Honey. Hi Bonnie. Hi, Justin. We were just about to grab dinner. Um, we’d love for you to join us unless you have other plans. No, I, I don’t, um, I’d actually love to join you. Just I’m afraid I won’t be much company. I’m kind of wiped out. Yeah, I’m sure you’ve been working all out lately. Yeah. Just kinda nonstop trying to find that cure from Elena.

Any. No, unfortunately. And without that orchid we can’t do much. But we are gonna keep trying though. Well, we’re all praying for her. Yeah. So am I actually, Justin, um, I’m really glad I ran into you. There’s, um, something I would like to discuss. What’s that?

I wanna divorce Zander, and I was wondering if you could help me.

Zander, are you in there? I really need to talk to you.

Oh, I’m delighted to see you. Look. You sure you only see one of me? Oh, there’s no time for mass right now. Come in the middle of a major crisis. What we thought, what’s not? I just running ask SCO

son’s wet blanket. Husband is already doing his damnest to convince him that I’m a terrible person who can’t be trusted. Well, I mean, you’ve only made this job so much easier for him with the latest stunt you pulled, you don’t need to rub it in, but you’re. That little bitch Wilhelmina would eat this up if the truth came out.

And even worse, I would lose Sunny’s friendship for good.

So, uh, how’d things go with Stephanie?

It’s over, bro. I just lost the best thing that has ever happened to me,

Stephanie. Chad. Hey, are you busy? I mean, if this is not a good time. No, I’m just, just running some errands. Are you okay? Sounds like you’re crying. Yeah. Things aren’t too great over here. Do you think you could come by? Um, I’m at my parents’ place. I just, I could really use a friend. Yeah, I’m on my way,

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

After what Zandra did to Bonnie, I’d be more than happy to help you divorce him. In fact, I’ll do a pro bono, hell, I’ll even pay you for the privilege of putting that clown through the ringer. That won’t be necessary Justin, but I do appreciate the offer. Can I say something? Yeah, of course, Bonnie. I, I know it’s none of my business, but, um, I think divorce might not be the best idea.

If you’re worried about me taking the case, it’s not a problem for me. I mean, it’s not a, like I owe my cousin any family loyalty. Lord knows. He didn’t show me any loyalty when he kidnapped you. No, I piss not them.

I know this is gonna sound crazy, but I honestly think you should give Xander a second chance.

I have more boos to be delivered, but the liquor store must be walking here from Scotland. Hey, you don’t happen to have any libation on you, do you, mate? Sorry. I’m afraid not, mate. Damn. Life’s so unfair, isn’t it?

Oh my God.

Are you just absolutely sloshed? Wait, I’ve got no self-control, honey. I’m only on my third ball. Yes, so this will keep me going until my delivery arrives. Zander, what’s going on? You mean beside my entire life? Imploding and my family thinking that I’m discovered the earth and Sarah wanting to divorce me.

Hang on. Sarah wants to divorce you. Indeed, she does, and I’m probably going back to prison. No, you were not. Not if I have something to say about it.

So you’re on board with representing me, right? I’m gonna try my best, but this is not a slam dunk, you know? I mean, it’s gonna take some serious. Legal creativity to get you out of this. Xander is the one who kidnapped son’s stepmom. All I did was help him cover it up afterwards, but that’s still a crime.

Me. I know. I know what it means. It means if I don’t play my cards right, this could all still blow up in my adorable.

Bonnie, I can’t believe that you of all people think that I should work things out with Xander. I mean, he kidnapped you and Su I know I was there and believe you me, I was furious when I found out I was him. And now, now what? Now that I’ve had a chance to process everything. Now that I don’t see clowns everywhere that I look, I realize I’ve been a hypocrite.

Where X’s concerned, what are you talking about? How do you remember what I did to Adrian? It was every bit as terrible as what Sandra did, if not worse. And yet you found it. And your big, beautiful heart to forgive me and give me a second chance and look where we are now. We are happy and I’m thinking. If Sarah can find it in her heart to forgive Xander, maybe they could be happy again too.

Bonnie, there is a big difference between you and Xander. You didn’t cause Adrian’s death. If Xander hadn’t a kidnapped Susan, then she might not have died that horrible way. I mean, even if I can. Get over everything that he did to me. How can I get past that?

Rafe came by yesterday and he offered me a deal that would keep me out of prison entirely. That’s great. Brilliant. Yeah. Only if I throw you under the bus.

