Xander: I’m impressed with us. How we quickly packed.

Gwen: Yeah. And whatever we forgot, we can always get at marks and sparks. They’ve got great bargains, right?

Rex: Whoa.

Xander: Rex brady.

Rex: Xander, hi. Who’s your friend?

Xander: None of your damn business. Where’s sarah?

Kayla: Sarah horton hasn’t worked at university hospital for several months. I’m happy to give you a referral to another doctor if you’d like. Okay, well, if I can help out in any way, let me know. Okay, bye. So any news about marlena’s whereabouts?

Steve: Yeah, I talked to shawn, he and john, ben, and ciara had a pretty dramatic run-in with her.

Kayla: What happened?

Steve: You’re not gonna believe it.

Kayla: Try me.

Steve: From what I understand, marlena told ben and ciara that john was physically abusing her.

Belle: Here. How are you feeling?

John: Okay, considering.

Belle: I think you should have let me take you to the hospital.

John: Izzy, I don’t need a doctor I just need to find your mother.

Belle: Yeah, I still can’t believe what I walked in on. I-I mean, I know it’s not mom, but just seeing her choking the life out of you and ben.

John: Yeah, sweetheart. I’m just glad you showed up when you did. You probably not only saved my life, but you saved ben and your husband’s too.

Belle: Dad, we have to get mom the help she needs before we lose her forever.

John: Yeah, we will, sweetheart, I guarantee it. So has there been any news on philip? Have they found a body yet?

Belle: What? No, not yet. I’m just praying that they don’T.

Kate: [Gasping]

[Dramatic music]

Philip: Hey, mom.

Kate: Oh, my. Thank god, you’re alive. You’re alive. Oh, my god.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Kate: Oh, my god. I can’t believe this. I can’t– we thought that you were murdered. Your father and i had you declared dead.

Philip: Something I’m sure dad’s been waiting to do since the day I was born.

Kate: Oh, don’t say that. Don’t say that. He was worried sick. We both were.

Philip: I find that hard to believe.

Kate: Well, I find all of this hard to believe, but you’re here. Oh, my god, you’re really here. Are you okay?

Philip: Don’t I look okay?

Kate: Yeah, you do. You look–you look perfect. How did you survive brady’s attack, philip?

Philip: Brady didn’t attack me. I went after him.

John: Okay, so it’s possible that philip’s still alive. That’s a very good thing.

Belle: Here. You need to support your head a little bit–

John: Sweetheart, my head is supported just fine by my neck. Will you just stop fussing about me, isabella? I’m gonna be a-okay as soon as we find your mother and bring her home safely.

Belle: Okay. Well, until mom is home and back to being herself, you’re just gonna have to accept a little extra tlc from your favorite daughter.

John: Yes–

[Light music]

Okay, whatever you say, sweetie.

[Phone ringing]

Belle: Hello? What? Okay, I’m on my way. I’ll meet you at the station.

John: What’s going on? Is that about your mother?

Belle: No, that was chloe. Brady’s been arrested.

John: [Sighs]

Kayla: I can understand ben believing the worst about john. Marlena saved his life. He is going to trust anything she says. But ciara, she has grown up with john and marlena.

Steve: Well, she was skeptical at first, but apparently, the devil made marlena morph to john, and then he threatened marlena right in front of them.

Kayla: Could this get any more horrifying?

Steve: Oh, it gets worse.

Kayla: I can’t imagine

Steve: The devil almost strangled ben and john to death without even touching them.

Kayla: Right, it is worse.

Rex: I hope he isn’t always this rude around you.

Xander: Answer my question, rex, where’s sarah?

Gwen: Xander.

Xander: You remember sarah, right? My fiancée? The one I found you in bed with on my wedding day. Just tell me where she is.

Rex: How the hell should I know where sarah is? I thought I was managing my moderate

Xander: What kinda game are you playing? You think this is funny?

Rex: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

Xander: Everyone knows sarah left town with you, rex.

Gwen: Xander, we really need to get to the airport now.

Xander: Just answer my question, what are you hiding?

Rex: Sorry, pal, I haven’t seen sarah in months. Not since right after your wedding, or non-wedding.

