Brady: Hey.

Chloe: Hey.

Brady: Here to celebrate?

Chloe: Celebrate what?

Brady: Don’t be modest. Slapping leo with that prenup. That was brilliant.

Chloe: I thought so too.

Brady: So how did he take it? Has he left town already?

Chloe: Nope.

Brady: What happened? I know that money-grubbing little creep didn’t sign the thing.

Chloe: That’s exactly what that money-grubbing little creep did.

Leo: How can I be upset? I would do anything for you, craig. Don’t you know that by now?

Craig: Yes, of course I do. I just felt like I put you on the spot insisting you sign that prenup.

Leo: You didn’t insist. You asked, very politely. And I hope you know that the reason I hesitated wasn’t about the money. I felt ambushed. Yet another attempt by your daughter and the haters to put me on a spit. If I hadn’t signed it, you could’ve ruined our wedding day, maybe even our whole marriage, because chloe and everyone else would’ve continued to think that I’m a gold digger. So I caved. I don’t like caving. I’m a very proud man.

Craig: And a selfless one. Just when I think I could’ve love you more. Thanks, babe. I promise you won’t regret it.

Jack: You drove all the way to o’hare to pick me up. You don’t have to carry my luggage.

Xander: You said you’d be my best man, jack. I owe you.

Jennifer: Xander! Gram’s garden looks absolutely stunning, and jack tells me it’s because of you.

Xander: Oh, I said I’d look after it.

Jennifer: I am just so glad to be home. Although I know that we missed so much while we were away.

Xander: Including some very sad news.

Jack: But we’re here to celebrate the good news.

Jennifer: Yes, and the fact that abigail’s home safe.

Jack: And gwen’s matron of honor. Let’s hope that this means that the two of them are finally patching things up.

Gwen: Abigail? What are you doing here?

Abigail: I heard ava vitali had been arrested, and I wanted to talk to her.

Gwen: Why? What could you and ava possibly have to talk about?

Ava: The person who attacked you was your sister, gwen.

Abigail: A lot.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Abigail: I was hoping that ava might finally give me the name of the person who knocked me out at the air strip and helped get me kidnapped. Told her she might be able to use the information to leverage a plea deal.

Gwen: I see. And did she tell you what you wanted to know?

Abigail: Sadly, no. So what are you doing here at the police station on your wedding day?

Jack: So where are my two daughters?

Xander: Actually, they’re taking care of some wedding business, but they should be back here soon.

Jennifer: Wait, you do know you are not supposed to see your bride on wedding day.

Jack: Right?

Xander: Yeah. Sarah insisted on that, and we all know what happened to sarah, don’t we?

Jennifer: I talked to aunt maggie. It’s really terrible.

Xander: I just feel like if I’d been there that night with her, I could’ve protected her. And, well, anyway, I’m not very fond of that superstition.

Jack: It’s understandable.

Xander: And anyway, gwen and I woke up this morning and decided today was the day. We feel like we’ve already had enough bad luck and that finding each other is the beginning of a better life.

Jack: I really hope you do.

Xander: So shall I fill you all in on the details?

Jennifer: Yes! Please!

Jack: Yes! Of course, please! That would be helpful, yes.

Xander: Well, we’re having the ceremony tonight, in the square. And you’re getting two weddings for the price of one.

Jack: Two?

Jennifer: What? That’s exactly what we did. Who’s the other bride and groom?

Xander: Gwen is the only bride. A friend of hers is marrying his boyfriend. There’s going to be three grooms.

Craig: Pretty quiet on the way over here. It’s not like you.

Leo: Just thinking.

Craig: About the prenup.

Leo: You were right. Signing it was the only way to get chloe and sonny and everyone else to believe what you and I already know. I’m not marrying you for your money. I’m marrying you because you’re the love of my life.

Brady: Okay, this states if leo and craig break up, leo gets nothing. You sure leo read this?

Chloe: He did. Every word.

Brady: And he signed it?

Chloe: You know why? Because my father convinced him to.

Brady: Okay, well, at least you have the satisfaction of knowing leo can’t screw your dad over. I mean, justin writes up a good prenup. This thing has no loopholes in it.

