THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
One for you, and one pour moi.
Poison free, I trust? Oh, I believe you, and I’ve moved past all that. Have we? Because I’m still a little confused as to why you invited me out for drinks. Well, I thought we should discuss the fact that our sister Megan has vanished after trying to have you killed. You disappointed she didn’t succeed? No, in fact, I was the one who tried to stop her.
Believe me, I hate that it’s come to this. But I don’t have any other options. Yes, of course, I’ll send the money right away. You just better come through for
me. Gabby. On coincidence, I was just thinking about you. Asking
for his shared custody of my daughter. Julie, that’s not an unreasonable request. Are you serious? You kidnapped Rachel. So maybe if you, I don’t know, give her back, my brother would be willing to negotiate. You know what, Belle? Breaking news. Brady took Rachel just before you arrived. And he was not willing to negotiate.
So you did take Rachel. No, I did not say that. Then what are you saying? That she just showed up? Yes! Yes, that is exactly what I’m saying, and thank God she did because Brady was about to shoot me.
Baby, you, you called the police? Um, when? We got the report about 20 minutes ago. It was when you started to get gas! Baby, why would you do that? Well, why? Because you
tried to kill my Well, between Rachel Black’s disappearance, the police commissioner being sacked, and Mayor Carver’s funeral, I would say that we have a pretty solid issue here, so well done everybody. I’ll see you all bright and early in the office tomorrow morning. Okay.
Surprised I haven’t heard from my darling fiancé today. Wonder what he’s up
to. Extends through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Hello, love. Um, Look, ring me when
you get a chance. I’ve just finished work and I was, well, I was hoping that perhaps we could meet up tonight. I mean, if we are to be married by the end of the month, I think we should probably get a start on, um, getting things sorted. Yes?
You know, my darling. The more this sinks in, the more excited I get. I cannot wait to be your wife.
that was quite the workout. Yeah. Who needs a gym membership, right? I think I might just cancel mine. What was that last move you did? Oh, I call that the Ariana Grande. A little bit of sass really gets the crowd going. Aren’t you my little pop culture aficionado? And I find it works especially well on emotionally unavailable men.
Well, I’d have to agree with you on that. So, need time for another round? I could show you my Dua Lipa. An intriguing offer, but I think I’m gonna need time out.
Missed call from Gwen.
I hate deceiving her like this. And normally I don’t mind being sneaky and duplicitous. Because, truthfully, most people deserve it. But Gwenny, she’s my ride or die. My confidant, my most loyal friend in the entire world. It’s all very touching, Leo. But what about what you deserve? What makes you happy? You know, what you want.
You’re enjoying this, aren’t you? Oh, God, yes. That’s the problem. I am betraying my best friend over a magic disease. Why do you keep calling it that? Oh, it’s just an inside joke between Gwen and me. Which has now lost its inside joke status and become a dirty little secret. Since she has no idea that we are hooking up behind her back.
Leo, we need to find a way to get you over this guilt. Oh. How am I supposed to do that? How would I not be a heartless bastard if I didn’t hate myself for this? So now I’m a heartless bastard? Because I’m not torturing myself over the guilt? Because I’m not beating myself up over this? No! Well, I mean, sort of.
Look, look, isn’t there some other woman you can bamboozle? Someone who isn’t so kind and sweet and knows exactly which episode of Frasier to put on when I’m in low spirits. You know I’d love to, but it’s too late. The wheels are in motion. If I want to see any part of this inheritance, I need to be married by the time I turn 40, which we both know is at the end of the month.
There’s just not enough time to find someone else. You say that, but, but, but, but, but, but, I used to work at a bowling alley with a woman named Amy. Spelled A I M E and I think another E. I sincerely like Gwen. I care about her. I really do. And I’m not so heartless that I don’t feel bad about deceiving her.
Just right now. I’m stuck.
At least, now I’m stuck with you.
You tried to stop Megan from killing me. Why do you think she locked me up in the tunnels? Figured you were her next victim. No, no, you see, I overheard her on the phone plotting her brother’s demise. At first I thought she was referring to me, but in a moment of desperation she confessed that it was you.
