Leo: You asked what the hell I wanted. The truth is, I spent my whole life wanting things– money, power, alamainian emeralds. But now I’ve come to realize there’s only one thing I want. And that’s you.

Nancy: Now, you know, bonnie, I really thought that I would’ve been the last person that craig wanted to see. Yeah. But I’m so glad I went. Uh-huh. No. You know, when I got there, he was such a hot mess. Yeah. But we sat and we talked, and we realized that after everything we’ve both been through, that we’re still friends. Yeah. No, no. Then leo showed up.

[Laughs] No one has ever accused leo of not having nerve. Yeah. And th– clyde? You mean the jerk who was going to take me out on my first date and then I never heard from him again, that clyde? I’m telling you right– oh, I’m so sorry. You.

Jack: What are you talking about?

Abigail: You know, based on his reaction, I’m assuming you didn’t tell him what you shared with me before rafe led you to the squad car. So did you want to tell him, or should I? I didn’t think so, because, you know, you never want to admit you’ve done anything until you’ve already been caught.

Jack: Abigail, what are you talking about?

Abigail: This is about the fact that grandma laura’s death was not an accident. Was it? She told me that she killed grandma laura on purpose.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Jack: Is that true?

Gwen: Course it isn’T. She must’ve misheard what I said.

Abigail: I heard you very clearly. Her exact words were, and I quote, “oh, and by the way, your precious grandmother, I killed that bitch on purpose.”

Jack: God. My god.

Gwen: Was last night not enough fun for you, abigail? Did you wake up this morning and think, ooh. How can I hurt gwen more? How can I make her pay even more?

Jennifer: You do realize that you really, really are not the victim here, right? But my mother was your victim. Or should I say one of your victims?

Jack: Why didn’t you say anything about this last night?

Abigail: Because I felt like you had already been through enough.

Gwen: Or you hadn’t thought it up yet.

Jennifer: Oh, yeah. Rafe had you in cuffs and he was leading you away, and I saw you, you whispered something in abigail’s ear, and I doubt you were complimenting her dress.

Gwen: It’s a problem I have. I don’t like someone else having the last word.

Jack: Why did you choose to tell me now?

Jennifer: Because I told her she had to, jack. You have to know. We are now talking about murder.

Jack: Are we? Did you kill laura?

Nancy: You know what? I take it back. When I stepped on your foot, I wish I’d broken every one of your metatarsals. Bonnie, look, I’ll call you back. I got to get out of here.

Clyde: Come on, nancy, wait.

Nancy: Wait? I have waited for you, clyde. I waited all day yesterday for you to call like you said you would.

Clyde: I know. I’m sorry about that, but there was a reason.

Nancy: Yeah. And I know what it is. You don’t want to date me, but you’re too much of a coward to tell me.

Clyde: No, my son, ben, he went missing.

Nancy: I–is he okay? Did they find him?

Clyde: Yeah, eventually. He was chained up in the dimera crypt.

Nancy: [Laughs] Okay. He was chained up in the dimera crypt? Oh, wh–wait. Did stefano dimera come back from the dead again?


Clyde: No, it was the devil.

Nancy: [Laughs] Oh. And how is he doing?

Clyde: Listen, I know it sounds crazy, but it’s not funny. We found ben, but we have no idea where his wife is, and she’s about to have a baby. What we do know is the devil has kidnapped her.

Nancy: Y–you know, clyde, if you don’t want to date me, you don’t have to recycle old tales from the crypt.

Clyde: I swear on the life my unborn grandson that I am telling the truth. But if you don’t believe me, take a look at this.

Chad: I’m gonna kill him.

Sonny: Okay.

Chad: I’m gonna find leo stark, and I am gonna kill him.

Sonny: Chad.

Chad: I’m gonna get rolf to bring him back from the dead so I can kill him again.

Sonny: Buddy, hey. You’re gonna have to calm down.

Chad: Calm dow–how am i supposed to calm down when this is on the front page of the paper?

Sonny: I mean, it does make you look pretty busty.

Chad: Really?

Sonny: [Laughing] What?

Chad: It’s not the time to be funny, all right. You know what it is? Right now would be a good moment for us to reflect upon the fact that all of this humiliation and degradation that I am going through and continue to go through in this whole gay fantasia is your fault.

Sonny: Chad. It’s a picture of you in drag, okay? It’s not that big of a deal. It’s not degrading. It’s not humiliating–

Chad: The story is.

