Update written by Joseph

Shawn gets a call from the lab. Shawn hangs up and confirms to Belle that Jan’s baby is his. Shawn tries to reach out but Belle warns him not to touch her.

Ciara goes to Sweet Bits Bakery but finds that it is closed, so she wonders why they aren’t open. Ciara spots Ben in the town square and goes to greet him. Ciara says Clyde told her that he was at work. Ben says he was but had to get parts for an engine rebuild, then asks what Ciara is doing. Ciara explains that Allie told her that the cake for the party would be ready today but the bakery isn’t even open. Ben complains that they can’t have a gender reveal party without a cake. Ciara wonders where Allie could be..

Johnny remains tied up in the DiMera Crypt, pleading for someone to come help him.

Abigail follows the footprints to the Crypt and wonders why Allie would come here as she prepares to head inside.

Devil Allie goes home where Chanel rushes up to hug her, telling her that she’s so glad to see her as she was worried that something really bad had happened to her. Allie claims that she’s fine. Chanel hugs her again and thanks God that she’s home as Devil Allie smiles with yellow eyes behind Chanel’s back.

Ben offers to take Ciara to breakfast but Ciara says no, even though Clyde insisted. Ciara worries about hurting Clyde’s feelings and says Clyde is falling over himself wanting to help and even offered to build a baby cradle. Ben agrees that he’s trying a little too hard. Ciara states that Clyde wants to be involved in the baby’s life, but admits that she doesn’t like that idea at all.

Clyde asks when EJ got out and on what grounds. EJ explains that his attorney was able to prove he had been framed this morning. Clyde jokes about being EJ’s first stop. EJ assures that he wasn’t his first and this visit is anything but flattered. Clyde feels they said everything they needed to. EJ says their terms don’t work for him now that he’s free.

Chad shows up and scares Abigail before she enters the Crypt, causing her to scream. Chad explains that he saw the door open and wanted to find out what she was up to. Abigail explains that she was just looking for Allie. Abigail reminds Chad that the doors were open yesterday and nobody has heard from Allie since last night. Abigail adds that she looked out the window and saw footprints, so she followed them to the Crypt. Chad questions what reason Allie would have for being inside the Crypt.

Johnny encourages himself to focus and find a way out of the Crypt. Johnny complains that the Devil is after Allie and Chanel.

Allie assures Chanel that she’s fine and is sorry for worrying her. Chanel notes that Nicole was worried too and asks if she’s sure she’s alright. Allie says yes, so Chanel asks what happened to her. Allie thinks back to fighting with the Devil in Johnny.

Shawn tells Belle that she knows he never meant to sleep with Jan and this baby is his worst nightmare too. Belle tells him to get out of her way as she’s going back to the office. Shawn asks if they can keep talking after work. Belle doesn’t think there is anything left to say, so she’s going back to her parents’ place tonight. Shawn thought that was just for last night and asks Belle if she’s moving out and leaving him. Shawn argues that the Devil played with their heads. Belle continues to complain about Shawn not telling her that he had sex with Jan Spears. Shawn argues that he wanted to forget being tricked in the worst way. Shawn then reminds Belle that he’s not the first person in this marriage to sleep with someone and lie about it. Belle questions him going there. Shawn explains that when he slept with Jan, he thought it was Belle, but when Belle slept with Philip, she knew exactly what she was doing.

Johnny thinks back to being married to Chanel as he struggles with the chains.

Chad tells Abigail that she doesn’t know these are Allie’s footprints. Abigail says if not, then she’s missing. Abigail wants to go look in the Crypt just in case, so Chad agrees to go with her, but Abigail then gets a text from Chanel, saying that Allie is fine.

Chanel calls Nicole to confirm Allie is home and fine. Chanel thanks her for everything and hangs up. Allie questions why Nicole was so worried when she sent her a text that she wasn’t coming home. Chanel points out that Allie texted her that she would be here. Allie claims she just wanted to be alone. Chanel says they didn’t know that and she even went by the DiMera Mansion earlier to try and figure out where she was. Chanel mentions that Abigail said Allie had come looking for Johnny. Allie confirms that she found him so Chanel asks what happened.

