Chad: Uh, thanks r tataking the kids to ice cream, jennifer. How do they y seem? Have they asked about the funeral at all? Ah, I think it’s good for them to be there too. I’m fine. I just need a little bit, uh, uh, time to myself. But if thomas or charlotte asks for me, I’ll come over right away. Okay. Thank you.
Clyde: I don’t mean to be rude, commissioner, but my girl and I are having a private conversation here.
Nancy: I just asked clyde to move in with me.
Rafe: Well, I’m sorry to interrupt. Nancy, I need to know where you got that bracelet.
Nancy: Oh, isn’t it gorgeous?
Rafe: Yeah, so did you, uh, buy it in a store or online?
Nancy: Oh, it was a gift.
Rafe: From whom?
Marlena: [Scoffs] You want me to be the baby’s godmother? Are you sure?
Ben: Absolutely. I mean, unless it would it be weird because you’re my psychiatrist? But I mean, I think of you as family at this point.
Marlena: Well, I do too. Do we think that ciara would be on board?
Ben: I mean, why wouldn’t she be?
Marlena: Well, for one thing, I did–I did try to steal your baby.
Jan: I don’t know what you’re talking about, evan. Since when do you have a baby?
Evan: Since you gave birth to him. Little shawn christian? Obviously, you named him after me. Christian’s my real name.
Jan: I named him after our lord and savior. Look, I don’t know if you’re having some mental breakdown or what, but you are definitely confused.
Evan: Actually, I’m crystal clear on what happened. We crossed paths in the prison infirmary. You said you were having the worst christmas ever. I asked if there was anything I could do. Turns out, you asked me to do you.
Jan: Beg your pardon?
Evan: You seduced me, hoping I’d knock you up.
Jan: Why would I wanna get pregnant by a homicidal maniac?
Evan: [Laughs] So you could pass off the kid as shawn brady’s, which is exactly what you’re doing.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Ben: You didn’t try to take our baby, dr. Evans. The devil did.
Marlena: Yeah, still. I can see how ciara might feel uncomfortable with me being bo’s godmother.
Ben: Trust me, ciara loves the idea. She’s the one that pointed out that you went up against satan, and you beat him twice. I don’t think there’s another person in this world who could be a better spiritual mentor for our son.
Marlena: Well, if you’re both sure–
Ben: We’re sure.
Marlena: [Laughs] Oh, I would love to. I would love to, thank you.
Shawn: Well, I’m headed to get jan a buddy’s burger. Would you do me a favor? Would you–would you keep her company while I’m gone?
Ciara: Ugh, shawn, does she really need a babysitter?
Shawn: She’s just a little bit bummed out today.
Ciara: Is it because of the baby?
Shawn: No, no, he’s actually–he’s good. I mean, he’s gained weight. We got to hold him.
Shawn: He’s great.
Ciara: Good, good. Well, that’s good news, right?
Shawn: Well, for jan, it’s–it’s bittersweet. I mean, of course, she’s happy that he’s okay, but she– she knows as soon as he gets released, that she’s gonna have to go back to prison.
Ciara: Mm-hmm, right, prison. Exactly where she belongs.
Shawn: I know, I know, but she’s barely had any time to bond with the little guy. And come on, imagine–imagine you having to leave little bo after, like, what, two weeks.
Ciara: Well, you know what? I don’t have to imagine that, shawn, because I am not a total psycho.
Shawn: Our son does not know jan’s history. All he knows is that she is his mother, and that he needs her.
Ciara: Okay, I-I just– I don’t know if I like this.
Shawn: Like what?
Ciara: You being all concerned about jan.
Shawn: I’m concerned about my son.
Shawn: If there’s something that you wanna say, ciara, why don’t you just say it?
Ciara: Fine. Shawn, are you or are you not starting to have feelings for jan?
Jan: There’s no denying that we shared a hot and steamy encounter when I first arrived at statesville. And while it certainly was an enthusiastic greeting, you are mistaken in thinking you planted your seed inside me.
Evan: That’s a strange way of putting it.
Jan: I’m trying to keep it classy.
Evan: We hooked up in a prison infirmary. It’s a little late for classy. Why don’t you be honest instead?
Jan: I am. I have no idea why you think you’re the father of my child.
