Thank you so much for agreeing to do this. I know you have a lot. Hold on. Hold on. Hold on. I didn’t agree to do anything. Brady, you said… I said that I would meet you here. But I think we need to talk about this before you have time to talk, Brady, okay? Sean is falling apart in front of me. Last night, he got so drunk.

He drank himself into a stupor and got so sick that I did not know if I needed to call Hey. Um, hey. Uh, what’s he doing here? I thought we were having lunch. Um, Brady is on his way to an AA meeting and he offered to take you with him. No, no, no. No, and I think that you need to go. Sean, you have to go.

What did you want to tell me? Look, I, I know that you came to see my mom. And I’m really sorry that I interrupted your visit. I just, I need to… Need to what? My, my mom made me see that I need to be honest with you. Honest about what?

About me and Rex.

Rex, it’s you! Who’d you think I’d be? Well, your father said that my son was home and I was afraid that it might be Phillip.

Oh my god. Phillip?

Chloe? No, no, this can’t be real. It can’t. It’s real. Touch me.

I’m alive. And I’ve come back to you. Like sand through the

hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

I just wanted to come by and, uh, see how you’re doing. Oh, well, I’m fine. A little behind on my work, as you can plainly see, but… Oh, I assume that Roman told you that we’ve decided the best way to help Eric is to accept Sloan into the family. Which is my own… Personal idea of hell, but… Anyway, in addition to all this work, I volunteered to give the baby shower.

No, no. What? What’s the matter? You’ve been at Bayview, so Roman didn’t get a chance to talk to you. You don’t know what? I

don’t… I don’t understand. You thought Phillip was coming back? I had to call him about Victor. Oh, okay, right. So he wants to be here for the funeral. He’s such a mess. He’s such a mess on the phone. You know that he and Victor had such a complicated relationship. Victor only had complicated relationships.

So, his father dies, and he never even gets to say goodbye. Oh, that’s so awful. For the both of you. Yeah. Anyway, he told me that he was coming home. That he had to come home. And I pleaded with him, I begged him not to do that. And he finally agreed not to, but I don’t know if he was actually just trying to get me off the phone.

Because in all honesty, I never know if I’m getting through to him. I never know. If he does come home. Everyone will know he’s alive. And that’s just for starters. The funeral. Oh my god, if Brady sees him. Yeah, and if Brady doesn’t kill him, he’ll end up in prison. So for Phillip’s sake, let’s hope you got through to him.

I know, I know. I am so sorry. I didn’t mean to scare you. I just, I wanted to see you alone. Before. Before. Before whatever happens, happens. I don’t, I don’t understand. You’re, you’re alive? That I am. But where have you been this whole time? I mean, are you hurt? What about your leg?

Good as new. Physically. But you were being held hostage. How did, how did you get away? Did they hurt you? Chloe, I wasn’t held hostage. It was a lie. One out of a whole lot of lies. And the truth? The truth is, I’ve been in Europe. In a mental institution. What? I was out of my mind with jealousy. Chloe, literally out of my mind.

Back then, I felt if I couldn’t have you, I had to make sure Brady couldn’t. So I faked my own death and framed Brady for my murder.

Wow. A direct order. I’ll go directly to AA. Do not pass go and do not collect 200. Maybe I, I said it wrong. Okay, whatever happened, go ahead and drink yourself into oblivion and I’ll be there right by your side. Well, you might not remember this, but I was there right by your side watching you get sick all night and not knowing whether I needed to call an ambulance or wondering if you listening to this, Brady?

You getting all the juicy details here? Huh? Sean, listen. It is killing me watching you do this to yourself. I love you. I just don’t want to lose you. The only way you’re going to lose me is if you keep trying to run my life. Look, you know what, and thank you very much for the invite, but I don’t need AA.

