Update written by Joseph

Justin goes to see Paulina in the interrogation room. Paulina asks how it went in court. Justin responds that he’s sorry but they denied her bail again.

Eli visits Abe in the hospital. Eli reveals he’s been discharged and is just waiting on paper work, then Lani is picking him up. Abe notes that he shouldn’t be too far behind as he’s just waiting for Kayla to sign off on his discharge. Eli says that Lani mentioned that and brought clothes for him. Abe asks if he and Lani talked. Eli wants to wait until they are both discharged but Abe doesn’t want to wait. Abe asks if Paulina shot TR or not.

Lani sits in the town square, on the phone with Julie. Lani assures her it will be fine and says she is on her way to the hospital to pick up Eli. Lani promises to keep her posted and to have Eli call her. Lani thanks Julie for everything and hangs up. Lani then drops her phone and the sound startles her, causing her to have a flashback to shooting TR. Chanel approaches and asks if she’s okay.

Sarah sits in the Brady Pub. She gets a call from Xander and answers it. Xander is relieved that she answered. Xander offers to come to the Pub and says he needs to see her. Sarah says she only answered because he keeps calling and that has to stop. Xander argues that they have to talk. Sarah disagrees and says she has nothing to say to him. Sarah asks him to stop calling her and hangs up. Eric enters and asks if she’s sure that’s a good idea.

Paulina asks Justin what the hell happened since the whole point of the appeal was to set bail to get her out of here. Justin explains that the appeal was to determine if the decision to deny her bail was legally viable and it was. Paulina asks if it’s because she’s rich and they think she’s a flight risk. Justin states that he denied bail because she confessed to killing a man.

Eli tells Abe that they can talk about this later in private. Abe asks why he keeps trying to put him off. Abe reminds Eli that they both agreed that Lani could have something to do with this shooting. Abe asks if Eli talked to Lani. Eli confirms that he did. Abe demands to know what she said. Eli thinks back to Lani admitting that she shot TR. Eli then lies to Abe and tells him that Lani had nothing to do with it.

Lani tells Chanel that she’s fine. Chanel notes that she doesn’t look fine. Lani then complains that her mother is in jail while her husband and father are both in the hospital and her biological father was murdered. Lani then apologizes since Chanel is not the person that she should be dumping this on. Chanel tells her not to worry. Chanel notes that Lani didn’t look sad, mad, or overwhelmed, just lost. Chanel asks what she was thinking about. Lani responds that she was thinking about the shooting and watching TR die in front of her. Lani flashes back again and tells Chanel that she keeps hearing the last thing TR ever said. Chanel asks her what he said.

Rafe and Nicole lay in bed together and talk about when to tell Holly about their engagement. Nicole declares the time is right and she wants them to tell her together which Rafe calls really great. Rafe just doesn’t want Holly to think that he’s forcing his way in to her life. Nicole encourages that Holly wants him in her life. Nicole wants Holly to be part of a happy family and she wants that to start right away as they kiss.

Sarah tells Eric that she doesn’t want to talk about Xander. Sarah talks about not sleeping well. Eric talks about getting lost when everything blew up with he and Nicole until he found his way. Sarah tells Eric that she doesn’t really need a priest right now. Eric then reveals he’s not a priest anymore and jokes that they are a hell of a pair.

Paulina argues that she didn’t confess to anything and simply laid out the facts. Justin says that included shooting TR. Paulina complains that she’s being penalized for being honest. Justin complains that Paulina’s whole act might work great in real estate and sometimes in court, but trying to snow her own lawyer is stupid. Justin warns Paulina that her case isn’t hopeless, but it is serious, so she needs to level with him. Justin asks if Paulina was being honest when she confessed.

Eli claims to Abe that Lani didn’t shoot TR. Abe questions why Lani said that Paulina said she shot TR. Eli guesses it was a slip of the tongue since she was in shock. Abe states that he heard what he heard and Paulina said “what have you done”. Abe asks if Eli asked Lani what Paulina meant by that.

