Eric: We should try to find sami.

Roman: You do that. I’ll stay in case she comes back here.

Eric: Okay, good idea. I can see her deciding she needs you now.

Roman: Yeah, okay.

[Pensive music]

What are you doing here? Shouldn’t you be at the police station with lucas?

Lucas: You have to listen to me. I would never take a knife and stab my own niece!

Chad: Yeah? Then what is that?

Sami: Ej, I really need to talk to you.

Ej: [Sighs] What are you doing?

Belle: I can’t let her find me in here.

Sami: Come on, ej. I know you’re in there.

Ej: What are you doing here, samantha? Why aren’t you with lucas?

Sami: Well, I would’ve been, except…

[Scoffs] Ah, look at what we have here. Who does this belong to?

Allie: I was so happy today. I started to cry when dad was reading the vows that he wrote. I thought, wow, imagine having two parents happy at the same time. Mom looked so beautiful till she found out– till we all found out–that dad was the one who kidnapped her.


Will: Yeah, it was quite the wedding.

Allie: Non-wedding. Will… chad was wrong, wasn’t he? Not about the kidnapping, but dad didn’t kill abigail. That couldn’t have happened. That just can’t be true, right? Will.

Chad: Tell me, how did you get this cut on your hand?

Lucas: I don’t know!

Chad: Well, that seems like a pretty deep cut to remember that kind of pain.

Lucas: Ow! I told you I was–

Chad: What? What, drunk? You were blackout drunk, huh? Okay, let me see if I can help you recover your memory, lucas. Huh? Were you holding a knife too tight when you stabbed my wife to death?

Lucas: You don’t understand!

Chad: While she was trying to fight for her life, huh?

Lucas: You better listen to me!

Chad: I am listening to you, but you wouldn’t tell me what I need to know!

Rafe: Damn it, chad! Not again!

Chad: You don’t know what he did!

Rafe: I do know what he did! I know. I know because johnny told me he kidnapped sami.

Chad: Yeah, he admitted to that, but he hasn’t admitted to murdering my wife. But he will!

Rafe: Chad.

Roman: So don’t tell me they let lucas go already.

Kate: Um, no, he’s– he’s at the station still.

Roman: Then why did you come back?

Chad: Rafe’s gonna ask me how I put the pieces together to come up with lucas.

Kate: [Scoffs] So you’re going to tell him that I told lucas that abigail knew, right?

Chad: You better get roman ready for what’s coming.

Kate: Mm-hmm. I need to talk to you about lucas.

Eric: Sami, will you let me know you’re all right? If you don’t want to talk, just text me that you’re okay.

[Hangs up]

Nicole: Eric?

Eric: Nicole.

Nicole: What are you doing here? Hang on, are you okay? Sami just got married, and yet, you seem pretty sad. Why aren’t you at the reception?

Eric: Because there won’t be a reception. Because there wasn’t a wedding.

Sami: So whose is this?

Ej: None of your business, mrs. Horton.

Sami: Never mind. I already know whose it is.


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

[Soft orchestration]

Allie: Will, this is where you’re supposed to say, “of course not. Dad could never kill anybody,” unless you think he could.

Will: No, I don’t think he could ever kill anyone unless he was drunk.

Allie: Okay, well, he’s sober and he has been for– will, no.

Will: Yeah, he had a slip. He told me this morning. He also told me that after he came to, he called his sponsor. And he’s been going to meetings.

Allie: Okay, well, when was this slip? I mean, it could’ve been months ago. He’s been under so much stress, like with– it wasn’t months ago, was it?

Will: No.

Lucas: I had a slip. I mean, I don’t even know if that’s what you call it these days, you know, when you’re blacked out drunk. But when I came to, my hand– my hand was a mess.

Will: I’m sorry.

Lucas: Yeah, me too.

Will: You’ve been sober for so long. Do you know why this happened? The only reason he told me is because I saw this cut on his hand, and it was recent, ’cause he still had the bandage. And I asked how it happened, and he said he didn’t remember.

