THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Ah, wow. We went from record low temperatures in New York City to record highs in Miami. I’m melting in these clothes. Well, only one solution to that problem. Take ’em off.
You. Okay? I wanna be, but for no reason at all. I have a raging case of pre-warning jitters, shorts of breath and shaky hands. Intonations of doom. Here. Sit down. Um, it doesn’t make any sense. I mean, I’ve been married before. It’s not like I’m afraid of the wedding night. What am I even doing? I’m supposed to be getting Ari some tea.
Sit. I’ll get it. Thank you.
So, um, are the nerves you have in general or is there something particular you’re worried about? I don’t know. I just. You can’t shake the feeling like something’s gonna go horribly wrong.
Hey, her, it’s uh, it’s Brady. Listen, Chris and I are gonna leave in a couple of minutes plan to keep her at the reception at least until midnight. So that should give you more than enough time to get Rachel out. I hope we’re doing the right thing, man.
Kristen, uh, we we should get going.
What? Why don’t you dress for the wedding? I’m not going.
Hi. I’m sorry I’m late. My hair wasn’t cooperating. It’s fine. In fact, Gabby better watch out. You can upstage the pride.
Why do you feel like something’s going to go wrong? I don’t know.
How are you having second thoughts? Do you think you’re making a mistake? No. No, no, no, no. I, I love Lee very much and I’m very happy. It’s just, it’s just been a crazy couple of months and maybe I feel like I don’t deserve to be happy.
I think you do. I think my brother is a very lucky man. Thank you. Yeah, I’m just being weird. Uh, and it doesn’t help that Ari’s. Only wired and maybe this will calmer down.
Hello. Hey, uh, what color is your. Why? Well, I’m trying to, I got a tie. Johnny, just pick one you like, okay. I’m sure it’ll be fine. You sound strange. You okay? I suppose I should have turned down the champagne. Champagne. Gabby started the party pretty early and she’s lots of fun, but I was already a bundle of nerves and now she is too.
Really? I think deep down she’s having doubts about marrying Lee. Did. You, did? Did you say something? No, I didn’t say something, but I’m having a harder time than ever knowing that I’m keeping a secret from the bride.
Hey, Lee, your phones ring in.
Supposed to be checking in. Yes. Hello. Oh, Mr. Shin. Visit Dr. Behem. Rolf
like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
What do you mean you’re not going to the wedding? Well, I’m not gonna leave Rachel alone. I, I just saw John and Marlena driving off. I forgot to tell you. Okay. I, I felt bad. They love going out on New Year’s Eve, so I just asked Eric to come babysit instead. I see you without asking me if it was okay. Eric is great with kids and honestly, he was the only person that, uh, I could find that didn’t have anything going on tonight.
I think he was grateful to have something to do, so it all worked out, right? Mm-hmm. , I guess, seems to me like you went through a lot of trouble, so I could go to this wedding with you. Well, like I said, I have expected you to force me to go with you. And remind me that you have Marlena’s life in your hands.
So I guess I thought I would just have a better time if it was my idea. Huh?
Are you sure? That’s all it is.
Thank you. But the last thing I wanna do is upstage Gabby at her own wedding. I’m that thoughtful view. No, it’s self-protection cuz I sure as hell don’t want to draw her fire. She’s already ticked off that. Lee invited me after how I treated her brother. Ah, from Lee’s point of view, it would’ve been bad form to snap the mirror leadership, but as you know, Gabby feels the same way about me.
So we can be prized together, we’re heading to the same place. I’d be happy to give you a lift. Thanks. That that’s, that’s kind of you but it, it’s, it’s not necessary. Think of our carbon footprints and you might need someone to help you cut your rubber chicken. . I’ll have you know that my left-handed you pencil skills have gotten better.
Mm-hmm. . But there’s one thing I could use your help with that. Can you sit me up? I thought you’d never asked.
