Julie: Well, doesn’t it make you feel all christmassy?

Eli: Yeah, it sure does. You know, grandma, looking at this beautiful tree, you would never guess that the devil tried to burn it down last night.

Julie: It’s going to take more than demon possession to stop this family or your grandmother from having the horton christmas tree. That reminds me I have something for you.

Eli: Okay.

Julie: Yeah. You hear that? Well, actually, it’s for you and lani. But actually, it’s for my precious grandbabies. Yes, it is. But you are a little small to undo the box. And so daddy is going to do the honors.

Eli: Maybe we should wait until lani’s done helping doug in the kitchen.

Julie: No. I’m too impatient. I want to see it now. Open it, darling.

Eli: Okay. All right. Grandma, thank you. Look. Guys, these are for you from your great-grandmother and you’ll put them on that tree there every year.

Julie: Can we hang out together? Just you and me right now? It would give me something so lovely to remember.

Eli: Sure. Let’s do it. You want to see?

Julie: You want to watch? This is you and this is you, little jules. Okay.

Eli: Which one–

Julie: What do you like? How about there? Okay. And there she is.

Eli: Right. I’ll put carver right next to jules.

Julie: Good idea.

Eli: How’s that?

Julie: Well, I think it’s perfect. Can you see, honey?

Eli: Yeah. See?

Julie: Do you see them on the tree? Do you see ’em?

Eli: They have your names on them. Now you guys are officially part of the horton family christmas tree tradition, and you always will be.

[Soft music]

Allie: You’re up early. Is that because you know it’s christmas? It’s christmas.

Tripp: Hey.

Allie: Hey. Hi. Sorry. Did henry wake you up?

Tripp: No, no. That’s okay. It’s okay. Merry christmas. And merry christmas to you, hank.

Allie: Merry christmas. How’re you feeling this morning?

Tripp: Not bad for a guy who just came out of a coma.

Allie: But at least it wasn’t your coma.

Tripp: Yeah. Was that just a bad christmas eve dream? Or did your grandma really turn me into jan spears in a coma?

Allie: I really wish that i could say it was a bad dream, but I can’T.

Tripp: I know.

Allie: But hey, hey. It’s over now. Okay. It’s over. And I don’t want to talk about demons anymore. It’s christmas. It’s the one day of the year when miracles really can happen. And you and i and henry are all together, so let’s just be happy. Okay.

Tripp: Sounds good to me. Hey big man. You want some–are you hungry? Want some pancakes?

Allie: Want some pancakes?

Tripp: Want some pancakes? Yeah. You want some pancakes.

Allie: Hold on. It’s johnny. He says he’s back from italy and he says he has news. Wonder what it could be.

Tripp: Hmm.

[Soft music]

Johnny: Hey. Hey. Morning, mrs. Dimera. Buon natale.

Chanel: Mrs. Dimera. I like the sound of that.

Johnny: Yeah.

Chanel: What else did you say?

Johnny: Buon natale. It’s italian for merry christmas.

Chanel: Why does everything sound so much sexier in italian?

Johnny: Because it is.

Chanel: Think your parents are getting used to the idea of me being their daughter-in-law?

Johnny: I think that my parents have bigger things to worry about than you and me.

Chanel: Yeah. Like what?

Johnny: Like my dad is in jail for kidnapping my mom.

Nicole: Merry christmas.

Ej: I was surprised when they told me I had a visitor. I thought you’d be with holly.

Nicole: Well, maggie and victor asked if they could have her. So I just dropped her off. Did you get any sleep at all?

Ej: Not much. The accommodations aren’t up to my usual standards. Why are you staring at me?

Nicole: Did you do it? Did you really have sami kidnapped?

Sami: Come on, mom. You have to beat this. Hi.

Lucas: Hey, you all right?

Sami: Come in, please.

Lucas: Well, I just heard that ej was arrested.

Sami: Look, I can’t think about him right now.

Lucas: What do you mean you can’t think about ej right now? Since when?

Sami: It’s john has locked my mother in their bedroom, tied her to the bed.