Sonny: What–what story?

Chad: The exclusive that leo stark gave to “the intruder.” Listen to this. Listen. “When I first met chad dimera in phoenix, there was an instant attraction between us.” In his dreams. “Even though he was a married man, he insisted we go out to a gay club. And after a wild night of drinking and dancing, the two of us ended up in bed together.” You know, and he leaves out the very pertinent fact that he crawled into my bed like a slug. I mean, the little creep outed me. And I wasn’t even in!

Leo: I want you back, craig. I want you to forgive me, and I want you to marry me.

Craig: Sorry. You already have a husband.

Leo: I told you, I only married darius so he could get his green card. He begged me to help him. Do you know how cold those winters are in canada? They are hell on his complexion, which is not her strong suit to begin with.

Craig: And why in god’s name would I care about any of this now?

Leo: Because I need to make you see I don’t love darius or any other man. I love you.

Nancy: [Chuckles] So you really expect a picture of chad dimera in drag to convince me that the devil made you not call me?

Clyde: What? No, no, no. That’s the wrong story. Here.

Nancy: [Sighs] “Crypt captive baby daddy rescued: Pregnant wife now missing”? Oh, clyde. You must be so worried.

Clyde: Appreciate that. But I’m really sorry about the dinner.

Nancy: No, no. It’s okay. I mean, you’ve got so much on your mind and, well, you just forgot.

Clyde: I was hoping that I could maybe make it up to you if you’ve got the time, and could take you out to lunch.

Nancy: But what about your son and your daughter-in-law?

Clyde: Well, police are looking for her, and ben would rather be alone right now. He’s always been that way. Unlike me, who likes company. Especially nice company, like you.

Nancy: [Spluttering] I would love to, yes.

Clyde: Well, good. Hope you don’t mind brady pub. I do have an employee discount over there.

Nancy: That would be fine.

Clyde: Good. Then you can tell me all about your ex-husband’s wedding.

Craig: Leo, I have heard you say “I love you” a million times. But I know that you were lying to me from the second we met. I–I don’t know why I would believe you now, hm.

Leo: You should believe me because of your feet.

Craig: My feet?

Leo: Yes. Your feet. When they hurt after a long shift at the hospital, I rub them for you. And when you order some drink you can’t stand, some fruity something, I trade my scotch and soda, no complaints. When you’re driving me around, I touch the back of your head, and I curl your hair into those little circles because I know how much you like it. Those are just some of the little ways that I show I love you. But there’s also a big way. You should know that I love you because for the first time in my life, I admitted that I did something wrong and I apologized. I’m sorry I lied to you. I’m sorry I seduced you and tried to marry you for your money. I am sorry for so many things. But there is one thing I am not sorry for.

Craig: And what’s that? Hm?

Leo: Even if we are through, I am not sorry that I fell in love with you. Because our time together have been the best days of my life.

Gwen: I’m telling you the truth.

Jennifer: He has your word on that? But really, I mean, what is your word worth? There’s no one in this room that would believe anything that you would say right now, gwen.

Gwen: My father asked me a question. Are you going to let me answer it?

Jennifer: Yeah, yeah. But first, can I remind you that we already talked about this? You swore to me that my mother’s death was an accident. And I believed you. You looked me in the eye and you told me that you were sorry, that it wasn’t intentional. And I–I accepted that. I–I accepted you as part of our family. So back then, was that the truth or not? Life’s been hard enough.

Gwen: I was telling you the truth that day. Your mother’s death was an accident.

Abigail: Which compels me to reiterate that that’s not what you said to me at the wedding. Unless, of course, I managed to misinterpret “I killed that bitch on purpose.”

Gwen: No, you heard exactly what I wanted you to hear, and you took it just the way I wanted you to take it.

Abigail: But why would you say something like that if it wasn’t true?

Gwen: Can you not comprehend that I wanted to hurt you? I mean, really, are you so perfect that you can’t understand a base impulse?

Jack: So that was a lie?

Gwen: Yes, it was a lie. Look, we all know that she is wonderful and that I am dirt. But she said that she would be my matron of honor. She said she’d be my sister, and I believed her. But instead she used my wedding as a way to kill any chance that I would ever at being happy, to make sure that I would lose xander, to make sure I would lose my father. I was handcuffed, so I couldn’t exactly punch her, could I? So instead, I punched her with my words.

