THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Here, lift up a little bit. There we go. Yeah. Can I, can I get you another pillow, you know, or some water, or, you know, I’m gonna, I’m gonna get you a snack. Um, you know what you could do? You could go and get a chill pill, and then you can take it yourself. You just scared the bejesus out of me, so excuse me if I’m not all chill.
You know, next time that you, you know, get a lead on a dangerous situation, I don’t know, maybe you can give me a call? Fair enough. But for the record, baby, I’m fine. You heard Kayla. Whatever sedative Nurse King gave me has been flushed out of my system. Alright. So we’re all good. Glad to hear it so I can finally take you back to prison.
Ah, there you go. I’m so relieved. Alana’s gonna be okay. I still can’t believe that she tracked down my dad. He’s, he’s actually alive. I know. She’s somewhat of a hero, isn’t she? She is, but I swear when Marlena wheeled my dad out of that elevator, I thought I was saying things. I bet you did. I was until I hugged him.
I felt him in my arms. I let myself believe it was real. I just wish that he knew who I was. Do you think that he’s going to get his memory back at some point? I’m hopeful, yes. Your father’s head injury was not severe. Which means that the amnesia should be temporary. Should be. Are you saying that there’s a chance that my dad will never remember us?
Oh, my love. Can’t believe you’re really here.
Thought I’d lost you forever.
No. Abraham. You’re awake.
How do you feel? Strange. Tired. Well, it’s no wonder you’ve been through so much. Went in the hospital. Mm hmm. You were drugged, but… It’s, uh… The doctors, they’re getting that stuff right out of your system. I was drugged. How did, how did, how did that happen? Well, it’s a long story, but you know what?
I think it’s best that you just relax for now, okay? And I will, I will tell you, I will answer all your questions when you feel a little better. Uh, I have, I have, uh, two questions. They can’t wait, they can’t wait. Yeah, of course, of course. What do you want to know? Forgive me. Who are you? And
where’s my wife?
Hello, Miss King. Oh, my hands! Oh,
what are you doing here? Well, I came to check on you. I wanted to see how you’re doing since I saw you this morning. I, I saw you this morning? Yes, don’t you remember seeing me? You do know who I am, right? How could I not know who you are? You’re just the queen diva of my favorite soap opera.
Wait, wait, wait. Ugh, no, we can’t do this! Well, we seem to be doing a pretty good job so far. No, dum dum Gwenny! We can’t do this to her! Ugh, here we go again. Yes, here we go again! I am feeling guiltier than ever! I am her best friend, you’re her groom! And here we are, hooking up the night before your marriage!
I wish things could be different, Leo, I really do. I wish that we could be together, out in the open. But, as you also know, if I want this inheritance Yeah, yeah, you have to marry her before you’re over the hill. Before I turn 40. Same thing. And look, before I turn thirty five… Okay, forty. Okay, forty five! I have to rid myself of this guilt I have towards the sweetest person I know!
Well, definitely not the sweetest, but certainly the most loyal, or I, will inherit a straitjacket. So what do you say? That this affair, as thrilling and wonderful as it is, it… It has to end. Oh, you don’t mean that. Did I not just explain that I, who have fought hating myself my entire life for being a petty little twat, as Gwen recently called me, although she said it in a light hearted and affectionate way because she loves me and I love her, which is why I am so tortured
and now losing the Don’t do that. You know how much I How much you what? Oh, oh. Lordy, Lordy and lordy. Tomorrow. I married Gwen tonight, baby. I am all yours. God, I can’t believe
I never forgot my phone. Like sands through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives. I
didn’t realize that my dad’s amnesia could be permanent. Well, that’s rarely the case, but we just can’t rule out the possibility. Okay, well… Is there something that we can do to increase his chances of him recovering his memories? I mean… Well, I mean, for starters, we are flushing the drugs out of his system.