It’s not like all those meetings have done you any good. Your life is a hot mess. No, and if you’re thinking about sticking Maggie after me, then don’t even bother. Don’t. You know what, because I’m done. I’m done with all of this. No, wait, Sean, Sean, wait! Belle,


hey! Let him go. Let him go. What about you and Rex? The

truth is…

What is it? What’s wrong? Nothing. It’s just a little cramp. It happens. It’s fine. Are you sure? Maybe you should sit down. Should I get you some water? I’m not sick! I’m pregnant! Oh my god! Sarah, this doesn’t seem like just a little cramp to me. Wait. Do you think you might be in labor?

Oh my goodness. Slow and last the baby. I’m so sorry. I, I really thought you knew. No. No, uh, no, I didn’t. And, and of course, you wouldn’t have said it otherwise. I’ve

got to find Eric. No, no. Can you just give that a second? You know, Sloan has some tests that she’s having done now, and there may be complications, and Eric is with her, and I, I think that she really, she needs him. Right now. Of course she does, I’ll, I’ll wait a while. Oh, my gosh. How much does he have to go through?

I know. Oh, Sean. Hi. Come in. Hey, uh, Kayla. Hi. Um, Elena, can I talk to you?

Brady, I’m sorry. Sean’s just been a wreck since he found out what happened to Victor. Well, when a drunk wants a drink, there’s always an excuse. Please don’t call him that. I’m sorry, but that’s, that’s, that’s what he is right now. He doesn’t need you, he doesn’t need me, he doesn’t need anyone feeling sorry for him because he’s taking care of that himself.


I’m just telling you what Maggie has told me over the years. I’ve been where Sean is, and if he wants to make a change, until it’s his decision, there is nothing you can do, sis. Except be strong for yourself. God, I hate that I know you’re right. Babe. It’s ironic, though. It’s ironic? Yeah, today you’re telling me I can’t will Sean into doing something I want him to do, and I was just telling you that about Chloe last night.

Oh, you were. Touché, touché. I guess we’re in the same boat. I think Chloe, Mary, and Xander is about as self destructive as Sean’s drinking. You can’t talk to Sean and I can’t talk to Chloe. You know, I, I told Chloe that the reason that Xander is proposing to her is because he can’t have Sarah. Ooh. Bet that went over well.

Yeah, but she knows it as well as I do.

She basically told me she doesn’t care about, she said she’s ready to marry Xander because she can’t have me because of Rachel and she can’t be with Philip because Philip is dead. We don’t know that for sure, do we?

You did what? Chloe, I am so sorry. Sorry? You’re sorry? Sorry doesn’t quite catch it, Philip. You put us through hell, and then you let us believe that you were dead? We warned you! We were sick with grief and worry! Brady was arrested! Oh, oh my god! What you did to Brady! He could have died from the amount of alcohol that you poured into him!

And do you have any idea what his life was like when everyone thought that he had murdered you? I know what I did, Chloe. I have been over and over and over what I did. There were days in therapy I thought I’d rather die than face what I had done to the people I love. Only now I see, if Mom and Dad hadn’t put me in that sanatorium, I would have gone on my own.

Wait, wait a minute! I’m, I’m sorry, but… Kate and Victor knew that you were alive this whole time and they let us think that you were dead? Victor let his grandson go to jail! He made sure Brady was released. Oh, how big of him. I can’t believe this. Chloe. No! No, stay away from me. How do I know you’re not still crazy and they just let you out of there because your father’s dead?

Chloe, they let me out a while ago. Oh, wow. Okay, so, you’ve been free and you let us think that you were dead? I couldn’t come home or they’re… Or what? You’d have to pay for what you’ve done? Suffer some consequences? Oh God forbid Philip Kiriakis ever pays for what he’s done. That’s what mommy and daddy are for, right?

You’re right. That’s been true for my entire life. Till now. Now, no matter what the price, I had to come home for my dad.

And to see you.

So, I had a conversation with Chloe. And here we go. She told me that you and Sarah, um, are together again. Did she now? Mm hmm. Yeah. And I assumed it was true, even though you hadn’t said a word about it to your father or me. You know, maybe, given their history, you know, Rex might have wanted to just kind of wait and see if the relationship got more serious before he said something.

