Gwen: what kristen dimera told you–

Ava: Ah, save it. Shut that door because what we have to talk about is private.

Gwen: Are you on kristen’s payroll or something?

Ava: No, but I owe her, or at least she sees it that way. So she expects me to help you break her out of jail. That’s why I’m here.

Gwen: So e’s blackmailing you.

Ava: As she is you, sweetie. So stop acting like you don’t know what I’m talking about because we need to put our heads together and figure out a way to break her out of jail, and we need to do it fast.

Kristen: The van is already on its way?

Rafe: Oh, yeah. See, I pulled strings to get you out of here as soon as possible. The van back to statesville should be here in about an hour.

Kristen: That’s too soon.

Rafe: What’s that? You have a pressing appointment maybe?

Kristen: Well, I haven’t been able to say goodbye to anyone.

Rafe: And who in this town would be sad to see you go?

Lani: Her best friend.

Xander: You have to know what I’m talking about; you called me on the day of my wedding.

Susan: Oh, what did I say?

Xander: You warned me about rex and sarah. You said you saw them at the brady pub as they were heading upstairs to one of the rooms.

Susan: I did?

Xander: This doesn’t ring a bell?

Susan: You know what? They gave me one of those shots, and it just made me forget stuff.

Xander: Let me tell you what you said because I will never forget you opening my eyes about my unfaithful fiancéE.

Allie: Oh good, you’re here.

Lucas: What, something wrong?

Allie: You don’t know about grandma marlena?

Lucas: No, what about her?

Allie: Okay, this is going to sound off the wall, but i swear it’s true. She’s possessed by the devil again.

Lucas: If this is some stunt that johnny put you up to for his movie–

Allie: No, no.

Lucas: I’m telling you.

Allie: No, it’s for real! Aunt belle just told me.

Lucas: Belle told you that? That’s not possible, not again.

Allie: That’s what I said too, but no, she says it’s true. She swears it’s true.

Lucas: I guess this is making a little bit more sense now. Yes, it’s a creepy kind of sense, but…

Allie: I didn’t believe it when people told me about grandma back in the ’90s.

Lucas: Does anyone know where she is, mainly the cops?

Allie: I don’t know–I mean, I tried calling will, johnny, and sydney, but no one’s picking up, and of course, there’s mom, who’s still mia.

Sami: You know, I just have to do it. Take everything off the tray. I don’t like airplanes, cafeterias, ever since I was a little kid. I had to eat it separate.

Jason: Hey, whatever works. It’s all good.

Sami: Right? Oh, jason, I just want to say I’m sorry about the phone thing. It won’t happen again.

Jason: Cool, it better not.

Sami: Mm-hmm, okay.

[Dramatic music]

What? Dammit, dammit to hell!

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

[Soft orchestration]

Eli: Abe, come on in. How you doing, man?

Abe: Well, I have been better.

Eli: Yeah, I’m sure. I still can’t believe that chanel thought that your wedding was the right time to make her announcement.

Abe: Oh, there’s no time to get news like that. So is lani here? You think she’ll see me?

Abe: No, lani’s not here right now, and to be honest, I don’t know when she’ll be back.

Kristen: You’re gonna take a lot of flack for coming here to see me.

Lani: I can handle that. I couldn’t let you go back to prison without saying goodbye. Do you mind giving us a moment alone, please?

Rafe: I’ll let you know when the van arrives.

[Phone ringing]

Lani: I’m sorry about all this.

Kristen: I brought it on myself. Hey, what about you? Something’s wrong. I can see it in your eyes. Come on, lani.

Lani: To be honest, my whole world has just been turned upside down.

Kristen: What happened?

Lani: I found out that abe is not my birth father and that my whole life has just been kind of a lie.

Gwen: If you and I are gonna break kristen out of jail together, I should probably know your name.

Ava: Ava vitali.

Gwen: Vitali, as in…

Ava: The vitali crime family? Yes.

Gwen: My ex used to work for your organization.

Ava: Jake dimera.

Gwen: Right.

