[Soft dramatic music]
Xander: Laying out your sunday best?
Sarah: [Laughs] Uh, I have decided to make an appointment with my old department head at the hospital. Hoping to get reinstated there.
Xander: You should be. You didn’t do anything wrong.
Sarah: Well, let’s hope that he and the board feel that way. I have to convince them that everything that I went through didn’t change what kind of doctor I am. Just gonna start getting my old life back.
Xander: Well, if what you want is your old life back, we could finally get married.
Sarah: Mm, you just let me know what day, and I will be there.
Xander: Well, how does today sound?
Jennifer: Jack, I didn’t hear you come in.
Jack: I know. Is something wrong?
Chad: What do you think you’re doing?
Melinda: Looking for paperwork on a case that I’m prosecuting, not that it’s any of your business.
Chad: I’m sorry, the man who murdered my wife and stabbed my best friend is walking around free, and you’re looking through papers?
Melinda: Okay, believe me, I share your frustration, mr. Dimera, but commissioner hernandez is on this case personally.
Chad: He is?
Melinda: That’s right, and i just found out that he knows where leo stark is hiding out.
Chad: For real?
Melinda: He should be putting mr. Stark in handcuffs as we speak.
Rafe: I checked the parking lot and the entire building. Leo was gone long before we got her.
Sloan: I don’t understand. He promised he’d wait for me.
Rafe: Did he? Because I’m guessing that he knew I was coming, and that’s why he left in such a hurry.
Sloan: I don’t know how he would know that. It’s not like I tipped him off.
Rafe: Stop lying to me. Stop lying, because you were the only one who knew. You double-crossed me, counselor.
Sloan: What? No, I didn’T. I–I wouldn’T.
Rafe: Stop lying. Now where the hell is leo?
Sonny: Are you a nurse?
Leo: Bitch, please. It’s me.
Leo: Thank you.
Sonny: Why are you dressed like a nurse?
Leo: It’s not a fashion statement, I’ll tell you that. It was the only way I could get in here to see you.
Sonny: What is–what am i doing here? What happened?
Leo: You don’t remember somebody stabbing you in the back?
Sonny: Oh, my god.
Leo: Think, sonny, I’m counting on you. I need you to tell me who did this to you.
Sonny: It was…
Leo: Come on, out with it.
Sonny: It was you.
Male announcer: Like sands through the hourglass, so are the “days of our lives.”
Leo: No, no, no! You are confused, and for once, it’s semi forgivable. Just take some deep breaths and think hard.
Sonny: You snuck in here so you could finish me off.
Leo: Sonny, I did not stab you, and I am not here to hurt you.
Sonny: [Groans] But you were there.
Leo: Yes, yes I came to your office saying that I wanted to declare a truce between us, and you agreed, sort of, and then I left. I only came back because I needed my parking ticket validated. It is criminal what titan charges for parking.
Sonny: More criminal than trying to kill me?
Leo: Sweetheart, when I came back, you were on the floor with a knife in your back. Somebody came in after I left the first time, and that someone stabbed you. Please, sonny, my life is on the line here. Don’t tell me you don’t remember who that someone was.
Melinda: There is no doubt in my mind that leo stark murdered your wife, and then he made an attempt on sonny kiriakis’ life too. So you can be confident that his prosecution begins the moment commissioner hernandez brings mr. Stark in here in handcuffs.
Chad: Can I hang around? I’d like to see that with my own two eyes.
Melinda: Yeah, I don’t have a problem with that.
Chad: If it is leo, what happens to gwen rizczech, his partner in crime.
Melinda: Rest easy. She’s still in custody.
Gwen: Not anymore.
Xander: Come on, we’d be an old married couple by now if it wasn’t for gwen.
Sarah: Mm, I still can’t believe that she tried to make it seem like I killed abigail. She’s still obsessed with you. I hope you know that.
Xander: Yeah, well, let’s prove to her and whole rest of the world that she can’t keep us apart anymore. I mean, after everything we’ve been through, I don’t want to wait another minute.
Xander: And it’s not like gwen can get in our way now. She’s locked up.
Sarah: Would be a shame to waste such an opportunity.
Xander: So is that a yes? Can I get your mom on the phone?
Sarah: Could we maybe put it off for a little longer?
Sarah: Mm, I was just kind of hoping we could get a jump on the wedding thing.
This is the sound of nature breathing.
Jennifer: A lot of things are wrong, jack. You know it as well as I do.
Jack: I’m talking about those pills in your hand.
Jennifer: I’m glad you didn’t see me going through doug and julie’s medicine cabinet trying to find the empty one. I had to lie through my teeth to get the pharmacist to refill it.
