Xander: That was–

Gwen: Oh, shh. No, no, no. Don’t talk. Don’t talk.

Xander: All right. Now?

Gwen: No. Not yet.

[Sighs] Okay, now.

Xander: Well, I was just gonna ask, are you finally convinced that I’m over sarah and totally committed to you?

Gwen: Oh, I don’t know. I might need a bit more convincing.

Xander: More? Really?

Gwen: Yeah, unless you don’t have it in you.

Xander: I’ll do whatever it takes. How about shower first?

Gwen: Yeah, go get it started. Nice and hot for me.

[Knock at door] Oh.

[Water running]

[Knock at door] Yes. Okay, fine, I’m coming. I’m coming.


[Knock at door]

Kristen: Hello, brady. Did you miss me?

Steve: Oh, yeah. We got ourselves a bird’s-eye view of the convent from here. If kristen dimera is masquerading as one of the sisters, we’ll be able to spot her right away. Wat do you think, sweetness?

Kayla: Forgive me, father, for I have sinned. I’ve been having impure thoughts.

Nicole: Get it together, nicole. Get it together. When are you gonna forget about that night?

Rafe: I know I won’T.

[Sexy music]

Ava: Rafe. Rafe?

Duke: Rafe isn’t here. Looks like it’s just you and me, pilgrim.

Ava: Duke.

Duke: You murdered me, ava. Cut off my head with this pair of scissors. I’m here to do the same thing to you.

Ava: No.


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

[Soft orchestration]

Kayla: Steve?

Steve: Over here. How was your nap, sweetness?

Kayla: A little intense. I think that cacio de pepe I had for lunch gave me spicy dreams.

Nicole: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. We can’T.

Rafe: Sure we can.

Nicole: What about ava?

Rafe: I can’t stop thinking about you, and you can’t stop thinking about me. Why fight it?

Nicole: Let’s not.

Ava: You stay away from me. I’m warning you.

Duke: Nowhere to run, ava. Wonder how you’ll look stuffed.

Ava: Keep your filthy paws off me, you overstuffed beanie baby.

Duke: What’re you gonna do with that?

Ava: I will cut off something much worse than your head.

Duke: I’d like to see you try. Gotcha.

Ava: No.


Duke: Ahh! You’re gonna pay for that, goldilocks.

Rafe: Ava, are you okay?

Brady: Kristen, what are you doing here?

Kristen: I’m here to do to you what I did to philip.

Brady: So it was you. Did you hurt him? Did you kill him? What’d you do?

Kristen: [Laughs] What do you think, brady?

Brady: I think we need to talk about this.

Kristen: Ooh. Guess what? No more talking. Hmm? Mm-mm. You see, you cut out my heart, brady. And now I’m gonna cut out yours.

Gwen: Sarah?

Sarah: Hello, gwen.

Gwen: What are you doing here?

Sarah: [Laughs] You know what I’m doing here, bitch. I came to take back my man.

Xander: Sarah? You’re here.

Gwen: Xander. Xander, no. You said that you were totally committed to me.


Xander: Gwen? What’s wrong? My asthma felt anything but normal.

Xander: Gwen, are you all right? What’s going on?

Gwen: Yeah, I’m fine. I’m fine. I just…had another nasty nightmare is all.

Xander: Oh. Called out my name. I hope I wasn’t the source of the nastiness. Do I need to apologize?

Gwen: No. I called out your name because, well, you’re the only person in this whole cruel, bitter world who knows how to make me feel better.

Xander: Oh, so I was the hero of the piece, eh?

Gwen: You’re always my hero.

Xander: Well, the way you bolted upright, it must have been a really scary dream.

Gwen: It was.

Xander: You’re the toughest person I know. I can’t imagine what would scare you. What was it about?

Gwen: I don’t really remember all the details. Honestly, I don’t really feel like revisiting it anyway, so…

Xander: Fair enough. Probably better to stick with reality. So what can I do to help make the dream go away?

