Jan: Actually, it’s jan.
Belle: What do you want?
Jan: We need to talk. It’s important.
Belle: Well, I’m working. So what is it about?
Jan: Well, if you wanna find out, you’re gonna have to come to me. You know where I live. Gotta go.
Shawn: Who are you talking to?
Ej: I haven’t always been the best father to you, giovanni. Especially of late. And yet, you still came through for me. I can’t tell you how much that means.
Johnny: Yeah. The papers are all signed, so you wanna shake on it?
Ej: [Chuckles] We can do better than that.
Ej: I love you, son. And I thank you.
Johnny: Well, it was the– I was the least I could do, given everything, you know, that I put you through. I still feel a little guilty.
Ej: Don’T. Don’T. It’s not your fault. I’m just glad that you’re back, healthy and whole.
Johnny: Me too, dad. Me too. I’ll see you. Uncle chad.
Ej: Good news. My son has given me his proxy and he’s agreed to vote his shares with ours.
Chad: Well, we’re well on our way of getting rid of gabi once and for all.
Gabi: Hi, I wanted to make a reservation for tonight. Yes. Yes, tonight. The best table that you have, please. And the best champagne. You know what? Could you add candles and flowers? The whole deal. Yeah, it’s a big night. We have a lot to celebrate. Thank you.
Jake: Let’s get started, huh?
Gabi: Oh, you’re not gonna apologize for being late on the first day?
Jake: Not my fault, okay? I was here on time in hr all morning filling out paperwork. Now that I’m here, let’s get to it, huh?
Gabi: Welcome back to dimera enterprises.
Jake: Yeah, you know…
[Chuckles] Now that I’m here, I’m starting to think that this was all maybe–
Gabi: Maybe what? What?
Jake: A big mistake.
Tripp: No, mom. I’m fine, really. No, you don’t have to come up here. You were here all night watching me sleep. And I appreciate that. But now you need to go home and get some rest. I will. Love you too.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Tripp: How you feeling?
Allie: I’m fine. But you look–
Tripp: Terrible, I know. But now, I’m– I’m much better now. How’s henry? He’s good. He’s with my dad at the park.
Tripp: Lucas is in town?
Tripp: Don’t you wanna hang with them?
Allie: No. I wanted to come see you, tripp. To thank you for saving my life.
Chanel: [Crying softly] Oh, god.
[Sniffs] Okay, pull it together, chanel. Okay. You need to be strong now. Okay.
[Exhales] Oh, my god, johnny.
Chanel: [Inhales sharply]
Johnny: Hey, you okay?
Chanel: Yeah. I’m just a nervous wreck because my mother– I just finished seeing her down at the police station.
Johnny: Yeah, I… heard she was arrested. I’m so sorry.
Chanel: It just doesn’t feel real, you know, that mama shot and killed someone– and not just anyone, lani’s biological father.
Johnny: How’s she doing?
Chanel: She’s putting on a brave face. You know, saying everything’s gonna be okay. But what if it’s not, g? What if they take her to prison? It’s not right. Mama is not some dangerous criminal. She’s a mother. My mother.
Jan: I was on the phone with a salesperson, about to order the most adorable baby outfit. I wanted to surprise you, so–
Shawn: Isn’t it a little early to be buying baby clothes?
Jan: It’s not for our baby, silly, it’s for ciara’S. I know you’d wanna give your sister something special to celebrate her son’s arrival. And since you have done so much for me, I thought I could do something for you. Aren’t you gonna thank me for being so thoughtful?
Shawn: Thanks. Yeah, you’re all heart.
Ej: Ah, if it isn’t our intrepid counselor.
Belle: Oh, someone’s in a good mood.
Chad: Johnny gave ej the green light to vote his shares.
Belle: Ah, and now ej has his own shares back as well.
Ej: Is that official?
Belle: Yes, sir. I filed the papers this morning. As for the shareholders’ meeting you’re planning to call today, I also have signed proxies from all the board members who can’t attend– theo, tony, kate.
Ej: And I have johnny’S.
Belle: And I reached out to you brother, peter blake, and he’s gonna join via video conference.