So what’d you tell him? He said, I need to speak to a lawyer. And so today Leo asked if Sloan Peterson would represent us. He thinks that he, if we both turn on you, we’d get off SCO free. Why? They like the Sky Hub. Good old Leon.

Zander. I came here today because I wanted to tell you I’m not gonna do it. I’m not gonna cooperate with the police. Come hell or high water are you? Tough. Take the damn deal.

Dammit. I never should have agreed to dress up as that stupid clown, especially enough for the pits that Gwen paid me little late for. Regrets Leo. I still can’t believe that you were able to fool Bonnie Lockhart into thinking that you were to clown the kidnapped her. I mean, there must have been one hell of a body suit, excuse me.

It was my performance that sold it. I tapped into my inner Joaquin Phoenix to bring the menace and the pathos to that role. But instead of an Oscar, I’m gonna earn a trip to the slammer. Where is the justice in this? No. Okay. Come stalking it, Joaquin. All right. You’re gonna give yourself a hearty pack,

Alex, I’m really sorry, but I mean, like I said, I, I think it was important for you to come. Well, the thing is, Sonny, I didn’t even get the chance to come clean because by the time I got there, Stephanie had already pretty much figured it out for herself that I am the reason why she didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to tomorrow.

Gotta cut yourself a break. Like I said, it wasn’t cool what you did, but you didn’t know why Chad was calling. It doesn’t matter. Stephanie hates me. Okay? Cuz she just suffered a major loss. But give her time. I mean, once she’s had a chance to process, solve it and, and once she. S some time to process all of it.

Son, she’s still gonna hate me. She’s still gonna blame me for depriving her of her last moments with her dying mother, and why wouldn’t she? That is exactly what I did.

She told me she never wants to see me again, and I think she meant it with every fiber of her being.

Sorry for making you come back over here. I needed to talk to someone. You were the first person who came to mind. Of course. What’s going on? Is it about your mom? Yeah, it is. It’s about my not getting to see her before she died. It’s about Alex, what he did.

He turned off your phone so you couldn’t get my calls. How did you know? Sonny told me only because he, he knew that Alex was gonna come over here and confess. Yeah. Well, no confession was necessary. I was able to piece things together before he got here. So what happened when you confronted him? He tried to apologize, but Chad, what he did was unforgivable.

Alex, I missed my last chance to see my mom before she died, so Alex and I were done for good.

Look, Steph, you have every reason to be mad as hell at Alex. But in his defense, he didn’t know why I was calling. He just wanted to be alone with you, . I don’t give a damn what he wanted. He had no right to turn off my phone. It was a total violation. I I get it.

I get it That he was already annoyed that I, that, that you and I had spent the day together and then, you know, I intruded on your romantic evening together. On Christmas Eve, so you know, it makes sense that he wouldn’t want me interrupting you guys again, God, but you wouldn’t have been interrupting if you had called about anything.

But my mom, I would’ve told you I was busy, but Alex didn’t trust me to do that, so he took that choice away from me. And so I missed my last chance to say goodbye to my mom before she died. Would’ve meant everything to me, Chad, and to her. And now cause of Alex. It’s too late. It’s too late. I’m sorry, Steph.

Just telling her what? How can I help?

It’s gotta be least 10 below out there kinda dreading going home,

so don’t

stay the night. I mean, if you want to, of course there’s no pressure.

Actually, I.

I can’t stay here.

Sorry. You’re not really being fair here. I mean, Susan’s death was not Sandra’s fault. In the end, he let her go just like he did me. And believe me, I am not condoning what. But I can’t understand the position he was in because I’ve been there too. Stuck doing something you don’t wanna do, but unable to see a way out.

Maybe it’s like a delayed Stockholm syndrome or I know what that is. I saw a documentary and believe me, this is not that, honey. You know what I’m talking about, right? About forgiveness. My wife has one of the biggest hearts of anyone I know. And while I personally believe that she may be a little too charitable in this case, she may have a point.

Honey, we’re just trying to help you because we knew how much you love Z and how great you guys are together. And what Bonnie’s trying to say is that this whole thing was. Only recently blew up, so maybe you should just take a little more time before you really make the decision to end your marriage.

Forget it, zander, that there’s, there’s no way that I’m going to sell you out to the cops. Nothing you can say is gonna change my mind.

