Lani: I’m sorry. I was looking for detective grant.
Beth: Oh, sorry. You just missed him.
Lani: Did he say when he would be back?
Beth: He said he had something to take care of and that he’d be back soon to take my statement.
Lani: Did he call you down here?
Beth: Sort of. I came to talk to him about someone he’s been investigating.
Lani: And who would that be?
Beth: A man named tr coates. Do you know him?
Lani: Tr coates is my father.
Eli: Heroin. Isn’t that your drug of choice?
Tr: Is that one of the lies beth told you?
Eli: Oh, so then you never had a drug problem?
Tr: Like I told lani, I got help. I’ve been clean for years.
Eli: And I guess you don’t put your hands on women anymore either?
Tr: No, never.
Eli: Why don’t you start by showing me what’s in that bag… in your pocket?
Tr: Did you bring the works?
Frank: And as an introductory offer, they’re on the house.
Tr: I was with lani’s little sister, chanel, earlier. And she was kind enough to let me try one of the sweets from her bakery.
Eli: Doughnuts are my favorite. Do you mind if I take a look?
Will: You’re just gonna stand there and watch me eat this?
Allie: I want an honest review. A thumbs up. That’s it?
Will: No. No. Two thumbs up. Great doughnut. You really nailed great-grandma alice’s recipe. I think she’d be very proud.
Allie: Thank you. Okay. So now that I fed you, can you answer my question?
Will: You’re asking me if you’re gay?
Allie: Yeah. Yeah, you’re kind of the expert. But seriously. I mean, I need to figure out why I can’t shake these feelings about chanel and why I let them ruin my relationship with tripp. Am I–I am I gay, and I just can’t admit it?
Will: Why–I mean, I wish I could help you, allie, but those are questions you’re gonna have to answer yourself.
Chanel: Has she left yet? I left allie alone and I– johnny! G? G? Giovanni, can you hear me?
Marlena: It’s true. Ben told me, but I didn’t wanna believe him. Oh, my god.
Demon belle: Oh, why does everybody always have to bring his name into it?
Marlena: You, you stay away from my daughter.
Demon belle: Hmm…. nope, but I am glad you are here, marlena. Come on in. The fun’s just getting started.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Chanel: Giovanni, g, please, please wake up. Oh, please be okay, please. Oh, johnny. Johnny, you’re alive.
Chanel: Oh, thank god. Oh, thank god.
Johnny: Oh, thank god.
Chanel: Oh, yes. Yes. It’s me. Thank god. What the hell happened? When I left you here, you were–you were talking to your aunt belle.
Johnny: Not belle.
Demon belle: You didn’t really think your little christmas miracle would send me back to hell for good, did you?
Marlena: My son eric and all the people that love me drove you out.
Demon belle: Only they didn’T. They made a lot of noise, but I left your body of my own free will.
Demon belle: Oh, yes. You see, as much as I’ve loved our time together, I’ve grown tired of our little dance. It was time for a new partner. So I just waltzed my way into your precious isabella, made of passion and infidelity.
Marlena: Leave my daughter alone.
Demon belle: Can’t do that, doc. I’ve got big plans for her. Ben and ciara are chasing their tails, convinced that little johnny is my new host. But you and I both know I prefer the female form.
Marlena: Susan told me that. I was praying that wasn’t true.
Demon belle: Yes. I’m well aware that the insufferable susan banks tipped you off, but what are you going to do about it? You’re powerless to stop me.
Marlena: Oh, no, I’m not, and I’m not afraid of you. I want you to leave my daughter immediately.
Demon belle: [Chuckles]
Beth: So you are tr’s daughter. Your husband told me about you.
Lani: Tr is my biological father. We actually just met.
Beth: I see. And you work here.
Lani: That’s right. Detective lani price.
Beth: I’m beth.
Lani: What made you come looking for eli?
Beth: I got a call from someone named billie reed. I was passing through chicago and figured I’d head down and tell detective grant what I know.