Ej: And not only intrepid, but also thorough. Thank you very much, belle.
Belle: Well, I just wanna do my part to make things right. You never should have been ousted from dimera.
Ej: Well, now I am ready to reclaim my rightful place at the helm of my father’s company with my brother by my side, of course. I must say, while I was languishing in prison, I never dreamed we’d find a way to put our differences aside.
Belle: Hmm. How did you manage that?
Ej: I apologized to chad for all the ways that I hurt him. I suggested that we put our animosity behind us, join forces, and take back what’s ours.
Belle: And you did that.
Ej: That’s right. There’s no more division, deception, or secrets. We’re a team now. A dynamic duo who will soon be running dimera together.
[Tense atmospheric music]
Gabi: Are you having second thoughts?
Jake: Look, you promised me if I came back, the relationship between us would be strictly platonic.
Jake: I don’t think you meant it.
Gabi: [Scoffs] Yes, jake, I meant it.
Jake: Then why did I just overhear you making a phone call to a restaurant making reservations for a very special occasion with flowers, champagne, candles?
Gabi: [Sighs] And you think that was for you?
Jake: Wasn’t it?
Jake: Come on, gabi. Just admit it.
Gabi: Admit what? The reservation wasn’t for you.
Jake: Who was it for, then?
Gabi: [Laughs] It was for him.
With depression, you just feel…blah. a picture of him? Ciara’s baby? I just–I wanna be able to picture the little cutie in his outfit. But if I’m asking too much, it’s okay.
Shawn: There he is right there.
Jan: Shawn, he’s beautiful.
Shawn: Baby bo.
Jan: Thank god he’s safe and everything turned out okay. I just had a thought. Maybe I could babysit for him.
Shawn: [Laughs] Not a chance in hell.
Jan: Yeah, of course not.
[Scoffs] You wouldn’t even entertain the idea. I mean, who would leave their child alone with a lunatic like jan spears? She might toss a radio in the bathtub and electrocute him. I get it. I get it, okay? It’s just really, really hurtful.
Belle: Well, I am just so glad that things are working out for the both of you.
Ej: I hope you know how grateful we are for your help.
Belle: Well, like I said, I just wanna make up for the damage I did.
Ej: It wasn’t you, belle.
Belle: I know. I know. I’m just–I just feel awful for what you’ve been through.
Ej: You’re not responsible. We now know that it wasn’t you who framed me. It was johnny. Of course, johnny doesn’t remember planting that evidence on chad’s computer. He doesn’t remember much about anything he did while he was possessed. But this morning, I spoke with him and like you, he’s still plagued with guilt. He–he feels terrible that I ended up in prison.
Chad: I gotta say something.
Gabi: Hey, I was just telling jake about our plans for tonight.
Shin: Welcome back. I told gabi she made a brilliant move when she rehired you. As you know, I’ve always been a fan.
Jake: Hmm. Of me or her?
Shin: Both. And congratulations on pinehurst.
Jake: Oh, the golf club?
Gabi: No, it’s a small architectural company we acquired recently.
Shin: An incredibly promising company I’ve had my eye on for months. Several of our competitors were circling, but… gabi closed the deal. She’s really on a roll. This dinner’s to celebrate our success.
Shin: Why don’t you join us?
Gabi: Oh, no. He probably has plans with his roommate. Plus, I was really looking forward to spending some time with you. Alone.
Johnny: It sounds like tr got exactly what he deserved. And obviously, I had no idea what kind of man he was when I got into business with him–what kind of horrible man he was.
Chanel: No one did. Mama finally saw his true colors, but– now I’m so scared of the price she might have to pay.
[Breathes sharply] And I’m also worried sick about horton.
Johnny: Have you–
[Clears throat] Have you seen her since?
Chanel: I thought it would be best if she had some time with henry and her dad first.
Chanel: God, she’s been through such a nightmare. Are you sure she’s really okay?
Johnny: Yeah. Yeah, she is. She doesn’t remember most of it, which is a blessing, believe me.
Chanel: You’ve been though a nightmare, too, with–
[Sniffs] I’m so sorry. But at least you saved her in the end.