Allie: Because he was drunk.

Will: Yeah.

Allie: And when he said that he “came to,” he was blacked out? And you think that he got the cut the same night that abigail died?

Will: [Sighs]

Rafe: You– you have to get out of here. You have to let me do my job. Now you can really screw things up here. Do you want to screw things up? I don’t think you want to screw things up, do you?

Chad: No, I don’T.

Rafe: Then let’s go. Don’t go anywhere. You need to tell me what the hell is going on here. Now listen, johnny told me that lucas admitted to kidnapping sami, but that does not make him a murderer. He had no earthly reason to kill abigail.

Chad: Yes, he did. Abigail knew. Abigail knew what lucas had done.

Sami: I know you’re in there, nicole.

Ej: Samantha, this is none of your business!

Sami: Get off me, ej! Come out, you cheating whore! Let go of me!

When moderate to severe

ulcerative colitis persists…

Nicole: I can’t believe it. Chad accused lucas of killing abigail?

Eric: At the top of his lungs, in front of the entire church.

Nicole: Oh, poor guy. Chad, I mean. Rafe told me that he had to tell chad he had to let clyde weston go.

Eric: Yeah, well, chad mentioned that. Actually, he screamed it at lucas. But is rafe for sure? Because given weston’s history, we know he’s capable of paying to get an alibi.

Nicole: There’s timestamped evidence accounting for clyde weston’s whereabouts. And are you ready for this?

Eric: What?

Nicole: At the time of the murder, clyde weston was fishing.

Eric: Fishing? With lil’ opie and barney? I mean, sorry, this is not the time to be funny.

Nicole: No, no. I guess when chad found out it wasn’t clyde, he lost it.

Eric: Yeah, you could say that.

Nicole: But still, I mean, why in god’s name would he think it was lucas? Lucas loved abigail, and she was jennifer’s daughter. I…

Eric: Unfortunately, there’s more. It turns out that abigail was aware that lucas is the one who, um–

Nicole: Lucas was the one who what?

[Scoffs] What could lucas have done that he’d kill abigail to cover it up?

Eric: Lucas admitted he was the one who kidnapped sami.

Nicole: Oh.

Will: I don’t know exactly when dad got drunk. He just told me he felt guilty about mom.

Allie: You knew he kidnapped her and you still stood up for him at the wedding?

Will: No, obviously dad didn’t tell me he kidnapped mom. He had some sob story about how he should’ve stopped her from skiing, and because he didn’t, she broke her leg, and then, months after the fact, that that drove him to drink.

Allie: Great, so he’s lying again, too.

Will: I think I kind of knew it was a lie when he said it. You know, I could feel something was really wrong.

Allie: That it was his cover story. I mean, I can understand why he wouldn’t want to share with you that he kidnapped our mother.

Will: Yeah, it’s clearly eating him up.

Allie: I hope so. I mean, did you see what he put her through?

Will: I think the part he dreaded the most, even more than going to prison, was that mom might know that he did it, right? And so, when he found out that abigail knew that he did it…

Allie: He killed her to keep her quiet. No, no, I don’t believe that even dead drunk, dad would ever do anything like that.

Rafe: Look, let me get this straight. You knew that lucas had kidnapped sami. But you didn’t come to the police even though you knew your brother was serving time for something that he didn’t do? No, no, you just told your wife.

Chad: Okay, whatever. Lock me up then, but do not let him get away with murder.

Rafe: Okay, you know what, chad, let me tell you something. There is a step missing here, okay? Unless he knew that she knew what he had done.

Chad: Yeah, he did, and I found that out today.

Rafe: And how did he know that?

Chad: Kate told him.

Roman: Look, kate, I– I really don’t know what there is to say about lucas. He kidnapped sami. He put her through hell.

Kate: I know.

Roman: And as much as I want to beat the crap out of him for what he did to sami, I just hope to god he didn’t have anything to do with what happened to abigail for your sake.

Kate: Roman, I am so, so sorry.