And, actually, it is quite serious. I was about to tell you that. Sarah and I are getting married.

I am not in labor.

You’re holding your lower back, and you’re flushed. I don’t have a fever! Okay? I am the doctor here. It’s my body, and I am telling you, for the last time, I am not in love! Sarah, come on. No! I’m taking you to the hospital. Come on, no more arguing. I am not arguing! Look,

I’m, uh, I’m sorry the door was unlocked. No, no, no, it’s okay. I was just leaving anyway. Um, and I’m sorry about Victor. I can’t imagine a world without him in it. Um, I’ll let you know when Sloan’s done with her tests. Thanks, Kayla. Bye.

Did I make a mistake or is our appointment tomorrow? Um, yeah. It, uh, it was. Um, I’m here to cancel. Oh. Okay. Well, you, you, you could have called for that? Unless you wanted to talk to me in person? Yeah. I mean, yeah, I guess. Alright. You want to have a seat? Uh, no, no. You know what? Actually, actually, you know what?

I should probably get going. I… Okay, well, then do you want to reschedule? Uh, no. Look, the reason why I came here is because I wanted to tell you in person that I’m quitting therapy. For good.

Okay, it’s coming in? Yeah. Sure. How’s your pain? It’s much better. Good. So where’s the doctor? Right here. Sorry. Hi, Kayla. Oh, that’s all right. Hi. I hope I didn’t keep you waiting too long. No, we just got here. Oh, good. So, uh, what can we do for you? I was so surprised to see your name on the chart. Uh, yeah, I was, I was visiting my mom.

Ah, of course. I was planning to go see her today myself. And Xander, I’m sorry about your uncle. Thanks. Um, yeah. Let me just take your pulse real quick. Oh, your pulse is steady. I’m sorry, I didn’t even know that you were pregnant, so congratulations, you two. Actually… Yeah, I’m not the father. It’s actually your nephew, Rex.

Oh. Oh. Wow. Um, I understand you are having contractions. Are they regular? Um, how far apart? Uh, no, they’re not regular. Uh, very painful and, and close together. Although, I think they’re subsiding. Okay. Uh, looks like your blood pressure is a little elevated. Wait, my blood pressure has been normal throughout the entire pregnancy, so I just think…

Xander’s nerves are contagious. Well, you are in good hands here. We’re going to take good care of you and your baby. Um, so, um, how many weeks are you?

Sarah! Xander, why don’t you wait outside? Is she alright? Yeah, yeah, you go ahead and wait outside, okay? I’ll take good care of her. And the baby. Go on. It’s okay. It’s okay. Alright. Of course. It’s okay. It’s okay.

How’s the pain? It’s gone. Oh. So, um, how many weeks are you?

Look, I know you care about Philip, alright, but it’s been two years. I think if he were alive, he would have shown up by now. I know you’re right. You know, it really was weird when dad called to tell me what happened with Victor. I just kept thinking about how hard it would be on Sean and you and Phillip.

And then I realized that I just have never… Really accepted that he’s actually gone. I don’t know if I ever will.

When I got out of the bin, It looked like a villa. Trust me, it was the bin. I wasn’t a threat anymore. I wouldn’t hurt anyone. But I also wasn’t really alive. It was only then that it started to sink in what I had done.

I lost my father before he died. Because I stopped being Philip, his son, who loved him and hated him and everything in between. And somewhere along the line, I stopped being Philip who loved you. And became Philip who wanted to own you.

I’ll never have a chance to prove to my father that this is true. Phillip is alive again, but I’d like to try to prove to you. Phillip, don’t. No, no, I’m not gonna try to win you back, Chloe. I, I just want you to know that the Phillip who got to know a goth girl

and discovered she was the coolest person he’d ever met,

he’s back.

I’m sorry, did you just say that you and Sarah are… Yes, I proposed to her and last night she said yes. You were in town last night? No, no, no. She was over the phone. Oh. Oh, that’s romantic. You know what they say, absence makes the heart grow fonder. Anyway, I caught an early flight so I figured I’d surprise her and pick up her favorite scone on my way to the mansion.

