Yeah, we are gonna miss you today, but I am, uh, glad you guys are there for trip. Let him know we’re thinking about it. All right? Yeah. Love you too, sis. How’s trip? Uh, four kids having a tough time. I mean, losing his mom right before the holidays. But your aunt ca and Steve are looking after. Well, at least he’s in good hands for sure.

But that also means we’re gonna have two lost people for Thanksgiving dinner. So I hope you and Jada are hungry. Otherwise we’re gonna have a tunnel leftovers that about Pa Jada. There’s something you need to know.

This is Brady. Hi, happy Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving, and please call me Kate. I’m just getting used to my married name. Oh, congratulations on your wedding, by the way. I heard it was a lovely ceremony. Well, yes, it was as lovely as it could be on your deathbed, but you’re totally recovered now, right?

Yeah, no, I’m feeling great and I came up to tell you that dinner will be ready in an hour. Uh, well actually I wasn’t planning on coming to dinner. I had a lot of packing to do. Packing Eric didn’t tell you I’m moving out.

The last time we were here in this kitchen when I was arrested, uh, you know, I had asked you what you thought about starting our relationship and uh, he never really answered me well. There was a lot going on. True. Yep. Yeah. But now here we are, back in the kitchen. So I’m gonna ask you again, what do you think?

No, Chanel is still in police custody. My Aunt Fells trying to get her bail, but I haven’t heard anything, so thanks. Yeah, it was really good talking to you too. Uh, again, trip. I’m so sorry about your mom. Take care of yourself. Okay, bye


Can you look disappointed? No, I’m, I’m, I’m always happy to see you. I just thought it was Chanel.

Mama. Oh, Chanel my poor baby. Oh, I haven’t stopped thinking about you. Not even for a second. Same. Happy Thanksgiving. Happy Thanksgiving. My precious girl

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

I was praying that I was gonna see you today. I should have come sooner. I wanted to, but they’ll advised me to stay away. Said it’s what’s best for you right now, which makes no sense. You needed your mama wasn’t here. Oh my darling girl. I’m so sorry. No, mama. I’m the one who’s, sorry. Wow. You are moving out.

Why? Well, because living here might be a little awkward now that Eric and Nicole are back together. What, when did that happen? Uh, pretty recently. Well, I, I’m so sorry. I mean, I’m sorry not to have you here, but I can understand you wanting to make a clean break. Well, unfortunately that may not be possible.

Why not? So, uh, Jada’s pregnant

and you don’t seem too happy about it? No, I, I, I am. It’s, it’s a blessing. It’s just, you know, I’ve always wanted to have children, but it was obviously not. Of course not. I mean, well, because Jada and I, I mean, we’re not on the best of terms. Something happened. Yeah, yeah, it did. I mean, right before I, I got news about the baby Nicole and I decided to get back together.

Are you here? I came to get the rest of my things. Yeah. Well I already told Eric I’d have him sent over to the pub. Yeah, well you, you shouldn’t have to do that. And I came here because I thought you would be at the station. And also to avoid, well this, that is so Nicole. Yeah. Always taking the easy way out.

I heard about the accident last night. Yeah. Well, it’s still on our investigation, huh? Yeah, I, I know, I know you can’t talk about it. I just, I know we had our issues with Ava, but I still feel terrible about what happened. Yeah, yeah, me too. I heard EJ was there. He must be devastated. Couldn’t even get him to gimme a statement.

I can’t even imagine what he’s going through right now.

I got everything Holly and I need for now. I’ll, I’ll send for the rest later. How is Holly? She’s a little confused about everything that’s going on, but you know, generally she’s okay. It’s with Maggie right now until I find a place to settle down.

Still cooking Thanksgiving dinner. Yeah. Well, uh, I made a promise I want to let Ari and Gabby down. You know, they’ve been looking forward to this. So is I Sorry you had to do everything. I’m wrong. Oh, it’s fine. I make deal turkeys in the air fryer. Just have to, uh, make a couple. Oh my God. I was supposed to make my mom’s pie.

