[Monitor beeping]

[Soft dramatic music]

Lani: Please, god, bring my husband back. I know he’s fighting as hard as he can, but he needs your help. So please don’t give up on him. Our children need him and I need him. Please.

[Monitor beeping]

Abe: Hey, sweethearT.

Lani: Hey.

Abe: Any change?

[Monitor beeping]

Lani: Eli is my entire world. What am I gonna do if I lose him?

Rafe: Thank you for coming in, ms. Howard.

Beth: Uh, you said you need me to sign my statement?

Rafe: Yes. Before you do, I just wanna go over a few things.

Beth: Is there a problem?

Rafe: No. I’m reviewing everything. The grants are two of my best detectives. They’re also personal friends of mine, so this is close to me and I want to make sure I get it right, for eli.

Beth: I’m so sorry about what happened to him.

Rafe: YeaH. So it says here in your statement that you came in to meet with detective grant and during that meeting, he left.

Beth: That’s right.

Rafe: But you have no idea why he left or where he was going? Is that accurate?

Paulina: [Scoffs] Jules and carver grant, it’s time to go to sleep. Uh-uh, don’t look at me like that, girlfriend, I just fed you. Oh!

[Knock at door] Oh, come in, it’s open. Uh! It is not a good time.

Tr: I stopped by the hospital earlier to visit lani. She said that you were watching the kids.

Paulina: And?

Tr: I thought you could use a little helP.

Johnny: What’s up, doc? You know, just because our exes own that bakery doesn’t mean we can’t partake. I mean, these devil food… cupcakes are to die foR. You should get some before they run ouT.

Tripp: I’ll pass.

Johnny: If you’re worried about running into allie, she’s not in there. Neither is chaneL. They’re probably off somewhere, making passionate love.

Chanel: Thanks for letting me stay over.

Allie: You do not have to thank me, dupree. I love having your here.

Chanel: Are you sure you’re not sick of me?

Allie: Are you sure you’re not fishing for compliments?

Chanel: We’re working together all day and now we’re sleeping together all night. That is a legit question.

Allie: I’m not sick of you. Are you sick of me?

Chanel: Hmm. Let me see if I can answer that.

[Door opens]

Nicole: Oh. Good morninG.

Allie: It is a good morning.

Chanel: Really good.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Beth: All detective grant said was that he had something to do and he’d be back soon.

Rafe: Mm-hmM. And the reason you met with him was to provide background information on tr coates with whom you have a relationship.

Beth: Had. In the past. It’s over now.

Rafe: Okay. Got you. It also says during that time, while you were together, he never was under the influence of drugs or was physically abusivE. Is that correct?

Beth: Yes.

Rafe: Okay. All right, well, just sign on the x there at the bottom, please.

Beth: How is detective grant?

Rafe: He’s still in a coma.

Beth: That’s awful. I feel so bad for his wife.

Rafe: Yeah, me too. In fact, i’m on my way to the hospital to see her right noW.

Abe: Eli is young. He’s strong. He has so many reasons to fight his way back.

Lani: Not everyone is so optimistic, dad.

Abe: What do you mean?

Lani: I just said goodbye to valerie. She had had to fly back to dc for work.

Abe: That must’ve been very difficult for her. But she’s a doctor.

Lani: Exactly. And she left. She wouldn’t have done that if she thought eli was gonna wake up soon. And seeing her leave, it made all this so much more real for me. We have to face it, dad. This can go on for a really long time.

Abe: Sweetheart, you can’t lose hope.

LanI: I’m trying. But it’s like no matter what choice I make, someone is being neglected.

Abe: What do you mean?

LanI: Obviously, the kids, they need their mother and I miss them so much, but everything inside of me says that I should be here by his side and that if I just hold his hand and tell him how much I love him that he will come back to me.

Abe: If that’s what your heart is telling you, then this is right where you need to be.

Lani: And what about child care? Valerie was at the house with jules and carver and now paulina is there.

