THIS STILL NEEDS EXTENSIVE EDITING!
Oh, wow. You’re not the last person I expected to see knocking at my door. Is Eric here? No, he’s out. I came to talk to you alone.
Why? What’s going on? I recently told you that you owe me a favor. I like to think of it more like extortion, you know. I do whatever it is you say I need to do, or you tell Eric that he’s the father of Nicole’s family. I don’t care what you call it, but your first payment is due today.
Wow, you have an odd look on your face. What happened? It’s
um, it’s Victor. Nicole, he’s dead.
Sean? You alone? I was until you showed up. Um… Hey, uh, I heard about Victor. I’m real sorry. Uh, by the looks of it, you heard too. What was your first clue, hmm?
Wow, so you’re really considering accepting Xander’s proposal? Yeah, I told him I needed some time to think about it, but so far I haven’t really found any reason to say no.
How long have you been standing there? Just long enough.
Oh, Maggie, are you in here?
pregnant! Extends through the hourglass. So are the days of our lives.
Hello, Xander. Hello, Xander, that That’s it, look at you, you’re Yeah, I know. I’m just pregnant. Like, really pregnant. How am I just finding out about this? Well, I, I just got here. I had to be with my mom. Right, Sarah, but there are these things called telephones. Or, if that was too personal, you could have dropped me an email.
Having your baby. All the best, Sarah. You know. Will you just keep it down a little bit? Mom’s trying to rest. She’s really not doing okay. It’s alright. You know, I know how much Maggie loved Hector. Hey. I know that you did too. I’m really sorry for your loss. Okay, I’ll keep it in my voice now. But are you kidding me right now?
Offering me… Condolences? Why don’t you try to explain why you didn’t tell me that you’re going to have my baby?
You don’t used to spy on people. Chloe, I’m not, I wasn’t spying on you, okay? You need time to consider, consider Xander’s proposal. You’re going to consider marrying a kidnapping Neanderthal. A Neanderthal that left you with a drug lord to die. Okay, I’m going to leave you two to talk. No, no, don’t. This is not going to take long.
This is none of your business. Be honest with me. Is he, is he drugging you or something? Is that why you can’t remember how he treats women? Oh, Brady, come on. Don’t. Not just women, not just women. I mean, that’s how he treats everyone. He’s inherently violent. You know, I went to go talk to him as an adult to apologize for, for, for kissing you.
He didn’t know that. Yeah, and his immediate response was to hit me. He hit me, all right? That’s who he is and that’s how he rolls, hello? My God, you two. Victor is dead. And all you can find to do is fight about me?
Where’s Belle? Does she know? What, that I’m here drinking? I don’t know. I mean, why don’t you go find her and tell her? No. Does she know what happened to Victor? Hey, what do you think? I mean, doesn’t everybody know by now? Well, and… Why isn’t she here with you? It doesn’t, it doesn’t matter. I mean, he’s dead, he’s dead one way or the other.
Just an observation. You don’t seem to be taking this very well. Well, that’s an astute observation. And no, I’m not taking this well, and I’m… You know what, as a matter of fact, I’m taking this very badly because this is my fault. Victor died in the plane crash. How can this possibly be your fault? Look, he was on that plane because I put my dad, my dad, his son, in a coma.
And then he had to spend the last four months of his life miserable because of me, and now… Look, and now he’s dead because of me. That doesn’t even make sense. Hey, who the hell asked you, huh? I’m sorry, I I I shouldn’t have blurted it out like that, I… I was pretty shocked myself. It’s okay, I… I had to know, I I had to find out.
What happened? Well, he was flying back from Greece and his, his plane went down. Oh my God, that’s horrible. Yeah. And
I can’t believe this is hitting me so hard. Well, it’s shocking. And you would hope at his age, he could have died peacefully. And you were also married to him. I’m sure that there were some good memories from that time. No, actually there weren’t. We weren’t exactly a love match.
