THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
4:00 AM in Hong Kong. I wonder, I feel like crap. Survived a life consultation with Father and come back to Bills.
that must be death wrapping out my door.
Close enough. Hello, Mr. Shin. I’m Megan. I know who you are. You’re Megan Hathaway, the one who stole that crystal from me, please. It was never really yours in the first place. And it’s Megan Deira. Yeah. Well it’s great catching up. Not so fast. You and I have important business to discuss.
Yeah. More. There you are. Oh, somebody’s in a good mood. I just got the best news ever. Yeah. My divorce, Lee, it’s final. You are looking at a single woman. Oh, not for long. You hear that? What? What? Wedding bells in the distance of getting closer all the time. Oh, Stephan, I cannot wait to be your wife and I can’t wait to be your dooring husband.
And as Salem’s preeminent power couple, you’ll have the world by the colons. Yes. We’ll, oh, I wouldn’t be so about that.
Oh, hey Eric. Hi. Hey. Any news with Abe? No. Sloan’s brother continues to deny that he’s had any involvement in his disappearance. Sloan believes him. So does Rave. Yeah. Well, I’ll keep praying that they find Abe soon.
how are you? How’s everything going? I assume you’re talking about the pregnancy. I mean, EJ and I have a meeting with the Perinatologist tomorrow, you know, specialist for high risk pregnancies. Right. Well, I hope everything works out. That should tell you that you can have e j’s, baby
lady whistleblower can blow it out as whistle. He doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Sarah and Xander are over for good. There’s no reason to think that that would change.
Okay. You can do this. Funny girl. You can keep Sarah’s pregnancies. See if get easy peasy. Just gotta stay away from Xander. Some just don’t. Okay. Yes, I heard you coming. How did you know it was me? Uh, can’t you see why you’ve got those clo hoppers? I mean, they make a certain flop every step you take and people could hear miles away.
I don’t have particularly big feet. And they certainly don’t flop, do they? No, no, no, no. Don’t do, don’t you come near me. Just, just, just, just please stay the hell away from me.
Like Sands through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Displaced. It was only to freak out. Oh, wait, I know exactly why this is happening. You do. Who told you? No one told me. I just know I, you’re still afraid of me because I. Held you captive, disguised as a killer clown. Yes. That’s, that’s why I freaked out when I saw you. Yeah, I understand. Probably having trauma flashbacks, a big flopping clown shoes coming towards you.
I clown feet is exactly right. Boy, I wasn’t wearing CLA shoes when I kidnapped you. It’s true, but you know what? That’s not really important. The important thing is that that is just so far in the past and I’ve forgiven you, and I know you would never, ever do anything like that again. And the only reason that you were driven to do such dastardly deeds is because he wanted to provide for Sarah and what husband wouldn’t wanna provide for his wife.
Huh? Huh uh, ex-wife. Sarah’s your ex-wife. Two are divorced, she is gone and she is never coming back and you two are never getting back together. He’s Bonnie Leon thick. I’m sorry, I really stepped in. I just know that I meant well. Please meant well, but reminded me how much Sarah needs me. Oh, but she doesn’t, I mean, it’s not hate that she feels, I mean, how would I know how she feels now?
E, even if it is hate that she feels that could change. Because you know what? Things can change. You know what they say? Nothing is for certain except for death. And babies of change. Death attacks isn’t change. Right? Those things are definitely certain. Oh yeah. Ooh, glad we’re on the same page. It is hot here.
I’m gonna get going. Okay. Bonnie, if you have forgiven me and you’re not scared of me anymore, Then why did you shriek and run away when I walked in?
Well, there are no guarantees, but a lot has changed since Holly and there have been some major advancements in the treatment of high risk pregnancies like mine, right?
I hope they tell you some really good news tomorrow. I mean, after everything you’ve been through, you really deserve this.
Yeah. I don’t know about deserving it, but I am happy that maybe I get to be a mom again.
Okay. Yeah. You, you take care of yourself. Yeah. You too,
isn’t it? A little too early in the morning for a drink brother. Shouldn’t you be heading to the office? I would like to wine, wine first, if that’s all right with you. Tough morning. Just somewhat intense, but in a good way. We do get a lot of research trying to find the best possible specialist for Nicole and flying in an expert tomorrow, uh, perinatologist, who will hopefully tell us that Nicole will be able to carry out Charles the time well, I really hope it works out for you guys as you are.
Thank you. And the timing could be perfect because by that time you’ll likely be free. You know? Once the little one comes around and you could be a stay at home dad. It’s like a trend now, isn’t it? All my days will be anything but free when this child is born. You see, I’ll be very busy ensuring that my son or daughter inherits the legacy of our father’s company.
