Jack: [Sighs]

Steve: Jack, I thought we were meeting you at the church.

Jack: [Sighs] Yeah, yeah, I just–I had to get out of the house.

Steve: What happened?

Jack: Gwen called and offered her condolences, and jj… jj didn’t react well.

Kayla: What did he do?

Jack: I don’t really wanna go into it. I wanna talk about abigail.

Kayla: That’s what we’re here for.

Jack: Good, all right, so where are you at? Well, come on. Come on, I’m ready to hear it. Tell me what your latest thinking is.

Steve: Jack…

Jack: Please, steve, talk to me. Tell me who killed my daughter.

Anna: Ej, you were here the night that abigail was attacked. Did you see anyone skulking around, perhaps a british brunette with a very large chip on her shoulder?

Ej: [Clears throat] I, um– no, I was out most of the evening. Shortly after I got back, I heard chad screaming for help and found him holding abigail as she was slipping away.

Anna: Oh, that poor man. I can’t even imagine how awful that must’ve been, walking into his room, finding his wife bleeding to death on their very own bed. I was taking my antidepressant daily,

Lucas: Why would your mother’s kidnapping have anything to do with abigail’s murder?

Will: Because she reached out to me.

Lucas: Who did?

Will: Abigail. She was doing an investigative piece for “the spectator” and asked if we could compare notes.

Lucas: But why would she think you’d know anything?

Will: Because my mom was the victim, and since I’m a reporter too, she probably figured that I’d wanna find out the truth.

Lucas: Wait, so I still don’t get the connection between the murder and the kidnapping.

Will: Abigail called me the night before she died.

Lucas: So?

Will: So I’m sure I’m not the only person that she called. What if someone she tried to tap as a source wasn’t happy that she was looking into this?

Lucas: I guess they wouldn’t talk to her.

Will: And what if word got out to someone directly involved in mom’s kidnapping?

Lucas: I still don’t know where you’re going with this.

Will: Dad, whoever kidnapped mom obviously had a very personal reason to wanna shut abigail down. What if they did? What if they were so desperate to keep her from finding out the truth and putting it out there that they killed her?

Jack: You must have a lead, a suspect, something.

Steve: I’m sorry, jack. Nothing yet. You told me that you were gonna lend your expertise to the police, use your extensive experience as a pi to help them solve this case.

Steve: I am.

Jack: Really? Well, it looks like you’re just sitting here casually just drinking coffee while the rest of us are out there trying to actually find the animal who killed my daughter! Steve, I–you know, I’ve–

Steve: It’s okay. Hey, it’s okay.

Jack: I just–I need something, please. Give me something, something, anything, please.

Kayla: You know, I read that some jewelry was taken from abigail’s bedroom. I mean, don’t they think that maybe it could’ve been a robbery?

Steve: Well, rafe is trying to track down what was taken and see if that leads anywhere.

Jack: But you don’t think it will.

Steve: I think the jewelry is significant, but my instincts are telling me that robbery was not the motive.

Jack: Why not?

Steve: Because nothing else of value was taken from the house, and–

Jack: And? And what?

Steve: Never mind.

Jack: Oh, please, please, no. Steve, you got to tell me. Please?

Steve: The way she was attacked, it seems personal.

Kayla: You think that the person who did this knew her?

Steve: That is what the knife suggests to me.

Kayla: [Sighs]

Steve: It wasn’t random or circumstantial. I think she was targeted.

Jack: Why? If abigail wasn’t killed because she walked in on a robbery, then why? What reason would someone have to want to hurt her?

Ej: [Sighs]

Tony: [Sighs] I’m so sorry about abigail.


Anna: Mm.

[Sobs] I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry for what I said just now.

Chad: Ah, it’s fine–

Anna: No, it’s not. It was really insensitive. But I didn’t realize you were standing right there.

[Sniffles] How are thomas and charlotte doing?

