Recap written by Michele and Cheryl
Steve went to the interrogation room to see Orpheus. He knew one of them would come by to see him. Steve was willing to give him one chance to tell him what he did to Kayla, Kate and Marlena. He clicked a pen in Orpheus’ face. Orpheus made fun of him for choosing that as a weapon. Steve knew if he hit a major artery, he would instantly die. He said he would die if he didn’t tell him what he did to the women. Chloe arrived at the station to ask Shawn to testify that Brady didn’t kill Philip. Shawn said he couldn’t do that. She was upset because Kristen was going to win again. Kayla was in Marlena’s room and assured Stephanie that she would be okay. She started coughing, but told her there was nothing to worry about. Marlena told her that she and John decided not to tell their children what happened too. Marlena started coughing while she was talking to a patient on the phone. Kayla told her that she shouldn’t be working. Marlena wanted to keep herself distracted from the custody hearing. Kayla didn’t understand how any judge could give Kristen custody of a child. Kayla was worried about Steve’s visit with Orpheus. Steve kept trying to get Orpheus to talk to him, but Shawn came in the room. He stopped Steve from going after Orpheus. Steve walked out of the room.
Belle questioned John about the type of father Brady is. John ended up thinking about what Orpheus did to Marlena, Kayla and Kate. He became emotional and realized someone asked him about the type of father Brady was. He talked about Kristen’s crimes, but the judge stopped him. John let the judge know that he mentioned Kristen’s crimes to show that Brady puts Rachel first. John got upset when he mentioned Kristen stabbing Victor, but he controlled himself. Kristen began her turn and questioned John’s competency since Marlena went on a crime spree for months. She brought up how Marlena was possessed. She wanted to know where Marlena was.