Chad: “It was clear that since that fabulous night to remember, chad could not forget about me. When I returned to salem, he left his wife and small children at home and came knocking at my hotel room door drunk and begging me for sex.”

Sonny: Chad, I’m–

Chad: Shut up. There’s more. “Earlier, his soon-to-be cuckolded wife, abigail dimera–” that’s great. He took a swipe at her. She’s gonna love that. “Abigail dimera confided to me that chad was obsessed with me.” As I recall, that was another one of your ideas. You were full of wonderful ideas that night, weren’t you?

Sonny: I know. Mea culpa. All right? Mea culpa.

Chad: “But I rejected chad’s desperate pleas for a one-on-one liaison because I was engaged and in love with another man.”

Sonny: Wh– who are you calling?

Chad: Who do you think I am calling? I am calling my lawyer, so I can sue “the intruder” and leo for libel.

Sonny: Are you sure you want to do that?

Craig: Are you trying to play me again, leo?

Leo: I’ve always been a player. But in this particular moment, I’m being perfectly straight with you. Poor choice of words.

Craig: You are actually gay, aren’t you?

Leo: Now, that would be quite the con, huh? But you more than anybody should know, I am gay.

Craig: You said you fell in love with me, but when we first met–

Leo: You were just another mark.

Craig: Yeah.

Leo: I could tell you were closeted, so I lured you out with every intention of marrying you, divorcing you, and taking you for every penny you had. I would’ve succeeded too, had it not been for will, sonny, chad, brady, and your daughter, chloe.

Nancy: I guess you could say that craig and leo’s wedding didn’t go off without a hitch. But then again, maybe– maybe it did.

Clyde: I have no idea what that means, but I look forward to you explaining it to me over lunch. Shall we?

Chloe: Mom?

Nancy: Oh, hi, honey.

Chloe: What the hell are you doing with this guy? Find your beat

Nancy: Chloe, language. Clyde, this is my daughter and her boyfriend, brady black. Oh, is it all right if I call you her boyfriend?

Brady: Yeah, yeah, that’s– that’s fine by me.

Nancy: Oh, good. Well, this is clyde weston.

Chloe: Yeah, we know who he is.

Nancy: Oh, good. Then you should know we are about to go on our first date.

Chloe: Over my dead body.

Chad: Well, the way I see it, I have two options. I can kill him or I can sue him.

Sonny: Okay, look, I really don’t think you want to do that.

Chad: Yes, sonny, I really do want to do that.

Sonny: Okay, look, in order to sue for libel, there has to be false statement purporting to be fact. Technically, everything in this article, everything that you and abigail said and did is true. You did try to seduce leo.

Chad: Yeah, because you pleaded with me to do it. Once again, this was your fault. Actually, you know what, sonny? This was my fault, okay? Because I let you talk me into what I knew to be a deeply, truly horrible idea.

Leo: No matter what they did to try and break us up, I was always one step ahead of them. And I would’ve gotten away with it too, had it not been for those meddling kids.

Craig: Scooby-doo?

Leo: Getting up early on sunday mornings to watch old saturday morning cartoons with you. Another example of how I love you.

Craig: Or two cases of arrested development.

Leo: It just got scary, how much we have in common, how easy it was to be with you, how fun.

Craig: And my money had nothing to do with how easy it all was?

Leo: Well, I won’t deny it. I liked your money too. I tell you, that prenup chloe had drawn up was a stroke of genius. A move I did not anticipate. When I saw it, my first thought was, game over. There’s nothing I can do but walk away. There’s nothing left in this for me.

Craig: Then why did you sign it, hm?

Leo: I signed it because in that moment, when given the choice between giving up everything that I had worked for, everything that you had worked for, I didn’t care about losing any of it. I didn’t care that darius was gonna be furious with me. I only cared about losing you. And now, the million-dollar question. Do you believe me? I think you do. But you don’t have to answer that question. Answer this one instead. Can you forgive me? Can we please start over?

Abigail: Why should we believe you, hm? After all of the horrible things that you have done to our family, it is hardly a stretch to think that you could’ve killed grandma laura. You drugged me. It took me months to recover, but I did; I was lucky. But poor sarah? You made sure she got a second dose of the drug. She may never be herself ever again.

Jack: Actually, there’s reason for hope. Gwen told xander where he could find rolf’s antidote. She’s doing what she can to undo the harm.

Abigail: [Scoffs] So what, am I– am I just supposed to act like she’s mother teresa now? Or dad, maybe her back is up against the wall, she’s actually having to pay for something that she’s done, and this is just some last minute sympathy. You know, I sure hope that maggie and xander take the time to test whatever it is you led them to.