Abe: Okay, so you’re covereD.

Lani: For now. But I can’t expect her to watch two babies full-time, dad. I need a nanny, but I feel like if I get one, I am admitting to myself that eli is never coming back.

Abe: Sweetheart, sweetheart, sweetheart. You’re admitting nothing. You’re just simply looking out after your needs until we get through this. Sweetheart, you don’t have to hire anyone. I–I would be happy, I would be happy to pitch in and help you whenever you need me. And so would julie. We’re all here for you.

Lani: Thank you, dad. I feel really blessed to have so much support. But taking care of twins, dad, is a lot for one person.

Abe: And you said that paulina is there with them? Well, maybe she can use some help.

Paula: On what planet do you think that you can help? You don’t know the first thing about babies.

Tr: But the woman at the store sure did.

Paulina: What store?

Tr: Where I bought the deluxe toddler package. Toys, stuffed animals, pacifierS. You name it. There’s gotta be something in here you can usE. Like maybe right now?

[Babies fussing]

Paulina: Okay, fine.

Tripp: Now, if you’re trying to get to me, johnny, you’re not.

Johnny: Really? I’m surprised.

Tripp: Why? I already know allie and chanel slept together because you just couldn’t wait to tell me, on valentine’s day, no less, and right after I’d just proposed to your sister.

Johnny: Look, tripp, I just– I thought you had a right to know that allie’s been having sexual relations with my wife behind your back.

Tripp: It happened one time.

Johnny: Ooh, man. As usual, you’re the last to know.

Tripp: Know what?

Tripp: It’s not one time. It’s, like, all the time. Allie and chanel are a couple now.

Allie: What we meant to say is good morning to you too, nicole.

Nicole: [Chuckles] Well, thank you, allie. Chanel, it’s good to see you.

Chanel: SamE.

Nicole: So who wants some coffee?

Chanel: Oh, thank you, but I’m actually on my way out. I’m gonna go see my sister at the hospital.

Nicole: Oh, please give lani my love.

Chanel: I will. Later, horton.

Allie: Bye.

Chanel: Bye.

Nicole: Would you like some coffee?

Allie: [Chuckles] I’d love somE. But I think first we should talk about the elephant in the room.

[Clears throat] Um, obviously, chanel and I are a couple now.

Nicole: I can see that.

Allie: Are you not happy about it?

Nicole: Well, it’s just– I’m wondering–

Allie: Wondering what?

Nicole: Allie, could this possibly just be a rebound thing?

Allie: It is definitely not a rebound thing.

Nicole: Okay. You know I’m not judging you. But tripp, he did just call off the engagement.

Allie: And now I’m with chanel. I know it seems fast, but it’s really not.

Nicole: Okay.

Allie: Because I was in denial about my feelings for so lonG.

Nicole: Your feelings for chanel?

Allie: Yeah. I mean, I know i was attracted to her, but I also know that I’m attracted to meN. And I didn’t know what that meant. And then I talked to will and he helped me figure out that it means that I am bi…sexual.

Nicole: Oh, honey. I know what bi means.

Allie: Sorry. I’m just learning a ton still myself, so–

Nicole: And this feels right to you?

Allie: Yeah. And I understand now that what I had with tripp was real and so is what I have with chanel. I care about her and she cares about me and we want to be together. As a couple.

Nicole: Well, then I fully support you. And I know that you have a lot to process, so if you need to talk about anything, I am herE.

Allie: Thank you. That means so much.

Nicole: So you and chanel? Are you out in the open?

Allie: Um, not exactly.

Nicole: Okay. So you’re keeping it a secret?

Allie: No, no. But I’m just a little nervous about going public because tripp doesn’t know yet.

Tripp: It is amazing someone who spends so much time gossiping and spreading false rumors has time to make a movie.

Johnny: No, it’s not a rumor. It’s true. Yeah, I saw allie and chanel here in the square. They were all over each other. And when I said they made a cute couple, they didn’t deny it.

