Nick: Dad actually warned you about McCall and what would happen if you didn’t acquire it?

Victoria: It wasn’t so much a warning as an “I told you so.” Just tell me, please, that you turned down his offer.

Nick: Vic, come on. There’s no way I’m bailing on you to go and babysit Adam. I’m pretty sure mom’s not going anywhere either.

Victoria: Can you imagine our mother and Adam running a company together? That’ll be the day. So, what else did dad have to share? Any other suggestions that I should know about?


Victoria: You know, it makes no difference what you and Sally think. Once that baby arrives, there’s no way in hell that you’re gonna be able to keep it away from dad. Not to mention, this is not your fight. Sally and Adam are the parents, so really, it’s up to them.

Nick: Thank you for the reminder.

Victoria: It’s the truth, Nick. Hey, um, I’m gonna be going to Los Angeles for a couple of days, and I need you to take the reins. I hope that’s not too much to ask.

Nick: Sure. Mom going with you?

Victoria: No, she’ll be here.

Nick: Well, she’s the co-ceo. Shouldn’t she be in charge?

Victoria: Look, we both know how much she loves seeing you in more of a leadership role. So the job is yours for a couple of days. Deal with it.

[Nick chuckling]

Nick: Okay. Um… you going alone?

Victoria: No. Did you have a chance to look over those P&L reports that I sent you?

Nick: Hold up. If mom’s not going out of town, who are you going with? Don’t tell me–

Victoria: I know what I’m doing, Nick. Leave it alone.

Tucker: Hello.

Ashley: Hello.

Tucker: Surprised?

Ashley: Yes.

[Tucker chuckling]

Tucker: You did ask me to move in with you. Did you not?

Ashley: I vaguely remember having that conversation with you. I just didn’t know it was gonna be tonight.

Tucker: Right. I thought I’d roll the dice. That is if your offer was serious, and you meant it.

Ashley: Of course, I meant it. You belong here, as long as you behave.

Tucker: Oh. Is that the real reason why you invited me here?

Ashley: Maybe.

Tucker: You want me to be here?


Tucker: I know. But I’m glad that we both agreed that this is at least worth exploring. And uh, anyway, it was a very romantic gesture to offer to share your home with me and I’m– I’m rather looking forward to seeing the look on jack’s face when he–

Ashley: Yeah.

Tucker: When he sees me coming down the stairs for breakfast.

Ashley: I don’t want to talk about jack right now.

Tucker: Sure.

Ashley: Let’s not do it. Don’t you want to see your new pad, your new home?

Tucker: Yes, please show me. It’s very nice.

Ashley: Come on. Come on, bring your stuff. These are the stairs.

Tucker: Wow, you can go up?

Ashley: Yes.

Tucker: What about down?

Ashley: Uh-huh

Adam: Dr. Nate Hastings.

Nate: Adam. You know I don’t practice medicine anymore.

Adam: Ah. You’re right. You quit being a doctor to do something really important. Run a media company.

Nate: Is there something I can help you with?

Adam: So, things are going well over there at Newman Media?

Nate: Couldn’t be better.

Adam: That’s good. From my experience, you have everything you need to be successful at that company.

Nate: And what exactly would that be?

Adam: Well, you have two things going for you. One, you’re not a Newman, and two, you’re not intimately intertwined with one. So, you’re in good shape.


Victor: I came here to tell you both some good news.

Nikki: Oh?

Victoria: I don’t really like the way he’s smiling right now.

Victor: You’re looking at the new owner of McCall Unlimited.

Victoria: Oh. Is that all? You scared me for a minute, I thought it was something important.

Nikki: Now, Victoria.

Victoria: He knows what I mean. Buying McCall is like buying a– a horse or, um, a car or like a trendy coffee machine. It’s fun for a minute, but it doesn’t really change the world.

Victor: And now it begins. The competition, I mean.

Nikki: Yes, of course.

Victoria: You know, if you’re still planning on putting Adam in charge, that’s– that’s a relief. Because he’s certainly doomed to fail. Thankfully, it’s not gonna be on my watch. So, as far as I’m concerned, it’s a win-win situation.

Update written by Joseph

Steve brings Kayla some fruit and yogurt at the Greek hospital but she says she’s not hungry. Steve points out that she barely slept last night. Kayla says she’s just so worried about Bo. Steve encourages that if anybody can get through this it’s Bo Brady. Roman then arrives. Kayla hugs him and says she’s so glad he’s here. Kayla asks if he can believe this. Roman admits he’s still in shock and asks how the hell Bo ended up right back at death’s door.

Shawn walks outside and thinks back to shooting Bo. Ciara arrives and hugs him, saying she came as soon as she heard. Ciara can’t believe it and asks if their dad is really alive. Shawn says no thanks to him.

Harris sits in his room until Andrew shows up at his door. Harris guesses Andrew is here to talk about his uncle Bo. Andrew says he was on the phone half the night with his mother who is a wreck. Harris apologizes. Andrew says what happened to Bo wasn’t his fault but Harris is not so sure about that.

Hope sits at Bo’s side in his hospital room and has a dream about Bo waking up and them reuniting. Hope then snaps out of it and Bo remains unconscious in his hospital bed.

Chad joins Stephanie in their hotel room. Stephanie asks if he spoke to the kids. Chad says he was about to call when he remembered that it’s the middle of the night in Salem. Chad asks what’s on her mind. Stephanie says she’s just thinking about how lucky she is to be here in Chad’s arms, having Kayla back and Steve is safe. Stephanie prays that God has one more miracle left for her uncle Bo.

Roman doesn’t know what to feel since Bo has been gone for so many years but now he’s back alive. Steve talks about walking in to the police station and seeing Bo’s face. Roman asks if Bo will pull out of this. Kayla says they don’t know as the bullet did a lot of damage, but Hope is in with him now. Roman comments on what Hope must be going through. Kayla decides she will go check on her and invites Roman to come but Roman says not yet as he still needs to get his bearings. Steve says he will keep Roman company as Kayla exits. Roman asks Steve how Hope is holding up. Steve says it’s about like he’d expect, but Shawn is the one he’s worried about. Steve wonders how Shawn will ever get over shooting his own father.

Ciara tells Shawn that Steve told her what happened and understands that he thought Bo was going to shoot Hope. Shawn argues that he wasn’t though and Hope had gotten through to him so that he was Dad again. Ciara points out that Shawn didn’t know. Shawn argues that he should have realized that Hope is the one person who could always reach Bo no matter what because that’s how powerful their love is, but instead he went in guns blazing. Ciara argues that he can’t blame himself and that Hope doesn’t and Bo won’t either. Ciara says they just got Bo back and can’t lose him again. Ciara suggests they go see him but Shawn tells her to go ahead. Ciara questions Shawn not seeing Bo. Shawn complains that he can’t face him or Hope after what he did. Ciara tells him to take all the time he needs and assures that nobody blames him as it’s not his fault. Ciara then heads in to the hospital.

Hope encourages Bo to come back to her and says this is their second chance. Kayla joins Hope in the room. Hope hugs her and is thankful she is okay. They tell each other they look beautiful and talk about having Bo back. Kayla checks his file but says it doesn’t say anything they don’t already know. Kayla adds that Bo has a tough fight ahead, but they know what a fighter he is. Hope mentions her dream that he woke up. Kayla says there are so many people praying for Bo to come back to them. Kayla declares that Bo has survived so many things, so they have to have faith that he will survive this too. Ciara arrives and says amen to that as she enters the room and hugs Hope. Ciara looks over and says it’s really him. Ciara sits at Bo’s side and talks to him. Ciara wonders if Bo can hear her. Hope encourages that he knows she’s there. Ciara cries to Bo about how much she’s missed him. Ciara adds that she cannot wait for Bo to meet his grandson. Kayla asks if Ciara saw Shawn on her way in. Ciara confirms that he did and she tried to get him to come with her but he wasn’t ready as he’s blaming himself for what happened. Kayla says she will go talk to him but Shawn then arrives and says she doesn’t have to do that.

Steve knows Roman doesn’t want to go in to see Bo because he’s relieved and happy that he’s alive but also devastated by what he likely did to Kate. Steve argues that they know that wasn’t Bo since he was under Megan’s control. Roman says he wants nothing more than for Bo to come out of this for Hope, their kids, and their whole family. Roman questions how he could ever look Bo in the eyes again and know that he took Kate away from him.

Kayla decides she will go update Steve and Roman in the waiting room, noting that they will be so excited to know Ciara is there. Kayla then exits the room. Shawn apologizes to Hope. Hope hugs him and understands he did what he was trained to do. Shawn doesn’t give a damn because he shot his father. Hope understands that Shawn thought she was in danger and Bo would have wanted him to protect her. Shawn reluctantly agrees and says he should be comforting her right now. Hope claims she’s fine but Ciara asks when she last slept or ate. Hope responds that she’s not hungry and is not leaving until Bo wakes up. Ciara points out that they don’t know how long that will be. Shawn adds that she’s not doing anyone any favors by running herself in to the ground. Hope jokes about ending up with such stubborn children. Hope guesses she could use a shower and a change of clothes. Ciara encourages Hope to take a nap and get some sleep. Hope tells them not to leave the room and to call her immediately if anything changes which they agree to do. Hope kisses Bo and says she will be right back. Hope hugs Ciara and reminds them not to leave until she gets back. Hope then exits the room. Shawn sits at Bo’s side and tells him that he loves him and they need him now more than ever as he pleads for Bo to come back to them.

Andrew questions Harris knowing Bo was alive and not saying anything. Harris admits it was not his finest hour. Harris thought Andrew came to arrest him. Andrew reveals he came to thank him for returning Thomas Banks and the missing prisms to the ISA. Harris asks if he’s still grateful after knowing what he did. Andrew admits the lie was pretty egregious but not exactly criminal. Harris is not sure the rest of his family feels that way. Andrew asks if he’s spoken to Hope. Harris says Hope has enough on her plate and he’s probably the last person she wants to talk to. Harris adds that he did get an earful from Andrew’s cousin Stephanie, who is not his biggest fan.

Stephanie complains to Chad that she could strangle Harris since if he came clean about Bo being alive sooner then Shawn would have never shot Bo. Chad points out that they don’t know that. Stephanie questions if he’s defending Harris. Chad acknowledges that it was a dick move, but adds that Harris did help them with Thomas Banks and practically saved his life. Stephanie accepts that Harris is not irredeemable but close. Stephanie doesn’t know what she would’ve done if she lost Chad. Chad says he’s still here. Stephanie acknowledges that Chad risked his life to help her find her parents. Chad jokes that Thomas Banks forgot his father was The Phoenix, so he’s risen from the ashes a few times. Chad and Stephanie then kiss until Stephanie stops and says she feels guilty because her family is at the hospital rallying around her uncle while she’s here in Chad’s arms. Chad reminds her that her parents said they would call if there’s a change. Chad reminds Stephanie that she’s been there for her brothers, her parents, and for him and his kids when he was at his lowest. Chad tells Stephanie that it’s time to let him be there for her. Stephanie says he talked her in to it as they continue kissing onto the bed.

Kayla informs Steve and Roman that she just got a text from Hope that she’s going back to the hotel to freshen up but she knows she won’t be long. Roman asks if anyone is in the room with Bo now. Kayla confirms that Ciara and Shawn are. Kayla then suggests Roman join them. Steve thinks it’s a good idea for Roman to go see his baby brother. Roman agrees and then exits. Kayla knows how hard this is for Roman. Steve says he’s having a hard time with what they think Bo did to Kate. Kayla points out that they have no way of knowing what really happened. Andrew arrives and greets them. Andrew asks how Bo is. Kayla says he’s in the trauma unit and hasn’t regained consciousness. Andrew mentions tracking down the surgeon who operated on Bo and reveals they found something very interesting in Bo’s brain. Kayla points out that wasn’t in his chart while Steve asks what they found. Andrew then shows them a vial with a microchip inside.

Ciara comments that Bo looks like he’s sleeping. Shawn asks if Ben and baby Bo came with her. Ciara says that Ben wanted to come but she didn’t want to leave baby Bo with a babysitter because she didn’t know how long she would be here. Ciara asks about Belle and Claire. Shawn says they are good. Shawn notes that Belle is checking in on Victor, Doug, and Julie while Claire offered to fly out but he told her to hold off until they knew more. Ciara mentions talking to Chelsea and she wanted to but reveals Chelsea is pregnant too. Ciara jokes that Bo has so many more grandkids coming. Shawn hopes he will be around to meet them. Ciara encourages that he will be. Ciara talks about how Bo will be the most involved grandparent on the planet for many years.

Hope walks outside and prays for God to not take Bo from her again. Hope then heads in to the hotel where she runs in to Harris. Hope asks if he’s leaving. Harris figured it would be best for everybody. Hope asks where he will go. Harris admits he’s not sure. Hope says she just came back to shower and change. Harris asks how Bo is. Hope responds that he’s in a coma and the doctors don’t know if he will ever wake up. Harris tells her that he’s so sorry. Hope questions why Harris didn’t tell her that Bo was alive the moment he found out. Harris admits it was because he’s selfish and he knew the moment that Hope found out, whatever they had would be over. Harris says that is the reason and he knows it’s no excuse but Bo warned him not to because it would put Hope and her family in danger. Hope argues that Harris of all people knows what it’s like to be under Megan’s control. Harris says that’s why he came clean. Hope argues that she trusted him and he should’ve come clean sooner. Harris wishes that he had. Hope decides she should go. Harris stops her and admits he screwed up. Harris says after all the time, he thought they had something real because he’s never had that and he just didn’t want to let go. Harris adds that he really did care about her. Hope admits that she cared about him too. Harris says he knows that Bo is the love of her life. Hope says goodbye to Harris and walks away.

Chad and Stephanie lay in bed together, wishing they could stay like this forever. Chad knows her family needs her. Stephanie says after the Hell that everyone’s been through lately, she prays for it not to get worse. Chad encourages her to be positive. Chad assures he’s there for her and will always be right by her side as they kiss.

Andrew tells Kayla and Steve that the chip being in Bo’s brain would explain how Megan was able to control him as the ISA has dozens of files on the DiMeras using this kind of technology to manipulate people. Steve informs Andrew that they did it to him and made him think he was Stefano. Kayla adds that Dr. Rolf did it to Hope too. Kayla wonders if there is a way to access the memory on the chip. Steve calls that good thinking so they could find out what Bo was up to while under Megan’s control. Andrew decides there’s only one way to find out and pulls out his laptop.

Ciara wakes up from having fallen asleep in the chair in Bo’s hospital room. Ciara tells Shawn that she’s sorry but she didn’t get any sleep on the plane. Shawn suggests she go join Hope at the hotel but Ciara refuses to leave. Roman then enters and agrees with Shawn, joking that big brothers are always right as he and Ciara hug. Roman turns and looks over Bo. Roman says he’s heard Shawn has been beating himself up. Shawn feels he has good reason but everyone’s been letting him off the hook. Shawn argues that he should’ve waited while Roman points out that if he did, Hope could be in the hospital instead. Roman adds that everyone he knows would have done the same thing. Roman hugs Shawn and assures this is not his fault. Roman calls Shawn a damn good man that he is proud of. Roman declares that Megan Hathaway took one of the best men he ever knew and made him do unspeakable things like pulling a gun on the love of his life, kidnapping his own sister, and taking Kate from him. Roman sits at Bo’s side and tells him that he has to come back to them. Roman says they will figure out the rest as family but he has to come back to them. Hope returns and hugs Roman, calling him a sight for sore eyes. Shawn points out that Hope wasn’t gone very long so he hopes she got some sleep. Hope assures that she’s good and asks for some time alone with Bo. Roman says he has to go check with Steve and Kayla anyway. Ciara decides she will call Ben and invites Shawn to come say hi to his nephew. Hope tells them that she loves them. Shawn tells Bo that he will see him soon as he then exits with Ciara and Roman. Hope tells Bo that it’s just them now together and alone, so they need to talk about Harris.

Harris goes to leave the hotel when Chad and Stephanie catch him at the door. Chad questions him leaving. Stephanie mentions that they are on their way to the hospital to see Bo. Harris mentions running in to Hope earlier and that she filled him in. Harris repeats that he’s sorry for not coming clean about Bo sooner. Harris tells Stephanie that he’s happy her parents are safe. Stephanie admits she’s not sure she will ever be able to forgive him for not telling them about Bo sooner, but acknowledges that he did save them from Thomas Banks. Chad says they owe him for that as he would’ve been dead for sure if Harris hadn’t shown up. Harris says he was happy to help and wishes them luck. Harris adds that he hopes Bo wakes up from the coma because he has a lot of people that love him and a lot to live for. Harris then exits the hotel.

Andrew shows Kayla and Steve how his laptop can decode the microchip. Steve hopes it will tell them what was going on in Bo’s head while under Megan’s control. Andrew says it’s possible but it’s also possible that Dr. Rolf engineered the chip to fry his laptop. Roman arrives and asks when Andrew got there. Andrew informs him that he just landed in Greece today. Roman asks what they are looking at. Kayla informs him that the surgeon found a microchip in Bo’s brain. Roman asks if that’s a good thing. Steve hopes it will give them some insight in to Bo’s psyche while Megan was pulling his strings. Roman points out that they could find out what Kate’s last moments were like. Kayla asks if he’s sure he wants those answers. Roman assures that he can handle it. Andrew says he could stop the scan since Megan’s already in prison but it’s up to Roman. Roman orders him to keep going because he needs to know what Bo did to Kate and what happened to her body, feeling he owes that to Kate and her family.

Ciara sits outside finishing a facetime call with Ben and baby Bo. Shawn joins her as Ciara talks about missing them so much. Shawn asks how Ben is doing. Ciara admits Ben is having a really hard time wrapping his head around the fact that Bo is still alive. Ciara recalls giving birth to Bo and having her dad’s spirit come down to Earth to visit her. Ciara adds that Ben saw it too which is how she knows she wasn’t imagining it but she doesn’t how that’s possible if Bo wasn’t really dead. Shawn says it sounds like Bo found a way to her when she needed him the most. Ciara says he always did. Shawn hopes there’s still some of that magic left for Bo to come back to them.

Hope sits at Bo’s side, talking about how Harris said that Bo told him not to tell her that he was alive but she knows that was Megan’s brainwashing talking because she has no doubt that the real Bo wants to be with her as much as she wants to be with him. Hope urges Bo to open his eyes so she can tell him how much she missed and loves him. Angela the nurse appears again and says she had a feeling that they needed a visit from her. Hope worries about Bo not waking up. Angela encourages that Hope and Bo have been through Hell and back to be together, so she can’t give up on him.

Chad and Stephanie find Ciara outside. Stephanie hugs Ciara and says she’s all grown up. Ciara talks about being a mother now. Ciara hugs Chad and says it’s nice to see him. Chad asks about Bo. Ciara says nothing has changed really but Hope is with him now. Stephanie asks if Shawn is there too. Ciara says that Shawn went to go call Claire with an update but notes that Steve, Kayla, and Roman are all up in the waiting room and they will be really happy to see her. Stephanie thanks Ciara and encourages her not to lose faith because if anyone deserves a miracle from above, it’s Bo.

Hope assures Angela that she would never give up but that it’s so hard to see Bo in this condition. Angela says anyone can see how much Bo means to Hope. Hope calls Bo her whole heart and her hero since she was 18. Angela encourages Hope to hold out for her hero and keep fighting for her man. Angela assures Hope that God will hear her and then she disappears. Hope kisses Bo and lays by his side, declaring she will hold out for her hero for as long as it takes. Hope cries that she loves and misses him.

Steve asks Andrew about the chip scanning and it then completes. Roman asks what they have. Andrew finds a video file. Steve questions the chip recording video. Andrew guesses it somehow downloaded Bo’s activity through his field of vision. Roman asks to search for a specific time and date to find Kate for him. Andrew does so and hits play. They watch the video of Bo holding his gun on Kate. The video then reveals that Bo shot straight up above in to the air and did not shoot Kate. Bo then told Kate to go before he changed his mind and Kate ran off. Kayla exclaims that Bo did not shoot Kate. Roman declares that this could mean that Kate is alive but wonders where the hell she is.

Kate is somewhere on a boat, cutting up fish.

Tucker: Hello.

Ashley: Hello.

Tucker: Surprised?

Ashley: Yes.

[ Tucker chuckling ]

Tucker: You did ask me to move in with you. Did you not?

Ashley: I vaguely remember having that conversation with you. I just didn’t know it was gonna be tonight.

Tucker: Right. I thought I’d roll the dice. That is if your offer was serious and you meant it.

Ashley: Of course, I meant it. You belong here, as long as you behave.

Tucker: Oh. Is that the real reason why you invited me here?

Ashley: Maybe.

Tucker: You want me to be here?

Michael: Hm. Thank you. So, how was your day?

Lauren: Fine. My day was fine.

Michael: That sounds interesting. The weather’s nice. Feels like summer might come early this year.

Lauren: That’s what we’re gonna talk about? The weather?

Michael: I was hoping we could try to renew some sense of normalcy, you know, get things back the way they were. That appears not to be possible, especially in this place. It’s way too much pain, it’s in the air.

Lauren: I think it’s the perfect place to talk about what’s going on. Because this is the last place we saw phyllis alive.

Michael: Do you want to talk about phyllis?

Lauren: Yes, I do want to talk about phyllis. I have been trying to contain myself and I can’t do it anymore. How do you justify defending the woman who murdered our best friend?

[ Jack sighing ]

Jack: Working late? I like to see it.

Billy: Hey, I, uh, sorry, I commandeered the big chair. I just wanted to stay on top of things in your absence. I know that you’re dealing with other things.

Jack: Please, please proceed. I like seeing you here. You are the co-C.E.O. Thank god somebody is here that can focus on the company, keep it running smoothly. I– I can’t give it my full attention these days.

Billy: Yeah. Well, I can, uh, you know, I can get you up to speed on a few things that could use your attention. You know what? I’ll send you an email in the morning. Nothing crazy. Everything’s good. You know, just the way it looks–

Jack: Yeah.

Billy: Sales figures, that kind of thing.

Jack: Yeah.

Billy: Jack, why are you here?

Jack: I needed a diversion, some sense of normalcy. I– I just came from seeing diane.

Billy: Really? I thought kyle said she didn’t want to see anyone.

Jack: Yeah, well, I chose to ignore her. I told her I refused to let this thing come between us, to tear us apart. What’s more, I told her that I wanted to marry her now more than ever and I wanted to do it right away.

Billy: And what did she say?

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: Mom?

Daniel: It’s just me. I came back to check on you.

Summer: Did you see her too? – The will states that mr. Marbles will receive

Additional sponsorship provided by…

Ashley: Mm. What was that for?

Tucker: It’s for you. For us. I mean, I’m happy you didn’t let me give up and run away.

Ashley: Oh, well, I can’t really take credit for that. I just gave you alternative moves that you could make.

Tucker: You cracked the door open just enough for me to believe that maybe we can make it work this time around.

Ashley: Maybe being the operative word. You know, there’s no guarantees.

Tucker: I know. But I’m glad that we both agreed that this is at least worth exploring. And uh, anyway, it was a very romantic gesture to offer to share your home with me and I’m– I’m rather looking forward to seeing the look on jack’s face when he–

Ashley: Yeah.

Tucker: When he sees me coming down the stairs for breakfast.

Ashley: I don’t want to talk about jack right now.

Tucker: Sure.

Ashley: Let’s not do it. Don’t you want to see your new pad, your new home?

Tucker: Yes, please show me. It’s very nice.

Ashley: Come on. Come on, bring your stuff. These are the stairs.

Tucker: Wow, you can go up?

Ashley: Yes.

Tucker: What about down?

Ashley: Uh-huh.

Michael: Oh, come on. You don’t really believe that. You don’t honestly think that I am defending a woman who cost phyllis her life?

Lauren: I do. Christine is sure that she is to blame and chance is damn good at his job. Do you remember when diane was cuffed and hauled out of here and she begged you to represent her and you refused, as you should? That was your gut telling you, you should not give that woman the benefit of the doubt.

Michael: You’re right. You’re right. How could I not? I was reeling. We all were. We had just found out that phyllis had been poisoned.

Lauren: And after jack pleaded with you personally, you still refused. What superseded your reluctance? Your enormous ego?

Michael: How could you even say that?

Lauren: Because I remember you telling me that victor and nikki were giving you a hard time for even thinking about defending diane. So what was this, the ultimate pushback to prove that you can make your own decisions?

Michael: You hold on now. That is a gross oversimplification. I would not just blithely sacrifice my job with victor because my fragile and enormous ego was bruised.

Lauren: Then tell me. Tell me what it was? Because it certainly seems that your desire to prove a point was more important than everything, including my feelings. You knew exactly how I would react with you defending diane and you went and you did it anyway.

Billy: So you asked diane to marry you, right then and there? And she didn’t give you an answer?

Jack: Nope. I’m not sure why. I thought that offering to marry her now would make her see that my faith in her is unshakeable. That I could make her see that I deeply believe she was coming home. That any day now, we could start to rebuild this new chapter in our lives that– that we dreamed about.

Billy: Yeah. Well, you know, jack, I’m– I’m sure she’s scared, you know, and overwhelmed. I’m not surprised that she put the brakes on. She’s trying to get through her life right now, hour by hour.

Jack: I know– I know all that. That’s why I’m doing everything I can to give her some sense of comfort.

Billy: Yeah, I know. I’m sure she appreciates that, but I can’t imagine she was prepared for you to show up and say, “let’s get hitched right now”, you know. As much as she loves you, and she does love you, that is pretty impulsive.

Jack: Yeah, I will admit to that.

