THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
You know what I was thinking? I was thinking we have one of those beautiful chocolate fountains. Oh. And for the first dance. How about that Amazing Ed Shean song shape of you. It’s my favorite. Anyway. Hey. Hello. Sorry, I, uh, stop thinking about ej. Yeah, well I was trying to distract you, but I guess it didn’t work.
It’s strange how he just disappeared. You think he’s trying to make some kind of end run behind her back? Highly likely. Look, EJ is always up. Something sketchy, as you won’t know. In fact, we should probably be using this time to plan our counter attack. Such as? Such as using his curious absence to make inroads with Megan.
You know, when I ran into her earlier, she said she was still considering our proposal to team up. Oh yeah. It’ll be like gates and Jobs all over again. You don’t believe her, huh? Are you? You leave her Stephan. Are you kidding me? Your sister’s as subtle as a shark attack. Is it not ridiculously obvious that she has her own agenda?
So Lee, have you touched base with the good Dr. Rolfe? Well hurry up. It’s not like we can hire a cruise ship hypnotist to Brainwash Commander Michaels. Now, can we. No, I haven’t decided yet exactly when and where or how, but just that my brother Stephan’s extinction needs to take place at exactly the right time.
Look, stop worrying. Kristen and AJ are locked away nicely. Some tight in the secret room downstairs. There’s absolutely no way they can sabotage.
How’s big mama holding up? Oh, she’s fine now. She’s just taking a little lie down. She’s bone tired from a trip. Yeah, she was saying it was a rough life across the turbulence. Not to mention that she hates flying no matter what the. Well bless her heart for making the effort to come all this way. Yeah, she sure surprised me.
I had no idea she was coming, but you know, maybe it’s a good thing. Maybe it’s good that she’s resting cuz I sure don’t like the idea. Fold the pieces right in front of her. I’m not sure how much I can even hold it all together. Mama, we’re all here for you, Paulina. Oh, I know. And we are all praying for Abraham Darling.
I know. I appreciate that. I know you are. I know you are. Uh, but it’s just that. The longer he’s missing with no, you know, no word from and no way to reach him. Where, where, where God’s name could he be?
Why would you say such a thing of, of course, I’m your wife. Are you feeling discombobulated? Do you wanna rest a little while? I feel perfectly fine except for the fact that you have been lying through your teeth. Darling, why would you say such a thing? I just had a memory from the wedding jumping the broom with the bride in that bride.
Definitely wasn’t. You
like Sam through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Leah have to go.
Who the hell are you? I’m Leo Stark, also known by my adoring fans. This lady whistleblower. And you must be Megan Hathaway, also known as Megan Demara. What were you doing in my tunnels? Well, I was going to take the front door, but I knew Harold would never be so kind as to let me in, so I came the back way.
Well, I hope you haven’t helped yourself to our valuable wine collection while you’re down there. I’m more of a banana daiquiri kind of guy, so no, I came straight up to see you. Me the poor. Well, there is a lovely British reporter named Gwen Rizek, who happens to be my best friend, and I happen to know that you and your dastardly son are using her as a pawn in some sort of evil scheme.
But I have news for you, Megan Hathaway, or Demira, or whatever the hell you’re calling yourself these days. You are not going to get away with it. Not if Leo Stark has anything to say about it.
And, um, Hmm. How exactly did this happen? Uh, well, I distinctly remember you kissing me and then.
I’m so sorry, Glen. I hate to do this, but, um, I’ve been waiting on this, this business text.
Is it important? Seeing your beautiful eyes and having just felt your lips on,
I just can help. I
I didn’t take it to four.
No, no. I would’ve let you know if. Obviously the feelings were regretted,
but this, this can’t happen again.
Thank you so much, Julie, for stopping by, for bringing my darling son-in-law with you. I want you to know that Doug and I are standing by for you anytime, anything you need. I appreciate that. And Eli, I want you to know that I sleep, you know, better at night for a little, a little better anyway, knowing that you’re on the case.