Tripp: I have to get to worK.

Johnny: If you don’t believe me, you can ask linda in the bakery. I got out of her that challie spent last night together at nicole’s place. That’s the same bed that you and allie used to share, right? Well, I guess I don’t need to waste any time waiting for you to thank me for cluing you iN. Because like you said, you don’t care, right?

[Sighs and exhales deeply]

[Monitor beeping]

Lani: Hi.

[Delicate music]

Rafe: Oh, man.

Lani: [Exhales deeply]

Rafe: I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry that this happened. And that I couldn’t be there for you.

Lani: It’s okay, rafe. You were in jail for something you didn’t dO.

Rafe: YeaH. Well, I’m out now. And I’m gonna do everything in my power to get to the bottom of this.

Tr: Listen to that.

Paulina: What?

Tr: The peaceful quiet of sleeping kids.

Paulina: [Chuckles] These two are perfect angels.

Tr: Mm.

Tr: Like you said, I don’t know anything about babies, but I wanna learn. After all, carver and jules are my grandkids, too. I wanna be around for them, get to know them. But even more than that, I wanna prove to you that you can trust mE.

[Knock at door] You stay. I’ll get that.

Nicole: So tripp doesn’t know about you and chanel?

Allie: Well, we’re not exactly blasting it all over social media. But I know he’s gonna find out eventually. You think I should tell him?

Nicole: What do you think?

Allie: I think I hate the idea of hurting him agaiN.

Nicole: It’s gonna be hard, but if i were tripp, I would wanna hear it from you.

Chanel: I, um, here to see lani. Eli’s in a coma.

Tripp: I’m aware. I work here.

Chanel: Right. Uh–well–uh– I should get going. I really need to go be there for my sister.

Tripp: Surprised you can tear yourself away from your new girlfriend.

Beth: So you’re johnny dimera.

Johnny: The one and only. And you are?

Beth: Beth howard, aka the new celeste perrault. I’m sorry to drop by unannounced, but I just had to tell you in person I think this script is just incredible. I mean, so original, so fresh, with a nod to kubrick and hitchcock?

Johnny: [Chuckles] Two of my biggest influences. Wow, beth, you really know your stuff.

Beth: I’ve been doing this a while. But I have never been this excited about a project before. If you have time, I’d love to get your take on the character.

Johnny: My take is that celeste parrault is a kick-ass character that my idiot soon-to-be-ex-wife gave up. Her loss.

Beth: My gain. [Chuckles]

Johnny: Hmm. You do have a good looK. And I like how bold you are, seeking me out, asking for my input.

Beth: I wanna give you my best.

Johnny: And I hope you get the chance.

Beth: Sorry?

Johnny: Well, you don’t have the role locked up yet.

Beth: What? Tr told me himself that I did.

Johnny: Wonder why he would do that when he knows that I have final say on casting.

Abe: Well, lani told me that you’d be watching the kids and I thought that you might need some help. And I also brought some supplies from home.

Paulina: Well, that was very thoughtful of you. Thank you.

Abe: Jules loves these little dolls.

Paulina: Uh, tr, he brought over some supplies as well.

Tr: Great minds. Look, mr. Mayor, I know how you feel about me, but I visited lani earlier at the hospital and she said that she wanted to spend as much time as possible with eli so i thought I would come by here to help and spend some time with my grandkidS.

Abe: May I speak to you, please? In private.

Tr: I have some emails that need my attention.

Abe: You know, you may think this is none of my business, but having that man here, it’s a damn big mistake.

Rafe: I’ve been reading statements, reviewing evidence, and conducting interviews. I’ve had some questions about what happened in the park that day.

Lani: We know what happened. Shawn and I were there.

Rafe: Yeah, but I’m not sure it’s as simple as it seems. I think there might be more to this story.

Chanel: My girlfriend? What are you talking about?

Tripp: Cut the crap, chanel. Johnny told me you and allie are together now.