Ciara hopes there is nothing wrong with the cake. Ciara checks the time and says she has to get to Shawn and Belle’s because Shawn promised to help Julie with decorations for the party. Ben says he was going to say he would ask Clyde for help but that’s probably not a good idea. Ciara then reveals that she actually invited Clyde to the party because she felt uncomfortable not inviting him and didn’t want to hurt his feelings. Ben says that’s sweet of her and he knows Clyde can get pushy and try too hard. Ben thinks they should try to give Clyde the benefit of the doubt. Ciara promises she will try because Ben is the love of her life and she knows how important it would be to him if his dad actually has changed. Ciara says she’s just a little overprotective. Ben agrees to talk to Clyde to tell him that he doesn’t have to try so hard to prove himself to them and to make sure he backs off a little bit.

Clyde offers to cook breakfast for EJ. EJ argues that the last time they tried to coexist peacefully, he took a bullet. Clyde asks how they should work this out then. EJ responds that one of them needs to disappear. EJ declares that he left town last time, so now it’s Clyde’s turn. EJ reaches in to his jacket so Clyde questions if he’s going to shoot him. EJ says he’s far more civilized. EJ reveals the DiMera Jet is fueled up and waiting, so all he has to do is pack a bag and tell the pilot where to take him. Clyde questions how to leave when he gets there. EJ says he will see to it that Clyde has the funds to start a new life, as long as that life is nowhere near his. EJ asks what Clyde says but then Ben comes home and asks what he says about what.

Belle questions Shawn bringing up her past mistakes when he’s having a baby with Jan. Belle says she apologized over and over again. Shawn argues that he’s apologized too and continues to apologize for the Devil making Jan look like Belle, that Jan is pregnant, and that he didn’t tell her the minute she walked in. Shawn adds that he only brought up Philip because he forgave her for that, so he asks if Belle can forgive him now.

Allie tells Chanel that she and Johnny had a huge fight about her and telling Tripp about them and every other horrible thing he did. Chanel asks how he took it. Allie asks how she thinks and admits it got pretty ugly as most of their fights do. Chanel asks how it ended. Allie remarks that Johnny’s lucky she didn’t kill him, but he’s still at the DiMera Mansion. Chanel asks where she went after that. Allie claims that she went driving all night as she needed to think about them. Chanel asks what about them. Devil Allie then suggests maybe they shouldn’t see each other anymore.

Johnny complains that he’s never going to get out of here. Johnny then sees his dead uncle Andre. Johnny at first believes it’s Tony and tries to ask him for help before he reveals that he is actually his uncle Andre.

Allie tells Chanel that they rushed in to this and Tripp and Johnny don’t like it. Chanel argues that they don’t need anyone’s blessing. Allie says that being with Chanel has ruined her relationships with Tripp and Johnny and they were important to her. Chanel questions them being more important than she is. Allie says she’s sorry about that. Chanel brings up all the times Allie said Johnny can go to Hell. Allie doesn’t expect anyone to understand what’s between her and her brother.

Johnny argues that Andre is dead and tries to convince himself that he’s dehydrated and in shock, so he’s seeing things that aren’t there. Johnny calls this impossible since Andre is dead. Andre asks if he’s questioning the Devil’s power after all he’s been through. Andre says that the Devil sent him here and talks about making some unfortunate choices during his lifetime. Andre says Abigail ended his days on earth so there was only one possible destination for his poor corrupt soul and he became the indentured servant to the Devil himself. Andre reveals that the Devil sent him here to deal with Johnny. Johnny asks what he’s going to do with him.

Chad and Abigail return to the living room. Abigail is glad Allie is okay and hopes Johnny is too. Chad wonders what Johnny is up to and notes that he’s been weird ever since breaking up with Chanel. Abigail points out that EJ is back so maybe he can deal with it. Chad is surprised to learn that EJ got out so soon but says that’s great. Abigail talks about how she can’t believe Belle put the phony evidence on EJ’s computer and says she’s lucky she didn’t get disbarred. Chad jokes that she has the defense that the Devil made her do it. Abigail says it’s not funny and what she did to EJ was awful. Chad says “I guess” which Abigail questions. Abigail asks what Chad knows.