[Sighs] These? I’ve been having headaches. Kayla gave me prescription-strength ibuprofen.
Jack: You didn’t tell me about the headaches.
Jennifer: Well, you’ve had enough going on.
Jack: Well, I’ll just get you some water so you can take one of those.
Jennifer: Oh, no, you don’t have to. Just seeing you makes me feel much better.
Jennifer: I don’t need a pill.
Jack: [Sighs] Ah. Jennifer, there’s something I have to tell you.
Jennifer: Well, from the look on your face, I’d say it’s not good. What now?
Jack: I hired a lawyer to represent gwen.
Melinda: I don’t know how you’ve managed this, but don’t go anywhere.
Chad: How’d you get out of your cell?
Melinda: There’s not a single officer in the squad room, and a prisoner has escaped.
Gwen: I did not escape.
Chad: Yeah, then how’d you get here?
Gwen: Sonny kiriakis was stabbed last night, and I was locked up, so my lawyer convinced the judge that there is evidence of a connection between abigail’s death and sonny’s stabbing and that what leo said to the police was just to frame me for something that he did. You let leo go to go after sonny. Well done. You know, you might want to advise the kiriakis family to sue the da’s office.
Melinda: Mr. Stark’s guilt does not prove your innocence, so don’t leave town.
Chad: Where are you going?
Melinda: To get answers from a more reliable source than her, and then I’m gonna fire the ada that blew this hearing this morning.
Chad: You must be feeling very pleased with yourself.
Gwen: I’m free because I’m innocent, and leo will be arrested, and then you will see that he was lying about me.
Rafe: How did you signal leo that I was coming with you?
Sloan: You heard my end of the phone call. I didn’t say a word about you. He must have figured it out on his own. You’re wasting your time doing that.
Rafe: Do you remember when i told you if you didn’t help me find leo, I was gonna charge you as an accessory? You are about two minutes from being in handcuffs.
Sloan: Oh, go for it. It’s a bogus charge, and it’s never gonna stick.
Rafe: It’s never gonna stick? You’re about to find out how sticky I can make things for you.
Sonny: Well, if you’re not trying to kill me, why are you still holding on to the call button?
Leo: Try being accused of murder sometime. It makes a person very cautious.
[Sighs] Look, sonny, I knew what I was risking by coming here, but i basically can’t trust anyone right now, not even my lawyer. You are the only one who can get me out of this jam
Sonny: You can’t make me say what you want to hear.
Leo: Remember that truce I mentioned? Go back to that conversation. Use your second most precious muscle and concentrate.
Sonny: I said we’d never be friends… but we’d leave each other alone. Something like that.
Leo: And then what?
Sonny: And then you left.
Leo: What ese?
Sonny: Then I sat down at my desk. A few minutes later, I had to get something from a filing cabinet, and my back was to the door, and then I heard a noise. I went to turn around, but then something hit me in the back, and I had, like, this… searing pain. And then that’s it. It just goes black.
Leo: You didn’t get a look, not even a little peek?
Sonny: I can’t clear you, leo. It could’ve been you.
Leo: Who it was is the person who is trying to frame me. If I did this, you think I would’ve left my list behind for the cops to find?
Sonny: Sorry, what list?
Leo: Oh. Okay, don’t take this the wrong way, but I made an enemies list.
Sonny: Oh, my god.
Leo: You were at the top, you and abigail and brady and chloe and everyone who put in the time and trouble to bust up craig and me.
Sonny: You had to make a list? You couldn’t just keep it in your head?
Leo: It was satisfying, all right? But somebody found that list, and they brought it to your office. Then they stabbed you, left it on your desk, and they crossed off your name and abigail’s name. I did not do that. Well, I did cross off abigail’S.
Sonny: You killed abigail?
Leo: Not because I killed her. Because she was dead, which does make a person less of a threat, and that’s not the point.
Sonny: Then what is your fricking point?
Leo: Somebody is trying to make me look like I’m a fricking serial killer! My asthma felt anything but normal.
Jennifer: So you hired a lawyer for gwen without talking to me first?
Jack: It was a kneejerk reaction. I’m so sorry. God knows you’d never do anything so major without telling me. But gwen couldn’t have stabbed sonny, so maybe she’s not lying when she said she didn’t kill abigail, and I couldn’t let her go back to prison for something that she didn’t do.
Jennifer: I guess not.
Jack: Jennifer… I made gwen a part of our lives. I asked you and abigail to accept her, and you both did. When I believed that gwen killed abigail… I didn’t even know how to face you. But you were understanding then, and I’m asking you to be understanding now.