And then we’re gonna let his brain have some time to heal. And sometimes the memories just come back on their own. And if that doesn’t happen, then we will explore the other options. Possibly, uh, hypnotherapy or even occupational therapy. Like I had when I was a kid. Right. But I think what’s going to help your dad the most is he has your tremendous support of family and friends Well, I’ll be there for him as much as he needs me to be But I just can’t help but wonder if If what?
Maybe somehow This is all my fault. Abraham,
I know your mind is all jumbled up right now, but please believe me, okay? I am your wife, and I love you very much. I, I, I, I don’t even know you. Uh, well, uh, look, uh, look. It says it right there. Paulina Price. I’m your wife. That’s me. That, that, uh, that other woman? That was Nurse Whitley King. She was your nurse here at the hospital.
She pretended to be me and she kidnapped you. Plucked you right out of your hospital bed. Worst of all, she tricked us into thinking you were dead. Why, why, why would she do that? I don’t know, but clearly that woman is completely off her rocker. Miss King? Oh, please, call me Whitley. We’re practically family, after all.
I think you’re confused. Oh, I know that we’re not actually family. I’ve just spent so many years watching the story of your life.
Exactly. Who do you think I am? Oh, well, I know who you are. You are Charlemagne Delacroix from Body and Soul. Um, actually, that’s a fictional character. I’m Dr. Marlena Evans. We worked together at the hospital. Um, until recently, you, you were a nurse there. And you were a patient of mine. Patient.
I’m a psychiatrist. I’d like to help you if you’ll let me.
Well, Leo. Am I doing this? Or should I put my clothes back on and leave you here? Finish up all by your lonesome.
I suppose it would be a shame to let all this gratuitous nudity go to waste. Oh dear, what’s going on
Gwen, darling! You’re back! I thought you were going to the office. I forgot my phone. Oh, mother of rotten luck. For you, I mean. I’m so sorry you had to come all the way back here. You should have texted me and I would have… Oh, if you didn’t have your phone, it’s hard to text about a forgotten phone without a phone, right?
Are you quite finished? Yeah, I’m done. So how’s the planning going? You know, like the two of you said that you were going to do. Well, we had been working on the surprise for your wedding and we got sidetracked. Yes, I can see that. Care to explain what’s happened to my fiancé’s clothes?
Sorry to barge in on you, Mrs. Grant. Allow me to introduce myself. I’m Sam Gerrard with the U. S. Marshal’s Office. You know, you caused quite a stir with your disappearance. If I may. She was knocked out and held against her will. I’m well aware. I was with Detective Hunter and the former commissioner when they found her at the docks.
I heard you tracked my monitor. Thank you for helping them find me. Just doing my job, ma’am. Which also includes taking you back to Maryland. And now that you’re feeling better, I’m afraid we have to leave right away. I’m sorry. I can’t let you do that.
Why on earth would you think that you have anything to do with your father’s amnesia? Well, Claire’s always talking about karma and karmic payback. And I’m just wondering if what I did a couple of years ago might have caused what happened to my dad. Uh, no. Well, you don’t even know what I’m talking about.
Maybe you do. Okay, okay. Why don’t you tell me? Well, when Ciara lost her memory, I started dating her again. Even though she didn’t remember Ben. I mean, we almost got married. And that’s, well, that’s similar to what Nurse Whitley did to my dad. Okay, okay, you need to listen to me for a second, okay? Nurse Whitley kidnapped and manipulated your father.
She drugged him and made all of us believe that he was dead. There is no way that any of that is similar to what you did. And aside from all that, it’s not the way the universe works. You don’t believe in karma? I think I’m of two minds about it, really. I mean, I have seen so many good people have really bad things happen to them.
And also the opposite. But you know what? I do believe that being a good person is its own reward, and the kindness and decency can be contagious. You, Theo, are a good person, and I believe No, I know that the only people responsible for your dad’s condition are Colin Bedford and Whitley Kate.
