Could your grandma Marlan is hanging in there buddy? She’s got a lot of good doctors around her trying to do everything they can to help. Hey, I, I know you’re scared, Tate. I, um, you just gotta think good thoughts, buddy. That’s, that’s what she needs right now. And I appreciate you calling and checking on everyone.

Sweet of you.

Bye son. Oh God. Brady, Gabby. What? What? What’s wrong? I need to see Marlene now.

Father, of course, I’m not proud of what I’ve done, but I won’t go down for anything. The police can’t prove that I was working with Dr. Rolf and that’s how it’s gonna stay. You don’t have to worry about that either. I position as ej Dara’s second in command is completely intact. Yes, I’m aware. I made an enemy of his brother Stephan.

Arrest assured I can handle him.

I have to go. That might be Gabby.

Harold, can you get that?

It’s time for you to answer for what you did to Kayla.

Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.


what, uh, what brings you by? I’m just invited to make something up for breakfast. I thought you’d be at the hospital. Yeah, I, I was, uh, I was there all night. Um, I just, I, I, I came by to check on my grandpa Roman. I’m sure he appreciated that. Can’t losing. His wife and his sister on the same day. It’s unimaginable.

How are you doing? Ah, I’m, I’m okay. You don’t look okay. I mean, clearly you haven’t slept once. Last a. I, I, I don’t remember.

It’s green that you wanna be there for your family. You have to take care of yourself too. Yeah,

I know. I know. I just, uh, I can’t stop thinking about my grandma, Marna. Well, what are the doctors saying? Has she made any improvement?

Gabby, my lane is in critical condition. Okay. Visitation is strictly limited. This is urgent. Everything depends on it. I don’t understand. Come on. Do I have to spell it out for you? Brady? You were at my wedding when I remembered that Lee brainwashed Stephan into hating me, and, and Stefan wants it undone.

Rolf is Mia a and I need somebody else, namely the renowned Dr. Marlena Evans to make it. So this is about your love life. Are you out of your freaking mind?

You know, this might sound crazy, but I’m glad you’re here. We have a lot to discuss. Clearly you’re angry, which is completely understandable, but I’m confident we can be adults about this. Let’s just have a conversation and hash this out a conversation. Uh, I don’t think so.

I didn’t know you guys were getting in so early I would’ve picked you up. No, no, it’s fine. Airport Ron. Morning rush. You didn’t need that. On top of everything else, I’m just so glad you’re both here. Papa really needs us now. Where’s he? He got up early and went out. I think he needed some time alone. Steve, you don’t wanna do this, I feel for you.

I really do, and I am so sorry for. Sorry. Sorry. Won’t bring my wife back. You knew those women would need boosters to survive and you said nothing. Okay. Just take it easy. Selfish, pathetic, psycho. You couldn’t get Brady to love you, so you decided to blackmail them. You held three lives over his. Meanwhile, that virus was ticking away.

But you didn’t care, did you? No, I did care. Oh, you didn’t care. The only person you cared about was yourself.

If you weren’t so cold blooded at the Ranged, you know, Marlena would be home right now. Kate would be alive, my wife would be alive. Took away the love of my. The mother of my children, then now you need to pay.

I’ve never seen Papa like this before. His instinct as a father, as a pi, you know, is to solve it. Find the solution that’ll make everything okay again. But he can’t this time. We gotta take that stress off him, let him know we’re gonna be okay, and we have to take care of him too. We. Starting the minute he walks through that door.

Look, guys, I, I’m here for that a thousand percent, but while he is out, I need, I need to go see my mom. I’m all, she has left and I can’t turn my back on her. Of course. Thanks. Uh, I won’t be long.

What’s this? A note from mom. Be careful with it. Okay, Steph. Sorry. It’s just she wrote that the day that she, those are her last words to me. Hey, what do you mean? I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to her. Someone robbed me of that.

My grandma, Marlene is not saying goodbye yet. She’s, uh, . She’s, she’s fighting with everything she has and she will win. I mean, this is a woman who beat the devil twice. Yeah. Yeah. But, uh, Wendy, this is, this is bad. This is a deadly disease that they don’t know how to treat. I mean, her doctors are, Obviously, but it’s all experimental.

You know, they’re just, it’s like just throwing everything at it and hoping something works well, something will.