So I will be doing everything on my power to stop Salem’s most incompetent couple from leaving it in ruin.
You don’t have the votes to stop us ej, nor do you have the votes to stop me. No. We damn well do because not only do we have each other’s vote we have Kristen. Kristen. Yes, I know you believe you’ve secured her support. I also know how to be quite mercurial mercurial. Fickle tends to turn on a dime, as I’m sure you two have observed, but that notwithstanding, I have secured our other sister’s vote.
So you may have Kristen’s support. For the time being, I most assuredly have Megan’s, I assume you still have eyes and ears of the company, Mr. Shin? I do. So then you are aware of the fact that there is a power struggle brewing, hard to mess trust. You’re here representing ejs interests. I am here representing my own interests.
You see, my little brother Elvis is a sweet boy, but when it comes to being ruthless in cutthroat, he doesn’t batten my league. Well, you must know I’m out at Tamara, so not quite sure you still have a vote, which I promised to Gabby Hernandez. Who is madly in love with my other half-brother Stephan. So you’ve pledged your loyalty to a woman who’s pledged hers to another man, Wiley.
Why are you going to let someone who used you and betrayed you, keep you from getting what you want?
Chloe. Hey. Hey. I hope I’m not interrupting. No, of course not. Come here and of, oh, I’ve missed you, my friend. We have fairly spoken since I left Basic black. Uh, yeah, it’s my bad. I I should have been better at keeping in touch. No, the phone works both ways. How, how are you, how’s it been teaming up with EJ at the mothership?
Oh, well that’s been eventful, in fact. Um, Life in general has been pretty eventful. Mm. Well, now you’ve got my attention. What’s been going on with you? Well, for starters, uh, I’m pregnant.
Hey, hey, how’s your meeting Go with the da. It’s a disaster actually. My brother’s still refusing to plead guilty and trusts out for blood.
He’s facing a lot of time in prison for what he did up on that rooftop. There’s nothing really I can do to help him.
I know what he did was unspeakable to Mayor Carver and Paulina Chanel. But you know, he’s, he’s still, my family’s is the only family I have left. You have me. I’m here for you.
Huh? So now you wanna know why I freaked out when I saw you? Yeah, you totally freaked out on me. I mean, why did you scream at me to get back? Well, because I feel cold coming on and I didn’t want you to catch it. And you know that feeling when you just have the s just going, oh. When was that? Was that sneeze or a cough?
Oh, both. I’m sorry, my nose is running and my throat’s kinda scratchy. Ooh, I should, I should just probably be wearing a, a mask, you know? I don’t wanna infect people with myy germs. Yeah. So, right. Yeah. Look, I was actually looking for a Maggie shirt around upstairs, I think. Okay. You know what? I’m just, I’m just gonna get the long way around.
Understand this. Hey, it’s a good idea. You probably, yeah. Should go.
Oh wow. She’s pregnant. What? She told you she’s pregnant? No, she didn’t tell me. I just got a news alert. A news alert? Yeah. But you just said she told you she was Bonnie, who do you think was pregnant?
I mean, I wish I could have helped him. If I would’ve known what was going on, I could have stepped in. I could have tried to stop him. It’s, you’re here for him now. He’s damn lucky to have you in his corner. This big sis is there for thanks. I’m lucky to have you in my corner.
Sorry, Eric, I just can’t risk losing you to Nicole. This baby ends up being yours. That test has to come back negative.
When I said someone was pregnant, who did you think I meant? Who? Um, who it was, was the. The person you said was pregnant is who I thought it was. Knew. So you knew that Nicole was pregnant? Nicole, of course I knew. But have lady at Whistleblowers column only just published to the site. She just published on the maybe for.
You, it just published, but I, I just happened to be one of Lady Whistleblower’s premium. I. Subscribers. Mm-hmm. Oh, you’re a little blowy. Ah, that’s me. Not really fond of that name, but uh, then again for 4 99 a month, I get all the dish on Salem’s hot dos before the general public. I see. Yeah. Well, we’re happy to have you.
I’m so glad I approved that revenue stream. Oh, me too. I wouldn’t wanna be in the dark when the next big secret drops. I hate to be the last one to know about that stuff. Right. Yeah. Well, anyway, I really should find Maggie, who’s great, catching up better. What do you have to tell Maggie? Anything juicy? I, well, I don’t think it’s anything that Lady Whistleblower would report on, but Maggie offered me Alex’s job at Titan, but I’m gonna turn her down.
