THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
No offense dear Meemaw God, but this is disgusting. I thought you were getting used to it. Did I say that? Mm-hmm. . You also said that you were starting to feel better, which proves that while my grandmother’s hangover recipe may not win any points for, uh, It does work if you say so. Have I ever stayed you wrong?
Oh, too many times to count . Ouch. I’m just kidding. Ej. Now you were really kind to me last night. You needed a friend
and frankly, so did I. Oh, I’m glad I could be there for, Back at you, Ms. Walker. Back at you
What’s going on here?
You there? Fuss? What are you doing here? Well, hi. Could you call in sick for a second day in a row? Just wanna make sure you’re okay. That’s very nice of you. But I, I’m fine. Uh, the doctor who did the procedure said I can go back to work tomorrow. I see. So, uh, guess that means, yeah, I, uh, I got the abortion, so you want to be my lawyer.
You just said your sister won’t represent. I have other options. None better than me. Is that so? Oh, it’s so since you don’t believe it, why don’t you hire me for yourself and find out?
Good morning. Hey Abe. Hi sweetheart. How you holding up? Well, I am missing our king size bed. Thousand threads. Count sheets, but I’m hanging in there. And what about you, kiddo? Must have been nice spending the night at home. I’m very grateful that bail got me out on bail, but I will not be okay until mama is free.
They never should have arrested her in the first place. They need to let her go. Abraham, please, please tell us. You have some good news on that front. I’m afraid. Not
like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Hey. Hey. If you’re looking for Paul, the Chanels in there with her now. Yeah, no, I let her go ahead of me. I just saw Abe go in there too. Do you want me to go in there and break it up? Uh, no. No. It’ll do Paul, some good to spend some time with her family and. That’ll give us some time to talk about my brother.
Yeah. Yeah. When we went for that drink, I, uh, I wasn’t expecting to walk in on that. Yeah. Nicole picking EJ up off the floor after Eric Dham. Neither did I. Yeah. It was so strange, strange seeing him like that. And he was belligerent to hangry and been drinking and assaulting people, including you. No, I, I hated the way that he behaved and.
How outta control he was. But I don’t know. My heart is just breaking for him. You know, I, I can see how much pain he’s in, and now you’re having second thoughts about not taking his case. I just can’t get the image outta my head, you know, my big brother sitting in jail all alone with nobody in his corner.
So what do you. I don’t know if that would be such a good idea because of my reputation. I try not to judge people, but when everyone and their mother calls me an ambulance chaser, it’s hard. I get it. But the thing that all those haters fail to mention is I tend to catch what I chase.
You sure? You don’t want anything to eat? No, I’m not hungry. You sure you’re feeling okay? I walked in. I couldn’t help but notice you were taking a pill. Oh, they’re, they’re just for. Which is basically gone. I just feel terrible about missing work. I mean, the department’s understaffed as it is. No, no, no. Jay, listen to me.
What’s important to me is that you take care of yourself. Listen, if you’re not ready to come back to work, no, I am hanging around. Here is the last thing I want to do.
If you wanna ask me something, just. Ask. I don’t mind talking to you about this. Okay. All right. Yeah, it’s just tough. On Thanksgiving, you told me that you decided that you weren’t gonna keep the baby, and I know that Eric hooked, otherwise. He did. But in the end, I, I had to do a space for me, which was totally your right.
I assume Merick understands that yes, but he was still not happy that I had changed my mind and ended the pregnancy without telling him. Was he angry? No, he was confused, very upset.
His new girlfriend on the other hand, must be very relieved. I would assume so. Nicole made it pretty clear that she did not want me to have the baby.
Somebody’s gonna answer me. I mean, I walk in here and find you two hugging on my dead grandmother’s bed. Yes, Johnny. It’s not what it looks like really? Cuz it looks like the two of you just got it on. Johnny, you don’t understand. Fuck Dad. I get that you’re grieving. Okay. But it doesn’t give you the right to have sex with RA’s wife.
Yes, I do need a lawyer. Paulina Price’s husband is like an uncle to me and her daughter is dating my niece. Boy, your niece should get as far away as possible from Chanel Dupree. She killed my mother. I know I heard you get in into it with Paulina, but she said it was an accident. Oh, that is a complete lie.
My father was Chanel’s College Profess. That little slut seduced him, a married man twice her age with two children, and then in a jealous reach, she pushed my mother off the roof of the building and claimed it was suicide. That doesn’t sound like Chanel. I mean, she’s a good kid. Oh, well obviously that good kid is adapt to hiding her homicidal tendencies.