Lucas: Are you kidding me? What are they doing in there?

Sami: God only knows. And I mean that literally.

John: I know you’re still there, doc. It’s christmas morning. It’s time for you to come home to me.

Demon marlena: Nice day for an exorcism.

[Laughing] Good luck with that.


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

[Soft orchestration]

Chanel: You’re putting me on, right? Your dad didn’t really have your mom kidnapped.

Johnny: Yeah. I mean, I don’t know. The cops must think so or they wouldn’t have arrested him.

Chanel: Wow. Wow. Okay. So, well, what do you think? You know your dad better than the cops do.

Johnny: Nothing my dad does really surprises me, you know. He is a dimera.

Chanel: So are you.

Johnny: Starting to have second thoughts about marrying into my crazy family?

Chanel: No way. I’m in for the long haul.

Johnny: Hey. What do you say that we forget about my parents’ latest drama and go see allie. It’s time we gave her the good news.

Chanel: Oh. Yeah, okay. If you want to.

Johnny: Hey, whoa–where do you think you’re going?

Chanel: To take a shower.

Johnny: Without giving me my christmas present?

Chanel: You want a present?

Johnny: Yeah.

Chanel: Have you been naughty or nice?

Johnny: I’ll be whatever you want me to be.

Ej: The police can’t possibly make a case against me, because I’m innocent. I’m serious. I had absolutely nothing to do with samantha’s kidnapping.

Nicole: Well, I heard the cops caught one of the guys who was guarding sami. Why would he say that he worked for you?

Ej: Because he’s lying. Someone is setting me up.

Lucas: Your mom set fire to the horton christmas angel?

Sami: Yeah. Right out of currier and ives, isn’t it?

Lucas: That angel’s been in my family for generations. Doug and julie must be freaked out. You know, they’re scared of your mom right now.

Sami: Well, they have every reason to be. She’s pretty scary. John keeps reminding me that it’s the thing in her that did this, not her. But it looks a lot like her.

Lucas: I can’t–i just can’T.

Sami: It’s happened before, you know. I mean, as it turns out, my mother is the devil’s favorite place to go for the holidays.

Lucas: Well, I just didn’t think it would happen again is what I’m saying.

Sami: Me neither. I just hope john knows what he’s doing. I hope that we get my mom back before it’s too late.

Demon marlena: Why can’t I do this?

John: Because you are losing your power. You’re not as strong as you used to be.

Demon marlena: That’s not true.

John: I think you’re making it true.

[Dramatic music]

Our father, who art in heaven–

Demon marlena: You’re not really starting that–

John: Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done–

Demon marlena: He can’t hear you.

John: Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven–

Demon marlena: You’re wasting your breath. You aren’t even a priest.

John: Give us this day our daily bread and forgive us our trespasses–

Demon marlena: Your precious marlena is lost to you.

John: As we forgive those who trespass against us.

Demon marlena: [Laughing]

Limu emu… & doug

Paulina: Abe. Fancy meeting you here.

Abe: Hello, paulina. Merry christmas.

Paulina: Merry christmas to you. I’m just finishing up my christmas shopping.

Abe: I’m surprised there were stores open.

Paulina: Ballistix was open till noon. I made it in just under the wire. Good thing too. I have a new son-in-law to shop for.

Abe: Well, you know that eli and lani have been married for over a year.

Paulina: I wasn’t talking about eli. And I’m sure he doesn’t want a present from me anyway. I’m talking about my new son-in-law. My chanel, she came home from her roman holiday married to johnny dimera.

Johnny: Hey. What’s wrong?

Chanel: Just hold on a minute. Okay?

Johnny: Do you not want to tell allie that we got married?

Chanel: No. No, it’s not that. It’s just I’m worried about how she’ll take it.

Johnny: Why? Because you guys played around with kissing for a while? That’s way in the past. Look, you’re my wife now.

Chanel: Yeah, I am. I married to my best friend’s brother. The brother she warned me about. This could be weird for her.