Please tell me you have another dessert. Well, actually I did send Gabby to, uh, go to Sweet Pit Spa. They were closed. Okay, mom, I could still make it. No. Why not? They’re still time. I said, no, you cannot have Thanksgiving dinner without dessert. Please, Ray, if it’s the least I could do, if not for you, then for your family, fine for Ari.

It’s the only reason I’m saying yes. Hey, one pie coming up.

I’ve been baking a lot to keep myself from worrying about Chanel 24 7. In a weird way, it kind of makes me feel close to her. Hey, is uh, is that big mama sweet potato pie? Yes. Chanel and Paulina used to make one every Thanksgiving, so I figured it was a good choice, . Um, but anyway, how Salani, I heard you went down to Maryland to tell her about.

Yeah. Yeah, she, she misses her family, obviously, but I assured her that her, her sister’s getting a lot of support. I, I heard that you, you got a chance to see Chanel yesterday. Yeah. Trask wasn’t allowing visitors, so I had to get special permission from Rafe. But yeah, um, it was really good to see her. It was good to spend some time together.

Has Paulina been able to see her yet? She’s at the station right now. Oh. And I, I would’ve been there with her, but she asked me if I could come check on you. Oh, that’s very sweet, . How you holding up? Uh, honestly, I’m terrified. Just the other day, Chanel and I were talking about our future together. You know, getting married, possibly having kids.

And now it’s like, but if we have no future, sweetheart, you have absolutely no reason to be sorry. But I ruined your big day. You were elected governor and instead of being able to celebrate, you were publicly humiliated because of me. Please. The only person to blame for how it all went down is that horrible da.

She insisted that Detective Brady arrest you at the worst possible moment. Yeah. And now the whole world knows that your daughter committed murder.

You know that incident that Chanel was involved in, Paulina filled me in on the whole story. Yeah, it was just an accident. Chanel did not intend to hurt that woman. Do you think a jury will believe that? It’s hard to say. You know what concerns me is, is the coverup. Paulino meant well, but, well, it’s, uh, it could be a problem.

I’m just so sorry that Chanel and her mom have to go through this.

I do too, Allie. But we have to be strong for them. That’s. That’s all we can do for now.

You are not a murder Russian now. You were only defending yourself. That woman lured you to that roof and attacked you because I was sleeping with her husband. Well, that still doesn’t give her the right to put her hands on you. You were just a young girl. I was a college student, old enough and smart enough to know that I shouldn’t be going to bed with a married man.

A married man was your professor. He had all the power and he took advantage of it. He preyed on you. Chanel. Okay. Even if he did, even if he did lie to me and lead me on, it doesn’t change the fact that I was the one who pushed Martha Bedford off of that building. You were fighting her off. If you hadn’t pushed her, you might have been the one who fell to your death.

What happened was a tragic accident. No one is to blame no matter what that what that spiteful daughter says. But daughter, oh my God, I forgot. You didn’t know Chanel. Sloane Peterson is not just some random lawyer. She’s not? Nope.

She’s the daughter of Martha and Nathan. She’s hell Ben, on revenge.

So what’s the plan? Uh, I’m not sure with Jada being pregnant now, I don’t, I don’t know where I stand with Eric. I met with our divorce. God, I’m sorry.

You know what? I haven’t really thought about it yet. I haven’t really thought about it. Okay. Well I figured there’s no reason to wait. So, um, after the holiday you might as. Get a lawyer and I’ll do the same. Okay? And don’t worry, I’m not gonna fight you or drag it out just because you were in love with your ex-husband the whole time we were married, right?

Uh, we’ll just, um, we’ll just call it irreconcilable differences.

After we talked and Cole and I, we realized that we couldn’t deny it any longer. We loved each other. We wanted to be together. Well, I’m not surprised. And uh, as long as you’re happy, that’s very important to me. So, uh, Nicole is ending her marriage to Rafe, obviously. Yeah. And I decided to end things with.