And what do you want in return? Not a thing.

Are you sure? Cause you’ve told me more than once that I owe you one since I’m probably going back to prison. If there is something that you want from me, now’s the time to collect.

So let’s get down to business. How soon can you get me a deal to testify against Xander? Anonymously of. You do realize whenever you say anonymously, it means that nobody would know my identity. Yes, I know what the word anonymous means. It’s just not that simple, I’m afraid. You see, Zander has the legal right to know who his accuser is.

I mean, even though you can be anonymous to the public, I mean, Xander has to know who’s testifying against him. Excuse me. Who came up with that idiotic rule? It’s the sixth Amendment. Besides, his lawyers are gonna want the chance to cross-examine. I mean, they’re gonna wanna debunk your testimony. What if I were a veil, a really thick one so nobody could see my features and I could change my voice?

You really think that’s gonna work? I think Xander’s gonna know exactly who you are. Okay. So even if Xander has to know, is there any way to prevent him from telling anybody else, like isn’t there some sort of court rule about witness confidentiality? There is nothing that can stop Xander from telling anyone who will listen that you are the one that turned on him.

So then Sonny would still know what I did. But at least you won’t be in present. Not good enough. Ali McBeal. I do not. I repeat. I do not want Sunny finding out the truth.

Well, hey. Hi. Hey. Oh, I’m so glad to see you. I saw your bags at the house and I figured you must have come here. Have you been able to see your grandma Marlene again? No, not yet. They’re only letting in two people at a time, but hopefully I’ll be able to get in soon. I’m so sorry again about Okay, thanks.

Have you been able to spend any time with the rest of your family? Um, yeah, they’re in the chapel praying. I just came from dropping off Julie’s. Okay. Well, do you wanna go back and join them? Actually, uh, I’m, I’m glad we have a moment alone because son, there’s something I need to tell you about Leo.

So you’re siding against me too, huh? Justin? Look, I think Zand. He is a very troubled man who has only a nodding acquaintance with the truth most of the time anyway. But I also know that he has on occasion made you very happy. So why don’t you just let the dust settle a bit? There’s no need to file for divorce right away.

Maybe you guys could try a little doubles. My sessions with Marlene have done wonders for my PTs. D I can finally go back to McDonald’s without freaking out

I dunno. I mean, Xander has lied to me and betrayed me so many times over the years. How can I believe that he will never do it again? And even if I can find a way to trust him, isn’t it all a moot point if he ends up in prison? You’re right. I do want something from you. I’m my son.

I want you. To stop being so bloody defeatist and pull yourself together, cook for goodness sake, what’s the point? Sarah’s divorcing me. I’m heading back to this. Oh, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. Stop your bloody whining. Like everything’s so hopeless. I’m not gonna let you just roll over and give up. You’re gonna fight for your marriage, and you’re gonna fight for your freedom.

How? Well, first of all, we’re gonna sober you up, right? And then we’re gonna come up with a game plan. That’s enough. Come on then. You love. Well we got, well you stink now with booze and defeat, so just go in there. We’re gonna shower both. Come off. Come on. I still think you should go for the plea deal. If you help trash land this big fish, you, my little gpi will be off the hook.

I’d rather keep my mouth shut and take my chances. At least this way. Son won’t know what I did. Are you kidding me? You would rather risk. Then have your friend know you did something shady, . I mean, you really have a bad for him. . What? That is ridiculous. He’s not even my type. Okay. Enough with the side eye.

It’s like your eyes are bearing a hole into my psyche. Okay, fine. He’s He’s handsome. He’s funny, he’s kind. He’s completely wonderful. He’s totally my type. Oh my God. I’m completely crushing on him again. Leo knew that Xander was the one who kidnapped Susan and Bonnie. Mm-hmm. . Andy helped cover it up. Yeah.

He put on a body suit and pretended to be the kidnapper to get Xander off the hook. No, but Sarah was so sure that Gwen was the one guy in all of it because she paid Leo to do it. I can’t believe this. You’re sure you didn’t misunderstand all? I’m sure he laid out the whole plan for his attorney. He’s hoping to cut some kind of plea deal and he’s desperate to keep you from finding out.

Thank God that’s sneaky son, a bitch.

