Days of Our Lives Transcript
Transcript provided by Suzanne
Bonnie: Justin! Where are you? I thought we were ha-ha-having a late dinner.
[Laughs] What’s all this?
Justin: A picnic. I started to set it up on the patio, but I nearly got eaten alive by mosquitos. So I hope this is okay.
Bonnie: Aw, honey, it’s perfect.
Justin: Here you go. To my beautiful wife.
Bonnie: To my thoughtful husband. And here I thought we were gonna have takeout from buddy’s burger barn. And you went and dialed up that romance, cowboy.
Justin: I’ll admit that I may have been influenced by alex. I tell you, my son really seems to know how to impress the ladies.
Stephanie: I should get going, first day on a new job tomorrow.
Alex: You could be late. I’ll write you a note.
Stephanie: [Sighs] Would you just give up? I’m not just gonna fall into your arms because you’re handsome. Maybe that works on other women, but not me.
Alex: She thinks I’m handsome. Yes! Still in the game, baby.
Chloe: What word has an a and an n, but doesn’t end in t?
[Knock on door] Oh, hey, nicole. Glad you’re here. This game drives me crazy. What word starts with an a–
Chloe: Uh, no, there’s no a in sex.
Nicole: No. No, chloe. Sex, that’s what they’re having. Eric and jada are sleeping together.
Rafe: Jada? Hey, thought your shift ended hours ago.
Jada: It did. I’m just taking another look at the suspects in the abigail dimera case.
Rafe: Well, we now have gwen rizczech in custody. Leo stark told us that she confessed to him.
Jada: I know, but I don’t trust that guy.
Leo: Oh, sonny? I forgot to ask, do you validate? The parking rates here–sonny? My hit list. How did this get here? And what is that on it? Blood? Oh, my god, sonny! Sonny! Sonny, can you hear me?
[Panting] He’s dead.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Nicole: So I knock on eric’s door, and jada answers– in a towel.
Nicole: So she gives me some song and dance about how she’s just taking a shower there because the air conditioning is broken, but what does an a/c being broken have to do–
Chloe: Okay, okay, can we just fast forward to the sex part?
Nicole: Yeah. Yeah, fine. Okay, so I tell her that I was relieved that she was just taking a shower, because when she answered eric’s door in just that towel, I was worried that maybe they slept together.
Chloe: Wait. You didn’t say that, did you?
Nicole: Yeah. Why wouldn’t I?
Chloe: Oh, my god.
Nicole: I was thrown off guard.
Chloe: Nicole, don’t you see how totally inappropriate that is?
Nicole: No, actually, I don’T.
Chloe: Telling the woman that you’re worried that she and eric had slept together? What are you, her mother?
Nicole: Can we drop the sarcasm, please?
Chloe: I just can’t believe you said that to a woman that you hardly know. Whoever she sleeps with, that’s none of your concern.
Nicole: Well, it is my concern who she sleeps with if I care about that person. A person who has been a good friend and I have a long history with.
Chloe: Okay, I don’t care if you’ve known eric since forever. This is a private matter between two people who are or are not having sex.
Nicole: Well, you didn’t let me finish.
Chloe: There’s more?
Nicole: Yeah, there’s more. She proceeds to tell me that they did sleep together.
Chloe: Probably ’cause you put her on the spot.
Nicole: You’re missing the point.
Chloe: The point being?
Nicole: That she and eric had sex.
Chloe: Well, good for them.
Nicole: That’s it? That’s all you’re gonna say?
Chloe: What do you want me to say? I’m so glad that jada confided in you, and you now finally know what eric’s and her relationship is, so that you can continue to obsess even more than you’ve been obsessing over this. I’m so happy for you.
Nicole: I am not obsessing. Why are you acting like I’m some kind of head case, and like I’m getting on your last nerve? This is important to me, chloe.