But before I could do that, I got a call from rape that Jada had fainted. So Nicole and I went to the hospital and that’s where Sarah broke the news to Jada and I. So Jada was pregnant. Yeah, which was a total surprise. I mean, we were careful and while it’s a blessing, It’s just the timing couldn’t be any worse, obviously.

So what does this mean for you and Nicole? That’s a good question. So does, does Eric know about the pregnancy? He was there when I got the news. Okay. That didn’t change anything. Not for me. I’m not looking to trap a man who wants to be with someone. No, no, no. Absolutely. I mean, I, I understand that, and I have to admit that before you came into the picture, I, I was encouraging Eric to get back with Nicole, probably saw their undeniable chemistry along with everyone in Salem.

Okay. I also saw you and Eric together, and it’s very clear to me that he has feelings for you. Not as strong as his feelings for Nicole, but you are carrying his baby now. And for a man like Eric, that carries weight. Meaning what? Meaning that I don’t think you should give up on that relationship so easily.

I mean, it’s not for your baby, for you.

Eric is pretty committed to Nicole and she’s already told rape that she wants a divorce. It’s a pretty done deal. Yeah. I don’t know the, the number of times those two have gotten together and broken up. I mean, I really, I couldn’t even count them, you know? I mean, if you are really interested in a relationship with him, kind of in your way, fight for him.

I appreciate your advice, Keith, but Eric’s made his decision and now it’s time for me to make. On whether or not I’m going to keep this baby.

So you’re thinking of terminating the pregnancy? I grew up in the church, so it’s not my first inclination, but I also believe in a woman’s right to choose Stu. Under these circumstances, it’s just not ideal to bring a baby into this world. Uh, no. I mean, they aren’t ideal circumstances, but knowing Eric, I think he would be in favor of keeping the baby.

Yes. He’s, he’s made it clear that he’s gonna support whatever decision I make. Okay. Well then you need to figure out what you want. I, I wanted to be with Eric, and if Nicole wasn’t in the picture, I, I think I would’ve been happy to raise a child with him, but I, I don’t think I’m prepared to be a single parent, and so I was thinking that maybe baby, maybe I shouldn’t have this baby.

Obviously, I still love. And I want to be with her. We’re just gonna have to have a long conversation of how this is gonna work. If Jada does keep the baby. If she hasn’t made a decision head, is she leaning one way or the other? I don’t know. It’s her decision to make, and I’ll respect it, whatever it turns out to be.

But if you add your way, like I said, of course I want to be a father. Never got to be a father at a little McKinsey. I just hope that whatever decision Jada doesn’t make, it’s not because of what I’ve done. Although, although what? No, I would understand. She doesn’t want to have a baby with a guy who left her for his ex-wife.

So there was no mystery client? Nope. Sloan is the one who’s blackmailing us to avenge. Your mother, Nathan? He, he told me that he had two kids, but he never told me their names. I can’t believe this. So his daughter has been here in Salem, lying and wait for over a year. Goes back much further than that.

Sloane was in law school when Martha died. Initially, her father claimed it was a suicide, but on his deathbed, he admitted to Sloane that that was a lie. He passed away before she could find out more, so she launched an investigation of her own and managed to dredge up the evidence that I had buried long.

Now she wants us both to pay for it. Trask threatened to have you arrested if I didn’t talk. Did you Bell shut it down pretty quickly. But Trask could still charge you for covering up my crime. I won’t let that happen, mama. I will not let you pay for something that I did. Don’t you worry baby. I’ve been in plenty of jams and I’ve always gotten out of them.

Now, trust me, this is no. You and I, we’ll be just fine.

Today was supposed to be our first real holiday as a couple. Chanel and I were so excited to spend Thanksgiving with you and Paulina. You know, maybe that could still happen. I highly doubt Chanel will make bail. Well, I still haven’t stepped down as mayor, so perhaps I could pull a few strings and we can all spend the holiday together.

