Sean, please. I need you to call me back. Listen, we don’t have to get into anything, but I need to hear your voice. I need to know you’re okay. He’s just not answering. He’s, I’ve tried texting. I’ve tried calling. I’ve tried tracking his phone and, and he either turned off his tracking or stopped sharing his location with me, but I don’t know where he is.


sorry about that. I’ve got nothing to say to you.

I’ve got nothing to say to anyone anymore.

Huh? What the,

Hey. Hey. I heard you come in. It’s just finishing up this place. You made the bed. You straightened up. Oh my God, did you dust? Actually, I did. Well, I can’t spend all my time lying around watching Body and Soul.

Oh, thank you, thank you. Okay, hit me dude. Lay some more Body and Soul on me.

Is that who I think it is? Yes, indeed. Lorna DeLorean’s son is back from the dead. Oh, man!

Does this mean you forgive me? I am furious at you for what you did. But I am glad that you’re alive. Yeah, me too. Especially now that I’m back home. In Salem. So, um, what are you going to do? Just take responsibility for what I did. Let the chips fall where they may.

Oh, good to see you Brady. Good to see you. Could you see? I can’t. You’re… You’re alive?

Like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives.

Damn it, this is all my fault. Such a stupid plan, right? Bringing Sean to lunch so that I could… Pull a bait and switch and try and get Brady to take him to AA. I don’t even know what I was thinking. You were concerned about him, and you’re trying to be supportive.

I need you to tell me what, what Sean told you in your sessions.

You know I can’t do that. Why not? He’s not your patient anymore. No, but I can’t break confidentiality not without his permission. Mom, if a patient poses an imminent danger to themselves, not only may you break that confidentiality, you have a legal obligation to do so. And all I’m asking you is, does Sean pose an imminent danger to himself?

I can’t say with any certainty, but after I saw him today, I am concerned. Okay. And as my mom, and someone who loves Sean, I am begging you, please tell me what he told you so I can help him. Please. Mom, please, please. I

will. I will. Okay. Uh, come in. Ah. Hello, Sean. Um, I hope I didn’t come at a bad time. Well, look, you know what, I can come back later if you, um, are a little too busy. No, no, no, no, no, no. It’s fine. Um, what can I, uh, what can I do for you? Well, Sean, I’m hoping that you can understand that even though Clint Rawlings just put you in that chair, I’m here to take you out.

I’m giving Ray Fernandez his job back.

Hope you like margaritas. Mmm, who doesn’t? I can get used to this. Mmm, this is so delicious. Where’d you learn to mix a drink? Oh, I used to manage a nightclub. You? Was that surprising to you? Uh, yeah. There’s a lot of things about me that you don’t know. Well, I do love a good mystery. But you think you’ve got me all figured out, don’t you?

I know you got it pretty bad for me. Oh, really? Mm hmm. And what was your first clue there, detective? Hmm? Hmm? Hmm? God, you’re alive. You’re alive. You’re fine. You’re okay, right? You’re okay. I’m fine. I had to be home. I missed all of you. Thank God. We were right the whole time, Chloe. About what? Kristen. Kristen, she was behind it.

Obviously, the whole, the whole freaking time, she went after him to get to me because I left her. Sadistic bitch. My God, where have you been? Did she have you locked in some dungeon somewhere? You know what this means? We, we can, we can, we can appeal the custody ruling, Chloe. I mean, I gotta call Bell because Brady.

No, no, the booze. The, the, the, the, the, the, everything. Everything. The knife. My God! She went after him! You understand if he testifies, then the judge will find out what a nutcase Brady! That Kristen is. It’ll be fun! Brady! Kristen didn’t do it. Yes, she did, Chloe. She, she framed me for murder. No, Brady. I did.

Philip, what are you talking about? Maybe this isn’t the best time. He just said that he, uh, he framed me for murder, so I’d like to hear this. As I just told Chloe, I was jealous. Insanely jealous of the two of you. I thought you were having an affair behind my back. And I had to make you pay, so I came up with a plan.

What plan, Philip? Okay, you have to know, I am deeply ashamed of all of it. I regret it more than I could ever say. Philip! What plan?

You were on the phone outside the pub. I came up behind you and knocked you out. Then I dragged you to the park. I took your credit card out of your wallet and charged a bunch of shots to it. They were just part of the setup. I still had to make it look like you drank them. So, I filled a syringe with alcohol and…

Injected it into your bloodstream. I think that’s enough for now. No. No. Keep going, please. Keep going. I sent those threatening texts from your phone to mine. Then I put you in the back of my car and… drove you to the spot that Chloe and I had planted the tree. Ripped it out of the ground, I dropped your watch there for her to find later.

