Xander: Why not? I mean, if kristen hadn’t shipped you off to that godforsaken island, we’d have celebrated our first anniversary by now. I don’t see any reason to wait. Unless you’ve changed your mind?

Sarah: No, no. No, I can’t wait to marry you. But, like–but don’t you want a wedding with all of your family and friends?

Xander: [Snorts] Those are few and far between for me, I’m afraid. My best–my only mate just reminded me there’s no guarantees in this life. You have to seize the day.

Sarah: Carpe diem. We learned that the hard way, didn’t we?


Xander: [Sighs] The only thing–the only person I need for a real wedding is my bride, the woman I love with all my heart and soul. So, sarah horton…

Sarah: Mm-hmm?

Xander: Will you marry me, today?

Sarah: [Laughing] Yes!

Xander: [Sighs]

Sarah: Now you can put that ring back on my finger.

Gwen: [Groans] Great. Maybe I should phone up “law & order: Special library unit” to find out the case of the missing bloody pages.

Roy: Rizczech.

Gwen: Roy. What’s up?

Roy: Brought you some company. Meet your new cell mate.

[Dramatic music]

Nancy: [Chuckles] Well, if it isn’t my least favorite…weasel. Hmm, have you heard the news?

Leo: You’re leaving town to join the circus? I always thought you’d make a great lion tamer.

Nancy: [Chuckles] You think you’re so damn funny, don’t you?

Leo: Ugh, what is your news? I don’t have time for schmoozing.

Nancy: Just forget about it. It’s all about my fella, and what’s it to you anyway?

Leo: Wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. Your fella? Clyde weston?

Nancy: Yes. He was exonerated. He has an airtight alibi for the night that abigail was killed.

Leo: Whoa. Color me shocked.

Nancy: I told you all along that he was innocent. The only thing that he’s guilty of is, well, buying a piece of stolen jewelry. The person that he bought it from, that’s the real killer.

Marlena: I want to take you back to june 10th. Do you know where you were?

Lucas: I’m at the pub.

Marlena: Are you alone?

Lucas: No, my mom’s here with me. She just told me that abigail knows the truth. She knows that I’m the one who kidnapped sami.

Marlena: Okay. Tell me what happened next.

Lucas: I’m freaking out. I know that if abigail writes about it, if she–if she tells anybody, if she tells ej, that that’s it for me.

[Breathes shakily] My mom’s trying to tell me that abigail isn’t gonna say anything, but I– I don’t believe her.

Marlena: And then what?

Lucas: She–she left. And I, uh… I’m going around the bar. I’m grabbing a bottle of liquor.

Marlena: What happened next?

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

[Soft orchestration]

Gwen: You’re my new cellmate?

Kristen: Disappointed?

Gwen: Bit surprised. I mean, how does a mastermind criminal like kristen dimera end up here?

Kristen: [Chuckles] By choice.

Gwen: So in other words, you mean the authorities have finally caught up to you, then?

Kristen: Oh, please. I could have outrun those morons for the rest of my life. But I missed my little girl. I couldn’t bear the thought of never seeing her again.

Gwen: Well, that is just bloody fantastic. Not only am I stuck behind bars, but now I have to bunk with the woman who destroyed my relationship with the love of my life.

Xander: About your ring…

Sarah: You still have it, right? Kristen gave it back to you when she was pretending to be me and called off the wedding.

Xander: She did. But, um…

Sarah: But what?

Xander: I’m no longer in possession of it.

Sarah: Did you throw it away when you thought that I broke your heart?

Xander: Of course not. I wouldn’t do that with something as important as your engagement ring.

Sarah: Oh, thank god.

Xander: No, I sold it.

Sarah: What?

Xander: There was something I really needed to buy.

Sarah: What?

Xander: This.

Sarah: Oh, it’s beautiful. It’s–it’s very different than the other one. Is that the idea behind it? Was it, you just wanted to get me something new? A fresh start?

Xander: I, um– I didn’t buy this ring for you.

Sarah: Mm. Who’d you buy it for?

Xander: Gwen.

Gwen: You sold my ring to buy one for gwen?