Johnny: Look, okay, she’s gonna find out eventually. She might as well find out from us.


Allie: Hi. Welcome home.

Chanel: Merry christmas.

Allie: Merry christmas. Hi. Oh, you guys should’ve come by earlier. Tripp made pancakes.

Chanel: We got henry a present; where is he?

Allie: That’s so sweet. He was up really early, but then he got really sleepy after his big breakfast. So tripp is putting him down for a nap.

Johnny: Oh. He’s here?

Tripp: Yeah. He’s here. Merry christmas.

Johnny: You too.

Chanel: This is for you. It’s from johnny and me.

Allie: Aww. Well, I got you guys stuff too. I mean, I figured we’d open it all together.

Johnny: You guys want to– you guys want to wait a minute on the–on the presents. Didn’t you get my text? Don’t you want to hear the big news?

Allie: Yeah, but I realized that I already know what it is.

Chanel: You do?

Allie: Yeah. Johnny’s dad kidnapped our mom.

Nicole: Okay. Who would want to set you up for kidnapping sami?

Ej: I’ve made more than a few enemies here in salem. Victor kiriakis blames me for titan’s financial problems. Melinda trask hates me for making her look like a fool in court. And then there’s–

Nicole: Okay. You might want to narrow down your list to one possible name that you can give the police.

Ej: As a matter of fact, I already have.

Sami: John’s been in there for a long time. I hope she hasn’t turned him into a goat or something.

Lucas: Turn him into a goat. You’re wearing out the rug. Come on, sit down for a second. Take a look. Well, so I don’t–I don’t know–I don’t know a lot about exorcisms, but I’ve seen a couple movies about them, you know, and i just know it takes a while. Right?

Sami: Exorcism. You know, my–my mother should be enjoying her christmas with her children and her grandchildren.

Lucas: I know.

Sami: Instead she’s in there battling for her immortal soul. If anyone deserves to be possessed by the devil, it’s me.

Lucas: Would we be able to tell the difference if you were possessed by the devil? Would we be able to decipher that? I’m just kidding. Trying to keep your mind off things. Okay. I’m try and change the subject, that’s all. I know that you’re very scared for your mom right now, but we should probably talk about this ej situation, right?

Sami: No. Lucas, I don’t want to talk about that.

Lucas: What do you mean you don’t want to talk about your very own husband kidnaps you, hold you against your will? Please tell me you’re done with that guy. People everywhere living with

Johnny: I still can’t believe that dad would do that to mom.

Allie: I can.

Johnny: Come on, al.

Allie: What? You saw how he treated her when we were all in rome.

Johnny: Yeah. And then he followed her back here and they got back together.

Allie: And then he found out that she was cheating on him.

Johnny: Well, let’s just agree to disagree. Okay. That’s not the news that we came here to tell you.

Tripp: Okay. Okay, you guys have the floor.

Johnny: Chanel and i got married.

Tripp: Get out.

Johnny: Yes.

Chanel: We’re not just best friends anymore. We’re sisters-in-law.

Abe: Johnny and chanel, are they really married?

Paulina: Oh yeah. I’m trying to make the best of it, but–

Abe: But you’ve heard a lot of far-out stories about the dimera family.

Paulina: Yes, I have. Although I know your–your late wife. She was a dimera. So–so that makes your son theo half-dimera, so–well, there’s obviously some goodness in that gene pool.

Abe: Definitely. Besides, every family has its problems.

Ej: And there’s chad. He wants dimera enterprises all to himself. He makes no secret of that. Jake knows that I organized the campaign to oust him as ceo. Gabi hates me for that and for throwing her out of my house–

Nicole: Okay. I thought you said you narrowed your list down to one name.

Ej: But out of all those people, I don’t think anyone hates me more than rafe does.

Nicole: [Scoffs] Rafe? Oh, don’t be ridiculous. First of all, he would never do that to sami. And second of all, he wouldn’t break the law just to get to you.

Ej: He’s always been jealous of me and it’s even worse now that I’m with you.

Nicole: Rafe?