Xander: Wait, are you saying that you and sarah weren’t in doctors without borders as a team? That you aren’t still together?

Rex: I’m saying we never were.

John: I need to go down to the cop shop with you.

Belle: No, dad. Don’t–

John: I can’t just sit here and wait, sweetheart.

Belle: Okay. You just went ten rounds with the prince of darkness. It’s okay to rest. Mom’s gonna need you to be strong. I can take care of brady.

John: I know you can. All right, please just call me as soon as you know anything, okay?

Belle: Of course, I will. I will. Love you.

John: Oh, love you, sweetheart.

[Light tense music]

Chloe: Hey.

Brady: Hi.

Chloe: Are you okay?

Brady: Well, I’ve been booked for murder, so I think I’ve had better days.

Chloe: I’m so sorry that this is happening.

Brady: It’s okay. Hey, it’s okay. How’d you get in here, by the way?

Chloe: Eli said it was okay if I just stay in here for a little bit.

Brady: Guess I owe him one.

Chloe: Well, I called belle, and she’s on her way down here too.

Brady: Thank you. I don’t know what good my sister’s gonna do, though. I mean, trask just has it out for me to book me for philip’s murder.

Chloe: And you really can’t remember anything that happened that day?

Brady: Chloe, I wish we could go back down to that river because I was starting to have flashes of memory, but they’re all just fuzzy. They’re all just out of reach. They’re on the edge, you know.

Chloe: I wish that there was some way that I could help you.

Brady: Actually, my dad’s probably climbing the walls right now.

Chloe: Okay, do you want me to go check on him?

Brady: If you could just stop by, let him know that I’m okay. Because everything that’s going on with marlena, I don’t want him freaking out about my situation, you know?

Chloe: Yeah. Okay. I can head down there right now and see if he needs anything.

Brady: Thanks. And I, um– I’m very thankful to you just for everything, especially for believing in me.

Chloe: Of course. I mean, brady, I know who you are, and I know your heart. We’re gonna get through this, okay, together.

Kate: Honey, brady attacked you. The police found him with the bloody knife. He was covered in your blood. He blacked out from drinking.

Philip: Pretty convincing, right?

Kate: What’s convincing?

Philip: I mean, I don’t blame you for thinking that brady killed me. That means my plan was a success.

Kate: Okay, I don’t understand.

Philip: I staged the whole thing, mom. The knife, the blood, the booze I set it all up to make it look like brady had killed me.

Kate: You bastard! Serena: It’s my 3:10

Gwen: Xander, if we miss that flight, there’s gonna be a huge rebooking fee.

Xander: It’s fine, gwen, let it go.

Gwen: Let it go?

Xander: This doesn’t make any sense. After I found you guys together. After sarah called off the wedding, she told me that she was leaving salem with you.

Rex: Well, it didn’t take her long to change her mind.

Xander: She changed her mind?

Rex: I thought we were going away together. That after everything I did, all my mistakes that I finally had her back. But when it came time to leave, she jilted me. Same way she jilted you.

Philip: Was that really necessary?

Kate: Oh, you are lucky it’s just a slap because we’re right now I feel like I could kill you myself.

Philip: Well, that’s extreme.

Kate: Philip, do you have any idea of what you’ve put me through? What you put all of us through? Why the hell would you do something like this?

Philip: Isn’t it obvious? Brady and chloe were having an affair behind my back. I had to make him pay by framing him for my murder.

Kate: Oh. Oh, I see. Because you had to torture brady and chloe, you could put the rest of us through hell?

Philip: I didn’t do it to hurt you.

Kate: To hurt me? Do you realize that I thought you were dead?

Philip: That’s why I’m here. I came back to let you know that I’m okay.

Kate: Well, gee, maybe you should have just told me beforehand or better than that, perhaps you just shouldn’t have done it at all, philip.

Philip: Mom, I’m really sorry for what I put you through, but come on. Aren’t you even a little impressed with how I was able to pull it off?

Kate: Impressed?

Philip: Don’t you wanna know how I did it?

Kate: No. No, I don’t care.

Philip: Not even a little?

Kate: Okay. Okay, fine. Philip, why don’t you tell me how you did it?

