Jack: Mamie, I could not be happier to have you back in town. Why didn’t you tell us you were coming?

Mamie: Oh, and deprive myself of the joy that I get from seeing that look of surprise on your face, jackie? No, no. You have the best reactions of anyone that I know.

Jack: Oh, mamie!

[ Mamie laughs ]

Mamie: And it never gets old. Your father and I used to just have so much fun just watching you open the presents. Either it be on christmas, on your birthday, just genuine delight. And awe. And now, I get to see that look on your face every time I show up at your door. Oh, I just love it! I love it.

Traci: But if you told us, we could have got your room ready, and we could have planned a– a special dinner party, maybe, um, invited over your grand niece and nephew.

Mamie: No, see, no, that’s exactly why I like to show up unexpectedly. I don’t like all this fuss.

Jack: Mamie.

Mamie: Well, look, I’m so happy that I was able to surprise you. I’m glad that we’ve had this time together, but truth be told, this reunion is not really the only reason why I’m in town.

Traci: Oh, no?

Mamie: No, there is a matter of some importance that’s brought me here.

Devon: Why’d you want to meet here instead of the office?

Lily: Well, I don’t want the employees to hear us talking about this new secret investor and think that chancellor-winters is in trouble.

Devon: Did you find out any new information?

Lily: Uh, jill talked to victor.

Devon: Oh, what did he say?

Lily: Well, he stonewalled her as well. Said this person wants to remain anonymous, and that it was part of the deal when he sold his shares to them.

Devon: This doesn’t make any sense at all. We have to figure out who this person is because I don’t like the fact that someone has a piece of our company and we’re in the dark about it.

Lily: Well, supposedly this person is gonna reveal themselves soon.

Devon: Soon. When’s soon?

Lily: I don’t know.

Devon: I don’t like the sound of reveal.

Lily: No, it’s all very dramatic.

Devon: Yeah, like, what’s the point of it? Is– is it somebody who wants to cause harm to the company or just someone we don’t like?

Lily: Is it someone from our past?

Devon: Maybe somebody from jill’s past.

Lily: Or, I mean, like, what if this person comes in with an agenda different from ours?

Devon: I don’t know. You think that victor would go along with something like that, knowing how it’d make jill and us feel?

Lily: Honestly, I think that victor is so concerned with the turmoil at his own company that he’s not even thinking about what this is gonna do to ours.

Victor: You’re blaming me for this company’s dysfunction?

Victoria: You decide you’re going to just shuffle the deck chairs, and then everyone else has to scramble around to figure out where they fit into your grand scheme.

Victor: I explained to all three of you what I expected of you.

Victoria: By dictating your plans. Then you just expect everyone to fall in line.

Victor: You damn well know. You more than anyone else should know. A company of this size is not run by consensus. It’s run by one person. That person is me from now on.

Victoria: Then why even bother to keep me around or nicholas for that matter?

Victor: I don’t want to argue about this. It’s how it is, period.

Victoria: Not in my opinion.

Victor: Your opinion is irrelevant.

Victoria: Oh, thank you, daddy. You just proved my point.

Victor: Newman enterprises is bigger than you or your damn feelings! You either accept this or you can leave.

Victoria: I disagree with you and you just wanna throw me out of your kingdom.

Victor: That’s your choice.

Victoria: Do you know what, dad? If I left, everything would fall apart. Everything.

Nick: Hey.

Victoria: Hi.

[ Victoria sighs ] So, the trip went well?

Nick: Uh, yeah. Lots of enthusiasm for the new leadership at kirsten. Everyone’s very excited to put the past behind them.

Victoria: Yes, with good reason.

Nick: I know you didn’t want to meet with me to talk about my conversations with the kirsten executives. So, let’s just get into it. If you’re about to ask me to come back to newman…

Victoria: No, that’s not it. I need your help. We need to keep our father from making a terrible mistake.

Adam: Back in the big chair, I see.

Victor: Hey, son. What can I do for you?

Adam: Uh, I saw the press release about the musical chairs. I mean, the executive changes here at newman. I was named in it, but I have to say, the description of my role was rather vague.

Victor: Was it?

Adam: When do you want me to start, uh, whatever it is you’re gonna be having me doing? Have you decided?

Victor: Yes, indeed I have. Nate, would you kindly join me in my office? Thank you.

Adam: How does nate figure into this?

Victor: You will find out soon enough.

Why should I be framed?

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Victor: I can tell you, son, I was surprised, but rather pleased when I heard you intended to start at the bottom of the company, work your way up.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Victor: Now, that doesn’t mean that I’m going to send you down to the mail room, where, as you know, your sister started. Nor am I designating a special area in the men’s room as your new office.

Adam: Glad to hear that.

Victor: Right. I have a place a little farther up the ladder.

Adam: Okay.

Nate: Victor.

Victor: Nate.

Nate: Adam.

Adam: Well, the gang is all here. So, what’s the big mystery?

Victor: From now on, you will be nate’s assistant.

Victoria: I’m worried about dad’s decision-making and whatever he might come up with next.

Nick: Worried in what way?

Victoria: Oh, come on. You’ve seen how erratic his behavior is lately. Merging companies, then not merging them. This person in, this person out. He’s all over the place.

Nick: Vic, it’s his company. He can do whatever the hell he wants. If that means putting himself back in as ceo, if he has a whim, he’s gonna expect everyone to abide by it.

Victoria: These aren’t whims. This is indecision, it’s confusion. Historically, dad wants something, he takes action. How many times has he gone back and changed his mind about something?

Nick: It’s been known to happen.

Victoria: Uh, yeah, you can count the times on one hand.

Nick: Well, it doesn’t mean there’s anything wrong.

Victoria: Look, I know, but sometimes you tune dad out and don’t say that’s not the case.

Nick: I do not do that. I don’t tune him out. I just don’t let him get to me or at least I try not to. I just don’t want to get dragged back in, vic.

Victoria: Just for one second, forget about your position in this. Forget about newman enterprises. Think about the family, think about dad, the man. He’s not acting like himself. And he’s about to go back into this highly stressful role of running newman enterprises. I’m worried about his health, and he’s had health issues in the past. There’s a reason that he stepped back from the company. Has he suddenly become younger and healthier? I mean, how is it a good idea for him to dive back in as ceo?

Nick: Okay, I’ll admit, he was acting a little out of character when it came to all this newman media and mccall and kirsten stuff, but don’t you think that’s because of adam’s actions?

Victoria: In part, I’m sure. But why it happened is not the point. What happens next is what concerns me.

Nick: Vic, I’m not exactly sure what you’re asking of me, right? The family company is not my concern right now, and clearly, controlling dad is not in my skill set. I’m not coming back. I’m definitely not going to war.

Devon: You know, we do also need to consider the chance that this mystery person is just a big shot investor that wants to get their hands on something that’s a sure thing.

[ Lily scoffs ] Right?

Lily: Yeah, I mean, that would be great, but I don’t think so. And they can say they’ll be a silent partner, but what if that’s not true?

Devon: What if the ipo idea comes back around and they want to go public?

Lily: No. Jill said that’s not happening. Also, I have one of our finance guys try to trace the money trail and see if he can find anything out, but nothing so far.

Devon: Great. I don’t like the idea of being blindsided. I’ll tell you that.

Lily: Yeah, me either.

Devon: Oh. And hey, we will stick together as a team, moving forward no matter what, right?

Lily: Absolutely.

Jack: You are being awfully coy with us.

[ Traci laughs ]

Traci: You are. So, spill, mamie, come on. What are you up to?

Jack: A new suitor, perhaps?

Traci: Oh! Someone you met when you were in town for the gala.

Mamie: Oh, come on now. Just– just stop now. I don’t want to say anything yet. I don’t want to jinx it.

Traci: See, see. She didn’t say it was not a man.

[ Traci and mamie laugh ]

Mamie: Oh, look, just tell me about your wedding, jack. I read that you and diane got married.

Jack: That we did. We had a small civil service at the courthouse.

Traci: It was small, but it was beautiful and so romantic.

Jack: And now we’re planning a big party to celebrate.

Mamie: And ashley, she got married to, uh, to that, um, to tucker. Tucker mccall. Oh, well, the last time that I was here, I don’t cite that you were too excited about the two of them reuniting.

Jack: That marriage lasted about as long as I expected it to.

Mamie: What are you saying?

Traci: Uh, it looks like it may be over already.

Mamie: What?

Traci: I know. Ashley and tucker left on their honeymoon, and the next thing we knew, tucker was back in town and ashley wasn’T. She’s still, I think, in paris.

Mamie: Well, I don’t like the sound of that. I don’t like the sound of that at all.

Jack: Tucker broke our girl’s heart. Again. Only this time, he’s not gonna get away with it. Imagine this…

Mamie: Now, jack, you have always taken care of your sisters, but I don’t like hearing you talk like that. Ashley is an adult and she doesn’t need you talking [Indistinct] Fighting with her husband on her behalf.

Jack: Soon-to-be ex-husband.

[ Mamie scoffs ]

Mamie: Look, battling with that man is a waste of your time. You need to be spending all of your energy on your new wife. Well, okay, enough said. I need to be getting on. Oh, it’s just wonderful to spend this time with you. And I hope that we can get together while I’m still here.

Traci: How long are you planning to stay in genoa city?

Mamie: A few weeks, maybe. I have business to settle.

Jack: Are you sure you don’t want to stay here in the house with us?

Mamie: No, no, uh, it’s so sweet of you to offer, but I’ve already booked a room at the athletic club.

Jack: Mamie, this is your home.

Mamie: Jack, I would really prefer to stay at the club. For privacy.

Traci: Privacy, huh?

Mamie: No, no, it’s not what you think, young lady.

Traci: Like, you are such a woman of mystery.

Mamie: Mm.

Jack: What are you up to, mamie johnson?

Mamie: Oh, I’m just settling a few debts. That’s all.

Lily: Okay. Thank you. Okay, so that was bob, the guy I asked follow the money trail.

Devon: Yeah. What did he say?

Lily: So, the money came from a corporate bank account in detroit. And the company’s name is lbb financial.

Devon: I’ve never heard of them before. What does the lbb stand for?

Lily: I don’t know, I mean– I mean, I know this sounds weird but the first thing that comes to my mind is my grandmother’s initials, lily bell barber.

Devon: That can’t mean anything though, right?

Lily: No. No, I don’t think so. Although, I mean, they did live in detroit, my grandparents.

Devon: They did? So, maybe it does mean something then?

Lily: No, I mean, look, lily bell and walter have been gone a long time. They’re not giving money to victor.

Devon: Right, yeah. And olivia didn’t give up medicine to start a company and make investments, right?

Lily: No, no. And I can’t think of anyone else in the family.

Devon: So, you think the fact that this company’s name and your grandma’s initials are the same is just a coincidence?

Lily: I mean, I guess so.

Adam: Me? Nate’s assistant? You’re– you’re– you’re joking?

Victor: Mm-mm.

Nate: I already have an assistant, victor. His name is greg and he’s excellent. Plus, it’s pretty clear, adam’s not the follow-order, set-up-meeting kind of guy.

Victor: You’re both professionals, you’ll work it out.

Adam: I know that I said I would start at the bottom, but assisting this guy? Really? How– how does that benefit anyone?

Nate: What do I tell greg?

Victor: I already have another job for him. Son, I think you will realize sooner rather than later that this is an ideal position for you.

Adam: Hm. Just between us, you know what’s better than mopping?

Nick: Vic, I get it. I understand that you’re disappointed dad’s stepping back in as ceo. You essentially got demoted.

Victoria: Of course, I’m not happy about it.

Nick: Vic, with the exception of hiring nate… I think you’ve done an excellent job running the company.

Victoria: Thank you.

Nick: I mean, it. I have no idea why dad feels the need to take you out of the picture.

Victoria: Because it’s not about business. It’s not about performance or loyalty, it’s purely personal.

Nick: Hmm, well, that I don’t get. What about it’s personal?

Victoria: I don’t know, maybe dad got bored sitting around at home. Or maybe he just wanted to push us around just to prove that he can. Who knows, nick? Maybe he doesn’t approve of my love life.

[ Victoria sighs ] He replaced my portrait with his own, if that says anything.

Nick: Well, you still haven’t answered my question. I’m not coming back to newman. So, what exactly do you want from me?

Victoria: I’m not asking you to step back in at newman. I’m asking you to hear my concerns and understand that dad is not as tough as he used to be. So, we can’t just follow along with these risky ideas of his just because we don’t want him to yell at us. It’s more serious than that. I need you to help me stop dad from jeopardizing his health.

Adam: Dad, when– when I said I wanna start from the bottom and I wanna earn my way to a higher position, this is not what I had in mind.

Victor: Son, I don’t think you and I agreed that you could choose your own starting point.

Adam: Dad, I– I thought we would be working together. You know, father and son.

Victor: Didn’t you tell me that you wanted to learn the ropes?

Adam: Yeah, not from someone who’s been in business less time than I was in business school.

Victor: This entire rebirth notion is yours. You said you wanted a chance to prove that you could change. You get your chance now.

Adam: It’s another test. That’s what this is?

Victor: Everything is a test. Every minute of every day is a test.

Nate: Well… this is as much a surprise to me as it is to you.

[ Adam laughs ] I had no part in it and I am about as excited as you are. So, if you wanna run and tell your daddy, “thanks but no thanks,” hey, that’s fine by me.

Adam: Oh, I would love to do that, doc.

[ Sighs ] But I can’T. Because that is what my father is expecting me to do.

[ Phone ringing ]

Nate: Hey, devon, I’m in a meeting right now.

Devon: Well, after your meeting, would you mind stepping away from the office, and coming to meet me because there’s something I’d like to talk to you about.

Nate: Can’t we just do this over the phone?

Devon: I would prefer to do it in person, if you don’t mind.

Nate: Fine, I can meet you at the athletic club once I’m finished here.

Devon: Thank you.

Nate: Listen, I have to go take care of something. When I get back, we could, uh, talk about your duties.

[ Adam sighs ]

Adam: Very funny. What’s the play here, pops? You’re gonna push me until I break, is that it?

[ Adam sighs ]

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Nick: Vic, are you saying you think dad’s gotten weak? I really hope you didn’t say that in front of him because if you did, I can understand why you got demoted.

Victoria: I’m saying that our father’s behavior is not normal. I mean, you– you’ve even agreed with me, you said that he’s not acting like himself. He’s usually so strong and decisive, not all of this back and forth and constantly changing his mind. And yes, I’m sure adam is partly to blame, when isn’t he? But there’s more to it.

Nick: Are you really that concerned with dad’s decision-making right now? Or are you just using this as an excuse to get your job back?

Victoria: Really, nick? Really? Do you think that I would use my concern for our father as some sort of a power play? Have you forgotten about his past medical issues? I mean, yeah, sure, he can– he can pound on a punching bag all day long, but this is about more than just his physical strength. This is about his mind too. Or, I’m sorry, does me saying that offend you on dad’s behalf? Do you think I’m trying to undermine him for my own benefit, is that what this is?

Nick: It just seems a little coincidental that you think dad has suffered some sort of mental decline, but only after you lost your position as ceo.

Nate: Okay, devon, you got me over here. So, what’s the big emergency?

Devon: I want to know when the last time you spoke to your mom was.

Nate: Why? Is there something wrong?

Devon: No, no, no, she’s– there’s nothing wrong with her. She’s fine. Um, I’m just trying to figure something out. ‘Cause there’s a new investor that we have at chancellor-winters and we don’t know who it is, but it’s looking like they might be connected to your family.

Nate: Okay, so why do you think it’s my mom, she– she’s not a business person.

Devon: Well, dru and olivia’s parents are gone, so she’s the only one left.

Nate: And you come up with this family connection because of?

Devon: ‘Cause the name of the investment firm is lbb, which are the same initials as lillie belle.

Nate: I’m not sure why lily doesn’t know this, but aunt mamie has a small investment firm.

Devon: Called lbb?

Nate: Yep.

Devon: Is it based out of detroit?

Nate: Yeah, I think that’s right. Um, aunt mamie bought my grandparents’ house there a few years back.

Devon: Really? Okay, uh, what else can you tell me about the company?

Nate: Look, devon, I’m not comfortable talking anymore about my aunt mamie’s business. Unless you can tell me what you’re after.

Devon: I’ve told you what I’m after. I’m trying to figure out who this investor is. Or see if anything you’re telling me is relevant.

Nate: Devon.

Devon: What? What? You can’t talk to me? It’s fine. It’s really fine. Forget I even said anything. Thank you for meeting me here. You’ve been a lot of help, okay?

Nate: Okay. Okay. So, you only reach out when you need something. Is– is that how it’s gonna be? Come on, man. Can’t we just get beyond the past?

Devon: Nate, not today. Thanks again.

[ Nate sighing ]

Traci: [ Laughs ] Wow, mamie was quite mischievous, wasn’t she?

Jack: Yes, she was.

Traci: She denies that there’s any romance, but I’m not kidding. There is a twinkle in her eye.

Jack: Oh, she was definitely having fun. Didn’t it remind you somewhat of back when she and jill used to face off?

Traci: Oh, those two.

Jack: What if jill is the unfinished business she was talking about?

Traci: What? After all these years? I– no one could ever say that jill and mamie were ever going to be best friends, but I thought they behaved pretty civilly at the gala.

[ Laughs ] Sort of. Wow, I, uh– you know, I– i thought they had called a truce. Mamie took jill’s million bucks and invested it really wisely.

Jack: And lived happily ever after.

Traci: And I always thought that mamie was content with her life.

Jack: What if she wanted one last hurrah? What if mamie has some unfinished business with the former mrs. John abbott?

[ Mamie gasps, laughs ]

Nate: Aunt mamie.

[ Both laughing ] Aw.

Mamie: Aw.

Nate: What are you doing here? I didn’t know you were in town.

Mamie: Well, I wanted to surprise you, and your cousins. My plan was to reach out tonight after work, but now, my plans have been spoiled.

Nate: Well, well, I am thrilled to see you.

[ Mamie laughs ] We didn’t get to spend nearly enough time together when you were in town for the bicentennial. So, what brings you back so soon?

Mamie: I decided that I needed to spend more time with the people that I loved the most.

Nate: Uh-huh. And devon was just here asking about you, your business, and your sister, lillie belle.

Mamie: Oh, my. Certainly got onto that faster than I expected.

Nate: And what exactly does that mean? What are you up to? Salonpas, makers of powerful pain relief patches

Devon: Hey.

Lily: Hey. Did you see nate?

Devon: Yes, I did.

Lily: What did he say?

Devon: He said a whole lot. He said that, uh, aunt mamie has an investment firm called lbb and she named it after your grandmother. And it’s one of the few entities she owns.

Lily: What?

Devon: Yeah.

Lily: Wow, I mean, I knew that she, you know, had good investments and real estate, but I didn’t know about her business ventures. So, wait. So, mamie is the secret investor.

Devon: I mean, it seems pretty likely, don’t you think?

Lily: Yeah. I mean, I guess, she would want to remain anonymous, given her history with jill.

Devon: Well, sure, that makes sense, but what I don’t understand is, why would she keep this a secret from us since we’re family.

Lily: What could she be up to?

Mamie: I hope I’m not keeping you from anything, nate. Your mom has been keeping me up to date on your business career. Sending me journal articles. I know what a big deal you are over at newman enterprises.

Nate: Come on, I’ll always have time for you, aunt mamie. Now, please tell me, what is this all about.

[ Mamie sighs ]

Mamie: You are the one person that I can trust with the truth.

Nate: Sounds a bit ominous, but I’m flattered, I guess.

Mamie: Well, it will all come out sooner than later. Sooner than I expected, apparently. But I wanted you to hear it from me.

Nate: Yes?

Mamie: I’ve invested in chancellor-winters.

Nate: Ah, so you’re the mystery benefactor.

Mamie: I am.

Nate: Lily and devon are family. Why are you keeping this a secret?

Victoria: It sounds like you think I would put my personal ambition above our father’s well-being.

Nick: It just kind of seems to me like all this concern for dad’s coming out of left field.

Victoria: How can you say that? Dad’s decision to demote me was just the latest in a long list of questionable moves.

Nick: Says you.

Victoria: Yes. Says me.

[ Sighs ] That aside, dad stepping out of semi-retirement and coming back to the office, day in and day out again is gonna be very physically taxing on him and I’m worried. I think it might be too much. And guess what. Mom agrees with me.

Nick: Then, mom should be the one who tries to talk dad out of throwing himself back into his work. Look, whether your concern for dad is genuine or not, dad’s gonna see it as sour grapes. It’s the way it’s gonna be. He’s gonna see this as some ploy to get your job back. Can you imagine the fury that is going to rain down upon you if you ever suggest to our father he’s incapable of running the company that he built?

Victoria: Then, what should I do about it?

Nick: You need to let mom deal with it, right? And just accept the fact that you’re not in the top spot right now, and be cool to him. Keep that father-daughter peace if you ever hope to get your position back someday.

Adam: Let’s see, victoria’s angry, nick nonplused, am i safe to assume that victoria just told you about the new family company news? You know, I have to wonder, sis, if you didn’t have a gleeful hand in dad appointing me your boyfriend’s gofer.

Victoria: Whatever fate our father has chosen for you is undoubtedly more than you deserve and decidedly unfair to nate.

[ Adam sighs ]

Nick: What the hell was that? My husband and I have never been more active.

Nick: Thanks, man. Well, our father just has a hell of a sense of humor, doesn’t he?

Adam: Oh, yeah, he’s just uh, hilarious.

Nick: You walked right into that one though. I mean, you asked for this. You told him you wanted to start at the bottom and work your way up and prove yourself, and he gave you that opportunity.

Adam: Yeah, under nate’s thumb though.

Nick: Yeah, that part does suck. Gotta be honest, adam, I don’t know who I trust less right now, nate or you? What I do find interesting is the timing of all this. I mean, this just happened what, today? And here you are crying about it already, which tells me you don’t want to start at the bottom. You don’t want to do things the right way. You’re just biding your time until you can make your next move.

Adam: [ Sighs ] Well, then, I guess, it’s good you got out of newman at the right time. Again.

Nick: Man, do whatever you want. Be nate’s assistant or not. Do dad’s bidding or walk. I don’t care. But I’m telling you right now, if you do anything to hurt dad, and especially, vic, all bets are off with us. You will deal with me.

Jack: Mamie versus jill seems like a lifetime ago. Would mamie really come back to town with some kind of vendetta? I mean, devon and lily work with jill? Would she do something to cause trouble for her own family?

Traci: That certainly does not sound like the mamie we know and love.

Jack: I hate to think of her getting all caught up in score-settling with our former stepmother.

Traci: Well, I’m with you. And if anybody knows how to play dirty–

Jack: Exactly. It’s jill.

Nate: Jill, her head is going to explode when she learns about this, right? So, is that what this is all about? Some sort of payback?

Mamie: Jill and I do have quite the history.

Jill: You’re kidding me, right?

Mamie: About going to jack’s wedding? Why would I be kidding?

Jill: Oh, that’s right. You’re probably serving at the reception.

Mamie: No, jill, I’m not serving. I am going to the wedding ceremony and sitting with the family. Then, I’m going to the reception as a guest.

Jill: How did you finagle an invitation out of jack? Oh, I bet you gave him some sob story about changing his diapers as a kid. You really have no shame.

Mamie: For your information, jill, I did not have to ask for an invitation. Besides, I wouldn’t be that presumptuous. That’s more your style.

Jill: It’s better than having no style at all.

Mamie: The truth is, jill, mr. Abbott invited me to come as part of the family and I didn’t have to hold a gun to his head.

Jill: Mamie, mr. Abbott invited you for sentimental reasons. After all, you’ve been a fixture around this house for 100 years. Don’t overestimate your position. You are the housekeeper here. Now, you just run along and enjoy jack’s nuptials.

Mamie: Why, thank you. I intend to.

Jill: And billy and i get along just fine.

Mamie: Yes, you should enjoy your time with your son. It may be running out.

Jill: Why you vicious woman!

[ Exhales in frustration ] Awful lot of zeroes, aren’t there?

Mamie: What is this?

Jill: Well, it’s a check, payable to mamie johnson.

Mamie: Why?

Jill: [ Laughs ] Mamie, think of all the things you could buy with that money. A lovely condo, a fancy car. Anything. Plus, you’d never have to work another day in your life.

Mamie: Are you buying me off?

[ Jill sighs ]

Jill: Listen, I know how you feel about this family, but would you be realistic, please? You really want to put yourself through the agony of living under the same roof with the man you love, knowing you can never have him? And mamie, make no make no mistake, john will never, never be yours.

Mamie: I wonder how long you’ll last, jill. How long before you crave the next jed sanders?

Jill: [ Sighs ] We’re not talking about me, we’re talking about you. We’re talking about the chance for a brand new life, and you have it right there in your hands. Lady, you’ve hit the jackpot. All you have to do is leave.

Mamie: [ Laughing ] Oh. I very much am looking forward to seeing jill’s head explode.

[ Nate laughing ] But I’m not ready to reveal my plans yet. I still have some details I have to work out.

Nate: Uh-huh, and you’re swearing me to secrecy.

Mamie: I am. I also need your help.

Nate: My help?

Mamie: You have got to get lily and devon off track. They cannot know yet that I am the chancellor-winter’s mystery investor.

Nate: Uh, sorry, you might be too late on that, aunt mamie. Devon seems to have put the pieces together already.

Mamie: Well, this is not going the way I planned it all.

Lily: Can you imagine how upset jill is gonna be when she finds out that mamie has a stake in chancellor-winters? She’s gonna go ballistic.

Devon: I think that’s an understatement. I think she– she’s gonna completely lose her mind.

Lily: I mean, there has to be a way that we can diffuse the situation before we tell her maybe, right?

Devon: How?

Lily: I don’t know. I don’t know, but also, we have to be sure before we say anything.

Devon: Well, I mean, come on.

Lily: Well, no, I know it probably is her, but still, we have to be certain before we tell anyone. And more importantly, we have to figure out what mamie’s motives are.

eddie maine. Hey, marshall. Are you — are you ready for the big night? Yeah. Yes, I am. And thanks again for booking me tonight. I appreciate it. Oh, no need to thank me. I just made a suggestion. It was curtis that got the pr machine rolling. When curtis throws a party, people want to come. Yeah. I wasn’t sure after that crowd the other night.

[ Both chuckle ] You mean “lack of crowd.” Yeah. And we’re gonna try and keep that a thing of the past. Oh, zip! I’m just checking in, man. You got everything you need? I do. Uh, I’m just finalizing the set list here. N’neka: Excuse me. Marshall? And there’s just… h-hang on a minute. What is it, love? …Just one problem. Look at this. Stage all set up for your father to play. It’s surreal witnessing eddie maine’s universe taking physical form. Brook lynn, your father, he is — he is so excited about this. And I’m just — I’m getting all caught up in it with him. You say that like it’s a bad thing. No, no, no. No, no, no. It’s not that. It’s not that. You’re still hoping that his half-finished song helps him remember who you are, who we all are. No. Not who we are. Who he is. Brook lynn, I-I know that you think I’m crazy hanging all this hope on a — on a half-finished song, but…there was something in him when he played it for me. And talking about muses and — and everything, I just felt it in my heart that — that there was something deeper in there. Like — like ned was — was underneath… wanting to climb out, you know, and this song was his way back to us. And e-even when he was recording it, there was a minute in there that I — that I just felt that he was about to remember something. And then marshall offered him this gig and the challenge to finish the song and — and play it here tonight. Honey, I’m just — I’m so afraid [Exhales sharply] I’m getting my hopes up over something. Maybe it’s just a — a very beautiful song that doesn’t mean anything at all. Olivia, don’t worry.

[ Sighs ] At least eddie accepts us all now. Right? He’s getting to know us in a new way. What if he gets to know us… and he decides that he doesn’t feel the same way about us that he used to?

The role of molly lansing-davis is now being played by kristen vaganos.

Hey, uncle curtis. Tj, molly. Alright, I’m glad you guys could make it. We’re looking forward to having a good time. Kinda like this party’s just for us tonight. We do have a lot to celebrate. Yes, you do. And I’m glad I get to celebrate with you. Olivia, I’m so sorry. There’s someone I got to see. Go. Hey, blaze, you got my text. I’m so glad you made it. Yeah. Thanks for the invite. I’ve never heard of eddie maine. Well, he’s a little before our time. So it’s a comeback? Oh, he’s come back alright. Eddie maine’s actually my father. Your father? Okay. You said your father was a musician, but isn’t your name quartermaine? Yeah, he — he dropped the quarter and just stuck with the maine. Why don’t the two of you get some drinks on me? -Okay. -Happy to.

[ All chuckle ] Curtis, look how many people are here! Hey, babe. Ah, well, you know, um, I just put some feelers out, talked to some old friends — people I haven’t seen in a while. That was it. Well, when you call, they come. Well, dad wanted to pack the house for eddie maine’s debut. He asked me to pull out all the stops. And voil. Voil. Oh. I wish trina was here to see this. Where are my red pumps? I just had them earlier. Here you go. Oh, my god. Thank you. T, you have got to calm down, alright? Everything is going to be okay. This is spencer’s fault that I’m late. Hello, my name is spencer cassadine. I’m calling to confirm concierge service for my flight to new york. We will be on time. Okay. Perfect. I will see you soon. Uh, spencer, you left this in the kitchen. I thought you might want it for your trip to new york. How’s it going in here? Get anything out of this guy? Uh, shouldn’t be too much longer. Right.

[ Door closes ] Sam. Hey. Is dante here? He’s in the interrogation room with a prisoner — cody bell? Oh. Is he expecting you? No, but, um, I’ll shoot him a text and let him know that I’m here. You know what? Forget that. I’ll announce you. I’d rather watch college football. You know, it’s — it’s less predictable, raw. Cody, no way. By the time they get to the pros, it’s — no. Absolutely — dante. Sam’s here to see you. How about I, uh, let her in and you all can tell me what’s really going on here?

[ Exhales sharply ] Oh.

[ Knock on door ] I’m almost ready, but… I thought you were going to text.

[ Knock on door ]

[ Gasps ] Sasha! Oh! Thank god!

did you have a desk sergeant notify gladys corbin that cody bell was in custody knowing that she would show up here and that I would be the one to deal with her? Yes, but it’s only ’cause I knew you could handle it, man. I’m sorry. Didn’t want to do that to you, but… well, I could

barely handle her. That woman is crazy! The only reason she gave up and left is because she got a phone… …a phone call. But you know all about that, don’t you? Look, we have reason to believe that gladys has been embezzling from sasha. What? That call… that’s how gladys found out… that she was being investigated. I’m so glad to see you, sasha. Really? Well, it sounds like you were expecting someone else. Well, um [Chuckles nervously] W-where have you been? H-how did you get away from cody? The police have him in custody, but no one had seen you, and he refused to say what had happened. I mean… I feared for the worst. I was so afraid for you. Were you? Of course. Well… what’s with the suitcase and all the clothes, gladys? Were you going somewhere? Sorry about that, eddie. You were saying? Oh, I was just saying how much I appreciate the chance to play. Oh, man, don’t I know it? As a musician, there’s no substitute for performing. It’s not only a reward, it’s — it’s the greatest teacher, shows you what’s working, what needs help, keeps all the creative juices flowing. And it’s a great way to test new material. Speaking of which, brother, I cannot wait to hear your new song.

[ Exhales sharply ] About that…

[ Sighs ]

[ Door closes ] Alright, guys, look, uh, I think this is the set list. I decided to put that idle rich song right there instead, so someone can just make a copy of that.

[ Knock on door ] Eddie? Um, uh, yeah, so we’re good? -We’re good for tonight? -Yes. Cool. And thanks again for coming in early for the quick run-through. Go get yourself a beer. -Alright. -See you later. Cool.

[ Chuckles ] Hey. Sorry. I didn’t mean to drive everyone away. No, not at all. You know musicians. Any excuse to get a beer. Right. [ Chuckles ] Listen, I just came to tell you that I know you’re going to do great tonight. I just wish my mom was here to see it. I — I know you — you don’t remember, but, um, growing up, I heard countless stories about eddie’s performances, you know, listening to cds. And now here I am, about to hear it live for myself. I can’t wait.

[ Chuckles ] Thank you, brook lynn. Yeah. Break a leg, eddie.

[ Door closes ] Hey. Hey. Congratulations on being brook lynn’s first client. I’m absolutely thrilled. She’s going to do a great job for you. There is nobody more dedicated than brook lynn when she puts her mind to something. Then that’ll make two of us. I plan to match her dedication.

[ Laughs ] Okay, so tell me about eddie maine. He’s brook lynn’s father? She was a little vague about it. Yeah, that — that — that’s a long story. That’s what she said. Mm… let’s just say it’s been a while since eddie’s performed in front of people other than busking in rice plaza, so we’re all a little bit on edge tonight. So how are the soon-to-be parents? Still on cloud nine. Yep, yep. Aww! We wanted to tell my mom tonight, but she had to cancel at the last minute. Oh, well… but we’ll tell her soon. I just want the whole family to be in the loop. Well, all you got to do is tell aunt stella. Ooh.

[ Laughs ] I mean…

[ Laughter ] Uncle? Uncle? I’m not touching that.

[ Laughs ] Michael, lighten up. Seriously. Willow was cleared by a team of doctors, and she’s already back at work. Yeah, I know, but it doesn’t mean that you got to come out the gate like a bull, though. I mean… coming to a club is not charging out of the gate.

[ Chuckles ] It’s just — it’s just, your first day back at work, I figured you’d want to stay at home and relax after all that exposure and stress. A night out will help reduce the stress. And the exposure is actually good for my immune system.

And vodka does wonders to keep things sterile. Okay. Sorry, kristina. Just sparkling water for me tonight. Oh, no, of course. You, on the other hand, if you are not careful, michael, you’re going to turn out to be as type-a and controlling as molly.

[ Indistinct conversation ]

[ Suitcase zipping ] Esme. Hey, there you are. I want to go over everything one more time before I leave. Spencer, you can’t go. Hey, how’s eddie doing? He is not nearly as nervous as we are. He was just going over the set list with the band. Oh, well, maybe that means that he finished the song. I don’t know. He’s — he’s being so tight-lipped about it all. Well, he didn’t say anything to me. Maybe he wants it to be a surprise or something?