Ava: Not a fan.

Gwen: Yeah. Well, that’s something else we’ve got in common then.

Ava: Look, I don’t mean to be rude here, but I’m not here to make friends. I got a lot riding on this.

Gwen: That makes two of us because if I don’t pull through for miss dimera, she’s going to take away the one good thing that I have left in my miserable life.

Xander: And after I talked to you, I ran over to the pub, and I caught them. Sarah and rex were just about to make love, and I blew my stack. Sarah told me that she wanted him, not me, and well, she called off our wedding right there and then.

Susan: I’m so sorry. That just sounds awful.

Xander: Felt like I’d been hit in the gut by a cricket bat. But I got over it, finally. Met someone new, and I’m happy again, so I wanted to come over here and thank you for putting me right about sarah.

Susan: Okay, you’re welcome. I guess, I just don’t–i really don’t know what you’re talking… okay, hold on just a moment, please. When did all this happen? The phone call?

Xander: This past march.

Susan: All right, I get it.

Xander: Oh, so you do remember?

Susan: No, see I couldn’t because it wasn’t me. It was that mean, mean, mean kristen dimera. She’s the one who told you about your sarah. Serena: It’s my 3:10

Lucas: Is belle sure about marlena?

Allie: Sounds like it.

Lucas: My god, I can’t believe this; your mother would want to be here. She’d want to know. She hasn’t kept in touch with anybody, you or me, johnny, sidney, nobody.

Allie: She sent us that text saying she needed time to herself. That was over three months ago.

Lucas: I know, I know.

Allie: You worried about her?

Lucas: I am now.

Allie: Yeah, I am, too. Dad, what if something happened to her?

[Dramatic music]

Sami: Budge, you stupid key! No, no, no, no, no, no! No, no, now what? No.

Ava: Got anything to drink around here? Classy.

Gwen: Oh, excuse me, sorry. I didn’t realize I’d be serving tea to her majesty.

Ava: You know, I already got kristen out of one jam, but I guess no good deed goes unpunished.

Gwen: What’s she holding over your head then?

Ava: If kristen tells rafe what she knows about me, then I’m gonna lose him forever.

Gwen: Rafe, rafe? Rafe hernandez, the police commissioner? Oh, you are a brave one, aren’t you, love?

Ava: So what she got on you?

Gwen: Kristen has certain information. If it were to get back to the man I love, I would lose him for sure.

Ava: Well then, sweetie, it sounds like we better put our thinking caps on, or we’re both gonna be alone.

Susan: I know she told me to switch places with her so she could keep an eye on mr. Brady black and that little baby of hers, rachel, and that little thingamajiggy, the cheeky fool with the big eyes, that chloe lane thing. I don’t care. Anyway, she was out there free as a bird. And then I was stuck in that statesville prison.

Xander: I knew kristen had gone over the wall, but I didn’t know she was pretending to be you.

Susan: Yeah, well, nobody did.

Xander: When did the switch happen?

Susan: February.

Xander: So kristen was the one who called me.

Susan: I just told you that, honey. Okay, whatchu thinking?

Xander: That I need to pay kristen a little visit.

Susan: Oh, you’re gonna thank her?

Xander: Something like that.

[Tense music]

I’ve lost count of how many asthma attacks I’ve had.

Abe: Thank you, you know, I called lani a couple of times, but she hasn’t picked up.

Eli: I don’t think she knows how to talk to you just yet.

Abe: And that’s why I kept my distance. I can’t imagine what she’s going through.

Eli: That is some scheme tamara and olivia came up with. And lani’s furious; she’s not even taking tamara’s calls.

Abe: I know. I spoke to tammy last night.

Eli: How’d that go?

Abe: How do you think?

Eli: Not well.

Abe: That’s an understatement.

Kristen: So your aunt paulina is your real mother, and your biological father is…

Lani: A boyfriend who used to abuse her.

Kristen: Oh honey, I am so sorry, but I know how close you and abe are.

Lani: Yeah, even though i didn’t grow up with him.