Billy: Look, maybe she’s thinking that there’s more to this than you asking her to marry you.

Jack: Meaning what?

Billy: I think it’s pretty clear that you think things are spinning out of control right now and maybe this is your attempt to desperately find something that you can control.

Jack: Billy, the last thing I need right now is you analyzing me. My suggestion did not come out of the blue. We are engaged. I fully intend to spend the rest of my life with her. I was simply moving up the timetable.

Billy: Why don’t you just slow down a little bit, okay? This isn’t something you can outrun, jack.

Jack: What are you talking about? What am I trying to outrun?

Billy: Not that long ago, you were ready to spend the rest of your life with someone else. Someone that you loved deeply. You called her red, and now she’s gone and I don’t think you’ve even begun to mourn that loss yet.

Daniel: You are overwhelmed and emotional and I think I know what’s going on. I haven’t told anyone this, but I see mom too. I see her all the time. Someone walking by me on the street and– and my heart, it skips a beep.

Summer: This wasn’t like that, daniel. This was real.

Daniel: I know that it seems that way. I mean, those fleeting moments, they– they feel real to me too. But our mind, it plays tricks on us, especially in a stressful situation like this. And I think that’s why mom, she comes to me in my dreams and you know, when I’m alone, sometimes I find myself talking to her. I don’t know, it’s just my way of trying to hold on to her, I guess. Trying to still feel close and connected with her. I just keep thinking about the way she died and going over and over all the unanswered questions.

Summer: What if I had answers to those questions? Moderate to severe eczema

Jack: Once again, you have misconstrued things. My desire to marry diane is quite separate from my need to mourn phyllis.

Billy: With all due respect, I– I disagree, jack. It seems like to me, you’re avoiding your pain and your grief by simply focusing on your future with diane.

Jack: Believe me, I have grieved. I poured my heart out at that memorial service. I am not in denial.

Billy: I’m not saying you are, but what I am saying is that you’re not really allowing yourself to understand what’s going on inside of you. I mean, everything has been moving at warp speed since that gala. I’m sure you haven’t had a second to even take a breath.

Jack: God, that is the truth. That party was so chaotic and the chaos hasn’t stopped since.

Billy: No, it’s been a nonstop nightmare.

Jack: No sooner were we passed the trauma of phyllis’s memorial service, and diane was arrested.

Billy: And you’re gonna do what you do, you’re gonna make sure everyone else is okay. From diane and kyle to daniel and summer, without taking a second for yourself.

Jack: Yeah, I suppose part of that might be true.

Billy: You know what? You and phyllis, you weren’t in the best place when she died and I would imagine that would make her loss even harder. Jack, I think you gotta allow yourself to acknowledge who phyllis was to you. How much she meant to you. You two had a rich, deep history and you got to allow yourself the time to grieve that.

Summer: What I know now is that… everything that we believe to be true is a lie. Mom’s not dead.

[ Daniel sighing ]

Daniel: Summer, I know that you really want to believe that mom’s not dead. I do too.

Summer: Daniel, just listen to me, please. I know that it sounds crazy, but is it really that hard to believe that not everything is as it seems?

Daniel: We saw mom collapse in front of us. Nate and elena, they weren’t pretending to try and help her. They did everything that they could to save her and now we know that she was poisoned and the ambulance crashed and burned. I mean, there’s not a person in this world that could survive all of that.

Summer: What if she survived? And it was all a part of this scheme that was orchestrated by jeremy stark. I mean, you thought that he was involved from the beginning, didn’t you?

Daniel: Yes. But I– I–

Summer: Don’t you see, can’t you see it? He played on all of mom’s emotions. He forced her to be part of his plan for revenge against diane. And frame diane for murder. Mom didn’t have a choice. And even though she regretted things that she’s done, she was– she was trapped.

Daniel: Look, even if any of that is true, why wouldn’t mom come home now? They found stark’s body, she’d be free to come back to us.

Summer: Not if she was the one that killed him.

Daniel: Oh my god, summer. Oh, my god.

Summer: Daniel, listen to me. It was an accident. She was trying to get away from him and she can’t come back to us because then she would be arrested for his murder.

Daniel: If it was self-defense, why wouldn’t she come back and explain everything?

Summer: Because who would believe her? Who would believe her? She would be the one in jail right now for murder instead of diane. Daniel, we have to do something. I don’t know– I don’t know what, but we have to do something. We can’t just let our mom slip away from us forever.

Michael: That’s not at all the way it happened. I didn’t just deliberately take diane’s case to go against your wishes.

Lauren: Then why did you?

Michael: It was victor and nikki’s rush to judgment. They had diane tried and convicted without any awareness of the facts. They didn’t just suspect diane was to blame for phyllis’s murder, they knew it.

Lauren: So, who cares what victor and nikki think, right?

Michael: That’s when I realized that’s just the kind of jury that diane’s gonna go up against in court. A bunch of biased people who have already made up their mind. Everybody deserves legal representation. Guilty or innocent and they deserve an attorney who works to make sure that the system is– that the system works fairly for everybody.

Lauren: Well, I can’t argue with that.

Michael: Exactly.

Lauren: But there are other top attorneys that could have defended her. Lawyers with no emotional ties.

Michael: I think I’m a good attorney because of my emotional ties and you are partially to blame for that. It is why I’m passionate about what I do.

Lauren: Not this time. This is phyllis, our best friend, the victim, the woman who has gone through hell with us.

Michael: You know she meant the world to me.

Lauren: And yet you choose not to fight for her, but her killer could go free because of you. And if that happens, I don’t know if I can ever look at you again.

Are you tired

of washing dishes?

Daniel: Summer, I know how hard it is to let go. I’m dealing with it, okay? And I want you to know that I love you and I will be here for you every step of the way. I will.

Summer: You think I’m a wreck, don’t you? You think I’m out of my mind?

Daniel: I think that you have to admit it is a pretty wild string of theories. But I understand. I get why you would be so desperate for there to be something that would tell us that mom’s still out there somewhere.

Summer: She is. I saw her.

Daniel: If only that were true, it would make everything easier between you and kyle and it would probably fix the whole problem with diane.

Summer: It would change everything.

Danie: Yeah, it would. And that’s a nice thought, but it isn’t real. And it’s not healthy for us to be obsessing over things that aren’t gonna happen, summer. You and kyle, you’re gonna be fine. Right now, there is absolutely nothing that either one of us can do. You should really go home and get some rest. Come on. Just let me–

Summer: So you just don’t believe me? You’re not even willing to consider that I’m telling the truth. God, I just wish– I wish that there was a way to show you. I want to prove it to you. Mom! Mom!

[ Summer sobbing ]

Daniel: It’s okay. It’s okay.

[ Summer sniffling ]

Jack: For better or worse, there was never anyone like phyllis. There never will be anyone like her again.

Billy: No. No, she’s a one-of-a-kind. And that’s a good thing because I don’t think this world could handle another phyllis summers.

[ Phone ringing ] That’s chelsea. Do you mind if I–

Jack: Yeah, yeah, yeah, go.

Billy: Hey, chels, what’s up?

Jack: I cannot imagine going through life without you. Whatever problems we have, I want to fix them with you. Whatever obstacles life puts in our way, I want us to take them on together. Marry me.

Phyllis: I still–

Jack: Then– then there’s really only one word to say. Say yes.

Phyllis: Yes. Yes.

Jack: Yes, yes. Yes, you– you will marry me?

Phyllis: Just put this on, put this on quick, please. Before I come to my senses, just do it. So, you just want to throw in the towel because of one setback?

Jack: This is not a small setback. And I have you now, I can hold you, I can kiss you. I can spend the rest of my life–

Phyllis: No jack! Jack, something is missing. We don’t have a baby. We won’t have a baby.

Jack: We have each other. We have each other. That’s enough. That’s enough for me.

Phyllis: If anybody was a fool, it was me. I was a fool. Anybody who sleeps with a married man is an idiot. I know you hate me and I understand that, but see, we can get past this stuff. People do this. And that– that thing with nicholas, it– it just– it just happened, jack.

Jack: That thing with nicholas didn’t just happen. See, first, you have to take off your clothes.

Phyllis: Listen, I never meant to hurt you. I honestly didn’T.

Jack: You know what? You’re absolutely right. Anything you say right now would be meaningless. Yeah, I know, you love hanging out with me. You know what though? We’re gonna get you out of here and we’re gonna get you to a hospital and you’re gonna have this little girl. And she’s gonna have a full head of red hair.

Phyllis: And nick will see her born.

Jack: Yeah, I could use a sub. Think I need a breather, coach.

Phyllis: I hope you didn’t mean that.

Jack: Why? What?

Phyllis: Because my water just broke.

Jack: What?

Phyllis: I don’t even know if I’m the right person to help you through this, but I’m here and I’m staying. Unless you want ashley or– or tracy to come up, we can call them?

Jack: No no, no, I don’t want anybody else. Look, I know– I know I keep saying this over and over again, I couldn’t do this without you, red. Maybe the reason I didn’t move on with my romantic life was because I already was with the most amazing woman I’ve ever known. Maybe you set the bar too high, red.

[ Phyllis chuckling ]

Phyllis: Listen, I don’t– I don’t think you should say things that you– you might not mean.

Jack: I’m not saying this because I’ve had too much to drink. I’m saying it because it’s true. I have never stopped loving you and I don’t think I ever will. This isn’t charmin!

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue. (Vo) is she tired? Sad? Bored?

Tucker: Home sweet home.

Ashley: You didn’t bring a lot with you.

Tucker: Yeah, I haven’t officially checked out of the athletic club.

Ashley: I see. So you didn’t think that my invitation was sincere?

Tucker: Can you blame me?

Ashley: No.

Tucker: I have a question though, about the arrangements. Jack is not the only one who lives here besides you. How are the others gonna react?

Ashley: Yeah. Yeah, it’s gonna be awkward, right? But you know what? They’re gonna adapt because everybody in this household has bigger things on their mind than you. And besides, I mean, if you haven’t noticed it’s a pretty big place.

Tucker: It seems like it, yeah. Well, I promise I’ll– I’ll try to give tracy and carla and summer all the breathing room they need.

Ashley: I hope that doesn’t mean you’re gonna hole off somewhere and be a hermit.

Tucker: Does that sound like me?

Ashley: No, but maybe I can see you somewhere sitting in your new sanctuary, nursing your favorite beverage. Brooding, perhaps.

Tucker: Why would you go there?

Ashley: Because the tucker mccall I know doesn’t handle being at loose ends well. So, I’m just thinking maybe you should start thinking about what you want to do next.

Tucker: Hm.

Michael: I understand exactly how you feel. I wouldn’t be able to live with myself if I knew I had let phyllis’s murderer walk. But I truly believe diane’s telling the truth. Look, I’ve known a lot of bald faced liars in my life, yeah. And I have developed excellent radar for the art of lying and diane is telling the truth. She believes she’s innocent. That’s why, to her, the only logical conclusion is that she was set up. Unfortunately, the man to blame for that will never pay for his crime.

Lauren: And if jeremy stark is at fault, then why the hell would he be allowed to get away with that?

Michael: Because his body just washed up on a shore of a nearby lake.

Lauren: What?

Michael: I’m afraid so. And now I’m left with more questions than before. You can’t get answers from a dead man. The fact that I can’t call jeremy stark to the stand makes it a hell of a lot harder to keep diane out of prison. But I’m not gonna let that happen because that means stark would win, even from the grave.

Billy: You okay?

Jack: Yeah, I– I– I will be, eventually. It may take some time for me to grasp that I will never see phyllis again. Still longer to accept that– that long beautiful story ended in so much anger and resentment.

Billy: I know it’s difficult jack, but I think it’s important that you acknowledge what she meant to you in your life.

Jack: You were right. When did you get so wise? You were spot on. I needed to look back before I could begin to look forward.

Billy: I’m glad I could be of service.

Jack: You were wrong on one front.

Billy: Oh?

Jack: I am more determined, more eager than ever to marry diane and not as a diversion from mourning over phyllis. As an acknowledgment that life is short. Life is fragile. Life is too precious to waste another minute. I can’t let her shut me out. I can’t lose her, not now.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: I know that you feel like you’ve got to do the big brother thing and protect me, but I– it’s not what I need.

Daniel: I don’t– I don’t see it like that. I am not trying to be your big brother. I just think that we need to look out for each other right now.

Summer: But you’re looking at me like I’m crazy. I haven’t had a psychotic break with reality. I promise you that.

Daniel: But what you’re telling me–

Summer: I know! I know that it sounds impossible. I mean, what do I have to do to prove it to you? I mean, do you need– do you need to see mom with your own two eyes? Could I have her call you or something?

Daniel: Call me? Are you making plans to see mom again, summer?

Summer: No. No, I don’t have plans to see mom again, but I know that I’m going to, and you will too. I don’t know when, I don’t know where but she’s gonna come back.

Daniel: I wanna believe you, summer. I wanna believe you more than anything, but it’s not gonna happen. She’s gone. Mom is gone, she’s gone! New vibrant from air wick.

Daniel: Summer, I am sorry. I am not trying to be dismissive and the last thing I want to do right now is hurt you.

Summer: This isn’t about my feelings. This is about the truth. I talked to her. She told me what happened.

Daniel: Okay. Okay, let’s play this out. We take this story to christine and to chance, okay? We tell them that diane’s innocent, stark, he’s guilty and he’s murdered by the hand of mom, who somehow miraculously is still alive. What then, huh? What do you think’s gonna happen? They’re either gonna react the same way I did or they’re gonna pursue it. Now if they pursue it, we’ve got two possible outcomes. They hit a brick wall, we wind up right back where we started–

Summer: Or they find her. And they bring her home to us.

Daniel: But if they find her, highly unlikely. But say that they find her, what do you think is gonna happen? They’re gonna arrest her, they’re gonna charge her with murder. They’re gonna put her on trial and then diane’s gonna be set free, mom’s gonna be locked up in jail.

Summer: So you’re saying there’s nothing we can do?

Lauren: I don’t doubt that stark played a part in what happened to phyllis. I mean, that sudden ludicrous marriage? That raised all sorts of suspicions in me. But he’s just a low-life criminal and I will not shed a tear for him.

Michael: But?

Lauren: But even if he’s guilty, that does not make diane blameless. You and I both know diane’s hatred of phyllis was real. So, no, I will not share in your belief in her.

Michael: You don’t have to believe in diane. You just have to believe in me. I would never betray you and phyllis that way. You are two of the strongest, most resilient, most determined women I have ever met. That’s why I’m doing this. Seeking justice for diane and phyllis. They both deserve to have the true story told. I believe what I’m doing is right and decent. Why can’t you have faith in me?

Ashley: Cheers.

Tucker: Cheers.

Ashley: When you sold mccall, it was a very big deal.

Tucker: Yeah.

Ashley: Right. I mean, the company is a part of you, body and soul. I’m sure you could look at it, no matter what was going on in your life. You could say, “I built that, that’s my legacy.” It gave you a sense of purpose, success.

Tucker: Yeah, it did. Nobody can take that away from me.

Ashley: That’s true. And your whole identity was kind of tied up in mccall so that when you sold it to victor, I mean, you kind of have to figure out who you are now. Look, I’m just a little concerned that if you don’t have a plan, you’re gonna end up regretting your decision.

Tucker: No, no, no, no, I’m letting go of the past, fully. The future feels wide open, I’m kind of excited about it. And it’s not as if I’m out here wandering aimlessly.

Ashley: Okay. So what’s your plan?

Tucker: Okay, here’s the plan. Are you ready?

Ashley mm-hmm.

Tucker: I’ve got some unfinished business here in genoa city. I’ve got some refocused priorities.

Ashley: Like?

Tucker: Like devon for one. Rebuilding his trust, getting to know my grandson a little better.

Ashley: Yes.

Tucker: And then there’s ashley.

Ashley: Of course.

Tucker: Yeah. Making myself irresistible to her. That’s gonna be a full-time job.

Ashley: Yes.

Tucker: Hm. I’m gonna have to wine and dine her all over the world.

Ashley: Yes.

Tucker: Ply her with my unique brand of charm, which no woman in the world can resist.

Ashley: Hm. Well, that sounds very exciting.

Tucker: Yes, you should meet her.

Ashley: But I think that you might have to have something else in mind besides that.

Tucker: No, no, no. I’m planning on seducing her 24/7. I’m just gonna have to take some breaks for sustenance, but… beyond–

[ Door opening ]

[ Door shutting ] Just between us, you know what’s better than mopping?

Tucker: Jack, hello.

Ashley: Tucker’s my guest, jack, and you should probably get used to seeing him more often around here.

Jack: And why would that be?

Ashley: Because I asked him to move in.

Jack: Tucker?

Ashley: Yes. Tucker. You keep telling me that your personal life is none of my concern, so I figured it must work both ways.

Tucker: That went well.

Lauren: I do have faith in you. That will never change. But even if diane doesn’t have blood on her hands, I will never see her as innocent because she made phyllis’s last months a living nightmare. And I know– I know phyllis brought a lot of that on herself, but she paid too dearly. Because of diane, phyllis left us way too soon. You know what? You’re right. We shouldn’t be here. This is just too painful.

Daniel: I feel just as lost as you do. And honestly, I don’t think there’s a single thing that either one of us can do to fix it. I promise you, we will get through this together. You and me because that’s what mom would want.

Summer: She would, wouldn’t she?

Daniel: Yeah, she would.

[ Summer exhaling ] Come on, I’ll walk you home.

Summer: I just need one more minute.

Phyllis: Whatever you decide, I love you. I’ll never stop loving you. Okay? Uh, I have to go.

Summer: I’m gonna miss her so much.

Daniel: Me too.

[ Summer exhaling ]

Daniel: Ready?

Jack: Next week on the young and the restless… morning.

Tucker: Coffee?

Audra: Did nate tell you he was going to L.A. Alone?

Elena: Yes.

Audra: Well, he didn’T. He went with victoria.

Chance: If you know something or if you’ve learned something new, you can tell me.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Hey baby. I brought you some fruit and Greek yogurt. Ah. Oh. I guess they just call it yogurt here. Come on. I’m not hungry, baby. You gotta eat something. You barely slept last night. What are you running on? Fumes? I’m just, I’m just so worried about both. Listen to me.

Your brother is every bit the merchant Marine I met over 40 years ago. Now, if anybody can get through this, it’s Bo Brady from your lips. Oh, Roman. Hey, I am so glad you’re here. Me too. Sis. Me too. Can you believe us? Well, to be honest with you, I think I’m still in shock. I mean, our little brother. He outruns the grim Reaper only end up right back at death’s store.

Now how the hell did that happen?

I came as soon as I heard. I can’t believe that. Is Dad really alive? Yeah, no, thanks to me.

It’s Donovan. Commander Michaels, I take it you’re here to talk about your uncle. Be the phone half the night with my mother, which is a wreck. Yeah, I’m, I’m sorry for what your family’s going through. Why are you apologizing? I’m happened to my uncle be Wasn’t your fault. Not so sure about that.

The true miracle.

That’s what a nurse called it. And your heart started being again, Angela? Yeah. That’s her name. She said she’d never seen anything like it. Bo I, I, I can’t say that I’m. Completely surprised by it. I mean, I,

I knew you’d never give up. You’d never stop fighting


What happened? He was shot. You survived. He took me at, I need to get the doctor in. No, no, no. Don’t leave. I have to tell him, you woke up.

I don’t wanna be part ever again. We promise.

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

Did you speak to the kids? Well, I got about halfway through Colin and remembered it was the middle of the night back in St. Oh, right. Thomas and Charlotte don’t stay up until two in the morning. No, not usually.

I told ’em to, uh, call me when they wake up. So you seem like you’re deep in thought. It’s on your mind. I, um, I was just thinking about how lucky I am when I’m here in your arms. I have my mom back. Papa is safe. I just pray that God has one more miracle left for my uncle boat.

I mean, damn, I, I don’t know what to feel. Bo’s have been gone so many years and now he’s back alive. I hear you man. I can’t tell you what it felt like to walk in that room, in that police station and see Bo’s faces. He gonna pull out of this. Okay, Brianna now know the bullet. Did a lot of damage. Hope’s in with him now.

Hmm? Hope what? She must be going through. Yeah. Uh, I’m gonna go check on her and see if there’s any change. You wanna come? Uh, you know what, uh, no, no, not yet. I, uh, I just think I need to, uh, give my bears. Yeah. Hey, I’ll keep this dude company. You go ahead, baby. Okay. Oh.

So, uh, how is Hope holding out? Well, about, like, you’d expect, Sean’s the one I’m worried about. I mean, how is that poor kid ever gonna get over shooting his own father? Uncle Steve told me what happened. Sean, you thought that dad was trying to hurt mom, but he wasn’t Sierra, he mom had gotten through to him.

She had, she had reminded him of all the memories that they once shared and he. Look, he was dad again. Maybe you didn’t know. Yeah, but I should have. I mean, how good. I should have realized that mom, mom is the one person that that can always reach him no matter what. Hey, that’s how powerful the love is.

But no, what do I do? I go in there. Guns please, like an idiot. Stop. You can’t blame yourself for trying to save mom’s life, okay? And mom doesn’t blame you either. And when Daddy wakes up, look, if he wakes up, don’t talk to me like that, okay? Don’t say that. Because we just got him back after all these years, and I refuse to believe that God is cruel enough to take him away from us again.

I wanna believe that you’re right. I am Ray. Okay. No, come on. Let’s go see him. You listen. You go ahead. You’re not coming.

I’ll be in there in a minute. Okay, but you have. Seen him, right? Sean, you haven’t Listen, Sierra, I, I can’t. Okay. I can’t, I, I, I can’t face him. I don’t want to, I can’t face mom. I not after what I did. Like it’s No, just, just not, yeah. Okay. Okay. Take all the time you need. But I’m gonna repeat myself. Nobody blames you.

All right? This is not your fault.

Up time,

come back to


Thank God. Okay, let me look at you. Beautiful as ever. As are you



Let me see if, uh, two semesters of Greek and college paid off.

What’s it say? Uh, nothing. Nothing that we didn’t already know. Post. Got a tough fight ahead. We know what a fighter is. We. Yeah, we do.

I had a dream. He woke up.

I’m sitting right in that chair. He opened his eyes. He smile at me. Is it face to face?

This could be a good sign, mate. Yes, definitely. There are so many people out there praying for Paul, have him come back to us. He survived so many things. We have to have faith that he’s gonna survive this too. Amen to that.

It’s really him. It’s really, oh my God.

It’s me and Sierra. Oh my God. I love you so much.

Do you think he can actually hear us? Maybe he can hear me. Yes, he knows you’re here. Honey. Daddy, I miss you. I miss you every single day

and I cannot wait for you to meet your grandson. Your little bow. Sierra, did you say, Sean when you went. Um, yeah, yeah, I saw him. Um, and I tried to get him to come with me, but he wasn’t ready. He’s blaming himself for.

You don’t have to do that.

There you go, buddy. Might help with the jet lag.

Lag. That is the least what I’m thinking.

I bet Roman, listen, I know why you don’t want to go in there and see Bo. It’s because as relieved and happy as you are that he’s alive. You’re also devastated by what he likely did to Kate. What he likely did killed her. Steve, hey, that wasn’t Bo, and you know it, he was under Megan’s control. My brain knows that, but my heart, look, I want nothing more and for Bo to come out of this for hope, their kids, their grandkids, help for our whole family.

But how can I ever look my little brother in the eye again and know the fact? That he took Kate away from me. I’m gonna go give Steve and Roman an update. Okay. I’m Flo Romans here too. Yeah, he just arrived. They’re in the waiting room. They’re gonna be so excited to know that you’re here.

Look, mom, I’m sorry. I’m so sorry.

Look at me. You did what you were trained to do. Listen, I don’t give a damn about my training. I shot my father because you thought that I was in danger and you were protecting me. I know that. And you know that it’s exactly what your dad would’ve wanted you to do to protect me.

You’re right. You’re right. You’re right. I should be comforting you right now. No, I, I’m fine. No, mom, you’re not fine. When was the last time you slept, you had something to eat? I’m not hungry. I’m not leaving until dad wakes up. If you don’t know how long that’s gonna be. Look, mom, she’s right. You’re not doing anybody a favor by running yourself into the ground.

How did I end up with such stubborn children? Gee, I wonder why. I mean,

I guess I could use a shower and change your clothing. Mm-hmm. And a nap. I want you to get some sleep. Come on. Do you have a hotel anywhere nearby? Yeah, right across the street. Okay, good.

You won’t leave this room, you’ll stay with your dad. If anything changes, you’ll call me immediately. Of course, we are not gonna leave this room right, Sean? That’s right.


you not leaving.

Do not wait till I get back.

I love you dad so much.

We need you.

We need you right now. More than that.

So come back to us.

Please come back to us.

You knew was alive and didn’t say anything. Not even to hope. It’s not my finest hour. I’m surprised nobody in your family told you. I saw you at the door and I thought you were here to arrest me. No, actually, I was here to thank you. Thank me for returning Thomas Banks in the missing prisons to ISA custody.

Are you still feeling grateful? Now that you know what I did Alive O Mission, especially one of this magnitude is pretty egregious. But it’s not exactly criminal. I’m not sure the rest of your family feels that way. Have you spoken to Hope? No. Hope’s got enough on her mind. I’m sure I’m the last person she wants to talk to,

but I did get an earful from your cousin, Stephanie. Stephanie, I guess you could say that. She’s not my biggest fan. I can just strangle that bastard if he’d come clean about my Uncle Beau being alive earlier. The literal Greek tragedy of Sean shooting his own dad would’ve never happened. We don’t know that.

