    “The Hollywood Mogul Con” – In 2018, Zach Horowitz, a 28-year-old actor working under the stage name “Zach Avery,” unleashed a Ponzi scheme on the film industry. He raised more than $690 million from “five principal investors” using legally binding debt agreements in the form of promissory notes. Horowitz started soliciting money from investors on behalf of 1inMM Productions, his film production company, which was backed by fake distribution deals and the fake rights agreements. He borrowed money for six months to a year promising a return of up to 40 percent on the investment, telling investors the production intended to use their money to secure the distribution rights to various films in regional geographies and then sell those rights to streamers such as Netflix and HBO. The con was up when F.B.I. agents arrested Horowitz at his $5.7 million home in Beverlywood. The Securities and Exchange Commission charged him with securities fraud, seeking an immediate freeze of his assets and the return of “ill-gotten gains.” “The Hollywood Mogul Con,” a new episode of “The Con,” airs THURSDAY, AUG. 4 (10:00-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC, and next day on demand and on Hulu.

    From wrestlinginc.com: WWE Raw Preview (8/1): SummerSlam Fallout
    Coming out of WWE SummerSlam, the red brand saw returns, debuts, and even a celebrity having his first one-on-one match in company history.
    Most notably, Triple H, in his first couple of weeks in charge of creative, clearly sought to shake things up in the women’s division. With the “Raw” Women’s Championship staying around the waist of Bianca Belair for now, her next major challenge became apparent when a returning Bayley made her way down the ramp before stopping, allowing two other wrestlers to join her in shocking fashion — Dakota Kai, who was released back in April from “NXT,” and Iyo Sky, formerly known as Io Shirai, also making her return from injury and having seemingly signed a new contract. The trio entered the ring and faced down Belair, who was unexpectedly backed up by Becky Lynch, whom Belair had just defeated for the championship.
    Also on the “Raw” side of SummerSlam, Logan Paul made his singles debut when he took on The Miz, busting out moves that we had not seen the social media influencer perform prior to this match. Miz had Maryse and Ciampa at ringside to start out with, but later into the match, AJ Styles came out to help fight off Ciampa, leaving just Maryse in Miz’s corner. Paul defeated Miz using Miz’s own move, the Skull Crushing Finale.
    Bobby Lashley has now beaten Theory in back-to-back PLEs at Money in the Bank and SummerSlam, retaining his United States Championship over Mr. Money in the Bank in fairly quick action. Theory would be seen again in the main event of SummerSlam, attempting to cash in during the main event between Brock Lesnar and Roman Reigns, but Lesnar hit Theory with an F-5 before Theory had the chance to cash in, and he left the arena still holding the battered briefcase Reigns used as a weapon to help put Lesnar away.
    In the last “Raw” match of the night, the Mysterios went 2-0 over The Judgment Day’s Finn Balor and Damian Priest as the father and son team secured the win off of a returning Edge’s help.
    As of early Monday morning, nothing has been promoted for “Raw,” but you can certainly expect fallout from SummerSlam, likely in all four of these storylines.
  • USA Network SNAKE IN THE GRASS – Monday, August 1, 11:00PM Show More
    USA Network pushes human nature to the limits with the new competition series, “Snake in the Grass,” which premieres on Monday, August 1 at 11:00 p.m. ET/PT following “WWE Monday Night RAW.” This action-packed social experiment is hosted by national radio and television personality Bobby Bones. Each episode will feature four players who are dropped into the wild for 36 hours with a chance to win $100,000. In order to win, the four must figure out which one of them is ‘the Snake’ – a saboteur who is secretly undermining the group every step of the way. In this survival of the sneakiest, the players will compete in a series of grueling and mind-twisting challenges, from retrieving game pieces suspended on high wires over a 500-foot canyon, to scaling the face of a cliff to solve puzzles. With each successfully completed challenge, the competitors win a clue that helps reveal the identity of the Snake. Not wanting their identity revealed, the Snake will do whatever it takes to prevent the players from winning the clues by sabotaging their journey any chance they get. After overnighting in the remote and rugged Central American jungle, the group will meet in ‘the Snake Pit’ where they must determine who they think the saboteur might be. If the three players can successfully reveal the identity, they will win the $100,000. If they get it wrong, the Snake walks away with all the money for themselves.

    From wrestlinginc.com: WWE NXT Preview (8/2): Three Title Bouts, Falls Count Anywhere Match
    Three title matches are on tap and a rivalry could come to an end in a Falls Count Anywhere match on tonight’s episode of “WWE NXT”.
    Mandy Rose is set to defend her “NXT” Women’s Championship against Sarray. Rose is already set to defend her title against Zoey Stark on the special Heatwave episode of “NXT” coming up on Tuesday, August 16. Stark earned the title match by winning a 20-woman battle royal last month. However, Sarray was recently visiting “NXT UK” and missed out on that opportunity. She returned on last Tuesday’s episode and challenged Rose to a title match.
    The Creed Brothers are set to put their “NXT” Tag Team Titles on the line tonight against Tony D’Angelo and his top lieutenant, Channing “Stacks” Lorenzo. D’Angelo pinned one-half of the champions, Julius Creed, as his “family” one an eight-man tag team match on last Tuesday’s “NXT”.
    The vacant “NXT” Women’s Tag Team Championship will be on the line in a four-way match. The competing teams are scheduled to be Ivy Nile & Tatum Paxley, Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter, Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon, and the two-time former champions: Toxic Attraction’s Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne. The latest title reign for Dolin and Jayne ended on The Great American Bash special nearly one month ago when they were dethroned by Cora Jade and Roxanne Perez. However, Jade turned on Perez one week later and then dumped her title belt in the trash, leading to the titles being vacated.
    Also tonight, Solo Sikoa and Von Wagner are set to collide in a Falls Count Anywhere match. Their last match ended in a double count-out, which saw them brawl throughout the building and outside into the parking lot. The two also brawled outside the arena following the live broadcast of “SmackDown” last month.
    The following line-up is announced for tonight:
    “NXT” Women’s Championship Match: Sarray vs. Mandy Rose (c)
    “NXT” Tag Team Championship Match: Tony D’Angelo & Channing Lorenzo vs. The Creed Brothers (c)
    “NXT” Women’s Tag Team Championship Match: Ivy Nile & Tatum Paxley vs. Kacy Catanzaro & Kayden Carter vs. Valentina Feroz & Yulisa Leon vs. Toxic Attraction (Gigi Dolin & Jacy Jayne)

    “20/20” reports on a twisted, fatal love triangle and the shocking truth on whether or not the stalker and victim are the same woman. After Cari Farver disappeared from her Iowa home, her friends and family received text messages from her number claiming she had embarked on a new life. Although skeptical of the texts, her loved ones could not prove they were illegitimate. At the same time, Dave Kroupa received a strange, sudden breakup message from Farver’s number after only dating her for a few weeks. Kroupa quickly regretted ever meeting Farver as he, his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Shanna “Liz” Golyar, and others in his life became the targets of obsessive, hateful messages from Farver’s number. Kroupa began to fear for his life as the message content escalated to stalking and threats. In a stunning twist, authorities began to suspect that Farver was dead and hadn’t sent any of the messages. Who was pretending to be his dead ex-girlfriend? The two-hour program untangles the complicated case, answering questions about what happened to Farver and who sent the messages. “20/20” features an in-depth interview with Leslie Rule, author of a book about Farver, A Tangled Web, and shares correspondence she received from Golyar about the story. The program also includes interviews with Kroupa; Nancy Raney, Farver’s mother; and Sgt. Jim Doty, Deputy Ryan Avis and Special Deputy Anthony Kava, who took “20/20” through their investigation step-by-step and revealed how they cracked the case. “20/20” airs Friday, Aug. 5 (9:01-11:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

  • CBS 48 HOURS – Saturday, August 6 Show More
    A rebroadcast of 48 HOURS, Airing Saturday, August 6 (9:00-11:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network – “48 HOURS” DOUBLE FEATURE – AUGUST 6, 2022
    48 HOURS: “Who Killed Jonelle Matthews?” (9:00 PM, ET/PT)
    Richard Schlesinger goes inside the investigation of the disappearance of Jonelle Matthews – and the trial of former Idaho gubernatorial candidate Steven Dana Pankey, for her murder – in an encore of 48 HOURS: “Who Killed Jonelle Matthews?” to be broadcast Saturday, August 6 (9:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network and streaming on Paramount+.
    Matthews vanished from her family’s Greeley, Colo., home five days before Christmas in 1984. The only evidence left behind were shoeprints in the snow – shoeprints someone tried to erase with a garden rake. The case drew national attention. Matthews was featured on milk cartons with other missing children. Then more than three decades later, in 2019, Matthews’ body was found by a crew digging a pipeline. In 2020, Pankey, who says he never met Matthews, was charged with murder after repeatedly making public statements that inserted him into the case, including drawing up a list of persons of interest with his own name on it. But he denies any involvement in her death. Watch a preview.
    48 HOURS: “The Circleville Letters” (10:00 PM, ET/PT)

    The sinister story has gripped part of Ohio for decades, with small-town intrigue, a flood of threatening letters, a booby trap and an attempted murder. Was the man many suspected of writing the letters actually the Circleville letter writer? That’s a question open for discussion.

Watch a preview.

    • NBC “DATELINE””FR3146” ORIGINAL Show More
      Year-Long ‘Dateline’ Investigation Reveals New Details & Looks at Warning Signs the Maryland Town Received About Officer at Center of Case
      On Friday’s all-new Dateline NBC at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT, anchor Lester Holt will report on Anton Black, a 19-year-old Black man who died in 2018 while being taken into police custody in Maryland. The one-hour special, entitled What Happened to Anton Black?, investigates the warning signs the town of Greensboro, Maryland received about Thomas Webster, the officer who initially chased Black after receiving a 911 call that Black had been dragging another boy down the street, unaware that the two boys had known each other for years.
      During the broadcast, Anton’s parents and sister open up about his death, which occurred after Webster, two additional police officers and a bystander restrained him on his front porch. Anton’s father tells Holt that Anton didn’t “attack” anyone or “rob a bank,” explaining, “He’s at his mother’s doorstep. All he wanted to do was go home. He’s home and you don’t get off of him? That’s not right.” Click here to watch the exchange.
      Holt also interviews Jason Johnson, the president of The Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund. Johnson tells Holt that Black’s death was a tragedy, but he didn’t “see any indication of malice” after watching the bodycam footage, adding that he thought it met “the professional standard.” When pressed, Johnson also told Holt, “I could tell you with some degree of certainty that Thomas Webster should not have been a Greensboro police officer at all.”
      No charges were filed against Webster, and Black’s death was ruled accidental.
      Additionally, What Happened to Anton Black? spotlights the parallels between the death of Black and the death of George Floyd, including that the same chief medical examiner reviewed both cases. Like Floyd, Black’s case galvanized a community seeking justice and touched many of the fault lines in the heated debate about policing in America.
      What Happened to Anton Black? is produced by Dateline producers Chetna Joshi and Lynn Keller, supervising producer Dan Slepian and senior producers Joe Delmonico and Paul Ryan. David Corvo is the senior executive producer and Liz Cole is the executive producer.

    Days Update Friday, July 29, 2022

    Days of Our Lives Update

    Update written by Joseph

    Johnny and Allie go to see Chanel. Chanel announces that she has decided which one of them she wants to be with. They both say that’s great. Chanel talks about how it’s taken her a long time and she cares about them both. They tell her to just tell them.

    Paulina and Kate toast to Jake at the Bistro. Paulina calls Jake a hell of a man even though Kate points out that she didn’t know him. Paulina says she’s taking Kate’s word for it and she’s sorry for her loss. Kate doesn’t know why it’s hitting her like this since Jake dumped her for Gabi.

    Ava questions Gabi talking about voting shares when Jake’s body isn’t even cold yet. Gabi complains that EJ is coming after her and wants her job as some of them still work for a living. Ava remarks that some of them aren’t living at all. Ava complains that all Gabi can think about is what Jake’s death is going to cost her. Gabi argues that it’s not personal, it’s business, as if EJ gets his hands on Jake’s DiMera shares, then she has nothing and there’s no way she can stop it. Gabi then declares maybe there is because EJ wouldn’t get Jake’s shares if they went to Jake’s widow. Gabi points out that if Ava and Jake were married, the shares would go to Ava and there’s nothing EJ could do about it. Ava notes the one problem is that they weren’t married. Gabi asks who says?

    EJ complains to the portrait of Stefano that he told Chad that he could stay in the house but it was his decision to take his children and move out, so he can’t help it if the house is so eerily quiet. Kristen then walks in and says not anymore as she tells EJ long time no see.

    Chanel starts to announce her decision but gets distracted by the cherry pie remains on Johnny’s face. Johnny and Allie explain that they smashed pie in each others’ faces and got a little competitive. Chanel hates what this competition is doing to them, so she wants them to promise that what she’s about to say won’t come between them or throw more pies in each others’ faces. Johnny tells her to just tell them what she decided and he’ll act like a grown up from now on. Allie promises to do the same.

    Abe sits at the bar of the Brady Pub with Roman. Roman asks about Chanel having an important talk with Johnny and Allie about the future. Abe says that he and Paulina decided to clear out of the apartment for a bit. Roman jokes that he hopes they put away the breakables before they left. Roman asks how Eli and Lani are doing. Abe responds that Eli got a great apartment in Washington DC while Valerie is helping with the twins and things are working out as well as could be expected. Abe admits he’s missing them like crazy. Roman relates to hoping Lucas and Sami were going to settle down here when they got married but now nothing. Abe asks who would have thought that Lucas would’ve kidnapped Sami and remarks that no one had any idea that it was him. Roman reveals to Abe that some people did as Kate knew and let EJ go to prison for her son’s crime and she let Lucas take Sami off to Europe. Abe tells him that he’s very sorry and asks what that means for he and Kate. Roman declares they are done.

    Kate tells Paulina that she was feeling a bit bitter and vindictive, so she used her power to make Jake suffer for what he did to her. Kate says she got her revenge but it didn’t feel right because she was really hurt. Kate admits it took her awhile to open up her heart again and Roman was so patient and kind. Paulina says she felt so bad when Kate told her that Roman broke up with her since they seemed so happy together. Paulina asks what’s wrong with Roman but Kate admits it was her fault.

    EJ tells Kristen that he knew she would show up here eventually. Kristen responds that she didn’t come to see him, but to offer her condolence to Chad. EJ informs her that she’s come to the wrong place then because Chad and the children have moved out. Kristen points out that EJ will have even more empty bedrooms here than usual, so she will be moving back in. EJ laughs at that and questions her just deciding that. Kristen says it’s better than crashing with Jake and Ava and the place is very big, so they don’t have to see each other. EJ tells her that he could actually envision them getting close again, so they could join forces and vote Gabi out once and for all to take back their father’s company.

    Ava questions Gabi as to who would believe that she married Jake on the same day that he died. Gabi asks if anyone can prove that she didn’t marry him this morning. Ava guesses not and points out that they got robbed right as they bought the ring. Gabi suggests saying it was spur of the moment. Ava tells Gabi to shut up and questions being her partner in crime when the man she loves is lying here dead. Ava reminds Gabi that she actually despises her. Gabi suggests Ava help herself before her life comes crashing down. Ava warns that better not be a threat.

    Sonny goes to see Chad at the Horton House with a lasagna that Maggie made for Jack and Jennifer. Chad informs Sonny that he’s not just visiting as he and the kids are staying and just moved in. Sonny sees why he wouldn’t want to stay at the DiMera Mansion but Chad says that’s not why, so Sonny asks what happened. Chad responds that EJ kicked them out.

    Kristen tells EJ that she couldn’t double cross Gabi since she’s been very good to her since she’s been out. EJ questions how. Kristen reveals that Gabi put her in charge of Basic Black which is right where she wants to be, between Chloe and Brady. EJ says he knows her so well that she will want to hear him out. Kristen agrees to listen. EJ informs her that he just came in to possession of Chad and Kate’s shares of the company, so if he could have Kristen’s, they could take over the world. EJ says Kristen could keep her position at Basic Black and move in to her old suite here while her daughter Rachel has the one next to her, assuming she wins custody. Kristen stops him and questions how he has Chad’s shares. EJ reveals that Chad betrayed him, so it was the price he had to pay. Kristen asks how she’s supposed to trust that EJ won’t betray her. EJ says he’d be a fool to do that when he needs her shares. EJ asks if they have a deal.

    Ava tells Gabi that she’s not going to help her take on EJ DiMera. Gabi warns her not to make such rash statements, pointing out that now that she’s on her own, she doesn’t have a dime so without her help, her life is going to fall apart. Ava questions why Gabi would help her. Gabi says she’s read the company by laws and knows that if Ava and Jake were married, his shares would go directly to her. Gabi tells her to think about the lovely dividends that would go in to her account every month. Ava questions why she’s so concerned with her finances. Gabi admits there is something in it for her as EJ wouldn’t be able to generate enough power to kick her out as CEO. Ava is surprised that Gabi came up with this plan. Ava says if Gabi is right and she gets Jake’s shares, she questions what is to stop her from teaming up with EJ to help bury her.

    Chanel tells Allie and Johnny again how hard this decision was, but what hit her was that she and Johnny never would’ve been together. Allie says if she was just honest about her feelings while Johnny argues that they were together. Chanel says she knows and their time together was the most romantic few weeks of her life until he broke her heart in a million pieces when she thought he didn’t love her anymore. Johnny complains that she knows that wasn’t him. Johnny calls her the best thing to ever happen to him and says he never stopped loving her. Chanel declares that she loves both of them, but the person that she wants to be with, hopefully for the rest of her life, is Allie.

    Kate informs Paulina that she knew Lucas was the one who kidnapped Sami after she was rescued but kept it to herself. Paulina is surprised but understands that she was protecting her child. Kate points out that it was done at the expense of Roman’s child. Paulina remarks that from what she’s seen of Sami Brady, she can take care of herself. Kate says she’s still Roman’s baby so he won’t forgive her. Paulina compares Abe to Roman and says she’s broken his trust more than once. Paulina says they come from the same place, both started with nothing, and got beaten down by men who claimed to love them so it’s hard to trust after that. Kate appreciates her trying to let her off the hook. Paulina says she has to let herself off the hook if she expects Roman to. Kate clarifies that she doesn’t expect Roman to. Paulina points out that Abe forgave her. Paulina recalls Kate telling her at the hospital to be patient and not to give up on the love between them. Paulina advises Kate to take her own advice and not give up on Roman now.

    Abe tells Roman that he’s sorry but asks if he thinks he might be willing to give Kate another chance. Roman says no way after what she did. Abe points out that he said the same thing about Paulina as he thought he would never be able to trust her again, but now they are happily married. Abe says people used to say they need to give happiness a chance and points out that Roman was one of those people.

    Chad tells Sonny that he doesn’t know if he could stand living in the DiMera Mansion anymore since everywhere he looked, he saw Abigail and the last time he saw her alive was in their bedroom when they were hoping they had made a new baby. Sonny doesn’t know what to say. Chad says he never wants to see that room again. Sonny tells him that he’s really sorry. Chad says EJ just gave him the push he needed to get them out of that house and it’s a relief since the kids love the Horton house. Chad adds that he doesn’t know what they would do without Jack and Jennifer, so he has no idea what they are going to do when they go back to Boston. Sonny responds that there’s room at the Kiriakis Mansion, so they can stay there as long as they need.

    Gabi warns Ava that if she teams up with EJ, her shares won’t be worth a cent because she knows Ava and Jake didn’t get married, so if she double crosses her, she will out her and she’ll be left with nothing. Ava takes it that Gabi is threatening her. Gabi says she can’t take what she doesn’t have. Gabi declares Ava either works with her and they both win or she screws with her and they both go down, so it’s her choice.

    Kristen tells EJ that they definitely do not have a deal. EJ points out that he’s offering her a significant upgrade to her current situation. Kristen questions how long it will last since she can call the shots with Gabi. EJ is not so sure as he talks about Gabi being on the outs with Jake since he’s sleeping with Ava. EJ asks how Gabi feels about Kristen living with Jake and Ava. EJ questions since when Kristen has such a close relationship with Jake. Kristen warns EJ not to be a snob, reminding him that she took care of her during his vegetative state. Dr. Rolf then emerges from the DiMera tunnels, interrupting them. EJ questions what the hell he was doing in there. Dr. Rolf responds that he needed somewhere to stay after he was pardoned and he didn’t want to impose. EJ remarks that he thought the house was feeling quite empty. Dr. Rolf guesses EJ hasn’t heard about his dead brother, Jake, leaving EJ and Kristen confused.

    Kate appreciates Paulina’s encouragement but doesn’t know if she can take herself off the hook, noting that Roman isn’t the only one having a hard time forgiving her these days since Allie and Will are as well. Paulina doesn’t know Will but feels Allie might be in a more forgiving place after she talks to her daughter. Kate asks why that would be. Paulina reveals that right now, Chanel is telling Johnny and Allie which twin she wants to be with. Kate jokes that she might be in a better place or a worse place, depending on how it goes.

    Allie tells Chanel that she is so happy as Johnny steps aside, disappointed. Allie tries to tell Johnny that she’s really sorry but Johnny doesn’t believe her. Chanel says this is why it took her so long to make a decision, because she hated the idea of hurting either one of them. Johnny argues that Chanel can’t say she didn’t feel something between them. Chanel argues that her feelings are still there and that’s why she had to make a list of what she loved about both of them. Chanel says she just had more time with Allie since they are best friends and work together every day, but still love each other which is amazing. Chanel feels they never really had the chance to see where things might go between them and she thinks they deserve that chance but Johnny tells her that he can’t understand that.

    Ava argues that Gabi can’t pull this off since the board of directors will want to see a marriage license. Gabi says she will take care of all that because money talks. Ava complains that Jake just died this morning and all she wants to talk about is money. Gabi says she wants to talk about the future. Gabi acknowledges that Jake was not the love of her life but they cared about each other and in the end, they just weren’t right for each other. Gabi says they wanted each other to be happy and she won’t be happy if she loses her job and she knows Jake wouldn’t want to see Ava out on the street. Ava decides she needs time to think about this but Gabi says it’s now or never and asks what it’s going to be.

    Sonny tells Chad that he’s serious as he already knows Victor and Maggie would love to have them at the house and how big it is. Sonny adds that his brother Alex is already there. Sonny explains that he didn’t know he was coming to town and just showed up. Chad asks how long he’s staying. Sonny says he’s not going anywhere as he apparently wants to work with him at Titan. Chad asks how Sonny feels about that. Sonny doesn’t know yet as Alex just assumes he will give him a job and guesses there’s no reason not to. Chad says he can think of a few reasons. Chad declares that in his book, working with his brother is a really bad idea.

    Dr. Rolf informs EJ and Kristen that Jake was shot by someone attempting to rob him and he was taken to the hospital but they could not save his life. EJ decides he should get there but Kristen asks why since EJ doesn’t give a damn about Jake. EJ argues that someone has to take charge and he is his next of kin. Kristen guesses EJ just doesn’t want anyone to beat him to the shares of stock that Jake owned. EJ admits that he doesn’t. Kristen guesses he doesn’t need her anymore then. EJ points out that Kristen rejected his offer, so he expects her to be gone when he gets back. Kristen mocks EJ’s grief as he exits the mansion. Dr. Rolf questions her. Kristen argues that she barely knew Jake, but she didn’t hate him on sight like the rest of the family. Kristen declares that she’s not racing EJ to the hospital to take advantage of Jake’s death. Dr. Rolf suggests perhaps she should.

    Allie questions Johnny not accepting Chanel’s decision. Chanel reminds him that he promised he would. Johnny admits that he did. Johnny calls Allie a lucky woman. Allie says she knows. Johnny offers his hand, so Allie hugs him. Johnny tells Allie to be good to Chanel. Allie says she will. Johnny decides he has to go and says he’ll see them around as he then exits.

    Paulina notes that she hasn’t heard from Chanel yet, so she can’t go home and neither can Abe, so he’s hanging out at the Pub. Paulina asks Kate if Abe could count on her support if he ran for Governor. Kate assures that she would and asks if he’s thinking of running. Paulina says she’s planted the seed. Kate responds that Paulina did the same for her as she’s been thinking about what she had to say, so she’s going to go to the Pub to talk to Roman. Paulina encourages Kate to go get her man as Kate then exits.

    Roman argues that his situation is a lot different than Abe’s was. Abe asks why since both Kate and Paulina were keeping a secret to protect their children. Roman asks what about his kid. Abe asks if he really believes Lucas would put Sami in danger. Roman points out that he kidnapped her. Abe calls it bad judgment, but he thinks Lucas did it because he loves her so much. Roman says that’s what Kate said and admits he hasn’t been a great judge of character lately since his ex-wife and two of his grandkids got possessed by The Devil and he didn’t have a clue. Roman adds that Clyde Weston is making his chowder right now and soon after he hired him, he bought stolen jewelry and got locked up for Abigail’s murder while now Clyde’s old partner in crime is being let out of jail by the Governor. Abe says calling it a rough year an understatement. Roman questions if Abe has any idea why the Governor would let somebody like Orpheus out of jail early. Abe wishes he knew. Roman remarks that at least he can’t run again in November. Abe mentions that Paulina thinks that he should run for Governor and even invited Governor Mitchell to dinner as part of a big plan to get him to endorse him. Roman assumes that was before the pardons. Abe says that made his seal of approval worthless which means Paulina’s big plan is not going to work out. Roman comments that not a whole lot is working out lately. Roman then goes to check on Abe’s dinner.

    Dr. Rolf tells Kristen that he lives by the creed of “What would Stefano Do” and in this case, there’s only one choice to make. Kristen asks if he really thinks he can do it. Dr. Rolf says yes, with her help.

    EJ goes to the hospital and tells Kayla that he just heard about his brother. Kayla says she’s so sorry. EJ states that Jake was so young and claims that they had gotten quite close recently which Kayla says she did not know. EJ states that he would like to have Jake’s body buried in the DiMera Crypt. Kayla points out that there is paper work to be filled out by his next of kin, which she guessed was Vivian. EJ argues that Vivian is a convicted felon, so he doesn’t think the hospital wants to enter any agreement with her. Kayla asks who he suggests then. EJ declares that he is the head of the family now, so Kayla goes to get the forms. Gabi approaches EJ and comments that she sees the vultures are already circling. Kayla brings EJ the forms and tells him to read it over before signing. Gabi questions the forms and argues that Jake’s next of kin would be his wife. EJ points out that Jake didn’t have a wife. Gabi responds that he didn’t until this morning.

    Ava remains sitting next to Jake’s body and says this morning seems like a dream. Ava talks about how they were so happy when they bought the rings. Ava puts the ring on Jake’s finger and declares that she will always remember this morning and she will always love him.

    Kate goes to the Brady Pub and greets Abe. Abe thought she was with Paulina. Kate confirms that they were hanging out and mentions that she heard Abe has been exiled from his apartment. Abe hopes it’s not for much longer. Kate thought she would come by to talk to Roman and asks if he’s around. Roman then comes back to the counter. Kate asks if he has a minute to talk.

    Johnny goes to the Bistro and greets Paulina. Johnny informs her that she’s safe to go home now as Chanel announced her decision. Paulina guesses he’s not here to celebrate. Johnny confirms that Chanel wants to be with Allie.

    Chanel and Allie sit together and talk about being the happiest women in the world now. Allie tells Chanel that she wants her so bad, but it feels a little weird to celebrate when Johnny is miserable. Chanel knows what she means but asks how long they should wait before they celebrate. Allie doesn’t know as it feels like they’ve been waiting forever. Chanel agrees and says the whole point of being together is to really be together. Allie decides that Chanel is right. Chanel declares that they have waited long enough as she and Allie then kiss.

    Chad tells Sonny that he’s sure Alex is nothing like EJ. Sonny is glad Chad was honest and notes that he gets along with Alex fine, but he’s never been his boss before. Chad gets a call from Tony and asks what’s going on. Tony informs Chad of Jake’s death. Chad asks if he’s sure and thanks him for letting him know as he then hangs up. Sonny asks what he said. Chad reveals that Jake was shot and died.

    Gabi tells EJ that Ava and Jake got married. EJ questions when this happened. Ava comes over and says it was this morning. Kayla says she did not know. Ava says everything was happening so fast that it didn’t occur to her to tell her, but they were husband and wife. Kayla is sorry to bring this up now but there are forms to be signed by Jake’s legal next of kin, frustrating EJ.

    Dr. Rolf asks Kristen if she’s ready to go. Kristen says not until he tells her what sort of help he needs from her. Dr. Rolf complains that there’s no time for explanations as they must act now, so Kristen follows him out.

    Roman tells Kate that he doesn’t have time to talk because he just found out his boiler is on the fritz and he doesn’t have a lot to say to her. Roman then walks away. Abe encourages Kate not to give up hope because Roman will come around. Kate says that Paulina said the same thing. Abe adds that he told Roman to give Kate another chance. Kate thanks him but doubts that he’s going to do that. Abe tells her to just give it some time.

    Paulina tells Johnny that between them, she was pulling for him.

    Allie and Chanel lay in bed together and say “I love you” to each other as they continue kissing.

    Sonny doesn’t know what to say to Chad. Chad doesn’t either as he wasn’t that close with Jake but he was Abigail’s friend and now they are both gone.

    Gabi tells EJ that it was a nice try. EJ claims to have no idea what she’s talking about. Gabi guesses he was about to sign the next of kin papers but now he can’t get his hands on Jake’s shares of DiMera stock. EJ tells her not to be so sure since this marriage came out of nowhere and is awfully convenient. EJ warns that he will get to the bottom of this and then exits the hospital. Kayla informs Ava that the orderlies are here to pick up Jake’s body and take it to the morgue. Kayla adds that when Ava has made the funeral arrangements, he will be released to her. Ava remarks on having to make funeral arrangements on her wedding day.

    Dr. Rolf and Kristen sneak in to Jake’s hospital room, dressed as nurses. Rolf uncovers Jake’s body and asks if he’s ready for his next adventure. Kristen comments that she really hopes he didn’t lose his touch in prison as they then wheel Jake’s body out of the room.

    Transcript provided by Suzanne

    Chanel: So I’ve decided which of you I want to be with.

    Allie: That’s– uh, that’s really great.

    Johnny: Sure is.

    Chanel: And I want you to know that I know it’s taken me forever, but I just–I care about you both so much, and–

    Both: Just tell us.

    Kate: To jake.

    Paulina: To jake. A hell of a man.

    Kate: Ooh, well, that’s pretty kind considering the fact that you didn’t know him from adam.

    Paulina: I’m taking your word for it.

    Kate: [Chuckles]

    Paulina: Kate, I’m sorry for your loss.

    Kate: Yeah, I don’t know– I don’t even know why his death is hitting me like this.

    Paulina: Mm. You two had a thing, didn’t you?

    Kate: Yeah, we did. We did, and it was pretty good for a while until he dumped me for gabi hernandez.

    Ava: What is your problem?

    Gabi: What?

    Ava: Jake’s body isn’t even cold, and you’re talking about voting shares?

    Gabi: Ej’s coming after me. He wants my job. And, you know, some of us still work for a living.

    Ava: Yeah, and you know, some of us aren’t living at all! And all you can do is think about what jake’s death is gonna cost you.

    Gabi: This is not personal. This is business. If ej gets his hands on jake’s dimera shares, then I’ve got nothing that… there’s no way I can stop it. Or maybe there is. Ej wouldn’t get jake’s shares if they went to jake’s widow.

    Ava: What widow?

    Gabi: You, babe. If you and jake were married, those shares would go to you, and there’s nothing that ej could do about it.

    Ava: Yeah, there’s one little problem here. We’re not married.

    Gabi: Says who?

    Ej: Don’T. Don’t give me that look. I told chad he could stay in the house. It was his decision to move your grandchildren out. Can I help it if this house is so eerily quiet?

    Kristen: Not anymore, it’s not.


    Ej: Kristen.

    Kristen: Hey, ej. Long time no see.

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

    [Soft orchestration]

    Chanel: Okay, so what I’ve decided is… is that blood?

    Johnny: Huh? What?

    Chanel: On your face.

    Johnny: Uh, no. No, that’S… actually, that’s cherry.

    Chanel: But how’d it get there?

    Johnny: Um–

    Allie: I threw pie in his face, okay? And then, he threw one in mine, so…

    Johnny: We’re just a little competitive over the pie-tasting.

    Allie: Among other things.

    Chanel: You guys, I hate what this competition is doing to you, especially the one about “other things,” me being “other things,” I assume. So I just want you to promise me– please, please promise me– that what I’m about to say, it won’t come between you. It won’t make you throw more pie in each other’s faces.

    Johnny: Just tell us what you’ve decided, okay? And I’ll act like a grown-up from now on.

    Allie: Yeah, I will too. I promise.

    Roman: So chanel’s having an important talk with johnny and allie, huh?

    Abe: Mm-hmm, about the future. Right. And paulina and I decided that we should clear out of the apartment for a bit.

    Roman: Well, I hope you put away the breakables before you left.

    Abe: [Laughs] Well, I sure hope we don’t need to.

    Roman: There you go.

    Abe: Ah, thank you.

    Roman: Mm-hmm. So how are eli and lani doing?

    Abe: Well, eli’s got this great apartment in D.C. And valerie is helping with the twins, so you know, things are working out as well as can be expected. Me, I– I am missing them like crazy.

    Roman: I know what you mean. You know, when I thought lucas and sami were gonna get married, I was hoping they would settle down here. And now, nothing’s settled and won’t be for a long time.

    Abe: Yeah, who would’ve thought lucas would have kidnapped sami? You know, no one had any idea it was him.

    Roman: Some people did– kate, for example.

    Abe: Kate knew?

    Roman: Yeah. She let ej go to prison for a crime her son did and she let lucas take my daughter, the woman he kidnapped, off to europe.

    Abe: I am very sorry. Well, what does that mean for you and kate?

    Roman: There is no “me and kate.” We’re done.

    Kate: I was feeling a bit bitter, vindictive, so I used my power to make him suffer for what he did to me.

    Paulina: Got your revenge, huh?

    Kate: Yeah, I got my revenge, but it didn’t feel that good, you know? Because, deep down, I was actually really hurt.

    Paulina: I hear you.

    Kate: So it took me a while, you know, to– to open up my heart again.

    [Sighs] And roman was so patient, and he was so kind. Now, it’S…

    Paulina: Aw, kate. Well, I felt so bad when you told me he broke up with you, especially because you seemed– you two seemed so happy together. What’s wrong with that man?

    Kate: Not a damn thing. It’s my fault.

    Ej: When I heard about your miraculous pardon, I knew you’d show up here eventually.

    Kristen: Huh. I didn’t come to see you. I came to offer my condolences to chad.

    Ej: Well, you’ve come to the wrong place. Chad and the children have moved out.

    Kristen: Huh. Well, then you obviously have even more empty bedrooms here than usual, so I’ll be moving back in.

    Ej: [Laughs] Really?

    Kristen: Mm-hmm.

    Ej: You just decided this?

    Kristen: Well, it’s better than crashing with jake and ava. And you know what, brother? This place is very big, and you and I don’t have to see each other.

    Ej: Actually, I could envision us getting close again.

    Kristen: Mm. And why would we do that?

    Ej: So we could join forces. Vote gabi out once and for all and take back our father’s company.

    Kristen: Hmm…

    Ava: Who is gonna believe that I married jake on the same day that…

    Gabi: Is there anybody that can prove that you didn’t marry him this morning?

    Ava: [Sniffles] I guess not. We got robbed right as we bought the rings.

    Gabi: Where? What jewelry store?

    Ava: The one off the square.

    Gabi: Okay, that’s perfect. That’s a block away from city hall. Okay, here’s what we’re gonna do–we’re gonna say it was a spur of the moment thing. You didn’t have rings. After you tied the knot, you went to go find rings to make it look authentic–

    Ava: Okay, will you shut up? Please shut up. You’re talking about me being your partner in crime? Have you forgotten than the man that I love is lying here dead? Have you forgotten that I actually despise you?

    Gabi: Okay. Forget about helping me, but maybe you’d like to help yourself before your life comes crashing down.

    Ava: Oh, that better not be a threat. Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.

    Sonny: Okay, so this is the lasagna that maggie made for jack and jennifer. Obviously, she didn’t know you and the kids were showing up, but I mean, it should be enough for you all.

    Chad: I’m sure it will be. Actually, we’re not visiting. Kids and I are staying here now. I just moved us in.

    Sonny: Oh. I mean, I guess I see why you wouldn’t want to be staying at the dimera house.

    Chad: That’s not why we left.

    Sonny: What happened?

    Chad: Ej kicked us out.

    Kristen: Oh, I couldn’t double-cross gabi. She’s been very good to me since I’ve been out.

    Ej: [Chuckles] “Good to you” how?

    Kristen: Well, guess who is in charge of basic black, hmm? Which is right where I want to be.

    Ej: Mm-hmm, between chloe and brady.

    Kristen: Oh, you know me so well.

    Ej: I do. And that’s why I know you’ll want to hear me out.

    Kristen: I’m listening.

    Ej: I’ve just come into possession of chad and kate’s shares in the company.

    Kristen: Ooh, how clever of you.

    Ej: Mm-hmm, and if I could have yours–

    Kristen: Oh, you could take over the world.

    Ej: “We.” We could take over the world. You could keep your lofty position at basic black and move into your old suite here. Rachel could have the one right next to yours, assuming you win custody.

    Kristen: Hold on, hold on. How do you have chad’s shares?

    Ej: He betrayed me. It was the price he had to pay.

    Kristen: Oh, and how am i supposed to trust you that you’re not gonna betray me?

    Ej: Oh, I’d be a fool to do that. I need your shares. Do we have a deal?

    Ava: I’m not gonna help you take on ej dimera.

    Gabi: I wouldn’t make such rash statements if I were you. Now that you’re on your own since jake’s life was cut drastically short, you don’t have a dime. Without my help, your life is gonna fall apart.

    Ava: And why would you help me?

    Gabi: I’ve read the company bylaws, and I know that if you and jake were married, his shares would go directly to you. Think about the lovely dividends that you’d be receiving into your account every single month.

    Ava: And why are so concerned with my finances?

    Gabi: You’re right, no, there is something in it for me.

    Ava: Surprise, surprise.

    Gabi: Ej wouldn’t be able to generate enough power to kick me out as ceo.

    Ava: Well, I’m actually surprised you did come up with this plan.

    Gabi: Why?

    Ava: Well, let’s say you’re right and I do get those shares. What’s to keep me from teaming up with ej to help him bury you?

    Chanel: Okay, now that I have both of your attention, I want you to know how hard this decision was. But what hit me was that you and I never even would’ve been together if–

    Allie: I’d just been honest with myself about my feelings for you.

    Johnny: But we were together, chanel. We were.

    Chanel: I know, and our time together was the most romantic few weeks of my life… until you broke my heart in a million pieces when I thought that you didn’t love me anymore.

    Johnny: But that wasn’t me talking, chanel. You know that. Look, you are the best thing that’s ever happened to me, and I never stopped loving you.

    Chanel: I love you. I love both of you, but the person that I want to be with, hopefully for the rest of my life, is allie.

    When moderate to severe

    ulcerative colitis persists…

    Paulina: You knew a long time ago.

    Kate: That lucas was the one that kidnapped sami? Yes, he told me after she was rescued, but I kept it to myself.

    Paulina: You were protecting your child.

    Kate: At the expense of roman’s child.

    Paulina: From what I’ve seen of sami brady, she can take care of herself.

    Kate: Oh, yes, but she is roman’s baby, and he’s not going to forgive me.

    Paulina: Abraham is like roman, and I’ve broken his trust more than once.