Oh, sander. But I bet that position pays big bucks. It does, but as much as I love Maggie, I, all right. Being my own boss at the Spectator just means so much to me. Ah, I don’t wanna sabotage what’s happening between me and Chloe, between you and Chloe Lane. Do you know any other clothes? Kardashian, but that’s with a K.
Please don’t tell me you and Chloe are an item. Well, I don’t know if I’d use that exact term, but since she’s someone that I greatly admire, I’m happy to say that we are somewhat involved. Somewhat. What does somewhat mean exactly? How involved are you? Two? Wait, I’m sorry. So. You were saying that you cheated on EJ with Eric?
No, no, no. I did not cheat on ej. I just had a a one night stand with Eric, and it was while we were under the influence of those damn hallucinogenic biscuits. So it was just that one time. Yeah. You guys didn’t use birth control? Well, we were higher than kites, Chloe. Oh, so you didn’t know who the baby’s father was, but now you know.
Yes. I had a paternity test done. And I found out that EJ is the father, and it’s such a relief. But now my biggest concern is if I can carry this baby to term, and I know I don’t have to tell you, it’s, it’s been my biggest problem. Right. And if you need me again too, Nicole, I’m here. No, no, Chloe, thank you so much.
But there have been a lot of advances in treatments for high risk pregnancies, so EJ and I are gonna see specialists tomorrow to determine if I can carry this baby myself. Well, that’s so wonderful. I’m, I’m praying that you get good news. Me too. So is EJ happy? He is over the moon and you. Are you in love with ej?
He’s been so good to me. Wow. That does not answer my question Well, that is the best answer that I have for you right now, Chloe. Okay. Well, I know that you said you’re relieved that EJ is the father of your baby because you two are dating and Eric is now with Sloan. But no, no, no. Chloe, please do not go there.
I’ve had a hard enough day as it is, and I, since I already know what you’re gonna ask. No, no. I do not wish, nor have I been wishing that Eric is the baby’s father. What? What is that look? Just makes me think of that line from Hamlet. You know the one that goes, the lady doth protest Too much me thinks.
Eric, when I walked in here before you looked like you had something weighing on you. Oh, please. You’ve been here for me. I wanna be here for you too. Oh, my partners, right?
I ran into Nicole in the square. I see. You know what? Maybe we shouldn’t talk about this. No, no. It’s okay. You don’t have to hide your feelings from me, Eric. Look, I know how disappointed you are. How you wish. You’d have been the father of Nicole’s baby.
I would not put too much stock in Megan. I mean, aside from her being a homicidal mania. Oh, as opposed to Kristen. You mean post to child for rationality and trustworthiness? Okay. Yeah, yeah. Okay. We, we, we both have seen Kristen and Megan put their heads together. You know, they joined forces to get out of prison, so obviously they’re thickest thieves.
So what makes you think they’re gonna stop now and dilute their power by voting separately? Gabby has a point. So ej, maybe it’s time you and I bury the hatchet and not in each other’s backs. So you are suggesting me what? Consolidate power of formal lines. That’s exactly what I’m suggesting for our sisters.
Take both of us down.
I know what it’s like to be slighted, rejected. And to lose the love of one’s life to someone who’s unworthy. Well, that just makes it all the more painful, doesn’t it? So you consider your brother unworthy, my half-brother, please. Birthed by the loaves from Living Aloma
inferior stock. Not to mention that she’s a total psycho. So if I’m reading you right, you’re assuming that my losing Gabby to Stephan and the resulting animosity I therefore harbor towards him and her would motivate me to become entangled in your machinations to take over the company by job. I think he’s got it.
No, not gonna happen. You see when it comes to being ruthless and cutthroat. I don’t batten your league either. Mr. Demara don’t be so modest. Mr. Shen. You see Kristen did fill me in on your own machinations to take over enterprises. How you seduced Gabby? How you brainwashed Stephan? And how you would’ve pulled the plug on him Had Kristen not stopped you?
No. Perhaps the next time that that swine is on death’s door, you won’t be quite so lucky, my son. You seriously considering killing your own brother?
You know, my father was a master chess player, used the game as a metaphor for life and taught me to do the same.
That doesn’t answer my question. I thought that was a rhetorical one. It wasn’t Mr. Shen. I see both of my brothers as kings. Slow moving pieces. Who can move only one step in every direction forward, backward, to the side or diagonally. Whereas I see myself as a queen who is free to move around the board in any direction she chooses.