Kristen: Hey, why did you think he was your father?

Lani: Tamara told me he was. Right after I found out, she said that they had a short affair around the time I was conceived. She said he was involved with someone else, so she never told him that she got pregnant.

Kristen: Well, I guess she thought of everything.

Lani: They did, all of them, her, paulina, her mom. They all cooked it up together. I mean, the second I met abe, there was this instant connection. He was the father that I always wanted, the father that I needed.

Kristen: Yeah, I know how much you missed him when we were back in the convent. And I know you hated lying to him about where you were and why you ran away.

Lani: Yeah, he was pretty upset about that, mostly because he just wanted to be there for me, like he has been there for me since the moment that I told him I was his daughter. And I have gone through so much since that day, and he’s given me so much love and support. I just–I cannot believe that this is happening. It was just yesterday I had the perfect father, and now I just–I don’t know. I just–it hurts so much.

Kristen: I know, I know.

Xander: I need to speak with kristen now.

Rafe: Well, she’s in there, but she’s with a visitor.

Xander: Fine, I’ll wait.

Rafe: Yeah, I don’t think there’s gonna be time for that. Prison van’s on its way here. She’s going back to statesville.

Xander: That conniving slag’s not going anywhere until I’ve had my say.

Ava: Got another one?

Gwen: Got any brilliant ideas?

Ava: Can you handle a gun?

Gwen: Not as well as a cop can and I don’t feel like dying, so how about you just cross that one off your list?

Ava: So what are your skillsets?

Gwen: I was a super nanny. Yeah, okay. Drugged my half-sister, put her in hospital for months, and then after that, I seduced her husband.

Ava: Those are impressive skills, but I’m not sure how it’s gonna help us get kristen out of jail.

Gwen: Drug the guards?

Ava: We don’t have time for that. Damn, I’m not losing rafe over this.

Gwen: Well, I’m not exactly keen on losing xander either.

Ava: Xander? Xander cook?

Gwen: Yes, you know him?

Ava: We were on a sort of rehab together in nashville. He was euphemistically referred to as the caretaker.

Gwen: I see.

Ava: You sure it wouldn’t be a bad thing to lose him?

Gwen: Oy, you mind your own business.

Ava: To each his own.

Gwen: Enough about me, what’s your skillset then exactly?

Ava: You don’t grow up in the vitali family without learning something. Got it.

Gwen: What?

Ava: Let’s go.

Gwen: You’re not gonna tell me–

Ava: Just grab your stuff, and let’s go. I’ll tell you on the way.

Sami: Okay. Okay. I still have time. I still have time to figure this out, okay. There’s just gotta be a way to get out of– a phone, he has that phone. Okay. Okay, okay. What? 911 can’t have a busy signal! Now it’s not even connecting. Come on, come on, you stupid… what numbers do I know by heart? I can’t call my mother. Who can I call?

Lucas: Marlena almost killed john and susan?

Allie: Yeah, that’s what I heard. She had him chained up in the dimera crypt.

Lucas: Oh, my…

Allie: Oh, my god.

Lucas: What, what?

Allie: Johnny, and chanel, and I were playing with a ouija board on halloween, and it told johnny that the devil was here in salem at the dimera crypt. And then johnny decided to go down to his family’s crypt, and grandma marlena was there.

Lucas: Oh, my god, I can’t believe this.

Allie: I mean, I’m just glad she didn’t do something bad to him.

Lucas: Well, thank god she didn’T. Who is it? Is it will or sydney?

Allie: No, it’s an unknown number. Hello?

Sami: Thank god you picked up–it’s me.

Allie: Mom? Where are you?

Align. Fast acting biotic


Abe: You know, I have to admit that I lost my cool with tamara.

Eli: Why wouldn’t you? She let you think that lani was your daughter when she knew damn well that was a lie.

Abe: It was one thing to keep paulina’s secret after they took the baby in.

Eli: Especially since there was an abusive boyfriend in the picture.

Abe: Right, right, what i don’t understand is why they let lani and me think we were father and daughter all those years.