Lani informs Chanel that the last thing TR said to her was that he loved her. Chanel knows that’s a lot to deal with. Chanel asks how Lani is feeling about it. Lani calls it complicated. Chanel asks if she’s heard anything about Paulina as she’s so scared they might keep her in jail until her trial. Lani tells her that Justin is going to court this morning to appeal and see if he can get her released on bail. Chanel hopes it works since Paulina never did well in confined spaces. Chanel knows she has to be strong but cries that Paulina is the only parent she has left and she’s not ready to lose her. Lani then tells Chanel that there is something she has to tell her. Chanel asks Lani what it is, but Xander interrupts and says he was just about to come find Chanel at the Bakery. Chanel tells him that they are in the middle of something. Xander complains about Sarah hanging up on him. Chanel suggests he wasn’t getting the signal that she didn’t want to talk to him or he was interrupting. Xander agrees and says that’s why he needs Chanel to tell him what he has to do to get Sarah back.

Sarah asks Eric if had any luck with his Parish. Eric says no because he broke church protocol by performing exorcisms so he has to live with the consequences. Sarah argues that he was fighting the Devil and saving people. Sarah says they kicked him out of the priesthood for being too good of a priest. Eric says he took a vow of obedience. Sarah argues that he didn’t do anything wrong. Eric says she didn’t either but now they’re both back at square one. Sarah asks what he will do now.

Rafe and Nicole have waffles with Holly. Nicole tells Holly that they were waiting for the right time to talk to her about something. Nicole brings up her and Rafe being friends for a really long time. Nicole announces they have decided to get married and asks what Holly thinks about that. Rafe guesses it’s a surprise to her but Holly says it’s not. Holly says they are together all the time now and Nicole has been in a really good mood. Holly adds that she saw Nicole wearing her ring. Nicole asks if this makes her happy. Holly says it does as long as she can be their flower girl.

Eli tells Abe that he did ask Lani about Paulina saying “what have you done”. Abe questions what that could’ve meant except Lani shot TR. Eli claims that Lani doesn’t remember Paulina saying anything like that. Abe insists that he knows what he heard. Eli repeats that Lani doesn’t remember and says maybe Paulina said it to TR after what he did to Abe. Abe admit maybe it was but he feels like he heard Paulina say that much later, when Lani was already there.

Paulina asks if Justin wants to know if she was lying when she said she shot TR. Justin then tells her not to tell him because if he wants to get her confession thrown out, he needs every argument at his disposal and if he knows this is a fabrication then the ethics could get real murky. Justin says usually he’s pretty good at this but sometimes he has a client that has screwed things up before the lawyer shows up. Justin advises her to call a lawyer next time someone is shot to death in her apartment before she signs the statement, unless there’s a reason she doesn’t want her lawyer. Paulina asks why he says that. Justin brings up her statement and says he has questions about the accuracies. Justin goes over Paulina saying that she grabbed the gun from Lani and shot TR. Paulina insists that’s what happened. Justin then questions how she was able to get Lani’s gun out of it’s holster.

Abe swears when he heard Paulina say “what have you done”, he was coming to and Lani was in the room. Eli says there’s a reason they have kept Abe in the hospital this long. Abe asks if he’s saying he’s not in control. Eli says he is now, but that night, he was hit really hard and might not remember the timeline correctly. Eli questions who is a more reliable witness, someone with severe head trauma or someone without. Eli assures that he spoke to Lani and he’s confident on what really happened. Abe guesses it was Paulina then and they were wrong.

Paulina questions Justin not thinking she can pull a gun out of it’s holster. Justin argues that Paulina signed a statement, saying she took Lani’s gun and shot TR with it. Justin says he scanned the statement in five minutes, but right now there’s a whole time of assistant district attorneys going through her statement, so if she lied, it could be obstruction of justice and could have the whole statement thrown out which means the investigation goes back to the original suspects. Paulina asks if he found any discrepancy. Justin says he doesn’t know but something did catch his eye. Justin tells Paulina that a police officer’s weapon is secured in place with a snap, so Paulina would have to first unsnap it and then pull it out, but according to her statement, Lani didn’t notice her doing that. Paulina suggests that Lani came in with her gun drawn so maybe she forgot to snap it back in to place which means she could’ve done exactly what she said she did in her statement. Paulina asks Justin if there’s anything else.