Wait, are you defending Michael’s? What? No, I’m, I’m not. It was a dick move that he didn’t tell us about Beau, but he helped us with Thomas Banks. He practically saved my life. Okay. Okay. So he is not completely irredeemable, but he’s damn close. I don’t know what I would’ve done if I’d lost you. Well, I’m still here.

You almost weren’t. You risked your life to help me rescue my parents.

I think Thomas Banks forgot that my father was the Phoenix. You know, I’ve, uh, I’ve risen from the ashes a few times in my day. Mm. More lives than a cat, huh? And I wanna spend them all with you.

What’s wrong? I just, I just feel guilty. My family’s at the hospital rallying around my uncle, and I’m here. In your arms.

Your parents said they would call you if there was a change, right?

You’ve been there for your brothers, your parents. They’re there for me and my kids and I was at my lost

It’s time. Let there be someone there for you in this case. In this case me, hopefully.

You talked me it? Yeah. Mm-hmm. That’s what I was calling for.

I just got a text from Hope. She said she’s gonna go to the hotel and freshen up. I know her. It won’t be for long. Is uh anybody in the room with Bo now? Yeah, sir. And Sean. How’d you join them? I think it’s a good idea. Roman. That’s your baby brother in there. Go see him.

Okay. So I know how hard this is for him. Yeah, it sure is. He’s uh, Have hard time with what Bo did to Kate. What we think Bo did. Yes, I know. We have no way of knowing what really happened. That’s right. All we have is the word of a man who was programmed against his will. I know that right? Hey, oh, Andrew Donovan.

Get over here. Oh. Oh. Hi Steve. How you doing buddy? Hey, doing good. How’s Uncle Bo? Well, he’s uh, in the trauma unit. Um, he hasn’t regained consciousness. I tracked down the surgeon who operated on him last night. Turns out they found something in his brain, something very interesting. Really, that wasn’t in his chart.

What’d they find this? He looks like he’s sleeping and just like he did when he dozed off. When we would watch Cup games together.

Yeah. Yeah.

So, um, did, uh, did Ben and Little be come with you? No, Ben wanted to come, but I didn’t wanna leave, be with a sitter. I didn’t know how long I was gonna be here. So

we’re bell and clear? They’re good. Good. The bell’s, bell’s. Checking in on Victor and, and Doug and Julian. Claire, she has to fly out here, but I told her to hold off until we knew more. Yeah, that’s a good idea.

Oh, also, I, uh, I talked to Chelsea. Oh, nice. Is she coming? Um, she really wanted to, but her obstetrician told her to stay in bed. Peter obstetrician she. What? Is she pregnant too? Yeah, we’re both pregnant. You hear that? Dad? You got so many more grandkids coming your way. Oh God. Let’s just, let’s just hope that he’s around to be able to meet them.

He will be. Right. God, you’re gonna spoil those kids so much. You are gonna give us all parenting advice whether we ask for it or not. You are gonna be the most involved grandparent on the planet for so many years. Just watch. You’ll see. Right Dad,

please God,

don’t take off me again.

You’re leaving. Yeah. I figured it’s best for everybody serve you. I don’t, I’m not really sure.

I just came back to shower and changed. How’s,

he’s in a coma. The doctors don’t deliver. Wake up. I’m so sorry. Why didn’t.

Why didn’t you tell me he was alive the moment you found out? Why? Why? Because I’m selfish.

Because I knew The moment that you found out whatever you and I had would be, it would be over. And that’s not even the excuse That is the reason. And I know this is not an excuse either, but Bo warned me not to tell you because he said, if I did, you and your family would be in danger. Paris, you of all people know what it’s like to be into Jamaica, into control.

They said that then you knew it was him. Not speaking. That was her. I, I, I had an idea. That’s why I came. I came clean. I hope I, I trusted you.

I trusted you. You should have come clean soon. I wish I had. You have no idea.


I just, I just wanna say this. I, I screwed up. Okay. I know I did. It’s just that after everything we faced and, and nearly losing you, I thought,

and I thought we had sense, uh, had something real because.

I’ve never had that.

I, I just didn’t want to let go.

I really did care about you.

I cared about you two ever.

But Post, she’s the love of your life.

I wish we could stay like this forever. Yeah, me too.

I know your family needs you. Yeah, they do.

After the hell that everyone’s been through lately, I just.

I let it not get worse.

I mean, if my Uncle Bow doesn’t recover, hey,

don’t you?

I need you to be positive, okay? And I know you know this, and I know I don’t need to say it, but I’m gonna say it anyway. I’m I,

so this chip was in my brother’s brain, and I would explain how Megan Hathaway was able to control him. The ISA has dozens of case files on the dam. Mayors using this kind of tech to manipulate people and doing their bidding. Well, I don’t have to read those files, do I baby? I lived it. They did it to you?

Yeah. Rolf put one of those ships in my brain to make me think I was stephano. He used one on hope too. Two. That family, the gift that keeps on giving. Tell me about it. I wonder if there’s a way to access the memory on this thing. Good thinking. If we can find out what Bo was up, sir, when he was under Megan’s control.

It’s only one way to find out.

Oh God. Oh, sorry. I just, I didn’t get, um, any sleep on the plane. No, that’s okay. But what? Hey, why don’t you go over to the hotel with mom, find the pen. Hell no. Shawn got here. You take shine bike, Sierra, two big brothers or right? Everything. Oh my God. I’m Hi. Hi.

Oh man. Up to you.

So I, uh, here you’ve been, uh, beating yourself up very good with good reason. Everybody’s been letting me off the hook, but, um, look, I should have just waited. Yeah, and your mom would be lying here. Or worse, you don’t know that you thought your mom’s life was in danger. And it was, there’s not a person I know that wouldn’t have done the same damn thing.

Now, come here.

Okay? You listened man. Okay. This is not your fault. You get that? Can you hear me? This is not your fault. You are a damn good man, nephew. I’m proud of you. I love you. Alright. Okay.

But damn, Megan Hassler. She took one of the best men I have ever known and made him do unspeakable things. Hold a gun on the love of his life, kidnap his own sister and.

Take my cape from me.

Come back to us, bro. Okay.

You gotta come back to us.

Please. Okay. And you know, all the rest of the stuff, everything will, we’ll figure that out as a family. But damn, my little brother, you gotta come back to me. Okay? You gotta come back to us.

Hey, is there room for another Brady? Okay. You. Hi. Oh my gosh. You are a sight for so eyes. And you are as beautiful as the day you married my brother. Uh hmm. Which time was that? Every time, mommy, I’m be gone very long. Please tell us that you got some sleep. Yeah, I’m, I’m good. I’m good. Um, could I ask a favor?

Sure. Anything, uh, could I just have some time alone with your brother please? Well, look, go. I mean, I’ve gotta go check with Steve and Kayla anyways. Yeah, and I am going to call Ben and oh and see how they’re doing without mommy right soon. To my love. I will, John, would you like to come and say hi to your nephew?

Amazing. I love you, sweetheart. I love you so much. I love you so much. I love you. I you love you too, sweetheart.

Okay, Brady.

It’s just me and you. Now, together, alone,

we need to talk about Harris.

Harris, Hey, you leaving? Yeah. We’re on our way to the hospital to see my Uncle Beau. Yeah, I bumped into help earlier. She filled me in. And like I said, uh, to her, I’m sorry that I didn’t come clean about Beau earlier. Hope came back here. Yeah. She said she was gonna change and then head back to the hospital speed with the man she loves Ray, and I know you don’t need to hear this from me, but I’m glad your parents are okay.

Thanks. And the truth is, I don’t know if I’ll ever be able to forgive you for not telling us if about Uncle Bo sooner. But you did save us from Thomas Banks. Yeah, we owe you for that. I would’ve been a dead man for sure. If you hadn’t a show. No. Happy to help. Good luck, Stephanie. Yeah, I, I hope your uncle be wakes up from that coma.

I do. He’s got a lot of people who love him. He’s got a lot to live for.

So that scanner is able to read what’s on the chip. Yeah. My ISA laptop is capable of decoding even the most sensitive microchips. It’s reading it as we speak. Well, let’s hope it will tell us what was going on in Bo’s head when he was under Megan’s control. Yeah, it’s possible. It’s also possible that Rolf engineered the chip to.

Try my hard drive liquor, strip of bacon. Let’s hope not. Andrew, when did you get here? Uh, uncle Roman just landed in Greece today. Okay. Uh, What are we looking at? Don’t everybody answer at the same time. Um, the surgeon found a microchip in Bo’s brain. Is that a good thing? Well, we’re hoping it might give us some insight into Bo’s psyche when Megan was pulling his strings, meaning that, uh, we could find out what case slash moments on earth were like.

Do you really want those answers, Roman? I can handle it. Okay. You sure I can stop the scan? Megan’s already put, put in prison. You know, and it’s up to you how it going. I need another truth about what Bo did to my wife and what he did with her body. I owe it to Kate. I owe it to her family. Okay. Then let’s see what’s on this chip,

sweetheart. Mommy loves you so much. She loves daddy too. Mm-hmm. Yeah. We’ll FaceTime again tomorrow. Okay. All right. I love you guys. Bye.

Thank you.

Thanks. That little boy yours. There’s a cute Oh yeah. When he is not being an absolute tyrant. Oh God. I miss my voice so much. I’m sure you do. How’s Ben doing?

He’s having a really hard time wrapping his head around the fact that dad is still alive.

John, when right after I gave birth to Bow, dad’s spirit came down to visit me, his spirit. Yeah. I, uh, I was in distress and all of a sudden he showed up and Ben saw it too. That’s how I know I wasn’t imagining it. I just, I don’t understand how that’s possible if daddy isn’t actually dead. Yeah, I don’t, I don’t know.

No clue. But it sounds to me like he found a way to make his way back to you in a little bow. When you needed him the most. Just like he always did. Yeah. Let’s hope that, uh, there’s still some of that magic so he can find his way back to us.

Harris said that

you told him, um, much lemme know that you were alive.

Oh, I know that. Wasn’t you talking, it was Megan’s brainwashing conditioning her. Whatever the hell she did to you, Bo,

I have no doubt that you, the real you wants to be with me as much as I wanna be with you.

Beautiful eyes,

so I,

come on. Please,

please, please.

It’s gonna be alright. Let it out. Angela, last I heard, I just started my shift, but I had a feeling that you needed a visit from me.

She’s not waking up. You listen. You listen. I know what you’re going through is hard, but you and this man have been to hell and back to be together, so don’t you dare. Don’t you dare give up on him.

Oh my God, Sierra, hi. Oh, wow. Look how you’re all grown up. Ah, well I am a mother now. Oh, I know. Mm-hmm. I’m seeing pictures of beautiful baby boat. He’s just horrible. Thank you so much, Chad. Very, so nice to see you. How’s, how’s your dad doing? Um, nothing has changed really. Mom is up there with him now. Is Sean up there too?

No. No. He, uh, he went to the hotel to give Claire a call and update her, but you should head up there. Your parents are there and Uncle Roman, they’re all gonna be really happy to see you. Thanks. And Sierra, don’t lose faith. Okay? If anyone deserves a miracle from above, it’s your dad.

I would never give up. Not ever. It’s just so hard to see him in this condition. I know it is sweetie. But anybody can see by the way you look at that man, how much he means to you. It’s my heart, my whole heart, and my hero since I was 18 years old. Well, honey, You hold out for that hero. You hear me? You keep fighting for your man until every drop of sand runs out of that great eyeglass in the sky.

Tell that to Bo. God, trust me. He’ll heal you,


This right.

I will hold out for my hero.

Do you hear me?

I love you too. I miss you. Come back.

I thought you said it was almost done scanning the chip. Uh, scans complete. You ready? What do we got? It looks like a video file look, a chip recorded video. I guess somehow it was able to. Download BO’S activities through his field of vision. Okay, can you search for a specific time and date? Roman. Now show me Andrew, please find Kate for me.

Okay, just, just gimme a second.

All right. There she is. All right. Hit play.

Bo, you’re not going to kill me. Having your daughter’s grandmother having your brother’s wife. This is. This is hard to watch.

Didn’t shoot me go before I changed my mind. Roman mommy didn’t do it. Bob did not shoot Kate. Oh, could mean Katie is alive. But where the hell is she?

[ Relaxing music ]

Katie: This is why I left you, bill. But it’s also why I love you.

[ Bill sighing ]

Carter: You’re thinking about it too, huh?

Katie: You mean what happened earlier at your place?

Carter: Big step.

Katie: It’s a major step. And both of us kind of said “it,” without saying it, you know? We don’t need those three little words, even though that’s what we were feeling.

Carter: Are feeling.

Katie: Yeah. Mm-hmm. I know that neither one of us really wanted to rush things. Wanted to take our time getting to know each other.

Carter: Mm-hmm.

Katie: And I’m glad we did.

Carter: Me too. In fact, you know, you can stay here and we can keep getting to know each other.

Katie: Oh? Really?

Carter: You don’t need to go see bill, do you?

Sheila: You know– what– what is this room? I’ve never been in here before.

Guard: Your visitor, it’s another inmate.

Sheila: Another inmate.

Mike: Hey, doll face.

Carter: Bill’s made it more than clear that he wants you back.

Katie: Well, contrary to what bill spencer might think, he doesn’t always get what he wants.

Brooke: Oh! Oh, I’m sorry, I don’t mean to interrupt.

Katie: Uh, that’s okay. I was just leaving. I have a date with bill.

Brooke: Oh!

Katie: I’ll see you later.

Carter: Have fun.

Katie: Bye.

Sheila: I can’t believe it.

Mike: Yeah.

Sheila: Oh, it’s really you.

Mike: Your old pal, mike guthrie, in the flesh. Surprise, surprise.

Sheila: It certainly is.

Mike: Believe it or not. I’m still in this place. We’re staying in the same five star high class joint. But I wanted to check on you and make sure you were okay myself. I heard about the heart episode. I was worried about you. How’s the ticker?

Sheila: Still ticking.

Mike: But you’re doing better now, right? I mean, look at you. You look like a mill.

Sheila: Oh, I guess it’s the, uh, the five star cuisine that they’ve been feeding me.

Mike: Glad to see you haven’t lost your sense of humor. Kind of hard not to. This place.

Sheila: Yeah. You know, I– I never thought… that I’d be locked up again.

Mike: Oh, yeah. Didn’t expect your savior, bill spencer, to double cross you either. But holy moly, babe, did he ever.

Katie: Don’t tell me you picked those yourself?

Bill: What if I said I did?

Katie: I would ask you what you’ve done with the real bill spencer.

Bill: So, I thought we would, uh, eat by the pool. The chef is setting it up now.

Katie: That sounds nice.

Bill: You know, since you wouldn’t have dinner with me the other night.

Katie: It’s not that I wouldn’t have dinner with you. I just had other plans.

Bill: Other plans. Hm. Like a yoga class.

Katie: Sort of.

Bill: Well. Since the other night didn’t pan out, I’m glad today did. I am seeing you here. In this house. The house where we raised our son. It just feels right, katie. Like you’re finally home. What’s the #1 retinol brand

Mike: Must be rough, being back in the slammer again.

Sheila: I– I hate this. Being locked up like a caged animal, just wondering if this is the way that– that I’m gonna be spending the rest of my life.

Mike: Don’t go there. One day at a time.

Sheila: Yeah, well, that might work for you, but not me. I spend every waking moment trying to figure a way out of this place.

Mike: Well, I hate to break it to you, but I don’t think that’s gonna happen.

Sheila: Whose side are you on?

Mike: Yours. Always. I pulled a lot of strings to come over here, to visit you. I thought a friendly face might help. Look. You know how I feel about you. On the outside, I can’t compete with the forresters, those handsome chiselled jaws. But in here? Yours truly, not so bad. I mean, look around. Suddenly, mike guthrie’s a real catch. There. There’s that smile.

Sheila: I appreciate it. I really appreciate you, mike.

Mike: I bet I know what else is bothering you. I know how much you love your son. I bet you’re missing finn something fierce.

Sheila: You have no idea. But not to worry. I have a plan to see my son again very soon.

Carter: So basically, bill wants another shot to convince katie to take him back. You know, bill being himself, the man never gives up.

Brooke: Even though he probably should.

Carter: If that’s your way of asking me if I think if katie is totally over him.

Brooke: Well, I see the way katie looks at you, and it’s obvious your relationship is… progressing. I mean, bill must see that too.

Carter: Of course he does. That’s why he invited her over to the house. That’s why she’s there now. This is how it’s gonna go. Bill’s gonna remind her of their relationship, all the good things. You know, their marriage. And then he’s gonna go into the family they created with will, and then, he is going to apologize. He is gonna say sorry for hurting her over and over again. And then, he’ll promise never to do it again. And don’t get me started on all the jewelry.

Brooke: The jewelry.

Carter: I’m sorry, I’m saying more than I should.

Brooke: No, you don’t have to apologize to me. I know you care about katie.

[ Brooke giggling ]

Carter: Confession?

Brooke: [ Whispering ] Yes!

Carter: Earlier today, katie and I basically said “I love you” to each other.

[ Brooke gasping ]

Brooke: What? Really?

Carter: Mm-hmm.

Brooke: Oh, my god, I’m so happy for you two. I’m so happy.

Carter: Thank you. Thank you. And that’s why I think I’m so worked up. I’m just– I’m not crazy about her being with bill right now. I don’t trust him.

Brooke: Yeah.

Carter: Especially when it comes to your sister.

Bill: I still don’t know how he pulled it off. What was he, like five or six? And he– and he tapes $5 bills all over the wall spelling out “happy birthday daddy?” Right– right there. Right on that wall. So, I would come down the stairs and see them first thing in the morning. You remember that?

Katie: I– of course I remember it. I was the one who gave him the money.

Bill: Of course you were.

Katie: But the idea was all his.

Bill: Well, he always knew how to get on his old man’s good side, didn’t he?

Katie: He always worshipped the ground you walked on. He still does.

Bill: You miss him as much as I do?

Katie: Every moment of every day.

Bill: I miss his mom, too.

Katie: Bill, I know what you’re doing and… I haven’t forgotten our family and the wonderful moments that we’ve shared.

Bill: I’m glad to hear that. And there are more good times to be had, and there are more memories to make. As a family. As a couple.

Katie: Bill, I can’T.

Bill: Because of carter? People call it the biggest smalltown festival in minnesota.

Carter: Katie’s her own woman. She’ll make the right decision for her life. For herself.

Brooke: Carter, you don’t have to like that bill’s trying to win katie back.

Carter: Let’s face it, brooke. We all know bill loves you.

Brooke: Bill is a part of my past. A past that I don’t plan on revisiting.

Carter: I get that. And I understand, but still, katie doesn’t deserve to be anyone’s second choice. She’s too special for that.

Bill: You and carter, it’s that serious?

Katie: We never expected it to go anywhere. You know, we’ve been colleagues for a long time. We just started spending time together and we realized that… we like spending time together. I admire him and I respect him.

Bill: Okay. I understand that he comes with a lot of baggage of his own.

Katie: If you’re talking about–

Bill: I’m talking about, well, to put it mildly, that whole mess with quinn. A lot of people got hurt, katie.

Katie: Yeah. And nobody knows that more than carter, and he regrets that it went as far as it did.

Bill: Well, I have plenty of regrets of my own. Most importantly, not cherishing what you and I had when we had it. Losing your faith and your trust. Now, if carter can learn from his mistakes, can’t I do the same? Can you give me that much?

Katie: Of course. Yes, of course. I– I’m not angry. I– I’m not resentful. I am not trying to hold you to a higher standard. I care about you, bill. I always will.

Bill: But you care about carter more? All right. Look, um, I’m gonna ask you a question. I want you to be straight with me. What exactly is going on between you and carter?

[ Katie scoffing ]

Mike: Why would you expect finn, the son you shot–

Sheila: Accidentally.

Mike: Why would you expect him to come and see you?

Sheila: Okay. Well, you already know about my heart attack.

Mike: Yeah. So?

Sheila: Well, I put in a request to be seen by my attending physician.

Mike: Your son.

Sheila: Precisely. Mike, look, finn could have let me die, but he didn’T. I think that speaks volumes, don’t you?

Mike: Well, obviously you’re hoping it does.

Sheila: I’m still his birth mother. I’m the one that gave him life. And somewhere, deep down, I just, I– I know he still loves me. He’s gonna forgive me. He’s gonna accept me and I can’t just sit back waiting for that to happen. I’ve got to make that happen.

Mike: Never ceases to amaze me. Your willingness to keep fighting. But come on, sheila. You gotta be realistic. The fbi nailed you. You confessed to murder one. Those are some big obstacles.

Sheila: Yeah. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. And make no mistake, mike, I have the will. No two bodies are the same.

Sheila: Mike. I don’t intend on spending the rest of my life in this hellhole.

Mike: Like I haven’t heard that before.

Sheila: You’re doubting me.

Mike: Oh, no. No. I learned a long time ago not to do that. But I’ll say it again. The situation is different. You confessed to killing two people.

Sheila: No. No, not two. Just one, okay? The other one was an accident. Besides, I won’t be doing this on my own. I’m gonna have help from the outside.

Mike: Who? Sheila, I don’t mean any offense, but you’re poison. Nobody’s gonna touch you. Look, it’s time to face facts. Sheila, you’re gonna be in this place a long, long time.

Guard: You got a visitor.

Sheila: I do?

Guard: You emailed him.

Mike: Seriously, sheila?

Sheila: He got my email. He’s coming. Okay.

Mike: Whoa, whoa, whoa. What are you doing? Who are you seeing? Damn it, sheila. Answer me!

Sheila: I’m ready.

Mike: Ready for what? Sheila, come on, talk to me. Sheila, wait. Sheila! I love you!

Katie: I don’t wanna talk about carter and me. I– I wanna talk about you and me.

Bill: Well, I always like the sound of that.

Katie: I appreciate you too, bill. I do. And not just because you’re will’s father, but because of everything we’ve shared and everything that we’ve meant to each other. I can see that you are the man that I always knew you were, that you’re at your best. You’re the man who put sheila carter away for good.

Sheila: What room is this?

Guard: All right. Here you go.

Sheila: Oh, god, that feels good.

Guard: Make yourself comfortable.

Sheila: Thanks. Thank you for coming. You won’t be disappointed, I promise you.

[Wind howling]

[Dramatic music]

You think they saw us?

Or heard us?

Well, the “haunted star” is docked. Let’s hope her radar is off.

Well, even if it’s not, a radar is usually used to detect debris, other ships, icebergs, things like that. We came in so low beneath the hills, and landed on the opposite side of the island.

We took the scenic route. That explains the bumpy landing.

Well, it’s the safest way to approach victor’s island undetected.

And for bringing home trina, liesl, and your grandsons.



Okay, so robert’s busy and you’ll be in the “bureau” about stepping up the rescue.

Ah. A lot of red tape. You know, the island is in international waters, so there’s not really any government that can claim it.

No sovereignty to answer to. You’d think that would make it easy.

Did he say anything else?

Well, I was hoping that on reflection, he’d decide that we were crazy to think that victor’s in the possession of a biological weapon, but no, he does think that is the likely scenario.

And he’s gonna have to convince them of that. They’ll need air-tight evidence to get them to take any action.

Yeah, but how do we find air-tight proof?

I called in a favor.

[Knock at door]

Hi. Anna devane. What have you gotten yourself into this time?

[Line trilling]

You have reached

curtis ashford.

Leave your name and number

and I’ll call you back.

Hell of a time to have your phone off, curtis. Call me.

Where’s my mom?

She’s in the interrogation room with the sec. Diane’s with her.

Did they say what it’s about?

All I can say is that your mother’s in a little bit of trouble.

My client is absolute willing to cooperate, even though your interrupted her son’s wedding to drag her down here.

We do apologize for the timing, but this is a very serious matter. We have cause to believe that you colluded to drew cain to raise the stock price of aurora media.

And it could you both to prison.

So how you feeling, mrs. Corinthos?

[Laughs] Happily married, mr. Corinthos. How ’bout you?

Same. Just sorry all this business with my mom, you know, interrupted our night.

Interrupted, but didn’t derail. We got married. That’s what matters. I am worried about your mom, though.

I’m sure this will all get sorted out quickly.

We just spoke to diane. Sec got a tip that carly colluded with drew during the aurora-elq merger last year.

That merger didn’t even happen. What’s the big deal?

What I want to know is what does this mean for you, michael? You had a division at aurora. You’re a major shareholder at elq. Will they bring charges against you too?

[Electronic warbling]

Sweep’s done. No bugs.

Great. Boss wants you to check the perimeter while I get everything set up.

Copy that.

Got you now, kid.

[Dramatic music]

Trina, honey, it’s gonna be okay. We’re gonna find you.

Mom, I’m here. I’m here.

I love you.

Dr. Robinson?

Or is it dr. Ashford?

No, no, no. It’s still dr. Robinson. How can I help you, mr. Baldwin?

Well, you know, you’re here by yourself and I don’t know, I thought maybe you could use a little company since we’re kind of in the same boat.

Thank you. That would be lovely. And I’ve told you before. Please. It’s portia.

Oh. Hi, portia.

[Chuckles] You must be so worried about liesl.

I am, but she’s a tough cookie. And, you know, if you cross her, she’s very dangerous. So I kind of find that comforting right now.

I had not thought of it in that way. [Chuckles]

Well, not to make things worse.

Not really sure that you can.

Oh, oh, oh, I can. You know, just ask anybody. They’ll tell you that. So trina, she’s not a mad scientist like liesl, so those cassadines, I mean, you must be scared as to what they have up their sleeves.

Yeah, I am.

Well, you must be worried sick, which brings me to my million-dollar question. Why are you here at the hospital and not at home?

Simply put, work is the only thing that’s keeping me from completely losing my mind right now.