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. Okay. Okay. I’m going to go thank marshall and curtis. It’s really marshall’s challenge that made this whole thing possible. Okay. So, olivia told me the whole long story about eddie. What a history. Oh, yeah. That history has crash landed right into the present day. That must be so strange. I guess you knew that your dad had that double life back in the day, but now after his head injury, he’s really become this guy eddie maine? That’s what he believes. So, there’s your dad, except he’s a completely different person? How does that even work? About as well as you can expect. I miss my dad, of course, but I’m really starting to like eddie. I mean, we all are. Everyone except for my grandmother. You see all these happy people here? You think they’re here for eddie maine? Nah. Nah, they’re here for you. Pop, we already went over this. Curtis… this club is you. You are this club. When you — when you pulled out all those pr stops, you got this. You got this crowd here. You got them here. And it’s because of you that they’re all here to see eddie maine’s big comeback, man. Pop, we’ll talk about it later. But one thing I can say…

[ Sighs ] …Feels good to be back in the mix. And another good reason to be glad you didn’t sell this club to that woman. I haven’t really made a decision on selina’s offer yet. Marshall, curtis, I just want to thank you for supporting eddie tonight. You’re welcome. So what’s going on with you and, uh, molly? See for yourself. Tj, she’s coming over here. It’s okay, mols. Hello, you two. I hear congratulations are in order. You’re gonna be parents!

[ Chuckles ] Well, whether you want to believe it or not, I am very, very happy for you both. Okay. That’s all. You know that unwelcome guest everyone wishes would just leave already? That’s covid-19. So I got this season’s shot designed to keep up to date with recent variants.

[Thwack!] Got it? Listen, your deodorant just has to work.I use secret aluminum free. Just swipe and it lasts all day. Secret helps eliminate odor, instead of just masking it. And hours later, I still smell fresh. Secret works! Ohhh yesss. Why give your family just ordinary eggs when they can enjoy the best? Eggland’s best. The only eggs with more fresh and delicious taste. Plus, superior nutrition. Because the way we care is anything but ordinary. Schwarzkopf keratin colortransforms your ha ir and helps it break away from damage for strength and a rich striking color on all hair textures. Let the world see your strength. Schwarzkopf keratin color. My frequent heartburn had me taking antacid after antacid all day long but with prilosec otc just one pill a day blocks heartburn for a full 24 hours. For one and done heartburn relief, prilosec otc. One pill a day, 24 hours, zero heartburn. Yeah, whilecody isn’t innocent — he had to break some rules to help out sasha — but he’s not as guilty as the charges would imply. Yeah, it’s just a matter of getting the evidence to prove it. Wow. I never would have thought gladys would do something like that to sasha. But thank you for figuring it out. Yeah, we’re all grateful for that. Look, sasha’s a friend. So if there’s anything that I can do to help take down that doctor and prove yours and sasha’s innocence, just, uh, ask. Yeah. Well, my part’s done. What happens next is up to sasha. I was packing to go search for you, sasha. Really? I would go to the ends of the earth for you. Oh, is that where you were going? O-or where were you planning to look? I…thought I would check out where cody came from originally. Um, finger lakes region, right? Um, I mean, maybe he had an accomplice. Cody did not have an accomplice. But you did. What is with spencer? I couldn’t get rid of him before, and now he’s late? Trina, spencer will be here, okay? He wouldn’t miss this for anything. Aren’t you excited? Of course. I’m just… a little nervous, which is to be expected. Yeah, it is. Joss… I don’t want to back out. Spencer and I are ready to move to the next step, and I really want to explore new york with him. Did I tell you that he got us third-row center seats to “moulin rouge!”? Yes, once or twice.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

[ Gasps ] Finally. Spencer. Hey, where are you? I’m still at my grandmother’S. What? What are you doing there? I thought you said we had to — trina, we can’t go. We can’t? Why not? Ace’s daycare called, and one of the kids has chickenpox. I guess that ace was exposed and now there’s a chance that he has it. I’m really sorry, but… I can’t leave him right now.

[ Indistinct conversations in distance ]

[ Guitar strumming ]

The siren waits for me

[ Muffled ]

Siren of the sea I know she’s out there, beckoning me da-da

[ Sighs ] Hey. Hey. I’m not intruding? Oh, no, no. Come on in.

[ Door closes ] Come on in. Uh, you missed the sound check. Oh, I’m sorry. I — I didn’t want to — I didn’t want to crowd you. You know, I know that’s a technical time to work out the kinks and all of that. Truth.

[ Sighs ] Plus, I’d rather have you be there for the full effect of the, you know, on stage, in front of the audience. That’s what I’m looking forward to. Wow. You… you really aren’t nervous at all, are you? Eh, a little bit. But that’s only natural. You know, this is in my blood. It’s what I live for. It really is, isn’t it? Well, I — I —

[ Chuckles nervously ] I just — I just came here to wish you good luck, and… and I wanted to bring you a gift. Oh. That’s nice.

[ Laughs ] Dinosaurs? Yeah. Leo wanted you to have it. Ah. He said, “tell eddie to rock the house tonight.” Well…

This is such a nice gift. Thank you for coming back to give it to me. Olivia? What’s wrong? Nothing. I — I just… I just wanted to wish you good luck. Or break a leg or whatever it is… that you say. Well, with leo’s bandana and your great mojo, I’m bound to be a hit. I know you will be, eddie. And I, um, I just… I can’t wait to hear that song. Hopefully you finished it, and we really find out who that — that siren in the sea… really is. Uh, yeah. This is detective falconeri. I need a records check on a dr. Damon montague. Yeah. Priors, prescription history, job history — all that kind of stuff. Yeah, that’s right. That’s the name. Hang up.

[ Chuckles ] Okay. Yeah. Thank you. That’d be great. Yeah, as soon as you can. Thanks.

[ Sighs ] What can I do for you, scott? I’m here to see my client, cody bell. How was sasha doing? She was strong. She was ready to face gladys.

[ Breathes deeply ] I should have never left her alone. No, cody. She was determined to see this through. I — I wanted to go with her, but she refused. And if I didn’t think she was strong enough to handle this herself, I would have insisted on going with her. You know, I — I can’t help it, sam.

[ Exhales sharply ] Gladys is dangerous. She’s been able to manipulate sasha in the past. What if somehow she does it again? W-what are you talking about? What — what accomplice? Dr. Montague.

[ Chuckles nervously ] Okay. You must be confused. The court appointed the doctor. I mean… it’s perfectly u-understandable after everything you’ve been through. I get it. Why don’t you sit down? And I’ll make you some tea. I don’t want tea, gladys. And I am not confused anymore. I know exactly what you did. All I’ve ever done — steal from me! You used your position as my guardian to drain my bank accounts. You sold brando’s garage behind my back. Your own son’s blood and sweat, and you treated it like it was nothing! I told you why I had to — stop it! You stop talking right now! I know everything, gladys. Everything that has happened to me is because you were worried that you would lose your meal ticket. So when I wanted to end the guardianship, when I wanted to get control of my life… you panicked. I might discover everything you stole from me. So you got dr. Montague to help you cover it up, huh? And that’s why he prescribed me those pills. Pills that interfered with the medication I was already taking. I started hallucinating, gladys. I was paranoid and scared. You drove me to insanity. You made my life a nightmare!

[ Sobbing ] And you know what the worst part is, gladys?

[ Sniffles ] I actually… I actually thought that you loved me. How could you do something like this? How could you betray me at my lowest point when I trusted you with my entire life?! Hey, babe. Hey! Hi. Good to see you. Blaze! It is great to see you. Hey, former partner. Great to see you, too. You’ll be seeing a lot more of me. Blaze just signed with me. She’s my kick-off artist.

[ Chuckles ] Congratulations to — to both of you. No, I can see this. This is a great partnership in the making. Sorry, sorry, sorry. I got to borrow my stepdaughter for a minute. Okay. Uh, don’t go anywhere. Okay. Olivia, what’s wrong? What? Is something wrong with eddie? No, no. Eddie’s fine. I just made a complete fool of myself. W-what? What happened? I went into the green room. I was going to give him the — the — the bandana that leo wanted him to have, and he was saying thank you to me, and he pulled me in close. I thought he was trying to kiss me, but he just wanted to give me a hug. And I just… felt so embarrassed. I started babbling about “break a leg” and all this. I ran out of the room b-babbling — a complete idiot. Okay, olivia. Okay, just calm down. Just take a minute. What’s the problem? I wanted to kiss him! I wanted to kiss eddie maine! I feel so guilty. Is — is this like — it’s like — it’s like I almost cheated on my husband. With your husband, you mean?

[ Sighs ] I don’t know what I mean anymore.

[ Sighs ] You can stop checking on me, michael. I am fine. Better than fine. I just can’t take my eyes off you. You’re too beautiful. You were saying? Hey. Look over there. Isn’t that…? Oh, my god. It’s tracy. Hi. What can I get you? Uh. Scotch, rocks. Make it a double, please. You got it. Oops. Sorry. My bad.

[ Chuckles ] We meet again. Yeah, I’m here with brook lynn. Oh. She’s my new manager, you know. That’s fantastic. Congratulations. Oh, wait, so that’s what you two were so hush-hush about at charlie’s? Oh, you cracked the case. Nice. What about you? Here with a boyfriend? No. God, no. No, no, no. I-I’m here with my — my brother and his wife. They have two kids, so they don’t get a lot of alone time, and I’m just…you know, giving them their space. Well, brook lynn’s boyfriend just got here, so I’m sort of third wheel with them, too. Sounds like we should stick together. Oh, I like it. Good evening, everyone. -Hey, hey. -Hey. May I have your attention?

[ Cheers and applause ] Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you all for coming. We have a lot to celebrate tonight, but firstly, I want to send a shout out to my son, curtis. Curtis ashford, in the house.

[ Cheers and applause ] I know you have all been missing him around here, and many of you have come because of his specific invitation. Now, not only did he invite you to the greatest party this side of port charles — that’s every night except tuesdays — private parties — see the lovely n’neka.

[ Cheers and applause ] Bookings welcome. That’s a commercial, yes.

[ Chuckles ] But seriously, tonight, the savoy is so pleased to bring you a very special performer. And rumor has it he might even debut a new song. So without further ado…

skiddle de bop, shoo bop, jam, bam! Let’s give it up for eddie maine!

[ Cheers and applause ]

[ Cheers and applause continue ] Hello. Hello. Port charles! Yeah! I missed you. I missed you. Are you ready for eddie?

[ Crowd cheers ] Let’s do it!

[ Cheers and applause ]

I mean, obviously, spencer needs to stay. If ace ends up with chickenpox, he could never forgive himself for leaving. Yeah. I mean… it’s totally understandable. And besides, I have plenty to do this weekend. I really should do another draft of my essay for my art seminar. And I know ava could always use extra hands around the gallery. You know that… you don’t always have to make the best of everything, right? I mean, yeah, it’s a weekend canceled. It’s not a tragedy, but it’S… for sure a letdown, and… it’s okay to be disappointed. Even pissed off? Yeah. Even throw things. Like this? Well, that’s not exactly what I had in mind. Then again, you were always more level-headed. I was just really looking forward to it, though. Hey. I’m sorry. I’m sorry. Is there any sign of a fever? You know, ace actually seems fine. He’s sound asleep. Okay, well, I’m going to take this stuff upstairs, and I think that one of us should stay up with him, you know, just in case.

[ Cellphone chimes ] We can alternate shifts. Spencer, wait. Um… what? I just got another text from the daycare. Did cody call you to come down here and represent him tonight? Well, I always represent him. And I got a tip that you had hauled him in. And I didn’t get a call from him, so I figured you didn’t give him his call, which as you know, due process. Oh, I can see you’re worried, scott, but, look, there’s a lot of phones here. Cody could have used any one of them to call you. Yeah, yeah, but if you denied him right to counsel, that’s grounds for a heavy lawsuit there, dante. Almost hefty, even. Here. Tell you what. Why don’t you come in here? You can talk to your client. Cody, your lawyer’s here. What? Wait a minute. Why didn’t you tell me he was here? You’ve got it all wrong, sasha. Cody filled your head with lies, twisted everything around. That is not — I mean, how — how many times did you remind me to take those pills dr. Montague gave me? A-and when I started spiraling, did you — did you even think twice? Did you have a moment of remorse? Or were you just so worried that I would find out what you stole that my — my falling apart was a relief? I was never relieved. Do you have any idea what you put me through, gladys?! When I was at ferncliff, dr. Montague injected me with drugs. He kept me delirious and barely conscious. I couldn’t fight him, gladys! And when cody and i escaped, we found an unmarked bottle of pills in his jacket pocket. I think he was going to stage an od. He was going to make it seem like I had bought drugs and I took too many. Did you know that, gladys? Did you know that he was going to kill me? No! Was that part of your plan?! Oh, no, never! I never wanted him to hurt you. I did everything I could to stop him.

[ Cheers and applause ] Thank you! Thank you.

[ Cheers and applause continue ] Tracy. That’s nice of you to show up for your son’s debut. So what’d you think? I…I think you should mind your own business and go back to your wife. Come on, tracy. Don’t be that way. It’s a nice night. The family’s here to support eddie. The least you can do is get into the spirit of things. I’m here, aren’t I? And you know what? Speaking of spirit, how about you make yourself useful and go get me another drink? Scotch, rocks. With pleasure. Ned: Okay. I’m sure this next one everyone will recognize because it was originally recorded by the king, mr. Elvis presley. One, two…

[ Cheers and applause ]



[ Cheers and applause ] Thank you. Thank you very much. Thank you. For this next song, I’d like to dedicate it to someone very special, someone who has helped me find my way back to the stage. She certainly has my back, and, uh… she’s the best friend any guy could ask for. Olivia quartermaine. Play the new song, eddie! Play the new song!

[ Chuckles ] Okay. That’s marshall right over there, in case you didn’t know. Yeah, marshall is right. I — I am working on a new song, but I — I haven’t finished it yet, marshall. So I don’t think everyone here wants to hear a tune that’s half-baked. So instead, I am going to play an idle rich classic from my old eddie maine days. You ready? -Yeah. -Okay.

[ Cheers and applause ]

Got many a horse tucked under the hood

my paint is shiny, and my engine’s good

[ Laughter ]

I’m built for comfort

I’m built for speed

I’m all the man you’ll ever need

all the man you’ll ever need

ain’t no limit I won’t exceed

one night together, I’m sure you’ll concede

I’m all the man you’ll ever need

your hunting’s over, your shopping’s done

open me up, let my motor run

satisfaction is guaranteed

I’m all the man you’ll ever need

my needle’s rising up in the red

my pistons pumping, I see curves ahead

I’m gaining traction, I’m gaining speed

I’m all the man you’ll ever need

all the man you’ll ever need

ain’t no limit I won’t exceed

one night together, I’m sure you’ll concede

I’m all the man you’ll ever need

[ Cheers and applause ]

There’s only one race I don’t drive to win

the one called loving and sometimes sin

I’m a winner by nature, but this time I reckon

I’ll let you finish first, but I’ll come a close second

[ Laughter ]

All the man you’ll ever need

ain’t no limit I won’t exceed

one night together, I’m sure you’ll concede I’m all the man you’ll ever need.

[ Cheers and applause ]

All the man you’ll ever need

one night together, I’m sure you’ll concede

I’m all the man, I’m all the man

I’m all the man you’ll… ever need.

[ Cheers and applause ] That’s right! That’s right! That’s right!

[ Chuckles ]

[ Cheers and applause continue ]

[ Knocking on door ] Did you forget your key again? Spencer. Hey! [ Chuckles ] I booked us on another flight, and our car’s waiting. Well, what about the chicken pox? It was a false alarm. Yeah, the daycare texted. They said that it was just poison oak. Ace was never exposed to chicken pox at all. Really? Yeah. Yeah! -Oh, my god! -Yeah! So, I have the perfect defense. Sasha has a history of violence. She attacked the reporter. She stabbed you. So we’ll just say that she kidnapped you. No, no, and — and no. Look, scott, I appreciate what you’re trying to do, but I wasn’t kidnapped. I broke out of ferncliff, and I took sasha with me. Quiet! Okay? There’s a copper here. I…I didn’t hear anything. Did you hear anything? Not a thing. You know, we’re going to leave you two alone. You can confer with your lawyer. T-that’s not really necessary. No, I have to. If I don’t give you the benefit of counsel… no. …Cody, it could result in a real hefty fine. Bye, cody! Sam!

[ Chuckling ] Sam. Hi, scotty. Oh, man, you know, the amount of times that cody has pissed me off, I never once wished scott baldwin on him. I think cody can handle scott. I am more worried about… sasha being able to handle gladys. I swear I didn’t know what montague was doing to you. I would never have gone along with it. How can I believe anything you say, gladys? You stole from me. You lied to me… undermined my belief in my own recovery and my sanity! You claimed that you loved me. You — you drove brando and me home from the hospital the day liam died!

[ Crying ] You’re supposed to be my family! I didn’t mean for any of this… okay. I…had a problem. A losing streak. I got in over my head. I — I was gonna pay all the money back, but I kept losing it. I… I didn’t want you to find out I was borrowing from you. Didn’t want you to hate me. I just… I just needed the guardianship to go on a little bit longer. It was that montague! He’s the one who gave you those pills! And he never told me what they would do to you. And I never asked.

[ Crying ] I didn’t mean for any of this to happen, sasha. I’m so, so sorry. I’m so…sorry. Then prove it. Confess. Go to the police station and tell them everything that you did… and testify against dr. Montague so he can never do to anyone else what he did to me.

On the next “General Hospital” —

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Man, I’ve got to be home. Hey. That was the longest shift ever.

What, no kiss? Sorry. What are you so focused on? Uh, trying to find a new job since EJ Jamera fired me. That’s right. I’m, Wendy, again, I’m, I’m so sorry about that. Why? You’re not the one who got caught hacking into his phone. And, as we discussed, you told me to stay out of it. But I wouldn’t listen. I know, I know, but you were just trying to help me.

Which I obviously didn’t succeed at. Never did find proof that EJ put a hit out on your mom. And now Ava and Harris are on the run. Yeah, thanks to me, the police are hot on their trail.

This is it. Yeah. The guy at the front desk has a good pair of eyes. He seemed pretty definite that the two people staying in this room matched the description we gave him. He was kind enough to give us this. Why don’t you explain to him that we’re working with Scotland Yard and the ISA. Alright, so we’re about to pay a surprise visit to Eva and Michael’s.

Freeze! Police!

Phillip, hi. Hey. Hey, come in. Uh, yeah, um, sure, but, uh, what are you doing here? Isn’t your brother getting married today? Uh, uh, yeah, he was, but… Let me guess. Xander crashed the wedding. He sure did.

Well, what do you have to say for yourself? Okay. You know what, I actually don’t care anymore what you have to say. You kept me from my daughter long enough, I’m just gonna go back in there and tell you No, wait, you can’t! You’ve watched me.

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

No, no, no, Xander, wait, wait, wait. You said you wanted to talk. Let’s talk. Fine. You can start by explaining how you could pass off my child as Rex Brady’s. What kind of person are you, Sarah? Wait! Hang on, you and I did the exact same thing to Eric, and I don’t remember you having a problem with it then. No.

No, that was different. How? You told Eric that I was Mackenzie’s father because you didn’t want to complicate things between him and Nicole. You lied to me about Victoria out of sheer spite. No, that is not true. Yes, it is true. You kept my child’s paternity a secret, just to punish me. I did it to prevent an innocent child from being raised by a killer.

All clear. Well, if there was any indication on who those two people were.

William Thacker and Anna Scott. A. K. A. Harris Michaels and Ava Vitale. At least we know they’re still in the country. Yeah, but where are they now?

Well, luckily this place is open so late. Uh, yeah, uh, what are we doing here? Hmm? I mean, why are we here? What if we get recognized? By, let’s say, the cops or maybe one of EJ’s goons. He comes and tries to take me out. Try to relax. I mean, can I pour you some more tea?

Last night you said you trusted me. Yeah. I do. Okay. I just would feel better if we weren’t so exposed. I promise we’re fine. And sitting in that hotel room was not getting us any closer to finding Susan. What if Susan isn’t even in London? I mean, hell, what if she’s not even alive? We already talked about this.

The visions and the signs say she is. That could all be in my head. They could all be figments of my imagination. Right? I mean, hell, I mean, it could be Susan’s ghost tormenting me from beyond the grave. Yeah, but the visions aren’t the only thing that brought us here. Dr. Evans hypnotized you. You said you saw Susan stepping out of the car before it exploded.

You’re the one who told me that Susan has certain powers. Mmm. Yeah, yeah, yeah. And, uh, apparently… Said Powers helped your friend Marlena

battle Satan. Well, if she can channel Powers to bring us to London. That’d be child’s play, right? Yeah, I suppose. But, if that is true,

if she waiting for? Why hasn’t she sent us another sign?

Still, I don’t understand why you’re here. Given what just went down at the pub, I figured you’d be upset. So I had to come see you. You okay? No, but I will be. Look, I know you’re the one who told Xander he’s Victoria’s father. He said you knew because you overheard me and Rex talking. Yeah, I overheard you guys.

Crossing through the square and I probably should have kept walking, but I didn’t and I’m sorry. Hey. Hey, I wasn’t Calling you out I’m a secret like that. It’s bound to eventually come out anyway This is Salem after all That is true I just hope Rex and Sarah are as understanding as you are. Though, why would they be?

I mean, obviously Sarah didn’t want anyone to know about this, but something this big, I just couldn’t keep it from Sandra. I felt like he had the right to know. I get it, Chloe. I do. But still, I feel awful that he ruined their wedding. He didn’t. They’d already tied the knot by the time he showed up. Oh, so, Rex and Sarah are married.

But you and Xander obviously didn’t make it to New York. Oh, you knew about that? Yeah, he mentioned it at the pub. Okay, well, actually right before you got here I was talking to my mom on the phone and telling her that the wedding is off. She’d already bought it dressed. My final sale, she can’t return it.

Why should she have to? Chloe, there’s no reason you and Xander can’t still get married. Actually, there is.

You have no idea how much I hated myself over what happened with Susan. What happened to Susan?

You can’t even bring yourself to say it, can you? She went off of a cliff. She died in a horrible explosion because of you. No, Ava Vitale killed Susan after I let her go. No, she may have been driving the car. But Ava would have never gotten her hands on Susan in the first place if you hadn’t kidnapped her.

So we’re back to all this? You mean how you’re directly tied to a murder? You are damn right we are back to that. That’s just your interpretation of events. Those are not the facts, Sarah. Do you want the facts,

Xander? Here are the facts. That despite all of the years of pain and suffering that you have caused me, And pretty much everyone I know. I continued to buy your bull about being changed.

But after you, you signed on with Ava, you, you kidnapped Bonnie. And you teamed up with Gwen. Yet again. You got Susan killed.

Santa, I couldn’t stay married to you. I, I couldn’t be around you.

And I certainly wasn’t going to let… My child grew up around your toxic influence, so I did what I thought I needed to do to keep her safe. Right. So once again, Sarah Houghton played God. But not just with my life, but with my daughter’s. Because Sarah Houghton never makes a mistake. She never makes a wrong choice or a regrettable call of any kind.

Sarah Orton knows what’s best for everyone. God, it must be so nice to be so damn perfect.

How are you holding up? Stupid question. I knew you weren’t sick about it. Worried, guilt ridden. She was counting on me and that made everything worse. Tripp, you can’t blame yourself. Okay, Rafe had an eyewitness who saw Ava and Harris behind our building. I’m sure he threatened to charge you if you didn’t tell him where they were.

Yeah, he did threaten me. See? You had no choice.

I can’t believe Rafe tried to go after you for protecting your own mother. Did he say he was going to arrest you? Not exactly. Oh. Well then, how did he get You to tell him that Ava and Harris went to London. Doesn’t matter.

Wait, he didn’t get physical with you, did he? No, no, nothing like that. Okay, can we just drop it? If he didn’t. Okay, now please, just let it go. Tripp, come on. I risked my career for this. And yes, that was my choice. But I’m guessing it wasn’t your choice to send the cops after your mother, so I want to know how Rafe got you to talk.

Okay, fine. It was you. Okay? Me? Rafe said that if I didn’t give up my mom and Harris, he’d go after you.

You want a bite? It’s the last one. I am not hungry. Are you sure? I mean, they’re good.

Explain this to me, would ya? Um, first, Susan, she won’t leave me alone. Won’t stop hounding me about telling the truth, and um, keeps giving me these cryptic clues about London. So we come here, we come all the way over here, and suddenly she clams up. Why? Well, I don’t, I don’t know. I’m not an expert in this kind of thing.

But maybe she just wants us to be patient. Why would she want that? Huh? Suddenly she’s the coy clairvoyant? Maybe. Or maybe she’s just screwing with me. She doesn’t really want to be found. Hey! Suzie Q! Are you there? We’re here, and um… Why don’t you give us another damn sign, would ya?

Yeah, there you go. Ava, look. What?


Maybe I did play God. But I had to protect my daughter. She was not in any danger! Oh, because you went legit?

How many times have I heard that? How many times did you swear to me that your life of crime was over and that you were going straight? That you wanted to be a better man for me? I didn’t want that! Then why did you say yes to Ava? Because I was desperate! We were flat broke, remember? No! No, we weren’t. I was working part time at the hospital.

We were living at the mansion so that we could save. Yeah, but Victor reminded me every five seconds what a freeloader I was. You could have swallowed your pride for, for a few months. But instead you, you moved us into a roach motel and said that you were going to get a job. A respectable, high paying, and honest job.

I was going to work at the Spectator, but Jack, he, he couldn’t hire me. Because of Gwen! And then you teamed up with her to blackmail the paper away from him and Jennifer! I

tried. did

you pound the pavement? Did you? Work the phones because that, that is what people do when they are looking for a job, Xander. They don’t just get one rejection and then take to kidnapping. That is so easy for you to say. What does that mean? Pound the pavement and go where, exactly? Work the phones and call who?

Everyone in this town hates me! I was, I was drowning in debt. I had creditors breathing down my neck. I don’t, I don’t have a rich mummy offering me handouts, Sarah. Do not do that. My mother loves you like a son to this day. She wanted to help both of us. You’re right. Maggie’s an angel, but the money she was trying to give us, it came from Uncle Vic.

Who cares? I care! He took every opportunity to belittle me, and he refused to apologize. I wasn’t going to take a dime off of him! You’re very happy to take a cut of Ava’s ransom money. Not a day goes by that I don’t regret my role in Susan’s death. I made the choice that I made because… The thought of disappointing you again, Sarah, the…

The idea of failing you as a husband, as a man… It was more than I could bear. So I did what I thought I had to do.

So did I,

when I chose to make Rex the father of my baby instead of you.

I get that your new husband sharing a kid with his ex wife complicates things. But, Chloe, you and Xander can still be happy if you’re co parenting with Sarah and Rex. Tons of blended families make it work. Xander and I aren’t going to be a family or anything else. What makes you say that? Because I asked him point blank if he thought we could still get married when he found out the truth about Victoria.

And of course he tried convincing me that nothing was going to change, but we both know damn well that it, it will. It changes everything and that’s why I told him to go to the pub. I see. I’m sorry, Chloe. I know you really cared about him.

You know, people were really shocked when they found out that we fell for each other. Us included, but you know what? What we had, it was real. It was. With that being said, all the times Xander tried to assure me that he was over Sarah, I knew that he wasn’t. I knew that he had all these unresolved feelings for her.

I guess you would know something about that.

Just how much of my conversation with Rex did you overhear?

Chloe, answer me, please. Okay, I heard enough to know that you might still be in love with me.

Rafe threatened to go after me. He figured out that you were the one who doctored those passports for my mom and Harris. And he said that if I didn’t tell him what I knew, he would send in Trask. Oh my God. You made you choose between your mother and me. And you chose me? Why? Why would you do that? Isn’t it obvious?

Because I’m in love with

you. I gotta admit, Wendy Shin has skills. These look real. Yeah. Real enough to get them out of the country. Well, if they’re gonna want to go anywhere else, they’re gonna need these. Yep. Which means they’ll be back for them eventually. And we’ll be here waiting

for them. You don’t see that. See what? A plate of crumbs? Uh, no. It’s a letter E. So it’s not an S? No, it’s definitely an E. As in exactly what you wanted. You just asked Susan for a sign and here it is. Oh. You think that Susan is talking to us through a pastry? Why not? Because it’s bonkers. It’s possible.

Okay. So, um, Lady Woo Woo arranged these crumbs in the shape of a letter E. What does it mean?

Okay, so, so far Susan’s signs have been big smoke, which meant London, and now we have the letter E. So now we’re seeing messages and food? I think that’s our cue to head back to the wing. No, no, this is good. This is progress. Oh. Okay. Tell me what it means. Don’t know yet. I do. It means nothing. What, what, you’ve given up?

I thought, I thought you were, I thought you were tougher than that. Oh, I’m tough. I’m also smart enough to know that I’m not gonna waste my time on something that is obviously hopeless. Obviously hopeless? Come on, all we gotta do is figure out a way to connect the letter E to Susan Banks. It’s a piece of cake.

Or scone, in this

case. You’re really enjoying yourself, aren’t you? What can I say? I enjoy solving a good puzzle. Especially with a friend. Oh, we’re friends now, huh? Yeah, I’d say so. What about you?

Yeah, I’d say so.

You know, we should probably work on this bag of the hotel. Yeah, it would suck to get busted. Especially since we’re one step closer to finding Susan.

Alright. Talk to the guy at the front desk. He’s going to keep an eye out for Ava and Michaels. As soon as they get here, he’s going to call me. Okay. So what do we do? We just sit here?

Well, not much else we can do. Alright, well we tracked them to this hotel by using the surveillance footage from the taxi stand over at the airport. Can’t we just pull that surveillance footage from the taxi stand downstairs? I already did that. Nothing on it. So, they must have gone out the back or on foot.

Gone where? And why London? What are they even doing here? We should know. But you do know Ava. I mean, you were involved with her. Gosh. Why would she pick this location of all places? London’s a big city. Easy to get lost in. Yeah, but the U. K. has an extradition treaty with the U. S. And a former mob princess and a Navy SEAL wouldn’t know that.

Yeah. So, why wouldn’t they just go off the grid? Maybe it’s not about running from something, but trying to do something. So you think there’s a specific reason why they chose here? Did Tripp say anything that would suggest that? He was pretty tight lipped. I’m not that I blame him, I mean, I was trying to get him to grass up his girlfriend.

Grass up? We haven’t been here a full day and you’re already using the lingo? Oh, you know you love it. Whatever. Mr. Sherlock Homeboy. Who are you calling? Leave it to Sherlock.

You left me? I’ve been wanting to tell you for a while now. I almost did the first night we made love, but… But what? I was afraid you wouldn’t say it back. Why? Experience.

You mean Allie.

Tripp. Just because you said I love you to her, she didn’t say it back, that doesn’t mean the same thing will happen with me. In fact, I can guarantee you it won’t. So you mean… I love you too, Tripp. I’m in love with you. Wow, I, I feel like we should shout from rooftops or something. I have a better idea.

Chloe, I never wanted you to know how I feel about you. Why not? As you may have overheard in the square, I didn’t want to get between you and Xander. Or mess up Rex’s relationship with Sarah. So, you were willing to sacrifice your own happiness for everyone else? You sacrificed yours by telling Xander the truth.

Besides, I don’t deserve to be happy after everything I did to you and Brady. Oh, come on, Philip. You were mentally ill and you got the help that you needed. You are not the same person anymore. Maybe not. But… I know there’s no way you could ever love me again.

I’m not so sure about that.

You really… You really think Rex would be a better father than me?

Of course I do.

He’s not a criminal, for one thing. No, he’s just a liar and a serial adulterer. Have you forgotten? He cheated on you with your own sister. You seem to have no problem giving him my child to raise.

Rex has changed. He has.

Unlike you. He learns from his mistakes and he regrets hurting people. I just told you that I regret my part in Susan’s death every day. What about the spectator? Do you regret stealing that? Because Jack was your best friend.

What about the money laundering and the diamond smuggling?

Do you regret shooting Brady? Or Marlena?

What about putting Nicole in a cage? Do you have any… pangs of regret for all the psychos that you have teamed up with over the years? Like Orpheus. And Clyde Weston.

You can list every sin I’ve ever committed. All the way down to my unpaid parking tickets, but… That doesn’t give you the right to disqualify me as a father. Sarah, come on. Whatever little you think of me now, you must know I would, I would never harm my own child. You do, you do know that, right?

Sarah? Do we need to go right out here?

Go back inside, Rex. This doesn’t concern you. No, it doesn’t. Sarah’s my wife. Oh, you say that like it means something. You know, she only married you to keep up this charade. She doesn’t love you. Shut your mouth. Got a nerve, did I? Keep talking, I’m gonna hit a whole bunch of your nerves. Of all the people Sarah could spend her life pretending to care about, I can’t believe she chose the wanker who knocked up his ex behind her back.

I don’t give a damn what you believe.

It doesn’t matter. Rex and I get acquainted with my daughter? It’s not happening.

It’s, it’s getting late. We don’t have to talk about this now. No, no, no, Phillip, wait. I, I, I want to talk about it. I need to talk about it. Okay. When I thought you were dead, I guess a part of me died right along with you. And I didn’t even realize it until you showed up a few weeks ago. Right here at my doorstep, alive.

And I felt a part of me. There’s a part of me that I used to love you with all my heart and I felt that part come back to life again. Chloe… And I was denying it, okay, because of our past and because I was with Xander, but I don’t want to do that anymore. I can’t pretend like that part of me doesn’t exist.

It has been there since I was 16 years old and it’s not going away. And in fact, the more time I… And with you, the stronger it gets.

Chloe. Are you saying you still have feelings for me?

Maybe we should take this into the bedroom?

Oh, really? It’s Rafe.