I’d like to talk about what happened at your apartment this morning. You know, I’m awfully tired. I think we should talk about it some other time. No, that’s not a good idea. We made a breakthrough already, and it’s important that we continue.
Look, otherwise I’m afraid that you may end up harming yourself or someone else. Why would you say that? Because of what happened with Abe. Look, I know it wasn’t your intention, but Abe was hurt by what you did. So was his family.
You’re saying it’s true. That I was kidnapped by Paulina. Nurse Whitley. You were kidnapped by Nurse Whitley.
If Whitley kidnapped me, then that explains why she would never, ever let me leave the apartment. She said, she said that I was in danger, that, that a man attacked me. Uh, yes, well, that part is true. It’s why, it’s why you were in the hospital the first time. A man named Colin Bedford, very bad man, he knocked you out in my daughter’s bakery.
Do you remember that? All I remember is, uh, is waking up in the hospital and Chanel was beside me. Yes, my daughter, Chanel, she owns the bakery. And when you woke up, she went to go find me. And, uh, a woman came by. Yeah, that was your nurse. She took advantage of your confused state. But at home she, she showed me our wedding picture.
And she was, she was definitely in it. It must have been a fake! Photoshopped!
See? See? This is our real wedding picture. You and me. Oh, what a day it was. The day we became husband and wife. Oh, one of the happiest of my life. And you, you said the same thing. Do, do you recognize us? Does it seem at all familiar? Wait a minute, wait a minute. I
do remember you now.
Agent Grant, I understand that you’d like to spend more time with your wife. But, she was given furlough to attend her father’s funeral. Who, as it turns out, is actually still alive. That’s my point. And she thought she lost her dad and she’s been granted a miracle. Can’t you give her a few days to spend with her dad?
I mean, at least until he’s out of the hospital. My hands are tied. It’s not my call. Yeah, but you can make a plea on her behalf. I mean, her father has lost his memory, and spending time with his daughter could help him regain it. A case of amnesia? After a miraculous return from the dead? Sounds like something from Body and Soul.
You know, the soap opera? Uh, not that I’m a big fan. The Mrs. makes me watch. From time to time. Is there any way that you can arrange for me to stay here? Just a little longer? I sympathize with you, Mrs. Grant, but my hands are tied. We were already booked on the next flight.
Can I at least say goodbye to my father before we go?
Oh, Abraham! I’m so relieved! Oh, you finally got your memory back! It’s not what I meant.
Not what you meant? What? What do you mean, you don’t remember me? I do, from my dream. I, I dreamed that I was jumping the broom with my bride, and it was you. I saw it, clear as day. Of course you did, because even though your mind had lost all love, your Your heart was trying to remind you because I am still in there in your heart, aren’t I?
Again, I’m, I’m sorry. I’m sorry. I, uh, other than a couple of moments from the wedding, I honestly don’t know who you are. Heh. I certainly don’t remember our love.
Dad, you’re awake. Hey, hey there.
You’re my son, Brandon, right? No, um, no, I’m Theo.
Oh, that can’t be. I’ve seen Theo. You’re not him. Honey, you’ve been spending time with an imposter. Someone pretending to be Theo. It was arranged by Whitley. It was just another one of her deceptions.
I respect and admire Mayor Carver. I would never hurt him. I just, I just wanted to keep him safe. I, I didn’t want him to end up like, like your husband.
I know you blame yourself for his death. I think that’s why you tried to replace him with Abe. Because it would mean, if you could, that terrible tragedy never would have happened.
Look at me.
You’re not Paulina Price. You’re Whitley King.
But I don’t want to be Whitley King. It, it, Whitley King, it means I killed my husband. It means I’m an awful person. It means I have nothing to live for.
Abraham, the young man who you thought was your son, that was an actor. Whitley hired an actor named Jerry Prentiss to pretend to be Thiel. That’s right. I remember. I saw Jerry’s name in the credits of Body and Soul. And now that you’ve seen your real son in person, well, does that trigger any other memories?
