Beginning is missing due to news interruption; we’ll have it up soon.
Philip: You share every intimate detail of your life with me, chloe?
Abe: Thank you.
Lani: You’re welcome.
Abe: You know, I was starting to think you were avoiding me.
Lani: I was. I didn’t know how to face you.
Abe: And why on earth would you have trouble facing me?
Lani: Because all of this is my fault.
Abe: You know, there is plenty of blame to go around, and none of it should land on you.
Lani: I’m the one who jumped to the conclusion that you were my father just because you dated tamara around the time I was conceived.
Abe: Well, that’s a reasonable conclusion.
Lani: Yeah, but it was the wrong one. And for the life of me, I cannot–I don’t know why my mother–why tamara let me believe a lie. I bet you wish I’d never come to salem looking for you.
Abe: You would lose that bet. Learning that you were my daughter is one of the best things that ever happened to me.
Brady: I don’t even believe what you’re telling me right now. Marlena got violent at the horton thanksgiving dinner?
John: How many times do I have to say this? It’s not doc. Satan is the one that’s making her do all those things.
Brady: Okay, but–
Paulina: Then– then it’s true? Dr. Marlena evans is possessed by the devil?
Ben: I promise you, nobody followed us. John is not gonna find you here. Sit down.
Marlena: Is everything all right?
Ciara: Actually no. Something here is very wrong.
As a professional bull-rider
Ben: What is it? Is it the baby?
Ciara: No. No, the baby’s fine. It’s just the way you’ve been acting–staring out the window, jumping at every sound.
Marlena: Well, I’m very, very concerned about what john could do to me if he found me. Is that what’s upsetting to you?
Ciara: Yeah, I guess that’s it. It’s just I’m having a very hard time believing that the john black that I saw is the same man that I’ve known since I was a child. I can’t believe that he’s some kind of monster. Even though I saw the way john acted and it terrified me, I can’t reconcile that with the wonderful man I’ve known my entire life. It’s like it was someone else who came to the apartment, not john black.
Marlena as john: Bitch.
Marlena: I understand. I mean, it must be very confusing, especially if you haven’t seen john behave that way before. But trust me. You both have to trust me. My husband is a very, very dangerous man.
Maggie: Need I remind you that you’re the reason that brady is even in chloe’s orbit again? Have you forgotten that you’re the one who asked your grandson to get close to her?
Victor: I just wanted to get her claws out of philip. I certainly didn’t expect brady was gonna fall for that caterwauling streetwalker again.
Maggie: And what is it I say when–when you try to meddle in other people’s lives?
Maggie: Precisely. And when you chose not to take my advice– now your son and your grandson are enamored yet again with a woman you can’t stand.
Chloe: I don’t know what you mean about “every intimate detail,” but I am open with you about most things.
Philip: Most things.
Chloe: Yeah, like the most important things, the things that are the deepest part of my soul. I wanna share them with you, but you know what? You don’t let me in. You don’t make it easy, and that has to change if this relationship is gonna work.
Philip: You’re telling me that I haven’t been treating my girlfriend very well.
Chloe: Well, I am glad that your ears work.
Philip: I’m sorry about this funk that I’ve been in. I’ve just–I’ve had so much on my mind.
Chloe: I know, but let’s get you out of this stuffy room, and I don’t know, get you some fresh air.
Philip: I’m sorry. I’m just–I’m not in the mood.
Chloe: Okay, so you’re not in the mood for the great outdoors, but how about I drag you down into the kitchen and make you some real food? Because sitting around here and moping and eating junk is not gonna be good for your mood.
Philip: I don’t want to go downstairs. I don’t want to run into victor or maggie.
Chloe: Okay, so you don’t wanna go anywhere, you don’t wanna go to a restaurant. Then, how about I go to a restaurant, pick up some takeout, and we can come back here and do some of that share, share, sharing that you agreed to do?
Philip: That sounds like a great idea.
Philip: And by the time you get back, I and this place will be very clean.
Chloe: Oh, I like that.
Philip: You sure you wanna do that before I’ve showered?
Chloe: Yeah, I’m sure.
Philip: I have the best girlfriend ever. You always take such good care of me.