Yeah. I told Lonnie that we’d find a, and I don’t intend on letting her down. Oh, thank you so much for taking care of my baby girl. I know, I know. How hard things have been over the past year for you both. Yeah, it’s, it’s definitely been tough. The twins and I, we hate being separated from Lonnie, but. Well, we’re managing as best as we can.
Mm. So sorry that the situation just pulled you away from my precious little jewels and carver. No, it’s okay. I can use the break. Oh, I’m no, but look, I, I don’t intend on being here too long. Like I said, we’re gonna find Abe no matter what it takes. Oh, oh, oh.
Well, if it wasn’t me, sweetheart, then who was it? It was that woman, the one from my dream. You and your dream girl. You know what? What was it? Was it Shirley, Ralph, or are we talking Beyonce? Neither? Well, I don’t know who’s making guest appearances in these dreams of yours, but clearly you are mixing things up.
It wasn’t a dream. I am telling you. It was memory darling. Dreams and memories. You just, they’re all the same thing. No, no, no, no, no, no, no. This was, this was vivid.
I was wary that light blue suit and the bride, bride was wearing a gold dress with, uh, With a black floral pattern. Yes, exactly. That was what I was wearing. But it wasn’t you. Oh, Abraham sweetheart. Of course it was me. Prove it. What? How am I gonna prove it? I don’t. Show me a picture of our wedding.
But Abraham, you saw our wedding photo. My daughter Chanel showed it to you at the hospital, remember? But I had just woken up from surgery and everything was, everything was fuzzy, and that image was pretty hazy. I wanna see it again. Well, I don’t have it on my phone. Just not enough gigabytes at the moment.
So, but we don’t, we don’t have a, a photo album with a wedding around here somewhere. We don’t. It was destroyed. What, how Yeah. And, and a fire. Oh, all of our precious memories just went poof up in smoke. Just like that. You’re telling me that there isn’t a, a single photo left from our wedding? Sadly, no. I’m not a single one.
You know, something’s not right here.
Sophia, tell me about the Juneteenth celebration. Well, everybody was asking about Dad. Oh yeah. They’re all very worried about him. Of course they are. Your dad touched on so many people’s lives. I’m, I’m so glad. I’m proud that you were there to represent him and the family. I wish I could have been there too, but you know, I, I, I just was in no shape to go.
Yeah. Julie said you gave a speech. Darn. My dad was supposed to give. Well, I was surprised to hear, I know how much you hate public speaking. I do, but, um, uncle Chad convinced me to do it. I just hope I didn’t embarrass myself too much. Oh, I’m sure. I’m sure you were wonderful baby. And your father, when he comes home, he be, his heart will be so full hearing that you, you filled in for him.
I hope so. Mm-hmm. Oh, and. I almost forgot. Um, there was this older woman who came up to me after the speech, big supporter of dad’s. She wanted to give me this, she, uh, intended to give it to you too as an anniversary gift, but um, she made it herself. Oh, wow. Kind of her beautiful. She said that I don’t give you strength.
And remind you that no matter how bleak things may seem, never give up hope
or Paulina. She can barely hold it together. Well, that’s understandable. It’s one thing not to be with the person you love, but not to know if they’re dead or alive. I just wish there was more we can do to help her. Oh, you and me both seeing Paulina like this, it just. Breaks my heart. I. I think you mean my heart
evil scheme? I don’t know. I have a clue what you’re talking about. Oh, don’t you play innocent with me, lady. You and I both know that you are using my best friend to launder, your son Dimitri’s soiled reputation that he’s using some kind of hot guy, black magic to manipulate Gwen into writing these glowing pieces about him in the Spectator.
Oh. Is that what you think? I don’t think I know. Look, Mr. Whistleblower, I’ll admit that. I was delighted with your friends ride up onto Dimitri what mother wouldn’t be. People seem to have gotten the wrong idea about him. They think he’s some kind of a monster. He is. He’s like a Bootylicious Voldemort.
Well, I would suspect that your friend Gwen wouldn’t agree with you because he has cast a spell on her hell. It’d probably work on me too. There’s no spell, I assure you. My son is just naturally charismatic and charming. You can’t hold that against him. I can if he uses that charm and charisma to lure my unsuspecting friend into his web of deceit.
