairs. Abby left me with the baby monitor and anything else i could possibly need, so we’re good.

Ashley: Good to hear.

Devon: Yeah. How’s she doing, though? ‘Cause mariah came by and told me that she took off this morning.

Ashley: I haven’t heard from her, so I checked out her room and now I’m worried.

Devon: Why are you worried?

Ashley: I think she packed a bag. Toiletries are missing. Some clothes are missing. So I called the grand phoenix, i called the athletic club, just to see if maybe she checked in there for the night to get her head straight. She’s not registered at either place, at least not under her own name.

Devon: Well, listen, last night, she did mention getting out of town.

Ashley: Did she say where she might go?

Devon: No, she didn’T. It was like a passing thought she was having, and I didn’t think she was serious about it. But it kind of sounds like that’s what she did.

Ashley: Yeah, I think you’re right.

Devon: I wish she would’ve told somebody.

Ashley: Abby doesn’t behave this way. Clearly, she’s not herself. Motrin works fast to stop pain where it starts.

Lauren: You seemed worried when phyllis was leaving earlier. I assume it’s about her breakup with nick. So sad.

Jack: Yeah, we were all rooting for them to work things out, but they’d been building toward this for some time now.

Lauren: Hmm. I gather she’s been confiding in you.

Jack: Well, I provided a friendly ear, a sounding board, someone who knows her worst instincts and can warn her not to give in to them.

Lauren: You can warn her, but will she listen?

Jack: You know what? I think you’d be surprised. She has handled herself with real grace and poise.

Lauren: Do you think you can be objective with her? I mean, phyllis is your ex.

Jack: I’ve been a friend to her when she needed one.

Lauren: Good.

Jack: I take it, then, you disapprove of anything more?

Lauren: Look, I love you both, but to repeat the mistakes of the past? Those were tough times. She caused you a lot of anguish. I mean, the fact that you two are even friends today, I mean, that’s a miracle.

Jack: You know what? We’ve all grown older and wiser.

Amanda: I don’t know all of the missing details, but, objectively, I would say that you have a deep connection with jack. You know, and he’s been a huge part of your life all of these years. And you’ve told me how much you still care about each other, despite your rocky past. So, phyllis, have you considered the possibility that jack is more than a friend to you? So maybe you’ve never fully gotten over him.

Phyllis: I love you, too. That’s never gonna change.

Jack: Well, thank you. It’s — it’s not the same thing, but I appreciate the sentiment.

Phyllis: It is the same thing. I really love you. You’ll always be in my heart… permanently in my heart. So just keep that knowledge with you, okay?

[ Doorbell rings ]

Devon: Nick, hey.

Nick: Hey. Am I early?

Devon: We have a meeting, don’t we?

Nick: Yeah.

Devon: I’m so sorry.

Nick: Is it not a good time?

Devon: Dude, no, it’s — come on in. It’s fine. I just completely forgot.

Nick: You babysitting?

Devon: Uh…yeah, I am, I am. Dominic is actually upstairs taking a nap. Abby stopped by last night and asked if I would look after him for a little while while she gets herself together.

Nick: I told you, last time i saw her, she seemed completely overwhelmed. I appreciate that she’s, you know, reached out to you and that you’re there for her. It means a lot to me.

Devon: Absolutely. Of course. You know I’d do anything for her and the baby.

Nick: You know what? Kind of seems like you got your hands full. Let’s just reschedule this. Think I want to see my sister anyway.

Devon: Well, you know that no one knows where she’s at right now.

Nick: What do you mean?

Devon: Ashley came by earlier and told me that abby packed a bag this morning and disappeared, and now she’s not answering anyone’s calls or responding to texts.

Nick: No texts, no note, nothing?

Devon: Not a thing, no. And what worries me is, from the state she was in last night, she does not need to be alone.

Nick: We got to find her.

Devon: Yeah.

Ashley: Abby? Abby? Abby, honey, you’ve been gone for hours, and nobody has heard from you. Now, I know you don’t want us to worry, but we can’t help it. Call me as soon as you get this, please. I love you.
