Xander: I think we should think about getting out of bed.

Gwen: What? Do you have somewhere to go?

Xander: In fact, I do.

Gwen: Where might that be?

Xander: It’s a surprise.

Gwen: Well, can I at least have a hint?

Xander: Sure. It rhymes with sing.

Gwen: Uh-huh, bling?

Xander: Mean, you’re on the right track.

Gwen: Ding?

Xander: In a sense.

Gwen: Oh, my god. Ring, ring. You’re gonna get me an engagement ring.

Xander: Ding, ding, ding, ding. Well, to be precise, I’m gonna begin the process of window shopping for an engagement ring. So yeah, if you have any hints you wanna drop, now would be the appropriate time.

Gwen: Oh, my god, xander. You are so, so sweet and so utterly charming, but we don’t have any money for a really nice ring. I swear I don’t need anything fancy.

Xander: You deserve it. You deserve the fanciest ring on the planet.

Gwen: Okay. I won’t fight you on it.

Xander: I won’t be long. Try and stay of trouble while I’m gone.

Gwen: I’ll do my best.

Ej: Ironic, isn’t it? That of all the crimes I’ve committed in my life, here I am about to be locked up for the one I did not.

Belle: Well, I’ve already filed the papers to get the appeal rolling.

Ej: At least now I understand why chad changed his mind about testifying on my behalf. But what I don’t understand is why he so certain he saw me kissing abigail at the courthouse when I never went near her.

Belle: Doesn’t make sense.

Ej: If only I could just see him and then explain–

Belle: Oh no, no, no. You don’t wanna do that. He’s got a lot going on with abigail right now.

Ej: What do you mean?

Belle: Well, shawn got a call from chad last night. He got a text–ostensibly from abigail–saying she went to boston to visit her parents.

Ej: And?

Belle: And someone else must have sent that because abigail never went to boston. And now she’s vanished without a trace.

Chad: It’s like finding a needle in a 300-mile haystack. You could be anywhere, but I’m not giving up, abby. I will find you, whatever it takes.

[Soft music]


Kayla: Oh!

Steve: What the hell was that?

Kayla: I think someone slammed the door. Were you sleeping, too?

Steve: Sorry, baby. I shouldn’t have dosed off like that.

Kayla: It’s understandable. You were clobbered on the head, and kristen drugged you.

Steve: And I can’t tell if it’s day or night.

Kayla: Was this here before?

Steve: What? No, maybe she snuck in here while we were sleeping.

Kayla: Well, at least she brought us some provisions.

Steve: And a few other things.

[Cell phone rings]

Kristen: Hello?

[Cell phone rings] Damn it, abigail was right. The cops are closing in.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Shawn: Hey, uncle steve, it’s me. I know brady hired you to look for kristen; I’m sure you’re hot on her trail.

Kristen: Very hot.

Shawn: I’m calling because abigail went missing yesterday, and we have reason to believe kristen is involved. But brady says he hasn’t heard from you lately, so please give me a call when you get this.

Abigail: I told you they’d be looking for me.

[Cell phone beeps]

[Soft music]

Gwen: Here we go.

[Cell phone beeps] “Kristen or whoever you are, I know you have my wife, and you’ve disabled tracking on her phone. Please have some compassion. She’s a mother, a wife, a daughter, a sister. I’m begging you. I’ll do anything you want. Just please, let her come home to her family.”

Xander: Stop being so sentimental. Sarah is never coming back to you. And the only way you can afford to buy gwen an engagement ring is to sell this one.

[Tense music]

Sarah: Why can’t the man I love whisk me away on the back of a stallion? Or at least a raft.

Limu emu

Belle: Chad thinks that kristen might have had something to do with abigail’s disappearance.

Ej: Why would my sister kidnap abigail?

Belle: Well, apparently abigail was on the trail of what happened to sarah, and that led her to kristen. I mean, honestly I stopped trying to figure out kristen’s motivations.

Ej: Well, if she did have something to do with abigail’s disappearance, chad should find some comfort.

Belle: Why do you say that?

Ej: Because abigail is a dimera. Family first and all that. Kristen won’t hurt her. We may stab one another in the back figuratively, but never literally.

Belle: Never?

Ej: Well, there was that one time with poor benjy. And renee. But both those incidents were andre’s fault.

Belle: Well, I do hope that kristen has abigail because shawn said that steve and kayla were on her trail. And if anyone can find kristen dimera, it’s them.

