Sarah: When I said that we could go somewhere to talk, I didn’t think… see, this is weird. Why am I in a cemetery?

Xander: Well, because… look, after everything we’ve… after everything you’ve been through, and what I did to… all I did hurt you, it seems to me that here is the place we need to be.

[Dramatic music]

Sarah: Mickey. You brought me to see mickey.

Xander: Sarah… what we had, the love we shared, it… it all started with a lie.

Sarah: Xander–

Xander: No, hold on. I need to get all this out. I need to do it right this time. I was so stupid and selfish. I convinced myself that what I had done was… was what was good for me– what was best for me. I mean, I wasted so much time keeping up that lie, sarah. And then when we finally got you back, and you didn’t remember having lost your little girl, I did it again. Tried to keep you from the painful truth about her. I’m not gonna do that anymore. Never again, sarah. When I switched your baby with brady and kristen’s, I…

Sarah: [Sniffling]

Xander: I know. I stole your ability to mourn the loss of your child. And so I was hoping that maybe, now, being here and you– I’m conditioning you. Well, you might finally have the chance to… to grieve for her properly.

Sonny: I can’t believe– damn it! Do you know– I should have known this was coming. After the hatchet job he did on chad, I should’ve seen it coming.

Will: Well, at least we know why leo drugged you.

Leo: So little sonny boy now knows that I’ve still got it, and it was oh-so-fun reminding him. But then I thought to myself, “leo, you are handsome, talented, sexy, funny, young-ish.” Did I mention “handsome?” So I think to myself, “why should you enjoy the spoils of revenge all by your lonesome?” So what do you say? You and me, a little collab, destroying the life of another of my sworn nemeses?

Gwen: Matty, there is only one person that I have to settle a score with, and that is my dear baby sister, abigail.

Kayla: Well, I am happy to report that you are in perfect health.

Abigail: Oh, thanks. Well, I mean, I feel great. But it’s always a relief to hear.

Kayla: Yup. All right, let me just write your script to renew your birth control pills, and you can be on your way.

Abigail: Actually, I’m not sure I want that.

Kayla: Are you and chad thinking about having another baby?

Abigail: Well, I am.

Chad: Whoa. Oh, no. Okay, sorry. Didn’t mean to interrupt.

Belle: Oh, no, no. Chad, you’re not interrupting. Ej and I were just– we’re just talking.

Chad: Okay, great. Just–I’ma let you guys talk.

Belle: Wait, chad, no, I– will you let me explain?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Abigail: I haven’t said anything about it to chad yet. But we have always planned on having a really big family, and recently, I’ve just had that feeling–you know, the pull, you know, so…

Kayla: I know exactly the feeling, yes. Of course, I do.

Abigail: I’m sure you do, and so anyway, there was a point in our marriage– or several points, actually– when I didn’t feel that way, because chad and I, we just weren’t in a good place.

Kayla: But you’re in a good place now, I assume?

Abigail: We’re stronger than we have ever been, and…

[Sighs] I feel guilty to say this, but I’m just really grateful that my sister is in prison. You know? And I think that has A… little bit to do with why I’m feeling the pull again– because I know gwen is locked up. I know she can’t hurt us anymore.

Sonny: I feel so violated. I never wanna see those pictures ever again.

Will: Really? I was hoping we would have a couple of them framed.

Sonny: That’s not funny, will. Especially since all of salem is looking at them right now.

Will: Yeah, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t joke.

Sonny: No, no. You shouldn’t have.

Will: I’m sorry.

Sonny: It’s just, I can’t believe this is all still happening. The fact that leo put some sort of sedatives in my cookies and then drugged me, and then undressed me and climbed into bed with me, and now everyone thinks we had sex?

Will: [Scoffs] Are you sure that you didn’t?

Limu emu

Belle: Chad, there is just so much going on–

Chad: Belle, listen. You don’t have to. You don’t have to explain. Um, look, I know how upset you must be with shawn, and given that I’ve been in his shoes, I have to say that I do empathize with him a little bit. So I’m just gonna say this then. After everything that happened between gwen and me, abby and I, you know, we’ve found our way back to each other, and I–look, it’s none of my business, but I do think that– I do think that maybe you and shawn have a chance to do the same.