Who is the intended target? In here, I thought she liked me. She tried to rope me in on her plan, her usual Machiavellian craziness, but when I refused, she knocked me out. Wow. Guess I’m a little baffled. Baffled why? Because had you gone along with Megan’s Machiavellian craziness, you’d be free of me. Who you obviously loathe and detest, and you’d be running DiMera all on your own.
All you had to do was keep your mouth shut. Why didn’t you?
You were thinking about me. How was that? Well, I heard about your terrible ordeal. How Rolf attacked you and handcuffed you to Megan’s hospital bed. Can’t imagine how frightening that must have been. Scary as hell, all right. And I swear to you on everything that’s holy, if I ever get my hands on that slime bucket, I will rip that stupid ponytail off of his head and strangle him with it.
And he would certainly deserve that. But what were you doing visiting Megan alone? Well, you insisted that Megan hired Harris to kill Stefan, so I wanted to confront the Puppet Master face to face. I see. You shouldn’t have gone there alone. That’s what Stefan said. But, you know, I promised him that from now on, we will be doing everything together as a team.
No more going rogue. However, today, I’m making an exception.
About to shoot you? Give me a break, Kristen. Brady would never shoot anyone. Oh, but you are so wrong. He actually announced it. He pointed a gun at me, and he proudly proclaimed that he was going to murder me. You’re lying. Brady doesn’t even own a gun. It was a loaner from John. Well, I still think you’re lying.
Because if Brady would have threatened you with a gun, you’d be at the police station right now. What’s that old mob saying? Singing like a canary? But instead, you’re sitting here bragging. Begging for my help. Oh my god, please, please. Do you think the police are going to believe me? No, I mean it’s his word against mine.
And whether you believe me or not, I am telling the God’s honest truth. Brady tried to murder me in cold blood. He has gone completely over the edge. Well, if that’s true. That’s because you pushed him. Oh my God. Even if that were true, does that justify that he tried to kill the mother of his child? Oh my God, Kristen.
You have lied to all of us so much, and made So many people miserable, not to mention that you have been about to kill numerous people, numerous times, and damn near succeeded. So it shouldn’t come as a surprise to you that I feel zero sympathy for you. And I have zero faith that everything you’re telling me right now isn’t some sinister attempt to screw someone over.
In this case, my Brother who I love and trust and wish I’d never gotten involved with the likes of you. So sorry, Kristen. No, I will not help you. You’re on your own.
Detective Hunter, look, this is a complete misunderstanding.
But I saw you! were I must ask you again. Is what Rachel is saying true? Did you pull a gun on Kristen DeMera and threaten her life with it? This is what’s true. Yes, I went over to Kristen’s house. And we did have a, we had an argument. Alright, I mean, she kidnapped my daughter. No, she didn’t! Yep, Rachel, honey, please don’t lie about this.
I’m not lying!
Look, I may have, I may have said something in the heat of the moment. Like, I ought to kill you, but I didn’t mean it. And I had no gun. I don’t own a gun. He put it in
that drawer when we got home.
It’s locked. Do you have a key?
Code, please? Yeah.
Mr. Black, can you find a sitter for your daughter? I think it’s best if we finish our conversation down at the station. No, come on. You’re not serious about this, are you? I am dead serious. When you pull a gun on someone, there are questions that need to be answered.
Gabby, what are you doing? Where’d you get the gun? Oh, I could get my hands on a gun whenever I need one. And I definitely needed one. See, I just, it’s insane to me that Trask would let you walk free after you tried to kill Stefan. I told you, it was Megan DeMera who wanted Stefan dead. I thought you’d believe me.
I do. But I also believe that you were her partner in crime. You’re wrong. I had nothing to do with it. That’s where Trasluc and me go. There’s no evidence. I don’t give a damn about the evidence! I know you’re involved! And if you think I’m just gonna sit around waiting for you to, to attack Stefan again, you are sadly mistaken!
While it’s true that you and I have had our differences, and that I’d prefer to have you out of my way, Tamira, but that’s a far cry from condoning your murder. After all, we’re family. You’re my brother and I will always feel a deep connection to you. I wonder if anybody’s got a tissue box. Mark me all you want, but if there is one thing father impressed upon me strongly, is that family loyalty is extremely important.
Well, he never impressed that upon me because I never got to meet the mighty Stefano DiMera. I think you two would have gotten on quite well. Actually, you remind me a lot of him. In fact, I would go as far as to say that you’re more like him than I am. Oh, thanks. I think.
