You’re looking for a job with spec? Yeah, we, we talked about this, remember? But then we got sidetracked when you realized Jennifer was the one who played Dan Gwen with her car. Just keep your voice down. Yeah. Sorry. I guess if I’m gonna work in the newspaper, bier needs to be a bit more discreet. But like I said, I, not to start as an executive, just wherever you can use.

Sorry, Jack. What’d you say? I’m afraid my answer is no.

You can’t tell anyone you saw me. No one can know that I’m here. Why? What’s going on? And what’s with the get up? I’ve been vanished from Salem. Here. Sit up. Mothers wanna. God, I’ve been calling, texting her for hours. No response. I’m starting to get really worried. I’m so sorry. Do you have any idea where she might be?

No, I don’t. All I know is that Eugene Damara forced her to leave town.

What are you doing here?

If my dad or your brother did put Ralph up in doing something to ste, there’s gotta be a trail, right? And maybe they’re still in contact with him. Worth looking into. I already tried hacking these email accounts. He’s got it well protected. Well, if it’s der, how maybe. All it would take is any other high level to merit password.

I could work my way in through back the, I don’t have a high enough clearance level for that, but maybe I could get into my dad’s. I asked you a question son, and I’d like an answer now. Uh, Stephan Beam to give me our divorce papers. That’s the errand you had to run. When I was leaving the building, I ran into my attorney and he informed me the papers were ready.

So you rushed over here to personally deliver them? I did. But imagine you’re anxious to get married. Just as I’m anxious to cut ties with Gabby. So yeah, I got here as soon as I could. Then I assumed their son. Not yet,

but as soon as they are, our marriage will be over and the two of you will be free to live your happily ever after,

like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.

Xander, look, I wanna help you. I do, but I, I just don’t think that bringing you onto the paper at this time is a good idea. I need to explain, Jack. I I get it. You do. Of course. I’m just not good enough. And look, I know I have some of the skills I might need to help you, but I like the integrity, the, the decency, the ethics.

You know, if you need someone to clean out your gutters or smuggle some diamonds, I’m your man. But to sully the hallowed holes of the spectator by hiring a scandal like me, I mean, you’ve been insult to the entire third estate, wouldn’t it? Fourth estate, huh? The press is known as the fourth estate. I see.

I top of everything else, I’m ignorant. I mean, just forget it was a stupid idea. It was not, it was not a stupid idea. Look, my decision has nothing to do with you and your, your character, your, your capabilities. And as a matter of fact, it is. It’s not about you at all. And then who is it about when

vanished from som? By whom? EJ Dara. Yet you are still here? Yeah, but he doesn’t know that. Thank God. So this visit, it needs to stay between us. Fine. I know I’m gonna regret asking this. What did you do to anger EJ so badly that you are banished from Salem?

I know that. Look, I saw it every time I caught you with your hand in the cookie jar. Well, can I say I have a, uh, wicked suites? If, if you are after suites, you’d be at your sister’s bakery, not sculpting around my office. Now tell me, Johnny, what have I caught you doing now, son? I’m losing my patience. Okay?

Okay. I will, uh, I’ll tell you. Well, I am here.

I came here to apologize for what? I’ve had some time to think and I realized that you were right about Ava.

Go on. She did lie to us. She just wanted to scam our family, and, and it was right after Uncle Jake died and I, I, it, I believed that she really was grieving and I wanted to comfort her, you know, felt good to be needed. None of it was real. I tried to tell you, son, I know,

I’m really sorry, dad. I, I, I feel like a total idiot. For buying her act. You really did care about her, didn’t you? I thought she cared about me too. The truth is she never cared about me. She was using me to get to you, which is what you said she was doing all along and you were right. You were a thousand percent right.

So, EJ is furious with you because you faked a marriage to Jake so that you could inherit his shares. It was Gabby’s idea. Oh God can’t believe she convinced you to put a wedding ring on a dead man’s finger. A man that I loved. Look, Jake and I were going to be married, and if he hadn’t been gunned down in cold blood, we would be married right now looking.