    Kate: Yeah, but you were protecting lani.

    Paulina: And my pocketbook. Remember price town?

    Kate: Mm-hmm.


    Paulina: What I’m trying to say is, the two of us, we come from the same place. We both started out with nothing. Got beaten down by men who claimed they loved us. It’s hard to trust after that, and not just other people– ourselves too.

    Kate: I appreciate you trying to let me off the hook.

    Paulina: You have to let yourself off the hook if you expect roman to.

    Kate: I don’t expect roman to.

    Paulina: Abraham forgave me, didn’t he? I’ll never forget running into you at the hospital. You told me, “be patient. Don’t give up on the love between us.” Kate, you need to take your own advice. Don’t give up on roman now.

    Abe: What can I say except I’m sorry?

    Roman: Yeah, me too.

    Abe: Do you think you might be willing to give kate another chance?

    Roman: No way. After what she did?

    Abe: You know, I said the same thing about paulina. I thought that I would never be able to trust her again, but now, we’re happily married. You know, people used to say you need to give happiness a chance. You were one of those people. I’m just saying.

    Chad: Honestly, I don’t know if I can stand living in that house anymore. I mean, everywhere I looked, I– I saw abby. Getting dressed up for a night out, reading to the kids, goofing around with them. You know, the last time I saw her alive was in our bedroom. We were hoping we’d made a new baby.

    Sonny: Jeez, man, I don’t know what to say.

    Chad: Well, I never wanna see that room again.

    Sonny: I’m really sorry, chad.

    Chad: Ej gave me the push I needed to get us out of that house, and honestly, it’s a relief. The kids love this place, and I don’t know what we would do without jack and jennifer. You know, I just have no idea what we’re gonna do when they go back to boston.

    Sonny: I have one idea.

    Chad: Yeah?

    Sonny: Yeah. There’s room in my house. You, thomas, charlotte. You can stay there as long as you need.

    Gabi: If you team up with ej, those shares of yours? They’re not gonna be worth a red cent.

    Ava: Oh, and why’s that?

    Gabi: [Scoffs] You spent too much time playing domestic goddess with rafe. You’re slowing down.

    Ava: I asked you a question.

    Gabi: I know that you and jake didn’t get married. You double-cross me, and I will out you in a hot second. You will be left with less than nothing.

    Ava: Oh, so you are threatening me?

    Gabi: I can’t take what you don’t have. The way I see it, you’ve got two options–you work with me and we both win, or you screw with me and we both go down for the count. It’s your choice.

    Kristen: Hmm, we most definitely do not have a deal.

    Ej: You do realize I’m offering you quite a significant upgrade on your current situation.

    Kristen: Uh-huh, but for how long? See, I can call the shots with gabi.

    Ej: [Chuckles] Oh, I wouldn’t be so sure. See, your new friend is on the outs with jake because he’s been sleeping with ava. What does gabi feel about you sharing quarters with jake and ava? And since when do you have a close relationship with our brother, the grease monkey?

    Kristen: I wouldn’t be such a snob if I were you. Have you forgotten that I took care of you during your vegetative state? And the thanks that I got from you was that–

    [Secret panel creaking]

    Ej: Rolf, what the hell were you doing in there?

    Rolf: I needed somewhere to stay after I was pardoned. I didn’t want to impose.

    Ej: And here I thought the house was feeling quite empty.

    Rolf: I take it you haven’t heard about your brother?

    Ej: Which one?

    Rolf: The dead one?

    Ej: [Sighs] You’re going to have to be more specific.

    Rolf: Jake. My asthma felt anything but normal.

    Kate: Well, I do appreciate the encouragement, but I don’t know if I can take myself off the hook, you know? And roman isn’t the only one who’s having a hard time forgiving me these days.

    Paulina: Mm, who else?

    Kate: Sami’s kids– my grandkids– allie and will.

    Paulina: I don’t know will, but allie might be in a more forgiving place after she talks to my daughter.

    Kate: Really? Why would that be?

    Paulina: Right now, chanel is telling allie and johnny which twin she wants to be with.

    Kate: [Gasps] Wow. Okay. Well, she might be in a better place then, or she might be in a worse place, depending how it goes.

    Allie: Oh, chanel, I am so happy. Um, johnny, I’m really sorry.

    Johnny: No, you’re not.

    Chanel: See, this is why it took me so long to make a decision. I hated the idea of hurting either one of you.

    Johnny: When you just touched my face before, don’t tell me you didn’t feel something between us.

    Chanel: My feelings for you are still there. Why do you think I had to make a list of what I loved about both of you?

    Johnny: [Scoffs] I take it allie had the longer list?

    Chanel: Allie has just had more time than you have. We’re best friends, and we work together every day, and we still love each other, which is pretty amazing. And we’ve never really had a chance to see where things might go between us, and I think that we deserve that chance. Can you understand that?

    Johnny: No, I can’T.

    Ava: You can’t pull this off. The board of directors is gonna want to see a marriage license.

    Gabi: I’ll take care of all that.

    Ava: How?

    Gabi: Money talks.

    Ava: Yeah, jake just died this morning, and all you want to talk about is money.

    Gabi: [Sighs] I want to talk about the future, okay? Yes, jake was not the love of my life, but I cared about him and he cared about me. And at the end, we were not right for each other, but I– I wanted to see him happy, and he wanted the same thing for me. And I’m not gonna be happy if I lose this job, and I know jake’s not gonna want to see you out on the street.

    Ava: I need time to think about this.

    Gabi: I’m sorry. It’s now or never, okay? What’s it gonna be?

    Sonny: Look, I’m serious, okay? I already know uncle vic and maggie would love to have you and the kids at the house, and you already know how big it is.

    Chad: Yeah, I do.

    Sonny: But in the spirit of full transparency, I should probably let you know my brother’s already there, so…

    Chad: Which brother?

    Sonny: Alex.

    Chad: You didn’t tell me he was coming to town.

    Sonny: Oh, I didn’t know either. He just sort of showed up. Apparently, he’s not having a blast in phoenix or with joe or vic.

    Chad: How long is he staying?

    Sonny: Oh, he’s not going anywhere. Yeah, apparently he wants to work with me at titan.

    Chad: And how do you feel about that?

    Sonny: I don’t know yet. You know, he just sort of assumes that I’ll give him a job because there’s no reason not to.

    Chad: I can think of a few reasons.

    Sonny: Oh, yeah?

    Chad: Yeah, you’d be working with your brother. In my book, that’s a really bad idea.

    Kristen: Jake is–

    Ej: He’s dead?

    Rolf: He was shot by someone attempting to rob him. They got him to the hospital, but they couldn’t save his life.

    Ej: I’d better go over there.

    Kristen: Why? You don’t give a damn about jake.

    Ej: Someone has to take charge, act as his next of kin.

    Kristen: Oh, I get it. You don’t want anyone to beat you to those shares of stock he owns.

    Ej: Owned, and of course I don’T.

    Kristen: Oh, I guess you won’t be needing me anymore.

    Ej: You rejected my offer. I expect you to be gone when I’m back.

    Kristen: Well, he wasn’t what I’d call “prostrated by grief.”

    Rolf: Unlike you?

    Kristen: I barely knew jake, but I didn’t hate him on sight like the rest of my family! Okay, I’m not racing ej to the hospital to take advantage of that poor guy’s death.

    Rolf: Perhaps you should be.

    Kristen: [Sighs]

    From prom dresses

    Allie: It sounds like you’re not accepting chanel’s decision.

    Chanel: You promised you would.

    Johnny: You’re right, I did. You’re a lucky woman.

    Allie: I know.

    [Tender music]

    Johnny: You be good to her.

    Allie: I will.

    Johnny: Uh, okay. Well, I got to go. See you around.

    Paulina: Mm, nothing from chanel yet, so I can’t go home. Oh, neither can abe, so he’s hanging out at the pub. Hmm, speaking of my husband, if he were to run for a higher office–say governor– could he count on your support?

    Kate: Oh, well, he’d be a hell of a lot better than the cracked clown we have in there now, wouldn’t he?

    Paulina: So you would support him?

    Kate: Of course I’d support him.

    Paulina: Oh.

    Kate: Is he thinking of running?

    Paulina: Let’s just say I planted the seed.

    Kate: Hmm, actually, you did the same for me.

    Paulina: I did?

    Kate: Yeah. I’ve been thinking about what you had to say, and I think I’m gonna go over to the pub, and I’m gonna talk to roman.

    Paulina: Oh, I’m so glad. I’m so glad; you go ahead. Go get your man, honey.

    Kate: Thank you.


    Paulina: Oh! Mmm.

    Roman: Well, you know what, abe? My situation is a whole lot different than yours was.

    Abe: Why? Both kate and paulina were keeping a secret to protect their children.

    Roman: Yeah, what about my kid?

    Abe: You don’t really believe that lucas would put sami in danger?

    Roman: Hell yes! He kidnapped her, abe.

    Abe: Well, he used bad judgment. I mean, there’s no denying that, but I think that he did it because he loved her so much.

    Roman: You know what? That’s what kate thought, and it’s not like I’ve been a great judge of character lately.

    Abe: And why would you say that?

    Roman: Well, for one, my ex-wife and two of my grandkids were possessed by the devil, and I didn’t have a clue. And you know who’s making your chowder right now? Clyde weston, the felon I vouched for when my niece took off on a trip around the world. And soon after I hired him, he bought some stolen jewelry, got locked up for abigail’s murder. And now, his old partner in crime is being let out of jail by the governor.

    Abe: To call it a rough year would be an understatement.

    Roman: Yeah. Do you have any idea why the governor would let somebody like orpheus out of jail early?

    Abe: Wish I did.

    Roman: Yeah, well, at least he can’t run again in november.

    Abe: Paulina thinks I should run.

    Roman: For governor?

    Abe: She even invited mitchell to dinner. Had this big plan to get him to endorse me.

    Roman: [Chuckles] I assume that was before he pardoned a whole lot of people like orpheus.

    Abe: Thereby making his seal of approval totally worthless, which means, among other things, that paulina’s big plan is not going to work out.

    Roman: Yeah. Well, there are not a whole lot of things working out lately, so tell you what. I’m gonna check on your dinner.

    Abe: [Sighs]

    Rolf: I live by one creed: “What would stefano do?” Hmm? In this situation, there is but one choice to make.

    Kristen: You really think you can do it?

    Rolf: Yes, with your help.

    Kristen: [Sighs]

    Kayla: Oh!

    Ej: I just heard about my brother.

    Kayla: Yeah, I’m so sorry.

    Ej: [Sighs] He was so young. We had gotten quite close recently.

    Kayla: I did not know that.

    Ej: When you release his body, I’d like to have him buried in the dimera crypt.

    Kayla: Well, there’s some paperwork that needs to be filled out by his next of kin. I was guessing that was vivian.

    Ej: She’s a convicted felon. I don’t think the hospital wants to enter into any sort of agreement with her.

    Kayla: Good point. Well, how do you suggest?

    Ej: Myself. I am the head of the family now.

    Kayla: Okay. I’ll get the forms.

    Gabi: I see the vultures are already circling.

    Ej: Yes, so it seems.

    Kayla: I would definitely read it over before you sign it.

    Ej: Thank you.

    Gabi: What is that?

    Kayla: It’s forms that need to be signed by jake’s next of kin.

    Gabi: Wouldn’t that be his wife?

    Ej: Jake didn’t have a wife.

    Gabi: Until this morning.

    Ava: [Sniffles] Your hand is so cold. Hmm. This morning seems like a dream.


    [Chuckles] We were so happy when we bought these.

    [Somber music]

    With this ring, I thee wed. I will always remember this morning. And I’ll always love you. My a1c stayed here,

    Kate: Hey, abe.

    Abe: Oh, hey. Aw. So I thought you were with paulina. I mean, she texted me that you were hanging out.

    Kate: Well, yes, we were.

    [Laughter] But I knew you’d be here. You’ve been exiled from your apartment, I heard.

    Abe: Not for too much longer, I hope.

    Kate: No, I don’t think so.

    Abe: No?

    Kate: No. So I thought I’d come by and talk to roman, you know? Is he around?

    Abe: Um…


    Kate: Hey.

    Roman: Hi.

    Kate: Um, I wonder if you have a minute to talk.

    Johnny: [Chuckles] Hello, paulina.

    Paulina: Oh, johnny!

    Johnny: You’re safe to go home now. Chanel announced her decision.

    Paulina: From the look on your face, you’re not here to celebrate.

    Johnny: [Chuckles] No, definitely not. She, um– she wants to be with allie.

    Allie: I am the happiest woman in the world right now.

    Chanel: No, I am.

    Allie: Dupree, I want you so bad, but it just feels a little bit weird to celebrate when johnny’s miserable.

    Chanel: Yeah, I know what you mean, but how long do you think we should wait before we, you know, celebrate?

    Allie: I don’t know. It feels like we’ve kind of been waiting forever.

    Chanel: Yeah and the whole point of being together is to really be together.

    Allie: When you’re right, you’re right.

    Chanel: I think we’ve waited long enough.

    [Tender music]

    Chad: I shouldn’t have warned you about working with alex. I’m sure he’s nothing like ej.

    Sonny: No, you were honest. You know, I get along with alex just fine. It’s just, you know, I’ve never been my big brother’s boss before.

    Chad: Tony, what’s going on? What? Are you sure? Yeah, thanks for letting me know.

    Sonny: What’d he say? Is everything okay?

    Chad: It’s my, brother jake. He was shot.

    Sonny: What? Is he okay?

    Chad: He’s dead.

    Gabi: Oh, you haven’t heard? Ava just told me that she and jake got married.

    Ej: Bloody hell. When did this happen?

    Ava: If you’re talking about me and jake, we were married this morning.

    Kayla: I’m sorry, ava. I did not know.

    Ava: No, you know, everything was happening so fast, it didn’t even occur to me to tell you, but jake and I were husband and wife when he was…

    Kayla: Well, I’m sorry to bring this up now, but there are some forms that need to be signed by jake’s legal next of kin.

    Rolf: Are you ready to go?

    Kristen: Wait, wait, wait. Rolf, rolf, rolf, rolf, not until you tell me what sort of help you need from me.

    Rolf: There’s no time for explanations! We must act now!

    Kristen: [Sighs] I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

    Roman: I don’t have time to talk, ’cause I just found out my broiler is on the fritz, and to be honest, I don’t have a hell of a lot to say to you.

    Abe: Well, don’t give up hope. He’ll come around.

    Kate: That’s what paulina said to me.

    Abe: Yeah, well, she’s a wise woman. You know, I did talk to roman and I told him he should give you another chance.

    Kate: Well, thanks, but I doubt that he’s going to do that.

    Abe: I don’t doubt it at all. Just give it some time.

    Kate: [Sighs]

    Paulina: This one’s on me.

    Johnny: You didn’t have to do that.

    Paulina: No, no, I wanted to. Between us, I was pulling for you, kid.

    [Tender music]

    Chanel: I love you so much, horton.

    Allie: I love you too.

    Sonny: Chad, I don’t know what to say.

    Chad: Yeah, me neither. I mean, I wasn’t that close with him, but he was abby’s friend. Now, both of them?

    Gabi: Nice try, ej, but no cigar.

    Ej: I have no idea what you’re talking about.

    Gabi: Sure you do. You were about to sign those next of kin papers. Now you can’t get your hands on jake’s shares of dimera stock.

    Ej: Hmm. Don’t be so sure. This marriage came out of nowhere and is awfully convenient. If you don’t think I’ll get to the bottom of this, then you don’t know me very well.

    Kayla: Oh, the orderlies are here to pick up jake’s body and take it to the morgue. When you’ve made your funeral arrangements, he’ll be released to you.

    Ava: Funeral arrangements, on my wedding day.

    [Suspenseful music]

    Rolf: Ah, jake. It is you. Ready for your next adventure? [Chuckles] Shall we?

    Kristen: [Sighs] I really hope you didn’t lose your touch while you were in the slammer.

    Transcript provided by Suzanne

    Brooke: Finn is alive?

    Thomas: Wait, how?

    Liam: We– we know. It’s a shock.

    Eric: You’re absolutely certain of this? It’s not some kind of a hoax or something?

    Hope: No, no, no, it’s– it’s not a hoax. But what it is, is a miracle.

    Eric: Well, of course it is. But– but, I mean–

    Liam: You have a million questions, right? Trust me. So did hope and I.

    Hope: Yeah, we– we still don’t know all of the details, but–

    Thomas: I– I– I don’t understand.

    Liam: Well, it’s– it’s like hope said, it– it really is a miracle. I mean, finn did not die in that alley. Has he been through hell? Yes.

    Hope: But he is very much alive.

    Bill: Finn, you’ve been through a horrific ordeal. I think it’d be a good idea if you try to get some shut-eye.

    Finn: Too excited. The closer we get to monaco, I just… steffy and the kids, they were all that kept me going all those days and nights in that room. Sheila refusing to even let me call steffy and tell her I was alive.

    Bill: Must have been torture.

    Finn: I just wanted to hear her voice, you know? And for her to hear mine. So she knew that I was doing everything that I could to get back to her and hayes and kelly. And it won’t be long now.

    Flavia sofia: It’s an honor to meet you.

    Taylor: Yes. You, too.

    Ridge: Dr. Chevalier. Thanks for being here.

    Flavia: Please call me flavia.

    Ridge: Oh, okay. Um, well, as you can imagine, we’re very anxious to see steffy.

    Taylor: Yes. Uh, we thought that she would be with you. Uh, is there a reason she’s not?

    Flavia: Uh, first and foremost, I want to assure you that your daughter is receiving the best care possible.

    Ridge: That’s great. And no one’s questioning that. We just, uh– we would like to spend some time with her.

    Taylor: Yeah.

    Ridge: We came a long way.

    Taylor: Yeah. Is– is she okay? Uh, has she had another setback?

    Flavia: No, no, no. No– no– nothing like that.

    Ridge: So, where’s steffy?

    Flavia: Unfortunately, mr. Forrester, I do not know where your daughter is.

    Eric: Well, uh, does steffy know? Has she been told?

    Hope: Uh, no one’s been able to get in touch with her so far.

    Thomas: Yeah, what about my mom and dad? I mean, they should be in monaco by now. Do they have any idea what happened?

    Liam: Can’t get a hold of them either.

    Brooke: My god. When everybody finally does find out…

    Thomas: It’s just– it’s so crazy. Finn’s really alive.

    Brooke: Oh!

    Taylor: So, you don’t know where our daughter is?

    Flavia: No, not at this right moment. But don’t be alarmed. Uh, steffy’s still struggling with the death of her husband and her own shooting, but she is making quite some progress.

    Ridge: And that’s fantastic. And of course, we want to believe that, but in the same breath you’re telling us that she’s missing.

    Flavia: Maybe I give you the wrong impression. Steffy sometimes, uh, takes time for herself to help with her healing. Uh, so at this very moment, mr. Forrester, I don’t know where your daughter is. I’m sorry.

    Finn: I left several messages for steffy. She hasn’t called back. I’m not even sure if they’re going through.

    Bill: Here. Try again.

    Finn: Uh, hey, steffy, honey, it’s– it’s finn. Um, I– I– I know that it’s shocking, but it’s– it’s– it’s true, honey, I’m alive. Um, I’m– I’m not sure if you got my earlier messages, but I’m– I’m coming to be with you, babe. I’m on a plane right now headed to monaco. And, um, we’re going to be together soon. I promise. Uh, I– I– just– I love you so much. We hit the bike trails every weekend

    Liam: And, uh, yeah, that’s, um– I think that’s pretty much everything we know at this point. Finn and li are both relatively okay.

    Brooke: Thanks to your father. If he hadn’t found li in that alley and brought her back to his place, this would have ended so differently.

    Thomas: So, he’s– he’s flying to monaco right now?

    Liam: Yeah. To– to reunite finn with steffy and the kids.

    Eric: Can you imagine what that’s going to be like for her? I mean, look what– how it affected us. And the babies, oh, my god! I mean, that little boy is going to have his father back. And– and kelly.

    Liam: Oh, you’re not kidding about kelly. I mean, my– finn is so special to my daughter. She’s– she’s going to flip out because I know how much she missed him.

    Thomas: The kids are going to be stoked, but steff… the reaction when she sees him for the first– well, wow. I mean, that’s just– oh, it’ll be priceless.

    Bill: Pilot says we’ll be landing soon. I’ll try ridge again, give him the good news about you. Hopefully I’ll get through this time.

    Taylor: Yes. Thank you. And if you hear from steffy, please let us know. We’re very anxious to speak with her.

    Flavia: Of course. Bye.

    Ridge: Thank you, doctor. Not how I thought this was going to go.

    Taylor: No!

    Ridge: So, we’re just going to wait for steffy? That’s it?

    Taylor: I– I don’t know.

    [ Phone ringing ]

    Ridge: What does he want?

    Taylor: Who?


    Taylor: Oh, answer it or don’T.

    Ridge: Yes. What do you want?

    Bill: Finally. I’ve been trying to reach you.

    Ridge: What, what’s going on?

    Bill: Taylor there with you?

    Ridge: Yes.

    Bill: Put me on speaker.

    Ridge: Dude, I don’t have time for your games right now. Please. What do you want?

    Bill: Just do it, forrester.

    Taylor: Huh? Me?

    Ridge: Okay.

    Taylor: Bill. What? What is it? Why are you calling?

    Bill: I want you both to brace yourselves.

    I have some unbelievable news.

    Best news ever.

    Ridge: What is it? I’m on my way to monaco. I’m on the jet. I have a very special passenger with me. Your son-in-law.

    Finn is alive.


    Ridge: What are you– what are you saying?

    Bill: Mother of all shocks, I know. I’ll let him tell you for himself.

    Finn: Ridge, taylor.

    It’s me, I’m alive.

    Taylor: Finn? Finn…

    Finn: Uh, it’s a really long story. My mother, li, she– she kept me alive and she nursed me back to health. Uh, but sheila got involved, and it’s– I’ll just– I can explain it all later, but I’m– I’m desperate to get a hold of steffy.

    Ridge, are you there?

    Ridge: Uh, yeah. I’m–

    Taylor: We just can’t believe we’re talking to you!

    Finn: Have you seen steffy?

    Taylor: We– call her–

    Ridge: We’ve been trying to call her, we just got here– yeah. Uh– yeah, so have I. I just keep getting her voicemail.

    Ridge: When, um– when are you landing?

    Finn: Soon.

    Ridge: Okay, I’ll– I’ll– I’ll text you where the hotel is, where we’re staying and– and we’ll see you then.

    Finn: What about kelly and hayes?

    Ridge: I will get them here.

    Taylor: Oh, finn, hayes and kelly are going to be so happy to see you. We all are. This is a miracle! You’re alive!

    Finn: See you soon.

    Bill: Steffy’s obviously not with them.

    Finn: No. But that’s not going to stop me. I’ll find steffy and we’ll be together soon.

    Steffy: Why, finn? Why? You said that you would shave your eyebrow off

    Liam: So my dad’s plane should have landed in monaco by now.

    Hope: Oh, looks like there might be a happy ending to the story after all.

    Eric: It never occurred to me that there would be. You know, I– I– I knew that my granddaughter would power through all this, that she would get on with her life. But I knew there’d be a hole in her heart that would never get filled. And then…

    Thomas: It’s amazing how quickly things can change. You know, steffy’s world’s about to be wonderful again.

    Brooke: And I can just imagine how ridge and taylor are going to feel about this. After they watched their daughter suffer so terribly.

    Taylor: Okay, I’m still trying to process all of this. Okay. I– I know that we just heard finn’s voice and– and he is on his way–

    Ridge: How is even possible?

    Taylor: I don’t know. I don’t know! My god, this is the last thing that we expected. You know what I expect– I’m not going to say what I expect, but–

    Ridge: Okay.

    Taylor: Finn is on his way here, he’s alive.

    Ridge: I know. I know.

    Taylor: He’s coming to get steffy!

    [ Knocking on door ] Ridge.

    Finn: Hey.

    Ridge: Come here. Oh.

    Taylor: It’s really you!

    Finn: Yeah, it’s, uh– it’s me.

    Taylor: Finn…

    Finn: Hi.

    Taylor: Finn…

    Finn: Hey.

    Taylor: Oh, my…

    Finn: Hi.

    Taylor: Oh, thank god. God is so good.

    Finn: Yeah. I’m going to leave you all alone to celebrate. Oh, bill, hey, bill, wait a second. Um… uh, thanks for, uh, everything.

    Bill: No thanks necessary.

    Ridge: Thank you, bill. I’m in your debt.

    Bill: Well, I guess you– no, ridge. I’m just glad I could help.

    Taylor: Finn, finn, are– are– are you okay physically? Are you–

    Finn: Oh, yeah, no, I’m– I’m really good. I’m– I’m fine–

    Ridge: We have so many questions. You–

    Finn: No, I know, I know. And, uh, I will answer them all. I swear. I– I promise. I just– I– I need to see steffy, kelly and hayes.

    Taylor: Of course. Of course.

    Finn: Yeah.

    Taylor: We’re trying to get in touch with her. She’s not answering her phone and we’re– we’re texting her. I– I don’t know where she is.

    Finn: Okay, what about the kids? Are they–

    Taylor: They– they’re around, they’re around. They’re going to be so happy to see you.

    Finn: No, I mean, I can’t wait. I just– they’re all I’ve been thinking about, you know–

    [ Knocking on door ] Every moment, just like–

    Ridge: I’ll get it.

    Finn: Thought of them. Give them a hug and–

    Taylor: Yes.

    Finn: See them again or–

    Taylor: And you’re going to, finn. Finn, after everything– after everything, you’re here and you’re alive. Look at you.

    Ridge: Guess who’s here.

    Taylor: Look! I’m steve.

    Finn: I just can’t believe how big you’ve gotten, honey. Look at you. And I love–

    Taylor: Aw, hayes was so tired. He really needed a nap.

    Finn: Oh, god, yeah. Thank you.

    Taylor: Yeah, of course.

    Finn: Oh, my gosh, come here. I have missed you, bug. Like crazy.

    Kelly: We missed you, too,

    this much.

    Finn: Yeah.

    Kelly: Don’t ever go away again. Okay?

    Finn: I won’T.

    Kelly: Promise?

    Finn: Yes, I promise.

    Kelly: Does mommy know you’re here? She’s been so sad without you.

    Taylor: Oh, kelly, we have all been sad without your daddy here.

    Ridge: But not anymore. Only happy faces, especially for your mom.

    Kelly: Why isn’t mommy here with us?

    Finn: Oh, sweetie, um, she will be soon. Okay? As– as soon as I go get her.

    Kelly: You’re leaving? You promised.

    Taylor: Oh, kelly, it’s okay. He’s just going to go get mommy and come right back.

    Finn: Yeah, and we’ll all be together again as a family. Does that sound good?

    Ridge: Oh, I think that’s a yes.

    Finn: Oh, my god. Um, okay, I’m– I’m– I’m going to go find her. Uh, but I– I don’t– I don’t have a phone. Can I borrow your phone?

    Taylor: Well, of course you can, but do you think that’s a good idea? I mean, steffy could be anywhere.

    Finn: I remember her mentioning a favorite spot. I’ll check it out. Just– I just can’t stay here. I’m going to be back real soon, okay? Okay.

    Finn: I’m going to go find her. Gonna go find your mom.

    Hope: Can you imagine when the word finally gets out how thrilled everyone is going to be? I mean, here at forrester, at the hospital?

    Thomas: Especially at the hospital. I mean, all of his colleagues, they’re going to see this friend that they thought that they lost, but also this– this wonderful colleague that saves lives. And they’re gonna realize that he’s actually not gone.

    Eric: He’s going to want to get back to work, too.

    Thomas: Yeah.

    Eric: He’s going to want to get back to a normal life, but, uh, he’s going to need some time. He needs to take time with his– his wife and his kids they deserve that.

    Liam: Mm, yeah, they do. And steffy’s going to insist on it, trust me.

    Brooke: I mean, this is just so amazing. Steffy has her husband back and their family can be together again. I mean, this is such an unbelievably beautiful blessing. It really is in so many ways.

    Thomas: Yeah.

    Taylor: Okay, I just updated flavia. She knows everything that’s going on. Oh, my goodness. What are we doing here?

    Kelly: We’re drawing pictures, grandma.

    Ridge: Yeah, grandma, what do you think we’re drawing?

    Taylor: Let’s see. You know what? Let’s see, I see a mommy and I see a daddy, and I see two beautiful little kids.

    Ridge: Hmm.

    Taylor: Hmm.

    Ridge: And whose family do you think this is?

    Taylor: Hmm. I bet it’s yours and your little brother’S.

    Ridge: I told you she’s smart. We’ve got a winner.

    Taylor: Everybody looks so happy.

    Kelly: We are happy, grandma.

    Ridge: And you know why they’re happy, grandma? Because they’re gonna be a family again. Soon as mommy and daddy find each other. Steffy.

    Young & The Restless Update

    Recap written by Christine

    Chance went to Newman Enterprises looking for Victoria and found Nick in her office instead. Nick was looking at his phone, and Chance said that news on Locke’s death hadn’t leaked if that’s what Nick was searching for. Chance was surprised Nick was at work. Nick only came by to pick up a file. Chance wanted to talk to Victoria and Nick. Nick said Victoria wasn’t around. She’d gone to pick up her kids from camp, then she was taking them to a water park. He said it would be hard because she had to tell the kids that their stepfather was dead. Chance knew that would be tough, but wondered why Victoria didn’t have Billy pick the kids up instead, given the ongoing investigation. Nick said Billy was away on business. He asked why Victoria needed to stay in town, when she didn’t do anything wrong. Chance noted that he never said Victoria did something wrong. Nick thought Chance kind of implied it. Chance was hoping to get some insight into Ashland’s frame of mind. Nick thought he made it clear last night that Ashland was in a complete rage when he went after Victoria. Chance asked if Ashland seemed to be suicidal. Nick didn’t know, since he wasn’t there when Ashland left. Nick said Ashland was homicidal when he went after Victoria, then he turned on Nick. Nick didn’t even realize Ashland was alive, let alone capable of driving a car.

    Nikki entered the office. She was grateful Chance came to Victoria’s aid and found Ashland so quickly. He said he was doing his job. Nikki was sure Chance understood the terrible toll this was taking on Abby’s siblings. She asked for time with her son and sent her love to Abby and Dominic. Chance left. Nikki hugged Nick and said she was so grateful he was there for his sister and sorry for what he’d been through. He didn’t feel like he deserved thanks. Nikki thought they needed to leave and talk in a place that didn’t remind them of the dreaded Newman-Locke regime.

    Nikki took Nick to the park. She hoped he knew he wasn’t responsible for Ashland’s death. He didn’t know that. She said he probably saved his sister’s life. He began to recount the events of that night, but Nikki said she already knew everything. Nikki could relate to the horror Nick felt, because she thought she killed JT. Even though she knew she was justified, she’d blamed herself and felt haunted by it. She said she’d been defending Victoria, just as Nick was. She would still do the same thing again in a heartbeat. He said he would too. She reiterated that she was grateful he was there, because otherwise, they might be planning Victoria’s funeral while Ashland was walking the streets. Nick just couldn’t shake the visual of Ashland lying on the ground. Nikki told Nick he wasn’t responsible for what happened to Ashland. She didn’t mourn Ashland. She said Ashland got up and drove off, and it wasn’t Nick’s fault he died in a car accident.

    Kyle and Jack were in the Abbott living room. Kyle said he and Summer were up all night talking about how to tell Harrison that Ashland died. Jack knew that was the hardest thing in the world. Jack felt heartbroken for Harrison – as much as they didn’t like Ashland, Harrison was crazy about him. Kyle said even worse, Harrison and Ashland didn’t get a chance to say goodbye, and Kyle knew how excruciating that could be. He hated how much loss his son had experienced in his young life – first Tara, now Ashland. Jack said Harrison gained wonderful parents in Kyle and Summer. Summer came downstairs and overheard the discussion. As much as Kyle despised Ashland, he wished Ashland was alive, so that Harrison wouldn’t have to go through this. Jack remembered traveling to Switzerland to tell Kyle that his mother died. Kyle said that day still haunted him, and that was why he knew Harrison would likely never forget this day.

    Jack offered to help, but Kyle thought he and Summer should be the ones to tell their son the news. He asked Jack to stick around to help Harrison heal afterward. Jack agreed. Jack went upstairs to get his grandson. Summer and Kyle worried over Harrison. Kyle talked about how hard it was to lose a parent as a child. He wondered if his mother ever considered the pain she would put him through, the way he was considering Harrison’s pain now. Summer understood if Kyle wasn’t ready to do this. He said that he knew what it was like to feel this pain, but he also knew you could get through it. He could do this for his son. Summer made it clear they were in this together. Jack brought Harrison into the room. Summer and Kyle gently explained accidents and death to Harrison and that Father died. Diane came, and Jack told her it wasn’t a good time, but Harrison saw his Dee Dee and tried to run over to her. Kyle pulled Harrison onto his lap and asked if he understood that Father was dead and wouldn’t be around anymore. “No, Father told me he would come back,” Harrison replied.

    Summer took Diane outside and told her about the accident. Diane was shocked. Summer asked Diane to leave, because Harrison had a lot to process, and this was bringing up a lot of bad memories for Kyle. Diane thought that was exactly why she should stay. She begged to go back inside and try to help. Later, Diane went inside and told Harrison that she knew his Mommy and Daddy shared some sad news with him about how Father got hurt and he wouldn’t be back. She noted that she and Harrison just saw Ashland in the park, and he’d said he had to go away on a trip, but he’d be back soon. She explained that sometimes people’s plans changed. Her voice broke as she assured Harrison that his father loved him and would be here if he could be. She asked him to point to his heart. Kyle told Harrison that his father was still in his heart, along with all the people he loved. Diane was going to leave, but Harrison didn’t want her to go. Diane suggested she could take Harrison outside. Summer thought it would be nice for Harrison to have time with his friend. Kyle revealed that Diane was his mother, and Harrison’s grandmother, like Jack was his grandfather. Kyle said Dee Dee loved Harrison, and they were happy she was here.

    At the park, Mariah gave Tessa a pep talk before her surgery. Even though the doctor was the best, Tessa said she was still nervous. Mariah asked what Tessa was really worried about. Tessa was afraid to say it out loud, as if that would increase the chances of it happening. Mariah convinced Tessa she’d feel better if she said it. Tessa fought back tears. She was afraid the surgery wouldn’t be a success and she’d lose her one true talent – singing – and her musical career would be over. Mariah said that was far from Tessa’s only talent, and her music career wasn’t over because she was an amazing songwriter. Mariah said Tessa was good at making people feel seen and accepted or making them laugh. Mariah joked that Tessa was bad at washing dishes, and Tessa said that was why her career as a barista was short-lived. Mariah added that the thing Tessa was best at was loving Mariah. Tessa was glad because that was the thing that meant most to her and the thing that changed her from the hot mess she used to be. Mariah vowed to spend the rest of her life telling Tessa about the incredible gifts she had. Mariah was also sure the procedure would go well and that Tessa would emerge from this with a stronger voice. Mariah said she’d take all Tessa’s fears, so she could focus on the positive and healing. They hugged and kissed.

    At Crimson Lights, Adam ordered a black coffee with an espresso shot. He saw a package and asked Sharon about it. She said that she put it together for Tessa, who was having minor surgery. Adam got a call and stepped away to take it. It was confirmation of his flight out of town. Sharon overheard and said she guessed that meant he and Sally didn’t work things out. He asked her why she thought that would be a possibility. At first, Sharon covered, but then she said they were all adults, and she wasn’t going to have a secret conversation with his girlfriend about him. He reminded her that Sally wasn’t his girlfriend. She was sorry to hear that. She explained that Sally confided in her about Adam. Sharon was struck by the way Sally seemed to love and accept Adam, flaws and all. He said Sally would be better hating him. Sharon was sure it would be easier for Adam if he succeeded in running Sally off forever. Adam was sure Sharon saw what a spectacle Sally made of herself – if anyone from Newman saw that, her days would be numbered. Sharon bet Sally was aware of that, and yet she did it anyway. She asked him why he thought that was. Adam thought Sally’s priorities were out of whack. Sharon said that wasn’t for Adam to decide. He said it actually was. Sally spent her whole life seeking professional respect and success, and now that she’d gotten them, he wouldn’t let her lose it, especially when his relationships were destined to crash and burn. Sharon suggested Sally could be the person Adam was destined to spend the rest of his life with. Sharon thought she could be objective, because she was one of the few people Adam could count on. He promised not to burden Sharon with that responsibility. He said he didn’t need to be with anyone right now. She thought everyone needed people to care about them. She felt it was good for him to have Sally in his life. She’d encouraged Sally to convince him that he was more important to her than any job. Sharon asked if Adam hardened his heart to Sally.

    Adam said he had feelings for Sally – past tense. Sharon didn’t believe Adam’s feelings were in the past. She asked why he was cutting out someone who cared about him, saw the best in him and might even bring the best out in him. He said it was complicated. She told him that when you found someone you matched with, it shouldn’t be complicated and you shouldn’t take it for granted. He said this was what was best for everyone. He’d booked a trip to Vegas. She asked why he’d want to go back there, given his history. She noted that she brought him home from Vegas. She asked how long he was staying. He said he was leaving now. Tessa and Mariah arrived, and Adam wished her luck with the procedure and left.

    Tessa wasn’t allowed to have anything before her procedure, but she really wanted a hot mocha. Sharon understood that. She said after everything she’d been through, medical stuff gave her the jitters. Tessa said she was less nervous thanks to Mariah. Sharon gave Tessa the care package and said she was going to stock their fridge with soothing foods and drinks. Tessa felt lucky to have a mother in law who felt like a mom. She kissed Sharon’s cheek, then she went upstairs. Mariah’s happy facade fell, and she admitted she was scared to death about today. Sharon was so sorry. She had no idea Mariah was scared. Mariah said the procedure was routine, but seeing how afraid Tessa was made her afraid too. She couldn’t bear the thought of Tessa to be in pain. Sharon hugged Mariah and said she knew the feeling, but that was marriage. She shared some encouraging words, then Tessa came down. Mariah kissed her hand.

    Nick went to Crimson Lights, and Sharon told him he just missed the girls, who left for Tessa’s appointment. He said he’d send flowers to Tessa and Mariah’s apartment. Sharon noticed something was bothering Nick. He said he came here last night looking for her, and he ran into Sally instead. And he’d just had a conversation with his mom that wasn’t as comforting as she’d intended. Sharon assured Nick she was here now. He said this hadn’t hit the news, but Ashland died last night. He told her the whole story. He didn’t understand how Ashland got up and left the house. Sharon knew from the situation with JT that you could think someone died, but be mistaken. Sharon said Nikki thought she killed JT, just like Nick thought he killed Ashland, but they didn’t. She thought he was lucky to find out the truth now instead of having to wait months to find out, like Nikki did.

    Nick said Ashland didn’t have a pulse, and Victoria tried CPR. Sharon was sure Nikki told him how they’d been in that situation with JT. She thought that it was clear that if Ashland was there when Nick left and gone when Nick came back, he wasn’t dead. She wondered if Nick was saying that the head injury caused the accident. Nick said the way Victor showed up just after they discovered Ashland was gone just didn’t make sense. Nick was trying to fight the feeling, but when Victor was involved, things tended to get very complicated. Nick had asked Victor what went on, but he knew he couldn’t trust his dad to tell the truth.