Oh, okay. Blueberry. Yep. You got it. Okay. Thanks. Alright. Obviously on the house. Congratulations. Much appreciated. I’ll see you soon. Wait, wait, wait. Are you sure you’re not kind of doing this too fast? I mean like rushing this marriage? Are you rushing this marriage? I am. Yeah. And why wouldn’t I? Sarah’s pregnant with my kid.

I told you I’m not in labor. It’s just Braxton Hicks. Are you sure? Yes, um, she’s not dilated. There’s no bleeding or amniotic fluid. The contractions were irregular and they’ve stopped. But how can you be so sure that they won’t start up again? Well, I can’t really be sure, but if they start again, she can come back.

You’re sending her home? Well, first I want to give her some fluid. She’s a bit dehydrated. Um, I’m gonna go get a nurse to start your OVU, okay? I’ll be back soon. Okay, and you’re gonna be out of here lickety split. Kayla, thank you. Of course.

Thank you. Thank you for bringing me. Kayla was very reassuring. Good, I mean, you’ve got enough to worry about already. But, earlier on, you said you had something to tell me before you didn’t go into labor. Was that about you and Rex?

Uh, well, well, um, okay. Guess we are gonna be grandparents again after all. Wonder, wonder when Sarah’s due. Yeah, he didn’t give us much time for questions, did he? I mean, he walked out that door a millisecond after he said pregnant. He didn’t even break stride. Eric loses a baby and now, uh, Rex is telling us Sarah’s pregnant.

I didn’t believe it. No, I can’t believe it either. I just hope we’re not in for any more surprises.

I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. Especially since Victor died. And I am glad that you’re alive. But there’s something that you should know. I’m engaged.

Well, that’s not surprising. You and Brady always did seem to find your way back to each other. I’m not engaged to Brady.

No? No. I’m engaged to your cousin, Xander.

I, I don’t know how to say this, I’m just gonna say it. Hey, you okay? Edison said you’d gone to the hospital. Is it the baby? What’s up? No, no. No, we’re, we’re both fine. It was just, it was just Brooks and Hicks. Good, okay. What’s he doing here? Um, he came to visit my mom, uh, when the contractions started. He’s the one that took me to the hospital.

Thank you. No problem. Uh, you allowed to eat? Bless you. Yes. Thanks for staying put there, kid. Mom and I are old fashioned. We have to get married before you make an appearance. Wait, what?

I’m sorry. This is all too crazy. I mean, I talked to Rex at least once or twice a week. He never, he barely mentioned Sarah, much less say that she’s pregnant with his child. Maybe he thought you might interfere. Of course, that would be totally out of character for you, right? Okay. I don’t interfere. I gently guide.

And we both know that he’s been pining away after her for ages. Despite their little issues. Well, that’s a nice way of saying he cheated on her. Yeah, but they got past it, right? Both doctors, they’re compatible, mature. It looks so good on paper, doesn’t it? And what are you worried about? Well, I’m not worried about him.

I, I have no doubt at all that he’s head over heels in love with Sarah. But I have great doubts that that feeling is reciprocated by her. You’re marrying this guy? That’s what I was gonna tell you before he, he came in. I, I just didn’t want you to find out from someone else. Right! I mean, that’s great.

Congratulations, mate. I know how happy I was when Chloe finally accepted my proposal last night. She did? Yeah, you don’t act quite so surprised. Well, I just didn’t know that Chloe took leave of her senses. Such a funny guy. You’re just gonna be laughing all the time.

Rex and I are very happy for you and Chloe. Oh, so we’re just gonna act like grown ups now. I see. Chloe and I are very happy for both of you as well. Wow. So we’re all getting married. What are the chances? Before you ask, we’re not gonna have a double wedding, if that’s okay. And I was so hoping for that.

Look, man, if you just want to shove off, I can totally take it from here.