After that, I dragged you to the riverbank. I took out a knife and cut myself. Wow. I smeared my blood all over the knife, and you. I tracked blood down to the river, I tossed my leg into the water and disappeared.

I framed you Brady, it wasn’t Kristen, it was me.

I know how wrong it was, how, how, how horrifyingly wrong it was. Okay, back then I, I, I was out of my mind, I, I was, I completely lost my grip on reality, I was consumed with anger, I felt humiliated and betrayed. The only thing that I could focus on was punishing you and Chloe for making a fool of me. I

am so profoundly sorry for all of it. I will be sorry for the rest of my life.

I know it’s probably unfair to ask you this,

but can you forgive me?

Why’d you mute that? What, you need to hear the commercial? No, but I see it. I’ve seen it before. It’s for that memory supplement.

Uh, you, uh, you thought it might be a sensitive subject for me. Am I right? Yeah, you’re right. I thought it might be, uh, I don’t know, triggering? Hmm. Well, I don’t know about triggering, but… Except I asked Kayla. And she told me that this supplement that’s on the commercial… Isn’t for amnesia.

I’m sorry, man. I know how frustrated you are. Yeah.

I just don’t know why. Nothing comes back to me. You know, I don’t remember Paulina. Or anything about our life together.

Look, I’m glad Rawlings is gone. You do know that he ordered me to, uh, arrest you for assault after that press conference? Yeah, I told him I wasn’t willing to use the department’s resources to settle his personal matters. Oh, well. I appreciate that. It reinforces what I already know. You are a valued member of the force, which is why I want you to stay on as a detective.

So I’m just gonna, uh, step down as commissioner immediately? Sean, I know, I know this must be disappointing for you, but I think it’s the right call to reinstate Rafe. Mm.

I’m sorry. In advance, that is. What for? Well, you spend all the time making up the bed all nice, and we’re about to mess it up awful. Damn. Why did I waste my time? Well, don’t waste time

now. Talk in the bed. Right. So, my handsome housekeeper, did you learn your lesson? Oh, about making the bed? Yeah. Waste of time. Total. So how about now we take a short break and get some sustenance? Get a burger and beer downstairs? Sounds good. But first… First? How about we try and make it bad just, uh… A little bit messier.

Is that possible? It’s worth a try.

Well, if they had to break into our show, at least it was to give us the good news that we have a new mayor. And a wonderful one at that. Yes, yes, yes. And if Mayor Paulina Price can… Undo the damage that jerk Clint Rawlings did. Once he’s in the rear view mirror, Well, I wouldn’t be surprised at Whatever that woman could do.

Yeah. Sounds like you have a lot of faith in your wife. Same as she has in you. Hey, She really loves you. Yeah. I can see that in everything she does. You know, it just… It kills me. That I don’t remember how much I love her. Yeah. Listen, man. I know you came here because you needed space from Paulina. But I think maybe it’s time the two of you got close again.

Paulina, I agree with you. Rafe should be running the department. Oh, show him. I truly appreciate how classy you’re being in all of this. Um, and now I’m gonna go find Rafe and tell him that you graciously agreed to step down and fully support his return. Uh, you, you sure you’re okay? Uh, yeah, no, I’m, I’m, like, I’m fine.

You seem a bit unsettled. No, I’m fine. And for the record, I, uh, I think you’re gonna make a very, very great mayor. Thank you. You take care now.

But after Sean got suspended, he came to you voluntarily, and I thought that he was making real progress. He was. But he’s decided that talking isn’t going to help anymore. It won’t help Beau, and it, and it won’t bring back Victor. Well, that just sounds like he’s giving up. Well, he’s hitting rock bottom, which is not necessarily a bad thing.

It’s what Sean, It’s what everybody has to do before they decide to make things right. And what if he doesn’t decide to do that? What if he just keeps spiraling? Well, he’s not really in a position right now to do much. I mean, he’s, he’s drinking an awful lot. He’s full of guilt and grief. Yeah, I know. I don’t know if, if Sean told you this, but the last time that Sean and Victor talked, Victor was very hard on him.

There was no understanding, no forgiveness. And that’s why he can’t forgive himself. And that’s why he’s in so much pain. I know. And I am terrified of what he might do. To get rid of that pain.

Can I forgive you? There’s your answer, Phillip. Here, come on. Why don’t you get up? Get up so I can I could have gone to jail!