He proposed to me right before he got shot. I mean, look, we even picked out our engagement ring. I know, because that is the same engagement ring that Xander gave to me.

What does Gwen have to do with me working at the Spectator? Well, as I told you today, I’m checking her out of the hospital, which is wonderful. I’m sure she’s thrilled. She is, but she’s also worried. I mean, she doesn’t have a job. She doesn’t have a place to live. I, I’ve told her she can come home with me and I, I offered her a position at the paper.

So, I mean, it’s a huge operation. There must be more than one opening. There is perfect. And you can hire both of us. Sander, As much as I’d like to, I can’t. And why? Because if I did, my newsroom would turn into a fight club.

You hit ej, but And he’s not making you leave town too. I already left town. I live in Seattle. I don’t remember. Right. Sorry. I, uh, I got distracted. Picturing you going all Anderson sofa, . You’re into mma. Yeah, who is it? And just when I thought I couldn’t like you anymore. So what happened after you popped dj?

Uh, he was going to have me arrested. But your brother stopped him. He was there. Yeah. I tracked DJ down in his office. Yeah, when my brother is currently working as his right hand man. So why would he go to bat for you? He didn’t. He did? For you? For me. It’s to show his gratitude for what I did over the summer in Hong Kong.

You don’t have to be modest trip. You can say it. You saved my life.

You and your brother, Joey. While it is something that we will both be very proud of, especially because we both think you’re. Which we made embarrassingly obvious as I recall. Yeah, yeah. You kind of did. Well anyway. That’s why Leera my defense, maybe he really does care about me. It surprises you. No, it’s just am.

It doesn’t take me seriously. You know, he doesn’t see me as a capable, ambitious adult to him. I’m still the little girl in pigtails who followed him around when we were kids. More pigtails? No, not by choice.

I don’t know. Trip. Maybe I’d have an easier time if I just conformed a little more. I traded in the hoodie and sneakers for suit? No, when they don’t do that. Don’t change for anyone. You are amazing exactly the way you are.

Well, if I’m so amazing, what does my brother refuse to gimme a job?

This all looks pretty straightforward. I think it’d be best if you had a witness for your signature. I’d be happy to be that witness. So, which one of you wants to sign first?

I do.

I cannot wait to be rid of. Once and for all.

Fight Club. You’re saying Gwen and I are gonna be brawling at the office? Not, not literally, but tensions can run high and it is newspapers so there can be long hours and late nights. Wait, you’re not worried I’m gonna cheat on my wife. Are you? Of course not. Good cuz I love Sarah with all my heart and you know, I care about Gwen but his, for anything romantic, that ship has sailed.

I’m over her. Of course. I know. I’m just not sure that Gwen is over you.

Please, please tell me you are not still carrying a torch for that bozo Sanda. Why would you say that? Well, because when I brought up your former engagement ring, you got a little annoyed. I did not. Mm. Anyway, we’re talking about your love life here, not mine.

Tell me, tell me about this scam that you ran on ej. There’s not much more to tell. I was outta my mind with grief and Gabby took advantage of it. She really ambushed you here in the hospital. Yeah. Jake’s body wasn’t even cold and she is pitching me on all the clash that I’m gonna make if I pretend to be his.

The proverbial cat is now out of the bag. EJ found out that the marriage wasn’t real. He’s in and now she’s out. Well, that’s not your fault. She still owes you. So how about you take your problems to her instead of with me? Oh, because Gabby’s got problems over own. Well, what are you waiting for?

You know, you might be alive again, but you’re dead to me now.

I don’t care what Ralph says. If you don’t have heart anymore, Your turn, Lee.

All right. Well Lee, she’s all yours and you are free to marry the man you love following. You’re free to chase your precious Chloe Lean. You know, I’m gonna go ahead and file these. Because if you filed them, I wouldn’t want their authenticity to be questioned. See, I don’t want there to be any doubt that this marriage is finally and permanently.


I thought you already worked for Damara. Yeah. In the ass end of nowhere, Alaska. Right. I mean, nothing against the state. Really good people. It’s just. It’s not my home and I hate the weather, and so I want Lee to get me transferred here. Give me a promotion, which I totally deserve. That can mean I’d show him up.