You know, most those all sociopaths are these actual events occurred that why wasn’t she arrested years ago? Because Paulina covered. She buried the evidence. She gave the school a very generous donation to make it all go away, and my father kept that secret for me for a very long time. But honest Buddy told me the truth, which I’m telling you right now.
You do believe me. Yeah, it’s just a lot to take in.
I didn’t do it.
My dad couldn’t bear the pain, so he started drinking, eventually drank himself to death.
I loved my parents so much. Now they’re both gone.
You know what? It feels like you have what means most to you in this school? Taken. Yes, I do.
Look, I know you don’t like Rafe, but he’s a good guy. He doesn’t deserve this. Rafe is a good guy, which is why I would never cheat on him with your father. No offense. No. Take him. Okay. Well, Nicole, if you’re not hooking up with my dad, then what are you doing? Simple. I had no place to go. So there’s no place else to go with this.
I called everyone in my overseas contacts. Oh, no one can work any jurisdictional magic and make these charges disappear. What about even the people you know in Scotland? Unfortunately none. Their hands are tied. I even called one of Shane Donovan’s contacts at the American Embassy in in London, and was he any help?
She, and unfortunately, no. Come on. Don’t they understand that what Chanel did was it was an accident. Excuse me. Oh, gas winter. What city? Council president. I wonder what he wants. One way to find out,
do you understand the kind of pain that I’m in? Did you lose your parents tragically? No, you’re very much alive and still a part of my life. And how can you empathize with me? Because I recently learned I was going to be a father. It was a complicated situation. I broke up with my ex and she decided she was gonna have the baby first.
And way we agreed we were gonna co-parent. I was really happy
she decided to have an abortion. She had entered her pregnancy before I even knew it was done. That must have been very painful. Yes, it was. And compounding the pain. It’s the woman that I love went behind my back and she told my act to her pregnancy. I’m sorry.
I am guessing something stemming from that situation is what, uh, landed you in this posh establishment. Give the lady a price. Sounds like we both got screwed. I don’t know about you, but I’m not the type of person to just roll over and take it. Someone pushes me, I push back. I’m a fighter and I’m willing to fight for you if you’d let me.
Well, what exactly did Nicole say to you? Well, she asked me why I’d wanna be tied to a man forever. Who didn’t love me, and she reminded me of how incredibly difficult that would be. What, yeah. And then she ran down a list of reasons of why single motherhood would suck, and that even if I, you know, had this baby and was juggling a child and being a cop, that I would feel at both, even with Eric’s support, I cannot believe Nicole did that I can, she was not going to let anything stand in the way between her and Eric.
Not me, not her marriage to you. I’m definitely not my pregnancy. You and Rafer getting divorced. What? Johnny? Johnny, that’s none of your concern. You’re right. You’re right. And, uh, sorry for prying Nicole, and I’m sorry for jumping to conclusions about what I walked in on. It’s okay. EJ was nice enough to offer me and Holly a place to stay after I blew up my life yet again.
That’s all this was. Now if you gentlemen will excuse me. Um, I’m gonna go take a shower and get to the office.
Well, that was awkward. Ever hear of knocking? Yeah. Yeah. I would have. I just didn’t think I needed to. I, I wanted to feel close to, uh, grandma Susan. She and I spent a lot of time together in this room, and I thought maybe I’d feel her spirit or something. I don’t know. It was, it was dumb. No, it’s not dumb and all.
Son, would you like me to move Nicole to a different room? No, no, no. Grandma was, she was all about being generous. She’d liked that someone you care about staying here and I’m sorry for going off on you earlier. Ah, I suppose I can’t blame you for thinking the worst of me, given what you learned in Jakarta, that Lee and Rolf brainwashed your brother and you kept quiet.
I was under the impression that you were going to keep quiet about it as well. I hope you’re not having second thoughts, son. There’s just so much bad blood between Sammy and me. The last thing I want is to be estranged from Eric too. Well, it sounds like you’ve made up your mind. Well, I have, but this still concerns you.
So if you don’t want me to, Hey, Val, listen to me. I would never wanna stand in the way of you representing your. All right. I want you to do what you feel is right. You are the best husband ever, . All right, I’ll go tell Eric that you decided to take his case. That right, it won’t be necessary. I’m sorry. You don’t have to defend me, sis.
