Tony: Anna? Where on earth are you going?

Gwen: You want to bust me out of here?

Ava: Hey, we did it before when we helped kristen escape.

Gwen: [Sighs] What’s the catch?

Ava: There isn’t one. Look, I just– look, I know I let you down, and I’m trying to make up for it. Trying to be a friend. So you in?

Sarah: Xander?

Xander: Sarah, it’s– is it really you?

Sarah: Yeah, of course it’s me. Mom? What’s going on?

Maggie: Your voice, it–it–it’s normal. Oh, sarah, my darling. Does this mean you’re all right?

Sarah: Yeah, I’m fine, mom. Why–why do you look like you’re about to cry? Why are you both looking at me like that?

Xander: Because we– because we’re just so happy. So very happy. It worked, maggie.

Maggie: Yes.

Xander: It worked.

Maggie: Oh!

[Sarah chuckles]

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

[Soft orchestration]

Xander: Look at her, maggie. She–she’s herself again.

Maggie: Thank god. Thank god we gave her that antidote.

Sarah: I–what are we talking about? An antidote?

Xander: We’ll explain everything very soon, I– I promise. But–

Sarah: What’s going on? Why– why am I in a hospital?

Xander: You were drugged, but we gave you an antidote, and thank god it worked.

Sarah: Drugged by who? Why? What?

Maggie: You know, it’s a long story, and we’ll get around to it at some point.

Xander: But all that matters right now is that you, darling sarah…

[Sighs] You’re with us again. And you’re…yourself. And we’re just– we’re just so grateful. So very grateful.

Maggie: Yes.


Gwen: So first you throw me under the bus, practically ruining my life, and now you are, oh, so eager to help me. I mean, what am I missing here, ava?

Ava: Gwen, I want to help you because I threw you under the bus. I told you, I feel guilty. I feel guilty because, you know, you’re the one paying the price when the person who should be behind bars is kristen.

Gwen: Kristen is not the one who helped me switch out the antidote that would have brought back sarah. I did that all on my own. And for what? I’m– xander and I are over now anyway.

Ava: I’m sorry about that. But I get it. I mean, if anyone knows, you do, that I’ve certainly done a lot worse to hang on to the men that I love.

Gwen: Wonderful. You win that contest, okay? Now get the hell out of here and take your offer with you.

Ava: Okay, gwen, I think you need to be realistic here, all right? Gwen, you got–you got– you got no lawyer, you got no fiancé, you got no family to help you. All you got is me. But hey, if you want to languish here in prison all alone, it’s your choice.

Anna: [Small laugh] You know, darling, I– I was going through my closet and I realized that I have so many beautiful clothes that I never wear, so I just thought I’d run them down to the community center.

Tony: Ah, in a suitcase?

Anna: Is that a problem?

Tony: No, but jumping bail is. Listen, anna, I know you’re scared because your trial starts tomorrow. But that doesn’t mean you’re going to be convicted.

Anna: Oh, the heck it doesn’t, tony. Trask is out for blood. The judge is in victor’s pocket. And maggie–maggie is hellbent on making me pay for what I did to sarah.

Tony: But you just can’t take off like that.

Anna: I can and I will. I have no choice. I’m going on the lam, and there’s nothing you can do to stop me. Like pulsing, electric shocks,

Tony: You were just going to leave without even saying goodbye?

Anna: Only to avoid implicating you. Tony you can’t be caught aiding and abetting a criminal.

Tony: Oh, you’re not a criminal, anna. You’re my wife. I want to help you.

Anna: I don’t deserve your help, tony. You kept telling me that sarah horton was no threat to our marriage. That she wasn’t really renee. But I didn’t listen.

Tony: Oh, for god’s sake, listen now. You can’t just leave out that door.

Anna: Tony, I have turned sarah into…a rutabaga. And it’s now time for me to pay the piper.

Maggie: Xander… I am regretting that I didn’t consent to sarah getting the antidote sooner.

Xander: No, maggie, don’t do that to yourself. No regrets. Hey, you worried it was too risky. You’d every right to be worried under the circumstances. But sarah’s back. That’s all that matters now.

