[Knocking at door]
Chanel: Hey, horton.
Allie: Sorry, I didn’t mean to not turn up at the bakery today. I didn’t mean to leave you in the lurch.
Chanel: No, I’m not here to give you grief about that. I’m here to see if you and tripp found a way to work things out.
Allie: That would be a no.
Shawn: Tripp. Tripp.
Tripp: Oh, hey, shawn. What’s up? What can I do for you?
Shawn: I was hoping you could tell me that you’ve heard from your mother.
Tripp: Uh, we spoke a few days ago. Why, what’s going on?
Shawn: Ava vitali escaped police custody this morning.
Belle: So you’re not the ceo of dimera anymore?
Chad: That title now belongs to gabi hernandez.
Belle: How–how is that even possible?
Chad: Tony and I were out of town.
Belle: Oh, right. You rescued abigail. I heard. How is she?
Chad: She’s fine. We’re very lucky.
Belle: Oh, thank god.
Chad: But gabi took advantage of the situation. Called a shareholders’ meeting and managed to vote me out and her in.
Belle: Well, what about jake? If gabi got the ceo role, what did he get?
Chad: A knife in his back.
Jake: So we called a shareholders’ meeting, right? To install me as ceo of dimera. Thanks, man. And damn it, if johnny and gabi didn’t pull a fast one and now johnny’s on the board of dimera, gabi’s in charge of the company, and I–[Whistles] On my ass.
Ben: Dude, I am so sorry, man.
Jake: Thank you. Anyway, he said you might have a bead on why johnny would try to pull something like this off.
Ben: Maybe. But what I don’t get is why gabi would do that.
Jake: Hell if I know, man. I’m trying to figure that out. What I do know is… that son of a bitch got it in gabi’s head that I was gonna screw her over, talked her into screwing me over first.
[Knocking on door]
Susan: Knock, knock.
Johnny: Grandma, what are you doing here?
Susan: [Clears throat] I’m here to see if you really are my grandson.
Johnny: Well… if I’m not your grandson, then–
[Laughs] Who else would I be?
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Johnny: [Chuckles] I know it can be a little confusing.
Susan: Hmm. And what is just confusing, johnny?
Johnny: Well, our family tree. Especially where I’m concerned. I mean, I’m a twin. Sami is our mom, but allie’s father is lucas and my father is elvis jr. So jackpot, I am definitely your grandson.
Susan: Okay, you know what? I do not need a lesson in genealogy. Mm-mm. Because you know what? I got one of those kits online and I traced my ancestors back a hundred years ago.
Susan: Uh-huh. And my great-great- great-grandfather, he got arrested for horse thieving. And he got off with just a warning. But his sister– you won’t believe it– she had to pay a $10 fine for bareback riding.
Johnny: [Exhales] Wow. I mean, I know the dimera family has more sinners than saints, but I am surprised to hear that the banks side of my lineage has its share of folks who could raise some hell. Tell me more.
Susan: Oh, yeah. Okay. Well, my, um– oh, oh, here. This one’s good. My great-grandfather, he used to refurbish those one-armed bandits to put in the basement for local bars. Yeah.
Johnny: Illegal gambling?
Johnny: Did he ever get caught?
Susan: No. No, he did not.
[Both laugh] No, but his wife– his wife was not happy about it at all. I know what you’re doing. I d–[Blows air] Yeah, I do. I do. You know what? You are trying to distract me and I am not gonna get distracted from my mission. Mm-mm. All right. I know that johnny dimera is my elvis’ son. But what I’m here to ask and find out is are you really johnny dimera?
Ben: So you think johnny stole maggie’s phone to text you and then forged your signature to sign the petition to steal gabi’s dimera shares?
Jake: Well, dude, I sure as hell didn’t do it. The question is how in god’s name did that bastard get gabi to believe that she overheard me telling maggie that I would turf her in order to get what I wanted?
Ben: And you were never with maggie alone?
Jake: Never. And get this, dude. Gabi claims that this alleged meeting with maggie at the mansion happened at the exact time that I was right here with you.
Ben: Okay, so then why don’t I call gabi and just tell her that you were here with me?
