Update written by Joseph

EJ finds Stefan in the living room of the DiMera Mansion and asks him if everything’s alright. Stefan says he’s fine and asks why. EJ reminds him that it was supposed to be his first day back at the office as co-CEO. Stefan responds that he’s actually been having second thoughts about that which EJ questions. Stefan declares that he doesn’t think he should be in the job or that EJ should either.

Gabi goes to the police station. Jada tells her that Rafe is busy but Gabi demands entry in to the interrogation room now.

Rafe has Dr. Rolf in the interrogation room. Dr. Rolf complains that he has important work to do. Rafe tells him that he can get him out of here as soon as he flips on his partners in crime.

Li sits in the town square, on the phone calling someone an idiot for not keeping Dr. Rolf out of Salem. Li questions why he would calm down when he’s about to lose everything.

Brady enters the Brady Pub and finds Eric drinking a beer in the middle of the afternoon which he questions. Eric asks if Brady cares to join him. Brady declines, reminding him that he’s sober which Eric says he can respect. Brady thought Eric was sober too. Eric turns away but Brady stops him and says he’s just concerned, bringing up that he did just take a gun out of his hands. Eric argues that he was trying to get Kristen to tell them where the orchid was. Brady says he understands and he’s not judging. Brady talks about it being a horrific time for all of them and says they could all use support. Eric questions if he’s trying to get him to go to a meeting. Eric insists that he’s fine. Brady remarks on him solo day drinking. Eric argues that he just lost his mom and asks if he can blame him for having a beer to try to take the edge off. Brady talks about missing Marlena so much and she was always so good at helping them through the hard stuff. Eric questions how to go on without her. Brady says they lean on each other and that’s the only way. Eric hugs Brady.

EJ questions Stefan not being sure they should be co-CEOs when just yesterday, he was toasting their future. Stefan responds that he’s been doing a lot of thinking about how badly they treated Gabi. EJ asks if Stefan is feeling okay because it sounded like he expressed sympathy for Gabi. Stefan points out that they teamed up to oust Gabi from a job that she was doing very successfully, so he feels they made a mistake. EJ questions if Stefan wants to restore Gabi as CEO of DiMera Enterprises. Stefan calls Gabi a strong leader, smart, creative, and incredibly driven. EJ questions what the hell is wrong with him since he thought Stefan hated Gabi with every fiber of his being. Stefan says not anymore.

Jada tells Gabi that Rafe asked not to be interrupted. Gabi argues that she needs to speak to Dr. Rolf immediately. Jada brings up Gabi forcing Dr. Rolf to perform a medical procedure against his will. Gabi argues about Stefan being brainwashed and says it’s an emergency as Dr. Rolf needs to deprogram Stefan immediately.

Rafe tells Dr. Rolf that he’s not even sure where to begin with him since there is so damn much. Rafe brings up Dr. Rolf hiding Stefan DiMera from the world for four years and then brainwashing him, meanwhile Orpheus somehow managed to get his hands on a toxin that killed Kate, Kayla, and Marlena. Rafe brings up that Orpheus got that from a lab. Dr. Rolf argues that he did everything in his power to save the women. Rafe argues that he created the pathogen. Dr. Rolf says he didn’t infect anyone and worked to create an antidote. Rafe calls him a coward, not a hero. Rafe points out that Dr. Rolf gave Kristen the orchid right before they busted in to his lab. Dr. Rolf claims he had nothing to hide. Rafe questions if he fled overseas because he’s innocent. Rafe warns Dr. Rolf to start talking because this is going to be his last chance to avoid life in prison. Dr. Rolf asks who he expects him to implicate. Rafe says all of his accomplices, Kristen, and Li Shin. Rafe suggests starting with Li.

Li finishes his phone call after complaining that if Dr. Rolf flips, he’ll never get his job or his wife back and he could face life in prison. Sloan walks by and comments that it sounds like he needs a lawyer. Li responds that he already has one, but Sloan points out that she’s the best one.

