Roman: You know what, i can’t think of a better way to ring in the new year than with good food and great company.
Kayla: Neither can I.
Kate: Well, I think it’s just about that time. So, what do you say?
Roman: Start it.
Kate: Okay. Ten…
Nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one.
All: Happy new year!
Steve: Don’t worry, sweetness, it’s still me. Not marlena, definitely not the devil. Oh, I’m sorry. Too soon to joke about it?
Kayla: Kind of.
Steve: Oh, baby. Come here, come here. Come back, come here.
[“Auld lang syne” jazz cover]
John: Happy new year, doc.
This is going to be our best year ever.
Marlena: Thanks to you, we have this year and many more to come. You know, I wouldn’t be here without your love.
John: No, doc, you wouldn’t be here without the love of your entire family.
Sami: So, what are you thinking?
Lucas: I was just thinking that this is going to be a really great year… if you meant what you said.
Sami: Yeah. I meant it, every word. I’m done with ej for good, and I wanna be with you… if you’ll have me.
Allie: Happy new year.
Tripp: Happy new year. And happy new year.
Chanel: At least for you guys, it’s happy.
Allie: I thought johnny was going to be down in time to toast with us.
Chanel: That’s what he said, but obviously he’s not here, so whatever’s keeping him must be more important than his first kiss on new year’s eve with his wife.
Demon johnny: Happy new year, salem. You didn’t think you were getting rid of me that easily, did you? Oh, marlena, I can’t wait to see the look on your face when you find out I haven’t gone anywhere. And I can promise you, as well as anyone else who thought i was gone for good, it’s gonna be a hell of a new year.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.
Lucas: What do you mean “if I’ll have you”? Of course I’ll have you. I love you. You know how much I love you. You’ve always known that.
Sami: Right, but I just kept pushing you away.
Lucas: But this time is different. I mean, it is different, isn’t it?
Sami: It is different, okay? I–I know what I want now.
Lucas: All right, just to be clear, all right, you’re not kissing me and making big plans because you’re frustrated that ej kidnapped you, right? I mean, this is about us. It’s about you and me. It’s not about payback or–or revenge or–or the clock striking midnight. Okay, that was a really good answer. But–but listen to me, please. I was 100% in when we started this, when we reconnected. And you were ashamed. You were humiliated. You didn’t wanna tell anybody, and you told me you never wanted it to happen again, and now here you are.
Sami: Yeah, well, I’m all in now, okay? I just felt guilty, so guilty, for cheating on ej that it just blinded me to the truth… that I love you and I respect you, and–and you respect me, and that is so important to me. Okay? You’re my soulmate, and you always have been.
Lucas: I know that, i believe that, but do you believe that? Or are you going to go running back to ej again like you always do? And–and then he becomes your soulmate all of the sudden. Then what happens to me? What happens to me? I’m left nursing a broken heart again because of you?
Kayla: Uh, kate, I’m–I’m glad that you’re celebrating with us tonight.
Kate: So am I. It’s–it’s nice to be included.
Kayla: Well, it’s no secret that you and I have had our differences, but you make my brother happy, and so I am happy for both of you.
Kate: Well, that’s very gracious of you.
Roman: Yes, it is. It means a lot, little sis.
Steve: How about another toast?
Steve: To a better year for all of us.
Kate: Ah, here, here.
Roman: Yeah, here, here.
Kate: Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes, yes.
Kayla: And to philip being found.
Roman: Speaking of which, i have business for black patch. I’m hoping I can hire you to… find kate’s son.
Allie: Maybe johnny still hasn’t forgiven me for being a jerk about you guys getting married.
Chanel: No, you heard him, it’s all good. And I know he’s really glad you guys came over to make peace.
Tripp: Maybe it’s just that he’s still not feeling well.
Chanel: Yeah, yeah, it could be that he’s sicker than he let on. You know what, I–I–I’m going to go check on him.
[Dark ambient music]
Demon marlena: Whoa! No!
John: Doc? Doc?
John: Doc, is it really you, honey?
Marlena: It’s me. It’s me. You saved me. You all–you all saved me.
Demon johnny: That sanctimonious family and all their drivel about love. Well, they may have driven me out of marlena but her grandson is all mine now, and he and i pick up right where marlena and I left off.
[Maniacal laughter] Ah… this is the sound of nature breathing.
Chanel: Johnny? Hey. Hey, are you all right?
Johnny: Uh, yeah, yeah. Fine.
Chanel: Okay, good. I–I was afraid that you still weren’t feeling well.
