[Elevator dings]

Paulina: You can’t run away from me, abe carver. You should know that by now.

[Phone rings]

Eli: Hey, john, how are you feeling?

John: Well, I’ll be better when I get an update on marlena. What do you got?

Eli: Uh, well, actually, we checked the security footage from my grandmother’s house, but there’s no indication of which direction she left. And there’s also been no sightings since–since she left there either. Let’s see here–yeah, we’ve interviewed close contacts, double patrols, but still nothing.

John: All right, look, I know your men are all over this, but they need to be aware that marlena can camouflage herself. She can change her shape, she can change her form.

Eli: O–okay?

Marlena: And force isn’t going to do them any good. Handcuffs aren’t going to hold her. Ask shawn, he found out the hard way.

Eli: Yeah, shawn filled me in, but–look, man, how are we supposed to bring marlena in? What do you want, us to douse her with holy water?

John: Look, I know this all sounds crazy, and you’re not prepared to deal with this, but who is? Let’s just find her first. We’ll figure the rest of it out, but we are running out of time.

[Knocking on door]

Ciara: Ben, what do we do?

Ben: The only thing we can do.

Marlena: No, no, no, please, stop, stop.

Ben: There is no way that it can be john.

Marlena: We don’t know that. We don’t know that for sure. Please, please, I’m begging you. Don’t open the door.

[Suspenseful music]

[Laughs nervously] Come on. It’s the middle of nowhere. It’s the middle of the winter. Just, please, please, don’t open the door.

[Knocking on door]

Ciara: Uh, well, it’s not john. It looks like a hiker.

Marlena: Well, but it could be somebody who–who’s with john. Don’t do it. Th–this could just be a trap.

Ben: Marlena, I promise you, I will not let–we will not let anything happen to you. But whoever’s on the other side of this door knows that we are in here, and he’s not going away.

Marlena: [Sighs]

Gabriel: Hi.

Ben: What can I do for you?

Brady: Oh, buddy, I wish i could’ve been there to see you score that winning goal. But you know I’m proud of you, right?

[Tense music] Good, good. Listen, hey, let’s video chat over the weekend. Is that good? All right. I love you too, buddy.

[Music builds]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Chloe: Hey, philip, uh, where are you? I’m back with the food, and, uh, you’re not here. No one even knew that you’d left. Um, where are you?

[Solemn music]

[Phone beeps]

Philip: Cheating bitch.

[Slow dramatic music]


Gabriel: Please, I need some water.

Ciara: Oh, please, come in, sit. Here you go.

[Soft music]

Ben: You weren’t kidding about being thirsty.

Gabriel: [Exhales, chuckles]

Ben: We don’t see too many people around this part of the woods.

Gabriel: That’s what draws me here. I come here every year for spiritual renewal. I intended to replenish my canteen at the bottom of the trailhead, but the stream seems to have been desecrated.

Ciara: Oh, uh, can I please refill your canteen?

Gabriel: Thank heaven for good samaritans.


Ben: We’re happy to help. I’m ben, by the way.

Ciara: Uh, ciara. Hey.

Gabriel: Gabriel.

Ciara: Gabriel? That is a very nice name. You know, my grandma caroline used to say a special prayer to saint gabriel.

Gabriel: My own mother named me for the archangel. [Chuckles]

It’s my 4:05 the-show-must-go-on

Philip: You’re eating without me?

Chloe: Hey! Where were you? I’m sorry, the food was getting cold.

Philip: Oh, I went to get you a present. I–I had to hit a couple of places before I found the right thing.

Chloe: Oh, present? Well, where is it?

Philip: It’s in my trunk.

Chloe: Oh, okay.

[Chuckles] Ooh, what–what is that smell?

Philip: It’s your present.

Chloe: My present? Is it manure?

Philip: Yep.

Chloe: [Laughs] That’s so romantic.

Philip: It’s for our tree. Uh, you said you wanted to see it. I thought I’d take you over there, and we’d give it some love.