For God’s sake, Victor. The fashion show is for charity. It would make you look good if I did it. I will not have you burying your assets in public. Why don’t you just go all the way and have me branded? Exclusive property of Victor Kiriakis. Don’t think I haven’t considered it. Bastard. Murderer. You live to make me miserable.
It’s what you richly deserve. I can’t believe the things you said to me still sting after all these years. Ugh. I wonder if those two have caught up in the great beyond yet. Who needs a devil when you can torment each other for the rest of eternity? God, they’d love to hate each other. Mm hmm.
Maybe you haven’t heard, but Abe Carver is going to resume his duties as mayor. Abe got his memory back? No, it’s a scam. He’s going to be mayor just long enough to appoint his successor, Paulina. What? And how the hell does that woman qualify? I have no idea, but it is definitely happening, and it puts me in an awkward position.
I went after Paulina and Chanel pretty hard over what happened to your parents. And now you think she’s going to fire you? Yeah, wouldn’t you? I mean, that woman HATES me, and she would love for the chance to show me how much. You know what I mean, payback’s a bitch. You’re damn right. So how are you gonna fend her off?
With a headline grabbing case and a high profile defendant. Sounds like a plan. I already have both, actually. The attempt on Stefan DiMera’s life and the man behind it. Lee Shin. Well, that sounds surefire if you had any proof. But, didn’t you already come up short handed trying to do that? Yeah, I tried. And I failed miserably.
As you already know. But if no proof is the one thing standing in my way, then… I’m not too worried about that. Or no? No. Because that’s where you come in.
Sean, uh, how about we get some air? Uh, this feels just like air to me. Dammit Sean, this is a public place, and you were suspended for drinking. Okay, but didn’t you hear? Didn’t you hear that, uh, when I came back from my suspension, I got promoted, so, now, I am the police commissioner, and, I’m thinking that, hey, maybe if I keep this up, they’re gonna make me mayor.
If you keep this up, you could lose Bell. Oh, don’t you, don’t you have a baby on the way or something? I mean, here, actually. I have a suggestion. How about you go to your soon to be baby mama, and you go see if she has any Any cravings and get the hell out of here, okay?
Can I get you anything? Any… Any cravings? Mm hmm. Mm hmm. Name it. Three dry martinis. I know I can’t, so you are going to have to drink enough for both of us. I’ll do what I can.
He, oh, Victor was such a son of a bitch. No argument there. He treated me like dirt. No, in fact, worse. He treated me like… Well, like, I deserved. But, um, I’m gonna miss him. I can’t think about Salem without him. I know. He was so damned… Alive. And funny.
You know, I was infuriated because he would say something awful to me, and then I had to steal myself not to laugh. And I’m sure you never said anything scathing back to him. Oh, I tried. But I just, I was no match for him.
And I’m sure you’re really enjoying me talking about my ex husband. I don’t mind. In fact, I don’t mind you going on and on about anything. Yeah? You sure about that? Nicole, you are a femme formidable. You don’t bring much tranquility, domestic tranquility, to the table, but I’m never bored. Ever even close.
Let’s get married. What? Let’s get married. Uh, we’re not getting married. Now. Now? Why? I don’t know. Well, because we haven’t planned anything yet. We don’t even know where we’re getting married. None, none of that matters. What matters is that we get married as soon as possible and live every day as if it was our last.
Let’s take everything we’ve learned from our collective disastrous marriages and apply the odds. Make it work. For starters… I’ll stop being an imperious jerk. And you… Yes? You stay exactly the same.
we could have the time of our lives.
I’m not a detective, Melinda. How am I supposed to dig up evidence on Shin whenever you and your whole office couldn’t? I don’t need you to be a detective. I need your talents as a lawyer. Lee’s lawyer, specifically. Look, now I really don’t understand you. If I take on… Shin, I’m gonna do everything in my power to get him acquitted, I don’t understand how that helps you.
You’re right. It won’t. Come on, Peterson. Think it through. Oh
my god. You want me to help you to convict my own client?