You know, a while ago you and Gabby proposed we call a truce. I was too stubborn at the time to see it, but you were right. I think it’s time we started working together as a united front. And why? Megan’s gone. She’s probably off somewhere, setting up a mosquito net. Well, for now. But I suspect she’s already plotting return.
And in the meantime… She’s left a fox in the hen house.
If you happen to come across my chapstick, do be sure to keep it at room temperature. Oh, I will be sure to. I’ll call you later and, um, remember to keep your mouth shut. That’s not what you were saying earlier. Mr. Stark, you are incorrigible.
Auntie Kristen, how’s your day going so far? Well, definitely not as good as yours. What’s that supposed to mean? It means… Who were you sneaking out of the house just now? Was it your girlfriend? Her boyfriend.
And that’s when I ripped up the custody agreement. I was pissed that she was going to use my daughter as leverage. So you tell me. But then you decided to take matters into your own hands. Not another word. I told you not to talk to the police until I got here. Well, I know, but I didn’t figure there was any point in waiting because my daughter already told Detective Hunter everything that went down, okay?
Besides, I’m not gonna lie. I’m not gonna lie about this or anything else because earlier today, I accused my own daughter of being a liar and I pretty much hated myself for that. So, I’m just, I’m, I’m gonna be honest. Completely honest here. It’s what’s best for everyone, okay? Besides, the truth always has a way of coming out.
My, my, my boyfriend. I assure you, I
have no idea what you’re in my ear. She said that yesterday, uh, she saw you and Leo Stark in bed together. Now, she thought it was a sleepover, but us grown ups know better. Yes, yes, I, that, I, I can explain. No, no need, no need. I figured it all out on my own. Figured what out? I happened to catch Stark with his hands in the cookie jar.
Yeah, he was snooping around here trying to figure out why you’re about to marry his best friend. I summarily threw him out, but somehow he must have doubled back. I’m guessing he found the codicil about your inheritance, and before he could blow the whistle… Well, you let him, you know,
blow the whistle. Colorful way of putting it.
But correct. Yes, I had no choice. I had to keep the chatterbox quiet, and so I took one for the team. Oh, manner of speaking. I’ll be the first to admit it. It’s all rather demeaning, having to resort to such lengths. So, I… Trust. You will keep this between just the two of us. Of course. I have a vested interest in you receiving that inheritance of yours.
You do? Mm hmm. How else am I gonna get my cut of the von Leuschner?
Merchant. Marty, I was wondering where you were. You missed the spectator meeting. Oh, the meeting, that’s right. Totally slipped my mind. Obviously, since you’ve been M. I. A. all day.
Care to share what you’ve been up to? Well, I, um, I have been working on my fabulous new column about… Get this, do you know that there’s an app just for cuddling? Creepy, right? Although you would be surprised how many people are starved for intimacy. All this is just to say that I have been doing some gonzo journalism, a la Hunter S.
Thompson. Hey, with a better skincare routine. Right, okay, yeah, um, what I understood from all that rambling that you just did now is that you’re writing a column on cuddling. Why, you don’t believe me? Well, it’s, um, I don’t know, it’s not very lady whistleblower like, is it? In fact, it sounds like a total snooze.
And also, you barely said a word to me last night, and then you were gone before I woke up, and you and I both know that that never happens, which is why… I get the feeling that you’re avoiding me. What? Gwen, you’re my best friend. Why would I be avoiding you? Because of Dimitri. Dimitri, what about him? Ever since I said yes to his proposal, you’ve been…
distant. And I know you’re not a fan of him, but… Gwenny, I told you, I’ve been working my little tooth shop, burning the midnight oil. I’m not avoiding you.
Okay, I… I know, I just, oh, I suppose I’m just being a bit paranoid is all. It’s just I haven’t heard from Dimitri today, which is a bit odd, don’t you think? Given that we, we just got engaged.
I made a
Gwenny, I have a confession to make.
The reason you haven’t heard from Dimitri is because… He’s been with me.
So you don’t trust Dimitri? Why would I? And why would you? We both know he and his mother are thick as thieves. It wouldn’t surprise me if he’s agreed to carry out her nefarious plan, spying with that bitch from afar. What you’re saying is you think we’re all still in danger. Which is why right now, Cooler Heads must prevail.