Eli: Well, did you ask tamara to explain that?

Abe: She said the same thing that paulina said. You know, lani grew up, she became a cop. She decided she wanted to look for her dad. And she did the math and found out that I was the only man that tamara was involved with about the time that lani was conceived. She confronted tamara. Tamara let her think she was right ’cause she didn’t want her looking, find out exactly what kind of man her father was.

Eli: I get that part, I guess.

Abe: Tamara thought it was better for lani to gain a father than lose a mother.

Eli: Except now she feels like she’s lost both.

Kristen: Just because abe isn’t your birth father, the connection between the two of you is still there. As someone who was adopted, I know that the family ties are more than the blood.

Lani: Yeah, you’re right.

Kristen: So just tell me something. Have you guys talked since this all came out?

Lani: Mm-mm. He’s called but I just–i can’t bring myself to pick up.

Kristen: Okay, honey, honey, why not?

Lani: Because I’m pretty sure that he’s gonna want to see me and I just–I keep thinking that if I can avoid seeing him, I can pretend like–oh, I can pretend like none of this is real.

Kristen: Yes, yes, but, honey, you’re gonna have to see him at some point.

Lani: I know, I just don’t know if I’m strong enough.

Kristen: You know what? You are strong enough. You are. Because you and I–hey, look at me. You and I have faced a lot of heartbreak in our life, and we have always found a way to get through it. And guess what? Even though we have some new rotten things that we have to face, we are gonna get through this too, no matter what it takes. I promise.

Rafe: If you’re here to delay kristen’s transfer–

Xander: I wouldn’t lift a finger to help that woman. You have my word.

Rafe: Oh, and your word means so much to me.

Xander: I have to talk to kristen.

Rafe: Well, then find out when visiting days are at statesville.

Xander: This can’t wait. It’s about maggie’s daughter, sarah.

Rafe: What about her?

Xander: I can’t explain until after I’ve talked to kristen. I’m not leaving until I do. I promise you.

Rafe: I told you she’s in there with a visitor.

Lani: Thank you, rafe.

Rafe: Yeah, sure, lani.

Xander: So kristen’s all alone now, right?

I’ll let the commish know we’re here.

Ava: Excuse me, you guys are from statesville prison, right?

What do you care?

Ava: Hoping to have a word with you.

This is a restricted area. Get lost.

Gwen: Mm, I would not talk to her that way. Do you have any idea who she is?

Don’t know, don’t care. Now beat it.

Ava: I’m ava vitali of the vitali family. You know who they are, right?

Yeah, and?

Ava: And I know you’re here to pick up kristen dimera and take her to prison. I’m here to tell you it’s not gonna happen.

Allie: I am so relieved that you called, mom.

Sami: Allie, listen to me.

Allie: We have been so worried about you, and now something happened with grandma.

Sami: She’s been possessed. I know, okay? I know that already.

Allie: How did you–

Sami: Allie, listen to me. I am in deep trouble, and I need your help.

Allie: What have you done now?

Sami: Nothing. I was kidnapped.

Allie: Are you kidding?

Lucas: What did she say? What did she say?

Allie: She got kidnapped.

Lucas: She what? Give me the phone. Sami! Sami, what the hell is going on?

Ava: Now, listen carefully. When kristen dimera is placed in your custody, you’re not taking her to statesville. She’ll tell you where she wants to go. You do as she says.

Sorry, princess, but we don’t take orders from you.

Way I hear it, no one takes orders from you anymore.

Ava: I’ve put my cousin angelo in charge. You’d be very foolish to think I don’t have power in the family anymore. If I were you, I would not cross me.

You? You’re about as intimidating as a chihuahua.

Gwen: Yeah, I’m sure that’s what carmine merlino thought.

The guy who shot the mayor?

Gwen: That’s right, but he’s dead. And miss vitali here is the one who killed him. Stabbed him right in the heart.

See, I read it was self-defense.

Ava: Still dead, isn’t he?

Look, we don’t want any trouble.