Chloe: Yeah, well, brady, is it possible that we were wrong? Is it possible that leo stark wasn’t after my father for his money? What if he’s actually marrying him for love?

Craig: Hey. You and I are getting married in a few hours. I think maybe we should try and get ready.

Leo: True. My toilette does take a while.

Craig: Yes, but there’s only one bathroom. We could shower together, maybe save some time.

Leo: I don’t think that would be much of a time save. Besides, there is something I want to talk to you about before the wedding.

Craig: Okay? You look serious. What is it?

Leo: I have a confession to make. It’s my 4:05, the-show-must-go-on,

Gwen: I came here because I was looking for you.

Abigail: Oh, well, when I came in, you seemed surprised to see me. And what’s with the hat? It’s april.

Gwen: Oh, right, yeah. Just trying to avoid frizzy hair on my wedding day, you know? I came here because I couldn’t find you, and so I phoned “the spectator” office, and they said you were here, covering a story.

Abigail: I see.

Gwen: And the reason I looked surprised is because I didn’t know that ava had been arrested.

Abigail: She has, yeah. She’s been charged with planting the evidence against rafe.

Gwen: And these charges– they don’t have anything to do with what happened to you?

Abigail: No, no, and like I said, you know, she just– she won’t give me the name of the person who helped her do it.

Gwen: I bet it was that pilot. I think perhaps she’s afraid of him.

Abigail: Maybe. Yeah.

Gwen: Right, well, if you’re finished here, shall we go? Because xander’s gone to pick up jack, dad, at the airport. And, well, I know he would love to see you. I think he’d be rather pleased to know that you’re standing up with me. Are you ready?

Abigail: Yes. My phone is vibrating. Hang on. Let’s see. Oh, it’s the office. They’re wanting an update. Do you know what? Can I just–I’ll just catch you at the house, and I’m not gonna be long, I promise.

Gwen: Yeah, of course.

Abigail: Okay. Bye.

Gwen: Bye.

Abigail: Hi, yeah, I’m just down here at the squad room. I just got done interviewing ava vitali.

[Uneasy music]

Ava: So, did you convince the da to give me a deal? Because that is the only way I’m giving you the dirt on your sister.

Craig: Okay, whatever it is, whatever you did, just tell me, all right? Tell me. You’re scaring me. What is it?

Leo: It’s about the guy that gwen is gonna marry.

Craig: What about him?

Leo: His name is xander cook, and I sort of kind of–

Craig: Sort of kind of what?

Leo: Tried to get him to go to bed with me.

Jac: Craig wesley is getting married?

Jennifer: He left nancy…

Both: For a man?

Xander: Yeah. A guy named leo stark.

Jennifer: What? The same leo stark that caused so many problems for will and sonny?

Xander: Yeah, that’s the guy.

Jack: And now craig is getting married to him?

Xander: Yeah, I guess craig had been in the closet his whole life, and now he’s making up for lost time.

Jennifer: No, that’s just poor judgment.

Xander: I wouldn’t know. I’ve never even laid eyes on craig.

Jack: And now you’re going to have a double wedding with the man?

Xander: Because leo and gwen–it turns out, they’re old friends.

Jack: Really?

Jennifer: I mean, I was never crazy about craig, the way he stole my brother’s job, but I mean, nancy worshiped him. She must be devastated by all this.

Nancy: I don’t know why I let you talk me into this, mommy. Look, it is one thing to like a guy’s picture, but it’s another thing to meet him face to face. Okay, I’ll try to believe that. Okay, I will believe that. And, yes, I will repeat after you. I am a great catch. I am charming. I am adorable. And the man I’m about to meet is damn lucky that he swiped right on me. Okay, I’m going in right now to face the… music.

[Lilting jazz music]

Clyde: Nancy?

[Soft music]

Clyde: Hi, I’m clyde. Clyde weston.

Nancy: I’m nancy, nancy miller.

Clyde: Are you sure?

Nancy: I’m sorry. I’m just a little nervous.

Clyde: Well, some of us hide it better than others. Perhaps we should sit down before our waitress runs us over with a big bowl of chowder?