None. The shins can’t have that. God forbid, little sister out Shine the first warrant. Son, this sounds pretty sexist. That one’s very sexist. But sadly, it’s still a man’s world. Well, look, I saw that move. You did the get away from my dad in Hong Kong. You can go toe-to-toe with any man. But if what I did over there, what you and Joey did, if that offended you in any way offended me.

Of course not. You’ve saved my life and I’m so grateful. I hope I made that clear and didn’t I just read about you saving another woman’s life by the rowing yourself at a window. Yeah, I guess I’m a little old school like that, always wanting to be the nine shining. Guess I’m a little ashamed to admit. I find that kind of hot.

Oh, relax Lance. A lot. I’m just checking out your hand.

Must have been some punch. There was actually more than one. Really? Who else did you hit? I am Wendy,

you all right? Yeah, I’m fine. Just, uh, thinking about everything a did to me, it was like getting punched in the face. Not painful, huh? I just, I, I, I can’t believe that I defended. You know, I even after she cop to defrauding our family, I actually told you that it didn’t matter to me that she lied to us, that she stole from us.

And I, I don’t know what else to say other than that woman is very persuasive. Hmm. And you and my son, Uh, less so. Excuse me. Sorry Johnny, but I’m having a little trouble believing this. Mayor Culper of yours. When I told Ava to leave Salem, you looked at me with sheer hatred and swore that you’d make me pay.

So I have a temper. Wonder who I got that from? Your mother. But the charm that you use to cloak what you are really up to, that that you inherited from yours truly, and despite all of my demer dna. Still managed to get played by Vitale. You say that, but I wonder if you believe it or if you are the one playing me.

What’s going on? Uh, I was just asking your brother how he ped up his knuckles. Uh, you okay? Yeah. No, it’s nothing. Good. Well, in that case, Wendy, it’s so good to see you. Okay. Wow. It’s, uh, good to see you too. Joey Trip told me about your mom. We’re really glad she’s okay. Thanks. Yeah, no, we’re all incredibly.

So what are you doing in Salem? Oh, I was hoping to get a job here, but my brother’s paying a total to, Oh, I can relate to that. Are you hilarious? Where are you staying? I’m still sort of figuring that out. There’s no way I’m crashing with Lee, but I can’t really afford a hotel. Oh, you can stay with us.

Did Gwen tell. That she still has feelings for me.

Uh, Gwe Gwen. No, no, no, no. Actually it’s just, uh, just an impression I got Say no more. Your daughter has to come first. But for the record, Jack, if you did take us both on. I’ve never lead Gwen on and Gwen’s determined to get her life back on track too, and I wanna support her in that, help her make better decisions than she has in the past.

So, you know, support her to, to learn from her mistakes so that she doesn’t make them again. Oh, come on Gwen. I’m not gonna ask you to do anything that you haven’t done before. That’s what I’m afraid of. So what is it exactly that you want me to do? Help me get back at ej. What do you mean get back at ej?

As you know, I am not the kind of person who responds well to threats. EJ needs to pay. He needs to pay for thinking that he can threaten me and run me outta Salem. All right, so here’s the deal. I just need you to get close. Get him like you, and then No, no. I’m not going to infiltrate the Dara family. I’ve done that once before.

It turned out to be a bloody disaster. I’m not asking you to infiltrate anything. I am just asking you to cozy up to ej. I can’t. You can’t. While I certainly can’t because if he finds out that I am still here, he’s gonna have me arrested and thrown in Statesville. Oh. Oh, you remember Statesville? Yeah. That place that you begged me to break you out of and I.

No questions asked. That was only for a few hours and that is also because you threw me under the bloody bus. Okay. Well that is not the point is it? The point is, I was the only person who could help you back then. Just like you are the only person who can help me. No, we are even, and I don’t have to help you with anything.

Okay. You want me to beg? I’ll beg. I may not have a husband or a home or a job, but I’ve still got my dignity and I refuse to tuck my tail between my legs and run because ej Dara told me to, I don’t care if he hates me, that he will not disrespect me, and I would go after him myself if I could in a heartbeat, But I can.