Xander: [Sighs] Sarah, you have to understand. At the time, I thought there was no hope for us. I had no idea you were trapped on that island. I thought you’d run off with rex and wanted nothing more to do with me.

Sarah: Mm, and that was before I’d been given a second dose of a mind-altering drug by the woman you were about to marry.

Xander: I’m so sorry, sarah. Look, if I had known what gwen was capable of, the lengths she was gonna go to, I never would have bought this ring.

Sarah: I know. And obviously, I understand why gwen was so desperate to hold on to you. I just wish she would have chosen to do something a little less extreme, like challenge me to a cage fight or a duel or something.

Xander: She put your life in danger with that drug. I’ll–I’ll never forgive her.

Sarah: Then how about we forget her? Hmm? My meds are working. I mean, it’s probable that the hallucinations have just stopped, so–

Xander: I hope so. I know how terrifying they’ve been for you, looking at someone and seeing kristen dimera instead.

Sarah: And wanting to kill them. Xander, I’m– I’m so lucky that there was always a third person there to talk me down. I could’ve really hurt someone.

Kristen: Don’t blame all of this on me.

[Chuckles] You wouldn’t even be with xander if I hadn’t shipped sarah off to that island.

Gwen: Oh. Oh, kristen, darling, I’m so very grateful to you. I mean, look around here. I’m living the dream, thanks to you.

Kristen: Well, I can’t help it if you’re not smart enough to stay out of this joint.

Gwen: Excuse me, I am the one who helped keep you out of prison. You blackmailed me into helping you escape. You said if I didn’t, you would tell xander the truth.

Kristen: And when xander started looking into sarah’s disappearance, I’m the one who gave you the mask.

Gwen: So that I could pose as sarah and go to him and tell him to leave her alone and go back to me, which I did.

Kristen: And did he buy it?

Gwen: Yes, but–

Kristen: But nothing.

[Chuckles] Oh, my god. I gave you everything you needed to walk down that aisle with that stupid ape, and abigail is the one who got in your way. So if you want to blame someone for destroying your relationship, blame your little sister.

Leo: The cops already have someone in custody for abigail’s murder.

Nancy: Already? Who? Lucas horton?

Leo: Mm-hmm.

Nancy: That’s impossible. He’s abigail’s uncle. He loved her.

Leo: I assume he loved his fiancée too, and yet he’s accused of kidnapping her. Sounds like herr horton was on quite a crime spree.

Nancy: This isn’t possible. I’ve known lucas for years. He’s–he’s incapable of murder. It must be the brain tumor.

Leo: He has a brain tumor? The article didn’t mention that.

Nancy: Oh, that’s right. He made it up.

Leo: He lied about having a terminal illness? Even I’ve never sunk that low. Well, I don’t know if he’s lost his marbles or what, but he sure sounds guilty to me.

Nancy: No, lucas has done some terrible things in his life, but he would never have killed abigail. The police are barking up the wrong tree. Psoriatic arthritis,

Clyde: Man, I could lose everything, thanks to you. My job, my girl, my freedom. But I’m gonna get me some payback when I sue you and the rest of the keystone cops for false arrest.

Jada: You could sue, but you’d lose.?

Jada: I’m sure commissioner hernandez explained that he had every right to bring you in. You’d been in possession of stolen property which was linked to a murder.

Clyde: Young lady, I was wronged by the cops, and I’m gonna hold ’em accountable.

Jada: Fine, bring your suit. But just know that if you do, what you did to ej dimera will most likely get dragged into this.

Clyde: How do you know about that?

Jada: Admittedly, it’s his word against yours, but a good prosecutor could really build a strong case against you. And from what I hear, melinda trask is desperate for a win and will do anything to get it. So instead of borrowing trouble, why don’t you back off?

Clyde: Who the hell are you?

Jada: Jada hunter. Pleasure to meet you, mr. Weston.

Clyde: I’m gonna take my break.

Rafe: I have to admit, that was very impressive.

Jada: Does that mean I’m hired?

Sarah: So what are you gonna do with that ring? Do not say give it to me.