Mr. Shin? No, this isn’t Mr. Shin. This is Commissioner Ray Fernandez. Oh, ah. I’m curious as to what business you have with Lee. Is that the j? No, it’s Dr. Rolf. He wants to speak to you.
Sorry. Gotta go.
So are you ready for me to help you get ready? Well, that can wait. I mean, I just heard you on the phone. Exactly. What secret have you been keeping from me?
What are you doing in the tux? I could ask you the same thing. Where you going to see Lee Shin shackle himself to Gabby Hernandez? It’s a grim prospect, but at least I get to celebrate that her last name will no longer be Damira. How about you? Uh, . I’m going to Wendy ask me, you two are planning on making something seen.
Are you? How many times we have to promise you, we are not going to tell anyone that. You know, Dr. Roth brainwashed Uncle Stephan, you know, given Stefan’s emotional depth, I think a light rinse could have done the trick. . That’s, that’s so funny. Dad, this whole thing is just so hilarious.
I’m finally ready. You know one too. We’ll be representing Damira Enterprises. Yep. A break. You know what? Nevermind. I’m sorry. Don’t be. Yes, Rafe is gonna be there. So you imagine how thrilled I am about going . But Johnny, you look fabulous. Got big plans tonight. Johnny will also be attending the wedding. Oh, as Wendy Shin’s date.
Wendy is. Gabby’s made of honor, so she’s getting ready with her. Hey, do you guys mind if I snug a ride? Not at all. The more the merrier, you know, I think this wedding is going to be a perfect ending to a rather ghastly year.
How the hell did you get this number? You gave it to me. I didn’t think you’d be so foolish just to allow someone else to answer your phone. What do you want? I’ve been collecting some new data and there’s something very important that you should know. It’s my wedding day and I’m not about to talk business with anyone.
Let alone you. Goodbye and don’t call back the nerve of that man. He said he wants Dara to fund his new lab. Turn him down flat. Don’t want anything more to do with. They’re all bet, especially considering he brought Gabby’s ex-husband back from the dead. I’m not threatened by Stephan. Why would I be in a couple of hours?
Gabby and I will be married.
The secret is go on.
The secret is something Lee’s been planning for your wedding night. I’ve been helping him with it. Gabby, you kill me if he found out I ruined it. So could you just forget you heard anything? No problem. I can’t wait to see what it is. , neither can I Actually, the reason I came down here was to give you this, you know, for putting up with my bride SIL aways with a smile.
It’s beautiful. Why I designed it myself. Just for you. You shouldn’t have it. It’s too much. No, don’t, don’t be silly. It’s actually, let me, let me read to you the, um, inscription here. It says That translates to, um, sisters. I mean, I knew I liked you the minute I met you. Going toe to toe with Lee sticking up for yourself.
That kind of woman. You know, I, I lost my sister. How have you?
Why else would I ask you to go with me to the. I dunno. Maybe there’s a part of you that wants to walk in with me on your arm. Christ. Hmm. Oh, maybe not a conscious part. I mean, you did kiss a nun thinking it was me. Hmm. And now that Chloe is. Off in Miami with Stephan and she made it a big point to move on.
Maybe you’re, uh, realizing it’s time to look to the future with me.
Uh, take off my clothes. I’m stuck. You know, we haven’t really had a chance. anything right today, which is why I was suggesting that we get out of our clothes into something fancy. We can go have a nice dinner and. See where the night takes us. Oh, I like the sound of that. Hmm.
Ariana just started drawing up. Yeah. I mean, I should have known it was more than just nerves. There’s been a stomach virus going around. I mean, I can’t leave her here. I can’t take her to the wedding. I don’t know what I’m gonna do.
Wow. Wow. You, you look great . Uh, sorry that that was, uh, too much. I thought it came across as nice, flattering because you know, normally you’re, you’re not chasing after criminals in four inch heels and you look, I mean, you know, you always look, you know what I mean? Yeah, yeah. Um, and if it’s not too inappropriate, I would like to say that you don’t look half bad yourself.