I need help. I need your help. Come on Gwen. What do you have to lose?

Look, I am admitting to you that you’re right. Why is that so hard to accept? It’s never happened before. Like I said, I’ve had some time to cool off and reflect. And I came around on Ava, came around on something else too. Oh, you’ve always said that my place is here at Damara. You are right.

After years fighting me, you’ve just suddenly changed your mind. This, this whole thing with Ava has, has clarified a lot for me. You know, I. About loyalty, legacy, what I want in life, and that’s to work here with me. Guy. I know I’ve resisted it for a lot of years, but maybe to use your words. It’s time for me to grow up, learn the family business.

What are you working on these days anyway? Oh, dad, you’re uh, computer slacked. What’s your password?

Oh, it looks like someone else also forgot. We live in Seattle. No, I don’t get it inside. Joke. Oh, you guys have inside jokes now. That’s awesome. Oh, don’t worry about it. It’s not that funny. Okay, so when are you guys uh, headed back home? As soon as I hear from my mom Sure. Hasn’t been able to reach her. She all right?

I think so, but I just wanna make sure and then we can head back west. Well, I mean, we don’t have to leave quite yet. Oh, Kayla’s better now. I just assumed she’s not even outta the hospital. I think we should at least stick around and help out. And if Wendy’s gonna be staying with us, then well, I wouldn’t wanna get in the way.

Oh, my parents have a, a townhouse, plenty of space. Two guest bedrooms, which we’re sharing one and Stephanie has the other. Right. So you can move in with Steph and Wendy come back with me. Oh, well, you’s know step way more than I do, so it actually makes more sense if you move with Steph and when mugs with me.

Or I could just fuck with stuff, Dude. Why are you making this so difficult? I’m just trying to do what’s best for Wendy. So am I guys. I appreciate the offer, but I’m just gonna go find my own. Nice going dummy. What did I do guys? I offered Wendy a perfectly good option. Oh really? Cuz I don’t think her idea of perfect is rooming with you.

Okay. Time out. As entertaining as this is, you’re gonna have to take it someplace else because I have work to do. So see ya.

I seriously get out of here. Go.

Don’t, no hard feelings. Never. You my best mate. Well, thank you. Thank you for under. Now you’re saying you’re a couple of months behind in your bills that they’re in, correct? Yeah. But to stop the bleeding, Sarah and I decided to move back in with Uncle Bick and Maggie. Temporarily. Not our first choice, obviously, but it’ll help.

All right. Well, how about this? I’ll lend you a couple of bucks until you find something. It’s a lovely offer, Jack, but no, I’ll figure it out. I always do.

What have I got to lose? Only everything that matters to me. Quinn, you already lost Sander. I’m talking about my father right now. My, my main focus is being the daughter that he deserves. You know, recovering from being slammed into by a motor vehicle, I’m doing much better. Thank you for asking. I’m glad you’re doing all right.

Any idea when they’re gonna let you outta here today? Jack has, uh, invited me to stay with him. He’s even getting me a job at the newspaper. . I’m nicely done. No, Stop. This is not a con. By some miracle, he’s given me a chance to do things right and there is no way I’m gonna muck it up. So whatever this scheme is that you are cooking up with ej, I’m out.

Well, you’re really turning me down.

I have root for you though. I hope you do it, Ava. I hope you make EJ pay

my password. Let’s see.

I was raw. Uh, a what? Johnny, You don’t belong behind a desk. You’re an artist.

You don’t, you don’t want me at Damara. Of course I do. I’d love nothing more than to have my son by my side. But you wouldn’t be happy here. You usually be out there creating, following your vision, bringing it, bringing it to life, like, I don’t know, Dad, the last vision I tried to bring to. It didn’t turn out so well.

You’re not gonna let a little thing like demonic possessions stop you from achieving your dreams, are you? If you can be the devil, you can beat anyone.

