THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Aren’t you thirsty? I am having second thoughts actually. What? It is Too late for that. Oh, come on Jackson. It’s gonna be a fun night. I promise. Not just fun but memorable. We’ll laugh. We’ll cry. Happy tears. Of course. We’ll take goofy selfies and post them to our socials. No, we. Fine. Then we will laugh and cry and eat the Chilean sea bass here to die for.
It’s very expensive, by the way. $46. But this sky’s the limit baby. Again with that. Look what? Look, just wanna make sure you actually brought your wallet. Of course. I brought my wallet. Why would you even ask that? Just in case we having, uh, an Oopsy moment when the check. Oh ye of little faith prepared to have your shallow preconceptions of me shattered Jackson Kakkis.
See, I got an advance in my salary. It’s bringing a hold in my pocket. Well, look who it is. Oh God. What are you? What are you doing here? Did you bring him here as some kind of threat? He’s headed in for me since the night you were stabbed. Relax, Leo. I didn’t come here for you.
I came here for her.
Where’s your partner in crime? Oh, you mean my partner in crime fighting? Yeah. Despite your best effort. It’s our client won our election and is off celebrating. Well, you’re drowning your sorrows with martini sorrows. Oh, no, no, no honey. I’m the one who’s celebrating. But you lost. Good boy. You are way behind with times.
Oh, looking for someone? Uh, yeah, I thought my husband would be here. Oh, you shouldn’t be long. If you just wanna wait. I just sent him out with an arrest warrant. Wish he should be serving right about. Now
murder? What? No. There there must be some kind of mistake. No. No. Afraid there isn’t a mistake. It’s gonna be okay, baby. Well, what is this all about, John? Honestly, I don’t know. It was the DA’s idea. So trash put you up to this. Yeah. You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used against you in a court of law.
You have the right to, an attorney cannot afford one. I will provide for you. No Ms. Price and Adam. Governor, like is this true? Do you have any comments?
Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
This is one defeat. You can’t spin, counselor, you have nothing left to blackmail. Poll price with not that Stephanie gave her the original. Yeah. That’s what Alex did with it. Didn’t realize he was moonlighting for sj p r. They’re friends. Friends, right. Anyway, Alex stole my file, so I stole it right back from him.
What you talking about? I owe it on a surprises new system, Leo Stark, but one and only thanks to him I got access into Pauline’s Safe and the information that rightfully belonged to.
I knew you didn’t come here to pumble me, then why were you just hiding behind sunny like a human shield? I was just trying to lighten the moment. I mean, you’re not mad at me anymore about what happened to your brother, right? Leo? I don’t know how to break this to you, but I don’t think about you at all, especially when I have much, much more pleasant things to dwell on.
Oh, he’s a sharmer. He sure is. Well, we would invite you to join us, but Sunny and I have lots to talk about. Mm-hmm. No, we don’t. Yes we do. No, we don’t. Yes we do. Hey, holler. If it gets too handsy, I will. Thanks. You know, your brother could afford to show more respect. Oh yeah. And why would he do that? Why would he do that?
Isn’t it obvious I am a key member of our new governor’s? I’d go as far as to say I’ve made myself indispensable to her. You may wanna record the news tonight. Your husband’s bound to be all over the coverage. Coverage of what? Wait. Who did he go arrest? I am so glad you asked. You see, camera crews are gonna be there to document Paulina Price’s historic victory, but they’re also gonna bear witness to the governor.
Elect’s very first scandal. Wait. This is about Paul. My guess is she won’t even make it to inauguration day before she has to resign. You’ve sent Sean to arrest Paul for what? Sadly, Ms. Price is not the subject of the warrant. But our new governor has worked really hard to cover up the heinous crime committed by her daughter.
Remove those handcuffs. Now. This is an outrage. You look what is happening. Oh, don’t you worry. Don’t you worry, baby. Is it? Let her go. You get away from my baby. I can’t do that. I’m sorry. Do not interfere. Okay, well, I’m going to interfere this. This doesn’t make any sense. Murder Uncle Sean. There’s no way. I don’t.
Governor Elect Price. Did you know there was a warrant for your daughter’s arrest? Mayor Carver, do you have any comment on your stepdaughter’s arrest? Who was the victim? All right, come on, come on. Let’s get you down. Mr. Priest, Chanel, do you have any comment? She has no comment, but I tell you this. Steak and a travesty.
Mama, I thought, look, no, baby, don’t you say, don’t you say anything. Don’t you say anything. I promise you this will all, this will all be okay. Come,
let’s go. Let’s go this way.