Chloe: You better believe it.
Philip: You couldn’t wait to get out of here, could you? You and your false concern. So go ahead, chloe. Go have sex with brady and be the whore my father always said you were.
Lani: She’s been calling me constantly since the wedding. The almost-wedding.
[Button beeps] Big mama probably told her everything that happened.
Abe: And in better detail, I’m sure.
Lani: I just keep sending her to voicemail. I can’t talk to her. I mean, what is there even to say?
Abe: You know I–I talked to your mother. Um, to tamara. She never meant to deceive you. She was just trying to help paulina out of a bad situation.
Lani: [Sighs] I don’t get how you can be so understanding. She didn’t just deceive me for my entire life. She turned your life upside-down, and you didn’t deserve any of this.
Abe: Neither did you. And I am upset with her too.
Lani: [Scoffs] Well, I am more than just upset. Tamara and paulina, they– they let me fall in love with this family– with you, with theo– and they knew all along that I didn’t share one drop of your blood.
Abe: Lani, lani.
Lani: No, if she– if she would have been– if she would have told me the truth when I asked if you were my father, none of this would have happened. Instead, the woman that I thought was my mother, she let me move to salem and form these connections that aren’t even real.
Abe: Who says our bonds aren’t real?
Lani: [Sobbing] Are you one of the millions of americans
Victor: Is it too much to ask that the men in my family come home with suitable mates?
Maggie: And why are you the arbiter of who is a suitable mate? Not to mention the kiriakis men aren’t exactly a walk in the park to deal with.
Victor: [Chuckles] Perhaps not. I happen to have found the– the last good woman in salem who, for some reason, saw fit to put up with the likes of this kiriakis man.
Maggie: Up to a point. I am still quite cross with you, though, victor, for meddling yet again in your kids’ love lives.
Victor: Oh, come on. Give me a break, would you? I mean, when both philip and brady are enamored with chloe lane.
Maggie: It’s none of your business, victor.
Victor: So has brady got it bad for that stupid woman?
Maggie: None of your business.
Victor: I’ll take that as a yes. But he understands that there’s no chance for a future with her, doesn’t he? Doesn’t he?
Maggie: [Sighs] Actually, I do not think he understands that. In fact, brady told me that he thought that he and chloe– they could be happy together, if only philip weren’t in the in the way.
Ciara: The man that john black has apparently become, he’s not only a danger to you, but he is a danger to everyone else around him.
Marlena: You see that now?
Ciara: Yes, yes. And that’s why I think the best thing that we can do is to call the police and let them know what’s going on–
Marlena: No, no! No. We’ve talked about this already. Come on. I’ve told you this before. John was a cop. You know, he was on the force, and you know how they all stick together. They cover for each other. All that will happen is that john will get some– a slap on the wrist, and then he’ll be even angrier when he comes after me.
Ciara: I see why you think that, but there is no way that shawn would let anything bad happen to his mother-in-law.
Marlena: And you see that I can’t take that risk.
Ciara: I’m sorry, dr. Evans, but I can. I trust that shawn is going to make the right decision.
Marlena: No! No, no. You can’t do that.
John: You’re saying you actually called the devil a bitch?
Paulina: [Chuckles] Right to her– well, its face. And the devil called me one right back. It got pretty ugly, that’s for sure.
John: Paulina, you are a lucky woman. I’m glad marlena didn’t really hurt you.
Paulina: Mm, I wouldn’t say that. Now, your wife, she may not have left a visible scar, but she sure–she took a wrecking ball to my life.
Abe: Please, sit down. Let me–let me tell you a story.
Lani: Mm, I am too old for fairytales.
Abe: Just humor me, please.
Lani: Okay. Let’s hear the story.
Abe: So… once upon a time, I had a–a best friend, my partner, roman brady, who died suddenly working on a case to bring down stefano dimera.
Lani: What? I–I don’t understand. Are you–you–you’re saying that roman died?
Abe: We were all devastated when we lost him. And a few years later, an amnesiac showed up in town named john black. Well, to make a very long story very short, all of us who loved roman were eventually led to believe that he and john black were one and the same.