You’re right. Anyway, I’ve got a lot of work to do up, undo all the damage Gabby did as CEO is a lot bigger task than I imagine. Well, I’ll leave you to it then. Mm-hmm.

Hey, any luck? Nope. Security is so tight on my brother’s work Emails like trying to break into Fort Knox. How about you? My dad walked in on me. I went through his desk and does he know your Aja? Not a chance.

That’s correct. I want tied to security on all of the mirror’s, devices, desktops, laptops, phones, and as the head of it, I want you to personally oversee its upgrades. No, there is no active threat, but not everyone is happy about the recent change in leadership that you could never be too careful. Okay, thank you.

You okay? Sure. Yeah. Why wouldn’t I be, Gabby, you just signed your divorce papers. That had to be very difficult. Uh, Lee, what are you, what are you doing here? Isn’t this the first day? You being ej second in command, You know, that’s just temporary, right? Yeah. I love you and I, and I trust you. I know you’re looking out for me and that I’m biting time until I can get rid of EJ in all the other Demaris, and then I’ll just be you and me.

Shin Hernandez Enterprises.

Oh, he. Shim. I liked Mando. Oh, believe me. I know.

Well, Gwen, ready to blow this joint and head. Yeah, that sounds really nice. And Dad, yeah, thank you for giving me this chance and for still believing in me even after all the ways that I’ve disappointed you. It’s not gonna happen again. This time. It’s gonna be different. I’m going to be. And I’m gonna do everything that I can to make sure that you’re proud of me.

All of a sudden, Glen’s chips has a conscience. Now what? Where am I gonna find someone to help me? No, no, no. Phyllis, of course. I’m not trying to avoid you or your. You’ve been sending text messages as well. That’s strange. I I never got them, but I’m so glad you caught me because I do have some good news for him.

Yes. I, I’m finally getting out of your hair. I found a new place to live. Well, obviously I know I have to settle up. Remind me, uh, how much exactly do I own that much? And tell me, does the Salem in offer an installment plan? Cause I had a line on a job, but it fell through, so I just need a little bit of time.

Legal action, Darling. Phyllis, I’m sure it’s not gonna come to that. No, no, no. Don’t worry darling. I will find a way to come up with the money.

Problem solved.

You still haven’t told me why you came back here.

After what we just did. You’re still thinking about that . I mean, I’m curious. My sister texted me saying she was gonna stop by. Oh, she did? What’d she want? Well, um, she wanted to see if you would reconsider hiring her here at Damara and. But since you’re refusing, she was hoping I would hire her myself, but since you’re not CEO anymore, but if I was, I would hire her in a heartbeat.

And your sister’s a rockstar.

You’re not the first person today to remind me of her talents.

Maybe I do need to reconsider. Yeah. Maybe you should, unless you know you’re intimidated by powerful, strong women.

Okay. I just got a text from my mom. Is she okay? She’s fine. Thank God. She says she’s gonna check in again soon. And now that we know both of our moms are okay, we can head it back out to Seattle. Man, you’re pretty anxious to get back. Because you know, if we stay when you’ll choose me. Well, I mean, she definitely would choose me, but, uh, I’m actually just saving you the humiliation.

I don’t want let everyone to see my little brother crying. Okay.

You know, she’s into mma. No way. Mm-hmm. , dude, she can hack into anything. She’s a badass poker player and she likes mma. Mm-hmm. , she’s like the perfect woman. To Wendy picking the best Johnson, or, you know what I mean? You know what I mean? I do. And I will drink it there.

Who’s a Lee? Oh my God. Oh my God. He just offered me a position at Damara here in Salem. A good one. Congrats. Congrats. You, Uh, you got what you wanted, so I guess that means we won’t be working together anymore. Sure Will. If my brother and your dad got this Dr. Wolf guy to mess with Stephan’s head, I wanna know.

And my new job puts us one step closer to finding out the truth.

Stephan, I’m starting to worry about you. Everything okay? It is now. Just got divorced. It’s done. Yes, my widow and I just put pen to paper. Once the judge signs off, it’ll be official. I’m very happy for you, brother. It must be over the moon. Gabby Hernandez is out of your life forever.
