THE END IS MISSING DUE TO NEWS BREAK (WE’LL GET IT LATER)
[Glass shatters] Aw.
Philip: [Sighs] I’m sorry.
Kate: Oh, no, no, no, no. It’s okay.
Philip: No, it’s not. That’s what I’ve done with my life. And chloe’s and brady’S. And yours.
Kate: No, no, no, no. Remember what I said to you last night? I’m going to help you get your life back together again. Together, we’re gonna fix it. Okay? Actually, I have a plan. I just have to talk to your father first.
Philip: You’re gonna tell dad what I did?
Kate: Well, I have to tell him that you’re alive.
Philip: Why? He doesn’t give a damn. He said I’m dead to him.
Kate: Okay, he doesn’t mean that, first of all. He was upset. He got carried away, and I think that you can understand that happening, right? Okay, do not leave this room. Do not open that door. Philip?
Kate: Okay, good. Love you.
Philip: Love you.
Sami: Lucas, have you heard anything from my dad? Where is he?
Lucas: Um, he went to pick up his santa suit from the cleaners.
Sami: That’s right, it’s christmas eve. How could I forget? Just doesn’t feel like it, you know?
Lucas: Yeah, I know. I know what you mean.
Sami: [Sighs] Any news on philip?
Lucas: No. No, he’s still missing. Paper said there’s still no leads, so…
Sami: [Sighs] I’m so sorry, lucas.
Lucas: Well, thank you. Thanks, sami. I appreciate that. What’s going on with you? What’s the latest with your mom?
Sami: [Sighs] I don’t know. I was hoping my dad might have an update. I’m just praying that she’s okay.
Lucas: Well, you know, this is the season of miracles. So here’s to hoping we both get what we want this christmas.
Paulina: Yes, it’s for lani price grant. I ordered the–the deluxe floral arrangement. Uh, are you sure? You’re sure they were delivered?
[Sighs] Thank you.
[Cell phone beeps]
[Light instrumental music]
[Knocking on door] Come in. It’s open.
Chanel: [Laughs] Merry christmas, mama.
Paulina: Oh, chanel. Chanel. Oh. Oh, my. My baby girl is home. Oh. Oh.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Ej: Johnny, you startled me. I had no idea you were coming home today.
Johnny: The pilot didn’t tell you chanel and I were headed back to salem?
Ej: He filed a flight plan, but I didn’t know whether you’d be on the plane since I haven’t heard from you in weeks.
Ej: As you should be. After I gave you unlimited use of the company jet just so you could impress your girlfriend.
Ej: It wasn’t about impressing her. After everything that went down, chanel needed time away from her family. So what did I miss while I was gone?
Ej: [Clears throat]
Lucas: I already got what i wanted for christmas this year.
Sami: Oh, yeah?
Sami: What’s that?
Sami: [Sputters] Excuse me?
Lucas: You, yeah. You’re back in salem safe and sound where you belong. You’re welcome, by the way.
Sami: [Sighs] I thanked you. I’m thanking you again. Thank you for saving me.
Sami: I’ve thanked you over and over, as you well know.
Lucas: I just can’t get enough of that, so–
Sami: [Laughs] Of course.
Lucas: You know who hasn’t thanked me is ej. I’ll bet he was hoping you’d be gone for good.
Sami: That’s not true, lucas.
Lucas: Really? He served you with divorce papers, didn’t he?
Sami: Yes. And I tore them up, as you well know.
Lucas: Pompous ass probably drawing up papers right as we speak. Or he probably gave ’em to you already.
Lucas: No? You sure?
Sami: No, he didn’T. In fact, yesterday we were–
Lucas: You know what? I don’t have time to hear about your love life right now, actually. I’m on my way to check on my mom; she’s upstairs.
Sami: Ah. Lucas, how’s your mom doing?
Lucas: She’s not good. She’s not good. I haven’t spoken to her since yesterday. She’s really upset about philip and she’s locked herself in the room.
Sami: Well… send her my love, okay?
Lucas: Yeah. Don’t send ej mine.
Victor: Damn allergies.