Yeah. That’s what I’m praying for.

Look, I, I wish I could stay and talk more, but I, I really gotta go, go be with your family. Uh oh. Uh, The last time I saw you, you were headed over to Gabby’s, talked to her about giving Lee a second chance. How’d that go? Yeah. Stephan got there before I did. Oh, no. So what he told her that we knew about the brainwashing before the wedding.

E. Yep. So she tore into me and then throw me out. At least should try. Right. But like I told, He and Gabby getting back together, it’s not gonna happen. There’s only one person she wants to be with now.

Ah, , guess I deserve that. Although violence doesn’t seem like stopped, it’s not other way. We’ll say. Connecting with your glass jaw was extremely satisfying. Uh,

relax, pal. I’m not gonna hit you again.

Hello. It is tempting. It’s not every day you find out you were brainwashed.

If you tell anyone who said this, I will deny, deny, deny, but I’m sorry. I know it’s no excuse, but I was desperate. I was desperately in love with Gabby and terrified I would lose her in love. Will have you do some pretty crazy things. In your case, it wasn’t just brainwashing, it was attempted murder.

Do you know that you turned off the machines keeping me alive? You’re damn right. I know.

You know, suddenly I’m thinking maybe one punch wasn’t.

This isn’t about me or my love life. This is about Stephan. I’m sorry to disappoint you, Gabby, but Stephan is not a priority right now. Really, I’m surprised with everything your father’s gone through. You have no compassion for a brainwashed man. Lee took away Stephan’s free will. His ability to, to decide what he feels and he wants it undone.

He wants his mind to be right again. He needs help and I know Marlena would wanna help him. And Gavin, you, you, you know what Marlena wants? She wants not to die. Just like the two women for her who had the disease did. I don’t see the harm in just letting me ask her. I can’t, I can’t flip you serious right now.

She’s hanging on by. She needs every ounce of energy she can possibly muster. Just to stay conscious, you want to just skip the whole death door thing and and book a session with her. You just stop to think how insane that is right now that you’re thinking that, Brady, you need to think about this.

Because Stephan wasn’t just programmed to hate me. He was programmed to love Chloe. So once he’s back to normal, she’s gonna be available again. More unbelievable. I’m sorry, I thought that was gonna make this urgent for you too, but apparently you don’t love Chloe anymore. Of course. I love.

Oh my. I trip . Oh, I’m so happy to see you. . When did you get in? I just said a little while ago. So sorry about your stepmother. I know you two are really close. Thanks. None of us ever imagined that she could relapse, let alone, uh, I just wish I’d been here anyway. Uh, how are you? How are, how are you doing? I’m okay.

Yeah. I heard, uh, some stuff about your brother. I wasn’t really sure if it was true. It seemed pretty out there. Ah, it’s, hmm. Sorry. That sounds rough. Oh, you’d learned one lesson. Stay the hell out of other people’s lives. Hey, what’s going on? Nothing. Gabby and I are just, uh, talking about nothing important.

Lease not to. . Okay. Well I was just here to check on Marlene and see if there’s anything I can do. No, it’s good that someone is here for the right reasons. Am I missing something? Just a wild display of selfishness on Gabby’s part. It’s actually the opposite of selfish. I’m trying to help somebody to care about, she wants Stephan back.

No, shocker. But she thinks the way to do that is to go bug Marlena right now. And that’s not gonna happen. What? You know, forget it. I, I’m leaving. Okay. Chloe, just a heads up. Stephan wants to be the programmed and I will make it happen. So it’s not a question of if he walks away from you, but when Wow, you’re awfully confident.

Yeah, true love always wins.

You’re not gonna deny it, are you? Ah, I pulled the plug. Still can’t believe it. Look, if her, both of us, your sister showed up when she did. Otherwise I’d be dead. Look, you have to understand I wasn’t in my right mind. All I could think was if you came back, the woman I loved would no longer be mine. And as I said before, it’s not an excuse.

I know what I did was reprehensible, but it was a moment of mad. I’m no murderer. Hmm. So you’re going with temporary insanity. That’s what it was. I swear and I regret it. All of it. I mean that s Stephan, I wish there was something I could do to make it up to you. There is Marlena Evans is in the hospital dying of a terrible disease and I need to reverse what was done to.