Chloe: I know it’s important. That’s why I’m worried about you. That you’re so freaked out that eric is with someone who isn’t you. And frankly, I don’t know how you’re not embarrassed that you interrogated that woman about her sex life. I’m a little embarrassed just hearing about it.
Nicole: Oh. Wow. Okay, well, forget I brought it up then. I’ll be on my way.
Chloe: Oh, for god’s sakes, don’t leave.
Nicole: Well, I don’t want to embarrass you, so I should go.
Chloe: Oh, fine, I am over my embarrassment. I just have a couple questions. What if eric and jada did have sex?
Nicole: What do you mean “what if” they had sex?
Chloe: What I mean is you should be reacting the same way I am, which is I could care less if they did. You should care less because, like I keep reminding you, you are a married woman.
Rafe: Well, you are right not to trust leo. The guy would do just about anything to keep himself out of trouble.
Jada: Like point the finger at his best friend.
Rafe: Yeah. I mean, he turned on gwen last time when he gave us the mask. I’m sure that he thought that was gonna be enough to get himself off the hook.
Jada: But trask decided to just charge them both with murder.
Rafe: And suddenly, leo swears that gwen told him that she murdered abigail. Seems a little convenient, wouldn’t you say?
Jada: Yeah, I would. So you agree that you think leo’s making up this confession?
Rafe: Well, it’s certainly possible.
Jada: So then that would mean that gwen could be innocent.
Rafe: Well, I took gwen’s statement myself, and my gut tells me that she was telling the truth, that when she left abigail’s room, abigail was still alive.
Jada: Gwen said she threatened her sister with a syringe, not a knife?
Rafe: That’s right.
Jada: So we know abigail was stabbed to death. And if gwen is telling the truth, then what happened to this knife?
Rafe: That’s a good question.
Leo: Oh, sonny.
Leo: [Gasps] You’re alive. Oh, thank god. Now what do I do? I’m gonna help you, that’s what I’m gonna do. Oh, ooh, I can’t, ’cause then they’re gonna think I did it. Ah. Ugh. But if I leave you here, you’re gonna bleed to death. Oh, there’s gotta be something. Um…I know. I’m gonna call an ambulance. Okay. Okay.
Chad: Leo? What the hell did you do?
When moderate to severe
ulcerative colitis persists…
Justin: You know, I was thinking…
Justin: That maybe we should take this little party out to the hot tub.
Bonnie: Well, I like the way you think.
Justin: Okay. I’ll go upstairs and change into my trunks.
Bonnie: Who needs trunks?
Justin: Bonnie kiriakis, are you suggesting what I think you’re suggesting?
Bonnie: Well, no one’s here. Seems like a perfect opportunity to skinny dip with your wife. What do you say, counselor? Shall we? Oh, yeah, drop ’em. Right here, right now.
Alex: Dude, cheese. Ah. Mmm. Mm.
Stephanie: I know it’s late, but any chance you’re still serving?
Eric: I’m sorry, the kitchen’s closed. Stephanie?
Stephanie: Hey, cuz.
Eric: I didn’t know you were in town.
Stephanie: I know, I just got here a few days ago.
Eric: It’s so good to see you. It’s been forever.
Stephanie: I know. It feels like I’m playing catch-up with everyone.
Eric: Yeah, well, you missed a lot of what’s going on in salem, right? Not necessarily a bad thing.
Stephanie: Yeah, so I gather. Speaking of, I was really sorry to hear that you and nicole split up.
Nicole: I know that I’m married, chloe. That hasn’t escaped me. But does that mean that I can’t be concerned about eric?
Chloe: Mm, it kind of does.
Nicole: Why? We’re good friends. And we have a long history together.
Chloe: As you keep saying. But that history, nicole, is what’s making your concern fraught.
Nicole: Fraught? Why?
Chloe: Come on, don’t you see what this is? This is dangerous territory. Honey, you are wondering about your ex-husband’s sex life?
Nicole: Well, I’m wondering because he’s in a very vulnerable place right now. I mean, he just left the priesthood.