Johnny: No. I didn’t save her. Tripp did.
Allie: I heard what you did for me. I don’t know how I’ll ever be able to thank you.
Tripp: You don’t have to.
Allie: Are you kidding? Tripp, you told satan to take you instead of me. You let the devil possess you. I mean, you threw yourself out a window.
Tripp: I had to stop him. Make sure he couldn’t hurt you again.
Allie: Tripp, you could have died. Actually, you did for a little while.
Tripp: Guess I’m a hard guy to kill.
Allie: [Sighs] I– I would never have forgiven myself if we’d lost you.
Tripp: You didn’T.
Allie: After everything I did to you– lying… cheating… breaking– breaking your heart… why would you sacrifice your life for mine?
Tripp: Because despite all of that.. I can’t deny what’s in my heart. I still love you, allie.
It’s started. Somewhere between a cuddle suspense, chad. What is it you need to say?
Chad: It’s just that… I think that we’ve all spent enough time focused on regrets. We need to look forward now. And, ej, my brother… I couldn’t be happier… that we’re doing it together.
Belle: Hear, hear.
Ej: Shall we get the ball rolling?
Chad: Yeah, I’ll call shin and let him know that we need to get the shareholders together today.
[Tense atmospheric music]
Gabi: Don’t you wanna enjoy a little one-on-one time tonight?
Shin: I do. And it’ll give us a chance to brainstorm about our next acquisition.
Gabi: Yeah, and enjoy some champagne. I can talk to you about the gabi chic summer line. My favorite piece is a little too sexy for the office, but I could show you for tonight.
Shin: Oh, excuse me. Hello?
Chad: Li, it’s chad dimera.
Shin: What can I do for you?
Chad: My brother ej and i are calling the shareholders together for a vote to remove gabi as ceo. Today.
Shin: I think that’s a big mistake. But I’m with gabi and jake now. I’ll let them know.
Chad: 4:00. See you then.
Gabi: What was that about?
Shin: Chad and ej are calling a shareholders’ meeting for today at 4:00.
Jake: What for?
Gabi: Well, to push me out, obviously. No, we can’t let them do this.
Shin: Don’t panic. You have me on your side. And jake, of course. I’m confident we’ll walk away victorious. I’ll see you at the meeting. And tonight, we’ll celebrate.
Gabi: I am so screwed.
Jan: The idea is not as crazy as you think.
Shawn: Look, jan, I’m gonna say it again. There is no way that my sister’s gonna feel comfortable leaving you alone with her son.
Jan: No, no. She doesn’t have to. You could be here with me. And you could do all the hands-on work and I’ll just be here to assist or whatever. Just tell ciara that she would be doing this for her future niece or nephew, so that when the baby is born, it’ll have two confident, capable parents. Will you ask her, please? Just, again, tell her that you’ll do all the work and I’ll just be here observing.
Shawn: Okay, fine. Yeah. Like, I suppose– yeah, I’ll ask.
Jan: Thank you.
Shawn: Okay, but don’t get your hopes up, ’cause I’m almost positive it’s gonna be a hard no.
Jan: Well, even so, I’m grateful that you’re willing to do this for me. So you’ll ask ciara now?
Shawn: Well, I was gonna go check on her and see how she’s doing, so… yes, I’ll ask her.
Jan: Shawn, you have no idea how much this means to me.
Chanel: Tripp risked his own life to save allie?
Johnny: Yeah, he– he jumped out of the loft window. Yeah.
Chanel: What? I can’t believe he did that after she cheated on him with me. They were supposed to get married, have a future together, and all of that was destroyed.
Johnny: Tripp said none of that mattered because of the way that he felt about her.
Chanel: I thought he hated allie. That he’d never forgive her.
Johnny: No, it’s got nothing to do with forgiveness. It’s about love. When you love somebody that much, you’ll do anything for them. I know how that feels.
Tripp: You might not believe that I still feel this way about you, given how hostile I’ve been. I mean, it’s hard to admit, even to myself. But my dad and kayla helped me see that my anger was just a way of hiding how hurt I was. And when I found out that you were possessed and… that your body had been violated by this evil being, it reminded me of–
Tripp: Yeah. I promised you I’d never let you get hurt like that again.