Ej: Mm-hmm.

Nicole: Jealous? That is patently absurd.

Ej: I disagree.

Nicole: Okay. Well then since we’re sitting here talking about people who hate your guts, what about lucas horton?

Sami: Look, I’ve heard chapter and verse about how you hate ej. I don’t need to hear it anymore. Listen, I have to be here for my mother right now.

Lucas: I know. I get that. Okay. But he–he did kidnap you for weeks and weeks. He held you there and he tortured you. Why would you go back to a guy who tortured you? How’s that going to help your mother?

Sami: We don’t know that it was ej.

Lucas: Yes, we do. Why would the salem pd arrest him? They wouldn’t arrest him for nothing. And please tell me you’re not still fighting the divorce.

Sami: Well, ej doesn’t want a divorce now.

Lucas: He what?

Sami: Yeah, he was just telling me that he–mom.

John: Very impressive. Even shackled to the bed, you have telekinetic powers, but I have god, our father, the son and the holy spirit on my side, not to mention marlena’s love. Shall we begin? Revelation, book 12, verse 9. “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the devil, and satan, who deceiveth the whole world was cast out into the earth, and all of his angels were cast out with him.” Cast out. Cast out.

Demon marlena: [Screaming]

[Dramatic music]


[Dramatic music]

[ Echoing ]

Some of us were born for this.

John: First peter, chapter 5, verse 8, “be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.”

Sami: Stop. Stop.

Demon marlena: Sami. Sami, please help me. Honey. Honey, you’ve got to help me. This is what he did to me. Look at this. This is why I ran away.

John: Samantha, it’s not her.

Sami: No. John, you have to stop. Okay. Please. You have to untie her. This is torture.

Johnny: Samantha, it’s not her. It’s the devil just playing with you. It’s not her.

Demon marlena: Sami. Sami, help me.

Sami: John, I can’t stand to see her scream.

Demon marlena: Sami, help me, please.

John: Let’s take a break. Let’s take a break. Let’s take a break. Come with me. Come with me. Come with me. Lucas, let’s go.

[Dramatic music]

Demon marlena: Not so fast, mr. Horton. You and I have to chat alone for a moment.

Ej: You actually think lucas horton has the brains and the nerve to set me up?

Nicole: No. All I said was lucas hates you, not as much as rafe does. I don’t think either one of them would do this to you. I think you’re just grasping at straws.

Ej: I don’t know about that. I didn’t put lucas on my list of suspects because he always seems so ineffectual. But maybe it was him.

Lani: Let’s go.

Paulina: Can I at least wish you a merry christmas?

Eli: Merry christmas, paulina.

Lani: The kids have probably worn doug and julie out by now. We should go pick them up and I still have a lot to do for our christmas dinner. Dad, we’ll–we’ll see you later tonight, right?

Abe: Of course you will.

Paulina: Well, I thought you want to know you have a new brother-in-law.

Allie: So you guys are really married?

Johnny: Yes, we are. Yes.

Allie: When did that happen?

Johnny: While we were in rome. Do you remember that church that mom used to take us to? That little church.

Allie: San carlo of the four fountains?

Johnny: Yes. Yeah. That’s–that’s where we got married.

Tripp: So, congratulations.

Johnny: Thank you. Thank you.

Chanel: Allie? You’re not saying anything.

Allie: Okay. You want me to say something? You just made the biggest mistake of your entire life.


Johnny: I can’t believe you just said that.

Chanel: I thought you’d be happy for us.

Tripp: I mean, you guys just did throw this at her.

Johnny: No, we didn’T.

Allie: How long have you been dating? A couple of months?

Johnny: Long enough to know we love each other.

Allie: Okay. How many times have I watched you fall in and out of love?

Johnny: I’m not a kid anymore. Okay. This is different. Chanel and I know that what we feel for each other is real.