Kayla: Let’s see, you know, when it comes to kidnapping, kristen sure provides a1 service.

Steve: She’s had experience.

Kayla: Look at this, three different options for sweetener for our coffee.

Steve: So thoughtful of her.

Kayla: And look at this, our driver’s licenses.

Steve: Yeah, too bad there’s no place to drive to.

Kayla: Excellent point.

Steve: I can tell you right now, she didn’t return my phone.

Kayla: Well, you probably wouldn’t have cell service here, anyway.

Steve: Oh, whoa, whoa. What are you doing? You can’t eat that.

Kayla: Why not? It looks fresh.

Steve: It could have drugs or poison in it.

Kayla: I’m starving. The last time I ate anything was one of the communion wafers that I snuck at the convent. And that was days ago. I mean, aren’t you hungry?

Steve: Yeah, but not hungry enough to risk being poisoned.

Kayla: You know, I’m willing to take the chance. Thank you.

Abigail: Must be stressful feeling those walls just closing in on you. Like I said, just a matter of time.

Kristen: And like I said, if anyone comes looking for you, my house has plenty of rooms.

Abigail: Is that really what you want? You want a house full of kidnapping victims?

Kristen: No, I want to be left alone. I mean, if people would just mind their own damn business, none of this would be happening.

Abigail: So I found a whole wing of the house that’s locked off. What’s in there, sarah? My aunt kayla and uncle steve?

Kristen: No, my bedroom. And I have the only key. No offense, abigail, but I didn’t wanna wake up in the middle of the night with you looming over me.

Abigail: You can’t keep us here forever, you know?

Kristen: I wouldn’t be so sure about that.

[Tense music]

Chad: “I’m sorry, but I can’t help you.” That’s it. That’s it? I’m sorry? “Whoever you are, if you harm one hair on my wife’s head, I will find you. And I will kill you. I do not care if you are family.” Send.

Shawn: Whoa, what’s going on?

Gwen: Sorry, chad, but I can’t do anything to help abigail now. So bugger off.

Alice loves the scent of gain so much,

Shawn: “I will find you, and I will kill you?”

Chad: What, too strong?

Shawn: I don’t think it’s very helpful.

Chad: Well, I need whoever it is to know that they’re not getting away with this.

Shawn: You should have let the police be the one to reach out to abigail’s kidnappers.

Chad: What does it matter? They’re not gonna tell me where abby is anyway.

Shawn: We’ve been trained to handle situations like this. We could have worked out a strategy.

Chad: Strategy, okay. Tell me what your strategy is to bringing my wife home.

Shawn: I went back to the airstrip, and I interviewed all personnel that were working yesterday, and also I tried get a look at the security footage.

Chad: And?

Shawn: And it’s gone. Somebody was covering their tracks.

Chad: Why am I not surprised?

Shawn: I left a message for my uncle steve. Brady hired him to try to track down kristen, hoping that maybe she’ll have some information on philip’s disappearance.

Chad: Okay, what else?

Shawn: I’m still waiting to hear back from him.

Chad: So then what do we do now besides wait?

Shawn: Well, can you think of anyone else who might know where to find kristen?

Chad: Actually, maybe I can.

[Knocking on door]

Gwen: Oh, my god. Coming, coming. Get in there, get in there, get in there. Oh. Coming, I’m coming.

[Tense music]

Maggie: Gwen, is everything all right?

Gwen: Maggie. Yes, everything’s fine.

Maggie: I thought I heard some pounding.

Gwen: Pounding? No, no, I was just trying to call the housekeeping, and the bloody line just doesn’t work. So if you are here to see xander, you’ve actually just–you’ve missed him. But I can take a message for you.

Maggie: Oh no. Actually, I just wanted to see how he was doing after…

Gwen: After sarah turned up and kicked him to the curb again.

Maggie: Well, yes, it must have been very painful for him.

Gwen: Actually, I’m very happy to report that he is doing very well.

Maggie: Really?

Gwen: Really. Turns out that him running into sarah could have been the best thing that could have happened to him.

Maggie: Why would you say that?

Gwen: Because he has finally put sarah in his rear view mirror, and he has decided to move on. In fact, he’s just proposed to me.

[Soft music]

Xander: I’m on my knees, unemployed, apparently unengaged, I’m not really in a cake kind of place–

Sarah: Can you just open the damn box?

Xander: Well, this is really weird.

Sarah: Well, will you? Oh, my god. The most romantic thing I’ve ever read.