Allie: Tripp, you didn’t need to protect me. I never expected you to do that.
Tripp: I never expected that I would. When I heard that your life was in danger, how I could lose you forever… it made me realize that I… I still loved you.
Allie: But what you did, it was too much.
Tripp: No, it wasn’T. I wanted you to live. And for henry to have his mom. If there was anything, anything at all that I could do to make that happen, I was gonna do it no matter what it cost me.
Allie: Tripp, it almost cost you your life.
Tripp: I had no choice, allie. Because of how I feel about you. It’s okay. You don’t have to say anything.
Allie: Yes, I do. Because I need to tell you how I feel about you, tripp. Because I still love you too. The lows of bipolar depression how the votes are gonna go. So I’ll have the two of us, obviously, plus shin and stefano’s grandson steven hawk. He was with us last time.
Jake: All right. So that’s four we can count on.
Gabi: Yeah, and then ej, tony, and chad are against us, plus kate.
Jake: Thanks to me.
Gabi: Thanks to both of us.
Jake: All right. So let’s see. Last time they had theo’s proxy, right? And my brother peter’s vote. So we can probably count on them voting that way this time. And then johnny’s probably gonna vote with ej, right?
Gabi: Yeah, that’s seven against us. Not even close, okay? We should just concede.
Jake: No, no, no. The gabi hernandez I know would not give up that quickly.
Gabi: What am I supposed to do, just pull some votes out of my–
Jake: No, no, no. We’ll do what we did last time. We’ll make phone calls, see who we can flip, all right? Remember, they need a majority. A tie is still a win for us.
Gabi: All right, but I’m not calling kate because i canned her ass.
Jake: I’ll do it.
[Line ringing] Kate, hey, it’s jake. Listen, I don’t know if you heard, but I’m back to work at the company and we’re having a shareholders’ meet–
[Phone beeps] She hung up.
Gabi: Well, that’s a shock. Can we give up now?
Jake: Not a chance.
Ej: How are things going between you and shawn?
Belle: Well, I ran into him when they took ben and ciara’s baby to the hospital, so we went and checked on them together.
Belle: And it was really nice to see him hold his nephew for the first time. Kind of reminded me of when claire was small. We were kind of having a moment, and then jan called and ruined it. Ugh, and get this. She called me earlier too.
Belle: I don’t know. She said she had something she wanted to talk to me about, but she wouldn’t tell me over the phone, so…
Ej: Are you going to go see her?
Belle: Yeah, I think I’d rather ignore her.
Ej: Or you could take the opportunity to tell her to her face that she’s not going to ruin your marriage.
Chad: The meeting’s all set.
Belle: Huh. All right. Well, good luck, boys. Let me know how it goes.
[Tense acoustic music]
Chanel: I– I wanna go see how tripp is doing. You know, he and I got close while you–
Johnny: I know. I know.
Chanel: Okay. Well… I should head to the hospital.
Johnny: Look, the guy saved my sister’s life. I’d like to thank him for that. So maybe I could go with you?
Chanel: I’d like that.
Allie: You can’t be that surprised. I mean, even after everything blew up with us, I still wanted to marry you. To raise henry with you. After what you did for me, your determination to help me, the courage that it took for you to do what you did… I not only still love you, but I feel so grateful.
Tripp: What about chanel? I mean, after we broke up, you two got together. I mean, you became a couple.
Allie: And I still feel terrible that johnny told you before I got the chance to.
Tripp: I’m just glad you’re here now being honest with me about how you feel. But I want you to be honest about everything.
Tripp: So tell me… do you still have feelings for chanel?
You never know
Belle: All right, jan, I’m here. What do you want?
Jan: A less brusque greeting would be nice. But seeing as you’re such a busy lawyer, you probably don’t have time to ask how my pregnancy’s going.
Belle: That’s right.
Jan: Well, then I’ll get straight to the point. Could you clear out your home office?
Belle: Why would I do that?