Chloe: So what?
Nicole: So he’s not ready for anything serious.
Chloe: [Sighs] What are you, his shrink?
Nicole: Did I not already ask you to drop the sarcasm?
Chloe: Okay, what if this is not serious? What if it’s just sex?
Nicole: No, no, it’s– it’s not. It’s never just sex with someone like eric.
Chloe: Ah, here we go.
Nicole: Wh–what do you mean “here we go”? When this first came up, even you said that eric wouldn’t just jump into bed with someone. He wouldn’t do that unless feelings were involved.
Chloe: Well, maybe feelings are involved.
Nicole: That’s why I’m worried. Oh. Nice. First sarcasm and now an eyeroll? Wonderful. Thank you.
Chloe: Nicole, if you were thinking about any of this rationally, which you definitely are not, you would see that your worries and your concerns and your curiosity are wacko given that eric is a grown man, and given that you are a married woman– a newlywed, in fact.
Nicole: Do you know how annoying that is to have that constantly pointed out to me like I’m oblivious to the fact? This has nothing to do with me being married or eric being a grown man. This is about a friend who has made a huge and disorienting change in his life and is involved with a virtual stranger.
Chloe: Well, she’s clearly not a stranger to eric if he’s having sex with her.
Nicole: It’s not “if,” chloe. He is… which is why I think we should hire someone to do a background check on her.
Chloe: On jada?
Chloe: Okay, you have lost your mind.
Jada: Finding that murder weapon would answer a lot of questions.
Rafe: Yeah. Yeah, it would. You know, forensics thinks it was a steak knife, one that went missing from the dimera place the night that abigail was murdered.
Jada: Well, if it doesn’t get found, trask is gonna have a really tough time getting a conviction.
Rafe: Oh, yeah, well trask already thinks that she’s gonna be able to get the conviction, especially now that she’s got leo’s testimony in her pocket.
Jada: At best, his testimony is hearsay. At worst, a lie. And all the evidence surrounding gwen is all circumstantial.
Rafe: And I told trask that I believe gwen. It doesn’t matter. She’s on a warpath. She wants a conviction, like, yesterday.
Jada: Even if it’s the wrong person?
Rafe: Yeah. I hear you. And we’re not gonna get justice by rushing through this and convicting the wrong person.
Jada: Well, let’s keep digging.
Rafe: Oh, yeah, we will. It’s just, um, we have to do it carefully.
Rafe: Meaning we need trask to believe that we are gathering evidence to convict gwen.
Jada: Meanwhile, leo stark is out running around free doing god knows what.
Chad: You killed him?
Leo: No! No! He’s still alive!
Chad: What the hell happened?
Leo: I don’t know! I walked in and found him like this.
Chad: He has a pulse.
Leo: I told you.
Chad: Hey, it’s chad, buddy. I’m here, okay? I need you to stay with me. I need you to stay with me, okay, sonny? I’m right here, buddy. I have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.
Rafe: Okay, I think I’m gonna take off.
Jada: Okay, goodnight.
Rafe: Okay. Listen, not that I don’t appreciate your dedication, but I don’t want my newest detective burning out. So maybe you should call it a night too.
Jada: Well, I did have tentative dinner plans with eric.
Rafe: Oh, yeah. My wife said you two were dating.
Rafe: Yep. That’s the one.
Jada: It’s kind of weird, right?
Jada: That I’m dating your wife’s ex-husband. I mean, I don’t know, that doesn’t seem a little, like, incestuous?
Rafe: Well, in this town, you kind of get used to it.
Jada: Like underground tunnels and secret rooms. In salem, it’s all normal.
Rafe: Mm-hmm. Yeah. For better or worse, it kind of is. You know, in fact, my wife was once married to a guy–twice–who was married to a gal–twice– who I was married to once.
Jada: Okay, I have to wait for my head to stop spinning.
[Laughter] So you don’t see any potential problems here?
Rafe: You mean, as far as nicole’s concerned? Why would there be a problem?