Chad: They seem okay. I have a number for a therapist if they need to talk to someone. They’re at john and marlena’s right now, getting ready for the funeral.

Tony: They’re coming?

Chad: Yeah. Marlena thinks that it’ll be a good idea mainly because they’re… they’re having a hard time accepting the fact that their mom’s gone. So, um… you know, it’ll just–marlena thinks that it’ll help with the grieving process for them to be able to say goodbye.

Jj: Damn, I sh–I shouldn’t have said that about gwen.

Jennifer: Oh, no, jj, it’s okay. Emotions are running very high right now–

Jj: Which is why I should’ve kept my mouth shut. I didn’t mean to upset dad.

Jennifer: I know, I know, I know.

Jj: It’s just, she called. It set me off. She was horrible to abigail.

Jennifer: Yes, she was.

Jj: Well, at least she’s in a cell now.

Jennifer: Yes, and that is absolutely where she deserves to be. But it makes your father very sad because he really wanted abigail and gwen to make peace so he could have both his daughters in his life, and now…

Jj: He still has me. You both do.

Jennifer: I know. Of course we do, and thank god for that. Anyway, after gwen’s wedding went all to hell, I told your father that I would support whatever he decided he wanted his relationship with gwen to be, but that I would never trust her again.

Jj: And you still feel that way?

Jennifer: Well, yes. I would support your father no matter what.

Jj: I swear, mom, you are a saint.

Jennifer: Oh, no.

[Chuckles] Hardly. But I do try to put myself in your dad’s shoes, and he loves gwen, and when you’re a parent, nothing your child does will ever make you stop loving them.

Jj: I’ve come close a couple times.

Jennifer: Oh, no, no, no, no. Parents may feel anger or disappointment, but that doesn’t change the love. That is forever. When your child is born, they take a piece of your heart. Everything that they feel– pain, joy, love– you feel that right along with them… and when you lose your child, you lose that piece of your heart.

Kate: Jack, I’m so sorry about abigail.

Jack: Thank you, thank you.

Kate: You know that chad is like a son to me, and abigail made him so happy. She was a loving mother and such a loving wife. She’s a wonderful person. I admired her. My condolences to both of you as well.

Steve: Thanks.

Kayla: Thanks, kate.

Kate: So I just couldn’t help overhearing, as I was walking up, you are investigating what happened?

Steve: Well, not officially, just helping out.

Kate: Mm-hmm. Your brother or the police?

Steve: Both.

Kayla: Steve, and roman, and all of us are determined to find out who did this and get justice for abigail.

Kate: Of course. I’m just a little surprised that you’re discussing it today.

Steve: Well, everyone is anxious to get answers. I’m sure you understand, given what you’re going through with your son, with philip.

Kate: Yes–well, yes, but I guess I just assumed that you would be focusing on celebrating abigail’s life, honoring what she meant to all of us, being grateful for all of the people who understand what a tremendous loss it is, and sharing in our grief.

Jack: You’re right. I should be going. I’ll see you all at the service.

Kayla: We’ll see you there.

Lucas: If you think the kidnapper and the murderer are the same person, that means ej killed abigail.

Will: Wasn’t ej’s conviction overturned?

Lucas: Doesn’t mean he’s innocent.

Will: Didn’t the devil plant evidence on his computer?

Lucas: Listen, he framed an already guilty man, okay? This whole thing points at ej. It does; he’s ruthless, he’s heartless. He wanted your mother to pay.

Will: I know you hate him, but do you really think ej would stab abigail to death? Abigail was his family.

Lucas: You’re right. You’re right, okay? Maybe that’s a little bit too far, even for him, even if he was in a dark place, and his back was against the wall.

[Sighs] You know what? We should get to the church. Why don’t I give you a lift?

Will: No, I’m, uh, I’m meeting sonny. I’ll see you over there.

Lucas: You sure?

Will: Yeah.

Lucas: Okay. I love you.

Will: Love you.