Do you understand you could have killed me by putting what alcohol you, you, injected it into my veins? He wasn’t in his right mind, he just told you that. Where have you been? Have you been on some beach, like, just laughing your ass off about how my life was almost ruined? I was in a mental institution in Europe trying my damndest to get well.

And I have! I’m better now. Ah. But I still feel horrible about what I did. And I’m committed to doing whatever it takes to make amends. I know it won’t be easy. But I want to find a way, have to find a way, to make this right. Or I can’t go on.

Oh, man. Whoa, whoa, whoa. Who are you calling? The police, Chloe, because this bastard’s ass is going to jail. Brady,

you can’t call the police. Why not? Come on, he’s guilty of like, what, 12 crimes? He needs to be arrested. He was mentally ill. Then he’ll go to Bayview. I don’t give a crap. As long as he’s locked up somewhere, that’s fine with me. Oh my god, can you have some compassion in this moment? Philip just lost his father.

It’s the only reason he came back to Salem. No, you mean the only reason that he slithered out of his hole. You know what, man? You are one vindictive, psychotic dude. You’re also a coward, and your father would love to know what you did. He’d be so proud. He did know. Sorry, what? My parents were the ones who sent me to Europe.

They knew how much I needed help. Oh my god. Hold on, you’re trying to tell me that mommy and daddy fixed this for you, Philip? Wow! Kate, Kate, I can understand. You want me to believe that my grandfather was okay with me going to prison for a murder that I had nothing to do with? No! They wanted to help both of us.

That’s why they revoked the paperwork they signed having me declared legally dead. Without a body, Trask had no choice but to drop the charges against you. Mmm, yeah, that wraps it up in a nice little red bow, doesn’t it? Do you know the agony that this woman went through not knowing whether you were dead or alive?

Do you know I was drowning in guilt about the fact that Kristen probably kidnapped you? I had Steve Johnson, I hired him to investigate where the hell you were Yeah, and that’s exactly why Kate didn’t want me to go on with the investigation anymore. Because she wasn’t worried about you, was she? Because she knew you were alive.

She was just trying to protect her son. Yeah, yeah. Meanwhile, Kristen had, had, uh, Stephen Cale on some godforsaken island where they could have died. You know, you gotta go down, Philip. You gotta pay for all this. Not only for what you did to me, but for what you did to everybody. Brady, stop! Victor didn’t want his son to go to prison!

Victor won’t know now! Victor was still your grandfather. And I know you two had issues, but I also know that you loved him. And more than anything in this world, he wanted peace. For that family. You heard Philip, he wants to make things right. So, in Victor’s memory, please. Please just let him try.

There you go again. Pressuring me about Paulina. I’m sorry, man. I didn’t mean to do that. But… Let me ask you a question. Are you attracted to her? Well, how could I not be? I mean, she’s, she’s intelligent, she’s strong, she’s beautiful. Just because I’m attracted to her doesn’t mean that I want to share a bed with her.

No one’s saying you need to do that. In fact, I think you’re getting a little ahead of yourself. You ought to pump the brakes. Meaning what? Well, Instead of thinking about sleeping with your wife, maybe it’s time you started thinking about, you know, going back to the beginning. Starting over again.

This is pretty great, huh? Burger? No. This. You know what you and I have going on. I know it’s still new. Great! Good, good. I found you. Sorry to interrupt your dinner. That’s fine. So, uh, what can I do for Salem’s new mayor? You can go back to being Salem’s old police commissioner. If

only Sean would talk to me. Or you. He just keeps pushing us away because he’s beating himself up and he’s… You know what? I’m gonna, I’m gonna go to the police station and try and get some help. They all care about him there, right? Yeah, they’ll be discreet.


My God. We’ve been so worried about you. I’m sorry. I just, um, I don’t want anybody else to worry about me anymore. I, uh, I need

you to take this away from me. Because I’m not. Listen, Mom, I’m not in a good place right now. I know. It’s okay. Sean, were you thinking about hurting yourself? I, I just, I don’t know. I don’t need help

right now. And I know that I’ve said that before, but… It’s alright. There’s no shame in asking for help. No matter how many times you do it. Yeah, she’s right. Honey, we’re gonna help you. We are, I promise. I got you.

Brady, I’m begging you. Please don’t do this. The Kiriakis family is mourning. Think about what this will do to them. Just think about Maggie. I mean, come on, what do you say? Are you gonna have Phillip arrested?

I dunno. I’m gonna have to think about it.

Thank you. Well, he’s still in shock in time. He’ll realize you’re not responsible for what you did when you were sick. Well, even if he does, which I doubt now that I’m back, the truth is going to come out and I’m going to need a lawyer. Well, I’ll call be.