Nicole and Rafe assure that Holly can be the flower girl so she asks when the wedding is. They say they haven’t talked about a date yet. Rafe jokes that they wanted to make sure Holly’s schedule was clear first. Holly thinks it should be soon and asks why wait around. Rafe agrees, so Nicole guesses they are getting married as soon as possible. Holly then asks to see the ring which Nicole shows her.

Chanel understands why Xander wants Sarah back, but she doesn’t understand what it has to do with her. Xander reminds Chanel that they were married after she tricked him in to it while he was drunk over losing Sarah. Lani asks what this has to do with Chanel. Xander says that she is a woman and he’s starting to realize he doesn’t know a lot about women. Xander says that Chanel got him to do what she wanted while he can’t get anyone to do what he wants unless he threatens them and he wouldn’t want to threaten Sarah. Xander adds that with Jack gone, he doesn’t have any friends, so he hoped maybe they were still kind of friends. Xander asks if Chanel can find it in her heart to help him figure out what to do.

Eric doesn’t know what he’s going to do next, so he has time to figure it out. Sarah reminds him there’s a village in Africa that would be happy to have him back. Eric tells her that he’s not going back as they were not very eager for his return after finding out members of his family were possessed by The Devil. Sarah says she’s sorry to hear that but Eric says it just means he gets to stick around for a little while. Sarah jokes that selfishly, she’s glad. Sarah adds that she should find somewhere else to stay, probably back to the Kiriakis Mansion. Eric suggests she think about going back to Xander.

Rafe tells Nicole that he has to get work and kisses her as he goes to get ready. Nicole tells Holly that she has to get ready for school. Holly tells Nicole that she’s glad she is getting married but asks if Eric is going to be sad.

Sarah reminds Eric that she doesn’t even want to talk about Xander, so she questions how she would go back to him. Eric says it’s because she loves him. Eric knows Xander hurt Sarah, but she got past it. Sarah admits that Xander said she forgave him, but she cannot figure out why. Eric acknowledges that Xander worked for it and says he still believes in forgiveness.

Xander asks if Chanel will help him. Lani says she has to go get Eli. Chanel reminds Lani that she had something to tell her. Lani just tells Chanel not to worry because Justin is a really good lawyer. Lani then walks away. Xander questions what that was all about. Chanel tells him it’s personal. Chanel gets that Xander is torn about what happened with Sarah and acknowledges that she’s a woman. Chanel recalls him saying before that Sarah said she wanted nothing to do with him on their wedding day and hooked up with Rex. Xander explains that it’s a long story but it turned out that it wasn’t Sarah that dumped him. Chanel asks if it was The Devil. Xander says it was Kristen DiMera in a Sarah mask. Chanel calls this town beyond weird. Xander asks if she can imagine getting dumped by someone, going through the pain of thinking they don’t want to be with you anymore, only to find out it wasn’t actually them who did it. Chanel responds that she actually can because the same thing happened to her, twice.

Paulina tells Justin that she told him what happened so now it’s his job to get them to drop the charges. Paulina orders him to tell the court whatever he has to, that she was an abused woman who had a delayed reaction to PTSD. Paulina asks him to just get her out of here. Justin responds that it will be a long, slow process. Paulina tells him to get started. Paulina then stops to thank him. Justin tells her not to expect miracles and not to make any more statements as he then exits the room.

Abe tells Eli that they will let this go. Eli says he already has. Abe assures that he didn’t mean to accuse Lani but he just wants to understand what happened. Abe guesses that what happened is that Paulina shot and killed TR, just like she said she did. Eli claims that’s right. Abe says that what gets him is that TR didn’t come here to find his family or make amends, but to make a buck and in his spare time, he screwed up the lives of so many people that he doesn’t even deserve to know. Abe adds that after all the pain and sorrow that TR put Paulina through, now she has to pay for what she did and that bastard deserved it. Eli comments that it sounds like Abe still really cares for Paulina. Abe admits that he told Julie that he loved Paulina and he was on his way to tell her. Eli asks why not tell her today. Eli encourages that there’s no time like the present. Abe jokes that he sounds like Julie. Eli asks what Abe is waiting for and tells him to get up, get dressed, and go tell Paulina.