Kristen: You barely touched anything I’ve given you since you’ve been here. What, are you on a hunger strike?

Abigail: No, I just don’t really care to be poisoned again, thank you very much.

Kristen: Abigail, I’m not gonna drug you.

Abigail: Why would I trust anything that you say?

Kristen: Well, because the alternative is to starve.

Abigail: No, the alternative is for you to let me go.

Kristen: Can I just make a point? See, if you would have minded your own business, you would be home with my brother and your two beautiful children right now.

Abigail: You are blaming me for getting abducted, okay.

Kristen: All right, see, I see you looking at the phone. Oh, my god, abigail, you can’t help yourself.

Abigail: What are you doing?

Kristen: Well, you can’t be too safe, hm?

Abigail: Look, what was I supposed to do? Sarah’s my cousin, okay? And reporting’s not just my job, it’s in my blood, sort of like kidnapping seems to be in yours.

Kristen: I was adopted, and you know that.

Abigail: Okay, so you were raised to be a kidnapper.

Kristen: Wow. I’m not a monster. I don’t wanna hurt anyone. Look, I’ve made you comfortable here.

Abigail: I would be slightly more comfortable if I were at home with my husband and my kids.

Kristen: I understand. But your father will tell you that I took very good care of him in nashville.

Abigail: Yeah. Apart from the fact that you kept him locked in a warehouse and let his family think he was dead for years.

Kristen: He is alive today because of me.

Abigail: Look, I know you pride yourself on being a non-homicidal type of criminal–well, except for the whole thing with my brother’s girlfriend, but–

Kristen: Okay, you know that I didn’t mean to do that.

Abigail: And maybe you don’t mean to kill me either. But if I starve to death, that’s on your head.

Kristen: Oh, my god. For god’s sakes, you know what? If it’s gonna stop this pointless conversation, I’m gonna prove to you right now that I’m not poisoning any of this, not your corn flakes or your drink. Wanna see? I’ll prove it to you right now. Hm?

[Soft music]

You satisfied now?

[Tense music]

Abigail: Very satisfied. Do you struggle with occasional nerve aches

Maggie: Xander proposed to you?

Gwen: Yeah, sorry if it hurts you to hear that. I know that you were very invested in xander and your daughter’s relationship.

Maggie: I’m just surprised. I didn’t see a ring, so…

Gwen: Well, yes, well, it was quite spur-of-the-moment. Actually, he’s out shopping for a ring as we speak.

Maggie: Is that right?

Gwen: Listen, maggie, I know that xander was very dear to you. And I know that you don’t approve.

Maggie: Gwen, I didn’t say that.

Gwen: You didn’t have to. But if you are holding onto any sort of hope that xander and sarah are going to get back together one day, don’T. Because he has said he is not waiting for sarah to come back to him. In fact, sarah has made it very clear, yet again, she does not want him.

Maggie: I know, I was there.

Gwen: Then what’s the problem?

Maggie: The problem is something was off with sarah’s visit.

Gwen: Like what?

Maggie: I don’t know, call it a mother’s instinct, intuition. I don’t know. But she just didn’t seem like the sarah that I know and love.

[Tense music]

Belle: Before I forget, I brought you a little something to help you get acclimated. This one is for the commissary. Buy yourself something nice. And that one’s for the phone.

Ej: Do you always provide these services for your incarcerated clients?

Belle: My clients don’t usually end up in prison.

Ej: Oof, lucky me.

Belle: Ej–

Ej: I’m kidding. I’m very grateful for everything you’ve done and to have you on my side. But you could probably hold onto the phone card because I have no one to call anyway.

Belle: You can call me for anything really, anytime.

Ej: Thank you, belle.

Chad: Ej.

Ej: The hell are you doing here?

Chad: I need to talk to you.

Ej: Belle just told me that abigail is missing. I’m very sorry.

Chad: Yeah, I bet.

Ej: Look, I don’t know anything about what happened to her, if that’s why you are here.

Chad: Maybe you don’t, but I’m almost certain our sister does, and I know you’ve been in contact with kristen. Where is she?

Abigail: Surely you understand how much I miss my kids. I mean, I’m sure you miss rachel.

Kristen: More than you know. Have you seen her?

Abigail: I have.

Kristen: How is she?

Abigail: She’s getting big. Yeah, I saw her at the mall with brady and chloe a few weeks–

Kristen: Okay, just shut up! Just stop it!

Abigail: I thought you wanted to know what you were missing.