Holly, I’d like you to meet dr. Andrew maddox.

Oh, why do I know that name? Oh. Right, you were involved in the anamnesis project.

And I’ve been trying to right that wrong ever since.

Well, you have my empathy. A while ago, I got mixed up in something deplorable and ever since, I’ve been trying to help the bureau any way I can.

But andre’s been doing the same. You know, thankfully, he’s been backchanneling into the bureau’s records without raising any alarms.

Unfortunately, I don’t have access to any files directly related to project demeter. But I’m hoping I got you all the next best thing. Back when I was doing psych evals for the bureau, I had access to the complete dossier of the original operation against the cassadines.

The crazy weather machine? That was-

40 years ago.

I’m amazed they didn’t delete all those files, with victor in charge.

Well, I’m sure they did. Fortunately, the wsb is an institution of many fail safes and redundancies, so I just downloaded it off the server.

Isn’t that traceable?

Oh, yes. Once they realize that I did it, they’re gonna come looking for me and I’m gonna have a lot of questions to answer.

All right, then we better find something quick.

Mayor collins, commissioner ashford. I just checked with your office and it appears you are taking personal time. Give me a call back, please.

Insider trading?

Yeah. During the aurora-elq merger.

But my mom lost money. She lost her hotel.

The sec doesn’t care whether your mom lost money or not, josslyn. They care about the timing of the stock purchase.

Jordan, jordan, my mom did not do anything wrong.

I hope that proves to be true, ms. Jacks, although at the moment, there are far more pressing matters going on in port charles than some business deal.

Yes, exactly! Like finding trina, spencer, and ace, and nobody is sure how much longer willow can wait for liesl obrecht.

I’m right there with you, and I have every hope that our colleagues from the sec will treat your mother fairly.

Oh, yeah. Because she has diane. [Scoffs]

And with luck and ms. Miller’s skill, they’ll release your mother as soon as they’re done questioning her.

They’re looking for drew as well. Carly’s not gonna give him up.

So drew went radio silent too?

Do you mean someone else went off-grid?

Hold down the fort here. I need to go check in on somebody.

Brick. I thought you were overseeing things on the west coast.

Eh, wasn’t a problem to fly out. Deal’s important, and it’s a good thing I came, ’cause sonny’s been delayed. Family matters. You know what it is. He shouldn’t be too long, but I’m here. Just in case.

The tip that the sec got only concerns carly and drew. They’re operating under the assumption that michael was in the dark about any conversation as far as the merger. That true, michael?

Of course.

Michael, maybe you should go to the station and be there for your joss.

There’s no way I’m leaving your side.

I’ll still be here when you get back.

Okay, you guys have fun at your wedding night. Have some cake, do whatever you need to do, and I’m gonna go see if your mother and josslyn are okay.

You and drew cain have a close relationship, correct?

We’re members of the same extended family, and he’s my son’s uncle.

Well, you look pretty friendly right here.

[Laughs] As my client just stated, they are members of the same extended family. And another member of that extended family, namely client’s daughter-in-law, was recently diagnosed with stage four leukemia, so when did it become a violation of sec statues for two family members to comfort each other?

Look, we’re not unreasonable.

Yes, you are.

And we do not want to make an example out of you. You’re a private citizen, not the founder of a publicly traded company. This’ll go a lot easier for you if you cooperate and tell us where we can find drew cain.

Hey, I’m sorry all this went down on our wedding day.

Did you call in the tip?


Then it’s not your fault.

[Soft dramatic music]

Hey, you okay?


[Chuckles] Never made a woman swoon before?

Hey, I have an idea. Why don’t you go upstairs, get comfortable? There’s still plenty of food and champagne. There’s no reason we can’t still celebrate.

I like the way you think let’s do it.

All right.

Thank you.

You okay?




I’m sorry, michael. I really hate that things went down like this today.

[Chuckles] What do you mean? It is exactly what you wanted.

So have you checked his office, his car?

Ms. Spencer, we know where he isn’T. Just tell us where he is.


Go to hell.

Ms. Miller, do you have any advice for your client at this juncture?

I think we all just heard my client make her position abundantly clear. And as for this tender moment caught by the gh security cameras, well, you could have footage of my client and mr. Cain making out like hormonal teenagers, and you still have no indication as to the actual substance of their conversation, business or otherwise, so you’re gonna have to do a hell of lot better than that.

Your client, who had no previous investments in aurora media, made a seven-figure stock purchase immediately prior to the proposed merger between aurora and elq. The timing alone presents a strong enough argument of collusion and insider trading. Although we are within our rights to hold ms. Spencer for 24 hours without charging her.

All right, well, can my client at least get some coffee if this is gonna turn into a staycation for her? Or is that an upcharge?

[Sighs and clears throat]

[Suspenseful music]


Oh, hey. How are michael and willow?

They’re worried about you.

We all are.

Hey. Any luck?

No. Still trying to find a satellite signal. Give me a second.

Okay. Keep at it. In the meantime, guys, gameplan remains the same. Here we go. The “haunted star” docked here on the west side of the island right about 14 hours ago.

Okay. How far are we from the “haunted star”?

I would say less than an hour. I mean, the island is small. It’s less than one square mile. The best way to get there is just to cross over the landmass without getting caught.

It’s a good thing we dressed warmly, right?

You know what? Just so we’re all on the same page, we’re not here to take down victor cassadine? Okay? Whatever he has planned is between him and the bureau. We have to stick to our original plan of rescuing trina, spencer, obrecht, and the baby. This is no time for anyone’s personal vendetta. Are we clear?


So much of this redacted, andre.

You know, they’d have to-

[Knock at door]

I know.

Anna, I need to talk to you about the-


Jordan. Been a long time.

Years…in fact. So what are you doing in port charles?

He heard about my ordeal and he just wanted to check on me.

Course he did. And I’m sure this has nothing to do with the fact that no one can reach laura, curtis, or drew? And since valentin’s not here by your bedside and andre is, that means something’s going down, so please tell me the four of them haven’t gone off on some half-baked rescue mission of their own?

We can neither confirm nor deny a rescue mission, half-baked or otherwise.

I was afraid of that. I should’ve looped you in. My bad. I’m sorry.

So valentin, curtis, laura, and drew all went off to rescue trina and the others and cause an international incident in the process? Would it help to know that where they’re going does not technically belong to a sovereign nation?

[Sighs] Just tell me how I can reach them.

So you can wish them luck?

To tell them to stand down.

Okay, look. Valentin, he does have a sat phone, but the reception is dodgy at best.

Give me the number.

I will. But jordan, I think it’s important for us to allow them to at least try to bring the hostages back.

Okay, convince me. Why is this our only option?

Because while the world’s governments are sitting around debating what they’re going to do, what action to take, we can run out of time saving them.

What do you mean, run out of time?

We believe that victor has been searching for a weapon of mass destruction.

And I think I know what kind of weapon.

What is it? Holly?

The end of civilization.

[Ominous music]

Said to me and drew last fall?

Michael’s mother knew about the potential merger, which is why she bought the stock. That’s called insider trading, and it’s illegal. Martha stewart went to prison for much less.

[Sighs] Luckily for both of you, nobody has really looked into it, but I think it’s something that you both need to consider.

You threatened drew that you could tip off the sec. Now you have.


[Chuckles] If you really think so little of me that you believe that I would send your mother to prison while your wife is dying, then you don’t know me at all.

[Dramatic music]

Well, ned, I guess you’re right. I really don’T.

Do you have any idea where drew cain is?

He was supposed to be at the wedding walking willow down the aisle, but I guess his plans changed.

Well, do you think he got wind of the sec’s interest and bolted?

Doesn’t strike me as the type.

Fine. Well, then at least carly is not antagonizing two federal agents on behalf of someone who ran off and left her holding the bag.

The sec knows about me and drew. Did you say anything to anyone?

The only people that I know that know about this are brick and olivia. They would not say anything.


Are they still holding you?

Yes. They think I know where drew is.

Do you?

He went after victor to find liesl so we can bring her home to save willow, and if the authorities find him and get in his way?

Excuse me for a second.


You were with sonny when he was ambushed. What’s your take on the shooter?

He was a pro. He only missed the first shot because I saw movement out of the corner of my eye. But once he had me and sonny pinned, he was methodical, working to get the range.

So ex-military?

Almost certainly.

Mm. But a ghost. Fingerprints, dna, nothing showed up on the database.

Someone invested a whole lot of money to make this guy invisible.

Why send him after sonny?

That’s what sonny wants to know. Maybe pikeman can tell him.

[Phone ringing]

Speaking of the devil. Sonny, what’s up, man? What’s going on?

Carly and drew are in a jam. I need a favor.

Name it.

All right. I’ll get my people on it asap. All right. No problem.

[Sighs] I got to take care of something for sonny. You good here?

All good.

[Dramatic music]

Listen, I know what it’s like, you know, trying to distract yourself so that your mind doesn’t go to bad places. Hell, I haven’t slept in a quite a while. I also know what it’s like not to be able to help your child. Not that this is the same thing.

No, I mean, you don’t have to justify your fear. You love liesl. And we’re both scared for our loved ones right now.

Yeah, it’s the helplessness that I can’t stand. Ever since, you know, trina and liesl were kidnapped, I have a sneaking suspicion that I’ve been kept in the dark by, you know, robert and anna and felicia and laura. You know, I think they know exactly when victor has his martinis. And this whole holly coming back to town, I think it’s all connected to luke spencer’s death.

Why do you say that?

Because… luke ended them in ’81 and they’re sore losers, so victor got rid of luke and now, luke’s family wants to get rid of victor. And you know who’s the collateral damage? Me and you.




Liesl. God forbid you cross the cassadines or the spencers!

[Sighs] I wish I did not agree with you. But I tell you one thing. I’m gonna do everything in my power to make sure that spencer cassadine does not come near my daughter ever again. And when curtis brings trina home, I want to make sure that I-

whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, hang on. What do you mean curtis brings trina home?

[Suspenseful music]


portia. Do you know something?

Holly, what did you find?

See for yourself.

What is–may I ask?

It’s the original dossier on the cassadines. From 1981. It’s got conversation between senior directors at the bureau, conversations that even robert wasn’t privy to back then.

Okay, so what we’re looking at here is psych profiles of the three cassadine brothers, mikkos, victor, and tony. Tony was just more interested in living his playboy lifestyle than pulling off any kind of grand schemes.

Mm, so no mastermind?


Unlike mikkos, who is a megalomaniac entirely fueled by greed and power.

So how is this different than victor?

Well, their actions might be similar. Their motivations were very different, ’cause victor’s always been an idealist. I mean, evil, certainly. And now where mikkos wanted to control the world, victor was always determined to fix it. Like he really believed that these weapons that they were developing would curtail the developing population that he believed was draining the resources of the world.

So is this what victor’s trying to do now?

Project demeter? Demeter, goddess of harvest who was so broken-hearted over her daughter, persephone. That’s what gave us the seasons.

In greek mythology, one prayed and worshipped demeter because she was responsible for the weather.

Is that the threat we’re dealing with? Could victor be trying to reverse the climate crisis? And if so, why would he need hostages?

I don’t know. It says here that weather-related tech is one of the brothers’ endeavors.

[Suspenseful music] Could project demeter be the bureau’s attempt to retrieve all those weapons from 40 years ago?

Scroll down. There’s another weapon that hasn’t been accounted for yet.

Anna? What is it?

It’s an engineered virus. One that only a small portion of the population will be immune to.

How many wouldn’t be immune?

According to this, the pathogen would be lethal to 80% of the population.


Is this what victor’s idealism has led him to? Saving the planet at the expense of 80% of the population? We have to call the wsb.

No. We can’T.

[Dramatic music]

You are dangerously close to saying things you can’t take back, things that will make you look very bad when the truth comes out.

No, the truth is, ned, you’re the one who originally pitched us all coming together to force valentin out. Then when drew put his company on the line, you double-crossed him. But you still thought he was a threat, right? So you turned him over to the sec. My mom was collateral damage, because we all know that you have no qualms about selling any of us out if it keeps you in power at elq. I mean, come on. You even sold your own daughter out.

Both of you, that’s enough.

You’re right, brook lynn. It is.

[Tense music]

Ms. Spencer, good news. You’re free to go.

Well, what has prompted this sudden change of heart?

We found drew cain. He boarded a flight from san diego to maui 15 minutes ago. In the meantime, the investigation is still ongoing. The charges could be pending.

Understood. Let’s go finalize details, shall we?

[Indistinct chatter]

[Suspenseful music]


What the hell? What’s going on? Why does the sec think drew’s on his way to maui?


All right, I’m gonna scope the area, see if I can find a satellite signal before we make our move.

Hey, I’ll go with you and keep an eye out for victor’s men. Okay?


Hey. How you holding up?

I’m cold.


I’m also kind of energized.

[Sighs] All the adrenaline taking you back to a more adventurous time?

Yeah. [Chuckles] Something like that, I suppose.

Yeah. And?

I guess I’m trying to remember a time before all of this madness began. You know? Before the cassadines infiltrated my life. And they tried to take it over the first time I crossed paths with victor. And his brother… I was trina’s age. And now trina is on the “haunted star.” That’s the ship that helena gave luke and me for a wedding gift. And then she cursed it and us. She liked her curses.

[Sighs] I’m not sure I much believe in curses.

I didn’t think that I did, either. But helena’s words have been looming over me for decades, and every time I think that I’ve gotten past it, comes right back to haunt me again.

Okay, so she’s dead. Haven’t you won?

[Laughing] Have I? Oh, my goodness. The cassadines keep finding ways to hurt me and my family. And now, it’s my grandson’s it’s got to stop.

Okay, then we stop it. If you say it’s a curse, fine, it’s a curse. Then we break it once and for all.

I like the sound of that.

We can’t share our theory with the bureau. Not now.

I think we have more than just a theory, andre.

There’s a biological agent that could wipe out most of the world’s population. If not now, dr. Maddox, then when?

Let me put it like this. If you were the wsb and you received this intel, what would you do? How would the bureau react and respond to this information?

Okay, clue me in.

I think what you’re saying is that if the bureau finds out that there’s a large-scale bioweapon on the island that they will do everything in their power to neutralize the threat.

Yeah, but isn’t that what we want?

Not if they send an aerial assault team to contain the virus.

They have to make a choice… between saving eight people…

including a baby.

And saving eight billion. And they’ll just bomb it. They’ll just wipe that island off the map.. killing everyone.

[Ominous music]

What did you do?

What do you mean?

The men from the sec found evidence that drew’s heading west.

Oh, yeah. I hope that drew can stay ahead of them.

Drew wasn’t in san diego. And he definitely wasn’t heading to maui.

As long as it keeps the sec busy, that’s all that matters, carly.

You didn’t have to do that.

Do what? Look, I know things haven’t been great between us, but we’re still family. All of us. Keep me posted.

[Soft dramatic music]

Sorry I lost my cool like that.

You’re worried about your mom. That’s good reason.

Yeah, well, she’d be the first one to tell me not to… not to waste this precious time.

And she would be right. I want to get back to the gatehouse and spend some time with wiley and amelia. Let’s celebrate the start of our marriage with them.

[Phone ringing]

Sorry. It’s my mom.

Take it.

Hey, mom.

How’s willow?

She’s fine. She’s just anxious for you.

[Sighs] Well, it was dicey for a while. They wanted me to tell them where drew is off to.

And what’d you say?

Well, I didn’t have to say anything. They’re under the impression he’s headed to hawaii.

What? How?

Your father.

No, they couldn’t possibly.

The bureau’s focus is the greater good. Protecting the many over the few. And as heartless as this might sound, they’d consider trina, spencer, and the baby expendable.

We must remember, though, that victor did take obrecht to that island presumably to make the pathogen viable. Now if I know anything about liesl, she won’t make it easy for him.

Which means we have some time.


Time for what?

Time for laura and the rest to bring the hostages home before we alert the bureau to the situation.


It’s a calculated risk. Victor could still release the pathogen.

Well, what’s the point in saving the world if we can’t save the people we care about?

I don’t actually know that much, really. I just know that he left town because curtis left me note.

And I don’t think he would leave town by himself. So who went with him?

Think maybe you should speak to anna.

Yeah, I will. Thank you, doc. See ya.

[Suspenseful music]

Hey, good news. Finally got a sat signal. We’re about half a mile from the “haunted star.”

This is good. Let’s go.

Whoa, whoa, whoa. The footprints. Would victor have his guards patrolling this far from the island?

So far no timetable for how long this thing’s gonna last. Just assume we could be here for weeks.

Talk about deserted.

That’s why you’re getting paid a hell of a lot more than your standard fee.

so we all done here?

Not quite. There’s another matter you need to be made aware of.

Uh, what?

Pending the sec investigation, all of aurora’s accounts and assets have been frozen.

What? That’s ridiculous, diane.

Mm-hmm, and so have yours.

Can you believe him? For michael to accuse me like that? Insinuate that I would–

double-cross drew? Secure your own position as ceo, making sure he’s not a threat? I don’t know, dad. Sounds like your standard tactics for me.

Sonny send the sec down the wrong trail to buy drew time?

Yeah, yeah, he really stepped up for you.

Not just for me. For you, too.

Yeah, I get the feeling that sonny had something to do with this hit on drew’s location.

No comment.

Mm-hmm. Then why aren’t you celebrating? Because it was sonny?

Again, no comment.

I know you think sonny did wrong by your mother and michael, but maybe this is a sign that one day, there’ll be a chance to make things right.

[Tense music]

We’ve got company.


Guards. [Sighs] No doubt a power move. Making sure their boss arrives fashionably late.

We’re ready. Where’s your boss?

Where’s yours?

I’m here.

We’re gonna get this started or what?

So we’re in agreement, then? We’re going to wait for valentin and the crew to try to bring everyone back?

How much time?

I don’t know. We’ll have to figure that out. But we can’t stall forever, obviously.

Well, I have some contacts in the canadian military. People I trust. I can get word that they might want to get in striking distance.

Oh, good. That’s great. Thank you, andre.

And I’ll try to reach valentin. He needs to know about this.

All right.

[Soft tense music]

I’ve already asked so much of you, including silence while we wait.

So you need something else? The worst I can say is no. So ask.

The bureau is probably gonna run this investigation through your department. And if they find out the location of the island or… what victor’s really up to…

I’ll run interference for as long as I can.

Thank you.

Get what’s at stake. We have to keep this under wraps. People would panic if they knew victor had a biological weapon.

[Dramatic music]

[Chuckles softly]

Come home, baby girl. Please, please come home.

Come on, valentin. Please pick up.

We should head back.

Sounds good to me. I’m freezing.

[Phone ringing]

[Tense music]

Did you hear that?

Daytime Soap Opera Short Recaps

Days of Our Lives logo

Recap written by Michele and Cheryl

Roman found Steve and Kayla in the waiting room. Kayla wanted to know if Roman wanted to see Bo. He wasn’t ready to see him yet. Kayla walked away. Steve told Roman that he was worried about Shawn. He didn’t know how he could live with shooting his father. Hope woke up from a dream about Bo. She begged him to wake up for her. Kayla showed up and scanned Bo’s chart. She said Bo had a tough fight ahead of him, but he was strong. She said that everyone was praying for him. Shawn was upset about shooting Bo. Ciara approached him and gave him a hug. She asked if their father was really alive. He said he wasn’t thanks to him. Ciara assured him that no one blamed him for what happened. He couldn’t face their parents after what he did. She said to take his time. After her conversation with Shawn, she went to Bo’s room. She sat by Bo’s side and told him that she loved him. Kayla wondered if she saw Shawn. Ciara told Kayla that he blamed himself for what happened. Shawn arrived and let them know he was there. Andrew arrived at Harris’ room. Harris apologized for what his family was dealing with now. Andrew assured him that it wasn’t his fault. Harris told him what happened. Harris thought he was there to arrest him. Andrew was surprised because he was there to thank him for what he did to Thomas. He said that his lie by omission isn’t a crime. Harris wished the rest of his family felt that way.

Steve assumed Roman didn’t want to see Bo because of what he did to Kate. Roman knew Bo was brainwashed, but he didn’t think he could look him in the eye again after what he did to Kate. Shawn apologized to Hope for what he did to Bo. She knew he shot Bo because he was protecting her. She said that Bo would have wanted him to do that. Shawn felt like he should be comforting her. She assured him that she was fine. Ciara knew it wasn’t true. She wanted to know the last time Hope ate or slept. Hope agreed to go to the hotel across the street. Shawn and Ciara refused to leave Bo’s side. After Hope left, Shawn sat by Bo’s side. He begged him to come back to them. Ciara let Shawn know that she talked to Chelsea. Her obstetrician wanted her to stay in bed. Ciara told Bo that he had more grandchildren coming. Shawn hoped he would get to see them. Ciara was sure he would recover and see his grandchildren. Kayla met up with Steve and Roman. She urged Roman to go see Bo. Roman was about to see him when Andrew arrived at the hospital. He showed them the chip the doctor found in Bo’s brain. Kayla wondered if they could access the chip’s memory. Hope ran into Harris in the hotel lobby. He let her know that he was leaving. She wanted to know why he didn’t tell her about Bo. He said he was selfish. He knew he screwed up, but he thought they had a chance at something real. He didn’t want to let it go. He cared about her. She cared about him too, but Bo is the love of her life. She said goodbye to him and left. Roman went to Bo’s room. He assured Shawn that what happened wasn’t his fault. He blamed Megan for everything that happened including what happened to Kate. He sat by Bo’s side and begged him to come back to the family. Hope went back to the hospital and wanted more time alone with Bo. She pleaded with Bo to open his eyes so she could tell him that she loved and missed him. Nurse Angela arrived and told her not to give up on Bo. She told the nurse that she would never give up on Bo. It was hard for her to see Bo like that. Angela told her to keep holding out for her hero until the last piece of sand was in the hourglass. After Angela disappeared, Hope got in the bed with Bo. She would hold out for her hero for as long as it took. Bo’s fingers twitched. He told her that he loved her. She said she missed him and told him to come back to her. Andrew, Steve, Kayla and Roman watched the chip that was in Bo’s head. They saw that he shot over Kate’s head. He told her to run before it was too late. Roman was happy that Kate was alive. Kate was seen chopping the head off a fish.

Interview with Perdita Weeks

TV Interview!


MAGNUM P.I. -- Season: 4 -- Pictured: Perdita Weeks as Juliet Higgins -- (Photo by: Christopher Patey/CBS/Universal Television)

Interview with Perdita Weeks of “Magnum, P.I.” on NBC by Suzanne 4/20/23

I’m very grateful to Ms. Weeks and NBC for answering these questions. I was scheduled to speak with her via Zoom April 20, but I had to rush to urgent care due to some problems with my spine (I’m fine … it’s an ongoing problem. I was in a lot of pain, though). I hated to cancel it because I had done so much work on these questions and watching the show to catch up. It was truly awesome that they let me send in the questions so that she could answer them via email. She got them back to us fairly quickly, too. Believe me, this is rare! I’m only sorry that this is being put up after the mid-season finale, but there just wasn’t time to re-schedule the interview. I hope you enjoy them!

1.       Has the show moving from CBS to NBC impacted you at all?

It was definitely a reminder of how lucky we are to keep doing what we’ve been doing for a few years now. Sort of feels like a brand new show with characters that we know really well, which is a great place to be.

2.       How long did you know that Juliet and Thomas might be getting together romantically?MAGNUM P.I. -- "Dead Ringer" Episode 506 -- Pictured: (l-r) Jay Hernandez as Thomas Magnum, Perdita Weeks as Juliet Higgins -- (Photo by: Zack Dougan/NBC)

I sort of guessed that’s where we might be heading in Season 4 when Higgins was dreaming about Magnum. I thought they couldn’t dangle that in front of the audience and not let it play out.

3.       What kind of feedback have you gotten from fans about their romance? Has it been mostly positive?

There are definitely those who would have preferred they remain friends, which I understand, because, let’s face it, sex can ruin a friendship– but overall, I think people are pleased they are finally being true to their feelings. And I reckon any relationship that starts with two such good friends must have a hope.

4.       Do you have a funny story from filming this season that you can share?

Can never think of any, but trust me, there’s been plenty of laughter.

5.       So, the show shoots certain months out of the year. Do you live in Hawaii year round, or just for shooting?

As soon as we wrap, I go back to the UK, which is home.

6.       The mid-season finale, episode #10, is quite exciting. Anything you can tell us about filming it?

Storywise, it was a direct continuation from Ep 9. So, same clothes, etc. When you have been wearing the same costume for a week, you do quite fancy a change. Also, I did a lot of yawning in Ep 10 as the characters had had very little sleep, and I thought it made sense, but I think it must have looked odd as it was all cut out. Maybe there’s a gag reel somewhere out there, solely with Higgy yawning.

7.       I asked some fans on social media for questions, so here are a few of the best (you are very popular on there, so there were MANY)…

These are from Facebook, the group MAGNUM P.I. – The NBC Reboot TV Series

8. Alana wants to know if you enjoyed directing the upcoming 18th episode and what it was like?

I loved directing. Absolutely exhausting, as you wear all the hats at all times and every decision is yours as director. Which is great, but tiring.  It was great fun to work with the crew in an entirely different way. They are the best and were so unbelievably supportive. I can’t imagine a better situation to have one’s directorial debut. I count myself very lucky.

9. Will you continue to try your hand at directing?

I would bite the hand off [the person] that offered me another directing gig. Can’t wait.*

10.  Pauline asks, What’s it like being one of two females in a predominately male cast?

It doesn’t really feel like anything to be honest. Once you have spent that much time with people, they are just family.