Lani: And how exactly do you know tr?
Beth: I used to be his girlfriend.
Lani: Used to be.
Beth: We broke up about six months ago. I told your husband all about our relationship.
Lani: Would you mind telling me? I have some questions.
Tr: I’m sorry, eli. I know you’re my daughter’s husband, and I’m not trying to get on your bad side.
Eli: Show me what’s in the bag.
Tr: I’d rather not.
Eli: And why is that?
Tr: Because I got the last brownie, and I don’t trust you not to snag it from me.
Eli: So you won’t even let me take a look, huh?
Tr: I’m not in the sharing mood, and I don’t know you that well.
Eli: Why don’t you and your brownie come on down to the station so we can get to know each other a little better?
Tr: No, thanks. Excuse me. Get your hands off me.
Eli: Is that what you told beth and paulina before you beat them?
Eli: Well, did I say something funny?
Tr: What the hell?
Eli: I tried to do this the easy way, but I’m kind of glad you gave your reason to put my hands on you.
Tr: You don’t wanna do this, man.
Eli: You don’t know what I want to do. ‘Cause what I want to do will make me lose my badge.
Tr: Is that how you operate here in salem? You just stop any brother who’s walking through the park with a bag?
Eli: Don’t play that brother card with me. All right? You know I don’t care what color you are. All I know is I’m keeping you away from my family.
Tr: You can’t keep me away from your wife and my grandchildren.
Eli: Watch me. You’re under arrest.
[Gunshot] Migraine attacks?
[Dramatic electronic music]
Beth: Why does this suddenly feel official?
Lani: I don’t wanna do anything that’s gonna make you feel uncomfortable. It’s just, I haven’t known tr very long, and my mother has said some very distressing things about him.
Beth: Your husband told me he abused her.
Lani: Yeah. Tr swears he’s changed and that he is no longer using drugs. Is that your experience? I swear, anything you say about my father will not leave this room.
Shawn: Oh, sorry. I thought this room was free.
Lani: It’s okay.
Shawn: I’ll leave you to it.
[Phone beeps] Oh, no.
Lani: What is it?
Shawn: There’s shots fired at the park. Detective, would you be available to back me up?
Lani: Yeah, of course. Will you please stay here until I get back? I really wanna finish this conversation.
Beth: Sure. I’ll be here.
Lani: Thank you.
Allie: Maybe I’m gay and I’m just in denial about it. I mean, that’s how it was with you, right?
Will: Well, even when I was closeted, I knew I was attracted to guys.
Allie: But you had a baby with gabi, so–
Will: That’s right. You know, I cared a lot about gabi. I still do. But if I’m being honest, I don’t think I was ever really sexually attracted to her.
Will: That surprises you?
Allie: I mean, it’s just, gabi is, like, super-hot.
Will: Are you attracted to gabi?
Allie: No. No. At least I don’t think I am.
Will: But have you been attracted to other women?
Allie: No. No. And I’ve had a lot of close female friends, but I’ve never felt that way about them.
Will: Except one.
Allie: Except one.
Will: Okay. Then maybe we should talk about chanel.
Chanel: What the hell happened? You said it wasn’t your aunt belle.
Johnny: I need to explain something.
Marlena: Belle, fight.
Demon belle: Always fighting me, marlena. Aren’t you exhausted after all these years? Don’t you just want to give up and let go?
Demon belle: Yet I can feel your life force slipping away. In a few moments, you’ll be dead. And with any luck, I’ll see you in hell.
Tr: I warned you, but you wouldn’t listen. Now look what you did.
Frank: I got your text. You need more already? The bag I gave you had enough to kill a horse. What the–oh, god.
Tr: Look at me, frank. Look at me. Look at me.
Frank: Look, I don’t know what happened here, but I didn’t see nothing. It’s none of my business.
Tr: I just made it your business.
Frank: What is this? What are you doing?
Tr: As you can see, I’m in a little bit of a jam, and I need you to help me out.