Ej: Chad, for the record, there is nothing going on between belle and me. I just kissed her. That’s all. She was feeling vulnerable, and… it was wrong of me to take advantage of that. I admit, I overstepped, and for that, I owe you an apology, belle.

Chad: Listen, no, you’re both consenting adults. You don’t have– neither of you have to explain anything to me. Okay? Just–I’ll leave you guys to it.

Belle: [Sighs] Thank you for taking responsibility for what chad just walked in on.

Ej: I take full responsibility, and I hope you accept my apology.

Belle: No, that–I meant I appreciate what you said to chad, but I mean, it’s not entirely true. Yes, you kissed me. But I kissed you back.

Ej: [Chuckles] Belle, what happened between us– it didn’t really mean anything.

Belle: You sure about that?

Sonny: I mean, I don’t remember anything after the cookies, but I mean, even the thought of the possibility that… leo and I– I can’t even say it.

Will: No, I–I’m sorry. I shouldn’t make you say that. I’m sorry for even suspecting that it was possible because you’d have no way of knowing, and–you know what? No. On second thought, it didn’t happen. It definitely didn’t happen.

Sonny: You don’t think so? You don’t think he’d go that far?

Will: No way. No. Well, first of all, leo’s made it clear that he doesn’t wanna sleep with you again, right? So he just wanted to humiliate you and trash your reputation. This is revenge for breaking up him and craig in black and white.

Sonny: So what do I do now?

Will: Well, leo might think this is all a game, and even though we are very confident that he didn’t take full advantage of you, he drugged you, he took off your clothes, and he took pictures of you without your consent. Those are criminal offenses. So what we do is we go to the police and we have his sorry ass arrested.

Sonny: Okay.

Leo: Come on, gwennie. I know you all too well, and I know that from the second those cuffs clicked onto your wrists, you’ve been thinking nonstop about how to smack that smug, little smile off of abigail’s face. She’s probably still smiling now, thinking about how she sabotaged your wedding–

Gwen: Oh, god, please. Will you just stop just twisting the knife?

[Sighs, sniffs] And don’t say his name. It just hurts me too much– especially being stuck in here with all these bloody maniacs. And the worst part is being…

[Sighs] Stuck in here, amongst the worst of them all… while the only man that I ever loved, the man I was supposed to marry, and… as stupid as it sounds, the man that I was supposed to live happily ever after with… is out there. He’s out there in the arms of his beloved sarah.

Sarah: [Sniffling] Mickey… my little angel. How could I ever forget you? Oh, god.


[Soft dramatic music]

Are you one of the millions of americans

[Soft dramatic music]

Sarah: [Sniffling] These must be from mom.

Xander: Every thursday without fail. Maggie always brings daffodils.

Sarah: And the roses? Those are–those are fresh.

Xander: Well, after you forgave me, we came here every day together– brought mickey fresh roses.

Sarah: After I was gone? Every day?

Xander: I loved her too, sarah. She was mine–at least, to me, she was. I helped you bring her into this world. I was the first person to hold her, to… to look in her eyes, and now that she’S… I just wanted little mackenzie, your little girl to… to know that I still love her– that we always will.

Sarah: [Crying]

Xander: That she hadn’t been forgotten.

Sarah: [Sniffles] Thank you.

[Exhales] Thank you for bringing my daughter roses… and for remembering her. I’m sure that wherever mickey is, she’S… she’s forgiven you. I’m sorry. I just still don’t think I ever will be able to.

[Somber music]

Leo: Come here. Believe me. I know what a catch your hunky scotsman was. I can see you now, standing above a subway grate, trying to hold that kilt down over those muscular thighs. What were we talking about?

Gwen: You are unbelievable. I can’t believe you. I’m standing here with my heart torn out, beating its last beat, and you’re fantasizing about my lost love.

Leo: Oh, gwennie, come on! Where is your sense of humor? I’m hurting too, remember? I lost craig.

Gwen: [Sighs]

Leo: But it’s like I’ve always said, “it is better to have loved and lost a–”

Gwen: Okay, all right. Just…stop. Stop.

Leo: There she is. Okay, now that you’re back, let’s get to it. I can’t wait to hear what naughty ideas you have, and I promise to be somewhat respectful of your torn-out heart’s final beats. But more importantly, I promise to help you execute your sweet, sweet revenge.