Dr. Rolf comments on this being personal to Rafe. Rafe confirms that it is and brings up Li almost pulling the plug on Stefan. Rafe notes that if Kristen hadn’t showed up when she did, Stefan would be dead. Dr. Rolf remarks that he already was dead. Rafe argues that Dr. Rolf took Stefan’s dead brother’s heart and put it in his chest and then after stabilizing him, he brainwashed him because that’s what Kristen and Li wanted. Dr. Rolf claims not to know what he’s talking about. Rafe argues that he knows damn well what he’s talking about because he admitted everything to Gabi and then shot her full of something to make her forget. Rafe adds that unfortunately for him, Gabi’s memories came back to her at the wedding. Dr. Rolf questions what he needs him for if he knows all of this already. Rafe responds that Gabi’s word is hearsay and won’t hold up in court, so he needs Dr. Rolf to corroborate her story. Dr. Rolf responds that he cannot do that because he knows nothing about any of this. Rafe asks if he wants to go back to prison and guarantees there will not be any pardons this time. Dr. Rolf asks if Rafe is offering him a deal. Rafe says that will be up to the district attorney but he can guarantee that to get Melinda Trask on his side, he will need to give up Li Shin and all of his accomplices.

Sloan introduces herself to Li. Li notes her reputation preceding her. Sloan says she’s read all the stories about him in the tabloids. Li argues that the police have no evidence against him. Sloan gathers from his phone call that it could all change very quickly. Sloan advises Li to hire her. Li questions why she would want to represent someone who is completely screwed. Sloan says it’s money, so if Li digs deep in to the pockets, she will make all those charges go away. Li comments on if she handles divorces. Sloan questions him giving up already after just getting married. Li responds that he has no choice. Sloan asks what kind of attitude that is. Li calls it realistic as he doesn’t see any way of turning this around. Sloan suggests he think outside the box. Li says that’s how he got in to this mess in the first place. Sloan declares that now she’s going to get him out of it.

Gabi explains to Jada that Dr. Rolf only did half the job, so she needs him to finish deprogramming Stefan or he could get stuck this way forever. Jada suggests he can wait a week or two and all will be fine. Gabi argues that she can’t take that risk as everything is on the line. Gabi calls Stefan the love of her life and she needs him all the way back while he needs her to get him there.

Stefan explains to EJ that Gabi had knocked him over the head and dragged him in to the basement so that Dr. Rolf could deprogram him. EJ says he wondered where he was and figured he was hiding from Gabi. EJ tells Stefan that he’s sorry. Stefan understands he was oblivious. EJ confirms that he was and mentions that he and Nicole were up here drinking the cocktails that Stefan had poured to celebrate their alliance. Stefan then remembers drugging EJ’s drink which Nicole ended up drinking. Stefan remarks that he’s glad someone could enjoy them. EJ talks about how Nicole can usually handle her liquor but these drinks seemed to really hit her hard. Nicole then walks in and says the drinks still are hitting her hard but she has no idea why…

Eric asks Brady how Rachel is. Brady responds that she’s mad, confused, and angry at Chloe because she blames Chloe for Kristen having to go away. Brady says he’s tried persuading her otherwise to no avail. Brady asks about the women in Eric’s life. Eric responds that he and Jada are doing a great job of avoiding each other while he and Nicole are working on it. Brady asks if that’s what this is all about because he knows he still has feelings for Nicole and probably always will.

EJ checks on Nicole and comments that it really was some hangover. Nicole says she can’t seem to shake the headaches and nausea. Nicole argues that it doesn’t make sense since she only had a mimosa and champagne. Stefan says he’s sorry she’s feeling this way. Stefan decides he will have cook make her tea and toast. EJ thanks him and says they will finish their conversation as Stefan exits the room. Nicole sits with EJ and says she didn’t mean to interrupt. EJ tells her not to worry about it. Nicole tells EJ that she still feels so embarrassed about throwing herself at him yesterday. EJ repeats there’s no reason to be. Nicole knows they already talked but she understands if he wants to put the brakes on. EJ says not at all and he looks forward to taking her on the proper dinner that he promised her. EJ says tonight, she’s not feeling well and he has a fire to put out with Stefan. Nicole jokes about being familiar with fires like a dumpster fire as EJ hugs her.

