THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Sean, what are you? You do realize that it’s barely past breakfast time? I do. And do you have any idea how hard it is to find a place that sell liquor this early in the morning? Don’t joke about this. Listen, I wasn’t joking. The bottle that I had the other night just somehow mysteriously just disappeared.
So I had to get another one. Can I, can I please have my bottle back? No, you can’t. And if you’re wondering if I poured the other bottle out, I did. I confess and I would do it again. Son, listen, I get that you’re in pain about your dad. And that you’re tearing yourself out both of putting him in that coma, but this has got to stop.
Well, if it isn’t, commander Michaels didn’t expect to see you here. That was intentional.
So what were you doing behind the wall?
Dam it ej. I am more concerned about Megan killing Stephan than Nicole killing you. Why would she? What do you mean by that? For God’s sake? I was being facetious. Ohm supposed to be with Nicole right now at an appointment with a perinatologist, an expert in high risk pregnancies, one of the most sought after specialists in the country.
It was almost impossible to get an appointment, but I managed it. I am relieved because I thought Nicole had suddenly become homicidal. No, of course not. And honestly,
finding out that I was to be the father of her baby, I wouldn’t have predicted that it would mean so much to me. As you are well aware, she’s, she’s had a history of miscarriages and it’s all very heartbreaking, so her and I are very, very eager to find out what her chances are of carrying our baby to turn.
But now here I am with the appointment only an hour away, and our sadistic sister has got me tied up tighter than a rodeo calf. Yes.
Oh, Nicole, I’m so good you’re here. I just got a message from the perinatologist, so she should be here within the hour. Where is he? Jay? Is he around? Oh, you mean the man who’s supposedly excited to be the father of my child.
Thanks for letting me know. Is that about Colin guess? I tried to get him transferred to Bayview since he’s obviously in a bad state, mentally. Of course, Trask wasn’t going for it, no surprise. So he’s still at Salem PD and since he refuses to take my plea deal, probably end up at Statesville for the rest of his life.
Okay. What can I do?
Nothing. Except hold me.
Stop right there. Lucy, was he, excuse me. As much as I’m sure you would love them, they’re not meant for you. Oh, these are not meant for anybody because this is where they belong.
Like sand through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Pat, you are being extremely rude. Yeah. Well, at least I’m not a card carrying phony. Like this guy Unc Meister here is about a see through as as that underwear Xander gave you for Valentine’s Day. Look, I know you want me six feet under because I swapped out your priceless emerald for a phony. And now you’ve got double reason to want me dead because I am onto you.
Mr. Hoy toity. Mr. Too handsome for the room. This room. Anyway. Well, Gwenie here happens to be my truest and bestest friend in the entire world, and you have another thing coming if you think I’m just gonna sit back and watch you take advantage of her,
I was. Nearly getting acquainted with my famous family home, which is not your home. So what exactly are you doing here?
So you’re going to exile Megan permanently to a place she can’t ever leave and she’ll never hurt another soul again. It’s simple.
I’m done watching You hurt people.
Dammit. I have to get out of here. I have to get to that appointment. You know what? I didn’t. I didn’t know this meant so much to you becoming a father again, truthfully,
what means the most to me is Nicole’s happiness. I’ve got no pregnant twice before, as you know, and nevermind the drama surrounding those two pregnancies. That’s irrelevant. The important thing is that both times she miscarried and she was crushed. I don’t want her to have to go through that again. You really love her, don’t you?
I really do. Even if she doesn’t feel the same way about me, you know, EJ is the one who pulled strings to make this appointment happen, and now he’s not even coming. With no explanation, just some text that says, Ooh, whatever, you know, deal with it yourself. Okay. Those were not his exact words, but you know, I find it really surprising because EJ seemed really excited about this pregnancy.
Well, he is excited. Maybe I’m just overreacting. Maybe I’m, I’m hormonal, but I’m just trying to understand why he suddenly pulled a disappearing act. C, come on, gimme that. Come on, Val. Listen, I’m not hurting anybody. All right. Are you serious? Because the other night you were so wasted and ready to get behind the wheel of a car, and I’m just praying you don’t hurt somebody else.
I, Lord knows you’re already hurting yourself with all of this. Okay? Oh, you know, you’re right. Actually, you know what? Maybe I should just go on like everything is fine. I’m just gonna forget about the fact that I shot my dad, and I’m gonna forget that I put God sake Sean, no one’s asking you to forget it.