Uh, thanks . So I, I’m glad you, uh, glad you’re here. This is great. And you know, it promises to be quite a party. The groom’s last name is Shin. Uh, if you like wretched excess, I do actually. Good. And it, uh, sure beats watching the ball drop, send at home alone. Eating a bag of chips. . Yeah. Well, I promise it won’t be.
Wait, this is your first Salem wedding, isn’t it? It is. I’ve never been to a Salem wedding, but I did take a two semester course, uh, for Salem weddings at the police academy. Yeah. They do tend to be high drama and high risk apparently. Yeah. Well, let’s hope tonight is the exception to that, uh, right. Yeah.
For my sister’s sake, cuz it’s been quite the rocky road to the. Yeah. Sorry to hear that. Yeah. Wow. I have a feeling it’s gonna be smooth. Saily,
shall we? Yeah.
Good. Yeah, I’m good. Yeah.
Anyone I could call to stay with Ari is already going to the wedding. I mean, who’s gonna wanna take care of a vomiting? I could stay with her. No, I wouldn’t ask that of, of you. Plus she’s probably contagious then I don’t see any other options unless, unless you post home the wedding.
I dunno why you thought you had to rush us out of the housely. No one’s here. Well, least a few people got to see you walking in on my arm. Yeah, knowing me now. Oh no. There’s always a few familiar face. Hey. Hi. Hi. How are you feeling? Uh, you know, I’m, I’m, I’m much better and I’ll be getting back to work after the holidays.
Kristen, you and Brady look so domestic together, or is it just that Brady looks so domesticated? , you know, at first I felt, um, That you excluded me from your mother’s funeral, but it looks like I dodged a bullet or a bomb
It’s always about you, isn’t it? Come on, Nicole, let’s go grab a drink, all three. I.
Hi, is this on my son? People get a little touchy sometimes when you make jokes about their dead mother. Mm-hmm. such thin skin. No. Let’s find our seats. Oh, wait, wait, wait, wait. I promised Rachel that I was going to take a picture of us in our fancy outfits at Fancy Wedding. Okay.
What’s this? Well, I figured we were both pretty hungry and maybe a little bit tired, so I thought we would eat first and then God, after a man after my own heart. This looks amazing. Good. Turns out I’m an expert at ordering room service. So why don’t you relax, take a load off. I will Open the wine and light the candles.
Hmm. Delicious. And why you do that? I’m gonna check to see that my mother didn’t post any mortifying pictures of US ice skating mortifying. Come on. Thought we were poetry in mosh.
Oh, this could be uncomfortable.
Um, I think I need a refill.
Are you okay? Yeah, yeah. No, I’m fine. Just didn’t expect her to be here. You okay? I don’t blame the pool for what happened between me and Eric. I just blame her for being a line manipulative. You know what? I’m not even gonna say it. No, no, no, no, no. Go ahead. Because, you know, Cole’s been, uh, saying that her living situation with EJ is purely Potoma, but here they are at my sister’s wedding as a couple, wherever she leaves, her hat is home.
Mm-hmm. . Okay. I’m officially freaking out. Okay. What’s wrong? Gabby’s not here yet. I haven’t heard from her. What if she got cold feet? Postpone. Well, if your daughter couldn’t be there, I’m sure Lee would understand
dinner is served. What’s wrong? Nothing. It’s stupid. I just saw a picture of Brady and Kristen at the wedding. When I ran into Kristen a few days ago. She said that they were getting closer and I just assumed that she was lying. Anyway, the moral of this story is I really should unfollow Brady. Sounds like a plan.
Sorry. You’re. Me too.
Wonder how Stephan and Chloe are enjoying Miami. I mean, this is a big milestone for them. It’s not like they haven’t slept together before. You just love rubbing salt into a womb, don’t you? I wouldn’t say that. It’s kind of pathetic if you ask me. Yeah, you’ve managed to screw up my life seven ways from Sunday, but just because you’ve temporarily derailed Chloe and me doesn’t mean you’re gonna keep us away from each other forever.