Kate: You don’t have to be ashamed to mourn for our son. Okay? But no need for tears anymore.
Victor: Why would you say that?
Kate: Because our son is alive. I’ve seen him with my own eyes.
Victor: What? Where the hell is he?
Kate: I’m going to tell you, but you cannot tell a soul.
[Knocks on door]
Lucas: Mom. Mom, come on. I’m really worried about you. I know you told roman that you don’t want to see anybody, but… you’re not the only one who’s heartbroken over philip, okay? I am too. He’s my little brother. And I know our relationship wasn’t perfect, but I still love him and I still miss him. And I still don’t know if I’m gonna see him ever again. So come on, open the door.
Philip! Lila: Before I was diagnosed, there was nothing
Sami: Belle. Oh, thank god you’re here. Listen, do you have any updates on mom? Do you know anything about how she’s doing?
Belle: No, uh, and you know what? I really can’t talk about this right now. I have to get this suit over to brady before his–
Sami: How is brady doing?
Belle: He’s not doing great. He was just arrested for murder.
Sami: But he has you to defend him, right? So–so that’s good. I’m just really worried about mom. Hasn’t john called? Has he given you any information? How is he doing?
Belle: Uh, he hasn’t called yet. I’m sure it’s ’cause he’s out on the search. And steve’s with him. And shawn’s at the safehouse with ben and ciara, and–
Sami: I just don’t even know what good that’s gonna do. Mom can turn herself into a cat or a pumpkin or a christmas tree. I mean–
Belle: Yeah, well, got any other ideas?
Sami: No. No, I don’T. When I called her, when I finally managed to reach her when I was kidnapped and she told me what was happening, I felt so desperate to help her, to do something. And there’s just nothing we can do.
Belle: Yeah, no. There’s nothing we can do right now.
Sami: I hate that helplessness. I hate it so much, belle, which is why I wanna hire you.
Belle: Hire me? To do what?
Sami: To help me save my marriage.
Ej: Remember you told me that chanel felt marlena wanted her to drop that bombshell at abe and paulina’s wedding? That somehow your grandmother was insisting that she tell everyone paulina’s secret.
Johnny: Yeah, I’m still shocked actually that grandma would even share that secret with chanel–that paulina is not just chanel’s mom, but she’s lani’s mom too.
Ej: Mm. I’m sure paulina shared that in confidence.
Johnny: Of course she did. As a patient talking to a therapist. I mean, for grandma to share something like that with someone, especially somebody with such a personal connection, that’s–that’s not like her.
Ej: Because it wasn’t her.
Paulina: I thought you went away with johnny to process what happened at the wedding, not to get busy all over italia.
Chanel: Ever heard of multi-tasking?
Paulina: Oh. Well, uh, good for you.
Chanel: And–and how has everything been here? How are things with abe?
Paulina: [Sighs] He says he still loves me. But he doesn’t know if he can ever trust me again. I told him I would do anything to earn back his trust. He says there’s nothing I can do. He just needs time.
Chanel: Well, okay. So he’s not closing the door. That’s good. And what about lani?
Paulina: Well, I haven’t seen lani since the aftermath of the wedding. The wedding that wasn’T.
Chanel: I am so sorry about my part in that, mama. That–I just still can’t believe that I blurted out that you’re lani’s mother in front of everyone.
Paulina: No, no, no, baby. That’s not your fault. Turns out… the devil made you do it.
Eli: “I don’t expect you to forgive me, I just wanna say that I love you and miss you so much. Merry christmas with love, from your mama.”
Lani: Why can’t she just leave me alone?
Eli: She loves you.
Lani: Yeah, well, she lied to me for my entire life. There are no flowers in the world that can change that.
Eli: Lani, I know, okay? But paulina’s not just gonna go away. You’re gonna have to face her. Talk to her and deal with this for your own sake.
Lani: Do you mind watching the twins?
Eli: Yeah. Pay me when you get back.
Lani: Uh, pay you? Um, I’m sorry, did I forget to inform you that those are your kids too?
Eli: Yes, I know, but the payment that I have in mind I think we’ll both like.