Mm. But there’s one more queen on the board. Is there not? Gabriela Hernandez. Yes, and I have been watching her moves very closely. Turns out that she’s an emotional queen, isn’t she? She’s hotheaded, high strung one who might be easily knocked off her pants. By the elimination of her king, which is why I’ve come to you.
Now, speaking for myself, I can say that the thought of Hope Brady, with the man that I love leads me to impulses that can only be described as homicidal. So I ask you, Mr. Hin, as you sit here in your sister’s, Modest department. No job, no power. And no love. And then you think of the man that took all of that from you.
Can I safely assume that you might perhaps be feeling burned, humiliated? Would winked and therefore aching for retribution.
Megan is still fixated on Bo Brady and Kristen is obsessed with Brady Black. I doubt that they are in any shape to make any major moves. Hm, wrong. Unlike men, women are excellent multitaskers, and those two are no exception. They can chew gum and walk all over you at the same time. Believe me, the only woman I’m concerned about is the one in this room.
If I’m, again, foolish enough to ally myself with my brother, I know it won’t be long before he throws me over in an attempt to secure said woman my share of power. Okay. Gabby and I have made no secret of our aspirations, but maybe it’s time for the three of us to consider our life balance. Life balance.
What the hell are you talking about? You’re right about me and Stephan. My divorce from Lee just came through and Stephan and I are getting married and you have a new baby on the way. So you are suggesting, I am suggesting that there is more than enough money and power to go around De Marisol. The three of us can find a way to peacefully coexist and eliminate our mutual enemies.
Maybe just, maybe we can all start the next chapter of our lives with a modicum of harmony. What do you say, brother?
So it’s not about Nicole. I just, I really wanted to be a father. But between Judah’s pregnancy termination, and now this, maybe faith is just trying to tell me. It’s not in the cards for me. I don’t believe in fate or destiny or whatever else you wanna call it. And Eric, why isn’t it in the cards for you to have a kid?
Huh? It hasn’t happened just because. It just hasn’t happened. It doesn’t mean it can’t. You’re young, you’re healthy, so why don’t you have a baby with me?
Well, I’m protesting because it’s not helping Chloe, and it’s pretty insensitive too to suggest that I would rather have Eric be the father, especially since I told you he’s not. And, and, and what good does it do to wish otherwise? You are right. I’m sorry my friend. I’m, I’m sorry too. I, I know that you didn’t mean to upset me.
No, I, I didn’t, but you’re right. I was being insensitive. I wasn’t thinking. I look, Eric and Saloon are together now, and EJ and I are together, and EJ is my baby’s father, and I am so grateful. And he’s been nothing but sweet to me and patient. And we are committed to each other and this baby. Well, that’s good.
I’m, I’m happy for the both of you. I’m, I’m praying everything works out. Thank you. And what about you? What about me? I never imagined you working here at The Spectator. Yeah, me neither. But Sander offered me this job and. He doesn’t really take no for an answer,
so you and Sandra are working together and living together Uhhuh, and by the look on your face. Please do not tell me something is going on between the two of you.
Sandra, answer me. How involved are you with Chloe Lane? Why not see you care, Bonnie? Because I’m curious. That’s all. I’m sorry, but I’m not the kind to kiss and tell you kissed. Oh, come on. Spill it. Cat’s outta the bag here. All right. We did share one kiss. Actually, there were three kisses, but I got slapped the first two times.
Oh, so only one kiss where you didn’t get slapped. I’ve already shared too much Bonnie, and to be honest, I don’t really understand why you’re so interested in how many times I kissed Chloe or any other woman. I mean, Why is it with you? What’s going on, Bonnie? All right, I’ll tell you. Okay, Xander, you are making a huge mistake and you need to stop this kissing business with Chloe immediately.
Why? Why? Because of Sarah.
Bonnie, Sarah and I are divorced as you just brought up. She and I were, we’re through. We don’t even talk anymore. That’s beside the point. How is that beside the point, you may not be in touch. All right? But gotta believe me when I tell you, if you get serious with Chloe, it’ll hurt Sarah’s feelings. And you have to believe me when I tell you, Bonnie, that.
Sarah’s doesn’t give a damn what I do. She’s too busy doing whatever with Rex. No. No, she’s not. That’s what I thought meant. I saw her and saw what conditions she what You saw her, her condition. Is she okay? No, she’s fine. She, she’s fine. Yes. I saw her in Chicago when I went to visit Mimi. Okay, well, what’s, what’s the less about her condition?