I heard someone else. Who
I see. Well, uh, thank you for reaching out to me directly gas. Oh, yes, yes. I’ll, I’ll, uh, I’ll get back to you with an answer as soon as. Please do not tell me he’s asking you to cut some damn ribbon when your family’s in crisis. It’s a bit more pressing than that. Well, what is it, Abe? The city council is asking me to resign as mayor effective immediately.
The city council is asking you to resign as soon as possible. Well, why? Why? Why are they doing this? Well, the way ca put it, the optics are not good. The mayor of being married to the governor elect, who allegedly is covering up a murder, optics are not the truth. Now, someone over there asked to know that I’m the reason, I’m the reason why they want Abe to reside, and I’m the reason why you can’t enjoy your big win.
Oh, no baby. No, no. I’m sorry mama. I have to go. Hello. Chanel. Chanel.
Okay, Eric, you’re angry with me. That’s fine. Be angry, but do not hire this snake out of spite. Find someone else. Anyone else you call Justin. Kek. I think I was in preschool the last time. That guy won a case. Shut up. Hey, don’t talk to my lawyer that way. Well, you wouldn’t be defending her if you knew how she operated.
Do you know what she’s doing to Paul and Chanel what I’m doing to them? How about what they did to me? That little slut murdered my mother and then her mommy goes and papered over her with hush money. Okay, Eric, if nothing. Think about what hiring her is gonna say to Abe. As far as I know, Abe’s always up for justice.
Yeah. Well, Sloan’s not out for justice. She’s out for revenge. And anything that will inflict the most amount of pain on Abe’s family. Yeah. From what I understand, Ms. Peterson here, she exposed a crime and coverup. So if anyone’s the victim, it’s her.
Hey, where the hell does Nicole get? After everything that went down. Instead of leaving you alone, she decides to lecture you especially about something that’s so personal and so private free. Listen, don’t misunderstand me, it was 100% my decision to have this abortion. If I was ready to be a mother, no one, especially Nicole would change my mind about that.
Okay? Yeah, that’s fine. But she’s still, she had no right to pressure you. Oh man. You know, I forgot how incredibly selfish Nicole can be when she’s trying to get something that she wants. And what she wants and has always wanted is Eric,
well, this, now there’s one less obstacle on her way. I wouldn’t be so sure about that. What does that mean? Let’s just say. Eric wasn’t too happy when he found out that she interfered.
I told you, I’ll keep my mouth shut and I will. What about Lee’s little sister? Wendy’s not gonna say anything. You need to look, relax. Got nothing to worry about.
Thank you, son. Don’t, don’t thank me. I feel horrible about keeping this secret. I think Stephan has a right. So you said, yeah, I’ll say it again. What Ralph did, erasing Stephan’s memories for Gabby. That’s messed up. Like I said before, I didn’t become aware of the brainwashing until after the fact. Didn’t stop from taking advantage of it, using it to take the company back, and I will not apologize for that.
For doing what was absolutely necessary to protect father’s company and your legacy. This was about family Giovanni. Is the only reason Wendy and I are keeping our mouth shut as wrong as we both think this is. She doesn’t wanna destroy your brother’s life, and I I don’t wanna destroy yours either.
You’re suffering enough after losing Grandma. We all are.
Well, Chanel’s not picking up. You want me to go find her? No, no. Give her a little space. She’ll calm down. But you, you must be asking yourself if jumping that broom with me on Juneteenth for such a good idea. You wouldn’t, would never regret marrying you. Even if, um, I’m about to cost you your. You know, I already intended to step down as mayor and accompany you to the state capitol.
That was before Sloane Peterson dropped this bomb on us. Well, she’s not going to derail plans. Oh, hey babe. Come on. We’re at the center of an international scandal. Now, even if I took off that, which has already ruined my chances of being a successful governor, oh, we don’t know that. Well, here’s what I do.
There’s absolutely no reason for you to bow out when I’ll probably never even be sworn in.
Hey, uh, is, is Wendy home? Uh, no. I, I think that she probably went to work and. Ali is at the bakery and I, I’m all alone. Chanelle, what’s going on? You okay? Ho? No I’m not.
You hurt me correctly, Ms. Trask. I no longer wish to press charges against Eric Brady. I see no reason to continue to waste our time or the taxpayer’s money on such an unfortunate. Thank you for doing that. I know how hard it is to resist the urge to stick it to Eric. I promised you I dropped the charges and I’m nothing if not a man of my word, generally speaking.