Eric questions Brady saying he still has feelings for Nicole and calls that ridiculous since they are divorced. Brady brings up that it’s been 25 years and every time they split up, they find a way back together. Eric says not this time. Eric tells Brady that he and Nicole are over and moving on. Brady bets Roman doesn’t believe him either. Eric says no one believes him except himself and the woman he’s now seeing which he can live with. Brady questions if he’s talking about Sloan and if that’s a friends with benefits situation. Eric calls that exactly what he wants right now. Brady asks if he wants something shallow and meaningless without feelings like the ones he has for Nicole. Eric tells him to stop. Brady tells Eric to just admit that he’s fooling around with Sloan just to prove that he’s not still pining away for the love of his life.

Li admires Sloan’s confidence but says it all seems a little too good to be true as she can’t possibly deliver on her promises. Sloan tells him to try her. Li questions how she’s going to persuade Gabi to stay married to him. Sloan points out that Gabi hasn’t served him with divorce papers so she can’t be that eager to end their marriage and she thinks Gabi must be having second thoughts. Li explains to her about how Gabi pretended she wanted to get back together to get her hands on his burner phone to reach out to Dr. Rolf. Sloan suggests they deal with Dr. Rolf first and then they fight the divorce. Li argues that he can’t force Gabi to stay married to him. Sloan says he can and he just needs the right attorney.

Rafe tells Dr. Rolf to write down everything he can remember with the more details, the better. Rafe adds that if he gives him enough to put Li Shin away, then he might just earn a get out of jail free card. Gabi then walks in and tells Rafe that he has to let Dr. Rolf go.

Eric tells Brady that he has nothing to prove to anyone and that he’s moved on. Brady tells Eric to be honest with himself. Anna enters the Pub and tells Eric that she’s so sorry about his mother as she hugs him. Anna calls Marlena a remarkable woman and one of her dearest friends, so she can’t believe she’s gone. Anna brings up that Carrie is heartbroken and she feels for Roman losing his wife, his ex-wife, and his sister, so she came to send her condolences. Eric tells her that Roman isn’t here so Anna says she will come back later. Anna tells Eric and Brady to just ask if they need anything. Anna acknowledges that Brady lost his stepmother while the whole mess with Stefan and Chloe just seems to get crazier. Brady asks what she means. Anna realizes he didn’t hear about last night so Brady asks what happened. Anna explains that Chloe came by the DiMera Mansion to tell Stefan that they shouldn’t see each other anymore but then she got a call from Vivian, informing them that Gabi had Stefan held captive in the secret room in the basement which Brady questions. Anna adds that she and Chloe ran down there and found that Vivian was telling the truth as Gabi had Stefan tied up and rigged to a machine that Dr. Rolf was using to deprogram him. Eric questions Dr. Rolf being there. Anna says Gabi apparently tracked him down. Anna reveals that Stefan’s feelings for Gabi have been successfully rekindled. Brady asks if that means Stefan and Chloe are over. Anna says not exactly.

EJ fills Nicole in on Stefan being in love with Gabi again. Nicole says that certainly complicates things. Stefan returns and asks if they are talking about him. EJ says he was just filling Nicole in on last night’s events. Nicole still can’t believe she slept through that. EJ understands she was will. Nicole asks how Stefan is since what Dr. Rolf put him through is insane. Stefan admits he got nervous but he’s happy with the end result. Nicole brings up Brady and Chloe being her dear friends, so she’s glad that Stefan decided to let Chloe go. Stefan questions who told her that. Nicole points out that EJ told her that he’s in love with Gabi again. Stefan says that might be true, but there is an additional piece and complication which Nicole and EJ question. Stefan then reveals that he is also still in love with Chloe.