I’m just asking you to deal with it, but in the right way. Oh. Oh, okay. The right way. Okay. The right. And I’m assuming that you know what the right way is, so if you do, I’m all ears I’d to know. Okay. Well, it’s not drinking yourself into a stupor.
Listen, I just, I’m just asking you to maybe go talk to my mom. Okay. Maybe she can help you process all this guilt you’re feeling. You want me to go to therapy? Therapy be, I mean, come on. I mean, Bob is a lot cheaper, so he can stop joking about this. Listen, it’s, it’s not gonna be easy and it’s not gonna be immediate, but I do think that talking to someone about this will help give you some perspective, you know, so you’ll stop torturing yourself.
Maybe I want, maybe I wanna torture myself bell, huh? Do you not get it? Do I have to spell it out for you? Is it, I deserve to be tortured. I deserve to be miserable. That that is my punishment. You can’t mean that. I mean, every damn word of that.
Well, the doctor’s not gonna be here for a while, so there’s still time for EJ to get here. Yeah, of course. I’m sure you’re right. Yeah, listen, I need to get to my office, but I’ll look for you in a little bit, okay? Mm-hmm. Okay. Sounds good.
Oh, come on, ej. Dammit. Answer me pink.
Everything okay? Yeah. Hi, bill. I’m just, um, I’m just frustrated, you know, because I’ve been trying to reach EJ and he just finally sent me a text and I, you know what? It’s a long story and I’m, I, I, I just wish he was here. I’m sorry. Is this about you being pregnant? I, uh, I read about it in Lady Whistleblowers column.
Yeah, right. Well, it, it is so I guess the story is accurate then. And ejs the father. Huh? We did a paternity test. It’s definitive. Yeah. Wow. I guess that probably hit Eric pretty hard. Huh?
I must seem so needy to you. Hey, I know each other sometimes. God knows I’ve leaned on you a lot since we’ve been together. I’m here for you and I told you that
I just wanna be here. All day right in your arms. It’s fine by me. Don’t tempt me. I can’t. I have to be in court soon. Let me come with you. I can help you get through it. You would do that for me
with everything that my brother has done. I mean, the mayor still missing Abe’s or friends. He wouldn’t have even been in the hospital had it not been for Colin. He must be crazy to even wanna be seen out with me. And call me crazy. That was a two-way street. So was loyalty. You’ve been there for me. Like I said, why wouldn’t I be there for you?
Matt, I knew that you were trying to protect me, but you, um, I’m not trying. I’m succeeding Actually. You’re not, you’re not even being very clear right now. What exactly do you think is happening here? What, how, how, how, how am I taking advantage of Gwen? Oh, just stop. I know what you’re up to with your cheap grocery store flowers and your good manners, and your good looks and your good.
Okay, fine. I’ll give this one to you. Your great body. And you turn on the charm and suddenly the spectator is running this splashy front page sugarcoated profile about Salem’s latest Euro trash reject. In which you’re all, I know, I present as a narcissistic sociopath who wants to destroy the world, but deep down in just a cuddly teddy bear, God.
And this, this is what you’ve wanted all along, isn’t it? Von Liar, liar, pants on fire. All this great free publicity, Dimitri. Well, I will not stand idly by while you try and manipulate Gwen into giving you more and more, because lemme tell you she’s a real journalist and if she’s not gonna stand up for herself, then it falls on me.
Where does that leave us, Mr. Stark? I still sit down. Oh. Like you wouldn’t cheat, but go ahead. Kill me. If you must. At least I will go down knowing I was defending my best friend from your insulting and nefarious behavior.
My Commander Michaels, I’m insulted. Talk about baseless accusations safe act.
I know you have somebody in your sights right now. Who is it? Hope Kate, somebody else in town. Who’s in your way? Oh my look who’s come down with a terrible case of savior complex. So now your Salem self-appointed protector. Tell me, does the job come with a shiny tin badge, perhaps a Dakota rape? Somebody has to protect this town from you, and I’m proud to be the one to do it.
I owe the people a Salem that much after all the damage I did when I was under your control, and you were such a disappointment. Believe me, I’m about to become more disappointing to you.
what the hell is going on here?
Fuck mad. I simply stop by to express my thanks to Gwen for the story. That’s it. No ulterior motives, I swear. Right? Okay, Matty, you know you love best, right? And you know that I adore you, but sometimes you could be just a bit overzealous. And you can be dangerously dewy eyed and gullible at times. Gwen falling, shallowly.