Evan: Because my father told me the truth.
Jan: And who’s your father?
Evan: Some people call him milo harp.
Jan: Never heard of him.
Evan: Ever heard of orpheus?
Jan: The notorious criminal is your dad? Why didn’t he tell me?
Evan: There’s a lot he keeps close to the vest. He didn’t tell me until recently that you had my baby, and he switched the paternity test for you.
Jan: Jeez, you really can’t trust anyone in prison. So what, you two are in cahoots now?
Evan: He doesn’t know I’m calling you. But jan, the jig is up.
Jan: What does that mean?
Evan: It means I know shawn christian is my son. And I want you to bring him to me right now. My asthma felt anything but normal.
Chad: Still smells like your perfume.
Leo: Ugh, these drinks were not cheap. Of course, I’m worth it.
Will: Well, this is interesting.
Leo: What? I’m not allowed to enjoy a happy hour?
Will: Sure, you are, but last I heard, you had no job, no sugar daddy, and no other source of income.
Will: So where did you get all that cash?
Rafe: Who gave you the bracelet?
Nancy: Uh, chloe.
Rafe: Really? What was the occasion?
Nancy: Uh, n-no occasion. She just saw it and thought of me.
Rafe: And when was that that she, uh, thought of you?
Nancy: A couple weeks ago.
Rafe: I see.
Clyde: Hey, what’s with all the questions?
Rafe: Oh, are you looking for a gift for your bride? Ah, I heard that you and nicole just tied the knot. Congratulations.
Rafe: Thanks. But my interest in your bracelet is related to a police investigation.
Nancy: What do you mean?
Rafe: I mean I have reason to believe that the piece of jewelry you’re wearing is stolen.
Shawn: Oh, my god, ciara, how could you even ask me that? I mean, of course, I don’t have feelings for jan. No, I am in love with my wife, and her name is belle. All right, I love her, and I’m never gonna stop loving her.
Ciara: Okay, good, thank god.
Shawn: Yeah, but jan–jan is the mother of my son. So whether I like it or not, she and I are permanently connected.
Ciara: Yes, and she is very willing to exploit that connection. Shawn, I told you so many times you have to watch out for her.
Shawn: Yes, I know, because she’s devious, she’s manipulative, and she is violent. Do you think I don’t remember? You think that I just completely forgot?
Ciara: Well, you’re not really acting like it.
Shawn: Just because–because there is a baby involved, and that baby is my son.
Ciara: Yes, and that baby only exists because she teamed up with the devil to trick you into sleeping with her.
Shawn: Okay, and you’re reminding me of that, why? What–what–what–what is the point, ciara, huh?
Ciara: Shawn, the point is, I’m just–I’m worried. I’m worried that you are gonna get caught up in all the good that comes with having this miraculous bundle of joy, and you will forget that jan’s reason for all this is to try to replace belle.
Shawn: Look, ciara, I–
Ciara: Look, shawn, I’m just saying this lunatic has tried to come between you guys so many times, and now, this is the closest she’s ever been. You don’t think she’s gonna stop, do you? Shawn, this is the woman who tried to kill your wife multiple times because she’s convinced that she belongs with you.
Shawn: Look, there is no doubt that jan’s feelings for me are–are–they’re sick and they’re twisted. But the feelings that she has for our son, they’re pure, and they are sincere. I mean, she–this baby means the world to her.
Ciara: Good, good. So when she serves her time, she can see him, but right now, she needs to go back to statesville.
Shawn: Look, as a cop and as a citizen, look, ciara, I cannot agree with you more. But as a father, I know– I know how heartbreaking that’s going to be for her. And it’s not gonna be good for the baby, either, to not have its mother.
Jan: Evan, prison is no place for a baby.
Evan: I’m his father. I wanna see him, damn it!
Jan: And how would I explain this little visit to shawn?
Evan: Just tell him the truth–the kid isn’t his.
Jan: Oh, right, great idea. Except for the fact that it would completely ruin my life!
Evan: Well, I don’t care how you swing it, but I wanna meet my little boy, and if you don’t get him here in the next 30 minutes, my next call is to detective brady.