Chanel: He did what?

Tripp: Yeah, don’t bother denying it, okay? He said he saw you two getting it on in the square and he knows you spent the night at nicole’S.

Chanel: GiovannI has a big mouth.

Tripp: Of course. Of course, blame the messenger.

Chanel: Okay, look, for what it’s worth, this is not how we wanted you to find out.

Tripp: You think I care? Don’t flatter yourself.

Chanel: Well, allie and i care about you a lot.

Tripp: Please. I remember you, when you came running over here after I called off the engagement. Saying, “what allie and i did was a one-time thing. She wants you, tripp, not me. Can’t you just get find it in your heart to forgive her?” What a crock.

Chanel: I had no idea we would end up together.

Tripp: Right. Right, you’ve only been dangling yourself in front of allie from day one. Making sure she can never get you out of her head. I mean, you just couldn’t let us be happy, could you? I think you only went after her brother just to get under her skin.

Chanel: I did not! I was in love with johnny and he broke my heart!

Tripp: Well, if that’s true, that sucks for you. But I don’t think it is. Because you sure got over him quick.

Johnny: I take it tr didn’t mention that little detail when he offered you the part?

Beth: No, he did not.

Johnny: Weird. Because he told chanel and that’s why she came running to me, begging me to recast her. Because she knew that without my approval, she wasn’t getting out of her contracT.

Beth: And what did you tell her?

Johnny: I said I’d cut her loose if she dropped the lawsuit that she had against me. Before she could get back to me, tr went ahead and signed you.

Beth: Well, maybe you guys just got your wires crosseD.

Johnny: [Scoffing chuckle] No, I don’t think so. But tr is a veteran producer. He knew damn well that he didn’t have the authority to give you that role without my approval. So it makes me wondeR. Why would he do that? Could you shed any light on that?

Paulina: You’re right, abe. It is none of your business.

Abe: You know, I know your history with that man. And why the hell would you let him be around you and the twins?

Tr: Excuse me. I know you two are talking about me, so let’s just get it out there.

Abe: Like i told you, when you showed up at the hospital after eli had been shot, I don’t want you around paulina, my daughter, or my grandchildren.

Paulina: Abe, pleasE.

Tr: No, no, no, it’s okay. I can tell you a thousand times that i’m not the man that I used to be. But you’ll never believe that until I show you and that’s all I’m trying to do. And I want to assure you as I have assured paulina, she has nothing to fear from me.

Paulina: Abe, I’m fine. Really, really. You can go. And thank you for the supplies.

Abe: I’ll call you later. Just to make sure all is well.

[Soft dramatic music]

Tr: Mayor carver does not like me.

Paulina: He’s just being protective.

Tr: Oh, is that what you think?

Paulina: Well, what else could it be?

Tr: Maybe he’s jealous. Let’s go over everything. First question, why did elI go to that park?

Rafe: I don’t know. I need to keep digging on that. Obviously, we know he was there, right? So theory number one, eli’s going through the park, he sees that frank guy, sees him shooting up, right? So he goes to arrest him. Struggle ensues, they end up fighting for the gun, and elI gets shot.

Lani: If that’s true, why wouldn’t frank just run?

Rafe: Okay, yeah. So that brings me to theory number two, right? ElI’s going through the park, sees the frank guy, he’s dealing, so he goes to arrest him. Again, they start fighting, gun goes off, guy thinks that he’s killed a cop, he panics, shoots up, ods.

Lani: In other words, he killed himself.

Rafe: Right.

Lani: Why not use the gun?

Rafe: Well, maybe it was an accidental overdose.

Lani: He just wanted to calm his nerves and ended up doing too much?

Rafe: I don’t knoW. See, every time I come up with a new scenario, I just have more questions than I have answerS. And we have no witnesses.

LanI: Security footage?

Rafe: No. Not in that section of the park. I mean, that’s why the dealers and junkies go there.