Chloe: Okay, that sounds great, but what about dinner?

Philip: Well, like you said, it’s getting cold, so I was thinking I’ll take you out on the town, show you a night you’ll never forget. What do you say?

Chloe: I say that sounds like fun. Let’s do it.

[Slow tense music]

Steve: Whoa, whoa, whoa, buddy, what the hell? Where do you think you’re going?

John: I gotta find marlena!

Steve: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Okay, okay, the cops are on it.

John: They’re not. I talked to eli. They’ve got nothing, and my girl needs me, partner.

Steve: She does, and you know what that means? It means you’ve gotta take care of yourself, so she has a husband to come home to. All right? Hold on a second. Whoa! Get back in there. What do you think you’re doing?

John: Come on, man.

Steve: Hey, hey. Hydrate.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Steve: Come on.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Steve: There you go.

John: [Exhales]

Steve: That’s what your doctor kayla said you need. This and rest.

John: I’ll tell you what i need. I need some answers.

Steve: Okay, we’re going to get some.

John: All right, let’s start with you.

Steve: What? What about me?

John: How the hell did you find me in that crypt?

Steve: Your grandson johnny.

John: Excuse me?

Steve: I ran into johnny on thanksgiving, and he told me that he and allie on halloween found an old ouija board, and the ouija board told them that the devil was in salem, specifically in the dimera crypt. And he also mentioned that marlena was in there, dressed in a devil costume no less. Now, she wouldn’t let him in, but he didn’t think anything of it.

John: Mm. But you did.

Steve: I did.

John: [Chuckles]

Steve: Nothing about marlena was adding up, man. She was acting so strange, I was afraid maybe hattie was taking over her life again.

John: Ah, geez, man, what’s it coming to when hattie adams is the best-case scenario?

Steve: I’ve been trying to wrap my head around all this. Didn’t you exorcise marlena back then?

John: Yeah, I did.

Steve: Okay.

John: And I suppose-and I’m just–just guessing here, ’cause I wasn’t a real priest at the time, maybe the exorcism didn’t fully take?

Steve: Is that how it works?

John: I don’t know, man. I don’t know. I–I don’t know why the devil has decided to come back now, but if we knew what he wanted, I think we can figure out where marlena is right now.

Gabriel: It’s nice to meet you.

Ben: You too.

[Disquieting music]

Gabriel: And who might you be?

Marlena: Did john send you? Is that why you’re here?

Gabriel: Who’s john?

Ben: Uh, dr. Evans, you don’t have to worry. If john knew where we were right now, he’d be here himself.

Marlena: I’m just saying, you can’t be too careful.

Ciara: Well, I don’t know about the rest of you, but I am starving. Gabriel, would you like to stay for lunch?

Gabriel: I am famished, actually.

Ciara: Well, I am craving pimiento cheese and olives, but we’re just gonna have to settle for lunch meat and peanut butter.

Ben: Oh, some non-pregnant people food.

Ciara: Mm-hmm.

Gabriel: You’re with child? Congratulations.

Ciara: Aw, thank you.

Gabriel: When’s the blessed event?

Ciara: Uh, well, not for a few months.

Gabriel: That’s–that’s lovely and–and so unique.

Ciara: Oh, thank you. Uh, marlena actually gifted it to us. It’s supposed to help the angels watch over our baby.

Gabriel: What a thoughtful gift.

Paulina: I will stand here all day if I have to. You know that I will. Was it so hard? You here to see john black?

Abe: Yes, I am.

Paulina: Well, I just spoke with him myself.

Abe: Why?

Paulina: Because I danced with the devil and lived to tell the tale.

Abe: I beg your pardon?

Paulina: [Scoffs] How is it that the mayor of salem hasn’t heard? Marlena has been possessed by satan again. John, he just confirmed it.

Abe: Oh, my god. That explains that apb.

Paulina: Mm-hmm, and that explains what happened at our wedding. The devil, he wanted to come between us, and that’s just what he did.