Maggie: Mmm. I have to go.

Xander: What?

Maggie: Now. There’s something I need to take care of.

Xander: Right now?

Maggie: Well, sarah’s okay. And kayla could be in there with her for a while. And this would be a good time. Call me if you need me. I promise I won’t be long.

[Soft music]

[Elevator bell dings]

Gwen: Let’s say… that I did take you up on your offer. What happens with your deal with trask?

Ava: Nothing. I held up my end of the bargain. You escape, it’s not my problem.

Gwen: Unless the cops find out that you helped me.

Ava: [Scoffs] What, rafe hernandez and his merry band of idiots? Please. Anyway, I do–I don’t see you having any better offers, so– time’s running out. Listen… if you decide to call me, here’s my number. It’s a burner phone. And remember, clock’s ticking.

[Dramatic music]

My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

[Phones ringing]

Jack: Gwen.

Gwen: [Sniffles] Jack– I’m–I’m sorry, I’m a bit surprised to see you. I–I thought– I thought you’d washed your hands of me for good.

Jack: I know. I led you to believe that. And truthfully, I’m sad, angry, and appalled when I think of what you’ve done in the past. And I’m sure that you know that when you hurt abigail, you hurt me. But…

Gwen: But?

Jack: You’ve had a lot of pain in your life. And I believe that’s the reason that you’ve caused a lot of pain. And I want to help you stop– stop doing that. Because–[Inhales unsteadily] In spite of it all, you’re my daughter.

[Sighs] You’re a part of me… my heart.

Gwen: [Sighs] That’s–that’s very kind.

Jack: You have it in you to do the right thing, and you know it. You proved it when you told xander where to find that antidote.

Gwen: [Sniffles]

[Sighs] It–it w–it was the least I could do. That’s an understatement, obviously. I– I hope it works. I do, I hope she recovers.

Jack: I hope so too. And I–I– I believe that you can recover too from this compulsion for revenge, and this need to get what you want, the consequences be damned.

Gwen: Are you saying that you have faith in me then, do you?

Jack: I do. And I care about you. I always have, I always will. Which is why I asked justin to represent you. And he’s on board. He’s agreed to take your case.

Gwen: Oh.

Anna: I’m sorry, tony. My mind is made up. I have to leave. So I’m sorry, but this is the end of the road for us.

Tony: Really? That’s so sad. I–it’s heartbreaking.

Anna: I know, I agree. But I really have to go. I mean, I have miles to go before I even sleep.

Tony: Oh. Well, anna, you don’t really think I was going to let you flee?

Anna: You have no choice, tony.

Tony: Oh?

Anna: Goodbye, tony. I will love you forever.

Tony: Mm. Anna–

Anna: Oh!

Maggie: Going somewhere?

Anna: [Laughs nervously] I have a very important errand to run.

Maggie: Well, I need to talk to you.

Anna: I’m sorry, maggie. It’ll have to wait.

Maggie: Anna… I really think you’ll want to hear this now. I know your trial starts tomorrow. And I’ve decided to drop the charges.

Kayla: Okay.

Xander: Uh, how are we, uh… how are we doing in here?

Kayla: Ah, well, you know, we’re all done. And I would say I am happy to report that physically and cognitively, sarah seems to be just fine.

Sarah: Sarah is just fine. So… does anyone want to tell me what drug I was injected with?

Xander: You didn’t tell her?

Kayla: Um, I didn’t– I didn’t have a chance.

Sarah: Okay, well, I don’t need to be handled with kid gloves. I’m a doctor, I can take it.

Kayla: You were given a dangerous psychotropic.

Xander: By kristen dimera.

Sarah: Kristen dimera?

Kayla: Yes, and it caused a lot of damage. Delusions, hallucinations.

Xander: You haven’t been yourself for quite some time. But…[Sighs] You’re back to normal now. Thank god.

Sarah: Okay, um… well, I have a lot of questions. Um, but for now, I will just say thank you to both of you for taking care of me.

Xander: Well, having you back is–well, it’s all the thanks we need.

Kayla: Definitely.