Uh, well, I guess a toast to your boss to winning the election. Cheers. Okay. What’s with the lousy mood? All of a sudden? Oh, your snarky brothers comment hurt my feelings. You have feelings? Haha. Hilarious. This is a serious question, which I’m not gonna dignify with an. Look, I know I’ve screwed up in the past, but I’m doing my damnedest to make amends to the people I’ve heard trying to make a decent living, trying to be a productive member of the Salem community, and he treats me like I’m gum on the bottom of his shoe.
You can’t blame him for being a little curious as to why he invited me out here. As a matter of fact, I am too. I told you why. If you hadn’t recognized Clyde Weston’s cologne and identified him as your attacker, I’d be in prison right now. I’m very glad that the right person was punished. But you didn’t have to take me out to dinner.
I know. I didn’t have to. I wanted to. And we have a history after all. My God, what? What should I not bring up our past that we used to be married? It is kind of a big deal. Yes. But it doesn’t make the case that you think it does. Leo. Sing as you know. Uh, You blackmailed me. So using the term married to describe what we were makes me a bit queasy.
I only blackmailed you after you and Will thought you killed me and rolled my body up in a rug to dispose of. I, none of that would’ve happened if you hadn’t gone after me and Will in the first place.
Well, this is fun. Yes. We haven’t been working with appetizers yet.
Is it mirror? Are things getting tense over there? You know, I’m not sure Sonny even knows why he’s here. It’s not a date, isn’t it? No. No. God, no. Sonny and Will are solid, but hey, let’s just, let’s ignore them. Let’s focus on our big night. Hmm. And it is a big night. Mm-hmm. , isn’t it? Mm-hmm. . Ah. Hearing those election results felt even better than I thought it would.
You made that happen. Oh, I was a small part. Would you please, please stop being so humble. Okay. A medium sized part. And so were you, thank you again for hitting that file from Sloan. I know you felt like you were betraying her. If that’s all it took to garnish a date with you, I’d do it all over again. I’m sorry.
And I take that back. I’m not gonna be that guy. What guy? The guy that just comes on too strong and pushes way too hard. Calling this a date would be, um, presumptuous maybe. But what if it is a date?
So you still think I’m bluffing fine, but don’t come crying to me whenever all hell breaks loose. Which should be any moment now, by the way.
Okay, so you have the fire. What’s your number?
You wanna buy the file back? Name me a price. You’ll have it tonight. I guess I can’t blame you for thinking that Paulina can buy her way out of this one, but you humiliated me. You used someone that I cared about to get what you wanted,
so you forced me to up the stakes. What are you talking about? It means that Paul is about to get what’s coming. And she will have no one to blame, but you and Stephanie?
Yes. This is Amir Carver. I want you to get security to escort the reporters away from Ms. Price’s door. Yes. Thank you. Thank you. And why did you drag me in here when you know Chanel needs me? Those reporters out there are the reason you are going to be swamped. We’re just lucky your office is right off the square.
I’m so lucky. Look, I’m worried about unless you are, but this isn’t about her. She was arrested for murder. But this story isn’t about her. This is about you, the governor elect. Those reporters out there, they are going to ask you questions. You don’t have the answers for ’em, or maybe you do.
You’re arresting Chanel. For what? No. That warrant your husband is currently serving. I don’t think I’ve ever had an easier time having a judge sign off on fell. Oh, nice work Detective. How’d it go? You know exactly how it went. I’ve got uniforms out front trying to keep the reporters at bay. Oh, I’m sure they have so many questions and I hope all those photographers got you.
Good side. Mr. Pree, uh, you know why you’re here, right? Actually, Chanel, you don’t have to say anything. Let’s get her down to booking so I can start questioning her. Yeah. Sean, what is going on? I, I don’t know. I don’t know all the details, but I’ll fill you in later. Okay. Come on.
Okay, look, can we start over? Leo, why don’t we just get the check on the, the check for what? We haven’t ordered anything, but we got the drinks and actually waiter, sunny. Stop. Stop. The last thing I wanted to do tonight is.
Looking back, I’m sure there are things that we both regret. That we both regret. No, I don’t regret a damn thing. Okay, fine. Well, there are things that I regret, but we also have had our fun, right? No. No, we did not. Well, it’s never been boring. Can you at least say that?
Okay. I’ll give you that one. I just want us to get along. Thank God. What? It’s not that I don’t think you want to get along Leo, but you always have some ulterior motive, an angle, and if by chance you are looking for another sugar daddy, I wanna make it very, very clear that this ring I’m wearing, it means a lot to me.