Clyde claims to Ben that EJ just offered him a job. Ben questions what EJ gets out of giving Clyde a job. Clyde explains that they were cellmates in Statesville so they got to know each other really well. Ben asks what the parole board thinks of an ex-con going to work for another ex-con. EJ clarifies that he’s not an ex-con as his conviction was overturned. Clyde talks about learning a lot about who you can trust in prison because having the right person back you up can keep you alive. Clyde adds that EJ knows that business on the outside can be just as cutthroat. Clyde then states that he’s going to have to say no to EJ’s offer because he made it clear that taking the job would require him moving away from Salem and he can’t do that because it would violate the terms of his parole. Clyde adds that he’s looking forward to becoming a grandpa when Ben and Ciara’s baby arrives. EJ responds that he’s very disappointed as he then walks out of the apartment. Ben asks if Clyde wants to tell him what that was all about.

Shawn asks Belle to say something. Belle responds that it’s not just about forgiving him because he and Jan are going to have a child and that child will tie him to her for the rest of his life. Belle doesn’t know if she can live with that. Ciara walks in but asks if she’s interrupting something. Belle says no as she was just leaving and then hurries out of the house. Ciara tells Shawn that she brought everything he needs to decorate Doug and Julie’s place for the party. Ciara adds that Doug and Julie are very excited about having another great grandchild. Shawn remarks that they will be twice as excited when they hear his news that she’s not the only Brady having a baby. Ciara is shocked and questions how Jan is having his baby when Belle said she walked in before they slept together. Shawn says that’s what he told her but he lied because he wanted to pretend like it never happened. Ciara tells him that she’s so sorry and asks how he’s going to fix it. Shawn doesn’t know since Belle is shutting him out. Ciara suggests staying at John and Marlena’s will give Belle time to think and they will convince her to give him a next chance. Shawn worries that John and Marlena are not the only ones that she’s turning to right now.

EJ goes to the Brady Pub and finds Belle drinking at the bar. EJ comments on it being a bit early since it’s not even noon. Belle responds that she just found out her husband is having a baby with Jan Spears, so she questions when it’s acceptable to start drowning her sorrows. EJ tells her that he’s so sorry and asks what Shawn had to say for himself. Belle informs him that he threw the fact that she slept with Philip in her face even though that was over a decade ago. EJ calls that not a very shrewd tactic. Belle says she’s just been sitting here, thinking about how much she and Shawn have hurt each other over the years. EJ relates to he and Sami doing the same thing. Belle asks if EJ got in touch with Johnny. EJ says he called the office but they said he hadn’t been in. EJ decides to not let Belle drink alone.

Chad tells Abigail that he just feels very bad about turning on EJ. Abigail talks about thinking EJ walked up to her and started kissing her and that Chad saw it happen, so it didn’t occur to them that the Devil morphed in to EJ. Chad agrees and he was furious when he took the stand. Abigail points out that Chad didn’t know that Belle put the evidence on his computer. Abigail says at least EJ is out now and can put it behind him. Abigail wonders what it was like for EJ to be an inmate. Chad is sure he ran in to some bad dudes. Abigail comments that EJ didn’t seem any worse for having been in prison.

Clyde repeats to Ben that EJ offered him a job. Ben argues that Clyde is not the corporate type so he questions what kind of job it was. Clyde questions him sounding so suspicious. Ben says he’s known him all his life and has Clyde sleeping on his couch while he promised to stick to the straight and narrow. Clyde says that’s why he turned down the job, leaving a lot of money on the table, to keep working the grill at the Brady Pub. Ben brings up Clyde cooking Ciara breakfast and tells him to dial it back a little bit. Ben adds that Clyde is not going to build a cradle for their baby. Clyde questions what he’s giving him grief for because he’s taking an interest in his own grandchild. Ben responds that they already have enough of the wrong kind of interest after their baby. Clyde asks what that means. Ben says it’s going to sound off the wall but he swears it’s true that they have proof that the Devil wants their baby. Clyde thought Ciara was joking but Ben assures it’s no joke.

Andre tells Johnny not to worry as he’s not going to kill him since the Devil has a vested interest in keeping him alive at least for now. Johnny argues that his family is probably already looking for him. Andre says that the Devil was concerned about that which is why he sent him to tie up the loose ends. Andre decides they are going to write a letter of Johnny saying farewell to Salem and everyone he loves.