Your cynicism is disconcerting, Mr. Stark, not to mention that you’ve got it all wrong. You see Demitri actually enjoyed speaking with the charming Ms. Rizek, and he hopes to spend more time with her in the future. I assure you there’s no hidden agenda.
I, I don’t, I don’t understand. Why can’t it happen again?
Well, um, You and I talked about doing, doing some follow up interviews. Yes. Mm-hmm. And, uh, though I didn’t go to journalism school, I reckon that shagging, your interview subject isn’t really something that you bubbling on a pop quiz, you know? Yeah. No, I’ve probably not. No, I’ve never really been bothered by ethical boundaries myself.
If it is a problem for you, Well, I think I might have an easy solution. No, what’s that? Well, how about we end a professional relationship immediately and pursue a personal one instead.
So by a personal relationship, you mean a romantic one? Yeah. Yeah, that’s exactly what I mean. Gwen, I don’t know about you, but. I have never fallen so deeply, so fast, so hard for someone before. It’s just, um, it’s hard to describe. It’s, um, it’s like a spark, this immediate intense spark that I felt. Yeah. But as you know, I, I, I felt it too.
Um, um, when you told me about your, your upbringing, it was like you were telling me about mine, my story. Um,
I think that, I think that you and I know each other in, in ways that other people don’t really. Yes, yes, that’s exactly it. Yes. There’s something so special between us and I’m suddenly terrified of letting it slip away. And to that end, I think I’m about to ask you something crazy. Crazy. What do you mean crazy?
When risk check
will you marry me?
I hope I’ve addressed your concerns, Mr. Stark, regarding my son’s intentions with your friend, addressed my concerns. How? By bragging that your son is charming, charismatic, and honest to a fault. Well, you didn’t say that, but it was in the subtext and it did nothing to reassure me because A, he’s scary and creepy and so are you, and B, you two are honest, like I’m straight and tall.
Well, I’m sorry you feel that way Mr. Stark, but I’m afraid I can’t spare another minute in all this conversation. So I’m gonna have to ask you to leave. Okay, I’ll go but be warned, Ms. Damira Lady whistleblower is going to be keeping an eye on you. So you and your creepy son had better not do anything to hurt my gny perhaps.
You can use the front door this time, fine. I will. And you know what? I am glad to get away from you because honestly, you give me the Hupy Cheapies, and I know why. You remind me of my mother. She too has only a nodding acquaintance with the truth. Not to mention she’s a conniving bitch on wheels just like you.
Oh, did mommy not tuck you in at night? Didn’t read you any bedtime stories? Don’t think that you have me fooled for a nanosecond, Ms. Mustache twirler. I know that you and your son are up to something. And I am damn welcome to find out what it’s
you. I, uh, I didn’t know you were back in Salem. I’m here to help look for my father-in-law. That’s right. Yes. I heard he was, um, missing this awful, have you heard any sign of him? I didn’t know you cared. Of course I care. Not completely heartless, Julie, speaking of which, I’m glad we ran into you, Julie. It’s good to see that mild ticker is still going strong.
Well, no, thanks to Ms. Hernandez here. Uh, I I, I don’t understand. Isn’t she the one who generously donated my heart to you? Generously. You can’t be serious. Wow. I guess Gabby didn’t fill you in. She used your heart as leverage to get back at Lonnie for shooting you. How so? Look, I can explain. Oh, Alami. First she made Lonnie get down on her knees and beg for it.
Imagine the cruelty of one woman degrading another woman that way, especially a black woman. And then she would never, ever have agreed to the transplant if she hadn’t first made Lonnie swear she was gonna break my grandson’s heart. On his wedding day, then to keep Lonnie in line, she reconstructed the pacemaker in my heart somehow so she could control it from her telephone.
And with the flick of her finger. She could murder me by blowing up my heart. Oh, I, I had no idea she had gone to such extremes himself. You see, even he is disgusted by you. Actually, I, um, I couldn’t be more proud.