Nicole: So you slept with eric, huh? That’s kind of fast, isn’t it?
Jada: Excuse me?
Nicole: You just got to town.
Jada: Actually, mrs. Hernandez, it’s been a couple weeks.
Nicole: Don’t you remember I asked you to call me nicole? And yes, I know it’s been a couple of weeks, but as far as I know, you and eric have only been out on one date? Unless, of course, I’m mistaken about that.
Jada: I’m sorry, nicole, but how is this any of your business?
Rafe: Nicole’s not interested in eric’s love life. Why would she be? I mean, yes, right, nicole and eric, obviously, they have a history, but– jada, what is it? There’s something you’re not telling me.
Jada: You know what, I– I think I’m gonna go ahead and call it a night.
Rafe: No, no, no, no. No. ‘Cause you looked worried there for a second. Did eric say something to you?
Jada: It’s all good, boss. Enjoy your evening.
Chloe: Wait, so you want to do a background check on the woman that your ex-husband is dating?
Nicole: Why is that so weird? Like I said, nobody knows anything about jada.
Chloe: We know plenty. Her dad was a respected doctor here in salem. He’s one of steve johnson’s oldest friends.
Nicole: But what about her? Who knows what she could be hiding?
Chloe: Oh, my goodness, do you even hear yourself?
Nicole: Think about it, chloe. How many people have showed up in this town over the years and lied about who they really are and had this dark side that they didn’t want anyone to know about?
Chloe: Ooh. Well, I’m pretty sure that, you know, your husband, the police commissioner, who hired jada–I’m guessing that he probably did a background check to make sure she doesn’t have a secret past of being a serial killer. Come on.
Nicole: I’m not saying she’s a serial killer, okay? I’m just saying that–
Chloe: What? What? What are you saying?
Nicole: I don’t know, okay? I don’t–I don’t know! I don’t know.
Stephanie: I really am sorry it didn’t work out with you and nicole. Must be very painful.
Eric: It was rough at first, you know? But we’ve moved on. I mean, she’s with rafe now. And, you know, I’m dating.
Stephanie: Glad to hear that. And it’s going well?
Eric: It is. You know. What about you? Anyone special?
Stephanie: There was someone last summer, but as soon as september came, he totally ghosted me.
Eric: I’m sorry. But that was a year ago. Maybe it’s time for you to get back out there.
Stephanie: I don’t know. I’ve been mostly focused on work right now. Besides, the only guy who’s shown any real interest in me lately is a total jackass.
Alex: Dad, I’m telling you, stephanie is incredible. She’s like this goddess, yet she’s down-to-earth. And she’s–she’s– she’s cool, and she’s funny, and she’s smart. She’s everything I’ve ever looked for in a woman. I’m telling you, she is the one. I know it.
Justin: Really? I’m a little surprised to hear you say that. I don’t think you’ve ever talked like that about anyone.
Alex: Well, that’s because I’ve never met anybody like stephanie before. Just one problem.
Justin: What’s that?
Alex: Sonny won’t let me anywhere near her.
Bonnie: I thought he bats for the other team.
Alex: No, it’s this work thing. He hired stephanie to do pr for titan, so he’s insisting that I keep it strictly business. So here I am, completely in love, head over heels with this girl, and he’s telling me to back off. Talk about a killjoy.
Chad: What are you doing just standing there? Call an ambulance!
Leo: All right, sorry. I need an ambulance to titan headquarters! Sonny kiriakis was stabbed.
Chad: 12th floor, executive suite. The security will direct them.
Leo: Did you get that? Okay, thank you. They’re on their way. Is he gonna be okay?
Chad: You better hope so. ‘Cause if he dies, you die. -Hi, dr. Rick. It’s julie. -[ Gasps ] That’s me.
Chad: That’s it, sonny, all right, I just need you to hold on, okay? Where is that ambulance?
Leo: It’s on the way.
Chad: Did you really even call one?