Chanel argues that Allie saw Johnny and got scared of being with her. Chanel asks if lie was a lot easier when she thought she was straight. Allie clarifies that she has not changed her mind about being bisexual. Chanel asks if she just changed her mind about her. Chanel argues that Allie is lying to herself because she cares about her and that’s why they decided to see if they could make this work. Chanel says that they are way more than friends and before going to see Johnny, Allie was in to her. Allie says she’s sorry if she made her think that, but she’s decided they were a mistake. Chanel asks what Johnny said to her. Allie claims that seeing Johnny just made her realize that she rushed in to this without thinking about how it would hurt the people she cares about. Chanel complains that this sounds like the same speech Johnny gave to her for breaking up with her. Allie says maybe they are using the same words. Chanel shouts that it’s more than that and she’s not hearing her. Chanel points out the cold way she’s looking at her and it’s not that she’s like Johnny, but that she is Johnny. Chanel feels like she’s talking to the same person.

Johnny argues that no one will buy this as Andre reads him the letter that he wrote for him, saying goodbye to everyone in Salem and that he’s going back to Italy for some soul searching. Johnny calls it garbage. Andre says he still has to sign it.

Chanel questions Allie and Johnny talking about the best way to dump her. Allie claims they just talked about how close they used to be. Chanel asks what Johnny said. Allie claims that Johnny said Chanel wants both of them. Chanel questions her believing that. Allie points out that Chanel did jump from his bed to hers. Chanel points out that Allie did the same with Tripp. Allie agrees that they moved too fast. Chanel complains that Johnny got to her and is pulling the strings now. Chanel talks about being so happy and asks her not to let him do this to them. Allie claims this is all her and as she stepped back and went from planning to marry Tripp right in to a relationship with her, so she needs time alone. Chanel asks about the bakery. Allie tells her that it’s Chanel’s. Chanel argues that they were partners but Allie says she didn’t put a cent in to it. Chanel talks about how much it meant to her but Allie says she’s sure she will find someone to take her place. Chanel tells Allie not to do this and says something has been really off since she walked through the door.

Johnny refuses to sign the letter and argues that everyone will know it’s not his handwriting. Andre then takes the pen and stabs Johnny with it, using his blood to sign the letter.

Allie tells Chanel that they are over and asks her to leave so she can sleep. Chanel hopes Allie is more gentle with her son Henry than she was with her. Chanel then leaves and breaks down crying outside the door. The Devil remarks that he hopes he doesn’t have to play that scene again because he needs to focus all his energy on Ben and Ciara’s baby.

Clyde asks Ben if he’s still seeing Marlena. Ben assures that Marlena is not possessed anymore. Clyde asks if that means his troubles are over now. Ben says he hopes so but the Devil has upped his game since returning to Salem and is able to jump from person to person. Clyde asks how he knows that. Ben explains that Belle was possessed for a little while but now there is no sign of him. Clyde questions why the Devil would want his baby. Ben says they don’t know that but he does know that right now, his baby is safe and he intends to keep it that way. Clyde brings up how Ciara fought for Ben, so if the Devil does came after their kid, he’s in for a hell of a fight and his money is on Ciara.

Ciara thinks Shawn just needs to give Belle some time and points out how she was possessed and has to figure out how to live with that. Shawn can’t believe they are talking about Belle’s possession like she had the flu or something. Ciara knows Belle won’t get past it overnight. Shawn agrees that they both went through Hell. Shawn just hopes that when Belle is herself, she won’t be so furious with him. Ciara assures that no matter how angry Belle is, she won’t give Jan the satisfaction of ruining their marriage.

EJ says it may not be an appropriate time for a toast but he says Belle was strong enough to throw the Devil off and now the worst is behind them now.

Chad asks Abigail how EJ was when she saw him. Abigail says EJ was in high gear and wants to put everything behind him so he can get his life back. Abigail notes that Chad and EJ weren’t really getting along before he went to prison. Abigail asks if they can join forces to throw Gabi out. Chad admits there’s nothing Stefano would love more than his sons burying the hatchet to get rid of an interloper. Chad notices a letter on the mantle and asks where that came from. Abigail doesn’t know. Chad gets up and opens the letter, saying it’s from Johnny.

Andre informs Johnny that his message has been delivered, so no one will come looking for him now. Andre tells him that they will meet again, either here or in Hell. Andre disappears as Johnny continues to struggle with being chained up.