We need to put aside our differences and deal with our nephew. How do I know this isn’t some 3D chess move designed to get me to let my guard down? Well, you’re just going to have to trust me. Sounds like a foolish enterprise to me. Oh, for God’s sake, this was your idea. Yes, I know. But, I meant it. So did I.
Look. Why don’t we shake on
it? Okay. Fine. Great. Wonderful. Now, let’s figure out, together, how to deal with that chip off the old block Dimitri von Luischner. I think I know exactly where to start.
Gabby, put the gun down. You’re not gonna shoot me, okay? You don’t have it in you. Is that what you think? Oh, oh, you don’t remember. You’re not the first ex husband that I, that I would shoot and kill. Maybe you and Nick Fallon can compare notes where you’re burning it out. Okay, hey, hey. You don’t have to do this, okay?
You’re gonna end up in prison. Orange jumpsuit, solitary confinement. Been there, done that. You have left me no choice, thanks to you. Because you attacked Seven at our engagement party. Who’s to say you won’t do it at our wedding? Because I won’t. You have my word. Your word? Your word is crap. It is meaningless.
You loved me once, Gabby. Remember the great times we had together? I was a fool to even give you the time of day. Let alone love you, you Sick bastard. But you know what? I do love Stefan. With all my heart. He is the love of my life. And I will do anything to protect him.
Gabby, just listen to me. This isn’t necessary. I’m not going to go after Stefan. As much as I’m still in love with you, I get that we’re over. I know that now. Oh yeah? Since when? Since my sister came to visit me at the police station. Jingwen made me face some hard truths. Including the fact that I shouldn’t throw my life away over you.
Admittedly, it’s difficult to hear, but she’s really smart, and she’s also right. So, I’ve decided to move on with my life. I’m gonna stop ruminating over the past, pining over you. Believe it or not, I even hired a matchmaker. Matchmaker? Have a look at my laptop. I, I, I filled out a profile on everything.
I don’t recall you being a cat lover. You’ve listed Lisbon as your home away from home. I, I never seen you reading the Wall Street Journal. I’m looking for someone who’s a little sophisticated. Maybe. And I’ve visited Portugal, it’s one of my favorite countries. And I even fed a stray cat for a little while when I was in college.
I’m trying to cast a wide net, okay? God help the woman that you do catch. But I think the evidence is convincing. No? No, I’m trying to move on from you. And Gabby, I promise, I swear, I’ve come to my senses about you. I’ve accepted that you don’t love me and you never will. And I’m not going to come between you and Stefan.
So you just expect me to hand over a portion of my inheritance to you? Well, I think it’s only fair, Dimitri, that given that safeguarding your secret comes at a great cost to me. You see, Gwen is my friend and former cellmate, and now I have to lie to her. Right. I’m sure that’s gonna be a real hardship for you.
You snide son of a bitch. You know what’s a real hardship for me? Is being separated from my daughter. And if I have any hope of getting custody of her, I’m gonna need all the power and money I can get my hands on. Fine. How much money do you need? Do you have a number in mind? A number? How long is a piece of string?
Just tell me how much you need, dammit. Well, I figured since your mother’s gone AWOL, I can just have her piece of the pie. I don’t think Mommy Dearest will be too keen on that. Well, Mommy Dearest shouldn’t have tried to kill Stuffin. Or drugged me and EJ and… Cruelly hell dust amongst aging bottles of e nil.
Oh, but you weren’t in on that, were you, sweetie? Absolutely not. Oh, well good. Then, uh, if Megan Haddon had been so disappointing, I mean, some say she was rotten, conniving, evil sister, um, she could have stayed here and enjoyed all her money, but I’ll be happy to enjoy it for her.
So, Nephew, do we have a deal? Ah, there he is, our bon
vivant nephew, Dimitri. You know, your uncle and I, we were just talking about how nice it’s been getting to know you, and how we hope that you Stay in touch. Stay in touch. Are you two going somewhere? No, you are. Pack your bags and get the hell out of our house.