Jennifer: So you feel that leo only pointed the finger at gwen to divert attention from himself?
Jack: He set her up, and I bought it. Everybody did. Look, she’s no saint, obviously, but she’s– she deserves a whole lot better than she got from me.
Jennifer: And you feel the need to make up for it.
Jack: That’s why I did what I did today. Please, jennifer, tell me that it’s okay. The last thing I want to do is make all of this harder for you than it already is.
Gwen: You must be wishing that my father left me in jail.
Chad: Something like that.
Gwen: I told you the truth when you came to see me. I didn’t kill abigail. Leo set me up.
Chad: Now don’t play the martyr. You can’t pull it off. I wouldn’t put it past you and leo to point the finger at each other just to muddy the case against either one of you.
Gwen: Okay, you believe that at your peril.
Chad: What peril?
Gwen: Do you remember, I told you that leo had made a list of all of his enemies. Now abigail is dead, sonny is in intensive care, and they were both on that list, and so are you. The da has put leo out on the streets at my expense. What if leo decides to come after you next?
Leo: I have been cutting you some slack because of the condition you’re in, but I don’t have all the time in the world. Are you gonna tell the cops I did this to you?
Leo: I have laid this out for you in a very logical way, and you’re looking at this call button like it’s a lifeline.
Sonny: Gee, I wonder why. I regain consciousness, and the first thing I see is you dressed like a nurse from an R.L. Stine book. How do I know you don’t have a weapon in that padded bra?
Leo: If you remember last night, you remember that you and I kind of had a moment. Your big brother alex had just threatened to kill me, and I was scared. I begged you to tell him that you and I were okay. I practically got down on my knees, and I don’t do that for just anybody. Well, actually, I do, but not for apologies. Why would I put myself through all that and then bump you off? I would’ve cut to the chase and saved myself a lot of humiliation. Please, sonny, please tell me you get what I’m saying here.
Nurse: Mr. Kiriakis, you’re awake. No matter who you are,
Nurse: I have to let your doctor know that you’re making such good progress.
Leo: No need, hon. I’ve already done that. Doctor is on his way. Right, mr. Kiriakis?
Sloan: Straight to voicemail. Anything else I can do to prove that leo and i aren’t in cahoots.
Rafe: Okay, fine. Maybe he got spooked like you said, and maybe you set me up. All I know is that I was wrong to trust you because now leo stark is back on the streets, and my investigation is back to square one!
[Line trilling] Yeah, any word on the apb? Damn. No, I lost stark. Listen, set up a quadrant search using my location as a starting point. Okay. No, I’ll alert the da.
Melinda: [Sighs] Here, your personal affects. Everything you signed a receipt for is in there. Oh, except for the sarah mask. We’re keeping that as a souvenir.
Gwen: Oh, you have to let me go because you took the word of a born liar. You know what? Do me a favor, darling. How about you do a decent job this time? Get justice for this man and for his children. Nobody should have to suffer the way that they did.
[Soft dramatic music]
Gwen: [Sighs] Thank god this bloody nightmare is finally over for me.
Chad: Talk about a get out of jail free card.
Gwen: I see this as a sign to take hold of a new lease on life. But right now, there’s somebody that I need to thank.
Jennifer: I guess I understand why you’d do this for gwen. In your shoes, I’d probably do the same thing.
Jack: Thank you. Thank you.
[Doorbell rings] I– um…
Xander: Um, may we come in?
Jack: Yes, of course. Of course, please. Uh, jennifer, look who’s here.
Sarah: I hope we’re not intruding.
Jennifer: Oh, no, of course you’re not.
Xander: Obviously we know how bad things are for you right now. We just–I don’t know. That’s kind of why we were here. We thought maybe we could pick up your day a bit.
Jennifer: Oh, well, that would be wonderful.
Jack: So what’s up?
Xander: Jack, we’re finally doing it. We’re getting married today.
Xander: We were hoping that the two of you might be our witnesses.
Jack: That–we’d be honored.
Jennifer: We definitely would, oh!
Jennifer: It’s so wonderful to see people getting their lives back on track.
Jack: Thank you, sarah. So when and where?
Sarah: My mom is meeting us at city hall.
Xander: Yeah, we didn’t feel right asking her to use her house because everything with sonny.
Jennifer: Oh, why don’t you get married here?
Jennifer: Yes. This is your family home.
Xander: Oh, well, we wouldn’t want to put you out.
Jack: You’re not, you’re not.
Jennifer: You’re definitely not. It would be a blessing to have a cause for celebration again.
Sarah: Okay, yeah, let’s do it.
Jack: All right!
