Ben: Nice work. He’s sound asleep.

Clyde: Yeah. I wish I could stick around till he wakes up, but grandpa has got to get to work.

Ben: You are really good with him, grandpa.

Clyde: Pretty surprising, huh? Yeah, I just stand back and watch you and ciara. Learned from the best. But, you know, being around baby bo so much, seeing how much he needs both his parents makes me think of abigail dimera’s children losing their mom.

Ben: Those poor kids.

Clyde: Yeah. I mean, it’s a tragedy for the whole family, but for those kids. Well, I gotta go.

Ben: I’ll see you, pop.

[Soft dramatic music]

Lucas: Oh, what the hell? What the hell did I do last night?

Brady: Lucas.

Lucas: Hey, what’s going on?

Brady: You got a minute to talk?

Lucas: About what?

>>Brady: About falling off the wagon.

Lucas: What are you talking about, brady? I was in a meeting this morning. I’m 100% sober.

Brady: Why do you look so guilty then?

Ej: Chad? Did you sleep down here?

Chad: I didn’t sleep.

Ej: Well maybe you could try now.

Chad: No.

Ej: Come on, I’ll take you upstairs.

Chad: Ej, stop. I tried. Every time I got to the doorway and looked inside, I saw abigail. The way that I found her slipping away from me.

Belle: Thomas, I can’t believe you won again.

[Person knocking]

Charlotte: Mommy, mommy.

Belle: Chloe, hi.

Chloe: Hi.

Belle: Uh, come in. Charlotte, thomas, you remember my friend miss chloe, right?

Thomas: We thought it was our mom.

Jan: Our baby is the smallest one in the nicu by far.

Shawn: Yeah, but he’s doing really well, and he’S…

Jan: And he started crying.

Shawn: He put on weight.

Jan: And he, he… I couldn’t even comfort him. I just wanted to take his little hand so that he knew I was there.

Shawn: Hey, he knows, jan. All right, he knows.

[Phone beeps]

Jan: [Sobs softly] Who’s that?

Shawn: It’s nobody.

Jan: Well your whole face just changed. Who was it?

Shawn: It’s the warden. He’s asking when I’m gonna bring you back to prison.

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

[Soft orchestration]

Belle: Why don’t you two run into the kitchen and I think my dad is about to pull some chocolate chip cookies out of the oven.

Thomas: Come on, charlotte, let’s go.

[Soft dramatic music]

Chloe: They still don’t know about their mom?

Ciara: Off to dreamland.

Ben, what’s wrong?

Ben: Just thinking about abigail. Just how sad it is that she’s really gone, especially for her kids.

Ciara: Yeah. It’s–it’s really heartbreaking to think about thomas and charlotte growing up without a mother.

Ben: I tried to do that. I tried to take abigail away from her family.

Ciara: No. Ben, that was a long time ago. You were a different person back then. You’ve changed. You’re better now.

Ben: Yeah, well not a day goes by that I don’t think about all the people that I hurt.

Ciara: Yeah, but you’re with me now and our son, and everything’s gonna be okay.

Ben: Not for chad. His whole world just fell apart.

Ej: Harold told me you sent the staff away.

Chad: Yeah, there’s no reason for them to be here.

Ej: [Sighs] Chad, I don’t think it’s a good idea for you to be all alone in this house.

Chad: Well, guess what, ej, I’m alone.

Ej: That’s not true.

Chad: Really? Abby’s gone. She’s not coming back. Some evil son of a bitch decided to take her away from me.

[Dramatic music]

Leo: I can’t get caught holding that jewelry. I’ve gotta find someone to take it off my hands.

>>Lucas: Look, man, I’ve got nothing to feel guilty about, okay?

Brady: You–you walked out of the meeting this morning.

Lucas: You were there?

Brady: You looked right at me.

Lucas: Sorry. It didn’t register, okay?

Brady: Lucas, come on, man. We’ve been to dozens of these meetings. You saw that I was there, and you left.

Lucas: Listen to me, I didn’t see you, okay? And I had somewhere else more important I had to be.

Brady: Really? Where was that?

Lucas: Not that it’s any of your business, but I’ll tell you, I had to go pick sami up at the airport. She got in from italy this morning, and I checked on her flight, and it was cancelled, so I came back. Any more questions, detective brady?

Brady: Just one. What are you not telling me?

From prom dresses

[Upbeat rock music]

Clyde: Oh, relax, friend. I was just admiring your money clip. I’m not looking to rob you.

Leo: You sure about that? What you charge for a bowl of chowder here is criminal.