Johnny: No, no, no, I’m– I’m–I’m–I’m totally fine now. It just, uh, took me a while to get dressed. How do I look?
Chanel: You look great. And that suit! That suit is fire. But johnny, you missed the midnight toast and our kiss.
Johnny: What? Is it–it’s that–it’s that late already? I’m sorry, I must have, uh, lost track of time. But, um, nothing says that you and I can’t have our new year’s moment right now. Happy new year, mrs. Dimera.
Kate: You don’t need to hire steve to–to look for philip.
Steve: Well, actually I’m already on the case.
Kate: So, what does that mean? That someone else hired you to look for philip?
Steve: I got a call from brady earlier today, and he wants me to track kristen down.
Roman: What’s that got to do with philip?
Steve: Brady and chloe believe that kristen framed brady for philip’s murder. Now, if that’s true and I can track her down, she might have the answers we’re looking for.
Sami: I know this seems out of nowhere, and I know that i can be impulsive, but lucas, I–I promise you this time it’s different, okay?
Lucas: God, I hope so.
Sami: I know so. I do. I finally see ej for who he really is. It’s what you’ve been saying to me all along. And now that I’ve seen it, I can’t unsee it. I mean, he’s the kinda man who would kidnap me and throw me in a–a locked room for months. I couldn’t see my family. I couldn’t see all the people that I love. I can’t love someone who would do that to me.
I’m gonna get you back, ej. Whatever it takes. Gabi? Is anyone home?
[Gasping] Lucas? What’s wrong?
Trelegy for copd.
Steve: So the theory is that kristen is so mad at brady for ending things with her, she staged the whole thing.
Kate: There was so much blood.
Roman: Yeah, but, you know, whatever kristen was guilty of in the past, you know, her, uh–generally her M.O. Was not to kill. She’s more into hiding people.
Steve: That’s true. And that’s why I think that kristen is holding philip prisoner somewhere while this thing plays out.
Kate: So you believe that philip’s still alive?
Steve: That’s the premise I’m working off of. And I’ll do everything I can to bring him home to you.
Roman: You okay?
Kate: I’m–I’m sorry, I just–it’s–it’s–it’s just a lot to absorb.
[Sighs] Do you–do you mind if we just call it a night?
Kayla: Of course not.
Kate: Thank you.
Kayla: It was great to see you…
Kayla: And happy new year.
Kayla: I love you.
Roman: I love you. Take good care, baby sis.
Kayla: Yep. Kate.
Kate: Thank you.
Steve: Happy new year, man.
Roman: Happy new year buddy.
Steve: Okay. Kate, if philip’s alive, I’ll deliver him to you personally.
Roman: [Exhales] Well, that’s great news. If anybody can find philip, steve can.
Kate: Steve’s not going to find philip.
Roman: You don’t know that for sure.
Kate: I do know it. I know exactly what happened to philip, and I know exactly where he is.
Allie: This is the best new year’s I’ve had in a really, really long time, maybe ever.
Tripp: Me too.
Allie: But I am wondering what happened to chanel and johnny?
Tripp: If johnny really is sick, maybe I should go check on him.
Allie: He seemed fine before. Maybe we should give them their privacy.
Tripp: Well, that would give us a little more time to celebrate on our own.
Chanel: Hello. What are you doing?
Johnny: I’m trying to make love to my wife. Can you think of a better way to ring in the new year?
Chanel: No, but you’re the one who invited allie and tripp to stay to share a midnight toast that you never showed up for.
Johnny: Oh, yeah. Right, uh…sorry, I–I must have forgot.
Chanel: Are you sure you’re okay?
Johnny: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Fine. So, what do you say we go celebrate this new year?
Lucas: Wrong? There’s nothing–nothing wrong, not at all. I mean, do you have any idea how long I’ve been waiting for this moment?
Sami: [Chuckles] Oh!
Lucas: This is gonna be the best year ever. It’s gonna be a great year.
Sami: Yeah, it is. And I’m so glad, lucas. I’m just so happy I know that i can trust you, I know you’re gonna be honest with me. You are the best man I know.
Lucas: Well, don’t make me out to be a saint, because I’m not, so…
Sami: I know you’re not a saint, but you are my rock. You were there for me during the whole allie situation. I mean, oh, my god, that whole thing that happened with charlie dale? You kept me sane.
Lucas: Well you plead guilty to a crime you didn’t commit, so, eh, not so sane there.
Sami: Yeah, well, maybe sane is a relative term. But then when we were locked together in that dimera dungeon I really thought we were going to die, and–and you were there for me, you comforted me, made love to me. And like an idiot, I still went back to ej. I’ve wasted so much time, and i don’t wanna waste another second.