Allie: What do you know about real? Our giovanni here is always the leading man in his own movie. The plot is always the same. It’s just the girl who changes. Okay. They go for romantic strolls by the tiber, and then they walk over to the piazza navona. That’s your regular route. Wasn’t it? And then he takes her to the one trattoria where they know him and he orders for her in italian. Sound familiar? I guess you needed a bigger ending for your movie this time ’cause you married the girl before you broke up with her.

Johnny: Are you done yet? Or you still–okay.

Allie: No, I’m not done. The movie’s over. Okay? You’re back in salem now. What happens when those magic feeling goes away and you’re stuck with a guy who’s bored of being a husband?

Sami: [Crying]

John: Hey. Here you go, kid.

Sami: Thank you.

John: Look, I know how hard this is on you and I know how much you hate what I’m doing because I hate it too. But a successful exorcism is the only chance I have of bringing your mother back to you.

Sami: I understand. And I brought grandma carolyn’s rosary, ’cause I wanted to help, but it just so hard. It’s really hard to see her like that.

John: That wasn’t her. That was satan preying on your love of her. He wants you to stop me.

Sami: I just–I love her, you know, that right, john? I love her so much, even though I don’t always show her how much I love her–

John: She understands that. Sweetie, wherever she is right now, she can feel that love.

Sami: Wherever she is?

John: You know–whether you realize it or not, what you’re doing right now is helping her. It’s making her stronger and I need you with me on this right now. I need you to be 100% all in.

Sami: Okay.

John: It says in the bible that, ‘a house divided against itself shall not stand.’ And we’re up against the forces of darkness here, so we–we have to be a united front. All in, samantha.

Nicole: Okay. Just slow down a little bit here. Okay? I don’t really see lucas as the kidnapping type.

Ej: Why not? He pretended to have a brain tumor so he could get close to chloe lane.

Nicole: No, no, no. Sami put him up to that. Because your lovely sister said that she would tell the whole world about sami and lucas if sami didn’t get chloe away from brady.

Ej: What about the fact that lucas almost let samantha receive the death penalty for a murder he committed? He didn’t need prodding from kristen then.

Nicole: Well, lucas finally manned up and stopped the execution.

Ej: With seconds to spare. I’m sorry, but lucas horton is more malicious than you give him credit for.

Lucas: There’s nothing I can do for you. So stop playing games and open up the door.

Demon marlena: No. We’ve got a few things to get settled first.

Lucas: You and me? What do we have to talk about?

Demon marlena: For starters, I know what you did. People think of you as the boring one, but I know what a little bad boy you are.

Lucas: Yeah, I’m so boring that your mind games aren’t going to work on me.

Demon marlena: Really? You see, I know that you’re the one that kidnapped sami and held her captive. That’s not very boring.

Lucas: You don’t know anything about me.

Demon marlena: I know you’re an imbecile and I know that I gave you the idea.

Lucas: Wait a minute. You made me kidnap sami?

Demon marlena: “The devil made me do it”? That’s going to be your defense? I’m sorry to disappoint, but I didn’t make you do it.

Lucas: What the hell did you do?

Demon marlena: Well, I just planted the idea in that little booze soaked brain of yours. The rest of it, you did yourself voluntarily because you couldn’t resist the temptation.

Lucas: Oh, my god.

Demon marlena: Oh, and lucas, if you don’t get me out of here, I’m gonna tell sami everything. Are you tired of clean clothes that just don’t smell clean?

Lani: So chanel ran off to italy and married herself a dimera. That girl knows how to keep life interesting.

Paulina: Mm-hmm. You can say that again.

Lani: Thank you for telling me about chanel and johnny. I will send them a wedding present.

Paulina: Speaking of presents–

Lani: I thought I made it clear to you that I don’t want anything from you.

Paulina: Even if they for my grandchildren?

Nicole: When am I going to learn to keep my big mouth shut? You cannot pin this on lucas

Ej: If it isn’t him, then who is it? Samantha didn’t kidnap herself.

Nicole: Actually, I wouldn’t put it past her.

Ej: Don’t be ridiculous.

Nicole: Well, in case you’re interested, you still haven’t convinced me that it wasn’t you.