So, wait. Why were you with Dimitri? Okay, remember how I told you I was going to go back to his house to snoop around, play detective? Napoleon, according to plan, I was going to break out my sexy fishnet police costume and make a citizen dressed. Yes, because you thought that Dimitri had some sort of an ulterior motive for wanting to marry me, because you wouldn’t shut up about it, which was getting very tiresome, by the way, so…
I was quite relieved when last night you didn’t say anything about it, and I assume that that means you came up empty handed. You did, right? Empty handed?
Right. But before I could leave, Dimitri caught me in his room. Oh my god! Yeah, yeah, it was pretty tense at first. Then we went at it real hard, lots of back and forth, like two animals in the wild. Oh my, you mean it got physical? Yeah, I mean, it wasn’t knock down, drag out, but it was real rough. No broken bones or anything, no.
But, uh, have you two made up? I mean, is he, is he okay? Are you okay? I think so. I mean, my lower back is… Uh, never mind. Gwenny, listen, all of this is to say… that Dmitri convinced me how much marrying you means to him.
I know I have my reservations because I am so protective of you.
I have decided to give this marriage my full blessing.
I told Kristen, I said, you know, stop, stop with the games. And then I said… Out of, out of anger, out of panic, out of frustration that maybe I should kill her. Okay. Listen, my brother knows that he did a stupid thing. But it was born out of fear and desperation. You know, he believed that Kristen was gonna run off with his daughter and that he’d never see her again.
Okay, well that doesn’t give him the right to threaten murder. With a gun. Might I add a gun that he stole from his father? Listen, Brady knows what he did was wrong. That’s why he’s here coming clean. He’s not a violent criminal. He’s just a dad who loves his kid very deeply, okay? Detective, listen, I’m mortified by my behavior, okay?
I really, really am. And it was driven by the fact that I thought I was going to lose my daughter. But out of panic, and out of anger, and out of frustration, I profoundly regret it. So what do you say? We let this one go. Absolutely not.
I’ve heard this, I have heard all of this before, Lee, sorry, you probably don’t remember, but when you were signing those divorce papers, you made it seem like you were taking the high road, like you were bowing out gracefully. I even thought that we could end up friends. But then you had to go and plot the murder of my fiancé!
Look, I’m not saying I had any part in what happened to Stefan, but I will admit that I wasn’t quite as ready to let you go as I thought. Of course, I wanted to do the right thing. I wanted you to be happy. But in hindsight, I was a wreck. I was a heartbroken, miserable wreck. And it overwhelmed me. I couldn’t recognize myself anymore.
That, that justifies this? Oh god, if I was, if I just became homicidal every time that I was heartbroken Please, just let me finish. I, I, I’m in a much better place now. Heartbroken, sure. But the misery’s starting to let up a little. And who knows, if you let me live, I’m supposed to go on a date this evening.
And if I meet the right person, and we’re a good match, then maybe I’ll be able to move on from you. Not maybe, not maybe. I will. I must. I finally believe it’s possible. I’ve finally come to grips with reality. Fine. Fine! Go. On your date, Liv. But let me tell you something. I still do not trust you. And if you ever come after me or my husband again, I will pump you so full of lead, they will not be able to identify your corpse.
Oh, good luck tonight.
Sorry, Mr. Black, you threatened to kill someone while brandishing a loaded firearm. He was trying to It doesn’t matter what he was trying to do. It was a felony offense. The threat was made in the heat of the moment. Kristen had kidnapped his daughter. Not according to his daughter. She is a child who is trying to protect her mother.
Listen, this is all just a messy family dispute that got blown way out of proportion, and it can all be resolved without the police. Yeah, see, this is where I disagree with you. Uh, look, detective, I have dinner plans, so let’s just wrap this up. Uh huh. So, take Mr. Black down for booking. What? You can’t do that.
I just did, and when you’re done with Mr. Black, get a statement from Kristen DeMera. I’m sure she’ll have plenty to say. Oh.
Well, this is an interesting little… Plot twist? So you two are actually in agreement for once? In the face of a common enemy, EJ and I spoke and we decided to call a truce. If by common enemy you’re referring to my mother, well then I completely understand. But as I was just telling Aunt Kristen here, I had no prior knowledge of her schemes.
Why should we believe that? Because I’m telling the truth. I would never condone violence towards my own family. Sorry, Dimitri, but your impassioned protestations notwithstanding, we don’t trust you. Simple as that. Since for all we know, you and your mother could still be in cahoots. So I’d suggest you get out your suitcase and start packing.