Oh, I better head out. I gotta make a pit stop before I head to the Salem end Salem and, oh, no. No way. Just staying right here with us. I thought you guys had a full house. Well, you can take my room and I can sleep at Mama’s. Thank you Janelle. Seriously, guys. It’s fine. Oh, honey, honey, are you sure? We’d love to have you.
No, I’m, I’m sure. Look, I’m gonna be spending most of my time looking for that anyway, so I’ll make sure to stop and as often as I can check in with you guys. Oh, Theo, oh, I’m so glad you’re here. I’m so glad you’re here. Thanks for coming. You don’t need to thank me. A year ago today, we became family, which means that we have to look out for each other.
That’s what, doubt it. What?
I’m sorry, Abraham. I, I wish that I could show you the picture, but unfortunately that doggone fire incinerated our entire album. It’s in the picture on Janelle’s phone. Can’t you send it to you? Uh, I mean, in theory she could. Well, you know, why don’t I call her? May, may I, um, yes. Oh. I bet you I can find the photo on my computer here.
Oh, thank you. Okay, let’s see. Oh, I’m just the empress of digital dust. There’s a lot going on here. This. Folders within folders. I don’t have anything arranged properly. Oh, this lock going, oh, this picture, my trip to Machu Picchu in 22. You know, you know, I, I, I think it’ll be much faster if I just call her.
No, no, no, no, no, no, no, no, no. I think I found one. Um, you did? Yes, I did. Well, the should. Let me see her. You know what? I don’t really like the angle on my face. That’s not my most flattering thing. Just show me the damn picture, Paulina. Okay, fine. Here you go.
Oh my God.
I, I don’t understand. Oh, what’s not to understand, darling, as you can clearly see the bride in the photo is none other than more
my mind must be playing tricks on me guys. That’s the only explanation. That and a little Photoshop. What was that? Huh? Oh, no. Nothing darling. Nothing darling. No. You know, if I’m being honest, the only reason that I was convinced I was right. So I noticed that you don’t wear your wedding ring. Oh. Well, that’s because I leave it at home.
You know what? With all the hand washing that I have to do, I wouldn’t want it to fall down the drain. And so I leave it home and sometimes I forget to put it back on. Can I see it? Uh uh. Sure.
It’s my most prized possession.
Wow. I, uh, I’m so sorry for doubting you, accusing you of not being my wife, especially on our anniversary.
So how can I, how can I make it up to you?
I have an idea.
All right. Well done with the dishes. Mama, can I get you anything and a little tea? No. Well, thank you, baby. I’m all right for now. Is that your wedding album? Yeah. And with all this, well, let’s talk about our anniversary. I thought it might be nice. Take a little stroll down memory lane. My goodness. Mama, you were so beautiful that day.
I mean, not that you aren’t every day. Thank you, baby. Oh. Oh, oh, look, that beautiful cake you made for us. You know there’s still a piece in the freezer. Ava and I were supposed to share it today. Oh, mama, you will. Okay. Maybe not today, but, so
what’s this? Oh. Those are Abraham’s vows. That’s a touch button. I should have had somebody personally to fan me down at the altar when he read them. Oh, I just had eight. That’s the copy. I had eight printout for me. His words. They were so heartfelt and the way he delivered them with the that e voice at him, you know, I wouldn’t believe it possible, but I love him even more today than I did back then.
And I wish he was here, so I wish he was here so much so I could tell him that. Oh mama, he knows wherever he is, he knows
you’re proud of Gabby. Proud of her. Humiliating and tormenting and manipulating Alani for over a year in this terrifying way. Lonnie is no saint. She did shoot me in the throat. Your mother was attempting to flee. Lonnie had no choice to fire, and if we being real, it’s your own damn fault for jumping your stupid ass in front of a bullet.
Okay? I do admit that the uh, details are a little fuzzy. That was a very chaotic night, but if I’m not mistaken, that wasn’t the last time Lonnie got in trouble for being a little trigger happy. Isn’t she in prison right now for shooting her own father? Not want a lot of talk after somebody who don’t know what the hell they talking about.
Darling don’t. He’s not worth it. She’s not worth it. They deserve each other. That’s right. We do. And that’s why we’re getting married again. Congratulations for your honeymoon. You can both go to hell.