Shallowly, is that a word? Shallowly. Shallowly. Pray to a man’s physical attributes, ignoring the fact that he’s a master manipulator with a heart of stone. Okay, that’s enough. Just Dimitri, as you recall. I’m sure. You remember yesterday I defended Matty and I think today he’s just trying to return the favor, return the favor way to downplay Guinevere.
I offered to die for you and he seems to forget that I am absolutely capable of taking care of myself, and that’s why your life has been such a better roses. You see Matty as a very loyal friend, so loyal. In fact, he sometimes passes the ability to take a hint. Not to mention my ability not to be fooled by a slick and slimy creep whose only attributed is that he looks like a cross between George Clooney and Ricky Martin.
Oh God. Look, look at the time, um, you have a deadline, don’t you? Yes. You have a column that you have to file now, right? Matty, right now I’ve got my eye on you. Tall, dark, and dangerous. Don’t forget it.
I’d like to apologize for my friend. He, um, sometimes has an overactive imagination. No, no. Um, actually I should be the one apologizing to you. You see? Now that we’re alone, I can tell you the truth that Sure. Odd little friend there. Well, he was absolutely right about me.
Uh, God. Sorry, Nicole. That was so insensitive. I’m just a little and no more than a little. Listen, I, I know it’s no excuse. I just had a really rough morning. Yeah. We’ll, join the club. What’s going on with you? It’s Shawn. Yeah, it’s uh, you heard what happened with his dad and how he was trying to save his mom and Yeah, I did.
And I also heard he is struggling with it. Yeah, that’s putting it mildly. And it’s just getting worse. So I thought I would bring him here to see my mom, but, um, you’re here alone. Well, I came anyway. Yeah. So I should probably go talk to her and get her thoughts on all of this. And, um, you don’t need to hear about my problems, but I am so sorry for what I just said about Eric.
I know it’s, it’s complicated. Okay.
Complicated. You have no idea.
So you think, Nicole, what she’s using you doesn’t have feelings for you? No, no, no. I’ve never said that. I’m, I’m just not confident that she loves me quite the same way that I love her. Why is that?
Oh, did you say the L word to her and she didn’t say it back, and how was that? Any of your concern? Well, just. Answer my question. It’s complicated. All right. Because of her past feelings for Eric Brady, though it might become less complicated now that he’s clearly moved on with that hateful lawyer that Baden noir of everyone of Salem.
You haven’t eaten a thing. Listen, I know you’re worried about your brother, but you got to eat so you can keep your strength up. This is not about Colin, it’s about you. Me. Did I do something wrong? No. No, you didn’t do anything wrong. It’s about the offer you made me earlier when you said you’d go to court with me.
Well, it really touched me. I wanna support you because I love you. I love you too, Erin. Which is why I,
which is why what? Which is why I don’t want you to forget about the offer I made about us having a baby together. I haven’t forgotten. Why are you bringing him now? Oh, well, because you just do so much for me and I wanna do something for you. And that’s very kind and loving offer, but you have so much on your plate right now, and I don’t mean literally.
Seriously though, given everything that I’ve gone through and what you’re going through right now, I don’t think it’s the right time for us to have a baby. Why the hell not?
It’s starting to feel like Grand Central Station in here. I’m gonna have to talk to the staff about upgrading the locks. Whoa. Well, so much for being done with Megan Hathaway, right? Hmm? That’s Megan Demara. Who is it that you’re gonna take out next? Huh? Is she trying to get you to go after my mom again?
Hey, just slow down. It’s obvious you’ve been drinking. You g know you sound like my wife. You got, you got it wrong. Okay. I’m here to deal with Megan, not make a deal. We’re on the same side. Okay. And who, wait, who is it that asked you to do that? I, I, because I, I decide. I decide. I decide who’s on my side.
Okay. Thank you very much. Are you sure that you were sied by Bo Brady? Because you are absolutely nothing like him. Pathetic, drunk in little mansion. You’re the reason that I’m like this. Okay. How is it that you. How is it that you’re not in prison? Hey, how is it that you are walking around here free? Well, my parents after everything that you did to them, huh?
My mom and my dad. You keep your distance. Oh,
wait a second. Who’s the one that’s pathetic right now? Hmm? Who’s pathetic? Wait, are you scared, Maggie? Are you scared? Are you scared that you’re gonna have to pay for messing up my dad’s head and turning him into a zombie? Huh? Is that what you’re gonna, oh, come on, Shawn, let’s calm down. If you tell me where your dad is, I can go and apologize to him now.