Yeah, you want? Oh, what’s with the attitude, man? You threatened my girlfriend. You expect me to be polite? Just tell me what you want. Okay, fair. I have an update on your mom. Her and Michael’s were taken into custody by Scotland Yard. Is she okay? I’m not gonna lie, man. Your mother’s in serious trouble. Can’t, can’t you do something?

Yeah, I wish I could, but that’s, uh, yeah, that’s way above my pay grade, man. I mean, them coming to another country was a big mistake. They didn’t just run for the hell of it, okay? They went to London to find Susan. What? Find Susan? What, Susan Banks? She’s dead. No, no, she isn’t. My mom remembered seeing her get out of the car before it exploded, okay?

She is sure of it. If this is some kind of a trick, man… It isn’t. I I I swear, okay? Dr. Evans hypnotized her and it all came back, okay? She believes that Susan is alive and somewhere in London. If she can prove that, that would help her case, right? Well, I’ll let you know when I find her. Wait, wait, wait, wait.

You said that she was in custody? I lied.

Can you pay the check? Yeah. Also borrowed the waiter’s phone. Who are you going to call? No one. I thought we would just search the internet for clues. Search the… Wait, where are you going to search and where are you going to begin? Well, I think, uh, I think we put in Susan Banks and the letter E. And we’ll go from there.

Don’t, don’t answer that. I don’t want you to say something that you’ll regret because you’re emotional. I know I’m being emotional, Philip, but this is not some knee jerk reaction to what happened with Xander. Like I said before, I’ve… I’ve had these feelings for you for a while now. I swear, I did not come here to discuss this.

I, I know that, I know that you would not take advantage of me during a vulnerable moment and use it to get what you want. That, that’s the old Phillip. I see how much you’ve changed.

I should go.

But so you know, I’m here for you, Chloe. I always will be.

You have no claim to Victoria. She’s my flesh and blood, Rex. My name is on the birth certificate. I’m married to her mother. So in the eyes of the law, Victoria is my child, not yours. Come on. A quick DNA test will fix all that. Should be back in my arms as soon as I get the results. You want to go down that road, you’re in for a long, ugly legal battle.

And what judge in their right mind would give custody to a convicted felon over two highly respected physicians? If you think that your pathetic little threats are going to make me back down, you’re sorely mistaken. I’m going to fight harder for Victoria than I’ve ever fought for anything in my life.

And mark my words, I will win. I’m going to be part of my daughter’s life. And there’s nothing either of you two can do to stop me!

What did Rafe want? That son of a bitch just tricked me into telling him that my mom and Michaels went to London to find Susan Banks. He lied and said that they’re in police custody. Oh, damn it! How could I be so stupid? Tripp, you’re not stupid. Once again, Rafe did something really messed up to get you to talk.

Yeah, well, it worked. And now he and Jada are probably closing in on my mom and Michael as we speak. Susan Banks is alive? I thought she died when Ava drove her off the cliff. They never found her remains. Well, the car exploded. I mean, would there be any remains? We just assumed that she was incinerated.

Now Tripp says that Ava remembers seeing Susan get out of the car right before it caught on fire. And Susan supposedly came here. That’s what Tripp said. I don’t know, Rafe. He sounds like a son desperate to get his mother off the hook. Maybe. But it is Salem. Dead people turning out not to be dead. Not all that unusual.

So, for argument’s sake, let’s say Susan Banks is alive. What brought her to London? Man, there’s a ton here on Susan, but nothing that links her to the letter key.

Try crumbs. What? Add crumbs to the search. Yeah, zero comes up. Yeah, just try it. It’s possible. Okay, okay. Susan Banks and… Crumbs. Here we go.

Holy cow. What? Oh, come on, you find something? Yeah, it’s a, it’s like a newspaper article from like 25 years ago. It looks like a wedding announcement. Read it. Susan Banks of Salem, USA ties the knot in merry old England to Edmund P.Crumb.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

[ Relaxing music ]

[ Door slams ]

Taylor: You know, you might be the only person who doesn’t have to worry about locking the door when sheila carter’s on the loose.

Finn: What are you doing here? I– I thought you were in europe with steffy.

Taylor: Well, I was– I was and now I’m back here. To talk some sense into you.

Sheila: I– I don’t know what I did to deserve you. Everything that you’ve done for me. Using your connections to make sure that the judge set me free. I like… I have no words.

Deacon: You have actually nothing to say? Wait, wait, hang on a second, let me…

Sheila: What are you doing?

Deacon: I’m just looking for flying pigs.

Sheila: Stop it. You set me free. You gave me back my life and I’m– I’m not gonna forget that. I’m gonna be grateful to you forever, deacon.

Donna: I, uh, just checked on eric and he’s– he’s still lying down.

Rj: Well, that’s good. I mean, he needs to rest. We can see how stressed he is.

Donna: I mean, he’s– he’s poured so much of himself into this collection. You know, he’s– he has a lot riding on this, you know. His reputation. His– his pride.

Rj: Donna, you know that I would do anything to help him, but–

Donna: But he’s compromised. I know. He can’t sketch and he’s frustrated. I hate to see him like this.

Rj: I think I need to tell my dad. He– he needs to know the truth.

Ridge: This is ridiculous. We can’t do it. We can’t do two collections on one budget. It’s impossible.

Brooke: And taking money out of hope for the future doesn’t make sense. We should be reinvesting in that line and capitalizing on its success.

Ridge: None of this makes sense. My dad shouldn’t be doing this at all. He should be at home relaxing or– or helping the next generation.

Carter: Well, I’ve spoken to eric and I don’t see him backing down.

Ridge: There is no way we can produce a collection on this budget.

Carter: I don’t disagree, but you pay me to make sure the numbers add up and it’d be foolish to overextend ourselves. This is the budget we have to work with and that means cuts.

Brooke: Carter, you mentioned earlier that ridge should talk to rj. Beginning to think that that might be the best idea. Maybe he can find out what’s going on with eric.

Donna: Okay. Look, I– I– I understand why you’d want to open up to your father, but I’m afraid eric would feel really betrayed.

Rj: I know that. I– I know that he would feel really betrayed. I get it. I understand, I agree with you, but I don’t know what to do right now. I feel really stuck. And I– I don’t think this is good for him anymore.

Donna: Look, I– I just think that walking away at this point in time, rj, would really hurt eric. Please keep working with your granddad on this. Please. Give him this final collection and please, don’t tell ridge about his father.

Deacon: Look, I hated seeing you in prison. I had a favor to call in. I decided to help a friend.

Sheila: Mm. A– a friend, huh?

Deacon: Maybe a little more than a friend.

Sheila: Well, I am never going to forget it. And if you ever need me to help you with a favor, you know that I’m– I’m more than willing.

Deacon: Got a couple of ideas.

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Sheila: All right. Now, I just wanna sit down and kick off my shoes and relax.

Deacon: You know, I love that about you. You got no problem just, uh, showing your nine little piggies.

Sheila: Why should I? No one can say that I was not committed to a plan.

Deacon: Some people might say that cutting off your own toe to fake your own death should get you committed.

Sheila: Hm. Are you calling me c-r-a-z-y?

Deacon: No, no, no, not the c word. I, uh, I would say maybe eccentric. Extreme.

Sheila: Hm. How about passionate?

Deacon: Hm.

Sheila: Devoted?

Deacon: Those words work too.

Sheila: Because that’s exactly what I am. I am definitely passionate, devoted, committed, to my son.

Deacon: That is just wildly inappropriate timing.

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Sheila: I would do anything to remain a part of finn and hayes’s lives.

Deacon: Yeah.

Sheila: Hey, and yours too, deacon.

Deacon: That’s better.

Carter: Look, I’m gonna step out. I will work on the numbers. Maybe there’s a way I can minimize the cuts.

Brooke: Okay. Do what you can. In the meantime, ridge is going to have to talk to rj. And you will have to get him to convince eric that all of you are going to collaborate on one couture line.

Ridge: I’ll try.

Carter: Look, I talked to eric earlier and I didn’t get the impression he wants to collaborate. Get back to you later with the new numbers.

Ridge: Thank you, carter.

Brooke: I’m sorry. I can see how upset you are. But I have to believe that everything is going to work out for the best.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Yeah.

Rj: I thought you were as concerned about granddad as I am.

Donna: I am. Of– of– of course I am. My god, I– he was so excited when he first started this, and– and then as time has gone on, his– his condition is just getting worse. I mean, even when he plays the piano now, he uses his left hand only. It just hurts to see him like this.

Rj: You’re listing reasons why I should just tell my dad. This is serious.

Donna: Listen, you don’t understand. You’re not– you’re not just helping him realize his– his vision here. You’re giving him hope. He needs us rj. He needs you.

Rj: I wanna be there for him. Obviously, I wanna be there for him. I’m gonna cherish working on this with him for the rest of my life. But I– we’re not helping him by keeping this a secret.

Donna: You are. You’re giving him drive and purpose. I– I mean, you can’t just let him feel useless. Eric forrester has to go out on top. Please, rj, please don’t give up on your granddad.

Finn: How are steffy and the kids?

Taylor: Well, you know, I mean, they’re– they’re settling in.

Finn: I just– I– I miss them so much. You know, this– this whole situation is killing me.

Taylor: Well, they miss you too. But then, I mean, the– the kids are okay. You know, considering all the disruption their lives have had lately. First moving to eric’s, now to europe.

Finn: You know, I hate the impact that this is having on them.

Taylor: Well, you’re not with them, so of course it’s having an impact. But, you know, you can start to make this right. You can take the necessary moves to assure steffy that sheila will not be in your lives again. It’s the only way your wife is coming back home.

Sheila: I mean it. No one has ever defended and supported me like you.

Deacon: Everyone deserves a second chance. And everyone deserves to be loved.

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Sheila: You have no idea what that means to me. Subject 1: Who’s that?

Taylor: Finn, I– I get the connection between a birth mother and her child, but this is sheila that we’re talking about. She’s never been a loving mother. That has always been li’s role.

Finn: No, I know that, okay? And I have told li that.

Taylor: No, you… I just don’t understand what’s happening. So sheila shot you, right? And yes, it was an accident. It was an accident because she meant to shoot steffy, but she still left you both for dead in the alley. Her intention was to kill the mother of your child and take away the love of your life. What kind of loving mother does that to a son and her grandson?

Finn: Taylor, you’re not telling me anything I don’t already know, okay? You can’t imagine the guilt that I feel. Being apart from steffy and the kids is absolutely killing me.

Taylor: Then do something about it, finn! Step up! Prove to steffy that it is safe to come home to you!

Sheila: So, how do you know judge scott?

[ Deacon laughing ]

Deacon: That is, uh, that’s a long– that’s a long story.

Sheila: Really? Long story? Well, I– I’ve got nothing but time thanks to you.

Deacon: We go way back.

Sheila: I had no idea you were so well connected.

Deacon: Didn’t keep me from landing in the slammer, did it?

Sheila: I guess all those times you visited me in prison, it, uh, brought up some bad memories, huh?

Deacon: I guess mostly it just killed me to see you locked up. Sheila, don’t get me wrong. I’m not naive. I know you’ve done some terrible things.

Sheila: Yeah. But I’ve– I’ve taken responsibility for all of those things. I’m– I’m not the same person anymore.

Deacon: That’s exactly what I told the judge. People can change, sheila. Look, I’m a perfect example of that.

Sheila: I have changed. And a big reason why, deacon… is you.

Brooke: I see the toll this is taking on you, being at odds with eric. I know how much you love him and respect him.

Ridge: I do. I just want him to be happy, you know.

Brooke: Well, I’m just gonna believe that this is all gonna work out for the best. And just know that I’m always on your side.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Mm-hmm.

Ridge: I like that.

[ Brooke giggles ] But why is my dad doing this? Why’s he putting rj right in the middle?

Rj: I can tell you why, dad.

Whenever you’re hungry,

Ridge: I’m glad you’re here. Your mom and I were talking about your granddad and he just, um– he hasn’t been himself lately.

Brooke: We’re worried that this fashion challenge might be taking a toll on him.

Ridge: And don’t get this wrong. We’re– we’re glad that you’re designing, that you’re working with him. It’s amazing, but, uh, if there’s something else going on with my dad, I need to know.

Brooke: You can tell us anything, rj. You’re not gonna be betraying your grandfather. We just want to help.

Ridge: You said before, you said that– that you knew what it was. So, what is it?

Donna: Please keep working

with your granddad on this.


Give him this final collection.

And please, don’t tell ridge

about his father.

Rj: You have to understand. Granddad, he needs to do this collection. I think it’s gonna be the most important collection of his entire career. And I just wish that you wouldn’t stand in his way. I think you need to give him the support that he needs and the support that he deserves.

Ridge: That’s it?

Rj: Yeah, that’s it.

Finn: I will do everything in my power to keep sheila away from my family. I’ll stop at nothing to make sure that they’re safe. You believe that.

Taylor: You and steffy were torn apart, not too long ago, and that was all sheila’s fault.

Finn: Yeah, but we found our way back to each other because my love for her wouldn’t keep us apart. It’s me. It’s me.

[ Both panting ] I found you. Steffy, it’s me. It’s really me.

Steffy: Oh. Oh, my god.

[ Steffy crying ]

Steffy: Oh.

Finn: It’s me, it’s me.

[ Bell tolls ] With my love for your daughter, it gave me the strength to fight my way back to her and I swore we would never be apart again. And I promise you, I will never stop fighting for her and my family. You can count on that.

Taylor: Okay, then deal with sheila. Just do it. I don’t care what you do. Just get her out of your life. You just promised me that– that– that you would not let any harm come to your family. So you need to do whatever you can to make sure that happens.

Deacon: You’ve changed me too, sheila.

Sheila: For the better?

Deacon: Jury’s still out.

[ Sheila chuckles ]

Sheila: Thank goodness you’re the only jury I have to worry about. I’m never gonna forget what you did for me. The lengths that you went to, to secure my freedom. You have no idea what that means to me.

Deacon: I have a pretty good idea.

Sheila: I know that we, uh, we decided we weren’t going to see each other anymore.

Deacon: It’s just too dangerous.

Sheila: Yeah. I know. I– I know. I– I wouldn’t want you to risk your relationship with hope. You’ve worked so hard for everything that you have right now. The restaurant, the love and respect of your family. I would never wanna take that away from you. But you are– you’re living proof of– you’re a perfect example of how things can be if people see that you’ve changed.

[ Sheila chuckles ] I promise I’m not gonna just pop in, stop by, even though you’ve got to admit it was a lot of fun.

Deacon: Yeah, and to think I used to hate surprises.

[ Sheila laughs ]

Sheila: Yeah. Well, I’m never gonna forget everything that you did. Thank you.

[ Sheila sighs ] Uh, goodbye.

Deacon: Sheila, wait, wait, wait. Look, maybe I’m the crazy one, but I’ve been alone too long.

Sheila: What are you saying?

Deacon: I don’t want to be alone anymore.

Days Update Wednesday, September 27, 2023

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Tripp comes home and tells Wendy that he’s glad to be home from the longest shift ever. Tripp asks about Wendy being distracted on her laptop. Wendy reminds him that she’s trying to find a new job since EJ fired her. Tripp tells her that he’s so sorry about that. Wendy asks why since he’s not the one who got caught hacking EJ’s phone and Tripp told her to stay out of it, but she wouldn’t listen. Tripp knows she was just trying to help him. Wendy says she obviously didn’t succeed since she never found proof that EJ put a hit on Ava. Tripp adds that now thanks to him, the police are hot on Harris and Ava’s trail.

Rafe and Jada arrive in London and approach the hotel room where Ava and Harris were said to be staying. They open the door with guns raised but find it empty.

Philip shows up at Chloe’s door. Chloe invites him in but asks what he’s doing here when Rex is getting married today. Philip confirms that he was. Chloe guesses that Xander crashed the wedding which Philip confirms.

Outside the Pub, Xander asks what Sarah has to say for herself. Xander decides he doesn’t care what she has to say because she kept him from his daughter long enough, so he’s just going to take her. Sarah stops him and says he can’t but Xander tells her to watch him. Sarah stops him and reminds him that he said he wanted to talk. Xander tells her to start by explaining how she could pass off his child as Rex Brady’s. Xander questions what kind of person she is. Sarah argues that they did the exact same thing to Eric and he didn’t have a problem with it then. Xander argues that it was different because Sarah didn’t want to complicate things for Eric and Nicole while she lied to him about Victoria out of sheer spite to punish him. Sarah declares that she did it to prevent an innocent child from being raised by a killer.

Rafe and Jada search the hotel room. Jada opens a drawer and finds the fake passports. They conclude that Ava and Harris are still in the country. Rafe wonders where they are now.

Harris and Ava eat together at a cafe. Ava worries about getting recognized by the cops or one of EJ’s goons. Harris encourages her to relax and reminds her that she said she trusted him. Ava says she does but she’d feel better if they weren’t so exposed. Harris promises they are fine and says staying in their hotel room wasn’t getting them any closer to finding Susan. Ava complains that they don’t even know if Susan is in London or even alive. Harris brings up the visions which Ava argues could all be in her head as just figments of her imagination. Ava says it could be Susan’s ghost tormenting her from beyond the grave. Harris brings up Marlena hypnotizing Ava. Ava questions what Susan is waiting for if this was her intention and why she hasn’t sent them another sign.

Chloe doesn’t understand why Philip is here still. Philip says after what went down at the Pub, he figured she would be upset so he had to come see her. Philip asks if she’s okay. Chloe admits that she’s not but she will be. Philip knows Chloe is the one who told Xander that he’s Victoria’s father. Chloe confirms that she overheard Philip and Rex in the town square and apologizes. Philip understands a secret like that is bound to come out in Salem. Chloe hopes that Rex and Sarah are as understanding as he is, but questions why they would be when Sarah didn’t want Xander to know. Chloe cries that she couldn’t keep something so big from Xander and she felt he deserved to know. Chloe feels bad that Xander ruined the wedding but Philip reveals that he didn’t since Rex and Sarah had already tied the knot by the time Xander showed up. Philip points out that Chloe and Xander obviously didn’t make it to New York. Chloe says she was just telling her mom on the phone that the wedding is off. Philip tells Chloe that there’s no reason she and Xander can’t still get married. Chloe responds that there actually is.

Xander tells Sarah that she has no idea how much he hated himself over what happened to Susan. Sarah asks if he can’t even bring himself to say it. Sarah states that Susan went off a cliff and died in a horrible explosion because of him. Xander argues that Ava killed Susan after he let her go. Sarah complains that Ava never would have gotten her hands on Susan if Xander didn’t kidnap her in the first place and insists that he is directly tied to a murder. Xander disagrees that those are the facts. Sarah tells Xander that despite all of the years of pain and suffering that he’s caused her and everyone she knows, she continued to buy his bull about being changed. Sarah goes over Xander signing on with Ava, kidnapping Bonnie, and teaming up with Gwen yet again. Sarah tells Xander that he got Susan killed and she knew she couldn’t stay married to him or even be around him, so she certainly wasn’t going to let her child grow up around his toxic influence, so she did what she thought she needed to do to keep her child safe. Xander remarks that once again Sarah played God, with not just his life, but his daughter’s. Xander mocks that Sarah never makes a bad choice and knows what’s best for everyone because she’s perfect.

Wendy tells Tripp that she knows he’s worried sick about Ava. Tripp feels Ava was counting on him and he made everything worse. Wendy encourages that he can’t blame himself since Rafe had an eye witness who saw Harris and Ava behind their building. Tripp notes that Rafe did threaten him, so Wendy points out that he had no choice. Wendy can’t believe Rafe went after him for protecting his own mother and asks if he threatened to arrest him. Tripp says not exactly so Wendy asks how Rafe got him to tell him that Ava and Harris were in London. Tripp tells her that it doesn’t matter and wants her to drop it but Wendy demands to know, so Tripp gives in and admits that Rafe said if he didn’t tell him where Ava and Harris were, he would go after Wendy.

Ava tells Harris that she’s not hungry and goes over how Susan wouldn’t leave her alone about telling the truth with cryptic clues and now she clams up. Harris admits he’s no expert but suggests maybe Susan wants them to be patient. Ava wonders if Susan is just screwing with her and doesn’t want to be found. Ava tries calling out to Susan to give them another sign. Harris then shows Ava that the remaining crumbs on his plate have formed an E.

Sarah tells Xander that maybe she did play God but she had to protect her daughter. Xander argues that she wasn’t in any danger. Sarah asks how many times Xander swore his life in crime was over and that he wanted to be a better man for her. Xander argues that he was desperate and reminds her that they were broke. Sarah reminds him that she was working part time at the hospital and they were living at the Kiriakis Mansion. Xander complains that was Victor calling him a free loader all the time. Sarah argues that he could’ve swallowed his pride for a few months, but instead he moved them in to a roach motel and said he was going to get a respectable, honest job. Xander talks about how he was going to work at the Spectator but Jack couldn’t hire him. Sarah brings up how Xander teamed up with Gwen to blackmail the paper away from Jack and Jennifer. Xander states that he tried. Sarah questions if he did try instead of taking one rejection and turning to kidnapping. Xander complains that it’s so easy for her to say since everyone in the town hates him while he was drowning in debt. Xander remarks that he doesn’t have a rich mom offering him handouts. Sarah argues that Maggie loves Xander like a son and she wanted to help both of them. Xander argues that the money that Maggie offered them came from Victor. Sarah asks who cares. Xander shouts that Victor took every chance to belittle him, so he was not going to take a dime from him. Sarah points out that Xander was very happy to take a cut of Ava’s ransom money. Xander says every day he regrets his role in Susan’s death but he made the choice he made because he didn’t want to disappoint and fail Sarah as a husband and a man. Xander declares that he did what he thought he had to do. Sarah responds that she did too when she chose to make Rex the father of her baby instead of him.

Philip gets that Chloe’s new husband sharing a kid with his ex-wife complicates things, but feels they could still be happy while co-parenting with Sarah and Rex. Chloe cries that she and Xander are not going to be a family or anything else because she asked him point blank and he tried to say nothing would change but they both know that Xander being the father of Victoria will change everything, so that’s why she told him to go to the Pub. Philip tells Chloe that he’s sorry as he knows she really cared about Xander. Chloe brings up that people were really shocked that she and Xander fell for each other, but cries that what they had was real. Chloe talks about Xander always assuring her that he was over Sarah, but she knew he wasn’t and that he had unresolved feelings for her. Chloe guesses Philip would know something about that. Philip asks how much of his conversation with Rex she overheard. Chloe admits that she heard enough to know that Philip might still be in love with her.

Wendy questions Tripp about Rafe threatening to go after her. Tripp explains that Rafe figured out that Wendy was the one who doctored the passports and said if he didn’t tell him what he knew, he would send in Melinda Trask. Wendy realizes that Rafe made him choose between her and his mother and he chose her. Wendy questions why he would do that. Tripp tells Wendy that it’s because he’s in love with her.

Jada admits Wendy has skills since the fake passports look real, but if they’re going to want to leave the country, they will need them. Rafe states that they have to come back eventually, so they will be there waiting for them.

Harris points out the crumbs spelling out the letter E to Ava and calls it exactly what she wanted. Harris declares that this is the sign from Susan. Ava questions thinking Susan is talking to them through a pastry. Harris calls it possible. Ava asks what the E is supposed to mean then. Harris goes over how Susan’s signs have been Big Smoke which meant London and now the letter E. Ava questions seeing messages in food. Harris calls it progress. Ava asks again what it means. Harris says he doesn’t know yet. Ava says it means nothing. Harris questions her giving up. Ava calls it obviously hopeless. Harris remarks that they just have to figure out a way to connect the letter E to Susan Banks. Harris adds that he enjoys solving a good puzzle, especially with a friend. Ava asks if they are friends now. Harris says he would say so and Ava agrees. Ava suggests they should work on this back at the hotel. Harris comments that it would suck to get busted since they are one step closer to finding Susan.

Rafe tells Jada that he told the front desk to keep an eye out for Ava and Harris and to call him when he sees them. Jada asks if they are just supposed to sit here. Rafe says there isn’t much else they can do. Jada talks about tracking them from the taxi stand and asks about the security footage. Rafe says they already checked but there was nothing on it so they must have either gone on foot or out back. Jada questions why London and what they are even doing here. Jada brings up Rafe being involved with Ava and asks why she would pick London of all places. Rafe calls it a big city easy to get lost in. Jada questions why they wouldn’t just go off the grid. Rafe suggests maybe it’s not running away but running to something. Rafe then pulls out his phone.

Wendy questions Tripp saying he loves her. Tripp admits he’s been wanting to tell her for awhile now and he almost did on the first night they made love, but he was afraid she wouldn’t say it back because of his past experience with Allie. Wendy states that just because Allie didn’t say it back doesn’t mean the same thing will happen with her. Wendy guarantees it won’t as she tells Tripp that she loves him too and she’s in love with him. Tripp jokes that they should shout it from the rooftops. Wendy says she has a better idea and kisses him.

Philip tells Chloe that he never wanted her to know how he feels about her. Chloe asks why not. Philip points out that he didn’t want to get in between her and Xander or mess up with Rex’s relationship with Sarah. Chloe questions Philip being willing to sacrifice his own happiness for everyone else. Philip notes that Chloe sacrificed her happiness by telling Xander the truth. Philip feels he doesn’t deserve to be happy after everything he did to Chloe and Brady. Chloe understands he was mentally ill but got the help he needed and he’s not the same person anymore. Philip says maybe not, but he knows there’s no way she could ever love him again. Chloe is not so sure about that.

Xander questions Sarah really thinking Rex would be a better father than him. Sarah says of course she does because Rex is not a criminal. Xander argues that Rex is a liar and a serial adulterer, reminding Sarah that he cheated on her with her own sister. Sarah argues that Rex has changed, unlike Xander, as he learned from his mistakes and regrets hurting people. Xander repeats that he regrets his part in Susan’s death every day. Sarah asks if he regrets stealing the Spectator since Jack was his best friend. Sarah asks about the money laundering and the diamond smuggling. Sarah asks if he regrets shooting Brady and Marlena or putting Nicole in a cage. Sarah brings up all the psychos that Xander has teamed up with over the years like Orpheus and Clyde Weston. Xander says she can list every one of his sins but that doesn’t give her the right to disqualify him as a father. Xander declares that no matter how little she thinks of him now, she must know he would never harm his own child. Rex comes out from the Pub and asks if everything is alright. Xander tells Rex to go back inside because this doesn’t concern him. Rex responds that it does because Sarah is his wife. Xander argues that it doesn’t mean anything since Sarah only married him to keep his secret and she doesn’t love him. Rex tells him to shut up. Xander asks if he hit a nerve. Rex warns that he’ll hit a bunch of his nerves if he keeps talking. Xander complains that he can’t believe Sarah chose Rex of all people. Sarah doesn’t give a damn what Xander believes and states that she and Rex are married. Xander tells them to go off on their honeymoon then while he gets acquainted with his daughter. Rex stands in Xander’s way and tells him that’s not happening.

Philip tells Chloe that it’s getting late so they don’t have to talk about this now but Chloe says she wants to and needs to. Chloe explains that when she thought Philip was dead, a part of her died with him and she didn’t even realize it until he showed up alive a few weeks ago and she felt the part of her that used to love him with all her heart come back to life again. Chloe admits she was denying it because of their past and because she was with Xander but she doesn’t want to do that anymore as she can’t pretend that part doesn’t exist since it’s been with her since she was 16 years old. Chloe tells Philip that the more time she spends with him, the stronger it gets. Philip asks if she’s saying she still has feelings for him.

Tripp and Wendy continue kissing until Wendy suggests taking it to the bedroom but they get interrupted by Tripp getting a call from Rafe. Tripp answers and asks what Rafe wants. Rafe questions his attitude. Tripp says he threatened his girlfriend and expects him to be polite as he just asks what he wants. Rafe says that’s fair and tells Tripp that he has an update on his mom. Rafe claims to Tripp that Ava and Harris were taken in to custody. Tripp asks if Ava is okay. Rafe tells him that Ava is in serious trouble. Tripp asks if he can do something. Rafe claims he wishes he could but it’s out of his pay grade and that they shouldn’t have gone to another country. Tripp then reveals what Rafe wanted and states that they didn’t go to London to run, but to find Susan. Rafe questions if he means Susan Banks when she’s dead. Tripp explains that Ava remembered seeing Susan get out of the car before the explosion and she’s sure of it. Rafe asks if this is some sort of trick. Tripp swears that it isn’t and tells Rafe about Marlena hypnotizing Ava and that Ava believes Susan is alive and somewhere in London. Tripp asks if finding Susan will help Ava’s case. Rafe responds that he’ll let him know when he finds her. Tripp thought he said Ava was in custody. Rafe admits that he lied and hangs up.

Harris steals the waiter’s phone to use it to search the internet for clues. Ava questions where to begin. Harris suggests putting in Susan Banks and the letter E, then going from there.

Philip tells Chloe not to answer because he doesn’t want her to say something she will regret because she’s emotional. Chloe insists this is not some knee jerk reaction to what happened with Xander as she’s had feelings for Philip for awhile now. Philip swears that he did not come to discuss this. Chloe acknowledges that he did not take advantage of her while she was vulnerable to get what he wants as that’s the old Philip. Chloe sees how much he has changed. Philip feels he should go. Philip tells Chloe that he’s here for her and always will be. Philip then exits the apartment.

Rex tells Xander that he has no claim to Victoria. Xander argues that she is his flesh and blood. Rex points out that his name is on the birth certificate and he’s married to her mother, so in the eyes of the law, Victoria is his daughter, not Xander’s. Xander complains that a quick DNA test will fix that. Rex warns him about a long, ugly legal battle and asks what judge would grant custody to a convicted felon over two highly respected physicians. Xander warns that his threats won’t make him back down and he’s going to fight harder for Victoria than he’s ever fought in his life. Xander shouts that he’s going to be part of his daughter’s life and there’s nothing either of them can do to stop him. Xander then walks away.

Wendy asks Tripp what Rafe wanted. Tripp complains that Rafe just tricked him in to telling him that Ava and Harris went to London to find Susan Banks by lying that they were in police custody. Tripp questions how he could be so stupid. Wendy says Rafe did something really messed up to get him to talk. Tripp worries that it worked and now they are closing in on Ava and Harris as they speak.

Jada questions Rafe about Susan being alive. Rafe points out that Susan’s remains were never found so they just assumed they were incinerated in the explosion but now Tripp says that Ava remembers seeing Susan escape the car right before it caught on fire. Jada questions Susan coming to London. Rafe says that’s what Tripp said. Jada worries that Tripp could just be desperate to get his mother off the hook. Rafe points out that it is Salem where dead people turning out not to be dead is not all that unusual. Rafe wonders if Susan is alive, what brought her to London.

Harris can’t find anything linking Susan to the letter E. Ava jokes that he should add crumbs to the search, so Harris searches Susan Banks and crumbs. Harris then finds a newspaper article from 25 years ago that looks like a wedding announcement. Harris reads that it’s about Susan tying the knot in England to Edmund P. Crumb and shows Ava a photo of them.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Victor: And I’m returning as ceo of my company. Send that out to everyone. Now, read it back to me, please. After that, newman enterprises will be stronger than ever. And that includes me. This company will continue to prosper and innovate, all right? Send this to everyone. Thank you. Nate! How the hell are you?

Nate: Ah, fine, victor, thanks. Uh, just wanted to see how you were settling in.

Victor: Yeah, well…

[ Victor chuckles ] …I appreciate your interest. So, um, everyone is ready to go, I think. Are you?

Nate: Absolutely.

Victor: Good.

Nate: And you look right at home, where you belong.

Victor: You bet.

Nate: Well, I am sure you are very busy, so I will leave you to–

Victor: No, one– one second. Just stick around for a moment. I would like to ask you a few questions about adam.

Jack: Good morning, adam.

Adam: Good morning, jack. Hey, congratulations, by the way. I heard you and diane got married.

Jack: Well, thank you. I appreciate that. We haven’t had too many well-wishers.

Adam: Well, I wish you both all the best.

Jack: I appreciate that, and I hope you know i want the best for you as well.

Adam: From your tone, I’m guessing you’ve heard the best is not what I’m getting, lately. But yes, you’re– you’re right. Things have been a little rough since I’ve been fired from newman.

Jack: Yeah, I imagine that was quite a blow.

Adam: But hey, I will survive, right?

Jack: I have no doubt at all. So, thank you for meeting me today.

Adam: Yeah, I– I wasn’t surprised to hear from you. I heard billy tapped you as chief negotiator.

Jack: No, actually, I wanted to meet with you, to talk about tucker and whatever dirt you might have on him.

Adam: Yeah, ’cause you and i have a better relationship than I have with billy.

Jack: I would call it less explosive.

Adam: Yeah, that’s true.

Jack: So, tell me, what have you got? I’m interested.

Adam: Well, how interested are you?

Jack: Enough to pay for it. Within reason.

Adam: I don’t really have a reputation of being reasonable, jack.

Jack: Well, I imagined you’d be more reasonable with me than with my brother.

Adam: Yeah. Maybe.

Jack: Could I ask one more favor? Could we not play the game of who has the better offer and jump right to the end point? Name your price.

Victoria: You’re not fooling me, you know.

Nikki: What?

Victoria: You casually suggested that we meet up for coffee before going into the office because you want to suss me out. You want to check my mood before we go in to see dad.

Nikki: I don’t need an excuse to have coffee with my daughter.

Victoria: Mom.

Nikki: I thought it would be a nice way to start our day. Have a more pleasant experience at the office. Better than yesterday.

Victoria: I’m fine. I put my anger aside.

Nikki: I know your father returning to newman as ceo is not what you wanted.

Victoria: Would you please stop worrying? You’re not gonna have issues from me going forward.

Nikki: So, you have accepted his decision?

Victoria: I have accepted that dad’s coming back to run his company. I’m not gonna be dancing in the streets about it, no.

Nikki: And you’re willing to work alongside him?

Victoria: Well, what else would I do?

Nikki: Have you heard from your brother? He was supposed to get back from his east coast trip this morning.

Victoria: I’ve called him a few times, but he hasn’t returned any of my calls.

Nikki: Anything pressing that you need to talk to him about?

Victoria: No, I just want to touch base with him.

Nikki: Hm.