Roman: For what? I mean, what did you do? You’re not responsible for what lucas did.

Kate: I’m responsible for what I did.


[Sniffles] I knew what lucas had done, and I didn’t tell you.

Ej: Damn it, sami, I don’t want to throw you out on your ass, but I will!

Sami: Come on out, nicole! It took you less time to cheat on rafe than it did on eric!

Ej: Okay, that’s it.

Sami: Oh, ow! All right, stay in the bathroom. I’m gonna go tell rafe! You’re such a coward, nicole!

Belle: Wait, wait. You know what, you’re wrong as usual. It’s not nicole.

Migraine attacks?

Sami: You–you slept with my sister?

Ej: You have nothing to say about this.

Sami: The hell I don’t!

Ej: You divorced me. I’m not your husband anymore.

Sami: She’s still my sister. I cannot believe how disgusting this is. But you know, don’t you, because that’s why you were hiding in the bathroom!

Belle: No, I went into the bathroom because I could not stomach another one of your self-indulgent tantrums, and I came out of the bathroom to spare rafe and nicole from having to deal with you.

Sami: Oh, stop it with your moral high ground, your high-handedness. You are unbelievable! I mean, here you two are, lying, sneaking around town, telling people, “oh, I’m just friend with belle. She’s just my lawyer.” You two had to take your clothes off to go over some torts?

Belle: No, that’s not why we took our clothes off. But the fact that we kept our private life private doesn’t mean we’re sneaking around or lying. We’re not doing anything wrong.

Sami: Well, you are cheating on your husband.

Belle: No, shawn and i are separated.

Sami: Aw, you’re on a break?

Belle: Oh, my god. Why do you even care? And like ej said, why are you even here, sami? Aren’t you supposed to be getting married to lucas tonight? Ej: Maybe his mummy grounded him.

Sami: You know what, fine. Enjoy yourselves. Just remember, he’s only sleeping with you to get back at me.

Ej: Okay, that’s it. You’re coming with me.

Sami: Ha, told you so.

[Tense music]

Rafe: So kate told lucas that abigail knew he kidnapped sami?

Chad: That’s right.

Rafe: Okay. And how did you know that?

Chad: Kate told me.

Rafe: So once again, you decided to take matters into your own hands? Instead of coming here to the police, you went to the church.

Chad: Like I said, arrest me for disturbing the peace or obstruction of justice, but do not let lucas get away with murder.

Rafe: I won’T. That is, if he did it. But kidnapping sami is a far cry from brutally murdering his own niece. I’m sorry, I just don’t think that lucas is capable of that.

Chad: No, if he was sober, but he wasn’T.

Roman: So what do you mean you knew what lucas had done?

Kate: I knew that lucas was the one who had sami kidnapped.

Roman: Okay, let me get this straight. Okay, you knew this, you didn’t tell anyone? My daughter spent months not knowing where she was, what the hell was gonna happen to her, not knowing whether she’d ever see her children again.

Kate: I didn’t know that then, I knew that after.

Roman: Oh, after what, lucas rescued her?

Kate: Roman, if I had known she was in danger, I would tell you.

Roman: Well, she kind of was in danger, kate. She went on this grand tour to europe with the sociopath who kidnapped her. She was gonna marry the sociopath who kidnapped her.

Kate: That’s my son, okay? I had already lost philip, and I didn’t want to lose lucas.

Roman: Oh, philip. Right, right, right. Okay, on new year’s eve, all right, when you told me the truth about him, you said to me that you didn’t want there to be any secrets between us. That meant a lot to me, kate, and now, it turns out to be just another one of your lies.

Nicole: It was lucas who kidnapped sami?

Eric: Well, he was denying it, and then later he admitted it.

Nicole: Wow, this is crazy. I mean, I feel sorry for everyone involved. I feel sorry for sami.

Eric: It was awful all the way around.

Nicole: Wait a minute, that means ej was innocent this whole time.

Eric: Yeah.