Oh, father, I suspect you might not like my plans for Stephan, but if it’s any consolation, I’ll do my best to spare Kristen and ej. Then hopefully feeding them well will be a morale boost. Make them less cranky.
Hello? Oh God. I really have to beef up security around here. I’m sorry, I, I hope I’m not interrupting your dinner. Oh my goodness. You are Theo Carver, aren’t you? Lexi’s son. That would be me. Ah, you’re so very handsome. I am your auntie Megan, and it is a real pleasure to finally meet you. You too. So what brings you here?
I’m actually looking for my uncle ej.
Th this, this can’t be happening. I mean, you are, you are joking, right? You’re just having a bit of a laugh, aren’t you? No, no. I’m dead serious, Gwen. I want you to make me the luckiest man on the face of this earth.
I mean, we just met and we, we don’t even know each other. Oh, I know everything I need to know about you. I look at you, you’re insanely beautiful. You’re whip smart. You make me laugh, and uh oh, you’re a maestro in the sheets. What more can men want? This is, this is, this is meant, this is crazy. This is crazy.
Exactly like what she saying. Yes. No, I understand how it might seem that way, but I’ve always been someone who goes after what they want and knows exactly what that is, especially when it comes to matters of the heart. Life is too short to dilly dally
if I’m. Understanding correctly.
Are you saying that you love me? You know, I never believed in love at first sight, but I have been proven wrong. Gwen, I have been waiting my entire life for a woman like you to come by and I am not about to let you slip away. No, not like Xander did that idiot. He, he had no idea what he had. He didn’t appreciates you.
Not like I do. God. I do. And I promise you, Glen. I will spend every single last waking moment of my life devoted to making you happy. And all you have to do is say one little word. Yes.
You’re not saying anything can, I’m sorry. I, I just, oh, my heart’s pounding and, uh, adrenaline is pumping walls from my body and the. So Well, there’s no, there’s no words coming to me. It’s ok. I understand. I completely understand. It is not lost on me how spur of the moment, how impulsive this is, but it just feels so right.
Doesn’t it feel the same way for you? I’m not, I’m not sure. Maybe this will give you some clarity.
With a sock. Oh, holy moly. No way. No how I they, they what in the name of RuPaul’s Drag Race is going on? Imagine, didn’t you see the sock? Yeah, I saw the sock, but I was unaware. We were back in the freshman dorms at state, and you are obviously unaware. You just slept with a lying snake who is going to break your heart into a million pieces, and I’m the one who’s gonna have to pick those pieces up.
Not that I mind because as you know, I adore you. But for God’s sake, Gwenny, have we not established that this guy who is staring at me, will you stop staring at me please? You are creeping me out. Is using you for good press? According to you, Madi, that is because I am the only one who has not taken leave of his senses.
Will you listen to me? Dimitri here has put off our scheduled interviews. Okay. What? You heard me? Perhaps the two of you would rather discuss this. In private. No, no. Please don’t go. No, it’s fine.
Do you mind?
Oh, and Gwen, I don’t mean to pressure you, but. Think about what I said.
I’m afraid your Uncle EJ is outta town on business. I’d be happy to take a message if you’d like. Oh, no need. I was just hoping to see him while I’m in town. He sent me a couple messages about my dad and I said I’d hit him up if I came to Salem, so right. Of course, and I heard about your father. I’m terribly sorry.
Have the police found any leads? Not really. We’ll talk about hope. I’m sure that Nana and my daily departed sister are watching over him. Thank you. You know, you’re really not as scary as everybody makes you out to be. Well, you are as plainspoken as everyone says you are, and I like that about you, Theo. I hope to see you around here more often.
I can’t take this anymore. Oh. Well, what can I do for you, mama? Or we could go for a walk, try and get your mind off things. Oh, no, nothing will. Nothing will stop me thinking about my Abraham, what? I already lost my husband. I can’t go through that again. I don’t have the strength. Of course you do, mama. You are strong and brave, and so you have to just try to stay positive, okay?
For yourself and for Abe, because he is out there fighting to get back to you. I just know it.
what have I gotten myself into? Abraham baby.