And there’s one person who can do both. Who? Dr. Rolf, you wanna make up for what you’ve done? You’re gonna help me find him. Sorry, I have no idea where Rolf is. Maybe you should ask your sister. You’re scaring me, Steve. Oh, look. I would’ve done anything to help this woman. I swear to you. We’re going. You swear.

I swear. You do. I do. Really? And why didn’t you come to us with that orchid so we could have made more serum to save their lives? I’ll tell you why. Because you would’ve lost your leverage over Brady. Stop, please. Spiteful bitch. Bitch, you that orchid wasn’t even stolen. I bet you have it hidden somewhere waiting for Marlena to die.

But you love having that power, don’t you? Power to take lives. Guess who has that power? Now? You have made so many innocent people suffer. Now it’s your turn. I want you to think about your family, your. Knowing it’s about to slip away, excuse me.

Please don’t do anything you’re gonna regret, please. Oh,

Alex turned off your phone. That is so unbelievably wrong. I know. I could have been with mom, I could have been comforting her. I could. Holding her hand, telling her how much I love her.

She gave me this when she was sick the first time around. Yeah, I remember It’s Grandma Caroline’s.

I told her I’d give it back to her as soon as she got better, but I didn’t. How much more thoughtless could I be? No, Steph. She gave me this beautiful, generous gesture, and I told her I would do something for her in return, and I just forgot. Once mom got better, I, I took it for granted that she’d stay that way.

Maybe she thinks that’s why I wasn’t there in the end, because I was being so casual and cavalier about it all. I assumed since she got better, once she’d get better again, so it blew her off. Steph. Hey, look at me. Mom would never think that it’s not your fault. You weren’t there. It’s Alex’s God. I never should have gotten involved with him.

Yeah, I was surprised you did. Honestly, after that last guy, I mean, you just said you weren’t ready to get involved with anyone yet. And I wasn’t, and I told Alex numerous times that I, I wasn’t interested in him and that I didn’t wanna date anybody that I worked. So then what happened? He wore me down. I guess he was just so damn persistent.

I decided to give it a shot. Look where that got me. How does that feel? How do you think Kayla felt when she took her last breath? Well, Steve Scott, stop.

Why would Chris know where Rolf is? She employed him for years, but you set him up in Jakarta. It makes sense. That you would move him when things got hot. I can see why you’d think that, but I was surprised as anyone to learn he’d taken off. Must have been a huge relief that he was gone by the time a Indonesian authority showed up.

Huh? Wouldn’t want him flipping on you. You know, I bet I could tear this entire room to shreds and not find a single piece of evidence linking you to Roth. I’m telling you, I don’t know where he is and you’re not in contact. No, obviously you got spooked and went off the grid. If I, if I knew anything, anything at all, I’d tell you, but I don’t, you believe me.

Right. I’ll put it this way. If I find out that you were lying, that punch you just got or feel like a pat on the back compared to what’s coming your way.

You’re gonna want to clear out your desk at Dara. That’s not your call. Ejs the only one who can fire me. You think ejs gonna let you stay on after what you’ve done? Nothing is more important to EJ Dara than family. Nothing.

Nothing more important than covered his own ass.

Rolf, it’s me. So Gabby wants Marlena to undo what Rolf did to step him. She actually thought she could just sail into Marlena’s room and just make her. I mean, I, I shot her down. That’s why she was nastier than usual. Oh, well, she was reason to be nastier to me than usual since I’m with the love of her life.

Yeah. It’s hard to forget. I’m sorry, Brady, that came out the wrong way. It’s, it’s okay. You came here to see Marlina. Yeah. But I know that you’re going through a lot right now too, so I wanted to check on you. I appreciate that. I mean, I mean, does that mean you ? No, uh, sorry, I, I’m not gonna make a fool outta myself.

No, no. Brady, you were never full, and I’m assuming that you wanted to ask me if I had changed my mind about you.

So I’m guessing things with Alex got serious pretty quickly. And that’s why what he did hurts so much. But whatever pain he’s caused me seems so small compared to, it feels wrong to even talk about it. It’s probably because the person you normally talk to about these kinds of things, he’s gone.

She was our rock.

And not to judge dad, but wasn’t always there. Mom was the constant.