Of course, . Of course. Well, I’m gonna get going. I look forward to seeing you tonight for dinner. I’ll have chef. Make us up a nice dinner with a special dessert for Holly. Oh, and I’ve also asked Harold to get her room ready right next to yours. Of course, ej, uh, about us moving in. Mm-hmm. , I’m not sure it’s a good idea.
Eric, listen to me. I know that you’re going through a hard time right now. I’m fine. No, you’re not. You just spent the night in jail, which is where sharks like Sloan Peterson spend their time circling trying to get to vulnerable people like you, please. And I’m sure she gave you her big pitch about how she’s the best, right?
But don’t fall for that. Why are you making such a big deal? Except that her offer, because my own sister refused. Bella wants to take your case. You changed her mind, Eric. Yeah. We’re a little too late for that, isn’t it? Okay, great. Then unsettled. So why don’t we walk across the street and see about getting these ridiculous charges dropped?
Sounds like a good idea. It’s trash. Detective Brady,
and what if I choose not to?
Okay. All right. All right. I’ll let them out. What was that about? Well, uh, EJ declined pressing charges against Eric. Excellent. That means the DA doesn’t have a case unless you want to be responsible for prosecuting your brother-in-law. It’s not that simple. Why? What do you mean? SK is going after Eric for assaulting a police officer, whether I wanted to or not.
I thought you wanted to move in. I did, but ej now your son is accusing us of having an affair . So, so that, that doesn’t bother you. It was a misunderstanding. Well, even if it was how, how long until the rest of your family starts gossiping about us and then the entire town. Look . My life is a hot mess.
Right now, and, and I really, I don’t wanna deal with this since when does Nicole Walker give a rat’s ass what anyone in Sadam thinks? Uh, since I now have a young daughter, but not so young that she wouldn’t notice dirty looks when I drop her off at school. Or whispers and finger pointing when we walk through the square.
I just don’t wanna expose Holly to that. Would you be doing anything wrong by living?
No. Would you be choosing the best possible situation for your family, I suppose then it’s settled. You and Holly are going to move in here and you can stay for as long as you want. Anyone who has an opinion on that can bloody well shove it.
Glad you decided to eat something. Thanks for looking out for me, boss Hunter. I will always have your back on the job or off. I appreciate that and I hope I didn’t come off as petty earlier. No matter how I feel about Nicole, I mean she is still your wife, not for much longer even so I shouldn’t have gotten.
I heck not. I mean, it’s understandable. You have every right to be upset. She, uh, she basically ruined your relationship with Eric from day one. Yeah. You meet with all her unannounced visits to his room or her decision to offer him a job, or better yet to come over and give him another comforting hug. Oh, those were great, weren’t they?
I loved walking in on those, but, but, but remember, we’re just friends. Yeah. Friends who can’t keep their hands or lips off of each other. I mean, Eric said that he was in denial about his feelings about her, and I believe that, but Nicole , you’re right. You know, I don’t think I’ve ever met a more passive aggressive, just selfish.
Sorry, I’m doing it again. No, no, no. Hey, go ahead. Let all out. As much as I love to keep ripping, Nicole, it’s, it’s just not productive, but it’ll feel good. Mm. Not in the long. If I really wanna get past this, I have to rise above. Meaning when I made this decision, I, I had to ask myself, what is it that I really want?
And I decided that it wasn’t being a single mother, not under these circumstances.
It was the hardest decision that I’ve ever made that I, I made it and. I need to honor my decision by focusing all my energy on creating the life that I want. You know, so any trash talking negative self pity, I, I just need to put that aside and do what my daddy taught me and be the bigger person there.
Go d your daddy Marks, he was a wise man. Yeah. So I mean, Nicole. Eric, no more power to her. Obviously, I, I wasn’t up to the task. Don’t sell yourself. Sure. Fix was in. I wish I would’ve known. No, I did know and I chose to ignore it. You know, I, I looked right past the fact that when you get involved with Nicole Walker or Eric Brady, you choose to end up like all the rest that have come before.
Just a speed bump on their never ending road toss. Uh, well, gps let assistant know where the next exit is. . , get me the heck outta here, right? Oh man. Sorry,
Okay. All right. Okay, well, uh, thanks a lot for letting me.
Something up at the station. Yeah, I guess you could say that Eric, spend the night in lockup. What, Sean? Why can’t you just refuse to cooperate with prosecution? Look, Trask has other witnesses from the bar that night. If this goes to trial, she’s gonna call me and I’m gonna have no choice but to testify.