Xander: Of course not. I’m gonna trade it in. I bought this at the same pawn shop that I sold yours, so I can just do a simple swap, and then we can get married.

Sarah: Do you think they still have my ring?

Xander: I’m very optimistic.

Sarah: Hmm, okay. Well, then all we need is someone to officiate.

Xander: Your mum can do it.

Sarah: My mother?

Xander: She got ordained online. Yeah, last fall, she married justin and bonnie.

Sarah: Oh, I bet victor loved that.

Xander: Actually, I heard he behaved himself and they had a lovely ceremony. In fact, there’s a rumor going around that bonnie and vic are getting on rather well. And if that’s possible, then pulling off our wedding should be a piece of cake.

Sarah: So we’re really doing this.

Xander: We are really doing this.

Sarah: [Squeals]

Xander: [Chuckles]

Gwen: You want me to blame abigail for my troubles?

Kristen: Well, I guess you can’t blame her that much since she’s dead, but don’t take your frustration out on me.

Gwen: Doesn’t really leave too many people to take them out on, does it? Why are you looking at me like that?

Kristen: Well… it just occurred to me that your sister was viciously murdered, stabbed repeatedly in her own bed. Clearly whoever did that was filled with rage.

Gwen: Or maybe it was a robbery, and abigail was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

Kristen: [Chuckles] No, I don’t think so. Mm-mm. See, I think this was personal. See, whoever came at abigail with that knife hated her with a passion. Like you, gwen. See, you despised your sister for exposing you right before you were about to marry the love of your life. You came so close, and she took it all away.

Gwen: So I’m your prime suspect then, am I?

Kristen: Mm.

Gwen: You know what? I think you’ve been reading too many of these.

Kristen: Are you saying that you didn’t have a motive?

Gwen: I had motive, yes. But you see, there’s a tiny little problem there with your theory. I couldn’t have killed abigail. You know why? ‘Cause I was locked up in here.

Kristen: Mm.

Marlena: Lucas, you took a bottle of liquor from behind the bar at the pub. Did you–did you stay there and drink it?

Lucas: No. No, I went to the park.

[Groans] I was beyond upset. I knew if abigail told anyone what I had done, I’d lose sami. I’d lose everything. I just–I just wanted to forget, so I kept drinking. But then…

[Grunts] I left.

Marlena: Where did you go when you left the park?

Lucas: Abigail. Abigail, it’s your uncle lucas. I need to talk to you now.

[Breathing heavily] Oh, my god. Oh, my god, I was there. I went to see abigail.

Nancy: Clyde?

Clyde: Oh, nancy.

Nancy: Clyde… I heard you were released.

Clyde: Yeah. Good to be out. Even better to see you.

Nancy: Mm. I’m glad. So I hear you have an airtight alibi?

[Both sigh] The security footage from the dock.

Clyde: Yeah. Kind of glad big brother caught me fishing.

Nancy: Well, like I said, I’m glad for you. I mean, I know you’ve done some questionable things, but, clyde, I knew there was no way you could have killed that innocent young woman in cold blood.

Clyde: That’s one crime I swear to you I did not commit.

[Sighs] But I have to admit, not all my misdeeds are in the past.

Nancy: What do you mean?

Clyde: I owe you an apology. It was dead wrong of me to give you that stolen bracelet.

Leo: Hey!

Xander: Watch it.

Leo: Oh. [Gasps] My, my, what do we have here?

[Gasps] Xandy. I’ve dreamt about this day. The answer’s yes.

Xander: Just be careful with that.

Leo: What, it’s not for me?

Xander: Course it’s not for you, you idiot. It’s for sarah. We’re getting married today.

Leo: What about gwen? Oh, is she just out of sight, out of mind?

Xander: Gwen destroyed our relationship when she poisoned sarah with that second dose of rolf’s drug.

Leo: Well, if you’re getting married today, she must be okay now.

Xander: Gwen didn’t cause any permanent damage, thank god, but sarah’s been struggling for months. They’ve only just figured out her dose, and she’s finally back in her right mind.

Leo: Are you sure about that? I mean, she’d have to be nuts to marry you with that heinous ring.

Xander: I have a wedding to get to.