There was no fight. I mean, it was over before it began. We… Put that all aside when we started talking about granddad. We actually hugged, which I’m sure my grandfather got a good laugh about.
How’s, how’s, um, how’s Sean taking it? Uh, he’s taking it pretty badly. He’s just blaming himself. He’s getting really good at blaming himself these days. I wish he would have been with you and Xander. Maybe you could have made him see how wrong he is.
Sarah, I know we’re divorced, but… That’s still my kid. You had no right to keep this from me. Santa… If Victor hadn’t died… If you didn’t have to be with your mother right now… Were you ever going to tell me? How long was I going to have to wait? Like a year? More? Forever? I’m going to be a father and you weren’t even going to tell me?
You’re not going to be a father.
I, I didn’t tell you because it’s none of your business.
The baby isn’t yours. It’s Rex’s.
Rex? Rex got you pregnant? He does have all the working parts. That’s not what I meant. Lucky you. Looked like you were ready to deliver. Certainly far enough along that you must have gotten pregnant before you left Salem. Meaning… Meaning what? Rex and I didn’t get involved until I got to Chicago, but… Yeah, there was once here in Salem before I moved.
Sometimes once is all it takes. Please, yeah, Maggie told me that you’d gotten rid of that jerk, but… It’s a bit convenient, isn’t it? Once, with Rex, versus, what, how many times when we were together? You know, I don’t really recall. I’ve been trying to forget. The odds are overwhelming that I’m the father. How can you be so sure that I’m not?
Is everything okay? Uh, yeah, it’s just something I need to take care of. Um, listen. Stop badgering her about Xander, okay? It’s completely non productive on a million different levels. Right. Promise. Promise. Okay. And you keep me posted. I will. Alright. Bye.
That look in your eyes says you’re not going to keep your promise. How can I? Alright, alright, look, um, part of promise. Part of my reaction is jealousy, okay? How can I not be at this point? I’m not… I’m jealous if you go out with a guy on a Friday night, let alone a guy you’re living with, let alone a guy you’re thinking about marrying, okay?
But we’re not just talking about a guy, we’re talking about Xander Cook Kiriakis. I know who he is, I know that he’s dangerous, and he’s got the moral code of a KGB agent. And by the way, to top it all off… He did not propose to you because he’s in love with you. He proposed to you… because he can’t have Sarah.
You say that like it’s a bad thing.
Ugh. I thought you were gonna be going. I’m not leaving without you.
Come on. Let me drive you home. We’ll pick it up from there. Are you ever going to get the message? I said, leave me the hell alone.
So my office officially informs Lee that he is the subject of an investigation. He’ll need a lawyer. That’s where you come in. You’ve represented him before, so you already have a relationship. Get him to hire you, and then it’s just a matter of passing along what you learn from him so I can use it against him.
Do you mean it’s a question of me losing my license and giving birth in prison? Don’t be so melodramatic. We’re talking about a felony here, and you’re the D. A.! They’ll throw the book at me, God, they’ll throw the entire law library at you one volume at a time! I have no choice! My back is against the wall!
If I pull When I pull this off I’ll be all over the papers. Paulina won’t be able to touch me, and if she even tries, it’ll be seen as an abuse of power. You can’t be serious. If I don’t employ this very strategic strategy, then I’ll be out on the street. Everything that I built will be gone. I need this, Sloan.
My job is my life. Yeah, there’s gotta be another way. I’m sorry. I’m all ears. What other way? I don’t know, but I can’t do this.
Okay. So I guess you’re okay with Eric finding out that Nicole is pregnant with his baby.
You want to elope. Tonight. Think about it. What are Salem weddings like? The Hindenburg. And when we get married, we want to be surrounded by people we love and trust, and who are happy that we are together. And there are only two people in this world who check all those boxes. You, and me. So we trust each other, huh?
Come on, Nicole. It could be fun. You remember fun, don’t you?