Nicole: How’s sami?

Eric: I don’t know. I don’t know where she is. She won’t talk to me.

Nicole: Well, don’t worry too much, okay? Sami always lands on her feet.

Sami: I swear, damn all of them. I’m going, ej. I’m just going.

Ej: No, don’t!

Sami: What?

Ej: Don’t!

Sami: Listen, okay? I meant everything I said. Have at it with belle. Sleep with anyone you want to, okay? Tell belle tell you all the horrible stories about everything I’ve done to her my entire life.

Ej: You know, you were so bloody horrible just now, so bloody irritating…

Sami: I don’t need this.

Ej: But I didn’t stop to realize… that you wouldn’t have come here tonight if something wasn’t terribly wrong.

Sami: What? No, nothing’s wrong. Just came to share some wedding cake with you–

Ej: Damn it, samantha. Tell me what happened. Why aren’t you with lucas at your wedding?

Sami: There was no wedding. I didn’t marry lucas.

Ej: Well, um, good. But why?

Sami: Because you were right.

[Sighs] So I came here to– to tell you the big news that… lucas is the one who kidnapped me. My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…

Allie: No. Even if dad was drunk, there’s no way that he would hurt abigail. He would never hurt anybody, I mean, you know how much the horton family means to him. Okay, obviously, you’re not saying what you’re thinking. Don’t you think at least you and I can be honest with each other?

Will: Look what he did to her. Right? Dad loves mom, but he kept her prisoner for months.

Allie: Okay, to protect her from ej. I know. No, you’re right. That was just an excuse. It was horrible what he did.

Will: And if he doesn’t remember cutting his hand, what else does he not remember? I mean, allie, if you told me earlier today, is dad capable of kidnapping mom, I would’ve said no way. But he did to keep her away from ej. He did something so horrible, so desperate to keep from losing her, and when she agreed to marry him, the stakes just got even higher.

Allie: And once again, he had to do something crazy and desperate so that he didn’t lose her.

Will: I think he might have.

Nicole: So sami found out she was going to marry a kidnapper.

[Sighs] Would’ve loved to have seen that.

Eric: I thought you felt sorry for her.

Nicole: I–I mean, I do, as a woman and as a human being, but as sami brady, after everything she’s done to me– oh, you’ve gotta grant me a little schadenfreude.

Eric: Nicole, I know there’s no loss between the two of you, but can you just kinda bury the hatchet, at least for today?

Nicole: Well, maybe you could’ve told her that because she was such a bitch to me a few hours ago.

Sami: If anyone’s making a really big mistake in their life, it’s rafe. Marrying you? When are you gonna start slutting around behind his back the way you did with eric?

Kate: On–on new year’s eve, I didn’t know about what lucas had done.

Roman: When did you find out?

Kate: January 5th.

Roman: Wow. Kudos, kate. So our no secrets agreement lasted a total of five days, and then there was, you know, another secret.

Kate: Roman… I was scared for lucas. I was afraid of losing lucas.

Roman: Yeah, you didn’t want lucas locked up, but it was fine for my daughter.

Kate: No. Because sami was free, and not that I condone what he did, because I don’t, but it was over.

Roman: Kate, damn it, it wasn’t over. He was the same dangerous, unbalanced man that kidnapped her. Do you think the kidnapping was just a slip? How many times does lucas get to slip? Over, and over, and over.

Kate: Roman–

Roman: And you forgive him, and excuse him, and cover for him over and over and over.

Kate: I’m sorry, roman.

Roman: No, no, I get it. You’re afraid of losing him. But even so, don’t you think sami deserves some kind of heads up, kate, before she went around the world with this guy? Like, “sami,” you know, “watch your step.” You know, “don’t get on lucas’ bad side, he just may have a little slip, and you may end up in a quaint little dungeon in europe.

Kate: Okay, please don’t do that. Lucas loves sami.

Roman: Oh, yeah.

Kate: Lucas would never hurt sami.