    Chance ran into Adam at the park. Adam mentioned he was on his way to Vegas, and he’d play a round on Chance’s behalf. Chance was surprised Adam’s family didn’t tell him about Ashland. Adam said he was permanently out of the loop where they were concerned. He asked what Ashland did now. Chance said Ashland died in an accident, at least that was the official version. Adam wondered if there was another version of the story. Chance got a text, and he had to leave. He said he hoped Adam came back from Vegas soon, because his family might need the support. Chance left. Adam called and canceled his flight.

     look at you. There’s the guy. Ha, in the flesh. It’s been, what, a few months since I’ve seen you in person? Yeah, what can I say? You asked me to assess the west coast families situation. What did you find out? So far, all’s quiet on the western front. Alright. See, I knew they’d take their foot off the gas once I handled that situation at charlie’S. Not so sure the robbery had anything to do with the west, but the good news is, things have died down. That means I get to put my full attention on finding a replacement — somebody to fill jason’s shoes. I think I may have found someone. I’m tired of sonny taking whatever he wants. It’s time he faced some consequences.

    [ Door opens ]

    [ Door closes ] What are you doing here? I’m telling you for the last time, stop following me. I don’t know if he’s following my dad’s orders or if he’s just green and trying to show off, but sonny’s new errand boy won’t stop harassing me, and it ends today! No law against taking the stairs. Last time I checked, you don’t own them. Thank you, willow, for letting me vent. It helps so much to know that you really understand what happened to your mom was truly an accident. Still, hearing about it can’t be easy for you. No easier for you to talk about it, I imagine. I mean, accidentally hitting someone with your car — that’s got to be traumatic for you. Yeah, it is, for sure. Especially when those tabloid people start implying that I was driving under the influence. Well, those jerks did not get to me.

    [ Sighs ] I don’t know what I did to deserve a friend like you. I have hurt you in so many ways — always unintentionally, but, still, you — you have never wavered in supporting me. A lot of people would just walk away. The feeling is mutual. I hope you know that. Because I know you’ll have my back, just like I have yours.

    [ Both chuckle ] Wiley is so lucky to have you as his mother. And so will this little one. Tj: We have to go over the rest of the results. You have an elevated white blood cell count. That’s it?

    [ Sighs ] Oh. I know from nurses’ training that it’s normal to have an elevated white blood cell count during pregnancy. And that’s true. Willow, from what I see, I don’t — I don’t think this is related to your pregnancy.

    [ Sighs ] I have to get the hell out of here.

    [ Sighs ] Yes.

    [ Door opens ] You conniving little whore. As the saying goes, it takes one to know one. You’re not going to try to talk your way out of this? So unlike your normal lying ways. But even for you, this… this is a new low — sleeping with your boyfriend’s father. That is beyond tacky. Mm. Well, was it “beyond tacky” when you were having an affair with morgan corinthos and then slept with his father? How old do you think avery should be when you decide to inform her that she’s the product of hate sex? How could you know about those things? You didn’t think I’d do my research? I like to know what I’m dealing with. Where exactly do you think you’re going? I may have had sex with nikolas, but you’re going to still get what you want, ava — I’m leaving town and you’re never going to have to see me again. You’re not going anywhere. Not until you pay for all the damage you’ve done. Judge young: Counselor, you may call your first witness. Thank you, your honor. I got here as quickly as I could. The defense calls spencer cassadine. Proceed, ms. Miller. What the hell is happening here? I have no idea. Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth? I do. One prilosec otc in the morning blocks excess acid production for a full 24 hours. Unlike pepcid, which stops working after 9. 24 hour protection. Prilosec otc one pill, 24 hours, zero heartburn.

Designed with depend’s smoothest fabric, the unique shapewear technology adapts to your body, providing invisible comfort and unbeatable protection. Try depend. So you’ve been looking for candidates without me? I’ll try not to take that personally.

    [ Grunts, panting ] No. He’s — he’s —

    [ Chuckles ] This guy kind of fell into my lap — low level kind of guy working for me, you know. His name’s dex. He’s a military vet. But where’d you find him? I know you ain’t running “help wanted” ads in the classifieds. Well, when chet was away, dex was running the gym. Hmm. What do you like about him? He’s hungry. It’s like he’s chasing something more. So he reminds you of you?

    [ Laughs ] Not just me. Mm. I mean, he’s like stone. Jason. Well, far be it for me to question your judgment, which I won’t, but allow me to question dex’S. There’s no shortage of people who want to get into this business, thinking they know what they’re getting themselves into. But you and I both know there’s no way of knowing what it actually does to someone until they live it. Okay, guys. Hey, that’s enough. That’s enough. Why don’t you just back off michael — alright? Go for a walk. Fine. Whatever. See you around.

    [ Door closes ]

    [ Sighs ] Look, uh, brando, I appreciate you stepping in, but I could’ve handled this. Look, I’m confused. What — dex just followed you to the hospital to try to intimidate you? I have no idea. Other than m-maybe he thinks he’s impressing my father. I have no idea what this guy wants from me. Yeah, maybe you’re right. Maybe he’s just trying to impress your dad. I can backchannel to sonny that you’re having issues with dex. No, no, no, no. No. Absolutely not. Just trying to help. No, hey, I appreciate that. Okay? Just — [ Sighs ] I don’t want sonny involved in this. Besides, you have bigger things to focus on right now. Honestly, willow, I don’t know what I would do without your friendship. Willow, hey. Hi. I’m ready for you. We’ll talk soon. Okay.

    [ Cellphone chimes ] Am I keeping my counseling appointment today?

    [ Door closes ] Thanks for coming back. I just need another blood sample. Oh, why do we need another blood test? To make sure the first one wasn’t an anomaly.

    [ Clears throat ] Doctors aren’t usually the ones who take blood samples. You’re my friend, okay? Sue me if I’m a little invested. Raised white blood cell counts can indicate any number of things, but it’s clear that you’re worried about something specific. Can you tell me what it is you’re looking for? Well, well. It seems that your, um, prince charming has finally decided to be honest and tell you he’s just another slimy frog. I’ve had you pegged right from the very start. You’re selfish, entitled, but you’re very, very smart. I’ll give you that. You helped spencer torture me for months, and it all came quite naturally to you, didn’t it? I know spencer says he put you up to setting my car on fire, but I saw that look of fear in his eyes. Spencer didn’t do that. He’s selfish, he’s self-centered, he’s self-serving, but he’s not a psychopath. Not like you. And you couldn’t just set it on fire, right? You had to go a step further. You had to put my dead daughter’s I.D. Next to it. I mean, that is just [Scoffs] Sadistic. And you made that revenge porn video of joss and cam. Again, only a demented mind like yours would do something like that. And you framed trina to take the fall. All of that — it wasn’t enough, was it? You had to seduce my husband. You had to trick my husband into falling into bed with you.

    [ Laughs ] Oh, nikolas hardly had to be seduced. I mean, it’s all thanks to the shrewish ways that you’ve been treating him. Every day you came up with new and creative ways to emasculate him. You made him feel like less of a man. All I had to do was be there to catch him when he fell. Spencer, we danced around this during your previous testimony, so let’s just cut to the chase, shall we? Do you believe that trina robinson filmed and distributed an intimate video of josslyn jacks and cameron webber? No, I do not. I know for a fact that trina couldn’t have distributed that video. Spencer’s defending our daughter? Can you tell the court why you are so certain? I know for a fact that trina didn’t distribute that video. Because she was with me when the video was released via e-mail.

    I-I know you don’t have firm answers yet, but…I want to know what it is you’re worried about.

    [ Knock on door ] Oh. Hey. Sorry to interrupt. The nurse said that you were in here, willow. Oh. So I — you’re not interrupting. I’M…done here.

    [ Sighs ] I’ll be right back. I’m a little confused. I thought you had an ob appointment. Why was tj in here and not — not britt? Oh, it’s — [ Scoffs ] It’s nothing. Tj was just… being a good friend.

    [ Breathes sharply ] That’s all. Nikolas felt unappreciated. In name, you were husband and wife, and yet you were sleeping in separate bedrooms. Who does that? You drove him away, just like you drove away every single person you cared about. Whatever research you’ve done on me, you don’t know me. Oh, but don’t I? I know you turned your back on your brother right before he died. I loved my brother very much. Julian was self-destructive. I had no choice but to walk away. Hm, just like you had to walk away from kiki right after you found out that she was also sleeping with your boyfriend, griffin monroe? I am hardly the catalyst for what happened with nikolas. You do see that the common denominator in all of those twisted scenarios is you. Alright! That’s enough! Don’t try to make this about me. Nikolas is spencer’s father, so what, you thought you were going to trade up to more money by targeting him? Mm, one more time — I did not target nikolas. He came running to me. I know better. I know you’re a stalker. You and spencer played your sick mind game with me. You made me fear for my daughter’s life, and the ways that you attacked me… you know, all this time, I thought that you were just my — my stepson’s obnoxious, entitled girlfriend. So why, then, does this all feel so very personal? Why do you hate me so much? Oh, there has to be more to this story. There has to be. Are you saying that you were with trina at the moment that e-mail was distributed to the pcu listserv? Yes, that’s exactly what I’m saying. Okay. Well, correct me if I’m wrong, but on that day, you were serving a sentence at the spring ridge minimum security prison, were you not? Yes, that’s correct. Okay. So was trina visiting you in prison on that day? No. No. Well, you’re gonna have to help all of us out here. Spencer, if you were with trina in person, but it was not at the prison, where were you? I arranged for a kind of, uh, off-the-books day pass to leave prison. You might say trina saw me when I escaped.

    All I did was hold the bag.

    [ Laughs ] This a bad time? You want me to come back later? No, actually, it’s a good time, ’cause we were just talking about you, and it’s a good time for you guys to meet. This is brick. This is dex. Dex, brick. Uh, he’s a trusted friend. Second in command. Nice to meet you, brick. Likewise, dex. I just wanted to give you an update on that thing we discussed, when you have a free moment. Whatever you got to say, you can say it in front of brick, ’cause he — he’s like family to me. Understand? Sure. So how’s our good friend the photographer doing this afternoon? He’s not going to be selling anything to anyone again.

    [ Laughs ]

    [ Chuckles ] And he definitely won’t be opening his mouth. I made sure of that before the cops showed up. You talked — you talked to the cops?! Can you tell how excited I am? Yeah, I can. [ Laughs ] I am, too. I just — I can’t stop thinking about how lucky we are. Everything is going to be different this time, you know? We — we’re both going to be there from the very start, and…

    [ Sighs ] And we’re not going to miss any moments with our child.

    [ Door closes ] Hey, there you are. What are you doing back here? Um, I felt guilty after leaving you behind. I just — are you going to be late? No, uh… no, I’m not going. Why — why not? Well, I ran into willow and, um… it turns out, the photographer — the one who harassed me and got in his car and chased us, which led me to hit harmony — well, he is here at G.H., And it kind of forced willow and me to unpack a lot of things that we needed to discuss. But she was very sympathetic, and in a way, it was therapeutic. Okay, I understand. Um, why don’t we reschedule your therapy appointment? No. I’m all talked out. Why didn’t trina tell us any of this? She’s probably protecting cassadine.

    [ Scoffs lightly ] I have no idea what’s going on. Me neither. But maybe spencer is doing the right thing for once.

    [ Gavel pounds ] Judge young: Quiet in the courtroom! Ms. Miller, continue, please. Thank you, your honor. So, to clarify, spencer, you escaped from prison. I planned on going back. I did go back. Objection, your honor. There’s no way to verify this. Well, that’s the same as any witness’s testimony. Now it’s up to the jury to determine its veracity. Judge young: Overruled, but get to the point soon. Spencer, how were you able to leave spring ridge undetected? I’m not proud of this. But someone was bribed to look the other way. What was so important on that day that you arranged for this “unofficial hall pass”?

    [ Voice breaking ] It was the anniversary of my mother’s death. You see, my mother, uh, died when I was a baby, so I never met her.

    [ Breathes shakily ] The anniversary of her death is very important to me. As a boy, I always laid flowers on her grave. Then, for the last several years, I was away at boarding school in france, so I couldn’t do that. So to be back here in port charles on that anniversary and not be able to honor her with flowers, it was so… …incredibly painful. I went to the graveyard to see her. I never meant for anyone to see me. But that’s when I saw trina at the cemetery, working on a project for pcu. Your honor, my associate is currently collecting proof of trina’s pcu assignment, which I will be entering into evidence. Spencer, do you realize that with this, you could be jeopardizing your freedom, since you were released from spring ridge?

    [ Crying ] I know. I know that. But at a certain point, you have to stop doing the easy thing and you have to start doing the right thing.

    No worries, boss. This isn’t my first rodeo. Yeah, well, even a veteran rider gets tossed off the bull. All I meant to say is that I know enough to make myself scarce before the cops can see me. It was your son, the detective. I don’t care who it was. Somebody shows up with a badge, you don’t say anything. I-I promise you, that is exactly what I did. I-I’m sorry if I didn’t handle it correctly, but I thought I was doing what you wanted.

    [ Sighs ] Alright, listen, you’re right. You’re abso– yeah. You did the right thing, like you did with josslyn.

    [ Sighs ] What happened with joss? We were having a discussion with that reporter who gave sasha drugs. It got a little heated. We were roughin’ him — roughin’ him up a little bit, right? So happens that josslyn shows up [Scoffs] Starts filming the whole thing, and threatens to take the footage to the police. She what?! She was upset about, you know, what happened with me and her mother…

    [ Sighs ] …And she wanted payback. And thanks to dex, he talked her into deleting the footage. I haven’t even thanked you for that yet. I appreciate that. Now you know what the boundaries are when it comes to dealing with my kids. You’re the boss. You make the rules. Don’t you get it, brando? I am emotionally drained right now. I am too spent for another therapy session. I-I do get that, but you need to stick to your program if you’re going to get any better. Well, that’s not for you to decide, now, is it? I’m not saying that. Look, if you want, I can make the appointment for you, okay? This is not something you need to stress out over. Oh, my god, brando! The only one stressing me out is you! You and gladys are smothering me! Ava: Why are your attacks on me so personal? First, you threw morgan in my face, and then kiki and griffin. You didn’t know any of those people. Who is giving you this information and why? What the hell did I ever do to you? Mm, ava. If time in this provincial city has taught me anything, it’s that people here love to gossip. There aren’t that many people here that, uh, like you very much. Not that I have treated you differently than I would treat anyone else. That is a lesson that you learn pretty quickly in boarding school. People can be vicious, so the best defense is having a good offense. So I learned things. You just happen to have more dirt in your past than most people. Mnh, mnh-mnh. That’s not it. I’m onto something, I know it. I can feel it. When spencer asked for your help in torturing me, you jumped at the chance, didn’t you? Why were you so willing to help him? Spencer ended up in prison. You very well could have ended up there, as well. Now, if you were just some simpleton trying to please her crush, I might buy it. But you are no fool. And obviously, you’re not very devoted to spencer — oh, I am not the one whose devotion wavered. Oh, my. Well, I see I’ve pushed a button. Let’s see if I can push a few more. Okay, if trina robinson did not film and distribute this revenge porn video of josslyn jacks and cameron webber, you must have some suspicion as to who did. Unless, of course, josslyn and cameron filmed themselves. No. No way. It was their first ti– they wouldn’t do that. Did you have anything to do? No, absolutely not. I may not have been the best friend to josslyn and cameron over the course of the last year, but I would never hurt them that way. Okay. This cabin that we’ve been discussing, that belongs to josslyn’s former stepfather — is that correct? Uh, yes. This trip to the cabin — this was before sonny and carly got divorced. Okay, tell me about this cabin. Is there staff? Is there anyone else who might have made this video? A — a cleaning crew, perhaps? No. No, there was no staff there, okay? Okay. Someone else, then? A disgruntled neighbor, perhaps? No. The cabin is very isolated. Alright. Well, there were five of you there that night — trina, who you know is innocent, josslyn and cameron, also innocent, you deny any responsibility, and that leaves who? Objection, your honor. Speculation. There were five people at the cabin that night. Your honor, spencer cassadine was one of them, and therefore, his opinion has merit. Overruled. But tread carefully. There was no outside staff. It had to be someone who was staying in the cabin. Uh-huh. Who? My girlfriend at the time. Esme prince.

    My mom and I don’t mean to smother you. We just want to see you get better, sasha. And I know you had a good talk with willow. I’m glad you guys cleared the air. I know willow’s a good friend to you, but willow is not a psychiatrist. And the whole harmony part — I know that you have guilt over that, but that isn’t your main issue. You need to talk to a doctor about why you turned to pills after you had already seen how cocaine damaged your life. I’m an addict, too, remember? You need to deal with the root cause.

    [ Scoffs lightly ] You don’t trust me. Normally, I do. But I know how addicts think. The temptation of drugs gets the better of your brain. You need your psychiatrist’s help. Your doctors and me, we all wanted you to go to a live-in rehab, but you didn’t want to do that. So if you’re not going to go to rehab, you need to stick to your outpatient therapy. Stop trying to control my every move, brando! Well, given the way that our life together is spiraling out of control, maybe somebody does need to control you! Dex, you can go ahead and take off. I’m going to go over some stuff with brick. Thanks, boss. I’ll see you tomorrow. Yeah. Yeah. Dex, hang on.

    [ Breathes deeply ] Sonny mentioned you were a vet. Same here. I’m sure we’ve got a lot to talk about. I’m sure we do. Mm-hmm. What do you think?

    [ Sighs ] He’s too full of himself. Cocky. Too reckless, as far as I’m concerned. Too flippant with the way he speaks about your family and dealing with the cops. He’s young. He’s — he’s — you know, he’s learning the ropes. He deserves a shot. I’m just not so sure about sending a rookie to deal with some drug dealer. Dex volunteered.

    [ Sighs ] And you think that someone this young and green will be effective in the enforcer role? Well, I mean, he was about jason’s age when jason started working for me. Yeah. Except this generation seems to need a lot more growing up than the previous one. Every generation needs time to mature. Sonny: [ Chuckling ] Isn’t that always the case? Michael: Now, even though we, uh, we didn’t plan for the pregnancy, I can’t help but think that the timing couldn’t be better, right? Because wiley and the new baby, they’re only gonna be a few years apart. Yeah. I mean, growing up, I was, for so many years, desperate for a brother or sister. Mm. Someone I could talk to, play with, share the crazy of life with harmony. Yeah. Uh, what about you? Were you and morgan close? Yeah. I mean, well, for the most part. I mean, there was that time that we were fighting over kiki, which wasn’t great. Uh. [ Chuckles ] But overall, you know, we were close. Then there was dante. Obviously, we didn’t grow up together. We met as adults. But I’m very glad he’s in my life. Nobody can talk me off a cliff like he can.

    [ Cellphone chimes ] Oh, uh… uh… something wrong? No. It’s just a — it’s just a work thing. Yeah, I really — I really need to handle this. B-but actually, I can stay around if you want me t-to stick around… no. No, no, no. …’Cause it can wait. Michael. Go. Go deal with your work. I-it’s fine. I’m fine.

    [ Chuckles ] If this were some big step, of course, I’d — I’d want you to be there, but this is just another routine appointment. You sure? Absolutely. Okay. I’ll see you at home. Alright.

    [ Door closes ] Thank you, mr. Cassadine. No further questions. Mr. Cassadine, it is your testimony that you were with ms. Robinson the moment the e-mail with the revenge porn was distributed to everyone at pcu, correct? Yes, that’s correct. But you have no accounting for ms. Robinson’s whereabouts at the moment the video was being filmed, do you? Let me remind the court, it is the nonconsensual recording that is the most pressing charge here. Um… let me repeat — were you with ms. Robinson when the revenge porn video was filmed? No, I wasn’T. And to reiterate your previous testimony, you were with esme prince when the video was filmed. Yes, I was. Okay, then. Moving on. Mr. Cassadine, you audited classes at pcu last fall. Did you ever need to pull an all-nighter? Yes. Hmm. And when you needed to turn in, say, a term paper to a professor in the middle of the night, were you aware that you could schedule send an e-mail for a later, more reasonable hour via a run-of-the-mill app? Um, you lost me there. Objection, your honor. The state has lost everyone with this line of questioning. Withdrawn. Your honor, I’d like to enter into evidence an e-mail that I personally sent to you and opposing counsel. Excuse me? Give it a second.

    [ Cellphones chime ] Hmm, there it is. You see, while mr. Cassadine was accounting for the defendant’s whereabouts, I scheduled my e-mail to be released later.

    Michael had to leave? Yeah, there was a work issue. I told him to go deal with it. Oh, well, if — if you want to reschedule for a time when you both can be here, we can do that. No, no, I have time. I can wait until the lab results are in. Okay. Look, I couldn’t help but notice you gave michael the runaround earlier when he asked you why I was taking the lead here and not britt, so is there a reason you’re not telling michael this isn’t your usual ob appointment? Well, I hope this is important. I was at the hospital with willow. She okay? Yeah. Yeah, just some standard pregnancy stuff. So what’s going on? Talk to me. Just wanted to make sure you squared things with brando. He seemed pretty suspicious. Yeah, he was 100% suspicious, but he bought that, uh, I was pissed at you for harassing me. Good. ‘Cause I have enough people looking at me suspiciously. What does that mean? This guy, brick — I think he’s going to dig into my past. Well, thanks for the heads up. But… if brick is doing a background check, I mean, that’s — that’s a good sign that you’re moving closer into sonny’s inner circle. Bric k: Well, if you seesomething in this young guy, there must be something there. Still, I’m going to run a full background check on him, and that ain’t a request. Oh, I’m not even gonna try to stop you. Mm. But no matter how much we look into this — you know, dex’s past, it’s not going to tell us whether he can deal with this life. Mm. I mean, all he’s taken care of so far is some low-level drug pusher/ tabloid photographer. Mm. So you want to give him a bigger assignment to test him? Well, I’m thinking… why don’t we see if he proves himself? Trial by fire.

    [ Chuckles ] I like that. Sasha, I am so sorry. If I could take those words back, I would. I didn’t mean it. Didn’t you? I — no, I don’t want to control you. I-I’m just worried about you.

    [ Scoffs ] And so is — so is michael and willow and my mom and everyone at deception. Just admit it, brando.

    [ Sighs ] You said what you really felt. You finally stopped walking on eggshells like you’ve been doing — like everybody’s been doing. No, that’s not true. I mean, can we — can we just go home and talk about this in more privacy? No. No, I need space. Space from me? From everybody. Baby. Sasha. Your honor, I object to the assistant district attorney’s theatrics. There is no proof to suggest that that video was sent via a pre-timed e-mail. No more questions, your honor. Judge young: You may step down, mr. Cassadine. Both counsels, approach the bench. I can’t believe you did that. I can’t believe that it didn’t work. I’m so sorry. Why didn’t you tell us that spencer was your alibi before? I was hoping that curtis would have a hail mary so that I wouldn’t have to. Just keep your chin up, okay, baby girl? I mean, diane’s right. There’s zero evidence that that video was sent via e-mail timer. Maybe spencer was your hail mary. Hey. Hey. I knew I could trust you to do the right thing… after you exhausted all other options. Son. [ Sighs ]

    [ Sighs ] Can we talk? It’s important.

    [ Cellphone chimes ] So you do still have feelings for spencer. Were you so jealous that he obviously has feelings for trina that you slept with his father as what — revenge? Payback? And trina and i were just collateral damage, or something more? What is that? None of your damned business, that’s what!

    [ Laughs ] Okay. Forget it. You know what? Trying to find answers in your bizarre, twisted behavior would have me running in circles. But make no mistake — after everything you’ve done to make people I care about suffer, you are going to do the right thing for the first time in your life.

    [ Scoffs ] And what is that? Playtime is over. We will deal with you sleeping with my husband another time. But right now, you’re going to march down to that courthouse, you’re going to exonerate trina, you’re going to tell the world that you made that tape of joss and cameron. We have already had this conversation, and I have no idea where you’re getting this crazy idea. And besides, why would I even do it? Are you offering to help me disappear and make sure that I don’t go to prison? No. I have no interest in being a fugitive for the rest of my life. Oh, darling girl. You misunderstand me. If you don’t admit that you framed trina… i will make sure that nobody ever finds you. At least not while you’re still breathing.

    Transcript provided by Suzanne

    Nick: [ Sighs ]

    [ Folder thuds ]

    [ Cellphone dings ]

    Chance: If it’s about locke’s death, it hasn’t leaked yet, if that’s what you’re looking for.

    Nick: How long have you been there?

    Chance: I’m surprised to find you here, man. I was looking for your sister.

    Nick: Just came to pick up this.

    Chance: Been trying to get a hold of her. Haven’t had any luck. And I’d actually like to speak to the both of you. She in?

    Nick: You’re gonna have to settle with just me. Vick left early this morning, so she’s far away from this nightmare already.

    Kyle: [ Sighs ]

    Jack: Looks like you could use that.

    Kyle: Yeah. Big time.

    Jack: Couldn’t sleep?

    Kyle: Summer and I were up all night discussing how to tell harrison about ashland’s death.

    Jack: Hardest thing in the world.

    Kyle: Every time I see my son’s smiling face, I just — I wish I could hold onto his innocence a moment longer.

    Jack: Breaks my heart. Telling that kid that “father” is dead. You know, much as we didn’t like ashland, harrison was crazy about him.

    Kyle: Even worse, there was no goodbye. I know how excruciating that can be. It kills me to think about how much loss my son has had in his young life. First tara and now this.

    Jack: Keep in mind, he gained a wonderful father and mother in you and summer.

    Kyle: Yeah.

    Jack: Two people who will always look out for him and will always put his interests first.

    Kyle: Yeah, and as much as i despise what ashland did, I — god, I wish he was alive and well. I would give anything not to have to break this news to my son. I — how can he understand?

    Jack: I remember traveling to switzerland to tell you the news that your mother had died.

    Kyle: I remember it, too. It still haunts me. That’s why I know harrison will likely never forget this day.

    Adam: Hi there.

    Sharon: Hey. Morning. What can I get you?

    Adam: Uh, coffee, black. Maybe, uh, throw a shot of espresso in there just for grins.

    Sharon: You got it.

    Adam: What’s all this?

    Sharon: Oh, tessa’s having a minor procedure done on her vocal chords this morning, so i put together a little care package for her.

    Adam: Well, that sounds nice.

    [ Cellphone ringing ] Oh, I, uh — I better take this.

    Sharon: Yeah. Go ahead.

    Adam: Hi. Hey, thanks for booking the flight. Business class, please. Uh, just one seat. Beautiful. Uh, you can just send the ticket straight to my phone. Okay. Alright. Thanks, paula. Have a good one.

    Sharon: Going out of town? Solo? Well, I assume that means that you and sally didn’t end up working things out.

    Mariah: You’re gonna be in and out, like an hour, tops.

    Tessa: Yeah. Yeah, we’ll see.

    Mariah: And this doctor is the best. You know that, right? Like, he’s done thousands of these procedures. It’s — it’s literally just routine for him.

    Tessa: Yeah. No, no. I-I-I — I know what he said, but, you know, I’m still nervous. Surgery is still surgery, and these are my vocal chords.

    Mariah: Well, maybe think of it as a forced vacation day, where you get to eat ice pops and rest and have people wait on you hand and foot. What could be better? Okay. I know that this is more than just jitters. So, why don’t you tell me what you’re really worried about?

    Tessa: I-I don’t want to jinx anything.

    Mariah: Like if you say it out loud somehow opens the door to it?

    Tessa: Maybe. I — ugh. I know how dumb that sounds.

    Mariah: No, no, it doesn’T. It doesn’t at all. But if you say it out loud, it could possibly lose all its power. Poof! Gone. You know, things are always scarier in the dark than they are in the light.

    Tessa: Okay. I just, um — I can’t help but think… accidents happen. And one of the vocal nodes are way worse than they were originally thinking. And what if I — I lose my one true talent — singing? What if my music career is over? We hit the bike trails every weekend

    Additional sponsorship

    provided by…

    Mariah: Tessa, my love, you are a brilliant singer, okay? But it’s not your only talent. Far from it. And I can say with total confidence that your music career is not over. You are an amazing songwriter and lyricist — skills that will always be in high demand. And what about all of the other amazing things that you’re good at? Like making people feel heard and accepted, making them laugh?

    Tessa: Mm. Too bad you can’t make a living on any of those.

    Mariah: No. You can’T. Or as a dishwasher. ‘Cause, like, you’re really bad at that.

    [ Both laugh ]

    Tessa: One of the many reasons my career as a barista was short-lived.

    Mariah: And this might be selfish on my part, but I think the thing that you’re best at in the whole wide world is loving me.

    Tessa: Well, I’m glad because that’s the thing that means the most to me. And that’s the reason I went from the hot mess that I was to who I am today.

    Mariah: Tessa, you have so many incredible gifts, alright? And if you don’t know that… I’m gonna spend the rest of my life telling you, okay?

    [ Laughs ]

    Tessa: I’ll hold you to that.

    Mariah: You kidding me? It’s the easiest promise I’ve ever made. And I will make you another one. The procedure is going to go brilliantly, okay? You’re not gonna lose your singing voice. I mean, if anything, you’re gonna emerge from this with a stronger, healthier, more golden voice than ever. So, why don’t we make a deal, okay? I’m going to take all of your fear and all of your anxiety and I’m gonna hold on to it so you can just focus on being positive — okay? — And healing.

    Tessa: Deal.

    Mariah: Okay. Come here.

    Adam: Why would you think sally and I re-uniting would even be a possibility?

    Sharon: Um…I guess I just misspoke. What I meant to say was, um… no. You know what? We are all adults here. I’m not gonna have a secret conversation with your girlfriend about you.

    Adam: Okay, sally is my ex-girlfriend. That has not changed.

    Sharon: Sorry to hear that.

    Adam: Why?

    Sharon: After you and i spoke, sally came and confided in me again. She seemed very confused and upset about why you would give her one reason for the breakup and then give me another.

    Adam: Okay, well, if you’ll let me explain, there’s actually a really good reason for that.

    Sharon: No, no, please. You don’t have to. It’s irrelevant. We really don’t have to get into the “he said/she said” or why you gave two versions of the story. The thing that, um, struck me the most, I guess, was that she really seems to love you and, you know, she accepts you, flaws and all, as you are.

    Adam: Yeah. Well, she would be better off if she didn’T. She’d be better hating me.

    Sharon: Yeah, I’m sure it would make it easier for you if you had succeeded at running her off forever.

    Adam: You saw what a spectacle she made of herself in here. I mean, if anybody saw that from newman, her days would be numbered.

    Sharon: I agree with you, and I’m sure she’s aware of that. And yet she did it anyway. So, what does that tell you?

    Adam: Mm. That her priorities are out of whack.

    Sharon: Well, that’s not for you to decide.

    Adam: [ Sighs ] Actually, it is, okay? Sally’s the most driven person that I have ever met. She has spent her whole life chasing professional success and respectability. And now that she’s gotten them, I’m not gonna let her lose those things, especially when my relationships are destined to crash and burn.

    Sharon: Well, you don’t know that. That might not be true. Hey, who knows? Maybe she is the person you were meant to spend the rest of your life with. But I feel like I can be objective about this because, you know, before you two met, I was one of the few people in town who you could count on to have your back.

    Adam: And I promise not to burden you with that responsibility — again, if that’s what you’re worried about, okay? I don’t need to be with anybody right now.

    Sharon: Everybody needs people in their lives who care about them. It was good for you when you had sally in your life. And, you know, that’s why i convinced her to not give up on you — to prove to you that you are more important to her than any job. And she was very impassioned, so I assume that’s what she did.

    Adam: Oh, you are right. She came to me, and she said she was going to quit newman.

    Sharon: Which surely made you realize what you’d be giving up by continuing to reject her, right? Or am I wrong? Have you really hardened your heart to sally? Because I thought that you had feelings for her, too.

    Chance: I tell you, it’s pretty strange timing for victoria to bolt like that — I mean, the night after her ex dies in her house.

    Nick: There was no bolting involved. Vick went to pick up her kids from camp. Then they’re gonna stop by their favorite water park on the way home. Nothing changes, except I don’t know how she’s gonna be able to enjoy the day because she has to tell her children that their stepfather died in a car crash.

    Chance: That’s tough news to break, especially to children.

    Nick: I just hope she can find some comfort in spending time with katie and johnny.

    Chance: Has she considered having billy grab them instead? You know, given that there is an ongoing investigation happening?

    Nick: Billy’s away on business. And why would victoria need to stay in town? She didn’t do anything wrong.

    Chance: I didn’t say she did.

    Nick: You kind of implied it.

    Chance: Look, I came here, and I was hoping to get a little bit more insight into ashland’s frame of mind.

    Nick: Look, I thought I was pretty clear last night. Ashland was in a complete rage when he was going after my sister.

    Chance: I understand. I was just looking for some additional nuance.

    Nick: Like what?

    Chance: For instance, in your opinion, would you say ashland was in a state of mind to take his own life when he left after your altercation?

    Nick: Look, man, I couldn’t tell you if ashland was suicidal. Like I said, I wasn’t there when he left. Now, I can tell you he was homicidal while he was attacking my sister. And then he turned on me when i stepped in to try and protect her. Honestly, chance, I didn’t think he could breathe, let alone drive a car.

    Chance: And that is the most confusing part about all this.

    Nick: Look, I wish like hell I could tell you what happened after victoria and I left ashland for dead.

    Adam: You’re not completely wrong. I do have feelings for —

    had feelings for sally.

    Sharon: Okay, come on. It’s me you’re talking to. I’m not buying the past tense.

    Adam: [ Sighs ]

    Sharon: Okay. Why are you cutting out someone who cares about you and appears to see the best in you and might even bring the best out of you?

    Adam: Sharon, it’s — it’s complicated.

    Sharon: You know what? When you find someone who you really match up with, it shouldn’t be complicated and you shouldn’t take it for granted.

    Adam: Look, as I already told you, um, this is what’s best for everybody, okay? I need a break. And the trip that you heard me booking was for vegas.

    Sharon: Really? Given your history there, why would you want to go back there? And don’t forget — I’m the one who brought you home from vegas. I wouldn’t want to see you slide into old bad habits. So, how long are you staying?

    Adam: I’m taking off now.

    [ Laughter ] Okay, you have a family to attend to, and I have a trip to pack for. Good luck with the procedure today, tessa.

    Tessa: Thank you.

    Adam: Take care, ladies.

    Sharon: How was your walk?

    Mariah: It was great. Yeah. I was just wondering if I could do a coffee to go ’cause we’re gonna be heading to the surgery center in a little bit.

    Sharon: Of course. Um, tessa, I don’t suppose you’re allowed to have anything before your procedure?

    Tessa: [ Sighs ] No. I wish because I just really want a hot mocha because it would be the last time that i would be able to have one for a while. I won’t tell if you won’T.

    Sharon: [ Laughs ] Totally understand that. After what I’ve been through, anything medical just gives me the jitters.

    Tessa: Yeah, I — I’m nervous, but I’m less nervous because this one has been such a soothing presence.

    Summer: Are you ready?

    Jack: I want to help in any way I can.

    Kyle: Thanks, dad. I appreciate the support, but i feel summer and I should tell our son the news. I’d be grateful if you were around to help pick up any pieces afterwards. I know harrison’s grandpa will be an important part of the healing process.

    Jack: Of course.

    Summer: I left him playing with the nanny upstairs, but we shouldn’t put this off. The press is gonna be all over this pretty soon, and harrison is sensitive. If people are buzzing about it, he’s liable to pick up on something.

    Jack: You know what? I’ll go up and get harrison, give you a few minutes to prepare, alright?

    Kyle: Okay. Thanks. God, I’m dreading this.

    Summer: It’s gonna be so difficult. You know, when harrison is sad about the littlest of things, it usually gets me going, too.

    Kyle: Yeah, the shock will be bad enough, but I wonder how this will affect him long term. Losing a parent as a kid… you — you suddenly realize there’s no such thing as forever. It turned my world upside down, colored everything since.

    Sharon: I know how tough this is for you. It’s triggering painful memories, I’m sure.

    Kyle: Remembering what I was put through as a kid brings up all the old times, the overwhelming grief. I have to wonder if my mother considered the pain her actions caused me, the way I’m considering harrison’s pain now. Did she ever imagine how difficult it would be for my dad to have to tell me that my mother was never coming home?

    Summer: [ Breathes deeply ] Look, if you aren’t ready, i don’t want to rush you into this.

    Kyle: No. No. I may understand the pain, but i also understand that you can get through this. I can do this. I can do this for my son.

    Summer: We can do this.

    Nikki: Oh, hello, chance.

    Chance: Hello, nikki. Very nice to see you.

    Nikki: You too. How are you, darling?

    Nick: Hey, mom.

    Nikki: I’m glad you’re here. I wanted you to know how grateful I am for you coming to victoria’s aid last night and that you were able to track down ashland so quickly.

    Chance: I’m just doing my job.

    Nikki: Well, I know you understand the terrible toll this has taken on abby’s siblings. If you’re finished speaking with nicholas, I haven’t seen him since he rescued his sister, and I’d like to spend a little time with him.

    Chance: Yeah, absolutely. I think, uh, nick has said all he has to say. Unless you want to add something?

    Nick: No. I’m good.

    Chance: Okay. Well, do me a favor. If either of you speak to victoria, please have her call me.

    Nikki: We will. Give our love to abby and dominic.

    Chance: Of course.

    Nick: See ya.

    Chance: Excuse me.

    Nikki: Oh, son, I’m so grateful that you were there for your sister. Thank god you showed up when you did. And I’m so sorry about everything you went through. How are you feeling?

    Nick: Like I don’t deserve to be thanked.

    Nikki: You’re blaming yourself, aren’t you? You know…

    [ Sighs ] We need to get out of here. We need to go someplace where we can talk without being interrupted by work and not reminded of the dreaded newman/locke regime.

    [ Folder thuds ]

    Sharon: Are you leaving for the procedure soon?

    Mariah: Uh, yeah. We just went on a little walk, you know, to clear our heads.

    Sharon: Okay. Because, um, I got you a little care package. I put it together so tessa can have that when you bring her home, and I plan to stock your fridge with soothing things to eat and drink.

    Tessa: Aww.

    Mariah: Mom, that is so sweet of you.

    Tessa: Oh, it is. Thank you, sharon.

    Sharon: Well, it’s my pleasure.

    Tessa: Uh, I’m gonna take it upstairs now and gather my things for the doctor’S.

    Mariah: Yeah. I’ll be here waiting.

    Tessa: I’m so lucky to have a mother-in-law that feels like a mom.

    Sharon: Aww.

    Tessa: Thank you.

    Sharon: That is the loveliest thing anyone has ever said to me. Hey, what’s wrong? A minute ago, you were all smiles.

    Mariah: I’m trying to keep a brave face for tessa’s sake, but the truth is, I am scared to death about today. Ladies, six minutes please…

    Sharon: I am so sorry. I had no idea you were this scared. I thought you and tessa were fine, and the procedure is just very —

    Mariah: It’s routine. Yeah. I know. I know. I just — I didn’t even realize I was feeling this way until earlier when — when tessa said that she was scared. She’s terrified she’s gonna lose her singing voice.

    Sharon: [ Gasps ]

    Mariah: I guess just seeing how afraid she was made me afraid…’cause I can’t bear the thought of tessa being in any kind of pain.

    Sharon: I understand that feeling, wanting the one you love to be okay, even more so than yourself. But, hey, that’s marriage. And you two have each other. And you have a great doctor. And you’re gonna be okay. You’ll get through this.

    Tessa: [ Sighs ] Okay. I’m ready.

    Mariah: [ Smooches ] Let’s do this.

    Nikki: Now, I know you, and i know you’re churning inside. Please tell me you know it wasn’t your fault. You are not responsible for ashland’s death.

    Nick: How can I do that when I don’t know?

    Nikki: From what i understand, you probably saved your sister’s life.