Victoria: What?

Nikki: Well, if your motives are as obvious to your brother as they are to me, I suspect he’s trying to avoid you.

Victoria: What are you talking about?

Nikki: You’re going to try to talk him into coming back to newman enterprises. As an ally.

[ Both sighing ]

[ Sally chuckling ]

Adam: I’m sorry. That was, um, that was a mistake.

Sally: Yeah. Yeah, yeah, it was.

Adam: Well, in my defense, um, it wasn’t me that kissed you it was, my, um, champagne brain. Would you, uh, mind if we just pretend like that never happened?

Sally: Pretend what never happened? I– I don’t know, what’s your hang-up?

Adam: Thank you. Good night.

Sally: You’re welcome. And, yeah, good night.

Adam: Okay.

[ Knocking on door ]

[ Sighs ]

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Sally: Oh! That was quite a homecoming.

Nick: You must have really missed me.

Sally: Oh, you have no idea. The flowers were beautiful, by the way.

Nick: You are welcome.

Sally: Okay. I wanna hear all about your trip.

Nick: First, I want to hear about the next great interior design company. Did I mention how smart your business plan is?

Sally: You have, yeah. But I mean, I wouldn’t mind hearing it again. Maybe this time you could use the word “amazing.”

Nick: I can do that. It’s amazing. So amazing! You’re amazing.

Sally: Thank you. Yeah, I’ve just been immersed in color palettes and all different types of tiles and accent furniture. Oh, and your finance team finally set up my account, so… it’s all coming together.

Nick: You seem really happy.

Sally: I am happy. And I’m excited, and I am very grateful for you making this into a reality.

Nick: I’m just the backer. This is your vision. I’m just sorry you took so long to let me help you with this. Why did you do that again?

Sally: Well, ’cause I’m stubborn.

Nick: Yeah, you really are, but I kinda like it, it works for you.

Sally: Yeah. It took me a while to get here, but I’m here. And now I see all the possibilities for this business, and I cannot wait to make it a reality.

Nick: Well, I’m gonna continue to do everything I can to bring you as much excitement as possible.

Sally: It’s really nice to have something positive to focus on.

Nick: So, how was everything else while I was gone? How was adam? Did he, uh, bother you while I was out of town?

Adam: Well, jack, I admire your directness, as always.

Jack: We’re both busy men. Who has time for games?

Adam: I agree. You know, billy was pushing me for a straight answer last time and I shut him down.

Jack: Well, it’s me now. What have you got?

Adam: I’ve been thinking about what I would want in return and to tell you the truth, you or billy, at the moment, you don’t have anything that benefits me.

Jack: You’re not maybe looking for a little leverage?

Adam: No, in the past I probably would have tried to weasel a job out of this. I mean, I am technically unemployed at the moment.

Jack: I already offered you a job.

Adam: Yeah, that’s true. And if I was gonna make a play for something, I probably would go for billy’s job, co-ceo.

Jack: The position you had before and walked away from.

Adam: Yes, the irony is not lost on me.

Jack: You having second thoughts about leaving jabot?

Adam: I wasn’t suited for your company. And besides, most of your family, they– they hate me, jack.

Jack: And that’s it?

Adam: Okay, maybe I sabotageda go thing. I am prone to doing that.

Jack: How ’bout funding? Surely, you’ve given some thought to starting something on your own.

Adam: No, I d– I don’t need the money.

Jack: Okay, I got a wild idea. How about giving me the information I’ve asked for without any strings attached?

Adam: How does that serve me?

Jack: I take the information you gave me and I use it against tucker. And you have the unbridled joy of watching tucker mccall fail.

Lily: Okay, you ready?

Devon: Uh, yep.

Lily: All righty. Hi, jill.

Devon: How’s it going?

Jill: It’s good to see both of you. So, tell me what you’ve found out. What is the latest?

Devon: Well, unfortunately, we don’t have as much to report as we’d like.

Lily: No. We still don’t know who this mystery investor is.

Jill: What did victor say when you talked to him?

Lily: Uh, nothing. Just that this person wants to remain anonymous for now.

Jill: There is just something about this. It doesn’t feel right.

Devon: Well, we’ve been keeping an eye on things, and there have been no leaks or media speculation, so clearly this person is moving in secret.

Jill: At best, this is annoying, and at worst… lord, I don’t even know what the worst would be.

Devon: Oh, we’re right there with you, jill.

Lily: Yeah, it is disconcerting, to say the least.

Jill: You know, when victor first became a silent partner, I understood why he wanted to keep it a public secret. But at least he revealed himself to me.

Devon: Well, yeah, his actions back then made sense, considering that he was trying to stop the ipo from going through.

Jill: And he wanted to make peace between the two of you.

Lily: Yeah, I mean, his intentions were good, but I don’t like the underhanded way that he went about it.

Jill: This time, he’s made a move to sell without even consulting me. This, oh, this is a whole new game.

Lily: He did say, though, that he’s not disappointed in the company’s performance at all. That it was just the right offer at the right time.

Jill: Oh, what does that even mean? We have no idea what this investor’s intentions are. This is not good. It’s not good.

Victor: Adam has expressed the desire to start over. At newman, you know. Start at the bottom. Work his way up the corporate ladder.

Nate: Wow, that is– that is a remarkable request.

Victor: Indeed. He says he want to earn his stripes the honest way, the hard way.

Nate: And you believe he is sincere?

Victor: What do you think?

Nate: I have serious doubts. I previously told you my skepticism about adam’s behavior. He seemed unwilling to be a team player with nick and sharon. I hate to say it, but I feel adam’s proven me right. He seems destined to revert to form. I mean, historically, he’s never played by the rules. Why believe he could do it this time?

Victor: Well… still living with odors?

Nate: I apologize if I am out of line with my assessment. Adam’s behavior can be a bit frustrating.

Victor: You’re not alone in feeling that way. I’d love nothing more than to be able to believe that adam is capable of changing, you know?

Nate: Even after his recent infractions? Undermining his partners, re get what he wants? I mean, the list goes on.

Victor: Yeah, he certainly has let me down, hasn’t he? But so have my other children, especially nicholas.

Nate: May I ask how?

Victor: He decided to abandon newman enterprises once again. To work alongside sharon.

Nate: I am aware you decided to give kirsten incorporated back to sharon.

Victor: It’s a company not worth keeping.

Nate: I imagine it’s difficult, having both of your sons disappoint you this way.

[ Victor sighs ]

Victor: It is. Although, I have the feeling that eventually, nicholas will return to the fold. I just hope that adam will find an opportunity to vent his anger and frustration and resentment. You know, stop feeling like a newman outsider.

Nate: I understand that, actually, and can relate. I felt like an outsider in my own family when I was working at chancellor-winters.

Victor: Well? And that prompted you to leave?

Nate: Unfortunately, yes.

[ Victor sighing ]

Victor: Can I ask you to do me a favor?

Nate: Of course.

Victor: I want you to help and support adam. And encourage him. Until he figures out his path.

Sally: I did see adam while you were away. We both acknowledged that we were starting over. He claims that he’s ready to move forward without any regret or any thoughts of seeking revenge.

Nick: That sounds far too evolved for adam.

Sally: Well, he sounded sincere. He wants to hit the reset button and start over.

Nick: Hm. Yeah. I’ll, uh, I’ll believe it when I see it.

Sally: Yeah. I said the same thing, but in somewhat gentler terms.

Nick: Well, it doesn’t really concern me if adam means what he says, and frankly, it doesn’t concern you either.

Sally: Do you really feel that way?

Nick: Adam’s a tornado. He sucks up everything in his path and just leaves destruction and I’m done with it.

Sally: Okay. Yeah, I hear you, but I’m not sure if I believe this cavalier attitude.

Nick: Why? I’m always cavalier. Always. And funny and handsome, charming. So many things.

Sally: ‘Kay, well, you’re definitely not wrong, but I just suspect that deep down, you have to be worried about how adam’s actions are gonna affect victoria and your dad.

Nick: Well, dad and victoria can deal with it any way they like. I’m moving on.

Sally: But that’s not who you are, nick. You care way too much about your family and the company. Be honest. Do you regret not staying at newman or… are you just doing all this to prove a point to your dad?

Victoria: Nick seems like his mind is made up. I don’t think there’s any possibility of changing it.

Nikki: But you’re going to try because his return would be good for you.

Victoria: Do you really think that I’m that conniving? Besides, what possible move could I make? I’ve been stripped of my position by dad.

Nikki: Victoria, you still have a powerful and important role to play at the company.

[ Victoria sighing ]

Victoria: Yeah, well, a week ago, I was the powerful and important one.

[ Nikki sighing ]

Nikki: I had no idea that victor was going to return and take charge like this. I wonder if nicholas even knows that victor’s going to be ceo again.

Victoria: He didn’t hear it from me, since he won’t return any of my calls.

Nikki: Well, it hasn’t been released to the press. I don’t know, maybe nicholas has spoken to him.

Victoria: Well, that’s true. Do you think that dad might try to convince him to return to the company?

Nikki: I hope so.

Victoria: Me too.

Nikki: Do you think that would change your father’s mind?

Victoria: No, I don’t think that anything would convince him.

Nikki: Yeah, i agree with you.

Victoria: But I think that we need to remain aligned as a family. I need nicholas as an ally and as my brother, it’s in his best interest to share my concerns.

Nikki: You’re worried about your father taking this on.

Victoria: I just believe that it’s a mistake for him to return to such a high-pressure position, and when nicholas hears what dad is doing, I think that nick will agree with me. With cirkul, your water is deliciously flavored at the turn of a dial, with zero sugar and zero calories. And cirkul has over 40 flavors, so your water can be as unique as you are. Try cirkul. Your water, your way. Now with even more flavors. Available at walmart or drinkcirkul.Com. That grimy film on your teeth?

Nikki: Victoria, it is your father’s choice.

Victoria: He’s being reckless, mom. He’s taking on too much. It could be extremely strenuous for him.

Nikki: I am also very concerned about his health.

Victoria: Well, have you told him how you feel?

Nikki: Well, I told you, I tried to convince him to take me on a trip before going back to newman enterprises, but he was determined to do it immediately.

Victoria: And that doesn’t worry you? That he’s just barreling forward without taking your concerns to heart?

Nikki: I think it’s up to victor to know his own limitations. And if he says he can handle it, we have to trust him.

Victoria: But mom, dad is in a different place than he was before, when he was running newman enterprises. What do I have to do to convince you that my feelings are valid? What will it take to get you on my side, mom?

Lily: I just don’t understand victor’s motive. Like, why go along with this person’s secrecy? Why– why do this to us?

Jill: [ Laughs ] Probably, to piss me off.

Devon: I want to know what this investor expects, ’cause the last thing this needs to lead to is the idea of us going public again.

Jill: Oh, that’s not gonna happen. I will not allow that.

Lily: Yeah, I don’t know. There’s still too many unknowns for me.

Jill: I have no doubt that victor is thoroughly enjoying himself, watching me squirm, wondering who this mystery person is.

Lily: Well, devon and i did discuss that this person could possibly be tucker.

Jill: If victor did that, that would be taking things too far.

Devon: What do you think the best move is for us now?

Jill: Well, obviously, we need answers, immediately. I think it’s time I spoke to victor myself.

Nate: I’m not sure what you’re asking is possible. I don’t think adam would be too receptive to the idea of me looking out for him.

Victor: Point well taken, but I have a feeling that you… can find a way.

Nate: Adam and I have had numerous flare-ups in the past. Most recently, when he tried to blackmail audra, I expressed my condemnation to him directly.

Victor: Adam claims that he knows he’s made some bad moves. And I am willing to believe that he is honestly trying to turn things around.

Nate: He is your son. Of course, you want to give him the benefit of the doubt, but I don’t share that same frame of mind and adam knows it.

Victor: Well, then, of course, there’s always the chance

Nate: Ah. Okay. I get it. Your request is twofold. You want me to be adam’s friend, if he is sincere, and keep a close watch on him to see if maybe he’s not.

Adam: That is an interesting suggestion, jack.

Jack: I’m offering you an opportunity. You say you’re interested in turning your life around?

Adam: Aren’t i always, though?

Jack: I know you have worked very hard with nick and sharon to get their enterprise up and running.

Adam: Yeah, until i blew that up.

Jack: And I know you would like to set things right with your father, assuming you were being honest about this effort to turn your life around, maybe doing me this little favor would be a step in that direction.

Adam: It’s not in my nature to be that benevolent, even when I’m trying to change.

Jack: So, tell me about this new path you’re on. I mean, uh, I haven’t heard about it directly from you.

Adam: Um, well, it’s– it’s simple, really. I’m tired of letting anger and resentment be the driving force in my life, jack.

Jack: That’s a big admission.

Adam: Never letting my feelings go. Not getting out of my own way. I mean, how many opportunities has victor given me? And I have ruined every single one of them.

Jack: Have you said this to victor?

Adam: Mm-hmm, we’ve spoken. I told him, my eyes are wide open.

Jack: Good for you.

Adam: Yeah. Yeah, I guess, you could say that I am reinventing myself, and trying to become the guy that everyone who has ever cared about me has wanted me to be.

Jack: So, what’s the first step?

Adam: Believe it or not, I am starting from the ground floor at newman. I’m gonna work my way up. I’m gonna prove myself.

Jack: And this was your idea?

Adam: Mm-hmm. Maybe, somewhere along the way, I will find myself.

Jack: I am very impressed.

Adam: Thank you, jack.

Jack: And I’m sure it means a lot to your father that you’re putting in this kind of effort. I want you to know, I am rooting for you every step of the way. Excuse me.

Adam: Everything all right?

Jack: I’m not sure. (Vo) it’s another ultimate endless shrimp

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Jack: That was my sister, traci, I need to head home.

Adam: Ooh, well, I– I hope everything’s okay.

Jack: Yeah, I do, too. I’m not sure what that’s about, but I better go. Uh, can we wrap this up?

Adam: [ Clears throat ] Jack, is– is tucker really that much of a threat to you?

Jack: Tucker mccall tried to manipulate my sister and very nearly succeeded. All signs are, he is coming after jabot now. I will not allow anyone to harm a member of my family or my company.

Adam: You know, you are one of the good ones, jack. And I would hate to see someone like that try to take advantage of you. So, how about I give you the information to use as you need with one caveat.

Jack: And what is that?

Adam: With the understanding that if I need a hand or support down the line, I can turn to you. What do you say?

Nikki: This isn’t easy for me, victoria, being caught between you and your father.

Victoria: I know.

Nikki: I understand where you’re coming from, but I’m still conflicted as to how to approach him with this.

Victoria: Mom, just talk to dad, please. Help him to see reason.

Nikki: I don’t agree with you that he is acting irrationally, but I do worry that he’s gonna put too much pressure on himself.

Victoria: It’s what he always does.

Nikki: I’m also unhappy that nicholas has left the company. If he were to return, that would be best for all of us.

Victoria: I agree.

Nikki: But I cannot help you go after your father.

Victoria: Mom, that’s not my intention.

Nikki: I know what your father did has hurt you, but he doesn’t think any less of you. He knows you are as capable as you always have been.

Victoria: Dad just needs to trust that his legacy belongs in my hands now.

Nikki: I cannot side against victor with you, I am sorry.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Then mom, please don’t think of this as taking opposite sides. We’d be doing what is best for dad, and we’d be doing it for the good of the company as well.

Nikki: Honey, I know your intentions are good, but I also know when you feel cornered, you will do anything you can to get what you want.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Well, I wonder where I learned that from.

Nikki: Victoria. I must urge you not to try to undermine your father. That would end badly for the family, and especially, for you.

Nick: Yeah, I think I made the right move. I love my family so much, but having some space right now feels necessary.

Sally: Okay. If that’s the only reason.

Nick: My dad did call me, while I was out of town. Apparently, he’s coming back to the company and taking over as ceo.

Sally: Whoa, that has to be a huge blow for victoria.

Nick: Yeah, she’s got to be spinning right now.

Sally: Have you heard from her?

Nick: She called several times, lot of texts. She was relentless. Um, I’m sure it’s over this change-up.

Sally: She wants your take?

Nick: Maybe. If I know my sister, she could also want me to stay on as her ally. To help her once the whip starts cracking from my dad.

[ Sally laughing ]

Sally: It never ends, does it?

Nick: With my dad?

[ Laughs ] Never. Hi, my name is tony cooper. And if you have both medicare and medicaid, I have some really encouraging news that you’ll definitely want to hear.

Sally: Well, it’s your decision, but I mean, I can see both sides of it. You wanting to step away for your own sake, but also wanting to stabilize your family.

Nick: Still feel like the wild card in all of this is adam. I can’t help but feel like he’s got some self-serving angle, the way he does with everything in life.

Sally: Ooh, yeah, I mean, I want to believe that he’s sincere, but I don’t know. I mean, I’ve been fooled by him before, so…

Nick: You’re not the only one.

Sally: I mean, it could be that he’s trying to convince himself that he really can change.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know. I just don’t buy it. I mean, adam has every reason to hate us all right now.

Sally: He could just be tired, ready for something new. Maybe, he’s just finally had enough of the conflict.

Nick: Yeah, I don’t know about that. My brother thrives on instigating chaos.

Sally: Yeah, he is good at that.

Nick: Yeah, conflict is in his very being. It’s in his dna.

Victor: Anyway, nate, I appreciate your help and your discretion, all right?

Nate: Understood.

Victor: Good.

Nikki: Hello.

Victor: Well, hello.

Victoria: Is everything all right? Is there anything we should know about?

Victor: Nothing of importance, my darling. I have to leave. I have a meeting at society.

Victoria: Do you need me to join you?

Victor: No, you can just hold down the fort, okay? Uh, by the way, I have them prepare a press release in which I talk about all the changes at newman enterprises. I’ll show it to you when I get back, okay?

Victoria: Thank you.

Victor: Among others, I talked about your mother’s new position at newman media. And the fact that adam will return to the company at the bottom rung of the ladder.

Victoria: Well, I appreciate you keeping me in the loop.

Victor: I knew once you calmed down, you and I would be able to work together.

Victoria: I’m guessing that it would be pointless to tell you that giving adam another position at newman is a huge mistake.

Victor: Do I need to remind you that you started at the bottom as well?

Victoria: Don’t compare me to him. I started in the mailroom because i wanted to know the business, so that I could contribute something meaningful. You and I both know that that’s not adam’s true intention. At least, I hope you know that, dad.

Victor: And I hope you know that I meant what I said. That’s how things will be. And do not forget, for one moment… no one’s position in this company is secure.

Nikki: I’m going back to my office. Let me know if you need anything.

Nate: You okay?

Victoria: Yeah, I’m okay. It’s not like I haven’t heard that before. What about you, what’s going on? What were you and my father talking about?

Nate: You may not believe it if I tell you.

Victoria: Try me.

Nate: Victor wants me to become adam’s new best friend.

Jack: You’re asking for an iou?

Adam: Look, the– the day may never come, but I would like to know that I can count on you for a favor, down the line, if I need it.

Jack: This sounds unnervingly like a deal with the devil.

Adam: Okay, well, maybe, my better angels will win out this time.

Jack: I’m willing to risk it.

[ Adam sighing ]

Adam: Check your inbox. Soon. And you’ll have what you need.

Jack: Thank you.

Adam: Mm-hmm.

Jack: Thank you. A mystery!

Nate: Victor wants me to offer adam support in his new role here, under the guise of keeping a close watch on him.

Victoria: Ugh, god. I cannot believe that dad is willing to give adam another chance. Even if he is starting at the bottom, I mean, when is enough enough?

Nate: Yes, I am skeptical too, which I told victor. And I don’t think he would ask me to keep a close eye on him if he wasn’t concerned as well.

Victoria: I can’t see how anyone would believe that adam can turn things around. He’s never been sincere about bettering himself.

Nate: You and I are on the same page.

Victoria: He must have some kind of an agenda.

Nate: I believe victor suspects as much and he’s building a contingency plan. And he wants me to be the one to find out the truth. One way or another.

Victoria: Well, I can see the logic in that. I don’t think it’s a bad plan.

Nick: You know where my phone is?

Sally: Here. Are all of these messages from victoria?

Nick: Ugh. Probably. But she can wait. I don’t want to deal with this right now.

Sally: Nick, you should not ignore your sister. You should call and see what she wants. Maybe, it’s important.

Nick: Hey, vic.

Victoria: [ Sighs ] Finally. I have been trying to get ahold of you.

Nick: What’s going on?

Victoria: Can you meet with me, please? It’s important.

[ Phone ringing ]

Victor: Hello, jill. I’ve been expecting to hear from you.

Jill: You’re damn right, I’m calling you, after what you pulled.

Victor: Oh, what have I done now?

Jill: Oh, stop it. You sold your interest in chancellor-winters without any warning, leaving us to scramble.

Victor: Well, now, jill, I’m so sorry. That you’re distressed now, but that you could have avoided all that had you called me in the first place instead of sending lily to interrogate me.

Jill: Does this mean you’ll tell me what you wouldn’t reveal to lily, who this person is who now owns a stake in my company?

Victor: Sorry, my dear, but I cannot reveal who the investor is.

Jill: So, your loyalty is to them and not to me.

Victor: You just rest assured, you’ll find out soon enough who the new investor is, okay?

Traci: Oh! Good, you’re back.

Jack: Yeah, I’m back. Well, what’s with you? Your message sounded urgent.

Traci: I so– I’m sorry, I’m sorry, I– I– everyone’s fine, everything is fine, I didn’t mean to startle you, but i needed you back here. I didn’t want to spoil the surprise.

Jack: What surprise?

Mamie: Hello, jackie.

[ Siren wails in distance ] Hi, it’s nurse baldwin. I’m calling for an update on drew cain. Great. Thank you. Okay. So, the doctor is here, and he’s scrubbing in. He’s the best, carly. He’ll start operating right away. Thank you. Thank you. Hey, uh…jake. You — you okay? Why don’t you come with me, buddy? I love our new home, papa. I’m so glad you do, sweetheart. I could tell nina knew about it already. No, I told her this morning. I needed her to keep you distracted so I could make everything just perfect. She didn’t know until this morning? No. I thought she helped you decorate. No, it was somebody else. I know it wasn’t anna.

[ Chuckles ] Chase: You think it’s the same perp that burned down anna’s house? I don’t know. They write that on the mirror. They trash the suite. They put ink on her clothes. It doesn’t seem like the same kind of thing. Yeah, but the missing security footage at the metro court implies a sophisticated perp. Here I am. I surrender. Hey. Getting some fresh air? Yeah. The trees are starting to turn. It’s beautiful. Yeah, they are. I’ve always loved being outdoors. Cody does, too. Well, it’s pretty hard to ride horses inside. Sam, what if this doesn’t work? Cody might never be free again. We run into each other in the strangest places. Yep, that’s true.

[ Sighs ] I guess…maybe we both need to be here right now. Remember when you asked me if it was worth it? The life I chose. Yeah. I’m beginning to wonder. Having doubts, huh? When I asked you before, you said you didn’t have any regrets. Well, before I came in here, I was leaving the hospital and I saw curtis. He’s in the wheelchair because of me. I’m struggling with that, too, you know. But I-I don’t think that you can blame yourself. You even said that the bullet — that you think the bullet was meant for me, and now he’s — he’s — an innocent man is in a wheelchair, and drew is upstairs fighting for his life because of me. Hey. Hey. Are you okay? Look, I… the doctor explained to me what the surgery was about, but I still don’t get it. So, can you go over it with me a little bit more? Yes. The piece of drew’s rib that broke is lodged near a main artery. It needs to come out as soon as possible. Or it’ll kill him, right?

[ Elevator bell dings ] Where the hell is dr. Gatlin-holt? Why did carly want me here? Do you know? Well, drew was beaten up in pentonville, and he’s having emergency surgery to save his life. Oh, god. Hey, ava. Yeah? Did you tell carly that I’m the one who put him there?

Keep the faith, sasha. Dante’s not gonna let anything happen to cody. But it’s not entirely up to dante, is it? No, not entirely, but — cody is an escaped mental patient. He’s wanted for kidnapping me and assaulting dr. Montague. Even though montague was drugging me and tried to kill me. And we’re gonna prove all of that. How? We have the evidence of the drug from montague’s own pocket, and we will prove that he was conspiring with someone else. My own mother-in-law. I know. I’m so sorry. But, yes, gladys will pay. The first step is establishing a legal record. And that’s why cody had to turn himself in. Exactly. Where the hell is sasha? I’m here to turn myself in. I said where is she, damn it. ‘Cause I swear, if you hurt her, I — chase, you really think I’d hurt her? Then tell me where she is! All I’m telling you right now is that I’m here to give myself up. You heard what mr. Bell said. Someone want to tell me what’s going on? Yeah, I think you should book the suspect. Oh, I will. We’re gonna do this completely legal, and then we’re gonna go back to answering questions. And you’ll get the same answer. I’m here to turn myself in. Cody bell, you have the right to remain silent. I love that part. I like that part, too. That’s funny. Anything you say can and will be held against you in a court of law. You have the right to an attorney. If you cannot afford an attorney, one will be provided for you. Do you understand these rights as I have read them to you? Sure do. Valentin: Now, wait a minute. Why would you say that you know that anna didn’t help decorate? It’s not her style. It’s beautiful. Did you do it yourself, papa? No. No, my decorator, jen, helped me. She did an amazing job. It’s more comfortable than wyndemere ever was. I’m glad you like it so much. I do. I could tell when my friends came to wyndemere they thought it was creepy. Well, they can come here now. You can bring your friend jake. Jake? Yeah, jake. You said you were with jake last night before you came to the metro court. I was. I showed you all the pictures of us together. Yeah, it looked like you were having a good time. Is he a nice kid? Can I see my new room? Yeah. Yeah. You want me to go with you? No, I want to see it for the first time by myself, if that’s okay. Okay. It’s down the hall, second door on the left. Thank you for letting her stay the night. Yeah, of course. I love having her here. I don’t want her near anna. I don’t — I don’t want her out of my sight. Yeah, I know. I know. Oh, no. Drew was beaten that badly? Carly says he hasn’t regained consciousness since the fight.

[ Exhales slowly ] That’s not good. Well, it’s pentonville, sonny. Prisoners are going to start fights for a myriad of reasons. I asked drew to get me information. And what, he agreed? I never should have asked him. I thought he was gonna be discreet and he’d be safe. Yeah, but you can’t be sure of that. Yes, I can, ’cause I ordered it. I let it be known drew was under my protection in pentonville. Someone defied your order. Hey, come on in. You okay? I need to know what’s happening with drew. Okay. Do you want to have a seat? You know, sometimes these — these things take a little while, jake. So… but I’m gonna make some calls, and I’ll — I’ll find out exactly what’s going on with your uncle, alright?

[ Beeping ] Carly, I am — I am so sorry to hear about drew. Are you? Yeah, of — of course. I don’t know exactly what happened. I can tell you exactly what happened. Drew was set up, beaten almost to death, and now he’s in surgery and he might not make it. Oh, no. But you’re not really surprised, are you, ava? What? Cut the act! I know exactly what you did.

I got him booked. What do you want to do with him? Uh, good. Question him, right? I mean, uh, you want to call a lawyer? Uh, nope. Wouldn’t do any good. That’s a positive outlook to have. Uh, just, uh, let’s go in here. Okay. Oh, hey. Would you like me to sit in? Uh, no, it’s — it’s all right. I got — I got this. Yeah, I have no doubt. Excuse me, um… I’m gladys corbin. I’m sasha gilmore’s guardian, and I got a call saying they have her kidnapper in custody. Where’s my daughter-in-law? I honestly don’t understand why cody is risking so much to protect me. Maybe he thinks you’re worth it. Yeah? Based on what? I mean, we’ve had a few nice conversations. I think he’s a nice guy, but, you know, we were becoming friends, and then I started acting so strange. And then I stabbed him at the metro court pool. I saw him that night in the hospital. I saw you, too. And we both agreed that you had no idea what was going on. Those pills that dr. Montague gave me — they made you delusional. I was so sure that I saw cyrus renault when I stabbed cody. Well, our minds can play terrible tricks on us when someone screws around with them. Cody knows that’s what happened with you. Still, he’s putting everything on the line for me. What kind of person does that? Okay. No, I-I appreciate the update. Thank you. Okay. Uh, drew is still in surgery, alright? I know the surgeon doing the operation. He’s excellent. Your uncle couldn’t be in better hands. Uh, what happened out there when you first came in… what? What? I mean… you’re — you’re worried about your uncle, right? Yeah. I shouldn’t have cried. Yeah, I don’t know about that, jake. I, um… not so long ago, I got some news about someone I really care about, someone I love, and you know what happened? What? I cried. Man, I cried. I don’t think there’s any shame in that, jake. I mean…you really love your uncle, right? Yeah. I just need him to be okay. Yeah. This would not have happened five years ago. What do you mean? No one would have defied my orders back then. Yeah. Something like that’s happening to me, too. Th ings are impacting memore than they used to. Like somebody burning down your house? I still can’t believe that happened. I feel like things are just out of control. A-and I used to feel like I can keep things under control. Right. You know what I mean? Yeah. What are you gonna do? What do we do? Throw in the towel? Never. Didn’t think so. Carly, I don’t know what you’re talking about. You’re a liar. Hey! Whoa, whoa. This isn’t the time or the place. You back off! This does not concern you. I can’t believe I was stupid enough to trust you. T-trust me with what? What did I do? I told you that drew was gonna ask around pentonville to find out who your boyfriend, austin, was visiting when he was there. What’d you do? Did you call him right away? No. Did you meet up with him so you could plan the hit on drew together? No. I had nothing to do with this. I don’t believe you. I don’t believe you because you are the only other person who knew about this, and conveniently, austin isn’t working today. Drew could have been killed! Damn it, ava. He shouldn’t even be in pentonville! Carly, I’m not the one who put him there! What the hell is that supposed to mean?

I love my new room. It’s good, right? I knew you’d like it. How did the decorator know everything I would like? Well, we looked at a lot of photographs, and she asked a lot of questions. It’s like I picked everything out myself. There’s even new riding clothes in my closet already. I wanted your first ride on butterscotch to be perfect from your new house. And if you look just down there, you’ll see the bridle path comes along the back here. You can ride right up to the door. You’ve thought of everything. You said before you don’t think this is anna’s style? Well…it’s not like her house. So what, you don’t think she’s gonna like it? Why? Is anna gonna move in here, too? I don’t know. Maybe. She needs a place to live… since her house burned down. I’ll find out who did this to drew. I’m sure you will. It’s funny how life works. Is it? I didn’t know you were in here. Nor I you. And if you hadn’t been, I don’t — yeah, I mean…

[ Chuckles ] I don’t know. I had the feeling that you would have come to the same conclusion. You’re not ready to turn the page. You kind o f helped me realizethat I’m not, either. Then I guess we keep fighting. We keep fighting. You need to go see carly. You think? You do. She’s so scared for the man she loves. She needs your support. Yeah. I’m gonna — I’ll go check on drew, and hopefully she’s there. If she’s not… I’ll light a candle for him.

[ Chuckling ] Alright. Thank you. You bet. Bye. Bye. How did you find out about what happened to your uncle? I was, um, already here at the hospital, talking to my mom. I saw carly, and I wanted to go ask her about visiting uncle drew. At pentonville? My mom said I could go visit him, but, um, then he got put into solitary before I could. And now… for what it’s worth, you can always talk to me, jake. It just feels like everyone leaves. Everyone leaves? My dad died. Franco died. Cam went away to college. You left. And, um, now… I know it hurts. But I’m still here, jake, and I — I’m not going anywhere. Okay? Okay. Okay. You know, I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of person cody is ever since he came to port charles last year. I know he and dante are good friends. Yeah, but they haven’t really seen or spoken to each other since they were teenagers. Really? Yeah. And it turns out that cody has a questionable past, so I wasn’t really sure if I could trust him or not. But now you do? I do. But who am I to judge, anyway? I have a pretty colorful past myself. So do I. Mrs. Corbin, your daughter-in-law isn’t here. I-I-I know that. Where did you take her? To — to G.H.? Or back to ferncliff? We’ve only apprehended cody bell. But he kidnapped her! If he doesn’t have her, where is she?! We’re trying to figure that out. Okay. Well, alright. Let me see him. I want to see cody right now. I don’t know why you’re blaming ava for this. Because she’s the only one who could have made this happen. Drew’s too smart to be sloppy, and someone targeted him. And now, ava, you’re trying to tell me this is all my fault? What?! No! Yeah, that’s exactly what it is. You said that you’re not the one who put drew in pentonville. And you’re right, I am. It’s my fault. Okay, I get it. But how could you do this? Carly. What the hell does austin have on you? Carly! What?!

What I said before about cody taking a risk… I know that he’s not the only one taking a risk for me. Well, dante isn’t the kind of man who will sit on the sidelines if he knows someone’s in trouble. You’re taking a risk, too.

[ Sighs ] I don’t see it that way. I think we’re all just trying to do the right thing. Is that why you fell in love with dante?

[ Laughs ] Because he does the right thing? It’s — it’s, um — it’s one of the reasons why. I think you two are such a good match. I agree. Thank you.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Now? Cody is being interrogated at the moment.

[ Scoffs ] Oh, by his friend, detective falconeri? That’s none of your concern. You know, no. No. Don’t think I don’t know what’s going on here. You’re protecting a dangerous man like cody bell, when who knows what kind of trouble my poor daughter-in-law is in. We are doing everything that we can to find her. Oh, well, clearly it’s not enough. Sasha is in a very fragile state. We know that. I want to talk to the commissioner right now. The commissioner isn’t in. Then I’ll wait. Cody kidnapped sasha. He put her life in grave danger. He has to pay. Did you just hear that lunatic?

I put sasha’s life in danger?! Okay, y-you just stay calm. It’s a little hard to stay calm with that performance that gladys is putting on out there. That was a pretty good performance. I mean, I-I almost believe that she’s worried about sasha.

[ Chuckles ] The only thing that gladys is worried about right now is the truth coming out. Can I get you a coffee? No.