Rafe questions what Gabi is doing when he’s in the middle of an interrogation. Jada says she tried to stop her. Gabi says she can explain. Rafe tells Gabi that she needs to leave but Gabi refuses to leave without Dr. Rolf because he needs to finish fixing Stefan. Rafe says not until he agrees to testify and gives him a full statement. Dr. Rolf reminds Gabi that he cannot finish the process because his equipment was destroyed. Gabi argues that he needs to get new equipment and she doesn’t care how much it costs or what it takes because he needs to get Chloe Lane out of her husband’s head. Gabi then orders Dr. Rolf to start writing his statement.

Brady questions Anna about Dr. Rolf not being able to finish the process. Anna explains that his machine went out and smoke was coming out of it while Gabi yelled at him to do something and then the cops showed up and arrested Dr. Rolf. Brady asks if Chloe is okay. Anna says she’s not sure as Chloe got upset and ran out. Anna can’t believe Chloe didn’t tell him about this. Brady says he can’t either. Anna suggests Chloe didn’t tell him because tomorrow is Marlena’s funeral, but she does think she would appreciate some support. Brady pulls out his phone and calls Chloe but it goes straight to voicemail. Eric questions why he didn’t leave a message. Brady decides he’s going to the Salem Inn to talk to her in person. Eric wishes Brady luck as he then exits. Anna then notices Kate’s urn on the counter. Eric says Roman likes having her around as it gives him comfort. Anna relates to that but points out that the urn she used to carry around ended up not being Tony’s ashes so she jokes that Roman should have that checked out. Eric says he’ll let Roman know that she stopped by and that it was good to see her as he then exits the Pub. Anna comments on all the grief that they have to deal with while she’s just sitting there. Anna goes to the br and comments to Kate’s urn that she feels so useless. Anna then declares that there is definitely something she can do as she exits the Pub.

EJ questions Stefan being in love with two women and calls that quite a complicated situation. Nicole picks up a piece of toast but then decides she needs some air and she’ll be back. Nicole then exits. EJ hopes she will be okay. Stefan assures that she’ll be fine. EJ points out that Stefan didn’t mention earlier that Dr. Rolf couldn’t erase his feelings for Chloe. Stefan explains that his equipment malfunctioned before he could finish the procedure. EJ says if Stefan is still in love with Chloe, he should understand why reinstating Gabi is a terrible idea but Stefan says he doesn’t. EJ points out that putting Gabi in charge of DiMera would burn a few bridges with Chloe. Stefan questions keeping things as they are with them in charge. EJ says they worked so hard, so telling the board they made a huge mistake could hurt the stock prices and they can’t take that risk, so they need to stay the course. Stefan supposes he’s right.

Rafe questions what Dr. Rolf is waiting for. Dr. Rolf claims he has writer’s block and that Gabi isn’t helping. Rafe asks Gabi to give them a minute. Gabi tries to argue but Jada escorts her back out of the room. Gabi complains to Jada that Dr. Rolf hates her. Jada assures that Rafe will wrap things up soon and encourages Gabi to go home, promising to call as soon as they finish. Gabi agrees to go. Jada suggests she try to get some rest but Gabi says there’s no chance of that until she gets her man back. Gabi then exits the station.

Li argues that even if Sloan can keep Gabi from divorcing him, it won’t be much of a marriage if she hates him and he’s in prison. Sloan reminds him that she can make the criminal charges go away. Li asks how. Sloan tells him not to worry as she has a plan which she will put in motion when she’s hired. Li tells her that she’s hired and asks now what. Sloan tells him to sit back, relax, and leave the details to her.

Dr. Rolf writes down Li and Kristen’s names. Rafe encourages him to keep going. Dr. Rolf asks if this is not enough. Rafe says no and warns that if he wants to avoid prison, he will give him everyone he’s got.

EJ thought Stefan was looking forward to them working together. Stefan says he is, but he still feels terrible about what they did to Gabi. EJ calls Gabi an outsider and he feels very strongly that DiMera Enterprises should be run by DiMeras. Stefan says that’s as long as one of them is him. EJ brings up apologizing for not speaking up sooner about what was done to him, but reminds Stefan that being co-CEO is what he wanted and was excited about. Stefan wishes Gabi had him deprogrammed months ago. EJ apologizes again for his role in preventing that and says he’s very grateful that Stefan has forgiven him. EJ hopes that Stefan was sincere in saying he had forgiven him. Stefan claims that all is forgiven or he wouldn’t be going in to business with him.