Lani: Well… I look forward to it. I’ll see you later.
Eli: See you soon.
Philip: I’m sorry I let everyone think I was–
Lucas: How long were you gonna let us think that? Forever?
Philip: I don’t know. I figured… no one would really miss me that much.
Lucas: Oh, really? Did you hear what I just said outside there?
Philip: That’s why i opened the door. It meant… it meant so much to me. But lucas, you can’t tell anyone I’m alive. You can’t
Lucas: All right. All right, man, I won’T. Relax. But what are you gonna do?
Philip: I don’t know. Mom just went to talk to my father. She said she has a plan to fix this–fix me. But I don’t know that I’m fixable. My god, look at what I’ve done.
Lucas: Hold on, hold on. Just relax, all right? You’ve been under a lot of stress the last few months. You’ve been pushed to your limit. It’s not your fault.
Philip: A lot of it is. You know, the gambling. Getting involved with ava vitali. Twice. I made some terrible choices.
Lucas: Who hasn’t? Come on.
Philip: [Sighs] But being with chloe was supposed to turn all that around. You know, it was supposed to be a whole new beginning like I told you and mom at the pub that day. I was giving up on the jealousy, the paranoia, the blowing up over nothing. And I had it all under control until…
Lucas: What? What? Until what?
Philip: When I left the pub that day, I went to basic black and I overheard brady and chloe talking about having sex on the conference table. And it took me right back to high school. You know, brady moving in on my girlfriend, taking what’s mine. I don’t know. Something inside me just snapped.
Lucas: Well, of course you did; they were having an affair under your nose.
Philip: Except they weren’T. Chloe told my mom it was all a misunderstanding. She and brady never slept together.
Lucas: And you believe that?
Philip: I don’t know. But if I really love chloe, shouldn’t I trust her?
Lucas: I don’t know. Not necessarily. Not when it comes to brady.
Philip: Well, but even if she did cheat on me, what I did was worse– was much worse.
Lucas: Philip, come on.
Philip: I let the people I love think I was dead. I set brady up to go to prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
[Sighs] I’ve done so much damage. And now how do I undo it, lucas?
Victor: Why would philip fake his own death?
Kate: [Sighs] And he also framed brady for the murder. But trust me, victor, he was not in his right mind when he did it.
Victor: It’s because of that trollop, chloe lane. She–she–she drove him to this.
Kate: I mean, he believes that everything he’s done he’s failed at. He believes that no one loves him. I’m afraid he really thinks that life is not worth living. He needs help.
Victor: What he needs is a damn good lawyer.
Kate: Oh, god. He’s fragile. Just the stress of a trial would be too much. I mean, not to mention a prison sentence.
Victor: What are you saying, kate? Is he going to live in the room over the brady pub for the rest of his life?
Kate: What I’m saying is that you and I need to make him disappear so he can get the help that he needs.
Victor: Mm, I can’t do that. We do it every night.
Victor: I would do anything in my power to help philip. But brady’s my grandson. I can’t let him go to prison for a murder he didn’t commit.
Kate: Okay. Well, there has to be something to make this mess go away for both of them, then.
Victor: And what would that be?
Kate: I don’t know. I’m not sure yet. But we need to figure it out together.
Lucas: Listen, I’m sure that mom and victor can help you in some way.
Philip: They can’t fix everything. My future with chloe is probably over. If I ever had one. Brady’ll probably get out of this and somehow convince chloe that he’s innocent. She’ll give him another chance and he’ll win.
Lucas: Well, don’t do that. Don’t go there.
Philip: She’ll want nothing to do with me and I’ll have no other choice but to walk away. But I’m just not sure that I can.
Sami: There’s no way in hell I am giving up on my marriage, belle. Anyway, ej only wants to divorce me over some “dimera pride” I know he still loves me, okay? And I’m gonna fight like hell. I’m ready to do whatever it takes to save my marriage. What?
Belle: I just can’t believe you’re thinking about yourself at a time like this.
Sami: Come on, belle. I came over here to get an update on mom.