Chad: Well, this is what you wanted, right? Sonny bleeding out on the floor?
Leo: No! No! Chad, I didn’t do this. I showed up and he was like this. I–I came here to apologize!
Chad: Liar! After you lost craig, you made it very clear that you wanted revenge. Gwen told us you were gonna pick us off one by one. Well, you’ve done it.
Leo: No! No! No!
Chad: You killed abby. You stabbed sonny. You are gonna spend the rest of your life in a cage. Better yet, you’ll get the needle and go straight to hell! Where is the ambulance?
Leo: I’m gonna go check!
Justin: Sonny is being a smart ceo. It’s his job to protect titan.
Alex: And to support his big bro. Shouldn’t he want to see me with the woman of my dreams?
Justin: I’m sure he does. But you weren’t around when leo stark served sonny with a bogus sexual harassment lawsuit.
Alex: I heard all about that.
Justin: Yeah, well, sonny was innocent, obviously, and ultimately cleared, but the experience was devastating. So your brother just wants to keep you from going through the same hell that he did.
Alex: Dad, you really think stephanie would sue me?
Justin: I’d rather not find out.
Alex: Come on, dad, I mean–
Justin: Look, if she didn’t work for titan, I would say woo her to her heart’s content. But as long as she’s an employee of the company, the wisest course of action is to not get involved with her.
Alex: Have I told you how much I love having a lawyer for a father?
Justin: I hope so. Because I can help save you from these landmines that will blow up your life.
Alex: Dad, but–
Justin: I know. I know. I know. I know. I know. But really, my strong advice for you is to stay clear of stephanie.
Bonnie: Okay, with all due respect, I think that’s a load of crap.
Eric: Jackass, huh? What happened?
Stephanie: It’s no big deal. Let’s just–let’s just say the guy can’t take a hint.
Eric: He didn’t–
Stephanie: No. He’s not a predator or anything like that. He’s just relentless. He asked me to drinks. He asked me to dinner. He practically asked me to marry him. But I completely blew him off. It’s so not worth talking about. I want to hear about the woman you’re dating.
Eric: [Laughs] It’s new. It’s getting to know you kind of thing, you know, so far, so good, and so– actually, she’s right there. Um, stephanie, this is detective jada hunter, and jada, this is my cousin, stephanie johnson.
Jada: Oh, nice to meet you.
Stephanie: Nice to meet you. Wait, aren’t you marcus hunter’s daughter?
Jada: That’s right.
Stephanie: Steve and kayla johnson are my parents. I was at your eighth birthday part.
Jada: Oh, my god, steph! I didn’t know you lived in salem.
Stephanie: No, I haven’t for a long time. I just moved back to town. It is so great to see you. Hopefully, we can get together soon.
Jada: I’d like that.
Stephanie: I should get going. Have a good night, you guys.
Eric: Yeah, it was good to see you.
Stephanie: You too.
Eric: Such a small world, right?
Eric: Hey, good news, your air conditioner is fixed.
Jada: Great. Thanks.
Eric: Hey. Is everything okay?
Jada: Uh, well, we really didn’t get a chance to talk this morning, since it was obvious that you needed to have a private conversation with your ex-wife.
Chloe: Nicole, I am not trying to be hard on you. I promise. I just think that you are overreacting.
Nicole: Yeah. So you keep telling me.
Chloe: Yeah, well, it’s not really registering with you.
Nicole: Chloe, I– I told you, I’m–I’m–
Chloe: You have concerns, concerns, I know. I keep hearing that. You are concerned when eric and jada went upstairs after their first date, and you called me a few days later concerned because you can’t stop thinking about eric.
Nicole: Yeah, I had a sex dream. Excuse me if I wanted to share it with someone I trust.
Chloe: Well, I’m glad that you did, but you also felt the need to share that with eric, over my very strong objections. I mean, come on, did you even see him?
Nicole: Yes. He came up the stairs with his toolbox while I was talking to jada.