Leo: Yeah, for the record, gwen only did what she did because she loved you. And you led her to believe you loved her too, or have you forgotten? It wasn’t that long ago you were putting a ring on her finger.

Kristen: So… you were in prison when abigail was murdered? Huh?


Roy: Hey, rizczech.

Gwen: Oh, hi, roy.

Roy: Mm-mm. You missed bed check. Where the hell have you been?

Gwen: That’s right. And thanks to abigail outing me at my wedding, I was already serving my time here for helping you kidnap her.

Kristen: Hmm. And giving sarah another dose of that drug? Yeah, word gets around.

Gwen: So then since I was locked up, it should be obvious to you now I could not have possibly killed my sister.

Kristen: Hmm. Well, I suppose, to the average person, I’d consider that an airtight alibi. But a criminal mastermind like me? There’s plenty of ways of getting in and out of this place if you know what you’re doing.

Gwen: Mm. And if you happen to have a woman that looks exactly like you and who is willing to take your place.

Kristen: Well, they say everyone has a twin.

Gwen: Well, not me. I don’T. No. No twins, no friends, and…no way out.

Kristen: Aww. Well, then I guess you’re right, gwen. Hmm? You do have an alibi.

Maggie: Oh, sarah. Oh, my goodness, are you a sight for sore eyes.

Sarah: Hi, mom. What’s wrong?

Maggie: Oh. [Chuckles] I was just reading about lucas.

Sarah: [Sighs]

Maggie: You know, I am still– I’m trying to process that he’s the one that kidnapped sami.

Sarah: [Sighs] You know, as a kidnap victim myself, I can tell you that some people will just go to extremes for love.

Maggie: [Sighs] Yeah. And as awful as holding sami captive was, I cannot believe that he is the one that murdered abigail.

Sarah: No, I–I don’t– I don’t think so either. But it does sound like he fell off the wagon pretty hard.

Maggie: Yeah. He must have been in a very– a very dark and desperate place. And god knows I know about that myself. Hey, but you know what? The lucas that I know, he’s not capable of that kind of violence.

Sarah: Yeah. I agree, mom.

Maggie: I wish someone would convince the police.

Rafe: Detective hunter, as much as I appreciate the assist with clyde, we still do have to go through the formality of this interview.

Jada: Course, commissioner. Steve johnson let me know that you’re very diligent.

Rafe: Oh, well, he had many good things to say about you as well. In fact, he couldn’t recommend you highly enough.

Jada: Well, that’s very kind of you, but he was one of my father’s oldest friends, so you should probably take it with a grain of salt.

Rafe: Ah, yes. Marcus hunter.

Jada: He was a doctor here in salem for years. He always said that this was a great place to live. So when I heard you were down a couple detectives, I took that as an opportunity to bone up on the abigail dimera case.

Rafe: Clearly.

Jada: So, uh, mr. Weston, his alibi, is it solid?

Rafe: Yeah, rock-solid. Time-stamped security footage. But we do have another suspect in custody.

Jada: Lucas horton. I read about that. But unless there’s something you’re holding back, it doesn’t seem like you have much to hold him on.

Rafe: Well, I don’t have a problem telling you that the evidence we have against him is, well, thin. But we are working on that right now.

Marlena: So you went to the dimera house that night.

Lucas: I was banging on the front door. I was yelling for abigail.

Marlena: Did she answer?

[Knocking at door]

Lucas: Abigail, I know you’re in there; open up. No, no she didn’t answer. I tried the door, but it was locked.

[Dramatic music]

Marlena: Lucas, did you leave?

Lucas: No. I went in through the french doors. Abigail, are you in here? Abigail! She wasn’t there, so I decided to fix myself a drink and wait.

[Lid clatters]

[Burps] I was slicing a lemon, and the knife slipped. Aah! Ow!

[Groaning] Ow! [Groans] Ow.


Marlena: So that’s how you cut your hand? It was on the knife that you used to cut the lemon.

Lucas: Yes.

Marlena: What did you do next? Did you leave?

Lucas: No. No, I started slicing another lemon for my drink, and that’s when I heard a noise from upstairs.