This is outrageous. Who are you calling?
Melinda? SLM Peterson. No, actually I’m calling about my new client, Eric Brady. No, you listen. I just handed you not one, but two career making cases.
And you can settle up by putting an end to this witch hunt against Mr. Brady
Trask. Agreed to drop all the charges, so said I’m free to go. Yes, sir.
I don’t even know how to pay you. Oh, personal check. Venmo, PayPal. We start with breakfast. . I’d like that. Hey Eric, you can’t just leave. We need to talk. There’s nothing left to say.
And surely this, this Sloan person has to know that her mother’s death was an accident. No, she doesn’t. She’s convinced that it’s murder. Can’t you talk to her, help her see things from your side? Oh no. Gee, you don’t understand. She is so angry, so hell bent on revenge that she is not gonna stop. She’s not gonna give.
She is determined to take me down. She has made that her life’s mission. Me and now my mom and Abe, my Aunt Bell will not let that happen. What is already happening? I am destroying my parents’ lives. Yeah. You listen to me, Mrs. Carver. We will get you out of here and get you to Capitol City and we will weather this.
Just like we have every other since you captured my heart. Okay. Okay. You’ll be sworn in as governor and I’ll be right there by your side as first gentleman. Just like we planned. You know, the city council. City Council may have done me a favor. What are you doing? Giving them my answer. Hello Cass. I just wanted to, uh, Give the city council my answer to what they’ve asked of me, and I’ve been, and he has decided he’s not going to step down, not now, not ever.
Eric got drunk and assaulted EJ and. I can’t, Eric’s never even raised his voice. I can’t imagine him putting hands on anyone, let alone a cop. No, you haven’t known Eric that long. It’s not the first time that this guy has spiraled outta control. Really? Oh yeah. He dodged a bullet hunter and something tells me that this is just the beginning of St.
Eric’s fall from.
Whoa. Whoa, buddy. Slow down there. Big guy. Sorry. The food and lockup was akin to something that a cat regurgitated. I was gonna say not great, but yeah, I can be, uh, overly blunt at time some. Sure. You find that very unappealing. Absolutely not. It works for you. It works for me too. And thank you again. I really appreciate this.
Hey, Eric. I’m, I’m glad to see you out. DJ told me he dropped the charges. He had nothing to do with getting me outta lockup, my lawyer did. Thank you. Sloan Peterson, Al Squire. Pleasure to meet you. Nicole Walker. I’m Oh, I know exactly who you are. Mrs. Robbins, Roberts, Keka Dam. Cook Brady Hernandez. I forgetting.
Anybody like me, your reputation precedes you.
Oh, seeing Eric, like this just really scares me. He can handle Sloan maybe, but what about his. You know, he was drinking and driving the last time he was in a place this dark, some really bad things happened. I know. Listen, I understand your concern, honey, but Eric’s come a long way since then. Yes, right now he’s love a rough patch, but he’s gonna get through it.
I pray. You’re right. You have that go Pauline’s waiting for me. You want me to go with you? Help explain, uh, Eric’s choice of attorney. Uh, no, I think I got it. I will. Tell Abe that even though Sloane got her tentacles into my brother, there’s no way in hell I’m gonna let her cause any more damage to his family.
Paulina, what are you doing? You heard me? Councilman Winthrop, my husband is staying put. No, no. You don’t have to worry about any trouble arising from a being married to a governor at an invest. How can I be so sure easy? Because I won’t be Governor Beth. I know. I know. I’ve been elected, but I haven’t been sworn in yet, and I’ve decided that I never will be.
Why didn’t you tell me any of this when we were together? Because I was ashamed. I had an affair with a married man, and I didn’t want anyone know about it. Not you, not Allie, remember, would’ve judged you. I know that now. I honestly thought that all of this was behind me, and then this Sloan Peterson showed up in town and, and then all of a sudden I’m being arrested in the middle of the square.
I’m so sorry I wasn’t here for that. I left Salem at the worst time possible. I I wasn’t here for you. I wasn’t here when my grandma Susan died. What? Your, your grandma died. Allie didn’t tell you? No, but she, she probably didn’t wanna lay anything else on me, but I am so sorry Johnny. I know how much you loved her.
I mean, I’m just going on about my life and, and you, you’re, you must be hurting so bad. I am. Yeah. Um, so is my dad, coach Lee Projections. I know they’re here somewhere. Oof.
So much for instantaneous relief.
I’ll get it housed.
Oh my God.