Clyde: It looks like you can afford it. If I’m not mistaken, that clip is solid platinum and gold. It’s a handsome piece.

Leo: I could be persuaded to part with it. Make me an offer.

Clyde: [Chuckles] No, thanks.

Leo: Just between us, I do have some other items for sale.

Clyde: Is that what you are, a salesman?

Leo: No. My dear old aunt eloise recently passed away. I’m the executor of her estate.

Clyde: So sorry for your loss.

Leo: Thank you. We were very close, aunt eloise and I. And as much as it pains me to part with her prized belongings, it’s what she wanted. She told me. She said that when the time came, I had to set sentimentality aside and focus on finding quality people who were willing to pay a fair price.

Clyde: So you’re liquidating her assets?

Leo: Specifically some jewelry. Do you like jewelry?

Clyde: I’d have to see it.

Leo: Not here. The park, ten minutes?

Clyde: Sounds like a plan.

Lucas: Look, brady, I’m just trying to sit here and enjoy my coffee in some peace, all right?

Brady: Sorry. I’m not trying to pry into your personal business, lucas. I was genuinely worried when you walked out of that meeting, all right. To be honest with you, you don’t look too good, man.

Lucas: Thank a lot, I appreciate it.

Brady: I would hate to think that you skipped out on a meeting that you may have needed because of me.

Lucas: Look, you’re right, okay? I went on a bender. It was one night, one night. That’s it.

Brady: Did it have anything to do with abigail?

Chloe: I came here to find brady. I just assumed he was here. Belle, I’m so sorry. I should’ve called first.

Belle: Oh, no, no, no, don’t be, listen, the kids are with my dad, let’s sit.

Chloe: Okay. Wow, those, those poor kids.

Belle: I know, I know. I’ve been trying to hold it together, but you just look in their sweet little faces and you know what’s coming, just…

Chloe: And speaking of kids, I, I heard that jan had the baby.

Belle: Shawn’s baby? Yeah.

Chloe: I’m so sorry that I wasn’t here for you to support you.

Belle: It’s okay. Actually I had a big broad shoulder to cry on. After the baby was born, I went to ej’S.

Chloe: Really? You stayed there?

Belle: Mh-hmm. Yeah.

Chloe: And?

Belle: And it was very comforting.

Chloe: Oh, my god, you slept together? No I’m sorry, it’s none of my business.

Belle: No, it’s fine, it’s fine, but no, we actually didn’T. But we came close.

Ej: I, um–I stayed at john and marlena’s last night. Belle was there.

Chad: How are the kids?

Ej: Fine. Fine. We kept them occupied. But chad, at some point soon…

Chad: Yeah. I know. I know.

Ej: They’ve been away from home for two nights already.

Chad: Ej, I said that I know! You said that they were fine.

Ej: Yes, but they’re asking for their father.

Chad: Well, I can’t really see them right now like this. Or I should tell them that I’m–I’m sick or that I’m slammed at work. You think you could do that for me?

Ej: Yes, of course. But they’re asking for their mother too.

[Soft dramatic music]

Ben: When I think how close I came to being where chad is right now… I just wish I could tell him how sorry I am.

Ciara: What do you have going on this afternoon?

Ben: Not much, babe.

Ciara: Okay. Well, I am going to the hospital to meet our new nephew. Would you like to come with me?

Ben: I would love that.

Jan: You can’t let them do this. I haven’t even held our son.

Shawn: Look jan, I don’t think the warden is gonna see that as a good enough reason for you just to not go back to prison.

Jan: Tell him that our baby needs my milk.

Shawn: But jan…

Jan: Premature babies are at a far greater risk of infection. Nothing compares to breast milk for strengthening our son’s immune system.

Shawn: Okay, look, listen, we’re gonna figure it out.

Jan: How? Do you expect me to pump in that dirty, disgusting hell hole? And what, you’re just gonna– you’re gonna bring the bottles back and forth every day? That’s ludicrous. I need to be here. Our son, he needs me here. And I need you to make that happen right now.

When you really need to sleep.

Lucas: Why would my drinking have anything to do with abigail?

Brady: Lucas, your niece whom you loved very dearly was brutally murdered. I wouldn’t blame you if you wanted to numb the pain, a little bit of that. I mean, I spoke to jennifer, you understand, she is devastated. I’m worried about her having a slip up. Are you kidding me? To lose your child like that suddenly and so horrifically and violently I mean, my god…

Lucas: You’re right, okay, you’re right. This is about abigail.

Chad: I’m sorry for lashing out.

Ej: You don’t have to apologize.