Abe: You’re right. Lies come straight from the devil, and the lie started with you. If you’ll excuse me.

[Solemn music]

Paulina: Wait!

Lani: I understand the love that it took for you to commit to raise me. You pretty much saved auntie p’s life and probably mine too. And I get why you chose to keep her secret when I jumped to the conclusion that abe was my father. I get it…with my head. But my heart? The lies of it all these years? Everything that I thought that I knew about us?

[Sighs] I–I should go. Um, I’ll talk to you soon. Yeah, okay. I love you too.

[Door opens]


Eli: Baby, what’s wrong?

[Somber music]

[Exhales, sniffles]

Paulina: Abraham?

[Solemn music]

Yep, it’s me.

Abe: I see.

Paulina: And you, uh, need to move a hell of a lot faster than that if you’re going to outrun me, which, it doesn’t look like it’s going to happen even with that fine walking stick of yours, so, why don’t you take a load off and listen to what i have to say?

Abe: [Sighs] You have one minute.

Like many people with moderate to severe ulcerative colitis

Paulina: Abraham, I’m so very sorry.

Abe: I think you need to fast-forward to something i haven’t heard before.

Paulina: Fine. I’ll–I’ll do that.

[Solemn music]

So, when I made my decision with my mama to give my baby to tamara all those years ago, i never even knew you existed. I certainly didn’t know that I’d meet you and fall in love or that my lie would break your heart. I debated a million times whether or not to tell the truth, and in the end I–i decided that it would be–the kindest thing I could do was for you and lani–

Abe: To lie through your teeth?

Paulina: No–hey, now listen to me–

Abe: You have three seconds left.

Paulina: You were the best thing that’s ever happened to me, abraham carver, and I love you with my whole heart. Can you ever find it in your heart to forgive me?

Eli: Baby, what happened?

Lani: [Sighs] I just, um, talked to my mother. I mean, tamara. Where are the twins?

Eli: No, I–I ran into allie and henry at the park. She offered to babysit the twins for a while. She’s going to bring them back later.

Lani: Oh, okay, that was really sweet of her.

Eli: Yeah, it was.

Lani: You put their–their car seats in her car?

Eli: Yes, I–I did. Look, uh, are you going to tell me? What did tamara say to get you so upset?

Lani: That she loves me, even though my whole life has been a lie.

Eli: I hope you know that that love is real.

Lani: I do. It’s just–it’s just I’m not the only one who’s gotten hurt. I spread that lie to abe, that he was my father. And now his heart is broken too.

Eli: What happened between you two after I left?

[Soft music]

Lani: He was wonderful. Of course he was. He’s just so wonderful. And he said that I will always be his daughter, and nothing will ever change that.

Eli: I hope you know that he means it, lani.

Lani: Kristen said the same thing.

Eli: Kri–what–you saw kristen?

Lani: Yeah, I went down to the station while you were watching jules and carver. I wanted to say goodbye before they took her to statesville. And I know you are not crazy about our friendship, but I–I– just–

Eli: Baby, I got a call from the warden. Kristen never showed up to the prison.

[Ominous music]

Philip: Looking forward to the day our little tree gets big enough and we carve our initials into it.

Chloe: Me too.

Philip: Oh, my god.

Chloe: Where’s the tree?

Philip: It looks like someone’s ripped it out of the ground.

Chloe: Who would do something like that?

Do you think maybe it was an accident?

Philip: What’s this?

It’s inscribed. Belongs to…

Chloe: Brady.

John: [Groans]

Steve: No more nonsense.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah.

Steve: Relax.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah.

Steve: Now, what you said about finding out what the devil wants, you have any ideas?

John: Yeah, I’ve been giving that a lot of thought, partner. I’m not sure I’m any closer to an answer, though. No discernible patterns, just– just a lot of random widespread chaos and misery seems to be part of the plan.

Steve: Well, that’s a given. Anything specific?

John: Well, I’ll give you one off. Brady went to marlena to confide in her that he’s got feelings for chloe, so her advice to him was take her to bed, more accurately take her on top of the basic black conference table.