Gwen: Well, for starters, you can chuck that towel away and make love to me.

Xander: Yes, ma’am.

[Knock at door]

Gwen: Oh, don’t– don’t answer it.

Xander: Aren’t you curious about who it could be?

Gwen: No. Doesn’t matter. Everything that we need is right here, isn’t it?

[Knock at door]

Xander: I don’t think whoever it is is gonna go away.

Gwen: Okay, fine. I’ll answer it. I’ll answer it.

Brady: Nicole? Nic. Nic. There you are. Hi.

Nicole: Brady. How long have you been standing there?

Brady: Said your name about three times.

Nicole: Really?

Brady: Yeah.

Nicole: I guess I didn’t hear you.

Brady: Well, you must have been laser focused on those marketing reports.

Nicole: No, actually, I was thinking about something else.

Brady: Must have been important.

Nicole: Not really. Anyway, it doesn’t matter.

Brady: Doesn’t matter? You seem a little flushed. Let me take a stab at this. Were you by chance thinking about the time that you and rafe had sex on that conference table?

Ava: Sorry. I was–bad dream.

Rafe: Oh, must’ve been a rough one.

Ava: Why do you say that?

Rafe: Well, for starters, when I came in, you were growling.

Ava: Growling?

Rafe. Yeah. Yeah, like a lion. And you’re still clutching a nail file.

Ava: Oh. I…

[Chuckles] I don’t remember. Oh. Oh, I didn’t hear you leave this morning.

Rafe: Well, you were sound asleep, so I decided to make a sweet bits run.

Ava: [Sighs] Cappuccino?

Rafe: Mm-hmm. And your favorite. Hmm? Bear claw.

Ava: I think I’ll just stick with the coffee for now.

Rafe: Okay. Okay.

Ava: So why were you up so early this morning?

Rafe: Couldn’t sleep.

Ava: Guilty conscience?

Rafe: What?

Ava: I’m kidding. Come on, what could a good catholic boy like you possibly have to feel guilty about?

Kayla: Um, is there anything to report on kristen?

Steve: Well, as a matter of fact, while you were sleeping off our sinfully delicious lunch, the mother superior called.

Kayla: Oh. With good news?

Steve: Yeah. Turns out our prayers have been answered. There’s room at the convent for sister mary elizabeth.

Kayla: That’s great.

Steve: So why don’t you get out of those clothes and into your habit?

Kayla: Yeah. Um…

Steve: Something wrong, baby?

Kayla: I think I just– I just need a moment or two.

[Knock at door]

Kristen: You wanted to see me, mother superior?

Mother superior: Yes, my child. I wanted to share some news with you.

Kristen: Oh. Good news, I hope?

Mother superior: Definitely. You see, just as we did for you, we’ve decided to provide sanctuary for sister mary elizabeth.

Kristen: Oh, hallelujah and praise the lord.

Mother superior: Well, you’re pleased.

Kristen: I’m overjoyed. It is blessed news, mother superior.

Mother superior: I’m glad you agree. I’d like you to help me begin to prepare for her arrival.

Kristen: It’d be my pleasure.

Nicole: This conference table– I don’t know what you’re talking about.

Brady: Nicole, come on. I’m not being judgmental. Look, I’m just asking as a good friend.

Nicole: Well, it seems one of my other good friends has loose lips.

Brady: Don’t be mad at chloe, okay? She didn’t mean to let it slip out.

Nicole: Yeah, well, she did after I swore her to secrecy.

Brady: Well, she put up a good fight, but I kinda pried it out of her. I’m sorry, okay?

Nicole: It’s fine. It’s fine. It’s really marlena’s fault anyway.

Brady: Marlena’s?

Nicole: Well, the demon was inside of her, technically. When your stepmom was possessed by the devil, she brought deimos back from the dead to terrorize me.

Brady: That was not where I thought this story was going.

Nicole: You think I’m crazy.