Thank you. For being there for me today. Of course. I’m just glad all is well with you and the baby.


a jerk.

Sean. I think leaving therapy is not a good idea right now. You’ve made so much progress, really, then. Okay. Then tell me then why is it The first thing that I did when I found out about Victor was go and get drunk outta my mind. Well, that should tell you how much you need therapy. No, no, Marlene, it tells me…

No, it tells me that I’m sick and tired of coming in here and just talking about my miserable life, because, I mean, it’s bad enough just living it. I think there’s some very good things about your life. Okay, but then why is it that the bad things, they keep winning out right now? Well, I’m not sure that’s true.

God, it’s… You sound exactly like Belle. What does that mean? She thinks that this is fixable. She wanted me to come in here and talk to you, and I did. And now she wants Brady, she wants Brady to take me to AA. But, Marlena, I’m not an alcoholic. Well, you don’t have to be an alcoholic to need help. This is not fixable.

I put my father in a coma, and I put my grandfather in a grave. Can you tell me, can you fix this? Can you? No. No, I didn’t think so.

Anything from Sean? No, I just hope he went to work. Gal in the state he’s in, maybe it’s best if he didn’t. He’s just really angry at me. I know. Why is it we always hurt and treat the people we love? The worst. Because we know that they will love us back no matter what. You know, Chloe does love you. You know that, right?


hurt her. I hurt her badly. And I have no right to keep her away from Xander, do I? No, you don’t. If you try and tell her how to live her life, she’s gonna do her damnedest to prove me wrong. Yeah. Yeah. So, you know, you just need to suck it up. You need to apologize. Tell her that you’re happy that she’s marrying Xander.

That’s what I did. Eventually, anyway. Listen, I know it’s hard. It was hard for me too, but when all of this goes south, and it will, she’s gonna need her friends. And preaching to her obviously doesn’t help anything.

You’re right, Belle. Yeah. I know what you need to do.

So, you’re not engaged to Brady. You’re engaged to Xander. Yeah, that’s what I just said. I mean, originally, we just decided to get an apartment together and then we got close. Okay, that’s a little hard to process after everything he did to you. He is not the same person that he was back then. I mean, none of us are.


And Chloe, I just… I want you to be happy, no matter who it’s with.

I should go. Phillip, wait. What is it?


mom, can I come in? Yes, hi. Hi. Hi, are you okay? Uh,

I just left Eric. Sloane lost the baby. What? Oh no. Should I go see him? No, um. I think just give him some time. How are you? Uh, I’m not good. I, uh, I’m really worried about Sean. And I, I was just trying to get through to him, I was trying to help him, and I think I pushed him too far. And I’m really, Mom, I’m really worried what he might do.

You doing okay? Really? Yeah, I honestly just think it was the stress. From seeing Xander? My mom ripping into me about not telling him about the baby. And when Xander showed up, I was on the verge of telling him. Really? Yeah. And then these pains started happening. You decided not to. No, not then. I was actually on the verge of telling him again a second time when you walked in.


then I just figured that fate interrupted me twice. And I probably should just stick with the original story. I agreed to marry you. Hmm. It’s the perfect cover story for Xander.

Sarah, are you sure that you want to go through with this? Only if you do. I do. I have something else for you. Not exactly the most romantic setting.


You have no idea what this means to me. That you’re willing to do this. You know, tonight, Sandra being so concerned about me and the baby, it just, it’s easy to forget that he is controlling and dangerous and someone that I don’t want anywhere near this baby. Thank you. Thank you for helping me. Make sure that Xander never ever knows that he’s the father of this child.

Does this mean you forgive me? I am furious at you for what you did. But I’m also really glad that you’re alive. Yeah, me too. Especially now that I’m back home. In Salem. And I know my mother thinks it’s a mistake for me to be here. She told me in no uncertain terms not to come to my dad’s funeral. But, I can’t spend the rest of my life hiding.

So what are you gonna do? Take responsibility for what I did. Let the chips fall where they may.