Kristen: I did. I did, but the idea of chloe being–she… being she—oh my.

Abigail: Something wrong?

Kristen: Um… yeah, my head is–it’s just spinning.

Abigail: Well, it’s about damn time.

Kristen: What? What did you do?

Abigail: Well, I just–i went out exploring the property, the part you let me see, anyway, and I found some old sleeping pills in a medicine cabinet, and I am very happy to see they’re not expired.

Kristen: No.

Abigail: Yep, yeah. And let me just say, I wouldn’t slip a foreign substance into just anyone’s drink, given my own personal, unfortunate circumstance. But you, you, I felt deserved a little taste of your own medicine, so to speak.

Kristen: So you put it in there and then–

Abigail: Yeah, yeah, and i wasn’t sure how much I’d be able to get you to consume, so I put enough in there to tranquilize a horse. Quite frankly I’m surprised you’re still upright.

Kristen: Oh!

Abigail: That’s more like it.

Is now a good time

for a flare-up?

Gwen: What do you mean it didn’t seem like sarah?

Maggie: Well, my daughter has flaws, we all do. But she’s a very kind and caring person. And despite everything that happened between her and xander, I know how much xander meant to her. But for her to behave like that toward him, it was just–it was out of character, to say the least.

Gwen: Well, perhaps she’s changed since she left salem.

Maggie: Yes. Yes, honestly, she hasn’t been acting like herself since the day she took off.

Xander: Gwen, you’re dressed. That’s a shame. Maggie, hello. What are you doing here?

Maggie: Hello, xander. I just–I stopped by to see how you were holding up.

Xander: Well, I’m doing well, thank you.

Maggie: I heard. Excuse me, forgive me. Congratulations are in order. Gwen told me that the two of you are engaged.

Xander: Indeed we are. Thanks, maggie.

Maggie: I will always be sorry that things didn’t work out between you and sarah, but if gwen makes you happy, then I wish you both all the best.

Xander: I appreciate it.

Gwen: That’s very kind of you, thank you.

Maggie: Well, you two have a good day.

[Soft music]

Gwen: Something tells me she did not mean that.

Sarah: No one’s coming to rescue me. If I want to get out of here, I have to do it myself.

Steve: You’re not gonna believe this, baby.

Kayla: Wow, flare guns. Where’d you find those?

Steve: I was nosing around, and I noticed something in that grill over there. Gave it a yank, and it popped right off.

Kayla: If we could just get that door open.

Steve: Wait a minute.

Kayla: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait, I’m not finished.

Steve: Oh, baby, listen. When we get back to salem, I’ll buy you a beautiful dinner. I promise. But this and these flare guns could be our ticket out of here.

Abigail: If I were a key, I’d be… right here.

[Tense music]

Ej: Let’s say I did know where kristen was. Why the hell would I tell you anything after you falsely accused me of forcing myself on your wife?

Chad: Falsely accused? I saw it with my own eyes.

Ej: I have no idea who or what you thought you saw–

Chad: You can try to explain this away all you want, but–

Belle: Stop it, stop it. None of this matters now. All right? We all care about abigail, and we all want to bring her home. Now, ej, if you can help chad find her, you will do that, won’t you? Wondering what actually goes into your multi-vitamin.

Ej: I do care about abigail as a sister-in-law and a friend, of course.

Chad: Of course.

Belle: Then you’ll help.

Ej: I’m sorry. Ever since kristen escaped town, I’ve tried to keep tabs on her, but I haven’t heard from her in months.

Belle: Are you sure?

Ej: Yes. I have no idea where she is, and that’s the god’s honest truth.

Chad: What about the dimera secret holdings? Have you checked any of those properties?

Ej: You have more information at your fingertips than I do. You hold the keys to the dimera kingdom after you railroaded me out of my job.

Chad: Stop playing the victim. Abigail’s the victim here.

Ej: Let’s not forget we both know that I don’t belong here.

Chad: You’re a criminal, ej, a sociopath; this is exactly where you belong.

Belle: All right. None of this–

Chad: Hopefully you stay locked up forever.

Belle: Chad, none of this is helpful.

Chad: Just being honest.

Ej: Oh, honest, like when you and lucas set me up, when you lied on the stand?

Belle: Listen, you should know that we’re filing an appeal, and we are gonna win because I know you know that ej is innocent.

Chad: Yeah, innocent is the last thing that he is.

Ej: You see, he couldn’t care less that I was wrongly convicted.