Belle: Right. But since there isn’t one, why not just ask for a favor for yourself.
Sami: Is it a crime to ask my sister to help me save my marriage?
Belle: Oh, my god. Sami, mom is possessed, philip might be dead, and brady is facing prison for murder. And you’re thinking about your marriage?
Sami: Yeah. I am also worried about my marriage. And as a married woman, I would think you’d appreciate that it is not exactly a trivial matter. We have two kids together. He is the love of my life.
Belle: Okay, okay, okay. Fine. I get it.
Sami: So you’ll represent me?
Belle: Even if I wanted to, I can’T. I work for dimera enterprises. It would be unethical for me to represent you.
Sami: Aren’t you representing your brother right now?
Belle: Yes, and he’s waiting for me. I’m sure that you won’t have any trouble finding another lawyer.
Sami: Belle, I don’t want another lawyer, I want you.
Belle: No, you want someone to make ej stay married to you.
Sami: Y-yes. That would be the point.
Belle: Okay, well, that’s exactly why I have to turn you down.
Sami: What? Why?
Belle: Because I don’t take cases I know I can’t win.
Johnny: So when the ouija board said that the devil was at the dimera crypt–
Ej: It was right on the money.
Johnny: And when I went there to scout it for my movie and I ran into grandma marlena outside, that wasn’t just a halloween costume she was wearing? She… she actually is possessed by the devil?
Ej: Satan had taken possession of her. And she locked john and your grandma susan in the crypt. You inadvertently tipped off steve johnson before you left town, otherwise they would have barely made it out alive.
Johnny: Well, are they okay now?
Ej: Physically, yes. My mother is still a little shaken up. She’s staying here, in fact, and would be delighted to see you.
Johnny: Yeah, no wonder grandma was so stoked about my movie. Do you this this is gonna derail the whole project? Uh, no, I’m s–never mind. That is–I’m sorry. That’s the last thing that matters right now. Um… does mom know about all this or is she still off the grid?
Ej: Actually son, there’s something else you should know.
Chanel: Johnny’s grandmother is possessed by the devil?
Paulina: Her evil eyes bore right into mine. And I lived to tell the tale.
Chanel: Oh, my god. Johnny has no idea.
Paulina: Well, I’m sure he does by now. The whole town– everybody else does. Probably the whole world. Were you living under a rock in italy?
Chanel: I told you, we were…busy. Actually, we–
[Knocks on door]
Paulina: [Chuckles] Hold that thought.
Chanel: I’ll get it.
[Light, tense music]
Hi susan! Honey?
Paulina: Oh, lani? Um, I’m glad you came by.
Lani: Um, chanel, I–I–I thought you were in italy.
Chanel: I got back this morning. And lani, I can’t say this enough, I am so sorry about what I did at the wedding.
Lani: It wasn’t your fault.
Chanel: Thank you for understanding. While I was away, I did a lot of thinking.
Lani: About what?
Chanel: How jealous I was because I thought you were mama’s favorite. It was stupid and petty and I’m over it now. I got something I always wanted–a sister.
Chanel: And no matter how you feel about me, I am so grateful.
Lani: So am I. Chanel, what we are, it may have changed, but…what hasn’t changed is that I love you very much. And I always will. Okay?
Chanel: Mama feels the same way about you.
Lani: Yeah, um… it said that in the card that you sent with the flowers.
Paulina: Oh, so you got them.
[Chuckles] Uh, is that why you came by here?
Lani: Actually, it is.
Johnny: Mom was kidnapped? By who?
Ej: No one knows. After that clod lucas rescued her, she declined to file a police report.
Ej: You’d have to ask her.
Johnny: Is she okay?
Ej: I’d guess it’s the kidnappers who are a little worse for wear.
Johnny: I’m calling her now.
[Cell phone beeps]
Johnny: Mom. Hey, dad just told me what happened. Are you okay?
Sami: Yes, yes. I’m fine. I’m just so happy to hear your voice.
Johnny: I’m a lot happier to hear yours. When can I see you?
Sami: Um, well, are you at home with your father now?