Chad: I know that I have to do this, but I have no idea how I’m going to. How do you tell your children that they’re never gonna see their mother again?

[Soft dramatic music]

Abigail was reading… “the hobbit” to thomas at bedtime. She had funny voices for each of their characters.

[Chuckles] Thomas just couldn’t get enough of it. And then charlotte is just… she’s a daredevil all of a sudden. And last week, she wanted to– she wanted to climb the tree outside of her window. You know, the big one? You know which one I’m talking about?

Ej: Yeah, sure.

Chad: So we took her out there and abby boosted her up thinking that she would get half way up and then wanna stop. No, I mean, she climbed almost to the top of it. And then abby, you know, kept telling her to come down…

[Chuckles] And she refused. Dared her mom to come up and get her.

Ej: [Laughs]

Chad: And abby did. She did even though she was absolutely terrified of heights.

They were so happy together. They were in heaven.

Ej: You’re not alone. You have your family.

Chad: [Gasps] I can’T. I can’t do this. I can’t do this without her. I…

Ej: I know it seems impossible right now, but you will find the strength to go on. You’ll finish that book with thomas. You’ll climb trees with charlotte. And everyone who loves you will help and support you, but you’re their father, chad, and they need you now more than ever, okay?

Chad: [Sobbing]

Belle: Well, as you know, ej has been really supportive through this whole nightmare with jan, and he knew I went to the hospital when jan was in labor, and came to check on me, and then after the baby was born, I asked him to get me the hell out of there.

Chloe: I don’t blame you.

Belle: So we went to dinner and had a couple of bottles of wine and ended up back at the mansion, and we were almost at the point of no return when we heard chad screaming for help.

Chloe: And if that hadn’t happened…

Belle: Oh, well, we’d have ended up in bed together. No question.

Chloe: So does that mean that you and shawn are over?

Jan: So?

Shawn: So I spoke with kayla, and she agrees. She agrees you should stay here with the baby, but just, you know, for a little while longer. So she’s gonna call the warden right now.

Jan: Oh, my god, shawn, thank you. Thank you so much.

>>Ciara: Hey, big bro.

[Chuckles] Centrum multigummies aren’t just great tasting…

Shawn: Sis. Ben.

Ben: Hey.

Ciara: Hi. What’s–what’s going on here?

Jan: Just got the most amazing news. I don’t have to go back to statesville.

Shawn: She doesn’t have to go back right away.

Ciara: And why is that?

Shawn: Well, the doctors feel that it would be best for the baby if she stays here for a little while longer.

Jan: Being a new mother yourself, you know how much a child needs its mother, especially in the beginning. I haven’t even gotten to hold our baby yet. I can’t even touch him.

Ciara: That–it must be really hard.

Jan: It’s torture. If I wanna see him, I have to walk down the hall and look at him in a glass box. That’s the closest I can get to our son, but yours is right there. So if it’s not too much trouble, maybe–maybe I can hold him?

[Soft dramatic music]

Belle: So jan is living in my house, and she just turned my office into a nursery, and my mother has just signed on to be her therapist.

Chloe: You’re kidding.

Belle: Oh, no, no she’s even making house calls because, you know, jan has an ankle bracelet. So I just couldn’t take it anymore. No, I had to create some distance.

Chloe: I’m so sorry, but do you see where this is going at all or?

Belle: Honestly, I really don’t know. So much has happened so fast, and I’m just feeling really just torn. You know, obviously, I still love shawn, but I just hate that he’s let this conniving, manipulative lunatic just take over.

Chloe: How can he not see how wrong this is and how incredibly hurtful? Jan has been trying to come between you guys for years.

Belle: Well, looks like she’s finally succeeded.

Chloe: So does that mean that you’re moving on with ej dimera?

[Door clicks]

Lucas: What happened to abigail was horrible. Ever since I found out yesterday, I can’t stop thinking about the terrifying possibility that maybe I…

Brady: You what?

Lucas: Maybe I won’t be able to help my sister. I mean, I saw her yesterday, and I tried to comfort her, but I don’t know, man. I don’t know if she’s ever gonna recover from this.

Brady: Lucas, lucas, she will be fine, all right? She’s tough. She’s strong. She has people around her to support her.

Lucas: I know you’re right, you’re right. I mean, I’ve been in the same hell that she and jack are in now with will–you know, will, he was a miracle, will came back to us, but abigail’s not coming back to us, not after what that monster did to her, god knows what reason.

Brady: The cops think it could’ve been a robbery gone wrong.

Lucas: A robbery?