Jack: Wonderful, yes.
Jennifer: I cannot believe this. You look so beautiful. Oh, you look so handsome. Oh, my gosh. Some days, it felt like asthma was holding me back.
Sonny: Nurse leona here is right. Uh, he called– she called my doctor, and he is on his way.
Nurse: Then it looks like you’re in good hands.
[Soft dramatic music]
Leo: You believe me, don’t you?
Sonny: I better not regret this.
Leo: If you believe I didn’t do this to you, then you also believe I’m being framed.
Sonny: I do. And whoever it is, they seem to hate both of us.
Sloan: Did the da chew you out?
Rafe: Oh, yeah.
Rafe: Okay, so leo took off about 45 minutes ago. He probably took oak street because it has the lightest traffic. Oh, my god, I’m such a moron.
Sloan: Wow, finally you say something I agree with.
Rafe: You know what else is on oak street? University hospital. Sonny’s in the icu there.
Sloan: Hernandez! Ugh. You still have my keys!
Maggie: Oh, let’s hope the third time is the charm. This wedding is long overdue.
Xander: Couldn’t agree more.
Maggie: So where is sarah?
Xander: Well, she said she needed to freshen up. I mean, I thought she looked perfect as she was.
Maggie: Well, maybe she wants to make a bit of an entrance. That’s the bride’s right, mm.
Jennifer: Aren’t these beautiful? We can put them all around.
Maggie: Okay, well, let me help you.
Jennifer: Oh, great.
Jack: I haven’t seen jennifer smile in a long time. Thanks for making us a part of this day.
Xander: Oh, you’re my mate. Wouldn’t be right without you here. I wanted to ask you the last time we tried to do this, but, you know, it was too soon.
[Sighs] What a bad day that turned out to be.
Jack: The only reason sarah was arrested was because of gwen. I am so sorry for all of that.
Xander: Hey, that wasn’t any of your doing, jack.
Jack: About gwen, um…
Xander: What about her?
Jack: [Sighs] Never mind. It can wait.
Maggie: Well, I wasn’t expecting to see you again today. How’s it going?
Jennifer: Uh, I feel much better. Thank you so much for talking with me.
Maggie: Oh, anytime. You’re the one who had the strength to throw out those pills. That was a very big deal. What did jack say when you told him?
Jennifer: I haven’t had the chance to talk with him about it yet. There’s been so much going on.
Maggie: Huh. So what? What’s been going on?
Maggie: Oh, hi.
Jennifer: Look at you!
Maggie: You look lovely and so happy.
Sarah: Well, for a while there, I didn’t think that this kind of happiness was possible for me anymore.
Jennifer: We made you a bouquet. Are you ready?
Sarah: Yes. Xan, my baby. What do you say? You want to get married?
Xander: I say yes.
Maggie: Oh. Yes, yes, yes, yes.
[Muffled speech and laughter]
My moderate to severe plaque psoriasis…
Xander: All right.
Jennifer: Yay! Oh, my goodness.
Gwen: What’s going on?
Sarah: Yes, good.
Gwen: Maybe I should just go.
Maggie: Oh, wonderful. Dearly beloved, we are gathered today to join xander and sarah in marriage. Marriage is an honorable state, one that should not be–
Xander: Maggie, um, would you mind if we just skip straight to the good bits, and if we could avoid the whole “does anyone object?” Part, that’d be great.
Maggie: Gotcha. Okay, you and sarah, um, have prepared your vows a year ago. Well, now you get a chance to say them out loud. Why don’t you start?
Xander: I can’t remember my speech. I went over it and over it and over it, and I just– my mind has gone completely blank.
Maggie: Well, then, you know, why don’t you just say what’s in your heart right now?
Xander: Right. Your just… you are the best thing that has ever happened to me.
[Sighs] Being loved by someone like you, I… it’s more than i ever dreamed of. And when I thought I’d lost you, I… it was like nothing mattered anymore. And I did the sort of things that I used to do before I knew you because i decided that, well, happiness must not be on the cards for me because you are my happiness, sarah, and then a miracle happened because of abigail. You came back to me, and now I’m gonna spend the rest of my life taking care of you and being so very grateful for that miracle.
[Chuckles] I feel like I’ve been entrusted with this wonderful secret ’cause I know the real you, the xander you were born to be before life made you bitter and angry, before I knew that I loved you, you became my friend, my crude, pushy, unfailingly loyal friend, and I found myself just wanting to get to know you better, and something told me that if I did, it would be the gift of a lifetime, and it was. The night before our first wedding, I remember thinking that I had gotten everything I’d ever wanted. What an awful journey we went after that, right?