Philip: Good. Because I’ve been dying to tell someone. Okay, I’ll start it right here. I followed brady to the pub. I stayed hidden while he and chloe chatted it up. The way they were looking at each other, like I didn’t exist. But after a little while, she left, and he got a phone call.

[Phone rings] Brady was out there all alone. He never saw me coming.

[Tense music]

Kate: So you knocked him out in front of the pub?

Philip: Yep.

Kate: Philip, do you realize that anyone could have seen you do that?

Philip: Relax, I was careful.

Kate: Oh, my god. Okay, so how did you get him down to the river covered in your blood?

Philip: Patience. The story of brady black’s downfall is just beginning.

Belle: How are they treating you in here?

Brady: Oh, just swell. I’m gonna leave a big five-star rating on bighouselliving.Com.

Belle: Okay, smart-ass, don’t take it out on me. You know you’re not the only one who’s dealing with drama.

Brady: What’s going on with you?

Belle: Oh, well, for starters, I had to knock my demonically possessed mother unconscious so she wouldn’t kill ben weston and shawn and dad. You know, the usual.

John: Chloe, come in, come in.

Chloe: Hi, thanks. I just came from seeing brady, and he wanted me to give you an update.

John: I appreciate that. You know, belle just went down there, but I haven’t heard from her yet. So how’s he holding up?

Chloe: Well, he’s good, considering the circumstances.

John: Yeah. Oh, excuse me. I’m sorry.

Chloe: Oh, my goodness. Are you okay?

John: Yeah, I’m fine. Just had a little run-in with el diablo.

Chloe: What?

John: Well, let’s just say that shawn, belle, ben, and I kind of mixed it up with marlena at the cabin. And as you can see, I’m a little bit worse for wear

Chloe: Well, do you need to see a doctor?

John: No, right now I’m more concerned about my son.

Chloe: Yeah, well, he’s concerned about you as well.

John: Of course, he is. So level with me here, what’s it looking like down there?

Chloe: Well, it seems like melinda trask is out for blood. So he’s kind of in a tough spot.

John: You know, how in the hell can trask even get an arrest warrant when we still don’t know if philip is alive or dead?

Kayla: Just when we thought it couldn’t get any more dangerous.

Steve: Sounds like john and the others are lucky to be alive. Most people don’t survive an encounter like that.

Kayla: Well, were they badly injured? I mean, how bad was the attack?

Steve: No, but you can imagine how shaken up they are to come face to face with a power like that. It makes you realize just how vulnerable you are.

Kayla: I just hope that you and john find marlena and get the help that she needs so that nobody else gets hurt.

Steve: I want that too, sweetness. More than anything.

[Romantic music]

Demon marlena: Now I know why they call you sweetness. Hi susan! Honey?

Kayla: Stay away from me.

Demon marlena: Really? After we shared that lovely, romantic kiss.

Kayla: You are sick.

Demon marlena: Really? I kinda thought we had some chemistry.

Kayla: What the hell do you want?

Demon marlena: Well, it’s a very big question. I want so many things.

Kayla: Why would you pretend to be my husband?

Demon marlena: Oh, come now. You’re a smart, respected doctor. Surely you can figure that out. What I can’t figure out is how long you would’ve let that kiss go.

Kayla: What have you done with steve?

Demon marlena: I haven’t done anything to your precious steve. Because it’s you I’m after.

[Eerie music]

Brady: Marlena would’ve killed them.

Belle: I don’t even wanna think about that. It was terrifying to see her like that. Just going crazy on the people that she loves.

Brady: Hey, hey, hey. You know, that’s not your mom.

Belle: Yeah, I know. I just can’t believe this is happening again. You know, we’ve heard the stories but to see it up close.

Brady: I know. Dad must be a wreck.

Belle: Yeah, which is actually why I’m here to see you. I know that the one thing that will help dad sleep easier is the getting you out from under this murder rap.

Brady: Yeah. Well, let’s talk about this. I mean, I wanna know how trask can have me arrested when all of this evidence is circumstantial?

Belle: Well, she was able to pull off something that changed everything.

Brady: They– you’re not telling me they found philip’s body. Is that what you’re saying?

Belle: No, no. But in the eyes of the law, philip kiriakis is dead.