It’s my 5:52 woke-up-like-this migraine medicine.
Allie: When chanel first kissed me, I didn’t expect it. We were good friends, nothing more.
Will: Okay. You didn’t think about being with her?
Allie: No. No. Not her or any other woman. I mean, I’d only ever dated guys.
Will: Mm-hmm. But I mean, you liked it when she kissed you?
Allie: Yeah. Yeah. I really liked it.
Will: Okay. Well, what did you do after? Did you–did you freak out?
Allie: In the moment, I think I just tried to play it off, like there was no big deal, and I mean, maybe inside I was freaking out, but I just pushed those feelings aside. Like, I didn’t know what to do with them.
Will: Yeah. In my experience, pushing feelings aside isn’t usually, like, the best strategy.
Allie: Yeah, no, because they were always there. And after that, every time I thought about the kiss, I just would make excuses for myself. You know, like she caught me off guard or she kissed me, I didn’t kiss her.
Will: Mm-hmm. Did you talk to her about it?
Allie: Yeah. Yeah. I told her that I didn’t feel that way about her. And we moved on.
Will: Mm-hmm. Except you didn’t, not really.
Allie: Yeah. We kissed again on the 4th of july. And that time, I couldn’t pretend that I didn’t like it. I mean, actually, I think I might have been the one who initiated it.
Will: That was a big step.
Allie: Yeah. But then I pulled back again and I just threw myself into this relationship with tripp.
Will: What is it like when you–when you see her now? Is it weird?
Allie: No. No, it’s the opposite of weird. When I’m around her now, it’s like there’s this charge between us, this pull that makes me wanna kiss her and touch her all the time. It’s like I almost can’t breathe.
Demon belle: Oh, you had a good run as the heart and conscience of this town. But it’s time to say good night, marlena. Salem is mine.
Demon belle: Guess again.
Chanel: No, dr. Evans.
Demon belle: What’s the matter, girl?
Chanel: I can’t move. My feet are stuck.
Demon belle: Wonder how that happened.
Chanel: Let me go.
Demon belle: Well, why would I do that? You’ve got front-row seats to the best show in town: The death of dr. Marlena evans. Plus, I want you to stick around so I can kill you next.
Demon belle: Don’t worry. I won’t drag it out. I’ve waited long enough. I can snap her little neck in an instant.
[Uneasy electronic music]
Tr: What did you do? What the hell did you do? You’re supposed to have your act together. You’re tr coates. You’re better than this. That was lani’s husband, your son-in-law, a cop. And I know–I know he pushed your buttons. I know he made you angry, but…
okay. Enough of that. I gotta clean this mess up.
Lani: Oh, god, eli. Eli. Shawn, he’s been shot in the head. Eli. Eli, baby. Hey. Hey, wake up, wake up. Talk to me. Eli.
Shawn: Lani, this guy has got eli’s service weapon in his hand. He looks like he just shot up with heroin. Talk to me about eli. What’s going on?
Lani: He has no pulse. He is not breathing. Come on, eli.
Limu emu and doug.
Lani: Come on, eli. You got this. Come on, come on.
Shawn: All right, I got an officer down. Gsw to the head and I’ve also got a civilian with a possible od. I need immediate assistance now. Now!
Lani: Eli, baby, baby. You got this. Come on. You got this. Please stay with me. Just stay with me. Stay with me.
Tr: Okay. No reason to panic. You did what you needed to do. You left the gun in frank’s hand, and he’s not talking. I’ll get dressed, and then I’ll find a place to burn those bloody clothes. And nobody will know I was there, especially not lani. Beth who?
Eli: Save it. She’s at the police station right now. She just finished telling me that everything that you’ve been telling lani and paulina is a load of crap. You’re still using. And you used beth as a punching bag last year.
Tr: She’s lying. I didn’t use her in my last movie, and she didn’t take it well. There’s always a woman that gets in the way. Guess I’m gonna have to do something about beth too. I’ll be damned if I let her or anybody else come between me and my daughter.