11.  Y-Yew on Twitter wants to know the latest Hawai’ian slang you’ve learned.

Opala! (Trash. Or, rubbish, as we say in England). And I love saying ‘tasty pupus’

12.  Dane on Twitter said that your character has inspired many people, including his daughter, and he wants to know if that is something you thought might happen and what part of playing Juliet surprised you?

Honestly never thought about it. Just a very cool perk of the job. Love those future women wanting to learn some fighting moves. Juliet is flawed, too, of course, but she has some pretty cool skills, to be sure.

13.  Gesi wants to know your favorite spot on the island.

Love the windward side beaches, sandbar and any ridge way up where you can hear the birds and see the ocean.

14.  Back to Facebook: Diane wonders if you watched the original “Magnum PI” and what you thought of it.

I have never seen an episode to be honest. But I was very aware of it – the image of the red car, and the hunky guy in a Hawaiian shirt. But as far as I could tell, there weren’t too many female leads in it, so in that respect I guess we are ahead

15.  This show has a lot of action.  Hugh wants to know if you do your own stunts.

We have an amazing stunt team and I gave probably had 8 stunt women play me over the 5 seasons. They teach me the fights, and we do the whole thing, except for anything like going through glass, or being slammed from a height. It’s better if we do the whole fight as then they can show the faces. I don’t have any proper training, just what we learn on the job, and I love doing the stunts.

16.  Dawn asks whether you or the other actors ever contribute any ideas to the show?

Last year Zach created an episode storyline with one of the writers, which was cool. Our showrunner, Eric is great and encourages us to contribute ideas. He will ask me at the beginning of a season if there is anything I want to do. I told him I can ride horses, play tennis and fence – all of which he wrote in to the episodes. I also fancied doing a southern accent last year, and they wrote a storyline around me going undercover as a southern belle which was rather jolly.

17.  Donna wants to know if you like Zeus or Apollo better? 🙂

They are all gorgeous. There are four dogs that make up Z and A, one of which is a girl dog.

*Note, this is a British saying, meaning “to be in such a hurry to take what they’re offering that you snatch it out of his hand, like a dog who is so eager to get the biscuit that he bites your hand off with it!”

Recap written by Michele and Cheryl

Brady went to see Eric at the pub. Sloan left them alone to talk. Brady asked if everyone hated her. Eric said he wasn’t one of the people who hated her. He said they are taking things to the next level. He asked why Brady wanted to see him. Brady said he needed to find a way to keep Xander away from Chloe. Eric said Chloe would see through Xander’s act. Brady said Nicole didn’t. Eric said he had a point. He told Brady to forget about Xander. He said Xander wasn’t the problem. Brady said he was the problem because of the way he handled things between Rachel and Chloe. They believed Chloe wouldn’t let Xander in her life in a personal way. Brady said it wasn’t like they were moving in together. Xander suggested that he and Chloe move in together. He said she could clean the place while he pay the rent. She didn’t want to be his housekeeper. He said it would make up for what he did to her. They look for a place online. Chanel ran into Alex. He said he felt bad about what she was going through. She said if he really felt bad, he would get Sloan in bed and get a confession out of her. He refused to do it. He said Marlena help him realize he was screwed up. He said if he slept with Sloan, he could end up back where he started. He was willing to give her a loan. She said she appreciated it but she would be okay.

Talia kissed the man at the motel. She told him the police didn’t know he put her up to drugging the biscuits. He said it was his idea, but they were in it together. She said she was the one who was out there taking the risks while he was laying low. He was upset about what she said. He said his mother was the one Chanel pushed off the roof. He asked if she thought he liked sending her to do this for him. She apologized. She said she never should have said he put her up to it. She said she wanted to help him and still did. He said he knew how much she has done for him. She told Colin that Sloan was a suspect. She said Sloan had no idea he was the one behind everything. She thought about how she got Paulina’s keys from her purse when she and Chanel were fighting with Sloan. She told him there was no evidence connecting Sloan to the attack on Paulina’s office. He said since she used the keys, there was no forced entry. The police couldn’t pin anything they did on Sloan. She thought they should tell Sloan what they were doing. He said he didn’t want to make her an accessory. He said she would never risk her law license to do something illegal. While they were talking, Jada called her. Talia put the phone on speaker. Jada asked her what she did between leaving Chanel’s place and going home. Talia said she forgot that she had a headache and went to buy aspirin and took a walk. Jada told Rafe that Talia’s memory was good. She wondered how Talia forgot that she had a headache and went for a walk. She said as a doctor, Talia would have access to drugs. He asked about motive. She said it didn’t make sense. She said it went back to Sloan. Talia was concerned that her alibi wouldn’t work. Colin was upset. When she said Paulina and Chanel were nice people, he was upset again. He apologized for yelling at her. He asked if she was still with him. She thought they should back up a little, but he wanted to push the pressure on them. He said he needed her and couldn’t do it without her. He said he loved her. Sloan ran into Leo. She said she had a story for him. She said she had information on the police commissioner and his new detective. He said the story was boring. She said he could force Abe to enforce the fraternization policy against his friend and political allies. She said he could blow up the mayor’s office and the Salem PD. He liked the idea of being feared. He asked if she thought his column would throw Rafe and Jada’s investigation off track. She wanted to find out.

Recap written by Michele and Cheryl

EJ thought about Nicole talking about her secret with someone on the phone. Nicole walked in the room and wondered if something was wrong with him. He gave her an excuse for what was wrong with him. Stefan and Gabi walked in the room. He didn’t hesitate to let EJ know that he hired Gabi as his consultant. He let him know what she will be doing at the company. He let EJ know that Gabi was going to evaluate him. EJ said if something was wrong with the company it was Stefan’s fault. He offered Nicole the same position so she could evaluate Stefan. She reminded him about her job at Basic Black. EJ wanted her to make great use of her talents. She accepted the position. After their conversation with Stefan and Gabi, EJ and Nicole praised each other for their performances. They hugged each other, but they had concerned looks on their faces. Sloan was upset that she was blamed for what happened at Sweet Biscuits. Melinda showed up and went off about the situation. Sloan was upset that she accused her without evidence. She knew that Sloan was the only one who hated Chanel enough to set her up. Eric said she didn’t have proof and what she was doing was considered slander. Melinda was going to make her pay since she was a victim of the biscuits.

Rafe assured Jada that the drugs wore off. Abe arrived and wanted to know why there weren’t any arrests made in the Sweet Bits situation. He said Chanel was the only one who paid the price for what happened since her career is in jeopardy. He wanted to know why Sloan wasn’t arrested yet. Rafe let him know they didn’t have evidence against her yet. Rafe thought the situation was too personal to Abe. He agreed that it was, but he loved his family and the town. Sloan thanked Eric for having his back with Melinda. She was scared and wondered who really drugged the biscuits. Eric said they had to find out who the intended target was. Sloan wondered if she were the target or was Chanel the target. Talia walked up to Chanel and noticed that no one was taking any food from her. Talia blamed herself for that, but Chanel told her that it wasn’t her fault. Chanel told her that she wasn’t the one who drugged the biscuits. Talia thought about drugging the dough. Chanel told her that she wouldn’t be able to keep her as an employee. She would ask Tripp to get her a job at the hospital, but she said she’s a baker now. Chanel didn’t want her working for free, but Talia believed in her. She thought it was meant to be to work for her. Later on, Rafe and Jada question Talia and Chanel. They told the police their versions of what happened leading up to the drugging. Melinda approached them while they were interrogating Jada and Talia. Rafe and Jada told her there was a 12-hour window when the dough was unattended. Melinda told them that Sloan had an alibi for that time. Melinda wondered if they had other suspects. Jada said they were working on it. Talia was around the corner while they were talking. Rafe and Jada compared notes from their interviews with Chanel and Talia. Jada realized that Talia’s story didn’t add up. Talia knocked on someone’s door. A bearded man answered the door. He wondered what took her so long to get there. He gave her a passionate kiss.

Transcript provided by Suzanne



Oh, my gosh. You guys look incredible.


You look like real-life princesses.

Yes, but no princess is complete without her crown. Right?


Um, I’ve got to take this.

Okay. Um, here. Help me out?

Oh, yes.

Here you go. All right. Just lean your heads in.


And we’ll put this right-


Beautiful. Oh, my god.

Let me see. You guys are officially perfect. Right? Turn around.




It’s like you read my mind. I was just thinking how much I’d want you here too.

Hey, you know, the guests are starting to arrive.

You’re so good with them.

Donna and avery?

Strong and confident but still playful and fun. It’s the kind of mom I want to be.

Hey. That’s the kind of mom you are. You’re the best. Right?



What is all this?

It’s called food, tracy.

No, what I mean is, what are you doing with it?

It’s for the wedding. Initially, I was gonna call a caterer. Then I thought, why don’t I do it myself? You know, give it that nice, personal touch.

A wonderful touch, sweetheart.

Yes, just what all brides dream of-

an all-you-can-eat wedding buffet.

For your information, tracy, willow did not want some stuffy, stuck-up sit-down dinner.

You’ll see. It’s gonna be very elegant.


Brook lynn, you don’t need to be here. Olivia and I have this covered.

I’d actually prefer to stay behind the scenes right now.

Ah, so you can avoid chase?


What, am I wrong?

Look alive, people. Everything’s almost ready in the living room. How are things going in here?

Oh, not to worry. All of the food is pre-cooked, just like a picnic!

The flowers, huh? All right, so this is where mommy and I will be standing when you give us the rings.

I have an important job, don’t I?

Oh, yeah, extremely. And there is no one I trust more with it.


Oh. And there is the beautiful officiant.

And her equally, if not more, beautiful sister.

Yeah. Kristina?

Right. Hey, dad.


I’m so glad you came.

So am I. And you look absolutely beautiful, as usual.

You ready for this?

Oh, I think so. Michael said that they’re keeping things relatively simple, so I don’t know. I can’t believe they asked me to officiate.

I can.

Yeah, I can too. You’re the perfect choice, especially given your relationship with willow and michael.

Tj and molly, are they on their way, or-

yeah, they should be here any minute.

Hey, look at this handsome duo.

Ooh, looking sharp, boys.

I was giving wiley a lay of the land.

Whoa. Hey, buddy. You’re gonna crush it, wiley.


Hey, buddy! Are you excited about the wedding?

Oh, yeah!

I bet. This is the greatest ringbearer in the world.

Yeah, the best.

What did I do? Well, I gave the sec a heads-up that a certain ceo was giving his girlfriend stock tips.

Oh, you told the sec about carly and drew?

No, I had martin grey pass on an anonymous tip that the ceo of aurora media and his secret girlfriend were engaged in insider trading. So basically, I took your advice.


Never felt better.

Ah, uh-huh. And how long do you think that’s gonna last?

You know what, mom? Can you and joss take the girls up to the main house?

I’m sure they’d love to see how the preparation is going.


Yeah. Well, careful what you wish for, ’cause maxie might put you to work. Come on, you guys.


Aw, come here.

Aw, good luck.

You’re perfect. All right. Let’s go, ladies. We’ll see you up there.

Pick up your dresses!


There we go.

[Both sigh]

[Door shuts]

Okay. How are you feeling?

Honestly… I’m scared. I just so want this to be the beginning of something, and I’m terrified that it’s the end.

[Dramatic music]


Oh, my god. Hi. How are you?

Oh, here, let me get this. Hi, tj.

Madam officiant.

Don’T. It’s way too much pressure.

Hey. Hey, we’re all here. Let’s get dad and let’s get a photo.


Uh, no. The photographer will get that later.

But let’s commemorate this day, man.

Yeah, and who knows the next time we’ll look this good is?

That’s a good point too.

Okay. Yeah, okay. Okay.

Dad. Dad, come here.



Okay. Yay, picture time. Okay.

Okay, here. I’ll take it.

All right.

[Camera shutter clicks]

There we go.

Hey, it’s your wedding day. You might want to look like you’re enjoying it.

Yeah, I know. I plan to enjoy every second.

[Clears throat]

Looks great. Okay, wait, a couple more just like this. Hold on. Hold on. Smile.

[Camera shutter clicking] Cute.

I love it.

Oh, my goodness. The gang’s all here. Everyone, get ready for pictures.

I want to be in the pictures.



Then come over here.

Hey, wiley, come over here for a picture.

Why don’t we take this up to the stairs?

Why don’t we take it up at the stairs? Yeah.


Right up here?


Hey. Hey, I can take the photo.

Um, no. It’s okay. I, uh–I got it.

[Indistinct chatter] Okay. Say cheese. All: Cheese.

[Camera shutter clicks]

Hey, josslyn, you want to get in?

Um, I’m good for now.

Okay. Suit yourself.

[Camera shutter clicking]

You know what? All right. These are so adorable.

Let’s go. Let’s go in.

[Singsong] I want to see the pictures.

Tj. Is everything okay with molly?

Okay, the kids look adorable, but me on the other hand…

what are you talking about? You look beautiful. You’ll send me those, yeah?

Yeah, of course.

[Warming up voice]

Ned, please.

Excuse me. Michael and willow asked me to sing at the ceremony, and I don’t want to disappoint them with rusty pipes.

Wouldn’t want anything to derail this ultra highbrow wedding.

All right. You know what, tracy? I’ve had just about enough of you.

Let’s go and see the guests, gran–I mean, tracy. I’m sure everyone is excited to see you.

Fat chance.

Even still, let’s go. Come on. Okay, this way. That’s right.

Sweetheart, deep breath.

Hmm? I didn’t say anything. I didn’t say a word.

Which says everything.

Exactly how long is mommy dearest planning on staying?

Molly’s fine.

Are you sure? ‘Cause she seems a little off to me.

I’m sure. But I am glad that she has the support of her sisters.

How did the doctor’s appointment go?


That’s it? Fine?

I don’t know. It’s private, kristina.

Okay, the davis women don’t do private. What’s going on?

It turns out getting pregnant may be more difficult than tj and I had hoped.

It’s a buffet, not a bout of food poisoning.

Time will tell.

Well, it usually does. So just leave it alone–oh!


Chase, hi.

I’m sorry.

Oh, chase, the young man you’ve been hiding from.

What? No.

The policeman who owes you a debt of gratitude.

I’m sorry?

Did my granddaughter move heaven and earth to get your badge reinstated or not?

Exaggeration is sort of her thing. Let’s go find your seat.

Any jitters?

Uh, actually no.


How about you? Think you can handle the rigorous best man duties?

I’ll do my best, man.

Oh, I like that.

[Chuckles] Hey, listen, you deserve this. You’re a great brother. You’re a great guy. You’re gonna be a great husband.

Yeah, I hope so.

I know so. You’ve been through hell multiple times, and you got someone that loves you just as much as you love them.

Yeah, forever. Whether willow’s with me or not. You know, long, short, or somewhere in between. No matter what happens, dante, this is-

this is the happiest day of my life.

See, and the fact that you know that-

that you can see that–that’s the greatest gift of all. Hey, I’m happy for you.

Thanks, man.

The world is full of beautiful things that end. And the truth is, none of us know when our time is up. And in my opinion, the biggest tragedy is throwing away what we have today worrying about what’s gonna happen tomorrow. You’re surrounded by your family and friends. You’re gonna marry the man you love.

Love with all my heart. It took me a while to know it, but… michael is the one.

Do you know how rare that is? How so many people go their entire lives and they never experience that? I mean, I know you appreciate every minute you spend with michael and your kids, but if today is the only day we get, shouldn’t we make it the best one?

You told me to call the sec. You handed me the phone. You almost dared me to do it.

No, no, nina, I was playing devil’s advocate. I was trying to show you how way over the top the idea was. No, it was reverse psychology. I was trying to talk you out of doing it, not encourage you to do it.

Well, that backfired.

Yeah, clearly.

Carly has yet to face a single consequence for what she did. Had she told willow about her birth mother, me, then willow wouldn’t be on death’s door right now. She could’ve gotten that bone marrow transplant months ago, and she’d be thriving instead of withering away.

Okay, I need to stop you right now because now you are skating dangerously close to alternative facts.

Okay, just tell me one untrue thing about what I just said.

[Sighs] Yes, it’s true that carly was wrong. And yes, she should have told you and willow the truth. But that’s not the reason willow is sick.

She delayed her treatment.

Nina, because of the baby, not because of carly.

But had willow known that-

no one knew. You’re forgetting the fact that willow didn’t tell anybody about her cancer.

You’re not blaming willow now, are you?

No. No, of course not. I’m just simply saying that no one had all the information, not even carly.

Okay, you know what? It doesn’t matter. Carly and drew, they broke the law. And is it so inconceivable that carly should pay for her crime?

Oh, see, but, nina, that’s just it. You send her to prison, it’s not carly who pays. It’s you.

Well, I think that’s it for the prep. I can just play hostess to the guests, at least till the ceremony begins. Hey, hey. Hey, girls. What did we say about running in the house?


Uh-huh. Aren’t they adorable as they cut a path of total destruction through the house?

You blow me away.

Really? Tell me more.

Pulling a wedding together in a couple days.

Mm, you say wedding. Tracy says picnic.

Oh, don’t listen to her.

Hey, guys, have you seen donna and avery?

Thataway. I’m just so happy that I can do something for michael and willow after everything they’ve been through. Well, everything they’re still going through. But also, I had a lot of help.

Sorry, um, have either of you heard from willow?

You are amazing at putting things into perspective. You know that? Okay, no more thinking about tomorrow or next week. Today I live in the moment.

That’s right.

Thank you, carly.

Thank you. No, really, thank you. I’m so grateful that michael found you and that you fell in love. And I pray that it lasts for the next 60 years. But if god forbid it doesn’t, it doesn’t take away from the joy that you’ve given each other for the past two years or the love you’ve given wiley and amelia.

But doesn’t part of you wish michael had never met me?


So he could be spared the heartbreak?

No, willow. I mean, would it hurt to see my son in pain? Yeah. But it would hurt even more for him to never be in love. I love seeing his face light up when you walk in the room. Or you two with wiley. Or when michael’s holding amelia. You’ve given my son so much. And I wouldn’t wish any of that away. I just want more of it for you. All of you.


So do I.


Ugh. But we’re not thinking about that today.

No, we’re not.

No. Today we bask in the joy and the love and the light.

Okay. Is it dress time?

[Chuckles] Let’s do it.

Okay, come on.

Thank you. All right.

I love you so much.

I love you too.

[Tender music]

Of course it’s me who pays. It’s always me.

Oh, that’s not what I meant.

Carly has come between willow and me over and over and over again. She has made sure that at every step, challenge, crisis, that she’s the one that willow turns to for support, not me. Take today, for example. It’s my daughter’s wedding day, and who gets to play mother of the bride? Not me, carly. I’m not even invited to the wedding.

Nina, I don’t need convincing that carly is a piece of work, but I do need you to acknowledge what’s really going on here. Why did you sic the sec on carly?

What do you mean?

Just answer the question.

Because carly and drew, they violated-

oh, come on! You don’t give a damn about the security and exchange commission. You don’t care about laws or statutes or shareholders. Just admit it, nina. You wanted revenge.


Come on.

Willow. Oh, my gosh. You are the most beautiful bride I have ever seen.

She speaks the truth.

See, I told you.

We’ll see you in there? Okay.

Okay. You look beautiful.

Hi, mommy!

Hi. Are you ready to be the best ringbearer ever?

You look pretty.

Thank you. And I’m sure your daddy looks devastatingly handsome, but no one is more handsome than you.

How are you feeling?

Good. I’m ready. Thank you again for, you know, officiating.

Yeah, of course. You know, jason would be really happy for you.

[Sighs] Yeah. Yeah, I’ve been thinking about him a lot today.

So have I. And about you and willow, of course. You know what’s funny? She looks so soft and sweet on the outside, and of course she is, but I don’t think people realize how strong she is and how she’s been through. I mean, just like you. You’re kind and easygoing. The peacemaker-

mostly, that is. But I don’t think people realize that you have a core of pure steel. And I am so glad that you and willow were able to recognize that in each other. And I am honored to be leading you through your vows tonight.

Yeah, thanks. I love you.

Back at you.

[Doors opening]

Excuse me. Could everyone please take their seats? We are about to begin.

Ah, showtime.


So are you ready to start the rest of your life?

So ready.

You’re wrong.

Am I?

Yeah, you’re wrong. Way wrong. Because I’m not doing it for revenge. That’s more carly’s mo.

Mm-hmm. So you don’t want to wipe that sanctimonious smile off her face?


After everything she did to you? Engineering it so that willow would go to her for love and support, even after you found willow a bone marrow donor.

Exactly what I’m saying.

Yeah. I know that’s what you’ve been saying, but you’re trying to pretend it’s not the reason that you turned carly over to the sec, and I need you to see that it is.

Because you think what I’m doing is wrong?

I’m not gonna judge you. You want revenge? Go for it. Get your revenge. I’m just saying it better be worth it to you, because if this comes out, it is the end of you and sonny.

[“Canon in d” playing]

[“Bridal chorus” playing]

You’re breathtaking.

And so are you.


thank you, friends and family, for joining us to celebrate the union of michael and willow. When they asked me to officiate the wedding, I was, um… I don’t know, I was kind of surprised, a, because I’ve never done this before, and b, that there’s probably a reason for that.

[Laughter] But when I sat down for a second and thought about it, it actually-

it made a lot of sense. I’ve known michael since he was just a kid. And we have been through a lot of life together. And watching him grow into the man he is today has been one of the greatest privileges of my life. And, willow, we’ve had some shared experiences, which I will not get into tonight, but it has given me an insight into the kind of person she is. Strong. Resilient. Beautiful. And so, so brave. All of the traits that she and michael have in common will only serve them as they embark on their life together. I love you both so very much.

I love you too.

Joss, you’re up.

Some shakespeare. “Let me not to the marriage of true minds “admit impediments. “Love is not love “which alters when it alterations finds. “Or bends with the remover to remove. “O, no, it is an ever-fixed mark “that looks on tempests and is never shaken. “It is the star to every wand’ring bark “whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. “Love’s not time’s fool, “though rosy lips and cheeks “within his bending sickle’s compass come. “Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks “but bears it out even to the edge of doom. “If this be error and upon me prov’d, “I never writ, nor no man ever lov’D.”

That was beautiful. Now ned will be performing a song that the bride and groom have chosen.

[Gentle strumming]

Sonny’s never gonna find out, but even if he did, he’d understand.

No, he wouldn’T.

Yes, he will. Because no one more than sonny has seen how carly has treated me. The cruelty. The utter disrespect. You know, sonny and I, what we have, it’s the real deal. If it wasn’t, sonny wouldn’t have sacrificed everything for me.

But that’s just it, nina. Sonny sacrificed everything. And he kept choosing you over them time and time again, and at great cost. Now I have learned the hard way that sonny and carly, they have their own history, and part of that history is a blind and stubborn and even toxic loyalty. I’m not even talking about romance. The two of them could be at each other’s throats, but if a threat comes for one of them, the other one will step in and defend them. And so, if the sec goes after carly and sonny finds out that you were behind it, I don’t see him backing you.

Michael and willow have made things easy on me today and have requested a traditional ceremony, so here we go. Michael, do you take-

actually, um, sam, I know we asked for this, but… now that I’m standing here and looking at you, I just-

I have to tell you how thankful that I am. For your friendship. For your–your courage. Your love. Your compassion. Your… support. But most importantly, how you’ve been such an amazing mother to wiley. And now amelia. And the fact that I get to call you my wife is…

wait, what? We’re getting married?

I also forgot to thank her for her sense of humor. Of course. Look, willow, I couldn’t love you more if I tried. But I am going to try every single day for the rest of our lives.

Wow. I can’t let you have your say and not get mine. It’s ironic that you would be up here thanking me when I was a person who was alone for most of my life. And then came you. At first, you were my friend, and such a good one. Supportive. A great advice giver.

[Chuckles] You never judged. As everyone here knows, the first time we did this, it was a legal maneuver. But then, this crazy thing happened. As each day passed, I realized how happy I was to be married to you. And it quickly became something I wanted to last. It’s like my whole frame of reference shifted. What I’d refused to see before was suddenly standing right in front of me. All of that time, I’d been falling in love with you. And since then, that love has only grown. I’m fulfilled in ways I never thought possible because of you. And our kids. And this amazing family of yours.

Hey, ours. Ours.

Ours. I am so incredibly lucky.

I think you both are.


[Tender music]

Are we good to move on to the vows now?

Yeah. Yeah, we’re ready.

Okay. Do you, michael, take willow to be your wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health…

I’m really putting you through the paces on that one.

Till death does you part? Will you love and honor her for all of the days of your life?

Oh, I will, and I do to all of it.

Okay. And do you, willow, take michael to be your husband, to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, until death does you part? Will you love and honor him for all of the days of your life?

I will.


Hey. Thanks, buddy.

Way to go, bud. You were perfect. Thank you.

It’s possible that no one will ever find out.

It’s possible.

But you don’t think it’s likely.

I think it’s true what they say, that secrets have a way of coming out, no matter how hard we try to bury them.

It’s not like I made up the insider trading. It happened. Anyone could have reported it.

No, but it wasn’t anyone, nina. It was you. You turned in the mother of sonny’s children to the authorities.

I-I turned in amelia and wiley’s grandmother in to the authorities. What will happen if willow finds out? She’s depended on carly so much through all of this. She’ll never forgive me, ava.

Willow, I give you this ring as a sign of our love for and commitment to each other. And I promise to support you, to care for you, and stand alongside you for all of our days.

Michael. I give you this ring as a sign of our love for and commitment to each other. I promise to support you, care for you, and stand alongside you for all of our days.

Well, I don’t think there’s anything left to say except, by the power vested in me and the state of new york, I now pronounce you husband and wife.