Nicole: And, you know, she went back to her room to–to get dressed.
Chloe: Then what?
Nicole: Well, then– then eric asked me what I was doing there, and I told him I had a dream about him this morning.
Chloe: Oh. Oh, no, no, no.
Nicole: All right, relax. Relax. I chickened out. I chickened out about the sex part. Okay, and I told him that, in the dream, he came over to my house to make sloppy joes.
Chloe: Oh, wow, that might be even worse. Did he buy any of that?
Nicole: I don’t know. I think he did. But then–but then, he mentioned to me that he had a dream also. And in the dream, I knocked on his door to deliver a singing telegram. Oh–oh, my god.
Nicole: Well, if I lied about my dream, what if eric lied about his? What if he had a sex dream too? My asthma felt anything but normal.
Nicole: I mean, what if eric did what I did? What if he had a sex dream and lied about it?
Chloe: Well, I guess it’s possible. But that would be a huge coincidence.
Nicole: Oh. What, a bigger coincidence than us dreaming about each other on the same morning?
Chloe: Definitely. I mean, I dream about the people in my life all the time.
Nicole: Okay, so then it’s more likely for eric to dream of me delivering him a singing telegram than me giving him–
Chloe: Okay, I see your point.
Nicole: Right? It’s not so much of a stretch. It makes sense.
Chloe: Okay, well, I guess there’s really only one way to settle this.
Nicole: Okay, what’s that?
Chloe: Uh, get your phone and call him right now.
Eric: I’m sorry about this morning. I mean, I had no idea nicole was gonna stop by.
Jada: What was she doing here anyway?
Eric: She stopped by to pick up some takeout, you know? And she was here, and so she wanted to just see how I was doing.
Eric: It was just a friendly visit.
Jada: You sure about that?
Eric: I am. But obviously, you’re not.
Jada: No, I’m not. Uh, it’S… you know what, it’s none of my business, but let’s just drop it.
Eric: No, no, no. Let’s not. Please, if there’s something you need to tell me, just say it.
Jada: You know I told nicole that you and I slept together, right? Well, she just seemed a little too interested in that fact. And, I mean, especially since she is married to someone else.
Stephanie: Oh, it’s great to see you.
Rafe: You too.
Stephanie: Oh, that was a very nice, appropriate hug.
Rafe: That was–uh, okay. I don’t follow.
Stephanie: I was just remembering the time that your lookalike, “fake rafe,” got a little handsy.
Rafe: Ah, yeah. Yeah, that guy. He was a real lech.
Stephanie: Sounds like someone I know.
Justin: Excuse me?
Bonnie: I’m sorry, but you’re dead wrong on this one, hon.
Justin: Mm. For trying to save titan from a lawsuit?
Bonnie: Damn straight. You cannot live your life fearing what might happen, honey.
Justin: It’s not fear. It’s common sense.
Bonnie: Oh, please. People these days are so afraid to take a chance that they are losing that one chance at real love. Who cares if someone sues you for sexual harassment?
Justin: How can you say that after what happened with harrison?
Bonnie: That was a completely different situation, justin. And so is what happened to sonny. Alex is not a creep. He’s not a con. He’s a good man with a good heart. And he thinks he found the person he belongs with.
Alex: I don’t even just think it. I know it.
Bonnie: See? There you have it. And if you are lucky enough to find that one person in this world that you belong with, well, you can’t just let that person go. You gotta hang on. What if I didn’t take that chance and kiss you that day? Aren’t you glad I did?
Justin: Of course. But you and I don’t work together. Plus, there’s a big difference between taking a chance and ignoring what stephanie wants.
Bonnie: Well, obviously if it’s a no-go, alex backs off. Look, all I’m saying is, I laid it all on the line, and my reward is I got the best thing that ever happened to me. Who are we to say that your son shouldn’t do the same, hm?
Alex: Have I also told you how much I love having bonnie as a stepmother? Oh, my god.