You think I asked you out to try and seduce you and take your money? I’m not not thinking it Well, I am beyond hurt and insulted, which is something I’m very used. Besides, I don’t need a sugar daddy. I have a great job. Now then what do you want? Friendship. Seriously? You say that like it’s some insane fantasy.
Like, who does Leo Stark think he is trying to have friends? Okay. No, that’s, that’s not what I meant. Yes it is. Yes it is. It’s fine.
The truth is I don’t have very many friends. It’s distressing. Yes, there’s Gwenny whom I adore, but I don’t have a single gay male friend in Salem. Not one. And you want me to be the one? Well, Sonny, you’re successful, you’re popular, you’re funny, which is very important to me because I’m hilarious and have been told many times that I should do standup.
My point is maybe you have no idea what it’s like to be lonely, but I’ll give you a window. It sucks.
What are you not telling me? Paulina Abraham. I heard Schnell say something. I know what you’re thinking, that you, your wife is keeping yet another secret from you that thought had entered my mind. I really believed I had this under control. And what? Under control? Oh, look, Paulina Paul, I want to help you, but I can’t help you if I don’t know what this is.
And there’s no time to waste if Chanel is going to be charged with murder. So, Please for the sake of your daughter.
I was being blackmailed for something Chanel did when she was younger and the blackmailer said I had to pay up or the police would find out the truth. I hired Stephanie Johnson to handle it. That how she was your campaign manager? Yes, yes, but it was more than that. The proof was in a file and Stephanie, she, she got it back for me and, you know, the, the blackmail was over.
She know it was safe. At least I thought she was. So what did you do with this file? Well, I put it somewhere where no one could get to it. I just, I don’t even understand how this all got out of control. Who is it? Who was blackmailing you? Sloan Peterson. That witch. What did you do? Only would I had been threatening to do from the very beginning if I didn’t get what I was asking for.
You went to the cops even better, I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that Da Trask was very, very interested in the contents of that file.
Come on. Come on. Answer.
For real, you’d be willing to to date, because up until now, everything you’ve said has been pretty much the opposite. I know, and I had my reasons, but maybe it’s time to rethink those reasons. That is the best news that I’ve. All year long.
uh, it’s Chad,
do you need to take that? I’ll, I’ll give you some privacy. Um, no, no. I’m here with you. Notifications are silenced. Look at you. Look at me. Election’s over. Hmm. I deserve a night without alerts. Work is done for the day. Are you sure? Yeah. Whatever it is, it can wait. And right now I have something more important to focus on.
Cheers to that
Allie, I was just trying to call you. Have you seen Chanel? Yeah, Sean just brought her through. I tried to follow, but I fight through all these reporters. Is she, is she locked up already? Oh no, she’s still here in the station. They just took her down to booking. Gosh, she must be so scared and there’s nothing I can do to help.
Do you know what this is about? No, no. Paul had just finished her victory speech. Everything was great, and then all of a sudden Sean showed up with a warrant, said the charges were murder. Wait, what Murder. H, how can that be?
Okay, now turn to the right.
Sounds like you’re getting a lot of alerts. Something in the news. Damn it, Stefan, why aren’t you picking up? No, I guess she’s. I’ll know where she is. Good luck. You’ll need it.
This girl, I don’t know how she did it, but somehow Sloan got into my safe and she stole back the evidence. How’d she get her hands on that evidence in the first place? Well, she’s representing some mystery client. She wouldn’t tell me. And, and, and, uh, the evidence was just sitting in the safe. I plan to shred everything, but I haven’t had a moment alone since I got my hands on it.
So if the DA was able to secure a warrant yes. For Chanel’s arrest, that means Melinda Trask has that file right now. Oh. And she hates me. Says I strong armed her into given Lonnie that plea deal. So you think she’s still get it out on Chanel? Oh, I know she is. Oh my poor baby. I need to go see my daughter.
No, no, no, no, no, no. Until we have a. Until we have a plan, we have to keep our distance from those reporters. What? We can’t just sit here, we need to do something. Look, I know that one step at a time, we cannot help Chanel until we have a plan and until you tell me what she did,
Stephanie. Chad, why are you doing here? Why are you ignoring my calls? Hey, we’re in the middle of something here, bud. Right? Um, sorry, I’m, I’m sorry to interrupt. I, I, I really am. But you need to check your phone. Why? What’s going on?
You serious? Aren’t you about wanting a. Why would I joke about that? Because literally everything is a joke to you, Leo. You enjoy nothing more than making someone look like a total idiot. That’s how you see me. Is there any other way? So I like to keep people laughing because, like I said, being funny. It’s my greatest talent.