No. No, it doesn’t.
Oh. Oh. Oh, my love, there must be something to help you remember. Ah.
Well, this all must seem rather strange, Gwen, but I assure you there is a perfectly reasonable explanation. I’m waiting. Well, I… Dimitri does not have a proper suit for tomorrow, so I convinced him to try on one of mine. You have plenty of seats. Yeah, but they’re also blah. I told him he needed something special, something with a little pizzazz.
You know, after all, this is a once in a lifetime event. So, he needs something more like… this. Yeah. Not really your cup of tea, is it, Dmitri? Yes, I know, but with the wedding only hours away, I was… desperate. He was just about to try this on, which would explain his state of undress. Mm. Mm mm. Yep, sorry, Matty, I’m not buying it.
You see, I know what’s really going on here.
No more lies, Matty. But I just told you that I You wanted Dimitri to get married in something pizzazzy. Exactly! Come on! You honestly thought that I would believe that he would fit into one of your smedium suits. This one’s a woman’s large. It doesn’t matter what size it is. You didn’t want to see Dimitri in it, you wanted to see him out of it.
What are you suggesting? That you wanted to see my fiancé in his underwear. Okay.
You got me. Maybe I did wanna… Coggle, DVL, and his BVDs. And now I’m so embarrassed for having a crush on a straight man. Which is kind of a pattern for me. Although I do get crushes on gay men, but that’s usually when they’re plausible. You’re right, you’re right. Um, no one needs to know what a screw up I am.
Uh, Dimitri? I apologize for putting you through that. Cheap trick. All is forgiven. Thank you for understanding. And Gwenny, thank you for knowing me so well and for putting up with me anyway. Yes, you are my BFF, aren’t you forget this. After tomorrow, this man is all mine.
Whitley, you mustn’t think that way. Like, I know things seem bleak at the moment, but when you get the help you need, you’ll be able to let go of this terrible guilt you’re feeling. My precious husband. He was so good to me. He was so sweet. If only I’d known that you didn’t.
So you couldn’t help him?
He’s probably looking down at me from having such shame at the person that I’ve become.
He probably doesn’t even recognize me. I don’t even recognize myself.
I just got off the phone with Steve. He and John are on their way home with Jerry Prentiss. Please tell them that I said thank you. I’d do it myself, but the U. S. Marshal has insisted that Lonnie go back to prison immediately. That’s gonna be rough on her. My gosh, she just got her dad back. At least he’s allowing her to say her goodbyes.
You remember Lani? Of course. You’re the woman who came to rescue me. You came to the apartment.
And you told me you were my daughter. That’s right. What about before that? Any memories of her prior to your attack? No. I’m so sorry. I wish I could remember. I just, I just can’t. That’s okay, Dad. Give yourself time. I am just so glad we have you back. You know, the way you stood up to Whitley. You were so brave.
That’s our baby girl. The bravest woman I know. I wonder where I get that from.
Oh. I’ll help you. Hey. How’s it going in here? Dad’s awake. So happy to see that. Um, I’m sorry. Who are
you? Um, I’m Lonnie’s husband, Eli. I have son in law. And friend. Hey, we’re, we’re, we’re just so relieved and we’re happy that you’re back. We missed you. Lani and I, Paulina, Theo. Your grandkids.
We love you.
Thank you for your kindness.
I hate to cut things short, but our time is up. We gotta go.
But Abraham just woke up! Are you sure you have to go right this minute? We don’t have a choice. Where are you off to? Um, Eli and I, we, we live in Maryland. With our twins Jules and Carver. And the Grandfather. Yes, yes, and all those babies, they are the cutest little angels. Oh wait, hold on, hold on, I got a picture right here.
I’ll show you. Oh, look, Carver, Carver here. He is your namesake. Mm hmm. What do you know? I hear these are, these are beautiful children. Thank you. No wonder you don’t want to be away from them very long.