Jan: Because I wanna turn it into a nursery for shawn’s and my baby.
Ej: We have a little time before the meeting. So… I would like to propose a toast. And to thank you.
Chad: For what?
Ej: Agreeing to be partners. As I said the other night… I know father would be proud to see his sons coming together.
To the dimera legacy, our family, and our future.
Jake: That’s great. Thanks, bro. Good talking to you. We got peter.
Gabi: What? He switched sides? Why?
Jake: Don’t know, don’t care. All I know now is it’s six to five. One more vote for us, it’s a tie.
Gabi: I think our best bet’s johnny.
Jake: I just got finished telling you he’s gonna vote with ej.
Gabi: Yeah, but I think I can get him to vote in another direction.
Jake: Work your magic.
Johnny: It’s gabi. Probably has something to do with dimera. I’m gonna take this. I’ll catch up to you.
[Phone beeps] Gabi.
Gabi: Johnny. Hi, handsome. How are you doing?
Johnny: Fine. What’s up?
Gabi: Oh, I was just calling to tell you I am looking forward to seeing you later at the meeting. You know, I wanted to thank you because I wouldn’t be where I am if it wasn’t for you. I mean, we work so well together, so in sync. We have the same vision, same goals.
Johnny: First of all, that wasn’t me. That was satan. And second, I’m not even gonna be at the meeting and my dad has my proxy, so I…can’t help you.
Gabi: Thanks for nothing.
Jake: All right. Forget that jerk. Let’s press on.
Gabi: That’s it, jake. It’s over. I’m out.
Tripp: Look, I’m not naive. I know it’s possible to love two people at the same time.
Tripp: You told me that you still love me. And I believe you. I just need to know if you love chanel too.
Chanel: Oh, my god, horton. Oh, I have been so worried about you. Oh, god. Are you really all right?
Allie: I’m fine. I’m fine.
Chanel: Oh, thank god. Oh, god.
Entresto is the number one heart failure brand Gabi.
Jake: You two don’t seriously think you’re gonna win this thing, do you?
Ej: [Chuckles] “This thing” is my family’s legacy, and what I seriously think is that my legitimate brother and I are going to swiftly and permanently take back control of dimera from an incompetent interloper.
Gabi: Well, if you’ll excuse me, I’m gonna lope over here and set up the video feed.
Shin: Greetings, all.
Chad: Shin, glad you could make it.
Shin: As you know, I’m not happy about this meeting. But you do have a quorum, so I would like to call this meeting of the dimera shareholders to order.
Who would like to speak first?
Ej: I will.
Shin: Chair recognizes ej dimera.
Ej: Thank you. My brother chad and I have one motion to bring before you today and that is to remove gabriella hernandez from her position as ceo.
Shin: Very well. I’ll read the proxy votes first.
Theo carver votes “aye.” Kate roberts, “aye.” Antony dimera, “aye.” John roman dimera, “aye.” That’s four votes in favor of removing ms. Hernandez from ceo.
Gabi: I have a proxy vote from steven hawk.
Shin: “Nay.” We will now hear from those present. Ej, you may start.
Shin: The vote now stands at six to remove, three to retain. Peter blake, you’re next. That’s another nay vote from peter.
Ej: You bloody traitor! Peter, what the hell– don’t–
[Tablet buzzes] He disconnected.
Chad: It’s fine. There’s no way they can win even with shin’s vote.
Ej: [Clears throat]
Shin: I vote nay. So the final tally is six aye five nay. The ayes have it. Ms. Hernandez will be removed as ceo.
Ej: Well done.
Shin: I’m very dismayed at the outcome, but now that all the votes are in… I will call this meeting to a close.
Jake: What the hell is that?
Shin: Someone else is dialing in to the meeting.
Belle: You cannot be serious.
Jan: Baby needs a place to sleep and your office is the best option.
Belle: All right. Jan, let me see how I can put this delicately. There is no way in hell that I am giving up my office. And this arrangement, you staying here, is temporary, because as soon as that baby is born, you’re going back to prison.
Jan: What about the baby? He or she will need a place to be regardless of where I am. Although, just a heads up, I plan to be right here, with shawn and our precious baby.