Lani: Eli is the only one who knows what happened that day. I pray every minute of every day that he will wake up and tell us what happeneD.

Rafe: Yeah. Listen, in the meantime, I’m gonna try and find out more about the dealer, okay? You hang in there, all right?

LanI: Hmm. I’ll do my best.

Rafe: You betteR. And, listen, you need anything, anything at all, I’m here, okay?

Lani: Thank you, rafe.

Rafe: Okay. We’ll talk soon. All right, kid?

Lani: Yeah.

[Downbeat music]

Tripp: You and allie could’ve told me the truth at any point. From the moment I met you to the moment I asked her to marry mE.

Chanel: I’m sorry.

Tripp: No, you’re not. You’re probably psyched. I mean, “stupid, naive tripp. He actually bought it when we said we’re just friends? Wow, if he’ll believe that, he’ll believe anything.”

Chanel: We did not think that!

Tripp: How could you not? I was stupid enough to believe you when you said it was just two innocent kisses. And I was stupid enough to believe allie when she said she’d left your place after comforting you the night of the reception. And when i came to you to check on you after your breakup, you must’ve been laughing at me inside.

Chanel: No, that’s not true! Look, I understand you’re upset after finding out in the worst possible way, okay? Johnny never should’ve opened his big, fat mouth!

Tripp: At least he told me the truth. Which is more than you and allie have ever done.

Johnny: So why would tr go out on a limb for you?

Beth: We have history. He knows me, knows my work, and he thought I’d be right for the role.

Johnny: Oh, come on, beth. I know how these things go in hollywood. Woman of a certain age, work isn’t as easy to come by as it used to be. You wanted to play celeste, tr wanted something in return–

Beth: Are you implying that–

Johnny: If he gave you this role in exchange for sexual favors, that could blow up in my face. And that is not gonna happen because this, this is my big shot, and no one’s gonna get in the way of that.

Beth: I wouldn’T. I would never. You have to believe me.

Johnny: Why? Because you say so? Look, I’m sorry, but your word is not enough for me to stake my entire career on. I’m sorrY. We’re gonna have to start looking for another actress.

Beth: I didn’t sleep with tr. I swear. All I did was agree to keep quiet about his past.

[Shrill tones]

Johnny: What past?

Paulina: Abe is not jealous.

[Scoffs] There’s nothing to be jealous of. First of all, there’s nothing going on between you and me. And less than nothing going on between me and abe.

Tr: He couldn’t forgive you for lying to him?

Paulina: That’s the sad parT. He did forgive me. He doesn’t know if he can ever trust me again. So there’s no hope for the future.

Tr: I’m sorry to hear that. As i have said, I know I have a lot of work to do to win your trust again. And I intend to do it. Prove myself through my actions, a little more each day. Because I want to be a part of your life, paulina. I want another chance to show you how good we can be together. However long it takes, no matter I have to do, I’m not giving up. I’m never giving up on you. A sweet-talker, ray. Lots of pretty words. Just the rest of it I’m not so sure about.

Tr: I don’t blame you. But I hope over time you’ll see that I’m sincere… and give me another chance.

Johnny: What happened in tr’s past? What does he want you to keep quiet about?

Beth: Just some things I know about hiM.

Johnny: Like what?

Beth: It’s not important. I shouldn’t have even said anything.

Johnny: Now, didn’t anyone ever tell you that secrets have a way of coming out?

Beth: Not this one. This is dead and burieD.

Johnny: Who else knows about it besides you and tr?

Beth: No onE. And that’s how I’m gonna keep it. Look, you can’t say anything to tr about this. Please. I can’t lose this role.

Johnny: I think I get the picture now.

Beth: So you’re not firing me?

Johnny: No, nO. I’ll be in touch. I look forward to working with you.

[Eerie tense music]

Lani: Any changes?

Tripp: No, but don’t be discouraged by that. It means he’s stable. Something positive to hold on to.