Marlena: Belle? Belle, can you hear me?
Chanel: What’s going on?
Marlena: It’s the devil. The devil is inside her. I don’t know how it happened. Why didn’t I stop it?
Chanel: She was trying to kill you, and she said she was gonna kill me next.
Marlena: It’s not belle. She’s not in control.
Johnny: Grandma, I’m so glad you’re okay.
Marlena: Thanks to you. How did you know?
Johnny: Once chanel left belle and I alone in the study, her–her eyes, they just–they started glowing, and then she attacked me. I thought she was gonna kill me.
Marlena: Thank god you’re all right. It must have been terrifying.
Johnny: Never mind me. What are we gonna do to save her?
Together forever and
never to part
Will: These feelings that you have for chanel– they are not going away?
Allie: No. If anything, they’re getting stronger.
Will: Okay, so have you answered your own question?
Allie: I don’t know, because I’m definitely attracted to men. Like, what I had with tripp– that was real.
Will: Okay. Are you sure that you aren’t just trying to convince yourself or–
Allie: No, no, definitely not. I cared about him a lot. And when we were together physically, I mean, it was great. There was never a moment where I was faking it or pretending to like something that I didn’T. I really–I loved being with him until I screwed it all up.
Will: Well, you didn’t mean to hurt him.
Allie: Yeah, but I did. And I hate that. But the entire time that I was in that relationship with tripp, I was also battling my feelings for chanel. And then, one night, she was just there and so hurt and being so vulnerable. And I just wanted to comfort her, but more than anything, I just wanted to be with her. And we slept together.
Will: Was that your first time with a woman?
Will: And how was it physically and emotionally?
Allie: It was great in both ways. And ever since it happened, I can’t stop thinking about it.
Will: How did it compare to being with a guy?
Allie: Well, I mean, it was different obviously. I mean, for one thing, tripp and chanel are very different people. I guess it’s kind of like– it’s kind of like ice cream. Like, you can like two different flavors at once, right?
Will: Yeah. Sure.
Allie: Oh, god. Did I just compare sleeping with men and women to eating ice cream?
Will: Yeah. I believe that you did.
Allie: Do I sound ridiculous?
Will: Honestly, you sound bisexual. What? What are you thinking?
Allie: I… it’s just, I have a gay brother who I worship and adore, and, you know, I think I’m pretty woke. And I don’t know, I start talking about this, and I just feel really ignorant.
Will: About which part?
Allie: I don’t know. Is bisexuality a real thing? You know, is that not just something people call themselves so that they don’t have to decide or they can keep their options open?
Will: No, no, it is definitely not that. Bisexuality is very much a real thing. Yeah. I mean, in fact, bisexual people are a big part of the lgbtq community.
Allie: So you’ve researched this.
Will: Yeah, I mean, I’ve read about it, and we have bisexual friends we’ve talked to. I think being bisexual means you can fall in love with a man, woman, someone who’s trans or non-binary. It means you can be attracted to or love someone regardless of their gender identity.
Allie: Wow. So you know a lot about this. Well, thank you. It’s really helpful.
Will: I’m glad.
Allie: Okay. Well, I guess I’m bi.
Will: Yeah, I mean, if that’s what feels right to you.
Allie: It’s so weird, ’cause the feelings are one thing, but then finding a label that fits is just very confusing.
Will: Well, I mean, go easy on yourself. You don’t have to decide who you are today. I mean, when I was kind of trying to figure out who I was, I talked to a lot of people.
Allie: Mom and dad?
Will: Like, eventually. It took some time definitely. But, you know, they came around to try and help.
Allie: Yeah. You know, I love those two maniacs, but the last thing I need right now is them hovering on me.
Will: I don’t blame you. Yeah. Hovering aside, you know, they’re gonna love you and obviously be there to support you no matter what.
Allie: So if you didn’t talk to them at first, who did you talk to?