    Nick: I don’t know how much vick told you. I threw a punch, you know? I knocked ashland down. He hit his head on the fireplace. He was bleeding and unconscious.

    Nikki: Alright, baby, stop. You don’t have to keep retelling it. I know the rest, all of it.

    Kyle: There are some things we need to tell you, buddy. Sometimes accidents happen… and people get hurt. And it can be sad and scary. It’s a hard part of life.

    Summer: Do you understand what an accident is?

    Kyle: Hey, remember that movie we saw, where the pony’s dad got hurt and he wasn’t able to be around to watch the pony grow up? It’s kind of like that. Unfortunately… father won’t be able to come see us anymore.

    [ Doorbell rings ]

    Jack: I’ll get that. Uh, hi. I don’t mean to be rude, but this is not a good time. We’re dealing with something right now.

    Diane: Oh. I’m — I’m sorry. I guess I should have phoned first.

    Jack: Probably.

    Harrison: Dee dee!

    Kyle: Hey, stay with me. Stay with me. Come here. Harrison, do you understand what we just told you? Father died. Which means he’s gone. He won’t be able to come back and visit anymore.

    Harrison: No, father told me he’ll come back.

    Summer: Let’s step outside for a moment.

    Diane: [ Sighs ]

    [ Door closes ]

    And it’s easier than ever to get

    your projects done right .

    “The young and the restless”

    will continue.

    Summer: Ashland was found in his car in a ravine. Police believe he died instantly.

    Diane: What?! Oh, I’m — I’m so sorry.

    Summer: Diane, I think you should go now. Harrison has a lot to process, if he even can, and this is bringing up a lot of bad memories for kyle.

    Diane: [ Sighs ] I — I realize that. Which is exactly why I should stay. Please — please, let me go back inside. Please let me try to help.

    Nick: How much do you know about what happened last night?

    Nikki: I know that you and victoria both thought that ashland was dead when you left the house. And if anybody understands the horror that you’re feeling, it’s me. Because I thought that I had killed jt.

    Nick: I remember.

    Nikki: And even though I knew I was justified, I still blamed myself. I was haunted by it. I was defending victoria, just as you were, but I would do the whole thing again in a heartbeat if I had to.

    Nick: So would I.

    Nikki: I’m sorry things played out the way they did. But, honey, I’m so grateful you were there to intervene. I mean, otherwise, we might be planning your sister’s funeral and ashland would still be out there walking the streets.

    Nick: Look, I get what you’re saying, but I cannot shake the visual of ashland lying on that hearth unconscious —

    Nikki: Honey, please stop. Now, I want you to hear what I am saying. You are not responsible for what happened to ashland last night, and I’m not even gonna pretend to mourn that monster. His death was his own doing, but he was still alive the last time you saw him. He got up, he walked out, he got in his car and drove off. It is not your fault that he died in a car accident. I need you to fully understand that. You are not to blame for his death.

    Diane: Hi, harrison. Sounds like you’re having a big talk.

    Kyle: Yes, we are.

    Diane: I know mommy and daddy shared some sad news with you, how father got hurt and he won’t be back. That’s kind of hard to believe or understand, isn’t it? Yeah. Hey, you and I just saw father at the park, didn’t we? I heard him telling you how much he loves you and how he had to go away on a trip, but that he’d be back soon.

    [ Sighs ] But sometimes things happen in life that we aren’t expecting and our plans change, like — oh, do you remember the day that we were going to the park and then, when we went outside, it started to rain, so we decided to stay home? Yeah. Well, that’s — that’s one way that plans can change when something that we can’t control happens to us. And then all of a sudden, things aren’t the way we thought they’d be. But that doesn’t mean that father didn’t love you more than anything else in this world. I know that if father could be here with you, he would be. But this is just one of those times that something bad happened and he can’t be. Show me where your heart is.

    [ Chuckles ] What a smart and brave boy you are. That’s — that’s absolutely right.

    Kyle: Father’s still in there, in your heart.

    Diane: Yeah.

    Kyle: Along with all the other people you love. For copd,

    Nick: Hey.

    Sharon: Hey. You know what? You just missed the girls. They’re on their way to tessa’s procedure, and they’re both a little nervous about it, but i think that’s probably natural. Everything’s gonna be fine.

    Nick: Yeah, I’m gonna send them flowers to their apartment later.

    Sharon: Good. Um, you seem a little — I don’t know — preoccupied. What’s on your mind?

    Nick: I came by here last night looking for you, but I ran into sally instead, and this was after having a conversation with my mother that wasn’t as comforting as she intended it to be.

    Sharon: Well, I’m here now. I’m gonna pour you a cup of coffee, and you can tell me all about it.

    Nick: Okay. It, uh — this hasn’t hit the news yet… but something happened and i need to tell you about it.

    Sharon: Okay.

    Nick: Ashland died last night. The police found him in his car at the bottom of a ravine.

    Adam: Chance?

    Chance: Hey, man.

    Adam: How’s it going?

    Chance: Oh, you know, keeping busy. How about yourself?

    Adam: Uh, I’m actually taking off to vegas for a bit, so I’ll make sure to play a round poker on your behalf.

    Chance: I take it you don’t know about ashland?

    Adam: Well, since I have no idea what you’re talking about, apparently not.

    Chance: I guess the news hasn’t broken yet, but I’m surprised your family hasn’t told you.

    Adam: Well, trust me when i say I am permanently out of the loop when it comes to newman news. Why? What has locke done now?

    Chance: Well, he died in an accident. At least, that’s the official version for now.

    Sharon: You know, I feel bad for you and victoria. My heart goes out to you. It must have been a hellish night. First there you are, defending victoria against ashland. You don’t know where the man is. He’s out there somewhere, ready for more violence, and then you get the call about the accident.

    Nick: You left out the part where I thought I killed ashland before he got up and vanished. I still have no idea how that happened.

    Sharon: Well, if you talked to nikki, you know what I think.

    Nick: On account of jt?

    Sharon: Mm. I know that it’s possible for you to be absolutely certain that someone died and then didn’T. You know, nikki only thought thathe killed jt. And you only thought that you killed ashland. But that’s where the comparison ends.

    Nick: [ Sighs ] How do you mean?

    Sharon: Well, you didn’t have to wait months before finding out that that wasn’t true. In many ways, you’re very lucky that ashland got up and walked away last night. I brought in ensure max protein

    Diane: Ooh. Alright, I should go so you can be with your mommy and your daddy and your grandpa.

    Harrison: Dee dee, don’t go.

    Diane: [ Chuckles ] Well, maybe if it’s alright, we could go outside and hunt for leaves. Would you like that?

    Summer: I think that’s a great idea. Harrison could use some time with his friend right now.

    Kyle: Actually, harrison, dee dee is more than a good friend. She’s my mom, your grandmother, just like jack is my dad and your grandfather. And I know that dee dee loves you very much. And we’re so happy she’s here to help us on a hard day.

    Diane: [ Chuckles ] Harrison, can I have another hug? Aww. Thank you. [ Sniffles ]

    Sharon: I’m getting the feeling that this conversation isn’t really helping. What’s gnawing at you?

    Nick: I’m just trying to wrap my head around how ashland vanished and then later ended up dead in his car. I’m telling you, he had no pulse. Vick tried cpr.

    Sharon: Yep. Been there. But it is clear if ashland was there when you left to go out for air and then he wasn’t there anymore when you came back — because he wasn’t dead. You didn’t kill him.

    Nick: I want to believe that.

    Sharon: Why would you doubt it? What, do you think that the head injury might have caused the crash? That’s speculation. Blaming yourself for all of the actions that the man took that night on his own accord, including attacking victoria in the first place.

    Nick: At first, I did think him falling down and hurting his head played some part in his accident, but there’s just more to it than that. I mean, there’s a whole part of the sequence that just doesn’t sit right with me.

    Sharon: Like what?

    Nick: My dad showing up at victoria’s just after we discovered that ashland was gone. It doesn’t make sense. I’m trying to fight the feeling, but the thing is, with my dad there, the simple explanation is probably too simple. When victor newman is involved, things tend to get very complicated.

    Sharon: Well, did you ask him point blank?

    Nick: I did.

    Sharon: And?

    Nick: I still don’t know what went down, sharon, because the truth is, I can’t trust my dad to tell the truth.

    Adam: What do you mean, “official version”? I mean, is the guy dead or is he not dead?

    Chance: Very much so.

    Adam: Then why would you use that phrase? I mean, is there another theory floating around out there?

    [ Cellphone chimes]

    Chance: Sorry, man. Duty calls. I got to run. I hope you’re back from vegas soon ’cause your family might need your support.

    Adam: Yeah. Hi, paula. It’s me again. Um… I need you to cancel my flight. There’s been a change in plans.

    Next week on

    “the young and the restless”…

    Nate: I’m no intern. I don’t need adult supervision like some kid fresh out of school.

    Amanda: Is everything okay in here?

    Nikki: Unfortunately, we have not been able to dig up any dirt on diane when she was living in los angeles.

    Phyllis: So we realized that we have to come up with some dirt here.

    Kevin: Why? What’d I miss?

    Chance: Locke’s death might be more complicated than we first thought.

    Days of Our Lives Transcript

    Days of Our Lives logo

    Transcript provided by Suzanne

    Tony: Said Simple Simon to the pieman, let me taste your ware.

    Allie: What?

    Tony: “Simple Simon met a pieman going to the fair”?

    Allie: I’m sorry, do you need help?

    Tony: No, no, I’m sorry. No, it’s just a silly old nursery rhyme.

    Allie: Oh.

    Tony: You know, they used to use it to amuse the young folk in my day, but that was long before your “tic-tacs.”

    Allie: You mean tiktok?

    Tony: Mmm. I’m almost tempted to recite “hickory dickory dock,” but I’ll spare you. So, where is your partner in this patisserie?

    Allie: It’s just me today. I’m actually trying to answer the age-old question, cherry or peach pie? I’m taking kind of a census. And chanel is taking a personal day, she actually has a very important choice to make of her own.

    Tony: More important than pie? Oh, that’s hard to believe.

    Allie: I know. Believe it. I don’t know about simple simon, but I’m hoping that simon says she makes the right choice.

    Johnny: Forget about simon, johnny says she’s gonna choose me.

    Tony: Ah.

    Chanel: Why is this so hard? Giovanni or horton? Horton or giovanni?

    Paulina: In my experience, when a girl is talking into her coffee, it’s usually a boy that she’s brewing over.

    Chanel: A boy and a girl.

    Paulina: Oh. You still haven’t made a choice between allie and johnny?

    Chanel: I told them I would come up with a decision by today. But I don’t know what to do, mama.

    Paulina: Oh, well, baby, mama’s here. And she’s on the case.

    Chad: Rafe. I just read “the intruder–” “the intruder!” And found out that sarah horton was brought in for questioning. Apparently, she was at the mansion the night abby was murdered. Yeah, if you wouldn’t mind giving me a call back please at your earliest convenience, I would really like to know what the hell is going on and why my wife’s murderer isn’t behind bars yet. Thank you!

    Ej: You see, I’m wondering if you’re planning on joining your wife’s murderer in lockup. I need an answer, chad. Are you giving me your shares or am I sending you to prison?

    Ava: He didn’t make it? Jake is–he’s dead?

    Kayla: I’m sorry.

    Ava: Are you sure?

    Kayla: Ava–

    Ava: No, you’re wrong. You’re wrong. This is just like tripp. It’s just like tripp. You said that he was gone and he wasn’t, so you’re wrong.

    Kayla: No, tripp– it’s a miracle he’s alive, but that is not the case with jake. I’m sorry. He’s gone.

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

    [Soft orchestration]

    Gabi: Oh, to what do I owe this displeasure?

    Kate: Well, I think we both reached the point in our relationship where we accept the fact that we don’t owe each other anything, do we?

    Gabi: Yeah, I agree on that, thank you for stopping by.

    Kate: Why I stopped by is to warn you that you have a target on your back because ej is gunning for your job.

    Gabi: Well, that’s nothing new.

    Kate: Oh no, what’s changed it is the fact that he now has the ammunition to do it because I’ve signed all of my shares over to him and I believe chad’s gonna do the same thing.

    Chad: Your latest power play hasn’t been one of my biggest concerns, in case you forgot my wife was murdered. And now it turns out that sarah horton might’ve had something to do with it. Or at least know who did.

    Ej: Hmm. I have accorded you a significant amount of sympathy for your loss, but I’m afraid your bereavement leave is over.

    Chad: How dare you?

    Ej: How dare I? You sent me to prison. You and kate, for a crime I did not commit. Your latest power play caused quite the concern. Or have you forgotten? Well, chad, it’s time to pay the piper. I’ll accept two forms of repayment for your treachery as discussed. So ask yourself, are you going to continue grieving here in this house? Or locked up for your crimes? Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.

    Tony: So, chanel has to make a choice and you’ve put her on the clock.

    Allie: May the best twin win.

    Johnny: Oh, he will. And I’m sure my uncle tony is rooting for me, right? Dimeras all the way.

    Tony: Oh, please consider me switzerland in this morass. Anna and I are very fond of chanel. And as my wife would be the first to point out, it’s chanel’s choice and her choice alone. So what do I say? I wish you both the best of luck.

    Allie: Wait. You didn’t answer which pie you prefer. Cherry–

    Johnny: Or peach?

    Tony: Ah, I think I’m gonna go inside and get some tea cakes.

    Paulina: Well, baby, I’m glad that you finally realized you can’t have your cake and eat it too.

    Chanel: I know, I have to choose one. But the problem is I love them both.

    Paulina: Well… you have to ask yourself now what do you prefer? Penis or vagina?

    Chanel: Mama!

    Paulina: What? We’re two grown-ass women. I had the talk with you years ago. There’s no need to be embarrassed about what god gave us.

    Chanel: I’m not embarrassed, it’s just it’s not about that for me. Do you love abe because of his–

    Paulina: That’s one reason.

    Chanel: Why did I even ask that?

    Paulina: Sex is very important in a healthy relationship.

    Chanel: Probably not the most healthy thing to discuss with your mother. Fine. Sex isn’t a problem, with either of them.

    Paulina: Okay, so what? You’re 50/50 across the board? 51/49? Either way?

    Chanel: It’s not something I can put a number on. To me, it is about the individual person, not their equipment.

    Paulina: Hmm. I see. Um. Oh– whenever I have to make a business decision, I break it down into pros and cons, okay? So let’s do that with your twins. Then, maybe… the choice will become clear.

    Ej: Kate has already made her choice. She’s surrendered her shares to me, and as far as I’m concerned, you’d do best to do the same.

    Chad: You know what? You can have the shares, all right? And since you’re in such a hurry to consolidate power to feed your bruised little ego, I’ll go upstairs and I’ll get you the certificates right now.

    Ej: Good. And while you’re at it, why don’t you start packing your belongings? Because I want you out of this house.

    [Door opens]

    Kayla: Take all the time you need.

    [Somber music]

    Ava: Jake.

    [Somber music]

    After trying lots of things to manage her

    Chanel: Okay, let’s not do cons, I wanna keep this positive.

    Paulina: Sounds like the right attitude to me. So who do you wanna start with?

    Chanel: Mmm, let’s start with giovanni. But don’t read anything into it. It’s just my relationship with gio is a lot less complicated, that’s all. So it’ll just be easier to do him first.

    Paulina: Okay, okay.

    Chanel: Okay.

    Paulina: Giovanni it is. So what do you find appealing about johnny dimera? What makes you two compatible?

    Chanel: Well, he’s funny. Very funny. He can make me laugh even when I feel like crying.

    Paulina: Mm-hmm, a sense of humor. That’s good.

    Chanel: And he’s so handsome. Great smile.

    Paulina: Also a plus.

    Chanel: He’s very smart.

    Paulina: And rich!

    Chanel: Mama! Whose list is this?

    Paulina: I’m just saying. All right, all right. Please, proceed.

    Chanel: Well, like some people I know, giovanni is persistent. He doesn’t give up on anything or anybody. He takes chances, you know? Like when we were in naples, we found ourselves in this little karaoke bar and johnny told me he wanted to sing “mona lisa” for me.

    Paulina: Nat king cole, huh? Oh, the boy knows his music.

    Chanel: He does. So he hops up on the stage, grabs the mic, and he turns to the prompter as the song starts but the words weren’t in english. Now, now, johnny, he speaks a little italian but not serenading his love in front of an audience italian.

    Paulina: Well, well, what, what? What did he do?

    Chanel: Now, this wasn’t some touristy place full of americans, no, it was full of locals ready to hate him. Now, johnny could’ve grabbed me and we could’ve run out of there, but he didn’T. He didn’t hesitate for a second. He belted out that love song in his best broken italian. He did it at full volume and with his whole heart. And he won over the crowd. And me. And he wanted to show how he felt, and he was fearless.

    Paulina: Mmm. Fearless. Romantic. Speaks italian. Loves nat king cole. Loves my very special and beautiful daughter. This young man sounds like a keeper to me, chanel.

    Chanel: Yeah. He does.


    Johnny: Look what I did. It seems everyone prefers my peach pie samples to your cherry samples. Why am I not surprised?

    Allie: Why am I not surprised that you’re getting all up in people’s faces and forcing your peach samples on them? They just wanted you to go away.

    Johnny: What? They were licking their lips begging for more.

    Allie: Also, why am I not surprised to see a man taking credit for the work of a woman? Now, remind me, did you bake that pie? Or did I? Oh, that’s right, I baked them both. And I don’t need to go around telling everybody how great my pie is. I can just sit back, let them come to me, and then I’m gonna give them the time and space to make up their own minds. And they’ll come to the realization that the only choice is cherry.

    Steve: Hey, kids. What’s good today?

    Chad: You think I’m gonna move out of this house? You can’t be serious.

    Ej: Do I look like I’m joking? And, frankly, you don’t deserve to live in this house that father built. While it was under your care and much to my horror, you allowed this house to fall into gabriella’s greedy hands. Had I not been around to get back the deed and title to this house, it may never have been restored to its rightful legacy.

    Chad: What do you mean? I’ve been as much a part of that legacy as you are.

    Ej: You’re a traitor to that legacy and this family. Which is why I’m banishing you.

    Tony: Oh, these cookies, they’re absolutely delicious. And I thought I would– oh. Maybe not. I’ll come back later.

    Chad: Wait, tony, wait. You should know that our brother here is trying to kick me out of the house.

    Ej: Because our brother here is a duplicitous snake.

    Gabi: So that given that ej will come after me, I mean, we have this whole roadrunner/coyote thing going, but I have proven time and time again that the best man to run this company is this woman right here. He’ll soon find the edge of the cliff behind him again and me waving as he plummets to his– well, you know.

    Kate: Yeah. Well, it looks like you have it all figured out, don’t you?

    Gabi: Actually, I do. I do. And I know that you unfortunately don’t have a job right now, which is fine, but I am gainfully employed and I am running a multi-national corporation, so best be going, okay?

    [Phone rings] Busy, busy. Oh, rafe. Hey, listen, can I call you back because I’m dealing with a pest control problem– what? Yeah. I–I understand. Okay. Okay.

    Kate: What did he say?

    Gabi: Jake– jake– jake’s dead.

    [Somber music]

    Jake: Okay. I thought getting shot in the gut was bad. The hell was that for?

    Ava: You lied to me. Flo, you’re here.

    Jake: When did I lie to you?

    Ava: Every time you smiled at me like that and you gave that look.

    Jake: What look?

    Ava: That one! That one, the one that told me that we actually had a future together. The one that said you’d never leave. The one… that said you really loved me.

    Jake: I do–

    [Sighs] I did love you.

    Ava: I told you. I told you I didn’t wanna get hurt again, and I told you that I didn’t wanna lose you. You knew about my past because I shared it with you. You knew about the guys that I loved and who left and then you convinced me, you convinced me that that was not you. And then you put a ring on my finger, jake. And I believed you. Because I’m stupid. I’m a sucker just like I always am because I believed that you were gonna stay and now you have left and I’m alone and it is your fault!

    Kate: Jake is what?

    Gabi: Rafe– oh, rafe says he was shot and they rushed him to the hospital but that he didn’t make it. Kate… he’s gone. Jake’s gone.

    Ej: I’m sure it’s not news to you that chad was willing to let me rot in statesville for a crime I did not commit.

    Tony: Listen. I understand that miscarriage of justice and you have every right to be upset about being wronged. But I truly believe this is not the time to be seeking retribution. This man, he just lost his wife.

    Ej: So did I.

    Chad: You are not seriously comparing the two. My wife was stabbed to death, ej, murdered in this house. I found her upstairs. You–your wife walked out on you! Again! All you have to do is wait. I’m sure sami’s crazy ass is gonna come walking through that door–

    Ej: You watch your mouth! You are in no position to be throwing stones about crazy wives.

    [Tense music]

    Chad: Shut your mouth.

    Ej: I did not take abigail away from you, damn it! What happened was awful. Tragic. But it had nothing to do with me. What happened to me on the other hand, had everything to do with you!

    Chanel: This is too much. I need to take a break. It’s just no matter what I choose, I have to hurt someone that I really care about. And I might break apart a life-long friendship. They’re twins, mama! I can’t–I can’t take that away from them.

    Paulina: Baby, the heart wants what the heart wants. Whatever choice you make, whoever gets hurt, they will recover, my darling. Johnny and allie are both young and resourceful. Stop worrying about them. Take care of you.

    Chanel: Right. I’ll try.

    Paulina: You know what? You know, I can see how much you’re struggling with this so, baby, let’s you know what I say? Let’s put this on hold for now.

    Chanel: No, no, no. I owe it to them. I need to finish this. I’ve kept them in limbo for too long.

    Paulina: Okay, okay. So then moving right along. So… what do you love about allie?

    Chanel: I love that to me she’s horton and to her I’m dupree. We have this rich past of friendship and we’re best friends, truly. And we’ve known each other for what feels like forever. But we still find ways to surprise each other. I love her laugh and her smile. And I even love her sadness.

    Paulina: You love her sadness?

    Chanel: Johnny takes everything in stride, but allie, she feels it all. She feels the world’s joy and its pain.

    Paulina: Hmm.

    Chanel: The other day, allie and I, we went for a walk in the square and we saw this little girl who’d skinned her knee and I looked over to allie and she was looking at the little girl and the look on their faces, it was the same.

    Paulina: She’s an empath.

    Chanel: Right. Right. It was like she really felt that little girl’s pain, really felt it. Like I could tell, I could tell. And it was like she wanted to take some of it for herself so that the little girl could feel better faster. And of course she went running right over to her to comfort her.

    Paulina: Mmm. It’s like I’ve always said, it’s good to find the helpers and keep them close.

    Chanel: And then on that same walk, we saw this old man who had lost his wallet and allie helped him look all over for it. And when he finally found it, he was so relieved, so happy. And I looked at allie and she, she was just as happy as he was. It’s like she’s so connected to this world and everyone in it. How could I not wanna be connected to her?

    Paulina: Yeah. I get it, I get it. And I can see why you’re struggling. I hear it in your voice how much you love them both so much. They are very lucky to have you in their lives. Somebody who appreciates them the way you do.

    Chanel: Yeah, yeah, but now I have to choose just one.

    Johnny: Well, this one is richer.

    Allie: But this one is sweeter.

    Johnny: A little too sweet if you ask me, almost sickeningly sweet.

    Allie: Well, this one is really just empty calories.

    Johnny: Well, this oneis a little tart.

    Allie: Excuse me?

    Johnny: You heard me.

    Steve: Um, I’m not sure what’s going on here, but I’m gonna skip the pies. I’m going inside to see if I can find myself some cookies.

    Allie: I just wanna make sure that I didn’t imagine you calling me a little tart?

    Johnny: Hey, sis, if the pie fits.

    Allie: Okay, well, you know what? When chanel finally makes her decision, I’m not gonna be the one with pie all over my face.

    Johnny: What? Oh!

    When moderate to severe

    ulcerative colitis persists…

    [Playful music]

    Johnny: You know what? You’re right, the cherry– the cherry is delicious. It’s the perfect amount of sweet and tart.

    Allie: Yes. See? I told you. And chanel knows, too. See, she won’t be able to resist my pie.

    Johnny: Oh, but you haven’t tried mine yet.

    Allie: You wouldn’T.

    Johnny: No. I wouldn’T. Or would I?

    Paulina: Honey, oh, I’m sorry, I don’t think we’re even close to an answer.

    Chanel: Thank you for trying, mama.

    Paulina: Oh, baby. Well, I don’t know who you should choose or who you’re going to choose, but I do one thing, whoever that boy or girl turns out to be, they will be the luckiest person on the planet. Because there just isn’t enough paper in the whole wide world to write down all there is to love about you. Oh. [Laughs] Mm.

    Jake: I didn’t mean for this to happen.

    Ava: Yeah, but you couldn’t let it go. You had to be the tough guy, just like you were back in philly. Right? You couldn’t stand the idea of some other hard case getting the better of jake dimera.

    Jake: No, it wasn’t about the ring. Okay? The ring could be replaced. It was about that moment you and I just shared, right before. Right? I wasn’t gonna let anybody take that away from us.

    Ava: Jake, life isn’t about one moment, it is about all of them. And, yeah, we could’ve replaced the ring. But I can’t replace you. Now all I got is this stupid ring. And that memory, that one memory of right before you died. I would give anything, especially this ring, to have you back.

    Jake: But I got such a good deal on it.

    Ava: It’s not funny.

    Jake: Come on. Guy threw in the wedding bands for free, remember? I still got ’em in my pocket. Huh?

    Ava: All right, okay, well, I guess in that case it turned out all right. Jake, what am I gonna do now?

    Jake: Well… you’re gonna mourn me for a respectable amount of time. And then, come on, you’re ava vitali. You’re a survivor. You’re thee survivor, right? You’ll figure it out because you always do. And then you’re gonna be okay. Come here. Hey, come here. All right.

    [Somber music]

    Ava: [Crying]

    Jake: I’m sorry I’m gone. But you gotta remember one thing. I didn’t leave you. Okay? I didn’t leave you. I’m not like the others. And what we had was really special. Didn’t last very long, but… it was special. And you’re gonna carry that with you for the rest of your life. Okay?

    Ava: I will. I will.

    Gabi: Just left this horrible voicemail this morning screaming at him for not showing up to work. I was so stupid.

    Kate: No, there’s no way that you could’ve known, gabi. Look, I’m so– I’m sorry for your loss, I am. I mean, I know that you moved on but he meant a lot to you.

    Gabi: Yeah and to you too.

    Ej: I did not kill abigail, but frankly I’m shocked I haven’t been framed for that. But you– I lost samantha because of you. Because of your shameful disloyalty to me and this family. Your–your malicious lies.

    Chad: I’ll own my part in coming between you and sami. But you–you slept with her sister all on your own.

    Ej: Belle and I are through.

    Chad: My condolences. Now you have more free time to roam the dark halls of this mausoleum blaming me for all your problems.

    Ej: Which is now none of your concern since you’re moving out.

    Tony: Ej! This is our family abode. Think about the children, thomas and charlotte! This is the only home they’ve ever known!

    Ej: My niece and nephew are welcome to stay.

    Chad: You think I’m gonna leave my children here with you? Never. They’re coming with me. It’s clear there’s not enough room in this mansion for anything other than your bruised ego and self-pitying paranoia.

    Ej: Don’t let the door hit you on the way out! And don’t forget to bring me those certificates for your shares! Ubrelvy helps u fight migraine attacks.

    Allie: [Laughs] Oh. You really think chanel is going to choose an immature little child like you?

    Johnny: You started it!

    Allie: Did not!

    Johnny: Did too.

    Allie: Oh, you are ridiculous!

    Johnny: You know what? Let me she who is without sin cast the first pie.

    Allie: You called me a nasty name so, yeah, I threw a pie at you.

    Johnny: I called you a little tart.

    Allie: Ohh.

    Johnny: Which is a term, a term of endearment.

    Allie: Yeah, so is this.

    [Phones beeping]

    Johnny: Wait. Truce. I am going to slowly reach my hand into my pocket. Just put the pie down. Put the pie down. And no phone will get hurt. It’s chanel. She wants to see us.

    Allie: She’s ready to choose.

    Kate: Well, don’t leave me in suspense, it’s not every day that I make a romantic proclamation in the town square. And I am definitely not used to waiting for an answer.

    Jake: You wanna know if there’s still an us? After last night? Does that answer your question?

    Paulina: Why are you here drinking all alone? Where’s that handsome boyfriend of yours? I was talking about roman brady. Unless you have some other handsome devil in mind?

    Kate: Roman and I broke up.

    Paulina: Oh, well, I’m sorry, I’m sorry to hear that. So you’re drowning your sorrows?

    Kate: Actually, I just found out that someone I was pretty close to has passed away.

    Gabi: What did you do to him?

    Ava: Excuse me?

    Gabi: You. You pulled him back into your mob nonsense, didn’t you?

    Ava: You have no idea what you are talking about. We were mugged. Somebody tried to steal my ring.

    Gabi: You two were engaged?

    Ava: Yeah, jake and I were. We were engaged.

    Gabi: I’m sorry, I– he and I–our breakup was bad, really, really bad. But he still always had my back, even voted his dimera shares so that ej and chad wouldn’t kick me to the curb.

    Tony: I can see how much you’re hurting, brother.

    Ej: You still have your sight then?

    [Sighs] Sorry. I’m not myself. Or maybe I am. Not enough liquor in the world, right?

    Tony: Chad’s in pain, too. You know, father used to lash out like this when he was hurting.

    Ej: That he did.

    Tony: But he put family first, no matter our differences and no matter how badly we hurt each other.

    [Somber music]

    Chad: Congratulations.

    Ej: Chad. I don’t want you to go.

    Chad: You know, I haven’t spent a single night in our room since abby died? I’ve been sleeping in the guest room. A guest, in my own home. But it doesn’t feel like that now. This isn’t my home anymore. Not without her. I’ll have harold pack up the rest of my things.

    Chanel: So I’ve decided which one of you I wanna be with.

    Paulina: I’m sorry about your loss. Even the ones who break our hearts, they still keep a place there.

    Kate: You got that right.

    Paulina: To jake.

    Kate: To jake.

    Kayla: There was nothing we could do, steve.

    Steve: Poor ava.

    Ava: What is your problem?

    Gabi: What?

    Ava: Jake’s body isn’t even cold and you’re talking about voting shares?

    Gabi: Ej is coming after me. He wants my job. And, you know, some of us still work for a living.

    Ava: Yeah, and some of us aren’t living at all. And all you can do is think about what jake’s death is gonna cost you.

    Gabi: This is not personal. This is business. If ej gets his hands on jake’s dimera shares, then I’ve got nothing that– there’s nothing– there’s no way I can stop it. Or maybe there is. Ej wouldn’t get jake’s shares if they went to jake’s widow.

    Transcript provided by Suzanne

    Bill: You really are alive. You’re safe now.

    [Li sighs with relief]

    Finn: Mom?

    Li: Finn, thank god. Finn.

    Finn: Mom.

    Li: Finn! Thank god.

    Finn: Mom.

    Li: Ah. Finn.

    Liam: I promise you, he’s going to want to take this call. Liam spencer. No, I can’t hold. Be– because I have information about where sheila carter is, that’s why.

    Finn: You’re here. You’re really alive.

    Li: Nothing can stop me from coming back to you. Nothing… and no one.

    Sheila: How–how is this possible? Because I saw– there’s– there’s– there’s no way that you can– how the hell did you survive that?

    Ridge: Tell me more about this dream.

    Taylor: I was– it was– it was the kind of dream that feels so real. And then you wake up and– finn was alive, ridge. He was– he was– he was so– we were sitting around the bonfire and we were eating. And steffy was laughing like– just laughing. There was a clown. Yeah. Yeah. Who was making s’mores. It was a nice clown. I–I–I don’t know. I mean, I knew it was a dream, obviously. But I–I wish it wasn’T. I just– I wish I could just close my eyes and go back to that place. Back to the place where f-finn and steffy are together.

    Pilot: Got more word

    on the wi-fi.


    we lost connection

    until we land in monaco.

    Hope it’s not too much

    of an inconvenience.

    Ridge: Great.

    Taylor: You know what? A few hours is not going to kill us, ridge.

    Ridge: I just– I don’t like being unavailable with– with– with everything that’s happening right now.

    Taylor: I know. I just want to be there for steffy. I really do. I miss her and the kids so much. I know that I’m the one that said that she should go–

    Ridge: Let’s not do that again, please.

    Taylor: Okay.

    Ridge: Whatever happened, happened. I for one am very happy that steffy is out of L.A., With sheila running around. I think out of the country is a perfect place for her to be, right now.

    Liam: Come on. Pick up. Pick up. Pick up. Pick up. Pick up. Pick up.

    [Phone rings]

    Deputy chief baker: Liam spencer. I understand you have some information for me.

    Liam: We found her.

    Deputy chief baker: Sheila carter? Where?

    Liam: So, I don’t have an exact location for you yet, but–

    Deputy chief baker: Come on. Liam. I don’t have time for speculation.

    Liam: No, this is what I’m trying to tell you. My dad is on his way over there right now with li finnegan. Now, she doesn’t know the street address, but she thinks she can lead him–

    Deputy chief baker: How does li finnegan know where sheila is?

    Liam: Because she was just there with sheila… and finn.

    Deputy chief baker: With a dead man?

    Liam: Yeah, well, that’s kind of the thing, finn is actually alive. Li has been um– well, she saved him, and she’s been keeping him alive somehow this entire time.

    Deputy chief baker: What?

    Liam: Can you just– can you just trust me for once, please?

    Deputy chief baker: I don’t know what’s harder to believe, john finnegan’s alive or your father’s chasing sheila carter without police back up?

    Liam: I know. This is why I’m calling you. My dad is going to text me the address as soon as he has it.

    Deputy chief baker: I’ll give you my cell. I want you to call me immediately, as soon as you hear from him.

    Liam: Okay. Go. Great. You just– you keep your phone on you, okay?

    Hope: Finn is alive?

    Finn: It’s just– I just– I thought that– I thought that you were dead. Was she– was sheila lying? She said that you crashed your car.

    Sheila: No. She did crash. I saw it blow up with my own eyes. There is no way you could have survived that.

    Li: But I did. Just like finn. Mother and son overcome whatever you throw at us. Not that there’s anything else for you to throw. Not from prison. You’re done, sheila.

    Bill: Yes, you are. You’re never going to hurt anyone else ever again. Hi, I’m karen.

    Taylor: You know, when I called steffy before we took off, I should have left a voicemail. But… with the wi-fi down–

    Ridge: I don’t think us showing up is the worst surprise.

    Taylor: I just don’t– I don’t want to show up out of nowhere and throw off her progress.

    Ridge: We won’T. Let’s try to stay positive. We’re going to see our daughter today.

    Hope: So, your dad is really on his way to find finn, right now? Finn, who is alive and well?

    Liam: Yep. Well, I mean, I don’t know about well, considering he’s with sheila right now. But, uh– yeah. Basically, we think finn is still alive.

    Hope: I don’t even understand how sheila got involved in all this. How did it go from–

    Liam: She-

    Hope: Li taking care of him–

    Liam: She just– she tracked li down, somehow.

    Hope: So, she was able to find where li was keeping finn?

    Liam: Yeah. I mean, li said that she just showed up at the apartment and, like, pushed li out of the way.

    Hope: Li must’ve been so scared, knowing what sheila is capable of it. Wait. I– was that why li was all disoriented and traumatized? Did sheila do something to her?

    Liam: Well yeah. I mean, I don’t know exactly how it went down, but– yeah, I mean, that’s why my dad found li in the alley, barely able to speak, shaking. Like–

    Hope: Thank god he found her.

    Liam: Yeah. I just hope that he doesn’t do anything stupid because sheila’s way too dangerous. And the police need to be there.

    [Text notification]

    Hope: Is it?

    Liam: Oh, my god. They found the apartment. They found the apartment. Now, I just have to make sure the police get there in time.

    [Phone rings]

    Deputy chief baker: Baker.

    Liam: Got an address for you.

    Deputy chief baker: Text it to me. I’m headed to my car now.

    [Texting sounds]

    [Liam sighs]

    Sheila: What is wrong with all of you? You act like I wanted this to happen. I never wanted to hurt finn. I never wanted to see you drive off a bridge.

    Li: Oh, you came chasing after me as a friendly gesture?

    Sheila: What was I supposed to do? You were going to the police.

    Finn: So, you admit you caused the crash?

    Sheila: Oh, no. No, I did not cause the crash.

    Li: You had everything to do with that crash. The only reason I was in that car is because of you. She attacked me when I tried calling the police.

    Finn: What? You–

    Bill: Don’T.

    Li: I barely got away. I was not about to let her stop me. Not when your life was on the line. Next thing I knew, I was going over a bridge. Somehow, I survived.

    Bill: No. No. No. You are not going anywhere.

    Sheila: Let go of me. Let go of me. So help me god, I will–

    Bill: You’ll what? What? You’re going back behind bars for the rest of your pathetic life. At metro by t-mobile… you can save more…

    Sheila: Every decision I made was in your best interest. Would you just to tell them– please tell them how I saved you, how I nursed you back to health.

    Li: You shot two people and left them for dead. Ran me off the road–

    Finn: Wait. Wait. Wait. Mom? Two people? What are you talking about, two people?

    Li: After she shot you, she turned the gun on steffy.

    Finn: No, no, no, no, no, no, no.

    Li: No, honey.

    Finn: No.

    Li: It’s okay. Finn, she survived. She survived.

    Sheila: She threatened me. She threatened me. Finn, something just snapped. I’m sorry.

    Bill: No, no, no, no, no. Listen. Listen, I know you want to take her out. We all do. Listen to me. Let the police deal with her. All right? There you go. You got something more important to worry about.

    Finn: You’re right. You’re right.

    Bill: Let’s get you–

    Finn: Yeah.

    Bill: Let’s get you to steffy. I’ll get you to steffy.

    Finn: That’s fine. I’m not wasting another breath on you. After knowing what you’ve done. I am never going to speak to you again. Ever.

    Sheila: Please.

    Finn: No. You– I need to get to steffy. As soon as possible.

    Li: She’s out of the country.

    Bill: No. No. No. We’re going to take my jet as soon as the police get here.

    Li: Go now. Please go.

    Bill: No. I’m not leaving you with this crazy bitch.

    Li: It’s fine, she’s tied up. Please, please take my son. Find his wife. Please.

    Bill: Okay. Just got to call liam first.

    [Cell phone rings]

    Liam: Dad?

    Bill: Hey. Ah, finn is alive. And we got sheila.

    Liam: Oh, my god. Are you kidding me right now? It’s true, finn’s alive. He’s actually alive. And what about– what about sheila? Is she in custody?

    Bill: No. That’s why I’m calling you. Are the police on their way?

    Liam: Yeah, they should be there any minute.

    Bill: Okay, great. I’m going to get finn to steffy. Reunite him with his family.

    Bill: You ready?

    Finn: You have no idea.

    Finn: You okay with this?

    Li: Yes. Of course. Go find your beautiful wife. Go.

    Finn: Thanks mom. All right. I love you.

    Li: I love you, too.

    Sheila: Finn, wait. Finn. No matter what type of dog you have…

    Li: Did you really think you were going to get away with this?

    Sheila: I wasn’t trying to get away with anything. You don’t understand that, do you? I got exactly what I wanted. My son is alive. He’s recovering. He’s on his way to reunite with his wife. What more could I want?

    Li: You’re not fooling me. I know exactly what you wanted. Finn and hayes in your life. Adoring you like the mother of the year. Instead, finn hates you. You’ll never see him or his son ever again. The only thing you’ll be seeing is the inside of a prison cell.