Jake: Dude, she’s not gonna believe you.
Ben: You know what I’m wondering?
Ben: Is if you’re gonna believe me when I tell you how I think johnny did this.
Jake: I’m listening.
Belle: I would have thought that gabi and jake would be in cahoots on a power play like this.
Chad: Apparently, jake made the same assumption. He wouldn’t be the first guy that thought he could trust gabi hernandez.
Belle: And johnny was in on this with gabi?
Chad: Yeah. She went behind jake’s back, enlisted johnny’s help and hung her boyfriend out to dry.
Tripp: My mom escaped? Wait, does this have anything to do with rafe’s trial?
Shawn: Why would you say that?
Tripp: Well, I know how, you know, close they are and how loyal she is, so she might have tried to do something a little unconventional to try and help him.
Shawn: No. No, this isn’t about rafe. Your mom was being held for questioning in the disappearance of abigail dimera. And then someone posing as your mom’s lawyer just walks her out of the station. I’m still trying to get down to the bottom of it to find out what happened. But the officers that were asleep on the job are definitely gonna answer some serious questions.
Tripp: Okay, but what I don’t understand is my mom didn’t even know abigail. I don’t think I’ve ever heard her even mention her name, so why would she have anything to do with her disappearance?
Shawn: That’s my question. And I’m hoping your mom has the answer. So if you see her or you hear from her, will you give me a call?
Tripp: Yeah, I will.
Shawn: All right, thank you.
Chanel: So the engagement is really off?
Allie: Mm-hmm. It was bad enough at the park when tripp told me that he would never trust me again and asked for the engagement ring back.
[Sighs] But then later, I ran into him at the pub with my grandma kate and grandpa roman.
Chanel: Well, what happened?
Allie: I told tripp exactly how I felt. That… that I hated myself for hurting him and that I loved him and that I would never stop loving him.
Chanel: And what did he say?
Tripp: He pretty much shut me down and just walked away.
Chanel: Oh. Oh, my god, horton. I am so sorry. Oh.
Tripp: Hey, mom. I’m worried about you, so just please give me a call back as soon as you get this, okay?
Ciara: Hey, tripp.
Ciara: Is everything okay?
Tripp: Yeah. Yeah, yeah. Everything’s fine. How are you and the baby doing?
Ciara: Oh, we are great. I actually just stopped by to pick up a refill for my prenatal vitamins. But I won’t keep you from your work. Give allie all my love, okay?
Tripp: You’ll have to do it yourself. We broke up.
Allie: Oh, god, sorry. I must be such a mess. Don’t worry, I’ve seen you look way worse.
Allie: Thanks, I guess. I really screwed up.
Chanel: No, horton. This is on me. Okay? It’s all my fault.
Allie: Don’t say that. I was in the committed relationship. I chose to sleep with you and I chose to lie about it. There is no one else to blame but me. Did you know that when tripp would sleep over, which was almost every night, he would wake up early so that he could turn the alarm off so it didn’t wake up henry and me? And then he would go and he’d make my favorite breakfast.
Chanel: Waffles with honey and peanut butter?
Allie: Yeah. [Laughs] And this morning when the alarm went off… it reminded me, just like it’s gonna remind me every single day, that I blew it with the most amazing guy I’ve ever known.
Belle: So where did this gabi and johnny alliance come from? I didn’t know they even knew each other.
Chad: Not discount gabi’s ability to manipulate, but it seems my little nephew isn’t quite as naive as he was pretending to be.
Belle: Why do you say that?
Chad: When ej went to prison, johnny swore up and down to me that we were on the same side. Said that what his father did to abigail was absolutely unforgivable.
Belle: Making a pass at her, you mean?
Chad: Forced himself on her, I mean.
Belle: Oh, well, that’s an accusation that ej denies.
Chad: I saw my brother kiss my wife, belle. Abigail experienced it, so either abigail and i are lying or ej is lying. There is no other explanation.
Johnny: Ben and ciara told you that I was possessed by the devil?
Susan: They most certainly did.