When moderate to severe
ulcerative colitis persists…
Jan: [Sighs] Relax, jan. There’s a solution to every problem. You just have to find it. Maybe if I take shawn christian to visit evan, I could reason with him and convince him to keep his stupid mouth shut.
Evan: That’s right, little man, I’m your dad.
Jan: Okay, we need to wrap this up. I need to get back to the hospital before anyone realizes that I’m gone.
Evan: Fine. I love you, sweet boy.
Jan: Okay, I’ve done my part. Now it is time for you to do yours.
Evan: Which is?
Jan: No one can know that shawn christian is your son. That has to stay strictly between us.
Evan: I’m sorry, jan, but I just can’t do that.
Jan: Why not?
Evan: Because I love you, and I want the whole world to know it! That’s why I got this tattoo!
Jan: Is that supposed to be me?
Evan: I’m gonna get our son on my other pec.
Jan: Evan, you can’t!
Evan: Well, that way, I’ll have my family with me wherever I go. And that’s what I want us to be, a family.
Jan: Oh, no.
Evan: You’re not just over my heart, jan. You’re in it. So will you please do the honor of becoming mrs. Jan spears-frears?
Jan: Ugh. There is no way I am going to become mrs. Jan spears-frears. I am destined to become jan brady. But if shawn finds out the baby isn’t his, I’ll lose him forever. And I can’t let that happen.
Ciara: Can’t let what happen?
Ben: Thank you. Mmm.
[Both chuckle] Dr. Evans, do you remember when you came to bayview to evaluate me? See if I was fit to return to society?
Marlena: Of course.
Ben: And you took some flak for it.
Marlena: Not as much as you took.
Ben: Yeah. That’s because nobody wanted me in salem, for good reason. Chad gave me a handful of cash. He drove me to the edge of town and told me to keep going. I was so lost, overwhelmed. But then that’s where I found ciara after she crashed her bike. That is when my life began again. I still can’t believe how lucky I am, really.
Marlena: It wasn’t luck, ben. You have worked very hard to prove that you deserved a second chance.
Ben: That chance wouldn’t even be possible without you. Dr. Evans, your guidance, your support, that is what made me into the man I am today. I have a job. I have a wife. I have a baby. I owe everything to you. And I don’t know if I am ever gonna be able to repay you.
Will: So where’d you get all the money?
Leo: You really need to get a life, wilhelmina. Your obsession with me is disturbing.
Will: Hmm. It’s possible that you went back to prostitution. But who would pay for a washed-up, old twink?
Leo: Ah! Am I washed up? Take that back, you bitch!
Will: Hmm, I hit a nerve?
Leo: You’d best walk away before my last cosmo ends up all over that cheap suit. Why are you so dressed up anyway? You look like you’re going to a funeral.
Will: Just came from one. We buried my cousin abigail today.
Leo: I didn’t realize.
Will: Yeah, like you give a damn.
Chad: I have to get out of here.
Nancy: There must be some mistake. My daughter would never steal a bracelet.
Rafe: Well, maybe she bought it from someone who stole it.
Nancy: Chloe would not get me a gift from a disreputable source. That’s not something you do to someone you care about.
Rafe: Hmm. Did she tell you where she got it?
Nancy: I didn’t ask.
Rafe: Well, it’s a pretty distinctive piece, and it matches the photos I got from chad.
Nancy: Chad dimera?
Rafe: Yeah. As you know, his wife was murdered recently.
Nancy: I know. I was at the funeral earlier. It’s a terrible tragedy. But what does that have to do with my bracelet?
Rafe: Well, we have reason to believe that the person who murdered abigail also stole some of her jewelry, including that bracelet.
Clyde: You gotta be kidding me.
Rafe: No. I’m gonna call chloe and have her meet us down at the station.
Clyde: Uh, no need to do that. Chloe didn’t give her the bracelet. I did. My asthma felt anything but normal.
Rafe: Then why did you say that chloe gave you the bracelet?
Clyde: That’s my fault.
Nancy: Clyde’s a very private person.
Rafe: I don’t understand.
Clyde: Of course you don’T. You’re a cop. But I’m a parolee. Even though I bought that bracelet with money I made from a legit job, folks are gonna doubt that ’cause of my past. I didn’t want nancy to deal with all the suspicion and snide comments, so I told her to say that she’d gotten it from somebody else. Now, after all, what I do with my money is my business, nobody else’S.