    Mike: What the hell is going on?

    Shelia: Cut me loose, mike. We got to get out of here, now. Now. Come on.

    Mike: Here we go.

    Sheila: Come on, mike. Come on. Come on.-

    Pilot: Time to fasten those seatbelts.

    We’ll be landing shortly in

    monaco, where it’s sunny

    with a high of 78 degrees.

    Ridge: All right. You ready for this?

    Taylor: Um, no.

    Ridge: I’m not either. At least we will be not ready together. So that’s nice.

    Taylor: Oh, ridge. I just miss her so much. I just– I just want to squeeze her.

    Ridge: Me too.

    Hope: Ridge still isn’t answering.

    Liam: Yeah, steffy isn’t either. I’m sure it’s the time difference. But, oh my god, she needs to know that finn is alive. I can’t believe I just said that sentence out loud. Finn is alive.

    Mike: There. That should do it.

    Shelia: Thank you, michael. Thank you. We got to go.

    Mike: Yeah. Okay. Okay. Yeah, let’s go.

    Sheila: Well– separately, though. We’ll rendezvous later.

    Mike: Yeah. Sure. Right. Yeah. But how will I know where… to find you. Ow… what the hell, lady?

    Li: How could you do that?

    Mike: I should have hit you harder.

    Li: How could you let that psycho go?

    Mike: Get out of my way.

    Li: Make me.

    Mike: You want to end up back on the floor? Because I will lay you out.

    Deputy chief baker: Everybody, hands up now!

    Mike: Ah, hell.

    Deputy chief baker: Where’s sheila?

    Li: She’s gone. Sheila got away.

    Bill: Hey. You must be feeling better, all cleaned up.

    Finn: Yeah.

    [Finn sighing]

    Bill: Don’t worry. We’ll be taking off any minute now.

    Finn: Great. Hey, I am– I don’t know how to thank you for… all this.

    Bill: The smile on steffy’s face when she sees you, will be thanks enough.

    Finn: Can I borrow your phone?

    Bill: Of course. Trying to reach steffy again?

    Finn: Yeah. Voicemail again. God, I’ve missed your voice. Steffy, baby, it’s um– it’s me. It’s– um… it’s finn. I’m– I’m alive, honey. Your husband is alive. And um– I wish you would have picked up. But there’s so much I need to tell you. But what– you need to know is I’m on a plane, and we’re about to take off right now. I’m on my way to you. And… I can’t wait to see you and hold you. I love you so much. And– you, hayes and kelly. But it won’t be long. We’ll be together soon. Soon, steffy.

    Transcript provided by Suzanne


    [ Laughs ] Wow. Who knew you were an expert with a hatchet? Right? Yeah. I don’t know if it’s my baseball skills that translate, or, uh, sam seems to think that I was a frontier explorer back in another life. What about this life? How are things with you? And, no, this is not an official inquiry. I’m just asking.

    [ Laughs ] Yeah. Things are good, man. I mean, it took me a while to re-acclimate to the pressures and chaos of police work, but I’m glad to be back. The pcpd is glad to have you. Okay. And what? I understand you turned down that undercover bust in manhattan. Could’ve raised your profile. Yeah. Yeah, it could have, probably. But, you know, I-I’m a single dad, mac. I gotta stay local if I can. Your priorities are here. I get that. But it’s important to consider your future. What are you — what are you talking about, man? You want to start a side hustle or something? You need a partner? What, you want to open up a cop bar? I’m thinking chief of detectives. How you feeling about your first therapy session?

    [ Sighs ] Resigned. Wow. That enthusiastic, huh? I’m sorry, I just don’t see the point. It was a slip. The drugs are out of my system now. I won’t go looking for more.

    [ Sighs ] I just want to move on. And talking to a psychiatrist will help you do that. I know. Do you? Yes. You don’t have to stay here, brando. I promise I won’t make a run for it the second you’re gone. I’m not thinking that you’re gonna do that, but I don’t mind waiting for you. See, but… I mind. Any double vision? Felty: [ Sighs ] Nope. Well, it’s official. You don’t have a concussion. You couldn’t have figured that out without waking me up every hour? I’m exhausted. Better safe than sorry. You took quite the beating.

    [ Groans ] Yup, I’m getting that sense. The police will want to talk to you. Looking good, boss. You got a mean right hook. We gotta get you in the ring some time. Nah, mma’s more my sport. Less padding to get in the way. What are you talking about? That’s not a sport. That’s — that’s like street fighting. Well, you’re no stranger to that, right? Just ask that paparazzi guy. I do what needs to be done. And you do it well. No one can accuse you of going soft, that’s for sure. How bad did spencer’s testimony hurt trina? Well, spencer did reinforce the fact that trina had ample time to hide the cell phone, also that she’d been drinking, and that she was angry with cameron and josslyn, but none of that is a surprise to me. A.D.A. Arden is presenting exactly the case that I expected her to present. What she did not expect is the opening that spencer just gave us, which I intend to take full advantage of. Alright. There’s no signs of you-know-who. Leave it to esme to want to make an entrance. Don’t worry. Diane’s not gonna let her get away with anything on the stand. Diane’s amazing. But we all know, when it comes to esme, you never know what you’re gonna get. Esme, what are you up to? It’s about time. Where have you been? Oh, it may shock you, but, um, I have a life, too. Trina robinson isn’t the center of the universe. We should go over your testimony. Mm, I don’t want it to sound rehearsed. Ava: Oh, don’t be silly.

    [ Cellphone chimes ] Esme always makes sure her lies sound completely natural. Excuse me. I didn’t ask to be called as a witness for the prosecution, you know. Save the victim act, esme. I’m the only person here, and I’ve got your number. Really? Really. Because there are a few things that you don’t know — a few things you don’t want to know. I’ll pass. Don’t walk away from me. I could destroy your world, ava. Try it. I dare you.

    I am so tired of you lookingdown on me, acting so superior. You’re lucky I tolerate you at all. One word to nikolas and you’d be out on the street. Ha! See, that’s funny, because as I recall, when I first moved in,

    you were the one who got the boot. I left of my own volition. Things are different now. Nikolas and I are better than ever. So you think. What the hell does that mean? Just that maybe you don’t know your husband as well as you thought you did. Nikolas is full of surprises. Such as? Oh, well, for starters — esme. Stop. You’re too late. I am ending this right here, right now. Rory: Can I get you anything? A time machine would be nice. So that when a jerk calling himself “victor” tries to hit on me, I can walk the other way and not let spencer and esme into my life. Not be so stupid. Sorry. I’m fresh out of time machines.

    [ Chuckles ] Darn. Trusting people isn’t stupid, by the way. Maybe not. But, man, it hurts when they do let you down. You’re chief of detectives, mac. I’m not going anywhere just yet. But when I do retire, I want to make sure that my office is in good hands, and I can’t think of a more stand-up guy than you.

    [ Sighs ] Hey, come on. You’re irreplaceable, mac. Who — who can replace you? That’s not true. Chief of d’s would be a good fit for you. Unless you’re not interested. Oh, no. Listen, I’m honored. I-I just — I don’t think past tomorrow. I just want my life to revolve around sam and our kids. Whoa, did I just hear my name? Oh, yeah. You did. Hi. Hi. [ Laughs ] Uh, sam, you haven’t seen felicia, have you? Oh, yeah, actually, check your texts. Because I — yeah, I think she texted you. The two of you are needed at home for babysitting duty. So I see. Well, I guess we’ll just have to reschedule our couples hatchet throwing challenge. You know he’s a ringer. Yeah, I saw that.

    [ Laughs ] Was felicia able to help you with that case? Yeah, she gave me excellent advice. Thank you. Good, good. I’m sure I’ll hear all about it when I get home. And, dante, think it over. I’ll do that. Think what over? Uh, can we… can we talk? Yeah, sure. Yeah? What do you want to talk about? About our future. Wait, our future? I thought we both learned that with three kids between the two of us that planning anything is pointless. Y-yeah, well, look, I-I know — I know that, you know, rocco and danny and scout keep us busy and it’s crazy, but… I was trying to make it easier. What did you have in mind? Taking the next step. Got my blood pumping, you know, showing that photographer what happens when you mess with the corinthos family. You have to understand something — there’s a time and place for everything. You just can’t go around picking fights. No, I-I get that. I-I just meant… if you ever need something like that done, I’m your guy. I’ll keep that in mind. Do you want me to leave? No, I-it’s not that i want you to leave. I just don’t see a reason for you to hang around, especially after you’ve been holed up with me all day. Go take a walk. Go to the gym. And what about the garage? What about it? You’ve been so focused on me. I’m sure things are piling up. The garage is fine. I’m way more concerned about you. That’s why I’m here. Hey, sasha, brando. Hey. Hi, guys. How are you feeling? Uh, mortified after my meltdown on live tv, but otherwise, I’m good. You have nothing to be embarrassed about. See? See, I 100% agree.

    [ Sighs ] What about you? Have you been okay since you fainted? Yeah. No more dizziness, so…

    [ Laughs ] Thank goodness. We, um — we actually have some — some good news. Well, I could certainly use some of that. I-it’s okay. I won’t break. I already know you’re pregnant. Nikolas, you’re just in time to hear esme’s latest lie. Apparently, this one involves you. Oh, I am so going to enjoy this. Be quiet. Come on. It’s time. You don’t want me as an enemy. Time for what? Trust me. Have a nice chat with your wife. I don’t like the way you’re acting. Makes me think there is something I’m in the dark about. What is it? What did you decide? Will you exonerate trina?

    [ Sighs ] Honestly, is she all you care about? I certainly don’t care about you. Now that I have seen you for who you really are, you are alone in this world once again. It does not have to be that way. I can give you the name of your birth mother if you get up on that stand and you tell the truth. So your precious trina just goes free? That’s right. You realize it’s a wasted effort, right? She’s found her knight in shining armor. It isn’t you. I don’t care. I’m not letting trina go down for something that she didn’t do. So you can either benefit from this or you can leave with nothing. It’s up to you.

    Brando: Wait. For real? For real. We’re having a baby.

    [ Both chuckle ] It really is wonderful news. Thank you. Congratulations. Oh, thanks, man. You know, to be honest, we were a little nervous about telling you after everything you’ve been through. I’m not that far gone that I can’t be happy for my friends. We should celebrate soon. Oh, yeah, we’d love that. Oh, um, will you excuse me for one second? Hey. You should get out of here, too.

    [ Sighs ] Still newlyweds and my wife is sick of me already.

    [ Scoffs ] Never. I’ll see you after my session, okay? Okay. Is it, uh, just me, or did he really not want to leave? It’s not just you. Brando has barely left my side since the incident, which is incredibly sweet. It’s just — it’s a little over-overwhelming, right? A little. [ Laughs ] You know he’s just looking out for you, though, right? I know. And I get that. I just really want things to go back to normal. Are you here for those additional tests? I-I am. Um… but could you please do me a favor? Mm-hmm. I haven’t told michael that there could be an issue, so just please don’t say anything in front of him. I will always respect a patient’s privacy. Thank you. But as your colleague, willow — I don’t want to worry him over what might be nothing. Once I know what my baby and i are dealing with, then I will fill michael in. Here. You dropped this.

    [ Laughs ] Thanks. Mm-hmm. The hell’s the matter with you? [ Sniffs ] Um… [ Laughs ] So, like, uh, you started to talk about our future, and then you got down on one knee.

    [ Laughs ] Wait, did you think I was gonna propose to you? Yes! Oh. Wait, so you weren’t talking about marriage? No! Hell no. We’re not ready to get married. Right? Right. Right. I mean — yes.

    [ Sighs ] Gosh. I think my heart stopped there for a second.

    [ Laughs ] I’m very sorry about that. Yeah. So, um, what was it that you were talking about? Uh, us living together. Oh. “Oh.” Is that a — is that a good “oh” or a bad “oh”? Uh, surprised “oh.” Surprised. I-I just — I don’t know. I guess I really haven’t thought about us living together. Really? Oh. Why not? I have your mother’s name, current address. Hm, in portugal? You could be face to face with her tomorrow. Of course I want to know where I came from, who I came from, but I don’t need your help to do it. What? No deal, spence. Turns out I am not as alone as you think I am. I’ll find my birth mother a different way. I’m beginning to feel very foolish. Why? Because I was so confident that esme was bluffing, spewing her regular dose of lies and nonsense. But then you came… tearing in the way you did, and… it’s obvious there is a secret. I’m so…sorry. I-I-I should have gone with my first instinct, which was to tell you right away. Tell me now. I love you… …so much.

    [ Voice breaking ] But I made a huge mistake. What — and when I say that — what kind of mistake, nikolas? I thought we were… over, and I, uh… I slept with esme.

    Mm-hmm. And our kids get along great together. I know they do. So you’re telling me the thought’s never crossed your mind? I mean, yeah, I guess so. You guess so? Yes, the thought has crossed my mind. Okay, so you have thought about it. Fleetingly. Guess that’s still thinking about it. I mean, our life is really, really good — great together, don’t you think? Mm-hmm. Okay, so why change it? I don’t know. Maybe we can make it even greater. I gotta go. Are you kidding me? No, no. You can’t just throw that on me and leave. What? Yeah. It’s — I didn’t mean to have a huge conversation about it. What are you talking about? It’s a huge conversation. It’s the logical next step, no? I mean, I’m not opposed to it. That’s a ringing endorsement, detective. Don’t — don’t be mad at me. I’m — I’m just — okay, I will… start thinking about it more frequently and less fleetingly, okay? Okay. Okay. I love our life together. I do, too. Good. Brando. Boss? Yeah, you can go. Something up? How you doing? It’s good to see you out. Yeah, um, wasn’t exactly my choice. Sasha practically forced me to leave the hospital. Hospital? Yeah. She’s got her first therapy session today. That’s a good thing, right? H-how is she doing otherwise? Better. Yeah. She’s getting back to her old self. You seem worried. I am. Arden: You were at the cabin on the night in question, is that correct? Yes, ma’am. And in your opinion, how was the defendant acting? Trina was drinking. I-I mean, we all were, and I was worried about her, but trina was definitely the most affected. Then she got very upset with josslyn and cameron. Upset about what? Well, trina admitted that she felt shut out and betrayed when joss and cam got together. And then what happened? She stormed off to her room — or “stumbled” is probably a more accurate description. She was the one saying those things. She put those words in my mouth. Don’t react. We will get our chance, and when we do, watch out. I’ll see you later? Sounds good, uh… take care of yourself, okay? I will.

    [ Elevator bell dings ] I hope you weren’t too stressed out about telling me you’re pregnant. How did you find out? I overheard the nurses talking the day you fainted. It wasn’t too hard to put two and two together. Oh, so you’ve known almost as long as I have. Which means you knew before going on “home & heart.” Hello, hello, and what brings you lovely ladies to general hospital today? Oh, let’s see. Um, what do we call that? None of your business. Right. None of your business. Okay, well, you’re looking pretty cozy over there. Does that mean you’ve forgiven ms. Gilmore for mowing down your mother? You had sex with esme. Yes. And I regretted it immediately. I have no other excuse, other than I was weak. Oh, so weak that you cheated on your wife with your son’s girlfriend. No, esme manipulated me. Oh, so there are more excuses. And you were having serious doubts about us. Oh, and more! Nikolas: I-I felt like I lost — stop talking! How long? How long have you been slithering into esme’s room? On the regular, as they say? It was only one time. How noble and restrained of you. Listen, ava — when? Where? Did you take esme into our bed? I would never.

    [Laughing] You’d never what? Betray me that way? I thought we were over. I couldn’t believe when you showed up, wanting to give us another chance. It w– and I found you in the sitting room. And the door was closed and locked. Oh, god. You said it was the wind,

    [Crying] And I believed you. And you said that you had fallen asleep, and that’s why you were so disheveled. Was she there? Who? Esme? She was on the turret.

    [ Sobs ] Oh. Oh, of course she was. And so the two of you have, what? You’ve been making fun of me all this time? It wasn’t like that. Then tell me, please, tell me, what was it like?! It was a moment of madness. Things were so cold between us, and you — you were talking about walking away. I thought I lost you. I was devastated. Mm-hmm. And esme kissed you and made it all better? She saw her chance, and she took it. You know how that girl is. Poor you. Seduced by a high school graduate. I know I’m responsible for my actions. And I said I — I was weak. You’re stupid. Just try to — oh, no. Oh, no. Never again. You have touched me for the last time. Spencer cassadine testified that you left the room after you argued with josslyn and cameron. Is that true? I might have. I don’t really remember. If you had, it would have given you ample time to plant that cell phone, wouldn’t it? It would. Just like everyone else. Whose idea was this ski trip? Mine. I wanted spence to have one last fun trip before he went to spring ridge. Nice trip with his friends. Yes. But not your friends. I don’t understand? Well, trina, cameron, josslyn — they’re not your friends. I tried to befriend them. Did you? You didn’t include them in the planning. I mean, the trip, the drinks, the drinking game — that was all your idea. In fact, the entire evening, you orchestrated all of it. And you’re jealous of spencer’s friends, especially his friendship with trina. Objection. Is there a question in here, or is the defense simply going to tell the witness how she feels? The A.D.A.’S own witness testified that esme would never hurt trina because she knew he and the defendant were so close, and in doing so, he opened the door to the question of motive. I’ll allow it. Must have been intimidating, joining that foursome — a group of friends that had been so close for so long. I held my own. Did you think they welcomed you with open arms?

    [ Laughs ] Oh. You find that funny? No, I would not say that. What would you say? That I was met with hostility and resentment, and no matter how hard I tried, they never gave me a chance. That must have been frustrating. It was. So frustrating that you intended to teach them a lesson. A.D.A. Arden: Objection! Withdrawn. No further questions. Ms. Prince, when you and spencer left the cabin, where were josslyn and cameron? The living room. And trina? I assume that she was in her bedroom, but I didn’t see her, so I can’t confirm. Hmm. Thank you. No more questions, your honor. You may step down.

    [ Sighs ] Diane did it. I mean, she cracked esme’s mask. Let’s just pray it’s enough. Hey, boss. D-d-don’t call me that. We shouldn’t even be meeting right now, but I need a progress report. How are things going with sonny? I have your father right where you want him. And tonight’s winning number, 43 yes! Noooo… quick, the quicker picker upper! Bounty picks up messes quicker and is 2x more absorbent, so you can use less. Bounty, the quicker picker upper. Ice cream is like whooping cough, it’s not just for kids. Whooping cough is highly contagious for people of any age. And it can cause violent uncontrollable coughing fits. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about whooping cough vaccination because it’s not just for kids. My mother’s death was a tragic accident. And if you want any further comment, you can contact my attorney, diane miller, or you can always speak to michael. You know, I’ll be sure to tell him you’ve been asking. Oh, are you implying he might punch me again? No. Why would he do that when it’s so much easier to sue you for libel? Okay. And what about you? Huh? Did you have guilt over killing your friend’s mom contribute to your “televised breakdown” of yours? I am getting security. Yeah. You are nothing but a disgusting vulture. Go feed on someone else’s unhappiness. I’m fresh out. Yeah, I’m just giving the public what it wants, sweetie. And that is my cue. That man might be the literal worst. You had no problem handling him. Michael gave me a tutorial. When in doubt, invoke my lawyer.

    [ Chuckles ] I’ll make sure to remember that. Are you sure you’re all right? I’m fine. Hey, we will sic diane on him if he writes even one word of that garbage. Let’s be real, willow — nothing he said was a lie. The court will take a brief recess. We’ll resume in 20 minutes.

    [ Gavel bangs ]

    [ Indistinct conversations ] Well, I think that went pretty well, don’t you? I hope so. Are we still planning to do the same defense strategy? I intend to call one witness and one witness only — trina. I — I still don’t think that’s a great idea. Trust me. This case comes down to character. Whether or not the jury thinks that trina is so jealous of her friends that she would actually set out to humiliate them. We then call character witnesses to — to speak on her behalf. Josslyn and cameron did that when they testified. Josslyn was especially adamant in her defense of trina. Oh, yes. Hostile witness here. The jury knows that you think that trina is a friend worth defending. Now, this is her chance to show them why — who she is and who she is not. I want to do it. Are you sure? It’s like diane said — it’s not enough for people to talk about me. I need to show the jury the kind of person I am. The best kind. It’s a lot of pressure. This is my future on the line, dad. I should be the one to defend it.

    [ Door opens ] Hey. I’m, uh, detective falconeri. You remember me? Yeah, I remember you. Good. Whoa. You, uh — you really got worked over, huh? What happened? I got mugged. But you still got your phone and your wallet, I hear.

    [ Chuckles ] Not a very successful mugging, huh? Guess I got lucky. Alright. You know, I get it’s your job to get all up in people’s faces and snap photos, and then sell it for money… it’s a living.

    [ Chuckles ] Are you sure you don’t know who your attacker was?

    [ Laughs ] Like I would tell you, of all people, if I did.

    [ Laughs ]

    [ Monitor beeping ] Why not? What’s so special about me? I just visited felty, made sure he wouldn’t talk. Sonny sent you? I volunteered. It was another chance to show initiative. Another chance? There was a complication when we went after the photographer. Your sister, josslyn, recorded the beat down on her phone. Hey, hold on, wait, w-what was my sister, josslyn, doing there? She was out for a run, I guess. She confronted sonny and threatened to take the recording to the cops. Sonny tried talking her down, but josslyn wasn’t having it. When he couldn’t make any progress with her, he took off, left me standing in an alley with the unconscious photographer. I-I threw myself on josslyn’s mercy, told her that even if sonny didn’t go to prison over this, I definitely would. She said sonny has trashed enough lives, and she wasn’t going to add mine to the list, then she erased the video. Listen, just stay away from my sister, do you understand me? I’ll keep my distance. Okay, the point is, sonny was grateful. I think I can build off that gratitude, maybe offer to be his personal bodyguard. Alright, don’t — don’t — don’t appear too eager. Sonny is a lot of things, but stupid is not one of them. Yeah, how do I get someone like sonny to trust me? You be what he wants you to be — something that he lost. What’s that? His son. I pray things go well with the psychiatrist today. Sasha needs someone to confide in. It must be difficult that that someone isn’t you. I mean, I’m her husband. Mm-hmm. I’m supposed to be there for her. And you will be. She’s not making it easy. And every time I try to reach out to her, sasha just shuts me down. I know I tell you this all the time, but you really gotta show you’re not going anywhere, no matter what. No matter what. Look at me. You disgust me. I am so sorry. I-I know I keep saying that — my god, to cheat on me with esme, of all people — a woman I can’t sta– a girl I can’t stand. Hardly a woman, young enough to be your daughter. Don’t say it like that. Like what? Like I’m the one that took advantage. It was esme. I swear, she planned the whole thing. And right after it happened, I was gonna confess, but esme talked me out of it. I’m sure that must’ve been very difficult. You have always been a coward, scurrying away from your problems instead of facing them. That’s not true. I came here today because I was gonna tell you everything. Oh, how convenient. When he’s caught in a trap, like a rat, he confesses mere moments before esme could throw it in my face. I suppose you want me to thank you. I know that you’re angry. Oh, you’re right about that. I thought I married a man. You are no man. You are a spineless weakling. And I am gonna burn you to the ground.

    why would you feel you couldn’t talk to me in particular? You’re a cop, so… are we through here? Yeah, man. Yeah. Take it easy. You too.

    [ Door closes ]

    [ Door opens ] My little paparazzo. You said you have something for me? I’m so glad you care so much. Well, if it bleeds, it leads. So who’d you cross? I think I have a bigger story in mind. Ask for his advice. Sonny loves to, uh, pass on his wisdom. So let him mentor me. Yeah, but don’t fall for his act, okay? The only person that sonny cares about is himself. He’s vulnerable now without jason, and he knows it. Morgan — his right-hand man. Yeah. Jason actually started working for sonny when he was younger than you. Sonny taught him everything about the business. Eventually, jason was running everything. He even knew where the bodies were buried. And jason would have died before he flipped on sonny, and if he did, sonny would be doing life without parole. You want me to follow in jason’s footsteps? Just be in the right place with the right attitude when he starts to repeat the pattern. Look, sonny needs someone to look up to him, so be that someone. Where’s your girlfriend? Esme is not my girlfriend anymore. Oh, you finally realized what a crazy person she is? I’ve actually known that for a while now. Mm, sure didn’t act like it. Well, I was trying to — you know what? Never mind. It doesn’t matter. It didn’t work. What didn’t work? I have to go. Okay. How you feeling?

    [ Sighs ] Nervous, but I’m glad I get to tell my side of the story. Just make sure that you tell them everything. I have an alibi for when the sex tape was posted. I was with someone.

    [ Sighs ] Why didn’t you say anything before? Who were you with? Spencer. I’m ready. Ms. Miller. Not now, spencer. It’s important. Spencer, we’re in the middle of a trial, in case you hadn’t noticed. That’s why you need to listen to me. I can fix this.

    I’m tired of sonny taking whatever he wants. It’s time he faced some consequences.

    [ Door opens ] What are you doing here? Sasha. Sasha, you need to hear me. You were not responsible for harmony’s death. I was driving too fast. Even if you had been going the speed limit, my mother must have come out of nowhere — so focused on getting away, she ran into the road without looking. Who could possibly be prepared for that? It was an accident. I know that. And I really hope you do, too. What you got, huh?

    [ Groans ] It’s huge. Well, I’ll be the judge of that. What if sasha gilmore, the face of deception, was on drugs the night she ran over harmony miller? Spencer, I need you to understand, this does not guarantee that a jury will find trina not guilty, and it could put you in jeopardy. I know, but it’ll help, right? It will help. Then I want to do it. I have to. Court is back in session.

    [ Door closes ] Slight change in plans. Counselor, you may call your first witness. Thank you, your honor. The defense calls spencer cassadine.

    [ Sniffles ]

    [ Sighs ] No. I am not losing her without a fight. I’ve got to get the hell out of here.

    [ Sighs ] Yes.

    [ Door opens ] You conniving little whore. –

    Update written by Joseph

    Tony talks to Allie at the Bakery in the town square and asks where Chanel is. Allie says it’s just her today and mentions having to choose between peach or cherry pie. Allie then notes that Chanel has an important choice of her own to make and she hopes that she makes the right choice. Johnny interrupts and says Chanel is going to choose him.

    Chanel paces at home, wondering why it’s so hard to choose between Johnny or Allie. Paulina walks in and questions her still not making a choice. Chanel says she told them that she would decide by today, but she doesn’t know what to do. Paulina tells her that she’s here and she’s on the case.

    At the DiMera Mansion, Chad is on the phone, leaving a message for Rafe, complaining that he found out in The Intruder that Sarah was brought in for questioning as apparently she was in the DiMera Mansion on the night of Abigail’s murder. Chad angrily asks Rafe to call him back because he’d really like to know what the hell is going on and why his wife’s murderer isn’t behind bars yet. EJ walks in and wonders if Chad is going to join Abigail’s murderer behind bars. EJ tells Chad that he needs an answer to if he’s going to give him his shares or is he going to send Chad to prison.

    Kayla informs Ava that Jake is dead, which shocks her. Ava argues that Kayla is wrong like what happened with Tripp. Kayla calls it a miracle that Tripp is alive but assures that is not the case with Jake and that he’s gone.

    Kate goes to the DiMera office and warns Gabi that she has a target on her back because EJ is gunning for her job. Gabi says that’s nothing new. Kate reveals that EJ now has the ammunition to do it because she has signed over her shares to him and she believes Chad is about to do the same.

    Chad tells EJ that his latest power play hasn’t been one of his biggest concerns since his wife was murdered and now it turns out that Sarah Horton might have had something to do with it or at least know who did. EJ feels he’s given Chad enough sympathy for his loss but that’s over. EJ argues that Chad and Kate sent him to prison for a crime he did not commit. EJ tells Chad that it’s time to pay the piper and he will accept two forms of repayment for his treachery as discussed. EJ asks if Chad is going to continue grieving in this house or be locked up for his crimes.

    Tony questions Chanel having to make a choice. Allie says may the best twin win. Johnny says he will and he’s sure Tony is on his side. Tony wants to remain impartial as he’s very fond of Chanel and it’s her choice alone. Tony wishes them both the best of luck. Allie and Johnny ask which pie he prefers. Tony instead walks away.

    Paulina is glad Chanel finally realized she can’t have her cake and eat it too. Chanel knows she has to choose one, but the problem is that she loves them both. Paulina tells her to ask herself what she prefers, penis or vagina? Chanel says it’s not about that for her. Paulina states that sex is very important in a healthy relationship. Chanel figures it’s not the most healthy thing to discuss with her mother. Chanel then admits that sex isn’t a problem with either of them and to her, it’s about the individual person. Paulina suggests breaking it down in pros and cons, then maybe the choice will become clear.

    EJ informs Chad that Kate has already chosen to surrender her shares to him, so Chad would do best to do the same. Chad tells EJ that he can have the shares and since he’s in such a hurry to consolidate power to feed his bruised ego, he’ll go upstairs and get the certificates right now. EJ then tells Chad to start packing his belongings too because he wants him out of the house.

    Kayla brings Ava to see Jake’s body and tells her to take all the time she needs. Ava sits at Jake’s side and then imagines Jake appearing beside her.

    Chanel doesn’t want to do cons because she wants to keep this positive. Paulina agrees that’s the right attitude and asks who to start with. Chanel decides to start with Johnny but says not to read in to it and it’s just that her relationship with Johnny is a lot less complicated so it will be easier to do him first. Paulina asks what she finds appealing about Johnny and what makes them compatible. Chanel talks about Johnny being funny, handsome, and very smart. Paulina adds that he’s also rich. Chanel states that Johnny is persistent and doesn’t give up. Chanel talks about Johnny taking chances and tells a story of Johnny singing karaoke in Italy, winning over her and the crowd. Paulina notes Johnny being fearless and romantic. Paulina comments that Johnny sounds like a keeper to her which Chanel agrees with.

    Johnny and Allie compete over pie samples. Allie accuses him of taking credit for her work since she baked the pies. Steve interrupts and asks them what’s good today.

    Chad tells EJ that he can’t be serious about him moving out. EJ remarks that Chad doesn’t deserve to live in Stefano’s house since he allowed it to fall in to Gabi’s hands. EJ says if he wasn’t around to get back the deed and title, it may not have been restored to it’s legacy. Chad argues that he’s as much a part of the legacy as he is. EJ calls him a traitor to the legacy and to the family which is why he’s banishing him. Tony walks in with cookies from the bakery but says he’ll come back later. Chad informs Tony that EJ is trying to kick him out of the house. EJ says that’s because Chad is a duplicitous snake.

    Gabi tells Kate that she’s proven time and again that she’s the best person to run the company. Kate guesses she has it all figured out. Gabi knows Kate doesn’t have a job right now, but says she is gainfully employed and running a multi-national corporation. Gabi tells Kate to get going. Gabi then gets a call from Rafe. Gabi starts to tell him that she’s busy but Rafe then informs her of Jake’s death. Gabi hangs up in shock and reveals the news to Kate.

    Ava slaps her imagination of Jake and tells him that he lied to her about them having a future together and that he’d never leave or that he loved her. Jake says that he did love her. Ava argues that she didn’t want to get hurt again and she didn’t want to lose him. Ava calls herself stupid for believing Jake was going to stay but now he left and she’s alone which is her fault.

    Gabi explains to Kate that Rafe said Jake was shot and rushed to the hospital, but he didn’t make it. Gabi states that Jake is gone.

    EJ reminds Tony that Chad was willing to let him rot in prison for a crime he did not commit. Tony understands that miscarriage of justice and that EJ has every right to be upset at being wronged, but he doesn’t believe it’s the time to be seeking retribution. Tony brings up that Chad just lost his wife. EJ says he did too. Chad argues that he can’t compare the two when Abigail was stabbed to death while EJ’s wife just walked out on him and he’s sure Sami’s crazy ass will come walking back. EJ warns Chad that he’s in no position to be throwing stones about crazy wives. EJ tells Chad that he did not take Abigail away from him and that what happened was awful and tragic, but it had nothing to do with him. EJ declares that what happened to him on the other hand had everything to do with Chad.

    Chanel decides this is too much and she needs to take a break. Chanel says no matter what she chooses, she has to hurt someone that she really cares about and she might break apart a life long friendship between twins. Chanel feels she can’t take that away from them. Paulina argues that the heart wants what the heart wants, so whatever choice she makes, they will recover. Paulina states that Johnny and Allie are both young and resourceful, so she should just take care of herself. Chanel agrees to try. Paulina sees how much she is struggling and suggests putting this on hold but Chanel feels she owes it to them to finish this as she’s kept it up for too long. Paulina decides to move along then to asking what she loves about Allie. Chanel responds that they have this rich past friendship and they are truly best friends, who have known each other for what feels like forever but they still surprise each other. Chanel loves Allie’s laugh, smile, and even her sadness. Chanel says Johnny takes everything in stride while Allie feels the world’s joy and it’s pain. Chanel brings up going for a walk in the town square with Allie the other day and talks about how Allie is an empath. Chanel talks about Allie helping an old man find his wallet and says she’s so connected to everyone in the world, so how could she not want to be connected to her. Paulina gets it and can see why she’s struggling as she can hear in her voice how much she loves them both. Paulina says they are very lucky to have her in their lives. Chanel declares that now she has to choose just one.

    Johnny and Allie each try to convince Steve to try their pies. Steve decides to skip the pies and go inside for some cookies. Allie and Johnny argue as Allie then smashes her cherry pie in Johnny’s face. Johnny responds by smashing his peach pie in Allie’s face.

    Paulina tells Chanel that she’s sorry but she doesn’t think they are even close to an answer. Chanel thanks her for trying. Paulina doesn’t know who she should choose or who she’s going to choose, but whoever it is will be the luckiest person on the planet because there isn’t enough people in the world to write down all there is to love about her. Paulina hugs Chanel.

    Ava’s imagination of Jake tells her that he didn’t mean for this to happen. Ava argues that Jake had to be the tough guy. Jake says he wasn’t going to let anyone take their moment away from them. Ava cries that they could’ve replaced the ring but she can’t replace him and now all she has is the ring and a memory. Ava asks what she’s going to do now. Jake encourages that she will figure it out and then she will be okay. Jake hugs her and says he’s sorry that he’s gone, but he didn’t leave her so he’s not like the others and what they had was really special even if it didn’t last very long and she will carry that with her for the rest of her life. Ava cries that she will.

    Gabi cries about how she just left a horrible voicemail for Jake, screaming at him for not showing up to work and she feels so stupid. Kate encourages that there’s no way she could’ve known and she’s sorry for her loss. Kate knows Gabi moved on but that Jake meant a lot to her. Gabi acknowledges that he meant a lot to Kate too as they hug.

    EJ states that he did not kill Abigail but he’s shocked he hasn’t been framed for that. EJ argues that he lost Sami because of Chad’s shameful disloyalty to him and the family and his malicious lies. Chad owns his part in coming between he and Sami, but EJ slept with Sami’s sister all on his own. EJ says that he and Belle are through. Chad guesses he has more free time now to blame him for all his problems. EJ says it’s none of his concern since Chad is moving out. Tony argues that this is their family abode, bringing up Chad’s children, Thomas and Charlotte, and how this is the only home they’ve ever known. EJ remarks that the children are welcome to stay. Chad says he would never leave his children with him, so they are coming with him because it’s clear there’s not enough room for anything in the mansion but EJ’s bruised ego, self pity, and paranoia. Chad then storms out as EJ shouts after him to not let the door hit him on the way out and to not forget to get his certificates to give him his shares.

    Allie and Johnny argue over who Chanel is going to choose. Allie threatens him with another pie but Johnny gets a text so he calls for a truce. Johnny pulls out his phone and sees it’s from Chanel, saying she wants to see them. Allie guesses that Chanel is ready to choose.

    Kate has a drink at the Bistro and thinks back to her relationship with Jake. Paulina enters and asks why Kate is drinking all alone and where her handsome boyfriend Roman is. Kate reveals that they broke up. Paulina says she’s sorry to hear that and asks if Kate is drowning her sorrows. Kate informs her that she actually just found out that someone she was close to has passed away.

    Ava cries over Jake’s body until Gabi storms in and questions what Ava did to him, accusing her of pulling Jake back in to her mob nonsense. Ava tells Gabi that she has no idea what she’s talking about and explains they were mugged as someone tried to steal her ring. Gabi is surprised to find out that they were engaged, which Ava confirms. Gabi apologizes and says their breakup was really bad but he still always had her back and even voted his DiMera shares so EJ and Chad wouldn’t kick her to the curb.

    Tony sees how much EJ is hurting. EJ responds that he’s not himself or maybe he is. EJ has a drink and says there’s not enough liquor in the world. Tony brings up that Chad is in pain too and says Stefano used to lash out like this too when he was hurting, but he put family first no matter their differences or how badly they hurt each other.

    Chad goes to his room and retrieves the certificate of DiMera shares. He goes to leave but stops and looks back at the bed.

    Chad goes back to the living room and gives them to EJ. EJ then stops Chad and says he doesn’t want him to go. Chad brings up that he hasn’t spent a single night in his room since Abigail died as he’s been sleeping in the guest room like a guest in his own home, but it doesn’t feel like that now. Chad declares this is not his home anymore without Abigail. Chad tells EJ that he will have Harold pack up the rest of his things as he then exits.

    Johnny and Allie go to see Chanel. Chanel announces that she has decided which one of them she wants to be with.

    Paulina tells Kate that she’s sorry about her loss as even the ones who break their hearts still keep a place there. Paulina and Kate toast to Jake.

    Steve goes to the hospital, where Kayla informs him that there was nothing they could do for Jake. Steve feels bad for Ava.

    Ava questions Gabi talking about voting shares when Jake’s body isn’t even cold yet. Gabi complains that EJ is coming after her and wants her job as some of them still work for a living. Ava remarks that some of them aren’t living at all. Ava complains that all Gabi can think about is what Jake’s death is going to cost her. Gabi argues that it’s not personal, it’s business, as if EJ gets his hands on Jake’s DiMera shares, then she has nothing and there’s no way she can stop it. Gabi then declares maybe there is because EJ wouldn’t get Jake’s shares if they went to Jake’s widow.

    Y&R Update Thursday, July 28, 2022

    Young & The Restless Update

    Y&R logo

    Recap written by Christine

    At Newman Enterprises, Michael informed Victor that everyone on his security team had been briefed. “The less is said, the better,” Victor said, and Michael agreed. Victor appreciated what Michael did tonight. He thought it was nice knowing he could count on his old friend, Michael, and he said he wouldn’t forget this. Michael offered to stay here and get updates on the case so Victor could go home and check on Victoria. Victor declined, because he knew Nikki was taking care of their daughter. He didn’t want Victoria to get upset by any bad news Chance might have. Victor said Michael could go home to Lauren. Michael said he wouldn’t let Victor talk to Chance without having his attorney present. Michael said that Chance was Victor’s son-in-law, but he was also a damn good cop who was sure to have questions.

    At Crimson Lights, Nick acknowledged telling Sally he’d be available to talk to her about work, but this wasn’t a good time. She didn’t want to talk about work either. She’d been hoping to run into Sharon, because they recently had a good talk about Adam, the most confusing, infuriating and exasperating human she’d ever known. Nick recalled Sally saying she regretted getting involved with Adam. He guessed he understood why she wanted to commiserate with Sharon, since she could relate. Sally plopped down into the chair opposite Nick and began to share her tale of woe, but he apologetically said that he couldn’t talk about the drama between her and Adam right now. She asked what happened to put him in a bad mood.