Lucas: Hey, listen, about your theory about ej, son, I wouldn’t tell chad about this.

Will: Dad, the man’s about to bury his wife. Do you really think I would just tell him that maybe his brother was the one who killed her?

[Dramatic music]

Chad: Will’s in town, so he and sonny drove me over here so I could get dressed for the funeral.

Ej: We have a little time, so why don’t you visit with tony and anna, then I’ll have harold press your suit.

Chad: I’m sure that it’s fine.

Ej: I was gonna have him freshen up some of my wardrobe anyway, so why don’t I get him to bring your suit to my room, and–

Chad: Stop, all right? I know what you’re doing, and I appreciate it, but I have to go in the room at some point.

Anna: But it doesn’t have to be today.

Chad: I’ll be all right. I can do it.

We really had our hands full with our two-year-old.

Kayla: I don’t know why I agreed to do this. I should’ve told jack to find somebody else–find somebody who can write.

Steve: [Sighs] Baby, you’re overthinking it.

Kayla: No, I don’t want to disappoint anybody.

[Sighs] Especially abigail, not the way I disappointed her that night.

Steve: Sweetness, please.

Kayla: I know that I did everything in my power to save her. But I couldn’t! I mean, the least I could do is let everybody know how much she means to me. I just don’t know how.

[Chuckles] What are you doing?

Steve: Telling you how much you mean to me. You understood that, right?

Kayla: You said you loved me.

Steve: I didn’t say anything. But I did speak from my heart. I expressed myself. That’s all you need to do. Nobody knows how to do that better than you.

Jack: Where’s your mother?

Jj: She’s upstairs trying to find the necklace abigail gave her.

Jack: I should help her find that.

Jj: Hey, dad, I’m sorry about what I said before. I shouldn’t have blown up like that, especially today.

Jack: I shouldn’t have stormed out.

Jj: Well, you’re angry. I’m angry too.

Jack: You are certainly entitled to your feelings about gwen after everything that she did to this family.

Jj: I’m not angry about gwen. I’m angry about abigail.

[Sniffles] Why did this happen?

Jack: I don’t know.

Jj: I miss her. I miss her.

Jack: Me too, son. Me too.

Anna: Jennifer wrote such a lovely tribute to abigail.

Ej: Mm, she really did.

Tony: But how sad for a mother to have to write her own daughter’s obituary.

Anna: Oh. It’s an unimaginable loss, mostly, of course, for abigail’s immediate family, but for all of us really. I honestly don’t know how we’re all supposed to go on without her.

[Soft music]

My asthma felt anything but normal.

Steve: All done?

Kayla: I think so. Thank you. You really helped me.

Steve: Good, I’m glad.

Kayla: You know, when you signed to me, I realized that I was limiting myself, thinking there was only one way to express my feelings about abigail. But that’s not true. There are words that I can use that say how much I love her without writing a eulogy.

Steve: What do you mean?

Kayla: I have been a part of so many ceremonies where somebody read something beautiful, and moving, and so suited to the occasion, but they didn’t write it themselves.

Steve: You mean like a song?

Kayla: Or maybe a poem. I remember abigail telling me that she loved E.E. Cummings. So I thought who better to help me express how much I loved her. You wanna hear it?

Steve: Yeah.

Kayla: “I carry your heart with me. I carry it in my heart. I am never without it. Anywhere I go, you go, my dear, and whatever is done by only me, is your doing, my darling.”

Jennifer: [Crying]


[Soft music]

Kayla: “I fear no fate…” “for you are my fate, my sweet.”

“I want no world, for beautiful you are my world, my true… and it’s you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you.”

Tony: [Sighs]

Kayla: “Here is the deepest secret nobody knows. Here is the root of the root, and the bud of the bud, and the sky of the sky of a tree called life, which grows higher than a soul can hope or a mind can hide, and this is the wonder that’s keeping the stars apart. I carry your heart.”

“I carry it in my heart.”