Forever. Hmm. Well, she’s with Stephan now. You’re just gonna have to accept that Brady. Yeah. Well, I won’t soon. You’ll have to accept it.
Hmm. Accept. Nothing. Nothing at all.
What’s going on? What’s Gary? We had a little problem. Ariana’s sick. Oh no, not tonight. We got something you to stay with her. Okay. I didn’t wanna call and panic everyone before we had it all worked out. Gabby’s in the brides room now she’s pretty on. Yeah, she’s not the only one. The groom thinks that she has cold feet.
Yeah, I bet. All right. I’m gonna go tell Lee the caveats here. Okay. Oh, hey, how you doing, John? I’m doing all right. How about you? Uh, good.
Hey, you uh, look great. Thanks. How you hanging in there? Barely hanging in there. Have you heard me on the phone with you before talking about the secret? What I, I told her it was something Lee was planning to surprise her with on her wedding night. We might have to scatter rose petals on their bed. It was Salem in.
Well, let’s just hope that she forgets about the whole thing, Johnny, maybe the universe wanted me to tell her then when I had the perfect.
Hello everyone. I want to apologize for the delay, but please take your seats. We’re about to begin.
I still melt when I see you. Smile like that.
That is a photo that you promised. You can force me to smile. Kristin, you can’t force me to love you, okay? Oh, you do Brady enough? Smile is not forced. And see, our body language is not forced. You’re delusional. Okay? It’s not a picture of two people having fun at a wedding that’s a picture of a black male or her victim.
I am not having any fun. I’m gonna go ring in the new year with someone who appreciates me, like our daughter. Don’t, don’t go you. You can’t.
I’m, I’m sorry that I keep talking about Brady. I guess I just, I still can’t understand why he left me the way that he did. I know, look, Gabby felt the same way about us. She was desperate to know why my feelings for her had changed so completely. Are you absolutely sure that you don’t wanna know?
Why shouldn’t I go home? You never wanted to come with me in the first place. Okay. Look, I’m, I’m, I’m, I’m sorry I hurt your feelings. The wedding’s about to start. Please just, just sit on. I’ll make it up to you. Okay. I think you will.
Please be seated.
Dearly beloved, we are here tonight to join this man and this woman in Matri Moi. If anyone can show just cause why they may not be legally, wed speak now or forever. Hold your peace. Wait, I, I thought we took that part out.
I have something to say.
Jing, what are you doing? I, hi. Hi, ej. Are you.
I just wanna say how happy I am for my brother and Gabby. I always wanted to pick sister. I couldn’t ask for a better one.
That might have been more appropriately said as a Toast Jing, we. That was lovely. Thank you, . Thank you. She always has to be so harsh on her. Give her a break. Sorry. It was a force of heaven. It was lovely. And I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
Back to the script. Back to the script.
Lee, do you take Gabriela to be a wife, to love her, to honor her, to comfort her, to keep her in sickness and in health, forsaking all others for as long as you both shall. I do.
Gabby and I had a very complicated relationship at best, and we spent most of our time hating each other. Even our marriage was a ploy for her to hang on to power at Demer and look who she’s marrying.
You know, maybe a little time and perspective is exactly what I needed to realize. Just how damn toxic she is. I’ve never heard being dead called time and perspective before . Touche. But look, bottom line, I’m glad she’s moved on and I am even more glad that I’ve moved on too Now. Moved back. Because leaving you for Gabby, that’s one of the stupidest things I’ve ever done in my life, and I’m certain that it’s a mistake I’m not gonna make again.
Do you take Lee to be your husband, to love him? To honor. To comfort him in sickness and in health for seeking all others for as long as you both shall live. Yes, I do.
Do you take Lee to be your husband? Uh, I’m so sorry. Yes. Yes. I, I do, of course. Of course I do.