Gwen: There’s just so much that I wish I’d done differently.

Kristen: Regrets are a waste of time, sister.

Gwen: All I have is bloody time. You were right. If I had been more clever, careful, if I hadn’t made so many stupid mistakes, I’d still be with xander.

Kristen: You are better off without him. The guy is a monster who made me think that my baby was dead.

Gwen: That’s only because he couldn’t bear to tell sarah that she’d lost her own.

Kristen: Oh, oh. So…he did it for love, and that makes it okay?

Gwen: No, I didn’t say that.

Kristen: Oh, good, good. Good, because what–what he did was sick and wrong and twisted.

[Sighs] I mean, sarah did give me rachel back. I mean, I did have to chase her all the way to paris.

Gwen: So you don’t blame her, then?

Kristen: No. No, I don’T. She was a grieving mother. And xander made her pain a thousand times worse with his lies.

[Chuckles] So hey, if she wants to be with him, let her have him. You just gotta sit back and relax and just watch their relationship combust on its own.

Gwen: Yeah, like that’s ever gonna happen.

Kristen: [Chuckles] I don’t know. What I’ve seen is, uh, sarah is still a bit…off.

Maggie: Come on. As worried as I am about lucas…

Sarah: Mm-hmm.

Maggie: Right now, I want to hear from you. How are you doing, sweetheart?

Sarah: I’m doing better. Yeah, I, uh–my hallucinations are under control, thanks to my meds. And…I haven’t had a kristen sighting in a couple days, which is good.

Maggie: I’m glad. You know, I was really worried that what gwen did to you would keep you from getting on with your life.

Sarah: Yeah, I don’t think that you have to be worried. I’m, um… I’m hopeful about the future. And I want to seize the day.

Maggie: Okay.

Sarah: So…are you busy?

Maggie: Uh, no. [Chuckles] Why?

Sarah: Xander and I were wondering if you would marry us.

Maggie: Oh, now?

Sarah: Mm-hmm. Yeah, we don’t want to wait. He’s–he’s picking up my ring as we speak, and then we’ll be good to go.

Maggie: [Sighs] Are you sure that’s what you want?

Sarah: More than anything.

Maggie: Well, I know that’s what xander wants.

Sarah: [Chuckles]

Maggie: I saw him while you were gone, and he was a broken man. I mean, all those months, he never–he never got over you.

Sarah: Well, he doesn’t have to. I’m back. And we can finally start our life together.

Jada: Did you find the murder weapon?

Rafe: The knife? Not yet. But there is another person of interest in the mix.

Jada: Oh?

Rafe: Yeah.

Jada: And you’re looking into it?

Rafe: Yeah. But the description that clyde provided has been, well, let’s say less than helpful. So at the moment, uh, lucas is the person of interest that we’re focusing on. Speaking of which, I should get back to the station, see if there’s anything new. You coming?

Jada: Does that mean I got the job?

Rafe: Welcome to salem pd.

Marlena: Lucas, tell me about what you heard.

Lucas: I’m not sure.

Marlena: What did you do next?

Lucas: I walked towards the foyer, and I heard some sort of commotion, so I stopped.

Marlena: And then?

Lucas: I saw someone rushing down the stairs toward the front door.

Marlena: Who was it?

[Suspenseful music]

Lucas: Oh, my god.

Migraine attacks?

Maggie: Sarah, are you almost ready?


Sarah: [Giggles] Well? What do you think? It’s not bad after months in storage on a tropical island.

Maggie: Sweetheart, you look beautiful.

Sarah: [Chuckles]

Xander: I’ll second that.

Sarah: [Gasps]

Maggie: [Gasps]

Sarah: Oh! You clean up so nice.

Xander: Well, especially since I have this.

Sarah: Is that the sporran I got you?

Xander: It is. I found it with the note that you left me after I thought you’d left me. You were right. No kilt would be complete without it.

Sarah: Just like I’m not complete without you.

Xander: Well, in addition to being very handsome, it’s also quite practical. Look.

Sarah: [Gasps] You got my ring back. They still had it. Thank god.