Well, I’ll take it from here.



[Cheers and applause]

[“Wedding march” playing]

[Cheers and applause]

We did it.

We did it.

We did it!

Yes, we did, buddy. Here. Here.

I have never seen a more professional ringbearer. Have you?

No, I have not. It’s probably your calling.

What’s a calling?

It’s a purpose.

So mommy’s yours?

Yeah, she is.

[Doorbell rings]

That’s weird. Who’d be showing up now?

Oh, please. I’ll get it.

Oh, boy. Don’t tell me you’re bored already.

Who, me?

Maybe nothing will come of it. I mean, it was an anonymous tip to a bunch of bureaucrats.

Bureaucrats who live for this kind of stuff.

Could be months or years before they open an investigation, assuming they get that far.

I don’t know. I don’t know much about this stuff. But I doubt the government takes kindly to citizens messing with the markets. If I had to guess, I’d say it won’t be long before the sec is knocking on carly’s door.

Okay, everybody to the solarium for the reception.

[Indistinct chatter]

Who’s this?

I tried to put them off, but they insisted. They are from the sec.

Look, if this is about elq, it’s gonna have to wait, okay?

It’s my son’s wedding.

It does concern elq, but we’re not looking for you.

Well, can you tell us who you are looking for?

Drew cain and carly spencer.

All bugging me fully paid my rent.

Hmm. It’s Brady who’s almost here. So he is gotta talk to me about something. Okay. I’ll just let you two co-conspirators talk then. Wait, you said you just wondered who doctored those biscuits instead of Chanel? We would do something like that. Oh God. I mean, I have a lot of enemies in this town. I should probably hire a private investigator or throw a monkey wrench into the police investigation.

Yeah. Well, how are you gonna do that? If I knew that I would already be doing it. Hmm.

Brady. Oh hey, I’m sorry. I didn’t know you were busy. No, it’s fine. I was actually, I’m just leaving. Don’t you worry. I’ll figure everything out. I always do. Okay.

What’s up? Oh, two’s still a thing, huh? Yes. We’re still a thing. Why? Mm. Ah, no offense. Just, um, Doesn’t everybody hate her?

Mm-hmm. Best chocolate brownie on the planet. Try a free sample. You’ll think you, you’re in heaven. It’s no use mama. People are so scared of what we bake. I couldn’t even pay someone to try one. Ooh, Chanel Dupree. Don’t you even think of giving up? Yeah. We’ll tell that to Sloane Peterson. She lost two court cases and that hasn’t slown her down, and so she can’t get me put in jail.

Then she’s trying to run my business to the ground. I told you we won’t let that happen. Now let’s just go home and come up with a plan because long you stay here, you just keep getting upset. I can’t leave. I have to stay here, close up and just get everything ready for tomorrow. If there is a tomorrow, oh, well, well, well, let me help you.

No, no, it’s, it’s fine. I, I, I wanna do it myself. I, I need to just clear my head and I, and I need some alone time and that’s why I sent Talia home. Oh, well, okay. Okay. You’re the boss. Okay. Oh, alright. I’ll see you later then. Okay, good. See you then. Mm-hmm. And thank you mama. We’re trying to help. Oh, you know, you know I’m there for you, baby girl, always.

What do you mean? Talia told me wasn’t true. You saying she lied to me? No, I’m not saying she lied. That would be assuming too much. It, it’s just, it’s just what? There’s this one thing, something she said that doesn’t line up with what really happened and it’s obviously really bothering you. You need to tell me what it is, Jada.


God, tell ya, you won’t believe how much I missed you. I missed you too, and I’m sorry I’m late. The police want to talk to Megan. What for?

It’s not suspicious of anything, are they? No, no, no, no. Chanel was there too. They just wanted the firm of the timeline for when the biscuits got doctored. That’s all.

Hey, don’t worry. Okay. They have no idea that you are the one that put me up to it.

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Okay, so going after Chanel and her bakery was my idea. For saying that I put you up to it. That’s kind of harsh. Don’t you think? I mean, are we not in this together? Yeah. No, we are definitely, I agree to do this. It’s, it’s just, it’s a little hard seeing I’m the only one out there and you just have to lay low.

Yeah. Yeah. Well, it is hard on this end too. My mother was the one that Chanel pushed off that roof. I know that. And you think that I like sending you out to do my work for me? No, I, I don’t think that at all. Look, I’m sorry. Okay. I, I should have never said that. You put me up to it. I wanted to help you and I still do, and I’m so grateful.

I know how much I’ve asked of you, and I know how much you’ve done for me.

And there’s that worry. Look again. Where’s it now? I don’t know it. It’s just what? Just say it. Look, it’s not just about me, Colin. The police are looking really hard into Sloan. She’s their number one suspect and she has no idea that her own brother is behind what happened.

Yes, it’s true. A lot of people do hate Sloan, but I’m not one of them. In fact, she and I decided to take our relationship to the next level. Hey, congratulations to you. You’re giving me your blessing. Yeah, no judgments. All right. I’ve just heard the rumors that Sloan is the one who tempered with the biscuits.

That’s exactly what they are. Brady rumors, I mean, take that from somebody who was a victim. Really, really. I know. I, I assume you’re okay now. It’s all right. It’s okay. I’m fine. What the hell was that like? Hard to remember. I don’t like to talk about it, but look at first, the first thing I was thinking that yes, I thought it was Sloan who tampered with the dough.

All right. But I am her alibi is all the reason why. I know she had nothing to do with it. All right, good, good. You know what, I’m just looking out for you, right? And I know you too, Brady. I know you’re not here to talk to me about Sloan. No, I’m not here to talk about Sloan. I’m here to talk about Chloe and how to keep that bastard Xander away from her.

All right. You can turn around now. Uh, I’m sorry, I, I should have called first. Oh no, actually is kind of unexpected, but I do have a small window of time. My zoom call with Jeff Bezos got pushed back. Oh, wow. Well, when you do speak to Jeff, give him my love. Of course. Um, so, uh, I, I wanted to give you, This, uh, though I’m not really sure where to put it.

Oh. Um, how about here? Ah, why didn’t I think of that? What’s one? Well, I had a hard time finding a card that said I’m, I’m sorry. I almost killed you without Dart. Thank you very much. But I am healing up nicely. I’m happy to report. That’s good. So how often are you changing that bandage? You’re supposed to change it.

Only if you don’t want it to get infected. Uh, okay. Not sit down. I’ll, I’ll do it. Really? Yeah. Well, it’s the least I can do after you save me from almost eating that drugged up skit. All right. Sorry if this hurts. Oh my goodness. Look at that thing. Oh, you’re such a man. Oh, I never had any complaints on that score before.

And promise me that you will change this regularly. Okay? Like every day, price, every day. I won’t able to do it as well as you. You’re regular Florence Nighting, aren’t you? Mm. Thanks. And you are not. A regular Mr. Clean. Ah, yeah. Sorry about that. I mean, if it’s the clothes on the floor you find offensive, you should know that they’re, they’re not all dirty.

Some of them I just haven’t folded yet. Ah, to be honest, Chloe, I’m starting to feel that this place is a bit of, uh, uh, pet not indicative of my current financial status. You know, I was busted when I moved in here. I’ve be saving up some money and I think I’m ready to finally start looking for a new place.

Mm. You and me both. You need someplace new. Yeah. Like yesterday,

every time I see Chloe Xander’s there just hovering, hanging around, playing darts with her, whatever, he’s obviously gunning for her, and the thing is, Chloe’s been hurt recently with some of the things that I’ve said. Happened to walk that tight rope with Rachel. She, she, she may be open to him. Does anything happen yet?

Nothing that I know of. Okay. Then take my advice. Don’t get all worked up for no good reason. All they could be doing is hanging out and throwing guards. Just like you said, you know Chloe, she’s smart and she’s gonna see right through Xander’s Act. See, that’s it. Nicole is a smart cookie as well, and she didn’t exactly see through Zander, Zach either, did she?

I guess you have a good point. Look, it’s nice of you worrying about my sister, but we knew going into this that the cops would suspect her. And I damn sure didn’t want them worrying about you, especially since you’ve put so much on the line.

Your lawyer may have pulled a rabbit out of her hat. But you are not off the hook. You listened to me, Sloan Peterson. You have lost and you will keep on losing and losing. So how about you’ll find something better to do with your time than trying to hurt me and my family trying to drag us to court to satisfy your sick need for revenge.

When my daughter and I, we have done nothing wrong. Do you hear me?

There is definitely no evidence tying someone to that. No Paulina’s office being trashed, right? Because thanks to you getting those keys, there was no forced entry and they can’t know anything else we did on Sloan either because she’s innocent. More importantly, she’s a damn good lawyer. She’s never gonna let them railroad her.

Yeah, but Colin, don’t you think we should probably tell her what we’ve been doing? No. No. That would make her an accessory yet. Plus she would never go for something like this. After she wasn’t able to nail Chanel and her mother in court, she had to pump the brakes. She would never risk a law license doing something illegal, which is when I had to step in.

Change the game. We need help. Of course,

Talia told you that she went straight home after dinner at Chanel’s Place the night before all this went down. Right? I remember, but I was there Rafe, she didn’t, she didn’t come home until hours later. You sure? She would be pretty hard to miss? I mean, we can’t even turn around that place without bumping into each other.

No. I mean, how do you know that it was the same night? Because I vividly remember it. It was when it was when you and I admitted that we have feelings for each other.


Hey, Chanel, Alex. Hi. Hi. Did I read right? You’re engaged to Johnny Damara? Let me guess, lady Whistleblower. I was an spectator today. Is that not true? What is true is that Johnny and I both had my biscuits, which turned out to be tainted with hallucinogens and I told Leo owe that and not to make anything of it, but we all know to him the truth is just an irrelevant detail.

Right. So the creep does what he usually does and wrote whatever he thinks is gonna sell papers. Yeah. To the moron to actually read that crap. Oh, sorry, my, that didn’t come out the way I meant it. Nah, I think it did. Look, I know you’re still pissed off at me about everything that happened with Allie. Okay.

Another topic I don’t wanna talk about. Regardless, this whole thing, the drugging of the biscuits, it’s ridiculous and I truly feel for you, and I can only imagine what it’s doing to your business. No, it’s killing it. Which is exactly why your little girlfriend Sloan did it. Well, it’s not my girlfriend’s.

I mean, yeah, we hooked up, but that was over a long time ago. Well, maybe it shouldn’t be. What do you mean? Well, if you’re really sorry about what happened with Allie, make it up to me. Get SW back in your bed.

You want me to get Sloan back in my bed, boy, because you can sweet talk her like crazy and then screw a confession out of her.

Are you kidding me? Look, look, the, the cops keep saying that they don’t have any proof to prove that Sloane is the one that’s doing everything to me and my mom, even though it’s beyond obvious that it’s her and that doesn’t tell you anything. What it tells me is that someone outside of the PD needs to talk to her and that someone is you.

Look, all you gotta do is call her up, tell her how much you miss her, and then show her a good time. Ah, and then you can just steer, you know the pillow. Talk to biscuit though. And psychedelics. Hey. Yeah, look, Chanal, I mean this in the nicest way possible, but are you sure you’re not under the influence of some drug biscuits and psychedelics?

I feel for you. I really do. But you gotta forget about it because I’m not doing it. Oh, come on, Alex. Why not? It’s not like this is outta character for you. Oh, okay. Well, Aside from my general misgivings about this, I’m sort of hooking up with somebody else now. So when has that ever stopped? You just make it a threesome.

Y’all know you have experience with that. Ha on please, Alex. I would forgive you for everything that happened in the past. If you will, please just do whatever it takes to get me what I need to, to just to stop this nightmare with Sloan.

Connie. Everything’s gonna be okay. Trust me, you hold it right there. Shady missile toe. Uh, it’s lady whistleblower and I will not hold it right here or anywhere for the likes of you. You are such a bottom feeding hack, you know that. Oh, come on counselor. You can’t still be upset about that one little article I wrote about you ages ago.

Oh, you mean the one where you called me a psycho and, uh, accused me of going after Paulina Price? No. Shrugged it right off. Of course, I’m still mad at you. Well, first off, I’m not a hack. And second, the bottom happens to be where the good stuff is. Oh, I’m well aware. That’s why I stopped you just now, huh?

Mm. I figured you’d want some dirt for your next column. What kind of dirt? The police commissioner and his favorite new detective. Trust me, it practically writes itself. You forgot it was the same night. Hmm. Jose, we opened up to each other about our feelings. Yeah, I, I did. Right. Well, anyway, um, it was really awkward here, so I went straight home.

You know, the next day you were drugged from those biscuits. Yeah. Sorry, again about my behavior. It’s, it’s fine. Um, anyway, um, The point is I remember exactly what time it was, and I know for a fact that my sister did not come straight home from Paulina prices that night. Okay. Well, obviously you’re convinced that Talia isn’t telling us the truth, so what do you wanna do about it?

I don’t know, like getting involved in everything. It’s kind of the last thing I expected moving to New York. Right. But when we met, there was an immediate connection. At least for me anyway, um, I think putting my medical career on hold kind of proves that I felt it too. I’m gonna make this up to you, Talia.

I swear. Don’t worry, no one’s suspicious.

Who is it? It’s my sister.

I don’t know why she would be calling. I literally just left her. Let her go to voicemail. Maybe she’ll leave a message. No, I always answer her phone calls.

Hello? There you are. I was wondering why you weren’t picking up. Oh, sorry, my phone was buried in my bag. What’s up? Remember when we said we might need to clear some things up? After your interview, you wanna clear some things up? It just a small point. Something you said to the commissioner. Something I told the commissioner wasn’t clear.

It’s about when you got home the night before, uh, the issue with the biscuits and after you had dinner at Chanel’s. You said you went straight home, but I was home after dinnertime. And you weren’t? Yeah, right. Um, I had a headache and um, I went to the drugstore and I got aspirin, but that couldn’t have taken that long.

You’re right. Sorry, I must have forgotten. Um, I was late because I took a walk to the lake. I thought that the night air might help my headache. Well, I guess it did because when you got home, you didn’t mention it. All I wanted to do by then was just to go to sleep. Anything else? I think that’s about it.

Great. Talk to you later. Right on. I’m not so sure

something wrong. You could say that

the commissioner. Commissioner Hernandez, Mr. Straighten arrow, accent on the strait. Sadly, the very one, forget it. People read my column for dirt on people like you not Captain America. Oh, I mean, You don’t think that they would wanna read on Captain America as you put it? Hi on drugs and macing on his lead.

Detective, please tell me it is Detective Sean Brady. No, it was Jada Hunter. Ah, boring. Who cares about a little tongue between coworkers. That tongue flies right in face of Mayor Carver’s new fraternization policy. I thought that just meant they couldn’t be in the Elks or Shriners or something. What it means is that you could launch a campaign to get Mayor Carver to have to enforce his own policy against one of his greatest political allies and a close friend.

You could blow up the Mayor’s office and the Salem pd. I’d be like, Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford put together. You’d be a real force in Salem. One to be reckoned with, feared, and you’d get exactly what you wanted. The two cops who were on your ass would be out on theirs perhaps. But most importantly, I just think everybody should know the truth, don’t you?

The thing is, when Nicole succumbeded to Xander’s Charmer, whatever you want to call it, she was settled with an arrogant. Self-absorbed neglectful husband. That would be, that would be me.

I don’t know. I think my situation with Chloe and me is a lot more like yours in Napoles than you think. More than I’d like to think. Meaning you call yourself a neglectful husband. I haven’t exactly been the best boyfriend either. Alright. Kristen and Rachel have been treating. Chloe liked dirt while I’ve just pretty much been sitting back and saying, Hey, Chloe, you’re gonna have to deal with it.

You know, why don’t just play this my way? Hey, let me tell you something. I wish somebody would’ve told me, forget Sandra, he’s not the problem. He’s a. Here’s a symptom. Yeah, I’m the problem.

Oh God. Dunno why you’re slow. You eager to move. I mean, Salem end’s great. Yeah, it’s a little too great, especially when the bill arrives and I’m outta work and I’m just, I’m running through my savings. But it’s more than that. I, so, Well, it’s an in, it’s a place you stay when you’re on your way somewhere else.

But I’m not going anywhere and I’m not going anywhere with Brady, certainly not with Rachel. I don’t have a job. I don’t have a life, and I just, I want something someplace. It’s yours. Yeah. But not that I can afford it, and to be honest, I’m, I’m just worried that I’m gonna end up in a place like this. So you need a place that’s a step down from where you live, and I need to step up and why don’t you take that step together.

You mean we can find a place together? Oh, Xander, that sounds horrifying. You know, I actually thought you’d sparked the idea. Okay. Well, you’ve just recently been nice to me and. Since I did dart you, I’m not gonna dwell on the fact that this place is a pigsty, but I’m gonna point out the obvious, which is you own a newspaper and I am basically broke.

So you wouldn’t wanna live in a place where I can afford half the rent. We wouldn’t, we wouldn’t split rent. We, I know you don’t have a job, so just make wherever we find look like I don’t live there, and we’ll call that REM for the time being. Oh. Sounds like you need a housekeeper, not a roommate, Chloe.

Um, look, one of the most irritating things about becoming your friend and getting to really like you, is I want to atone for what I did to you and a bunch of other people. So in that sense, you’d actually be doing me a favor if you allowed me to give a ma helping hand when she’s, as you say, Basically broke.

That’s Hannah. That’s it’s very sweet. I swear it’d be totally, completely platonic and, and this is very hard for me to say, but I will be neater, not just neater. How about cleaner? So we are now officially in negotiation.

You’re in sex. Therapy with allie’s. Grandma, it’s not sex therapy, it’s therapy. It’s not funny. All right. It’s a little bit funny. All right. Okay. And I know you got a million things you can throw on my face right now, and I’m sure it looks utterly ridiculous. Me telling you, no, you can’t ask me to use sex for nefarious purpose.

Well, we both know it wouldn’t be the first time. No, it would not here. You’re serious about this, aren’t you? Yeah, I am. After I started speaking to Dr. Evans, she’s starting to make me realize that, uh, I’m pretty screwed up and Chanel, as much as I would love to help you throw Sloan back in her cage, please do not ask me to sleep with her.

Or I’m gonna end up right back where I started.

Honey, you look so glm. Come on Talia. We were a great team. We totally dodged a bullet. No we didn’t. What do you mean? We were completely in sync? I was all like, and you said, oh, I just had to take a walk around the lake. What you said you were reading my mind. No, it was more like Jada was reading mine. My sister knows me, like the back of a book, Colin.

I don’t just forget things. I don’t get through med school by forgetting. What are you saying? I’m saying that my alibi that night can’t be, I just forgot that won’t fly. Especially since I came up with it after the fact. Then why didn’t you account for it in the first place?

I am sorry. Okay. I guess I just, just wasn’t thinking. Yeah. Yeah, you weren’t thinking, look, it’s just that they separated me and Chanel and I didn’t know what they were saying to her, what she said. And then I was dealing with the commissioner. Babe. Let’s just, my, my charm just didn’t work on him. Okay. No, no.

I, I get it. It’s just, this is really important to me cuz that bitch killed my mother. You, you do get that right? Uh, I thought so before I got here. But now, but now what? I don’t know Colin. I’m just confused. Okay. Cuz I actually know Paulina and Chanel now and hey, they seem like really nice people. They seem nice.

Talia, do you not know an act when you see one? I don’t think it was just an act. Okay. I, Chanel told me about everything that happened in London unless she told you. If she pushed my mother off a roof, then she did not tell you everything unless she told you that her rich mommy flew to London and paid for everything to be covered up.

Then she did not tell you everything.

I’m sorry. I I, I just, I get so worked up. This is obviously so triggering for me. Yeah, this is extremely. Important. Look, I know that. Okay. I do. I promise. I just need to ask you one thing. Yeah. Are you still on my side?

Jada was bothering him. This is vague, but it didn’t feel like I was talking to my sister. Alright, what can you figure out why Talia’s always a stream of consciousness all over the map, but there is these hesitations when she was answering my questions. Maybe she was just trying to remember. No, no.

Talia’s memory is scary. She remembers what she did for her 12th birthday party, but, but now she forgets that she had a headache and then she forgot that she walked around the lake. Wait, she said that? Yeah. Yeah. And she’s also the one who forgot to set the security systems. All this from someone who never forgets a thing.

All right, Jada, if this is too much, I can put you on another case. The department cannot ask, you cannot ask any officer to investigate their own. No, no. Thanks for the golfer, but it’s too late to back off now.

You need to have a little bit more faith in Chloe Xander. Yeah, he may be making a play for her, but she more than most knows exactly what he is capable of. You’re right. No, you’re right. After what that jerk put her through, I can’t imagine she would involve herself with him and she knows what he, what he did to Nicole and how much Nicole regretted getting involved with him.

Exactly. And Chloe’s not gonna let. Xander entered her life in any meaningful way. Yeah. No, you’re right. Whatever they, they hang out. They play darts. It’s not like they’re moving in together. Right.

Well, this place looks pretty promising, doesn’t it? Nice fuse. Plenty of immunities. I mean, it couldn’t do any harm to go look at it, right? I guess not. Let’s do those future room, lets find a place and move in together.

No more jokes about it, I promise. And for what it’s worth, I think it’s, you know, uh, brave they are going to therapy. I agree. Although I’m not really sure I wanna know. Who I really am

enough about me. You’re going through hell right now. Is there, like, how about I float you along? Something to just keep the business going until everything gets, you know, blown over. That is, that is very, very sweet of you. But I, I can get a loan from my mom and besides all the money in the world, can’t buy me back my customers.

But you know, as, as much as all this sucks on the bright side. You offer me a loan, which is like, so generous. And then my new employee, I, I told her that I couldn’t afford to pay her. And you know what she said? Hmm? She said that she would work for free. Wow. That’s amazing. She’s amazing. And you know, she’s, she’s only worked here for a short time, but it’s just like, like this whole thing has hit her just as hard as it’s hit me.

You can’t let Chanel and her mom get into your head. Okay. And babe, we have nothing to feel guilty about with a good gas here. Yeah, but maybe we should just back off a bit, you know? Give things time to just go away. No, we can’t do that. Have to keep, apply pressure. You just have to be really careful of what you say to your sister.

Yeah, yeah, of course. Bye. I should get going.

I need you. I can’t do any of this without you now. I love you, right?

I love you too. Here’s my girl.

Oh, hey, uh, you work at sleeps, right? I met you the other day, Talia. Yeah, that’s, that’s me. Hmm. Sweetness. Are you the one that sold her a tainted biscuit? I did, and I’m sorry. I’m really, I’m really sorry. Was that really necessary? I didn’t even eat the biscuit. That poor girl just works there. It’s not like it’s her fault.

I just keep thinking. My sister gets out of medical school, becomes a baker’s assistant in Salem. And as a doctor, she would have access to the drugs that were put in that dough. Okay, but why? Hm. She didn’t even know Chanel until she got here. They seemed to get along and well, she sure doesn’t seem like a disgruntled employee.

Yeah, she always told me that she loved that job. Okay, so what’s her motive? Hmm? Why would she decide to drug half the town? You know, you’re right. You’re right. It, it makes no sense. It has to be someone else, someone with a real motive. Which brings us back to Sloan Peterson. So the cops are all over you because of the sweet bit’s druggie incident.

Yeah. Especially because of the way you went after Paulina Price. Hmm. Look, I couldn’t break into Paulina’s office and I didn’t drug those bloody biscuits. And yet what better way to get the commissioner and his lead detective off your ass by getting them thrown off the force. Look, I saw those two with my own two eyes.

All you have to do is keep my name out of it and quote, anonymous source. You really think a column by me is gonna be enough to throw the investigation off track? Let’s find out, shall we?

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Summer: Is this for real? Mom, are you real?

Phyllis: I’m real. I’m so sorry.

[ Summer crying ]

Summer: I don’t under– I don’t understand. Wha– what’ happening? What’s happening?

Audra: I’ll confirm the venue for the meeting next month with the vendors. Anything else I should be aware of?

Nate: I’ll be heading to L.A. For a few days. I need you to run point for me.

Audra: Vacation?

Nate: Not this time. There are some streaming platforms out west newman’s looking to acquire. If all goes well, they’ll be folded into newman media. I believe in-person meetings are key to a successful negotiation.

Audra: Sounds brilliant.

Nate: New challenge. I’m looking forward to it.

Audra: Well, I’m pleased you trust me enough to leave me in charge.

Nate: Well, that goes without saying.

Audra: Given the choice, though, um, I’d rather accompany you. You know, this could be a learning opportunity for me.

[ Nate chuckling ]

Nate: I appreciate your enthusiasm, audra, but I need you here, holding down the fort.

Audra: Look, I’m sure victoria would be okay with it. This trip could be a valuable experience.

Nate: I think it’s great you want to master every aspect of the job. Really, I do. But the thing is, I’ll be doing that myself. Acting as second under victoria. She’ll be traveling with me.

Nick: Just wait ’til you hear dad’s latest move.

Victoria: If it’s about him finalizing his deal with tucker so adam can have a new toy to break, I already know.

Nick: Close. The two are related.

Victoria: Okay, I give up. What has dad done now?

Nick: He wants me to take an immediate leave of absence as coo.

Victoria: Excuse me?

[ Victoria scoffing ] Why would he even suggest something like that? I need you here.

[ Nick sighing ]

Nick: He wants me to run mccall unlimited with adam or whatever it is they plan on calling it. But he seems to think the company needs me to get it back on its feet.

Victoria: This is what he meant when he warned me that I would regret not buying mccall.

[ Sighing ] He wants to steal my entire team right out from underneath me.

Michael: Hey. Thanks for meeting me here so quickly. Sit, sit, sit.