Brady: No. Come on, marlena was possessed by the devil twice. At this point, there’s pretty much nothing that i won’t believe. You must have been terrified by that.

Nicole: Well, I-I thought I was losing my mind. So I called rafe, and he came over and he made me feel safe.

Brady: He comforted you.

Nicole: Well, it started out that way. And the next thing I knew, we were on the conference table tearing off each other’s clothes, and… well, you know the rest.

Rafe: You know, you’re not the only one who’s accused me of having something weighing on my conscience.

Ava: Really?

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Ava: Who else?

Rafe: Well, the da and internal affairs have launched an investigation into my policing practices.

Ava: Okay, that’s crazy. What could they possibly suspect you of?

Rafe: Well, one perp has accused me of planting evidence.

Ava: Well, they’re obviously lying, right?

Rafe: Of course. Yeah. But there’s a second accusation. That perp is claiming that I framed him.

Ava: Okay. Why would all this be coming up right now at the same time? You think it’s a coincidence?

Rafe: Unlikely. No. So either these guys got together and decided that they wanna make me look like a bad cop, or…

Ava: Someone put them up to it.

Rafe: Yeah.

Ava: Yeah.

Rafe: Yeah.

Ava: But who would hate you so much that they would go through all the trouble to ruin your life?

Gwen: What do you want?

Abigail: It’s nice to see you too, gwen.

Gwen: What do you want?

Abigail: I’m here to speak with xander.

Gwen: Well, he’s a bit busy at the moment, so if you’d like to come back tomorrow–

Xander: Did you find something?

Abigail: I did. I tracked down our missing person. My plaque psoriasis…

Gwen: You found sarah?

Abigail: No. No. Not yet. But I did find ned grainger.

Gwen: Who is ned grainger?

Xander: He’s the pilot that flew a private jet out of salem the day that sarah disappeared.

Gwen: Xander, sarah didn’t disappear. She left.

Abigail: What’s the difference?

Gwen: The difference is that that sounds like something very nefarious happened to her. So she wanted to be alone. I mean, what sort of crime is being committed?

Abigail: Well, we’ll see what ned says. I’m meeting him at the pub in 30 minutes. So I’m gonna show him sarah’s picture and–

Gwen: Don’t you think that’s a waste of time, darling? I mean, what’s this ned person going to say anyway?

Xander: I’ll put on some clothes. I wanna come with you.

Gwen: Xander.

Xander: Gwen, I-I wanna speak to this pilot myself and make sure he’s telling the truth, okay?

Gwen: [Sighs] You’re really enjoying yourself, aren’t you?

Abigail: Excuse me?

Gwen: Oh, come on. I know exactly what you are doing. You want xander to find sarah so that he will leave me and go be with her.

Rafe: I have some ideas about who might be setting me up.

Ava: Wait, you don’t think that I did this to you, do you?

Rafe: Wait, what? Why would you say that?

Ava: Well, because you already accused me of mutilating that teddy bear that you and nicole share custody of, which was very hurtful, quite frankly.

Rafe: Okay, I’m sorry. I am sorry. You told me that you didn’t do it; I believe you.

Ava: Okay. I appreciate that.

Rafe: Yeah.

Ava: But I don’t know why I would possibly have any reason to be upset with you or nicole. I mean, you two are the ones I trust most in this world.

Nicole: Rafe and ava are together, and I accept that. And what happened between us was just a one-time thing.

Brady: You don’t have to explain that to me.

Nicole: I just want you to understand that I never meant for this to happen, and it won’t ever happen again, and we agreed to keep our distance.

Brady: You agreed. Is that what you want?

Nicole: What are you asking me?

Brady: Nicole, I’m asking you, do you wanna be with rafe or not?

Nicole: No.

Brady: No?

Nicole: Yes. No. I don’t know. I don’t–

Brady: Well, at least you’re sure about it, so that’s good.

Nicole: It’s not funny, okay? I feel like I’m going crazy.