Brady: It was in the paper this morning. They found some jewelry and some cash that was taken from the house. The cops think if they can find the jewelry, they’ll find the person who killed abigail.

Leo: Right on time, mr… I didn’t catch your name. Hey well for starters we… somebody’s a little grabby. That’s okay. I don’t mind a man who’s eager. You see anything you like?

Clyde: This stuff is hot, isn’t it? My asthma felt anything but normal.

Ciara: You want to hold my son?

Jan: The whole supervised babysitting idea never happened, so I thought it would be good practice for when I get to hold my own son. What do you think?

Ben: Well, that is up to ciara.

Shawn: I’m with ben, sis, it’s up to you.

Ciara: Sure. Yeah, you, you can hold him.

[Soft dramatic music]

All right, here we go.

Jan: Wow.

Ciara: Make sure you support his head.

Jan: He’s precious. Oh, my gosh.

Ciara: Just like that. That’s perfect.

Jan: Hi, little bo. Hi. I’m your auntie jan. I can’t wait for you to meet your little cousin. You guys are gonna grow up together. You’re gonna be best friends. Ciara’s little bo and my little shawn.

Ciara: I’m sorry, you named your baby shawn?

Chloe: Chad, I am so sorry about abigail. She was a really wonderful woman. I’m praying for you and your family.

Chad: Thank you.

Belle: Chloe just stopped by to see if brady– we were just chatting. The kids are in the kitchen with my dad having cookies.

Chloe: I should probably get going.

Belle: Sure. I’ll walk you out.

Chloe: Please give jack and jennifer my love.

So, you and ej, that’s quite some chemistry.

Belle: We didn’t even say a word to each other.

Chloe: Yeah, and i could still feel the heat between you two. Just be careful not to get burned.

Belle: Oh, speaking of, ej and I ran into your mom the other night on a date with clyde weston. Did you know that they were dating?

Chloe: Yeah, and I am not happy about it.

Belle: Everyone said that you were shot by a mugger in the park. You’re saying clyde did it?

Ej: He didn’t pull the trigger. He lured me to the park, threatened me. When things became heated, his man shot me, and then they left me there to die.

Belle: I was at statesville a lot when ej was there, and I can tell you clyde is exactly who he’s always been. I mean it was a huge mistake to let him out on parole.

Chloe: But there’s nothing we can do about that, right?

Belle: Well, no, but what we can do is whatever it takes to convince nancy to break it off with him. Chloe, I’m telling you, clyde weston is just as dangerous as he’s always been.

Leo: Hot? I don’t know what you mean. Now, if you are talking about yours truly…

Clyde: Hey, cut the crap. You didn’t get this from some dying old lady. You stole it.

Leo: Sir, you offend me and aunt eloise. God rest her soul. Wait! You’re right. This stuff is, as you say, “hot.” I’m looking to unload it as quick as possible.

Clyde: Well, I just might be able to help you with that.

Lucas: A robbery? So it’s possible that abigail didn’t know this person, that it wasn’t personal at all.

Brady: It’s possible. It’s possible that the things that were taken and the murder are completely unrelated. But either way, I know– I mean, rafe is gonna be working around the clock to figure out who did this.

Lucas: Yeah, yeah. I know.

Brady: And lucas, I know you wanna be strong for your sister, but you’re obviously hurting as well. If you feel that urge to pick up that bottle again, man, I just…

Lucas: I won’T. I won’t do it.

Brady: Just know that I’m here for you, okay? If there anything you wanna get something off your chest, whatever you say to me will stay between us, okay?

Lucas: Thanks… but there’s nothing more to tell. I just drank one time, you know, and I’m gonna regret it for the rest of my life.

Belle: Chad, I’m so sorry. We all loved abigail so much.

Chad: Thank you. Thank you for taking such good care of my kids.

Belle: Yeah, of course. Anything you need, we’re here. Is there anything that we can do for you now?

Chad: Yeah, can you go get my children for me? It’s time for me to tell them. Lemons.

[Soft dramatic music]

Brady: It was in the paper this morning. They found some jewelry and some cash that was taken from the house. The cops think if they can find the jewelry, they’ll find the person who killed abigail.

[Eerie music]

Lucas: I don’t remember anything from that night. Is it possible that I took abigail’s jewelry? If I did–if I did, maybe I stashed it in here.

Leo: You can help me with the jewelry?

Clyde: Well, I’m on parole, and i need to keep my nose clean, bt I do have friends who deal in this kind of thing all the time. I can get you fifty cents on the dollar for all this stuff no questions asked.

Leo: Discretion, that’s key. Because I, like you, need to keep my nose clean.