Johnny: See? Now there is another example of confusion. Now, the movie that I’m working on is called “possessed: The marlena evans story.” And when it comes to getting this passion project made, you could definitely say that I am a man possessed. But you and I–hey. You and I both know that the prince of darkness was sent packing. I was in the room where it happened.
Susan: Yes, you were. Yes, you were. And it’s only a hop, skip, and a jump for the old beelzebub to find his way out of dr. Marlena and directly into you, johnny. Avoiding triggers, but can’t keep migraine attacks away?
Johnny: There were a lot of other people in that room. My mom, my sister, aunt belle, uncle eric, grandpa john was there, brady.
Johnny: Look, I get that the devil was after ben and ciara’s baby, so it makes sense that they’re a little nervous, but why would they think that it’s me? I mean, I barely know ciara and I just met ben.
Susan: Right. Right. You just met ben when you brought that cross over from julie williams as a housewarming gift.
Johnny: That’s right. So?
Susan: So buttons. That cross was turning itself over onto itself again and again outside their front door.
Ben: Remember that cross we had hanging outside?
Jake: Yeah, sure I do. The one that kept flipping over no matter how many times you turned it right side up.
Ben: That one. Johnny’s the one who brought it over here.
Jake: I thought you said it was from julie.
Ben: It was from julie. But when she was about to deliver it to us, she had this emergency happen that johnny just so happened to have been around for. Now, he volunteers himself to deliver the cross.
Jake: So you’re telling me you think johnny dimera is possessed by the devil?
Ben: Look, I know it sounds crazy and I’m not trying to be the one to put that type of stuff out there. I know this is exactly the type of paranoia that could land my ass back in bayview.
Jake: No, the devil was after your kid. You have every right to be paranoid. So if what you’re saying is true, then that would explain how that son of a bitch got gabi that she overheard this meeting that I had with maggie. A meeting which never happened.
Holy crap. Johnny told me exactly how he did it.
Belle: Okay, is it possible that this kiss that you witnessed–
Chad: Stop saying it like I’m making it up, belle!
> Belle: Okay, I’m sorry. But I have to ask. I mean, did this motivate you to maybe not tell the whole truth when you were testifying against your brother?
Chad: I swear to god… that it happened just as I said it did. Okay? I found the money trail that linked ej to sami’s kidnapper on my computer at dimera. And then I went to the police and I reported it.
Belle: That is a very direct and very careful answer to my question, which makes me wonder is there something that you’re not telling me?
Ciara: Wait, so right after allie accepted your proposal, you found out that she cheated on you? With who? I mean, you don’t have to tell me if you don’t want to, obviously.
Tripp: It’s fine. You’re bound to find out sooner or later, so… it was with chanel dupree.
Ciara: Chanel? Her business partner from the bakery? Oh, my god. I’m–I don’t get it. Just last week, allie and I were talking about how happy you guys were and how head-over-heels in love with you she was. Are you sure about this, tripp?
Tripp: Yeah, I’m sure. Allie admitted it. She had no choice actually, after her brother spilled her dirty little secret.
Ciara: Wait, johnny was the one who told you? Huh.
Chanel: You wanted to leave that night. The only reason you didn’t was because I begged you to stay.
Allie: Chanel, johnny had just broken up with you in the cruelest way possible. There was no chance in hell I was going to leave you alone.
Chanel: You were there for me. You always are. That meant so much to me and it still does. I wanna be there for you now. That night, you held me and… made the pain go away. I wanna do the same for you.
It’s the most wonderful
time of the year,
Tripp: And I had pretty much just put the ring on allie’s finger when johnny and chanel showed up. And instead of congratulating us, johnny asked allie if she had told me that she slept with chanel.
Ciara: Oh, my god. Tripp, that’s horrible. For you and for allie. I can’t believe her own brother would do that to her.
Tripp: Probably just ’cause the little twerp seems to get off on making people miserable. I mean, I am grateful that he told me, ’cause allie sure as hell wasn’t going to. I’m sorry, I know how close you are. Maybe I should let her tell you this.
Ciara: No. No, tripp. I care about you too. And I am so, so sorry.
Tripp: Yeah, well, maybe I’m just one of those guys that women use until something better comes along.