Lani: Oh, my lord, wh–
Abe: I had my partner back. My brother and my best friend. Well, about half a decade passed and we found out that john black wasn’t roman after all, that he had been held captive by stefano dimera all those years.
Lani: So when roman came back–
Abe: We were–we were shocked and–and delighted by roman’s return, but that–that didn’t lessen our–didn’t lessen our love and commitment to john black. The heart doesn’t work that way.
Lani: Oh, at least yours doesn’T.
Abe: Dna didn’t matter. Only the love did. And as far as I’m concerned, you are now and you always will be my daughter.
Lani: [Sighs deeply]
[Chuckles] Come here. The airport can be a real challenge for new homeowners
Marlena: I’m sorry for grabbing your phone. I’m–I’m just so on edge.
Ben: Oh, I’m sure you are. You’ve been living in fear for months.
Ciara: And wouldn’t it be better to end it all now instead of running away for the rest of your life?
Ben: Well, that’s not our choice to make, ciara. It’s hers. Don’t worry. We’re not gonna call anybody.
Marlena: Thank you. Thank you for your understanding and your compassion.
Ben: Besides, it’s–cell service is terrible out here.
Marlena: So we all agree that nobody is making any phone calls, hmm?
Ciara: You know, maybe the isolation is really wonderful when we were here reconnecting, but I don’t really think it’s a great idea now. I mean, what if something happens to the baby? I am pregnant, after all.
Marlena: You know what? Everything is going to be fine. Just fine. And if anything unexpected happens, I’m a doctor. I can take care of you. So everything is gonna be perfect, with you and your precious baby. I’ll see to it.
John: Paulina, you have to know that–that marlena would–would never reveal anything you told her if she was in her right mind. I mean, she views breaking patient-doctor confidentiality a cardinal sin.
Paulina: Hmm, so to speak. But this–this devil situation is beyond incredible. But I do believe you, john.
John: Thank you, because if I hadn’t lived through this before, I wouldn’t believe it myself.
Paulina: Well, it sounds like I should have done more research before I moved to salem. And I wish I really could have known what marlena was dealing with before I gave the devil ammunition to just blow my family to smithereens, especially my relationship with abe. I don’t know. You know, I don’t think– I don’t think he’ll ever forgive me for what I did.
John: Well, I don’t know about that. I’ve known abraham for a very long time. He’s one of the most forgiving men I have ever met.
Lani: [Sighs] Are you sure that you feel this way?
Abe: Of course, I’m sure. You know you’re my daughter in every way that counts. And as for my grandchildren, don’t you even think about keeping them away from me because come hell, high water, fire, flood, or storm, they are mine,
[Laughter] Just like you’re mine. Biology be damned. You know, I–I just can’t excuse what paulina, tamara, and olivia did. I mean, I’m trying to– trying to manage my anger at being deceived for so long, but I–I can understand the choice they made.
Lani: I can too, but up to a point.
[Sighs] I do empathize with what aunt– with what paulina went through, I really do, but I can’t forgive her. I mean, she lied to us all. She hurt us too much.
Victor: Are you trying to get me to take another blood pressure pill, maggie? Brady imagining a future with chloe lane of all people?
Maggie: The possibility of a future. But he knows that as long as she’s with philip, that possibility is remote.
Victor: You don’t think he’d do anything to hurt philip, do you?
Maggie: Well, of course not. Brady would never hurt philip or anyone else. I mean, he–he was just letting off steam.
Victor: Well, let’s–let’s hope that’s all he was doing.
Maggie: Oh, you mean instead of drinking his emotions away?
Victor: No, I mean something far worse. You and I both know, maggie, even a good man can be driven by jealousy to the darkest of places.
Brady: Out of all the irish pubs in the world, she had to walk out of mine. My nunormal?
Brady: My apologies for the “casablanca” misquote.
Chloe: Ah, all is forgiven.
Brady: Yeah. I thought you’d be at the hospital with your dad.
Brady: Well, he sent me for takeout.
Chloe: Oh, well, great minds.
Chloe: How’s he holding up?
Brady: As good as can be expected, chloe. I mean, considering that his wife is running around with some kind of a demon inside of her.