Lucas: All right, so, what does that mean? What are you saying?
Sami: I wanna leave salem. Now.
Get ready. It’s time for
the savings event of the year.
Roman: [Chuckles] So philip framed brady for his own murder? And that’s why you’ve been holed up in your room? You were hiding philip?
Kate: Yes. Yes, I was. And now victor and I are doing everything we possibly can to get him the help he needs.
Roman: Yeah, well, I’m–I’m all for philip getting help, all right, but are you sure this is the way? There are a lot of people worried about philip, mourning him even. Are you really okay with letting those people think that philip is dead?
Kate: Roman, I am so sorry about it. I really, really am. But…philip is my number one priority, and it’s just a decision I had to make.
Roman: Yeah, a decision you didn’t think you could come to me with?
Kate: Roman, I just didn’t wanna burden you with it. I didn’t wanna force you to lie.
Roman: Kate, listen to me–
[Sighs]–You could’ve told me. You, your well-being, that is my priority.
Kate: Well, you know now along with lucas and–and victor.
Roman: Yeah, would you have told me had I not asked steve to look for philip? Or did that force your hand?
Kate: Roman I feel so guilty about not telling you, I–i really, really do, but you know now, you know, and I–I can’t tell you what a relief it is to me, because now we can go into the new year and there are no secrets between us, none. But please, I have to ask you not to tell anyone about this, because if you do, philip and i could be in a world of trouble.
Marlena: Mmm, you know, I’ve never felt safer than I do right now.
Marlena: I love you so much.
John: Only half as much as i love you, doc.
[Knocking on door] Oh, brother.
Marlena: What? What?
John: Coming! Coming!
Marlena: That better be a pizza.
Steve: Happy new year!
Kayla: Happy new year!
Steve: Hope we’re not stopping by too–too late.
Kayla: We were driving by, and we saw the light on, and we thought we’d like to say happy new year in person.
John: Never too late for you–we’re just enjoying a quiet little celebration at home. Get in here, get in.
Kayla: How are you doing?
Marlena: Um–oh. Oh–[Chuckles]
Marlena: I’m glad you’re here. You know, john has been filling me in on some of the things that happened, and, uh, I just owe you such a huge apology.
Kayla: You don’t owe us anything. As a matter of fact, you’ve already apologized so many times.
Marlena: I couldn’t apologize enough. You know, as I said, john was filling me in on stuff and some of it I remember, and there are so many things that I’ve clearly never realized or–or forgotten. Maybe it’s a very good thing that I’ve forgotten those.
Allie: Well, since johnny and chanel are so occupied, maybe we should just head home.
Johnny: You don’t wanna ring in the new year with your favorite brother?
Tripp: Oh, there you guys are. We were starting to worry.
Allie: Wow, where did you get the suit?
Tripp: Yeah, that is some kinda sartorial statement.
Johnny: Well, chanel and i just got back from the fashion capital of the world. What better souvenir? Except maybe this.
Allie: Well, you seem to be feeling better.
Johnny: Like a million euros, so, uh, let’s get on with the celebrating, shall we?
Allie: Yeah better late than never.
Johnny: Yeah, sorry about that, uh, memory lapse. I totally spaced on the toast thing, um…
Tripp: Hey, nah, I’m glad to see you made a speedy recovery.
Johnny: Absolutely. Nah, it’s just jet lag. Uh, but what better way to cure some jet lag than celebrating with my loved ones? Wife?
Allie: I’d like to make a toast.
Johnny: Ooh, can I stop you there before…
Allie: Okay, very funny. To two of my favorite people in the world, my brother and my sister-in-law, which is so weird to say, but I will get used to it. I wanna apologize again for being a jerk. I love you both so much, and i sincerely hope that you guys have a very long and very happy marriage.
Johnny: Brava. Salud.
Lucas: Hold on, hold on, uh, of course I wanna be with you. I would do anything to be with you. But why do we have to move? We live here. Our family’s here. Our daughter’s here. Our grandchild?
Sami: Yeah but this is about you and me right now. We should be able to be together with no distractions.
Justin: As in ej you mean?
Sami: Well, yes, fine, ej. I mean, he’s out on bail. When he finds out that we’re together, he could come after you the same way he came after me.
Lucas: Fine, let him come after me, I don’t care. I can handle ej. I don’t sweat it.
Sami: I know that you can. I’m just saying, we don’t have to put up with him, right? We could go to europe if we want to. We’re adults, we can do whatever we want. We could go to phoenix and visit will and sonny and ari. We could buy a house somewhere out west.