John: Kate and victor had philip legally declared dead?

Chloe: Yes, they did.

John: All right. I can understand kate being out for blood here, but brady is victor’s grandson. Why the hell would he agree to something like that?

Chloe: I don’t know. I can’t understand why victor does anything that he does.

John: I mean, come on. He would’ve had to understand that she would use that against brady here. What the hell’s the matter with all them?

Chloe: John, it’s okay. Just try to stay calm, all right?

John: Calm down? How do you do that? My son was just arrested for murder, and my wife is running around out there with the damn devil in her.

Kate: I’ve had it with your cryptic riddles. Just tell me how you got him away from the pub without anyone seeing you.

Philip: See? You are interested in my story.

[Dramatic music]

Cheating bitch. Luckily for me, once I took brady down, it was just a matter of dragging that heavy carcass into the bushes.

Kate: You’re proud of yourself, aren’t you?

Philip: Hang on, hang on. I’m just getting to the good part.

While brady was lying there like a sack of old clothes, I fished his credit card out of his wallet. Then I went into the pub and charged a bunch of shots in brady’s name.

Kate: Okay. Wait, wait, wait, wait. The police said that brady had three times the legal limit of alcohol in his system.

Philip: Awfully high, right?

Kate: Yeah. Okay. So how did you manage that if you bought the alcohol that he supposedly got drunk on?

Philip: Oh, that was the easy part. I couldn’t exactly pour the liquor down his throat. So I cut out the middle man and injected the booze right into his system.

Kate: You could have killed him, philip.

Philip: That was a risk I was willing to take. People everywhere living with type 2 diabetes

Xander: Just to be clear, you’re saying you and sarah haven’t been together since you left.

Rex: What are you not getting about this? We were never together.

Xander: Just doesn’t make any sense.

Gwen: Xander, can we please go now?

Xander: Gwen, please wait.

Rex: Oh, look, it’s been real special reconnecting with you, sharing notes about how sarah dumped us both, but I really have to go. From the looks of things, so do you. So gwen, pleasure to meet you.

Gwen: Yeah, you too.

Xander: And I guess enjoy your trip.

Gwen: Right, well, now that that’s over, we really–

Xander: Rex, wait!

Gwen: What are you doing?

Xander: Rex, if sarah is not with you, then where the hell is she?

[Dramatic music]

Brady: So my grandfather sold me out. Can’t say I’m surprised.

Belle: I’m sure kate was the driving force.

Brady: Mm-hmm. That would explain why trask felt she had enough to arrest me.

Belle: Oh, that woman will do anything to get a conviction.

Brady: I know. So tell me, how do we avoid having me as another notch on her belt?

Belle: Well, I think we have to go through all the facts again. So let me just make sure I have this right. The very last thing you remember before waking up in the hospital is being at the pub, picking up lunch for dad.

Brady: Yeah, I was talking to chloe, ended my conversation with chloe. She walked away. I got a phone call, and then it’s blank. It’s blank. I started to feel like I was regaining some memories when I was down at the river with chloe earlier, but that was when trask showed up and arrested me.

Belle: Well, was it anything solid? Is it anything that would help your case?

Brady: No, it was sketchy. Belle, it was just voices, honestly.

Belle: Voices?

Brady: Yeah.

Belle: Yeah, well, trask is already trying to paint you as a rage-filled drunk. So I don’t think voices are gonna help.

Brady: I don’t think so either. I wish– I wish I had more to offer.

Belle: No, me too. We really need something concrete to help discredit all of the circumstantial evidence they have.

Brady: What, like, we need an eyewitness outside of the pub, right? Something like that?

Belle: Maybe we have a witness.

Brady: No, belle, who? There was nobody there that I remember.

Belle: No, not who, what. The pub has a security camera out front. Maybe it caught what happened to you after you blacked out.

Kate: You didn’t care if you killed brady.

Philip: I mean, I wasn’t trying to kill him. But don’t you see? I had to inject him with that booze. I needed him to be drunk enough to start sending those awful threatening text messages.

[Dramatic music]

I started to write angry, threatening texts from brady to me. And some of those messages I sent, or rather he sent, the guy sounded like a murderous psycho, the kind of person who’d stab his own uncle.