Brady: You’re not. You’re not. I’m sorry. I can see you’re struggling with this.

Nicole: Brady, what is wrong with me? I can’t stop thinking about it. I had a dream this morning about rafe.

Brady: What kinda dream?

Nicole: That kinda dream.

Brady: Oh, that–okay.

Nicole: We were here on the conference table, and it was more intense than the first time, and it’s just the way he kissed me–

Brady: Okay, okay. I got it. I got it.

Nicole: Sorry. I’m sorry. I just got carried away ’cause–

Brady: I mean, I get it. It’s hard to let go sometimes. This morning, I had a dream about kristen.

Kayla: Okay. No more impure thoughts. You have a job to do, sister mary elizabeth. Oh. Oh, dear god.

Steve: Sorry, baby. Didn’t mean to startle you. Are you okay?

Kayla: Yeah. Yeah, no, I’m fine.

Steve: Are you having doubts about doing this?

Kayla: No. No, I-I–

Steve: Well, I have to tell you, I am.

Kayla: What?

Steve: Kristen dimera may be hiding in the convent, but some habits, pun intended, are hard to break.

Kayla: You still think she’s dangerous.

Steve: Mm-hmm. To paraphrase matthew 7:15, the woman is a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

Kayla: Wow. That’s impressive, father nichols.

Steve: If I’m gonna play the part, I have to get prepared. Which brings me to my point. You.

Kayla: What about me?

Steve: Sweetness, this is what I do. Okay? I am trained for this kinda thing.

Kayla: And I’m not.

Steve: No, you’re not. Baby, listen, I’m not doubting your bravery or your talents. I know what you’re capable of. But I also know what kristen is capable of.

Kayla: May I remind you that I just locked horns and lips with the devil himself.

Steve: No, no, please don’T.

Kayla: Well, I’m just saying that after being that close to evil, I’m not afraid of anybody on this planet. Not even kristen dimera.

Steve: Okay. Okay, baby, listen. If we’re gonna do this you have to promise me that when you’re inside, you’ll look for evidence that kristen is there, but you won’t look for her.

Kayla: What if I run across her?

Steve: Do not approach. Do not confront her. You get the hell out of there as fast as you can, preferably without her seeing you.

Kayla: Okay. You have my word. As your wife and as a woman of god.

Mother superior: Now then, is everything prepared for the arrival of our guest?

Kristen: It is. It is. I was just looking at some scripture and saying a prayer for father nichols and sister mary elizabeth.

Mother superior: Aww, how very kind. I’m sure they’ll appreciate it.

Kristen: Well, I promise that I will move mountains to accommodate our new sister.

Mother superior: I know you will. Looking to get back in your type 2 diabetes zone?

Ava: I can’t even imagine how upsetting this must be for you. I mean, after all, it’s your reputation at stake.

Rafe: I’m gonna clear my name.

Ava: Yeah. I know you will. I want you to know that no matter what happens, I will always believe in you.

Rafe: Thanks for that.

Ava: Yeah. I mean, you believed in me when everyone else questioned my character. When the whole world saw me as a criminal and a thug, you moved me into your house and you made me feel loved. Nothing is more important to me than loyalty.

Rafe: Me neither. You haven’t touched your bear claw.

Ava: Well, I am in the mood for something sweet. But I don’t think that’s gonna satisfy me.

Rafe: Oh, no? What will?

Nicole: You had a sex dream about kristen?

Brady: Whoa, whoa. No, no. My dream was not as friendly as the one that you had about rafe.

Nicole: Oh, so you had a nightmare.

Brady: You could call it that, sure.

Nicole: Well, kristen’s a nightmare in real life. So there’s that.

Brady: Yeah, well, she’s always been my nightmare.

Nicole: Are you thinking about her again after everything she’s done?

Brady: She’s rachel’s mother, nicole, okay? I’m always going to– I’m always gonna love her.

Nicole: But you’re never going back to her again, right?