Gwen: Okay then, how about this? An oldie, but a goodie. We drug abigail and we whisk her off somewhere private, and we take compromising photos–

Leo: My love, my love, my love. [Laughs] I’m just gonna stop you to tell you that I truly do love and adore you, mostly because egotistical as this may sound, you remind me of myself.

Gwen: Back at you, matty.

Leo: I know we have lost our loves. We will always have each other– not to mention, drugging, abduction, and illicit photography.

Chad: I definitely wanna hear about your checkup, but I just walked in on something back home, and I gotta tell you all about it.

Abigail: Oh, idle gossip. My fave. What happened?

Chad: My brother, ej, kissed belle brady, is what happened.

Belle: Look, as chad said, we’re both adults, right? We’re both highly-educated and articulate, and we should be able to talk about this kind of stuff.

Ej: Okay. Would you like to take the lead then?

Belle: [Laughs] Okay, well, um… there’s no denying that the attraction, the sexual tension has been growing between us for a while. Am I wrong?

Ej: No, no. No, you’re not. In fact, that’s quite accurate. So I guess the question is… what do you think we should do about it? My asthma felt anything but normal.

Chad: Yo, ej and belle both downplayed the kiss, and belle definitely seemed flustered.

Abigail: Well, she’s been through a lot lately. She’s feeling pretty vulnerable, I imagine.

Chad: Obviously. But ej took full responsibility. He said he took advantage of the situation.

Abigail: Well, I guess they have been spending a lot of time together lately. Right? And–which makes sense, because she just represented ej when he was accused of kidnapping sami, and we both know that ej’s always been really opportunistic– never really had your scruples, and in fairness to him, he’s just probably hurt too. You know, he feels betrayed himself by sami. So, what, do you think that he’s trying to get belle into bed to soothe his bruised ego?

Chad: What I’m thinking– and this is just my gut feeling, having just walked in on them– I think that ej doesn’t wanna just get belle into bed. I think that ej might be actually really falling for her.

Belle: Um, well, I think that… maybe we should, um… I–you know, I just, uh…

Ej: [Laughs] So much for the two of us being articulate on this issue.

[Both laugh]

Belle: Okay, ej, listen. You know that I’ve been unfaithful to shawn in the past, and I’ve come a long way since then. And yes, shawn hurt me, and he continues to with the way he’s letting jan come between us, but I don’t wanna retaliate, and I just know I can’t live with the guilt of an affair.

Ej: You sound like a woman who is determined to save her marriage.

Belle: I’m just not ready to give up on what shawn and I have– or had. Not yet.

Ej: I care about you, belle. But just like you, my heart still belongs to someone else– someone who hurt me. As much as objectively I know that my marriage is over, samantha is… she’s still my samantha. And you and I, we shared one innocent kiss.

Belle: [Sighs]

Ej: Belle, I’m– I’m sorry about before– my taking advantage of the situation. I promise I will never do it again.

Gwen: So then you didn’t actually touch sonny kiriakis– not in that way?

Leo: Right. I did not debase myself, you’ll be relieved to hear.

Gwen: So relieved.

Leo: [Chuckles] But thanks to my preternatural cleverness and my excellent photographic skills, all of salem believes that sonny debased himself, and we get to watch the kiriakis castle crumble.

Shawn: Sonny, if you were drugged last night, you still have traces of that drug in your system.

Sonny: Well, I mean, I already scheduled an appointment to get a blood test.

Shawn: Good, good, good. Go down there and get it done. Bring me back the results. If we can prove that leo drugged you, I’ll arrest him, and I’ll happily throw away the key.

Sonny: Okay.

Xander: I get it. What I did was– it was unforgivable. I just thought maybe, you know, coming here and, well… thank you, sarah, for coming here with me. I’ll let you have a moment.

Sarah: [Smooches]

I haven’t been able to bring myself to come here.

Xander: I understand.

Sarah: You did this?

Xander: I hope you don’t mind.

Sarah: Xander.

Time. It’s life’s most precious commodity,

Belle: Well, thank you for letting me keep my stuff here– my boxed-up life.

Ej: Well, your boxed life can stay for as long as you need. Oh. It’s for you.