Nancy: Oh, we can’t have that.

Clyde: Right.

Nancy: Oh, thank you.

Clyde: You’re welcome. Well… your picture on the website.

Nancy: What about it?

Clyde: You’re much prettier in person.

Nancy: Thank you. Your picture of you was very handsome, and your picture didn’t lie.

Clyde: Well, thank you. Guess we’re off to a pretty good start here, aren’t we?

Nancy: Oh, I hope so. This is the first time I’ve been on a date in a really long time.

Clyde: Yeah, your profile said that you’re recently back on the market. So am I.

Nancy: I’m divorced. And what’s your excuse?

Clyde: I just got out of prison.

Brady: Look, chloe, I don’t mean to sound cynical, especially for your sake or your dad’s, but the idea that leo is actually in love with craig– I don’t buy it. I don’t think a guy like leo changes his spots.

Chloe: Well, I’m cynical about leo as well, but if he is the gold digger that we think he is, then why did he sign that prenup? Unless he, what, plans on staying married to my father long enough to spend all of his money?

Brady: That’s a possibility. I suppose.

Chloe: I don’t know. Bottom line is, we thought of everything, and nothing worked. It always seems like leo’s one step ahead. I don’t know. I guess leo stark’s going to be my step-daddy, and there’s nothing I can do about it.

Brady: Actually…

Chloe: Actually what?

Brady: Maybe there is.

Craig: So you’re saying you cheated on me?

Leo: Oh, god, no. No, I would never do that. Didn’t I make that clear the night you caught me in bed with chad?

Craig: Yeah, yeah, but you just said that there’s–

Leo: This was years ago, long before I met you. I will admit, I was a bit of a player back then.

Craig: Mm-hmm. What happened?

Leo: Nothing. Xander’s straight.

Craig: But you wanted something to happen?

Leo: Craig. Trust me, when you meet this tall, dark, and handsome scotsman, you will understand why I wanted to get under his kilt.

Jennifer: Are the two of you going to be wearing kilts tonight?

Xander: Oh, I decided to spare jack that. No, I got tuxes for us.

Jack: Oh, my bony kneecaps thank you.

Xander: Actually, speaking of, we should get going. We need to try the monkey suits on.

Jack: Right!

Gwen: My goodness, you’re here! Hi. You’re here. I’m so happy you’re gonna be here for the wedding. Oh.

Jack: Oh, I wouldn’t have missed it for the world.

Gwen: Oh. You know, actually, I was wondering. Would you maybe walk down the aisle and give me away?

Jack: Give you away? I feel like I just got you. Yes, I would be honored to give you away, yes.

Gwen: Oh.

Xander: And when it’s all over, you’ll be my father-in-law. Like the sound of that.

Jack: So do I.

Gwen: Everything is so perfect.

Abigail: Guess who showed up when I was out in the squad room. Gwen.

Ava: How’d that go?

Abigail: Well, I didn’t give you up, if that’s what you’re asking. I told her you wouldn’t tell me who helped you kidnap me.

Ava: Well, that was a good move, because she was probably on her way in here to talk me into keeping my mouth shut.

Abigail: Well, she didn’t expect to see me, I know that.

Ava: So what kept you from telling gwen that I ratted her out?

Abigail: I’m not tipping her off until you give me the whole story.

Ava: That depends on what the da said.

Abigail: She’s interested. But she needs more information.

Ava: Okay. Tell her to come talk to me.

Abigail: I have a better idea. You tell me the story, and I go back to her.

Ava: I already told you gwen knocked you out. What more do you need?

Abigail: You made it very clear that gwen has done worse than that, a lot worse. I want the details.

Ava: Are you certain that the da’s willing to make a deal?

Abigail: Absolutely.

Ava: Great. Then you get me that deal, and then I will give you whatever you need to bury your sister.

Jack: It’s good to see the two of you looking so happy.

Gwen: Yeah, we are, aren’t we?

Xander: Definitely. But we should go get those tuxes fitted. I don’t want to be late for my own wedding.

Jack: Right, right, right.