Ciara: What? No. No, that is not true.
Tripp: Really? Because I lost you to ben. And now I’ve lost allie to chanel, so… I’m sorry. That was a rotten thing to say. I’m just… so tired of coming in second place with the women that I care about.
Nicole: Oh. Allie, you’re home.
Allie: Yeah, I took a sick day.
Chanel: And I should get going. I’m having one of the ovens serviced. Have to meet the repair man. You know, you can call me.
Nicole: Bye, honey.
Nicole: Are you okay?
Allie: Yeah, I’d rather talk about you. What happened it court today?
Nicole: Um. Well, the defense rested. Closing arguments wrapped up. And now rafe’s fate is in the hands of the jury.
Belle: Chad, if there’s something you held back from your testimony that the judge should’ve heard–
Chad: Okay, I– I appreciate how dedicated you are to ej’s case, but aren’t you still dimera’s general counsel?
Belle: Of course I am.
Chad: Okay, so then why don’t you focus on what we pay you for? If you’re not gonna help me oust gabi and reclaim my ceo position, then I’ll find somebody who will.
Ben: What do you mean johnny told you how he did it?
Jake: Okay, I don’t know how you pulled it off, but I know you were behind this.
Johnny: ‘Cause I stole a phone, forged a text, blah, blah, blah.
Jake: No, that was just the start of it.
Johnny: Oh, really? What else did I do? Morph into you, meet with maggie so gabi could overhear?
Jake: You know, now that i think about it… johnny almost bragged about it. About morphing into me.
Ben: Then what happened?
Jake: Things got tense and we must have mixed it up, ’cause I ended up flat on my ass.
Ben: But you don’t remember?
Jake: Things are fuzzy. You now, I kept wondering how some kid got the best of me.
Ben: Dude, maybe you weren’t fighting a kid. Maybe you just got sucker punched by the devil.
Jake: Dude. That makes no sense. Yet it explains everything.
Ben: [Exhales] Question is… how do we prove that?
Susan: Inverted cross is the mark of the devil.
Johnny: Or it’s the mark of a bad handyman. Grandma, look at me. I am still the same little boy that sat on your front porch swing in memphis drinking mint juleps–mine virgin, yours not so innocent.
Johnny: And I’d read you those trashy hollywood gossip magazines when you couldn’t find your glasses.
Susan: I know, you sure did.
[Laughs] And you were just as sweet as spun sugar. Oh, sweetheart, you know what? Maybe my devil-detector is on the fritz.
Johnny: No, no, grandma. Your gift is very powerful. So don’t you think that if I were possessed by the devil, you’d know it? If you’re washing with the bargain brand,
Ben: Ciara and I decided to call susan banks. She’s over at the dimera mansion right now talking to johnny.
Jake: You trust a “looney tunes” like susan with this?
Ben: Hey, “looney tunes” susan is the reason why I reunited with ciara when everybody else thought she was dead, my friend.
Jake: I know. I know.
Ben: “Looney tunes” susan was one of the first people in this town to realize that the devil was in marlena. So if her grandson is possessed, susan’s gonna know.
Susan: I’m not sure what to think.
You must’ve jumped out of dr. Marlena evans and into my sweet johnny during the exorcism. And you can’t fool me. You can’T. Not anymore.
Demon johnny: Oh. I guess you’re not as dumb as you look.
Susan: Oh, it’s you! Beelzebub. I knew it! I knew it!
Demon johnny: Congratulations, susie Q. You figured it out. So now what are you gonna do about it?
Johnny: Are you okay? You look a little pale.
Susan: Well, I would know if you were the devil, wouldn’t I? Huh? I would feel the evil. It would chill me to my bones, go to the depths of my soul. But… oh, but that’s not how I feel.
You’re not gonna get away with this! You’re not gonna get away with this because you know what? You can slam doors in my face, but I am gonna go straight downstairs and I am gonna tell elvis everything.
Demon johnny: You know what?
[Door creaks open]
Susan: You’re gonna let me go?
Demon johnny: And what are you gonna tell him?
Susan: I’m gonna tell him that I’m leaving salem.