Belle: For me? Oh, it’s from jan. She said I forgot some of my things.

[Soft dramatic music]

Chad: I swear to you, abby, ej was– he was gentle and respectful.

[Laughs] I know it sounds crazy, but I’m worried that ej might be the one that gets hurt here. We both know how much belle loves shawn.

Abigail: Yeah. Yeah, but I don’t know. You know, he’s not only having a baby with another woman, he’s actually living with her.

Chad: Right. You know, I think it’s definitely gonna be difficult for belle and shawn to work things out. You know, but, I don’t know. Maybe it’s because, you know, you and i were in a similar situation, and here we are stronger than ever. I happen to think they will at some point.

Abigail: I love your optimism. I hope you’re right.

Chad: Enough about all that. How was the checkup with kayla?

Abigail: Oh, I’m fine. I am happy to report I’m the picture of health. However…

[Chuckles] On the topic of babies– although picturing jan having– jan spears having a baby isn’t exactly the perfect segue here, um…

Chad: What are you saying? Are you pregnant?

Abigail: No. [Laughs]

Chad: No?

Abigail: No.

Chad: [Laughs] Okay.

Abigail: But I’m thinking I might like to be.

Kayla: Oh, will, it is so good to see you.

Will: You too. I wish we were seeing each other under better circumstances, obviously.

Kayla: Yes, I do too. So, sonny, you suspect that someone drugged you?

Sonny: I don’t suspect it. I’m sure of it. Um, I had some cookies last night that I thought were from will and arianna. But it turns out they were from leo stark and he must’ve put something in it ’cause they knocked me right out.

Kayla: And how are you feeling now?

Sonny: A little woozy… and a lot angry.

Will: Yeah. We talked to shawn and we need proof that sonny was drugged in order to press charges.

Kayla: Okay. Well, I’d like to give you the once-over just to be safe, and then we’ll draw your blood and see what we find.

Sonny: Okay.

Gwen: So moving right along now, the way I see it, I lost– I lost you-know-who, and you lost craig. So let’s see. If we do the math correctly, carry the one, and two negatives equal a positive–yep. X equals abigail loses chad.

Leo: [Sighs] You are a math whiz. Okay, so to get this equation where we want it, we need somebody to seduce chaddy-blue-eyes, correct?

Gwen: I succeeded at that myself a while back, as you know. Spent weeks sowing the seeds of distrust between him and abigail, and… got chad to cheat on my sister and get me pregnant.

Leo: Which ended tragically for you, I know.

Gwen: It did, indeed. God knows. I mean, if I hadn’t have lost that baby, perhaps things would’ve turned out quite differently for me.

Sarah: [Sniffling] You did this… for me. You put my little girl’s name on a stone so that she wouldn’t be forgotten.

Xander: You remember?

Sarah: Just– it hit me like a flash. We were here before. Together.

And–and I forgave you… after you did this.


Xander: Looking back, that was… when we started to heal, and then, slowly… you let me back into your heart.

Sarah: I still…

Xander: Oh, sarah.

Sarah: [Sobbing]

Xander: Well after 8:00.

[Sighs] I guess sarah isn’t gonna show.

Sarah: Xander, I am not just some bimbo who drops everything when you get lonely. I actually have a full schedule today.

Xander: Don’t you think you should eat something then? You know, keep your strength up?

Sarah: Oh, well, that’s a three-course meal. I was just gonna get a yogurt out of a vending machine.

Xander: Well, here’s a better idea. Why don’t we skip straight to dessert?

I’m on my knees, unemployed, apparently unengaged. I’m not really in a cake-kind-of-place right now–

Sarah: Will you just open the damn box?

Xander: This is really weird.

Sarah: [Sighs] Well? Will you? I want–I want you to go back to the salem inn room, and I’m gonna see you tomorrow at the wedding, and every day for the rest of my life.

Xander: Hm, you’re having your bachelorette party, aren’t you? Male strippers?

Sarah: Mm-hmm. No, I am not having a bachelorette party. I don’t have a maid of honor,and that’s who plans all that.

Xander: I should work on that too.

Sarah: Your maid of honor? You should. Go find her. Give me a kiss first.

[Both laugh]

Xander: I can’t wait to come back here tomorrow and see you in that dress, right before I make you my wife.