Gwen: So, you know the next time that I see you–

Xander: I’ll be making an honest woman of you.

Gwen: Yeah, we’ll see about that.

Jennifer: Have fun!

[Soft music]

Gwen: Hey. I’m very happy that you’re gonna be at the wedding tonight.

Jennifer: Yes, I am too. I’m very happy that we have some time alone. There’s something I wanna say to you.

You never know

what opportunities

Clyde: Me doing time, being an ex-con, is that a deal breaker for you? Because if it is, I certainly understand. I see.

Nancy: No, no. You just took me aback, clyde. It’s not a deal breaker.

Clyde: Are you sure?

Nancy: You know, for more than 30 years, I thought that I was married to the perfect man. But he cheated on me. I knew that there was something wrong between us, but, well, I kept asking him, and he kept lying to me. I just met you, and you have been honest and open with me. And I respect that.

Brady: So do you remember yesterday, when we overheard leo talking to someone on the phone named jackie?

Chloe: Yeah.

Brady: Well, sonny seems to think that might be jackie cox. Now, this is a crony of leo’S. Sonny’s pretty sure that the two of them were in cahoots during that peacock scam last year. So if leo is actually trying to scam your father, this jackie cox might know about it, even be in on it.

Chloe: How do we find this jackie?

Brady: Sonny and chad are actually on their way to new york right now to try to track her down.

Chloe: Well, my dad’s wedding is in a couple hours, and this seems like a long shot.

Brady: Chloe, it may be the only shot we have.

Leo: I don’t want there to be any secrets between us. So I thought I’d better tell you you’d be sharing your wedding with a man I lusted after. You mad?

Craig: No. I appreciate you being honest with me.

Leo: Oh, craig. Nobody has ever cared for me the way you do.

Craig: It’s because you make me happy. I love you.

Leo: Maybe we do have time for a shower.

[Knocking at door]

Craig: Oh, boy.

Leo: Oh, well, if it isn’t the groom-to-be.

Xander: Hi, leo. Can we come in?

Leo: Why not?

Craig: Jack deveraux.

Jack: Hello, craig.

Leo: You two know each other?

Craig: Mm-hmm. Yes, we do. What are you doing here?

Xander: Well, jack’s gwen’s dad. He’s also my best man.

Craig: Oh. Well, I didn’t know that.

Jack: I thought as much. That’s why I suggested to xander that the four of us should have a friendly drink together before the wedding.

Xander: It’s a single malt, almost as old as I am. Jack’s treat.

Craig: So you’re xander cook. Leo and i were just talking about you.

Gwen: Look, before you say anything, I know I’m not your favorite person, and for good reason. When I came to salem, I was terribly unhappy, and I took that all out on you and your family, and especially abigail.

Jennifer: Yes, you did.

Gwen: So I wanted to say is that abigail has managed to forgive me. It means the absolute world to me. Because with her forgiveness and xander’s love, I’ve stopped becoming that person who did all those horrible things. So, really, what I’m trying to say for myself here is, I was very angry and spiteful because I just thought that nobody was ever gonna love me. But now I have jack, and I have xander. And for the first time, I feel like I have a family of my own. Sorry, so what is it that you wanted to say?

Jennifer: You know, you’ve lived in this house. You see pictures of family everywhere. So you probably figured that family means everything to me, gwen. And everything to my husband. So what I wanted to say is, jack is really proud of the person that you’ve become, and so am I.

Gwen: Oh.

Jennifer: [Laughs]

[Tender music]

It’s okay.

My asthma felt anything but normal.

Gwen: Thank you, jennifer.

Abigail: Mom.

Jennifer: Whoa!

Abigail: I didn’t know you were coming.

Jennifer: Well, I had to see you for myself. Oh, my goodness. Now I know that you’re really okay.

Abigail: Yeah, I’m fine. I’m happy you’re here.

Jennifer: And you’re going to be gwen’s matron of honor?

Abigail: Yes, I am.

Gwen: I know, I can’t believe it. I mean, I’m actually getting married here in a little while. I need to get dressed. I need to get ready.

Jennifer: Yes.

Abigail: Do you need help getting dressed?