    Nick didn’t want to talk about what happened. He was sure Sally would read all about it when she got to work tomorrow. Sally dropped the bomb that she was going to resign. “The hell you are,” Nick replied. He wanted an explanation. She revealed that she overheard Adam tell Sharon that he broke up with Sally because he thought that was best for her. Nick contended that everyone already knew that was why Adam broke up with Sally, but it didn’t matter. Sally thought it changed everything. She said she wasn’t okay with Adam making that sacrifice. Nick thought it was clear that Adam didn’t care what Sally thought, since he made the decision without consulting her and was continuing to lie to her. Sally said Adam made a stupid mistake, but he thought he was doing the right thing. Nick felt Sally was just making excuses for Adam, just like Sharon and Chelsea did and just like Victoria did with Ashland. She denied doing that. “What is wrong with you? You’ve got this incredible opportunity. It is right in front of your face. You just have to grab it. And you’re willing to throw it all away for this guy who stomped on your heart with both feet. Is this all the self-respect you have?,” he asked. Sally was taken aback by Nick’s harshness. She bet this had more to do with Victoria than her. She told him not to put his baggage on her, because he didn’t know her that well. He apologized and said she could do what she wanted, but she shouldn’t confuse Adam treating her like dirt as a sign of their incredible love – a lot of women had made that mistake with Adam. Nick got summoned to Newman by Victor. He told Sally he hoped she reconsidered this terrible decision, and he left.

    Sally called Chloe into the office late. Chloe didn’t mind coming in, since she was so excited about this new position. Chloe noticed that Sally didn’t seem as enthusiastic as she was before. “This is about Adam, isn’t it?” Chloe asked. Chloe wondered if Adam was angry with Sally for staying on while he quit. Sally said that Adam broke up with her so their relationship wouldn’t get in the way of her job. Sally explained that she told Adam that she didn’t want to get the job this way, and she was going to turn in her resignation. Chloe hoped Sally had realized that quitting would be crazy. Sally said she’d been dismissing being CEO as just a job, but the truth was it was an amazing once in a lifetime opportunity. She’d mentioned her plans to Nick, and he told her that she’d be one more in a long line of women making bad decisions to impress Adam. Sally was confused, and she called Chloe here help her think this through. Chloe asked what Sally would do if Adam told her to quit the job to show how much she loved him. Sally noted that Adam said the exact opposite. Chloe said that Adam knew Sally never fall for that. “And now just look what he has you doing with just a touch of reverse psychology?,” Chloe said. Chloe asserted that Adam basically had Sally begging him to accept this sacrifice in honor of her love for him. Sally was adamant that she’d never beg Adam for anything. Chloe stared at Sally knowingly. Sally realized that she actually had been begging Adam. She admitted he’d even called her pathetic. Chloe said Sally was feeding Adam’s massive ego and making him think he was more important to her than anything else, meanwhile he was putting her down. Chloe asked if that was what Sally wanted the rest of her life to look like. Sally said of course not. Chloe said Adam was going to constantly put his love with Sally to the test, because he didn’t know how else to be in a relationship.

    Sally didn’t want to think Adam had been playing mind games with her all along. She honestly thought he wanted her to have this opportunity to prove herself. Chloe said if Adam was truly noble and thought Sally would be better off in the job than in the relationship, he’d be right. Sally thought love was more important than a job. Chloe said a healthy stable relationship with the right man was better than a job, but that didn’t describe Sally and Adam’s relationship. Sally didn’t want to believe Adam stopped loving her or that he never did. Chloe thought Sally had to stop fixating on what Adam felt and meant before she lost herself. Chloe said Chelsea fell into the same trap, and that was why she wasn’t able to continue the fashion line – she’d lost years of her life because of her obsession with Adam. Sally said even if Chloe was right, and this relationship wasn’t healthy or worth saving, she told Adam she didn’t want to get the job this way, and that was the truth. Chloe said Adam didn’t get Sally the job – the most he did was get out of her way. She said Nick and Victoria asked Sally to stay because they loved her ideas. Sally said Adam took a chance on her and gave her the job in the first place. Chloe said Sally proved she deserved to be the boss with her brilliance and hard work. Chloe said when she and Sally first started working together, she was determined to make people sit up and take notice – so where was that Sally Spectra? Sally said Chloe was right. “You knew what I was going to say. That’s why you asked me to come here. You don’t want to lose this job and you are not a quitter,” Chloe said.

    Sally thanked Chloe for reminding her she wasn’t a quitter. Sally was going to show the world what she was capable of. She wasn’t sure what Adam expected out of this whole thing, but it didn’t matter because she was going to make the most of the opportunity she was given. “Correction – that you’ve earned,” Chloe said. Sally appreciated having a friend and ally like Chloe. Sally gave Chloe permission to shake sense into her. Chloe said she wouldn’t abuse the privilege. Chloe said she was honored to work with Sally again, and they were invincible and unstoppable. Sally said tomorrow they were moving forward full throttle.

    Nick went to the office, and Victor said Chance was on his way. Nick asked about Victoria. She was resting, according to Victor. Nick noticed Victor and Michael seemed remarkably calm, given what happened. Nick asked if Michael and Victor knew more than they were letting on. Michael and Victor didn’t mention that they already knew the car in the ravine was Ashland’s and that he was found inside. Michael said Chance organized a thorough search, and Ashland would surely be found soon. Victor said he had his men watching all over town, and the noose around Ashland’s neck was tightening. Victor said when Ashland was caught, Victoria could press charges. Michael thought there was enough to keep Ashland in jail while he awaited trial. Nick assumed they were so calm because they both assumed the end of the Ashland Locke nightmare was coming.

    Chance came in. nick recalled that the last time they talked, Chance said they’d found a car in the ravine. He asked if it was Ashland’s car. The answer was yes. Nick asked if Ashland was in the car. Again, yes – Ashland was behind the wheel, and he was dead. Nick hoped Ashland would’ve survived the crash. He asked if the crash caused Ashland’s death. Chance hesitated, and Michael said those were questions for the medical examiner. Chance agreed that they wouldn’t know until the autopsy. Chance correctly assumed Victor wanted to be the one to break the news to Victoria. Chance wanted to know why Victor ended up at Victoria’s house tonight. Victor said his security team told him something was amiss. Chance asked why this was the first he was hearing that there was a security team involved. Victor said that Chance never asked before. He explained that he sent his security team to watch Victoria after he found out Ashland was in town. Chance asked what security saw. According to Victor, the team got suspicious when they saw Nick knock on the door without getting a response. Nick explained that he went around to the back door when Victoria didn’t answer. Chance asked if the team followed Nick to the back of the house.

    Victoria said the team kept watching the house, then not long after, they saw Nick and Victoria leave the house in an agitated state. That alarmed the security team, and they called Victor. Chance asked if Nick was aware of security’s presence, and he said no. Chance didn’t see them when he got there either. Victor said he told his team to take the night off because he knew Nick was with Victoria. Chance asked if Victor was saying his guys didn’t approach the house or see Ashland come or go. Michael thought Victor answered those questions. Chance said he didn’t. Victor felt like he was being interrogated. Chance said he was just trying to build a timeline. Victor said Michael could give Chance the contact info for the security team. Chance decided to leave, and Victor said to say hi to Abby and Dominic.

    Nick suspected Victor and Michael were keeping something from him. Victor understood Nick was upset and probably felt responsible for Ashland’s death, but he shouldn’t. Victor said Nick saved Victoria’s life. Michael echoed Victor’s sentiments and added that Nick had no intention of killing Ashland. Victor said it wasn’t even clear whether Nick’s punch caused Ashland’s death. Michael stated that Ashland had no business driving tonight, and Nick had nothing to do with him getting behind the wheel. Victor said maybe Ashland chose to drive into the ravine to kill himself. Michael noted that Rey had a heart attack and lost control of the car – something like that could’ve happened to Ashland. While Nick appreciated the attempts to let him off the hook, but he highly doubted any of those scenarios happened. Victor didn’t care how Ashland died – the important thing was that he was out of their lives and no longer a threat to Victoria. Victor asked Nick to come stay at the ranch. Nick needed to go for a drive to clear his head.

    Once they were alone, Victor thanked Michael for how he handled things. Michael was sure Chance would be back with more questions. Victor said that they should assume Ashland got up after the punch, realized he had nothing to live for anymore, and then he drove into the ravine and met his end. Michael said that was a plausible theory that was impossible to disprove. “Exactly,” Victor replied.

    Chance was back at Crimson Lights staring at Ashland’s ring, with a pensive expression.

    Phyllis and Summer met at Society. Summer hoped Phyllis didn’t ask her to come here without Kyle so she could bash Diane without offending him. Phyllis said she and Summer had a lifetime together without talking about Diane, and she wanted to go back to that. Summer was relieved and eager to do that. Summer admitted it had been a struggle getting caught between Phyllis and Kyle and Phyllis and Jack, all while trying to manage an international move and getting Harrison settled in and launching a company. Phyllis understood it was hectic. Phyllis said they should have fun and she’d foot the bill.

    Phyllis knew what it was like to juggle the home and business. The Grand Phoenix was a well oiled machine now, so she had time to help Summer. Phyllis was sure that Chelsea pulling out of Marchetti was hard. Summer understood that Chelsea had to prioritize her mental health. Phyllis asked about the person Chelsea recommended, and Summer said they were in talks. Phyllis asked if the marketing position Summer offered her was still available. Summer said she filled the position months ago.

    Summer was surprised Phyllis was angling for a job at Marchetti. She thought Phyllis was happy running the hotel. Phyllis said she loved the hotel, but it wasn’t like it was in the beginning. She missed the challenge of setting up a new business. Summer asked how much this had to do with Diane working at Marchetti. Phyllis insisted that she was doing everything she could to stay away from Diane. Phyllis said she didn’t ask about the job before because of Diane, but then she decided that she shouldn’t let Diane influence her life. Summer found this hard to believe. Phyllis thought it was a mistake for Kyle to hire Diane, but he’d have to suffer the consequences. Summer assumed Phyllis was hoping hiring Diane turned would blow up in their faces so Phyllis would be proven right. Phyllis pointed out that Summer was the one who kept bringing up Diane. Phyllis said this wasn’t about Diane. Phyllis wanted to work with Summer on something creative. Phyllis said she and Summer had so much fun when they worked together before, and they could have that again.

    Summer admitted she’d been a bit jealous that Kyle was getting to work with his mother, while Summer missed the chance to work with hers. Phyllis said she missed it too. Summer didn’t think Kyle would be thrilled at the prospect of Phyllis and Diane getting in each other’s faces every day. Phyllis said that wasn’t going to happen. She said she wouldn’t let anything or anyone jeopardize her relationship with Summer. Summer wasn’t sure Phyllis could stop herself from feuding with Diane. Phyllis said she’d just stay clear of Diane. Phyllis didn’t want to talk about Diane. She wanted to talk about this job.

    Summer said Harrison kept asking why they didn’t speak Italy anymore. She thought his phrasing was so cute. Phyllis thought the maternal role suited Summer. Nick walked in and they waved him over. Phyllis asked if he was okay. He revealed that Ashland was dead. Nick was sorry. This was going to be so hard on Harrison. Summer thanked Nick for letting her know. She said she’d get back to Phyllis on her idea. Summer went home to talk to Kyle about how to deal with this. Phyllis sensed there was more to this story that Nick didn’t want to share in front of Summer. He said that the death was just sudden. Phyllis said the bright side was that Nick never had to deal with Ashland ever again.

    Transcript provided by Suzanne

    Nick: Thank you. Listen, I know I told you that I would be free to talk about work whenever you need me. But now is not a good time.

    Sally: Believe me, I am fine with not talking about newman media. I actually just came by here hoping to run into sharon because we had a good talk earlier about your brother actually, who happens to be the most confusing, infuriating, and exasperating human I have ever known.

    Nick: Didn’t you earlier say you were sorry you ever got involved with him in the first place? I mean, I guess I can understand why you want to commiserate with sharon. She certainly can relate.

    Sally: Yeah, but, I mean, sharon has been just as baffled by adam’s decisions lately as i have, but you could tell that we had a real connection.

    Nick: Listen, listen, listen, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be rude. But I’m sorry, I cannot talk about the drama between you and adam right now. It is the least of my concerns.

    Sally: Your bad mood seems to be more than just a simple, frustrating day at the office. What happened?

    Nick: [ Sighs ]

    Michael: That’s exactly what I wanted to hear. Alright. Done. Everyone on your security team has been briefed.

    Victor: Alright. The less is said, the better.

    Michael: I’ll make sure that’s perfectly clear.

    Victor: And by the way, I want to thank you, michael. I appreciate what you have done tonight. Nice to know that I can call on my old friend michael baldwin to help my family through a very difficult time. I’ll not soon forget this. I promise you.

    Phyllis: Hey, baby girl.

    Summer: Hey.

    Phyllis: There you are. Oh! Okay, I know you’ve probably had a long day. Thank you for squeezing in your mom. We can have some bonding time, finally.

    Summer: Mom is the reason why you wanted to see me without kyle so that you can bash diane without offending him? I… [ Sighs ]

    Phyllis: Okay. No, no, no. Not at all. Summer, I mean, we’ve had a lifetime together, never, never bringing up diane jenkins. Can we go back to that, please?

    Summer: [ Sighs ] Yes, okay, good. ‘Cause, honestly, it has been a struggle being caught in the middle between you and kyle, and you and jack, all while I’m trying to juggle this international move and getting harrison resettled and then relaunching a major company from its new headquarters. It’s just, like…

    Phyllis: Okay, alright, I get it, I get it, I get it. I’m sure it’s a very difficult time and very hectic.

    Summer: [ Sighs ]

    Phyllis: Let’s have fun. Alright? First round’s on me. The second round’s on me. Third round’s on me.

    [ Both laugh ]

    Nick: No offense, but I don’t want to talk about tonight, or anything else for that matter. Don’t take it personally.

    Sally: I won’T. I mean, it’s obvious that you’ve been through the wringer. Maybe you should just go home and get some sleep.

    Nick: Yeah, I’d really like to do that, but I can’t because I’m waiting around for a bunch of other shoes to drop.

    Sally: Well, that sounds ominous.

    Nick: I’m not trying to sound mysterious. In fact, I’m sure you’ll hear all about it when you show up to work in the morning.

    Sally: Yeah, um… about that.

    [ Sighs ] We won’t be seeing each other at work in the morning.

    Nick: Why?

    Sally: Look, I wasn’t going to say anything, because you didn’t want to talk about work. But I have made a decision. I’m going to call victoria in the morning and tell her that I changed my mind. I’m going to respectfully decline the ceo position.

    Nick: The hell you are.

    Michael: Shouldn’t be long before we hear from chance about what the gcpd found at the scene of the crash. But if you want to go back to the ranch and check on victoria, I can keep you updated.

    Victor: Ah, no. I just, um, know that nikki will take very good care of her. Okay? And I don’t want victoria to be upset by any bad news that chance might have.

    Michael: Well, then it’s better we meet him here.

    Victor: By the way, I realize it’s late. Why don’t you go home to lauren, okay? I can handle it.

    Michael: [ Chuckles ] Thank you for being so considerate of my work-life balance. But I am not about to let you talk with chance without having your attorney present. Look, he may be your son-in-law, but he’s a damn good cop. And, um, he’s going to have a lot of questions.

    Victor: Yeah.

    [ Cellphone rings ] Talking about the devil. Yes, chance? What news do you have?

    Nick: What happened? Why change your mind? I mean, earlier, you were so fired up about leading newman media. You pitched yourself as the perfect person for the job.

    Sally: I know, and i so appreciate you and victoria giving me a shot at it.

    Nick: Then why walk away now? Is this some kind of negotiating tactic?

    Sally: No, it is nothing like that. I just — I learned something earlier. Adam was in here tonight, and I heard him talking with sharon. I overheard him telling her what I had suspected all along. He admitted that the only reason he broke up with me was because he felt like it was best for me. He didn’t admit it to my face, but it’s a real motive behind him breaking things off.

    Nick: Do you think we don’t know that already? And who cares? It shouldn’t change anything.

    Sally: Yeah, but it does, because I’m not okay with him making that sacrifice.

    Nick: Well, adam doesn’t care what you think, obviously. He made this decision without consulting you, and he’s lying to you, and he’s continuing to lie to you.

    Sally: It was a terrible, stupid mistake on adam’s part, but I know he believes he’s doing the right thing.

    Nick: You’re just making excuses for him, just like sharon did and chelsea and just like victoria did for ashland.

    Sally: That is not what I’m doing.

    Nick: Sally, what is wrong with you? You’ve got this incredible opportunity. It is right in front of your face. You just have to grab it. And you’re willing to throw it all away for this guy who stomped on your heart with both feet. Is this all the self-respect you have?

    Sally: Why are you being so harsh? I bet this has more to do with what your sister just went through than it does with me. So please don’t put all your baggage on me. You don’t know me that well.

    Nick: You’re right, you’re right, and I’m sorry, and you can do whatever you want. But please don’t confuse adam treating like dirt as this sign of this incredible love that you have. Don’t do that. A lot of women have made that mistake with him.

    [ Cellphone pings ]

    [ Sighs ] I got to go, sally. I really hope you reconsider this terrible and rash decision that you’re making.

    Sally: [ Sighs ]

    Phyllis: Oh, trust me, I know what it’s like to juggle home life and business. Trust me.

    Summer: [ Chuckles ]

    Phyllis: I know. [ Chuckles ] I’m not doing much of that anymore, but, you know, the grand phoenix is now a well-oiled machine. It leaves me a little bit of time for other things.

    Summer: I’m sure there’s still plenty to keep you busy.

    Phyllis: You know, not really. So, I mean, if you need a little bit of help, I’m here.

    Summer: Oh, I mean, I wasn’t complaining. I know that kyle and i are going to figure things out.

    Phyllis: Oh, for sure, for sure. I believe in you. Listen, I’m sure it was difficult. Chelsea, you know, pulling out of her commitment as lead designer.

    Summer: Oh, yeah. I mean, it was, but I really can’t fault her for making that decision. I mean, she’s got to prioritize her mental health. We all know how fragile that can be. I’m just glad that she did it now, rather than later, after we already invested tons of time and energy and money into promoting her new line.

    Phyllis: Mm-hmm. Yeah. What about the person she recommended? How’s that going?

    Summer: We’re in talks, so, hopefully, that’ll work out.

    Phyllis: Yeah. Yeah. Well, I can’t help you with that.

    [ Both chuckle ] Yeah. How about marketing? I mean, the position that you offered me — is that still available?

    Summer: Mom, that was months ago. Of course I filled the position.

    Phyllis: Of course, of course, but I just figured maybe because you guys are relocating to genoa city, maybe the person in that position didn’t want to relocate.

    Summer: I’m a bit confused as to why this is coming up now. Are you seriously asking if you can come to work at marchetti? Cleaning spell, cleaning spell…

    Phyllis: Well, I don’t know why you’re so surprised that I’m bringing up this job at marchetti. I mean, you don’t know how close I was to, you know, moving to italy and kissing everything here in genoa city goodbye.

    Summer: Still, you had good reasons for turning it down.

    Phyllis: Yeah, I had good reasons. I just wasn’t ready to leave. But, I mean, now that you’re moving the headquarters to genoa city, that’s amazing. If I would have taken it, it would have been the best of both worlds.

    Summer: I thought you really were happy running the hotel.

    Phyllis: Don’t get me wrong. I really love it there. But, you know, it’s not like it was in the beginning. You know, when you’re trying to create a business and get everything running, it’s very, very challenging and rewarding. I mean, you know.

    Summer: [ Sighs ] Mom, I need you to be really honest with me right now. How much of this sudden interest in working in marchetti has to do with the fact that kyle just hired diane?

    Chloe: Hey, sally.

    Sally: Hi. Thank you for coming by so late and on such short notice.

    Chloe: Yeah. Not a problem. The kids are asleep and, well, kevin has been so supportive. He knows how excited I am about our new venture.

    Sally: Yeah, um, about that.

    Chloe: Oh, no. Bad news? Did nick and victoria rescind their job offer?

    Sally: No, no, it’s nothing like that. The job is mine if I still want it.

    Chloe: [ Chuckles ] “Still want it”? Is there even a question?

    Sally: I just have to admit, I’m a little torn over this whole thing.

    Chloe: Okay, it isn’t a total shock. When we spoke earlier, you weren’t as enthusiastic as I expected you’d be. But what’s up? Are you offended that the newmans want you to go through a probationary period, or are you having a last-minute crisis of confidence?

    Sally: No, I know that I can do this job. I told nick and victoria my ideas, and they loved it. It’s why they were willing to give me this chance.

    Chloe: Okay. So, then what’s the problem?

    Chloe: Oh.

    [ Scoffs ] This is about adam… isn’t it?

    Nick: Dad, michael, what’s the latest?

    Victor: Son, I just got a call from chance. He’s going to come over and fill us in.

    Nick: Did he say anything on the phone about what they’ve learned?

    Victor: Unh-unh.

    Nick: How about vick? How’s she doing?

    Victor: Uh, she is resting at the ranch. You know, your mother is taking good care of her. I don’t want her to be upset by any news that chance may have.

    Nick: Yeah, she’s, uh, been through enough already.

    Victor: Boy, has she ever. My heart goes out to your sister. My goodness. I’ll fill her in, in the morning.

    Nick: You know, you two seem remarkably calm, considering what has happened. You sure you don’t know more?

    Michael: I see no reason for alarm at this point. If ashland hasn’t been located yet, I have no doubt he will be found soon. Chance has organized a thorough search.

    Victor: I have my men watching all over town. Suffice it to say, the noose around that bastard’s neck is tightening. And when he is caught, victoria can press charges.

    Michael: In my opinion, there’s more than enough to charge ashland and keep him in jail while he awaits trial. And you witnessed the struggle he had with victoria. And we can always mention the fact that he defied kyle’s restraining order. I mean, the man is clearly a threat to the safety of the community.

    Victor: There certainly is that.

    Nick: So, that’s why you two seem so nonchalant about this? You both think the end of the actual locke nightmare is coming?

    Victor: Well, I’m certain this will all turn out the way it should.

    [ Telephone rings ] Send him in.

    [ Receiver clicks ]

    [ Doorknob rattles ]

    Chance: So, as promised, I’m here with an update.

    Victor: Hello, chance.

    Michael: Thank you for coming over. I know it’s been a long, busy night for you.

    Nick: Last time we talked, you said the police found a car at the bottom of the ravine. Was it ashland?

    Chance: Yes, it was.

    Nick: Was he in it?

    Chance: Yes. He was behind the wheel.

    Nick: Alive?

    Chance: No. Ashland locke is dead.

    Who’s on it with jardiance?

    Chloe: So, was I right about adam earlier? Is he angry with you for staying on at newman when he decided to quit? Is that why he broke up with you?

    Sally: [ Sighs ] You have it backwards, chloe. Adam broke up with me so that I can stay here. He knew that victoria would never agree to keep me on as long as we were still together, that she could never trust me to somehow not be conspiring with him. So he came up with some bogus story about not wanting to be with me because victor wouldn’t approve.

    Chloe: Oh, my god. That is just so hurtful.

    Sally: I knew that that’s not how he really felt, which is exactly what you saw us arguing about earlier. And then tonight, I confirmed it. I overheard him admitting to sharon that he only cut me loose so that our relationship wouldn’t get in the way of my job here at newman media.

    Chloe: And let me guess, you confronted him right away.

    Sally: Of course. I told him that this was a huge mistake and that he would regret it for the rest of his life, once I had moved on with someone else.

    Chloe: Good for you.

    Sally: But then I also

    [Sighs] Told him that I didn’t want to get the job this way and that I would

    [Inhaling deeply] Be turning in my resignation first thing in the morning.

    Chloe: Okay. I — I’m not going to freak out right away, because I’m sure you just said that in the heat of the moment, and by now you’ve calmed down and realize that quitting would just be crazy. Right?

    Phyllis: Summer, why do you think that everything has to do with diane jenkins now?

    Summer: Because I know you, mom. It would be just like you to decide that you needed to be on the marchetti premises so that you could keep a close eye on her.

    Phyllis: No, no, that’s not what I’m doing. Trust me when I say I am doing everything to keep out of that woman’s path. Absolutely everything. And in fact, that’s the reason I never brought up the marchetti position in the first place, because of her. Seriously. But then I said, “you know what, phyllis? You know what? You cannot let that woman influence your life.”

    Summer: Somehow I find that hard to believe.

    Phyllis: Well, it’s true. Believe it. I mean, honestly, do I think it’s a mistake that kyle hired her? Yeah. Do I think it’s going to be a disaster? Yes. But it’s a decision that kyle made, and he’s going to have to suffer the consequences.

    Summer: Okay, so, you’re basically telling me that you’re hoping that hiring diane turns into a catastrophe that’s going to blow up in all of our faces so that you’re proven right.

    Phyllis: Summer, why do you keep on talking about her? You’re the one doing it, not me. Let’s not even talk about diane jenkins. It’s not about her. It’s about us working together, doing something creative together. I mean, we had so much fun when we worked together before. Remember?

    Summer: Of course I do.

    Phyllis: Yes, so that’s what I’m talking about. We need to do that again. Imagine flying all over the world, going to fashion shows, meeting top designers. How much fun, just working together, mother and daughter. I mean, that’s the reason why you wanted to hire me in the first place.

    Nick: So, ashland’s dead? I was hoping he would survive the crash.

    Chance: Well, sorry, nick.

    Nick: Did your investigators say anything about it? Did he die from injuries sustained during the crash?

    Michael: Those are questions for the medical examiner.

    Chance: Yeah, we’ll have to wait for the autopsy report to know that for sure.

    Nick: Alright, can you just please keep us posted on results?

    Chance: I’ll share what seems necessary.

    Victor: Anyway, chance, thank you for delivering this extraordinary news. Rather tragic, isn’t it?

    Chance: Would you like to break the news to victoria?

    Victor: Yeah, I’ll take care of that.

    Chance: Okay. Victor, you never mentioned how you ended up at victoria’s place. Did she tell you what happened? Or nick?

    Victor: Neither. My security team told me that something was amiss.

    Chance: Your security team? Why is this the first time that I’m hearing about this?

    Victor: Because that’s the first time you asked me that question, okay? I have no time to tell you. I employed my security team, asked them to watch victoria’s house, once I found out that ashland locke was in town. I wanted her to be safe. They watched her house for a discreet distance.

    Chance: Okay, and what did they see?

    Victor: They saw nick just go to the front door, knock on it. And then when there was no response, they became suspicious because they knew that victoria was in the house.

    Nick: Yeah, I, uh — I just assumed she was asleep, but I didn’t want to leave, because it didn’t feel right. So I went around the side of the house, to the back. Your guys must have seen me do that.

    Victor: Yeah.

    Chance: Did your guys follow him back there, victor? We hit the bike trails every weekend

    “The young and the restless”

    will continue.

    Summer: I have to admit, I have been a little bit jealous that kyle is getting to work with his mother when I missed my opportunity to work with mine.

    Phyllis: That’s what I’m talking about. I miss it, too.

    Summer: [ Chuckles ]

    Phyllis: Oh, let’s make this happen.

    Summer: Okay, let’s not get too ahead of ourselves. I still have to run all of this by kyle, and I have a feeling he’s not going to be too thrilled at the prospect of you and diane getting in each other’s faces every day.

    Phyllis: Mnh-mnh, that’s not an issue. I’m not going to get in her face, honestly.

    Summer: [ Sighs ]

    Phyllis: I mean, [Sighs] Yeah, I had a hard time letting go of all the absolutely horrible, horrible things she did to me. And I did throw my relationship with jack in her face, and, you know, that blew up. But, hey, listen, I’m not going to let anything or anyone jeopardize my relationship with you.

    Summer: I believe what you’re saying. I just — I’m not sure that you can stop yourself from feuding with diane.

    Phyllis: It’s not an issue, summer. I mean, I-I won’t even see her there, really, or if I do, I’ll just stay clear. Listen, why are we talking about diane again? Why are we doing that?

    [ Chuckles ] Let’s talk about this job. Okay, so — so, what do you think? Something in marketing?

    Summer: Um, no, I’m thinking something much more glamorous for you.

    Phyllis: Yeah?

    Summer: Maybe, like, company chauffeur. I think you would look really good in one of those hats.

    Phyllis: Oh, okay, yeah.

    Summer: [ Laughing ]

    Phyllis: Alright.

    [ Laughs ]

    Victor: Well, to answer your question, my security detail stayed on, watching the house. And then, not too long after, they saw nicholas and victoria leave the house in a rather agitated state. That’s when they became alarmed and called me.

    Chance: Were you aware of their presence?

    Nick: I didn’t notice them. But, honestly, at that point, I was pretty out of it.

    Chance: I didn’t see them when I got there, either.

    Victor: The reason you didn’t is because I had told the security detail to take the night off, because I knew that nicholas was with victoria and they’d returned to the house.

    Chance: Okay, so, what you’re telling me is, your guys — they didn’t approach the house at all, they didn’t look into any of the windows and they didn’t see ashland come or go? Nothing like that?

    Michael: I think victor’s answered those questions.

    Chance: No, he hasn’T. Not specifically.

    Victor: Chance, my man, this is beginning to feel like an interrogation.

    Chance: It’s nothing like that, victor. Just trying to gather as much information as I can so I can flesh out my timeline.

    Victor: Good. I told you all I know. Michael can give you the respective phone numbers of my security detail, and you can ask them questions. Okay?

    Chance: Great.

    Victor: Good.

    Chance: Send me the info.

    Michael: Of course.

    Chance: Think I’ve taken up enough of your time.

    Victor: Alright. By the way, chance, say hello to abby and dominic, alright?

    Chance: I will.

    Victor: Okay.

    [ Door closes ]

    Nick: If you two are keeping something from me, I want to know what it is.

    Ashley: [ Sighs ] I have to admit, I am feeling a little shaky about this whole resignation thing. I’ve just been dismissing being ceo as just a job, but the truth of the matter is, this is an amazing once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

    Chloe: Yeah, I’m glad you realize that.

    Sally: And I just ran into nick at crimson lights, and I mentioned to him that I was planning to quit. And he flat-out told me that I would just be one more in a long line of women who would make bad decisions just to impress adam, which is not at all what I thought I was doing. But I — I’m just so confused.

    Chloe: Well, I mean, nick didn’t say anything all that different than the advice I gave you earlier.

    Sally: I know. Which is exactly why I called you, because I need someone to help me think this through and figure out the right thing to do.

    Chloe: Okay. Uh, let’s say that adam said, “I want you to quit this job to prove to me how much you love me.” How would you have reacted to that?

    Sally: I mean, that’s not really a fair hypothetical, because he literally said the exact opposite.

    Chloe: You bet he did. Because he knew how blatantly selfish and manipulative that would have been and that you never would have fallen for it. And now look what he has you doing with just — ah, with just a touch of reverse psychology.

    Sally: You really think that’s what adam’s game is?

    [ Chuckles ] Yes. He basically has you begging to accept this sacrifice in honor of your love for him.

    Sally: I am not begging him for anything. I would never do that. Damn it. That is exactly what I’ve been doing. He even called me pathetic.

    Chloe: You see what’s happening here? You are feeding adam’s massive ego. You are making him believe that he’s more important to you than anything else. Meanwhile, he’s constantly putting you down. Is that what you want the rest of your life to look like?

    Sally: Of course not.

    Chloe: Good. Good. Because I’m here to tell you that with adam, it’s never going to be just one and done. That’s not how this works. If you think that you’re going to convince him that you’re going to be together forever and everything’s just going to be fine, he is constantly going to be putting your love to the test. He doesn’t know any other way to be in a relationship. So, tell me, are you going to throw away the biggest opportunity of your life for that? Does that sound more fun to you than being ceo of newman media?

    Victor: Son, I understand that you’re upset. Okay? You probably feel responsible for ashland locke’s death. You shouldn’t feel responsible. You saved your sister’s life. Where would she be without you having interfered?

    Michael: Listen to your father. You may have saved your sister’s life. You had no intention of killing ashland. You didn’t want the man dead.

    Victor: It’s not even clear at this point whether your knockout punch is the cause of his death.

    Michael: Ashland shouldn’t have been driving at all tonight. And you had nothing to do with him getting behind the wheel of that car.

    Victor: Maybe the whole thing wasn’t an accident at all. Maybe he woke up, walked out of the house, got into his car, was probably parked behind victoria’s house, and drove himself to the damn ravine, knowing full well he would kill himself.

    Michael: Think about what happened to rey. I mean, he had a heart attack that actually caused him to lose control of the car. Something — something like that could have happened to him tonight.

    Nick: Okay, just…

    [ Sighs ] Look, I appreciate how badly you two want to let me off the hook, but I highly doubt any of those scenarios actually happened.

    Victor: Son, who cares how the man died? Most important thing is, out of our lives. He’s no longer there to endanger the life of your sister! Think about that.

    Michael: Listen to your father. He’s right.

    Victor: Why don’t you come to the ranch? Relax a little. You need to get away from all this.

    I appreciate the offer. Um… I just got to go for a drive, you know, clear my head.

    [ Door closes ]

    Sally: I just don’t want to believe that adam has been playing mind games with me all along. I honestly think that he wants me to have this opportunity to prove myself.

    Chloe: Okay, let’s go with that, then. Let’s say that adam is some truly noble creature who thinks you’re better off to be in this job than in this relationship. He would be totally right.

    Sally: I mean, come on, chloe. Isn’t love more important than a job — even a great one?

    Chloe: Yes, it totally is. But only if it’s in a real, healthy, stable relationship with the right man. And that’s not the case. I know you don’t want to hear that, but you were so desperately trying to convince yourself that adam’s love is real, that it’s just hidden deep below the surface.

    Sally: I just don’t want to believe that he suddenly stopped loving me…

    Chloe: [ Sighs ]

    Sally: …Or that he never did.

    Chloe: It’s time to stop fixating on what adam is really feeling or what he really meant when he said x, y, and Z.

    Sally: [ Sighs ]

    Chloe: Because when you do that, you completely lose yourself and you forget what matters to you.

    Sally: It’s not like that, chloe.

    Chloe: Hey, I know what I’m talking about. Chelsea fell into this same trap. That’s why she wasn’t able to move forward in the fashion line. She has lost years of her life to her obsession with adam.

    Sally: Okay. [ Sighs ] Even if you are right, and this isn’t healthy or worth saving, I told him that I don’t want to get the job this way, and that’s the truth.

    Chloe: He didn’t get you the job. The most you can say is that he got out of your way. Nick and victoria — they asked you to stay in this position after they heard what you had to say. And they loved your ideas.

    Sally: Yes, but adam took a chance on me by giving me this job in the first place.

    Chloe: And you proved that you deserve to be the boss. With your brilliance and hard work. Do I have to remind you of all the goals you had when we first started working together? You were determined to make people sit up and take notice of you, prove what you could accomplish. So, [Scoffs] Where is that sally spectra?

    Sally: You’re right.

    Chloe: You bet I am. And what’s more is that you knew what I was going to say. That’s why you asked me to come here. You don’t want to lose this job. And you are not a quitter.

    Summer: So, harrison keeps on asking why we don’t speak italy anymore.

    Phyllis: “Speak italy”? That’s so cute. Oh, gosh, poor kid, he must be confused.

    Summer: It was crazy how quickly he picked everything up over there. He was, like, practically fluent by the time we left.

    Phyllis: I love seeing you like this, taking on this maternal role. It suits you.

    Summer: [ Chuckles ]

    Nick: [ Sighs ]

    Summer: Hey, dad, come join us.

    Nick: Hey.

    Phyllis: Um, are you okay? You seem upset.

    Nick: Uh, I don’t want to ruin your evening, but something happened. Uh… you’re going to hear about it sooner rather than later. Ashland’s dead. Michael: My tip is, the worst lies

    Sally: You’re right. I am not a quitter. Thank you for helping me remember that.

    Chloe: So, you’re not going to resign in the morning?

    Sally: I am not going anywhere. And you don’t have to worry about me backsliding, because, as you said, if anything, I am persistent.

    Chloe: There she is. That’s the sally spectra I know.

    Sally: And with your help, I am going to show the newmans and the rest of the world what I am capable of. Who knows what adam wanted or expected out of this whole entire thing. But in the end, it doesn’t matter, because I am going to make the most out of this opportunity that I have been given.

    Chloe: Correction — that you’ve earned.

    Sally: Yes, that I’ve earned. Thank you, chloe. It really means a lot, having a friend and ally like you. And you have my permission to shake sense into me if ever I forget who we are or how we deserve to be treated.

    Chloe: Well, don’t worry, I won’t abuse the privilege. But I’m just so excited. And I am honored to be working with you again. And you said it — invincible. Unstoppable. It is on.

    [ Chuckles ]

    Sally: Go home, get some sleep, because starting tomorrow, we are moving forward full-throttle.

    Victor: I want to thank you for handling everything so damn well. You’re a hell of a lawyer, okay? And a good friend.

    Michael: Well, it’s not over yet. You can bet chance will be coming back with more questions.

    Victor: I think we have good explanations. Let’s assume that ashland locke woke up after being knocked down by my son, found himself all alone in the house, exited through the back door, where no one could see him, got into a car that he had parked behind victoria’s house, and then realizing he had nothing left in life to live for, he drove through the damn ravine, and that’s where he met his end.

    Michael: It’s very straightforward.

    Victor: Yeah.

    Michael: Completely plausible.

    Victor: Right.

    Michael: And impossible to prove otherwise.

    Victor: Exactly.

    Nick: Chance just broke the news. Ashland was in a car accident. He didn’t survive. Summer, I am…

    Summer: [ Sighs ]

    Nick: …So sorry. This is going to be very hard on harrison.

    Summer: I — I got to get home to kyle. Got to figure out how we’re going to deal with this. Thank you for letting me know. Mom, I’ll get back to you about your idea.

    Nick: What idea?

    Phyllis: Oh, it’s nothing. Um, you seem really broken up about this. I mean… I get the feeling there’s more to the story, and maybe you didn’t want to say it in front of summer.

    Nick: Aw, it’s just, you know, sudden,

    Phyllis: Uh-huh. Look on the bright side.

    Nick: Phyllis, don’t say that.

    Phyllis: Let’s be honest. There’s a bright side. You never have to deal with that guy ever, ever again. It’s finally over.

    Nick: [ Sighs ] Yeah. I think it is over.

    Chance: [ Sighs ] [ Sighs ]

    Diane: Oh, gosh! That wind came out of nowhere.

    Jack: Yeah, that’s what we used to call a wicked wind when I was a kid.

    Diane: I’ve never heard that phrase before.

    Jack: No?

    Diane: No.

    Jack: Well, it’s an old wives’ tale about summer winds that come in and manage to make things hot rather than cool. It’s a bad omen.

    Diane: Oh.

    Jack: So, in July, when a wind like this kicks up, well, you know trouble’s right around the corner. And here you are


    Phyllis: I’ll tell you why. I had a conversation with Summer. You know what Summer said? She went on and on about Diane and how wonderful she is because I guess she saved Harrison from Ashland. And she was going on like Diane deserved a medal or a parade or something.

    Nikki: That’s ridiculous. I was there. She sent Michael a text. That’s the extent of her involvement.

    Phyllis: Are you kidding me? And you know she probably did it so everybody would fawn all over her.

    Nikki: [Sighs] Ashland Locke. The gift that keeps on giving.

    Days Update Wednesday, July 27, 2022

    Days of Our Lives Update

    Days of Our Lives logo

    Update written by Joseph

    Sonny goes to the Kiriakis Mansion looking for Victor, but is shocked to instead find his half-brother, Alex Kiriakis (now played by Robert Scott Wilson), who says he is not Victor. Sonny questions what Alex is doing here. Alex asks if that’s any way to greet his big brother as he gives Sonny a big hug.