I’ve been denying it to myself. But Sunny does make me go weaken the knees. It’s the white tank tops. Not to mention the adorable face, the width, the charm, the kindness. Great head of hair. Well, I think it’s obvious that you have great appreciation for this guy’s, many attributes, but unless I’m missing something, I mean, isn’t he married?

Yes, but they’ve hit a rough patch all on their own, by the way. Nothing to do with me and they live in separate cities. Wouldn’t take much for that marriage to. And you think that if that happens, that Sonny’s just gonna turn to you? I can hope, can’t I? Uh, we were married once before. Our chemistry is still off the charts.

But even if that rosy little fantasy is not to be, I still wanna be his friend. I wanna keep Sonny in my life any way I can.

I, is it okay if I leave you here for a little? Yeah, of course. I’ll, I’ll be fine. Okay, son. Um, tell Leo that Wilhelmina says hello. Also good ridin. Go to hell and screw you. I’ll pass it along.

What’s with the Solo Act? Keri Aus. Where’s your little girlfriend who don’t play Coy? I heard you and Stephanie Johnson were practically attached at the hip. In all truth, I was a little offended that you never sent me a thank you. And why? Sharon, thank you. Only I or am I not? The reason that the two of you ended up together, I figure Ms.

Johnson was so grateful that you sold that file for me. She just decided she had to give you the time of day. Hmm. You know what? You’re not that far off. I figured as much, but in spite of that, You’re unintentionally getting Ms. Johnson, and give me the time of day as you put it. That’s over now. And that to state the obvious is because I am a total jerk, egotistical, selfish, dishonest, misogynistic, arrogant.

To put it nice and short, I screwed.

My world famous spaghetti and meat, the molds. Wow. Is this an old Dara family recipe? Um, no actually. Uh, taught me how to make this one.

Chad, I’m, I didn’t get a chance to say this before, but I’m, I’m so sorry for your loss. I know Kate was like a mother to you. Yeah, she was. Um, I think she actually probably understood me more than my own parents did. I mean, she was, She was hard as hell on me, but, uh, but she . She uh, she always looked at my spirit

well, I’d like to propose a toast to Kate. Gone but not forgotten.

Then feeling better. Oh, I mean, yeah, I feel a bit, a little bit more alert, but now I’m soaking wet and miserable, so thanks very much. All right. Well, good thing is, is you can change out of wet clothes. We’ve put on some dry ones, I think. Yeah, you should probably get changed too. Okay. Sarah left this behind.

Yes, as I said, that’s um, not really to my taste. Why about this? Is this more to your taste? Oh, yes, that is. Thank you. Much better.

Maybe they’ll end a hat. What does Sloane know about my skills at disguise?

Hey, I didn’t know you were home. Just got back. Well, fyi, your hub’s in town. He stopped by earlier. Oh, I know. I just ran into him at the hospital. Oh, well good. Since you’re here, you wanna have some dinner? I was about to have cook whip something up. There’s no need. Not gonna be here for long. Neither are you.

You, you need a pack of things in gal Do What? What’s going on? Oh wait. It was Wilhelmina, wasn’t it? She was going on and on again about what a menace I am. What a pathetic loser. And told you to throw me out. She doesn’t want me anywhere near you.

No, I don’t want you anywhere near me. Why Jackson? What’s going on? I know what you did. I know you were involved in Bonnie’s kidnapping.

Thank you. For dinner and for the company. It was just what I. . Good.

You know what we need now? Dessert. I know a place. I’m gonna go get somewhere. No, no. You will go nowhere. I’m sure we have something sweet hiding in here.

Oh my God. What is it? It’s one of my mom’s apple pies. She left a note on it

for Steph, made this for you since you missed out on Christmas. Love.

I knew it’s monogamy equals monotony as you used to always say. So tell me how long was it before you got bored and strayed? That is not what happened. Stephanie’s mom died. So she founded you because her mom died? No, she dumped me because she didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to her. Which was entirely my fault.

How so?

I was get just getting sick and tired of Chad Damara hanging around. And the night that Stephanie’s mom died, Stephanie and I were together. She went into the bathroom, the phone kept bringing, it was Chad again. So I took the phone and I turned it off. The thing is, Chad was calling to tell her that her mom was dying.

Oh wow. You really, I did screw up. Thank you for confirming that.

Do you think there’s any chance that I could fix this? No, not a chance. When my mom died, I, I would’ve given anything to have had one last chance to say goodbye to her. And if some guy got in the way of me doing that, I mean, I’d hate him for the rest of my life.

Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Son, you’ve got this all wrong. Knock it off. Leo will overheard you talking to Sloan and he told me everything. Oh, that nosy little twerp. Was he stalking you? How could you, how could you do this to me? How could you hurt my family like this after everything I’ve done for you? I mean, I, I, I helped you look for a job.

I, I I put a roof over your head. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I, I needed the money. I, at the time, it seemed like a harmless prank. A harmless prank. Bonnie was scared to death. She’d already been kidnapped once. And then, then you Alexander her, kidnapped her again? No, no, no. Technically I had nothing to do with the kidnapping.

Technically, you know what? Technically you’re guilty as hell. You stayed in this house, you knew what Sandra did, and you said nothing. You saw how traumatized body was. You saw how concerned my dad was, and still you lived under this roof and you said nothing. Okay? Okay. I screwed up. I’m sorry. I know that I messed up.

I deeply regret it. And Sonny, please, please, if you could just be that incredibly understanding and kind person that you are and gimme another chance, please. You are the only true friend I have ever had. The only person who has ever believed in me, who has seen the good. I promise. I promise you I will do better.

I will. I will make amends. I will grovel to everyone I have hurt, especially you. Please, sunny, if you could just find it in that. Enormous heart of yours to, to, to forgive me. No. Please. No, I’m not making that mistake again. Leo, I vouched for you. I got in a huge fight with my husband because I insisted that you would change that.

You were like this better person, . I I am. I’m becoming a better person. I’m doing that for you. No. Oh my God. No. Will was right. You’re still just a despicable, selfish con artist, and that’s what you’ll always be, son. No, don’t say that.

Do you wanna know what the craziest part is?

I actually started to think that you wanna have a friend.

We were we. We are. No, we’re not friends. Leah, you are not my friend. You are nothing to me.

Now get out of this house before I have you thrown up.

I’d feel so badly for Sarah. I mean, she may be all fussed and fury when it comes to Xander, but I could tell underneath she still loves him. So, oh, Justin, there may still be hope for them, yet you are incredible. You know that No, of course I am . Not seriously. What have I done? Xander terrorized you. Okay? He made you so afraid that you didn’t wanna leave the house.

Now here you are sticking up for him, rooting for him to save his marriage. I’ve been where he’s been and I tell you, I feel for the guy. Hi. Tonight, Bonnie, my Love. You have once again proven to me that you are one of the best people I know and I’m so lucky to have you. Oh my God. Back at you babe. Back at you.

Sorry. Sorry, I thought you’d be done dressing by now. God, these Travis holes keep moving about. Oh, finally, it’s a liquor store. No. Oh. If no, you’ve had too much to drink, I’m just gonna tell him to get lost.

What the hell is this?

This pie is amazing. I know, right? I know. When your mom made it is just, it makes it that much more. I’m very grateful that I get to. Share this with you.

I’m just glad I found it. She would’ve been very disappointed if it had gone a waste.

And Chad, thank you for coming over. I don’t know if I could have gotten through this night without you. Anytime.

You really taking this hard, aren’t you? No. So what? The only woman I ever had feelings for, never wants to see me again. No big deal. Stupid question. Yeah, very stupid question. How does somebody not take it hard when you feel like your life is over? When, when, when you don’t know how you’re gonna get through the rest of the day?

Alex, honey, you made the fatal mistake of getting emotionally involved. See, this is why no strings attached is always the way to go. But for what it’s worth, I’m sorry. Nothing is worse than a broken heart or so they say.

As soon as Leo’s gone, I’ll meet you back at the hospital. Okay. Take your time. Getting him out of our lives is the top priority. Yeah, you were right about him. I sh I should have listened to you. No, I’m just sorry that he hurts you again.

I have to go. Okay. I, I love you. I love you too.

Are you gonna tell the police about what I did?

I don’t know. I haven’t decided.

Son, before I go, there’s one thing I want you to know.

I really did care about you. Your friendship meant means everything to me. Come on. You were just playing me the entire time. I wasn’t. The bond we had, it was real. It was sweet and special and great and I am certain that deep down, you know that’s true.

I am so very sorry, Jackson,

for everything.

And you coming here was a huge mistake. Sarah, this is not what you think. She’s right. Sarah, you gotta, you gotta let me

disgust me, Sarah, wait.