Kate: I’m almost afraid to ask what you did next.

Philip: The next step was stuffing brady into the trunk of my car. I drove him to that special place chloe and I planted our tree. The one to renew our love. What a joke, right? She was leading me on the whole time. So I left brady’s watch there for her to find later.

Kate: You said brady destroyed that tree in a jealous rage.

Philip: It wasn’t easy to make chloe believe that. I have to say.

Kate: Because brady didn’t destroy that tree, you did.

Philip: You know me so well, mother.

John: Oh, everybody is always trying to take care of me. I appreciate it, chloe, but I don’t need water. I just need my family to be safe.

Chloe: I know. And I don’t think I can really help you with the marlena situation, but I could try to convince kate to withdraw her request.

John: [Laughs] And you think you’re the right person for the job? I mean, no offense, but that woman hates your guts.

Chloe: And the feeling is mutual, but we both care about philip, and we wanna see whoever did this to philip be brought to justice.

John: And you don’t think that there is a possibility brady might have done it?

Chloe: In my heart, I think that he’s innocent.

John: So do I. I just wanted to hear you say it, chloe.

Chloe: And I’m not sure I can convince kate of that, but I’m gonna try.

John: My boy is lucky to have you in his corner.

Chloe: And brady’s been there for me so many times that I owe it him. He and philip. So I’m gonna pray for you and good luck to you, marlena. Okay?

John: Thank you. I’m gonna give my partner a call here and see if he’s got any word on her.

Chloe: Okay, good luck.

John: Thanks for stopping by, chloe.

Chloe: Thank you.

[Line ringing]

John: Come on, partner, pick it up.

Steve: This is steve johnson. Leave a message.

John: Well, better try kayla, again.

Kayla: Why are you here? What do you want with me?

Demon marlena: You know, ever since I came back to salem, you have been a thorn in my side. You, your ridiculous husband, your annoying nephew, and his oh so bothersome wife.

Kayla: Belle is marlena’s daughter, and she loves her with all her heart.

Demon marlena: Blah, blah, blah. I should have killed the lot of you when I figured out that you were trying to challenge my plans for john black and doug williams.

Kayla: John defeated you before, he’ll do it again.

Demon marlena: John is not as strong as he used to be. And I have become so much stronger.

Kayla: But he is not alone in the fight. I will not let you kill the people that I love.

Demon marlena: I’m not going to kill anybody. Yet. But I am gonna put shawn and belle through a fate worse than death. And you, my darling kayla, are gonna be the key to helping me do that.

Kayla: I won’t do anything to help you.

[Phone rings]

Demon marlena: Now you’ve really made me angry.

Nicorette knows, quitting

smoking is freaking hard.

Kate: Honestly, I just cannot believe that you would go this far to punish brady.

Philip: Like mother, like son.

Kate: The hell that’s supposed to mean?

Philip: What the hell does that mean? Should I call vivian to ask her how far you’ve gone in the name of vengeance?

Kate: Vivian is a monster.

Philip: What about jake and gabi? Wasn’t that long ago you were pretending to be blind to punish them for their betrayal?

Kate: Okay, not the same.

Philip: Why not?

Kate: Because I caused jake to lose his job at dimera. I didn’t frame a family member for murder by drugging them.

Philip: Damn it, mom. Why– why do you and dad always take everyone else’s side? Did I make a mistake in thinking I could trust you?

Kate: No, no, philip, no. I’m sorry. It’s okay. Just finish your story, okay? It’s okay.

Philip: Thank you. Now, where was I? Oh, yeah, so after chloe left, that’s when I dragged brady’s body to the riverside. I couldn’t get the image of them together out of my head. Kissing, laughing at me. So I took out the knife, and I cut myself with it.

Kate: You cut yourself?

Philip: I had to. It was the only way that I could get chloe and the police to believe that brady had murdered me. So I opened up a nice little gusher, and I smeared the blood all over the knife and all over brady. And I carefully tracked blood down to the riverside, threw my prosthetic leg into the middle of the river. Luckily for me, I kept my old one when I got my replacement a few years ago. Pretty brilliant, huh?

[Dramatic music]

Belle: Hey, you!