Belle is Brady’s lawyer, and his sister. Yeah, but she’s also your friend.

Sean, I’d like to put you on a 24 hour hold so we can assess you and figure out the next step. I would feel a lot better if you’d agree to that. Oh, I mean whatever you think is best. Doesn’t have to happen right this minute, we could, we could talk for a while. Listen, look at me. We’re in this together.

We’ll get through it together.

Look, um, I’m sorry I let you down. You did not let me down, Amy. I am so proud of you, that you came here and you asked for help. Okay, we’re gonna be okay. Everything is gonna be okay.

But, um, Sean was just appointed commissioner. And I just came from telling him he’s out. You fired him? Well, just demoted him, but he’s going to stay on as a detective. So, uh, will you accept the job? You are aware of… Yeah, the one that prohibits superiors from dating their subordinates. Well, first of all, I don’t want to hear you or any other woman refer to herself as a subordinate.

Not on my watch. Yes, Madam Mayor. Oh, let me be clear. My. Administration will have zero tolerance for anyone who abuses the power of their position, but consenting colleagues who want to date, well, as long as their personal lives don’t interfere with their professional duties, I have no problem with it.

And the city council won’t either. I’m going to tell him that. Oh, you are? Yes, this blanket policy we have with all of this. We need to start handling relationships on a case by case basis. Well, that’s great. But I think I’m going to hold off on making a decision until the policy’s been amended. You don’t want your job back?

No, no, no. Don’t get me wrong. I love being a cop, being commissioner. Really enjoying hanging out with Jada right now.

I can see that. So, uh, I guess I better hurry up and get that policy changed. Cause we need you back in charge. Pronto.

Hey, Steve. I appreciate you trying to help, but… I don’t think you can since you have no idea what this… What this is like. Actually, I do. You had amnesia? Yeah. I did. Courtesy of the DiMeras, of course.

I’ll give you the short version.

It’s, uh, a little more than 15 years ago. My brother, Jack, brought me back to town, and Kayla thought I was dead, so she was ecstatic, until she found out I had no memory of her or our life together.

You know, my reaction was… It’s like yours. I thought, how can I be her husband when I have no idea who she is? Kayla.

She wouldn’t give up. And eventually, something in me, something in my heart, let me know that this woman was my destiny. So, I did my damnedest to get those memories back. And to feel her love again. The love I had for her. The rest is history.

You think that could happen for me? I think it’s possible. If you start spending time with Paulina again, you don’t have to move back in with her right away. Just take her out to dinner. Get to know her. Talk to her. Maybe you’ll remember. Maybe you won’t. Either way, I bet you money. You’ll fall in love with your wife all over again.

I think you should take it the last buy to buy. Sure. Hey, hey. No, no, that’s mine. What? No, you. No. I meant that you should take the police commissioner’s job. Oh. Then we have to stop seeing each other just until the policy changes. Absence makes the heart grow fonder. So does messing up the bed. And believe me, I enjoy that.

I do. But, you know, Paulina’s right. The city needs you in charge. And besides, you love that job. Yeah.

Well, I’m not sure I want to go back to the department. But there is one thing that I am sure of. What’s that? That I’m falling in love with you.

Well, hey, Paulina. Abraham. Um, I just wanted to let you know that, um, I asked Ray Fernandez to take his job back. And he’s considering it. That’s great. That’s great. Well, um, Thank you. Thank you for letting me know. Of course. Have a good night. Uh, Paulina, um, Yes? Wait, wait, um, I was, I was wondering if, uh, perhaps, you would like to go on a date with me.

A date? Yeah, I mean, you know, if you’re too busy with your job, I, I, I think I could make some time.

Um, I’m sorry about my behavior earlier. You don’t have to apologize. Listen, all you’ve been trying to do is to help me, and speaking to you the way that I did, and walking out the way that I did, it was, like, it was wrong. And, and quitting therapy, that was, uh, that was a big mistake. So, um, I’m ready to get started again.

As long as you are. Okay. First, I want to tell you that you’ll be my patient. I will do everything that I can to help you. And secondly, I want to remind you that you are my family. And I love you beyond words.

Okay, I love you too, Marlena.

Hi. Hi. Thanks for coming by. Yeah, well, I got your message. You said you needed a lawyer. What’s going on? Yeah, not for me. Oh. For Xander? No. Not Xander. Then who? See for yourself.


my God. You’re alive.

Oh, my God. I’m so happy to see you. I hope you still feel that way after you hear what I’ve done.

Sean? Sean, I need to talk to