Roman: Like philip loves chloe? Kate, did you ever stop to notice that people get hurt when your boys start to like women? Okay, there’s a lot of collateral damage, and yes, lucas is fragile, and he needs his mother’s motherly love, so ej, why don’t you go off to prison for what he did? Kate, you think I’m mad? What the hell do you think ej’s gonna do when he finds out about this? I wouldn’t wanna be in your shoes, and I sure as hell wouldn’t wanna be in lucas’.

Ej: Lucas had you kidnapped. Are you sure?

Sami: He admitted it. He also admitted that he’s the one who planted the evidence against you. He–he is the one who put the evidence on the dimera computers.

[Dramatic music]

All this time, I was travelling the world with my kidnapper. So what are you waiting for? Go ahead, gloat. I deserve it.

Ej: No. No. What lucas did was… unspeakable.

Sami: Well, that’s certainly an understatement, I mean, he put you in prison for a crime he committed.

Ej: That wasn’t the worst thing that he did to me. He kidnapped you to split us up. And when you came back… we were going to start over. You were ready to get past what happened between nicole and me. When rafe turned up and arrested me… if lucas hadn’t framed me… we would’ve gotten back together.

Sami: [Sighs] Now that can never happen.

Ej: No?

Sami: I thought sleeping with nicole was the worst thing you could ever do. Well, I was wrong. Sleeping with my sister is worse. Time. It’s life’s most precious commodity,

Will: [Sighs] I’m sorry. I–I mean, I hope I’m wrong.

Allie: Yeah, but maybe you’re right. I mean, we now know that he did something crazy when he was sober, so who knows what he did when he was drunk? Okay, but I can’t think about him right now because I’m really worried about mom, and i don’t think she should be alone.

Will: Okay. You gonna go to her?

Allie: Yeah. You wanna come?

Will: No, I, um– I think I’m gonna go check on dad.

Rafe: So will told you that lucas was drinking again?

Chad: So much so that he blacked out. And he doesn’t remember how he got that cut on his hand. And I don’t think cutting his hand is the only thing he doesn’t remember from that night.

Eric: So what did sami give you a hard time about?

Nicole: [Sighs] You know, the same old, same old.

Eric: [Chuckles] Well, she was riding high before the wedding. Look, I don’t know how she’s gonna get over this. She almost married the man who kidnapped her and who might be a murderer.

Nicole: Eric, do you really think it’s possible that lucas killed abigail? I mean, even if he was drunk, I still don’t think he’s capable of it.

Eric: Either did I. But I also didn’t think that lucas was capable of kidnapping my sister.

Ej: Samantha, please. Until you showed up tonight, I thought I’d lost you forever. But things are different now.

Sami: No, they aren’T. They aren’t different. They are exactly the same.

Ej: Samantha–

Roman: So you were comfortable with letting ej sit in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. Wow. You know, I’m not a big fan of ej’s, not at all, but I even gotta say, that is pretty low.

Kate: Roman, I felt terrible about it.

Roman: Yeah, but not terrible enough to do something.

Kate: It wasn’t that simple.

Roman: It was exactly that simple.

Kate: No, it wasn’T. Because chad was involved, and I had to protect him. And I didn’t let ej just rot in prison, because I was the one who lead belle to the evidence that got him out.

Roman: Oh, why didn’t you say so? So now we definitely have to give you a gold star.

Kate: [Sighs]

Roman: Kate–

Kate: [Sighs]

Roman: None of this changes the fact that you were fine with trading sami’s safety for your son’S.

Kate: She was safe, roman.

Roman: Yeah, just like abigail was.

Kate: Oh, god, don’t say that, don’t say that. Lucas did not do that. Lucas could not have done that, okay, that was–that was chad. He was just digging his grave.

Roman: Okay, all right. Look, I apologize. I shouldn’t have said that. I’m sorry.

Kate: No, it’s okay. Really, it’s okay. You know. You’re right, I was wrong. What I did was wrong. I know that, and I think I’m– part of me knew that the entire time, you know, that I was just–I was in it so deep, roman, and it went on so long. I was just really afraid that if you found out the truth… I would lose you.