[Laughs] I thought that I lost you forever, but here we are, and I get to spend the rest of my life with the love of my life, my husband. That’s you.
Maggie: Oh, that is so beautiful, both of you. And now do you, xander cook, take sarah horton to be your wedded wife, to cherish her in love and in friendship, in strength and in weakness, in success and in disappointment, and will you love her faithfully today, tomorrow, and as long as the two of you shall live?
Xander: I do.
Maggie: And do you, sarah horton, take xander cook to be your wedded husband, to cherish him in love and in friendship, in strength and in weakness, in success and in disappointment, and will you love him faithfully today, tomorrow, and for as long as the two of you shall live?
Sarah: I do.
Maggie: Tell me you have the rings.
Xander: Oh, no, I do. I do. I do. I definitely do.
Xander: I’ll give you this one.
Maggie: Well, now I’m overjoyed to finally pronounce you husband and wife. You may kiss the bride!
Sonny: Oh, my god, I hope I’m not making a huge mistake trusting you.
Leo: You think I’m lying? Still?
Leo: Well, gwen’s in jail. Who else would’ve done this to me
Leo: Girl, if I knew the answer to that, you think I’d be here? I’d be spilling my guts to salem’s finest.
[Phone rings] Ugh, I have to take this.
Sonny: You know more than you’re telling me.
Leo: Hey, sloany.
Sloan: I am stuck at this dive motel, and you’re not here.
Leo: Sorry, I can’t trust anyone anymore. I thought it was a trap.
Leo: That’s exactly what it was. The police commissioner said he’d arrest me if I didn’t help him out.
Leo: Traitor! Ever hear of a malpractice suit?
Sloan: Shut up and listen to me.
Sloan: I better not get disbarred for this. Where are you?
Leo: Why would I tell you anything about my location?
Sarah: Because commissioner hernandez thinks you’re at the hospital to finish off sonny kiriakis. Do not go anywhere near that place. He’s headed there now.
Leo: What? When did he leave?
Sarah: He should be there any minute.
Xander: What the bloody hell are you doing here?
Gwen: I’m sorry. I’m sorry, I– I didn’t mean to intrude. I–
Xander: What did you mean to do?
Gwen: [Sighs] If I’d have known that this was going on–
Xander: No, no, why aren’t you in jail?
Gwen: My new lawyer convinced the judge to release me. They’re looking for leo now. I– I’m sorry. I really didn’t mean to ruin your wedding. I can see now that you both are meant to be together.
Xander: No thanks to you.
Gwen: I–I just wanted to come here and say thank you for having my back yet again. God knows I’ve done nothing to deserve it. Right, I’m gonna leave now. Just go back to your celebrations. I had no intention of hurting abigail that night. It was just my desperate attempt to get sarah away from xander. And one more thing. I didn’t kill laura. Her death really was an accident, and I told abigail that, too, and she believed me. I hope you will too.
Jennifer: I’ll have to think about it.
Gwen: [Sighs] I wish you a world of happiness.
[Soft dramatic music]
Sarah: Well, at least she didn’t show up in time to object.
Xander: She’s gone now, hopefully for good.
Flo, you’re here.
[Soft dramatic music]
Gwen: What the hell is this? What’s happened here?
Gwen: [Sighs] Thank god it’s still here.
Xander: Well, so gwen told us to enjoy this moment, and that’s exactly what i intend to do. This is the first day of my life with the missus, and I intend to celebrate the hell out of it.
Maggie: Oh, I like that.
Jack: That sounds really good.
Sarah: My goodness.
Jennifer: Oh, here he is.
Sarah: Thank you.
Jack: And you. For you.
Maggie: Ah, thank you, sir.
Jack: For you, my darling.
Jennifer: Thank you.
Jack: All right, it’s time for a toast. To mr. And mrs. Xander cook.
Maggie: Here, here!
Sarah: Cheers, cheers.
Maggie: Oh, look at him!
[Laughs] He needs more.
Rafe: Excuse me, I need an update on sonny kiriakis.
Nurse: He’s regained consciousness.
Rafe: Oh, that’s great. When was the last time someone checked in on him?
Nurse: There’s another nurse with him right now.
Rafe: Okay, what’s her name?
Nurse: I think mr. Kiriakis called her leona.
Rafe: And how well do you know her?
Nurse: I don’T. I’ve never seen her before.
Rafe: Oh, my god.
Rafe: Hey, leo was here?
Sonny: Yeah, you just missed him.
Rafe: Oh, my god.
Nurse: Nurse leona, the commissioner of police would like to talk to you.
Leo: Sorry, doll. I’m on my break.