Sarah: Okay, well, since my exam, uh, went well, could we get the ball rolling on getting me released?

Kayla: Well, I would like to do a few new scans. Just to make sure that everything’s fine. Why don’t I just check with radiology and make sure that they can see you right now. Okay? All right, good. All righty, huh?

Xander: Oh, sarah.

Sarah: [Giggles]

Xander: [Sighs] There are no words to express what it means to be here with you now. And you’re looking so beautiful. Just being sat next to you, my– my heart is beating so hard.

Sarah: Oh, wow. It sure is.


Xander: God, I missed you so much.

Sarah: You don’t have to miss me. I’m right here. And it seems like it’s been a very long time since I’ve gotten to do this.

It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle

Xander: I just can’t believe it. It’s just so amazing to have you back in my arms again.

Sarah: [Giggles] For me it was–felt like yesterday.

Xander: I wish. I’ve been wishing. For this, for you. Ever since you left me, I– god, I can’t wait to take you home.

Kayla: Well, good news. Radiology will see you now.

Sarah: Oh.

Xander: Um, do you know how long she’ll be?

Kayla: No, I don’t know. But I know how anxious you are to get her out of here, so I will let you know as soon as I know something.

Xander: Thank you. And I’ll see you in a bit.

Sarah: I can’t wait.

Xander: [Sighs] Me neither. I’ll, uh–I’ll text maggie. Keep her in the loop as well.

Anna: You’re dropping the charges? Why?

Maggie: If gwen hadn’t switched the vials, what you did to sarah would have brought her back to us that very day. So what you did, well, it wasn’t–it wasn’t terrible at all, as it turned out.

Anna: Oh, maggie, it was terrible. Truly terrible. I was thoughtless and reckless– well, I’M… I am truly, sincerely sorry for what I put you through. And I’m so grateful that your daughter is going to be okay. Thank you for telling us. And for dropping the charges. I can’t even tell you how grateful I am.

Tony: Same here.

Maggie: Well. [Laughs] Okay, then I think I better get back to the hospital.

Tony: Oh, please give sarah our best.

Maggie: Will do. Take care.

Anna: Thank you. Oh, my god. I can’t believe it, I’m free.

Tony: So you glad you didn’t go on the run?

Anna: [Laughs] Oh, I’m so glad.

Jack: If you plead guilty, to the lesser charges, justin thinks he can get your sentence knocked down to five years.

Gwen: [Gasps] Five years?

Jack: That’s nowhere near what you’d be facing if a jury found you guilty. I’d say it’s a gift considering what you’ve done.

Gwen: Yeah, you’re right. But melinda trask doesn’t really give out gifts, especially to the likes of me.

Jack: You’d be saving the city the expense of a trial. If you agree to all this, it could be settled very quickly.

Gwen: In other words, I could be going to prison very quickly.

Jack: Gwen… this is not the end. If you make smart choices, good choices, it could be a whole new beginning. If–if you decide–[Sniffles] To accept, give justin a call. But don’t wait too long.

Gwen: Dad? Sorry, I know I don’t– I don’t have a right to call you that anymore. I just, um… I wanted to say thank you.

Jack: [Weeps]


Gwen: Oh, god. Lemons.

Anna: Oh.

[Glasses clink]

Tony: To your freedom.

Anna: [Laughs] Ah. I really am sorry, tony. I’m sorry for everything. Throughout this whole ordeal, I’ve been thinking of nothing but myself. I wasn’t ever thinking about you.

Tony: Oh, you thinking of me constantly.

Anna: Yes, but in a possessive and childish way. I know now that you only went along with sarah’s delusions because facing the truth would have been too hard for her. I was so mad with jealousy, I–I couldn’t see that.

Tony: Oh. Anna, I know that I hurt you as well, but I felt I had to help sarah. Maybe it’s because I wasn’t able to help renee all those years ago… the way her life ended so tragically, and I couldn’t stop it. I know you may not want to hear this, but… I did love her.

Anna: [Sniffles] I think that we should go down to the crypt and pay our respects to renee.

Tony: You’d do that?