Lucas: Wait a minute, you wanna buy a place?
Sami: Yeah, sure, why not? But you know what, I don’t care where we are, lucas, as long as I’m with you.
Lucas: As long as we’re not here, you mean.
Sami: You know what we could say goodbye to everyone first thing tomorrow morning and be gone before ej even realizes what happened. What do you say?
Woman: Life’s been hard enough.
Roman: Kate… I would never wanna do anything to hurt you, but if brady went to jail?
Kate: No, no, no, no, no. That won’t happen. After victor and I rescinded the document we signed to declare philip dead, it forced trask to drop the charges against brady. So brady’s free, philip’s getting the help he needs, and victor and me and lucas and you are now the only ones who know that philip’s alive.
Roman: Yeah. I just wish the people who care about philip could know the truth too, just for their own peace of mind.
Kate: It’s too risky.
Roman: Yeah. Yeah, I know that, yeah. I’m just glad you trust me enough to open up to me like this.
[Sighs] You’re a mother who is just trying to protect her son, and I definitely get that. So, yes, kate… I promise. I will keep your secret.
Marlena: You know, what– what I–what I do know about the havoc that I wreaked just terrifies me. And I don’t know how I ever apologize for putting tripp in a–in a coma or–or–or what i did to you.
Steve: No tripp’s just fine.
Kayla: And-and I’m fine too. It was a–it was a simple bump on the head, nothing more. I’ll tell you what really shocked more, was when…
Marlena: Was when what?
Kayla: Never mind, you know, I really shouldn’t have brought it up.
Marlena: No, it’s all right. You were shocked when…what?
Kayla: When you kissed me.
Marlena: When I what?
Chanel: I’m so happy you came over, horton.
Allie: I wasn’t sure how you guys would feel about us just showing up, but I felt horrible for going off on you and johnny and the way that I did, so i had to come over and make things right.
Johnny: This just sealed the deal.
Allie: Well, I’m just happy everything’s cool with us again. You too, dupree.
Tripp: Is that still your name or, uh, are you a dimera now?
Chanel: Mmm, I do love being mrs. Dimera.
Johnny: Yeah but it’s such a hassle to change your ids and–
Chanel: Not for a woman in love.
Allie: Well, whatever you decide, I’m still going to call you dupree, because dimera just doesn’t have the same ring.
Johnny: Well, I don’t care what anybody calls her, as long as I can call you “wife.”
Chanel: Are you sure you’re feeling okay? You still seem a little off.
Johnny: Busy few weeks. I’m just–just tired.
Tripp: Are you sure? I can–I can check you out.
Johnny: Uh, no, no, it’s fine. Just–like I said, just, uh–
[Exhales]–A little jet lag. A little sleep’s all I need, especially with my beautiful wife next to me.
Allie: All right, well, I’m going to take that as our cue to go.
[Laughs] You do know how lucky you are, right?
Johnny: I do.
Allie: And you do know how brave you are, right?
Tripp: Well, congratulations you guys. I can’t think of a better way to start the new year than mr. And mrs. Dimera.
Tripp: Happy new year.
Johnny: You too. And now this is the first time all year that I have had my wife all to myself.
Lucas: It–it–it sounds amazing.
Sami: Fantastic, now let’s get you packed, we gotta go.
Lucas: But wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, wait.
Sami: What? What?
Lucas: We need to think this through a little bit, you know?
Sami: What is there to think about?
Lucas: I–I just think we’re going too fast is all.
Sami: Too fast?
Sami: Lucas, you and I have known each other for more than half of our lives. I love you, you love me. What’s stopping us? What’s stopping you?
Lucas: Nothing, nothing is stopping me.
Sami: Nobody knows you better than I do, lucas roberts and that is definitely your “something’s bothering you” face. What is it?
Lucas: And despite all the pain that ej’s put her through, she’s–she’s not ready to give up on him yet.
Allie: I just don’t get that. I mean, she’s put up with so much mistreatment from him, but to kidnap her? I mean, to keep her locked away against her will for all that time? It’s–it’s just cruel. Sadistic, really. I don’t know about mom, but i will never forgive him for it.
Sami: Okay, look I know it’s hard, but we can’t screw this up again, okay? If this is going to work, we have to be honest with each other, both of us. And I know it’s sometime really hard, but we’re going to do this right, okay? So, lucas… what’s bothering you?
Plaque psoriasis, the tightness, stinging…
[Chuckles] I kissed you? I don’t–I don’t under–what– how did that happen?