Yes, it’s been very difficult being separated from them. And mom will explain that to you later. But dad, I… I have some other obligations that I have to fulfill. So it’ll be a while before I can come back. But I promise you, I will come back and visit soon. So in the meantime, know that I love you with all my heart.
And I’ll be thinking about you. And looking forward to when we can all be back together.
Goodbye, honey. I
too. Thank you, thank you for helping to bring Abe back to us. We couldn’t have done it without you. Oh, I love you, baby girl. I’m just so grateful I could help. I love you. And you.
Why are you being so kind to me, Dr. Evans? I know that Abe is your good friend. He is. But you’re in a lot of pain and I would like to help you get through it. Oh, what’s the point? I’m just going to end up in prison, right? Well, I don’t know about that. But I do know that you’ve been through a terrible trauma.
And I want to make sure there is someone to help you get through that. I don’t deserve help. I hurt so many people. How in the world am I going to make up for that?
Well, now that you have your phone and that’s all sorted, are you heading back to the office? Um, I think, um, I’ll just stay in here now. Get all the rest I can before the big day, but not be so rested where you and I can’t celebrate a bit on my last night of freedom. Of course, party time. In that case, I’ll take my leave.
I have some shopping to do. Need to find myself an appropriate suit. Don’t listen to Matty, just wear any suit. I’m sure it’d be perfect. You are gonna look dashing no matter what. True that. Alright, thank you Leo. You too. Be sure to have a wonderful night. And to you, my beautiful bride to be, I’m counting down the moments until you walk down that aisle for me.
As am I, my love. I can’t wait.
I’m gonna miss you so much. Same. But, it’s only six months until I’m up for Pearl. Right, and hopefully, by the time you get back, that’ll be as old as I’ll forget. I’m counting on him. You’ll keep me posted? Of course. Oh. Next time that we come back home, it’ll be for good.
Alright. We’re ready.
Hello, Abe? You probably don’t remember me, but I’m Dr. Kayla Johnson. Were you my doctor from before? Yes, I was. But I’m also a very close friend of yours. And so is my husband, Steve.
I’m sorry. Doesn’t ring a bell. That’s okay. It’ll come to you. The important thing is to not put too much pressure on yourself.
It’s very frustrating, not being able to recognize my family. Well, they understand. Believe me, they are just so relieved and happy that you are alive and well. In fact, this whole town just loves you so much, and they’re rooting for you. Whitney, you deserve help. And you’re going to get it. You’re not alone.
Paulina, how is Abe? Physically, he is just fine. But, when he opened his eyes, he asked for you, Whitley. I did my best to set him straight, but my husband looks into my eyes and he doesn’t remember me. He doesn’t know me. His own wife. He doesn’t remember his children. I’m so sorry. I’m so sorry. I know that I put all of you through hell.
If there’s anything I can do to help… Oh! Oh! You can shut your damn mouth! I don’t want to hear anything that you have to say!
Paulina. We should go. Now. Fine, fine. I’ll go. But I just want this bitch to know that she can’t undo all the damage that she’s, she’s caused with just, I’m sorry. It’s going to take a hell of a lot more than that. Well, hell
I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. All I have to do is fake a marriage. For an entire year.
But then I get my inheritance.
And in the meantime, I see no reason why I should have to give up Leo.
Oh, Matty. Can you believe it? Tomorrow, I’m going to marry a man that I absolutely adore. And he adores me back.
Look, I know that… I know you had your doubts about Dimitri in the beginning, but… I think now you can see how very right we are for each other. And how happy he makes me.
I do. And that makes me happy.
Matty, it means so much to me that you’ve come around. Honestly, without your blessing, I don’t think, I don’t think I’d be able to go through with this wedding. That’s how important you are to me.
And you to me.
don’t you too someday. I know it. You’re gonna meet the most amazing guy who’s going to love you just as much as Dimitri loves me. And then we’re both gonna have our happily ever after. Just like we’ve dreamed of.