Oh, I shouldn’t have said condition. I, I, I, men are we, wait, she’s slim. Very slim. Well, she’s not eating. Oh, no. She’s healthy, happy, happy, happy, happy. She, she hasn’t let herself go. Mm-hmm. Hmm. Good. Um. Happy for her that she’s staying fit. Yeah, it’s, it’s always a good thing. Mm-hmm. Well, it’s always a treat.
Catching up with you, Bonnie, but I really should find Maggie now ex I knowand. Really? You have to listen. I understand that you, you’re just trying helpful. But my relationship with Chloe is none of you concerned, and Sarah, she’s in the past. There’s no reason for either of us to give a damn what is.
You may think that right now, right after Sarah has the baby, You both are gonna feel very differently.
You kissed Xander? Well, I kissed him three times, but after the first two times I slapped him. So I’m not sure that those count. Oh God, I can’t believe this. Oh, come on. Listen, I know that he has a history of violence. Deceit. Have you forgotten that he left you in the clutches of a ruthless Mexican drug cartel?
Have you forgotten that? He locked me in a shark cage. He ruined my relationship. My marriage with Eric. I thought if anyone hated Xander as much as I do, it’s you. Okay? Maybe a few weeks ago I would’ve agreed with you, but. You know that people can change and the more that I’ve spent time with him, I’ve just, I’ve discovered that he has his charms.
So I, I, I don’t know what to say. It’s okay. I guess it was a bit audacious of me to suggest that we have a child together. We’ve not even been together that long, but I mean, we do love each other and we’re committed to one another. Why can’t I be the one to give you the child you’ve always wanted? Some slowness isn’t something we just decide in the wake of what happened with Nicole.
This has nothing to do with Nicole. This is about us. Eric, listen to me. I’ve lost both my parents. My brother is about to go away for a very long time. I know family’s important to you. It’s important to me too, but I let all of that get so twisted for, for the wrong reasons, his anger. A hatred, but I’m done with all of that because of you.
Because kindness and your patience, your love God have given me so much. I just, I wanna give you something that you’ve always wanted. Won’t you let me do that for you?
Sloan. I dunno. It just, it feels so, so sudden. Well, it was sudden for EJ too, but I’m sure he is over the moon about it. Yeah, he, he is de flame.
I dunno. I think that you deserve everything in this world. A little precious baby on the way. A blessing. Fiji Damira gets to be a father. Why shouldn’t you?
Yeah, not interested brother, but if you and Gabby want to give up and go work on your life balance, I’ll be happy to accept your letter of resignation as co c e o of the company. Short of that shall just say that the best of
Gabby did love me once, so if something terrible should happen to Stephan. The vulnerable widow de mera could very likely turn to you for comfort. Even if she did, I moved on from her. I had to.
So you’re telling me that if I gave you the opportunity to get her back, And to get back at my brother at the same time you turn me down.
Think about it, Lee. The next move in my little game could very possibly be yours.
Oh my God, Justin, I almost totally blew it. You know me, I can talk my way out of anything. It wasn’t it very clever of me to come up with the idea that I had a bad cold. Oh. Ooh. Oh no. Oh, no, no, no. I, I think I really am getting sick.
Oh, God. Oh God. Oh God. No. God is punishing me for lying. He is.
Oh, he has his charms. What the hell is that supposed to mean? It means that he’s, he’s kind and he makes me laugh, and he’s a really good cook. Chloe, who cares if he makes you laugh and is a good cook? Zaner is the lowest of Lowe’s, and you know that as well as I do. No, not anymore. Well, that’s because you’re not thinking straight.
Xander is a horrible excuse for a human being. His smug, arrogant, exterior hides all that rotten inside. Oh, come on Nicole. That’s how you really feel. Don’t listen to your friends here. Nicole’s just full of Sarah grapes cuz she had her shot with me and she blew it. Oh, there it is. Stupid arrogance. You know, you really are full of it.
You were just, but her loss, no. Is your game, Chloe. If you’re not going to slap him again, please allow me.
So what do you think? Should we start trying? Not gonna answer me. My answer is, I love you better than I know slow. This isn’t something that we need to rush into and the timing is, Right. You’re still getting a big disappointment. Okay. Well, whenever you are ready to become a father, You know where to find me.
I’ll keep that in mind. You’ll definitely be the first to know.
AJ made a huge mistake. Pop his ass. Hey, we tried and under the heading of the Pride Goeth before the fall, you and I are the only ones EJ needs to worry about taking him down.
I just left you, Mr. Shin. Miss me already what we talked about, taken Stefan down by any means necessary. Yes. Amen. Why is decision Mr. Shannon. And I’m sure with your help, my brother is not long for this world.