Brady: No, no. No, those days are over.

Nicole: Are you sure?

Brady: Yeah, I’m sure. I’m pretty certain she had me framed for philip’s murder. So that’s a deal breaker in my book.

Nicole: Well, I’m glad to hear it.

Brady: I even have steve looking for her. And hopefully, we can get to the truth as to what happened to philip.

Nicole: You know, in some way, I wish that she’d be gone forever. But I would like to see her brought to justice for what she did to me, for what she did to you and to philip and everyone else in this town.

Brady: We’ll see.

Nicole: Has steve had any luck tracking her down?

Brady: I talked to him last night, and he’s in italy.

Nicole: Italy?

Brady: Yeah. And he has a lead. So far, he has not found kristen.

Kayla: Thank you for taking me in on such short notice, mother superior.

Mother superior: God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.

Steve: Psalm 46.

Kayla: Oh, one of my favorites.

Mother superior: Mine as well, sister.

Kayla: I was just telling father nichols that knowing our scripture prepares us for any and all of life’s challenges.

Mother superior: Amen, sister.

Kayla: Amen.

Steve: Amen indeed.

Abigail: Would you take it easy? Me helping xander find sarah has nothing to do with you. I already told you that.

Gwen: Yeah, you know, I didn’t believe you then, and I don’t believe you now.

Abigail: Believe what you want. I’m doing it for aunt maggie. She asked me to help her as a journalist. And yes, I do believe that there’s a story there.

Gwen: Really? So you’re, what, you’re doing this for your “journalistic integrity” to plant these seeds of this wild conspiracy into my boyfriend’s head?

Abigail: It’s not a conspiracy theory.

Gwen: Really? Are you saying that sarah was just taken from salem?

Abigail: What if she was?

Gwen: She wasn’t, abigail. She walked out on rex, just like she walked out on xander. She didn’t want anything to have to do with him, and now xander has moved on. But you are pulling him back in. You are dragging him all around bloody town talking to randos and getting him all worked up.

Abigail: Okay. Gwen, I’m sorry if this is inconvenient or upsetting for you. But it just so happens that the circumstances of sarah’s disappearance from salem have left people who care about her with a lot of questions.

Gwen: Questions?

Abigail: Yes, questions. And if you’re so sure she left of her own free will, then what does it matter to you if I find her anyway? She already told xander she doesn’t wanna be with him. Xander’s made it very clear that he does wanna be with you, right? So unless you have a reason to doubt that… it’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.

Gwen: Xander loves me. And there’s nothing you or anyone can do to stop that.

Abigail: Fine. I have no interest in changing that.

Gwen: Come on, abigail. Let’s just be honest with each other.

Abigail: Why the hell would i not be honest about this?

Gwen: Because you’re still not over me sleeping with chad.

Abigail: Chad and I are fine.

Gwen: But you and I aren’T. You claim that you accepted my apology, but you never did. You just stuffed it down and you waited for your time to get back at me.

Abigail: You sound paranoid, gwen.

Gwen: I’m just protective. Unlike you, I wasn’t handed everything in my life. I had to fight for all that I have.

Abigail: Well, let me assure you, there is no one trying to take anything from you. We are just trying to find sarah.

Gwen: Don’t you think that if sarah just wanted to be found by xander or anyone, she would have just turned up by now?

Abigail: Assuming that she’s able to.

Gwen: Now who sounds paranoid? Why can’t you just let the woman be, abigail? And why can’t you just let me have a tiny bit of happiness for the first time in my life?

Xander: Everything okay here?

Gwen: Peachy. Right. Why don’t you go dash off to find this ned grainger person, and then you and I can finish off what we started before we were rudely interrupted by my sister.

Xander: That sounds like a fantastic plan.

Gwen: It’s nice to see you, abigail.

Abigail: Lovely to see you too.

Mother superior: Father nichols, I appreciate your help in delivering sister mary elizabeth to us, but I’m afraid the time has come for you to leave.