Chanel: Are you sure you’re okay?
Allie: I’m fine. What I wanna know is if you’re okay. I mean, johnny told me there’s something going on with your mom.
Chanel: Oh, there’s so much going on.
Allie: He also told me how bad I hurt you. I’m so sorry, dupree.
Chanel: That was not your fault, okay? All that matters is that you’re back.
Allie: I feel like there’s so much to say and hear and catch up on. We really need to talk.
Chanel: We do. Right now, I just wanna do this.
Johnny: Whoa, it’s a party. Hey, sis. I…didn’t know you were gonna be here.
Allie: Hey, johnny.
Johnny: Hey, tripp. How you feeling?
Tripp: Oh, not bad. What brings you by?
Johnny: Chanel and I just– we wanted to come by and see how you were feeling after that superman move you pulled.
Tripp: Yeah. Turns out my powers didn’t work so well.
Chanel: Oh, yes, they did. G told me you saved horton’s life. We could not be more grateful.
Johnny: Seriously. I mean, all of us, my whole family, we owe you. A lot. You’re– you’re a real hero.
Tripp: I don’t know about that.
Allie: I do.
Johnny: Well, we didn’t mean to interrupt you guys, so we will give you some time and check back in a little.
Tripp: Sounds good.
Chanel: We’ll talk.
Allie: For sure.
Johnny: All right. Well, feel good, guys. Feel good.
[Door clicks shut]
Allie: I know you’re supposed to rest. Do you want me to leave too?
Tripp: No. No, I’d really like it if you stayed. Like pulsing, electric shocks,
Allie: Is there something else you wanna talk about?
Tripp: I just wanna go back to what I asked you before. About whether you love chanel.
[Monitor beeping] I think I just got my answer.
Johnny: It’s been a wild ride, huh?
Chanel: I hope it’s over for good.
Chanel: Anyway, I should head back to the bakery. I’ll see you later, G.
Johnny: Chanel, wait. I– I know you have a ton going on right now, but there’s just something I wanna tell you.
Chanel: Go ahead.
Johnny: I just wanted to say that I’m–again, how sorry I am for everything that I put you through.
Chanel: It’s okay. I know it wasn’t your fault.
Johnny: You know, I haven’t stopped thinking about you. Not for one minute.
Chanel: We shouldn’t get into this–
Johnny: Look, I just want to remind you what I said to my family when we first got back to salem. After we got married. I said that I was totally committed to you, and that hasn’t changed. Chanel, I wanna be here for you. I wanna support you. I wanna help you through everything. I still love you.
Belle: You’re planning to be here. What does that even mean, jan? What, are you gonna break out of prison to come be with your baby?
Jan: Of course not. I meant I’ll probably be released early on good behavior. And I’m sure the judge will go easy on me, being a new mother.
Belle: Right. Right. And in this delusion of yours, you’re gonna come here?
Jan: As often as possible.
Belle: I see what you’re doing, jan. I know you’re trying to get under my skin and stir up more drama between shawn and me. But it’s not gonna work. You are not going to destroy my marriage.
Jan: Me? You’re the one who moved out.
Belle: Let me be very, very clear. Shawn and I love each other and we are committed to each other forever. He’s only letting you stay here because you guilted him into it.
Jan: Really? Is that why he went to ask ciara if we could babysit for little bo?
Belle: [Laughs] Oh, please. Shawn would never let you anywhere near his nephew.
Jan: Oh. He’s at his sister’s right now running the idea by her. Why don’t you call him if you don’t believe me?
Belle: You’re such a psycho.
Jan: Can we be civilized, please, and not resort to name-calling?
Belle: Okay, you know what? You think you’re gonna come here and steal my husband because you are a sick, twisted human being with a heart of stone.
Jan: Back off.
Belle: And your pathetic, insane plan is never going to work. Do you hear me? Never!
Shawn: Belle, what is going on?
Shin: Were you expecting anyone else to call in?
Jake: Maybe one of your sure things changed their mind.
Gabi: Let’s see.
Kristen: Hey, kids. You didn’t forget about me, did you?