Rafe: Hmm. Except when it ties you to a murder case.
Nancy: No, it doesn’t tie clyde to anything! He would never kill abigail! Would you?
Clyde: Of course not.
Rafe: Then where’d you get the bracelet?
Clyde: I bought it off a guy.
Rafe: What guy?
Leo: Wait, chad, chad, wait.
Marlena: Ben. You don’t have to repay me.
Ben: I just–I don’t think I could ever thank you enough.
Marlena: You know what? Just seeing you happy, in love, that’s all the thanks I need. I’m just so–ah! I’m so proud of you.
Ben: Thank you, thank you. And, um, I’m very serious about keeping up with our sessions. No matter where in the hell we are in the world, I wanna continue working on myself. I wanna keep making progress.
Marlena: I’m so glad to hear that. And I will always be here for virtual visits whenever you need me.
Ben: Thank you. I appreciate that. It’s definitely not gonna be the same as being in the room with you, though. I’m gonna miss you a lot.
Marlena: I’m gonna miss you, too, ben.
Will: Oh, I’m sorry. Am I interrupting?
Marlena: No, no, not at all. I was just talking with ben. He shared some–some very good news.
Ciara: What were you saying when I walked in?
Jan: I was, um, I was just saying that I might have to go back to prison soon. And I’m worried that my son will forget me. And I can’t let that happen.
Ciara: [Sighs] Right, well, shawn understands the importance of a son having a relationship with his mother, so I wouldn’t really stress about it if I were you.
Jan: You’re right. Your brother is a saint. He’s taken such good care of me.
Ciara: Yeah, I actually just ran into him when he was out to go get some food for you. He told me that I should keep you company.
Jan: You see that? He’s so thoughtful. Do you also wanna see your nephew?
Ciara: Yes, I would love to, um, to say goodbye, actually.
Ciara: Yeah, well, ben and i are gonna go sail around the world with little bo. Yeah, we leave tomorrow.
Jan: How marvelous. I assume you’re–you’re taking the boat that your mom gave you?
Ciara: What, you know about that?
Jan: Your delightful grandmother julie came by yesterday to visit with the baby, and she mentioned it. The “fancy face V.”
Ciara: Hmm. Wow. Actually, it’s called “living in cin.”
Jan: That’s an odd name.
Ciara: Yeah, yeah. It’s spelled c-I-N. It’s short for ciara and ben.
Jan: Oh, like bennifer.
Jan: You must be super excited.
Ciara: Yeah, we are, we are. Uh, it’s gonna be really nice to get away for a little bit and spend some quality time as a family, you know?
Jan: That does sound perfect. My a1c stayed here,
Clyde: Some guy came in here a couple of weeks ago, paying in cash. And I admired his money clip.
Rafe: Well, interesting. A money clip was one of the things that were stolen from the crime scene. Can you describe it?
Clyde: Expensive. When I admired it, he asked me if I wanted to buy it. I said no. Then he told me he had some other items for sale.
Rafe: And that didn’t seem at all suspicious to you?
Clyde: Well, he said his aunt had passed away, and he was just trying to liquidate her assets, per her wishes.
Rafe: Huh. In a pub?
Clyde: Well, maybe it wasn’t the most appropriate venue, but he was just trying to do right by his kin. I didn’t see any harm in looking at what else he had to offer.
Rafe: Uh-huh. So he showed you that bracelet, which you bought for nancy?
Clyde: Yeah. I thought it would make a nice gift. I had no idea it was stolen.
Nancy: Well, that explains it. I mean, he wa–he was tricked. He was victimized by a crook!
Rafe: Well, why don’t you tell me more about this guy you supposedly met? What was his name?
Clyde: I don’t know. I didn’t ask him.
Rafe: Uh-huh. Can you describe him?
Clyde: He was, um, average-looking.
Rafe: Can you be more specific?
Clyde: I wish I could, but i was looking at the bracelet, not him, you know. And as I told you before, I paid in cash, so–
Rafe: So there’s no way you can prove that he actually exists.
Nancy: Stop it! You know, this is exactly what clyde was talking about! People being suspicious when he’s done nothing wrong! Rafe, you have to see that he’s telling the truth. You just have to know that.