    Justin meets with Steve at the Brady Pub and asks what was important that he wanted to talk about. Steve shows Justin the article about Orpheus walking free.

    Eric offers to take Nicole to the hospital, but she says she can drive herself. Rafe points out that Nicole can barely even walk. Eric says he’s sure Rafe needs to catch the guy, so he will give Nicole a ride. Rafe thanks him and asks Nicole if she’s sure she’ll be alright. Nicole assures Rafe that she’ll be fine and tells Rafe to just get the man. Rafe kisses her and says he’ll call as soon as he knows anything. Rafe tells Eric to take good care of her. Eric then helps Nicole up and they walk away together.

    Ava tells the man to relax and he can have the ring but Jake says no. Jake tells the man that they just got engaged and to put the gun down. Jake warns that he doesn’t know who he’s messing with and walks towards him, so the man then shoots Jake. Jake then collapses in Ava’s arms.

    Alex tells Sonny to come swim with him but he declines. Alex talks about the setup of the Kiriakis Mansion. Sonny asks him what he’s doing here. Alex asks if he really needs a reason to come back and visit the family homestead. Sonny asks if it’s just a visit. Alex says it was originally but he might stay awhile. Alex calls it really strange that he felt right at home the second he stepped foot in Salem.

    Eric brings Nicole to the hospital. She thanks him for bringing her and being so kind, but says she’s here now so he can go. Eric refuses to leave until he knows she’s okay. Nicole insists that she’s fine. Eric says what happened in the park was some serious trauma. Nicole blows it off as not being her first. Eric tells her to stop pretending like she wasn’t scared when a man just attacked her with a gun. Eric declares that he’s not leaving and is staying right here whether she likes it or not.

    Rafe calls to send all available units to the town square. Jada joins him and asks about a robbery. Rafe informs her that the man tried to steal from the tip jar at the Brady Pub, then came to the park and pulled a gun on someone. Jada asks if he’s still out there. Rafe says he couldn’t have gotten far and is considered armed and dangerous.

    Ava checks on Jake and tries to encourage him to stay with her as he loses consciousness. Ava screams for help and tells Jake not to die on her.

    Alex gets the impression that Sonny is not happy to see him. Sonny says he’s just a little surprised since Alex seemed pretty locked in with the business in Phoenix and when he said he was taking the job at Titan, Alex said they could handle it. Alex assures that they are and that Joe and Victor have it handled. Sonny asks if he’s fine with them running it without him. Alex complains that they are always trying to tell him what to do anyway, so he figured he’d let them do their own thing. Alex says they have a different vision for the company and they were second guessing every decision he made. Alex points out that he’s still family. Sonny asks if that’s the only reason he left. Alex didn’t want business to come between he and his brothers, so he figured he’d step out and come to Salem to see some of the family. Alex asks where everyone is. Bonnie walks in looking for Justin. Alex introduces himself. Bonnie says it’s so nice to meet him and starts to introduce herself but Alex acknowledges her as the woman who killed his mother.

    Steve questions Governor Mitchell going along with the pardons. Justin responds that it’s because he’s corrupt and accepts bribes. Steve argues that he didn’t even try to hide it. Steve adds that he’s less interested in how Orpheus managed to get out than what Justin plans to do about it. Justin asks what he means. Steve reminds Justin that Orpheus is the man responsible for Adrienne’s death and asks if Justin plans to go after him.

    Eric has Nicole set up in a hospital room as Kayla comes in and asks what happened. Nicole responds that it’s nothing serious and she just twisted her ankle. Eric argues that it was hardly nothing as a guy attacked her in the park and pulled a gun on her. Kayla says that must have been terrifying. Nicole is thankful that Eric came when he did. Kayla questions if Eric fought off an attacker. Eric clarifies that he just talked to him and wishes he was able to stop him. Nicole hopes they catch him soon and knows Rafe won’t stop until he does.

    Jada and Rafe talk about catching this guy. Rafe says he got a pretty good description and reveals that his wife Nicole is the one who was attacked. Jada says she’s sorry and asks if she’s okay. Rafe says she will be but she’s pretty rattled since the guy threw her to the ground and she sprained her ankle. Jada asks where she is. Rafe says she’s at the hospital getting checked out. Jada asks if she’s by herself. Rafe responds that she is with her ex-husband which Jada questions. Rafe says it’s not like that and that he just happened to be at the scene. Rafe tells Jada to just focus on finding the guy. Rafe then gets a message about shots being fired.

    Ava tries to wake Jake up. The man asks if Jake is dead. Ava says he’s not and calls the man a son of a bitch. The man asks what she expected him to do and blames Jake for not just giving him the ring. Ava tells the man to just take the ring then. He says he doesn’t want it now. Ava questions what is wrong with him. Ava pulls out her phone to call for an ambulance but the man raises his gun and tells her to put the phone away as she’s not calling anybody. Ava questions if he’s going to shoot her now too. He responds that it’s nothing personal but he can’t have any witnesses.

    Bonnie claims not to know what Alex means. Alex says a few years ago, Bonnie was posing as Sonny’s mom Adrienne, and killed his mother, Anjelica Deveraux. Bonnie responds that she didn’t kill Anjelica. Sonny backs her up and says Anjelica died from a heart attack. Alex points out that it was in Bonnie’s hotel room and he heard that she left her for dead. Alex asks Bonnie for one good reason why he shouldn’t return the favor.

    Justin asks if Steve is worried he’s going to murder Orpheus. Steve says it’s not exactly a big leap and reminds Justin of what he did the last time he was in a room with Orpheus and pulled a gun on him while in police custody. Justin recalls Steve asking him to turn the gun over to him so he could do it himself, but he was just playing him to get the gun out of his hand. Steve argues that he was trying to save him from throwing his life away. Justin argues that he could’ve made that decision on his own. Steve says Justin was grieving and not in his right mind. Justin feels he was pretty clear. Steve says this is what he’s talking about since Justin sounds like he feels cheated, like he wishes he pulled the trigger. Steve needs to make sure that Justin is not planning on finishing the job. Orpheus then enters the Pub and says he’d like to know the answer to that himself.

    Kayla gets Nicole’s ankle wrapped and thinks it’s just a bad sprain, suggesting she stay off of it, rest it, and ice it for a few days. Eric asks if there’s anything else treatment wise. Kayla says she can just use pain meds unless it gets worse. Nicole says it feels pretty good, so she should be good to go. Nicole admits that she would feel better if Rafe gets that maniac off the streets.

    Rafe informs Jada that shots were fired outside the jewelry store in the town square, so they head that way.

    Ava tells the man that she doesn’t know what’s going on in his life but he doesn’t need to shoot her. Ava doesn’t give a damn about getting him arrested, she just needs to get an ambulance for her boyfriend. The man screams to put her phone down. Ava tells him to just go and she won’t tell anyone what she saw. The man argues that as soon as he turns around, she’ll call 911 and he’ll have the entire police force after him and he’ll be stuck. He declares that he can’t have that. He says he’s sorry but at least she gets to be with her boyfriend. Rafe and Jada arrive, ordering him to drop his gun. He doesn’t respond, so Jada shoots him.

    Orpheus sits at Steve and Justin’s table, saying he’s sorry to drop in unannounced but he figured they might take exception to his release. Justin wonders why he would think that. Steve asks what he wants. Orpheus says he’s not one to sit back and let things happen, so rather than wait for them to appear at his door, he thought he would come by and say hi, to get a sense of their intentions. Orpheus asks Justin if he intends to come after him. Justin asks if he thinks he’d tell him if he was. Orpheus says Justin has always been straightforward and has never hid his animosity towards him, though he claims it’s based on a misunderstanding which Justin questions. Justin argues that Orpheus killed his wife. Orpheus calls it an accident, saying he did not intend to hurt Adrienne and she was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Justin calls him a cold son of a bitch. Steve tells Orpheus that he’s not making things better. Orpheus says he’s just stating facts. Justin says the facts are that Orpheus ran Adrienne off the road and was too busy framing Maggie to call for help. Orpheus admits he was busy tying up loose ends but he’s not making any excuses. Orpheus tells Justin that he’s truly sorry for his loss, but he has to get on with his life, so he’s here to find out if he should expect retaliation from either of them. Justin responds that when he lost Adrienne, he didn’t think he had anything left except to kill him but Steve convinced him that he shouldn’t blow him away. Justin says he realized he still had a lot to live for like four sons, a granddaughter, and he was lucky enough to find love again. Justin adds that if he killed Orpheus, he would’ve tossed all of that away. Justin promises that Orpheus’ miserable life isn’t worth one second of his time with the people he loves. Orpheus asks if they are good then. Justin responds that they are far from good and he eagerly anticipates him rotting in Hell, but he’s not going after him because he’s already dead to him. Justin tells Steve it was good to see him again and then storms out of the Pub.

    Alex wraps a necktie around his hands as Sonny questions what the hell he’s doing. Bonnie argues that she didn’t mean to leave Anjelica in the hotel room. Alex points out that she did and Anjelica died. Bonnie cries that it was Anjelica’s idea for her to pose as Adrienne. Alex mocks the idea of her being innocent. Alex asks if she never thought she’d leave trail of bodies behind. Sonny tells Alex to put the tie down. Bonnie cries that she’s really sorry and knows she made a billion mistakes, but she was just desperate to stay out of prison. Sonny backs her up and says they’ve all forgiven her, including Justin. Bonnie says she’s really sorry about Anjelica. Alex then tosses the tie and laughs it off as a joke and points out the looks on their faces. Alex asks if he looks like the Necktie Killer or something. Sonny can’t believe it was a joke. Alex calls it a test. Bonnie is relieved as Alex says he just wanted to see how she would react. Alex adds that he’s not happy about what happened to his mother, but he knows she wasn’t a saint so he’d be willing to bet that she put herself in the position. Bonnie asks if he really doesn’t hate her. Alex says Justin says that she makes him happy, so he can’t be mad at her. Alex comments that what Bonnie did to Sonny’s mom was way worse and he was able to forgive him. Alex then hugs Bonnie.

    Rafe checks the man and removes the gun. Rafe confirms the man is dead from Jada’s shot and instructs her to call it in. Jada calls in two shootings in the park, one deceased and another victim in critical condition. Rafe checks on Jake and notes that his pulse is weak but it’s there. Ava worries that he’s lost so much blood and she can’t get it to stop. Rafe removes his jacket to cover the wound and assures Ava that the EMTs will be there shortly. Ava asks how this could happen to Jake as Rafe encourages that he’s going to be okay.

    Alex says he said what he had to say and got it out of his system but he doesn’t believe in holding on to bad feelings or negative energy. Alex talks about taking a swim when he greeted his brother. Bonnie acknowledges that Alex likes to keep in shape and points out his abs as she touches them. Justin then walks in and comments that he sees Bonnie met his son. Alex hugs Justin and says now it’s a party.

    Kayla tells Nicole that a nurse will be in with her crutches and then she’ll be on her way. Nicole and Eric thank her. Kayla suggests Nicole make an appointment with Marlena to talk this out because everything may seem okay now but PTSD can hit when you least expect it. Kayla gets paged about an incoming gunshot victim and exits the room. Nicole tells Eric that if he hadn’t shown up when he did, that gunshot victim might have been her.

    Rafe, Jada, and Ava are with EMTs as they bring Jake in to the hospital where Kayla greets them. Rafe calls it another robbery gone bad. Ava points out that he’s lost a lot of blood. Kayla asks if Ava is alright. She assures that she is and tells Kayla to just help Jake. Kayla agrees to do everything she can. Kayla can’t find an exit wound and calls to get him in to surgery. Ava says he has to make it. Kayla agrees to come talk to her as soon as she knows anything. Jada suggests they go sit in the waiting room while they need to do what they need to do. Rafe tells Ava that he knows they’ve been through a lot, but he’s here for her if she needs him.

    Justin asks Alex what prompted his visit to Salem. Sonny says apparently it’s not just a visit and he’s thinking about staying for a little while. Bonnie says that’s great and they are happy to have him. Justin asks what about the business in Phoenix. Alex says he needed a little break and thought it would be nice to see some family. Justin says Victor and Maggie will be thrilled to see him. Justin asks if they are talking a few weeks. Alex says he thought so originally but after seeing how relaxing this place is, he might just take the summer off. Sonny questions that. Alex says it beats hanging out in a blistering Arizona desert and he gets to spend a couple more months with his baby brother. Alex decides he and Sonny are going to go work out and Sonny’s going to show him around town. Sonny says that sounds awesome but Titan has him pretty busy right now. Alex suggests maybe he’ll come work with Sonny then.

    Steve tells Orpheus that he can save the innocent act for someone who doesn’t know him as they both know he got the pardon for a reason. Orpheus doesn’t know what he’s implying and claims he did his best to be a model prisoner and is now just trying to stay clean. Orpheus adds that he needs to find himself some gainful employment, so he asks if the Brady Pub is still hiring since his old pal Clyde is working here and Roman’s in the second chance business. Steve questions if he thinks this is only his second chance. Orpheus says sometimes it takes a few for it to stick. Orpheus knows he’s caused his share of pain, especially to Steve’s family, but says all that is behind him now. Orpheus says instead of the infamous villain Orpheus, he could just be Milo Harp, short order cook. Steve responds that if he really wants that kind of work, there are a lot of restaurants outside of Salem. Steve asks why he would stay here where everyone despises him. Orpheus says maybe he likes it here. Steve warns that he’ll never be able to live down his past, so if he’s really serious about cleaning up his act, he should go somewhere else and get a fresh start. Orpheus agrees that maybe it makes more sense and remarks that he’s always wanted to live out West. Orpheus brings up Seattle and suggests he could look in on Steve’s kids there.

    Nicole gets her crutches. Rafe comes in and asks how she’s doing. Nicole says it’s just a sprain so she’ll be fine. Rafe asks how she’s feeling. Nicole says Kayla wrapped it up nice so it’s good and now she’s working on her crutches. Nicole asks if he had any luck on finding the guy who attacked her. Rafe confirms they found him. Eric asks if he’s in custody. Rafe responds that he’s dead which shocks Nicole. Rafe explains that he and Jada came upon the man as he was in the midst of another robbery. Eric asks who else he tried to rob. Rafe says it was Ava. Nicole asks if she was alright. Rafe confirms that she is as the man was going to shoot her but Jada shot him first. Eric hates to hear about the loss of a human life. Eric adds that they should be grateful that nobody else is going to get hurt. Rafe responds that is unfortunately not the case since Jake was with Ava and before they got to the scene, the man had shot Jake. Eric realizes that’s who Kayla got paged to as the gunshot victim. Rafe confirms that Jake is being rushed into surgery as they speak and they don’t know anything else. Rafe tells Nicole that he’s just glad she is okay. Eric guesses Rafe can handle things from here. Rafe apologizes to Eric for how he reacted at the park. Eric tells him he doesn’t have to apologize. Rafe thanks Eric again for bringing Nicole to the hospital. Nicole thanks him as well. Eric reminds Nicole to take it easy and rest well as he then exits the room.

    Ava stares at her hands, covered in Jake’s blood. Jada asks if there’s anything she can get her. Ava thanks her but says no, insisting she’s fine since she’s not the one who just took a bullet. Jada knows they just met but brings up that her father used to work at the hospital and she hears they are the best, so Jake is in good hands. Jada asks if Ava wants to talk about it. Ava responds that she doesn’t know what Jada has heard about her, but this isn’t the first time she’s seen somebody shot in front of her. Ava says with the life she grew up in, it was pretty regular but seeing someone you care about bleeding out in front of you on the ground is something you never get used to. Jada comments that it sounds like Ava loves Jake very much. Ava admits she finally thought she could hold onto the person she loves but she will not be weak. Jada encourages that she’s not weak, just scared. Jada offers to get her a water and a granola bar but Ava says she’s not hungry. Jada points out that Jake might be in surgery for awhile, so she needs to keep her strength up. Ava then gives in, so Jada goes to get it for her. Ava looks down at her engagement ring.

    Steve stands up and questions if Orpheus is threatening his children. Orpheus responds that he didn’t threaten anyone. Steve warns him not to go anywhere near his children. Orpheus says that Steve is the one who suggested he leave town. Steve asks what kind of game he is playing. Orpheus says it’s no game, but him moving will create trouble then he’ll stay in Salem. Orpheus guesses he’ll be seeing him as he then exits the Pub.

    Sonny questions Alex wanting to work with him at Titan. Alex asks if he doesn’t want him to. Sonny says he doesn’t have a problem with it but he just said he wants to take the summer off. Sonny suggests he just stay in Phoenix with the twins but Alex says he’s sick and tired of knocking heads with them. Justin didn’t know they were having issues. Alex says they just have different ways of thinking, especially when it comes to business. Sonny asks what about them. Alex says they’ve always been good and he’s always gotten him. Sonny agrees that he does. Alex tells him they could be working together again and how awesome that will be as he hugs him.

    Jada goes to get water and a granola bar for Ava. Eric runs in to her and asks what’s wrong. Jada responds that she killed a man in the line of duty today. Eric knows it must be upsetting. Jada argues that it shouldn’t be since he was about to shoot Ava, so she knows she did the right thing and it’s her job. Eric understands it’s a heavy situation. Jada adds that it will never get easier. Eric encourages that she should be proud of herself for saving somebody’s life today.

    Nicole asks Rafe how badly Jake was hurt and if he’s going to make it. Rafe says he doesn’t know. Nicole asks how Ava is holding up. Rafe admits she’s not good. Nicole had no idea they were so close. Rafe admits he didn’t either, but seeing how broken up she was, he can tell it’s really serious between them. Nicole kisses Rafe.

    Kayla comes out so Ava asks how Jake is and if surgery is over. Kayla reveals there was no surgery. Ava questions what she’s talking about. Kayla informs Ava that Jake’s heart stopped on the way to the operating room, so they took him to the ER and did everything they could but they could not get his heart beating again. Ava can’t believe it as Kayla announces that she’s sorry, but Jake didn’t make it.

    Sonny: What’s going on?

    Steve: Justin. Thanks for meeting me.

    Justin: Of course. You said it was important.

    Steve: It is.

    Justin: So what do you wanna talk about?

    Steve: This.

    [Tense music]

    Eric: I mean that I’ll take you to the hospital.

    Nicole: Guys, I can drive myself.

    Rafe: No, actually. You can’T. You can barely even walk on it.

    Nicole: Let’s not make things worse.

    Eric: Listen, rafe, I’m sure you need to catch the guy who did this, all right? So I’ll give her a ride.

    Rafe: Thank you. Are you sure you’ll be all right?

    Nicole: Yeah. I’ll be fine. You just get this jerk, okay?

    Rafe: Okay. Okay. I’ll call you as soon as I know anything. All right. Take good care of her.

    Eric: I will.

    Rafe: Got it?

    Eric: I got this.

    Nicole: Oh, okay.

    [Grunts] Okay. Thanks.

    Eric: All right, let’s go.

    Rafe: All right, thanks.

    Ava: Okay. Okay, relax. You can have–

    Jake: No. No, he can’T.

    Ava: Jake, what are you doing?

    Jake: You’re not giving him your ring. Look, pal, we just got engaged. Put the gun down. You don’t know who you’re messing with, do you?


    [Tense music]

    Ava: Jake, jake. Jake. Jake, no! Jake. Jake.

    Jake: [Grunting in pain]

    [Dramatic music]

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

    [Soft orchestration]

    Sonny: Alex, come on. I’m serious. This suit’s really expensive. Alex! Alex!

    Alex: Oh, my god.

    Sonny: You’re soaking wet, man.

    Alex: I’m sorry, bro.

    Sonny: Seriously?

    Alex: I’m sorry. What can I say? It was so nice out, I had to get a swim in. I just ran in here to grab a drink. I’m headed back. And you’re coming to take a dip with me.

    Sonny: No. Thank you. Kind of feels like I already have.

    Alex: [Chuckles] Uncle vic, huh? Hell of a setup.

    Sonny: Yeah.

    Alex: It’s like a damn resort. He’s got the olympic-sized pool, the cabana, and not to mention this delicious arnold palmer that hendo whipped up for me.

    Sonny: Hendo? I’m sorry, do you mean henderson?

    Alex: Oh, it is the absolute best. Do you want me to make sure he makes you one?

    Sonny: No. I’m good, thank you.

    Alex: More for me.

    Sonny: So what are you doing here?

    Alex: Do I really need a reason to come back and visit the family homestead?

    Sonny: What, so you’re just here for a visit?

    Alex: Well, originally. But I mean, after getting back in this space, I might stay a while, you know? It’s really strange. The second I stepped foot in salem, I felt right at home.

    Eric: Take it easy. Keep leaning on me, all right?

    Nicole: Yeah.

    Eric: There you go. There you go.

    Nicole: Okay. Thank you for bringing me.

    Eric: Yeah.

    Nicole: And thank you for being so kind. But I’m here now, so I mean, you can go.

    Eric: I’m not leaving till I know you’re okay.

    Nicole: Eric, I’m fine. I’m sure once they take a look at my ankle, I will be as good as new.

    Eric: Yeah, well, it’s not your ankle I’m worried about. What happened in the park had to be some serious trauma.

    Nicole: Not my first.

    Eric: Stop it. Stop pretending like you weren’t scared. A man just attacked you and held a gun on you. All right? So I’m not leaving, all right? So whether you like it or not, I’m staying right here.

    Nicole: [Sighs]

    Rafe: Send all available units to the square. Let me know the second you find something.

    Jada: Hey, boss, you called in a robbery?

    Rafe: Yeah. Guy tried to take the tip jar from the brady pub.

    Jada: That’s pretty low.

    Rafe: Well, that’s not all. He came to the park and he pulled a gun on someone.

    Jada: And he’s still out there?

    Rafe: Yeah, and he can’t have gotten far. And consider him armed and dangerous.

    Ava: [Panting] Okay. No.

    Jake: [Grunts]

    Ava: No, no! No. No. No, no, no, no! Jake. Jake. Jake, can you hear me? Jake. Come on. It’s gonna be okay. You’re gonna be okay. Stay with me, jake. Help! Help! We need help over here! Don’t you die on me. Don’t you die.

    [Panting] Moderate to severe eczema still disrupts my skin.

    Alex: Why am I getting the impression that you’re not happy to see me?

    Sonny: No, it’s not– it’s not that I’m not happy to see you. I’m just, you know, a little surprised.

    Alex: Well, what is so surprising, sonny boy?

    Sonny: Well, you seemed pretty locked in with the business out in phoenix, and when I told you and the twins I was gonna be taking the job at titan, you said you guys could handle it.

    Alex: And we are. Trust me. Joe and vic have it all under control while I’m here.

    Sonny: And you’re fine with that? With them totally steering the ship without you?

    Alex: [Sighs] Joe and vic are always trying to tell me what to do anyway. So I figured, let ’em do their own thing.

    Sonny: I didn’t know you guys were butting heads.

    Alex: Just have a different vision for that company. Came to the point where they started second-guessing every decision that I made.

    Sonny: What were you guys fighting about?

    Alex: Different stuff, sonny. Who knows? They were in sync. I wasn’T. Maybe just chalk it up to working with twins. I don’t know. It doesn’t matter, okay? We’re still family, right? Yeah?

    Sonny: Yeah, you are. But is that the only reason you left?

    Alex: I didn’t want business to come in between us. That’s all. So I figured I’d step out. I wasn’t ready for another blistering summer in arizona. I wanted to head east, come to salem, and see some of the family. Where the hell is everybody, anyway?

    Bonnie: Sonny? Is your da– oh. [Laughs] Oh, um, who do we have here?

    Sonny: Bonnie, this is–

    Alex: Allow me. Alexander kiriakis.

    Bonnie: [Gasps] Alex. Oh, my gosh. It’s so nice to meet you. I’m b–

    Alex: The woman who killed my mother.

    [Tense music]

    Steve: Why would mitchell go along with something like this?

    Justin: Because he’s corrupt. He might as well just hang a sign that says “bribes accepted.”

    Steve: Didn’t even try to hide it. But I’m less interested in how orpheus managed to get out than in what you plan to do about it.

    Justin: What do you mean?

    Steve: You know what I mean. The man responsible for adrienne’s death is free. Are you planning to go after him?

    Kayla: Nicole.

    Nicole: Hey, kayla.

    Kayla: What happened?

    Nicole: It’s nothing serious. I just twisted my ankle.

    Eric: It was hardly nothing. A guy attacked her in the park.

    Kayla: A random attacker?

    Nicole: He wanted my purse.

    Eric: He pulled a gun on her.

    Kayla: That must have been terrifying.

    Nicole: Well, thankfully, eric came when he did.

    Kayla: Don’t tell me you fought off an attacker.

    Eric: No, I just talked to him. Just wish I was able to stop him.

    Nicole: Hopefully they’ll catch him soon. And if I know rafe, he won’t stop until he does.

    Jada: Should we start canvassing the park? See if anyone has run into this guy?

    Rafe: Yeah, I’m working on getting a photo right now. He was at the brady pub. Hopefully the security camera got a good angle on him.

    Jada: Do you know what he looks like?

    Rafe: Yeah, I got a pretty good description of him from my wife.

    Jada: Your wife?

    Rafe: Nicole is the one who was attacked.

    Jada: Oh, man, I’m sorry. Is she okay?

    Rafe: Yeah, she’s gonna be okay. I mean, she’s pretty rattled. The guy threw her to the ground, and she sprained her ankle.

    Jada: I’m sorry. Where is she?

    Rafe: She’s at the hospital right now, getting checked out.

    Jada: By herself?

    Rafe: No, she’s– she’s with her ex-husband.

    Jada: Ex-husband?

    Rafe: It’s not like that. He just happened to be at the scene. Would you just focus on finding the guy?

    Jada: Say no more.

    Rafe: Oh.

    Jada: What is it?

    Rafe: I just got a report of shots fired.

    Ava: Jake. Jake, come on. Come on, stay with me. Wake up. Wake up; you gotta stay with me. Come on. Come on, jake. Jake, answer me.

    Greg: Is he dead?

    Ava: No. No, he’s not dead. No thanks to you, you son of a bitch.

    Greg: What’d you expect me to do, huh? It’s his fault. He should have just given me the ring.

    Ava: Oh, you want this ring? Is that what you want? You shot him over a stupid piece of jewelry? Take it! Take it!

    Greg: I don’t want it now.

    Ava: What the hell is wrong with you? Huh?

    Greg: Hey, whoa, whoa. What do you think you’re doing?

    Ava: Calling for an ambulance.

    Greg: Put the phone down. You’re not calling anybody.

    Ava: What, you’re gonna shoot me now too, huh?

    Greg: Sorry, lady. It’s nothing personal. I can’t have any witnesses.

    When moderate to severe

    ulcerative colitis persists…

    Bonnie: I’m sorry, I don’t know what you mean.

    Alex: Oh, then let me refresh your memory, bonnie. A few years ago, as you were posing as his mother, adrienne, you killed my mother, anjelica devereaux.

    Bonnie: Oh, anjelica. Yeah, I–I didn’t kill her.

    Sonny: Yeah, no, she’s right. Your mom died from a heart attack.

    Alex: In your hotel room. And from what I heard, you left her for dead. So bonnie, give me one good reason why I shouldn’t return the favor.

    [Tense music]

    Justin: You’re worried I’m going to what? Murder orpheus?

    Steve: It’s not exactly a big leap. Do I need to remind you what you did the last time you were in a room with him? You pulled a gun on him while he was in police custody.

    Justin: Mm-hmm. And if I remember correctly, you convinced me to turn the gun over to you so you could do the deed yourself.

    Steve: That’s right.

    Justin: But you were just playing me in order to get the gun out of my hand.

    Steve: I was trying to save you from throwing your life away.

    Justin: I could have made that decision on my own.

    Steve: No. Not in that moment. You were grieving. You weren’t in your right mind.

    Justin: I’d say I was pretty clear.

    Steve: You see? This is what I’m talking about. It sounds like you feel cheated. Like you wish you had pulled that trigger.

    Justin: [Sighs]

    Steve: So now that orpheus is out, I need to know, I need to make sure you’re not planning to finish the job.

    Orpheus: I would like to know the answer to that myself.

    Kayla: Okay, there you go. I think you just have a bad sprain. If you stay off of it and rest it and ice it for a few days, it should be good as new. You’ll be on your feet.

    Eric: But for now, she just needs to rest, right?

    Kayla: Yep.

    Eric: Anything else treatment-wise?

    Kayla: Nope. She can just use over-the-counter pain meds, and if things get worse, you can call me, and I’ll prescribe something stronger.

    Nicole: Okay. I should be fine. Now that you wrapped it nice and tight, it feels pretty good.

    Kayla: Glad to hear it.

    Nicole: Although, what would make me feel better is if rafe gets that maniac who did this to me off the streets.

    Jada: Where were shots fired?

    Rafe: Outside the jewelry store off the square. Let’s go.

    Ava: Look. Look, I don’t know what’s going on in your life, but… you don’t need to shoot me. All right? I don’t give a damn about having you arrested. I’m no friend of the cops. Okay? I just need to get an ambulance here… to help my boyfriend. You don’t want him to die.

    Greg: Just put the phone down!

    Ava: Okay, just go. Just go, all right? I’m not gonna tell anybody what I saw.

    Greg: Yeah, nice try. But as soon as I turn my head, you’re calling 911 and I’ve got the entire police force after me. Then they’ll lock this whole town down, and I’m stuck. I can’t have that. I’m sorry. But at least you get to be with your boyfriend.

    Rafe: Police! Drop the gun!

    Jada: He said drop it now!

    [Tense music]

    [Gunshot bangs]

    Greg: [Coughs] Migraine hits hard, so u hit back with ubrelvy

    Orpheus: Sorry to drop by unannounced. But I figured you gentlemen might take exception to my release.

    Justin: I wonder why you’d think that.

    Steve: What do you want?

    Orpheus: Well, as you know, I’m not one to sit back and let things happen, so rather than wait for you to appear at my doorstep, I thought I’d come by, say hi, and get a sense of your intentions.

    Steve: Our intentions?

    Orpheus: Namely, justin, are you intending to come after me?

    Justin: You think I’d tell you if I was?

    Orpheus: Actually, yes. You’ve always been a very straightforward guy. You’ve never hidden your animosity towards me. Although it’s based on a misunderstanding.

    Justin: Misunderstanding? You killed my wife.

    Orpheus: Accidentally. Look… my hands may not be the cleanest in the world, but I did not intend to hurt adrienne. It was simply the wrong place at the wrong time.

    Justin: You cold son of a bitch.

    Steve: If you’re trying to make things better here, it’s not working.

    Orpheus: I’m just stating facts.

    Justin: The facts are, you ran adrienne of the road, and you were too busy framing maggie to call for help.

    Orpheus: I… I don’t deny that I was in the midst of tying off loose ends.

    Steve: Is that supposed to excuse your actions?

    Orpheus: No. No. I’m not making any excuses. And for what it’s worth, I’m sorry for your loss. Truly. But I’ve gotta get on with my life, and I’m here to find out if I should expect retaliation from either of you.

    Justin: When I lost adrienne, I really didn’t think I had anything left except to kill you. But when steve convinced me that I shouldn’t blow you away, I realized that even though you had taken adrienne away from me, I still had a lot to live for. I have four incredible sons, a beautiful granddaughter, and I was lucky enough to find love again.

    Orpheus: I heard you’d remarried.

    Justin: Mm-hmm. And if I had killed you, I would have been tossing all of that away. I promise you, your miserable life isn’t worth one second of my time with the people that I love.

    Orpheus: So we’re good.

    Justin: No. No. We are far from good. I eagerly anticipate the day you start to rot in hell. But I am not going after you because you’re already dead to me. It’s good to see you again, steve.

    [Tense music]

    Sonny: Whoa, whoa, alex. What the hell are you doing?

    Bonnie: Okay, I–I’m sorry. I didn’t–I really didn’t wanna leave your mother in that hotel room.

    Alex: But you did. And she died.

    Bonnie: No, I– I just was already in so deep. And you know what? It was her idea, you know. She came up with the idea for me to pose as adrienne.

    Alex: No, I knew you were just caught as an innocent in the mix of all of this, right?

    Bonnie: Well, no. It just– I never thought I’d just–

    Alex: You would leave a trail of bodies behind?

    Sonny: Alex, just put the tie down.

    Bonnie: I am really sorry. I am sorry. I know I’ve made about a million and a half mistakes, but the truth is, I just was desperate to stay out of prison.

    Sonny: It’s true. I’m telling you, it’s true. And we have all forgiven her. Dad did too.

    Bonnie: Please. I’m really sorry about your mother.

    Sonny: Alex.

    Alex: [Laughs] Relax. The look on your two faces. Are you kidding me? Did you really think I was gonna do something with this? The hell do I look like? A necktie killer?

    Sonny: What?

    Bonnie: Wait, what?

    Sonny: Are you– it was a joke?

    Alex: Call it a test.

    Bonnie: Oh, my god. Thank god. I thought you were going to–

    Alex: I know what you thought. I just wanted to see how you’d react. Look, bonnie, I’m not happy about what happened to my mother. But I do know she wasn’t a saint. So I’d be willing to bet that whatever trouble found her, she put herself in that position.

    Bonnie: [Sighs] Then you really don’t hate me?

    Alex: Dad says you make him happy, so even if you’re the worst person in the world, how can I be mad at you?

    Bonnie: Oh, thanks. I think.

    Sonny: And, I mean, what you did to sonny’s mom was way worse, and this guy was able to forgive you, so why the hell shouldn’t I?

    Bonnie: [Chuckles] Right?

    Alex: What are you waiting for? Bring it in.

    [Bassy jazz music]

    [Alex exhales]

    [Bonnie chuckles]

    [Tense music]

    Rafe: He’s dead. Call it in, hunter.

    Jada: Okay.

    [Phone beeps] This is hunter. We got two shootings in the park. Perp is deceased. One victim, critical condition. Send an ambulance.

    Rafe: His pulse is weak, but it’s there.

    Ava: He’s lost so much blood, but I can’t get it to stop. I’m putting pressure, but it won’t go.

    Rafe: Detective hunter’s calling in the emts, so they’ll be here shortly.

    Ava: How could this happen? How could this happen? I can’t believe this happened to jake.

    Rafe: It’s okay. He’s gonna be okay.

    [Tense music]

    Alex: [Exhales]

    Bonnie: [Laughs] Whoa. Whoa! Oh, my–ooh. I’m spinning.

    [Laughs] I mean, we went from potential murder to shirtless hug in a matter of seconds.

    Alex: I said what I needed to say. I got it out of my system. I don’t believe in holding on to bad feelings. It creates negative energy.

    Bonnie: Yeah, well, that hug had plenty of positive energy.

    Sonny: Yeah, at least he toweled off before he hugged you.

    Alex: Well, I was indulging in a nice swim, working on my breaststroke when I greeted my brother here.

    Bonnie: Can’t blame him for wanting to take advantage of the pool, sonny. I mean, he obviously likes to keep in shape.

    Alex: Oh, thank you for noticing.

    Bonnie: I mean, really. Look at those abs.

    Alex: Ah.

    Bonnie: You could grate cheese off those.

    Alex: Ah, well–

    Bonnie: There’s more than six. One, two–

    Sonny: Okay, bonnie.

    Bonnie: Oh, what? I’m an admirer of the human form. So sue me.

    Alex: I think she’s a very flattering woman.

    Bonnie: And those are very flattering trunks.

    Alex: Thank you. Thank you.

    Bonnie: I’m sorry. May I just–ooh.


    Alex: Easy! Easy, killer. I’m ticklish.

    Bonnie: It’s like, wow.

    Alex: What are you doing?

    Justin: So…

    Bonnie: [Laughs]

    Justin: I see you’ve met my son.

    Bonnie: Yes, justin. I was just–

    Alex: There he is. Papa’s home. Now it’s a party.

    Bonnie: [Laughs]

    Justin: Alex.


    Kayla: All right. Well, the nurse should be in any minute with your crutches, and then you’ll be on your way.

    Nicole: Sounds good.

    Eric: Thanks, kayla.

    Nicole: Yeah. Thank you.

    Kayla: But listen, nicole, you might think about making an appointment with marlena. Talk this out. I mean, everything seems okay right now, but then, you know, ptsd could hit when you least expect it. Okay?

    [Phone beeps] Oh, sorry. Uh…

    Eric: Is everything okay?

    Kayla: Yeah. I gotta get going. I’m sorry, I have a incoming gunshot victim.

    Nicole: Oh, gosh. Yeah, go. Go.

    Eric: I’m gonna get her home, but thank you.

    Kayla: Okay.

    Eric: Good luck. Hey. All right, um…

    Nicole: Uh… you know what? If you hadn’t shown up when you did… that might have been me.

    Ava: Jake, you hang in there. Hang in there. Help is here.

    Kayla: Is this our gunshot victim?

    Rafe: Yeah.

    Kayla: Jake.

    Rafe: It was a robbery gone bad.

    Kayla: Another robbery?

    Jada: He’s lost a lot of blood.

    Kayla: Ava, you all right?

    Ava: I’m fine. I’m fine. Please just help him.

    Kayla: Okay. We’ll do everything we can. All right. Don’t see an exit wound anywhere. We need to get him to surgery.

    Ava: Okay, kayla, he has to make it. Please, please tell me–

    Kayla: Okay, I’ll come talk to you as soon as I know anything, all right?

    Ava: Okay, jake? Jake?

    Jada: Why don’t we go sit in the waiting room?

    Ava: Okay. I will be here. You come back to me, okay, jake?

    Jada: Let them do what they need to do.

    Ava: Oh, my god. Oh, my god.

    Rafe: Ava, listen. I know we’ve been through a lot, but I’m here for you if you need me. Announcer: Type 2 diabetes?

    Alex: Did I tell you guys? Hendo’s got a gift.

    Justin: Hendo?

    Sonny: Ah, yes. Hendo. Apparently, that’s what we’re calling henderson now.

    Justin: Ah.

    Bonnie: But isn’t it just half iced tea and half lemonade?

    Alex: Oh, there’s a lot more to it than that, bonnie. This is an art.

    Justin: Well, it is refreshing. So alex, what prompted this visit to salem?Pted this visit I mean, not that I mind.

    Sonny: Well, apparently it’s not just a visit. Apparently, alex was thinking about staying for a little while.

    Justin: No kidding.

    Bonnie: Great. Happy to have you. Here. Happy to have you here.

    Justin: So what about the business in phoenix?

    Alex: Dad, I needed a little break, to be honest with you. And I thought it would be nice to just see some family, hang out by the pool… see uncle vic, aunt maggie.

    Justin: Well, they’re gonna be thrilled to see you. So are we talking about a few weeks?

    Alex: Well, that’s what i thought originally, but then after seeing how relaxing this place is, I might just take the summer off.

    Sonny: [Chuckles] Really?

    Alex: What? It beats hanging out in a blistering arizona desert. And I get to spend a couple more months with my baby bro. So we are gonna go work out. You are gonna show me around town, take me to some of those little bars you like so much.

    Sonny: Right. Yeah. That sounds awesome.

    Alex: Good.

    Sonny: But, um… you know, titan actually has me pretty busy right now, so–

    Alex: Ah, yeah. Maybe I’ll come work with you.

    Sonny: Uh…

    Steve: So…

    Orpheus: So…

    Steve: Well, let’s hear it.

    Orpheus: Am I supposed to know what that means?

    Steve: You can save the innocent act for someone who doesn’t know you. And we both know you got that pardon for a reason.

    Orpheus: I don’t know what you’re implying, steve. I did my best to be a model prisoner, and now that I’m out, I’m just trying to keep my nose clean.

    Steve: Sure you are.