Rex: Belle, hi.

Belle: I heard you were back in town.

Rex: It’s so good to see you.

Belle: Yeah, you too. Hey, I’m really sorry about everything that’s going on with philip.

Rex: Oh, man. Thank you. Yeah. And I hear that you’re defending brady.

Belle: Yeah, I am. Actually, that’s why I’m here. I wanted to talk to your dad about checking out the surveillance footage from the night philip disappeared.

Rex: Yeah, um, my dad isn’t here.

Belle: Oh. Well, do you think you could help me find it?

Rex: Belle, I don’t know how he feels about– I mean, look, philip is my brother, and you’re defending the guy who might have killed him.

Belle: First of all, brady didn’t kill anyone. And it’s because philip is your brother that you should wanna help me find out what happened to him.

Xander: I don’t understand any of this. Everything I thought I knew about why sarah left is a lie.

Gwen: Well, I-I suppose– well, I suppose, in the end, she just decided she wanted to be on her own.

Xander: Okay, I mean, I get why she’d lie to me, but what about her mother? Why text maggie pretending that she’s off with rex at doctors without borders and that they’re happy?

Gwen: Xander, are you sure that maggie wasn’t just playing along? You know, maybe she’s just trying to protect her daughter.

Xander: There’s no way she was acting, gwen. Maggie believed that sarah was with rex, just like I did.

Gwen: Well, I’m sure that there is a logical explanation for all of this.

Xander: I have to go talk to maggie.

Gwen: I don’t think that we should worry her unnecessarily.

Xander: Her daughter’s been lying about her whereabouts. Something could be really wrong.

Gwen: We don’t know that do, do we? But what I do know is that if we do not go to the airport now, we will not make it in time to london for the holidays.

Xander: Are you joking?

Gwen: Joking about what?

Xander: I can’t possibly leave now, gwen. I have to find sarah and talk to her directly.

Gwen: Are you really–

Xander: She lied to me about where she’s been, about where she went. I have to find out why. Hi sabrina!

Brady: Come on, man. You gotta tr– you gotta try to remember what happened. Phil, get your hands off me. Think. Think. Think. Come on, think. Hey, did you talk to roman?

Belle: Uh, he wasn’t there, so rex checked the security footage.

Brady: And?

Belle: Someone erased it.

[Dramatic music]

Kate: Okay. You know, the part that I really cannot wrap my head around is that you’ve done all of this because of chloe.

Philip: I loved her, and she said she loved me too. But they made a fool of me, mom. Even you said you thought she and brady were sleeping together.

Kate: Okay, I said that because I was hoping that you would break it off with her, not do something crazy like this.

Philip: Well, she lied to me, okay? Over and over and over again. I watched them walk into the salem inn together. I overheard them talking about having sex in the basic black boardroom.

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

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

Philip: She made him promise to never tell anyone about their secret sex romp. They had sex on the conference table. Do you know how humiliating that is?

Kate: Okay, look, I never said that you shouldn’t feel humiliated and betrayed. Never said that.

Philip: What about them? That they should just get to walk away from this? I mean, don’t you see, mom, they’re getting exactly what they deserve, and they’ll never know that I’m behind it.

Kate: What does that mean? What are you saying? Do you think– are you gonna stay dead forever?

Philip: For now.

Kate: [Sighs] I don’t think I can keep a secret like that, philip.

Philip: Of course, you can.

Kate: Your father deserves to know that you’re alive.

Philip: The hell with dad. He told chloe that I’m dead to him.

Kate: Okay. You know he doesn’t mean that. He always says things like that. Philip, come on. Come on, do you realize how many people love you? Do you realize how many people are mourning your death right now?

[Knocking on door]

Chloe: Hey, kate? Are you in there? I need to talk to you.

Philip: Don’t answer that.

John: Hey, kay, it’s john. Again, listen, I’m sorry I’m leaving so many messages here, but I’m getting kinda worried. I’m trying to track steve down to see if he’s got any word on marlena. So could you please call me back as soon as you get this? Thanks.


[Dramatic music]

Demon marlena: Thank you, kayla, for the use of your key card.

[Eerie music]

Hello, sleeping beauty. It’s time to wake up.