Gwen: No, I don’t think so, but if I do, I will let you know. Thank you.

[Moody music]

Jennifer: Hey. What’s wrong?

Abigail: I just learned some very interesting intel about our bride-to-be.

Chloe: So, what did you say to chad and sonny?

Brady: Told them that leo signed the prenup and that now it’s basically all up to them.

Chloe: Well, did they have any luck finding this jackie person?

Brady: Hopefully, we’ll find out soon.

Chloe: Well, not soon enough to stop this wedding. Ugh. Ugh.

Brady: What?

Chloe: It means I have to go get ready for it. Feel like I’m going to a funeral. I should just get dressed in all black since I am ghoul girl.

Brady: Hey, you do realize that you’re not going to be doing this alone.

Chloe: What, are you ready to go public?

Brady: Yeah. Like I told you back in the good old days, I want the whole world to know that you are my girl.

[Tender music]

Xander: Oh, yes. Should we have another?

Leo: Might want to slow down there, big guy. Don’t want to disappoint the missus tonight.

Xander: I appreciate your concern, leo, but that’s not going to be a problem.

Leo: Lucky her.

Craig: So, jack, you’ve heard about me and nancy, yes?

Jack: Yeah, yeah. Yeah. How’s she holding up?

Craig: Well, she’s in a great deal of pain, and I feel terrible about that, but I just couldn’t lie to her anymore. Let alone myself. Anyway, she’s an amazing lady, and I pray that she finds the right man who she can spend this next chapter of her life with.

Clyde: Hard enough to have your husband tell you he’s leaving you, but for another man?

Nancy: The same man that he is marrying today. He wants us to be civilized, and he invited me to the wedding.

Clyde: Guy’s got some nerve.

Nancy: I might go. That’s kind of one of the reasons I got on the dating site. I just didn’t like the thought of showing up there alone.

Clyde: Nancy, are you asking me to escort you to that wedding?

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Nancy: Do you feel used?

Clyde: No. To be honest, the day I walked out of prison, the only clothes I had were the clothes that I walked in with, but I’m sure I could scare something up.

Nancy: Really?

Clyde: Yeah, but I don’t think you really want me to take you tonight.

Nancy: It is crazy, right? I’m asking you to be my plus-one at the wedding of my ex-husband and his boyfriend. Why don’t think you should go with me? Because you were in prison?

Clyde: Well, you said it didn’t matter to you, so why I would care what other people think?

Nancy: Then why did you say you shouldn’t go with me?

Clyde: Because I think you’re worried about people seeing you there alone. I think you’re afraid that people will feel sorry for you. And I’d tell you, that just ain’t gonna happen.

Nancy: How do you know?

Clyde: Nancy miller, you go to that wedding and hold your pretty little head up high, just like you’ve been doing ever since we sat down to talk, and people there will see exactly what I see.

Nancy: And what’s that?

Clyde: A beautiful, strong woman who doesn’t need a man to make herself complete.

Chloe: As much as I would love for you to go with me to this wedding–

Brady: What? What?

Chloe: Are you sure you’re ready for rachel to find out about us?

Brady: I haven’t told her yet, but do you how she feels about you?

Chloe: Yeah, she likes me because I’m your friend.

Brady: No, that’s not true. It’s not the only reason.

Chloe: Well, she might not like me if I’m your girlfriend.

Brady: Chloe, I have talked to her about kristen and me. She knows that we will always love her, but she knows that mommy and daddy will never be a couple again.

Chloe: Poor baby.

Brady: Yeah, it’s sad, but… she also doesn’t want her daddy to be lonely. She did tell me that. And when we’re together, she sees how happy that makes me. So I think that she would think that that was a good thing.

Chloe: Are you sure?

Brady: I am.

Chloe: Oh, brady.

[Soft music]

Craig: I’d like to propose a toast. To leo, the man who makes my heart sing and who I’ll soon be lucky enough to call my husband.

Leo: To the bravest man I know, my husband-to-be, who took on all the people he loves because he loves me.

Xander: To my bonny bride. She’s everything that I love in a woman. She’s beautiful, she’s bright, and she can drink you lot under the table.