Steve: Well, um, the devil transformed into me, and then–
Kayla: And as soon as the kiss was over, he transformed back into you.
Marlena: Well, that’s a good thing, hm?
Kayla: Like I said, I–i shouldn’t have brought it up.
Marlena: No, no, it–that’s all right. It’s fine.
[Chuckles] I just have always thought of myself as enlightened, and… this is a first.
Kayla: For me too.
Steve: Are these two just friends?
Kayla: Oh would you stop it? Honestly.
Steve: I’m sorry. Kayla thinks it’s too soon to joke about it.
Marlena: Well, I’m glad we can talk about it, you know, just as adults, talk about what happened and be open and frank with each other, and, uh, you know, if it’s awkward, we can even make a joke about it. So, to answer your immature and insensitive question…
Marlena: No, we’re just friends.
Tripp: Hey. Hey, how’s henry?
Allie: He’s sleeping like an angel.
Tripp: Well, I hope you aren’t too sleepy.
Allie: What did you have in mind? That’s exactly what I was thinking.
Tripp: Mm, that’s good to know. Maybe we can keep this celebration going all day tomorrow.
Allie: And miss the bowl games?
Tripp: Aww, you’re right, you’re right, I did promise henry I’d watch the parades with him.
Allie: You’re so good to him and me.
Tripp: I might be very good to you right now.
Johnny: [Clears throat]
Chanel: Mm–okay, you are going straight to bed.
Johnny: Ooh, yes please.
Chanel: I meant sleep. But first I wanna make a toast.
Chanel: To our first couple of weeks as a married couple. I have never been happier.
Johnny: To making you happy every single day for the rest of our lives.
Chanel: [Gasps] Johnny, are you okay?
Lucas: Listen to me, I am all for honesty. I am, it’s important. It’s–it’s very important. There’s something that you need to know–
Roman: Happy new year.
Kayla: Are the two of you celebrating new year’s together?
Roman: Yeah what’s going on?
Sami: Well, I wanted to wish lucas actually a happy new year because I think this is going to be the best new year in a very long time for both of us…at least I hope so. What do you say, lucas?
Lucas: Well, I say that, um, you guys are the lucky ones. You know, um, you’ll be the first to find out that sami and I are back together, and not only that, we’re, uh–we’re leaving salem…tomorrow.
Serena: It’s my 3:10
Roman: So, you two are back together again? Since when?
Lucas: Just now.
Kate: And you’re leaving town tomorrow?
Sami: We are.
Kate: But isn’t that a little…
Lucas: Impulsive, it is.
Kate: Ah, well, that’s one word for it.
Lucas: Right, I know it might seem like that, but you know sami and I have loved each other forever. You know, we’re just uh, trying to make up for wasted time, right?
Sami: [Laughs] Just like you and kate, dad.
Roman: Yeah, well, uh, guess it runs in the family.
Sami: Kate… I hope you can be happy for us.
Kate: If lucas is happy.
Roman: Well, then I am thrilled for both of you.
Sami: Thanks, daddy.
Allie: You hear that?
Allie: Silence. Peace. Right now in this moment, everything is perfect. And after the year we had, i mean, with all the scary stuff, wouldn’t it be great if it was always like this?
Tripp: Well, then that is my new year’s resolution, to make life as perfect as I can for you.
Allie: You already do.
Marlena: I must say, for the first time in a very long time, I’m feeling relaxed and calm. Looking forward to the future, a wonderful life with the love of my life.
John: Amen to that.
Kayla: Yeah, well, I’m just, uh–I’m–I think all of us just want things to be a little less exciting around here.
John: Yeah, well look–look, um, before you two go, I wanted to, uh–I wanted to thank you. Um, you know, there were times in this madness here when I–i thought that I had lost her forever. Hell, there were–there were times when I didn’t know if i was even going to survive, or any of us, but… you just need to know it was your love and support that pulled us through to the other side, so, thank you.
Kayla: Well, we’re just grateful that you’re both back.
Steve: And we thank god that the devil’s reign of terror is finally over.
Chanel: May–maybe I should take you to the er.
Johnny: Uh, no, no, just, uh–it’s probably just the franciacorta going straight to my head.
Chanel: Okay. Well, if you won’t get checked out, then the sooner we get you tucked in, the better.
Johnny: You go on up, I’ll– I’ll be there in a second.
Chanel: You promise?
Johnny: Yes, I promise.
Chanel: I love you, husband.
Johnny: And I love you, wife.
Demon johnny: Felice anno nuovo, nonno. And I promise you, your little giovanni is going to make you very proud this year.