Now we have to find a way to be okay without her hop a will too.

It’s just us now.

Damn it. What the hell are you trying to do? Do you, do you, do you want to go to prison? Johnny, listen. You, you need to stay away from Kristen.

Hey. Hey. Just try to catch your breath.

Alright. Hell with. She deserved it. You need to go. Are you defending her after what she did now? Okay, go ahead. You take care of the monster. Who killed your aunt Kayla and Kate. Don’t you forget your grandmother might be next.

Thank you. Thank you. You’re saving my life and I didn’t do it for you. I did it for Steve.

So how’s your dad? Uh, I haven’t actually seen him yet. Uh, he wasn’t home when Joey and I got there, so I thought I’d come by and see Roman and pay my respects. Uh, do you know if he’s around? Yeah. Johnny Damara was just here a little while ago to check up on him. It’s like the saddest trip to Salem ever.

From here. I’m going to baby to see my mom. You want me to come with you? I could. Uh, wait outside until you’re done. No, no. That’s very sweet of you. I can handle it. You sure? Yeah. They might not even let me in. Uh, they said that it would depend on the state that she’s in when I get there. Oh, man. Yeah. She probably hasn’t had a single visitor since she was admitted, which I totally understand.

I mean, she’s done some terrible things. I I can’t just abandon her. I know what you mean. People will definitely judge me for standing by my brother’s side after what he did, but I can’t desert him. You know, pretty much all he has left. Is there anything I can do? Thanks. But uh, this is Lee’s mess and I’m pretty sure if there was any way you could clean it up, you would.

Don’t worry, Ralph, I’m on a burner phone. No one’s gonna trace this call to your new location. Well, I’m sorry, you were starting to like Jakarta, but you needed to be moved. Fair warning, Stefan Damara suspects. I know where you are. I’m doing everything that I can to convince him otherwise, but you need to do your part two.

Anyone shows up and starts asking questions. You’ve never heard of me.

Are you visiting Chloe? No, I was in Lee’s room trying to see if I could find out where Rolf disappeared. . So you’re still on board with getting the brainwashing reversed. I am. Although your husband was no help. So I don’t know if it’s gonna happen. Well, my soon to be ex-husband and it will because we will find a way.

We make a great team. Remember actually, Gabby, I don’t right. I’m, I’m sorry. Four choice of words. What I meant was, Gabby, I think I need to reiterate something because it doesn’t seem to be sinking in. I love Chloe. She’s the woman I want to be with. Whether or not we find Rolf, it’s not gonna change. We’ll see, and actually I was doing something overtime myself trying to find Wolf, and I hit a big old wall at the hospital earlier.

The hospital, you know, Brady banned me from seeing Marlena. Can you believe that? I mean, I only, I was only trying to ask her if she would deprogram you, and I know she’ll say yes, and then we could be together again. What the hell is wrong with you? Excuse me. The woman is dying. And you want her to reprogram my brain so we can reconcile How could you be so heartless?

Yeah. That, that, that, that is what I was gonna ask you. But I, I’m, I’m not gonna push, you’ve asked for space, I’m gonna give you space. Just felt like in that one little moment there, I, uh, sounded like you cared. I do care, but thanks to Kristen, I thought that it was over between us. I know you did Chloe, but I was being blackmailed.

I told, I told you that. I mean, don’t you understand? The last thing in the world I wanted to do was break up with you.

I know that this has been really hard for you too, but. I spent a really long time being in the dark about this, and I was struggling to figure out how the man that claims that he loves me and that I love with all my heart would just abandoned me. And then Stephan came along and he gave, he gave me a chance to just let it all go and try to move on.

And I was starting to feel normal for just a little bit, and then Gabby dropped her bombshell. That’s Stephan was brainwashed. Yeah. So I don’t know. It’s just been, it’s been one thing after the other, and I’m just really confused right now. I don’t know what I’m supposed to think. I don’t know what I’m supposed to feel.

Sure. Okay.

I’m so glad you’re here. Thank you.

Where’s Tripp? Um, he, uh, he had to run out Steph too. They’ll be back in a bit. Stephanie said you left early. She thought you, uh, needed some time. Well, yeah. Well, I wasn’t alone. I went over to the Damaris, went to see Kristen. Jack, what’d you do? I almost killed her.