Jack: To my good friend, xander, who stood up for my daughter, stood behind her, and showed me finally how to see what he saw in her: A young woman who just wants to be loved. And now she is, by both of us. To love.

Craig: Hear, hear!

Xander: To love.

Jennifer: Gwen is the one that knocked you unconscious? She is the reason that you were kidnapped?

Abigail: Yes. Yes, but she doesn’t know that I know that. So we– we got to keep our voices down.

Jennifer: How can I keep my voice down? I just told her how proud I was of her. Do you know how devastated your father is going to be by all of this?

Abigail: I’m sure he is.

Jennifer: Why did she do this to you?

Abigail: I think I know. I don’t want to talk about it until I know for sure that I’m right.

Jennifer: Why haven’t you confronted her about this?

Abigail: Ava told me there’s so much more to know about gwen. I want it all. And ava’s forcing me to broker a plea deal for her with the da. Otherwise, she won’t talk.

Jennifer: Does she have any idea that you are on to all of this?

Abigail: She tracked me down at the police station today. I think it’s because she doesn’t want me talking to ava.

Jennifer: What did you do?

Abigail: I told her that she wouldn’t tell me who her accomplice was.

Jennifer: And she believed you?

Abigail: Yeah. And that’s the way that I want it. I can’t have her going down there and telling ava not to talk.

Jennifer: So this whole miraculous change in her character has just been an act this whole time?

Abigail: I think so. And it scares me, you know, because she’s already done so much to our family. What if she’s planning something else?

Jennifer: Abigail, you can’t let her do anything else to you. Please.

Abigail: Trust me, I’m gonna protect myself. But I can’t do that unless I know the whole truth.

Gwen: The whole truth about what?

[Dramatic music]

To be a thriver with metastatic breast cancer means…

Abigail: Oh, mom and i were just talking shop. I wanted her advice on how to handle a source because I’m not sure he’s being truthful.

Gwen: Oh, right. I’m sorry if I’m interrupting.

Abigail: No, you’re not. I’m your matron of honor, and I’m at your disposal.

Gwen: Well, it was just the dress I bought, I can’t quite do the zipper myself.

Abigail: Oh, yeah, okay, well, let’s go get you into it.

Gwen: Right. Okay.

[Moody music]

Nancy: Clyde, let me ask you something. Are you turning me down about going to the wedding tonight because you’re just not interested? I mean, I’m a big girl, in more ways than one. You don’t have to let me down easy.

Clyde: Nancy, life’s too short to fool around. If I wasn’t interested in you, I wouldn’t waste your time or mine.

Nancy: I already like you.

Clyde: I like you too, nancy. Which is another reason for me to stay away from that wedding.

Nancy: I’m sorry. I don’t know what you mean.

Clyde: On our first date, I don’t want to deal with a bunch of other people. I want you all to myself.

Craig: I hate to question your taste, but xander is not all that.

Leo: Excuse me?

Craig: I’ll be standing near him at the wedding tonight, but I only have eyes for you.

[Knock at door] Oh, my god, what now?

Xander: Oh, hey, sorry, I just jumped in the shower, and I stupidly didn’t check before, but I don’t have any of those little shampoo bottles. You have any extra?

Craig: Uh, the maid, I think left a few this morning–

Leo: I’ll get them.

Craig: So, married.

Xander: You nervous?

Craig: I’m–yeah, no.

Xander: Oh, thanks so much, mate. Cheers. I’ll see you guys at the wedding.

Craig: I take that back. In a towel, he is–

Leo: All that.

Craig: Definitely.

Chloe: So we are going to this wedding together.

Brady: Yeah, we are.

Chloe: So we’re officially a thing?

Brady: Yeah. Couldn’t be happier about it.

Chloe: Okay, well, I am, too, but I really should go get ready for this thing.

Brady: Yeah, you know what? Maybe you should just stay, and maybe we could go to my room. The wedding isn’t for many hours.

Chloe: Oh, you’re right, it isn’T.

[Cell phone beeps]

Brady: God, really? It’s from sonny. He and chad have met with jackie cox. They have something on leo.