And yes, I enjoy scandalizing people by being outrageous because it keeps them at a distance. But you know where that gets you right here with somebody thinking that you’re playing a prank when you’re trying to reveal a piece of your heart to,
oh, I’m sorry. It’s fine. It’s my own fault. I act like a clown. I don’t expect people to look beneath the surface level. I just didn’t expect you to be like everybody else.
When did this happen? Right after Paulina gave her victory speech. How did this happen? I’m still trying to sort all of that out, but I just ran into, uh, to Sloan and she was all too happy to let me know what she did. She got the documents back and she used them. Wait, but that’s impossible. But how did she get him outta PUIs safe?
Sloan said he.
So bitch. Oh, Alex, what are you doing? Hey, get up. Huh? Get up. What? What did you do? You little rat.
I wanna help Chanel so bad, but I don’t even know who to call. I’ve never felt this helpless. It’s gonna be okay. Yeah. Help. Anyway, I, I’ll help any way I can.
Where Stella is she? Okay. Transcos are in interrogation. She wants to be the one to do the initial. Chanel’s by herself. That can’t be good. Well, this is what trash does. Make the arrest publicly, catch the suspect off guard, rush them through booking. She wants Chanel to be scared and desperate, so she’ll say whatever she needs to say to get outta that room.
Sean, you have to help her please.
It’s just you and me right now. Miss D. And, and I need you to understand that the truth is your only way through this, the truth. All right, let’s stop this right now. Excuse me, but you’re not allowed to be in here Chanel. Do you want representation? Huh? Do you want my help? Do you want me to be your lawyer?
Yes. Good. This interrogation at, so.
You might wanna think twice about that. Chanel Mrs. Brady’s been hanging around the station tonight. Do you really wanna trust your fate in the hands of an ambulance chaser? Chanel has stated her preference for counsel, so anything you wanna say to her, you say through me, it’s not too late to change your mind.
She’s my lawyer. There you go, Ms. Trask. I’d like a few minutes to confer with my client, so if you wouldn’t mind, or even if you do mind,
Allie was really afraid that you were gonna be in here alone. But listen, you are not alone anymore.
Detective, don’t you have an arrest report to write up? I’ll get to it. Why are you doing this? I’m just doing my job, Allie. But if you know something, then you can help your friend by making a statement. Leave over. Okay. I’m just trying to be helpful by arresting Chanel in front of half the town. Chanel’s not doing herself any favors in there.
Okay. You might think that letting Bell take over is a good idea, but I’m just trying to get to the truth. Well, I don’t know anything, and even if I did, I wouldn’t tell you my girlfriend is not a murderer and you know this because? Because I would. Like, I’m sorry, Allie, but that’s what we call misplaced loyalty.
Right? She’s been keeping a very big secret from you, from everyone. That’s all gonna come out now.
Well, Alex, take it easy. Just tell me what you did, Leo. Tell me what you did. Just tell me who you’re working for. Don’t lie. I don’t lie. Call Lena Price. Get off me. Admit it. Just admit it. What did you do? Wait, wait. How am I supposed to admit anything? I don’t know what you’re talking about. Let him go, Alice.
Yeah, please. It’s.
Glad I wasn’t being paranoid before. Hey, what’s, can we just, what’s going on? Okay. Leo, did Sloan Peterson go to Paulina’s office today? What? Answer the question. What? I, yeah. I, I, I owe Sloan some money, but what does my business with Sloan have Anything to do with you? It doesn’t, except when your business is stabbing.
Our friends in the back.
I just can’t believe that Chanel’s been carrying this burden around for so long. You too. Oh, babe, I, I’m so sorry for keeping this from you, and please don’t, don’t hate me for lying to you yet again.
I can never hate you. And I get, oh, you kept this hidden. This wasn’t your secret to tell. You understand. I’ll do anything I can to help you and your daughter. Thank you. Thank you, Abraham. Thank you.
Kicking the DA out of here doesn’t mean that she’s going away for good. She’s gonna wanna sit with you and she’s gonna have a lot of tough questions, but the good news is I’ll be here to make sure you don’t say anything that’s gonna hurt yourself. Okay. Thank you. Now, Allie said that your arrest came as a surprise to.
was it a surprise to you, or did you see it coming? No, I, I thought it was all over and Mama was helping, helping make it go away? Well, that she had this file, the one that Ms. Trask has now. What’s in the file? I am supposed to tell you everything. Actually, you know, it’s probably better if you don’t give me the details.