Sami: I am with you, john. You have my attention now. I am with you 100% all in.

John: We can do this. You know, we’re not gonna stop until we save her and we’re going to need all the support we can get. We’re going to need it from our kids. We’re going to need it from our friends and especially from the man upstairs.

Sami: Yeah, especially from him. And speaking of our kids, you know what, lucas, maybe you could call–lucas. Where is he?

John: I don’t know. He was right behind us when we left the bedroom.

Demon marlena: All you have to do is untie me and I can make sure that your–your precious sami never knows you kidnapped her. I can do things like that, you know.

Lucas: If I set you free, that means you can do whatever you want to marlena. Sami will hate me. Everybody would.

Demon marlena: Well, everybody’s going to hate you anyway, once they find out that you kidnapped sami and you–you framed– you framed ej.

[Laughs] You’re just– you’re screwed no matter what you do. So why don’t we do this my way? You know what? I’ll make it easy for you. Just–just untie one hand. I’ll do the rest.

[Unsettling music]

Sami: Lucas! Lucas! Lucas, what the hell are you doing? How did olay top expensive creams?

Chanel: I need to talk to allie alone.

Tripp: You want to go take a peek at your nephew?

Johnny: Sure, I do.

Allie: You didn’t hear a word I said, did you?

Chanel: Like I don’t know that johnny’s had girls before me?

Allie: A lot of them.

Chanel: I’m telling you, this is different. Yeah, it was a spur of the moment thing, but it was real.

Allie: Okay. Well, johnny is not the only one who does think spur of the moment, chanel. All right. You remember your what a day and a half as mrs. Xander cook? What was that, five minutes after you got to salem?

Chanel: That was a scam. This is love.

Allie: Are you sure about that?

Johnny: Damn it, allie. I love chanel. Chanel loves me. We got married. Why can’t you just accept that?

Allie: Who cares if I accept it? It’s your life.

Johnny: You’re my sister. I thought you might like to see me happy, but I guess not.

Allie: I do want to see you happy, but I’d also like to see chanel happy and I feel like you’re going to make her miserable.

Johnny: I just–you know what? I had a thought. I’m starting to think that maybe this isn’t about me at all. Maybe you’re just jealous.

Tripp: What the hell is that supposed to mean?

Johnny: What do you think it means? It means your girlfriend wants my wife all to herself.

Paulina: It’s kaleidoscopes of pictures of your–your big mama and paw-paw when they were first married. And me and tammy as little girls. You and chanel when you were babies. The whole family.

Abe: That is very thoughtful of you, paulina.

Paulina: Me and tammy had them when we were little and I made one for chanel too.

Lani: My mom made me one. I used to stare at that thing for hours.

Paulina: Sort of a price family tradition.

Lani: I’m sorry. I-I can’t accept that.

Eli: Come on, baby. It’s christmas.

Paulina: Please. Please let me do this for my grandbabies.

Lani: Thank you, paulina.

Paulina: You are more than welcome.

Nicole: You and I have gone out to dinner several times and we’ve had sex once. I still don’t know who this new ej is and what he’s capable of.

Ej: I told samantha our marriage was over and that I wanted a divorce. She was sobbing–sobbing when I ordered her out of my house. Do you think I’m such a sadist that I also had her kidnapped?

Nicole: Well, when you put it like that, no. No, I don’t think you’re a sadist.

Ej: So you believe me now.

Nicole: Yes.

Ej: Thank you.

Nicole: Don’t thank me yet. We still have to figure out who kidnapped sami or you could be ringing in the new year at statesville.

Lucas: I was on my way out and she loosened the restraints. I didn’t want her to break loose.

Sami: Really? Oh no.

Demon marlena: He’s lying about everything.

John: Heavenly father. I know it says that you never put more on us than we can bear. But this is a lot. I don’t know if I have the strength to see this through, so I need your help, lord. I just need–I need you to give me a sign that it’s your will that doc’s soul will be saved for a second time.

[Knock at door]

[Tense music]

Yeah, hold on.