Roman: You were right about that.

Kate: What do you mean?

Roman: The two of us… we’re done.

Kate: [Sighs, sniffles] What happens to your body language

Rafe: Well, thanks for bringing me up to speed.

Chad: You’re gonna get him to confess, right?

Rafe: Chad, you’ve gotta let me handle this.

Chad: You looking for your father? He’s in there. With rafe. He’s questioning him. About what he did to my wife.

Lucas: What did chad tell you?

Rafe: Forget about chad. I need to ask you some questions.

Ej: What are you doing?

Belle: What does it look like I’m doing? I’m leaving.

Allie: Mom.

Sami: What are you doing here?

Allie: I was looking for you. Are you okay?

Sami: No.

Allie: Oh, mom.

Sami: No, I’m not okay.

[Sobbing] I was on an antidepressant,

Chad: I wanted you to hear it from me that… I told rave that you told me about your father’s drinking.

Will: Not surprising. You told a church full of people that he kidnapped my mom.

Chad: Well, you told me in confidence. But it’s evidence, so I had to tell rafe.

Will: Yeah, no, I– you gotta do what you gotta do. And I gotta stand by my dad. Were you about to leave?

Chad: Yeah.

Will: Then why don’t you get going? Looks like I’m gonna be here for a while.

Rafe: The night abigail was murdered, were you drinking?

Lucas: Yes.

Rafe: Did you kill her?

Lucas: Come on, rafe.

Rafe: Just answer the question. Did you kill abigail dimera?

Lucas: I do not remember. I don’t remember anything from that night.

Kate: Roman… you don’t mean that. I mean, I know that what I did was terrible. Please, I know we can work it out.

Roman: No. I want you to leave.

Kate: Okay, okay.

Roman: No.

[Sighs] Get your stuff. I want you out of here.

Kate: [Scoffs] Roman.

Roman: Goodbye, kate.

Eric: I ‘m really sorry, but I need to go find sami.

Nicole: Okay, maybe you should check with ej.

Eric: What–what is that supposed to mean?

Nicole: It means that the sami I know always goes running back to him.

Ej: Belle, look, I know that must’ve been painful, but she’s gone now.

Belle: Oh, okay. So, what? We just get back into bed and act like nothing ever happened?

Ej: No, no, I’m not saying that, I’m just saying you don’t have to go.

Belle: Oh, my god, ej, of course I have to go. It can’t work between us. I thought for a brief time that maybe it could, but now i know I was just deluding myself.

Ej: Is this because of samantha? Stupid question, how could it not be?

Belle: No.

Ej: I’m sorry.

Belle: It’s not a stupid question. I actually thought that I could be happy with you, in spite of knowing how much that was gonna hurt my sister, but, you know, even as much as I resent her, and, I mean, sometimes, I despise her, she is my sister. And when she’s in pain like that it just hurts me.

Ej: I understand that.

Belle: I know you do. And even if I didn’t know that you still had feelings for her, I would just… I’d feel her presence in my mind’s eye, just watching and judging everything, and, god, relationships are hard enough without adding that kind of complication.

Ej: Hm. So… are you going back to shawn?

Belle: I don’t know what’s gonna happen with shawn. That’s complicated, too, obviously. I think I just need to keep things simple for a while, even if that just means being alone. You were there for me when i really needed you, and I will always be grateful for that.

Ej: And I’ll be grateful, too. For everything you’ve done for me. And for all the good times that we’ve had together.

Sami: Oh, sweetheart, I’m sorry. [Sobs] I’m so sorry. This is really embarrassing.

Allie: No, no, no, no. I think–hey, I think it’s human, and look, I know how tough you are. You’re so strong. But I think that tonight… it’s okay if you fall apart. Okay?

Sami: It was supposed to be the happiest day of my life, and it…

[Sobs] Oh, allie. I’m so sorry.

Allie: No.