Oh, wow. That’s That’s hilarious. That’s hilarious. An apology. An apology. Talk about a little too late you sadistic bitch. You know the minute, the minute that I thought of it, you were here. I knew, I knew that I needed to come here and I needed to do something. Yeah, Maggie, you know what? You, you were gonna pay, okay?
That is enough out of you, detective, unless you wanna have a bullet between your eyes.
Kate, what are you? He is dropping. Sorry, not sorry about letting in. So what did you hear? Well, I heard enough, although you girlfriend may not be a favorite of mine. That’s beside the point, which is, which is. Obviously you are serious enough about each other to be talking about having a baby. Something I know is very, very important to you.
So if there’s an offer, genuine one, why would you wait? Because it’s a serious decision. It’s not something you just rush right into, oh, blah, blah, blah, blah, boring. Okay. I know you’re trying to do the responsible thing, but, but life is messy. I mean, it can be joyous. It can be thrilling, and then it can be depressing as hell.
You still have to plunge in and embrace the chaos. I mean, if you’re always using all of your energy and time to logic through everything, opportunities are just gonna pass you by and you won’t even notice because you’ll be so busy trying to do everything the right way, and all of a sudden you’re gonna end up on a boat in the middle of the ocean, God knows where, cutting the heads off fish and wondering why you didn’t do all the things you wanted to do.
Well, tell us how you really feel. Yeah, cuz it’s not that simple. Oh, I never hold back. Oh yes. It is that simple. I know about McCall and EJ Roman filled me in. So what so what That it didn’t work out. Screw it. Why don’t you make something else work out? Because if you wait, all you’re gonna do is get older.
I mean, if there’s something you want really, really badly, you need to make that happen, and you need to make it happen now.
Hey, speaking from experience, although it has been a while, um, When a woman isn’t expecting to hear, I love you, it does take some time for her to process it. Therefore, she might not immediately respond in kind. Well, obviously Nicole did not. But in her defense, I was unaware that she was pregnant. She was unaware who the father was.
I, well, I, I don’t know this if this would be comforting to you in any way, but, um, I wouldn’t say I love you too, under those circumstances, but Nicole and I have known the truth that I’m the father for several days now and she hasn’t said it. Yep. Ej, she doesn’t know if she’s gonna carry this baby to term.
And she’s in a very stressful position, said, just don’t expect too much too soon,
Kristen, if I didn’t know better, ID think you were trying to be helpful to your brother. Are you actually offering me emotional support?
And if anyone asks. I will deny it.
Oh, maybe today was the day that Nicole was going to say it. Dammit. If I hadn’t tried to warn Stephan, I’d be with her right now at the doctor’s appointment, finding out where we stand. Instead, I’m here waiting for the craziest mirror of all time to decide our fate.
I wouldn’t if I were you, commander Michaels, you stay exactly where you are. That’s a good boy, Shawn Brady, you pathetic little weasel. Here I am grieving the loss of my beloved bow, and all you can do is drown yourself in a bottle of booze. Not to mention looking around everywhere you can for someone else to blame for the bullet that you put into him.
I know. I know what I did and I hate myself for it. But you know what? But the truth is I would do it again. I would do it again if I knew that I was saving my mom’s life because I thought, I thought my dad was gonna kill her. I wish he had. You should have let him because we’d all be better off then.
That’s right. That’s right. Shawnee. Boy, back away and don’t you dare take another step. I waited years, years to have my beloved bow back. And you, you ruined it in an instant. Well, guess what? I can ruin you in an instant. Megan. I’m, I’m a witness. You pull that trigger and you go straight back to prison. You silly, silly boy.
There will not be a witness if I go this far besides. This man broke into my house and threatened me. I am well within my legal rights to end his pathetic little life right now. I just hope that it won’t permanently stain my carpet with your blood. It’s one of my favorites.
So you really were just using me to clean up your image, a very unsportsmanlike of you. No, no, no, no. I, I would, I would never do anything like that. What I meant was that your, um, well, your persistent and very, very loyal friend was right to assume that I did come here with, well, with an agenda, uh, with her.
Then what is it? The truth is that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about you since the day we met. That’s why I brought you these flowers,
Gwen, ever since I saw you at our family home, I just, I just felt something and ever since that day, I haven’t been able to get you outta my head and my heart. Forgive me, I, I’m sorry. I’m, I’m, I’m putting you on the spot. How could you possibly, well, how could you possibly have the same feelings for me?
What if I do.
You mean you, you actually have feelings for me.
You know, we had lunch the other day. I, I couldn’t believe how much we had in common, how alike we were. I. I thought I was being too obvious with my feelings. Honestly, must be my famous British Reserve for not showing it. Or maybe it was that my vision was just clouded by hope.