It is such an honor and a privilege to renew our vows on such a blessed day. Uh, shouldn’t we have invited our family? Oh, Abraham, we have our family surrounding us. Well, I, I, I met, I met Chanel and Theo. Um, oh, what’s that you say? Uhhuh. Uhhuh. Oh, thank you. Thank, uh, apparently the invitations never got to them.
Something about. A scared mailman and an attack dog. Oh, but no worries. We will send them the photos. After all, we have to replace the ones that were lost in the fire. Uh, I’m not exactly dressed for the occasion. Uh, you know what I will, uh, I’ll put on that light blue suit that I wore for the wedding. Ooh, the suit burned up in the fire too.
All we could find were your charred cuff links, so, well that’s, that’s a shame. Fires are so indiscriminate, aren’t they? Anyway, gimme a ring.
Miss Caddy LaBelle will hold onto this until we’re ready. Okay. All. Shall we begin?
So you actually slept with Count Dracula. Don’t call him that. Oh, I’m so sorry. You slept with Dimitri. The dastardly. Not that either. Well, whatever. We’re calling the guy. It is truly repulsive. It is nauseating. But also kind of hot, like I wouldn’t not eat an entire roast sashimi off that man’s abs. Mm.
Yeah. I’m sure that you wouldn’t not. So how was it? No, don’t tell me. Okay. Tell me. But say that it lasted all 20 seconds and there’s a weird birthmark. You can’t unsee.
It was incredible. Oh, damnit. It was, wasn’t it? I hate you. Hate him. Okay. Can you just take it down a notch please? Because you’ve given me a pounding headache and I’m, I’m already. Quite wound up and somewhat dazed. Wound up and dazed. Why? Wait, what did that guy who I hate more now than I did before?
Because I am all sorts of jealous that you two had so much fun doing the dirty and I haven’t had that kind of fun in a month of Sundays. But I’m also angry with him because he’s using you. What did he mean earlier? What does he want you to think about? Nothing.
He just asked me to marry him.
Oh, mother. Oh, Dimitri. Hello? Oh, those look good one from me. No, they were, oh. I must have worked a bit of an appetite sleeping the fair, miss Rizek off her feet and into bed. Oh, Dimitri, that’s wonderful. I am so proud of you. Thank you. Although this is a bit of a weird conversation. Even for us to be having.
So don’t ask for any further details. Okay? Just one. Did you pop the question? I did. And let’s just say that, uh, well, we got interrupted, but don’t you worry. I’m sure she’ll have an answer to me soon. And she will undoubtedly say yes because who could say no to that magnificent face? I can practically hear what he bes already, who’s getting married.
Why you too. Of course. I, I was just, um, telling your nephew here that I’ve been planning and thinking, um, and we are gonna throw the two of you an engagement party. Wow. I That’s very generous of you. That is very kind, Megan. Thank you. Absolutely my pleasure. And I promise you, this will be a party that you will never forget me and I, I must apologize to you.
I, I thought I had put that whole ugly episode out of my mind, but when I saw those two crocodiles rising from their pri ordinal swamp, I lost it. I.
I can hardly believe that awful man’s heart is beating in my chest. Grandma, that’s your heart now. That’s why it’s kind, generous, and loving just like you. Thank you, sweetheart. Let’s forget about them. We got more important stuff to think about, like finding Abe and bringing him home to Paulina.
I’m gonna go check on Big Mama. Will you be all right here? Yes. Yes. Fine. And thank you for the pep talk. You sweet girl.
Linda Price. By the time I met you, I had, I had thought that I had experienced the last great love of my life. But every day, every day, you prove that love is not in my past. It’s in my present, and it’s in my future.
Now you say your vow. I, I’m afraid I don’t remember them. Um, okay, no problem. I I got you. I’m
Do you take this luscious woman, Paulina Price to be your lawfully wedded wife in sickness and in health to love and to cherish until death Do you part.
Oh, yes. Oh, Abraham, you’ve made me the happiest woman on the face of this earth. Again,
I hope to share that love with our children and. Our grandchildren, as long as God blesses me to.