[ Cellphone rings ] Hello? Sam: [ Distorted ]

Is this gladys corbin? Yes. Hi, this is ms. Vargas from port charles savings and loan. I’m calling about the accounts of sasha gilmore. Hey. Hey. You alright? Yeah. Is uncle drew out of surgery? Not yet, but I will be notified the minute he is. So, we just have to sit around and do nothing? Not necessarily. Listen to me. Ava did it. I was stupid enough to tell her what drew was doing in pentonville, and she must have told austin or his cousin mason, and that’s why drew was attacked, and that’s why he might not make it. No, carly, you’re wrong. I swear to you, carly, I didn’t say anything to anybody. She didn’t, and I know for a fact she didn’T. I don’t know what to believe anymore. You just — look, you got to focus on drew. That’s all that matters. He’s strong. He’s gonna get through this.

[ Sighs ] I don’t know. I don’t know. You think he’s lying to you about pikeman? When you called me last night to say that you had evidence that he wasn’t at elq the night of the fire, valentin was in the shower. He had just received some papers. It kind of looked like a contract, maybe a consultancy project or something. They had the pikeman logo on them. You think he could be working for pikeman again? What else do I not know about you? Hey, you know why I asked you to stay with sam and dante and your brother rocco. Because you were afraid I might not be safe at anna’S. And I was right. I would never forgive myself if you’d been there the night of the fire. I was at camp. I know. And just so you know, I’ve, uh…

[ Cellphone ringing ] …I’ve made special precautions so that we’re safe here. Oh, it’s your uncle marty. I got to take this. Okay. Hello. “Anna devane is not who she seems. Do not trust her.” Charlotte?

Oh, I can’t wait to get on the witness stand and testify against gladys.

[ Chuckles ] She is going to prison for what she did to sasha. Okay, hold the phone, man, ’cause right now you’re the one in custody. You’re the one being charged with kidnapping and assault. Gladys isn’t in custody, and she’s not facing charges right now. Yeah, but she will be as soon as you explain to the judge — I can’t explain anything, unless and until we have proof that gladys and montague were working together to hurt sasha. If we don’t get that… I could be the one in prison. I’m sorry, I don’t understand why you’re calling me. You are ms. Gilmore’s guardian, are you not? Yes. But she’s been kidnapped, and I’m a nervous wreck about it. Oh, I’m sorry to hear that, but this is official business, and you are listed as the responsible party for all of the accounts of ms. Gilmore. Well, as her guardian, I only paid her bills and provided money when she needed or asked for it. A-a-and — and the medical bills. Ms. Corbin, none of that is of our concern. I’m just calling to advise you that we have received a subpoena from the da’s office. A subp– a subpoena for what?

The banking records for all

of ms. Gilmore’s accounts. Aren’t — aren’t those accounts private and confidential? Under normal circumstances, yes. But if the da has cause and a subpoena is issued, we have no choice but to turn over those records. And those records will be turned over today. Thank you and goodbye, ms. Corbin. I hope uncle martin comes to visit us. Well, it’s certainly possible. He’s been here before. He helped me find the place. And maybe someday mom will wake up and come visit us, too. You think about your mom a lot, don’t you? Everyone acts like she’s gone, but…she’s not. No, no, she’s not. I like talking to her. I feel like she can hear me. Well, maybe she can. What kind of things do you guys talk about? Everything. She’d love our house. How would you feel if anna moved in with us? Whatever would make you happy, papa. But I need to know. Need to know? If anna moving in would make you happy. I need to know for the reading. What reading? The cards.

Things are changing. As we speak, things are changing. I know. Things are always changing. That’s the only thing that stays the same. What are you doing? Oh, my god. My god. Are you alright? Of course I’m alright. Why wouldn’t I be? Have a look for yourself. I don’t know if the arsonist was outside waiting for me to leave… …or they assumed I was asleep upstairs. Oh, valentin. Valentin: Whoever got in here — what, was trying to get to me? Well, it’s working. Go back a little. Freeze it. Oh, my god. Valentin, it can’t be. Hi. Oh, hello. Hi, finn. Hi. You want to go ahead? I’ll catch up with you. Yeah. Okay. Hey. Uh…you okay? Yeah, yeah. I heard about drew. How is he? Yeah, I don’t — I haven’t heard anything yet. Elizabeth thought jake might find some comfort from being here. Yeah. Poor kid. He’s been through so much loss, hasn’t he? And he’s so young and… yeah. How about you? What brings you by? I had a phlebotomy treatment and a lot of stuff going on in my head. Is this a good place to clear your head? Always is. Yeah. You’ve been through a lot. I, uh, called you a few times and left a message after the fire. Yes, you did. Thank you. That was very thoughtful. It’s okay. I just — I thought maybe you might give me a call, let me know you were okay. Yeah, I should have. I just — mm. There’s been a lot going on, and I’m sorry. It’s okay. I know. Hey, listen, I… I know you have, uh, people that are there for you, but, um… …don’t ever forget, I’m your friend, too. I don’t know what I’m supposed to do. You don’t have to do anything. If you want, you can light a candle for drew. Do we pray now? We can. And we should think our most positive thoughts about drew getting through this and recovering. Can I get you anything?

[ Sighs ] Ava’s right. Drew’s in that prison because of me. Stop it, carly. It’s true. Drew never committed insider trading. I did. He pled guilty so I wouldn’t be tried. Listen to me, carly. Can I just be alone, sonny? Please, can I… okay. Thank you. Oh. I’m so glad that you showed up when you did. Yeah, me, too. Carly was on quite a rampage. Yeah. You know, that’s the way carly gets when she lashes out. Something happens, and… well, carly has to know that sometimes there aren’t any answers. Ms. Spencer. Yes. The surgeon wanted me to speak to you. Oh, my god.

Uh, drew made it through surgery. He’s gonna be okay. Oh, thank god. The surgery was a success. They expect him to make a full recovery. That’s such a relief. Carly, I’m — I’m so happy for you. I’m sorry you had to go through this. I’m sorry I attacked you. I shouldn’t have done that. It’s okay, really. If I were in your shoes, I-I would have thought the same thing. But the truth is, I-I think that drew is — is a good man. He helped save trina’s life in greenland, and what he did for willow… we all owe him. We do. Can I talk to you for a minute alone? Yeah.

[ Cellphone chimes ] Drew’s okay. He’s gonna make a full recovery.

[ Chuckles ] The surgery was a success. Oh, thank goodness. Oh, some good news. You should get in there. Yeah. Um…remember what I said. Thank you, finn. Okay. See you. Yeah. Mom, this is the best news. I wanted to, um, thank you for, um… for what? For being here. Thank you. You’re welcome. Well, carly really went after you. Yeah, well, that was nothing compared to what she’ll do to you if she ever finds out you put drew in prison. Where’d you get those? A girl at camp gave them to me and showed me how to use them. Victor: To guide you, I’m giving you these very special tarot cards. They are powerful tools, charlotte. You’ll find them helpful. How’s it going in here? Any progress with this guy? Uh, y-yeah. I was — you know, shouldn’t be too much longer. Right.

[ Door closes ]

[ Knock on door ] Almost ready. I thought you were gonna text.

[ Knock on door ]

Transcript provided by Suzanne



Oh, so good to see a familiar face. Hey, Bonnie. Would you care to join me? I mean, I’ve just been sitting here by myself seething. And since misery loves company, I’m assuming you’re miserable too. Why, why would I be? Why would you be? Because I know you hate Vivian Alamein with a vengeance, too, and since she is claiming to be the once and final Mrs.

Victor Kiriakis. Oh, that. Right, that. And since she and Victor were never legally divorced, she now claims to be the sole heir to his estate. And what’s worse? She threw us all out of the house. Now Justin and I, we’re slumming in in an itsy bitsy, teeny weeny little room at the Salem Inn. Excuse me, but weren’t you locked in Statesville for years, Bonnie?

Which is exactly why it’s so, uh, God, what’s the word everybody’s using? Triggering! Triggering! Not to speak ill of the dead. Damn Victor for leaving us in this mess. Damn him for destroying his will. In fact, damn him for dying.

Oh my god. Why? I, I, I, I can’t believe that that’s the child that she’s talking about. The baby boy. Victor’s son. It’s… Alex. Yeah. Oh.

Geez, who died? Oh, I’m sorry. I, um, Besides Uncle Vic, I didn’t mean to say that. You know I love Uncle Vic, too. I didn’t mean to say that. I’m sorry. You know, it’s okay. It’s just that, um, We’ve been through a heroin series of, of, uh, revelations. And, and now… Um, No. What?

Why is nobody answering me? Why aren’t you looking at me? What the hell’s going on?

Okay, don’t worry about it, alright? All is forgiven now that I’ve met my sweet granddaughter. But your mother, that is a whole different story. She’s pretty ticked off of you. Yeah, I figured. Where’s mom anyway? Don’t tell me she’s trying to track me down. Uh, she’s not. She went to Titan to see Vivian. What? I don’t understand.

Why would she go see Vivian? Because Vivian offered me a job there. Which, of course, Mom was not too thrilled about. In fact, she’s on the warpath. Shot out of here like a rocket to confront her. Well, we need to get her back here. I don’t think that’d be a good idea. Get between your mother and Vivian. That fur is gonna fly before the dusk.

So, that may be true, but I’d hate to see the fur that’s going to fly when mom finds out she missed my wedding. That’s right. Sarah and I are getting married. Right now.

Xander, wait. I’m sorry, I can’t. I can’t do this. I can’t marry you. What? Why? Because of Sarah. Oh, Chloe, darling, come on. I’ve told you a million times. I’m completely over Sarah. That’s not what I meant. I meant… Sarah lied to you. Rex isn’t the father of her baby. You are.

I’m sorry, I must have missed her because it’s so much. No, no, you didn’t miss hear me. Sarah lied. Her little girl is your daughter.

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

Okay, uh, wait, um, you two are telling me that you want to get married right here right now. Um, yeah, if it’s okay with you. Well, yeah, I mean, it’s okay with me, but can you give me a second to take all this in? I mean, a while ago, I didn’t know this little one was born, and now you two are talking about tying the knot.

Well, actually, she’s the reason we want to tie the knot. Because ever since Victoria Margaret made her grand entrance into this world, we want everyone to know who her father is.

I love you talking about? Victoria can’t be mine. Sarah told me. The timing, it made it impossible. Sanders, she lied. How do you know? I just overheard Rex and Phillip talking about it. In the square, Rex was confiding in Philip and they were talking and said that Victoria is your daughter.

Believe me, I hate that Vivian thinks she has a legitimate claim to Victor’s estate. You think you hate it? Imagine how Maggie feels, being kicked out of her own house by that evil witch. I know, it’s, it’s all a farce and I, I just wish you had some recourse. Well, I don’t know anything about a recourse.

Except there is one last shred of hope to hold on to. What’s that? Brady and Alex brought back Victor’s briefcase from Greece. The ISA found it in the plane wreckage. Hopefully there’s something in it that can turn this whole thing around. So, this, uh, this briefcase hasn’t been opened yet? No, they thought Maggie should do the honors.

I’m just hoping whatever’s in there, it’s good news.

You opened Uncle Victor’s briefcase? Did you figure out why he went to Greece? Is that the letter, the one Constantine was talking about? Yes, it is. It is. Good, good. Well, there’s gotta be some answers in there, right? Did you figure out why Uncle Vic destroyed his will? Um, why don’t I let the two of you talk alone?

Why? It’s about Uncle Vic. Yes, but it concerns you too. I’m sorry.

What’s going on? Why is Auntie Maggie sorry? And what’s in the letter? I just… I don’t understand.

Why would Sarah tell me that Rex is the baby’s father? Why would she lie to me? Get out. I know the answer is because she hates me. She hates me for what I did to Susan. I think it’s a lot more complicated than that. No, it’s actually very simple, Chloe.

She thinks I’m a bad person. A lowlife, not worthy to be the father of our child. Oh my gosh, you would rather her daughter, our daughter, grow up believing a lie than know the truth that I’m her father. Her precious little girl is mine.

Hey sweetheart. Oh my god. Look at that little smile. You do know your grandma and grandpa are going to spoil you, right? I have a feeling her parents are going to do the same. Along with their uncle. I just wish your grandma Kate would get here so she could meet you. Actually, here she is now. Well, look who decided to show up.


Mom, this is Victoria Margaret. Oh, Victoria Margaret. I know you probably wish her name was Victoria Catherine, but look, with everything that Maggie’s been through, I hope you understand. Yes, yes, yes. No explanations needed. Victoria is such a beautiful, oh, beautiful, beautiful baby. I just wish we had been introduced maybe two days earlier.

Oh, Kate, I’m… I’m so sorry. We definitely should have called. Yeah, after the birth, things got a little crazy, but hey, at least you’re here now for the wedding. The wedding? Yeah. We are getting married right here, right now. Oh. At least you’re getting your priorities in order. Doesn’t seem very festive, though.

But we have everything we need. Who’s performing the ceremony? That would be me. Ow.

Oh, Bonnie. Hey. I was just on my way to see you. Oh, Maggie, I was gonna come see you too. I just needed a little liquid energy first. Oh, God, those beds at the Salem Inn I was tossing and turning all night. Justin, too. Oh, I’m sorry. I shouldn’t be complaining. How are you? I hope you were able to get some sleep at Doug and Julie’s.

Um, not really. Well, of course not. How could you get any, any sleep? Not only have you just lost your husband, but you’ve been kicked out of your own house by that horrible Vivian Allemagne, who’s also threatened to leave you penniless. And, oh my god, the briefcase! Oh, here I am, just blathering on and on.

I’m so sorry. Tell me, please, please tell me there was something in there that’s gonna kick that evil wench to the curb. Well, actually, there was something in the briefcase. It turns out Victor made it a new will. A new will? Yes, he was in the process of drawing it up when he discovered that he and Vivian were never legally divorced.

So, he, uh, specifically left me 50 percent of his estate. Oh, Maggie! Oh my god, I’m so relieved! That’s wonderful news! So, I guess the rest of the family, we just split the other half, right? Uh, not exactly. Well, I mean, Justin was his favorite nephew, so I mean, he must have left us something, right? I’m sorry, Bonnie, but no.

Victor left the entire other half to his son. His son? Oh my god, which one?

So Vivian gets nothing, and… Maggie gets half of everything. Yeah, that’s what, uh, the new, new will dictates. Good, good. That’s great news, Dad. I mean, Maggie’s got to be relieved, and you too. Judging by the look on your face, there’s a catch, isn’t there? Is this about the other half of Uncle Vic’s estate? Yes, it is.

Oh, God. What the hell did Uncle Vic do? He cut us out, didn’t he? He left the other half to Bo. Oh, no, please, don’t, don’t, don’t tell me, Philip. No, Alex. No, he, uh,

He left the other half of his estate to his other son.

A son that none of us knew

about. Another son that none of us knew about? Are you kidding me? I wish I were. It’s all explained in this letter. So Uncle Victor’s leaving half of his estate to some secret son, Dad? This is insane. After everything you’ve done for him? After everything you’ve done for this family? There’s gotta be some way to fight this.

I mean, come on,

we’re not gonna let some Uncle Vic did. It’s wrong, and at least Auntie Maggie’s taken care of, and Vivian’s… Alex! Stop! Okay. It’s you. What’s me? This letter. Angelica wrote it. Her mother? She wrote some letter to Uncle Vic? Yes. You can read it. I’m sorry, Alex. And I don’t know how else I, I don’t know how else I can tell you this, so I’m just gonna say it.

I’m not your father. Victor

is. Hey, what are you telling me? Alex is not Justin’s son, he’s Victor’s, according to Angelica, yes. No. I can’t believe Well, it was spelled out pretty clearly in her letter.

This is crazy. Believe me, I know. Oh, poor Justin. How is he even dealing with this? Oh God, Maggie, I can’t. I can’t, I can’t believe that Justin is not Alex’s father. I think… I’m…

Victoria’s father, this is,

I don’t know what to say, I don’t think the words exist. Oh my god, if you hadn’t overheard Phillip and Rex talking, I might never have known.

Um, you, you might not have known anyway. I’m, I’m not proud of this, but, At first, I was thinking of keeping that secret. Not only for my own sake, but I overheard Philip and Rex saying that that’s what Sarah wanted. Obviously, it’s what she wanted, and I thought I’d be respecting her wishes if I kept my mouth shut, but…

I also realized that my loyalty isn’t to Sarah, it’s, it’s to you, and… You deserve to know the truth.

The Victoria is my daughter. Yeah, and there’s more.

What? Uh, apparently Sarah isn’t really in love with Rex. She’s only with him to cement her story that he’s the baby’s father. She wanted to do whatever she could to make sure that you never knew that Victoria was yours. And that’s the only reason she’s marrying Rex. Oh my god, they’re… They’re getting married right now at the pub?

Yeah, um, So does that mean that you want to go over there?

So you’re going to perform the ceremony? Rex said he deemed it inefficient, so I went online and got ordained. Great, so we’re all set then? Hey, you never thought you’d have two brothers who are ministers. Haha, lucky me. Okay, enough with the jokes. Let’s get this show on the road. We’re here. Can’t wait.

We are gathered here today to join this man and this woman in marriage. And, seeing as how this is my first go at this, I wanted to do it right. So, I’d like to begin with a recitation of one of my favorite epic poems. Low praise of the prowess of people kings. I’m just teasing you, bro. No, really, I just wanted to keep it sweet and simple today.

So here goes. Marriage is an honorable commitment and definitely a joyous one, but it can often involve making sacrifices for the one we love the most. But it is through these sacrifices that an even greater joy can be found. And with that said, Do you, Rex Brady, take Sarah Horton to be your lawfully wedded wife, to live together in matrimony, to love her, comfort her, honor and keep her?

In sickness and in health, in sorrow and in joy, to have and to hold, from this day forward, as long as you both shall live. I do. Do you, Sarah Horton, take Rex Brady to be your lawfully wedded husband? To live together in matrimony? To love him, comfort him, honor and keep him? In sickness and in health? In sorrow and in joy, to have and to hold, from this day forward, as long as you both shall live.

Do you think I should go over there and cause a scene? I think that you need to go tell Sarah that you know everything. Before she… Before she what? What, marries her ex? Chloe, we’re, we’re about to get married. We’re heading to New York to meet up with your parents and Parker, we have plane tickets. Xander.

What? Come on, you’re not thinking straight. You know this changes everything. No, no, no, nothing has changed, but we’re still the same people we were this morning. The ones who make each other laugh and play darts and have made a really happy home here. We’re the same people who are planning our life together.

Come on, Xander, stop. You know we’re… You know this changes everything. Now that we know the truth… about the baby… and Sarah… Can you honestly say this doesn’t change everything? I

do really care about you, Chloe. I know. I know you do. I love you.

But I just feel that Don’t, don’t, don’t, don’t say it.

Just go.

I have to go. I have to find Justin. Bonnie, please, would you just sit with me for a bit? I mean, give Alex and Justin time to talk. He’s my husband, Maggie. He needs me. And I need to go to him now. Maggie, imagine if Victor found out that one of his children wasn’t his. What would you do? They’re at the Hortons.


He’s my, uh, he and my mother. You never knew? No. No. I can only assume that they had some kind of dalliance and kept it a secret.

If that’s true, um, why would it be there? Why would he and my mother have kept that a secret from me my whole life? Well, according to this letter, your mother thought that, um, I would be devastated to learn that, uh, she had lied to me and allowed me to think that, uh, Beautiful baby boy is mine. And that, uh, that I would feel incredibly betrayed by my uncle.

You know, flesh and blood. So, that’s why she and Victor kept it from me. And you.

Sarah, I think that’s your cue. Yeah, I, I’m so sorry, where were we? Oh, just me asking if you’d take Rex to be your lawfully wedded husband. Right, right. Yes, of course, yes. Then, if we could have the rings. Here you go. Thanks, Pop. With this ring, I thee wed.

With this ring, I thee wed.

By the power vested in me, by the almighty internet, I now pronounce you husband and wife.

And that’s your cue, bro. Good work.

My God.

When Brady and I went to Greece to try and figure out what Uncle Vic was up to, um, I never could have imagined that it would be this. Look, look, I don’t care what this paper says. And Victor may be your biological father, but Alex, look at me. I am your dad, in every way that counts, and nothing can change that.

You don’t feel that way?

Oh, I’m feeling, uh,

I can’t really put into words, um, None of it seems real.

Everything that I thought of, Who I am, Who my father is. Who my brothers are is suddenly told to me that it was all a lie.

I was really proud to know that you were my father. You’re a good person.

You’re honorable. And you are honest, and you are kind, and I always thought that because I was part of you, that maybe deep down somewhere inside of me, that that was inside of me too, and I, uh…

I just think that it always, it always gave me some kind of hope for myself. And now, uh, Alex, you are a good person. And I have, I know I’ve been tough on you from time to time, but I have always, I’ve always believed in you, son. Because I know how smart you are, and most importantly, What a good heart you have.

I feel like any minute I’m gonna wake up from this very strange nightmare.

I hope the hell I do very soon.

I think I need to be alone right now.


I understand.

Well, if I do say so myself… It’s very well hung. Said the chorus girl to the archbishop. You know there’s a reason I like you, you’ve got a filthy mind and a terrible aim. You know, let’s hope that that board stays up there because I would hate for it to fall the moment I hit my first bullseye. If a massive earthquake were to hit Salem…

And that wall started to crumble? Our dart bullet would stop it from falling. You think? I know. That’s a bearing wall. It might save the whole building. Thanks to my expert installation. Unbelievable.

Ha ha, believe it. I’m ready for that shoulder massage. Uh huh.

Ooh. Oh yeah, that feels good. Maybe I don’t mind losing so much

after a while.

Mom, hi. It’s me. No, I’m not at the airport. I’m actually, I’m actually not. Yeah, something’s wrong. Um, Xander and I, we, uh,

well, the wedding is off.


Sorry to crash the party, Mrs. Brady. Xander, what are you doing here? I came for my baby. Your baby. This is not your baby. Are you sure about that? I want to ask them. What the hell are you talking about? Stop. Chloe was there, Philip. In the square. She overheard you and Rex talking about it. About how Sarah’s baby is actually mine.

But Chloe had the decency to tell me. Before we both got on a plane to go to New York. To get married. Chloe must have misunderstood. Say something, Sarah.

She didn’t misunderstand. She’s right. Victoria is Sanders. She’s yours.

You and I need to

talk. Alone.

Vivian, um, it’s Maggie. I need to see you as soon as possible. You and I have something very important to discuss.

Honey, I just, I just talked to Maggie. Oh, baby, I’m so sorry. Come here, baby. Come here. Oh, honey.

How can this be happening?

How can you be my father?

I thought you two, uh… Could use these, you know. Say that again.

So, that beautiful little girl, isn’t our granddaughter?

No. And I’m sorry. That’s why I was so slow to… To tell you about her. Um, so I guess that means that you and Sarah weren’t in a real relationship. She wasn’t.

I was.

Well, I assume you left my daughter with her fake father, huh? How could you do this, Sarah? How could you keep her from me?

No, it’s okay, Mom. You don’t have to come here. No, I promise. No, I will be fine, okay? I, um… I’ll just, I’ll talk to you later, okay? Okay, I love you too.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Sheila: Don’t deny it because I heard everything.

Deacon: What exactly is it that you think you heard?

Sheila: You have a– a past history with the judge that presided over my case and you called in a favor. You’re the one that made sure I was set free.

Finn: Well, that’s exactly the outcome we were looking for. Yes. No, it’s great news. So, you get home and have some rest and, um, uh, we’ll follow up soon. Okay. Bye bye. Wait. What? How did you get past security?

Liam: Well, I– I used to live here and so did my daughter, so I used my key.

Finn: Why are you here?

Liam: Yeah. Uh, kelly’s been missing one of her favorite stuffies. I found it. Steffy said that you were gonna ship over a bunch of stuff, so she told me to bring it by.

Finn: You’ve been talking to my wife?

Liam: Yeah.

Finn: All right. Why don’t you just leave it on the table? And don’t communicate with steffy.

Brooke: Mm. Ah, I have missed you. You’ve been working a lot lately.

Ridge: I know, I’m– I’m sorry, I’ve got…

Brooke: Is this because of the fashion challenge against your father?

Ridge: Well, I gotta take it seriously, right? But I hate it. I– I hate being at odds with my dad.

Donna: I asked sophia to make us some tea. You want anything? Maybe some food? I haven’t seen you eat much lately.

Eric: Yeah. I haven’t been very hungry actually, but thanks. Look, the only thing I want to do is the thing I can’t, which is to realize this material and get it down on paper. I can’t do it. It’s just useless.

Donna: Okay. Um, well, what– what about the pills?

Eric: They don’t work, donna. They don’t work. I’m sorry– I’m sorry. I just– I appreciate so much what you do for me and– and– and all the help that rj gives me, but he can’t do this alone. Not without my guidance.

Donna: Look, sweetheart. Maybe this is just– it’s too much. You know, you’re working so hard. You don’t have to prove anything.

Eric: Yes, I do. This may be my last chance to put a full collection out there in the world. I’m not gonna walk away. I’m not gonna walk away. I can’t!

Rj: Hey, hey. What’s– what’s going on?

Ridge: Hey.

Carter: You busy? We need to make some decisions about the budget for next quarter. And as you know, couture is our biggest expenditure. So, we need to make some difficult choices about reallocations in order to accommodate eric’s collection.

Ridge: Great. It’s affecting the whole company. Why’s my dad doing this?

Donna: Eric was trying to design and he’s having horrible tremors in his hands.

Rj: Tremors?

Eric: Yes. Yeah, they’re getting worse. Um, they’re getting worse.

Donna: Maybe this– this fashion showdown isn’t worth it. We can both see the toll it’s taking on you.

Rj: Hey, granddad. Look at me. Listen, I– I will help you with your vision, but you realize you have absolutely nothing to prove. You– you are on top. You’ve been on top for years. She’s absolutely right. There is no reason why you should be sacrificing your health to make this collection.

Liam: Finn, steffy is the mother of my child. I’m gonna be communicating with her. There’s nothing you can do about that. Matter of fact, I was thinking about flying out there soon to see kelly. So, maybe…

Finn: Liam, I’m not gonna let you undermine my marriage.

Liam: Undermine your– I miss my daughter, don’t you miss your son?

Finn: Oh, so now you miss your daughter. That’s– that’s convenient. Keep my son out of this and stay the hell away from my wife.

Liam: Okay. Can you stay the hell away from sheila?

Sheila: I just– I can’t believe that you would go to bat for me with the judge to ensure my freedom.

Deacon: Sheila, we cannot have this conversation here.

Sheila: Yeah, of course. Right.

Deacon: Okay. Let’s go up to the apartment.

Sheila: Why? Deacon, are you– are you inviting me back to your place?

Deacon: I guess I am.

Sheila: You have no idea how much this means to me. You literally gave me back my life, [Indistinct]. Thank you, deacon. Really. Thank you.

Deacon: Come on. Liberty mutual customized my car insurance

Ridge: What are we talking about exactly?

Carter: Cuts, ridge. Deep cuts.

Brooke: Could you be more specific?

Carter: I worked on a new budget to accommodate for time, money, and resources to realize eric’s collection and you can see right there that he is not doing things on the cheap.

Ridge: This it? This is what we’re talking about?

Carter: Yeah.

Ridge: Has he seen this?

Carter: Not yet.

Ridge: This makes no sense. Not to the company, not to him. What’s my dad doing?

Eric: I just–

Donna: Eric. Eric.

Eric: All right.

Donna: Look, I can see the toll this is taking on you. Designing this collection shouldn’t run you into the ground.

Rj: She’s absolutely right. I mean, what good is making a final collection if your health is gonna suffer more in the process?

Donna: Put down the pencil. Let’s call your doctor.

Eric: No, no, donna no. Look, rj and I are doing fine. We’re– we’re doing great with this. You’ve really sparked to my teaching. Doing it really well. This is just a– it’s just a bump in the road, that’s all it is. I’ll get over this. I’ll– I’ll– I’ll be fine.

Donna: Eric, please just call–

Eric: No, donna, no. I’m not gonna– I’m gonna run with this. I’m gonna do this and rj is gonna help me. That’s what we’re gonna do. Here, take this.

Donna: Are you okay?

Eric: Yeah. The beginnings of a headache. I’m gonna, uh, I’m just gonna go upstairs for a while, lay down, okay?

Donna: Okay.

Rj: Okay.

Eric: Listen, when I come downstairs, I don’t want to hear any more about us not being able to complete this collection, all right? Nothing else. Nothing more. And I certainly don’t want you to tell anybody– anybody else about my condition, and certainly not your father. Certainly not him.

Finn: Steffy and I are a family. I’m the one that she’s gonna be coming home to, all right? This is my life, not yours. You better get that.

Liam: I got it. Um, but the only reason steffy’s in europe right now is because you can’t protect her from your birth mother.

Finn: Just– just stop with all this, okay? You– you– you think now that you’ve dumped hope, you can just what? Waltz in here and take my wife? Liam, steffy knows all the pain and the heartache that you have caused her and I’m gonna make sure that you never hurt her again.

Liam: I’m confused. How am I a threat to steffy? Like she didn’t dump me, finn, she dumped you and it’s because of this inexplicable connection you have to sheila.

Deacon: Stop looking at me like that. It wasn’t that big a deal.

Sheila: Oh, wait, are you kidding me? I’ve never had anyone stand up for me like that.

Deacon: That’s not right. Sheila, everyone deserves to have at least one person in their life who stands up for them.

Sheila: Yeah, but when I– I heard what you said to judge scott. I– I honestly was floored. I– I’ve never had anyone… there’s honestly been no one who has ever said anything so kind about me. You fought for my freedom. You fought for me, deacon. Why? Why was it so important that– that– that judge makes sure I stay a free woman?

Donna: I just, um, checked on him. He– he’s okay.

Rj: He’s okay?

Donna: Yeah.

Rj: Donna, listen, I’m– I’m seriously worried about him. His condition’s obviously getting worse. I mean–

Donna: I know I– he’s just– he’s so frustrated.

Rj: Listen. When it started out, it was really positive. He was– he was really confident in his ability. So much so that he challenged dad to this fashion showdown and it was exciting and it was fun. But now, it is not like that anymore. We need to face that. He is stressed, he’s burnt out, he’s tired.

Donna: I agree– I agree, okay? I agree.

Rj: I’m worried about keeping this secret from my dad. I know that he would want to know what’s going on with him. Donna, I think it’s time.

Donna: Time for what?

Rj: It’s time that my dad knew what’s actually going on with granddad.

Liam: I’m not the problem, finn. You want me to go away? You want me to become a non-issue in your marriage? There’s an answer for that. You just stop blaming me and start focusing on the real problem, which is sheila.

Deacon: Now, I know that I’m always saying that you’re the crazy one and I’m pretty sure that’s true. But I am too because I am crazy about you. And so, if you want to know the reason why I didn’t want to see you rotting in a prison cell, it’s simple. I just– I couldn’t imagine my life without you in it.

Sheila: Haven’t we just agreed to not see each other anymore?

Deacon: Yeah, but that doesn’t mean that I don’t want to see you happy.

Sheila: You really mean that? I– when I– when I was released, I thought it was a miracle. I thought I’d been given a second chance at life and I had– I had no idea it was because of you. I– I– part of me, it’s– it’s– it’s like part of me wants to believe it’s too good to be true, and then the other part of me says it makes perfect sense because you’re the– you’re the deacon sharpe that I know. That’s– that’s just you. You are an incredibly caring, sensitive, passionate man that has always been my champion. Febreze!

Ridge: Well, we can’t do this. We can’t cut funding to hope for the future. The line’s been doing great.

Brooke: I agree. That would be absolutely ridiculous.

Carter: Okay. Then maybe we could, um, hold off on the bedroom line this fiscal year.

Ridge: A hold off on the bedroom line. The one line that makes money every year, just to humor my dad. Good idea.

Carter: I’m trying to figure this out, man. There’s– there is one more solution.

Brooke: What?

Carter: Talk to your son. He’s working with eric. Maybe he can give us some insight into why eric is so adamant about making this collection. This very costly collection. He can give us some idea on how to talk him out of it.

Brooke: Maybe he can convince eric to collaborate with you on one single couture line.

Ridge: Sure, I’ll talk to rj. Give it a shot. The stakes are too high. I don’t know what we’re doing. I don’t know what my dad is doing.

Rj: I know that granddad wouldn’t be happy if I told my dad, but we are in the same boat here, okay? We are both worried about him and obviously, this collection is having a negative effect on his health. A very long-term negative effect and I’m worried that if something happened to him, I would not be able to forgive myself and neither would you. And honestly, I don’t think my dad would be able to forgive me for never telling him. It’s his son, donna. I think he needs to know the truth.

Finn: Yeah. I– I don’t need you to tell me how to protect my family.

Liam: All right, well, if not me, then maybe somebody else should because dude, you’re really bad at it. And by the way, stop saying your family, this affects my family too. My daughter could get caught in the crossfire here. Now, that it’s just the two of us, would you mind telling me what the hell this is? Seriously, well, like what– what– what is this weird connection you have to sheila? Because to my eye, here’s a woman who’s caused your family nothing but pain and suffering. So, why do you want anything to do with her? Can you just tell me that?

Finn: Liam, don’t worry about my feelings for sheila, okay?

Liam: Okay. I won’t worry about your feelings, but you should because those feelings are what are telling me and everyone else that you’re not taking protecting your wife and kids seriously.

Sheila: No one’s ever cared about me the way that you do. I’m– I’m really not sure anyone has ever cared about me at all.

Deacon: No one should feel that way.

Sheila: Yeah, but when you see me, you– you don’t look away. In your eyes, I’m worth something. That I might even be deserving of tenderness and a touch. I– I never felt that from anyone my entire life. I– I’ve never had anyone on my side. Not at all.

Deacon: Sheila, we understand each other. We’ve both been knocked down, felt like the whole damn world’s against us. We don’t have to do it alone anymore.