Ava: Good, then do as I say, and you won’t regret it. I’ve got people looking in on your families right now, and soon, we’re gonna be very intimate. I’m gonna know the names of your kids, their teachers, soccer practice schedule, fun things like that. You know, I’d hate to have to ask my associate here to look in on your loved ones.


Ava: They call her the nanny because she knows how to put disobedient boys like you in their place. So what’s it gonna be, boys, hm? You gonna cooperate, or do I give my associate, the nanny, her orders?

Kristen: What is he doing here?

Rafe: We’re about to find out. Make it quick.

Xander: On my wedding day, last march, I got a call from one susan banks warning me that my sarah and rex brady were about to hook up. But it just came to my attention that it wasn’t susan that called me. It was you

Kristen: What if it was? Maybe I was trying to do you a favor.

Xander: Why? You despise me. You never lift a finger to help anyone else.

Rafe: He’s got that right.

Kristen: What do I get out of informing on sarah and rex brady?

Xander: I don’t know yet, but my gut tells me that you had a hand in her dumping me for rex.

Kristen: Oh, that is ridiculous. Not that I don’t think she did the right thing. I mean, my god, a doctor, you? No, no, I didn’t have any influence on her one way or another.

Xander: What about rex? Did you convince him to come to salem to seduce my fiancée?

Kristen: No.

Xander: I don’t believe you. I know there’s something you’re not telling me, kristen.

Rafe: Van’s here, time to go.

Kristen: Wait, just wait a minute. Since I’m heading back to prison, I might as well set the record straight. You see, there’s something you two need to know.

Lucas: Listen, you tell me exactly where you are.

Sami: I can’T. I’ve been locked in this god damn room for months.

Lucas: Who did this to you?

Sami: I don’t know, okay? All I see are guards, and they’re not very chatty. I finally managed to steal this cell phone off of one of them, but I tried to call my mom. She’s got her own problems right now.

Lucas: Yeah, yeah, I know. I just heard about it.

Sami: Listen, you have to help me. I called ej–

Lucas: What, that jackass refused to help you?

Sami: No, no, no, okay? The phone died before I could even talk to him, and then it’s charged again, but the guard, I knocked him out, and I’m really afraid of what he’s gonna do when he wakes up.

Lucas: All right, all right. Is there a map feature on that phone?

Sami: No, I don’t think so. I think it’s just a burner phone.

Lucas: Well, you’re gonna have to check the guard. Check his pocket, see if he’s got a smartphone.

Sami: Okay, hold on a second.


[Tense music]

It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on

Abe: Hello, look at you.

Eli: Look woke up in time just to say hi.

Abe: Hey, carver.

Eli: He likes a bottle of juice when he wakes up. You mind holding him while I grab ’em?

Abe: Oh, I would love to. I would love to. Here, little boy, yeah.

Eli: There we go.

Abe: So how was your nap, huh? How was your nap, yeah?

Eli: Don’t be surprised if he tries to hop out of your lap. He and jules are into everything nowadays.

Abe: Yeah, you wanna walk, don’t you? Yes, you do. You know, why shouldn’t you? You’re almost a year old. Oh, yes, yes. Ah.

Eli: You okay?

Abe: Yeah, yeah. You know, I just… well, are you thinking of changing his name?

Eli: Hell no. Abe, I’ll tell you the same thing I told theo. He’s still their uncle, and you are still their grandfather. Even though theo is gonna be in south africa, we’re gonna make sure that the twins video chat him.

Abe: Well, you know, theo’s gonna be here in salem as often as his job allows.

Eli: Well, he better because his little niece and nephew love him very much. Abe, you’re their grandfather, okay, nothing’s gonna change. You will be that as long as you’re on this planet.

Abe: Thank you. Yes, here you go. Giving you back to daddy, okay? Oh, I think I’d better go.

Eli: Okay.

Abe: All right.

Eli: Look, abe, just so you know, I still think that you are the greatest father-in-law a man could ever have.

Abe: Thank you.

Eli: Thank you.