Chad: Justice has been served. The world is a better place with you behind bars. And if you never get out, there is nobody on the outside that is ever gonna miss you, least of all me. Belle.

[Tense music]

Xander: Was that awkward with maggie?

Gwen: A little.

Xander: I’m sorry.

Gwen: It’s okay. I understand that this is probably going to be a part of our lives now moving forward.

Xander: What do you mean?

Gwen: You were set to marry the lovely and beautiful sarah horton, the caring doctor from salem’s family that everybody loves–

Xander: Gwen.

Gwen: And instead you are settling for me, the town pariah who tried to destroy her sister’s life.

Xander: Gwen, look at me. Hey, look, I don’t care what anyone else thinks, even maggie. You’re everything I could ever want. I know we belong together.

Gwen: Are you sure about that?

Xander: Very sure. If you still don’t believe me, then please allow me to prove it.

[Soft music]

Kayla: Oh, try not to stab yourself.

Steve: I know what I’m doing.

Kayla: Uh-huh, I can’t begin to tell you how many people I have stitched up in the er for injuring themselves with utensils.

Steve: Picking locks?

Kayla: Among other things, yes.

Steve: Ooh, sorry I asked.

Kayla: Come on. Be careful, all right?

Steve: I know what I’m doing. Just don’t worry about me. Ow, oh, ow.

Kayla: That looks like it hurt, but I’m not gonna say I told you so.

Steve: You just did.

Kayla: Let me see your hand.

[Tense music]

We do it every night.

Belle: I’m sorry for what chad said to you.

Ej: I suppose I deserve some of it.

Belle: You don’t deserve to go to prison for a crime you didn’t commit. I’ll be back to discuss the appeal after you’ve had some time to settle in.

Ej: Thank you for being my lifeline.

Belle: Well, you hang in there. And I hope your cellmate is–

Ej: Is not a murderer, or somebody that hates all dimeras?

Belle: Well, neither would be very fun for you.

Ej: Although I hear that rafe hernandez could be an inmate soon. Now, that would be my worst nightmare.

Belle: Well, fingers crossed.

Ej: Thanks. I’m sure I’ll be fine.

[Cell phone rings]

Chad: Hey.

Shawn: Were you able to see ej?

Chad: Yeah, thanks for getting me in there. Belle was there, too.

Shawn: She was?

Chad: Yeah, working on his appeal.

Shawn: Right, right. Any luck?

Chad: Ej claims to know nothing about kristen.

Shawn: Do you believe him?

Chad: Hard to tell, but I think it’s a dead end. I guess we’re back to square one.

Shawn: Not necessarily. I may have a lead.

Gwen: Oh, my god. I thought you were just going window shopping.

Xander: Yeah, I decided to upgrade to actual shopping.

Gwen: Xander, how much did that cost? I hope you didn’t have to hock some precious possession or something.

Xander: I sold sarah’s engagement ring.

Gwen: Oh, xander.

Xander: No, it was silly that I’d held onto it as long as I had, just glad I got one last use for it, and very glad to finally put that part of my life behind me.

Gwen: It’s stunning.

Xander: So are you. Hold out your hand.

Gwen: Oh, my god. You’ve already done this once, you know.

Xander: Well, if it’ll make it stick, I’ll propose to you every day of our lives. Gwen rizczech, soon-to-be cook, will you marry me?

Gwen: Yes. A second time, yes. A thousand times, yes! Yes, yes, I will marry you.

Xander: I hope it fits.

Gwen: God, look at that. Xander, that is truly–that is so perfect. It’s beautiful. I love it. I love it so much. I love you. I love you so much. Thank you for making me the happiest woman in all the world.

[Tense music]

Kristen: Abigail, you have been very naughty. No.

Abigail: This is sarah’s room, isn’t it? Where is she?

Kayla: Okay, okay, okay. Stay still, all right?

Steve: Patching up patch. Just like the old days, huh, baby?

Kayla: How does it feel?

Steve: Well, kinda like a rare piece of beef.

Kayla: You are a rare piece of beef.

Steve: Am I now?

Kayla: Yes.

Steve: Okay, that’s good. But I think I’m gonna need a kiss to make it really feel better.

Kayla: Okay.

Steve: No, not there. Right here.

[Tense music]

Ej: Definitely not the ritz. Hello, mate. Sorry to disturb your rest. It looks like we’ll be sharing a cell, so I guess we’ll be spending quite a bit of time together.