Will: Grandma marlena. Yeah. Honestly, she was a godsend. She helped me be proud of, like, who I was. You know, who I am.
Johnny: Is she all right?
Marlena: Yeah. She’s fine for right now. I just–I don’t know what to expect when she wakes up.
Chanel: We should call someone.
Johnny: Like who?
Chanel: I don’t know. The cops, a priest?
Johnny: Grandma, tell me if I’m wrong, but I don’t think we have time to wait. I mean, given that she tried to kill us both and threatened chanel’s life. I mean, we can’t take the chance of her coming to.
Marlena: I think you’re right. If we’re going to help belle and keep her from hurting anybody else, going to have to neutralize her.
Chanel: You’re talking about fighting the devil alone? Because I did not sign up for this.
Johnny: Chanel, wait.
Chanel: Let me go.
Johnny: Look, look, look, I know. I know that I hurt you and you have every–you have every right to hate me, but I know that you care about my sister. And belle is allie’s aunt, too. Please, she needs you. Will you stay and help us?
[Cell phone rings]
Tr: Hello, beth. Long time no speak.
Beth: Tr. I changed my number. How the hell did you get–
Tr: Bethy. Now, you know how I like to keep track of the people I share secrets with. You didn’t think I would just let you go, did you?
Lani: I’m not letting you go, eli. Do you hear me? I am not letting you go. He–he’s–he’s not–he’s not breathing. Is he–is he–
Emt #1: Nice work, detective. Looks like you got his heart going again.
Lani: Oh, god. God, please let him be okay. Please let him be okay. How did olay top expensive creams?
Beth: I’ve got news for you. What you did to me isn’t a secret anymore.
Tr: I heard. You ratted me out to detective eli grant, right?
Beth: How did you know I talked to him?
Tr: That’s not important. What is important is for me to know if you told anybody else at the police station what you told eli.
Beth: Well, I mean–
Tr: Sounds like you didn’T. Good girl.
Beth: I just met your daughter.
Beth: Lani. She seems like a good person. I was just about to tell her what a poor excuse of a human being you are.
Tr: What’d you say to her?
Beth: Nothing. She got pulled away for some shooting in the park.
Beth: But when she or her husband returns, I’m going to make an official statement. I’m gonna tell them everything you did to me, all the abuse. And then we’ll see about filing charges.
Tr: I’m not so worried about those charges, beth. You need to listen to me. Before you say another word to the cops, you need to talk to me first.
Beth: Why would I do that?
Tr: I wanna make you an offer. I promise, you won’t be sorry.
Emt #1: Do you wanna ride in the ambulance?
Lani: Yes, yes, I’m his wife, and we cannot lose him.
Emt #1: We’ll get him to the hospital as fast as we can.
Shawn: Just hang in there, eli. I’ll be praying for you.
Allie: Can you believe I’m someone’s mother when I’m so all over the place?
Will: Hey, first of all, you are a great mom. Secondly, you have so many people who love you and support you. And if and when you decide to come out and whatever you decide you are, we’re all gonna be there for you.
Allie: Thank you. Well, I guess I have a lot of thinking to do, huh?
Will: Well, I mean, eh, give your brain a rest and listen to your– listen to your heart. Gay, straight, bi, trans, pan, you know what they say love is–
Allie: Love. Yeah, I got that part down.
Will: Well, I’m proud of you.
Allie: You are?
Will: Yeah. I mean, this is–this can be really scary and emotionally heavy stuff. And I know that, but you are amazing and strong, and I love you.
Allie: Love you too. All right, bye. Thank you. God. I wonder what’s taking chanel so long. Hope johnny’s not being a jerk to her again.
Chanel: You think this will hold her?
Johnny: As long as we make it tight enough.
Marlena: I know the devil’s inside of her, but I don’t want her hurt. That’s my little girl.
Johnny: Look, grandma. I don’t have to tell you the devil is strong. We can’t be too careful. It’s for aunt belle’s own safety.