Anna: For you, darling, I would do anything.

Tony: [Chuckles] Oh, thank you, anna. Thank you.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Kayla: Okay, there you go.

Maggie: Xander texted me. He said he’d be back soon.

Kayla: Great.

Sarah: Well, just– can’t we just go home?

Kayla: Well, I want to get those test results back. In fact, I’ll go to radiology right now and, um, see how it’s going.

Maggie: Thanks.

Sarah: Thank you, kayla.

Kayla: Yeah, yeah.

Sarah: [Chuckles]

Maggie: Okay. Ooh.

Sarah: [Groans] You have no idea how bad I want to get out of this gown. And take a shower in my own bathroom.

Maggie: Mmm.

Sarah: Speaking of bathrooms, uh, I used it earlier and I– and I caught a glimpse of this. What’s with these pigtails? I haven’t worn my hair like this since I was a little girl.

Maggie: Well, um, it has gotten long.

Sarah: I’ve been here a while. Okay, well I hate these.

Maggie: Well, I could cut them.

Sarah: Really?

Maggie: Sure, why not? I used to cut your hair all the time when you were a little girl.

Sarah: Yeah, that would be fun, and a little rebellious. I like my hair so much better when it’s short. So does xander.

Gwen: [Sighs] Xander.

[Phone rings]

Xander: I, uh, saw jack outside. Told him the good news.

Gwen: [Exhales] Wh– what good news?

Xander: The antidote worked.

Gwen: That’s good. That’s really good. I’m glad you told me that.

Xander: I wanted to thank you, gwen.

Gwen: I’m really glad it worked out.

Xander: So what’s, um– what’s going on with you now?

Gwen: Oh. [Exhales] Um…my father hired justin to represent me. He says that he can get my sentence down to five years if I plead guilty to the lesser crimes.

Xander: And are you gonna do it?

Gwen: I don’t know yet.

[Sighs] But I do know this is probably– this is probably the last time you and I are gonna see one another. So there’s something I would like to say to you. With depression, you just feel…blah.

Maggie: What do you think?

Sarah: Mom, it’s perfect.

Maggie: [Chuckles lightly] You look like your old self again.

Sarah: I feel like my old self. Thank you.

Maggie: You’re very welcome. I don’t want to let go. I just, uh, imagine losing you again.

Sarah: I’m not going anywhere.

Maggie: Okay. I’m gonna hold you to that. Oh, sarah.

[Sighs] My darling girl. Oh, I’ve missed you so much. How I love you.


Gwen: Do you remember when we first met?

[Clicks tongue] I couldn’t bloody stand you.

Xander: That’s what you want to tell me?

Gwen: No, there’s more, obviously. In the beginning, I found you insufferable. You were arrogant, annoying… what an obnoxious nob you were.

[Chuckles] Then I saw another side to you. A softer side. You weren’t just some thug with no conscience and no soul. You felt. And you felt deeply. You felt deeply for me.

Xander: Look, gwen, I–

Gwen: God, you were so good to me, xander. Really, you were, you– you made so many sacrifices to protect me from my lies. Let’s see, what was there, um, disposing of a body, you went to jail, gave up $1 million, all to protect a woman so pathetic–

Xander: You’re not pathetic, gwen.

Gwen: Fine–a woman so desperate to have a relationship with her father that she just became this… hurricane of destruction. You see…

[Sniffles] When you spend your whole life deprived of any affection, and…someone walks into your life and genuinely cares about you–

Xander: You’ll do anything to hold on to them.

Gwen: You get it. You get it. You were the only one who ever got it. You are the only one who’s ever understood me. No one has ever been there for me the way that you have before.

[Sighs] And I blew it. I blew it all to hell.

[Sniffles] I mean, you gave me your heart, didn’t you xander? And, um…god, I was so afraid of losing it that I absolutely crossed the line. I did. I kept you from the woman that you truly loved. The woman who inspired you to be a better man. The woman who helped you open that beautiful heart of yours.

[Sniffles] I was wrong. And I will always, always regret it.