Let me start being the husband you deserve. Tonight.
You’d do that? You would tell Eric the truth because I won’t break ten laws to help you? I would be the one investigating you. No one’s going to find out anything. I thought we were friends. I know your back’s against the wall, but this is too much. You can’t ask me to do something like this. Ask me anything else.
But this is all I need. I won’t do it.
You’re gonna call my bluff? You think I won’t tell Eric? I hope you won’t. But even if you do, it’s not gonna go your way. Because Eric and I are growing closer every day. How sweet. But it’s more than that. Nicole’s not the only one carrying Eric’s baby. He might be upset, yes. But he won’t leave me. We’re gonna work through it.
You want that to be true? Are you really ready to risk finding out for sure?
Come on Sean, we gotta get you out of here! Eric, stop! No! Yes! I guess I’ll get
going. Look, Eric, I asked you to stop. Yeah, yeah, you’re right, you did. By the way, I, I still owe you.
Are you okay? Why does everybody keep asking me that? And what the hell are you doing here? Oh, oh, Eric, Eric, Eric called you. You know, come get your drunk husband, right? Nosey son of a bitch. He called me because he cares. Because that’s the kind of person he is. Because if something’s wrong, he’s going to try to make it right.
So, you want to elope. Now. That’s what I’ve been saying. I pick up that phone and the Demira jet is warming up on the tarmac, ready to take us to… Where? Rome. Florence. So you want to fly to Italy tonight? Yes. Okay. Bring Holly. She’ll love it. Sydney is there. We’ll ask them both to be flower girls. Well, then that would involve Sammy.
Don’t tell me you wouldn’t enjoy rubbing Sammy’s nose in it. Think of… Think of how beautiful we could make this. We’ll get married in a Tuscan village where we don’t know anybody and nobody knows us. No distractions, no interruptions. It will be as if Salem doesn’t exist.
Now don’t tell me you’re not just a little bit…
Call the damn plane.
What?! Look, Victor is dead and my mom is an absolute wreck. So you will have to excuse me if I don’t feel up to standing here and being grilled about something that has nothing to do with you. Please just tell me this. How can you be so sure? Because math. Weeks went by between the last time you and I had sex and Rex and I sleeping together.
Why do you think we got together in Chicago? Why are we together now? We, we found out about the baby and we decided it was fate. Why do you even care? Are you kidding? No! You’re with Chloe now. And my mom and Bonnie said that it’s pretty serious, so. Well yeah, you could say that. I just asked her to marry me.
So, you’re okay with being Xander’s second choice? No, what I’m saying is that Xander’s past with Sarah is a part of who he is. Just like my past with you is a part of who I am. And my past with Phillip, for that matter. And I’m not with you because of that whole mess with Rachel. And I’m not with Phillip because…
Well, he’s gone. And Xander fell in love with the me that went through all of that. And we have a great thing going and nothing is standing in our way. Except me. Careful. You’ll give him a reason to punch you again. I might punch him back next time. Listen, nothing’s gonna keep me from speaking the truth.
I’m sorry. Everything you just said to me, Chloe, sounds like a rationalization. It’s a hell of a way to start a lifetime commitment. That is so not fair. I don’t, I’m not worried about being fair right now. I just want you to wake up. Have you even thought about why you haven’t been able to say yes yet? Why you need more time to think about it?
Oh, there’s a reason, Chloe, and there’s still time. You can still say no. You know what I don’t have time for? This. Chloe, come on. What? What am I gonna stick around for so you can condescend to me some more? Thanks, but no thank you.
Sean, I came down here because you lost your grandfather. And because I am so scared that you’re gonna spiral down out of guilt again. You’ve done all this work with my mom. You’ve made so much progress. Please, please don’t throw that away. Look, Belle, all of the therapy sessions in the world is never gonna change the fact that this, this is my fault.