I didn’t realize how much I really needed to talk to someone about this. Thank you so much for listening. Of course. Anytime. Well, I better get back to packing. So, um, are you leaving today? Um, my rent’s paid till the end of the month, so, um, I’ll be staying for a few more days. Well, in that case, I think you should take a break and join us for dinner.

I don’t think that’ll be a little awkward. Of course it will be awkward. Thanksgivings are always awkward , but it will give you and Eric a chance to talk.

I’ll think about it. Okay, fair enough. And one more little piece of. At the end of the day, forget about Eric. Forget about Nicole. Guess it’s your life, your body, it’s your decision.

Can I run a hypothetical by of course, if Nicole wasn’t a. And you found out that Jada was pregnant, how would you feel? Would you have wanted to raise a child with Jada? I think so, dad, everything’s just happening so fast and it was early in our relationship and Jada is a good person. We did along well.

There’s no point in bringing it up because Nicole is a factor. I love her and I always will. It’s why it’s just become such a big mess. Well, that’s quite an understatement. Just just heard the news. J’s pregnancy. How does she sound? Well, not to break a confidence, but I don’t think she could feel worse about having conceived a child with a man who’s in love with someone else and always has been.

Okay. So, um, Just, uh, pop it in the oven for 45 minutes and then let it cool before you serve. Oh, and um, there’s homemade whipped cream in the fridge. I left a bowl in there. Okay. Thank you. Least I could do. So enjoy your dinner.

I guess this is goodbye.

I promise you, baby, I will get us outta this mess. , thank you. And I am so grateful that you’re looking out for me, mama. I’m just, I’m worried about what this is doing to everyone else who’s getting dragged into this. Like who? Well, I’m sure Abe’s reputation is taking a hit and then there’s Allie. I had to tell her what I did.

Mama, I’m so ashamed. Oh no. I’m sure she understands. You said she does, but. Now that she knows about my past, what if she decides that she doesn’t wanna be with me anymore? That is never going to happen. What are you two doing here? Well, since you couldn’t come to Thanksgiving dinner, we brought Thanksgiving dinner

before I go. I just wanna tell you again how sorry I am. You are such a good man, and you didn’t deserve this. I don’t know about that. Maybe I did and you and I hooked up. I was still with Ava.

Who’s some sort of carmic intervention?

No, I don’t believe in any of that.

If you’ve, you’ve always been such a good friend to me all these years, and I just wish that we could still be friends that we can. Resume what we had before things got complicated.

Yeah. Yeah. I just, I don’t, I don’t see how that’s possible.

Please, not now.

Okay. I understand.

So we may need another place setting because I asked Jade to, to join us for dinner, although I’m not sure that she will. Maybe I should go talk to her. No need. I would like to join. And if you still have room at the table, of course we do. Um, maybe we should go check on the dinner. Okay.

Hey, I’m really glad you decided to join us for Thanksgiving dinner. I just had a really long talk with Kate and she was great. She offered me some really good advice and it gave me some clarity about our situ. Have you made a decision about the baby yet?

I have.


Okay. Who wants more pie? . Not me. I am stuffed. Me too. Yeah. Everything was delicious. Thank you for including me. Well, it was lovely to have you with us. Okay. You know what we haven’t done yet is go around the table and say what we’re thankful for. It’s a big part of our Thanksgiving ritual. Yes, it is. So I’ll start.

I am very grateful that Katie was able to make a full recovery and very, very grateful that she did me the tremendous honor of becoming my wife.

I am grateful too for being here. And for being married to you? My love, my husband. I’m also grateful for my children and my grandchildren that they’re all healthy and I really wish they were here, but they’re not. But I am mostly grateful for everyone who is here and that we could share this Thanksgiving together.

Okay. So who would like to go next? I will, Jada and I, we had a conversation earlier. I’m very thankful. I’m very thankful to announce that Jada decided to keep the baby. Oh. Oh, you’re going to be raising this baby together. Oh.

Alex, what’s on this? Well, what does it look like?

You said there was a work emergency. There is. It’s Thanksgiving and you have been working way too hard.