Rafe: Well, all I know is that he was in possession of an item that was stolen from a woman who was recently murdered. And that’s all I need to place him under arrest.
Chad: What do you want?
Leo: I-I just heard that abigail’s funeral was today, and I wanted to offer my condolences.
Chad: Wait, you? You hated abigail. You blamed her for breaking up you and craig.
Leo: Well, I-I didn’t appreciate the way the two of you worked together to torpedo my relationship.
Chad: Didn’t appreciate? You–you co–you considered us enemies! You vowed to get your revenge!
Leo: Well, I’m–I’m done with all that. I was just telling someone the other day that it weighs on me a lot, what I did to you and abigail.
Chad: Wait, in–in that interview you gave with that– with that trashy magazine? The one where you told all those disgusting lies about how I wanted to cheat on my wife with you? You came after my wife! Okay, the woman that I love!
Leo: You have no idea how much I regret that.
Chad: Did you know that people would–would–would come up to her and tell her how–that they thought that she was clueless? She was being harassed in horton town square! Now–now, abby, as always, she handled it with grace and dignity. Me? I wanted to sue you. Hell, I wanted killed you.
Leo: Look, I will admit that when my one chance at happiness was gleefully and deliberately destroyed, I was angry at a lot of people, and–and that included abigail. But I did not want her to die. I am really sorry that she’s gone. I hope you believe that.
Chad: Sure. Yeah, whatever you say.
Leo: I mean it, chad. I am so sorry for you and your children. I-I can’t even begin to imagine what they’re going through, losing their mom at such a young age. Thomas, he’s such a sweet boy.
Chad: How do you know my son?
Will: So should I call you captain weston now, or…?
Ben: You know, let’s give it a month. If I don’t sink the ship by then, maybe we’ll consider it.
Will: All right, yeah. You know, I hope, um, sleeping in tight quarters doesn’t remind you of our time as cellmates.
Ben: Well, thankfully, ciara doesn’t snore like you did.
Will: I don’t snore.
Ben: Like a chainsaw. I went to the commissary to get earplugs. It didn’t even work.
Will: Excuse–re–remind why I was your best man again?
Ben: I think you took pity on me because I had no friends.
Will: Yeah, exactly, so maybe keep that in mind next time you wanna spread a vicious rumor about me.
Ben: Oh, my god, all right. Well, you know what I do remember? Being floored the first time you said you considered me being a friend after everything I tried to do to you.
Will: Well, I mean, like I said then, that’s water under the bridge. Now we’re good. You know that.
Ben: Yeah, all right.
Will: And, I mean, look how far you’ve come. You–you have a son. And I am really glad I got to meet the little guy before you took off.
Ben: Me, too, man. You know, there is something we could use, though, before we take off on our trip.
Will: Oh, name it.
When you agreed to stand up for me, I told you that when ciara and i eventually decided to have kids, we’re coming to you and sonny for the parenting tips. So lay ’em on me.
Will: Well, you figured out how to get that thing on. That’s, uh, that’s, like, genius level.
Ben: This wasn’t easy. But, uh, maybe–maybe something I can use when he’s not sleeping 18 hours a day, you know?
Will: Okay. Um, well, kids love stories. So you should tell bo all about his cousin arianna. And when you come back, they can be friends like us.
Ben: It’s a deal.
Will: I don’t snore.
Ciara: You seem a little nervous, jan.
Jan: No, just hungry.
Shawn: I hope so ’cause I got you a double chili cheeseburger. Here you go. Hey, sis.
Shawn: Is, uh, everything okay?
Jan: Ciara was just, uh, telling me about her plans to travel the world. Little shawn is gonna miss his auntie, uncle, and cousin so much.
Ciara: Yeah, well, we’re gonna miss him too.
Jan: Shawn, why don’t you, uh, take ciara to go see the baby?
Ciara: Oh, no, that’s fine. I can just sneak a peek on my way out.
Jan: But if your brother takes you, then you can actually hold him.
Ciara: Wait, that’s allowed?
Shawn: Yeah, I mean, I-i don’t see why it’s not, yeah.
Ciara: Okay. Yeah, I would love that.
Shawn: Uh, you gonna be okay on your own?