Your uncle just tried to murder me. Didn’t you see his hands around my You’re fine now. Throat. You’re fine now. What? So you okay with what he did? I’ll tell you what I’m not okay with. How about that? I’m not okay with Steve going to prison. You wanna know why? Because he is the only parent as kids have left.

Thanks to you. Also thanks to you. My grandpa Roman is shattered. My grandma Marlena is in the hospital clinging to life. So given all the damage you’ve done to my family, I really don’t give a damn if someone damages you. Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marlena or the other women. I swear to you.

Look, I will admit I hit the orchid knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum.

But I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead. Yeah, maybe not. That’s what happened.

Sorry. I’m sorry, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I shouldn’t, shouldn’t have done that. No, I don’t, don’t apologize. It wasn’t wrong, but it wasn’t right either. I, I don’t know. I’m not making any sense. None of this makes sense. I’m, I’m sorry, I just, I. I, I can’t Brady it just

ej it’s me. You don’t recognize this number because I’m on a burner fund. Stephan’s on the war path that. He thinks you’re going to fire me because of what I did to him, but we both know that’s not going to happen. Right? Unless, of course you want him to find out about your betrayal, how you kept quiet about his brainwashing so you could take over damara.

That’s what I thought. Why are you so angry, Whitney? Because Whitney did is disgust. Oh, I see. It’s the programming. That’s why you’re reacting this way. Or should I say overreacting? I am reacting this way because you impose on a critically ill woman for your own stupid and selfish reason. Stupid and selfish.

Newsflash. This brainwashing is a very serious life-changing issue that isn’t just gonna undo itself. Okay? You need help. Ro is Mia. We may never find him. That leaves marlina. She’s dying, which is why I wanted to move quickly. Oh my God. Damn it Stephan. Don’t you get it? She’s your only. I did this for you.

Do not lie to me and do not lie to yourself. As always, the only person you were thinking about is Gabby Hernandez. You did this for you.

If you said this is what you wanted for you to act like an entitled petulant child the hell I did, how, how do you think this is gonna happen? How do you think we’re gonna access your real feelings? Real feelings? You mean my feelings for you? Right. Because let’s be honest, that’s all you care about. I care about us, Seth, you were my husband.

The love that we shared was more beautiful, more powerful than anything I’ve ever known. God, I thought that we were gonna spend the rest of our lives together, and then our future was ripped apart because a bullet landed in your chest. But now we have a second chance. We have a miracle. We just have to get in touch with how you really feel.

Nothing, nothing should get in the way of making that happen. How could you be so damn selfish? Huh. And cruel. You know, I’m starting to believe that Lee did me a favor when he brainwashed me because he got me away from a bitch like you. Leave her the hell alone.

Hey, how is she famous? Um, there’s no change. Damn. Uh, is, uh, is Grandpa John? Okay. Yeah, I, I, I made him go home to get some sleep, but then, uh, he, he just came back a couple minutes ago. Have you gotten any rest, ? Uh, uh, there was a, uh, a bit of a situation at my place. Situation. What? What do you mean? When I walked in, my uncle Steve had his hands.

Around Kristen’s throat. I, I think he was trying to kill her. Huh? Can’t say I blame him. I sure don’t. Yeah. Kristen is wrong. So many people. I should get one of those number to Spencer, so people just take a number, line up outside the door and get a piece of her.

Harold, I guess it’s his day off. Perfect.

You almost killed Kristen. Don’t worry, son. It’s just an. What do you mean? Well, right before I put my hands around her throat, I made a whole lot of noise hoping that somebody would come in and break it up before things went too far. Well and behold, Johnny Damara walks in when he was taking care of Kristen.

I planted a bug and Johnny kicked me out. Then everything they said after that went to this device. You recorded them? I did. I had to release Kristen due to lack of evidence, but I’m gonna give Ray everything he needs to make sure that witch goes down for murder. Listen to this.

Look, I didn’t want to hurt anyone. I didn’t wanna hurt Marlena or the other women. I swear to.

Look, I will admit I hate the orchid knowing that these women would need more doses of the serum, but I wasn’t gonna withhold it if they got sick. I swear to you, I never wanted those women dead. Yeah, maybe not be done. That’s what happened.

He’s that confession. Damn straight is