Sarah: [Crying]

Xander: Sarah, what is it?

Sarah: I remember. I remember everything. Psoriatic arthritis, made my joints stiff,

Abigail: [Sighs] I’m sorry to just throw that at you. I know we haven’t really talked about having kids for a long time now. I know we’ve just been through so much recently. I really, really– I don’t want you to think for a second that I’m not completely happy with my life right now. My life with you and thomas and charlotte– I am the luckiest person in the world.

Chad: No.

Abigail: No. No, like, no, you don’t–you don’t want me to be pregnant?

Chad: No. I am the luckiest person in the entire world, and nothing would make me happier than to make another baby with you.

Abigail: [Chuckles]


Gwen: You know, the thing is, is I don’t think chad will really stray again– not after everything I put them through. It pains me to say this, but he and abigail seem to be stronger now than ever.

Leo: Boo. Well, if he won’t cheat, and she won’t cheat…

Gwen: Yeah. If we really want to punish abigail… we’re gonna have to take this plan to the next level.

Leo: Wait, are– are you suggesting we…

[Gags] You know?

Gwen: You think I’m capable of murder?

Leo: Well, you tell me, gwendolyn borden. You have been evasive and even been coy when it comes to telling me what really went down with old lady horton.

[Ominous music]

Gwen: You know, you’re right. I haven’t really been very straightforward with you– or with anyone, for that matter.

Leo: Well, dish, dish, dish, my love. You know your secret is safe with me.

Kayla: Okay, well, I am happy to report that your vitals are really in good shape.

Sonny: Okay.

Will: Oh, that’s good news, at least.

Sonny: Yeah, I mean, I feel fine now.

Kayla: Well, I think whatever leo gave you was just some kind of sedative, the effects of which have obviously worn off. Um, but I want to get you some answers and some proof, so I will get this sample to the lab and get ’em to rush on it.

Will: Okay. Hey, we are gonna make leo pay for what he did to you.

Belle: These things aren’t even from my office. They’re from shawn’s and my bedroom. So I guess jan has designs on taking over that room too.

Ej: I’m so sorry, belle.

Belle: You know, we were really happy then. Seems like a lifetime ago.

Ej: Belle–

Belle: No, thank you. You know what? I know what I need to do.

I was on an antidepressant,

Will: Hey. I’m so sorry this happened to you, sonny.

Sonny: No. Leo stark’s the one who’ll be sorry. Once we get those test results back, we’ll send him to a cold, lonely cell to rot… exactly where he belongs.

Gwen: After what laura horton did to me… she got what she deserved.

Leo: So does that mean that you did kill the old lady?

Gwen: That’s between me and her– maybe someday between me and abigail.

Leo: Okay, you have it your way, but you know what? I think it’s best we take murder off the table, given that we are both essentially decent, good-hearted people, yes? But still, there has to be some way to get back at that phony little actress for what she did to me.

Gwen: Mm, I assume we’re talking about abigail, yes? And if so, then I am sure that there is.

Leo: So does this mean you’re gonna help me figure something out?

Gwen: I’ll think about it.

Abigail: Oh, my god!

[Sighs] I can’t wait to go home and start planning for a new baby.

Chad: Well, there is no sense in planning… until we’ve put the work in.

Abigail: Uh-huh. Well, I say… lead the way, husband.

Chad: Oh.

Abigail: [Chuckles]


Sarah: Something in me just wouldn’t let me remember everything that happened before. You know, everything that led up to me losing my baby.

Xander: Well, it makes sense. You were protecting yourself from the pain.

Sarah: Yeah. I guess that’s what it is. But it also made me forget all the good memories too. You know, when I was happy… with you.

Xander: You really remember it all?

Sarah: I do. And the memory of the last time that we made love is coming back right now. Do you remember?

Xander: Oh, I could never forget.

[Sensual music]

[Both chuckling]

[Soft dramatic music]

Belle: You need to look at these.

Shawn: What are they?

Belle: Uh, legal papers.

Shawn: Oh, god, belle. Please don’t tell me you’re petitioning the courts to keep jan away from her baby.

Belle: No, this is not about you and jan. This is about you and me.

Shawn: Oh, my god. Are you divorcing me?