Okay, what if that were true? Which it’s not. Does it help anything for you to crawl inside a bottle? Doesn’t that do more damage to you and the people that love you? I don’t know, Belle. I just don’t think I’m as strong as you and Eric think I am.
You think Eric won’t forgive me because you never forgive anybody for anything. But you two are nothing alike. If I explain it, he’ll understand. You’re making a mistake. Go. Just leave. I’m telling Eric, the moment he gets back… And if I do, then this you have over me is gonna be zero. Don’t do it. You’ll lose him if you do.
That’s my problem, not yours.
spoke too soon. Dimitri took the jet for his honeymoon to Iceland. Presumptuous jerk. That’s too late for a commercial flight tonight. So the elopement is off? No, no, no. We just need to be flexible. We’ll elope to Salem. You stay here. I’ll go down to City Hall and grab the forms we need for the license. And after that, we’ll get married as soon as I can practically make it happen.
I shall return.
Oh, I shouldn’t have said that thing about the Hindenburg.
You and Chloe are getting married. That was fast. Not as fast as you and Rex. Well, we had motivation. So when’s the big day? Chloe’s still thinking about it. But, I’m certain she’s going to say yes. Sooner than later, she… Loves me for who I am. She knows all the terrible things I’ve done. She… She is very understanding.
Or she has no standards whatsoever. Sorry, that was uncalled for. Look, are we done here? I’ll tell my mom that you stopped by. But it’s been a very long day, and I am exhausted. Well, I guess all that’s left to do is to wish you and Rex all the best with the baby. Thanks. Just be sure to let me know if he pops out of the Scottish accent.
You said what you came to say, and I, I mean, I love the fact that you have so much faith in me, but, listen, I’m not going anywhere, so please just leave me in peace, alright?
No. Did you hear what I said? Yeah, I heard you. But I’m not going anywhere. My place is here with you, so you can drink yourself into oblivion if that’s what you need to do. Well, I’m not gonna do it alone.
What situation is about to change? Are you thinking about removing Phillip as CEO? No, of course not. The problem is Chloe Lane. As I always knew it would be. There’s only one way to get Phillip’s head back into the business. How would that be? Remove Chloe Lane from the equation. Simple as that. What do you mean, kick her out of here?
No, I won’t have to. I don’t want you to steal her away from Philip. You’re wrong about her, Granddad. I just wish she were still around so I could prove
you. Oh, hey! Oh, hey, you’re back. Uh, did you see Maggie? Uh, no, she was, uh, she was resting. But, um, I’m just gonna go see her tomorrow. Okay. That poor woman. I never thought Victor was good enough for her, but he and Maggie were crazy about each other. And she was so devoted to him. Yeah, she was. Actually, I’ve been thinking a lot about Maggie.
That in spite of Victor’s past and… All the things he did that she disapproved of, she took a chance that her love and devotion would make him a better man, and she went ahead and married him. I mean, it all worked out for them, right? Victor and Maggie were very happy together. Definitely. So, his thinking about all that…
Inspired you in any way? Actually… I have been inspired to emulate Maggie and say yes to you. Did I just say what I think I just heard? If you heard that I can’t wait to be your wife, then you heard right.
Shhh Rex? Hey.
It’s hard. Mom’s really struggling. But that’s not why I’m calling. Um,
I wanted to say yes to us getting married. The sooner the better. Shhh
Well, at least this time around has got to be better than that.
Watch where you’re going! I could say the same thing about you, but instead of getting into a big debate about it, I’ll simply say, I’m sorry, now if you’ll excuse me, I need to get some forms for a marriage license for Nicole and myself. Are you sure you wanna do that? What’s that supposed to mean?
Oh, you having wine open? I don’t know if this is ironic or hypocritical, but I just spent that, no, I squandered the last half an hour trying to get Sean to stop drinking and now I’d kill for a drink.
Eric? Well, Belle’s with him now, so maybe she’ll get through to him.
What’s, what’s wrong? Did something happen?
Eric, there’s something I have to tell you.