Gabi walks through the town square and comes across Li. Gabi informs Li that Dr. Rolf is back in Salem and Stefan is madly in love with her again. Li questions why she isn’t with him now then. Gabi admits they had a minor complication but says it’s nothing that can’t be fixed and claims that she’s on cloud nine now because she will soon have her real husband back.

Brady goes to Chloe’s room at the Salem Inn and knocks on the door, asking if she is inside. Anna appears behind him and startles him as she suggests he knock again. Brady asks what she’s doing here. Anna responds that she thought he could use a mediator, a woman well versed in the trials and tribulations of romance, to keep his conversation with Chloe on the right track. Brady thanks her but doesn’t think she’s home. Anna calls that perfect since when Chloe comes back, she’ll be in for the most wonderful surprise. Brady asks what she means. Anna tells him to wait there and she’ll be right back.

Nicole sits outside in the park and has a drink of water, saying that’s much better. Nicole decides it’s time to go but then feels bad again and says maybe it wasn’t a good idea to stand up. Nicole starts to fall down as Eric rushes up and catches her.

Anna returns to Brady with a key card and explains that she convinced and paid off the front desk. Anna tells Brady to just go on inside and then when Chloe comes back home and finds the love of her life waiting for her, she’ll be overjoyed. Brady isn’t sure that Chloe would be too happy about the breaking and entering when he told her that he would give her space. Anna insists that Chloe doesn’t want space, she wants him, and urges him to open the door. Brady then uses the key card and enters Chloe’s room. Anna follows him inside. Brady thanks her for caring but he doesn’t think she needs to be there. Anna responds that she doesn’t have anywhere better to be. Brady appreciates her encouragement but says he and Chloe don’t need a mediator. Anna suggests a videographer and offers to record their happy reunion. Brady then realizes that none of Chloe’s things are in the room, everything is cleaned out, and he doesn’t see her suitcase. They wonder where Chloe has gone.

Li laughs at Stefan’s feelings for Gabi being back but he’s still not sure she’s the one he wants. Gabi tells him to stop gloating and calls it a minor setback. Gabi doesn’t even know why she told him. Li understands she was venting. Gabi blames Li for ruining her life. Gabi assures that Dr. Rolf will finish his procedure and then Stefan will want only her. Li responds that he wouldn’t be so sure about that. Gabi argues that he’s just spiteful, cynical, and jealous as hell. Gabi adds that she’ll never want Li again and that Dr. Rolf is ratting him out to the cops right now so he should be on his way to prison soon. Li responds that he wouldn’t be so sure about that either.

Dr. Rolf finishes writing his statement, so Rafe tells him to sign it. Sloan then interrupts and tells Dr. Rolf not to sign that as she announces she is new attorney which excites Dr. Rolf.

Eric asks Nicole what is going on. Nicole says it’s nothing and that she and EJ just did a little too much celebrating last night. Eric questions her still being hungover at 5 PM. Nicole says it was quite a night and insists she’s fine. Eric asks if she’s okay to walk home. Nicole responds that she’s not going to get in a car with him because she smells beer on his breath. Eric offers to call her a cab. Nicole says she has it but realizes she doesn’t have her phone. Nicole then mocks Sloan by remarking to Eric that maybe she left her phone in EJ’s bed. Eric says he’s happy to help her but Nicole says she can take care of herself and storms off.

EJ thanks Stefan for being willing to put his deception behind them and for being reasonable and understanding. Stefan jokes that it’s not exactly the DiMera way. EJ suggests it could be the new way. Stefan then suggests they finish the tea that was brought for Nicole which EJ agrees to. Stefan drugs one of the cups behind EJ’s back and then gives it to him as they then drink the tea.