Demon johnny: When?
Demon johnny: Excellent. Why?
Susan: Because roger needs me.
Demon johnny: He sure does.
[Sighs] Why don’t I help you pack your bags?
Susan: Okey dokey. You’re such a sweet boy.
Johnny: A woman with your powers? You would definitely know if I were lucifer himself.
Susan: [Laughs] You’re such a sweet boy. Oh, you’re right. You are right. I would know. Mm-hmm. There is no devil here.
Johnny: Exactly. So you can go ahead and tell ben and ciara that satan is gone and there’s nothing to worry about.
Susan: Okay. That’s exactly what I’m gonna do.
Allie: Wow, it’s already gone to the jury. Rafe’s trial is moving really fast.
Nicole: Yeah, because all the prosecution had were those three felons who lied though their teeth and said that rafe set them up. And…luckily the defense had some very compelling witnesses.
Allie: Did rafe’s lawyer mention anything about ava being the one to set him up?
Nicole: She couldn’T. She didn’t have any proof.
Allie: Maybe if I’d gone through her stuff…
Nicole: No. Honey, listen. I told you I would never ask you to go after your boyfriend’s mother like that.
Nicole: Except what?
Allie: Tripp’s not my boyfriend anymore.
Ciara: Oh, tripp. You are a wonderful man. And I love allie so much, but you do not deserve to have been lied to like that.
Tripp: Thank you for saying that.
Ciara: I mean it. I really do. And if you need anything, anything at all, I’m right here.
Tripp: Just talking to you helped.
Ciara: Good. Well, I should probably get going.
Ciara: I had no idea that fathers-to-be were so overprotective. Oh, thank you.
Tripp: Thank you. All right, see you.
[Light, ominous music]
Susan: Hey, are you still gonna divorce that sweet girl you married in italy?
Johnny: It’s for the best, grandma. Chanel has moved on. So have I.
Susan: Wow, that’s really quick.
Johnny: I’m holding out for true love. Like the kind you have with roger. And I’m sure that he is missing you big time. You should get home to him. Stop worrying about all the crazy people in this town.
Susan: Well, I mean, you’re getting divorced and your dad is in prison and I just get worried about the ones that I love. And I love you so much, johnny.
Johnny: What is it?
Susan: The devil is still here in salem. Oh, in fact, right now, he is under this roof.
Nicole: Allie, I am so sorry.
Allie: It’s my own fault.
Allie: Nicole, what is wrong with me? I feel like I finally was getting my life together. You know, I have henry. I have a great job. I had a wonderful guy who wanted to marry me. And here I am just trashing it.
Nicole: Come here.
Tripp: I’ve got nothing to say to you.
Chanel: Well, I’ve got something to say to you. Allie loves you, tripp. What she and I did, it was one time and it’s over. So could you please get that through your head? Because if you don’t and you walk away from her, you will be making the biggest mistake of your life. Allie doesn’t want me, tripp. She wants you. So please, could you please find it in your heart to forgive her?
Ben: I really thought susan would be back by now. Hope she’s okay.
Jake: Johnny’s her grandson. You– you really think he’d hurt her?
Ben: Let’s hope not.
Jake: All right. I’m gonna get going.
Ben: All right.
Jake: Let me know what happens with susan– if she ever comes back.
Ben: Will do.
Ciara: Oh. Hey, jake.
Ciara: Hi, baby.
Ben: Hi, babe.
Ciara: Hmm. So let me get this straight. I have two automotive wizards here and I still don’t have a baby swing?
Ben: Oh. Go easy, I was telling jake about our little johnny theory.
Ciara: Oh. And do you think we’re crazy?
Jake: Oh, hell no. In fact, I just had a little run in with satan myself.
Ciara: Really? What happened?
Jake: [Laughs] Well, long story short, johnny helped gabi double-cross me and then gabi dumped me.
Ciara: Oh, man. I’m sorry.
Jake: Thank you. I’ll be all right.
Jake: And now, ben, I leave you to assemble the swing.
Ben: Thank you.
Jake: Mm-hmm. I’ll check in later.