Marlena: I know. I just–I hate seeing her like this.
Johnny: Me too. Is there anything else we can do? She’s not gonna be happy when she wakes up.
Marlena: Well, my medical bag is in the car. I could–I could sedate her until we know what’s gonna happen next.
Johnny: Good idea.
Chanel: I should go. We’re supposed to be meeting with allie.
Marlena: Okay. I’ll go out with you.
Johnny: Chanel, thank you. I owe you.
Chanel: I’ll be in the hall when you’re ready.
Marlena: Okay. And thank you.
Johnny: Just glad I was here when you needed me.
Marlena: You’ll be okay alone with her for a few minutes?
Johnny: Yeah. Yeah. I’ll keep an eye on her. Are you okay?
Marlena: Yeah, I’m shaken, but I’m okay.
Johnny: I know how hard this is for you, considering everything you’ve been through. We are going to help belle. We can drive the devil out. I know we can.
Demon johnny: Alone at last.
To be a thriver with
metastatic breast cancer
[Knock at door]
Tr: Beth, I’m glad you came. Come in.
Beth: Can’t we meet in the lobby? I’d like to be somewhere in public.
Tr: I’m afraid I can’t do that right now. I have something sensitive I wanna discuss with you.
Beth: Forget it. This was a mistake.
Tr: Now you’re gonna want to listen to my offer. Now, I get why you’re nervous. But I promise I will not hurt you.
Beth: I’ve heard that before. I have 911 keyed on my phone. All I have to do is press send.
Tr: That won’t be necessary. You’re safe with me.
Emt #2: We lost this one, commissioner brady.
Shawn: Son of a bitch od’d, huh?
Emt #2: I’ll let the me make the final call on that. But it looks like what was in that needle was enough to kill three people.
Shawn: Right. Thanks. What the hell were you doing here, eli? How did you let some low-life drug dealer get close enough to grab your gun?
Lani: Hey, hey, I love you. I love you so much. Just hang on a little longer. Okay?
Emt #1: Sorry, detective price. We need to get your husband to a trauma room.
Lani: Okay. Okay. Okay. Of course. Hey, wait. Hey, I’m gonna let you go, but just for a little bit. Okay? You better come back to me, eli. Do you hear me? Because we need you, carver, jules. We need you. Please, please, please. Okay, okay, okay.
Chanel: Hey, horton. What?
Allie: What do you mean what?
Chanel: What’s with the look?
Allie: What look? I’m not–I’m not giving you a look. What kind of look?
Chanel: I don’t know. You seem a little confused.
Allie: Dupree, I can assure you I am no more confused than I have always been. But maybe now I’m a little bit more aware of it.
Chanel: Am I supposed to know what you’re talking about?
Allie: Don’t worry about it. So are we out of the movie? Did you talk to johnny?
Marlena: Okay. I’ve given her a sedative. She should sleep for a couple hours.
Johnny: Maybe you should get some rest too. I mean, no pun intended, grandma, but you look like you’ve been through hell.
Marlena: Well, I feel like I have, too, but there’s no time. I need to try to reach john.
Johnny: Of course. I’ll stay with aunt belle while you look for him.
Marlena: And johnny–
Johnny: She’s tied up. She’s sedated. Like you said, she’s gonna be asleep for hours.
Marlena: Yeah. Listen, you call me if there is any change at all. The slightest twinge, you call me. Do you understand?
Johnny: I will. It’s all gonna work out. I know it is.
Chanel: Johnny and I– we didn’t get a chance to finish talking about the movie.
Allie: Why not?
Chanel: Well, let’s just say we got interrupted.
Allie: By what?
Chanel: Horton, you better sit down.
[Disquieting string music]
Demon johnny: Well, now that I’ve succeeded in convincing people that you’re the one who’s possessed, we need to make this look good. What do you say we practice a few moves, auntie belle? Oh, oh, she’s got the devil in her for sure!