Jack: No thanks needed. I know you just came from seeing diane. Hopefully, you have some good news for me.

Michael: Well, I have news. I’m afraid it’s not good.

Jack: Okay, I’m listening.

Michael: I have a contact in the coroner’s office in the jurisdiction near pheasant lake.

Jack: Where they found stark’s body.

Michael: Um, off the record, she has agreed to share his presumed manner of death.

Jack: So suicide? Accidental drowning? Have they done a toxicology screening?

Michael: Jack, they’re doing an autopsy. Until it’s finished, none of these findings are conclusive. But according to my source, it appears to be a homicide.

Phyllis: Hey, baby. I know it’s a shock. I know it’s a shock.

Summer: I got– I got this call from somebody offering to explain what happened to my mom. But I didn’t know that it was you. It didn’t sound like you.

Phyllis: I was in a coffee shop, and I– I gave the waitress some money. She’s the one who called you. That was the only way I could know that you would get here alone.

Summer: Oh, my god. Daniel, he was just–

Phyllis: No, no, no. We’re not calling da– shh, shh. We’re not calling daniel. You’re the only one who can know I’m alive.

Summer: Not even daniel?

Phyllis: No, not even daniel. I can’t trust him.

Summer: What? What do you mean?

Phyllis: It’s not that he’s not trustworthy. Listen, baby, he’s going through so much right now and he might want to do the right thing, you know what I mean? And tell people about my secret.

Summer: No. Daniel is going through hell right now, mom.

Phyllis: Summer, listen to me. You’re the only one who can know that I’m alive. I mean it. You’re the only one I can trust. You’re the only one who can know what happened. And what I need to do because of it from this moment forward.

Additional sponsorship provided by…

Summer: I don’t understand. You can come home now. What else needs to happen?

Phyllis: Oh, summer, there’s so much I need to explain to you.

Summer: No, mom, you need to listen to me. Whatever this is, this– this stunt that you pulled. You’ve hurt so many people. And daniel and I have been devastated, but we need you. So whatever you did, it doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter to me. And it’s not going to matter to anyone who loves you.

Phyllis: [ Laughing ] Summer, um–

Summer: No! The only thing that matters, mom, is that you’re alive. You’re alive! And you’re– and you’re going to come home with me.

[ Phyllis sniffling ]

Audra: I had no idea. You know, I see you as such a pro, I forget you’re on a learning curve, too. Maybe I can tag along on the next trip.

Nate: Thanks for understanding.

Audra: I’ll hold the ship afloat while you’re gone.

Nate: I appreciate that, audra.

Audra: Oh, you know, I wonder if elena might be able to join you, you know, since she couldn’t make it last time. I bet she will love to go.

Nick: I hadn’t thought about inviting elena. I wouldn’t want to seem unprofessional by asking if my girlfriend could tag along.

Audra: Oh, um, I’m sorry. I might have misunderstood. I just thought that you invited her last time you were traveling on business.

Nick: I did. Good thing she couldn’t make it because it was nonstop work. She would have been bored stiff.

Jack: Homicide?

Michael: Apparently.

Jack: How is that– how can they know for sure?

Michael: No longer being the D.A., I can only get so much information. My source was taking a risk by telling me as much as she did.

Jack: Wow. There’s a lot to wrap my head around.

Michael: Yeah, join the club.

Jack: If they think it’s murder, there’s going to be a full out investigation, right?

Michael: By the local sheriff’s department? Yes. Since the lake itself is in an unincorporated area.

Jack do the authorities have any leads? Can they tie phyllis’ murder to stark’s death in any way?

Michael: You know as much as I do, and I don’t have a whole lot to go on, jack. But what I do know, what I do know, in terms of diane’s defense, this is a double edged sword.

Jack: That makes no sense. I would think stark’s death would indicate there was much more at play. Especially if he’s murdered.

Michael: All right, listen–

Jack: Diane is out of commission. I mean, unless somebody thinks she’s a mob boss who can call a hit inside prison and have it carried out while she’s in there. No. Basic– basic intelligence would tell you she’s not involved in that. She didn’t kill stark, she didn’t kill phyllis. And this latest development–

Michael: Jack! Jack, until I learned more about stark’s murder, I don’t know what any of this means.

Jack: At least we know this guy can’t testify against her in court.

Michael: True. However, he also can’t exonerate her. We used to struggle with greasy messes.

Nick: Dad actually warned you about mccall and what would happen if you didn’t acquire it?

Victoria: It wasn’t so much a warning as an I told you so. Just tell me, please, that you turned down his offer.

Nick: Vic, come on. There’s no way I’m bailing on you to go and babysit adam. I’m pretty sure mom’s not going anywhere either.

Victoria: Can you imagine our mother and adam running a company together? That’ll be the day. So what else did dad have to share? Any other suggestions that I should know about?

Nick: Uh, didn’t learn much, except that mccall seems to be in shambles, and… he thinks adam’s going to need the full support of the family to write the ship.

Victoria: He’s gonna need a lot more than that.

Nick: I actually think this was just some play to get me and adam to back away from sally.

Victoria: Yes, that seems about right.

Nick: Once I realized what he was up to, I rejected his offer and walked out.

Victoria: You know, leave it to our father to buy an entire conglomerate so he can try to manipulate all the people around him.

Nick: He doesn’t seem to know when he needs to let people manage their own lives. And with a baby on the way, it’s just going to get worse. He can’t see it. I mean, the more he pushes sally away, the more he risks being shut out of his granddaughter’s life.

Phyllis: Listen to me. Okayyou need to listen to me. I wish I could come home… but unfortunately, it can’t happen.

Summer: Why? None of this makes any sense.

[ Phyllis sighing ]

Phyllis: I made some mistakes. [ Sighing ] I did some stupid things. I trusted the wrong man.

Summer: Stark?

Phyllis: Yeah.

Summer: Tell me what happened.

Phyllis: He manipulated me, you know? Um… he played on my deepest, darkest fears, you know? And he convinced me to marry him and then we had this plan to take diane down and put her in prison for the rest of her life.

Summer: Mom… what have you done?

Phyllis: I don’t know. I’m just being honest with you. I’m just being honest, summer.

Summer: How did you think that it was gonna–

Phyllis: I wasn’t thinking. I was out of my mind. I wasn’t thinking. Then, when I finally came to my senses… and I told him I didn’t want to go forward with the plan anymore, he threatened me. He was gonna kill me.

Jack: The more I think about it, the more I believe that stark’s death proves diane didn’t kill phyllis.

Michael: I don’t understand your logic, jack. Yeah, I agree that diane being in jail rules her out as a suspect in stark’s murder, but how? How does that absolve her of phyllis’s death?

Jack: To me, it’s obvious. Phyllis is poisoned. Days later, stark is murdered. That’s just a coincidence? Come on, one person could have killed both of them.

Michael: There’s no evidence to suggest that.

Jack: Yet. And maybe there never will be any. But think about it. Stark is a known criminal, out on parole, involved in fraud and money laundering and god knows what else on an international scale. He’s been hanging out with some very dangerous people who are experts at hiding evidence. Maybe he crossed one of them. His past caught up with him and phyllis. I’m steve, I lost 138 pounds in nine months on golo

Michael: I get why stark would be the target of a killer, but why phyllis?

Jack: I don’t know. Diane was never certain where stark got the funding to carry out his schemes. Whoever he was dealing with back then maybe felt shorted when he went to prison and they wanted their money back. And maybe that was the money that he was pressuring diane for.

Michael: If that were the case, why wouldn’t stark have taken the money you offered him initially?

Jack: No, that was a direct response to diane. A not-so-veiled threat that this is about more than just money.

Michael: Even if your theory were correct, despite the lack of evidence, it only accounts for a hit on stark. Again, why phyllis?

Jack: She was his new wife. Whoever these people are came to town knowing that his former partner in crime lived in genoa city. Maybe they thought that was phyllis.

Michael: It was diane.

Jack: Well, we know that. They thought they were looking for taylor jensen. Any woman in town could have been taylor jensen. Maybe phyllis’s murder is a case of mistaken identity. Maybe she’s just collateral damage.

Michael: Jack, I know you’re looking for an answer, but that is not it. There is a mountain of evidence that exists, and it points to a premeditated crime perpetrated by diane.

Jack: I will do anything I can to get justice for phyllis. I feel she deserves at least that from me. Diane didn’t do this. I have to defend her.

Michael: Okay, jack, the two of us are committed to the same two causes. Justice for phyllis and diane. But right now, we only know one thing. Diane is the only suspect in phyllis’s murder that is still alive to talk about it.

Nate: Hi.

Elena: Hey. Your message said you have some news. What’s up?

Nate: I have to go home and pack.

Elena: Okay. Why? I’m heading to L.A. For work.

Elena: For how long?

Nate: Just a few days. But when I get back, I would love to go somewhere with you. A short vacation, you know? One week, just the two of us. Where would you like to go?

Elena: Okay, wait, back up. So, you’re going away on business?

Nate: Wall to wall meetings out west with some streamers we’d like to acquire. But I realize what I really want to do right now is get away with you somewhere. You know? No work involved.

Elena: I see.

Nate: We’ve been kicking it around for quite a while now. Why not make it happen?

Elena: We can discuss it. But who is we?

Nate: What do you mean?

Elena: Well, you just said that there are some streamers on the west coast that we would like to acquire, so I’m wondering, are you going alone or are you going with someone else?

Victoria: You know, it makes no difference what you and sally think. Once that baby arrives, there’s no way in hell that you’re gonna be able to keep it away from dad. Not to mention, this is not your fight. Sally and adam are the parents, so really, it’s up to them.

Nick: Thank you for the reminder.

Victoria: It’s the truth, nick. Hey, um, I’m gonna be going to los angeles for a couple of days, and I need you to take the reins. I hope that’s not too much to ask.

Nick: Sure. Mom going with you?

Victoria: No, she’ll be here.

Nick: Well, she’s the co-ceo. Shouldn’t she be in charge?

Victoria: Look, we both know how much she loves seeing you in more of a leadership role. So the job is yours for a couple of days. Deal with it.

[ Nick chuckling ]

Nick: Okay. Um… you going alone?

Victoria: No. Did you have a chance to look over those p&l reports that I sent you?

Nick: Hold up. If mom’s not going out of town, who are you going with? Don’t tell me–

Victoria: I know what I’m doing, nick. Leave it alone.

Summer: Why didn’t you come to me before? Why didn’t you tell me that stark was making threats? Jack got all this extra security for us. He could have had you covered, too.

Phyllis: Jack wouldn’t have lifted a finger for me. And then, you and daniel… I thought you hated me. I thought everyone hated me.

[ Summer sighing ] And that prompted me to do something really… stupid and idiotic, you know?

Summer: Mom, daniel and I, we never hated you. Yes, we disagreed with you, but, mom, we love you. We’ve been wrecks since that night.

Phyllis: I know. I know. I’ve been watching you. I saw how much pain you were in. I’m so sorry. [ Sobbing ] That’s why I needed to meet with you. I wanted you to know that I am okay. I couldn’t go through with it. And listen, I understand. I really understand if you and your brother hate me and never want to forgive me.

Summer: No, no. Those days are over, mom. That’s not gonna happen. We are on your side, no matter what.

[ Phyllis sighing ]

Phyllis: Summer… when you find out what I did… I don’t think you’re gonna feel that way. I don’t think you’re gonna be on my side.

Summer: Mom… how guilty are you? Welcome to my digestive system.

“The young and the restless” will continue.

Nick: You telling me to leave it alone makes me ten times more concerned.

Victoria: Okay, let me make this easy for you. As ceo of newman media, nate will be accompanying me to los angeles. The meetings that we will be attending pertain to the various streaming platforms that we would like to acquire. While I could certainly handle them on my own, it makes sense that the head of newman media would be present, don’t you think?

Nick: I’m sure you know all of the reasons why this is a terrible idea.

Victoria: And I’m sure that you’re aware that I’m really not interested in your opinion.

Nate: So yeah, I’ll be on my own in california.

Elena: Sounds dull. Wish I could join you.

Nate: Too last minute, huh?

Elena: Yeah, but when you get back, I should be able to take some time off.

Nate: Great. Any thoughts on where you’d like to go?

Elena: No, but I’ll look into it while you’re away. Maybe something scenic, maybe something intimate. You have any preferences?

Nate: Surprise me. As long as I’m with you, I’ll be happy.

Elena: That’s really sweet of you.

Nate: Okay, let me get home and figure out what I’m packing.

Elena: Mm, I hear cali’s having a heat wave, so it should be pretty hot.

Nate: I will keep that in mind. Bye-bye.

Phyllis: Well, what I did, it’s not important. The important thing is that jeremy stark manipulated the whole situation to make it look like…

[ Sighing ] It was all me. If anybody found out about what we did, I would be the one who would be implicated.

Summer: So… none of it was real? The poison, the… the ambulance crash, it wasn’t–

Phyllis: No, it wasn’t real.

[ Summer sighing ]

Summer: So, if you’re alive, and all of that was fake… that means that diane’s innocent.

Phyllis: Diane’s innocent? There’s nothing innocent about diane. Everything diane touches dies. Everything. She lies, manipulates. She drives wedges between people. Good god, you know that now. Jack and ashley, me and jack, you and me, you and kyle. You’re either on diane’s side or you are her victim.

Summer: I know, I know. God. I know diane has been causing problems for me and kyle way before this.

Phyllis: And the worst thing she did, she let her son believe that she was dead for years and years. He’s still dealing with the aftermath of that.

Summer: You just did that exact thing. Mom, you faked your own death. You– you– you abandoned your children.

Phyllis: My children are adults. They’re not little kids. And I couldn’t go through with it. I’m here now. But diane let kyle believe that she was dead for years. I would never do that to a little child, who doesn’t understand death or loss.

Summer: God, just… I can’t believe that your priorities are so out of whack that you would let us all suffer like that. You would let the people who love you believe that you’re dead. No. Mom. You’re coming home with me, okay? You’re going to make things right with everyone in genoa city.

Phyllis: I can’t do that. You don’t know the whole story.

Summer: If it’s because of stark, if it’s because you’re afraid of him, you don’T… you don’t have to worry about that anymore. He’s dead, so he can’t hurt you. And everything else we can straighten out. I promise you that.

Phyllis: They found him. Oh, no, I thought I’d have more time.

Summer: Found him?

Phyllis: Jeremy stark is the reason I can’t return to genoa city. Because… I’m the reason he’s dead.

Jack: Hey, I’m sorry for coming by after visiting hours, but I pulled a few strings because this can’t wait.

Diane: Why are you here again?

Jack: I have news.

Diane: I told you I don’t want to see you. Nothing’s changed.

[ Sighing ] Why are you doing this to me?

Jack: I am here because I love you. Because we have spent too many years apart and I don’t want to spend another day without you. And I think the news I have might actually get you out of here.

Sometimes, the lows

of bipolar depression

Diane: I don’t want you here, jack. It’s not your choice. You don’t have a say. I’m the one in the cell. I’m the one who’s staring at these walls and I am telling you to stay away.

Jack: Once you hear what we’ve discovered–

Diane: You know what? I don’t care what it is. Michael can tell me.

[ Scoffing ] Don’t you get it? My life is over. There is nothing left to be done, and the sooner you accept that, the sooner we can all just move on.

Jack: Don’t do this. Don’t push away the people who love you. You can’t give up.

Diane: This is not about giving up. It’s about doing what’s best for my family and not subjecting you to the pain of my experiences. You all did just fine in the past without me being in your lives and you can do the same again. And that’s the way it has to be.

Summer: You didn’t– you didn’t kill jeremy stark.

Phyllis: I’m afraid I did.

Summer: Why? H– how?

Phyllis: You and daniel were in so much pain. I couldn’t go through with the plan. And then he told me if I pulled out of the plan and I sent him back to prison, well, he would never let that happen. And he said killing me was A… a victimless crime.

Summer: He said that to you?

Phyllis: Yeah, he did. He put his hands on me. And he said that I was his now.

Summer: Oh, my god, mom.

Phyllis: And the whole thing would cost me. And I tried to escape. And he stopped me. And he pushed me away. And he picked up scissors and he came toward me and he was gonna slice my throat. He was gonna kill me. Summer, I couldn’t let that happen. I couldn’t let it happen. I couldn’T. And he was strong, but I was desperate. I was desperate, and I took my nails and I put them into his face. And I took those scissors.

[ Gasping ] And it went black. I don’t even remember. I don’t even remember, but it went black. And I looked down and he was in a pool of blood. I killed him to protect myself.

[ Summer exhaling ] I didn’t want to die.

Summer: What– what– what did you do then?

Phyllis: I cleaned up the room and I wrapped him in the shower curtain. I made it look like one of his criminal buddies from prison did it.

Summer: Oh…

[ Phyllis gasping ] I sealed my fate. I can never go home. I have to come up with a plan to fix this.

Summer: No, mom, I’m not gonna let you think like that. It’s not too late. We can go to the police and we can make them understand what happened.

Phyllis: No. Shh. Shh. Stop it. That’s not gonna happen. Okay? You got it? That’s not gonna happen. You must never, ever tell a soul about this.

Nick: You may not want my opinion, but I’m gonna give it to you anyway.

Victoria: Of course you are.

Nick: This is a mistake. You taking nate on this trip with you, you can call it business all you want.

Victoria: Because it is.

Nick: Are we really gonna play this game? You’re obviously involved with this guy.

Victoria: I have known nate for a long time. We’re friends. We’re colleagues. That’s it.

Nick: Oh, come on, vic.

Victoria: Stay out of it, nick. It’s none of your business.

[ Nick scoffing ]

Nick: You know, we both know when you mix business with pleasure, you tend to, uh, throw judgment out the window.

Victoria: I can’t believe you went there. Nate is nothing like ashland. And by the way, you’ve been in the same exact position before, so don’t be such a hypocrite.

Nick: How long do you think it’s gonna be before people realize you’re having a fling with your subordinate?

Victoria: Well, I don’t know. How long before people noticed that you and sally were together? (Vo) red lobster’s finer points of fun dining:

Nick: There are some clear and obvious differences with you and nate and me and sally, but let’s just forget about that for a second. I’m sure you think you have control of this situation. I think you’re playing with fire. Everything is going great for you right now, vic, but you feel like you gotta take this big risk.

Victoria: Don’t be ridiculous.

Nick: He’s got a girlfriend. He’s got this whole life outside of newman media. I mean, what are you doing? Are you working towards a relationship with this guy, or are you just having fun?

Victoria: You know, nick, just as you asked me to respect your privacy with sally, I would ask you for the same courtesy.

Nick: I care about you, all right?

Victoria: I care about you, too, even when you’re a complete knucklehead.

Nick: Well, I can’t shake the feeling that you’re about to blow up everything that you’ve worked so hard for.

Victoria: Well, I’m sorry. You’ll have to excuse me if I don’t see it that way. So, are we finished? I have a lot I have to do before I go to los angeles.

Nick: Yeah, sure. Safe travels. Of course, I will look after everything while you’re gone.

Victoria: I appreciate that.

Nick: I really hope you don’t end up regretting this trip.

[ Victoria sighing ]

Elena: This is dr. Dawson.

Audra: Hey, it’s audra. Uh, where are you? Did I catch you at a bad time?

Elena: Oh, I’m just catching up on some cases, and apparently I have to go home and help nate pack for his trip to los angeles. You know, things are actually getting better between us.

Audra: Really?

Elena: Yeah. He’s been really sweet lately. Um, if you have time for coffee tomorrow, I can catch you up on it.

Audra: Can’t wait.

Jack: I know you have spent a lot of your adult life on your own. Living a secret life with no one you could trust, no one you could count on. Was just you against the world. I am offering you a way out of that, if you will let me. My purpose these days, my purpose in life, is to be the man you can depend on. To do everything in my power to see that you walk out of here a free woman and I am not staying away. I’m not. Not now, not ever. And not because you need me. Because I need you.

Diane: Jack…

Jack: Marry me.

Diane: What?

Jack: I’m serious. We’re already engaged. Let’s seal the deal. Let’s do it now, sooner rather than later, before the trial. I want to be your husband through every moment of this ordeal. But you have to trust me. Believe in me. Marry me.

Phyllis: Listen to me. If you tell anyone that I am alive, diane will get off. And I will pay and pay and pay. The authorities will hunt me down. They will not stop until they find me and I will spend the rest of my life in prison, or I’ll be looking over my shoulder. Is that what you want for me?

Summer: I don’t want to lie to the people that I love. But I don’t want to lose you, either. I can’T. I can’t lose you again. I don’t have the strength to do that. Mom, I need you.

Phyllis: I’m sorry, baby. I’m sorry I put this in your hands. I’m sorry I put you in this position. It’s not fair.

Summer: No, it’s not fair. I’m just scared. I’m scared that if you don’t come with me right now and clear all of this up, I’m just scared that I’m never gonna see you again.

Phyllis: Ah, no, no. I don’t intend for that to happen. That will never happen, okay? All right? Hey, listen to me. It all boils down to this, okay? You either save your mother-in-law… or you save me. All right? Because if I reveal myself, diane will be exonerated and my life will be over. Or… you give me time to come up with a plan that works. Summer, all I need is time. I just need time, okay? Can you do that? Listen. Whatever you decide… I love you, supergirl. All right? Whatever you decide, I love you. I’ll never stop loving you. ‘Kay? I have to go.

Steffy: Amelia has the kids. Oh, we could go back to bed. Pick up where we left off.

Finn: Mm… I would love that more than you know. But my mom’s coming over.

Steffy: Yeah. Unless I call and reschedule.

Steffy: It is tempting.

Finn: Yeah?

Steffy: But I have plans, too. I have some unfinished business with someone.

[ Alarm buzzing ]

Sheila: [ Sighs ] You’ve got to find a way out of here.

Bill: So, let me get this straight. The two of you, on your own, without consulting me, acquired a streaming channel that no one is watching.

Wyatt: Well, I mean, I wouldn’t say no one’s watch– that’s why we got it so cheap. Do you see? Liam?

Liam: Uh, right. Yeah. So– so we just figured instead of, you know, building a new one from the ground up, we would acquire and– and rebrand an existing channel devoted to all things fashion.

Wyatt: Yeah, I mean, just change direction. Update it a little bit. You know, movies, new and old. Documentaries that feature some of the famous designers and– and models throughout the years.

Liam: Uh, and, you know, interviews with up-and-coming influencers. Live coverage of– of shows.

Wyatt: All the award shows. It’S…

Liam: You hate it.

Liam and wyatt: He hates it.

Liam: That’s it.

Wyatt: Yeah, we gotta go back.

Bill: No. I love it.

Wyatt: What?

Bill: And besides, you guys deserve a new toy. You held down the fort at spencer publications while I appeared to be awol with sheila.

Wyatt: [Laughs] Yeah.

Bill: I’m proud of you guys.

Liam: Thanks, dad.

Wyatt: Aw, look at this guy. We’re glad to have you back.

Liam: Personally and professionally.

Wyatt: Yeah.

Bill: Well, no one’s happier than I am. I lost precious time, those… disgusting months with sheila. And I want to get it back. Starting with the time I lost with my katie.

[ Katie moans sleepily ]

Carter: Morning, sunshine.

Katie: Morning. Are you watching me sleep?

Carter: Mm. What can I say? I love looking at you.

Katie: I like looking at you.

Liam: So, uh, katie, huh?

Wyatt: So, she’s back on your agenda?

Bill: Never left it. I just got sidetracked. But I’m back now. What?

Liam: No– nothing. No, it’s just, uh… I don’t think– we don’t want to be negative.

Wyatt: No. Never.

Liam: But–

Wyatt: No. Yeah, just, you– you have a history with, um–

Liam: With katie. And– and with brooke. And…

Wyatt: Yeah. You– you really– you really believe you have another shot with katie?

Bill: Absolutely.

Carter: [ Chuckles] Ah, waking up, you… sleeping beside me…

[ Katie chuckles ] I done something right.

Katie: Mm.

Carter: Starting my day gazing at such beauty.

Katie: [ Giggles ] Well, you make me feel beautiful. That’s not all you make me feel.

Finn: You’re going to see sheila?

Steffy: Yeah.

Finn: Why?

Steffy: I have a few things I need to say to that murdering psycho. I just want to see her. I wanna see her behind bars. Finally caged like the animal she is.

Sheila: Whoa, whoa, whoa, whoa. Hey, O.C. Keller. Any chance that I can get back on the, uh– the prison computer system? You know, I sent an email earlier. I want to see if I got a response.

Guard: Can’T. Visitor scheduled.

Sheila: Who?

Guard: You just gotta wait and see. Still living with odors?

Finn: Look, I just– I don’t like the idea of you being alone in a room with sheila.

Steffy: It’s prison. There’ll be guards. You have nothing to worry about. Though I love that you do.

Finn: Just what– why don’t you let me come with you?

Steffy: I want you to have a nice time with your mom. I’ll be fine.

Finn: Okay.

Steffy: ‘Kay. I love you. I’ll be fine.

Finn: I love you. All right.

Katie: [ Moans ] Why can’t we just stay like this? Just stay in bed all day long?

Carter: That would be awesome.

Kate: Mm.

Carter: But duty calls for me, and you have a date with bill. [ Chuckles ]

Katie: Oh, my god, it’s not a date. He just– he just wants to talk.

Carter: Yeah. Keep telling yourself that.

Katie: Maybe we’ll just talk about will.

Carter: Mm. You know that’s not true.

Katie: I’m sorry if it bothers you.

Carter: It doesn’T. I just don’t trust bill.

Katie: Well, I have a question.

Carter: Shoot.

Katie: Why are we talking about bill?