Sami: I can come over now if that’s okay.
Johnny: That’s perfect. I’ll see you soon.
[Cell phone beeps] Mom’s coming over.
Johnny: Is that a problem?
Ej: No, not a problem. It’ll give me a chance to serve her with new divorce papers. She tore up the last ones.
Johnny: You’re still getting divorced?
Ej: Why do you sound surprised?
Johnny: I don’t know. I just thought after you found out what mom went through it might make you miss her. Make you realize what she means to you.
Ej: She cheated on me, johnny. I’ve moved on. I’m with nicole now.
Johnny: [Scoffs] Nicole? Really? Didn’t you cheat on nicole with mom?
Ej: Your point being?
Johnny: I guess we’ll see.
Belle: You know, if you think getting in ej’s face every 5 minutes is gonna make him fall back in love with you–
Sami: I didn’t ask for your advice, counselor. But I’m gonna give you a tip. You messed with the devil’s plans when you showed up at that cabin. So if I were you, I’d avoid any black cats crossing your path.
Belle: Oh, yes. Thanks, sami. Appreciate it.
Sami: Oh, and happy anniversary.
Belle: Hey, kate. Uh, sure. I’ll be right there.
Kate: Okay, belle’s on her way. And don’t you look so glum. This is going to work.
Victor: Well, it better.
– Oh…oh. – What’s going on?
Lani: The flowers were beautiful.
Paulina: I’m glad you like them. Took me a long time to pick out the arrangement.
Lani: Yeah, well… I will be taking them to the hospital tomorrow and give them to someone who actually wants them. And as for this card…
Lani: Chanel, I know you mean well, but this is between me and paulina. I want you to stop reaching out to me. Stop sending me gifts that I will either give away or throw in the trash. I know how much you don’t like to waste a penny of your hard-earned money.
Paulina: Lani. Lani. [Stammers] Merry christmas.
Paulina: Please say happy birthday to those two beautiful little angels for me.
Johnny: Look, if you’re uncomfortable being around mom, you can leave before she gets here.
Ej: Who’s uncomfortable? As I said, it’ll give me the opportunity to take care of our legal business. And then she’ll be out of my life once and for all.
Johnny: Fine, but chanel is coming over for lunch soon, so I would appreciate it if you two could keep it civil.
Ej: It seems chanel is accustomed to family drama. But–
Sami: Johnny! Johnny! Johnny! There you are!
Sami: Oh! It’s so good to see you.
Johnny: You too.
Sami: Look at your handsome face. I can’t believe you’re here and allie’s here and your father’s here. We’re all in salem together at once. It’s like a christmas miracle.
Johnny: Hasn’t happened since we were little.
Sami: Isn’t it just the most wonderful time of the year? There’s nothing more wonderful than having my family back together.
Lucas: Look, man, I don’t know. I don’t know what’s gonna happen with chloe. I really don’T. But you got other things to worry about right now.
Philip: Yeah. Okay, I won’T. I will focus on making things right.
Lucas: Good. That’s a better idea, isn’t it?
Philip: It’s just… you know, what’s right is brady being with kristen. You know, she’s the love of his life. And for me… it’s always been chloe. Of course there was other relationships, but–
Lucas: No, I know. I know. I know exactly what you mean. I get it, believe me. I spent a long time being infatuated with carrie brady when the woman I really loved ever since she was in high school was…
Lucas: Yeah, man. We were best friends. We were lovers. We were enemies. We were everything. Now it looks like I’m on the same boat you are, little brother.
Philip: At least you and sami still have a chance. You didn’t do anything crazy like I did.
Lucas: I wouldn’t be too sure about that.
Belle: So, uh, I have brady’s bail hearing in an hour. If you have information that can help him, now is the time.
Kate: There’s not going to be a bail hearing.
Belle: What do you mean?
Kate: Victor and I have decided to revoke the document we signed having philip declared legally dead.
Victor: Without a body, trask has no case.
Kate: And she’ll have to drop the charges against brady.
Belle: That’s true.
[Laughs] I’m glad to see you’ve come to your senses, but why?