Recap written by Terry

Tucker paid Phyllis to hack into the accounts of both Jabot and Billy to make it appear as if Billy is stealing money. Phyllis had only agreed beforehand to hack into Billy’s account – she had not agreed to hack into Jabot’s, but Tucker pressured her to do it. Tucker said she should have seen that coming. She hacked the accounts in exchange for Tucker paying off Phyllis’ debt to the life insurance company, relating back to Jeremy Stark’s life insurance policy money and Jeremy Stark’s taking half of Phyllis’ life savings, all in the scheme to frame Diane for Phyllis’ murder. Phyllis wanted to know what Tucker had against Billy. Tucker replied he had nothing against Billy, but Billy is in a position to help Tucker achieve his final objective – which he would not tell Phyllis.

Billy and Jack argued about Billy’s place in Jabot as co-CEO. While Jack said he wanted to work side but side with his brother, Billy maintained Jack would never see him as a true partner and cautioned Jack not to throw overboard Jack’s one true ally. Billy told Jack that Adam came to him to say he had dirt on Tucker, which Adam said he would share for a price. Jack said Billy owed it to Jabot to inform Jack what Tucker is plotting. Billy agreed. Billy added that it’s in his own interest to leverage that information in order to keep his job, since Billy thought Jack was just about to fire Billy because of trust issues. Jack said he was not going to fire Billy, but had said earlier that working together was not working out. Billy said it would be a better idea if Jack spoke directly with Adam, since Billy and Adam don’t get along. Jack then called Adam to schedule a meeting.

Adam saw Sally working on her business plan and offered to look it over when it’s complete. They discussed Adam’s efforts to change in order to establish positive relationships with his siblings and Victor. Adam bemoaned the fact that everyone’s doubting him and laughing at him while he is trying to live a more authentic life. Sally looked directly at him and stated that she was not laughing. He apologized for putting Sally in an awkward position when he walked Sally to her suite the night before and kissed her. He said for a brief moment he thought she enjoyed it too and that he could not stop thinking about the kiss. Adam told Sally the kiss reminded him of how good they were together. Adam said it’s his hope that Sally comes to him one day and says she loves Nick but she is in love with Adam. He told her he was glad they were now in a place where they can talk again.

Sally appeared exasperated when she found a bouquet of flowers in her suite and thought they were from Adam. The flowers were from Nick, with a card that read he missed her and would be home soon. Hurry, Nick, she said to herself.

Days of Our Lives Update

Update written by Joseph

Kate walks through the town square and comes across Bonnie, who says it’s good to see a familiar face as she’s just been sitting there seething. Bonnie invites Kate to join her and assumes that Kate is also miserable because of Vivian. Bonnie talks about Vivian claiming to be the sole heir to Victor’s estate and says Vivian threw them all out of the mansion, so her and Justin are slumming it in a room at the Salem Inn. Kate brings up Bonnie being locked up for years in prison. Bonnie remarks that is why it’s so triggering. Bonnie blames Victor for destroying his will, causing this mess, and dying.

At the Horton house, Justin and Maggie talk about how they can’t believe the child Victor was talking about is Alex. Alex then walks in and questions who died, then apologizes since Victor did. Maggie informs him that they have just been through a harrowing series of realizations. Alex questions what the hell is going on.

At the Brady Pub, Roman tells Rex not to worry about it and that all is forgiven now that he’s met his beautiful granddaughter. Roman adds that Kate is a whole different story as she’s pretty ticked off at him. Rex says he figured and asks where she is. Philip notes that Kate went to go see Vivian at Titan. Rex and Sarah question why. Philip explains that Vivian offered him a job there and Kate wasn’t thrilled, so she’s on the warpath to confront her. Rex says they need to get Kate back here. Roman doesn’t think it’d be a good idea to get in between Kate and Vivian. Rex then reveals he wouldn’t want Kate to miss his wedding as he announces that he and Sarah are getting married right now.

Chloe starts to cry and stops Xander, saying she’s sorry but she can’t marry him. Xander asks why. Chloe says it’s because of Sarah. Xander argues that they talked about this plenty of times and he’s totally over Sarah. Chloe then reveals to Xander that Sarah lied to him as Rex isn’t the father of her baby, Xander is. Xander asks if he misheard. Chloe repeats that Sarah lied and that her little girl is Xander’s daughter.

Roman questions Rex and Sarah wanting to get married right here and right now. Sarah asks if it’s okay with him. Roman says it is but asks for a second to take all this in. Rex explains that baby Victoria is the reason as they want everyone to know who her father is..

Xander asks what Chloe is talking about and argues that Victoria can’t be his because Sarah told him the timing is impossible. Chloe repeats that Sarah lied. Xander asks how she knows. Chloe reveals that she just overheard Rex confiding in Philip in the town square that Victoria is Xander’s daughter.

Kate tells Bonnie that she hates that Vivian thinks she has a legitimate claim to Victor’s estate. Bonnie tells her to imagine how Maggie feels to be kicked out of her own house by Vivian. Kate wishes she had recourse. Bonnie notes that there is one shred of hope to hold onto as Brady and Alex brought Victor’s briefcase back from Greece, so hopefully something in it can turn things around. Bonnie hopes whatever is in it is good news.

Alex questions opening Victor’s briefcase and asks if they figured out why he went to Greece and if they found the letter that Constantine was talking about. Justin confirms it is so Alex asks if they found answers as to why Victor destroyed his will. Maggie offers to let them talk alone which Alex questions. Maggie tells Alex that it’s about Victor, but it concerns him too. Maggie apologizes and then exits the room. Alex asks Justin what is going on, why Maggie is sorry, and what’s in the letter.

Xander tells Chloe that he doesn’t understand why Sarah would tell him that Rex is the baby’s father and lie to him. Xander guesses it’s because she hates him for what he did to Susan. Chloe thinks it’s more complicated. Xander argues that Sarah thinks he’s a bad person and a low life, not worthy to be the father of their child. Xander realizes that Sarah would rather their daughter grow up believing a lie instead of knowing the truth. Xander declares that the precious little girl is his.

Roman watches over baby Victoria and wishes Kate would get there to meet her. Kate then arrives and comments on them deciding to show up. Rex introduces Victoria Margaret to Kate. Kate calls her such a beautiful baby. Kate wishes they had been introduced two days earlier. Sarah apologizes for not calling. Rex adds that things got crazy after the birth but at least Kate is here now for the wedding as he informs her they are getting married right here and right now. Kate comments on them getting their priorities in order and remarks that it doesn’t seem very festive. Rex says they have all they need. Kate asks who is performing the ceremony. Philip announces that will be him.

Maggie finds Bonnie in the town square and says she was going to come see her. Bonnie complains about the Salem Inn and asks how Maggie is as she hopes she got some sleep. Maggie says not really. Bonnie understands that Maggie just lost her husband and got kicked out of her house by Vivian. Bonnie remembers the briefcase and hopes there was something in there to kick Vivian to the curb. Maggie confirms that Victor made a new will and he was in the process of drawing it up when he discovered that he and Vivian were never legally divorced, so he left her 50% of his estate. Bonnie is thrilled and calls that wonderful news. Bonnie guesses the rest of the family split the other 50% but Maggie says not exactly. Bonnie argues that Justin was his favorite nephew so he must have left them something. Maggie responds that she’s sorry but Victor left the entire other half to his son. Bonnie questions which one.

Justin informs Alex that Vivian gets nothing and Maggie gets half of everything. Alex calls that great news and says they must be relieved. Alex guesses there’s a catch and asks if it’s about the other half of Victor’s estate. Justin confirms that it is. Alex questions what the hell Victor did and if he cut them out or left the other half to Bo or Philip. Justin reveals that Victor left the other half of his estate to his other son that none of them knew about. Alex asks if he’s kidding. Justin wishes he was but says it’s all explained in the letter. Alex questions Victor leaving half of his estate to some secret son and calls it insane after everything Justin did for him and the family. Alex argues that there must be some way to fight it, calling it wrong what Victor did. Justin shouts at him to stop and then reveals the letter was written by Anjelica and hands it to him to read. Justin cries that he doesn’t know how else to tell him this, but he’s not his father, Victor is.

Maggie reveals to Bonnie that Alex is not Justin’s son, he’s Victor’s son. Bonnie can’t believe it. Maggie says it was spelled out pretty clearly in Anjelica’s letter. Bonnie calls it crazy and asks how Justin is dealing with this. Bonnie can’t believe that Justin is not Alex’s father.

Xander tells Chloe that he can’t believe he is Victoria’s father. Xander doesn’t know what to say and brings up that if Chloe hadn’t overheard Philip and Rex, he might never have known. Chloe states that he might not have known anyway as she admits that at first, she was thinking of keeping the secret for her own sake and she thought it would be respecting Sarah’s wishes to keep her mouth shut, but she realized she’s loyal to Xander, not Sarah, and he deserved to know the truth. Chloe adds that there is more. Chloe explains that Sarah isn’t really in love with Rex and is only with him to cement the story that Rex is the father as she was willing to do whatever it took for Xander to not find out the truth so that’s the only reason they are getting married. Xander realizes they are getting married right now at the Pub. Chloe asks if Xander wants to go there.

Kate questions Philip performing the ceremony. Philip explains that he got ordained online and jokes about Rex having two brothers that are ministers. Roman suggests they get the show on the road. Rex says he can’t wait. Philip then begins the ceremony. Rex says I do while Sarah hesitates.

Xander asks if Chloe thinks he should go cause a scene. Chloe thinks he needs to go tell Sarah that he knows everything, before she marries Rex. Xander reminds Chloe that they were about to get married and were heading to New York to meet her parents and Parker. Chloe argues that he’s not thinking straight since this changes everything. Xander feels nothing has changed and they are still the same people they were this morning. Chloe stops Xander and repeats that this changes everything, now that they know the truth about the baby and Sarah. Chloe asks if he can honestly say it doesn’t change everything. Xander tells Chloe that he really cares about her. Chloe kisses him and says she knows he does. Xander says he loves her. Chloe tells him to just go, so Xander then rushes out of the apartment as Chloe cries.

Bonnie tells Maggie that she has to go find Justin. Maggie asks her to sit with her for a bit and give Justin and Alex time to talk. Bonnie argues that Justin is her husband and he needs her, so she needs to go to him now. Bonnie asks what would Maggie do if Victor found out one of his children wasn’t his. Maggie tells her that they are at the Horton house so Bonnie rushes off.

Justin and Alex sit down as Alex goes over the fact that Victor is his father. Justin assumes Victor and Anjelica kept it a secret. Alex questions why. Justin explains that according to the letter, Anjelica thought he would be devastated to learn that she lied to him, so she allowed him to think the baby was his and that he would feel incredibly betrayed by Victor, so they kept it from them.

Philip asks Sarah again if she takes Rex to be her husband. Sarah says yes, so Philip asks for the rings which Roman hands over. Rex and Sarah exchange the rings. Philip then pronounces Rex and Sarah as husband and wife. Rex and Sarah kiss as Xander walks in to the Pub.

Alex talks about when he and Brady went to Greece to figure out what Victor was up to and says he never could’ve imagined it would be this. Justin doesn’t care what the letter says and says that Victor may be his biological father, but he’s still his dad in every way that counts and nothing can change that. Justin asks if Alex doesn’t feel that way. Alex responds that he can’t put in to words how he’s feeling as none of it feels real. Alex states that everything he thought of who he is, who his father is, and who his brothers are was all a lie. Alex adds that he was really proud to know Justin is his father since he’s a good, honorable, honest, and kind person. Alex always thought that because he was part of Justin, that deep down that was inside of him too. Alex thinks that always gave him hope for himself until now. Justin encourages that he is a good person and says he’s always believed in him because he knows how smart he is and what a good heart he has. Alex feels like he’s going to wake up from a very strange nightmare. Alex decides he needs to be alone right now. Justin says he understands and exits the room.

Chloe paces at her apartment and looks at the dart board on the wall, remembering when she and Xander first got it. Chloe holds back tears and sits down with her phone. Chloe then calls her mom and cries that the wedding is off.

Xander says he’s sorry to crash the party. Sarah questions what he’s doing here. Xander responds that he came for his baby. Kate argues it’s not his baby. Xander asks if she’s sure about that and tells her to ask them. Philip questions what he’s talking about. Xander reveals that Chloe was in the town square and heard Rex and Philip talking about how the baby is actually his, but Chloe had the decency to tell him before they got a plane to New York to get married. Rex argues that Chloe must have misunderstood. Xander tells Sarah to say something. Sarah reveals that Chloe didn’t misunderstand and confirms that Victoria is Xander’s. Xander tells Sarah that they need to talk alone.

Maggie sits in the town square and calls Vivian, leaving a message that she needs to see her as soon as possible as they have something very important to discuss.

Bonnie finds Justin crying over the letter at the Horton house. Bonnie informs him that she just talked to Maggie and she’s so sorry. Bonnie hugs Justin as he breaks down crying.

Alex goes to the Kiriakis Mansion and stands at Victor’s portrait, questioning how this can be happening and how Victor can be his father.

Roman brings drinks to Rex and Kate and says he thought they could use them. Kate guesses Victoria is not their granddaughter. Rex confirms that and says that’s why he was so slow to tell them about her. Kate asks if that means Rex and Sarah weren’t in a real relationship. Rex responds that Sarah wasn’t, but he was.

Xander and Sarah go outside to talk. Xander questions how Sarah could do this and keep Victoria from him.

Chloe tells Nancy that it’s okay and that she doesn’t have to come. Chloe promises that she’ll be fine and she’ll talk to her later. Chloe hangs up and then Philip shows up at her door.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


Roman, you are not going to believe this. What is it? What’s wrong? Well, I just ran into your sister and she said… I mean, honestly, I don’t even feel like I can tell you. It’s so upsetting. I mean, I am. I am. But you… You should be warned. It’s really disturbing. What? What did Kayla say? Congratulations. On what?

Apparently, Sarah Horton gave birth to our grandchild and no one told us.

Have you shared any of your good news with our mother? No, not yet. Why not? Well, because I feel guilty lying to her. Lying? About what?

I’m not the baby’s father. What do you mean? Victoria’s not my daughter. She’s Xander’s. You’re joking, right? No, I’m not joking. Xander is the father of Sarah’s baby.

Xander? What a surprise. It’s little Victoria. She’s great. Now that she’s sleeping. How are you doing? Exhausted, but otherwise fine. So you’re recovered from that scare after the birth? Yeah, thankfully so. I’m being discharged today. Oh, great. So what brings you by? Oh, I just, um… That’s something I wanted to tell you.

Xander is Victoria’s father. He has a right to know. Um, actually there’s something I want to tell you, too.

Thank you so much for coming, Alexander. I got your text. What the hell do you want? Well, I’ll be brief. The thing is, I’m running Titan now, and I need a right hand man, and I thought of you as my first choice. You want to hire me? Yes, I have big plans for Titan. And, uh, from what I’ve heard about you, I think you’re exactly the right thing.

Well, I gotta say, Vivian, I am very grateful for this opportunity. Really? Yes, because now I can tell you to take your job and shove it. Wow.

So now we know. Victor destroyed his old will and had this… New and drawn up and, well, he was in Greece. The question is why? Well, he had just been to Visebo. Do you think that had anything to do with it? Possibly. I wonder what changes he made. Only one way to find out.

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

So… What’s your news? Um, you go first.

Chloe and I are getting married. Yeah, I know that already. No, I mean, we’re getting married today. Oh. Not that you care or anything, I just wanted you to hear it from me first. Um, that’s uh, that’s very, that’s very considerate of you. Uh, congratulations. Thanks. So, um, what was it you wanted to tell me?

I don’t get it. If Xander’s the father, why have you been telling everyone the baby’s yours? Sarah asked me to. Why? Alright, let’s rewind a bunch of months here. So, Sarah and Xander… They were very happily married. Until Sarah finds out about what Xander did to Bonnie and Susan. The whole deranged clown thing.

Exactly. And then after all that happened, Sarah finds out she’s pregnant with Xander’s baby. And she doesn’t want a guy like Xander, who’s capable of something so horrible, to be the father of her child. So, I stepped in. Hey, I, I realize as I’m saying this, I might be bringing some stuff up for you, like about Claire.

No, this is totally different. Xander’s a criminal. He put Sarah through so much already, it makes sense that a double kidnapping was the last straw. Exactly. So she had to get away from him. So she signs the divorce papers, moves to Chicago, so nobody finds out she’s pregnant. Not even her own mother.

You’re the lawyer, you should read it. Do you need a minute? No, I’m ready. Okay. Victor Yergos Kiriakis, being of sound mind and under no undue influence or duress, hereby declare this to be my last will and testament, revoking all previous wills and codicils. Before I enumerate my final wishes, it should be stated that in the course of drawing up this new document, some very upsetting information has come to light.

My estate attorney discovered that, due to a ghastly clerical error, My divorce from Vivian Alomain was never finalized. Therefore, my beloved Maggie and I were never legally married. I intend to rectify this deeply regrettable mistake the moment I return to Salem, and trust me, heads are going to roll. Ha ha ha ha.

Of course. It is my intention to finalize my divorce and make Maggie my wife as soon as possible. In the meantime, I want to ensure that she’s provided for in the event of my death. And to that end, I hereby leave 50 percent of my entire estate to Margaret Simmons Horton. Oh, Maggie. Oh. Oh.

Uh, what I wanted to tell you was that, um, Rex and I are also getting married today. Oh. It’s, it’s quite a coincidence. Are you sure you’re up for it? Well, yeah, um, like I said, I’m, I’m getting discharged and now that our baby is here we just want to make our little family official. Makes sense. I know you’re a fiercely independent woman, but of course you want your daughter to have her father’s name.

So, how did you end up in the role of baby daddy? A few months ago, Bonnie comes to Chicago to see Mimi and Emily. Why am I not surprised Bonnie’s a mother? I know, right? So, it’s my night with Emily. So Bonnie comes over to my apartment and she finds a very pregnant Sarah. So I immediately jump in and say the kid’s mine.

Did she buy it? No, not at all. But Sarah did convince her to stay silent. So Bonnie’s the only one who knows. Mmm, Justin knows, Maggie knows. But everybody’s going to keep it a secret from Xander because that’s what Sarah wants. And I, I get it. If he knew Victoria was his daughter, it would bond him and Sarah for life.

She’d never be rid of him. Plus, she, she would never be sure that she and her baby would be safe. Look, can you please, please keep this a secret? Don’t tell anybody. I know Xander’s your cousin. I have zero loyalty. More importantly, I don’t want to mess things up for you. I know you never stopped loving Sarah, and you two are getting married.

Oh yeah, the wedding. For Sarah, the wedding is just about… Protecting her child, for me, I’ve made it very clear to Sarah that I’m doing everything I can to win her back, for real. Which will be a hell of a lot easier without Xander sniffing around. Yeah. So, you have my word, brother. I will keep my mouth shut.

Thank you. Really, I appreciate that. Especially since telling the truth would clear a path for you and Chloe.

Sarah had a baby? Yes. I was told, not by our son, that her water broke after Victor’s funeral and they didn’t even make it to the hospital. Is the baby okay? Kayla told me that our granddaughter is just fine. So they had a girl? I need him to Victoria. Let’s go. Where? To the hospital to see our brand new grandbaby.

Not so fast.

Well, I’m really disappointed. I thought you’d take my offer. Now, why would you think that, knowing we despise you? What did I ever do to you? You’ve been messing with my family for years. And what you did to my brother, Sonny. Yeah, that dirtbag Leo Stark falsely accused him of sexual harassment. You made his life a living hell and you still hadn’t let up on us because you just kicked my father and his wife out of their own home.

Well, I think Justin should find his own place to live. And who is that hillbilly wife? She’s not your mother! Bonnie’s still my family. And so was Maggie. Oh, really? I didn’t know you cared about Maggie.

Thank you.

Thank you, my darling. Hmm.

So, Victor knew that he was still married to Vivian. Do you think that’s why he created this new will? Well, the lawyer stated that he discovered the upsetting information about Vivian while he was drawing this up, which means the changes were already in motion. There is so much to process. Well, one thing is clear, Maggie.

My uncle was madly in love with you, and he couldn’t wait to marry you. Well, I wish we had gotten that chance. You know, it’s, it’s, it’s painful to think that our marriage wasn’t real. You know, I was there at your wedding. In fact, I think I was the one who pronounced you husband and wife. That’s right. The Justin of the Peace D.

K. couldn’t make it because of that snowstorm or something. Neither could the guests, or the caterer, or the florist, the musicians. But it didn’t matter. Because there was so much love in that room. The love that I saw that day and continued to see throughout the years you spent together was real, Maggie.

And an improperly filed piece of paper doesn’t change that. Ah, Justin. You know, I have to admit, this whole mystery surrounding Victor’s will, it hasn’t been easy on me. And it’s not because of the money. I don’t care about that. I don’t care about it. It’s Vivian. Yeah. Yeah, knowing that that will was destroyed and that Viper is gonna get it.

Everything. There is a little part of me though, I guess, that wondered whether Victor’s feelings for me had changed. But now you don’t need to wonder anymore. Victor’s feelings and his intentions are all here in black and white. And that’s for Vivian. Well, I can’t wait to see the look on her face when she discovers that she will inherit nothing.

Unless Victor left her the other 50%. Oh, not a chance. But I am curious about the other half.

Yeah. So, uh, where are you and Rex getting married? Um, he’s asking his parents if we could just do it at the pub. A family owned establishment, great choice. Uh, how about you? Hope we didn’t pick the same venue. No worries there. Chloe’s family are all in New York, so we’re gonna hop on a plane in a couple of hours.

Tie the knot over there. Nice. Ugh, it’ll be my first time meeting Parker. I hope he doesn’t hate my guts. No, my nephew is very sweet. I’m sure you two will get along just fine. Still, it’s bound to be awkward. Hi, nice to meet you. I’m your new stepdad. Well, maybe don’t lead with that. But, just be yourself.


less dopey. Got it. Seriously, Xander. You’re gonna be a great dad. Do you really

think so? Think about it. Xander finds out the baby is his. pretty good chance he’s gonna try to get Sarah back, which would free Chloe up to be with you. Maybe, but I’m not going down that road again. I mean, yes, I still love Chloe, but it’s too late for us. I’ve screwed up too many times. Everything I’ve done, I disagree with that.

Bottom line, Chloe’s with Xander, which is better for you, Sarah, and the baby. Right now, that’s all that matters. I appreciate you. Thank you. It means a lot to me. Hey, since you’re being so magnanimous, I have one more favor. Shoot. So, you know, Sarah and I are getting married today. I’m gonna ask my parents if we can use the pub, but we need somebody to officiate.

I would like it to be you. I’d be honored. Great. Look, you have to get ordained. It’s really quick. You can do it online. But, um, hey, I gotta go pick up Sarah and the baby right now, but I’ll meet you at the pub. I’ll see you there. All right.

So, you don’t want to meet our granddaughter? No, of course I do, but Rex didn’t even have the courtesy to tell us that his child was born. I mean, why shouldn’t we wait? Okay, look, I know you’re hurt, but aren’t you being just a little bit petty about this? Two days. He had two days. He could’ve texted us. He could’ve, he could’ve phoned us.

Hell, he could’ve even sent me a, a baby emoji. He could’ve given us anything. Look, Kate, you know what it’s like having a newborn. Total chaos. No sleep. No, it’s more than that. What do you mean? I mean, he was really squirrely about this whole thing right from the beginning. I mean, not telling us that he and Sarah were back together again.

Not to mention the engagement. And then to walk out that door and turn and say, Oh, by the way, Sarah’s pregnant with my child. That, uh, that was a little strange, yeah. It’s all very strange. Something’s not right about this. My Aunt Maggie and I are getting along just fine now. Thank you. She’s also grieving the husband that she just lost.

So while you probably get off on compounding her pain. I want no part of it. Oh, that was very moving. But you’re not exactly an altruist. What the hell does that mean, Vivian? You sort of remind me of your mother. Angelica Devereaux.

You knew my mother? No, I knew her through Victor. She was sort of cutthroat and shrewd, which I think is exactly what your instincts are.

You know, my Uncle Vic said the same thing to me. That I have a killer instinct. Well, there you are. Embrace that instinct. Come work with me at Titan. Make your uncle proud. Okay,

where were we? Um… The personal effects listed below are to be distributed to my various family members, as indicated. Aside from these items, the other 50 percent of my estate, including controlling interest in Titan, shall go to my son. Which son? He knew Bo was in a coma. I can’t imagine it would be him.

Well, he must have been chillin Possibly. But Kate said Victor set up a separate trust for him. Well, keep, keep reading. I love my sons Bo and Phillip a great deal and have made arrangements for their medical care to be covered indefinitely. However, neither of them is the son to whom I am referring. Paul, I, I, I don’t understand.

The son who will inherit the other half of my estate is one I have heretofore never acknowledged.

Yeah, Xander, I think that you’re capable of being a very loving father. Or stepfather. I saw how you were with Mackenzie. Except she wasn’t really Mackenzie, she was… Actually, Rachel. Yeah, we don’t have to revisit that one. I know that you switched the babies to spare me pain. Yeah, but I just ended up making everything so much worse.

Yeah, that is the trouble that you get into. You make bad decisions. Sometimes they come from a good place, but other times, they don’t. Either way, people get hurt. I don’t want to make that same mistake with Parker. I want to be the kind of man that he can look up to. A good man. I kind of said that before, but…

This time, hopefully… It’ll be different. Hopefully. All right, I should, I should get going. I don’t want to miss that flight. Hey, good luck with the wedding. Xander,

I hope you and Chloe are very happy together.


right. You are right, Ashley. Rex’s behavior has been, uh, A little off. I don’t know. Maybe he’s angry at us. Maybe he’s angry at you. You think it’s my fault? No, no. Wait a minute. Look, all I’m asking is this. Do you think that maybe you did something to rub him the wrong way? You have been known to alienate your kids from time to time.

Don’t I know it? Okay. Did you know that Sarah had her baby? Kayla told me. Oh, there you go. At least we’re not the only ones left in the dark. He didn’t even tell his brother. I actually just ran into him. Really? So did he mention the reason that he neglected to tell the family about his baby? I’d better let him answer that.

He’s coming here to see you guys after he picks up Sarah and the baby from the hospital. Okay, you know, you see now you’re acting just as squirrelly as he is. What is going on? What are you not telling me? Nothing. Well, obviously that’s a lie. Wow, Mom, I thought Vivian was being aggressive. Vivian? What do you mean?

Oh, she asked me down to Titan earlier. Offered me a job as her right hand man. What? Oh yeah, she had a whole big pitch. Said I was her first choice for the position. Okay, so what did you say? What do you think I said? I turned her down flat. I cannot believe the nerve of that woman trying to draw you into her web again.

This is not going to happen. Okay. Mom, it’s fine. I already told her no. Well, believe me, there are a few more things that I want to say to her. I am going to give that bitch a piece of my mind.

I may be many things, Vivian, but I’m not a traitor. So no, I will not be betraying my family and partnering up with the enemy. Well, aren’t you already working with the enemy? Basic Black is owned. I don’t have to explain my career choices to you at all. My answer is no. And that’s not gonna change. Leave me the hell alone.

Doesn’t anybody want to work anymore?

So who’s the other son? I have no idea. Well, what does Victor say about it? I take this action not to punish my other heirs, but to make amends for denying my son his birthright from the day he was born. Oh, my God. After visiting Bo, I began to reflect upon my legacy, and came to realize that this is a secret I can no longer keep.

My son deserves to know the truth, and I plan to tell him in person upon my return to Salem. However, I’m also officially documenting it, so there will be no confusion or unanswered questions. The attached letter will explain everything. Letter?

There’s nothing in that stack of letters that they found in Victor’s childhood home. Well, there’s so many of them. Oh. To be included with my will.

Dear Victor, After much back and forth, I am so pleased that we’re finally on the same page about this. As you know, there is nothing more important to me In the future of our son, I’ll admit I wasn’t happy when you showed up at the hospital for his birth. But now that several months have passed, I realized it was your right to be there as he is as much yours as he is mine.

In fact, every time I look at our precious baby, I see you. The dark hair, the dark eyes, the way he screams his head off. When he doesn’t get his way, your pull toward him is only natural. But you must promise me that you will stick to the plan. No one can know that you are the father of my child. It would cause immeasurable pain to a man that we both love.

He’d be devastated to learn that I have lied to him. That I allowed him to think our sweet boy is his.

He would feel incredibly betrayed by you. And his own flesh and blood Does this mean Victor’s son was raised by someone in his own family

We need to talk What can I do for you, Kate? Well, for starters, you can stay away from my son. I assume you mean Philip. Yeah. He told me that you offered him a job. I thought he wanted to be part of his father’s legacy. Not if he has to work with someone like you. What’s the matter, Kate? You jealous? Does your blood boil seeing me in this office?

No. Actually, I feel sick to my stomach. And Phillip must have as well, because he rejected you in record time, didn’t he? Of course, you’re used to that with Kiriakis men. Hmm, Viv? Anyway, bottom line, you’re going to have to find someone else to do your dirty work. How about you? Hi.

Hi. Great timing. I just got discharged. I was about to get dressed. Do you have the rings? Yeah, right here. Did you ask your parents about the pub? I thought we could ask them together. Go over there and they could meet the baby. How’s she doing? She’s great. She even managed to sleep through a visit from Xander.

What was he doing here? Um, he came to tell me that he and Chloe are also getting married today. Today? It’s a big day for weddings, I guess. Yeah. Hey. I know I’ve said this a lot. This is a big decision. If you’re having any second thoughts about this wedding.

For the last time. Marrying you is the best decision for me, for Victoria, for everyone.


Looks like someone found a dress. Uh, yep, I, I lucked out. Great, well, better go get packed. We don’t want to miss our flight, do we? Everybody’s gonna keep it a secret from Xander because that’s what Sarah wants. And I, I get it. If he knew Victoria was his daughter, I would bond him and Sarah for life. Chloe?

Is something wrong? No, no, no, no. I, I’m, I’m fine. I’m, I’m just thinking I can’t… I can’t believe this is finally happening. I should go get packed.

My God, Justin. Someone in this family is Victor’s son and he doesn’t know it. I think you should keep reading.

I know you wanted to claim this child as your own, but this is a secret that we must take to our graves. While our son will never know you. As his father, he will at least know you as an uncle. I hope you can take comfort in that. Trust me, Victor, this is what’s best for everyone, especially…

This is what’s best for everyone, especially little Alexander. Sincerely, Angelica.

Okay, are you ready? Yeah, sure am. Hey, um, before we go, I just, I really want to thank you for something. For what? For looking past all my faults. You know, my arrogance, my temper, my lack of skill at darts and putting things on walls. And still finding it in your heart to… Love me anyway, I can’t believe I got so lucky that such a beautiful, generous, kind woman has agreed to spend the rest of her life with me.

Chloe, I promise,

I’m going to work so hard to prove myself worthy of your love each and every day.

Alright, let’s get hitched.

I’m sorry, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t, I can’t marry you. Why? Because of Sarah. Chloe, come on, we’ve talked about this so many times, I’m totally over Sarah, I really am. I just met, um, a s Sarah, she lied to you. Rex isn’t the father of her baby. You are.

Dad, someone I’d like you to meet. Well, it’s about time. This is Victoria. Oh my god, she is just absolutely beautiful. Congrats you two. Thank you. I’d have known she’d arrived and I’d have sent over a whole lot of food. Yeah. Why didn’t you tell us? She, she came a little early. The birth was a little dicey.

There was just a lot going on. Yeah, well don’t worry about it. All is forgiven now that I’ve met my beautiful granddaughter. But your mother, that is a whole different story. She’s uh, she’s pretty ticked off of you. Yeah, I kind of figured. Um, where is mom? Do

you think that I would want to work for you? Well, I can’t say you’re my first choice, but I do admire your chops as a businesswoman. Vivian, you have never admired anything about me. That is not true. I thought you were a perfectly worthy adversary. Why don’t we stop this animosity and team up together?

Well, if you think that’s ever going to happen, you’re completely out of your mind. Okay, your loss. You can see yourself out. This really is a travesty, you being in charge. You can insult me all you want, Kate, but the fact is I run Victor’s company now, and you and no one else is going to be able to stop me.

No, no, no, that can’t be right. Angelica signed the letter.

Oh my God. I can’t believe this. The child that she’s talking about.

Victor’s son. It’s Alex.

Transcript provided by Suzanne

Tucker: Done. The first million has been deposited into your account. The second million will be deposited upon completion of your end of the deal. You don’t trust me?

Phyllis: I’m confirming the deposit. I would do that with any business transaction. By the way, our agreement was two million plus an extra 200,000.

Tucker: Right. Which will be deposited upon completion.

Phyllis: No, you just deposited a million. Our agreement was half now the other half later. So, you owe me 100,000.

Tucker: I can’t tell if I’m offended or impressed.

Phyllis: Don’t be offended.

Tucker: No, of course not. There. 100k deposit. Gee, whatever happened to honor among–

Phyllis: Thieves. It’s thieves. Are you planning to steal from billy?

Tucker: No, no, nothing so crass. Scout’s honor.

Phyllis: Well, it’s there. Let’s go.

Tucker: Giddy up. Ugh.

Billy: If this is about my conversation with devon, you made your feelings clear already.

Jack: Yes, you did too when you walked out in the middle of our conversation.

Billy: I didn’t think it was such a big deal. Yet you refused to trust me.

Jack: I merely disagreed with you, billy, and that’s what you remember? I don’t trust you.

Billy: You make that part very clear every day without actually saying anything. The expectation that I’m going to fall to pieces and you’re gonna have to clean up the mess.

Jack: You know what I think this is about? I think this is about the offer that tucker and ashley made you when they were coming after jabot. It was very enticing and you were tempted.

Billy: Jack, I already admitted that. For a fraction of a second, I was enticed by that offer. So much for being honest.

Jack: But when ashley decided she couldn’t turn her back on her family, that ended the threat of ashley and tucker coming after us. It also ended your chance to be solely in charge of their stolen company. And I think a part of you, the aggrieved, competitive little brother felt cheated and that’s why you’re angry.

Billy: Can we skip the analysis, please, and just get to the point?

Jack: I don’t think this is working, billy. I was debating on whether to come over here. You looked like you were in the zone.

Sally: Well, my business plan can survive a moment of distraction.

Adam: How’s it coming along?

Sally: I feel pretty good about it.