All right, brothers. Brothers, let’s just all take a mindful pause. I think that we are, uh, being a tad unfair to Dimitri here. I’m assuming he’s guilty by association, not to mention Dimitri has shares at DiMera, as do I. And you know that, Peter. Will always vote with me. So do you really want to alienate a big chunk of your voting block?
Well, sister, I believe that’s a moot point since now Stephan and I are working together. Oh, you sure about that? I can be very persuasive, especially when I want something very badly. I could just, um… Talk to Lee Shin and Steven and… Kristen, what are you saying? I’ll be indirect. What I’m trying to say is now that you two have called a truce, I think it’s in all our best interest that we stick together as a family.
I know this is going to sound a little crazy, but, uh, I think we should give it the old college try.
Well, that’s quite the 180. I have your blessing.
Of course you do. You’re my best friend. My day one, always. If you’re happy, I’m happy. I’m really quite chuffed, Matty. I am. I have to say, I’m a bit surprised. I mean, when you have it in for someone, it’s very hard to change your mind. I mean, let’s be honest, you are a petty little twat sometimes, aren’t you?
Well, I’m not going to argue with that. The thing is, I… I saw another side of Dimitri. He’s not the James Bond villain I thought he was. Wow. He must have really worked his magic to make you flip like this. You could say that.
Hold the phone. Hang on. When Dimitri caught you in his bedroom, that was yesterday. So, why were you hanging out with him today?
Yeah, I am glad you asked why I was with Dimitri today. Because I was just about to tell you my beautiful friend slash bride to be. Once, I was on board with the wedding. Your groom shared with me a capital S secret. What kind of secret? Well, it’s really more of a surprise. For you. For the wedding. That’s why you haven’t heard from Dimitri.
We’ve been planning it today. Oh! Oh,
right, okay. Well, I suppose that explains the radio silence, then. Hence why I didn’t tell you last night that I ran into Dimitri. I was trying to keep his secret… secret. So, please, don’t let him know that you know that we’re planning something. Yeah, I know. Lips are sealed. Pinky promise? Oh, Matty, I am so, so grateful that you’ve come around.
You don’t even know. I mean, it means the world to me that my best friend and my husband to be are actually getting along. You have no idea how happy you’ve made me.
Why are you suddenly so protective of Dimitri? What gifts? Money, Jay. Can’t you figure it out? It’s what father would have wanted. Solidarity. Family meant everything to him, as we all know. Now, I understand that you don’t trust Dimitri. But, I am willing to vouch for him. Fine. But if one of us ends up dead because of him, that’s on you.
I can live with that. Stefan, we agreed. I know. We don’t have a choice. Demetri, you can stay. For now. Dammit, Stefan, you don’t get to decide. Barstin and I decided, and you’re outnumbered, brother. This is insane. You will regret this, both of you. Thank you, Uncle Stefan. And, uh, you too, Aunt Kristen. Thank you for sticking up for me.
Oh, it’s my pleasure. And I’m sure you’ll find a way to pay me back.
Oh, you didn’t even bring me over out there. What’s going on? Uh, why don’t we go upstairs? I’ll explain everything. So, where have you been? Uh, I’ll explain that later when we’re alone. Yeah, I just sat down. How will I know what she looks like? Okay, I’ll be on the lookout for a woman with long, dark hair, wearing a blue dress.
Yeah, thanks again.
You’ve gotta be kidding me.
Detective Hunter, what can I do for you? I’m here to ask you about an incident that occurred between you and Mr. Black. All right, listen. I did not, nor would I ever, kidnap my own daughter. Yes, Rachel said the same thing. Well, then why are you here? Because she also said that Mr. Black threatened you with a gun.
Well, I wish to hell you would have kept your mouth shut. You know, the whole, you have the right to remain silent thing. No, I’m sorry, Belle. I’m grateful that you got me out on bail so quickly. Yeah, well, this is going to be a tough one, Brady. You really made my whole case a whole lot harder. Sis, I’m not really gonna go to prison, am I?
You heard Trask. She’s on a warpath. So if Kristen decides to press charges, yeah, there’s a very good chance you could go to prison.