    Orpheus: Which reminds me, I need to find myself some gainful employment. You happen to know if they’re still hiring here?

    Steve: You wanna work at the brady pub?

    Orpheus: Well, my old pal clyde works here. Word is, roman’s in the second chance business.

    Steve: You think you’re only on a second chance?

    Orpheus: Hmm. Sometimes it takes a few for it to stick. Look, I… I know I’ve caused my share of pain, especially to your family. But all that’s behind me now. Instead of infamous villain orpheus, I could just be… milo harp, short order cook.


    Steve: Huh. Well, if you really want that kind of work, there are a lot of restaurants outside of salem that you could choose from. I mean, why stay here where everyone despises you?

    Orpheus: Oh, maybe I like it here.

    Steve: Mm. Well, you’ll never be able to live down your past. So if you’re really serious about cleaning up your act, why don’t you go someplace else? Get a fresh start.

    Orpheus: Well, maybe you’re right. Maybe that makes more sense. I’ve always wanted to live out west.

    Steve: How far west?

    Orpheus: Well… they say seattle’s beautiful this time of year. Hey, while I’m there, maybe i could look in on your kids. What are their names again? Stephanie, uh, joey, and… tripp?

    Eric: Easy does it. And remember, small steps.

    Nicole: Okay. I know what I’m doing.

    Eric: All right. I’m just making sure you don’t stumble.

    Nicole: Okay. Rafe.

    Rafe: Hey.

    Nicole: Hey.

    Rafe: Hey. How are we doing?

    Nicole: Uh, actually it’s just a sprain, but I’ll be fine.

    Rafe: Oh, well, that’s good.

    Nicole: Yeah.

    Rafe: How– how are you feeling?

    Nicole: Well, you know what? Kayla wrapped it up nice and tight, so it’s good. And I’m working on my crutch skills.

    [Chuckles] Um, listen, any– any luck on finding the guy who attacked me?

    Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, we found him.

    Eric: Oh, that’s great. Is he in custody?

    Rafe: No. No, he’s dead.

    Nicole: What?

    Rafe: Yeah. We came upon him. I mean, detective hunter and i came upon him, and he was in the midst of committing another robbery.

    Eric: Who else was he trying to rob?

    Rafe: Ava.

    Nicole: Oh, is she all right?

    Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, he was– he was going to shoot her, but detective hunter shot him first.

    Eric: Oh, I hate to hear the loss of human life. We should be grateful that nobody else is gonna get hurt.

    Rafe: Yeah, unfortunately, that’s not the case, ’cause, um… as it happens, jake was with ava and… before we got to the scene, the gunman shot him.

    Nicole: Jake?

    Rafe: Mm-hmm.

    Eric: Kayla’s patient, the gunshot victim.

    Rafe: Yeah. He’s being rushed into surgery as we speak.

    Nicole: Is he…

    Rafe: We don’t know.

    Nicole: Oh, my god.

    Rafe: Yeah. I’m just glad you’re okay.

    Nicole: Yeah.

    Eric: Well, looks like you can handle things from here.

    Rafe: Yeah, listen. Before you go, I just wanna say… I’m sorry for how I acted, you know, at the park.

    Eric: It’s okay. You already apologized.

    Rafe: Yeah. Thanks again for bringing nicole to the hospital.

    Nicole: Yeah, thank you, eric.

    Eric: You’re welcome. Just remember, take it easy. Rest well.

    Nicole: Oh.

    Jada: Is there anything I can get you?

    Ava: No. Thanks.

    Jada: You sure?

    Ava: Look, I’m fine, all right? I’m not the one who just took a bullet.

    Jada: Ava, I know we just met, but my father used to work at this hospital, and from what I hear, they are the best. Jake is in good hands.

    Ava: Yeah.

    Jada: You wanna talk about it?

    Ava: Look, I don’t know what you’ve heard about me, but this isn’t the first time I’ve seen somebody shot in front of me. All right? The life I grew up in, it’s pretty much a regular occurrence. But seeing someone that you care about… bleeding out in front of you on the ground, that is something that you never get used to.

    Jada: Sounds like you love him very much.

    Ava: Yeah, for the first time in my life, I finally thought that I could… hold on to the person I love. But, um… I will not be weak.

    [Somber music]

    Jada: You’re not weak. You’re just scared. Listen, why don’t I get you a bottle of water, maybe a granola bar?

    Ava: I’m not hungry.

    Jada: Jake might be in surgery for a while, and you need to keep your strength up.

    Ava: Okay. All right, thank you.

    I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

    [Tense music]

    Steve: Are you threatening my children?

    Orpheus: I didn’t threaten anyone.

    Steve: You better not even think about going anywhere near my children.

    Orpheus: Steve… you’re the one who suggested I leave town.

    Steve: What is this? What kind of game are you playing?

    Orpheus: No game. But if my moving is gonna create trouble… you win. I’ll stay in salem. Guess I’ll be seeing you.

    [Tense music]

    Sonny: You wanna work with me at titan?

    Alex: Unless you don’t want me to.

    Sonny: No. No, actually, I don’t have a problem with it, but, I mean, didn’t you just say you wanted to take the summer off?

    Alex: I did say that.

    Sonny: So then why don’t you just stay in phoenix, you know? Tough it out in the twins.

    Alex: Yeah, I don’t wanna tough it out with the twins. I told you I’m sick and tired of knocking heads with joe and vic.

    Justin: Knocking heads? I didn’t know the three of you were having issues.

    Alex: Dad, we just have different ways of thinking, especially when it comes to business.

    Sonny: And what about you and me?

    Alex: What about you and me? You and me have always been good. You’ve always gotten me. Am I wrong? You get me.

    Sonny: Actually, I think I do.

    Alex: Well, then there you go. Sonny, think about it. Kiriakis brothers working together again.

    [Makes blast noise] How awesome is that gonna be? Think about it.

    Sonny: Sounds pretty good. Okay. Okay.

    Jada: [Sighs]

    Eric: Jada. You okay?

    Jada: Eric. I, uh…

    Eric: Hey. What’s wrong?

    Jada: I killed a man in the line of duty today.

    Eric: I heard. It must be very upsetting.

    Jada: That’s, uh– it shouldn’t have been, though. It shouldn’t be. He was about to shoot that woman. I-I know I did the right thing. I did the only thing. I–it’s my job. But still…

    Eric: Life and death. That’s–it’s a heavy situation.

    Jada: And it’s never gonna get easier. And to be honest… I don’t think it ever will be.

    Eric: Well, from where I stand, you should be proud of yourself. You saved somebody’s life today.

    [Soft somber music]

    Nicole: How badly was jake hurt? Is he– is he gonna make it?

    Rafe: Um… I don’t know.

    Nicole: How’s ava holding up?

    Rafe: Not good.

    Nicole: I had no idea they were so close.

    Rafe: Yeah. I didn’t either. But now, seeing how broken up she was, I… can tell it’s really serious between them.

    [Somber music]

    Ava: Kayla. Kayla, how’s jake? Is–is his surgery over?

    Kayla: There was no surgery, ava.

    Ava: W-what are you talking about? That’s where you said you were taking him.

    Kayla: Jake coded on the way to the operating room.

    Ava: He coded?

    Kayla: His heart stopped.

    Ava: Oh, god.

    Kayla: We took him to the er. We tried to do everything we could. The trauma team, they really tried, but they could not get his heart beating again.

    Ava: No. No, no, no. No.

    Kayla: Ava, I’m sorry, but jake didn’t make it.

    [ Dramatic music ]

    Bill: Li. Li. I found you… living on the street. Now, clearly, you have suffered some significant trauma.

    Li: Sheila. Sheil–

    Bill: Yeah.

    Li: Sheila carter.

    Liam: Sheila carter. Right that’s right. She killed your son, and that’s tragic, but we’re going to find her. Okay?

    Li: No. He’s not dead. Finn is alive. My son is alive.

    Finn: You say you love me.

    Sheila: More than anything.

    Finn: How am I supposed to believe that, when all you do is take away what I love?

    Sheila: That was– that was never my intention.

    Finn: Then, make it right, sheila. Start by letting me go so I can be… with my wife and son.

    [ Plane whooshing ]

    Taylor: Can this thing go any faster?

    Ridge: We’ll be in monaco before you know it.

    Taylor: Not exactly the reunion I was hoping for. Meeting our daughter at a depression rehab.

    Ridge: I thought she was. Starting to recover.

    Taylor: You know, I– I should of dug deeper. I should have– I should have– I should have pushed more. But I didn’t want to– I didn’t want to push her too much. I wanted to take her at her word that she was– that she was doing okay. But losing finn– she’s never going to come back from that.

    Ridge: We’ll make sure she does.

    Taylor: I just want to hold steffy. She must feel so alone without finn. We just have to remind her that we are there for her. That her family is there to support her.

    Ridge: Unfortunately, we are not what steffy needs right now. There was only one person who could lift that darkness… …and he’s gone forever.

    Finn: You carried me in your womb. That’s the first human connection that I ever had. That’s why I wanted to believe… that there was good in you.

    Shelia: The best part of me… is my love for you.

    Finn: But that’s the thing, sheila. This doesn’t feel like love. It feels like punishment. Holding me here against my will? Sedating me when I try to leave? Keeping me away from my family? Letting steffy think that I’m dead? Do you have any idea how much pain that must be causing her? I will never see my mother again because of you. I won’t let the same thing happen with steffy.

    Bill: Listen, uh… we understand your– your being confused. You’ve suffered some kind of significant trauma, and– and you’re still affected by it.

    Liam: And that’s on top of losing your son. So–

    Li: No. No, he’s not dead. He’s alive. He’s with sheila. (Vo) at dog chow

    [ Plane whooshing ]

    Taylor: It’s so unfair. Taken away from his family by his birth mother.

    Ridge: Right in front of steffy. How do you get that image out of your head?

    Taylor: Hopefully, she’s getting the tools that she needs.

    Ridge: She has you.

    Taylor: She has us.

    Ridge: She has us.

    Taylor: Yes.

    Ridge: And we’re going to protect her. Her and the kids.

    Taylor: Yeah. You know, it hurts my heart.. that hayes is going to grow up never knowing who his father was. Never knowing what an exceptional man he was. How happy he made steffy.

    Finn: What are you doing?

    Shelia: I’m just making sure your vitals are stable.

    No. I’m talking long term. None of this is sustainable. You know that, don’t you? Not for one more day. I’m not helpless. You can’t keep me here any longer, sheila. I’m done.

    Sheila: I’m sorry. I never meant for any of this to happen. I came… back to L.A. With nothing but good intentions. I wanted to meet… my son. I wanted to look you in the eye and tell you that I was your mother. And I never stopped loving you. But things could have been so different if steffy would have just accepted me.

    Finn: There you go. Always blaming others for what you set in motion. None of this is steffy’s fault. It’s yours.

    Shelia: Ah you– you want to believe that steffy is blameless in all of this. But had she opened her heart just a little and given me a chance? I would have proven myself. And I would have been a part of this family. Taken my rightful place in my son and my grandson’s lives. But no. No, she wouldn’t allow it. She was– she was hell bent on stopping that. And finn– I just–

    [ Breathing heavy ] I just lost it.

    Finn: Yeah. You tried to kill her, and you shot me instead.

    Sheila: You weren’t supposed to be there.

    Finn: Sheila! Listen to yourself. Just stop it. Stop trying to justify this unforgivable thing.

    Sheila: Oh, don’t say that. Don’t say that it’s unforgivable. You don’t mean that. Please. I love you, finn. And I don’t want to lose you. I don’t want to go to prison for the rest of my life thinking that I’m never going to see you or hayes again. You have to believe me. I– shooting you was the worst thing I have ever done. But it was an accident. I mean it. I didn’t want to hurt you or steffy or li.

    Li: I’m telling the truth.

    Bill: I believe that you believe that you’re telling the truth, but–

    Li: He is.

    Liam: Okay, hol–hold. Wait. You’re saying that finn is alive? You’re also saying that he’s with sheila?

    [ Li sighs ]

    Li: Everyone wrote him off except me. That hospital– he didn’t die. I saved him. Refused to give up on my son. Refused to let sheila take him from me.

    Bill: And now finn is with her?

    Li: Yes! I have to stop sheila. Hi, my name’s steve.

    Ridge: Oh, I hate long flights.

    Taylor: I know you do. Why don’t you try to get some rest for just a little bit?

    Ridge: I can’t rest– I can’T. I’m too wound up.

    Taylor: Sit down.

    Ridge: All right. Just sit, I guess. I’ll read this. What are you doing?

    Taylor: Damnit.

    Ridge: What?

    Taylor: The wi-fi went out again.

    Ridge: Sorry. What were you working on?

    Taylor: Well… I’m doing a little bit of social media stalking right now. I haven’t heard back from li, for a little bit. I don’t know. I think– I think it’s really odd that she’s just disappeared. No word from li.

    Bill: I know it’s hard, but can you help us understand?

    Liam: Yeah. Because, li, this whole time, everybody, including his wife, has believed that finn was dead. I mean, steffy even tried to talk to you about a memorial service. Do you remember that?

    Li: It’s the way I wanted it.

    Liam: Why?

    Li: What I found out about finn…

    Bill: It’s okay. We’re here to help you.

    Li: He was on life support. No brain activity. His doctor thought finn had no chance. But… I knew my son. I knew my son is a fighter. He just needed time. Oh, so… I smuggled him out. Signed the death certificate. Broke laws… …procedures… to get him to a safe place. Where I can give him the care that he needed to live. I was nursing finn back to health. But sheila broke out and somehow tracked me down.

    Sheila: Where is my son?

    Liam: And she didn’t even know that finn was alive?

    Li: She wanted to know where he was laid to rest to say goodbye. I tried getting rid of her. But finn stirred in the other room. She shoved me out of the way. And…no denying what she saw.

    Bill: Finn. Very much alive.

    Li: Yes.

    Liam: Oh, my god. That’s why no tombstone. That’s why no memorial service, of course.

    Li: I tried to warn the police about sheila. But she caught me. Chased me. I lost control of the car and crashed in the water.

    Bill: That’s how you ended up in the alley, and suffered all that trauma.

    Liam: Li, if finn really is alive, it’s because you saved him.

    Li: And he’s with sheila. I have to save him again.

    Shelia: I am so incredibly sorry. How many times do I have to say that? Does it even count that I saved your life?

    Finn: My mother brought me back to life. It was li.

    Sheila: That was the first time. You don’t even remember. Your heart stopped, finn. And it terrified me. I didn’t know what to do. And I– I saw the paddles. I saw the paddles, and I used them on you. I saved your life. I did that. Your real mother.

    Finn: Who loves me, right?

    Sheila: More than anything.

    Finn: Then, let me go. You saved my life. Let me live it.

    Sheila: It was never my intention to make you a prisoner here. To keep you away from steffy and hayes. I would never deprive you of your family.

    Finn: That’s exactly what you’re doing.

    Sheila: I just wanted this time with you.

    Finn: Oh, come on, sheila. I won’t go another day… without seeing steffy. You say you want my happiness? Well, nothing makes me happier than steffy, hayes and kelly. Let me go. Just let me go. (Vo) red lobster’s seafood summerfest is fire!

    Bill: This is unreal. Finn’s alive?

    Li: Yes.

    Liam: My god. Steffy needs to know. I gotta tell her.

    Bill: No.

    Liam: What? Why?

    Bill: If finn’s been with sheila, he’s not safe. No one can know until we have him in hand.

    Liam: You’re right.

    Bill: Can you take me to them?

    Li: I’ll recognize the building if I see it.

    Liam: Okay. You text me when you find it. I’m gonna call baker.

    Bill: All right. We’ll get your son.

    [ Plane whooshing ]

    Taylor: Oh.

    Ridge: Oh, I’m sorry. I didn’t mean to wake you.

    Taylor: I didn’t mean to use you as a pillow.

    Ridge: Use me anytime you want.

    Taylor: Ridge, I was having the most wonderful dream. There was a bonfire on the beach, and steffy and finn were there. And they were together. She was so happy.

    Sheila: How did this happen? Why does… this always happen to me? We– but we can get past this. We can start over. No, we– we can. We can. You are a kind, compassionate man. Maybe you can– maybe you can show a little bit of that to a woman that gave birth to you.

    Finn: You tried to shoot my wife, and you killed my mother. I wish it wasn’t too late to save her, but you know what? I can promise you this: You will never terrorize steffy again, and you will never know, hayes.

    Sheila: No. I just wanted to be near you… and hayes. Steffy, too. I– I wanted to love all of you.

    Finn: It’s not possible.

    Sheila: What are you doing?

    Finn: I don’t think it ever was.

    Sheila: You can’t do that. You’re not strong enough yet.

    Finn: I’m good.

    Sheila: You can’t just walk out of here.

    [ Long beep ] You can’t walk out.

    Finn: How are going to stop me? You going to shoot me again? Going to stick me with a needle?

    Sheila: No, son.

    Finn: No. No, I’m not your son. Do you have any idea what you’ve taken from me?

    Sheila: I’m sorry.

    Finn: I want to believe that. But what I want even more is for you to see all of the harm and destruction that you’ve caused. You can’t stop me. This time, this time here with you… it’s over. It’s over.

    Sheila: Yeah, go ahead. I’m not going to stop you from trying to find steffy.

    Finn: I wish it could have been different.

    Sheila: Finn?

    [ Footsteps ]

    [ Door clicking ]

    Bill: You really are alive.

    Bill: You’re safe now.

    [ Li sighs ]

    Finn: Mom? Mom?

    Li: Finn. Thank god. Finn. Finn. Finn. Thank god.

    Finn: Mom, you’re alive?

    Li: Ah, finn. Oh. [ Gasping sobs ]

    General Hospital Transcript

    Transcript provided by Suzanne


    youa few questions about your recent visitor. If you’re talking about esme, she’s not our visitor. She’s our guest. I wasn’t referring to esme. Then who? But since you mention her, would she or anyone else in your household have any reason to meet with a man who traffics black-market goods? I need your help. Why the sad face? Don’t you know by now we can accomplish anything if we put our minds to it? You’re right. Thank you, daddy. So tell me… where have you been? Kevin had pcu cancel my internship and had me banned from spring ridge. Family — often more trouble than it’s worth. Well, I sincerely hope that you don’t mean that. I’m considering sacrificing everything in the name of family. That’s not a good idea. I know. Hello, trina. Why are you here? I’m here for you. Thanks for the tip. Mm-hmm. Remember, every time she’s here… I’ll call.

    [ Clicks tongue ] I think we needed this. I have to stick to mocktails. I’m going into the hospital later. Boo. Boo. What a pleasant surprise. “Pleasant” is in the eye of the beholder.

    Come on, baby

    Any idea what he plans to say on the stand? No. He was asking questions about the trial yesterday. He didn’t even mention that he’d be here today. So you’re here for me? You contacted diane and volunteered to testify on my behalf? Trina. You’re a witness for the prosecution. How could you possibly help me? By doing my part. What does that even mean? It means I’m going to tell the truth. The actual truth? Or the gospel according to esme? Ms. Robinson, can you excuse us? Gladly. Mr. Cassadine, glad to see you. Where is esme prince, and why isn’t she in this courtroom? Hey. Are you okay? I was a fool to believe that this would all work out. I can’t think of anyone who would have any reason to associate with a black market vendor. The individual I’m referring to, oz haggerty, was seen boarding a launch to your home yesterday at approximately 10:30 A.M. This is news to me. May I offer you a drink? Would you like iced tea? Water? I know you’re on duty. No, thank you. This shouldn’t take long. Well, I wish I could be more help, but I wasn’t here much yesterday. Who was home? Ryan: Sacrifice everything. What does that mean? I, um, can’t stay long. If kevin learns of this visit, he’ll make trouble. Well, you obviously worked your way around him. How’d you manage that? Nikolas… pulled strings. Why? I was convincing.

    [ Chuckles ] Oh. You held your tryst over his head. Was that wise? Well, what’s leverage if you can’t use it? He may feel compelled to confess to ava. I thought you wanted ava to learn of nikolas’s unfaithfulness. On our terms. If the transparency comes from him, it could work to his advantage. The noble sinner confesses and comes clean. All that crap. Boy, for such a smart girl, sometimes you can just be so… what? Short sighted. I’d be careful if I were you. It was my shortsightedness that got me back in here, now, wasn’t it? Well… when you’re right, you’re right. Thank you. Besides, if anyone is to blame for our separation, it’s probably your old friend felicia. What about her? I think she’s the one who ratted me out to kevin.

    [ Purse slams ] Maxie: [ Chuckles ] Ooh. Would you care to join us? Up to britt. I’d rather ride a horse. Been ducking my calls, my texts, my e-mails. If I didn’t know better, I’d think that you’ve been avoiding me. My advice? Know better. Okay. What am I missing here? Cody here… was my last society setups date. And by last, I mean I will — no, hold on. Wait one second. The only thing I know about your society setups dates is that your last one was terrible. No offense. None taken. Her date was terrible, and it was completely my fault. Do you mean that? Or are you just telling me what you think I want to hear? I do mean that, and all I’m asking is for you to let me make it up to you. I’ll text you my answer. Hm. You know what makes for a really good apology? A beverage. Let’s start with those. Any preference, ladies? Oh, something fruity.

    [ Sighs ] Virgin margarita. This guy really gets to you. Because he’s arrogant, infuriating, and persistent. Mm-hmm. Seems like society setups got this one right.

    [ Scoffs ]

    cody and i are the opposite of a match. I mean, between the horse and the straw hay and — wait. You do know that straw and hay are two entirely different things, right? I didn’t, maxie. Nor do I care. But cody does. You should ask him. This guy has really gotten under your skin. That could mean something. All right, here we go. -A piña colada… -ooh! Thank you. …For the lady. A beer for the me. And virgin margarita for the other lady. Gee, thanks. Does it taste like lies? What’s it going to take to start over? Okay. Mm… I’m gonna powder my nose. Good. Now I can really begin my groveling. Shouldn’t you be on the ground for that? I would if I thought it would work. You wouldn’t respect a man who did that, would you? Only one way to find out. Look. I really am sorry. I admit it, I was wrong. I was trying too hard to be someone that I thought you wanted instead of actually getting to know the real you. I really am sorry. Okay? It won’t happen again. I promise. From now on, all you’re going to get is the unadulterated, pure this guy. Remember, you asked for it. What do you say? You willing to forgive and forget? Is there any word from portia? She’s still dealing with a patient emergency. Trina will understand. What did spencer say? He’s testifying for the other side. Oh. Because he is a spoiled, selfish tool. And you know what the worst part is? For a split second, I thought spencer came to tell me he had my back. I need esme prince on the stand. -So do I. -Excuse me? Don’t worry. I’ll make sure that esme gets here. Felicia and my brother will be dealt with. Just like anybody who stands in our way. Oh, daddy, you say the sweetest things. Thank you. In the meantime, you need to put some distance between yourself and the cassadines. I think that I should stay at least a few more days. Why? We don’t need anything else from them. Well, that may be true for you. Esme, why did you come here? Spencer wants my help to exonerate trina in exchange for information. You played with that gang of wayward children like they were spiders in a jar, and now you’re paying the price. So what is spencer offering? The identity of my birth mother.

    [ Cell phone chimes ] Not on my time. Spencer and I spent most of the morning at G.H. Ava was at the courthouse attending trina’s trial. And esme? As far as I know, she was here all day. Could she have left without your knowledge? I’m not her jailer. She’s free to do as she pleases. So, yes. Anyone else? Just the staff. How long was this guy on the island? Undetermined. He was last seen boarding the launch at 10:30 am and didn’t return to the mainland via the launch. Any idea how he got off the island? Not offhand. You know… I could be more help if you clued me in on what this is about. Mr. Haggerty is currently hospitalized. Drug overdose. You think he obtained the drugs here? Potentially. I’m also trying to ascertain if he provided an unregistered phone used to illegally film an intimate encounter. The sex tape that trina’s accused of making. New evidence suggests that mr. Haggerty’s testimony may have bearing on the case. Why not just ask him? Oh, I’d love to, but he’s in a medically induced coma, which, of course, means he can’t testify either. Convenient, huh?

    Was mr. Haggerty’s overdose accidental? There’s evidence he had a visitor before his collapse. Any idea who? Thank you for your time, mr. Cassadine. Please speak with your household staff. I’ll take care of it personally. Oh, and if esme saw mr. Haggerty, we’ll need to speak with her right away. Of course I want to keep an eye on you, esme. You helped spencer terrorize my wife. Everything I did, I did for spencer. Am I supposed to believe that you don’t have a mind of your own? You couldn’t see spencer’s plot spiraling out of control? I don’t know how many times I can say this. I was wrong, and I’m sorr after all, trina’s like a surrogate daughtY.Ery daughters’ namesout your mouth, or I’ll make you sorry you ever drew breath. At least spence doesn’t believe the awful things that ava and sonny think about me that you’re responsible for that video of cameron and josslyn. They just refuse to accept that it was trina. Never mind that all of the evidence points towards her, that she had motive and was physically in the cabin while I was long gone. It’s easier to blame me. I was hoping that you’d be able to restore my internship at spring ridge, but while I was waiting for you, I… what? I realized how much this secret we’re keeping is weighing on me, and I just — I can’t keep going like this. I want to come clean. You don’t mean that. I do. I’m sick of the cover-ups, the lies of omission. I want to tell ava and spence that we slept together. Fine. You’re forgiven. But I never forget, ever. So what you’re saying is I’m unforgettable? Ugh, go away. You do know that smiling causes less wrinkles than frowning. You may not care now, but when you hit 50. Yeah, right. Look, okay. You bought me a peace offering. I begrudgingly accepted it. Let’s move on. To maybe another date?

    [ Laughs ] Not if you were the last cowpoke in the countryside. I don’t get it. Why won’t you let anyone close to you? You don’t know me. No, I don’T. But I’m trying to get to know you. Okay. Well, then, know this. This is the absolute height of arrogance to assume, because I don’t want you to get close to me, that I don’t want anyone to get close to me. Yeah, I — I saw the video of your ted talk at the mixer. Your views on love are pretty clear. All right. Okay, I’m done. Now — maxie, I’m sorry, I’m late for work. Wait, what? Britt! How did I do? Oh, that was a clear triumph. Mr. Cassadine, do you recall the weekend getaway you took in january with cameron webber, josslyn jacks, esme prince, and the defendant? I do. We were supposed to spend the weekend at my uncle sonny’s cabin. -Supposed to. -Our weekend was cut short. -Why was that, mr. Cassadine? -Objection, your honor. Josslyn jacks and cameron webber have already testified on record as to why that night, that weekend ended early. Miss jacks and mr. Weber stayed. It might benefit the court to hear mr. Cassadine’s perspective of that evening’s events. Judge young: I’ll allow it. Why did the night end early, mr. Cassadine? Trina was sick. And upset. She ran out of the room while the rest of us argued. And while this argument took place, where was the defendant? -In her room. -Or so she claims. Objection, your honor. This blatant sarcasm is an attempt to influence the jury. If the A.D.A. Actually has a question, do you think she could ask it? Whoa! Where are you off to in such a hurry? Whatever this is, I don’t have time. I have to go get ava. W-what, is she in trouble? No, but my marriage is. Well, w-w– mistakes are made in haste, dear boy. Now slow down. Tell me what this is about. I’ve made a mess. Well, then, it’s lucky for you I showed up when I did. Cleaning up messes is one of my specialties. No, I don’t think you can fix this. Oh, let me be the judge of that. Now, what’s the nature of this particular mess? It’s esme. There’s a delicate matter that she may tell my wife about. What could esme possibly tell ava that would — oh, no, nikolas! Oh, tell me you didn’t! I did, okay? And if I don’t stop her, esme is going to tell ava everything, and she’s going to blow my future and my family to hell. Well, thanks to your childish vendetta against the robinson girl, spencer now has a bargaining chip. Worse, his curiosity could lead him to discover that I’m your father. That’s your only concern? You’ve been compromised, esme. You’re of no use to me. So this relationship is purely transactional? Your brother, kevin, told me that he feared that you could never truly care for another person, and I’m starting to think that he is right. You know I care about you. Do you? Then why do you never ask me what I want? Fine. What do you want, esme? To know who my mother is. You can’t be considering spencer’s offer. I need the truth. If not from spencer, then from you. Whatever it takes. Did spencer happen to mention how he came by your mother’s identity? His uncle victor. Victor cassadine. Well, he has considerable resources, and so do I. And if I couldn’t find her, I’m not so sure he could either. There’s a dna test. There’s a dna test? You submitted to a test with names and identifiable markers? -Of course not, but spencer — -managed to get a sample anyway. How convenient. We live in the same house. It’s not like it would be difficult. Taking this deal is a bad idea. If you don’t want spencer to tell me who my mother is, fine. You tell me.

    I don’t know how to read britt, and every time she baits me, I just — ergh — walk right into it. There’s a word for that, you know? Insanity? Chemistry. Well, whatever you call it, I’m still dumb enough to pursue it. Any advice? Um, well, I would advise you to be fearless. But you are the guy that dropped into a pool from 10,000 feet, so… still safer than approaching britt westbourne. Oh, come on. Her bark is worse than her bite. Actually, no. Scratch that. They’re both pretty terrifying. Look, britt just wants someone who lets her be herself at her best and especially at her worst. Okay. You know, I might be able to show her that I can be that guy, but I’m going to need your help. Judge young: Objection sustained. Counselor, if you can’t make your case without editorializing for the jury, perhaps we should stop right now. A.D.A. Arden: Apologies, your honor. Mr. Cassadine, did you see the defendant go into her room? -No. -Can you verify that she was in her room from the time she left the group until the time you left? -No. -Thank you. Back to this argument — what happened next? Joss went in on me pretty hard. She thought that esme suggested the drinking game to upset trina, which was completely unfair. At this time, esme held nothing but admiration for trina, and we were both close friends of trina’S. That’s not true. Should we object? Not right now, dear. Just let him — this is one time when we want him to talk. Was it at that point that you and miss prince left the cabin? Yes. Esme demanded to leave as soon as she got back. Got back from where? Esme left the room to collect herself after joss unloaded on her. Dr. Westbourne, is the tox screen back on oz haggerty? I’m not sure, but I can check. I’m sorry, I’m just getting in, so I’m not quite up to speed yet. Is mr. Haggerty family? No. It’s related to an investigation. And might you have a warrant or a court order that would allow me to help you? How about this? I’ll ask questions, and you can answer them? Fire away. The paramedic report indicated that mr. Haggerty overdosed on prescription pain medication. Can you confirm or deny? Maybe. But first I need you to tell me something. I heard a nurse say that curtis ashford has taken up residence outside the patient’s room. Is there something that I should know? Not only did esme post the recording that she made of cam and josslyn, she may have drugged the person who sold her the phone to do it. He is in G.H. Right now in a coma. Well, you have to grant the lady is enterprising. Oh, she is a monster. And I allowed her in my home! Not to mention your bed. No one can judge me more harshly than I am judging myself right now. I’m not judging. I’m assessing. Well, assess faster. If esme is capable of framing trina, what might she do to spencer or to ava? I-I got to go and warn them. Oh, no. Neither ava nor spencer need ever know about this. As head of this family, I — I’ve made a decision. Esme’s no longer entitled to cassadine hospitality. What does that mean, exactly? Meaning it’s time to evict esme. For good. You’re always so vague on the subject of my mother. My relationship with your mother was… unorthodox. Our courtship was mysterious, exciting. I never knew her friends or her family. Not even her real name. You didn’t even know her name. So she was what? Just… some hookup? She has so much more than that. She understood me. She accepted me. And when she disappeared, I looked everywhere for her. So you don’t know who she is? I know her to her core. But, unfortunately, I can’t give you what you want. And I don’t know if spencer can either. He may be bluffing, even if he has this information, can you trust him to hold up his end of the deal? I don’t need to confess. I just need to find a way to get trina off the hook. So the state is left with no one to prosecute. I can always just run away. As if I’d ever allow that. And if I dare disobey you, what then? Then consider yourself an orphan. Again. Fine. I’ll stay. But if the authorities come looking my way for that stupid sex tape… I might have no choice but to leverage information about you in order to avoid jail time.

    So what do you think about society setups? Um, well, aside from the pretentious name, it seems legit. Yeah, britt doesn’t seem to think so. Britt is a natural skeptic, and as far as her experience with society setups goes, her results have been… mixed. Fair point. However, I do happen to know that zelda is a whiz at what she does. Oh, yes. Zelda is the real deal. So maybe if people britt cares about can think that I’m not “wrong” for her, britt can, too. Do you really like her? I’d like to like her. You think she’ll like this? A passport? Just open it. “No kids, no horses, no slippers. Just you, me, and the adventures we can have together.” And the first stamp is the quartermaine stables. Yeah. And I — I thought passport because we’re both explorers. And I — this is — ah, this is corny, isn’t it? This is, like, unforgivably corny. I shouldn’t have — oh, yeah. This is definitely corny, but it’s also really sweet. I just — I don’t get the slippers reference. Yeah, you had to be there. Tell me honestly, though, like, britt going to hate it? Curtis doesn’t want to be too far away if mr. Haggerty wakes up. Because? Mr. Haggerty may have relevant information to a case that’s personally important to curtis. “Acute opioid intoxication. Ingested with alcohol, which led to an adverse reaction.” Did the patient have a prescription? If it’s drug history you’re after, I’m forbidden by law to tell you if this patient has ever visited our pharmacy or any pharmacy in western new york. Can you tell me if he hasn’t visited those pharmacies? I can confirm that there’s no record of him doing so. Is this a drug investigation? Because with cyrus gone, I hoped this problem was over. Have you had a rash of opioid overdoses? No. But I — I did have someone ask me recently about this drug in particular. The one haggerty O.D.’D on? Should I prepare my staff for more of these? That would be premature. Our interest in oz haggerty has less to do with drugs and more to do with the trina robinson trial. A.D.A. Arden: After you and miss prince departed, did you return at any point? No. We went to my grandmother’s house, where we were staying at the time. Mr. Cassadine, after you and miss prince left, is it your testimony that the only individual present in the cabin all night with miss jacks and mr. Webber was the defendant? I don’t know who or what happened at the house after we left. They could have thrown a rager with the neighbors for all I know. Mr. Cassadine, when you and miss prince left, was there anyone else in the house with miss jacks and mr. Webber, besides the defendant? To the best of your knowledge, yes or no? No. To the best of my knowledge, there was nobody else. No further questions for this witness. We will now adjourn for a short recess. Ms. Miller, you’ll have an opportunity to question the witness when we return.

    [ Bangs gavel ] Put your phone away. Whatever you’re planning, that’s not what I’m asking for. Nikolas, why let this girl jeopardize your happy home life, not to mention this family? Esme didn’t jeopardize anything. I did. I should have followed my heart and told ava everything

    [Sighs] Immediately.

    [ Sighs ] Nikolas, this gratuitous guilt is tedious, and in this case, it’s misguided. Esme was nothing more than a vengeful lolita who exploited her friends and then drugged a man into a catatonic stupor. We’ll all be a lot safer if she were eliminated. And if spencer ever finds out our part in that, I will lose my son again. You risk losing him if she lives. I don’t want to go down a path that I can’t come back from. That ship has already left southampton and is well on its way to the iceberg. Before my mother left, she was worried that I would fall into old patterns, and killing esme would definitely qualify. Yes, laura’s integrity is admirable, but sometimes she fails to see the bigger picture. I know that you don’t understand this, but I want to make her proud. And I want to show spencer and ava that I am willing to face up to my failings.

    [ Shudders ] My brother’s wrong. I’m not an unfeeling monster. Your mother meant everything to me. And so does our daughter. Then why didn’t you tell me any of this? That time in my life was very painful. You know, your mother was the only person I could completely be myself with. And then she walked away from me. And that’s why I can’t bear the thought of you doing the same. I would never do that to you. I would never leave you. And I would never, ever betray you. I know that, my sweet girl. Besides… there’s no place that you can go, no place you can run, no place on earth that I wouldn’t find you. One day, we will be reunited with your mother. Right now… we have more immediate concerns.

    [ Sobs ]

    -I think she’s going to love it. -Really? Yeah, right after she hates it first. Mm. You’re going to need a spare. In case she burns it? See, you already are learning how she thinks. Um, maybe you should give it to her. Oh, no, no way. I’m not getting in the middle of this mess. Come on. You already saw for yourself. Britt wants nothing to do with me. Yeah, the you she wanted nothing to do with was the phony you that showed up on your date. If you show up as the real you, gift in hand, heart on your sleeve, that might demonstrate you are exactly the right guy for her. Besides having a third party pass a note, that’s beneath everyone involved. All right. Got it. Thanks. What can I say? I’m a diehard romantic. Is the pat ient a potentialwitness in trina’s trial? The individual who inquired about this opioid, could they be connected to our victim? You don’t think this overdose was accidental. It’s early days. Could the individual who came to you asking about this drug shed any light on oz haggerty or the video of joss and cam? -It’s esme’S. -Does she get headaches? Does she complain about indigestion or dry mouth? Because those are some of the side effects. Are there others? Yes. It can make you tired, nervous. What happens if you mix it with alcohol? I can’t say. Is this conversation privileged? No. You’re protecting someone. I get it. But a young woman’s freedom may be at stake. What happens if I give up this person’s identity and the information becomes useless? If it doesn’t help trina, then we never had this conversation. How about it? Can you tell me what you know and let me decide if it’s relevant?

    [ Cellphone rings ] It is bad enough that you trashed our friendship to side with your psycho girlfriend. You also had to testify against me? I didn’t have a choice, trina. I was subpoenaed. Like that makes a difference. Esme would have volunteered you. She won’t stop till she destroys me. And you’re just — you’re happy to help. You’re wrong. Prove it. Come on, trina. He’s not worth it. Truest thing said in the courtroom today. I don’t understand your confused sense of honor. Personally, I’d rather bury accusation and accuser before throwing myself on the mercies of an angry wife. Okay, I appreciate the thought, sort of, but when it comes to ava, I refuse to compound my mistakes. I’m done lying. All right, well, at least let me drop you at the courthouse. Johann has a talent for shortcuts. And speed limits? It’s like flying on angel’s wings.

    [ Chuckles ] I’ll take it. I need all the help I can get. If ava and nikolas survive this infidelity, then all of our efforts would have been for nothing. That cannot happen. You understand?

    [ Cellphone rings ]

    [ Sighs ] I have to take this. A.D.A. Arden, I was just about to call you. Why call when you could be here in person like you’re supposed to?

    Where are you? I had a family matter. If you’re not here when this recess ends in 10 minutes, expect to be held in contempt. I’m on my way.

    [ Sighs ] I have to go. Esme. If you promise not to do what spencer asks, I’ll make a promise of my own. What promise? When I get out of here, you and I will find your mother. Together. No promises.

    [ Door slams ]

    [ Grunts ] I know that was hard, trina. But there’s good news. Not from where I was sitting. Spencer cassadine was not able to account for all of esme’s whereabouts. That gives us an opening that we did not have before he took the stand. Which means? Which means that, when esme prince gets on the stand, all bets are off. I should have handled my testimony better yesterday. You were just doing your job. Trina doesn’t blame you for that. You sure? Read the room, officer. I mean, trina let you hold her hand while she kicked spencer in the teeth. I think you’re good. I’ve read the room and trina. She still cares about spencer. So? Spencer was trina’s friend, and he took esme’s side against her. And that she will never forgive. I’m on to you, you know. What nefarious thing have I done now? It’s what you didn’t do. You had every opportunity to give esme an ironclad alibi. And yet… what can I say? I’m an idiot. Oh, spencer cassadine, you are a lot of things, but an idiot — never. Which begs the question, whose side are you really on?