[Monitor beeping]

Lani: [Sighs] And how are you doing, lani? When’s the last time you slept or got something to eat?

Lani: Honestly, I don’t know. I don’t even remembeR.

Tripp: It’s important to take care of ourselves, too. Maybe on my break, how about I go down and get you a sandwich? Maybe some coffee?

Lani: [Chuckles] That’d be great. Thank you, tripp. Paulina said you were a great doctoR. She was righT.

[Phone rings]

Allie: Hey, dupree.

Chanel: Hey. [Sniffles]

Allie: What’s wrong?

Chanel: I’m at the hospital.

Allie: Did something happen to eli?

Chanel: No, I– I haven’t been to his room yet.

Allie: Okay, then what is it?

Chanel: I ran into tripp. He knows we’re a couplE.

Allie: You told him?

Chanel: Johnny beat me to it.

Allie: Are you serious?

Chanel: Yes. And tripp is not taking it welL.

Allie: Well, yeah, no, of course not. Damn johnny for telling him!

Chanel: I just–i– it’s like johnny just– he can’t but make it worse and worse for us. But okay, I need to pull myself together. And I need to be there for my sister.

Allie: Okay, call me after you see her.

Chanel: I will.

Allie: [Sighs] And I know I have to see.

Nicole: I am so sorry, abe. I mean, seeing this tr guy with your grandkids must’ve been terribly uncomfortable.

Abe: I’m really worried about paulina. I don’t like her spending time with this guy.

Nicole: And this guy who says he’s changed now, right?

Abe: His ex-girlfriend backs him up. She says that he never used drugs and he never laid a hand on her when they were together.

Nicole: Do you believe that?

Abe: I don’t know. And he’s saying and doing all the right things. I–I just don’t trust him.

Nicole: You remember how abusive my father was, right?

Abe: Hmm.

Nicole: And he told everyone that he had changed, but he didn’T. And it is rare that guys like that do.

Abe: Yeah, well, that’s what’s got me concerned. Unfortunately, i don’t have the right to say anything since I’m not in paulina’s life anymore. You know what? I had– oh, I had better get going. It’s so good to see you again.

Nicole: AW. You too, abe. You take care of yourself, okay?

Abe: Yeah, I will.

[Knock at door]

Paulina: [Inhales deeply] Door’s open, come in.

Rafe: Oh, hey, paulina. Sorry to bother yoU. You got a minute?

Paulina: Oh, no. Of course, of course. But keep it down please, okay? Because the twins, they’re asleep.

Rafe: Oh.

Paulina: This is, um–

Tr: Tr coates. Paulina’s ex.

Rafe: Oh. Pleasure to meet you. Rafe hernandez, salem pd.

Tr: Pleasure, officer.

Rafe: Actually, it’s commissioneR. Yep, I was just reinstated.

Paulina: Oh! That’s wonderful!

Tr: [Chuckles] Excuse me.

[Baby babbling]

Paulina: So what can i do for you?

Rafe: Well, lanI said that abe was here so I was hoping to talk to him about eli’s shooting.

Paulina: Oh, you just missed him.

Rafe: Oh.

Paulina: And can I tell you how glad i am that you are back on the job and on this case? Oh, I know you are as relieved as I am that lowlife junkie that shot my son-in-law, he’s dead.

Rafe: Thing is, he wasn’t a junkie.

Paulina: What?

Rafe: Yeah, i just got off the phone with a reliable source who says he didn’t use drugs, he only sold theM. So now, I’m wondering how the hell he died of a massive overdose.

Chanel: I’ll come back.

Lani: No, stay.

Tripp: I was just leaving.

Chanel: I’m so sorry.

[Monitor beeping]

Demon johnny: As you always knew, stefano, everyone’s got a dirty, little secret. And I can’t wait to find out what mr. Coates’ iS… so i can use it against him. Just like I used allie’s secret against her. Huh. Poor thing.

Allie: I know what you did! Did you hear what I said? Turn around and face me, you son of a bitch!