Jan: Yeah, I’m about to wolf this entire thing down, so it’s probably best if I don’t have an audience. It’s gonna get ugly.
Shawn: All right, um, all right, we’ll be back in a little bit then, okay?
Jan: Give him a kiss from mommy.
Shawn: Will do.
Jan: Sorry to hijack your plans, ciara, but I need this getaway way more than you do. The only people who will be living in cin will be me, shawn, and our baby. I was taking my antidepressant daily,
Jan: How’d it go?
Ciara: My nephew is absolutely adorable. Um, please don’t forget to send me those pictures that you took of me holding him.
[Phone chirps] Done.
Shawn: There it goes.
Ciara: Thank you.
Jan: He looks so much like your brother, right?
Ciara: Um, actually, I don’t–I don’t see it.
Jan: Of course he does. The chin, the nose.
Ciara: Okay. Um, I actually have to get going, so.
Shawn: Uh, I’ll walk you out.
Ciara: Yeah. Bye, jan.
Jan: Bon voyage.
Ben: Well, I should probably get the little dude home. We got a big day tomorrow. First, his christening. And then our big sendoff from the docks.
Will: Well, um, good luck with everything.
Ben: Thanks, man. Dr. Evans, we’ll be seeing you tomorrow, yeah? St. Luke’s?
Marlena: I can’t wait.
Ben: Oh, me either. All right.
Leo: Well, obviously, I-i don’t know your son personally. Thomas and I have never met. Uh, but gwen–gwen told me stories from when she was your nanny. He seems like a sweet boy.
Chad: Yeah. He’s a lot like his mom.
Leo: Do the police have any leads on abigail’s killer?
Chad: Not yet.
Leo: Well, I hope they bring whoever did this to justice. Again, I am sorry for your loss.
Nancy: Rafe, you can’t be serious! Clyde is innocent!
Rafe: Well, then he should have nothing to worry about.
Clyde: Hey, will you hold the dog and pony show till we get outside? It wouldn’t be so great for roman if his patrons saw me hauled off in cuffs, you know?
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, fine. Nancy, I’m gonna need the bracelet.
Nancy: This–this just–ah, this just can’t be happening!
Clyde: I am really sorry i got you mixed up in this thing, but I swear to you, I did not kill abigail.
Nancy: Oh, of course not, but tell me what I can do.
Clyde: Oh, don’t you worry about a thing. I’m gonna have this taken care of in no time.
Nancy: Okay, but call me if you need me.
Clyde: Thank you, sweetheart. I will.
Evan: Jan should’ve been here by now. Where the hell is she?
Shawn: I have to show you these pictures that I just too– jan? Where’d she go?
Jan: Mommy has exciting news, shawn christian. We’re going on an adventure far, far away from salem.
Ciara: I can’t believe this is our last night in salem.
Ben: I know. That’s why I figured we’d go with the chinese, because who knows when we’re gonna be able to get general tso’s again?
Ciara: Mm. Ben, are we crazy for doing this? Picking up our entire life and, like, leaving with a newborn?
Ben: This is what you wanted to do, right?
Ciara: Yeah, no. This is what I wanted. But, like, what if we’re just being way too impulsive, and this is gonna end up to be a really bad decision?
Ben: Hmm. Um, there’s only one way to find out.
Ben: [Laughs] Oh.
Ciara: Open it. What does it say?
Ben: Tomorrow, the adventure of a lifetime begins.
Ciara: Huh. Well, I guess I can’t really argue with that one.
Will: It really is crazy that ben and I are friends.
Marlena: Well, your friendship is a testament to how people can change.
Will: Yeah. Well, not all people. I ran into leo stark earlier.
Marlena: Yeah? Did you two have words?
Will: It wasn’t too bad, but, um, I get a distinct feeling he’s up to something.
Nancy: Get out of my way!
Leo: Whoa, what’s the rush, nance? Gabi chic having a sale on cheap wigs?
Nancy: No, you little creep! My boyfriend just got arrested!
Rafe: I’ll be back to take your statement.
Clyde: Yeah, looking forward to it.
Chad: Rafe, I got your, uh, I got your call. Is this about abby’s case?
Rafe: Yeah, good news. I think we got our first real break.