Well, I hope you’ve seen clearly now
Hey Sean. Come on. Stop Megan.
Okay. I know you think you got a case of self defense, but two dead bodies are gonna mess up whatever plans you have cooking, and we both know you always have something planned.
Good decision now. I’m gonna walk Shawn out. Shawn gonna walk out. You’re gonna put the gun down
and we all to fight another day. Let’s go. Sean, walk out. Let’s go.
Stupid Salem Protector. You are lucky. I need you for my plan. Still commander.
Which reminds me, what am I gonna do about those two down there?
Damn her. How long do you think she’s gonna let us stew down here? You tell me you are the one who’s been colluding with her. Okay. You know what? I owe you an apology for throwing in my lot with her. Well, in your defense, you had no idea. She made the bummer look like an older boy.
Ah man. When she cooked up that plan to escape from prison, I was determined not to get left behind. I just, it went along with the plan cuz I thought it was gonna be my only chance to get back with Rachel. I do understand that I. Oh, honestly, I mean, I didn’t mind plotting behind my siblings back. I mean, alls, alls fair and love and corporate governance, right.
God, I had no idea. She was such a crazy woman. Oh hell, she makes me look practically normal. Let’s hear it for normal. I’ll take that any day of the week. Hello? Hi Kayla. Can you sign a vj? No. I texted him a couple of times. Well, actually a couple thousand times, but I haven’t heard from him. He must be tied up somewhere.
Well, I’ll stay here with you so you don’t have to do this alone. All right. I just got another message from the doctor. She’ll be here in a few minutes. Oh, that’s great. I mean, at least we’ll find out one way or another what my chances are of carrying this baby to term.
You have to admit, I mean, everything Kate said makes sense. Oh, I always make sense. Excuse me. Okay. So if this guy needs further convincing, you’re going to have to handle that on your own because I have to go. But before I do, I have one more thing to say to you. You need to cease today. Okay? And I know that you know what that means, because you gave a sermon on that once when you were still wearing that funny little collar, remember?
Okay, look, I swear to you, I did not pay her to come and say all of that, but what do you think
here? Drink this. It’ll help.
After everything last night, I should have known you’d go after Megan today. I never should have let you leave like that. We could have shot you. Yeah. Well, I wish she had. Don’t say that. Listen, I would’ve taken that bullet. I would’ve taken that bullet because I deserve it. No, that is not true. Look at me.
Son, I love you.
I dunno, what am God’s name has she been doing up there this whole time? Who knows? Maybe she’s found someone else to terrorize. I just hope Stephen’s safe. Oh. God, I have a feeling that we’re gonna be down here for a long time. See? Might as well get used to it. There is no way in hell I’m getting used to this.
Oh, damn it. What Nicole? No, the appointment was an hour ago by now. She’s gotten the news about her pregnancy, good or bad, and I wasn’t by her side.
Nicole. Oh, oh. Hi. Everything. All right. Uh, yeah, you, I, I just came from that doctor that I told you about, the one that AJ arranged for us, the perinatologist, to see if I could carry the baby to term. Mm-hmm. What’d the doctor say? Well, I mean, as, as we suspected and, and of course I read up on this too, so I’m not really surprised, but there’s been so many changes since Holly was born and, and with the, uh, some new treatments, the doctor thinks.
The doctor thinks there’s very good chance. That’s great news. I’m happy for you and ej. Yeah, no, truly it’s, that’s wonderful news Nicole. And congratulations. We actually have some good news of our own too. We just discussed this a few minutes ago, but um, we’re gonna try and have a baby as well. Isn’t that great?
We’re gonna be pregnancy twins. It was thanks to Kate. Really, Kate? Yeah. She made me see that there’s no point in weighing around for something I really wanted.
So Shawn just stumbles in and blows up the whole thing. He was there to confront Megan. Obviously he was drunk, he was belligerent. Damnit. Damn it. So that’s it. You just canceled the whole thing. Well, I, I had no choice. She was gonna put a bullet in him. Well, of course she was going to put a bullet in him.
She’s a homicidal maniac. If we don’t stop her, she’s capable of putting a bullet in him. Hang on. Don’t worry. This is just a delay. When the time comes, I’m gonna go back and then you’ll never see or hear from Megan again.
All right, back to business. I know taking over the world was so labor intensive.
I’m so sorry, Glen. I hate to do this, but, um, I’ve been waiting on this, this business text.
Is it important?
Not as important as this? Oh.