Steve: Oh. Well, I thought–

Mother superior: Rules are rules, father.

Steve: All right. Well, thank you for all of your help, reverend mother. Okay, sweet– sweet child of god, please take care of yourself. Stay safe.

Kayla: I promise I will, father.

Mother superior: I’ll see you out.

Brady: Yeah, I pretty much accepted the fact that I’m gonna keep having these nightmares about kristen until steve finds her.

Nicole: Well, hopefully he’ll find philip too.

Brady: Hopefully.

Nicole: Yeah.

Brady: Unfortunately, I don’t see you not having these dreams about rafe anytime soon.

Nicole: Well, the good news is, I’m having trouble falling asleep anyway because of these memories. So no escaping.

[Both laugh] Oh, god.

Brady: You know you’re gonna have to come to terms with how you’re feeling about rafe sooner or later, right?

Nicole: I tried. I tried to move on with ej.

Brady: Yeah, that was a great idea.

Nicole: Okay. All right. It was a big mistake. One I will not make again.

Brady: Uh-huh. Are you sure you can’t just, you know, be with rafe?

Nicole: I care about rafe. And I care about ava. And I’m not gonna come between what they have. Just have to find a way to get him out of my head.

Rafe: You are making it really hard for me to get to work.

Ava: [Laughs] Then I’m doing my job.

Rafe: Yes. You know, it’s always great between us, but that was– I mean, you were–

Ava: Inspired.

Rafe: Yeah. Oh, and before I forget, there was a package came for you.

Ava: Yeah?

Rafe: Mm-hmm.

Ava: From who?

Rafe: I don’t know, okay? It’s on the kitchen table.

Ava: Well, thank you.

Rafe: Okay, what are you doing? What are you doing?

Ava: I’m gonna try to keep you from leaving.

Rafe: Okay. Oh, my god. No. I really have to go. I mean it. I gotta go.

Ava: No.

Both: Okay.

Ava: I understand.

Rafe: Okay.

Ava: You sure?

Rafe: Yeah.

Ava: Rafe.

Rafe: Yeah.

Ava: I know you’ll find out who’s trying to hurt you.

Rafe: I know I will.

Ava: The truth always has a way of coming out.

Rafe: Yeah. Woman: I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

[Dramatic music]

Nicole: Ugh. I have got to get you out of this office.

[Grunting] Oh, my god. What is this thing made of, solid oak? Oh, my– damn it!

Rafe: Need a hand?

Kayla: You must have some kind of roster or softball team photo or something.

Steve: Yeah, brady. Okay, listen, kayla is on the inside. I really hope she’s okay in there. Yeah. Yeah, I’ll keep you posted.

Kristen: Kayla will be just fine, father nichols.

Steve: Kristen.

Kristen: You’re the one who needs to pray for absolution.

Steve: Whoa. Hold on.

Kristen: Uh-uh. It’s time. It’s time you’re given your last rights, patch.

Abigail: Are you sorry you couldn’t hire my uncle steve to help you find sarah?

Xander: Well, I’ll admit he was my first choice, but so far, I’m very impressed with my second choice.

Abigail: Well, I haven’t cost you a dime.

Xander: That’s the best bit.

Abigail: Gee, thanks, I think.

Xander: Do you really think this guy’s gonna show?

Ned: Abigail dimera?

Abigail: Mr. Grainger.

Ned: Ned.

Abigail: Ned. Thanks for coming down here, ned. This is xander cook.

Ned: Nice to meet you. So what’s this all about?

Abigail: Well, we just have a few questions about a flight that you took last march. Do you happen to remember flying this woman out of salem?

Xander: Her name is sarah horton.

Gwen: Ava, where the bloody hell are you? I need your help. Turns out that abigail is not going to rest until she finds sarah, and that means– well, that means that it’s only a matter of time until i lose xander. Please, please phone me back. Phone me back.

[Knock at door] Coming.