Steve: [Laughs] That was her advice? Isn’t chloe with philip?

John: Exactly. So, you see, just stirring up trouble. But, you know what, I’m starting to think that this is just nothing but a sideshow to whatever the devil’s big plan is. That’s why we gotta find doc, so we can stop it before it’s too late.

Steve: Well, if the devil can turn susan banks into a cat and marlena into a panther, how are we going to find her?

John: Well, here’s the thing, the beast needs marlena. The parasite needs a host. And yeah, he can use other bodies, but he has to keep coming back to marlena, until he either gets what he wants or we stop him.

Steve: So, aside from an exorcism, how the hell did you send him back the last time?

John: Faith, prayer, love, a lot of help from–from friends and family and–and father francis and gabriel.

Steve: Who’s that?

John: Gabriel. He was, uh–he was a guy that i met, a guy that…

[Soft music]

Turned out to be my guardian angel.

Steve: A real live angel, huh? Wings? Flaming sword? The whole thing?

John: Denim. A regular guy.

Steve: So, what does this regular guy do? He go mano a mano with the devil for you?

John: Nah, nothing like that. In fact, he said he couldn’t tell me what I was fighting or how to fight, but I know for a fact that he was watching over me the whole time, and he was the one who gave me the strength that I needed.

[Chuckles] So, where are you now, gabriel?

Ciara: Lunch should be ready soon.

[Soft tense music]

Gabriel: Lovely day, isn’t it?

Devil: He sent you, didn’t he?

Gabriel: God? Yes. It’s not the first time. I helped john defeat you 25 years ago, and he will do it again.

[Foreboding music]

Serena: It’s my 3:10

Abe: No. I don’t forgive you.

[Soft guitar music]

Paulina: Then you’d be calling your friend john black a liar.

Abe: What are you talking about?

Paulina: Well, I might have discussed our situation with john, and he told me that you’re one of the most forgiving people he’s ever known.

Abe: I haven’t talked to john about this. He doesn’t know how I feel.

Paulina: Well, I’m sorry if I’m telling tales out of school, but, uh, he told me that your wife, your late wife, god rest her soul, she pulled her own share of shenanigans, and not to speak ill of the dead–

Abe: Then don’T. Lexie was the love of my life.

Paulina: And I’m not. I know that. And believe me, I’m under no delusion that I’m the next lexie carver. I’m the one and only me. I go big or I go home.

Abe: No one ever accused you of not going for what you want, the rest of us be damned.

Paulina: Lani’s bio-daddy made me feel small, ashamed, trapped. I fought for my life, my soul, my spirit, so that I would never be in that place again and neither would lani. And I’m damn proud I fought my way out, and I’m even prouder that I was able to give my little girl the best possible life I could. God was kind. He gave me love again and my baby chanel. When I lost her father, I–i accepted life alone. Then, a bolt out of the blue, and you came along.

[Sighs] I met the best man I had ever known. And I took that lie to what we had, and I lost you and both my daughters. Now that–that takes true talent.

Abe: Yes. Yes, it does. So, if you’ll excuse me.

Paulina: Abraham, abraham, I, uh, gave you your daughter, then I took her away, but would it have been better if you didn’t have her at all?

Abe: No, of course not. I love her.

Paulina: And lani feels the same way about you. You never disappointed her. You never lied to her. You’ve never been anything but wise and honorable and loving. Lani feels that she can’t count on me or my sister or my mama. Lord knows when she’ll ever trust us again. But you, thank god she has you. Now, no matter what, whatever goes on between us, whether it’s over or not, please, please, never turn your back on her.

[Dramatic string music]

Devil: I’ve always hated that about you and your type, that holier-than-thou thing, as if there’s anything you can do. You’re not allowed to interfere in human affairs.

Gabriel: I can let you know you’re being watched.

[Dark ambient music]

I know you want that baby, and I know why.

Devil: And you can’t say a word to them.