Abe: Hey, you.

Eli: Can you say bye to grandfather?

Abe: Bye-bye.

Lani: Dad.

Kristen: You’re right. It was me who called you on your wedding day and told you about rex and sarah, but what you didn’t know–

Gwen: I’m sorry to interrupt. Hello.

Xander: Hi, what are you doing here?

Gwen: I’m here to see you.

Xander: How did you know I was here?

Gwen: Well, I was just passing by, I saw your car outside, and I thought maybe you’d gotten yourself into trouble.

Xander: No, I came to have a word with kristen.

Gwen: About what?

Kristen: Your boyfriend thinks that I had something to do with sarah horton leaving with rex brady.

Xander: And kristen just admitted that she had something to confess about.

Rafe: Okay, the van is waiting. It’s now or never.

[Tense music]

Kristen: My confession is that I wasn’t doing you a favor. You see, I took great joy in punching your little dream of happiness.

Xander: And that’s all you did, just make a call? You didn’t manipulate sarah into choosing rex over me?

Kristen: Nope. I was at the right place at the right time. I couldn’t have planned it better myself.

Lucas: Sami, are you there?

Sami: Lucas, lucas, you’re right, I searched him, and he’s got a smartphone.

Lucas: Okay. Okay, great. Go to maps.

Sami: Okay, okay. But it’s not loading.

Lucas: Calm down, relax. Don’t get excited. Just try to be patient, okay?

Sami: Easy for you to say. You weren’t locked up in a tiny room since august

Lucas: Wait, you’ve been held against your will this whole time?

Allie: Oh, my god, she wasn’t ghosting us. We should have looked for her.

Lucas: Stop, stop. It’s not your fault, stop it.

Sami: Okay, it’s stalling. I think it’s the reception.

Lucas: All right, just text whatever you can to allie’s phone, all right? Maybe it’ll show up.

Sami: Okay, okay. Okay, I’m sending it. Please go through. Please go through. Please go through. Please go through. Why give your family just ordinary eggs

Rafe: Hey, sorry for the delay, guys. She’s all yours.

Don’t worry, commissioner. We’ll take it from here.

Gwen: You haven’t said much.

Xander: I just don’t think kristen was telling me the truth back there. She hates me.

Gwen: But why would she go through so much trouble to break you and sarah? What does she get out of it?

Xander: Right, I know. It’s just, rex brady showed up out of the blue.

Gwen: Well, you said that rex and sarah were married, yes? So I don’t know. Maybe he found out about the wedding, and he decided that he didn’t want to lose her to someone else.

Xander: Hmm. And maybe she saw him and realized that she was on the rebound when she fell for me. One way or the other, she chose him, not me. And that’s all there is to it.

Ava: Hey, there. I was wondering if we could meet for dinner.

Rafe: That sounds like a plan, and by the way, I just turned your friend kristen over to the guard at statesville. She’s their problem now. Thank god.

Kristen: Thank you so much. That feels so much better.

So where to now, miss dimera?

Kristen: Ah, I haven’t decided yet. All I know is I wanna get as far away as possible from this godforsaken place.

[Soft music]

Lani: I didn’t know you were coming over today.

Abe: Well, I wanted to see how you were doing. Maybe it was a mistake.

Eli: You know, I think I hear jules waking up. I’m gonna…come on.

Abe: The last thing I wanna do is put more pressure on you. I just wanted you to know that I’m here whenever you’re ready.

Lani: No, wait. Please stay. I think it’s time that you and i had a chance to talk.

Sami: Have you gotten my location yet?

Lucas: No, no, not yet.

Sami: God, oh, god. This has to work. This has to work. This guy’s gonna wake up any minute, and I have no idea what he’s going to do to me.

Lucas: She’s freaking out right now.

Allie: Mom, dad is getting everything he can. You need to stay calm.

Sami: I am trying, dammit.

Lucas: Wait a minute. Wait a minute, I just got it. I got it.

Sami: Oh, thank god.

Lucas: Just hang on, sami. I’m on my way.