Chloe: [Sighs] Yeah, okay. Well, give him my love, all right?
Brady: Of course, of course.
Chloe: Yeah, I should get going. Philip is expecting me, so. Bye, brady.
Brady: Bye. Chloe, we’ll always have the brady pub.
[Exhales] How’s my tater tot doing? Hi, buddy. Wh–what? You’re kidding me. You won the championship game? Are you–are you serious? Oh, I’m not surprised given what a great player you are. Hey, do me a favor. Have your mother send me a video, okay?
John: I don’t know how much you know about abe’s late wife, lexie.
Paulina: Only what abe told me. You know, she was the love of his life, theo’s mother, a doctor, and a cop. Pillar of the community. Talk about a hard act to follow.
John: Yeah, yeah, that’s all true, that’s all true. It’s only part of the story, though, because, well, she was far from perfect.
Paulina: Go on.
John: I don’t wanna speak out of turn.
Paulina: No, it’s your turn.
John: When lexie found out that stefano dimera was her father, she– well, she wrestled with some demons of her own.
Paulina: Don’t tell me lexie was possessed too?
John: No, no, no, no, only figuratively speaking.
Paulina: Oh. Oh, god, that’s a relief. Oh, you can’t–you can’t blame a sister for wanting some clarification in this town.
John: [Laughs] No blame, no blame. What I’m saying is, there were times when she yielded to her father’s influence and kind of bent to the dark side.
Paulina: Hmm, so her halo had a few dings in it?
John: What I’m trying to say is, with lexie, abe was able to forgive what most men would have considered unforgivable.
Paulina: Oh. Oh, and here, I was thinking that she fed the multitudes and turned tap water into champagne.
John: [Chuckles] Well, if abe was able to forgive lexie, I seriously wouldn’t rule out the possibility that he could find it in his heart to forgive you too.
Abe: You know, whether you can find it in your heart to forgive paulina and tamara, that’s between you and god.
Lani: And what about you? Are you going to forgive paulina?
Abe: That’s between her and me.
Lani: And what about god?
Abe: I’m sure he’ll be involved.
[Laughter] Are you feeling better now?
Lani: I am, thanks to you.
Abe: Aw. You know, I am– I’m feeling better. Thanks to you, much. So if you don’t mind, I have to–I have to go see an old friend. Aw. You–you take care, my daughter.
Lani: [Chuckles] I will.
[Sighs] Take care, my dad.
Abe: I love you.
Lani: I love you too, very much.
Marlena: If you’ll excuse me, I’d like to collect myself.
Ben: Of course, yeah. Uh… baby, what is it? You’re very tense.
Ciara: I don’t like this at all, ben.
Ben: None of us like it, ciara. I mean, we don’t have many other options.
Ciara: Okay, well, we have to at least call belle and tell her what’s going on. I mean, marlena and john are her parents. You can’t tell me that there’s nothing belle wouldn’t do to help her mom. Plus, shawn would never forgive me for keeping this from him. He would never forgive me.
Ben: And you may be right, but we’re not fighting dr. Evans on this.
Ciara: I know, but something just feels off here, ben, okay? Way off.
[Knocking on door] It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on
[Knocking on door]
Ciara: Ben, what do we do?
Ben: Only thing we can do.
Marlena: No, stop!
Ben: There’s no way it’s going to be john.
Marlena: You don’t that. You don’t know who it is. Oh, I’m begging you, please don’t open that door.
Lani: [Inhales deeply] Hi, mom.
Maggie: Oh, chloe.
Chloe: Oh, hi, maggie.
Maggie: Hi, darling. I didn’t know you were stopping by.
Chloe: Actually, it’s my second time here today. Philip asked me to get some takeout.
Maggie: Oh, that’s nice. A romantic little dinner for two.
Chloe: Uh, yeah, it would be, except he’s not in his room and I haven’t seen him. Do you–do you know where he is?
Brady: No, buddy, I wish I could have been there to see you score that winning goal. But you know I’m proud of you, right? Good, good. Listen, hey, let’s video chat over the weekend. Is that good? All right. I love you too, buddy.