Gwen: Do you really think–

Abigail: That you would do it again? Yes. I do. You know why? Because you have made it very clear that anybody who is loved by anyone that you think is supposed to love you is fair game. I think you would be willing to hurt sarah now more than you ever have.

Gwen: You said your piece. Now, I’d like a moment alone with my father, please.

Abigail: I bet you would.

Jennifer: Jack. I will support any decision that you make right now. But I want you to know that I will never trust that woman to be a part of our family ever again.

Gwen: You said at the wedding that you were done with me. And now, today, there’s even more damning evidence against me. So I take it nothing’s gonna change your mind about me. Right?

Jack: You’ll always be my daughter.

Gwen: Yeah, you’re talking biologically.

Jack: No. When laura sent your mother away, she made you think that I turned my back on you, that I knew about you, but went on living my life pretending you didn’t exist. I never chose to do that.

Gwen: So– so we can move past this?

Jack: I will always be your father. But after what you did to sarah, and to abigail, I honestly don’t know what kind of a family we could ever be.

[Dramatic music]

Nancy: Chloe, I know it’s hard to see me moving on from your father, but what’s good for the gander is good for the goose. Especially when the gander likes ganders.

Chloe: Oh, mom, I don’t care that you’re dating. It’s who you’re dating. This guy just got out of prison.

Nancy: I know that. Clyde told me. You know, listen, men can change who they are. And clyde said he’s changed, and I believe him. Now, shall we go? I’m starving.

Chloe: Ugh, why am I getting a feeling of déj vu? I just–I’ve spent the last few months trying to stop one parent from dating the wrong person, and now I have to do the same with the other parent?

Brady: Look, I was here for you when it was leo and your dad, so I’m gonna be here for you with clyde and your mom.

Chloe: Thank you. At least I know I’m dating the right person.

Chad: Well, then if I can’t sue him, I’m gonna give my own interview. I’ll tell everyone that leo stark is a bigamist.

Sonny: Chad, you really want to sink down to his level?

Chad: Yes, he hit me below the belt. It’s time to return the favor.

Sonny: I’m telling you, I–I really just think you should let this go. Okay, stories like this, they tend to just fizzle out on their own. You would just be adding fuel to the fire.

Chad: Oh, yeah? That’s easy for you to say. You’re not even mentioned in the article.

Sonny: Wait, what? You’re right.

Chad: Yeah. Why is that? Why didn’t leo come after you? Maybe leo was right. Maybe that’s why you didn’t come to the wedding.

Sonny: Don’t even infer that. Okay, I told you, I had a business meeting. Okay, and besides, you heard what he said. Leo was going after everyone who came between him and craig. And I have a sickening feeling you were just the first one on the list.

Craig: I do believe you love me, leo. Part of me wants to forgive you and take you in my arms and hold you and never let you go.

Leo: But?

Craig: But I don’t trust you. And trust is something that matters to me. I took a huge leap of faith to be with you. I had to stop living a lie, a lie that I was telling myself and telling the world.

Leo: That’s a good thing, craig.

Craig: Yeah. But in the process, I tore apart my family, and I hurt the only woman I ever loved, just to love you.

Leo: Does that mean you’re going back to be with nancy?

Craig: No. I am gay. And I will never hide that again.

[Sighs] But you and I, we’re done. I left your stuff downstairs.

[Soft dramatic music]

Leo: Do you hate me?

Craig: No, leo, I don’t hate you. But I cannot be with you. But because of you, I can now be myself. Goodbye, kiddo. With all that’s happened, I– I don’t regret loving you.

[Dramatic music]

Brady: Sonny.

Sonny: Hey.

Brady: I just saw the article in which leo outed chad.

Sonny: Yeah, I was there when chad saw it, and it was not pretty.

Brady: Yeah. Yeah. I’ll admit, I mean, when I saw the picture, it was– it was kind of funny, but then I read the article, and I’ll tell you, that leo, he’s quite the creep. I mean, every one of those lies was calculated to hurt.

Sonny: Yeah, well, that’s leo for you. He didn’t just go after chad. He went after his marriage, his family.

Brady: Yeah, which is odd. I think it’s odd because why wouldn’t he–why wouldn’t he go after me or chloe? Why chad?

Sonny: Or me.