Gabriel: I cannot warn them of the threat you pose, but i assure you, god is not going to allow any harm to come to that child.

Devil: I wouldn’t get too cocky if I were you. I don’t know if you’ve notice, but my power has grown. Take a look around, gabe. The world is in chaos. Disease, war, brother against brother, and so much of it in the name of your boss. So, threaten me all you want. I’m feeling pretty good about my chances.

Gabriel: Only because you fail to see the immense power of the hope, the faith, the light that good people like ben and ciara, the world over, give life to every day. That’s where god’s strength comes from and why he will always be more powerful than you, and that’s why love will prevail.

Philip: This explains it. It must have been brady who tore our tree out of the ground.

Chloe: It doesn’t make any sense. Why would he do that?

Philip: Because he’s jealous of us, chloe. He wants you all to himself, and he can’t stand the fact that you chose me. Think about it. His anger, paranoia, his jealousy that he accuses me of? No, he’s been projecting all of it, trying to make me the bad guy.

Chloe: Look, I know that there were some issues in the beginning, but ever since brady understood that I’m with you, he’s been nothing but respectful of our relationship.

Philip: You’re defending him?

Chloe: Phil, come on. Brady could not do something like this. He would–he would never do something so juvenile.

Philip: This is his watch, chloe. What more evidence do you need?

Chloe: I–it’s–it’s weird, okay? I just ran into brady at the pub, and he was wearing this watch.

Philip: Oh, so you just happened to run into him at the pub and you just happened to notice his watch?

Chloe: I work with the guy every day, and I used to be married to him at one point. I know he only takes this off if he’s getting in the shower or getting into bed.

Philip: So, if you know him so well and you think he’s such a great guy, how do you explain this?

Chloe: I can’T.

Philip: You know what i think? I think you ran into your ex-husband when you were picking up dinner, a romantic dinner for two, and I think that bastard flipped out and came straight here.

Chloe: To rip out our tree?

Philip: Isn’t it obvious?

Chloe: No, brady was picking up dinner to bring to his father who’s in the hospital. I’m sure he’s there right now.

Philip: Or maybe he lied to you. You ever think about that? Or is he too damn perfect to lie?

Chloe: Okay, I don’t know what’s gotten into you, but I’m gonna prove you wrong.

Philip: Where are you going?

Chloe: To the hospital to straighten this all out.

Philip: Yeah, well, good luck with that. I don’t think you’re gonna find brady there.

Chloe: I guess we’ll see.

Philip: I’m gonna report this vandalism to park service.

[Tense percussive music]


Hi susan! Honey?

Lani: Kristen never made it to statesville? What happened?

Eli: I don’t know. I got a call on my way home. The van, it just seems to vanish into thin air. We have units searching, but… lani, either there’s been an accident or–

Lani: Or–or–or kristen escaped. You don’t think I had anything to do with it, do you? Because I swear I didn’T. We–we had a nice conversation. We said our goodbyes. Then I left. That’s it.

Eli: I believe you.

Lani: You know what, I think I have an idea of where kristen might have gone.

Abe: I’ve spoken to lani, and she knows that she is my daughter in every way that matters. I am so grateful and blessed to have her in my life. Nothing will ever change between us.

Paulina: No. Thank god for that. Well, abraham, do you think there’s–is there any chance for us?

[Soft music]

Abraham: Just like I can’t turn off my love for lani– god knows–not that I would ever want to–I can’t turn off–can’t turn it off for you either.

Paulina: What? What–what are you saying? Are–are you–you saying…

Abe: Oh, god, help me. I still love you.

Ben: Lunch is served.

Ciara: Mmm, I’m sorry for it being such a basic meal.

Gabriel: It’s always lovely to break bread with fellow travelers. Shall we say grace? Marlena, would you like to do the honors?

[Haunting music]

Trelegy for copd.