Carter: Bill who?

Katie: Hmm.

[ Giggles ]

Bill: You guys want a water?

Liam: Ah, no, we’re good.

Wyatt: Thank you. You– you and katie ha– have been through a lot together and– and not all good. Well, that could be said of any couple, wyatt.

Wyatt: True.

Liam: Uh, well, you know, I– I’m not sure just any husband falls for the wife’S… sister.

Wyatt: Yeah, dad. I mean, katie hasn’t been the same ever since you were with brooke.

Bill: Yeah, I know. I know, wyatt. I broke katie’s trust. But I can win it back.

Liam: Oh, he sounds really sure about it.

Bill: All I need is time and access.

Wyatt: And I take it that katie hasn’t been giving you either?

Bill: Not yet. But that’ll change. Not overnight. But I will get another chance with katie, and I won’t blow it next time.

Liam: And what about carter?

Bill: He’ll move on.

Wyatt: Well–

Liam: Okay.

Wyatt: I– it’s hard to argue with you when you’re this determined. You know, I mean, you have been known to pull off the impossible–

Liam: Technically, he just did.

Wyatt: Mm.

Liam: Right? With, you know, securing a confession from sheila, sending her back to prison for life.

Guard: Prison secure.

[ Door buzzing ]

Man on radio: Jail 5 and 7,


[ Door buzzing ]

Steffy: Had to see you in your natural habitat. I gotta say.. suits you. (Music throughout)

Bill: First thing I’m gonna do when katie comes back to me is whisk her off to the stella maris. A month, maybe two. However long it takes for us to really rediscover each other.

Liam: Yeah, cool. That’s– yeah. That’s– yeah. I– I mean, uh, I don’t know. Katie might have some trouble getting away. It just depends on the timing, ’cause, like, as if– if, say, it conflicted with the hope for the future launch–

[Cross chatter]

Bill: All right, all right. Can you just slow your practicality roll and allow me to do my visualization.

Wyatt: You got a vision board for that?

[ Liam snorts with laughter ] Put it up in the–

Bill: Keep it up, clown.

Wyatt: ‘Kay.

Bill: Keep it up. But watch, the two of us on the stella maris, and either before or after, we’re gonna do some house hunting.

Wyatt: Wow. You– you are really planning ahead here.

Liam: Yeah. Yeah. Maybe too far, too fast.

Bill: Oh, here it comes.

Liam: I don’t know. Listen–

Bill: Here it comes.

Liam: I’m just– you– I love you. I’m just saying– I’m just saying it’s possible that you’re underestimating katie’s connection with carter.

[ Katie sighs ]

Katie: Wow.

Carter: Mm-hmm. You can say that again.

Katie: Ha. Okay. Wow. Mm, I think I have it solved.

Carter: What solved?

Katie: The problem with world peace.

Carter: [ Laughs ] Okay.

Katie. No, no. No more war. No more traffic-induced road rage. Even congress might get along. All they have to do is wake up with carter.

Carter: Mm.

Sheila: Problem solved.

Carter: I aim to please.

Katie: Seriously, no one could be in a bad mood after what we just did now.

Carter: Mm. You have a point.

[ Both moaning ] What’s that look?

Katie: I’m gonna ask a, um, slightly inappropriate question.

> Carter: Mm.

Katie: It’s just that I’m curious. What was it like with quinn?

[ Katie laughs ]

Li: So good to see you.

Finn: [ Chuckles] It’s only been, what, two days?

Li: Too long.

Finn: Hmm.

Li: Is this a rare day off for you?

Finn: Uh, I pulled a late night shift.

Li: Oh. So, you and steffy will pass each other at the door.

Finn: Hmm. Well, if we’re lucky.

Li: I know it’s challenging. You have the kids, two demanding careers. I assume that’s where steffy is right now, at forrester?

Finn: Actually, she’s at the prison. To see sheila.

Li: What? Why on the earth–

Finn: She wants to tell sheila how we really feel about her and the hell that she put us through. And not just steffy and me, mom. You, too.

Steffy: Surprised?

Sheila: So, why– why are you here, steffy? Are you here to berate me, humiliate me? Kick me while I’m down?

Steffy: Do I really have to choose?

Sheila: You could show just a little human compassion. You know, put yourself in my position, being set up by bill spencer. What if you found out finn never really loved you, that your whole life was just a scam?

Steffy: First of all, that would never happen. There’s no reason to scam me because I’m not a sociopathic killer. And second, hell will freeze over before I ever feel an ounce of sympathy for you. You’re getting everything you deserve. Okay everyone, our mission is complete balanced nutrition.

Liam: Listen, regardless of how it turns out with katie, it’s really nice to have dad back.

Wyatt: Yeah. Vision boards and all.

[ Liam laughs ]

Bill: Thank you, guys. And– and look, I– I have nothing against carter. He’s fine. He’s a good guy. He’s not good enough for katie, and I told them both, I will fight for the woman I love. For my family. And I will win. Katie will come back to me.

Carter: No. No. No, thank you. No. Pillow talk with you about quinn is a lose-lose situation. I’m gonna pass on that question.

Katie: Oh, come on. Come on.

Carter: No.

Katie: I’m a modern woman. I can talk to you about anything. And I’m just– I’m curious. It just– it was so out of character for you. So, I’m asking because I really want to know the answer. I mean, what was it with quinn? Was it just sex?

[ Carter grumbles ]

Carter: Looking back, it was a bad time for the both of us. Quinn and eric, they were having issues, and my love life kept blowing up in my face. And… we felt very unseen. Except when we were together. Just ignited. And it was the guiltiest I’ve ever felt in my life. But to answer your question, there was a powerful attraction and it made for incredible sex. But in the end, that’s all it was, because she left. This. This, katie. This is real. We just made love. That’s so much better. In fact, it’s the best thing ever.

Katie: You’re right. It was love. And it is the best.

Finn: Sheila has messed with your life a lot longer than you and I even knew. And I know how we don’t talk about it anymore, but I imagine it’s still painful. Knowing that dad had an affair with her. That sheila gave birth to me.

Li: Honestly… I wish I never found out. Sometimes ignorance really is bliss.

Finn: Yeah, this whole sheila thing really tore our whole family apart.

Li: You’re right. My marriage didn’t survive sheila. But you did. Steffy did. I did. I won’t let my mind dwell on the past. The only thing that matters now is that you, steffy, and my precious grandchildren are finally safe from sheila carter.

Sheila: How can you be so cold? Heartless? You know, your husband, son, and I, we all share the same blood. Instead of you respecting that and encouraging a relationship between finn and his mother, hayes and his grandmother, no, you shut me out at every turn.

Steffy: And I always will. Count on that. Oh, sheila, sheila, sheila. You have no one to blame but yourself. Your crimes finally caught up with you and landed you in prison. And now you’ll stay here for the rest of your miserable life. And as far as my family is concerned… you don’t exist. Hayes will never know you.

Sheila: No, that’s not true, because… I’m his grandmother. Finn isn’t gonna let you.

Steffy: If you actually think that, you’re delusional.

Sheila: He’s my son. Finn may be mad, but deep down, he loves me. He could’ve let me die when I had the heart attack. But he didn’t, he saved my life. What more proof do you need?

Steffy: Fins saved you because that’s what he does. He’s a kind, loving man who tries to see the best in people. Even worthless people like you. But I’ll remind him of what a monster you are. And then I’m gonna wipe you from his mind. We will never think about you or talk about you again. My children, they are not gonna know your name. You will be completely erased. Guard?

Sheila: I am going to be back. I am not going to be locked up in this place forever.

Steffy: Guard?

Sheila: You haven’t seen the last of me, steffy.

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Xander gets out of the shower and is surprised when Chloe shows up at his door.

Eric and Sloan eat together at the Brady Pub. Eric gets a text from Brady that he’s on his way as he needs to talk about something. Sloan says she will let them talk. Eric stops her and points out that she just wondered who would’ve drugged the biscuits if not Chanel. Sloan says she has a lot of enemies, so she should probably hire a private investigator or throw a wrench in to the police investigation. Brady then arrives and says he’s sorry as he didn’t know Eric was busy. Sloan says it’s fine as she was just leaving. Sloan tells Eric not to worry as she will figure everything out like she always does. Sloan kisses Eric goodbye and exits the Pub. Brady sits down and questions Eric and Sloan still being a thing. Eric confirms they are. Brady then remarks that everybody hates her.

Paulina remains at the Bakery, trying to entice customers with free samples. Chanel joins her and says it’s no use as people are too scared to taste their goods. Chanel complains that Sloan lost two court cases and won’t slow down, so since she can’t put her in jail, she’s trying to run her business in to the ground. Paulina assures that they won’t let that happen. Paulina suggests they go home to come up with a plan. Chanel says she can’t leave as she has to stay here and close up to get ready for tomorrow. Paulina offers to help but Chanel says she wants to do it herself so she can clear her head. Chanel adds that she sent Talia home to have some alone time. Paulina hugs her and says she’ll see her at home then. Chanel thanks her for trying to help. Paulina assures that she’s always there for her. Chanel then heads back inside the bakery.

Rafe questions Jada saying that what Talia said wasn’t true and asks if she lied to him. Jada says no as that would be assuming too much. Jada informs Rafe that something Talia said doesn’t line up with what really happened. Rafe says it’s obviously really bothering Jada so she needs to tell him what it is.

Talia arrives at the hotel room of a man, who says it’s about time as he brings her inside and they begin kissing. They say how much they missed each other. Talia apologizes for being late and says the police just wanted to question her again. The man questions why and asks if they are suspicious. Talia assures they are not at all and they just wanted to go over the timeline of when the biscuits got doctored. Talia insists that they have no idea that he is the one who put her up to it. He states that going after Chanel and her bakery was his idea, but argues that saying he put her up to it is kind of harsh. He asks if they are not in this together. Talia assures that they are and that she agreed to do this, but it’s a little hard when she’s the only one out there while he just has to lay low. He says it’s hard for him too and reveals himself to be Sloan’s brother, Colin, as he mentions that it was his mother that Chanel pushed off the roof. Talia apologizes for saying he put her up to it since she wanted to help him and she still does. He tells her how grateful he is and that he knows how much she’s done for him as they kiss. He notes her worried look again and asks what it is now. Talia responds that it’s not just about her but Sloan because the police are going after her as their number one suspect and she has no idea that her own brother is behind what happened.

Eric acknowledges that a lot of people do hate Sloan, but he’s not one of them and they decided to take their relationship to the next level. Brady congratulates him and says he’s just heard the rumors that Sloan tampered with the biscuits. Eric assures that they are just rumors since he was one of the victims. Brady is surprised and asks what the hell that was like. Eric claims it was hard to remember and he doesn’t like to talk about it. Eric admits at first he thought Sloan tampered with the dough, but he is his alibi which is why he knows she had nothing to do with it. Brady says he’s just looking out for him. Eric knows he’s not here to talk about Sloan. Brady admits he came to talk about Chloe and how to keep that bastard Xander away from her.

Chloe turns away until Xander puts his pants on. Chloe apologizes for not calling first. Xander calls it unexpected but says he does have a small window of time since his zoom call with Jack got pushed back. Chloe says to send her lvove when he speaks to Jack. Chloe adds that she brought him a plant since she had a hard time finding a card that said sorry for almost killing him with a dart. Xander thanks her and says he’s healing nicely. Chloe questions him about changing the bandage which he hasn’t done. Chloe offers to change it for him since he saved her from the drugged biscuits. Chloe tells Xander to change the bandage every day which he promises to do. Xander jokes that he won’t do it as good as her. They talk about his room not being the cleanest. Xander says the place is no longer indicative of his financial status since he was broke when he moved in. Xander notes that he’s been saving up some money, so he thinks he’s finally ready to move in to a new place. Chloe says she also needs a new place.

Brady tells Eric that every time he sees Chloe, Xander is there, hovering around, playing darts, and obviously gunning for her. Brady complains that Chloe has been hurt recently by things he’s said so she may be open to Xander. Eric asks if anything has happened yet. Brady says not that he knows of. Eric advises him not to get worked up for no reason since they could just be hanging out. Eric encourages that Chloe is smart and will see right through Xander’s act. Brady brings up that Nicole is smart as well and didn’t exactly see through Xander’s act either. Eric admits he has a good point.

Colin tells Talia that it’s nice of her to worry about his sister, but they knew going in that the cops would suspect Sloan and he damn sure didn’t want them worrying about Talia since she put so much on the line. Talia thinks back to walking through the town square while Paulina and Chanel were arguing with Sloan which is when she stole Paulina’s keys from her purse. Talia assures Colin that there is no evidence linking Sloan since she stole the keys to trash Paulina’s office, so there was no forced entry. Colin adds that they can’t know anything else because Sloan is innocent and a damn good lawyer so she won’t let them railroad her. Talia thinks they should probably tell Sloan what they are doing but Colin says no because that would make her an accessory and she would never go for something like this. Colin adds that Sloan had to pump the brakes after losing the court case to Paulina and Chanel as she would never risk her law license by doing something illegal which is why they had to step in and change the game.

Jada goes over that Talia told Rafe that she went straight home after leaving Paulina’s place after all this went down, but she didn’t because Jada was there and Talia didn’t come home until hours later. Rafe asks how she knows it was the same night. Jada says she vividly remembers because it was when she and Rafe admitted they had feelings for each other.

Chanel leaves the Bakery and runs in to Alex in the town square. Alex asks if he read right in the Spectator that Chanel is engaged to Johnny DiMera. Chanel explains that she and Johnny had her breakfast biscuits which were tainted with a hallucinogen and she told Leo that, but to him the truth is just an irrelevant detail. Alex guesses Leo just wrote whatever he thinks will sell papers. Chanel adds that is to the morons who actually read it. Alex says he knows she’s still pissed at him over everything that happened with Allie. Chanel calls that another topic she doesn’t want to talk about. Alex says the whole thing with drugging the biscuits is ridiculous and he feels for her as he can only imagine what it’s doing to her business. Chanel admits it’s killing it which is exactly why his little girlfriend Sloan did it. Alex clarifies that she is not his girlfriend and that they only hooked up but that was over a long time ago. Chanel then suggests maybe it shouldn’t be over as if he’s really sorry about what happened with Allie, he can make it up to her by getting Sloan back in his bed. Alex questions why she wants that. Chanel explains that he can sweet talk her like crazy and then screw a confession out of her. Alex asks if she’s kidding. Chanel complains that the cops keep saying they don’t have proof that Sloan is doing these things to her and Paulina when it’s obvious it’s her which means someone outside of the police needs to talk to her and that is Alex. Chanel suggests he just call Sloan, tell her he misses her, then show her a good time and steer the conversation. Alex asks if she’s under the influence. Alex tells Chanel that he does feel for her but he’s not doing it. Chanel questions why not, arguing that it’s not out of character for him. Alex informs her that he’s sort of hooking up with somebody else now. Chanel asks when that’s ever stopped him and suggests he just make it a threesome since they know he has experience with that. Chanel begs Alex and says she would forgive him for everything in the past if he would just do whatever it takes to get her what she needs and stop this nightmare with Sloan.

Sloan finishes leaving a message outside the Pub, assuring her brother Colin that everything is going to be okay. She then turns and spots Leo. She calls him a bottom feeding hack. Leo argues that she can’t still be upset about the article he wrote about her ages ago. Sloan assures that she is and then informs Leo that she has some dirt for his next column. Sloan tells Leo that it’s about the police commissioner and his trusty detective, saying it practically writes itself.

Jada questions if Rafe forgot it was the same night that they opened up about their feelings. Rafe admits that he did. Jada explains that it was awkward, so she went straight home and the next day, Rafe was drugged by the biscuits. Rafe apologizes again for his behavior. Jada says it’s fine and the point is, she remembers exactly what time it was so she knows for a fact that Talia did not come straight home from Paulina’s. Rafe states that Jada is obviously convinced that Talia is not telling them the truth, so he asks what she wants to do about it.

Talia admits to Colin that getting involved in everything was the last thing she expected when moving to New York. Colin says when they met, there was an immediate connection. Talia thinks putting her medical career on hold proves she felt it too. Colin assures that he will make it up to her and that no one is suspicious. Talia’s phone then rings with a call from Jada. Talia doesn’t know why she would be calling when she just left her. Colin suggests letting it go to voicemail but Talia argues that she always answers her phone calls. Talia then answers and asks Jada what’s up. Jada reminds her that she said they might need to clear things up after her interview which Talia questions. Colin has Talia put the call on speaker phone as Jada explains that it’s about something Talia said as she said she went straight home after leaving Paulina’s, but she wasn’t home. Talia claims that she had a headache, so she went to the drug store and got aspirin. Jada questions it taking that long. Talia then claims she took a walk to the lake, thinking the night air might help her headache. Jada guesses it did since she never mentioned it. Talia says she just wanted to go to sleep when she got home and asks if there’s anything else. Jada thinks that’s about it so Talia says she’ll talk to her later and quickly hangs up. Rafe asks Jada if something is wrong. Jada says he could say that.

Leo questions Sloan saying she has dirt on Rafe, who he refers to as Captain America. Leo argues that people read his column for dirt on people like Sloan, not Rafe. Sloan asks if he doesn’t think people would be interested in Rafe being high on drugs and macking on his lead detective. Leo hopes she means Shawn but Sloan clarifies that it’s Jada. Leo then asks who cares about a little action between co-workers. Sloan explains that it flies right in the face of Abe’s new policy which means he could launch a campaign to get Abe to have to enforce his own policy, so he could blow up the mayor’s office and the Salem police department. Sloan states that Leo would be a force to be reckoned with in Salem. Leo acknowledges that Sloan would also get what she wants as the two cops on her ass would be out on their own. Sloan says most importantly, she just thinks everyone should know the truth.

Eric tells Brady that when Nicole succumbed to Xander, she was saddled with an arrogant, self-absorbed and neglectful husband in himself. Brady thinks his situation with Chloe is a lot more like Eric and Nicole than they think. Brady says he hasn’t been the best boyfriend while Kristen and Rachel treated Chloe like dirt as he basically told her to deal with it. Eric advises Brady to forget Xander and says he’s not the problem, but a symptom. Brady then declares that he is the problem.

Xander doesn’t know why Chloe is so eager to move and says the Salem Inn is great. Chloe complains about the bill and she’s out of work while running through her savings but adds that it’s more than that. Chloe argues that an inn is a place you stay when on you’re way to somewhere else and she’s not, with Brady or Rachel. Chloe repeats that she doesn’t have a job or a life and she just wants a place that belongs to her. Chloe adds that she can’t afford it, so she’s worried about ending up in a place like this. Xander points out that Chloe needs a place that is a step down from where she lives while he needs a step up, so he suggests they take that step together and find a place together. Chloe responds that it sounds horrifying. Xander thought she sparked the idea. Chloe points out that he’s only recently been nice to her but he owns a newspaper while she wouldn’t be able to afford half the rent. Xander explains that they won’t split rent and offers to let Chloe keep the place clean in place of rent for the time being. Chloe remarks that it sounds like he needs a housekeeper, not a roommate. Xander says that one of the most irritating things about becoming friends with her and liking her is wanting to atone for what he did in the past. Xander adds that Chloe would be helping him by allowing him to lend a hand to a friend who is broke. Chloe tells Xander that it’s sweet. Xander swears it would be completely platonic and he will be neater. Xander asks if they are officially in negotiations.

Chanel laughs at Alex being in sex therapy with Allie’s grandma. Alex says it’s just therapy and not funny, then admits it’s a little funny. Alex knows she has a million things she could throw in his face and he knows it’s ridiculous that he’s saying no to using sex for nefarious purposes. Chanel realizes he’s serious about this. Alex explains that Marlena is starting to make him realize that he’s pretty screwed up. Alex adds that he would love to help her throw Sloan back in her cage, but he cannot sleep with her or he’ll end up right back where he started.

Colin tells Talia that they are a great team and totally dodged a bullet. Talia disagrees and argues that Jada knows her, so her alibi being that she just forgot won’t fly. Talia apologizes and says she wasn’t thinking. Talia complains that they separated her and Chanel, so she didn’t know what she said and she was dealing with the police commissioner. Colin gets it but says it’s just really important to him because that bitch killed his mother. Talia says she thought so, but now she’s confused because she knows Paulina and Chanel and they seem like really nice people. Colin calls it an act. Talia doesn’t think so because Chanel told her about everything in London. Colin complains that unless Chanel told her about pushing his mom off the roof and that Paulina flew over to cover it all up, then she did not tell her everything. Colin then apologizes for getting so worked up as this is so triggering for him. Colin calls it extremely important. Talia promises that she knows that. Colin asks Talia if she is still on his side.

Rafe asks Jada what is bothering her. Jada says it’s vague but it didn’t feel like she was talking to her sister. Rafe asks if she can figure out why. Jada says that Talia is always a stream of consciousness all over the map but this was like she was hesitating to answer her questions. Rafe suggests maybe she was just trying to remember but Jada states that Talia’s memory is scary as she can remember what she did for her 12th birthday. Jada questions Talia now forgetting that she had a headache and a walk around the lake. Jada adds that Talia also forgot to turn on the security cameras. Rafe tells Jada that if this is too much, he can have her put on another case because the department cannot ask any officer to investigate their own. Jada thanks him but says it’s too late to back off now.

Eric encourages Brady to have a little more faith in Chloe. Eric states that Xander may make a play for her but Chloe knows exactly what he’s capable of. Brady can’t imagine Chloe would involve herself with Xander after what he put her through. Eric adds that Chloe also knows what Xander did to Nicole and assures that Chloe won’t let Xander enter her life in any meaningful way. Brady agrees and remarks that Chloe and Xander hang out and play darts but it’s not like they are moving in together…

Xander and Chloe look at potential places to live. Xander says it won’t hurt to go look and suggests they find a place to move in together.

Chanel promises Alex that she won’t make any more jokes and calls it brave that he’s going to therapy. Alex agrees though he’s not sure he wants to know who he really is. Alex says that’s enough about him when Chanel is going through Hell. Alex offers to give Chanel a loan to help her while her business is down. Chanel says that’s sweet of him but she could get a loan from her mother if she needed. Chanel adds that all the money in the world can’t buy her back her customers. Chanel says as much as all of this sucks, Alex offering her a loan is generous and her new employee offered to work for free. Chanel talks up Talia as being amazing and says she’s only worked here a short time, but it’s like this whole thing has hit Talia just as much as it’s hit her.

Colin tells Talia that she can’t let Chanel and Paulina get in her head. Colin adds that they have nothing to feel guilty about and they are the good guys here. Talia suggests maybe they should back off a bit and give things time to go away. Colin argues that they can’t do that and they have to keep applying pressure. Colin says that Talia will just have to be really careful of what she says to her sister. Talia decides she should get going. Colin tells Talia that he needs her as he can’t do any of this without her. Colin tells Talia that he loves her and kisses her. Talia says she loves him too and then exits. Talia then runs in to Chloe and Xander in the hall. Chloe recognizes Talia from the bakery. Xander asks if she’s the one who sold Chloe a tained biscuit. Talia says she did and she’s sorry. Talia repeats that she’s really sorry and hurries off. Chloe asks Xander if that was really necessary since she didn’t even eat the biscuit. Chloe remarks that Talia just works there so it’s not like it’s her fault…

Jada tells Rafe that she just keeps thinking about how Talia gets out of medical school and then becomes a baker in Salem. Jada adds that as a doctor, Talia would have access to the drugs that were put in the dough. Rafe asks why when Talia didn’t even know Chanel until she got here and they seem to get along. Rafe adds that she doesn’t seem like a disgruntled employee. Jada confirms that Talia always said she loves the job. Rafe questions what Talia’s motive would be then and why she would decide to drug half the town. Jada agrees that it makes no sense, so it has to be someone else with a real motive which brings them back to Sloan.

Leo asks Sloan about the cops being all over her because of how she’s been all over Paulina. Sloan insists that she didn’t trash Paulina’s office or drug the biscuits. Leo asks what better way to get the cops off her ass by getting Rafe and Jada off the force. Sloan argues that she saw them with her own eyes so all Leo has to do is keep her name out of it and quote an anonymous source. Leo questions if she really thinks a column by him will be enough to throw the investigation off track. Sloan suggests they should find out.

General Hospital Character Description: Dr. Hamilton Finn

MICHAEL EASTON (Finn) on GENERAL HOSPITAL – The Emmy-winning daytime drama “General Hospital” airs Monday-Friday (3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network. (ABC/Craig Sjodin)

Dr. Hamilton Finn


Hamilton, or “Finn” as everyone calls him, is a dedicated doctor and research scientist. His former wife, Reiko, died of a deadly disease, Blackwood’s Syndrome, so he tried to find a cure. He had the disease as well, for years, and he was like an addict with the necessary drug to keep him alive, until he finally found the right cure. He later learned that, as a child, Elizabeth had pushed Reiko down the stairs, as a child, and Reiko caught the virus when in the hospital from that fall. Elizabeth’s father, Jeff, had an affair with Reiko while she was married to Finn.

Finn was a loner at first, but later he was revealed to have a brother, and a dad, Gregory. His younger brother, Chase, is a cop. Finn thought for a time that he might be Chase’s dad because he’d slept with Gregory’s fiance, Jackie, but it turned out that Finn is not Chase’s father. Finn’s dad, Gregory, has forgiven him, and they’re all friends again.

Finn has a daughter, Violet, from when he was with Hayden Barnes (Elizabeth’s sister). They didn’t meet until she was a toddler.

Finn almost married Anna Devane, but she lied to him about Peter August possibly being her son.  Finn is pretty honest and forthright. He’s been quite a hero on the show, not only as a doctor, but in doing spy and detective action when called for.