Ciara: Yeah, I’ll see you, jake. Hmm. So it seems like the devil has a thing for breaking up couples. First abe and paulina’s wedding. Johnny broke up with chanel. Now jake and gabi. And he just blew up tripp and allie’s engagement.
Johnny: I thought we settled this devil nonsense.
Belle: Oh, uh, I hope I’m not interrupting.
Johnny: Oh, not at all, aunt belle.
Belle: Susan, I was just telling chad that I’m doing everything in my power to help ej overturn the conviction.
Susan: Oh. Oh. Well, I certainly appreciate that, belle. I mean, you know, my elvis, he doesn’t need to do penance for the sins of others.
Johnny: I totally agree, grandma.
Belle: Yeah. Well, okay, I’m gonna get going.
Johnny: Oh, don’t forget your coat.
Belle: Oh. [Chuckles]
Johnny: I have to take this call, sorry.
Susan: What–hold on. What about the devil?
Johnny: We’ll talk about him later.
Belle: Okay, susan. I will definitely let you know if I hear any news about ej, okay?
Susan: Okay. Thank you.
It’s her! It’s her! Dear sweet jesus, belle brady is the devil. Oh!
Is now a good time
for a flare-up?
Nicole: Honey, listen. You didn’t trash your life. You made a mistake. And coming from someone who’s made a lot of mistakes in my life, especially when it comes to love… I did learn one thing. If you love someone and they love you back, even if you’ve done something wrong, there’s always a chance you can make it right.
Allie: You didn’t see how angry tripp was. How hurt. I don’t think he’s ever going to give me that chance.
Tripp: Allie made her choice the night she slept with you.
Chanel: No, that’s on me, tripp. Look, I was the one who came on to her.
Tripp: You didn’t make her lie about it. That was all allie.
Chanel: Please don’t blame her.
Tripp: Stop protecting her, chanel. I mean, I am such a damn idiot. All this time, okay? I’ve never been jealous of your friendship or possessive. And from the first time that i saw you two together, I could see how much you meant to each other. What good friends you were. And I respected that. Okay? That’s why when johnny stomped on your heart, I came to you offered my support, and you lied to my face. So no, I don’t wanna hear another word from you. And you can tell your girlfriend that I never wanna see her again.
Ben: I just can’t believe that johnny could be so cruel to his own sister.
Ciara: Yeah. I guess that’s all the more proof that we’re not dealing with johnny.
[Frantic knocking on door]
Susan: [Gasps] Oh! Oh! Oh! Oh!
[Panting] Oh. Mm. “Saint michael the archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. And may god rebuke him, we humbly pray. And do thou, o prince of the heavenly host of the power of god, thrust into hell satan and all evil spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.” Oh!
Ben: Hey. Is it true? What the hell happened?
Ciara: Is the devil back in salem?
Ben: Is johnny possessed by the devil?
Susan: [Breathes heavily] The devil– the devil is not in johnny. He’s not in my grandson. The devil is now in belle brady!
Shawn: Oh, hey, you.
Belle: Hi. How are you?
Shawn: Good. Hey, belle. What’s on the back of your coat?
Demon johnny: Well, nonno, looks like I fooled that old fool susan banks again. And now that bitch belle’s trying to convince everybody she doesn’t have two horns under those golden locks, she won’t have time to spring little elvis from the cooler. And I can turn up the heat on my plans.
Chad: Your plans for what?
Belle: What? What is it?
Shawn: It looks like some ash or some soot. Just, like, a little few specks of black. It came right off. You been to a fire?
Belle: [Laughs] Well, I guess you could say that. I just came from the dimera mansion. And it looks like chad just got royally burned.
Chad: Your plan? Telling granddad about your little coup?
Johnny: I think he’d be proud–of at least one of us.
Chad: Gabi’s using you, you know.
Johnny: There are worse things than being used by a beautiful woman.
Chad: You think this is a game, johnny? You’re playing with the big boys now. This isn’t over. I will take back what’s mine and then you can go to hell.
[Dramatic eerie music]
Demon johnny: Oh, believe me, uncle chad, the fun is just beginning.