Adam: Well, once you get it in shape, I’d love to take a look at it. I could be a fresh set of eyes, it’s one of the few things I excel at.

Sally: I will keep that in mind.

Adam: Look, I, uh, I want to apologize about last night. I offered to walk you to your room and then…

Sally: I thought we were gonna pretend it never happened.

Adam: Uh, I tried, but it’s not working very well. I hate that I put you in that awkward position. But I would be lying if I said I’m sorry that I kissed you. I can’t stop thinking about it. Oh, hello! Hi!

Announcer: Additional sponsorship provided by…

Sally: Look, it felt like real progress last night, okay? That we were able to hang out and just be normal, without all the tension.

Adam: I agree.

Sally: Okay, so then let’s not make it more than it was.

Adam: Okay. I’m– I’m just being honest.

Sally: I know. And I also don’t want you telling me all the reasons why we should be together and just claiming that you’re just speaking your truth.

Adam: Okay, that is not what this is.

Sally: Really.

Adam: Look, I’ve made a big deal about how I wanna live differently, without all the games. I want to get back to the basics. I wanna put in the work that it requires, okay? This is me walking the walk or at least trying to.

Sally: By telling me that you can’t stop thinking about kissing me.

Adam: Right, look, if I had pretended like it didn’t affect me, that wouldn’t fly. All right, you know me too well. It would be an act that you’d see right through. And if I said nothing about it, you would have been worried what’s really going on inside my head.

Sally: I– I– I think you’re overthinking this.

Adam: Look, when I tell people that I’m determined to live in a more authentic way, everybody gets suspicious or they just immediately dismiss the idea, or they laugh. Okay? Nobody believes it.

Sally: Since when do you care what other people think?

Adam: See, that is the point. If I’m really gonna make this change, I have to stay on track and I have to ignore those reactions. Like the one you just had.

Sally: I didn’t laugh or dismiss you.

Adam: Yeah, you kinda did. You assumed that I was putting on a front instead of just telling you the simple truth. I loved kissing you again and how it felt. It reminded me how good we are together. And for a moment there, I thought you may have been reminded as well.

Tucker: It shouldn’t take too long, right? Someone of your skill to hack into billy’s bank accounts?

Phyllis: Well, I’m routing this hack through various different locations as a precaution. I don’t want it to be traced to the building in which we both live.

Tucker: That would not be good.

Phyllis: You know, I think I need to go to a public place.

Tucker: A public place where everyone can see your screen?

Phyllis: I’m discreet.

Tucker: Yes, I’m sure you are, but unfortunately I’m not gonna be able to let you out of my sight until you finish.

Phyllis: What? You don’t trust me. I’m– I’m serious. Really, you don’t trust me?

Tucker: I’m simply handling this the way I might any business transaction.

Phyllis: I need that other million. You know that. I need to pay off this insurance debt.

Tucker: Yes, I know. Dying proved very costly for you.

Phyllis: I can’t afford not to hold up my end of the deal.

Tucker: I do have one concern, phyllis. I just want to make sure you don’t leave some kind of back door open. You know, some kind of digital trail that could lead back to me in case billy catches on to this.

Phyllis: I’d never do something like that. I’m too good. Billy will never know that anybody had access to his account.

Tucker: Well, my plan is a little more complicated than that.

Phyllis: What does that mean?

Tucker: You’re not only hacking into billy’s accounts.

Billy: So, when you say that things aren’t working out, I assume you’re talking about jabot. This is your excuse to fire me now?

Jack: We. You ignored everything we talked about and went straight to devon.

Billy: I used a little free will and you got all pissed off about it. I didn’t say anything about tucker to devon that he didn’t already hear from abby.

Jack: That is not the point.

Billy: Hold on a second. Okay, this is gonna be common knowledge very soon that tucker is back in town when he’s supposed to be on his honeymoon. Except he went ballistic on ashley and she kicked him to the curb.

Jack: We don’t know that that’s the whole story.

Billy: Now, you’re taking tucker’s word over our sisters, jack? Okay, look, hold–. The only thing I did was give devon a friendly warning to be careful of tucker’s spin.

Jack: After I was very clear to you I did not want to involve devon that way. Next time I saw you, you were with him working behind my back and then you were so cavalier.

Billy: Because all I was doing was telling the truth and keeping tucker at bay is best for everyone.

Jack: That is not the issue.

Billy: No, you’re right, jack. Protecting our family company is the issue. And I’m sorry if I feel a little pissed off right now, but don’t get excited. It’s not because of a sibling rivalry or me feeling cheated. It’s because I’m the co-ceo and I can’t do my job!

Jack: We are supposed to be working together.

Billy: Right. But we’re gonna bump heads a little bit. Yet you’re so quick to cut me off because I don’t agree with you because I don’t take your word as law?

Jack: The decisions I make are for the good of our family company.

Billy: Well, guess who’s coming after that family company? Tucker mccall, that is guaranteed. And after ashley pulled the 180 in paris, you think he’s gonna be pretty pissed off and vindictive about it?

Jack: Yes, I am aware.

Billy: Right. So, you gotta be careful, jack, about throwing your one ally overboard. Especially when that ally has the ammunition to stop tucker in his tracks. Imagine if you could get ahead of your ibs-C…

Jack: Wow, that is some little nugget you just dropped. You have information that could stop tucker and yet I’ve never heard a word of it. This is no time to play games, billy.

Billy: I have access to information that could be very damaging to tucker. What part of that sounds like a game?

Jack: The timing.

Billy: Right, because you were just about to fire me over trust issues.

Jack: This would be a great opportunity for you to show you are acting in good faith, if indeed what you’re telling me is true.

Billy: You know, jack, I think you’re right. I don’t think things are working out for me here at jabot. I should take my energy somewhere else.

Jack: You would not be that petty.

Billy: Tell that to the aggrieved, competitive little brother.

Jack: If you have information that could stop tucker from harming our company, you owe it to the entire family and to dad’s legacy to let me know what it is.

Billy: Jack, you’re getting a little desperate, you’re resorting to emotional blackmail.

Jack: You are just reaffirming every concern I have about your state of mind and your motives.

Billy: Oh, so it’s my fault that we’re in this place.

Jack: People make choices, choices come with consequences. That’s true for everyone. You have a choice now.

Billy: To share the information with you that could protect the company, right?

Jack: That would be the right move. The good choice.

Billy: The good choice, for you. For jabot.

Jack: Wait, that’s your answer?

Billy: No, that’s not my answer. I do want to use the information to protect jabot, but I also think it’s in my best interest to leverage it to keep my job.

Phyllis: Wait a second, I’m giving you what you want. You– you wanted access to billy’s account and that’s what I’m doing. I mean, whatever you want to do with it, that’s on you. I have nothing to do with that and that’s it.

Tucker: No, the million dollars plus I’ve already deposited into your account says otherwise.

Phyllis: No, no, no, I’m giving you what you wanted, what you asked for.

Tucker: I haven’t told you everything I want.

Phyllis: You can’t just change the terms of our agreement.

Tucker: You took the money, phyllis. And you need that other half, don’t you? So you’re in it, man. It is too late to go back now. I can absolutely change the deal, unless you’d like to refund me the million. Call the whole thing off. Plus the 100k.

Phyllis: Oh, wow. You’re a bastard.

Tucker: I know.

Phyllis: This is so dirty.

Tucker: Yeah, you should’ve seen it coming. You should’ve seen the bigger picture, unless perhaps you were scheming your own little dirty plan. Maybe take all my money and leave me hanging out to dry.

Phyllis: What are you planning to do? Tell me.

Tucker: You’re going to hack into jabot’s corporate checking account and make a sizable transfer from it.

Phyllis: Into billy’s account?

Tucker: Very good. See, devious minds do think alike.

Phyllis: You’re gonna make it look like billy is stealing from his family company.

Tucker: And then, the fun begins.

Adam: No, I’m good. Thank you.

Sally: Thanks. Look, about this new and improved you, all honest and authentic…

Adam: No, look, come on. It’s a work in progress.

Sally: If you feel compelled to share your feelings, that’s one thing. But when you start making assumptions about mine, you’ve crossed a line.

Adam: Okay. I can understand why you feel that way.

Sally: Okay, so when in doubt, just say less.

Adam: Got it. I just– I sensed something when we kissed.

Sally: Look, it doesn’t matter whether or not I was reminded of how things used to be because it has nothing to do with where we are now.

Adam: Okay.

Sally: Okay. Because it’s like I keep having to remind you that I am with nick. I have moved on. I’m starting a business and– and you…

Adam: Should say less, yes

Sally: You are starting your career over again from the bottom. You’re trying to impress your family, trying to prove yourself to your father. It’s not gonna be easy.

Adam: Well, I’m taking it one day at a time.

Sally: You said so yourself, people don’t trust this sudden desire for you to recreate yourself.

Adam: Well, I– I will continue to maintain modest expectations.

Sally: Neither of us has time for this mess.

Adam: May I make an observation?

Sally: What?

For your most brilliant smile,

Sally: You’re doing it again. You’re reading into things.

Adam: I just made an observation.

Sally: Okay, well, whatever you observed wasn’t there. Okay? And– and I never implied what you implied.

Adam: What? That we would be a mess.

Sally: Okay. Well, yes, that. But I mean, as far as me wanting the mess and it just being an inconvenience, that’s you.

Adam: You’re right.

Sally: And I don’t mean you as in you making an observation. You as in wishful thinking.

Adam: No, I said that you are right.

Sally: Okay.

Adam: But, I just…

Sally: What?

Adam: Sally, there was a whole future laid out for us. We were gonna be parents to a little girl and everything that goes along with that. I mean, the joy and the hope, the first everything and she was taken away from us, but the feelings are still swirling around in there.

Sally: I know. I– I– I get it. That– yeah, the loss. It’s there every day.

Adam: Yeah, but it’s the feelings about you too. It’s like– it’s like I keep holding on to this thread of hope and I can’t let it go.

Sally: Hope for what exactly? I mean, what is it that you want? Do you even know?

Adam: Of course, I know. I– I want you to wake up one day. I want you to come to me and say, “I may love nick, but I’m still in love with you.”

Billy: You know, this conversation started with you telling me that this wasn’t working out, so I think it’s best that I consider my interests.

Jack: You’re not fired, billy.

Billy: Wow. You really want that dirt on tucker, don’t you?

Jack: No, I want to get us out of this cycle. The back and forth, constantly questioning and doubting each other. It’s leading us in a downward spiral.

Billy: Okay, so what do you suggest?

Jack: That we listen to each other. That we stop just reacting.

Billy: That’s a little difficult for me because I constantly feel like the other shoe is about to drop.

Jack: I don’t like it any better than you do. I thought we were going to be working together. If we agree on something for the good of the company, I can’t be worried about you going behind my back to do exactly the opposite of what we discussed.

Billy: You know, what? Starting now, I will be more considerate and less reactive.

Jack: That’s all I want, billy. Look, if we can’t be honest, if we can’t compromise, we can never have a partnership.

Billy: Okay. Well, if we’re being honest, I don’t think you’ll ever see me as a true partner.

Jack: Wait, I have given you every opportunity.

Billy: See that right there, jack. It’s you giving me the opportunity. You in control. You saying yes, no, continue. Whatever it is. One finger on the kill switch. Always expecting me to fail.

Jack: No, always hoping you will get out of your own damn way!

Phyllis: I’m very uncomfortable taking it to this extreme. I’m very uncomfortable.

Tucker: That’s okay with me. I’m comfortable with your discomfort.

Phyllis: But you know what? The only reason I’m doing this is because of jeremy stark because he stole money from my insurance company. I have to pay ’em back now.

Tucker: Yes. And this is a means to that end.

Phyllis: What? By screwing billy over? What? Why? I– I can’t do it. I– I, I’m trying to be a better person.

Tucker: I know. That’s great.

Phyllis: I promised my kids, tucker.

Tucker: Oh, that’s fantastic. I wonder why you’re trying to accomplish that, if you could find a better way to get billy out of the way. You know he’s dipped his hand into the candy jar before. This just shows a pattern. He can’t help himself.

Phyllis: I don’t understand this. It was jack and diane who took issue with you and ashley, not billy. Why do you have a problem with billy?

Tucker: I don’t have a problem with billy personally. I like him. He just happens to be in a position to help me achieve my final objective.

Phyllis: Which is? ‘Cause you’re not sharing it with me.

Tucker: That’s correct. Now, can we get back to work? Phyllis, tick tock, tick tock.

Phyllis: No, I’m not doing it. Want your clothes to smell freshly

Announcer: The young and the restless will continue.

Tucker: Phyllis, did you actually believe I only wanted to take a little peek at billy’s bank account and nothing more?

Phyllis: I mean, I didn’t know. I kept on asking you what you were doing and you wouldn’t tell me.

Tucker: But you knew I was targeting billy, didn’t you? It must have occurred to you that this was not gonna end well for him. And yet, here you are. You showed up with your shiny new untraceable laptop, all ready to go.

Phyllis: I didn’t think that you were going to set him up for embezzlement. I didn’t think that. I mean, diane, sure, of course. Jack, yeah, but billy? He hasn’t done anything to deserve this.

Tucker: He has, he has embezzled from jabot.

Phyllis: Well, a long time ago. You were on some mountain somewhere when that happened.

Tucker: Right. And he was forgiven. He was welcomed back into the fold just like after all his other massive screwups. Hey, when has anyone ever made your life easy, ever? So, what do you care if billy gets accused of something that’s totally in character for him?

Phyllis: He’s worked so hard on himself, that’s all. He’s worked so hard to change.

Tucker: Mm-mm, no. That’s not what I hear. I hear he’s the same old billy. I hear it’s just a matter of time before he backslides and pulls something like this anyway.

Phyllis: Well, people could say the same thing about me.

Tucker: Well, imagine billy is backed into a corner like the one you find yourself in. Do you think he would hesitate for a second to throw you under the bus? You’re close, phyllis. You’re so close to getting out from under this massive debt you found yourself in. Thanks to me. And while I appreciate your desire for self-improvement, I would appreciate further if you didn’t do it on my time. Okay? So… you really want to piss me off at this point? Okay.

Phyllis: You’re hovering.

Tucker: Just pretend I’m not here.

Phyllis: Well, I can’T. You’re breathing on my neck.

Tucker: Yeah, well, that’s a good exercise for you. I want you to breathe phyllis, deeply. And I want you to– to be aware of all the– the chatter and all the obstacles that life has continually been throwing at you. And I want you to find your center and I want you to find it way down in your– your root chakra. There you are. Good. Good. Ah, you and billy and jack, huh? What a mess you got into there!

Phyllis: Okay. I’m just gonna focus.

Tucker: Consider this a meditation. By the way, I really admire how you’ve managed the abbott brothers. Kept them in your corner. Oh, you did make things particularly hard for yourself this time, didn’t you? What you put diane through?

Phyllis: Not really listening to you.

Tucker: Say, did you ever find a way to smooth things over with jack?

Phyllis: Oh, crap.

Tucker: What?

Phyllis: I hit a firewall. I can’t get around it.

Tucker: Or you’re stalling?

Jack: Billy, this is what worries me most. That you will lose track of who your real friends are. The people who actually have your back.

Billy: It sure feels like I’ve been on my own a lot lately.

Jack: Oh, I have been frustrated. I know that. I– I have been worried about you, but I’ve been honest about that. That’s what real friends do. They don’t just tell you what you want to hear.

Billy: Well, it would be nice to not be viewed as disposable.

Jack: Disposable? I have enormous respect for your skills, your talents, your brilliant creative process. I have always wanted you to shine and I’ve given you every opportunity.

Billy: See, right there. Sounds like you’re doing me a favor.

Jack: Okay. Then– then– then let me say that differently. I have given you this latest opportunity and you have made the very most of it. You have accomplished amazing things since you took over as co-ceo. We just managed a serious potential threat working together. Now, tucker appears to be coming after us on his own and you claim to have information that might stop him. I’m asking for your help.

Billy: I don’t have the information. Adam does. And he knows how important it is to us.

Jack: And how do we know this is legitimate?

Billy: I saw tucker and adam arguing a few weeks ago. It seemed pretty intense. Tucker usually has a pretty good poker face, but this was getting under his skin. He wasn’t his usual pithy self.

Jack: And I assume you discussed this argument with adam?

Billy: He came to me and said that he has damaging information on tucker and he’s willing to share it.

Jack: For a price?

Billy: Of course, for a price. It’s adam. He’s not gonna do anything that doesn’t benefit him. Look, jack, if you’re serious about working together to protect the company…

Jack: Of course, I am. I meant everything I just said.

Billy: Well then, given my history with adam, I don’t like the– the odds of my success. He’s gonna make it personal. He’s gonna play games and I don’t want this to go sideways. I think you should be the one to negotiate with adam. Febreze!

Sally: I– I– I don’t know what I’m supposed to do with that statement. I– I–

Adam: I– I– I don’t expect you to do anything, sally. You asked me what I wanted and I told you.

Sally: Mm-hmm. In the spirit of honesty and transparency.

Adam: Yes.

Sally: That you– that you just want me to just leave nick, forget about everything that we have and choose you.

Adam: That is my hope. Everything that I felt when I kissed you again is that the decision is already made.

Sally: What? It’s just a matter of admitting it, based on… based on what? I mean, do you think I have this secret longing?

Adam: I– I– I didn’t want to get involved with you, sally. In the beginning, I wanted to keep things strictly business. But even then there– there was something. I mean, I– I– I found myself bringing you roses or finding excuses just to show up in the same room as you, and then you started to do the same thing. I mean, are you going to say that I imagined all of that?

Sally: No.

Adam: And then, in tuscany? You remember.

Sally: Yeah, of course, I do. But–

Adam: When you convinced victoria to wear your dress that you designed, you were flying high on that achievement in that beautiful romantic place and then I kissed you, but I wouldn’t let it go any further. And not because I didn’t want it to or because I’m some– some perfect gentleman. It’s because I knew that it had to be more than just the two of us giving into a moment.

Sally: Look, I’m not denying that we had good times or that we loved each other. But I mean, things have changed. We changed.

Adam: And then, we went through a hurt and a loss that no two people should ever have to experience and that changed the way that we see the world. I mean, it changed the way that we looked at our own life. But as far as us… from the beginning, I mean, through all of it, it’s felt destined. All right, look. I’m– I’m sorry. I’ve said way more than I meant to say.

Sally: Look, I– I can’t keep doing this, okay? This might be your truth, but mine… mine is– is that your truth is just way too much for me.

Adam: Okay, look, the– the last thing that I want is for you to feel pressured in any way. Please note, that was not my intention. Just, I’m glad that we’re in a place where we can talk again.

Jack: It’s true I have a better relationship with adam than most.

Billy: Which I will never understand.

Jack: You know, it started as a mutually beneficial business arrangement, and over time, I think he came to think of me as a father figure, crazy as that sounds.

Billy: Not all that crazy when you consider the father he was saddled with. You know, I always thought your relationship with adam was just an excuse to get under victor’s skin.

Jack: Yeah, I think victor always felt the same way. And maybe at the beginning, it was true, but over time, I saw the damage that relationship had done to adam. The things that made him do and some part of me just wanted to minimize the damage.

Billy: You know, jack, you really do have a big heart and it’s really annoying in situations like this. I mean you gotta know that there’s a part of this that adam uses, right? To slap victor in the face with?

Jack: No, no, there’s more to it than that. There is. I’m connor’s godfather.

Billy: Say what you will.

Jack: All I’m saying is it’s complicated. And for the record, yes, I have a good relationship with adam, but that does not mean I completely trust him.

Billy: Well, I’m glad to hear that. So, do you think this is worth pursuing?

Jack: Billy, I am trying to trust you. I want to work together to build this company, to protect it from outside attacks. To carry it forward for the next generation.

Billy: This is our best shot. And look, adam is a son of a bitch, but he knows better not to sell us information that he doesn’t have. He doesn’t operate that way.

Jack: I’ll reach out to adam, see what I can find out. Hopefully, the information he has on tucker is as valuable as he claims.

Tucker: You know, you brag all the time that this is your superpower. The ability to move around cyberspace undetected. How can you not manage a simple task like hacking into a bank account?

Phyllis: It’s not for lack of trying.

Tucker: This is a bad time to develop a conscience, phyllis.

Phyllis: Oh, gosh. Can you just relax? You want a shot at this?

Tucker: I’m paying you, aren’t I?

Phyllis: Exactly. Not any moron off the street can do this. This is a specialty.

Tucker: Just don’t claim that this is beyond your ability and expect me to bail you out with the rest of the money.

Phyllis: I’m not trying–

Tucker: In fact, I’ll be wanting an immediate refund!

Phyllis: Okay. Do you want a shot at this? Do you want to try? Let me do it.

Tucker: Okay, I just wanted to make sure you were properly motivated.

Phyllis: There.

Tucker: There what?

Phyllis: It’s done. Please move. Get out of my way and stop bugging me now.

Tucker: Okay, let’s see what we got here. Wow, billy’s doing well for himself. Although, I did expect to see a few more zeros. Probably recovering from all that gambling. Which works well for us.

Phyllis: For you.

Tucker: Don’t forget how much you’re benefiting from this, phyllis. Okay, onto jabot. Come on. Giddy up. You like that bone? I got a great price on iT. You see my tail when that chewy box showed up? Oh, I saw it. Sorry about the vase. Can we just say vase like normal people? Fine- I always wondered what it be like to have a tail. Maybe you did. One timE. Maybe a thousand years from now I’ll be tailless using that chewy app to get you great prices on treats. Pretty sure takes more than a thousand years- vase. Pets aren’t just pets they’re more. Vase! Shop and get a $30 egift card through october 1st. At chewy. That grimy film on your teeth?

Phyllis: Hey.

Billy: Hey.

Phyllis: Playing hooky?

Billy: Just grabbing a bite to eat before my next meeting. Um, hey, now that I got you here, I wanted to find out, how’s that venture going with nick and sharon? Are you still in the mix on that?

Phyllis: Uh. Oh, that– that seems to be up in the air.

Billy: Oh, okay. Well, I’m confident you’ll land on your feet.

Phyllis: Thank you.

Billy: You’re nothing, if not resourceful. Hey.

Tucker: Hey.

[ Sally sighing ]

[ Sally exhaling ]

Sally: Oh, nick. Hurry.

Adam: Jack. Hi.

Jack: I gather you were expecting to hear from me?

Adam: Uh, I wish I could say this was a surprise, but you’re right. I figured billy was smart enough to pass this along to you. Call in the big guns with so much at stake.

Jack: Can we meet?

Adam: Sure, jack. Let’s meet.

Transcript provided by Suzanne


[ Siren wailing in distance ]

The beating Drew Cain took was severe. Lacerations, contusions, and head trauma. I’m concerned he still hasn’t regained consciousness. Hopefully the x-rays and CT scan will give us more answers. Let me know when he’s back in the ICU and we get those test results.

Elizabeth: Yes, doctor.

[ Elevator bell dings ]


Jake, what are you doing here? Now’s not a good time.

I have to talk to you about Charlotte.

Anna: Charlotte? Charlotte? Hey. You fell asleep.

I did?


Where’s papa?

Oh, he’s not here.

I-is he coming back?

I doubt it. He has other things to do. He’s very busy, you know, Charlotte.

I need to see him.

Oh, he doesn’t have time.

He says he always has time for me.

Yeah, that was before.

Before what?

Before he fell in love with me. He’s mine now.


Yeah, he’s all mine. He’s mine.

No, no! I want papa! I want papa!

Nina: Charlotte! Charlotte. You had a bad dream. It’s just a bad dream.


Ooh, sor– hey, Portia.

Anna, wait.

[ Indistinct conversations ]

Blaze, hi. So, so sorry that I’m late. I was on my way, and then, well, life happened.

It happens.

Look, I promise I didn’t ask you to come here to waste your time or beat around the bush. After a lot of soul searching and a fair amount of family drama, I have decided to go back to music management, and I’d like to sign you as my first client. So…what do you say?

[ Exhales sharply ] Hey! Fancy seeing you here.

I’m here to see my daughter.

Oh, yeah? She meeting you here?

You. You’re my daughter. I’m here to see you.

What’s up?

I have a message from your sister.

Please say Sam.


Excuse me. Do you know where I can find Dr. Ashford?

Uncle Curtis.

Hey, T.


What are you doing here?

Well, I had a check-up, and I decided to stick around and see you.

That’s great. I have a little break right now.


How was the checkup?

Eh, same.

There you are. Hey. And you’re here, too.

Hey, Molly.

This is perfect.

What’s going on?

I have news to share.

I just don’t want any more excuses. Do you understand?

Yeah. I’m done — just let me know. That’s it.

[ Door opens ]



Drew Cain was attacked and beaten up.


They told me it’s bad.

How bad?

They took him to the hospital.

You home late last night and you left so early for work this morning, I didn’t get a chance to talk to you.

I know. Can we talk about this later? I’m really busy today.

But, Mom, I just need to talk to you a few minutes about Charlotte. It’s important.

[ Elevator bell dings ]

Okay — wait by the planter, please.

Carly: Where is he? Where’s Drew?

He’s in the ICU, but he’s been taken for some tests.

Did you see him?


How’s he look? Did he say anything?

Carly, he hasn’t regained consciousness since the beating.

Please tell me he’s gonna be okay.

Drew is getting the best care possible. We just have to wait until the tests come back.

Elizabeth, I know you’re just trying to be professional, but please tell me what’s really going on. Or I’m just gonna call Monica because Drew’s her son and she’ll tell me.

No, Monica is in Berlin at a conference, and there is no need to notify her until we know more. Now, Drew put you down as his emergency contact. The doctor will talk to you as soon as he has any information.

He should have never been in that prison.

I know.

[ Sighs ] I know you think this is my fault. And it is. It’s 100% my fault.

No, no. Carly, Drew made his own choices. And this is not about blame. I have to go talk to my son.

Jake’s here?

Yeah. He’s here about something else. I haven’t told him anything yet. He already lost his dad and then Franco. And at one point, Drew was a father figure in his life. If he loses him, too…

It’s okay. You know, sometimes it helps if you talk about your bad dream.

I don’t even remember what it was about.

Yeah. That happens to me, you know? Sometimes when I have a bad dream, I concentrate and I realize it was something that happened in the past. And sometimes it’s something that I did the day before.

[ Chuckles ]

[ Door opens ]

Papa, you’re here.

Charlotte, uh, had a bad dream.

I’m so sorry to just spring this on you. I would have built up to it, but I walked in so late.

No, it’s okay. I had a great conversation with the manager while I was waiting.

Oh, Kristina. Yeah. She’s the best.

Yeah, she seems like a cool person.

She’s super cool. She sings, too.

Yeah, she sang at the Nurses’ Ball. She was terrific. I found the video online. She was great. I think it embarrassed her that I watched it. You know, people who aren’t in the business tend to be embarrassed by their talents. But you are in the business, and i am here with a proposal of how to get you front and center, how to get your career to the next level. Now, since you dumped that sleaze Linc, the public really hasn’t heard much from you. You and I are gonna change that.

Mom, I swear to you, I have given Molly all the space that she has asked for.

Honey, this isn’t anything bad. In fact, it’s good news. Molly just found out from her surrogate that she’s pregnant. So Molly and TJ are having a baby.

Oh, my gosh.

I was gonna wait until you got off of work to tell you, but I was too excited.

[ Chuckles ] Well, look, you guys probably want to be alone. I can peace out —

No, no, no, no. I — I really am glad you’re here because I want you to know. I want the whole family to know. It worked. [ Laughs ] Andrea is pregnant.

[ Exhales sharply ] We’re having a — we’re having a baby?

We’re — we’re having a baby. We’re having a baby!

[ Laughter ] Molly: We’re having a baby!

[ Pounding on table ] What the hell happened? I told you to make certain that Drew is off limits.

That is exactly what I told Book when I visited him at the prison. I made sure everyone knew that Drew was being protected by Sonny Corinthos.

Who’s after him?

That’s what I’m trying to find out.

Somebody went against my orders?


Okay, well, that someone needs to be punished.

What do you want me to do?

We’re gonna find out who it is and we’re gonna make him pay. Where’s Drew right now?

They took him to G.H..

Let’s go.

Trey, can you give us a moment, please? I think that we — we need to clear the air.

No, we don’t. I should have never come to your house. I should have called first. [ Voice breaking ] But I — I really needed to see Curtis. I just needed to apologize, and…I’m sorry.

But Curtis doesn’t blame you.

I know. He was extremely gracious.

And I wasn’t.

That’s not what I’m… there wasn’t one word of what you said that was unjustified.

I know that, but it was out of proportion. You were there, and it was convenient for me to focus all of my anger on you. But you didn’t deserve all of it.

“All of it.”

Se I will let you know as soon as I hear anything.

But it could be a long wait.

I’m not going anywhere, not until I see Drew.

Are you gonna tell Jake?

I don’t know.

Go. I’m sorry. Go.

[ Sighs ] Jake. Sorry that took so long. But I am working and I don’t have a lot of time. What did you want to tell me?

I was with Charlotte last night.

The dream was nothing. I don’t even remember it. I’m just glad you came.

Well, what have you guys been up to?

Well, we went to Kelly’s for some breakfast. That was a great breakfast, wasn’t it? And then we did some window shopping. We saw some really great ideas for winter clothes. Isn’t that right?

Yes. ‘And then we came back here and she read Crimson Magazine and she fell asleep.

Well, why don’t we go do something together?


It’s a surprise. But I bet it’s gonna make that bad dream fly right out of your head.

I’ll go get my jacket.

What if she was dreaming about what she did to Anna?

Who knows? I just hope what I have planned is gonna make us all move right past it.

I apologize for my actions the other night. I’m still angry. I’m angry that, um, Curtis was collateral damage because someone was targeting you or Sonny. And I know — I know you did not pull the trigger. But Curtis is in a wheelchair. He’s in a wheelchair through no fault of his own. You know, it’s one thing to take responsibility for your own actions. But it’s just a whole different thing to have to pay the price for someone else’s.

So, these are some platforms that I think might help to get you back out in the public eye. You know, concerts, social media, uh, potential producers, collaborators. Interesting.


And, look, I know how important it is for you to be you and not some image like the one that Linc conjured up. So, I am open to suggestions.

I can see you put a lot of work into it.

I did.

You’re really into this, aren’t you?

Yes. Look, I enjoyed trying to push Chase’s career. He’s an amazing performer. But if your heart’s not in it, then what’s the point? But you, Blaze, you are so committed. I could see it in your performances. And I hope you know how much I respect you and would never do anything to make you feel uncomfortable or dishonest, which is why I am so excited to sign you as my first client.


And you are such a unique talent. You know, that’s something I don’t think Linc ever really saw. You have a great style, and I really want to help you, you know, reach the next level in your career, not just through business, but through songwriting.

I said okay.

Excuse me?


Wait, are — are you saying yes?

I am, yes. I’m in.

Oh, my — just like that?!

Just like that. Brook Lynn, you stood up for me when everyone else looked away. I’m not sure I would have been able to get away from Linc if it hadn’t been for you.

So, Molly just found out?


Wow. Wait, isn’t this a little early in the pregnancy to be telling people?

It is, and I promised Molly, actually, that when I told you, I would say that we cautiously have good news. So, it’s Molly’s decision, and I thought it would be great if we could all be supportive together.

Of course. Yeah. No, they must be really excited. I know that both Molly and TJ really want this baby. Fingers crossed. It’s all worked out for them. It has.


Nothing. I — it just would have been really nice if I could have that moment with my sister you know, where she tells me herself and I got to see the look on her face, and instead, I’m hearing it secondhand. And if I’m honest, it hurts a little.

Congratulations. This is great news.

I know it’s early, and some people think I should have waited, but Andréa is already glowing, and she’s so positive about everything.

Did she call this morning or…

Oh, no. She actually came to the courthouse to tell me in person. My mom was there, so she already knows. And — and you can tell Portia and the rest of the family.

Does anyone else know?

Mom is gonna tell Kristina. I hope that’s okay.

You were with Charlotte? I thought you were with your friend angus.

I’m sorry. I — I guess I was just kind of embarrassed that I was seeing Charlotte again.


She’s a girl.

And you feel the need to tell me this now?

You want to know where we are. And I shouldn’t have said I was seeing Angus. And Charlotte was taking all these selfies of the two of us.

Oh, okay. I see. So you were afraid that if she posted them, I would find out.

I’m sorry, Mom.

I’ll stay on it and see what I can find out. And I’ll make that call for you.

You promised to protect him.

I’m sorry.

Drew is fighting for his life. We put him in danger by asking him to get information.

Drew said he wanted to find out who Austin was visiting in Pentonville.

To protect you!

Yeah, but —

I asked him to protect you.

Look, I’m sure — he’s a smart guy. I’m sure when he asked questions, he was careful.

Really? Then why is he in the hospital right now?

Sounds like maybe you have a thing for Charlotte.

Stop it, Mom.

What? I’m just saying. You’ve been spending a lot of time with her lately. So, tell me — what is it that you like about her?

Everything. Plus, she likes me.

What are we doing here? Whose house is this?

See for yourself.


[ Lock disengages ]

I’m glad that we spoke. You haven’t said too much.

No, I know. Well… I think you summed it up pretty well.

Well, I know that you and Curtis got closer from the time that you spent in Greenland. And I hope you know how much I appreciate what you did to help save my daughter.

It was a group effort.

I’m just trying here. I’m just trying to clear the air.

No, no, I know. I know. You don’t have to apologize. Because you’re right. Curtis doesn’t deserve to suffer the consequences meant for someone else. No one does.

And I heard about your home, how your house burned down and you lost everything. I am so sorry.

Oh, you know, it’s things. It’s just — it’s just things. I think we’ve both been through enough to know that things aren’t important.

The fire could have cost you a lot more. And I’m glad you’re okay. Curtis also told me the story about how you saved Valentin’s life. Wow. [ Laughs ] And the two of you are closer now. I’m glad you have someone in your life.

Thank you.

[ Sighs ]

Anna: Whatever he’s lying about, it’s not that he burned down our home. I just sort of feel like each new layer that gets peeled back… …I get to see who you really are. Like maybe I never knew you.