Xander: If they hadn’t, I’d have gone to the ends of the earth to track it down for you.

Sarah: Hmm. So all we need now are wedding bands.

Xander: Hmm, as I said, very practical.

Sarah: [Chuckles]

Maggie: [Laughs] Well, I believe we have everything now. So come on, let’s get on with this thing. Let’s make you husband and wife.

Clyde: I wish I could tell you how much I’d like to waltz into one of them fancy jewelry stores and just buy the most expensive bracelet they got. But I can’t afford that. So if I’m gonna give you the kind of present you deserve, I gotta cut corners.

Nancy: Clyde, you don’t have to give me fancy gifts to impress me.

Clyde: Well, that’s what you’re used to, isn’t it? I mean, I’m guessing that doctor ex-husband of yours would give you anything that you wanted.

Nancy: [Chuckles] Except for the one thing I wanted most, clyde. A man who loved me.

Clyde: He didn’t love you?

Nancy: No. He di–he does. Clyde, craig was never in love with me.

Clyde: Yeah.

Nancy: He spent years lying to me and to himself.

Clyde: Well, that’s tough.

Nancy: So, um, the best– the most valuable thing that you could ever give me is honesty.

Clyde: Okay. From here on out, it’s nothing but the god’s honest truth. Though I do have to say that even though I lied to you about how I acquired that bracelet, I wasn’t lying about who I got it from.

Nancy: Some guy.

Clyde: Yeah. I just wish I could remember exactly what he looked like.

Rafe: So there are a couple empty desks. You can feel free to take…

Marlena: Rafe…

Rafe: Either one. Yes? And this is dr. Marlena evans, the psychiatrist who hypnotized lucas horton.

Marlena: Nice to meet you.

Jada: Dr. Evans.

Rafe: So how’d it go? Was lucas able to remember anything about the night abigail was murdered?

Marlena: Yes. Absolutely.

From prom dresses

Nancy: The police have someone in custody right now.

Clyde: You don’t sound too happy about that.

Nancy: Well, I’ve– I’ve known this person for years, and I don’t think it’s possible for him to have killed abigail. I mean, I– clyde… I want you to take a look at this picture and tell me if this is the person who sold you the bracelet.

Clyde: Well, that’s lucas. Kate’s boy. It wasn’t him.

Nancy: [Sighs]

Clyde: No.

[Scoffs] I wish I could figure out who this weasel was, make him pay for what he did to me.

Nancy: [Chuckles] I just had to deal with my own little weasel. Leo stark. The man that my husband left me for.

Clyde: You ask me, he did you a favor. He did me one too.

Nancy: Thank you. That’s very sweet, clyde, but…

[Sighs] Leo stark is pond scum. He makes whoever sold you that bracelet look like a prince.

Clyde: Well, maybe. But if I find out who it is, little hustler who jammed me up, man, there’s gonna be trouble.

Lucas: What did rafe say?

Marlena: He said don’t worry. He’s on it.

[Phone beeps]

Rafe: Chad, wanted to give you a heads up, I’m bringing in a person of interest.

Maggie: We are gathered here today to join this man and this woman in holy matrimony. If anyone can show just cause as to why these two people should not be joined in marriage– I can’t imagine who that might be, but speak now, or forever hold your peace.

Jada: I can.

Gwen: What do you mean, sarah seems off?

Kristen: Well, before I was transferred here, she came to visit me at the police station in salem. She chewed me out for ruining her life. Told me that she was still having hallucinations. Apparently she sees me everywhere.

Gwen: So I heard.

Kristen: Yeah, it seems like she’s, uh, still feeling that aftereffect of the second jab you gave her. So cheer up, gwennie. If sarah is stuck in crazy town, then maybe she and xander won’t be riding off into the sunset after all.

Maggie: Who are you?

Jada: Detective jada hunter, salem pd.

Maggie: And you have an objection to this marriage?

Sarah: Do you know her?

Xander: Never seen her before in my life.

Jada: I’m afraid I have to bring you in for questioning.

Maggie: Oh, no, xander. What have you done now?

Jada: Not him. Her. I’m here for dr. Sarah horton.