[Sniffles] But do you know that through… all of my mistakes… with everything that is has cost me…

[Sighs] I also received the most wonderful gift. It’s one that you gave me. The gift of love.

[Laughs] You made me realize that I am worthy of love. And more importantly…

[Sighs] You made me see that I am also capable of loving someone else too. So…

[Inhales unsteadily] My engagement ring. This belongs to you now. Although I’m really gonna miss wearing it.


[Exhales heavily]

[Sniffles] I wish you happiness, xander. I do. I wish happiness for you and sarah.

Xander: Thank you, gwen. I, um, I should get back to the hospital. So, um… I guess this is goodbye.

Gwen: [Mouthing] Yeah.

[Sniffles] Goodbye, xander.

[Emotional music]


Tony: Are you sure you want to go inside? I mean, with all that’s gone on here recently.

Anna: Oh, darling, I think the worst is behind us. I mean, ben and johnny are both free, your evil twin andre is, well, a pile of dust. And the devil is on the lam. So I think we have nothing to be afraid of. I think we should go in, do what we came to do, and then after that we can go back to our champagne and back to our celebration.

[Keys jingling]

Tony: Shall we?

Anna: Mm-hmm.

I’ve got moderate to severe

plaque psoriasis.

Gwen: [Sighs]

[Line ringing]

[Phone beeps]

Ava: Well, that was fast.

Gwen: You told me I don’t have much time.

Ava: Well, and I take it since you’re calling me that you decided to say yes.

Gwen: Actually, it’s a no. I wanted to phone you and thank you. Your offer has helped clarify some things for me. And, um… for the first time in my life, I’m going to take responsibility for what I’ve done. Anyway…it’s only five years in prison.

Ava: Five years. That’s not nothing.

Gwen: I have a chance to make things right. And if I take it…

[Sighs] I don’t know, I might actually have a chance of having a family. And there’s no guarantees, of course, but… if I make good choices, if I make smart choices, then this could be a new beginning for me.

Ava: Well, good luck to you, gwen.

Gwen: Thank you. I’m gonna need it.

Xander: Your hair!

Sarah: [Giggles] Mom cut it.

Maggie:[Chuckles] What do you think? It turned out fine, huh?

Xander: Oh, sarah, you look so beautiful.

Sarah: Thank you. Did you happen to see kayla when you came in?

Xander: I did. Yeah, she said she’d let us know as soon as you can leave.

Sarah: Ugh, I’m so tired of waiting.

Xander: Well, is there anything I can get for you? Something to eat?

Sarah: No. No, I’m not hungry. But there is one thing that I want desperately.

Xander: Name it.

Sarah: I want to see my baby.

[Uneasy music]

Anna: [Sighs] Well, rest in peace, renee. I know–I know it’s rather ironic, considering I never gave you a moment’s peace while you were alive. But despite everything that happened between us, I am sorry that you were taken from this world so soon, and… I do hope that you’re in a better place now. Mmm.

Tony: That was lovely, anna.

Anna: Your turn.

Tony: Are you sure?

Anna: Mmm. You can say anything you want. I’ll give you a moment.

Tony: Thank you. Hmm. Character, I’m told, reveals itself in times of adversity. We show our true colors when things in life get difficult. And they were difficult for us, weren’t they? What could be worse than finding out that the man that you were planning to marry was your brother? But you didn’t break things off because you wanted to hurt me, you broke things off because you wanted to protect me, to spare me… even though you had to carry the pain of that secret all alone. But that was the kind of person you were, renee. It may be too little, too late, but I did love you, deeply. And I’ll never forget you.

Anna: There must have been some good in renee for you to have loved her.

Tony: Thanks for saying that, anna. And, also, thank you for suggesting we– we come here.

Anna: Mm-hmm.

Tony: But then… that’s why you are the love of my life.

[Both chuckle]

Anna: As you are mine, my darling tony.

Tony: Well, I think we’ve finished what we came to do. So shall we?

Anna: Ooh. What is that? A pacifier.

Tony: Where did that come from?

Anna: [Gasps] Oh, my goodness. This must be ciara’s baby’S. Allie must have brought him here.

Tony: But where are they now?