Nicole asks why Holly thinks Eric would be sad. Holly points out that Nicole was married to Eric before and is now marrying Rafe. Nicole assures that Eric won’t be sad, but he will be happy for her, just like she is happy for him being a priest since that’s what makes him happy. Nicole tells Holly that she doesn’t have to worry about Eric, as even if they aren’t together, they are both really happy…

Eric informs Sarah that Xander did everything he could to prove himself to her and she took him back. Eric adds that they were planning on getting married and would’ve been if Kristen hadn’t intervened. Eric knows it will take Sarah time to get over what has happened to her, but maybe once she has, she could consider taking Xander back and forgiving him.

Chanel tells Xander that she doesn’t get why Xander needs to win Sarah back. Xander explains that Kristen also drugged Sarah and a side effect is that Sarah now hates him for something he did a long time ago that she had forgave him for, but because of the drug, she remembers hating him but not the forgiveness part, so he needs to find a way to get her to remember.

Lani brings Eli a wheelchair and informs him that Kayla has signed his release papers so he’s good to go. Eli tells her that he talked to Abe and convinced him that Paulina is the one who shot TR.

Abe goes to the interrogation room to see Paulina. Paulina is excited to see him out of the hospital. Abe informs her that he was just discharged. Paulina says she’s been so worried about him. Abe says he’s been worried about her too. Paulina can’t believe she almost left town with TR while Abe was bleeding on the floor of her apartment. Paulina asks what Abe was doing there in the first place. Abe reveals that he came to tell her how he feels about her. Paulina says he didn’t have to since he made it very clear how he felt about her when he said he could never have a relationship with her because he could never really trust her. Abe knows what he said but announces that he’s changed his mind. Paulina asks what he means. Abe informs her that the night before he came to her apartment, he went to pick up the twins from Julie’s and she gave him an earful. Abe brings up Julie and Paulina getting off to a rocky start, but Julie is definitely in her corner now. Paulina asks what she said. Abe jokes that she told him to get over himself and to tell her how he felt about her. Abe says that is why he came, to tell Paulina that he wants to be with her and he loves her. Abe declares that what happened that night doesn’t change how he feels about her. Paulina assures that she loves him too and hearing him say these things is like a dream come true, but she’s probably going to prison. Abe states if there’s any justice in this world, that won’t happen, but if it does, it doesn’t change anything. Abe jokes that he’s afraid she is stuck with him.

Lani tells Eli that she ran in to Chanel on the way here and she was so upset about Paulina and scared. Lani says it took everything in her not to tell her the truth that Paulina shot TR and she did. Eli knows Lani feels guilty and he feels bad for Chanel too, but Chanel is a grown woman. Eli says that Chanel has had her mother for his entire life while their kids are going to need their mother for the next 17 years so he will do whatever it takes to make sure she has her.

Chanel tells Xander that she feels for him but doesn’t think she is the best person to be handing out romantic advice right now while her mother is in prison and she’s in love with twins that she thought both dumped her but they hadn’t. Xander says that’s why she is the perfect person because they are in the same boat. Chanel guesses that all she can say is to hang in there. Xander questions that being it. Chanel says that’s all she’s got and wishes him luck as she then walks away. Xander complains that he could’ve come up with that himself. Xander turns around and runs in to Sarah, who says she was just coming to find him as she was wondering if they could talk alone.

Eric cleans up his table at the Pub as Nicole arrives. Nicole is glad he’s there as she thought he might have left. Nicole informs Eric that she has some news that she wants him to hear from her. Nicole announces that she and Rafe are engaged. Eric is surprised but says it’s great. Eric congratulates her and hugs her. Eric then informs her that he has some news of his own. Eric announces he might not be going back to Africa as he got kicked out of the priesthood which shocks Nicole.