[Cell phone ringing]
Justin: You can enlighten me after I take this call. Hey, chad. What’s up?
Chad: Justin. I’m sorry. I have bad news.
Rafe: So how long are you in town for?
[Cell phone ringing] Oh, my–I’m sorry. I–yep, I have to take this. Hernandez. What? Yeah, I’ll be right there.
Stephanie: Bad news?
Rafe: Yeah, you could say that. Your cousin, sonny, has been stabbed.
Justin: Thanks, chad. We’ll be right there.
Bonnie: Justin, you’re white as a sheet. What’s wrong?
Justin: Sonny’s been stabbed.
Bonnie: What? Oh, my god, honey!
Alex: Is he okay?
Justin: I don’t know. Chad found him in the office. The paramedics are taking him to the hospital right now.
Alex: I’m gonna grab the car.
Bonnie: Go, go, go, go, go. Oh, honey, honey, honey, honey.
Justin: Oh, my god.
Bonnie: Oh, my god.
[Indistinct radio chatter]
Some days, it felt like asthma was holding me back.
Nicole: I am not calling eric.
Chloe: I know. I was just saying that to make a point, namely that you need to get a grip.
Nicole: Well, thank you, chloe, for all your understanding and support.
Chloe: I’m just trying to make you see that you’re acting like a crazy person.
Nicole: You know what, maybe I–maybe I shouldn’t have come here.
Chloe: No, look, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t have said that to you. I know that having jada in the picture has been really difficult for you. But you have to see what you’re doing. I mean, have you thought of what could happen if jada goes to rafe and tells him how overly interested you are in eric?
Nicole: That is not gonna happen.
Chloe: How do you know that? She came right out and told you that they’d slept together, so she’s clearly very direct. Nicole, I love you. You are my best friend. But I have to be honest with you. Rafe is your husband. Now, I’m not saying that you have to stay in that marriage. But you have to make a decision. You either end your marriage, or you work on it. But whatever choice you make, you have to decide. And you can’t keep obsessing about eric.
Eric: So what did nicole say?
Jada: Nothing. It was–it was just a little awkward.
Eric: Yeah, I can imagine. Listen, we were supposed to have breakfast this morning, but that didn’t happen. And I’d like to make up for that. Have you had dinner yet?
Jada: I haven’t, actually.
Eric: Well, I do have some connections, and I can whip up a grilled cheese, some fries, maybe a milkshake?
Jada: Mmm, that sounds–
[Cell phone ringing] Oh, hold that thought. Hunter. I’ll be right there. Listen, gonna have to take a raincheck on dinner. I gotta get back to work.
Rafe: How’s sonny?
Chad: They just took him to the hospital. I should probably get there.
Rafe: I have a few questions. Promise it’ll just take a minute. Sonny was in the office when you found him?
Chad: Yeah, when I walked in, he was lying right there with a knife in his back.
Rafe: Anyone else here?
Chad: Yeah, someone standing over him.
Chad: Leo stark.
Leo: How could this have happened again? Oh, my god, sonny! Wait. The knife. Holy–it was the same knife!
When moderate to severe
ulcerative colitis persists…
[Soft dramatic music]
Stephanie: I heard about sonny. Are you okay?
Justin: We’re here for you, son. We’re right here! And we love you so much! We love you.
[Rapid beeping] What’s happening? Someone answer me! Please! What’s happening?
Bonnie: Justin, sonny is gonna be okay. Do you hear me? Sonny is gonna be okay.
Justin: Oh, my god.
Bonnie: No. No.
Jada: What have we got?
Rafe: Well, it looks like you were right.
Jada: About what?
Rafe: About leo stark. Chad dimera found him standing here over sonny kiriakis, who had a knife in his back.
Jada: A knife?
Rafe: Yeah. And it looks like we might have found the murder weapon in the abigail dimera case.
Leo: It was the same knife. My hit list. How did this get here? And how did my list get there?
Rafe: And there’s this too.