I love you. That’s all you’ll ever need to know.

Is it? You’re not answering my question.

Is that true?

Yes. Unfortunately, it is true. I wasn’t at ELQ the night of the fire.

Did you talk to security? Was there anything on the tapes?

There was nothing there.

What? How is that possible? There’s cameras everywhere.

Anna, the footage from this floor was missing.

Trey, can we meet down in the car? I, um — I’m perfectly safe here.


Blaze, I let what happened with you and Linc go on for way too long.

Well, so did I. I mean, if you hadn’t finally stepped in, who knows what could have happened?

I should have stepped in way sooner.

Stop. Look at the two of us. Not to pat ourselves on the back, but do you think anyone who met us wouldn’t think we were both very strong women?

Well, if they didn’t, we wouldn’t hesitate to correct them.

Exactly. Yet somehow both of us managed to let a man like Linc take advantage of us. You know, I think back, and I still can’t believe it. I went to support groups for survivors of emotional and physical abuse. There were women in there like us, strong, intelligent women who went through the same thing. Guys like Linc are predators who’ve had a lot of practice. They know exactly what buttons to push, what vulnerabilities to take advantage of, and they do it all with a slimy smile on their face. And seeing you put Linc in his place was absolutely priceless. You exposed him to everyone for exactly who he was. And now he’s canceled. Amen to that.

Drew is tough, Carly. He’s gonna get through this.

How do you know? He hasn’t even regained consciousness. He was beaten so badly, who knows if he even will?

Okay, I just got to figure out who did this.

And then what, Sonny?

As soon as he gets better, Diane’s gonna do everything she can to get him released from Pentonville.

But will he be alive to even get released?

So, did you bring papers, or is there a contract I can sign on that fancy tablet of yours?

Sure you don’t want to take some time, think it over?

I know I can count on you not just to promote me, but to care about me.

I do.

What about Deception?

Look, I really like the people, but that world never really spoke to me.

Well, it’s speaking in all caps now. Did this have anything to do with you going into music management?

Bad news travels fast.

Do you think it’s possible you’re being a little overly sensitive about this?

How? My own sister can’t even pick up the phone and call me to tell me the news herself?

Because she was excited and wanted to have lunch with the surrogate. They wanted to celebrate.

Mom, did she really ask you to tell me, or was this perhaps your idea?

Well, I know — oh, my god, this is unbelievable. It just really — it just keeps getting better and better.

Please don’t do this.

Do what? My sister has has explicitly singled me out from being completely hands off to her surrogacy journey. And now my mother has to go and — and beg her to let me in on the news that the baby’s on its way?

I didn’t beg her. And the baby is far from being on its way. Honey, we both know how much pressure Molly’s been under. And, quite frankly, I don’t think that she’s even been able to process the fact that she wasn’t able to get pregnant. But now that the surrogate is pregnant, maybe she will relax and we can just support her and maybe give her some space.

Mom, I am giving her all the space she has asked for. I mean, really, am I — am I honestly that overbearing? She — she’s my sister. How does she not want a relationship with me?

No, I think it’s great that your mom is telling Kristina.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

But for now, let’s — let’s just keep it family, okay?

Oh, of course.

Okay. Oh, this is the office. I’ll just be a minute.

So… you’re gonna be a dad.

[ Both laugh ]

In nine months, if all goes well.

Well, so far, so good, right?

Right, right.

Um, would I be wrong in assessing that you are overjoyed? Because honestly, nephew, I have never seen you so happy.

I mean, how could I be happier? I’m gonna be a dad.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

It’s beautiful, Papa.

Oh. Uh, will you excuse me for a second? Hey, Dex. What’s up?

Sorry to bother you, Nina. I know you were supposed to meet Sonny at The Metro Court in a little while.

Is something wrong?

No, but he had to come to G.H.. Drew Cain is here.

Is he okay?

Not sure. He was beaten up pretty badly in Pentonville.

[ Stammers ] Well, thank you for letting me know, Dex.

The lot is a little more than two acres, and we’re less than half a mile from Winding Roads Stables.

That’s where butterscotch is boarded.

And we’re just a short drive from your school.

It’s perfect. Are you thinking of buying it?

No, I’m not thinking of buying it.

That’s okay.

Because I already bought it.

Oh, papa! This is our house? For real? For real?

I know it’s been a long time coming, but from now on, this is our home.

I love it.

Carly, don’t go to the worst-case scenario. Don’t do that.

I love him. And Drew might die because someone told the SEC what we did, and then some power-hungry judge gave him an insane sentence for it just to further his career. It’s wrong, Sonny. It’s all wrong.

You think that guy from Pikeman might have had something to do with Drew getting attacked?

Why would Pikeman care about Drew Cain?

Well, if they found out that you’re protecting him, might have been their way to send you a message. The guy’s threat wasn’t exactly subtle.

Good thinking, Dex. But let me tell you something. There’s a lot of people in Pentonville who would have it in for Drew if they knew he was helping me. A lot of guys in there for the other families who are locked up, right? Any of these names jump out? You see all those guys? They would love to take me down.

I’ll keep pushing. And I made that call to Nina.

[ Elevator bell dings ]

Portia: Molly! TJ! I’m so happy for both of you! Oh, my goodness!

Molly: Thank you.


Well, I think that we should celebrate at the savoy ’cause my dad just managed to book Eddie Maine.

Oh. And you’ll be there?

I will be there.

Okay, well, we’ll see you later.

Okay. You know what? We should get ready, too.

Go on and get out of here, get ready for tonight.


Want to hang around?

No, no, you go ahead and go. I’ll — if I need you, I’ll let you know.

Sweetie, you are not overbearing. Maybe a little impatient.

I just — I feel like, with the way things are going right now, it just — I feel like I’m never gonna get my sister back.

Since you have this instinct that you have inherited from me, sometimes it’s best not to tackle a problem head on.

Mom, what am I supposed to do? Just sit around and wait?

Yes. This baby is a blessing for Molly and TJ, and just let them have their moment. And when they’re ready, they’ll reach out.

Okay. I-I really am happy for her, Mom.

I know you are. And I know that Molly knows that, too. Anyway, you’ve got big things to do right now. Diane said that you have your first board meeting for the youth center.

Yes, I do, and I’m very excited about that, but I’m not excited about talking about my least favorite topic first — fundraising.

Fundraising. Yeah. I know. That’s a drag. But you have to come up with an idea to get people all pumped up.

Yeah. Yeah. I’ve been racking my brain to think about something, and I just…

Actually, I think — I think I might have a really good idea.

“Brook Lynn Quartermaine, infamous trust fund wannabe, “fired from her job at deception cosmetics “amidst lawsuit turmoil. “Sources close tell us the Quartermaine princess “is out as a result of allegations “regarding the hot Deceptor wand. “What’s next for the former warbler? “She seems to be zero for zero. “While nobody can fault BLQ, “her singing career being unceremoniously slashed short “due to a freak attack, “we can wonder about her suspicious exit from deception — perhaps it’s all in the name.” This had to be Lucy. Blaze, I swear to you, this had nothing to do with me wanting to meet you. This article — it’s a hit piece.

You think I haven’t had some myself? Mine are usually accompanied by an incredibly unflattering picture. It’s no big deal. Don’t worry about it.



Thank you.

But it was really a low blow to make light of you being attacked. It’s not easy losing the one thing you love more than anything in life.

I’m glad you told me about Charlotte. But I have to get back to work. Will you head home?

Okay. Look, there’s Carly. Uh, can I go ask her about Uncle Drew? You said I could go visit him, but it’s been so long.

Wait. There’s something I have to tell you about your Uncle Drew.

Sonny: Drew’s a smart guy. I’m sure he was very careful in how he went about asking questions.

[ Sighs ]

Carly: Ava, I just came back from Pentonville, from visiting Drew. Sonny and I went there to ask for his help. Sonny wants him to find out who your friend Austin visited when he was there.

Ava. Ava!

[ Voice breaking ] Uncle Drew has to be okay, Mom.

The moment I know anything, I will call you.

No, no. I want to be here to find out. Please.

I am at G.H. on the 10th floor. Get here as soon as you can, Ava.

[ Sighs heavily ] What are you doing here?

I heard what happened to Drew.

Carly, they’re taking Drew for emergency surgery.

What? Emergency surgery? Why? What happened?

I don’t have any details, but Dr. Reyes will be here soon to give you an update.

Oh, please let him be okay. Please.

Thank you for the brilliant idea.

I have no idea what that idea was, but you’re welcome.

And I know I was a little hard on you before, but I do really appreciate you coming to tell me about the baby and the news yourself.

You and Molly are gonna get through this because my girls love each other.

You just be the strong one for Molly this time, okay?

Promise. I adore you.

[ Chuckles ] And I love you. Love you.

If anyone could understand what it would be like, it’d be you.

Singing was everything to me. For it to just be taken away suddenly, forever.

How’d you even deal with it?

I had a lot of help. You know, Chase made me realize that there were a lot of different ways that I could use whatever talent I have.

But you never really lost your love for music.

Ugh. Not even close. It’s in my blood. My dad’s a musician. My mom was a music manager.


Oh, yeah. Lois Cerullo — she is quite a character. You would really like her. She always says the old cliché, “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.”

“Make lemonade.”

[ Chuckling ] Yeah. She’s got quite a style. It’s definitely her own.

Maybe she’ll want to meet your first client.

Really? You still want to sign with me?

Hell yeah.

[ Both laugh ]

Dr. Reyes: Ms. Spencer?

Yes? Is Drew conscious?

No. But that might have saved his life. He broke one of his ribs. X-rays showed that one of the shards of the ribs is threatening the aorta. Any unnecessary movement could have been fatal.

So, the surgery is gonna fix this?

That depends on many factors. But we have a specialist operating. The surgery will take a few hours. We won’t have any answers till it’s finished.

[ Sighs ] We seem to end up in the strangest places together.

Yeah, that’s true. Feel like maybe we should be here right now, though.

Remember when you asked me if it was worth it? The life that I chose?


I’m beginning to wonder.

And I think… we should put a tennis court right there.

[ Cellphone ringing ]

Oh, you know what? That’s the landscaper. I’ll be right back.



Yes, papa?

Is everything alright?

Everything’s going to be perfect.

[ Relaxing music ]

Scott: Thank you.

Deacon: Listen, really, I can’t thank you enough for coming through for me, for making sure that sheila was set free. She’s been a good friend.

Scott: Friend? Yeah, right. Okay, because I can’t imagine you calling in a favor this big for someon*e a great deal about.

Deacon: I do care about her. I mean, look, I get it, a lot of people, maybe they can’t understand that, but I think people can change, I think people can grow. Hell, look at me, you know? I got a chance to prove it to my friends, to my family. I just think she deserves the same chance.

Scott: Deacon, we go way back and– and I am– I’m really glad to see that you have pulled your life together. And now we’re even, right?

Deacon: Absolutely. Even.

[ Both laughing ]

Li: She’s terrorized our family long enough. You have to deal with her.

Finn: I agree. I’ll make it absolutely clear that she’s not welcome in my life.

Li: That’s not strong enough. She will never walk away as long as she knows that– that you love her. You have to make her believe 100% that you will have nothing to do with her ever again. That what you feel for her is the opposite of love. It’s loathing for what she did to you and your family. You have to be cold, harsh. If she sees an ounce of emotion or hesitation, she will never leave us alone. This is the way we might get her to leave los angeles for good.

Hope: Your heart.

Thomas: Mm.

Hope: It’s beating so fast.

Thomas: Mm. Yours too.

Hope: Say it again, thomas. I just want to hear it one more time.

Thomas: I love you. No matter what you’re feeling for me, no matter what’s happening, I’m always loving you.

Hope: That means so much to hear. Thomas, but I– I don’t want to hurt you.

Thomas: I know. I know you don’t want to hurt me and right now, maybe you don’t know what to feel, but that’s okay. Having you right here, so close to you, it’s all I need. It doesn’t matter because I’ve got enough love for the both of us.

Finn: Look, mom. I’m so sorry, okay? For all of this. I see how hurt you are and how upset. I wish I could just take it all away.

Li: You can. You know what to do. I love you so much. I thank god every day you’re my son, but I hate that sheila is your biological mother. I hate that she has any connection to you at all. I wish I didn’t feel like this, but I can’t help it. I don’t ever want to see sheila’s face ever again. I want her out of our lives for good. Tell me you want the same thing.

Scott: You got a lot of history with sheila, huh?

Deacon: Yeah, you can say that.

Scott: Okay, but you know that she’s–

Deacon: Scott, she’s done some terrible things, I know that and I don’t make excuses for it, but when I look at her, I see something different, you know? I think she’s changed. And you know, she hasn’t had the easiest go of it either. I mean, when you’re constantly told that you’re never gonna be loved or that you don’t even deserve love? You know, and you’re faced with contempt from everyone in your life? Come on, man. That takes a toll on you after a while. And if everyone tells you that you’re a monster and you just keep hearing it over and over again, I don’t know, maybe you start believing it. And monsters sometimes do monstrous things. But it doesn’t have to stay that way. You’d be amazed what a little love could do.

Li: I can’t let go of this anger. This fear. I hate that sheila has any connection to you at all. I will never forgive your father for his affair so many years ago. He lied. He lied every day of our marriage. Let me believe that you were only adopted. Not his biological son. His lovechild with that psychopath. Because of his betrayal, sheila is allowed to terrorize us, threaten your safety, take your family away from you. Now, that is unforgivable. And make no mistake. Sheila knew your father was married. Please tell me you could never forgive her either.

Finn: Of course, I won’T. Okay? I’m never gonna forgive sheila for what she’s done.

Li: Even now, I can see you’re conflicted. Why?

Finn: I am not conflicted.

Li: You have a son. You know what it’s like to be a parent, to love someone so much that it’s almost terrifying because what if something happens to them?

Finn: Yes, I do. And that’s why I’m doing everything in my power to make sure sheila stays away from my family.

Li: Sheila is cancer, finn. You’re a doctor. You know sometimes what we do to remedy a cancer. We cut it out.

Scott: Deac, from the way you’re talking, I can only assume you and sheila are involved.

Deacon: Yeah, it’s pretty surprising, even to me. Hey, and it’s also a secret not many people know. Ridge and bill know.

Scott: Two pretty influential people.

Deacon: Yeah.

Scott: You– you do remember that sheila shot steffy, ridge’s daughter and steffy’s husband? I– I can’t imagine that ridge is too happy about you being in a relationship with sheila.

Deacon: We’re trying to be discreet, and you know what? Frankly, ridge doesn’t get a say so in my love life.

Scott: So, you know everything that sheila’s done, including these murder charges, and yet, you didn’t want to see her go to prison for the rest of her life. You decided to intervene.

Deacon: Well, hey, they say she’s the crazy one, but…

Scott: Okay. I can’t say I understand it.

Deacon: You know what, evan? I can’t say I understand it all the time either, but it felt right and I don’t have any regrets.

Thomas: I wanna show you how much I love you. And you can love me just as much as I love you. You just have to let go. Hope, just… just give me a chance. Let go. Hi. I use febreze fade defy plug.

Hope: It’s, um… it’s never been like this for me before, thomas.

Thomas: Me either.

[ Hope chuckling ]

Hope: Still, there’s just… there’s something about you.

Thomas: What is it?

Hope: It’s in the way you look at me. It’s the way you talk to me. I don’t have any doubts. I know that there is no other woman. That your heart, it isn’t divided. And it feels good to know that you are… absolutely devoted to me.

Li: Focus on your family, finn. It is the most important thing you’ll have this life. I know because mine is fractured and it kills me.

Finn: I think about steffy and the kids every minute of every day.

Li: Then you get them home. Do whatever it takes. Don’t forget what you’re fighting for. Your happiness, your life. Nothing less than that is on the line.

Finn: Mom, don’t you see? I hate coming home to this house without them. I miss them so much, I can’t sleep at night. And when I finally do, I wake up thinking that they’re gonna be here, but I reach over and steffy’s side of the bed is cold. And I know that when I see those kids, they’re gonna– they’re gonna be so big and I will have missed all that.

Li: You know what to do. You get that monster out of your life. Be firm. Steffy has to absolutely believe that sheila will never be a threat again.

Deacon: Hey, listen to me. I want to thank you for your assistance. I know that this was a big ask.

Scott: I’m happy to help. And anyway, it wasn’t that much of a stretch. The case against sheila was based on an illegal search and seizure by bill spencer.

Deacon: Yeah, I know that. I mean, I get it, but you know, you still made sure that she walked out of there free and for that, I will always be grateful to you.

Scott: I’m gonna congratulate you because it’s clearly the outcome you wanted. But deacon, you gotta be careful with a woman like sheila carter. Just make sure you know what you’re doing because I may not be able to help you next time.

Deacon: There’s not gonna be a next time.

Scott: I hope you’re right, but until then, you take care. It’s good to see you, man. And how about, what do you say next time we have a meal and no favors, all right? Yeah.

Deacon: Come on. I’ll walk you out.

Scott: Okay.

Sheila: I– I can’t believe what I’m seeing. Drinks for two? (Man) mm, hey, honey.

Hope: You seem to always know what I want to hear.

Thomas: That I’m a one woman man?

[ Hope laughing ] You are everything that I need, hope. I love you. It’s a love that feels like romeo and juliet. To my dying day, I will love you.

Finn: Hey, it’s me. I was hoping to catch you, but you must be busy with the kids. I, uh… I miss you guys so much. Um… and those pictures that you sent, I just can’t believe how much kelly and hayes have changed already. Look, I know that you need to feel safe before you and the kids can come home. I’ll make sure you’re safe, steffy. I promise you. I love you. We’ll be together soon.

Deacon: I just had a little business meeting, that’s all. You know, when you own the joint, there’s always something, right?

Sheila: A, uh… a business meeting?

Deacon: Yeah, yeah. It’s still so strange just to see you out in the world, not holed up in the apartment.

Sheila: Is it? I mean, strange, deacon?

Deacon: Well, you’re acting kind of strange at the moment. What’s going on?

Sheila: I don’t know. Maybe I’M… I’m getting used to being a free woman. I really thought I was gonna spend the rest of my life behind bars in prison. Wow, then miraculously, I’m– I’m released.

Deacon: Come on. That wasn’t a miracle. Bill botched the investigation.

Sheila: True. Bill is an idiot, but he’s still very powerful. Things could’ve easily gone his way. I think it was a miracle. I think there was an outside force that intervened to make sure that I live a life of freedom. A life where I could love my son and my grandson.

Deacon: Sheila, you know that I’m glad you’re out. I– I just want you to live your life and be happy, but I gotta get back to work. You know, we already said our goodbyes and this is not making it easier. Listen, just, uh, stay here, order something on me, okay?

Sheila: Wait, wait, wait. Deacon, I can’t– I can’t leave you like this.

Deacon: Sheila, we talked about this. We cannot be seen here together.

Sheila: I can’t leave you without you knowing how much I appreciate everything that you said, how much all of it means to me.

Deacon: I know, sheila.

Sheila: I’m not a monster. And… you really believe that.

Deacon: Of course, I do.

Sheila: You always see something different in me. Maybe I’m worthy of a life that I never had. Worthy of my freedom. Worthy of a relationship with my son. Worthy of… love. You know, all I’ve ever wanted in my life is to be loved. I know I’m certainly capable of giving it, but maybe, I just– I might… be deserving of receiving it too.

Deacon: Where’s all this coming from?

Sheila: I saw you. I saw who you were with. You were with the judge that presided over my case, judge scott and I heard everything that you said. All of it. It was– it was all because of you that I’m a free woman today. How do I ever thank you for something like that, deacon? How do I ever do that?

Days Update Monday, September 25, 2023

Days of Our Lives Update

Days of Our Lives logo

Update written by Joseph

Kate goes to the Brady Pub and informs Roman that she just ran in to Kayla and apparently, Sarah Horton gave birth to their grandchild and no one told them.

In the town square, Philip asks if Rex has shared any of this news with their mother. Rex admits he hasn’t yet because he feels guilty lying to her. Philip questions what he’s lying about. Rex then reveals to Philip that he’s not really the baby’s father. Philip asks what he means. Chloe comes out of the nearby shop with her wedding dress right as she hears Rex reveal to Philp that Xander is Victoria’s father. Chloe listens in as Rex repeats to Philip that he’s not joking that Xander is the father of Sarah’s baby.

Xander visits Sarah and baby Victoria in the hospital. Xander asks if she has recovered from the scare after the birth. Sarah confirms she’s being discharged today and asks what brings him by. Xander responds that he just has something that he wanted to tell her. Sarah thinks back to Maggie arguing that Xander has a right to know he’s the baby’s father. Sarah then informs Xander that there’s something she has to tell him too.

Alex goes to Titan and tells Vivian that he got her text, so he asks what the hell she wants. Vivian tells Alex that she needs a right hand man at Titan and claims that he is her first and only choice for the position. Vivian says she has big plans for Titan and thinks he’s exactly the right thing. Alex remarks that he’s very grateful for the opportunity so that he can tell her to take her job and shove it.

Maggie and Justin talk about now knowing Victor destroyed his old will and had a new one created in Greece. They wonder if visiting Bo had something to do with it and what changes he made. Justin declares there’s only one way to find out.

Xander asks Sarah what her news is but she tells him to go first. Xander then informs Sarah that he and Chloe are getting married today. Xander says he just wanted her to hear it from him first. Sarah calls that very considerate and congratulates him. Xander then asks what she wanted to tell him.

Chloe hides as she remains listening in as Philip questions why Rex has been telling everyone that the baby is his. Rex explains that Sarah asked him to because Sarah and Xander were happily married until Sarah found out about Xander kidnapping Susan and Bonnie, so when Sarah found out that she was pregnant, she didn’t want someone capable of doing those horrible things like Xander to be the father, so he stepped in. Rex realizes that he might be bringing stuff up for Philip like with Claire. Philip feels this is totally different because Xander is a criminal so he understands. Rex continues explaining how Sarah moved to Chicago so no one found out she was pregnant, including her own mother.

Maggie tells Justin that he’s the lawyer so he should read the will. Justin then begins reading Victor’s new will. Justin reads that in the course of creating this will, his lawyer discovered that Victor’s divorce to Vivian was never finalized, therefore his marriage to Maggie was never official and he intended to rectify this as soon as he returned to Salem. Justin reads that Victor intended to finalize his divorce and make Maggie his wife as soon as possible. Justin reads that Victor left 50% of his entire estate to Maggie. Justin then hugs Maggie.

Sarah claims to Xander that she just wanted to tell him that she and Rex are also getting married today. Xander calls it quite a coincidence and asks if she’s sure she’s up for it. Sarah repeats that she’s getting discharged and now that her baby is here, they want to make their little family official. Xander understands that she wants her daughter to have her father’s name.

Chloe continues listening as Philip asks how Rex ended up playing baby daddy. Rex informs him that Bonnie came to visit Mimi and Emily in Chicago. Philip jokes that he’s not surprised Bonnie is involved. Rex adds that Bonnie came over to his apartment and found a very pregnant Sarah, so he immediately jumped in to say the kid is his but Bonnie didn’t buy it, though Sarah convinced her to stay silent. Rex adds that Justin and Maggie know as well but they are all keeping it secret from Xander because that’s what Sarah wants. Philip and Rex agree that Xander and Sarah would be bonded for life and she’d never get rid of him if he knew. Rex asks Philip not to tell anyone. Philip says he is not loyal to Xander and he wouldn’t want to mess things up for Rex as he knows he never stopped loving Sarah and now they are getting married. Rex states that for Sarah, the wedding is just about protecting her child but for him, he’s made it very clear that he’s doing everything he can to win her back for real. Philip adds that will be a lot easier without Xander sniffing around. Philip gives his word that he will keep his mouth shut. Rex thanks him, especially since telling the truth would clear a path for Philip and Chloe.

Kate informs Roman that Sarah’s water broke after Victor’s funeral and they didn’t even make it to the hospital but Kayla said their granddaughter is fine and they named her Victoria. Roman wants to get to the hospital to see their brand new grandbaby but Kate stops him and says not so fast.

Vivian is disappointed as she thought Alex would take her offer. Alex asks why she would think that, knowing they despise him. Vivian asks what she ever did to him. Alex brings up everything Vivian has done to his family, arguing that Bonnie and Maggie are his family. Vivian remarks that she didn’t know he cared about Maggie.

Maggie says thank you to Victor and realizes that Victor knew that he was still married to Vivian. Justin notes that the changes were already in motion. Maggie calls it so much to process. Justin encourages that Victor was madly in love with Maggie and couldn’t wait to marry her. Maggie wishes they got that chance as it is painful to know their marriage wasn’t real. Justin brings up being at their wedding and being the one to pronounce them husband and wife. Justin talks about the love in the room that day and throughout the years they spent together, so an improperly filed paper doesn’t change that. Maggie admits the mystery surrounding Victor’s will hasn’t been easy on her. Maggie says she doesn’t care about the money but it was knowing Vivian was going to get everything and she wondered if Victor’s feelings about her had changed. Justin encourages that she no longer has to worry and he can’t wait to see the look on Vivian’s face when she finds out she is inheriting nothing. Maggie points out that’s unless Victor left Vivian the other 50% of his estate. Justin says there’s no chance, but he is curious about the other half.

Xander asks Sarah where she and Rex are getting married. Sarah says Rex is going to ask his parents if they can just do it at the Pub. Sarah asks Xander the same. Xander explains that Chloe’s family are all in New York, so they are going to hop on a plane in a couple of hours. Xander adds that it will be his first time meeting Chloe’s son Parker, so he hopes he doesn’t hate his guts. Sarah encourages that he’ll be fine and to just be himself. Sarah tells Xander that he’ll be a great dad. he asks if she really thinks so.

Chloe remains listening in as Rex tells Philip that if Xander found out, there’s a good chance that he would try to get Sarah back which would free Chloe up for Philip. Philip responds that he’s not going down that road again. Philip admits he still loves Chloe but feels it’s too late for them because he screwed up too many times. Rex disagrees with that. Philip states that Chloe is with Xander which is better for Rex, Sarah, and the baby which is all that matters. Rex hugs Philip and says he appreciates him. Rex tells Philip that he has one more favor and asks Philip to officiate the wedding. Philip says he would be honored. Rex tells him that getting ordained online is really quick. Rex says he has to pick up Sarah and the baby, so he’ll meet him at the Pub as he rushes off. Chloe then walks away as well.

Roman questions Kate not wanting to meet their granddaughter. Kate says she does but complains that Rex didn’t even tell them so she thinks they should wait. Roman knows she’s hurt but thinks she is being petty. Kate argues that Rex had two days to text or call. Roman argues that she knows what it’s like having a newborn with total chaos and no sleep. Kate feels it’s more than that. Kate talks about Rex not telling them from the beginning that he and Sarah were back together. Roman acknowledges it was a little strange. Kate declares that something’s not right about this.

Alex tells Vivian that he and Maggie are getting along just fine now and she’s also grieving the husband that she just lost. Alex says he wants no part of compounding her pain. Vivian remarks that Alex reminds her of his mother, Anjelica Deveraux. Alex questions her knowing his mother. Vivian says she knew her through Victor and she was cut throat and shrewd, which she thinks are Alex’s instincts too. Alex admits Victor said the same thing about him having a killer instinct. Vivian encourages him to embrace that instinct and come work for her at Titan to make Victor proud.

Justin continues reading the rest of Victor’s will and reads that the other 50% of his estate including controlling interest in Titan would go to his son. Maggie questions which son. Justin says Victor knew Bo was in a coma, so he wouldn’t think it would be him. Maggie points out that it must be Philip then. Justin says it’s possible but Kate said they had a separate trust made for him. Maggie tells Justin to keep reading, so he continues reading about how Victor made medical arrangements to take care of Bo and Philip indefinitely but neither of them are the son that he’s referring to. Maggie doesn’t understand. Justin reads that Victor’s son receiving the other half of his estate is one that he has never acknowledged.

Sarah encourages Xander that she thinks he’s capable of being a very loving father or stepfather as she saw how he was with Mackenzie. Sarah acknowledges that he switched the babies to spare her pain. Xander knows he just made things worse. Sarah says that he makes bad decisions and sometimes they come from a good place but sometimes they don’t and either way, people get hurt. Xander talks about wanting to be a good man for Parker and hopes this time it will be different. Xander says he should get going so he doesn’t miss his flight. Xander wishes Sarah luck with her wedding. Sarah hopes he and Chloe are very happy together as he then exits the room.

Roman tells Kate that she’s right that Rex’s behavior has been a little off. Roman suggests maybe Rex is angry at them. Roman wonders if maybe Kate did something to rub Rex the wrong way since she has been known to alienate her kids from time to time. Philip arrives and jokes that he knows that. Kate asks if Philip knew that Sarah had her baby. Philip confirms that Kayla told him. Kate feels at least they aren’t the only ones then if Rex didn’t even tell his brother. Philip mentions that he actually just ran in to Rex. Kate asks if he mentioned why he neglected to tell the family about his baby. Philip says he better let Rex answer that as he’s coming to see them after he picks up Sarah and the baby. Kate feels now Philip is acting just like Rex as she questions what is going on and what he’s not telling her. Philip claims it’s nothing which Kate calls an obvious lie. Philip remarks that he thought Vivian was being aggressive in offering him a job at Titan but he turned her down flat. Kate can’t believe Vivian is trying to draw him in to her web again and declares this is not going to happen. Philip repeats that he already told her no. Kate has a few more things to say to Vivian and decides she’s going to give that bitch a piece of her mind. Kate then storms out of the Pub.

Alex tells Vivian that he is not a traitor, so he will not be betraying his family and partnering up with the enemy. Vivian argues that he’s already working for the enemy since Basic Black is owned by DiMera Enterprises. Alex says he doesn’t have to explain his career choices because his answer is no and that’s not going to change. Alex tells her to leave him alone and walks out. Vivian questions if anyone wants to work anymore.

Maggie asks Justin who the other son is. Justin has no idea and continues reading that Victor says this decision is not to punish his other sons but to make amends with the other son for cutting off his birthright since the day he was born. Victor wrote that after visiting Bo, he came to reflect on his legacy and realized this was a secret he could no longer keep as his son deserved to know the truth and he planned to tell him upon his return to Salem, but he’s also officially documenting it so there will be no confusion. Justin read that the attached letter would explain everything. They look in to the stack of letters from Victor’s briefcase and Maggie finds one that says it is to be included in the will. Maggie then begins reading the letter to Victor, saying they are so glad they’re finally on the same page about this because nothing is more important than the future of their son. Maggie reads that Victor was told to stick to the plan that no one could know he was the father of the child because it would cause immeasurable pain to a man they both love and it would devastate him. Justin realizes that this means Victor’s son was raised by someone in his own family. Maggie wonders who.

Kate goes to Titan and tells Vivian that they need to talk as she warns her to stay away from Philip. Vivian says she thought Philip would want to be part of his father’s legacy. Kate says not if it means working with her. Vivian asks if Kate is jealous of seeing her in this office. Kate says it makes her sick and Philip must too because he rejected her in record time which she must be used to from Kiriakis men. Kate tells Vivian that she will have to find someone else to do her dirty work. Vivian then asks how about Kate.

Rex joins Sarah in her hospital room as she just got the baby set up and got discharged so she was about to get dressed. Sarah asks if Rex asked his parents about the Pub. Rex responds that he thought they could ask them together when they go over there so they can meet the baby. Rex asks about the baby. Sarah says she’s great and even managed to sleep through a visit from Xander. Rex asks what he was doing there. Sarah informs him that Xander came to tell her that he and Chloe are also getting married today. Rex guesses it’s a big day for weddings. Rex knows he’s said a lot that it’s a big decision and asks if Sarah is having any second thoughts. Sarah declares that marrying Rex is the best decision for her, Victoria, and everyone.

Chloe goes home to Xander with her wedding dress. Xander talks about getting packed so they don’t miss their flight. Chloe thinks back to overhearing Rex and Philip talking about Sarah’s baby being Xander’s. Xander asks her if something is wrong. Chloe says she just can’t believe this is finally happening and goes to get packed.

Maggie tells Justin that someone in their family is Victor’s son and doesn’t know it. Justin advises her to keep reading the letter. Maggie continues reading that the secret was something to take to their graves while their son would never know Victor as their father, he would know him as an uncle. Maggie reads that the letter said it was best for everybody, especially little Alexander, revealing the letter was from Anjelica, shocking Justin.

Chloe returns to Xander with her bag packed and asks if he’s ready. Xander says he is and thanks Chloe for looking past all his faults and finding it in her heart to love him anyway. Xander can’t believe he got so lucky that she’s agreed to spend the rest of her life with him. Xander promises to work so hard to prove himself worthy of her love every day. Xander kisses her and gets ready to go but Chloe starts to cry and stops him, saying she’s sorry but she can’t marry him. Xander asks why. Chloe says it’s because of Sarah. Xander argues that they talked about this plenty of times and he’s totally over Sarah. Chloe then reveals to Xander that Sarah lied to him as Rex isn’t the father of her baby, Xander is.

Rex and Sarah bring baby Victoria to the Pub to meet Roman. Roman congratulates them and says he would’ve sent over a lot of food if he knew she had arrived and asks why they didn’t tell them. Rex explains that there was just a lot going on. Roman tells him not to worry about it and that all is forgiven now that he’s met his beautiful granddaughter. Roman adds that Kate is a whole different story as she’s pretty ticked off at him. Rex says he figured and asks where she is.

Kate questions Vivian thinking she’d want to work for her. Vivian admits she’s not her first choice but she admires her chops as a business woman. Kate argues that Vivian never admired anything about her. Vivian disagrees and says she always thought she was a worthy adversary. Vivian suggests they stop the animosity and team up together. Kate says if she thinks that’s ever going to happen, she’s completely out of her mind. Vivian tells Kate that it’s her loss and she can see herself out. Kate calls it a travesty that Vivian is in charge. Vivian says Kate can insult her all she wants, but she runs Victor’s company now and no one can stop her.

Justin argues that it can’t be right. Maggie points out that Anjelica signed the letter. Justin can’t believe that the child she’s talking about is Alex. Alex then walks in to the room.