The police still have to show me what they have, and it’s probably better that I see that without any preconceptions. If they have that file, then they have everything they need. So you’ve seen what’s in that file. Mama, show me a copy. Okay. Chanel, I want you to understand that in a court of law, it’s not always about the.
It’s about what they can prove is true. Okay.
What documents I, I don’t understand, and what does this have to do with Paulina’s daughter? Just tell us what happened when Sloane was in the office. Why is this important? Tell them everything. Leo, I already told you she showed up because she wanted money. Did you give it to her? Well, it wasn’t that simple.
I didn’t have any cash. Paul had promised me in advance and I wanted to get rid of Sloan, so, so you opened Paulina Safe, the combination was just sitting there. You opened it in front of Sloan. Well, how else was I supposed to get the money out? I took what I needed and I closed it right back up. Obviously not.
She said you helped her. What? No, no, I didn’t help her do anything. Did you turn your back for even a second? No.
Oh geez. Answer the question, Leo,
maybe. Okay. You’re gonna have to do better than that. Well, I, I had to count the money. Right. And we know that staying focused is in my strong suit, neither’s Math. Well, congratulations, Leo, you just destroyed your boss’s career and her daughter’s life.
Uh huh. Well, thank you for the update.
They’ve cleared out most of the reporters. Just a few stragglers left, hoping to catch a sound bite from you. Hmm. Which they’ll twist and use against my Chanel. Well, don’t say anything for now. I need to get down to the station. I look. Why don’t we, why don’t we call down there and check. It it We’ll see if Ali knows what’s going on, huh?
Yes. Good idea. Good idea. Oh,
Helena El, are you at the station? I’m here. Where are you? Um, in my office. Trying to avoid the press. How’s my baby? Have you seen her? No. She’s in the interrogation. Oh my God. She’s all alone in there. No, she’s not alone. Um, my Aunt Bell’s in there. I think she’s taking on the case. Oh, thank God. Thank God.
Well, if you see her, you tell her to hold on. Okay. Tell her mama is coming.
So for now, you just stay quiet and you let me do all the talking. Okay. Oh, it’s Allie. She’s out in the station and she said she just spoke to your mom and she’s on her way soon. I can’t believe this happened on our election night. Well, they obviously planned it that way.
I trust that you and your shiny new client are getting to know each other, but I still have questions that need to be. Well, they’ll have to wait. It’s been a long night and I still need to see your evidence . Okay, you wanna stall? Fine, but since it’s too late for an arraignment, it’s also too late for a bail hearing, meaning your client is gonna be our guest for the night downstairs in the lockup.
Detective, please escort our newest guest down to reporters for the evening. Uh, Chanel. Everything is gonna be okay, Sean. We’ll keep you safe and I’ll have you out in the morning. Okay, here we go.
Best Cuffer before you walk her down there as befits a murder suspect.
I really got Paulina, his daughter in trouble, huh? Yeah. Looks pretty bad. We’re kid. Well, Alex seems to think whatever happened that I did it on purpose. Did you? What? I would never do anything to Paulina or Chanel. If Sloan stole something from Paulina Safe, she did it while I wasn’t looking. You believe me, right.
God help me. But yeah. Yeah, I do.
I can’t stay here any longer. I need to be with my daughter. Look, I know that. And I will do my best to shield you from those reporters. So are you ready for this? Oh, I have to be. We’ll get through it together.
All right, let’s go.
Well, now we. Sloan used Leo to get that file. Are we sure he wasn’t working for her? I don’t know, but we should probably get started on this right away. Yeah. I’m sorry, Alex, but I have to go. My phone is going to explode if I don’t at least release a statement and I need to go find Paulina. Yeah, of course.
But we’ll do this again another time. I’d like that. It’s a lot
you. Yeah, let’s go.
Congratulations, madam Governor Elect, Mr. Mayor, you both won hard fought elections. But I wonder at what price? What are you doing here? Are you here to glute something like that? Paulina, you know, it would’ve been so much cheaper for you just to pay me when I asked, but now the whole world is gonna know what Chanel did and how you covered it up.
Well, here’s what I know that you are a miserable, heartless cow. Now get outta. I’ve gotta go see my daughter. Oh,
Chanel. Oh my God. I’m so sorry. Don’t touch the prisoner. Oh, she’s not a prisoner detective. This contact is inappropriate. Whatever you need, I’m here for you. Okay. I love you. She, I love you too, Chelsea. Take her away.
It means I’m finally an A-list. Gay. Wow. Does that mean we’ll actually get a, a good table tonight? It damn will better. She’s coming.