And now, By the power of vested in me, I pronounce you husband and wife Lee. You make his the bride.
Well, Wendy has already given her a toast. I think it’s my turn. Lee, I wanna welcome you to our family. I think it’s great that you and Gabby have worked together, so you already know that she is fierce and determined in business, which is kind of an understatement, , but she’s also fierce with her family and her friends and her loved one.
She will have your back. And as her brother, I can tell you there is no one else that I would rather be in the trenches with than Gabby. Now you’re fierce too, my man. You are. And I can see how much you love her. And together. I know the two of you, the two of you can get through anything, which is good because marriage, marriage can be tough at times.
Things will happen that you, uh, you just didn’t see coming, but I know together the two of you can get through anything. Cause I see how open and honest you are with each other. So whatever life throws at you, I know you will find your way.
I thought I’d turned this off,
Dr. Rolf. Dr. Roll. He called me about funding his new lab. I guess he won’t take no for an answer. I had no idea you two were even in touch.
I really wish you pick up. You need to know that. I’ve just learned c r s 17 can can bear off in their weeks with certain triggers. I hope that doesn’t happen. In Gabriela’s case. Well, dinner’s getting. I don’t know about you, but I don’t wanna spend the whole evening talking about Gabby and Brady. Yeah, sorry.
No, no. Don’t apologize. I’m just so happy to be here with you that I would much rather celebrate the new year than talk about the past works for me.
So Gabby, Did you hate my toast that much? What? Hmm? Yeah, it’s just, you seem a little distracted.
Uh, Debbie, are you all right?
Yeah. Come on, start talking because I’m not just gonna destroy everything in this box. I’m gonna destroy the entire lab. I, I, I remember what, in fact, when I went to see Ro before he left Salem.
One last chance Rolf wanted to do to Stephan. This is your carotid, isn’t it? Alright, right. Alright. You’re right. I brainwashed him. Oh man. Oh my God. He, Ralf had admitted it to me. He, he, he told me, he told me that he brainwashed Stephan, that Stephan did love me, so he made him hate me.
Well, can I introduce some dessert? Ooh, that looks really good, but I cannot eat another bite. Ah, okay, then how about something? It’s not on the menu.
Gabby, let’s go outside. We’ll get some air. Gabby. What do you mean Ralph? Brainwashed? Stephan. She’s confused. Remember Gabby? You told me yourself, Ross, and you believed him. I know, but what I remember now is different. I, when I spoke to Ralph, it’s coming back to me. You need some air? No, no.
I knew it. I knew it. I knew you mixed up and hate me. So nice that you know it. Could you move that scalpel away from my throat? Oh, no, no, no, no. I’ve noticed, I don’t know if you’ve noticed, but you’re more forthcoming with a knife to your neck. But I told you what you wanted to know, and now I wanna know why do you really hate me that much?
Of course I do, but it wasn’t person. I was just, we just following orders. Kristin Dam’s orders.
It was Kristen. It was Kristen. Made him do it.
it was you, you told Ralph to brainwash Stephen, you’re hallucinating. Yeah, she must be, imagine you doing something underhanded. Question is, why would you do this to Stephan? Because, uh, it’s because Kristen, why? She was hoping, so did Stephan. Vanessa. Chloe, he would come between her and Brady. She could have Brady alter herself.
Oh my God. That’s because she wanted to break up. You and Chloe ask a stupid question. Can you believer you can’t claim it’s outta character? You know what I’ll admit, I was at Rolf’s lab when Stephan woke up, but uh, if Rolf did brainwash him, it wasn’t my idea then. Whose wasn’t it?
Yes. She wanted. What does that mean? Kristen wanted to break up Brady and Chloe, but your fiance wanted to protect his investment with Lee, the . He knew everything. He knew all along. I had Stephan on ice. I put the brainwashing . It was his idea.
Gabby. Oh my gosh. It was you. This was your idea. You did this.