Clyde: But I don’t work for free.

Leo: No, of course not. You’ll get a cut.

Clyde: I’ll get one third of your cut, and that’s non-negotiable. If you don’t like it, you can go try to lowball somebody else.

Leo: One third it is.

Clyde: I need to hold on to these, give it to my friends so they can appraise it, but I do get the feeling you’d rather me have it anyway, right?

Leo: Uh, I suppose that would be best. I can trust you to hold up your end of the deal and not, say, disappear without a trace? You did mention that you were on parole. If you were to take off, I’d have to tell the police my version of what happened and, well, that could get messy.

Clyde: Are you threatening me?

Leo: No. No. I just wanna know when I’m gonna get my money.

Clyde: Check back in a couple of days. You know where to find me.

Brady: Hi.

Chloe: Hi.

Brady: Welcome back.

Chloe: Thanks. I missed you.

Brady: I missed you too. Did you come from my dad and marlena’s?

Chloe: Yeah, I just assumed that you were there, but when I walked in, I saw belle playing with charlotte and thomas. They don’t know about their mom yet.

Brady: Oh, man.

Chloe: Yeah. I was leaving. Chad showed up. I just pray that he finds the strength to be able to tell his kids.

[Soft dramatic music]

Belle: Look who’s here. Go.

Charlotte: Daddy.

Chad: Hey, hey. Oh, I missed you guys so much.

Thomas: We missed you.

Chad: Yeah? Hey, hi. How about the three of us spend some time together right now?

Thomas: Are you and mommy still taking us to boston?

Chad: You wanna go– go to fenway park? Sit on top of the green monster? Maybe catch a home run ball?

Thomas: Yeah.

Chad: Yeah? How does that sound?

Charlotte: Good.

Chad: Okay. Well, we’re definitely gonna do that at some point, okay? I promise, but right now, we need to stay here in salem.

Ej: Would you like to get some air? I’d like to stay close in case chad needs me, but perhaps we could take a walk in the park?

Belle: You know, I’d love to, but I actually think I’m gonna to the hospital and see my mom. See if she can refer a counselor for the kids in case they need it–not in case they need it, of course, they’re gonna need it.

Ej: That’s very thoughtful of you.

Belle: Well, we’re in this together.

Ej: Yes, yes, we are.

Shawn: This is the first I’m hearing about a name for the baby.

Jan: I think it suits our son perfectly. He’s handsome, just like his daddy, and for his middle name, I want him to have a good christian name, and what’s more christian than christian?

Shawn: So we’re going with shawn christian.

Jan: Brady. I think he should have your family name. God knows, there’s no one in my family worth honoring so… is that okay?

Shawn: Yeah. Yeah, sure, that’s fine.

Moderate to severe eczema

Ciara: [Sighs] Well, I’m sorry, ben. That visit was supposed to lift your spirits, and that was just weird.

Ben: Very weird.

Ciara: Very weird.

Ben: But at least we know our nephew’s doing well.

Ciara: Yes, yes, I agree. I just–I still cannot believe that jan spears is the mother. Speaking of mothers, my mother has been asking me to give her an update so I really should…

[Phone ringing] Oh my god, it’s her. Hi, mom. Yeah. I was actually just about to call you to tell you about your new grandson, shawn christian brady.

Ben: [Chuckles]

Jan: Can I see those photos that you took of shawn earlier?

Shawn: Yeah. Yeah. Ah, there they are.

Jan: Oh, my precious little angel. I’m so grateful to you for making it possible that I can stay here with him. I’d be even more grateful if you could run out and get me a chili cheeseburger with fries. I don’t know if I could survive another hospital lunch.

Shawn: Yeah, okay. No onion, extra pickle, right? Yeah, okay. I’ll bring it to you.

[Soft dramatic music]

Chad: So you guys know how much I love you, right? And that I’ll always be with you, no matter what? You know that? You know that? I need you– I need you to remember that. There’s something that I have to tell you about mommy.

Chloe: I can’t stop thinking about those kids.

Brady: Oh, I– I’ve had some conversations with rachel about her mom, but this.

Chloe: I know. It’s bad enough if it’s an accident or an illness or something, but what kind of a savage would brutally murder the mother of two young children?

Brady: Someone who has no heart. The scum of the earth. The lowest of the low.

[Ominous music]

Ej: Looks like someone left you holding the bag.

Lucas: The jewelry isn’t here. So what? So I still could’ve taken the jewelry and stashed it somewhere else. I could still be the one who killed abigail.

Sami: Lucas?