Leo: Well, don’t worry. You’re next. And in case you’re feeling left out, brady, once I’m done with sonny boy here, you and you vacuous little girlfriend will then be next.

Chloe: Dad, hey, I got your text. I was starting to think that you maybe never wanted to see me again.

Craig: Oh, now you know that was never gonna happen.

Chloe: I know last night was awful; I’m sorry.

Craig: It’s okay; there’s no need for a postmortem. Leo and I have said our goodbyes.

Chloe: Again, I’m sorry.

Craig: It’s okay. I know I was upset last night.

Chloe: And you had every right to be.

Craig: Ah, but, having had time to think, I realized that everything you did, you had reason for. You did everything because you love me.

Chloe: I do. And I swear that’s why I did it.

Craig: I know.

Chloe: Unfortunately, I have a lot of experience in putting my life back together again, so if you need me to talk you through it, you know?

Craig: I’m okay. Thanks, honey.

Chloe: Have you eaten anything? Want to get some lunch?

Craig: I’m okay.

Chloe: You don’t want to face the world, we can just order some room service.

Craig: Sweetie, after talking to leo, I made a few decisions. I’m leaving salem. And I’m going back to new york.

Clyde: Nancy. I don’t know you very well. But what I do know, I like. A lot.

Nancy: Oh. My, my, my. This is like the beginning of our first date, and that sounded like the prelude to a kiss-off.

Clyde: No. No, think of it more as a– it’s like an offering for an easy way out. You see, I know what my son means to me. And the last thing in the world I want to do is come between you and your daughter. So if you’d like to back out now, that’s totally cool with me.

[Soft dramatic music]

[Door opens]

Abigail: Dad left. It’s just you and me. And I want the truth. Did you or did you not kill my grandmother?

It’s the most wonderful

time of the year

Jennifer: The horrible thing is, jack, is given the arrogance of what my mom did, and then gwen had to pay for that arrogance, I can understand why she would want my mom dead.

Jack: After you left, she swore to me that she didn’t kill laura, that she was telling the truth when she told us that all she was trying to do was hurt abigail, which in and of itself is pretty horrifying, as if she hadn’t hurt abigail enough already.

Jennifer: So which of the two scenarios are the truth, jack?

Jack: Damned if I know.

Abigail: So were you lying to my mother when you said you didn’t kill her? Or were you lying to me when you said that you did?

Gwen: Not knowing is killing you, isn’t it? And knowing that, I’m never gonna give you an answer. Oh, abigail. Poor you. I am never going to tell you what really happened to your sweet little granny. You will never know. Payback’s a bitch, isn’t it?

Chad: No, my wife is not leaving me for another woman. No, no, no. No, I did not have a threesome with two men. I don’t know where you get your information, buddy, but if you print this garbage, I am gonna make you pay.

[Cell phone ringing] Ugh.

Nancy: Clyde, I love my daughter. But I’m a grown woman. And my days of pleasing other people are over. The things that I have been through in the last couple of months, I deserve my happy ending.

Chloe: What? What about your job?

Craig: I already gave seth burns my resignation. I didn’t feel good about taking the job away from kayla. The hospital will run much better with her in charge.

Chloe: That’s not true.

Craig: Mm.

Chloe: But–so there’s no– there’s no changing your mind?

Craig: No. But I’m glad you came over so i could say goodbye before I left. I wanted to see you. And I wanted to tell you, princess, that I am sorry. I’m sorry about how much I hurt you and how much I hurt your mother.

Chloe: Dad, all I ever wanted was for you to be happy.

Craig: I know.

Chloe: Okay? And I know that you were never gonna be happy not being who you really are. And the fact that leo is–

Craig: Ah.

Chloe: Okay, I’m not gonna repeat what I think about leo. But I just hope that someday you meet a man who’s worthy of you.

Craig: Me too. Here’s hoping.

Chloe: And despite all the drama and the fighting, I was really glad to have you back. And I’m gonna miss you.

Craig: Aw, honey.

[Both sniffling] I’m gonna miss you too. No man has ever had a better daughter. I love you, sweetie. I love you.

Chloe: I love you too.

Brady: I see that craig has sent you packing.

Sonny: Yeah, with your tail between your legs.

Leo: Yes. Craig and I are done. But I’m not going anywhere. This may have started as a scam, but it became very personal to me. And you all cost me the man that I love. So remember, hell hath no fury like a gay man scorned. Because I’m coming for you. I’m coming for all of you. =