Paulina: You still love me? Oh, abraham…

[Poignant music]

Abe: This is–this is very different than being able to trust you again. This isn’t the first time that you have told me a life-altering lie, and this one is bigger and more appalling than the last. At least it wasn’t about greed this time. I…

I–I–I just can’t put–I don’t know that I can put… my heart at risk again.

Paulina: But you love me. Now we can work on the trust, right? Tell me, abraham. Tell me, is–is there something I can do, whatever it is, whatever it takes, to–to help you trust me again?

Lani: Kristen tried to take rachel and run the last time she escaped from statesville. I’m guessing this is the first place she would come to.

Eli: Yeah, especially since john and marlena are not around, it’d be easy for kristen to get in and out with her daughter.

Lani: Let’s just hope we’re not too late.

Eli: Police! Open up!

Steve: Okay, partner, so, what is our next move?

John: Well, eli said that his men reached out to all of marlena’s contacts. Nothing there. Nothing on security footage, no sightings anywhere.

Steve: So, we need to take it to the next level. We need to supercharge this bad boy.

John: That’s a fact.

[Knocking on door]


Chloe: Hi.

John: Hey.

Chloe: Hey, sorry to interrupt.

John: No, no, not at all. Come on in.

Chloe: I’m glad to see that you’re feeling better.

John: Yeah, almost perfect.

Chloe: [Chuckles]

Steve: Yeah, emphasis on the “almost.”

Chloe: Mm. Uh, did, uh, brady drop off your food already?

John: Nah, not yet, and if he doesn’t get here soon, that chowder’s going to be stone cold.

Chloe: Maybe philip was right.

John: What was that?

Chloe: Uh–uh, nothing. I’m sorry, I actually have to run.

John: Thanks for dropping in. Take care.

Steve: Bye.

John: [Scoffs]

[Door closes]

[Solemn music]

Philip: [Grunts]

Chloe: Brady, seriously, I mean it. You cannot tell anybody what happened here last night. I mean–

Brady: [Stammers] I know what you mean. I know. You’re referring to the sex that happened on the conference table. Okay, listen, I’m–I am not gonna tell a soul about it. It’ll be our secret, okay?

Chloe: When brady told me what you and lucas saw, I just– I assumed that you were going to just fly into another jealous rage, and when you didn’t mention anything, I was relieved. I took it as a sign that you finally trust me.

Philip: I’ve learned my lesson, chloe. I know how important trust is in a relationship. Once it’s broken, it’s all over.

If I can’t have chloe, you can’t either! You son of a bitch!

Why give your family just ordinary eggs

Abe: There’s nothing you can do, paulina. I just need time.

Paulina: Okay, I’ll–I’ll– you just–you take all the time, all the time that you need. I’m just–I’ll just keep on loving you, and I’ll be right here whenever you’re ready. I’ll just–I’ll–I’ll wait forever.

Abe: I have to go.

Paulina: Well, thanks. Thanks for hearing me out. You know, it’s all I can ask.

[Poignant music]

Marlena: Of course. I’d be delighted to say grace.

Gabriel: Shall we join hands?

[Ominous music]

Marlena: [Clears throat]

Bless us, oh lord, for these thy gifts which we are about to receive from thy bounty, through christ, our lord. Amen.

All: Amen.

Eli: Anything?

Lani: Nothing. You?

Eli: No, but I just scared the living daylights out of rachel’s babysitter.

Lani: [Exhales] Thank god. Rachel was here.

Eli: They’re napping, but the sitter said there’s no sign of kristen or brady for that matter.

[Soft solemn music]

Steve: Nothing?

John: No, brady’s not answering. I don’t like it. It’s not like him to bail.

Steve: Well, come on, he’s a busy guy, isn’t he? Yeah, he’s, uh–you know, something might have come up with rachel or the job. Hey, his ex is on her way to prison today. He probably just got sidetracked.

John: Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah. I’m sure that’s it, yeah.

Steve: Hey, don’t let your imagination run wild. I’m sure brady’s just fine.

Chloe: Oh–oh, my god. Oh, my god, brady! Brady! Brady, brady, wake up. Brady, wake up.
